The actors and directors put their own signatures on them, " said Thorn- ton Wilder. MBA ' s dramatic productions have been signed in a large, bold script, that of our adept, exacting direc- tor, Mr. Holcomb. His quick wit, over- whelming or- iginality, and superb abilities In teaching and dramatics combine to make him the epitome of the well-rounded man. For teaching us so much, not only about academics, but also about life, for holding " the mirror up to Nature, " the editors dedicate the 1971 BELL to Mr. Terry Hol- comb. DEDICATED TO MR. TERRY HOLCOMB The hot fun of the Summertime quickly passed away as September steadily ap- proached. Suddenly one awoke to discover that it was Registration Day. Buying books, signing the MBA Register, getting one ' s schedule, writing one ' s name on gym shorts. Then came the first day of school; To some it was a day for glad reunions with friends one had not seen since May. It was a day to look around to see what had changed: new paint in the rooms; new teachers, in- cluding Mr. DeMoss; and, most of all, new boys. For these boys, it was a day of loneli- ness and confusion, but these feelings soon passed. ‘-A, The fall became a succession of Friday nights. Pep rallies, cheerleaders, all for our super team. Looking back at last year, no one expected much at first, but the team emerged victorious. As everyone chanted, " We ' re number one! " 9+0 ir 1970 rQ Ahov . ■sr obcL AboV« 4V e- C_o q«- The year ' s newness soon rubbed off as we settled down to our work. Our sideburns scarcely survived Hair I970 ' s " Baboon Bob scourge. We watched with glee as the Gourmet Committee, child of last year ' s strike, fought insurmountable odds to get us a burger without tomatoes. 10 The annual Spaghetti Supper was pre- ceeded by a week of bitter inter-class struggles for the weekend, which everybody won. At halftime of the game we ogled as Queen Dede- Beasley and attendants Linda Linert and Kathy Follin were presented in the cold, brisk air. The school plant was plagued with van- dalism, much to Mr. Carter ' s dismay. These attacks did little but arouse our sense of pride. As the days lengthened and our interests in study waned, we looked forward each day to see what assembly held in store for us. This carefree attitude came to an end with mid-term exams. -X. The period after exams was truly a time to relax. One began to tire of classes, tests, labs, and other such restrictions. In other words, spring fever had set in, but upon re- ceiving one ' s fourth six week ' s grades, one reluctantly got back to work. The basketball team surprised us, surpassing the expecta- tions of all, except the players themselves. The winning season thus gave an outlet for feelings pent up during the winter. 13 " Oh, that was such a beautiful play! " said many a MBA mother after watching the MBA-Harpeth Hall Players present Thornton Wilder ' s widely acclaimed play " Our Town. " After long, arduous weeks of rehearsals, the cast and crew performed magnificently in two showings, both to S.R.O. crowds. Mr. Terry Holcomb and Mrs. Williams of Harp- eth Hall directed the show, which had a cast including Mr. Holcomb, Tom Neff, Amy Swartzbaugh, Brock Stevenson, Clive Sell, Susan Shoulders, Mary Lea Gibson, and others. The days of March slowly went by as MBA students anxiously watched their cal- endars. The spring vacation countdown was on each one ' s lips as he nervously fingered his plane tickets or hotel reservations. The last few days were truly agonizing; one could almost feel the Florida sun, but, un- fortunately, one was still in cold Music City, U.S.A. The Meteor Band awaited their first public appearance; the Seniors had their cars all loaded for the Lemans-type start. The final bell rang, and they were gone in a cloud of smoke. Florida will never be the 15 same. The days quickly grew longer and longer: Seniors gradually began to realize that the year was really about to end. Commencement, the day Seniors had dreamed of for four years, came. For one of the first times, the whole class understood the opportunities MBA offers.

The purpose of any government is to find the proper balance between freedom and responsibility, between the rights of the in- dividual and the rules of society. The stu- dent government of Montgomery Bell Academy is entrusted to the Student Coun- cil, a representative body composed of the four officers of each class. Working with both the faculty and the students, the Council, under the able leadership of Presi- dent Bob Murphy, strives to promote the best interests of the school as a whole. Voic- ing the opinions of the student body, it works to improve controversial matters of school policy and to foster discipline among the students. The Student Council provides the true leadership of MBA, carrying on the tradition of the MBA boy — scholar, athlete, and gentleman. The MBA student assumes the great re- sponsibility of being honest, thus refusing to lie, cheat, or steal. This Honor System pervades all aspects of school life; at all times the student places the greatest im- portance on his honor. The Honor Council, made up of specific numbers of students from each class, has the duty of fostering respect for the Honor System. Led by Gep Nelson, the Council judges cases involving infractions involving any form of dishonesty, and it recommends punishment to the fac- ulty. The fact that the students themselves judge their own fellows is quite unique; the policy demands great maturity and high esteem for integrity on the part of all stu- dents: however, the great success of the Honor Council, since its inception in 1945, attests to the great character of MBA boys.

The Big Red Club is hard to define. In simplest terms, the Club has the purpose of instilling the student body with school spirit, loyalty, enthusiasm, and support of all as- pects of school participation. But, in other words, the Big Red Club is the conglom- eration of all those who truly love Mont- gomery Bell Academy in all its endeavors. It is the group which thinks nothing of being at every game. The greatest thanks from the students go to the cheerleaders, who have given so much of themselves to MBA. 84 Wild Man Dan busts on through.

But that purpose does not do justice to the present student. Thus, the 1971 BELL has combined this purpose to the one of entertaining the student of today, also. Instead of dull, dry material, the vibrant, living aspects of MBA have been recorded for the future, but, more importantly, for the present. Editor Bob Murphy. PHOTOGRAPHY STAFF: Sawyer. Parrish. Neff. Small, Wright, Cummings. Hiller. Editor. The 1971 BELL is a return to the roots, away from pretentiousness and back to the students. The large, do-nothing staffs have been eliminated. An emphasis has been put upon better photography. The whole format has become more casual. The idea has been to show both sides of the MBA student, not just one. The joking, vivacious, and alive student is in the introduction, and the seri- ous, introspective, and moody scholar is shown in the epilogue. Business Editor Ed Pirtle. THE BELL RINGER The thenne of this year ' s BELL RINGER could well be summarized as " whatever men do, or say, or think, or dream, " as Alex- ander Pope so aptly states. The erudite Co- Editors, Wade Sutton and Ben Mabry, have set out this year to portray these actions, thoughts, and dreams of the MBA student in their paper, to the delight of the students and to the chagrin of the faculty censors. Breaking away from the traditional MBA newspaper style of stale news and very dry humor, this year ' s paper has presented us with fresh insights into MBA life, creative writing, informative polls, and entertaining humor.

DRAMATICS CLUB At times, the MBA student feels impris- oned by the homework-test-theme syn- drome: he feels like he must create, and the best outlet for these energies is the MBA Dramatics Club. Undoubtedly, one of the main factors of the Club is its dynamic director, Mr. Terry Holcomb, who has brought professionalism to MBA dramatics. Veeveemoyn Productions at work. Led by officers Tom Neff, Bob Murphy, and Bill Jewell, the Dramatics Club has worked diligently. The Club presented, along with Harpeth Hall, a series of cuttings centered upon " The Monkey ' s Paw " and a grand production of " Our Town " to the de- light of a hard-to-please audience.

The Club has given its members an insight into national affairs, an improved ability to think clearly, and im- proved speaking skills. With exceptional records in this year ' s major tournaments, the Forensic Club through hard work has maintained its heritage of high standards of excellence. Koonce, Berry, Bond. Bow.

Except for a few scanty appear- ances, the annually popular Chorus stayed cooped up in the Vine Street Christian Church music room. Like a football team losing senior lettermen, the Chorus was hard-hit by graduation last year. Howard Frost bravely stepped forward to play piano, and Mr. Tom Rhea continued to lead the group and instruct the members in the fine points of music, working toward perfec- tion. Howard Frost tickles the ivories. 92 First Row: Pennington, Marsh, Bodo, Stewart, Andrews, Puckett. Second Row: Miller, Wright, Malone, Sawyer, Parrish, Hiller. A picture is worth a thousand words, or so the saying goes; thus, the Photography Club is rather talkative. Activities for the year, with an emphasis on photography as a career, have included speakers from news- papers and television stations, visits to photo labs and studios in Nashville, and sev- eral special classes. The members have gained useful understanding of all technical aspects of photography as both a trade and a hobby. PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB 6 Arthur Hiller snaps an interesting shot.

PirtI Nelson SERVICE CLUB For those who are willing to serve the school, to give up their own time in service to Montgomery Bell Academy, membership in the Service Club is a true honor. Loyalty to the school and active participation in school functions are the requirements for possible selection for membership. The group is very selective; out of the four hundred and fifty students in MBA, only twenty boys are asked to join. This group, four per cent of the student body, are the school ' s workhorses. These Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors are called upon to do many necessary jobs without any thanks. This year, under the able direction of President Bill Peerman, the Club has been kept busy. Members have collected canned foods for needy families at Christmas time; they have taken up tickets at wrestling matches: they have collected donations for various charitable organizations. Thus, the Service Club has been a tremendous asset to both the school and the community. TOTOMOl To those who have served MBA goes the very great honor of membership in Totomoi, the highest honor a student or friend of the school can obtain. The fraternity was created in 1954 by Dr. R. L. Sager to recog- nize outstanding students, faculty members, alumni, or friends of the school who have contributed to the improvement of the school.

The 1970 edition of the Big Red was an amazing team, and it got amazing results. Following the grim 2—8 season before, skeptics refused to give much attention to MBA; however, the previous season had only been a learning experience for the young MBA team, giving them much- needed experience. From the first game on, the Big Red rolled, bouncing back to the top of the ratings, winning game after game with ease. The team, under the lead- ership of Bill Summers and Bill Peerman, once again tasted victory, but the later knowledge that Coach Owen, the man who built the Big Red into a winner, was leaving gave a sad aftertaste.

Our illustrious team huddles as McWhirter hams it The Big Red took the field against a highly regarded Hillwood team away from the confines of Andrews Field. With a Lati- mer to Peerman T.D. toss, the Big Red grabbed a quick lead. Two more MBA at- tempts were foiled, and in the third quarter the Toppers pushed it over for a tie. The next week, Antioch ' s Bears came to the Hill as a 19 point favorite. After the Bears held a first quarter lead of six, MBA pushed in front with T.D. runs by Latimer and Fisher. Victory was gained by the tough defensive stands: MBA now had its confi- dence. Ernie boots off into an NIL Championship season. Fisher tiptoes through Antioch tulips. Quickly regaining i+s prestige, the MBA team next asserted its strength against the Franklin Rebels. The offense methodically crushed the Rebel defense, while the MBA defense started a string of consecutive shutouts. The final score of MBA ' s decisive victory was 30 to 0. With an air of hopeful apprenhension, the Pearl Tigers ventured to MBA. The coin toss went in favor of the Tigers, but the rest of the afternoon was a nightmare for them. The MBA crowd saw McWhirter, Justice, Curtis, Zerfoss, Leonard, and Gar- rison score, making it MBA 5 ' ‘1 — Pearl 0. Fisher looks for Peerman while Tate and Bob stand ready for any Rebel. Disgruntled Tiger makes a futile last ditch attempt to catch Squirt Mc- Whirter. w;;Tl wmm mm Hal Justice ' s ever-popular T raveling Sideline Show. Facing the tough Overton Bobcats, in their own lair, the Big Red had a hard-hit- ting struggle. MBA scored early on a pass to McWhirter, and late in the last quarter MBA iced the game on a Fisher to Peerman strike. With their third consecutive shutout, the defense once again shone. The greatest challenge, however, was the Homecoming bout with Brownsville, one of the twelve best teams in the nation, number one in Tennessee. Coach Owen ' s strategy, however, was sound; Brownsville backs met head-on opposition. Enemy passes were in- tercepted, giving MBA an amazing 21-0 victory. Breaking away for a first down, Latimer asks himself, " Rocky who? " With hopes of an upset, Hillsboro next hosted MBA, now ranked second in the state. These hopes were quickly dispelled as Fisher connected with both Peerman and McWhirter for touchdowns. Latimer and Regen smashed across to score, giving MBA a 42-7 lead at half. Afterwards, the reserves came in and held the score. The following week, thie highly touted MBA squad was bewildered as the Spring- field Yellow Jackets jumped to a quick 8-0 lead. This score held until Fisher made a T.D. run; MBA was still behind until Mc- Whirter scored in the last minute. MBA re- mained undefeated, but now it was not Number One. Rich in his white shoes shifts into high. Big Buff Summers breaks on through. The luckless Glencliff Colts had the mis- fortune to come up against the enraged Big Red team; MBA made the game into a track meet as the score grew to 56 to 0, MBA ' s favor. The regular season ended with a visit to the Hill by arch-rival Father Ryan. A shaky 5-0 lead was secured by Leonard ' s field goal and a safety. With a brilliant punt return by Latimer and two more touch- downs, MBA ' s victory was assured. stands! " Bad boys, Curtis and Regan, mangle fish eater. 1970 CLINIC BOWL The final hurdle to an undefeated season was the N.I.L. Championship against Two Rivers on Dudley Field ' s tartan turf. As in the past, the MBA offensive machine rolled over the Pirates, as Peerman, Fisher, and Latimer went over to score. The second quarter saw Fisher connect with Justice for a T.D.; the final score was in MBA ' s favor, 26 to 3. Undoubtedly, the line did the most work without acknowledgement; thus heartfelt thanks go to Brant Lipscomb, Frank Floyd, Wade Sutton, Trigg McClellan, and others. However the most praise goes to Coach Owen. The team is glad it could give him, as a going away present, this great season. The strong legs of Bob Latimer run. . .

The illustrious JV team, under the guid- ance of Coach Riggins and Coach DeMoss, had a rather trying year, with a 0-5-1 record. A controversial loss to Antioch was followed by three decisive de- feats to Franklin, Millwood, and Overton. The highlight of the year was the 8-8 tie with Ryan in an exciting, error-filled game. The season ended with a courageous, but futile stand against Murfreesboro. How- ever, the goal of the team was not to con- centrate on victory, but mostly on expe- rience; the JV team gained knowledge to be used on the Varsity in future years. 108 FRESHMAN FOOTBALL First Row: Spaulding, McClellan, Weicic, Stengal, Harbison, Brittain, Matthews, Collier, Barge, Trickett, Elam.

Wi+h five lettermen and three starters returning for the 1970-71 season, the Big Red appeared potentially strong. Led by Seniors Kyle Young and Bill Hickerson and Juniors Fred Fisher, Mike Regan, Steve Armistead, Bob Latimer, and Ernie Leonard, MBA enjoyed a successful year, compiling a 17-10 record. During the first month of the season, the Big Red recorded a respect- able 5-3 record highlighted by a win over new rival Overton and, despite 27 points by Fred Fisher, a tough 65-61 loss to arch rival Ryan. no VARSITY BASKETBALL Coach John Bennett sends in some strategy against Ryan.

By the end of January, the team had upped its record to 11-5 by winning six games out of eight, including another win over Overton on Ernie Leonard ' s last sec- ond basket, and two victories over Battle Ground Academy. The remaining segment of the season was extremely important not only to have a successful season, but also to obtain a desirable seed in the oncoming tournaments. Of the six games left, MBA was scheduled to play Pearl, Ryan, and highly-ranked Hillsboro. After a close 60- 54 loss to Pearl, MBA got untracked with an 88-73 win over Hillwood, in which Kyle Young pumped in 35 points, and with a 69- 62 victory in the rematch with Ryan. The next game was against fourth-ranked state power Hillsboro. The Burros had amassed in their first twenty games an im- pressive 19-1 record. Ill Latimer goes up for two as Fisher goes down. The Hack eases on by a bewildered Rebel. Down by as much as fifteen and by ten at the beginning of the fourth quarter, MBA clinched a 72-69 upset over the Burros on Bill Nickerson ' s two free throws and Kyle Young ' s basket. Fisher had twenty points to lead the scoring, with Junior Mike Regan getting eighteen and both Nickerson and Young getting eleven apiece. Going into the district tournaments, the Big Red had compiled a 14-8 record and a third place seed, having won ten out of fifteen district contests. With the pressure on, Regan comes through with a free one. Fisher runs a collision course with Peabody longhair. In the opening round MBA once again beat Overton, pushing the Big Red into the semi-finals with Pearl. Led by Steve Armi- stead ' s 26 points, MBA edged the Tigers 62-59 and advanced to the finals against Hillsboro. The Burros came from behind for a close 58-55 championship victory, making the Big Red district runner-ups. Big Fred drives in for two. In the Reglonals, MBA won a close one over Ryan on Armistead ' s last second field goal, but the Big Red lost to tall Cameron, ranked first in the state, 88-38. Thus the sea- son had many highlights. Individually, Armi- stead and Fisher were named to the District tournament team, and Fisher and Young were rewarded with positions on the All- District team. As a team, ended the year with an amazing 17-10 record, with wins over rivals such as Ryan, Overton, Hillsboro, and, for the first time at MBA, Pearl. Also, for the first time in fifteen years, MBA ad- vanced to the Regional semi-finals. Bobbo pumps it right on in. Garrison seems really intent on the game.

After two open- ing wins over Franklin and Murfreesboro, the Big Red " wrasslers” lost a decision to the eventual State Champion Father Ryan. Triple-A Champion Glencliff, Divisional Champion Antioch, Maplewood, and Hill- wood were the other teams who could boast wins over MBA. The Big Red, how- ever, steamrolled over BGA, CMA, Over- ton, and Donelson. The squad was hard-hit by injuries, a fact which significantly weak- ened the team. On the varsity team were six seniors — Alan Wright, 127 pounds: Mack Harrel, 134; Captain Tad McWhirter, 141; Bill Anderson, 147; Sam Rutherford, 167; and David Page, Heavyweight. 118 Coach John Riggins looks on with interest. Predicament points for the Big Red. McWhirter whizzers to the bitter end. Also on the team were two juniors — Co- Captain Bill Knox, I 14 pounds, and Tom Curtis, 157 pounds. The Big Red was rounded out with Sophomores Vernon Hut- ton and Thanny Mann and Freshmen Mark Brown and Bill Branch. With six returning lettermen, plus a host of prospective candi- dates, MBA ' s wrestling program appears headed toward a powerful role in the state. Three members of the squad. Wright, Knox, and Curtis, advanced to the State Tourna- ment in Chattanooga, but misfortune again followed the Big Red, as all three lost in the preliminaries. With their demise came the close of another successful, tough, and re- warding season.

The MBA Rifle Team started out the 1970-71 season with two close wins over Overton, who later defeated MBA in the last three matches. All in all, the team won two first place and three second place trophies. The team was led by Ed Stevens, who captured the high individual trophy in the very important last match. For their fine shootin g in this match, Stevens and Tom Cummings were chosen for the All-Star Team. Stevens, Cummings, Tommy Parrish, Charlie Morrison, and Robert Thomison re- ceived silver medals for finishing second in the final match. Parrish, Stevens, and Cum- mings will receive gold medals for finishing in the top five. Next year looms brightly for the team; Stevens, Cummings, Koonce, Turner, and Van Cleave will all return to continue their success. Captain Mitch Garriott begins his downswing.

This year the team is completely under the coaching of Mr. Donald Fairbairn. There are several re- turning lettermen, including Garriott, Fuqua, Holcomb, Lawrence, and Matthews.

" You know, running two miles " over the river and through the woods " is not easy! Your race becomes even tougher when it begins to rain, when the wind picks up and you ' re running along breath Catchl ir- d It Commencement is finally over. The Class of 1971, with their signed diplomas in hand, have left the ranks of students and have become alumni. Summer has begun, and quiet descends over the Hill. The ex-Senior sadly sees how this " alumni” label separates him from the remaining students. He must realize, however, that MBA is an infinite series, of which one class is only a single factor. Senior classes depart in a blaze of infamy and glory, but next year there is always another in its place. MBA is an initiation process, turning a rowdy Seventh Grader Into a sadder but wiser Senior. The school is not a single entity, but a mixture of similarities and contrasts. We all have common ex- periences, such as a decent haircut, themes, athletics, and Mrs. Lowry ' s Eng- lish. These things form the framework of MBA. However, within this ■framework, there are five hundred individuals, each with dif- ferent thoughts, moods, and emotions. At MBA, one meets varied and opposing points of view; however, without these con- trasts, there would be no progress. As Faust says, ' Two souls cohabit my breast. " Two opposing forces strive against each other within each student. On one hand, the MBA student craves solitude. Life is so hectic; there is so much to do, to re- member, and to forget. Why does one come to MBA? What does o;ie intend to make of life? To find the answers, to sort out the knowledge gained here, to find one ' s own’ niche, one must break away from the crowd and sit down alone to think. 134 But who is so self-centered that he has nothing to do with others? Social involve- ment constitutes another force. " I get by with a little help from my friends, " and so often this help is indispensable. At times one can feel so alone and desperate, until he goes outside himself, to some friend. It 136 is hard to bare one ' s soul to another, but one begins to realize that he is not so bad off, that others have gone through the same difficulties. One ' s companions also seek this same understanding. Friendship is mutual, as rewarding as it is difficult. But this is no time for philosophical me- anderings. Action is the only truth. We are here at MBA for so short a time, but the effects of our attendance endure for so long. Now is the time to get involved, to gain insight, to be alive. Carry on. IN RECOGNITION MBA ' s loss of Coach Tommy Owen to Vander- billt University brought to an end almost two decades of teams coached by the MBA mentor. Bringing us to a seemingly endless string of vic- tories, Coach Owen now brings similar good for- tune to Vanderbilt as a varsity coach. COMPLIMENTS OF CHEROKEE SECURITIES COMPANY Compliments of J.
