Roland E. Brooks (Superintendent)
Yes. sir. Brooks—but by no means a "babbling Brook." When Mr. Brooks opens his mouth and speaks, we understand why Shakespeare said what he did about "sermons in stones and running Brooks." His apt way of proclaiming our transgressions takes the sting out of them and makes him beloved by even the worst of us.
J. O. ALLEN (Principal)
"Manhood not scholarship is the first aim of education." With ideals like this behind them the A. H. S. graduates cannot fail to go far and accomplish much. Mr. Allen docs the difficult thing and sets the example to illustrate his theory.
Mary L. Brosnan (History)
"Nature made her what she is and never made such another." Well, frankly, how could even nature make another to equal "Miss Mamie?" If you don’t know what to do. ask her— she’ll tell you. and make you think that you thought of it yourself.
Jessie B. Whitmore (History)
Miss Whitmore means just what she says and not a "Whitmore" for less). She believes in "being yourself" and as applied to Miss Jessie B. Whitmore, that suits us just fine.
Eugenia W. Stone (Latin)
And a peculiar Stone she is. too. Rather like an opal—changeable, but delightful in all her aspects. The teacher, who above all others, can show us our faults and make us anxious to reform.
Bessie Turner Dobbins (Latin)
Dobbins, yes, but there is nothing "mulish" about our Latin instructor. She merely states a fact, that is all—and if we venture to protest? Well, it just isn’t done.
Claire Greene (English)
Just what's in a name? Green—and we bet her relatives call her "Red" or "Carrot." She’s the lady who manages to enjoy a joke hugely with her eyes, and not crack a smile the whole time.
Frances S. Garvin (English)
"Where words are scarce, they arc seldom spent in vain." Miss Garvin makes her actions speak for themselves: for instance, we’ve heard that she serves ice cream at her club meetings.
Billie Love (English)
Do we love Miss Billie Love? Foolish question! One good reason for this is that instead of "packing up her troubles in the old kit bag." she has never been known to unpack them. She just hasn’t got them. The big reason though is "smile, smile, smile."
Flora Dawson Terry (French)
Behold the owner of the elusive "Regent’s." All of us are convinced that Mrs. Terry knows more about French than the Frenchmen—so don’t try to argue.I hronqtecska
Marylou Britt (Science)
Miss Britt has the admiration and respect of every one who ever opened a physics book. She actually sees sense in it.
Clara Gibbs Dally (Science)
There is no "dilly dallying’' in Miss Daily’s room. She knows her science—you know she knows it—you know that you must know yours or 'dally’’ long in learning it.
Lacy Stephens Terry (Science)
This is "Fess," who told the Freshmen what to expect if the world stopped turning around; and then struck them speechless with the "rat experiment."
Orion Mitchell (Mathematics)
Mr. Mitchell produces both geometry sharks and football heroes. He is equally good at both but excites more interest with his gridiron stars.
FLORA Cox (Mathematics)
Miss Cox is a good ’Math'’ teacher but have you seen her P. C. Club perform? They certainly swing a wicked baseball bat.
Willie Wood (Mathematics)
Wood? Would what? Would teach Freshmen Algebra, that’s what! Miss Wood is famous for having the most infectious laugh in high school.
Bonnie Hunter (Mathematics)
And a Bonnie good Hunter is she! She actually found brains in Freshmen, besides being able to find square roots any time of the day.
Sybil Hampton Moran (Home Economics)
Everything, from broken legs and heart trouble to indigestion and injured feelings, finds its way to Mrs. Moran. She always knows what to do for them.
H. M. Mills (Commercial)
This is a Mill that grinds slow and exceedingly fine. When Mr. Mills sends one of his products into the business world, great things are expected of him.
Esther B. Waddell (Commercial)
"Experience is by industry achieved, and perfected by the swift course of time." This applies to Mrs. Waddell’s method of teaching typewriting. The results speak well for the motto and the teacher.
Elizabeth Sneed Bell (Music)
And a melodious Bell she is. Just this year she has to her credit an operetta and a minstrel, besides numerous musical programs for chapel. She has trained an orchestra that is a credit to the Albany High School.

Message from the Principal
It has been a great year. Due in no small degree to the fine spirit of co-operation and leadership of this class of 27, every undertaking of the year at the school has been a success. The class of '27 has led and the student body has followed.
1 he most marked achievement of the year has been the acquirement by the student body of a student-body consciousness, a sense of cohesion, an esprit de corps, a feeling of pride and joy in the school.
In consequence of this fine spirit, we have been able to do some things that have meant much to the school this year and which will mean more in the years to come.
The Student Council has been organized and has done most helpful work in co-ordinating faculty and student thinking.
The various clubs organized during the year have given a touch of spontaneity, individuality and variety to all our school life. Especially is this to be noted in the assembly. The efficiency and fine sportsmanship of the athletic teams of the school are highly commendable. The intellectual caliber of individual players and the team-work of the squad were outstanding characteristics of our championship football team. The support given athletics and all other enterprises of the school by students and community at large has been highly gratifying. It is evident that the citizens of Albany believe in their high school. They have given us an excellent building and equipment. But the community can not build the school nor the school the community. Nor can either in itself build itself. But in collaboration they can build both a great school and a great community.
The High School looks forward with eagerness to the task.Thron.itccsK4

In the (garden of zdhCemovies
"It was ar old-fashioned garden. And it carried me back To that dear little shack."
CHERE I found my Memory Book. What a storehouse of memories it held! I urning slowly its time-colored leaves I found a note from him whom I thought I loved so dearly. Yes, this was the very note
that gave me the awful three' in deportment, and it was that same year we disgraced ourselves by getting barefooted during recess. Our poor distracted teacher tried so hard to make us set a good example for the others, for we were seventh graders.
Here s a piece of ceiling, where did that come from? Oh, yes, twas in the sixth grade that the ceiling fell, hitting Avon Hall on the head. Such excitement, when the rain began to pour through and we were shifted to the office for lessons.
And. this is a clipping announcing the winners in the State poster contest.
Here are mementos of my high school days. The preliminaries for the district meet—the great occasion of the year! Our class seems to have been fairly well represented. Walter Jones won the declamation contest his Sophomore and Senior years, while Sarah Campbell had first in reading her Sophomore year.
"High School Opera Declared Great Success!” This play, "Cinderella,” marked our debut in the theatrical world. What an entrancing cook Mary made, while Edith excellently portrayed the role of mischievous Jack Frost.
Oh—a prom card! Whose party? Why surely one of Katharyne Jones's. And who in the world is J. P. V.? J—P—V? Let’s see—J—John Pray Ventulett, that's it. We used to have some romantic proms 'around the circle.’
Legion Hall to entertain the grave and stately Seniors. And the next year’s Juniors entertained us royally with a cabaret dance at the same place. What happy thoughts remain of our student frolics!
Goldie Kelleher was a genius even then. I wonder just what she has done with that wonderful talent?
A Junior year prom card!! I remember the fun we had fixing up theo
Ah! Here comes our Senior year, dearest, happiest, best-loved year of all. Our whole life seemed just a preparation for its work and play. Duty and Laughter went hand in hand through all the sunlit hours. Romping Mischief stood on tiptoe to steal from Joy her shining arrows and sent them quivering into every heart. During that golden age our chief interest outside classroom activities seems to have been athletics. What a football team we had, and how we thrilled as game after game piled up the honors till the hope of being State champions rose high in our hearts. How eagerly we went into the fray on Thanksgiving Day, only to suffer bitter defeat at the hands of the LaGrange team! Had we ever been so heart-broken? But never did we love our school and team more dearly than on that blackest day of all the year. The next day was officially declared "Mourners' Day." We attended classes but all the kind words of sympathy and encouragement on the part of our teachers fell on deaf ears. Nothing could keep our broken spirits from the thought of the lost championship.
During that most wonderful of years, from the Council Fire of our Chieftain. Francis Shackelford, came the "Pow-Wow," our splendid essay in the field of journalism. "Shack’s" untiring energy and efficiency were the motor forces behind our success.
Another equally high precedent was set by the Class of '27. While we were "Lords of the School," the Student Council was organized with Stephen Hofmayer as president. This marked the first step toward student government made in Albany High, and how collegiate we felt, when meetings of this wonderful organization were called. It gave us a higher sense of honor, for we felt that we and the faculty were co-workers in the great school system.
And here is a piece of my graduation frock showing that the happy year has ended. Pure and white it lies against the page, a reflection of the unclouded heart of girlhood.
There are many memories, sweet and bitter, happy and sad, but the sweetest, the happiest, and often the most foolish memories lie in a girl’s memory book, that book that will some day bring such pleasant reminiscences.
hi the Qarden of‘Dreams
|EHOLD! Seniors on the eve of Graduation—Plans! Plans! Plans! little, big and assorted—pipe dreams, mostly. My brain is fairly bursting with a jumble of ideas and woe is me, if my future is in any way like the plans. I find most of my comrades are the same way. However—
“I dipped into the future
Far as human eye could see:
Saw the vision of the world
And all the wonders that were to he."
Among these wonders were Edith Simon and Nell Hudson striving to see which should be the "Ma Ferguson'' of Georgia. Gee! It was a battle. One plank in their platforms was identical. It was compulsory basketball for every high school in the State.
Katharyne Jones just blew in from Timbucoostan. Now there isn’t a corner of this dusty old world that hasn't felt the effects of Kat's curiosity. Her latest research has been on the subject "Why Boys Leave Home."
And speaking of research. Henry Cameron, the famous scientist, has set the world on fire with his newest discovery telling us "how to keep that superb figure.”
Mason Reid is running for President—of the United States this time—and is fully determined to make “Silent Cal" look like a slacker. He is a good bet —for look who is his campaign manager—Rosser Malone. If Mason is elected, Rosser will become that mysterious creature referred to as the "White House Spokesman.”
Francis Shackelford after much deliberation decided Ziegfeld was getting too old for the job, so he took over the Follies, making them Follier and Follier every year. He edits the New York Sun as a side line.
Albert Usborne has risen higher still in the field of athletics. Together with Harvard Hill he has made Harvard (College) win a game or two. Having been made immortal by this, he fondly looks back to his High School days and remarks that he got some of his best training patrolling the hall in front of the French room.
Walter Jones has forsaken the neckties and flowing hair of a poet to heed the call of the wild: i. e., to coach Yale’s football team.
Jerry Huie is in Europe taking in the sights. She has a unique method— she talks as long as her French holds out. then uses her eyes for the rest. According to reports she should patent it.
Dot McLaughlin, having finally decided not to worry over Aeneas's heaven any more, carries on a large firm's correspondence in seventeen languages —until she comes to a subjunctive.
Marion Lindsey and Jodie Whire have just finished the most complete book of jokes ever issued. Through the philanthropy of our millionaire, D. V. Holt, this masterpiece has been placed in the school library.
Sam Brown, the silver-tongued successor of Henry Grady, is now extolling the virtues of his native State to that most august body of law makers—the Senate. As his musical voice moves his listeners it recalls to the mind of Senator Robert Gusick a chapel program of long ago. but even more vividly it brings back the scene of Sam’s stage debut—the High School Minstrel.
I he constant wagging of Georgia Griffin's tongue wore out her natural teeth at the tender age of eighteen, so with her accustomed resourcefulness she married a deaf dentist, who keeps a large supply of false teeth on hand and prays for his hearing not to return.
Mary Mock, with her priceless gift of always knowing just what to say and when to say it, has gone far—she is Secretary of State under President Reid and is enforcing the Monroe Doctrine with all the perseverance she used in explaining it to us dumb ones in High School.
Lillian Campbell attained fame by living to the ripe old age of one hundred and sixteen years, for in her usual easy-going way she kept putting death off till tomorrow.
Harold Von Weller after astonishing Annapolis with his "beauty and brains," kindly consented to take charge of Uncle Sam’s Navy. Now the nation rests in peace, for are not Harold and his "devil dogs" on the job in Mexico, Nicaraugua. China, and other places of disturbance?
Cornelia Montgomery, after a long and successful career as America’s greatest prima donna, is writing her memoirs. Former classmates are waiting eagerly to see if she mentions the episode in which a "wasp" stings Cleopatra.
Marian Lee has become internationally famous as a Domestic Science Expert—though by a sacrifice of her family’s digestion. As of yore, a cook book moves her to rhapsodies that Elinor Glyn's mightiest effort could not inspire.
We don’t quite know where Louise Posey is but she still just adores football. The plain truth is that you can’t tell just what will happen to some of these creatures that make up the class of ’27 but behold—
‘Our revels now are ended. These our actors As I foretold you. were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air:
And like the baseless fabric of this vision.
The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces. The solemn temples, the great globe itself.
Yea. all which it inherits, shall dissolve.
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a track behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on. and our little life Is rounded with a sleep.”
hi the (garden of Tomorrow
HE scene closes! The curtain falls! A great class passes and a great ® J year at the Albany High School becomes history. "We have reached another milestone along the way. Glistening white in the sunlight of accomplishment, it marks the end of our school days. Here we rest a moment, lay down our script and staff and take our bearings anew."
How strange it all seems! Looking back with misty eyes it seems only yesterday that we began these happy days of school life. Eleven years have we been together. Eleven years of striving, loving, sorrowing, rejoicing, and living. Now it seems vague and utterly unreal. "Everything looms pleasant through the softening haze of time. Even the sadness that is past seems sweet." Our childhood days look very merry to us now. Gone are snubbings, heartaches and toothaches—all forgotten and only the ineffable sweetness remains.
But look ahead! As the sun sinks below the horizon and the shades of night envelop the country round, so our high school life is left in the shadow. Tomorrow is a new day. and we behold in the distance a brilliant sun rising slowly to its height. "The highway may not be strewn with roses, skies may not always be blue, orchards may not waft fragrant blossoms at our feet, sunshine may not tint the blades of grass with gold and silver dew, rainbows of promise may remain but gossamer webs of fancy, but nothing shall rob us of our dreams of achievement while youth and ambition sway our hearts.”
Now the hour has struck. The clock on the wall ticks off the eventful minutes one by one. We are together for the last time—tomorrow we receive our diplomas. The inevitable time has come and—"The moving Finger writes: and having writ, moves on.”
But there's no sting nor bitterness in our farewell—only happiness tinged with sadness—"it is the brightness not the darkness that we see when we look back. The sunshine casts no shadows on the past. The road that we have traveled stretches very fair behind us. We see not the sharp stones. We dwell but on the roses by the wayside, and the strong briers that stung us are. to our distant eyes, but gentle tendrils waving in the wind. God be thanked that it is so—that the ever lengthening chain of memory has only pleasant links, and that the bitterness and sorrow of today are smiled at on the morrow.”Thron tctsk

Is there any other class in the Albany High School that can boast of as many great athletes, literary masters, and other notables, as the Juniors?
In the forms of Athletics, just look how many “Future All-American" stars we have contributed to the success of the football team; while on the baseball team, look how many Babe Ruths; how many skilled “goal-ringers" on the basketball court.
We can also boast a few would-be Carusos, Marion Talleys, and Beethovens as well as saxophone players, who have shown and proved their abilities in the Orchestra and the plays which the Choruses have produced this year.
In our number are some of the best business managers and executives in the school, who are largely responsible for the success of the “Pow-Wow" and the “Thronateeska.”
In the literary field, who can equal some of our aspiring Poes. Shakespeares. Dickenses and O. Henrys, whose writings and compositions have graced the pages of many "Pow-Wows”?
JUNIOR CLASS. ALBANY HIGH SCHOOL
JUNIOR FACULTY HAS CHARGE OF ALL CLASSES
HORSELY BRANSPORD PRINCIPAL
Ben and Andrew Have Lost Jobs As Janitors.
As every dog has his day. and the Seniors have had theirs, now the Juniors have bow-wowed."
The day of days arrived, and the Juniors by far excelled all other instructors who have attempted the agony of teaching. Horsely Bransford. as principal, with Carolyn Hutto, as his assistant. "administered" with such tact and wisdom, that the popularity he obtained threatens to overthrow the general sphere of J. O.
Poor Ben and Andrew must seek employment elsewhere. as Jack Roberts and Mary Key Middleton proved so efficient as janitors that they were instantly hired by Jeff Jones, who twiddled his fingers in Mr. Brooks’s chair.
Fred Tounsley amused his History class by telling of his adventures and explorations near the cannibal country. the Cotton Mill. Mr. Tounsley shot his lip in other narrations.
The Geometry Class was taught by Franklin Jefferson, an authority on "circles." Having attained much experience near Rawson Circle, he was selected, since the lesson was about circles instead of squares and the accustomed triangles.
Another, due mention for the success of the day. is Virginia Atkinson, who taught a new branch of study, aesthetic dancing. Miss Atkinson gave an excellent program in Chapel, and she is to be congratulated upon the grace and beauty with which she conducted this class.
The rest of the faculty was composed of the high lights of the Junior class.
CAN WE BECOME SENIORS ?
Prospects Look Bad—Commencement Nears and Present Juniors Not Prepared.
It just can’t be fair the way the world has treated us! As far back as we can recall the Juniors have been highly respected, praised and looked up to. Of course, there are exceptions: for the present Junior class, the one of '27. is a striking one.
Because of the many outstanding failures in this class, there is every reason to expect that an additional grade will be added. In all events the question of the hour is. "Can we become Seniors?" As a result of speeches made in chapel the other day by Hon. R. E. and J. O. we were informed about the disastrous situation of the present Junior class.
Sarah Stokes and Helen Toliver have been caught leaving school at recess. Edwin Rabun and Helen South well were seen passing notes and Katherine F.ddlcman was impudent to Miss Garvin. Tiny Holman. Mariwil Brown, and Regina Faber are following in the footsteps of "Dune" and flunking out. However, to brighten things a bit. Marguerite Peacock and Margaret Cannon arc. under great difficulty, retain ing their honor records.
Margaret Arthur wfas feeling rather proud because she had finally secured a "one” in Geometry, but to cap the climax she was suspended from school because of chew ing gum in Miss Greene's class. She had her choice of the gum or English—in her estimation gum was preferable.
We find likewise that all incapability of being Seniors is not possessed by girls. In the boys’ classes there is no encouragement. The only silver lining that can be
found to our cloud is the winning of the Ready Writing contest by Carolyn Hutto and the Oratorical contest by Charlie Parker.
Julian Gortatowsky. Fred Bunting. James Osteen, and Charlie Johnson arc great disappointments to their leach crs. Julian was picking up for awhile but—well, what could you expect of Julian?
Of course, there are excep tions. but as a whole the present Juniors are not prepared to take the Senior gavel and again we ask you. hoping for a more favorable answer. "Can we become Seniors?”
ANGEL LIST ABANDONED The widely famed angels of Mrs. Terry’s equally famed angel list have come to earth at last, amid the shouts and cheers of their in feriors—the remaining study hall.
The announcement was gladly received by "Lessor” Terry who had brought his cot along so that he might sleep while awaiting his spouse.
The reason for the down fall of the would-bc-celestiaf beings is the turning over of the last study-hall to Mr. Allen and his understudy. Sam Brown. Now Equality. Justice, and Right, reign in our domicile.
Ply hiah. ye celestial angels. Mother Terry's watching nigh.
But Sam has frightened her away
And she waves you a fond good-bye. •
The poor angels are back on earth again.
And crying for Mother Terry.
But Sam is reigning the study hall
And all the rest are merry.
BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE SCHOOL ROOM DIGNITY
LOW DOWN ON THE HIGH-UPS
Much Startling News Gleaned By Bow-Wow Reporters.
In order to reveal to the members of the Junior class some "inside dope" on the dignified personages who "boss” them and incidentally to carry out the motto of this paper. "To see ourselves as others see us." the editors of the Bow-Wow have sent their reporters to all parts of the United States. They have worked diligently for months digging through the files of the daily papers of the country. Following arc some excerpts gleaned through their efforts:
BOY KILLS BEAR
The Horseshoe fS. C.) Herald November 23. 1892
Jesse Owens Allen, son of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Allen of Horseshoe, yesterday killed a huge bear while hunting in the woods back of his father’s house. The expert hunters and traopers of the state consider this quite a feat for a youngster of nine summers. Jesse is quite fond of hunting and frequently brings in large bags.
NEW DANCING CLASS STARTED
The Kentucky Wonder Jan. 5. 1789
It will be of much interest to the residents of this city, that Miss Jessie B. Whitmore, young society belle, has started a dancing class. Miss Whitmore will teach the latest steps of the new dances, the minuet and the Kentucky Reel!

JUNIOR "JESTERS” Trim Leesburg Lambs 40-3
In the second game of the season the Junior “Jesters'’ handed the Leesburg Lambs a 40-3 defeat. The game was very thrilling and ex - j citing, many fine points of the sport being brought to light. The coaches. Professor Mitchell and King Cole, were especially pleased with the manner in which the youngsters performed.
The stands were packed and jammed when the; Juniors took the field. Fred Bunting did the flinging for the “Jesters" allowing but I three hits, these being home runs. After the first inning the Leesburg players were completely baffled by his dc livery. Fred. like Red Grange who obtained his prowess as a football player by slinging milk bottles, became experienced as a pitcher by flinging newspapers.

The Sophomore Qlass of 1927
Whereas, the Sophomore Class of 1927, their most gracious majesties and honorable highnesses, have been the first class to enter as Freshmen the yawning portals of the new abode of the Albany High School: and
Whereas, if prospects are as bright in the future as they have been in the past, the above named group of self-styled celebrities will be the first four-year class to be graduated from same abode of said High School: and
Whereas, from the very beginning, they have valiantly withstood the onslaughts of compulsory mid-term and final examinations and have come through with colors flying: and
Whereas, these same proud Sophomores are a very important part of—nay.
1 would say an indispensable cog in the High School machinery—and these same celestial beings not only know that they are important, but know that they know that they are important, and furthermore will let the world know that they are important;
Therefore, be it resolved, that the entire student body of the Albany High School give a rising vote of thanks to the many times above mentioned Sophomore class of 1927, for their intelligence, for their importance, and finally even for their very existence. And
Whereas, the same oft-mentioned wiseacres have among their midst the following celebrities, with reference to their achievements for the High School, to wit:
Firstly. Their illustrious majesties. Lady Belle Wilfong and Lady Mildred Simon, who shine in the spacious firmament of basketball:
Secondly. Their Most Honorable Highnesses. Sir John Ferguson. Sir Harold Glass, and Sir Robert Nix. who likewise have fought valiant battles on the athletic fields: and
Thirdly, Many brilliant and illustrious students, the printing of the list of which would require several pages, and hence of necessity must be omitted, much to the regret of the ‘'resoluters;"
Therefore, be it resolved, that the students of the Albany High School, and the citizens of Albany, of the State of Georgia, and of the United States of America, hereby elect the members of the Sophomore class of 1927 to the Hall of Fame!
Be it further resolved, that a copy of these resolutions be sent to Principal J. O. Allen. Superintendent R. E. Brooks. Mayor E. H. Kalmon, Hon. Clifford M. Walker. Governor of the State of Georgia, and Hon. Calvin Coolidge, President of the United States of America, that a record of the Sophomore Class of 1927 be preserved through the ages in the archives of the country.....

Al Qouncil of Wa r
Time: September 14, 1926. Place: Albany High School.
His Honor, the King of the Realm of Freshmandom. commands his subjects from all his provinces. Broad. Flint, McIntosh and Monroe, to assemble on the Mavonian field outside the walls of Albany High School, fourteen days hence, September 14. 1926.
Herald: "Your highness, the subjects of all your provinces await your commands.’’
King: “Announce my presence. I come.”
Herald (blows trumpet) : “His majesty, the King of Freshmandom. approaches.”
Subjects: "All hail. O gracious king.”
King: "Silence! Studies. Books. Sophomores. Juniors, and Seniors have declared war against
us. We arc a nation untried by the buffets of strife. What have you in the manner of weapons? The enemy must not be destroyed but overcome and made to aid us, their conquerors.”
First Subject: "Yes. your highness, we have considered and have concluded that to win a fight
we must be well prepared with sufficient arms."
King: "Tush, my knave, you speak to the winds, why tell me that when you have no arms.
How will you win the fight?”
Second Subject: "We beg leave of you. O King, to present our means of vanquishing the
King: "What means have you. speak! Do not forget that you have Latin. English. Algebra.
Science, and numerous other formidable foes. Speak. I say.”
Third Subject: "We. the most of us. have armed ourselves with a good grammar school record, a sound, industrious mind, a growing character and last but not least that trusty sword—ambition to win.”
King: "My subjects, we shall be victorious, if all of you will fight with your utmost energy
and ready zeal.
Fourth Subject (in unison) : "We hear, and we shall obey.”
Time: Three months later. Place: Albany High School grounds.
Subjects are resting after a fierce engagement in the marshes of test week.
First Subject: "The counter engagements have been fierce. Latin has wounded at least one-third
of our corps and they have had to be treated in the Scientific lab ."
Second Subject: "Yes. I received quite a few pricks from Algebra, myself, and there are many
in my same plight."
Third Subject: "The English has diminished our ranks considerably, but still we arc hold

Herald: "Hark, listen one. listen all. His Royal Highness, the King of Freshmandom. requests

King: "Hear ye of the arrival of ambassadors who call themselves teachers? They propose a
truce. Shall you accept? The Books have confessed that they had rather save some of their energy to battle the future hordes of Freshmen.

First Subject: "What remuneration will these countries make to us?”
Second Subject: "What of our wounded and dead?”
King: "Only a small number arc lost and the wounded, with proper care, will soon be as

Tribute to zT Cr. -ThCitchell
When it was learned that Mr. Orion Mitchell, better known as “Fess,” was leaving the Albany High School, many were the hearts that were saddened. But on second thought all selfish motives were cast aside and every one joined in wishing him the success that he so richly deserves.
Three years ago. unknown, unheralded, and unsung, he came into our midst, and right then and there began setting a worthy example of a man of high ideals. By his leadership on the athletic field and in the class room, he has shown what a real man can do. He has instilled into us the spirit of clean athletics, of fair play, and of the never-say-die determination.
As a coach, his ability can not be praised too highly, but as a man— well, it is not possible to say enough. In fact, the success of the Albany High School teams has been largely due to the love and respect that the players have had for him. which would make them fight and fight to the end, merely because they would do anything to see him pleased.
Wherever he is. he may be seen surrounded by a group of students. His word is like a law unto the boys—and why? The answer is known to all—the example he sets in his ordinary walks of life. His success has been measured not only in a material way but in those intangible ties of friendship and love that he has left with us.
It was therefore quite natural that we would wish to present him a small token of our appreciation. Therefore a sterling silver loving cup was selected; sterling because that typifies the qualities of Mr. Mitchell, silver because of its durability, and a loving cup was chosen because that shows the esteem in which we hold him. We know that he will always hold a place in his heart for us, but we feel that this cup can never show the real spirit of love in which it was given.Thronqtccska
T HE THRONATEESKA presents for your approval the following twenty pages of Student Activities. The Student Council, organized this year with Stephen Hofmayer as president, has made itself felt in our midst; and for this reason we have inserted this almost life-size picture here. Fooled you that time, didn't we?—you thought it was because he was "Editor.”
1 he Hi-Y. a long established club, has maintained its high standard and all the good little boys, together with some not so good, belong to this group.
Ah! and here's the Bow-Wow—pardon us—the Pow-Wow, a sacred conclave (that's the staff meeting) or a noisy assembly (that's the rest of us that just help). Another slip of the pen like the one above and we're sunk. Gaston!
And then—er—hem. this is the Annual— sho' nuff. it is. Look a little farther over and you’ll find a "speaking" likeness of Miss Love, who is responsible for all of this and the Wow-Wow besides. Someone accused her of sitting back and "reposing her mind." Yes, it was a Senior. But eee-magine. my dear. Miss Billie Love "reposing" her mind or anyone else's either, for that matter.
Clubs! clubs! dubs!—Indian clubs, pink tea clubs, and just plain clubs, and the "King of Clubs" is Mr. Allen, to whom they are all due. But bigger and finer than this is his influence that has brought us all closer together: and it is for this that we will always remember him.
Now. of course, we don't expect you to like all that we've said, any more than we expect you to approve of these pages—even if we did say so in the beginning, that was just to "make talk,” one really has to start some way.
Ye scrivener waxes weary—it is in the wee small hours just before dawn—approximately three o'clock in the morning and the clock has run down—yea. verily, has come to a stop. Shall we not follow the example of the clock?whose efforts to create a closer contact between teacher and pupil are recognized and appreciated by the student body.

To create and maintain clean scholarship, clean speech, clean sports, and clean living.
The motto explains the reason for having such an organization as the Hi-Y. This upper class club has been a main factor in the high school for six or seven years, and during that period many good and useful things have been accomplished. Y. M. C. A. canvasses, better speech campaigns, go-to-church drives, and clean athletics have all been within the scope of its endeavor.
This year, alone, members of the Hi-Y helped during the football season by keeping the crowd back of the ropes. In April a go-to-church campaign was put on by the club and the result was most gratifying.
From these few words, one can quickly understand the high moral standards of the Hi-Y, and it is hoped that in the future the law of clean living will be placed on an even higher plane. May the 1927-28 organization be more delightful and beneficial.

HARVARD HILL. Tackle
Captain Hill, chosen as an All-Association tackle, was the greatest leader an Albany High School football team ever had. Always a hard fighter, his combined strength and experience made him a terror to all opposing teams. He was a spotted man in every game, but his amazing tenacity kept him in the whole of every period.
JOSEPH WHIRE. Guard
Although playing his first year on the varsity. ‘ Jodie” gained the monicker of the best guard in South Georgia. His specialty was offense, which is a rare quality in high school football players. “Jodie” was chosen on the All-Association team at the close of the season.
SAM BROWN. Quarterback
As a quarterback. Sam has never been surpassed in the history of Albany High School football. He was not only the brains of the team, but also one of the best broken-field runners among Georgia High Schools. We expect to hear some big things from Sam in college athletics.
BILLY PICKRON. Halfback
Billy made the varsity after a hard scrap, but once succeeding, he remained secure. With three more years in which to “strut his stuff.” Billy is expected to shine in South Georgia football.
JOHN VENTULETT. Guard
A hard worker on both offense and defense, John played left guard to perfection. Being probably the fastest man on the team, he could go down under punts with the celerity of an end. at which position he was played in a few games.
NEIL CRAWFORD. End
Though a newcomer to the ranks of high school athletics, this slender stripling proved to be a cracker-jack end. Especially good on defense. he stopped men. when no one else could. Neil will be back next year, and great things are expected of him.
Page Ninety 3-------------- Throng crska---------- —
ROY GUNNELS. Fullback
"Eat 'em up. Wildcat!" Roy has shown that he is the steady, dependable player that is a joy to any coach. On defense, his tackling was ferocious. Roy will display his wares on the gridiron again next year.
STEPHEN HOFMAYER. End
"Steve." though small in stature, proved to be a hard obstacle for all teams to encounter. He specialized on both offense and defense, but the biggest factors in his success as an end were his grit and determination.
HARRY MALONE. Tackle
Harry was a faithful and reliable worker. Starting from the bottom, he made such remarkable progress, that he won his place over several men of experience. Harry is a brainy individual and could always be counted on to do his part.
ALBERT USBORNE. Center
Another All-Association man! "Uz." though weighing only 140 pounds, was considered by some the best High School center in the State. After fighting his way through a successful season. he has been elected captain of next year’s team.
JACK ROBERTS. Halfback
A combined plunger and broken field runner: a terror on offense: a demon on defense—such was Jack. Picked by many as one of the greatest backs in the Conference, he was a shining light in every game. Jack is Alternate Captain of next year’s team.
HUGH DIVINE. Tackle
As a utility linesman. Hugh was a fine man to have in reserve.
ELDRIDGE DUNCAN. Tackle
This season "Dune" played the role of an excellent relief man.
When Coach Mitchell sounded the first call for practice in September, much embryo material, but not enough veteran possibilities, was on hand. Nevertheless, with the aid of Tom 'Hatless’’ Nelson, a former University of Georgia star, he placed on the field in the first game of the season, a team which gave prospects of becoming a championship outfit.
ALBANY 26—DAWSON 0
The opening game was featured by sweeping end runs, off-tackle plays, and good blocking. Albany scored once in the first half, then came back in the latter frame to amass three more counters. No goals were kicked after touchdowns.
ALBANY 18—OCILLA 14
Fighting against a team already in mid-season form and led by a great back. Dickens, the Indians played a magnificent game, taking advantage of every break. Captain Hill scored first upon snatching a fumble out of the air and chasing across the goal line. Much free scoring was done by both teams, but Albany came out victorious.
ALBANY 21—CAIRO 0
Playing a beautiful game of football in the first fifteen minutes of play, the Indians ran up twenty-one points. After this the Braves played indifferently, with no pep and no enthusiasm. The game ended as it did at the half.
ALBANY 7—VALDOSTA 0
Before a large crowd. Albany upset the dope bucket and amazed everyone, most of all the Wildcats, with a strange assortment of end runs, off-tackle plays, line bucks, punt-formation
plays, and passes. This varied attack, coupled with the impregnable defense of the Braves,
resulted in a touchdown, which proved to be the margin of victory.
ALBANY 48—ASHBURN 0
Ashburn. the next foe of the season, brought a team to the “World's Pecan Center'’ reputed to give the Braves a hard scrap. Again the dope was upset and with the second team
playing half of the game. Albany ran up a large score.
ALBANY 32—MOULTRIE 0
The Moultrie eleven faced a team already inflamed on account of reports that over-confidence had crept into their ranks. The Packers felt the brunt of this wrath and were borne steadily backward before a team that presented magnificent interference and backs who could carry the ball. A big score was piled up by the Indians, and the game ended with the Albany eleven again victorious.
ALBANY 33—THOMASVII.LE 0
I he next foe of the Braves was the Thomasvillc team, always strong and always to be feared. A large host of rabid fans accompanied the eleven down to the “City of Roses’’ and was rewarded by seeing the team sweep the Bulldogs out of the running for the championship. Again wonderful interference featured the game for the Braves.
ALBANY 34—TIFTON 7
Again playing away from home, the Albany team, already headed for the championship, showed a reversal of form in the first half of the game with the Blue Devils. The hitherto impregnable defense was holding like so much paper, and the large Tifton team was making long gains, which resulted in a touchdown. The half ended with Albany leading 13-7. A new team appeared on the field at the beginning of the last frame and proceeded to crush all opposition. Terrific line bucks and passes constituted the margin of victory.
ALBANY 54—BAINBRIDGE 0
The Indians, playing straight football, ran rough shod over the Bainbridge team in their annual game. This contest won for Albany for the first time in its history, the championship of Southwest Georgia.
Albany 6—Lagrange n
In the Turkey Day clash the LaGrangc “Veterans.'' champions of North Georgia, and Albany played for the championship of the State. Starting the game with a rush, the Braves, by a series of line plays and a pass, quickly scored. But the “Veterans." in successfully stopping the off-tackle plays of the Albany team, played a master stroke, since this was the main offensive threat of the Indians. Forced to resort to line-bucks and passes, the Champions of Southwest Georgia fought until every man was ready to drop in his tracks. They immortalized themselves in the eyes of the entire section by their gallant work. Thus ended the greatest season an Albany High School team has ever experienced.Above: Indians swamp Moultrie 32-0.
Below: Tifton threatens but loses 34-7
Coming directly after a championship football season, the basketball team was a little overshadowed and seemed somewhat unsuccessful because the record was not as clean as that of the team preceding it. But. let it be known, that the Indians established a very enviable record, losing only to one association team. Although defeated three times by "Peach Belt" teams, the Braves accomplished a great feat in holding the Vienna State Champions to a 30-5 score. On the home court the crack Montezuma quint was trailing, up to the last minute of play, only to forge ahead at the final whistle. The Aztecs again took the Braves into camp by a slightly larger score on their own stamping grounds. The Indians performed creditably in the Association tournament, but were eliminated in the semi-finals by the championship Ashburn five.
Sincere appreciation is due Coach "Skipper" Smith, who gladly gave his time and skill in molding from an inexperienced group of boys, one of the fastest and strongest high school aggregations in South Georgia.
Following are the scores: A. H. S. 20. Sale City 12; A. H. S. 28. Sylvester 5;
A. H. S. 34. Shcllman 5: A. H. S. 33. Moultrie 9: A. H. S. 18. Camilla 13; A. H. S. 17, Sylvester 9: A. H. S. 37. Valdosta 19: A. H. S. 16. Montezuma 20; A. H. S. 10. Thomas-ville 13; A. H. S. 5.

Alls Well That Ends Well'' is what could be said of this year’s basketball team. All season it seemed that the girls could not decide which to do—win or lose, so to prevent hard feeling they won half the games and lost half. But when the tournament came, they made up their minds and won three straight games, losing out only in the semi-finals.
Here our faithful captain. Virginia Grcmmcr. showed what she was made of. as she played jumping center in a style that won the admiration of all.
Catherine Brazil was back at center this year with Sara Hall and Edith Simon, manager, flipping the coin to see who would help her out.
Speaking of fighters, you have never seen any until you have gazed on Nell Hudson and Belle Wilfong in action. By the way. Nell made All-Association and we are certainly proud of her!
The two girls that kept the scorers busy were Mary Lou Lunsford and Louise Binion. These two forwards worked fine together and were both good shots.
Last but not least are the subs: Kathleen Robinson. Mildred Simon. Ruth Dees, and
Prances Pussell. They were certainly faithful and stuck it out to the end.
Now for the one who bore the brunt of it all—Miss Lucy Mac Bragg, who went by the title of coach, but was more than a mere instructor—she was the special friend of every girl on the team. Whether the Squaws won or lost, this good sport kept up their spirits and made them want to do better all the time. 3
Tor the first time in many years has a second team worthy of mention been produced.— and this team, ladies and gentlemen, is the far-famed Papooses. Although regular practice started late in the season. Coach Mitchell quickly rounded his charges into a formidable outfit. The Papooses were composed largely of under classmen who did not quite have the experience necessary for the varsity squad, but who. on account of their training this year, will in all probability, make the first team next season. In fact, so good were the Junior Indians even this year, that several of them were drafted into the Indian squad on the eve of the tournament.
At center was Robert Nix. high point man for his team. Julian Gortatowsky and Herbert Woodson cavorted at guards, and Mason Reid and John Ferguson played the forward positions.
The squad played many representative second teams and even some first teams from near-by towns. Following is the record, unblemished by any defeat: Papooses 16. Baconton 12:
Papooses 22. Ty Ty 11; Papooses 10. Tifton 8: Papooses 13. Sumner 11; Papooses 22. Sylvester 9; Papooses 15. Meigs 14: Papooses 14. Sumner 13: Papooses 16. Tifton 11.
Page Xincty-screnThron tccsk
Starting the season with only a nucleus of three regulars left from last year’s squad. Coach Mitchell has developed a fairly good baseball team.
At the first practice call some forty odd candidates put in their appearance at the High School park.
A slow “weeding” process began immediately and those who were eligible for the varsity and scrub teams were retained. Interesting to note are the great number of Freshmen and Sophomores who have shown much zeal in trying out for the team.
A hard schedule has been worked out under the capable supervision of Manager Harvard Hill and games with teams, holding the reputation of being the best in Southern High School circles, have been arranged.
Following is the schedule to dale: Bronwood. Americus—(2). Leesburg. Blakely.
Valdosta—(4). Thomasville—(2), Ocilla—(2), Tifton A. ft M.— (2), Bainbridge—(2).
Pitchers: DIVINE. FERGUSON. EDWARDS. PATTERSON.
Catchers: GLASS. DUNCAN.
Infielders: BROWN (Capt.). HILL. HOLT. GRIFFIN. NlX. GREENE, BABBITT. GORTATOWSKY.
Outfielders: WlURE. REID. SHACKELFORD.
Page Ninety-eightThron tccska
More than usual interest has been shown in track this season. The candidates arc working hard, and prospects of a fast team arc seen. Jumping and vaulting standards have been erected back of the school by the Athletic Association, and the young hopefuls arc practicing daily at recess. With the passing of each day. the cross-bars mount higher and higher. It is hoped that the maximum height will be reached at Tifton. where the District Meet will be held this year to determine the leader among the Association teams on the cinder track.
Practices for the dashes and relays are held at the High School park, where the boys may be seen every afternoon limbering up and improving their wind.
Coach Mills is planning this year to lengthen and in a way to enlarge the track season. Instead of having all activities centered about the District Meet, he is contemplating other miniature meets with near-by towns to determine the relative strength of his team. Negotiations arc already under way with Dawson and Sylvester.
Following is a list of prospective candidates who have shown up well in practice. The squad will probably be selected from this aggregation: Track—John Ventulett. Harvard Hill.
Jack Roberts. David Ventulett: Hurdles—Harvard Hill: High Jump—Stafford Williams: Broad Jump Harvard Hill. Sam Brown: Pole Vault—Billie Bruce Jones. Clayton Owens: Shot Put Joe Hill. Roy Gunnels: Discus—Fred Sumter. Jack Roberts.

With Apologies to H. W. L.
Should you ask me. whence these pictures? Whence these relics and traditions.
With the odors of the forest.
With the dew and damp of meadows. With the curling smoke of wigwams, With the rushing of great rivers.
With their frequent repetition.
And their wild reverberations.
As of thunder in the mountains?
I should answer. 1 should tell you,
"From the forest and the prairies,
From the land of the Muscogee.
Where flows the Muckafoonee,
And Skywuter. deep and blue.
Runs into the Thronateeska.
Where the Indian lit his campfire On the cliff, above the river.
I will show them as I found them On the breast of Mother Nature."

“Is the Stale’s most beautiful gift to its daughters”
“Character first” has always been its motto and its programme.
Situated at Valdosta, the State’s “vale of beauty,” it enjoys an almost perfect climate and equally perfect health conditions. Its buildings and equipment are most thoroughly modern.
There is never a day when flowers are not blooming on its campus. There has never been a serious case of illness in the school.
The business of the College is to train the young women of the State for leadership: Its ideal is the best type of Christian womanhood.
The College offers courses leading to the A. B. degree in education, in literature, language, science, music, and other fields of interest to women. It offers also courses leading to the Normal diploma and the Junior College diploma.
