A fact that is proven by the various positions of honor and authority that he has held In the fields of religion and education. He Is admired and respected by all who know him because of his patient resourcefulness, his repeated con- quests against obstacles, and his spirit of optim- ism, even In the face of tremendous odds. An outstanding leader and faithful servant in behalf of humanity, he is es- teemed by citizens of Tennessee and be- loved by the entire student body of Union University, which he affectionately calls his " happy family. " Truly It Is his greatest concern, and he is revered by them as a leader of noble bearing who possesses an Infinite capacity for knowing them and un- derstanding their problems. Now as al- ways his life is dedicated to the cause of Christian education. DEAN SARGENT of COLLEGE Dean S. S. Sargent is loved by the students at Union University because of his patience, generosity, and kindness toward all those with whom he is associated. Through the medium of poetry he endeavors to bring to the student higher Ideals and loftier aspira- tions. Though kindness Is one of his outstanding characteristics, he is capable of combining with this kindness a certain degree of firm- ness which is a necessary quality in an executive. Dean Sargent is a leader in that he does not believe In compelling but rather his per- sonality permeates deep into the heart of every student causing each one of them to wish to follow his example. Diplomats are said to need tact in dealing with their fellowman and Dean Sargent may be called a true diplomat. The warmth of his greeting makes each newcomer on the campus feel that he has already found a friend — one whose chief concern is aiding others. Though Dean Sargent may see the faults of others, he emphasizes the good qualities and strives to develop these qualities so that they overshadow the faults, almost to the point of erasing them from the life of the individual. All of these qualities bring to mind a picture of our Dean, hlls memories of the Union of yesterday, his work for the Union of today, and his vision of the Union of tomorrow make all lovers of Union know that he Is a true friend — a man to be admired. MRS. D. W. LUCKEY, hostess of Crook Hall, guides her girls with all the tender- ness and kindness possible as she takes the place of their own mothers. All those who live under her care love her. MISS LOUISE SUBLETTE, affectionately called " Pris, " is hostess of the tea room. To her falls the lot of serving guests on the campus, regular dinner meetings of campus organizations as well as those who eat there daily. MRS. RENA SUBLETTE, known to the students on the campus as " Ma, " is hostess of Dorcas Hall. In an efficient manner, she serves friendliness as well as food — two things which bring health and happiness to all who become a mem- ber of her group. DEAN OF MEN DR. REID DAVIS, B.S., M.S., Ph.D., is the head of the Biology Department and Dean of Men. He is an admired faculty member and friend to the students, who will testify that he is one teacher who succeeds in making classes a pleasure. He can also tactfully control any situation at Adams Hall. In his happier moments he may be found hunting specimens or taking candid camera " shots " of unsuspecting victims. DEAN OF WOMEN MRS. DEE E. RICE, A.B., B.S., is professor of Latin and Dean of Women. In her charming way she is an excellent teacher and a gracious mother to all the women students on the campus, some of whom can be seen each day wend their way to Lovelace Hall for a " special permission. " She rules with a firm hand and yet so diplomatically that she continues to be a friend and adviser. MRS. F. M. BLYTHE Commerce B.A., University of Oklahoma, 1939. DR.

The president and vice-president are two of the most outstanding football players and the secretary one of the most outstanding girls on the campus. To these officers may we say congratulations for achieving these hon- ors. The class feels that it has chosen wisely and that you the officers will lead us in a fitting manner to receive our sheepskins.

We can tell by the excited look on the faces of the spectators just which way the game was going. This Homecom- ing game was one of the major attractions of the football season. Our cheering section was very enthusiastic and helped our boys toward a suc- cessful season. When our team employed devas- tating offenses and defenses, our loyal cheering squad was working just as earnestly. As in all activities at Union, these two groups worked to- gether for the Alma Mater. im ATHLETIC DIRECTORS In the promotion of athletics Union University is indeed for- tunate to have a quartet of men like hlarry Hurt, athletic director; Fred DeLay, head coach; John " Skeeter " Baily, backfield and assistant coach; and hlarry Johnsey, line and freshman coach, to handle the atlhetic activities. hHarry hlurt, athletic director, takes care of the majority of the business end of the athletic affairs for Union. This job also requires the athletic director to arrange all the schedules for the school in both football and basketball, and certainly he should be complimented and remembered for the way he has handled the many problems which have confronted him. Fred DeLay is finishing his fourth year as head mentor for the Union University athletic teams. During this time Coach DeLay has established a very enviable record both with his football and basketball teams. Hlis football teams have ranked high in the S. A. A. A. confer- ence, and the bulldog cagers have not been much lower than the grid teams in rankings. John " Skeeter " Baily, assist- ant coach and backfield coach for the bulldog gridders, has made quite a name for himself by the way he has handled f-he backfield department of Un on football teams. Skeeter is a Tennessee graduate, and really knows his football. When back- field strategy is needed John Baily is the man to approach. Ripper Johnsey returned to his Alma Mater to coach the bulldog line and to handle the freshmen gridders. - e Is to be commended for the way he has toiled with his charges. Rip has coached three years at Union, not only as a football coach but as the freshman basketball mentor. The faculty and student body of Union are indeed proud of the way these men have carried out their respective duties, and if they maintain their standard in the future as the have in the past Union ' s athletics have a bright outlook. Shown in picture are: hlarry hHurt, Fred DeLay, Skeeter Baily, and Ripper Johnsey.

Out of their tough nine-game schedule which included Ole Miss and Southwestern the Delay proteges waded out with a string of six wins against three losses and a marvelous record of gridiron achievements under almost every type of circumstances. Their score sheet showed a total of 165 points racked up by the Cardinal and Creamers while their less aggressive opposi- tion ran against them with a tally of only 91 points. The season was inaugurated with a breather UNION FOOTBALL Efe UNION FOOTBALL when the Bulldogs trundled off down to Ole Miss and took a fair-sized licking In a September sun that would have taken the undershirt off the Statue of Liberty, hlovlous, HHapes, and Com- pany won the torrid tilt by the wide margin of 37-0, which wasn ' t indicative of the excellent game played by the small Kennel squad. Taggin ' along behind the gridders was a train load of quiet, sedate, and peace-loving supporters that would have made a firemen ' s convention look like a Mohammedan funeral. That was only go- ing down there. A howling mob, reigning chaos with reverberating din and disaster cannonading wildly and savagely back and forth across the bulging coaches driving the san berserk and the Insane berserker constituted the return trip of the defeated-on-the-fleld-but-not-In-spirit fans from that hectic affair.

KEY PETE GARRETT BILL WILSON WILLSE HILL JAMES JONES WILLIAM HUDSON ROBERT WILLIAMS CLETUS WRAY BILL LEFTWICH Some of the stronger eventually recuperated from that jaunt and a few days later in a sub- dued fas hion they greeted the crowd from Austin Peay with love and kisses and then went on to play them that night. It was a fine game. The Bulldogs took their knitting along and for the first half of the fray tried to learn how to purl one and drop two. In fact, if the home team crossed the enemy goal line In the first two frames it was done under the cover of high subterfuge while everybody was absorbing as- pirins to alleviate the monotony. However, an awakened group sauntered out on the field after the intermission and proceeded to shellac the visitors by some four touchdowns before they quit with a 28-0 game under their nightgown. Following that conference the Bulldogs gave a powerful and superior Southwestern bunch a whole lot of trouble before they bowed nobly before a terrific onslaught by the visitors. Only UNION FOOTBALL k UNION FOOTBALL once did the DeLay machine waltz across the end zone to score on the Memphians as they dropped the tilt 27-6. A week later the Delta squad dropped in for a little formal scrimmage and before a crowd that wasn ' t large enough to have a candymaking the Bulldogs started a scoring feat that left the vis- itors so far behind the eight ball that they couldn ' t have seen the moon with a periscope. This was perhaps the best game that the Bull- dogs turned in during the entire season as they walked off with this 41-0 game. A heartbreaker identified the next scrap when the team from Murray State swept into Jackson with a hundred piece band, four or five pretty drum majors and a set of signals, and then limped back out again after emerging from a close game with the fr ayed decision.

DIXON HUGH COLTHROP HARLEY BAKER HANK TANNER pers, cat naps, bad luck, and most of the breaks combined to give Union the third loss of the season by a close 21-14 score. And then the squad got the wanderlust and took off into Arkansas to meet Jonesboro State on their home stomping grounds. A fatigued team and drooping spirits worked together to almost thwart the Union crowd but Intermittent bursts of something or other gave the Arkansas gridders enough opposition to send them behind a three touchdown loss. The next win came with the next game when the Bulldogs met a Middle Tennessee Teacher group that brought with them every trick they could find at Murfreesboro, but that wasn ' t enough and they fell before a clicking Union style of play I 3-0. The afternoon of that day had seen one of the largest parades to clutter up a hlomecoming. UNION FOOTBALL UNION FOOTBALL Some days later the Jackson team busted nog- gins with the Cumberland eleven on the frozen turf at Lebanon in an Arctic breeze that would have discouraged an Eskimo. Unfortunately, the two squads were outfitted in almost the same color jersles and some difficulty arose during the time of playing as to who was what. The Union representatives took that frigid affair by a 20-0 count. As a grand finale to a good season the Bull- dogs made a final flourish in a grandiose fashion when they whitewashed the Mem phis Teachers at Memphis by the conclusive score of 22-6. It was colder that New Year ' s Eve in Alaska and it had rained, leaving two large puddles situated strategically on the forty-yard lines. A strong icy wind swept down incessantly upon a small handful of chilled spectators as the two squads vied for supremacy on the soggy turf. But a more powerful Bulldog reigned supreme and un- der the terrific driving of the offense and tenac- ity of a potent defense the Union University eleven rang the bell on another football schedule in a glorious manner. Much has been said about the success of the varsity football team, but the boys on the fresh- man squad do quite a lot to make a varsity team. They receive the hard knocks from the upper classmen, and nothing is ever said about them. The Bullpups of 1940 were small in number but upheld their tradition in a very distinguished manner. A freshman team plays very few games in a season but serves as a scouting team for the varsity. They run the plays of the opponents for a week before the varsity squad plays them. They represent sometimes as many as ten or eleven teams in a season, according to how many games are on the schedule. The freshman crop for the 1940 season played only one game and won, beating Martin Junior College of Pulaski, Tennessee, 13 to 0. Not having enough for a full team the squad bor- rowed a few boys from Adams Hall, who wanted to play. The two teams locked horns and neither were able to score in the first half. Midway in the third quarter Tommy Smith, wingback for the bullpups attempted a field goal from the ten-yard line, but a Martin man blocked it. Smith picked the ball up and ran to the one-yard line, but it wasn ' t enough for a first down, and Martin took over. The punt from behind their goal line was futile for Northington, 190-pound fullback for the " frosh " broke through and blocked the kick and recovered the ball for a bullpup tally. Smith ' s try for the extra Doini was no good, and the bullpups were ahead 6 to 0. Late in the last period the " frosh " scored again. Lee Frye, diminutive back, rifled a pass to Vin- son, who was downed on the Martin 5-yard line. From there Northington blasted through the Mar- tin line for a touchdown. Frye converted, mak- ing the score 13 to in favor of the bullpups. The game ended with no further scoring. The freshmen played a great defensive game, as the Martin team never made a serious threat. In fact, they never penetrated the " frosh " thirty- yard line. In the picture are sitting left to right: Smith, Nield, Frye, Hill. Second Row: Montague, North- ington, Schustarich, Cobb, Cook.

B A S K E T B A L L The Bulldog basketball squad was the victim of very bad luck this year. Everything was on the sunny side until J. B. Key, captain and floor nnan deluxe, left school. Having to break sophomore Joe Walters Into the lineup wasn ' t easy, but it turned out for the best, and things had begun to run as smooth as every. Then Raymond Judy, high point man for the Union quintet last season, had to leave school because he developed a serious lung trouble. This was a dam- aging blow, because Judy showed signs of being even better than the previous season. Again a sophomore had to be groomed for starting duties, this time it was Casey Jones who came through in fine style. Casey Vinson, a Junior College transfer, was another eager who was playing his first season for the Bulldogs, but was never very awkward to the Union style of play. The Union basket ballers started the season by de- feating Bethel College from McKenzie, Tennessee, and closed a very mediocre season by dropping the last game to a powerful Delta State team. The highlight of the season was the contest against the world cham- pion New York Celtics before a full house in the Jack- son Armory. The Celtics won by a four-point margin. When the season had closed Union had won only six games while dropping fourteen. The Bulldog cagers had defeated Middle Tennessee twice, Bethel College, Southern Theological Baptist Seminary, and had won two more games while losing two each to Murray State, Delta State, Memphis State, New York Celtics, Austin Peay and only one to Freed-hHardeman College. Union carried ten men on this year ' s squad, and all ten payed a spirited brand of ball typical iS: ' . of a Union basketball team. The men were: John Crowe, captain and forward and was high scorer for the season. In one game Crowe bagged 28 points. hHarley Baker, guard, was the best floor nnan on the squad and also was the best ball handler; Baker was a very valuable man to the Bulldogs. Joe Walters was the other guard in the starting lineup and was a ball hawk. Casey Vinson was next to Crowe in scoring honors and was an excellent defensive man. Casey Jones, sophomore, broke into the starting lineup in mid-season and gave an excellent account of himself. Raymond Davis was an excellent guard and played his last season for the Union cagers this winter. Cotton Bates is another senior who has played enviable ball for the Bulldog quintet. Raymond Judy was going like wildfire until his illness caused his departure from school. hHoss Wilson played his last year at forward and racked up quite a few points. Melvin Cornwell was the tenth member of the squad and played a forward position. Melvin is a junior and was a very good floor man and was a scrapper after the ball. Top row, left to right: Bates, Baker, Cornwell, Crowe, Davis. Bottom row: Jones, Judy, Vinson, Walters, Wilson.
