FEATURES and ADVERTISEMENTS
Jfmoed 1411 !
Since the outbreak of war in 1941, Tech High has been called upon again and
again to sacrifice man power for the protecting of American lives, and ideals.
She has "come through" to meet the crisis on every occasion, unselfishly giving
both instructors and students for the construction of the world's greatest fighting
force the Army, Navy and Marines of the United States.
It is to these men who, although perhaps many thousands of miles away,
physically, remain in influence and in the prayerful thoughts of those to whom
they have meant so much, that this 1945 Tehisean is reverently dedicated by the
faculty, the student body, the editors and the Senior Class Sponsors, and to those
"Fighting Smithies" who will never again return to Tech High as we know it, but
who have gone on to a better "Smithyvil1e" up above.
It is the earnest prayer with this dedication that a new and better world, a world
sans the selfishness, shortsightedness, and intolerance which have brought about the
present conflict, and a world for which mankind can forever be proud, will some-
day arise with our help, and because of the irrevocable sacrifices made to this
The Technological High School of Atlanta was born in 1903 as the answer to the need of such a high
school in this city. "Will it: live?" was the question asked by many who opposed it. In a few years this ques-
tion was answered by the astonishing growth from a mere handful of students to one of the South's largest
and finest institutions of learning. It has grown in 36 years from a small downtown ofiice building with an ex-
ceedingly small student body to a large modern building with an enrollment of well over eleven hundred
There can be no other reason for this amazing growth except the tireless, unceasing efforts of the members of the
faculty and the will, energy and determination of the students.
In 1909, as Tech High grew, the school was moved from the basement of Boys' High to an office
building on Marietta street. This building was poorly lighted and heated by old stoves. The sanitary con-
dition of this building was the worst possible.
Professor C. S. Culver served as principal for seven years and until 1917, when Mr. Siler succeeded him,
worked with tireless effort to make Tech High the fine school it is today. As appreciation for this outstanding
work the first Literary Society was named in his honor. Mr. W. A. Sutton became principal of the "School of
Champions" in 1918. Under his guidance many new features were introduced at Tech High. In 1921 Dr. Sutton
resigned his post to Mr. W. O. Cheney, our present leader, to become Superintendent of Schools. Dr. Sutton is
now recognized as one of the leading educators of the country.
The greatest "Smithy of Smithies" is Professor Cheney. He is chiefly responsible for putting the school on
a business basis. Through his management of the athletic teams a large school debt has been paid and much
money has been made for the school. The early attempts to form a winning prep football team were far from
the modern winning teams of today. Then, in the true "old Tech High Spirit," the players bought their own
uniforms and dressed at home. Games were played in the afternoon and the attendance was very disappoint-
ing. In contrast to the old days, games are now played at night before fans numbering up to 20,000,
among which will always be found a large number of old "Fighting Smithiesf'
It was not until 1924 that our rapidly growing young school had outgrown her building. At this same
time many leaders in the field of education began to make plans for a larger new building with modern shops
for Tech High. Slowly but surely these shops were installed. In these, a technically minded young man could
make his fondest dreams a reality. Aviation, machine, auto, wood, and radio shops were no longer visions of
broadminded and foresighted men and boys, but now material things. Many distinguished men in all fields have
started in the shops of Tech High. In 1937 a large 85,000 cafeteria was completed and in 1939 a modern well-
equipped gymnasium was presented to both Tech High and Boys High. With the completion of this gym-
nasium many new indoor athletic teams were formed.
Not forgetting the almost two hundred "Fighting Smithies" that have already given their lives in this war,
Tech High is giving the use of its classrooms and shops to the training of workers for National Defense.
Yes, in 1903 a few destined Tech High to be the greatest high school in the world and through the will
and determination of all ex-Smithies Tech High is well on that road, and as the "Spirit of Tech High" lingers
and grows it is in the hands of those future Smithies to fulfill this destiny.

TECH HIGH LIBRARY H
One basic school institution which every
Smithy discovers and learns to enjoy early in his
high school career is the Tech High library. This
library, directed for twenty-three years by Mrs.
J. O. Freeman, was one of the first organizations
developed at Tech High, and it has since proven
itself one of the most valuable additions the school
has. Each year it is alloted a certain amount from
the school fund, with which Mrs. Freeman pur-
chases an average of five hundred of the most
interesting current books for the benefit and
pleasure of the students.
MRS. J. O. FREEMAN
The Tech High library, with a total of over Librarian
eight thousand books, is complete in every way,
boasting a large reference collection, a host of fictional novels and short stories, a well stocked non-
fiction section covering every subject of student interest, and subscriptions to over seventy popular
magazines. To enable boys to locate any book quickly and quietly all books are filed according to the
Dewey Decimal System, and an accurate card catalog is provided.
The library has always been popular with the students and is currently visited by more than
six thousand boys a month-perhaps because through the years Smithies have learned that by
merely visiting the library they may acquire a deeper, more valuable knowledge of their studies and
thus improve their grades. Any student will find that by a little concentrated reading he can
broaden his mind, increase his vocabulary, and gain remarkable insight into any subject he desires.
As a man's mind is the storehouse of his knowledge, so a library is a storehouse of the
knowledge of the worldg and a student, by the mere transferral of a part of the goods from one
to the other, may net a profit of incalculable value.

REX EDMONDSON STERLING HORNSBY
Swim 61444 Jlatw,
Tech High was founded in 1909. Since that time at the end of each scholastic year, a class has departed from
the shadows of her buildings and the presence of her guiding hand. Each has left its history and imprint on the
school, whether written or unwritten. The class of 1945 will soon be the latest addition to classes gone before.
'Way back in 1942 some would-be Freshmen nervously congregated about on the campus and were
finally received as students of Tech High. The first nine months the class was busy getting acquainted with
one another, being filled with the "Smithy Spirit" which can .never be outdone, afiiliating with the different
activities and learning to study. The junior wisdom, the priceless attribute of a school community, whose bark
is worse than its bite, made itself prevalent in our midst. The Senior year which is enjoyed more than the
other school years has rounded off, thus ending one of the most treasured memories of our life.
Many boys went out for the athletic branch of Tech High to become outstanding players and receive state-
wide recognition. Representing us in the field of music and winning letters in the band and Glee Club were Bill
Wright, Ken Haralson, Frank Thomas, Cris Paul, and Lewis Puckett. Still others went into the literary field
and won honors as debaters, declaimers, orators and in the field of journalism. Among some of the outstanding
boys in this field are john Keown, Rex Edmondson, Marvin Wallace, and Jack Banta who help put out the
Rainbow, Ed. F. Chandler, Charles Ray and Harrison Allen who won letters as Orators.
Though the athletics had fallen in our freshman year, we, as juniors, were greatly improved. The football
team had grown in number and strength. All the season our team was successful but lost their only game to
Boys' High 6-0. The basketball team placed fourth in the G.I.A.A. title. The baseball team, made up almost
entirely of Juniors, were very successful that year and won the City Prep and G.I.A.A. Championship for the
second consecutive year.
During our junior year the Military Department was very active. They produced a fine regiment. With the
able training of LaMar Sheats, on the annual Military night Tech High defeated Boys' High in the competition
drill of the school's "A" Companies.
Now we appear in our last performance with the dignified title of Seniors. How much it means and how
differently we view life now than we viewed it when we entered. All the boys started out studying for a peace
time career, but have changed to a course that would better fit them for their part in this second World War.
Realizing full well that our courses at Tech High will be terminated soon, each Senior has done his best to
make this year the greatest in history. To record here the individual achievements is impossible, but throughout
the pages of this annual the proud accomplishments of the class of '45 are set forth in greater detail.
During the great football season of the Senior year, the Smithies lost but two games, 41-14 to Lanier and
40-20 to a powerful Miami team. The Smithieswere tied by Boys' High 13-13 which was the first time the two
schools have deadlocked. Tech High will long remember such stars as Peek, Gossett, Couch, Davis, Patton,
Mitchell, Hale, Sawyer, and Corley.
Along with the greatness of athletics, the Literary branch of Tech High turned out the best speaker our
school has had in many years. Starting with competition between the Atlanta High Schools, Harry Schutte
won every contest in sight and went to the Nationals. He did not win this contest, but came home with a very
high honorable mention of fourth place.
As we look back over our school history, we feel that although we missed perfection by a wide mark, 001'
efforts on the whole are laudable and our accomplishments worthy models for the next class.
Words cannot express our deep appreciation of the labors of Mr. Cheney and each teacher in guiding us
through our high school career and as another account in our ledger of life is balanced by our graduation, we,
the class of '45 carry on.

Q1 seo - 1944,
In memory of our beloved mathematics ln-
structor, Nlr. Fielding Dillard.
Mr. Dillard came to Tech Hlgh in 1936, and
through his magnetic personality, soon won the
admiration and friendship of both students and
faculty members. lt is his sort that do much and say little about it,
that has made Tech High the school it is today. He is gone, but the sacred
memory of Fielding Dillard will linger in the minds of "his boys" forever.
HAnou.n I-uuuusou BRYANT

Harold was the sort of boy of whom any man
or woman would be proud to say, "He's my
His friendliness, personality, sense of humor,
and adaptability made him one of the most popular boys of the student
body. Those who knew him will never forget him, and the wound left
in the hearts of those who bemoan his death wlll never completely heal.
Harold is gone, but those of us left say proudly, "I have lost one of my
dearest friends: I am too deeply touched to say more."
Seniofz 0 a-44 pfmpfaeay
Notwithstanding my complete satisfaction of the fact that Mark Twain's "A Connecticut Yankee" is completely a work
of fiction, strange thoughts buzzed through my head one evening as I laid the book down and prepared for bed.
"That story is iust full of bull," I mumbled to myself, "if anyone can get conked on the head and immediately be trans-
posed back to the past, it would be equally easy for some fellow to get tapped on the top and live in the future. And that,"
I told myself, "is certainly ridiculous!"
Being very tired of a hard day at the pool hall, I dropped off to slumber land very quickly and was soon dreaming of
such wonderful things as an "A" in physics two, a diploma with a Delta Theta Kappa sealg peanuts at a Student Council meet-
ing, and a low score of 69 in golf. I was awakened soon, however, by someone shaking me and telling me to get up. I opened
my eyes just long enough for a bucket of sand to fall out, and recognized, much to my amazement, MARVIN WALLACE
standing at my bedside.
"Well, get up! Just don't lie there! As long as you have nothing else to do, you may as well fly me to work in your
helicopterg mine's in the shop!" His chatter was, of course, supposedly making sense to me, but for some reason it just wasn't!
He persuaded me to get up, dress, and climb into some ridiculous-looking machine he kept calling a helicopter. Surprisingly
enough, I knew how to operate the thing, so we started off.
Once we were in the air, he told me to head for Washington, D. C., where he had a job publishing a new type of spelling
book for grammar schools all over the nation. I learned from him that he was also appearing on "Information Please" along
with EDGAR GILLETTE, EUGENE NEW, ROBERT DURDEN, ROBERT ZWALD and WILLIAM C. HENRY. On arriving
in Washington, I bade Wallace goodbye and started out in the city to see the sights. After having a bit of breakfast C'Big
Mama" HARRISON, of course, was the cookj, I bought a newspaper and was astounded to learn that the date was June 3,
1975. Gad! I must be 48 years old! The headlines told all about a hot presidential race between HARRY SCHUTTE and
LAMAR SHEATS. SCHU'I'I'E was on the Communistic party, of course, while SHEATS was representing the Socialists.
The paper had articles concerning the fact that more liquor was being sold in the country than ever before, because no
matter who won the race, the country would be in such a mess, nobody wanted to stay sober. I also read an editorial about
GUY HITCHCOCK, who was working on a terrific idea about abolishing all liquor stores and night clubs.
Moving on up the street, I met TOM HARTLEY taking a poll in the city to determine how many left-handed persons
also had blue eyes. He was not riding in a helicopter but was riding JACK PEEK piggy-back, which is considered the fastest
type of transportation possible. HARTLEY told me about CHAR LES D. RAY who was working on a universal idea to de-
velop a rocket ship that would be faster than any thing in the world, except, of course, STERLING HORNSBY.
I passed by a sign which read, "Ye Pastime Pool Hall-BUCK DAVIS, Instructor and Proprietor. MARSHALL
CALLAWAY-shark." Further on up the way I saw a smoke shop which read, "Ye Smoke Gets in Ye Eyesey, Weed Shoppe-
HUBERT BIESER, manager, lndorsement by Col. Poole."
Across the street was a locksmith's shop with a sign out front reading, "Keys made to order-EDDIE REEVES, Man-
ager." I was attracted at that time by HOWARD GOSSET'I' coming up the way with his NASS key dangling at his side. He
told me he was making his living running the wagon, and that he had finally graduated from Tech High. He also told me that
things had changed to such an extent that even IRVIE WILLIAMS and BILL MORRIS had finally gotten out. He said that
ARNOLD Q. SIMPKINS was currently working in the bowery taking up collections for welfare and that he was never very
GENE BLANKENSHIP went past about that time, pulling so hard on his pipe that six men fainted upstairs in the pool
hall and fell out the window. Among them were JOHN KEOWN, BILL STINSON, and KEITH ENGLAND. KEN HAR-
ALSON, who happened to be passing, saw the whole thing an-d decided it would make a good cartoon, so he rushed off to
sketch. An extra came out on the street telling about the fire destroying the White House, and that HARRISON ALLEN, world-
famous architect was to construct the new one.
I A fire wagon went past, followed by JACK BANTA chasing it, and pasting pictures and senior write-ups at the same
Deciding to go home, I headed for the parking lot, which was being run by JACK PATTERSON and BILL RABUN,
Cwho were thinking up blood-curdling ideas for an initiation.J They told me that BILL SHELNUT had been voted the stin-
giest man in the world, second only to REX EDMONDSON. .
It must have been the shock of hearing my own name that sent me into a spasm. A lad, whom I recognized atpnce by
his smiles as TOMMIE BARCROFT brought me out of it and told me that TOMMY RUTLAND was making his living pos-
ing for the Gillette Razor Blades Company as an example of five o'clock shadow. He said, too, that AL LACOUR had been
voted the wolf of the century, and that DOUGLAS DURHAM was suffering from too much work, as he was a pencil-sharpener
in a fountain pen factory.
CHARLIE WALSTON came along about that time and told me of his being K. P. for ten straight years, and that he had
at last grown tired of throwing acorns at Mr. Metcalf. He said that HARRY COLE and LEON KIMMEL were trying each
' - from country
other to see which one could charge the other one the most Hi-Y dues, and that ED. F. CHANDLER was going
to country with KENNETH DAVIS making orations.
It was then that I happened to roll over too near the edge, fell off, hit my head on the safe where keep ?ydgBa?0ll:-
pons, and woke up. It had all been a dream, I was actually still in Atlanta, in 1945, and was still going to e g
It may have been a dream, but nevertheless a most realistic one, and I shouldn't be at all surprised to see it all happfn to the
class of 1945. "I-R-E 45

The highest honor an athlete at Tech High can receive is to be elected a member
of the National Athletic Scholarship Society. To be eligible for membership, a student
must win a varsity athletic letter and pass all subjects for three consecutive semesters.
This demonstrates his scholastic accomplishments as well as his athletic ability.
The N.A.S.S. fosters high scholarship among boy athletes, stimulates a desire for
balanced training, elevates the ideals of sportsmanship, develops more outstanding
leaders in the secondary schools of the United States, and there are member schools
in every state of the Union.
Principal W. O. Cheney heads this activity at Tech High and is a past National
President. His daughters, Becky and Carol, are sponsors of the society.

The Phi Delta, organized September 19, 1953, holds the distinction of remaining the most
outstanding literary society on the campus.
Membership is strictly by invitation, and character, scholarship, leadership, and personality
are stressed along with the desire of improving speaking and writing ability.
The Phi Delta goal every year is to place as many members on the Annual Literary Ex-
ercises as possible. This year six members were participants in this exercise.
The social highlight of the year is the annual semi-formal dinner-dance held on the last
night of the school year at the Rainbow Roof. It is at this time that the newly elected ollicers
for the coming year are announced and tapped by their predecessors.

The Tech High Chess Club, composed of interested students who
have successfully shown their ability in chess, furnishes material for
the combat group, the Tech High Chess Club, which enters into com-
bat with the teams of other schools. The Tech High Team has always
had an excellent, if not the best, showing in its many tournaments in
the past years. As a parallel to the Club and Team, a regular Chess
column is run in the Tech High Rainbow, to explain the functions of
chess, present problems for thought and study, and interest prospec-
five students in the Club itself. This column, the "Chess Forum," is
written by the Club president, while its members submit comments
that prove interesting and useful to interested students.

On March 24, l9l9, a group of nine young men met to hear the plans for organizing a club. The proposal
for a social club composed of the finest of the young men of their ages had been given much careful thought and
received a m0ll enthusiastic reception.
The group grew rapidly and was quick to sense the possibilities. They would call their club the DeMolay
Council for boys. They would accept only members who could stand the test for quality.
Today there are over a million youths who have received DeMolay obligations in approximately a thou-
sand chapters, and with the aid of the Masons the Order of DeMolay is doing a wonderful job in turning out
better men for America and for the world.
The Howard Geldert Chapter located at the joseph C. Greenlield Lodge, No. 4oo, is only one of the sev-
eral chapters located in and near Atlanta. The chapter is composed of students from both Tech High and Boys' High.

The Student Council is composed of the presidents of the home rooms forming a student
participation in government.. The Council has a unique position of respect and honor and their
emphasis on the honor system and democratic methods inspires a spirit of cooperation through-
out the school. Various campaigns sponsored by the Council were very successful.
Because the government is conducted in this way, the organization has a feeling of enthu-

The stai ofthe 1945 TEch High SEnior ANnual has striven beyond all measures to bring back into this 28th edition of the
year book, some of the color and interest portrayed years ago, by feature and literature in addition to pictures and senior write-ups.
There have, of course, in this war-torn school year, been obstacles which have arisen in such measures as to discourage the
auf and advisers. We have fought these dilliculties time and time again with that "true Smithy spirit," and have, at last, reached
what we hope is a reasonable accomplishment. The real verdict we must leave to your discretion.

TECH HIGH CAFETERIA
Food! That one word accounts for one-eighth a man's time, a large part of his energy, and even more of his attention through-
out his lifetime. This merely stresses the primary importance of the cafeteria, visited daily by more boys than any other room in
school. Of necessity, therefore, the Tech High cafeteria has been a part of the school from its very beginning.
Consequently the job of supervising the cafeteria, now directed by Mr. H. W. Cheney, is one of the most important and tax-
ing positions in the entire school: but in spite of all difficulties and responsibilities Mr. Cheney, aided by Mrs. Harrison and a com-
petent staff of cooks and helpers, conducts the. cafeteria in an orderly and highly efficient manner.
The students at Tech High demand good food and plenty of itg and it's up to the school to provide it for them. Shortages
and demands don't seem to feaze the cafeteria staff, for the food served there is always good and priced reasonably enough for
every student's pocketbook.

The 1941 football season at
Smithyville saw the starting of a
new coach, Allen Shi. Mr. Shi, who
came to Tech High from West
Fulton, and has had coaching ex-
perience elsewhere, succeeded Sid
Scarbrough as head mentor. Mr.
Shi has already given Tech High
teams to be proud of, and they are
steadily improving under his cap-
able leadership and progressive
ability. Mr. Shi also coaches base-
ball and boxing, and has already
produced teams in those two sports
A A LACOUR that are city champions.

ATHLETICS W- H- DOWIS
The assistant football coach, and
the man who tumed out our hard-
charging backfield, was on old
Smithy, "Hub" Dowis. Though now fulfilling an assignment
away from Tech High, Coach Dowis was nevertheless still a
Smithy in that he remained a member of the coaching staff
throughout the gridiron season. Tech High is very proud of the
wonderful work that "Hub" has
clone in the past and we hope villcite
HggIbElg0i:lC!H to have him baclz before long. T' t '

Tech High was very fortunate . if
in having as basketball coach 33? 4' X f,

Bruner is another member of the V-0 Q "
faculty who is now in his first .,.... gf
year at Smithyville. Besides being a "chemistry genius," Mr. Bruner produced a group of ca- M... K ,g'
gers who placed high in the league standings: who placed a member on the all GIAA team:
and who made a varsity star of a freshman. This gentleman is indeed an asset to the coaching 1 .ff " , Q-. .

captain of the '44-'45 Smithy eleven, was placed on the All
G. I. A. A. team. jack has been successful as a football star
during his complete career at Tech High, and has been placed
on many of the local prep All Star teams. He ran away with
practically all honors of this season, his best playing having
been done in the Savannah game. Besides the coveted position
on the All Star eleven, jack also took a high place on the

and showed early that they intended to make use of their strong pass-

running in that period.
The second quarter started the ball to rolling for both teams. Shortly
after it began Peek and McWhorter moved the ball to the Purples 15,
where Couch passed to Davis for a touchdown. Then Davis stepped
back and kicked the 7th point over.
Gossett kicked off to the Purples who took the ball and ran 90
yards down the sideline for a touchdown. A well placed drop kick
then tied the score 7-7, that being the final score of the first half.
The second half was two plays old when Boys' High fumbled and
Mcwhtmrter recovered. Peek gained S yards. then McWhorter rammed
through center 9 straight times, finally plunging through for a touch-
down. Davis' kick was wide and THS led 13-7. The score remained
the same through the third quarter.

The ninth game and climax of the Smithy season
was the annual contest with Boys' High. People were
almost afraid to compare the two teams: yet it turned
out that Tech fielded a better team. The playing done
by the Smithies would ordinarily have meant a victory
but luck stepped onto the field.

completing a 9 yard pass, tying the score 13-13.
"Born of desperation," the stands were silent as the Purples onl h f ' '
y c ance or a winning point fell wide.
There was time left for only a few plays after that rally. The game ended, the score still 13-13. This was our
first tie in the 31 years of rivalry and was also one of the best games played in that length of time.
TECH HIGH-68 WEST FULTON-0
The season began with West Fulton High, the 1943 N. G. I. C. champs, challenging the Smithies at Grant
Field. The Owls won th d '
e toss an elected to receive, then took McWhorter's kick-off for no progress in the first
four downs. Then the Smithies took the ball and started driving. On the second down Peek scored, and Davis
bucked the extra point. Shortly afterward, Davis carried it over, and Greer drove through center for the extra.
Then McWhorter took one around end for another tally, but his pass for the extra fell short. The first period then
ended, the Smithies 20, the Owls 0. In the second quarter, Peek and Mitchell did the scoring, with Couch and
Wilson running the extras. In the third period, Bobby North, Pierce McWhoner, and Wilson Harper accounted for
the touchdowns and the extras were made by Cheney, Greer, and Jack Peek. In the final quarter, McWhorter and
Davis made 7 more points for the Smithies, followed by a brilliant play on the part of Harry Johnson, who
broke through the 0wl's line to block a kick and recover behind the goal. To make that score complete, Bobby
North bucked over for the 68th point as the contest ended.
' TECH HIGH-25 CENTRAL HIGH-0
Central High of Charlotte, N. C., was the next team to fall before the mighty Smithies. Central was one
of the strongest teams in the Carol' d ' '
mas, an was favored. However, when the Smithies began to roll, there was
no stopping them. Early in the first quarter, McWhorter passed to Hale for the first score. McWhorter then
tried a line plunge for the extra, but failed. As the second period got under way, Peek went through left tackle
for the second tally. Davis then tried a 'plunge for the extra and failed. The half ended, Tech 12, Central 0. Late
in the third. Mack Couch threw Sheppard a 30 yard pass for another touchdown. North's try for the 19th point
was no good, and the third quarter ended with the Smithies leading 18-0. In the fourth period, Mack Couch passed
to Peek for the final score, then Greer made the only extra point of the game. Johnson, Brown, Gossett and
Sawyer were the mainstays of our line,-and a very good game was played by all the backfield.
TECH HIGH-6 LEE HIGH-0
The next team to challenge the mighty Smithy eleven was the strong Lee High Generals of Jacksonville,
Florida. The Smithies entered into this game with two things in mind, last year's defeat by the Generals in Jack-
sonville, and the fact that this game was being played on the home field. The game began in misty rain, this prob-
ably being the reason neither team could make any progress in the first half. In the tirst :period of the contest
many fast and furious drives were started by the Smithies, but the Lee line was too rugge to break. The game
continued this way during all the Hrst half, with no one scoring. When the second half began, Davis returned Lee's
kickoff to their 49 yard line, at which place the Smithy offensive began to click. jack Peek soon took over and
moved the ball to the Generals 18 yard line. From there, Bob Greer was in the running spotlight long enough
to make a first down and put the ball on Lee's 1 yard line, first and goal to go. At that time Peek took posses
sion of the ball a d ed l '
n us on y one down to drive through the center for a touchdown. The fourth guarter saw
only a few passes by Lee, the last of which was intercepted by Peek as the battle ended, the Smithies taking a
hard-fought victory by 6 points.
TECH HIGH-31 MARIST-0
The fourth game of the season was the second one with a home town team. This time it was Marist Col-
lege, the first team to score on Tech High in the previous season. The Smithies, beinjg yet unscored upon,
were determined not to be done that way this year The excitement b bo h
. egan a ut t e mi dle of the first quarter
when Bobby North scored on a fake kick. The extra kick fell short, and the first quarter ended with the Smithies
leading 6-0. The second period also benefited the Smithies only one tally. This was made by Peek who ran 71
yards behind beautiful blocking. Bobb North k' ked ' '
y ic a good one for another point. The half then ended with
the Smithies still in the lead, 13-0. '
The Marist kickoff which began the second half was quickly returned to their 1 yard line. In one try, Leo
Corley bucked the i ski f ' ' ' '
p g n over or another tally. A little later in the third quarter Allen Wilson crossed the
stripes after a short . I h fi '
run n t e nal minutes of the game, Mack Couch threw Sheppard a pass for the Efth
tally. The game ended there, the Smithies having won, 31-0.
TECH HIGH-68 COMMERCIAL HIGH-0
One of Tech High's annual rivals, 'Commercial High, was the fifth team to fall before the strong Smithies.
The game began with Howard Gossett, Tech High's 230 pound tackle, kicking off. After Commercial made
two successive first downs, the Smithies took possession of the ball by intercepting a Commercial pass, and im-
mediately began a touchdown drive. Jack Peek was the man who took the ball through the center for the tally.
' and the first quarter ended, the Smithies in front by 7 points In the second ua t h
The extra kick was good
. q r er, t e
Tech High eleven tallied a total of 26 points. Greer scored the first by plowing through from the 5 yard line.
Pierce McWhorter made the next one by dashing through from the 11. The third touchdown of that profit-
able period was brought about b D d D '
y urwoo avts, who, after intercepting a Commercial pass, side-stepped the
opponent's line for 43 yards and another 6 points. The extra point having been made, McWhorter again took the
ball over as the half ended, the Smithies leading 32-0.
As the third quarter began, the Smithies resumed their scoring drive by netting three touchdowns. Mack
Couch scored the irst two on runs of 5 and 41 yards respectively. jack Peek again shone by carrying the gig-
skin 35 yards for the final score of the third period. In the last quarter, the touchdowns were made by Bo by
North and Allen Wilson on running plays of 5 and 32 yards. Both the extra conversions were successful, 14
Eoirgs being made in the fourth quarter. Among the many surprises of this game were the backfield posts filled
y ossett, and the extra points kicked by the backfield star, jack Peek. The final score of this tilt .was 68-0 in
the Smithies favor.
TECH HIGH-14 LANIER HIGH-41
The Tech High team tasted defeat for the first time in their sixth season game. Until this contest, the
THE 1944 SEASON
Smithies were unscored upon and undefeated. The opponents were the powerful players of Lanier High School, of
Tech High, the visiting team, received Lanier's kickoff and fumbled. Before they could recover, the Poets
were on the ball, and had their first touchdown drive started. Immediately afterward, the Poets made their
first 7 points on a 45 yard pass. The rest of the first quarter saw no more scoring. The second period saw prac-
tically the same sort of playing. Tech High still hadn't scored while the Poets gained another 7 points.
Both teams came back after the half in seemingly better condition. In this third quarter, the Smithies
stored their Grst touchdown, while the Lanier Poets were benefited three touchdowns. The Smithie tally was
made by Bob Greer on a 7 yard drive. Much hard playing was done in this quarter, and many drives were
started, but it ended with the Poets leading the Smithies 34-7.
It was in the last quarter that those Lanier boys were nnally held down to the same scoring level as
the Smithies. The Hnal Poet tally was made on a 25 yard pass, and the other touchdown made by the Smithies
was4due to the 54 yard drive on which Bob Greer again scored. The game ended with the Poets defeating
TECH HIGH-45 SAVANNAH-0
After a defeat in Macon, the Smithies were in no mood to be done that way in Savannah. They played
a very brilliant game against the "Geechies," winning by a score of 45-0.
Again in this game, as in many before, Jack Peek was the outstanding star, having accounted for live
of Tech l-ligh's seven touchdowns.
Early in the first quarter, the Smithies were well on their way toward the goalposts due to the alternate
runs of Couch and Peek. Couch was the man to put it over, however, and the Smithies led 6-0. Peek was the next
Smithie to score, doing so just before the end of the first quarter. Again in the second quarter it was Peek in
the scoring position, tallying on a 15 yard run. Durwood Davis then kicked the extra point to give the Smithies
a 19-0 lead at the end of the first half. In the third period, it was the same story. Peek ran 25 yards for another
touchdown followed by Davis again making the extra.The last quarter benefited the Smithies a total of three touch-
downs and one extra point. The scorers were Peek and Davis in the early part of the period, Davis buckirug an
extra on the first one made by Peek. Late in the quarter, Peek again crossed the stripes for the final touch own
o t e game.
The scoring done by Peek in this contest puts him in fourth place in the GIAA scoring race, and puts
Tech High back on the list of winners.
TECH HIGH-40 G. M. A.-0
A bigger and better team from the Georgia Military Academy was the next opponent to challenge the
Tech High eleven. The Smithies were in wonderful shape-especially Mack Couch. This game was probably the
highlight of the season for Mack. His passing and running tallied many points.
The game started with Mack passing to Peek early in the iirst quarter for 52 yards and a touchdown. Later,
Mack climaxed the period by driving through center for 44 yards and another touchdown. just before the
end of the period, Mack threw Davis a 13 yard touchdown pass. G. M. A. tightened in the second quarter, and
the Smithies only scored once. This was Long's 34 yard pass to Peek. The half ended with the Smithies lead-
R G.M.A tightened still more in the third quarter, neither team being able to score. Early in the fourth
zuarter, however, Couch was in the spotlight again and threw Peek a pass for 25 yards and a touchdown..The
nal tally occurred when Peek passed to Davis near the end of the game. The Smithies again emerged the victor,
the score being 40-0.
TECH HIGH-20 MIAMI SENIOR HIGH--40
The once beaten team and once tied Smithies received their second defeat in Miami, playing the Miami High
The Stingarees took an early lead and maintained it throughout most of the game. Early in the Brst quar-
ter Miami scored and kicked a successful extra. A few minutes later McWhorter passed to Peek for a tally and
the extra point failed. The first quarter score was 7-6, Miami High leading.
The second quarter still was no score for Tech and two for Miami High. The half ended with the Stin-
garees leading 19-6.
In the third quarter Miami again scored and held Tech High scoreless. The score mounted to 26 for
Miami and 6 for Tech at the end of the third quarter. '
ln the final period both teams made 14 points, McWhorter and' Couch being the scorers for the Smithies.
Davis kicked the extra on both rallies. The end of the tilt, however, found THS trailing by a score of 40-20,
Miami victorious. ,
TECH HIGH-13 LEON HIGH-6
The final game of the Smithies season was played with Leon High School, of Tallahassee, Florida. This
time the Smitlges returned to Georgia the victor. The season was finished successfully by defeating this team by
a score o 13- .
The Smithie eleven has shown many outstanding players this season, such as Jack Peek and Pierce Mc-
Whorter, who were the scorers in this tilt, both having scored in the second half. Another brilliant player who
participated in the scoring was Durwood Davis. He has been the main point-kicker for the Smithies through-
out the whole season, having kicked the 13th point of this contest.
i The end of the football season at Tech High is a time at which, in a sense, a large part of the real "ex-
citement" ceases. The 1944 season, however, was for the most part, highly successful. Eleven games were played,
four of which were played out of town. The sum total of the scores finds the Smithies with 343 points com-
pared with only 100 for the opponents.
The group of Smithies who made up the squad are to be commended for a period of hard, clean, sports-
man-like ball playing. This year has witnessed one of the finest ball clubs that Tech High ever had. It was a
club that eamed everything it received.
i Also to be highly commended is the coaching staff. Though few in number, these men have given wil-
ltngly of their time to make the ball club of Tech High the best of ball clubs.

The able coach of this year's "B" teams in football and
basketball is Mr. A. T. Harmon, a newcomer to the Tech
High faculty. Mr. Harmon was able to tear himself away
from his geometry classes long enough to train teams this
year which made superb records and displayed the high-
est type of sportsmanship which is typical of Smithy ath-
letes. Orchids to Mr. Harmon, and we certainly wish him
much success in his future undertakings at Tech High.

One of the most faithful supporters of our athletic program, particularly football, is our Band. The large
crowds which attend these games always look forward eagerly to the period between halves when the Band takes
the field. Clever stunts and good music have always been a high-light of each and every game.
The Band has had a very successful year in every way. This is due in a very large measure to the successful and
able leadership of Mr. 5. Rutan, who came to us from joe Brown jr. High School.
This Spring the Fifth District! Music Festival Contest was resumed after a three year suspension. Our entries
finished with high ratings as always. We all look forward to many successful years in the future.

Tech High's '45 wrestling team was formed with only three returning lettermen. The team, however, was luckier than that
of last year in that it was able to secure more competition. Matches were held with Georgia Tech, Georgia Pre-Flight school, and
the various teams participating in the tournament, which was held in Chattanooga.
Though no accurate score was kept, the Smithies emerged victorious in several of the matches with Georgia Tech. ln the con-
test with Georgia Pre-Flight, the Smithies were defeated, but received valuable practice and made a good showing considering the

The Cheerleaders of this past football season were not only the sparkplugs of the cheering at the games, but were
also the highlight of many grand and glorious assemblies, which served as pep meetings, preceding each game. The
spirited yells led by these boys were a great inspiration to the players, and also put the students into the "Fightin'
Smithy" spirit for which the "School of Champions" is widely known.
The Cheerleaders: Alex Stephens, Arnold Simpkins, Gene Blankenship, john McAlister, and Harry Schutte-all
seniors-were trained by Mr. Charlie Bird and captained by Alex Stephens.
NB" CHEER LEADERS
Practice for the Golf Season has started, and the Smithies have a promising group. Jack Butler and Arthur
Gunter, last year's lettermen, are the mainstays of the team and are supported by Harry Britt, and George
Merritt. These boys are aided in their golfing efforts by Tech High's ardent golfers, Mr. Cheney and Col. Poole.
The Track Team, whose season begins after we go to press, has about ten lettermen from the previous
season. One pre-season meet has been held with G. M. A., who trounced the unprepared Smithies.
The team this year will depend on such men as Hornsby, Couch, Mitchell, Corley, Davis, Hale, and Williams
this season. In preceding years, the Smithies have had winning track teams, and the coach states that the
material for the '45 squad is as good as he has ever seen.
Though the baseball season is still in the future at the time of this printing,
the outlook for it is very bright. The Smithy team of '45 is banking upon such
players 'as Bob Mitchell, Mack Couch, jimmy Hale, Leo Corley, and Pierce Mc-
Whorter. McWhorter is the Smithy who played with the All American boys' team
in New York last summer.
An early view of the group shows a large squad reporting for practice with an
unusually large number of returning lettermen. The team is being coached by
