As we proudly present our 1954 yearbook, we the " Chieftain " staff, sincerely hope that it will serve many purposes: To picture our faculty, students, and activities. To enable newcomers to learn the names of their classmates. To show relatives and friends something of the life at West Georgia College. But most of all, to recall for our graduating sophomores the memories of by-gone years. • • .

Yes, we dedicate this 1954 Chieftain to MISS MARION CRIDER. faedicatfcn 15 My, Joe, what long orms you nave ii,i II p. 1 TIF-HTTW.ll . ' . V. • " ' F ' Uv ' I ' H ' ! ' • ,..,. J$ " ' . ' ) !

President One big happy family is the re- lationship of the students and fac- ulty here at West Georgia Col- lege. The absence of our regis- trar. Miss Katie Downs, who at- tended Ohio State University dur- ing the winter quarter, left a very noticeable vacancy for many of the students. As in other years, we have had some additions to the faculty which are: Mrs. Marie Grice, cashier and secretary to the pres- ident; Mr. James Overton, In- structor in Commerce and library assistant; Mr. Richard Howeii, choir director; Miss Dorothy Mc- Nabb, Woman ' s P.E. teacher; and Mr. William Sessions, English teacher. We were very fortunate in hav- ing a number of foreign students with us this year. Chhaya Rudra came to us from India, Boonsom Araworop from Thailand, and Tri- antafyllos Triantafyllou from Greece.

SOPHOMORE CLASS As we look back through these two years at West Georgia, we cherish the good times which we have had together. We hope we have proved ourselves to be real campus lead- ers and may our experience be the stepping stones for the Freshman Class. Through the eagerness, enthusiasm, and winning personal- ities of our classmates we have paved the way toward winning higher honors and great rec- ognition for West Georgia College. To you, the graduating class of 1954, we dedicate this section of our annual. Good luck, Sophomores, may you have much success in the future. JAMES RHODES COOK " Jimmy " Griffin, Ga.

WEST GEORGIA! The West Georgian is rated among the best junior college newspapers in the South. It has received rec- ognition on several occasions from the Associated Col- legiate Press. The paper stresses student expression, student solution to problems, and campus relations. Work on a newspaper such as the West Georgian gives students an opportunity to express themselves in writing and editing as a form of journalistic experi- ence. The paper for this school year was under the faculty guidance of Mr. William Sessions. Rebecca Lee served as editor for the ' 53- ' 54 school year. Associate editors were Marion Smith and Jimmy Cook; Jimmy Edwards served as associate the last two quarters to replace Jimmy Cook, who transferred from W.G.C. Circulation manager Shirley Mintz and business managers James Duffey and Larry Boggs get together with staff photog- rapher Elliott Hill for a gab test. The sports staffs and typists pool their talents together to form one of the best college papers in this region. They are: seated, A. Davis and Barbara Stubbs; standing, Betty Stubbs, B. Hall, J.

" For a number of years it has been awarded an honor rating by the Associated Collegiate Press, and of course, our ambition this year is to live up to these honors. We have worked hard, but we could not have reached our goal without the cooperation of every member of the student body and fac- ulty. It was not easy, but we sincerely hope you will join us in saying, " It was well worth the trouble. " The Staff Top Right: Bud Jones, Coy Short, Barbara Hall and J. C.

The Stu- dent Council is composed of class officers, members of dormitory councils, and representatives from the day students. Under the guidance of Mr. Floyd Wirsing, the council has sponsored the Homecoming Dance and activi- ties, the Sweetheart Dance, and ar- ranged for recreation on Saturday nights. They have tried to improve the meals and general living condi- tions at West Georgia. The Student Government has proved itself a government of the students, by the students, and for the students.

One of the most important organizations on the campus is the Voluntary Religious Associa- tion, which is a non-denominational organization open to all college students interested in enrich- ing the Christian atmosphere in their own lives and on the campus. A council to guide its ac- tivities is composed of students who wish to give their time for the furtherance of these activities. One of the highlights of the year is the Re- ligious Emphasis Week sponsored by the V.R.A. during fall quarter. This year the speaker was the Rev. S. Wilkes Dendy of Dalton, Georgia. The theme chosen was " You Can Follow In His Steps. " Mr. Dendy stressed the fact that you do not have to be a minister or missionary to serve Christ. The main activity of the council is a vesper service held each Wednesday night. It also spon- sors the Freshman Reception, and this year it helped a needy family at Christmas. The V.R.A. Council is composed of freshman and sophomore boys and girls who volunteer their services to religious activities on the campus. Installation of V.R.A.

This past football season was far from be- ing successful, but, the sportsmanship and fortitude exemplified by the West Georgia Braves, made bright the defeats they suffered. The squad was green, being made up mostly of freshmen; but this was not the reason for the defeats. As the season progressed the Braves found that a junior college was no match for the superiority of a senior college. The basic idea of athletics at West Georgia is not the victory, but the valuable experience of how to win and how to lose. No other group of boys could have had more fun on their trips in the " Blue Goose " than the Braves of ' 54. In their minds will long remain the anxious moments they experienced waiting for the bands to stop playing and the thrill of putting on their cleats. Co-Captain Bill Potts plunges through Hiwassee ' s line for extra point. Charles Essex, Gerald Horn and Dan Bryant aid in tally. 69 » mmmm Bill Potts bowls over opponent in Homecoming game.
