Carl Pittman Lipe, LL.B.

Vance, Mississippi

Squire comes from the land of cotton blossoms and sunshine. He is just as much at home steering a mule down a cotton row, “tooting” the old bras horn in the orchestra pit, or tickling the ivories, or asking the court to dismiss a case against some knight of the “Mississippi marbles.” No man has won more favor in the hearts of the belles of the blue grass or in his fellow classmates than this gentleman from the South, “nu suh-ree.”

-The Kentuckian, 1922
