For many are the happy days And times that we have had here, And sad we are in leaving since Commencement day is near. And to all the boys and girls we wish Gay hours behind these walls, And may they hate to leave it, too, When Duty to them calls. To all our friends, the teachers, Who to us have been so true, We wish long lives of happiness, For they’ve proved themselves “true-blue.” Dear memories of these days spent here Will stay, and by and by We’ll long to roam just once again In dear old Tennessee High. - — Virginia Bell. 12 JONATHAN DAVIS BACHMAN Polytechnic President, Senior Class, ’28.

We, the Senior, Class, of 1928, made our debut as Freshmen. I say Freshmen and not “Rats,” for we indeed felt our importance and let people know that we were there “on the job.” We immediately made a name for our- selves and gained the title of the “Peppiest Class in School.” Mrs. Marney (then Miss Rucker) was our sponsor during that year and backed us up in everything we undertook. How her room used to ring with cheers on days before the games! We had thoroughly established ourselves as members of the student bodv of Ten- nessee High when we learned to go up the steps six at a time when the lunch bell rang and to yell for mashed potatoes in the cafeteria. And then, our first exams approached! Some of our wisest class members secured advice on “How to Cram” and we succeeded in passing to our Sophomore year. During our Sophomore year we established ourselves in Mr. Hawk’s classes and most of us prepared for a rollicking good time. Our dignity was severely punished after we had attended several of his famous “twilight classes.” We took Latin more seriously and even put on a Roman play. It was during this year that “Sammie” Strauss established himself as a tooter of his own horn. Sam first showed this ability during one of our Lyceum programs and Mr. Foster helped him cultivate this talent after school. We also felt ourselves a real part in athletics, organizations and school activi- ties at large. Although most of our boys succeeded in making the scrub team, they really did their best and paved a way for better success in athletics the next year. Time passed quickly and soon we were entering the portals of our dear old school as wise (?) learned Juniors. Our Junior year was perhaps the dullest year in our High School life. Several of the old familiar faces were missing — some had convinced themselves that they were so wise that their knowledge was no longer limited to Tennessee High and must go elsewhere to quench their thirst for learn- ing; for others Dan Cupid was responsible, for in spite of Mr. Hawk’s advice, “to see the world first and then marry,” some of our number were united in the holy bonds of matrimony. We also had a certain quota to raise in order to help lift the debt on the Annual. We attempted several means of raising money and finally decided to put on a play. “ Just Out of College” was presented and some of our cast showed such ability as actors, especially David Booher and Johnny Bachman, that flat- tering contracts were offered them from Mack Sennett himself! During this year a mysterious sub-organization sprang up known as the “Solid-South,” which made the girls go up in arms. The “Southerners” ruled the 27 elections, stuffed the ballot box, and succeeded generally in putting over their undertaking. In answering a call for money we decided to revive the field meet. The athletes signed up for the events, the merchants of Bristol responded to our request for prizes, and field day was quite successful. This was due in a large measure to the help and advice of our splendid sponsor, Miss Tatem. How swiftly our vacation passed! We again were entering Tennessee High, not as the cocky Freshmen, but as Seniors! How much that word meant to us — one more year of study, comradeship, anticipation, and we will have attained our hopes. Only forty-one of us had survived the wear and tear of three years of high school life! Some of our number had decided it better to remain longer, enjoy the scenery more slowly, and not to let their study interfere with their education. There were also changes in the faculty. Miss Oliver, well-known as defender of “Senior rights,” was missing, but Mr. Tyler came to our rescue and consented to be our sponsor. Our athletic boys created for themselves football reputations and it has been rumored that they are considering entering next year some of the leading colleges of our country, such as King, Emory and Henry, and Carson-Newman. As a whole our Senior year has been a peaceful one and only a few times have some of our radicals been squelched. When “the powers that be” told us that Senior officers must be reelected, there was a revolt. An indignant class meeting was held and the orations for the “people’s rights” made by David Booher, De Harrold and J. Williams have only been surpassed in history by Henry day and Daniel Webster. I hese rising young soap-box orators were ably assisted in their speeches by a spontaneous “yea” from Virginia Bell on the sidelines. During the girls’ basket-ball games for city championship several of our sup- porters acquired the motto, “stay with Jones,” meaning guard the Virginia High star player, but this was taken up by Stuart Lee to be used outside the games and Stuart, I must say, you’ve lived up to your motto well. Our history would not be complete without mentioning the play presented by the Seniors in assembly. “ 1 he Arrival of Reuben” was given and several interesting facts concerning the faculty were brought to light. Afton Lindamood showed great ability as “Reuben Doolittle from Big Creek, Tennessee. ” Our Senior year has been altogether delightful and one we can never forget. We have just started our life and before each of us lies the way of life that we will take, but classmates, before we leave may I say: Happy and carefree pals of my high school days, May the best of luck be with you, always! — Lucille Clardy, Historian 28 Last Will and Testament We, the Senior Class of Tennessee High School, City of Bristol, State of Tennessee, in the year of our Lord, 1928, being in sound mind and slightly failing health (as a result of our habitual burning of the midnight oil) do hereby make and declare this to be our last will and testament, hereby revoking all legacies and promises heretofore made. 1st: To Mr. Rubins and Mr. Foster we leave our thanks and appreciation for the many sleepless nights spent worrying over our future. 2nd: To our sponsor, Mr. Tyler, and our faithful counselor, Mrs. Berghauser, we leave the peace and calm of the summer vacation, hoping that in this time they can forget the many weary months spent in patiently hearing our woes. 3rd. To the faculty at large we leave all gray hairs and furrowed brows gained from their heroic endeavors to pierce the veil of obscurity shrouding our intellects. We further leave to them the doubtful satisfaction of knowing that their labors have not been entirely in vain — there have been times when we actually saw light. 4th: To the Juniors we leave our seats in Chapel and the preoccupied and slightly glazed expression appertaining thereto. We further hand down to them the traditions of the Senior Class which we have so faithfully disregarded and ad- vise them to follow in our footsteps. As our last legacy to them we leave the great and all-satisfying joy of handing in each term a time-honored “term-paper.” 5th: To the Sophomores we will our much envied composure “under fire” in the class room along with our economy of effort in study. 6th: To the Freshmen we leave our best wishes for success in the long journey that lies between them and graduation. We also leave to them our places in the hearts of the faculty, hoping that this may smooth the way somewhat. 7th: To the Sub-Freshmen we extend our heartiest sympathies and we promise to use whatever influence we may have to prevent future trips to the showers, searches for striped paint, etc. 8th: To our faithful sympathizer in all our school troubles, Mr. Davidson, we leave the unrestricted right to use all by-words gained from us and as a special boon we leave to him all cigar and cigarette butts found in Mr. Foster’s office. 9th: Shirley Selfe leaves to Hansel Peoples the deep and overwhelming sorrow of having to go one entire year with no one to talk to between periods. “ 1 1 inky ” Warren Sitgreaves leaves Ins almost uncanny ability to get hydrogen sulphide from almost any reaction in the laboratory to Eugene McClelland, George Jones, Miriam Robinson, and Dorothea Riordan. At a great sacrifice to himself McNeil Dew leaves his fiery love affairs and his unique haircuts to Harry Weiler and the Talberts, Irvin and Joe. I he K. K. K. (Charles King, Helen Knott, and Katherine Kaylor) wills its excess poundage to Mary Ashby, Elizabeth Neil, Mary Ellen Witt, Mary Henly McGhee, Ralph Rogers, and Lon Tyler. Ernest King and 29 J. C. Williams, two of our most potent sheiks, leave all their love affairs which have arisen within the school to Charles Gore, Maurice Conn, and William Pettigrew. Marv Jane Dulaney and Dorothy Woolsey (who are suspected of having as great an interest in the hoys as the hoys have in them) leave to Mary Elizabeth Bowers, Margaret Hughlett, Elizabeth Swadley, Mary Ethel Laurence, and Dana Smith the job of keeping the masculine element guessing during the year to follow. To Archie Campbell, George Davis, Vergil Dishner, Sam Gray, and Herman Sparger, Howard Barger, George Gardner and Vance Groseclose impart the secret of their success in evading the traps set by the unscrupulous flappers of today. Mildred Speer wills to Mary Ellen Baumgardner, Dorothy Peltier, Mabel Stockton, and Frances Wright a much-worn copy of “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” and a slightly used bottle of peroxide. Jonathan Bachman and David Booher leave an excellent collection of excuses and alibis (slightly used, it is true, but, neverthless good) to Bob Edwards, Carl Emmert, Milton Green, Buford Jones, Charles Purvine, and Fred Smith. Messrs. Bachman and Booher guarantee this collection (if used with discretion) to prove of great assistance in time of need. Stewart Lee, Sam Strauss and George burner leave all debts which they have accumulated during the past term to Billy Kemble, Ray Slagle, Gilbert Fields and George Hamlet, in case these should not survive (or should he “broke”), Joe Cobb, William Ashby and Richard Babb are to assume aforesaid debts. Mary Hill Gammon and Minnie Strickler leave framed copies of their motto “Silence is Golden,” to Harry Lee Senter and Carl Neal. (1 he aforesaid donors refuse to give reasons for this legacy). Josephine Masengill wills her air-castles to Alys Macy Cochran, Kather- ine Ashby and Mildred and Lois Hagy. As an income to pay the taxes on these castles Josephine leaves the interest from all money invested by her in the School Savings Bank system. Lucille Clardy and Virginia Bell leave to the Treadwells, Julia and Louie Will, their places as the head o f the B. L. H. S. “Dissenters.” Junior King leaves a large vocabulary of Shakesperean by-words and his ability to “crack ’em up” to Haskell Owen, William Russell and Ward Morton. Lois Nuckolls and Marjorie McGhee endow Iva Carter, Winnie Bell Gardner and Mary Elizabeth McKee with the charm of their childlike innocence and lack of sophisti- cation. Afton Lmdamood leaves his place as general utility man to the school system to Robert Phipps. Guy Richardson and Conley Henry, who have grown fat during the years that they have eaten at the expense of the lunch count- ers, leave, not without a great deal of reluctance, their places as lunch room cashiers to Louis Kinch and Nila Profit. Signed, sealed and declared by the Senior Class of Nineteen Hundred and Twenty-eight as our last will and testament. De H ARROLD, Attorney-at-Law. Witnesses thereto: Jonathan Bachman, President. Asa Lindamood. Treasurer. Class Prophecy Time: 1938. Time, in its unending course, brings to us many sorrows as well as joys and incidentally helps to blot out many things of the past. However, as I was sitting in my room one evening, I became possessed with the desire to see or hear something of my old school-mates who had become scattered as time passed. A kind of home-sickness came over me, and so I went out for a stroll, still thinking of mv far-away companions. As I was strolling along, I passed a sign, reading, “Madame Fibber, Sees All, Knows All. ” I thought this would be a chance to hear of my old friends, so, going up, I told the Madame what I wanted and then produced a ten-spot which was part of my nightly earnings with a Stock Company, then playing in Philadelphia. The sorceress seated herself and seemingly went into a trance. She mumbled incoherently for a while but finally I caught the familiar name of Johnny Bachman and this is what I learned: Johnny, it seems, had carried on with his dignity until it won him the fair heart of a certain young lady formerly of Bristol. Johnny, practicing law in the day time and “tooting” at night, is happily married — that’s all. Next we hear fiery orations and the bustle of a large gathering and then we find Howard Barger, Congressman from Tennessee, presenting a bill to Congress for the appropriation of a fund for the benefit of school children. Sound of feminine delight reach us and we see Virginia Bell making a speech to the Women’s Independence League. We always said “Virgie” would talk herself to fame. Here the sorceress ceased and the facts she gave me only incited me to gain further knowledge of my friends. Here is the latest: Dorothy Berens, it seems, was the only one to carry out her share of the Class Prophecy, read on that memorable night in June, for she married the following year, after a whirlwind courtship. Whom? “ Don’t ever marry a doctor, ” advises Lucille Clardy. “ He never comes home at night, never eats on time and we never go anywhere. Of course my Expression pupils take up some of my time, but the days are lonely without the husband.” Here I met with the surprise of my life to find McNeil Dew, alias Hank, happily married and a physician of no mean ability. We all knew he would get over that automobile ride, taken some ten years ago. Next we find a great career blown to fragments. Mary Jane Dulaney, after completing a two- year contract on the stage as leading lady for Earl Carroll’s Vanities, has married a young banker named — well, he still has red hair, anyway. Luck, Jane. By the way, I saw in the paper that the faculty of Tennessee High for next year will be composed in part of Minnie Strickler, Mary Hill Gammon, Helen Knott, with Afton Lindamood as principal and Professor of Mathematics. I also saw in the paper the reports on George Gardner, the world ' s cham- pion boxer, having made a million dollars off the gate receipts of his victorious battle with 1 unney. It is a now well-known fact in the business world that the great oil magnates, Charles King and Vance Groseclose, are jointly to monopolize the industry. The two billionaires acquired the Rocke- feller interests last year. Truth is stranger than fiction. We note with pride theg reat work of Asa Lindamood, who has, in his deeper study of Chemistry, discovered “what caused a sidewalk.” He is to receive the Medal of Honor soon. Cecile Hale is a missionary in China, and is getting along fine in spite of the earthquakes and incidentally, the heart quakes, for I found out that Conley Henry is running a men’s clothing store in the same town. 31 Class Prophecy — Continued Here I ran upon an old friend, De Harrold, who had consolidated with Miss Lois Nuckolls. They were getting along nicely, and De, so I understand, has caused the Stock Markets of Wall Street to tremble with his monopoly on Women’s Hat Pins. On looking through the pages of a popular magazine, I saw the headlines, “Speer, Selfe and Turner,” and wondered if someone had gone crazy or committed suicide. I read on and was both surprised and delighted to learn of the wonderful political careers of Mildred Speer, Shirley Selfe and George Turner. I learned, however, that, since the article had been printed. Miss Selfe had at last achieved her heart’s desire and married. Letha Hilton and Katherine Kaylor are holding men’s hands every day — they are running a Manicuring Shoppe on Broadway, exclusively for gentlemen. Perhaps we all have read the disclosures in the “Hollywood Tatler,” published by Samuel Strauss ell, since Rudolph alentino, we’ve been expecting another handsome hero and we have him — Ernie King has come into Ins own. Junior King has at last achieved perfection. He is now under a two-year contract as first sax man for Hal Kemp. Junior is also gaining a name as sporting editor on the staff of the New York Times. Jack King and Warren Sitgreaves are happily united with J. C. Williams as owners of the City Bank of Bristol. Recently they took a trip around the world in two jumps. The plane was piloted by Col. Guy Richardson, of the U. S. Air Force. M arjorie McGhee is now the prima donna of the Metropolitan Opera Company and sings under the name of Jean aldean. It is thought, however, that she will resign before song becomes too in- sistent. Josephine Masengill and Dot Woolsey are the head nurses at Johns-Hopkins Hospital. So far these two much demanded ladies of our old Class of ’28 have escaped the flattering of men. Just wait, though, they’re still young! Recently I was startled to discover that Eva Rhea had turned against her sex and written a book on the “Modern Woman and How She Has Upset the Universe.” Evidently, Eva doesn’t appreciate the flappers. Lillie Wilson has startled the world with her wonderful nature poems. Lillie writes on a wide range of subjects but is at her best in her nature poems. Her recent poem, entitled, “Why a Tree Has a Irunk,” is said to rival the works of old. We find Ida Simon has been traveling in the West, pre- paratory to building a home there. Freeman Brooke and Creed Montgomery have achieved fame for their invention of the sailless sailboat. Both are extremely happy over their success. Boys will be boys. And such is the fate of the old Class of ’28. David Booher. ■4 THE C AD ME A fc- Who’s Who in the Senior Class Lois Nuckolls Ernest King Lucille Clardy...

Lowe 53 mat FIRST TEAM Review of the Football Season Tennessee High’s 1927 football team achieved a record of which the school is exceedingly proud. Tennessee High came through the season undefeated by a High School in East Tennessee. The long dreamed-of East Tennessee Conference title was ours! When J. G. Lowe issued his call for football candidates on September 1st, fifty men responded. Among these were fourteen letter men from the year before. Pete Wilson was captain of the 1927 team; not a better one could have been found. The season opened September 16th, when the Maroon and White defeated Mountain City by the score of 19 to 0. The following week the team met and defeated Jonesboro High, 32 to 0. The next week Captain Pete Wilson led his warriors against the Emory Rats; this was the only defeat of the season for the Maroon and White squad. The Emory and Henry College second team was much the superior team. The score was 18-6. Next Coach J. G. Lowe took his men to Johnson City where they won, 12-0. Everything had been made ready for the wide-heralded Kingsport football team. They found that eleven in Tennessee High a stone wall defense and a dangerous offensive backfield. The game ended, 32-7. In the game the Tennesseans showed more fighr than they had shown in any of the games so far. Another victory for Tennessee! The following week the strong Erwin High team came to Bristol. They were defeated, 12-0. The next team to meet defeat at the hands of Tennessee High was Saltville, 19-0. The second team won easily. The Maroon and White football team was now the East Tennessee Champions. On November 27th. the battle for the city championship was played. Virginia High was no match for the fighting Tennessee eleven who won, 28-8. I he season is over. I he Tennessee High football eleven has made history.

Edwards, Lee and Wilson were the only ones reporting from last year’s team. Mitchell and Phipps are not in Tennessee High this year. Coach Lowe was able to fill these positions well because of the good material he had on hand and he soon had a well-balanced team with Edwards at center, Lee and Wilson, guards, and Talbert and Purvine at forward. The season opened with Crossnore. Getting off on a p oor start, Tennessee lost, 24-27. Tennessee had only two days practice before this game. The next game was with Washington College at Bristol, and this team was defeated by Tennessee, 20-33. Tennessee next played Lamar in Lamar gym and won. 24-39. In a return game at Washington College we won by a close score. 22-24. Tennes- see lost the next contest with Lamar in Tennessee’s gym, 19-20, in a poorly played game on the part of Tennessee. Kingsport’s undefeated “Pony Express” was beaten by Tennessee in a thrilling con- test, 22-24. This game required an extra five minute period to win. The Crossnore team next invaded Bristol and were beaten by Tennessee in a hot battle, 18-26. In our return game with Kingsport the Tennessee boys lost by a close score, 23-25. Next we journeyed into North Carolina to play Crossnore. Crossnore won by a very close score, 24-25. Tennessee High entered the Normal Tournament at Johnson City. Hitting their stride once more, they went into the finals with Lamar High for the championship of East Tennessee. The Ten- nessee High team lost by a close score, 18-20. The Maroon and White team had played themselves out in the hard work involved in defeating the three strongest teams in the Tournament. The first to fall was the last year’s champs, Jonesboro High, 18-34. Kingsport’s “Wonder Team” was defeated 18-20, and the strong Elizabethton, 17-20. Tennessee placed three men on the all-tournament team: was named the most valuable man in the Tournament also. Edwards, Wilson and Purvine. Edwards In March, Tennessee High entered the State Tournament at Nashville. The team was tired out after the long journey and lost the first game to Cathedral, 13-20. The Cathedral High won last year’s State Tournament and they had the same letter men hack. Tennessee entered the consolation bracket of the State Tournament. They defeated Ashland City, 32-18, and Alexander, 34-16, going into the finals. B. T. H. S. played College Grove for the cup and were defeated 16-20 in a fast game. Bob Edwards made All-State Center. Tennessee was second in the race for the “Team Showing Best Sportsmanship. ” Returning home on Monday, the Maroon and White played V irginia High the first game of the City Championship. Virginia won, 18-20, but because the Tennessee five were tired out after the long journey from Nashville. The second game Tennessee heat V irginia, 18-22. The final game was one of the hardest fought games ever played in Bristol. The Maroon and White went down in defeat after a glorious finish, 21-22. Tennessee placed three men on the all-city team.

Miss Fannie Lin Baumgardner’s team made an enviable record. For the first time in many years the team won more games than it lost. Great credit is due to Miss Baumgardner for her excellent coaching, and to the members of the team for the splendid spirit they displayed. No captain of past Tennessee teams has made a better record or set a finer example than did Nannie Edwards. Her ability to get the tip-off and her brilliant offensive work almost alone spelled the down- fall of Virginia, and played a conspicuous part in every game. Owens: Nell’s improvement this season was perhaps more than any other player’s. Giving prom- ise last season of developing into a scoring ace, she exceeded all expectations this year. Davis: Few players in this section could have made a finer running mate for Edwards and Owens than Davis proved to be. A fast, accurate passer and a good shot, she was of untold value in the offensive lanes. Finley: Speed to cover an open forward, ability to get the ball and start Tennessee on an offensive rampage — that was Alyne. No faster, better, all-round guard ever wore the Maroon and W hite. Steppe: For downright sure fight and aggressiveness Gertrude was in a class by herself. No matter how tough the opposition, no matter how big the alien forward, “Stumpy was never daunted. Peltier: Shifted for forward to guard to fill the vacancy left by Kensinger, Dorothy played a steady, consistent game throughout the season. Her work in the City Championship series was es- pecially brilliant. Kensinger: Billy had the misfortune to become ineligible for play early in the season which meant that Tennessee in turn had the misfortune to lose a fine defensive player. However, she will again wear the Maroon and White next year. Neel: Winning a place on the varsity squad for the second consecutive year Elizabeth had plenty of opportunity this season to show her ability. Her work in the role of relief guard was consistently good. Slack: Embree’s height and ability to break up the pass-work of the opposition made her es- pecially valuable against teams with tall forwards. She is another player who reached her heights in the Virginia series. Love: An ability to jump into the heat of the game and quickly adapt herself made lrginia of untold value on more than one occasion. For instance in the Morristown game at Johnson City.

This team was probably tbe best team ever turned out in Tennessee Hi and probably the hardest hitting team you will find in any high school in the state. There was not an easy man in the batting order from the lead-off man to the end of the batting list; they all were hard hitters; they were likely to break up any ball game by a hard drive to the outer garden. There was not a tern in this section, it seemed, that could stop the big Maroon and White team. They only lost one high school game and that was the final game with Knoxville Hi, in Knoxville, for the state championship. The first consideration to be taken into account was the success ot tbe team in the fine development after two years’ experience. It was a powerful, hard smashing team m 1926; after a year’s experience the team worked like a big machine. Captain Asa Lindamood played splendid ball in the field. Stuart Lee led the hitting, batting around 500. He was closely followed by Talbert. The pitchers deserve much credit, for they all worked like veterans in the box. Edwards and J. Talbert had an easy time with the men that faced them. There were many good sub- stitutes to fill the place of any regular.
