Currey, for many years the chairman of the Board of Trustees of Montgomery Bell Academy, gave unstint- ingly of his time, energy, and money to his alma mater, the school from which his father and his son had graduated. Always interested in furthering education, Mr. Currey insisted that honor, integrity, scholarship, and athletics were the important elements in any school situation. One of his greatest desires was to see MBA the best school, scholastically and otherwise, in the state. It was through his efforts that the school paid off its indebtedness, that the campus v as beautified with roads, trees, and walks, and that the school reached its high level of scholar- ship. In the words of one of the papers " the breadth of his interests was remarkable. Whenever he could be of help, materially or otherwise, he was a willing volunteer, and as a result, he has left his mark upon Nashville ' s historical, educational, religious, in- dustrial, and civic life. In him was an outstanding devotion to the preparatory school which he attended. He was a symbol of progressive thought and ' action, broad and tolerant citizenship, and reasoned thinking. " The example of Mr. Currey will always be a shining example for the boys of the school to follow. He was, indeed, a true son of MBA. F 0 R E lU 0 R D The Senior Class, desiring to leave something as a token of their experiences on the Hill and to express their appreciation to the faculty, board of directors, and any other supporters of present their 1952 annual. Memorable days lie behind us, but we look forward to a great future. M.B.A. has taught us well; it has given us a proper background and we realize it.

So from time to time relive your 1951-52 year at M.B.A. by thumbing through this annual and we, the seniors, will try to make Montgomery Bell Academy proud of us. THE EDITOR With very much pleasure and sincerity the 1951-52 edition of The Bell is dedicated to Mr. John Travis Younger, an upstanding citizen, a true friend, and the most that can be said of any man, a Christian gentleman. He is respected and admired by all his associates. Mr. Younger teaches history and will always be re- membered for his assembly talks, humor, and sound advice. The Senior Class of 1952 is indeed honored to have such a fine person to whom to dedicate their annual.

DEDICflTIOn Dr. Richard Lee Sager Headmaster There can be little doubt but that Dr. Sager is the ideal man for M.B.A.’s headmaster. A scholar, a leader, and a gentleman. He is wise, understanding, thoughtful, and a friend to all. Everyone admires and respects Dr. Sager and his abilities. He has done a lot for every boy at M.B.A. for they know that when Dr. Sager speaks it is the w ord of wisdom, truth, and honor. inTRODUcinc the mEniBERS ONAlD A.DUPlJNNTieR I BEN KINQREE.nt iOMERS P RANDOLPH % ' D.cJAY tJOHNS J VIO O RHODES, JR-. . joiners BdlSf THO r.cAte rpsu ett f. von .f. hoffM ' A.m; ai ' ec vAi - -easurei cTAS ' .E A rDERSO »: JR. ■ : ' ce J £‘sta ' en- AV.: HERMAN O BLACK JOOO,ar CAREV F. rttNElLCf DR. -R.!-. .SAgTEIS- 1952 P 4 t - ROBT.

Herman Blackwood Although getting off to a bad start this year, The Bell Ringer under the able direction of Char- lie Potter has again carried the “important” news of the school. With such features as “Bottom o’ the Afternoon”, “The Roving Reporter”, “Class News”, and “Muckle a Maroon Chuckle” we have been well informed on the loves and lives of each boy in school. Every school activity has been closely covered. This year, after things got started, Charlie re- ceived excellent co-operation from his news staff. Unlike past years, this year the writing burden has not been placed on one boy. Bobby Miller de- serves highest praise for his work in that line. Of course Mr. Rule as usual has done a wonder- ful job of overseeing the work. Without his help the paper would have been able to satisfy neither its advertisers nor its readers.

While at federal agent from the government proved to be HonoR council One of the key words here at M.B.A. is honor. In order to make the school a place where one’s honor means something, an honor code has been put into effect which was copied from that of the University- of Virginia. To make this honor code effective we have organized a group of boys whose character, honesty, and integrity are very high. This council functions more in its guidance and correctiveness rather than its punishment. The Honor Council is composed of representatives from each class. STUDEHT council In order to instill a sense of democracy in our school life the Student Council was organized. This group consists of representatives from all classes to represent the student interest in the government of the school. The boys of the Student Council are elected according to their leadership and scholastic rating by the members of their class. Sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Nashville, the Key Club represents the most active organization at the Academy. The members are elected upon the basis of their scholastic standing and their qualities of leadership. The Key Club undertakes many projects which lead to the betterment of our school. It also provides for entertainment in the form of the annual stunt night and the popular “Bell Hop.” With the guidance of Dr. Sager the Key Club has become an important part of our school life by developing character and making better citizens. senioR HonoR societv The Senior Honor Society consists of students who maintain a scholastic standard of 85 or above for the first two and one-half years at M.B.A. The Senior Honor Society is an honorary club and has no functions in school other than that of presenting a privilege of membership to the boys who work hard enough to earn it. juniOR HonoR socierv A grade-school predecessor to the Senior Honor Society. The Junior Honor Society consists of the grade-school boys who have kept their grades above 85 for three semesters. The boys who wear the emblem of the flam- ing torch symbolizing the Honor Society represents students who have worked truly hard to earn their membership in this exclusive national organization. monoGRfltn club The most dominant of all the clubs around “The Hill’’ is by far the Monogram Club which consists of boys who have won their letters in var- sity athletics. The chief duty of the organization is to render its servic e in various school affairs. Their emblem of membership is the familiar mono- gram worn on their sweaters and jackets. These are the boys who repre- sent M.B.A. on the field of athletics and we are truly proud of them. on t It Most Likely to Succeed TOMMY CATE Best Looking JIMMY ANDERSON Most Daring RIDLEY WILLS Friendliest RICHARD BIBB o n Biggest Social Lion DON MASSEY Biggest Gold Brick DON DuPLANTIER Loudest BEN KINGREE Most Energetic CHARLIE POHER MISS BETH BLACKARD . ’ fie Ringer” Sponsor for -■ ' I ' _111 ..T " Charles Potter, Editor " ' ' ' y.

Coach played center for four years on one of the great high school teams of his home town and then attended Cumberland College where he played half-back for two years. After spending several years in the navy in communications where he saw action in the Pacific area. He entered the University of Mississippi and finished his last two years of undergraduate work and a year of grad- uate study, earning his B.S., and his M.A. He coached four years in Mississippi before coming to M.B.A. and had very successful teams there. Coach is married and has three fine chil- dren. He and his family live on Stoneyway Trail. The class of ’52 wishes him much success in his work at M.B.A. and assures him that they will always be pulling for the “Big Red” whenever it runs onto the field. Coach Renegar Coach and Captain Cate Larry Wilson End Ridley Wills Tackle Starkey Duncan End Bill Brown End On Frank Andrews Field before four thousand fans on the night of Friday, Sep- tember 14th, the M.B.A. Maroons under the new coach, Wayne Renegar, played their first game of the season against a highly rated East ball club. When the final whistle blew, the score was dead-locked at 0-0. This marked the first time M.B.A. had been held scoreless in over three years, but other than that the fact was the spectators had seen a game of vicious tackling and solid blocking rather than the long runs customary to Big Red teams of the past. The game was nip and tuck all the way with both teams having scoring chances only to be stopped within the two-yard line. Captain Tom Cate and Jimmy Anderson were all over the field knocking the vaunted East attack backward. The tackling by Cate was the hardest ever seen by any M.B.A. player and on several occasions Cate would pick the opposing back up on his shoulder and hurl him back. A fighting M.B.A. team led by Captain Tommy Cate came from an underdog position to rip West 13-7. The four thousand spec- tators at Andrews Field again saw a nip and tuck battle. At the beginning of the game, LlBIl Ben Kingree Tackle Don DuPlantier Tackle Fraink Bainbridge Tackle Jack Bouchard Tackle West had the ball on the Big Red’s ten yard line, but was not able to push the pigskin over for the score. Finally, near the end of the second quarter, Mitchell pushed it over for the six points, and at the start of the second half West had completely dominated play. But at the start of the second half M.B.A. came out an entirely new team and in the middle of the third quarter Don Massey caught a punt and ran 73 yards before Berlin of West pulled him down from behind. On the next play Somers Randolph rounded end for the first touchdown. The deciding break of the game came when Bill Hoffman fell on a West fumble on their own two yard line. Taking advantage of this opportunity, M.B.A. scored on the series of plays with Massey making the touchdown. Brooks added the extra point and West’s upset was complete. This was a great victory for the Big Red because M.B.A. had never been beaten by West and in this game the Maroons were a decided underdog. West was out for M.B.A. blood but only tasted their first defeat of the year. After a courageous comeback Claude Jar- man stars in “Friday Night’s Hero.” On a pleasant Friday night in Gallatin staged a remarkable comeback to overtake Gallatin from a 14-0 deficit to a 20-14 win. Early in the first quarter Gallatin pushed over M.B.A.’s goal after a Maroon fumble on their own twenty yard line. In the second quarter, after a fifty yard pass to the five yard line, Gallatin scored again. The score at the end of the half stood 14-0 in favor of Gallatin. After a brief but efficient pep talk by Coach R enegar, M.B.A. scored after a sustained drive the first time they got their hands on the ball. The ball changed hands a few times and Jarman scored on a long end sweep from 35 yards out. Ben Adams Charlie Brooks Guard Guard It looked as if the game would end in a 14-14 deadlock until the Big Red drove an- other touchdown over in the fourth quarter. M.B.A.’s defensive standouts were Cate and DuPlantier. Before three thousand fans at Hodges Field in Memphis, the Big Red suffered their first defeat at the hands of the Memphis Central Warriors. For two quarters the Big Red played the powerful Warriors a good game, trailing only 14-6 at the half. The only score came when Randolph took Jarman’s lateral on the five yard line and carried it over. The most outstanding Maroon on the field was offensive fullback Bobby Chaffin. He ran hard and was the only Maroon who could gain against Memphis. Memphis fielded a team that just had too much man-power for Carlin Rolfe Barry Paget Guard Guard the tired Maroons. M.B.A. put up a valliant fight but didn’t have the guns to combat the boys from the Bluff City. The final score was 34-6. Journeying back to Nashville the next week, before three thousand fans at the West High School, the Maroons crushed Ryan 20- 13. From the beginning one could tell that the contest would be hard fought. Ryan came out with a new spread formation that gained considerably against M.B.A. The Big Red scored first with Chaffin bucking over but Ryan bounced back to tie the score at 7-7. Later Ryan fumbled in the end zone and Charlie Brooks fell on the ball to put M.B.A. ahead 14-7. With M.B.A. leading, Anderson intercepted a Ryan pass and while being Peter Moon Jimmy Anderson Guard Center tackled lateralled to Don Massey making the score 20-7. Ryan pushed over another score and the game ended 20-13. Springfield, playing before a large home town crowd broke their two game losing streak and handed M.B.A. their second de- feat of the season. Before M.B.A. knew what hit them they were trailing 14-0. During the second and third quarters the game was played on even terms, but in the fourth quar- ter Springfield slipped over two more touch- downs to make the score 28-0. M.B.A. ’s out- standing player along with Tommy Cate was Bill Hoffman who played an outstanding game at his end position. M.B.A. gained much yardage on the ground but just didn’t have enough punch to score. Herm an Blackwood David Sanders Guard Guard The game played in one inch of snow and freezing weather at Frank Andrews Field saw Hillsboro’s Mcllhenney score all the Burro touchdowns except one, that being when Wake- field intercepted a Maroon pass and went over for the score. M.B.A.’s line at times looked great and at other times fell completely apart. The Maroon offense was totally ineffective in that 3 start- ing backs were out with injuries. Hillsboro proved to be a one man team as Mcllhenney was the only Burro back to gain from the line of scrimmage. Hillsboro had a tough battle on their hands all the way but it was a case of M.B..A. not having enough of the regulars in shape to stop them. The only Maroon score came when Bob Chaffin in the last few minutes ran the ball over. The play was set up when on the kick-off Jarman had run the ball 72 yards deep into the Burro ter- ritory. Tom Cate played his usual fine game. It was the same story as a tired and worn M.B.A. eleven traveled to Clarksville. M.B.A.’s offense was stimied and when no scores were produced the defense seemed to lose heart, and let the Clarksville backs run through them. Jim Anderson and Tom Cate played their best for M.B.A. in the losing cause. M.B.A. completed its season with a loss to Litton on the home field. In desperation Coach Renegar took two linemen, Tom Cate and Char- lie Brooks and put them as halfbacks trying to make the running game come to life. Even though M.B.A. didn’t score, the two ex-linemen gained considerable yardage and played well. Volkert and company ran their reverses to perfection and their down field blocking was tremendous. Even though beaten, M.B.A. did not give up and the student body rose to the occasion as they cheered even when the final whistle blew as if M.B.A. had scored the win- ning touchdown. Ridley Wills, who had broken his ankle earlier this season, played his best game for the M.B.A. team along with Ben Adams.

With Ridley (Cat) Wills at 6 ' 4 " , and Jimmy Anderson at 6 ' 3 " , the Big Red had plenty of height. The season opened at Ryan and the boys took it on the chin 60-24. After we lost to Hume-Fogg, most people thought we were headed for a long, hard season. Next we journeyed to B.G.A. where, led by Jim Martin, we slipped past them 34-32 in overtime. The following game was in our gym where we battled Ryan to a 13-13 tie at the end of the first quarter. Our luck ran out in the second half and the Panthers romped 68-36. The Maroons went down further at West the next week and lost 56-29. It was then that the rejuvenation came about. Jimmy Dale, John Thorpe, and Louis Patton were moved up to the Varsity squad and stepped into starting roles. Allan Goar was moved up later. The next game was at T.I.S. where we won again 49-46. North, the following week, buried the Maroons 59-40. Dale and Thorpe shone for the Big Red. Back on our home court we met B.G.A. and edged them, this time by just one point, 44-43. The Maroons were led by Thorpe and Hoffman who each tossed in ten points. Howard came to our gym and found unexpected resistance. Battling till the end, the Maroons lost 52-46. Next we played T.I.S. and won 44-40. We beat Duncan 42-35 and the Maroons were on their way to the best season in two years. After Duncan we played Hume-Fogg and RIDLEY WILLS Gianf MBA Gager led right down to the wire. A rally by Hume-Fogg was climaxed by Hasting’s field goal in the last fifteen seconds and the Big Red went down 41-39. Next North beat us 47-38, although we played good basketball. The West Blue Jays invaded our gym next and out-scrapped and our-scored our team 48-30. We traveled up to Goodlettsville the next week. The highly-touted Trojans beat us 54-37. That Friday we played Lipscomb in their gym and lost 54-43. We improved over the last game and hoped for more of the same. We dropped another to Howard the next Tuesday 54-31. Lipscomb beat us 52-47 in our gym to end the season. For our first tournament game we drew Duncan, whom we had beaten seven points. With a magnificent rooting section behind us, we entered the contest. All through the game we led the Longhorns, once as much as eight points. In the last quarter Duncan pulled up gradually until they won out 47-44. Thorpe was M.B.A.’s big gun with 11, McNeilly and Martin had 9. The prospects for next year look very good, with Dale, Martin, Thorpe, Goar, and Buford back, plus Palmer Temple who was lost in the first Howard game due to a knee injury. The team will be more balanced, much more ex- perienced, but will lack the height of this year’s crew. Here’s good luck to Coach and his Cagers for ’52-’53.

The Maroons are favorea to return their league title again even though losing John Floyd Howell by graduation. Jay Johns with a back injury, and Bill Ward who changed schools. Added to the squad is John Nixon elected captain who returned to school after a year in Murfreesboro and the returning lettermen who include Carey McNeiily, co-captain, John Thorpe, Ed Litkenhous, Martin Rob- erts, Starkey Duncan, Dick Anderson, and Jack Williams.

T” The golf team will be labeled the team to beat in the N.LL., winning the title last spring and not having been beaten in 2 years. Led by Stanley Seat who won the individ- ual N.LL. title, the Big Red golfers racked up a 9-0-1 record. This year the team will have back all the players which include Capt. Stanley Seat, Palmer Temple, Bert Chalfant, and Bobby Calton. The team may be weakened at the offset of the season since Temple may not be able to play because of a basketball injury but with luck he will be in shape to play after the first couple games. The team will not only play their regular league schedule but will go to Chattanooga for the Southern Prep Tournament and the team will compete in the N.LL. individual tournament in which Seat will defend his title. 1951 l ecord M.B.A 4 M.B.A 6 M.B.A 6 M.B.A 3% M.B.A 5 M.B.A 3 M.B.A 5 M.B.A 4 M.B.A 5 M.B.A 6 East 2 Duncan 0 Bellevue 0 DuPont 2 V 2 Ryan 1 Hillsboro 3 Cohn Vz North IV 2 West 1 Peabody 0 Left to Right: Chalfant, Seat, Temple, Calton, McDaniel. fiS’ilma ' : ecoti West Cumberland Hillsboro Bellevue Duncan .

The Maroons are expected to rank high in the N.I.L. standings again this year. The games produced plenty of thrills for the spectators and M.B.A. showed some clutch hitting when they battled Hillsboro and Lipscomb into extra innings and then went on to win. The loss of Graham, McDaniel, Ray, and Ackley by graduation and Harwell by trans- fer will especially weaken the pitching de- partment. The returning lettermen are Somers Ran- dolph, Claude Jarman, Jim Pellettieri, Tom Buford, and Peter Moon. From these boys the whole infield along with the catching position are filled. The only other letterman to return is Martin who plays outfield. Offensively the Maroons should be stronger with the regulars having good hitting punch. Defensively they should be improved. If the pitching comes through the Harding Road gang should be fighting down to the wire for the championship.
