Dewey A. Mayhew, the niaker
of champions! Wiho will deny it?
Surely no one in West Texas. unless,
maybe, the modest fellow hiniself. His rec-
ord as a coach has been one of the highest glory
and honor. A square, hard, and straight shooter is
the best way he can be described to the stranger. Wlhy
has he been so successful in his line of work? Surely not
because he has had Well-trained and experienced material to work
with. You can renieniber without taxing your brains that in the
year that he first worked with an Abilene High School squad, he
had absolutely no veterans. At the beginning of the season, all the
old heads would wag together sadly, for they knew that a teani
could not be made of such material as that. Yet, lo and behold,
right under their own eyes they saw a wonderful football machine
developing under the guidance of the beloved coach. How did he
do it? Here is the whole secret: first, he knew the game, second,
he loved the game, third, he worked strenuously. To make the job
complete, as is his custom, he did all in his power to convey the
same thoughts and ideas to the boys, who most faithfully worked
for him. To show that the first year was no exception, he has re-
peated the act and, in doing so, he has niade the Abilene High
School Eagles famous the whole state over. This year, with hini
at the controls, Abilene High School has soared to greater fame.
Hera-is to Dewey A, lVlayhew. the maker of champions!

EDWARD S. MURPHY
Coach Pat Murphy is the ex-Eagle who made
good as a player in Abilene High School, and is
now making even better as a coach. The boys not only
work faithfully under him, but also enjoy doing so. Yvhy?
Simply because he is a good-natured, hard-working, friendly lrish-
man, who is now helping others enjoy the game he lovesefootball.
Coach Murphy is one of the main factors in the athletic success of the
Abilene Eagles, and he is held in high esteem by the students and the faculty
of Abilene High School. Here is to S. Murphy, the true Eagle coach.
JOHN H. GRECC
John H. Gregg is the fiery young coach, who is the schoolas new basketball mentor.
Although he is the most recent addition to the coaching staff, during his short stay
he has developed two Oil Belt championship teams. Truly, that is quite an honor to
the school, and no one can deny the fact that this young coach is undoubtedly respon-
sible for it. Coach Gregg is just starting his coaching career, and the success that is
in store for him is probably beyond estimation. The Eagles would hate to part with
him, and it is hoped that all his future success will be attained at Abilene High School.
HILLI ARD S. FATHFRR ICE
Hilliard S. Fatherree, the dependable utility man, is the Eagle tennis coach. Since
he is always perseverant, it is quite natural that his chief maxim to freshmen is,
uCome out for some specific activity while a freshman and stick to itfl Those students
who have followed this advice have been successful in the game. Coach Fatherree
knows tennis so well that his coaching career has many championships as its mile-
stones. He always works out a very informal and fricndly relationship between
himself and his boys, and then in this mood, they work together lo make the school
famous in the annals of tennis.
