History of the C ass o 44 Dear Students and Faculty Members: I am glad you have asked me to relate the history of my graduating class to you because l am sure we have all found it to be the hap- piest and most eventful four years we have ever spent. lflfhen we made our first appearance at Mississippi Southern College in the fall of l94O we had a freshman class of lO5. We were greeted on the campus by the upperclassmen and were taken on a tour of the city, introduc- ed to the mayor and other city officials and then back to school for a robin-hand shake and punch. Our class was just as green as they come, although we at that time disagreed: but of course we changed our minds on freshman day when we found ourselves crawling around the campus at the shout cf an upperclassman. We respected them, however-to the extent that we dressed quite attractively for the occasion. Our dress-all in uniform, incidentally-consisted of short dresses worn wrong side outwards, hind part before, with knee-length black bloom- ers, white cotton stockings, and unmated shoes. 'We also introduced a new coiffure, although we noticed not any of the upperclassmen ac- cepted our style to such a degree that they copied us. l really don't know why-it couldn't be because we complained, because we didn't dare! This new hair-do consisted of several plaits with coat-hangers hanging from them. As for the boys on this day-well, we thought they were very disrespectful. They didn't even go to the trouble to dress-they just came to class with their pajamas on. However, we will admit some were decent enough to wear nightcaps and robes. They all had the familiar hair out that is usually seen around college campuses at the first of the school year. We ended the day by entertaining the student body at the football game between halves. With our class there came a number of new faculty members. They included Miss Allie 'Nord Billingsley, Miss Willery lackson, Mr. S. A. Vlfilkinson, Dr. H. C. Steele, Miss Forrest De- Lano, and three new matrons, Mrs. S. A. Wil- kinson, Mrs. C. T. Singleton, and Mrs. Selah Carmichael. Mr. H. M. Craft was made vice- president and Mr. Balph Hayes, business mana- ger. Some of the events which we will long re- member as freshmen are the wonderful football and basketball games which kept us in such high spirits, and the friendliness of the student body and facultyp the time the student body and faculty members were up at dawn to assist in the registration out at Shelbyg the Bed Cross work that was begun on our campus: then of course the rush week and hell week held by our different sororities nad fraternities are add- ed to our precious memories. Our class was led through a very success- ful year with Moran Pope serving as president: Anne Gilliam, vice-presidentg Sunshine Mason, secretary and treasurer, lack Thigpen, reporter, and Dr. H. A. Shands as sponsor. At the close of our freshman year we were no longer green freshmen but were ready to be referred to as Hupperclassmenf' September, l94l, found us a large lively bunch of Sophomores ready for more work and play. We had to make new adjustments: world affairs were becoming more serious, and by the end of the year many of our boys had entered some form of service or were enrolled in re- serve corps. There was a drop in the student enrollment but even so our school continued with a high morale. We elected as president of our class Billy McLendong he served with Ormond Pringle as vice-president, Karl Bishop as secretary and treasurer, and Elizabeth Rischer as reporter. One new faculty member was added to the staff, W. E. Barksdale as Dean cf Students. Many events took place this year-some very good, some undesirable. We had a girls' honorary fraternity organized, Phi Delta Rho. This year we had an undefeated football sea- son and had one of the l8 unbeaten teams in the United States. This was also the first year for a girl to be the bell ringer and the first year since the name of the college was changed to Mississippi Southern that the school had an alma mater. Also in this year we will always remember the date December 7, and the way conditions changed after then. We will always remember, too, that it was in the spring of this year we lost one of our beloved professors, Dr. Peterson. After Pearl Harbor our school was all out for defense. 'We had organized on our campus a civilian defense school, in which every stu- dent participated. Blackout practices were often held and more students worked in the Bed Cross centers. The atmosphere had almost complete- ly changed by the end of our sophomore year. We had come from the fun and frolic to the more serious state. The girls continued in high spirits but the change was almost a sudden one and it took a student body with a lot of ambi- tion to maintain the pre-war morale. Besides many of our boys leaving for the service, we also had three instructors to go. They were Coach Vann, Mr. W. H. Ford and Dr. I. F. Wal- ker. Among our sophomores receiving honors during this year we find Elizabeth Bischer vot- ed wittiest in our annual Who's Who contest and Bill Mclsendon voted best-dressed boy. Those selected as beauties in The Southerner, our annual, were: Sunshine Mason, Lillian Cooper, Doris Evans, leanne Donovan, Anne Gilliam, and Tommye Lou Dabbs. Before the end of the year our class presi- dent, Billy McLendon, paid a visit to President Boosevelt, and later joined the Navy. The next year brought much excitement to our class as well as the rest of the student body. lt was in the fall of '42 that our college was honored to have an Army Administration school on our campus. lt was about the best morale booster we could have had, and l'm sure all of you enjoyed the good times that we shared together. There also came to us three new instructors this year: Mr. W. L. johnson, Mr. A. D. Gwings, and Mr. 'William V. Harlan. Mr. B. W. Curry was chosen as business manager of the col- lege. Among those teachers who left us were Miss Cora Webb Bass, English instructor who took her place with the Women's Army Auxil- iary Corps: Coach Beed Green, who went to the Navy: lohn M. Frazier, who joined the Army Medical Corps: and Business Manager Ralph Hayes, who entered the State Guard. Members of our faculty to enter the field of matrimony included Mrs. Angela Lacey McConville, Mrs. Gladys Bingham McAllister, and Mrs. Mary Theresa Poe Baylis. Sadness dwelled on the campus on Wed- nesday, September l0, when Dr. W. H. Weathersby, professor of education, died of a heart attack. Among our honor students we find john l. Hibbett, Frances Mclntosh, Moran Pope, Eliza- beth Bischer, and Bobert Thompson represent- ed in Who's Vtfho in American Colleges and Universities. Moran Pope received the good citizenship award. ln our Who's Who contest lohn l. Hibbett was voted as best dressed boy, Merle Carr and Perry Waldvogel as cutest cou- ple, and Bobert Thompson as most handsome boy. We were led through another successful year with President Charles Vifallace, Vice- President Dorothy Gentile, Secretary-Treasurer Sunshine Mason, and Beporter Dot Price. Ah! At last that long-hoped-for year has come! The lowly green freshmen of '40 have become the highly honored seniors of '44. This year has been one of great events. We elected as our leaders lohn T. Brent, president: Katherine Mobley, vice-president: Sunshine Mason, secretary-treasurer: Madelon McMul- lan, reporter: and Dr. McLemore, sponsor. Social life on the campus entered a new phase this year. The cooperation between our school and the Army Administration school offered much entertainment: but by the end of lanuary the Army school had been transferred and we were left almost manless again. Thanks to the Social Life committee arrangements were made for the Social center to remain open on Friday and Saturday nights from 7 to 9:50 p. rn. and on Sundays from 3 to 5 and from 7 to 3:50. The senior girls were also permitted FO have dates in the dormitory lobbies on nights during the week, and outside boys were allowed to come to school socials and date the girls pro- vided they were on the approved list. The enrollment was low but the spirit high. The girls showed their leadership ability. Last year we introduced Mae Elizabeth Brigance as the first girl bell-ringer. This year we have two other girls taking leading positions which have up until this year been occupied by a man. They are Alice Stringer, president of the Stu- dent Body, and Dot Price, business manager of the Student Printz and the college yearbook. lntra-mural sports played an important part this year and brought us all closer together. The night of November 20, l943, became a his- torical one for the sororities on our campus as the finest Pan-Hellenic dance made its debut in the college gymnasium. Later came the stu- dent body's second annual Christmas banquet, which is to be a permanent feature of Southern's social life. Seniors represented in Who's Vtfho in American Colleges and Universities were Me' le Carr, Dorothy Gentile, Sunshine Mason, Alice Stringer and lohn T. Brent. Those represented in our campus 'Who's Vifho contest were lohn T. Brent, Mr. M. S. C.: Virginia Lewis, Miss M. S. C.: Mary Bush Sheppard, girl with best line: Mattie Lois Barksdale, friendliest girl: Alice Stringer, most collegiate girl: Lillian Cooper, most beautiful. Those of our seniors who have married dur- ing this year are: Marguerite Thetford, Marvel Turner, Moran Pope, luanita Herring, and Elizabeth Brumfield. Few changes in the faculty were made. Dr. McLemore was made Dean of Students: Miss Mary Anne Oden, former M.S.C. student, and Mrs. lane Ballard were added to the music faculty: Miss Mildred Anne Martin was elect- ed Nursery School tea Zher, and Mrs. Schwartz became Physical Educatioii instructor. All through our college life improvements have been made on our campus, and this year especially we are proud to witness the beau- tification program which is underway. Vfe are also proud of the wonderful tennis courts given us, the sun-parlors on the dormitories, the new outdoor fireplace, and the new roofs which add much beauty to our buildings. All of these im- provements will remain in our beautiful meincr- ies of M.S.C. We are greatly honored to be a part of the college when it was chosen as one cf three colleges to receive an endowment by the Sloan foundation. These four years have flown by so swiftly and the time has now come for us to step into another world to meet and accept newer and greater responsibilities. lt is with regret that the class of '44 leaves this lovely campus, the students and the teachers, because it feels a cherished love for the college of which it is a part. And for those cf our class who normally would have been with us today we have a prayer within our hearts that God will be with you, guide you and bring you back so that some day in the future we may all get together again. To these boys, Ted Scarborough, Clinton . fy Doolittle, lames CPicl4leD Forte, Howard Gilliam, Rivers King, Wilson Carruth and lohn Mc- Kewen, all of whom were members of our stu- dent bcdy during the past four years whose lives have been taken that we might live, we bow in mernoriam and pray that they rest in peace until we all meet again. COne minute of silencel. As we come to this closing chapter of our lives and as we are able to look to the future with a better understanding of what life ex- pects cf us, may our love, our friendship and the imperishable memories cf our class pass into the history of our Alma Mater.

MTE L .tu ,senior C ass Prop lecy To the Class of '44 and Anyone Else lnterested: lmagine it to be May of l954. Do you won- der what has become of the members of the class of '44, what they are doing now? Perhaps the following items that l have gathered here and there will help. Several of the class are teaching. Gloria Coleman and Zelda Stubbs liked their Demon school practice so well that they have contin- ued teaching these past years. Harweda Frid- dle is the only one of the English majors who has taught her major subject. The Sibyl we knew is now Miss Iohnson, head of the mathe- matics department at Poplarville lunior college. Frances Strait is still occupying her first oosi- tion, also. No girl in that school feels ready to graduate until she has had home economics under Miss Strait. Imogene Dallas seems to be the only other home economics major who is teaching--but there is Iarie Rhodes, who took Miss Fritzsches place when the latter left M.S. C. for a husband. Carrie Easterlinq is in the poultry business, l hear. Vifhen the hens became tco much of a job for her alone, she asked Virginia Lewis to buy half-interest in Easterling Egg, lnc. Miss Lewis, after remembering her experiences with poultry in the Home Management house, eager- ly did so. There are a number of the girls who have devoted themselves entirely to the care and bringing-up cf their families. Among them are Brownie Graham Ritchie, Elizabeth Brumfield Plohetski, Narvelle Sanders, and Marvel Tur- ner Drennan. Marie Louise Robinson has also been very "Happy" with her family, and Mar- iorie Little did marry lunior. "Baby" Simmons followed the dictates of her nickname and founded the Kindergarten College for lnfants, which has become a well- known addition to the Demonstration school. Dimple Lane and Flois Thomas are still riv- als, only now it is in the photographic world. They are both models, and one sees their pic- tures everywhere these days. Walline Cowart decided ten years ago to be an old maid. She sang "Don't Sweetheart Me" then, and she's still singing it now. After getting her degree from Mississippi Southern, Sunshine Mason decided to start all over again. She earned her medical degree and is now affiliated with her father. Kathryn Mobley has had several very suc- cessful exhibits of her paintings and sketches. The critics praise her technique quite highly. Gertrude Breazeale's autobiography "The World As l Know lt" has become the best seller of the decade. The All-Girl orchestra has become a new thing since trumpeteer Mary Bush Sheppard took over the leadership. Alice Stringer. as fea- tured soprano, adds much color and charm to the program. Lillian Cooper has won top-flight honors in the operatic role especially created for her by the imminent composer we knew as Barbara Morris. Mattie Lois Barlcsdale has made perhaps the most spectacular success of all the class. While singing one of her famed encores, she was dis- covered by a talent scout from the Grand Ol' Qpry. And she has endeared herself to all Cl' Opry listeners. Someone told me that Merle Carr has fin- ally rnade up her mind and settled down to a life Cf wedded bliss. Another example of Home Economics training put into practice. After working in a laboratory for five years, Tommye Lou Dabbs has opened a swanky night club on the shores of Lake Byron. Dorothy Gentile has organized a dancing school for tiny tots-but all they seem to learn is iitterbugging. We find Fannie Merle Hart still sewing, but now it's sailor suits she's making for her triplets. From her nursery school experiences Mil- dred Mayo has written a standard textbook on child psychology. Vcndee Lott with her winning personality and cratorical ability is making quite a success in politics. Dot Price, back in l948, discovered a secret formula which is popularly known today as "Little Dottie's Hair lztestorerf' Her profits from this produce have made Miss Price a "Million- hairessf' -1' Iuanita Herring Robinson has settled down on a Delta plantation. ln the office of a Congressman in Washing- ton, Ve1'a Belle Dooley can be found pounding away on a typewriter. Mary Elizabeth Glannen is proving that mar- riage and career do mix as she continues to hold her position as a receptionist. Soon the Hattiesburg Concert Association will be proud to present Eugenia Kathryn Grif- fin, famous concert pianist, Cknown to us in l944 as "Kate"l who will play Schumann's Concerto in swingtime. On the corner of Hollywood and Vine there is a small exclusive dress shop-proprietor, Billie lean Pigott. Mary Grace Stringer is still singing the "Ly- manhouse Blues." Mrs. Lee Ora Bridges is capably fulfilling her job in the library of Congress. Edith Buckley, well-known interior decora- tor, has been called back to the campus to re- decorate the home of the president. After spending his senior year at M.S.C., surrounded by girls, Iohn T. Brent decided that he liked it. f-le stormed l-lollywood back in l948 and is now Americas matinee idol. There they are-Mississippi Southern's graduating class of l944.

Brookhaven Magnolia HIGH LIGHT' OF 1943-44 tFridc1y, Nov. 5, 19431 Plans for rush week are first and foremost in the minds of everyone at Mississippi South- ern college this week. Beginning on Sunday, November l4, with a Pan-Hellenic tea, and end- ing on Saturday, November 20, with a dance given by the Pan-Hellenic, it will be the high- light of all social activity on the campus during the fall quarter. Bush week will be formally opened on Sun- day, November 14, with a tea given by the Pan Hellenic Council. This tea will be held from four to five at the home of Dr. and Mrs. l. B. George. Members of the Pan-Hellenic council and sponsors of the sororities are to serve in the receiving line. Invitations will be mailed. After the formal opening of Bush week the five sororities will send out invitations to their individual parties, The final feature of Bush week will be the dance, which will be given on Saturday, No- vember 20, in the gymnasium.

Perry Dixon, former director of B.O.T.C. in the lackson city schools. The local unit is the second oldest of its kind, the unit at Ole Miss being about three weeks older.

C., announced recently. The work to be carried on in connection with this project is "An Economic Experiment."

A workshop will be conducted on the cam- pus during the summer quarter, it was announc- ed by Dr. B. G. Lowrey, who is director of the project here. Several programs are being worked out in schools in the vicinity of Hat- tiesburg. tFriday, March 10. 1944i Student government is a reality at Missis- sippi Southern college for the first time since 1925, following the ratification and signing of the new student body constitution drawn up Ly a committee of faculty members and students.

March 31. 19441 Fourteen years before maturity, the bonds on the stadium dormitory of Mississippi South- ern college have been paid, Dr. I. B. George, president, announced today. The bonds, amounting to 9577,000, were bought by the B.F.C., to be paid off over a period of twenty years. The original cost of building was Sl40,000, of which 303,000 was a qrant from the federal government. No money from the state of Mis- sissippi was used to build the dormitory. Dur- ing the month of February, 1944, more than half of the remaining bonds due were retired, now all the bonds have been called in. Dr. George stated, "The building has been paid off in full and has not cost the state of Mississippi one cent. lt is a record cf which we of Mississippi Southern are indeed proud." 7 1 Q7 ,MQ J 2 f " x.,, , I In fl ' fz f , 414' W ' 1, 5 if Y , V- A- ff 'ff ,f .4 X If f Vfflgjrf' by f f if , ,ifaai 2 2333! , , gf ff X fi , mgwf 'Wf ' Nh, f A ,gg va 2712 Q- , 33 In X , 131 , , , A 3 1: I:-E33 1: ' 1 wh.
