FLORIDA STATE COU-'- FO WOM.I
AS A RECOGNITION OF HIS UNFALTERING
FIDELITY TO THE INTERESTS OF THE
STUDENTS, HIS CONSTANT SYMPATHY WITH
THEIR ASPIRATIONS, AND AS A FEEBLE
EXPRESSION OF THEIR APPRECIATION OF
HIS SERVICES TO THE FLORIDA STATE
COLLEGE, THESE PAGES ARE DEDICATED.

SHE ARGO this year needs no introduction to the students of the Florida State College-it is an
established factor, and we hope that it will never lose the interest of the students that it has
hitherto had. The two previous volumes have amply filled the sphere which this publication is intended
to fill, and it will be our endeavor merely to follow in their footsteps, giving to the students a glimpse
of their college life and a book which, we hope, will not only be a souvenir and pleasant reminder of
the college year 1902-3, but will instruct them as well that the Florida State College is making rapid
t strides toward the attainment of her highest desire, to be not only the foremost school of this State,
but to be classes: in the front rank of the colleges of the South.

Five little Seniors,
In a Greek exam., you see,

And then there were three.
" What to learn?" her daily cry
Mounted shrilly to the sky;
She had books galore,
But she sighed and cried for more,
For she'd tried all those she owned;
"Give me new ideas," she moaned.
Some one heard her bitter weeping,
And with eager haste went, leaping,
One little extra
Allowed these to pass,
And once again five
Made up the Senior Class.
Said one Senior to another,
As the two strolled down the hall,
"When we are gone, how will this college
Get along at all?"
Five little Seniors,
One night in June,
Got their diplomas,
And there were none.
' To a book store on the street;
Said, "Give me an Argo Sheet."
At the magazine she took
Just a single careful look,
Then with joy her voice rose stern,
"I at last know what to learn."
No more groans the ears do greet,
She's content with an Argo Sheet.

THREE years ago, seeing the sad condition of our public schools, the fa,-ulty of the Florida State
College organized a normal class for the benefit of our Florida teachers. And truly it may be said that
they have accomplished a work that will live throughout ages to come. For what teacher has gone from
the halls of the college without a firm determination to attain success in his or her work?
At the time of the organization of this class about eighty teachers were in attendance, and each suc-
cessive year it has become larger. Last year eighty-seven members were enr lled, and about the same
number attended the Central School last summer. At present more than ninety students constitute
this class, and Ioir.nl this number almost every county in the S.ii,.. is represented.
The normal department of this college is fast gaining wide renown, and let us hope that ere another
year elapses every teacher ii our State who aspires to fit himself for the duties of the school-room will
enroll his name in the Florida State College. Tnen shall we have more teachers, not keepers merely,
but men and women energetic and enthusiastic in their work.
We also desire to express our thanks to these excellent educators who have taught us that there is
music, yes, blossoms of pleasure in the school-room.

ie tale of e twain lovers,
WHEN that ye shades of ye dqrkenige night were faste _:l,.-ry', around ye com-
Sicile of ye maydenes faire, a certain bold young man with a face which e'en would
make to st,-p ye terrible speed of a locomotive engine, came slipping around from
tree t,. tree with ve agilitie of one who was used to d-dginge ye wylie professors of ye
school upon ye hille. Gazing around to see that no one observed his movements, ye
young man'aforesaid emitted fr. m his throate ye whistel of ye whipporwill. Scarce
hadde he thus done when a window of one of ye rooms that lye above ye dining-room
were thrown open and ye head of a taire hayred damsel was thruste out, and a voice
which seemed to ye young manne like as ye voice of ye syren said, in agents sweete,
Morris, deare, ere that you upon your heale can lurc, y "ur charmer will be with
you prepared to journey hence to ye hamlet which lyes beyond yon hille"
So saying a ropen ladder was flung from ye window to ye I reeze or ye summer
night, and ye damsel of ye fire haire set foot upon it and for one briefe second of
tyme hung suspended between ye heavene and ye eaith, and then, from'some cause,
unknown to ye author of this tale- ye ladder parted, and ye younger manne saw, with grievouse heart,
the forme of ye young mayden of hys choice hurled, as from an catapault, to ye earth beneath. Scarce
darynge to breathe forth from his lungs, oure young manne hurried to her side, in tyme to see her to
rise and utter these words: Morris, my dearest one, feare not, I am all right; for you're sake would
I falle twice ye height of yon window from which I so ingloriously came."
Ye young manne, who hadde feared that he would see his lassye to rise no more, was overjoyed, and
forth they strolled to ye hamlet to blowe in his (?) dough and see ye sircusse, which was e'en then per-
forming on ye greene some rods beyond ye school. Arriving at ye Wightes' tavern, he, with a lavish
display and her money, sette up to ye drinks in thys lamous retreat of lounge couples. Then anon,
journying hence by ye highway yclept Monroe, they with the boldness of adepts pass ye house of ye
President, and wend their way to ye pageantry which showeth beneath ye hille.
They proceed through ye tente of ye animals, where they gaze with wonder for yo first tyme upon1
that species of animal yclopt elephauntus, into ye tent beyond, where while waiting for ye perform-
ance to begin, they, with ye remaining parte of ye damsel's monie, buy and drink red. lemonade, the
like of which is scene only in ye paegeantes. In a short while ye ringe is occupied by an score of horses
ye like of which they have never seene before, and they gaze with wonder upon ye antics of ye frolic-
some coltes. Likewise, albeit they have made the starlinge discovery that ye Presidente is there, they
with ye enjoyment characteristic of young childer, are enraptured with ye tricks which follow. In ye
midst of ye rendition of ye olde and charmynge ballade-
"Wont you come home, Willie Baylie,"
he, ye young manne of ye terrible countenance aforesaid, perceives that ye Presidente is hunnmynge ye
tune along with ye band, and that he has paraphrased it so as to singe-
Won't you go home, young Givenes,"
whereupon ye young manner takes ye hint and starts, but ye Presidento seeing that ye young manne is
about to take unto himself his departure, says: "'Let not you're heart be troubled, young sirrah, and
be not afeared of me, for lo, I was once a boye and would not for worldes destroy you're joye, believing
as I do that you have ye permission of ye olde 1p.-1_....-i who rules over ye domicile for studentss" So
saying he turned again his back and ye young ladde continued to enjoy ye show in ye ringe belowe,
laughing with particular glee at ye antics of ye monkeys, his cousins.
When that ye show was over he, in company with ye young damsel, wended his way homeward to
ye school upon ye hille. Arriving at thys place, to ye dismay of ye twain, they found that ye door
was locked, and that, ye ropen ladder havynge broken, they were locked without ye house. Some littel
useless tyme spent they in trying to find a method by which they might enter into ye house aforesaid.
Then it was that first ye maydene saw where she had tran-'r. -- .1 ye law of hei superiors, and ye
strayne, being too much for her, she broke down, and melted ye rosie young cheekes with vaine and
saltie tears. Ye young manne, seeing her to weep, sought to console her with ardent and burning
tales of ye love which he bore her, but ye maydene, being very obtuse, could not believe ye old and
famous saying, Love will always find a way," and could not perceive how thys was g-oinge to gained
for her admittance within ye house.
Finally ye young lover saw a weak window, and going up to it he smote it
with his huge and brawney fist, and then with ye pryde of a konkeror said: My
darlinge, see what your lover has done, albeit we were locked without ye house;
enter, my own tootsye-wootsye."
Thus they returned, and contrary to ye general run of cases, they were not
found oute.. Tnat Buche, ye mightie terror, knew this escapade has since become
S known to the students of ye college. So it ended; how easy for even a professor
to be blind when that ye partees are especial favourytes of ye prof.
The Florida State College has always taken pride in the uniqueness of the phenomena which she is
capable of producing, but she goes herself one better when she exhibits a dignified Senior who flunks"
because of the fact that he has too much ': Gray matter" on the brain.
One midday as I started home,
Right at the college gate
Isaw a sweet-faced, fair-haired girl,
Who seemed inclined to wait.
I glanced around to see what caused
The waiting at this place,
When through the door the Goverr or came,
With red and sheepy face.
Not knowing just exactly what
The nature of this game,
I kept my eyes and ears wide
And heard him breathe her name.
And, Hun," said he, "'you then did wait,
In answer to my demand?
Then do you give to me those books,"
He said, and stretched his hand.
Then forth they strolled, this couple gay
To dinner at her home;
" No harm," say you, why i ot permit
Them forth in bliss to roam? "
But the story as I've heard it since,
Was something in this way:
The Governor there a message sent,
And here's what he did say:
" To leave this school before I go,
You surely must not dare;"
Of the messenger who carried this
The school is now aware.
And she, the simple-minded maid,
Right truly then did wait,
And hang, 'or full three periods long,
Upon the college gate.
You've heard the adage old and true,
" Things come to him that waits;"
But that such things should come to me,
Forbid it, O ye Fates!

And Murphr(e would see the whole school in h-- fire

Long flourish the trustees, the best to be found;
I work like the mischief when they are around,
But when they are absent, to loaf by the fire
Takes up all the time of old Hezekiah.

~1~9~U- . _r--LI-.r _.._r---- -r~L
'Twas a bright day in September when Dolly arrived to enter c(,llege: the
evening sun was just setting behind the western hills in a blaze of glory as she
drove past John's house on her way to the dormitory. To a fellow of John's
blase disposition, the arrival of one girl more or less was usually a matter of
small consequence, but on this occasion something in the girl's appearance at-
Stracted and held his attention. What it was he was unable to determine but, af-
Ster thinking of her for quite a while, he determined to meet her. Accordingly
the following morning after chapel, John got one of the girls to introduce him;
and he and Dolly immediately entered upon a friendship, which gradually grew
as the first term slipped by, in John's case at least into an all consuming
and ardent passion.
For months things went well, John became a regular visitor to the dormitory
and although Dolly had admirers beyond number he felt reasonably sure of
his ground. There was however one disturbing element in John's wooing. Down at the boys dormitory
a formidable rival had arisen in the shape of the Kid, the red-headed left end of the Varsity eleven; and
iii him John found a foeman worthy of his steel. At first he paid little attention to his rival; but as
the days came and went and the young football player became more attentive, there arose in his heart
a fear lest the Kid should cut him out. John was no fool and knowing as he did the partiality with
which the sex are wont to look upon an athlete with red hair, he endeavored in every way imaginable to
rid himself of this annoying rival.
As for Dolly she was as fickle and changeable as a summers day, and with a generalship born of
long practice; kept both men on her string. First one and then the other were in favor. If the Kid
played a very brilliant game of ball against a contending team, for the time being he had things all his
own way; and on such occasions John usually sought revenge by rushing Dolly's chum. On the other
hand if John distinguished himself in a debate, the Kid was ostracised; and thus the balance of power
There was however one thing that the tactful Dolly could not do and that was
to keep her two beaux on friendly terms, and so it was that there grew between the
two men an intense and bitter rivalry which was watched with interest by the whole
Affairs were in this unsettled state when one evening John received a note from
Dolly breaking an engagement to go to the opera; and assigning as an excuse a ter-
rific headache. Usually such a note would have made little difference to John, but
on this occasion he decided that as his girl was laid up, he would also remain at
home and work up some Greek.
Now if John's knowledge of the sex had been somewhat more extended and his
conceit somewhat less, he would not have been surprised when on the following
evening he met Dolly and the Kid returning from the show. As it was he at once flew into an uncon-
trollable rage and told her that she would never see him again. To this the haughty Dolly replied by
telling him that if she ever wanted to see him, which was extremely doubtful, she would send for him,
and she added looking back at him as she strolled off "you'll come."
Weeks had rolled by and Commencment was at hand, to John however it was a Commencement so
totally different from the one he had imagined, that he found little pleasure in attending the exercises.
In fact since that eventful night when he and Dolly had quarreled, nothing of interest hod happened for
him except when Dolly jilted the Kid. This had for a time afforded him infinite pleasure and some
hope, but as Dolly remained obdurate and sent back the note he wrote her at one time. he lapsed into a
deeper despondency than ever.
It was therefore in no very pleasant frame of mind that John attended the undergraduate exercises.
Dolly of course was there, but so far as he was concerned she was as inaccessible as the stars. He
watched her talking to a smart young Freshman, and at last unable to stand it any longer he seized his
hat and was about to leave when Dolly's chum handed him the following note, hastily scribbled on
the back of a program: John: I will not be at the debate tonight. You may call at eight. Dolly.
For a moment after reading the note John was stupefied, but then as he thought how shamefully
Dolly had treated him, his heart'swelled with anger; and remarking that Dolly could wait for ever if
she wanted to he turned on his heel and left.
After the exercises Dolly received John's message, but that night she waited. And John came.

If you wish to feel your weakness
And to grow in humble meekness,
As is suited and is fitted to your station,
And to fret and fume and swcer,
Prance around and pull your hair,
Just try to learn "by heart" a forty-page
You get up at four o'mornings,
And, in spite of friendly warnings,
You awake the people far and near with shout-
Some one passing hears the noise,
Says, The old man's early at the boys,"
And it's only William practicing at "si out-
Out behind the barn or stable,
Or in room on chair or table,
May be seen a crazy pantomime at "speak-
Swinging arms enforce the phrases,
Hammering fists, the changing phases
Wrath and vengeance now on all opposed is
Oh, the sweetness of his smiling!
He-with accents smooth, beguiling
Friend and foe alike to view as he the matter
Of his discourse-rolls the thunder;
Cleaves the air and roofs asunder;
Seeming to admire his own poor, senseless
Thus he learns it. thus he talks ii;
And around his room he walks it;
And you'd think it to be perfectly bewitching.
Yet, when on the stage he rises,
Bumps of all known kinds and sizes
Set our orator at once to hopeless hitching.
" Fellow citizens, ah-ah-;h-ah,
He begins; the crowd, hah I hah hah i"
Up and down his spine the chill sensations
Trembling knees tell all his story;
Tell the knell of all his glory,
As he stumbles to his seat amidst the hawl-

iur first Game.
TO say that we were excited the day of the game would but feebly express the feeling
which raln yiot in every breast. We were excited; and what's more, if the truth be told,
we were scared. Our team was lighter than that of our opponents, and besides the
whole world, at least the whole college world knew, that there was in the Bainbridge line-
up several old University of Georgia veterans, men old and tried in the game, and bear-
ing on their muscular bodies the scars of many hard-fought battles of the gridiron.
The (lay was an ideal one, not a cloud to be s en, and at 3 o'clock the field was
crowded to its utmost capacity with an excited mob awaiting with interest the coming
struggle. Along the side lines they stretched; on the left in the center the college contingent was
grouped in a body, with colors flying and determined to see the boys through to the last. On both sides
and opposite to these was a seething mass of people eager and anxious for the fray. As a football
writer has it, It was a Roman mob-Roman in its desire for the fray and doubly Roman in consider-
ing the struggle free to all."
Promptly at 3:30 the college team trotted on ths field and was immediately followed by the Bain-
bridge boys, who came in with a rush. Georgia won the toss, and with the ball in her possession the
two teams lined up; there was a moment of anxious waiting, and then Thomas, the Georgia full-back,
sent the spheroid hurtling through the air to Florida's thirty-yard line, where Williams received it and
returned it fifteen yerds. By a rapid succession of downs the ball was advanced to tho middle of the
field, where Bradford and Murray rounded Georgia's ends in quick succession and moved the ball to her
thirty-yard line. Then followed a succession of line bucks by Provence, Williams and Buchholz; again
Ills[ll9~i~lStrrrrr ~_ _
- - I ; ~.------_C-------I*~---i~-rrlrCL-~~ r-~. ~-~
and again did they hit the Georgia line until the ball was within six inches of her goal. Here, however,
their line held; twice were the Florida backs hurled against their line, and as many times were they re-
pulsed. For the third time the teams faced each other not six inches from the coveted goal. There was
a moment of suspense as the signals rang forth, then with a rush Buchholz burst through the Georgia
tackle for a touchdown after just sixteen minutes' play.
It would be hard to imagine the scene which followed. Cheer after cheer rent the air as Provence
made his unsuccessful try for goal. Buch, Williams, Murphree and Hargrve were there yelling like
demons and doing a cakewalk to the college "Boola" that would have made Billy Kersands green with
envy. The ball was now kicked from the middle of the field, but before either side could advance it the
whistle blew for the end of the fir-t iiilf,
In the second half McCord sent the rubber flying through the air to U ....ri,'" twenty-yard line,
where Jacques received it and recovered twenty-five yards of the distance. Georgia's three downs f,;1. -
to net the necessary five yards, and the ball was given to Florida's center. Florida attempted a repeti-
tion of her first half, line bucks, and succeeded in pushing the ball to within twenty yards of the
Georgia goal, where it went over on downs.
After two unsuccessful downs, Thomas. the Georgia full-back, kicked, and Clark, who was guarding
the goal for Florida, got the ball, which went out of bounds on the forty-five-yard' line. Georgia held
the college team for three successive downs, and the ball was again turned over to her. Thomas again
punted splendidly, and Clark succeeded in rushing the ball back twenty yards before he was tackled.
Florida made a few gains, and when the ball- was given to Georgia she succeeded in making her only long
gain of the game. Jacques was given the ball for an end run, and made a gain of twenty yards before
he was stopped by Clark. Georgia now succeeded, by quick plays, in carrying the ball to Florida's fif-
teen-yard line, and things began to look' dark for the college team. Here, ln.,. r, the Florida line
held, and after an unsuccessful effort to make an opening, Hunter tried a goal from the field, which was
foiled by the quick work of Murray. Florida immediately braced up and carried the ball to the middle
of the field, when the whistle was blown for the end of the game, the score standing 5 to 0 in Florida's
Thus it was that F. S. C. played and won her first game, and great was the rejoicing therefore. Until

the wee small hours the wcods rang with her victorious songs, and staid old people, awakened from placid
dreams by the wailing of the "Boola," were glad, no doubt, that football comes but once a year.
There is evidently more than one kind of greenback, for, although the College is not noted for its
wealth, it has in the Freshman class a pretty good specimen of the long green."

If you had been a-walking 'round the c..ll. on
As I trust and hope that in a day or two perhaps
On the stair,
With winr ing air,
Could be seen a tiny Freshman and a Soph so very
Telling to his little lassie that story sweet and
You can tell when honeyed accents from his ar-
dent lips do spring,
For she leans and drinks them in like a flower the
dew of spring.
Oh, ye fates!
How he pirates!
And she waits,
While that gentle, love-lit story from his warm
and soft heart flows;
Then they part until that evening, when to town
he boldly goes,
Then at some convenient corner he and she by
chance (?) do meet;
Off they stroll, the two together, he so manly,
she so sweet.
The moments fly;
And both try
To tell the love that's overflowing in their you.l,;
and tender hearts;
Then a shadow falls across the path-the maiden
looks anl,] starts.
There stands Buch, the mighty terror, in a rage,
which is his glory,
How he came 'round there upon them is an oft'
rl,. at.-d story;
How he stared!
How he glared!
How he roared
That this nonsense he would end or in th' attempt
would die a-trying;
This was too much for the maiden, so she started
then to crying.
I :' I

Very wild and woolly looked Buch as his eyes
began to rove,
And the fire that shot from them was as lightning
flash of Jove;
And his beard,
That all feared,
As he n,.ared
Couple, seemed to make him look'much fiercer as
he towered there,
With sputtering lips, stamping feet, and wild,
And the young man turned quite pale as old Buch
began to roar,
While the maiden fainted dead away, as the earth
around he tore;
What a stew
For the two !
They did rue
That the, had been so careless as to let Buch
catch them then,
For he said, A month's confinement, sir, you
suffer in the pen."
For the moral of this story is easy to construe;
But it's only for true lovers, aid if such a one are you,
Till you know
Our common foe
Is playing tennis on the court, where he and the Profs. will play till night;
Then, dear boy, get your girl and keep her for your own delight.
Ebe Ballab of the senior.
It was a tall, grave Senior lived by the college
His home was ju-t across the road, the road not
There was a fair young Freshman, that was so
sweet and slim,
Lived at the dormitory, right opposite to him.
It was the pensive Senior that saw this lovely
Upon a moonlight evening, a-sitting in the shade;
He saw her wave her handkerchief, as much as if
I'm wide awake, young Senor,and all the Profs.
Then up arose the Senior, and to himself said he,
" I guess I'll cut this Latin out, that Freshman I
I read it in a story book, that for to see his dear
Leander crossed the Hellespont; I'll cross the
road right here."
And he has quickly left his home and crossed the
And he has clambered o'er the fence and drops
down at her feet;
Oh there were words as sweet as dew, and looks
as soft as rain,
But now they hear approaching Profs. and home
he starts again.
Out spoke the ancient pedagogue, "Oh, what was
that, my daughter?"
'Twas Lothing but a thirsty pup on nightly search
" And what is that, pray tell me, love, that climbs
the fence so fast?"
"It's nothing but the puppy I've scared away at
Out spoke the ancient pedagogue, "Now bring to
me my gun I
I'll shoot that puppy full of peas and see the
Down fell the pretty innocent, the Freshman
sweet and calm,
Her hair drooped round her pallid cheek, like sea-
weed on a clam.
Alas! for those two loving ones, she waked not from her trance,
And when he tried to jump the fence the wire it caught his pants;
Though fate was quite unkind to them, they now have better sense,
And now they hold their tete-a-tete across the college fence.
