(StoSjSfotm Sewanee Sewanee ' s cliffs are laurel-crowned, And hills and road and bower Are brimming full of beauty When the laurel is in flower. The four great winds of heaven come And burrow in the bloom. And year by year for laurel Sewanee finds more room. Sewanee ' s brows are laurel-crowned. And each of us has power To high Sewanee ' s laurel-wreath To add another flower. The four great winds of heaven Shall blow abroad her fame; So live that in her laurels One laurel bears your name.

(6) KP a wMsmsmm: (7) CA-P 5 GOWN CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF DEBT CAMPAIGN (8) CAP Paying Sewanees Debt HE campaign for the payment of Sewanee ' s debt originated in reality in connection with the selection of Bishop Knight for the post of Vice-Chan- cellor. From the first mention of the matter to him he insisted that he would not undertake the tremendous task unless it was agreed on all sides that the finances of the University should be mended in order that his whole attention might be centered on advancing its interests instead of groping in a cloud of unsatisfied past obligations. His point was acceded to and the idea took more definite shape while the Vice- Chancellor was on a visit to Texas with the football team in the fall of 1915 and was urged by the Cleveland boys and others. Returning to the Mountain, Bishop Knight laid plans for the holding of a convention in Chattanooga on Washington ' s birthday, to be preceded by a personal visit by him to the principal cities of the dioceses of the church affiliated with the University. Accompanied by Mr. David Shepherd and Mr. Leland Rankin, he started on his journey the first week in January, 1916, and when he returned to his office over a month later the South had been very thoroughly traversed. At each stop the representatives of the alumni and the clergy were gotten together, largely as a result of letters that had been written ahead and wide publicity which had been given by the newspapers. Some- times a dinner or luncheon was arranged, and sometimes it was a simple meeting, but in each instance Bishop Knight clearly presented the condition of the finances of the University, together with an earnest appeal for assistance and a glowing account of the possibilities if proper support were given, concluding always with an invitation for a delegation to be sent to the Chattanooga convention. The result of this swing around the circle was that tongues were set talking about Sewanee, and at Chattanooga there gathered on Washington ' s birthday a fine body of more than a hundred of the leading men of the South, all bent upon one mission, the lifting of the debt of the University of the South. That date and city had been selected because of the founding of the University of the South grew out of a meeting held on a patriotic holiday, July 4, 1857, at Lookout Mountain. Strong speeches were made by Bishops and laymen, and before adjournment a pledge had been made by those present to raise the three hundred thousand necessary by June 1 , and a considerable part of the sum had been subscribed. A campaign for the balance was proposed, a central com- mittee was named, and a fund for the expenses of the work was underwritten by in- dividuals. Following the Chattanooga convention, the central committee, with Bishop Knight at its head, opened offices in Walsh and undertook the task of reaching those who might be interested in the University. Attractive publications were gotten out. countless letters were written, and, later, bulletins were issued and scattered broadcast, showing the (9) G PS GOWN progress of the subscription-getting. Frequent meetings were held by the central com- mittee in nearby cities, and in the latter stages speakers were sent to such points as seemed slow in responding. Early in May a survey of reports showed that over two hundred thousand dollars had been signed for, and then began the final redoubling of efforts in all directions. By the generous actions of close friends of the University in the last days, the total amount was raised by June 1 , and the success of the movement was announced and acclaimed at Commencement. It is impossible to give the names of those who made this success possible. Any attempted list would be interminable and unfair at best. From every diocese, almost from every parish, from Philadelphia and New York and from distant parts of the world, assistance came, swelling the total ever higher, until the line was crossed and the promise of " all or none " was redeemed, making all pledges available. Look around you. The difference this financial campaign has brought is apparent on every side. There are more students in the University and in S. M. A., and the name of Sewanee has been heralded far and wide as it never had been before. Cheer- fulness is a characteristic of the atmosphere, and there are no clouds in the sky. Sewanee, dear old Sewanee, has cast aside the habiliments of youth and is marching in her maturity along with the bravest and best. (10) The New Sewanee I O one who has been wont to associate the renowned Sewanee Spirit with the " good old days of Skinny Shipp " and football mass-meetings the night before Thanksgiving, it was perhaps something in the nature of a revelation P Z_y ' )8iM to see how real and tangible a thing it is as manifested in the debt cam- paign last spring. We students are too prone to think of this justly celebrated spirit only in its relation to athletics, forgetting its relation to the University as a whole, and its wider scope in that relation. The alumni are in a better position to get the proper point of view as evidenced by their indefatigable efforts under the efficient management of Bishop Knight in raising the University deficit. But now that we have it, what are we going to do with it? We feel confident that the administration which has showed itself so competent in raising the fund will apply its energies just as ably in carrying Sewanee on to the great and good things that are destined for her. Most people think that Sewanee will never grow into a large institu- tion. Well and good. The need for the small university has never been felt more urgently or recognized more universally than at the present time. Let us, then, see to it that Sewanee occupies the front rank in that sphere for which she seems to be so ad- mirably adapted. She has accomplished great things in that sphere, of which fact abun- dant evidence is found in contemplating the list of great names that are interwoven into the history of Sewanee. We can hope for no greater achievement than to live up to the noble examples that are furnished us out of the past of the institution. Any institution of learning is judged to a certain extent by its alumni. It behooves us then, who are in active attendance at the University, to make the most of our golden opportunities, that, in after years, when the responsibility of preserving the fair name of our Alma Mater rests upon our shoulders, we may be, in some humble degree, worthy of the trust incum- bent upon us. Whatever may be the position Sewanee attains in regard to the size of her student body, let us never forget the end for which she was founded and for which she has stood so gloriously throughout the sixty years of her existence — the formation of Christian character. We are now in a position where we expect to be able to push on to greater and nobler accomplishments. Let us discard what of the old is useless, let us adopt what of the new is for the advantage of the great cause of education, but let us never fail to remember that supreme end of all education for which this, the University of the South, has striven so nobly and which it has achieved so well. (II) C WPS GOWN BOARD OF REGENT. ' (12) C JP o GOWN CfiDEMIfflEPT (13) G JP fi GOWN Sewanee ' s Ghosts WTURALLY, Sewanee has her ghosts — not A ghost, but ghosts! I do not know if anyone of this generation sees the Headless Dog or the Perambulating Professor; but if he does, he wears his hair pompadour, you may be sure. The Headless Dog, as older boys will remember, had his walk between the present printing office and Miss Johnnie ' s old home, Palmetto. He was white as to body, and nothingness as to head — literally nothingness; for Twiggy Branch once struck with a cane the place where a head should have been, and never quite recovered from the shock of finding empty space. The Perambulating Professor haunted the road from where Professor Tidball lives to Green ' s View. He was a sociable ghost, though a silent one; and his habit was to walk, shoulder to shoulder, with any belated student who might find business along that route, late at night. It is true that no one ever remembered what the business might have been, after the Professor joined him; it is also true that the student made what is tech- nically known as " tracks " immediately upon finding that he was not alone on that solitary road; but the Professor was " some little runner " also, and finally disappeared of his own accord instead of merely being outdistanced. All this may have had something to do with the unusual fraternal spirit of that particular frat, that once owned a house, in which they held their meetings, out that way. They always returned to the supply store in a body. That frat house was haunted, too. It made no difference with what care everything was restored to order at the close of their meeting, the first man there the next morning would always find at least four chairs drawn up to the table, and a subtle odor that, in some indefinable way, suggested the nocturnal presence of departed spirits ! But the " Crying Baby " ! That was an uncanny ghost, if ever there was one. This ghost haunted the old chapel steps, and cried and wailed with a small, pitiful voice that sent the cold chills up and down the spine of the boldest. Scornful ones might scoff, and the skeptical laugh (by daylight) ; but there were too many witnesses to permit any theory of hallucination; and, furthermore, I saw that myself, in company with another man! A crowd of us had spent the evening together at Mrs. Wilmerding ' s, and the closing discussion of the evening was on the subject of " ha ' nts. " We were all keyed to a high pitch of receptivity; and when " Camille " and I left for the dormitory we carried the discussion further. We were commenting on the well-authenticated story of the Crying Baby at the moment when we passed the chapel. The night was inky black, and we had each other by the arm for support — moral and physical, I may as well confess, for it was a veritable witches ' night. Suddenly there sounded a low, plaintive cry. Being on the left of " Camille, " my arm hugged to his breast, I felt his heart cease beating for an instant and then race. We stopped dead in our tracks, cold, but sweating profuseyl I said something to " Camille, " but my words were voiceless. And then — ten or fifteen yards away, approaching slowly, (14) was a baby in long clothes. Its little face was as colorless and gleaming white as its dress; and it glided, or floated, towards us a foot or more above the ground. " Camille " was a tall, handsome, Byronic-looking fellow, and anything but what his nickname might imply. I have seen his courage tested ; but at that moment I leaned against a shattered reed! And, believe me, I was doing some leaning! To be explicit, my arms were twisted about him so tightly that he breathed in gasps — and so did I. 1 hen the ghost spoke! It said: " Good ebenin ' , gen ' men. " A very dark-colored woman, wearing a dark dress, accentuates a white apron with the bib turned up!

And the sunbeams kiss the lilacs And the violets in between — Then it ' s good to be in S ' wanee Just to dream the time away. And watch the flash of butterflies Across the park all day. Slowly comes the Springtime Up the valleys deep and wide, Bearing freshness long before it Like a great and emerald tide. Then it breaks in all its splendor On our wind-swept mountain-top Like a mist from some far country — - Prester John ' s or Camelot. Then the nights are filled with singing And the moons a dream of pearl. And the sunshine of the daytime Adds a glory to the world. Oh, it ' s great to be in Sewanee When the grass is getting green, And a fellow scents the lilacs With the violets in between. (28) SENIORS (29) Class of 1917 Officers J. M. Scott President D. H.

Mr. Finney entered the University in 1885, and specialized in chemistry. He was a mem- ber of Sigma Epsilon and of the A. T. O. fraternity. Upon leaving the University, he became associate chemist at the Virginia Experimental Station. Later he was chemist of the Virginia Department of Agriculture. Mr. Finney has always been deeply interested in the work of the Church, more especially as related to young men. He was a commercial chemist from 1891 until he accepted the office of Southern Field Secretary of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew, to which he has since devoted himself. Besides this, he is an influential member of the Board of Regents. (62) ' GOWj Mr. D. A.

Having been graduated from the Sewanee Grammar School, he entered the University in 1895. He was a member of Sigma Epsilon, and won the French Medal in 1897. Upon receiving his degree, he taught for a year in the Baylor School in Chattanooga, leaving there to become headmaster of St. Andrew ' s School, Fort Worth, Texas. In 1904 he accepted the position of English master in the Sewanee Grammar School, where he remained for five years. When the office of Alumni Secretary was created in 1913, he was unanimously elected to fill it, and in this capacity he has acted with distinguished success. (63) QXPS GOWN At Christmas in Sewanee The bells intone the deathless song of love Which drowses down along the evening air, Insistent, murmurous, a rippling snare Of intermingled themes. A single dove Wings forth from Breslin Tower. Far above The stars are smiling down. They have no share In startled wonder. Things are told of up there Which this bewildered bird is witless of. I close mine eyes and peace is in my soul And music in mine ears. Upon my lips A prayer, long unused, is born again. The bells, the bells how solemn-sweet they toll! Oh, Breslin, Breslin, youth too quickly slips And Christmas dies too soon in the hearts of men! Sewanee in the Month of May The pale and perfumed locust flowers have spread The vague enchantment of the odorous Spring, And subtle languor creeps on everything. The sun has risen from his gilded To flash in gorgeous splendor overhead. The lads reluctantly are listening To hear the bell of Breslin Tower ring. Or " cramming " lessons incompletely read. The air is soft and bright with sunny hours And scented with the breath of many flow ' rs; One cannot look but gladly on the day. With what delight upon the grass I lie And drink the air and gaze upon the sky! It is Sewanee in the month of May.

The Saturday before we went to Lexington, Vanderbilt beat Kentucky State to the tune of 45 to 0. The result on us was that we went up there expecting to " ride a crip. " As is usually the case when such large expectations are in evidence, we were grievously surprised to be held to a to tie. That began the avalanche of dope that gathered against us all season. This surprise, however, was not an unmixed evil, for it took out of the team what- ever of overconfidence there was in it. Our next opponent was to be L. S. U., who claimed to have one of the best teams in this section. They were not altogether with- out justification, either, as their subsequent record shows, since Sewanee was the only team in the South to defeat them the entire sason. Once more the combination of Coach Cope ' s good coaching and the earnest determination of the team was successful to the extent of a 7 to victory. The next bout to be staged was the battle with Alabama. No alibis were necessary for our 7 to 6 defeat, for we just naturally ran up against one of the best teams in this part of the country. Old Man Luck ran against us in the matter of injuries, as an excep- tionally large number of our best men were laid out with injuries, some o f them of so serious a nature as to debar the unfortunate recipient thereof from further participation in the gridiron activities of the season. Coach Spiegel ' s squad of Moccasins came to the Mountain the next week, counting on victory and discounting the reports they had gotten of the large number of Sewanee regulars that would be out of the game. At that time, we had six regulars out of the game, including the captain, because of injuries received in the Alabama game. The (83) G JPo GOWN final score of the ensuing track meet was 54 to 0. The team of scrubs that was sent in in place of the incapacitated regulars fought like seasoned old timers, and, as one wit of the Mountain told Coach Spiegel, the only thing the University of Chattanooga could be congratulated for was the way in which its band played. On the following Saturday, the Tiger invaded Chattanooga to play Tennessee. This aggregation had surprised the whole South the week before by administering a 1 to 6 defeat to Vanderbilt. Our game with them was one of those in which the teams were evenly matched and the break of the luck decided the game. If Sewanee could have retained some of the luck that had been hers the Saturday before, the final score would have been 1 4 to 6 in her favor. As it was, Tennessee scored one beautiful field goal and two touchdowns on intercepted forward passes, making the final score read 1 7 to in her favor. With this array of dope against us, we departed the Mountain for the City of Opportunity to play Vanderbilt in the annual Turkey Day contest. Vandy had beaten everything in the South with the exception of Tennessee, even to the extent of administering a sound beating to old Virginia. The adherents of Black and Gold were confidently expecting a thirty-point victory, even going so far as to wager a few of their hard-earned kopeks to that effect. The team that stepped on Dudley Field that afternoon, although some of our regulars were again out of the game on account of injuries, was a far different team from any that had represented Sewanee all season. Such is the psychology of the Thanksgiving game. After a week of hard secret practice, every man went down to Nashville intent on giving all he had in defense of Sewanee ' s fair name. Really, at that time, all we could hope for was a good defense against the Vanderbilt team. The astonishing result was that Vanderbilt was outplayed in every department of the game, so far outplayed that even her own coach was forced to admit that she was lucky to get away with the to tie that terminated the game. No matter how this score looked in the papers, it was a virtual and signal victory for Sewanee, and her devotees rejoiced accordingly. In accordance with the tradition that counts every season a success which beats Van- derbilt, let us give the name of success to the 1916 season. We lose only two men by graduation this spring, so that at present, the prospects for next year ' s team are very rosy. We will have a team that is largely composed of men who have played together three years on the team, and will have every ambition to round out their four years together with an exceptionally fine season. Let us add, by way of making the prospects a bit rosier, the heartfelt wish that Coach Cope will be with us once more to sustain his nation- wide reputation by turning out the best team Sewanee has ever had.

His All-Southern berth was well earned by his wide reputation of being the best defensive end in the South. PERRY, Guard — " Yancey " was a very important unit in that stonewall line for which Sewanee was noted last season. His choice as next season ' s Captain was a wise one, and we look for another invulnerable line. SCOTT, Center — " Marley " rounded out his gridiron career with a magnificent display of defensive ball all season, and his accurate passing contributed in no small degree to the scoring ability of the team. CLARK, End — " Hec " was the most consistent player on the field, and his punting was unexcelled by any of his opponents all season. When forced to finish the season at quarter, he demonstrated his versatility by playing that position equally well. WORTHAM, Halfback — " Pep " found his long suit in these wide end runs and returning punts. His All-Southern selection was eminently deserved, and we are looking for a world-beater next season. (86) The Letter Men HERRING, Quarterback — " Doug " was one of the brainiest little quarters ever seen on Hardee, as well as being a powerful runner and no slouch as a drop-kicker. His loss was felt keenly by the team when injuries in the Alabama game retired him for the season. RUCK.ER, Guard— " Nap " certainly knew how to handle those hams of his on defense, and was equally good on perforating the enemy ' s line for his backs. We hope he will be able to return to keep up his fine work next year. SELLERS, Halfback — " Speed " was one of the individual stars of the South last season. He was particularly fine at running the ends and slipping through the line. We regret very much that he will not be with us next year. CRUDGINGTON, Halfback — " Doc " and his huge strides tore off many a yard for the Purple. He was very strong on short end runs and off tackle, and was a regular Hawkshaw at cutting down. LEFTWICH. Fullback — " Dog " was cut off before the big games by injuries, but while in the game he showed great ability at hitting the line. His baseball ability made him a past supreme master of the forward pass. (87) CAP 5S7GCfWN The Letter Men ARNOLD, Halfback — " Blood " did his native heaths of Chicago proud by bucking the line for ten and twelve yards at a clip. He was Johnny-on-the-spot when it came to defense, being very accurate at cutting down the interference. BETTLE, Center— " Snide " cavorted all season on backing up the line. With him back for a pivot, the team next year ought to have little trouble building up an impenetrable defense. MOSS, Tackle — " Gus " played an equally fine game on offense and defense. He could be depended upon at all times to open an adequate hole leading to the acquisition of the coveted territory. MEANS, Guard— " Fred " never showed any reluctance to soil those blonde locks of his when it came to being all over the field. He and his side-partner. Moss, comprised a pair of linemen without peers in the South. LYMAN, End — " Eh " showed exceptional ability at covering punts and diagnosing plays. On defense his opponent was usually conspicuous by his absence, quite often with the whole interference. (88) CAP The Letter Men BROWN, Tackle — " Coon, " this small boy from Texas, showed all sorts of speed and certainly made his opponent lead a dog s life. We hope Cuero will be able to spare him another year or so. ANDREWS, Halfback — " Charlie " was one of the hardest run- ners on the field. He was always in the game, trying hard, and we expect great things from him next year. BRALY, Tackle — " Cherub " was a consistently hard-playing line- man all season. He also shows promise of being one of the greatest drop-kickers in this section of the country anolher year. STONE, Fullback — " Monk " was handicapped to a certain extent by injuries early in the season, but was certainly fine on hitting the line. On defense, he was one of the hardest and surest tacklers seen on Hardee in a long time. KING, Tackle — " Bill " was a fearful stumbling block in the path of his opponents in every game he played, and his part of the line was seldom attacked with any degree of success. U ' OODALL.

A. of Nashville and one with Morgan School of Fayetteville, had to be called off on account of rain and snow. The first game of the season was with the University of Chattanooga on the 10th of April. Captain Riner pitched the first game against them and won easily by the score of 6 to 0. Crudgington pitched the next afternoon and won by the same score. The following week, Easter week, Coach Heisman brought his bunch of Jackets from Georgia Tech to the Mountain for a two-game series. Riner and Crudgington pitched the two games and would have won with a little more support from their teammates. We lost (95) C sJPo GOWN The 1916 Season— Continued both games, 2 to 1 and 3 to 2. Tennessee came up the third week of April and showed the best bunch of college players seen by a Sewanee crowd in many a day. They won both games, 3 to and 6 to 1 . Coach Jones began to work his men hard for the trip to Mississippi. The games with Alabama had to be called off on account of an epidemic of fever there. Mississippi A. and M. agreed to take the open days, so the team left for Starkville immediately. After ten innings of free hitting, Sewanee won the first game of the series, 9 to 8. The heat was so great that Riner and Crudgington had to divide the time on the mound. Payne made his debut into college ball the next afternoon and pitched a beautiful game, only to lose on account of his teammates ' misplays, 4 to 2. A. and M. won the third game of the series, 7 to 6. This was a bitterly contested game and went to ten innings. The team next went to Oxford to play the University of Mississippi. Again Sewanee lost two games by one-run margins. All the breaks went against the Tigers in these two games, and the defeats must be charged to Old Man Hard Luck. The team returned from the trip in good condition and began work for the last two games of the season, a series with our ancient foe, Vanderbilt. Crudgington pitched the first game of the series, and it was a wonder from start to finish. The game lasted twelve innings and was won by Vandy when Rabbit Curry beat out an infield hit and stole his way around for the lone and winning tally. Riner pitched the next day and lost a beau- tifully pitched game by the score of 4 to 3. On the retur n of the team to the Mountain, Dr. and Mrs. Benedict entertained the letter men with a banquet. The fortunate ones were Riner, Payne, Crudgington, Clark. Wortham, Ellerbe, Cochran, Herring, Bowden, Bruce, Lear and Leftwich. At the banquet Leftwich was elected Captain for 1917. 1917 Baseball Schedule April 11 and 12 — University of Michigan, at Sewanee April 16 and 17 — Mississippi A. and M., at Starkville April 18 and 19 — University of Alabama, at Tuscaloosa April 20 and 21 — Georgia Tech, at Atlanta April 27 and 28 — Open May 4 and 5 — Open May 9 and 10 — Kentucky State, at Sewanee May 16 and 17 — Kentucky State, at Lexington May 18 and 19— Vanderbilt, at Nashville (96) The Letter Men RINER — - " Jew " had the duties of Captain to contend with as well as the pitching burden, and he handled both ends of the job exceedingly well. He pitched a fine game of ball all season and ranks as one of the best pitchers in college baseball. " Jews " main stock in trade is the spitball. and the manner in which he handles the moist delivery ranks him as a coming Ed Walsh. LEFTWICH — His first year out, " Dog " was compelled to play first base, and put up a magnificent game in that position. The difference was readily apparent, however, this season when he was allowed to play his chosen position behind the bat. " Dog " has a peg that it is seldom permitted a fan on an amateur catcher. He gets it off so fast and is so accurate with it that he catches many would-be crack base-stealers out by some fifteen feet or so. In addition to his exceptional ability as a receiver, he is a consistent hitter, and shows great promise of improving next season. His choice as 1917 Captain was undoubtedly a very wise one. BOWDEN — " Red " made his fourth year on the baseball team his most brilliant one. He played four years of college baseball and made only one error, he dropped only one fly ball; truly a record to be proud of. He was the best judge of a fly ball of any college outfielder that ever played in the South, and by his brilliant fielding kept many a drive from falling safe. Although not a heavy hitter, " Red was a consistent .250 hitter and could always be counted on in a pinch. He graduated last June, and it will be a hard task to fill his shoes in the center field. BRUCE— " Polly " was the hitter of the outfielders. His ability to hit to either field kept the opposition crossed all the time. He is a good fielder and also possesses a strong throwing arm. " Polly " will be back for his last year of baseball, and bids fair to oust someone for a place on Mr. Heisman ' s All -Southern team. ELLERBE — Frank is recognized as the most natural hitter in college baseball. During his two years at Sewanee he has won more games with his bat than any other man Scwanee has ever known. He is not only a batter of note, but is a fast and graceful fielder. His all-round work on the diamond caused the big league clubs to give him more than one passing glance, and it would not be surprising to see Frank galloping around under the big tent in two or three more years. The team will miss the services of this valuable man this year, and his vacant place will give the Coach no little worry to fill. (97) Q JP S GOWN The Letter Men WORTHAM — " Pep " well deserves the name that his teammates gave him. He was always in the game and urging the team on with a word or so of encouragement. " Pep " is of the free-swinging type of hitter, and more than once knocked the ball out of the park. His home run against Mississippi A. and M. meant victory for the Purple, while his hit over " Rabbit " Curry ' s head in the Vandy game came near giving us another victory. His consistency both in the field and at the bat ranks him as one of the best infielders in Southern collegiate circles. CRUDGINGTON — " Doc " is the other veteran on the pitching staff. He, with Captain Riner, shoul- dered the greater part of the pitching burden of the season. " Doc " has a fast one, a good curve, and remarkable control. His game against Vandy, which he lost 1 to in twelve innings, will go down in the annals of college baseball as one of the best games ever pitched by a college star. HERRING — " Doug " was entrusted with the lead-off position in the batting order and did his part well. He could hit from either side of the plate and was fast, therefore making an ideal man for the place. " Doug " covered lots of ground in the outfield and threw out several men at the plate who insisted on taking liberties with his arm. " Doug " left school right after Thanksgiving, so the team will be minus his services the coming year. CLARK — Henry can be called a convert to the baseball game. He entered college with a reputation as a pitcher, but his shoulder bothered him his entire first year, and he didn ' t have any opportunity to show his ability as a mound artist. Last year he converted himself into a first baseman and he did his job right well. He fielded his position with rare skill and many a time stopped a rally of the opposition by pulling down a hard drive. Henry not only fielded well, but was a big help to the club with his bat, for his timely hits paved the way to several victories. COCHRAN — " Jingo " didn ' t come out for the team his first year, but answered the first call last spring, and immediately started in making up for lost time. He played the third station as though that had been his lifetime occupation. He has one of the strongest throwing arms of any man and has sniffed off many would-be baserunners by seemingly impossible stops and throws. " Jingo " not only fielded brilliantly, but hit at a consistent clip throughout the entire season. (98) The Letter Men PAYNE — Vergil had a little hard luck in having to contend with two veteran pitchers for a berth on the staff, and therefore was kept out of some of the series. However, the skill he showed in the games in which he worked will make him a strong contender for a regular position in the 1917 season. LEAR — " Tris " acted in the difficult role of pinchhitter and utility man for the club. In the early games of the season he played in the outfield, and for his brilliant work was dubbed " Tns, " after the outfielder that made Cleveland famous. He will be back this year and promises to give some- one a keen contest for a regular position on the nine. JONES — This was Coach Jones ' first year at Sewanee, but he made good at the jump. He gained the admiration and respect of the fellows at the outset and kept it throughout the entire year. Under his coaching the team played the best article of ball that has been played by a Sewanee team in a number of years. Everyone hopes that Coach Jones will be back with us for an- other year. DOBBINS — " Dobs ' was manager of the team for his second year. He made out a good schedule and had it so arranged that it pleased everybody concerned ; no easy task. It is the regret of all that " Dobs " cannot be back and act as manager all the time.

Yes, they do not. There are eight of them. Count them. The boy in the upper left-hand corner is Joey Walker, from Beaufort, South Carolina. Joey is a good boy and has been with us a long time. The big boy to the right of him is Val Sessions of Mississippi. He is the best-hearted boy in St. Luke ' s. He is very genial and we all like him very much. The tall, thin boy on Val ' s right is Mitchner. He is married, but otherwise we have nothing against him. The next boy in line is Patillo. He is not a Spaniard; he is a talker. The last boy in the top row is Cupid Williams, the pride of the Hospital. He thinks tobacco is a filthy weed. Tut, tut, Cupid; you must not criticise your elders and betters. The sober-faced youth on the left end of the lower row is Leatherbury of Virginia. We say this to his credit, that he never mentions the name of his native state. Would there were more like him. Next to him is Jerry Wallace of Arkansas. He is quite a boy. We call him Bishop. The handsome, but glum-looking, boy in the center of the lower row is Cicero Morris, the Class President. He carries one subject. Cicero lives in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, and is proud of it. The hungry-looking boy next to him is Manley. Manley is his last name. Like the rest of us, he has many faults, but is trying to overcome them. He practices vocal exercises at five o ' clock A.M. and plays the ocarina (Hungarian sweet potato) at eleven P.M. The last boy in the row is Jo Murphy. Jo is a Hebrew shark. Do you not think that he is good looking?

So the light-lorn greyness called despair, Unlit by love or friendship fair, Is tortured now by shadowy things As fluttering folds of gloomy wings: My thoughts are turned to glittering steel And, in my mind, they whirl and wheel, But, wild or calm, they find no ease. Nor sun, nor moon, nor Pleiades Can make one love or friendship Rare From the light-lorn greyness called despair.

The expedition, under the scholarly leadership of M. Profes- sor DuTell, had been excavating In the celebrated Tell-all-about-it Mounds, without any startling dis- coveries having been made. But on January 2Sth, the famous Tell- all-about-it Tablets, which are so frequently mentioned in the Poin- setta Stone, were unearthed, and for the first time in history the physiognomies and biographies of " J, " " P, " and " E " are accessible to archaeologists. The special representative of " The Yelp, " who accompanied the expedition, immediately dispatched a facsimile reproduction of the tablets. It is with great pride that " The Yelp " points to the fact of its being the first to announce this remarkable discovery to the world. Members of " The Yelp " staff collaborating with famous Egyp- tologists have made an authentic translation of the hieroglyphics, and excerpts from the tablets are given below. Announcements of the publication of the complete text and comments may be found on page nine.

Dr. Keller had gone there to await the death of the District Attorney of his native city, and incidentally to engage in research work in con- nection with his Ph.D. thesis. Historians have long known that such a document existed, and Dr. Keller is to be congratulated upon his good fortune. It is understood that as a reward Dr. Keller will be a knight of Cuba. Knowing Cuba to be a republic, a repre- sentative of " The Y ' elp " inter- viewed our Vice-Chancellor, some- time Bishop of Cuba, in regard to the existence of orders of nobility on the island. He said, " There are no knights in Cuba.

" Although unable to appear as fre- quently as our subscribers would wish, their interest in our pages has not flagged. We have watched the mushroom rise and ignomin- ious fall of a scurrillous contempo- rary, founded to combat the eter- nal principles of communism which " The Yelp " has ever de- fended. " Sic semper adversaries. " Through the influence of our pow- erful and thundering editorials, many evils have been corrected, and at present we are engaged in mortal combat with an insidious usage which, if continued, will sap the very lifeblood of our institu- tion. We now refer to the nau- seating " practice " of strawing, which little by little has been penetrating our community. We feel sure that with an arousal of public sentiment to a full reali- zation of the evil consequences of this lecherous custom, all con- scientious thinkers will bend every effort to obliterate it, and cause the guilty to retire into innocuous desuetude.

The can opener was mis- placed, so Mr. Dubose opened the meeting. He spoke at length on the subject of reverence. At the conclusion of his remarks the sub- ject was thrown open for discus- sion (to faculty only). Mr. H. L.. Jewett Williams followed him, and while taking exception to most of his remarks, agreed with him in part, although not entirely. Dr. Thomas then spoke, and while dis- counting the remarks of his prede- cessors, admitted an element of truth, with much to be said on both sides, and that while on the one hand there were many good points, still, on the other hand, there were four fingers and a thumb. Mr. Henry Phil- lips next spoke. While touch- ing lightly on the previous re- marks, he took the opportunity to introduce a new line of ideas in harmony with, yet diverging from, what had been said. Dr. Wells then spoke. He took a firm stand on the subject, and so finely drawn were his distinctions, and so delicately veiled were his allu- sions that the keenest observer failed to note wherein he agreed or disagreed with the general topic. Dr. Benedict closed the meeting with prayer. A shorthand report of the re- marks was forwarded to a firm of expert accountants, who will, if possible, try and find out what was said. The value of these meetings is apparent to everyone who at- tends. The Widow ' s Cruise ffl m A Charming Story of Life in the High C ' s Beautifully illustrated with pictures of the Pacific Ocean.

A monster, by day like unto a sow. and by night, unto a trench digger, did appear, and did nightly devastate the sward, which was above value. 3. Nightly did he ravish, and great was the wailing of the people, and the women and chil- dren put ashes upon their heads, and the strong men were troubled. 4. And Albion, the Builder, waxed exceeding wroth and he took counsel with Walter Decanus, Nimrod ' s friend, and with Benedict, the Doctor, whom all men love. 5. For, he said, It is not meet that these things be; the grass which we have nourished and upon which we have poured out our treasure is no more, and our eyes are offended. 6. And Myers and Reed, Janitors, valient men and skilled in warfare, have striven in vain to rid us of the monster, and I know not what to do. 7. And Walter Decanus, Nimrod ' s friend, an- swered and said: Lo, I am Nimrod ' s friend, and know the ways of the beasts of the forest. I will call unto me Ralph of the sawed-off shotgun, and Berky, who is an explorer and a mighty man, and we will arm ourselves and lay in wait by night for the monster, and perchance we will see it; 8. And if we do see it, it will surely die. 9. And he called unto him Ralph and Berky, and they layed in wait, but they saw not the monster. 10. Nevertheless was the lawn again ravished. 1 1 . And Albion Episcopus was exceeding wroth and he summoned his counsellors and spake unto them and told them all these things. 12. And Rollo, lover of germs, spake and he said: 13. Give me, I pray thee, three valiant men, full of vigor, and I will seek the monster and lay in wait for him; 14. And him I will persuade to eat of the germs which I will bring with me, and he will become sick and surely die. 15. And they gave him wealherly, the Mighty, and Fooshee, who was exceeding wise, and Tay- lor, whom they called Doc. For he was skilled with herbs and poisons, and they awaited the monster; And Rollo saw him, nigh unto Tucka- way; but the monster still lived, for the germs were as meat and drink to him. And he throve as doth Shannon on the fatal dope. 16. And Albion, the Builder, was troubled and he called unto him all the young men who were in the place, and he spake unto them, say- ing: 17. O, young men, valiant and wise, behold I am troubled and my heart is sore within me; 18. For, behold, this monster ravish the land, and destroyeth the grass, of which each blade hath the value of one talent of gold. 29. And my captains have striven and have wrought nobly; but still the monster liveth. 20. Do thou, therefore, take counsel with your- selves how this monster may be destroyed. 21. And to him who killeth it shall be given all the treasure that Telfair, the Treasurer, think- eth is his due; and thou knowest that Telfair, the Treasurer, hath taken unto himself a wife, and therefore he is a generous man, and the treasure is great. 22. And the young men took counsel and spake one with another. 23. And Joseph of the flaming neck cloth an- swered and spake, and with him, Yancey, the Captain, and they were both proctors and mighty men. 24. And they counselled the young men to form themselves into bands and to arm themselves, and to seek diligently for the monster and to slay it. 25. For they said, Maybe the treasure is great, which Telfair, the Treasurer, will give unto us. 26. And if it is not great, surely Albion Epis- (181) copus will give unto us degrees, which are desired of all men. 27. And ihey formed themselves into bands. 28. The band of Hoffman, mighty men: Fini- zie, the Augustan, skilled in games, leading them; 29. And there followed them Buck Pyles, both great and small, trainers of horses, and Woodall, called Judge, no man knoweth why; 30. And Davis, called Wreck-less, who know- :th not fear or sloth; 31. And Baker and Schneider, editors, learned len; 32. And Hinton, called Wop, and Cicero Morris, coming from St. Luke ' s, players of lutes and singers of songs, for perchance, they said, We may charm the monster with music and he will fall a prey unto us and we will obtain this treasure. 33. And Ruth, of the (laming locks, and Swoope, called Goliath, for he was great in stature, 34. And many others came to the camp of Finizie, the Augustan, and rats innumerable. 35. And from St. Luke ' s came learned men, knowing Hebrew, and thus hating the porcupine monster. 36. There was Lamond of the horse laugh, and Bearden of the silver tongue; 37. And Nelson, hastening, men know not why, and Forsythe of the ready pen, and Ossman and Wallace, warriors both; 38. And many others, both learned and brave. 39. And the hosts of Palmetto, and Magnolia, and Van Ness were many, and many famous captains were amongst them. 40. There was Inge, straight as a young oak, and the two Sloans, graceful as young gazelles, and Means, armed with a discus, glorying in his might, and Crudge, called Doctor, though not a physician ; 41. And Deacon Smith, stalwart and very wise, and Lewis, the orator, and Stoney, in whom all men rely; 42. And Palmer and Bruce, skilled with the transit, that they might measure the monster to see how long he was; 43. And Dobbins, the forester, mighty and shrewd withal, and many more, tried and true. 44. And Mac, the Major, a man of war, and greatly experienced, led them, and fear came upon all beholding them. 45. And they sought the monster by night and by day, and they found him not. 46. And still he ravished the land. 47. And on the fourth day, early in the morn- ing, while it was yet dark, sounds were heard as of guns. 48. And those who heard them, awakening from sleep, said: 49. Behold, they have found the monster and killed him; therefore will we fear no more, but rather rejoice. 50. And, behold, it was true. 51. But of the hosts who sought the monster, none could be found who had seen him and none came to claim the reward which Telfair, the Treasurer, took from the treasure. 52. And the reward was very great; six soda checks was the reward. 53. But who killed the monster, Albion, the Builder, alone knoweth, and he telleth not. (182) The Betting Alumnus (The accent of Alumnus indicateth his soured dis- position.) (The football guest is spell- bound by the checkbook of the Alumnus and is con- strained to hear his tale.) I. Il is an ancient Alumnus, And he stoppeth one of three. " By thy big fat bets and critical eye, Now wherefore stopp ' st thou me? " II. " The V. C. ' s doors are open wide. And I am due within; The team has met, the feast is set, May ' st hear their jaws begin. " III. He holds him with his eager hand, " There was a team, " quoth he. " Hold off! Unhand me, betting loon! " Eftsoons his hand dropped he. IV. He holds him with his eager eye — The football guest stood still, And listens like a three years ' child; The Alumnus hath his will. V. The Football Guest sat on a stone; He cannot raise a fuss, And thus spoke on that peev-ed man, The betting Alumnus. (The Alum- nus lelleth hot) the team departed for VI.

(At length the team win- neth.) (The Alum- nus is no piker.) XI. " And now old Vandy came, and she Was tyrannous and strong; She struck with her o ' ertaking wings And beat us bad and long. XII.

And a good schedule with many games The winning team did follow; And every day that it did play We raked in many a dollar! XVII.

" (184) De Pen an ' De Swode N a little college town in the mountains of Virginia the negroes, who form a considerable part of the population, and who, like all of their race, are fond of talk and argument, have been accustomed for many years to hold among themselves debates on various topics of interest drawn from their own limited knowledge and experience. With only a semblance of formality in their meetings, sometimes even boisterous, but giving room for a display of the negro ' s ready wit and quaint humor, these debates are enjoyed not only by themselves, but by many of the white people in the community. Though almost always hopelessly irrelevant, illogical, and childishly foolish n thir arguments, the debaters are not without imagination, and succeed at least in making their hearers catch some visual image of their conceptions. The subjects chosen open up a wide field for the exercise of the imagination and are usually phrased as a direct question, rather than in the form of a statement to be proved, as, for example: Resolve ' , Wich was deservin ' of de mos ' credit, Mister Damun er Mister Pittias? wherein Mister Damun being referred to as an Episcopal minister, his opponent scornfully retorted with the unanswerable argument: " Shuh ! Ef you was ter see Mister Damun agwine up de street wid ' is coat-tails aflyin ' out behime, you wouldn ' never reco ' nize ' im. " On the subject. Resolve ' , Wich is de mos ' attractation ter de eye of man, art er nater? many strong arguments were brought forward to show that " Mister Art subtrac ' a man ' e eye, w ' en Mister Nater he won ' notice. " The Civil War was fought over again in the debate on Wich was deservin ' of de mos ' credit, Ginnerl Lee fer fightin ' fer ' is rights, er Ginnerl Grant fer fightin ' fer de Nunion? Needless to say, Ginnerl Grant won. An odd patchwork of ill-assorted learning was displayed in the debates on Wich have ben de mos ' injuyious ter de human kind, fire er water? and Wich was de mos ' ancient, wood er iurn? And finally a puzzling question in ethics was discussed in the debate on Wich will a man go de furderes ' fer, love of ' oman er love of money? But one of the most interesting of them all, which I happened to attend some years ago, discussed the well-worn subject, Wich have been de mos ' benefit ter de human kind, de pen er de swode? It was held in the village Methodist church, to which most of the participants belonged, including the pastor himself. From the little gallery at one end reserved for the " w ' ite fokes, " I looked down upon the crowd below, and by the light of a dingy old chandelier had a good view of the chairman as he sat at a table by the pulpit, with the rival debaters on each hand. On the wall above him hung on the one side a picture of Daniel in the lions ' den, and on the other an advertisement of Pear ' s soap, with the familiar black face shining from the polished surface of a tin pan. Gabriel, the chairman, a waiter in the college mess, was a young mulatto of about nineteen or twenty, whose low, receding forehead, flat nose and wide mouth gave little suggestion of intelligence or of executive ability. Clearing his throat nervously, he ham- mered on the table with his fist and cried out in a jerky voice: (185) " House come ter order, please. De subjec ' fer debate ternight is, Resolve ' , Wich have been de mos ' benefit ter de human kind, de pen er de swode? ' Firmative, pen; negative, swode. I call on de Revren ' Mister Smith as de fust on de ' firmative. " Revren ' Mister Smith, who served in the double capacity of coachman to a prominent white family in the vicinity and pastor of a small church in the neighborhood, was tall, lanky and bowlegged, with kinky black hair, side chops and a full face of glossy black. He was dressed in a long black well-worn coat, so that his whole appearance was solemn and funereal. Rising with an air of great gravity and making an awkward bow, he began : " Mister Chairman, Mister Jedges, Gentermen and Ladies: I ' m ve ' y sorry de udder speaker ain ' come, so one of deir speakers is got ter take two turns. I hope he ain ' no great orator. But I mus ' p ' oceed wid my argument. " ' Bout six thousan ' two hunderd years ago, dere was ve ' y few people w ' at had eddication at all. Man had no knowledge. De worl ' was in gross darkness, an ' on ' y mighty few pussons in dese yer Nunited States had l ' amin ' . Den, howsomever, de swode cut down he haidges an ' thistles of de mountains an ' cl ' ared de track fer de civilization. Lf it hadn ' ' a been fer de swode, we ain ' never gwine to ' ve had de privilege of settin ' yer ternight befo ' dese yer hon ' able jedges. De swode done away wid slavery an ' spraid chu ' ches, houses, an ' colonies thu de Ian ' . You think dis old swode is rustin ' , but he never git rusty. I jes ' wan tell yer dish yer — no pusson is a scholard, w ' ite er culled, Bowing to the chairman and judges Revren ' Mister Smith took his seat and the chairman now called on the " Revren ' Sears, " the first and only speaker on the negative side. As he was the pastor of the church in which the debate was held, naturally much was expected of him. Shorter and stouter than Revren ' Mister Smith, he too was coal black and his face was very full, with stubby side chops. He was dressed with a great deal of care, from his shiny shoes, light trousers, black Prince Albert, to his large white collar and white tie. Making an elaborate bow, he began: " Mister Chairman, Ladies and Gentermens of de Jedges: I ' m sorry I ' se left by myse ' f. My pardner done promise ter telegraph me. " — Suddenly pausing at the sound of wheels outside — " Somebody drivin ' up now, brudder. " As the wheels die away in the distance without his expected partner, he continued: " I ' m in a gran ' subjec ' . De pen have been far mo ' benefit. I ain ' gwine c ote w ' at de udder speaker say ' bout six thousan ' two hundred years ago an ' de gross darkness. O, dat my wuds was now printed in a book! Befo ' you kin know anything ' bout a swode, hit mus ' be fus ' written. Dat was de langwidge of Job I use ' jes ' now. Check it on de fly, Mister Jedge. Anudder little boy, bo ' n fo ' teen forty- fo ' , la ' nch out fo ' teen ninety-two inter de worl. ' He travel thu pon ' s, lakes, and over mountains an ' plains an ' gaddered together all sceneries befo ' ' im, an ' writ as he rode thu de seas. Could de swode ' a done dat? Mister Jedge, do you know ' im? In Spain, Europe, Azhy, Affiky, dat man sought an ' solicit ' spe ' unce, and den he wrote. Hit was written befo ' hit was printed. Mister Swode couldn ' a did dat! " Chile ain ' sent ter school ter study no swode! He sent dere ter study books, w ' ich (186) have ter be fust written. You cyan ' do no writin ' wid a swode. Oncet, three thousan ' men fell by de p ' int of de swode. Dat ain ' no benefit! Could de swode give us de circum- prence roun ' de yeath er de diameter thu de worl ' ? Dis little boy, de pen, give us twenty-five million and eight million. De swode couldn ' ' a tole dat! Derefore dis shows dat de pen is mo ' benefit. " Mister Linkum didn ' wanter fight. He thought an ' he pondered. He says of de States, ' Ef I b ' lieve it fer de bes ' ter free ha ' f er part de niggers, I do dat. I wants ter save de Nunion. ' Read dat eddifyin ' volume, Our Brudder in Black- W ' en thoughts run, don ' git no swode an ' go out an write about hit. Read thu de Scripters. How ' d you git it? Fust written, den printed, dat ' s de way. " Mister Nulixes S. Grant fust han ' le de pen an ' dat tell ' im how ter navigate de swode. Read in de tick-tack an ' dat tell you how to ketch de swode. " Amid much applause the Revren ' Sears took his seat. Hardly had the clapping and stamping ceased when the chairman presented the next speaker on the affirmative, Mister Charlie Owings [Owens.] The only lay brother in the debate, he was much younger than the others, but he had had considerable experience in such contests and he did not disappoint his friends this time. Tall, raw-boned, loose-jointed, his height accen- tuated by a great mass of kinky hair, he was nevertheless something of a sport, to judge from his dress. He wore a cutaway coat, with the sleeves half-way to his elbow, with no vest, but with an elaborate display of shirt bosom, offset by a wide black sash and adorned by a large and brilliant stud. As he rose to his full height, his huge white collar with long points, his bright red cravat, and his shiny boots all testified to the care he had bestowed on his costume. With one hand in the breast of his coat and with the other pushing back his mop-like hair, he smiled rather foolishly and, ignoring all rules of parliamentary etiquette, began abruptly and confidentially: " In de fus ' place, don ' make no noise, ' cuz I wants ter git away f ' om yer terreckly. W ' en de udder speaker finish, I feel so small I mos ' take my hat an ' run off. He say dat a book hatter be fus ' written den printed. Now in de fus ' place, I jes ' like ter call ter yo ' min ' w ' at fer, w ' en, an ' w ' ere was de fus ' printin ! De fus ' printin ' was done fer Moses on de Mount of Siniyeye, but de swode was long ' fo ' dat. De swode was in de Gyarden of Eden! De udder gentermen on de opposite side go by jumps. Jehovah place a flamin ' swode in de Gyarden fer a good pu ' pose. Now, gentlemens, les come down ter Moses an ' dem three thousan ' souls w ' at my opponion talk ' bout. Gawd comman ' Moses aft ' ' e done gone an ' vi ' late de law. Now w ' at benefit in de law ef dere an ' no penalty fer de vi ' latin ' ? Is de laws of de Ian ' so great ' cuz de pen is dar? Naw! ' cuz we use de swode ter punish de people. " Jehovah in he gret prophecy used de swode. Think ' bout Gibeon an ' de gret loss on bofe side. Did he call fer ' e pen? Naw! He call fer a swode! See! Some ' n ' ter bring men submissive. " De genterman speak ' bout C ' lumbus an ' fo ' teen an ' ninety-two. At dat time Englan ' was in seven hundred million dollars debt. De ' Merican countries struggle (187) under gret yoke. She den make de Stamp Ac ' Law. Dat was a day of gret mo ' nin ' . Bells tolled an ' de ole flag was lowered. De pen was de thing w ' at cause de trouble an ' de mo ' nin ' . Can yer ' spute dat? De pen raise de fire suttenly. Aft ' de Rebbo- Iution Abe Linkum wanter put de fire out. Pen was de man w ' at make de trouble. Ef de pen done so much, w ' y couldn ' ' e ' a brung de South back ter de Nunion? De swode done dat! De swode is de masterpiece of submissiveness. [Flowers presented to the speaker amid much applause.] " But here ' s a gret storm coming on [pointing to the Revren ' Sears] an ' I mus ' close, thankin ' you for yo ' undivided attention. " During the speech of his opponent the Revren ' Sears had found it hard to keep his seat, but his pencil had not been idle and he now rose, waving his notes excitedly before him. Grant and Mister Linkum bofe write on de battlefiel ' ! Who refute dat? An ' den, mo ' n " Mister Jedge, de swode couldn ' an ' didn ' bring ' em back ter de Union. Mister dat, don ' you ricollec ' w ' en de servant cut off de year of de High Pris ' Chris ' tole ' im, ' Put up yo ' swode? ' " Six thousan ' years ago dere was no writin ' , but de swode was in de Gyarden of Eden, my disputant says. Go up ter Hebb ' n, Mister Jedge. Gawd had angels dere long ' fo ' Adam dig in the gyarden ter write down everything in de Book. Mister Jedge, carefully notice dis, please. " Gentermen, I interjuce yer ter a man w ' at you will all reco ' nize. Mister Ginnerl George Washington, fus ' President of de Nunited States. Mister G. Washington never choose a cyabinet of de swode men, dat he didn ' . He done choose fer ' is cyabinet Mister Elexander Hamilton, ' pinted Secitary of de Treasury. Dis man didn ' have no swode. He had to write an ' let de people know ' bout de money. Mister Thomas Jef- ferson, he was ' lected Secitary of de State. Kin a swode give us de hist ' ry of de State? Mister Hinnery Cox git de place of Secitary of de War, an den he writ a hist ' ry of de swode. Dese ain ' no pervarrycations, dey ' s solid facts. Mister John J. Jay, he was de chief jestice of de Soopreme Cote. Was dese a crown of swodes? Naw! " On ' y f ' om de pen, sir, will you read of dat ol ' boy, Martin Lut ' er. He solicit aid ter secyore a classical eddication. De teacher w ' at teach ' im whup ' im sixteen suc- cessful times in one mornin ' . He come out, he did, an ' say ' e gwine bring out a reforma- tion. He done dis by ' is pen, fer he writ out ' is meditation. " Think about dem sixteen prophets w ' at prophesied in de Idamic Age. Kin you prophesy wid a swode? De twelve apostles writ a hist ' ry of de Saviour ' s life. De swode didn ' give us dat! Dat was brung about my penmanship. Bredren, de pen is de primer of de yeath.

The judges, al l of whom had been seen to nod more than once during the proceeding, straightened themselves noisily in their chairs. The two parsons glared angrily at each other. The chairman sat for a moment dazed and neglectful of his duties. Mister Charlie Owings rose to the occasion and shouted out: " Now, Jedges, we ' re thu, an ' you mus ' wake up an ' go out an ' decide. De Chair- man go wid ' em. " A few moments later, when the judges returned, stretching and rubbing their eyes, Gabriel, the chairman, announced: " De Jedges decide dat de swode won de debate. " (189) A Legend in Stone |N July 4, 1856, in the Mountain House on Point Lookout, there gathered a band of noble men and true, staunch representatives of the Church; theirs was a great project; theirs a determined effort; theirs an untiring zeal; theirs an undimmed vision. Th is was the first of a series of enthusiastic meetings convened here, at Montgomery, Beersheba Springs, and New Orleans; finally at Se- wanee, on October 1 0, 1 860, the first step toward the realization of the great plan was made — the laying of the cornerstone, a stately block of reddish-brown variegated Ten- nessee marble, couched in a bed of Sewanee sandstone, consecrated with divine invoca- tion by Leonidas Polk, Bishop of Louisiana. Thus was recorded the first visible portent of the great University, the culmination of an ever-swelling tide of enthusiasm and love emanating from the furthest confines of the South. Thus under most auspicious circum- stances the beginning was made, graced by the presence of the eight bishops represent- ing the church, whose several dioceses were uniting in this great educational movement, and favored with the attendance of several thousand friends from the many walks of life. Already the war clouds were gathering. Soon the youth fo r whom the University was founded were on the battlefield, and presently the University site became the camp for the passing Confederate and Federal forces. A letter dated July 26, 1863, tells of the demolition of the cornerstone by unknown hands during the Federal encampment and of the distribution of its fragments as souvenirs in the North. The letter and the frag- ment are in the University collection. When the rumble of the cannon had ceased, and the smoke had cleared away, only the foundation of the beautiful cornerstone was intact, which, in a vast domain of ten thousand acres, together with the ashes of a few frames, was all that remained of the small beginnings of a great University; the rich South, from which a $3,000,000 endowment was expected, was impoverished. Such were the con- ditions confronting Bishop Quintard, when, on March 22, 1 866, he planted a wooden cross, where now stands St. Luke ' s Library. This was the second portent, fitting the occasion, looking toward the establishment of a Divinity School. With this as a nucleus, the frame buildings appeared, the classical school followed, the grammar and the junior collegiate. These frames slowly but surely gave way to buildings more permanent of beautiful and stately sandstone. So the University in a small measure began to realize the ideals of its founders. Well they laid its foundations; sure was their faith upon the rock; many were their vicissitudes; loyal were their hearts; unstinted their devotion. The University grew in favor with God and man; Saint Augustine was enlarged repeatedly, until replaced finally by All Saints ; Saint Luke ' s, the Library, Breslin, Walsh, Thompson, Hoffman, and the Science buildings appeared; the students body increased. Now, as at an earlier period in her history, when the war clouds swept away her vast hopes, a rapidly increasing debt was threatening to crush her, but Sewanee ' s sons, loyal and true, Sewanee ' s friends, generous and kind, came to her rescue and saved her from disgrace. Great was their labor, enthusiastic was their work, joyous was their victory. (190) In the summer following, August 17, 1916, there occourred a fitting climax, a third portent, more significant even than the others, the dedication of the alumni stone by Bishop Knight, under whose capable and efficient administration Sewanee has been freed of her accumulated debt. This stone marks the site of the altar of old Saint Augustine, and is, therefore, the connecting link between that historic old chapel and the new All Saints, beautiful in its incompletion ; it is a token of gratitude of the New Sewanee for the Old ; it is more — it is a lasting proof that Sewanee ' s sons and friends are mindful of her needs and enthusiastic for her future. This stone looks back upon a sea of uncer- tainty, reefed with difficulties apparently insurmountable, yet upon a faith capable of moving mountains ; it looks forward, with a zeal renewed by a consciousness of success, to the future Sewanee, even more glorious than the past. Sewanee ' s glorious history is thus fittingly associated with three portents, as many landmarks; the first cornerstone was demolished, only the foundations remain; the wooden cross has long since decayed, but its place is silently witnessed by Saint Luke ' s cornerstone ; the alumni stone marks the site of the old altar and a redeemed Sewanee. How long shall the first cornerstone be witnessed only by the ruins of its foundation? How long shall the Annual Founders ' Day celebration occur in the presence of an empty sanctuary? Sewanee men! A three- ton block of Tennessee marble should be the central object of the next Founders ' Day celebration, October 10, 1917. O! Sewanee! Verily thou art Alma Mater, Thou dost unite the Wisdom and Courage of Athene With the Beauty and Love of Aphrodite. Strong art thou, beautiful and kind, In thy offspring shall the nation be blessed; About thy snow-white neck shall hang A string of pearls, immaculate as thou. From adversity ' s sea, recalling to mind Obstacles surpassed, prescient of Characters wrought. O! Sewanee! Verily thou art Alma Maler. (191) The Royal Purple BOUT a quarter of a century ago Sewanee adopted official colors. The hue was royal purple. Whether this choice was made on account of the beauty of that particular color, or whether it symbolizes the connection of this University with the bishops of the Apostolic Succession, whose special symbolic color is purple, or whether it was with the hope that the purple, the color of royalty, should always unconsciously hold up before the college community the highest ideals, the aspiration for imperial influence and kingly character — this is not recorded. But the true appropriateness of the royal purple as Sewanee ' s color is this, that it stands for the kingly motto, " Noblesse oblige. " That fine French phrase is untrans- latable. Perhaps the nearest approximation to it in English would be, " Honor con- strains. " To those who try to live up to such a motto it may mean something like this: not because of laws imposed upon us, not because of penalties that threaten, but for the sake of our own self-respect, because of the ideals which we have freely chosen and to which we pledge our loyalty, for the sake of our own dignity and our own honor, we will not stoop to what is low and base, we will not defile ourselves with that which is noisome and unclean. It is true, there have been those at Sewanee, who have acknowledged no allegiance to such a motto, sojourning among us, not being of us. But from the dawning of the germinant idea of this institution in the minds of the founders, down to this day, Sewanee has always stood for it, and so long as she is true to herself, she must always stand for it. " Noblesse oblige " must always be her motto, as the purple is her appropriate color. But there is another significance of the royal purple, and that is this: It does stand for royalty; it does stand for aspiration toward kingly dignity and imperial conquest; it does symbolize what the crown and scepter symbolize. These, in the manner in which royalty was interpreted by the kingliest of men, by Him whose sheer nobility of spirit, and unconquerable mastership of character, transformed his cross of shame into the throne of world-dominion. He said that true greatness is greatness of service. Not as among the Gentiles, where the crown stood for tyranny, and the scepter stood for exploitation and enslavement of the weak; but among those who should be worthy to bear his name and follow in his footsteps, the chiefest among them, the one who might dare to grasp the scepter and wear the crown, must be the one who could best serve his fellows, the servant of them all. He who gave this definition of royalty wore a purple robe. They gave it to Him in mockery, but He wore it worthily. He made Himself the servant of all humanity. As He said of Himself, the Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister and to give his life a ransom for many. That sort of royalty is what the purple stands for, and that is why, unconsciously, perhaps, it was chosen as the color of the University of the South. The University of the South was planned by men whose lives were consecrated to just that kind of royalty, and it was planned and named and dedicated that it should render to the South, and to (192) the nation, to the Church, and to the world, service; service of a particular kind, such service as Noblesse alone can give — to uphold high ideals, to stand for the best and the truest and the noblest, and to send out men upon whom Sewanee had stamped the hall- mark of her own spirit and purpose, whose degree should be the testimony that they had been equipped and fitted for rendering that service. How can we live up to that motto, we Sewanee men? An alumnus watched the Thanksgiving game of 1916. He had not seen this game since the time, twenty years before, when he played on the Sewanee team. Not without pride he saw the purple worthily defended in that game of 1916, by a team whose members were true to the traditions of clean sportsmanship that this alumnus, and others, had fought hard to main- tain in the old days. Not the least service a college can render to the commonwealth is to uphold the ideals of clean sport, and to send out into the world men prepared for leadership who are grounded in the principles of clean sport. Not the least contribution that a college man can make to the welfare of the commonwealth is to make clear and unmistakable in the minds of its men, that they may teach it to others, the meaning of true sportsmanship. The difference between genuine, clean sportsmanship, and the dirty four-smelling cari- cature of it which characterizes what we call a " tinhorn sport; " the difference between the notion of sportsmanship in the mind of a racetrack tout, the barroom loafer, the roue, the car d-deck artist, on the one hand, and the ideals of courage, self-respect, loyalty, and honor that make up true sportsmanship — between those two interpretations of the word there is a great gulf fixed. There are great Southern principles and convictions to be fought for — American principles, of which we maintain the Southern interpertation to be the true interpretation. If the University of the South is to be true to her name, she must send out men who are prepared for leadership, in the championship of those great convictions for which the South must stand, and which are no less essential for the welfare of the American commonwealth. The royal purple stands for the type of character and manhood that the South needs, and that America needs. It stands for manliness, and honor, and loyalty, for the royalty of service. Men that are loyal to the purple are serving a higher cause than the welfare of the college, if they are loyal to what the purple essentially stands for (193) Ode To Sleep (On reaching Cowan at 5:30 A.M., Monday after Thanksgiving) Dedicated to Hon. J. C. Bennett, Jr. O blessed goddess, daughter of divine fatigue, Whoe ' er has missed thy comfort knows thy solace well; There seem to be against the weary man in league The loathsome minions who inhabit shades of hell. Stretch out thine arms, thy restful arms divine and fair, And let us deeply drink of Lethe ' s flood at last; The leaden hours of night have fled to Western lair. The roseate hues of dawning day break on us fast. Cloud-pushing Phoebus rises o ' er the mountain far; Sweet lassitude prevents their seeing his red beams, Until the grating voice of the proprietor With question rude, awakes them from their pleasant dreams Of heavenly Terpsichore ' s celestial charms, From beardless frosh to bachelor Telfair bald with age, They seek in vain to fall in her elusive arms. But they meet from the porter sullen persiflage. The tie ' s been played, the victory ours, but now indeed ' Mid Cowan ' s humble scenes Somnus in vain we woo; To one who to make this trip ne ' er has felt the need Our sole advice, " Catch not the train that leaves at two. " (194) LANDMARKS In faith, our Founder, long ago, Planted a cross of marble, where He saw, in faith, a temple grow — A shrine of youth, a house of prayer. Then war turned loose the powers of Hell, And nought was left of all his plan Save only ruin, and none could tell Where stood the work that he began. In hope, our second Founder placed A cross of wood instead of stone Upon the spot that now is graced By massive fane. And it has grown, Through faith and hope, until today Our towered city doth kiss the sky. A monument to last alway — Truth pushing toward eternity.
