Polk, Allen Jones

Though Allen Polk subsequently was readmitted, he was involved in additional misbehavior&#x2014;blowing a trumpet during a "spree" and answering for absent individuals at prayers&#x2014;and was dismissed again on September 20, 1842 (<xref url="">4:78, UA</xref>). Neither student received a degree. Both were members of the Dialectic Society and became planters.
