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.

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- ture. 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. .sauf 1930 1940 1920- Extended curriculum and increased enrollment force commissioners to take steps toward planning a new building. 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. -Four hundred and thirty Seniors graduated. Five hundred and seventy-two Sen- iors graduated. 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 dollars. in Qfaca I On this page are shown four of lho most picturesque scenes on our czinipus, at top left the front of tho Avis lluilcling and lower left 21 back via-w of our bountiful campus in the spi'ing't,inn-.

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 leaders. 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. OLLTC5 T411 IVI lx. J. Clark, l'rim-ipal. ight: lVl'::s Mun liaiies. As." ' ' ' -. 1. l rim- Worthy prai se, indeed, is due Mr. K. J. Clark, our principal, who during his thirteen years with us, has taken honors of which We should all be proud. A main as well known, and with qualities as fine as his, is certainly an asset to any school. Through his lO2lClCl'Sl'1lJ operation of the faculty, We are bound to progress ' 1, with the eo- eaeh year. 2 Uffgm 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. 21 Left to right: Mrs. Fell Miss Broyvn, Miss Green Miss Taylor. EE.

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 . s pu- o the colleges they attend. Everyone agrees these duties are in the hands of a very ca mall -f 1 ie person.

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 USSUH. 56 005112512 LL'Z 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 as Murphy. 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.

Miss Fan Randlette LLIZL 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.

Ofzgomofza 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-.. ' keg? ,f"' . 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 ow. His 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. i s 9301 Top lo bottom: Mayhull, Treasurer: liaumhauer, Treasurer: Flanagan, President: Murphy, Sponsor: Aren- mlull, Mid-Year President: Costa, Vice-Presi- :le-nt: Dorman, Vice-President: Doyle, Secre- tnry: Sophomore Section Chairmen: Student Council Representatives, Nick Holmes and Roy liatton. 1 T512 Z 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. H2512 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.

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. I l Miss M. Aline Bright, Chairman 58 ',t Left to right Q op? Thr Usher Club Ilia S1 rlblsltrs I Left to right, Clowerjz Sophomore Appreciation of' Moviesg Junior and Senior Playerrf. 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 Bright. I2 is 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. I K First row: Brunsnn. Clark ,Durham Wilkie Forney.

OHZHZETCE 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. s topl Accounting Club, Mis Rubirafs Philatelic Club, fLeft to right, lower?

Founded in 1934, it is one ot' the most interesting clubs on the list. lt is open only to students taking advanced shorthand and typ- ing. A1 the regular meetings promi- nent lz-usiness men of Mobile dictate to the members and also give a short talk on what they expect of their ste- nographers. The officers of this club are .Iames Ilotts, llresidentg Yvonne Murphree, Vice-president, and Ruth Stone, Secretary. The Accounting Club is sponsored by Miss Purifoy. Members of this club learn to operate bookkeeping machines. As the club is limited to seven members there are no officers. Other delightful programs not pertaining to business are planned throughout the year. th, More For Your Money Club: Consumer Education Clubg Costu e C0n't uction 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. Ouiagofcf 04161 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. including discussions of backgrounds for rooms, furnishings, and placement of fur- niture. 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 L 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. ns-' x K Left to right: Morrissette, Smith, Haas, Tate. Ross.

She also capably super- vises the Local Interest Club, the pur- pose of which is to arouse the interest -of Murphy students in their city, Mo- bile, and to stimulate interest in our local famous personages both past and present. I 4 Gaia czoisncs 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?

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 great privilege. CLIZ LLO, E 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 Gay. 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- joyed. Row one: Duffee, Daughdrill, Rubira. Row two: Gay, Tait, Spradlin. Row three: Venman, I- ulcher. F7 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. 68 Mr. H. N, Hubbard.

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 hi 115 t bib Nr 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 and pupils, fl flftczfg 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.

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. Lcficz 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- I y h l gy Clubg tLeft to rightl Michael, llreland, Foote, Har- grove, Anderson: lloys' lin-- b t' Cl l 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. 71 Q36 ,,,u.N sa , 23- 1 -. --M' ff 1 K , , . . 1- ---, . f , fe,,1:,fg, .fx ,,kkk ., 'A ' ' W - ' it .

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 Work at the University of Alabama. To pre- pare boys for varsity football, basketball, baseball, and track, Mr. Bridgewater teaches tumbling and the use of heavy ap- paratus. aicaf gduaafion 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 sunshine. 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 Golf. Left lu right: Crenshaw. Lining. llriilircwater, Van Antwerp, Moyv. Miss Hazel Driver is the able spon- sor of the Science Department, and also Dean of Girls. She has been a member of the Murphy High School faculty for a number of years and is one of the most beloved figures in the school. Miss Driver is a friend of every girl in Murphy. She is willing to give them aid and advice whenever they call upon her. Her office is al- ways opened to the students. Miss Driver is an inspiration to all who know her.

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 Q, 5 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. Ocaficmcz 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 l i Q Topg flieft to rightj Miss Salter, Miss Jeffers, Mr. Ward, and Mr. Olds: fMiddlel: Vocational Workers at KL tions' Club. that he devotes all his time to them. Also, 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- ence. 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. la hd .iigcuc 1. if 9 " I 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- zens. The library is so adaptable that it tits the requirements of every student. One person has no liking for fiction. Why :pt-nd time reading about a lot of people who never lived and things that never happened 'Z For him there is history which will acquaint the fact-hungry reader with a story ot' the world life. Another finds history dry but delights in poetry, which is literature at its best. Another finds pleas- ure in essays on which thoughtful men have given their views on subjects of wide interest. But wide as are the variations of lloys' llleasure llczulimr Club. the students taste he need not go away un- satisfied. Beside the actual volumes in the li- brary, the students are kept well informed on current world events by the use of magazines, newspapers, and pamphlets. If -a student is in doubt of which vocation he will pursue, the library furnishes valuable information on the opportunities offered by the various occupations centered around Alabama and the surrounding regions. In the library a student may travel every- where and make the acquaintance of great men who have lived in all times. There are many kinds of literary productions in the library, each with its special appeal. Contemporary magazines and the finest books are secured for the best interest of the school. 77 Qt OUNZQ 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 applications-was created. 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 progressing school. 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. ' 7 Stacia Our cafeteria is an extremely important part of our school, where, between sixteen hundred and t wo thousand students and about one hundred teachers are served daily. It is a problem to prepare Whole- some yet inexpensive meals for such a great number N . evertheless, a wide vari- ety of food is offered and a student can buy a Well-balanced meal f or, compara- tively, a fevv cents. In its attempt to please everyone the c-afteria uses only the best of food and extreme cleanliness is prac- ticed. In are about one hundred fifty student Workers. These Workers are under the supervision of Miss Hattie Gresham, the manager and dietic- ian, and her assistant, Mrs. H. H. McIn- tyre. Miss Hattie has been in the cafe- teria work for twenty-five years. She start- ed the cafeteria in Barton Academy Where she tau ht g home economics, and she has been in charge of Murphy's cafe- teria since the building of the school. the cafeteria there EZIXICLTE 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.

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- lyn Cogburn, Lucille Cunningham, Sibley Greer, and VVinifred Rowell. 2137515 ln-fl pziifv- Mohifnn Staff works-rs. .Iimmy Adler, Iinsinrss Nlnna- ver ol' Mohinnt Iianks Griffith.

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. Murphy High School Hand 89 'ZQHZCL "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- man ,vear enables one to sta" in the club all four years. The jun- 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.

CLIZ "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 Top to bottom: Betty Genserl, Carolyn Russun and Monroe Agco, Miss Knudsen and Mrs. Hamil make-up Gensert and Miller. age snakes, collecting stamps, and attending commencements at Columbia.

The cast included the follow- ing: Doris Smothers and Carolyn Rosson portrayed the juvenile lead of Alice Sycamore at the matinee and night performances respectively. Playing opposite them were Charles Word and Monroe Agee in the role of Tony Kirby. In the feminine lead of Penny, was Betty Gensert, and Mary Lee Tibor portrayed Essie. Janet Hood and Nina Swingle played the role of the colored maid, Rheba, at the matinee and night performances. Jack Mur- phy playcd Paul Sycamore and Ray Barbour as Mr. De Pinna. Brevard Hand took the role of Ed, Essie's husband, and the Rus- sian, Kolenkhov, played by Hil- burn Richards.

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. OO 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.

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.

Murphy- ll,M.S l Murrill-Pennington 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 102 Pooler Robinson Smith gll'lll'!' 'Fonnrt 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. Wzlrtl Stevens-Wilson 103 10.4 A aigsf 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 games. 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. C I H Murphyg Lettermen B ton and Chin. aff 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 ten points. Fairhope played host to Murphy in the Fairhope gym and furnished us with a 26-24 victory. The game was a see-saw affair from start to finish, with Norton saving Murphy with his 'accurate shooting. Norton scored eleven points aid played an alert defensive game. Nelson almost proved the defeat of Mur- P Y- 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 points. ' 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. Pooler, Smith. 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- Gill aces. Murphy defeated its first oppon- ent in the District Tournament, Ever- green, 39-24. Benton led the scoring with twenty points. UMS ousted the Panthers from the finals in the most exciting game of the tournament by the score of 18-17. The two teams exchanged the lead throughout the contest with a final goal by Martin giving victory to UMS. In the consolation game the Pan- thers defeated McCullough 47-29.

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. Top: Cunningham and Kamphius run- ning the 440.

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. to in 5 Coach Willcox, Benton, Bonser. . Carr, Heath, Mims, Norton. V Stumlimz' Uh . V 1-stnut, Smith.

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.

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.

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.
