Dean Smith has assumed, besides these duties, the difficult task of personally conducting the activities of the students, and of enforcing unpleasant rules of discipline upon them. They have accomplished their tasks in a very successful man- ner, and at the same time done so with personalities so laden with tact and wisdom as to leave those influenced by them with a high admiration and undying friendship for them. To serve as these have served is our highest hope; thus may we likewise " Follow the Gleam.

He is possessed of soul so human In the ways of sport and mirth and comrade- ship diversified That none could be who would not long to call him friend. Though pensive mood attack and clouds ap- pear, ' Tis not for long; For how in mind so clear could twisted thoughts abide, And how could gloom o ' ercast the sky, When he has reasoned out the how and why. c£± jggjjlilliggf THE STESPEAN 1930 SENIORS Prince Surgener BLUEFIELD, W.

Its purpose is to promote and strengthen athletics in Union College, and the membership is made up of men who have legitimately won letters in major sports. Its president, Teddy Poe, has distin- guished himself as an athlete at Union and has worked unselfishly for the success of the club. During commencement week the " U " Club gave its annual banquet, one of the biggest social functions of the year. At this banquet the first honorary " U " was awarded Dr. J. G. Tye, of Barbourville, who has been a faithful and dear friend of Union College, and especially of the athletic teams. His services have been freely given to the players who have received injuries and to him Union owes much of the backing that makes her athletics what they are. The " U " Club is the life of the athletics. THE STESPEAN WOMEN S GLEE CLUB MEN S GLEE CLUJ THE STESPEAN 1930 OXFORD B QUARTETTE Y. W. C. A, The Y. W. C. A. was organized at Union College early in 1930, officers elected, and the first meeting held on February 3. Although the work was entirely new to most of us, we feel we have had a most successful year. Under the guidance of Miss Cate and our capable president, we have become interested in the work and more able to uphold the ideals and program of the organization. In spite of our youth, we can boast of a membership of seventy-one. Each member has had a chance to serve on some committee, such as the Friendship and Social Committees. A wonderful work was done by the Friendship Committee when the Pollyanna Club was organized. Of course everybody remembers the party in Speed Hall parlor and the Gypsy Pateran given by the Social Committee. We are looking forward to greater years of the Y. W. C. A. work in Union College when every girl will become an active member, and it will be one of the most prominent activities in our college. THE STESPEAN PoMyaiiea Climb During the early part of the second semester a new organization was created, taking its name from the story " Pollyanna. " This or- ganization was a branch of the Y. W. C. A., its purpose being to promote higher ideals and to bring about a friendship among the girls which would be remembered and cherished in later years. The club consists of one hundred and four members, each one playing the part of an " unknown " Pollyanna to another for a stated length of time, at the end of which time each was identified to the other. The same thing was then repeated. The part of a Pollyanna was to present gifts, keep up correspond- ence, give surprises of various kinds, and, above all, to bring about happiness and establish a permanent friendship. The organization proved to be a success and by the close of the year there was an under- standing among the girls which had never existed before. This was due in no small part to the sponsor, Mrs. Etna Doop Smith. ifeers The Playlikers is one of the oldest and most firmly established clubs in Union College, as well as one of the most interesting. As a dramatic club it has had an unusually busy year, and has presented many good plays. It is divided into three groups — one for religious drama, one for musical drama and another for miscellaneous drama — giving a variety of work to students of literature and drama. Quite a few one-act plays were given such as " The Merry, Merry Cuckoo " and " By the Roadside. " The play of the season, " The Passing of the Third Floor Back, " was presented in Barbourville and a few weeks later was taken to Harlan. Miss Abigail E. Weeks is club sponsor; Florence M. Cate, sponsor of religious drama; Ethel Eversole, sponsor of musical drama, and Mrs. Arlie O ' Kelly, sponsor of miscellaneous drama. ' W THE STESPEAN 1930 I Le Cercle Francais Le Cercle Francais was organized in the fall of 1928 by Florence M. Cate, head of the French Department. Its programs and func- tions are carried on in French and only students of intermediate and advanced classes are eligible for membership. The members are very much interested in the interpretation of French life and customs so that many novel features were introduced during the year. Once a month the club spent a " night in France " with Miss Cate, who is a very capable leader and a lover of the work. The project of the year was the establishing of correspondence with students in France, which proved to be very interesting and even exciting. This seems to be rather a permanent work. At the close of the year a French party was give n by the club. THE STESPEAN 1930 White Liglitnini Motto: Put Kick Into College Symbol: White Horse This is " White Lightning " found only on Union College campus and used exclusively for athletics. It puts pep, vigor, enthusiasm and fight into the teams and wherever they are it is always around. Surely when a game is on the team needs inspiration from the side lines and here it is — The Pep Club. M) VTx zr COX ' CHeswuT THE STESPEAN 930 Athletic Snaps 62 C_g l §l g_ii THE STESPEAN J. R. Bacon Coach Although coach has been with us only a year, he has shown that he means business. Union College football has taken quite a jump upward in the short time that he has been in charge of ath- letics here. He possesses a personality which enables him to command the highest respect of those with whom he comes in contact. He is a strong advo- cate of clean athletics, and has the power of imbibing that spirit into his teams so that Union is highly respected for the fairness and cleanness of her athletics. A. T. Sims Assistant Coach Coach Simms was called to Union College a long time ago when as an athlete he won fame for old U. C. He is still one of the biggest reasons for Union ' s rise in athletics, due to his un- tiring efforts, his unselfish interest in athletics, and his ever forward spirit. He has all the good qualities that are needed on the athletic field, in the busi- ness world and in everyday life. On athletic trips he is a good companion and backs the teams with all he has. THE STES: 1930 The 1929 Bulldogs enjoyed the most successful football season ever played by a Union College team when, in a twelve weeks ' season, they started eight games, won five, tied one, and lost two. On September 6th the summons to report was made by Coach J. R. Bacon and some thirty-five men set out for Union ' s biggest season. After three weeks of hard work the Bulldogs played their first game with Lee Baptist Institute, winning by all the score. Next came Concord Univer- sity, Sue Bennett College, Eastern Kentucky State Teachers, Tennessee Wesleyan, Transylvania, Hiwassee and Tennessee Teachers in rapid suc- Top Roil-: Coach Bacox, Messer, Catrox, Burkhardt, Slusher, Tve.

Captain Fred, captain of this year ' s football team, was one of the best tacklers Union has ever had. His playing was of such excellent caliber that he covered himself with glory by his perform- ances both on offense and defense, making every opponent realize that he was facing a man. Teddy Poe, Guard Ted, plaving his last year on the varsity, proved to be one of the most efficient and reliable men in the forward wall. Although he was handicapped by injuries about mid-season he stopped many of the advances of opposing teams during the first games of the season. William T. Maloney, End, Captain-Elect Bill ' s second year on the varsity convinced us that he could play football as it should be played. He was always at his post giving his last " ounce, " win or lose. A hard tackier, an able blocker and probably the best defensive man on the squad. He was a tower of strength to Union. Charlie Davis, Center Charlie, a battered veteran of the gridiron, was ever faithful, showing repeatedly that dogged tenacity and never-say-die spirit. He was always a fighter, always encouraging to his other linemen and was a great bulwark at center. Ester Davis. Half Es came breezing in a little late for the beginning of football season, but proved that he was one of our best halfbacks. A good broken field runner, an accurate passer, and, above all, a receiver who seldom missed. THE STESPEAN 1930 Harry Taylor, Quarter Harry ' s second year on the varsity eleven bore out all predictions that he would be un- stoppable this season. As a long ground gainer he was among the best; Wesleyan will testify to that. His ability to change directions at full speed marked him as one of our very best. William Slush er. Full, Captain-Elect Bill was a grim-faced brunette from Pineville, who played havoc with every team Union played. He crawled into his new position of defensive fullback like a duck taking to water. Many an opponent felt the results of his knifing tackles. Loyd Patterson ' , Half Runt, although handicapped by injuries at the very beginning of the season, proved himself to be an important cog in the mechanism of Union ' s football machine. He was often used as an emergency man when a few extra yards were needed. JlM Messe r, Tackle Jim is 185 pounds of pure man. He began his football career for Union three years ago and has become one of the outstanding linemen, due to his constant efforts in learning to play the game. We are expecting him to develop into one of Kentucky ' s best next year. Rufus Bailey, Guard Rufus is a hard fighter with plenty of grit. A good lineman, a sure tackier and game. He did his part and did it well. He has played good football all year and will be a greater player in the next two vears. THE STESPEAN 1930 -: " Walter Beodow, End Ted, after being out two years, came back in good working condition for the season. He plays end and when he is in the game you can look for anything. Although light, he is trouble on the defense. Z. R. Howard. Half Howard, better known as " Judge, " is a sincere player. He is a sacrificial player whose work during the past season wa:. especially valuable. A good broken field runner and a hard line plunger. If he can ' t find a hole he makes one. George Lyttle Tye, Tackle George Lyttle, " last " on the athletic field, has shown his good sportsmanship on the gridiron by fighting against odds. He is a lover of the game, a hard worker, and always has a willing spirit. We are expecting great things from him on the varsity next fall. John Blrkhardt, Tackle John came forward this year with a new understanding of how to play football. He has become a hard worker, reveling in action. To see him break through and smother a play or pass is enough to gladden the heart of any lover of good fighting and tru e sportsmanship. Clyde Greene, Half The past season has been the initial marker of " Buzz ' s " football career at Union. His offen- sive work has been consistent and at times sensational. He drives a line and skirts the ends in good style. His blocking is nearly perfect and on defense he is ever alert and deadly. 1U THE STESPEXN The basketball season is one of the best in the history of the college. The first game of the season was played at Berea and won by a large score. Eastern and Milligan were the only disastrous foes. Since Christmas the Bulldog has hardened into a smooth working ma- chine and the boys have " brought home the bacon " from Lincoln Memorial, Tennessee Teachers, Tennessee Wesleyan, Cumberland and Hiwassee. The men of 1930 will all be back and the team is assured of success next season. Top Row: Coach Simms, Mays, Taylor, Davis, Coach Bacox. Middle Row: Whitis, Tye, Tye, Frederick.

Forward, Captain " Judge " With an indomitable spirit of " do cr die " Judge has played hard all this season. There has never been a more conscientious athlete in the college. He is a hard, clean and winning fighter, and his ability to drive under the bas- ket has been a great asset. Herbert Tye, Center " Herb " A product of the Baptist Institute last year, Herb stepped into the place made vacant by Bill Slusher and gave an unusually good ac- count of himself. With a little more experience he ought to be able to create a name for him- self, for he undoubtedly has that aggressive de- termination which is vital to basketeers. Ester Davis, Guard Consistent, alert, accurate — this is " Es, " forward for U. C. Deft at making seemingly impossible shots, he can always be depended on to run up a good score against any defense. He has dis- played a style that has placed him among the first ever since his appearance on the floor. Jesse Lawsox, Guard " Chi His name way he lo If he has ought to be " Unconscious, " for th- ids the basket doesn ' t seem normal, the ball within ten feet of the bas- ket he invariably increases the score two points. Overhead, backward, one-handed, hooked — any- thing, they all hit the middle of the loop. Carl Lawsox. Forward This player came to us from Cumberland and made a good start by winning a berth in hi- initial year on the squad. He showed consistent improvement as the season advanced and he is expected to be a formidable factor in the Orange and Black camp next year. v XU s THE STESPEAN 1930 Basketball Clyde Greene, Guard " Buzz " Another junior and another surprise. Look out, opponents! As a backguard Buzz is the answer to a coach ' s prayer; a past master at prevent- ing a score when three men advanced in his direction. He is headed for a whirlwind season next year at his old berth. William T. Maloney, Forward " Bill " He is a peppy, dependable floor player, and is destined to become one of the shining lights of basketball. Little need be said of his ability, either on offense or defense, for it is obvious that he is one of our good players. George Lyttle Tye, Forward " Last " He has been a basketball star ever since he was able to pick up a ball, and has been im- proving all the time. He gets over the court with amazing speed and ease, despite his nick- name of " Last, " and possesses an eagle eye for the netting. Aloxzo Whitis, Center " Stormy " His nickname describes his actions. He is here, there and everywhere fighting for possession of the ball. With this hard working spirit he will gain a permanent berth on the team of 1931. Harry Taylor, Forward Whose picture does not appear in this section, shines among the Bulldog five this year. He is an all-around player, fast, accurate passer, and an excellent goal shot from any position. He is headed for an all-state consideration if he continues through the next two seasons at the same pace he went this year.

About fifteen men were out early for work and the season opened with Corbin furnish- ing the first opposition and receiving a trouncing. Out of ten games played during the season, Union lost only three games to Pruden, Center and Corbin by one point each. In rapid succession came Pruden, University of Tennessee, Center, Cum- berland, Center, Corbin, Cumberland, Corbin and Pruden. The losses could not be succumbed to and in the end Union ' s nine defeated the three teams to which they had lost. Haws, Lawson, Wilson, Baker, Grecor Union ' s tennis team is always good, but this season has been the best probably in the history of the college. Seven games were played, five of them won by a large score, and two lost. The first opposition was Tennessee Wesleyan, then Georgetown, Sue Bennett, Cumberland, Eastern, University of Louisville and Sue Bennett. Basset Minton of Barbourville took the team to Louisville, where they played the University of Louisville at Riverside Country Club. The players were entertained at the Delta Sigma House and were so interested in the trip that we can understand why they lost by one point. Wilson and Hawn, the outstanding players, lost only one game of singles and one of doubles during the season to the U of L. They will be contestants in the S. I. A. A. tournament next year.
