These few pages cannot give what it would take volumes to record — all the sacrifice and labor of those with a vision of what the mountain people might become with the op- portunity to justify their splendid inheritance; but to those who have given their service ; to the Class of 1 929 ; and to the College, we present this record of a phase of educational advancement in the Kentucky mountains, hoping that it may serve as a connecting link with the past, and as a challenge for the future. We have no apologies to offer for our work. We have given our best efforts to the task, and wish no recom- pense other than the approval of our classmates, who gave us the honor of " lis annual.

We first came to know him dur spent a week in a series of special meetings the Bishop Henderson winter of 1926, when he spent a week in a series of special meetings at Union College. He lifted the Christian life: We saw it as an adventure and a challenge. He came to visit us frequently. He was a member of the Board of Trustees and always was alert for the welfare of our college. He w _ as greatly interested in the agricultural development program, and before his death, set a plan in operation that will ultimately bring the fund up to five thousand dollars for the permanent development of the rural life of Knox County. Just recently two thousand volumes of his- library reached the college — a gift in his memory to our library, from Mrs. Henderson. Page nineteen )iis79 (mBSSSS M She Golden Siespe Ji This autographed picture of Lincoln ' was given by him to Mrs. Fanny Speed who gave to Union College the larger part of its present endowment. Mr. Lincoln regarded Mr. and Mrs. Speed as two of his closest friends; and this picture, published here for the first time, reflects their close friendship. L )Uy ' .our - Aijcwokj, th $au,Ly f ix »c . Pane twenty Mrs. Fanny Speed, Our Patron Saint During the first quarter of the nineteenth century, a beautiful child, Fanny Henning, was born into one of Virginia ' s best old families. She was a lineal descendant of Dr. Walker, who built, near Barbourville, the first house in Kentucky. While Fanny was yet in her girlhood, the Hennings moved across the mountains into the Bluegrass. She was educated at Science Hill Academy, an d in 1842 married Joshua Speed, a wealthy young man of Louisville. Their life- long devotion to each other is now a tradition in the Speed family. Mrs. Speed, strong in her religious nature, had early united with the Methodist Church, South. In 1 865 1 she joined forces with the Loyal Eighteen and thus became one of the founders of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Kentucky. Though Mr. and Mrs. Speed were slave- holders, they were Abolitionists at heart. With the coming of Emancipation, the Speed slaves were all retained as family servants, and if one of them was sick, or in need, he was cared for tenderly to the end of his life. Mr. Speed was a warm personal friend of President Lincoln, and his able adviser during the Civil War. Through the influence of her pastor, Dr. Daniel Stevenson, Mrs. Speed became much inter- ested in establishing a school of higher learning for the youth of our mountains, and Union College stands today a monument to her loyalty to Dr. Stevenson. During his presidency at Union she paid his salary and all deficits of the school until her death. Her gifts supported the families of many poorly paid mountain preachers, kept many a poverty-stricken, but worthy, young man in school, and made Fanny Speed Hall possible. She never kept account of the money she spent in this way. By her will, $250,000 became the nucleus of our endowment fund. Mrs. Speed was a woman of rare beauty, with sympathetic brown eyes and refined features that were a constant benediction to ' all who knew her. Talent, influence, wealth were hers, and she used all to relieve suffering and hardship wherever she found them. A frail body never en- shrined a lovelier spirit. Her life of sweetness and consecration inspired all who knew her with a desire for higher things.

Each year a special speaker comes for a series of meet- ings. This past year Rev. O. T. Martin, District Superintendent of the Crawfordsville District, Northwest Indiana Conference, delivered the addresses, on " The Abundant Life. " He endeared himself to all of the students and exalted the Christ. Many decisions for the Christian life were made during the series. Page fifty-six yhe Qolden Siespeojv Coach Wolfe Assistant Coach Sims Eari. Surgener Durham Howard Coaches and Managers John B. Wolfe Head Coach In the fall of 1926, J. B. Wolfe took up the reins as head director of athletics at Union. Under his administration the varsity has played only college teams. As a result, Union has lost to and defeated the largest colleges of our state. His proteges will always re- member his theory, " A man can do what he thinks he can. " Coach Wolfe leaves us this year, but his splendid record cannot be eradicated. Algin T. SIMMS Assistant Coach A man who is willing to work can always find a job. Coach Sims worked faithfully with the green football material and sent it to Wolfe for finishing touches. On the hardwood floor he sent the girls into six strenuous games and lost only one encounter. Simms is a citizen of Barbourville, and merits much credit for his assistance with Union athletics. Earl Surgener Football Manager Someone must do the many odd jobs connected with football. Earl applied for the job, and was chosen from a number of applicants. He was doctor, rub-down man, and trainer combined, and did his work splendidly. Durham Howard Baseball Manager Because of his business air and ability, Durham secured the much-desired position as man- ager of the Union " Stick-Swingers. " His work was appreciated by both the coach and players. Buford Clark Baseball Manager Durham was called to fill an important position at the Blackstone Hotel, and Buford finished the season as manager. Buford was water boy, warm-up pitcher, and pig-tail, as well as manager, which marked him a valuable man to the team. Ray Lawson Basketball Manager Aside from his daily routine of class work, Ray found time to work at Bill Jones ' restau- rant and be manager of our boys ' quintette. He received a letter for his services. Page fifty-nine Football Squad Rufls Bailey Guard Thomas Patrick Guard Fred Catron " . Tackle Alva Stark , Fullback Judge Howard Halfback Buford Clark Center A.

Captain " Bob " led his chargers through a successful season. Each man was encouraged by his captain ' s example, and with him fought through many a battle. Harry Taylor Quarterback When the game was close, and the crowd was dead. Harry was sent into the fray to pull one c,l his sensational runs. Old Man Hard Luck handed Harry a broken shoulder in the Transy game, but he was back on the gridiron after a four weeks rest. William Slusher Fullback Bill spent his first collegiate year at Georgetown, but we were glad when he came to Union. He was a tierce tackle on defense. At the last of the season he was shifted to fullback, where he did fine work. Charlie Davis Center " Let your work speak for itself, " was " Basso ' s " motto; and he lived up to it. His passes from center were accurate and easy for the backs to handle. Ray Lawson Halfback Small but loud characterizes Ray. His off-tackle smashes were ground-gainers. Rav never let up, either in time of victory or in the face of defeat. Ester Davis Halfback When a man tackled " Es, " he was always where his tackier thought he wasn ' t; consequently it took more than one good man to stop Ester. " Es " side-stepped, pivoted, and ran ninety-seven yards against Sue Bennett for the longest run of the season. Earl Kilbourne Guard He was a wise man, who could not be deceived by the runner ' s twisting; hence, he was death on tackling. We are expecting Earl back next fall. Page sixty-one ... -Jmaaaa a i3ig , ) 187Qj( %( e -Golden Mespecui Jiwv Bill Football Alva Stark Fullback Every man has his own trade, and " Axe " has his educated toe. He was kick-off man and a punter that could place the pigskin where the safety couldn ' t handle it. Alva carried a " Charley horse " through the season, but he played just the same. Zack Howard Halfback Possessing the necessary strength and the speed of a Kentucky thoroughbred, " Judge " filled the safety man ' s shoes with success. His punts were long and high, giving the ends ample time to get down the field. His territory on defense was well-protected against all passing attacks. FRED RlGSBY Quarterback This was the third year for Towhead to don his football togs. After Harry Taylor received a broken shoulder bone in the Transy game, it fell on Fred to call signals. Rigsby to Dishman was a passing combination which was hard to break up. It was Dishman who scored on Transy by the aerial attack. Fred Catron Tackle Catron was late getting into the lineup, but his playing was an asset to the team. " Why get excited? " was his playing attitude, and his coolness gave his team-mates confidence in him. " Jarhead " will be one of the first men on the gridiron next fall. Ted Poe Guard He possessed more fight per square inch than any man he came up against. Taking advantage of his size, he squirmed through small holes and stopped many a play before it was developed. Ted was the ex-captain, and has one more year at Union . James Messer Tackle Salesman Jim is always two weeks late in getting to school, but never too late to win his place on the first eleven. Jim ' s work at tackle was excellent. In the Hiwassee game he was shifted to an end. where he won more than a hundred yards by snagging the leather oval from the air. William Maloney End Fast, and hard to get out of a play. Bill played a bang-up game at left end. He shone in chasing ball carriers down from behind. Bill will always remember the Tennessee Wesleyan game, played in a sea of mud and gravel; and we shall never forget the line record he turned in on that day. Page sixty-two yhe-Golden Siesfyeojz Basketball Harry Taylor Forward Speed was Harry ' s middle name; and making beautiful shots while twisting his frame into complicated maneuvers was his hobby. He had plenty of high school experience, and came to us a finished product. William Slusher Center Bill did everything but carry water. One night he played center, then forward, and finally back guard. His desperate efforts and manly tight will linger long in the minds of the bas- ketball fans. Alva Stark. Forward best consistently, and the score will f itself. " Axe " never played in good Play y take ca spurts, 1 nd his usual number of goals Ester Davis . Guard " Here comes Davis, get set, " was the cry of our opponents, but their warning was in vain, for " Es " invariably tore through their fortifi- cations and sank the sphere through the net. He was running guard and high point man. so he evidently did more than dribble the ball. Alonzo Whitis Center ho can cover rorked well at the pivot position, but his main feature was registering " two-pointers " from a difficult angle just back of the foul line. J. B. Wolfe Mentor Coach never picked out an easy schedule dur- ing his coaching career at Union. The games below will speak fin- themselves. The material was not regular, because students came in late, Bob Barker Forward Bob ' s pep and enthusiasm was excelled only by his eye for the iron ring. While Ester was on the hospital list, Bob played an outstanding game at running guard. Judge Howard Forward Hard work and clean sportsmanship won him a position on the team as well as respect in the spectators ' minds. Judge has three more years. Bill Maloney Forward " Punishment is my dessert, " he seemed to say when he collided with a gigantic opponent. But he never quit: the last whistle was the only end to Bill ' s playing. His timing was excellent, and his goal shooting good.

Guard She brought the sphere down the floor, and her buddies made the goals. Ruby ' s chances to make goals were few, but she never failed when the crip-shot opportunity came. Mildred Rader Guard Somebodv must be on hand when a regular is knocked out. Mildred always substituted with plenty of enthusiasm, which kept the ball roll- ing. A few opponents were slightly injured, but they should have stopped when they saw her l rai 11 Elizabeth Blackburn, " Liz " . . . Forward " Practice makes perfect. " and " Liz " has had ?.

Her one-arm shots from the sidelines were thrilling epochs of the game. Mabel graduates this year, and we shall miss her. Rosa Leinart Center " Rose " came to school after the season had begun, but not too late to make the team. Be- ing a fraction taller than the average oppo- nent, she succeeded in getting the tip-off at thing well you don ' t enjo Prince Surcener Y ' ou can ' t do an ' doing. Prince con confidence and foi strength to win. Vola Marshall Guard One of the reasons why our quintette turned in a splendid record is mentioned immediately above. She was forever breaking up what seemed to be a sure crip shot. Her defensive work was no small object in the team ' s success- ful season. Julia Howard Center " Here! Here! " was the excited exclamation of Julia as she directed her team in their floor work. Most plays worked around Julia because of her ability in directing the plays. Ida Terrell Forward " Oh, my! " were Ida ' s famous words, which she uttered when something went wrong. Her speedy dribbling and accurate shooting were highly applauded by the onlookers. Pearl Webb Forward When some said, " She made twenty-one out of twenty-two points, " we knew whom they were talking about. She was high-point player in most of the games. We are anxious to see Pearl in action next winter. Schedule M. U 32 imberlana 11 M. U 21 Page sixty-four yhe-Golden Siesfyeoji Baseball Happy Mayhew Shortstop " Hap " was just the right kind of man to hold down shortstop position. He was fast enough for the hot ones and heavy enough to stand up under the line drives. His work at the plate with the ash was hard on the pitchers ' reputations. Rufus Bailey Right Field When a fly was hit to right field and two men down, the other eight men dropped their gloves and started for the bench. An errorless fielding record marks Bailey as an indispensable man in Union ' s famous nine of 1929. Charles Davis Catcher This lad we ' re introducing had more pep than ten acres of Post Toasties. He was the main source of enthus- iasm. Charley ' s peg to second made the runner look as if he were tied to the atmosphere. Very few ever stole a base on our big " Catch. " Bill Maloney Catcher and Right Field Everybody admired Bill ' s work on the baseball field. When he was behind the plate he had plenty of chatter; when playing right field he handled every ball that sailed into his field. Hats off to this scrappy lad. Slim Roberts First Base " Back up, fielders, here comes Slim to the bat. " Slim had a big day when our boys won from Cumberland, 2-0. He hit a home run in the second and drove in the second run in the sixth. This was Slim ' s day. His mound work was as well done as his hitting. Bob Whitis Left Field Every ball club in this section of the country has heard of " Big Bob " Whitis, not because of his size, but rather because he hits more horsehides into the swamp than any two men his size. Bob ' s fielding also was good. Page sixty-five 7he-Golden Siespe jv Baseball Alonzo Whitis Pitcher When something went " Bang! " you knew it was Stormy ' s speedball hitting in the catcher ' s mit. He never got excited, and came out of some mighty close places. The Emory and Henry game placed " Stormy " in our memories as a mud horse, who plugged through nine innings of dripping rain to win, i-o. Fred Putnam Second Base Three years in a Union suit has developed Freddie into a valuable man. He graduates this year, and we shall have to look a long time to secure a man able to fill his shoes. Judge Howard Pitcher Hard luck was riding Judge in most of his starts. But he managed to win all but one encounter. Judge was a star at base running; every time the catcher gave him an inch he would take the next base. proved to be a James Messer Center Field Always willing to do his part, " Jim valuable man in the pinches. He pinched-hit in the last game of the season and sent the winning run across the home plate. " Jim " never missed a practice during the season. His pluck is admired by all. Harry Taylor Third Base In this case a little man was given one of the biggest jobs on the diamond to hold down. He handled them all, fast or slow, and his throw to first was fast and accurate. Harry was lead-off man, which usually meant an infield hit or a Texas leaguer over short- stop. Ester Davis Center Field It was a pleasure to watch " Es " cover his territory in center field. He knew where the ball was going at the crack of the bat, consequently he made difficult ones look easy. Page sixty-six lS fgHB SHl . e -Golden Siesp sn Tennis Julia Howard played an illustrious game this season, both in singles and in doubles. Her skill in placing the ball was outstanding. Elmer Robinson played his usual cool, steady gait throughout the season. His net work was brilliantly executed. Alva Stark displayed an unusual game this season with his racket. He dropped only one match and that was to Kee of Kentucky State. Alva can make a tennis ball do anything but say " Hello. " V. S. Dver, Coach, worked every possible evening with his crew to whip them into shape for stiff opposition. Coach advanced Union ' s standing when he scheduled two matches with the University of Kentucky with which he broke even in the tilts. Howard Wilson, one of Kentucky ' s best swingers, went through the season losing only to Ragland of Kentucky State. His drives were mean to handle. Roy Hubbard played first class tennis at Eastern State Normal before he came here. Coach Dyer was pleased to have him enroll in Union ' s tennis camp. George Baker always played the ball as though it were the match point at stake. His game of drives and chops was difficult to return. Ida Terrell had a serve that few feminine racket swingers could handle. Ida played as well in doubles as in singles.
