'.'Xll's well that ends well."
Dr. W. fofmson
N ISSUING this chronicle of the Hotsam and jetsam of
the year 1911-12, we reverently set apart this page,
with a befitting seriousness, for a brief record of the
life of him to whom the volume is dedicated. Dr. Jolm VVesley
Johnson was born at Richmond, Mississippi, April 5, 1852. His
father, T. H. J. Jolmson, enlisted in the Confederate army and
served as a faithful soldier until he lost his life in June, 1862. His
mother met the responsibilities thus thrown upon her by teaching
school. She prepared her son for entrance into the Pontotoc High
School, from which school he entered the University of Mississippi
in 1872. He spent four consecutive years here as a student, grad-
uating with the degree of B.A. in 1876. Immediately after his
graduation he was appointed Tutor and Librarian, serving in
the capacity of the former until June, 1881. From 1881 to
1886 he was Principal of Johnson Institute at Booneville, Mis-
sissippi. From that position he was recalled to the University
and appointed Principal of the Preparatory Department. From
1889 to 1899 he was successively Assistant Professor of Mathe-
matics and Natural History, Assistant Professor of Psysics and
Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy. During this
period he was absent from the University on leave for two years
H890-92j, pursuing advanced study in Physics in the universi-
ties of Goettingen and Leipsic. In 1892 he received his doctor's
degree from the latter university. In 1899 he was made Pro-
fessor of Physics: and from 1907 he was Professor of Physics
and Astronomy. I-Ie died on August 29, 1911, in the city of
Vhicago. His body rests in St. Peter's Vemetery in the town of
Oxford with others who in former years gave, as did he, their best
energies to the service of the University.
As has been said by another, t'Dr. Johnson gave his service
for others, and, like most men who so labor, he died early in the
strugglcf' According to the measure of earthly life he should
have been spared for another half-score of active years. Yet it
happens that for five years before his death he was older than
any other member of the faculty in the term of his labors. Dur-
ing the twenty-eight years of his connection with the institution
he gave himself devotedly to its welfare. Popular as he was in
the class-room, his interest in the students did not end there.
Nothing that touched their interests was foreign to his concern.
He was patient with sho1'tcomings and assiduous in his efforts
where help and encouragement might be most needed. He was
charitable, generous and painstaking with those who might have
loitered by the way but for the keen personal interest he mani-
fested in their success. To those who did not need that special
attention he gave an equal degree of care and service, stimulating
enthusiasm for the work of his department.
Dr. Johnson's interests and influence were not limited by his
department, nor yet by the University. He was active in State
educational meetings and was widely known and esteemed by
the teachers of the State. He was zealous as a worker in the af-
fairs of the community, devoted to his church and to its insti-
tutions. His large and tender heart was revealed in his love for
children. The children of his friends and the waifs on thestreet
appealed to him alike. His gentle nature was manifest, too, in his
love for music and for Howers. Indeed, to all things that touch
the affections of men he was responsive. Gentleness, charity,
devotion and loyalty to the institution he so dearly loved-these
traits dwell in our memory as we affectionately join his name to
the animal of the year 1911-12.

To an Indian Arrow-Head
Thou rough-hewn, rude barbed missive erude
From unknown past,
Wliat Nature,s child in savage wild
Gave thee thy cast?
Who fondly finger'd, proudly linger'd
With loving eye
O,er edges ragged, o'er barb so jagged,
Ere cast thee by?
VVhose strong bow-string first gave thee wing
At heart of deerg
And pulled thee out with savage shout
And wildwood Cheer?
VVhen first was dank thy cruel shank
In crimson flood?
VVho death-song sang while war-whoop rang
As thou drankst blood?
On whose bare back in snake-skin black
lvast thou perchance
At midnight taken 'mong camp-fires shaken
In wild scalp-dance?
And hearest thou yet the Spirit fret
In mournful pine?
Does Manitou speak to thee through
The north wind's whine?
And doth this stream with echoes teem
Of once lov'd sound?
Dance now for thee his pools i11 glee
This sand-har lround?
Unletter'd, rude, thy message crude
Rings down the years
Of battles wild when man, though child,
Yet knew not tears.
And he who finv'er,d, fondlv lin0'er'd
ts N C3
And turn'd thee 'round
Is i11 us wrapped as thou art lapp'd
In this warm 0'1'0Ul1Cl.

The cares of the editor have been great and burdensome,
but we assure you that we shall be fully repaid for every trial
and every worry met with in the production of this book if,
occasionally in future years, amid the rush of actual life, some
member of the student body of the session of 1911-1912, as the
shades of evening draw nigh, will open a musty-and we hope,
treasured-volume and read to the family circle drawn around
the fireside the record of this year at the University of Missis-
sippig 01', if, perchance, some happy bachelor, wrapt in the
security of his lonely quarters, with the smoke from his trusty
pipe ascending in clouds above his head, will from these pages
refresh his memory of the college days to come no more. Then,
if we have performed our task well, the tear-stain upon these
pages will evidence the appreciation of our efforts and the love
for our Alma Mater.
Our function is ended and our course is run. Adieu, ,til
we meet again.

Miss Laurie was taught in her early youth that children should be seen

to keep quiet does not indicate an inability to carry on an interesting

close friends, and there are none of the girls who do not love her.

who makes our work more pleasant and our lives brighter with her eternal

Arthur is true to his convictions, and is a friend of the kind which are
much to be desired. He rooms with "Casey," and the heated arguments
they have, surely prove the truthfulness of this assertion. No one has
anything against "Old Bonus," and, although he is familiarly termed "Bone-

we predict that. ere long, he will be the leading attorney at the Ruleville

Miss Sallie started out with the Lits, but entered the Law Class in her
.lunior year and devoted herself ardently to the intricacies of Blackstone.
Remembering, however, that old friends are the best friends, she returned
to the Academics and is now numbered in the class of 1912. Sallie tried
I. I. tk C. before coming here, and can tell wonderful tales of how they
eat 'em alive over there. She possesses a strong personality, has a will of
her own and is not easily led.

"Coop" has left us very little space to say much about him. But we
will add that he has been popular choice in his many honors and has faith-
fully performed each trust. If his present loyalty continues, in the future
his Alma Mater will be benefitted by it. He expects-rather hopeswto

This lover came from somewhere down in the bottoms of the great Tom-

student had Dan Cupid not wounded him so severely in the beginning of
his College career-he may recover, but we have our doubts. His grades
are creditable, even though, to be truthful, we must admit that he does not
sit night after night and blear his eyes with books. Few know him, but

After learning all there was to be learned at Millsaps he came to the

the establishing of the Honor Council at Millsaps, which makes him a

"Black" was here as a Sophomore when we were collegiate babies, but
he played truant one year and had to fall back to the " 'lf' class. He is
quiet, unassuming, studies hard, and is unfailing as a friend. Harper will
secure his certificate in Medicine this term and hopes to become a full-

"Billy" is a jolly good fellow at all times, especially along about Com-
mencement, and his "tenor" has aroused many a midnight lark to jealous
competition. He expects to become a banker, provided the boll weevil
leaves any cash in or around the historic town of his choice, and it is said
that he shows great promise, for he is the bright and particular star in
Prof. Bell's Political Economy Class. M'e believe that "Billy Mc" will bank
the money all right, for his popularity will bring the business.

"A little body doth often harbor a great soul." This fits Mac exactly.
Big-hearted, reserved, but loyal to his friends, lazy, yet intelligent. Mac
carries the "coop" by storm when he tries, and, not being satisfied with
those triumphs, he jumped on Blackstone and learned it all. Next Hoy
intends to direct his energies against the legal lights of Memphis-that is,
after Uncle Tommy's Dip is snugly tucked under his arm.

John is a sober-minded, serious sort of a fellow, but he likes a joke. and.
although we believe that he will make a shining light in the legal world.
yet we feel that when he decided to take up the study of law the American
stage lost an excellent black-face comedian. Our only hopes is that he may
lie as successful in all his undertakings in the future as he has been in the
past in the playing of certain jokes, to which many a wayfarer may testify.

Captain Mitchell, aside from being an athlete of the first rank, is a stu-
dent, and is almost universally liked. He is kind-hearted, conscientious and
true, and it is with much regret on the part of the student body that Steve
graduates this y9Zll'. His mature judgment was shown in early youth, when
he refused to be sent to the Agricultural College with his brothers, but
came to us. Mitchell is studying law now, and says that he expects to
amount to much.

She is one of the most. conscientious girls that ever came to Ole Bliss,
sometimes even to a fault. There is nothing' that she will not do for her
friends. She is so olrliging that her friends work her hut if she suspects
it thu game is up. She has a quick temper, and sometimes pouts about

Miss Marguerite is certainly the most popular girl in school-with both
the hoys and the girls-for no one who knows her can help loving her, and
others admire her from the distance. Possessing sufficient propriety, charm-
ing manners and friendly smiles for everyone, she will easily become a leader
in the social world. She doesn't study hard, for she knows how to "Bug" the
Profs., and so gets through creditahly.

Miss Claudie is very pleasant. She has a well-balanced temper and a most
peculiar taste for Math., as the Engineering Quartette will testify. Surely
the Mathematics room will be lonesome for many years after her departure,
for seldom do our co-eds take more than the required five hours in this line.
Miss Sims is a good student, will graduate near the head of her class, and
she is one of the three girls who have won Taylor Medals.

Immediately upon his election as presiding officer of our class in its
Freshman year he was dubbed "President," and he has retained that proud
cognomen ever since-yea, from early youth. He hails from down where

years ago, and seeing nothing else to join, he joined our class and he
has been joining everything since. He is a Latin and Greek shark and once
upon a time he told a new joke and got up for breakfast on time. In
the "Ole Miss" contest for the best joke, "Duff" was very prominently
mentioned. Few in the "Dozen" class have a better chance for success
than "Duff," He expects to have a corner on cotton some day.

If "Pig" had the voice he would certainly lie a howling success as an orator

this lad possesses ahility as a writer and as a student. He doesn't study
so much as you might suspect, hut spends much of his time in company

from the pictures what others must dig from musty volumes. No doubt
he will grow rich writing plots for "Pathe Freres," "I.ubin" and "Kalem."

Dick entered the University in 1492 and got his lit dip four years after-
wards. That's why we rememher that date. Deciding that the youths of
the state needed some wisdom as it Howed from his hrain. he turned
some of it loose in that wilderness known as Brookhaven. The wisdom
hecoming exhausted. he returned to Ole Miss for a fresh supply, and now
that he is full of law and a Master's wisdom he again goes forth to turn
some of it loose. XVhat shall the result he?

Senior Class History
'H-Xt last!" The time has finally come and it was so short.
There were one lnmdred and eight of us in the beginning, but
now there are only forty-one to pass the final goal post. Some
say it is the survival ot' the fittest. VVe are too modest to say.
A history of our class! YVhat's the use to w1'ite it? Every-
body who has ever heard ot' Ole Miss knows our history from
Alpha to Izzard. To know the history of our class is to know a
great part ot' the history of the University for the past four
But anyhow, here she goes. Most of us come from Mis-
sissippi-in fact, all except three-all thanks to Tennessee and
Louisiana. VVhen we had had only about two months of experience
in this world-which ranges from nineteen to thirty-five years
ago, and approximately sixteen years ago for all the co-eds-we
did our share of the squalling and making mamma and papa walk
the floor. But we were growing all the time-and every member
ofthe class was the pride of his home village. ive grew and waxed
wise at home and finally learned all there was to be learned at
home. 'l'hen other fields--rich pastures of knowledge-at-
traeted oul' attention.
About this time we came to Ole Missysaid school is thank-
l'ul-- -and took these classic old shades by storm. And it might be
added that it was stormy days-and nights-when the K. K. K.
made us come down about three notches. Only one hundred and
eight pulled the three notches off' their conceited heads at this
time and the notehing process--or something--has been kept up
every year until now just forty-one answer to the roll call of'
These forty-one are divided into twenty-one lits--including
ten co-eds, thirteen judges, one pill-roller, five medicos and one
surveyor. Our class has one fatal defect-not enough co-eds-
only enough to control the destinies of ten of the boys. But this
is leap year!
Honors have been heaped upon the heads of this "Dozen"
class-literary, oratorieal, athletic, Y. BI. C. A. and social.
Nearly all the Scribs and Sigma Kaps are in the Senior class.
ive are represented in full force on the forum and athletic field.
Our mothers look forward to the day when we shall be Pres-
ident, our papas say we will be judge if we study hard, the Profs.
predict a failure and the other students don't give a dimple. So
there we are! 1
Honestly we believe that the class of ftDozen" is the best
in the history of the school-because it leaves the leap year. But
be that as it may, there never were forty-one boys and girls who
have developed more in four short years, and now that we are
shortly to leave these sacred walks and buildings-some of us for
the last time-there is a feeling of sadness in the coldest of hearts.
Many of' us will never meet again. The actual fight of life has
begun and this will lead us away from these classic shades and
from each other.
Each of us have learned to love this dear old school and
most of us leave with a tender feeling for the place of our mak-
ing. VVe have watched with no little interest the material and
literary progress of the past four years. VVhen the memories of
the happy days spent here will be recalled in the future, a re-
sponsive chord will be touched. Long live Ole Miss, and may her
days of' prosperity be numberless as the sands of the seashore.
The class of '12 will ever be loyal to her. F. G. C., '12

RAVVN together in search of self-betterment, from
every nook and corner of Rlississippi-thrown at once
into the weltering mass of college possibilities which
is called a Freshman Class, we Juniors have experienced first-year
greenness and second-year self-importance, and we are ready now
to enter with firm and sober step on the path which our Nineteen-
twelve Seniors have so gallantly trod.
For better or for worse,-spite of cliques and sets and disa-
greements, we are a class, fellow-graduates-to-be, and though
now the division lines lO0l1l large in our vision, and the tie that
binds us together seems weak and impotent, yet Time will level
the harsh divisions and make stronger and dearer the golden
thread of union. And in that mysterious Hereaftcr Life which
we college boys at once reach out for and shiver at,-in that un-
trod fallow ground of Opportunity which we shall enter upon
when for the last time we have descended Depot Hill, each turn
in the hard, bleak furrow will be made more cheery for us by the
face of one who was a Mississippi boy of Nineteen-thirteen.
Miss RHODES-My! VVhat a reckless spendthrift with her tongue.
Iis you, sweet niaid
VVith eyes of blue
And head arrayed
In gold: And you,
0 dark-eyed Queen
lVhose Dark hair's sheen
Yes, you with eyes
Of' azure sought
In morning skies,
By angels brought:
You too, I say,
Yvith eyes of lbrown
Ur soher gray
Cast up or down:
Aye, all of you
Sweet maidens who
Make moments run
And long months dance
In crowded file:
In Youth's sweet while.
Ah, yes, you wrap
Our hearts in threads
Ut' gold, and cap
Our enipty heads
IVith rank eoneeit
By studied smiles
Ut' sweet deeeit,
And cunning wiles.
Yes, you are wise
And will not drink
Our honied lies
As oft we think.
But though you will
Not often let
Us love, you still
Blake us forget
Our heavy cares,
The weary stress,
The strains and wears
That hard oppress.
And when your eyes
Grow hard and cold
Then n1e1n'1'y flies
To sweethearts oldg
To other days
Fleet fancies flow
To winding ways
Of lonn' afro.

Freshman Class History
HHN this brief history of the Freshman Class shall
be exposed to the world, we, as members of that class,
shall have passed from that lowly estate into the 'Smar-
velous light and liberty of Sophomoredom." VVQ shall have
passed the first milestone that marks the rough and thorny path
of higher eduaction.
Only nine short months have passed since we first left our
homes to make presidents or senators of ourselves: only nine short
months since we boarded the train with farewells of our friends
still ringing in our ears, with our hearts filled with great ambi-
tions and our heads swelled with pride at our own importance.
VVe never suspected, we never in our wildest dreams imagined,
what awaited us, what terro1's and woes lay in ambush just
On our arrival we were met by a great herd of our former
schoolmates who had gone on a year before us. VVith joy we
ran to meet them only to be met, with looks of contempt or a
sneering tthello, Freshief, Night came on and amid hoarse and
haunting cries which filled our hearts with terror, we were given
our welcome, were made to feel at home, which we did not.
The next day we were taken to the office, and with shaking
knees and quaking hearts went through a process called Hmatricu-
lationf, Here some of the weaker ones dropped out, unable to
stand the strain. The rest were carried before 'tProfs" who com-
pleted the process of extracting our ambition by making us tell
them how little we knew.
For the sake of the more humane I draw a curtain over the
next few months. Suffice it to say we came out meeker and wiser
meng that we developed from the green striplings that we were
on arrivingg that we wore our trousers rolled as high as any,
could smoke as many cigarettes, and "Ich liebe lIiL',l,N "Ego 1111111
1'1',', "yo 11111111111 11st01I,,' and "Je 1"11i1111"' fell as glibly from our
lips as though we had been speaking them from early infancy.
The rest of the year was spent in the pursuit of our va-
rious duties. lVe have had our joys and our happy days, our
trials and our sad days. Some have fallen by the wayside,
others have joined us at diffe1'ent points of our journey. And
now the year is gone, and as was said in the beginning we shall
soon have passed into the land of 6tThe Sophomore," where we
shall look on the Freshman to-be with the same scorn, the same
contempt as we were looked upon by our predecessors.
So here's a toast to Freshman Class,
Let's raise our glass on highg
llay we grow in wisdom and in strength,
As the golden years roll by.

An epic eelipsing the classics of old,

As never yet brightened the annals of arms,
Although my achievements might challenge the fame
Of infinite ages, enshrining my name
Ivith garlancls of glory eternal as truth,
And fraught with a fragrance more subtle than youth
And though I might gladclen all hearts with my song
Till the nations assembled in one mighty throng
To listen in rapture, and crown me as king
Ut' even the ehief of the angels that sing-
With the wave of my hand, I should thrust it aside-

To the shyest of Muses to frame what I feel,
In simplest of' measures and purest of' pleas:

"The Closing Game of lfie Seasonv
ITHIN the halls of Fairfax College rhere was much
excitement, books were forgotten, students went hither
and thither to seek opinions more mature: all were dis-
cussing the one subject-the outcome of the baseball game with
their old rival, Martin College, which was to be played on the
morrow. lvithout, nature seemed to lend her sympathy to the
occasion, her thousand little beings were thoroughly aroused.
The moon was nearing its full and the shadows of the thick
foliage of the trees created many shady nooks and corners in con-
venient places on the campus.
Seemingly unmindful of the stir abroad, two figures
strolled slowly along the winding lane leading to the section of
the campus where the homes of the faculty stood. For one well
acquainted with him, it would not have been difficult to recog-
nize in the outline of one of the figures the person of Ralph
Raymond, for he was the best athlete in school-being a broad-
shouldered, well-developed fellow, whose figure was not easily
mistaken. As for the identity of the lady, there could be no
doubt, for during the whole of his career in college no other
girl had held any charms for young Raymond except Ena
Rutherford, the pretty daughter of stern old Dr. Rutherford,
the professor of Mathematics.
Nor could Ralph be blamed for falling in love: everybody
on the campus loved Ena. Her sympathetic kindness, her
pleasant smile, her bewitching Congeniality, and her interest in
athletics made her a great favorite with the boys at Fairfax.
From the time that Ralph had entered school as a Freshman,
five years ago, she seems to have wielded a wonderful power over
him. In fact. some of the wiser ones had it, that his rapid de-
velopment was due largely to her influence.
However this may be, it is a noticeable fact that the boy
had somehow managed to take his degree of B.A. with distinc-
tion, and at the same time engage actively in all phases of
athletics that the College afforded. At this particular season
of the year he was enjoying an especial amount of hero worship,
as it was in his skill as a pitcher that the hope lay of defeating
llartin in the championship game. The rumor had gone out
that there would be a wedding at Fairfax during the last com-
mencement. but no such event had happened, and, to the great
pleasure of the boys, Ralph had returned in the fall to apply
for his Masteris Degree.
But going back to the campus. The two have reached the
little iron gate in front of the home of Dr. Rutherford. There
they hesitate for a moment in earnest conversation, the girl ex-
tends her hand to say good-night, Ralph grasps it eagerly and
attempts to draw he1' to him. "lVon't you make it tonight," he
was saying, but she withdrew her hand immediately, turned, and
ran lightly up the gravel walk to the front of the house. Pausing
here and looking over her shoulder she saw the tall, manly
figure with bowed head still standing at the gate. 4'Tomorrow
night, if you win," she said with a little laugh, and entering the
front door she disappeared from sight.
The following day dawned bright and clear. Excitement ran
high on the campus. The special train bearing the enthusiastic
Dlx. I41AllLEYiuA! r. Oates." Oivriss-"Doctor, did you say me."
supporters of the Martin team arrived at one oiclock, according
to schedule. Two hours later everything was in readiness for
the game, each Vollege had its band of "Rooters" on the side-
lines. The Fairfax boys were full of hope and confidence.
Never before had their pitcher shown such skill in the control
of the ball.
The first three innings of the game ended with no seo1'e for
either team, although Raymond's hit to left field in the second
was a promising opportunity for Fairfax. In the early part of
the fourth, Deerbrook, shortstop for Martin, sent a ball crash-
ing into right fieldg the player there failed to recover it until
the runner had passed second base, then, in his confusion, he
threw high over the third baseman, thereby allowing Deerbrook
to reach the plate safely. Yell after yell arose from the itlartin
supporters. Disappointment was written on the face of Ralph
Raymond, but, after a glance at the grandstand, this was turned
into grim determination. This was the only time that a member
of the team lost his judgment, they were playing a faultless
game. But try as they would, a Fairfax runner could not score.
Luck had clearly broken against them. The last. of the ninth
inning had come without :1 change. The Martin team was sure
of success. Two men had come to the bat and both had retired
without hitting. There was a general revival of enthusiasm,
however, when the third batter sent a ball into center field for
two bases. The spirit was still more evident when this was fol-
lowed by a single to left, which gave the first runner third base.
For a time nothing could be heard but the wild cheers that went
up from the Fairfax boys. There was a fighting Cll3.l1CC to win!
The next batter was called, and Ralph Raymond stepped to the
plate. The first ball came directly over, the batter stood motion-
less, allowing the runner on first base to advance. Now was the
critical moment, a safe hit meant victory-both runners could
score! The pitcher sent the second ball to the plate with mar-
velous speed, tl1e bat swings forward, but fails to strike it.
"Strike two,', calls the umpire. As the third ball leaves the
hand of the pitcher every eye on Fairfax field is turned upon
the movements of the batter, as quick as thought he takes one
step forward and strikes with tremendous force-"Strike three,"
calls the umpire, and the hopes of victory were lost.
The termination of that game today seems like a dream to
Ralph Raymond. The only thing that he remembers distinctly
is that he passed out by the grandstand and heard a familiar
female voice say, t'Neve1' mind, Ralph, I shall make the candy
"Moxie" HI-:m.i:s1'ox-"Hurray for George Washington."

A man well read and well versed in the affairs of this world is our

Boggan taught school at Collins and Biloxi. He is one of the "happy

This "Enterprising" young fellow had an idea that he was fond of the
study of law until Equity Jurisprudence came into his course, then all
earlier ambitions vanished and he no longer aspires to be a lawyer. but a
barrister. Buck is a good student, and this, with his practical ideas,
speaks well for his future. An intimate assoriation is necessary for a
full appreciation of his jovial disposition.

He was known as "Prep" in the days gone by, but when he returned
with his "family" we found him extremely dignified. His success this
year has been marvelous, and he will finish first or second in his class,
which is an indication as to what a good lawyer he will make. No doubt
ere long he will represent Pontotoc in the Legislature, and the halls of
fame will resound with his logic and humor.

YVe, as the Class of 1912, sincerely mourn, both from a
recognition of flu- fact that they, in future years, will bring
fresh laurel wreaths of fanu- to lay at the feet of their Alma
Mater and for their own intrinsic worth as scholars and as
gentlemen. Though we have lost you, we yet regard you as our
own, and when the swaddling clothes are unwrapped from the
baby destiny, now dandled onthe knees of the gods perhaps our
lives again will touch, and we assure you that your memory and
your identity as one of us will be green in the hearts of each
of the members of vour class and our friendship and champion-
ship as if we had never been parted.
Today we stand on the historic rostrum, eaglets about to
lu- pushed from the security of the nest by the wise old mother,
awkward, ugly, scarcely having molted our pin-feathers, to try
the strength of the wings which she has carefully, theoretically
trailu-d to fly. lVifh feathers ruffled and glaring eyes we at-
tempt to cling to the rock which has been our refuge, but its
smooth surface affords us no foothold. She who has been our
teacher, and afforded us protection from all of the world, and
whose lu-art is filled with love for her awkward children, knows
no pity and our strength is not sufficient to allow us to remain
in the security of the nest in which we have been reared. All
things must end and today, knowing not the strength of our un-
tried wings, and with but a theoretical knowledge of their proper
use, we are fo fly for the first time from our eyrie.
In each and every heart there is a feeling of pride in our
ac-hievenu-nf and our profession, a feeling of desire to essay the
perilous flight and a deep, sincere feeling of sorrow that after
today the companionship, which has made us more secure, which
"l'.xsi:Y" llnowx- "XVhy. gosh dog!
Slu-'s pretty as liftlc red shoes."
has been so warm and comforting through the lonely hours of
the night, is to cease. Together we have watched the "Dull Clod"
give way to the 'flnstinct of Might" within it, the birth of the
new life of spring through the travail of earth, the mother, laying
aside for the nonce the dusty tomes and cold reasoning of the
distinguished jurists to don our flannels, vivid socks, loud ties
and a-courting go, harking with willing ears to the soft calls
of Pysche and feeling with keen joy the pangs of the shafts of
We are but mortal, and being so have had our petty quar-
rels and feelings of enmity. In the heat of argument about the
construction of some statute: in the moot court on the trial of a
case, the strained nerves of the fledging lawyer have given away
to the stress of the conflict, but on this day of parting, the book
of our unity and good will is open to all who care to read.
Some of our members perhaps have been opposed in the school
of politics, some on questions which, to them, are vital: but today,
standing on the rostrum on which the great men of Mississippi
have stood, in the chapel in which today the spirits of the Alumni
who have gone before and the hearts of those who are in the
hurly-burly stampede of life are hovering eager to welcome to
their distinguished ranks the callow eaglet striving to cling to
the wings of its Alma Hlater, there is no feeling of emnity, no
feeling of strife. Gone are the unpleasant things of the past.
Before the final parting, the breaking up of our perfect unity,
all the small, petty trifles are forgotten, nothing remains but
regret that our lives are no longer to continue side by side, each
deriving strength from the other: and an overwhelming desire
that each and every one will prove worthy of the earnest and
conscientious efforts of our beloved instructors, Blessrs. Somer-
ville and Farley. Today the swaddling clothes a1'e unpinned
from the baby destiny by the dumb God of the Future and the
first fold is beginning to unwrap-if all of the folds could be
unwrapped today, each of us would be saved many a heartache
to come in the future-but the cloth is only unpinned and year
by year the faces will gradually fall until the future is but the
past, and we have succeeded: or failed and, bruised and broken.

TH li FUTU R li.
Tomorrow, we boys, unacquainted with aught but the tilting
yard, with weapons with which we are but theoretically ac-
quainted, ride into the midst of the hitter melee of the tourna-
ment of life in a body. Some of us will fall, some will stand and
in time become the grim and battle-scarred veterans of the Battle
of Life, to which the noise of the conflict is the harmony of the
universe, to whom the smoke of the battle is the very breath of
life, the class of men with which we on the morrow, inexpe-
rienced, untried, tilt. Though we be conquered in our first and
our second, third, fourth and fifth struggle, yet the teaching
that we have received, and the hard study that we have done will
yet show its temper, and from each such conflict we will emerge
but unconquered, knowing more of the use of our weapons, until,
in the end, we will rest in our tents, our shields bearing our
resplendent arms, the pennons of success waving in the wind for
the world to read, reflecting honor upon the mother and upon
our class. e
Armed for the battle, prepared, courageous, in the armor
so carefully made by the master armorers, with the razor-sharp,
two-edged sword which they too have welded and tempered, men,
we face the grueling battle that may last half a century, and
though it may he slow in coming, yet will the god of battle
finally award to us the victory: or on the field of valor, facing
the heat of the conflict, our path marked by the fallen, our
standard guarded by the still bodies which once composed the
Class of 1912, the class will bury its shame that it has not suc-
ceeded by the manner of its battle, and the unconquerable valor
of its members still the tongue of the maligner.

EXCICRPTS FROM HISTORICAL CONTRIBUTION
OF 3912, A. D.
N a paper to be read before the Universal Historical
Society in 3912, the historian will probably incorpo-
rate, in substance, the following:
"During the first century of a f1'ee and democratic gov-
ernment, the American people made wonderful prog1'ess in science,
invention and the fine arts. Commerce became highly developed,
and vast corporations sprang up and acquired a power never
before dreamed of. Enormous fortunes were amassed by a few
individuals, and lesser fortunes by many more.
6'But the very industrial and commercial conditions of the
times made possible the development of a class, denominated by
their less fortunate and hard-working contemporaries, the Idle
Rich. These, in their efforts to excel each other in the lavish-
ness of their entertainments, dress, and buildings, introduced an
era of splendid extravagance hitherto unattained by any peo-
ple. The desire on the part of the moderately well-to-do to imi-
tate the immensely rich brought about a reign of high prices
that so increased the cost of living as to reduce the condition of
the poorer classes well nigh to intolerable destitution. In order
to build up still greater fortunes, the unconscious captains of
high finance with their ill-gotten gold corrupted the legislative
assemblies of the country and tainted the fountains of justice.
The free institutions of the early patriots were th1'ottled by the
Dragon of Greed. Naturally, a conflict ensued between the
oppressed laboring classes and the rich. The only weapon with
which the laboring classes had to fight was personal force and
violence. Since the latter were vastly in the majority, it is
easily seen that such a struggle must finally have resulted in a
period of bloody ana1'chy and revolution, had not some great
and potent influence intervened.
'6That such a calamity was averted was due in no small
degree to a group of young men who entered the University of
Mississippi during the session of nineteen lmndred and twelve
to engage in the study of the law. The service which they ren-
de1'ed succeeding generations was incalculahle. By virtue of a
divine zeal, undaunted integrity, and signal ability, they drove
from the legislative halls the representatives of predatory wealth,
purified the fountains of justice, curbed the rapacious appe-
tites of the moneyed aristocracy, and, by wise legislation, made
the enjoyment of the luxuries of life dependent directly upon
the equitable basis of services rendered.
uIt is well to notice just here the training and influences
that were brought to bear upon the members of this group of
remarkable men, and which so admirably fitted them for the
rendering of so great a service to lnnnanity.
6'In the first place they came from the masses of the people,
though it is indeed fortunate for the world that they were
reared in homes where the ideals of the early fathers of the
KEI.I.IS-ii,cxW', fellow, I wish you wouldn't fret me."
Republic were cherished and preserved: where the principles of
freedom, of equal rights, of truth, and of justice were instilled
into them from earliest childhood. They were taught the songs
and traditions of a patriotic people, and their young imagina-
tions were kindled by the recital of the noble deeds of the heroes
of the American Revolution. Their fathers and grandfathers
had fought and bled on the battlefield in a disastrous Civil Vvar
for what they thought to be right, and these sons of theirs were
enjoined to sacrifice, if need be, their young lives upon their
country's altar for the sake of her honor and the preservation
of the principles embodied in her Constitution. '
"Imbued then, as they were, with the highest ideals of the
purposes of government, they entered upon the study of law
that they might the better equip themselves for the great' work
that lay before them. They lent themselves diligently to the
study of the ethical principles expounded by Blackstone, an
eminent legal scholar that lived some two centuries earlier. They
searched with avidity the law reports of the times, and ac-
quainted tliemselves with thc judicial decisions of the most ree
nowned judges. They regularly attended the sessions of lloot
Court, an institution that existed at the University for the nur-
ture and cultivation of embryonic legal luminaries. There they
served as jurors that the Senior law students might practice
their voeiferous but empty arguments upon them. Thus they
obtained a practical working knowledge of the intricate ma-
chinery of the law courts, its perfeetions and its imperfections.
In the literary societies and the Blackstone Club, their phe-
nomenal powers of eloquence and oratory excited the awe and
admiration of their fellow students. No opportunity, the im-
proving of which would prepare them for their high and holy
calling, was neglected."

History of the Class of 1912
VAST deposition of Time's fabled obscurity assails
the eye with visions of an embryonic herd of the human
species freshly emerged from a state of high-school
dormancy. Loosed thus prematurely, it luckily transpires that
2l.l11blt10l1,S eruptious rankling soon seeks scholastic imposition
with cool disregard of consequent degrees of toil. The tactful
elemtnt assume the t1'ials of "Lite, as their insignia of devotion,
those less resourceful perforate the realms of Aledicine and Phar-
macy, Law claims her share of the truly aspiring while Engi-
neering ruthlessly entraps the guileless remainder.
Girded about with a raiment of soothing unconcern, the
latter component c1'aftily conceals numberless pitfalls, relentless
activity and insufferable technic. Preliminary disclosures has-
tily dispel the proverbial illusion of laymen as regards the pro-
fession. The Engineer is painted not as a mere Surveyor the
chief end of whom is to appear important, to squint through his
three-legged badge and to record the objects of his distorted
vision, but as a man of inexhaustible resources. He is a profes-
sional unit of originality providing unceasingly for the comfort,
safety and protection of mankind. He is not a builder, but a
designer, not a musician, but a composer. He harnesses, trans-
forms and eeonomizes the forces of Nature's provision to the
greatest advantage of the public weal. Unlauded, unglorified
and unknown he is content to labor in seclusion that the fruits
thereof may compose the foremost ranks of advancing civiliza-
It is with due impression and adjusted perspective, there-
fore, that the apprentice is led to the oracle of rudimentary de-
tail. 1t is then that the trials, ditlieulties and dangers of his
task assert themselves with alarming rapidity. Unwavering ap-
plication coupled with some small degree of elementary talent is
productive of either abject discouragement or of stubborn de-
termination in the heart of the aspirant. Each year claims its
toll, of unfortunates who fall by the wayside in the supreme
struggle for the coveted but elusive "sheep-skin." It is inevitable
that the annals of University records reveal a diminutive nucleus
and progressive decrease of engineering students as contrasted
with those of other and more inviting departments. Consistent
effort necessarily attends the achievement of goals worth while.
Ample corroboration of the foregoing is attested in a dis-
section of the class of 1912. of its four constituent parts but
one can justly lay claim to four years of continuous progression.
A freshman of 1908, he alone has mounted all obstacles and
emerged triumphant. Another of our seniors recruited in his
sophomore year, still another swelled the junior brigade while
the last, a junior of eight years standing, returned to renew
afresh 'his tribulations as a 1912 senior. It is thus evidenced
that historical divergence in no way handicaps the oneness of
effort toward the accomplishment of a connnon purpose. llay a
kind Fate ever direct the endeavors of this unique quartette in
their cultivation of subsequent fruitage. C. A., '12.

A man of grace, unknown, to some extent, The pierced mountain,-chasm overspanned,-
In worldly fame: a life of noble toil The lofty peak of builder,s stone,-the scar
Bequeaths to him the joy of soul content. Upon the face of Mother Earth,-the plan
Each day his thoughts to higher planes arise, Of rapid flight on land, on sea, in air,-
Each hour his hand subtends a wider sphere. Reveal to us, in vivid tone, the work,
At night he dreams-on him the world relies. As planned, by the mighty Engineer.
No mind can know how far his work may go:
No man can say how soon the end may come:
The force of nature may become a foe
So strong that man no longer may exist-
But be it as it may, the more t.he risk,
The more the Engineer will stubbornly resist.

A Romantic Literary Romance
HHN Knighthood Yvas in Flowerf' "Miss Selina Louf'
accompaniul by "The I'haperon,,' visited "Rosalind of
the Red Gate," where she met "Colonel Carter of Car-
tersville." It was a case ot' love at first sight, and when he asked
for "The Right of XVay" to her heart, her face was suffused
with blushes, no 'tl"reckles" showed: she believed he spoke the
"Truth," and as she saw no "Sign of the Crossw disposition that
some men have, she gave him her t'Hungry Heart" BTO Have
and to Hold."
There was a grand wedding, "The Little Minister" read the
service in an impressive way. 'tRebecca ot' Sunny Brook Farina,
was ring-bearer, "Int-zf' "Marcia," Beulah" and 'tVashti,, were
flower girls. "Hulda,', "Barbara YVorth,', 'tLovie Mary" and
"Annie of Green Gables" were bridesmaids. "Eben Holden,"
'tGordon Kc-ith,', "David Harman" and "Abner Daniel" were
groomsmen. The bride was clad in t'Lavender and Old Lace"
and was given away by "The Gentleman from Indiana." Upon
reaching the church door they were met and congratulated by
their old friends, t"I'he Iloosier Sc-hoolmaster" and "The Circuit
Iiider's VVit'e." After a slight delay "The Man on the Box" was
told to drive by the way ot' "The Lonesome Pine" to the "House
of' a Thousand C'andles," where a feast had been prepared by
"The Daughters of' Babylon."
"Lim Jucklin" had sent chickens for the meats, "Mrs.
Vviggs of the Vabbage Patch" donated pickle and salads, "The
Master of the Vineyard" sent wine and grapes, and there were
'tVVild Olivesv in abundance.
They were received by 'tMiss Minerva and William Green
Hill,', "Tom Grogans' and "The Shepherd of the Hills." "Pe-
terw was told to take care of the horses.
The address of welcome was made by 6'The Gentleman from
Mississippi? Then the house became "A House of Mirthf'
Now, in her youth t'Miss Selina Lou" loved the 6'Princess
Virginia,', who, when she grew up, married "Vergillius', and for
a time was happy, but '6Satan Sandersonv put "The Gambler"
up to telling 6'Yergillius" they thought his wife was spending
too much money. Then 'tThe Angel of Pain" took up her abode
in "Castle Craneycrow,', for the "Princess,' wrote, 6'Come to me,

So with 'tHearts Courageous" they started out to rescue
their friend. 'tMiss Selinan pleaded thus with "Vergillius,,'
'tllelease this poor wife of yours, who is indeed 'A Prisoner of

The night outside was cold and dark,
The "stitt's', inside lay staring stark,
lflickering never an eyelifl's breadth,
'l'hinking the solemn thoughts of death
A timber cracked and moved a bit
To ease itself' in its :uvkward tit,
An uneasy door half' open cried
.Xml friglitened a nihhling rat inside.

The clock struck one, that awful hour

And horrors unspeakable peramhulate
And dank clark graves regnrgitate!
The burly negro without a head,
Gurgled impatiently on his hecl:-
Ilis breath made soft melodious sound
As it whistled through his thorax down.
Ohm-client to his gurgling call
A head rose up in alcohol
Yvith drunken murmur of iiCllClHOt2lXlS,,
Reeled satisfied to his bloody axis.
He grinned a grin, unstretehed his knee
And fixed his head more co1nf'tably,
And in good English,-Let me say

Thus addressed this audience grim,
VVaving aloft a bony limb,--

BEN BELL-"Say, now, honor bright, don't you think I've got more show than 'Red?"'
You stabbed my soul with the words you said,
Though you meant most kind, I know.
The sunlight out of my soul-life fled,
And my dreams were dust, and my hopes were dead,
And the world was a world of woe.
I had built up a castle with golden spires,
In the land where the sirens sing,
YVith high halls -jewelled with dream desires,
And rift with the music of rythmie lyres,
Like the waft of' an angel's wing.
I had delved us fountains with dimpling sprays,
In a girdle ot' gardens and lawns,
The gladsome haunts of the t'air-haired fays,
And the sprites that sport in the woodland ways,
And the blythe-souled satyrs and fauns.
I had fashioned a bowel' ot' roses red.
Still bright with the shimmer of dew:
With snow-white blossoms, I had softly spread
A fragrant eoueh for the eurl-crowned head
And the lily-white heart of you.
With the gift of a Midas, I had touched with gold
Every traee of the base in your fate,
I had framed you a future with triumphs untold,
And every delight of the blythe and the bold,
Uumixed with the griefs of the great.
I had found you, a child, in the valley at play
Content with the charms of the plaing
I had plead with your spirit to Wander away
To the shimmering heights where the stout-hearted stay--
Were my words of entreaty in vain?
I had d1'eamed of a time, when your heart, dear, and mine
Together might strive to attain:
But with blooms of' the valley, your brows you entwine
From the cup of the present you quaft' witehing wine--
Alone, I must lose or must gaing
For you stabbed my soul with the words you said,
Though you meant most kind, I know.
The sunlight out of my soul-life Hed,
And my dreams are dust, and my hopes are dead,
And the world is a world of woe. D. E. G.
SAM Coox--"Say, fellows, it's blue as h-, ain't it?"
The Greater Love
"Greater lore hath no man than this. that he lay dozen his life for his friend."-New Testament.
HE VAST dungeon of the Serapeum was hideously alive
with the sights and sounds of the pit. Snaky convo-
lutions of flame lit up with a horrid brightness the
little knot of Roman legiona1'ies and temple attendants clustered
about the white-robed High Priest of Serapis, and the shudder-
ing flames and shadows threw into ghastly relief the figures of
the executioner, the rock and its moaning victim.
Very rarely was the High Priest himself seen in this awful
place. This departure from his prescribed region above would
probably entail weeks of ceremonial cleansing. But in a tremen-
dous work of persecution which had set every furnace-fire aglow,
and filled long-rustcd racks with obdnrate Christians,-in this
most desperate effort of Paganism to stamp out the young en-
emy which it felt must finally overthrow its altars, the girl whose
heavy black hair flowed from the rack before the High Priest
held the key to the situation. Small wonder that the Priest Psam-
tik himself must be p1'esent when the apostasy of the daughter of
the richest Egyptian in Alexandria was being put to the test. If
she stood firm, the whole Egyptian quarter was lost to Serapis.
If she recanted, a thousand Christians who adored the beautiful
girl would recant also.
And the p1'iest was perplexed, for there seemed very little
prospect of forcing the frail girl to bend to his threats. Four
times today she had been carried, terribly scorched and almost
unconscious, to the great altar above, about which the frantic
mob howled incessantly for Christian blood. And each time, the
delicate head was raised just long enough to nod a determined
negative when the priest demanded of her whether she was ready
to return to her ancestral faith. And now the rack was to be called
in,-most ingenious torture of all. For the fire cannot be per-
fectly controlled. In its ungovernable fury it sometimes gives
the relief of unconsciousness and may kill before the extremity
of pain has been reached. But the rack is the docile servant of
the cold cruelty that stands behind it, and the precise degree of
bearablc agony is readily gauged.
The girl moaned unceasingly, and turned her white face
from side to side, but made no sign of submission. Suddenly the
executioner, a gnoine-like being shining with sweat, left his rack,
strode through the crowd of attendants, and stood before
"My Lord Priest," he said sullenly, 'SI am not one to be
squeamish, but 1no1'e of this I cannot stand. The woman yonder
is possessed,-whether it be of devils or of a god, I know not. I
do know, my lord, that the wrath of heaven is upon him who
molests an inspired one."
He threw down his iron pincers and walked off, and the
priest, though his eyes blazed for an instant, made no effort to
stop him, for, looking into the faces of his men, he feared fur-
ther insubordination. He was deeply troubled. The extremity
of physical torture was quite futile, and he would defeat his own
purpose by making a martyr of the girl. He must have time
to weigh so perplexing a question, so he ordered the soldiers to
release the victim and bear her up to the women's quarters where
she could be kept alive till further developments.
STANLEY BIAGEE-SSGOIIC up four-bits."
The procession wound slowly tln'ough the hellish 1'oom, two
mail-clad legionaries supporting the fainting girl. Her eyes,
fevered with suffering, roved restlessly over the horrid groups
they passed,-every group busy with its fiendish task. On the
last rack lay a young man, and, as his face, twisting with pain,
turned toward the girl, into her eyes came a look that the rack
had worked in vain to put there. She cried out and fainted dead
away. And a light of understanding flashed into the High
l'riest's hard, cold eye. And the man on the rack began to
struggle impotently and to rave of ttlrasl Iras P'
Iras, the beautiful f'hristian, lay, white and groaning with
the pain of her wrenched limbs, on a couch in the apartment of
the Sub-Priestess. From time to time, the remembrance of the
face on that last rack returned to her, and she covered her face
and groaned. The heavy hangings rustled, and Psamtik stood
over her and spoke in a voice of silk.

who seems strangely forgetful of his devotees, consign yourself
and your lover-" the girl started violently at the discovery that
he knew her secret. The man went on gloatingly. ttWill you
consign your lover to the tortures whose awfulness you have
tasted? The man is as obdurate as the rest of your kind. He
will suffer to the end. Only recant, and give your example to the
thousands of f'hristians who hang on every word and deed of
Iras, and you will be restored to the arms of your libe1'ated
He paused dramatically, to give his words effect. The girl,
who had lain with her hand over her face, roused quickly and sat
upright before him.
"No, priest," she said quietly. "My love is a man and a
C'hristian. If ln must suffer for the glory of Christ, so be it.
VVe shall be joined where your arm cannot reach. And now,
tear me limb from limb, but seek no more to tempt me. My
heart is set." And she fell back groaning.
A white-clad servitor stood in the doorway. Psamtik took
a letter from his hands and he retired. The priest read the note
and, without a word, handed it to the girl. She read it slowly,
hardly comprehending, for the fierce physical agony that racked
her. Then she did comprehend, and in spite of her weakness,
struggled to her feet and began to pace the little apartment,
sobbing as if her heart would break. The note fluttered to the
floor, and the priest picked it up and read it aloud-
"To His Supreme Holiness, greetings-
"The Christian, Amru, on the rack for his obstinacy, is
weakening. A little more torture and he recantsf' HA man and

The gi1'l paused before him, wringing her hands.
"If I give in at once, will you release him before he is forced
to yield?" she demanded. The priest considered a moment, a
crafty look on his face. Then he nodded.
"Go with me now to the altar and bow before the god, and
he shall have no more torturef, "Then I will go," she mur-
mured. "I will go, even though it means to go down to the
death of my soul. I am the stronger, and I must protect his
faith. Hurry, hurry l" she cried, pushing him to the door with
her poor, b1'oken hands.
He touched a bell, and dispatched with a message the ser-
vant who entered.

Suddenly a glare at the great door lit up the late afternoon
dimness, and the crowd hushed its clamor and drew back in ex-
pectancy as a procession, headed by torch bearers, moved across
the mighty chalnber. Then, when the party came in full view, a
murmur of satisfaction arose and swelled to a howl of triumph
as Iras appeared, leaning heavily on the arm of the High

And Iras, hearing, turned even paler, and her step lagged
as she neared the great image of Serapis. But her decision,
reached so quickly, held, and she thought of the danger to her
lover's soul and went on.
The populace was completely hushed as the High Priest,
rustling in beautiful linen and resplendent, jewelled trappings,
demanded of the pale creature before him if she would solemnly
renounce her strange god and return to the faith of her fathers.
The girl raised her head and gazed about her,-looked toward the
heaven she knew she was renouncing,-murmured a prayer to the
Christ she was deserting. Ihen she looked full at the priest and
opened her pallid lips to speak.
But the priest was not looking at her. A murmur of won-
der ran through the crowd, and Iras followed the gaze of a hun-
dred eyes to the trap door that led from a niche behind the
Serapis down to the dungeon beneath. It was open, and a man
had crawled out of it towards the group before the image. The
mob was paralyzed with astonishment. Only a few knew of the
existence of the door, and to those few, including the priests, the
figure crawling up from the hell beneath seemed an apparition of
their victims come to haunt them.
The 1na11, mangled, scorched and broken, crept feebly fo1'-
ward. Iras, seeing his face, started violently, cried out and
staggered to him, raising his 'fottering form in her arms.
Those nearest heard his hoarse whisper, HIras, they are de-
ceiving you. I never intended to recant. Do not throw your
soul away, and destroy the faith of the brethren. A jailer told
me of the plan, and I bribed him to help me to you.',
His voice grew fainter and they swayed in one another's
arms. He went on painfully, and there was no one in that crowd
of brutal fanatics who had the heart to interrupt him.

body, her head striking the marble pavement with cruel force.
And when the mob, strangely hushed, raised the pale faces,
the smile on the poor white lips told of things far beyond the
reach of the great, grim Serapis, with his unconquered victims
writhing beneath him, and his slaves subdued at his feet by over-
whelming awe of a purer and greater God.

The Greek Lcffcr Fraternity System
ENV people, other than the student who has attended
college where the Greek Letter Fraternity System is
recognized, have any definite conception of these so-
called college secret societies. In fact, since their membership is
limited to about thirty-five or forty per cent of the student body
and since one of their distinctive features is secrecy, a surpris-
ingly small proportion of college men have really comprehended
the true significance of the fraternity system. VVithout entering
into any argumentative discussion of the relative merits or de-
merits of these organizations, we will attempt in this article to
give a brief sketch of the system.
Yvith the development of civilization and the growth of our
higher educational system, the Greek letter fraternities have be-
come important factors in our national progress. The first so-
ciety in America bearing a Greek letter name was the Phi Beta
Kappa, which was founded in the year 17928 at the College of
XVilliam and Mary. Since that time the development has been
rapid and the fraternities have become one of the important feat-
ures of American college life. There are now in the United
States more than one thousand fraternity chapters and more
than two liumlred and fifty thousand fraternity men.
Vollege fraternities are chartered by the federal government
and are recognized in a very large majority of the colleges and
universities of the land. A national fraternity must not be con-
fused with a mere local club, which is often times organized to
supplying the need in places where fraternities do not have chap-
ters. These clubs have generally proven unsatisfactory because
they lack the organization, outside association and close super-
vision of the national fraternity. Each fraternity has a different
mode of exercising this close supervision, but it is true in every
case that the national fraternity, with a well organiced form of
government, carefully guards the scholarship and the morality
of its members, for in this way alone is it enabled to keep pace
with its competitors. VVhenever a chapter becomes lax in its
morals or scholastic standing, an immediate and permanent im-
provement is demanded, and if such chapter does not respond
properly the charter is repealed and it ceases to exist.
The prime object of the Greek Letter Fraternity is good
fellowship. f'Its purpose is to give to a student friend-more
than ordinary friends-who will stand by him in the time of
prosperity and in the time of need, who will willingly aid him at
any time, and who will make his pleasures their pleasures and
his sorrows their sorrowsf' It is impossible for any one who has
not come in contact with these organizations to realize the esprit
de corps of a college fraternity. Chancellor Barrow of the Uni-
versity of Georgia says, t'The need which all normal people feel
for friends and intimates finds expression in the college through
these organizations. VVe find that wherever men come together
they naturally fall into groups. In the life of the university it
is natural that this social instinct should express itself in these
fraternities. It is a method of meeting human needf' The ideals
of these organizations inspire all that is good and noble in the
boy to lofty achievements and throw an influence of home life
around the young fellow, giving him 'fbrothersn who watch his
welfare as zealously as they do their own. "The successful fra-
ternity is founded upon broad principles of brotherhood, the
object being to uplift. the members in every way. In each Chap-
ter students from first to last year are brought together and the
younger men are given the benefit of the guidance of the older
heads. These older heads, in their time, had the benefit of the
same influence: so that in years of proper national supervision a
fraternity chapter becomes practically a family with the life of
a home and the influences that go with it.', Chapter meetings are
held where the social feeling is promoted, the welfare of the gen-
Mus. I.i:,xvi:i.i. "Co-eds--a necessary nuisance."
eral fraternity, the local chapter, and the individual members is
earnestly discussed, literary exercises are had, the ritualistic
works of the Order are studied and the ideals are inculcated.
The college fraternity is essentially a secret organization.
However, this secrecy is not carried to any damaging extent, for
the members are proud of their membership and they wear con-
spicuous badges and allow their names to be known and many of
the facts connected with their existence. The secret parts are
entirely contained in their rituals, codes and constitutions. Some
of the greatest men in American history have expended their
efforts and stamped their personalities upon the development of
these rituals, codes and forms of initiation. The peculiar ob-
jects of each fraternity, the meaning of its name, and the inter-
pretation of the symbolic designs are also closely guarded.
Their literature is very voluminous and is particularly wor-
thy of notice. First in the list comes the catalogues, which con-
tain the names, addresses and other biographical data concerning
the members. A large number have issued song books, and noth-
ing is calculated to arouse more enthusiasm than the notes of a
fraternity song. Histories are sometimes issued and many chap-
ters publish year books. Regular monthly journals are issued
by practically every national fraternity. It is true that the
American fraternity system owns much property. In many in-
stances the various chapters own homes of their own and it has
been conservatively estimated that the value of the fraternity
property in the United States is over five million dollars, to say
nothing of the initiation paraphernalia, etc. i
Entrance into these organizations is to be gained only upon
unanimous invitation of all the members of the particular chap-
ter, and consequently they are exclusive and every man in school
can not become a member. This is necessarily true for the chap-
ter must be composed of harmonious elements and it is admitted
that every man in college is not fitted for real home life with
every other man. Therefore, there can be no reflection upon the
man who is not invited to join a fraternity, nor is there any sen-
timent of that kind here at the Cniversity or in scarcely any cf
the colleges where the system prevails.
Fraternities have existed at the Cniversity of Mississippi
since the very foundation and have taken a leading part in all
phases of university life. The eight chapters of fraternities and

"A Taste of W ine"
HE YVINE gleamed like liquid rubies in the uplifted
glass. The light on the table, softened by the silken
shades to a rich earmine, steeped the little room in
warm, deep color and made the black eyes across the table from
Billy take on a purple hue, like the sheen of ripe grapes. Very
luscious eyes they were, smiling sleepily at Billy, and very de-
sirable did they seem to the older man who sat at their owner's left
and ogled with vinous, middle-aged facetiousness at the face
under the mass of dull black hair.
But Billy, apparently was not entirely conquered by the
alluring look so evidently for him alone, though his eye devoured
pleasurably the handsome creature in the dark red velvet gown.
Ilis gaze turned with a dim anxiety to the wine-glass in his hand,
and he rued the hour when, to fittingly climax a day of cajoling
tiresome, rankly provincial Mr. VVhiteway, he had invited that
elderly seeker for a lark to come to supper after her show, with
Molly and himself.
"Just a little supper, like you used to have when you were
a free-lance of the stage-door yourself," he had said, humoring
an insatiable desi1'e in the man to be considered a veteran blade.
And the benediet of many summers had responded rapturously,
though, if we must be painfully frank, his youthful visits to
New York had been spent mostly in viewing "the sights" from
the secure height of a sight-seeing tallyho. But that was before
he had made his money, and it was money that spanned the gulf
between his New York world of the then and the now-which
had marked him out to Billy's superiors as a highly desirable
customer, and the exceeding abundance of which had made the
assignment loom large in Billyls visions of business success,
causing him to toil patiently and skilfully for the consummation
of by far the biggest deal with which the firm had ever intrusted
So, bitterly as he begrudged the old bore his own evening's
pleasure, he decided that, for once, Billy, the animal, must be
denied his petting, and that the cozy little supper must complete
the process of inspiring Mr. Whiteway with a feeling of confi-
dence and fellowship that would loosen his tight-laced purse
But the sacrifice of his much-loved personal enjoyment had
involved another sacrifice which he had by no means foreseen, a
sacrifice symbolized by the wine-glass in his hand. VVhen Billy
had come to New York from the South five years before, he had
gradually taken on nearly all the paces of the tinsel-and-but
terfly chorus girl world, the circle seeming to offer the best fa-
cilities f or the fun which the normal young man eraved. Nearly
all, I say, for he had warily kept his boat to those parts of the
rollicking stream which glittered multi-colored with lighteopera
stars, and had so far avoided the dangerous eddies where he might
be drawn down by the laughing, cruel Spirit of VVine. Though
he worshiped and served diligently the well cared-for and in-
dulged Animal in him, he also worshiped the career which must
pay for the Animal's expensive tastes and gratify The Ani-
FIIESIINIAN-"IS that fellow, Junior Prom, a Senior this year?"
mal's desire for power over his fellows. The Other Thing, which light. as Billy loeked up at his glass. Tlae scent of the blood-red
he vaguely knew existed somewhere in his being, had eitl1er never roses in tl.e cormr breathed heavy sweetness on his senses. A
raised its head, or, if it had ever spoken, had been laughed down
by The Animal, which seemed so fully able to take care of Billy.
Tonight he had no intention of departing from his usual
abstemious wont, but a spirit of mischief possessed Molly. She.
and many others of her kind, had grown accustomed to what
they considered an eccentricity of Billy's, and drank his wine
with as much freedom as if he had been drinking with them.
Billy had thought that they overlooked his abstinence entirely.
but he had found tonight, to his annoyance, that Molly had only
waited for a time when she should have him at her mercy to re-
venge the vanity which was piqued by his oft-repeated refusals
to drink with her. She had managed her campaign skilfully, so
as not to anger Billy into real resistance, and as she saw that, for
some tiresome business reason, Billy was obliged to court the
stranger, she made the infatuated Mr. lvhiteway do the actual
work. Having casually called attention to the absence of the
wine-glass at the host's place, she adroitly set Mr. lVhiteway on
to insist that the circle should not thus be broken.
In vain had Billy fenced and evaded and changed the sub-
ject. Mr. Vvhiteway, vain of the liking which Billy had all day
labored to make him think he had inspired in the younger man,
and inflamed by his unusual wine-bibbing just to the point of
unmanageable obstinacy, would not hear to Billy,s not joining
them in a glass or two.
"Bly boyf' he said solemnly, "I wouldnit think of letting
you get too much. But just three drinks for your stomaclfs
sake can,t hurt you."
And Billy, unable to dodge the issue, quickly decided to
break his rule and finish out his day of humoring, reasoning that
one time wouldn't hurt him and that the collapse of this YVhite-
way deal would ruin him.
The wine sparkled merrily and almost laughed in the red
Viennese walt.. came softly from the main room of the restaurant
below. Molly looked languishingly at him with those purple-
black eyes. and he felt tl:e blood course hotly through his veins.
Yaguely at first, then strongly, as he listened to YVhiteway's
fatuous. long-drawn toast, he realized that it was not only the
clierished deal which was carrying the glass to his lips. He knew
tl'at The Animal was calling for the wine which sent its heavy
aronta into his nostrils, calling in no uncertain terms for the
tickling of the palate and the pleasurable uplifting of spirit it
1 .'.' ould ati'ord. He knew that The Animal had always looked
well to his interests. and he was strongly disposed to trust him
The toast. amid stifled yawns from Molly, came to an end,
if not to a point. The auditors laughed politely, and the glasses
clinked. Billy raised his and sipped,-then set it down abruptly.
lvas it the strength of the wine that set his heart to pound-
ing. and his mind to groping for a lost association? Evidently,
he laughed to himself. he must go slow in this wine business.
1Iolly's toast was short and pointed, for Molly could be
clever when she chose. The glasses, refilled, clinked again, and
again. and again Billy's glass went to his lips. And once lllOl'L'
l.e set it down quickly. Tlte pounding at his heart was more in-
sistent. and his mind was stirred to its depths with its wild groping
after something whose very nature was utterly dark to him. He
put his hand to his brow and bent every faculty to the task of
finding the association that was so elusive,4a something con-
nected mysteriously with the taste of the wine.
But his perturbed thoughts were cut short. The toasts had
gone the rounds, and, little as he felt like it, he must make his,
or spoil the effects of his efforts. He rallied his powers and rose
in his place.
"Dear f riendsf'-he began mechanically. His voice seemed
HSHOATEM XVoo'rr:x-"Yes, just a little younger than fPig.' "
to belong to another being. He wondered dazedly what words he
would hear next.
"Here,s a toast to her we all love-here's a toast to her we
all hope some day to hold in our arms,-t'
llolly blushed and cast her eyes down.
Then again the strange voice-
'tHere's to"-some word trembled on the twitching lips,
seeming to strufffrle to mass a threshold unfamiliar to it-"To
Realization smote Billy with stunning force. The lost as-
sociation was lost no longer. Upon his mind flashed the picture
it had groped for,-a little church with organ-loft and choir iii
front, with white-robed rector down before the congregation,
blessing the bread and wine over which they knelt-in that
flock, a woman with quiet sweetness of soul written deep on her
face, and beside her a boy with the goblet held reverently to his
YVine! C'ould the fiery, flashing Enchantress in the fragile
crystal here be akin to the holy beverage of that holy day long
ago? His mind ran rapidly over the years between. Not a sip
had he taken since that last C'ommunion. Here, then, was the
key to his weirdly inopportune toast.
Ilis companions were forgotten. He sat staring straight
past the girl's gleaming white shoulders. His soul was in the
little church beneath the warm spring sky. The scent of the
passion-colored roses in the corner seemed to come to him fresh
and sweet from the rector's garden by the sunny church wall.
The orchestra down-stairs played an Hungarian melody, wild
and sensuous, but he heard only the sink and swell of the little
pipe-organ, and the low chant of the choir. His eye wandered
from Molly's beautiful shoulders to her heavy coiled hair, but he
saw black hair' tlecked with gray and a face with naught of
Molly's in it but the divine woman-look that still lingered in the
Mother,-and unwelcome! He bowed his head in bitterness,
and a tear forced itself out. An inopportune guest to his heart
and his lips! And she was no longer where those lips and that
heart could make reparation, for their treachery.
The blackness of his ingratitude overwhelmed him. Oh, for
a chance to kiss that grey-flecked black hair and watch the happy
tears well .up in sweet brown eyes ! All the bitterness of a loss that
had had but a passing effect swept over him, and the tears came
fast and scorching.
Suddenly, almost with a jerk, he again saw his companions,
and pity for them made him forget for a moment his own an-
guish of soul. They were both watching him with a fascinated
stare, but the painful working of their features told him that
their thoughts were turned inward. The man seemed actually
shrunken in his misery. His browi was puckered as if in physical
pain. But even as Billy's gaze met his, the tears came to his re-
lief, and ran down the now relaxed features that showed old and
drawn since the pitiful faeetiousness was gone, and the wine had
lost its power.
The girl was lividly white. Billy looked at her eyes, and
shuddered at the awfulness of their agony. For in lNIolly
The Animal had proven too strong for the Other Thing that had
awakened so late, and the Other Thing was dying hard. Even
as he looked she rose hastily, her white bosom heaving and the
terrible eyes of pain staring straight before her, and fled silently
from the room.
So all the scales fell from Billy's eyes and many things
were made plain,-that The Animal cannot take care of any
man, and that sooner or later it must come to a death-fight be-
tween The Animal and the Other Thing which is called The Soul.

A Review of the Season
HEN Coach Stauffer and Captain Steve Mitchell as-
sembled the varsity men of last year, the prep-school
recruits and the promising material from the Fresh-
man class on the athletic field, Mississippi's football stock began
to rise by strides. Blen with football brains and conservative
judgment predicted a banner year for "Ole Miss." To view
the stalwart bunch of athletes made the breast of every loyal
and patriotic student swell. In his mind,s eye he could see Yandy
trary, at all times showed the true manly spirit and fought every
inch of the ground.
Officially the season opened on the Campus, September 30th,
with Memphis High School. The Memphis lads put up aplucky
fight, but were smothered to the tune of +2 to 0. The entire I'ni-
versity squad played a star game and gained over their much
lighter opponents almost at will. In this game Henry Volm, the
right guard of last year's team, and one of the strongest men of
iv if 'K i '4 in A-L I
walloped, the championship pennant snatched from her grip
and planted over the camp of the Red and Blue.
Everybody, at home and abroad, conceded that Mississippi
had the State pennant cinched, and that it was only a question
of how many points would be piled up on the farmer lads on
Thanksgiving Day. Neither of the above happened. The
bearers of the Red and Blue, however, on no occasion showed
the white feathcr or flinched from their tasks, but, on the con-
this year's aggregation, received an injury that put him out of
the game for the rest of the season, except for a few minutes in
the Mercer contest. The loss of Cohn was the first of many
misfortunes that beset the team. His absence was keenly felt in
every game that followed.
On October 5th "Ole Miss" applied the same whitewash
roller to S. P. U., coming within one point of duplicating the
score made against. the Memphis lads. The Presbyterian aggre-

gation we1'e moderately heavy and ought to have held "Ole llissn
to a nmch closer score, but at that time the Mississippi machine
was irresistible and her line impregnable.
L. I. I. came next. Ive met them on the Campus October
13th, and contrary to the predictions ot' all, they held "The
.Elevenv to only 12 points. Had it not been for C'ahall's two goals
from field that were so beautifully executed the game would have
ended with t'Ole Miss,' the winner by one hard-earned touch-
down. The Louisiana boys showed great skill in tackling, un-
Mississippi College on the 29th at Jackson. In the game with
Henderson-Brown, Cahall loomed into prominence with his won-
derful drop kicking which made a decisive victory of Q-L to 12
out of an otherwise tie score. The probable reason that the
team did not make a larger score was because they were holding
themselves in reserve for the Texas game. Texas defeated us
17 to 0, and for the first time in two years Ilississippi failed to
score. It is only fair to say in connnendation of the Texas
bunch that they had a better team than we-that is, a much

usual speed, and on the v.l1ole played a game that would retlect
credit on any institution. But, alas! two things happened in
this game that spread gloom over our camp. First, Pete Shields
had his collar-hone dislocated which kept him out of' the game
until the A. It M. contest: and second, Rube Barker received a
sprained shoulder which prevented him from playing in any ot'
the games on the Wlestern invasion.
On October 22nd "Ole Miss" started on her first trip, on
which she met three teams: Henderson-Brown at Arkadelphia on
the 23rd, Texas A. it M. at College Station on the 26th and
heavier and a more experienced aggregation-and in justifica-
ton of Mississippi that she was undoubtedly hampered by the
comparative lightness of her men, absence of Cohn, Shields and
Barker and the disadvantage of playing on a strange field and
before an unsympathetic audience. There is no doubt in the
minds of any of the t'Ole Miss" supporters but that, if the game
had been played on a neutral field, with the above mentioned men
at their usual stands the score would have been at least a tie. In
the contest with Mississippi College practically all the varsity

men retired in favor of the scrubs. The scrubs acquitted them-
selves admirably, tearing them up 28 to 0.
Ivhen the team came back strenuous practice began again
in preparation for the contest with Mercer. They we1'e met on
November llth at Macon, and as the score of 154 to 0 indicates.
they were completely and decisively whipped. In the last quarter
of that game, Adams. our center, and one of the niainstays of the
team, received an injured knee that laid him up for the remain-
der of the season. This loss to tlte team was tlze last of a series
departure was marked by the most enthusiastic student demon-
stration that has ever been given to a Mississippi athletic team.
Two hundred and fifty supporters followed the next day on a
special train. They were led by four cheer leaders. and through-
out tlxe game. even when hopes for victory were shattered to the
four winds and a defeat by a small score was impossible their
yells ot' encouragement to the team could be heard nmch clearer
and louder than those elnlttecl from the enemies' camp.
There were two contributing causes to the defeat-girst, the
that rendered "Ole Miss" weaker tlian she liad been at any other
previous time,-and weaker at a most inopportune time.-on the
eve of the most important and greatest contest in the history of
her football career,-the one with Yandy.
Spurred on by the victory over Mercer and the known and
proved ability of her team, 'tUle Miss" began to get in trim for
this affrav. Two weeks were s ent in hard si0'nal racticc and
B I P n D 0 s
every man was required to observe the strictest rules of training.
Daily the men were reminded by the students that 'Wandy must
be defeated? The s uad left two davs before the frame. The
absence of three stars from the eleven: second. the unquestioned
superiority of Vanderbilt. Adams, Shields and Colin were still
unable to play. The first quarter ended with no scoring. but in
the second the fitness and ability of Yandy's llackfield- I say
Yandy's backfield because without a doubt therein laid her
strength-soon told and a touch-down was made. During the
three remaining quarters two touch-downs and a goal from field
.vere scored, making the final score 21 to 0.
In no stage of the game did BIississippi's fighting spirit
wane. Even in the third quarter when the game was irretriev-

ably lost, "Ole Miss" tackled just as hard as in the first and re-
peatedly tore open Vandy's line for long gains. Several times
a few more yards would have given Mississippi a touch-down,
but it seemed ust at those crucial moments something unexpected
would happen and Vandy would come in possession of the ball.
The season closed with A. it M. at Jackson on Thanksgiving
Day. As is the custom, the student body went down and wit-
nessed the game. There was probably more mystery surrounding
that game than any other "Ole Miss" has ever played. Neither
eleven which resulted in a general change in the linerupg and in
the second, luck was against us. Many times the ball was lost
on fumbles and whenever distance was gained or lost A. 8: ll-
was the fortunate one.
Some things stand out prominently in the season's record.
First. there was the courage and grit shown by the team when
they met a heavier and stronger opponent. Even when they were
ontplayed and scored upcn they never quit. Then there was the

great success and scoring ability displayed by the team when
- Q. f -
s'de scored in the first two quarters. In the third the ball was
passed toward Captain Mitchell, but instead of the ball being
received by him and the play executed it went wild, bouncing
toward our goal. And who should be there but a fleet-footed
farmer lad, who, picking the ball up, with only a few yards to
go and not a Mississippi man in tackling distance, bounded
across our goal for a touch-down. That touch-down, which was
the only one made during the game can not be labeled anything
but a "fluke," y
Mississippi's inability to score may be assigned to many
causes. In the first place several men were absent from the
they were all together and in good condition. This, however,
happened only once or twice during the season. If misfortune
had left the team reasonably intact and unhampered no eleven
this side of the Mason and Dixon line could have scorfd on them
and beyond a doubt our beautiful vision of the State and South-
ern championship would have been fulfilled. Finally, the ardent
and constant support of the team by the students was never
lacking. They demonstrated their loyalty to the team at all
times because they were the standard bearers of the Red and
Blue, the banner that is so dear to all that are now or ever have
been connected with the great old institution.

"Little Scotchie," so dubbed because of hav-
ing an elder brother to precede him here, has
the stubborn, unconquerable disposition char-
acteristic of his highland tribe. Recognizing
these qualities in him, Coach Stauffer shifted
him to a permanent place at center after
.Xdams was forced out because of his disabil-
ities. He has made good as a pivot man, in
spite of the fact that this is his first year on
the team. 3IcCall's experience reaches back a

"Speedy Pete." the acknowledged premier
punter of' the South, has shown his superiority
throughout the season-averaging forty-five
yards. From full-back he usually hits the line
for a gain, and is a speed demon when he car-
ries the ball. Hard luck overtook Shields in
the first real game, and with a broken collar-
hone he was forced to remain inactive until
the clash with AX. K M. College. But, notwith-
standing this accident, he received honorable

The innocent nursery name, "NVillie," seems
strangely out of place in being applied to this
fiery pigskin pugilist. In spite of the handicap
of carrying only one hundred and fifty pounds,
Yandevere is one of the most effective and
dreinded tacklers of the red and blue line. His
rnsurpassed courage and grit, in conjunction
with his fleetness of foot, makes him a valu-
able asset on the left end. He has been beaten,
hut never conquered, he has been pummeled
and punched from all sides, but never has he
been injured to speak of, in fact, the fighting
spirit in him so predominates that he is not
aware of cuts, sprains, bruises or breaks until

All Southern end, Captain, Coach and Cen-

experience in the Central High School, of Phila-
delphia, Pa., as credentials, he readily cinched
the right point of the varsity line in his fresh-
man year. He carries one lmndred and eighty

This is the showing made for the season by the University
Scrub team, and its victories were not the most useful part of
its services, for next y6Ell',S Varsity must depend, in some measure
at least, on this year's Scrub team for material.
Samuels in the line played a uniformly excellent game and
should be a good man next, year. Breeland did good work at end
and, had he been eligible, would have stood a good chance of
taking the Varsity trips. Haralson and Alexander in the hack-
field worked hard and made a good showing. But space is lack-
ing to give honorable mention to all who deserve it, forievery
man earned his share of praise.
All honor then to the Scrubs, who work unceasingly without
glory and without honor. Their efforts will not be useless for
on the foundation they are laying will be built the Varsity that
will battle triumphantly next fall for the Southern Championship
and, on Thanksgiving Day, lay A. K Mfs hopes low in the dust.

The football season of 1910 was undoubtedly the best in the
history of athletics at the University. An account of the sea-
sons and games was unfortunately left out of the t'Ole llissn
of 1911, and for that reason we feel it our duty to pay the de-
served honor to the team in this issue.
The season has been called the best because the team met but
one defeat, was only scored upon by one team, was ranked second
fa 'jump of five places from the rank of the previous yearj, and
had one member of the team picked for the All Southern team,
with five others receiving honorable mention. The Red and Blue
team had never been so highly honored before.
The season opened on October lst with the gritty lads from
Memphis High School on the campus. In this game much new
material was tried ont and for that reason the team worked slowly.
Although we had little trouble in keeping the high school lads
from scoring, it was all the raw material could do to push over
a touchdown in each half, the final score being 10 to 0.
The doctors from the University of Memphis were the next
on the card. The score of that game nearly shattered the hopes
of the "Ole Miss" followers, but the wise ones who observed the
game closely knew what to hope for. The ltlemphis aggregation
spent no more than thirty seconds in the Red and Blue territory,
but our offense was so listless that the only score made was on a
safety in the second half. This 2 to 0 defeat was very encour-
aging to the BIC-mphis lads, and they left the campus with the
determination to turn the tables if they could possibly get an-
other date with us that season. Barker, a new man of Wonderful
promise received an injury in this game which kept him off of the
field for the 1'est of the season.
On the thirteenth of October Doctor Stauffer took his war-
riors to New Orleans and lined them up against the much her-
alded Tulane team. The Olive and Blue proved to be an inclined
plane, for Mississippi started with a rush that accelerated
throughout the remainder of the season. Capt. John l1IcCall was
largely responsible for the 15-0 victory over Tulane, as the team
caught the spirit of his fearless attack and dogged defense.
When the team returned to the campus for practice they
showed all the tire and snap of a climax game, and fulfilled all
prophecies when they met Mississippi College at Clinton. Using
as few regulars as possible the Red and Blue made her fourth
clean sweep, and this time ran up a total of twenty-four points,
while their opponents were unable to score.
While "Ole Miss" was scoring twenty-four points on Mis-
sissippi Uollege Vanderbilt was holding Yale at New Haven to a
scoreless tie. Neither Vanderbilt nor "Ole Miss" had been scored
upon up to their date of November the fourth. As a matter of
fact, we had never scored on Vanderbilt in all our football games.
But now came the time when something had to happen. They

compromised. Each team scored. In the second quarter Mor-
rison, 'fthe wonderful," picked a punt out of the air and went
through the Red and Blue team for ninety yards and a touch-
down. Later Vanderbilt scored a field goal. However, Missis-
sippi, being in Vanderbilt ter1'itory most of the time, was able to
score on a safety and came out of the game defeated, but not
crushed at a 9-2 score.
VVith several substitutes in the game ff0le Miss" next met
Alabama at Greenville on a wet Saturday. Capt McCall only
played a few minutes. The inspiration of his presence was
needed at times, but the fighting machine ground out a 16-0 vic-
tory, and thereby got the ffdopev as to the ranking of the teams
in the S. I. A. A., over several teams who found excuses not to
Since the good start the University of Memphis team got
on our campus she accomplished great things, and after very
little debating was able to arrange another game with us to be
played in Memphis. Both teams were unsatisfied with the pre-
vious score of two to nothing, but the most unsatisfied party
concerned was our wise coach, Doctor Stauffer. His critical eye
told him the worth of both teams, and he was very willing to give
Coach Buckingham satisfaction. In this game Kinnehrew acted
as captain in the absence of McCall. The big tackle felt the
weight of the honor and used it to advantage, fighting like a de-
mon all the time. The team, almost as willing to follow one "red
head" as another, "got right" and satisfied the Memphians to the
harmony of -L-L to 0.
The final game of the season-that with A. and M. at Jack-
son-proved to be a Hturkey trotf' The teams were very evenly
matched both in weight and scores before, but-. A. and M.
gained 124 yards while U. of II. gained 519. A. and M. was
unable to score, while the Red and Blue chalked up thirty points.
1Vhat more remains to be said?
Great credit is to be given to this fighting machine, a ma-
chine sighted by a lovable captain and set up and oiled by :1
confiding coach. This 'machine scoring 111 points to its oppo-
nents nine was a unit, and its common fractions were Doctor
Nathan P. Stauffer, coachg John MCC all, captain: Church Lee,
Earl Kinnebrew, 4tChuck" Trotter, Mitchell, Adams, Causey,
Carter, Alex Powe, Haxton, Hathorne, Cohn, YVa.lton, Shields,
Guess and Cleveland.

"The Varsity of ineleen-Eleveni'
YVhen Coach Moss sounded the call for aspiring candidates
in the n-:tional pastime at the begilming of the nineteen-eleven
season. ne found, with the exception of one man, Capt. .-Xustin,
that tl.e trusty machine of nineteen-ten had passed out. that
even with this handicap to overcome, the outlook was not dis-
couraging for :1 winning team, for the Freshman Class was rich
in material and turned out dozens of applicants of some base-
ball ability-each applicant dreaming of the time when he would
w.-ar the coveted "Mn and eager for a chance to make good.
In time, however, some hopes were blasted! The weeding
out proei ss necessarily came, and with it a reduction of the squad
to less than a score of members. Then operations began in real
earnest and when the smoke and confusion cleared up in about
ten days the machine of nineteen-eleven had been welded into
At the end of the receiving line, guarding the interest of the
plate, was "l'ete', Shields, the big, all-around athlete of the
Freshman Ulass. Opposite him was the light, but plucky, little
pitcher, Lane l'handler, possessing a head of remarkable cool-
ness for one so young and having the other qualities which are
requisite for a successful slab artist. From the initial sack,
"Pedro" XVilson, the infield find of the season, shot so much gin-
ger into the proceedings that the game was warm at all times.
"Billy" Tucker, a hard-hitting, sure-fielding lad, took care of
the keystone bag, while the space between the second and third
stations was ably covered by "Billy" Cahall, a smooth-tempered
little Yankee, who, although a bit weak with the willow, over-
came any minor defects by his fielding qualities and his uncon-
querable spirit. As to the third bag, no apprehensions were felt,
for no less a personage than Captain Austin, himself, was sta-
tioned there. Only two of the berths in the sun garden were per-
manently taken until the season had far advanced. In the left
section "Bunk" VVilbourn easily landed a place,' and "Little
Scotchiev McCall took care of the right section. Near the close
of the season 'tBill"iBailey, of batting fame, was lodged in cen-
ter. About this time two other valuable assets were added in
"Steve" Mitchell and t'Artie', Jordan. The former coming to
the aid of the badly crippled pitching staff, the latter going
into his old position in the out-field. Thus the team battled until
the season closed.
Insofar as the results of the games indicate, the season was
not a successful one. But when the adverse circumstances are
considered and when the fact that all material was new and un-
tried is noted, it must be conceded that the outcome reflects much
credit upon those who gave their best efforts to the cause. There
have been more successful teams in the history of our institution,
but a gamer, pluckier, more spirited bunch never crossed bats

Tins Red and Blue Basket Ball Team, State champions of
1911, again went through the season without meeting defeat in
Mississippi and is heralded as the 19192 champs. The boys on
the team averaged up to a good size, outweighing every team
they met, except perhaps the L. S. U., and they knew how to use
their weight to the right purpose. Because of this they were ap-
preciated everywhere they went for their clean sportsmanship.
Their fast consistent playing was the only fault their opponents
could find with them, hut it won the hearts and hands of the
rooters before they left the floor.
The team as a whole may he judged by its results, but in so
.judging it should he understood that only three members played
in all the games and that the team received several severe set-
hacks hy the continual changing of' men at forwards. At crit-
ical periods of the season too much work, sickness, and the fae-

"JIM" Yanni us f"Aw. tell it to the wind."
Tl1is scoring machine, if picked to pieces, would have three
parts, i. e., center, forwards and guards. After exhausting all
the texts on the subject, an analylitical summary of the indi-
viduals might read as follows:
At center, By VValton, captain and strategist of the team,
had little difficulty in out-jumping his opposing centers. This
insured success to each play and by the execution of signals con-
fidence was given to the team at the start. His work did not stop
here, however. His dribbling, passing and shooting were almost
perfect: the former disorganizing the opposing team and the
latter making him the highest scorer for Ole Miss. Being quick,
strong and heady, the essential qualities of a basket-ball player,
and having perfect control over his 180 pounds, he is considered
throughout the South as the best in the gante. VValton was also
the coach of the team. He built up a strong scrub team which
gave the Varsity good practice. His success in this line may be
judged by the quality of the team turned out. This versatile
athlete might almost be said to be the "patron saint" of basket-
ball at the University of Mississippi. Certain it is that he has
done more toward creating a keen interest. in the game and
putting out a team whose excellence is compared with the base-
ball and football teams than any one who has ever been he1'e.
As a reward and acknowledgment of his Zeal, ability and popu-
larity his team-mates unanimously elected him captain for 1913.
The forwards, en account of their continual changing, were
never able to work with the desired smoothness. It would not
be complimentary to the teants that opposed us if we speculate
upon the results, had this smootlmess ever worked throughout all
the games. As it were, the forwards were always able to score
and showed a fighting spirit that left their opposing guards
with a rememln'ance of the game.
"Spout" Austin, playing for the third season, was excep-
tionally fast. He was l'athe1' light to cope with the big guards
who were always sent against him, but his accurate passing and
su1'e shooting more than eounterbalanced. His foul shooting
and knowledge of the game made him invaluable. 4
"I'ap', Pound, another light forward, played his second
season. He is tall, able to execute passes and signals in close
quarters: quick at sizing up his opponent and cluding him at
the proper tinxe. His shooting was always good and he was
never at fault on the signals.
"Big" Tucker is also a veteran and made his need felt when
he did play. He is not easily hoxul by his opposing guard and
seldom wastes a shot. This season he proved to be the "pinch-
hitterv of the team.
"Fresh" McDonald, who learned the gauze at Summerland
High School last year, was not given a regular berth at forward
until the latter part of the season, but in the short time he played
he exhibited such a willingness to work and so much spirit that
he proved an asset.
'tSam,, Long and "Scotch" McCall also experienced thefr
first year on tlie Varsity, were hard workers and dependable.
At guard there were few changes during the whole season,
which gave tlte men in that position a better chance to work to-
gether. "Pete,' Shields and t'Billy" Cahall are the best in the
South. They have been able to shut out their forwards almost at
will, and, at the sante time, have been big cogs in the signal

Q - . ' ' iis worked exceptionally well, as Shields is an excel-
lt nt shooter. YYith his big strides and long arms he would work
e ball to the basket and drop it in, umnindful of the several
nan hmnoino on l
- : g' g inn. During the season he played every posi-
tion on the team and was never at fault at any.
Vahall. whose opposing forwards scored the meager aver-
lfu ol out or
gf ' - g mal per game, had the unique faculty of being able

: 'h ' . - " ga - 'ast, knows how to dribble, and, like
Sllieltls and lYalton, was playing his second year on the team.
"Bill" liailc-v. in the few games in which he played, was
:ther good guard. Ile is heavy and knows how to use eve1'y
nce to advantage, which means that he knows how to worry
1 forward to the point of dcspondency.
The general work of the guards may be summed up in the
v score n-'ale against the team, though, of course, they were
not responsible for all the opponents' goals. Few teams in the
country who have played twelve games have held their op-
ponents to less than Q00 points.
The scrub team deserves much credit for its untiring ef-
forts and should have a place of glory along with the Varsity.
Lack of space, however, makes it impossible to give to the scrubs
all the credit due them, but their men, Haxton, Tucker, Haral-
son, Harris, Chandler, 1Ving, Spence and Miller should be con-
sidered a part of the Varsity.
The season was a big success from all viewpoints, i. c.,
exercise, victories and finance. More students took an interest
in the frame than ever before a11d every day in practice found
from fifteen to thirty men using the single court on the campus.
About fifty in all used the court at some time during the season.
Then the team won ten out of twelve games I
the best showing ever made by any of our previous teams, al-
ilayed, which is
though the 1911 team, with ten victories out of thirteen games,
came very close. Financially the team supported itself.

To the greatest court of all. Obey its high decree. '
The juclge's name is "Pedro", The Freshman first is sentenced

They,ll surely catch him quick. The girl he'll ne'er forget.
There is the worthy sheriff, The doctors have their turn at him,
VVho's duty's to apply They try to save his life,
The sentence of his "Honor," There are scars upon his frame,
And to do his best he'll try. Left by the ink and knife.
And finally to end the scene,
The Freshman, in his bliss,
To a ne'er forgotten tune,
Sings his laundry list.

SEYDIOUR-urxw, shoot, Pitt, you are the biggest dunce I ever did see."
The Consfiiuiional Convention of the Blackstone Club
OI'Sl'1, come to order," burst in bloody Irish tones
from President Mike Sennett Conner, with an air as
much as possible like Champ C'lark-and-the-House-ot'-
Heprcsentatives. Vordill and Day light cigars and turn their
toes and attention toward the Speaker. Blackwell and Hosey
prepare to obey by rolling a halt'-plug of Brown Blule into their
jaws. Silence seems imminent. President I'onner, in a still,
Irish voice, orders the Secretary to call the roll. Mr. VVise from
Yazoo rises with the distinguishld bearing of .I Sis-7
lVs :sff , and in measured tones sizes up the assembly. Then
turning to Mr. Buckley asks, "VVas I right in marking you ab-
sent at last meeting, Mr. Buckley," Buck wakes up and says,
"Sir." lvise repeats, "lVas I right in marking you absent at
last meeting?" Buck, "Ia-I don't know, sir: I wasnlt here, you
sec, sir." President Vonner impressed silence by pounding his
fist on the table.
The Secretary reads the minutes of the last meeting, con-
taining, among other things, a motion to the effect, "That the
Vonstitution be adopted at the next meeting of the I'lub, and
that all amendments and objections to the same must be pre-
sented in writing, parts not amended or objected to, to be con-
sidered adopted without being read." Mr. f'leveland objects.
"Ml: l'hairman, I :un not pretending to be :L good constitutional
lawyer, but I don't believe its constitutional to adopt a con-
stitution that way without reading it.', Mr. Day, "IIow can it
be nnconstitutional when wc have no K'onstitution?"
Mr. Loch, "Miz President, I would like to remind the gen-
tlemen that we have been trying to adopt this Constitution for
several months, and have never been able to read it through be-
cause of so many objections. 'I'herefore, the intent of this mo-
tion is to get it oft' our hands."
Mr. Brown, t'M1'. President, that's just the trouble, there
never was such a conglomeration of stuff packed into a Fon-
stitution as there is in this one: there is no connection from the
preamble to the peroration. Ivhy, Mr. President, you canlt tell
heads from tails, or where you are at, anywhere in it. There-
fore, I move we table this niotionf,
Conner, "You are out of order, Mr. Brown. The proper
motion would be to rescindf'
Mr. Brown, "Then I move that we rescind."
Dorroh, HI second the motionf'
Mr. McLean, "I move that the motion to rescind be tabled."
Steve Mitchell, "Second the motion, Mr. I'resident.',
The vote is called and the ayes have it. "The motion to
rescind is lost," announced the President.
Mr. Ayres, t'Mr. President, permit me to state in defense
of the committee who d1'ew up this Constitution, and for the
benefit of the gentleman who has attacked it, that when doing
this work we had before us the Vonstitution of' Hermaean I.it-
erary Society, the Constitution of l'hi Sigma Literary Society,
the Fonstitution of' the State of' Mississippi, and the Constitu-
tion of' the United States."
"Co-uns" 'HX menacing' ealaniity increasing ye:u'ly"f"Pio" NNOOTEN.
B, v gg!!
IO!! n, 1hat's just the trouble.',
President Conner, "Are there any written amendments or
objections? fNobody had even read the great document.,
There seems to be none. The Constitution stands adoptedf'
Kyle, rising with all the dignity of his great granclfather,
said: 'SML President, I move that we go into the election of
officers for the second term."
Hosey turns over the Brown Mule and seconds the motion.
Brown, 'QI move to table the motion."
Dorroh, "I second itf,
Judge YVilson stops writing out the verdict to be inflicted
on the next Freshman brought before the Court of St. James,
and remarks: "Mix President, I wish to speak in behalf of Mr.
Kyle's motion to elect. The time is propitious for the election,
for we have enough members present to Hll the offices this morn-
ing, and we can't tell when we shall be so fortunate againf,
Brown, 4'There is no need to shift positions at all. livery
one has an office now."
llr. VVilroy fwho has just entered sehooll, 'tMr. President,
I have been taken into this club. Am I entitled to vote Fl'
body before us that it will be a delight to gaze upon. The man
to whom I refer is Hou. Johnnie lloslilllsfi
Mr. H., "Ml: C'hairmau, I fullv appreciate the honor the
gcntleman does me. In fact, the fragrance from the exquisite
bouquet that hc has flung at me stiflcs my utterance. But I must
ask that he withdraw my name, as my duties are so precarious
and multifarious that it is impossible for me to share the pleas-
ures of many of thesm meetings."
The name is withdrawn and a president elected. The elec-
tion of a vice-p1'esident is in order.
Mr. llvilson. "Mix President. I wish to nominate a man whose
cqual for this place has never been seen since Satan hapt from
Glory and Adam fell from grace. Such a leader of men has not
been produced since Hannibal aeroplaned the Alps and
played rings round Rome, or since Caesar crossed the Rubicon
and heat the Gaul out of Greece. This noble and notable Roman
is none other than our own beloved Bill Foote." Foote returns
the compliment by nominating Yvilson. lVilson's wind wagon
served him well and he won.
The otlice of secretary was the next bone of contention.
Five men were nominated. Glowing words depicted the cali-
l Conner, HYcs, sir: you have a perfect right to vote. You graphy of the Hyperions, you could ahnost see the footprints
became a prima facie member of this club, ab initio, when you of their handwriting on the wall. The die was cast. Two can-

llr. Patrick, t'lIr. fllltllfllltlll, I rise to nominate gl man laggards tied. The very fact that there had been a tie-created
for President. who has toddled in the tracks of George lvashing- confusion. Uut of the clamor the president ordered that the
ton since his trundle-bed davs, and for this reason alone deserves two highest should run it out. By this time Bedlam had begun
the job. But furthermore,ihe looks like he is hgncst, mul I bg- to tear the sheets and a cry arose that all nmst run again. The

the president was correct, that i11 Mississippi we had only two
primaries. The house sank hack on its pillars.
Mr. Ames worms out of a book in the corner to see what
the eonnnotion means. About twelve more officers were elected
and the election declared closed.
Mr. Brown, "1I1'. President, I move that we adjourn."
Mr. Dorroh, "Second the motionf,
Mr. Conner, "Just one thing more before we adjourn, gen-
Adam and Blackwell move and second that Brown's mo-
tion be tabled. It was.
C'onner, "I would like for you to decide today whether you
prefer to have individual pictures grouped, or a group photo-
gi-aphed, for the Annual."
M r. Kyle, "I move that we have individual pictures grouped
for the Annual. This august and dignified body should not
lower itself to the level of Freshmen and Sophomores by having
an ordinary group picture. Gentlemen, I appeal to your
Mr. Foote, HMI: President, I am in favor of having a group
photographed. From my experience you could never get all these
men to have individual pictures made, but you can herd them up
here somewhere, for instance, 011 the Library steps. That beau-
tiful building would cause any personal imperfection we happen
to have to vanish before its grandeur. Then, gentlemen, this
club, as has been demonstrated here this morning, is com-
posed of men who are destined to fire shots heard round the
world, and I want one of these precious photographs containing
the pictures of every one of you. Surely such an array of talent
will never beam down from one cardboa1'd againf,
Mr. VVilson, "Mix President, the dignity of this body can
ll0t allow it to crawl up on some stone steps and face a northern
blizzard and have itself frozen into statues for the pleasure of
Mr. Foote. VVhat sights we would be by the time the picture
man came, there squinting at the wind and trying to smile,
squatting on the steps like jack-rabbits in a blizzard, or leering
downward from the pillars with wind-bleared eyes, looking like
ascending stars with the accent on the donkey. Mr. President,
I only wish I could find words to express just how much I am
in favor of Mr. Kyle's motionf'
But the vote was taken and the motion was lost. The
House adjourned, but it has a meeting to elect officers every

NOW YE, that thou hast set thyself woefully adrift
in a land of great tribulation, out of which escape lies
only in a most humble observance of ancient customs.
This word from the wise may start ye right. Get ye not in the
wrong. READ AND HEED.
The grass will die of jealousy if thy green features ap-
pear above it, so beware of the campus in thy infantile tod-
dlings, and let not thy baby feet stray from the straight and
Pockets are made for men, not for infants, and it were
indeed better for thy Mellins Food conveyors to be left at home
in thy 1nothe1"s lap than that one of thy noble guardians should
find them stored away with thy fish-hooks and penny-suckers.
Swarm not about the doors of the Dining Hall, lest ye be
the first one in. Thy nimble legs must carry you softly and
quietly in, after thy betters liave shown the way.
Thy intestinal ecstacy depends upon the quiet with which
thou soppest thy zip. Being a jackass thou canst not horse-
laugh, and thy ears are large enough to hear all announcements.
Therefore, no noise, no comment.
At no time let the loudness of thy mouth exceed the noise
of thine attire, for it were truly better that thou shouldest be
deaf, dumb, and clothed in thy natural greenness than that thou
shouldst exceed thy meager allowance.
Reef not thy trousers lest thou expose thy shanks innnod-
Beware the damsels, Oh Freshmen, for any connnunication
with the fair ones invites disaster swift and certain, even unto
the third degree.
Respect the upper classmen, and yield them the right-of-
way on all occasions, for even an infant and a man cannot oc-
cupy the same space at the same time.
It is ordained in the High Tribunals that all Freshmen
proceed at once to learn all the songs and yells of OLE MISS.
Know them frontwards, backwards, betwixt and in the middle.
It may save you many a marathon.
Honor thy University and thy class, and do whatsoe'er
thou art told. Seek to follow the advice of thy lords, the Sopho-
morcs, whom ye will address as such, for the Class of Nineteen-
Fourteen is going to see that thou art b1'ought up properly, and
191-L is on the job. .

A Pledge to Ole Panola
A pledge to Ole Panola, lads!
The country of our birth,
Of any place upon the map,
The dearest spot on earth.
Our homes are there, our hearts are there,
Our friends and kindred, too,
And there our Sweethearts dream of us
Beneath the arching blue.
Let others pine for heavens fair,
YVith gates of gleaming pearls-
Our heaven is the lips and eyes
Of gay Panola girls.
So brim your bowls and drain them down
To beauty, lore and worth!
A pledge to Ole Panola, lads,
The dearest spot on earth!

Messages from the junior Prom
, M i
Dear J o, I always shall regret
Your foot was sore, but don't you fret-
For now that we are out of debt
We'll have one more, you can just bet.
And when we do, you must come, too,
For you must come to draw a few
Of these 'twadsl' out to dance with you.
Else we,ll go broke, and that won't do.
The dance was great, the music swell-
Samanthy Ann was the belle.
How many stags, no one could tell:
Collections were as good as h-.
For our motto is something rash-
'4In God we trust, others pay cash?
So to the bank did I then dash
To place my cash for next montlfs hash.
Sure am sorry you were not here,
For the dance was perfectly dear.
But we'll have more now, don't you
So hush that noise, dry up that tear.
But the best part of it was this:
fAnd here's the source of all our bliss,
Not a single man did we miss
Save one old boy, who brought his 'tSis
Roses are red, and violets blue,
The dance was ginger thru and thru,
With lots of girls, a stag or two C Fj
Or what the t'Prom', would call a t'Few
But be all that just as it may,
All that I have got to say
Is: t'Now I have no debts to pay,
With some cash for a future dayf,
On the morning after the night before
I hereby swear to dance no more.
lVIy head does ache iny feet are sore-
I can hardly drag them o,er the floor.
But when I stop and think again
How long my bank book would have been, I
I grit and bear it with a grin,
For "Honest labor is no sinf'

Hislory of the Chickasaw County Club
In 1832 the United States Government made a treaty with
the Chickasaws, by which the Chickasaws agreed to give up their
1'emaining lands east of the Mississippi River, o11 the llississippi
soil. In addition to the money given them in the treaty, they
were given a tract of land in the Indian Territory, west of the
Mississippi River. So they soon began migrating to the VVest,
and by 18-L0 nearly all of them had left the State of llissis-
sippi: however, there were a few who thought it too bad to give
up and leave their native soil.
The Chickasaws were, as tradition has it, that one Dr. F. L.
Riley wrote in the far past, notorious thieves. This seems to be
true, for one of those remaining was known to be guilty of
stealing the daughter of a 'tpale-face," and several others were
guilty of similar attempts.
This small hand of remaining Chickasaws began roving
from place to place, procuring food in various ways, until finally,
about 1909, the advance scouts of this small band were brought
to a halt hy shrill, savage yells: these yells of HFRESHMAN!
FR1'1SHMAN!" filled them with joy, for they thought that it
was "l"renchman! Frenchman l" a war-whoop that they hadn,t
heard for over a hundred yea1's. They were so pleased at the
thought of again seeing their old savage friends that they began
whooping and yelling, and yelling and whooping, after they had
whooped and danced for some time they saw four or five hundred
'tpale-face dudes" come rushing out of a great big brick build-
ing. All of this caused the small band of roving t'CHICKS', to
whoop louder and dance higher. After a few moments an old-
like man drew the attention of the smaller band of savages by
screaming out HSCHICKAMA! SCHICKAM,-Xl SCHICKARIA
YANTLYV' At the sound of these sweet words the Chicks
were so delighted that they ceased whooping and ran to
greet the old chief fas they thoughtl. He gave them signal
to follow him, which they did. VVhen they had gone only
a few steps they could readily see that he was not quite
a full-bloodg however they followed him to a big build-
ing called 6'Chapel" by the pale-faces, and after some dis-
cussion a treaty was agreed upon. This old-like man gave
them to understand that this was the University of lNIis-
sissippi, and that he was the Chancellor. He further explained
that this was an asylum for the savages of the State, and that
it was his duty to Qsemil civilizc them, if possible. He then
told them that they would have to go with him to his office, where
they must sign the treaty. When they were once all in the
office he told them that they must further agree to put on citizens'
clothes and give up all their wampum-this was agreed to, and
all were satisfied. After remaining at the University for some
"Co-eds--a place for misplaced confidences.

A Day in the Piney W oods
N BOARD the Dixie Flyer, which is due to arrive at
Sanford, Ala., at seven-thirty p.m. I found myself,
July 21, l90-, on my way to fill out an unexpired
term of the public school at Sanford. I was called to this work
in an emergency, and found myself glad to use my holidays in
some way to help pay the heavy expenses of a college education.
I secretly felt, too, that the world would be much richer if I only
had a chance to impart to its youth some of my wisdom, for I
had just finished my Sophomore year at college. I had been on
the train for six long hours and knew that I was soon to reach
my destination. I grew a bit nervous as I neared the town
where I was to take up the responsibilities of teacher. I had
spent most of my time on the train dreaming of my new field
of endeavor. I formed a mental picture of the town of Sanford
and peopled it with imaginary inhabitants. I speculated much
over the character of the trustee to whom I had written and
who had been described to me as a big, fat, red-headed, good-
natured Irishman. Vertainly I will get a fair reception, thought
I. inasmuch as I am to be a real school teacher, and I felt a
thrill of conscious pride and greatness at the thought. It was
almost seven-thirty when I looked at my watch, and I began
to prepare my baggage to leave the train. I had never seen
so many stations, and at every stop the little negro porter,
whose face, by contrast, made his porter's cap look a silvery
gray. would open the door of the car and in a great drift of
smoke and cinders would yell out the names of the stations so
that no one could understand him. This process was kept up
until I was sure that we had passed Sanford. It was now much
past the time for the train to arrive at my destination. I was
sure, though that I had not heard a word from the porter out
of which I could imagine the name Sanford. I resolved to ask
a train official about my situation and proceeded toward the
door for this purpose, but as I approached the door it flew
open and I was this time enveloped with smoke. The familiar
face of the porter appeared and that familiar voice rang out,
"S-a-n-f-o-r-d, Sanford, don't fergit yer bundles and pasolsf'
I scrambled to my seat where I had left my suitcase, and with it
I almost threw myself out of the car. I saw at once that no
great demonstration would be made in my honor. Everywhere it
was dark, save for the light from the lanterns of the train crew,
and, when the train pulled out and rounded the curve, I was
left all alone in the dark. My disappointment was unspeakable
and almost unbearable. It would hardly be appropriate to tell
what I thought. I was ready for anything but to be completely
ignored. It would be impossible to describe the apprehension of
that one moment. I was defeated. I must devise some plan of
procedure, thought I, and, glancing around I saw a man walk-
ing rapidly away with a lantern in one hand and a large bag
in the other. It is the mail bag, of C0lll'SC, thought I, and I
remembered that the trustee was the postmaster of that town.
So off I went after him and followed him into a long, narrow
building which proved to be a large supply store for the big
mill near by. When I reached the door the postmaster had gone
behind a short partition, which set the P. 0. apart, and was busily
distributing the mail int.o the proper pigeonholes. I will not
disturb him, thought I, but. will wait until he has finished dis-
tributing the mail. VVhile I waited, however, a small man came
into the store, eyed me somewhat curiously, and proceeded to
light three large hanging oil lamps, which gave excellent light
for a country store. Now, it was the custom in this town to do
trading at night and soon the workmen were coming in from
the quarters about the mill to make their purchases of tobacco
and other necessaries of the kind and to ask for their evening
mail. But this was not all they came for, evidently, for there
were several who seemed to have no other purpose than to take
part in the evening story-telling, and to contest for the most
coveted prize or honor in the power of the citizenship of that
town to give-a kind of grand mogul of all cussers. I was
scarcely noticed as I sat on my suitcase against the wall, and I
had a fine chance to hear the easy, undisturbed flow of pro-
fanity, that peculiar type known only to the man of the logging
camp. Every man seemed to be a past master in the art, for they
could roll the most unique expressions of profanity under their
tongues, profanity of the blue-blazes variety and seem to enjoy
it as thoroughly as a musician enjoys the grand opera. I had
been to college and had heard college men swear to sufficiently
impress their mates with their masculinity, but I had always
felt that these men were secretly ashamed of every oath they
uttered. But here I was among big, rough, muscular men to
whom it was a matter of great pride that they could utter every
thought in the vocabulary of the camp. At least it so appeared
to me that night. It is mild to say that I was shocked, for I
was really frightened. If these men could delight in such con-
versation, certainly they would hold very lightly such an in-
significant thing as human life. The topic of conversation, if
I may dignif y it by that term, was the shooting match that was
to occur the next day. livery Saturday, it seemed. the whole
neighborhood gathered in the town to raffle off some animal.
and the next day the prize was to be a favorite hull. The only
preparation necessary to become a contestant in the game was
to bring along an old shotgun and an abundance of Spiritus
Fermentae. The latter was had in abundance that night. As
I sat and almost prayed for some Providence to take me out
of that horrible place, a loud, heavy voice was heard on the out-
side and everybody was quiet for a moment. I was quickly con-
vinced that the Grand Blogul had arrived, for the crowd re-
ceived him with great respect. VVhen he entered the store a
glance at his rough face and a little attention to the ease with
which he handled the language of the camp quickly convinced
me that he was entitled to the honor he had. Everybody called
him Calip. Just as Calip came in, a big, round, smiling face
and a head crowned with a lock of rich red hair, emerged from
behing the postoffice partition. ul-Iullo, fatty: is that you?"
roared Calip. "I'm the feller you want,', replied the fat man,
with his big, round, red face beaming with good nature. 'Illlis
face sent courage into my heart for a moment, and with great
resolution I rushed up to the old fellow and extending my hand,
said: 6'This is hlr. Ivoodham, I presume." The old Irishman
put out his big, rough hand and looked at me with a smile that
easily grew into a jolly laugh that shook his big frame and said:
"Young fellow, I suppose I'm the very feller you are after.
Vvhat can I do fer you?', Everyone in the room silently stared
at me, and, as I thought, with some suspicion. I was su1'e that
I wanted nothing of the ruffians to whom I had been listening,
and I was equally sure that I needed help from Mr. Ivoodhamz
so I managed to say to him that I had written to him a few days
before regvirding the school at that place. "Oh, yesf, Vvoodham
wc-ni on, "you are the feller that is to finish out our little schoolf'
and then in a most hospitable way, said: 'tVVcll, young man,
we are powerful glad to see yer. I suppose, though, you will
have a purty tough time, seein' as you ain't ntver done nothin,
lv' go to school. Likely as not you will find it purty tough
hvzng with us country folks. Ive don't have no style about us
lunch, and you may git sorter lonsome in them fine breeches with
cuffs all on 'em. But I 'spose you will ketch on to things right
along, since you are a purty likely looking chap. You will find
us a little tough, but it,s mighty hard to be decent and drive a
log team, ain,t it, t'alip?" Valip left no shadow of doubt in my
nzind that Mr. IVoodham was correct. 4'But,,, turning to me
again, SGI guess I,ll have to ask your name." "Thompson is my
name, I quickly replied." "IVell,,, he continued, "ML Thomp-
son, I guess you will he looking fer a place to put your feet
under the table, won't yer?',
MA little supper would not be badf' I hastened to say, for
I had been on the train all the afternoon.
'tVVell,,' he went on, "you jest wait here a minit while I
send up to old Baile-y's and tell him to come andygit yer Satchel.
Old Bailey takes boarders, and guess l:e can put you up some-
VVhile I waited for old Bailey, I had a good chance to study
the cliax-act-er of this big Irishman. In connection with his
duties as postmaster he acted as clerk in the store or vica versa.
The evening shopping, as I have said, was quite a habit. A
small boy rushed in and said: "Mi: Ivoodham, I want a bar of
soap." "All right," AIP. Vvoodham said, Where is a har I've
bought 'specially for you," and handed the bar to the boy. A
negro came in next, and said: "Mix Woodliam, I want a pair
of shoes." "All right," said Mr. Woodham, "here is a pair I,ve
been a savin' for you a whole monthg I knew you would want
,em." One of the boys walked in and said: 'eHow are you, lllr.
VVoodham?" udust the finest you ever sawf, came the answer.
"Pm so fat I can't hardly walk." And in this manner his good
nature was bubbling over continuously. VVho could help liking
this old fellow, thought I.
Old Bailey stepped in shortly, and, after proper introduc-
tions, he was off for the boarding house with my suitcase in his
hand and with me as a companion. I soon found myself seated
at a little greasy table, with a large dish of speckled peas, a fat
piece of pork, a pone of corn bread and a glass of buttermilk
before me for my supper. I managed to eat enough of this
supper to check my hunger and then went to my sleeping room.
I had left my home wrapped in the dignity of my important
position and fully impressed with the magnitude and the majesty
of my intellect. But when I reached my room that night I was
not as proud of myself as I expected those at home to be. I had
met with real life, where the peculiar style of hat or tie, or the
crease of my trousers made no difference. In the midst of my
surging thoughts I pulled a chair up to my bed and climbed
over into it and almost buried myself in a pile of feathers. The
strain ef the day had worn upon me so that I was soon fast
asleep. VVhcn I awoke the next morning the rays of the sun were
streaming through my little window, and in my mind I found
nothing but vain regrets. At first I hardly knew where I was,
and looked about my room to assure myself that it was not all
a bad dream. I could hear the hum of the machinery at the
big mill and I could hear the puffing of the log train. While I
1 l xv- 7 1 l ':
lay, day dreaming, and reflecting on my experiences of the pre-
vious night, the Dixie Flyer passed by on its way back to civili-
zation. I almost fell out of bed to see the train as it pulled out
of the little station, and then I settled back in a chair almost
in despair. I must wait in this lonely place, thought I. till
Monday morning before I can do anything to occupy my
thoughts. I slowly dressed and went out on the little po1'ch of
the house to prepare myself for breakfast. It was a breakfast
of which I could cat very heartily. The coffee was very good.
provided one did not disturb the great quantity of sediment in
the bottom of the cup. After breakfast I decided to see the
town. A visit to the saw mill was of great interest and made
me feel my lack of importance very keenly. I saw huge logs
made into lumber in the twinkling of an eye. I was fascinated
with the lnachinery and I was strangely interested in the busy
workmen as they hur1'ied about their duties. A visit to the
turpentine stills proved a revelation to me. and I lingered there
till the noon hour when I knew I must go home to dinner. I
came by way of the store where I saw crowds already gathered
and crowds still coming to take part in the shooting match. I
lingered for a while on the porch of the store to watch the
crowds gather and to listen to the ridiculous conversations.
IVhile I stood there an important looking individual walked up
and introduced himself to me. He was a school teacher in a
neighboring village. Of course, I was glad to see him, and
while we talked interestedly, we did not notice particularly who
came and went. But when my friend, lIr. Ivoodham, walked
briskly out of the store, followed by- an emaciated looking indi-
vidual, I naturally looked up. It seems that this little man had
accused Mr. VVoodham of appropriating public funds to pri-
vate purposes. But one never knows when a big. good-uatured
Irislnnan is mad. He usually has his passion over and the re-
mains of some poor chap scattered about promiscuously before
one knows what is really going on. So we two heroes of the
schoolroom hardly got our bearing before down came my little
friend with the Irislunan on top. There followed a mighty
struggle on the part of the little fellow for bis knife, but just as
he had prepared it for use the big man took it from him and
threw it far out of reach. Much quicker than the telling.
the little man was thoroughly tlu'ashed and IYoodham was back
in the sto1'e washing his hands and smiling his unfailiug smile.
I looked around and saw my school teacher friend about two
lmndred yards down the railroad track. He evidently knew the
nature of such difficulties better than I and was taking proper
precautions. Friends on either side hastily gathered and began
to discuss the fight in a rather heated manner. I saw some with
shotguns. some with pistols and others with knives. all brandish-
ing their weapons and promising to all interested parties a grand
carving tournament. I found convenient business in the back
part of the store. As I went back into the store. Mr. IVoodham
looked up at me and with a broad smile and a wink of the eye.
said: "Thompson, I've been up against it." and started to
explain tbecause of the trouble. but just at that time I heard a
loud voice on the outside. A robust logman. carrying about 190
pounds of bones and nmscle was coming toward the store. swear-
ing and brandishing his knife, andvcballenging the man who
would beat up a small man. assuring the crowd that he could
whip any man in Covington county, even if he weighed 500
pounds. The Irish blood in IVoodham could not take a chal-
lenge like that. He was mad for the first time that day. Ilis

face changed quickly into many colors as he reached into the
drawer of his desk and pulled out a .4-L Colt pistol and walked
toward the door. I was not the only one to see that there was
danger now, if I was the only one to rush out of the store and
on to the top of the hill out of range of any stray lead, hungry
for a victim. A number of friends gathered about lvoodham just
before he reached the door and forced him to give up his gun.
They knew that one shot would precipitate a battle, and they
knew, too, that lYoodham would shoot at the sight of his new
antagonist. After disarming the two champions, a hurried
consultation was held among the friends of either contestant,
and a fair, fist-and-skull fight was decided upon to settle the
difficulty. Everything was cleared for the fray. I now ven-
tured closer to the scene, for I saw no danger from flying
bullets, and I trusted to my legs to take me away from any
other danger that might arise. I had drawn pretty close when
the two men went together, magnificent specimens of physical
manhood they were. The only handicap to Ivoodham was his
surplus flesh and the only handicap to his antagonist was his
appetite. I was too nervous to remember anything very definite
about the fight, but I shall always carry a recollection of the
general impression. There was a gene1'al slashing right and
left for some time, but this was done in a very awkward manner.
The spectators were perfectly quiet, each biting his tongue or
uttering a subdued oath as his favorite was served an uncom-
fortable blow. The fighters went together and then began a
swaying back and forth that kept me in great doubt v liich would
fall on top when the collapse came. lly sympathies were nat-
urally with Ivoodham, and I found myself swaying back and
forth with the fighters, unconsciously trying to see to it that
Yvoodham landed on top. A complete wall was built up about
the contestants by the grouping of the spectators, so when the
C'l'2lSll came I could not see what the f0l'tllllC of my friend was.
I heard the pounding and the blowing, reminding me more of a
boar fight than anything I can now recall. I was relieved when
I heard one of the nearer spectators cry out, NGO fer him,
IVoodham." I knew my friend was on top and was getting the
better of the fight. In his attempt to tear the mouth of his
enemy, Ivoodham slipped his finger between the other's teeth,
and the other proceeded to use them for their full worth. Soon,
though, between the pounding in the face and the choking
blood that was now streaming down his throat, he was forced
to give the cry of defeat.
The crowd quickly dispersed, satisfied, and Calip, the de-
feated, went back to his team that had waited for him on the
hill. A half hour later I sat on a log in front of the store and
Ivoodham sat by my side. The unfailing smile was again on his
face and .jolly laughter shook his large frame, and he looked at
me with a good-natured nod of the head and said: f'Old feller,
it's warm times fer you, ain't it? I told my wife this morning
that I'd get me a man before night." '
I have always had great respect for that old Irislnnan, but
that was the last day for me in the piney woods.
