History of The Coat of Arms 




In choosing the armorial bearings for Oglethorpe University, none 
other than the famous coat of arms of the illustrious General Oglethorpe 
was adopted. The above illustration of the coat of arms of General Ogle- 
thorpe was taken from an old book in the Carnegie Library of Atlanta. The 
shield consists of a field argent, with a black chevron and three boars' heads, 
two heads above the chevron and one below. It is surmomited by a larger 
boar's head, with a green twig and tusk showing. The motto on the scroll 
beneath reads, "Nescit Cedere." 

The original coat of arms has remained unchanged, except the motto, 
"Nescit Cedere," which has been changed to, ''Manu Dei Resurrexit." 

OUR NAME 

There is a great deal of Indian story and history connected with the 
name "Yamacraw." It was at Yamacraw Bluff, near Savannah, that Gen- 
eral James Oglethorpe landed. 

Yamacraw Bluff got its name from a tribe of Indians who lived in that 
vicinity. The Indians later moved westward, and settled along the banks of 
the Chattahoochee, near the present site of Oglethorpe University.

Dedication 

This issue of the Yamacraw is dedicated to two of 
the best friends that any college in the whole wide 
world ever had — to Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Lupton of Chat- 
tanooga, Tennessee. 

At a time when there was no great financial force 
back of Oglethorpe University, when no person had 
given an unconditional gift to this institution of more 
tlian $1,000.00, Mr. and Mrs. Lupton, after hearing 
the story of its ideals from the pulpit of the First Pres- 
byterian Church of Chattanooga, made an initial gift 
of $10,000.00 cash, to which they have added from 
time to time, until there is now being erected on the 
campus of the University a building of steel and stone, 
given by them in memory of Mr. Lupton's mother. 

This monument to her is, at the same time, a monu- 
ment to the great hearted generosity of the donors, than 
whom there is not and will not ever be anyone more 
loved by the boys and girls and faculty and members 
of the Board of Founders of Oglethorpe University.

Foreword 

HERE are those who will pity naore 
than blame the Staff for this imperfect 
production, while others will lose their 
patience and condemn without qualifi- 
cation. Such adverse criticisms are fully antic- 
ipated. And yet we cheerfully go about the 
work and as cheerfully bear any amount of ob- 
jection and odium that may be heaped upon it. 

To the "Ferocious Rhetoricians'" and "Unmer- 
ciful Critics," the Staff declares they fully realize 
the many imperfections of this, the second volume 
of The Yamacraw. The editors desire that you 
recall the financial conditions and the many diffi- 
culties under which they were forced to labor. 
Therefore, whatever may be your decision when 
you have examined the book, they ask that you con- 
sider it sympathetically, with at least a suspended 
judgment, and with as little admixture of critical 
repugnance as the nature of the contents will allow. 
The Editor-in-Chief.

Oglethorpe— An Historical Sketch 

||GLETHORPE College was formally opened in 1835 under the 

direction of the Synod of Georgia. It was situated on a long, 

low ridge, called Midway, near Milledgeville. Old Oglethorpe 

j grew from a state normal training school into an historic univer- 



sity, whose renowned halls gave Georgia some of her greatest men, and 
gave the world our own Sidney Lanier. 

Princeton College had been growing in New Jersey, and was largely 
patronized by the youth of the entire nation, and especially this section of 
the South. Owing to the long distances, which must be traveled on horse- 
back, it was suggested that a college similar to Princeton be founded in the 
South. This suggestion materialized, and Oglethorpe College was the 
outcome. 

The same idea, characteristic of the New Oglethorpe, of getting men 
of the highest educational attainments to hold professorships is revealed by 
such names as the following, who were members of the Oglethorpe College 
Faculty: Joseph Le Conte, the eminent geologist; James Woodrow, uncle 
of Woodrow Wilson, Professor of Science; Samuel K. Talmadge, the bril- 
liant administrator, and many others. 

In the President's office today may be seen a crayon drawing of Sidney 
Lanier, an Oglethorpe alumnus of world-wide fame, showing him when he 
was fifteen years old, his age when he entered college. Hanging beside 
this picture is his diploma, bearing the name of the then president of Ogle- 
thorpe, Dr. Samuel K. Talmadge. We do not hesitate to say that anv col- 
lege would pay a fabulous sum for them, if the honor of having graduated 
so famous a poet could be included in the bargain. 

Shortly after the graduation of Lanier, the Northern and Southern 
States became at odds, and the deplorable Civil War followed. Lanier and 
all of his college comrades who could qualify, with the greatest number of 
the faculty, answered the call of the South. 

Being so thoroughly convinced that the South was in the right, and so 
imbued with Southern rights, Oglethorpe shut its doors; her student body 
marched away to meet their Northern brothers. Not satisfied with furnish- 
ing all of her available man power, Oglethorpe invested her funds in Con- 
federate bonds. Her beautiful main building was used as a hospital and 
barracks, and was later burned. 

An effort was made to revive the institution after the war, but the dark 
days of the reconstruction and the insolvency of the South would not permit, 
and after a couple of years the doors were closed for the second time, but 
even in so short a while she graduated some distinguished men, among them 
being a governor of Georgia. 



Oglethorpe died at Gettysburg, where she meekly bowed to the vic- 
torious armies of our brothers of the North. Old Oglethorpe lives today on 
the pages of history a stainless character, determined to let the world know 
that she was true to the principles of those who had founded her. 

It is with bowed heads that we recall those days of adversity, when 
Oglethorpe answered the call of the stricken South, shut the doors of the 
college, and gave freely of her life on the battlefields. Her sacrifices and 
sorrows are our heritage, and today, standing in the full dawn of her re- 
newed youth, we rejoice with our Alma Mater, "whose history breathes and 
burns in legend and in story." 

Under the leadership of Dr. Thornwell Jacobs, now president of Ogle- 
thorpe University, Old Oglethorpe was resurrected. Only eight years have 
elapsed since he, working with a band of indefatigable business men of At- 
lanta, began the monumental task of reviving an institution which had been 
forgotten, save to students of history. The resurrecting process was begun 
in the face of the greatest war in which man has ever been engaged. But 
in spite of financial disaster and utter turmoil, Oglethorpe has forged 
ahead, until today she is universally and favorably known. Her subscrip- 
tions have long since passed the million-dollar mark. 

The corner stone of Oglethorpe University was laid on January 21, 
1916, with her truthful and triumphal motto engraven upon it: "Manu 
Dei Resurrexit." 

As good fortune would have it, her doors opened again, this the third 
time, in September, 1916, after fifty years of rest beneath the charred mins 
of fratricidal strife. Her first magnificent building, made of granite, 
trimmed in limestone, and as near fire-proof as human skill of the twentieth 
century could make it, was ready to welcome the first class of Oglethorpians. 
A Faculty, every member of which held the highest degree the world can 
bestow in their departments, had been assembled. 

Following the first building, the Board of Directors have made plans 
for erecting fourteen more of the same type. As Dr. Jacobs has said, "All 
of this has been done in the midst of financial distress that darkened tlie 
spirit of the whole nation, and against the evil influences of a colossal war, 
which caused the very joints of the world to gape."' 

The resurrection of Oglethorpe reads like a romance. Beginning eight 
years ago with a subscription of $1,000, Oglethorpe soon enlisted the 
sj'mpathy and friendship of a great number of liberal Southern patriots. 
In the President's office may be seen today several huge volumes of names, 
each pledging sums ranging from fifty cents to $50,000. They are mem- 



iisg 



|;^^lACjf^J 



bers of the immortal Founders' Club, who have brought Oglethorpe thus 
far, and who are determined to stop only when she shall have equaled in 
true greatness any college, anywhere. All of these names are to be com- 
piled into one great book; the name of this book is to be the Founders' 
Book. 

This historical sketch could be carried much further. Half the story 
has not been told. \^'e sincerely hope that every reader of The Yamacraw, 
who has not heard the interesting and wonderful story of Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity, will some day have that privilege.

Senior Class History 



MT was in the middle of the bright sunny month of September, the 
%' year 1917, the second year of the new Oglethorpe's existence, 

.Agr that we arrived. Some came early, some came late, and some 

IkM-- later, but we all got here 



We were the second class to enter Oglethorpe after her doors were re- 
opened, but we were not second-class men by any means. In fact we made 
such an impression on the Sophomores, the only class here, that they failed 
to give us the customary chastisement, which is the sad lot of newly arrived 
college freshmen the world over. At least, that is what we thought at the 
time, but it turned out that they were just royal good fellows and all gen- 
tlemen, so thev refrained from indulging in that pastime, and simply wel- 
comed us into the fold. The way in which they greeted us at the railroad 
station and then initiated us into the mysteries of matriculation, and showed 
us over the buildings and campus, proved their gentlemanly qualities in a 
manner which we shall never forget. Our life that year was uneventful, and 
we pursued the regular college routine of classes and studies, becoming 
each day more and more aware of our ignorance and greenness. 

The following year, as sure enough Sophomores, we began those trying 
days of the Students Army Training Corps. The less said of those, the bet- 
ter, for whenever we think of them we remember what General Sherman 
said about war. True, compared to the boys "Over There," we had a cinch, 
but then the term "cinch" is wholly a comparative one. And comparing 
from the other direction we had — well, as before stated, the less said the 
better. 

On December 5th, 1918, we disbanded our litde army, which, by tlie 
way, was some three hundred strong, of which the Sophomores were nearly 
a third, a considerable increase over our entire student body of fifty odd the 
previous year. But at this time a large number of them dropped out, leav- 
ing our ranks somewhat thin. 

The remainder of this year was uneventful and came to a close on 
June 4th, 1919. 

Some few, after a short stay home, returned to Ogletliorpe to take tlie 
summer course, but the majority of us did not come back until the opening 
of school in the fall. 

About this time Oglethorpe was beginning to appear somewhat in the 
limelight in athletics, having on her football and baseball schedules such 
teams as Georgia, Tech, Vanderbilt, Sewanee, Auburn, and other large 
schools of the South. We are proud to say that our class, the Junior class 
of that year, contributed largely to Oglethorpe's athletic success. Such men 



k^B^^B^^i 



as Hope, catcher for the 1920 nine, and who was given a place on the 
mythical All-Southern; Moore, the heavy guard of the eleven; and Calm&s, 
who, the following year, was captain of the track team. 

By this time we had quite outgrown our Freshman freshness and Sopho- 
more wise-foolishness, or foolish wisdom, and were approaching the dig- 
nity of Seniors, which it would soon be our turn to take upon us. Although 
our number was small, there being only nine in the class, we shouUered 
and upheld the responsibilities and dignity of Juniors in a creditable 
manner. 

And now comes the closing chapter in our history. We are Seniors — 
that shining goal toward which we have been struggling for three long years, 
and yet short years when reckoned by the hour glass of companionship, 
is gained. While we have not the honor of being the first class to graduate 
from Oglethorpe, we are proud to be listed as one of the first Senior classes. 

Our number is increased over the class of last year, to eighteen, some 
taking summer courses and advancing to our class, others, prefering Ogle- 
thorpe to their Alma Maters, have joined our ranks. Our time is almost up. 
The passage has been fraught with some difficulty, but it has been one of 
pleasant associations and acquaintances, and one which we are loath to 
leave, but for the bigger, better things of life there must always be some 
sacrifice made and some unpleasant separation. 

To the underclassmen and our beloved faculty we extend a fond fare- 
well. To the former, we also extend the sincere wish that their sojourn in 
Oglethorpe may be as pleasant and profitable as that of the class of 1921.

Senior Class Poem 



In the onward march oj progress, 
Watch the heroes of my rhyme 

As they strive to reach the summit. 
As the dizzy heights they climb. 

By the power of human effort 
Borne upon the tvings of time. 

First, our honored secretary, 

Cain, Sylvester, young B.S., 
Comes from Norcross, State of Georgia, 

After his degree, we guess. 
He will earn it, being wary. 

He can hardly lack success. 

.4nd Professor Marquis Fielding, 

.Master of all chemistry. 
Hails from far away Atlanta, 

Comes for his B.S. degree. 
And that he ivill surely win it 

All the Seniors will agree. 

After him conies "Uncle William" 
AH the way from Forrest Park 

Seeking his degree in Commerce. 
Noiv a blind man in the dark 

Ought to sec that this boy Conine 
Certainly will make his mark. 

Could one draic a rare cartoon, Frank, 

Making it quite true to life. 
Then he ought to high-up soon rank 

To Francis Yentzer Fife 
Who attains B. Com as easy 

As Lothairo got his wife. 

Likeu.ise, Lucien Wellborn Hope 
(As the early bird in the tree 

Is the first to catch the earth worm ) 
So he'll catch the same degree. 

B. Com well becomes a catcher 
As a catcher fits Com. B. 



Stir yourselves, ye social dandies. 
Plume your wings for loftier flight. 

Watch D. Johnson, who's aspiring 
To an A.B. if he might. 

Should you win the longed-for trea3ure 
Let us share your joy. Friend Dwight. 

Now of Earnest E., from Newnan, 
What can Muses tell us, Moore 

Of ball players and stage actors 
They have often said before. 

But fhe .4.B. ball is yours now. 
Yours, its glory, value, lore. 

After So.x, the sage in Physics, 

Tom comes from the same degree. 

And Frank Sims, our honored class chief. 
Each strives an A.B. to B. 

All are worthy of such honors 
In so far as we can see. 

Time would jail to tell of Mack-Clung, 

Simp, and others fust as nice 
Whose deserts are also loond'rous. 

The three Trimbles, C. I., Price, 
Honored V. P. tiho's among 

Th' be.'t in virtue, tho' our vice. 

Greater yet than all the greatest 

Is the school we represent. 
Its professors, president. 

Haven for our storm-tossed students. 
The home of Stormy Petrels, 

Mighty boon from heaven sent. 

'Midst life's .storm and in its struggles, 

Oglethorpe, to thee, we sing. 
Mar the .'tars hear, and the sounding 
Vast aisles of the dim icoods ring 
To the songs ive raise, and blessings 
Crown the gifts of the heart we bring. 
— SIalcolm Mosteller, 

Senior Class Poet.

known in college baseball, being a member of the Mythical All-Southern nine

accomplishments, we find Dwight taking an active and enthusiastic part in

more than one heated argument as to whether or not Clearwater is really in 
the United States or not. Of course, "Mac" claims it is, but only last year 
he was caught arguing with a sign-post, so maybe he is just saying this for 
the sake of arguing. Anyway, one glance at "Mac's" marks will convince 
anyone that he has the stuff.

"Tom" 
Newnan, Ga. 
"Quiet in appearance loith motives unknown." 

This son of toil laid down the plow and said he was going to be a doctor 
because he felt sorry for sick people. So Tom left his home in Newnan and 
came to Oglethorpe in search of an education. Ernest Moore claims that 
Tom is not going to be a doctor because he is sorry for sick peop'e, but that 
because he is sorry for sick cows, and some day will be a ""cow doctor."'

graduating from Georgia Tech. He has also his degree from the .\tlanta

to take next, not being satisfied with the three he now holds. He has all

"Simp" came to us from the University of Georgia in 1919. and was therefore

This is one of the famous '"Trimble Twins" and he has the distinction of

Freshman arrives at Oglethorpe, Jesse is one of the first men he meets, as 
he is Assistant Postmaster and also Manager of the Co-op. He is an ardent

Senior Class Prophecy 

^—THl'OMETIME in early December as I was walking down Peachtree 
v^^^^^ Street, a man stepped out of a Western Union office and stopped 
^^^ me. He said he was a Hindoo traveling in this country; he had 
J^^mll lost his letters of credit and needed money to send a cablegram. 
He offered to pledge me his most precious possession for a loan. So I went 
with him to his room at the Piedmont Hotel, where he unlocked his trunk 
and took out the strangest looking Ouija board I ever saw. "That," he said, 
"has marvelous and infallible powers of pi'ophecy." 

I asked Ouija a few questions and was thunderstruck with the uncanny 
way it knew. So I readily loaned him ten dollars and he handed me the 
Ouija board to keep until his return from New Orleans. 

I brought Ouija with me to Oglethorpe and asked many more ques- 
tions. Correct every time! Then it popped into my mind that the Editor 
requested me to get out the Class Phophecy. What could be more fortunate? 
Here was the very thing! Ouija can really read the future, let him proph- 
esy. Every night from then on Ouija took me into the future years of dif- 
ferent members of the Class of 1921. 

I was told that "Daddy" Price is to become a commercial wizard and 
will realize his ambition, that is, to buy from a Scotchman and sell to a Jew 
and make a profit. 

Ouija is quite positive that Preston Seanor will live in Fayetteville, Ga., 
and raise Yates apples. 

Ouija hesitated about Frank Simpson's future, but finally managed to 
get the dope on him. He will be a doctor in a Dog and Cat Hospital. 

Ouija predicts a bright future for the Trimble twins. They will be- 
come the Chicken Kings of the South. I asked what kind of chickens, and 
Ouija said, "Feathered ones." 

When Ernest Moore was mentioned Ouija seemed to laugh and said 
he would become a Mack Sennett of the future, and that Jack Cain will be 
his star comedian and will rival the now popular Charlie Chaplin. 

Ouija was a little slow in predicting C. I. Pirkle's future, but finally 
said he would be an advance agent for a firm of undertakers. I asked Ouija 
to explain this new position my classmate was to occupy and Ouija said 
some people call them doctoi's. 

Marquis Calmes, Ouija says, will become a great astronomer and will 
write a famous book called "Stars As Seen From the Fifth Row Orchestra." 

Roy Conine is to be a great Philanthropist and will operate a cafe or 
a place for starving college boys to eat. From what Ouija says of this cafe, 
there will be some lucky college boys in the future. 



I^-75C^ACSyvW^]^ 



p;^^LACg^j| 



Harold Trimble will, if Ouija is working right tonight, become a great 
doctor and will some day discover a sure and painless cure for corns. 

When asked about Francis Fife, Ouija acted real funny and I couldn't 
understand it for awhile, but it was drawing. I followed it as well as I 
could and it was a funny picture. So Ouija must think that Francis will 
become one of the Bud Fishers of the future. 

Ouija says "Andy" Hosteller will some day become a famous pro- 
fessor of Biology and will be the head of that department at an A. and M. 
school. 

Ouija says that Frank Sims will be very successful as an editorial 
writer and will become the Editor of the Westminster Magazine. 

Ouija has a hunch that Dwight Johnson will run a second-hand furni- 
ture store on Decatur street, and will need all of his knowledge of salesman- 
ship, acquired w^iile at Oglethorpe. 

Ouija says that Tom Morgan will become an authority on Animal Hus- 
bandry and will be a professor in the Congo River Agricultural College. 

Ouija has all the dope on "Bird" Hope and predicts that he will be- 
come a great baseball authority and will become the manager of the to-be- 
famous Buckhead team, pennant winners of the "Moonshiner's League." 

I was just going to ask Ouija about the class member whose future is 
most interesting to me, when I was interrupted by a knock on my door. In 
walks my friend, the Hindoo. He returns the money and takes Ouija, which 
he will not sell at any price. After he hurries away to catch a train, I 
hasten to write down the things Ouija said.

Alma Mater 

By Thornwell Jacobs. 

Fair Alma Mater, Oglethorpe, 

Thou didst for others die. 
And now, above thy broken tomb, 

Thy God doth lift thee high! 
For He doth live in every stone 

We ivorthily have brought. 
And He doth move in every deed 

We righteously have ivrought. 

We give to thee our lives to mold 

And thou to us dost give 
Thy life, whose pulse-beat is the truth, 

Wherein we ever live. 
And as the times pass o'er our heads 

In this we shall rejoice. 
That we may never drift beyond 

The memory of thy voice. 

Fair Alma Mater, Oglethorpe, 

Thou didst for others die. 
So noiv above thy broken tomb 

Thy Lord uplifts thee high! 
To all thy past of pain and toil. 

Thy future's brilliant goal. 
We promise loyalty and love; 

We pledge thee heart and soul.

Junior Class History 



Although the Junior class is the smallest in school from a numerical 
viewpoint, having only fourteen students in the class, it has been promi- 
nently active in every phase of class competition and school activity. Par- 
ticularly has the energy of its members been manifested in the classroom 
work and upon the athletic field. 

For one reason or another the long role of Freshmen, which entered 
Oglethorpe in the fall of 1918, has fallen away until as Juniors our strength 
in numbers stands away in striking contrast to our Freshman class of three 
years ago when we were decidedly the largest class in school. 

Having graduated from the role of Freshmen and later as self-ap- 
pointed and publicly acknowledged disciplinarians to the following year's 
Freshman class, the class of '22 has accepted that place usually accorded 
Juniors: an understudy to Seniors; an unsolicited counselor of Sophomores 
and Freshmen, a belief, purposely made very evident, that we are the best 
class at Oglethorpe University and a usually successful attempt and de- 
mand to have representation in every phase of the various activities of col- 
lege life. Clifford Sims, 

Class Historian.

History of The Sophomore Class 

The Sophomore class dates from the Fall of '19. We came on the 
campus fully determined to show the Sophomores and faculty how impor- 
tant we were to the college, and that we knew about all there was to be 
learned. However, before the first night had passed, the Sophomores had 
visited the room of each Freshman, giving each a free hair cut, and apply- 
ing their belts in a manner that reminded us of our days of childhood. 
With other minor punishments we were made to keep in mind the rest of the 
year that we were Freshmen, and that we should keep our place. 

At the close of our Freshman year, at the suggestion of Dr. Jacobs, 
our class met and drew up a list of rules to be applied to the incoming 
Freshman class. These rules were submitted to the Faculty and approved 
by them. 

By this form of ruling we hoped to eliminate all forms of unnecessary 
hazing of Freshmen at Oglethorpe. However, we did not wish to let the 
new man forget that he was a Freshman. After considering the difficulty 
of this task, we believe that this system has worked very successfully. Only 
on a few occasions has it been necessary for the belt to be applied in order 
that some of the new men should not forget that they are Freshmen. We 
sincerely hope that the Sophomore classes that follow will adopt this sys- 
tem of controlling the Freshman classes. 

In athletics, members of our class have made their names prominent in 
our college history. On the successful baseball team of '20, our popular 
president. Ford Little, won a letter; also Roy Carlyle had the honor of hav- 
ing the highest batting average on the team. We are expecting still greater 
work from Roy this coming season. 

In football, Johnson, Varnedoe, Lunsford, and Reeves have done good 
work in making the past season a success. 

Our class claims the honor of being the first Freshman class at Ogle- 
thorpe to enroll girls. These members have shown their ability in the class- 
room. When the play, "The Cabinet Minister," was given by the Players 
Club, Martha Shover was a member of the cast. This year our number has 
increased, and we are expecting great work from these members of our 
class. 

With this fine material we are looking forward to the class of "23, to be 
the best that has honored the college that we love so much.

Sophomore Class Historian.

Freshman Class History 

(1920-'21.) 

As the term of Nineteen Hundred and Twenty-Twenty-one rolled 
around, Oglethorpe found the largest class in its history. 

A week was spent enjoying college life before the Sophomores gave us 
notice that we should organize within two weeks after school opened. Our 
first meeting was called to order by Dr. Libby, and after a short talk, we 
had an election of officers. These officers were: Edgar David, President; 
"Mutt"' Stephens, Vice-President; "Red" Ivy, Treasurer, and Miss Emily 
Walker, Secretary. Everyone voted that we make this class the best in past 
years and in the years to come, which we have started out to carry forth. 

We were requested by the Sophomores to give a Minstrel Show within 
two weeks after our first meeting. So, without time to give a real first-class 
show, parts were given out, and their actors proved very successful, as we 
did not have a pick from the Sophomore class. 

We have one hundred and five new students and seven coming from 
other colleges, which gives a grand total of one hundred and twelve "Rats." 
Looking at our great increase over previous years, we find a Freshman in 
nearly every college activity. There are nine men on the football squad, 
six of these being on the first eleven, and the other three first subs. These 
men which we are proud of are: Edgar David and Ed McGarity, ends; 
Adams, guard; Whitehead, center; Parr, Stephens, Ivy and Morris, back- 
fields. We know that in every sport the Freshman class will be well repre- 
sented. 

A word must be said of our Co-eds: Last year we had only three, and 
this year we have fourteen in the Freshman class alone. Five of these have 
made the highest average of the entire student body. 

The Freshmen have been very lucky this year (as we out-number the 
Sophomores two to one) and no serious accidents have occurred among 
either class. However, the reason for this is that the class of 1920-'21 
stands for good spirit, and a hearty co-operation with the Sophomore class. 

J. T. Morris, 
Freshman Historian.

It Can Be Done 

Somebody said that it couldnt be done, 

But he, ivith a chuckle, replied 
That ''maybe it couldnt," but he would be one 

Who rvouldnt say so till he'd tried. 
So he buckled right in, ivith the trace of a grin 

On his face. If he worried, he hid it. 
He started to sing as he tackled the thing 

That couldnt be done, and he did it. 

Somebody scoffed. "Oh, you'll never do that; 

At least no one has ever done it." 
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat. 

And the first thing we knew, he'd begun it; 
With the lift of his chin, and a bit of a grin, 

Without any doubting or quit it; 
He started to sing as he tackled the thing 

That couldn't be done, and he did it. 

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done. 

There are thousands to prophesy failure; 
There are thousands to point out to you, one by one. 

The dangers that wait to assail you; 
But just buckle right in with a bit of a grin. 

Then take off your coat and go to it; 
Just start in to sing as \ou tackle the thing 

That ''cannot be done,'' and you'll do it.

The Boar's Head 



HONORARY 

Established at Oglethorpe University, 1920 
Colors: Old Gold and Black Flower : Black Eyed Susan 

The Boar's Head was founded at Oglethorpe in January, 1920, and was the first 
honorary club to be organized. Only men who have been prominent and successful 
in academic life and the various college activities are eligible. Membership is also 
limited to the Junior and Senior classes. 

The title of the organization is taken from the coat of arms of Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity, a boar's head being a prominent feature of the escutcheon. The Lniversity 
armorial bearings are copied after that of General James Oglethorpe's family, for 
whom our University is named.

Fraternity History of Oglethorpe 

Dating from a time when she was considered first among the institu- 
tions of the South, Oglethorpe's fraternity history is divided into three 
periods. 

The first dates from the establishment of chapters in 1859 by Beta 
Theta Pi and Sigma Alpha Epsilon. This period came to an abrupt end in 
1861, when the loyal sons of Oglethorpe marched away to defend the 
Southland. 

The second period was a brief and unfortunate one. It dates from 
1870-73, when the University was re-established in Atlanta, only to fall in 
the general crash caused by the financial disaster of the reconstruction days. 
However, the fraternity spirit was active at this time for Kappa Alpha, 
followed by Chi Phi and Phi Delta Theta, installed chapters in the school. 

The third period dates from May 17, 1918, when Pi Kappa Phi was 
the first fraternity to install a chapter in new Oglethorpe. This was fol- 
lowed by Kappa Alpha on December 1, 1918. 

Besides Pi Kappa Phi and Kappa Alpha, there are two local clubs, 
the Alpha Lambda Tau and the Alpha Omega. All of these have pros- 
pered, and they have aided in establishing a fraternal spirit that bids fair to 
make Oglethorpe one of the most prominent fraternity schools of the South.

The Oglethorpe Players, who hold the honor of being the oldest student activity at Oglethorpe, 
have completed their most successful year. The club gained the largest membership that it has 
ever had and under the direction of a new coach, Mrs. Earl S. Jackson, the members who took 
part in the plays presented at the Atlanta Theatre received some valuable training in dramatic 
work 

The players departed from their custom of past seasons in presenting :a play by a well-known 
playwright and produced four one-act plays written by members of the club. All of the plays 
were especially good and spoke well for the ability of the youthful playwrights. 

The plays given were: "The Man From The Agency." by R. H. Armstrong: "The Thief," 
by Margaret Horton; "The Interrupted Chess Game," by P. H. Cahoon. and "Arranged By The 
Family," by B. Wooten Collier.

The Hermance Stadium Gift 

Oglethorpe was the recipient of a most liberal donation from two of 
her most ardent admirers and benefactors when she received $50,000 from 
Mr. and Mrs. Harry P. Hermance for the erection of an athletic stadium. 
This gift was first announced at the big football banquet held in December, 
1919, and which came as a surprise to everyone. Even the President knew 
nothing of what was to happen that night. Several months previous to our 
bequest, Mr. Hermance had told a group of football men that he had an 
ambition to help Oglethorpe raise the $50,000 for a stadium, but it never 
occurred to any of them that he and Mrs. Hermance would be the donors. 
The students passed resolutions requesting the Board of Directors to name 
the stadium Hermance Field in honor of the donors. 

The construction of the stadium will follow the architectural policy of 
Oglethorpe. It will be constructed of granite as are all the other buildings. 
Work on the stadium is well under way and we are hoping to open our 1921 
football schedule on Hermance Field. Ultimately we plan to build a 
stadium the equal of any in the East.

Our All- American Coach 



Oglethorpe was exceedingly fortunate in securing the sei-vices of one of the best coaches in 
America in time to start the 1920 season with a rush. When it was announced that Walter B. 
Elcock had signed to turn out the future football teams of the Petrel camp, folks of all counties, 
cities and towns pricked up their ears and stopped betting so heavily on the Petrels" opponents. 
And why? Well, in the first place Coach Elcock had been a football player, a star performer, 
in the days of his youth. In fact he had been such a good player that he had been called ""the 
most aggressive man who ever played on a Dartmouth team." and before he left Dartmouth he 
had made the ""All-American" varsity. In the second place, the fans marveled because he had 
coached at Washington and Lee a few years ago and caused W. and L. to turn out reputable 
teams. And in the third place. Coach Elcock came to us with a reputation that would make 
anyone prick up their ears, a reputation gained only by his wonderful ability, not only as a 
player and lover of ihe game, but also as a coach. It is true that Coach Elcock's 1920 Petrels 
lost several games, one or two of whicli should have been won, but that was due to the fact that 
it was a new coach trying to mold a team from inexperienced material. This department of the 
Yamacraw predicts that within five years, provided a little support is given. Coach Elcock will 
turn out a team that will not only defeat any other team in the South but will also be able to 
stand against, and more than likely defeat, any team in our country. This isn't just talk to fill 
up space — it is straight dope in the form of a conservative prediction.

Sportsmanly Speaking 



This department, by way of recognition to one of the University's prominent sportsmen, sug- 
gests that the name of Frank B. Anderson be listed among the very important words in Mr. 
Webster's next dictionary with a definition which only Mr. Webster himself can give. 

Frank B. Anderson needs no introduction to anyone who has ever been in any way asso- 
ciated with Oglethorpe. He has done everything except fill the President's chair and we believe 
that if Oglethorpe needed him he could even do that. Coach Anderson, we just must call him 
Coach, has been football coach, baseball coach, basket-ball coach, member of the faculty, physical 
director, registrar and now he is Athletic Director and Head Coach as well as the best baseball 
coach a team could have. He is directly responsible for the remarkable, though short, athletic 
career of Oglethorpe, for he came to us when it seemed as impossible to turn out any kind of 
team as it is for a food-chopper to turn cracked ice into young elephants. But he stuck with us. 
always smiling assuringly while tugging with his giant task, until our teams became recognized 
as the kind which hold the respect of the greatest sportsmen. Realizing at the close of the 1919 
season that it was too much for him to continue as football coach and do justicel to his other 
jobs at the same time, he suggested that the best football coach that could be found running 
around loose be captured and domesticated at Hermance Field. Coach Anderson did more than 
suggest — he captured, and. with the able assistance of Dr. Jacobs, tamed one of the best coaches 
of football in the country, Walter B. Elcock. 

When Coach Anderson came to us he owed us nothing but just the same he gave us all he 
had and is still giving. Now Oglethorpe owes him an unaccountable amount and will always 
find pleasure in "paying off" as the opportunities come. "Frank B. Anderson, a loyal sportsman, 
loved and respected by all true sportsmen." is our simple definition. 



|;^MA5i^^i| 





Coach Walter B. Elcock 
When Dr. Jacobs ;ind Coach Anderson realized that 
Oglethorpe was destined to become one of the great- 
est athletic schools in the South, they immediately 
realized also the necessity of an expert footl)ail 
coach. They set to work, and in the end got the 
best football coach in the country — \Yalter B. El- 
cock. With the green material supplied, he worked 
with the boys until he made a very formidable team. 
When it was announced at the close of the football 
season that Coach Elcock would be with us for at 
least another year, the entire student body greeted 
this news witli great enthusiasm. 

Captain Johnny Knox 

At the close of the into season the members of the 
team gathered in the smoking compartment of the 
train (which happened to be a local from (Jaines- 
rille. Fla.. to .TacUsonville) and elected their captain 
for the 1020 season, who was none other than 
•Johnny Knox, halfback and star punter-dropkicker. 
At the cmd of the 1020 season the sport scribi's of 
the South got around a table and swore off all drinks 
(except Welch's) for the purpose of selecting the all- 
southern team. In spite of the fact that the south 
was very well stocked with star halfbacks Johnny 
Knox was among the group of serious contenders. 
Several football followers of importance picked 
Johnny on their team, but the scribes had to leave 
him off their "varsity" all-southern because others 
had had the opportunity to show a greater variety 
of wares. But Johnny is star stuff and everybody in 
the Petrel camp knows it. This is proven bv " the 
fact that when the 1020 varsity got ready to elect the 
1021 captain they chose Johnny Knox to succeed 
himself. This is a rather unusual procedure, for 
there are few football stars of ail-American calibre 
who have been elected to lead their teams a second 
season. If Johnny has a fairly good team to run 
with next season, he will not only make one of the 
best captains Oglethorpe has had but will also make 
all-southern unanimously. 

Manager Joel C'Daddf) Price 

Sometimes it Is the fortunate fate of a fellow to be 
elected manager of some kind of team when he goes 
off to college. Sometimes he is elected to manage a 
poor team, sometimes a meodiocre team and some- 
times he is lucky enough to be elected manager of a 
real good team. Thus young candidates for the 
Freshman class acquire an ambition to become a 
manager of a good team, which is indeed a worthy 
ambition, even for a Sophomore. 

A certain young lad from Ixicust Grove Institute 
once acquired such an ambition and when he went to 
college he carrired it with him. Naturally his am- 
bition wasn't realized the first year, nor the second, 
nor the third, but he was so interested in athletic 
doings around the camp that he .iust nosed in and 
helped out the best he could. Although he wasn't 
built for a football player, he even donned a head- 
gear and other protection and helped Coach Ander- 
son turn out a good varsity in 1010 by playing quar- 
terback on the scrub team (provided he was able to 
make his slender legs carry him to the field I. It 
looked like he was in for a grand disappointment in 
realizing his ambition but he .lust naturally seemed 
to forget his ambition and kept on rendering his 
services in one form or another. When time came 
to elect a football manager this lad, by now a serene 
Senior, got the Job. When time came to elect a base- 
ball manager several famous men were nominated, 
but the little lad, now a tall man, from Locust 
Grove, copped the honor. 

Well, "Paddy" Price proved worthy of his trust 
for he made such a good football-baseball manager 
that he is herewith entered as first-class matter as 
"all-time all-American diamond-grid manager."

Foot Ball Games 

OGLETHORPE VS. DAHLONEGA 

This game opened the season upon the Petrels' practice field with the visitors 
fighting bravely against overwhelming defeat. But just the same, Coach Elcock's 
Stormy Petrels brought home the promised bacon to the lullaby of 63 to 0. Coach 
Elcock gave nearly every man able to wear a headgear a chance to shine in this 
game, hoping that from an over-supply of green material he might pick a team 
which would be able to brave the winds of Tech's terrible Tornado on Grant Field 
the following Saturday. Judging by the way the plucky Dahlonegans were routed 
one would have contracted a deep sympathy for any team which could be so bold 
as to face the Petrels. 

TECH VS. OGLETHORPE 

On October 2, 1920, Captain Johnny Knox, amid the shouts, applause, squeak- 
ing of sirens, warbles of excited sparrows and invisible noises of aeroplanes over- 
head and miles out of sight, proudly trotted out upon Grant Field leading his team 
to the visitors' bench, there to await the "ding-ding" blast of the referee's whistle. 
It was an historic moment for it was to be the first meeting of the young Petrel 
warriors, upon the gridiron, with Tech's widely heralded Tornado. The plucky 
Petrels dared, in their fourth season of existence, to face one of the best teams in 
the country; in fact they dared to enter the fray with the determination of defeating 
their opponents! 

But alas! The score spelled 55 to in favor of the Techsters at the close of 
the game. It seemed certain that the Petrels had been annihilated to the point where 
they would never again be able to hold their chins at a respectable angle. 

When we reflect, we realize that that same little team which had won the small- 
est end of the score was one of the few teams of history that, in its infancy, had not 
only dared to face one of the strongest teams in the country but had alsoi actually 
fought its way to striking distance of the goal only to fail to carry the ball across 
because of a mistake due to inexperience. During one quarter of the game the 
Petrels played the kind of football their coach had been trying during the past few 
weeks to get them to play and as a result they out-fought their heavier opponents 
and put the ball on Tech's four-yard line. No other southern team can boast of 
having come so close to crossing Tech's goal line during the season. 

OGLETHORPE VS. UNIVERSITY OF CHATTANOOGA 

Since we have said, and intend saying more, nice things about the work of the 
Petrels during the 1920 season we can afford to pause and hand them a tiny, uncom- 
plimentary bouquet of garlic fragrance. With all due respect to the Chattanooga 
team we must say that, for a short while at least, we were absolutely sore toward 
the Petrels because they didn't lick the stuffing out of the Tennessee eleven. 

After having arrived in Chattanooga and having had a good night's rest along 
with two or three very welcome meals, the Petrels took the field against their op- 
ponents, doped to win by a large majority. In less than five minutes the spectators 
learned in the art of football knew that soniethina; was wrong: that the Petrels were 



i;^MACi^^j| 



not playing like the team they had been cracked up to be. Before this thought had 
completely whiffed through their brains, the said spectators saw one of the 'iNooga 
backs, running like a blue streak, cross the Petrels' goal line for a touchdown. 

Dear reader, we haven't the heart to cause you mental agony, as we were 
caused to have on that day, by dragging you through the details of the game. 
Suffice it to say that it wasn't because the Petrels were not a good team that the 
score stood a 14 to 14 tie at the end of the game; nor was it because the 'Noogans 
were superior to our Petrels, for they weren't. It was just a beyond-remedying case 
of over-confidence with a lack of punch that it takes to win football games. We 
were ashamed of the Petrels but have since, realizing the truth, forgiven them. 

SEWANEE VS. OGLETHORPE 

Coach Elcock put his men through all kinds of stiff practice in preparation for 
this game. It seemed that this would be the chance to stage a grand come-back and 
regain all the prestige which might have been lost in Chattanooga. 

Well, the come-back was staged and right before the eyes of one of the most 
enthusiastic gatherings ever parked at Ponce de Leon Park to support the home- 
town talent. Our Oglethorpe Woman's Board and other staunch friends taxed the 
strength of the grandstand as well as their vocal chords trying to make the team 
take courage and down the threatening Tigers. 

After the game was all over our esteemed brother in printer's ink and dirtv 
shirt sleeves, Mr. 0. B. Keeler of The Atlanta Journal, hit the tack on its cranium 
when he suggested that Coach Elcock line his varsity against the scrubs and let them 
scrimmage about a half hour before sending them into a game. It certainly seemed 
that the Petrels would have been victorious had Mr. Keeler's system been tried be- 
fore this game for the Petrels didn't begin to stage their come-back until the last 
half of the game, they apparently having just begun to get warmed up after wearing 
down the energy of their opponents. Sewanee scored 21 points with practically no 
opposition. Then all of a sudden the Petrels recalled that they were expected to 
stage a come-back and immediately they began to advance the ball toward the goal 
of their run-down opponents. At the end of the game the Petrels received enough 
praise to offset the criticism received in the first half, even though the score was 
21 to 14 in favor of Sewanee. 

OGLETHORPE VS. WOFFORD 

After tasting defeat in each of the last two games it was up to the Petrels to 
either win a game or move out and rent their apartments the remainder of their 
schedule to someone else. Saturday, the day for athletic events, was at hand — and 
so was the team representing Wofford College. The Woffordites had a supply of 
tough-looking beef that would throw a scare into the heart of Cyclops. Naturally 
the Petrels, being only human, were affected, psychologically, by the apparent fero- 
ciousness of their opponents. At least they seemed to be, for long after the game 
had started the spectators discovered that Wofford's tough-looking warriors, how- 
ever tough they might have been, were green and seemingly untrained in football 
tactics of the higher order, and yet the stormy Petrels were out there on the field 
neither advancing nor retreating. However, before the first half was over Captain 
Knox, true to his old-time form, grabbed the ball and when next seen he was at the 



i^^AC^^^ 



m 



other end of the field having a moment's rest across his opponents' goal-line. He 
had gone through the entire Wofford team almost unaided. 

Between the halves Dr. Jacobs asked Johnny if he would make another touch- 
down for our beloved friend, Mr. Harry Hermance, and Johnny grinned and nodded 
his head. When a fellow makes a promise with a friendly grin decorating his face, 
lookout! Johnny Knox made the touchdown for Mr. Hermance without any aid 
after charging off-tackle and side-stepping the Wofford backs, thus saving the day 
for the Petrels by the score of 14 to 0. 

FURMAN VS. OGLETHORPE 

In 1919 the Purple Hurricane of Furman University, situated in Greenville, 
S. C.. defeated the Petrels by the score of 14 to 7 or 14 to or some such score 
which didn't show that the Furmanites were vastly superior to the Petrels. The 
1919 Petrel squad took this defeat "cum grano salis'' and resolved to square the 
matter bv overwhelmingly defeating the Furmanites in 1920. 

The fans who remember the details given out concerning the game between 
Furman and Georgia will recall that the Furman team came near besting the Bull 
Dogs but finally gave way to the ferocious snapping and tugging of the Bull 
Dogs and were defeated by the small score of 7 to 0. A person in a reasonable state 
of mind would have been sane enough to have suspected that the Furman aggrega- 
tion was a tip-top team even if they were coached by a man who had never played 
football. For had not Georgia, just the week before, defeated the reputable Auburn 
Tigers? But no one is in a reasonable state of mind during football season: every- 
body runs around doping this game or that and as a result a whole lot of dope is 
upset and everybody wonders why fate is so cruel as to upset the dope. 

Thus, when Georgia defeated Furman by such a small score, the dope coming 
from far and wide was that the result of the game was not because of the strength 
of Furman but was because Georgia was too over-confident and besides didn't care 
particularly to pile up a mountainous score. So the Petrels packed up their as-you- 
like-'ems and grabbed a caboose for Greenville, expecting to return with a victory 
without the use of so much as a shoulder-pad or headgear. 

Well, the Petrels returned but it was quite evident to the home-town bunch that 
instead of a victory, they had received all that a team can receive in the way of de- 
feat. But in spite of their defeat the Petrels brought many words of praise for the 
Furman team and students for the sportsmanlike manner in which they had been 
treated while in Greenville, in spite of the fact that Furman took the game by the 
score of 42 to 3. The Petrels are still wondering how Georgia ever managed to pile 
up such a score against Furman! 

OGLETHORPE VS. MERCER 

At the beginning of the season it was rumored that Mercer would have one of 
the best teams it had ever turned out for the great Josh Cody, former \ andv star, 
was to be the coach. In 1919 the Petrels defeated Mercer on Grant Field 72 to 0. 
In 1920 the Petrels went to Macon and defeated Mercer 42 to 0. which shows that 
Coach Cody succeeded in turning out a team somewhat better than the 1919 team. 
But the Petrels were all set and playing real football, else the score might not have 
been so large. After the encounter with Furman it was up to them to show- how 
much they appreciated their great coach and his patient work in trying to develop 



lis 



p;^@^^^^j| 



them into a real team. Well, they did, and everybody is satisfied with their showing 
in Macon. They fought hard and kept their wits where wits should be kept and 
used their wits as wits should be used — and every man of them proved that there 
were plenty of "guts" in the old Petrel camp! 

OGLETHORPE VS. UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 

On Thanksgiving Day, 1919, the Petrels met the Florida team on the 'Gator 
Field in Gainesville, Fla. On Thanksgiving Day, 1920, the Petrels met the Florida 
team at Columbus, Ga. On the former date the Petrels, at the beginning of the 
game, were going strong and it looked like the Florida team was in for a good trim- 
ming. The Petrels scored a touchdown in the first half but the sun, being an old- 
fashioned Florida sun, was hot and as a result the Petrels, who had been accus- 
tomed to playing in a much cooler climate, seemed to lose their stickability. When 
the game closed Florida was leading 14 to 7. Remember, now, this was in 1919. 

The Petrels were destined to change the tune on the famous Turkey day of 
1920. "How come?" you ask. Wait'nlTltellya! 

A few days before the day of the game someone suggested that everybody con- 
nected with Oglethorpe and possessing a gasbuggy, trot said vehicle out and take 
a trip to Columbus, Ga., and at the same time carry a load of the members of the 
band. And enough gasbuggies were trotted out from their stables to carry the 
whole gang of musicians. Well, the band arrived ahead of the team. When the 
team arrived, the band was at the depot ripping the roof off to the tune of "Hail, 
hail, the gang's all here!" And that wasn't all, neither, no siree! That little ole 
band painted the town of Columbus all appropriate colors and kept everybody in 
town awake, including the night watchman and police force. Next morning the en- 
tire bunch of Oglethorpians, team, band and all marched to the First Presbyterian 
Church to take part in the Thanksgiving service. This was the church which several 
years before, when there was no Oglethorpe, had given its contribution toward the 
founding of Oglethorpe; this was the church which had been attended by the mother 
of one of the boys on the team when she was but a little girl. At the close of the 
service the Oglethorpe band arose, and, as if in grateful appreciation, rendered a 
beautiful choral which would have pleased anyone. Somehow it seemed that a 
team, composed of REAL men, would be sure to lick the stuffing out of any team 
after this service. And, believe me. Bud, they did! Florida was annihilated to the 
tune of — or rather the sweet lullaby of — 21 to ZERO!

When Bob Nicholes played the last game of the 
1919 season in Gainesville. Gla., he thought he was 
playing his last for his Alma Mater, for he was 
then a Senior. But when practice began last Sep- 
tember. Bob enrolled for graduate work and came 
on down to the practice field. Bob played a mighty 
good game last year and will be sorely needed at 
right tackle next season, but his days as a Petrel 
are over, for he is now a student at Princeton and is 
doing very well. 

Bob is 21 and weighs 195. 



Frank Simpson filled the position of left tackle 
during the past season. This was Frank's first sea- 
son on an Oglethorpe football team and his last, 
for he graduates this year, but he will be remem- 
bered for his faithful service. Because of his huge 
size and strength, Frank was looked upon by his 
opponents as a steam roller. 

Frank is 22 and weighs 215. 



Tom Bartenfeld came along in good time and 
made the center berth his first year in college. At 
first it was thought Tom would make a guard or 
tackle but with a bit of coaching he took to center 
like a cow' takes to fodder and made a mighty im- 
portant cog in the Petrel machine. 

Tom is 21 and weighs 190. 



Ernest Moore played his first year on the varsity 
and it will probably be his last year, for he also 
graduates this year. But if he should return next 
year he will keep the sport scribes writing black 
type headlines about him. His work at guard last 
season proved that he is capable of doing great 
work on the grid. 

Ernest is 20 and weighs 170. 



|;^^^^§^^ 



Roy ("Dizzy") Carlyle never was much of a foot- 
ball fan until last season when Coach Elcock 
coaxed and coached him. He turned out to be not 
only the wildest fan in the South, but one of the 
"fightingest" players in this territory. At guard 
position he was ever able to block and charge 
through his mightiest opponents. 

Roy is 20 and weighs 195. 



'^i$mm^: 



Wayne Johnson played his second year on the 
varsity last season and showed great improvement 
over his work of the preceding season. Wayne is 
of the tall and rangy type and has sufficient weight 
with it to make him one of the best ends Oglethorpe 
has had. Coach Elcock thinks he should make all- 
southern next season. 

Wayne is 22 and weighs 178. 






m^^ 



Ed McGarity held down one of the ends in most 
of the games and did it well. He was a Freshman, 
formerly of Boys' High, but he played like a veteran. 
We would like for him to come back next year but 
it is doubtful as he received a knockout from Cupid 
shortly after the season was over and will probably 
not care so much for football hereafter. 

Ed is 21 and weighs 148.

John A. Varnadoe ("Geechie") came sailing in 
from Savannah High and kept fighting until he made 
varsity quarterback. "Geecbie"' is one of the wildest 
fighters ever seen in the Petrel camp on defense 
for he always plunges into the fray head foremost 
and grabs all the ankles he can get his paws on. 
He should make a mighty steady man at quarter 
next season. 

"Geecbie" is 20 and weighs 155.

At the first of the season the position of fullback 
%vas in a gloomy state, but before long Ed Pan- 
took a try at it and stuck. Along toward the last 
of the season Ed put on more steam and turned 
out to be a terror in the hearts of his opponents 
for he bucked a line like a shrapnel. Ed did fine 
work for his first year at it and if he comes back 
next year he will not only have fullback cinched, 
but will make the fans prick up their ears. 

Ed is 22 and weighs 165. 



Carlton ("Red") I'vey entered camp with a string 
of medals won at track meets for being a fast man, 
but because of his small size it was thought he 
would not make a football player. In spite of his 
greenness, ""Red" proved he could play football and 
especially on defensive did he show that he knew 
how to back up a line. 

Ivey is 20 and weighs 145. 



Hugh Turner finished his third season as half- 
back last Thanksgiving Day. Hugh is small of 
stature but he is all there, especially as a defense 
man. Hugh should show "em next year that Tech 
High products can play big-time football as well as 
any of "em. 

Hugh is 21 and weighs 148. 



Ed David prepped at Locust Grove Institute in his 
young days and came to Oglethorpe to shine in the 
big light. At the beginning of the season he was 
used in the backfield but Coach soon switched him 
to end. where he did so well that he finishhed the 
season in that position. Some folks say Ed is get- 
ting old. but in spite of this he is handsome and 
retains his ability to play football like a youngster. 

Ed is 22 and weichs 145. 






Ralph Reeves, a veteran of two seasons, continued 
to be a dependable end last season and in several 
games, especially the Thanksgiving game, he pleased 
the fans and students, as well as his teammates, by 
being ever able to save the day in the pinches. 
Ralph was handicapped by injuries a great part of 
the season but he did better than the average 
player, in spite of injuries. 

Ralph is 22 and weighs 148. 



Jake Morris is another product of Boys" High who 
made his letter in his Freshman year. Jake played 
in most of the games at quarterback and with a 
little more experience should make a mighty good 
field general. 

Jake is 21 and weighs 160. 




R. W. f'Mutt") Stephens was discovered in the 
game with Dahlonega, but before that game was 
over he was so badly injured that he was unable to 
get back into the harness for a few days. Finally 
he recovered enough to appear in the line-up. and 
in more than one game he thrilled spectators with 
his jam-up playing. "Mutt" is a Freshman also, 
but it is a cinch that he will be a star performer 
before his Senior year. 

"Mutt" is 19 and weighs 16.5. 



Oscar Lunsford came down from Dahlonega and 
began trying out for an end. but because of his 
size and weight he was soon switched to tackle 
where he did so well in several games that he won 
his letter. 

Oscar is 21 and goes to bed weighing 180.

The editor of this department, ever willing to 
have his picture "took." admits having made his 
letter last season as a tackle. He admits that he 
isn't a star football player, for he never tried to play 
football until he came to Oglethorpe, but he does 
hold the record of having gone through the entire 
1920 season without being late to or missing a single 
practice. Likewise in 1919 he was on time at every 
practice except one and that was due to sickness. 

Ted is 21 and weighs 180 without his typewriter.

"Hi 




H. F. C'Peck'") Whitehead, a Freshman, turned 
out to be a pretty good center before the season 
was over. When Barlenfeld was injured or given 
a rest, "Peck" was always sent in as snapperback. 
"Peck" is built for a center and with his natural 
ability and a little more experience should be a 
valuable man next season. 

"Peck" is 20 years old and weighs 180. 



Ben Adams is another product of the Locust 
Grove Institute, made famous by our All-.\merican 
manager. "Daddy" Price. Ben doesn't look so ter- 
ribly ferocious but in the game with Sewanee he 
ran into a halfback so hard that Sewanee is still 
wondering why they have stone walls on Ponce de 
Leon field. Ben is good guard material. 

Ben is 21 years of age and weighs 175 in his 
unmentionables. 



Oscar C. Walton is one of Oglethorpe's best 
known athletes. "Battle Ax." as he is affectionately 
known by his comrades, played in the line during 
the seasons of '19 and "20. and although he did not 
make his letter during the past season, he played 
in six of the most important games. 

"Battle" is 21 years old. weighs 190. and calls

Coach Frank B. Anderson 

Here is a man, known and loved by the entire 
student body, who has coached the Petrels since the 
day Oglethorpe University opened its doors. He 
has coached every team that Oglethorpe has ever put 
out. besides holding down the office of Registrar. 
When it comes to baseball, Frank Anderson is 
recognized throughout this section as one of the 
very best — in our opinion, he ranks second to none 
and has certainly done his bit towards making 
baseball a success at Oglethorpe. 



Captain Roy Carlyle 

Last year, 1919-1920, a Freshman blew into Ogle- 
thorpe and from his size, it looked as if he could 
buck any football line in the country, but he waited 
until baseball season to show what he could do. He 
easily made a berth in the outer garden, and at the 
close of the season it was found that he had led 
his team-mates at the bat. his average being .415. 
He displayed his ability so well that at the close 
of the season he was chosen by his team-mates to 
be their leader in 1920-1921, and under his capable 
direction, the Petrels have had the most successful 
season of their short existence in the athletic world. 




Manager Joel H. Price 

This is our famous "All-Time. Ail-American 
gridiron-diamond manager" that you have heard so 
much about — "Daddy" Price. "Dad" has proved bis 
ability so well — he can manage anything from 
a co-operative store on up to a university — that he 
was elected baseball and football manager for 1920- 
1921. He has performed these duties to a queen's 
taste. '"Daddy" graduates this year, and it is very- 
doubtful if there will be a man who can fill his 
slioes and perform the tasks" he has done, in many, 
manv vears to come. 



s^ 



P;^^AC^^J 



Captain Roy ("■Dizzy") Carlyle was such a good 
baseball player that after his first year on the team 
his mates chose him to lead them, so great was 
their confidence in him and in his ability. Roy is 
a little wonder on fielding but when it comes to 
swinging a bat he uses his great strength to good 
advantage, often getting three-baggers and once in 
a while driving out a circuit drive. 








r^^- 



Jules Price is playing his third season with the 
Petrels and is a mighty handy young man to have 
around the camp. Jules is generally used as utility 
and can fill almost any position but he does his 
best work at short and second base.

'•mf*^ 



This is Thomas Jones. Doesn"t he look like a 
big leaguer? In spite of the fact that he is just a 
Freshman he is showing the goods and before his 
career is ended as a Petrel he should be known as 
one of the hardest hitting outfielders in this section. 



Ed David, the Freshman wonder on last season's 
grid squad, is also one of our best bets on the base- 
ball squad. Ed looks mighty good at left field and 
when he steps up to the bat he generally gets a 
good hit and knows how to run the bases.

L. N. C'Big Chief I Turk hurls his last game 
for the Petrel nine this season; the question natur- 
ally follows, "Who"ll take his place on the mound?" 
At present we feel very sure that it will be many 
a moon before Oglethorpe will be fortunate enough 
to secure another pitcher as dependable as Turk. 
Besides being one of the best pitchers who has ever 
made all-southern, Turk is one of the best students 
who ever entered a college. Turk takes his M.A. 
degree this year. 



Lucien Hope will be lost by graduation this year,, 
and, like his mate. Turk, he will be missed more 
than words can express, for he is undoubtedly the 
best catcher who has performed on a southern col- 
lege team in many years. Lucien was with our 
first team but when the war began he went to 
France and after doing his bit he returned to his 
old Alma Mater. As our esteemed contemporary. 
H. C. Witwer, of Collier's Weekly, says, it was a 
case of '"From Baseball to Boches" with a return 
to baseball added. Good luck, Lucien. 



John ("Foxy") Knox, our famous little halfback 
during football season, is also one of the main cogs 
in our baseball machine. John played first base last 
season but Coach Anderson shifted him to second 
and to the outfield this year. John is a consistent 
man, always fielding well and ever ready to give 
the apple a long drive. 



Oscar ("Battle Axe") Walton seems to have the 
position of third sacker cinched as long as he is 
willing to play it. Besides being a good fielder and 
dependable batsman. Oscar keeps the whole team 
in tune by his encouraging line of talk during a 
game. 



fe^S^cg^jl 



m 



"Brindle" Thaxton showed promise of making the 
football team last season, but he sustained a broken 
shoulder which ended it all. But by baseball sea- 
son his shoulder had healed. Thaxton looks mighty 
good in the outfield and shows promise of being 
one of our heaviest hitters. 



".Take" Morris created a sensation in the prep 
league last season by his brilliant work on the 
mound for Boys' High. It looks like he will be 
quite a sensation in college circles after another sea- 
son's work under the Petrel banner, for he is hurl- 
ing unusually good college ball already. 



Frank Simpson is so large that it seems he would 
make an excellent backstop. But on the contrary 
be is first baseman and plays his position perfectly. 
We'll never have another first baseman who can 
hold down this job better than Frank. Besides be- 
ing a good first sacker, Frank can step in and play 
the catcher's position as well as the best of them. 
Frank caught through a season on Georgia's varsity 
before coming to Oglethorpe. Frank will be missed 
next season, for he also graduates this year. 







f , *^-., 



Clifford ("Kid") Sims was the star hurler of the 
Petrel nine way back in '17 but soon after the sea- 
son was over, be answered the call of his country 
and served eighteen months in France. After being 
discharged, he again entered Oglethorpe, and was 
a star performer in the outer gardens. This season 
the '"ole man" seems to have gotten his batting eye 
in perfect condition and is the most dependable and 
brainiest lead-off man on the Petrel squad. 




Lamar ("Rabbi") Cooper is little brother to one 
of the best tackles who ever played on our football 
team. But it seems that size doesn't keep a man 
from being a good baseballer. for "Rabbi" is play- 
ing his second season as a varsity man. "Rabbi"' 
generally holds down second base and covers his 
ground like a spring chicken, in spite of the fact 
that he appears to be growing bald. 



ii 



-^■- 



1 — ^ 




Herman Hafele ("Hack") is another Freshman 
wonder, for he just stepped right into the camp, 
announced that he would play short-stop and pro- 
ceeded to do so in grand style. Hafele has already 
shown that he is a good short-stop and will in time 
to come make one of the best we"ve ever had. He 
can bat as well as he can play his position, so that's 
'nuff said. 



It 



■4- 



Ford Little pitched some mighty good games for 
us last year and it looks like he will do even better 
this season. Of course he hasn't made the record 
that some of the star twirlers have made but he is 
dependable and is learning right along. Ford has 
two more years on our staff so it seems likely that 
he will yet fan out his share of opponents. 



Wurley Adams breezed in rather late from Nor- 
cross. but in spite of his lateness he showed us 
that he has the stuff of a good pitcher. Adams, 
now a Freshman, has shown up so well that it is 
quite likely that he will twirl his share of this sea- 
son's games.

Some Nut 
When you've bats in your belfrey that flut, 
When your comprenez-vous rope is cut; 
When you've nobody home 
In the top of your dome 
Then your head's not a head — it's a nut.

"Well, then," he pouted, "if that's the way you feel about it, get off

A girl will listen to a parlor story. 
If it is nice, she is bored by it. 
If it is snappy, she is amused by it. 
If it is spicy, she is content with it. 
If it is rare, she will laugh at it. 
If it is raw, she ivill repeat it.

College Yells 
"So you graduated from a barber college? What is your yell?" 
"Cut his lip, cut his jaw, leave his face, raw, raw, raw." 

A woman is as old as she looks — a man is not old until he stops 

looking.

Any Co-ed 

If you hold her hand, she may think you foolish. 

If you don't, she will wonder why. 

If you kiss her, she may think you a cad. 

If you don't, she may think you slow. 

If you offer her a cigarette, she may be offended. 

If you don't, she may think you consider her puritanical. 

If you tell her of women you've met, she may think you a rounder. 

If you don't, she may think you've had no experience. 

If you tell her she is the first girl you have loved, she may think you a 
liar. 

If you tell her that slie is the first you have kissed, she will know 
you lie. 

NOW, WHAT IN THE HELL IS A FELLOW TO DO? 

A man marries a woman when he is too yoinig to know or too old to 
care. 

A woman marries a man when she is too kind to look or too blind to see.

And vowed that from that resting place 

That pin should ne'er depart. 
Years that passed still found him 

Ever firm and standing pat. 
Still wearing his college frat pin 

In honor of bis frat.

His high resolve took chase. 
A soft voice coaxed the frat pin 

From its old biding place. 
They're now in a little bungalow 

With welcome on the mat, 
And his frat pin — fastens baby clothes 

In honor of his frat.

The Scrub 

"You ask for a toast to the heroes tonight, 

To those who were victors in many a fight, 

To the names that are sung by the public in praise. 

To the stars that rose from a battlefield'' s haze. 

Well, fill up your glasses and drink to my toast: 

Here's a toast to the army, a toast to the host, 

A toast to the steel that is worn and rusted, 

A toast to the jeivel, which fate has encrusted — 

It's only a drink to the forgotten, the dub — 

Here's a toast to His Honor, His Honor: The Scrub. 

It's only a toast to the shadows — no more — • 

You never will see them — it's a terrible bore 

Watching them struggle in snow and in rain. 

Bleeding and fighting for a Varsity's name. 

You say that your heroes struggle as well? 

Yes, they get the honor; the Scrub gets the Hell! 

He's only a shadoiv — it's all in the game. 

And the butterfly you see in the gold of the flame — 

It's only a drink to the forgotten, the dub — 

Here's a toast to His Honor, His Honor: The Scrub. 



To Examinations 

Examinations — awe-inspiring name! 

Thou word of dreadful omen and portent; 
Unknown to song but not unknown to fame. 

Since with thy meaning words like "fail" are blent. 

Thy form looms up before us in our dreams. 
Thy spectre haunts us in our waking hours; 

Thou art a fearful Nemesis, it seems, 

Who never speaks, but laughs; ne'er looks, but lowers. 

Oh, would thou ivouldst thy rigor mitigate! 

'Twould save full many a sigh, and sob, and groan. 
But 'till thou dost, we can but stand and wait, 

While round us still thy hapless victims moan! 





The Growth of an Idea 



An idea is a seed which flowers into 
beautiful jierfection only when every ele- 
ment required in the soil of its production 
is present, and the hands which nurture it 
are sh'lled for the peculiar task which 
they are to ■perform. 

J^o matter how original the ^lan u^on 
which the annual is constructed, how 
artistic the designs, how brilliant the read- 
ing matter, the final success defends u^on 
the visualization of these ideas in such a 
way that the printed book is the living em- 
bodiment of the spiritual conception. 

A j^erfectly equi^^ed factory, together 
with thirty-four years of sym;f)athetic co- 
o;f>eration with many annual staffs, 
should, we believe, fit us for the worh of 
combining our mechanical skill with the 
editors' ideas to produce the highest qual- 
ity of college annual.
