Gentle and appreciative reader, the task
of disarming criticism is fruitless. We do
not ask you to praise this book, and we
do not seek honor for an unappreciated
work, because then the world would only
give us pity. But when time, that inevit-
able promoter of old age, has added many
years to your life, and you can glance
through this book, and have again those
youthful dreams, and live and feel again
that close, binding friendship toward man-
kind which you felt while in college, then
our task will seem to us a success. If, on
the other hand, you pick up this book, and
while turning its pages do not have fond
reminiscences of college days, we will con-
sider our work unsuccessful.

The Ogletkorpe Woman's Board
OMEN have always wanted to be a large part in the making
of great dreams, so it was in January 1917 the Woman's
Board of Oglethorpe was organized by a group of sixty
women. This unique organization has now grown to a
number beyond three hundred. It is an institution es-
tablished as a natural co-worker with the Board of
Founders of the university, but its aim is to supply the
Someone expressed a thought to this effect, "If I had only two loaves
of bread, I would sell one of them to buy hyacinths for my soul". The
Woman's Board is providing the young men and women of Oglethorpe with
the beautiful things, furnishing a delicate nourishment for their souls.
There is hardly an activity of Oglethorpe which does not find inspira-
tion in the spontaneous support so generously offered by this group of
noble women. The Woman's Board is divided into committees, each re-
presenting some particular phase of endeavor at the university. The or-
chestra, the infirmary, and the campus find special care in the hands of
these splendid women. The Players' Club, the football team, and the co-ed
basketball team have all known the thrill from the genuine interest taken
The personnel of the Woman's Board are leaders in the religious,
patriotic, civic, and social life of Atlanta; tliey are friends who are build-
ing Oglethorpe in a hundred ways. A beautiful sentiment is one expressed
by Mrs. Katherine Connerat, President of the Board, "Oglethorpe Univer-
sity looms large on the educational horizon, and in proportion to its growth,
the mother board will enlarge its scope of usefulness."
Oh Woman! Mighty mother
Of lis all,
Custodian of eternal love; joyful
In the doing of things great
Embracing all, thy strong arm
Binds us close with subtle ties.
To pay our tribute, and receive
Thy gentle touch
More delicate than the soft rose petals
■ And quite as sweet.
To those in need of thee.
Senior Class History
IME in its ceaseless passage leaves along its trails scattered frag-
ments that tell of a once living present that has blended itself
with the past, that awful depository of the dead. In whatever
time, under whatever circumstances, he may live, it is the duty
of the historian faithfully to gather these scattered fragments
together and weave them candidly into a true story that shall
depict to the world the time of which he writes; not alone of
its glories, its achievements, or its possible reverses, but also of
the latent causes that have wrought out these results.
So kind reader let us go back to the fall of 1920, and I am sure that the theory
of evolution will receive new support from the history of this class, for who would
recognize the seniors of today as the freshmen of 1920.
In the beginning there were 112, the largest freshman class in the history of
the school. They were mere college lads four years ago; now they are ready to
enter the battle of life, well-equipped for its struggle and armed with the most
powerful weapon of warfare, intellectual training and culture.
As beginners, we began early to endear ourselves in the hearts of the student
body and the followers of the greatest college in the south, as David, Morris, Ivey,
Whitehead, Bartenfeld, Adams, McGarrity, and Stephens were introduced to the
Collegiate world by their work on the football team. The first resemblance of a
track team for Oglethorpe was ushered into existence by Freshman Stephens and Ivey.
Our girls were active in the literary world, and Miss Helen Bagley and Miss
Virginia Pairo were rewarded for their services by a place in the cast of the Ogle-
thorpe Players Club.
In baseball we were well represented on the varsity by our classmates, David,
Morris, Hafele, Adams, Jones and Thaxton all stars of the first water.
In our sophomore year we returned about 75 members. Others had fallen
by the wayside, due to the financial crisis that engulfed the South in the summer and
fall. To those who have already cast themselves upon the world we extend a cordial
hand of brother-hood, and hope for them that brilliant success they are so earnestly
Ralph Sinclair, Bill Cox, Al Smith and Miss Lucy Pairo joined us in the fall
and have proved valuable additions to the class of '24.
We were even more prominent in the athletic world in our sophomore year
than in the year before; David, Morris, Whitehead, Bartenfeld, Stephens, Jacobs,
Hafele and Ivey were members of the football squad. Stephens and Ivey, assisted
by Cobb, were members of the track team. Ivey was Captain of the first track and
field team that the University put out. Bryant joined David and Morris on the
baseball team, and has proven to be one of the best catchers that we have had.
In the fall of '22 we lost several of our most valuable members; these boys
were rewarded for their diligent work, and were allowed to migrate to the class of
'23. Those taking the forward step were Lawrence, Burton, Frazer, Jacobs, High-
tower, Watkins, Copeland, Hollingsworth, Johnson, Kersey, Stafford and Cobb.
This year we furnished the football team with Capt. David, Morris, Barten-
feld, Whitehead, Hafele, Stephens, Campbell and Brown. On the track were Ivey
and Tucker. Campbell was a member of the tennis team; Red Frazer was captain of
the Cross Country team; and Morris was captain of the baseball team and was
ably supported by Bryant and David. Gladys Crisler and Virginia Pairo were
members of the Oglethorpe Players Club.
In this our last year we received into our class Otis Jackson, Harry Teasley,
Walter Gordy, Finch Scruggs, Wisdom O'Neal, Lawrence and Robert Pfefferkorn,
Misses Christine Gore, Mattie White Kellam, and Elizabeth Broughton.
On the football team were Capt. Brown, Campbell, David, Morris, Barten-
feld. Whitehead, Stephens, Ivey and Gordy. Misses Kellam, Gore and Broughton are
mainstays on the girls basketball team. Jackson is President of the Players Club,
and will be supported by Misses Broughton, Pairo Sisters, Kellam, and Crisler.
Capt. Bryant and Morris will see that we are well represented in baseball.
In scholastic standing we are especially proud of Miss Crisler, Al Smith,
Lawrence Pfefferkorn and Wisdom 0"Neal, for they have attained the highest
honors that the University can bestow upon her sons and daughters. They are
wearers of the Coat-of-Arms. Miss Crisler, Jackson, McMekin, David, L., Pfeffer-
korn and Brown are members of Honorary Fraternities.
The end of college days must inevitably come, and the class of '24 faces the
future with no misgivings. Grateful to our Alma Mater for its invaluable educa-
tional training, bound to each professor by the ties of endearing friendship, we
shall soon go forth to earn a reputation for ourselves.
The passing years will no doubt bring many changes. The raven locks will
soon be silvered by the frost of time; the sparkling eyes will be dimmed; the noble
brows will be furrowed; and the strong limbs will be enfeebled, but throughout all
changes, the memories of our college days will remain fragrant and refreshing.
The members of the class of '24 will go into different fields of labor, will
be separated by many miles of space, and, no doubt, many will never again meet. Yet
in the after years, as memory turns their thoughts backward to the days of long
ago, they will all respond in the words of the immortal bard:
"Let fate do her ivorst, there are relics of joy;
Bright dreams of the past ivhich she cannot destroy;
Which come in the night-time of sorrow and cares
And bring back the features that joy used to tvear;
Long, long be my heart ivith such memories filled.
Like the vase in ivhich roses have once been distilled.
You may break, you may shatter the vase if you tvill.
But the scent of the roses ivill hang to it still"
— R. 0. BROWN, Senior Class Historian.

SENIOR CLASS POEM
Dreamer, 'tis Morning,
And the hour to achieve!
But the pink flush of daivning
Reveals you in ease.
The webs you've been weaving are mystic and wise
Too fragile, too sacred, too high — to despise.
Awake, do you say
From my making of dreams?
Awake from Utopia Isle?
With my dreams a poet, a visionist, I
Without, unpatterned clay.
So Truth and Reality away!
'Tis Morning, I say.
And the thrush calls his mate.
And the sunlight unravels your spell.
The pictures you've painted.
The castles you've built
Like the latent seed in the shell
Lie dormant ivithin!
For what good if they be not real.
And to what purpose if they come not true?
So Dreamer, awake and achieve!

"Peggy" admits that he was born and raised in the
sunny little Georgia town of Chipley, and it was there
that he learned to be such an industrious salesman. Be-
sides being a good salesman, O'Neal is a good sport
with the girls, having one as his real sweetheart, who
tells him that his mustache is the cutest thing. He is
one of the most industrious men in our class. If you
ever happened around you would find him busily en-
gaged at something. He is ne.ver idle. He won the
Oglethorpe Coat-of-Arms, which is the highest honor
that the school can bestow upon her sons. This is
proof of "Peggy's" initiative, and argues well for his
Candler was born, bred and still lives in Marietta.
He makes us think that he doesn't care much for the
fair sex, but a fellow with that slow winning smile that
he possesses, just can't keep away from them. When
you meet blonde-headed Campbell, and that smile is
cast upon you, you know that behind it is sincerity and
a heart as true as gold. He is quiet in manner, but
once in action he is all life, as he has proven by his
magnificent two year career on the gridiron. Life is
yours Chandler, and we know that you will make it
more than worth while.

"Dock"' is the boy that said. ".\11 grades over

he really means this or not. but if he does, he is very
wasteful of his energy, sometimes. He is a quiet boy,
but he is not a bit domesticated, for it is with frequency
that we see him parading up and down Peachtree. We
have often wondered if he was trying to sheik the girls,
or just walking to pass the time away until a certain
very popular show opened.
"Dock" is the familiar little figure sitting in the
corner of the lobby early every morning, smiling to him-
self at some remarks made by the leading members of

of happiness will be yours.

genial and optimistic disposition, and a fervent believer
in his masticating powers. He is contented to take
things as they come, without a murmur of rejection or
approval. He knows that life runs on whet-her the state
of affairs is positive or negative. He is an unique figure
in the class of '24, and it is evident that he will in the
future, as he has been in the past, not be contented
to be just like other men. Old Boy. your classmates
wish you much success in life. Good luck.

Paul loves Oglethorpe so well that his home is near
the campus. If he proves to be as good and as faithful
a son to his Alma Mater as his dad is a father, then we
know that old Oglethorpe will be known the world
around. Paul is a student, for ever since he started

knowledge. His activities were never confined to the
classroom, for he handles women with the inborn talent
of a genius. He is very gentle and thoughtful, and al-

Oh Lucy, why do you bother with all the chemistry
in school? Come, find that bottles are for exquisite per-
fumes and not for acids. Live up to your French name
and your seminary training "tis no use. Lucy
makes an alchemist the hero to her romantic play, to be
produced by the Oglethorpe Players, and when one mixes
chemistry and lore, an explosion will surely follow.
When Lucy talks her voice is so smooth and soft that
one is reminded of spring, flowers, birds, etc. She is
rather romantic, anyway, but she wouldn't admit it for
anything. Although she leads somewhat of a dreamy
existence, her mind is always well posted on deeper
subjects, such as her books. As we part, Lucy, we wish

Junior Class History
Quality not quantity makes a city or a nation great. The present
Junior class is a quality class; of one hundred and ten freshmen only thirty-
two remain, but twenty-four of these participate in recognized student activi-
Eight of our class are letter men in football, seven in baseball, and
two in track. Roberts holds the S. I. A. A. Tucker holds the state record for
tlie pole vault and the high jump.
Have you ever heard of this combination before? The same man be-
ing chosen in a Who's Who election as the best athlete, the most popular,
and the most modest. This unique honor was conferred upon Adrian
Maurer. "A fine football player, but a finer man," said Ed. Danforth,
sporting editor of the Atlanta Georgian.
The Junior class does not confine itself to athletics; four members of
this class took leading parts in the Spring production of the Oglethorpe
The success of the Petrel is largely due to the Junior class, as both
the editor and business manager were juniors. Under the efficient editor-
ship of Pen Robertson, the Petrel issued a twenty-page paper for the further-
ance of the Oglethorpe Memorial Campaign.
Eighteen members of the Junior class are paying their own expenses
at college. These men, who number represents more than half of the class,
are employed in positions ranging from waiters at the university to corres-
pondents of Atlanta papers.
It is the hope of the Junior class, that in spite of its small number it
may continue, as a senior class, to take its part in the work tliat makes a
college year a successful one.

Sopnomore Class History
WE remember when we were freshmen? Of course we
could not easily forget it in this brief lengtli of time, and
so firmly was the fact impressed upon us that we were
freshmen that it will remain vivid in our minds for many
years to come.
It was in September 1922, that our class of eighty
members first gazed upon the gray buildings of Gothic architecture of
Oglethorpe. We had assembled from North, South, East and West, but
this mattered not — we were freshmen and might just as well have come from
the Emerald Isles. The Sophomores lost little in impressing our freshness
After furnishing the Sophomores two weeks of rare entertainment we
n to realize the reason for our bein"
old battle of education against ignorance.
began to realize the reason for our being in college, so we began the age-
While we were not the largest freshman class to enter Oglethorpe we
were perhaps one of the livliest. We were soon represented in nearly
every phase of college activity, furnishing three members each to the
baseball and football teams, and having two men who won the Tennis
championship for the '23 season. We were also well represented in the
orchestra and on the debating team.
When we returned as sophomores, we found that the freshmen out-
numbered us three to one. As dignified Sophomores, we naturally felt that
we should exercise some authority over our lower classmen, remembering
our treatment at the hands of the Sophomores the previous year. However,
when we attempted to exercise this authority, the "battle of the century"
ensued, the results of which are too well known to need repeating; and as
you know, twice told tales are uninteresting.
It would be a strange phenomenon, indeed, if some class historian
should fail to mention that his class was the best in school. We do not
claim this distinction for the class of '26, but we do claim that this class
has always exemplified the best side of the Oglethorpe spirit — that side
which stands for higher and better ideals.

Freskman Class History
Y HE school year of 1923-'24 opened its doors and extended
a hearty welcome to the largest Freshman class in the his-
tory of Oglethorpe University, the number of freshies be-
ing one hundred and thirty-six. Although the largest, it
was also the freshest. On entering the stately halls of
Oglethorpe our hearts sank, because thinking we knew it
all, we found we knew nothing.
Upon finding that we were so green and ignorant it was then only natural
that we settle down in search of knowledge. Starting on this road of life we
were first greeted and given a touching welcome by our stem superiors, the
Sophomores. They led us to the bar of justice, where we were given our
instructions, as well as our punishment.
Our first meeting was held in Lupton Hall in October. There we elected
class officers, who were Alton Redf ern, Pres. ; Clarence West, Vice-Pres., and
Elizabeth Hope, Secretary and Treasurer. Unfortunately we lost both our
President and Vice-President, so were forced to elect new officrs. The newly
elected officers were Edward Miles, President; Kenneth Campbell, Vice-Pres.
We hope and believe however, that our first officers will rejoin us next year.
On October the annual minstrel of the freshies was put over, with Jake
Semon and Charley Barber starring. No egotism, but it must have been ex-
ceptionally good, because the Sophomores, along with the faculty, agreed
that it was a delightful performance, showing diligent study and work on the
part of those performing.
At Oglethorpe the Freshmen share an equal part of the glory in one de-
partment, athletics. Justus, Carroll, Albaugh, Campbell, and Hardin won
their letter in football. O'Dwyer, Redf em, Slayton, Chestnut, and Cousins
ably presented our class on the scrub team. Misses Leila Barden, Theodosia
Beckham, Imogene Camp, and Sarah Magill represented the freshmen on the
co-ed basketball team. Rumor has it that the freshmen will likewise be well
represented in baseball and track.
In the South's best college orchestra are found Freshmen Barber, Semon,
Wyly, Thompson, Drummer, Gibson, and HoUoway. The freshmen will
also supply the wants and wishes of the sophomores by sending many
natural but inexperienced dramatic stars to the Players Club.
It did not take us long to love our Alma Mater, and to gain, the true
Oglethorpe spirit. We admit that we knew very little and were very green
when we matriculated, but under the influential hand and unerring eye of
the wise Sophs, we are now proud to say that we are all "set for the races"
for the ensuing year.
Our Alma Mater
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater
Fair and exalted thy name shall be!
Lo, thy sons and daughters praise thee.
Hail, all HAIL TO Ogletlwrpe!
Children, we, of noble mothers.
Loyal and faithful in serving thee;
Sharers of thy fame and glory.
Hail, all HAIL TO Oglethorpe!
Dear and good the days thou gavest,
Under the Old Gold and Black tvith thee.
Full of all life's deepest lessons.
Hail, all HAIL TO Oglethorpe!
Thy sweet memory shall folloiv.
Gently to bless us forever more.
In our lives thou livest ever.
Alma Mater, Oglethorpe!
Coach Robertson came to the Petrels from Dartmouth College, where he had been a star
football player for several years. He had had one year of experience as an assistant coach at
his Alma Mater. He turned out to be the most popular coach, as a whole, to guide the destinies
of the Petrels, up to date. Not only did Coach Jim know the game as well as any of them, but
he stood for the right sort of thing. He instilled into his men a' fine fighting spirit, and coupled
this fighting spirit with a spirit of sportsmanlike play. His team was taught to fight hard, but
to play the game like men. His season was a successful one, and it could certainly be expected
since he instructed the men in such tactics. With Coach Robertson back as head coach, the
Oglethorpe team has every reason to expect better results next fall.
As assistant to Coach Robertson, Tod rendered tlie same fine sort of service that character-
ized his first year here. He instructed the linesmen in the fine points of the game, and it was a
well coached line that was representing the Petrels in the majority of the games. It was
Browning's second year as assistant coach and his work was of the finest type.
The job of chasing loose pigskins, rounding up
head-gears, and all the other odds and ends that go with
the managing a football team is no small task, and the
managing of a college grid team deserves more credit
than is ordinarily given to such a personage. Rich Mar-
tin proved to be a very efficient manager during the
past season, and he handled the job well. Rich stuck
by his men through the year and accorded them every
favor that he could render. Much deserves to be said
to his credit.
CAPTAIN "JUG" BROWN
"Jug" Brown led the best team that Oglethorpe
University ever put on the gridiron. It is safe to say
this about the team of 1923. "Jug" Brown's reward
was the reward of a man who remained faithful. The
leader of last year's team served three years as a lowly
scrub before he finally came into his own and reaoed
the benefit of the man who never quits. Few men at
Oglethorpe ever dreamed that some day the scrappy
little scrub end would ever have the honor of captaining
the varsity team. Often it is the case, that a man of
fighting disposition and not so much of the brilliant
in his makeup makes the best leader. "Jug" was a
good, steady player, who never was particularly a star,
but who never played a bad game. But his claim to
fame in the annals of Oglethorpe's football history lies
in the fact that he possessed the disposition to set a
good example for his men. Brown led, and he led
well. Our hats are off to the doughty captain of 1923.
CAPTAIN-ELECT ADRIAN MAURER
The shining light of the past two seasons is the
honor that goes to Mkurer. Wherever Oglethorpe's
Stormy Petrels played throughout the season the name
of Maurer was on the tongues of the fans weeks in ad-
vance. Every team was watching him, and he was a
marked man every time he stepped on the field. Be
that as it may, Adrian was a star in practically every
game. Maurer coupled the ability of a star with the
lieart of a fighter. Had it not been for his courageous
heart. Adrian Maurer could never have gone through
such a season in the brilliant style in which he did. fiis
individual performance in the Mercer game will ever
live in the minds of those who saw the battle as one
of the greatest pieces of work ever seen on a football
field. A star, yet modest in the extreme with a fine
spirit and natural love for the game, it was but just
tliat Maurer should lead the Petrels in 1924. Luck to
>ou old boy.
Halfback and End
Ed David was the man in the pinch in 1923. Four
years this fine player has been a member of the varsity
team. He was one time a captain and a good one. It
was said of him by his coach at the close of his year as
captain of the Petrels that no finer leader ever graced
a southern gridiron than Ed David. Oglethorpe men
have come to know him as that kind of a man. For
three years Ed played end and starred in that position.
Then his fourth year the new men began to crowd him
for the flank job, and Ed was shifted to the backfield
just in time to play a brilliant game against the Georgia
Bulldogs. He suffered some from injuries through the
season, but he got in practically all of the games, and
played the same consistent brand of ball that has marked
his work at Oglethorpe. He finished the year playing
fullback, in the final game. David did much to make
Oglethorpe known in the athletic world. We need more
The Rube is another of these four year men. His
first two years in college he played center, and the last
two he was seen at tackle. Rube was a fighter and a
good player. He went into the Tech game, the first
battle of the season, and played nearly half of the fray
without having been in a single scrimmage in the prac-
tice season. This sort of thing characterized Barten-
feld's play the whole four years. He was for Oglethorpe
first, and the good of his team was always uppermost
in his thoughts.
Candler is another man who has played his
last game for the Petrels. He served the team in the
capacity of guard his last two years on the squad. His
first two seasons he tried out for end. His weight and
ruggedness caused the coaches to move him in to the
center of the line. He was the fastest guard on the
team, and this speed was one of the outstanding points
of his play. He could go down under punts with the
best of them, and he was a ferocious open field tackier.
Injuries handicapped him in many games, but one could
never tell it from the way he played the game.
"Nutty" is a brother of Candler, and, from the be-
ginning he has made, it would seem that he will uphold
the family name satisfactorily for the next three years.
This little back was a freshman who had many obstacles
to remove before he found his varsity place. A varsity
quarter and an older head at the game kept him off the
varsity for the first part of the year. His gameness and
knack for directing the team strategically finally won
out. He got many hard knocks but always came up and.
incidentally, he played a most prominent part in the
success of the team.
Carrol is another freshman who made the team in
his initial year. He exhibited good form in the early
season practices, but did not have sufficient experience
to warrant starting him in the varsity games. It did
not take him long to get this training, and once he got
started in a battle he justified the confidence the coach-
es placed in him. He gives promise of being a very
valuable man in the future.
^^ ^ - ■ — 1- - ^.1 II . JI M , -i/—^-.^ s=^
"Blondie" started the Tech game in the role of
field general. The injuries received in this game put
him out for a couple of weeks, and when he came back
he was shifted to halfback. He was a fast, shifty run-
ner, and a fine defensive back. He proved very valuable
on many occasions and since last year was his first as
a member of the team he has some time to play yet.
More will be heard of his work in the future.
Crowe was one of the most valuable linesmen on
the varsity squad last season. He had the ability to
play guard, tackle, and end. It was in this latter posi-
tion that he saw the larger part of service, and oppos-
ing backs found it hard to get around his flank. Crowe
has always been a hard fighter and he has his heart in
the battle, a factor which counts much on the football
field. He has another year, and it should be his best
This old boy was one of the most rugged and de-
pendable linesmen on the squad. Serving his second
year on the team he met the charges of the opposition
with a stubborn front. He was also adept at making
holes in the opposing line. He still has a lot of service
in his rugged frame, and the Petrels are fortunate to
have a call on his services for the next two years.
It took Frog Gordy three years to arrive at his
real form, but when he did finally find himself he ar-
rived with a bang. Walt was second only to Maurer in
point of brilliancy during the season. He gained more
ground than any other back, with the exception of
Maurer, and yet in spite of this ability to tear off the
yardage, "Frog" has never made a touchdown for Ogle-
thorpe. He could rip the line and skirt the ends with
equal cleverness. He had few peers among southern
halfbacks. Here is hoping that you make that touch-
down in 1924, "Frog". Gordy is alternate-captain for
the season of '24.
MILLER HAM RICK
When "Gus" Hamrick came to Oglethorpe he had
never had on a football uniform, but he had the willing-
ness to learn. This fact, coupled with his physical
power, soon made him a place on the varsity squad. He
is a letter man of two years standing. Always a hard,
clean fighter. Miller has been a credit to the Petrels,
and his work at guard has at times bordered on the
brilliant. He is the steady kind of player who never
causes the coaches any worry.
If Bob kilgore had played in no other game than
the Mercer encounter he would have aided the Ogle-
thorpe season materially. For the outcome of the Mer-
cer game meant largely succes sor failure of the season,
and Bob added the extra point after Maurer's touch-
down that meant victory. With the score a tie and
only a few minutes left to play, Kilgore put the ball
squarely through the uprights, and Oglethorpe won the
most coveted game of the year. Bob could be relied
upon for the few yards needed for a first down, and
his work at passing, kicking, and running were fine all
Three years a varsity backfield man and the fourth
year the first string center of the squad, is the record
of "Mutt" Stephens. When Clay Parrish was injured
the Petrels were left in a bad fix for a pivot man, and
after looking the squad over, the best prospect Coach
Robertson could find was "Mutt". He went from the
backfield to center, and soon accustomed himself to the
job. and starred there the rest of the season. He saved
the day for the Petrels, and Oglethorpe will miss old
"Mutt". He has played his last game with credit.
A third first year man, to make the varsity last fall
was Dewey Justus. He jumped into a regular position
at tackle with the first game and was never ousted the
rest of the year. He is a natural football player, and
if he keeps up his work in the next three years as he
started in his freshman season he will be getting serious
consideration for some of the all-southern picks.
"Truck Horse" Porter was probably the outstand-
ing guard of the team last year. Living up to the
name given him, he proved to be one of the hardest
workers on the team, and there was never a time in the
season that Porter was not ready for battle. He is a
tough bird to handle, and opposing linesmen found it
very hard to do anything with this piece of pig iron. It
was his second year on the team, and he has one more
left. A valuable member of the team was Porter, and
he ought to enjoy another good season next fall.
Nix gained the reputation of being tlie hardest tack-
ier on the entire squad last fall, and he never failed to
live up to the rep. He was the man who caused the
fatal fumble by a Tech back in the first game of the
season. Nix is big and strong, and combined with these
natural powers he had plenty of speed. He suffered an
injury late in the season and was kept out of severa
of the late games. He never failed to star while he was
in the battle.
"Tiny", as he will ever be known, found himself
in his third year on the team, and it may safely be said,
that Roberts played his best game last fall. With a
wonderful natural physique he had only lacked a fight-
ing spirit. Coach Robertson seemed to be able to put
that spirit in him, and Tiny made it hard on the men
opposite him. The improvement in "Tinys" play aided
the team greatly.
The punter de luxe of the Oglethorpe team is
another of these four year men. "Jake" was once more
the best kicker on the team, and the work at booting
the old pigskin was the bright spot of his play. Few
punters in the South had anything on "Jake", and he
used his ability to kick to the best advantage. Morris
proved a versatile football player in his four years in
college, and he put in many a good play for the Petrels.
CARLTON IV EY
The fiery spirit of "Red" Ivey has always been an
inspiration to the team. No player on the squad ever
fought with a finer spirit than Red. Always he played
the game like a gentleman, and at the same time, no
man ever fought harder for the success of his Alma
Mater. His speed on the gridiron served him in good
stead, and what he lacked in weight, he made up for in
speed and other qualities.
"Caruso" is another one of these fellows who did
not have any surplus weight about him, but he could
fight with the best of them. Although, he weighed but
slightly over 150 pounds, he was one of the best guards
on the squad, and his work in breaking through the
opposing line was good all the season. He was hard to
move on the defense, and altogether, he played a most
creditable game throughout the season.
Wallace suffered a good bit during the season be-
cause of injuries to his legs. But he got into enough
battles to do the Petrels lots of good. He is a hard
runner, and seldom failed to gain over the line. He
was also one of the best defensive backs on the team
and could kick and pass effectively. He showed marked
improvement over the form of the preceding year, and
a like improvement next fall would make him one of the
stars of the season.
Football Season Review^
The beginning of the 1923 season takes us back to the hot, sultry September afternoons,
when Coach Jim Robertson and his band of candidates labored under the broiling sun of an
Indian summer to whip the players into shape for the opening day till with the famous Georgia
Tech Yellow Jackets. Coach Jim was new to the men. He had come down from Dartmouth and
had taken over the reigns to put the Petrels on the football map in a mere positive way than an
Oglethorpe team had ever been put there before. Those hot afternoons were days of real toil and
suffering for the athlets who had not been in the best of condition through the summer months.
The result of it all was not apparent until later in the season when the fine leadership of Coach
Jim and the hard work in the early fall began to show up in the play of the Oglethorpe team.
The Petrels invaded Grant field on September 29. As had been the custom in all preceding
games with Tech, the Tornado scored the first touchdown. The score came in the first quarter,
and it looked like a repitition of past years, a Tech win by a substantial margin. But immediately
following this first Tech score, the situation began to change. The Petrels got possession of the
ball and began a march that put the ball on Tech's 30 yard line. Here| the Oglethorpe team
le * YAMACRAWv
pulled a triple pass, a trick play devised for just such a situation, and with Adrian Maurer carry-
ing the ball the Petrels put it over, and Oglethorpe was only one point behind the Jackets.
Oglethorpe failed to make the extra point after the touchdown and the Petrels were still trailing
by a scant margin.
But the superior power of the Tech machine was not to be denied, and ere the half, ended
they had pushed over another touchdown and were leading the Gold and Black warriors; at the
turn by a one point margin. In the second half Tech scored twice more and the game ended
at 28 to 13.
The next Saturday the Petrels journeyed to the Classic city of Athens where they met the
Georgia team. The Bulldogs proved to be as strong as ever, and the Oglethorpe team fell before
the second of the state's great football teams. Oglthorpe did not put up the same brand against
Georgia that she showed against Tech, and this lapse in play was attributed partly to the injuries
of the preceding game. Only once during the game did the Gold and Black warriors show any
signs of really playing the game. In the third quarter, Ed David bucked over a touchdown after
the Oglethorpe team had made a nice march down the field. After this the Petrels returned to
their state of coma and spent the rest of the game without molesting the wearers of the Red and
Black. Maurer was watched so closely that he did not have a chance to get a nice gain through
the entire game. Ed David, shifted from end to a halfback place in the line-up. was the star
of the battle from an Oglethorpe viewpoint, and Big John Fletcher was the Georgia luminary.
The next week-end was an off day for the Oglethorpe hand, and it was hoped that Kilgore
and others would recover from injuries sufficiently to get into that day's game.
The "Praying Colonels" of Centre College handed the Petrels the first stunning defeat
of the year. The trip to Danville proved fatal, and much to the disappointment and suprise of
the Oglethorpe supporters, the Colonels ran up 29 points while the Robertson team was unable
to score a point. Only once did the Petrels carry a threat, and that was when the flashy Maurer
got away for a 30 yard gain on an end run. Incidentally, the Petrels suffered materially, by virtue
of injuries, in the Centre game.
Oglethorpe's first home game of the season was staged the next Saturday on Grant field,
the lair of the Tech teams. The Purple Tiger from Sewanee was the opponent for the occasion
and the Petrels entered this game with a record of thirteen straight defeats behind them. The
city was keyed up for the battle, and the gathering was pulling for the fighting Petrels to come
through. But it was not to be. Oglethorpe developed a decided tendency to fumble, for the
first time during the year, and this fault coupled with the speed of Harris, a Tiger Back, brought
the downfall of the Robertson clan to the tune of 13 to 0.
The situation became desperate, and in the fact of things it was decided that Oglethorpe
would play two games in one week. Spirit ran riot as the students sent the Petrels away at five
o'clock in the morning to encounter Wofford College at the State Fair in Spartanburg. With
fourteen defeats haunting their trail, the Stormy Petrels crashed through with a 32 to win over
the Wofford Terriers. Two days later the same Oglethorpe team fell in the wake of the Purple
The Mercer game came, and what a pippin it was. On the first kickoff of the game. Kid
Cecil, Mercer Captain and quarterback, ran 85 yards for a touchdown, and Mercer failed to kick
goal. The wise ones shook their heads and settled back to see the Petrels go down into inglorious
defeat. But the Petrels had no idea of defeat, and that first score was but a signal for
Oglethorpe to begin playing. How those boys did play. Mercer was outplayed all the first
half, and all present saw that the Petrels would score before the game was over. Maurer, Kilgore
and Gordy were advancing the ball in great style, and Nutty Campbell was running the team
with superb generalship.
The second half came, and with it victory for the Fighting Oglethorpe team. Adrian Maurer
made gain after gain, and he was aided materially by the great work of Gordy and Kilgore, who
were playing great games. Finally, when it seemed that Maurer, the marked man, could no
longer go, he advanced the ball within two yards of the Mercer goal, on a fine gain, and then
carried it the remainder of the way. Kilgore with steady nerve booted the goal that meant the
extra point and victory. The game was not over and the Baptists made one last drive, and the
Petrels somewhat exhausted by the fury of their charge could not hold the enemy rushes until
the ball was within the fifteen yard zone, when Oglethorpe braced and held for downs. Oglethorpe
won 7 to 6, and the name of Maurer was on every tongue. His work was the greatest individual
effort of the season, and the game was the best that was played in Atlanta during the football year.
Hurricane from Furman. Coach Laval's men ran up a score equal to that of Centrej and the
Oglethorpians were defeated 29 to 0.
Camp Benning proved easy pickings, and the Petrels brought home an easy victory by
some 36 to 0.
Bo McMillan's widely renowned Centenary team came to Atlanta, and playing rough and
rugged football, steam rolled the Petrels for a 14 to win. It was an impossible task, and every-
one was proud of the fine showing the Oglethorpe team made.
The final game of the season was played on Turkey Day in Chattanooga. The Oglethorpe
team had little trouble in defeating the Chattanooga Moccasins on a field that was covered with
mud and water and made it next to impossible to hold the ball. Only the sorry condition of the
field saved the Moccasins from a rout. The final score was 12 to 0.
The season came to a close with the annual banquet and the election of Adrian Maurer
as the captain of the team for 1924. At this banquet Coach Robertson expressed himself as
being well pleased with the work of the boys, and especially commended them for their spirit.
He expects great things of them in 1924.
Good Old Team
It's a good old team and trusty
That wears the Old Gold and Black,
They're fair and square, that's why they bear
The laurels back;
And so whether victory's easy,
Or sad defeat mars the score,
They'll play the game and win the same
Pep-rip for the Petrels once more!
Oh, come right on, old Oglethorpe, ive're all for you!
Get in that fight, old Oglethorpe, you always do
Now step up, hit is, smash it, drive it, crash it right on
Old Oglethorpe, old Oglethorpe, we're all for you!

Baseball Season Review
HE official record of the Oglethorpe baseball team for the
1923 season shows that the Petrels met defeat in a larger
number of games than they were winners in. The Petrels
won eight games and lost fourteen. But it is a generally
accepted fact that the team playing away from home is at
a decided disadvantage, and it happens that the Oglethorpe
team played all but four games on the road. Of the four
games played at home the local team won three, showing to a fair degree
what the boys could accomplish under favorable conditions.
The early season games were the ones that spelled disaster for the
Stormy Petrels. The Oglethorpe pitching staff was in bad condition all of
the first part of the year, and the hurling duties fell upon the shoulders of
mitried men. The result of the weakened hurling corps was that Oglethorpe
lost the first six games on the schedule. Yet in spite of the fact that the team
lost a greater number of games than it won, it is a noteworthy fact that the
Oglethorpe team scored a larger number of runs than did the opposing teams.
Oglethorpe tallied 136 runs during the season as against 120 for their op-
Oglethorpe's greatest triumph of the year was an 18 to 1 victory over
V. P. I. on Hermance field. Oglethorpe was also the participant in another
freak game during the season a game with Tennessee, which the Vols eventual-
ly won by a score of 21 to 14.
The opening game of the season was against the Yale Bulldogs in
Macon. Oglethorpe led the famous eastern team until the latter stages of
the game, when the Bulldogs rallied and won out by a 5 to 4 score.
Another Eastern foe provided the opposition in the next brace of games
and the Petrels again lost the series. The first game of the Penn State series
went to the Nittany Lions at 7 to 3. The second day the Petrels used a
freshman hurler against the Bezdek team, and Charley Peace held them
at bay till the seventh inning, when an error coupled with the second hit
that the Lions had made proved his undoing. Oglethorpe's bats were silent
that day, and the Petrels went scoreless, losing the battle 5 to 0.
Mercer next came up from Macon and conquered. The ever invincible
Tige Stone continued to display the jinx that he has always held over Ogle-
thorpe, and the Petrels lost two games by virtue of his work both in the box
and at bat.
Following the Mercer series the Petrels took a trip through Tennessee,
and Kentucky. The first game of this trip was with Maryville College, and
Peace again lost a hard game.
But the next day the Petrels broke the ice and with Lefty Willis hurling
the apple and the wearers of the Gold and Black came through with a 10 to
8 victory. The second game of the Volunteer series resulted in the afore-
mentioned freak game.
Lefty Willis again arose to the occasion on the next day, and with the
added confidence of a victory behind him he shut out the Kentucky Wild-
cats while the Petrels were hammering out nine runs by virtue of timely
hitting and fast base running.
The Petrels returned home following the Kentucky game, and enter-
tained the Florida Alligators in a two game series. The 'Gators held a
decision over the Atlanta Southern League team, but notwithstanding this
fact the Petrels romped on the Gators in both of the games. The battles
were staged in Buford.
Oglethorpe next played three games on Hermance field, and copped
this trio of battles. The first was with V. P. L and resulted in a slaughter
for the Petrels. The Wildcats of Kentucky came next for two games, and
dropped them both by scores of 8 to 2 and 7 to 6.
The pesky Georgia Bulldogs put a stop to Oglethorpe's winning streak
of six games. The journey to the Classic City of Athens proved fatal to
the Petrels, and the Georgia teams won both games. Both were hard fought
battles, the first ending 2 to 0, and the second going to the enemy by a
6 to 5 score.
The Petrels won one more game during the rest of the season, the
victory over Camp Benning. The soldiers copped the second game of the
Mercer took two more battles, and then the Petrels lost both of the
Tech games in the annual city Championship series. The Tech battles were
hard fought affairs in which Pug Bryant, flashy Petrel catcher, distinguished
himself by his fine all round play.
The Oglediorpe team of 1923 was a flashy, base running team. In
22 games the boys stole a season total 57 bases, or 2 . 6 bases per game.
Adrian Maurer led the team in base stealing with 19 thefts in 21 games.
He stole everything on the diamond but first base, and scored 22 runs.
Parrish led the team in batting with a percentage of 355. Willis was
the leading pitcher, with 4 games won and 3 lost.
The season terminated with the election of Bryant as Captain of the
'24 team. A scrappy, flashy player will lead the Petrels through the next
season, and under his leadership the team has prospects for a fine year in
YAM A CRAW
"Tiny" Roberts led the Oglethorpe track team in scoring for the season.
He is the holder of the Florida State and Georgia State records in both the
shot-put and the discus throw. He also holds the Southeastern A. A. U.
record for the discus throw. His best distances in the shot-put and the discus
throw are 42 feet, and 133 feet 7 inches respectively.
"Red" Ivey experienced the worst season of his career at Oglethorpe.
He failed to win a single first place, whereas, he had been in the habit
of winning first place in both the century and the 220 in practically all of
the past meets. However, this game-hearted little fighter gave his best at
all times, and he scored many points for his team.
The two Tucker boys came into prominence for the first time. The
work of Weyman Tucker was particularly notable, and the team rewarded
him at the end of the season with the captaincy of the 1924 team.
These four, aided by McMekin and Frazer, made up the small con-
stellation of which "Tiny"Roberts was the alpha star.

Love is variously described, but all authorities agree that excepting the unrequited
variety, it is a pleasant delusion, a mania to be in close proximity to some person, in
short, a mental disorder. At the same time if one tries to be original and tells his girl
that he has an acute mental disorder about her, she is apt to conclude that he has the
disorder, but that it is not love.
Divorces are usually the outcome of Platonic love. Platonic love is that which one
man feels towards another man's wife when the other man is in the same room. When
the husband is away the Platonism goes too. Hence, we may say that Platonic love va-
ries directly as the husband.
Women love various things — Amusement, Dress, Food, Alcohol, and Themselves.
Sometimes they condescend to care a little for a man. They do this in order to rope him
into the matrimonial noose. Once they get a good man down, they love to keep him
down on his uppers. — DIRGE.
