The main attraction of this affair was the crowning of Anne Hadley. She was chosen by popular vote of S. T. C. students as miss S. T. C. Music was furnished by S. T. C. Troy Wavemen and the decorations carried out the Valentine theme. Miss S. T. C. walked through a large red Valentine at one end of Wright Hall and was crowned by Dr. C. B. Smith. Edwin Howard, President of S. G. A., gave Miss Hadley her Queen ' s bouquet of red roses. P I Z E N. " Pizen, " written and directed by J. W. Blackwell, can easily be said to be one of the most -moving performances the dramatic department of S. T. C. produced. The cast, headed by Miss Dorothy Pope, was superb. Mary Jane Thompson and Ernest Bazemore, as the parents and Regal Willis as the spoiled rich man ' s son, gave excellent performances. Frances Beck, sister, and Jack Solomon, brother, were very good as supporting cast with Erskine Key as sheriff. Mr. Blackwell ' s directing was good, because both performances were " swell. " SPRING RECITALS. The S. T. C. Band, Choir, and individual musicians presented the annual spring recital in three separate programs. The Band, under the direction of Mr. Larry Peterson, and accompanied by Miss Flake Joiner was a program enjoyed by many. The Choir has a reputation as being tops in this state, and this recital was positive proof of this. Sewal ' s special numbers were presented by the choir. The piano and voice recital, consisting of students of Mrs. R. H. Erwin, and Mrs. George Rainer, was the last of the Spring Recitals. This was really a fine program, displaying much fine talent as solo pianists and singers. This series of musical programs was presented by the Music Department and was considered the height of entertainment to our school and many visitors. GEORGE WASHINGTON SLEPT HERE. This hilarious comedy was presented by the dramatic department of S. T. C, under the competent direction of Miss Jeanette Stout. The leading cast was: Bruce Long, Joyce Rump, Martha MacCartney, Louis Tilley, Don Dearborn, James Byrd, Bill Coffield. Supporting cast: Frances Webb, Marjorie Taylor, Marion Nixon, James Patrenos, June MacArthur, and, John Jackson. COTTON BALL. The S. T. C. V. sponsored the Cotton Ball in the Spring Quarter, 1947. At this ball Miss Marion Bowers was crowned Cotton Queen by Tommy Towey, president of the S. T. C. V. The S. T. C. Wavemen furnished the music, and scenes from the Old South decorated Wright Hall. PIANO RECITAL. Three students of Mrs. R. H. Erwin were presented in a recital given in Kilby Auditorium as a mid-summer musical program open to the public. Mr. Aubry Redmon, former S . T. C. pupil, Mr. Raymond Yarbrough, and Mr. James Patrenos performed, and the program was well received by all. SQUARE DANCE. S. T. C. really goes for square dancing as we saw in the two nights the school sponsored square dancing in Wright Hall. Professional musicians and instructors were engaged to make this event a real success. Wright Hall really rocked and a big time was had by all. BIG SISTER PICNIC AND MIXER DANCE. The first social function of the fall quar- ter was the big sister picnic and the mixer dance. The picnic grounds and all the girls going to school here participated in it. The big sisters, upper-classmen, were responsible for getting their little sister to go to the event; thus the name, " Big Sister Picnic. " The " Mixer Dance, " strictly informal, followed the picnic. " No Dates " was the rule of the evening. This made getting acquainted with more people much easier, and gave the social affairs of S. T. C. a " bang-up " start-off. THANKSGIVING DANCE. The first formal of the fall quarter was the Thanksgiving Dance. The Troy Wavemen supplied their usual good music. The dance was considered an outstanding success. It was sponsored by the Sophomore Class. CHRISTMAS DANCE. Pace Hall sponsored the Xmas dance that was held in Wright Hall. The music was rendered by Jeff Bradford ' s Troy Wavemen and the decora- tions were of the Christmas theme with two huge Christmas trees as the center attrac- tions. CHOIR AND BAND XMAS CONCERTS. The S. T. C. music department presented its band and choir in the annual Christmas Concerts on December 19, 1947. The band gave its concert at 9:50 on Wednesday morning. The music, band ar- rangements of Christmas Carols, could not have been better. Mr. Stephenson and his band deserve a large note of appreciation for this concert. At 8:00 on Wednesday night, the choir gave the Cantata, " King of Kings " with several students as soloists. S. T. C. is very proud of our fine choir and Mr. Stephenson. They showed us what an excellent choir they are when they gave this concert. 1947 HOMECOMING. The Homecoming program opened with an evening piano and voice recital featuring Eloise Temple Anspach, pianist, from the faculty of the Cadek Conservatory, Tennessee. After this recital, the Homecoming Dance was held in Wright Hall. Music was fur- nished by the college Dance Band. The following day, the program was: Registration, conducted tours of the campus, an address by Senator Lister Hill, dedication of Pace Hall in memorium to Dr. M. D. Pace, alumni meeting, barbecue dinner, arts program, tea, and finally a football game to end the festivities. Miss Ann Wood was elected Miss Homecoming, and was crowned Queen of Home- coming during the Annual Dance. COLLEGE APPRECIATION DAY. The town of Troy sponsored S. T. C. Appreciation Day and the ball game with Middle Tennessee that night. The event started with a parade through the town of Troy. Three cars in which Dr. Smith, Mayor Thompson, and Mrs. Tobiska were riding, lead the parade. Next came the college band, lead by Prentis Melder, drum major, with Betty Reeves, Jane Griffin, Jonnie Sue Boswell, Jerry Crump, Bettye Doswell, and Anne Harris as majorettes. The Pep Club was next in line, and then came the floats. The Troy High School band joined the parade at the corner of South Bru ' ndidge and Elm Streets. The parade stopped in town near the monument on the square. Here Mayor Thompson presented Dr. Smith with a plaque from the town of Troy to S. T. C. A prize to the best float was presented to the " Specs " Club. A Publications float Palladium and Tropolitan) was awarded second prize and S. G. A. received third. CARL SANDBURG VISITS S. T. C. A huge crowd gathered in Wright Hall to see and hear Carl Sandburg, one of the colloge ' s mose important guests. Mr. Sandburg held his audience for an hour and a half, and if he had chosen, he could have made it longer. ROTARY INTERNATIONAL LECTURES. Four lectures by outstanding speakers on international topics were attended by many college and townspeople. Stephen B. Labunski spoke on " Understanding the Slavic Peoples, " next Hubert S. Liang spoke on " Understanding the Peoples of China, " Hans W. Rosenhauph on " Peoples of Western Europe ' Newton H. Bell on " Understanding the Peoples of the Moslem World. " UNIVERSITY TRIO. The String Trio from the University of Alabama gave a very fine program in Kilby Auditorium for students and visitors. Dr. Alton O ' Steen wos pianist, Mr. Ottaker Cadek, violinist, and Miss Margaret Christy was the violincel I ist. F Lets Talk Things Over lil Beats the barracks. Anything New? Legs go, folks.

In the second period, however, Troy State went to work and fired in three fast touchdowns before Marion could catch their breath. Lamar " Doc " Bowden squirmed 60 yards for the first tally. Queen ' s try was good for the extra point. Queen also accounted for the second tally on an 18 yard dash off left tackle. Midway of the period, Bowden inter- cepted a Marion aerial and went to the 30. Fullback Gene Norman carried it over three plays later from the one yard stripe. At the half the Wavemen led 21-0. Troy garnered another marker when Halfback Bobby Ril ey went 29 yards to score. Two more tallies came in the last of the game. Scoring were Mack Rooks over left guard from the one yard stripe, and Ted Franklin from the four yard stripe, over left tackle.

The Austin Peay Governors tallied in the first quarter. After holding the Gov- ernors, Troy took to the air. After End Grady Parson took a pass to the five-yard stripe, Fullback Gene Norman lugged the leather over. Queen ' s try was wide. Troy was on the short end of the 7-6 score. Troy retook the ball on downs and drove to the thirty, where a pass to Fullback Norman accounted for the final marker. This time Queen ' s foot connected, and game time ran out before the Wavemen could kick off. This was a very big up-set for the Gov- ernors because they had the Wavemen out- weighed in almost every position. Lettermen-.

CAUSEY WILBER JOHNSON TROY STATE STATE vs. JACKSONVILLE In this game, end play was spotty, block- ing and tackling was done ineffectively, and offensive playing was at a minimum. Jack- sonville tallied early in the second quarter after a bad pass from center gave them he ball on the Troy 10. Two plays later they swept across into promised land. The final score came midway of the fourth period on a pass into the left flat after three plays into the line failed to yield yardage. For Jacksonville it was more than just another victory. They had faced what had been rated as the number three team in Alabama and had ruined a perfect Homecoming for the Wavemen. i Letter men: Jop to Bottom) TAY GREEN ERSELL BECK TED FRANKLIN TROY STATE - JACKSONVILLE STATE 14. »v -» ,i ri (Top to Bottom) HOWELL FARRISH BRANNON RILEY TROY STATE vs. FLORIDA STATE Troy State ended an inspired football season by defeating the Seminoles, 36-6, in a Thanksgiving Day attraction.

Quarterback Billy Trussell heaved to Full- back Johney Rice for the first score,- Quarter- back Billy Ezell hit Fullback Gene Norman with an aerial for the second marker,- Half- back Ted Franklin intercepted a pass and ran 36 yards for the third marker; Norman carried over from the two for the fourth marker,- Halfback Ersell Beck smashed over from the one for the fifth; and Rice inter- cepted a pass on his own 32 and hotfooted it down the right sidelines for the last tally.
