Through the years we'll oft remember
Days we've spent with thee.
Always faithful, always loyal
To our ensign holclg
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater

Soon our ways will part.

Graven on each heart.

Tune: "That Tumble-Down Shack In Aflzlonev
fSure Old Ireland Is Calling To Mel
There is spring in the air and the world seems so tai
Yet my heart is as sad as can be,
For no more I'll abide here in Old Riverside
On the banks of the Old Tennessee.
Ch! I'm leaving behind this old spot so divine,
For I,ve finished my high school career.
I am saying, "Adieu,', to old friends tried and true
And my teachers and chums I hold dear.
Now there come to my memory things dear to me,
I can scarce keep a tear from my eye.
All those things dear to me I am leaving, you see
And you DEAR DECATUR HI.
CHARLES H. MURPHY.
THE CALL OF MOTHER NATURE
Working in her quiet, mysterious way,
Mother nature comes each day
To change in color, pattern, and every way,
The designs she gave us yesterday.
Leaves of green she has made
A slightly darker ot lighter shade.
Poppies may have a slightly brighter hue
Which is not visible to me or you.
As I wander through the fields in fall,
I often wish that she would call:
"Come hither, my son, come here to me,
And I will tell it all to thee.
"How I make the changes each day,
How I Came in a mysterious way
To make poppies have a brighter hue,
Whence comes the wind, the use of dew.'
But although I have listened every fall,
I have never, never heard her call,
"Come hither, my son, come here to me,
And I will tell it all to thee.',
Often on a cool autumn morn
Many sounds are on the clear air borne.
I listen closely and-harkl
No, it's the call of a meadow lark.
As I continue my search each clay,
I always hope I'll hear her say,
"Come hither, my son, come here to me,
And I will tell it all to thee."
Have you ever seen the dawn
As it creeps across the sky,
I-Iow the colors flash and mingle
As the darkness scatters wide?
just so an act of kindness,
In this world of strife and sin,
Seems to cheer the broken-hearted
And to lighten the cares of men.
LEAVES IN AUTUMN
The time for reaping has come.
Cold winds sweep around every corner
Chilling each leaf on every tree.
They tremble, quiver, then collapse.
Their beautiful color seems to disappear,
Instead, dull, darkened ones creep out
And gently take their abode
On the fast-dying leaves
That were once the pride of the tree.
The dry air makes them crisp,
Falling from the tree, a gust of wind
Hurling by, lifts them into the air
To be carried to the far beyond.
Thus the tree is left standing bare
To endure the hardships of winter.
-Dorothy Rose Swatzell.
MY MOTHERS HANDS
They're growing old, yes, day by clay,
But they still work the same sweet way,
Doing things for me and all the rest,
Because she knows that it is best.
Her hands have held me since I was born,
They made the first clothes I've ever worn.
They have petted and spanked me through years
But I've always loved them even through tears.
They show years of work and toil for me,
Years that can never, never again be,
Years of hard work and roads of strife,
So that I, her child, might have life.
Each finger is thinner than in days past.
My! but her time is passing so fast,
Yet each line on that sweet rough hand,
Will be smooth as silk in that Better Land.
And yet when I meet her far up above,
She'll greet me with a hand like a silkened glove
But I know that through it all Iill see
That they were once rough and red, because of me
Students of history can easily remember the ninth day of September in the year nine-
teen hundred twenty-eight, for that day marked the beginning of a voyage that is second
only in importance to the sailing in fourteen hundred ninety-two.
Up the gang plank clambered one hundred fifty undergraduates of the present Senior
Class, all eagerly anticipating their first voyage on the S. S. Education. We were, as one
could see at a glance, "new in the businessv and needed some one to guide us away from
the harbor. Our understanding grammar school teachers came to our assistance and
gave us a gentle, but persistent push. As we have sailed further on our voyage, we have
realized that we are truly obligated to those who, with such tolerance and patience, taught
us the principles that formed a firm foundation for our later years.
After six short years of peaceful sailing in calm waters, we thrust out into the more
adventurous regions of Junior High School. Here we encountered two entirely new terms
"rat" and "cooperation." When we sailed into this institution, the former term served
well to subdue those who were proud of their recent promotion. Cooperation, we found,
was an act of paying two cents each Friday for the support of a weekly newspaper, "The
Then one day our beloved Professor Givens presented us with diplomas-our certificate
of entrance to Decatur Senior High School.
The most startling and amazing feature of this new "home" was the way chapel
exercises were conducted. "Doc', always employed such "big words" in making announce-
ments that we were ever in a state of confusion. Quite often some Senior would run
down the aisle to make a breath-taking announcement about a colossal Hollywood produc-
tion to be given in chapel the following day.
Miss Brandau was elected sponsor of our Sophomore class and ably guided us through
our first year.
The Junior Class chose Mr. Kimbrough to lead our junior activities. Included among
them were a highly successful magazine campaign, the sale of coupon books, and our pro-
duction of 'QMary's Little Lamb."
With Miss Pope as captain of our final year at Riverside, we have successfully spon-
sored a profitable sale of magazines, two Shakespearean plays, and the all-important Senior
Class Play. Miss Odom piloted us into port.
The Seven Seas of Opportunity are open to those who would sail further on the S. S.
Education. May it be determined by the class of thirty-nine that, as we continue our
voyage, we shall pursue with undaunted courage those things that lead to a victorious life.
EDITH MAY SCHIMMEL
There is no thrill so great as sailing
'Tis lots of fun-includin' bailing . . .
It gives you a feeling both joyous and keen
When you "pull 'er in close" and she starts to lean,
The feel of the spray as it beats on your brow
From the waves that are cut by the sleeken'd black prow-
Seems to wash away cares, futile and vain-
And gives us new strength to fight life again!

Loolc about and what do you see? Why, the junior Class, busy as usual. The Juniors
are active in every fielcl open to them, whether it be an individual project or merely in the
form of cooperating with other classes or clubs. The candid cameraman could find many
interesting subjects for photography among them for they are always busily working on
committees, in clubs, selling magazines, putting on a play, or participating actively in sports.
The climax of all their activities is the Junior-Senior Banquet. The Juniors and Seniors
alike eagerly await this occasion.

The Sophomores came to Riverside in September, 1938, somewhat bewildered fthough
not for longj by all that they surveyed. Soon they became acclimated to the ways of the
Juniors and the Seniors. They have proven, in every phase of their work, that they are
not only capable, but willing to cooperate with the rest of the student body. If there was
in the minds of the Sophomores at the beginning of the year the ambition to make their
class known as one of the outstanding Sophomore classes, then truly they have achieved
their ambition, for Riverside is proud of them.

Dear Omega Sigma,
As one approaches the end of his senior year, he recalls many experiences.
Standing out vividly among them is the night that I became a member of Omega
Sigma. Although I lcnew that one must maintain a B average to remain among the
honored few, in the ignorance of my freshman year I labored under the mistaken im-
pression that Omega Sigma social evenings were spent pondering Einsteinls theory!
As I leave Riverside, I begin to realize the pleasure and happiness I derived from
being with you.

History books, fiction books, reference books-bound together by mutual interest
this group have worked toward the goal of deeper appreciation for the finer literary works.
Then, of course, there are other students in school interested in the library and its
books. The members aid them in their selection of books, as well as acting as guides in
the library. In every respect, they seem to believe as Sir John Herschel did: "Give a man

The title, "Hobby Club," immediately arouses one's interest. "But,,' you say, "how
can they discuss all the hobbies? Here I rudely interrupt to cell you just what this
club is and the things for which it stands.
Each member is given an opportunity to talk on his hobby. If a member hasn't a
hobby? Then interesting speakers from clubs outside the school are asked to address and
aicl them in their search by instructive talks on individual hobbies.

The Questers Club, taking for its motto, "To seek, to find," aims to develop in the
minds of its members a lceener interest in, and better understanding of, the mysterious
realms of science. The programs are planned to encourage active participation of members
in experiments and demonstrations. Have fun? I should say they do! Who among
them hasn't an explorative mind and doesn't thrill to the unfolding of a new formula right
before his eyes? '
May it be said of the Questers, "They are seeking-and they shall findll'

THE GALOIS GROUP
Two and two make four and that's not all-a worthy aim plus a good membership
equals a good club. As you know by now, this is none other than the Math Club. Not
only do they delve into the mysteries of mathematics-its background as well as its solution
--they are active! They could appropriately be nick-named the "go-gettersf' as their
ability was exemplified in the amateur hour so successfully presented in our auditorium.
If, in future years, you chance to hear an explanation of the fourth dimension, you'll smile
wisely and say, "The Math Club is at work again!"

LAMBDA PI SIGMA FRATERNITY
'QI will prove to you Without a shadow of a doubtf,-immediately there comes to our
minds the debating club that has made a name for itself, Lambda Pi Sigma. Their inter-
club debates have attracted wide spread attention throughout the school system. Such a
desire of young people to debate earnestly a question denotes progress and the Fraternity
stimulates this interest by discussing with other clubs timely, important topics.
In a lighter vein, the club has sponsored many and varied social activities for the
entertainment of its members.

The members participate and express interest in all types of sports. This Club emphasizes
not only physical strength but strength of ideals and purposes, fair play, and good sports-
manship. Our athletic boys and girls are better fitted to participate in all school activities
when sports are part of the school program.

A boy who wears a "D" is a very fortunate person-Not only does he possess the
letter, but he has been rewarded, not for fatiguing labor, but for his interest and devotion
to a field in which he has proven himself vitally interested-athletics. This coveted letter
is not easily obtained, but through constant and faithful practice he may win one in either
the field of football or basketball.
Riverside is proud of the wearers of the "Dv, May they each remember that the
sense of sportsmanship they have gained is applicable to every phase of life.

"Last down and one to go"-Coaches "Shorty'7 Ogle and Aubrey Fuller trained these
hrawny boys into a team that started off the season with a NBANGW. Their hard driving
was checked when they hit a stone wall-the freshmen of Birmingham-Southern. Led hy
Captains i'Dead Eyei' Meadows and "Demon7, Scarborough, these lads showed plenty of
spunk, even in the face of defeat.
Those loud-mouthed cheer leaders. A. li. Harvey, Wessie Pilchr-r, and
Charles Murphy, kept up the spirit of the team with their capable
direction of enthusiastic yells.
Tucker and Johnson, nurse
maids to the boys, were al-
ways ready with the medi-
cal kit and water bucket.
HOMER MEADOWS, Co-Captain
Showed his ability as captain by urging the other
boys on to victory. He will be missed next year,
for his dauntless spirit is essential to any game.
A fast-charging end, always alert and ready to
"stop that man."
"Sid', showed coach he could not only warm the
bench, but also play a scrappy game of football
Mack, a strong and stalwart Raider, opened many
holes for his husky backs.
"Pee Weei' Hodges held his side of the line in an
iron grip and won many honors.
!'Little Gumpu is a sturdy tackle who never gave
an inch without a struggle.
"Little Mac", though he did not play regularly, was
a great asset to the squad.
DONALD WHITMIRE, Co-Captain-Elect l
"Lard', was the key man of the team, playing guard, l
tackle, and fullbaclcg a coachis dream. l
MARVIN WORLEY, Co-Captain-Elect 1
Marvin, a fleet guard, who blocked hard, was a '
wedge in the line. l
T. B. ROGERS, JR. l
'tDutchH was a swift little man, always ready to do l
Bill was of much value this year, but will probably
be much better next year.
CARL GREEN, Co-Captain-Elect
"Shug,s', ability to center the pigslcin won him
"Rod's,' specialty was hard tackling and backing up
the line like a Bengal tiger.
HENRY FORD BRAZELTON
Henry was one of the best blocking backs we had
and proved his judgment as a field general.
"Lefty" was a shifty, hard-driving back who came
to us from Tennessee and who proved to be of
great value to us.
FRED SCARBOROUGH, Co-Captain
I-le was one of the hardest lighting backs that led
the Red Raiders in battle.
Clyde was a worthy player and will be better in the
future, we predict.
'llsive-Yard Drake" earned his name by lugging
the leather in twirling manner.
Pete,s Ueducatedv toe kicked us out of many tight
spots. He was also a good runner.
Harold, who has already come into the limelight,
is a hard-blocking back and will be of great value
K0 US next Year.
"Sonny,' has hands that seem to draw the ball to
him. I-las he ever missed a pass? We wonder.
Left to right: Vaughn Francis, Jimmie Roberson, Leonard Stark, Walter Kc-mmitzer, Clyde Teague,
Harold Self, Earl Alverson
Nshoot that goallv-these baslceteers, coached by "Shorty,' Ogle, have come through with
flying colors. They got off to a slow start, but with the addition of Brazelton and Coclcrell
to che quintet, dribbled on to a fine record. Captain Coclcrell showed his ability to lead the
boys in every game.
Vaughn Francis-"Venn is a shifty, little forward that will shine next year, even
brighter than this year.
Jimmie Robertson-Jimmie came to us from Trinity and shot his way into a berth
on the team.
Leonard Stark-"Len,' is one of our swiftest guards, and really covers the court.
Walter Kemmitzer-Q'Little Gump", our center, has been with us for three years, he
has alwa s la ed a clean ame.
Y P Y g
Clyde Teague-"Teague" is a new-comer but will prove a very valuable man in the
Harold Self-We wonder where Self learned to dribble. He not only fooled us, but
also, the other teams.
Earl Alverson-"Lefty" is our spot man, and a good falcer. He was high scorer for five
Henry Ford Brazelton-Henry is a guard that not only covers the floor, but also
fakes, shoots, and dribbles.
Eldridge Coclcrell, our captain. You wouldn't think he is a guard, the way he breaks
Mack Jacobs-Mack has won quite a reputation by his wind-up before he malces that
"Pass that ball!"-Coach Aubrey Fuller trained these lasses and produced the most suc-
cessful team we have ever had. They lost only one game during the entire seasong this was
to Austinville, in the Hnals of the County Tournament. Evelyn Childs and Ada Ruth
French had no trouble in winning a place on the All-County team.
Theda Miller-We have seen Theda as forward and guard in the past two yearsg we
regret she has to leave us.
Evelyn Childs-All records were broken when Evelyn scored 48 points in one game of
the tournament. She was chosen All-County forward.
Elizabeth Mooney-"Trixie', is a good little center who came to us from Moulton
Heights. Watch her next year.
Ada Ruth French-"Snoolcie', is our Captain and she led our team through an unde-
feated season. She won All-County honors.
Pam Littrell--Pam is one of the best guards we have seen in several years. We believe
she will win many honors next year.
Zana Dean Bradley-We wonder why Zana Dean doesn't frame that pass combination
to Childs which won so many games?

"Iris a hit!"-and the team started what proved to be a successful year. Under the
sponsorship of Mr. Reed, the lads of this sturdy and dependable hall club scrapped hard and
played to win. Ed Johnson, "Sonny', Todd, and "Venn Yarhorough could always malce a
hit and save the game. Each player was always alert for the signal from Manager Brazel-
ton. The season was completed with thirteen victories and only four losses.
