28 SILVER AND BLUE
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
Nevertheless, wefqflid elect Ray
Strain of Hill City, Ga., for Presi-
den-tg Brewster Manning of Ar-
muchee, Ga., for Vice-President, and.
Garland Bagley of Cumming, Ga.,
for Secnetary and Treasurer.
Then came one to make of us an
picture and he did so and same was
good. What think ye of it?
Now we found ourselves in the
midst of the seasons of Baseball and
Track. 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
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..

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
"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.
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.

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.
Oh, yes, I see it now,
It's the thoughtful look
On the face of the cow.
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.
Margery faged fivej-I s'pose I
ought to be looking for a husband
Spinster aunt-Why, dear?
Margery-I heard papa say you'd
been looking for one for 20 years,
so I'll begin early.
