OUAHRAIVGLE DF THE UNIVERSITY OF THE SOUTH AN EARLIER PLAN HY SILAS McHEE The Material Sewanee Nd school is superior to its physical property, and a school with a fine plant is already a long way on the road to high standards. those who are leaving sewanee as seniors have spent four years in a school which is situated in a mountain paradise on a vast domain owned ry the univer- sity, and further, they have lived in dormitories which are nowhere excelled for comfort and reauty. they have done their work in walsh hall, science hall, and in the lihrary that is, perhaps, the loveliest huilding on the campus. on the following few pages the cap and gown is privi- leged to present the ruildings of the university. ft . £%• J?-?. i SSjw p Vie ■ t. ill ■ ■ WALSH HALL This is the place where the student has most of his contact with higher educa- tion.

TUCKAWAY INN JOHNSON HALL B R E S L I N TOWER The University boasts a li- brary housed in a beautiful Gothic structure, of which Breslin Tower is the most commanding portion. The student will long remember the bells which peal out every quarter hour from this central point of Sewanee. ADMINISTRATION ts V| i J s c vi I 1 yj Without a competent administration a univer- sity WOULD BE UNABLE TO CONTINUE OPERATION, AND WITHOUT A FACULTY POSSESSING LOFTY IDEALS AND A STURDY MORALE THERE WOULD BE LITTLE VALUE IN HAVING A COLLEGE. AT SEWANEE WE HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO HAVE BOTH DEPART- MENTS WELL DEVELOPED. BUT EQUALLY AS IMPOR- TANT AS THESE THINGS IS FREEDOM, THE ONLY POSSIBLE BACKGROUND FOR WISDOM. WE, THE STU- DENTS, SALUTE OUR PRECEPTORS, AND WE THANK THEM FOR THEIR UNTIRING EFFORTS TO BRING ORDER OUT OF OUR CHAOS AND THEIR GUARDING OF SEWANEE ' S FREE HERITAGE. M| BISHOP HENRY ). MIKELL CHANCELLOR O F T H E UNIVERSITY OF THE SOUTH All who are of Sewanee realize that in the cultivation of the mental we must not neglect the spiritual. This, the foremost of Sewanee ' s ideals, is the reason that a churchman is the titular head of the University. The stimulating personality of Bishop Mikell is a never failing source of strength to Sewanee. BOARD OF BE GENTS WARREN KEARNY, D.C.L., Chairman New Orleans, La. RT. REV. HENRY J.

SHELTON Dallas, Texas : ' " DR. ALEXANNE R G U E R R Y VICE-CHANCELLOR OF THE UNIVERSITY The times are ever in want of a leader. Two years ago Dr. Guerry came to a Sewanee that was proud of its long and noble heritage, but a Sewanee that faced bankruptcy. The immediate concern of the new Vice-Chancellor was to remove forever the specter of want from the University. This first objective has been practically completed, even in so short a time. But his policy is more far reaching than this; a beautiful, vital institution that is the expression of the highest that is in the community and that produces men that return to the community possessed by a vision of greater life and the determination to practice it. AT HOME TO THE STUDENTS No record or picture of Sewanee would be complete without notice of the gracious hospitality of Mrs. Guerry. Charm, beauty, and jollity are permanent visitors in this household which has become that of the students. Years hence, equations forgotten, dates fled, and authors no longer remembered, Mrs. Guerry ' s image will remain bright in the hearts of Sewanee men. I 17 J DR. GEORGE MERRICK BAKER DEAN OF THE COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES A Yankee Republican has to be pretty good to stay long in Sewanee, and Dr. Baiter came here long before his students were born. As liaison officer of the College he has admin- istered faculty decrees and heard student complaints with rare tact and good sense. In class good humor and sound scholarship make French and German fascinating studies. DR. RAYARD H. JONES DEAN OF THE THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY Under the leadership of Dean Jones the Theological School has increased the number of its students and made several other changes. Besides his duties as dean, Dr. Jones is professor of Church History. He holds degrees from the University of California, Harvard, General Theological Seminary, and Oxford.

It is uncertain whether Johnny Holmes has ever proved this principle by floating things around in the physics lab, but he gave most of us a start when he floated the Read House around the block, and according to his account, he didn ' t even get seasick. Such things remind us of the time one lazy guy took his date home, swiped Mrs. Rogers ' milk from the porch, held it high and christened it " Grasshopper Milk, " and drank it so that he could hop back to Tuckaway. He happened to be hopping along with a friend of his, James V. (for Cautious) Gillespie, who has always had a fear of stumbling over things left by careless people in the middle of the side- walk. Cautious was picking his feet up  high, shoving them out, and then setting them gently down in front of him, but all this availed him naught, for his com- pass was amiss, and he stepped through Hurlbut Griswold ' s Union door and had to be taken to the hospital for being overcautious.

The primary pur- pose of the Council is to make rushing rules and to coordinate the activities of the fraternities. The presidency rotates among the member fraternities. The members are George Harris and Russell Andrews, Kappa Alpha; Hap Hale and Albert Dade, Delta Tau Delta; Robert Bodfish and Bernard Wrigley, Kappa Sigma; Frank Ball and Stockton Smith, Alpha Tau Omega; Tom Hatfield and Tom Phillips, Phi Gamma Delta; Frank Williams and Phil Evans, Sigma Nu; Jim Gillespie and Gilbert Wright, Phi Delta Theta; and Walker Coleman and John Holmes, Sigma Alpha Epsilon. STUDENT VESTRY The Student Vestry carries on the affairs of All Saints Chapel. They meet with the chaplain to transact such business as may rN come before them. Iveson Noland is senior warden, and Frank kj t Robert is junior warden. The other members are John Nester, Newt Howden, Manning, McKeown, Knickerbocker, DeWolfe, Lyle, and Perot. THE PROCTORS The proctors are the representatives of the administration in the dormitories. Being appointed proctor is one of the high- est honors in Sewanee. Head Proctor this year is Theodore Stoney; the others are Lee McGriff, Al Dade, LaVerne Spake, Marshall Ellis, and Al Chambliss.  PHI BETA KAPPA The highest honor that can come to a college student is elec- tion to Phi Beta Kappa. Organized at William and Mary in 1776, Phi Beta Kappa has grown to include chapters in the best universities all over the country. But it is more than a mere honorary organization. ' The American Scholar, " pub- lished by Phi Beta Kappa, is one of the world ' s finest quarter- lies. The faculty members are Messrs. Gass, Baker, Guerry, Bruton, Knickerbocker, Petry, Ware, Frierson, Mackellar, and Kayden. The student members are Albert Dade, Haywood Emerson, and Erskine McKinley. OMICRON DELTA KAPPA This national leadership fraternity is composed of those stu- dents who are leaders in campus activities. Election is con- fined to those men who have been members and officers of enough student organizations to amass the required number of points. The students who are members are Walker Coleman, president; Theodore Stoney, vice-president; Albert Dade, sec- retary; and Erskine McKinley. The members among the fac- ulty are Messrs. Guerry, Flintoff, Baker, Long, Davis, Gass, and Eaves. B U K This service organization takes its members from those students who are best able to serve Sewanee. The usual policy is to raise money at athletic contests in order to present the Uni- versity with gifts. Blue Key was founded at the University of Florida in 1924. The members are Theodore Stoney, presi- dent; LaVerne Spake, treasurer; Walker Coleman, secretary; Albert Dade, Erskine McKinley, Tom Hatfield, Arthur Whit- tington, Gilbert Wrght, Lee McGriff, Hap Hale, Morgan Hall, Alexander Juhan, George Harris, deRosset Myers, Richard Corry, Clendon Lee, and Carl Schussler. The faculty members are Messrs. Griswold, Scott, Mackeller, and Frierson.  O P H R I M One of the most active organiza- tions on the Mountain this year was Sopherim. Under the able and ener- getic leadership of the president, Er- skine McKinley, the mother chapter of the national literary fraternity, Sigma Upsilon, did more creative work than it has done in many years. Membership is taken from the three upper classes on the basis of papers submitted. Sopherim is divided into four groups, poetry, translation, fic- tion, and nonfiction. Each group meets separately and as often as is necessary to produce work which is presented at the monthly meetings of the entire chapter. This year the material criticized and studied at the meetings has been printed in pam- phlet form in order that criticism might be more direct and helpful. At the end of the year Sopherim will publish a magazine of the best work produced by the members. This will be volume one of the permanent files of the best literary creations of the students of Sewanee. The members are: Erskine McKinley, president; Gil- bert Wright, secretary; Bob Kuehnle, Bill Duckworth, Al Dade, Clendon Lee, Bayly Turlington, Tom Ware, Ashby Sutherland, Ben Cameron, Currin Gass, Bill Asger, Jim Solo- mon, Nick Zeigler, Paul Bachschmid, and Albert Atkins. The faculty mem- bers are Gen. Jervey, Messrs. Gass, Long, Griswold, Knickerbocker, Mar- tin, Moore, Myers, McConnell, and Frierson. Dr. Knickerbocker is a past president of the national organiza- tion. ERSKINE McKINLEY  p I GAMMA M U Pi Gamma Mu recognizes outstanding work in the social sciences and gives students an opportunity to express their views on social questions before a critical group. Meetings are held twice a month at which two papers are read, usually on opposite sides of a question. After the papers have been finished the authors are called upon to defend their positions against the arguments produced by the other members. The purpose of the national frater- nity, started in 1924, is to stimulate thoughtful consideration of problems confronting society from an unbiased viewpoint. The members are Phil Evans, presi- dent; Erskine McKinley, vice-presi- dent; Clendon Lee, secretary; Gil- bert Wright, H. C. Emerson, J. W. Emerson, John Varley, Hap Hale, John Duncan, Manning Pattillo, Bill Eyster, Robert Woodrow, Robert Bodfish, Walker Coleman, and Theo- dore Stoney. The faculty members are Messrs. Guerry, Kayden, Ware McDonald, Thorogood, Long, Myers, and Govan. PHILIP EVANS ' ! j ? I. -H PURPLE MASQUE All those persons who take part in any form of dramatic activity at Sewanee are members of Purple Masque. During the year several plays are given under the direction of William Hosking. Last fall ' " Death Takes a Holiday " was presented very successfully, but further plans have not yet been announced. The members are Hamner Cobbs, president; Dick Higginbotham, secretary; Bill Asger, secre- tary; Ed Petway, William Hosking, John Varley, John Atkins, Bert Atkins, George McCloud, Bill Duckworth, Walter Higgins, Phil Evans, Cress Fox, Hap Hale, George Perot, Stockton Smith, Fred Morton, and Newton Howden. ALPHA PSI OMEGA This national honorary dramatic fraternity draws its membership from among those members of Purple Masque who have shown ex- ceptional talent and industry, by taking major roles in two plays, or writing and producing a play, or by doing unusual work as stage manager. The members are William Hosking, president; Gilbert Wright, secretary; Hap Hale; and Hamner Cobbs. The faculty advisers are Major Mackellar and Mr. H. A. Griswold.  UNIVERSITY CHOIR In the past two years great strides have been made In improving the quality ot the music of the chapel. Increased numbers and more frequent practices under the able baton of Mr. Paul S. McConnell have brought the standard of the choir ' s performance up. So far this year there has been one special musical program consisting of carols and the Advent portion of Handel ' s " Messiah. " Each spring an Easter oratoria is sung, but the name of the one for this year has not yet been announced. The members of the choir are Jack Allin, Paul Bachschmid. Armistead Boardman, Don Cianella, Mat Crane, George Eckles, Bob Fairleigh, Arden Freer, Stanley Gresley, Nagel Haskin, Henry Havens, Claude Hill, Tom Jordan, Alexander Juhan, Clendon Lee, Sperry Lee, James Linard, Erskine McKinley, Douglas Miner, Fred Morton, Jack Nester, Dick Park, George Perot, Frank Robert, Howard Sadler, James Sirmans, Charles Smith, Stock- ton Smith, Ashby Sutherland, Bob Vreeland, Nick Zeigler, and Bob Marshburn. v  ORDER OF GOWNSMEN Unique among college groups is the Sewanee Order of Gowns- men. Composed of juniors and seniors, it is the sole governing body in the University. All committees and student organiza- tions derive their charters from this body, and the standards of conduct of the mountain are set by it. Albert Dade is presi- dent, Walker Coleman is vice-president, and George Harris is secretary. ALBERT DADE SCHOLARSHIP SOCIETY All men who have completed four semesters with an average of eighty-five or better are eligible for membership. The scholarship serves to keep good men from doing only mediocre work and to give the average student something to strive for. Albert Dade is president, George Harris is vice-president, and Dean Baker is secretary. The other members are William Asger, John Atkins, Bert Atkins, Frank Ball, Robert Bodfish, Paul Burns, Frank Dana, Phi! DeWolfe, William Duckworth, John Duncan, David Dyer, Marshall Ellis, Tim Gallavan, Hap Hale, Robert Kuehnle, Clendon Lee, Lee McGriff, deRosset Myers, Frank Robert, Bill Skinner, William Spencer, Paul Thrasher, Shubeal Beasley, Walker Coleman, H. C. Emerson, Kenneth Gregg, Dick Kirchhoffer, Erskine McKinley, Bob Sei- bels, Wilmer Wing, and Gilbert Wright. HONOR COUNCIL 3K No word in a Sewanee man ' s vocabulary is more important than " honor. " The all-pervasiveness and authority of the Honor Code is one of the first things that a freshman notices when he comes to Sewanee, and it is one of the last things he will for- get when he leaves here. To the Honor Council has been given the trust of seeing that the concept of honor stays fore- most in the minds of Sewanee men. Walker Coleman is presi- dent, Robert Seibels is secretary, and the other members are Dick Corry, David Dyer, Charles Wiley, and Frank Greer.  DEBATE COUNCIL The Debate Council is composed of all students interested in debating. From the members of the Debate Council the var- sity team is chosen. A meeting is held, in accordance with the policy inaugurated this year, each week at which practice debates are held followed by critical analysis. This constant practice has had its effect in developing speakers who think rapidly while on their feet, and who speak with more clarity and poise than before. Many intercollegiate debates are held here, and Sewanee has several more away from home. The long debate trip this year will go to Chicago and will include many midwestern schools. Ciendon Lee is president of the Debate Council, Hap Hale is secretary, and the other members are Gilbert Wright, David Dyer, Bill Steele, Newton Howden, and Robert Bodfish.  THE SEWANEE PURPLE No factor in college life is more important than the student newspaper. Without this unifying force, the student body would be nothing more than an aggregation of individuals. This year the " Purple " has added to its columns a regular calendar of events and a larger number of pictures. Increased interest has been shown in the " Purple " by the large number of applicants for positions on the staff. Editor of the " Purple " is Erskine McKinley, Ashby Southerland is managing editor, and Frank Robert is associate editor. Stu- dent Business Manager is Robert Bodfish.

After the first two games, the Tiger seemed to find himself and finished the season with three wins. Moreover, the team had a morale and a confidence in every game that made Sewanee a dangerous foe. Our opening game with the W. and L. Generals was quite a disappointment. Our offense never got in motion on the soggy field, and we were unable to keep the Generals from scoring. The outstand- ing feature of the game was the superb punting of Hagler. The next Saturday Sewanee took on the powerful Tennessee eleven. Completely Sewanee . Sewanee . Sewanee . Sewanee . Sewanee .

P. 1 7 6; Southwestern 7; Chattanooga 10 7; Vanderbilt 25 14; The Citadel 7 0; Tulane 52 outclassed, the team nevertheless kept fighting until the final whistle. Smarting under two defeats, the Tiger plucked every Eagle in sight. On Hardee Field we gained ground, no matter which team had the ball. The student body at the only home game of the season saw the Sewanee line break up plays, block, and tackle as one man, while the backs  showed real coordination in advancing toward pay-dirt. In Memphis against Southwestern ev- eryone thought the game was to end in a scoreless tie, until in the final quarter an intercepted pass by Cranman gave the game to Sewanee. The best game of the year was fought against the University of Chattanooga. A holiday enabled almost everyone to make the game, and from mid-morning on Chattanooga was a gracious host to the horde of Mountaineers that migrated down for the affair. Sewanee took the lead in the first half, but the Moccasins came back hard to push over a touch- down and kick a field goal. A last minute rally gave the Tiger fans a final thrill, but a fumble deep in Chattanooga territory and lack of time stopped Sewanee short. Against Vandy there was the usual hard game. Lucky breaks put Vandy ahead in the first quarter, although Sewanee was knocking the Commodores all over the field. However, the rest of the game be- longed to Vandy, and so did the final score. In Charleston the following week Se- wanee whipped The Citadel. The team was not the only Sewanee group that did well that day; the small but compact band of Tiger supporters started air vibrations that haven ' t stopped yet. The Tiger showed its claws once more when Sandifer kicked up his heels in an eighty-yard return of the opening kickoff against Tulane. Thoroughly beaten, Se- wanee nevertheless showed the spirit that has made it respected wherever the pig- skin is to be found. The last year of Hec Clark ' s coaching career was made happy by a splendid team, paced by Capt. Whittington. p » 4 jh .

Although this article must go to press before the bas- ketball season starts officially, it is possible to make some predictions. When the practice games started, the squad consisted of sixteen men. Six of these men had already had var- sity experience at Sewanee, and seven of them were graduates of last year ' s freshman team. The remaining players were transfers. At the center position the coach can take his choice of three good men. Hewitt, a big red-headed boy from the basketball-playing Midwest, ought to be plenty good in this important position, but he will have to keep on his toes to keep ahead of the other two applicants for the position, Wrigley and Roberts. These two boys, who are having their first crack at varsity competition, are plenty eager to get in there and mix it up, so the post of center is likely to be filled by any one of the three. There are two veterans slated to fill the guard positions. Macon and Whittington both have had plenty of experience, and there aren ' t more serious athletes in the conference than these two boys. However, that is not all there is to the story. Chitty, Apperson, and Welsh will be in there trying for their first varsity basketball letters, and Cran- man, a transfer, will be trying to deliver the goods his BASKET  first season as a Sewanee basketeer. When the going gets tough, there will be plenty of substitutes for this position if they are needed. More- over, the competition for varsity berths will keep all the players on their toes. The situation is equally bright when we take a look at the forwards. Spake and Bodfish are two of the smoothest men Sewanee has had on the basketball court in a long time. Spake, his sophomore year, was high point man on the squad, and his playing was of the same quality last year. Bodfish is a consistent player, and his experience and ac- curacy are a great asset to the team. Morrell, also, has had experience and is plenty fast and tricky when mov- ing toward that goal. Reserve strength is found in Sandifer, Waters, Morris, and Guntherburg. In their practice games the team seemed to click very well, but their work around the basket was not very accurate. This, however, is to be ex- pected at this time, because the boys have only been working out for a short while. In the middle of the court they seemed to be able to get their plays under way with a great deal of coordination and speed. Coach Eaves has had better teams each year he has been here, and from the looks of things this year should be no exception. There is a very good spirit among the players, and if the Christmas holidays don ' t take too much out of them, they should be in fine fettle to take their opponents when they open their sea- son January ninth against Georgia. BALL Frosh vs. Chattanooga Frosh.. Sewanee driving over for a touchdown. Yochem of Sewanee nabbing the ball away from Baylor. The Baby Tigers got off to a very good start in football by smothering the T. P. I. freshmen 27 to 6 in Cookeville. This game saw a real backfield ace show his stuff. All during the game Dan Greer was passing and running with marvelous effectiveness. He was supported by wingmen who just couldn ' t miss, and by the fine punting of Dunn. Their next game was played against the Moccasins on snow covered Hardee Field. The Tigers scored early, but Chattanooga came back to even the score. Both teams were hampered by poor visibility and intense cold. Against the highly rated Vandy team the frosh could do little. The game was evenly fought till the second half when Vandy scored and then played defensive ball to win by six points. At the time this article must go to press the freshman basketball season has only started. So far, the frosh have won a couple of games, but they have lost the same number. Their play is very good on the court, but their shooting has not been very effective. The two offensive stars have been Yochem and Wetzel, who show real ball handling ability. On the defense Marsh- burn looks very good. If during the rest of the season the boys show as much as improvement as they have since the first game, they should have a winning team. FRESHMAN TEAMS 1100] Track season starts at Sewanee with the interfraternity track meet. From among the winners in this meet the team is chosen. It is very early in the season to be predicting what kind of a team Sewanee will have, but there are some very good prospects in school. In the dash events there are such men as Hagler, Higgins, and Fleming, who have real speed. These are all veterans of past seasons, and their experience should stand them in good stead. In the pole vault, Mc- Sriff and Seibels have both had var- sity experience and should be reach- ing top form this year. Two men who stand out in the distance runs are Dyer and Williams. Both of them are past winners of the two mile, and if Williams ' football injury gets all right, this should be one of the team ' s strong points. There was a great deal of talent last year in the freshman class, and these boys will be trying hard in their first year of eligibility for varsity sports. Coach Lincoln has fine material, and with proper cooperation from the boys he should be able to produce a fine team. TRACK TENNIS • • Tennis has always been a popular sport at Se- wanee, and it has become even more popular since the new courts were built. The prospects for a tennis team this year look pretty good. It ' s true that we don ' t have our stars of last year with us, but Kuehnle, Thrasher, Reynolds, and others should make up a fine squad. Plans are in progress to hold the Southeastern Tourna- ment here again this year, because Sewanee courts and hospitality made such an impression last year. GOLF The outlook for the golf team is very bright. Last fall there were some practice matches with other colleges, and Sewanee came through them undefeated. The varsity will be paced this year by Alfred Sams, with such players as Spake, Holmes, and Dana supporting him. The Uni- versity golf course has been improved greatly in the past two years, and by the time the golf season gets underway, it should be in perfect condition. A clubhouse has also been placed on the course, and this addition makes the course much nicer. I 111 One of the most important phases of the Sewanee man ' s life is his participa- tion in a full schedule of sports. Placed in an unrivalled setting, the University offers to every student the opportunity of full physical development and sound health. The program of sports is de- signed so that the student plays games which he will be able to play all through life, benefitting both by the exercise and the comradeship of the playing field. Cups are given to the winning team in each sport, and the team with the great- est number of points receives a large trophy, emblematic of its superiority. The Athletic Board is planning to issue some- time this spring a booklet explaining the rules of all games played here, thus sup- plementing the instruction which is now being given by the coaches. FOOTBALL The intramural football season this year was the best Sewanee has ever had. It was a season of upsets with the Kappa Sigs coming through with only a tie to mar their record. That the teams were evenly matched can be seen from the fact that there were six tie games. At the start of the season, Phi Delta Theta, the winner last year, was picked to win easily, but they ran into a series of ties that put them out of the running. One of the features of play this year was the air-tight defense of the entire league, but the offensive strength of the teams was not impres- sive. The Kappa Sigs had the only offense that was able to gain any real amount of ground. In the standing the Siq Alph ' s were second and the A. T. O. ' s were third. The " Purple ' s " All Greek team was as follows: Left End CARTER (Kappa Sig) Center NESTER (Outlaws) Right End LONGENECKER (Phi Delt) Quarterback MORRELL (Phi Gam) Left Halfback KUEHNLE (Kappa Sig) Right Halfback McCLOUD (Sigma Nu) VOLLEYBALL This year the tall K. A. ' s won the title from the S. A. E. ' s in a playoff. Play- ing on the new court in the old gym the games were able to be held without interruption from gym classes and bas- ketball practice, as has been the case in the past. Several teams looked good in their first games, but they could not keep up the pace set by the K. A. spikers, who rarely missed. Final vic- tory came to them, because they were more coordinated and let the front line do the scoring. BASKETBALL The basketball season starts just after the Christmas holidays, and it finds out who had a good time while at home better even than Cress Fox and Ashley Purse could. Last year the Sig Alph ' s won in the fina l game against the Phi Delta Theta ' s, but it is impossible to say who will take this event this year. The talent to be found in the freshmen may change the complexion of the sea- son, and both the Kappa Sig ' s and the K. A. ' s will be out to get more points toward the big trophy. The A. T. O. ' s are likely to loom up as a threat, be- cause they have a lot of big boys who aren ' t out for varsity basketball. Com- petition is always keen in basketball, because nearly every student tries to get on his fraternity team. This year the games should be especially inter- esting, inasmuch as the coaches plan to devote some of their time to devel- oping good form among the intramural teams. TRACK There is as much interest in the intra- mural track meet as there is in any other athletic event that takes place on the mountain. This is primarily be- cause many of the varsity runners are picked from the winners in this meet. The fine University track is kept in per- fect condition, and interest is aroused by the prep school meets that are us- ually held here during the spring. HANDBALL The University is well equipped with handball courts, and the afternoon doesn ' t pass that they aren ' t used. This fast sport is becoming better liked every year, because it can be played no matter what the weather is or how much time there is left before supper. It is no trouble to get in a few games after lab, and the game provides a good enough workout for even the most hardy. TENNIS Sewanee possesses the finest tennis courts in the South. These all-weather courts on the golf course were the scene last year of the Southeastern Intercollegiate Matches, and it is to be hoped that we will be privileged to see that kind of tennis played on them again this year. It would be impossible to say at this time what fraternity has the best material for a tennis team, be- cause so many of the fraternity repre- sentatives graduated last year. A new crop of players will have to be devel- oped, but in the spring that is no hard task on account of the interest in the game that is so evident at Sewanee. SWIMMING The pool at S. M. A. is the scene of the swimming meet. About fifty boys participated last year, so it is clear that swimming is a popular sport. At the time this article is written the S. A. E. ' s seem to have the best material for a team, especially in regard to dash men, [ 106] but we haven ' t had the opportunity to see many freshmen in action, and some of the teams will undoubtedly be strengthened by this new blood. o The golf course of today isn ' t the same as the one of a couple of years ago, and the work of improving it is still going on. Most of the upperclass- men who are good golfers will be try- ing for positions on the varsity, so the way should be comparatively clear for Jack Wetel, a freshman with plenty of talent, to clean up. Brooks Cotten, however, will be trying to do the same thing, so there are sure to be several good matches this spring. A PROSPECTUS Besides these sports mentioned above, many others are available in our well-equipped gym. Boxing, wrestling, tumbling, work on the bars, and many other healthful recreations are popular among the st udents. Also, Sewanee possesses unparalleled facilities for hik- ing over the large domain. Plans are under consideration to build shelter cabins to which students will hike to spend the night. I. Uqh ... 2.

Without the help of a competent editorial staff and a willing corps of advertisement seekers the editor and the business manager would be helpless. Moreover, it is neces- sary that the photographers, the engraver, and the printer give their full cooperation. The " Cap and Gown " has been fortunate to receive the help and encouragement of all the above mentioned persons, and we are deeply grateful for this interest. Especial thanks is owed to Sandy Juhan for his splendid drawings and his valuable sugges- tions. The Editor has been given full support by the faculty and the administration, and he wishes to thank them for their kindness. Finally, the Editor and the Business Man- ager wish to tell the student body that they have enjoyed producing this annual and that they hope they have in some wise justified the confidence which the students put in them when they were elected.
