Almost since the time of the city’s founding, Mont- gomery Bell Academy or its honored ancestors formed a part of the community’s educational and cultural life. From — History of Montgomery Bell Academy by James C. Rule In 1785 William Polk and James Robertson, who were sent as delegates from the frontier settlement of Nashville, influenced the General Assembly of North Caro- lina to pass an Act which authorized the charter for an academy of learning to be located in the Nashville community. So it was that Davidson Academy was established on December 27, 1785, with the stated purpose of providing educational opportunities for the youth of the area. From this beginning evolved the present day Montgomery Bell Academy. Thus, although our school did not exist as we know it now until 1867, the spirit and influence of MBA has been spread through- out Nashville almost since the city’s founding. Many of Nashville’s prominent busi- nessmen, lawyers, doctors, political leaders, and educators — both past and present — graduated from Montgomery Bell. Today, as a preparatory school for boys, the Academy continues to furnish many colleges, both local and national, with an abundant supply of well-trained students. All this MBA contributes to Nashville: tradition, civic leaders, and outstanding stu- dents. What does Nashville offer in return? Nashville is the sphere of life — the world of an MBA boy. Here he makes his first friends; he learns more and more about people — Nashville people. He meets life’s first challenges in our city: his first fight, his first time to be lost, his first athletic contest, his first dance, his first exam. He grows and matures in many ways through his Nashville experiences. In general, these experiences fall into three major categories — the physical, mental, and spiritual. Nashville provides an excellent background for physical de- V ■ ' ' 1 velopment. Our future MBA boy can start early in athletic programs such as Knot- hole and Little League baseball and Gray-Y football. Furthermore, when a boy becomes of high school age, the city provides him with great opportunities for intra- city athletic competition. MBA boys have often excelled in city-wide football, bas- ketball, and tennis — as well as in other sports. However, Nashville is not only rich in sports programs but also well-equipped to train a boy mentally. Our city is known as the educational center of the South. Here are located a large number of accredited colleges and universities, as well as many high schools. MBA is at the top of this pyramid as a college preparatory school. An MBA boy, while already having received a good scholastic foundation, has the opportunity to receive a very fine college education right here in “The Athens of the South.” Finally, Nashville provides a wonderful opportunity for spiritual growth. Many of the churches have been established since the city’s founding. From the old row on Church Street, our chapels, cathedrals, and synagogues have spread out all over Metropolitan Nashville. Sunday becomes a day of worship for the MBA boy as he attends his favorite church. This experience is reinforced during the week in chapel devotionals and talks. Thus we see that Nashville provides the environ- ment necessary to prepare a boy for life. Nashville and Montgomery Bell Academy combine this excellent background into an education that aids our MBA boy to grasp the higher goals of life. His broad experience leads him to a new perspective on his activities. Instead of reaching selfishly, he sets his eyes upon the ideals of . . . 3 MBA is a school which has, throughout its en- tire history, stood for excellence in academic achievement. The school’s faculty, student body, and tradition join to form the complex catalyst which motivates students to learn as they grow from youth to manhood. MBA’s excellence as a preparatory school is easily visible in the outstand- ing records of its graduates. The MBA boy is, above all, a student. k k The academic life does not, however, occupy all a student’s time. MBA is concerned with de- veloping well-rounded boys, and this concern is manifested in the diverse opportunities for club participation which are offered to every student. Every boy is urged, though not required, to gain as many experiences as possible from contact with different club goals. Participation in campus or- ganizations, then, enlarges the scope of each in- dividual participant; this same participation, more- over, is a vital factor in the process of synthesis which unites some four hundred boys of varying background into a single, highly spirited student body. Within a student’s complex life of books, classes, and exams; there must be time for a little relaxa- tion. Striving for individual excellence during the week, the MBA boy takes time on the weekend to enjoy the companionship of friends from MBA and other neighboring schools. The school realizes that a boy matures not just through knowledge gained from books, but also from the varied ex- periences of six years of friendly relationships. These relations, then, are a most important part of MBA life. Athletics is an integral part of MBA life. Re- quired of every student, athletic participation is a means to the desired end, that of obtaining the well-rounded boy. The desire to win is instilled in every competing athlete, but victory is never allowed to take precedence over sportsmanship. Carrying value far beyond that of physical de- velopment, athletics at MBA develops a boy’s honor, int egrity, and ability to accept both victory and defeat. ■vs A W t I I io THE BELL PRESENTED BY THE STUDENT BODY OF MONTGOMERY BELL ACADEMY NASHVILLE TENNESSEE 1965 Editor — Eugene B. Shanks, Jr. Business Manager —Wynn L. Dixon, Jr. A school is only as strong as its faculty; and by this measure, MBA is strong indeed. MBA’s faculty members guide, instruct, and mature the student body into a unified and academically eager whole. ADMINISTRATION AND FACULTY Each graduating senior reflects the thought, care, and devotion of the molding hands of the MBA faculty and staff. The relationship between student and teacher is a close one, and of great worth. DEDICATED TO MR. JAMES C. RULE It is with deep respect and genuine appreciation that the staff of the 1965 Bell dedicates this publication to a man who has given his life to the instruction and enrichment of the lives of MBA boys. With his abundant knowledge, he has made mathematics an invaluable part of our lives; with his witty comments and good humor, he has made the process of learning enjoyable; with his skillful coaching, he has made tennis an institution of victory at MBA. Realizing that we can repay him only in a small way for the numerous contributions he has made to MBA, we humbly dedicate this annual to a truly outstanding man, Mr. James C. Rule. They form the governing body of our school. THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES Chairman of the Board Vice-Chairman of the Board Secretary T reasurer Ex-Officio Mr. John E. Sloan Mr. Stirton Oman Mr. Ferriss C.

Almost always found on the MBA campus, he is a teacher, counsellor, administrator, laborer, and, above all, a man of integrity. Without Mr. Carter, MBA could not easily maintain its fine reputation.

Others use their special talents to manage our school Today the competition for acceptance into top colleges ancl universities is more strenuous than ever before. It is no longer sufficient to obtain merely an average education, and it is not the school’s desire to offer that sort of education. Consisting of students ranging from the seventh to the twelfth grade, M.B.A. is fast becoming recognized as one of the top preparatory schools in the South. The school’s well-organized system of offers diversity in opportunities for scholastic and individual achievement.

The purpose of a preparatory school is more than to make scholars; it is to make men. MBA accepts the chal- lenge of molding young boys into young men, men capable of facing the challenges of four years of college, and many more years of life. Montgomery Bell develops each student academically, to be sure ; but more importantly, the school’s student body develops within itself ORGANIZATIONS which foster the diverse ideals of: INCENTIVE ACHIEVEMENT RESPONSIBILITY HONOR SERVICE SPIRIT FLUENCY TENACITY FELLOWSHIP ART 6x First Row: Ed Anderson, Secretary-Treasurer; Gene Shanks, Rick Evans, Vice-President. Second Row: John Williams, Pat Patrick, Lee Noel, President; Frank Stevens. TOTOMOI Initiation into this honorary fraternity is the ultimate honor that a boy may receive at MBA. Organized in 1954 by Dr. R. L. Sager and sev- eral outstanding members of the student body, Totomoi recognizes the excellence of those boys who have made outstanding contributions to the school during their years at MBA. To attain mem- bership in Totomoi, a boy must have made out- sta nding achievements in at least three of the following five fields: scholarship, athletics, student government, organizations, and publications. The 1965 Bell respectfully submits its congratulations to Lee Noel, this year’s president, and the other members for 1964-1965. 6 4 Senior Honor Society — First Row: J. Branum, Nicholson, G.

HONOR SOCIETIES The National Junior and Senior Honor Socie- ties exist for the purpose of recognizing academic achievement among high school students through- out the country. To acquire membership, a stu- dent must maintain the required average for three consecutive semesters. MBA can be justifiably proud of the large percentage of its students who have earned membership in these Honor Societies. Junior Honor Society — Left to Right: B. Jones, Reed, Beauchamp, Lochte. STUDENT COUNCIL MBA is not a school of ordinary boys. It is, rather, a school of capable young men willing to accept the responsibility of governing themselves. This sense of democratic responsibility is mani- fested in the school’s Student Council, an organi- zation composed of the class officers of each of the four high school classes. The Council’s purpose is to aid the faculty in the administration of school policy and to make recommendations to the fac- ulty concerning disciplinary problems. In the last several years, the Student Council has assumed more and more of the responsibility for the direc- tion of the school. The success of student govern- ment at MBA is both a source of great pride to the student body and an indication of its maturity. First Row: Bradley, Bracewell, Patrick, F. Stevens, Bra- den, Brown.

HONOR COUNCIL Honor is an intangible goal; the Honor Council is a most tangible reality. Created by the student body itself in 1945, the Honor Council consists of a total of twelve representatives from the six grades. The Honor Council’s purpose is to try infractions of the school’s Honor Code and to recommend disciplinary action against any of- fenders. It is, moreover, the Honor Council’s duty to promote, both by decision and by conduct, a strong sense of honor among a student body which has, of its own accord, pledged to neither “lie, cheat, nor steal.” Service Club Members — First Row: R.

Anderson, Strayhorn, Parrish. SERVICE CLUB Service to the school is the visible result of loy- alty and charity. The Service Club, led by Mr. Robert Gentry, is a selective organization which both serves the school and distinguishes those of high character and scholastic proficiency. The Service Club aids the school with activities such as taking up tickets at basketball games, ushering, and the like. The club’s intent and purpose is to serve and improve the school as a whole by the accomplishment of necessary chores. During the Christmas season, the club organized a canned food drive for the poor and, in so doing, served the student body by giving them the opportunity to serve others.

Big Red Club Officers — Left to Right: Tom Howell, His- torian; Frank Stevens, Vice-President; Brugh Reynolds, President; Greer Carlisle, Sergeant at Arms; Gene Shanks, Secretary-T reasurer. BIG RED CLUB School spirit is the intangible part of a school which demonstrates its enthusiasm or lack of en- thusiasm about the athletic endeavors of its stu- dents. Founded only last year by Mr. Anthony Edmonds and its current president, Brugh Rey- nolds, the Big Red Club has tried successfully to boost this school spirit and has already accom- plished enough to establish itself as a major insti- tution at MBA. The club has engaged in such activities as ushering, selling shakers and refresh- ments at football games, and furnishing rides to all away games during the football season. In 1964 the Big Red Club donated a new stadium speaker system to the school and this year pre- sented the school with a complete scrapbook of the 1963 and 1964 football seasons. After receiving such a fine beginning under the capable leader- ship of Brugh and the other officers, this club will certainly continue to create an unconquerable spirit of victory among the MBA student body. 69 Forensic Club Members — First Row: Elam, Hughey, Nicholson, Tcpper, B.

It is the purpose of the Forensic Club to aid the student in giving fluent expression to his thoughts. Containing members of the sophomore, junior, and senior classes, the Forensic Club fosters interest in interscholastic competition in the fields of original oratory, poetry and dramatic interpretation, humorous reading, and extemporaneous speaking. Under the leader- ship of Mrs. Norton Campbell, the Forensic Club has produced consistently excellent speakers and has sponsored several highly successful forensic tournaments.

Second Row: B. Barton, Terry, T. Ednie, Reed, Nicholson, Duncan, Strayhorn. DEBATE A very important part of forensic activities on the Hill is centralized in debating. Interscholastic debate is a contest whose rewards go to the logical, the informed, and the tenacious. This year’s de- bate team has consisted almost entirely of inexpe- rienced but eager debaters. The pros and cons of the chosen question, “Resolved, That nuclear weapons should be controlled by an international organization,” were argued by such able speakers as Burton Rice, Joe Strayhorn, Alex Nicholson, George Duncan, and Bill Terry. The novice teams improved consistently throughout the year; and, with the aid of extemporaneous speakers John Wil- liams and Bill Cockrill, they competed in major tournaments with a high degree of success. Due in large part to the excellent coaching of Mrs. Nor- ton Campbell, this year’s successes have reflected much honor upon the school. 7 1 HI-Y CLUB Perhaps no other club at MBA better creates unity within the student body than the Hi-Y Club. Under President Clifton Sobel, the Hi-Y Club has engaged in many activities this year, including two parties for underprivileged children, the Youth in Government program, the Man of the Year pro- gram, and the indefatigable Hi-Y basketball teams. Consisting of sophomores, juniors, and seniors, the Hi-Y Club draws the student body closer to- gether behind the common goals of Christian fel- lowship and Christian service.

PLAYERS The MBA Players is the school’s dramatics club, an organization which transmutes vague artistic desires into highly entertaining theatrical perform- ances. Directed by Mr. James Poston, the MBA Players have endeavored to foster, through enter- tainment, an interest within the student body for dramatic expression. This year the Players left the serious vein of their last two productions. (The Taming of the Shrew and Our Town) to attempt the musical comedy Bye , Bye Birdie. The group, though amateur in nature, has strived for and attained nearly professional excellence in its performances. To become a Player, a student must take a satisfactory part in at least one play a year, as an actor, stage hand, or publicity agent. This relativelv new organ of MBA activity has grown rapidly in both size and enthusiasm; and, with the able leadership of Mr. Poston and students such as this year’s president, Jay Branum, the group is bound to continue in this growth. 73 Sports Staff — First Row: Bailey, Smithson, T.

The paper has grown out of its image as a humor column and has become a place for serious edi- torial comment and dignified news. The humor, however, has not been forgotten; it has just been balanced by the more serious news. Compiled by the mass efforts of a large staff and organized by Frank and Business Manager John Williams, each issue of the paper is distributed to MBA’s alumni as well as to the student body. The paper has become, for many, the image of a school which is theirs. Features Staff — First Row: Bailey, Scoville, Apffel, Baker, DiSilvestro, Nicholson.

It is, rather, a group of separate and personal entities united behind the school’s common goals. There is always a drive for individual achievement, friendship, and social relaxation. MBA nurtures these FEATURES of school life which tie the student body together into a network of interrelated cells.

NATIONAL MERIT SCHOLARSHIP FINALISTS VALEDICTORIAN GENE SHANKS SALUTATORIAN RICK EVANS The MBA boy is taught to excel, but he is also taught to strive for this excellence with honor. MBA therefore stresses sportsmanship as each of its many competing squads seek the title ol champion. At MBA every boy is required to participate in some sport. It is, perhaps this mass participation in ATHLETICS which causes the student body’s pride in athletic prowess. Long hours of practice materialize into well-organized, spirited, and highly-successful team efforts. Victory is al- ways the goal, but victory with honor. VARSITY FOOTBALL The Montgomery Bell Academy Big Red of 1964 rolled to perhaps the greatest season in many years. The Big Red completed the season with a highly successful 8-2-0 record. The season opened with a smashing 57-0 victory over Donelson. Led by Hunter Husband, Lee Noel, and Tom Weaver, the Big Red continued its winning ways by handily defeating Overton. Rated Number One in the state, the Big Red next faced highly rated Father Ryan in a great defensive show. Tom Lucas, Howell Warner, and Ed Anderson led the Big Red defense, which held Ryan to just 21 yards rushing. This victory was followed by fine victories over Madison and Springfield. Led by Rick Evans, Pat Woods and Mike Howard, the Big Red remained Number One in the state. After a loss to Glencliff, the Big Red handily defeated Litton and Stratford. The climax of the season came in a smashing 56-6 defeat over archrival Plillsboro. Pat Woods opened the game with a spectacular 87-yard kick- off return. After this Hillsboro was never in the game. A final loss to highly rated Murfreesboro in the Tobacco Bowl could not cloud this wonderful season. Thus, the great incentive, leadership and deter- mination displayed by this team resulted in a series of fine victories. Throughout the year, the Big Red displayed tremendous ability and proved to be true champions. Thus Montgomery Bell Academy, led by a fine group of athletes, completed a highly successful season and prepared for what will cer- tainly be another fine season next year. Seated: Capt.

All-City: Hunter Husband and Lee Noel Ridley picks up yardage RICK EVANS MBA 57 On September 11, MBA broke its opening-game jinx in mighty fashion by routing the Donelson Dons 57-0. After receiving the opening kickoff, the Big Red drove from its own 35 in five plays to a touchdown with Hunter Husband carrying it over from the 16. In addition to rolling up 522 yards net offense, the Big Red defense held the Dons to 96 yards rushing. Halfback Tom Weaver dazzled the crowd with touchdown runs of 10, 28, and 80 yards. Meanwhile, Hunter Husband and Lee Noel added two touchdowns each. In addition, Woodie Hus- band and John Bracewell piled over for one apiece. Finally, several sophomores, led by Bill Blair, showed fine promise for the future. DONELSON 0 9 6 MBA OVERTON Rated No. 1 in the Litratings and a 24-point choice prior to kickoff, the Big Red had their hands full with a stubborn Bobcat eleven; but nevertheless won a hard-fought contest 28-0. Woodie Husband’s interception on Overton’s second play from scrimmage resulted in a 54-yard touchdown run for the game’s first score. Hunter Husband then kicked his first of four extra points. Woodie also scored the second touchdown to clinch a 70-yard march led by Lee Noel. The next two touchdowns came in the second half on passes from Noel to Ed Anderson and Pat Woods. Noel had a great night in completing eight for eight passes. Again the rugged MBA defense proved to be too much for the opposition by scoring its second straight shutout. Fine efforts were turned in by Lee Noel, Ed Anderson, Pat Woods, and John W aggoner. ■■■ PAT WOODS Sobel snares a screen pass ■1 A ' «» • f • 1 • „ J, -Jjfc , V -. v ' S ’• ' ■ ;- ' t v Va . rj Woodie clears way for Hunter TOM LUCAS After failing to paint the school during the week, perennial toughie Father Ryan invaded Frank Andrews Field on Sept. 25 only to meet a keyed-up Big Red team. MBA racked up its third straight win by beating the Irish 21-6. The game started like an upset in the making when Ryan capitalized on a Big Red fumble and went on to score with only 3:31 gone in the first period. But before the period was over MBA quar- terback Lee Noel led the Big Red 52 yards in six plays to paydirt. Tom Weaver, after making a dazzling catch on a Noel pass during the drive, carried the ball over from the eight. Hunter Hus- band then kicked his first of three conversions. In the second quarter, after Hunter had re- covered a Ryan fumble on the Irish 11, Noel sneaked in from the one-yard line. Hunter tallied the last MBA score in the final period on a 21 -yard dash, aided by a tremendous block by Tom Lucas. Although it gave up a touchdown for the first time this year, the MBA defense was the best of the fall campaign, holding Ryan to just 74 yards in total offense. Led by Cliff Sobel, Pat Woods, Tom Lucas, and Ed Anderson, the defense held Ryan to 22 yards on the ground. MBA RYAN 9 s MBA MADISON On Friday night, October 2, the Big Red trimmed Madison 14 to 0 on a rain-soaked, fog- filled Ram field. MBA had only two scoring op- portunities and took advantage of both, getting seven points in the first period and adding seven more in the fourth quarter. It was the Red’s tenth straight win. Quarterback Lee Noel was the entire offense for MBA, scoring both touchdowns. These came on runs of nine and four yards and led the individual rushers with 57 yards in 19 carries. MBA’s defense gave up 87 yards to Madison backs in the first half. Stiffening during the final 24 minutes, the Red limited the Rams to only eight vards on the ground, thanks to the outstanding iinebac.king of Rick Evans and Woodie Husband. In addition, sophomore defensive halfback Bill Blair was a standout. Noel directed a 63-yard march in 14 plays for the initial score. The six-pointer came on a nine- yard rollout on fourth down. The second tally came on a 62-yard drive which was set up by an interception by Tom Weaver and climaxed by an- other Noel rollout. Although the play of MBA was somewhat spotty, the tremendous second-half comeback was enough to subdue the Rams. _ V is BUTCH HOOVER Noel piles past three Madison defenders for one of his two scores. Waggoner hit hard by defenders JOHN SHAPIRO The powerful Big Red, a unanimous choice this week as the No. 1 team in Tennessee, racked up its fifth straight win of the season by beating the Springfield Yellow Jackets 14-6 in a bruising battle at Springfield. The Big Red, led by quarterback Lee Noel, who threw one touchdown pass and rambled 24 yards for another, extended its victory string to eleven at the expense of the Yellow Jackets. Springfield took the opening kickoff and marched 93 yards to a touchdown, but they missed the extra point. The Big Red came back strong in the second period to get its first score on a 24-yard run by Noel. Hunter Husband added the tie-break- ing conversion to give MBA a 7-6 lead. Shortly after this touchdown, the Big Red got the ball on another punt and Noel promptly fired a 30-yard payoff pitch to senior end Pat Woods to end the scoring for the night. The game saw outstanding defensive play by both teams. Consistently leading the MBA de- fensive charge were Pat Woods, Rick Evans, and Hunter Hsuband. Also playing a fine game were Woodie Husband and Tom Weaver. MBA 14 SPRINGFIELD 6 100 MBA 9 GLENCLIFF 12 The Big Red’s lofty Litratings and title hopes suffered a severe blow on Homecoming night when the seemingly jinxed Big Red dropped a 12-9 decision to the Glencliff Colts. An overflow crowd of 9,000 saws the Colts outplay the Big Red in all departments. MBA scored first in the defensive battle after a fumble recovery by tackle Alf Sharp gave MBA the ball on the Glencliff 39-yard line. The touch- down drive, sparked by a 28-yard sideline sprint by Lee Noel, was climaxed by a 10-yard sweep by Tom Weaver. However, from then on the offensive attack was completely stopped by a hardened Colt defense. Glencliff scored in the second and third periods and although they missed both extra points, the 12 points were all they needed. The Big Red never quit fighting, however, and gained another 2 points, after Ed Anderson had punted to the Colt’s 6-yard line late the fourth quarter and Steve Loftin crushed a Glencliff runner in the end zone for a safety. Playing well for the Tobacco Bowl-bound Big Red, despite the loss, were Lee Noel and Tom Weaver on offense and everyone on defense, espe- cially Bill Blair and Pat Woods. JACK JUDD Waggoner rounds end MBA PAT PATRICK MBA stayed in title contention with a 33-0 vic- tory over the Litton Lions on Oct. 23. The win gave the Big Red a 5-1 league mark with two games left to play. The Big Red’s powerful offense showed itself mightily after the loss to Glencliff. Hunter and Woodie Husband did most of the damage to the Lions, getting two touchdowns apiece, while Tom Weaver picked up the other tally. Three touch- downs came in the first half, the final one on a 50-yard gallop by halfback Weaver. The Lions never posed a serious offensive threat as the fierce MBA defense was again outstanding in posting its fourth shutout of the season. The Lions were held to less than a hundred yards in total offense, while the Big Reds rolled up 412 yards passing and running. The game saw the entire MBA team in action and many of the reserves and sophomores turned in fine performances. 33 LITTON 0 lOl MBA STRATFORD In the initial meeting between Stratford and MBA, the Big Red barely kept their title hopes alive by sneaking by the Spartans 7-6. In the first half MBA played poorly, never get- ting its offense rolling. Stratford managed to score in the second period. The extra point was missed and MBA went to the dressing room trailing 6-0. The Big Red came back in the third period to even the score. Lee Noel broke through the Strat- ford line on a quarterback sneak to ramble 42 yards before being bounced out of bounds on the Stratford 2-yard line. It took the Big Red four plays before Lee Noel sneaked over the tying score. Hunter Husband then split the uprights for the decisive point. The game ended 7-6 after a fine defensive battle in the fourth period. Rick Evans and Woodie Husband played well for the Big Red, which now sports a 7-1 record.

The shellacking started at the kickoff when end Pat Woods scampered 87 yards down the sidelines to score before the first play from scrimmage. Hunter Husband then added the first of his seven extra points. Before the half ended MBA had amassed 35 points on touchdowns by Woodie and Hunter Husband, Lee Noel, Jim Burge, and Ed Anderson, besides Woods’ kickoff score. Leading the onslaught, which saw the Big Red roll up 314 yards on offense, were Noel and Woods with two touchdowns each and Hunter Husband with one touchdown and 7 extra points. The defense again was brilliant, shutting out the Burros until the fading moments of the final period. Leading the defense was Pat Woods who intercepted three passes. Over-all the Big Red sec- ondary intercepted 8 passes. Outstanding performances were turned in by all the seniors on the squad playing on Andrews Field for the last time. HILLSBORO 104 MBA MURFREESBORO MBA ended its season on a sour note in the Tobacco Bowl at Hartsville on November 13 by succumbing to a powerful Murfreesboro team 28 to 6. The Big Red scored first just before the half when quarterback Lee Noel fired an eight-yard pass, to wingback Tom Weaver. This score cli- maxed a 52-yard drive started by an interception by Weaver. The point after was missed and MBA entered the dressing room leading 6-0. The second half, however, was disastrous for the Big Red as Murfreesboro scored the first time they had the ball on a 68-yard drive and followed that score by another on a 74-yard drive. The Big defense continued to falter and Murfreesboro capitalized on the opportunity by pushing across two more scores in the last moments of the game. Nevertheless, the Big Red ended a fine season with an 8-2 record in a hard fought contest which saw excellent play by All-City halfback Hunter Husband and guard Grant Smithson as well as the seniors who ended their careers at MBA.

BASKETBALL The varsity basketball team experienced a re- warding 1964-65 season, closing out with an over- all 7-17 record. Under the excellent leadership of Mr. John Bennet and assistant, Mr. John Oxley, MBA steadily improved as the season progressed. Toward the end of the season, the Big Red showed this improvement by holding its own against such district foes as Ryan, Howard, and West. After dropping the first two games of the year to Cohn and Ryan, MBA overwhelmed Woodlawn. Since Woodlawn was the second-place team in the 20th district, this first win was an important one. The second Big Red victory came over North after tough loses to BGA and TPS. After a loss to West, Joel Parrish, the season’s leading scorer, paced the Big Red over Peabody. MBA dropped the last four games before examinations, but roared back after the break with fine efforts only to lose three games by narrow margins in overtimes. After these close games, MBA managed to beat Howard, TPS, and Peabody. The season ended with four close defeats. In the tournament, MBA opened with a victory over TPS but then lost a heartbreaker to Howard in the closing seconds. The prospects for next year are very bright since four juniors, David Hyatt, Jim Burge, Jerry Loftin. and Greer Cummings, played a great amount of the season, and they gained much experience for the future.

TRACK The track team is looking forward to a successful season, being picked as one of the top contenders in Nashville. The team will consist of several well- seasoned seniors and many improving juniors and sophomores. The 4H0-yard and 880-yard relay teams will be extremely strong, both having a chance at setting new school records. These teams will be anchored by veterans Tom Weaver and Pat Patrick. In the dashes Pat Woods and John Waggoner are expected to perform well. Senior Lee Noel and sophomores Jay Bowen and Benny Meeks will be strong middle-distance men who will bear the big Red colors. Bill Geny, John Shapiro, Joe Strayhorn, and Andy Anderson will be running in the 880 and mile events. Field event participants will include shot-putter and discus-thrower Clifton Sobel, pole-vaulter David Condra, long-jumper Hank Brackin, and high-jumper Jerry Loftin. In this hightly competi- tive sport, unfortunately, not everyone may par- ticipate in the meets and the many sophomores and juniors who daily strive for improvement and are not recognized should lend much added sup- port to MBA track teams of the future. : - High jumper Jerry Loftin clears the bar l’om Weaver and Pat Patrick practice a handoff.

Although the season has not begun, offi- cially, long hours of pre-season conditioning have been profitable. A fine infield is composed of Tommy DeMoss at first base, David Hyatt at second, Grant Smith- son at third, and Lynwood Herrington at short stop. Pitcher Paul Wells and catcher Jack Judd complete the battery. The outfield duties are ably performed by Ed Anderson, Charlie Kantor, and Larry Herbert. Hard-hurling Paul Wells and Elliott Jones will share pitching assignments. Veterans Judd, Hyatt, and Anderson provide hitting power. Smithson, Herrington, DeMoss, and Kantor add defensive strength to the team, and several new players can be counted on for additional support. Perhaps the greatest asset to baseball at MBA is the fine coaching of Mr. John Bennett. His dedi- cation, knowledge of baseball, and patience have inspired each player to attain his full potential. Mr. Bennett’s encouragement of summer baseball should provide MBA with outstanding teams in the future. Catcher Jack Judd and pitcher Paul Wells talk over the upcoming game. Tnfielders Grant Smithson, Lynwood Herrington, and David Hyatt discuss an important play. Freshman pitcher Bobby Sadler is a top prospect. 1 — 1 0 TENNIS The tennis team, with seven veterans returning this year, looks forward to continuing its perennial reign over Midstate netters this spring. Led by Captain Greer Cummings, who is expected to fill the shoes of last year’s Regional Champion, Frank Bass, Mr. Rule’s proteges are eyeing their 21st NIL championship in 22 years. Other veterans who will carry the MBA laurels are Dent Shillinglaw, Buzz Beauchamp, Tom Bailey, Trevor Evans, Rusty Lawrence, and Charlie Nelson. Newcomers expected to bolster the Big Red attack are Jim Webb, Norman Carl, Jim Stewart, Arthur Reed, and Steve Tatum. After completing a vigorous fall schedule which included matches with BCiA, MTSC, Vanderbilt freshmen, and a trip to Chattanooga for contests at Baylor and McCallie, the Big Red team appears to be heading for another successful spring. Besides eight NIL matches, and a pair of meets with BGA, upcoming contests include the Southern Tennis Tournament in Chattanooga; another Chatta- nooga trip, with a side trip to Darlington School in Rome, Georgia; and post-season tournaments. MBA was last year’s NIL victor, regional champ, and second-place finisher in the state meet. Youth and ability should enable MBA to defend past crowns and to continue its mastery over NIL op- ponents. Best of luck to Mr. Rule and the rest of the team in the coming season.

WRESTLING When the season started, MBA’s prospects of a second consecutive winning season were not very favorable. The bottom four weights were held by three rookies and a three-year veteran, John Billings. Larry Mathes, Dennis Schrader, David Dilley, and four-year letterman David Elam held down the middle weights for most of the matches. In the heavier weights, Bill Howell, Rick Evans, and Tom Gambill occupied the positions. Joe Strayhorn, because the team did not have a heavy enough man, was faced with the task of wrestling in the heavyweight division in which he did an admirable job. MBA opened the season with two straight wins over Donelson and Franklin. The grapplers then met an improved Ryan team and was handed its first defeat of the season by the score of 31-23. MBA bounced back after the loss to defeat Donel- son for the second time. After exams the team journeyed to Columbia, Tennessee, only to be de- feated by an excellent CMA team. This loss was offset the following week by the Big Red’s first vic- tory over the Tennessee School for the Blind. In their next match, MBA ran into eventual state champion and fell very convincingly in defeat. After another loss to CMA, the team avenged the earlier loss to Ryan and followed this victory with a fine showing in the state tournament which found Rick Evans and Tom Gambill placing third in the state.

GOLF 4 In the upcoming 1965 golf season, much can be expected from the well-experienced Big Red golf team. Although no actual matches have as yet taken place, senior four-year letterman Chip Baker, juniors Jimbo Cook and Bill Tyne are returning to lead the MBA linksmen into the hotly-contested NIL action. The remainder of the team consists of several younger players who should add fine sup- port to the veterans of the links. This year the golf team is under the direction of Mr. Morgan Stapleton, who is planning a trip to Chattanooga for the team to participate in the Southern Tournament. Success after success should follow this edition of the Big Red golf team. Left to Right: Tyne, Holman, Presley, Neff, Gorrell, Cook, Baker. Four-year letterman Chip Baker exhibits his form The 1965 Big Red rifle team, under the direc- tion of Mr. James D. Murphy, performed ex- tremely well this past season. Led by Captain Bill Kennon, the team captured two second-place and two third-place honors in the Youth Incor- porated-sponsored league. Expected to finish in the top three of a league composed of eight schools from the local area, Montgomery Bell Academy hopes rode on the accurate shooting of of individ- ual standouts Bill Kennon and Buddy Butts, who have both performed well enough to qualify for the expert award presented by the National Rifle Association. Overall, the rifle team, sporting several new members, had an extremely successful year, and with several returning marksmen to fire next year, a bright future, as well as more prominence in the MBA athletic scope, seems in store for the rifle team.
