Montgomery Bell Academy was a school before Tennessee was a state, and many of its graduates have played important roles in the history of the area. Traditions of the Old South still linger at M B A. Their influences may be seen in the architecture of the school, its emphasis on the classics, and in the Honor Code. A ' --! I It V ' ■ ■ i:St Every student who enters Montgomery Bell sets certain goals which he hopes to attain during his school career. The students who distinguish themselves as leaders, excellent students, and athletes all contribute to its growth and greatness. f However demanding the work at Montgomery Bell Academy may be, we students find time for amusement. These activities assume a milder form than in times past, perhaps, but there are still sources of fun for everyone. Away from school MBA boys are seldom at a loss for some way to spend their time. bull SMUohteREP big DEDICATION We, the Class of 1963, on behalf of all the students, members of the fac- ulty, and the alumni of Montgomery Bell Academy, dedicate this, the eighteenth edition of The Bell, to Mr, John E. Sloan, chairman of the Board of Trustees for the past 11 years. He has provided the inspirational leadership so necessary to the continued development of Montgomery Bell Academy, In his close association with the school, he has demonstrated to us all the true meaning of the word " Gentleman,” IN RECOGNITION There are a great many biological phenomena which are not calculated to inspire the avid interest of the average high school student. For this reason, a teacher who can so aptly and wittily describe the most prosaic of the phenomena so that the most unenthusiastk pupil listens with a moderate attention, is an asset to any institution. Mr. Pafford is such an asset. In conclusion, we would like to say that each of us remembers Mr. Palford for his wit without flippancy, his kindness without overindulgence, and his knowledge without pretention. All his students wish him success and happiness in his new position. 13 BOARD OF TRUSTEES Mr. John E.

TOTOMOI Glover, Corcoran, Stephens, Smithson. Absent from pic- ture: Daniel and Gambill. Totomoi was organized in 1954 by Dr. R. L. Sager and several outstanding members of the M.B.A. student body. The founders wished to promote high character and Christian development among stu- dents, to increase participation in the activities and traditions of the school, and to honor outstanding students, teachers, and alumni of M.B.A. To be tapped” for Totomoi is the highest honor that may be bestowed on a Montgomery Bell stu- dent. To become a member, a boy must have made an outstanding contribution to M.B.A. in several of the following fields: scholarship, publications, stu- dent government, athletics and organizations. Totomoi for 1962-1963 consists of President Jim Daniel, Vice President Ben Gambill, and members Tommy Corcoran, Johnny Glover, Frank Smithson, and John Stephens. 54 STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council is designed to place as much of the responsibility for the conduct of the school as possible in the hands of the students. The CounciPs main duties are disciplinary; however, the Husband, P., Gambill, B., Stephens, J., Anderson, Smith- son, G., Patrick, Woods, DeMoss, T., Browder, More- head, Stevens, F., Smithson, F., Loftin, Waggoner. Council also discusses improvements and changes on campus. The Student Council consists of the officers of each of the classes that make up the senior school. 55 HONOR COUNCIL First Row: Burge, Lentz, Noel, Ezell, Bowen, Billings. Second Row: Husband, Scarborough, Daniel, Sloan. Third Row: Sobel, Corcoran. One of the features of Montgomery Bell Academy of which the students are proudest, is the Honor System. The Honor System, instigated in 1945, was patterned after that of the University of Virginia. Any sort of dishonorable conduct is considered a violation of the Honor Code. The responsibility for enforcement of the Honor Code rests with the students, and judgment in cases of violation is rendered by the Honor Council. The council is led by President Jim Daniel and consists of four seniors, three juniors, two sophomores, two freshmen, and a junior school representative. All of the members are elected by their classmates. 56 SENIOR HONOR SOCIETY Left Row: Clark, Eadie, Glover, Smithson, Daniel, Sholars, Porter, Oakley, Nicholas.

Sixth Row: Sloan, DeMoss, C., Buist, Williams, W., Porter, B., Uden, Chan dler, Ledbetter, Glover. The purpose of the Hi-Y Club is the promotion of Christian ideals and service to the school, com- munity, and the world. Even under the capable lead- ership of President Jim Daniel, Vice President Frank Smithson, Secretary Treasurer Ben Gambill, and Chaplain Tommy Corcoran, this year’s Hi-Y has had to confine its activities to the school and community, feeling that changing the world is too great a task. In addition to the fabulous Hi-Y basketball teams, the Hi-Y program features periodic dances, an Easter egg hunt for unfortunate children, and a Christmas party for a local nursing home. 59 THE FORENSIC CLUB Berry; Howell, T. ; McKnight; Perry; Evans, R.; Bass; Orman; Browder; Mooty; Elam; Davis, R. ; Wells: Carl; Husband, P. Mosley; Glover; Eadie; DeMoss, C. ; King; Stifler; Bran- don; Dyer; Sobel; Lowenthal; Callis; King, B.; Miller; Shanks; Dixon, W.; Williams; Anderson, E.; Gibson; The Forensic Club, founded in 1955 under the lead- ership of Mrs. Norton Campbell, has long been one of the most active organizations in school. This year the Forensic Club was made up of 50 members, al- though not all were present when the picture was made. Following the guiding purpose of the Forensic Club, to promote forensic interest and skills, the members may participate in such activities as debate, declama- tion, original oratory, extemporaneous speaking, and poetry interpretation. The officers of the Forensic Club are president, Johnny Glover; vice president, Ricki Ricketson; secre- tary-treasurer, Mike Mooty; and program chairman, Lee McKnight. The club has enjoyed a very success- ful year by taking part in various assembly programs and by participation in group discussions at the Christ- mas and Spring banquets. 6o DEBATE TEAM Returning starters, Mike Mooty and Mike Bran- don, negative. Tommy Strohm and Lee McKnight, affirmative, had again this year a splendid season. On the trip to Emory University in Atlanta Mrs. Camp- bell’s quartet, aided by John Stiller, placed second in competition between fifty-six schools represented. This team has now reached the heights of past M.B.A. debate teams. With two members of the team returning, the future looks bright for M.B.A. debaters. First Row: Mooty, Brandon, McKnight, Strohm. Second Row: Howell, T., Carl, Berry, Beauchamp, D. » Ml 11 6i SONS OF M B. A. ALUMNI Kly Howell, B., Pearson, Patrick, Shillinglaw, Williams, W., Burge, Rodgers, Sanders. A gratifying aspect of the tradition is the number of sons who follow their fathers as students here. This is one of the many facets of Montgomery Bell Academy in which its heritage is manifested. THE GLEE CLUB Although the musical ability of this year’s Glee Club is not all that it might be, the enjoyment that the members derive from the club’s activities is be- yond measure. Twice each week the Glee Club meets, sometimes to sing, sometimes to listen to recordings of great artists.

The difference lies in the fact that The Bell Ringer strives to give a progressive picture of life at M.B.A., that is, to portray the events during shorter periods of time. The Bell Ringer has come out four times this year, and each issue has been an excellent one — thanks largely to the imaginative di- rection of Bill Oakley.

A. 13-GLENCLIFF 13 A determined Big Red team opened its season September 8th at Andrews Field against GlenclifT, a team that had humiliated the Maroons the two previous years. The game ended in a tie, but M.B.A. used the game as a springboard to its finest season since 1957. The first period was scoreless but in the second quarter Mike Bush s cored for Glencliff on a two yard run. Big John Stephens countered with a fifty-five yard run, but M.B.A. was stopped short of a score. Late in the half senior quarterback, Jim Uden, was carried to the sidelines with a serious knee injury and was lost for the season. The first half ended with the Big Red down six to zero. In the second half the Maroons found new life. In the third quarter the amazing Stephens, who ended the night by gaining 122 yards, caught a pass from quarterback, Tom Scarborough, that evened the score. In the fourth period Glencliff staged a mara- thon eight minute drive that ended with a scoring pass from the twenty-six yard line. The extra point was good and apparently the Colts had a thirteen to six victory. But Glencliff began celebrating too soon. Tom Scarborough directed the Maroons on a scoring drive of 71 yards. With 88 seconds left on the clock Ed Anderson scored from eight yards out and Stephens ran for the all-important extra point. John Stephens, Ed Anderson and Tom Scarborough were outstanding in the backfield, and no Colt back had a run of over ten yards against the Maroon defense, led by Ben Gambill, Jim Daniel, Phil Husband, and Bill Vaughan. M. B. A. 25-DONELSON 0 On September 15, De Thompson, junior fullback, destroyed Donelson before 4,000 people at the Donelson field. Gaining ninety-two yards, De scored thirteen points to lead his teammates to a twenty-five to zero victory. The first Big Red score came in the second quarter after Tupper Morehead recovered a Don fumble. A forty-three yard drive was capped by Thompson’s six yard run. Later in the first half, Ben Gambill intercepted a pass and went to Donelson’s 26 yard line. Runs by Thompson and Weaver put the ball on the one and Scarborough carried it across from there. At halftime M.B.A. had a hard-earned twelve to zero lead. Donelson seemed to wither in the second half. A bruising Maroon defense held the Dons to nine yards rushing and no first downs in the second half. Led by Gambill and Weaver, the defense caused four Don fumbles and one intercepted pass. The M.B.A. offense, though not as sharp as in the opening game, was able to capitalize effectively on these mistakes. De Thompson scored again in the third quarter, this time from seven yards out. A fumble recovery by Hunter Husband resulted in the fourth Maroon score. This tally was made by senior Lunny Hollins from the seven yard line. The Big Red offense looked extremely ragged in this game, but the Maroons carried off the victory because of their willingness to hit — a very encouraging sign. M. B. A. 53-GALLATIN 0 M.B.A. had a field day on September 22 against the Gallatin team as the Maroons ran up a fifty-three point total. Everyone was in on the act as G)ach Owen used nine backs in this track meet. Sam Herbert was the leading ground gainer with ninety-two yards as Gallatin folded after one determined stand. The Green Wave held the Maroons on M.B.A.’s first offensive try, and Herbert was sent in to punt. Herbert got a bad snap from the center and had to run for his life. After rounding the right end, Herbert was all alone as the Big Red linemen mowed down the mighty Green Wave. Sixty yards later, Sam trotted into the end zone. After this demoralizing run, the game belonged to the Maroons. Phil Husband and Pat Woods tallied twice while Tom Scarborough, Ed Anderson, and Jim Ezell all scored once. Lloyd McAdams kicked five extra points through the uprights. After this convincing victory, the mighty Maroons rose to the number six place in the state ratings. M. B, A. 7-RYAN 6 Picked by most people to defeat Ryan on September 28 , was in for a rude shock as the two teams traveled to the North High Stadium. The Big Red gave the Panthers a lesson in pigskin play as the Maroons took the opening kickoff and immediately marched to a score. Led by Hunter Husband and Tom X eaver, the Maroons methodically crammed the ball down the defenders throats. In fourteen plays M.B.A. drove seventy-one yards and the Maroon supporters went wild as Hunter Husband scored from the nineteen yard line. McAdams converted and the extra point proved to be the winning margin. From this point the game turned into a defensive struggle. A tough Maroon defense led by line backer Ben Gambill stopped the Panthers at the Maroon eight yard-line, near the end of the first half. Husband, Billings, and Mulligan again and again stopped the Ryan passing attack by smothering Mondelli in the backfield. In the final period Ryan finally scored with Roger Leaver bulling over for the tally. The kick was wide to the left and M.B.A. led seven to six. The Maroons loosened their defenses and late in the game Hunter Husband intercepted a pass which ended Ryan’s chances. In a tough defensive game which saw Ryan have only four runs of over seven yards. HOME DOWN M. B. A. 19-MADISON 20 On October 5, M.B.A. traveled to Madison High, only to have the roof cave in. Oflf t o its best season since 1956, the Maroons were on top of the N.I.L. and rated sixth in the state when the game started. After a 20 to 19 defeat, a dejected Maroon team was faced with a long, unhappy bus ride home. The Madison offense led by Butch Cartwright shattered the Maroon dreams of an N.I.L. championship. Cartwright scored nineteen points for the Rams on touchdowns and added the extra point after the last touchdown to give the Rams the victory. De Thompson scored in the second quarter for the Big Red but later was lost with a broken hand. In the third quarter Hunter Husband scored, and M.B.A. was behind by one point. The Rams were forced to punt, and John Stephens fielded the ball on his own 36 yard line. Fighting and running like a true champion, Stephens dashed for a touchdown and gave M.B.A. a 19 to 13 lead. Madison was not to be denied, and Cart- wright scored seven more points to give the victory to Madison. Even in defeat, Stephens was brilliant gaining 22 yards in four carries; catching three passes for fifty-six yards and scoring six points. Tom Scarborough hit seven for nine passes for 143 yards and Lunny Hollins gained 46 yards in nine carries, but M.B.A. had lost its first game of the season. M. B. A. 13-SPRINGFIELD 20 Montgomery Bell Academy lost its second game of the season to Springfield in a bruising battle on October 14. The Maroons were physically overwhelmed by the larger Yellow- Jackets. M.B.A. showed its determination by scoring immediately after the opening kickoff. The Maroons drove 64 yards for seven points before Springfield had touched the ball. In the second period the Springfield might was shown as they raced to a 14-7 lead. The first score came after a Maroon fumble at their own thirteen, and the second score as a result of a hobbled punt at the Maroon 18. After intermission the Yellow- Jackets scored on a 96 yard drive that capped the scoring for the night. M.B.A. threatened again but had a pass intercepted near the end of the game. Stephens, the ace halfback, hurt his knee, and Ben Gambill received a head injury. The wounded Maroons traveled home to ready themselves for the invading Bluejays of West End High School. 87 M. B. A. 13-WEST 0 West High, winner of six straight games, ran into more than they wanted on Octo- ber 20 when they journeyed to Frank Andrews Field. The seventh ranked Maroons handed the Blue] ays their first defeat by a score of 13-0. The Big Red came out ready for a tough game and got just that from a scrappy West team. Montgomery Bell scored early on a long pass to Phil Husband, but the score was nullified by a holding penalty. In the second period the Maroons started a 23 yard drive which was climaxed by a one yard plunge by Hunter Husband. Lunny Hollins played an important part in this drive, picking up twenty-four yards running and catching a nineteen yard pass. The first half ended with the Big Red ahead 6-0. In the first fifteen minutes of the game the Blue jays ran only four plays. The Big Red outgained West two to one in the opening half and clearly held the upper hand. But after the halftime homecoming cere- monies, West came out an inspired team. West outgained the Maroons the second half and almost played M.B.A. off its feet. However, the Big Red defense never allowed West inside the Maroon twenty. Late in the fourth quarter Lunny Hollins again sparked a Maroon drive and scored the second touchdown of the game. For the game Hollins gained 69 yards in fourteen carries, Ed Anderson got 56 in twelve attempts, and reliable John Stephens ran for 33 yards in 7 tries. The Maroon defense was led by head-hunting Ben Gambill, Phil Husband, Fred Billings and Tupper More- head. M. B. A. 21-LITTON 13 The seventh ranked Maroons emerged with a hard-earned victory on October 26 when they faced the Litton Lions. M.B.A. dealt Litton its first loss in Big Eight play. Litton’s highly- touted ' Tack of the Week,” Jimmy Cliff, scored the first touchdown and gave Litton a 6-0 lead. Cliff, who ran the ball only three times, was forced from the game with a sprained ankle. His scoring play came with 1:12 minutes left in the first half. On the ensuing kickoff M.B.A. moved the ball to its 40 yard line. On the first play Tom Scarborough fumbled and Tom Weaver picked the ball up on the 37 yard line. Sixty-three yards later Weaver crossed the goal-line for the Maroon score. Only seven seconds showed on the clock as the sophomore pushed across the big score. Hunter Husband then lugged the ball in for a 7-6 halftime lead. The second half was all M.B.A. After a Litton touchdown late in the third quarter, Scarborough led in Maroons to a score by heaving a 23 yard pass to Bill Vaughan. Hollins ran for the extra point and Montgomery Bell was ahead to stay. With 1:33 minutes left in the game, M.B.A. iced the victory as Hollins scored on a six yard run. McAdams converted and the score stood 21-13. For the night Scarborough gained eighty-six yards in seven carries; Weaver seventy-five in four, and Hollins fifty-eight in fifteen. v ‘fr- ■ ■ ' ; . ir ' ' V ■ ■ r-T’-, M. B. A. 46-FRANKLIN 0 The winless Rebels of Franklin kept on losing as they faced the Maroons at Frank Andrews Field on November 2. The Big Red amassed over four hundred yards total offense as they methodically slaughtered the Rebels. M.B.A. encountered trouble from Franklin only in the scoreless first period. Then the Maroons broke loose for an awesome forty-six points in the last three periods. Scarborough tallied first on a one yard plunge with Anderson running for the extra point. Before the half Scarborough threw a 36 yard pass to Bill Vaughan to give M.B.A. a 13-0 halftime lead. After the half Maroon scoring was fast and furious. Weaver scored twice and Vaughan once in the third quarter. With the Rebel defense completely destroyed the Big Red subs carried on in the fourth quarter. Halfback Pat Woods and quarterback Gordon Smith both scored for the Maroons. These tallies closed out the Maroon scoring as M.B.A. once again showed its offensive ability. |;V - ..y . ' .yi ' .- t ' . • i M. B. A. 33-HILLSBORO 24 Rain postponed the Friday night game with arch-rival Hillsboro until Saturday after- noon, November 10. Playing its first day game since 1956 in the Clinic Bowl, Montgomery Bell Academy rocked the Hillsboro Burros for its seventh victory of the year. M.B.A. scored first as Ed Anderson plunged across from the two. John Stephens ran for the extra point. Later Stephens came back to score on a five yard run to give the Maroons a 13-6 halftime lead. Hillsboro scored on a pass from Gaston to Broderick with fifty-six seconds remaining in the half. In the third quarter the Maroons rolled for twenty points to build up a lead that Hills- boro could not overtake. Lunny Hollins scored on a sixty-three yard jaunt and Tom Scarborough threw touchdown aerials to Phil Husband and Hunter Husband. Bobby Bernard scored for the Burros as the third quarter ended. The fourth stanza of the game belonged to Hillsboro as Doug Moulton scored on runs of two yards and five yards. The M.B.A. offense again displayed its awesome power by rolling for three hundred fifty yards in total offense. But the defense of the Maroons sagged as Hillsboro scored more against the Big Red than any other team this year. All in all, however, it was as lovely a day for the Maroons as it was for the shirt sleeved crowd. 9 M. B. A. 28-COLUMBIA 6 Going to its first bowl game since 1956, the Maroons prepared to meet Columbia in Franklin’s Rebel Bowl. On November 16, the Maroons showed their power both offensively and defensively as they crushed Columbia 28-6. M.B.A. scored only once in the first half and had a scant 7-6 halftime lead. This score remained until late in the third quarter when the Maroons exploded for a touchdown. Led by John Stephens and Tom Scarborough, the Maroons drove eighty- eight yards in seven plays as Scarborough carried the ball across. Early in the fourth quarter Stephens scored on a two yard run and later Phil Husband scored on a 31 yard pass from Scarborough. The Maroon defense, led by Ben Gambill, Phil Husband, and Jim Daniel, who inter- cepted a pass in the fourth quarter, held Columbia to thirteen yards rushing the first half and forty-one for the game. In their finest game the Maroon defenders held Co- lumbia to an average gain of one yard per play. The Maroon offense, which won the N.I.L. scoring championship, rolled up 350 yards from scrimmage. John Stephens closed out a brilliant career by gaining 111 yards in nine carries and Scarborough ended his season by scoring twice and gaining eighty yards in nine carries. The Big Red finished its season with an 8-2-1 record and ranked eighteenth in the state at the season’s end. 9X JOHN STEPHENS Co-Captain BANQUET AWARD WINNERS— Bill Vaughan, Best Blocker; Tom Scar- borough, Most Spirit and Improvement; Ben Gambill, 70 Yard Club and Best Tackier.

Coach Owen. This year’s basketball team got an exceptionally late start due to a football season extended by the Rebel Bowl. Nevertheless, the team was picked to be a contender in the 18th District, the tougher of the two districts that comprise the N.LL. However, the Big Red started with a loss to Cohn. As the 31-28 score would indicate, the game was a defensive contest and the loss was disappointing. The team showed the tenacious defense that has become an M.B.A. trademark. The team’s shooting, unfor- tunately, left a good deal to be desired. In the second contest of the season, M.B.A. met the Panthers of Ryan, eventual N.LL. champions, in the tiny Ryan gymnasium. The Maroons battled all the way, only to be on the short end of a 45-44 count. The score proved to be a foretaste of things to come. The Big Red lost its next three games by margins of 1, 3, and 4 points. In this series of games Gambill and Reed topped the Maroon scoring, with occa- sional bursts by McAdams. M.B.A.’s first win came against North. In this case, when it rained it poured, and The Big Red crushed the Yankees 73-20. Gambill and Scarborough led the way in a well balanced attack that handed North their most decisive defeat of the year. 99 From then the road was mostly uphill until nament time. The Big Red dropped several close ones and lost decisively to Clarksville rating system’s number one team in the state, ever, the team did manage to build up a modest win- ning streak, defeating T.P.S. and Hume Fogg. Having finished the season on a somewhat encour- aging note, the Maroons entered the 18 th District Tournament and was matched against a favored Cohn team. lOO For perhaps the first time, the student body turned out in force and the team reacted by beating the Black Knights soundly, 49-39. The win was a result of a torrid third quarter in which Lloyd McAdams alone scored ten points. The Big Red then dropped a game to a fine Howard team, thus ending the season. The most striking aspect of the season was the repeated d isappointment of losing close games. Most of the team’s difficulties derived from shooting in- accuracy. Ben Gambill was the leading scorer, fol- lowed by Tom Scarborough. Lloyd McAdams’ re- bounding and the bustling play of Jim Daniel also were important to the Big Red. The play of Billy Gourley, Frank Bass, ferocious rebounder Phil Hus- band, Lee Noel, Hunter Husband, and Steve Traut- man was encouraging and since most of these boys return next year, the outlook for the future appears bright. loa 1 First Row: Olson, Parrish, Weaver, Anderson, Woods, Harris.

As those familiar with the sport can testify, it takes several years to build a truly powerful wrestling pro- gram. M.B.A. has had wrestling for four years. All of which have been filled with impatient and frus- trated anticipation. We feel that wrestling has finally come into its own this year. The team has progressed at a miracvilous rate this season — from a trouncing by B.G.A. to a 27-25 victory over the same team. In the first match against B.G.A., only Paul Sloan and Frederick Billings came away with regular wins, although M.B.A. swept the exhibition matches. The second match, against the Blind School, which has recently defeated highly rated S.M.A., the Big Grapplers showed some improvement. Fred Billings and Tupper Morehead won handily, while First Row, Left to Right: Harwell, Bedford, Ezell, Elam, R., Elam, D., Billings, J. Second Row: Wilson, Manager; Sholars, Sloan, Corcoran, Thompson, Morehead, Billings, F., Davis, Manager. Absent from Picture: Coaches Smith and Sullivan. Wrestlers Evans, R., Branum, Sobel, Wells, Browder, and Smithson. Paul Sloan fought to a draw, and De lost a close match to a fine wrestler. On the first week end in February the wrestling team traveled to the Sewanee mountain to contend with St. Andrew’s and S.M.A. Although both op- ponents had several B teamers wrestling, it is by no means true that M.B.A. was wrestling an inferior group, as the 27-22 and 29-27 losses would indicate. The high point of the season was a 27-25 victory over the same B.G.A. team that had previously mauled the Big Red. By the close of the season, M.B.A. had begun to realize its full potential. Such boys as Sloan, Thomp- son, Billings, and Morehead, had been consistently tough and Sholars, Evans, Smithson, Clifton, and Sobel had come along to give the team strength in the heavier division. Even more heartening was the development in the lower weights. Had not Carlisle been injured and all juniors had to take College Boards, M.B.A. could have made a fine showing in the State T ournament. As it was, the team finished third in its class. 107 RIFLE TEAM Under the leadership of Marine Sergeant Cox, the rifle team treks the Vanderbilt ranges several times each week for arduous afternoons of shooting. These industrious and gentle boys learn to shoot from four positions: kneeling, standing, sitting, and prone. In short, they become capable of bagging an enemy at almost any distance from any position. Unfortunately, the meets are held on Saturdays, and even more unfortunately, most of M.B.A.’s meets are scheduled for 7:30 in the morning. They enjoy shooting and derive great pleasure from the activities of the team. First Row, Left to Right: Farrell, McGavock, Beauchamp, Benson, Bradley. Second Row: Sgt. Cox, Sholars, Clark, Wallace, McKnight, King. TRACK The track team got ojff to perhaps its best start in years, having won three meets while losing none. In the first meet, the Big Red outdistanced B.G.A. by twenty points. In the next meet, against Hillsboro and Ryan, M.B.A. came out on top by over twenty points. In the third meet, the team performed a rare feat, not only defeating T.P.S. on its own track, but by a 12 Yz point margin. The keynote of the team’s success is its solidarity. There are few potential state champions on the squad, and the relay teams may not be of the calibre of some in the past, but the team has extraordinary balance. Hunter Husband and Ronnie Jackson run the 100 and 220, Frederick Billings is one of the states’ finer 440 men, and De Thompson is an excellent half- miler, and Paul Sloan is ably backed up by David Dilley in the mile. Of course, John Stephens is a district, regional, and even state threat. Bobby Howell is another fine hurdler. Jim Daniel, Tom Scarborough, Bill Geny and oth- ers comprise the relay teams, and many of the earlier mentioned runners participate in these events. In the field events, balance is again the most evident feature. Weight men Phil Husband, Clifton -Sobel, and Butch Hoover put the shot, and Lloyd McAdams has ably filled the void left by Russ Dilley in the discus. High jumpers Tommy Corcoran and Owsley Manier and broad jumpers Allen Lentz and Tom Weaver round out the squad. At this writing the team seems to have an excellent chance of giving perpetual champion East a fight in the Banner Relays.

At present the team sports only a 3-3 record, but it has beaten such teams as Franklin, unbeaten prior to the M.B.A. game, and B.G.A., while losing to, among others, the Vanderbilt fresh- men. The fine infield is composed of co-captains Ben Gambill and David Nicholas at first and second bases, Leslie Bedford at short stop and Tommy Lucas at third. Skeeter Graves handles the catching chores; Gordon Smith, Paul Welles, and Tommy Forehand handle the pitching assignments and play in the outfield when not on the mound. The remaining outfield duties are covered by David Hyatt and Frank Smith- son. Gambill and Lucas provide the power hitting, while Nicholas, Bedford, and Smithson the steady singles. TENNIS Coach Rule’s tennis players have won the N.I.L. tennis championship seven- teen of the past eighteen years, and this year’s team promises to be another of championship quality. Frank Bass, only a junior, plays No. 1 singles, and is followed by seniors Johnny Reed, Johnny Glover, and Don Crichton, fresh- man Greer Cummings and Dent Shillinglaw, and eighth grader Buzzy Beau- champ. The top doubles team is composed of Reed and Steve Xrautman, who won the T.S.S.A.A. doubles in their division last year. With its mixture of veterans and newcomers, this year’s tennis team promises to make a good showing at the upcoming Mid-South Tournament in Chattanooga and for the entire spring.

This year’s golf team has beaten Father Ryan High School, Overton, and West, but it has lost to Lipscomb and Peabody. At the present writing the golf team is in third place in its division. The Hills- boro and Hillwood matches remaining, there is still a good chance for the M.B.A. team to win the cham- pionship. The team, composed of Mac Clayton, Chip Baker, Jobo Ledbetter, Mike Brandon, Billy Gourley, Jumbo Cook, and John Hutton, is again under the coaching influence of Dr. Sager. 117 “As usual, Jobo, that was truly pitiful!” Dudley Jarman Fort-Sharp, IV Administrative view of M.B.A. SLAuohteREP big 1?
