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.

THE .JRC-1910 O
Foundation of the Academy of
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

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
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.

Much knowledge they have gained:

Our Flag with the accent on the word ourl Or, izi words that bring the
meaning home more clearly. "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."

Last, but not least, comes our friend, XYilliam the janitor. The pictures
of the school would not be complete without him, as he has been with us for
many a year. He was he1'e when the present Seniors were Freshmen, and they.
after june, will leave him still here. to see other Classes come and go. If it were
not for ll'illiam we would freeze in the winter, and if it were not for him we
would be wading in chalk and paper. which the Freshmen take great delight in
throwing. So, here is to lYilliam, may he continue at the Academy for many
a year to come, and may his life be made more enjoyable by the future Freshmen
throwing less shot and chalk.

Iiditor, C.xr'r. XY. C. 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
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
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.

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
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

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-

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
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.

su as tu represent the Academy npnn the diamond this year.
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.

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
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
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
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.

a well organized team, and plays a great many high schools in the neighboring

the number of men out it appeared that the Academy would make a good show-

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
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

Class Events, 1919
FRANK M. 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.

Presentation of Memorial
Ladies and Gentlemen:
It gives me a great pleasure, yet when l think of what it really means. it
takes the pleasure out of performing the duty which is now before me. and that
is the presentation of a Memorial Slab from the Senior Class. in memory of
Mr. il. 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.

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.

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
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.
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
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.

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-

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

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.
These enumerated accomplishments, few as they may seem, represent con-
stant work on the part of the members of the class. the cartoonists and the faculty.

Dear Friends, I've been appointed,
To bore you for awhile.
Now I'tn very fair at rhythm,
But my rhyming is quite vile.
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.
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.
Grithn follows on the roll.
.-Xn Athlete, short but true.
l'n1 told lie got his training.
From serving xY3lt'.lIl'S stew.
Then l'ave we Herbert Xaclunan.
The long lost Missing Link,
He might have made a hundred,
But he never learned to think.
Now follows Henry Robinson.
Our charming sutfragette.
He's very, very deen in love.
But is not married. yet.
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.
XYrif1ht. the scientilic man.
Always, when it comes to ladies.
You will find him right on hand
There remains but one to mention,
.ind I close my dull refrain :-
Stuhborn, indolent and lazv.
He has been his teacher's bane.
Such we are.-with few high records
Not a genius in the crew,
But by sweating, digging, tugging.
XX e have somehow muddled through.
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
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.

The Debating Societies
The Academy has two debating societies. the joseph R. 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
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.

N. B. A-X poet has been found in the Freshman class. llere is an example
ot some ot his work. It is said that he received his inspiration after he had hlled
his hrst date and had left the sweet little thing at the late hour of ten l'. KI.
Kiss me sweet,
Kiss me cunning,
Kiss me quick,
Daddy is coming.
Our eyes have met.
Our lips not yet,

I'll get you yet.

Mv D.xu.v T.xs1c
Most any day in the week.
If it's sunny, if it's bleak.
I'm on my way, so to speak,
To time class.
There gathers a crowd of boys,
A few to study. a few to make noise,
And in their pockets all kinds of toys.
Now when I'm there I read a book
XYhile watching "Fess" with a sneaky look.
He seems to think that IYID a crook-but I aint.
Suddenly you'1l hear the sound of shot.
Followed by, " 'Fessf how much time have I got?"
"You'll have more if you don't cut that rot. liget me?l."
COLDEN Rn-rev, '19.

XX'hen you recognize the cry
Of an eraser as it goes llying by,
lust lie low and prepare to die-should he iind it out.
Sometimes Freshmen turn quite green
And mournfully shout, 'Tm hit on the bean!"
.lust then the bell begins to ring,
Some of us shimmy, the rest of us sing-
Xow is the time to do anything-but study.
Then there is an insurrection.
Prisoners running in every direction.
"Fess" raises a big objection,
Using "time" for his protection.
As we rush out like angels from above.
Someone yells, "Don't push. just shove."
"Come back," yells "Fess". "the class isn't dismissed."
But for us there is eternal bliss-until
Tomorrow. He spoke too late.
X. B. The above was turned in as poetry, but we seriously have our doubts
about it. The author is a -lunior, and as he came to us with tears in his eyes
and said that the above was his lirst masterpiece, we consented to print it. All
of you who care to throw brickbats and rotten eggs after reading the wonderful
masterpiece. please kindly direct them at the author. not the editor.
Goldstein says. "Yen dere's a tire in a clothing store some spring ofer
coats. some fall ofer coats. everybody pants and goes vests ven a tire is burning
up der store."
And yet he is still alive after making a remark like this.
C.xRswELL J.: "I found a button in my salad last night."
