B.L., North Texas College; Graduate Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, under Theodore Bohlmann INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC TURNER RICE State Normal College TREASURER DORMITORY FOR WOMEN Seniors " Julia " JULIA AUSTIN FLORENCE, ALA. " Her air, her smile, her motions tell Of womanly completeness; A music as of household songs Is in her voice of sweetness. " This is a splendid student, especially in French and Chem- istry. She ranks as an all A pupil, hut we believe that some of that was gained through her smile and manner. BROWNING ' Mr. Hudson " ROBERT HUDSON ROGERSVILLE, ALA. " Who trusts to woman his peace of mind. Trusts a frail bark that may sink any time. " This is one of our married members, although you would not suspect it by his jovial manner. Me lias taught several years, and we predict that he shall be heard from in after years, if his wife doesn ' t turn suffragette. DIALECTICAL ' Mary " MARY LIPSCOMB FLORENCE, ALA. " A modest maid is she. " The class in choosing a historian could not have found a better one than this girl, who has watched the various members through the four years. She is hard of hearing when Mr. Wood calls on her in chemistry. Her German book is the reason. She is a quiet girl, and we expect to see her make a success- ful teacher. BROWNING GEORGE DUDLEY FLORENCE, ALA. " George, " " Dud, " " Emo " " Thus in the faculty ' s sight, this boy grew up. " This is a home product. George stands five feet fifteen inches in his stocking feet. It is hard to say whether he exists alone or is a lengthened shadow of Prof. Wood. If he escapes the side show as the tall man you may expect to see an account of him on the Who ' s Who and Why page of the Saturday Evening Pott, Varsity football, 1912. LAFAYETTE % AUXFORD SARTAIN " Ox " OAKMAN, ALA. " An harmless flaming meteor shown for hair, And fell adown his shoulders with loose care. " Words fail. The fountain pen ceases its wanton flow! Friends gaze on this likeness, for this is Sartain, Sartain. the mathematician, the rhetorician, and known far and wide for brilliant remarks, which flow, we suppose, from a brilliant head. Only one of his kind now in captivity, so, my friend, gaze. DIALECTICAL ' Jay Bird ' 1 WILLIAM J. BAIRD ETHKLVILLK, ALA. ' A little engine of high power, A locomotive in trousers. " Four years ago liaird decided to quit the railroad and cast lis fortunes with the S. N. C. The interests of the institution have always been first in his regards, and we are sure he will reach the goal for which he strives. Can be recognized any- where by the toothpick in bis mouth and pencil behind his ear. DIALECTICAL JOHN DARBY, JR. FLORENCE, ALA. " The wish which ages have not yet subdued In man to have no master save ins mood. " John was not in school last year, but taught, and went to the University during the summer. He is fond of society work, and is one of the declaimers for the Dialectical Society. His natural bent is toward mathematics, and future years may see him I ' rcfessor of Mathematics in some great university. DIALECTICAL MAMIE PULLEN SHEFFIELD, ALA. ' Mamie " " She speaks, behaves and acts just as she ought. " Mamie is very quiet, and is always in a good humor. She is one of the best model school teachers, but it has been hinted that she has other views for life than that of teaching. She never grumbles nor gets fretted, except when drawing day comes, and then she and Mr. Nisbet have a comedy of their own. DIXIE " Blanche " BLANCHE EVANS FLORENCE, ALA. " Of disposition gentle and fair. " Blanche lets people find what she knows without talking much. She is good in English, and it is not possible to say whether she will write novels or make chemistry experiments. BROWNING ELIZABETH LOWMAN SHEFFIELD, ALA. " Liz " " Who will remember the skies are gray If she carries a happy heart all day? " Elizabeth comes from the Judson, and has all the qualities to become a great teacher. During the first term she learned to be an expert in dodging Miss Burt, but later became her very shadow. Has been greatly interested in chapel exercises, and held the position of conductor for the clas in clapping, under the direction of Prof. Wood ' s smile. " Joe " JOSIAH BETHEA GAME, JR. FLORENCE, ALA. " I would not be king. Enough of woe it is to love. " Joe has been to school in almost every village, town or city in the U. S., but it looks as though one of the Florence girls has stopped his roving. lie starred this year in football, but had the misfortune of getting injured. He has a talent for fooling with the janitor ' s call bell, and future time may see him an employee of a great electric company as fireman on a street car. DIALECTICAL MATTIE AVERY SHEFFIELO, ALA. " Mattie " Know smiles; When s laugh. " smile and the world smiles with you. " n all over College for her bright disposition and merry even when teased she takes it in the same old way. he leaves, the walls will miss the echo of her happy BROWNING ! . UN t or " Jepp " JEPPIE S. BRAXYAX KENNEDY, ALA. " I ' ll sneak in a monstrous small voice. " Jeppie, Edgar ' s brother, has the responsibility of bearing the shining light of his class upon his shoulders. This, although he is one of the smartest in his class, does not affect his good disposition; and his popularity caused him to be elected President of the Red-Headed Club. He intends to be a " Doc, " and we hope he may settle where we are the undertaker. DIALECTICAL Bill " WILLIE MAE LEATHERWOOD FLORENCE, ALA. " Then she will talk, My stars, how she will talk. " Willie Mae is popular with her classmates. Nobody can for- get her presence, and in her tongue is found the nearest thing to perpetual motion that has yet been discovered by the scientists. She had decided views on physics last year, and is not known but that she will go into scientific research. Miss Miller " EVELYN MILLER FLORENCE, ALA. ' Woman is the lesser man. ' The honor girl of the class! Won the U. 1 . C. Medal, and makes A in eveiything. She is a strong " Hull Moose, " and thinks it strange that all do not see that Roosevelt is the man. Has all the qualities to make a leading suffragette in the com- ing years. BROWNING MAGGIE CARNATHAN BUTLER, ALA. " Miss Carnation, " " Carrie Nation " " In helping others she took swift command. Her brain was keen and kindly was her hand. " She has only been at the State Normal for a year, but has proved a worthy member of our happy band. She bones all the time, but is ever willing and glad to lend a helping hand. BROWNING " Kat " KATHLEEN VAUGHN FLORENCE, ALA. ' Love goes toward Love, as schoolboys from their books; But Love from Love, toward school with heavy looks. " " Kat " is known for her love of mirth and sunny disposition. Some have suggested her as the queen of all mischief makers. She has great tact in controlling the pupils of the model school, and would make a great teacher if her mind did not seem to run in other channels. BROWNING ' Dowdy " FLOYD DOWDY FLORENCE, ALA. " -Being season ' d with a gracious voice, Your dainty speakers have the curse, To make their opponents look the worse. " Dowdy has that quality of character that makes great men, that of stickability. He is a good worker and especially shines in teachers ' meetings. He likes fun, and his chief delight is making motions in society. If he escapes being a preacher, we predict you will hear from him as a stump speaker for stock law. DIALECTICAL GARLAND SMITH COVINj ALA. " Daddy " " And next he smiled the love of wedded souls. " This is one of the members of our illustrious class that has heard and answered Hymen ' s call. Nevertheless, his home du- ties have allowed him to take a lively interest in college life. He holds with dignity the office of President of the class, and has manfully shouldered the trials of the class. President of V. M. C. A. ; President of the Senior Class. DIALECTICAL ROBERT COBB CHEROKEE, ALA. " Ty Cobb " " A lion among ladies is a dangerous thing. " Behold in Cobb our dignified, hard-working editor! Neverthe- less when the umpire says, " Play ball, " he steps from his pedestal. He has made a record for himself, a record almost equal to that of the famous Ty. He is decidedly the " Beau Brummel " of the class, and has caused many hearts to palpitate and eyes to dilate. Varsity baseball, 4 years; varsity football, 3 years; manager baseball in 1912; manager football in 1912; captain baseball 19 13. LAFAYETTE ; ' SalIy " SALLYE FRANCES BROWN FLORKNCE, ALA. " Dux femina factum. " Sally, having been raised under the walls of the S. N. C, never fails to express herself on any subject. She is leader of the suffragette party in College, and her voice may be heard in Congress before many years. BROWNING ' Ruth " RUTH BROWN FLORENCE, ALA. " Though you unjustly scorn, I cannot change, as others do. ' Although she talks but little .what she says is stated very emphatically, and there is no mistake but that she means it. We fear that the teaching profession will not get the benefit of her talent, for she had rather do other things. BROWNING BELLE HUGER ANNISTON, ALA. " Country Jay " " They who have light in themselves will not revolve as satellites. " " Hugger " is here to learn what she can while not playing tennis. She ' s cute, sweet, smart, and most excitingly original in everything she does. We expect great things from her. DIXIE to EDGAR W. BRAN Y AN KENNEDY, ALA. " Edgar " " Silence is ever the best policy. " Edgar is one of the quietest and most studious boys of the College. He hails from the Junior Class of 191 1, having taught last year. He especially shines in English and in helping Miss Huger in Manual Training. It is reported that he said three words to her in succession. He is destined to make a great teacher. DIALECTICAL " Hat " HATTIE GRIMES SHEFFIELD, ALA. " Still and quiet, but deeper than you think. " Hattie has drunk from this stream of knowledge for four years. She is mastering several languages, and has a vision of the school room. We expect to see her principal of some girls boarding school. BROWNING THOMAS A. SNOW PALOS, ALA. " Tom " " His tongue could make the worse appear the better reason. " Tom takes a great delight in society and athletics. He was a member of the football team, basketball team, and also coach of the girls ' basketball team. He intends to be a doctor, and be- ing a good mixer we hope he will be a better mixer of medi- cine in the future. DIALECTICAL Allie " ALPHA McCLOUD WALL JASPER, ALA. " She will outstrip all praise, And make it halt behind her. " In her stay of .one year Allie has made many friends, and has kept pace in her studies with many of the members of last year. She is an excellent student, and always has good lessons. She is training to be a primary teacher, and it will not be many years before she will be heard from in school work. BROWNING XORA CATER UNION SPRINGS, ALA. " Nora, " " Fritzy " " Thy modesty ' s a candle to thy merit. " Quiet and retiring, Nora has gone through College making many friends. She shines on the tennis court, and is often seen there even early in the morning. Is a part of the famous trio, Cater, Wall, and Vaughan. BROWNING .. i gM MISS RUTH HEATHERLY FLORENCE, ALA. " Miss lleatherly " " Conspicuous by her absence. " Miss lleatherly is especially strong in rhetoric and teaching. Her chief greatness lies in her amiable disposition and willing- ness to try, forming a fine record for her four years of col lege career. MR. ANDREW DARBY WOODLAND, ALA. " Brother Andrew " " While his feet walks the earth his mind soars among the stars. " Mr. Darby is taking a professional course, and hence is already very distinguished, having taught throughout the state. Formerly he starred as an orator, debater, and football player. He is an orator yet, but is now married. A bright future awaits him. DIALECTICAL MR. G. C. ARANT " The Captain " " Tnat kind of brains got by work has for him no attraction; He prefers a bed of rose leaves, and hates the name of action. " Mr. Arant, although good looking and well read, has been known to study some. He hails from Jacksonville and Auburn. He shines in mathematics, French, English; is a wonderful writer and thinker. Humor being essential to his existence, he is veil adapted to composing stump speeches. DIALECTICAL HELEN WHITE OKLAHOMA Helen " " Such was this (laughter of Western Land, Herself a power with her hand. " Helen came to us from Oklahoma and entered the Senior Class last fall. She has won the esteem of a host of friends, and has been a powerful factor in the Senior Class. She is an artist of talent, and was elected Art Editor of the " Purple and Cold. " LUCIEN JONES FLORENCE, ALA. " Doc " " Oh, it is excellent to have a giant ' s strength. " Doc Jones has been around here the full course, and has served his time in almost all the different departments of ath- letics. He is now president of the Association. Farewell, Doc, we are sorry that we will never again hear your melodious voice telling us what the athletic outlook is. Varsity football, two years; Varsity baseball, two years. DIALECTICAL HIRAM K. DOUGLAS FLORENCE, ALA. " Miss Hiram " " He was a veray parfit gentil Knight. " Hera is one of the best liked and brightest boys of the Col- lege. He has a special talent for reporting on the pin commit- tee at Senior meeting. He is very much interested in the wel- fare of others, and is an active member of the Y. M. C. A., of which he is Secretary. LAFAYETTE " Hodges " BUNYAN HODGES WOODVJLLE, ALA. " He knew what ' s what, And that ' s as high As metaphysic wit can fly. " Hodges conies to us from Jacksonville, where he made a hit as baseball player, and is showing up good here. He is a good student, a profound thinker, and jolly good fellow. He was chosen to represent the Dialecticals in the annual debate, and no one in society can beat him saying, " Mr. President. " DIALECTICAL " Yelma " VELMA WOODARD FLORENCE, ALA. " A beau! A beau! My lessons for a beau! " Miss Woodard is a combination of all the elements of popu- larity. She is class poet and a faithful society worker, having benefited it several times by her financial schemes. She has, it is reported, a rare and manifold collection of Cupid ' s darts. BROWNING It ilk on ' limmie JAMES McEACHERN LOUISVILLE, ALA. ' lie never flunked, he never lied, I reckon he never knowed how. " Jimmie would make a good Sunday school superintendent if he did not love the shady banks of Cypress Creek so much. We know Miss Knight regrets the loss of this Caruso, and hopes to be recompensed by some day hearing this talented soloist at the Metropolitan Theatre in New York. DIALECTICAL " The Orator ' L. L. JAMES RUSSELVILLE, ALA. " He came, he saw, he left. ' Mr. James is industrious and honored. He is class orator and annual debater. He is especially noted as a society -leader and as a lover. If his good looks doesn ' t get control, a bright future awaits him at the bar, a position to winch he aspires. LAFAYETTE ROSE EDITH MACKAY ANNISTON, ALA. " Rose Esther " " She blushes. Ah! she blushes like a summer rose. " Here we have one of the future educators of the country. Famous for her ideas on pedagogical subjects and the ease with w liich she blushes. Just a little more experience is all that is needed to make her one of the shining I mean blushing lights of the times. BROWN INC " Ross " ROSS O. SHAVF.R FLORENCE, ALA. " If well respected honor bid me on, I hold as little counsel with weak fear as you. " Ross comes to us from Michigan, and became a full-fledged S. N. C. man at once. He takes a great interest in everything from being " A Bull Mooser " to a member of the track team. He was a representative to the V. M. C. A. Conference last year, and takes great interest in its workings. He luces Latin, and we can see him occupying a Latin chair now. LAFAYETTE ' ISaby Wayne " WAYNE MORRIS FLORENCE, ALA. " Tall, gentle, and fair of form, The sweetest that e ' er was born. " Wayne seems to have chosen for her motto, " All smiles and no frowns. " She is well liked, and is always ready to help anyone. She has a special knack in reaching children, and we predict that in a few years she will be one of the greatest of primary teachers. DIXIE WILLIAM SEALE WOODVILLE, TEX. ' Runt, " " Ilillie " " And still the wonder grew, That one small head could carry all he knew. " Iiillie must return for a postgraduate course, for what will the girls do without him? He is seldom seen, because the girls are so thick around him. He has made a good record in col- lege, has earned a reputation as a cartoonist, a Sherlock Holmes, a singer, and a starter for something doing when " times is dull. " LAFAYETTE " Jo " JOSEPHINE RANSON FLORENCE, ALA. ' Her frowns are fairer far Than the smiles of other maidens are. ' We are glad that jo has stayed with us throughout the year, for we feared the sudden appearance of a large diamond would cause us the loss of a valuable member. She has caused many a gallant knight to lose his heart, and is a faithful member t ' f the " buzzers. " BROWNING AMIS MADRY FLORENCE, ALA. " Madry " " Spring fever entered in his bones and lingered all the year. ' This is Mr. Nisbet ' s special pet of the senior class. Never known to study except when lumber was out or the Manual Training room was closed! Never mind, Madry, you ' ll learn some day to be a model little boy. History of the Senior Class w E can hardly realize that the history of the class of 191 3 has been made and settled forever. Nine months ago we started on onr career as Seniors. There was not a heart but swelled and thrilled with the realization of its new elevation and importance. Even Mr. Seale (com- monly known as " Billie " ) has not lacked in dignity, for, although he is not quite so tall as the average, he has felt every inch of the height willed him by the class of last year. We have two members in our class, both young men of great worth, who, though they would hardly confess to have ever been less than a Senior, have risen by slow strides from the first grade of the Model School to their present seat of dignity ; and years hence, when their hair begins to turn gray from the toils of life, their dearest memories will hover around the same little Model School. : 1 We are especially honored in having as a member of our class a young lady who has made herself famous as a detective. We all remember how successfully Miss Wayne Morris won this name by capturing the only Outlaw in school in her Ereshman year. School had rocked on until near the middle of the session when the Seniors ' feeling of dignity was changed to one of special privileges. Once during the morning exercises a buzz was heard in the rear of the chapel which sounded very much like the hum of a gear wheel in a sawmill and that was what Dr. Powers called it. Every eye in chapel was turned toward us. For three whole days every way we turned, " Buzz-saw Seniors " was thrown in our faces. But Dr. Game came to our rescue a few days later. He again held us up as the model for the school, and now even Dr. Powers will say that we have gained our former station. Dr. Game has decided that he had better be careful how he advises young people who do not enjoy teaching to " go marry, " as his doing so has caused us to lose a member of our class. We are very proud of the fact that we have broken the record of the previous classes and have successfully gotten out an Annual. We hope the future classes will follow our example and improve upon it. Mary Lipscomb. THE END. Senior Class Oration BY L. L. JAMES. ANOTHER race has been run; we who have labored ihe iast few years within the walls of our Alma Mater will in a few days be standing upon the threshold of a new career. The trials and the hardships of our school days have all been forgotten, and there remains but the recollections of the pleasures and the happiness. My dear classmates, we, who should be the truest men and women under the sun-kissed skies of Alabama, should go forth clad in the livery of our Alma Mater and armed with the knowledge she has been able to give us. We must receive the challenge of the world in a new day. The struggles that have been ours in the school-room have, in a small measure, tested our skill and our armor for meeting and combating the obstacles and trials which shall confront us in future life. But without a steady heart and sinews of iron and a fixed and determined purpose, can we ever expect to return the proud victor from the combat with the world of today ? The challenge is not borne to us by ringing peals from warlike bugles, nor by stirring blasts from brazen trumpets, yet the gods themselves with all the powers of the universe at their command could not challenge us in a language more forcible than the challenge of the world to train men and women. We, in our brightest day dreams, have built magnificent castles, accomplished great things, and been crowned by fame with the richest laurels of success. But now the day is almost upon us when we must cross over into the lands of tomorrow, and begin the fight in reality for those things of which we have dreamed. Upon the border of school days and after life the questions must come to each of us, " What am I going to do with my life, and of what use am I going to be to my fellow man? " Not all of us can hope to be kings and queens, nor the favorites of fame and fortune; but all of us can be far greater than all of these, if we but serve well the state, the country, and the God to whom we owe so much. Success is not measured by the glittering heraldry of pomp and display, nor in the idle praises of our fellow-being. But it is rather . measured in the good we may be able to do in whatever line of work fate may see fit to place us. The greatest success will be the life of the man who climbs the rugged ladder of fame with his hands and his brow crimson with the stains of his own life-blood, shed in the service of his fellow man, his country and his God. The foundation of success is character, and by the service we render time and humanity we make our reputation. Let us, if we wish to prosper, serve well ihe imperial land of the South, that her glory may be kept untarnished by our lives, and that in and through us she may become greater than her far-famed glory of today. At last we have come to the parting of the ways. We all agree that the years we have spent here have passed too quickly. Xo doubt, it is a sad thought to all of us to think that we are to say our last good-byes to our classmates, school friends, and last, but not least, to our beloved teachers. The memories that have made our school days dear we may keep until we have crossed the bar, but the work that this College expects us to do demands that we do not idly bask in peace and ease, but be Up at the work the world would have us do. The call has gone out to all ends of the earth for men and women who have been trained both by the knowledge that they have gotten from college and from experience. The mighty undertakings of the age and the great strides which all the world is taking today calls for trained men. The work of the pyramids and the hanging gardens of l.abylon are no longer a wonder, but such engineering feats as the Panama Canal, which will bind the two highty oceans together and make all the world closer, or the aeroplane that sails through the air at a rapid rate, or the wireless telegraph messages that flash across our continent in a few seconds. From out the field of such work as this comes the call for men, men who have the ambition and the confidence to plan and to accomplish still greater things than all of these. We have long since crossed the Mississippi into what vas a new world to those who moved West in wagons before the Mexican War and the railroad broadened our dominion, and we are bounded East and West by the oceans. We are living in an enlightened age of the world, an age which accomplishes those great feats that were considered impossible by our fore- fathers, and, above all, an age in which we can see in the near future the blend- ing of all these wonderful forces in unison toward such marvelous strides of progress and civilization as make the myths of the past fade away. You and I are the promoters of this age. There is much work to do all over the world schools are to be taught, educational needs to be met, and a thousand and one problems greater than the world has ever known are to be solved. We are the men and women to accom- plish these wonderful feats. In every field we are needed. The farmer, by the knowledge he has gained, is able to make the old red hills of Alabama blossom into the richest of fruits and into waving fields of golden grain and snowy acres of the fleecy staple, King Cotton. By this same knowledge photography is bringing to us, as on parchment leaves painted in, sunlight, the secrets of the depth of the sea and sky; it is finding new stars, and with the telescope camera liknesses may be snatched across spaces im- penetrable by the naked eye. These men and women while doing these great things are in need of per- sons just fresh from college with a desire to accomplish greater achievements than their predecessors. Hundreds of thousands of suffering beings all over the world are calling for our help. Let us answer the call and do even greater things and kinder deeds than those who have gone before. From out the social and political world comes a call for farmers, teachers, ministers, lawyers, doctors, and the all-important housewife. Those who are filling these places today cannot hope to live always, for they, too, must answer the summons and go the way of all mankind, and upon our shoulders must fall the burdens of this nation. There is an abundance of work for us to do. Let us rise above all party strifes, contentions and worldly haughtiness, and with clean hands and pure hearts take the helm of our nation whenever our time shall come, and guide her across the seas, no matter what may befall her. Alabama is calling for- men and women, men and women who are willing to stand for everything that pertains to the uplift of fallen humanity. A mighty educational wave is beginning to sweep over our State for the purpose of elevat- ing the rising generation. Let us catch this wave at the flood tide and ride out on it to the work the world would have us to do. Time and demand are calling for us to come out and take hold of the vocations of life. Shall we answer this call and this challenge, and send back to the world our acceptance, and go forth to take our place in the great battle? The greatness of the obligation which we are under to the country, and even to this State which has given us such splen- did opportunities and such wonderful blessings of freedom and equality, and the call of our duty to that country demands that we answer the call and the challenge. The time has come for us to answer the last roll call and bid farewell to our Alma Mater. Today each old room and this chapel hall has something to remind us of the days that are forever gone. Today we will view all of these for the last time, and with our hearts too full for speech we turn and grasp the hands of our classmates and teachers, with tears unbidden springing down our cheeks, and take our journey out into the world. May the fates deal kindly with all of you, my dear classmates, and may the richest laurels of success crown your every effort toward answering the challenge and paying the debt you owe to your country, your mother, and your God. THE END. Class Prophecy WHEX I realized that commencement time was near and that the Alumni of the S. N. C. would soon be gathering beneath its ivy-covered walls, my spirit began to long for the privilege of seeing and hear- ing of those who had been in the graduation class of 1913. Time flies very rapidly in the land of spirits, and I could scarcely realize that ten years had passed since we, forty-three strong, went forth into the world to battle with its forces. As I thought of the past my longing grew intense. I seemed to be borne along on wings, so high in the air that T could not recognize the land. But soon I saw a great river, and across this river was a bridge of massive structure. This seemed strangely familiar, and especially so when I saw crossing it a street car crowded with young people. Suddenly I dropped almost even with this, and ihen I heard some one mention, " Wednesday plan, " " Dr. Powers, " and ' " Mr. Nisbet ; " and it flashed upon me that this must be the Tennessee River, and the people the Sheffield and Tuscumbia students going to school. How glad I was when I realized that I was near the dear old S. N. C. I flew on and sped up Court Street and on to the College. There I saw a beautiful building that was unfamiliar to me. As I came nearer I saw that it was. the new Administration Building of which we had dreamed. I entered the hall and saw a number of students loitering there. I soon found the office and went in. Things were arranged somewhat as they were in the old building, and I soon discovered Dr. Powers in his office. He did not recognize me at arst, but when I told him of the ' " buzzers, " he remembered me. Immediately we began discussing the members of the illustrious class of 1913. " You must know, " he said, " that several of your number are here now. Floyd Dowdy is Principal of the Model School, Wayne, Miss Avery and Miss Carnathan are critic teachers, while Julia Austin is sti ll studying French under the ' young professors. ' Auxford Sartain has been in each Senior class since ' 13, still trying to finish. We hope to get him through this time. Amos Madry is still making baskets for Mr. Nisbet in manual training. " At this moment a student entered. He had in his hand a very large book, and as he came nearer I discovered that it was a geometry. Dr. Powers took it and after explaining what the student desired, said, " That is a very fine book, the best I have ever used. By the way, it is compiled by two classmates of yours, Hattie Grimes and Ruth Brown. " I examined it and saw that it was really a fine book. " Oh, yes! " I exclaimed, " what has become of Sallye Frances? " " Why surely you have heard of her. She, Miss Mackey, Miss Miller and Miss Pullen are suffragettes. Evelyn is stumping the State of Illinois for Roosevelt in his fourth presidential campaign. They are considered quite prominent in suffragist politics. In the election last fall a number of our people were prominent. Miss White was elected Speaker of the House of Representatives; Edgar Branyon, Mr James and Tom Snow were also elected members of Congress. " We talked of the plans for the College until time for chapel. Dr. Powers told me that our speaker for the morning was to be Robert Cobb. He was to talk on journalism. From the start he made as Editor-in-Chief of the " Purple and Gold " he has risen to the front ranks in journalism, and is now editor of the Tri-Cities Daily. I could not fancy Robert making speeches before large audiences, but was highly entertained for half an hour. I was glad to talk with him after chapel, and he told me much of his life since school. He had kept in touch with Billy Seales, and said that he and George Dudley were play- ing Mutt Jeff at the Lyric Theater in Memphis. T could well fancy Billy in this capacity, but could not quite picture George as Mutt. I asked him if he was still interested in athletics, and he declared that his interest was as vital as ever. " By the way. what ever became of ' Doc ' Jones? " " He is the coach for Princeton football team. Did you know Josephine was married ? " he asked " No, but I am not at all surprised; you know she always wore suspicious looking diamonds. " He gave me a paper to look over, and on the front page I saw that Belle TTuger was traveling, giving lectures on Japan. She was a trained nurse in the recent war we had with Japan. Turning the pages I came to the social page. Here I saw a large picture, and imagine my surprise to see Willie Mae Leatherwood ' s name below it. Robert then told me that she, Blanche Evans and Velma Woodard were the most popular social leaders in Florence. I went further to the sporting page and there read of the great aero meet to be held in New Jersey. There were glowing accounts of the two most daring aviators, Robert Hudson and Ruth Heatherly. Dr. Powers came up then and told us that he had just received a message from Dr. Garland Smith, the pastor of the First Methodist Church of New York, saying that he would be able to preach the commencement sermon. He also remarked that the Lyceum Course had been particularly good that year, chief among the attractions being James Mc- Eachern, the famous tenor and Ross Shaver, the Shakespearean reader. Dr. Game soon joined the group, and I asked him what had become of Joe. His face brightened as he replied, " Joe is a specialist now. Misses Carter, Wall and Vaughn have established one of the most famous institutions of modern times near Rogersville. They have a home for infirm cats and dogs and Joe treats them. " Robert asked him if he knew what had become of Hiram Douglass, and he said, " Yes ; Hiram is running a New York Special from Memphis to Chattanooga. " I could not picture in my mind the immaculate Hiram as a railroad engineer. We separated then and I went over to the old college, which is now entirely devoted to the Model School. I went into the old model school chapel and thought of the many old pleasant Wednesdays I had spent there. Again I heard the roll call, ' ' Miss Leatherwood, Miss Lipscomb, Miss Lowman. " The voice seemed to say, " Well, I wonder what has become of Mary Lipscomb. I must remember to ask. " Then I heard in my reverie quick steps coming down the hall and turned to see Mr. Baird coming in late, as usual. Why, there is another whom I had not heard of. I hurried to the office and asked for information concerning these two. They told me that Mary was married, and that Mr. Baird was keeping a little store way out in the country near Center Star, and I understand that he makes it a point to keep open on Sundays in order to sell lunches to glee clubs, etc., that sometimes travel that road. What others of my ciass were left? I stopped to think. Yes, there is Jeppie Branyon, the Darbys, and Mr. Hodges. On investigation I learn the Darbys were keeping a stable in Kentucky and owned the fastest horses on the track, and that Jep and Mr. Hodges were both traveling, one for a candy firm and the other for a snuff factory. Ending my morning inquiries I learned that Mr. Arant had become a famous scientist. Senior Class Will KXOW all men by these presents that we, the Senior Class of 1913 of the State Normal College of Florence, Lauderdale County of Alabama, in the presence of both parties concerned and knowing the uncertainty of life, being reasonably sound in mind, do hereon declare and publish this our last will and testament. We do give and bequeath, first, our right and title to the back rows and also our sobriquet, Buzz Saw Seniors, to our beloved successors, the Juniors : second, another year of good hard boning during which you will be beaten by many stripes ; third, the privilege of skipping one lesson per week for the express purpose of doubling up the remaining four. To the next in line of importance the Sophomores we leave our most .;ilued ( ?) chapel talks and our place for you to pose as a target to be shot at bv a " Reoeater. " that only shoots three bullets, but shoots them an unlimited number of times. The bullets are familiar to us under the names. " The story of the hat. " " The storv of the U. of A. man ' s cloudy record. " and " the story of Daniel Webster ' s thirty-year speech. " To the Freshmen we leave that tantalizing- journev equal to that of Aneas. which thev learn of sooner or later. Dr. Game will pilot them to the said wanderer ' s destination. From the Latin department we will our Latin Grammar to the Model School as a constant companion for five years actual use twice. We further bequeath to this denartment the power ( ?) to learn without assistance all about Latin so you can sit up during the class and listen to the professor ' s stories about Garter snakes, marsh hens, etc.. without disturbing him with annoying questions about constructions. To the school we will our intellects, which alone are capable of successfully coping with " Probability " in college Algebra, and in this same connection we. the Analytics Class, bequeath to you the power to unravel its mysteries and to establish equilibrium after the dizzy whirl of nothingness it leads you through. To our followers we will our beloved English teacher, who with patience and ever-flowing fount of wisdom has lead us through this four years ' course, and whose broadness of mind is playing its part in the uplift of education and culture, and proving to the world woman ' s equality to man. To the pupils who are unfortunate enough to take Modern Languages we will Mr. Carmichael ' s long lessons and eloquent speeches on the Rhoad ' s Scholar- ship. With the remaining piece of sandpaper, which has done service for years, we bequeath our carefulness with and respect for said sandpaper together with Mr. Nesbit ' s lectures on extravagance. To our successors we bequeath the fear and trembling of the Model School, the excruciating pain of daily plan making, and the final terror of Wednesday afternoons. To the above-mentioned we leave our honored places, the time-worn seats, also the contents of the bound periodicals, and the stored up knowledge found in the library, and, above all, the tender solicitude and helpful attention of our Librarian. To said successors we will the drowsy spirit produced by Mr. Wood ' s soothing voice in Science, only on the condition that you will follow his example and go serenely to sleep during chapel exercises. From the History department we released all claims to those unmercifully long lessons in history and civil government, and in addition to this, we place in our will Bryce ' s " The American Commonwealth, " in which there will be only two or three chapters each day to read, study and knozv! Be it further stated that we will one hour from I to 2 o ' clock a. m. which our successors will have free from this department in which to study their other lessons. To the climbing Juniors we leave this a cross without a crown. It almost tears the hearts out of our bosoms but we feel it our duty on parting to leave our hopes of matrimony behind for Misses Powers, Mary Austin and Adele Blair. Joe Game ' s share of matrimonial hopes may buoy them up for a full quarter of a century. We, the Seniors of the Glee Club, refuse to part with our love for our director, but will to our successors the opportunity of being instructed and accompanied on their club trips by our ever-patient, ever-lenient, ever-smiling, always adorable Miss Knight. We, the Seniors of the Athletic teams, while very loath to loose the " kusscs " of Coach Wilds, leave them behind for those who aspire to athletic laurels. We. the girls of the Senior Class, will our ambition to entangle Mr. Bailes in our love net to the Beethoven of the College, Mattie Lee Smith. We will to the student body the pleasures of listening to the Italian songs rendered by our music teacher, Miss Sansom. The pupil teachers will the Junior Class the pulp maps and Mrs. Price ' s criticisms. " The man behind the gun, " the man who hears it all without a murmur, the man with untiring energy, the genial, the versatile man, Mr. Henry, with all of his loveable attributes, we bequeath to the entire student body. Arant, Seale, Baird, Shaver and McEarchern will their bald heads to Robt. Lee Glen. They feel that he will appreciate the change. We will Sartain ' s conceit to the whole school, faculty included, as it is too much for any individual. Robt. Cobb wills Auxford Sartain ' s B.S. degree from Jasper High School to Emmet Haley. Joe Game wills his natural flow of prevarication to Connie Babb. For partner turkey-trotters we will Amos Madry and Floyd Dowdy to Mary Southall and Ruth Roper. Lizzie Lowman ' s laugh we leave to Mary Darby, Erin Penn, Ruth Pearson and Ruby Darby it will suffice for all ; Belle Huger ' s application to Louise McFall. Sallie Frances Brown with her followers, Evelyn Miller, Blanche Evans, Rose Mackey, Velma Woodard, Kathleen Vaughn, Hattie Grimes leave their platform to the succeeding class. Mamie Pullen wills her modesty to Martha Alston. Jeppie Branyon leaves his red hair with Edgar Jackson. The apron strings which bound Robert Cobb are now broken loose, and the remnants left for the next handsomest boy in school. Mr. Baird ' s peculiarities and Jimmie McEachern ' s blushes we will to Ike Rogers. Hiram Douglass ' immaculateness we will to Wallace Porter, to be taken possession of on his twenty-first birthday. Since her arrival at the State Normal College the favorite of the Seniors, their staunch friend, their stand-by and consoler, Miss Bratton, this dearest possession of our Senior life, we reluctantly give up; but envying you this treasure as we do, still it is your right as future Seniors, and we bequeath it to the present Juniors. Xor do we deny giving that longing, lingering look. In testimony whereof we have hereunto set our hand and affixed our seal this 23rd day of April, 1913 A. D. JUNTOR Am v f3 % J no.

WITHOUT any shadow of a doubt that was certainly an awe-inspiring bunch of aspirants that responded to the Captain ' s call on Sep- tember the twelfth, nineteen hundred and ten. We were an extra- ordinary lot, for the Sophomores told us that we were the greenest Freshmen that ever entered the portals of the State Normal College. Out of that green company only eleven could stand the pace of coming back the next year. As Sophomores we were a fairly good-looking class. And to help the appearance of the class we were joined by several new members, who began with us the long and joyful journey. After getting off as many conditions and having just as few squabbles as possible, we at last reached the haven of rest Junior Class where we, like Trojans, beat and baffle every obstacle that appears in our path. On the gridiron we have not been so well represented, but watch our steps next year. On the diamond we were represented by Porter and Hill. In a game be- tween Florence and Athens " Guinea " Porter had four chances and made five errors. Hill did not make an error. Luck was with us, for never a ball rolled near him. Porter, Haley, Carmichael, Douglass are orators whose address and diction might well be envied by Demosthenes and Cicero. We sure have some real " cats " in the Music line. They are: Haley, the fiddle player ( ' tis rumored that when he plays the waters of Cypress creek dance for joy) ; Douglass and Jackson, the vocalists; and liabb, the pianist to be. But now we must say something of the co-eds of course something good. There is the winged Cupid of the class. Smith; McFall, the " Shark " in History; blond-haired Southall, humorist and jester at large ; and Alston, the ardent suffragette. There is little use for me to speak much of them, for the co-eds speak for themselves. Now, after nine more months of trials and tribulations, we are rewarded by hearing said unto us, " Well done, thou good and faithful Junior ; come up to higher things. Don ye each a cap and gown and become a Senior. " Charge to the Juniors Nestling among the beautiful hills On the banks of the broad Tennessee, Is our much loved Alma Mater The Florence S. N. C. Of all the Normal Colleges, This is the best in the land, And each of us is " roud to be In the Florence Normal band. Our faculty, too, is the best of all, Of this we proudly boast ; But we refrain from telling here Which one we love the most. They love us, too, this is true, I know; And on one thing they all unite, That the 1913 Senior Class Is as a class most erudite. We ' ve labored hard and done our best, We ' ve tried to be very good, We ' ve left undone the things that were wrong. And only done the things we should. Now, classmates, dear, please lend an ear, While I tell you that I am sad; I hate to leave the good old halls, And I hate it awfully bad. This breaking of ties and saying good-bye, I assure y ou gives us all pain, It is not so easy to part with friends Whom we ne ' er may meet again. 8 For when we leave this dear old place, We ' ll go in different directions. Our paths may not cross, we may ne ' er meet again, But we ' ll live in each others ' affections. Charge to the Juniors Continutd And as we pass through this big old world, Taking up life ' s serious duties, The path we traverse may sometimes be rough, But let ' s always look for some beauties. Our school days have been happy ones, We regret that they now are o ' er, It makes us sad to say farewell, So we ' ll only say, " an revoir. " II No wonder the teachers love the Senior Class, The Junior pupils cry, To emulate this wonderful class We shall most surely try. Yea, dear friends, now do be good, Be eager and earnest and true, For when you have fought the good fight, You ' ll get a diploma, too. -V. M. IV.

THE Sophomore Class of 1912-13 is one of the largest in the history of the college. We met early in the season, elected officers and drew up a constitution, thus starting on a legal basis. President Glenn, finding it hard to enforce parliamentary law, declared that we must abolish woman suffrage. , ' ; : ' Fortune has not deserted us in athletics this year. Five men represented us on the varsity football team, three girls on the basketball team, and one man on the baseball team. While studying argumentation the two divisions of the English class held a famous debate. Miss Simpson ' s class was represented by Guy Burns and Walter Milwee, and Mr. Bailes ' class by Thomas Wear and Alfred Ingle. The debate was pronounced one of the best class debates in our history. The repre- sentatives of Miss Simpson ' s class won, and settled forever that the United States has more to fear from the trusts and combines than from the race question. We have thus far had no very serious love affairs, but now that spring- time is gently tapping at the door of fancy, the dignified Sophomores are stroll- ing about the campus as though walking in a dream. James Jackson, one of our ladies ' men, when recently asked how many girls he had, replied, " I don ' t know; I was just wondering how many girls had me. " Although we take a great interest in the literary societies, athletics and other organizations, when it comes to hard work the Sophomores are always on hand. Thus we are diligently equipping ourselves for the noble profession of teaching.

WE had our first experience in college work only a few months ago. We had no honors before we came here and have won none since ; but we feel that we are of just as much importance as the Seniors, for, of course, if there were no Freshmen there would be no Seniors. Our claim to distinction lies not in our past accomplishments, but in our future possibilities. We have not the self-confidence of the Sophomores, who by their dignified manner make us look longingly into the land of " Next Year. " Some one has said that, " The boys and girls of today will become the men and women of tomorrow. " Just as true it is that the Freshmen of 1913 will become the Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors of 1914, ' 15 and ' 16, and upon them will fall the responsibility of keeping up the standards and preserving the good name which the institution already has. In our bonny group, which is the largest in the history of the institution, note the many bright faces and think not but that we will be true to our trust. At the beginning of the term we elect ed for President Marguerite O ' Steen. V ice-President Clara McCorkle. Secretary Nettie Mae Johnson, and Treasurer Annie Shepard. To them we offer a tribute for their faithful service. But the Freshman year is only the beginning of our struggles. We are making a history which will be completed in three years, and in which wijll appear all the heroic deeds and great achievements of our class. Our fondest hope now is that we shall pass all the examinations, and emerge from the dull, uneventful existence of inconspicuous Freshman into that high- browed, all-sufficient, self-satisfied state of Sophomoredom. Despair not little Freshman " Tall oaks from little acorns grow, Large streams from little fountains flow. " WOOD AVENUE, LOOKING NORTH FROM CITY PARK . I Dialectical Society Roll Arant, G. C.

FAR back in the sixties, when the echoes of war were dying in the South- land, when our State was just emerging from the dark period of desolation succeeding the great Civil War, our people, looking about ihem, saw destruction, and realized their only path of deliverance was education. In this atmosphere there assembled a little band of students athirst for knowledge and for greater advancement for themselves and their people. They organized under the following motto: ' ' Let us live to increase our power. " This move was the beginning of the celebrated organization known as the Dialectical Society. For nearly half a century this society has advanced and enlarged. Some of the leading men in all walks of life received their early training here. We are glad to claim such men as Dr. James K. Powers, Dr. John A. Wyeth, Hon. John B. Weakley, Hon. George P. Jones, Hon. William Richard- son, Hon. R. T. Simpson, and scores of others who have become prominent throughout the State. At present we are having a larger enrollment than ever before in the history of the society. The Dialectical Society stands as a monument to the past, an inspiration to the present, and an incentive to the future.

At this college, in the Tennessee Valley, in the midst of plantations white with cotton and teeming with slaves, the old LaFayette Society was founded. The exact date of its founding is unknown, but it was before 1830. At this old institution, the first called a college in the State of Alabama, the society set for itself a standard of excellence, which it has held throughout its history of almost a century. For a while the college of La Grange prospered, but soon debts and sick- ness wrecked the institution. In 1888 the school was moved to Florence and became the Weslyan University. In these years the La Fayette Society added new laurels to her crown and sent forth many strong men, who filled with honor the highest offices in the State. But soon the time of changes came, and in the evening of an old era the Weslyan Univeristy failed. But not so with the society. In the dawn of a new day the grandest Normal College that the State of Alabama can boast of was founded, and the La Fayette Society became a large factor in her development, and still sent out in the State her useful men. Here she placed higher her standard and maintained a record of excellency. The path of the society is from the La Grange to Florence, but the path of its members is from coast to coast, and the good it has done reaches from the farm to the Governor ' s mansion. Every boy that leaves this society goes out into life better fitted to solve the problems of the State, whether social or moral. Nearly a century has elapsed since the founding of this society, and during that time we see this grand old organization rise from the ruins of two colleges and win for herself new honors. Her place is now secure in the Normal College. When Florence, as she is slowly doing, becomes the center of education in Alabama, then she will furnish to the State greater members of loyal, patriotic citizens. If her past is inspiring, we must make her future still more glorious. Let every boy that has love for the old La Fayette blue with the example of the past behind him press forward until he places her standards on the highest peak of society work; then we can look down on the plains of life, a conqueror.

THE historian, after considering all the great achievements of the Dixie Club, is puzzled as to what to tell in so limited a space, when the field to be covered is so extensive and acts deserving are so numerous. You will please bear this in mind and read between the lines the wonderful deeds of the Dixie Club. In 1889 Miss Alma Baker of Tuscaloosa, realizing the honor that would be conferred upon the State Normal College, organized a " Dixie Club. " Her idea was to give an opportunity for the study of musicians and artists and noted writers. The club started to work holding a meeting every Friday afternoon in the La Fayette Hall immediately after school. Every year they have done good work and had many efficient members. We might mention here some of our alumni : Miss Mary Jackson, who is now in Texas, but still is lovingly remem- bered. Miss Tracyne Baker so longed to be a Dixie that the Tennessee River was a slight barrier. She was an inspiration to us all. We might mention many others that were active workers. We shed many tears over our lost members, and envy those who have entered matrimony. The year 1912-13 has been the best out of fourteen. We have had the largest enrollment in the history of the club. We redecorated our room so that it is inviting and restful, and hope to continue doing more each year to add to its beauty. We entertain every month to show our Southern hospitality. In these meetings we have a carefully arranged program, including musical numbers, addresses, debates and many other interesting features, followed by delightful refreshments. This year many of our members are Seniors and the time has come when we have to bid them farewell. We lose some of the strongest members the club has ever had, or will have : Miss Helen White, the " Dixie Artist : " Miss Elizabeth Lowman, the " Amateur Soloist: " Miss Willie Mae Leatherwood, the " Unsurpassed Orator ; " Miss Belle Huger, the " Humorist ; " and Wayne Morris, the " Cracker Jack Dixie. " Over two hundred students of the State Normal College sing : " Learn to say with all your heart Love old Dixie and do your part. " )U Glee Club Gabriella KnichTj Director E. A.

Motto : Develop the Mind, Body, and Spirit. OUR Y. M. C. A. was organized in February, 1912, with the following officers : Garland S. Smith, President ; William J. Baird, Vice-Presi- dent; Hiram Douglas, Secretary; and Wallace Porter, Treasurer. Although this is the Association ' s first year, it has done some very effective work. Devotional meetings have been held weekly and the organization is making an earnest effort to replace, as nearly as possible, the moral influence of homes from which the students come, and to develop habits of Christian living. We have the hearty co-operation of the business and professional men, not only of Florence, but of nearby cities as well. We have had during the year many lectures on moral and physical questions, aside from our regular devotional meetings. Our members are among the best fellows to be found anywhere. Nothing else has done quite so much to make the new man feel at home as has our organization. At the beginning of the year our committees met new students at the trains, assisted them in finding suitable boarding places, and gave them information about the College and town. The following delegates were sent to the Southern Students Conference at Black Mountain : Thomas A. Snow, Josiah B. Game, Jr., and Ross O. Shaver. Officers for 1913-14: Thomas A. Snow, President; Buell W. Douglass, Vice-President ; Azel Llewellen, Secretary and Treasurer. I _ Y. w. a A. OUR Y. W. C. A. was reorganized in 191 1 by Miss Theodosia Wales. The purpose of the organization is to promote a helpful spirit among ' students, to arouse a deeper religious feeling, and to create interest in practical charitable work. In order to carry out this purpose, the Y. W. C. A. through its own efforts has furnished a chapter room, has appointed committees to correspond with prospective students and assist new pupils, and holds devo- tional meetings twice a month. The Bible Class this year has been studying the " Women of the Old Testament, " under the leadership of Mrs. Mary Hos- kins. Through the society relief has been given to a number of destitute families. The social side of school life has not been neglected. During both years receptions and other entertainments have been given. Last year the " Japanese Evening, " and this year the " Peak Sisters " were found highly enjoyable. Three of the officers. Miss Ruth Peerson. President ; Miss Mary Darby, Vice-President, and Miss Mabel White. Secretary, will represent the Y. W. C. A. at the annual conference at Ashville, X. C, this summer. 5 -i - uj c uJ O a o a X - J G. L. Bailes, Faculty Manager Ike Rogers, Student Manager Jim Kilkurn, Captain i stlhfc i _ ' " - J Edward A.

Arant Lee Hamner Familiar Quotations In the year passed by, a brave young girl Passed- through the Normal course, Absorbing all the different studies By contact or by force. She won her " dip " all right and started On life ' s rugged way, Confident the knowledge gained Would be her surest stay. But when the frights of " Practice Teaching " Assaulted her once more, She thought, " What would Miss Burt say If she happened in the door? " Her mind grew very foggy and her thoughts Were all in mist, And she only heard the echo : " Seems to me we could do better than this. " Of all bad boys she had the worst Completely beyond control, And she tried to think what " Old Bagley " had said. And Miss Bratton had taught of old; But " Old Bagley " faded entirely away, And Miss Hratton ' s voice had grown dim in that year. So she could only hear the familiar strain of, " Oh say, class ! See here ! " Nothing daunted, this brave, young girl Attempted to teach a class in " Phys, " And when stumped she tried to think What would Mr. Wood tell a class of his? She thought until to science Her mind would no longer linger. But all she could remember Was the pointing finger. Geometry, too, appalled her, and the Figures would not work out on her plan. As she tried, oh ! so hard, To make them understand. Her thoughts went back to Mr. Harrison ' s room And his conclusions to these ; But all she could remember was, " Close your books, please. " But, oh ! in teaching history And the battles of the strong, Her mind became so weary And the hours dragged along. How did Mrs. Vaughn straighten out These different views? Then the trees, even, seemed to whisper, " Well, who has the news? " Her weary mind to Latin flies, To the war of hither Gaul ; To the ten-year seige of ancient Troy; And " Mirabile dictu " fall, And to Dr. Game, when the minutes passed Have numbered thirty-nine, Inquiring with a business air, " What ' s the line? " Oh, ye gods! send me sense to teach This English as it ought to be, And make young minds the beauty of Both prose and poetry to see. Her prayer is stopped she jumps with a start, And in a faint falls flat; For she hears Miss Simpson asking, " How many of you see that? " Still she struggled on, to make All math, to come out straight ; And worried so about it She ' d absolutely shake. She wondered, " How did I do it that year Miss Powers let me make a pass? " And from a distance comes the order, " Do your loving out of class. " Her mind is now exhausted, And she has a bad nightmare; Familiar voices are a-buzzing Familiar sayings in the air. Cut that out, " and " That will do, " " To my mind, " and " Probably so, " Are all mixed and jumbled With a rumble low of, " You Seniors are the worst class I have, " And, " Each student should have a dictionary, " " You are the worst I ever saw, " Hello ! ther-r-r-re ! " Well, let ' s see ; " " Put that in alcohol, " and when The rumble is still She hears Mr. Henry, " I certainly will. " Yes, Dear Seniors, she wakes; But you may profit by her dream, And never too much On your memory lean: But when in doubt to the library go. And there at your ease, Review your old text books, but, " No talking, please. " SEE JtDDS.
