OF MISSISSIPPI STATE COLLEGE
AT STATE COLLEGE, MISSISSIPPI
In the heart of Mississippi,
Made by none but God's own hand,
Stately in her natural splendor,
Our Alma Mater proudly stands.
It was only sixty-seven short years ago that our forefathers
erected this institution of higher learning for the furtherance of
friendship, leadership, scholarship, and fellowship. Many thou-
sands of freshmen have entered here with their hearts in their
throats and a deep respect for the paddle-swinging sopho-
mores. These same freshmen have left as men, with a feeling
of pride and an accumulation of knowledge and friends.
We shall try to give you, in this fortieth edition of the RE-
VEILLE, a view of the life and activities at State. It is our hope
that through these words and pictures we may be able to portray
to you the full meaning of, "State! I love it."
In the past, from below the Mason-Dixon line and from east and
west of the broad Mississippi, have come students to Missis-
sippi State. They have loved their fellow students and been
loved by them, and many have left to fight for the protection of
In memory of those who were called and who have given their
lives for the sake of all, we dedicate this edition of the REVEILLE.
They have made the supreme sacrifice, and to them we will be
forever indebted. The hope that they have not died in vain is
shared by all. Our everlasting desire is that we shall one day
meet again in the Heavenly Paradise beyond the skies.

Serving our state as governor, we now
have the Honorable Thomas L. Bailey.
Since entering the office, he has shown
an interest in state schools, and for
this we are grateful.
Governor Bailey is a man whom we
respect and admire. He is one whom
we feel is a competent leader and
To Governor Bailey, on behalf of
the State Students, the REVEILLE ex-
tends sincere thanks for all he has
done and is doing for Mississippi as
well as for the college.

Eleven years have now elapsed since our president, Dr. George Duke Humphrey, came to this school. Dur-
ing his time here, many students have passed over the threshold of Mississippi State and out into life to mix
and mingle with their fellow men. All of these students have left with a deep feeling for the care and
understanding which Dr. Humphrey has given them. In the future there will be thousands of other stu-
dents entering Mississippi State, and to them we wish a successful college life under his leadership.
Even with the defeat of Germany imminent, Americans realize that there is still a long hard fight ahead
until the day of Japan's unconditional surrender. But it is not too early to be looking ahead to the days of
peace. In fact, we must look ahead now to that postwar world, with all the wonders the scientists have
promised us for it, and with its economic problems and personal hardships.
We here at Mississippi State are lucky to have an opportunity now to train ourselves to do some job well,
to fit into the scheme of things after the war is over. Our only insurance for the future lies in our taking
seriously this training period, and in doing each day's work conscientiously. We must be prepared to as-
sume a definite place in the democracy our armed forces have fought so hard to preserve, and to help those
who have been less fortunate than ourselves.
Our Tomorrows depend upon what we do with our Todays.

DR. WILLIAM FLOWERS HAND
A brilliant scientist of international reputation, a successful
teacher of scintillating intellect, a modest man of sympathetic
understanding — these are all combined in the personality of
Dr. William Flowers Hand. He holds the important posi-
tions of Vice-President of Mississippi State College and Dean
of the School of Science.
His amazing feats in the chemistry lab inspire all those
who work under and with him. Dr. Hand is loved and re-
spected by all.
Irrevocably entwined in the destiny of Mississippi State
College, he has carved his own niche in the heart of each
student who knows him.
Of all the administrative officials, there is not one that oc-
cupies a warmer place in the student heart than "Mr. Ben."
All new freshmen see him first as he hands them their
registration blanks at the stage in Lee Hall. As custodian
of Mississippi State's records, he has shown an infinite capacity
for work and a thorough knowledge of the students.
Mr. Ben has become the leading source of advice to the
students with their many problems.
Mississippi State has no stronger supporter, nor more faith-
T R AT I O N .
For five years Mr. Jenkins has served as Financial Secretary
of the college.
Having been faced with the task of balancing the budget
on a wartime basis, he has responded with efficiency and tact.
During these years he has become a prominent figure on
the campus, and is respected and honored by both faculty and
Through the years State students have come to know that
only fairness will meet them in the "Major's Office."
Head of the student personnel for many years. "The
Major" has handled all disciplinary problems that have arisen,
and has gained the confidence of all the young people. He
has become one of the most beloved and admired personali-
ties on the State campus by helping the students with their
difficulties and problems. His experience in dealing with the
younger generation has caused him to understand and love
What would State be without the smiling face of "The
Dean Colmer is head of the School of Agriculture, a divi-
sion which is vital to Mississippi Agriculture. Since he
has been a member of the faculty, this department has
grown and is now recognized throughout the nation.
He has not only shown untiring and conscientious in-
terest in this field, but has worked for the betterment of
Mississippi State as well."
A true lover of State, he holds a high place in the
Ably led by Dean E. B. Colmer, the School of Agriculture comprises nine major departments. They are
General Agriculture, Agricultural Administration, Agricultural Economics, Agricultural Engineering,
Agronomy, Animal Husbantry, Dairy Husbantry, Horticulture, and Poultry Husbantry.
Course offerings in this school are designed to prepare men for the practical affairs of life, for scientific
investigation in the various departments of agriculture, for Extension work, for teachers in high schools and
colleges, for service in the United States Department of Agriculture, and for various fields of business where
an intimate knowledge of scientific agriculture will be of much value in dealing with the farmer and the
Instruction in agriculture is divided between field work, class room, and laboratory. The fields, test
plots, pastures herds and flocks of the Experiment Station provide excellent material for practical instruc-
tion. The poultry plant, greenhouses, agricultural engineering building, and the main agriculture build-
ing provide laboratory facilities. In addition to the several class rooms and laboratories in the Agricul-
tural Building, the Experiment Station building with its numerous experimental laboratories, and the meats
laboratory offers opportunity for special study and observation. The staffs of both the Experiment Sta-
tion and Extension Division of the College offer opportunities to students for broadening their professional
The School of Engineering comprises the departments of Aeronautical Engineering, Civil Engineering,
Drawing, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Mechanical Engineering. In addition, it makes use of
many other departments of the College.
All instruction in Engineering subjects is centralized in the Engineering Building, a modern, commodi-
ous, fireproof structure with several shop annexes. In this building are the offices, recitation and lecture
rooms, general departmental drawing rooms, the shops, laboratories, and museum of the School of Engi-
Since laboratory instruction is recognized as an important element of an engineering education, through-
out all courses of study in Engineering much time is included for work in laboratory, field and shops, that
practical application may go hand in hand with theory. It has been the constant aim of the School to pro-
vide complete, practical laboratory equipment, for each and every engineering department, and to keep this
equipment up to date at all times. Every effort necessary is made to train students to become independent
and efficient workers in their profession. Although this is not a trade school, shop courses are stressed and
required of the majority of engineering students. All engineering students are advised and urged to spend
their vacation periods in factories, repair shops, power and electric light plants, or with engineering corps in
the field, in order to obtain commercial experience, that they may better appreciate the relations of their
technical instruction and training to actual work.
One of the most popular schools on the campus, the school
of Engineering, is headed by a competent and sincere man,
Dean L. L. Patterson.
Since the school has taken an added significance due
to the need of engineers in the war effort, "Dean Pat"
has given his untiring effort to prepare his students to
meet the task.
He serves as head of the Department of Electrical
Engineering as well as performing his duties as dean of
In his years as dean of the School of Education,
Dean B. P. Brooks has greatly advanced the academic
standing of his department. He is now holding
down two jobs. He is not only dean of the Edu-
cational School, but also acting dean of the Busi-
He is steady and efficient as a Dean, capable and
conscientious as Director of Instruction, popular
and esteemed as a man.
The program of the School of Education is of the functional type. Careful consideration has been given to
the social and economic needs of Mississippi and to the resources and facilities at Mississippi State College
that may be used to serve these needs. This institution has facilities exceptionally well adapted to give train-
ing in the following fields: Agriculture, English, mathematics, natural science, physical education, social
studies, commercial and distributive occupations, and trades and industry. In these fields the School of
education proposes to train high school teachers who will contribute very definitely to the social and eco-
nomic welfare of the State.
Changes in modern American life are so rapid and so numerous that it is fast becoming necessary for
every person to have some systematic plan for keeping his supply of information reasonably up-to-date. In
no other way can current developments or the causes underlying them be understood; nor can the possible
choices facing American citizens be appreciated except by this means. For many years there has been a
growing demand that Mississippi State College, an institution financed by popular support and a part of the
public education system of the State, make all its re ources available not only to those privileged to reside
on its campus, but also to every Mississippi citizen interested in utilizing the services or the facilities of the
Dean of the Graduate School since its creation in
193 5, Dr. Herbert Drcnnon has succeeded in estab-
lishing a comprehensive and well-balanced curri-
culum. His increasing effort is seen in the expan-
sion of the department and his eagerness to help the
students. His innate friendliness and sympathetic
understanding of student problems has won him a
prominent place in the respect and admiration of
the State people.
Dean of Graduate School
The School of Business and Industry, organized in 19 H, is the oldest college school of business in the State
and one of the oldest in the South. It is a professional school which trains persons for positions in the fol-
lowing fields: Accounting, Banking, Commercial Aviation, Insurance, Merchandising, Production Man-
agement, Public Administration, Secretarial Science, Institutional and Industrial Management, and General
The School of Business and Industry represents an expansion of a broad program of business administra-
tion training which the divisions of Agriculture, Engineering, and Science had maintained in order to give
their students advanced knowledge in business fields. One of the major functions of the School is to con-
tinue its services to the other schools on the campus by offering work which is designed especially for
The major purpose of the School of Business and Industry, which consists of the departments of Busi-
ness Administration, Economics and Sociology, Government, and History, is to train men to assume posi-
tions of responsibility in private and public businesses and professions in the State of Mississippi.

DR. WILLIAM FLOWERS HAND
Since becoming dean of the School of Science in
1903, Dr. W. F. Hand has worked hard, both as
dean and as state chemist. His cheerie "Hi Boy" is
well known to the students of State. His delight-
ful sense of humor makes him a truly great per-
sonality who is loved and admired by all.
The School of Science has made numerous forward steps since its organization in 1903. Under the skill-
ful guidance of Dr. W. F. Hand, the school is recognized as a leader in the South.
The curriculum permits the planning of four-year courses of major study in physical science and mathe-
matics, biological science, social science, and courses to serve a definite purpose.
In addition to the courses leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science, the privilege of choice permits the
arrangement of shorter courses with special objectives, as pre-medical, pre-dental, and pre-clinical courses.
The options available in the Science School permit the planning of four-year courses of study to accord
with various student objectives, including, for examples, chemistry, chemical engineering, physics, mathe-
matics, geology, petroleum geology, petroleum engineering, geography, bacteriology, botany, zoology and
entomology, social studies, pre-medical, pre-clinical, and pre-dental preparation, etc., as well as combinations
designed for liberal culture, especially that with a background in the major sciences.

The Mister and Missus
MRS. MARY E. ALEXANDER
Some wise man once said that the three swiftest ways of communication are telegraph, telephone, and tell-
a-woman. News really travels fast these days.
Yes, boys, we now have a girls' dorm at State. It looks as if the old State has gone forever, and that the
female of the species has finally broken her way into the once male domain. Just in case you aren't aware
of the fact, Magruder Hall, once the dormitory of broken windows, pin-up pictures, and very little study-
ing, is being occupied by an array of skirts, sweaters, and beautiful faces.
Of course, we can't forget Mrs. Alec. For your information, her full name is Mrs. Mary E. Alexander.
We all like her cheery laugh and her constant reminder of "Boys, get your feet off the furniture." And
certainly you have all noticed her vigilence in keeping all the lights turned on, and her way of playing soli-
taire. It seems that she never can beat him. Seriously though, I think we all agree that she has earned the
title of "Our favorite boss."
Now, girls, don't get me wrong, we are glad to have you. Our only hope is that there will be hundreds
more just like you to come to this campus in the near future. As for my part, girls, here's to you!

The Student Council of Mississippi State College was reorganized in the spring of 1944 under the name of
the Organization of Associated Students which forms to bind together a closer union of the graduates and
undergraduates, promote school spirit, and build a bigger and better Mississippi State.
An executive council is elected each year to govern the activities of the student body.

Through the untiring efforts of the Editorial Staff and Business Staff, Mississippi State College has been
able to present the fortieth edition of The Reveille. With David Cline as editor and Mike Kerby
as business manager, student life is presented pictorially and college experiences preserved.
In the face of decreased enrollment, much credit should be given to the two staffs and their efforts.
If, as years quickly pass, memories of college life swiftly fade away, they will be revived by the pictures
in the fortieth edition of The Reveille.
VL MAROON and WHITE
Keeping the student body informed of the campus happenings and various other happenings of interest, is
The Maroon & White. This is a newspaper which is published every two weeks and is being han-
dled by the English department.
Through the constant work and faithful cooperation of a staff of students, guided by Mr. Hamlin, we
are receiving an interesting paper filled with helpful articles.

With its continued accelerated program of aca-
demic work as installed in 1942, the R. O. T. C.
and military department of Mississippi State Col-
lege has kept pace with its schedule of activity.
Commandant Small has expressed his appreciation
of the interest manifested by all students enrolled
in military training.
Wartime student shortages have caused the or-
ganization of only two companies. With capable
leaders and officers, these units have met the ordi-
nary difficulties in an efficient manner.

Under the capable leadership of its Army officers, the Mis-
sissippi State R. O. T. C. division has encouraged the fine
military training preparatory to entering the armed forces
that can be extended to the R. O. T. C. students. Twelve
members were selected out of schoolwide competition and
have engaged in many successful exhibitions.

Mississippi State is proud of the fine showing of its R. O. T. C.
Rifle Team. Not only did the team win the 1945 Hearst
trophy in competition with eight other teams from senior
units, but also a member of the team, Albert G. Hamilton,
Jr., Lambert, Mississippi, had the highest individual score of
all competing teams.
This is the first time that the Mississippi State team has
won first place in this contest, although in 193 it placed
second, and in 1942, third. Handsome trophies commemorat-
ing these successes hang in the office of Captain J. B. Small,
commandant of the R. O. T. C. at State College.
The Mississippi State Cadet Band is composed of students
enrolled in military classes at State who are musically eligible
to be members of such an organization. Mr. Henry E.
Wamsley, director, has done much to train this talented unit
and has ably prepared them to march with and play for the
R. O. T. C. Company on parade and during Federal in-
spection. Students have more than enjoyed the martial airs
rendered by the local Cadet Band at all occasions.

difficult task. They did a wonderful job, and to them we say, "Thank
Much of the Maroon's season of outstanding football is due mainly
to the splendid coaching staff. Their untiring efforts gave new
inspiration when the road ahead looked rocky indeed.
These men are Allyn McKeen, head coach; Ed Molinski, line
coach; and Dick Hitt, end coach. The Maroon's trainer is Marcus
Mapp, who was ably assisted by Andy Reese.
Mississippi State's Athletic Director, Coach C. R. "Dudy"
Noble is the most beloved character in the Maroon's
athletic history. Besides his many duties as the athletic
director, he also coaches the baseball team. Coach "Dudy"
has turned out some truly great baseball teams and has
developed some of the best players that ever graced a
Southern college diamond.
Prof. Newt Hamlin has served Mississippi State in varied capacity
since joining the English faculty in 193 0. Auditor of Student Or-
ganizations since 1938, he became Director of Athletic Publicity in
September, 1944. Out of his office flowed the publicity that projected
Mississippi State's fine 1944 football team into the national limelight,
with the eyes of the nation focused on its brilliant tailback, Thomas
The Maroons' of 1944 were off to a good start when they defeated
the Jackson Flyers' of the Jackson Army Air Base. Then on suc-
cessive week-ends they piled up an impressive string of victories over
Arkansas A & M, Louisiana State, and Kentucky. The thriller followed
when 3 0,000 fans saw Mississippi State defeat Auburn 26-21 at Legion
Field, Birmingham, Alabama.
The game was nip-and-tuck from beginning to end. Both teams
were playing outstanding football — offensive and defensive. The
93 -yard run made by "Shorty" McWilliams when he returned Auburns
second-half kickoff was one of the most spectacular plays of the game.
Outstanding linemen were Joe Saia, W. D. Garrett, Hillery Home,
Mike Kerby, Joe Dollar, and Henry Lowe. The playing of "Mutt"
Floyd, "Shorty" McWilliams, and Bill McCracken in the backfield
The Mississippi State Maroons' were ably led by Captain Hillery E. Home. Home's
dependable playing earned him a berth on the All-Southeastern Conference team and to
several mentions on All-American teams. He is truly an outstanding tackle.
A great lineman and a capable leader, Home was one of the main sparks in the
forward wall of the Maroons.

Thomas "Shorty" McWilliams can be called one of the best
tailbacks that State has ever known. Shorty, while still
a freshman, was a candidate for several All-Amcrican
teams and was voted the most valuable player on the All
"Red" Grange, an Ail-American, commented on Mc-
Williams and praised him very highly for his football
"Shorty" was injured in the Auburn game and saw very
little action against Alabama and Ole Miss. Coach Allyn
McKeen credits McWilliams as being the best all-around
back he has ever seen.

COACH DICK HIH
Coach Dick Hitt, who started with "rookies," de-
veloped them into a well-balanced outfit and gained
the respect of all the players. He made a clean
squad of the boys.
The Mississippi State Basketball team, under the tutelage of Coach
Dick Hitt, finished the season with 3 wins against 13 losses. Al-
though the material for a squad was limited there was plenty of
Lloyd C. McDougal was the sole veteran on the team, returning
from the 1943 Varsity. McDougal served as Captain of this
year's squad and proved to be a very capable leader as well as serv-
ing his position as center with outstanding ability.
At the beginning of the year, the starting five consisted of Cap-
tain McDougal, W. D. Garrett, Tom Burress, "Mutt" Floyd, and
Billy Howard who found capable substitution in Jim Walls, "Red"
Thomas and Bill Chisholm.
Mississippi College suffered a defeat when the Maroon cagers
started the season off right; but the night that followed, State was
thrown to a loss under the pressure of the Mississippi College
In the Southeastern Conference tournament, Mississippi State
was defeated by the powerful Georgia Tech squad.
Captain McDougal led the scoring of the Maroons this season.

The Interfraternity Council at Mississippi State, under the leadership of J. B. Williams, was active throughout the summer
and winter. New rush rules were formed by the council, the sports program was an important campus activity, and the
I. F. C. Dance was another social event of importance. Representation of this body is by two members from each fraternity
on the campus.
The Colonel Club is an honorary service organization which acts as the official representative of the student body, greeting
and accompanying all visitors who may come to the campus. The members are chosen from the Sophomore and Freshman
Classes, two being appointed from each fraternity and sorority on the campus and eight being selected from the non-fraternity
Some of the club's activities during the past year were conducting visitors of the Farm Bureau Convention, Home Demon-
stration Agents' Meeting and the Methodist Pastors' Convention.

make a quality point average of 2.5 the first semester, or, who, during the whole year reach that average are eligible for mem-
bership. The local chapter of this national fraternity was founded at Mississippi State in May, 193 5.

GAS COMES TO THE AID OF AMERICA'S
Long before the early morning din of the bugle in many of our modern
camps, gas is on the job supplying an even, comfortable warmth for our
soldiers, sailors and aviators; an ever plentiful hot water supply for their
personal enjoyment, and the means of preservation of good foods by gas
refrigeration and the preparation of this food into wholesome meals on
modern gas cooking equipment. Throughout each day and night gas is
called upon to do these important jobs because it is efficient and
economical, the perfect servant.
