The Sophs say that the character

tors prove an inspiration to them
when called on to recite, namely:
"Mr. Gray says, and he's an author

Dean Hubbard's interest in the boys
of Meharry extends to the very last
one. No matter that may affect a
student is too small to escape his no
tice. This in large part accounts for
the wonderful success he has had in
building this great school.
At a recent meeiting the Sophs
elected the following officers for "the
