Athletics build the qualities of integrity. WE DEDICATE A BOOK The 1966 Torch Staff dedicates our year- book to Mr. R, A. Ginn - teacher, advisor, friend, Mr. Ginn attended Birmingham-Southern, David Lipscomb, Howard, and the University of Alabama. He has a B.A. degree in English and Speech and an M.A. in secondary educa- tion. He combines this excellent training with genuine respect for his students. He teaches classes in speech, dramatics, and Latin. His warm attitude toward his job is re- flected in the answer he gave when asked if he liked teaching. He said, " Well, there are good days and bad days. Most of them good. " The picture at the right was taken as Mr. Ginn enjoyed a moment with his study hall group. Students and teachers know him as a modest man who is always willing to help. Each year he serves as Latin and Drama Club advisor. He sponsors senior plays and assemblies. In ad- dition to this, he has a senior home- room and teaches as many as four different subjects. H.imiJiaM iay.BJimj.iM ' Jiiiai!mm m HE DEDICATES HIS LIFE 1 1 Mr. Ginn ' s life is truly dedicated to his students. Not only does he teach them academic studies, but he also sets high standards of behavior. His classes are conducted in an informal atmosphere, but an atti- tude of respect between student and teacher remains. The youth who come into con- tact with Mr. Ginn will always remember his friendship as a treas- ured part of life at Jordan. EVERY MOMENT IS THE JOY Life is no brief candle to me. It is sort of a splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing on to further generations. George Bernard Shaw taamm FILLED WITH OF YOUTH As Shaw said, our life at Jordan is a splendid torch. It is ours to make burn as brightly as we can during the short time we are here. kp PEVIL SPIRIT OF ' 66 A THRILLING MOMENT A TIME TO STUDY SPECIAL HELP THESE ARE A PART OF LIFE AT MJHS 10 .v»paoTOoi II i i u i n ii im m mmmmi y ii r ' j., . w ' mn ' ' ' mfmmf ' r ' -vma NEW ADMINISTRATION FOR 1966 Mr. W. E. Burkett advocates hard work and active interest in learning for his students. His career as a student is evidence that he follows his own policy. In 1951, he graduated from Memphis State University with B. S. and M. A. Later he took some special courses at Howard College. He is now do- ing graduate work at the University of Alabama. This is Mr. Burkett ' s first year as principal at Mortimer Jordan. He came here from Mt. Olive Jr. High where he was principal. Since he received his own high school education here, he is well prepared to understand Jordan stu- dents. Mr. Burkett ' s new administration is characterized by regard for stu- dents and teachers, firm but fair discipline, and a well organized, business-like approach. Mrs. Thompson, our new registrar, works with Mr. Burkett in keeping our school running smoothly. 12 ' mamimmavmiviniiMi ' . i nWK " !

Mrs. Glaze Mrs. Dixon Mrs. Shannon This year the National Council of Teach- ers of English awarded the Mortimer Jordan English teachers a citation for excellence in the teaching of English.

Personal problems, student- teacher relations, and academic standards are only a few of the categories which qualify a student for guidance counseling. Each year Mrs. Stubbs is also responsible for aiding seniors in selecting colleges which suit their individual needs. Then she assumes the tremendous task of super- vising college applications. 14 ' i mLA I MH l llLl i " » !i ' ! WJ. ' ' . ' , ' » i . i , » l M i ».W| B( " . ' J. ' .

Mike Burkett, Paul Rhodes, and Gary Quick (pictured above) made the Birming- ham News and Post Herald First Team All-County, and Donnie Harbin made the Second Team. At the Football Banquet this year Paul Rhodes and Gary Quick (at left) were awarded trophies for the most outstanding Lineman and Back. 78 HOMECOMING ' 65 Jerry Hall and Gary Quick lead the Devils to the Battlefield. Jordan won the toss and elected to receive. These Homecoming fans weren ' t disappointed as Mortimer Jordan drove to a 14-0 victory. Coach never really shed a tear. Rodney James and Pete Willis get a well de- served rest. Homecoming 1965 proved to be an exciting experience for both students and alumni. The festivities began on the night before the big game at a bonfire where the Blue Devils burned a Hewitt Huskey. On Friday, spirits were still high as Jordan met and conquered He- witt. 79 FIRST TIME EVER . . .

In the three years prior to this, he has lost only one game in the Northern Division. When asked about the ' 66 team, Coach said that it would depend more upon speed and squeeze plays than upon power, as in the past. In January, Coach and some of the players attended a Baseball Clinic sponsored by the Atlanta Braves.
