Although a literary man at first later decides the M.E. course is more inviting. He is known for his wit and humor which rap- idly elevated him to the first ranks of popularity. His favorite saying is: " If you want to be popu- lar, especially among the fair sex, be humorous and witty. " The war has considerably lessened his physique since he was measured for his last uniform. He is always obliging to the ladies, but prefers blondes to brunettes. Dances like a war horse and talks like a batter cake. FARRIS CARTER FAUCETT KiRKwooD, Ga. E.M., Sigma Nu Corporal, ' 15- " 16: 1st Sergeant and 1st Lieuten- ant, ' 17; Captain, ' 18.

He rooms in New Dormitory but would willingly trade companies with Jinimie Long so as to room in the " Sargent House " . Takes great delight in building fires for the librarian. Whether times are good or bad he wears a perpetual smile. He is the victim of Cupid in Daddy ' s Math. He is a member of the " Has Been Club " . He looks like a surprised oyster.

S., better known as " Big Jimmie " , has won the envious position of being captain of his company, still he walks like a tired plow boy. Frequently he may be seen plodding his way slowly down Park Street to Prof. Lunsford ' s, not that he may discuss Economics. Political Science, iir hear Prof. Lunsford ' s prophecy about the war. but to wliisper sweet words of love to his boarder. Has to 1)6 hitched while standhig in order to avoid accidents.

F.. better known as " Ish " " . He is the silver-tongued orator of the class and has a stock of expressions when let forth from the stage that sounds like a base frog before a storm. Little but loud. Fond of getting letters from the girls but would eat his hat to keep from meeting one. A deep thinker, especially along " Philosophical " ' lines. Is crazy about Daddy ' s Math, and especially " French " . Our gleaming star on the baseball diamond. He never asks for anything less than a basket to catch the ball. He never sighs when the lights are off as he carries his lig ht on his head. Favorite expression is: " What do you know about this? " PEARL JUANITA TATE Dahloneca, Ga.

Library special and always has some " business " to talk about. She takes a Campus Course spliced with a little A.B. and Domestic Science.

Our star elocutionist, who made a great hit as " Mrs. Ruggles " . She loves all the boys but is radically opposed to matrimony and woman suffrage. A pretty good all round pal. VELLA VERNELLE ASH Dahloneca. Ga. A.B., B.Ph. Latin Medal, " IS- ' ie; Class Poet, " 17- " 18. Better known as " Miss Villa " . She has no good or bad habits. She loves to stroll on the shady campus with " the one " but sad to say she is quite a Mormon in her selection of beaux. Dr. Glenn himself has not a complete record of her victims. At present she is working hard to complete her college course in order to study Red Cross nursing and probably go with a " Ray " of light into France. She spends most of her idle time thinking of demerits received for cutting classes. Her favorite expression is: " Have you seen the O. D.? " KATHRINE VICKERY Dahloneca, Ga. A.B.. B.PIi.

Always enjoys a joke when it is on the other fellow. Loves no one but is a good friend to all. Her favorite ex- pression is: " Well, I shouldn ' t say. " Senior Class Prophecy T was a dark and gloomy day in the year 1950. I had had a hard morn- ing ' s work in the class-room and had returned to my room to read the morning paper. Almost the first thing that I noticed was the announce- ment that one of the greatest statesmen and orators of the day was to sjjeak the next day in hehalf of the Democratic Party. This was none other than our iiriliiant class-mate, B. F. Register. Following his career from his graduation I remember that the year of 1920 found him with his Master ' s Degree. After this he took up the study of law. He has climbed the ladder of success until he now stands almost at its very height. I will also have to tell you that time has now dimmed those sunny locks of our distinguished class-mate " Ish " . He also re- mains true to the old reputation that he held at college in that he is still a Shake- speare on all questions, " Though convinced against his will, he is of the same opin- ion still " . Next I thought of Vella Ash and with that thought came the familiar quotation, " Her modest face a cottage might adorn " . And this is what she is really doing, for after many trials Vella at last decided upon " the one " who was entirely essential to her future happiness and is now contentedly settled in life with her one " Ray " of hope. While I was sitting thus musing over the glad, ihe sad, the good and happy limes we seven had had in the walls of old N. G. A. C. I was recalled from my memories by a tap at the door. The postman had called and the first letter I looked at proved to be from my old class-mate " Jimmy " Long. " Jimmy " after his graduation had for a time exposed himself as a target for German bullets but had come home to settle peacefully down as one of the biggest farmers in his country. I opened [he letter to find that Jimmy was in deep trouble as usual, about the same object. The question of stock law had been raised in his county and he wanted to know if there was any way in which he could make his beloved Alice vote for " fence " as it was decidedly to their co-operative interest that she should. After rehearsing his own troubles " Jimmy " told me something of 1 aucett and Higgins. Faucett, he tells me, is happily settled in Cornelia, Ga., as an electrical engineer and takes great pleasure in joining the inhabitants of this little city in their chief occupation, that of meeting every train that passes through the town. He has also become an ardent member of " Father ' s " church. Higgin ' i name had appeared on the first page of all the newspapers during the war and he is now a famous retired Major of the Lnited States Army. Needless to say that this title is still as fitting as it was in the old college days at Dahlonega. I might tell you that he still insists upon wearing a " military " pompadour. Then comes our famous class-mate, Pearl Tate. During the war she was liter- ally at the front as a Red Cross Nurse and I am glad to tell you that she has married one of her beloved soldier boys and is an ardent opponent of the Woman ' s Rights Movement.

Senior Class Poem Soon will the Class of Nineteen-eighteen Be called to leave each dear school-mate. For commencement means beginning life. Full of pleasure, toil and strife. The Senior Class of Nineteen-eighteen Faithful and true has always been; Loyal and true we will ever be To our dear Alma Mater N. G. A. C. When years have come and gone. Though far away we may be, We will proudly cherish the happy days Spent within the walls of the N. G. A. C. Dear teachers, we will ne ' er forget The lessons you have taught. We trust the future may perfect The work your hands have wrought. And may they bring good gifts to you. These days that swiftly Hy; And may you kindly remember those Wiio bid you now good-bye. But we must leave dear old N. G. A. C. Yet true to her we will ever be. The bright, happy days spent here together Will live in our memories forever.

One very interesting fact is that five of us bear the gratifying distinction of being " Rats ' " together. The other member cast his lot in our camp of wisdom the following year. No phase of college life has escaped the sway of this year ' s Juniors. The ranks of football, basketball, baseball and track have all alike been enriched by Junior quality. In the military honors we certainly are represented in the higher ranks. Every man bears the distinction of a rank in this science. The President of the Junior Class this year, A. P. Ferguson, even goes so far as to bear the title of Lord. A name given him by our Math, teacher as a fit title by which to rank him mentally. Our Vice-president, Eugene Vickerv, is perhaps the most studious member of our class. Old Minerva has undoubtedly yielded a large portion of the fountain of knowledge to this promising youngster. J. G. Pittman. the esteemed Historian, has made the dancing world famous by the introduction of many heretofore unknown steps. He has a great tendency to fall in love on first sight, and dissolve friendship on second sight. R. T.

White, C. Sophomore Class Histoiy OME of us were here even before the Seniors of 1917 said good-bye to Dahlonega and some of us entered in September, 1917. Our class didn ' t get any Christmas present students as some of the other classes did, but we did not need them. Some few Sophomores are real good in their studies and others of us aren ' t so industrious, except by spells. How- ever, the Sophomores aren ' t deficient in military honors, ranging from Senior captain to privates, including first and second lieutenants and various sergeants. Aaron, D. E. — His opinion of Prof. Barnes is, " I don ' t know, though you can ' t tell anything about ' Daddy ' " . He works almost as hard in baseball as in Prof. Gailiard ' s chemistry. Corporal in Company " A " . Ash, a. W., ' ' Worley Ash " . — He must be close to the faculty as he is the son of one member and the suitor of a daughter of another. Second Line Sergeant of Company " C " . Cook, W. M., " Whit " . — Old Soph. Bullslinger. Second Line Sergeant Com- pany " C " . " Holdup. " Cone, F., " Rip " . — One of " Daddy ' s " saddlers and a great worker on the extra duty corps. Cone, H., " Cat " . — He tried to beat John Peyton out in the election of N. G. A. C. ' s most noted Ananias. Corporal Company " B " . Dennard, Roy. — Our Artist. Suitor of one of the Sophs. Quite a distinguished " ladies ' man " . First Line Sergeant in the Band. Earle, Sam. — Prof. Ruge ' s most brilliant and industrious (?l student. How- ever he is a great Math, " shark " . Sergeant-Ma j or. Hill, T. W., " Tracy " . — One of the quietest and most studious of the Sophomore Class. Pet of the Band and Prof. Anglesburg. Also a very decided " ladies ' man " , don ' t you think so? Second Lieutenant; Band Master. Lilly, Miss Mardelle. — Her recitations show that she certainly is no slacker in school work. Loveless, H. E., " Pest " . — It must be one of his ambitions to be Officer of the Day every Sunday. But he shows so few signs of activity that we don ' t know whether he has any other ambitions or not. First Line Sergeant Company " C " . McClain, S. C, " Sandy " . — Our greatest baseball man. Another one of " Daddy ' s " Math, sharks. Quiet but active. Second Lieutenant Company " B " . McClure, John Newton, " Norcross Johnny " . — An active member of " Rascal Hall " known by its members as the greatest Mexican athlete in the forementioned hall. First Sergeant Company " B " . Moore, B. H., " Crazy " or ' ' Coconut " . — He carries out the implication perfectly by words and motions. He doesn ' t care about gates when going to a fire, just runs through them even when they ' re shut. He and " Fergi " converse with each other as " John D. " and " Vanderbilt " . First Sergeant of the Band. Moore, R. M., " Bob " . — Some ladies ' man. Have you ever heard him say, " Where er you goin ' , kee-aed? " ' First Sergeant Company " C " . White, " Coley " . — Does " Coley " ever blush or lean his head to one side? — ask him. He ' s our " colored sergeant " or color sergeant or sumpin like ' at. Color Sergeant. Sophomore Class Poem We have only two more years. Then, we will be " Sophies " no more. Our hardships are not our fears. For we have reached the shining shore. We may travel for years to come. From " America " to the nation of France, But we ' ll never forget the " Sophies " fun. As our minds wander in cheerful trance. McClain and Earle, with smiling faces. Are worth our time to tell to you That neither has found a worthy place. Where one can spit, and the other chew. Two years have passed, slowly away. At last we see the mighty shoal.

Freshman Class History llie future. E have at last passed from our Prep, years and have now begun to do ' things as they ought to be done. The days of fun have passed for us. yV held our Freshman Class meeting in January atid elected our of- ficers. As time is short you will have to excuse the brief history that we are going to put here and just imagine what will become of us in Our President, Homer Porter, is thought very much of and has stood at the head of his class during the two long years he has been lingering among his class-mates. It seems as if he always wanted to make a show of what he did and has at last reached 1st Sergeant of one of the companies. He sometimes finds fault with his professors but manages to come out all to the good in the end. We hope that he will stay with us until we reach the Senior Class in the years to come. Griffin, next to the baby in the class, is always stumping his toe on some hard lesson or getting his finger scratched in football, but after he has pulled through and succeeded in his task he always turns around and says, " ' I am about as good as I ever seen " . Mob ley. one of our " Rats " and Prof. Anglesburg ' s particular pet, never sees an easy or comfortable moment if he is not worrying over " Shakespeare " . Prof. Angles- burg is always pinching him up about his music. Cordray, an old last years friend, down over one of h is books, has at last been given up as the hardest boner in the class but has an answer for every question that any of his professors ask. Baker, our Florida sand-lapper, better known as " Chink " , has been here for vears and if all his studies were under " Daddy " he would be here for years to come. He makes it his study to be on the job if anyone should happen to stick him for anything he is about to be caught doing. Hendrix, the tallest and stoutest man in our class, is always wanting something to do. Succeeded in making the baseball team last year but then failed to get his letter on account of his trip. Getzen, our lengthy boy, the best and most loyal student, stands high in his class because he is several feet and inches tall. Wilson is very dry but a very hard military man. Pierce, a buck private here, but saluted as a lieutenant in Atlanta. Smith, old Hal, went away but had to come back to finish his prescribed course — " a campus special " . Whelchel, our cross country demon, walks to Gainesville sometimes. Think his hack fare was two dollars. C. R. Long, our " Little Jimmy " , spends his spare time giving commands that are never obeyed. " Order Arms! " Ha, Ha, Ha! Paine, the ohl man of the class, looks as if to run would not be hard. Lowe, not very low, uses rapid fire while talking. Christopher. " Daddy ' s " shark, always knows his lesson. Spends his time keep- ing up his laboratory work. Miss McMullan spends all of her spare time teasing the most desperate lover in the college. Wynne, a very hard boner, found " Daddy ' s " chemistry too hard and had to drop it. He expects to be one of the corporals in the near future. Bell, our ambitious Line Sergeant and honored Sergeant-Major at inspection, " Wanted a hat to fit his head " . Spends his vacation in Mascott and his spare time in comming an officer of die day for others. Blanton is very quiet until he gets on the football field in front of some big, husky player. Kelly hails from Decatur, somewhere near Atlanta. Almost champion Mexican athlete. Wants his appearance where it is not. Pettigrew, Prof. Ruge ' s crack French shark expects to teach French some day. Miss Ruge, a very apt student, especially in Virgil. She also took up " Daddy ' s " Math, lately. Powell, commonly known as " Jinimie " . Our baby. Made his debut in Dahlon- ega and moved his trunk over. V ' " Fresliiiian Class Poem Here ' s to the Class nf Twenty-one, May its spirit never die, Let ' s give a cheer, now that we ' re here. That will rise to the sky. But when our next vacation ' s spent. Though some may not return. Still their names and all they ' ve meant In memory will ever burn. Let ' s hope for Freshman Class to come To keep the " rep " we ' ve won. That as the years roll, one by one. They ' ll find us further on. Then let another cheer be given For college careers begun. And not in vain our " rep " retain. To lead the Class of Twenty-one. Class Poet. - w f P m . -mi: a?! " i ' i iM 0 - . Agricultural Club OFFICERS P. R. Queen Professor J. N. McClure President C.

G. VINSON U - as o f- w Q Third Preparatory Class History N looking over some back numbers of the Cyclops we are impressed with the fact that, as they say, " History repeats itself " . Then be it so. The Third Preps., too, shall have some history written, if " history " it can be called. Remember, all the praises other historians have bestowed upon their beloved classes, heap on more complimentary adjectives, and add to it this: We conscientiously believe all this to be true of ourselves, and know that we are the most promising bunch that has ever finished the Prep, classes. To prove this, let us look at some of the characteristics of the different mem- bers of this large class, since a class as a whole is only what its individual members make it. Marchman, as President of the class, has only such commendable qualities as would be becoming to one so honored, as, indeed, he is honored. Elyea, very business-like, is Prof. Ash ' s right-hand man — always ready to " put it on the board " . Bond looks like an innocent child. But beware of imitations! Brown — " Smile and the world will smile with you " , or at you. 3thi It has been " Bill " Maddox— " Why, child, he knows I don ' t know said of him that he is the only boy in the class all the girls like. (Oh, sweet popu- larity! ,) Clarke — Blushes may come And blushes may go. But freckles stay on forever. So polite he never interrupts one who is working a Math, problem on the board, but. the problem being finished, sweetly remarks that the other way would have been much easier. Stinchcomb — Too large a subject to be discussed here. (You know why.) Roy O ' Shields is associated in our minds with the odor of massage cream. " Little " O ' Shields (Roy ' s brother I — By the way, did he ever find the " kind and variety " of powder he preferred? C. C. Morris (or just plain " Clyde " ) — " I smiled, and my smile busted. " He ' s great on the basketball court, but can ' t play football, " Cause Brother was almost killed in the game with Darlington, you know " . Nunnally looks good — at people, and makes sarcastic remarks. However, he commands the admiration of all when on the gridiron, or when acting as chairman of his class. Simmons — Unusually " different " , and usually differing, was elected " the fresh- est boy in the school " . Enough! Arnold ( " Preacher " ) — Has he aught.

Barden. Wright. Pattillo, Yarbrough and Martin, as the echo comes back from the main building, " Fres-s-sh mea-ea-eat! " To these we will say, however, that the privilege of being a rat at N. G. A. C. comes to one but once in life, (for which they should be truly thankful). In closing this long histoiy of a large and wonderful class, let us remind you that, as we bid farewell to the Prep, classes forever, and are promoted to Freshmen, we may he looked upon by some as the " Freshies of the Fresh " , but this certainly will not l;e in keeping with the true sentiment this class entertains relative to itself! The Historian. Third Preparatory Class Poem The class known as Tliird Prep. Is the one with the best " rep " : They always keep the rule. And are the pride of the whole school. In our books we have won fame. And put all the other classes to shame; Prof. . sh thinks we are A-No.-l. As we have proved what can be done. Our class leads in Athletics, too. And without our boys, what would the band do? In Domestic Science, too, we shine. For our girls can cook fine. Class Poet. . V ; :?o?s ' Second Preparatory Class Register INCE the beginning of school in September, the Second Preparatory Class has had many compliments on its fine behavior and the working spirit of the boys and girls; especially while in Miss Logan ' s room. Under Prof. Gaillard you are considered a poor student of the Second Prep, if you make less than 94. The only professor we do not get along with is Professor Lunsford. In athletics we are well on the map with three ' Varsity football men and a representative in basketball. Baseball is going to have a few of us also. Avery, T. E. — Usually called " Colonel " for his military ability and form. He made a good " Rat " last year, so he believes in " Rats " . Barett, H. S. good " Rat " . -The largest boy in our large class, but he never gets mad. A Christopher, L. J. — Very studious. Math, shark. Davis, W. P. — The best looking boy in the class!?). Davis, H. P. — Sick book special. Very studious. Gay, W. R. — Called " Jap " or " Socks " . Jap from his eyes and socks from the number of socks he ordered from the army last year. HoGAN, J. F. — From Hogansville. Very fond of Ash ' s Math. He is the rankest member of our class, as he is a sergeant. Called " Jep " for short. HoLDEN, F. C. — The boy who tried to build a fire under the radiator but could not find the chimney. It is also said that he tried to blow out the electric light and not succeeding put it in the drawer so he could go to sleep. Holt, H. F. — One of our most studious boys. Kennett — Cousin to Jack Kennett, the well-known " Rat " of 1916. Very stu- dious. Lee, J. S. — Hogs on grits and gravy. He has gained forty pounds. Lilly, 0. — The smallest but smartest boy in our large class. Mason, M. F. — So thin he has to drink muddy water. Always " Fussing " with Prof. Lunsford. Morris, H. F. — Our very popular and much liked (especially among the girls), ' Varsity football captain for 1918. Vice-president of our class. Always full of humor. Morris, G. — From Marietta. Very good looking and a good old sport. Nicholson, C. — If we could buy him for what he is worth and sell him for what he sounds like he is worth we could pay for the Cyclops. . l? Phillips, S. F. — Better known as " Pretty " is very studious, much to the pleas- ure of the boys who copy. Pike, C. D. — From Jacksonville. Too much said. Powell, W. H. — He talks like someone had put a rubber band around his wind pipe. Rogers, H. P. — Usually the bulls-eye of a well shot pitcher of water from " Daddy " . Called " Happy " for short. RuGE, A. — Next to the smallest boy in our class; he is with us. but his feet are due in the Senior Class. Slade, a. J. — Our star ' Varsity football end and a good fellow, but his " tickle box " gets turned over real often, and laughs is not the name for it. Smiley, Jack — Our much liked ' Varsity football center. Smith, Ed — Called " Pinkey " on account of his rather red hair. He likes to chew the major ' s ears, so they have it. Promising material for tackle for our next year ' s team. Tatlm. J.

C. has any clan of midnight raiders won the lusting fame and reputation of these fearless " Rascals " , lead by " John McClure and Col. T. E. Avery " , and in the brief space allotted to my sketch I am unable to begin to enumerate their many raids. They have certainly one and all been inspired for the last seven months by their appropriate motto: " If we Test we rust " , and they have lived nobly up to that motto. ■ It is one o ' clock in the morning and all is well, but suddenly Companies " A " and " B " are awakened by the cry, " Feet on the floor, something is wrong " . An of- ficer rushes into his hall to catch some one running in the barracks, but instead he trips up over a strav dog with some fifteen or twenty cans tied fast to his tail. He knows that Rascal Hall is on the war path, so he gives the dog the " high sign " and goes back to bed. They are never reported individually for any offense, but instead a special form of report is made out which includes just Rascal Hall. They are now rushing the season with six perfectly sleek heads which resemble peeled onions, and the new side step Hoodoo dance which was introduced and is led by Col. Avery, is now a regular performance before drill every day. The following is a brief reference to the members: Col. Avery either wins or breaks the heart of every lady he corresponds with, but he never cares to meet any of them. He is now conducting a series of Evangelis- tic Sermons throughout the Barracks in an effort to save the lost ones. His text, however, is, " Brethren do as I say, and not as I do " . Jack Smiley has set a new record for moving and remcrving more rocks from " Daddy ' s " field than all the rest of his fellow Clansmen. He is a sand eater and has all ready arranged a contract with the Government to move the sand from a large desert, where he will then plant an orchard of Century Plants, and he and Red Smith are to make their life profession picking the blooms from these Century Plants. Red Smith, better known as " Pink " is a sweet little red headed boy, with a sleek scarlet red face which resembles very closely the skin of a blood red beet. His hobby is a wheel-barrow, a bean pole, and a hard-headed mule. John McClure tried to get " Daddy " Barnes to refund his breakage fee in order that he might go to the punch board and get his girl a box of candy. His profession will be digging pomegranates. He is a society man of Rascal Hall, and has a pecu- liar habit of talking in his sleep and once claimed that he was related to Woodrow Wilson. Davenport, better known as " Possum " , swears when he is awake and prays in his sleep. He went to bed one night feeling perfectly peaceable and meditating over his future, only to wake up with one of Col. Avery ' s stray dogs lying beside him. He says he is engaged to the beautiful daughter of a prominent post hole digger. Duggan, our " Smiling Jesus " sleeps with his mouth and eyes both open and one of his toes in his watchpocket. He is the prosecuting attorney when the members are tried for not creating enough disturbance after taps. Hats off to Rascal Hall! Written by Lord A. P. FERGUSON.

Left Tackle Brown Right Tackle Slade Left End Griffin Right End Fowler Right Half Back Defoor Left Half Back Emmett Right Half Back Morris Quarter Back NuNNALLY Quarter Back Wynne Full Back C. B. Wray Coach Football History in ! HE football team which represented N. G. A. C. during the season of 1917 was indeed a machine which deserves much comment. Although only a few of last year ' s veterans were back, the new material rounded into splendid form early in the season. At the beginning of the season the canvas for a fast backfield looked just a bit gloomy. But our highest hoper- uere soon satisfied by a host of brilliant half backs and quarters who later car- ried the blue and white to glory by those brilliant broken field dashes which were features of every game. Our line was composed of that sturdy and determined class of warriors who never stop fighting until the final whistle. And time after time our opponents would charge that stone wall defense only to be thrown back in despair. The line alwavs gave a good account of itself in the |)inches. Often when gloomy de- feat seemed to be hovering over the blue and white the cheering side-lines would send up that old refrain " Hold line, hold! " and with grim determination spelled on every face more than once we have seen them rally behind the old college spirit, and snatch a victory from the very jaws of defeat. A remark made by a visitor on the side-lines at one of the games serves as a striking illustration of what our team was. After wit- nessing the first half the visitor remarked, " What Dahlonega ever lacks in science and team-work is more than made up by ' that win or die spirit ' which seems to fill every member of the team " . Some opponents dreaded the task of breaking our line; others dreaded the task of stopping our backfield; but one and all alike dreaded the price of a victory over that fighting spirit that doesn ' t know when or how to lose. The following is a short reference to the members of the strong machine of 1917. Smiley at center was a demon of determination, and few men of his size have the speed and ability with which he is possessed. His team-mates always rallied when right in the midst of the fight he shouted, " GIV ' EM BOYS " . Gober at right guard was a long, rangy player who could always be counted on for a consistent game. W. M. Hopkins at left guard always played that cool and steady game which spells success. Blanton at left guard was always relied on for a steady and determined fight. Brown at left tackle would not need a word of introduction if the public could only know him as well as those opponents who never escaped his deadly tackle. This brings us to Capt. Long. If the praise and thanks for a successful season deserves to be given to any one man they would certainly go to Capt. Long. His name became the watch- word through the football season in the camps of our opponents. He kept a fighting spirit in his men not by what he said, but by the game he always played. There was no better Prep, tackle in the State than Jimmie Long. At end Slade played a good game. His speed and side stepping ability made him a puzzle to his opponents. Grif- fin at left end was beyond a doubt the speed demon of the team. He often side stepped and dodged his opponents, going almost the length of the field with one of his broken field runs. Lunsford won an upper berth on the team and the lasting confidence of the side-line by his fighting spirit. Wynne at full back needs no introduction to the public whose good fortune it was to see him play. He never lost his head, even when odds were against him, and the line he charged never failed to sway. Nun- nally at quarter back played a splendid game. He is speedy and knows the game well. H. J. Morris played at left half a game which always kept the side-lines roaring. He never once failed to fight to the end. DeFoor at right half played a game which will keep his name long in the minds of the loyal football fans who saw him play. He was unusually fast and seemed to fear nothing. Fowler at half is a perfect com- bination of speed and pluck together with a splendid knowledge of the game in all departments. Emmett at half who came late in the season played a game which made the student body regret that he had not come out sooner. He was speedy and devel- oped wonderfully fast. He certainly possesses those qualities which make a good all round man. McCurdy at quarter back was just as full ol fight as if he had been a full sized man. Although only a midget he played a good game. Weaver at center was undoubtedly a mainstay while with the team. And it was unfortunate for N. G. A. C. that a bad knee took him from the team just when he was playing a promising game. He had a wonderful power of crashing through the line. Tatum was a bright and shining star during his short stay with the team. A broken collar bone took him from the game just as he was proving himself an undisputeti star in Prep, football cir- cles. Dunwoody who is captain of next years scrub team made us wish that he was about one hundred pounds heavier so that we could boast of a Bob H. Although Emmett, Dunwoody, Weaver, McCurdy and Tatum did not receive letters as did the others to whom we have referred, the other candidates for their berths on the team can be thankful that these men came out as late as they did. Last, but by no means least, was R. T. Hopkins, who played right half. He played an unusually steady game, and was the esteemed captain of the scrub team which so often made the ' Var- sity wonder how they won their places. The work of Coach Wray who welded our machine into the fighting squad which it was, won a lasting place in the hearts of the student body at large by his untiring services. The banquet which he and Capt. Long gave at the close of the season was a glorious occasion never to be forgotten by those sturdy team-mates of ' 17. Capt. Long made a speech praising his retired veterans for their successful season. After speeches by practically every member of the team H. J. Morris was elected captain of the team for the ensuing year. A. F. Ferguson. p««.. ■BS . " . ' Basketball Team Weaver, Captain Left Forward Ferguson, Manager Right Guard Kelley Right Forward OwENSBY Lett Guard Patillo Center DuNWOODY Sub. Forward Wallace Sub. Guard Basketball History T . the past season of 16-17 basketball was the most popular game at Dahlonega. Their record made was one of the best in the history of the school. Out of ten (10) games we won seven (7). And now comes that wonderful year of ' 17- ' 18. At the first practice the student body began to feel proud of her team, and like in the past year, bas- ketball grew very popular. On account of the military training, this forcing the chances of practice to be at uncertain times, the team did not have the advantage of being under the training of a hired coach, and this is one of the many reasons why we boast the record of this great machine to the highest. The team as a whole showed a great amount of spirit, as well as the student body. Now for the players. Kelley at forward did splendid work throughout the entire season. The game with Piedmont will long be remembered by his sensational goal shooting. At the other forward was Mgr. Weaver. He was a valuable asset to the great team of ' 15- ' 16. He has won the hearts of everv true sport loving fan of the college. In practically every game he figured in some wav, mostly in a large way to alwavs come out victorious. The great- est feature of Weaver ' s work was his uncanny abilitv to ring the basket every time u ilh his long passes. Owensby at guard was unsurpassable in Prep, basketball. It was in the third game of the season that an opponent was able to register a point against him. He has the weight anil speed coupled with the old Blue and White spirit. After the result reached the college from a game played on the road this question was generally heard: Who was the star of the game? " Ans. : ' " Owensbv was as great as ever! " And that was a sufficient answer. At the other guard was Capt. Ferguson. He directed his team on the field in magnificent shape. He always had all of his plays at his finger tips and he mixed them up with bewildering rapidity and success. Ferguson stands high in scholarship, and is a good speaker. His gymnastic performances as cheer leader have come to be features of every football and baseball game of the season, and he always succeeds in imparting to the rooters that howling pep and never failing spirit with which he is everlastingly imbued. Patillo at center was one of the mainstays of this great team. He is young and lacking in experience, but has a very good eye for the basket. In the game with Gainesville he played phe- nomenal ball and was the heroic figure of nearly every game. Dunwoody at forward and Prince at center were light and lacking experience this season, but they played in all the games of the season, and if they are back next year two places on the team can be filled as a certainty. Morris and Wallace are two promising players, they are both very fast and are good goal shooters, and with Prince, Dunwoody, Morris and Wal- lace, another championship team will represent the Blue and White the coming sea- son. Much praise goes to Capt. John Pevton who. at his personal expense, devoted his time, pleasure and enjoyment to the great team which through his stellar work represented the N. G. A. C, and won a championship in the good year of ' 17- ' 18. One of the social events was the banquet given by Capt. Ferguson. The occasion was delightful and enlivened by speeches from practicallv every man present. Prof. Wray, president of the athletic association, made a warm speech in praise of the wonderful record made by the team this year. He paid a high compliment to the ability of each player. He emphasized the fact that each player played the game of the true love of sport, and ended his speech by saying that each member of the team was to be presented with a beautiful sweater as a token of the school ' s appreciation for the great record thev made.

Without the aid of their student body to cheer them on, and with nothing but a determined spirit left we lost about half of the road trips, but after counting the games won and lost, we had a very successful team. At the time of this writing the prospects for the lOlo team are exceedingly bright. Of last year ' s team we have back this year Mgr. McClain, Moore, White and Hendrix, all of the infield. When Coach Shurer announced practice for March 1st about fifty candidates reported for places on the team, so the selection of the 1918 team can be made with a wealth of material io choose from. But right there ' s the catch, one or two for each place, yes, to hang it, two or three of them, one as good as the other, and the other as good as each, and so balanced in every department that you can spend the day prattling " My mother told me to take...- " . Positively the only two that are resting places when the team is to be picked are third base and pitcher. Everybody here knows that, anyway, third goes to Aaron, and Hendrix, one of the mainstays of last year ' s pitching staff is even bet- ter this year than he has ever been. It is not that these two stand out as so much the greater plavers than plenty of others who could be named, but merely that the competition for their places is less keen, while at the same time there happens to be two men whose work does stand out and who loom up as toweringly as the best ever seen in any Prep, college. Long has a shade more natural ability as a catcher than either of his opponents. He has especially a remarkably strong and true peg to second, and he has the phy- sique of a catcher, coupled with proper speed an l hitting ability to make a fine, finished ball player. The race for first base is between Hogan and Kelley. The latter has the edge on the former in fielding, not only that, but he is a strong man with the strike, and the race is sure to be hot. Second base lies between Davenport and Moore. Both of these lads are promis- ing men and possess great speed, both on bases and playing their positions; have a most deadly arm, covering about an acre of ground; field anything from a jack rabbit to a cannon ball. They are good hitters and perhaps they will alternate for the position. Like short stop there are two good, and one of these distinctly outstands the other at that. McClain and Regi ster are the two men to whom we refer. McClain attempts all manner of throws, some of which are in left field territory and this always spells some errors, of course. Yet he does not outclass Register, but McClain was a member of last year ' s team and has the edge on Register in experience. They both are excellent fielders and fair hitters. Thus far White has been unable to report for practice but he is certain to make the team say we use him as a utility man. It is pretty hard to find a man who has had experience at a number of positions and who has done acceptable work at all, largely because college seasons are so short that men are not often shifted about on their teams that way. The original line-up generally manages to go through the season without meetins the accidents that necessitate such a move. White is an exception. Last vear he alternateil at sliort and third base, giving satisfaction. White is a pitcher by trade but it is rumored tliat he may be moved to the outer garden this year where his heavy hitting will come in handy. The matter of outfielder is, this year, a far different one from what confronts us ivhen selecting infielders and pitchers. From all indications. Fowler, Griffin and vVhite or Register will be the outfield. Fowler is a splendid hitter. He is fast on bases and has a good arm. His fielding is not perfect but is satisfactory. Griffin is a verv good ball player. He is the fastest man on the team, has a sure strong arm, is a sure fielder and an excellent base runner. The third man lies between White and Register; both of these men are naturally infielders but on account of the abundance of material they may be shifted to the outfield. This line on the team is not certain but the ones mentioned have showed up best. Games have been scheduled with G. M. C., Tech Hi, Riverside. Clarkesville, Monroe, Oglethorpe University, and several more that dates have not been decided definitely. P. H. Emmett. fe ' - ' f .a ' 5 ? ' y.
