"TD you, Judge of our ICO rk,

•we coiiiniit this volume. To us,
the editors, you entrusted the task of
producing ci hook ivhich shouhh rep-
resent the whole student body. Try-
ing difficulties have beset our paths
in this crucial year. 7'/;^ task was
great and the responsibility heavy,
but we have atten/pted neither to
slight the one nor shrink from the
other. If we have failed we are
most culpable. If we hiave achieved
any small measure of success our
work has tujt been in vain.

The golden moon does brightly beam.
The silver starlight softly gleam,
And I, so madly, wildly, dream,
When she's around.

My troubles seem to dro]) l)thinil.
No anxious cares oppress my mind ;
And nature's face is always kind.
When she's around.

'Mid hurrying noontide's happy ray.
And gath'ring twilight's misty gray.
To live is joy, through all life's day.
When she's around.

Where cviiining foes advance,
Encamp our soldiers brave and true,
Somewhere in France.

They do not flee the bursting shell.
No fears their charge enhance :
They boldly face war's seething hell.
Somewhere in France.

Oh, God of battles, in thy might,
Give strength for their advance!
Oh, aid their struggle for the right,
Somewhere in France!

High an<l mighty I^xaUed Roost-
er of the Order of the Fhngers of
Durliam. Thi.s shiny-eyed lad is a
mess with the women, often getting
as many as one kiss in twelve nights.
He is some musician, too; he knows
three chords and all the discords on
his guitar, executing "Over There"
and "Love's Old Sweet Song" with
impartial slaughter. Let us give you
a piece of advice. If ever you are
down and out, do not go to the doc-
tor for a prescrii)tion, but go to
"Pike," let him joke with you half
an hour, and you may be assured that
your blues are a thing of the past.

■■.Is good to be out of the
World as out of the Fashion."

Charley is a thing of beauty and —
perhaps a joy forever. With his del-
icately hunched shoulders and the
sweeping curve of his spinal column,
he truly is the Beau Brummel of Da-
vidson College. He is a student of
great fame, often remaining upon the
campus as many as two days a week,
and life wouldn't be worth living if
he couldn't attend a hop or two every
month in Charlotte, yet he manages
to .slip away with the high marks in
some manner. Charley is said to be
a lady-killer, but as yet we have
heard of no injuries. The possessor
of a bright mind and a splendid ex-
ecutive ability, he will later get there

"/ loz'c quiet solitude and such society

As is quiet, nice and yood."

Joe means well and is harmless so
long as lie is not disturbed. He is
really a handsome youth with his
china-blue eyes and Esauesque ap-
pearance. He can usually be seen in
a state of placid repose in front of
his palatial domicile, Watts. He
snickers around the ladies,
thereby to gain the sobriquet of
"cute" — and from some of their ac-
counts he really gains it. As a room-
mate for "Casey," he proved a suc-
cess so we know that he will make
some suffragette a good husband
steady man and the Class of '18 as-
some of these days. Joe is a good,
sures him of success.

'He adorned whatever subject he

either spoke or wrote upon by the

most splendid eloquence."

"And a great and strong wind rent the
mountains" — This quotation surely
fits this noble representative of Atlanta
or;itory at D. C. When "Jargr" Bell-
ingrath first sttuck the Hill fiew recog-
nized hin as a Demosthenes in embryo.
None knew that in his system slept the
spirit of a Webster and the ability of a
Clay. With a determination grim as
death and a fine steel spring driving a
clockwork of precision we predict that
Bcllingrath will some day represent his
city ward on the police force.

We have always known that Da-
vidson had a httle suburb attached to
the southern part of it. but we did
not realize what there was ni it until
we met Bennie. It is really surpris-
ing what these little towns will pro-
duce. Bennie started out many
moons ago to toil in the pathways
and byways of knowledge, but each
year he realized that he had not
found a class which he could .h""0''
enough to graduate witli, until this
year he cast his lot with us. Bennie
is an optimist. He really doesn t
know how to worry and the fact that
he carries seven or eight tickets docs
not dispel "that smile that wont

"Do you seek his equal. ''

jVoiii' is, except himself."

If this man hasn't driven every
professor on the Faculty crazy, it
isn't his fault. For goodness knows,
he has asked enough questions to do
so. This "camouflage" perhaps ac-
counts for his high marks because
Woody never gives the Faculty a
chance to find out how little he really
studies. His position as orderly on
the staflF of General Fetzer and Cap-
tain King has also inspired master-
pieces of totally unnecessary knowl-
edge on the part of some of the pri-
vates involved. However, like his
famous kinsman. Woodrow gets
there just the same.

"/ am a man and nothing that con-

indifference to me."
When this man was a Freshman he
would cover biscuit after biscuit with
a sweet, viscous, mellifluous, black
liquid, otherwise known as "zip," and
thus he has been called ever since.
"Zip" has made progress since his ar-
rival here at Davidson. He recogniz-
ed the superior advantages (?) of
Rumple over Chambers and is now a
confirmed Rumpleite. Believe me.
this man believes in exercise. The
authorities could profitably rent his
room as a gymnasium for the rest of
us. "Zip" is an optimistic lad and
never believes in allowing his studies
to interfere with him, though he pulls
down the \'. G.'s consistently."

This man hails from the red hills

run four-forty, break ladies' hearts
and swipe watermelons (or maybe
pears). George has been a decisive
factor in the building up of our suc-
cessful track team for George's

bill. He would have been a Venus
de Milo but he lacks the Grecian
nose. All the girls and all the boys

The village of Wiltnington, N. C,
wished this prodigy upon us in the
fall of 1914. Once in a while Wil-
liam uses his spare time to study. At
other tiines he writes highbrow po-
etry (so-called), keeps books and de-
bates in the Phi. Society. As Ser-
geant of Co. "C." Gumming has put
his foot on the bottom rung of the
ladder leading to "Somewhere in

predict that William will be a big
factor in the "CimiTiiing" generation.

Emory and Henry is a loser and
Davidson is a gainer, for this effer-
vescent ebullition of humanity is in
truth an extraordinary phenomenon.
He can tell you more things in two
minutes than you ever dreamed could
have happened and some that you
knew could not. Virginia girls, foot-
ball, tailoring agencies, cissoids, or
what-not, he'll give you some infor-
mation on them. Chemistry is his
long suit and it's full peg at that. As
a rule the world likes a man that is
full of fun. always happy, and cheery,
so there are not many doubts but
that Locke will "go over the top" as
a success in this world.

bine to make him a truly great man.

"Thinking is but un idle waste uf


Samuel Mosely Davis, otherwise
known as "Bing," made his first ap-
pearance in this orb of misery in that
little burg which bears the eupho-
nistic appellation of Mt. Olive, N. C.
"Bing" doesn't believe in letting you
know he is around but he most as-
suredly is, for he has given the honor
roll the scare of its existence, since
he has been here. He is a specialist
in beating time to the "tune of a ra-
diator." The Freshmen all love and
adore him because of his tender sol-
icitations in presenting them with nu-
merous Christmas and birthday i)res-
ents. If he fs as faithful in his fu-
ture business as he has been in mak-
ing the punctuality roll we have no
