q Sophomore Class History
We, the Sophomore Class of 1918, will be the Senior Class of 1920. The eoin-
ing years seein long and tiresome but with a steady heart and a 'brave spirit may we
yet reach our goal.
lVe have the noteworthy distinction ot being the largest class in sehool, hav-
ing fifty-five boys and fifteen girls, making fd total of seventy nieinbers. Among
this number one foreign country and 'live States are represented.
The Sophomore Class is also noted for its quality as well as quantity. We
are proud to say that one oilf our classmates is direetor ot the Band, while another is
recognized as the best athlete in school. Also another member is captain-elect of
the football team. He has tour classmates who will aeeompany him in his drive
for football laurels in the year 1918. ln baseball we also have some who rank
with the best.
The Class, -21,5 a whole, is rer.v'dilige1it. never failing in its worlc. There
are none who fail in their duty while some do "l'.I'fI'fL cllzty."'
lin the years to eonie. when this world war is over and peace reigns again. one
will find names written in the Hall of Fame that were once written on the roll
of the Sophomore Class of Gordon College in 1917-18, This is no idle boasting.
for we see around ns many great men and women in the making.
Those who tall from our ranks in our inareh toward graduation will alwavs
have our sincere love and remembrance.
lf we cannot all he great. may we- .
"Live in fl, lrozwc. by the side of Hia road
.ind be ll frzvncl to man?
Our troubles are over, our glad hearts think,
They are just beginning, our friends advise
They tell us that We are on the brink
Of a chasm of tears and sighs. '
Our friends are truthful, Without a doubt,
Their advice may be sane and sound,
But let us for ourselves find out,
Don 't worry us with what you have found.
Don 't tell us our days of happiness are past,
But let us see and for ourselves find out,
Let us be happy while happiness last,
Because cares will come without a doubt.
And while We are living let us live,
Of life let us make what we cang
If troubles do come, not a darn do we give,
We will meet them like a man.

Senior Class History
We, the members of the present Senior Class, enrolled as Freshmen in the
Fall of 1914. Then our chances of getting a diploma. from Gordon seemed vague
and a long Way off. After overcoming many difiieulties and receiving the hard
knocks which are a part of every Freshmanys life, We came to be Soph'omores.
The word Sophomore seemed large to us at that time and ive oarried our
heads high as if We rivaled even the Seniors in knowledge. Our class had the
distinction of being the largest that year. and we contributed more boys to the
athletic teams than any other elass.
After enjoying our well earned vaoat-ion we came back in September of 1916
and found ourselves to be Juniors with only one more year before We would be
called Seniors. This proved to be our hardest year and we found before the term
wasicompleted that we had to do some real hard work before that much coveted
diploma could be called our own. We are proud to say that several members of
our Junior Class are now serving their Colors in Europe.
And We have at last reached our Senior year, the elass which was so far off
when We were Freshmen. We have enjoyed our stay at Gordon and we regret to
part with the friends made while here. Many of us Will probably be fighting for
our Country soon, but no matter where we are or under what circumstances we
are, We .shall always look back with pleasure and satisfaction upon the days
spent at Gordon. , '

Last Will and Testament of the
Senior Class of l9l8
GEORGIA, PIKE COUNTY.
In the name of Uncle Pete, amen. We, the 'Senior Class of one thousand,
nine hundred and eighteen, of Gord-on Institute, of the County of Pike, State of
Georgia, being of perfect sense and memory, in our own opinion, at least, though
there be others who think otherwise, and being about to depart this life, do make
this our last Will and Testament as followeth:
' Item I. We do make our brilliant but worthless Junior Class heir to all our
personal property, to wit: One rusty pocket knife owned by Arthur Sheppard, said
knife to be used for whittling on desks, as its present owner has used it. Also a
book entitled "Devil Demon Dave" owned by Joe W. Gilbert. Joe bequeaths this
to the Junior Class with the express provision that they read it during school hours
and he guarantees that he who readeth same shall tlunk from who flung the chunk.
The girls of this class hereby bequeath to the Junior Class one thousand four hun-
dred f1,400l love letters which they received during school hours and earnestly
insist that they have said letters bound into a volume to be passed down from gen-
eration to generation, yea, even from everlasting to everlasting. This class as a
whole passes down to the Junior Class their "Senior Privileges," Q?j which they
have enjoyed immensely during this school rear.
Item II. Earle Mathews, of this class, wills Perrin Collier a book entitled
"Advice to Young Lovers? with the solemn admonition that he read the same
and abide by its teachings. The girls of this class think he needs it.
Item III. Rex McKinnon hands down to Horace Wright, of the Sophomore
Class, his special ability to Ushoott' Professor Watson. because he strongly believes
that, like himself, Wright is a man capable of making zero every time he is called
upon in class.
Item IV. Levy Stroud and Berner Lynch do jointly bequeath to the Fresh-
man Class one Clj plug of Brown Mule chewing tobacco, advising said class to
chew hard and get nourishment from same.
Item V. It is our desire that the high seriousness of Nell Eley, the brilliance
of Jessie Collier, and the dignified bearing of Alta Peacock, be passed down to
Nell Smith to be canned and preserved by her.
Item VI. Bill Pace, of this class, does hereby resign his otlice a-s captain
of the Extra Duty Squad and desires that Joe Oliver take his place. It is, how-
ever, in tears that he resigns this office so suited to him.
Item VII. While on the ball park during the Gordon-Mercer football game
a fair dame addressed Francis Dart as "cutie.', It is our will that this name be
passed down to Chvarlie Clark. Mr. Clark is to keep this eognornen as a. sacred
relic from this class. i
Item VIII. It is the desire of the Senior members of the band that their
aptness to produce such harmonious and melodious sounds upon their instruments
be passed down to the other members of the band with the sincere hope that they
will be able, as the Seniors themselves have done, to win the disgust of all who
may be so unfortunate as to hear them.
Item IX. It is Ruth Humphreyts will that her ability to catch the boys on
her string of lovers be passed down to Sara Smith. It is, however, her kind
request that she not ustringf' all the boys so that they will have for study some of
the time used otherwise in writing love notes.
Item X. C. V. Baker hereby 'chands downv to R. W. Jenkins part of his
extreme height, but We-radvise him not to follow in Baker's footsteps on account of
the 325.00 reward out for the arrest of the person guilty of breaking are lights
over the city.
Item XI. It is the desire -of this class that the dignified reader of this, our
last document, Thomas H. Cox, pass down to Charlie Clark his gifted ability to

Junior Class History
Somewhere in the fairy Southland there is a garden of wonderful possibili-
ties. Plants have grown and Hourished there. for more than sixty years. They
flourish during their allotted seasons and then fade to give place to others. .
In 1907 a. little plot in this garden was set 'aside for a new collection. What
a flutter these six small flowers were in when they knew they were to be trans-
planted into new soil! They had been growing close by some other plants. and
were afraid to be set apart and left to take root all alone.
On one 'September day they were carried into the new garden and given their
places. They were beautiful Howers and dew drops were lingering on their shining,
The next year one more was added and the next. two others came. Another
came the following yea.r and then after a lapse of two Years one more was added
to the list. These eleven were all that flourished. took deep root and grew to be
a part of the beauty and fragrance of the garden plot. Many others had been
planted during these years. but they either withered away or were transplanted into
On September, 1914, a. wonderful thing happened. This group of plants had
outgrown the narrow limits of its first garden home. so the entire collection was
lifted and set amid new surroundings in stronger soil.
Everything was new and strange. The gentle gardeners of former years were
no longer to be seen. Great strong beings were all about who no longer coaxed
them into growth and bloom but who gave quick sharp commands that made the
flowers tremble and strive to put forth bud and blossom.
lt was also wonderful how the number increased. From all over Georgia they
came and from other States too. The Land of Flowers sent some of her ehoieest
specimens as if to say, "None can rival me." The old North State sent one as
sturdy and vigorous as one of her native pines. and Mississippi was not to be left
behind because Alabama had her representative in the group.
They sent their roots deep down into the soil and grew to love the garden and
longed to produce the fairest flowers and the .most delightful fruit. That is, those
who remained began to cherish those ideals. for as in the other gardens. many
lingered for onlv -1 brief stay.
D . 1
And now the eleventh year is drawing to -a close. A careful survey will show
that fifty-eight plants are still growing inthe garden. They are deep rooted and
in-atured. Already they are beginning to realize that only one more year of this
pleasant association remains for them.
Then the sheltered garden must eive iliac-e to the broad highways of the

Freshman Class History
In the year 1916 Gordon opened her doors to the humble Sub-Ilreshnian
Class. In 1921 and the years to follow we hope to repay old Gordon for the many
kindnesses shown us in our school days here by showing to the world, through
our lives, what Gordon really is. We hope to go out froin this institution to put
into practice the lessons we learn here.
We believe that as the rose is more beautiful and fragrant in bud than in
blossom, so is the budding life of Freslnnan more full of joy and happiness than
the full-blooin rose of Senior. As the bud slowly opens we hope to throw out a
refreshing innuence and as the rose finally blooins in all its glory, to-have attained
the dignity required. ' i g
As history is made up of statistics, or rather -as statistics are essential to
history, it inay be well to state a. few facts of which our class is justly proud. We
claini as our own niany niedal winners in various fields of education. We have a
future military genius and a. nian who is the only one, in the nieniory of the pres-
ent student body, to succeed himself 'as Class President. We have a ineniber who
bids fair to take first honor at the college she attends. Five of our boys have
enlisted in Uncle 'Saints service, three in the infantry. one in the navy and one in
the aviation. t
Sixty inernbcrs answer 'tI'Iere l" when the roll of our class is called. Of this
number, forty are boys, the remaining twenty are, as you have guessed, girls.
In conclusion let nie Quote the words of one of our honorable Professors: mllhis
. I 1 ,
class is the best class that Gordon has ever had from Adam to the present day."

Sub-Freshman Class History
On September 12th, 1917, we proudly started our college life at Gordon with
thirty members in our class. We then felt that we had reached the much longed
After many hard knocks we realized that we are still treading the road to
"Somewhere,J' and are now wise enough to see that there can be no halting of our
achievements if We but press on with renewed vigor day by day.
This being our irst yearrwe have had very little history, but we have had
many varied events to befall us during our brief stay here, but the greater portion
seemed to be prevents rather than events.
It seems that the upper classmen think that we are somewhatgreen but we
think that we should be respected to the same degree that we are forced to endure
trials and hardships. If this were done we would certainly be respected for, it
seems to us, our trials are great and ever-occurring.
We are laying the foundation of our 'education in a. period full of situations
that try the resourcefulness of men, and every day we see the well educated man
forging to the front. With these living examples before us as a spur to our natural
ambition, we are confident the members of this class will make a record that our
school will be proud of, and one that will bring glory and honor to themselves.
The years ahead seem long but with a brave heart and a determined will we
will continue onward and in 1922 we will receive our diplomas, thereby completing
the first five miles of our journey, and will pass onward with a. firm resolve in
our hearts to enjoy the beauty and happiness of each successive mile and endeavor
to help someone else do likewise.

Ideals of the Eunomian Society
First, We must consider ivonianis place and influence in the world. At pres-
ent it is the time when the place and influence of women Should be one of the
most outstanding features in life. Thus We are endeavoring to make our Society
stand for just the finest and very best principles. High school training is indeed
one of the first real opportunities in training the fundamental basis in the develop-
ment of the character of Women. In order to stand for the very best in the World
today it is essential to have early training along this line and the Eunomians are
trying in every conceivable way to do their Mbit" towards this.
Let us consider Ruskin's viewpoint. He states i11 his lecture, f'Sesame and
Liliesf' that the wlorld is as good as its women. This fact alone should arouse
in us an ambition to so govern ourselves that we shall be capable of assisting in
the carrying on of the momentous work of the coming years. If the World is to
be judged in this way, then now of all times during the present crisis, we should
strive to make the world what it can and should be. 'What could be more consol-
ing to women than to know that they were held responsible for the success of the
World? It is only necessary to have the proper training to do this. Why not let the
Society stand for something worth while? Then it behooves us to accomplish

It is a well founded fact that the work of a ,strong and progressive literary
society is a powerful agency for development along educational lines. This fact
is exemplified in the literary societies at Gordon 3 for they have trained and sent
men from their halls, who bye their achievements in. the different phases of life.
have heaped honor and glory upon their Alma. Mater. In this worlc the Philo-
mathean Society, whose history it is my privilege to set forth, has done its full.
share. Would that I could dwell upon those sturdy, big hearted men who in
the past blazed the trail for the young society and tirelessly moulded the crown
she was to wear after they had gone, and who ferarlessly stood for the honor ot
all things Philomathean. They are gone, but there are footprints on the sands
of time unmarred by the great sea, forgetfulness. In the Fall of 1906 the Philo-
niathean Society was organized. lt was organized with three principal objects in
view: First, the cultivation of friendship among its members, second, the acquire-
ment individually of a high degree of mental culture, third, the attainment per-
sonally of a high standard of morality.
From the very beginning the organization grew land prospered. and all its exer-
cises were carried on with a vim that spoke well for the interest and ability ol'
these pioneer members. As time passed the society grew larger and more etlicient.
In the Fall of 1917, under the presidency of Major Paul Solomon, the society be-
gan- an-other very successful year. The membership this year is very large, due' to
the return of many of the old members, land the success in getting many of the
new students. The meetings are held every Friday afternoon in the study hall and
an hour is spent very profitably.
The society has been remarkably well represented in every phase of school
life. In football by Baker, Day, Hammond, Jones, Lynch, Miller, Poole, Riley,
Sanders, and Waldrop. You will also find her full share on the baseball iield and
track team. Among the otlieers of the Battalion, the Major and the First and
Second Captains are Philomatheans. On the Stai of the Animal the society is very
creditably represented. Among their many other assets, the Philomatheans have
some of the best debaters in school. The society was represented in the annual
Christmas debate by J. P. Corry and T. E. Stokes. In January Tiieut. C. Y. Baker
was elected president.
This year hasbeen a most successful one from every point of view. Mori
interest has been manifested by the members than for years past. lt would be idle
even to attempt to enumerate our many victories in the past. and it will suliice to
say that we have always won our share of the laurels, and have been creditably
represented by our members on every, occasion. Let us hope that our societys
future may be even brighter than her past, and that she may ever struggle for her
noble ideals, and 'l'ullill her part in the training ot the minds ol the young men ol'

One more term is drawing to a close, and one more suceess has been scored
upon the almost unniarred record ot the Euphradean Society. The events of an-
other victorious year will now take their place in the Euphraclean anirals.
Our society. in both past and present, has ivon a name for itself that may not
be easily erased from the minds ot its members or stroin the minds of the whole
school. From the very beginning it has shown itself a, leader in everything, and
the instances l shall cite you here. are only a few of the numerous occurrences
which go to make up its history. ln the Sixth District School Meet. held year
before last, our society was well represented. ln tact, every man in the contest
was a Euphradean. ln past years the majority of the eonnnissioned oliicersrot the
Battalion have been Euphradeans. Out oiff tivo champion debates held between the
two societies here every year ive have not lost a one in tivo years. We feel almost
immeasurably proud ot these facts. yet we feel prouder still that ive have been
able to uphold this glorious record during another year for. as usual, the Euphra-
deans Won the Christmas debate this year. and 'as usual. did as well in other
lines- The Band, for instance. consists almost entirely this year of Euphradeans.
namely: Palmer. Sheppard. Cox. Roberts, -Pierce. Brooks, Mathews, Clarke. Bran-
ham, and Smith. Several ot the football and baseball players Were Euphradeans.
In short, our society has been ivell represented in every Held, and as long as the
trne Euphradean spirit dominates the actions of its members. as it has always done.
we may rest assured that they ean be relied upon always to do their parts.

Gordonvs Military History
As early as 1886 the lirst President of Gordon began military work with the
students. Having had training in his college days he organized the boys into
company and instructed them in the manual. of arms, preparatory to the estab-
lishment of a Military Department. His rapidly failing health compelled a. dis-
continuance of the drill.
ln 1890 his successor. Hon. Jerre M. Pound. without knowledge of the liOl'1110l'
effort, conceived the idea of making military training a part of the regular course
of Gordon. ln selecting his faculty for the year he made choice of a teacher who
had attended a military college and engaged Prof. J. C. Woodard, of Jackson, Ga.
The Board of Trustees placed one thousand dollars at President Pound's dis-
posal. Fifty guns. seven sabres, and an entire accoutreinent except cartridge boxes.
Pr-of. Woodard took charge and soon organized the boys into a line battalion.
Among the olhcers of the first battalion appears the name of W. D. Candler. Color
Sergeant, who is now a Captain in the regular TT. S. Army, and is with Gen. Persh-
ing in France in the Paymaster's Department.
ln 1891 it was found necessary to almost double the equipment and two can-
nons were secured from Governor Northern for use in the school.
The Secretary of War was empowered by an Act of Clougress in 1892 to detail
seventy-live army officers to colleges throughout the lfnited States. Three of these
oiiicers were due the four States of Georgia. Florida. Alabama. and. South Caro-
lina. On May 5th one of these otticers was ordered to report to Gordon Institute.
liieut. Alexander R. Piper, 2nd Inf. 17. S. A.. took charge of the work as Com-
mandant and Professor of Military Science and Tactics.
Prof. Woodard turned over to him a line battalion of one hundred and twenty
Dr. J. P. Thurman presented to the school a gold medal to be awarded to the
best drilled cadet. This medal continues to be a. much coveted prize.
A silk flag was presented by Misses 'Sandford and Brown to the best drilled
company. This instituted the competitive company drill which is an interesting
feature of Commencement Week. At a later date the Pettibone Company offered
to donate a. Saber each year to be presented to the captain of the best drilled ,com-
pany, and Hon. A. R. Willingham, of Macon. Ga., contributed a fund for the
annual purchase of at gold medal for the best all-around military man.
In 1896 Lieut. Piper's detail expired to the regret of the entire community.
He has done his work so well that the Gordon Cadets were known far and wide as
the best drilled battalion in the South. He had entered them in numerous con-
tests With other battalions and Gordon invariably -bore off the prizes and honors.
liieut. Frederick L. Palmer, 21st lui. U. S. A.. succeeded l1im.
lmmediately arifter the declaration of war with Spain in 1898 Lieut. Palmer
was called to his regiment and Col. J. DeQuincy Nash, who had been Major ot
the cadet battalion in 1896, was secured as Commandant. He had been engaged
in military 'instruction in otheiz schools and had been appointed a member of the
Governor's Staff. He continued in the capacity of Commandant until the Spring
ot 1903 when Captain E. T. Winston, a retired army otticer, was detailed by the
War Department for the position.
lin March of 1905 the 'Military Department of Gordon was advanced from
Class "CU to "A," thereby making it necessary to detail an active army otlicer to
the work. Lieut. R. H. Hearn, 9th Int. U. S. A., was detailed for this duty. An
entire new equipment was furnished. Lieut. Hearn took the battalion to Macon,
Ga., on April 24th, 1906, to engage in a military contest and the nrst prize-a
silver loving cup-was won.
ln April, 1907, thebattalion went to Albany for a week's encampment and
as usual, won first prize in contest. On May 25th Lieut. Hearn took the cadets to
Atlanta, Ga., to take part -in the unveiling of Gen. Gordon'sj Monument.
From 1908 to 1912 Lieut Gad Morgan was detailed to dutv at Gordon.
The equipment was increased by the addition of two field pieces and a 'lfuli
supply ot breech loading rifles, thus enabling the school to olter three lines ot mili.
tary work, the band, the artillery, and the infantry.
Durine' the Fall of 1910 the battalion went to Savannah G-a. on the occas-
. , b - , 1 7 J .
sion oi: the unveiling of the Oglethorpe Monument, and in May of the following
year, went into encampment at Warm Springs for one week.
Lieut. N. M. Cartmell was detailed to succeed Lieut. Morgan. After eighteen
months of efficient service he was recalled to his regiment.
Lieut. N. W. Riley succeeded him and held the position about the same
length of time. -
Lieut. Frank K. Ross, Gth Cavalry, U. S. A.. was given the detail in 19.14.
In 1915 graduates of Gordon were given the privilege of entering the Military
Academy at West Point without examination. Cadet A. Q. Litsey, of Dublin, Ga.,
of the Class of 1915, was the first to enter in this way.
Lieut. J. K. Jemison, Coast Artillery, U. S. A., was detailed to succeed Lieut.
Ross in 1916. On March 9th, 1916, Gordon was designated a Junior Unit ot the
Reserve Otticers, Training Corps and Sergeant D. E. Edwards was detailed to
assist Lieut. Jemison.
With the declaration ot war with Germany on April 6th, 1917, a spirit ol'
patriotic enthusiasm pervaded the entire school. Already there were ten Alumni
serving as lieutenants in the Philippine Constabulary Service and immediately
fourteen .members of the Class of 1917 prepared to enter the Otlicersa Training
Camp at Ft. McPherson.
A Lieut. Jemison was promoted to Captain and recalled to his regiment in June,
In September Col. D. A. Frederick, a retired officer, was detailed to Gordon,
and under his capable guidance, a. battalion is being trained to join with hundreds
of other Gordon trained men to upho-ld the honor of America. .
As a Junior Unit of the Reserve Officers, Training Corps the battalion ot
Gordon Cadets is an active part of the great military system of the United States.
The uniforms worn are of the same inaterial and design as those worn by the
ofheers in the army and the Government furnishes a substantial part of the Cost.
The U. S. R.'O. T. C. on the arm of each man inspires him to strive
to prove himself worthy of his calling and his country.
The band has been a prominent feature of Gordon's military training during
in-any years of its history and at no time has it done better work and aroused niore
enthusiastic interest and support than during 1917-18 under the leadership of Direc-
tor Sam Pierce.
A 'Service Flag will soon be presented to the school bearing a star for each
Gordon man who has responded to the call of the Colors in the hour ot his Countrys
trial. The Senior Class has undertaken to raise the money with which to buy this
Flag, by the presentation of a play during Ckuninenceiuent. About tour hundred
names have already been placed on the Honor Roll and each day others are be-
Military training should be one of the primary developments a man receives
while young in life. The strength of any material structure is no stronger than
its foundation. In order to build up a superior mind it is necessary first, to see that
this mind is based, onaa. strong foundation, which can only be a strong body. Noth-
ing will lay as many of these foundations in short time as military training
The military training our young men have received ,at military schools has
proved of a valuable asset to our country in its present emergency. Countless
numbers of our young men graduated from such institutions have entered the Gov-
ernment's service as soldiers and officers. Even when there is no prospect of war
there can be no doubt but that military training gives self reliance, teaches order
and orderly habits, tends to health, therefore to comfort and happiness. lt also
influences a man or boy so that he feels a pride in himself and his country.
teaches him prompt, unquestioned and implicit obedience to rules and regulations.
a.nd such habits inculcated into a young man teach him respect for the laws and
rights of his fellowmen. Such principles infused in him will thereby cause due
respect for the laws of his country.
Pacifists may tell us there will be no more war but we are now in the greatest
war the world has ever seen and as yet history does not indicate that there will
not be wars in the future. The history of the United States shows that we have
had a war almost every twenty-five years, although this country's well known ideas
of peace and liberty have not obtained for us that ardent desire for perpetual peace.
It is unquestionably true that a man who is prepared to defend himself is less
likely to be attacked than one who is not. The same principle is applicable to
nations. Therefore, the safest way to keep peace is to be prepared against attack,
and the best known way to prepare is to have a large per cent. of the male popula-
tion trained in military matters. Although the training may be only elementary it lr
of vast importance. To the same degree that a country is great and powerful, so
are its citizens respected by -other nations, its commerce and industries thrive and
the country as a whole gains in wealth and honor.
As before stated military training improves a man physically. mentally and
morally. It makes of him a law abiding and respected citizen, ever ready to guard
his rights and those of his country. As a country is composed of its citizens, a
virile country is one in which its citizens are trained to do and dare.
Numerous citizens attended the training camps established by the Govern-
ment during the first year of the present war and none, so far as known, has
expressed any other opinion than that they were benefited in every way and all
say they believe that their lives will be prolonged by the training thus obtained.
Statistics show that from ten to forty per cent. of the men examined for the
army have been rejected for physical reasons alone in different sections of the
country. This large 'percentage of disability would never have occurred if good
military training had been given these men as they grew to manhood.
COLONEL D. A. FIiliDliIilCK.
He was a handsome lad-his mothers comfort and joy. I-Ie had left home
with a smile -on his lips as he sallied forth to get some training along military
lines. Every week he wrote home and his letters were cheerful and gay, giving no
hint of the impending disaster. The Captain of his company complimented him
on his proficiency in military affairs land all-seemed to be going smoothly. At home
his mother was seated on the porch reading over his last letter. She looked up
with a feeling of misgiving as she saw a telegraph boy bringing a telegram to her.
She seized it and quickly broke it open. The message was brief. i
"I shot our Major-come at once." Bob.
She dropped everything and caught the next- train that would take her to Bob.
As she got olf the train, Bob rushed forward to meet her and Caught her in his
arms. Ashe released her she exclaimed:
g'But, Bob, I thought you said you shot the Major ?',
"Oh, mother, I got so lonesome I just had to see you."
"But you should not have told an untruthf' she said, reproaehfully.
"Oh, I didnlt, mother. He teaches our tactics class-and I made 97?

In connnon with everything else beneath the sun, the Expression Department
of Gordon during 1918, has been affected, by the Great War. The work ot the
class has been inarlred by a seriousness of purpose and decided tendency toward the
practical rather than the ornamental.
Early in the year suggestions were ,issued by the War Department that the
eliioiency of officers in the various branches of the service would be greatly increased
by the study of eloeution, consequently the officers of the Battalion ot Gordon Cadets
began the work of voice culture leading to clear articulation and enuneiation.
For this reason the dralnatic work of the class has given way to the develop-
ment of the vocal chords. There has been, however. at the same time. earnest
study of interpretation and the readers of the class will prove a pleasure to their
friends, not only at the present but in the future, as a result of this year's work.

Olf all Gordon's notable departments there is no one more worthy ot praise
than that of music.
Music has always played an important part in the history of the school, noth-
ing has ever been complete without it. It gives life, cheerfulness and whole heart-
edness to everything. Each day at Gordon is begun with a song by the school
which enlivens everyone for the dayis work.
Gordon has had a number of distinguished teachers in this depa.rtinent. 'l'herr:
is an old proverb, "A prophet is not without honor save in his own country ff but
in the case of our present teacher this maxim does not hold good. After having
graduated from Gordon in 1913, Miss Marian Bush. who further pursued her study
of music at Shorter College and the Cincinnati Conservatory ot Music, came baclc
to her Alina Mater this year as the head of this Music Department. She has been
very successful and has a total ot .thirty-th.ree pupils.
'l'he Gordon Band is another prominent feature of the school, lfnder the
direction of Mr. Donalson in the Fall it did well, but he soon left Gordon. Al-
though several. months intervened from that time until our new director came.
not lfor once did the boys stop practicing. Mr. Pierce took charge of the Band in
the Spring, and although he is only a student, the Band has surpassed all 'll01'H'16l'
records under his leadership.
One of the niost enjoyable occasions ol? the year was the Minstrel. gotten up
by the boys alone. and presented on March 15th. .lt was then that the public
bet-aiiie aware ot the real musical ability 'of the boys. The Glee and Mandolin Club.
as well as the Band and Orchestra. showed up to a great advantage and merited
the greatest praise from everyone whose pleasure it was to hear them.
Next year promises to be still more efficient in a musical war for Gordon.

The dove of peace it bravely shields,

And God 's kind n'1ercies rule the world. '

Review of 1917 Football Season
On September the twelfth Coach
Mosley made his annual call for foot-
ball candidates. He wanted men who
were filled with the true Gordon spirit
-do or die-for it was from these can-
didates that he was to pick his 1917
football team. 'lt was a sad evening
for Coach when he went down to Suni-
mer's Field to find only seven men re-
porting for practice. lf he, himself,
had not been filled with the true Gor-
don spirit he would doubtlesslv have
decided to -abandon the idea of even
putting out a football team. lt cer-
tainly was discouraging but Coach
made another call the next morning in
chapel and eleven men reported for
practice. Xow it was possible to have
a football team even if be was forced to
use these eleven men.
After another 1llOTlllllg'S call thirtv
men reported for practice. Little did
Coach Mosley believes that from these thirtv men he was to have the best football
team Gordon had seen in niantv a day. Coach was now in the best of spirits. In
looking them over he saw Da-v. Ielammond, Miller. Baker, Sanders. Pace and
Lynch t'rom last vear's lettered men. But he nnist. have more than seven to wear
G's and represent Gordon with true spirit. So now began the fundamental work.

be handled. Hot! So hot until your Jersey felt as if it was melting. Xot a single
one were Nquittersfi it it was a. little hot. Xow all were putthrongh' the strenuous
"barclening'i practice. Running. punting. tackling and falling on the ball were
soineof the things these would-be veterans of the gridiron were put through.
Beginning .a. thing is half the task and so with football. Dopes, milks, 'ice
cream and sundacs must be laid aside. Everybody must abstain from indulging in
the habit made famous bv Sir Walter Raleigh. Manager Baker arranged for the
first real scrimmage with the "Aggies on the Hillv to take place on 'Suinmei-is
Field. This game was representative of the types that are played at a season's be-
ginning. It was no more than a scrimmage for it continued only thirty-two minutes.
Captain Day at tackle urged his team on to victory. Gordon carried oi the
big end of the score to the tune of 39 to 0. lt was in this game that the Gordon
hnskies earned their sobriquet of "The Crimson Cyclone." As heard from a. specj
tator, "Geel That Gordon bunch going down the lield looks like a cyclonef' .And
from another. 'tYes. they look like a cyclone. a crimson cyclone." From here
on 4-lordon's team ol: 1917 was called 't'l'he tlriinson t'vclone."
ln looking over "The Crimson Cyclone" one might see as valuable additions
the following men: Jarrott, Faulk, Waldrop, Sanders. Poole. Jones Riley. Bran-
ham and Strozier. All were steady and gritty fellows who were willing to iight
until the last whistle blew. .
Henceforth on, players and students were longing to know what the outcome
would be the following Saturday. Manager Baker imported on the lirst train Satur-
day morning the strong team of Boys' High School. from Atlanta. All hearts
were beating above their normal allotted beats per minute when the whistle blew
for the fray to begin. .
From the kick-off until the last whistle blew it was really a famous gridiron
battle. Back and forth in the center of the field the two teams went. First one.
then the other in possession of the pigskin. Thus, for nearly three quarters. the
game proceeded. In the last few minutes of play, in the third quarter, '4The Crim-
son Cyclonet' swept down the field for the only touch-down during the game. The
kick at goal was a flzzle.
The season had now started and everyone was in ecstacy. Oh! If next Satur-
day would only come! It was doped that '4The Crimson Cyclonev would pound
Lanier down to fifty minus. Afterthe game was over Pace and Miller found that
their long "end around end" runs had netted them fa. 73 to O victory.
But the players and students had scarcely subsided over their easy victory
when a vast gloom of doubtful expectancy was cast over them at the prospect of
playing the strong Tech Hi School in Atlanta, Ga. 'Sixteen men were shipped
to Atlanta on the following 'Saturday morning, arriving about nine bells, and the
game was scheduled for ten. One hour! What a very short time for anyone to
recover from traveling and especially inexperienced men, who had never taken a
football trip before, but who were fully aware of the importance of their transpor-

they- glanced at the grandstand and saw only Tech Hi,s colors and rooters. The
old men's advice was to disregard the grandstand. But alas! how impossible.
The game was on, Gordon receiving. Waldrop caught the flying oval, but had
scarcely taken a step before he was downed by a Tech Hi tackle. Gordonts hall

long end run. But -fate destined it to be fumbled by the new halthack. and in a

For three consecutive line plunges Gordoifs line held like a stone wall, hut
on the fourth plunge the ball was fumbled just at the line of scrinnnlage and re-

all in vain. Then a short end run was attempted. gaining six and one-halt yards.
but that extra half-yard netted Tech Hi a touchdown. ln kicking goal, the hall

Immediately "The Crimson Cyclonei' sa.w defeat staring them in the
face. Time after time the ball was carried within striking distance of the oppon-
ent's goal but it seemed each time that they were doomed to defeat or that "Old
Man Hardluck was playing ia. hand? In the second quarter, Gordon carried the
ball almost the length of the field on line plunges when the whistle blew, announc-
ing the end of the half. Again they were on the four yard line when a despicable
fumble lost for them the ball. '
It was a sad squad that sat in the grandstand that evening and saw Georgia--
Tech wallop W. N L. They certainly knew how to sympathize with W. di L.
lt was a sadder squad still when they stepped from the train at Barnesville
to face the sad news that had preceded them. But as the old axiom goes, "You
can't keep a good manf, and so with "The Crimson Cyclonef'
The ensuing days showed a marked improvement in 'tThe Crimson Cyclonef'
for it was soon to meet the strong team of the Second District A. tb M. School.
All were happy when they boarded the train for Tifton. The Gordon huskies found
their equal in the Tifton aggregation. as the scoreless tie shows. But all were
happy over the result, for every individual felt in his heart that Gordon had won.
To express it as one member of the team expressed it. "Well, we made two touch-
downs if they didn't give us one. We buckcd one over and they said that we were
off-side, and we secured another by an on-side kick. which they said that they had
barred just before we played them. Well, that's more than they can sayf' Enough
sa.id, for it happened precisely as he has said, but we have no complaint to make.
Again at home and waiting for Friday to come. lt was an easy task for "The
Crimson Cycloncl' to smother Locust Grove to a TO to O score the following Friday.
This was sweet revenge for the old fellows had not forgotten the score of 1916,
which was Gordon G, L. G. I. 20. '
Everybody was in good spirits, eagerly awaiting Thanksgiving Day to come.
Manager Baker had arranged to play the plucky team of the Eleventh District Agri-
cultural School in Douglas. Ga.. on that day. No one lagged in practice a.nd all
felt sure of victory. After the last whistle blew, ending the season of 1917. every-
one rejoiced over their splendid ending. Score: Gordon. 1-4: Douglas. 0.

MISS MARY ALICE MARTIN, Sponsor
If the lettered men of 1916 had chosen any other
player than Captain Day to lead " The Crimson Cyclone"
to victory they would have made a serious mistake. Day
was the logical man for the place as all realized. He
is a natural leader-a leader who can lead where lead-
ing is extremely difficult. In one word, he could put
more pep in the team than a hundred from any other.
He could keep pep in the team when they werefighting
against odds. "Bum" is a leader who is easy to fol-
low for he leaves no room for eriticismg he leaves noth-
ing undone and never gives up. He was a star in every
game. We are sad to note that Captain Day will not
be with us next year, He has played superb ball for
two years, serving his Alma Mater Well and he now
gives his captaincy to Miller.
MILLER, End t
Griggs Miller is to be our football captain for the
1918 season. We ,feel that Miller is a man well deserv-
ing this responsibility. If the coming team will but fol-
low Griggs' leading they will be sure of victory. Miller
was without doubt one of the greatest cogs in our last
ycar's team. He is quick, fast, and never loses his head.
He contributed a large number of points to our last sea-
son's score of 202 points by his long "end around end"
runs. He is hard to tackle for he runs hard, uses the
stiff-arm and sidesteps. With Miller at the helm we feel
sure of victory during 1918.
There is a time for all things, and just as easy as
"Coot" could make one split his sides on the campus,
just that easy could he bring seriousness to the men on
the football field. When Berner got serious, all were
serious, and oh, my! how they did go. When Gordon
wanted a gain of three or four yards all that was neces-
sary was an " Open up Coot, ' ' and away they went. Gor-
don loses Lynch this year and i11 him she loses one of
the best tackles she has ever put out upon the field to
uphold her honor.
Baker has the conscientiousness of knowing that he
starts everything. He is the one who started "The
Crimson Cyclone' ' on its victory stampede. They all wait
for him to pass the ball to begin each battle. As soon as
the ball is snapped they begin to gain. No one else
could do the things Baker does except him. Now for
instance, whom do you think could catch the opposing
quarterback before he has a chance to pass the ball,
except Baker. It is really amusing to see Baker stretch
out over the other center after the ball is snapped and
down the quarterback in his tracks. Baker doesn't only
do amusing things, he does vital work. He is the one
who gets the man, should he succeed in breaking through
the line. We are sorry to say we lose Baker this year.
Luck to you Baker!
Waldrop was the brains of "The Crimson Cyclone. " lt
was he who was held responsible to a 'large degree for
the success of every play. Waldrop was a new man but
he showed himself equally as good as our old men. The
right signal was always' on his tongue ready to ring out
in that clear crisp voice of his. It is no easy job to
do your part in a football game, and call signals too,
but Waldrop could do it. Waldrop could advance the
ball and play as good defensive as the rest and at the
same time see all the weaknesses in' the opposing team.
He also watched the mechanical side of the game, such
as the different plays and formations. We hope Waldrop
will be with us next year.
Here is the man of whom one of the leading coaches
in the Southern Universities said was the best player who
had been in prep circles since 1914. Bill fully deserves
this compliment and next year we look to find him hold-
ing down an end position for the University of Georgia.
Bill is exceedingly fast and made gain after gain on
"end around end" runs, but at cutting down interfer-
ence is where he shines brightest. At this he is superior
to any one in prep ball. This loss is indeed a ha.rd blow
to the Red and White but the entire student body feels
confident of his success elsewhere.

Here is a man we could always depend upon. Here
is a man who never failed us. It was Bob who was
always called on to make a short gain when we needed
it most. Bob is a peach of a fullback He is as swift
as a deer and as gritty as a bull dog. He was always
there by a large majority. We are sorry that Bob had to
leave us- C111'istmas-and he was a Senior, too. We are
nursing the thought tl1at Bob will come back this Fall
and play with us again. But if he does not return we
wish l1in1 the best of luck.
Things are not always what theylseem, and indeed, it
is fortunate that it is so. If looks and grace counted in
a football player H'SO1'ghlI11'lH would never have been
oneg When speed was needed Riley had it. He was a
sure tackle and it was next to a11 impossibility to make
any gains over him. Riley was cool and even in tl1e
most critical times he inspired his teammates to hold
by his cool slow methods of talking. Riley comes back
next year and will be a big cog in the 1918 machine.
Here is a 11ew 'man who showed us how todnake Gor-
don's Varsity at one year's trial.. We are glad that
he' made this trial for he proved to be a valuable addi-
tion to "The Crimson Cyclone." Poole deserves his lit-
eral name for our opponents could dive into him as much
as they pleased but he is just like a pool of water, he
didn't mind it. T. O. could run as good if not better
interference for the runner than any man on the team.
Poole will be with us again next year.
Coach Mosely exhibited a great deal of good judg-
ment when he selected Sanders to play tackle. Sanders
played in the backfield season before last but he proved
to be more valuable this year in the line. After he had
once been put in the line it seemed as if we could not
do without him to help check tl1e onrushes some teams
put up against our line. Sanders was also valuable in
the backfield when we needed a punter who could punt
from 70 to 80 yards. Sanders will be with us next year
and will probably be the best punter in prep ball.

When Coach persuaded Henry to come out and try his
wares in practice just before the irst game, little did
we expect to see him one of the mainstays of the team.
He is exceedingly fast, handles himself Well and is a
sure tackle. He could be counted on at all times to
make the necessary gains. He was in a class to himself
among prep players at kicking goals, and was inferior
to only one College player in the State in this respect-
Fincher. He proved to be one of the best safety men
that Gordon has had in some time and was "Arsenic"
to any runner who might elude the other ten Gordon men.
Men with the speed of Faulk were the cause of the well
earned title "The Crimson Cyclone," which Gordon
boasted so proudly. Faulk will be back next year-
Here We are, although the lightest man on the squad,
still he was the man chosen to play side by side with
Captain Day. This side of the line could always be
counted on to "open up." In Jack and Day lay the
pepper-Abox of the team. After every down, Way down
under the entire mass, we could hear Jack's "Let's go
Gang," which gave the Gordon team more confidence
than any other one thing. Jarrott was one of the hardest
tackles on the team and was in every play. It was he
who always got the men behind the line. Jack will be
with us again next year and We predict him to be a
A ' Skyspect. "
It is good to have a second brain that you can use
when your first gets dizzy, and this is exactly what
Coach Mosley had in Roy Jones. Roy has almost as
much brain work to him as Waldrop, but he lacked a
little experience. Roy promises to 'be the brain center
of this Fall 's team. Roy is quick, fast and supple. He
handles himself well and shows up good under ire.
We say Branham is a half, but he is not only a half,
for he could play almost any position on the team
equally as good as he could play in a halfback's posi-
tion. Without doubt he was the best utility man Coach
Mosley had. Branham is a very nice fellow to meet
anywhere except on the football field. If you meet him
there you are liable to get a jolt which will be the
Worse for you. If you want to see the bright lights
let him hit you. Hit 'em hard next year, Branham.

Review of 1917 Baseball Season
The outl-ook for the season was not by any means the brightest at the begin-
ning, in spite of the tact that more men reported at first call th-an had done so in
the past. The last of February saw the usual preliminary work well un-der way.
The weeding out soon began and by the time all had the "kinks" worked out, the
squad was cut down to a workable size.
There was only one lettered man and two scrubs back, around whom Coach
Mosely had to build a winning team to keep in accordance with the past Gordon
aggregations. This he did and did it mighty well. The prowess of this squad
was talked of far and near. They proved to be a big stumbling block to every team
whose chance it was to meet them. They cared for neither rank, reputation nor
newspaper dope. They all looked alike to this bunch. and they were always eagerly
awaiting the time to lock horns with the next doomed victim.
They opened the season by easily defeating the Gth District A. X M. School,
then came the two games with the fast L. G. I. Team, a team which was rated with
the very best preps in Georgia. Gordon won the first of the series by a. good mar-
gin, but the next day '4Toby', had the Gordon nine and the end of the ninth inning
found the count was against them by one run. This never worried them because
they knew that they had far the best team. And as a revengeithey overwhelmingly
defeated the Tech Hi Team from Atlanta. in both of a two-game series. Three days
later found them still in their angry state and they next handed the Dahlonega nine
a defeat in two consecutive games. lt was here that they secured four circuit
drives olf the delivery oit the Dahlonega Coach who -went to the mound to try to
check the Gordon rush.
The real thrill of the season, the time when the local lads were put to the
severest test. was the eighth game ot the season. when they met the fast Stetson
University Team from DeLand. Fla.. The game was fast and exceedingly spectacu-
lar. This team had just received a. dubbing at the hands of the Tech "Yellow
.Tackctsv on two days previous. But we base our claim -on the fact that we defeated
them to an even larger score than the Tech Team did. This game brought sweet
remembrance back to the old Gordon Stars who have retired here in this quiet little
town of Barnesville. They could easily remember the time when Gordon, ai prep
school, used to defeat Clemson, Sewanee, Tech and Georgia.. the Southis leading
universities. Next came the game with Gritlin, Ga.-Ala. League, and split even in
a two-game series with them. Then the other two games with L. G. l. came, the
Battalion went over in a body to help the Gordon nine win, but as before, they
broke even. Efforts were made t-o have these two teams meet in Griliin tosettle
the count, but the L. G. I. otlicials declined. Then, as Lanier had defeated the L.
G. I. Team twice, Coach arranged games with them to prove that he had the better
team and the result was that Gordon piled up a large score and thereby won the
State Prep Championship.

A Low Bouncing Ball to the Backhand
The Adair Country Club, under the capable leadership of William Ha.ynes, had
entered a. tennis team in the big city tournament. Each of the four clubs was to
have four members entered and the winner -of the tournament was to be given a
silver loving cup. Of course every tennis enthusiast of the city was intensely in-
terested in the tournament, although it was conceded by everybody that Brown, of
the Lawn Club, and Randall, of A-dair, would probably meet in the inals.
Bob Jones, a youth of nineteen, belonged to the Adair Club and his heart
swelled with pride as he watched Randall shoot the ball across the net, one after-
noon a week before the big tournament started. The team from Adair consisted
of Randall, Sikes, Caply, and J ones. Bob, of course, was J ones.
The date set for the beginning of the tournament was August 21st. On the
days immediately preceding, the members of the Adair team had practiced long and
faithfully. On the 20th a. light practice was held. Bob was in tip top shape and
felt that he had never played better in his life. Randall was a little weak on some
of his strokes but the club felt sure he would be all right on the morrow.
The 21st dawned bright and clear, Bob had an easy opponent in the 'Erst
round and breezed through in straight sets. Brown and Randall both won their
matches handily and seemed to be in good shape. Bob saw, in looking over the
draw, that he was on the easy side. He also noted that Brown and Randall, if
both won their matches, would meet in the semi-finals.
The second round produced no upsets. Sikes. of Adair, lost to Beck. of Lawn,
and Caply to Rice, of Lanard. The third round found Jones and Adair pitted
against Lowly, of C-arsong Randall, of Adair, against Blalock, of Lanard, Beck, of
Lawn, against Thomas, of Carson, and Brown, of Lawn, against Rice, of Lanard.
Bobbie knew lie had a hard man to beat but he noticed that he seemed weak on
backhand shots. So he placed the ball on his backhand with the result that he
won his match after dropping the first set. Randall, in his match with Blalock,
showed the same weakness that he displayed in practice before the tournament, but
won- by a. rally in the third set. Brown won his match easily and Thomas defeated
The semi-finals had been reached and found two good matches on hand. Jones
was expected to win over Thomas, mainly on account of the strength of his service,
while the match between Brown and Randall was a toss up.
Jones won the tirst set of the match with Thomas. but lost the second. The
third set was hard fought from start to finish, but J ones? service proved too strong
and he won at 7-5.
His match won, he threw a coat over his shoulders and settled back to watch
the match between Brown and Randall. He selected a position at the end of the
court where he could best watch Brown's play. The lirst set saw Brown a little
weak and this, combined with some lucky shots, resulted in Randall's taking the
first set at 'G-4. Br-own turned the tables in the second setand won by the same
score.. Bob had noticed however. that Brown seemed unable to play a low bouncing
ball to his backhand. As the third set began he watched this point closely and
he saw that while he played all other balls well he seemed unable to handle a low
bouncing ball to his backhand. The third set was a hard fought set but Randall's
old weakness reappeared and he lost the deciding set at 6-3.
Then gloom settled on the Adair Club, indeed. Their champion, the man
they had felt sure would win the tournament and bring the cup to the club, had
been defeated. The fact that they had a representative yet unbeaten and with only
one match yet to be played, gave them little comfort. No one gave Bob one chance
in ten of beating Brown, although he himself did not give up hope. He studied
the question of tomorrow's match over that night and thought of the number of
times Brown had missed a low bouncing ball to the backhand. He made a note of
this weakness and as he dozed off to sleep that night he murmured, "A low bounc-
ing ball to the backhandf' I
The finals of the tournament were to be played at four. Bob practiced a. little
that morning but not enough to tire him. After eating a light dinner he' lay down
and slept a couple of hours. He awoke at three and at three-thirty saw him on
his way to the court. He arrived in time to limber up and get ready to play. Brown
soon arrived and at four o'clock sharp they took the court to settle the champion-
Bob won the toss and chose to receive at the southern end of the court. As
he took his position, ready to receive the service of his opponent, he saw that almost
all the members of all four clubs were present to witness the match.
The first ball crossed the not and the match was on. Bob felt nervous for the
first game or two but this feeling soon wore off and he settled down to play his
The match was for three out of five sets but he realized that every set was
important and so he 'put all he had in the first set and won at 6-3. Brown was a
slow starter, so his friends didn't worry about the loss of one set. He got started
in the second set and the force of his service was too much for Bob, the set going
to Brown at G-2. The third set found the play fast and furious, with both win-
ning their serves. At 5-5 Bob served two double faults and lost his serve. He
made a gallant attempt to break through Brown's, but in vain, the third set going
to Brown at 'Y-5. There was a rest of seven minutes after the third set and this
helped Bob a lot. He came back rested, and by winning the first two games
obtained a lead that Brown never overcameg the set going to Bob at 6--L.
The first game of the fifth set found Bob serving from the southern end of
the court. He put all he had on the ball and won the game a.fter a struggle.
Brown wen his serve, 1-1. Bob won his serve only to see Brown do the same, 2-2.
Each was serving superbly, each trying in vain to break the other's service. The
set rocked along until the score stood 5-5. Bob had been too busy playing to think
out a pl-an of campaign but as he took his position to serve there came to his mind
the weakness of which he had noticed the day before. "A low bouncing ball to his
backhandjt he said to himself. "lf'll try it!! He served and served hard but a
double fault, a lucky shot and two drives by Brown gave him the game, 6-5. Only
one game to set! Brown served carefully-too carefully, in fact, for in his effort
not to serve too hard he put both balls in the net. Bob won the next point by a
hard drive. Brown seemed angry at the turn things were taking and gathering
all his energies sent down a service so hard that it was impossible to return it.
Another one followed, and another, 40-30. Only one point needed to win! Brown
served the first ball. hard but Bob quietly slipped it back and took the back of
the court. Brown stepped forward, swung his racket and shot the ball to Bobfs
right. He jumped to meet it and sent it back-a. low bouncing ball to the back-
hand! Brown scooped weakly at it but failed to get it back across the net. Deuce!
Rattled over losing such a. crucial point, Brown served a double fault and then
missed Bob's return of his next serve, 6-6. Bob drew a sigh of relief. He hesi-
tated a minute before serving, then said softly to himself, f'Well, Brown, old boy,
itfs a low bouncing ball to the backliandf' He served, and partly due to the
strength of his service, partly to Brownfs collapse after the strain, won his serve
to love. With the realization of the fact that to lose this game meant to lose the
match, Brown seemed to recover himself and began to play his hardest. The irst
serve was so swift that,Bob could but tip it as it flew by. A second was returned
only to be smashed, The third point Bob won, and the fourth, by artfully placed
shots across court. At 30-all, Brown served a double fault and Boba needed but one
point to win. The ball flashed across the net and Bob slipped it back-a low
bouncing ball to the backhand. As Brown stepped in to meet it, Bob rushed right
into the net. Brown scooped the ball up weakly. The ball floated lazily up, seemed
to hesitate for a moment, and the crowd held its breath as it fell. The falling ball,
the ,flash of a racket-and Bob J ones, of Adair, was the Champion of Survey.

The sun shone brightly, and there was a slight breeze stirring the cool, crisp
air in a way that made everyone feel full of life, and even made the most phleg-
matic feel that interest in outdoor sports which is typically American.
It was Thanksgiving Day and on the campus of Philwano College could be
seen huddled groups of boys eagerly discussing the coming football game with El-
bardan University that was going to be played that afternoon.
I Soon visitors began to arrive and by noon the old college town had taken on
new life, for the game today was one of extraordinary importance, as it was the
deciding factor in the championship race, for the team that won would be the un-
disputed champion of the Association. Numerous numbers of Elbardan sup-
porters were there and also .many people from the country at large. '
At 2 :3O the crowds began to swarm into the stand, and soon the bright colors
of both schools could be seen floating among the spectators. The bands began to
play, and yell after yell rang out in the crisp air as the hundreds of lusty throats
shouted defiance at each other. The stands were soon filled and many were forced
When the teams trotted out upon the field at 3:00 o'elock a. perfect bedlam
reigned, the supporters of both teams shouting words of encouragement to their
Each team took an end of the field for their practice, and the subs fell out of
the bunch and went to their bench. John Hamilton was among them. He was
a smooth limbed youth of eighteen but seemed rather light for a. football player.
He was not disappointed when the coach had not chosen him to play in this impor-
tant game. No disappointment showed on his face but there was stamped unmis-
takably that feeling of hopefulness and desire to participate in this, the great game
of the season, the one that would decide the championship. He was an excellent
player, one who understood every angle of the game. but was too light to stand the
hard knocks of a full game. The coach had told him many times, "John, if you
only had size to match your nerve and skill you would be the best in the Asso-
The teams began to form on the field, Philwano had won the toss and chose
to receive. At 3 :3O there was a shrill whistle, the thud of a shoe as it kicked the
pigskin and sent it twisting and turning through the air. It had hardly been caught
When Elbardan's ends broke through and hurled the runner to the ground. Seven-
teen, twenty-three, forty-two, thirty-seven, clear and shrill sounded the quarterback
signal. He received the ball and started around left end but was only able to gain
one yard. Then a. line buck by the fullback and an end run around right end.
Both netted only three yards. It was evident that Elbardan had an excellent do-
fensive team for they fiercely cut down interference and tackled in a strong, clear-
cut manner. Fourth down and six to go. A kick was necessary. The fullback
dropped back and the ball went soaring down the field. It was caught by Elbar-
dan's quarterback, but no ground was gained. .
Most of the play was in the middle of the field, neither side having the ad-
vantage and seemingly very evenly matched. After hard playing the :first quarter
ended 0 to 0.
The teams started the second quarter fighting harder and harder. each one
calling into use the best plays they could command. Like supermen they fought,
each team vainly trying to puslrthe ball across the white line that seemed so far
away. Then Elbardan's halfback brought the crowd to their feet as he broke clear
of the scrimmage and dashed towards the goal. Only Philwanofs quarterback was
in his way. But this quarterback was a cool, experienced player, and he sped for-
ward to meet the runner, calculating the distance every step. As they neared he
gave a mighty jump and pulled the halfback to the ground. The visitor had gained
twenty yards by that 1'un and they were on the home teamfs thirty yard line. An
end run was attempted but no gain was made. The fullback fell back as if to punt,
and instead, drop-kicked. A great quiet settled on the crowd as the ball soared
towards the goal post. Would it make it? The ball hit the cross-bar, bounced
upward, and amid a. deathly silence, fell on the outside-a field goal. The time-
keeper's whistle sounded above the deafening r-oar of Elbardani-s yells, and the
half was over.
The beginning of the second half found the teams lighting as never before.
Elbardan confidently, Philwano struggling hard to overcome the three point lead.
All through the quarter they fought but the sc-ore remained unchanged.
Then the fourth quarter began. As he saw his team going down into defeat
John could scarcely restrain himself. Anxiety was stamped on his heavy features.
He looked imploringly at the coach but that man could only sigh and wish that
John was heavier. But he could not expect him to stand for any length -of time
in the face of the great defense that the visitors were playing.
The quarter was slipping away. Only three minutes and still no score for
the home team. Vainly the men of Philwano played, all wildly fighting to save
the day for their school. Elbardanis, ba.ll and two minutes of play left. A line
buck, but no gain. A punt to the middle of the field. Philwanois ball. On the
second play the quarterback was hurt and all hope departed from the Philwano
supporters when it was seen he would have to be removed from the game. The
coach called J olm and the boy jumped towards him. "Do your best l" was his
order as John trotted out across the field, every muscle in his slight body twitch-
ing in eagerness and expectancy. John called the signal for an end run by half-
back but he was unable to gain. The teams lined up. fifteen seconds left, one eager
thought rushed through Johnis brain. He could score the much needed touchdown
for his school. Seventeen, twenty-three, forty-two, thirty-seven. he called, and as
the ball left the center's hand the timekeepeifs whistle sounded from the side line,
but the ball was in motion. Like a Hash John followed his interference around left
end. But he was soon left alone and found himself side-stepping and stiff-arming
his way by several players. After what seemed a torturing long time he was by
them and he could hear the quick beating of someone very close behind him, and
see Elbardan"s safety in front rushing forward to meet him. Now they neared
each other and the safety made a flying tackle at John. Putting every bit of skill
he had into a. side-step, John was able to evade his outstretched arms, and raced
across the goal.
His schoolmates surged toward him and proudly marched off the Held bear-

SUPERSTITIONS OF GORDON
It is considered had luck to meet the creature known as O. D. after dark. It
is one,s duty to meet him during the d-ay and "extra dutyt' at night.
It is considered bad luck to chew gum before Prof. Holmes on Tuesdays-or
on any other day. .
The students think it gives them good luck for the professorto leave the room
durino' an examination.
It is thought to be a sign of bad luck when your name is seen on a certain
daily report. -
It is said that when your ear burns someone is coming. However, that was
not the reason Smith's ear burned just after Prof. Watson caught him throwing
era.yon. I might add that his ear was not all that burned. For a solid week after
that Smith always stood when the National Anthem was played-and between
times also. He surely believed in standing for the right. '
Not that students are black cats, or Prof. Eakes a. road, you understand, but
it is considered bad luck to "cross" the honorable Professor. '
Happily the students do not believe in ghosts. I heard one Senior say he hadnjt
the ghost of a chance to pass Trig.
As seven is considered a lucky number, generally, so sixty has a charm for
the cadets. 'Tis passing strange. but 'tis so.
Ordinlarily bad luck is bad luck in general. but a Latin Exam. in particular.
At that. bad luck is too mild a term. Sherman. you know, said war-well. a Latin
Exanr. is certainly war. Therefore-oh, well, let it go.
lftis nice to be able to read Caesar by Kinspirationj' but it's sure bad luck to
let the professor see the source of your inspiration.
Don't ever let Ab send you anywhere. It's had luck. Many boys have got into
trouble just over being Ab-sent. Oh, no!
And donlt fool with dyes. Especially tar-dyes. lt is something sticky and-
you will get stuck. ' '
Goose eggs are all right in their place, but it is a bad sign for a. goose egg,
your name and Prof. Paeekwithls class record book to get together. Decidedly so.
It makes German money depreeiate in value. Howjs that? Lowers the M-ark-of
It is a sure sign of bad luck when you see a bad guy acting in a wicked man-
ner. One guy cut French, knocked down a report and shot the professor, only
to get hung on an algebra problem. Too bad!

- They run lighter, they look better, and they last longer than any other buggy.
People will not buy any product in great quantities and for many years, unless it
has merit. You cannot make a continuing commercial success of any buggy that does
not deserve success.
We have been making SMITH,S BARNESVILLE Buconzs for fifty years. They outsell
any other make of buggies on earth. There are more of them made and more of
You look for a safe bank in which to deposit your money. It is just as important
to put your money into a safe buggy. In both cases the degree of safety is determined
largely by its reputation.
The purchase of a buggy involves one of two things-investment in a certainty or
speculation in a possibility. The unknown or new buggy may turn out satisfactory,
but the selection of the buggy with the age and reputation is the wise course. Don't
'experiment with an experiment. Pay a little more and get the best.
E If Smith had not established the reputation of the Barnesville Buggy, you would
not have heard of the other fellow. If Smith did not make the best, he would not
have the imitators. The fact that a buggy is made in Barnesville or the South is not
a guarantee of its quality. "A whistle cannot be made of a pig's tailn in Barnesville

To Prospective Lana' Buyers:
Have you ever thought of the great productive lands in
South Georgia? Do you know that the Wire Grass section
of Georgia is the most fertile land in Georgia? Do you
know that there is no land anywhere that is as productive
as the land of this section?
In this time when there is such an enormous demand for
foodstuffs it is essential that one buy land upon which
large quantities of foodstuffs can be raised with as little
labor as possible. It is also necessary to buy land upon
which a great variety of agricultural products can be
The climate of South Georgia is very moderate, this being
a great help to agriculture. A moderate climate enables
an agriculturist to raise a number of food crops. South
Georgia is almost ideal in this respect. It is also a very
desirable place to live in. H
Farming is one way of expressing patriotism. Our
Government needs farmers.
If you would like to make South Georgia your home or
purchase a productive farm at a moderate price

and our tl3l25,000 worth of high-class merchandise, We are
splendidly prepared to render our customers a real service-
