As a literate St. Mary's graduate who just began reading this site recently, may I add that I think this ad refers to a horse named "Cotton-Eyed Joe." I can't swear to this, but I think the horse's bereaved owner put this ad in the yearbook.
When I was a little girl, my father was vice-president of Memphis Steam Laundry and we used to sit on the roof to watch the Memphis Chicks play baseball. The sign was hit once by a Memphis Chick ballplayer, Ed White. My father gave him the check at one of the games. I think I still have the picture.
