They won over Lees-McRae, Western Carolina Teachers, Tusculum, Appalachian Teachers,, and their tradi¬ tional rivals Milligan. The team dropped games to Carson-Newman, Cumberland; and Maryville. The team reported for practice on September 16. Returning lettermen included Co-cap- tains Taylor and Wayman, Anderson; Congdon; Boyer; LucaS; Bowman; Sabin; Shields, Burle¬ son, Jamison, and Graves. There was also a large group of capable reserves from the 1934 squad and a fair amount of freshman material. On October 12 the Buccaneers opened the season at home by beating Lees-McRae 19 to 0. The game featured long touchdown sprints by Anderson and Boyer and brilliant line play by Congdon, Parsley, and Jones, In the second contest of the year the Bucs struck a snag in the Carson-Newman Eagles. The Bucs, handicapped by having played only one game before meeting the strong Eagles, were unable to get going. They showed defensive strength by holding the Eagles scoreless in the second half. The game ended 12 to 0. In the third game the Bucs defeated the Western Carolina Teachers, 13 to 0. In the first quarter, Bowman, former lineman drafted into the backfield, broke away for a 50-yard touch¬ down dash. Lucas scored for the Teachers again early in the second quarter after a sustained drive from midfield. In the first half the Bucs showed determined blocking and tackling. On Home-coming day, October 26, the Teachers decisively defeated the Tusculum Pioneers 19 to 6. All three of the Bucs 5 touchdowns came in the first half. Boyer accounted for two tallies, one coming as a result of an eighty-yard return of a punt with beautiful blocking by Peters. Lloyd Thornton scored the third marker on a quarterback sneak. Sabin, Clark, and Congdon were outstanding in the line. On November 2 the Buccaneers won a bitter struggle from Boone Teachers 19 to 12. Continued on page forty-five 22 THE CHALK LINE 1936 Basketball Basketball practice opened on December 2 with a large squad of promising candidates for varsity positions. Returning lettermen were Todd, Dyer, Kilday, Oakes, Thornton and Speigle. There were also several capable reserves from the 1935 squad and numerous freshman hopefuls, many with brilliant high school records. On January 11, the Buccaneers journeyed to Boone and took a game from the Boone Teachers, 35 to 30. Cash, Todd, and Dyer led the scoring for the Bucs. The Teachers won their second conference victory against King College on January 14, by a score of 39 to 34. They were forced to overcome a big lead at the end of the first half. Cash and Dyer led the scoring for the Bucs, amassing 31 points between them. On January 16, the Teachers won over Lincoln Memorial University, 47 to 43. Despite the close margin of victory, the Bucs played their best game of the season up to that time against the Railsplitters. Cash and Dyer led the scoring while Todd, Kilday, and Ryburn played a superb floor game. On January 18, the Bucs won their fourth straight conference victory against Tusculum, 36 to 26. Cash and Dyer led the scoring, while the defensive play of Todd and Kilday held down the Pioneer total. On January 20, the Professors dropped their first game of the season when they lost to Carson-Newman, 30 to 46. The Buccaneers lost another conference game to Maryville, 48 to 31. The Bucs were wild, fumbling passes and missing shots they should have made. On January 29, the Corsairs defeated Tusculum for the second time. The rough game was featured by 14 foul points by each team. Cash, Dyer, Kilday, and Ryburn led the scoring, while Todd’s floor game was invaluable. In the next game the Buccaneers made it two in a row over Boone by a score of 46 to 34. The game was a thriller; the lead changed hands often until the waning minutes when the Bucs forged ahead to a comfortable lead. Continued on page thirty-six 1936 THE CHALK LINE 23 OSasetmli Coach Gene McMurray started baseball practice on April 1st with only a few men who had had college experience. These men were Chambers, Todd, Boyer, Anderson, Garland, Thornton, Kilday, Atchley and Bowen. New men reporting for practice were Ryburn, Brainard, Cash, Henry, Davis, Glover, Hea¬ ton, and King. Coach McMurray has built a team which is one of the finest in the history of the school. The season opened April 2 at Carson-Newman, where the Bucs took the Eagles for a double header. Chambers pitched the first game, in which the Teachers came from behind in the ninth to score nine runs with two men out. Brainard pitched the second. The Buccaneer batters pounded out five home runs. On April 23 the Teachers beat Boone 11 to 4. Brainard pitched, keeping Boone’s hits scattered. On April 27 the Bucs beat the Buffaloes 5 to 3. The game was close, going 12 innings before the Teachers got the edge. Cash gave only six hits and struck out 13 men. The Bucs went to Lincoln Memorial University on April 29 to play the Railsplitters a double header. They won the first and dropped the second by a close score. Chambers pitched 6-hit ball to win the first game 7 to 3. On May 4 the Teachers entertained Maryville. They lost 3 to 2. Chambers pitched a fine game, giving only five hits and striking out 12 batters. 1 l lie Buccaneers made it two straight over Milligan on May 7 and beat them here 4 to 1. Brainard pitched a two-hit game. Cash hit a homer with the bases loaded. On May 8 the Teachers beat Milligan a third game 15 to 1. Garland was on the mound, and gave only five hits. Milligan pitchers were hit hard by every member of the Teachers College lineup. Coach McMuray’s dub beat Carson-Newman two games here on May 9 by a score of 12 Continued on pacfe forty-five 24 THE CHALK LINE 1936 Cemtte The Teachers College Buccaneers opened the tennis season with the brightest prospects in the history of T. C. tennis, and they have more than equalled the hopes of Dr. Wheeler, tennis coach. The team has played twelve matches to date and has won eleven. The sole defeat came at the hands of Wayne University, of Detroit. The team has smothered most of the teams in the Smoky Mountain Conference, and has already cinched the conference championship. Ten men have taken part in varsity games this year. They are Oakes and Shelton, Seniors; Carson, Bullington, Lundy, C. Sherrod, H. Sherrod, Burton, B. Boyer, and McNeese. The following is the tennis schedule and the results of each match up to the present : April 11—Teachers 2, Wayne University 5; April 16—Teachers 6, Carson-Newman 1; April 17—Teachers 5, Boone 2; April 18—Teachers 3, Emory Henry 3; April 23—Teachers 4, Carson-Newman 3; April 24—Teachers 5, Tusculum 2; April 29—Teachers 5, Milligan 2. On May 4 the Bucs left on a five-day road trip. They played in four matches and took part in the State tournament at Sewanee, where they went farther than any other Smoky Moun¬ tain Conference team. The results of the matches played on the trip: May 4—Teachers 5, Maryville 2; May 5—Teachers 6, Maryville 1; May 6—Teachers 6, Cumberland 1; May 7—Teachers 6, Murfreesboro Teachers 1. After playing in the tournament at Sewanee the team returned home to complete their schedule. On May 12 they played their last match up to the present in which the Buc netters defeated Milligan 4 to 3. The remainder of the schedule to be played is as follows: May 15, Tusculum; May 16, Union; May 20, Emory Henry; May 21, Union. On May 22 and 23, the members of the Teachers team will compete in the individual tournament to be held at Lincoln Memorial University. This will end the 1936 schedule. 1936 THE CHALK LINE 25 Crack The track season was opened by the Boone-Teachers meet on the new stadium track. B. Burleson, Southerland, Lucas,, Davis, Parsley, and Jamison proved to be a nemesis for the well-trained North Carolina team. Each man accounted for his number of points plus a few extra ones. New men, Brown, Boring, Field, Scott, Miller, Sabin, Smallwood, and Evans, fell into line for second and third places in spite of the fact that the 1936 track season was their first. On May 2, Coach McMurray took Jamison, Lucas, Brown, Edmonds, and Boring to the Conference track meet at Lincoln Memorial University at Harrogate. Jamison, outstanding dash man, confirmed the general opinion that he would rate a high winner in spite of the fact that he had lost form due to a two year “lay off”. He tied Woods of Milligan for high scoring honors; each took thirteen points. Lucas, Brown, and Edmonds also took honors, adding to the total points for the Buccaneers. At the Milligan-Teachers meet on the Teachers College field, May 5, almost every track aspirant on the Buccaneer team got his chance to compete. Lucas, Edmonds, and Jamison led the field with five first places, while Kitts and Brown were responsible for three seconds. Third places were taken by Field, Burleson, Scott, and A. Boyer. 26 THE CHALK LINE 1936 € Club The T Club has just completed the most successful year of its history, with Clyde Wayman serving as president, and Lloyd Thornton as secretary. Thirteen new members were initiated into the club this year, bringing the grand total of enrolled members to thirty-five. The new members were Davis, Brainard, H. Sherrod, C. Sher¬ rod, Cash, Willis, Glover, Ryburn, McKinney, Dyer, Brooks, A. Congdon, and Garland. The club will lose Wayman, Thornton, Oakes, Chambers, Brooks, McKinney, Shelton, Burleson, Byrd, and Willis, most of them through graduation; however, with the new men showing an active interest, the club is looking forward to another successful year during 1936-1937. The T men scored the biggest hit of the college year when they sponsored the first T Club dance ever given, in the college gymnasium, on Tuesday, May 12. At this outstanding social affair the following Teachers College superlatives were elected: Miss Teachers College, Mary Agnes Donnelly; Bachelor of Ugliness, John Oakes; Most Beautiful Girl, Mary Grigsby; Most Handsome Boy, M.

Fourteen juniors and seniors were invited by the faculty to become charter members. The club is primarily a scholarship society and membership is regarded as a great honor. The aim is to instruct and enlighten public opinion in an unprejudiced view of international conduct that is necessary for world peace. The club,, upon organization,, became a member of the International Peace Council set up by the Carnegie Endowment and has sister clubs throughout the United States and in foreign countries. During the year each member made intensive research on some current international problem and followed with an extensive discussion before the club. These reports created tremendous interest and proved to be of great educational value to all. Charter members of what we regard as a splendid organization hope that each year will bring added strength and glory to their club and its constructive work. 32 THE CHALK LINE 1936 1936 THE CHALK LINE 33 l ome economics Clufi 1 he Home Economics Club; with a large enrollment; has had a varied and interesting series of programs and social activities to boast about this year. High lights of the year have been a tea; a motion picture; a lecture on “Lighting in the Home” by Alyne Smelcer; parties g ven at the Gildersleeve home and at the Sterchi Club Room. For the Club s assembly pro¬ gram; it sponsored the “Kitchen Band” from Senior High School.

On the social committee were Mayme Hart, Edith Anderson, and Nelle Blackburn. A different method of conducting the meetings, in which general program meetings and social meetings have been planned alternately, has been very successful. This has provided for a wholesome time at each type of meeting. The general programs have varied from musical types to decidedly inspirational topical meetings. The socials have varied from talent types to weiner roasts and outings. The girls were divided into groups with a chairman for each group. Every group was re¬ sponsible for a program. Some very interesting and impressive programs were given. Vesper services, on Sunday evening from 5:00 to 5:30 o’clock; have been very enlightening. Y. W. C. A. girls from off the campus, as well as on, have been in charge of the services. This, most of all, seemed a time of true worship among the girls. Through the candy store profits, the Y. W. C. A. purchased a new cabinet radio for the living room of the girls’ hall. This is a source of enjoyment for all the girls. At Christmas-time, approximately thirty children were made happy through the thought¬ fulness of the Y. W. C.

This game was the closest and one of the hardest fought contests of the year. At the half the Teachers held a three point lead; and at the end of the fourth quarter the score was tied at 43 all. At the end of two extra periods the Teachers were ahead 52 to 47 as a result of goals by Cash; Dyer; and Glover. On February 8; the Teachers met the strong Emory and Henry five, a non-conference team, at Emory. Due to the fact that a conference game was scheduled on the 10th, Coach McMurray held out the first team except for a few minutes of the game. The Teachers lest 41 to 20. On February 10, the Buccaneers met L. M. U. for the second game. The Teachers had a big lead at the end of the half. The Railsplitters gave them a real scare when they cut the lead to one point with four minutes to play. A rally by the Buccaneers put them out of danger and gave them the victory, 39 to 33. On February 18, the Buccaneers saw their conference title hopes fade as they lost to Maryville by the score of 40 to 35. Maryville’s ability to throttle the Buc attack gave them the victory. On February 22, the Buccaneers met the Milligan Buffaloes in the first of two games that meant as much to them as all the rest of the schedule. In the first game the Buccaneers won by the score of 37 to 35. The Buffaloes put up a strong fight, leading several times by as many as five points, but the Bucs tied the score and clung to a two-point lead. Near the close of the game with the score tied, Jo hnny Oakes dropped one through which decided the game. The second game was won by Milligan 37 to 24. Oakes led the scoring for the Teachers. The Buccaneers have had a most successful season. Despite the small average size of the squad they were able to win enough conference games to give them second place in the Smoky Mountain Conference race.

The musical groups repre¬ senting the college have participated in many school and civic programs as well as numerous out-of-town engagements. Possibly the outstanding growth in the music department this year has been in the band; which now boasts of thirty members. This organization; with snappy new uniforms; has lent color to the campus and has been a factor in the promotion of school spirit. It has played many programs in nearby schools and climaxed its season by being the official band for the State Rotary Convention and for the broadcast over WNOX in honor of Johnson City; May 17. It also took active part in Johnson City’s 50 Years of Progress week. The orchestra has shown a gradual improvement and has added weekly appearances in assembly to its list of activities. It has also furnished incidental music in connection with plays, accompanied the operetta; The Mikado, and played for commencement. The glee clubs have had a busy year; climaxing the season with their rendition of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado. They served as the nucleus of the great community choir which took part in the 50 Years of Progress celebration; and combined with the A Capella Choir ren¬ dered the music for the commencement exercises. The Choir itself, which has featured sacred music, has given several programs in local churches. The brass quartet and vocal and instrumental soloists and ensembles have been constantly active furnishing programs for various civic functions. 1936 Campaigns of Coi’s 3rmp At the beginning of the year’s debating campaign the debatorS; with the approval of Pro¬ fessor Cox, decided to enter a five-man team in tournaments at Boone; N. C.; Winthrop, S. C., and Nashville, Tenn.; rather than to take a two-man team to the district Pi Kappa Delta tourney at Houston; Texas. The boys who made the trips were M. F. Parsley; Willard Garland; Neil Sabin; Robert McNease, and John Oakes. Oakes did not participate in debating this year; however; he won honors in other speaking events. The first tournament of the year was held at Boone; N. C.; primarily for a practice meet, lasting only two days. On March 9, T. C. entered the tournament held at Rock Hill, S. C., where John Oakes grabbed first place in the after-dinner speaking contest, and won honorable mention in the impromptu event. The debators won four engagements, defeating teams repre¬ senting the colleges of Guilford, Catawba, High Point, and Charleston. The final contest of the season was the state tournament held at Vanderbilt University, in Nashville. Again John Oakes won a first place, this time in extemporaneous speaking. The debators won two con¬ tests, beating teams from Murfreesboro Teachers College and the University of Chattanooga. Numerous other contests were held with neighboring colleges, primarily for practice purposes. Through graduation this year the squad will lose the services of Oakes and Garland. Oakes has been a member of the varsity for four years, and has won many honors in various speaking contests. Garland has been a member of the team for only two years. Additional effort has been put forth this year to promote more interest in public speaking. One new feature of the speech campaign was an intra-college tourney, with medals for winners in every event. This contest seems likely to become an annual affair. 38 THE CHALK LINE 1936 “You’re most likely to find it at KING’S” We invite you - - to test for yourself this quotation that comes from the lips of many a smart “Teacher”. whether your want is a high fashion or one of the minor everyday necessities of life. 141 NGS EAST TENNESSEE’S MOST COMPLETE DEPARTMENT STORE “Where Those Who Know Buy Their Clothes” ....

Boyer and Latteral, freshman fidlback, did the damage. In the last quarter Kilday, end, blocked a punt and Co-captain Taylor fell on it across the line for a touchdown. Boone came back to score twice before the end of the thrill-packed game. Boone’s tallies were the result of the Teachers’ ragged pass defense. In beating Boone, the Teachers scored three touchdowns against one of the toughest teams in the conference. On November 9 the Buccaneers, weakened by absence of key men in the lineup due to in¬ juries, lost a close game to the Maryville Highlanders, 6 to 0. The muddy field hampered the running attack of both teams. Neither team was able to cross the goal line until Maryville scored on a blocked kick. Clark, Sabin, and Parsley, linemen, and Boyer, back, were the most consistent players for the Buccaneers. On November 16 the Teachers and the Cumberland Bulldogs met ip a sea of mud. The Bucs lost 26 to 0 against the team that went on undefeated to win the conference championship. The Buc backs were stopped cold by the Cumberland linemen who outcharged their lighter op¬ ponents. On Thanksgiving day the Buccaneers won the feature game of the season as they defeated the Milligan Buffaloes 9 to 6. This victory gave the Teachers two out of the three games played between the schools since they resumed relations in 1933. The Bucs kept the Buffs in defensive territory during the first quarter and scored early in the second quarter after Lucas and Boyer had driven the ball down the field into scoring distance. Boyer scored from the two-yard line. Taylor converted. Co-captain Taylor added two more points when he tackled a Buffalo back for a safety. Milligan scored after a brilliant passing attack. Eleven new lettermen were added to the roster at the end of the 1935 season. These were Thornton, Brooks, McKinney, Deere, B. Congdon, Kilday, Latteral, Davis, Chambers, Brainard, and Manager Bacon. The squad will lose five lettermen through graduation. They are Co-captain Wayman, Burleson, Thornton, Brooks, and McKinney. Co-captains elected for next year are Mose Jones, guard, and Bill Sabin, center. These men were elected at a banquet given in honor of the football squad by the senior class. Prospects for 1936 are encouraging. At least fifteen lettermen are expected to return, capable reserves from the 1935 squad will be on hand, and promising high school athletes have signified their intentions of entering the Teachers College. With this wealth of material and the right breaks Coach McMurray should have little trouble in producing another winner in 1936. ' Baseball Continued from page twenty-three to 5 and 7 to 6. Brainard pitched the first game and six innings of the second. Chambers relieved Brainard in the last three innings and allowed only one hit. On May 12 the Buccaneers played L. M. U. a double-header here, winning the first by a score of 6 to 1 and the second 6 to 4. Thad Cash pitched both games. In the first he allowed only one hit, a bunt. The team has won 11 out of 13 conference games, and has won the championship. Coach McMurray has a well-balanced team with fine pitching and a group of boys who can hit in the pinches. Hugh Todd has set a scorching pace at the plate, hitting well over 550 for the season. Chambers and Kilday have also hit dangerously. At the end of the season only three seniors will be lost through graduation: Chambers, Garland, and Thornton. 46 THE CHALK LINE 1936 Mrs. Hodges has always believed in serving you the best Quality Produets at the Cafeteria; for that reason she has served you Southern Maid Ice Cream for the last decade.
