Some, stich as the brick walk and the arch over the gateway, are new and many of us can remember ilieir construction. Others, such as the springhouse and the bridge, have been on this campus as long as anyone can remember. But to all these things on the Hill, and to the Hill itself, we shall attach many lond memories as, in future years, we look back to our many pleasant days at The . ( ademy. SPRINGHOUSE THE GATEWAY Although the gateway has stood in its present position since time immemorial, the iron sign was contriljutecl by Kerrigan Iron Works about 3 years ago and has now become a familiar local sight. THE CAMPUS O N On the wa to class? Three day dreamers That horrible English Watch it! Two mutts bully. THE HEAD MASTER . . . MR. SAGER Five yeais ago a new head master came to M. B. A. Of course, a certain amount of doul t prevailed in the minds of the students, but in the succeeding years everyone has realized time and again that r. Sager is the perfect example of a leader and gentleman in every respect. With Mr. Sager at the helm, Af. B. A. has been steered scholastically to a peak it has never before seen. He knows how to mix work and play, but like all successful men, he puts work first. His possession of a deep understanding of boys enables him to deal fairly with them. His pleasant personality and keen sense of humor makes it easy for him to make friends. We, the students of M. B. A., are thankful that we have Mr. Sager to direct us, because we know that his word is that of wisdom and honor. n ASSOCIATE HEAD MASTER . . . HOWARD ALLEN One of llic most familiar faces around our campus is that of Howard Allen. After graduating from M. B. A., he attended Murray State I ' eachers College returning here in 1930 to direct athletics and serve as assistant head master. During his years as athletic director. Coach has produced many fine teams which have given him one of the most l)rilliant coachi ng records in Nashville. Coach is well-liked by all the students and his many friends. He can usually he found strolling around the campus whistling or singing one of his favorite tunes such as: " By the Light of the Silvery Moon, " or " Pretty Baby.” “Judge,” his dog, is his constant companion on and olT the campus. His new home and Ford station wagon will be integral parts of M. B. life in future years. Just this year, the familiar members of his family: Mrs. Allen, Leeannc and Judy have been joined by a third daughter, Susan. Congiatulations. folksi Coach has done much toward teaching all students respect and sportsmanship and has truly become a part of school life. AIR. R. T.

SPONSORS yl DIXIE FIFTY YEARS Football had its bcj inning at M. B. A. in 1899. In the second year ol play, a Maroon team on vlH(ll the late Liemenani General Frank An- drews played was declared |)rep school chainj) ol’ Nashville. Ky Kuykendall, coach ol ' this sciuad, received one dollar per practice session as pay. Fhe . cadeiny continued to produce good teams through the ensuing years, but it was not until the mid-twenties that the Maroon-clad teams reached their peak. The elevens ot 1925 and 1921) were both “point-a-minute” clubs, and their ama ing records can be viewed today in the Honor Room in the Main Building. The high- est scores lor the respective years were 103-0 OF FOOTBALL scored against Castle Heights in 1925 and 101-0 scored against Wallace the I ' ollowing year. 1 he depression years were also lean years for football at M. B. A., but with the arrival of Howard Allen in 1934, things began to look up. Coach Allen played football at the Academy during 1927 through 1929. After playing for Murray (Kentucky) State Teachers College, he returned to M. B. A. and took the coaching- reins. Since that time the names of Howard .Allen and M. B. A. have been respected in foot- ball throughotu this area. Then, in 1948, he had his first undefeated, untied team. This great Maroon eleven has at last bettered the records of the great teams of which Coach was himself a member. With his fifteenth year of football finished, Howard Allen holds the record for time spent as coach at M. B. A. Coming here in 1934, he had played at the Academy from 1927 to 1929, and after that, had played at Murray (Kentucky) State Teachers College, where he was considered one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of that institution. Coach’s first year at M. B. A. was not very successful, but from then on, he has consistently produced better gridiron combines than probably any other coach in this vicinity. Through the 1918 season, his teams had won 83 games while losing 34 and tying 10. Coach has won four Interscholastic league crowns, in 1937, in 1938, in 1942, and in 1948. In addition, his team won the Mid-South crown in 1938. Of them all, however, 1948 was the first year that he had a team to go undefeated and untied. But Mr. .Allen is not a football man alone. His basketball and base- ball combines are always respected in Middle I ' ennessee, and more often than not his teams leave the hardwood or diamond victorious. We congratulate Howard .Allen on his magnifi- cent record in the past and wish him continued success in the future. COACH ALLEN THE RED TEAM STARTS TO ROLL The Maroon football team of 1948 proved to be the best in the history of the school, so far as the won-and-lost records go, winning eleven without losing or tying a game. This fine record was indeed a fitting climax to fifty years of foot- ball here at the Academy and gave the Big Red an undisptitable claim to the mid-state title. The team was also awarded the AA league trophy in the Interscholastic League here in Nashville, which is the first winning football trophy awarded to the school since Coach Allen came here in 1934, despite the many fine teams that he has prodticed in the intervening period. Coach departed from the old single-wing and short punt formations this year and installed the split-T. This tricky offense was first unveiled at Hopkinsville, Kentucky on Saturday night, September 18, in a game which saw the Maroons tied twice before pulling away in the home stretch. The boys gave ominous warning of what was to come as they emerged with a 21-24 victory, with Sophomore Fullback Jimmy Ray putting on quite an impressive exhibit of his powers before his injury the fading minutes of the game.

On the lollowing Friday nighl, the Maroon team again hit the road, journeying this time to F. I. S. and emerging with a score of •F[-0 in their favor. I ' he highlight of the night came in the fourth cpiarter with the Red team on their own one-yard line. Otiarterback Charley Blackard faded behind his own goal and tossed a pass to End Chuck Hawkins on the nineteen. Fhe lanky llankman was never touched. Still away from home, the raroons played at DuPont rm the night of October 8. After Blackard was in j tired in the first quarter things looked indeed dark for the Redclad warriors. Btit Stib Andy Spickard provided an agreeable stirprise as he performed admirably in the clutch. Halfback Billy Joe Ehrhart provided the winning spark as he passed for one TD and ran the other over. And Fackle John Roberts made a grand contribution to the victory as he got a loose ball when DuPont had the ball on the M. B. A. two, and thus saved the Maroons from an almost- certain score. Fhese various factors combined to give the Redmen a 12-0 win.

A rejuvenated Red team look the lield tlie second hall and scored once in each (juarter to ice the game. Final score: M. H. A. 21, Springfield 13. Next in line lor the Rolling Red Feam were the Tullahoma Wildcats. In a slow game at Ttillahoma, M. B. A. got eighteen points and the ’Cats got none. With the left side of the iMaroon line out-weighed by twenty pounds to the man, their performance was surprisingly good. On the following Friday night. Alumni night was observed at M. B. A. and many old grads returned to see the Maroons take Clarksville into camp by a score of 27-(i. Blackard passed for three of the six-pointers and ran the other over to take top honors for the night. In the final Here Comes ‘Hawk Miller Back within one point of the Red Team. After a half-time talk by John Flockett, subbing for Coach Allen, who was scouting Springfield, the Big Red soon got under way, and the game ended with the score 27-6 in favor of the Harding Road lads. With their road trip finally ended, the Maroons took on the Purple Panthers of Father Ryan on the night of October 22. In a free-scoring con- test, the Red Team came out on the long end of a 28-13 score . On the following week came the first real test of Maroon power. The Springfield Yellow Jackets, rated one of the best teams in Middle Tennessee, came to Andrews Field. Taking ad- vantage of M. B. A. fumbles, the Jackets punched two and an extra across to lead 13-7 at half- game of the regular season, the Maroons engaged once-mighty Cohn. The Tigers still had life as they took the kick-off and marched down the field to score the first TD of the night. The Maroons struck back, but with very little fury, for Cohn managed another marker before they were finally buried under a 35-13 score. In the final game of the year, played at Frank Andrews Field on Thanksgiving Day, M. B. A. met Isaac Litton in what was considered by many local fans as the prep dream game of the year. In the first half many spectators, seeing the Maroons play for the first time, wondered how the Big Red had gotten through the regu- lar season undefeated. They fumbled twice in the first cjuarter but held on their own two-yard line only to have Blackard’s punt blocked and recovered behind the goal for the first Litton score. Another fumble set up the second Lit- ton score, and the Redmen were trailing 12-0 at the half. The second half was a completely different story. As soon as the Maroons got their hands on the ball, th ey drove down to score. Fhen came that beautiful punt return by Wor- rall down the sideline to make the score 14-12 in favor of the Big Red. Both teams got a marker in the final quarter, and M. B. A. won by a margin of one extra point. After the game the alumni, patrons and friends of the school gave Coach Allen a new Ford Station Wagon in appreciation of his fifteen years of coaching here on the Hill. For their sparkling play during the year, End Charley Hawkins and Halfback Billy Joe Ehrhart made All-City, and Hawkins made All- State. Among the unsung Maroon heroes were: Halfback Bobby Worrall, who was unexcelled on pass defense; Quarterback Charley Blackard, who did most of the passing and punting during the season and called signals in addition; Full- backs Jimmy Ray and Wilbur Creighton, who were both offensive and defensive demons; and Linemen Lee Lance, Bill Price, John Roberts, and Don Wade, all of whom played a lot of good football during the season. The season was strictly one of team victories, with very few games being one-man shows.

B. A. On Thanksgiving Day, 1948, Montgomery Bell Academy ended its fd ' tieth year ol football, riiat afternoon M. B. A., undefeated and un- tied, met Isaac Litton, also undefeated and un- tied. The Redmen could not seem to find their footing the first half, and with the help of many of their own mistakes found themselves trailing by a score of 12-0 as the half ended. Coach Allen, using his deep understanding of boys, de- livered a short half-time talk to the team. As the second half got under way, the red color of the M.B.A. jerseys was subdued by the heat of the team. Playing football for the first time that day, the Maroons quickly amassed twenty-one points. Although the Lions fought back, they could not overcome the inspired M. B. A. team. Final score, M. B. A. 20, Litton 19. Thus was ended perfectly fifty years of football at M. B. A. The breaking point of the game came when the second half was only seconds old. Bobby Worrall, second M. B. A. great to bear that name, gathered in a Litton punt on his own thirty- seven yard line. The wiry little back did not vary his path two yards as he twirled and twisted down the west sideline of Andrews Field for the initial score of the game.

The season got under way on ihe nigiil ol December 10 when ihe Maroons engaged Hoke Smith High ol Atlanta on the M. B. A. lloor. Hoke came away second best as did the next team to fall to the Maroons, the Peabody I ' igers. Then the Maroons met the Guihrie, Kenlucky aggregation on the Eagles’ lloor, and were stunned, 40- 15. Still on the wrong end of the score after the ensuing game with the Vandy Frosh, the Redmen practiced all through the Christmas holidays. This plan of action seemed to bear fruit, for Fox foxes Marshall Dubbed as the team to beat before the season started, the M. B. A. basketl allers lived up to this prediction throughout the season, so that when tournament time came they were still the team to beat. Boasting a record of 19 wins against 5 losses, the Maroon team proved to be definitely one of the better teams in the histoiy of the school. The record stands out still better when one realizes that two of the five losses were Chic key tips Where is it? beaten. But this did not slacken the pace. Quickly in order Ryan, Lawrencebtirg, Ploward, Mt. Juliet, North, White House and West fell to the Harding Road gang. This last game, with a 53-36 score, was another case of sweet revenge. But in the last game of the year, the Big Red never got started. They went down 25-40 before the Springfield Yellow Jackets at Springfield. lluis was concluded the regular season. But with the totirnaments coming up, M. B. A. stood a good chance of going far toward winning the State crown. when (lie cage wars were resumed, the Maroons dropped I. S., Ryan and Lawrenceburg in (juick succession. But in West, they met the lirst Inlerscholaslic League opponent to better them. Losing in an overtime by a 31-33, the Big Red bounced back three days later to sound- ly drub the Hopkinsville, Kentucky five. North, r. I.

Returning letter men for the ’49 season were: Andy Spickard, city doubles champ; Inman Fox, city doid les champ and city boys champ; and Fontaine McDaniels, former city boys champ. McDaniel Fox Fo round out the first six. Coach Rule had a fine crop of prospects to pick from including: John Hooker, Buzz Davis, Rascoe Davis, Marston Crump, Dick Fhorpe and Bronson Ingram. Leading the team was Captain Andy Spickard. Highlighting the season were matches with Darlington Military Academy and an extended tour through the south during spring vacation. riic ’19 Croll I ' cani was built around the one returning letter man, Hiilord Dickerson. Trying to avenge a subpar record ol ’48 will be Dickerson, Charlie Blackard, Lem Stevens, Robert iMcNeilly and Morris Ferguson. All have shown interest in the sport and are classed as better than average Linksmen. (ireatly lelt was the loss ol letter men: John Ambrose, Billy Howard, David Wiley, Walter Noel and Bernard Werthan via graduation. C oach Sager has planned an attractive and diflicult schedide with matches engaging leading prep school teams in the mid-state area. Stevens McNeilley Coach Sager Dickerson Blackard Alter a good season last spring, baseball at M. B. A. needs a few more recruits and cheerers this year. With the help of such mound giants as Bill Wade and Bob Veach, the Red Team managed to wind up their season fairly high in the stand- ings last spring. But many of last year’s players are no longer at The Academy. Bill Wade, Bob Ezell, and Billy Joe Ehrhart have all three grad- uated, and Bob Veach and Jim Morris have changed schools. Returning lettermen this year include Jimmy Morrissey, Jimmy Ray, Charlie Hawkins, Bobby Chickey, John Roberts, Buzz Davis and Don Wade. Although all outfield positions and all infield positions with the exception of second base can be filled with the material on hand, there is a weakness in the pitching stall. John Roberts will probably form the other half of the bat- tery, but at present Charley Hawkins is the only member of the squad that has (pialified as a pitcher. Offensively, the Maroons are weaker than they were last year, but still they will be no pushover. With Jimmy Morrisey, Don Wade, Jimmy Ray, and Charlie Hawkins returning, they could be- come one of the better batting clubs. If Bobby Chickey, Buzz Davis and John Roberts round into shape, the opposition had better watch i ts step. At any rate all the diamond representatives of M. B. A. will do their utmost to make the years of 1948-1949 the greatest year for athletics in the annals of the school. Top Roiu, Left to Right— Morrissey, Rol)erls, Miller, Clhickey.
