Cabinet 1919; President of Senior Class 1920; Honorary Member of Executive Board 1920; Honor Roll 1917-18-19; Glee Club 1917-18-19. Upholder of the Crimson-White, Our guide and friend this whole year through, Our President, we toast to you! JEAN MARGUERITE CAMERON Mt. Hebron, Ala. Entered 1916; Emma Hart Willard 1917-18-19-20; Sec- retary of Class 1919-20; Treasurer of Emma Hart Wil- lard 1919-20. Jean is a dear girl, but we do not always tell her so every time the thought enters our minds. She has never been known to go back on a friend, and she is one who can know of your faults and still love you. LUCILE ADAMS " Cile " Jackson, Alabama Entered 1916: Historian of the Philomathic Club 1917- 18; Treasurer Philomathic Club 1918-19; Historian Phil- omathic Club 1919-20; Treasurer Senior Class 1919-20. She is liked by all, admired by most, and enjoys a lion ' s share of popularity among faculty and students. She has won her " rep " through an over-abundance of in- tellectual ability, hence always stars in " A ' s. " EVELYN TRAWICK Birmingham, Ala. Entered 1916; Member Glee Club 1916-17-18-19; Class Prophet 1919-20. We envy her for her curly hair; we admire her for her fairness; we love her for her dear jolly self. Per- haps her sincere nature is sometimes ruffled, but if so, her camouflage is a " screaming " success. MINNIE McGOWIN Brewton, Ala. Entered 1913; Class Musician 1913-14-19-20; Class Marshal 1913-14-15; Class President 1917-18-19; Mem- ber Glee Club 1917-18-19-20; President Glee Club 1918- 19; Emma Hart Willard Club 1918-19-20; Executive Board 1918-19; Y. W. C. A. Cabinet 1918-19; Y. W. C. A. Music Committee 1919-20; President Tutwiler Club 1919-20; Alabama Centennial Celebration 1919. Minnie is " all my fancy painted her. She is lovely, she ' s divine. " She has been haunting old Montevallo lo! these many years. She is a product of the 1913 " subs, " but we are glad she waited for us, for the " most attrac- tive girl in school " is a possession no class anywhere would not be proud to claim. LILLIAN JONES " Baby Jones " Safford, Ala. Entered 1915; Story Tellers League 1915-16-17-18; Treasurer of Storv Tellers League 1916-17; Honor Roll 1915-16-17; Central Committee of Y. W. C. A. 1917-18; Glee Club 1918-19; Senior Play 1919-20; Critic of Philomathic Club 1919-20; Historian Senior Class 1919-20. Lillian is our panacea for blues. She ' s as good as she is fair, — As pure in thought as angels are. To know her is to love her. JEAN FORD " Flivver " Hartford, Ala. Entered 1917; Class Marshal 1917-18-19-20; Vice- President Y. W. C. A. 1919-20; Emma Hart Willard; Honor Roll 1918-19-20; Girl Scout 1919-20. This little girl deserves all the praise that pen could write. She is sure to win the love of all who know her because she has a striking personality. ELOISE WEST Uniontown, Ala. Entered 1917; Member of the Emma Hart Willard Club; Story Tellers League 1918-19-20; Honor Roll 1917-18-19; Senior Marshal 1919-20. This rare bit of jollity hails from Uniontown. Though always full of fun, beneath her gaiety lies a bright mind and big heart. These qualities we appreciate, but we love her for her dear jolly self. IDA JACKSON Littleton, Ala. Entered 1916; President Y. W. C. A. 1919-20; Execu- tive Board 1919-20; Girl Scout 1919-20; Technala Staff 1918-19-20; Basket Ball Team 1917-18-19; Honor Roll 1917-18-19; Alabama Centennial Celebration 1919. Never was there a more striking personality. Her friends are numbered by those who know her. She is a capable, unselfish leader, and a true friend with an influence for all that is refined, uplifting, and noble. ALLENE BELL Pigeon Creek, Ala. Entered 1916; Member Better Speech Council 1916- 17; Secretary of Executive Board 1917-18; President of Executive Board of the Student Government Organiza- tion 1919-20; Honorary Member of Y. W. C. A. Cabinet 1919-20; Girl Scout 1919-20. There seems to be so much back of those translucent eyes that you can never tell all about Allene. She has won many, many friends because she is indeed a friend herself. LILLIAN BELL " Bill " Vincent, Ala. Entered 1916; Member of Philodendroi Club. A willing friend, a helper, a lifter; — she is by nature very quiet, but in her we are reminded that " Still waters run the deepest. " MAUDE JUDSON BIBB " Tic " Elmore, Ala. Entered 1918; Emma Hart Willard Club 1918-19-20; Glee Club 1918-19-20. She is true and genuine and likes heaps o ' fun. " Work is work and must be done; but while I work let me have my fun.

" She ' s brilliant and happy And striving for fame, Tho ' breaking hearts at present is her game! " A willingness to do good deeds, the truest of friends, and a lover of good times, is Amy. GEORGIA VIRGINIA BRYANT " Jennie " Stockton, Ala. Entered 1915; Glee Club 1915-16; Story Tellers League 1917-18; Orchestra 1917-18-19-20. She is gentle, patient, self-denying; so may her voy- age through life be as happy and as fine as the dancing waves on the deep blue ocean. SADIE MARGUERITE BRYANT " Sade " Stockton, Ala. Entered 1917; Tvpist for Technala 1918-19; Story Tellers League 1917-18. A gentle mind by gentle deeds is known. Sadie is always willing and ready to help anyone. Her quiet winning ways and her ambitious thoughts are leading her to higher planes. ANNIE LAURIE BULLARD " Blondie " Elba, Ala. Entered 1917. She is pretty, lovable, and independent — that ' s why we love her. It makes no difference with her which way the wind blows. MARY B. CARLTON " See " Prentice, Ala. Entered 1918; Glee Club 1918-19. " She is the neatest, the sweetest, and the trimmest lit- tle maiden filled with overwhelming ambition and enthu- siam. " This ambition causes her to do many remark- able things.

" She is our best all round girl; She ' s everything a girl should be, — She ' s a true, straight-forward lass. She ' s a winner for her class " — Our Gatch! HATTIE MARY GIBSON " Hattie-Bat " Bessemer, Ala. Entered 1918; Subscription Manager of Technala Staff 1919-20; Honor Roll 1918-19-20. Hattie demands, " the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. " This can instantly be seen by a glance into her soft, honest, brown eyes. She ' s ex- actly what one would call a " good sport, " for, my, how funnv she can be! EDNA FRANCES GILLILAND Attalla, Ala. Entered 1915; Glee Club 1916-17-18-19; Honor Roll 1918; Basket Ball 1919; Story Tellers League 1916-17; Athletic Director 1919-20. Edna is sympathetic and lovable, sincere and original. Her loyalty, which is as true blue as her eyes, has won for her a world of friends. There is really none that can compare with her. JUSTINE ALCORN HALL " Jess " Gainesville, Ala. Entered 1918; Honor Roll 1918-19-20; Senior Play 1919-20. It is Jessie to whom we are all looking and whom we are expecting to hold high the standards of our Alma Mater. She has been here long enough to win the affec- tions of us all. MARY WILLARD HALL " Woodie " Geneva, Ala. Entered 1916; Vice-President Philodendroi Club 1919- 20; Girl Scout 1919-20. Mary Willard is one of our strongest girls. Her chief characteristic is — well — to sum it up: " She could mar a curious tale in telling it. " ANGELA RAYBURN HAMILTON " Bill " Warrior, Ala. Entered 1915; Chinese Cantata 1915; Prize from Bet- ter Speech Committee 1916: Y. W. C. A. 1915-16-17-18- 19; Central Committee Y. W. C.

Angela loves to talk, but she generally has something to talk about, for she is very entertaining and always has many original stunts in mind ' to hand out, " as we happen to need them. FANNIE MAE HINTON " Hinton " Prattville, Ala. Entered 1918; Basket Ball 1918-19-20; Captain Senior Basket Ball Team 1919-20; Emma Hart Willard Dra- matic Club 1918-19; Member Y. W. C. A. Cabinet 1919- 20; Treasurer Castalian Club 1919-20; Girl Scout 1919-20. " Hinton " is a good example of a well-balanced girl. Her good looks and genial nature make her very popular, but I don ' t see yet how she manages to combine love with education. MABEL HOSKINS Montevallo, Ala. Entered 1916; School Orchestra 1917-18. Although she is a town girl one must only know her to love her. At all times quiet and kind, she is a true and worthy friend. She is always willing to do her bit in everything to be undertaken. ZELLA ISRAEL " Zel " Johns, Ala. Entered 1915; Story Tellers League 1915-16-17-18; Honor Roll 1915-16-17-18-19-20; Advertising Manager Technala 1919-20; Alabama Centennial 1919. Tho ' " Zel " entered several (?) years ago, it is no sign that she is backward, for no detail escapes her observant eye or her irreproachable memory. We could not be without " Zel " and can not conceive of A. T. I. and C. being without her. SARAH JOHNSON Brundidge, Ala. Entered 1918; Vice-President Philomathic Club 1918- 19; Honor Roll 1919-20; Emma Hart Willard Dramatic Club 1918-19-20. Sarah is noted for her jollity and is always the fun of the crowd. There is a light of love in her eyes, a smile of happiness on her lips, and always a note of joy in her voice. ANNIE MARY JONES-WILLIAMS Montevallo, Ala. Entered 1916; Honor Roll 1916-17-18-19-20; Critic Tutwiler Club 1919-20, College Orchestra 1916-17-18- 19-20. We admire her for her generosity and sympathetic nature. There is a grace and charm about her manner that may be coveted by many of her friends. MARIE JONES " Jane " Rockfor, Ala. Entered 1917. Carefree but wise; slow but easy, loving and desirin to be loved — she is always happy even though di: appointments come. LILLIAN KENDRICK " Priscilla " McCalla, Ala. Entered 1917; Girl Scout 1919-20. Her baby-face is always sweet. She never boasts of her ambitions, but you know she has a pure heart, noble thoughts, and wins lasting friendships. She has won honor by leaving her Alma Mater a new college song. THELMA KING " Jap " Midway, Ala. Entered 1916. She is sweet, but who doesn ' t know that? Her heart is in her hand, but who fails to know that? " Ruby lips, blue eyes, and brown hair, Make the features of one so rare. " ANNIE LAURIE LARKIN " Laurie Anne " Brewton, Ala.

A. 1919-20; Emma Hart Willard Dramatic Club 1918-19-20; Honor Roll 1918-19-20; Class Poet 1919-20; Alabama Centennial 1919. Annie Laurie possesses a peculiar talent of producing effect in whatever she says or does, a very embodiment of all the queenly charm her classic name suggests. IMOGENE B. LEE " . B. " Blocton, Ala. Entered 1916. " The fairest garden in her looks. And in her mind the wisest books. " " Brains Personified " describes Imogene to a " T. " She is not naturally affectionate but has a great many admirers. ARTEMISE MOTT " Art " Mobile, Ala. Entered 1916; Member of Y. W. C. A. 1916-17-18-19- 20; Central Committee of Y. W. C. A. 1917-18; Mem- ber Story Tellers League 1916-17-18; Alabama Centen- nial 1919. Mischievous, jolly and full of fun, she is the life of the crowd; but when it is necessary for serious thought and work, she is never found wanting. MARJORIE NARRAMORE " Madge " Prattville, Ala. Entered 1918; Basket Ball 1918; Honor Roll 1919; Girl Scout 1919-20; Y. W. C. A. Social Committee 1919-20; Technala Staff 1919. Always smiling with a joke in hand, yet withal a person that is able to look on the serious side of life. Sh e is destined to make herself felt in the affairs of women, for a conspiracy of fate and chance could never defeat her determination. ALDA NELSON " Mrs (?) Nelson " Columbiana, Ala. Entered 1917; Vice-President Story Tellers League; Honor Roll 1918-19-20. Little tho she is, she wins her way into the affections of a host of friends. She has been in Montevallo just long enough to make her presence seem absolutely neces- sary to the institution. BERTHA MAE NICHOLS Adamsville, Ala. Entered 1916; Girl Scout.

Entered 1916; Treasurer Philodendroi Club 1918-19; Secretary Philodendroi Club 1919-20. Sweet is the word which describes her; loved by all who come in contact with her; a staunch friend and " a good pal. " RUBY LURENE PARKS Birmingham, Ala. Entered 1916; Honor Roll 1920. " A woman ' s crowning glory is her hair. " That Ruby has a disposition as sweet as her face is evident by her friendships. Whatever may be her ambition, we wish her the greatest luck in its realization. LUCILE PEASE " Ceil " Auburn, Ala.

Yes, " Ann Pot " is a fine girl and it doesn ' t take a new-comer long to find it out. She is of a scientific turn of mind; but the truth is. she seems capable of having any turn desirable, feeling at home at any task she encounters. DEWEY MAE PROCTOR " Dooey " Larkinsville, Ala. Entered 1915; Honor Roll 1916-17-18; Basket Ball 1916-17-18; Member of the Philodendroi Club. " But let me silent be, For silence is the speech of love. The music of the spheres above.

A. 1918-20; Member of Glee Club 1917-20; Exchange Editor Technala 1918-19; Girl Scout 1919-20.

MINNIE SLONE Hartsville, Ala. Entered 1917. A quiet, earnest, business-like girl is Minnie. She stars in home economics, in fact, all subjects she at- tempts. If for a middle name you ask, call her " Busy Bee. " OVELLA SMITH " Old Fellow " Fayette, Ala. Entered 1917; Girl Scout 1919-20. Ovella is one of the most sedate little creatures you have ever seen. She is quiet and unassuming but has such lovable, unselfish ways and such a sweet disposi- tion that she has won the love of every member of the Senior class. MARY FORE STUART " 4 " Camden, Ala. Entered 1917; Story Tellers League 1917-18; Glee Club 1918-19; Basket Ball 1917-18-19-20; Member of the Y. W. C. A. Poster Committee. The class will agree that Mary Fore is the truest, sincerest, and most thoughtful girl we have. She is mother to us all. Oh! her disposition: it is sweet, jolly, and always ready and full of fun. CARRILEA THOMAS " C. 77 ' Ashby. Ala. Entered 1916; President Story Tellers League 1916- 17; Basket Ball 1916-18-19-20; Captain Basket Ball 1918. She is friendly, pleasant; a good student, and an athlete; but her whole qualities are summed in the fol- lowing lines: — " A flower can not blossom without sunshine, neither can a friendship circle be complete without her acquaint- ance. " MARY ALICE WALKER Newbern, Ala. Entered 1916; Chairman Bible Study 1918-19-20; Ball Team 11917-18-19-20. We never saw a girl with more " pep " and energy.

" Jinks " never was known to have a grouch. She be- lieves strongly in " Laugh and the world laughs with you " and amuses herself by eating and arguing. " She would argue all night That black was white. Then prove to you That red was blue. " ANNIE MAE WALLE R " Lady " Cobbville, Ala. Entered 1919; Alabama Centennial Celebration 1919. Quiet, reserved, and almost cold is the impression one is likely to get of her. Yet those who know her best realize that she has a warm heart and that her aim is for higher things. KATE WHITFIELD " LittF Un " Entered 1917; Honor Roll 1919; Girl Scout 1919-20; Member of Y. W. C. A. 1920. Kate is very accommodating and neat in appearance.

Entered 1915; Vice-President Tutwiler Club 1919-20. Lyndall is a girl of rare charm and beauty. Her brunette type is most bewitching. She takes nothing seriously; withal, she has never been known to worry over anything. Class History, 1920 It is indeed a pleasant task to be allowed the privilege of writing the his- tory of the Class of 1920. Although we are few in number, we boast of being " right here, " as the slang term would put it, not with the quantity but with the quality. We do not claim to have done much for this great and greater grow- ing school, for we cannot be that presumptuous, when we consider how much the school has done for us. We came here, some of us four, and some even five years ago, inexperienced children, and now we are preparing to leave, trained women, ready to take our places in the great battle of life. Time for- bids me to give an individual history of each member of this class, therefore, I must confine myself to presenting it to you as the history of the group. When the doors of the A. G. T. I. opened on September 6, 1915, the Class of 1920 may be said to have made its advent. On that opening day girls poured into these halls from all over Alabama. They entered the A. G. T. I. as " rats, " or still worse, little " subs. " Yet these first days were very happy, for we had but few cares. It is true that many were homesick, but in a short time things began to settle down. The class then began in earnest the work which has culminated in the honors and privileges of Seniors. Most of the girls were strong and hearty, and went into athletics with all the force that was in them. They had a well organized basket ball team, and were said to have been the true founders of that old-time yell, which has followed us through the years — " Rickety, Rickety, Russ, We ' re not allowed to cuss, But never-the-less, you must confess, There ' s nothing the matter with us. " To these girls, also, belong the honor of choosing the glorious crimson and white, and not only selecting, but living up to our present motto. To give you some insight into the life of these pioneers, and also for the purpose of giving you in words the standards they have set and upheld, I will recall the chorus of our sub-freshman class song. It was sung with unusual enthusiasm. The spirit of it still lives in the class. " We ' re proud of our Subfreshman class (ra! ra!) We love the crimson and the white. Our colors bright we ' ll wave aloft, We ' ll raise them to the height. " The next year, to our disappointment, many did not return. But others came to take their places. This " bunch " of new girls found themselves in the midst of a class of enthusiastic, lively Freshmen, very proud of their new name. In the history of this class as Freshmen, we find them giving teas for the swimming-pool fund and engaging in base hall, basket ball, and other athletics. One of the most important events of the whole history took place that year. It was that delightful masquerade ball given in the gym- nasium in honor of their sister class, the Juniors. At last, and all too soon, our Sophomore year arrived. Though at this time, also, many former members did not come back, we held together through thick and diin, and organized ourselves into a band of loyal Sopho- mores, ready to fight the battles of solid geometry, fourth year high English, and history. That year we indeed " made a record grand. " We led in chapel, played in matched games, and got on the honor roll, too — at least some of us did. And the next year, how wonderful it was to be Juniors! We took a firm hold of Junior Hall under our president, Minnie McGowin. In taking our stand, we were joined by new members, who seemed helpless creatures as they found themselves under the necessity of casting aside high school senior- isms. But it did not take this band of girls long to show us what they were made of, because they brought not only ability along with them, but also the spirit needed in all class activities. Athletics continued to hold a large place in our minds, but above the sport life rose our desire for scholarship. Was not the new normal course to be first " tried out " on us? We Juniors proved to be quite necessary people to the welfare of A. G. T. I. in its intellectual and social feats. On every occasion we were called forth for service to visi- tors, teachers, and schoolmates. And when College Night came the Juniors presented a program which we are justified in being proud of, though we might have tried even harder had we not wanted to make the Seniors happy their last year. In spite of all the difficulties which eventually came with the pleasures, the Juniors waved their colors and sang loyally: " But soon the day of days will come, When Juniors take the lead. The class of " 20 makes things hum, All others will take heed. " The next September, our dream of Seniorism became a reality, for truly " all others did take heed " of the Class of 1920. Beside the names of these noted personages on the register, were found the room numbers 270, 281, 293, and so on, indicative of Senior Hall. And when we were seen to sweep proudly into the matron ' s office on Tuesday afternoon, we were not cross- questioned as to our business down town before being allowed to register, for everyone knew that Seniors could go to town any day except Wednesday. And oh! shall we ever forget those grand old times on Senior Hall? No, I am sure not a one of us ever shall. Our Junior Hall was a success, of course, how much more of a success was our grand old Senior Hall! Again we may be said to have been made objects for experimentation. Last fall the standards of the school were raised. For a member of the Class of 1920 to be exempted from final examinations, she must make an average of 80, instead of the previously established average of 70. Next in the history of this year of the Class, a change took place in the name of the school. It evolved from A. G. T. I. to A. T. I. and C. As a result of this change a new college song became a necessity. The thing which seemed, of course, the most probable to occur did occur, for two members of the Class of 1920 made themselves famous by giving to their Alma Mater what it so very much needed, the words and music of an A. T. I. and C. song. This was but one feature of the most memorable class program of College Night, 1920, records of which occur elsewhere in this volume. As we close the last chapter of the history of the Class of 1920, we antici- pate registering in the great school of life, where we shall take up the respon- sibilities of women. May each shoulder her responsibility bravely and bring glory and honor, not only to herself, but to her class, her college, and her nation. Lillian Jones, Historian, 1920 Senior Class Song i A class of jolly Seniors we, Who ' ve made a record grand. We never fail in loyalty, We all together stand. Chorus Here ' s to our crimson and our white, Which stand for all that ' s true and right. Here ' s to the purple and the gold, The standards we uphold. II Crimson for courage always stands; Each Senior has it too — White, we pledge our hearts and hands, To keep ourselves like vou. A. L. L.. 1920 Last Will and Testament of the Senior Class We, the girls of the graduating class of A. T. I. C. about to die, salute thee. We hereby declare this document to be our Last Will and Testament, and do make the following dispositions of our goods and chattels, effects and belongings; hereby revoking all other wills, heretofore, by us made. First: To our President, our sincerest devotion, earnest efforts, and faithful co-operation. Second: To our Dean, Miss Stallworth, a police force, namely, Execu- tive Board. Third: To the matrons, Mrs. Phillips and Mrs. Heatfield, our privilege of making beds, whistling on halls at all times, and running in case of necessity. Fourth: To Dr. Peck, all our ailments and, in addition, our pill boxes. Fifth: To Miss Shapard, our friend and guide throughout the months of trial and tribulation over practice teaching, our love and best wishes. Sixth : To Miss Mayes, all the future noises made on Senior Hall. Seventh : To Miss Houser, all our valued themes, term-papers, outlines, note-books, English text-books, complete volume of Chaucer ' s works, Spen- ser ' s " Faerie Queen, " and Milton ' s " Paradise Lost; " also our masterpieces of graphological art in the form of Scrolls; last but not least, all the red ink manufactured in the United States until June 1, 1950. Eighth: To Miss Evans, a pair of magic slippers which will enable her to reach Senior Hall of ' 21 most rapidly in case of the violation of any of the rules of our institution. Ninth: To Mr. Calkins, all the musical ability in the class of 1920. Tenth: It is with a feeling of sadness that we hereby bequeath to the Class of ' 21, our Senior responsibilities and our beloved Senior Hall. We trust that from it they will carry the same pleasant memories that we carry with us. Along with Senior Hall and our responsibilities, we will our privi- leges, especially those of going to town any hour of the day, and entertaining young men later than ten o ' clock any night of the week, a privilege which the Juniors so much envy us. Eleventh: To the Junior Class we leave also our honored and beloved seats in Chapel. We hope that each member will show her appreciation and gratitude by being in her place on time every morning. Moreover, we leave a friendly warning, " never give a backward look as you must remember that others may enter without the assistance of your glances. " We hope the class will adorn the seats and make them as attractive as they have been made this year. Twelfth : To our sister class the gay young Sophomores, we leave our art of keeping on the good side of the teachers, thereby saving much weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth, so often caused by failure on " exams " and disorderly conduct on the halls. This secret of ours will be greatly appre- ciated by the Sophomores, and we feel sure they will boast of the wonderful advice given by their older sisters. Thirteenth: To the Specials we bequeath our right to pull eye-brows, undisputed possession of " henna hair dip, " all remnants of paint, lip sticks, and eye-brow pencils, on the condition that each member of said class will use stated articles on a certain da y set aside as a memorial for Class of ' 20. Fourteenth: To the Freshman Class the right to mount the fourth round of the ladder of knowledge, sadly worn by upper classmen in the at- tempt to make a smooth part for them. Fifteenth: To our much beloved Alma Mater, we do bequeath our beautiful gift, whether this be a new auditorium, a skating rink, fountain, or any other such adornment for A. T. I. C, probably, a Concrete Path to the Palace of Pills. We hope that those who participate in the enjoyment that it affords will retain some fond and sacred memories of the Class of ' 20. In Witness Whereof, We the Class of 1920 do hereby set our hands and seals, and do declare this to be our Last Will and Testament on this the twenty-seventh day of April, nineteen hundred and twenty. Class of 1920 In the presence of: Zella Israel Sarah Johnson Prophecy of the Class of 1920 Turn forward the time to the year 1930, and a rainy April afternoon. This is the time that I am imagining finished and passed, yet not so far gone but that I can report all the happenings. This scene was at die home of Mrs. Raymond Helton, formerly Minnie McGowin. Several members of the Class of 1920 composed the jolly party of house guests for a week-end. Alda Nelson, Jean Cameron, " Gatch, " and I were these lucky representatives of the Class of 1920, but we longed to know the whereabouts of the others of our number. While Jean and Alda were carefully arranging select place cards of varied social events in their cherished memory books, Gatch brought out the Ouija board for me to help her find all possible information concern- ing our used-to-be " comrades in arms. " Ouija told us that Lonnie Mae Cathcart, our faithful president, was judge of the police court in San Francisco, still making use of her wonderful ability. Allene Bell was the supervisor at a reformatory in New York. Some members of the class had gone into lyceum work. Mary Pharr was in competition with Frieda Hempel. Mary was accompanied by Zella Israel on the piano, and Lucile Pease on the violin. Some of the girls had turned to the vaudeville, and others to the movies. Eloise West, Rebecca Paisley, and Annie Louise Noyes were with Keiths ' Vaudeville, and were great favorites as ballet dancers. Sarah Johnson, Thelma King, and Amy Phillips could not resist the temptation to be actresses, and were with the Metro-Company in pictures. As is always the case, some of the girls had become teachers. Annie Laurie Larkin was the dean at Sargent School of Expression. Mary Fore Stuart, Lucile Adams, and Bertha Nichols were teaching in a rural school in South Alabama. Lillian Jones had become instructor in a school of dancing in Boston. Two members had become missionaries. Ida Jackson was a missionary in China, and Annie Mae Waller, in Brazil. Jean Ford was a social worker in the slums of New York. Annie Philpot was a probation officer in Chicago. She had learned the qualifications for this office in Education 21, and was gaining great favor because of her unusual ability in this profession. Fannie Mae Hinton, Genie Walls, and Marjorie Narramore, who had always been together at school, could not be separated; so they had gone to Armenia to do relief work. The Bryant sisters had gained great honor in the north. Sadie Bryant was the private secretary to the President of the United States; Virginia Bryant was in grand opera as successor of Maude Powell. Mabel Hoskins was her accompanist. Mabel always played Annie Laurie Bullard ' s com- positions in solo numbers, for, needless to say, Annie Laurie had become famous as a writer of piano music. Mary Alice Walker had accepted a posi- tion of cateress in the President ' s household, and had won fame and distinc- tion by baking the handsome White House cakes. Kate Whitfield had be- come food supervisor for Smith College. Lillian Bell was letters and art editor for The Literary Digest, and Lillian Kendrick was editor of Current Poetry for this same periodical. Then came those who had been fortunate enough to change their names by marriage. They were Gladys O ' Brien, Ruby Parks, and Mary B. Carlton. In looking into the number of marriages, a sad incident was related by the magic board. Amy Bryant, who always had a long string of suitors, had kept up her popularity for a while following graduation, but after each had asked her to marry him, she could not decide which to take. She worried over the situation until her parents, fearing she was losing her mind, sent her to a sanitarium. Dr. Imogene Lee was the phyisician in charge of the hospital, and Maude Bibb the head nurse. But Maude furnished the patient with the true vitalizing force, because she gossips still. The next girls we learned about were Mary Willard Hall and Hattie Gibson. They were congress-women from Alabama, Mary Willard continu- ing to get in hot arguments as she always did in school. Marie Jones and Carrilea Thomas had established a beauty parlor, and their most frequent visitor was Frances Rutland, who could not refrain from trying to look pretty, altho she was destined to be an old maid. Annie Mary Jones-Williams was in Great Britain investigating her gene- alogy. Lyndall Woodall was in Canada. She was on her way to Alaska, but was making speeches in all the Canadian cities to induce women to bob their hair. Minnie Slone had become a home economics extension worker. Dewey Proctor was the successful representative of a syndicate of normal music course publishers. Angela Hamilton had become a model for a well-known designer of fashionable wearing apparel. Jessie Hall and Ovella Smith were greatly interested in feeble-minded children and had founded a new institution for the betterment of these un- fortunates. They were trying to carry out the plans of Madame Montessori, and they were continually writing to Miss Shapard for advice and sugges- tions. Edna Gilliland was still at A. T. I. and C. taking a post-graduate course in music. Artemise Mott had finally decided to specialize in biology, as a result of the great delight she used to take in dissecting worms and bugs. Thus, dear classmates has the ouija told your future. It is up to you to chan ge it for better or for worse. Evelyn Trawick, Class Prophet, 1920 Senior Souvenir (revised) Words by Music by Lillian Kendrick Minnie McGowin I In the State of Alabama At the A. T. I and C.

Calkins Miss Olive Mayes Mrs. Virginia S. Heath Miss Beulah Putnam Dramatic Club Senior Class Play j " The Battle of Maubila " was successfully presented by the Senior Class, November 17, 1919. T his event marked the first night performance of the initial play of a series of historical dramas of Alabama, written by Mrs. Charles M. Owen in commemoration of the close of a century of Alabama statehood. The theme of the play is based on the Spanish invasion of the Indian country, called by the European discoverers " Florida, " considered then to embrace much of the North American continent. The time of the action was the harvest season of the year 1540. This event marks the first coming of the whites into this region. The place was Maubila, the most important town of the territory governed by Tuskaloosa, an able and powerful chief of the Choctaw Nation. The location has been placed by most recent historical research upon the plains at die confluence of the Tombigbee and Warrior rivers, in what is now Greene county, about six miles from the town of Demopolis, Alabama. That the costumes and characteristics of the times and of the Spaniards and Indians depicted were effective will be recalled by all who saw the play and applauded the unusually good interpretation of the roles of De Soto and Rodrigo Ranjel, among the Spanish cast, and of the Indian roles, most notably that of Mochila, the wife of Tuskaloosa, and Athahachi, the chief ' s son. Alabama Centennial December 14, 1819 — December 14, 1919 The Senior play served as a very impressive fore- runner of the college celebration of the centennial proper. This event was a true ceremonial represent- ing original work of college faculty and students. The program consisted of two episodes anticipated by a prologue. The first episode, a pantomime, depict- ing a theme of pre-state days, entitled " The Passing of the Red Man, " and the second episode, a pageant, setting forth certain of the natural endowme nts and achievements of the state during the past hundred years, " The Advance of the White Man, " together with the prologue, were the compositions of Mrs. Heath. The musical setting, adapted for orchestral accompaniment, was contributed by Mr. Calkins. The entire production was put on under the direc- tion of Miss Ulmer, who, in addition to managing most of the stage business, designed many of the most attractive costumes. To Mr. Jones-Williams is due credit for the remarkable lighting effects, which made possible the illusions of moonlight, grey dawn, break of day, full day, twilight. To the assistance rendered by the department of Home Economics in getting ready a number of the costumes, to the finished Indian dance motif contributed by students under Miss Funk ' s direction, and to the stupenduous art problems worked out under the direction of Miss MacMillan is due a very great deal of the success of the stage craft. But upon the one hundred students and recent war veterans, including faculty and townspeople, depended the final success of the action. That everyone contributed to the making of this event an historical ceremonial of great significance was attested to by a packed house of appreciative on-lookers, who followed the story of " the first dwellers of this realm, " to the acquisition of the land by our ancestors, on through the symbolic representations of the state and her developed resources and capacities. So much for the conception of the ceremonial, the details of its " putting on, " and the personnel of its in- terpreters. Here perhaps it would be well to record a brief sketch of the two episodes as they were presented, together with the prologue, which established the atmosphere for both. In the moonlight, such as precedes the dawn, appeared the speaker of the prologue, Tsi ' stu, The Great White Rabbit, official announcer, according to Creek and Cherokee myths, of all important events and the bringer of day. This mythical hero foreshadowed the doom of the Red Man and prepared for the increasing success of the White conquerors. As he left the stage, Tsi ' stu invoked the dawn with his magic gourd rattle and at the same time evoked a forest scene near the present Talladega of more than a hundred years ago and into this scene he called the spirits of long dead Indian dwell- ers of this region. First, into the grey dawn comes from out the past a beautiful Indian maiden. She is joined by her father, an aged chief and warrior. Together they make the fire; together they salute the rising sun. Then comes the lover of die girl with the customary tribute, a freshly slain deer. But savage peace and security are soon dissipated. A runner brings news of the coming of the whites. The old chief counsels peace, but the bold young warrior insists upon battle. The Indian maid, torn between two loves, finally casts her lot with her aged father, and her lover goes away with his followers, plotting war. Shortly, the white invaders establish themselves upon the scene, having accepted the overtures of the old chief. Then comes a moon- light tryst between the lovers, which culminates in a shot fired by the old chief from the white man ' s gun at the defiant young warrior. This precipitates the Indian onslaught. In the confusion the young warrior kills the old chief. The unhappy Indian girl, believing this to be an act of malice, herself deals her lover a death blow. Then with stoic calculation she proceeds to take her own life in order to follow these two into the spirit world. Though dying, she adheres to the policy of her father by giving to the white leader the In- dian lands round about. As she does this, the remnant of captive Indians are marshaled across the scene, their arms bound and their faces turned to- wards exile in the West. Beginning in the dawn this Indian episode closes at the following dawn, a dawn symbolic of a new era. All traces of Indian days are blotted out and preparation is made for the admission of the white man ' s state, Ala- bama, into the ranks of the states which have preceded her into the Union, all symbolically represented. Now come, in ordered procession, tribute bearers, who lay their respective gifts at the feet of Alabama. Finally, Ala- bama ' s people one and all pledge themselves in a true spirit of service not only to her, but to the country of which she is a part. A spirit of patriotism dominates this scene over which preside the approving spirits of " the first owners of this fair land, " brought back as a supernatural audience, by their powerful champion, The Great White Rabbit. Executive Board of the Student Government Association Allene Bell President Ora Swann, Georgia Brown, Mary Pharr, Lillian Sharpley, Belle Quarles, Cora Lee Abernathy Active Members Annie Philpot, Lonnie Mae Cathcart, Camille Dowell, Virginia Baxley, Frances Sharpley, Ida Jackson Honorary Members Student Government Operative at A. T. I. C. W. Various forms of student government have been put to the test in colleges and universities over the United States. In some, the authority of the students is almost unlimited; and in others, the authority is greatly restricted. The system of self-government existing at the Alabama Technical Institute and College for Women may be said to fall between these two extremes. The organization of diis system is somewhat like that of die state govern- ment. At the head of affairs is the president, elected by the entire student body. She must be a girl of strong character, a girl who has the good of die college at heart. She is die chief executive, and, upon her as upon the governor of the state, depends to a considerable extent the success of die governmental machinery. The president is chairman of the executive board with which the dean of the college sits as advisor and councilor. The executive board consists of twelve members, seven of whom are active and five of whom are honorary. The active members are representa- tives elected from the four classes. Three members are from the Senior Class, two from the Junior Class, one from the Sophomore Class, and one from the Freshman Class. The honorary members consist of the four class presidents and the president of the Young Women ' s Christian Association. Thus, all the classes are individually represented, and the school as a whole is represented by the president. Proctors, who may be said to correspond to city policemen, are elected every two weeks by the students on their respective halls. Two proctors represent each hall and are responsible for the good conduct of their con- stituents. Each proctor is, however, a keeper of law and order not only upon her own hall, but over the college community at large. It is her duty to re- port all offenses and to see that the guilty are brought to justice. Every Wednesday night, each proctor submits to the executive board a report in which she makes note of any misdemeanor that she has seen during the week. Next morning a list of names of all persons who have violated any regulations is posted above a request that they appear before the executive board. On Thursday afternoon, at a regular meeting, the proctors come be- fore the executive board to be advised and instructed in regard to the carry- ing out of their duties. After this first meeting, a second one is held during which the executive board considers all cases reported. Before this body, those whose names have been posted for law-breaking during the previous week are tried. The culprit is given a chance to speak in her own behalf, and she is then dismissed to await notice of the action taken by the board. The duties of the executive board are threefold: legislative, judicial, and executive. All laws, amendments, or changes in the constitution must receive a two-thirds vote of the members of the board and the approval of the dean, before they are added to the constitution. The laws are not submitted to the student body at large. Perhaps here may be found one objection to this particular system of student government. The authority of the executive board extends over all campus, dormitory, and study hour regulations. This group has the power to deal with a student who breaks any rule. Offenses are punished according to a definite code. Usually when a student violates a regulation, she is fully aware of the pun- ishment which awaits her if detected. For instance, a violation of study hour regulation is punishable by an extra time of study in the chapel under the eye of a member of the board; for a self-granted leave of absence from the campus, a student is prohibited from leaving the campus for a prescribed length of time. The advantages of student government are numerous. In the first place, student government promotes democracy. No one particular class or division of the college population has absolute control. Each class is duly repre- sented by persons of its own choosing. A second advantage of this method of self government rests in the fact that it affords good training both for the governed and the governing. Through obedience to laws of their own making, students learn to appreciate more fully the value of state and national laws. Also, they feel more interest in upholding laws made by their chosen representatives than those made by officials of a different sphere who, they feel, are perhaps not always in sympathy with them. The honor of the students is brought into play here. They realize that they are the institution, that any indiscretion on their part will bring discredit upon this greater self. Thus, they learn to feel that the honor of the college depends upon the up- holding of their individual honor. The advantages of student government, however, are not confined to the students. The teachers, likewise, are benefited by it. In the first place, they are spared the responsibility of keeping order. They no longer need to be on the watch to stop violation of rules. In the schoolroom, they are aided also. The students, being acquainted with the value of laws in an organiza- tion, respect those of the schoolroom the more. Teacher government, out of the classroom, only offers students an oppor- tunity to test their ability to break rules without being discovered. They feel no interest in such rules from any other standpoint. In fact, they have the feeling that such regulations are made only to bodier and irritate them, hence they experience no particular prick of conscience when disobeying. In self- government, students feel that it is their duty to abide by the laws of their own making. Thus helping to make laws they come to see the necessity for law. Through the proctor system, too, they are given a more active part in the execution of these laws. They learn the hardship it works on their fellow- students when order is interrupted. All in all, self-government is much more desirable than teacher govern- ment. It inculcates in the student independence and initiative and helps a great deal toward developing leadership. In a school governed by the stu- dents, themselves, there is more loyalty toward the institution than there is under teacher government. There is less discontent and the justice of punish- ment is less questioned when inflicted by those of the individual offender ' s own status than when inflicted by teachers, whose authority is apt to seem more arbitrary. Thus, it would seem, that the best system for maintaining discipline in a college is some form of self-government. Helen Smith College Night 1920 College Night! The very words send expectant, doubtful thrills through one! And this year when the time actually arrived everyone was almost too excited to do anything intelligently. Girls trooped noisily into the dining room from all parts of the dormitory, and what a scene met their eyes! The tables in the room, laden with flowers and good things to eat, were arranged in long lines, with the colors of the different classes draped over them in such a way that one was reminded of so many different rainbows, each trying to outdo the other in brilliancy. The Seniors ' tables, which were in the center of the dining room, were separated from the others by ropes wrapped in red and white, and red and white streamers were draped from post to post and to the big light in the center. The effect was very artistic. The Juniors ' sections were on each side of the Seniors. Their colors were black and gold, and the color scheme was carried out by streamers of black and gold hung from the posts to an immense basket of jonquils in the center. In the west wing of the dining room were the Sophomores. Their tables were arranged in the shape of an " S " and purple and white paper fluttered from the ceiling making an arch- way, which separated their section from the others. The east wing looked like a cool, green bower and there the little Freshmen were seated at their tables with their green and white banner playing a conspicuous part. Alto- gether the dining room looked like a veritable fairy land. After everyone had become quiet a bell was tapped and the President of the Student Government Association announced the order of the program. The poems, which were given first were sparkling with wit and humor, and brought forth tremendous applause. The impersonations came next, and they were as different as any four " stunts " could possibly be, but no one could tell which was the biggest success. The Juniors presented Mile. Briseau and her cunning dancing dolls; the Sophomores, a dramatic panto- mime which ended when the hero clasped the maiden in his arms ; the Fresh- men, a Human Bill-Board, which portrayed all the necessities of college life; and the Seniors, a burlesque on the balcony scene in " Romeo and Juliet. " The toasts, which were third on the program, were given with a great deal of enthusiasm. The class songs came last and the roof of the hall almost trembled with the volume of sound which went up from so many fervent throats. After the contest was over, the judges retired, and at the end of a half hour ' s deliberation, returned amidst an anxious but hopeful applause. The spokesman, after some delay, reported that the judges had been unable to reach a decision, and that there was a tie for the first place between the Seniors and Juniors. Such laughing, shouting, and clapping of hands you have never heard! The Juniors wanted the Seniors to have the prize but the Seniors would not accept it, so die two classes unanimously decided to pre- sent it to their Alma Mater. The prize, which was an immense college ban- ner, was hung by the two class presidents, over the assembly hall door as an emblem of the good fellowship of the classes of 1920 and 1921. Lillian Sharpley 1920 Class Poem COLLEGE NIGHT Listen, my children, and you shall hear Of college night of yester-year What was done, who won the prize, And as you listen you ' ll open your eyes, And plan as you ' ve never planned before To keep this feast forever more. " ' Twas college night and all through the halls Every girl was a-stirring and answering calls, A-borrowing stockings, a shirt-waist or two, A sash or a skirt or a match for a shoe. Upstairs and downstairs they came and went Dolling and primping for the coming event. Giggling and whispering turned into a roar And you knew that for all a good time was in store. The dining-room vast was a wonderful sight With streamers a-flying, and candles a-light. Mrs. Jenkins had been more than thoughtful and kind To prepare the good eats on which we soon dined. Plans were worked out for a night of surprise With judges on hand to give out the prize. The green little freshmen were the first to take part With a song and some verse and a toast learned by heart. The Sophs then vainly for glory did seek, Although their cute stunts were extremely unique. The Juniors, so jolly, did wondrously render A program brimful of glory and splendour, From Homer and Gluck, who sang like two birds, To a song with original music and words. In the honest opinion of the just and the wise This same Junior class deserved well the prize. Then the Seniors presented their acts, tres jolie. And won the wise judges we plainly did see. When the Seniors, as victors, took the prize of the night We Juniors decided perhaps it was right ; As glories for Seniors would soon be passe, While Juniors look forward to that future day When they, as grand Seniors, in red and white bowers, Will plan better stunts and win fairer flowers. That future day has come at last. Glories for us will soon be passed. We take the victor ' s place as our due, And leave next Year ' s College Night, Juniors, to you! Annie Laurie Larkin 1921 Class Poem It was the fifteenth day of September, And nineteen sixteen was the year, That a hundred and twelve of us lasses Started our college career. That first session booked many trials, And it issued them one by one; But the brave Sub-Freshmen were never known To shirk, give up, or to run. Most of us came from the country; Many things we ' d never seen, Hence the big class of mischievous Freshmen Declared us uncommonly green. When we asked where trash was disposed of, " In the garbage can, " we were told. But when we mistook the fire escape For the trash can, we were called Bold! We formed a class, and went to work, Gritting our teeth like sin, In this struggle for learning, We were determined to win. At last the nine long months rolled by And we all went home to rest, With joyous hearts and minds care free For we had done our best. Oh happy day when we came back To dear old A. G. T. I.! Full often during vacation, For it we had heaved a sigh. That second year we accomplished much: Our genius began to grow; And we felt that on some future day A famous record we ' d show. At last we turned into Sophomores, This class of two and one, With every member loyal — Slackers? Not a one! As Sophomores on College Night We were destined to amaze, For we made our audience radiant And filled each heart with praise. But ' tis now with Junior energy We come this College Night And bring our spoils to prove to you Our victory in the fight. For Juniors it was on Thanksgiving Day Who pitched that score right up; And as soon as we play the Freshman team We ' ll own that loving cup. ' Tis a wonderful thing a Junior to be, To wear the black and gold; For every one knows we are sure to win, We are so strong and bold. Still we press upward and onward, With a cheerful and undaunted soul ; For our motto reads, " Higher, yet higher And ' over the top ' to the goal!

She entered a fashionable shop one morn- ing, her eyes bright and her face radiant. " Show me the negligee that ' s in the window, ' 1 she said. " Something for your trousseau? " asked the saleswoman, shaking out the lovely folds of georgette. " Yes, " replied Louise, with some confusion, wondering how the woman had learned her secret. She did not know that her happiness was written on her countenance. She bought the negligee, and many other soft, cobwebby things. Then she left the store. A few weeks afterward she was married to a young lieutenant in die United States Army. She lived at the post with him for nearly a year, and then he was ordered to France. Louise returned to her girlhood home. Another year passed. Then came the signing of die Armistice, and with it came to Louise the joyous anticipation of her husband ' s home-coming. She entered the shop once more. This time her eyes shone even brighter than before. " I have come to buy myself another trousseau, " she said, without em- barrassment. She was glad for all the world to know of her happiness. " My husband is returning from France, and I shall meet him in New York. " The saleswoman watched her as she walked down the street, telling her good news to all her friends. " She is a happy child, " she said, " A happv child. " And so the weeks sped by, each one bringing Louise nearer to the arms of her beloved. Christmas day arrived, but still no news from France. At dusk Louise was called to the telephone. " Is this Mrs. William J. Armstrong? " asked a strange voice. " You have a telegram, a telegram from the War Department: ' We regret to inform you that Lieutenant William J. Armstrong died of pneumonia on December 20, at Bourdoune-les-Bains, France ' . " Louise dropped the receiver, and sat staring at the telephone, trying to waken herself from this terrible nightmare. " Billie — dead — Christmas Day! " She remembered, with a groan, diat she had danced, joyously, on that day just one year ago. It could not be. Many times the War Department made mistakes. She would not lose hope. But time dragged on, and no contra- diction of the ill news came. Again, Louise visited the fashionable shop. Her form was drooping, her face was very pale, and her eyes were dull. She in no way resembled the " happy child. " She sat down and looked at the saleswoman. The woman gave a long look of sympathy in return, and then without a word, turned and brought out a suit of black. Elma Griffith Spring Flowers are fresh and hedges green, Cheerily does the robin sing, Winds are soft and sky serene, Welcome once more happy spring. River and fountain, brook and rill.

Jean Ford, 1920 The Higher Culture " Hey Anna, is you gwine ter church up to Brazil to night? " " Yes, Fs jest er gwine over ter Sis Mollie ' s ter see if she ' d come and keep de chillen fer me ter go. I lowed tother night I sho want gwine ter church no mo and keery all dem sleepy-headed younguns. " About half-past seven that night all the negroes on the plantation were going down the " big road " laughing and talking. Uncle Jake and Aunt Roxie had borrowed their master ' s wagon and mule to drive, for the old negro man ' s rheumatism was troubling him. Besides, Patsie had come home from Tuskegee, where she had been getting the higher culture, and she could not walk to church with the common band of negroes. She might perspire on her new taffeta dress or ruin the heels of her patent-leather pumps that had silver buckles on them. " Duck, you and Prudie put de hay in de wagon, and git dem two quilts from ' hind Bubber ' s bed and spread over hit fer you all to set on. Me and yo pa is gwine to set in dem two new split bottom cheers Bro Willie fotch over here terday. " " Ma, whore did you git dem cheers from? " " Prudie, ain ' t I done told you ' bout axin ' me so many questions. You know I swopped Bro Willie two turkeys last fall fer dem cheers. Whut ' s to come of dis new set of niggers dat ' s coming along, I sho don ' t know. Look at yo sister Patsie, been off up yonder to dat cemetery getting edercated. She come back home and can ' t even turn a hot hoe-cake of bread. I said tother day, ' Come on Patsie and hope yo old ma wash. ' ' No, I can ' t. I will get the polish off of my finger nails and anyway, I want to finish this little piece of tatting. ' Hit takes all I kin rake and scrape fer dat gal. She has ter have dem vanishing creams, ter put on dat flat nose of hers, and perfumes ter make her smell good. If she ' d use a little more soap and water, she want need so much finery. I sho don ' t know whut I ' m gwine ter do wid dat nigger. I bets Marse Lawrence will come down here ter morrow and give her a invitation ter meet Mr. Hoe and go ter de swamp and hoe corn. " Patsie called from the wagon, " Come on Mother and let ' s go to church and quit fussing or else we shall not get to church in time to hear the preacher deliver the benediction. " Uncle Jake and Aunt Roxie seated themselves in the two new chairs, Patsie, Prudie, Duck, and three of Cousin Bettie ' s children were seated in the wagon with four big watermelons. Patsie was regaling her admiring audience with tales of Tuskegee dormitory life, and the number of times she had hash each week. " Jake, I jest tel you hit sho is fine ter have a mule and wagon ter ride in, " commented Aunt Roxie on the side. " I wuz jest thinkin, so myself, Roxie. I tel you, let ' s try and make ' bout three bales er cotton next year and git us one. We is jest er gittin ' too ole ter walk ter church, and dey can ' t git along wid out us, fer I ' s a decon and you ' s one of the best sisters. " It was a hot night in June, and long, lank, flopped-eared Gena was getting tired of pulling so many negroes; so right on the top of Boykin hill, one-half mile from the church, she balked, and move she would not. Uncle Jake coaxed and persuaded that old gray mule, but she did not budge. He decided to use the raw hide on Marse Lawrence ' s pet, but it failed. The only thing to do was to get out and hitch the lazy rascal beside the road and go the rest of the way on foot. Each little pickaninny was crawling out of the wagon. Prudie, the first to alight, was several yards ahead of the rest on her way down the hill. She was " a fixing and atwisting " her new red calico dress and green sash, when old Gena, shaking her head to knock the flies, caught a glimpse of Prudie. That mule never did like that little " yaller gal " any too well, so she took out right after Prudie down the hill with Duck in the wagon and Uncle Jake hollowing " Whoa dare, mule! " Prudie, running for dear life, tumbled head foremost into a gully and was saved just as the mule dashed passed. But the rear second wagon wheel struck a stump and out went Duck and two water- melons in the ditch a little beyond Prudie. At this terrible bump old Gena stopped. Uncle Jake came down the hill, caught hold of the reins and gave Gena a good thrashing. After this the family went on to church as " quality " negroes should go, though their appear- ance was not in keeping with their role. Uncle Jake was provoked; Aunt Roxie was upset because she had got axle grease on her blue and tan striped skirt Miss Mary had given her for sweeping the yards. There was not much said as the wagon rumbled along until Patsie spoke, " Duck, I certainly was frightened when you fell out of the wagon. I thought surely you had broken some of your limbs. " " No, Sis Patsie, hit didn ' t hurt me, but hit busted two of dem fine water- melons dat we wuz er gwine ter eat when Mr. Percy Young come out ter de wagon ter ax you how you likes Tuskegee. " Patsie looked bored at this mention of her lover, but she made no comment. Old Brother Henry preached a heart-melting sermon for the sinner, an appeal for immediate repentance. But Patsie was paying very little atten- tion to the preacher, for there was a tall " yellow-hided sport " sitting across the aisle from her. This was Sam Carmical, who had been working " up yonder at Mussel Shoals. " Patsie punched Prudie an d said, " Prudie, you know Percy Young has never had such a good-looking suit as that one. Look at his pants, they are peg-tops, and his coat is full of pretty black buttons. I bet he got it in Birmingham at Loveman, Joseph, and Loeb; it is just the style. I wish that you would look at that sporty silk striped shirt and green tie. " Prudie only answered, " He certainly are dressed up, but I likes Mr. Percy Young de best. " Patsie raved on to Prudie, " But Percy is not as stylish and up-to-date. Just look at that ring on his little finger. I know he has just lots of money, because I saw him put four bits in the basket awhile ago. " " Das de way you is, Sis Patsie. You ' se falls fer looks, not de man. " " But Percy, hasn ' t a ring and a gold tooth. Sam has already given me a smile, and I know he wants to go home with me after church. " " Dat ' s de way you ' se is Patsie. Whut ' s you gwine ter do when Percy comes round after church? " " Oh, I ' ll er — er dodge him. " Brother Henry ended his sermon by asking for members. Prudie, Duck, and all of cousin Bettie ' s children went up and gave their hearts, souls, and bodies to the Lord. While this was going on, Sam slid over and sat down by Patsie. He asked to accompany her home after church, and made love to her until the preacher dismissed the congregation. Percy was standing outside the church door waiting for Patsie. But she was planning to go out the back door with Sam Carmical when old Aunt Lucy had to stop her and ask for a good recipe for baking a layer cake. Aunt Lucy had been commissioned to bring such a cake for the big dinner on Sunday. Patsie, anxious to get away, said, " Oh, Miss Lucy, I will write you down one and send it over by Duck tomorrow. I am in a hurry now. " But the interruption was too long. Percy, tired of waiting outside, came back into the church. Stepping up to the truant Patsie, he said, " Patsie, you sho do look good ter night. " " Thank you, Mr. Young, but I fear you must be nattering me. " " No, not a bit, come on round dis way fer I done borrowed Mr. Esten ' s buggy to kerry you home in. " " Er — er, Mr. Carmical is to accompany me home. " " Pat! I thought you said I could ' sist you home ter night. " " But er — er, I have consented to go with Mr. Carmical. " " Patsie, is you gwine ter treat me dat way? You know I loves you bet- ter dan dat nigger, and alius will. " " Oh, Mr. Young, he is to tell me something about diat nitrogen plant at Mussel Shoals and I can see you all the summer. He is so interesting and uses such good English until it is a joy to be in his presence. " Percy looked straight into Patsie ' s eyes and said, " Yes, I see, he ' s got dat higher culture, and I ain ' t. He wears peg-tops and silk shirts, and I wears my same old does. He wears a ring an ' s got a gold toodi, and I aint got neither. But Fs been a waiting for you ter come home from school all dis time, so we could have a good time. And er — er we might keep house, you — " Patsie turned to go with Sam Carmical who was standing over by the church steps, and left Percy with, " Good night, Percy, I will see you later. " Percy stood there in the dark hours of this miserable night. It was heart breaking to him to see another " nigger carry off his gal, " after he had planned to take her home in the borrowed buggy. Sam and Patsie trudged along the dark lonesome road. The owls could be heard hooting in the far-off distance, and the katydids were having a choir practice, each trying to out-do the other. The conversation was dragging a little now, as Patsie had told all about the Honor Board, its rules and punish- ments. " Mr. Carmical, will you please quit squeezing my arm. " " Now Miss Patsie, I am not hurting you, " replied the insinuating Sam as he slipped an offending arm about the girl ' s waist. At that Patsie gave Sam a " whop " he never forgot. They went along silently for a time until the irrepressible Sam decided to risk getting " sweet " again. " Dear Patsie, " he ventured, " I love you with all my heart. " " I don ' t care if you do. " " Really, I mean it Patsie; I am going to carry you back to Mussel Shoals with me. " " I don ' t guess you will. " " Dearie, what makes you treat me so? You know I love you truly. I will do anything for you, I will die for you. " " I had rather for you to live for me. " This flirtatious retort so delighted Patsie with herself that she stepped to the opposite side of the road to enjoy a smile. But as she did so she stepped in the wheel ruts and popped off the heels of her patent leather pumps, those of the silver buckles. This greatly disconcerted her, but she would not let Sam know it, for she had informed him that she did not need his assistance. Patsie was getting thoroughly disgusted. Why had she left Percy to come with Sam? What was Percy doing and thinking about now? If she had gone with him she could have ridden in a buggy and would have had the heels of her shoes preserved. Oh, why had she come with this repulsive city negro? Something deep down in her heart was saying, " Pat, all diat glitters is not gold " . She could see nothing in the darkness but Percy ' s face. Sam thrust his hands into his pockets and bragged while the disconcerted Patise floundered in her wrecked shoes. " Patsie, you know we could cut a high figger life in town and I keeps the dough all the time. Hear it? " " I bet it ' s all coppers. " But this bit of flirtation was never finished, for turning a bend in the road, they came suddenly upon Mr. Esten ' s buggy and Percy Young, about to unhitch the horse and go on his way. Jilted by Patsie, he had given ol d Aunt Lucy a greatly appreciated " lift " home. " Oh, Percy, " called Patsie in irresistible tones, " I ' ve just had an accident to my pumps, will you take me home? " She did not wait for the surprised Percy to reply, but with marvelous agility she bounded into the vehicle, took the lines and had the horse in motion before her lover had regained his seat. The gaudy town " nigger " gaped down the road into the darkness after rattling wheels above which sounded the happy laugh of a seeker of " the higher culture, " who had waked up in time. Mary Fore Stuart, 1920 Lullaby i Close your eyes ray little baby. Lay your head on mammy ' s breast. While the stars are watching o ' er thee And the world has gone to rest. II Go to sleep my pickaninny. Dream your dreams of things to be Never must you have a worry While your mammy ' s watching thee. Ill Mammy ' s always going to keep thee, Safe from all the cares and harms That perchance might overtake thee. Folded in these big black arms. IV So don ' t you fret my precious baby, For your mammy still is nigh; Only think of joys and pleasures While she sings her lullaby. Annie Mary Jones-Williams. 1920 The Treasure of Silas Marner Ah, my gold, precious gold that I wanted And found at my life journey ' s end, Gold that I waited and longed for, Lay safe by the road, at its bend! We are all of us sometime misers, But know not until it is late That the gold that we thought was life ' s treasure Is the glitter on the river of hate. But, now that I ' m old and I ' m gray, And life ' s sweet end is in sight, I know that my treasure lay. In the glint of her curls in the light. I found my treasure of gold In the curls of a wee bit of joy; In a human heart of love. Not hard, cruel gold and alloy. Frances Sharpley An Attempt Write a poem, you bid me do? I can ' t ! Write in verse and rhyme it, too? I can ' t! I heard what other poets sing, And thought it was a simple thing To write a rhyme. I tried, and so I find that I was right to know I can ' t! Elsie Mahaffev An Ideal Girl i An ideal girl to me Should have the hair of Elma G. ; Her eyes like two bright stars should shine Like Joy Bryan ' s, — Aren ' t they divine? II A shiny nose I do despise Or one too large or small in size. Now Noona Bibb, as you can see, Has as pretty a nose as Norma T. Ill For a " Cupid ' s Bow " mouth petite Miss Moseley has the whole school beat; Camille Dowell of the Junior girls Has teeth like rows and rows of pearls. IV The complexion should be soft and white. Milk and peaches, combined just right; Lillian S. we think has much The kind of skin we love to touch. V For form divine, our dear Madge A. Could fill the bill I ' m inclined to say And as for style, Sarah Will B. Is a fashion plate from Gay Paree. VI From Evelyn Scott you may always expect Depth of mind and bright intellect; And, as for Lucile Crabtree ' s bit, She is the very soul of wit. VII Frances Singleton is a girl you ' ll find With good disposition and manners combined; But personality is a rare treat That goes hand in hand with Marguerite. VIII Now all the qualities named above Would make the girl we all would love; " A perfect woman, nobly planned To warn, to comfort, and command. " May Love Who in thunder could make such a blunder As to fall in love in May? If you only knew the troubles for you, You ' d fall out of love the same day. May love seldom lasts through the winter ' s cold blasts As many are led to believe. Beware of the chap who tries to entrap And do not let him deceive. It is better than mated to have your heart weighted. If it seems not quite to stay, With lead or with steel, with woe and with weal, Than lose it in love in May. Clifford Elliot, ' 19. With Apologies to Poe Once upon a midnight dreary, we were talking weak and weary Of the hard examinations stood the day before. While we murmured, never thinking of the noises we were making. Suddenly there came a rapping, as of some one gently tapping. " Tis the wind, " I muttered, " blowing on my chamber door: Only this and nothing more. " Ah, distinctly I remember, how the moon shone in my window. And each separate chair and table, cast a shadow on the floor. Eagerly we wished the morrow, when there ' d be an end of sorrow, For that everlasting horror of exams would then be o ' er, Over then and not before. So again we went on talking of the time when we ' d be walking Jumping gaily, bounding care free, up the steps of home once more. But our whispers soon grew stronger, we remembered then no longer, That the lights had winked and vanished a full hour or so before, May be that and may be more. Soon again there came a tapping as of someone gently rapping. Very evidently rapping, somewhat louder than before. " Surely, " said I, " some one tapped. I must this mystery explore, " But instead I crouched beneath the covers terror struck and muttered, " ' Tis the wind and nothing more! " But in this I was mistaken, and I felt quite all forsaken, For before me stood the figure of a teacher in the door. Not the least obeisance made she; hesitated not nor stayed she But with mien of lord or lady, " sat " on me as oft before: Merely this and nothing more. But her words went like a dagger to my heart and made me stagger, Stagger backward in the darkness to my tousled bed once more. Then the silence was unbroken, not a single word was spoken, And the stillness gave no token that my heart was sad and sore, Till I pledged with soul-felt fervor to the solemn darkness round me, " Never, never more! " Lillou Burns Student Government ] " As Freshman green, " So said our dean, " Her actions were absurd. " She did her best To lead the rest — Of proctors she had never heard. II Her joy soon passed; She was caught at last — The price in full she paid. But all the blame For all her shame On the Honor Board she laid. Ill As a Sophomore Her faults thought o er. She tried to mend her ways. Some rules she broke, But when she spoke The Honor Board she ' d praise. IV Her duties done; She ' d have her fun, But mostly that allowed. When we met her here. In her second year, Of the Honor Board she was proud. As a Junior gay- She went her way — An honor member bold. She did her best To make the rest Do just as they were told. VI The rules she kept, That is, except A very, very few. She only did As she was bid — That which was right to do. VII The Senior high With quick, keen eye Did act as president. That " fresh " of old Oh, now behold In Student Government. VIII Beside the dean, (Who we have seen Is the " power behind the throne " ) Now she must hear The sighs of fear Of those who stand and groan. IX This lesson hear, O reader dear, Of Student Government: Of all the rest, Those who know it best Think it most excellent. Elsie Mahaffey The Symptoms i " If there are bats in your belfry that flut.

" Surprised quite at such strange fright All ask with bated breath, " Where dwells the lady you so dread. In life is she or death?

' With Apologies to Rudyard Kipling A girl there was and she dressed her hair (Even as you and I), With a rat and a puff and a hank of hair (Some thought her a woman who did not care), But the girl thought herself a lady fair (Even as you and I). Oh the hair she tangled and the looks she mangled (With this work of hand and mind!) Belong to the woman who did not know (And now we know she never can know), How frightful it looked behind. A girl there is and her face she tints (Even as you and I), Red and white with a sure intent. And it proves the opposite the lady meant, But a girl must follow her natural bent (Even as you and I ) . Oh the beauty she lost and the money it cost! The artificial things she tried Belong to the woman who didn ' t know why (And now we know she ' ll never know why) Her youth and beauty died. The girl has lost her wealth of hair (Even as you and I), Which she might have kept by treating it fair (But never a bit did this girl care), She can no longer think her a lady fair (Even as you and I ).
