An integral part of that stream is you. Although your ideas may never save a nation or cause a revolution, still they are important to the daily action at Florence State. The Lion ' s Den, Bibb Graves hiall, and Wesleyan are inani- mate obiects; yet as you and other students enter, they take on life. These objects, though they be only stone, mortar, and steel are caused to live by their acceptance in your life. The outside v orld first sees Florence State as a whole, then the student himself. The passer-by may never notice the stu- dent; yet. it takes the individual students working together to make Florence State. It is to these individuals— YOU, THE STUDENT— that we dedicate this I960 Diorama, with the hope that each student will find here the ingredients that have given meaning to " Florence State I960.

Norton came to Florence State he held firnnly the belief that one should leave a place in better condition than it was upon his arrival. So, he inaugurated football and gave Florence State a new scholastic progrann, including expansions in all fields. Since his conning, students have seen dreams materialized so that to- day Florence State is one of the most popular small colleges in the South. This could have happened only with a man possessing patience to the degree that Pres, Norton does. 36 DEAN TURNER W. ALLEN The Character of Florence State College is shaped, in part, by those men and women who comprise its Administrative Staff. Lead- ing this staff is Dr. Turner W. Allen, Dean of the College. Dean Allen is serving his fourth year in this capacity and has conscien- tiously epitomized the faithful, diligent work required of an Admin- istrator. He is always ready to adopt the concerned expression when students confront him with their multiple problems, or he is ready to deliver a characteristic chuckle when humor should be inserted. Dean Allen ' s character and work exemplifies that of the finest, thus naturally commanding a warm feeling from both Faculty and Student Body. 37 GOVERNOR JOHN PATTERSON By virtue of his office Governor Patterson is President of the State Board of Education. We have seen Education in Alabama get one of the largest boosts ever under his Superior Executive Ability. 38 ADMINISTRATORS SHAPE COLLEGE ' S CHARACTER Top Row: Abel F.

The first time you look at your I960 Diorama it represents the excite- men of the past year ' s events. Several years fronn now you will derive amusement from the book, and twenty-five years from now the I960 Diorama will bring nostalgia with it. The Diorama staff, composed of various and sundry editors, associate editors, staff assistants, and just plain workhorses has worked late into the night on many occasions to bring to the student body the best yearbook possible. Realizing that every Florence State student has his own ideas as to what a yearbook should be and what it should say, we cannot hope to satisfy everyone — we can only at- tempt to produce as completely and as effective as possible what we feel is a representative picture of " Florence State, I960.

Seven plays later fullback Larry Yancey plunged over from the one foot line and the Lions were out in front 14-7 fol- lowing Graham ' s PAT. Tech came roaring back after taking the kickoff moving the ball to the Florence one where Shoemaker plunged over for the tally. Wright again tied the score with 14 minutes remaining. Florence ' s Bobby Jackson and TPI ' s Wright each tried field goals from their 25 but both were wide. The passing of tailback Max Burleson and the outstanding defensive play of Harold Graham caught TPI, the pre-season favorite for the OVC Championship, off guard and the Lions came back to Florence with an upset 14-14 tie in the season opener for both teams. Florence State ' s big play came when tailback Max Burle- son and wingback Ken Gunter combined their talents in a long, soaring pass play. With the ball on the State 41, Gun- ter shot down the middle, grabbed Burleson ' s pass on the Tech 40, and went all the way for Florence ' s first tally. Tech didn ' t waste any time getting back into the game, however. Although there were no spectacular plays in their drive, the Golden Eagles ground out 66 yards to score. Power runner, Ralph Bayles was the big man most of the way. After quarterback Gorden Mason had passed to the two, Boyles crashed in the score, and Wright added the PAT to knot the score at 7-7.

The high wind of 50 miles per hour all but grounded the Lions ' powerful passing attack and jeopardized the Racers ' air game. The Lions struck late in the opening quarter when fullback Larry Yancey crashed through the center for 28 yards and paydirt. Down- field blocking by Darrell Blalock and Carl Hannah made the run possible. Tater Graham missed the try for PAT and the Lions led 6-0. The Racers tied the score with 3:15 left in the first half when Jack Norrls connected with Buddy Searcy on a short flat pass and the fleet-footed end evaded Lion defenders for 87 yards to put Murray on the scoreboard. The try for the point after was no good. Robert Douthitt shot straight up the center for 16 yards and the winning touchdown early in the final period. Bob Jackson ' s kick for point after was good and the Lions had their first victory of the season, I 3-6.

It took the toe of Bobby Jackson, a freshman halfback, to produce the victory. His 42 yard field goal, with a minute and twenty seconds remaining, meant a 16-14 dif- ference as the Lions remain unbeaten. They have one tie. With 3 minutes and 32 seconds remaining in the first period, Guin Holland punted from the FSC 48, and when the Arkansas State safety fumbled, Smith recovered the loose ball for the Lions. Douthitt slammed forward to the one yard line and Yancy powered his way over for the Lions ' first tally. Once again Holland punted, this time from the Arkansas State 46, and again the Arkansas safety dropped the ball with Tuffy Hudson falling on the loose pigskin for the Lions with Yancey driving over for the score making it 12-0. Jackson ' s try for the PAT was good and the Lions were out in front by 13-0. • Arkansas State came roaring back to go 64 yards in 13 plays which was finally capped off with Quarterback Bill Cardwell ' s pass to Don Miller for 6 yards and 6 points. The PAT was added with only 58 seconds in the first half. Early in the fourth period the Indians struck once more, eating up 70 yards In 12 plays. Cardwell pitched to Don Bently for 24 yards, to Miller for 17 to set it up at the FSC 17 yard line. Cardwell then ran the keeper to get the touchdown. The conversion was good and the Indians went out In front 14-13. Then came the deciding factor in the game. An exchange of punts saw the Lions start a drive on their own 35. Then Douthitt completed his only pass of the game down to the Indian 42. Power man Larry Yancey then carried five times down to the State I I yard line. At this point Jackson came In, but a penalty for delay of the game put the ball back on the Indian 22. The rest is history.

The triumph, the third of the season against one tie, enabled the Lions to tangle with Southeastern Louisiana with an undefeated record. The first quarter saw the Lions drive 99 yards for their first score. The drive started when a Livingston punt rolled dead on the one yard line, and from there 13 plays were needed to cross the goal line. Fullback Larry Yancey, tailback Robert Douthitt, and wingback Ken Gunter alternated as carriers. Douthitt shot over the final three yards over his own right tackle with one min- ute and eleven seconds left in the first stanza. Bob Jackson split the uprights to put the Lions out in front 7-0. Midway of the second quarter, the FSC ' ers began moving the ball again. After a Lion drive stalled on the FSC 30, a Guin Holland punt was fumbled by Livings- ton safety and end Bill Dickinson recovered on the Tiger 29? Holl and, the freshman fullback, drove straight ahead for eleven, and then eight yards on the first two downs, and then added five more. Four plays later he cracked right tackle from the one yard line with 2 minutes re- maining in the first half. Jackson ' s try for the conversion was wide to the left and the score stood at 13-0. Livingston more or less dominated the third quarter, as the stanza ended the Tigers were on the FSC 24, but the defense got tougher and the Lions took the ball over to their own 10. From here the Lions controlled the ball for several plays, but were finally forced to kick. Then an exchange of fumbles took place before Lyie. Under- wood jumped on a loose pigskin at LSC 38. Then with movement hampered by penalties Douthitt plunged into- the end zone with 47 seconds left in the game. The pass for the two pointer was good but was nulli- fied by a penalty. Jackson ' s boot was wide, giving the Lions a 19-0 win, their third of the year.

The Florentines, had they been endowed with a little more luck could easily have been the victors. It was a nip and tuck battle all the way as the teann with the ball at the right time was able to turn the tide. Fullback Larry Yancey crashed into the end zone midway of the opening period to climax a 16 play 76 yard march. Jackson added the point after and Florence eleven found themselves with a 7-0 lead. Yancey skirts in for 23 yards Yancey scores from fhe one yard line The visiting Lions took only four minutes to score follow- ing the kickoff with Lee going over from the 25. C. J.

Actually the victory was never in doubt after the middle of the second quarter, in which the Lions scored 20 points to practically put the game out of reach. The Lions drew first blood in the opening frame, as Ken Gunter got loose on the wingback reverse and scampered 31 yards for the score. Bob Jackson added the PAT. Touchdown number two was set up on a fumble recovery by Wayne Sanderson at the Troy five yard line. Douthitt then skirted five yards for pay dirt and Jackson ' s conversion was again successful. But the Red Wave wasn ' t ready to give up. Their 145 pound halfback Frank Sadler took the kickoff on the one and raced down the sidelines for 99 yards. The place kick was good and the score stood at 14-7. Florence then blew the contest wide open. On an exchange of punts Burleson returned the ball to the Troy 33. After Yan- cey posted a one yard gain, the tailback then fired to Gunter for a 33 yard scoring play. Jackson converted and the score stood at 21-7 with 6 minutes left in the half. Seconds later end Henry Prater recovered a fumble on the Troy 33. Only one play was needed to score as Guin Holland bulled for the 33 yards. Jackson ' s try for point was blocked and the score stood at 27-7 at the half. The third quarter passed without consequence for either side as both teams exchanged punts numerous times. The Lions struck for their last score early in the fourth quar- ter as Burleson returned a punt to his own 30. After only three plays Burleson shot up the middle for 58 yards and the score. Jackson ' s try for point was good. In the closing minutes of the game a Holland punt was returned to the FSC 35. After a three yard pickup Atkinson raced 32 yards for the score for Troy.

Jackson ' s try for point after was wide and the Lions led 20-14. It was at this point that the Raiders ' superior depth began to tell. They only needed three plays to move 72 yards for their next counter. Gains of 32 and 15 yards put the ball on the 25 where Purvis scored. The PAT was good and MTSC took the lead for the first time, 21-20. A recovery started the visitors moving again as they used nine plays to move the ball 53 yards with Moore going in for the score and Adams adding the extra point to make the score 28-2 I . The final TD for the Raiders was scored by Puryear to climax a 72 yard drive. The try for conversion was no good and the score stood 34-20. The final score for the Lions was another of many spec- tacular plays. The Raiders appeared to have another touch- down with less than a mi nute to play as they drove to the Lion 10. But a pass was intercepted by center Lyie Under- wood and he roared down the field for 90 yards for the longest run of the year for the Lions and a score. The two point conversion failed and the Raiders were the winners seconds later 34-26.

The Lions were the first to get into the scoring column as they went 58 yards in ten plays. The big play was a 45 yard gallop by Burleson to the MTSC 12. Harold " Tator " Graham sneaked over from the one after a first down was picked up at the two. Bob Jackson split the uprights to make the score 7-0. The Raicfers made their power known shortly as they ate up 66 yards in I I plays. Fullback Gend Windham went 18 yards for the tally with 13 minutes remaining in the second period. The attempt for the two points was no good. Late in the first half the Lions were back in business. Hoi- land ' s punt was downed on the one yard line. Watson punt- ed to the Raiders ' 35 and Burleson returned to the 29. He then passed to Bobby West at the 23 and then to Neal Hunt at the 10 for a first and goal. On the next play Burle- son went around right end for the score. Again, Jackson ' s toe was true and the score stood 14-6. Middle Tennessee was quick to get back in the second half as they went 73 yards for the score. The try for the two points was good and the score stood tied at 14-14. Not to be outdone the Florence State eleven struck back as they moved the pigskin 73 yards in five big plays. The homecoming crowd got their money ' s worth as left end Bobby West went up between two defenders to bring down 192 A completed pass in the making The first plane trip made by the FSC gridders FSC 7 • McNEESE 28 A modern means of transportation for the FSC Lions did not prove to be a modern means of winning a football game as the Lions journeyed to Lake Charles to be defeated by a strong McNeese eleven, 28-7. The ' 59 Lions were the first team In Florence State history to go to an athletic contest by air. But In the meantime they brought their record against Louisiana teams to for 5. But to get back to the game, the Lions started out on what looked like a rout when Ken Gunter got loose on a wingback reverse and galloped 58 yards for the score with only 3:15 gone in the game. Bob Jackson split the uprights for a 7-0 lead and this was all for the Lions as the CoAvboys reversed the picture. The Louisiana team moved 67 yards in nine plays with Don Breaux crashing over tackle for the score. Kahn tied the score at 7-7 with the PAT early in the second period. The action was Just beginning to roll as left halfback Ted Brevelle returned a Lion punt from his own 20 to the Lion 38 to set up their second score. In three plays right half Olan Clark scooted 12 yards for the TD, and again Kahn ' s kick was good to make It 14-7 at halftlme.

The big man in that drive was quarterback Viator, who broke loose on a third down quarterback-sneak to move the ball 45 yards to the two. Kahn kicked true again, and the hosts were way out In front, 21-7. The final score came in the early minutes of the fourth canto as quarterback Breaux raced up the middle for the score on a 30 yard gallop. The PAT was successful and the final score read McNeese 28, Florence 7. The Lions were able to move the ball into McNeese ter- ritory several times, being inside the 20 on three occasions and to the ten once but were never able to capitalize on these opportunities. 193 FSC 22 AUSTIN PEAY 8 The Lions got the insurance marker with 2:19 left in the game, as guard Darell Blalock Intercepted a Governor pass at the 35 of Austin Peay. On the first play, tailback Robert Douthitt cut over center and raced 35 yards for the score. Bob Jackson split the uprights with the conversion, to make the final score, 22-8. Burleson stopped by a host of tacklers In the final home appearance of the year the Florence State Lions defeated the Governors of Austin Peay, 22-8. All told, it was a hard-fought and cold victory for the Lions, as some 1000 fans braved the frigid weather to watch the activities. Florence got the early lead in the game as end Henry Prater jumped on an Austin Peay fumble on the Gov- ernors ' 30. The pigskin rested on the six following four run- ning and a 19-yard pass play. Tator Graham went over on the next play and Jackson kicked the PAT and Florence had the lead 7-0 which stood at halftime. The Governors got into business in the third quarter, as a Guin Holland punt rolled dead on the 12. With a third down on the 19, halfback Bert Simpson (a Garden City, Ala., product) took a handoff, shot over left tackle and raced unmolested 8 I yards for the score. The try for the two point play was good as Moore passed to end Steve Deaver and the visitors had an 8-7 lead with I 1 :20 left in the third stanza. A march of 74 yards in 18 plays pushed Florence to a 15-8 advantage. Tailback Max Burleson climaxed the drive by passing the last six yards to Petty Exell for the TD and then fired to wingback Jimmy Browlow for the two pointer.

Vanderbilt simply had too much class and depth for the Lions. The heavily favored Commodores were held scoreless the first quarter and were leading only 13-7 at halftime, but the final 30 minutes proved to be no contest. Florence State ' s only score of the afternoon came as the result of an in- terception. Jimmy Brownlow snatched a Jim McKee pass out of the air on the 42 yard line and raced 58 yards down the sidelines for the score. Bob- by Jackson converted and Vandy led 13-7 at this point. Although the Lions were way outclassed, they still had some bright spots. Tailback Robert Douthitt gained 45 yards in nine carries, and Guin Hol- land, kicking from his own end zone more than once, did some fine punting with a 36.3 average for eight punts. Harold Graham and Dave Martin were the outstanding defenders, as were Lion guards, Darell Blalock, Joe Beard, Bill Anderson, and Wayne Sanderson contributing their share. Graham led both teams in individual tackles with II. Vanderbilt displayed a well-oiled offensive machine as they piled up yardage in great amounts. The big halfback, Tom Moore, gained 58 yards in 1 I carries, and Tom Garden helped In the Commodore attack by picking up 84 yards in nine attempts. Quarterback Russ Morris contributed his share by hitting five of nine passes for 94 yards. Florence forced Vandy to work 21 minutes for its first marker. A nine- play 47 yard march was climaxed when the big fullback, Jim Burton, leaped over tackle from the one for the score. Morris converted and Vandy en- joyed a narrow 7-0 lead. The Commodores struck again just 48 seconds later. A Max Burleson pass was Intercepted by Morris on the 35 and returned to the 13. On the next play, Moore scooted around left end for the TD. This time the PAT was no good and the score was 13-0. It was at this point that Brownlow ' s Interception narrowed the margin and apparently steamed up Vandy for a second half outburst. Then touchdowns rained as the contest turned Into a rout. Tom Moore scored from the one yard line to cap a 57 yard drive. McKee raced I I yards on a keeper play to end a 32 yard march. This time Scot Trundle added the PAT. Vandy ' s last TD came as third stringer Terry Black passed 1 1 yards to Ron Miller as Commodore subs engineered a 64 yard drive. Trundle again kicked true. Except for Florence ' s great moment in the first half, the Lions threatened only one more time. They were rolling in the final minutes of the game, ne- gotiating 75 yards in 12 plays, when the final horn sounded and stopped the drive on the 12. This effort, far too short, came too late. The 42-7 score had been deter- mined and Vandy ' s third and fourth stringers were finishing up the game.

The only way we have to show our gratitude is by saying " Thanks " to: THE TAYLOR PUBLISHING COMPANY for their enduring patience and the ut- most in cooperation on their part. Many times they have taken mere outlines and have come forth with polished products. DAN GLENN STUDIOS for the remarkable and superior job it did on the feature and class photographs which have been the body of our book. Our gratitude also goes to Mr. Glenn, Mrs. Glenn, and Maudine Joiner for their kindness, and for extra photos and publicity coverage they helped us obtain free of charge. To all local people, merchants, friends, and newspapers, who helped us in carrying out the DIORAMA BEAUTY CONTEST and the publicity during the year. To our sponsor, MR. NELSON VAN PELT, and staff photographers JIMMY TRIMM AND PETE KELLEY, more than we can ever say. To GWEN WARE for her original art work, and the endless hours she dedicated to the " cause. " To BOB PROCTOR, STEVE EDMUNDSON, and WARNER CROWE for their help. To YOU, the student, for your faith and willingness, and necessary support and capital. And last, but certainly not least, THE FIRMS AND INDUSTRY whose advertise- ments pulled us out of the " hole " and largely made the I960 DIORAMA yearbook possible — They are FSC ' s true supporters and friends. Again we emphasize our thanks to those mentioned. THE STAFF OF THE I960 DIORAMA FLORENCE STATE COLLEGE (Ed. Note) I, Janelle Holley, as editor, wish to express the greatest possible thanks to Jim Gullett, Charles Pendley and to the best yearbook staff ' in the world, without whom there would never have been a yearbook. The only pay they receive is the fulfillment and satisfaction that comes with seeing their product live for years to come — a record of college life, dreams, and hopes. 289 Well, this is almost the end of the book, and we feel a certain bit of nostalgia about it that wasn ' t anticipated. You students made this book. We pre- served it for you in word and picture. In later years as you reminisce while turning the leaves of this book, we would like to review some of the world ' s happenings. Internationally, nationally, state, and local . . . We don ' t think any of you will forget Mr. Khrushchev ' s visit to the United States. He may not have expressed his appreciation for California ' s su- permarkets or for the cornfields of Iowa, but certainly he must have been Impressed and that memory of a working democracy must still lurk In his mind . . . Nationally, we lost great American statesmen and soldiers via death; such as Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, and General George Marshall. Politically, we have seen old questions arise again; e.g., " Will people change horses in the middle of a stream? " and " Can a Catholic become President? " Only later history will reveal this to us. In the sports world the New York Yankees fell from the Number One spot In the Baseball World by letting the " Little Hustling Chicago White Sox " hustle them out of the parks. Yet, the " Little Hustlers " lost steam and fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers by letting them claim the World Series title ... In past years all the boys ' rooms were filled with pin-ups of Jayne Mansfield, Marilyn Monroe, and others from PLAYBOY. But this has not been so prevalent this year. A strange concept caught the boys and their rooms were decorated with Rebel Flags and other Confederate Relics. One boy had discarded ! " I 290 his pin-ups, and on the wall appeared a large picture of Robert E. Lee. Girls, why is this happening? . . . " Let ' s take in a flick, " is still very popular annong the students. A few of the movies that made hits on campus were: in the field of Western movies, " The Hanging Tree " and " The Last Train From Gun Hill. " Maybe the good war pictures were limited to ' Never So Few. " " Ben Hur " was the Biblical Block- buster with its $15 million price tag. Among Hitchcock movies, Sir Alfred was at his best with " North by Northwest, " or some might challenge this with " Anatomy of a Murder " ... In the musical world, we had several hits such as El Paso, He ' ll Have To Go, Waltzing Matilda, Morgen, Waterloo, Battle of New Orleans, while the national theme song for all nudist colonies was Running Bear . . . Among the best-selling books were Exodus, Lady Chatterley ' s Lover, The Return to Peyton Place, Dear and Glo- rious Physician and many others . . . While on the local scene the world ' s largest single-lift lock was dedicated here in Muscle Shoals on the Tennessee River, its total cost being something over thirty- five million dollars . . . Bowling became a real pas- time in the Tri-Cities as a modern new bowling cen- ter went up in Sheffield and plans were announced for a million dollar one to be opened in Florence by [||| this fall . . . Well, while this area is " Busting at the Seams " we are closing and saying we enjoyed watching all these things and presenting them to you . . . We sincerely hope you have. 291 292 WE BELIEVE IN THE FLORENCE SPIRIT . . .
