He has had his ups and downs. He has won his periodic battles with the faculty, and finally, by dint of cramming and quilling, he is admitted into the fellowship of educated men. By virtue of the power vested in him by the faculty and trustees of this great university, the chancellor has dubbed Mr. Col- lege Man. Sir Knight in the CoLirt of King Intellect. Donning his invulnerable armor of pseudo-education, brandishing his diploma as a thousand years before Sir Launcelot brandished his blood-dripping javelin against the fire-spittijig dragon, he goes out to win fame and fortune in this drab, sordid world of gross materialism. " It may be that the gulfs shall wash us down. It may be we shall touch the happy isles. " The time is 1932. Sir Knight is but a shadow of his former self. The arrogance of his pristine glory is replaced by a servile, boot-licking attitude as he goes about his daily task. Gone is the Finchley suit, the Stetson bonnet, the Sulka tie, the Frank Bros, shoes. In their stead is a shoddy, threadbare, job-lot suit, the same Stetson hat, now five years old and broken in spirit ' neath the beat of many rains; shoes worn through to the welt, a shotstring necktie. Sir Knight needs a new coat of mail. { He buys it from Sears-Roebuck.) And then he wins a jousts He starts to climb the ladder of prosperity. Instead of the collegiate fag hung precariously from one corner of his sophisticated and knowing mouth, we find the thick, vile-smelling cigar of success. And his ideals are changing. The first manifestation of this is found in his shoes. They become thick-soled, broad- toed. And his trousers become several inches larger in the waist. He forgets the fraternity, the football game, the tea-dance, the gorgeous girl. He goes home each night, to a slightly time-worn, sharp-tongued wife. And although he keeps the col- lege man ' s late hours, he does not spend them in bull sessions or pool games. He walks a howling, colic-stricken brat into quiet. His sideburns become a bit powdery. And finally — A handsomel -dressed youth comes into his office. Sir Knight to the youth does say: " So you ' re a college man. Well, I won ' t hold that against you. " :5 y S3 " Y mxyr zor I ' 4. DKDL COMMOTjCTRE K ' Tke Senior Engineers Are Leaving But the question is: What are they leaving and what are they getting into? They entered here, some four and some five years ago, with ambitious ideas, with visions of easy sailing through college life, with visions of a successful career following. Some aspired to build huge dams across mighty rivers of swift and dangerous currents. Others aspired to build enormous bridges across unspanned streams. They had no doubt at that time of their ability to do the many things dreamed of during prep school days. The first year did not seem so very bad — Math I, English i. Chemistry i, Descrip- tive Geometry, Drawing. None of them were so very hard, but still there was some- thing wrong. The romance of the whole dream was fading — at least, something was obscuring it. All wanted to do outdoor work. The idea of the " great wide open spaces " appealed to them and the long afternoon " lab " periods were truly a pain. But it was just a breaking-in period. Something different was to follow, each felt sure. The Soph year came around — Math 2, Mechanics i. Surveying i, Drawing 2, Physics 2. This could not be right, they thought. Surely something must be wrong. But they endured it, hoping for better things in the future. And they decided to enjoy life more. Afternoon labs were " cut, " more dances were attended, keeping company with the Academic students. It was too good to be true. Courses were conditioned and busted. The " Profs " were heartless. New examinations had to be taken. But even then something was wrong. Many questions were entering their minds. And only vague answers resulted. The Junior year dawned and they felt important — Mechanics 2, Thermo Dynamics, Masonry Structure, Physics 2, Surveying 3, Chemistry i. Geology 2, and others were on the schedule. More labs, long nights of work, everything seemed to be getting harder. Everyone ' s mind was in .somewhat of a fog. Countless derivation of formulas for Dr. Schuerman, everything seemed to be theory — nothing practiced. And still they wondered. They felt that they were missing something — that they were not having the good times they should. But it was not over yet — the Senior year was coming and grand and glorious times were planned. And again they spent a year wondering what it was all about. And why. Steel Structures, Steel Detailing, Municipal Engineering, Astronomy, Metallurgy, etc. This year passed off quickly — no one realized that it could be past history so soon. This year, too, was somewhat likened to a foggy day. They griped at the Academic stu- dents for playing so much. They griped at the Profs for giving so much work. They griped at the world in general. Each one had a chip on his shoulder. And then it was all over. And they are still wondering if they are ever going to know what it is all about. One could not attempt to say much about the future. Some of the boys will for- sake their engineering career. Some will be draftsmen all their lives— others will be mediocre engineers. Some few will rise to note and fame — yes, some few. 54 ::tor AJ xyy o o o 10 o on y Oil MMOijora A Law Sckool ' N September, 1924, some sixty young men and one young lady — some with three vears of academic work seeking to obtain their B.A. with the last year of law; some football stars seeking to avoid the morning classes; others special students, and the majority those who had completed the one year pre-legal course and now " after that LL.B. " — enrolled in the Vanderhilt Law School, not knowing what was really ahead. Some say the first year was the hardest — maybe so. Outstanding in our mind is Fitzgerald Hall, fondlv(?) called " Fitz, " professor of Agency, who, since leaving the faculty, has dis- tinguished himself bv leading the fight for Prohibition and the ultimate extinction of intoxicating liquors. Then there was the versatile Dr. Schermerhorn, at that time adding the secretarial duties of the Law School to the already heavy burdens on his shoulders of the Parthenon, Centennial Club, and Little Theater Guild (ex-Pennsylvania Masque and Wig). And no one will forget the soothing voice of " Daddy " Lawrence, which has enabled many a student to forget Ins troubles — only to wake up when the clock struck. But the chief claim to fame of the 1927 lawyers is the fact that they were the first to under- go the cruel practices exercised by John Howard ( " Scrappy " ) Moore, who came to the Law- School facultv after having served for three years as constable in Herrin, Illinois. Bringing a buggy whip to class, Prof. Moore would wield it at the slightest provocation, and this con- tinued until the climax was reached when Prof. Moore unmercifully thrashed little " 5th Card — Kit Kat " Roddy for answering " Here, " instead of " Present, Sir, " to the roll-call. This aroused the ire of the entire class, and a conference was held between Prof. Moore and a committee of the three best students, viz: Messrs. " Necessity " (necessity knows no law) Bunton, P. A. D. Cart- wright, and " Fisty " Moore, the result being that an agreement was reached whereby Prof. Moore was to refrain from future acts of cruelty. He has done so fully, and today he is as gentle and considerate as any professor, and In no way does he resemble his former self. The next vear found scarcely more than half of the former Freshman Class back, due to a majority of them receiving their B.A. And in the junior law year began the most pleasant ex- perience that anv Vanderbilt law student ever goes through with, which continues through the senior year — that of having a class under Mr. Ed Seay. Save for the appearance of Mr. White and Judge Malone, the junior year was more or less uneventful. But this last year, the senior year, found every member of the class working — even Russell and Sanders bought books — for the diploma was looming now as a possibility, anyway. The course was made harder by the appearance of a new professor of Trusts, Mr. C. Q. (Cestui Que) Hendrick, but that was survived by most of them, as was Constitutional Law and Wills, the result of this being that thirty-five members of this great Class of 1927 will depart from the University on June 8, with diploma in hand, to conquer the world. And this Law Class of 1927 is a great class — who can doubt that? Where can such legal minds be found to match those of Cochran, Hunt, Street, Petrie, and Schlater? What class possesses as fine an orator as Dave Caldwell, winner of the Founder ' s Medal and the Frank K. Houston prize? Who can boast of a poker player of Levi Cooper ' s caliber, of a " Mexican athlete " to equal Bill Martin, of anyone as handsome as John McCall, and of such a lover (on the stage) as Ada Bell Sutherland? And this class has made distinct contributions to the Uni- versity: Zach Coles, " Gripe " Reid, and Red Sanders to football; Captain John McCall and Bill Martin to the 1927 S. L C. Basketball Champions; and Captain Sanders and Freddie Russell to baseball. Goodbye, future judges, justices, congressmen, senators, president — as you have been an asset to Vanderbilt, so, too, may you be an asset to the world. 55 " VAnxyy 3 or o V mE7Ae COMMOW } .. L ' E nvoi HE stubby candle burns low, the erstwhile brilliant light flickers and fades, and the shadows gather in the corners. Soon it will die away, and the artisans, their working time expired, will see the products of their labor go forth to bring credit or shame upon their makers. Vastly different bits of raw material they had upon which to work. Four years they have labored upon them, molded them, often transformed them. Now they near completion : no standard- ized, formularized product, but separately functioning, highly individualistic entities, each the resultant, as it were, of its heredity and its environment. We, the Class of ' 27 in Medicine, are these products. It remains for us to show how well our preceptors have wrought. To us, Vanderbilt is a poignant, vivid fact, yet a sacred, holy tradition. We have witnessed the metamorphosis of the Old into the New, the dawn of a Newer Day. We hope we have been found not lacking; we hope we will continue to be found not lacking. Few realize the beauty of such intimate association as we have had, — four years of daily, day-long intercourse, fighting, squabbling, working, loving, — or how fraught with sadness is the thought of the day, so long anticipated, when we go out to scatter to the ends of the earth, to have left of beloved friends but an ever-dimming memory. But, though we must separate, our union will not dissolve, for we shall continue in the bonds of professional fellowship, united then as now in the undivided purpose. to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield!

The Fresh resnmen (An imitation of Aleck Pope by Louisa Allcutter) The Muses cry out liiijli in paijan joy At entrance of a youtli so sivecl and coy On road iv iic i throut li the patlis of wit do lead To fame for those who kindly Fate will heed. The freshman meekly wends his way to school — • Tliougli mama ' s dear, a silly little fool, If ' ho thinks that knowledije can be gained this way: TJirough books and talk and classes grave and gay. Illusions are his major stock in trade — He fondly thinks that girls and dreams are made Of things alike. The sophomore he thinks A hero, who through weight of wisdom drinks Bad gin. On girls who walk abroad at dark He looks askance, until down by the park A sophomore is seen to take her hand — So then he joins the stream of trickling sand. Though failing at the campus jobs he heeled — (To trii ' e, to seek, to find, and not to yield,) Through winged words of Southland ' s prophet wise He finds at last where his real talent lies: In social life — the balanced cup of tea Upon the lap — a wench astride the knee; .night with flames of passion ' s hot embrace He drools his infant kisses on her face. irith liquor, songs and girls thus well equipped, IFe find the virgin neophyte lias slipped Into the lousy soph ' more . . . something BL.4H- Poetic license (expires May 2J, l()2y.) Little Madison Sarratt If the young man whose feat- ures we herewith portray follows in the footsteps of his illustrious father, a certain member of the class of 1945 will be one of the most popular students ever to have attended our university.

R. Webb " Tell them to lead a large life. " A large life is not a life that ' s a mere pifHe, but one that makes the world a bet- ter place because you have lived. " — Last words of " Sawney " Webb, ad- dressed to " his boys. " Vanderbilt ' s Tribute to Prof. Webb At the regular chapel exercises on Wednesday, January 12, 1927, Chancellor Kirkland paid tribute to the late Prof. W. R. Webb. The faculty and student body united in adopting the following statement as an expression of their sorrow in the passing of so great a man and as an appreciation of his long and distinguished career: " The faculty and student body of ' anderbilt t ' niversity, in chapel assembled, realize with deep regret the death of Prof. W. R. Webb and would pay tribute to him as a great teacher and a great personality. For fifty years Webb School has been one of the chief elements in the work and influence of Vanderbilt University. In the early years of the University ' s history, the school sent the best prepared students and enabled the I ' niversity to maintain from the beginning high standards of admission and graduation. The alumni of the two institutions united in the establishment of other preparatory schools of the same type and thus contributed to the making of one of the finest chapters in the history of Southern education. During all these years, Webb boys have been an important influence in the life of the University. " While to his brother, the late John M. Webb, and to his son, W. R. Webb, Jr., should be attributed much of the success of the school, we recognize the leadership of Prof. " Sawney " Webb as the prime factor, not only in the maintenance of sound standards of scholarship, but in the emphasis on ideals of honor and righteousness, every student who ever came) under his influence caught something of his abhorrence of hypocrisy and immorality and of his courage and faith. His career as an independent and fearless citizen, ready at all times to throw him self into the support of civic righteousness, is a shining example of the union of education and disinterested service. " Vanderbilt University would extend to his bereaved family and to the faculty, student body and alumni of Webb School its sincere sympathy in so great a loss. There should be some comfort in the realization of his long, useful and distinguished career, which will remain an inspiration to all who are concerned with the educational and moral development of this section and of the nation.

Of comic face — ahpears iniquitous In manners and the things that ever count When nobler passions to the bosom mount. He is not yet quite dry behind tlii ears; But often, like a solid ass he rears Up on his hind legs luith forlorn pretense To wisdom deep tlirough all his poor dimense. He is in truth a noble of the earth! That brings the din of Babel ivith his birth; In bawling out in lusty baby breaths The tenor of his age-old shibboleths: " To harry man, and set at last at naught The too thin sum and store of human thought. That, thinking not, vain Man shall cease to think, And, thinking not, to common level sink. " He then is come lo be a sophomore ; And barring for all time pure Learning ' s door. He turns content to life of maudlin sound — • Tlie braying jack! the silly yapping hound! ( ' Tis true he sometimes rises bravely out Of ignorance, his nit-wit peers to flout; But most, through venom of insipid mind, Have found their level with the grunting swine.) Here then a quite amusing paradox! The sophomore, intent on planting knocks. Sees not that it ' s himself he really mocks. III. The Juniors A let-down from the gusty sopli ' more state, Tlie junior is for morbid thoughts good bait, IVho, knowing he moves, knows not which way he turns, And turning, finds that still he aching yearns For whatf His will is good but lacks intent To seize upon some thing that never meant A hoot to him. Il ' liat is this life about? Is it to be a drunken pagan routf Or on the other hand, how else can it Be seen as other llian a sad misfit? How can he choose between emotion pure And reason, as for all man ' s ills a cure — irlien told tliat both are wrong, and lacking sense To see that alt philosophers are dense Save he himself? He will no credit give His own. His mind becomes a fine mesli sieve. IVhen told that Iiot is hot in college class He must exception find, the silly ass! To know tliat knowledge is in truth Life ' s tool Inclines tlie lad to make a bungling fool Out of himself; he credits none that ' s done — Not love nor earth nor fiery flaming sun, Until he ' s put his finger on them all — And finds them turned lo nasty bitter gall. A little learning spoils the childish brain; And though he is really very sane, A little thinking proved loo great a drain. go ZLOT.

Formerly the Pan-Hellenic Council published " The Comet " and later the Commodore, until it was given over to the student body as a whole in 1912. There are sixteen chapters of national fraternities represented in this organization. The Pan-Hellenic also encourages and sponsors interfraternity basketball, baseball and track, and a silver loving cup is presented to each winning team by the council. A silver cup is also given each year to the fraternity attaining the highest scholastic average for the year. Besides this the council works for good feeling and harmony among the ranks of the rival Greeks and promotes friendliness and good will. O 94 ■HOT. • Y NDY - ZO n m DAe COMMOIORE m o or Tke College Fraternity HAT the college fraternity as developed in America has become a valuable and an integral part of our educational system is the inevitable conclusion of any thoughtful observer in the field of education. Exactly one hundred and fifty years ago the fraternity system as we know it was inaugurated at William and Mary College with the founding of Phi Heta Kappa. Today it exists in every state in the Union but two. The National Interfraternity Conference held in New York in November, 1926, was participated in by around sixty national social fraternities (not honorary nor pro- fessional). They represented a living membership of about three hundred thousand men. The value of houses owned by their chapters reaches the amazing total of seventeen million dollars. Here at Vanderbilt the fraternity system was inaugurated almost simultaneously with the opening of the l " niversity. The first chapter to be established was Phi Delta Theta, which was followed the next year by Kappa Sigma and four years later by Delta Tau Delta. We have now sixteen national social fraternities which include in their membership a little more than half of the men in the University. In the houses maintained by these chapters, the students have found comfortable living quarters during their college years, and in the congenial groups there, many opportunities for social intercourse, for good fellowship, for mutual improvement and for intellectual companion- ship. In the absence of adequate dormitory facilities, this one fact alone might seem to justify their existence in the university. However, the college fraternity must furnish something more than a pleasant rooming house if it is to maintain its place in college life. To do this, it must be just what the name implies — a brotherhood. It is a group of congenial men bound together by a sacred oath for mutual, moral, intellectual and spiritual development. Here at least, fraternity must not be a myth nor brotherhood a mockery. A good fraternity man must be ever ready to place the good of the whole above his individual good, and to sacrifice, if needs be, his own pleasure and comfort to help his less fortunate brother. In recent years, both locally and nationally, there have developed in fraternity circles two ideas: First, that fraternity loyalty must not eclipse university loyalty, and, second, that the purpose of the fraterinty Is identical with that of the university. The university stands for truth and knowledge; so does the fraternity — and these do not come without strenuous intellectual effort. The university demands hard study and educational progress; so must the fraternity. " The fraternity must be baptized with the spirit of the university. " What is the future of the fraternity? That depends upon what its members make it. If, as fraternities claim, a man is a better man because of his four years in his fraternity, then there need be no question of their future. " By their fruits ye shall know them. " If, in fraternity circles, the emphasis is rightly placed, the fraternity man, during his years in college and after, will furnish the best possible proof of the value and significance of the college fraternity in American education.

Dear 19 27 Commodore: I understand that you want me to review the glories of Phi Delta Theta and all I want is a chance. We had our usual colorful competition with the Sigma Alphs during rushing, and of course we conquered again. Brother Keeble finessed them backwards and won the only dubious freshman, and we are still giggling at the resounding thud with which they hit the bump. The publications are ours now by tight of inheritance, and we hand them down from generation to generation. Politically the Phi-coed-Deke combine is as famous as ever the Tinker-Evers Chance combine was in baseball. Brother Armstrong has bequeathed his Ford to Cookie Williams, since he will have a Caclilbc when this sorry Commodore comes out and accumulates all cur money. The honor ' hich the fraternity cherishes most came when Brother Overton Williams received the title and office of Old Faithful in the Cookie Cl-.b as a reward for valiant services rendered. Socially, ah. socially wc are the well known stuff and are still supreme. Brothers Dec Booth. Jake Berkley and Fish Harris are Peabody Papas and head the On To Peabody movement. Brother Laird Smith is known on the campus as Dean of Women and is a sure successor to Ada. while en masse the chapter guards the d:or at open houses and deb parties. Numerically we are super- strong, but our get together meetings are causing the brothers to meet and rerognize one another, and by dividing the chapter into halves and allowing use of the house on alternate weeks we are avoiding traffic congestion. The downfall of Houserr ma Street has given the chapter much concern, but daily prayer meetings arc doing much to remedy the situation. Brother Guil. ' ord Dudley, accompanied by his nurse and chauffe ;r. may daily be seen touring the campus in a Cadillac, but wherht. he is pursuing learning or c:eds we have not been able to ascertain cp to date of publication. An epidemic of appen- dicitis which swept the chapter daring 1926 has been de.initelv traced to Harvey ' s cooking, although some are unkind enough to say that the shock sustained by Brother Smith when coming from under the influence of ether stopped the rest of the boys. It was a boy. Signed, lovingly yours.

Look at our athletic reputation. There ' s Son Thompson, famous for his feats in interfraternity contests. Everybody knows Vaughn Blake, too. He is the smiling quarter miler who tells his opponents jokes during the 440 yard dash. Harry Jenkins could have been athletic, but was too weighted down with other things. We have several of our alumni en the faculty, but we never brag about it. In fact it is a tradition in our group to stay as far away from classrooms as possible. Many fraternities dis- continue meetings during the Christmas holidays, but far be it from us. We convened just about every night. Some of our meetings were sponsored. Our boy Norfleet displayed his accuracy during chapel one day, and will probably be considered as a prospective hurler in the spring. What difference does it make if the apple he threw found its mark during the repeating of the Lord ' s Prayer by those present? Sarratt didn ' t like it, but we thought it was clever. Sleek haired Levi Cooper from Cookeville. our bottle baby, boasts of having the longest name known to humanity. It includes such epithets as Ludor, Peylian. and Hezikiah. We have a corner on the Student Council which comes in rather handy at times. Our Black Hatted Politicians are rather prominent figures on the campus. The secret of our success lies in the fact that the only food our weaker cohorts require in return for their political services is large quantities of renewed promises. Our last year ' s triumphs were wide-spread — all hail our B. U.!! I wish I might write something for myself, but I must keep up my usual reputation for modesty and making myself in- conspicuous. Consequently I ' ll sign off. Insanely. :::;Ii-J- l$--v 105 OE " YANW 3Cor no i j i or m OAe COMMOTjOTJB 1 IJF l « ' ' ; ==x. fr- J m - ' ' — Ia Top Row — BoikI. Wright, Norred. MeKinley, Coleman.

Dear Budding Journalist: Speaking of the coming fraternities at Vandcrbilt. consider the Deltas and how they grow. With our new house. Jesse Keene, and Don McNevins ' automobiles and social prestige, we really look good. And Jimmy Melton, our singing saxo- phonist, comes over every rushing season. Then we also have brothers Sweeney and VanNorred. Both are dormant athletes, but at dance promoting they have no equals. What if the dances last summer were a bit dark? We made enough money for a bath tub and other fixtures. Of course our neighbors objected, but. as Brother Van aptly put it. " On with the dance — let joy be unrefined. " We are sorry about our brother Blah Brown. His ineligibility leaves our football fame up to Norred. We want to issue an invitation to all prospective freshmen to visit our new house and if possible to help us pay for it. We bought the front porch last year. Brother Wee Debutante Jones still drops by occasionally. He has started a temperance unit, and most of our good brothers have taken their stand with him on the liquor problem. Even cur freshmen have established an unprecedented reputation for scbriety. Shades of Willie Stack! Hoping to see this in print. I remain Sincerely yours.

Brother McKonnico, our very versatile cheer leader and band master, is open for an interview on this subject at any time, provided he is not playing golf or assisting " Convict " Capers in some of his activities. Since Brother Smith left, political conditions on the campus are unsettled, and the Phi ' s loom up rather large on the horizon. Here is another case where there is much strength in a little " jug. " We are quite well represented in social circles by Brothers " Debutante " Cargile, " Sugar " Bridges, and " Second- Section " Moss, who are bringing great glory to the chapter. It seems that Brother Moss has a great fondness for riding the second section of in-bound Nashville trains around Christmas-time. Perhaps he wants to give the other man a sporting chance. Prospects in athletics look bad since Brother " Josh " Cody left, but we are counting much on Brother Bristow. if the University just wouldn ' t be so annoying in regard to a few little rules. If you need any noise for any occasion, just let me know Idiotically yours. MU ' -x t ! i f u.d uC2{_ 113 ' YA ' Nxyy 3 or 30 DhOAe COMMOIjO-RB . § Top Row — Wells, W. K. Porter. E evoe. Calleii.

If Brcthcr " General " Lee and " Pumper " Doss will stop breaking bottles downstairs for a few moments. I will try to compose my mind long enough to tell you all about us. Brother Doss is a great business man as is proved by his connection with the Hustler and his late connection with the ideal Laundry. His motto is " never let business interfere with convivial activitiei. " He is in col- laboration with a friend and has organized a club to compete with the owls — they call themselves the " Lock-Step Boys. " Since Brother " Larry " Long has become a hard-working, sober doctor. " Pumper " has stepped in to fill the gap fn the ranks (before the bar). Brothers Bill Porter. Babe King, and Bob Woods represent us quite ably, though we ' ll have to admit our social prestige has dropped some since Brother Ed Price left our midst. Our black brothers engaging in a damp business in the base- ment have suspended operations for fear of being killed by the falling stones of the foundations. We are hoping with the aid cf our dearly-loved (?) house-mother to persuade our alumni to give us the new house we have been promising benighted pledges for the last ten years. With all wishes for a big year. I remain Very simply yours. ;S.---dL O Pt -ji- " 7 or % NDy nOTL 30 ®1.T¥ ( DL COMMOTjOT A ii8 if . d . ; - m .H0 = •?K = £ m O c o led 4 - o - » ,- . 5q ? o I H I ° sS 3or NDy. o 30 ? or r £7Xe COMMOIP-REr F Beta TKeta Pi FmiTideil a( Miami I ' liiversity, Oxford, Oliin, July, 1839 Colors: Pink nnd I,i«lit Uliie Floicrr: Rose Beta Lambda Chapter Establij hed 1SS3 FrATRES IX FaCI ' I.TATE V.

Dear Commodore Editor: The main thing about us Betas is that we ' re so intellectual. One of our famous Eldred twins has already made Phi Beta Kappa, and we have hopes of the other one duplicating the feat. In fact, he has dropped out of Irby Hudson ' s Political Bull 1 3 just for that pur- pose. He said there wasn ' t any justice in Irby ' s methods. It really is hard to quill Dr. Hudson unless one knows how. And then there ' s dear brother Dismukes. He ' s been with us so long we regard him as part of our energetic alumni. Brother Dismukes ' intellect cinched the very delicate task of excusing absences at the University. Con- sequently, we have set apart every Wednesday as Beta day. when wc all stay home from school and talk of Wooglin. dogs, and other vital aspects of our fraternity. That is. all stay home except our beloved Owenby. He is simply morally obligated to do his part at school in helping his professors conduct their classes. There has been liquor in our house, but we weren ' t guilty. Our alumni representative at Caldwell li Co. brought it out just to show us what liquor really looked like. Our dashing fullback. Tiger Sharpe. is another drawing card. Wc are banking a great deal on his wife ' s Cadillac to help us in rushing next year. Furthermore, we can always count on a freshman of some description from Columbia. Tennessee. Brothers Nicholson and Pig Evans, culinary experts, never fail to return with something. Signed, pji -.

Dear Editor of the Commodore: It is with some pardonable pride that we point to the achievements that our chapter has made possible. Some of the most noteworthy ones arc as follows: Champion bridge team of the University, composed of Dan Brooks, Dean Sarratt. Mark Collier, and Alden Smith; four of the best all-round athletes in the personages of brothers John Marshall McDonald. Lawson Yates. George and Nig Waller, the Bessemer, Ala.. Hoodlums: the beer-drinking cup which was unanimously awarded to brother " Old Folks " Petrie; a nice set of perfectly fitting harness presented to B. U. (tt) Rountree for his tenth year in fraternity basketball. Transfers came to our aid again this year, thereby saving us. due to the fact that for the sixteenth consecutive year we failed to pledge over three freshmen by Xmas. This year we had planned to cap a number of the left-overs but to our dismay they replied to our bid that they were quite satisfied. However, we expect to have a grand rushing season next fall as brother Nabo Thomas is planning to give a buffet supper at the chapter house the night before matricula- tion for the prospective pledges. Socially, speaking, we intend to give a dance sometime during the year. We are unable to set an exact date as we are trying to secure brother Lawson Yates ' orchestra to furnish music I. ' ) It will be extremely difficult, we fear, to engage this orchestra in question as brother Yates informs us that he is " booked " through 1929. By the way. with the exception of himself, brother Yates has a very good band. His solo singing, to which the orchestra strives to accompany, is his only redeeming feature, but the worst part of it is that he in- variably sings both verse and chorus. We lose Nig this year but George will probably be with us for some years to come, that is if he expects to graduate from the medical school.

" but we know that we have more pressing engagements than any other frat. In spite of bad checks Brother Butterfield managed to become solvent enough to furnish us with a big Hudson car for rushing. We won a golf cup last year when Brother Nuss- baum crashed through with the municipal trophy (16th flight) with Brother Nubbin Stewart as faithful caddy. Brother Griper Reid has the largest quantity of lead---both before and behind---than any other member. Brother Lena Mills Boult curdled---be2 your pardon---choraled at the Ward-Belmont open house and has been black-balled from that institution hereafter. Since the Burk Terrors have reclaimed their own, prospects look bad. but if Brother Pi Hays can keep away from flu we may come out. Brother Red Sanders has usurped the power from the K.A. ' s that was held so long and in such esteem by Gerald Fay. and he is now known as District Jail Inspector of Davidson County. Come to our dances and broad-en your social acquaintances among the gentle sex---for fuller in- formation see Brother Ray Fowler. Last, but by no means least, may I mention that I am still pilot in this stable. Modestly yours, P. S. --Delayed rushing holds no fears for us--- Oscar Butterfield has a button in his pocket. 129 or: " wm XTif zor 20 g o % OKOAe COMMOTjQRB .K § ' nor 130 • i-r- - " = SS 3| Kl - f r.

Dear Commodore: Here ' s a little notice that I ' ve found time to send you about us boys in dear old Delta Kappa Epsilon. We aren ' t rivalling our Yale chapter just at present due to lack of numbers, since Brothers Foster and Baird left us flat this year, but we hope to be second to our most illustri- ous chapter some day. Anyway, we have Brother Hendrix, who ' s a Deke chapter all by himself. Brother " Swine " McKibbon helps uphold our reputation on the football field, also. It is rumored that he has had much business in the neighborhood of 8th Ave. and the reservoir lately. Morchheimer shines for us in the social whirls of the city, while Underwood is the co-ed ' s delight. Since that most delightful public ex- hibition of osculatory exercises in the Hillsboro Theatre, it is said that he is besieged by eager co-eds on every side. It is doubtful if he can supply the demand, though we all give him credit for being a pugnacious pugger. Brother " Frick " Nance is an ace in the world of philosophy and will soon become a deadly rival of " Cocky " Sanborn. Dear Brother " Buzzard " Edwards is soon to leave us to go to South America with the United Fruit Company, which deals largely in bananas. As regards myself. I am modest, so will say that my general appearance is unchanged. Sorrily yours. :f : t- 133 or Y NDY i: zor a;o o £7Xe COMMOIJO-RE . Q 134 - 1 ' — - — u 30 r 60 o cK 5 - :« -?.

Dear Commodore: We ' ll have to admit that our social and athletic prowess is almost gone. Brother " Country " Oliver keeps in good training by man-handling various of the brothers. Then. too. Brother McGill will uphold our reputation as long as paper and bottles (ink. of course) hold out. Brother Roddy is our sole bid socially. He has. however, unfortunately been barred from the Klit Klat Klub for running a rival attraction to the entertainers. Since Brothers Kirkes and Morris left, we have lost out almost entirely with the darker element. Still, the moral tone of the chapter has come up some, due to the steady Puritanical in- fluence of the two Fants and Parsons. Brother " Pete " Stubbins. out best understudy of Brother Kirkes. became incapacitated shortly after Thanksgiving due to his strenuous activiites, and had to withdraw from the university. The intellectual atmosphere of the chapter is ably sustained by Brother Fulton, seconded by the two Fants. Brother Hinkle of our Sing Sing chapter spent a very profit- able summer with us. and departed leaving the brothers proud possessors of their eye-teeth and a large store of experience. He represents us in the Navy now. This report as a whole sounds rather discouraging, but cheer up — I have attained my ambition in becoming a newsboy.

Dear Commodore: Divided we stand ( ? ) . and united we would fall, from sheer surprise if for no other reason. We are earnestly striving to model the local chapter after the northern ones, and so far we ' ve had clear sailing. True, we have to re-enact the Civil War on occasions, but the results make it well worth while. Our new high-pressure rushing system is causing much com- ment about the campus. We ' ll let you in on the secret, but don ' t tell---wc don ' t start rushing a man until he ' s already pledged to some other frat! Brother Schermerborn tipped us off to this naive trick, and we ' ve been blisters ever since. Brother Wop Dangler, Studebaker and all. is our most promi- nent man about the campus. Everybody knows him but nobody recognizes him. There ' s a conundrum for you. We lost our sole representative in the Commodore Club, but we refuse to worry over trivial matters. Freddie Shannon wasn ' t here to politic for us. and that settles that. Some are unkind enough to say that he quit in disgust, but we know better. We have the largest representation at the Bijou every Friday night, and that should prove to you that we don ' t go to dances when we don ' t get bids. Our sweatbox ran a hot-box last spring, and for a time we were in high hopes of collecting our insurance and paying what we owe. but some of the other frat men about were too diligent and they put the damned thing out. Joe Byrnes (son of Congressman Joe Byrnes, and don ' t you forget it) enlivens our chapter meetings with his oratorical efforts. Unfortunately his classes downtown interefere some- what with his scholastic endeavors, but he ' s ambitious, th ough why we don ' t know. Ralph Luton and Tid Bits Bynam did something cute re- cently, but we can ' t remember what it was and it probably isn ' t printable anyway.

PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY Nashville. Tenn. Dear Commodore or Brother Cale: The Phi Kap national convention which was held in this city gave us a fair start on the year in spite of the fact that we were the hosts. All in all a great time was had by all except Ray James, who actually had on a tux and was playing the bull of the ball. The " Ball " will furnish Nashville ' s darkhorses with considerable to talk about for sometime to come, as there was a Phi Kap horse for every nightmare. We had planned a great rushing scascn and had everything sewed up. but Abernathy caused everything to rip open when he pledged ATO. Apple- gate seemed to think it was because the badges of the two fraternities are somewhat alike, but Applegate has been in a fog since Pritchard departed and le. ' t him without a soulmate. We are expecting to have great success in athletics this next year, as Brother Jack Overall is to take over Josh Cody ' s position as assistant coach of varsity football. He makes all of the dances (still) and should have developed quite a line by spring. Our freshman supply became rather endangered when we learned that Castle Heights had gone bankrupt, but every- thing is beginning to look rosy once again, as the school is staging quite a comeback. However, any school would be expected to go on the rocks for awhile at least, after turning out Butt Bostick and Bilious Baird in the same year. These boys are perfectly good brothers in the bonds of old Phi Kap, and both are strutting their respective stuffs in football — not at Vanderbilt but at Cumberland- -where it is rumored that Baird made the second All Wilson County team which was picked by Bostick. Brother Cale Haun is contemplating adding a new story to the chapter house. We do not know where the money is coming from, but we might add that he is business manager of the Commodore and is publishing stuff like this. Wc arc very proud of transfers, that is. as long as they arc not from DePauw. But they arc not all like Brother Lockyear--- thank God. In conclusion let us announce that Brother Everett Hoot Gibson will not run for B. U. this year. He says that once is enough.

Dear Mooney Man of the Commodore: We got through rushing season this year without losing a man to the Dekes. and as a result we haven ' t been bumped by them since we lost Loeb in 1921. Alcng with the Sigma Chis we jointly edit the Hustler, if any. since Paul Doss so successfully mismanaged it last year. A number of our bright young freshmen are reputed to have a nose for news, and while we cannot vouch for the news item the rest is certainly true. Brother Lehman Lusky ' s photo is enshrined along with that of Bennie Friedman, and we arise daily at 8 A.M. to worship. Our chapter house is used largely to break the journey from the YMHA or Joe Morse ' s to the Woodmont Club, which we sometimes jestingly call the Annex, and where we hold our nightly revels. Brother Maron Simon holds the throne at these endurance con- tests, ably assisted by Brother Hallie Lyons, who came direct from New York ' s East Side Honky Tonks to spread culture among the barbarians. The only excuse discovered for the existence of Bro. Lyon ' s mustache so far is that it has not yet discovered to whom it is attached. Brother Simon Wiles and Dear Robinson jointly run the medical school, and Bro. Wiles ' ability to swipe drinkable alky from the embalming room has made him the most sought after man in the chapter. Incidentally it would take something like that to make him sought after, unless the bulls wanted him. We are ready to admit that we made a mistake and missed a trick by not pledging Sammie Wcingarden. but how were we to know that he was going to be a Phi Bete? One of the brothers reminds me that we were bumped years ago by the Deltas on Shaneberger. but he quit school and went to Yale, so we don ' t consider that a real loss. We rotate our three representative bid to all the fraternity dances, and since we never give a dance ourselves we are able to be well organized fcr the Pep dances at the YMHA. That ' s all the chapter news for tonight. Here ' s hoping that the editors of the Commodore ride in Cadillacs this spring. Signed, C £u — ?i4v£ 148 " XOT.

Dear Commodore: You ask us to expostulate, here goes. First our boy Cowboy Jones, from the wild and wooly West, though not proficient in riding horses since being here, has almost become equestrian through association with his brothers. Brother " Politician " Crum attempted a coup d ' etat but the Commodore Club was not ready to sell out. He also has the happy faculty of being able to play football in a more inebriated con- dition than any other man on the campus. Bro. Tyrce Pain ' s " rollo " almost resulted fatally with him at the Belle Meade Club recently when the Sig Alph cohorts combined against him. Brother Bryan Fairdoth. our second bid for fame on the gridiron, showed the rest of us what a sweet Xmas card to send profs in case you need a passing grade. Wc are second only to one as politicians on the campus. But the unfortunate thing is that we never get anything. We pledged three and one-half men this year and hope the other one-half develops soon. Modesty prevents my saying that we also have an embryonic author in our midst. Intellectually f?) yours.

Dear Commodore: We arc getting along as well as usual, except that the damfool landlord insists that we pay the rent. Our rushing was a great success this year, due to the new system devised by Brother Smokestack Miller. We save time, energy, and money, the latter, of course, being no object. Here is the system: We simply wait till all the other fraternities have pledged, and then we bid the leftovers. Some of these are gullible and fall for Brother Farrow Hamilton ' s crack line about our chapter. We almost believe it our- selves. One of our freshmen almost went an- other frat. that is, he would have taken a bid had he been offered one. So, in regard to pledges we ' re right proud of ourselves. We really have a fine chapter. It bears the special distinction of being two things at once, a fraternity chapter and an alumni club of the Tennessee Industrial School. One of our fresh- men, speaking for the group, made a very cute remark. He said that none of the pledges minded Kangaroo Kourt, since they had all been hardened to it by numerous sessions in the Juvenile Court. That ' s all for now. Drop by the house some time and look us over, (not overlook us) . Love and kisses to Cale and Herk. Regretfully, . l S x-LiS. ( .

Dear Editor: There ' s one big thing we always use in rushing. Whitefoord R. Cole is our alumnus. Of course it doesn ' t matter what he thinks of us now, but it sounds good. Our boy Hughes is frankly the brains of our organization. Since the days of Godfather Quern, we have lacked lea dership, but when Hardy says step, we jump. We ' re willing to, however, for it is due largely to his efforts that we meet the interest payments on the house ever so often. We maintain a small, exclusive chapter. The S.A.E. ' s are welcome to an army sized chapter, but we are unusually particular as to who we take in. Sometimes our freshmen are leftovers, selected from the Great Unwanted, but in every case they have proved to be men who have some knowledge of what it ' s all about. I wish I had the power in my organization that Hardy has. Brother Hughes has twice as much influence as I have. And with the women it ' s the same way. Take Peabody girls. Brother Hardy rushed some sweet young things from the Institute so much that even Bruce Payne knew about it. Many people think we have an inferiority com- plex, but it is not true at all. I ' m confident you ' ll print my letter, Mr. Editor. Hopefully yours. - cJL .58 30 E A NDV- 10 Honorary and ,■: 0 f7A , COmMOVOVE 1 60 qj ' t I? 15 . " v.

EDITOR: When I received your letter asking me to tell you about the Kappa Alpha Thetas I was insulted to think that you didn ' t already know. It is common knowh dge that we are the best on the campus. Perhaps that accounts for the fact that if we aren ' t tall enough to carry ourselves above the madding crowd, we lift our chins and turn up our noses in order not to be forced to speak to just anyone. Our scholarship cup is our pride and joy. We say we received it because of our brains but some say because of our looks. Oh well, anyway, we have it and we intend to keep it until our quills run out. But don ' t think that brains are all we have. You should see the dance bids that come to our house! Yes. it is ni ' v to be popular as well as exclusive. Regarding exclusiveness. I forgot to tell you we only took seven freshmen this year. What did you say? Relatives? Oh yes. Of course we could have gotten more but we thought we ' d like to keep it in the family — you never can tell about these outsiders. I didn ' t tell you about our being asked to sponsor the basketball team. Yes, sometimes we manage to get off from our studies in order to run o er and give the boys a treat. But it is seldom that we miss our trip to the library. We know that our presence is needed to inspire our less fortunate classmates. No doubt you have seen several of our members reprimanded by the 1 librarian for talking. But our policy is to be up-to-date. We like these loud speakers. I ' m sorry I haven ' t any more time to spare, but I ' m already late for my date. Sincerely, MARY CHADWICK. (Samma ' Srta DEAR MR. EDITOR: Was your purpose in asking me for a letter to get a written staten ent of all my troubles? Well, if this must be an Annie Laurie letter I might as well begin. You were probably referring to our scarcity of freshmen when you mentioned " misfortunes. " They ' re small in number, but. as the old saying goes. " Quality, not quantity, is what counts. " You ' ve heard about how good we are nationally, haven ' t you? Why are you smiling? I said " nationally, " didn ' t I ? Oh, well, we ' re the envy of all the girls in school, anyway. We live across from the Dekes. Returning to the subject of misfortunes, we were the first to set the style of burning houses. All of our clothes were saved, although some of them got no further than the walk (.until after dark). But then, behind the clouds there ' s always sunshine. We have hopes of Sis Hopkins becoming Dean of Women at some future date. If the start means anything we know she will. But if this aspiration is realized we fear for the safety of a certain member of the English department. There are others among our numlit-r who do not believe in hiding their light under a bushel. We don ' t know how WLAC could gi ' e programs without the help of two of our members. If you listen in sometime you might recognize a well-known pianist and soprano. I have almost forgotten to ti ll you of our intellectual ability. What ' s the use of considering this when we have such good quills with our professors. Every Saturday there are at least two at our house for lunch. All good things must have an end sometime, so I shall now close. Sincerely, MARY BATES § i9ma Kappa Well. now. Mr. Editor. I am right surprised that you wrote and asked me if we was .mything in the way of national fraternities. Anyone that had any sort of education or had read any of the latest literature would know what we was. Now we know that here at Vanderbilt we are just a bunch of young girls trying hard to get along in the world, but in other places where our girls have been out longer and have traveled a lot (travel is so educational, you know), and seen lots of shows and things, we have some good chapters. Where ? Well. I have it in my diary and I could tell you if you wanted definite facts, but somehow I can ' t remember just now. But even here at Vanderbilt the other girls " frater- nities are going to have to watch out. When girls are ambitious, like we are. and anxious to make their mark in the world, the others had better stop feeliig so self-satisfied and get to work. Vov brains is what counts. I say. Now look at us when it comes to music. We believe that one way for girls to get along is to cultivate the arts. And you can ask our neighbors if we aren ' t faithful when it comes to playing the piano. We believe in keeping our talents before the public. Surely. Mr. Editor, you know what one of our members is doing in the way of medicine. Not another fraternity can tell about one of their sisters studying to be an M.D. But this is just one of the many things our girls can do. And I ' m not even going to mention that some of us do not think b-a-s are enough but want to be m-a-s. We admit all this. Mr. Editor, but with all our honors and things we are modest and do not believe in making our- selves conspicuous. We do not like to be proud and say we are the best socially end intel- lectually or athletically, but we strive after the Golden Mean and, if you are really educated, you will know what that is. Well, Mr. Editor, if I ' m going to get along in this world I must close. EVELYN CALVERT. 3or " VA XTif 30 -;r ' uji on ? OAe COMMOIjO ' RB F Sflta Sflta Srlta DEAR MR. EDITOR: I ' m di ' lightfd tu ti ll you what 1 know iil i ut Tri I i lta. Vuu see. tliat is all I think of and talk about, anyway. We consider ourselves the most democratic fraternity on tht- campus. Our freshmen roll is nmdo up of a list of seventeen names — or is it twenty-seven? We did hate to break the poor children ' s hearts — and then, you know, we have a new house, too. Our grades are excellent. The Alpha Omieron Pis may have the history department sewed up, but you should see how we rate in Chemistry. What we are most proud of is our histrionic ability. The Dramatic Club embraced several of our members this year. And then there is our basketball team. If we are champions this season the cup is ours. There is really no use in worrying for we certainly do shine in athletics. We have even thought of encouraging a co-ed football team for we have several members eligible for fullback. La. t year we had open house for the fire department, but this year we ' ve thought it best to on- centrate on the police department. Isn ' t it a shame that the Chi Phis moved as soon as we bought our house? We are still within walking distance, however, and that is very con- venient. Dear me, there are several of those bnvs at the door now, or is it another burglar? Sincerely, FANNIE NEin. Alpl|a ©mirron Pi DEAR EDITOR: Did you ask me are we well known ? Well, I guess we are, in some places, anyway. We have two members who represent us at every social function. West Tennessee? Yes, I believe they do live there. And then there is one of our sisters who will soon take her place by Mrs. OwsTey in the history department. We also have another member who may some day rival Marion Talley. You didn ' t know we were so famous, did you? Oh, yes, we are even if someone did think that our house was the A. O. Biscuit Company. Speaking of our house, the best thing about it is the location. It is impossible to go to school without passing the Sigma Alpha Ep.silon house and the Dekes house or the Lambda Chi house. Did you hear about our recent gift? Mr. Wrigley presented us with a thousand packages of chewing gum and we ' ve been busy since then trying to use it up. Oh, well, we ' re sweet girls, anyway, and some of these days you ' ll be proud that you knew us. ESTHER HILL. Alplia iEpHiluit piji DEAR MR.

Vhy we even haf president uf Phi Beta Kappa. No. indeed, dal ' s not all. Ve are just about de cutest little goils on de campus, Ve set de styles and de other goils follow along after.

Dear me, here I am in de library trying to study and I just can ' t do it. How can dose Zeta Beta Taus expect me to keep my mind on lessons when they are around. I told you before I didn ' t haf much time for nonsense. Dear, dear, dey say dey not speak to me again unless I leaf now, so I guess I better do it.

" Nor does it exist to provide .activities for stu- dents, nor just to do things for students. It seelvs to gather up, guide and drive onward, as a movement, all those forces in the campus community which contribute the highest Christian y (jualities to personality. i Starting with the assumption that the very essence of the religion of Jesus is a spirit of helpfulness, or helpful good-will, the ' anderiiilt Young Men ' s Christian Association attempts to do three things, namely; (i) To help students achieve a better understanding of Christ and to supply them with O inspiration toward the living of His Way of Life. As a means toward the accomplishment of the foregoing, these projects are undertaken: Meetings, forums, personal interviews, special ) speakers, conferences, week-end camps, distribution of pamphlets and books. l (2) To meet definite needs of students in practical ways, the Association carries on such y enterprises as: An employment bureau, Freshman Handbook, Student Directory, Dormitory p Reading Room, Freshman reception. U (3) In order to provide channels in which large numbers of students may find their larger selves through the expression of helpfulness at points of real need in the community, such enter- prises as supplving leaders to Boys ' Club Work, Deputations, and Gospel Team Work are carried on.

Trice, J. T. Davis, Bob Porter and Dick Abernathy. Theirs is a hard position, yet they fill it ad- mirably. This committee is composed of rep- resentatives elected from each class of Aca- demic and Engineering departments. All cases of violation of the honor system are brought to them and it is their duty to enforce rigidly the rules set down by the voting of the mem- bers. Reber Boult, chairman, acted wisely and filled his post with credit. C. M. Sarratt, Dean of Men, always gave a helping hand and his counsel is of invaluable help to the committee. The Honor Council is the result of the Student Body voting en masse at the beginning of the first term. Without the Honor System in our University there would be the feeling of always be ing watched. A man should have enough pride when he goes to college to wish to take his examinations without having an eagle eye looking at him all the time. The stu- dents take a greater interest in the studies of the University as a result of the Honor Sys- tem. They have the idea that to learn one must grasp and take in — they are far from the notion of seeking only as a means of taking something unfair. They wish to retain what they gather in the field of knowledge and they desire to reap only from what they have sown. It is unquestionable that the University would be handicapped without the Honor Council. It is well to bear in mind that the Honor System has only proven successful in South- ern Colleges. May it continue to enforce its rules and show the other sections of the col- lege world that it not only does away with the undesirables but it gives the students a feeling of self esteem and confidence. May the Student Body continue to uphold the tra- ditions of the honor System in Vanderbilt. Dean C M Surratt 2lS 3or ' Y NDV 10 ? ,rr l £7 CDMMOtiPRE Jp .x: - , o --i standing — (_ ' . Brooks. E.

Debating Teams, 1926-27 The debating season of 1925-26 proved most successful. Intercollegiate debates were held with Washington University. University of Cincinnati, University of Mississippi, University of Kentucky and University of the South. The team sent to St. Louis, defending the negative of " Resolved, That the Volstead Act should be so modified as to permit the sale of light wines and beers, " was composed of G. H. White and Ben J. Shamblum. The verdict was lost to Washington. The affirmative of the same question was advocated by J. W. Norris and Herschel C. Finger, who met the University of Cincinnati at Vanderbilt and won the decision. Marion M. Tillman and Edwin Crouch, supporting the negative of " Resolved, That the aeronautics for national defense should be separate from the Army and Navy, " met the Uni- versity of Kentucky at Nashville, winning the decision. Hubert T. Holman and G. H. Golden pleaded the negative of the same question against the University of Mississippi, losing the verdict. Horace E. Holman represented Vanderbilt in the Oxford plan debate with Sewanee, advocat- ing the affirmative of the aeronautic question. The Southern and Tennessee oratorical contests were won by M. M. Tillman, who spoke on " Intolerance and Reaction. " David G. Caldwell was awarded the Founder ' s medal in oratory, the title of his oration being " The Supreme Court. " With the advent of the season of 1926-27, plans were carried forward to improve and enlarge ' anderbilt ' s program of forensics. In addition to a dual debate with Cinci ' iinati and the regular engagements with the University of Tennessee, Sewanee and Kentucky, between thirty and forty extension debates were scheduled with the University of Tennessee, Sewanee, Kentucky, Union, Southwestern and Emory; the tours embracing the principal towns of Ten- nessee, Kentucky and Cieorgia. These debates have been invaluable in training men in the art of impromptu speaking, as well as stimulating interest in forensics and public problems. At a recent convention of the Tau Kappa Alpha Debating Fraternity, Vanderbilt was especially recognized for her success in this field of debating, and the breadth of her program adjudged second to that of only one other school in the country. The teams for 1926-27 were: Hubert T. Holman and Joe V. Williams, affirmative, and E. C. Cochran and Edwin Crouch, negative, meeting the University of Cincinnati on " Resolved, That the Eighteenth Amendment should be repealed " ; David G. Caldwell and Horace E. Holman, negative, debating with Sewanee for a " return to the Convention System of nominating party candidates " ; and Cleanth Brooks and W. A. Cox, affirmative, debating with Tennessee " The adoption of a five-day labor week. " 219 OE ynNxyyr 3 or ' m±;juOL£7Ae commotjOTJB a O W. Top Row — Burns. Vaufrl-n, Sandusky, Imi .

Who would ha e marshaled the cheering section in array year after year, had it not been for the stront; lungs of " Freshman " Cross?

He has held an office in every class in which he has been a member during the eleven years of hi stay in the I ' niversity. " Freshman " is a member ot the Kappa Sigma fraternity, Nemo Club, Commodore Club, and the Witherspoon Club of the Medical School. For years he has contributed greatly to the success of the Vanderbilt Glee Club, of which he was president this year. In vears to come, teams coming on the field will miss the supporting cheers of dear old " Freshman " Cross. The degree of Bachelor of Ugliness, devised by Professor William H.

Scene II shoivs the students enroute to the chapel, ivinding about the picturesque campus in a meandering line. Note the orderly manner in which the students walk. This is the direct result of the Tandy traffic code worked out by the Student Council. Inciden- tally, Tanderbilt is the only university in the South which requires the students to wear full dress to chapel. The funny looking fellow in Scene II is Red Ti ' .hnan, the Greenfield politician. These little snapshots show the Wesley Hall theological students rallying early in the morning to do obeisance to Commodore Tanderbilt, pa- tron saint of the Vnii ' ersily. Scene A shows the students aivaiting the six o ' clock bell in order that they may do their daily dozen in the di- vinity line. The Commodore, as photoed, is troubled with abdominal pangs, causing him to clasp the stomach with the right hand. He has just emerged from a coat of white paint and will soon have another. Scene B shows the students in the midst of the rites, with High Priest Kirkland presiding.

In Presenting This — The 1927 CoMAroDORE, to you, we wish to thank the Class of 1927 for the honor of editing and managing its yearbook. We have ever been conscious of the responsibility that the Senior Class has entrusted to us. We have worked hard and served the class and school to the limit of our strength and resources. Our work is done — the last copy sheet has been marked and numbered and is ready to go to the printer. Only this one remains. As we stop for reflection we find mis- takes that we have made and things have been left out which we have not had space to include in this volume. We began our work with ideals and aspirations, but the hard knocks of business and editorial worries have shattered most of them. What the Commodore might have been if only we could have kept them, only our dreams can tell ; what it is, is for your judgment. In these lines the staff wishes to extend its appreciation to those students who have not been connected with the staff, but who have given their time, thoughts, and energ ' for the success of the book. Our work is done. May you read the Commodore with as much happiness as we have found in its creation. Mav it mean to you — ' anderbilt. Seo Appendix.

Only recently he was placed by Hugh Fullerton on his All-American team of coaches. He is the grand old man of Southern coaches and there are only a few over the country who have coached longer or with more remarkable results. There need be no more than this said of him, that any one of his " boys " would give his right arm for him. An excellent, up-to-the-minute coach, full of good humor, witty, character builder and an inspired leader is Coach Dan. O I 238 30 r V NDY 30 fe L-i O o n o " PL Ofvc COMMOTjOT m QT. Cody, Weible, MoGugln. and Wakefield holding a conference. The Coaches The coaching staff of Vaiiderbilt is exceptionally strong; headed by that lovable, inspiring, smart, tactful and highly respected Dan McGugin, and ably assisted by Josh Cody, Lewie Hardage and Hek Wakefield. Josh Cody Josh leaves us this year to go to Clemson. He has been a faithful, hard-working, loyal aid to Coach McGugin, and has been chiefly responsible for the noted condition of ' anderbilt teams for the past several years. He goes with the best wishes of Vanderbilt to his new field and we feel that Clemson is getting a mighty fine coach and will come to be recognized as a power in Southern football. He is also coach of basketball and baseball. Lewie Hard. ' VGe He has Benefited many Commodore backs since casting his lot with the Vanderbilt coaching staff. He is an excellent backfield coach in that he is able to impart to his men the secrets of elusiveness, shiftiness and stiff-arming ability that were his when he was in his prime as an All-Southern back. He is also the official scout of the team, in which capacity he rates along with Russ Cohen as probably the two best scouts in these parts. Vanderbilt will need him next year. Hek Wakefield This year ' s freshman coach gave Vanderbilt her first undefeated freshman team. Hek is just about as good a coach as he was a player and that is saying something. He implanted in the freshmen this year the qualities that made him capable of making Ail-American end, namely: Work, work, work, with some various thought added to what natural ability he possessed. He will continue to work up good men from the freshman squad as long as he is coach. 239 " V NDy 3 or o SM ;TMm £7Ae COIAMOUyRR A Football IN reviewing the season of the Commodores, there is one fact that stands ' .y out above all the rest and that is, the remarkable spirit of right, and M r ' the ability to come back after having lost the first major game of the S season, when they lost to Alabama in a heart-breaking, hard-fought battle. The following Saturday was a rest day game with Bryson, and there was not much chance to gauge the come-back ability of the team, but the following Satur- day, this gallant team removed all doubt and worry as to whether they would let the loss to Alabama ruin their season, when they defeated the Longhorns of Texas University in Dallas in a stubbornly-fought battle, and from then on the season devel- oped into a highly successful season, consisting of a continuous string of victories. The following Saturday, Georgia fell under the feet of the mighty Commodores only after having put up a fight worthy of any noble foe. This game was the most thrilling game seen on Dudley Field in several years. Vanderbilt won in the latter part of the game by the score of 14-13, after most of the spectators had practically conceded the game to Georgia. It was another demonstrable incident of the never-say-die spirit that characterized the play of the team the entire year. Then came a rest game with S. P. U. and on the following Saturday the team met Georgia Tech on Grant Field and in another heart-rending, spectacular, glorious game, defeated the Jackets 13 to 7, again coming from behind after Tech had scored on the eighth play of the game. The Atlanta papers stated after the game that Tech was more completely beaten in this game than at any time in recent years on Grant Field by a conference team. Then came Tennessee boasting of " her best team in history, " and boasting of an unscarred season ' s record and already planning a post-season game with Alabama for the S. I. C. championship. They came heroes, but left a badly defeated team, losing 20-3. They really had a powerful team, but were just as inferior to Vanderbilt as the score would indicate. Thanksgiving Day the Purple Tiger from Sewanee came down and in a listless game which only occasionally was characterized by any brilliant playing, were defeated 1 3 to o. Vanderbilt, owing to her excellent record, was voted second choice for the S. I. C. championship, and throughout the South there were many at the close of the season who believed that Vanderbilt could have beaten Alabama, and I am one of those. It was a great year, anyway. 240 30E -Y Nuy " t) 30 oz O Dke COMMOTJOT REVIEW OF THE SEASON B George Waller, S ynrls EJilor " . i)i:rhii.t, (19; MiDOi-K Tirxxirssi-.E Teachers, o. The first game of the year offered no more than an opportunity for Vanderliilt to practically use every man on the stjuad from time to time throughout the game. The Teachers put up a game figlit, but were simply outclassed in all deparlments of the game. Vanderhilt, of course, was ragged at times, was in fact, most of the game, but they showed to their supporters that they could look for a winning team. V.AXDERRILT, J; Al.AH.AM.A, IQ Alabama came to Nashville, already the proud possessor of two Southern titles, and they felt that if they could win this game, they were off to another, so they came prepared, came with a brilliant array of rooters, and came with a well- organized, determined and fully-conditioned team. Against them stood the Commodores, who had done their best to round into form, and to round into condition, but they had started too late to cope with such a team. The stadium was practically filled, there was a spirit of uncon- trollable energ among supporters, and the weather was stifling; entirely too hot for football, still there thev were, both teams ready for the kickoff. From the kickoff till the final whistle there were thrills galore, and countless were the near attacks of heart failure among the rooters of the two teams. On the second play a long for- ward pass from Spears to Armistead put the ball on the five-yard line, where he stumbled and fell. It was a terrible break. Alabama held, then punted, and Vandy fumbled and then Ala- bama scored without losing the ball. They scored again with a brilliant running-passing attack. The half ended 13 to o. There was no scoring in the third quarter, but in the last quarter ' anderbilt, by a brilliant passing attack carried the ball to the three-yard line, where they bucked it over and kicked goal. The Vanderhilt stands were wild and were cry- ing for another touchdown, but . ' Mabama came back with another touchdown and the game was theirs, 19 to 7. It was simply a case of a No- vember team beating an early October team of individuals, and, oh my, what a game this would have been late in November. Alabama showed the best blocking team that has been seen in Nashville in many a year. They had a great team and their condition was perfect. V.ANDERIiILT, 48; HrVSON, O. Here began Vanderbilt ' s comeback. Bryson put up a surprising defense. The Commodores didn ' t score until the second quarter, when the regulars began going into the game. The half ended with the score 20 to o. This half was marred by frequent fumbling by both teams. In the second half, Vanderhilt looked more like a team and in the final (juarter began scoring with ease. The team showed improvement as a whole over the team that played Alabama. Bryson should be commended for the stubborn, defensive game they uncorked. Their offense was notice- able by its absence. Our line work was rather ragged in this game. Vanderbilt, 7 ; Texas, o. Here again the weather was mighty hot and there was a hot, clammy atmosphere that was almost oppressing in manner. The field was stickv from constant rain beforehand and it was alto- gether an unsuitable day for football. Vander- hilt is strong in Texas and there were many old grads there, who teamed in with the special trainload of " Butch " Stewart ' s loyal supporters and the band, to show them all what real Van- derhilt spirit was. The crowd offset the weath- er and it was a frenzied mob by the time the first half was over. V anderbilt was in Texas territory but were unable to score, losing the ball on their best chance on a fumble. Early in the third quarter after a wild rampage over the line aided by one 30-yard run, soon carried the ball ever and kicked goal for the only score of the game. The Vanderhilt supporters were wild and they knew that Texas was theirs. Texas resorted to a futile passing attack in the last quarter, but were never very dangerous. Vandy in this game showed that she was well on her way to a good year. They were a much improved team over last Saturday ' s team and 1 - 11 tfK M ■■■ JL m - y ■a Y NDY 301: . ' m cs m Dke commotjO-re m o tliey prnbalily would have won liv a more de- cided score if the Texas jumho hadn ' t stuck so cUisely to their cleats. The Vanderhilt alumni secured the Dallas Athletic Club for headquarters and that night the whole ' anderbi!t crowd attended a ban(|uet held there to celebrate Vanderbilt ' s well-earned victory. It was a great gathering of Vanderhilt souls. The best thing in Texas is that group of loyal old grads. Vanderbilt, 14; Georgia, 13 Vanderhilt was glorious today in the undying fight she put up against overwhelming odds at times during the game, and Georgia was glorious in her defeat. Here was a game which would have thrilled the coldest of all stone men, would have made the strongest of men cry, and would have made the drunk man sober, for all through it there was drama, pathos, excitement and ex- hilaration. Georgia was outgained through the air and on running plays, still they were leading 13-7 with only a few minutes to play, and they had crowded down that valiant line of theirs once before on the four-yard line and there held like an unbreakable thing, and here they were the winners, until Captain Cargile, with a superhuman effort, blocked a punt. Vandy re- covered and marched to a touchdown with only a few ticks of the watch left until the game was over, and then over the stadium there came a stillness, not a soul even breathing, until the goal was kicked and Vandy was leading 14. to 13. Then bedlam broke loose, and there were tears of jov shed, and women were hysterical, but Vanderbilt had won and had won from a power- ful, never-say-die team that was glorious in de- feat. Two more like this one and I ' ll be ready to die. Vanderbilt, 50; S. P. U., o Next came what was supposed to have been a let-up game with Jesse Neely ' s team from Mem- phis, but if one had seen onh ' the first half, he would have thought that it was a game played between two teams, neither of which was the favorite. Southwestern was strong on offense and defense and Vanderbilt seemed rather ragged in her play. We were lucky not to have been scored on. The second half was an entirely dif- ferent story, for Vanderbilt began to hit her stride and S. P. U. seemed to lose strength as the game wore on. V ' andy finally overwhelmed them towards the latter part of the game. Old Captain Jesse brought up a well-coached team, with some mighty good football players on it. Vandy seemed to have suffered a let down after the Texas and Georgia games. Vanderbilt, 13; Georgia Tech, 7 On to Atlanta moved the traveling troupe of the Commodores: Team, band, students, debu- tantes, business men, butchers and all. Tech was confident of winning before the game and there was considerable concern among the rooters. Still, there was good old Dan with his boys and talking wouldn ' t hurt them. There was a great crowd in Grant Stadium and a colorful crowd it was, and no small part of that crowd was Vanderbilt through and through. The game started and on the eighth pla ' of the game Red Barron, after a 67-yard sprint around his left end, scored a touchdown. It was a dazzling exhibition of speed, side-stepping and stiff-arming. The goal was kicked and the Vandy supporters were drinking heavily of the dregs of despair. From this point on the game was all Vanderbilt ' s, even though it seemed an ' m 43 or ' Y NDy i: 1.0X. o o OKOL COMMOTjO-RE K ' S ' eternttv before the " would co e. By means of a forward pass and bucking for the last six yards, the ball was over by inches and goal was kicked. The score stood 7 to 7. In the last half Vandy kicked two field goals to add to their total. Tech resorted to a futile passing attack, but in the entire game only made two first downs, one on Barron ' s run and one on a forward pass. Vanderbilt made 10 first downs and outgained Tech about 3 yards to i. It was a spectacular, thrilling game with lots of beautiful playing by both sides. ' andy won and deserved to win, and the Tech supporters were mighty good losers. The whole state of Georgia seems to have as their chief cbjcct to scare Vanderbilt. They did that in both games and you will have to wait for manv a season to see one team play two such games in a row as did the Commodores against Georgia and Georgia Tech. V.AN ' DERIULT, 20; TeXXESSEE, 3 U. T., the whole of it, came to Nashville to see the " best team they ever had whip ' ander- bilt. " They came with a perfect season ' s record and were already planning a post-season game vith Alabama to settle the S. I. C. champion- ship, but they reckoned without considering ' an- derbilt. They should have known better than that. They said " If we don ' t win this year we never will, " and were willing to bet, under cer- tain circumstances, that they would a. The best crowd of the season was on hand and the stadium was practically filled. Tennessee looked the team that their supporters had claimed for them, and they did look formid- able, and later on they proved that they did have a powerful, well-developed team, and were only beaten by a better team. Thev scored first by a field goal and the V . T. students nearly tore the stadium down, hut their joy was short-liveil, for Vanderbilt was net to be denied. The Commodores scored one, two, three touchdowns only after having torn down stubborn resistance, especially in the V. T. line, where the gallant Barnhill, who later made All-Southern guard, fought as I have seen few men fight, even after he was sick. With all this, though, they couldn ' t stop the cut back plays launched at them and again V . T. goes back to KnoxviUe, waiting, waiting for another chance at Vanderbilt. Their team was a good team and I believe the most powerful of any the Commodores met this year, still they were up against the ' anderbilt team that is always strong in November, and they were exceptionally strong this year. It was a great game. V. xDERniLT, 13; Sewaxee, O This game, always a colorful one, on account of the keen rivalry which exists between the two schools, was rather slow this year, due to some extent to the slippery field. There was a color- ful crowd present and there was some dash and color in parts of the game. Sewanee had held Alabama to a 2 to o score after ' anderbilt had lost to her 19 to 7, and they were expecting to give us just such a game. Vanderbilt clearly outplayed Sewanee and more than likely would have won by an even larger score had the field been dry. The game was ragged as a whole and not very interesting. There were several instances of dazzling individual efforts through- out the game, but there was no such sustained qualitv in the play. The game marked the passing of several Sewanee stars and the last game of 7 of our Commodores. That ' s a mighty good way to end their careers, with a win over the Purple Tiger of Sewanee. 244 zor ■ " YfrnVTif o o 1.0 mhf:z OAe C0MM0O3TO F o or NDY i OK DL COMMOTjOT K§ ' Neil Cargile, Captain Neil has hecn one of the most inspiring leaders of recent Commodore teams, and this year com- pleted a brilliant career as a Commodore. He has played a hard-smashing, colorful game all season, being without doubt the best defensive back in all the southland. Was in practically every play on the defense, tackling like a man possessed, giving all he had all the time. Neil carried the ball only once or twice during the entire season, yet his offensive ability could not be overestimated for he made it much easier for the other backs carrying the ball by his wonder- ful exhibitions of blocking. It will be mighty hard to ever fill his shoes. AxDV Holmes. Manager Andv made one of the best student football managers that Vandy has had in a good while. Pleasant, accommodating, hard-working, popular t •sri5« W(i " «5«i ' and efficient was Andy. A mighty fine manager of a mighty fine te am. He was ably assisted by Mutt Ward and Johnnie Johnson, both of whom did good work, and by several others trying out for assistant manager. Vernon Sharp, Center, Captain-Elect A good, steady, thoroughly capable center of All-Southern caliber. Vernon played the entire year without having had any opponent outplay him. He was constantly intercepting short passes over the center of the line, was a won- derful snapper back, and a mighty good all around lineman. Always a fighter, always en- couraging to his other linemen, he is an ex- cellent choice for captain of the 1927 team. Lacking only one vote of making the composite All-Southern this year he is almost a certain bet for it next year. Make them play like you do, Vernon, and we will continue to have a winner. £-■ ' :W 9f m4 ' i! T x AXWi 246 30 r " v qNDy . o n 30 02 DAe COMMOTjOTOB P o o on i?%SS£Se»-, Nig Waller, H« , Quarter Nig is another who has passed on into the group of old timers, as he finished his career this year, after having made 3 letters. He was the fastest back on the squad, was a good pass- er, pass receiver and was a deceptive running bacl , always dangerous against any team. Played most of the year with an injured shoulder, but wa-i always good. Nig never was given any kind of the chance he deserved this year, for if he had been, he would have gained ground with the best of them. Went down on punts in several games and was always there to tackle the man receiving the punt. He also played at end and defensive half. Mighty good work. Nig. ' an- derbilt will miss you Peck Ownx, Quarter and Half Peck has played two years and will be hack next year to carry on the good work he has done these two years. He was a more finished player this year. Was a good defensive man, a good pass receiver and made several nice gains this year. He alse can pass and is full of fight. Peck has been used at both half and quarter and has covered punts from an end po- sition. Had his shoulder dislocated in the latter part of the season and didn ' t get to play against Sewanee. He will be a very valuable cog in the machinery composing next year ' s backfield. Bill Hendrix, Fullback Hendrix also departs from the Coinmodore machine, and in his passing there goes one of the best fullbacks of recent Southern football teams. He developed in the last 2 games of last year a very powerful drive which he im- proved to an even higher quality this season, and in addition, developed a shiftiness once he was past the line of scrimmage, that would make many a much lighter halfback proud to own. He was used at end and halfback on the de- fense, and was a much improved player in this respect over last year. Big, powerful and shifty, a good pass receiver and a good blocker. Hate to lose you. Bill. On several All-Southern teams. Bo Brown, Guard Brown is another of last year ' s freshman team who more than came up to last year ' s prediction. Although this was his first varsity year, he was picked by Grantland Rice on his All-Southern selection. He has all the qualities that a star lineman should have, and he uses them all to the fullest. Here was a certain choice for 1927 ' s best guard in the south, but he has left school. Vanderbilt is hoping strongly and counting on him to return to school and play again in 192S, for there have been mighty few such men produced lately in their first year of varsitv football. 2+7 " YANxyy ion o o DKOAe COMMO130R K Paul McGalghey, JJall Paul, a graduate from last year ' s freshman team, was a regular back before the season closed. Being of a squatty build, he was a hard man to stop once he was started. He was essen- tially a charging back, but was elusive once he was in the open, and gained considerable ground when he was called on to advance the ball. Paul has that old fighting spirit — that spirit of a fullback, once developed. Bill Spears, Quarter Bill ' s second year on the team bore out all the last year ' s prediction that he would be a wonderful running back this year. In fact, he was the greatest running back in the whole South, and was practically unstoppable. He be- gan the year at quarter, and did the passing, punting and his share of the running. He did nearly all the punting until the latter two-thirds the season, but Bill still was a triple threat man, for he was very dangerous within the 40-yard line for kicking drop kicks. Tech can testify to that. His passing alone would have given him a place on most teams and add to this his deceptive, elusive, fearless style of running and his kicking ability, can you wonder why he was unanimously selected All-Southern quarter? Neither can I. Will be back for one more year. Hard luck, opponents. Jones, End and Half Cowboy, after coming to Vanderbilt from New Mexico and staying in school a year, came out in earnest this year and proved to be a most val- uable man both as an end and as a halfback. He was a hard blocker and tackier, and ver ' adept on handling passes. Kept up his work as a freshman medical student, and still played football. He had to like the game to do that. Played a beautiful game against Tech. Will lose him by a conference ruling. Hate to lose you, Cowboy. Bryan Faircloth, Guard Bulldog ' s second year on the squad found him a much improved player over last year and a hard man to keep out of anybody ' s starting line- up. He was undoubtedly one of the hardest working linemen in the entire squad, and has shown steady, plugging improvement all during this year. Will be back next year, and his presence will prevent the coaches from having any more grey hairs appear in their temples from worrying about who is going to play at least one guard position next year. He can also play a good game at center. 248 30 r " YAnxy o 10 o OE " Vh €7Ae COMMOIjO ' RB F m - Larry Creson, End Here is a man who was late in being given a chance to demonstrate his real ability, but when he was given that chance, proved to be one of the two best ends this writer saw in action last year. The team ' s strength offensively and defensively was improved 15 to 20 per cent when Kitty was put in as the regular punter, as he averaged between +0 and 50 yards on his punts and was a demon on the defense, tackling time and time again behind the line of scrim- mage around his own end and around the oppo- site end also. Received many All-Southern votes this year and will put up a stronger bid next vear. Jim Sharpe, Fullback Jim, playing his first year after coming up from the freshman team, proved to be a very efficient, hard-driving back. He alternated with Hendrix at fullback in most of the games, and was perhaps the most powerful charging back on the Commodore squad. In the first few games he had a tendency to keep his head ducked after passing the line of scrimmage, thus running blindly. As the season wore on he overcame this fault and his powerful thrusts at the line have made the coaches predict a wonderful sea- son for him his next year. Sharpe more than likely will back up the line in 1927 and we know he will back it up as it should be backed up. Glad you are with us again, Jim. A real good fullback. Bob Ledyard, Tackle, Guard Bob is another who shall not be back next year. He made his third letter this year and has during his career played a consistently good game. Has been called on time and again to fill some gap in that old line and he ' s always done it well. He has helped the morale of the team and he will be sorely missed next year. JiMMiE Armistead, End, Half Armistead ' s first year on the team proved that he can and will play football as it should be played. He was another of the several ends we had this year and he played at half also at times. Ht gives promise of developing into a very shifty back for next year. He is capable of playing great football before he leaves and will be in the starting line-up in 1927. Was handi- capped through the early part of the season with a badly sprained ankle sustained before the sea- son opened, but played good football even with it hurt. 249 " Y NDy : 301: wai TM l fi " . CO V MOTjOTJB A " o Z.ACK Coles, End Zack ' s third and last year on the team. Was first given his chance three years ago in the Georgia game, where his brilliant defensive work in the last half will always be remembered by those who saw it. Since that game Zack has put out an excellent exhibition of defensive end, and has also played a guard position. His game against Minnesota two years ago in that posi- tion will live long in the memories of those pres- ent. As ' andy had several good fast ends this year Zack didn ' t play as much as last year, but gave a good account of himself when he did play, for he has always been a mighty hard man to get out of a play on the defense. An easy man to play defensive half behind. Good work, Zack. Vaughx Bl.AKE, End Blake, playing his first year of varsity foot- ball, proved to be a valuable end. His speed, already a possession that has ranked him as one of Vanderbilt ' s greatest track men, made him a good prospect at the beginning of the year for an end position. He was a trieless worker and developed in leaps and bounds. Is mighty good material for next year ' s team and is a prospect fir a fast-stepping, shifty halfback. Red Saunders, Quarter and Half Red was perhaps as small as any letter man in the S. I. C. This was his third year on the team and he too, has finished his football career. Red has been a game, hard-fighting back, and only his lack of weight kept him from playing more. He knows football, is very good in his selection of play, is a deceptive ball carrier and is good in the passing game, both as a passer and as a receiver of passes. He has given his all and that ' s been a great deal. Good work, Red. Jesse Keexe, Guard Another good man who completed his grid career in the game with Sewanee on Thanks- giving. Handicapped throughout the season by an old shoulder injury, Jesse put up a good brand of football. He was a big, powerful lineman who never fully realized his ability, but made it hard for many an opponent. Jesse could play guard, tackle or center effectively and for three vears has been a bulwark in Commodore lines. 250 30 r " VAis xyy 30 o o Hugh Cecil, Guard Prnbably the hardest man on the team. I n- hiirtahle, hard, consistent, hard-working and de- pendable are all qualities possessed by this line- man. There were more than one of an oppos- ing players on the ground groaning and moan- ing (if they were that well off), from the savage blocking and tackling of this Beau Brummel. A good man for the past two years and a better one next year. Lehm.an Luskv, Tackle Although this was Piute ' s first year on the team he took his place from the beginning of the year as a regular tackle, and there he remained, putting up a consistently good game, both on offense and defense. He has been a faithful, tireless worker and has more than held his own throughout the season. He has proven that he will be a bulwark of strength in next year ' s line. We are all for you, Lehman. Fred McKibbon, Tackle The largest of the Commodores and a ranking tackle in southern football for the past 2 years. Ox also leaves this year. He has been a marked man all year and has had no less than 2 men put against him by each of Vandy ' s opponents this year. This alone speaks for his ability and the respect other southern teams had for him. Named by many for All-Southern. Was very good at kicking off, opening holes in opponents ' lines, severely jolting rebel backs on the defense, and a deadly open field tackier. His place will only be filled by an exceptional tackle. George Waller, of Bessemer. Alabama, proved to be the most versatile athlete In Vanderbilt during the year 1925-1926, and as a result he received the Porter cup for athletic- prowess. George was a three-letter man. receiving the coveted " " in football, baseball, and track. He played uuarterljack on the football team, ran the team with excellent judgment, and was as gritty as they came. His defensive work was one of the features of the season. On the baseball team George hurled the horsehide in fine fashion, and he was one of Coach Cody ' s most dependable moundsmen. Coach Bill Anderson used George as a pole vaulter. and he was the best in the South in this event, winning at the S. I. C. nieet and establishing a new -Southern competitive record. In addition he played a nifty forward in the frat league, being high-point man for the Sigma Nu ' s. In his spare moments he finds time to pass his medical work, take a prominent part in all the campus activities, and to rate high with the faculty and higher with his fellow students. 251 or " Y NDV zor no o o ' °o DWAe COMMOIDR KQ ' Freshman T Here is Vanderbilt ' s first undefeated Fresh- man team and a mighty fine looking hunch it is. Under the able coaching of Hel Wake- field the Freshmen very soon learned that foot- ball was a serious business and they applied the lesson in all their work for the entire season. They did more work on blocking and tackling the dummy and each other than did the varsity, and they put in afternoon after afternoon scrim- maging their big brothers on the varsity, and always gave a very creditable exhibition. As a whole, they were an eager, willing, conscien- tious bunch, and the hard work they went through with this year will assure the varsity- coaches next year that they have a bunch of hard-blocking, hard-tackling, rough, but clean- playing men who are ready and anxious to play for Vanderbilt ' s varsity as they have so well played for her this year as freshmen. earn I ' hey have not been defeated and among their most notable conquests have been the defeat of Birmingham-Southern freshmen, Kentucky State freshmen, who were press-agented as having a[i unbeatable team; University of Tennessee fresh- men and the freshman team from Sewanee. They were specially strong on the defensive, had a good punter in Gibson, a good passer in Mc- Elwain and a deceptive, dangerous back in Rye. In Abernathy, they probably had the best pros- pect for a tackle or end that has come here in many a day. And on down the list of the 15 men who were awarded numerals, there are names who will later become associated with varsity victories and traditions. Some of the more prominent of whom are the ones mentioned above and Warner, Blalock, Baker, Franklin, Dunn, Lewis. 252 hoi; " V NDY o zo m€7Ae COMMOljO-RE 1 on S. I. C. Champions The championship of the Southern Conference basketball world came to Vander- bilt when the Commodores, on the night of Tuesday, March 2, in Atlanta, took all the Georgia Bulldogs had to offer, shook it off and plunged from the blackness of impending defeat to the championship by the score of 46 to 44 in a nerve-wrecking, pulse-shattering battle. Jim Stuart, All-Southern center, was all over the floor, scoring 19 points to head the list of scores and to be the high point scorer of the entire tournament. John McCall, All-Southern guard, continued his great play in the hole position, taking practically all the opposing shots off the back board, and started nearly all of the Commodores ' advances down the floor. Captain Malcolm Moss proved again that he had no superior as a floor man, and he made the 3 deciding points of the game. Frank Bridges and Dave Baker, the two forwards, were not excelled by any for- wards in the tournament. They were well up among the high scorers and in defensive work and floor play were both stars. Vanderbilt was easily the best team that appeared in the tournament, and they never did reach the pace they set in their pre-tournanient games until the last half of the Georgia game, when they started 8 points behind and came back in the glorious victory. 254 3or " Y NDY - o o zo - ' (_i M Dke COMMOTjOT P OE This is probably the greatest basketball team that Vanderbilt ever had and it is only proper that they should be champions of the S. I. C. To reach the finals, Vanderbilt brushed aside Washington and Lee by a 44 to 32 count, finishing the game under wraps. Ole Miss was the next to fall and the Com- modores played that game with a nonchalance that was quite evident and yet won, 32-20. The South Carolina Gamecocks were met in the semi-finals and the Cody five had no great trouble in winning by a 31 to 25 score, and then the Georgia game and the championship. Coach Cody, with only a few weeks ' practice for his men, took them on their annual Christmas trip into Indiana, Illinois and Missouri, where they won 2 games and lost 2. Losing to Evansville College and Loyola (Chicago) and winning from Marquette and University of St. Louis. Beginning with the game on January 8 with Western Kentucky State Normal, which Vanderbilt won, 40 to 20, there has been no let up in the schedule, and the Commodores developed rapidly into the outstanding team of the South. Josh Cody presented a fast, good-shooting, fighting, and well-passing team that is exceptionally good on the defense. Baker, forward, has improved by leaps and bounds, and is death 255 ' V NDY i: 3 or 30 CSm OAe COMMOljOrar 1 on crip shops and will get his share of points in every game. Bridges, the o ther for- ward, is a wonderful floor man, a good defensive man and a mighty good shot and dribbler. Jim Stuart is a wonder at center and most of Vanderbilt ' s passing attack is built around him. He is a good tip-off man, almost a dead shot, and is the best man on the team to get the ball down the floor. He is hard to beat. Captain Moss, at running guard, plays the same steady brand of good basketball that has made him be recog- nized as a strong link in the team. Moss can stick to any one man closer than a leech and he also comes in for his goals from the field when they are needed, as evi- denced b ' his goal from the middle of the floor against Ole Miss when Vandy was one point behind and there was I minute to play. He is a good floor man. John McCall, at back guard, with his 6 feet, 3 or 4 inches of height, is the best back guard seen on an S. I. C. team in many a moon. He gets the ball off the backboard practically every time and is always busy knocking down shots that have already left the oppo- nents ' hands. It is a pleasure to watch anyone that is as good as he is play. Besides these five regulars there are several capable men who play in most of the games, and will form a nucleus for a strong team next year. Among these are Vernon Sharp, center and guard ; John Thomas, forward, and Allen Sharp, forward. Within the last two weeks, Willie Martin, a varsity forward from last year ' s team, has come out and will add strength to the team, as he is a mighty good little forward. The team is managed by Alfred Benjamin, who is ably assisted by Charlie Cook and Gus Puryear.

Following the Nashville games come the annual invasion of the Northern teams, Vanderbilt winning from Defiance, and three games from Indiana, but dropped two to the great Michigan team. After splitting a two-game series with Auburn, the Commodores invaded Georgia for four games, the trip proving very disastrous. At Athens, the first game was lost to the University of Georgia, 5-3, Moss pitching a great game and deserving to win. On the next day the Vandy team fell be- fore the shoots of " Shaky " Koin, while the Bulldogs hit the offerings of Creson, Cargile, and Russell freely, the score being 16-4. From Athens the Commodores journeyed to Atlanta, there dropping a two-game series to Georgia Tech, the conference champions. The majority of the remaining home games were won by Vanderbilt, but the season ended by their defeat in two games by Alabama at Tuscaloosa. Much tribute should go to Josh Cody, coach of the Commodores, for his work with the Vandy team last year. Although the season could not be called a successful one, the Commodores were always dan- gerous and a real threat. Malcolm Moss and Kitty Creson bore the pitch- ing burden, rating with the leaders in the confer- ence, while George Waller, dividing his time be- tween baseball and track, won a majority of his games, as did Neil Cargile. Red Sanders led the team in hitting with a .390 mark, as well as being the most dependable fielder on the s(|uad, and as a recognition of this he was chosen by his teammates for the 1927 captaincy. The squad was composed of: Jack McEachern, manager; Miller, captain and catcher; Moss, Cre- son, George Waller, and Cargile, pitchers; Russell, pitcher and utility; Nig Waller, first base; Red Sanders, second base; Owen, shortstop; Spears, third 258 ' V NDY o 30 I061I 0Z £7Ae COMMOtB-REjP S ' o o on Waller base; Heiidrix, left field; Year- Avood and Ledyard, center field, and Lancaster, right field. The only letter man to be lost from the 1926 team is Captain Cleo Miller, veteran catcher, and Avith Country Oliver to fill his shoes, and such men from the freshman squad as Boone, Haw- kins, and others, in 1927 Vander- bilt should possess one of the greatest teams to repre- sent that institution in many years. For the 1927 season, Bill Schwartz, former man- ager of the Nashville club and Commodore coach, has been obtained in the absence of Josh Cody, and this fact in itself assures a winning team. An ex- tensive Eastern trip has been planned, including games with Yale, Princeton, Harvard, Dartmouth, Holv Cross, Pennsylvania and others.

Mitligan, Scheely. Second Row — Killebrew, McLester, In Appreciation Does Vanderbilt have Spirit? How often we hear this about the campus! To really have this question answered go and watch the boys who go day in and day out to aid the teams with the disagreeable work of putting up the old suits, fishing out a pair of track shoes or locating a helmet or pair of shoulder pads that were thrown away in the excitement of undress- ing. Certainly there is no surer guarantee of the preservation of a spirit than this incessant toil. They labor not for renown, not for financial reward, but from loyalty to a cause. In such a situation spirit thrives. May this heritage continue to pass on from class to class and may all assistant managers be as loyal and deserving as those of the past. They get no cheers, they get no publicity — but the teams know what they really mean — they personify the Spirit of Vanderbilt that cannot die. 260 3or : ' NDy . 30 Track % 0 1 0 e C0MM0O3TO K Track The Commodores, for the second straight ear, were undefeated in dual meets. A review of the season showed that they were exceptionally strong in the field events, as they have been for three years, and were strong in the events from the 440 on up through the 2-mile run in the track events. Their 100-yard men were good and they were weakest in the hurdles, high jump and broad jump. On April the tenth Vanderhilt sent the varsity and freshman i-mile relay team to the Georgia Tech relays held in Atlaiita, and came in second to Miss A. and M. in 3:27, in the varsity race and the yearlings won their race. The following Saturday Coach Bill ' s boys defeated Kentucky State 68-49 ' " very interesting meet. Kentucky was very strong in the dashes, the pole vault and both jumps, but as a whole were exceedingly weak in the field events. Vanderbilt won eight first places. o 262 30 r AnXT 30 V " PL Dfie COMMOIjOT m o Courtney. A. Smith. Wilson. Bryan. Baskette, Tiirill At New Orleans the Tiilane Greenies were met and defeated on a very wet track by the score of 55-35. The jumps, pole vault and 220 low hurdles were cancelled, due to the dangerous footing. Tulane won firsts in the 220-yard dash, the 100-yard dash and the high hurdles, and Vanderbilt won first h the remaining events. Again the superiority of the Commodore field team was demonstrated in that Tulane made only 6 points in all the field events. They are still talking about Van Order, the iron man from Vanderbilt. He won both the mile and 2-mile runs with ease. Very few outstanding marks were made ' due to the condition of the track, but it was a good meet. Georgia Tech was met in Atlanta the following Saturday, and they too met defeat by the score of 88 1-3 to 642-3 in a meet that was full of thrills and was much closer than the score would indicate. Tech won five firsts and Vanderbilt ten. They won in the low hurdles, the run- ning high jump, the running broad jump, the shot put and the two-mile run. The Volunteers from t ' niversity of Tennessee were the next to fall before the thinly clad team from ' an(lerbilt. Theirs was an overwhelming defeat, the score being 79J J to gy ' j, the outstanding performance being Bill Hooff ' s mark of 2:02 in the ' j-mile run. Vanderbilt won 12 firsts to Tennessee ' s 3 and there was that much difference in the strength of the two teams. By this time the Commodores were in perfect condition and were unbeatable. This meet was the last for (i) Peterson, the high-point man of the squad; (2) Bryan, the best shot-putter Vanderbilt has ever had; (3) Waller, the best pole vaulter Vanderbilt has ever had; (4) Van Order, who was good for 10 points in any dual meet; (5) Captain Roberts, who has been a consistently good man in the loo-vard, 220-yard dash, the 440 and in the broad jump; (6) Hoot Gibson, one of the record-breaking relay team, and a mighty good 440 and 220-yard man; (7) Aztec Jones, a good quarter man; (8) Ewing Baskette, a hard-working half-miler and miler. Vanderbilt ' s record in Southern track circles during the past three years has surpassed that of any other school. Owing to financial difficulties there was no team entered last year in the Conference. Only the mile relay (piartet entered and they made history. Those making letters were: Captain Roberts, Jones, Blake, Van Order, Keene, Br an, Peterson, Hooff, Gibson, Ferrell, Smith, Benjamin, Wilson, Chesney and Waller. The team was fortunate in having as its manager a man like Elie Newman, who was thoroughly efficient and a mighty good manager. o ? 263 or " YANVy zor no £7Xe COMMOIDT .E Relay Coach Rill Anderson has again proven that he is the king of them all when it comes to developing one-mile relay teams. This event has long been his hobby, and he has from time to time developed the outstanding mile quartets in the south, but the one pictured above is the best of the lot, and three of them are Sophomores, proving that Coach Bill is a genius along these lines. There was much discussion just before the conference meet which was held in Chapel Hill, N. C, as to whether or not Vanderbilt should enter any men. There was a vote taken and it was decided to send the relay team. The old record of 3.25-2 was made in 192 1 by another of Coach Anderson ' s quartets, and had held for five years, and there wasn ' t any serious thought before the meet that it would be broken. Maryland was the favorite in this event, and on the second day of the meet, this last event of the week was started with Maryland the overwhelming favorite and Vanderbilt listed as a dark horse entry. Hoot Gibson started for Vandy and was off to the best race of his career; then followed Chesney, then Bill Hooff and by this time the race had developed into a battle between Mary- land and Vanderbilt, and there were left only Endslow, the fastest man that Mary- land had and our own Vaughn Blake as anchor men. Hooff passed the baton to Blake a full 6 yards behind Endslow and then a race was started ! On to the far turn they raced, and the laryland coach at this juncture said, " Well, boy, they vvill never catch Endslow. " At that Coach Bill said, " Well, I don ' t know, that Blake boy is pretty fast. " And just at that instant as they were rounding the far curve Blake by a superhuman effort closed in on Endslow and as they came into the final straightaway he kept creeping up until about 20 yards from the finish, Blake burst in front of him and broke the tape fully three yards in front, establishing the record breaking time of 3 minutes and 23 seconds. And old Coach Bill smiled, no more than that, walked over to his four boys and said, " And Vanderbilt wins another relay. " It took five stars to break this record and there were five: Hoot Gibson, Chesney, Bill Hooff, Vaughn Blake and Coach Anderson. 264 3or " ym xyr 3.0 I or £7Xe COMMOtD-RE M standing- — Rudder.

Tennis Tennis, that commanding sport practiced so delicately by our English forefather, is no longer doomed to occupy an obscure corner in the great realm of collegiate sports. Besides attracting no small degree of interest as a recreational e.xercise for students of all departments of the university, it now demands the keenest yearly enthusiasm of devotees to this sport as an intercollegiate event. The season of 1926 proved a most unusual one. On the home courts hotly con- tested matches were played with the University of Chattanooga, Cumberland, (jeorgia Tech, and Washington University of St. Louis. The Vanderbilt team met the suc- cess of victor ' in the first two matches, but was stung by the Georgia Jackets and pawed by the Missouri Mules. At Chattanooga, Lebanon and Knoxville, the Vandy rackets were wielded with substantial and stirring victory. The outstanding match of the season was the defeat of Merry and Grant (Southern Intercollegiate champions), of Tech by Thomas and Murray. The squad consisted of Murray, Thomas, Rudder, Lowenstein, Steiner, Peterson, Miller, Smith and Jenkins. The first five men received letters at the close of the year. For this year matches were arranged with University of Tennessee, LTniversity of Chattanooga, Georgia Tech and University of Georgia, Kentucky State, Wash- ington University and University of Cincinnati. Captain Rudder anticipates especial success for the team this season, and regards with optimistic approval the advent of many promising new men to the squad. ] Iuch is expected of Thomas, the stellar player of the preceding season. The freshman class offers future stars in Louis Lowenstein and Don Cram, the present Tennessee state champion. 26s TiNxyy 3 or 30 % 0(1 £7Xe COMMOTjOTJE Swimming Team, 1926 Season Swimming as an intercollegiate sport is still in its infancy at Vanderbilt, largely because of the absence of a pool at the University. Through the courtesy of the Nash- ville Y. M. H. A., however, the squad was able to practice regularly under the direc- tion of Coach Coxwell. Frank Fletcher, backstroke artist, was elected captain-manager. In the dashes, John Templeton, Garner Devoe, John Ball, Went Cunningham and Bill Nestor were used, while Vandy ' s entrants in the breast stroke races were usually Franklin and Rutherford. The plunge was ably cared for by Bill Nestor, captain-elect, and Eldred Holley. Nestor starred consistently in this event, plunging the entire length of the pool — 20 yards — without difficulty, and in 35 seconds or less. Len Kirkes, Waring and Franklin bore the diving responsibilities. Kirkes was a stellar performer, frequently accumulating a perfect score on many of his dives. The 220 free style rested with Dawson, Devoe and Fletcher, and the 160-yard relay team was selected from Templeton, Devoe, Cunningham, Ball and Nestor. Meets with Peabody and the local Y. M. C. A. were held in which the Vander- bilt tankmen emerged victorious, but Georgia Tech sent Vandy down early in April at the Peabody Demonstration School pool by a 51-20 verdict. It was in this meet that Hollingsworth of Tech shattered his own 1 00-yard backstroke record, to set a new S. I. C. mark of 13 2-5 seconds. Vanderbilt out-performed the Tech fish in the fancy diving and the plunge, but was decisively outclassed in the other events. The defeat by Tech emphasized more than ever V anderbilt ' s need for a tank of her own, if she is to compete in this coming sport with other colleges of the south. 266 3:0 E " VA XT ZLO s rT i g?rafcmmMoDPRB F f O or Top Ivow — Dickcrson, Houston, Jonas.

Golf Vandy ' s wielders of wood and iron, captained by Ed Houston, at whose retire- ment the regal robes fell on the capable and manly shoulders of Vance Norfleet, had quite a successful season in the year of our Lord 1925. The duo was nobly assisted in their bunker and fairway chores by Messrs. Jonas, Morse, McConnico and Dickerson. After a terrific fight Vandy lost to Sewanee in the Tennessee Invitation meet, but had their revenge later in the year when they trounced the same team in a dual meet. In a dual meet with ' Bania, the Commodore niblick artists came off second best by the Nassau score of 15-3. The lopsided score gives no indication of the terrific battle that the southern champs were forced to put up before they conquered the Commodores, for every match was close, and many of them were decided on the I Sth hole. The crowning glory of the season was tlie S. I. C. championship at Atlanta. Over the rolling turf of the Druid Hills (lolf Club, the Vandy stars hit their stride, and all of them qualified well down in the first flight. One of the RIack and Gold aces survived to the semi-final round when Vance Norfleet, captain of the team, was eliminated by Bobby Baugh, who won the S. I. C. championship in the finals. In his conquering march, Norfleet lay by the wayside Glen Crissman, southern ama- teur champ and golfer extraordinary from Alabama. Those winning letters for their efforts were Captains Houston and Norfleet, Morse, Jonas and McConnico. 267 " VANVY 3 or 30 or ' m±;TMp££7Ae COMMOTjO ' RB I Top Row — Spickaiii, Hunter, Marshhpinier, Rucker, Davis.

After decisive victories over the Betas, S. A, E.s and Sigma Nus, the Deke team was unconcjuerahle in the final fray. The game started off as if the outcome was in doubt. .After a round at the bat, the Deke swatters learned to hit the curved ball of the Kappa Sigma southpaw, Sharp. From the fifth inning on, the winners were never in danger. Due to the whirlwind pitching of Captain A i Farrar, little hope was held out by the opponents for victory. He was always able to pull out of a hole with his fast curve ball. With a backstop like Lawson Davis, there was never a chance to steal. He was the outstanding catcher in the interfraternity tournament. The Dekes never were in real batting forin until the championship tilt. Everyone on the team reached their hitting stride in that game. .Although the underhand pitching of Farrar was the main cog in the victory, he was very ably supported by his teammates. Whitnell held down the first sack every game. With Draper and Baird, the flashes from Dyersburg, Tenn,, alternating on second, that corner of the field was airtight. McLester held down the shortstop position. On the warm corner Windy Williams detained every ball in that direction. Nance, Rucker and Spickard were the flychasers for the winners. Rucker did not make an error in the tournament. His ability to cover every portion of the field was uncanny. The Dekes are expecting to win the thirteenth cup next year, with every man returning to school. 268 :ioi: TANVY o g f- f OA, CBMMOPORB P ? or " ■■. ., « o WWl X- Iv l S Top Row — Pierpp. Mcf ' onniro.

Interfraternity Basketball The loving cup offered by the Pan-Hellenic Council to the champions of the 1927 inter- fraternity basketball tournament, was won by the Sigma Alpha Epsilon team as the result of four consecutive victories over rival fives. After defeating the Phi Kappa Sigmas, the Kappa Alphas and the .Mpha Tau Omegas, the champions proved their superiority by handing the Phi Kappa Ps basketeers a 40 to 28 setback in the final game of the tourney. The A. T. O. team, which had won the championship for two consecutive years, was put out of the running by a 25-21 defeat in the semi-finals. The Phi Kappa Psi players won the right to compete with the S. A. E. ' s in the final game through a victory over the Phi Delta Theta in the semi-finals. The players worked well together, and in none of their games did they trail their opponents in scoring. The combination of Mcllwain and J. Armistead at forwards and Creson at center worked the floor well, and as the result, got a number of crip shots in every contest. Captain Bristow and Baldridge in the guard positions proved towers of strength in keeping their opp o- nents from getting in position to net the ball easily. The regular team was augmented by a number of capable substitutes in Fleming, Pierce, Early, McConnico and Hampton. All of the basekteers were accurate in their shooting and employed the five-man defense with apparent eflfectiveness. The team started by the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity in the final game was composed of Milliken and Warner, forwards; Graves, center, and Dangler and Johnson, guards. 269 NDY i: 3 or ao OK £7Ae COMMOTjORB A ' Martin, Smith.

Others contributing to the total of points for the Kappa Sigs were Baker and Martin in the javelin throw. Smith in the pole vault, Ryan in the discus throw and Hultsman in the two-mile run.

The order is divided into three lodges.

With the Williams guiding gen- ius at the helm and Bell as his second in command in charge of the administrative side of the or- der, great success is predicted for the young society. The other of- ficer is Mr. Dismukes, who is em- powered to act on all excuses which any of the members might see fit to offer from time to time to save him the demoralizing ef- fect of too much idleness.

Tired of pay- ing annually for a drunken brawl at which the taxi driver element predominated, the co-educational lassies this year decreed that no mere man could attend their shin- digs without ensconcing his frame in a tuxedo. The fraternity boys, gullible to a high point, were duly impressed by the righteousness of the feminine demands, and Sam Bittner did a thi-iving business be- fore each dance.

After pleading most beseech- ingly for, and finally being prom- ised, a " no-break. " he absented himself when the time for the dance came. It seems that the lights had gone out, so that our beloved lady had to call loudly for her partner.

It is expected that action will be taken in this case shortly, sin e such an open jilt can never pass unavenged.

FLO ZIEGFELD ADDS IRBY HUDSON TO HIS " GLORIFICATIONS " Ada Belle Stapleton. Ph.D., is the popular Dean of Women at Vanderbilt University. Charles Madison Sarratt, A.M.. a member of the Sigma Nu frater- nity, serves a like function for the men of the University. Dr. Sar- ratt is frequently seen at social gatherings on the campus. Vanderbilt University has sus- tained a very grievous loss in one of her most eminent professors this year. It is rather coincidental that Mr. Flo Ziegfeld has lost one of his n ost magnetic glories in the person of Will Rogers. As is com- monly known, Rogers ' scintillating humor and general line of bull was. before he started f ree lanc- ing, one of the most pleasing parts of the nightly performance at the New Amsterdam theater. During the month of February Mr. Irby Roland Hudson, the fa- mous lariat thrower and broncho breaker of the Vanderbilt Univer- sity faculty, left for sections somewhere east. It was the con- census of opinion thaP Irb ' had gone to take graduate work at Columbia University, and in con- nection with this work to prove that Messrs. Ogg and Ray know little or nothing concerning the Science of governmental machin- ery. This was all very well, but the " Virgin " staff has ju. ' =t had an in- Irby I)arling: What could I do (for quality rcdits) without your course? It ' s certainly not every co-ed who can rate in your classes, I feel right proud about it. Of course your stories about freight trains in Georgia and Professor Beard at Columbia get a trifle old at times, but I can stand them as long as 1 pull down that big " A. " Lovingly. CAROLYN COBB. ter lew witli a young gentleman who has only recently returned from New York. This joung man. whose name we liave Vieen re- el nested to withhold, brought us the disconcei ' ting news that our old friend Irby has been decei ' ing his friends. He goes on to say: " One night I deiided, as my slay in New York was coming to a close, that I ought to see the New Edition of the Follies, I secured seats and went to the evening performanie. ] enjoyed the glorifiiation im- nienselj-. but you can never imag- ine m. ' surprise when, during one of the short intermissions, a for- mer Political Science professor came upon the stage clad in a cowboy suit and twirling a lariat. It was none other than Irby Hud- son himself. To add to my grief, he told with great gusto, both on the part of the audience and liim- self. how he had tricked the Van- derbilt faculty, and was now mak- ing an income from Ziegfeld in addition to the salary paid him by Vanderbilt University during his year ' s leave of absence (much ap- plause). " A last minute report to the " Virgin " brings us the news that Chancellor Kirkland has had his private car, " De Graft. " polished up and is leaving tonight to bring home his erring protege. [Editor ' s Note. — Mr. Hudson has recently denied that he uses Col- gate ' s Shaving Cream for tooth paste.] Little Daddy .Sanders, acknowl- edged Beau Brummel and self- stj ' led authority on gents ' haber- dashery and furnishings, recent 1 - ran afoul of the law while attend- ing a football game between the Twelfth Street Tigers and the First Avenue Hoodlums. A nom- inal admission was charged to de- fray expenses, but Red, refusing to play Santa Claus, was entering via a couple of fences and a stone wall when seized by a strong arm of the law. Sanders told the of- ficer that he had no intention of heating the gate, and was merely choosing the most convenient en- try so that he might pay the sen- tinel, but his explanation failed to convince the Hat -foot, who urged him to cough up the dough. The little daddy resented the implica- tion that lie was dishonest, and calling the officer a such-and-such, he challenged him to physii-al combat. The bull. resenting equally the suggestion that an of- ficer should indulge in strenuous exercise, called Black Maria and gave him a free ride. The trial will be brought up before the League of Nations tribunal in June, and speculation is rife as to the outcome. Sanders meanwhile is out on parole, and being ques- tioned by a " Virgin " reporter, said that the rats in the city calaboose are as big as Airedale dogs.

Alarmed, she took up her hed.side extension telephone and frantieallj- called a neigh hoi- for help. The young man called upon, a figure well known in the younger set, responded nobly to the occa- sion.

Crowe Ransom had imparted to his cohorts all of the skill of the game learned at Oxford over a five o ' clock pink tea-cup. Dr. Messing. Larry Bau- man. Wallie Fleming, and Win- ston Ciam all starred upon Cap- tain Ransom ' s team. Exiitement reached fever heat when Eddie Mims advanced the ball far into the Ransom team ' s territory, but he lost his head for the moment and cracked the ath- letic dian on the shins. A pitched battle ensued for a few minutes, until the Student Council, serving- as ushers at the affair, broke up the massacre. Outside of Eddie ' s goatee being slightly disarranged, no one appeared the worse for the fight. The athletic Dean didn ' t even lose his igar in the tussle. Eddie ' s Advancing Team was made up of W. Clyde Currey. Shy- lock Hart. Gerald Debutante Hen- derson, " Syracuse Kid " Eberling, and the vigorous Advaneer him- self. The Mims men fought hard, but were no match for Ransom ' s Ox- ford polished sijorlsmen. Clad in sun-helmets and shorts, they out- classed their opponents at every stage of the game, despite the en- couraging yells of the great Ad- vancer of, " LTp the Hill! I ' p the Hill! " Immediately following the game, the Crowe Ransom cricket- eers were served with their mild tea, which has proved so indis- pensable in keeping the Oxford athletes in condition. Meanwhile, the Advancing Americans eonsoled themselves by repeating. " Come, my friends, ' tis not too late to seek a newer world. " It is rumored that Chancellor Kirkland is drilling a squad in the style of cricket learned at Leipsiz over steins of old lager. Stars on this team include Paul Doss. Wal- ter Capers, Prof. Owsley, Dan Me- Gugin. and the Chance himself. MUCH INTEREST SHOWN IN CROQUET TEAM Minoi- sports are on the boom at Vanderbilt. Croquet is the lat- est activity, and from the enthus- iasm with which it is being greeted, is rapidly becoming the most popular. The squad numbers about twenty now, and every day new candidates appear on the scene. Coach Dean Stapleton has se ' - eral veteran croquet artists at her call. Laird Smith will probably make her a very dependabl e man. William Dismukes is expected to appear in the line-up when the first match is held, and it is n t unreasonable to predict that Dean Sarratt will occupy an important position on the squad. Edwin Meredith Jack Holt Stuart Holmes Waller is anxious to try out for the team, and will do so if he can convince Mr. Schwartz that -ro- quet is more in need of his serv- ices than basi ' ball. Charles Crum has received no small amount of praise for his accurate swinging of the mallet, and his presence on the squad is expected, so that he can have somewhei ' e else besides law school to attend dressed in knickers. The major was no clouch at croqeut in Birmingham, and twice was men- tioned on All-City selections. His knowledge of the game has led him to invent the famous Crum Stroke, noted in billiards as well as croquet. Jimmy Kirkland has agreed to declare a holiday if the Vander- bilt croquet outfit wins the South- ern Conference title. Matches have been scheduled with Pea- body, Scarritt. St. Cecelia, and Little Sisters of the Poor.

Even Cuckoo Mims ' old record was shattered by the gal- loping Brown. Much credit for this feat must go to Carey Bringle. trainer and conditioner of Brown.

Active movements are growing fewer and fewer in occurrence, it was said, due to the supply end of the well-known supply and de- mand law having become exag- gerated beyond all expectations. Casualties during the last week, according to official Peabody bul- letins, were only seven in number. Oflicials of the other party were hesitant yesterday about making any statement until told of the casualty report the Peabody army had released for publication. " Why.

This is the aftermath of a visit to the institution of Dwight Webb, Jr., 45 years old, of 2019 Broad Street, in which young Webb went through the painful experience of losing a garter while passing through a group of some forty of the inmates gathered on the cam- pus. A strict ban on garters will not be put in effect at once, it was in- dicated, although their use among young men visitors will be dis- couraged. A special officer has been appointed to examine the elastics about the nether limbs of all men entering the campus gates. This, Dr. Blanton pointed out. is a service unique among even the most modern schools for girls and junior colleges for young women.

There has been wide discussion concerning this sudden move of hers, and more than one explanation has been of- fered. Neighbors of a well-known so- rority house on Twenty-fourth avenue have been complaining to the ice company rather bitterly of the poor service the ice man has been rendering them. They say that he spends as much as an hour a day in delivering ice to this one sorority house.

Fable of the Earnest Youth Seeking An Education Not by George Ade, nor did Aesop say this 2000 years ago. Once Upon a Time there was a Young Man. It may be that he still Is. He was an Earnest young Man, Seeking an Education. Lacking in the Wisdom of the World, at the end of his Preparatory Training he del ided to Go to a University. And so he went to Vanderbilt. James (that was what they Calle d him) was Green, the Soph-o- mores told him. He told the Soph-o-mores that he was White — and that he could Lick any Man who said anything Different. One Man — a Football Player — .said Something Different. That Accounted for James ' first Year at Y ' anderbilt. Being 111 at the Beginning of the Second Y ' ear and so unable to Protect himself, they made him a Soph-o-morc. This Year he was going to Learn a Lot and Make Mama and Papa and Uncle Josh, who Loaned him the Jack to Go To School on. Proud of him. In Ju.stice to James, it must be said that he Learned a Great Deal this year — how to Avoid .such unwelcome Appointments as Meeting Classes, how to Drink the Stuff they used to kill the Mange on the Pigs at Home, and he Learned how to Play the Fairer .Sex. His Junior Y ' ear he Cha.sed the Broads harder than ever. They Gave him three funny little Marks In a Book Called Quality Credit.s. It seems that he tiad to have a Certain Number of these Credits before he Graduated. Well, at the End of His Senior Year they wanted to Graduate him. That was Agreeable to him, because he Estimated that he was Edu- cated anyhow, and he didn ' t see how they could make him Stay an- other Year unless it was because they Liked him so much that they just couldn ' t Let Him Go. As he walked up on the Platform to get the Fleece Lined Sheei)Skin. he was almost Washed Away by an Undercurrent of Dissatisfaction; he was Thinking tfor the First Time in Four Years) of all the Mar- mons he ' d have by now if he hadn ' t Gone to College, but had gone to Work in Steven ' s Grocery like Papa had wanted him to. So he says to the Old Geezer who was Invested with the Authority that he wasn ' t quite Satisfied with the amount of Learnin ' he had Picked Up at the University, and that he Hoped some Future .Student would go through the Dear Old Place and come out with an Educ-ation. " Well. Boys and Girls. " the Nice Old Geezer said, " I reek-on we ' re goin ' to have to give this Y ' oung Man another Chance to get that Education. " , t the end of the Seventh Y ' ear James Walked the Platform the Second Time. This Time he didn ' t Say much, but just Bent Over and Touched His Lips to the Old Geezer ' s black Academic Robes. They Graduated him with High Honors. MORAL: Well, ain ' t it obvious? Anyhow, educated people should be well-versed in the art of kissing people ' s feet. Also, Don ' t hmit a gift horse in the mouth unless you see you ' ve got him.

I ' hat college students are divinely in- pircd with all the qualities of leadership of men. 2. That those dwelling without the colle- giate sphere of influence are beyond the pale insofar as any claims to real learnining are concerned. 3. That the objection of " self-made " men to the university education invariably is based upon jealousy of the superior advantages therein offered. +. That higher education excuses every- thing, even unto downright rudeness. 5. That professors are no more than im- practical minded fools, incapable of making a living in any other way. 6. That, espousing radical principles, they are the very first to see a means to reforming a world that is all wrong. 7. That the co-ed really is a being less at- tractive generally than his " nice girl " or " dark horse " friends. 8. That two or three Greek letters, a lot of mysterious, grumbling formulae, an esoteric handshake, and an impressive ritualistic cere- mony set them above those others they choose to call ' barbarians. " 9. That the good marks their instructors ■give " them are a real measure of their in- tellectual worth. 10. That the bad marks they received show either unfair favoritism on the part of the teacher, or else prove that said teacher is ut- terly lacking in the appreciation of real aca- demic distinction. 11. That they must conform to the standaril set by his fellows in every particular if they are to be persons worth while being at all. 12. That they must not conform in any par- ticular to any standard set by other people if they are to be persons worth while being at all. 13. That the way a man wears his clothes and ties his neckties and shakes hands are in- fallible measures of his desirability or unde- sirability as a companion. 14. That bad whisky, with the resultant dark brown feeling the next morning, is to be preferred to going to the dance dead sober. 15. That the social prestige university con- nections give them will be recognized after they are out of school by the very people who accord them that prestige. 16. That everything that is is wrong; that everything he thinks should be is right. 17. That social contacts are the greatest good college has to offer them. 18. That they are qualified competently to pass judgment upon any aspect of living, art, or science. 19. That culture exists only as a thing to be talked about; that it is gained inevitably through university residence, and that it is gained in no other way. 20. That athletes, though never so " dumb, " should be kept in school for the honor of dear old and the advertising the school gains through having good athletic teams. 21. That it is better to be well liked than to have positive ideas of their own on matters where the custom has been to conform. 22. That sentimentalizing is the highest tribute one can pay to " the old school. " 23. That they are fitted upon graduation to carry out the functions of any job whatever. 24. That the established order is in any re- spect different fromthe order they themselves will set up when twenty years out of school. 25. That the man in university residence has a real claim to being deemed a person by those with whom he comes in contact. The list might be continued ad infinitum.

IMi-PONG TOURNAMENT INNO- VATKD BY DEAN OF AVOMEN One of the newest activities on the campus is the mucli-discussfd ping-ponj ' tournament, originated and refereed l y Ada Bell Stapleton. The eminent Dean has gathered under her wing the best ping-pong talent in Vanderbilt, in the persons of Tyree Fain, Laird Smith, Wm. nismukes, and Marshall Eldred. Alden Smith has applied for permission to en- ter the contest, but it is doubtful if he will be allowed to participate in this ex- pert company. Tyree Fain, famous for co-ed parties and dates with the Dean of Women, has excellent chances of winning the sterling silver loving cup awarded by the Kappa Alpha Thetas to the best ping-pong man in Vanderbilt. Marshall Eldred will pitjbably run him a close race. Dismukes and Laird Smith are better known as exponents of tidley-winks, but their entrance into the contest is being received with much fervor. It is rumored that the tournament winner will have the privilege of escort- ing the eminent Dean to the Junior Prom. 2S6 inor " VAi cay o 30 c " r l £ Ae COMMOljOra F THE ADVERTISERS In this book deserve the thanks as well as the patronage of the student body. By purchasing space in our adver- tising section, they provide about one-fourth of our total revenue, thereby making possible an annual more repre- sentative of Vanderbilt University. Although it is oin- sincere belief that they will receive the full worth of the money expended with us, in justice to them it must be said that the quit! pro quo has been only one of the considerations which has prompted their assistance. Aside from the mere pecuniary gain which they will receive from the investment, many of our ad- vertisers have been actuated by a desire to show their ap- preciation of past courtesies and their interest in the wel- fare of the University. We sincerely trust that the student body will evidence its gratitude for this co-oi)eration by referring to the succeeding pages before contributing to the support of others who have failed to show this spirit of community interest.

Gas is coal stripped for action, with all the labor, ashes and muss removed. Gas is the most reliable fuel. It is even more reliable than coal or oil. To fully appreciate this, ask your coal dealer, or your oil dealer, what his additional charge will be to guarantee for the next sixty years to deliver night or day, at your garage, in less than one second ' s notice, any quantity of fuel you wish. Your gas company practically makes this con- tract with your when it installs its mains. Gas is a force, like your arm. But the burn- er equipment used is the tool! Your arm can pound with a hammer, pull with a Stillson wrench, cut steel with a hack-saw. or drill holes in a motor block with a drill.

The Naskville, Ckattanooga St. Louis Railway Stampede in Beta Stables Disturbs Neighborhood A recent nocturnal commotion which kept the nearby Thetas from the pursuit of their studies and which, consequently, Caretaker Ada Kell Stapleton personally investigated, occurred last night at the Beta Twenty-fourth Street stud farm. A loud, agonized winnow- ing, followed by several emotionally staccato neighs, attracted the attention of passers-by, who summoned Special Officer Stapleton. The result of Stapleton ' s findings follow: I. That Rushton III., a valuable filly, by Thomas F., out of Marshall G., was l ing on his spine, kicking his four paws madly in the ozone. II. That the aforesaid football activities resulted from Trainer Ownbey ' s carelessness in putting too much Peruna in the feed-bag. The offender, Ownbey, was immediately apprehended, and the S. P. C. A. is using its inexhaustible treasury fund to secure his in- dictment. For this brilliant piece of detective work Lieutenant Stapleton was awarded the Scot- land Yard medal for Research in i8th Cen- lurv Comedv. HANCOCK TIRE COMPANY IS. CMI ' I ' ll. ( OIK.
