P History and Purpose of The Class of 1919, of the Academy ot' Richmond County, presents this year's edition of the Annual to the school with the hope that in the years to come the publication of an Annual will be continued, and that from now on it will become a regular part of the student work of every Senior class. XX'e have this year paved the way for them and all that is necessary for those coming after is to follow in our foot steps. The purpose of "The ARCH is to leave some concrete reminder of the year Nineteen Hundred and Nineteen. This hook will live for years. and every Academy boy who has a copy of it can. in the the years to come, look through it and bring hack old memories of this year. Especially of value and interest it will he to the Senior Class who now are about to leave the halls of old Richmond. each one going his own way. lt will again and again bring back to them golden memories of their good old Senior days, memories of the year in which they received their Diplomas. The publishing of "The ARC" has been something entirely new. Never before had the School attempted the publication of an Annual, the only publi- cation up to this time being "The .XRC Light," which was a small magazine published monthly for six months. by the Senior Class. THE .JRC-1919 7 It was at first the intention of this class to publisl: the magazine. but on account of haying to lose two months from school on account of the influenza epidemic the idea was given up. It was then suggested by certain members of the class that instead of a magazine we publish an Annual. This motion was brought up and passed at the nrst class meeting. but little did we dream of the amount of work necessary to accomplish this end, if we had. I think the motion would have been lost. A statf was appointed and with the aid of a Faculty committee we started. For about a week or so we did not get very far from the start because of the fact that no one knew exactly what was necessary to be done, except possibly the Faculty committee who, in their college days. had done a little work of this nature. Atter a while various printing and engraving con- cerns sent in contracts and the most advisable one was signed. At about that time it dawned upon certain members of the Statt ta few of them it has not dawned upon yet! what a large amount of money it was really going to take. So the Business Managers began to try to work out a plan by which we could meet the costg subscription blanks were distributed among the boys in the Battalion, and glory be to them in the manner in which they backed ns up. Nearly every boy in the Battalion promised to take a copy, while Company "ll" promised the largest number of subscriptions. Prices for advertisements were figured out and, let it be said here, that the llusiness Managers did excellent work in obtaining them. Next came the part that was of most interest to the school, and that was the taking of pictures. As you can easily see all kinds were taken and the more we took the more delighted were the boys. After about a month and a half of worry and work the Annual was sent to press and the entire Staff took a rest, that is if studying hard for the last month of Senior work can be called taking a rest. IYhile I am writing I wish to extend to the men who made possible this Annual the appreciation of the entire Senior Class. Especially we wish to thank Messrs. Copeland, Skinner, bl. L., and Cason, members of the Faculty. who were our supreme advisors and helpers in the work. Next we wish to thank all the merchants of Augusta who gave ns an advertisement tif it had l'l0t been for their generosity we would hate to think of the plight of the Annual t. XYe also wish to thank the entire School, both Faculty and boys. for the manner in which they cooperated with us to obtain the best Animal possible. Last. but not least. we wish to thank Mr. Montell. the Animal photographer, for the interest he took in our work and for the good pictures which he photographed. as they greatly helped to make the Annual. As a closing, I will only hope that the people who read this Annual will get as much enjoyment and interest from it as there was work on our part to edit it. CAPT. C. A.'rLE. '19, Editor-itz-Clzicf. THE .IRC-IUIU THE .JRC-1910 O Foundation of the Academy of Richmond County The Academy of Richmond County is the oldest educational institution in lieorgia. and the fourth oldest in the United States, The Statute of USS, under which it was created, may not be a technical charter. and no corporate name was given to the lloard, which, though not called Trustees of the Richmond .Xcademyy was referred to sometimes as the LiHl'lll1114Nl1l11Cl'5 of Richmond County. some- times as the Trustees of Augusta, and sometimes as the Trustees of the Academy and the Church. The original act did not designate the duties nf the lloard. They exercised all manner of powers, many of them diverse, and from our present standpoint incongruous. It laid out the town. numbered the lots, named the streets, built St. l'aul's Church, managed the Academy and chose the teachers, ran a lottery, repaired the river bank, narrowed llroad and tireene Streets, and performed many other functions not recorded here. In 1783, immediately after the close of the war. the tirst demand of the citizens was for the establishment of an Academy. The new State had no money and no means of raising it, but it took advantage of the fact that the land in and around :Xugusta was held under royal grants, containing a provision that the purchaser should improve the property within a given time, or else that the lot should revert back to the King. Many of these lots had been bought up by those who did not improve them, and hence were liable to forfeiture. These. together with the Public Reserve, originally laid out as a common around the Fort, were vested in Trustees to be sold, and the proceeds used for building a church, and for the building of an academy or seminary of learning. It was, of course, necessary to sell lots and raise money before the school could be established. llut the citizens were not willing to wait on that slow progress for raising an endowment suflicient enough to maintain the Academy. They did not want their children to be deprived of that which was instantly needed. But the lloard looked at it from a financial standpoint, and took no steps either towards hiring a teacher or erecting a building. The public was not satisfied with the progress made and the Grand jury, on March 27, 1784, pre- sented as a grievance "the want of a seminary of learning." This stimulated the Board, and they let a contract for the erection of a schoolhouse. This con- tractor died before any work was done, and the Grand -lury again in October. 1784. presented as a grievance "the languishing situation of the intended Academy or Seminary of learning." The Board then rescinded the contract with the executor of the deceased contractor, but appeared to have been unable to for- ward the building. The Grand Jury, again responding to the public impatience, on March 2-l, 1785, presented as a grievance "the Commissioners for the public buildings of this town for not making proper exertions in getting the church and Academy erected, notwithstanding the funds appropriated for the purpose and which are deemed more than adequate to carry the same into execution." This presentment stirred them into motion. and on the next day, March 25. 1785, "the Board having consulted upon the employment of a Master for the 10 THE .JRC-1919 .'Xcademy, and llr. Xlim. Rogers. late of the state of Maryland, having been well recommended. as being of good fame and sufficiently learned in the sciences. appointed him Master at a salary of 2002 and the use of the buildings and gar- den, for which the said Master should give his whole time. shall teach the Latin. Greek and English languages. and the common practical branches of mathematics. according to the rules established and practiced in the seminaries of learning and reading in the Cnited States. Children learning letters and reading, will be charged S-1.00: those learning the principles of the English grammar and cipher- ing. 55.001 and those learning the Latin and Greek languages, or any branch of the mathematcs, 510.00 per quarter." The school established was for boys and girls and remained so for a long period, its exact termination not being known. Cln the same day they resolved that a merchant be employed to import books. the list of which shows a high standard for the new school. Also French and English tutors were employed at a salary of S300 each. The school was lirst held in some building that had formerly been used in pre-revolutionary days. and was opened in April, 1785, the lirst commencement being held on Clctober 24, 1736. We cannot determine exactly where the lirst schoolhouse was located, but the minutes of May, 178-1. show that the Board let the contract for a building which was to be erected on the square bounded by XYashington, Reynolds, Mclntosh and Day. the Academy to be exactly in the center: a large gate, avenue and court to be exactly in the front, and a garden from the back to the rear. This site was abandoned. and the lirst schoolhouse was erected on Bay between Elbert and Lincoln. ln it court was held, and also church services, until 1789, when St. Paul's was rebuilt. This building was spoken of as tenement No. 9. There was evidently another large building on the adjoining lot, for, at the same time, it was resolved that the lot No. S "should he reserved until the further order of the Board for the sessions of the General Assembly, and for the holding of the Superior and Inferior Courts of the county. together with the Circuit and District Courts of the United States. and that for that purpose the keys were to be given to his Excellency upon his appli- cation, who is required after the rising of the Legislature to deliver the same to the sheritt for the uses last named." The Public Examinations were held in the spring and fall, and it is most interesting to note to what great importance they were considered by the entire community. They were attended by the lloard oflicially and by the public gen- erally: sometimes by the Governor and the Executive Council, later by the City Council in a body. The first of which we have any record is that of March 30, 1786, and another in july, 1789. The above article was obtained from good authority and written by Felton Davis. of the Class of 1916, in his Senior Year. lYe feel that he should be given credit for his work, and we are glad to be able to obtain an article on the foun- dation of the Academy, written by an old Academy boy.

"Bly Flaglm How fine that sounds when you can point out to a foreigner "Old Glory" flying in the breeze. and say that it is yours. lt is yours to defend and love: it is yours to die for, if necessary. To be able to say that the Hag and what it represents is behind you in any lawful deed, and will see that you are given your just rights in any foreign land gives one conti- dence. What true American does not feel his blood grow hot and tingle in his veins, his heart thump faster, and a strange feeling creep down his backbone. when he sees "Old Glory' floating proudly at the head of a column of troop? 'lust imagine what the rlag must mean to a person who has been in a strange' country, from under the protecting wave of the Stars and Stripes, suddenly to see it at the mast of one of our battleships. Today. the flag is in lighting trim after having been carried into the midst of the European warg into the midst of the tight for peace and democracy. Today foreign powers know that our Hag and our uniform represent fighting qualities superior to those of any other country. They know that our flag is tobe respected or they will have to suffer the consequences of a fight with ourtroops. whom they have learned to fear. The forty-eight stars in our Hag represent forty-eight states. each an empire within itself. That these states have fought and worked together, has been one of the secrets of our success in past wars. Therefore. let us hope that in the future. each state will do its duty, so that the stars and stripes may forever wave over the "land of the free and the home of the brave." C.xP'r. C. .-X.

Iiriinixo Available records show that the Academy of Richmond County was first Organized upon a military liasis in 1382 under the command of Capt. I. 0. Clarke. The cadets were formed into a single company and drills were held in the afternoons, three times per week. In 1887, Isieut. lf. XY. Greenleaf was put in charge of the Department, which was discontinued in 1888. Ten years later. a military organization was adopted under the command uf Klajor Geo. I'. liutler, who is the present Commandant of the Department. Two companies were formed and a short drill was held each morning. instead of the usual recess. After a few years, under the command of Major llutler. the Department had increased in numbers to such an extent that it was necessary to organize three companies, and later four. as in the present llattalion. Light single-shot Remington rifles were used from 1918 until 1015 when Krag-Jorgensen Carbines were loaned by the Government and ammunition was supplied for target practice until the outbreak of the XYorld XYar. The Rifle Range of the National Guard, which is situated about six miles from Augusta, just off the 1Iilledgeville Road, was available for this purpose and some fine records were made by the cadets. In 1914 a beautiful stand of Colors was bought, replacing the old Academy Hag used before that time. The Cadet Iland was organized in 1015 under the leadership of Lieut. C. Iiohlruss. and has been a most valuable feature of the Department ever since. It is worthy of note that no professional instruction has ever been given the lland and that the membership has always been confined to cadets actively enrolled. The cadets have three uniforms: the fatigue uniform, consisting of a blue coat, bell crowned cap and grey trousers: the full dress uniform, consisting of the blue coat and bell crowned cap of the fatigue uniform and white trousersg the summer uniform, consisting of khaki breeches, shirt. cap and leggings. The fatigue uniform is worn by the cadets from November to April and the khaki uniform from April to June, while full dress is worn only on Memorial Day, Company and Individual Prize drill days and on other special occasions such as the Commencement Exercises. The most notable features of the Military Department during the year are the Individual and Company Prize Drills held during the month of May, in which the ability both of the individuals and of the unit as a whole is tested to the limit. In the Individual I'rize Drill, each Captain is allowed to select ten men from his company. These men must be well drilled in the Manual of Arms as they represent the company in the Drill. The Captains give the commands and the Drill is judged by officers of the National Guard. Each cadet is allowed three' mistakes before he is put out of the Drill. The last ten men standing count one point each for the company which they represent toward the Preparedness Cup, presented to the school by the Class of 1916. The last man standing in the drill is awarded the "Levy Medal" for proficiency in the Manual of Arms, and counts for ten points toward the cup for his Company.

N, X F5 H2 THE .JRC-IQIO Literary Department l'lliRlIlili'l' N.xt'1iit.xN, '19, Editor The Fatal Sword About the year lS8'J, when a part of the Royal Troops of England were billeted on the outskirts of the little Village of XX iltshire, in the northern part of England, a terrible tragedy occurred among them. In this particular regiment there were two brothers, john and Maurice Ingletow, who were inseparable. lt happened that the amusement of the troops was very limited. XX'hcn ot? duty they played different games, such as cards, 'lack-knife and dice. They also indulged in the English athletic sports, but one of the things they took greatest interest in was daring one another to do things that were dangerous or risky. They longed for some excitement. One night, when the card game had become uninteresting, one of the sol- diers jokingly said: "XYhich one of you fellows would enjoy a night in the village grave yard? They tell me it's haunted." "l'll take you up, old top," said -lohn lngletow. accepting the challenge. "would tonight suit 7' "Sure," answered the other. Since it was then only nine o'clock, john thought he would get a few hours sleep before starting on his journey. Going to his tent, he slept without taking off his clothes. At eleven o'clock he got up, slipped on his shoes, buckled two automatic pistols to his belt and started for the stable. There he selected the fastest horse. lYhile he was putting the saddle on the back of the animal some of his friends entered the stable. 'They asked him casually what he was going to take for protection. He replied: "My two reliable friends, my automaticsf' "Those should be sufficient," said one of them, with a smile. Then they left him. He finished saddling his horse, mounted and started on his journey. ll'hile passing his tent, the thought struck him that there might be need of his sword, so dismounting, he went into his tent. unlocked his trunk. and got it. After buckling it around his waist, he again mounted his horse and continued his journey. XYould be have any trouble? XX'ould he encounter anything out of the ordinary? Something told him that he would. lle reached the village at eleven-thirty and passed through without meeting any one. He reached the grave yard as the village clock was striking the hour of midnight. tied his horse to a hitcbing post, calmly walked into the grave- yard and took a seat on a tomb-stone. Unconsciously he felt for the butts of his automatics and the hilt of his sword. He had hardly been there ten minutes, when about tifty feet in front of him, a tigure in white suddenly arose from an open grave. The blood froze in his veins and he was paralyzed with fear. In a few moments he half-way regained control of himself. He could make out the spectre by the light of the moon. The head appeared to be a skull, fire flashing from the eyes: the white YHE .JRC-1911! o3 robe it W01'C was smeared with blood: its walk was slow and deliberate. Loining toward him, it emitted a hollow groan. every few feet. The phantom was only twenty feet from him: he drew his automatics and demanded that the figure stop, but it cattle on. He tired. but to his dismay and untold terror. the ghost. with a mocking laugh, placed its hand to its mouth. took the bullet out and threw it back at him. He tired both of his automatics in quick succession and continued tiring until they were empty. Ilut the spectre. with the same liloo-lfcurtlling cry. returned the bullets to him. Terror-stricken and desperate. he rushed up. drew his sword and plunged it into the chest of the ligure in white. There was a dying moan: the form fell forward into his arms: the skull fell from its Imrltlull. and he recognized the face of his own brother, Maurice! It happened thus. XYhile hlolzn was sleeping. his brother and the other sol- diers went into his tent. took the bullets out of the cartridges and placed the blank cartridges back in the magazines. These bullets were then placed in the mouth of the skull, to be thrown at ,lohn when he tired the blank cartridges. The skull was borrowed from the village undertaker. phospltorous was lifiught from a drug store to be rubbed in the eye-sockets of the skull. All that was then necessary was the borrowing of a sheet and the smearing of a little beef blood. The pos- sibility of 'lohn carrying a sword was not taken into consideration by the prac- tical jokers. CULDEN Rixn IS,vi"rEv, '20, Corf. Co. A.

The Unsuspected Criminal In the quaint village of Epernay, France. lived a rich old financier, Louis Fontaine. He was descended from the best French people and was known throughout the surrounding country. His wife had been dead tifteen years and his only consolation was that his son. Francois. would inherit his fortune. Francois. who was twenty years old, realized that his father's health was failing, and set out to procure a doctor. who would care for him. At that time criminality in France was at its worst and every day brought forth many mysteries. Francois returned from Ghent with a physician, named Pierre Stavros. He was a shrewd looking man and he seemed to know much ot his work. One month after the arrival of the doctor, a peculiar thing happened. It was on the night of September 27, 1897. Old Fontaine had just retired and Francois was attending a ball held in honor of Mlle. Marie Montmantre, the daughter of distinguished parents. It was long after three o'clock when Francois started for home. just as he entered the front door, he was clutched, bound and drugged, by several masked men. XYhen Francois regained consciousness, he found himself in an old room which was apparently a part of an old chateau. It was night and he heard the we THE .IRC-1919 sound of voices near by. He got up and explored the room, but he found noth- ing in it but an old trunk. All of the doors were locked from the outside and he knew he was a prisoner. He cared not for his own hardships. but' thought only of predicaments that his father might be in. Thus he was kept for several days. Every night food was given to him and every morning he heard the clamor of rough voices. but occasionally he thought he heard a familiar one. However, he never paid much attention to it. On the third day he decided to examine the old trunk in the far corner of the room. In it he found some wigs and a long dirk. One morning while he was cutting initials in the wall with his dirk, the blade sunk into a knot-hole in the wall. Immediately, to his surprise the old trunk swung noiselessly upward in the arc of a semi-circle, as if it were on oiled hinges. XX'here the trunk had stood, there was now revealed a hole in the floor. A ladder led down into the darkness below. Francois descended the ladder and found himself in a large room which was filled with chairs and tables. On examining the room closely, he saw many kinds of firearms suspended from the walls. He took a revolver because it was best to be prepared for an emergency. After several hours of wandering about in this cellar-like dungeon, he came upon an exit which opened into a thick woods. He saw the old chateau a little to the rear of him, but he did not tarry long. After reaching a highway, with which he was familiar, he proceeded homeward. His thoughts turned toward the doctor from Ghent, yet Franeois was not certain that he was the guilty party. It was about dusk when he reached home. To his great surprise. he saw his father and the doctor sitting by the large fireplace. He went inside and embraced his father, then he turned and shook hands with the doctor. Francois' father told him that the commissioner of police, M. Godroy, had been notified of his disappearance, but that Godroy reported that nothing could be learned as to his where-abouts. Qld man Fontaine also told Francois that on the day before, he had received a letter saying that his son would be returned to him, if he would give up one hundred thousand francs at Bellecourt Rock, on the road to llellecourt. Then Francois related his experiences to the doctor and his father. He also produced the pistol that he had found in the cellar of the old chateau. For the first time he noticed the initials on the butt of the pistol. They were M. G. The truth was clear now. Francois recalled the familiar voice that he had heard several times in the old chateau, to be that of M. Godroy, the com- missioner of the Royal police of the Ghent district. The next day he left for Paris and returned with a company of Gendarmes. They raided the old chateau and took Godroy with his companions prisoner. Godroy and his police colleagues were fined heavily and put in prison, while Francois Fontaine received a just reward for his important discoveries. PT.-XRRY D. SMITH, '19. Sgt. Co. C.

The Acadeiny. like must all other high schools, has had a hall team since the game was tirst knuwn. There has been some grind teams and again there has been some that did not take ruff great honors. The Academy has developed mine grmtl players and on the Liniyersity of tieorgitfs 1910 team three of the stars are wld .Xcademy hall players. They are Philpot. Davis. and Mangrun. who first showed their ability in hasehall on an Academy diamond. In the past the Academy has shuwn up very well nn the diamnnd and one year won the high schnol champinnship nf Genrgia. The prospects for a good team at the heginning of this season's practice were nut Su grmfl as prospects that had confronted the Academy Coach in past years. .Xt the nrst meeting uf hall players Carswell was elected Captain, the candidates numbered ab-int thirty-tive. There were fwur old letter men present. Hillman, Fell. Uwens and lirifiin. and arunnd these the new team has been huilt. l'ractice was started on the Campus and about time for the lirst game these thirty ndd men had dwindled down tn thirteen. THE .-IRC-1919 7l The season was ushered in when the -lohnston Hayseeds visited XYarren Park. liillman worked on the mounil. and. although lazy as ever, when the sun's rays had left the held, he had pitched Richmond lu victory. A week later the team journeyed down In hlolznston for another contest. The atmosphere was so charged with things rural. a cemetery on one side and center held in a valley, that was being plowed to plant potatoes, that the citv lads lost to .lohnston by the score of six to nothing. i The team was somewhat disheartened after the result of this game but when they learned that the -loltnston team was coming back their spirits rose and they practiced with the thought of revenge upon Johnston. The result was that when the country lads again showed up only two of their men were able to cross the pan while Richmond managed to put nine men across. Next, on the day before, and on Klemorial Day. April 25 and Zo, the Academy faced the fast aggregation of Lanier lligh School. Lanier had already gained the distinction of defeating Tech High. ln a comedy of errors in both games on the part of the Academy we went down to defeat. tiillman pitched a good game both times and if it had not been for the errors and the bad plays the score might have been different in hoth games. Un the tenth of May the Academy nine took a trip down to Macon to have another try at Lanier. The result of the game was a great deal better, although we were again defeated by the score of six to tive. Owing to contiict with school work tl'e Academy was forced to lose Klr. Bryson as coach, but were fortunate in being able to secure Mr. Marvin Wolfe, who has shown himself an able coach. At the time of this article going to press the baseball season is not over and from the way the team is now running it appears that there will be some more victories to add to their credit. LIEVT. D.

Editor Athletic training under proper supervision is a very important fea- ture in every good schoolg without proper supervision it is open to many abuses. Most all colleges favor ath- letics. especially inter-collegiate. and take special pains to give the men an opportunity to test their skill among their own fellow students, and also with students of other colleges. It is the same at the Academy, and there is a constant effort to make a winning team in every line of sport. It is the custom at some schools-we hope not of the higher ones-to allow a boy who is an expert in some sport, to at- tend so as to strengthen the team but TR-ACK PRACTICE ON THE CAMPUS do not require him to take any sub- jects. or very few subjects. At the Academy this type of student is not desired as a hero or as an advertisement to the school. Hence no cadet can represent the Academy in any contest unless he has scheduled four units of work, not previously credited to him and has passed in three of these units for the week preceding the last Faculty meeting before the contest. His conduct also must be satisfactory. Therefore, you see, the men who represent the Academy on the Held of action must be satisfactory students in both conduct and studies, It is also needless to say that the Academy ideals for amateur sports are absolutely against giving any compensation to any player for his athletic service. THE .JRC-IUI9 73 Track Every year one of the leading sports at the Academy has been the tield day events. The boys are divided into three different classes, lightweight, middle- weight, and heavyweight, therefore giving the small hoys equal chance with the larger ones. A cup has been offered by the lfaculty to the boy in any one of the three classes making the highest number of points. There has been great rivalry among the boys as to which weight would win this cup. ln 19113 it was won by 'lack Sherman, middleweight, who had a total of 20 points. ln 1917 it was won by Robert Denton, heavyweight, who had a total of 13 points. The school has nearly always sent a team to the 10th District Meet and the cadets have usually given a good account of themselves. :Xt the state meet in 1917 lloswell Rigsby, the only entrant from the Academy. won the high jump at 5 ft. 9 inches, equaling the state high school record. The track team of last year, consisting of llritt, XY. XY.. Cleckly. H., Lanier, S., Sylvester, D.. and XYalton, ll. Li., journed to Sandersville for the district meet. Next week there was much rejoicing in the school as they had returned victorious. Field day last year was held on April lfvth and when the sun set on that fatal day there were three men tied for the lfaculty Cup. llenton, R., heavyweight: Sylvester, D., middleweight. and Radford, S., lightweight. After much discus- sion it was tinally decided instead of presenting the one cup to give each some prize. so a bronze placque inlaid with silver was presented to each of the three. The track team of 1919, when this article went to press. was progressing very nicely, and except for the fact that it has turned cold or rained each time a date was set, we would he able to announce the cup winner for 1910. But all we can do is bid each weight good luck and say "1 told you so," when the winner is announced. LIEUT. D. C, SYLYESTER. '19, .rlflzlclic Editor. 5 QQ ,V 1 s eese e " 1, ly gb it f rs fy A T Q 74 THE .JRC-1919 Football The usual football schedule was so interrupted by the lntiuenza epidemic that no varsity football games were played this year. Csually the Academy has a well organized team, and plays a great many high schools in the neighboring towns. ln the past the school has made a fine showing and one year won the high school state championship. This year the usual practicing started and by the number of men out it appeared that the Academy would make a good show- ing. However, before the first game was played the school was closed for two months. Xthen we came back it was after Thanksgiving, therefore too late to take up varsity football. Every year beside the regular team, there is organized in each military company a football team. Any man who had made his "R" in football could not play. thereby allowing the more inexperienced ones a chance to show their ability in football, The teams have always made a good showing and there is a hot rivalry between the different companies. This year on the restart of school the companies' teams were quickly organ- ized. For about a week or so the campus was the scene of many a football scrimmage. They were soon whipped into shape and made ready for the first battle. The first day Co. "A" played Co. while Co. "ll" played Co. The game between and was hard fought and ended by neither side scoring. At one time it seemed that "C" would win but a fumble under "A's" goal post shattered their hopes. The other game ended in an overwhelming victory for "ll," the score being 51 to O. The next day of battle ended by "B" defeating "C" by a score of 33 to 0. and defeating "D" 12 to 6. The third day brought about some startling results as "A" defeated "B," the supposed champions, by a score of 6 to 0. The other game ended in the usual way by "D" being defeated by "C" 19 to 0. This day's playing left things in a tangle, as "B" had defeated "C" and and had defeated "ll" and could not claim the championship because they had not defeated "C" and the rules are that the winning company must defeat the other three. Therefore "C" demanded to play off the tie with "A." This was granted, but was postponed until after Christmas ou account of a great many of the men being sick with Influenza. After Christmas the tie was played off and ended by "C" being totally defeated. The score might have been different except for the fact that4"C" still had three men sick, including the captain of the team. This closed the season of football with Co. "A" the champions. On account of changes in the military department the companies have been moved up and the championship footfall company is at present called "D" company. It is hoped that in the football season of next year the old reliable varsity will again take part in the high school football battles of Georgia and South Carolina. The champion company football team is as follows: Sxxronn, XY. 4Captainl .............................. . . .Quarter Rack g'l'l'RBlAN, S. Mlanagerl.

GREEN, Editor During the year l'llfl the most important epoch in class events was the Class Day Exercises which we1'e held at the Richmond County Court House, April l'l. l'llll, at 11:30 A. Xl. The exercises would have been held in the Academy lluilding, but for the fact that there was no available seating space. A move- ment was started sometime ago to construct an auditorium, but because of the Great NYorld XYar, the movement was dropped, XYe, the graduating class hope that in the near future, the long hoped for auditorium will be realized. The court room was lilled. the special guests being the members of the Senior Class of Tubman High School. judging by the amount of applause, the friends and parents of the Seniors seemed to greatly enjoy the exercises. Une of the chief features of the program was the presentation to the school of a Memorial Slab in memory of Mr. .l. XV. Farmer. He was formerly head of the English Department, but died of Influenza during the past winter. 1NrRom'c'rouv RE M .x it K5 .... llL'RI'USIi or THE Uccxsiox. .. lxvocxxriox. .. ......... ...

NY. Farmer. our former English teacher. It gives me a great pleasure to think that the class, as a body, thought enough of hitn to erect a memorial, but when you think of what this memorial really means. it means that he is gone forever. that never again shall we hear his cheerful voice. it puts a sorrowful side upon the matter. Qnly those of you who have attended the Academy in the past few years know of the attitude and the feeling of the buys toward him. Yery seldom in my tive years here have I heard a boy speak against him. and if so he found himself alone in his attitude toward Mr. Farmer. He was not only a teacher but he was a friend of every lmoy in the school. He knew and called nearly all by their nrst name and when passing on the street he had a cheerful hello for everyone. He was liked by all from Freshmen to Seniors and since the idea of a memorial was proposed in the Senior Class there has been numerous requests from the other classes to allow them to help toward its erection. lf the Seniors had been willing. which they were not as they wanted this Memorial to show their efforts and express their feeling. the entire school would have gladly con- tributed toward this end. The Senior Class was especially fond of Mr. Farmer because this year had he stayed at the Academy he would have been our roll teacher. In other words. he would have been the leader and advisor of the Class in all its undertakings. In November, when we learned of his death. it was a shock to every boy in the Class, or better. to every boy in the school. We were not in session at the time. therefore could not extend our sympathies as a body, but immediately upon the reopening of school. at the lirst class meeting. the Memorial was proposed. It was unanimously carried and the result of our efforts is nearly completed. to be erected over the hearth in his former room. This room was chosen because it was his and had been his for years. Mr. Farmer took a great pride in this room, especially in its neatness and even today a great many of the pictures and books in it were left by him to the school. Therefore. what more appropriate place could there be for this Slab than in his room, where students in the years to come may associate his name and that room. and remember that "although he was not a man of many inches he was every inch a man." Therefore, Major. I wish to present to yon. as Principal of the -Xcademy. this Memorial Slab in memory of Mr. Farmer. from the Class of 1910. lt to be erected in his room and may it stand there as long as the walls of old Rich- mond. and if they should be destroyed that it he put in some appropriate spot. so that his name may forever live along side that of the school. C.-XPT. C. A. Doourruz. President Class ,IO. 78 THE .IRC-IOIO Class Oraiion, 1919 l.adies and Gentlemen: It is with a feeling of gladness, intermingled with sadness that we come together this morning to participate in the exercises of the Class of Nineteen Nineteen. XYe are glad because we are soon to receive diplomas from one of the leading preparatory schools in the country: and because of the joy and fellowship that pervades so happy an assembly as this. we are sad at the reali- zation that the time is approaching. when we must bid one another farewell. and leave behind us the pleasures associated with High School life. It will soon be time for our commencement. as we have now passed the half mile post' in our last year of work here. Is it not strange that closing exercises should be called commencement? XYhy use the word Commencement at the end? Is that one of the eccentricities of the English language? Or is it really a commencement ?-Yes, the day we leave the class room, is certainly the day we commence our education, the foundation of which has been laid by our work at school. A good solid foundation will most assuredly make possible higher attainments and great achievements. Many are the colossal monuments of humanity inspirational to thousands today. whose foundations were laid in the Academy of Richmond County. But the good foundation is never laid by the careless, indolent workman. who hurries through his task in order that he may amuse himself. Yes. my friends. we. the members of this Class have now reached a very critical point in the pathways of our lives. XYe stand today. on the dividing line between our boyhood world. and that universe of activity. which we are about to enter as men. Conse- quently it will not suiii-:e to do as some fellows say. "O, I'll study all right when I get to College." The good foundation is just as essential as the work at College and even more so-and fellows. if we do not attain high marks we should not let that discourage usg because if we put into our work our best. noblest efforts. and at the end, even if we should not receive our much coveted diploma, we shall at least have the satisfaction of knowing that we have done our best. If a fellow has the right kind of ambition, and possesses the will and deter- mination to succeed, nothing on the face of the earth can stop his progress. Michael Angelo was seen gazing upon a lump of stone. and when asked why he. of such art. was gazing so intently upon a rough stone. he replied. "I see an angel there." And from that stone he carved an angel. As our principal looks into the faces of boys when they apply to him for matriculation. he. too, sees what he hopes to carve-but I don't think he sees THE .JRC-1919 79 many angels. He sees Georgias future poets, physicians, iinanciers and states- men. His predecessor once looked into the face of him who was to become the greatest statesman in the world. Our Il'0odro:.' ll'z'I.ron of --luzvrira. By education our future is determined. Today education has become a great commercial asset. The man with a trained mind will be in great demand for the best and most responsible positions. Education is becoming more and more a necessity in the proper development of the crudest products of the earthg hence, the establishment of great technological and agricultural colleges. General Leonard XYood. in an address to the New York lawyers club. said that the best soldiers were those who had studied and who had learned how to observe laws. Foch was president of Frances leading military college, The Ecole de Militaire. Pershing was a lover of books, and is yet. President XYilson. to whom the whole world is now appealing for counsel. was a "mere school teacher," a mere "book worm." No better example of the abilities of school teachers can be found than that of the part the teachers from the Academy had in winning the world war, and making practically the whole earth safe for democracy: so fel- lows if we hear one of those lazy, indolent, good-for-nothing persons say that Education may be all right, but some people try to get more than their share. we should laugh at the lamentable ignorance of the fellow. Education is the one and only thing we won't have to worry about getting too much of. Abraham Lincoln was a ltoy of lowly birth, dwelling in poverty in a small log hutg and in this humble home he built the foundation of his career as one of Americas greatest presidents. when he lay on the iioor, beside his mother's lireplace each evening, after working all day in the iields, and studied with a lighted pine-stick for his lamp. He, too, was one of these so-called book worms, only in a moditied way. He studied hard. for he knew his mother had made sacrifices to buy him those books: and, because he loved her, he studied them for her sake, as he felt within himself a cry for better and higher things. Our parents also make sacrifices for usg true some make large sacrifices. and some make very small ones, but the self-denial and sacriiice is endured to some extent by the parents of each of us. As each little weed and flower on this earth is placed here for a special purpose, so also is every human being placed here with a specific duty to perform. Each and every tiny babe is born in order that he will make the world better by helping to blot out ignorance. All of our parents are interested in our work at school. And shall any one of us, through pure laziness, show our ingratitude for the consideration of the dearest and sweetest person in the world. our HO THE .JRC-1919 Mother? I do l1Ot think, in fact I know. that an Academy boy is not that kind of fellow. llut if he finds himself doing wrong, I am sure he will do right if he has 11 chance. Xow, as I have said, the present year is coming to the end: the time comes when we of the 1919 Class must leave the old Academy, and begin our com- mencement of life's problems. Some of us will go to work and encounter the actual hardships of the larger life. while the rest of us who will go to college will commence the study of the professions that we. some day. hope will be beneficial to humanity and will better the world. Though we shall no longer be a part of the Academy after next June. yet I hope we will be able to continue our fraternal relations with every one con- nected with it. Let us continue our brotherhood. one with another: a brother- hood formed here, by the great good we have derived from our associations with one another. 'We pledge our friendship to each and every one of you. both to teachers who have helped us to become members of this graduating class, and to pupils who we sincerely hope will some day be members of future graduating classes. Xthile we are far away in Colleges, we shall be absent in body. but our very souls will strive for nearness. that the good of your induence and environment may remain with us as we struggle over life's rugged roads, prompted. encour- aged, and inspired by "Amore Fraternof' or brotherly love. JOHN W. BRITTINGHAM, Class Orator. '19, THE .JRC-IUIU Sl History of the Class of 1919 The class of 111149 entered the Academy in the fall of l'.'l-l, with eighty-one members, and this was the largest Freshman class that had ever been enrolled by the .-X. R. C. up to that time. However. we decreased the percentage of demotions of the preceding years. XYith this honor, some of our classmates fell by the wayside during the stormy weather of the Freshman year, and at the beginning of the Sophomore year. we had decreased to about sixty. This was partly due to the fact that some of our classmates felt that their wonderful intellectual abilities would be restricted in such a narrow sphere as the Academy, and that the only proper thing for them to do was to get out into the world and make their name famous: while others felt that they needed a rest from study, and the Academy was not giving them a sufficient time for this, so it was necessary for them to continue their education at some other noted institution, or test their undoubted abilities in the business life of the community. Having passed a somewhat quiet year as Sophomores, we entered the Inter- mediate year with a decrease to about tifty. Here again we see the desire among the members to go out in the world and be their own masters. Many went of their own accord, while others were persuaded by the faculty to take such a course. Having completed our intermediate year, we entered the junior class with about thirty-tive. At the same time. we went from the Land of Exemption to that of Examination, and this was quite a change for a few of us. At this time, most of us had high ambitions. There were electrical, mechanical, civil engineers, doctors. lawyers and big business men among our number, while some of us were undecided as to what we wished to become, but were able to come to a more definite decision after standing some of the examinations of that year. And now when on our last voyage across this stormy and unknown sea called Knowledge, there are only seventeen who are able to take the trip, and even among this number some have become sea-sick. and wish to quit the ship. and land on some unknown island, regardless of the scarcity of their provisions. but just for the sake of being on land once more. Having related to you a brief history of the class of 1919, I will endeavor to give you a short history and description of each of the present members, and for the sake of convenience I will relate them in alphabetical order. The first of our noted number is Mr. M. D. Belding, commonly called "Milt" He came to us from the XYoodlawn Grammar School, and has made quite a record while at the Academy as an athlete, and also in the Military Department, where he ranks as Stable Sergeant. "Milt" has the distinction of being the only Freshman in the Senior Class. Milt is tall and fat. He has black hair and black eyes, and may always be distinguished in a crowd by his amorpheus and crag-like face. Mr. Belding and Mr. Harry Smith form what is called by the class "The Leavenworth Clique." the sole purpose of which is to worry Mr. Henry Robinson. The next on the roll is Mr. James Boatwright, who is generally called "Boaty." Boaty comes to us from Houghton Grammar School, and is noted for S2 THE .JRC-1919 his great oratorical ability, and his great love of order. In the Military Depart- ment, lloaty is captain of Company X. Mr. lloatwright is short, fat, ruddy complexion. and a very red nose. probably due from overwork. Mr. Iloat- wright and Mr. john Murphey form what is called by the class "The Sing Sing Clique." the sole purpose uf which is for the uplift of the student body. Then comes Mr. john llrittingham, who entered the class at the beginning of this year, and for this reason we know very little about him, except that he is quite a lady killer and some dancer. llritt came to us from Klt. St. KIary's Academy at Crumettesburg. Maryland, where he made quite a record as an orator. llritt is short. fat, black hair, black eyes. He can always be distinguished hy his inevitable green tie. Mr. Clarence Cohen is next! Beg your pardon, Adjutant Cohen! He comes from Monte Sano School and is noted for his great military ability. Clarence says that the secret of rapid promition in the military department is the color guard of the lland. I would like to say that Mr. Cohen has revised the tactics as to the manner in which the commissioned officers shall wear their swords, and has made several other notable changes which he believes will be for the betterment of the llattalion. Mr. Cohen is tall, thin, sandy hair, blue eyes. and may always be distinguished by the softness of his voice. Mr. Charles Daniels was added to our number in the -lunior year. Mr. Daniels came from the Millen High School, where he made quite a record as a student. Mr. Daniels is noted for his great love of the ladies, and his apprecia- tion of a good joke, especially those which he relates himself. Charlie says: ll-I-I do-n-t s-s-s-see how you g-g--e-t that way M-Mr. C-Cason.l Neverthe- less. Charlie is a good sport, and helps to lighten our school work by side remarks which he is frequently making in the class room. Mr. Charles Doolittle, who came to us from the Houghton School, is called in general by the class "Charles," and is noted for his business ability. Charles is president of the Senior class, and is editor of the Annual. He is making quite a success of his task, even though the business manager. Mr. Cohen. is afraid that Charlie might run away with some of the nuances, he has the entire conlidence of the remainder of the class. Charlie is noted for his bull-headed- ness-nevertheless, he has become very popular, both in the class and on lower Ilroad. Charlie tall, fat, light hair and black eyes, but even with the draw- back of his Visage, he makes quite an imposing picture. Mr. Fleming comes next. I would like to tell you a lot about him, but I haven't the space or the time. and I suppose his classmates will take care of him. Ile came from Monte Sauo School, and is commonly called by the class "Red," He may always be recognized by the jet black color of his hair. Ive next Find the name of Mr. Philip Goldstein upon the roster, commonly called "Goldy." He comes to us from Davidson Grammar School, and is noted for the fact that he is the strongest man in the class, even though Mr. Henry Robinson contests this distinction. He has been with us during the entire live years. and has time after time impressed this upon us. He is further noted .for being the only man who never asks a question. Philip is short and thin. He has jet black hair and gray eyes, and also a very fair complexion. THE .JRC-IUIU 83 Mr. Frank Green, the well-known chemist, came to us from the XYoodlawn Grammar School. Frank has lately invested in a very dangerous machine. and he keeps the class worried for fear he will get pinched for speeding. Mr. tireen is tall, thin, has blue eyes and is of a fair complexion. lie is noted for having discovered a new formula for hydrochloric acid, H. Cl, Mr. Griffin came to us from Houghton. XYylie has made quite :1 record while at the .Xcademy as an athlete, while at the same time he has made other records out of school with his fair complexion and cute little dimples in his cheeks. Mr. John Murphey, who was said to be a student of lloughton, is noted for the fact that he can get credit for all his work, except that under Major, without opening his books until the night before examination. He has been credited even vfth Mr. Cordle's work, and Mr. Cordle is saifl to claim that nobody ever passes anything under him, unless they study every night. lly way of emphasis, I would also like to state that a certain student in last year's class caused him to break his record. Johnny, as l have stated before, is joined with Mr. lloat- wright in a league for the uplift of the student body. Mr. Herbert Nachman, commonly known by the class as "XYhat used to be, but isn't now," came to us from Monte Sano School, and 1nay be recognized by the following description: short, thin, black hair, black eyes, and a very sarcastic smile. Herbert is commonly called by the class "Nach," and is noted for his chemical ability. In the Military department, Herbert ranks as lst Ser- geant in Co. D. Mr. Henry Robinson, the most perfect lady in the class, came to us from Houghton School. Henry is composer of the class song, and has many other notable things to his credit. In the Military Department, Henry ranks as lst Lieutenant of the Band, and has made quite a success of getting all of the dis- cord out of the instruments. XVe sincerely hope that he will be able to get his drum in shape by Memorial Day. Mr. Harry Smith, who is generally associated with Mr. Belding, the two being called by the class "The Gold Dust Twins." as one is never seen without the other, came to us from the XYoodlawn School, and has made quite a hit at the Academy, both as a technical student, and as an athlete. Harry is the right hand man on Fifteenth street. He is also very popularin certain other parts of the city. Harry is a sergeant in the Military Department, and probably would have been higher, but for the fact that he takes everything so seriously. The class wishes me to state that Harry has been awarded the Croix de Guerre for bravery in action while in Mr. Slappey's French class. The reason of this award is withheld by the censor until after graduation, because it might be of use to Mr. Slappey in probing some of the mysteries of his class room. Mr. Sylvester. whose chief ambition is to become a student at the Uni- versity of Georgia, came to the Academy from Monte Sano School. "Syl," as he is called by the class, is a hard-working student, and never lets his social duties interfere with his studies. Doughty has made quite a record as a track man, winning the cup last year. In the Military Department he has the rank! of lst Lieutenant, Company B. S4 THE .JRC-1919 Then comes Mr. Walker. the boy who put the bull in bulling, and took the pleasure out of living. Mr. lYalker is commonly known in the class as "Snook- umsf' He came to the Academy from the Central School. where he stood high in his class. He has continued his good standing while at the Academy, and at the present time has the prospect of being the lirst honor man in the class. In the Military Department he has the rank of Captain in Company A. I-ast. but not least. is Mr. George XYright, commonly called George by the class. George is short, fat, black hair, black eyes, and can always be distinguished in a crowd by his fair complexion. In the Military Department George is Captain of Company C, and probably if he had devoted his time to athletics, he would have taken honors in high jumping. I cannot say that this is the end of the history of the class of 1010. I hope it is only the beginning. but this is all I am able to relate, and I thank you one and all for your kind attention. Faculty A nnouncements tll Mr. Charles Daniels wishes me to announce that Mr. Copeland is from Sugar Yalley. lll Mr. -I. L. Skinner wishes me to announce that Mr. Cordle is receiv- ing three to four letters daily from France, and that the handwriting is that of a Madamoiselle. For further information, please see Mr. deBruyne. f3l Mr. Slappey wishes me to announce that he is still a single man, but willing. and that he will be at the main door after the exercises to receive any bids which may be ottered. l-ll Mr. Scruggs wishes for me to announce that he has ordered some hollow glass tubing for the chemistry lab, which he hopes will be here in a few days. CAPT, XY. C. FLEAHNG. Class I-lixtorian, '19, Our iirst class meeting was sounded ot? at the command of our honorable THE .JRC-1919 b5 Class Minutes Ladies and Gentlemen: It has been my pleasure during the years of WIS-19151 to act as Secretary and Treasurer of this class, and during the time which has elapsed l have wit- nessed, and not only witnessed. but recorded many things which have happened in our class meetings and elsewhere. I will now submit some of the things which the class has accomplished and is to accomplish in the near future. President our career as a class in a body and ever since then judgment tMr. Doolittleb on the 15th of December, 1918. This meeting started we have been increasing in was to decide and in knowledge. The main purpose of this meeting on the erecting of a slab to the memory of the late Mr. il. XY. Farmer. After much discussion regarding the price, design, size and etc.. it was A motion class pins and after weeks we tinally passed. was then made that we take immediate action on the matter of the and rings. A committee was appointed to draw and submit a design a guarantee from Mr. Fleming, the chairman. of getting them in two received them two months later. Now the second broadside was tired on the 18th of December 13 days later 5. Nothing but a wrangle was accomplished, due to the absence of the President and the Secretary. Mr. lValker. the Yice-President. presided. After many days of holiday during the "Flu" ban we were at last able to meet on the 22nd of january, 1919. This meeting was of considerable importance due to the many brilliant ideas conceived by the members of the class while Chemistry, Trig. English, etc., could not interfere. A motion was then made and seconded that the matter of the A. R. C. Light. a magazine published in the past, be dropped and that we publish a school annual. This motion was unani- mously carried and the movement is now well under way. Some of the leading merchants in town have given us advertisements and we are going to publish an annual this year which will be highly appreciated by us, and not by us only, but by other people throughout the city, state and nation as well. Then a motion was made and seconded that prompt attention be given the matter of our class day. Prompt attention was given it and as a result we are able so amply to en- tertain you. Two days later we were again able to have a wrangle. This meeting was mainly for the discussion of the details regarding the annual. After an appro- priate talk by Mr. Copeland regarding the price, size and other details, we elected the following men to act as our staifx Editors-in-Cliivf. . . Literary Editor ..........

Our next meeting was held on the 27th of january, 1919. The main issue of this meeting was the discussion of the details of the slab. The price. size and design was detinitely decided upon. and has now been approved by the lloard of Education and the Trustees of the School. ln our next assembling on the Slst, our President announced the death of Henry Card, one of our class members of last year. A committee was appointed to obtain or order a tloral design for him. Through the prompt attention of Hr. XYright we were able to send one. Our next meeting was launched on the -lth of February, 1019. After read- ing a list of the participators, which you see here. we elected Mr. llrittingham as our class orator. Yery soon you will be able to judge this appointment as you see lit. The program submitted by Mr. Fleming was linally accepted and through some alterations by our English teacher, Mr. Cason, you are now able to enjoy it. During our class meetings of the year many thrilling incidents have occurred such as arguments. reprimandings, congratulations, good order, lights and exhi- bitions of oratorical ability. For instance, Mr. Robinson became very much infuriated over a statement made about a certain young lady. rose in anger. but was quickly removed and placed in the adjoining desk. At our last meeting Mr. Cohen was chosen as class prophet on the resigna- tion of Mr. Sylvester. Mr. Cohen was also made to sign a check. Now, ladies and gentlemetrl hopeyouhave borre uith me through the talk l have just made and I will to the best of my ability endeavor to summarize the main things our class of '19 has accomplished. l 1st. lYe are erecting a slab to the memory of Mr. il. XY. Farmer: 2nd, ll'e are laboring over our annual which will be highly appreciated: Srd. lYe have both original and beautiful pins and rings, and, -lth. XYe have assembled this program.

I was chosen as class poet,h Xl hy, I really cannot see. There are sixteen brighter members: Xlhat made them pick on ME? In our youth, we were a hundred. But exams our ranks have cleft. So, the ending of our journey. Finds sixteen and l are left. Now, number one is Belding. And since Fate must joke, .-Xlas This smiling red-faced "freckless". Leads the roll-call of the class. Then comes "Jimmie" Boatwright, Loved by Hazel best of all. He's great at joking teachers. But his marks are. Oh! so sznall. Then follows "Jonnie" Brittingham, Our orator so punk: He waves his hands with gest".es wild, But his words are only bunk. Next we have Big Cohen, Our .-Xdjutant so fat. VVith the body of a giant. And the knowledge of a gnat. Daniels, fair, of Millen. Follows close upon his feet: He captivates each maiilen, That he may chance to meet. Then comes our honored President. lYhose faults I cannot shirk- Doolittle is his cognomen. And likewise is his work. Next is Cornelius Fleming. Better known to us as "Red", lYith a brain so large and brilliant. That it glows upon his head. Xtunlier six is Philip Golstsin. Our anti-Bolshevik: He thinks lxe's some deliator, lint can only raise a squeak! The next tmoii the list is Green The linguist of the Bunch. He eats up foreign languages. As a ireshman does a lunch.

And next is darling Harry Smith. Our lovely baby boy. He's the ideal of his parents. And his te:1cher's ray of joy. :Xt last comes "Tough" Sylvester He's lazy, well. you bet! If he'd started ten years sooner. He would be senior yet. Near the end is Miller lYalker, That military Chan, Such a nut is he for honors. That we're hardly on the map. And then the last and longest.

JOHN E.h'IUHPHEY,JR, Class Poet, Class 'l9. BS THE .IRC-1919 Class Prophecy, 1919 The day was very warm and sultry and not one in which you could study easilyg so, laying aside my Iinglish lzook, I picked up my cap and started out for a walk. I walked and walked and soon I found myself in a large forest. Not far ahead I saw a large lake. l walked to the edge of the lake and there sat down. lt was very cool and pleasant there. Suddenly a thought struck me: it would not be long until Commencement and after that we would all be scattered to the four-winds. This naturally turned my thoughts to the future. I looked into the lake and in its mirror-like depth I seemed to see many strange shapes and forms. Gradually they took detinite shapes and I saw myself riding in a very rapidly moving train. The world seemed beautiful indeed. Everything was tine until suddenly there was a territic crash, and I was thrown violently from my seat. There were cries from everywhere from people that had been hurt. Crawling out of the wreckage I helped the uninjured get the injured out. The engineer especially was badly hurt. Some minutes later several doctors arrived. but they said there was no hope for him. Suddenly a great cry arose: "Here he comes." "XYho is it F" I asked of a by-stander. "XYhy the great Doctor of course. He will save the lives of all." An automobile came rushing up and in it I saw a tine looking young doctor. His face looked very familiar to me. Indeed, it was no other than my old school mate. .Iohn Brittingham. After he had attended to the injured people, I walked over and spoke to john. He said that he had discovered a new substance that would heal any disease or injury. He also told me he was head doctor in johns Hopkins University. He invited me to go on to the city with him. XYe got into a machine and were driven along a line country road. I noticed a very beautiful farm, and as we passed near the entrance, we noted a large sign which said: "Green's Scien- tific Farm." Vie stopped at the farm for water and found our old friend Frank Green the owner. Frank said he was doing very Fine and that he was making a wonderful success because he was applying Chemical methods to farming. XYe soon took leave of Frank and we wished him continued success, and then went our way. Arriving at the city I took leave of john and went to a hotel. As I was approaching a table to write I noticed a rather small gentleman walk up the isle of the hotel. Everybody seemed to bow and give away before him, small as he was. His stature looked very familiar to me. He suddenly turned, and to my surprise and delight, it was my old friend Miller XYalker. Miller was the owner of this large hotel and a great leader of the many social functions then going on in the city. Suddenly Miller asked to be excused, as he was in a very big hurry to arrange a large dance for the 'I'ubman Seniors that very evening. I then went out into the street, and, seeing a cab in sight. I hailed it. To 1ny surprise the driver was Milton Ilelding. Milton said that he was THE .JRC-1919 sw doing a thriving business and, in fact, had monopolized the jitney business of the town. He also stated that he was married and had four beautiful children. I told him I would like to go down to the bank. Milton was a fine driver and we arrived in the Iiord without a mishap. I told Milton that I hoped his business would continue to prosper, whereupon he stated that he was going to stay in this business only a very few months, and then retire. As I went into the bank I saw the door of the President's oflice standing ajar and. upon looking in, I saw George Xliright. George was very glad to see me. and when I asked him liow lie had become President of the National lix- change Ilank he blushed. as he was always in the habit of doing. and said that by an application of "'l'rig" he had workeil out a great formula for calculation and thereby had become President. XX'hile we were talking a young lady came in. To my surprise, George introduced me to Mrs. George lliright, Ir. George said, 'Pri-you know probably. of course, that Mrs. lYright's father was also President of this bank. I soon took my departure and as I walking down the street I suddenly began to feel hungry. I looked up and saw a sign, "Dairy I.unch." I went in and found that my old friend XYyly Griffin was the owner, Xtyly said his business was now so large that XYalton Dairy Lunch and all others were forced out of business. I soon took leave of XYyly and started again on my walk. As I walked slowly down the street my eye was attracted to a large sign which read: "Sylvester and Daniel's lleauty Parlors." "Could this," I said, "really be some of the old class I mounted the stairs and entered the waiting room. I saw first Charles. He said Doughty was busy but he wished I would wait awhile. lYhile waiting. he told about the place, He said his main duties were to polish linger nails and talk to the ladies in the waiting room. Doughty soon returned and I asked what detained him so long. He replied that he had been beautifying several Tubman Seniors for Commencement Dance. I soon took my departure, and further down the street my eye was attracted by still a larger sign. This sign was peculiarly worded as follows: "Learn to Love Young. Special rates to A. R. C. Boys and Tubman Girls. Information from long experience. H. Robinson, Love Expert." "'Well, well," I said, so Henry was trying from his own experience to help those poor young people. Anyway. I found him happily married and enjoying life thoroughly. I now came again upon the street and chanced to buy a paper from a boy. I noticed in large black head lines: "Lf S. Senator makes most wonderful speech on record. Startles whole Country." I happened to glance further down in the column and noted this famous Senator was my old friend Philip Goldstein. Further on in the paper I read that if it had not been for the "Great Editor and His XYonderful Management of the Great Firm of Doolittle K Co., that there would have been a very serious financial crisis." Charlie, as I under- stood it. was the Editor-in-Chief of the largest paper in the world, and also head ofthe largest Firm in XYall Street. I now happened to go back to the old school, and I saw two of the old class men there. I noticed a note on the Bulletin Board which read: "Major XV. C. Fleming, Conimandant and Professor in Mathematics." Under this was, 90 THE .JRC-1019 "Captain H. Nachman, Assistant Principal and Instructor in English." Cornelius certainly was strict on the "report business." He had each Sergeant go around at inspection and measure the length of the hair on each boy's head. If it was a quarter of an inch too long the poor fellow found himself back at extra drill. Yet Major "Red" had a wonderful Military Department. Herbert, of course, was in the Commandant's oftice, doing duty as otlice boy. while Major Fleming explained the Sign. Cosign and Tangent. I asked them if they had heard any- thing of the other members of the old class. Herbert said he heard that Harry Smith had gone into the mining business and that Harry's favorite pasttime was weighing tons and tons of metal. He said that. in fact. the matter of weighing tons had made such an impression upon Harry's mind that he had married a lady by the name of XYeddington. As I walked along towards one of the parks I saw an enormous crowd gathered around a platform. I learned from some one in the crowd that a great evangelist was speaking. .-Xs I edged closer in I heard his tiery voice say: "Come. ye brethren. unto me. I will teach ye how to do good in this world." This tiery orator continued to speak and I thought it surely must be Billy Sunday: but no. it was our old classmate. james Iloatwright. .lames certainly excelled Billy Sunday. XYhy he made strong men cry and say they would give up the old habits and reform. .linfs doing this kind of work, of course. was no surprise. for we had all thought that .lim would make the world much better to live in. I went up and spoke to him and he said that he had the world's record for making such addresses. I bade him good-bye and. wishing him continued success, I continued on my way. As I walked on I thought to myself. surely there was some one else in the class. This was recalled by my coming suddenly to a crowd. I looked up quickly and saw a large building on fire. The flames were spreading and then came the tire engine. :X sharp voice gave a command and as I looked around I saw my old classmate, -lohn Murphey, who was Chief of the Fire Department. .lohnny certainly knew how to manage his men well and it was not long before the tire was under control. XYhile watching the firemen. a hose was suddenly turned in my direction and I was soaked with water. Everything seemed to fade before me. I jumped up off the ground. for the wind was blowing so hard it had washed the water of the lake over me. I now hurried home. realizing that all my happy thoughts of the future were but a day dream.

Lamar and the Alexander H. Stephens.both organized by the late Mr. Farmer. The debates in the school are between representatives of the two societies. There is a Faculty Cup presented each year to the society winning the largest number of debates. This cup is to become the property of the society which wins it three years in succession. So far. the joseph R. Lamar Society has won it one year, and the Alexander H. Stephens Society also one year. The Academy has had some very good debates since the organization of these literary societies. "Long and heated arguments" have been staged by members of both societies. This year, on account of the "Flu," interruptions and the great rush to make up time, our debates have been somewhat curtailed. However. we managed to get one debate just after the last quarantine and hope to have more before the end of the school year. The subject was. "Resolved that the United States should build and maintain a Navy second to none in the world." The Alexander H. Stephens'representatives had the affirmative and were Capt. C. A. Doolittle. Lieut. D. Sylvester and Serg. BI. D, Belding. The joseph R. Lamar representa- tives had the negative side of the question and were Corps, Hook and Battey. and Pvt. Tobey. After an hour or so of rather warm discussions, in which each of the six young gentlemen nobly acquitted himself, the decision was rendered in favor of the affirmative. The Academy has wonderful prospects before her for debating. and we sincerely hope that every effort will be put forward in the future to secure an even higher standard in this most important phase of a young man's education.
