B h e Buccaneer 1937 IBuccaneer SDrators Led by tlieir dapper young captain, Robert B. Cox, the fire-eating, bull slinging Buccaneer orators marched to Winthrop College, Rock Hill, S. C., on December 14 to begin the season. The event was the Strawberry Leaf Tournament in which the Buccaneers won two places. Gunnar Teilmann took first place in Extemporaneous speaking while Neil Sabin won second in After-dinner speaking. The next campaign carried these corsairs to Boone, N. C. Captain Cox, wishing to bring home few prizes, wisely took some girl representatives, and true to his expectations they captured several places. Hortense Powell won first place in girls’ Oratory and in girls’ Extempore. Betty Johnson took second place in the latter event. Jack Dunn, in order to uphold the masculine end of the team, took first place in men’s Impromptu. Turning swiftly from Boone, the Buccaneer band made a thrust at Bristol, Virginia. Virginia Intermont College was host to another tournament in which we were recipients of more awards. The senior members of the team walked away with the honors with M. F. Parsley taking first place as Individual Debator and Betty Johnson as girls’ Extempore and Impromptu speaker. Flushed with victory, the Buc orators then turned to Tusculum College to win the Smoky Mountain Conference Debate Tournament, the first decision debates of the year. After this, debates were confined to home territory until the team again left for Rock Hill, S. C. In the South Atlantic Forensic Tournament, the team won eight out of twelve debates in competition with thirty other colleges and universities. First place in After-dinner speaking fell to Neil Sabin. The crowning event of the year was the dual-province tournament of Pi Kappa Delta held at Johnson City. Schools from the Kentucky and South Atlantic provinces assembled with us for an enjoyable two-day meet. The Buccaneer teams went to the finals in debate; Parsley and Sabin lost to Wake Forest in their first and only loss of the season thus losing the tournament. Gross and Belvin also made a splendid showing. Sabin captured first place in After-dinner speaking. Those who are newcomers to the Buccaneer orators this year are: Betty Johnson, Hortense Powell, Gunnar Teilmann, Jack Dunn, Wayne Lacy, George Trotter, Bill Belvin and Mack Gross. These were all awarded membership in Pi Kappa Delta, national honorary debate fraternity. The highly successful season enjoyed by the team was in a large measure due to the newly created Speech Activity class and the cooperation of all the students. Ci)e tuOent T5oDp The Buccaneer Student Body has been ably led for the past year by: M. F. Parsley President Anne Bryant Vice-President Almeda Converse Secretary-Treasurer
