History of The Coat of Arms 

NE of the proudest heritages of our University is its right to the use of 
General Oglethorpe's coat of arms; and we gladly accept this heritage 
because it represents the superb ideals of that wonderful man who was 
both the founder of our State and the inspiration of our University. 
A copy of the Coat of Arms was found in an old book at 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 surmounted by a larger 
boar's head with a green twig and tusk showing. The motto on the scroll beneath 
reads, "Nescit Cedere." 

Only one change has been made from the original coat of arms: General Ogle- 
thorpe's motto "Nescit Cedere" has been changed to read, "Manu Dei Resurrexit." 

Until this year there had been no "official" Coat of Arms of the University; but 
this summer Dr. Jacobs had made a large-sized reproduction of the Coat of Arms, 
which was stamped on his watch fob. This Coat of Arms is beautifully carved in 
walnut and was made in Switzerland. It is to be the "official" Coat of Arms of the 
University and hangs above Dr. Jacobs' desk in his office in Lupton Hall. 


"\amacraw" is a native Georgia word; it is the name of a tribe of Indians who 
lived near the bluff where Oglethorpe first landed. This bluff was called "\ama- 
craw Bluff" and is today just outside of Savannah. 

It was on this bluff that General Oglethorpe negotiated treaties with the Indians 
which caused them to move and to settle along the banks of the Chattahoochee. 

Several appropriate names were suggested for our first Annual, but none ot 
them carried with them the associations of the old word "Yamacraw"; and since the 
publication of the first Annual ro more fittinn; name has been found.

Dedicated to The Mothers of 
The Senior Class of 1923 

Who taught us our prayers, our faith in God, 
And showed us the path that true men should trod. 
Who taught us to travel the Road of Right, 
And to carry truth's banner day and night. 

No man lives who can total their ivorth. 
Toiling for us from the time of our birth. 
Their hearts are alike, their souls are pure white. 
And gleam like lilies throughout all the night. 

Our MOTHERS, our Wonderful MOTHERS!

The Oglethorpe Tradition 

IMERGING proudly and nobly from die mists of half 
a century our two buildings face the stream of busy 
life which flows along Peachtree to and from At- 
lanta, and point toward our unfinished Quadrangle 
where their brothers and sisters will some day be erected. Built 
with the finest materials that the world can offer and under the 
highest ideals that God can inspire, they speak to us of the 
future and of the past. 

They tell us of the day when Sir James Oglethorpe was a 
student at Corpus Christi College in the English town of Ox- 
ford, absorbing the traditions which were even then many cen- 
turies old. They tell us how this Englishman, liberator and 
philanthropist, founded our State of Georgia; and how, with 
deep insight and faithful Christianity he was the first Governor 
in the new world who prohibited slavery and who barred the 
sale of whisky from his State. They tell us why after a hun- 
dred years the Synod of Georgia founded a college in his 
name on a long, low ridge called Midway, near the town of 

Begun in 1835, the college grew rapidly in size and impor- 
tance. It was the only Presbyterian college for men south of 
the Virginia line and became the center of a brilliant assem- 
blage with such names as Leconte, Woodrow, Talmadge, Beman 
and Baker on its roll. Among her alumni were governors, 
justices, discoverers, and — Sidney Lanier. She imbued in her 
students the traditions of Oxford, the love of Oglethorpe, and 
the spirit of New America. 

Then, in '61, the war. 

With all the fervor of her teachings she threw herself into 
the defense of the Confederacy. Her boys marched out to war, 
her money went into Confederate bonds; and she died at Gettys- 
burg. Died fighting. 

MAC ' W 

But the Oglethorpe tradition was not dead — such fine tradi- 
tions never die. Dr. Jacobs can tell you how, in the late 
eighties of the nineteenth century, an aged grandfather used to 
visit his son in South Carolina. For over eighty years he had 
lived the life of a professor and preacher and even now would 
read his testament in the original Greek. There was a little 
grandson who often sat near his great arm-chair to ask ques- 
tions and to hear stories; and one of the stories which he re- 
members with the greatest distinctness is that of a school which 
was founded many years ago, when even the grandfather was a 
youth, and in which he had taught when he became a man. 
The little boy learned to picture the classic outlines of its white 
Doric columns and to imagine the great college chapel which 
was reputed to be the finest in the United States; and more 
than once he said: 

"Grandfather, when I get to be a man I am going to Ogle- 
thorpe, too."' 

The answer was always the same, spoken in tones which were 
full of sadness: 

"No, my boy, you will never stand on the Oglethorpe cam- 

Right, but wrong! For the Oglethorpe tradition handed down 
from grandfather to grandson, was too beautiful to die. The 
boy grew to be a man, and his love for the tradition grew into 
a desire to refound the college. In 1910 he commenced the 
work, and aided by thousands of people whom he touched with 
the magic wand of the tradition, Oglethorpe reopened her 
doors in 1916 — reopened her doors to the young men of the 
South whose grandfathers she had taught before them. 

And see! The mists are lifting! Behind the first two build- 
ings of limestone and granite appears a level and beautiful 
campus. Facing the campus in the distance is a noble, towered 
Gothic building. It is the School of Expressive Arts, the home 
of Literature, Art, Music, Poetry. To the right appears the 



chapel, once again "reputed to be the finest in the United 
States." It is flanked by other majestic buildings, the counter- 
parts of which appear on the left of the campus green. Stu- 
dents move in and out of the Gothic doorways, which are cov- 
ered with evergreen ivy. The very buildings, grand and ever- 
lasting, have fallen heir to the traditions of Oxford, the love 
of Oglethorpe, and the spirit of old Georgia, enobling the lives 
of thousands in the land of Oglethorpe's dream. 

Oglethorpe was founded for a tradition, and through tra- 
dition she was refounded. 

Tradition and the hand of God!

Fair Alma Mater, Oglethorpe, 

Thou didst for others die, 
And noiv, above thy broken tomb, 

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

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

We righteously have wrought. 

We give to thee our lives to mould 

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 now 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.

History of The Senior Class 

E are the Seniors. 

Seniors! What a host of things that word implies. What 
a host of memories it brings back to us. We remember very 
clearly how we first came to school as freshmen; awed by the 
privilege of at last becoming college men and eternally concerned over the 
dangerous possibilities of "rat" court. With the urge of the sophomores 
behind us, in our freshman year we earned the highest class average in the 
school, put out a very successful basketball team, and furnished a large 
number of athletes to the football and baseball squads. 

During our sophomore and junior years we grew older, wiser, and 
fewer in numbers. As we grew we found our abilities and assumed our 
responsibilities; and finally, we found ourselves. 

Found ourselves Seniors! 

As seniors we were the guardians of the honor of our college, the lead- 
ers in all kinds of academic work, and the directors of almost all of the 
student activities. In these things we hope that we have lived up to the 
Oglethorpe tradition. 

It very seldom happens that all the members of a senior class not only 
do very excellent class work, but also are interested almost without excep- 
tion in some form of student activity. We would make this our claim to 

As a result of this activity student enterprises have prospered this year. 
The Oglethorpe Players, which is the oldest organization at Oglethorpe, 
usually gives only one performance, that in the spring; but this year they 
have built a stage in the Lupton Hall chapel, fitted it with scenery, and have 
given seven plays during the year. The membership of the club has grown 
to fifty, taking in one-fourth of the school. 

The Petrel has been published regularly every week, an accomplish- 
ment which had not been realized for several years. Its style has been 
changed and its size has been enlarged so that instead of being a rather 
uninteresting and more or less amateur paper, it has become a live and 
newsy college weekly. 

Our college Annual, the first since 1921, is intended to be compared 
with the best in the South. It has been a considerable strain to put 
out the Annual with so many of our twenty seniors vitally interested in other 
activities; and perhaps it has made some seniors take time from their stud- 
ies; but our class average for the last term was ninety and one-tenth.

C R ' W 

Oglethorpe had not engaged in any intercollegiate debates since the 
time when we were freshmen, and there had been no debating organization 
in school; but when the University of North Carolina challenged us to 
debate the subject of inter-allied indebtedness, we immediately accepted and 
proceeded to form a debating council and to select a debating team. Two 
of the three debaters were seniors; and although we lost the debate we 
gave a very creditable performance, on which we will build a debat- 
ing team for next year. 

Our Y. M. C. A. is an excellent example of the powei-' of doggedness. 
For several years it has carried on without very much support, but has always 
confidently planned for its future; and now its future has come. The Y. M. 
C. A. has taken over the Sunday morning services in Lupton Hall chapel, 
and is conducting them as a student organization. Dr. Libby was the first 
speaker to give an address at these Sunday morning exercises. 

The LeConte Society, premier scientific society at Oglethorpe, has 
been busy all year instructing its members in various subjects of scientific, 
and more particularly of biological importance. A series of papers have 
been handed in by various members of the society; and at some near date 
the society hopes to take up independent research. 

These are the major student organizations at Oglethorpe — all of them 
controlled and directed by a senior class of twenty members. In spite of 
this we have not confined ourselves to student activities. Everything that 
we have touched we have tried to do better than it has been done before. 
We have standardized senior rings, set senior traditions, and proposed and 
advocated student self-government at Oglethorpe. 

We take our leave. In a few months we will be among the names of ' 
the graduates, on the rolls of the alumni. We must leave behind us the 
organizations, the activities and the class-rooms; but we will take with us 
the ideals of our University, the memories of our friends, and the satisfac- 
tion of having done our best.

Senior Class Historian. 

Senior Class Poem 

That priceless dream or vision 

Or awakening something 

Which stirs the heart to restless yearnings 

For heights and steps untrod, 

And wakes the slumvbering 

Force that holds the destiny 

Of one's whole life 

And reveals to him the hidden 

Purposeful ideals towards 

W hich he struggles in the face 

Of defeat and failure — 

Harboring faith and hope. 

Pushing through peril. 

Suffering stings and sacrificing 

Self to attain the goal — 

Is the thing in which is locked 

The force that advances humanity 

Towards the higher purposed end. 

But these yearnings in 7?iost men 

Are no more than rippling waters 

That follow the course of the stream, 

In the midnight silence 

Of the moonlit night, 

Over the impelling precipice 

And fall to the pool below, 

Making for a moment 

The unseen silvery foam 

Which soon disappears forever 

As a dream that is only dreamed. 

But in those few whose hearts hold 

Dreams full of purpose and beauty — 

W ho live by the light therein 

While fearlessly fighting on 

Into the vision beyond 

Where lies the ideal — 

There is the power of Advance.

Although his last year was his first, 
Aleck has won a host of friends that 
sincerely regret the parting words, which 
must come in June. You can reason 
with him if you have the time to spare, 
the wit to understand him or the brass 
to try to bluff him. But with a note 
of finality and a curt smile of disap- 
proval he will soon dismiss you, or 
himself, and withal, you can't help but 
realize that his reasoning has impressed 
you. From the day he entered our 
class he has impressed us with his son- 
atas from Beethoven and Carusorial 
solos to such an extent that in our minds 
there remains no doubt as to his future 
in the musical world. Out of his mouth 
and violin come forth much music and 
out of the music many notes. May your 
notes be many and on strong banks. 
Yea, even as Caruso's. 

En Passant. 
Ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta — well, that must be 
Aleck. How's the violin today, Aleck? 
A little off? Well, that's too bad. 
How's the voice? Not up to usual? 
Well, well! And how are you? Glum? 
Well, now, that's too bad. What do you 
think of the operetta? Fine, but I 
think the Indian chief should have an 
extra tomahawk in his girdle to keep 
the Co-eds off.

And here's one of those fellows who 
always attain the end they hold in view. 
Whether on railroad or in class, Nel- 
son has never failed to glide easily 
through, seemingly with no difficulties. 
He came to Oglethorpe from Madison, 
Ga., and showed from the very begin- 
ning that defeat had no place in his 
route, laid out by destiny. He made 
his entire expenses in the printing of- 
fice, where he proved himself to be the 
best pressman that ever served in that 
department. As we pause before disin- 
tegration we all wish you Godspeed, 
Nelson, wherever you cast your line. 

En Passant. 
Nelson has that supreme faculty of 
helping a teacher teach a class. Eco- 
nomics, however, is his hobby, and in 
it he far surpasses all of his other 
efforts. It would not do to go so far 
as to say that he actually teaches Mrs. 
Libby the subject, but at least he often 
tells her when to dismiss the class. At 
any rate, Nelson has recently shifted 
his attention to football. Some wise 
cracks say that he did it in order to 
have a ready-made excuse from class.

Here's the easy-going optimist from 
Easley. Yes, sir, gentlemen, this man 
from the "Palmetto" State is one who 
has always peeped upon the bright 
side of life. He has always had a 
cheering smile for everyone, and his 
friends at Oglethorpe are numbered by 
the enrollment of students and Faculty. 
We will all remember Cobb as the man 
who "fixes" things, since that has been 
his mode of livelihood. Nothing is too 
difficult for him to fix, from a burnt-out 
light to a broken heart, and it's natural 
that he will keep himself "fixed," though 
he may often be broke. 

Cobb, old boy, there's no need to 
wish you luck, we cannot imagine you 
as a failure in life, but here's to you — 
may success be even greater hereafter 
than heretofore.

Now you know Mac is a fine fellow, 
but he is a lady's man. Of course the 
writer being a woman hater can't say 
much for that quality of Mac's but bar- 
ring that, "All praise Mac." Any day 
you can stroll across the campus and 
hear him playing familiar strains on 
his harp and guitar which make you 
think of the days of your youth — bring 
them back, Mac. I'm for you.

He came to Oglethorpe in the fall of 
192U to cast his lot in the future with 
us. And, believe me, not only the fu- 
ture will be glad to receive a man of 
such fine character and poise, but his 
many friends here in the University will 
think of him devotedly as a fellow of 
sterling quality. 

Gifted with an innate love for litera- 
ture, it is but natural that in his Senior 
year he should choose to write poetry 
and timely articles for different publi- 
cations, hence we find him in the Eng- 
lish department. Though now a mem- 
ber of the Bachelor's Club, there have 
been certain rumors which make it 
rather difficult for his friends to believe 
in his assertions of loyalty to the prin- 
ciples and creed of the Club. 

Essentially an optimist, honest and 
sincere in all his intercourse with his 
fellow students, Royall has formed 
many lasting friendships.

He is capable of wielding the editorial 
pen as though from an inexhaustible 
source. It also may be well said that 
he has a bountiful supply of good old 
"horse sense." 

He has a friendly way and pleasant 
smile which bids fair to win him suc-

Hammack was a Godsend to the bot-

of a fellow who can tell tales of opium 
dens and the South Sea Islands, when 
it comes to whiling away laboratory 
periods. He is the only story-teller we 
ever had who could scare the Co-eds 
every time. And opinions — well, sir, 
if there is any book that he has not read, 
I will read it just to be able to tell you 
that it isn't any good. You shall have 
an autograph copy of my book when it 
comes out, if you will criticize it.

He speaks very little, but when he 
speaks he speaks wisely. While in our 
midst J. 0. has made a most enviable 
record, always standing at or near the 
top in his commercial course. He is 
the kind of man we all think of as a 
future financial magnet, and if the wo- 
men will let him alone long enough, 
we are sure that his success in the com- 
mercial world will be in keeping with 
that of the maker of Fords. High-

Hightower's cornet has not the aggres-

expect, you never find Hightower in a 
heated argument; it is always a digni-

He is a year-round fellow. He looks

If you have ever seen him on the cam-

such a small boy carried so many books. 
If you will notice the size of his head 
you will see that there is plenty of 
room for all the knowledge in many 
books. Of course it is reaching its 
capacity, but we all know that his ca- 
pacity for knowledge is bounded only 
by infinity.

Here is a case that doesn't need much

a vanity case. And that key is lost in 
Spartanburg. Monroe hikes up there 
every opportunity that he gets and tries 
to find it. You see, she used to live in

it. That's fine, Monroe, but do try to 
keep us confirmed bachelors company

No, not quite that bad. for we know his

has been a student in the School of Class-

He is a person of no small ability in 
the dramatic field, as all his associates 
well know. And we would furthermore 
say that Earle has quite a literary turn, 
too. He was elected Senior Class 
Prophet, showing that his colleagues are 
aware of this talent. He is a steady 
worker, earnest, and straightforward. 
We are looking for great things from 
his field of work in the future. He ex- 
pects to outdo Luther Burbank in the

he never has anything to repeat. The 
only way to know what Joel thinks is 
to watch his expression. If Joel con-

was forced to retire from the field early 
in the season with a broken arm. which 
disabled him the remainder of the sea- 
son. Later he suffered a broken leg 
in baseball, which forced a turning of 
thoughts from field to forum. Once in 
the literary circle he took the center, 
editing the Petrel in his Senior year. 
He took charge of the printing depart-

worked his way to an A.B. degree in 
three years. His success at 0. U. is 
exceeded only by his popularity with

and has been a most zealous worker 

We would say of Louise, had she gone 
to a "Female College," her political in-

here it has remained dormant, while her 
progress as a student has gained wide 
note. She has a quality of Christian

in this way is far-reaching. Louise, our

creed, your religion, and your point of 
view, when you come to a man's school; 
but what's not worth working for, is not 
worth having. Co-eds have our sym-

Introducing our Penn is an easy job, 
because he is known to everyone. He 
came to Oglethorpe in the fall of 1919 
and has been trailing in the paths of the 
learned ever since. 

But Penn often wonders why studies 
must conflict with one's College career. 
Athletics and outdoor sports appeal to 
him much more than studies, baseball 
being his specialty; but since he must 
study he has a choice among the many 
branches, and that is the study of Com- 
merce. Believing that genius is merely 
the power of concentrated effort, he has 
overcome many obstacles and is now 
ready to reap the first fruits of his 
labors. We wish you much success 
along life's journey, Penn. 

En Passant. 
Penn represents the quiet side of the 
argument. He is the Jack out of the 
box, the other side of the mountain. 
Don't try to fool Penn, for you can't 
get him to express an opinion on any 
subject except baseball. And Penn is 
just like the other side of the argument, 
he is always there. Since he has a face 
set with a perpetual smile, it was only 
natural for him to take the business 
course. And since he is always there 
it is only natural that he shall make a 
success of it.

our doubts as to the future of the Club 
as far as John is concerned. 

John's career at Ogletliorpe is one of 
which he may well be proud. His abil- 
ity as an athlete is unexcelled. Espe- 
cially would we mention him in connec- 
tion with football. John has played at

of himself. After he graduates, if John 
continues doing as he has while here, 
he will always be an "Ace of Spades," 
whatever the game.

one of the greatest boosters the Univer-

sustain a great loss when Edgar has

As a lawyer, we have no doubt as to 
his future. He has been a man upon 
whom we could rely to take a part in 
almost all the college activities, and 
carry them through successfully. May 
you receive the laurels you deserve,

Where are his quillets, his quiddets, 
his cases, his tenures, and his tricks? 
In the case of Ed we can answer all of 
these questions. His quillets are stored 
in his superior temporal convolutions; 
his quiddets are at the end of a ready 
tongue, and his cases consist chiefly of 
getting "Jock" Hood up for breakfast in 
the morning. His tenures consist of 
everything that he can get his hands on, 
and his tricks would shame a horse 
dealer. The Freshmen declare that Ed 
is a villain at correcting English papers, 
but the Seniors will tell you that Ed is 
right there.

Senior Class Prophecy 

iHE fourth class to be graduated by Oglethorpe University consists 
of twenty-two students, three women of whom the L niversity is espe- 
cially proud, and nineteen men. Having completed their last year in 
college they will go out into the world to find their fortunes and mis- 
fortunes, to be judged and misjudged, and to be cussed and discussed. 

The prophecy which follows is written after much care and forethought have 
been exercised and after much consideration of the trend of the minds of the sub- 
jects, and is believed to be as nearly correct as an ordinary human can make it with- 
out the aid of a futurist. 

We have among our ranks at the college quite a few who show evidence of 
making something of themselves after leaving college, to climb many of the steps 
of the rough hewn stairs of success, and to bring honor and glory to their own names 
and to their Alma Mater. 

One of the most promising members of the senior class is Edgar Watkins. He 
has promised from his Freshman year up and has failed to carry out very few of 
his promises. He now promises to become one of the foremost lawyers of the 
South and there is no forecasting of what he may do when he gets started. 

Penn Selman hopes to own and operate a ''Gold and Black" taxi service in one 
of our large Southern cities. In this, his commercial training will stand him in 
good stead. He will doubtless give free service to all "friends of Oglethorpe" pro- 
vided they intend to walk. 

Sidney Ives intends to make a fortune in the clothing business. It is thought 
that he will specialize in selling derbies and canes to the college men as there are 
wonderful opportunities along this line. We wish him much success in the business. 

George Ernest Talley — the cutest boy in two counties. George is a very lik- 
able chap and will probably become manager of the Villa Rica baseball team, if he 
cannot attain success as a dancing teacher in some fashionable finishing school. A 
good man can never be kept down. 

Miss Louise McCammon intends to bring honor to Oglethorpe as a professor in 
one of our large Southern institutions, unless certain complications set in which 
direct her attention along more peaceful yet attractive lines. Her case is a decidedly 
interesting one and will bear watching. 

Everyone is worried about 0. M. Cobb. We are afraid that before he gets 
well started in his commercial career he will have settled down and begun housekeep- 
ing. It looks as though 1923 is to be a real commencement year for him. 

The Commerce Department has turned out many a good man, and here is a 
fair sample. J. Marion Stafford will contend with Ponzi for first place among con- 
trollers of finance. He has the talent for such business and will probably, in a 
few years, add to Oglethorpe's number of buildings as concrete evidence of it. 

John L. Jacobs. This ha'^dsome chap has an ambition to become a great doctor, 
and if he continues working at the rate he has in college^ there is no doubt that he 
will realize his ambition. If he should, by any chance, happen to fail, he would 
have no trouble in getting a job coaching a class in dramatics. 

Miss Leone Tribble is a product of Poulet Hall and can carve a cat with her 
eyes shut. She is headed for a professorship in some big college, where she will 
teach the science to others less skilled than she. It is not certain," but her coy looks 
and winning ways will probably have won something else for her by that time. 


Whenever we talk about clever persons we think of Nelson Burton. This im- 
pelling chap has become fascinated by the printing shop and will doubtless make 
his work in that line. There is no chance for a man of his calibre to fail in any- 
lliing he undertakes. 

Murray Copeland is scheduled for a brilliant medical career. Many start out 
in the profession but lose heart before they have gone far. We feel sure that 
Murray's strength of character and devotion to his purpose will enable him to see 
the thing through. 

John Varnedoe may turn out to be a football coach, and for all we know may 
some day be responsible for an Oglethorpe victory over some of the "Up-North" 
Universities. It is not a settled question, however; he might become a big man 
in the newspaper world. 

Judging from his present tendencies, J. 0. Hightower will soon become a com- 
mercial wizard. He may go into business in Jonesboro, but we feel sure that where- 
ever he goes he will make a big success. 

Joel Kersey, a man of intelligence and good judgment. Things look as though 
he were choosing the master profession, that of agriculture. To be a successful 
farmer Joe will need knowledge acquired at Oglethorpe and probably more. 

Fred Laurence is a newspaper man by nature and doubtless will follow that 
business after his graduation. If in his future life he puts as much into his work 
as he has at Oglethorpe, he may put the "home" town papers out of business. 

Another good man is R. C. Frazier. He has toiled and labored for the good of 
Oglethorpe for three years, and more than likely will continue to work as hard 
throughout his life. He is interested in the printing business and may some day 
put some real literature before us. 

Bert Hammack has an ambition to become an important figure in a large pub- 
lishing house. He believes it would be great fun to cover a would-be author's paper 
with blue pencil marks and send it back to him. He will be a good man for that job. 

It is difficult to say what will become of Adolf Aleck, but it is probable that 
he will organize a new opera company, and perform in the leading cities of the 
country. Music is his middle name. 

Monroe Hollingsworth has shown unusual abilities in his college life and if 
he is not watched closely he is liable to show up the Chamber of Commerce, and 
really put Atlanta on the map. 

As for the Prophet, on whose future we have dreaded to expostulate, he will 
no doubt in years to come stop his Fordson over by the woods on the west side of 
the field, and lean against the rail fence and listen to the voices of the birds as they 
chirp and sing, and make him glad he has chosen Tennessee for a home. 

Grand and glorious futures for all the members of the class of'23 have been 
prophesied, and we do so not without some faith in their abilities to carry out these 
predictions. We believe that if each of us exerts to the fullest, his faculties and 
training acquired while at Oglethorpe, he cannot do otherwise than become a credit 
to the University. Oglethorpe wishes to build its reputation on the acts and accom- 
plishments of its graduates, so we must acquit ourselves in a fitting manner in order 
that we may not prove detriments to the progress of our Alma Mater. 

J. Earle Johnson, Prophet. 



Some Day 

Oh, that at last 1 should have seen a day like this! 

Such sunlit day: 

This softly sloping, velvet green, 

O'er-looking march so catholic. 

Patient of every grass and weed and flower. 

Of every sea and sun and snoiv and star. 

The long, low barricade of stones beyond. 

Whereon the ocean vents his violence. 

And then, afar, the white-lipped ivaves. 

And storm-ivorn rocks, 

And distant, hazy islands half-discerned, 

And birds that fly and fly and fly — 

Out, o'er the sea, and on and on and on — 

Into the mists — 

As I — perhaps. 

On some such day as this. 

Some sunlit day.

Thy Meed 

(Dedicated to the Junior Class, Oglethorpe University.) 
O ye who have the light 

Lift it on high! 
Life's sea is rough; its billows froth with foam. 

And souls are tempest-tossed — 
Then let it shine. 

And send its rays across the sea 

To warn and save the lost. 

O ye who waters drink 

From Knowledge Fount, 
And quaff the magic good that flows therefrom. 

Pass ye around the cup 
That they may sip 

Who yearn for drink and lack for chance 

And strength to slake their thirst. 

ye who dwell among 

The gods sublime. 
And know success, and what it is to live. 

Reach back and lend a hand. 
Thy race is won! 

Behind thee, stragglers carry on, 

Or fall and rise no more. 

Be ■humble, oh. thy soul, 

For unto whom 
So much is given, so much ivill be required. 

If this to you be Heaven, 
Remember those 

Who dwell below, and, reaching down, 

Lift them unto your level.

Junior Class History 

HEN we came to Oglethorpe in the fall of 1920 we 
were the largest freshman class in the history of 
Oglethorpe. We suffered in due course from the 
usual amount of over sympathetic Sophomore atten- 

tion, and quickly learned the joys as well as the hardships of 

college life. 

Although it was not the first year in which skirts had been 
seen decorating the Oglethorpe corridors, with our coming the 
decorations became of Oriental richness. There were twenty- 
five Co-eds in our class. 

In spite of these afflictions we lived and became sophomores, 
acquiring the privilege of afflicting in our turn. We acquired 
much wisdom, but dispensed much. 

Now, in our Junior year, our class has dwindled until we 
have just forty members, when as Freshmen we numbered 112. 
Nevertheless we are well represented in every branch of school 
activity. Our class President, Ed. David, was captain of the 
football team for the season of '22. Eight Juniors made foot- 
ball letters last season. In other sports "Red" Ivey was cap- 
tain of the track team, and Jake Morris was captain of baseball 
during the past year. We have taken a lively interest in the 
Oglethorpe Players, and have been represented in the spring 
plays each year. 

And we are still holding on to the determination to make the 
class of '24 Oglethorpe's best.

Sophomore Class History 

NE hundred and ten typical freshmen entered Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity in the Fall of '22, quite capable of advising the JFaculty, 
to say nothing of upper classmen. They were given a cordial 
J welcome and for two days enjoyed college life, when their dig- 
nity was insulted and their pride humbled by the Sophomore orders out- 
lined for them. The majority of them soon learned that their chairs were 
more comfortable when these orders were obeyed. However, some tried 
to continue to be advisors and defenders of liberty, and as a result "Rat 
Court" was in session the entire year. 

The class of '25 is very proud of the success of our freshman year, 
as we were well represented in football and baseball. We are boastful of 
supplying the pitcher who made Oglethorpe victorious over Georgia Tech. 
And in basket-ball, the freshman team represented Oglethorpe in the S. I. 
A. A. tournament held in Atlanta ; while in the Southeastern A. A. U. track 
meet at Georgia Tech, "Tiny" Roberts made a Southern record throwing 
the discus and putting the shot. 

The loyal remnants of this freshman class met and reorganized in the 
Fall of '22. And the advisors were happy, for then there were many to 
accept their advice. Though unsolicited, we modestly admit that time and 
experience have hade us quite efficient disciplinarians of this year's fresh- 
men. The management of the freshman class has been an interesting ex- 
perience for the Sophomores, and was the means of discovering material 
for the Law School. 

A creditable number of our class have merited positions on the football 
and baseball teams this year. In the Players' Club, several have done very 
good work as players, play writers, writing poetry, and composing music. 
With the talent and ambition of this class, we expect to attain still higher 
honors before completing our careers at Oglethorpe. 

Miller Hamrick, 
Sophomore Class Historian.

Freshman Class History 

N September 21 we entered the freshman class of Oglethorpe 
University. I cannot tell of the trials and tribulations of the first 
few hours and days, for they are too numerous to relate. In 
comparison with the "Wise Sophs," "Model Juniors" and the 
"Serious and Dignified Seniors," we felt, oh — how insignificant. It was 
a hard year for some of us; but on the whole the memory of it is pleasure 
playing tag with pain. 

We freshies gathered together for the first time in Lupton Hall on Sep- 
tember 28 for the purpose of electing class officers, c. w. corless was 
elected president, r. e. ford, vice-president, and priscilla hunt, secretary and 

The annual freshman minstrel show was the second important step in 
our first year. The freshmen are required to give a minstrel show each 
year for the enjoyment and entertainment of the sophomores. After many 
days and nights of hard work the minstrel performance was given on October 
6, in Lupton Hall. Much to the delight of the freshmen, it pleased the 

Athletics always tend to create more class and school spirit, so let 
us not forget our football men and other athletes, c. w. corless, j. w. 
laney, c. h. young, j. w. branscomb, m. a. nix, and r. e. ford form our 
football squad, charles corless has the distinction of being the letter man 
from our class. The cheer leader of our class is branscomb, who is known 
by every student. 

Our talents are not wholly athletic, for there are quite a number of 
musical freshmen. There is the Mandolin Club, of which five members 
are freshmen — elizabeth ransome, lillian mccammon, priscilla hunt, and 
s. b. wimbish. 

We now feel very proud of our freshmen class. In September, when 
we first began our career at Oglethorpe, we felt green and ignorant and 
very much out of place. Within a few months' time everything had changed 
for us. We now feel that we are a part of our Alma Mater. The class 
of '26 is represented in all her activities, and we are looking forward to a 
gixat future for the freshmen of '22.

Fraternity History At Ogelthorpe 

ATING from the time when Oglethorpe was consid- 
ered first among the institutions of the South, her 
fraternity history was divided into three periods. 
The first dates from the establishment of chapters 
in 1859 by Beta Theta Pi and Sigma Alpha Epsilon. This 
period ended in 1861, when the loyal sons of Oglethorpe 
marched away to defend the Southland. 

The second period was a brief, unfortunate one. It dates 
from 1870-73, when the University was re-established in At- 
lanta, only to fall in the general crash caused by the financial 
disaster of the reconstruction days. The fraternity spirit was 
active at this time. The 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 the new Ogle- 
thorpe. This was followed by Kappa Alpha on December 1, 

In- 1916 a club was organized and was called Alpha Lambda. 
Nothing of importance was heard of the Alpha Lambda Club 
until 1920, when the Club decided to become a national fra- 
ternity of its own. On March 27, 1921, a charter was granted 
to the Alpha Lambda Tan, giving it the right to become a na- 
tional fraternity by the State of Georgia. The Alpha Lambda 
Tan was the first fraternity in the history of Old and New Ogle- 
thorpe to become a national fraternity. 

In 1922 the Alpha Omega, a local club, was granted a char- 
ter by the Delta Sigma Phi.

purpose of bringing all classes- of students and representatives of all 
kinds of student activites together. By getting together in this way, it 
tends to bring all the representative; to the realization lliat they are work- 
ing for a common cause, and not each for his separate activity.

The Club was founded in 1919 through the efforts of Robert G. 
Nichols for the purpose of standardizing athletics at Oglethorpe and 
the putting of the school's athletics on a higher plane of sportsmanship. 

The membership in the Club is limited to men who have won their 
letters in some branch of major sport, and although letter men are not 
compelled to become members of the organization, the Club has come 
to have such an effect upon Oglethorpe athletics that membership in 
the Club has come to be looked upon as following the winning of a 

Because of the service it has rendered to local athletics, the faculty 
committee on athletics has given to the Club the right to elect the man- 
agers of the various teams which represent the school, and to have a part 
in the naming of athletes who may wear the Varsity 0.

The Players' Club has been an integral part of the school, since it is 
the oldest of all the student activities. It is both original and unique 
in the fact that it; aims not only to develop the dramatic instinct latent 
in individual members by giving them experience in acting, but also to 
foster and promote the production of plays by these same members. For 
three years this plan has been followed most successfully. The first 
year, four one-act plays were put on: "The Man from the Agency," by 
R. H. Armstrong; "The Thief," by Margaret Horton; "The Interrupted 
Chess Game," by P. H. Gaboon; "Arranged by the Family," by B. W. 
Collier. Last year only three plays were presented: "After the B.A., 
What?" by Grace Fis?her; "Out of the Night," and "Prospects," both by 
J. H. Burns. This year the plays selected for production were: "Billing 
and Coueing," by L. G. Pfefferkorn; "Realities," by Rossiter Chance and 
Gladys Crisler; and "The Prince of Egypt," by Louise McCammon.

Oglethorpe believes in music as the expression of harmony and joy 
of living. In the beginning, therefore, she founded her band and orches- 
tra. The instruments were largely donated by Mrs. Lee Ashcraft, former 
President of the Woman's Board of the L'niversity. Both orchestra and 
band are now under the direction of Mr. John T. Lee, whose skillful 
management has developed certainly one of the best college orchestras 
in Southern Inter-collegiate circles. It is the pride of the college and is 
in demand on all occasions, social, radio, academic. The orchestra fur- 
nishes the music for the Oglethorpe Players on the occasions of the 
presentation of their plays both on the campus and in the down-town

The Oglethorpe University Orchestra is an unusual one among college orches- 
tras. Most of its members are experienced professional players of wide experience 
and all of the solo instrument players have shown real ability. Thq natural result 
of combining these players is an exceptionally fine, little orchestra. 

Adolph Aleck is a violinist whose tone you will remember. 

Robert E. Lee plays the clarinet in a way that has earned for him a place among 
the leading clarinetists in Atlanta. R. E. can do things with his clarinet that will 
make you wonder. 

Roy Lee plays the cornet. His playing reveals a very adequate technique, but 
Roy uses this technique as a means only to an end. He plays like the great ones. 

Will Lee certainly holds up his end of the reputation that the Lees have earned 
by their musical work. Like his three brothers, Bill played professionally long 
before coming to Oglethorpe. In addition to being a fine alto player. Bill is a 
pianist who knows how to put things over. 

John T. Lee, director, is one of the finest fellows we ever met. John knows 
music and can play it. We always expect great things from him and these expecta- 
tions rise since we have just learned that a very desirable scholarship under one of 
the best teachers downtown has been awarded to our own John. 

Miss Carol Gifford's piano playing is interesting because she herself is interest- 
ing and everything she does is interesting. In addition to her work with us she 
plays one of the big organs down town. 

Rossiter W. Chance is just the drummer this orchestra has been looking for. 
And we've been looking for the best drummer we could get. 

Robert Pfefferkorn has appeared as piano soloist with the orchestra on a num- 
ber of occasions. He plays the big things in a really big way. His playing of the 
Ballade in A flat will give you some new ideas.

to luck and Providence the results which their own hard efforts have 
accomplished. All during the year this organization has been bringing 
out to Oglethorpe prominent ministers, lawyers, doctors, and business 
men from the city of Atlanta; men who were best fitted to inspire in Ogle- 
thorpe men the ideals and traditions of their college. As a splendid 
recognition of their efforts this organization has been put in charge of 
the Sunday morning services in the Lupton Hall chapel, and they are 
redoubling their efforts to give Oglethorpe the atmosphere of true relig- 
ion which must presage any sort of great success.

Debating Team 

Edgar Watkins, Jr., Leader 

John Jacobs Abe Orowitz 

Robert Jackson, Alternate 

At a meeting called in the fall by Dr. James Routh to consider the 
challenge of the debating team of the University of North Carolina, officers 
of the Debating Council were elected: John Jacobs, president; Sidney 
Ives, vice-president and Marshall Houx, secretary and treasurer. 

The subject proposed bv the Carolina men was, "Resolved. That all 
debts incurred by the Allied powers in carrying on the World War should 
be cancelled," and the Oglethorpe men assigned to the affirmative side 
of the question, John Jacobs, Edgar Watkins and Abe Orowitz won as 
principals in the tryouts with Robert Jackson acting as alternate. 

The meeting of the Carolina team in Lupton Hall inaugurated de- 
bating as a local undertaking, this being the first intercollegiate contest 
on the campus. Althougt the debaters were fully prepared by reason of 
intensive training under Dr. Routh the Carolina debaters won the unani- 
mous decision of the judges. 

But with the entering of the activity of forum work it is believed 
that from this time on the Oglethorpe debaters will take more readily to 
the work and debating will become a regular activity at Petrel Nest.

The man in the center of the picture wearing a slouch hat is Coach 
Fi'ank B. Anderson, who is by no means a slouch of a coach. 

Coach Anderson has been director of Oglethorpe athletics ever since 
there was such a thing as the word "tram" associated with our Alma Mater. 
He has had supervision of football, basket-ball, track, tennis and baseball 
outfits during the seven years that he has been connected with the Univer- 
sity, but the turning out of first-rate baseball teams is his particular hobby. 
He's perfected his hobby to the n'tieth degree. 

At some forgotten occasion Dr. Thornwell Jacobs referred to Coach 
Anderson as the "Father of Oglethorpe Athletics." The occasion is for- 
gotten, but the title stuck. And it's right that it should. He's daddied and 
petted and even beat, all in a fatherly manner, considerable athletic knowl- 
edge into the more or less elephant-tusk craniums of many a Petrel who 
later rose to heavenly heights in athletic atmosphere. 

There's a gentle persuasion mixed with a leading ability in the method 
of instruction that the Petrel mentor employs that gets the fighting spirit 
into his men. The reputation that the Gold and Black aggregations have 
gotten throughout the Southland is largely due to Coach Anderson. It may 
be a love for the man, it may be a desire to put Oglethorpe first, or it may 
be the mere personality of the leader, but whatever the cause of this spirit it 
is sure that Coach has injected that rare and much be-cherished team work 
into his candidates. 

Coach Anderson has done rare service for Oglethorpe in the years that 
he has led Petrel athletes, and the Annual staff is echoing the sentiment of 
the student body in toto, when it raises the glass to him, "A rare gentleman 
and an athlete." 

Coach Russel Stein, captain of the undefeated Washington and Jeffer- 
son eleven and tackle on Camp's AU-American, made his debut in coaching 
at Oglethorpe in 1922. 

Coach Stein knew football. Trained by the great "Greasy" Neale, he 
had gotten hold of the details of the game and added to that a perfect 
physique and the intuitive trend to the sport, he was scheduled to make the 
Petrels a grid machine of strength. He worked long with the candidates, 
drilling them in the art of pig-skin chasing, and though the season from the 
standpoint of games won could rank as no hurricane success, it was never 
said of Stein's proteges that they didn't know and play the game with a snap 
and dash. 




The first year is the hardest. Coach Stein has gone through his first 

year, and though he isn't to return to Oglethorpe in '23, it is to be predicted 

"-| with a degree of certaintude that wherever he takes up coaching duties in 

the years ahead he will turn out a team with the same spirit behind it that 

the Petrel squad of '22 possessed. 

Tod Browning. 

The assistant to Coach Stein has made himself a part of Oglethorpe. 

He, like the head of the grid machine, made himself, athletically 
speaking, at Washington and Jefferson. And he and Stein knew what they 
wished to do with the men in the squad. Tod helped, and prayed over and 
led in his part of the work with a kindly spirit which got the stuff out of 
the Petrel warriors. 

Tod didn't carry with him the manner of the shoulders and brains of 
"Ye Old Time Coach." His method on and off the field was that of an 
elder brother who was merely showing some rudimentary tricks to his 
younger kids. He was a boy with the rest, he enjoyed the work, he liked 
the game, and in return the football scholars gave their best to the assistant 

This isn't intended as an obituary for Tod. He is still a part of the 
coaching staff and long may he be one of us. But this flower tossing to the 
departed brethren is so much in vogue that it only seems proper to give a 
few to the men with us. 

"To you. Tod, and may you long be a boy, teaching with your younger 
brothers at Oglethorpe."

Football Letter Men 

Edgar David, Lejt End, Captain 

"He may not be the best football captain in America, 
but for hard fighting and clear leadership he is the 
best I have ever seen." This is the tribute paid the 
Petrel leader for his work throughout the season by 
Coach Russell Stein, and the statement of the Coach 
is backed by Morgan Blake, who says. "Ed David, of 
Oglethorpe, is one of the best open field tacklers in 
Dixie, and it is a pleasure to accord such a brilliant 
player and hard fighter honorable mention" on the 
All-Southern for '22. Capt. David directed the team 
from his wing position, his calling of signals being of 
high order. In fact '22 was Ed's year all around. 

Jules Price, Manager 

We don't know whether or not Jules enjoyed his job 
of caring for Mother Carey's chickens or not, but the 
squad did appreciate the care he gave them. The 
spring sometimes left his gait as he trotted about in 
the interest of his athletes, but the willingness to do 
everything he could do or have done for them never 
was lacking. There is no price to be set upon a good 
manager, they are rare and above sordid materialistic 
gold, but Jules deserves to have his name set in letters 
of the yellow metal along with Connie Mack's in the 
managerial Hall of Fame. 

RoBT. Brown, Right End, Capt.-Elect 

"Jug" Brown, the captain for the coming season, 
knows football. He learned it while faithfully serving 
time — two years in fact — upon the Scrubs. But the 
well-used adage concerning a worthy man and holding 
him low was again proved true, for in the short Fall 
of '22 Jug won a position on the team, his letter and 
the captaincy for the coming Fall. In our humble 
estimation that's a great record for three short months. 
Jug has stepped to the front. We predict that he will 
be a fighting leader of a scrappy team. 


John Varnedoe, Quarter 

""Geechie " has been quarter on the Petrel team so 
long that he seems to be unable to be displaced. For 
the seasons of '20. '21 and "22 the man from Savannah 
has barked out signals for Gold and Black elevens. 
John, besides having a football brain of good quality 
and quantity has a body of some import. He uses 
this combination to great advantage in those off-tackle 
gains of his. and in providing that interference in a 
tackle-bustin' way. He leaves in June and may this 
be his football epitaph, "He played a great game for 

Walter Gordy, Quarter and Half 

■"Frog" came to Petrel Camp from Tech High and 
his good work there continued here. The picture shows 
Frog standing still. No lens is fast enough to catch him 
in motion. When those short legs start work — watch 
out! He has a peculiar sort of barrel roll that in some 
way manages to continue for added yards. His drive 
is good, but it is his fighting heart which makes the 
midget back a real player. He supplies the pep for the 
crow d. 

John Morris, Half 

Jake has a hobby, the use of which has great dra- 
matic possibilities. It has been known to make strong 
men weep and other hearty fellows to give way to 
great joy. To be exact, Jake's innocent pastime is 
making his right foot connect with an inflated hogs- 
hide. It is a joy to see that Jake boy lift them high 
and far. In the Florida game especially did the sup- 
porters of the Gold and Black rejoice, while tliose who 
applauded the antics of the Gold and Blue "Gator were 
sore-hearted at Jake's work. Good-hearted Jake was 
;onstantly making his fellow-students merry.

A C R A W 


Adrian Maurer, Half 

In the Tech game, the first one of the season, Adrian 
ihowed what he is capable of doing by grabbing a 
pass on the kickoff and running through the Yellow 
Jackets for a touchdown. Of the sixty-three points 
scored by the team in their games, this halfback scored 
thirty-six. He has the signal honor of making Ogle- 
thorpe's first touchdown against Tech and the Univer- 
sity of Georgia. He was the outstanding star of '22. 

Raymond Stephens, Fullback 

This elongated back was the second half of that 
combination which went through Tech. Mutt was a 
demon for work and punishment. "You can knock 
him down but never out'' aptly applied to Mutt. 
Backing up the line was his specialty and he did it 
to a Petrel's taste. And the big fellow was to be 
depended on for consistent line plunging throughout the 
season. Mutt is a worthy wearer of the Gold and 

Robert Kilgore, Fullback 

'"Bob the Sheik" brought six feet of height, good 
looks and football ability out to Oglethorpe and used 
them all to considerable advantage. But on Saturday 
afternoons Bob used the latter the most effectively. 
He could sling passes with consummate grace and 
accuracy and bust into and through a line with the 
same poise. Being a first-year man Bob was ineligible 
for some of the first games, but he made up for lost 
time in the rest of the matinees. 


Herman Hafele, Right End 

Hack was one of the few unfortunate Petrels who 
suffered from injuries during the season and his loss 
from service after the Mercer game was hard on botli 
the team and Hack, as the big end. loved the rough 
game. Alternating at right end with Brown, Hack could 
always be counted on to go well. Here's hoping that 
Old Man Hard Luck forgets to visit Hack in the com- 
ing years. 

Wendell Crowe, Tackle 

"Watch that Crowe fly." At getting down the field 
under punts Wendell was a dream — a nightmare to 
opponents, in fact, as the fasH tackle was always ready 
to smear the receiver of Jake's spirals. Deprived of 
a letter in "21 because of a bad shoulder. Wendell 
played through the "22 schedule in great shape. Big 
as he isj he has a manner of driving through and throw- 
ing men for losses and on offense he carries his man 
out of the play as effectively. A great tackle is Wen- 

Luther Wyatt, Tackle 

For some reason or other Luther seems made for foot- 
ball. Big and powerful he can fill quite a hole in the 
line. .4nd he can make a sizeable opening in the oppo- 
sition line also. Playing his first year on the Varsity, 
Luther stepped along like an oM timer. His endur- 
ance is remarkable and his ability just as much so. 
Frankly we believe that with a bit more experience he 
will make All-Southern. 



Thomas Bartenfeld, Tackle and Center 

A football season at Oglethorpe without Rube is about 
as possible as Christmas without its gifts. It may hap- 
pen, but here's hoping that the sad day is many moons 
away. We wouldn't exactly say that Rube ever hiber- 
nates, but at any rate he comes out strong on crisp 
Autumn afternoons. Since being disillusioned of the 
fact that Bill Fincher is a burned-out old man Rube 
has settled down to real playing. His work in the 
Turman game will ever stand out as great football. 


Q- Charles Corliss, Tackle 

William Shakespeare in bygone times remarked 
pointedly regarding the respective agreeab'.eness of 
sleek and thin men. In the same tenor let it be said 
that for a good tackle and one whom it is liked to 
have on the Oglethorpe football team is a man who 
takes to the game as well as the big Freshman. He 
was big and he was mighty and had the fight — three 
requisites for Varsity. Charley, having these virtues, 
was aptly rewarded by his block letter. 

Candler Campbell, Guard 

Candler started the season at an end, but an abund- 
ance of good wing-men and a lack of suitable rush line 
material resulted in his going to his guard position 
where, with his size and drive, he at once made a regu- 
lar Varsity berth. '"Old Lady" was a playing fool the 
whole season long. He possesses that invaluable asset 
o{ a fighting heart, and combining with that real 
ability and considerable size, he is a plaver that any 
school would be proud to have represent her. 



>s a 

William Porter, Guard 

Here's another lineman who first did service in a 
more ranging space. Before playing on the line Porter 
had seen service in the backfield. But football 

ability knows no bounds, and shifted to the line by 
Coach Stein the stocky lad worked consistently and was 
rewarded with the sweater as a symbol of his good labor. 
He was always fit, and never yet has time been taken 
out for him. 

Miller Hamrick, Guard 

Miller comes of a football family. The previous year 
his little brother Runt was a regular and this year 
Miller by his steady plugging kept the family record 
straight besides adding to his personal glory and that 
of Old Oglethorpe. Miller was the ultra gentleman 
of a gentlemanly squad. In language, playing and all- 
around conduct he was the gentleman athlete. The 
big guard has two more years in which to show his 
class, and we're predicting that they will be as suc- 
cessful as his first. 

Howard Whitehead, Center 

"That Peck Whitehead can play football for my 
nickels," is the verdict of Ira V. Maxwell on the red- 
headed center's work and Mr. Maxwell spoke tersely 
the sentiments of the school. Peck was big enough 
and fast enough to rove around the central parts of the 
line and take care of all drives directed at his guard 
post as well as help out his fellow defenders of the line. 
Looking to you, Redhead, and may you step into many 
another game with Gold and Black teams. 

Clay Parrish, Center 

The boy who filled the hole in the center of the line 
for the Stormy ones did the job to the palate of a 
queen. His passing was as accurate as his tackling — 
deadly is the word. A Freshman making a letter at 
Oglethorpe isn't exactly an unheard of thing, but one 
who puts out a type of ball similar to C ay's is a rar- 
ity. May he be back for manv more years to guard the 
middle cavity.

Review of Football 

'% The Oglethorpe football team of 1922 passed through a unique season. 

The team faced one of the hardest schedules of any Southern team and 
certainly the most difficult ever undertaken by any team of Oglethorpe's 
rating. Ten games were played during the fall with never a let up. Of 
these nine were lost, and a single game was won. 

Enthusiasm reached a high pitch the first week in September when a 
squad of forty candidates reported to Captain Ed David, who took the men 
in charge and put them through a week of conditioning exercises. The 
squad was composed of a goodly number of old men, and quite a few 
promising new ones. It was no weak looking lot of beef and brawn which 
toiled and sweated under the hot September sun to get in shape for the 
coming season. 

September 10th saw Coach Russell Stein instructing his men for the 
first time. Stein was new to Oglethorpe and Oglethorpe was new to Stein, 
but Coach took things in charge and with the help of his able assistant, 
John Browning, he soon had things running smoothly. It was evident that 
Russell Stein knew the game, and it soon became evident that Oglethorpe's 
new corps of coaches would teach the men how to play football. 

It was well that the Petrels had the benefit of excellent instruction for 
Oglethorpe was scheduled to open the season with one of the South's greatest 
teams. The last Saturday in September found Oglethorpe lined up at 
Grant Field ready to open the Atlanta gridiron season with Tech's Golden 
Tornado as the opposition. 

The Tech-Oglethorpe game proved to be a real battle. The Petrels 
showed the effects of excellent coaching and gave Tech a real fight. The 
sporting world at large was startled at the result, for Oglethorpe had scored 
a touchdown on Tech. On a beautiful trick play devised by Coach Stein, 
Adrian Maurer ran 90 yards to a touchdown, slipping through the entire 
Tech team. Maurer became the man of the hour by virtue of this brilliant 
run, and every sport paper in the South proclaimed the fact that he had 
scored Oglethorpe's first touchdown against Tech. The final score was 31 
to 6. 

Alabama came next for the Petrels and the game proved the fact that 
the team which defeated Pennsylvania was no flukey crowd of athletes. 
They ran through and over the Petrels to the score of 41 to 0. As Tod 
Browning said, "It's a good thing that there wasn't a fence around the park 
or they would have pushed it off the map." 


Then Sewanee, coached by Herbert Stein, brother of the Petrel mentor, 
took the Petrel athletes up on their hill and forward-passed them to the 
deathly tune of 21 to 0. 

The fourth game saw Oglethorpe pitted against Furman's Purple Hurri- 
cane. The Furmanites performed as well before an Atlanta crowd as they 
were accustomed to do for the inhabitants of the Spartan City, and hit 
Oglethorpe's line for a 26 to "nary a bit" of scoring on the Petrel side. 

With the Georgia game approaching Oglethorpe boosters began to 
despair, but the team rose to the height of its form and played the Bulldog to 
a standstill. The game ended 26 to 6, Maurer featuring with a beauty of a

Oglethorpe met Trinity at Durham, N. C, and lost 7 to 6. A goal

The only victory of the year for the Gold and Black came when they 
journeyed over to Columbus, and defeated the Camp Benning soldiers 
by the score of 14 to 3. The next week the team suffered a reversal of 
form and lost to Mercer by a three point margin. 

In the final home game of the year Oglethorpe made a gallant fight 
against the Florida Alligator and although the Petrels showed considerable 
strength, Florida pushed over two touchdowns and won 12 to 0. 

In the Turkey day game the Chattanooga Moccasins defeated the Pe- 
trels by one touchdown and the agony was over. 

Measured in terms of games won and lost, Oglethorpe suffered a dis- 
astrous season. But a team's success is determined by many factors. The 
Oglethorpe Petrels gained the respect of every team they played. Ogle- 
thorpe has learned to play the game; she has earned the reputation of hav- 
ing good sportsmen. We have been told that the test of a man is the fight 
he makes. Measured in terms of the fight Oglethorpe has stood the test. 
Certainly the Petrels have played the game, and there is no disgrace in 
honorable defeat. The Petrels have shown that they can be great in de- 

In defeat Oglethorpe has come to be a greatly admired team. The 
sentiments of sport writers throughout the South can be no better expressed 
than to use the words of one of the South's finest sporting writers who in a

"At the Petrel-'Gator Game" 

By Lawrence G. Pfefferkorn. 

Far back in history, we're told 
Of knights who stiniggled fierce and hard, 
Of kings who fought in battles old, 
Their kingdoms mighty wealth to guard. 
Back in those days we also hear 
About the tournaments they held, — 
Lost was the knight to his lady dear. 
Lest some great championship he held. 

We look upon those days gone by, 

And think about today. 
And then we heave a heartfelt sigh, 

'Cause things aint still that way. 

But if a gallant knight could see 

This football game we play. 
He'd cast his steel into the sea. 

To join this present fray. 

Oh. gridiron fan, out there behold. 

The modern tournament, — 
More thrilling than the tilt of old, 

With wounds that made a dent. 

The knights ivould eat and drink their fill. 
And stay out late ivith dames; 

But the gridiron star must curb his ivill. 
That you may see these games. 

So watch them struggle in this fight. 

Just see them offer all. 
Each mans an armoured football knight. 

And you're from Arthur's Hall.

Ford Little 

The big Petrel hurler is a natural leader and his 
good right arm. together with his excellent person- 
ality, boosted Petrel stock in many a game. Ford is 
an easy working man in the box but he makes it 
mighty difficult for opposing batters to connect solidly. 
''Keep 'em in the infield," was his theory and he was 
able to carry it out successfully. He gave his best for 
Oglethorpe and his best was enough to win. 

George Talley 

George accustomed himself to handling Oglethorpe 
money while in the Co-op and then as manager served 
well the Petrel ball players. This managerial busi- 
ness is no man's easy job. but ""Toad"' performed the 
work so carefully and proficiently that players and 
students have voted him a most worthy successor to 
Daddy Price. George took excellent care of his players 
and the cash paid to see them perform. 

John Morris 
Pitcher and Captain-Elect 

Winning seven games out of ten was Jake's record 
for the "22 season. Pitching his second year of Varsity 
ball the blond athlete came into his own and was the 
mainstay of the Petrel pitching staff. Not only can Jake 
throw a mean ball, but also can he be depended upon 
to swat the offerings of opposing boxmen and field his 
position to perfection. His team-mates thought so well 
of his all-round ability that he was elected to the cap- 
taincy for the coming year. 

AM ^ ^ R. A W 

Mark Humphries 

Alark achieved lasting fame by beating Tech in the 
second game of the series for the City Championship. 
Some happy time this may become a regular thing for 
Oglethorpe, but for the present it stands as a feat of 
real importance. Mark has begun properly and those 
who have seen his work know that he will continue in 
the same manner during his remaining three years. 

Frank Simpson 

"Big Simp" is unequaled at two things. The first is 
sitting in the lobby amusing the crowd and the second 
is crouching behind the plate making the team play 
ball. Simp's big bat has sent many balls on the long 
ride, and the way the big fellow handles bunts is a 
beauty worth seeing. Would that he were back for '23! 

Herbert Bryant 

Pug is a natural athlete and baseball is his best game. 
His sharp singles were always a menace to outfielders 
as Pug can stretch a long single into a short double 
by the simple expedient of hastening his feet to far 
better time than the average p'ayer. Because of his 
unusual versatility he performed well behind the bat 
and about the far grasses. Pug was a valuable man on 
the '22 team, and will be even better in his remaining 
duo of seasons. 


A M A C 

Jules Price 
Second Base 

Jules was the most sensational player on the '22 squad. 
His hopping around the midway sack at the close of the 
season would have been a credit to the great Eddie 
Collins. A bit erratic at the introductory part of the 
schedule .lules flashed to anything but an uneven con- 
clusion. He was a speedy man on the paths, and just as 
fast at stopping balls, mis-labeled hits. He expects to 
return for the '23 spring pastime, and from past perform- 
ances will be the last man to be beat out of his job. 

James Partridge 

"J" was picked by sporting writers as the man on the 
the team who showed the most promise of reaching '"big 
time." This was NOT because he displayed inclination 
to push "J" but rather because of all things the team 
stood foremost. "J" is never out of condition, which, 
with his healthy appetite for work, is the reason he shows 
promise of reaching higher baseball ranks. He would 
serve as a pretty good model for aspiring spheroid 

A w If 

Harmon Partridge 
Third Base 

"H," the other half of the left side of the diamond 
combination, was a keen defender of the hot corner. He 
was young at the game, and for that fact deserves the 
more for his showing. Few balls got away from the 
little infielder, and his part in the "H to J to Ed" snap 
was as nice as anything seen about these parts. 

n rf 

Clifford Sims 

The Kid ended his career as a Petrel baseballer by 
driving out a long double. That is the sort of fighter 
Kid is. He never would quit and his old perseverence 
won him many a stroll to the initial canvas-top. As 
lead off man for the Gold and Black his timely bunts, 
with his speed, made him a difficult man to retire. Few 
balls got away from him in the pasture. All in all the 
'"Old Man" was a mainstay in the bunch and his passing 
from Oglethorpe leaves a big place on the team and 
campus to be filled. 

Ross Kemp 
Center fielder 

Ross is that steady-going young man who in the joyous 
Springtime adds to Petrel high spirits by pulling down 
difficult drives from opponents' bats and returns the com- 
plement by sending out still deeper slugs that go for 
hits. In his first year at the Petrel Nest, Ross showed the 
stuff and in the coming seasons under the tutelage of 
Coach Anderson, will go strong toward bringing added 
honors to the Gold and Black. 

Edgar David 
First Base 

Ed's steadying influence pulled the team through many 
a game just as his timely hits and clever fielding flashed 
the Petrels on to the weighty side of the score. He was 
among the chosen few whose batting average topped the 
300 mark. Ed is a natural first baseman with his good 
left arm and ability to spear the high and wide ones. 


Baseball Season Review 

|HE team which wins a third of its road games is due a championship," 
is an accepted baseball maxim. In line with the above we would say 
that the Petrel nines of coming years should lay claim to many of those 
"Best collegiate team in the South," banners. 
=^ Due to the incompleteness of its own park the schedule called 
for twenty-one games off the campus and but one on Hermance Field. Working 
against such odds the fighting Birds won nine of those twenty-one games, and don't 
forget the fact that not one was a set-up affair. On the home field the team won 
from Wofford, in probably the best game of the year. 

Journeying Athens-ward the last week in March, the Georgia outfit, which ul- 
timately won the Southern Championship, won the first contest of the year from 
Mark Humphries by the score of 4 to 1. The next day the Bulldog scratched out 
seven Petrel feathers and kept its own defensive hairs intact. Including Freshmen, 
and the occupants of the Infirmary, only twelve students missed the second game 
and the taste of defeat was lessened by a taste of the good spirits offered by the Red 
and Black winners. 

Next meeting the Camp Banning infantrymen, the Gold and Black players lost 
the opener to the discord of 4 to 3, but evened the bill by heading out in the next 
day's aff'air and pulling through to a 5 to 3 win. The soldiers had a nice working 
outfit and the break-getting was the final margin in both days' meetings. 

After these preliminary encounters, the ballsters left on the longest and most 
difficult part of their schedule. First stopping at Spartanburg, S. C, they lost the 
opener to Wofford but Mark Humphries tossed unbeatable ball the next day. Result: 
Oglethorpe, 6; Wofford, 2. At Lynchburg College Jake Morris aided by his team- 
mates' long traveling hits won out with a three run margin. Captain Little lost a 
heart-breaker to V. M. I., the Cadets taking apt advantage of an Oglethorpe bobble 
and winning 2 to 1. The game scheduled with Washington and Lee was rained out 
but the men made good use of the rest day by getting well primed for the University of 
Virginia. Meeting the Virginians at Charlottesville with Morris and Humphries 
doing the flinging on successive days, the Cracker Staters won twice. The Petrels 
lost the last game of their trip to Richmond University, the Spiders bunching their 
hits when hits meant counters. 8 to 5 was the final score. If winning four out of 
seven from such opponents isn't playing baseball the Giants never won a series 
from the Yanks. 

On April 19th the Petrels defeated Wofford in the first inter-collegiate contest 
Jield on Hermance Field. Played on a damp diamond the affair was the most 
spectacular brand of ball that even the most thrill-loving could demand. Jake 
Morris was doing mound duty for the home bunch, and doing so well that at the 
opening of the ninth the count was 2 and 1, the Stormy Ones leading. And then — 
blooey! Wofford had the bags covered with her men. Bloohooey! they were gone 
and Oglethorpe had won! The Petrels had pulled a triple play. It is campus 
talk till now. 

After the big home coming, the Petrels left on their second long flight. This 
trip was Southward, and the further toward the equator they flew the hotter their 
receptions became. Ford Little lost a ten-inninger to Alabama, on the lot where 

¥ A M A C R A W 

Riggs Stephenson and the Sewell brothers formerly cavorted, but Jake Morris 
turned the Crimsonites away to the recall of 5 to 3 on the following afternoon. 
Mississippi A. and M. grabbed the first of a two time series, 2 runs being enough, 
the Petrel hitters being able to push over only one tally. But the Petrel aggregation 
staged a comeback in the second encounter and behind Jake's steady pitching led 
at the finish 4 and 2. Taking on the Mississippi College nine the Petrels received 
the surprise of their ball-playing lives when the 'Sippians slipped two straight by 
displaying a smart class of ball and taking advantage of every break. 

Jake Morris ran his string of victories up to seven when the team ran away 
from Dahlonega, and left the Aggies at the tail end of a 6 to 2 count. It was a 
nicely played game, but the Farmers were well outclassed by Coach Anderson's 

The final dish on the Petrel menu for the '22 season was the three-game series 
with Tech on which depended the City Championship. It had been an "on and 
off" year for the North Avenue nine and predicting the winner wasn't exactly a 
unanimous vote for Tech. However, with a more experienced bunch they were 
conceded a clear edge. It required the three full games to award the crown, and 
the sting of the Yellow Jacket was more apt at winning two of them than the speed 
of the Petrel. Sunshine Thompson worked for Tech in the opener and aided by 
a most uncalled-for blow-up by Oglethorpe won 10 and 3. Mark Humphries did 
his duty for the Gold and Black by pitching this team to a 6 to 3 win in the second. 
In the third Jake tried a comeback but his backers in the field again flared and 
Tech took the game and Championship. 

Despite the defeats by Tech the season was successful. Eight of '22's letter 
men return for the coming year and to take over one infield vacancy there stands 
Adrian Maurer, the outstanding football figure of Georgia, who was ineligible for 
'22. Promising scrubs including Hope, Harmon, Porter and Hammel, who caught 
in the Tech series, all return as well as Red Cox and Feets Collier, the latter two 
getting into several games. Lefty Willis will be eligible and should come through 
for the Varsity pitching staff. 

'23 promises much for Oglethorpe baseball. 





The keynote of the Petrel track squad for the season was that all- 
embracing word. 

Two men stood legs and shoulders above the rank and file of Southern 
track men in 1922, and these men, Red Ivey, captain and sprinter, and 
Tiny Roberts, weight and discus manipulator, took places for the Stormy 

These two stars, aided by the Tucker brothers, Weyman and Quigg, 
and Snead, provided a really colorful squad. They were small in num- 
bers but mighty in their efforts during the year. 

Particularly in the Georgia State Meet held at Emory did the men 
in the golden jerseys show enormous quantities of stuff. In this meet 
Red Ivey took the hundred and the two-twenty for the second time in 
consecutive years and Tiny Roberts, in his first collegiate meet set new 
records for the 16-pound pill and the discus. In the jumps and vaults the 



Tuckers and Snead went along in neat form. With these men taking points 
in pleasing fashion the team took fourth place in the meet. 

In the Southeastern Amateur Athletic Association Meet which was held 
in Atlanta, Tiny threw the shot for the exact number of feet that there 
are letters in the title of that great event — exactly forty-two feet, and then 
sent the discus whirling for a cool hundred and thirty-two feet. Both of 
these efforts gave the Oglethorpe giant first places, and established new 
records for the S. E. A. A. A.; all of which aren't bad results for the man 
and his Alma Mater. 

At the Birmingham Invitation Meet both of the Oglethorpe entries 
went to the finals and placed. 

There is not a need for comment on the track team. The athletes have 
said their bit with points. 

Their motto was, "Opera non Verba."

Tennis Review 

THE year 1922 proves that Oglethorpe has gone out for tennis 
and that from now on it will be a sport of importance at Petrel- 

While the part played by the Gold and Black racket-wielders 
in the tournaments could not be called a considerable success, the fact that 
the team members and the enthusiasts in general took to the game so strongly 
under most trying conditions led the Athletic Powers Which Be to con- 
struct three new courts. This is the record which the '23 players leave 
behind them. The courts which are now available are the result of the 
labor of the players who stuck to their playing on one miserable court. 
With the added impetus of more and better playing surfaces Petrel tennis 
players of the future have every opportunity to make good. 

The Annual Tournament was not held until the latter part of the season 
and to select the men who should represent the school in the matches which 
were near. Coach Anderson appointed Edgar Watkins. In the Georgia 
State Tournament Bill Gordy entered the singles and Edgar Watkins with 
Walter Gordy formed the doubles team. The players did not reach the 
finals but gave a thoroughly good account of themselves, particularly Bill 
Gordy who lost to Orton Blake, the S. I. A. A. champion. After an ab- 
breviated tournament the four men who were to represent the school against 
the University of North Carolina were selected, the Gordys, Campbell and 
Ives placing. 

Carolina had defeated Tech on the preceding day but the results of 
the hard scrap seemed nil as they went through the Oglethorpe team with- 
out the loss of a match. Walter "Frog" Gordy was the outstanding player 
of the Gold and Black contingent when he carried Cox, the best of the 
Carolina men, to the full three sets in a great match. 

And then came the Tournament. Although the draw was not ceded 
and several probable semi-finalists met in the earlier rounds, the yearly 
event lacked no end of color and good matches. "Frog" Gordy won the 


M A C R A 

^ n.-^ 

singles in an uphill fight from his little brother Bill. Five times Frog had 
Bill at set point before he won the crown and the fighting of the last few 
points was typical of the whole tournament. Candler Campbell and Bill 
Gordy met the Gordy-Ives team in the finals for the double teams and 
the former pair won out in a match featured by the terrific service of Camp- 
bell. The tournament was a decided success both from number of contest- 
ants and quality of play and sportsmanship. 

In the S. I. A. A. tournament the winners of the school tournament 
played and this coming the day after the local finals the Petrels found the 
pace too fast and none proceeded very far. For their play in the season 
the two Gordys, Campbell and Ives received their "0" 's. The year of 
1923, with the new courts, Ives, Frog Gordy and Campbell back, and with 
Sidney Ives as manager, holds much for tennis at Oglethorpe. 

It Can Be Done 

Somebody said that it couldnt be done, 

But he, with a chuckle, replied 
That ''Maybe it couldnt," but he would be one 

Who wouldnt say so till he'd tried. 
So he buckled right in, with 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 couldnt 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 you tackle the thing 

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

Petrel Pugs 

NDER the able tutelage of "Jake" Sartaine the Petrel Pugs devel- 
oped so rapidly in the gentle art of hit and take that it was neces- 
sary to stage elimination bouts after three months of instruction 
to determine the school champion. 
It is the task of the champions thus determined to uphold the prestige 
of Oglethorpe University in the amateur boxing world. 

Among the heavyweights, "Tiny" Roberts had very little opposition 
existing in his class. His one opponent fell by the wayside via "Tiny's" 
good left jab. 

One of the likeliest looking men to come out for boxing was that 
glutton for punishment, "Truckhorse" Porter. Truck possesses speed, a 
punch, courage and as much stamina as the average half dozen men. "Iron 
Man" Porter would be a better name for him. He won his crown handily. 


? y' .-,. M A- 

absorbing all the punishment that "Vic" could hand out, then rocking his 
opposition to sleep with a snappy right cross. 

Pug Bryant just naturally uppercut his way to a cleancut decision over 
Fred Lawrence, the runnerup for welterweight honors. Pug is one of the 
mainstays in Oglethorpe athletics, being a keen football and baseball player. 

"Goober" Brown was too fast and clever for the lightweights. He would 
fight like a wildcat when cornered. Here's hoping that he displays the 
same sjjirit in the battles of life. Now tliat he is no longer with us at Ogle- 
thorpe his picture is not appended. 

"Red" Ivey! Who in the South hasn't heard the name of this little 
athlete? No featherweight had the necessary stuff to face this animated 
buzz saw, in a fifteen-foot squared circle. Red's crown is none the less 
deserved, because of his inability to secure an opponent. 

Little bald-headed "Ham Gravy" Hamilton nearly killed "Rat" Morgan 
before the Rat would relinquish his claim to the bantam title. "Ham" has 
speed — lots of it and combines with tliat a courage of Richard Coeur de 
Lion. He fights best when the odds are against him, and the word "Quit" 
was left out of his make-up and vocabulary. 

If these boys improve as rapidly this year as they did the past year 
this write-up will not suffice for the 1924 Yamacraw.

Basket-Bail Review 

O-ED basket-ball has now been definitely established as one 

of the major sports at Oglethorpe. The Athletic Committee of 

the University has agreed to support the team. Basket-ball 

was the Co-ed's first athletic endeavor and has been veiy success- 

On account of not having a court at the University, practices were held 
at the North Avenue Presbyterian School court under the direction of Head 
Coach Anderson, and Assistant Coaches, Stevens and Parrish. 

The Co-eds were late getting started this year and no definite schedule 
was arranged. Mary Bell Nichols was elected Captain of the team, Christine 
Gore alternate, and Alice Stewart, manager. The members of the team were: 
Mary Bell Nichols, Alice Stewart, Christine Gore, Elizabeth Broughton, 
Louise McCammon, Lillian McCammon, Carol Gilford, and Dorothy Foster. 


The Stormy Petrel 

The mantle of midnight enshrouds thy lost path. 

The tempest forbids thee thy way; 
The hoarse-throated thundercloud shouts in his wrath 

That the whirlwind ivill work thee delay. 
Yet, ever, thy udngs break the will of the foam. 

The lightnings are lanterns to thee; 
Thou makest the deep-hollowed billows thy home, 

Thy table the breast of the sea. 

Dost glean thy scant pittance in wake of the gale, 

Thy crumbs from the hurricane's board. 
Dost hold thy faith firm when the hearts of men fail; 

Quailest not tho the life-boats are lowered. 
The dust of the tempest is thick on thy path. 

The surges seek ever thy form, 
But thine is the marvelous power he hath ^ 

Who rideth the wings of the storm. 

swifter than tempest, stronger than boat, 

braver than men at their prayers. 
Alone on the waste of the waters, afloat 

In the night, yet a stranger to cares; 
Dost ask for no shelter, dost plead for no haven. 

Dost pray not thy fates as they spin, 
For thou, unto tvhom most of storm has been given. 

Most of peace hast been able to win.

. I HE product of Oglethorpe University is its 
II Alumni. Concerning our Alumni we have deep 
feelings of pride and gratitude. Their success 
in life, the high positions to which they have already 
risen, their loyalty and devotion to their Alma Mater, 
and their manifest ability to give more than a good 
account of themselves all make us feel very grateful. 
This annual is edited and managed entirely by the 
Senior Class of 1923. Of them, also, we are proud 
and of the work that they have done in presenting this 
year's YAMACRAW to the public. 

It is for them and their successors and predecessors 
that we have constructed and are constructing these 
wonderful Oglethorpe buildings and have gathered the 
really unusual faculty which has instructed them dur- 
ing their college days on our campus. We are pleased 
with their work, not only, but most of all with them- 

And we would also welcome and appreciate your
