Page Twenty-five gina f fs- : , DUR 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." -Millard Lenz. DAWN 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. -Mildred Swatzell. L y VD LEAVES IN AUTUMN Summer ends, 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, They crumble. 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 -Kathleen Brazelton. Page Twenty-six 3 CUR RY 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 Junior News." 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 Class Historian. SAILING 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!

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.

SENIOR I 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.

From the rank and file of this club are selected the characters for the coveted roles in our Senior Class play. After weeks of unseen preparation the Masks and Wigs step forth each year proudly to present a production well worth all the praise that could fill a page several times the size of this one.

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. OFFICERS President . .

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?

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!" OFFICERS President . .

Page Fifty-four 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. OFFICERS Grand Master . . . WILLIAM REED Assistant Grand Master .

This Club emphasizes not only physical strength but strength of ideals and purposes, fair play, and good sports- manship.

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.

"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. Qur RED ENDS 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. ELDRIDGE COCKRELL A fast-charging end, always alert and ready to "stop that man." SIDNEY EVANS "Sid', showed coach he could not only warm the bench, but also play a scrappy game of football TACKLES MACK JACOBS Mack, a strong and stalwart Raider, opened many holes for his husky backs. JACKSON HODGES "Pee Weei' Hodges held his side of the line in an iron grip and won many honors. WALTER KEMMITZER !'Little Gumpu is a sturdy tackle who never gave an inch without a struggle. ELBERT MCMEANS "Little Mac", though he did not play regularly, was a great asset to the squad. GUARDS DONALD WHITMIRE, Co-Captain-Elect l "Lard', was the key man of the team, playing guard, l tackle, and fullbaclcg a coachis dream. l l 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 his best. BILLY WILLIAMS Bill was of much value this year, but will probably be much better next year. RAIDER CARL GREEN, Co-Captain-Elect "Shug,s', ability to center the pigslcin won him much glory. PAUL SHAFER "Rod's,' specialty was hard tackling and backing up the line like a Bengal tiger. BACKS HENRY FORD BRAZELTON Henry was one of the best blocking backs we had and proved his judgment as a field general. EARL ALVERSON "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 SMITH Clyde was a worthy player and will be better in the future, we predict. PETE DRAKE 'llsive-Yard Drake" earned his name by lugging the leather in twirling manner. PETE HENDERSON Pete,s Ueducatedv toe kicked us out of many tight spots. He was also a good runner. HAROLD SELF Harold, who has already come into the limelight, is a hard-blocking back and will be of great value K0 US next Year. WALTER TODD "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 future. 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 consecutive games. 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 and shoots. Mack Jacobs-Mack has won quite a reputation by his wind-up before he malces that goal. Page Sixty-four GIRL "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?

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.
