Chosen to represent the American School Teacher for the Palladium, was Miss Loraine Hamil, who retired last year from the Troy State Laboratory School Staff when she had taught for 50 years, 43 of them at Troy. With Miss Hamil here are Mrs. Jean Moore Long, who is now a school teacher herself, and two of the young Americans whom they have helped to live and learn according to our American ideals. PRESIDENT TERMS 19481949 RAWER YEAR Any time we desire to study our progress it is interesting to look back, around and ahead. It is interesting to do that now at Troy State Teachers College. A fair appraisal, I think, would conclude that the years since the 1946 fall session have been the richest, most vital and most interesting period in the history of the college. Each year has been better than the preceding, and of course 1948-1949 is a banner year, so far, from every standpoint. Next year, 1949-1950, looks good from this point in space and time. A new, beautiful, commo- dious building is under construction and a new dining room is in the blue print stage. Curriculum of- ferings are being expanded and improved. Students who have been on the campus since 1946 are to be congratulated on being here during one of the most creative periods in our institution ' s history. C. B. SMITH President Dr. Charles Bunyan Smith, under whose expert guidance Troy State Teachers College has become a modern school and one that ranks among the top ten teachers colleges of this nation. Indicative of his progressive leadership is the constant effort to improve the curriculum of the college and the vast physical growth of the school. DEANS STRENGTHEN BOND BETWEEN STUDENTS AND ADMINISTRATION The four deans of Troy State strengthen the bond between the students and the Administration, and promote close cooperation on all matters. They hear the comments and complaints, compliments and questions of the students. It is through them that the students make their wishes known, and it is to them that the students feel free to go with problems of school, love, and life. Dr. G. R. Boyd, above, is Dean of the College and Head of the Education Department. Miss Lucille Garrett, upper right, is Dean of Students. Miss Florence Marks, right, is Dean of Women, and Professor Auxford Sartain is As- sistant Dean and Head of the His- tory Department.

Colley in honor of the late Calvin Kilpatrick, of Opp, who was killed in a traffic accident November 22, 1947, while returning home from a Red Wave victory at Fort Benning, Ga. Each year in the future a smaller likeness of the trophy will be presented to a member of a Red Wave varsity team in a major sport. It will be presented on the basis of character, scholarship, lead- ership, and athletic ability. This is an honor to be sought by all strong, intelligent men of athletic ability who will attend S. T. C. in the years to come. BUDDY McCOLLUM Head Coach and Athletic Director BUDDY BROOKS Basketball Coach SAM SMITH Baseball Coach JOHN LOCKWOOD Assistant Football Coach SHELBY SEARCY Halfback BILL TRUSSELL Quarterback — Captain CARLOS BASSETT Tackle MACK ROOKS Fullback TROY WINS OPENER OVER UNION This being the first game of the season, no one at Troy expected the Wave to make a good showing, but the team jumped over the scrimmage kinks and edged past the Union Bulldogs 15 to 6. In- strumental in this victory were RH Sonny Queen, LH Ted Franklin, and RH Coot Chesser. In the line RG Toy Green and RT Ox Kress were oustanding. WAVE OUTPLAYS S. L. I. BUT DROPS TILT Here the Wave ran up against one of its larger brothers in the SIAA, and came away on the short end of a 26 to 19 score. The Louisiana Bulldogs had expected to run up a big score, but Troy surprised them with its spirited play, and even scored first. This was perhaps the best game played by the Wave all season. Righhalf Coot Chesser was the hottest thing on the field for the Trojans. MARVIN CARLTON Halfback FUZZY HOWELL Quarterback JIM BEAVERS Halfback PAUL CAYTON Tackle TROY TAKES UNDERMANNED CADETS The undermanned Cadets of Marion Institute came out with a split T formation which ran up an early score on the over confident Red Wave. Eventually Troy ' s vaunted offense got underway, though, and rolled up three TD ' s giving the 19 to 6 victory margin over the Cadets. WAVE DROPS TILT TO AUSTIN-PEAY The unbeaten Governors came down seeking revenge for de- feat at the hands of the Wave men in 1947. They ment home on the long end of an 18 to 7 count. The varsatile Sonny Queen was the spark of the Wave. RED WAVE LOSES THRILLER TO JAX The Wave, after having lost two games, sought to get back into winning ways by ending the winning streak of the Gamecocks, but came away with the short end of a 25 to 13 score. Troy led 13 Ml TURP SPEAR Guard JIM SULLIVAN Guard ENNIS SELLERS Tackle HERMAN SCOTT End U, DEWEY RENFROE Quarterback » CECIL LANGCASTER Guard to 12 until the final two minutes of play when the North Alabamians scored two quick touchdowns to sew up the game. The Wave still had a chance to score when the count was 18 to 1 3 as they marched to the Jacksonville 12 where Williams intercepted Renfroe ' s pass. In a few seconds the gamecocks scored again when Smith intercepted another of Renfroe ' s passes and galloped 50 yards for the final TD. HOMECOMING SCRAP COPPED BY TROY In this game the Wave turned the pigskin warpath to its home camping grounds for the annual Homecoming game. The apposition was furnished by the capable Tigers of Livingston who turned in a whale of a ball game before losing 14 to 0. The offensive minded Wave had to rely upon the good right arm of Quarterback Lucky Renfroe to pull this victory out of the bag. Troy scored both its touch- downs on aerials and Renfroe added both extra points from place- ments. RICHARD CHESSER Halfback KENNETH AVINGER Tackle CHARLIE McCALL End Mfii ■■HH JOHNNY KREIS End GENE NORMAN Fullback T. ELMORE Fullback WAVE OVERWHELMS ST. BERNARD The Red Wave, which had been running hot and cold, found itself in this game. The team could do no wrong as everything went off like clock work and the Saints were overwhelmed 32 to 0. Troy suf- fered a less when Righthalf Sonny Queen received a severe eye injury that put him on the shelf for the rest of the season. Hurt previously in the Livingston game was regular Lfthalf Franklin, so at this point reserve halfbacks Carlton and Chesser came into their own. Due to their remarkable play they are known as the Cinderella Twins. " ONION " DAVIS Guard— Alternate Captair MITCHELL KIRKLAND Guard TED FRANKLIN Halfback " SONNY " QUEEN Halfback CARLTON VOTED MOST VALUABLE PLAYER Max Moseley, Sports Editor of the Montgomery Advrtiser, is shown presenting the Most Valuable Player Trophy to left halfback Marvin Carlton, senior from Tallassee. This trophy is presented annually by the Enzor Theatre in conjunction with the Troy Quarterback Club, to the Red Wave player voted most valuable by his teammates. WEST GEORGIA SWAMPED BY WAVE The Wavemen jumped on the Braves and did nit let up until they had scored a 33 to 7 triumph. Instrumental in the victory was Gcathead Carlton, player. Chesser also turned in a good game. ho was later selected as the team ' s most valuable TROY PULLS ' BAMA BEES ' STINGER The ' Bama Bees ' rolled into Dothan as heavy favorites to sting the Wave into defeat only to have the Cinderella Twins, Carlton and Chesser pull their stinger out 6 to 0. FLORIDA STATE SEMINOLES SCALP RED WAVE The Seminoles, still from a 36 to 6 pasting they took from Troy last year came into Dothan ' s Wire- grass Stadium with blood in their eye and submerged an overconfident Wave 20 to 13. Carlton, Chesser, and Cox stood out for the losing Wave. TROY DROPS FIRST POST-SEASON GAME TO JAX Some 7,000 fans saw Troy drop its first post-season game to Jacksonville in the Paper Bowl in Pensacola, as the Gamecocks scored in the first, se :ond, and fourth periods to subdue the Wavemen 19 to 0. The punting of Carlton and Norman was the highlight of Troy ' s play. o CO CD h- o o u_ LU CO LU h- Ql LU co O D 0) O CO E 2 3 O CQ Q ?= 6 v O- X ?

The following boys were mem- bers of the Championship Steelers: Bobby Riley, Doc Bowden, Bobby DeRieux, Grady Hicks, Ottis John- son, Billy Williams, Leon Hilyer, John Terry, Ed Childers, Manager Herbert Connell. INTRAMURAL BASKETBALL ATTRACTS MANY Thirteen teams turned out to compete for honors in the Intramural Basketball League this year. These students who took the trouble to walk over to the gym were amply rewarded by getting to wit- ness many closely contested games. As this Annual went to the printers two teams, the Steelers and Longhoms, were sharing the top spot with the Steelers having an advantage because they had played mere games. Leading the scoring parade was Frank Tenewitz, of the Draftdodgers, with 130 points. His nearest rivals were Jack Creswell, Queen 7 cagester, and Gene Norman, Hoopster star.
