How sweet it shall be soon
To lie beneath moist grass
Under a white-flowered moon
Where no men pass.
Then place no carven stone
To watch my eternal bed,
I long to lie alone
When I am dead.
When I have had my day
Of mortal loves and care,
The rose from my decay
May blossom there.
Then I shall give the sod
Return for life's pale star —
A rose is closer God
Than angels are

strangely prophetic of the author's sudden untimely death]

A modern poet sings of one who
cannot die, for loveliness
Is an eternal thing.
So shall the two friends of Oglethorpe Univer-
sity, to whom this issue of the Yamacraw is grate-
fully and affectionately dedicated, Dr. and Mrs.
J. T. Lupton of Chattanooga, survive the centuries
because of the beauty which they have created and
have bestowed upon future generations to be their
Because of these two beloved and honored
friends, an Institution of learning, built upon the
lofty ideals of the great leader who founded the
Commonwealth of Georgia, is enabled to extend its
sphere of usefulness, and to look forward to a fu-
ture of increased service and achievement.
So always shall the achievements of Oglethorpe's
mcst illustrious alumni embody something of the
great vision that abides in these two revered and
beneficient friends, from whom the Lupton School
of Liberal Arts derives its name.
Throughout all ages there has been some one
person or group of persons who, possesced of a
greater spirit of initiative than the rest, has gone
ahead to hew out the path which his followers must
take. On these valient ones, who have given un-
stintedly of their all, we have bestowed the name
Nowhere among the annals of this University
can there be found the name of any two persons
who have so typified the pioneer spirit as Dr. and
Mrs. J. T. Lupton, to whom this book is dedicated.
Through their unselfishness Oglethorpe was given
Having this idea ever before us, we have chosen
this theme of pioneers and have used the various
pioneers to be found in American history as motifs
for the division pages.

THE PRAYER OF OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY
Father of Wisdom, Master of the Schools of Men, of
Thine all-knowledge grant me this my Prayer; that
I MAY BE wise IN THEE. SiNK THOU MY FOUNDATIONS
DOWN DEEP INTO THY BOSOM UNTIL THEY REST UPON THE
VAST ROCK OF THY COUNSEL. LiFT THOU MY WALLS INTO
THE CLEAR EMPYREAN OF THY TRUTH. CoVER ME WITH THE
WINGS THAT SHADOW FROM ALL HARM. LAY MY THRESHOLD
IN HONOR AND MY LINTELS IN LOVE. SET ThOU MY FLOORS
IN THE CEMENT OF UNBREAKABLE FRIENDSHIP AND MAY MY
WINDOWS BE TRANSPARENT WITH HONESTY. LEAD THOU UN-
TO ME, Lord God, those whom Thou hast appointed to
BE MY CHILDREN, AND WHEN THEY SHALL COME WHO WOULD
LEARN OF ME THE WISDOM OF THE YEARS, LET THE CRIMSON
OF MY WINDOWS GLOW WITH THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. LET
THEM SEE, O MY LOED, HiM WHOM THOU HAST SHOWN ME;
LET THEM HEAR HiM WHOSE VOICE HAS WHISPERED TO ME
AND LET THEM REACH OUT THEIR HANDS AND TOUCH HiM
Who HAS GENTLY LED ME UNTO THIS GOOD DAY. ROCK-RIB-
BED MAY I STAND FOR ThY TrUTH. LeT THE STORMS OF
EVIL BEAT ABOUT ME IN VAIN. MAY I SAFELY SHELTER THOSE
WHO COME UNTO ME FROM THE WINDS O? ERROR. LET THE
LIGHTNING THAT LIES IN THE CLOUD OF IGNORANCE BREAK
UPON MY HEAD IN DESPAIR. MAY THE YOUNG AND THE PURE
AND THE CLEAN-HEARTED PUT THEIR TRUST SECURELY IN ME
NOR MAY ANY THAT EVER COME TO MY HALLS FOR GUIDANCE
BE SENT ASTRAY. LET THE BLUE ASHLARS OF MY BREAST
THRILL TO THE HAPPY SONGS OF THE TRUE-HEARTED AND MAY
THE VERY HEART OF MY CAMPUS SHOUT FOR JOY AS IT FEELS
THE TREAD OF THOSE WHO MARCH FOR GOD. ALL THIS I PrAY
Thee; and yet this more: That there may be no stain
UPON MY stones, forever. Amen.

A Chemical Analysis
or (A Chemistry Laboratory Report)
Name — Gertrude Murray Date— May 24, 1931
Class — Senior Section — 1-4
Experiment No. — 1 1
Title— Class of '31
Object of experiment: To study the properties and activities of the class of '31.
Apparatus and material: 182 boys and girls registered at Oglethorpe University,
Georgia, September 1927.
Method and observation: Some 182 freshmen were put into solution. The actions and
reactions of this human mass of chemical composition are recorded under (a), (b),
(c), and (d).
(a) A meeting of the class was held after breaking away from the superior soph-
omores, temporarily. They quietly and sanely elected Clifford Pryor leader; Charles
Tatum, Vice-President; Curley Fulton, Secretary and Claude Herrin, Treasurer.
They began working vigorously, first with the traditional "Freshman Minstrel" and
the Coed Tea. Then came football, baseball, basketball, the names: Al Church, Cur-
ley Fulton, "Kid" Golden, Charlie McKissick, Clifford Pryor and Charles Tatum gave
promise to be bright objects in the future.
(b) The second year was quite active. The molecules were less in number, some
had been precipitated out by the faculty and other agents. Glenn Bridges was elected
leader; Robert Beasley, Vice-President; Claude Herrin, Secretary and Treasurer.
The class contributed splendid material to the field of athletics. Herrin, Fulton,
Riddle, Therrell, Holcombe, Kimbrell, Golden, Rabon, Church, Adams, Woodward,
Brooks, Everett, and many others.
The names of many of the class appeared on the rolls of the Glee Club, Petrel Fol-
lies, Players Club and Orchestra.
At this early age the importance of the class was beginning to be realized in that
the names of Turk, McKissick, Bridges were found on the LeConte; Murray, Daven-
port, Turk and Golden on the Alchemist rolls. On the Petrel staffs Hedges and Wood.
The first women to be admitted to the debate council, Boardman and Murray.
(cj Noted action continued in the third year of the experiment. The leader for this
year was John Turk; Curley Fulton, Vice-President; Helen Boardman, Secretary and
In athletics, football, Fulton, McKissick, Herrin, Woodward, Kratz, Golden, Adams;
basketball, Herrin, Golden; baseball, Kimbrell, Holcombe, Rabon, Adams, Herrin;
track, McKissick and Woodward; coed basketball, Murray, Boardman, Frost and Wyle.
Gertrude Murray was the first coed to be elected Coed Mother in her Junior year.
(d) The last part of this experiment which is nearing completion was started by
electing John Turk, leader; Gertrude Murray, Vice-President; Allen Ritz, Secretary
and Treasurer. The class has been filtered down to 37. Although a group small in
number every particle is active. Charlie McKissick, captained the Stormy Petrels of
1930 to many victories. Herrin captained the baseball.
This class is most distinguished in having Helen Boardman the first coed to edit the
Yamacraw and the first coed editor of the South; Zaidee Ivey, the first coed to be
valedictorian; D. H. Overton, head of intramural athletics, Paul Bacon, President of
the Student Body and Salutatorian; Gertrude Murray, Coed Mother; Allan Ritz, Pres-
ident of the Student Faculty Council; Elizabeth Merritt, President of the Coed Faculty
Council; Claude Herrin, a three letter man.
Zaidee Ivey, wearer of the Coat-of-Arms sweater, and John Turk are members of
Phi Kappa Delta honorary scholastic fraternity.
IVIembers of the class who held positions as instructors are: Helen Boardman, Harry
Last, Thelma Brogdon, Charles McKissick, Martha Jean Osborne, Margaret Vardeman,
Zelan Wills, Gertrude Murray, Frank Davenport and Willie Woodall.
Wearers of the "O": Harold Adams, Al Church, Curley Fulton, Ernest Golden,
Claude Herrin, Charles McKissick and Hoke Bell.
Wearers of the "O. U." are: Ruth Frost, Helen Boardman, Gertrude Murray.
On the LeConte Roll this year Frank Davenport, President; Turk, Harry Last, Ze-
Discussion and conclusion: The class of '31 contains many priceless properties in
its members whom this experiment proved have worked honestly, courageously, and
conscientiously for their class in college.
Active from the beginning, it was noticed that the action increased steadily as time
Although the class was a most successful experiment, only the high points have been
recorded. It unquestionably proved the class of '31 to be a well balanced equation,
bringing credit and honor to themselves, their class, faculty, and their Alma Mater.

History of the Junior Glass
By Eugenia Patterson
From 98 in 1929-30 to 49 in 1930-31 is, no doubt, another result of the well-known
depression. At any rate, this is tne number to which the class of 1932 has shrunk.
But of those who remain, we have many who have been outstanding during the whole
of the history of this class.
Ever since Freshman days, Parker Bryant, newly-elected captain of the Stormy
Petrels of 1931, "Dapper" Myers, alternate captain, Frank Anderson, Jr., Chick Gard-
ner, Paul Goldsmith and Lefty Sypert, have been shining on the gridiron.
In Baseball, thanks to no efforts of its own, the class of 1932 has lasting distinction,
for wherever the prowess of Luke Appling, Crackers 1930, White Sox 1931, is known
every member of this class will remember that he once represented us on our 5's, 9's,
and ll's, Oglethorpe's three major sports.
But the class of '32 still has representation on the Petrel nine in Charlie Mitchell,
first-string pitcher, Frank Anderson, Jr., regular second-baseman, Lefty Sypert, the
Birds' only southpaw, and Parker Bryant, who holds down first base.
Due to a change in the plan of intercollegiate athletics at Oglethorpe, the usual
season of basket ball was replaced by a series of inter-fraternity contests. But here
again the class of '32 had its place in the limelight, with John Hallman and JeiT
McMillan being selected by the officials for the all-star team. Among the co-eds, Mar-
garet Vardaman, Christine Bost, and Eugenia Patterson were judged worthy of a
place on the Co-ed five.
Betty Crandall and Ben Simpson appeared in the first Players Club production of
the season, "The Coming of Peg," and both are now helping to make the Petrel Follies
of 1931 the usual hit. Other Juniors appearing in the Follies are Jane Kops, Betty
Greaves, Edith Marshall, Marie Shaw, who assists Ben Simpson as manager, and
On the Debate Council we have Reavis O'Neal and William Higgins. The members
of the Junior Class who have been pledged to Phi Kappa Delta are Mary Williamson,
Marie Shaw, and Eugenia Patterson.
In the recent Who's Who contest held on the campus, Betty Crandall was elected
the most popular girl, and Mary Williamson, the most intellectual girl.
Jeff McMillan is the leader of Oglethorpe's orchestra; other Juniors thus musically
inclined are Ollie Nail, and Charlie Bourne.
Reavis O'Neal, Park Brinson, and Kendall Jordan have been honored by election to
Blue Key, Honorary Activity Fraternity.
Other honors besides these have come to the members of this, our class of 1932, all
of which we will try to deserve during our last year at Oglethorpe, and in going away
we hope to leave our beloved Alma Mater a littls better for our having been a part of
her, for we will take away with us the association and influences of her indomitable

Sophomore Glass History
The Sophomore Class history indirectly dates back to September nineteen hundred
and twenty nine, the days when freshmen were commanded to stoop to conquer, grasp
their shoe laces, assume the freshman angle to receive licks and many other unpleasant
things, in order to reimburse the upper classmen who had to undergo these hardships
when they were freshmen. Directly, the record of the Sophomore class begins with
the opening of the Fall term, in September, nineteen hundred and thirty.
It was then the class of '33 reassembled at Oglethorpe as Sophomores to continue
upon their journey, the main object in view to exemplify the Oglethorpe spirit in
obtaining still higher honors, better ideals and having a degree at the point of des-
tination to end our college career at Oglethorpe. Beginning the first day from then
on, the freshmen were not hazed in any form whatsoever.
This bestows two honors upon us, the first being, the last class to receive unneces-
sary hazing during their freshman year at Oglethorpe, and the second being the first
Sophomore class not to apply unnecessary hazing to freshmen, all of which we are
proud to have bestowed upon us.
We are also proud to have the following to represent us in ditferent branches of ac-
tivities of the school. Nammie Raines, our beloved president, was selected by the
student body as being the most talented student at Oglethorpe University. Howard
Martin and Jimmie Stringer were selected Beau Brummels from a large group of
well dressed men. Last but not least, the Sophomore Class is proud of Robert L.
Jones, who is editor-in-chief of the school paper. The Stormy Petrel.
In various fields of athletics we have the following representatives. In football we
have Walker, Kenzie, Patrick, Putno, Raines, Gaillard, Baker and Morrow to make the
"O" Club. In baseball the following have distinguished themselves: Riggins, Salmon,
Baker, Walker, Moore, Whitley, Blackwell, Evans and Craven. We are also fortunate
in have Pop Freedman acquire the position of Athletic Manager for Football, Basket-
ball and Track.
All in all the Class of '33 performed greatly as Sophomores and we are determined
to surpass all other classes in attaining better achievements and exemplifying Ogle-
thorpe spirit as we continue our journey to reach the top of the ladder.

History of the Freshman Glass
By Martha Keys
Oh! What a welcomed event that Freshman dance was. For the first time since
Registration Day all students srathered in the gym for introductions to their school-
mates. How happy we were to become part of the college circle instead of lonesome
At an organization meeting we elected Phil Hildreth. President; Alfonso Goforth,
Vice-president; and Sara Sharpe, Secretary and Treasurer.
This class of '34 held the top places in three fields. First, in scholarship, we led
the other classes with the average of 80.9, and Mildred Nance with an average of 97.5
surpassed all other student marks. On the honor roll, 20 out of the 32 members were
freshmen. The second field was the gridiron. Not enough praise can be given our
boys. Those who have received numerals are: Hardy, Heriot, Johnston, Wren, Jo-
hansen, Hildreth, Goforth, Shouse, Bolden, Young, Curran, Aderhold, Flynt, Welch,
Mitchell, George, Barrow, Moss, Pickard and Harrison. These boys worked hard in
games and in practice and their striving was not in vain for — our team was UN-
DEFEATED! Coach Robertson is anticipating great things from these new candi-
dates of the Varsity. The above athletes should also be commended for their work
during the year in the dining hall. Not all honors could go to the boys, for the three
high-point co-eds in the Intramural sports are of the 1934 class. They, too will wear
In the third field, student activities, we contributed to the Petrel Follies, the Glee
Club, the orchestra, and the debating teams. Dan Duke and Charles Parris brought
us more distinction with their work as co-editors of the Stormi/ Petrel.
We have won our share of respect from everyone, and have always played the game
according to rule. We only hope that in the next three years to come we will live
up to the standard set in 1930-31.
Robert Leseur Jones, '33
His bald head waggles like a marionette's
While he erupts symbolic meteorites;
His vast umbrageous iiguring begets
A nauseous admiration from his neophytes,
Who sit in silent, sympathetic glee
And hear his discordant numbers ctash like g
Hear him derive a lunar apogee;
See him imagine molecules for grass.
If figures never lie, he's atheist,
And marshals wierd enigmas for his proof.
Impeccable as ice, lucent as mist, —
So goes this fusty Pan on cloven hoof.
And when he dies, he'll ride a geometric rail
Straight to the sacred heaven's Holy Grail.
September first brought with it prospects
of the most successful crusades in the his-
tory of the Peachtree Road school. Seventy-
five stalwart football men reported to Coach
Harry Robertson and hard work was begun
to prepare for the list of hard foes as they
would come during the season.
Despite the set-back in the opening game
with the University of Georgia, it looked like
the Petrels would turn in a good account of
themselves before the season came to a close.
But this world isn't composed of nothing but
beds of roses. Bad luck sometimes visits
the camps of the best clubs and so it did with
the Petrels at the half way mark.
And so after winning four games in a row,
the Petrels were made to feel the thorn in
the side thrust there by Mr. Jinx.
Traveling to the Bull Dog camp at Athens
the Petrels faced a revengeful foe in the Uni-
versity of Georgia. They were out for blood
because of the 13-7 defeat at the hands of
the Birdmen in 1929.
Slashing, ripping, passing and running
around ends the Bull Dogs ran up a 30-0
score in the first half. Bewildered and half
dead the birdmen looked on. But after a
pep talk during the half the Birds came back
in the second half and held the Bull Dogs
scoreless and Ray Walker carried the pig-
skin across for six points and then kicked
the extra point.
At this point of the game all the efforts
seemed futile to defeat the Red and Black
Warriors and so with the final whistle the
Birdmen accepted a 30-7 defeat. They were
ready to forget and start after the rest to
In the second game the Birdmen killed two
birds with one stone. They inaugurated the
night game under the bright arc lights in
New York City. The game was played in
the Polo Grounds.
At the end of the sixty minutes of play
the Petrels had turned in a 19-0 victory and
Ray Walker proved the most outstanding
man on the field. He acquired for himself
a new nick name, "Dixie." He ran, passed
and kicked the ball around the field so that
it bewildered the Manhattan players.
The whole team functioned like clock
work, clicking off five, ten or fifteen yards
The play of the forward wall was some-
thing to remember. They blocked and
slashed the Manhattan forwards throwing
the ball carrier for losses at will. Under
punts they always had the ball carrier cov-
ered for only small gains.
In the third start the Petrels faced the
Dayton Flyers who in 1929 helped so nobly
to dedicate the Petrel stadium with a 20-12
defeat. Like the second game this too was
played under the moon, stars and artificial
Like a cyclone out of the south the Petrels
swept down upon the Flyers, ripping, slash-
ing and tossing them aside for sixty min-
utes and when the storm subsided the
Petrels were on top 6-0. At three different
times during the game the Bird backs car-
ried the ball over for markers but twice they
were called back and penalized. But constant
playing kept them on top and at no time dur-
ing the game was their goal stripe in danger.
Until removed from the game with an in-
jured arm Dixie Walker assisted by Dapper
Myers were the two m.ain worries the Flyers
had. Others who stared were Bryant, Mor-
row, Kenzie and Goldsmith.
Starting the fourth game as the under-
dogs and playing on foreign soil at the home
of the Wolf Pack of Loyola of the South
the Petrels began working.
Fighting harder than usual to offset the
revengeful attitude of the Wolf Pack it
wasn't long before the Birds had the ball
nesting in the Pack Den over the line. Main-
taining this fighting spirit the Petrels
pushed the ball over the Host's line twice
On the defense the Peachtree Road lads
fought just as hard. Moore, Lopez and the
rest of the Wolf Pack found going harder
than usual and were finally forced to accept
defeat to the tune of 19-0.
Dapper Myers was the outstanding per-
foimer in this contest. He scored twice, and
made possible by his brilliant blocking and
interfering, many other profitable gains. In
the line Kenzie received wild appraise from
the stands for a brilliant performance as
tackle. He was assisted by Bryant, Fulton,
Goldsmith and Captain McKissack.
During the weeks practice that followed
at the Petrel Camp, Dapper Myers received
a broken foot and was removed from the
team roster for the remainder of the season.
This was the first real streak of bad luck
the club tasted so far. But it wasn't for long
for John Putno, who replaced Myers in the
next game received the same kind of an in-
jury thus eliminating him from competition
until next year.
From this date Mr. Jinx accompanied the
Birdmen until the end of the year.
Furman's Purple Hurricane invaded the
Petrel camp for the initial home game at
Just back from Florida with a Gator scalp
hanging on the belt the Hurricane began
work to bag another victory. But the Pet-
rels, known to weather the strongest of
winds, rode the gale until it gradually weak-
ened to a mere breeze.
It was a hard game with the backs run-
ning ends, hitting the line and passing for
only sm.all gains. Until Sam Baker grabbed
hold of the famous submarine pass from An-
derson and trekked eighteen yards and over
the goal line.
Not to be outdone, the Hurricane came
back and shot a bullet-like pass to a back
who had slipped through the secondary de-
fense, had the ball and was away for six
Late in the third quarter Putno, who re-
placed Myers, slipped through the weak side
of the line for a second marker making the
score 12-6. The fourth quarter was an even
fight waged in the center of the gridiron.
Outstanding" performers of the game were
Bryant, Putno, Baker, Sypert, Kenzie, Gold-
smith and Morrow.
Furm.an had several outstanding perfor-
mers but all their efforts were in vain when
they attempted to crash the Gold and Black
Taking to the road again the Petrels trav-
eled to the Quaker City to face the Main
Liners of Villanova. The game was played
in the Philadelphia Municipal Stadium.
On the fourth play of the game the Main
Liners received a break that decided the
game. Dropping an end back to kick out of
danger on a muddy field they were unable to
do so when he fumbled. But picking the ball
up and running, he skirted the end and was
away behind a wall of interference that
made it impossible for a tackier to get
through. So before the game was five min-
utes old the score was 6-0 Villanova.
Fighting desperately to score the Petrels
did so in the latter part of the game. But
in the fourth quarter the Main Liners
pushed the ball over for a second score and
the game ended 12-6 Villanova.
The Petrels next journeyed to Springfield,
Ohio, where they faced the Wittenburg
eleven in the Homecoming event of the year.
Playing hard but just unable to go any-
place when they got within the five yard ter-
ritory, the Petrels had to be satisfied with
a 0-0 game and so the home club was glad
for the old timers did not have to see the
colors trampled in the dirt.
Four or five times the Birds were within
the five yard stripe, but the stubborn defense
of the Ohioians would not yield to a score.
The entire first half of the game was played
in their territory but to no avail.
In the closing minutes of the game the
Birdmen were lucky when Sypert caught the
ball carrier from behind after all the other
tacklers had let him sift through.
Facing an old rival in the Bears of Mercer,
the Oglethorpe jinx, Waldon and Matt, Mer-
cer backs began work and in the opening
minutes of the game had the ball on the Pet-
rel goal line. The Birds stemmed the rush
and for the remainder of the half the game
was waged in mid field.
In the third quarter it looked like Ogle-
thorpe would score when Gaillard made a
gain of forty yards, being forced out of
bounds on the one yard line. With a chance
to score but overly anxious, Gaillard fumbled
and lost the ball. The Birdmen were unable
to come within striking distance again.
Fighting hard to regain what they had
lost in the third quarter the Birdmen began
passing but to no avail. Everywhere there
seemed to be too many Mercer Bears.
A blocked kick in the latter part of the
fourth period cost the Petrels a ball game
by the score of 2-0.
Outstanding performers for the Birdmen
were Goldsmith. He figured in every play,
always reaching out grabbing legs. He was
assisted by Kenzie who played the best game
of the season. Morrow and Bryant both
turned in a good game.
In the backfield Gaillard, Anderson and
Raines played good games.
Thanksgiving day found the Birdmen in
Chattanooga to do battle with the Moccasins
Oi the University of Chattanooga with four
victories, one tie and three defeats on their
Opening the game with a rush, only to be
stopped by a penalty, the turning point of
the game, the Petrels had an uphill fight on
During the second quarter the Moccasin
backs ran at will, scoring two touchdowns.
Trail, the fleet back, gave a wonderful ac-
count of himself to close his career as a col-
lege football player, scoring two of his
team's three markers.
The Petrels' score did not come until late
in the fourth period, when Anderson flipped
a long pass down the field to Bryant, who
was just crossing the goal line.
Myers, the fighting little Petrel fullback
who was removed from the team roster
earlier in the season with a broken foot, was
put into the game and at that point the team
spirit picked up, but it was too late for the
Moccasins had a twelve point lead and the
Moccasins went home to a turkey dinner
thankful for many things, mainly a victory
over Oglethorpe, a long time rival.
Thus the curtain rolled down on another
Petrel football setting with the Petrels just
over the half way margin.
Harry Robertson has held the coaching reins of the Stormy Petrels since 1923 when
he replaced his brother, Jim Robertson, Dartmouth star and All-American halfback.
It was a great break for Oglethorpe for in Robby they have one of the best all around
football coaches in the south. He has turned out good teams with the material avail-
able, and somehow, managed to pull through the season with a larger percentage of
victories than losses.
Robby is a product of Syracuse under the tutelage of Chick Meehan. He played the
pivot position for two years 1917-19 and the end position in 1920. He was named
on the coaches All-American team as end in 1920. Before coming south he was line
coach at Syracuse under Meehan during the 1921-22 seasons.

Claude Herrin, elected to lead the Stormy Petrels through the 1930 campaign, was
forced to hang his football togs on the hook for the season when he was injured in
pre-season training. He spent three weeks in the hospital at Winder, Ga.
Unable to return to the squad he called it a year. Coach Harry Robertson will have
the services of the flashy quarterback during the 1931 season and is expecting the
tow-headed lad to have his greatest year of college football.

'The Daddy of Baseball at Oglethorpe"
J € * # t
Despite the loss of four of the hardest hitters from the 1930 Oglethorpe
baseball team which won seventeen straight games, the old master, Frank
Anderson, put out a club which made a very creditable showing for itself
during the 1931 season.
Only three veterans were back from last year. They were: Captain
Claude Herrin, infielder; Whaley, catcher; Mitchell, pitcher; and Ernest
Golden, reserve outfielder on the last year's squad, who was elected
alternate captain. Goldin was kept out of the regular lineup last year
only by an outfield trio that was far above the average so far as college
Frank Anderson, Jr., reserve second baseman last spring, played a good
year at the keystone and gave every indication that before he finishes his
college career he will have seized a fair portion of the fame that his
brother, Marion, who was one of the best second basemen that ever played
with the Petrel Club.
The pitching staff composed of Mitchell, Walker, Carter, Evans, Black-
well, and Sypert stepped on the firing line and proved themselves more
than capable of meeting the competition offered them by the tough sched-
ule placed before them.
Jack Moore, second baseman on the Baby Petrel outfit of 1930, proved
a most consistent hitter and his bat helped the Petrel cause no little.
In the opening game with the Georgia Bulldogs played at Hermance Sta-
dium, the Petrels came from behind twice to outscore the Bulldogs with
thirteen base hits and twelve runs. The final score being 12-9. Parker
Bryant was the hero of the day with three bingles, which included a three
base hit to the far corners of Hermance Field.
Oglethorpe defeated Georgia in the second game of the series and tied
with Auburn for top place in the Dixie Collegiate League, each having won
two games. Ray Walker, tho' far from invulnerable, maintained excellent
poise throughout the entire game. Even when under the most severe fire,
he remained cool and controlled.
The Petrel club suffered a two game defeat at the hands of the Auburn
Tigers when the two undefeated teams met on Hermance Field. However,
the Petrel luck seemed to have taken a change for the better when the
Oglethorpe Club handed the Plainsmen a 8-3 defeat on the first return
game. The next game, however, with a 12-0 score was won by the Tigers
to give them the lead with a line of three out of four games tucked away in
The opening game with Mercer gave every prospect of being a taut game
but in the fourth inning it dropped a stitch, unravelled, and then went to
all sorts of loose ends as the Bears took the game with a 12-2 score.
However, whatever was lacking on the opening game came back in full
sway for the second game when the Birdmen took a revengeful victory
of 11-3. The hitting, which had been lacking during the season, was re-
vealed in great fashion with the Petrels securing 17 hits, including nve
doubles. Sypert came thru in fine style and proved to those who had been
doubtful of his ability, his merit as a left-hander when the Petrels won the
third game with a 4-1 score. The fourth game of the series was called
on account of rain.
In the series of games with the Florida 'Gators the Petrels emerged with
three victories; the games being marked by the stellar playing of Herrin
The Yellow Jackets took the scalp of the Petrel club to the tune of a 8-7
victory in the opening game at the Rose Bowl Field. In the second game
which saw a better brand of ball played by both teams and which revealed
none of the usual collegiate baseball erratics, the Oglethorpe Petrels won
with a 6-4 score to even up the series at one all ; Parker Bryant made a
very good display of his ability with a triple which aided considerably in
the achievement of the victory. With a bunting attack that left the
Jackets sick, the Petrels won the third game of the series with a 8-5 score.
The year's schedule which is one of the toughest that the Birdmen have
had to face is as follows :
April 16-17 Georgia at Hermance Field
April 10-11; Auburn at Hermance Field
April 17-18; Auburn at Auburn
April 22-23; Mercer at Hei-mance Field
April 24-25; Florida at Hermance Field
May 1-2; Mercer at Macon
May 4-5; Florida at Gainesville, Florida
May 8-9 ; Tech at Hermance Field
May 11-12; Georgia at Athens
• Intramural Athletics •
Oglethorpe University did not participate in Inter-collegiate basketball
ccmpstition during the season of 1930-31 although they had prospects xor
the best court team in the history of the school.
The Athletic Governing Board, headed by Dr. Thornwell Jacobs, pres-
ident of the school, decided that the students of Oglethorpe were not reap-
ing any benefits from the athletic department due to the fact that only a
limited number of the students derived benefit under this plan. They de-
cided on Intramural sports because under this plan approximately three
fourths of the student body received instructions in physical education.
Heretofore a certain group of athletes participated in all the sports at
the university while the rest who were not adapted in football, basketball
or baseball, received no instruction in physical education at all. So in an
effort for them to participate, intramural basketball was introduced and
the program proved very successful. Now approximately three fourths
of the students are taking part in the basketball, indoor baseball, basket-
ball, free throw, tennis, golf, track and many other sports.
Football and baseball programs will be sponsored as in the past for both
freshmen and varsity.
With such men like Putno, Herrin, Moore, Walker, Whitley, Mitchell,
Golden and Hallman to represent the Gold and Black on the court it was
a blow to the students and coaches to see what pointed to be the best season
on the court go to the wind. But as intramural sports would benefit the
majority, the board figured that the best plan. Whether Oglethorpe will
take part in intercollegiate basketball next year remains with the Athletic
Girls Intramural Basketball Tournament
Led by Ruth "Jack" Frost, the Fighting Ramblers, composed of the non-
sorority girls of the campus copped the girls' intramural basketball tour-
nament in the campus gym.
They had very little competition and were never threatened at any time
during the course of the tourney. In the opening game they defeated the
Beta Phi Alphas to the tune of 17-4. While not the leading scorer. Miss
Frost was the most outstanding player on the court. Josephine Garmon
was high point getter in the opening game, counting four times from the
floor. Gladys Bridges was the outstanding performer for the opponents.
Miss Frost being unable to play in the second game. Little Joe Garmon
led the Ramblers to a brilliant victory of 20-8. She scored sixteen of her
team's twenty points. Lee Bennett was the only member of the Kappa
Delta team to score. She counted with four double deckers.
In the third game the Ramblers sent the Chi Omega girls to the turkish
baths suffering under a 13-3 defeat. This gave the Rablers the undisputed
claim of championship and the cup.
Miss Garman led the field of leading scorers by a margin of one point.
She totaled twelve double deckers for a total of twenty-four points. Second
place was held by Miss Louise Bodie, C. 0. and Francis Smith, B. P. A.,
both with a total of twenty-three points. Third place was taken by Gladys
Bridges, B. P. A., with a total of seventeen points.
Boys Intramural Basketball Tournament
Winning five consecutive victories, the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity won
the first Annual Intramural Baslvetball Tournament sponsored by the Ath-
letic Department of Oglethorpe Univer_sity.
The tournament was held in the university gym with approximately
fifty to seventy-five men not competing in varsity or freshman basketball
taking part. The tournament was held in order that those not out for the
athletic teams of the university would receive some instructions in ath-
letics by trained instructors.
Each fraternity placed a team in the tournament. The non-fraternity
men of the campus banded together and a team was picked from the can-
Second honors were captured by the Alpha Lambda Tau Fraternity.
They only dropped one game that being to the tournament winners. Third
place was held by the All-Am.ericans composed of the non-fraternity men
of the campus.
The Delta Sig aggregation v/as composed of a group of sharp shooters.
They turned in a total of 167 points for the five games. Four members of
the team placed in the high score out of five places. MacMillan led with
42 points. Calhoun and Moss of Pi Kappa Phi fraternity were tied for sec-
ond place with 40 points. Hood totaled 39 points while Mitchell totaled
The cup won two consecutive years by the Alpha Lambda Tau Fraternity
in the Inter-fraternity Council tournament was presented to the Delta Sig-
ma Phi Fraternity. And thus all is quiet on the basketball frontier until
the coming of the next season.

Oglethorpe University, was founded in January, 1920. Eligibility to mem-
bership is limited to members of the student body who have not only been
prominent and successful in academic life but who have also distinguished
themselves in various other activities of the University.
The title of the organization is taken from the coat-of-arms of the Uni-
versity, a boar's head being a central part of the escutcheon. The Uni-
versity's armorial bearing's are copied from those of the family of James
Edward Oglethorpe for whom our University is named.

History of the Go-Eds
The last decade has witnessed woman gradually taking a more important place in
the political, business, and educational life of the world. In approximately that same
amount of time the co-eds of Oglethorpe have entered in full swing into the prominence
of responsible posts and campus activities.
The year 1917 (?) found an ambitious young woman, Martha Shover, applying for
the position of secretary to Dr. Jacobs, and also desiring to take a few courses in the
University. She was given the position and admitted to classes as Oglethorpe's first
co-ed. The following year, she was joined by her sister Elise. Eight or ten
co-eds voluntarily enrolled in the University during the next two years. By this
time it was noted by the faculty that the presence of these young women made the boys
more careful in their general appearance and behavior. So the President gave the
Eclicitors directions to be on the lookout for prospective women students. The num-
ber of co-eds has steadily increased, there now being approximately 90 in the Univer-
sity and 200, mostly public school teachers, in the Extension School.
From the very beginning the co-eds entered into campus activities with enthusiastic
interest and sought to attain the highest degree of scholarship, meriting membership
in Phi Delta Kappa honorary society, and the right to be a wearer of the coat-of-arms.
As we examine early editions of the Yamacraw we see co-eds holding positions as
class officers, student council members, staff members, participants in the Player's
Club, and student assistants in various academic departments. Later editions reveal
the organizing of a girl's basketball team and three local social clubs; Zeta Tau, Sigma
Alpha, and Phi Kappa Eta, now respectively Kappa Delta, Chi Omega, and Beta Phi
Alpha, national fraternities.
It was 14 years ago that the first co-ed entered Oglethorpe. Today a co-ed holds a po-
sition, and that a prominent one, in every important phase of campus life. For the
first time in the history of the school a girl is editor-in-chief of the Yamacraw. She
is assisted by a staff' of as many girls as boys. Several girls also hold responsible
posts on the Petrel staff. The first girl's intercollegiate debating team was organized
by the influence of the two co-eds who were admitted to the debating council last year.
By the installation of a system of intramural athletics, the co-eds were given an equal
opportunity for physical education.
Back in the days when that first lone co-ed entered Oglethorpe, who dreampt that in
less than fifteen years the number of co-eds would increase to such an extent as to
necessitate a "co-ed mother"? This has become necessary and the position is ably
filled by a co-ed, Gertrude Murray.
So we feel that it is not with too much "braggadocia" that we quote the words of
Bernard de Vota, "The Co-eds: God bless them."

Oglethorpe University Band
Under the direction of Jeff MacMillan, the orchestra has furnished many
enjoyable programs of music for the assembly hours and for such student
productions as the "Petrel Follies."
O. K. Barber
Mr. William Webster, lately of the Broadway production, "Blossom
Time," was secured by the University as director of the Glee Club with his
wife, Dorothy Remington Webster, as accompanist. Altho' the club did
not give any public performances, other than the weekly assembly hours,
notable progress was made and the club gives promise of outstanding work
for the coming year.

'Jjk "s' ..Hi ii
Homage to the "nice date"
Satan get thee hence
No lipstick on the collar
Bu', no experience.
Let her chatter keep you warm
Even in December
Then say goodby and go your way
With nothing to remember.
Entwine in conversation
See love's light in her look
But for your education —
Stay home and read a book.
Last night I held a little hand
So dainty, and so neat!
Methcught my haert would burst with joy,
So wildly did it beat!
No other hand into my heart
Could greater solace bring,
Than that dear hand I held last night,
Four aces and a king.
Black is white you used to say;
My foolish head would nod.
That, my dear, was yesterday
Now black is black, by god.
Here lies Ann Mann, she lived an
Old maid and died an old Mann.
And thei-e was the absent-minded gangster who lit a bomb and threw away
Pity the Scotchman who can't take a drink — the bottle has to be tipped.
The Seniors may be interested in this age old advice — "All work and no
play makes Jack" — and plenty of it.
