28 SILVER AND BLUE Frosh History And there was ignorance in the land, and this did trouble the soul of Leland, of the family of Green, overseer of the College of Berry. Wherefore he sent forth an invitation for all to come and drink of the fountain of knowledge. And there came forth seventy and six, and this pleased the overseer, and he sent us unto the house of Hoge, who did take from us our dollars and broke us. Then did the Sophs descend upon us and they said unto us, "Dance", and again, "Sing", and yet again, "Make ye love unto this pillow," and we did all of these things. Now, we begot ourselves unto a certain potato patch by night for to organize, but the Sophs did set- tle upon us as locusts and we fled from the wrath to come, and each chose his own way, neither did any stand upon the order of his going. Perchance one of those fieeing did seek refuge in an dairy barn, and he knew not of the animals within, and a cow did rush upon him, and he sought vainly for the door, and as he raced about in the barn thought he to himself, "Verily, there is fear within and a foe without this barn." Finally found he the door and did cast himself into outer dark- ness, where there was gnashing of teeth, for the Sophs had laid hold upon some. 9 Nevertheless, wefqflid elect Ray Strain of Hill City, Ga., for Presi- den-tg Brewster Manning of Ar- muchee, Ga., for Vice-President, and.

For the harvest of Baseball we did furnish Jack Strain, Asa Capps, Gus Jarrett, Roy Adams, Fielding Tanner, and Harwell Mal- lory. For Track: Fielding Tanner, Jack Strain, Roy Adams, Gus Jarrett, Coatney Davis, and Garland Bagley. Meanwhile, the Sophs, murmured against us, saying among themselves, "We will make them wear' blue caps, and salute us, 'that they may be known from us." Now, this murmuring came unto our ears and we gathered all together and clinched our fists and smote the air and said, "With what power will ye make us do these thing? Him who would make an Freshman wear a blue cap upon his head should be one, yea, and it should be glued unto his ears," And we chade them for we were wrath with an exceeding great anger. Wherefore they did not the iniquity planned in their hearts against us. We did have many feasts and parties unto ourselves. But on the fourteenth day of the fourth month of the new year we assembled 0ursel-- ves unto the mountains and picnicked a whole day. Notwithstanding the pleasure of the occasion we strove- mightly at night time for our beds, and were comforted. In the Musical Organizations, which are various and sundred, the following played and sang our name to honor and glory: Choir: J. T..

All these, and many other things did we do but it is not fitting that they be recounted here. Rules of Three Three things to govern--temper, tongue, and conduct. Three things to command-thrift industry and promptness. Three things to despise-cruelty, arrogance and ingratitude. Three things to wish for-health, friends and contentment. Three things to admire-dignity, gracefulness and intellectual power. -The Valley Echo! His sister called him "Willie", His mother caled him "Will", But when he went 'to college, To dad 'twas, "Bill, Bill, Bill." A loud objectionable bore had been talking for hours about himself and his achievements. "I'm a self-made man, that's what I am-a self-made man," he said. "You knocked off work too soon," came a quiet voice from the corner. 4- James' mother brought him to school on opening day and said to the teacher: "Little Jimmy is so deli- cate. If he is bad, and sometimes he is, just whip the boy next to him. That will frighten my boy and make him behave." -Exchange. y KI., D 3 YS 459 ' f ' 5 Lee: Why did Noah take two of each kind of animal into the Ark? Luke: Because he didn't believe the story about the stork. The gum-chewing girl And the cud-chewing cow Are somewhat alike, Yet different somehow. What difference? Oh, yes, I see it now, It's the thoughtful look On the face of the cow. -Selected. Ruth rode in my new cycle car, In the seat in back of meg I hit a bump at fifty-five, And rode on Ruthlessly. -Ward-Belmont Hyphen. Margery faged fivej-I s'pose I ought to be looking for a husband right now. Spinster aunt-Why, dear? Margery-I heard papa say you'd been looking for one for 20 years, so I'll begin early.
