Tke Opportunity of Tke Lowry Sckool of Banking 
and. Commerce 

By Oscar Wells 

Presideni American Bankers Association 

No greater demand confronts American education today 
tlian that it apply an increasing part of its effort to develop- 
ing more exact understanding and a more scientific training 
and attitude among those who intend to devote themselves 
to business careers, whether on the finianical or on the com- 
mercial side. The intellectual requirements of business are 
fast rising in all directions to the Lowry School of Banking 
and Commerce to meet one of the great needs of the day, to 
jjerform great services not onlj- to those fortunate enough 
to participate in its courses but also to the general public, 
are immeasureable. 

It has been said that the distinguishing element of a profession are that it re- 
quires special training and the possession of demonstrated ability as pre-requis- 
ites to admission to its ranks, that all its members observe certain high and es- 
tablished standards in carrying on their work and that they constantly en- 
deavor to attain ever higher ideals and standards of service. In banking and 
commerce, consciously and unconsciously, these very elements are daily loom- 
ing larger and are giving business to an increasing degree the aspects of a 
profession. It is essential that into this development the best academic spirit 
be brought and developed along the lines of pi-actical success in the country's 
business activities. The Lowry School is therefore a sign of the progress and 
the aspirations of American business toda.v. 


TKe Opportunity of Tke Lowry Sckool of Banking 



By J. H. Porter 
Director of Loivry National Dank 

^^^HMHMHi Colonel Robert J. Lowry was born in Greenville' Tennes- 
^H|^^^^H see, when that little town was linked with the rest of the 
^W 1^1 ■^'^'orlcl by stage coach onlj^ He never attended school after 

^Wte,^,-'^ the age of twelve years, but went into business. He came to 
^^^ ^M Atlanta just before the Civil "War and with his father es- 

^HHr^ ., ^M tablished a wholesale grocery business known as W. M. & R. 
^^HNI^j^H -T. Lowry, which evolved into a private bank, and later into 
^Biv^^H THE LOWRY NATIOAL BANK, nationally known. 
^^Kek^^^^M Altliough universall.y successful — Colonel Lowry having 
been president of the AMERICAN BANKERS ASSOCIA- 
TION, the most powerful body of financiers in the world — he realized the ad- 
vantages that special training would afford in the field of banking and com- 
merce and was largely instrumental in the establishment of the AMERICAN 
INSTITUTE OF BANKING which affords an opportunity for special study to 
young bank clerks. 

It was with the idea that the youth of the South- desiring training of this 
kind, might be afforded, at home, an opportimity to fit themselves for the busi- 
ness of banking and commerce, thatMrs Emma Markham Lowrj^ his widow, 
left a bequest for the establishment of the THE ROBERT J. AND EMMA 
thorpe University. 

It is intended the the curriculum of such a school shall furnish a foundation 
in English, Geographj^ Mathematices, Economics and Accounting, and a 
course in Business Law. It will be readily seen what advantage a specialized 
course of this kind will be to the yoimg banker and business man and what a 
fitting memorial to the donors. 


Tke Opportunity of Tke Low^ry Sckool of Banking 
and. Commerce 

By Charles E. Mitchell 
Presidciii of Natinnal City Bank- 
New York City 

I have a great reverence for that great banker of the 
South, Colonel Robert J. Lowery, who, in addition to his 
duties devoted a quarter century to the upbuilding of the 
American Bankers' Association, — and for his wife, Emma 
ilarkham Lowry, who, upon her death, bequeathed her all 
for the establishment of this school of banking and com- 

It is always a problem in a large industrial plant or bank- 
ing institution to give to the specialized worker a proper un- 
derstanding of the business as a whole and the relativity of 
the part played by his OAvn work. The necessar3' specialization leads to a cer- 
tain narrowness of view that is pitiful for all. The simplest remedy for this 
state of confusion would seem to be to give all power to some overhead author- 
ity, but this plan would never succeed. 

The only way is the education of the people to a better understanding of the 
voluntary system by which we work together to satisf.y our wants. We cannot 
abandon the voluntary sjstem. 

There is a great need for these schools in which commerce, industry and the 
various features of bu.siness are the special subjects of study. Knowing as I do 
the importance which the founder of this school, Colonel Lowry, attached to a 
sound banking and currencj' sj'stem. I do not doubt that the desire to estab- 
lish a permanent source of wholesome influence upon this subject was one of 
the dominant motives of this benefaction. 



TKe Opportunity of Tke Lowry Sckool of Banking 



By John K. Ottley 
ident of Fourth National Bank 

The opportuuity of THE LOWRY SCHOOL OF BANK- 
ING AND COMMERCE is as boundless as the vision and 
spirit of the great souls who made it possible, and the fulfil- 
ment of this opportunity will sound the faith, courage and 
zeal of everyone uiiou whom is laid any responsibility touch- 

^^^X' J^Bj It has the opportvuiity to serve the interests of tlie world 
^K^Sj/B^ by becoming a spring from which will flow tlie pure clear 
^^I^^^^^H knowledge of economic principles so vital to human welfare 

' and advancement. A tremendous handicap to humanity 

today, individually and collectively, is the widespread lack of this knowledge ; 
the highest hope for peace, prosperity and true betterment lies in the dissemina- 
tion of those principles, which are universal in scope and applicable alike to in- 
dividuals, institutions, peoples and nations. 

It has the opportunity to broaden the lives of the students it will enroll, and 
to open the doors of opportunity wider to them; to fashion of them the leader- 
ship of which the vast and complex modern organization stands in such crying 
need ; and to make of them the instruments for the further spreading of tlie 
school's far-reaching influence. 

It has the opportuuity to lift the ideals and broaden the visions of our gen- 
eration ad generations to come by perpetuating the memory and emblazoning 
the example of the great man and Avoman to whom we owe the school's exist- 
ence — Colonel Robert J. Lowry and Mrs. Emma Markham Lowry. The embod- 
iment of the noblest and best in manhood and womanhood, adorning our citi- 
zenship and our business life, they have set a pattern, not merely in the magni- 
ficent gift out of which this school is born, but in their fruitful lives of service 
and purpose and accomplishment, to impress which upon countless multitudes 
tlirough untold years is the priceless heritage and peculiar privilege of the 
Lowrv School of Banking and Commerce. 






The class of 1926 wishes to take this opportunity 
to thank Messers. Oscar Wells, J. H. Porter, Charles 
E. Mitchell and John K. Ottley for their articles on 
"The Opportunity of the Lowry' School of Banking 
and Commerce."

Broadhust had a reputation for being 
lazy at Oglethorpe. This was shown by his 
winning the place as the laziest student on 
the campus in the AVho's Who contest for 
two consective times, but he lacked a lot of 
having a monoply on laziness. Those who 
know him best also know that he was one 
of the most clever students at the University 
and was blessed with an unusual amount 
of common sense. Another fine trait which 
Broadhurst possessed was his good nature. 
He was never known to be mad and was al- 
ways ready for a little fun.

the rare gift of being able to keep

Senior Class History 

"There is Nothing Permanent Except Change." 

The joys of life are many — its privileges great — its pleasures manifold 
and intense; yet even throughout all of its happiest hours and most hilarious 
rejoicing, comes to the thinking mind, the sad and certain wail, ''This too, 
shall pass away!" We cannot escape from this inevitable fate, no matter 
how earnestly we may endeavor so to do for all things human are mortal. 
Since entering Oglethorpe as Freshmen in the fall of 1922 we too have under- 
gone spiritual, intellectual, physical, and numerical changes until we have 
at last reached the goal of Seniors. So we are Seniors. 

Let us now take a retrospective view of our achievements, both individ- 
ually and collectively, during our college career. As Freshmen we were not 
the largest class to enter Oglethorpe, yet according to Dr. James Routh, we 
were the most intelligent looking class that ever trod the campus. The Soph- 
omores, however, lost no time in impressing our freshness upon us. 

We were soon represented in every phase of college activity. We con- 
tributed able members to the debating team, players club, orchestra, football, 
baseball, co-ed basketball, and tennis teams. Our tennis team composed of 
Brewer and Ingram won the championship for the 1923 season. 

As a class we took the initiative and abolished the time-worn custom of 
hazing in all forms, together with the obnoxious "rat court." During our 
Sophomore year we abided by our legislation true to form, with the excep- 
tion of one memorable night in which we attempted to exercise authority 
over the Freshmen. But alas — to our dismay! We were outnumbered three 
to one and the outcome of the battle that ensued is too well known and needs 
no repetition, for it could easily be guessed. 

Our debating team of 1924-25, composed of Bishop, Orovitz, and Jor- 
dan, all members of the class, accomplished the most outstanding feat of 
the year by defeating the teams of Sewanee, Maryland and Dahlonega. 

We were represented in the Players Club by Corliss, Comwell, Elder, 
Gay, Goldring, Holcomb, Jordan, Robert Jackson, Nichols and Wimbish. 
Those taking major parts were: Elder, Holcomb, Jordan, Robert Jackson, 
and Nichols. Corliss rendered invaluable aid to the club in his untiring ef- 
forts as stage manager for three years. Two of the three Spring plays of 
1924 were written by class members, ''Seeing God," by Gladys Hurtell. and 
"Set for Midnight," by Harden and Cornwell; while the music for the third 
play was composed by Thelma Doyal. 


In both of the S. I. A. A. championship football teams, we were most ably 
represented by Corliss, Cooper, Nix, Parrish, and Perkerson. To our South- 
ern championship baseball team, we contributed Wall and Lindsay. 

During our Junior year we lost several of our most brilliant class mem- 
bers. Bagwell, Bentley, Bishop, Coles, Comwell, Ford, McCormack, Orovitz, 
and Wilkes entered the class of '25 by continuing their scholastic work 
through summer school sessions. Robert Jackson and Carl Sisk, two splen- 
did young members of our class, were unfortunately taken from our midst 
by the hand of death. Although seperated from our realm, yet their memo- 
ries shall remain dear to us always. 

Those making the coat-of-arms sweaters, which is the highest award for 
scholastic attainments that our Alma Mater can confer, were: Bentley, 
Cooper, Antilotti, and Nichols. Our members of honorary fraternities are: 
Corliss, Gay, J. L. Jackson, Lyon, and Vincent. 

The predominance of the class is evident by the number of leaders of 
student activities which have sprung from our ranks during this year. Du- 
Pree Jordan was president of the debating council; Leila Elder, president 
of the Alpha Kappa literary society and mother of the co-eds; Charles Cor- 
liss, president of the student body; Roy Lee, chairman of the student coun- 
cil; Corliss, president of the Players club; Mary Nichols, captain of the bas- 
ketball team; and Jordan, editor of The Yamacraw. 

Looking back at our college life, we cannot get away from the fact that 
it has been, to all of us, a source of blessings and rejoicings. We are not so 
puffed up with pride as to imagine that our class will occupy the highest 
place in tlie records of this university; still we have good reasons to believe 
that we have struggled perseveringly and bravely. And we trust that the 
ending of "this, our lesson," will be the beginning of another life that will 
enable us to build upon the foundations laid while students of Oglethorpe. 

"Our task is done, our song hath ceased, our theme 

Has died into an echo; it is fit 

The spell should break of this protracted dream. 

The torch shall be extinguish' d which hath lit 

Our midnight lamp — and what is writ, is writ; 

Would it ivere worthier! but we are not now 

That which we have been — and our visions flit 

Less palpably before us — and the glow 

Which in our spirit dwelt is fluttering, faint, and low. 

Farewell! a word that must be, and hath been 

A sound which makes us linger; — yet farewell!" 

Will A. Lee, Historian. 





For the Class of 1926 

GONE! and there's not a gleam of you, 

Faces that float into far away; 
Gone! and we can only dream of you. 

Each as you fade like a star aivay; 
Fade as a star in the sky from us, 

Vainly we look for your light again; 
Hear ye the sound of a sight from us? 

"Come!" and our hearts ivill be bright again. 

Come! and gaze on our face once more, 

Bring us the smiles of the olden days; 
Come! and shine in your place once more. 

And change the dark into golden days. 
Gone! gone! gone! Joy is fled for us. 

Gone into the night of the nevermore. 
And darkness I'ests where you shed for us 

Alight we will miss for evermore. 

Faces! ye come in the night to us; 

Shadows! ye float in the sky of sleep; 
Shadoivs! ye bring nothing bright to us; 

Faces! ye are but the sight of sleep. 
Gone! and there's not a gleam of you. 

Faces that float into the far aivay; 
Gone! and we only can dream of you 

'Till ive sink like you and the stars away.

Junior Class History 

Out of the one hundred and sixteen members of the Freshman Class of 
1923 only 45 remain. As the gold is left after the panning so have these Jun- 
iors struggled through three years of their college career. The class is made 
up of boys and girls who can think for themselves. Their three years work 
in the various activities at Oglethorpe is a manifestation of their effort. 

The Class of '27 plays a big role in athletics at Oglethorpe. It's members 
represented in varsity football are: Hardin, Redfern, Justus, Campbell, 
Cousins, Carrol and Slayton. The class is represented on the first official 
basketball team by: Campbell, Cousins, and Chestnut. In baseball we have: 
Terrell, Cousins, Campbell, Justus, and Chestnut. In track the Junior Class 
has outstanding members in Barber, Boone, Captain '25; Burton, Captain 
'25; and Heath, Captain-Elect '27. lone Thompson represents the class in 
co-ed baskebtall. 

Our class is not only represented in athletics, but also in the academic 
activities. We have the following on the Petrel Staff: Duke Terrell, Editor- 
in-Chief; Kay Bosworth, Assistant Editor; and J. P. Nation, Business Mgr. 

Also are proud to have two members on this year's Yamacraw staff: 
George McMillan, Assistant Editor; and Luther Wright, Assistant Club 

On the debating team we have Bannister, Ginn and Edge. Of the three 
plays used by the Players Club last year and staged at the Atlanta Theatre, 
two were written by members of our class. They were Oliver Grambling and 
Josephine Eichberg. 

It is very interesting to note that about 20% of the Juniors are working 
their way through college. 

There is one member of the Class of '27 whom we should not forget, that 
is Ed Miles. He is an ideal student and man, organizer of Tri Mu Junior 
Sunday School, the first successful class at Oglethorpe. Ed puts his whole 
heart and soul into an undertaking and is deserving of the greatest praise. 

Next year we shall enter into the inheritance of the Senior life, and if 
the past is any key to the future the Class of '27 is destined to do it's bit for 
the Alma Mater.

Sopkomore Class History 

Our class, the largest in the history of the school, maintains an interest 
in activities that is rarely equaled. In football we were represented on the 
varsity squad by: Andy Anderson, Hancock, King, Goldsmith, Garlington, 
Gordy, Guthrine, Grimes, Hutson, Perkins, Bob Shepherd, White, and 
Mosely. Those winning letters were: Goldsmith, Guthrine, Garlington, 
Gordy, Mosely, Perkins, Bob Shepherd, and Cliff White. 

Oglethorpe's first varsity basketball squad was made possible by: Gar- 
lington, Black, McKissicks, and York. 

The 1925 Freshman baseball team composed of: York, Garlington, 
Hutson, Hugh Buchanan, Minhinnett, Alton Allan, McKissicks, Earl Shep- 
herd, Boswell, Gilreath, Hancock, Anderson, and Wingo, played the lead- 
ing college Freshman and Prep School teams, and won fourteen of the nine- 
teen games played. 

The school spirit for the last two years was strengdiened by Cheer- 
leader Red Beuchler and 0. E. White as his assistant. 

On the co-ed basketball team we were represented by Evelyn Hol- 

In the movement for the establishment of the honor system in 1924, 
our class is to be commended for its rapid move to adopt and maintain this 
system, having pledged ourselves in a class meeting to uphold the standards 
that we believe necessary for the good of Oglethorpe. 

The able officers of our class this year are: John Glodsmith, president; 
Brant Boswell, vice-president; Bob Grimes, secretary and treasurer; and 
Roy Hancock, our representative on the Student Council. 

In journalistic work. Homer Gramling served as temporary editor-in- 
chief of the Petrel, being assisted by Wayne Trayer and Frank Gordy. In 
the business department we have Roy Hancock and Red Beuchler. In the 
1924-25 Yamacraw staff "Baby" Spencer and W. F. Underwood are on 
the Art staff. 

In the South's best college orchestra we had: Paul Landen and W. F. 

Action, showing the initiative of the Sophomore class was demonstrated 
by the baldheads of this year's Freshman class.

Freskman Class History 

September 23, the Oglethorpe campus was dotted with one hundred and 
twenty wild-eyed and inquisitive newcomers, darting here and there to ar- 
range our program for the first year at the University. 

The Sophomores, victims of the previous year, were ever ready to extend 
to us a welcome and to carefully explain the traditions of the University. 
The first day we swarmed to the Co-Op to purchase our Freshman caps. 

Much to the dismay of the excited Freshmen, hair clippers were brought 
into play by the Sophs, and within the first three days after the opening of 
the school doors, we were minus out patent leather hair. 

After the first two weeks of the school term, we gathered in the chapel, 
and with several Sophomores taking charge of affairs, elected officers of 
the class. Heyward M. Thompson was elected president; Odel Andrews, vice- 
president; and Clark Taliferro, secretary and treasurer. 

The Sophomores were offered a real treat by our class during the early 
part of the first term when we presented a minstrel in Chapel, entertaining a 
packed house for more than an hour. The show was entirely original and 
was successfully staged only through the untiring efforts of the cast of more 
than fifteen Freshmen. 

Our athletes, whom we hope to witness in action in varsity uniforms 
within the next two years, established a wonderful record for Oglethorpe in 
football and basketball. In the two sports the frosh attracted attention 
throughout the South. 

The footballl team, captained by Jake Malsby, wended through an eight- 
game schedule, winning four contests, losing two and tying the score in the 
remaining two games. A total of 140 points were piled up against 40 for the 

Our basketball five, the first to represent a Freshman class, fared well 
on the court, and made a record that will long be remembered. The season 
was completed without a single defeat. 

Undoubtedly we have the biggest array of outstanding college specimens 
of any institution, and if we remain banded together with the same Petrel 
spirit prevailing, the class of 1929 will step out into this world to bring fame 
and honor to the principles and teachings of Oglethorpe University. 

— Heyward M. Thompson.

"T'luick" has won all sorts of honors in 
school, and not the least of them are those 
•won by his work on the grid iron. "Chuck" 
could always be relied upon to give a good 
account of himself, and his departure this 
year is a real loss to the school. 

Alternate Captain and Tackle 

"Bob" is the smashing, crashing type of 
fullback that the fans enjoy so much. He 
was handicaped this season by having to 
contest with captain Kilgore for a place, but 
now that Kilgore has finished his career, it 
is largeljr upon "Sheps" capable shoulders 
that the plunging work will fall. He should 
spring into the prominence next year that he 
almost obtained this vear. 






"Whitey" is a fine type of plunging half- 
back, and Avas one of the hardest workers on 
the squard. He has in him the making of a 
brilliant back, and Oglethorpe students are 
counting on him to bring it to view next sea- 
son. "Whitey" is a quiet and peace-loving 
bov in school and on the campus, but he is 
a regular terror on the gridiron. 

Eighty Five 


Clay tiuislied out his third season as a star 
eud, aud his mates honored him by electing 
him alternate captain for 1926, which season 
should be even greater than those in the 
past. If Clay isn't chosen on the mj^thical 
ALL-S. I. A. A. next year' it will be a sur- 
prise to those who have watched him play. 


''Uncle Dewey" was so good at both guard 
and tackle that Coach Robertson decided to 
use him at both places. On the offense Dew- 
ey ran from tackle, and on defence he play- 
ed guard. Dewe.y also finished out his third 
year on the varsitj% having won a place there 
his freshmau year. "Uncle Dewey's" humor 
lightened the ardure of pratice for all the 


"Caruso" was pronounced the lightest and 
frightingest guard in the whole South, and 
certainly he deserves the title. "Caruso" was 
always in the thick of the fray and his words 
of encouragement proved a great aid to his 
teammates. He is another that should win 
a place in the AA-S. I. A. A. next year, and 
his many friends are counting on him to do 





Halfback ' 

"Tnley" was the fastest man on the squad 
with the exception of Maurer, and his fleet 
limbs were responsible for many a gain dur- 
ing the season. Especially notable was his 
work against Tech and Mercer. He is the 
one man that coach thinks may ripen into 
another Maurer and we arecounting on him 
to do it next season. 

"Ed" won for himself an undisputed var- . 
sity place this year, partially by virture of 
his ability to carry the ball, but chiefly be- 
cause of his excellent interference work. 
"Ed" was also the relief quarterback, and 
termed the hardest tackier on the outfit. He 
should shine brilliantly next season. 





"Muggs" came to Oglethorpe with a rep- 
utation as a football player that it would 
have been hard for any man to live up to, 
but in the few opportunities he had to show 
his worth, he came thrugh in fine style. 
"Muggs" was greatly handicapped by inju- 
ries throughout the season, and should he 
elect to return next year, may surprise even 
his friends. 


The "Maje" was the human battering 
ram of the team, and it was the coach's de- 
light to bring him from the guard to the full- 
back position in practice and send him at the 
line with his uubelieveably bull-like rushes. 
Major should enjoy a wonderful season next 
year, and he should come in for considera- 
tion when the time arrives for choosing the 
the best man at each position among the 
associations teams. 




"Goldy" in spite of his lack of weight, 
stepped into the shoes left vacant by Lint 
Cooper and handled them in fine style. 
"Goldy" is said to be the grittiest boy on 
the squad, and the coaches have great dif- 
ficult}^ in making themselves know when he 
is injured- biit then "Goldy" never talks 
about anything, and his longest speech is 
"Hello" and "Goodbye." 

"Roly-Poly" was being groomed as Maur- 
er's understudy for this year, but after the 
season ended last j'ear, he pulled a ligament 
that required an opeartion on his knee. This 
slowed him up a lot, but he still managed to 
render valuable service and is counted upon 
to prove a star of the first water in his next 
and last campaign.

Marvin was a fine flanksman for three 
years, but it was only last season that he 
came into his own. Just how successful he 
was, has been shown by the fact that he was 
a t>eneral choice for ALL-S. I. A. A. honors. 
Marvin was also a very popular boy in school. 
His departure this year is the cause of many 

"Ike", distinguished for his versatility as 
a lineman, rallied to the aid of his team in 
the midst of the season by amplj- filling the 
center position which was left vacant y the 
departure of Clay Parrish. At this juncture, 
we are marching steadily to a second champ- 
ionship and the vacancy of the position plac- 
ed Oglethorpe in the throes of disappoint- 
ment. But "Ike" injected a feeling of con- 
fidence bj' substituting and playing a brand 
of ball equal to the ability of Parrish. "Ike" 
has one more year to play for the Gold and 
Black. And he is expected to better his per- 
formances fo the past years. 



"Bill" came to Oglethorpe in 192-4 from 
Tech High School as a thorough student of 
football as well as classics. And he further- 
ed the reputation by exceptional perform- 
ing as a member of the Frosh eleven. Again 
this year "Bill" forged to the front, winning 
the coveted "0" as member of the varsity- 
squad. He is a member of the array of Soph- 
omores who won places on the squad. "Bill" 
is a tower of strenght and a player of mark- 
ed ability behind his muscular development. 
Before the end of his career, Oglethorpe is 
sure to be blessed with a second line demon 
of the Parrish caliber. 

Eighty Nine 




Louis started out ou the freshmau team as 
a center, but he was used on the varsity as 
both a tackle and an end, which shows some- 
thing of his versatility. Louis is tall, strong, 
and fast, an ideal combination for almost 
anj- place in the line and he has shown his 
worth at nearly ever.y one. He should have 
his best year next season. 

Frank was another one of the disting- 
uished Sophomores to land a berth on the 
squard via stellar football. He displayed his 
wares as a defensive player- winning the 
commendation of many Petrel enthusiasts 
as lineman of the first water. Frank came 
to Oglethorpe from Columbus High School, 
captaining the team of that school in 1922. 
In his freshman year he participated in only 
a few games diie to a seriously injured leg, 
procuring the hurt early in the season.

Football Review^ 


Under the leadership of Coach Harry Robertson the Oglethorpe football 
team fought its way to a second successive S. I. A. A. championship, in spite of 
the fact that it lost its captain, Clay Parrish, and its tackle, "Lint" Cooper, in 
the middle of the season. 

The first game, was with Tech. Greatly outweighed, they were forced steadi- 
ly back during the early stages of the game, and it looked for a time like a 
walk-away for the Jackets. But with the score 13 to against them the gallant 
Petrels began again to fight. Every heavy onslaught of the more powerful 
team was met with a spirit of desperate effort that would not be denied, and 
Tech's scoring was fiinished. Toward the end of the game, successive runs by 
Maurer and Walsh placed the Petrels in the scoring zone, then Maurer flipped 
a pass to Campbell who swept out wide, and the little quarterback scampered 
across the line. The goal was kicked' and the score stood, Tech, 13 Oglethorpe, 
7, at the final whistle. 

Howard College, in Birmingham was next. Early in the game Bancroft, 
Howard quarter, slipped through for a score. Howard took the lead, 6 to 0, 
and began then to play inspired football. The efforts of the Petrels to score 
were in vain, but late in the second half Adian Maurer was rushed into the line- 
up. Immediatly he began one of his sensational marches down the field which 
culminated in a beautiful zigzag run of 57 yards for a touchdown. Goal was 
kicked by Campbell and the game was won 7 to 6. 

The biggest surprise of the season came in the Centre contest, when the Pet- 
rels walked over them for a 20 to shutout. The whole team played brilliantly. 
Next came the heavy Fort Benning soldiers, one of the best teams in the coun- 
try, who trampled the Petrels, 27 to 7. Wofford sprang a supprise by holding 
the Petrels to a 13 to 7 score, also leading them 7 to 6 until late in the game 
when brilliant runs bj' the incomparable Maurer resulted in the winning touch- 

The Citadel was next, and here the Petrels annexed a 7 to victory. The 
trip to Clinton for the game with Presbyterian College brought a few hours 
fear for the hopes, as they held the lead on the Petrels until the last few minutes 
of play when a field goal by Campbell overcame their lead and won for Ogle- 
thorpe, 17 to 16. 

Then the big game with Mercer, when the Petrels met their only S. I. A. A. 
defeat, 21 to 6. The Bears outplayed them, but the Petrel's team of that day 
was not one that so easily defeated Centre. 

The Thanksgiving game at Chattanooga was another thriller in which the 
Petrels had difficulty in gaining a victorious verdict, amoimting to 6 to 3. It 
was again the splendid \vork of Maurer that made victory possible. 

The post season game with Rollins College in Miami proved easy, and the 
team played the best ball of the season on a muddy field. The Petrels won, 13 
to 0.

The first varsity basketball team ever put out by Oglethorpe 
was further handicapped by the fact that they could not begin 
practice until late in the season of their premier year. In spite 
of this, however, Coach Harry was able with the fine material of- 
fered him to mold a very worthy team. 

Not many games could be sclieduled, because wIk 
finally got their court ready for work, all the (itlici

In the first, the Bears, with one of their usual stcrliii: 
ed the verdict by a 37 to 24 count, and at this writii 
had not been played. The Petrels were deter 
even the count on their home court. 

Another S. I. A. A. team to be played, was the University of 
Chattanooga, and once again the Petrels were forced to bow to 
the superior training of a team whose season was unhampered, 
and the Chattanooga boys edged out in the lead, 26 to 21. They 
knew though at the finish of the contest that they had met a real 
basketball team, and they so expressed themselves. 

Because of the incomplete season, and the great number of 
handicaps under which the first Petrel team labored, not much 
can be said of them, but with a freshman team on hand which de- 
feated this j^ear's varsity, the prospects for 1927 are bright indeed. 

Coach Harr.v has already promised that he will again be on 
hand, and this assures the Petrel of one of the best mentors' and 
some of the best material in the South. 

Ninclu Five 







The Oglethorpe Freshman basketball was the best ever put out 
at the Petrel institution, and won for itself an undisputed claim to the 
state title, and a record as good perhaps as that of any other first year 
club in the Southeast. In the thirteen games played, they scored a 
total of 524 points to 290 for their opponents. 

Besides the strong prep teams of the state that were defeated by 
the Petrel yearlings, wins were annexed over the rats of Georgia Tech, 
Georgia and Mercer. The only loss of the season was to the Georgia 
rats in Athens, a close hardfought game there ending, 34 to 30 against 
the Petrels. A sweet revenge was won though, when the Bullpups 
came to Oglethorpe for a return game, and the Oglethorpe boys trounc- 
ed them decisively, 54 to 45. Tech, ancient rivals of Oglethorpe, was 
twice defeated, 25 to 14, and 39 to 19. This, alone would have made a 
successful season so far as a lot of Oglethorpe freshmen are concerned. 

The personel of the team was Captain Jack Massey, Earnest 
Sheridan, "Bo" Slater, Bill Moore, and Joe Fine, forwards; Floyd 
Bass, center; and John Bell, Hey wood Clements, and Bill Taylor, 

The team was coached through its very successful season_ by 
George Hardin, Oglethorpe football star, who proved very efficient 
in his first year as a mentor. A great varsity is expected next year 
with the addition to those eligible of these fine men.

for three years, Avas given charge of the 


managerial reins of the 1925 baseball team 

champion nine of the Southern Intercolleg-

Gus is one of the best workers on a baseball 


field that we have had the opportunity to

the baseball in his early years of experience 
and, last year, handled perfectly the execu-

are sure that such speakers Avere absolutely 

right. Although "Jay" was lost by grad- 


uation, Harle is back and will lead the 1926 

' fji 

nine. We know that he will make a good 

captain as he has always been a good play-

Right field 

"Duke" was one of the classiest bunters 
in college baseball' and could always be 
counted on to reach first. His "heads-up' 
counted on to reach first. His "heads-up" 
baseball usually enabled him then to work 
his way around. "Duke" could also field 
with the best of them, and the home folks 
breathed easy when high one was lifted to 
his section of the field. 

First Base 

Clay was converted last season into a first 
baseman, and was expected to take another 
turn this j^ear in a backstopping position, 
but unfortunatelj^ left school in the middle 
of the football season. This was a sad blow 
to Oglethorpe, because he was not only cap- 
tain and a star on the football team, but also 
the captain of this .year's nine. Clay was 
the "Babe Ruth" of college ball. 



"Leftj'" could easily and without contra- 
diction be termed one of the best college 
pitchers in the South. The very fact that 
he was picked up by the Pittsburg Pirates 
before the end of his college career would 
prove this. "Lefty", more than any other 
man perhaps, was responsible for Ogle- 
thorpe's great baseball season. 



Second Base 

"Jay" was not only the best second base- 
man ever to play for Oglethorpe, but also 
one of the most popular boys ever to attend 
our school. His many friends are following 
his professional career, as the property of 
Brooklyn Robins, with a warm interest and 
a confidence in his ability to make good. 





''Truck" will always be remembered for 
the fact that he had one of the deadliest 
throwing arms ever seen in this section. It 
was almost sure death for anyone to try to 
steal on him, and few did. "Truck" is the 
third of last year's nine who was grabbed by 
the major leagus. He -went to St. Louis 
Browns, and from all reparts made a very 
favorable impression on the fans of the Big 

Third Base 

The great speed that made Adrian so fam- 
ous on the football field also made him a 
threat in baseball, and the opposing teams 
took the utmost care not to let him get on the 
sacks. Once he did, it usually meant that 
he would race his way on home. 

Adrian proved himself to be a very val- 
uable man to Oglethorpe.

Center Field 

I. W. was one of the most natural hitters 
on the team, but it seemed that hard luck 
would persistently dog him' for the major- 
ity of his rifle-like cracks went straight into 
the hand of the enemy. Enough of them, 
however, went free to help in winning several 
games for the Petrels, and he is counted on 
even more for the 1926 nine. 

Center Field 

Joe alternated with I. W. Cousin-i in 
center field, and although he could not hit 
the apple with the same ability that I. W. 
showed, he held a decided edge on his rival 
when it came to fielding and base running.

Unfortunately, Dave was in bad health 
most of the year when he should have enjoy- 
ed his greatest season. But even his bad 
health did not prevent him from putting 
down the Georgia Bulldogs in the last game 
of the season by besting "Bill" Mundy in a 
stirring twirler's duel. 

One Hundred-One 



First Base 

"Lefty" won quite a name for himself 
as a pinch hitter and general i^tility 
man. Towards the last of the season 
he got into the battles more regularlj^ 
and showed his stuff to such an extent 
that nobody is worrying about first base 
problems for the 1926 season. 





Pitcher and Infielder 

Whether Thad was playing third or pitch- 
ing, he could alwaj's be counted on for good 
work, and the way he used to burn 'em over 
to first from third always made the guardian 
of that sack take off his mit and cool his 
palm. "Buck" is going to pitch in 1926 and 
it is upon him that the hopes of the Coach 
largely rest. 


Charlie was another infielder who, upon 
short notice, was converted into a twirler. 
This proved a wise move. Charlie did yoe- 
man service on the mound all season, and rid 
himself of several corking good games which 
prevented Willis and Barbee from being

From the opening of the 1925 season with a fine victory over the strong 
Ohio State nine — a slugging- match that ended 14 to 13 — to the equally fine 
victory over the Georgia in the final contest of the season, Oglethorpe played 
the brand of ball which has made her nines famous through out the country. 

To Coach Anderson must go a lot of credit, but it is also true that he had 
a set of real baseballers with which to work. To turn out two championshop 
nines in successive years at a school that is hardly a dozen years old, speaks 
eloquentlj^ of his ability. 

Although the 1925 title was in a muddle because no team came through with 
a clean slate, Oglethorpe cehtainly had as good a claim as any one else. 

The season started with Ohio State. The first game Oglethorpe Avon, 14 to 
13' but in the second the northerners were victorious, 7 to 5. Then Dartmouth 
took the only series the Petrels lost, in two straight victories of 4 to 3 and 6 to 0. 
Indiana was next, and in the only game between them the Petrels gained the 
verdict, 2 to 1. 

This was followed by a loss to Fort Benning, 9 to 6, but the Stormy Birds 
came back on the next day and wolloped the soldiers to the tune of 9 to 0. Then 
Howard College fell victim to the Peachtree Road sluggers in two straight 
games by the large scores of 11 to 12, and 12 to 3. The following week Vaudy 
came to Oglethorpe and was badly treated on both days. The Petrels Avinning 
10 to 0, and 9 to 5. 

And then the big game Avith Tech ! In the first, a real thriller, Tech Avas 
finally the victor, 8 to 7. With "Lefty" Willis in the box the next day the Pet- 
rels Avon SAveet revenge by beating them 4 to 1. Four games Avith Merce re- 
sulted in the Petrels taking three by scores of 14 to 7, 7 to 6 and 6 to 4; and los- 
ing one, 11 to 10, after runing up a big lead in the early stages of the game. 

The journey to Vanderbilt proved disastrous as Vandy took them both, 11 
to 1 and 11 to 8. Apparently maddened by this the Petrels jumped on Union 
the folloAving tAvo days and pasted them tAvicc 7 to and 12 to 3. HoAvard Avas 
again beaten tAvice, and strangely enough by the same score in both games — 
8 to 1. 

The Avind up of the season, and the crucial tests so far as the Petrels Avere 
concerned, came in the tAvo contests Avith the Georgia Bulldogs in Athens. On 
the first day, Avith the invincible "Lefty" Willis the boys Avon 4 to 1. And to 
round out the good season in proper style Dave Barbee on the next day forgot 
his ailments and turned the Georgia boys back by 3 to 1. 

Although the entire squad played good ball, the outstanding men 
of the season Avere Willis, Terrell- Parish, Partridge, Wall and Porter.

Oglethorpe also possessed in '25-26 its most successful 
cross-country team, and this in spite of the great lack of pro- 
per facilities. 

Under the leadership of Coach William Shands, and Cap- 
tain William Burton, the candidates who responded to the in- 
tial call molded themselves into a formidable aggreration. 

In the tr.y-outs held on the Oglethorpe campus, Herbert 
Libby came through in the lead and won for himself a varsity 
letter. Running second and third, respectivelj', were Ralph 
Heath and Captain Burton. 

The first meet held in Macon, between the halves of the 
Mercer-Furman football game. The only man of Oglethorpe 
to place in this meet was Earl Shepherd- who came in third. 
Running as they were, on a course entirely new to them, and 
after a hard trip down there, the Petrels did as well as could 
reasonabl}' be expected. 

The second meet, a return with Mercer, was also lost with 
Earl Shepherd again placing third, and again being the only 
Petrel to show. 

Several practice meets were held to round out the season, 
and the prospects for next year, with every man returning, 
are usually good. Ralph Heath was elected to Captain the 
'26-27 squad. Now that the sport is tirmly established at 
Oglethorpe more representative meets will be arranged for 
the coming season.
