For her inspiration to the creators ofthe "Mohian
Miss Annie Ruth Moore
A word, before you turn this page. In presenting this
record book of the Senior Class, we, the members of the 1940
Mohian Staff, feel that we must give exposition and a con-
structive purpose to our handiwork in order that you, who
are our critics and have been our guide, may more fully under-
stand its meaning.
The success of an annual does not consist in the satisfac-
tion which it brings to its creators or to its adherents upon its
completion. This, indeed, is too momentary. The propitia-
tion, rather, lies in its capability to bridge the years-to bring
our hearts back to Murphy with "Fondest mem'ries true"
when our future will be spending itself.
The primary purpose, therefore, in preparing and pub-
lishing a yearbook is to serve as a book of memories--mem-
ories of working and learning together, memories of com-
radeship in study, memories of things accomplished, mem-
ories of the enduring spirit of high school life-to perpetuate
a knowledge of events.
Yet to attempt to embody these memories and the insti-
tutions which have fostered them in book form is an exceed-
ingly exacting task. They are as elusive as intangible, even
though alive and transcendent of time, and endeavors in the
past to compile them in a palpable form have sometimes been
concluded in a deceptive state. Variegated colors clothe the
ordinary, offering poor recompense and justification for the
forces which have formulated our ideals.
Therefore of imperfections there are many. Much of the
mediocre will at times be manifested. Nevertheless, we trust
that our aspirations will disallow this to a great extent. We
have sought to avoid the commonplace through the evalua-
tions of these cherished reminiscenses which are our treasure
and which constitute our heritage, which, in reality, require
no aggrandizement, embellishment, or classic expression, and
inquire after the enduring, thus to narrate our real story. It
is simply what it is and no more. Through this medium we
hope we may enable you to share in our experience, an ex-
perience which with few exceptions, constitutes life at its best.

To make any statement concerning Murphy institutions
and ideals would be but to reiterate what already has been
so well expressed in picture by the Great Seal of the school.
If ever one has noticed closely, in the center is the Murphy
student with the whole world spread out before him. Occu-
pied in his studies, he is in a surrounding of education which
is being consummated in character. Indeed, it is watched
over by Truth, who stands at the Murphian's right shedding
the light of consistency and advance with her mirror. The
Earth, with all its thriving activity, opens wider with each
passing day to give the Murphian his education and his cul-
Moreover, to these two are added the element which
teaches the Murphian his duty to mankind and to himself.
Embodied in the Constitution of the school are many of the
fundamentals for which Murphy was erected. ". . . To insure
good government, to maintain the standards of . . . honor . . .
and to encourage the practice of good citizenship . . ." These
are something of what is bound up in the realization of cre-
ativeness and the broadening of knowledge and insight and
the heightening of character-good government that is con-
spicuously democratic, honor essential to the age, good citi-
zenship which is the reflection of years--all an integral part
of Murphy life.
It is, further, multifarious. In fact, the variety is sur-
prising. Thanks not only to a widely diversified curriculum
but also to many different extra curricular activities which
add to the genuine enjoyment and satisfaction of the Mur-
phian, there is hardly a place where talent may not be used
advantageously, and it is for just such things that Murphy is
known and loved. Properly used, Murphy education stands
unsurpassed for a constructive element.
As a natural result of all the effort and concentration in
the great school which Murphy is today--though much ca-
pacity remains for improvement-there must come an event-
ualatriumph to the Murphian, and, to be sure, to his left there
is Victory, holding over the Murphian's head the laurel of an
ide-al, its visionary power emanating for the being of his life.
Extended curriculum and increased
enrollment force commissioners to
take steps toward planning a new
1924-School Bond Issue passed.
1926-School moved from Barton Acade-
my to new Mobile High School lo-
cation on Carlin Street.
1927-School renamed in honor of Mr. S.
S. Murphy, late superintendent of
schools of Mobile County.

Murphy High School, built in 1926, is composed of nine build
ings of Spanish Renaissance type of architecture. From the front
may be seen the Academic or Main Building, Arts Building, Audi-
torium Cafeteria, and the Physical Education units. In the rear
the Mathmetics Building Language Building, Manual Train-
are , .
ing Shops, and the Biology Building. There are approximately
' ' h ne hun-
elghty-five classrooms and four study halls. T ere are o
dred and fifteen teachers with five members of the office force
and five librarians. Murphy High is situated on Carlin Street and
covers thirty acres. It was built at a cost exceeding one million

There is an old Roman maxim beginning "Expende Han-
nibalem," which, translated, reads: "Weigh Hannibal and
see wherein he is greater than other men." It was not, surely,
in his physique, or in his riches, or the violence of his wars.
History may dwell upon these, but men are not thus remem-
bered for something that does not long endure. It was rather
his great masterfulness and his ceaseless activity that has
given rise to the comparison with a scale which many another
man would fail to balance. Just so can it be said of Murphy,
for out of unfavorable circumstances Murphy has risen above
restraints to exhibit masterfulnessg and this has been caused
by the humanity flourishing within its walls.
Murphy is the result of three component forces, each of
which is a necessary co-function of the other two. The three
together form the compact unit which today marks Murphy as
outstanding among many as an establishment of learning.
The three together find among themselves an inexhaustible
source of richness and improvement. The first, in the pride
accompanying construction, the second, in the good of fash-
ioning mindsg and the third, in the progress attending learn-
ing. Thereby Murphy's purpose is fulfilled.
In the first of these forces, the administration, Murphy
has indeed been favored. At the head of Murphy, guiding its
course for the advantage of all, are leaders whose undoubted
devotion to Murphy and education has brought about a deep
respect in the minds of loyal Murphians and of a wide circle
of associates. Their efforts have kept Murphy in the fore,
bringing forw-ard its standards and indiscriminately widening
its interests. They more than adequately fill the need of
Giving Murphy the advantage of their training, the sec-
ond force, the faculty, is in no lesser degree furnished to di-
rect Murphy. Connection with them is predominating simply
because they form part of the subjects they teach.
A promiscuous third force, containing almost every kind
of talent, is the students. What they lack the other forces
supply, and what they have is given with that which shows a
promising posterity. They are coming more and more to real-
ize the true significance of education and its advantages. It is
youth at its best.

Much praise is indeed due Miss Mae Eancs, who has been our beloved assistant principal since
1926. As a native Mobilian she has given her time and thought to the development of the youth of
this city and has rendered an invaluable service. Just recently she was selected as "Our Leading Citi-
zen," an honor which she rightfully deserves. This title represents the many things that she has done
toward the betterment of the welfare of Mobile. Helpful advice has been given many students, be-
cause of her endearing interest in each and every member of the student body. She speaks of them
as "her boys and girls." Many of our student's parents had the privilege of having her teach them
and have loved and admired her through the years. A character as hers can be questioned by no one.
Her sportsmanship is shown by her much quoted poem: "When the One Great Scorer comes to write
against your name, he writes not whether you Won or lost but how you played the game." A spirit
as this is an inspiration to all. What a satisfaction it must be to her, to realize, that her life has been
so full of priceless accomplishments.
A well known instance in which Miss Mae was hon-
ored was on March 16, 1935 by Delta Kappa
Gamma, an honor fraternity in education. Here
Miss Mae was paid tribute by Frank Grove, W. C.
Griggs, C. F. Vigor, William F. Fagerstrom, and
K. J. Clark. At that time the following tribute
was given by Mr. Clark: "Nine years ago, I be-
' came acquainted with Miss Mae Eanes. Since
then, it has been my rare privilege to work
closely with her in Murphy High School. I
have come to know, to admire her, to respect
her, and to hold her in high esteem 'because
of her great personality. Her brilliant mind
and sparkling wit, her great strength of
character and fine sense of justice, reveal
themselves in a clear vision, courageous
spirit, and deep sympathy. She loves her
work as few I have knowng she loves chil-
dren like a real mother, and gives to her
work with the children a service of love
and devotion that is an inspiration to
those who work with her. Out of her
broad experience she has achieved un-
derstanding and wisdom. I count it
among the rarest blessings of my life
to have had this opportunity to know
her, to enjoy her fellowship in pro-
fessional service, and to call her
friend. A' i
"Tis human fortune's happiest
Height to be a spirit melodious,
Lucid, poised, and whole,
Second in order of felicity
To walk with such a soul."
Such services to Mobile and Murphy High School
have made Miss Mae well known and admired by
all. Her life is an example for future generations.

p rase heard in the front of-
fice- It is Miss Taylor, the youngest of
Murphv's present f
I aculty, fulfilling' her
duties as clerk. With two student help-
ers each period she answers the phone,
makes appointments for Mr. Clark, and
sells all tickets. Last year she was sent
to Auburn by the Glee Club of which
she was a member for four years. She
is loved by all who know her and par-
ticularly by the football team iso I've
heardj. Miss Taylor loves to help any
boy or girl "Anytime I cang no matter
how busy 1' am."
Miss Green, who graduated three
years ago, is Murphy's record clerk. She
looks after all transfers and send
pils' records t

Principal K. J. Clark addressef
Having a faculty such as ours is indeed a fortunate thing for any school. Such teachers as
Mr. Sidney Phillips, Mr. Ray Venman, and Mr- B. T. Dobbins have won the admiration of all
and add much to school life. Others dear in the hearts of the students are Mrs. S. S. Murphy
and Mrs. E. L. Breland, whose sweet personalities and wonderful abilities as teachers have made
them sought by all. Miss Clyde Kennedy, our art teacher, with able assistants, is responsible
for the artistic development of Murphy High students. After the distinction the Four Arts
Club has brought to Murphy High School, congratulations should be given our splendid dra-
matic leaders, Mrs. Louise Hamil and Miss Ruth Knudsen. Working hand in hand, they have
been very successful. For their untiring efforts in the interest of the students of Murphy, Miss
Ruth Forehand and Mrs- Jessie E. Cole also are due sincere thanks. Never too busy to help
someone, Miss Hazel Driver, dean of girls, fills a place in the hearts of all. Under her guidance,
Murphy girls can always receive valuable advice. Let us not forget the important services
which Mr. Roy Wilkie has rendered' our school. Through his faithful work, he has made it pos-
sible for us to have one of the most outstanding year books of the United States. Contributions
like these are remembered through the years, Due praise is given Mrs. Anita Grimes, who has
been responsible several years for the publication of the Murphy Hi Times, our school paper,
of which we a1'e justly proud. Our able librarian, Mrs. Devilbliss and Miss Elizabeth Moffat, wtih
their worthwhile suggestions about good reading, are very helpful to the students and fill neces-
sary places. 5
It is through the eo-operation of these and many other members of the faculty, who are
not mentioned here, that our school has become the institution of learning that it is today.
Chairman Advisory Council, Porter King. Right:
resident. Student Governing Council, Carolyn
In order to bring the student body closer to the governing council, the advisory council was
organized. The membership of the advisory council is comprised of one representative from each
section. The representatives are supposed to deliver to their sections the problems and new
ideas discussed in the meeting. Members of the different sections give suggestions to their rep-
resentatives. In turn he takes them to the neXt advisory council meeting and they are dis-
cussed. Through the minutes of the advisory cuoncil meeting, the governing council receives
its suggestions. If an idea or suggestion seems helpful, or to the betterment of the school, it
is discussed and voted on in the governing coun'2il meeting. If passed, it is then given to our
principal, Mr. Clark, for further consideration. A Chairman, vice-chairman, and a clerk serve as
officers of this advisorv council. Mr. William Uf1ZlCk61' served as its able faculty advisor this
year- It is through this organization that the spifit Of Ullity is Obtailled in 9. SCl100l HS 121129
The Student Governing Council is composed of twenty
student representatives. Six are elected from the Senior
class, four from the Junior class, three from the Sopho-
more class, two from the Freshman class, and one from
each of our three mid-year classes. The president of the
council is a member of the Senior class, and vice-president
is a member of the Junior class. These twenty students
are advised by Mr. W. C. Stapleton. One of the greatest
responsibilities of the council is the management of the

Miss Fan Randlette
The Juniors, still very much a part of our high school
life, are characterized not only by increasing intellectual
maturity but also by a social poise revealed in their
well-planned social events. With such a go-getting group
of officers as Stone Stickney, presidentg Narvie Liu Cun-
ningham, vice-president, Gene King, secretaryg and Bar-
bara Cowan, treasurer for the regular class of Juniors,
and Julian Gewin, presidentg Rose Peters, vice-presidentg
Jack Chin, secretaryg and Norman O'Connor, treasurer
for the mid-year class, it is not surprising that the Junior
class managed to score triumphantly in both scholastic
and extra-curricular activities.
The first of the Junior-sponsored activities was an all
junior assembly, in which the Juniors put on an exhibi-
tion of the artists in the class. The theme of the assembly
was the entertainment of the student council representa-
tives. For these, the junior acrobats turned and twisted
and threw themselves around to the music of a Junior
orchestra. Then the singers came to put on a concert for
their representatives. In athletics, junior men figured
prominently, playing a particularly important part in
football, basketball and track. These boys give much to
the building of the name of the school, and also help
themselves with the character training received in tak-
ing part in their various games- The crowning glory of
their social career was the Junior-Senior Prom, which
went over in great style and was the most important
even of the junior year, from a social standpoint.

What is a Sophomore? HA whining school-boy with
h. . . .
is sachel and shining morning face, creeping like a
snail unwillingly to school." Murphy's sophomores are
quite the contrary Take f l
- -if-.. '
. or exampe Bill Flanagan,
Sophomore president. Bill is a fine leader, a good mixer,
and has many friends. More or less following in his
brother's footsteps, he is captain of the B team. Betty
Dorgan, vice-president, is proof that the saying "Beauty
but no brains" does not always hold true. The fact that
Bett w '
y as vice-president last year also speaks for her
brains, and the fact that she was Freshman Queen speaks
for her beauty. The position of filling the secretary's
shoes in any organization is a large order, and Bob Doyle
fills this order admirably. The class treasurer, Ed Baum-
hauer, is well thought of not only by the students but
the teachers as well. The Sophomores chose Mrs. Mur-
phy as their sponsor. The mid-year Sophomores are not
to be overlooked- They have their own representatives
of high school government. They are namely, Robert
Arendall, presidentg Mildred Costa, vice-president: Ed
Roy Faddis, secretary, and Katherine Mayhall, treasurer.
The president is a wonderful example to foll
grades are mostly A's and his ability to lead this group
is outstanding. Mr. Dobbins is sponsor of this group
which numbers 149. More power to these groups, not
only in maintaining fine leadership throughout their re-
maining school career, but may they set an example for
the future Sophomore.

Last September T33 Freshmen, comprising one of the largest
classes in the school's history, entered Murphy. After the Freshmen
had wiped the first surprise from their eyes and were able to see
their way about more clearly they began the work of organizing the
class and electing a sponsor for the year that was to follow. This
group wisely selected Mrs. Gertrude Crenshaw, member of the Phy-
sical Education Department, as their sponsor.
Having served as sponsor for the grad-
uating class of 1939 during their four-
year sojourn at Murphy, Mrs. Crenshaw
was well qualified for the position to
which she was elected. The Freshman
class was extremely fortunate in having
such an able advisor. After electing a
sponsor, the Freshmen turned their at-
tention toward the job of electing their
officers. Jean Kemp was elected presi-
dentg Betty Griggs, vice-presidentg Pat
Crawford, secretaryg and John Danirich,
treasurer. The real work for these of-
ficers began in December when the first
meeting of the Freghman class was held.
At this meeting some of the plans for
the following year were made. These
officers have really proved themselves
worthy of their positions and helped
make school life more enjoyable for the
Freshmen at Murphy. We are sure that
these officers Will make outstanding stu-
dents at Murphy.
Many are the duties of the Freshman
class officers. They not only hold meet-
inpgs of the class and help plan the so-
cial events, but they also plan charitable
work und :iid the school in many ways.
They investigate the withdrawals oi stu-
dents from the school and they send
cards to the sick. As we look upon these
good citizens of our school, probably
with a touch of pride, we hope that
they will do as much good for our school
as they did during their first year at
dear old Murphy.

Any of half a dozen approaches will bring one to a group
of buildings, the beauty of which and of the accompanying
grounds is entirely in keeping with the purpose they serve.
For eight hours a day the group, totaling eight in all, is a
scene of bustling and busy activity, for in them in advance of
three thousand students are engaged in the all-important
work of receiving instruction and of serving the school com-
munity as such an organization may well be called. Murphy
has in recent years grown to such proportions that it has be-
come a powerful agent and has acquired an independence of
its own: powerful because it is comprised of an adolescence in
the American democracy which is wary, and independent be-
cause it is differentiated from a similar establishment by the
gathering of many people, who are bound to be of various
types and different endeavors, in one place. Thus the diffus-
ing of differing opinions is made possible, and the expending
of new ideas is rendered a rather complete and effective en-
terprise. Thereby a maximum of efficiency is approached.
Fruitful as such a situation must be, all Murphians have some
of it in common. Imperceptible though it may seem at times,
there is innate in us a certain pertinent sense of common es-
teem and creativeness, which has shown itself at one time
or another in everyone.
One's interests and needs can easily be satisfied at Mur-
phy through a curriculum which has a double purpose. First,
it emphasizes and requires those fundamentals which every
person should haveg and second, it offers a wide variety of
other subjects to gratify personal interests, to prepare for a
life work, or to make ready to enter a larger field of educa-
tion. Thus learning at Murphy is evolved with a liberality of
insight. In the classrooms, in the office, in the gymnasiums
this same spirit is encouraged: the fundamentals and one's
own needs or interests.
Such, in brief outline, is Murphy's plan, and such is the
result of its growing size. Murphy is abound in these pleasing
qualities for those who look for them, and for those who de-
sire it, it is formulative of the great wide horizon of knowl-
edge. Out of books, out of opinions, out of study and thought,
out of common interests come Murphians' minds. The result
is a very pleasing one.

Familiar to all students at Murphy is
Miss Aline Bright, head of the English De-
partment, but unfamiliar to them are her
various achievements and many honors
which have been bestowed upon her other
than in the English Department. Graduat-
ing from the University of Chicago with
Senior Honors, General Scholarship, Hon-
ors in English, Honors in Education and
the Phi Beta Kappa Key, were just a few
of her early accomplishments, The best
report written in the United States on the
movement to change the way of teaching
English was written by our own Miss
Found among every student's books at
Murphy High School, is the well-known
blue booklet-English Fundamentals. Al-
though it is minute in size, it contains an
abundance of English grammar and is
studied faithfully all four years. Pupils
are required to pass a test each year on
this booklet before being promoted to a
higher class in English, therefore, its im-
portance is greatly stressed. Grammar
alone is not the only subject taught in
classes. Instructions in how to enjoy and
appreciate the finer pieces of literature are
also a definite part of the curriculum. Each
year many modern textbooks are bought
to help both teachers and students alike.
Another interesting feature of the Eng-
lish program is the formation of clubs. Cer-
tain teachers have created and sponsored
these various branches, and the students
have co-operated in every Way to make
them succeed. The Bibliomaniac Club,
sponsored by Miss Whitey The Parliamen-
tary Law Club, sponsored by Mr. Phillips,
Reading Aloud For Pleasure, Mrs. Footeg
The Scribblers. Mrs. McLeod: The Shake-
speare, Miss Hope, and The Speakers Bu-
reau, Miss Ruth Moore, are all connected
with English. Some of these are new this
year, but all are progressing rapidly. Spe-
cial courses offered to students, which are
proving more helpful and popular each
day, are dramatics, journalism, and pub-
lic-speaking. The aims of these courses are
to develop an appreciation of the best in
drama through a brief history of the dra-
matic development. The journalism course
aims to teach the student to read newspa-
pers intelligently, to have a critical under-
standing of the current journalistic trends,
to give practical instruction in the gather-
ing and writing of news, to develop habits
of accuracy through insistence upon exact
details in the writing of everyday happen-
ings, and to stimulate gifted pupils to
greater activity in newswriting. In public
speaking the student is acquainted with
the general procedure in deliberative bod-
ies, special stress being placed upon enun-
ciation and pronunciation. Pupils find that
here they may develop their ability to ex-
press their own thought and emotion as
Well as understand that of others.

Efficiency is the keynote of
the Commercial Departmentg
however, other qualities of de-
pendability, punctuality, and
trustworthiness have been found
to be essential to making the most
of opportunities offered by the
department. Students are train-
ed not only to secure jobs but also
to hold them. Courses are offer-
ed for training in almost every
phase of business. Because short-
hand and typing are essential to
many types of work, classes in
these subjects are always full.
Bookkeeping is of course neces-
sary to all kinds of businesses and
is an excellent course for devel-
oping accuracy. To insure a thor-
ough knowledge of all fields of
commerce, Business Principles,
Commercial Law, Business Arith-
metic, and Economic Geography
are taught. Several competent
students each year are chosen
from the department to assist Mr.
Boland in bookkeeping. These
pupils deserve a great deal of
credit for the work they are do-
ing and for the services render-
ed the school. Many students,
upon leaving M u r p h y High
School, have secured good jobs
because of their proficiency in
some of the above-named studies.

An important department of any school
is the Household Arts Department. At the
head of this department is Miss Annie
Louise Smith. Miss Smith, whose capabil-
ity and interest make her an efficient di-
rector, must see that the debts incurred by
the department are paid. Also, she must
see that the instructors teach by the course
of study that is provided for them.
At Alabama College for Women, at
Montevallo, she received her Bachelor of
Science degree. After teaching two years
of Vocational Home Economics in a small
Alabama town, she Was added to the staff
of Murphy's teachers.
Almost every girl wants to know how
to take care of her own home and family.
This is very efficiently taught in the course
of Household Management. In this the pu-
pils learn how to furnish, manage, and care
for the home. They learn to serve a prop-
er, balanced meal, and to make and care
for articles used in the home.
To own and furnish a home of her own
is the desire of the average girl. To be
better able to plan and furnish her "dream
home," a course in Homeplanning would
be very useful. This is the study of plan-
ning a house by discussing types of archi-
tecture, building materials, and construc-
tion. In the latter part of the year, the
study of each room of a house is taken up.

The enrollment of the clothing classes
surpasses that of any other subject in this
department. Open to girls in all classes,
the first year of clothing is an opportunity
to learn design and selection, which is em-
phasized by the teachers. If further knowl-
edge of clothing is desired, a continuation
of the first year is available. Emphasis in
this course is placed on the selection and
care of clothes suitable for a high school
girl, and the care of cotton and silk fab-
rics. A more advanced study of clothing
provides instructions and practice in plan-
ning, buying, cutting, fitting, and the mak-
ing of children's clothes. A study is made
of wool design, the choice of materials, tex-
tiles, and the use and alteration of pat-
terns. Each year the department sponsors
a fashion show for an assembly and a P.
T. A. meeting in which the students model
clothes that they have made.
Among the activities sponsored by the
Household Arts Department are the vari-
ous clubs. One, the Costume Construction
Club, sponsored by Miss Tate and Mrs. A,.
R. Smith, is a part of the Four Arts Club.
It provides the costumes for performances
given by the players. The girls in the club
elected Janice Paterson as their president.
Another club, the Consumer's Education
Club, has as its aim to learn to buy more in-
telligently. They study how to apply and
buy cosmetics. Sponsored by Mrs. Morris-
sette, it has for its president, Irma Dahl-
gren. Mrs. Ross advises the girls in the
More For Your Money Club how to buy
clothes that are economical as well as suit-
able. In these various clubs students learn
many things that are not taught in class.

The Social Science Depart-
ment, with which at one time in
his high school career each Mur-
phy student comes in contact, be-
cause one year of Civics and His-
tory are listed as subjects re-
quired for graduation, offers a
widespread variety of subjects,
starting with Ancient and Medi-
eval History and coming right up
to modern times with World His-
tory and Modern European His-
tory. Governed by the purpose of
turning out better and more cap-
able citizens, boys and girls that
are to make the intelligent, self-
governing, straight-thinking men
and women of tomorrow, the So-
cial Science Department is al-
ways on the alert for new trends
in government and politics. Prob-
lems in American goverment
and its related subjects and
phases are grounds well covered
by classes in Civics, Social Prob-
lems and Economics. As much
stress is laid on ancient histories
as on the more modern ones be-
cause it is an established fact
that experience, while perhaps
less agreeable, is the best teach-
er, and where else is one to find
all the experiences of man since
the very beginning, but recorded
in history books?

Women Whom she has taught, Miss Edith
Duffee is no less Well beloved by her pres-
ent students. She is widely traveled and a
Woman of cultured tastes. Reading is one
of her favorite pastimes. For fifty-one
years she has tried to impress upon the
minds of her students the value of cultural
study not only in contacts with other per-
sons, but also as a source of personal satis-
faction. To have taught for fifty-one years
is a great achievement for anyone and to
be taught by one such as Miss Duffee is a

Latin is the basis of cultural study and
is not a dead language in the strict sense
of the word. The Romance languages are
based upon it, many scientific names come
from Latin, our own English language is
full of Latin, some of the most marvelous
poetry of all time is written in Latin, we
must not allow it to die. In our Latin
classes we learn much of the customs and
wonders of the great Roman Empire. There
are three teachers in the Latin Depart-
ment: Miss Duffee, Miss Tait, and Miss
French, the smallest of the language
departments, is taught by Mr. Ray Ven-
man. Affectionately known to his students
as Monsieur, he is one of the most inter-
esting and delightful figures on our cam-
pus. He took his degree at Cornell and was
awarded a scholarship to the University of
Poitiers in France.
The Spanish Department is headed by
Miss Bertha Spradlin. By traveling in
South and Central America and other
countries, her education is never ending.
This is an advantage to any teacher. Be-
cause of the chaos in Europe today we are
turning more and more to the South and
Central American countries for trade. It
will be a great advantage to anyone in
business, therefore, to know Spanish. A
secretary who knows Spanish is invaluable
in any business and especially so in a ship-
ping company. Other capable teachers in
the department are Mrs. Fulcher, Mrs.
Daughdrill, and Miss Rubira.
The Latin Club is sponsored by Miss
Ruth Tait. It is for students who are for-
mer members of the club or who are tak-
ing second, third, or fourth year Latin. In-
teresting studies of Roman life, language,
and customs are made through short plays,
games, and projects. During the Christmas
season members learn to sing Christmas
carols in Latin. Clubs relating to foreign
peoples are advantageous to everyone be-
cause they bring about a better under-
standing of their problems. Our clubs try
to bring about this closer relationship
through programs or the customs of the
people. The Junior Spanish Club is spon-
sored by Mrs. Daughdrill and is for pupils
taking first or second year Spanish. A
study is made of the life and customs of
Spanish speaking people. Miss Spradlin
sponsors the Senior Spanish Club. Only
Juniors and Seniors who have considerable
ability in Spanish conversation are ad-
mitted. Topics relating to Spanish speak-
ing peoples are discussed, and Spanish
games, contests, parties, and songs are en-

At the head of this department is
Mr. Hubbard, Who has taught these
subjects for fourteen years. He re-
ceived his B. S. and M. E. from the
University of Purdue, also attending
Cincinnati, Michigan, and Alabama
Universities. Mr. Hubbard says that
he wants all the students to appreci-
ate the materials they are Working
with and Wants students to develop
various hobbies from their studies.
Consequently large numbers of boys
and girls sign for these courses and
keep the classes filled.

"Experience is the best teacherf'
people have been saying for years-
and so it is. That is what the Indus-
trial and Fine Arts Department keeps
in mind for the student who wishes to
take courses in Industrial and Fine
Arts subjects. lt gives one a certain
satisfaction in originating or creating
something, alone---learning by doing.
And the students feeling this satisfac-
tion accomplish many Wonderful
things of which both their teachers
and parents are duly proud. The
classes in this department include a
study of the materials, tools, pro-
cesses, products, and personnel in as
many industrial and fine arts occupa-
tions as, time permits, to be taught in
our high school. In our age, we are
striving to find out the best products
and the materials which go into these
products, therefore the ability to rec-
ognize the highest quality is another
point which is stressed. If the student
after taking these courses does not
choose this as his occupation, he has
so many material gains that it is in-
deed vvell Worth his time. And if he
does choose one of these subjects as
an avocation, he is Well informed and
carries with him much practical
knowledge. Something that many
girls and boys would like to know, is
that the courses offered in this de-
partment fit students for a field that
has an extremely large opening. The
teachers stimulate the students' in-
terests, and the students reward the
teachers with their earnest efforts,
therefore a successful cooperative sys-
tem is involved. Many projects are
assigned in the study of processes and
the pupils advance in these projects
from one stage to another, all the
time developing certain skills which
may he useful to them. Articles which
are made in the projects are usually
taken home where they have a defi-
nite and proud use as an example of
the fervent endeavors of the teachers
The excellence of our Mathematics De-
partment is a great tribute to Miss Anna
Mary Sclater and the teachers, Miss Moon,
Mrs. Cox, Miss d'Ornellas, Mrs. Murphy,
Mr. Brown, Mr. Vaughn, Mr. W. T. Doug-
las, Mr. Dobbins, Mr. Hand and Mr. Wil-
cox. This year the department gave up
one of its best loved teachers, Mr. Pillans,
who went on to a position in which he
could better serve his community. These
teachers never rest. Some of them have
organized clubs connected with the sev-
eral branches of mathematics. The newest
of these is the Engineering Club, whose
purpose is to aid our future engineers. It
is capably headed by Miss Moon, who has
a specialist's degree in mathem-atics. Mr.
W. T. Douglas heads the Astronomy Club,
i. e., the star-gazers. At their regular

meetings they study the universe about us,
and once a month at a night meeting they
observe the stars through telescopes. There
is also the Mathematics Club, which solves
trick problems and puzzles.
Oh! The long weary hours spent on
math problems! And yet counting our
gains we find our time has been well spent.
Not only do we acquire credits for college
entrance, a foundation for any scientific
work and training in accuracy of thinking,
which is needed in all fields of life but we
are given the opportunity of knowing such
beloved teachers as Mrs. Murphy, Mr.
Brown, Mr. Vaughn, and Miss Sclater, our
oldest teacher from point of service. Math-
ematics, though not required, is offered as
follows: one year of arithmetic, two years
of algebra, plane and solid geometry and
one-half year of trigonometry.
Murphy is comprised of many depart-
ments, each having its place in the prep-
aration oi' the student for his future life.
Ut' these departments none is more impor-
tant than the Civics Group of the Social
Science Department. With Mrs. Foote, Miss
Hargrove, Miss Anderson, Mrs. Breland,
and Miss Michael as instructors, this de-
partment is capably handling the task of
educating the pupil to uphold his respon-
sibility, as a junior citizen, for the develop-
ment of better government. The depart-
ment is headed by Miss Josephine Michael,
who personifies everything a citizen could
be. In the problems facing the school no
one has shown more interest than she.
Neither has she been surpassed in the Work
of moulding our school into the democratic
institution which schools all over the coun-
try are using as a model of self-govern-

ment, for Miss Michael was chairman of
the committee appointed to draw up the
Constitution of our school.
In the work of building citizenship into
the character of students, the department
endeavors to show how the state has de-
veloped from the simple organization of
the colonies to the complex society of to-
day and makes clear how the government
changes its policies to meet the changing
needs of the people due to prevailing con-
ditions. Then the pupil is taught to solve
problems of social importance by the pres-
entation and solution of problems which
faced the public in the past and by class
discussion of current problems. This analy-
sis and explanation of human activities in
social groups plays a prominent part in
helping the youth adapt himself to social
and economic conditions.

Mr. F. Lee Bridgewater, chairman of
the Physical Education Department and
boys' gym instructor, has an unusual scho-
lastic record - finishing high school in
1922, normal school in 1923, and Illinois
State University with his B. E, degree in
1924. After working several years at Fair-
burry, Illinois, he did summer Work at the
University of Minnesota and graduate

pare boys for varsity football, basketball,

The old Romans had a very good rea-
son for their firm belief in a fine physique.
They knew that while mental education
was very important in the making of a suc-
cessful and happy man, one could never
fully enjoy the fullness of this life unless
he was physically sound.
As people began to cease putting such
importance on physical development new
diseases started. Now sanitoriums treat
patients with what might be called na-
t,ure's remedy-fresh air and plenty of
Realizing the need of something to pro-
vide for this lack of physical training,
many schools in the United States have in-
stituted a program of physical education.
Murphy has one of the finest, if not the
finest, departments in the South. This unit
is composed of three gyms-one for the
boys, one for the girls, and one for correc-
tive dancing. Each gymnasium is equipped
with very modern facilities, and the correc-
tive gym has special equipment for cor-
recting physical defects. There is a swim-
ming pool in which pupils who do not know
how to swim are taught. It has the latest
equipment. Adjoining this is a physical
examination building composed of eight
rooms. Each pupil is examined here regu-
larly. The varsity department has its own
dressing rooms and showers.
There is an eight-acre playground sur-
rounded by a hedge and a fence. The play-
ing area is laid out in the shape of a horse-
shoe with floodlights and bleachers for a
football field. There's a cinder track, five
outdoor basketball courts, five volleyball
courts, six tennis courts, and this year they
have started teaching golf.
For the entire four years of school
courses are offered, being compulsory the
first two years and elective the last two
years. The Freshmen are helped in se-
lecting their course for the second year by
being given a general course the first year.
At the end of their Freshmen year they
are permitted to elect one of the following
groups: swimming, mass games, or danc-
ing. In swimming, diving and first aid are
stressed. On the days swimming is not
taken, individual activities are taken up.
In mass games, basketball, volleyball,
baseball, speedball, and many others are
offered. For the dancing course, folk
dancing, tap dancing, and ballroom danc-
ing are taught.
There are also some very interesting
clubs that are sponsored by the Physical
Education Department. They are the Out-
ing Club, Archery, Equitation, Letter Club
for Girls, First Aid for Boys, Panther and

The Science Department of Mur-
phy High School offers four courses
or units of study, two of which are
required for graduation. Of these two
units one is required in General
Science the Freshman year, and the
other may be elected from any one of
the three laboratory sciences: Biolo-
gy, Chemistry or Physics. This pro-
gram of science does not propose any
sequence of courses and a pupil may
choose to elect more than one labora-
tory science. Each is complete unto
itself. The demand for self-activity
in our schools, the view that the child
and not the subject should be the cen-
ter of our educational effort, the em-
phasis on the social values of educa-
tion, the conception of education as
a gradual growth in the direction of
habits and behaviors that make for a
happy life, and the growing view that
the subject matter is but a means to
education are but a few educational
postulates which had direct influence
upon the selection and organization
of the General Science course. Since
high schools no longer exist primarily
to prepare a student for college, the
aim of high school biology has come
to be biology in relation to human
welfare, and the course of study has
changed to a course based upon fun-
damental principles. A mastery of
the more important principles of bi-
ology gives the student some assur-
ance that he will still be able to meet
the problems that arise after he leaves
school and finds himself in a differ-
to right, lowerl Girls' Biology
ent environment. The object of our
Chemistry course is to show the serv-
ice ot' chemistry to the home, to medi-
cine, to agriculture, and to industry.
The course also tends to help pupils
find themselves, to discover whether
they have aptitude for further study
in Chemistry or applied science, and
if so, to encourage such students to
continue their study of science in uni-
versity or technical school. The Phys-
ics course provides an opportunity for
acquaintance with the elementary
laws ol' nature which aid in the under-
standing of those citizenship problems
which arise in connection with such
topics as development of water power,
transportation, lighting, automobiles,
radio and simple applications of phys-
ics in public utilities. Physics also
teaches pupils to read scientific ar-
ticles more intelligently. A course re-
cently introduced into Murphy is
C0nsumer's Science. Its objective is
to teach boys and girls to be more in-
telligent buyers. The principles which
seem to function most frequently in
the solution of problems of every-day
life constitute the nuclei around which
these five science courses are woven.
Of the boys and girls that graduate
from high school eighty percent will have
to find some kind of Work after leaving
school. Many of these will find that they
have had no preparation for any kind of
work. The purpose of Murphy's Vocation-
al Department is to help these students get
a better start in their chosen occupation.
If, however, after he graduates, the stu-
dent finds he can go to college he can do
so because graduates of this course get a
regular high school diploma.
The director of this department is Mr.
Cecil MQ Ward. He spends an hour at
Murphy in the morning advising the stu-
dents. The rest of the day he spends in
looking out for them on the job. When
the vocational classes were first organized,
he spent only one-half of his time on those
classes. It has now expanded so much

he now has three co-Workers: Miss Salters,
Miss Jeffers, and Mr. Olds.
Each 'day the students spend three
hours in school studying high school sub-
jects, one of which teaches the related
technical information of the job for which
they are training. At least three hours are
spent on the job getting practical experi-
Of the sixty boys and girls engaged in
this Work one-half of them are in retail
selling occupations. Others are engaged
in various fields of work. The field that
is expected to expand next is the commer-
cial Work in typing and stenography. Stu-
dents may be trained in any occupation in
which there is enough skill required to jus-
tify students spending three hours a day
in training for two years.
llelicving that students should spend
their spare time to the best advantage, the
library department under the able direc-
tion ot' Miss Elizabeth Moffat, tries to pro-
vide attractive library facilities for Mur-
phy. lt not only helps students with their
school work but makes them better citi-

Beside the actual volumes in the li-

by the various occupations centered around

Out of training comes the learning of knowledge, out of
its application comes its vitality. In this simple statement lies
the whole of man's well being. All the great arts and sciences
would be of no use to him if they did not serve for his occu-
pation, understanding or diversion, and did not contribute to
his proficiency and singularity. These factors-each one an
application of knowledge-are, in reality, knowledge itself.
Work in the several fields has brought about more knowledge,
and thus knowledge was originality built and is now added
to, and wisdom-by heeding experiences encountered in these
There is no place at Murphy where this application of
knowledge is felt more deeply than in student activities. This
ever-increasing policy-steadily growing because of its pop-
ularity-is now profoundly rooted as an integral portion of
the school. To discern between Murphy and student activi-
ties would leave one with many overlapping ends, and is, in-
deed, an almost impossible task. Such a close relationship ex-
ists between them and certain subjects that distinguishing is
difficult to say the least, because, in some cases the subjects
themselves have been fostered by these activities as well as
the activities by the subjects. Thereby extra-curricular activ-
ities serve not only for recreation or enjoyment, but also as a
means to an end, in this way adding accomplishment and the
satisfaction which accompanies it to the list of benefits. Since
their inception early in the life of Barton, extra-curricular
activities have been found to round out the high school curri-
culum, and this fact definitely marks Murphy's as one of a
Diversification being the keynote of the age, this stand-
ard is exemplified when one considers the number of different
student activities at Murphy, including outlets for almost
every field of talent. With varying requirements for partici-
pation, most of them easily within the reach of the average
student, the long list from which a student may select adds
to his genuine pleasure, and offers a wide field for the appli-
cation of his knowledge.
Truly extra-curricular activities seem a far-reaching in-
fluence at Murphy. Aside from any other values, they have
brought much honor to this institution and have made a name
for it comparable to none. They are the powerful result of
application, which will, in its turn, We are sure, create more
knowledge, and thereby wisdom. '

The Welfare Store, one of the most important organizations at Mur-
phy, has an interesting origin. Around 1923 or 1924 a group of girls
who called themselves the Welfare Workers had the ambition to
establish a scholarship for some worthy person. They decided to have
a carnival to raise the desired amount for the scholarship. Failing to
reach their goal the first year, they decided to sell pens and pencils to
make up the amount which they lacked. The principal of Barton at
that time gave them the permission to use a small unoccupied room for
this purpose. The next year, because of their success, they decided to
sell used books, but this proving unsatisfactory, they resorted to the
exchange of books. The present staff of the Welfare Store con-
sists of our sponsor, Miss Brunson, Nick Holmes, Tommy Thomp- 1.
son, Louis Salmon, and Jimmy Adler. Its convenient loca-
tion adds to its usefulness.

Publication of the Mohian has been
greatly facilitated by the hard work of a
large and co-operative staff. The staff is
composed of two divisions, the editorial
and the business. With the help of Banks
Griffith, Jr., editor-in-chief, Evelyn Boll-
ing, assistant editor-in-chief, Louis Salmon,
secretary, the following members of the
editorial staff have worked diligently this
year to give you the best annual ever pub-
lished: Lucy Bush, Carrie Brannan Chil-
ders, Rex Criminale, Carolyn Gaston, Lucy
Horst, Richard Miller, Hugh Payne, Caro-
lyn Rosson, John Shriner, Doris Smothers,
Mary Lee Tibor, and Bobby Wilkins. No
one could give the proper credit to the edi-
tor, because last spring he worked unceas-
ingly for three months planning this year's
Mohian. For twelve years Mr. Wilkie has
advised the undertakings of the staffs. Un-
der his supervision the Mohian has brought
many honors to Murphy. Upon the busi-
ness staff rests the responsibility of making
the Mohian a success financially. Working
this year with Jimmy Adler, business man-
ager, and Marion Lacoste, assistant busi-
ness manager, were the following staff
members: Albert Amos, Jimmie Brown,
Gerald Burke, Martha Louise Clark, Mari-

the popular side of Murphy's musicg

Every Murphian, whether he knows his Fundamentals, Math, History, etc.,
or not. knows Murphy's ligand. It is one of the most popular organizations at school.
Wav back in 1926 there were no musical organizations at all. So in that year Mr.
R. D. Houser organized the first orchestra which gave its first concert at a Four
Arts Production in the fall of the s-ame year. At that time the band of twenty never
dreamed of playing at a football game. Then in 1929 a Glee Club was organized and
thanks to Mr. J. Jones Stewart, who secured uniforms, the band was able to appear
in all its glory at the football games. In 1932 the work of Mr. Hiestand and Mr.
Carl Danley in the form of the band, orchestra, and Glee Club was turned over to
Mr. Stookey, who with the help of Mr. Claude Dahmer-who came to direct the
orchestra in 1934-has increased the Music Department to an orchestra of seventy,
a band of eighty, and a Glee Club of a hundred and twenty. The Junior Musicians,
who number a hundred, even now give concerts and play for Pep Parades. Of
course the band now appears at every football game and during the half, stepping
to the time of their music, arouses the crowds to new excitement. They keep up the
spirit of our team and are real inspiration to our cheering section. Can you imagine
a game without them! This year they made a trip to Pensacola for a concert and
had the honor of playing for the General Motors Parade of P1'ogress.
"Heart's are high when the band goes by,
Wc're marching on parade" was the song of the band Armistice Day and
Mardi Gras. They marched in five parades during Carnival.

"Oh Miz Hamil! Miz Hamill How do I say
this line? What do I do now? Where does this
go?" These questions are being bombarded at
Mrs, Hamil, who is director of all our plays
and sponsor of the Senior Players. She is the
Hinformation please" of our dramatic depart-
ment and can do more than any three beople
we know. She is ably assisted by the stage
crew, which is managed by Mr. Bridgewater,
better known behind the scenery props as
"Prof.', Also an important factor in the big
machinery of the stage is the clothing depart-
ment, which aids in the making of our cos-
tumes, and other incidentals that are needed
as stage properties. Those who are in the plays
do not have to buy their costumes, that is done
by the Four Arts Club, and in th-at way, the
club has a large wardrobe which increases with
every play, Helping and co-operating, too, is the
Fine Arts Club and it does almost everything
from making stage scenery and painting furni-
ture to making crowns for the kingly heads.
With the ease that takes many
years' experience, Bob Flanagan
presides over the Senior Players.
Bob is the easy-going sort, is well-
liked for his efforts in the Play-
ers Club, and has kept the group
in smooth running condition.
However, he denies any previous
experience of this kind, so We are
more astonished than before.
Heading the Junior Players into
bigger and better things is their
President, Sam Higgins, who pre-
sides over the joint meeting, al-
ternating with Flanagan. The
Senior Players are composed of
juniors and seniors who gain en-
trance to the club by a try-out
and are judged by different
teachers. One try-out, the fresh-

ior players this year consisted of
only sophomores who tried-out.
excluding the freshman, because
the club has become so much
larger. From these groups, mem-
bers -are chosen by other try-outs
for the casts of productions given
each year. The purpose is to
present better types of plays for
the student body of Murphy High
School and its audiences and to
let the club members absorb a
bit of drama, both ancient and
modern, and to familiarize them
with playwrights and actors.

Scenes from "You C:in'l Take It With You."
"You Can't Take It With You," the
hilarious comedy, won the Pulitzer prize
on Broadway and the Academy Award as a
motion picture was presented by the Four
Arts Club. The laugh-jerker is one that
appeals to any audience that believes in
good-natured laughter, because of its un-
failing good humor, and its optimistic phil-
osophy. The play shows in its many moods,
the lovable Sycamore family. Alice Syca-
more, the daughter, is young, dreamy, and
sane. Tony Kirby, who, incidentally, falls
in love with Alice, is her young boss. Pen-
ny Sycamore, Alice's mother, writes plays
because a typewriter was left at the house
by mistake. Essie, Alice's sister, takes bal-
let dancing and makes candy for her hus-
band to deliver. Rheba, the cook, serves
cornflakes, watermelon, meat and candy
for dinner. Also in the Sycamore house-
hold, are Paul Sycamore, Penny's husband,
and Mr. De Pinna, the ex-iceman, who
came for ea visit and just stayed. They
spend their days and nights making fire-
crackers. Ed, Essie's husband plays the
Xylophone, prints, and makes masks, but
his business is delivering the candy that
Essie makes. A regular visitor at the
house, especially during meal time, is the
Russian, Kolenkhov, who teaches Essie
dancing. Then there is Donald, in love
with Rheba and enjoying life because he
is on relief, and spends his spare time
catching flies for grandpa's snakes. Pre-
siding over the Sycamore family and re-
sponsible for their varied activities, is
Grandpa Vanderhof, who could have been
a rich m-an, but who quit business one day
because he wasn't having any fun. He oc-
cupies himself in throwing darts, hunting

Whether the Murphian realizes it or not, one of the very
important of the many forces which constitute his school lies
in one of the outstanding achievements of the twentieth cen-
tury, co-education. A large part of the present spheres of the
boy and of the girl at Murphy can be considered as a direct
result of the innovation of this form of learning. Recognized
in the majority of high schools throughout America on a basis
for the acquiring of practical knowledge, it was the outgrowth
of progressing and enlarging methods of education, and is
now one of the chief characteristics of a progressing school
and of a progressing county, as we can justly term ours, both
school and county, today.
Not only is it another part of Murphy education--which,
we repeat, can be made to mean as much or as little as one
desires--but this co-existence of boys and girls in the same
institution also makes possible many things which would not
otherwise be possible. Co-operating together, the two have
enlarged the provinces of Murphians' world to include every-
thing from the wholesomely energetic to a conscientious con-
sideration of their duties and obligation in today's world.
To analyze this force would be to seek it at its two
sources, the region of the boy and the region of the girl, in
order to disclose the result of their respective contributions.
The marvelous facilities offered at Murphy for all types of
sports have had far-reaching effects on their school life. Ex-
tremely popularized for their benefit, these games give Mur-
phians an opportunity for participation in athletics all the
year around. A very natural and competitive spirit is fos-
tered through a series of intra-mural games, besides there be-
ing the state and city games. Furthermore, any hour of the
day one will find them in the library and in the laboratories
keenly engaged in the tasks entirely suitable to the perfected
foresight of this age, much of which they have received and
reflect, and all this with a note of inform-ality and pride, lend-
ing dignity and prominence to their school life and a worthy
aspect to their school.
Murphians, as we know them, have an unlimited appreci-
ation as well as an exhaustless incentive, both of which have
climbed steadily for the fullest possible development of their
lives and personalities. The fine feeling of unity that exists
between them is the cause for the maintenance of a respon-
sible body, which is truth as Murphians know it.
The Murphy High Golden Panthers opened their 19323
football season with a smashing victory over the Jackson
Aggie by the merry score of 65 to 6. One point proved
by this game was that the Brimm-coached outfit was
about 609i better than the team of last year in blocking,
tackling, ball handling, and co-ordination. As for the
Jackson aggregation, the whole squad worked hard and
gamely throughout, but were completely outweighed and
outplayed by the fine Murphy team.
The Murphy High Golden Jugernaut continued their
victory march with a 19 to 0 triumph over a fast and
heavy Bay Minette team. After being held scoreless for
the first quarter the Panthers crossed the goal line once
in each of the remaining periods. For the Baldwin County
team, Hall was the outstanding player with his passing.
In one of the best played games of the year the Pan-
thers downed the Biloxi Indians by the score of 6-0. Al-
though the score was close it hardly tells the tale of how
badly the invaders were beaten. Biloxi made six first
downs but none of these were garnered in our territory,
and two were the results of penalties. Murphy picked up
155 yards on the ground while allowing the visitors to
make only 40. Murphy was almost constantly in the
enemy territory, and Biloxi was never able to advance
past the 37 yard line. The Panther's pass defense clicked
perfectly throughout the game as the Indians failed to
complete a single aerial. On the other hand Murphy
completed several passes near the goal line.

With the Panthers still in a seeming slump the Phillips Red Raiders defeated Murphy by the
score of 21 to 6. The Red Raiders gathered their points in the first and second quarters and spent
the remainder of the night with this lead. Two of these touchdowns were made possible by fumbles
on the part of the Murphy boys. The other was due to a blocked punt. With the half drawing near
the Panthers made their only score of the game. The Phillips backfield momentarily fumbled the ball
but 'this was time enough for John Steber, big guard, to pounce on the ball on the 25 yard line. By
means of two thrusts through the line and a pass the ball was moved down to Phillips' five yard line.
The offense was stopped here twice but on the third War1'en threw a pass to Mitchell Cunningham,
who made a beautiful catch over the goal. The Panthers missed several scoring chances when their
aerials fell into the arms of the opposing team. In the line the two Kamphius brothers dominated
the tackles, while Cunningham turned in a fine game both on the defense and offense.
Journeying to Montgomery the Panthers received another defeat at the hands of the Sidney
Lanier Poets. Although the game ended with the Poets out in front by the score of 24-2 the boys from
our Blue and Gold School held the Montgomery team to one score for three quarters but the Pan-
thers, minus several of their players, were unable to cope with the power displayed by Sidney Lanier
as they pushed across three touchdowns in the final quarter.
Denmark, Hancock, Houston, King, McGilberry, Monteil.
Before a capacity crowd the Panthers dumped a
bombshell in the local sport circles by completely blast-
ing the McGill Yellow Jackets from the City Prep throne
by the score of 12 to 7, thereby gaining one leg on the
City Championship. Entering the game as the underdog,
the Panthers decidedly overwhelmed the Jackets with
one of the most powerful attacks a Blue and Gold team
has displayed in years. With the entire team playing as
one unit the Panthers were never headed. After an ex-
change of punts in the first quarter McGill kicked out of
bounds on the Murphy 36. Emory Warren started the
ball to rolling with an eleven yard smash through the
line. Then Wilson, Pooler, and Pennington carried the
mail to the Jacket's twenty yard line, but here McGill's
defense stiffened. After two atttempts at the line War-
ren dropped back and rifled a pass to Wilson who sped
to the two yard line. On the next play Warren went over
for the score. The second half found the Panthers dis-
playing their defensive ability in a big way. McGill car-
ried the ball to our seven yard line, but here the Panthers
held and received the ball on downs. McGill came right
back to the 18 yard line and threw one too many passes
as Wallace Pennington nabbed one of MacFarlane's pass-
es and romped 88 yards unmolested to a touchdown. The
remainder of the game was spent defending our goal,
and in the closing minutes McGill racked up their only
score against Murphy. To give the credit for this victory
to one person would be impossible for without Warren's
passing and running, Wilson's fierce blocking, Pooler's
running, Pennington's calling of the plays, and the stal-
wart defensive and offensive play of the entire line the
score might have been in the other team's favor.
The last remaining obstacle in the path of the City
Championship was removed by the Panthers when the
heroic Murphy players humbled the Wrights Cadets by
the score of 32 to 7. With 10,000 cheering fans in the
stands the Panthers made this City Championship pos-
sible with an overwhelming display of power and more
power which could spell only one thing for their oppon-
ents--defeat. The entire Murphy team had power to
burn and the same goes for the line. Although the Cadets
racked up the first score they did not hold the advan-
tage long and once the Murphy boys started rolling they
were almost unstoppable. The Murphy line might well
have been called the "Seven Walls of Granite" both on
the defense and the offense, for when it was necessary
they opened holesg and when the going became hzird,
they broke through to bottle up their opponent's plays.
After the first score the Panthers bounced right back
with their devastating power. The final score will tell
you to what extent their power was shown. Fine line
play by Mitchell Cunningham. Carlton Baker, Jack Rich-
ards, Jake Kamphius, Andrew McGilliberry, John Kam-
phius, Ray Hancock and Billy Touart proved the undoing
and downfall of the Cadets. In the backfield the names
of Pennington, Benton, Pooler and Warren cannot be
forgotten. Pennington with his fierce blocking, Benton
with his elusive ball carrying, Pooler with his fast end
sweeps, ,and Warren with his pile-driving 1'uns through
the center of the line proved their ability as ball players.
These Panthers were not to be denied a City Champion-
ship by any group of U. M. S. players. Once rolling the
boys went to town with a tremendous display of talent
and power. Splendid blocking, good tackling, and fine
quarterbacking were very much in evidence throughout
the night. Again as in the McGill game a singular in-
dividual star cannot be named but the most spectacular
play can be named. The play occurred near the close of
the game when on a cross between every reverse known,
Porter King emerged out of the line and before the fans
or even the Cadets knew, he had raced 80 yards to a
touchdown. Murphy won hands down but the fighting
spirit of the entire U. S. M. squad is not to be forgotten.
Overcome by the powerful Panthers they never stopped
fighting until the pistol was fired.
The 1940 basketball season was
ushered in with a victory over the
Millry quintet by the score of 44-6.
Murphy had control of the contest
from the opening whistle, with Glen
Wilson taking down scoring honors
with thirteen points. Carl Benton was
runner-up with eight points. Clolin-
ger and Carr played fine defensive
Murphy played host to Fruitdale
and sent the out-of-town boys home
smarting under a 39-7 defeat. Bon-
ser and Carr led the scoring spree.
Wilson and Clolinger also turned in
fine floor games.
The Panthers met their first de-
feat when they encountered the
strong McGill team on the C. Y. O.
Court. Murphy was unable to get go-
ing until the third quarter, and the
lead of McGill was too much to over-
come. Murphy's style of play was
greatly handicapped by the size of
the McGill Court. Carl Benton was
high point man with nine points and
Jerry Pooler was next with three
points. The outstanding defensive
game was also displayed by Pooler.
For McGill, Weinacker and Balthrop
were the offensive stars.
Murphy came right back to down
Foley 48-17. Wilson again led the of-
fense vvith fourteen points and Louis
Salmon followed with eight points.

Traveling to Robertsdale Murphy defeated the home team by the score of
48-26. The Panthers gathered a good lead in the first half and rather coasted
the second half. Benton paced Murphy with twelve points While Wilson and
Salmon closely followed. Howard Clolinger played a great defensive game.
Sawyer led Robertsdale with ten points.
Murphy next met Wright's in one of the most exciting games played this
year and barely sneaked out a 32-31 win. The game was closely contested
throughout with neither team able to establish a good lead. Benton led the
scoring with ten points. Warren and Clolinger each netted six pointsg Pooler,
Warren and Clolinger played bang-up defensive games. Martin and Newell
scored practically all the Wright's points.
Woodlawn handed Murphy its second defeat by the close score of 28-23.
The game was closely fought with Woodlawn pulling away in the fourth quar-
ter. Benton and Pooler were the offensive stars and Clolinger the defensive star.
Parker was the outstanding player for Woodlawn.
Murphy met Biloxi in the Biloxi gymnasium and barely eked out a win.
The game, which ended with Murphy ahead 26-22, was a close and exciting one
with the Panthers piling up a lead in the first half and barely coasting to vic-
tory. Pooler led the scorers with twelve points, and Demourelle led Biloxi with

Still on the road, Murphy journeyed to Pensacola and came home with
a 31-23 victory tucked away in the books. Pooler led the Murphy boys with
ten points and Benton was next with six points.
Murphy kept pace in the City Basketball Race with a decisive victory
over UMS by the score of 38-21. Playing a remarkable defensive game and fea-
turing a fast breaking offensive with accurate passing among the players, the
Panthers were masters of the situation. With Pooler and Clolinger intercepting
passes and passing it to teammates Wilson and Benton, the Murphy boys dis-
played a winning spirit of coordination.
Clolinger, Dennis, Norton.
Murphy defeated Fairhope by the close score of 39-31 in a well played
game. The Panthers had to withstand a bid by Fairhope in the fourth quarter
to win. Pooler, Warren and Benton played good games for Murphy, and Nel-
son was Fairhope's best performer.
Phillips downed Murphy in their gymnasium 43-32 in a slow game. Phil-
lips, playing on a famili-ar court, overwhelmed Murphy in the first half by a
20-7 count, but Murphy improved rapidly in the second half and pushed the
Phillips team. Benton, with thirteen points, led Murphy while Pooler, Warren,
Dennis, and Clolinger played creditable ball. Peterson led Phillips with sixteen
Woodlawn barely defeated Murphy 35-32 with a spirited third quarter
rally. Murphy led for two quarters but the Woodlawners forged ahead in the
third quarter and clung to their tiny lead. Benton and Wilson were the lead-
ing scorers, and Pooler, Clolinger, Warren and Dennis took over the defensive
duties. Parker, lanky center, led the Colonels to victory.
Murphy threw the City Basketball Crown into a tie with a convincing 31-
22 victory over the McGill Jackets. Playing like inspired, victory-hungry ath-
letes, the Panthers were wirey, cagey, and spirited throughout the contest.
They did everything correct, while McGill did everything seemingly incorrect.
Pooler was the outstanding player with his expert ball handling and passing.
Benton led the scoring with twelve points and aided Clolinger and Warren in
defensive work. Milton and Balthrop played swell games for McGill. '
The UMQS Cadets came right back to defeat Murphy 31-21. The Panthers
usual passing plays failed to-click,-and .their floor game was halted complete-
ly. Pooler and Benton led the Panthers, while Messrs. Martin, Burton and New-
ell were the stars of the smooth and perfectly functioning Cadets.
Murphy swamped Foley 48-25 in another one-sided contest. The Pan-
thers, showing precision and coolness under fire, and paced by Jerry Pooler,
completely outclassed the Foley boys. The Panthers checked in every depart-
ment despite the valued efforts of C. Blackwell and Howell of the Foley quintet.
Pensacola proved that the tiger can be tough to beat as they barely were
nosed out by the score of 29-27. A last minute shot by Pooler proved the de-
ciding margin of victory. Clolinger was Murphy's best performer. For Pensa-
cola Miller was the outstanding player.
McGill retained the City Basket-
ball Crown, but only after they had
played their finest brand of ball in
downing a fighting Murphy team 40-
357. The Panthers, scraping all the
way, went down in a grudging, inter-
esting contest. Trailing at the start
of the second half 28-10, the Murphy
boys set their sights and went to work
with vengeance. They clearly out-
maneuvered and out-played the Jack-
ets in the final half, but the huge lead
piled up by the McGillians was a lit-
tle too steep to overcome. Carl Ben-
ton played his best game of the year
in raking up nineteen points. Clolin-
ger, Southall, Pooler, and Warren also
played commendable games. Drago,
Balthrop, and Milton were the Mc-
Murphy defeated its first oppon-

The two teams exchanged the lead
throughout the contest with a final

The 1940 track team served notices of their ability in
their initial start when they met and defeated Moss Point
and Pensacola in a triangular meet. The Murphy Thinlies
entered the game as the underdog but in winning amassed
53 points to Pensacola's 39 and Moss Point's 25. Then
Panthers again proved their strength in the field events
by capturing all five first places and three second places.
The cinder men although unable to grasp but one first
place, showed promise of developing into a fine lot. This
being their first meet the Panthers were not at their full
strength. Coach Brimm, however, has already secured
meets with Biloxi, Selma, return meets with Pensacola
and Moss Point and probably other teams.
Two records were broken in this first meet. These
new records were established in the high hurdles and
discus. Cary, Pensacola speedster, sliced three seconds
off the record in the high hurdles while Ray Hancock
set a new record in the discus throw in throwing the dis-
cus 129 feet, 10 inches. This throw topped the old record
by over 6 feet. Carl Benton and Ray Hancock were the
best point makers with twelve and ten points respectively.
Jones of Moss Point and Patterson of Pensacola led their
teams in points won. Earl Holland, freshman jumper,
barely missed a record in jumping 5 feet, 9 inches and
Carlton Baker performed admirably in the shot put event.

The 1940 baseball team started the season off in ch-ampionship fashion by defeat-
ing Bay Minette 9-1 on our diamond. The entire team played a heads-up game and three
pitchers, Carr, Bonser, and Mims divided the pitching duties. The offensive play was led
by Scott, who gathered four hits in the frav. The Panthers next met the U. M. S. Cadets
in a ratherfone-sided affair, in f-act it was so one-sided that not a single Cadet was able
to garner a hit off the Murphy fireballer, Charlie Bonser. Even the chilly weather failed
daunt Bonser's spirit as he whipped the third strike by fifteen Soldier batters. He was
a hole but once, and here he struck out three men to end the threat. Only two run-
ners reached first and both were put on by base on balls. Three balls were hit out of the
infield by the Cadets during the seven innings and all of them were easy outs. Leege,
Cadet ace, pitched better than average ball as he allowed only six hits but errors and
wildness contributed to his down fall. Pettus was the only Murphian to get more than
one hit, while Rice, Kersten, Spain, and Pooler accounted for the other blows. Although
Bonser pitched a superb game, his support was above the average in every way. The en-
tire team joined together to show evidence of a fighting spirit and good sportsmanship.

Every year Murphy High School spon-
sors Welfare Day, a gala occasion when
queens are crowned and everyone is in a
gay holiday spirit. This day, usually com-
ing early in the first part of May, is one
to which Murphy students look forward
with anticipation. There are booths, spon-
sored by the different clubs, to sell candy,
ice-cream, and other such festive things.
There is a play in the auditorium--this
year an old-fashioned minstrel show. The
Physical Educational Department produces
a program, too.
The purpose back of all this fun is one
that couldn't possibly be more worth while.
The proceeds go to help needy students
get a high school education, if they so de-
sire it. Our assistant principal, Miss Eanes,
has been chairman of this Welfare Day
fiesta for many years now, and we suspect
that it is very near and very dear to her
r. King and Queen,
rner and Doris Martin

Some of the gayest days at Murphy are
th campaigning for the
those during e '
queens of Welfare Day. About three weeks
before the election day, members of each
class are privileged to secure petitions for
a person whom they wish to have run for
' - ' f th petition around
queen. After passing., Q
among friends and having fifty people
sign it, that person is an official candidate.
In the election of 1940, when the votes
were counted, the winners of this annual
occurrence were Doris Martin as senior
queen, who chose Noel Turner for her
kingg Ann Lowenstein for junior queen,
with W. C. Adams as her "prince charm-
ing"g the sophomore class will be repre-
sented by Queen Connie De Van, and King

The Murphy chapter of
Honor Society is one of the twenty-two
hundred chapters in the country. This
chapter, one of the first in Alabama, was
installed in 1923.
A small group of the most outstanding
juniors are admitted to the society every
year. From this group the officers for the
next year are elected. This group carries
on the Work of the society until the induc-
tion of the main body of members from
the senior class of the next year. The in-
duction exercise is held in the auditorium
in an assembly and the seniors who have
been elected to the society are tapped.
The National Honor Society has con-
tributed much to the Welfare of our school.

It is largely responsible for the ins a
tion of the system by which teachers hav-
ing seventh period classes m-ay be relieved
of them by members of the society and
other outstanding students.
The great success of Murphy's chapter
is largely due to its able advisor, Miss Vir-
rnellas and its officers.
Founded in 1926 by a group of high
school supervisors, the Quill and Scroll So-
ciety has grown rapidly It has ove '
. r mne-
teen-hundred chapters located in all parts
o the world and twenty-thousand out-
standing young journalists wear its badge.
Its purpose is to encourage and
pupils who have done superior work in
ome phase of journalistic or creative en-
deavor. To be eligible for a charter of
Quill and Scroll a high school must pub-
lish a newspaper, an annual, or a maga-
zine which is considered of sufficient merit
by the executive council. As these require-
ments were met by Murphy, a charter wa
granted to the school in 1927 Th
. e chap-
ter was first advised by Miss Aline Brightg
now it is under the supervision of Miss An
me Lou White. To secure membershi
candidates must meet the following re-
quirem t ' '
en s: Junior or senior classifica-
tiong in upper third of class at time of elec-
tiong superior work in creative or 'ou l-
lstic workg approved by international sec-

And so to the end.
The 1939-40 year passes before us in review. We again
cheer our football team for winning the city championship.
We wipe our eyes with recollections of our loss in the death
of our beloved Miss Fan Randlette. Yet we know that we
shall be better men and women because she passed this way.
We recall with tender memory that our own Miss Eanes
was recognized as Mobile's leading citizen. We take pride
in the fact that the Secretary of State called our own prin-
cipal to a conference concerning the future of the youth of
our land. We cheered Richard Miller for his portrayal of the
delightful role of Grandpa in "You Can't Take It With You."
We almost envy Bynum Green not only for the two hundred
fifty dollars which he received for his essay telling why he
wanted to go to the fair but also for his trip to Chicago to
the National Press Association conference. All year we have
been excited over our girl president of the Student Coopera-
tive Government Association. We delight in the fact that Mr.
Houser was selected as the teacher typical of the title char-
acter, Mr. Chips, during the showing of the picture, Goodbye
Mr. Chips. At Christmas we were happier for having distrib-
uted baskets to more than sixty of Mobile's needy families.
The Pathfinder has been rejuvinated. New dress and com-
plete information make it regular Baedeker to Murphy's
freshmen. The Scribbler's club has been born but remains in
its infancy. Betty Gensert and Raymond Hoagland won fame
in the field of oratory. Our Auburn representatives brought
back many laurels. Our play, Good-Night Please, kept us and
the spectators roaring with laughter. Professor Quiz put us
to shame when we saw how little we know about Murphy.
On Welfare Day, Doris Martin, the senior queen, was as dig-
nified and beautiful as royalty itself.
In fact, boy has met girl. May we personify? We greet
Earl McMurphy, dapper senior class president, president of
his class for three years. We cheer for Carolyn Rosson, first-T
girl president of Murphy's student organization. For music
we listen to Duke Tunstall's orchestra. The words are those
we hear as we leave Murphy-
Farewell, dear High School
Our dear Alma Mater,
Night and day, while far away,
We'll think of you.
Farewell, dear High School,
Great and grand old High School,
. Soldiers true, we'll be to you,
Our Gold and Blue.
