McCartha passed to his finel reward on Sept. 29, 1920. At the time of his death President Shackelford spoke of him as follows: " Dr. McCartha, like most of those educated under the old regime, was what we sometimes call an all-round man. It was said of Dr. Henry Tutwiler, Alabama ' s greatest teacher, that he was an entire faculty within himself. The statement might be applied, with perhaps equal propriety, to Dr. McCartha, who, though not educated by specialists as a specialist, easily and quickly be- came one in whatever line he pursued. His energy, his mental alertness, and his adaptability enabled him to master readily subjects upon which he concen- trated his efforts. In the class room his thorough mastery of subject matter and his abounding sympathy for young life made him a general favorite with his pupils. His chief fault (if fault it was) lay in his temptation to help his stu- dents over hard places before they had exhausted their own resources. But, like the village preacher, even his failings leaned to virtue ' s side. ' His lofty idealism and his unfailing optimism rarely failed to inspire his pupils with an ambition to make the best of their lives and that, after all, is the test of great- ness as a teacher. " Dr. McCartha ' s vast learning, his exceptional mastery of spoken English, and his attractiveness as a public speaker caused him to be in great demand for commencements and other occasions of similar character; and his lively wit, incisive repartee, and his terse, epigrammatic criticisms made him a welcome member of any social group. Indeed, Dr. McCartha was great in so many ways that I often associate him in my thoughts with Goldsmith ' s character that towered above the average man, Like some tall cliff that lifts its awful form, Swells from the vale and midway leaps the storm; Though round its breast the rolling clouds are spread Eternal sunshine settles on its head. Four Fit , ffliiiiimiir iwiw THE PRESIDENT EDWARD MADISON SHACKELFORD A. M. f LL. D. The picture opposite this page expresses more to former students than any words of the Editor could express. Remember the trials and tribulations, the love and care he gave your class, multiply that by thirty-five and you have some idea of the burdens he has borne through his thirty-five years of service. After having labored so long under adverse circum- stances, our beloved President has led the normal into a new day. All will join with us in wishing him the success which he so richly deserves in mov- ing to the new site. Six Seven A.H.-CW MICHAEL Hon. L.I3. MUSGPOVE Eight " " F nnm ' ii l " " li " w THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION As stated in the historical sketch, this body was created by the legislative body of I 9 I 9 as a successor of the Normal School Board. At the time of this writing (Dec, 1922), the following constitute the board: Gov. Thos. E. Kilby, Supt. John W. Abercrombie, Mrs. T. G. Bush, Hon, A. H. Carmichael, Dr. D. T. McCall, Hon. L. B. Musgrove, Hon. A. L. Tyler, and Hon. Jack Thorington. We are glad to present to our subscribers and friends the following sketches of these distinguished and patriotic public servants: GOV. THOS. E. KILBY Governor Kilby was born at Lebanon, Tenn., July 9, 1865. He was educated in the public schools of Atlanta, Ga., but his business life belongs to Alabama. He is president of the Kilby Car and Foundry Company, Annis- ton; vice-president of the Kilby Frog and Switch Company, Birmingham; chairman of the Board of Directors of the Anniston National Bank, Alabama Pipe and Foundry Company, Standard Foundry Company, Union Pipe Com- pany, Anniston. He was a member of the Anniston City Council, 1898-9; member of the Board of Education, 1900-5; and mayor, 1905-9. He was inspector-general on Governor Comer ' s staff, 1907-10; was lieutenant gover- nor, 1915-19, and governor, 1919-2 3. Governor Kilby is a Democrat, a Mason, a Shriner, a Knight of Pythias, and a vestryman of Grace Protestant Episcopal Church, Anniston. It is thus seen that he is a man of varied accom- plishments and extensive interests. He has made an excellent governor, and his wisdom has guided the State Board of Education safely through the usually dangerous formative period. JOHN WILLIAM ABERCROMBIE Superintendent of Education John William Abercrombie was born in St. Clair County, May 1 7, I 866. He has ever been a good citizen of our State and has always been ready to aid in all civic, social, and educational affairs. Our State may feel proud of this worthy son. From " Who ' s Who in America we get the following: " s. Henry M. and Sarah A. (Kendrick) A; A. B.. Oxford College, Ala.. 1886; L. L. B.. U. of Ala., 1888 (L. L. D, 1904) and U. of S. C. 1905; D. C. L.. U. of the South. 1907 Member of Kappa Alpha, Phi Beta Kappa. Democrat. Baptist. Mason, K. of P., W. O W. Home, Anniston, Ala. Address, State Department of Education, Montgomery, Ala. " From this one may get an idea of his educational and social standing, and it is evident that these few lines fall far short of doing justice to one who has been of such valuable service to his native State. Nine m gaBBmaaggBummmifflma MRS. ALBERTA W. BUSH Mrs. Bush, a native of Montgomery, Ala., has the distinction of being the first woman to be honored with membership on the State Board of Education. This was due to the fact that she has rendered excellent service to humanity along various lines and is recognized as one of the most cultured, intelligent, philanthropic women in the State. Montgomery, Mobile, Anniston, and Bir- mingham have all been her home at various times, and all have felt the in- fluence of her benevolent personality. Besides Mrs. Bush ' s membership on the State Board of Education, to which she was appointed when the Board was organized, she is also a trustee of the Boys ' Industrial School at Birmingham, and of the Baptist Widows ' and Orphans ' Home at Troy. . HON. ALFRED L. TYLER Mr. Tyler was born in Pennsylvania in 1 866. He is the son of Alfred L. Tyler, Norwich, Conn., and Annie (Scott) Tyler, of Macon, Ga. He moved to Anniston from Charleston, S. O, in 1873. He was educated in the schools of his various homes and in Harvard University, from which he was graduated in 188 7 with the degree of Bachelor of Arts. Since 1888 Mr. Tyler has had a continuous and very successful business career in his adopted home, as is proved by the fact that he is at present president and treasurer of the Anniston Manufacturing Company, a director in several textile and iron companies, and of the First National Bank of Anniston. He is also a vestryman of Grace Epis- copal Church and he has been a useful member of the State Board of Educa- tion since its organization in 1919. DR. DANIEL T. McCALL Dr. McCall was born at DeSotoville, Ala., Sept. 4, 1869. He was edu- cated at Cooper ' s Institute, Miss., and Snow Hill, Pushmataha, Furman, and the University of Alabama, from which he was graduated in 1887 with the A. B. degree. He then took a medical course at the University of Louisville, Ky., from which he was graduated in 1894. He next practiced medicine in Gaston, 1895-9, and Butler, 1899-1908. He spent the next two years in the medical schools of New York, Philadelphia, and Harvard, specializing in the diseases of children. Since 1910 Dr. McCall has devoted himself to this line of work in the city of Mobile, where he attained marked success. But while devoted to his profession, his broad patriotism has interested itself in kin- dred subjects. Witness his services as county health officer of Choctaw County, 1898-1908; member of Mobile Board of County School Commissioners, 1912-18, and president of the Board, 1918-19; president of Mobile County Board of Health, 1916-18 and 1 922-23 ; member of the State Board of Educa- tion, 1919-23; president of Alumni Association, University of Alabama, 1920-21 ; member of the State Democratic Executive Committee, 1922 . Dr. McCall is a Democrat, a Methodist, Mason, Shriner, and K. of P. Ten HON. A. H. CARMICHAEL Hon. A. H. Carmichael, the son of Jessie M. and Mary Smith Carmichael, was born in Dale County and lived there until he finished college. His father was circuit judge for many years. State auditor twice, and president of the Convict Board. He attended the common schools of Dale County until he went to the University of Alabama, where he graduated with two degrees, A. B. and LL. B. He is a lawyer by profession and has held the following positions of honor: Solicitor of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit, Solicitor of the District Court; mem- ber of the House of Representatives and Speaker of the House Session, 1907. Member of the House of Representatives, and Speaker of the House Session 1915; member of the State Senate, 1919; Special Assistant to the Attorney General of the United States in acquiring land for nitrate plants; member of the State Board of Education. The first State-wide prohibition law for Alabama bore his name and he aided in the passage of the Code of School Laws for Alabama in the year 1919. He is a member of the Sigma Nu Fraternity and belongs to the following or- ders: Phi Beta Kappa, Masons, and Knights of Pythias. As a member of the State Senate he is chairman of the Committee on Education and he is proving of valuable service to our State in education and many other ways. HON. L. B. MUSGROVE Hon. L. B. Musgrove was born in Jasper, Walker County. Ala., December 13, 1859. He was everything from ploughboy to chairman of the National Campaign Committee of the temperance forces, which was responsible for the I 8th amendment. To his own people he has been, and always will be, the man who never refused to help build a school or church. He grew up with little opportunity for education; and in spite of these handicaps made a con- spicuous success as an editor, farmer, merchant, banker, and coal operator. He is responsible for scores of young people having a chance of a college educa- tion. He is trustee of the University of Alabama and a member of the State Board of Education. There is no greater friend of education in Alabama than ' Breck " Musgrove. Eleven BmB5?gmiMimTi«ig? iiiiMiiiii!iini ■ miuta HISTORICAL SKETCH For the historical outline of the State Normal School prior to June 1 , 1919, see copies of the Palladium for the years 1912 and 1919. The essential thing since that time may be found in the following paragraphs: I. GENERAL POLICIES The most noteworthy development within the last few years is the rural extension work, which was begun in the fall of 1920. Professor C. M. Farmer has been in charge of this department since its inception, and the work has met such hardy response from the field that the school has not been financially able to meet the demand for classes in the various counties within its territory. It is not only enabling the Normals to reach the teachers in service, but it is greatly popularizing the State ' s teacher-training agencies. Another important change inaugurated in 1920 was a raising of the en- trance requirements for our two-year teacher-training course to four years of standard high school work. However, two years of pre-normal work were retained in order to care for a special class of public school teachers. The raising of entrance requirements mentioned above resulted in 1921 in the policy of granting pre-normal certificates to graduates of standard high schools who would complete certain short courses in the Normal School. Great numbers of these graduates have availed themselves of this opportunity, and have thus, not only recruited the teaching profession, but considerably raised its standard of effificiency. A third very important and far-reaching change was introduced in the fall of 1919, when student government was substituted for the old form of faculty government. The skepticism which attended the inauguration of this system soon gave place to enthusiastic approval. It has done so much for the morale of the student body that no other system would now be seriously considered. II. THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION The Legislature of 1919 abolished various boards, including the Normal School Board, and placed the Normals and all other units of the public school system under the State Board of Education. This board is composed of Gov- ernor Kilby, Superintendent Abercrombie, Hon. L. B. Musgrove, Hon. Jack Thorington, Hon. A. L. Tyler, Mrs. T G. Bush, Hon. A. H. Carmichael, and Dr. D. T. McCall. The placing of the various units of the public school system under one Twelve " T-nH«s« f vi«niiii mi uima management has had the effect of more perfectly unifying and co-ordinating the work of these units, thus increasing the efficiency of the system. Dr. R. H McCaslin was a member of the board as originally constituted, and his recent withdrawal caused much regret. Under this heading mention should be made of the death of the Hon. Charles P. Rogers, of Letohatchie, on Oct. 20, 1922. Captain Rogers was, for more than twenty years, a faithful and efficient member of the Board of Trustees and the school notes with deep regret his loss from its roster of loyal friends. 111. FACULTY CHANGES The most noticeable changes in the faculty during the last four years are the retirement in I 9 I 9 of Prof. F. J. Cowart, after twenty-one years, and the death of Dr. C. L. McCartha in I 920, after thirty-one years of excellent service to the institution. Another familiar face not now among us or of us is that of Joseph A. Boyd, who gave up his work in 1920 for more lucrative employment with the Franklin Insurance Company. Among the new names now on the faculty roll are A. S. Sartain, Professor of Civics; Mary Debow Rich, Teacher of English; H. A. Savage, Professor of Science; Annie Ray, Teacher of Primary Methods; J. W. Campbell, Pro- fessor of Manual Training and Athletic Coach; W. M. Hughes, Vocational Teacher in the Junior High School. Some new administrative officers are C. M. Farmer, Director of Extension Work; Evelyn Somerville, Librarian; Mrs. Arthur Owens, Secretary; Lula Owens, Stenographer; Vada Ernest, Matron of Dormitory One; Mrs. Stough, Matron of Dormitory Two. Mention should also be made of Misses Taylor, Latane, Bayles, Nordan, and Agee, who served well in responsible positions for a brief period and re- signed; and of Misses Pitts, Martin, Boyd, Kelsoe, and Williams, of our present teaching staff. Miss Rymer has returned, after a year ' s leave of absence; and Misses Gardener and Segars are spending this year at Columbia University. IV. SITE FOR THE NEW AND GREATER NORMAL Early in 1919 the site on Orion Street, bought in 1912, was sold and the Board adopted the policy of trying to expand the present plant by pur- chasing property in an adjoining block, but the new State Board of Education reversed this policy, and, in August, 1922, purchased another site — a beautiful tract of 2 70 acres in the southeastern part of the city, generally known as the Judge Hilliard Place. This new site is being laid out by Mr. Chas. W. Leavitt, of New York, and the buildings are being planned by Dr. F. B. Dresslar, of Peabody College, Nashville, Tenn., and Mr. Dlttmar, the architect of the State Thirteen - i ■ " Mugj f I ' limniiiin. uima Department of Education. The first unit of the New and Greater Normal, the Training School Building, is in process of construction. The main campus of the New Normal will consist of a fine pecan grove of about twenty acres, with about ten acres more of growing pecans adjoining but not included in the campus. Lying along another side of the campus is a natural park of about twenty acres, on which three springs are found that will furnish water for two swimming pools and a fish pond. Mr. Leavitt is also drawing plans for this park, which, when completed, will be one of the beauty spots of Troy. V. THE SCHOOL FARM On Jan. 1, 1921, the school embarked upon a new enterprise, and equipped a new farm, for the double purpose of utilizing the waste from its dormitories and of producing its dairy products and fresh vegetables. It now has one of the best herds of Jersey cows and Poland China hogs in this section of the State. So far, the farm has been too far away to be used as a laboratory of agriculture; but when the school is moved to its new site, it can thus be made a valuable adjunct to the Department of Science. VI. MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS Aside from the increased enrollment which reached a grand total of 931 in 1921 (exclusive of the 892 in the Rural Extension classes and 7 1 5 in the Training School), the most important of the minor events of the school ' s his- tory during the past four years are: 1 . The enlargement of the present location by the purchase of several more lots in the block to the rear of the campus. 2. The erection of a large open-air pavilion on the north campus. 3. The purchase of a moving picture outfit for the purpose of emphasiz- ing visual education; and, 4. The addition of a car for the better handling of the school s field work. —THE PRESIDENT.

N. S. to open a new school year. She brought with her many ambitious slaves of learning; and among the many were a number of chosen ones whom she had stamped with the mark of distinction. This stamp meant nerve, grit, determination, kindheartedness, and good intentions. And those bearing this stamp lined up and called themselves " Juniors " — all high school graduates or its equivalent. On the first night of these Juniors at the S. N. S., Miss Earnest informed them (together with those not fortunate enough to be Juniors) that they must " register " before going to bed! And thus began their two-year course in ob- serving the rules and regulations. The next morning. Miss Rembaugh, realizing the trials they were to meet that day, gave them as a stimulus grits and bacon. First, they were led before the President, whose critical eye approved the stamps upon them, and they passed on still " Juniors " . Mr. Savage stepped to the door of the science room and, smiling suavely, asked, " Will you walk into my parlor? " Whether that fatal mirror was on the shelf or not, they walked in; and were carried immediately to the laboratory where a chemical change took place, and all of vacation ' s rust was removed from their minds. Mrs. Savage, smiled sweetly and absently, remarked, " Parlez-vouz Francais? " at which they looked askance at her and wondered if she ' were " spoofing " them. Next they went to Professor Wright ' s room, where they received 1 4068 mental shocks, which gave them strength enough to climb the Seven Steps. And from there to Miss Rich ' s room, where their throats became dry from " stumpspeaking; " and were refreshed again by " A Rill from the Town Pump; " after which they were given to rest upon a soft, downy couch of " Lamb ' s Es- says. Professor Sartain ' s experience in the army gave them an unlimited knowledge of history; moreover, his wit was a sure cure for homesickness and blues. In Professor Pace ' s room, they learned that " As a Man Thinketh, So Is He. " Also here they were taught to find unknown quantities — but they were never able to find unknown qualities — not even by mathematical terms! Under Mrs. McCall ' s supervision they became song birds and musicians. Miss Tliirty-fm r E3J Rogers developed them into artists. Miss Miller taught them good housekeep- ing so that it could be practiced in their rooms. Mr. Campbell changed them from frail weaklings into robust athletes. Miss Segars taught them that the greatest part of their education was learning to do things they did not like to do; while the value and force of personality are shown them by Miss Pitts. Miss Hamel impressed them with self-reliance, kindness, and originality; and Miss Gardener set them a living example of usefulness and refinement; while all these three taught them methods of inspiring, instructing, and controlling inmates of a one-room log schoolhouse. These people were well trained; and, in addition to being situated on the railroad, were very near a compress. Then, much knowledge was " com- pressed " into their heads! In books — well, they became walking encyclopedias; knew EVERY- THING ABSOLUTELY! as far as they could judge. In athletics these chosen ones far excelled those not fortunate enough to be Juniors. In basketball more than half the varsity team came from the Junior Class, while the entire scrub team was composed of members of the same — what is a school without scrubs anyway? Nearly all the members of the varsity football and baseball teams came from the Junior Class. Why? you ask. It was simply because that class was stamped by that magic stamp and the Junior expression was evident in each Junior countenance. In society work and clubs they did their best, as in all things — these Jun- iors of ' 22. And, when at the end of the year, they received their merited reward, they were no longer Juniors — but the dignified Seniors of ' 22-23. Of this optimistic band there were about half who caught the vision and remained to call themselves Seniors. Hard by the old Normal they stood! as unyielding as the Plymouth Rock! and, though the angry waves of doubt and fear were dashed against them; though the chilling winds of anxiety and de- spair pierced their hearts and souls; and though D ' s and F ' s hammered unmer- cifully upon their ear drums; far across the angry waves stood the vision, hold- ing out to them the torch that was soon to be theirs, and high above the din of D ' s and F ' s came to them the still, small voice of hope, calling them on. And they held their own!!! They grew to be perfect masters! They could walk the Seven Steps back- ward with their eyes closed. Analytics was a joy to them; quoting from Ameri- can poets was a pastime, so efficient were they in English; the baskets they made in handwork would have gone on the market for a good price; if they Thirty-five MigamrinnapganmTTrrrT a had to sing a song, all they needed was just a few notes — they could sing by sight. Misses Hamil, Pitts, and Ray, and Mr. Hughes got splendid ideas from their practice teaching and the methods they used. Professor Sartain decided that the history of that particular class was the most fascinating history that he had ever sudied. Coaches Campbell and Savage realized that there was not much more for them to teach the Seniors in athletics; while Miss Somerville smiled and SMILED to think that theirs were the best records she had ever recorded; Mrs. Owens, as she took their money from month to month, won- dered what would become of the school, both spiritually (for they had both school and class spirit) and financially, if it were not for the Seniors; even Miss Rembaugh appreciated them by often substituting for grits and bacon at breakfast — so worthy were these Seniors. Miss Earnest would have permitted them to leave the campus without registering, only others would have wanted to do it too! This, then, was that noted few; loved, honored, and esteemed. Presi- dent Shackelford was very proud of them indeed, and it is actually prophe- cied that years hence he will hold the Senior class of ' 22-23 as an ideal class, requesting all succeeding classes to model themselves accordingly. Little more remains to be said, and these feeble attempts are inadequate to paint the virtues of such a class. Space is limited, and it must be left to the prophet to tell of the talents, dreams, and possibilities of each individual of this beloved class, which, as a troop of soldiers armed for battle, or a fleet equipped for warfare, passes from neath the fair skies of the Troy S. N. S., saying: Old Troy Normal, we do love thee! And dost thou not love us, too? As thou hast been, wilt thou e ' er be A guiding light? A friend as true? Time flies, a new day is dawning, Be it ours to serve and light! And grant that we, from earliest morning To latest eve, may serve aright! Farewell to thee, our faithful friend! To us hast thou been good and kind! To thee, our highest success we 11 owe, For thou has trained us in the way we should go. EUNICE WARD— ' 23. Thirty-six SENIOR PROPHECY Arrayed in her gypsy garb, with a deck of cards half hidden by beads and beautiful ribbons in her hand, the gypsy maiden sat before me. Suddenly a " Queen of Spades " fell. " Ah, " she said, " whom do I see here? A medium- sized girl with auburn hair and blue eyes. This is surely Eunice Ward, who is spending her life as a great politician. " Then a " Queen of Hearts " fell. " Mat- tie Lee Cox, " said the gypsy. " Here I notice something quite peculiar. I see clearly two great football stars, whose fame is world-wide, Claude Kersh and Cecil McNair; beside them stand two of our girls. It looks as if there were going to be a double wedding. " 1 was puzzled for a moment and then I re- called oh, yes! Mattie Lee Cox and Lizbeth McMillan. The gypsy stopped for a moment, then said, " They ' re both happy, for I see them during their spare moments, each working for the community in which she lives. Mattie Lee teaches English in the school, and Lizbeth is athletic director. " Still other cards were seen and the gypsy, interpreting them, said, " Grace Stanfil, Jessie Stewart, and Sadie Lide are far away in South Africa, doing missionary work. They have erected a hospital there and are doing a great work. They still think as in olden days, when they were students at the Normal that bacon and apples is the best diet known. " Annie Griffin has at last quit trying to break so many men ' s hearts, and is now in the training school at Louisville, Kentucky. She will finish in May and then she will do mountain work. Annie has always been inclined to let her mind wander to things of this nature, even when she was in school at the Normal. " Whom do I see here? Before a large crowd stands a speaker — I recog- nize C. E. Ray. He has won fame as a great psychologist. He has also written a book, the title being ' Seven Step Education. " We now clearly see that his attempts in bygone days were not in vain. " Ah! I hear the sound of an aeroplane. Look! Nell Gwaltney is the pilot, and who is the person hanging on the rope ladder? It is Marjorie Davi J son! Wonders never cease; who would have ever thought this of Nell and Marjorie? They are touring the country now, giving exhibitions daily and winning great fame as high flyers. " Ester White has astonished the world with her interpretative dancing. She has a school of her own now and some of her pupils are Willie Carmichael, Eubie Landers, Texas Clower, Lois White, Zula McNeel, and Eunice Finlayson. Time alone can tell what great things we may do. Edith and Edna McMurphy, after spending several years in New York in grand opera, have returned to Birmingham, where they appear as leading ladies in Keith ' s Vaudeville 7 ' h irtx aiimgao.f? r " iM ' Saqii ' iimi ' iiiu ' t ' , urirr " Why here I see a beautiful school building, twelve miles from no- where, ' and who is that coming out the door? It is surely Levie Stephens. He is the principal and who are his assistants? Ethel Cordell, Lucile Jarrett, and Emma Faust. ' ' Isn ' t it funny how we sometimes change our minds? Who would have thought that these classmates of mine would have preferred to live a life of single blessedness? " Whom do I see here in this beautiful building? ' ' said the gypsy. " It is Carnegie Library at Troy. My! how it has grown. Mr. John Weed is the librarian, but he is not the only one, because it has grown so much that he has to have three assistants, and these assistants are none other than three of our own girls, Katherine Barr, Bessie Hicks, and Lila Mae Jacobs. " " The class of ' 23 is well represented at the Columbia University, " said the gypsy. " Kate Baxter is head of the English Department; Xury Carter is the head of the Mathematics Department; Regene Nimmo is the head of the Science Department; Elizabeth Perry is the head instructor of Methods. Who can deny that the class of ' 23 was an intellectual one. " That seems to be a big football game, Harvard and Yale. Look! Who is directing the plays of the Harvard grid stars? Jean Tillman is the captain of Harvard ' s team. I am sure you can remember how he played football when he was a student at the ole S. N. S. ' Samuel Cincinnatus Reeves, Jr., is the famous fullback, and Gordon Revel is a famous guard. They have been on the team for three years and have never lost a game. This game decides the national championship, and we know as in days of old that ' our boys will shine. ' " What is this I see here? It is a consolidated high school and every single one of the teachers are graduates of the S. N. S., the class of ' 23. Delaney Parmer is the principal; Laureson Forrester is the first assistant; Evie Stuckey is the second assistant; Eldora Kincey is third, and Ruth Windham is fourth assistant. " We can never tell what time will bring forth, can we? This place certainly looks familiar; it is, indeed, the old State Normal School. Some of our class have even risen high enough to teach here. Louise Kuhn has become intermediate instructor, taking Miss Hamil ' s place; Sallie Lou Eddins is primary instructor, taking Miss Ray ' s place. Jewell Smilie has forgotten all about John King and now rules in Prof. Pace ' s stead. Gladys Watson, after studying for several years in New York, has returned in all her glory to fill the Savage chair; and at last Charlotte Jones has learned to sew and cook so well that she has completely taken Miss Miller ' s place away from her and is making a great success. The gypsy began to let the cards fall rapidly from her hands and this is what she saw: Oma Dean is a head nurse in a large hospital; and with her kind, sweet spirit she is almost another " Miracle Man. " Zelma Burks, who was always a shining light in school, is now head clerk at Woolworth ' s. Mary Carter is heading the Salvation Army in the city of Birmingham. Thomas Hartzog is chief of police in this city. His chief occupation is running down Thirty-eight bootleggers. Beryl Grice and Ruth Collins have opened up a beauty shop in Mobile. Their fame is growing and people from afar come to them for aid. Hattie Watson and Clara Dykes are making themselves " notorious " by the magic soap which they sell. It is guaranteed to make anyone who uses it beau- tiful at once. Mr. W. N. Brunson and Mr. J. C. Knight turned out to be pro- fessional " crooks " and they are now serving life sentences in a penitentiary for the murder of a man. The gypsy, half exhausted, said, " Only two more left, and I see Madelyn Miller and Aileen Graham living the lives of old maids. Madelyn has waited many years for the " undertaker, " but all in vain. Aileen Graham is keeping school up in the mountains in Ye District School. ' She is n oted throughout those mountains for her deeply patriotic spirit. She carries her patriotism to such an extent that she makes the children " see the stars and feel the stripes. ' The gypsy stopped; after waiting a moment for her to continue, I realized that the fortune of the whole class had been revealed to me. But the gypsy, with a queer, comical, weird look on her mystical face, drew a card from her sleeve and remarked, " A surpise. I see here a honeymoon. Miss Mittice Hy- man and Mr. L. W. Dorman on their way to Hollywood, California, where they will remain indefinitely. " It has since been rumored that they are " starring " in " Love ' s Old Sweet Song, " which will soon be completed and ready to put on the " silver screen. " Surely the Normal is proud of her students if she knows what each has done since leaving her walls; certainly no class was ever so famous as the class of ' 2 3. — MYTTICE HYMAN, ' 2 3.

Was it for naught this voyage was made? And shall we cease to sail? Is this the port where ships are stayed? Shall we give up — and fail? No, we must fight if we would win, There ' s much for us to do. The way is rough; we now begin To serve a purpose true.

There are Juniors that are lazy, And some Seniors very crazy; But to reach success with Wright Requires some sense, with grit and fight. Life is what we make it — in a way, Either in our daily work or in our play. Our prophecies reach beyond the grave, And the pathway we shall soon have paved. Thus life ' s problems we shall face Sometimes with a losing race; But our motto will be, " Strong, Defend the right, avenge the wrong. " At last our labor here will cease; Life ' s laborers will rest in peace. Our earthly banners will be then unfurled, To await the conquest of a future world. — L. H. HUGHES. Sixty FRESHMAN CLASS POEM Sophomore, Junior, Senior, We know you think we ' re brats; But you can ' t make us quiver By scoffing and calling us " rats. " You pass us without speaking. You don ' t know who we are; But we don ' t wish to speak to you, We are particular. We have to take just anything You wish to shove at us, You know we never do resist, But only grin and " cuss .

McLEOD Tackle " Big Mac, " our favorite right tackle, although seriously " bunged up " in the World War, over- came all obstacles and became a tower of strength to our famous line. His antagonistic laugh always proved an inspiration in the crisis. His cheerful and bulldog spirit always per- vaded the gridiron and it will never be forgot- ten by his Normal teammates. Co to it ' Big Mac " ! E. J. TILLMAN Captain and Quarterback " Cannon Ball, " our venerable captain whose educated toe so many times staved off defeat, will always live in the memory of his team- mates as one fully capable of holding the su- preme honor thrust upon him. As this is Cap- tain Tillman ' s last year to " boot " the old pig- skin for the Troy Normal the whole school wishes him to fight on the field of life with that " never-say-die " spirit that he so nobly dis- played on the football field. May joy, happi- ness, and prosperity be his in the years to come. MONTIERE POWELL Halfback He is better known as " Munch, " our speedy halfback. When a long gain around end was needed, ' Munch " was right there " Johnny-on- the-spot. " Time after time he circled the ends like a streak of lightning and brought despon- dency and defeat to his opponent. Fifteen " rahs " for Munch. BILL ARMSTRONG Guard Our heavy, lumbering linesman was always there when it came to covering a fumble and our opponent ran up against a stone wall when they tried to rush over guard for a gain. Bill could not be accused of overworking himself in a scrimmage but in a game he was " right in- dustrious. " The Coffee Countains couldn ' t kill him so we think he is absolutely ' unkillable. " Seventy-three SAM REEVES. JR. Fullback " Red Robert " was a sensation on the foot- ball field. Many time they thought that long neck would be uncoupled but it always hung on like the " Last Leaf in Autumn. " Thin is his last year with the Normal. Much do we regret In departure. In hj» later life may he ever -a» so characteristic of his playing on the gridiron of ' 22. CECIL McNAIR Halfback " Shug, " our flashy little halfback, was little but " loud. " His passing of the old pigskin was ' il ' -o hri ' i ji-.any times it brought a U and a ' . ' . ompanying disaster to the heart! of our opponents. Not only was his passing ro but his broken field running was the admiration of th : team. It wiil take a good big rn;in to fill his place on the squad next We are sure that his passes on the field of life will be as true as those on our fields of football struggles for the " dear old Normal. " TOM JONES Halfback Hi ' : Old Cray Mare, " another of our classy halfback , was a credit to the team this season. Hi gril and determination, coupled with his " never ■ ■ die spirit was a boon to the team. !)•- Hrat ni the midst of every play and his ef- forts were keenly felt by the opponent. Hi ■ ■ • ■ present, over-bubbling optimum kept the old Normal spirit at its highest tide. He is the " guy " that put the " Pep " in pepper. W. G. REVEL Guard He came as one of previous experience and n. ' j ' li was expected of him and he lived up to all expectation . On defensive he was a won- der and many times he went through the line to " pill th -; play of the opponent. When things were bright he worked hard. When things were gloomy he worked harder. So we say K ' v. ., - n ; ' h t there and that the opponent felt his presence. His defensive playing will be missed very much next year. Seventy-four iyi iTi nii)iiiiiiiiiifc »iiini iiii]niS- Lnmu;iillllffld ALPH MEADOWS " Alphonzo " always got his nose " busted " but he hung on and fought to the last ditch. He was few of words but he guarded his terri- tory like a wild cat guarding his cave. When on the gridiron he assumed such an antago- nistic look that the enemy almost quailed be- fore him. He kept up the fight until the whis- tle blew. Everyone, from the lowliest " Rat " to the " mightiest " Senior, loved Alph. HARRY QUARLES Halfback " Sergeant " was late getting in on the scor- ing process but when he once got in he made up for lost time. His opponent found it almost impossible to stop him when he got started with his twisting, jumping, side stepping, stiff arm- ing, plunging, and lightning like gait. He also put the " foot " in football when it came to punt- ing and kicking off. When they saw a lump on the side of his jaw about the size of a bar of " Octagon " they thought it was toothache — but " it wasn ' t toothache, it was Climax. " FRED A. FEAGIN End " Freddie " always held down his end of the line in A No. I style. If a pass was flung into the air in his territory it was his pigskin. He was always in favor of a " general mix up " if he thought that his team was not getting a fair deal. He was a friendly guy until " somebody done him wrong, " then there was " the Devil to pay. " Note: As Fred is Athletic Editor and did not want to write about himself (too modest), he permitted the Editor-in-Chief to pen these few lines. BERNARD HAVARD End " Burnerd, " our crack right end, has been of valuable service on the defensive this season. Many times when the opponent pushed us hard and a touchdown seemed to be inevitable, he would rush in and throw their backs for loss after loss. Many times he was almost " wrecked " but he hung on with that grit which is in keep- ing with his football spirit and ability. He was right there with the goods. Seventy-five THOMAS COLQUITT Tackle " Pipie " was always a pile driving force as tackle. When the line was hard hit, Pipie was always in the midst of the fight, putting every ounce of his strength into the play. At times he was a little slow in " letting out " but the foe suffered many a severe blow when he once snapped into action. Pipie believed that " ac- tion speaks louder than words. " JOHN B. HOLLOW AY Tackle " John B " sustained injuries while " scrimmag- ing " in the earlier part of the season but he clung to football with the tenacity so prevalent among the Normal players and made his letter by a safe margin. He was one who manifested that " Do or Die " spirit so loved by the true fcotball sport. When it came to tackling and breaking up plays he was a " Humdinger. " ROY PAUL Center For two years " Rat " has played center and the ability and precision with which he started the old pigskin into each play has been al- most miraculous. It was his skill in playing his position that accounted for the almost " fum- bleless " action of the Normal team. The op- ponent soon learned that a center rush was as impossible as if a mountain stood in the way. When the cry of " Signals " rang out, the boys knew that " Rat " would send the old pigskin in a spiral path directly to its secret destiny. CLAUDE KERSH Halfback " Kershbaum, " one of our plunging halves was a subject of comment and admiration as he put his nose nearly to the ground and " tun neled " through the line for gain after gain. He was tall and slender and we thought he would be " uncoupled " but he always came through game and scrimmage unscathed. He leaves the old Normal in ' 23 and all his team-mates and friends hope that success will crown his efforts just as it did on the gridirons of ' 2 1 and ' 22.

Revel Alph Meadows Fred Feagin Seventy-seven wm ammBBmae FOOTBALL The 1922 season opened on the local gridiron with a game against Clio on Friday, September 22. The weather was hot and it was the first game the Normal boys had played, so it was not as good a game as they have played, but it showed that the Normalites were a fighting bunch. The Trojans won by the score of 56 — 0. September 29, the Normal squad journeyed over to Luverne for the sec- ond game of the season. The main features of the game were long forward passes and straight line bucks. The Normal boys tnought that 20 to was a very low score to pile up against that Luverne team. The game was a bitter struggle and it took every ounce of Normal strength to keep Luverne from crossing their goal line in the last half. But the Troy warriors crossed their goal line three times, and " thereby hangs the tale. " On October 6, the crack Andalusia eleven came up for a game on the local field. For years Andalusia and Troy have been rivals in sports and the football fans knew there would be a lively scrap when these two teams clashed for supremacy on the gridiron. The game began with a rush, Andy receiving the ball. The much heavier Andalusia eleven would not be denied a touch- down, time after time plunging through for gains, and in a very few minutes they had a 7-0 lead. ITiis ended their scoring, for the Trojans stiffened their defense and did not again allow their heavier opponents to get in striking dis- tance of their goal line. After the first quarter it look all the visitors could do to keep the Trojans from carrying the old pigskin over for a touchdown and tying the score. The Normal team put forth superhuman efforts to tie the score, and though many times they were in striking distance of their oppon- ents ' goal line, Andy s luck stuck with them and the game ended 7-0 in their favor. The Normal ' s next game was with the Sidney Lanier High School, of Montgomery. This game was played in Crampton Bowl. The Poets kicked off and h eld the Normal for downs; and they also blocked the punt and cov- ered it for the first touchdown. Their next touchdown was gained by line bucks. This ended the scoring for the first quarter. In the second quarter the Poets completed a beautiful pass spontaneously executed for their final touch- down. The Normals came near scoring in the second half, when the whistle blew with the ball on Lanier ' s one-yard line. This ended the first half. In all the last half of the game the Normal played rings around the Poets, but were unable to make a touchdown. Lanier triumphed by the score of 2 I -0, but the game was harder fought than the score indicates. Seventy-eight ni ' imiiMicusq iiiiiniMiNiiiiiininma The S. N. S. eleven, on October 20, went to Enterprise and there engaged a strong football team in a rather one-sided game. Due to injuries received the previous week, there was a noticeable number of the varsity players unable to make the trip, therefore missing on the lineup. Though crippled badly, the Normal boys fought hard, but were unable to stem the tide of the Coffee County High School team, which swept over them for a victory of 38-0. The locals thoroughly enjoyed the game with the Luverne High, played October 2 7, on the Pike County Fair Grounds. The Luverne pigskinners ex- pected to get sweet revenge for their defeat earlier in the season, but they were doomed to disappointment. They played hard and fast, but they were no match for the S. N. S. pigskinners, who outclassed them in every phase of the game. They gave the visitors the same dose of defeat that they had given them the first game, only just a little heavier. This time they enlarged the vic- tory 31-0. The next gridiron struggle of the Normal was played at Dothan on Friday, November 4. The game was played at the fair grounds, during which thous- ands of spectators witnessed it. The Normal scored on a fumble in the first quarter and held the Dothanites scoreless until the third quarter, when they scored on an onside kick. The game ended in a 6-6 tie. On November 1 I , the Headland aggregation engaged the S. N. S. team on the local field. The visitors were entirely outclassed all during the game, but a lucky pass netted them a touchdown and thus they scored. The Nor- malites plunged through the line of the opposing team and marched down the field for a decisive victory to the tune of 33-7. The next encounter was with Marbury. The Normal team made the long journey on cars November I 7. Before the game the Normal boys would have been picked as easy winners, but they played out of form that day be- cause they were tired out after the long, tiresome trip. Though the Marbury Tigers could not tear through the Normal line, they completed pass after pass over the heads of the S. N. S., and kept the ball in their possession almost during the entire game. The game ended with the score 1 3-0 in favor of Marbury. On November 24, the strong Florala team, who had played Enterprise a scoreless tie, met the Normal in a fierce struggle. Though the visitors made only one first down, they had a strong defense and every inch of ground was absolutely earned. The S. N. S. kept the ball on the enemy ' s territory all the time and when Florala punted they would slowly but surely batter their way Seventy-nine back toward the opponents ' goal line. The Normal would not be denied a victory, so by terrific line plunging they hammered their way through the Florala line for a touchdown. On two other distinct occasions the Normalites worked the ball within striking distance of the enemy ' s goal line, but tough luck kept them from making another touchdown. The game ended 6-0 in favor of the S. N. S. and the Florala warriors were deprived of what they thought was going to be an easy victory. The " Turkey Day ' ' battle was with the highly touted Eufaula eleven. A disinterested party would have picked the visitors as easy winners, but looks are sometimes deceiving. The Normal team was at its best that evening and everyone plumed for action. When the whistle blew for the game to begin the Normalites started immediately for Eufaula ' s scalp. Time after time they plunged through Eufaula ' s line for gain after gain and tore it almost to shreds. They also skirted the ends for long gains and completed short, snappy passes over the heads of the Eufaula line. The Normal, by varying her tactics, kept the Eufaulians befuddled until the last. In spite of all this, the Eufaula team deserves credit for their exhibition of gameness and hard fighting. They went into the game to win, but the S. N. S. boys gave them a good drubbing. The Normal was triumphant and trounced the visitors to the tune of 2 5-0. It was a glorious victory over a worthy foe that closed the S. N. S. football season of ' 22.

Outfielder Eighty-one BASEBALL A double-header with Andalusia High School opened the baseball season of ' 22. McGhee pitched a good game, but as luck would have it, Andalusia nosed out ahead by a lead of one score in the first game. The second game was a reverse of the first. McNair pitched the second game, and pitched no better game than did McGhee, but a lucky error of Andy ' s third baseman let the Normal score, " and thereby hangs the tale. " The next victim was Ramer, on which the snappy Normal nine piled up a large score. The Ramer team was good, but the Normal team was better, and so it was not very interesting to the Normal boys. Home runs, three-bag- gers, doubles and singles were prominent features of this game. Then the team invaded the Coffinian territory and marched away with the Enterprise High School to the tune of 9 to 8. Battery for this game consisted of McNair and Baxter, the former being touched at short intervals for singles and doubles. An error on the part of Enterprise ' s third baseman let in the win- ning run in the ninth inning. Then Clio came up with its notorious nine and if they expected to wear the Normal scalp back to Clio they were hopelessly disappointed. The Normal boys ran the score up so high that it sounded more like a one-sided gridiron contest. The battery was composed of McGhee and Baxter, both of whom did themselves due credit. The High School of Troy stepped over to the park and gave the Teachers to understand that they " had their number. " — And they did. The Troy Messenger said that " Goat " was just too much Walker for the Normal batters. Then came games with Opp, Brantley, and Andalusia, each of which was won by a safe margin. The Troy High School wanted to give the Normalites some more of the medicine which they had administered at the first of the season. It was a different story this time. With McNair in the best of form in his twirling, Baxter very efficient in his receiving, and Powell, McCrory, and Baxter wielding " wicked willows, " the High School was glad that it was no worse than 1 4 to 6. They garnered two scratch hits off McNair and made their runs on errors. But the Teachers could not win always, and they could not have lost to a much stronger team than Opp. The diamond at Opp was in bad shape and McNair started in the game without warming up sufficiently. He held them down after the first inning but the score was 6 to 4. Sidney Lanier came down with a team composed of players from the City League and school players and took two out of three games from the Normal nine. The season ended with a hard fought game with Brantley in which McNair had to work his " wing " and " noodle " constantly to keep the errors of some of his teammates from losing the game. The score was 3 to 2 in favor of the Normal. Coach Campbell looks forward with pleasurable expectancy to the ' 23 season for he expects to turn out an aggregation that will almost eclipse the team of ' 22 in fielding and in batting.

The Ozark team was a very good outfit, but the Normal was better. This game showed that the girls were going good and that they had the makings of a real classy aggregation of basketballers. This game was played on the home court and it was well worthy of gracing the S. N. S. campus. The next game was with the snappy Clio team. The girls motored down there to give them a dose of the same medicine which they had recently admin- istered to Ozark. This was a one-sided affair in which McMillan and Ander- son shot goals at will over the heads of the bewildered adversaries. Radney and Smilie exhibited wonderful guarding ability; and Norman and Lide played superbly at center. The result was 29-6 in favor of the S. N. S. The Troy High School saw with envious eyes the rapidly growing fame of the Normal basketeers. They wanted to put a stop to their upward jour- ney to basketball fame. They came across the hill and issued the challenge, which was warmly returned by the Normalites. My lord! what a game! It was a very one-sided walkover in which the Normal won by the score of 30-1 . The team motored down to Josie Beat to engage that consolidated school in a game on their court. This was a heated argument in which the Normal came out in the lead. The score was 1 2-4. Josie came to play a return on the local campus, and the result was near- ly the same as before. The score was 1 4-5 in favor of the S. N. S. Ramer came down with her two teams, boys and girls, and tried h er " darnedest " to carry back two scalps. The girls decided that it should not be theirs, and they put up a wicked fight against the Ramerites and triumphed over them in a heated argument by the score of 18-5. They first tasted defeat, and it was a bitter draught, when they went up to Montevallo to try their skill and grit with the highly-touted team of that female institution. They put up a noble fight, and fought to the last ditch, but all to no avail. The purple and gold tide was just a little too strong for the crimson and black. They lost by a small margin, yet they lost. The score was 12-15. Many Normal hearts were sad when the wires bore the sorrowful news to impatiently waiting ears. Returning from Mintevallo, the girls came by Marbury and Prattville. These two towns boasted good schools and consequently good teams. The Marbury game was played at night in the gymnasium, and the S. N. S. girls won from them by a very small margin. The yellow and black squad put up a stiff battle. The score in the end stood 11-10 in favor of the crimson and black sextet. From Marbury they journeyed to Prattville. This game was also a heated engagement, but the end was of a much sadder nature. The Prattville Eighty-four bunch proved a worthy foe and exhibited much skill and grit. They defeated the Normalites by the score of 1 3-8. With this game over, they came back to headquarters to rest after the tiresome trip. They needed all the rest they could get for the game with Woman ' s College. This was a knockout blow to the Normal basketeers. They had long looked forward to this game with eagerness and hope, but all their hopes van- ished when the whistle blew that ended the encounter. It was by no means a walkover for the Crimson-Grey, for many times their goal was threatened, and they came nearer defeat than they had in four years. The score stood 20-28. This was a sad event and so the season of ' 22 ended in tears and sorrow, but with hope of revenge in the future season. GIRLS ' BASKETBALL- 1923 The girls motored down to Luverne, where they trampled on them to the snappy and joyful tune of 18-11. This was a hot game and it showed the same old Normal spirit which was exhibited on so many courts during the ' 22 season. This began the season of ' 2 3 and it seemed that this would be a suc- cessful one for the Teachers. The first Friday after Christmas holidays was a time of sorrow and dis- appointment for the whole school. The team went to Montevallo, where they suffered defeat at the hands of the Purple and Gold team. The score was 10-16 and it made the team and whole school very sad. But it was at the hands of a worthy foe. Samson was the girls ' next victim. They motored down there and took the Samson scalp to the tune of 31-9. Ramer came down to taste Normal blood, but they were disappointed, for they lost to the S. N. S. basketeers by the score of 26-16. They returned home very much chagrined at losing such a coveted scalp. To play Ramer a return game, the girls motored up there to engage them in a one-sided affair which ended in a score of 23-1 2 in favor of the Teachers ' squad. Then came the greatest scrap of the season. Montevallo came to play a return game, and it was a hurricane from beginning to end. The M ontevallo team was a little strong on brain work and by this they slightly outwitted the Normal contestants. A large crowd and the whole student body held their breaths as each team shot goal after goal. The final scoer stood 16-18; Monte- vallo had won. Many were made sorrowful at this event and Montevallo went back with the Troy scalp at her belt. The Wetumpka sextet was the next contestant. The girls motored up there where they engaged that team in a close game, which ended in defeat for the Normal. The score was 23-24. They lost by a single point, but that was enough to snatch victory from their eager hands. The last game was with Samson, and it was hardly worthy of ending the ' 23 season. It was such an easy victory that the Teachers felt as if there had not been a game. The score was 1 6-4 in favor of the Normal; and this was the end of the girls ' basketball activities of ' 23. Eighty-five iro.ii ' n ill,iimii;«iiX=aiI illl))iii)iiii3iTS j aili- i. , " , liil% J gT r " ■ " i r i ' S g HN ii i ' ll lii n -mm The Players of ' 22 FORWARDS McMillan and Anderson played excellent basketball throughout the sea- son. They shot goal after goal over the heads of bewildered opponents. The team knew that if the ball was given to McMillan it was a certain two points. She had a slight edge on Anderson when it came to shooting, but Anderson was an all-round player. They could always be depended upon to do their part of the playing. Singer was a No. 1 " sub, ' ' and was always ready to go in and do her part. GUARDS Radney and Smilie were the experts that kept many a young forward from winning fame for herself. They fought many times when the game seemed hopeless and at no time did they ever give up and let their oppon- ents shoot goals over their heads. We say they are some guards. Miller was " sub ' ' guard and many times she was given a chance to show her guarding ability. CENTERS Lide and Norman played all the season in this position. Norman was cap- tain and she was a very efficient leader of the team. She and Lide ruled over the central domain with skill and ability. They were fast and accurate, and many opponents felt the superiority of the skill and grit of these two formid- able centers. The Players of ' 23 FORWARDS McMillan and McWhorter, the two Macs, were the ones on whom the re- sponsibility of the artillery work rested during the whole 23 season. Ander- son graduated last season and McWhorter has held down the position in grand style in a majority of the games of ' 23. McMillan was the idol of the school and many throats were made sore by yelling fifteen rahs for that star forward. She will finish at the Normal in the spring of ' 23, and she will be acutely missed on the basketball court during the future seasons. As captain, she ex- hibited rare ability and it was due to her basketball sense and skill as much as to anything else that the Normal could boast of such a team as that of ' 23. Eighty-six GUARDS There were no changes in this part of the team, so Radney and Smilie held the same positions as they held last season. And they filled these places with the same bulldog spirit as was displayed by them during last season. Smilie will graduate in the spring, and that will be a tower of strength gone from the guarding end of the team. Radney will be left to play next season, and we hope that she can always guard with that great ability that she has so nobly displayed during the last two seasons. Substitute Miller will be a graduate in the spring, and she will no longer be here to take the place of her team- mates when they are compelled to come off the court. CENTERS Norman, the captain of last season, finished her educational activities here, and she was no longer seen on the S. N. S. courts. But Hyman took her place and she has acquitted herself well in that prominent position. Lide, a center of last season, played with the same swiftness and skill which character- ized her playing of last season. Both these players will be absent in the coming seasons and we know their absence will be keenly felt by the future teams. Paisley played well as substitute center, and she will be here next season to up- hold the glory of old Troy Normal in the basketball games of the future seasons. 1922.

' ii ' v seven TO THE SCRUBS This page is to you who have gone out day after day and have worked hard for the glory and honor of the school, without any hope of individual fame. If you have been roughly handled by the varsity gridiron squad day after day, if you have been trampled underfoot and bruised on the rocks, if you have chased baseballs that bounced off the bats of the varsity batters, if you have been tripped and rolled about on the basketball courts, you are a noble scrub and your persistent efforts shall not pass unnoticed. By your grit and determination you have built the teams of the Normal School. You are the right kind, because it takes a person with the true bulldog tenacity to hang on and fight when it seems that there is no honor or reward to repay him for his efforts. If the school seems to think that you are some kind of an inferior being, overlook it and console yourself with the thought that you are a few among many who were willing to make a sacrifice for your school. That sat- isfaction is not the only hope for reward. You will be on the teams of next year. If you are a girl, you will have a better chance to make the girls ' basket- ball team next year. If you are a boy, you will stand a better chance of get- ting on the varsity football, baseball, and basketball teams of next season. So, scrubs, in behalf of the entire school, we sincerely thank you for your untir- ing efforts and we wish you much success, honor and glory in your athletic activities of the coming season.

Tillman Levie Stephens Tom Jones Fred Feagin Wallace Phillips Bernard Havard Bill Armstrong Sam Reeves, Jr. Harry Quarles Eighty-nine Eugene Campbell BOYS ' BASKETBALL OF ' 22 Coach Campbell was somewhat handicapped by the lack of basketball material, but he took what he had and turned out a quintet that did him credit, considering the adverse circumstances. They started to shooting the old goals just after the football season was over, and as the days began to shorten and the weather began to grow colder, they worked day after day to become an efficient machine. The varsity bunch was pitted against the scrubs daily, and the court resounded with the sound of fierce scrimmage. Many times the scrubs pushed them close, but always their superiority became evi- dent and the scrubs were trampled underfoot. After days of stringent prac- tice, they were ready to meet all opponents and right well did they acquit themselves as they met and defeated team after team and brought glory and honor to the dear old Normal. Sometimes, by hard luck and adverse circum- stances, they were defeated by a few points, but this was seldom, very seldom. When this happened there was sadness in the hearts of the student body, for they hated to see their snappy team go down in defeat. The players who starred in this team as forwards were Clark, Kersh, McGhee, and Reeves. They were all accurate shooters and fast movers. Many opposing guards stood bewildered as these S. N. S . forwards shot goal after goal over their heads. Guards on the opposing team soon saw that it was practically useless to try to guard them, but they had to keep on playing for the sake of form. The center on whom much fame and glory was showered was Levie Steph- ens. He is tall and skinny, and it takes a man on a stepladder to tip the ball over him. He moves like a streak of greased lightning, and the boys knew that they could throw the ball to the goal for he was always there to receive the pass and shoot the goal. They called him Smokie, and we say he certainly showed his smoke during the season of ' 22. The steadfast guards were Tillman, Cope, Meadows, and Baxter. The opposing forwards were as helpless as a rat in a trap when they tried to shoot goals over these Normal guards. Not only were they very capable of keeping the opponents from scoring, but they could pass the ball with such accuracy that a goal was almost certain when a Normal guard passed the ball back down the court. The boys were a little sad when the season of ' 22 was over, for they knew that some of them would be missing next season. Ninety BOYS ' BASKETBALL OF ' 23 The season opened very successfully for the Normal as the boys beat the Elba team by the score of 20-13. They motored down to Elba to play the game on the opponents ' court and it was a hard-fought engagement. The Normalite basketeers emerged victorious, as is shown by the score. The strong Greenville quintet came down to get the Normal scalp, and they got what they came after. Though the Teachers never stopped fighting, the Greenville bunch outplayed them at all stages of the game. Their superior passing and their technique in shooting goals were two big factors that tended to cause the downfall of the Normal quintet. The Normal boys showed a plentiful supply of grit, even though they were defeated 52-16. The Normal cagesters journeyed to Ozark, where they engaged that five in a hotly contested game. This was the first game of a series, on a road trip, which included games with Abbeville and Headland. It was a close, thrilling game from start to finish, but the Teachers were destined to win. So they did, by one point, the score being 20-19. The following day the Normal quintet tackled the fast Abbeville cage- sters on their home court. The Abbeville players had the advantage of their home court, and they broke through the Normal defense time after time. The Teachers were playing away off from their regular form, and the Abbeville basketeers annexed the victory by the score of 26-9. The next day the Normal five stopped over in Headland long enough to take a game from the snappy Headland basketeers. The Headland team played a good game, but the S. N. S. team outclassed them and won by the score of 20-8. Greenville was again the Normal adversary. The S. N. S. boys were determined to make a better showing this time, and they motored over to Greenville to play a game on their court. This game was played at night. The Greenville bunch still exhibited their superiority in passing and shooting. The Teachers put up a better fight this time, and the result was a score of 28-9, in spite of the stiff opposition offered by the Normalites. The next game was on the home court. The local five copped a game from the Andalusia Hi lads. It was a good, scrappy game from start to finish, but the issue was never in doubt. The Normal basketeers outplayed their opponents all the way through, and triumphed by the score of 22-6. Ninety-one " Mii s mwfMmmgj iTiiiiiiiiiiiniii ' iiiiiia A cage game was scheduled with the Ozark Athletic Club, to be played on the local town court at night. In this game the local five showed expert ability in shooting and passing. They were just at their best, and they cer- tainly gave the visitors a good drubbing. The score stood 58-14 when the last whistle sounded. The Headland cage team dropped off the train on their way home from the Auburn tournament and pulled a big surprise on the Normal campus by defeating the Normal basketeers. The S. N. S. had been picked as an easy winner, but they failed to produce the winning goods and lost to the Headland team by the score of 22-1 1. The score was tied at the end of the first half, but the Headland basketeers forged ahead and came out in the lead, thereby winning a decisive victory. Elba came to play a return game on the local court, and it was a game with plenty of thrills and excitement. From the sound of the first whistle to the last, the Elba Hi lads fought hard to stave off defeat, but they finally suc- cumbed to the inevitable. The Normal quintet won by the score of 24-1 7. There are two or three more games to be played this season and the Normal will have an opportunity of adding several more victories to their list for the ' 23 season.

He is a descendant of the late Squire Jiggs, who was a prominent character in the mediocre class of America. He is low of stature and very fat; and even though fate doomed him to become a henpecked husband, nature was kind to him in that she made him round, so that he might roll and bounce instead of fall, when propelled by the force of a rolling pin in the hands of his enraged wife. Jiggs is popular and his universal popularity is due, perhaps, to his meekness of spirit at home and in the presence of Maggie, his would-be-loved wife, and his ability as a leader among his friends. His temper, due to the " blessings of his tyrannical wife, is smooth and pliant. He can, in a mo- ment ' s notice, adapt himself to the most foreign conditions and begin at once to get the most that life affords under these circumstances. The rolling pin, china cups and saucers, and vases have taught this man the virtues of patience and long suffering. Indeed, he has so accustomed himself to bumps and punishment that, I dare say, he can endure more today than can our most noted pugilist, Jack Dempsey. The one great error, however, in Jiggs — the thing that causes him more domestic tribulations than any other one thing in the world — is his aversion to high society. It is simply against his idea of pleasure, altogether, to go to balls, attend dinners, visit art galleries, and meet dukes and counts. He can- not help preferring the simpler and perhaps less elevating amusements of poker playing and eating " corned beef and cabbage. " This is, of course, a constant source of irritation to Maggie, the society-loving and exacting, tyran- nical and heartless wife she is. Notwithstanding this fact, the brave and dar- ing Jiggs is not bluffed. He associates with his friends, plays poker, and eats his " corned beef and cabbage " even though he has to use the shrewdness of a judge, the slyness of a fox, and the bravery and courage of a general to es- cape the ever-watchful eye of Maggie and to suffer the consequences sure to follow when he returns home. Jiggs is " great " . He is human. He is truly a man, proven by the facts that he likes to stay out late at night, that he falls in love with every pretty girl he sees, and that, through experience, he has become both a leader and a follower — a leader among friends, a followed of Maggie. —MARY CARTER, 23.

The soldier sees life as one great battlefield on which battles rage and where blood stains the trampled sod. The minister sees life as one great community, where there is a multitude of duties to perform. He sees these duties in the form of sermons, funerals, charity, weddings, and all the various duties of a pastor. The student sees life as one great schoolroom, where merciless teachers impose duties which seem to weigh upon and crush him. It is one continual panorama of written lessons (many times unwritten), unanswerable questions (sometimes answered), and a multitude of other edu- cational terrors. If each individual could become imbued with the conception of life which leads to higher ideals and to more efficient economical and vocational activities, this old war and sin besmirched world would become of greater candlepower in the mighty universal system of light. Then life would be worth living, and being an inhabitant of this earth would be an honor and not, as it oftimes is, an unpleasant duty. If man could know what one thing makes life worth liv- ing, the human race would assume a more optimistic viewpoint toward life and death. Men everywhere are virtually living this question because each individual seeks the thing that he thinks will make him happy. A few men have what makes life worth living. Millions do not know and they eke out a miserable existence on this earth with little hope of improved conditions of a future world. Is it money that makes life a pleasure? Certainly, poverty is not desira- ble, but does financial success alone bring complete happiness to the person who attains it? Go to the world for an answer. A poor laborer comes walk- ing down the street. He whistles a merry tune and his countenance is all illuminated with the sheer joy of living. He is going home to enjoy a few blissful moments with his wife and children while he partakes of a scanty but enjoyable meal. A millionaire rides down the street in his eight-cylinder limousine. He looks disdainfully out upon the masses who have furnished the source for his more or less illgotten wealth. No happiness is portrayed upon his wrinkled and unpleasant visage. His mind is occupied by thoughts of greater wealth. His family and friends are just stepping stones to higher society and he is miserable as long as anyone surpasses him in wealth or society. His char- acter is portrayed on his countenance. It shows that he is far, very far, from being happy. He does not know the meaning of life and gold is his god. One Hundred Ten ll l| i,ii,iiiiiiimiiiiaP ' - miiiii,iiiii3S j This rich man is not happy. Can it be said that the poor man is com- pletely happy and has no cause for worry? Tomorrow he may be without means of supporting his family. His union may ostracize him and then his family will suffer; and he will be heartbroken to see them in need. What is it that this man lacks? Why is he not able to get work regardless of labor unions and adverse circumstances? Let us ask a few questions and endeavor to ascertain as to the man s intellectual equipment. Is the man able to read great literature? No; he has never known what it is to think great mens ' thoughts after them, and has never lived through a wonderful story of life and adventure. Can he write great essays and poems? He does not even know that such things exist and he makes his mark on the pay check. One can now begin to see why his happiness may be shortlived, and how he can be happy one day though disconcerted and despairing the next. His happiness was built on present conditions of comfort and bodily needs, and there was no foun- dation on which the edifice of true joy was constructed. His mental faculties have never been developed. His physical body is fully developed and it is far more efficient and serviceable than his intellect, which is dwarfed and stunted. Then he lacks mental development and because of this, life ofttimes becomes burdensome. What is this thing which he lacks called? It is educa- tion. Can this man at this stage of life mend his intellectual prowess to meet the needs of modern life? The question should not be, can he?, but it should be, will he? Nothing is impossible, but, as it is ofttimes illustrated in everyday life, this development after maturity is a slow process and very few have the determination or the keenly felt need to undertake it. Thus they are jostled along in the merciless crowd " where the sons of strife are subtle and loud. " Despair reigns in their lives, and no cloud which comes within the range of their vision has any semblance of a silver lining. This state of affairs multiplied by the number of illiterates in the world is the cause of wretchedness, poverty, famine, war, and a multitude of other curses to humanity. Education is a wonderful thing. It is a light on the rocky shore — a beacon to shipwrecked humanity — the rich man s means of amusement — the poor man ' s means of livelihood — and an ideal for the downtrodden world. The small conditions of a cruel world cannot handicap the educated man or woman. The educated individual lives on a higher plane of intellectual activi- ty, and although he may be depressed by the numerous cares and duties, he can always see that beckoning light shining through the clouds of sorrow and disappointment. Thus he keeps working with cheerful determination, disre- garding the conventionalities and attitudes of the vain world, and always near- ing that port " where every wave is charmed. " One Hundred Eleven nimiiiiin ' ii 1 . ' Uwna The uneducated person comes to a sea of difficulties and sees nothing but darkness and failure ahead. He falters for a moment — the oncoming tide of humanity sweeps over him — he is lost in the awful struggle and suc- cumbs to Nature ' s universal law the survival of the fittest. The person who has a literary, scientific, and psychological background sees " sermons in stones, books in the running brooks, and good in everything. " As he goes to his work he is invigorated with the thoughts of some things of a higher nature. As he goes through his daily activities he does not consider it a burden, but as he works his soul is afire with the zeal given him by the pen of a masterhand of literature. As he takes a few hours for recreation and wanders alone over the fields and through the woods, he is doubly inspired by Nature ' s great display of wonder and beauty. He hears the singing birds, the murmuring pines, the bubbling brook, and he sees the lone bird soaring high in the heavens, silhouetted against the background of vivid blue. He throws himself down upon the luxuriant grass in the shade of the venerable liveoak, and as the cool south wind kisses his glowing cheek he finds himself in an ecstacy of joy and his " lightest words to melody run. " But, kind reader, you ask if this is education? The answer comes back: Anything that gives hu- manity a broader outlook on life — that causes men to see the beautiful in the Creator ' s edifices of nature — that makes life worth living, is education. That which teaches one that life is beautiful, and that it is put here by a Divine Power, is education. If anything tends to lift the human being above super- stition, jealousy, sin, and worldliness, that is education. The world today judges success by the dollar mark. The man who has not thousands at his command is considered a failure by the world. Similarly, a man ' s education is measured by the number of degrees that help to lengthen his signature. But that is a gross mistake. A man or woman may take ad- vantage of the highest educational facilities of the world and then be unedu- cated. Our great schools can put on a polished surface, but the inner soul re- mains intact, and must be developed by individual initiative. Although an in- dividual has never been shut off from the grim realities of the world by the four walls of a great institution of higher learning, he may be educated. If he has seen the great truths of nature if he sees the light of some worthy ideal calling him ever onward — if he can obey the laws of God and Nature and is an asset to humanity, he is educated So, my dear reader, look to it that you study life and humanity. Embod- ied in humanity is something of God, and as each new human emotion is touched, just that much has God come into your life. If by some kind word or cheerful smile you make some poor soul ' s burden lighter — if by some word of encouragement you give new life to a fallen brother or sister — if you cause one gleam of light to enter the darker musings of a despondent person, that spark of joyful zeal will grow into a mighty volume of flame and be reflected in your soul and your sphere of activity will glow in the beautiful rays of the glorious light. —THE EDITOR.

JAMES LANE ALLEN Nearly everyone has felt a distinct thrill of intense pleasure while reading Bret Harte ' s stories of the West. He portrays every imaginable character and he intermingles these characters in stories which have for their backgrounds the mountains, rivers, gold mines, and small villages of the wild, new West. Just as Harte was one of the first to draw upon the unlimited resources of the West for his wonderful stories, so was Allen the first writer to take the ores from the beautiful Bluegrass regions of Kentucky and refine them into literary products that are indestructible. The earlier inhabitants of Kentucky were of the best blood of England, and they were, indeed, a proud, hearty race. The early settlers were always engaged in hard work or in Indian wars and they had no time for literary ef- forts. As the people prospered they builded great homes and owned much land and many slaves. The men of letters concerned themselves chiefly with law and oratory and still no time was given to the production of classical lit- erature. This state of affairs existed until the War of Secession, or immediately afterward. Then Kentucky produced a man that caused the name of the Bluegrass State to be familiar to all English speaking people. The first work of Allen seemed to have been the work of an experienced author. He was born and bred on one of those great old Kentucky farms, sur- rounded by the great stretches of Bluegrass prairie. This farm was operated by the use of slaves, just as was many another before the war. Allen graduated with honors at the University of Lexington and then taught a district school for several years. He then gave up his teaching and gave his time, unreservedly, to his literary work. He went to New York, where he contributed to magazines and where many of his stories were written. His novels are distinctly worth while; and not only do they give a vivid picture of Kentucky, with its vast expanse of Bluegrass plateau, its mountains, its hemp fields, its slaves, and its people, but they portray the emotions of men in such a way as to make them famous the world over. He takes the characters of Kentucky and clothes them with a glamour of romance that gives them a place in each American heart. In his series of stories called " Flute and Violin, " he portrays vividly many of the characters of Kentucky. One of the stories of this series is " Old King Solomon ' s Coronation, " in which he uses a widely used character in dramas and short stories, the social outcast. But clothed in Kentuckian garb, and sur- rounded by the other characters, he assumes a different aspect and in the end One Hundred Twenty is honored as a hero. Bret Harte would have left him to die in a mountain snowstorm or drown in a river flood; but not so with Allen. He causes the reader to realize the truth of that old adage, " All ' s well that ends well. " In another story of this series, " Two Gentlemen of Kentucky, " he gives a vivid picture of Reconstruction days in Kentucky, and the love of an old slave for his master. The two characters are woven in with the life during the period after the war, with a touch of romance here and a tinge of humor there — all of which serve lo stir the innermost emotions of men. The death bed scene of the old gentleman with Peter, the old slave, at his side, is very pa- thetic, yet there is an atmosphere of majestic sweetness in which the soul reaches its highest degree of emotional pleasure. This scene seems to appeal to the same emotion as does the last scene in Bret Harte ' s " Tennessee ' s Part- ner. " The setting is altogether different, but the effects are common to each. Tennessee lay dying in a rough cabin, on a bed of boughs, surrounded by the bearded miners. He felt the divine pleasure of seeing his partner, who had gone before. The old Kentucky gentleman lay dying in a comfortable man- sion, in a bed of spotless linen, attended by doctor and nurse. His last mo- ments were made pleasant by the presence of old Peter, and as Peter prayed, his spirit gently departed from his body and was wafted softly through the open window to ascend to Heaven on the dewy wing of morn. Kentucky is the theme of nearly all his stories, but that does not mean that they are sectional and cannot be appreciated and understood by other sections. The characters, problems, emotions, and conditions which exist in his stories are common to all humanity and thus they are of universal appeal. Many of his stories could have been true of other sections, but if they did not have those strong, manly Kentucky men and those noble Kentucky women as actors, and those Bluegrass ranges for a stage, they would lack that natural effect which is the life of the stories. He draws strongly upon the unlimited stores of nature for his material. This is strikingly shown in " The Gleaming Redcoat " and " Summer in Arcady. " Allen has that wonderful ability of building the details as his story de- velops. He does not go into a detailed description of the setting, but actually builds it as the story progresses. In " A Courtship " the lovers are strolling in one of the beautiful pastures of the Bluegrass region. Her father has for- bidden her to go with him, but she is here and they are making love as only true Kentuckians can do. But father is seen coming up the pasture road. There must be a place for them to hide. Allen had not made arrangement for this beforehand, but he quickly builds, as it were, a tree. Nothing but a small, thorny, bare tree will grow in the pastures of this section, so he has a grape- vine growing on the small tree. They get behind this and are thus saved from the father ' s wrath. Although this may sound exaggerated, and it is, it shows skill in using his creative ability in the production of stories. Kentucky should be very proud, indeed, of this author, who has done so much to immortalize the name of that State so favored by nature. —THE EDITOR. ( ' • Hundred " Parenty-one MgBSBB — aE BODama " " " « GOVERNOR W. W. BRANDON At the time that the material for this issue of the Palladium was being prepared, Governor Kilby was in the executive chair of the State, and was, therefore, Chairman of the State Board of Education. Governor Brandon will be in a similar position, very probably, when the next issue of the Palladium is published. This will most likely be when we remove to our new site, we hope, within the period of Governor Brandon ' s administration. In this connection it is pertinent to call attention to our present Gover- nor ' s splendid educational platform. He makes education the cornerstone of his platforrr to and if the Legislature will co-operate with him, great things will be accomplished for the cause within the next four years. We are hoping, yea, we are expecting, that this will be done, and that the extraordinary record made by Governor Kilby will not only be equalled, but surpassed by Governor Brandon.

One Hundred Twenty-seven iga — ngggB — BB8B M " OUR FEAST " My roommate and I had just settled down for a nice feast. On the table before us lay a plate of sandwiches, a bottle of pickles, some cake, and a quart of ice cream. Just as we began to eat, without a thought of being dis- turbed, there came a " gentle rapping as of someone gently tapping, tapping at our chamber door. " We sprang up with a single purpose at heart — that of barring the door. My roommate being supplied with a generous coat of surplus fat, placed herself against the door while I fan back to the table for a book. By this time the signal had been given on the outside we now had a small sized army besieging us outside the door. While my roommate held the door against the force of the opposing crew I barred the door by placing the book underneath the transom bar. This being done, we settled down to our waiting feas t. The confusion of noises in the hall grew louder, the pounding against the door increased, the door began to creak, there was an awful crash and the door stood wide open. In the door stood Miss Rem- baugh. On the floor lay the book and the broken transom bar all was quiet. Ten minutes later two very crest-fallen girls sat down before a table covered with broken cockery, cake crumbs, pickles, and a quart of melted ice cream. KATHER1NE PR1TCHETT, 24.
