Text from Pages 1 - 172 of the 1959 volume:

i From my constant vigil in the red clay hills surrounding West Georgia College I have observed every facet of her great history. I have seen students enter as lowly, frustrated rats and some leave possessing certificates or diplomas leading to various professions and others possessing degrees in elementary education. I have seen competent faculty members come and go, each having con- tributed to the history of the school. As two eras of progress have occurred and a third one has begun, I, the Spirit of West Georgia, have gained increasing confidence in my sons and daughters. IN RETROSPECT " Lot no, 99, Land district no. Lot No. 99 jQ.. y Qj.Q he numbers drawn by Lawrence Richardson of Columbia County in the land lottery of 1825. How vivid is that day in my memory, for that is the day I began my vigil from the red hills of Georgia. Mr. Richardson received title to approximately 200 acres of land " some- where west of the Chattahooche River. " In 1830 the land was sold at public outcry to settle a claim against Richardson. It brought $21, or about ten cents an acre. It passed into the hands of William A. Walsh, who never occupied the land. Obadiah Wright, who at that time was a recent immigrant to the frontier county, secured the land and made some clearings and improvements. Before the end of the decade it was again sold at the fall of the sheriff ' s hammer. By this time cotton was now king and the red soil of the land provided a new means of wealth. Thomas Bonner from Clarke County bought it and immediately engaged Y. Hendrix to construct a permanent dwelling house there. This was completed in 1844. The big house stood then on a little knoll about halfway between the road and our present drive. Twenty yards farther back, where Adamson Hall now stands, was the kitchen, in which the house servants cooked the food which was brought into the dining room on large trays. A commissary room joined the kitchen, and a smokehouse stood not far away. Across the road in front of the dwelling were the barns, the gin house and a cotton press. The slave quarters were strung along the ridge from the rear of the kitchen to the present site of the Admin- istration Building. The burying ground for the slaves was the area now occupied by Melson Hall. In 1860 I sadly watched as Bonner ' s two sons marched off with a company of volunteers to the tune of Jim Patrick ' s flute. Late in 1863, several thousand federal cavalry under General Stoneman, marching from Selma, Alabama, to join Sherman below Jonesboro, passed along the road which now fronts the campus. Some of their foragers raided the smokehouse and barns, taking hams, shoulders, milk, eggs, flour, corn, and hay. They did not burn anything and did not molest the women. Peace came, followed by reconstruction and eco- nomic and social adjustments. The land in time became the property of the Sharp family, and in 1906 it was deeded to the board of trustees of the Fourth District A and M School. The idea of the Agricultural and Mechanical Schools originated with Governor Joseph M. Ter- rell in 1902, but the bill creating them was not passed by the General Assembly until 1906. The citizens of CarroUton and Carroll County donated the ponderous sum of $39,000, with hghts and water for ten years, for the establishment of the Fourth District School. Of this amount $9,000 was paid for two hundred and seventy acres of land, which was bought from B. A. Sharp. The first two buildings, the boys ' dormitory, now Mel- son Hall, and the Administration Building, were erected by Mandeville and Aycock, contractors, for $30,000, which represented the actual cost of building, plus one per cent. Each bedroom had a double bed, a combination dresser and washstand, a study table, a washstand set, two straight chairs, a Hot Stuff Heater, and shades. The classrooms, domestic science depart- ment, dining hall, and kitchen in the Administra- tion Building were adequately equipped. The price of board the first month per pupil was seven dollars and thirty-five cents, which repre- sented the actual cost of provisions and fuel. Dur- ing the first thirteen years, the board rarely ex- ceeded eleven dollars. Professor J. H. Melson became the school ' s first principal and served for the first thirteen years of its life. Much of the success of the A. and M. School was due to the efforts of Professor Melson during the time he headed the institution. Melson Hall was named in his honor. The A. and M. School flourished until America ' s entry into World War I in 1917 brought sadness I J I I ' to the campus as many students, alumni, and fac- ulty left to defend their country. The school sur- vived the " Boll-Weevil Depression " of 1920, at which time I. S. Ingram became its head. Enter West Georgia From my lofty height, I wit- nessed in the late 1930 ' s a col- lapse in farm prices. Suddenly, because of a rapid growth of consolidated high schools which overlapped the work of the A. and M. Schools, there was an immediate need for a revision of organizations and objectives. In the place of separate boards of trustees for individual schools and colleges, the state legislature set up a Board of Regents composed of laymen empowered to receive a lump appropriation for higher educa- tion and distribute it to the representative schools according to their needs. I had the high honor of being godfather for West Georgia College, the in- fant daughter of this wise Board of Regents which received its inspiration and authority from the Reorganization Act for Higher Education under the administration of Governor Richard Russell. The Board had abolished all District A. and M. Schools in 1932 and created new institutions, among which was West Georgia College who opened her eyes for the first time, April 15, 1933, combining Bowdon State College, Powder Springs A. and M. School, and Carrollton A. and M. School. Located in Carrollton, it was to be a junior college whose purpose was to emphasize teacher education. Irvine S. Ingram, the former principal of the Fourth Dis- trict A. and M, School, was chosen by the Regents to set up and head the new institution at the origi- nal site of the Fourth District A. and M. School. Following the instructions of the Board under the Chancellorship of Dr. Philip Weltner, this in- fant school flung open with pride her doors to an enrollment of 228 students. Of these 49 transfers from other schools graduated June 6, 1934, in ceremonies in the city auditorium, with Governor Eugene Talmadge presenting the commencement address. realized that here was a man who was fully de- voted to his school, faculty, and students. Mr. In- gram stoo d gallantly while the entire state of Geor- gia asked this question: " Will West Georgia College go down to the pits of uselessness, or will it grow and prosper and become Georgia ' s leading junior college? " Today we can look about us and realize that this noble man maintained a stalwart faith in God as he led his students toward the school ' s original objective: " Progressive Development of Individuals to Take Their Places In and Improve Society. " As I watched West Georgia y grow physically, I also saw that she was establishing traditions that would be handed down from generation to generation. But more important was the development of academics, and of places of prominence made by faculty and students. During the year 1917, a second dormitory was erected to house women students. Due to the en- larged enrollment and a new need for additional space, the dining hall was moved to a new structure situated directly behind the academic building. In 1934 the Log Cabin was built for Home Economics classes and new class rooms were added under the old dining hall, which was formerly at the site of the present Science Building. General Extension classes of the University System were set up in 1934 to be within a radius of thirty miles of West Geor- gia College. These classes would allow teachers in the surrounding communities to receive further preparations for teaching their students. Thus even the older teachers acquired invaluable knowledge during the trial years of West Georgia. One may be assured that growth and prosperity of this great institution cannot be attributed to the prominence of academics alone. Often I ob- served men and women slave, study, and strive for dreams of achievement, not only for themselves but also for their beloved school. The President As I watched Mr. Ingram, I Glancing back, a vivid array of faces appear before me. There are faculty members and students who devoted time, energy, and talents so that future generations could profit from their efforts. During the depression years, competent faculty persons were available, and West Georgia College was fortunate to secure such services as those of Dr. James Boyd of Georgia Institute of Technol- ogy ;Dr. Robert Strozier, president of Florida State University; Miss Anne Weaver, Librarian; the late professor of English, Gordon Watson of Alabama State Teachers College; Dr. J, C. Bonner, Head of History Department, Georgia State College for Women; Dr. L. E. Roberts, President of Middle Georgia College; and others of comparable train- ing and experience. Dr. Gunn was the first Dean of West Georgia College and Miss Sara Ward was the first Dean of Women. Mr. Strozier was first Dean of Men. It would be quite difficult to verbally express the appreciation and esteem the students as well as fellow professors held for these people I have named. I saw the first scared, timid, and boisterous fresh- man don the now traditional red and blue rat caps which are still a very definite part of West Georgia life. The school colors of red and blue were selected by the faculty and approved by the student body. The red was to represent hardship, glory, and honor in addition to the main branch of the Red and Black in Athens. The blue was to represent hon- esty, sportsmanship, loyalty, and truthfulness. To- day ' s West Georgia students are just as proud to wave high the banners of red and blue as those were who set the precedent. After much dissension over the choice of the college emblem, the students adopted " Braves " in honor of Mcintosh, the half-breed Indian who aided the federal government in procuring a treaty with the Indians, which opened the western sectors of Georgia for settlement by the white man. In honor of the memory of Mcintosh, the horse block was procured and placed in the corner stone of Adamson Hall. From an editorial in The West Georgian, November 17, 1933, are taken these words, " The state of Georgia, the western part, and even our campus are marked by the Indians. " This horse block has been removed and now stands as a small monument near the east gate of the front campus. I become quite amused when I see today ' s stu- dents complaining about their one weekly assembly. While West Georgia began making history, she required her students to attend chapel twice each week. One chapel program was of a devotional nature and the other featured speakers and student- presented programs. Freshmen then were allowed two dates per week. For entertainment, couples and groups played games and " made conversation " . In the early thir- ties, social dancing was pronounced as a part of the physical education program by Dr. D. M. Bras- well, physical education director. He said, " A few years ago the person who danced was automatically stereotyped and placed in the great class of people who would, by dancing, wreck their lives and be of no worth to cooperative commonwealth. Hap- pily this attitude is changing by more and more people securing opportunities to see and experience real social dancing. " Today I smile as lovely belles and proud gentlemen maintain the tradition of dancing as the most popular source of recreation on the campus. Vespers were inaugurated during the first year of the life of West Georgia. These services were held ' weekly on Sunday evenings " to complete the day ' s devotional services and to give all a chance to experience Christian fellowship right here on the campus. " I am grateful that this facet of col- lege life has been retained by my sons and daugh- ters. Vespers has served through the years as a link between college, the students ' new home, and the churches of CarroUton. June 1, 1938, marked the adoption of the West Georgia College alma mater, which was written by Aaron Buckalew, class of 1939. Briefly these are only a few precedents, though revised somewhat, which have been handed down to West Georgia students. I watched with pride as West Georgia matured in respect of stature and as new meaning was added to the school as an educational institution. Growth In Stature To say that one organization had excelled more than all others would be to fail to give due credit to any of the many others that have been created. One of the most popular and note-worthy groups has been the choir which first began with separate men ' s and women ' s glee clubs. Through the years these have united to constitute a choir which is not only highly respected here in the college commu- nity, but also widely known for its annual series of appearances in various high schools, civic clubs, colleges, and churches. The West Georgia College Debating Team has played a prominent role as it has brought to life the words of its motto, " Investigation, Discussion, Ac- tion. " The first organization of West Georgia to appear publicly was the Y. M. C. A. chapter in- stalled by a student. Fielding Towns. Another group to achieve much renown has been Alpha Theta, first known as the Dramatics Club whose first presentation was Oscar Wilde ' s " The Impor- tance of Being Earnest " . Mu Zeta Aplha was cre- ated as an honor science club " To give recognition to outstanding students in the sciences and to offer a means of expressing themselves in the scientific field. " Alpha Psi, devoted to those students inter- ested in home economics, has not only given those students an opportunity to broaden their interests in this field, but has on many occasions assisted in social activities and in the making of costumes for plays. The first Chieftain, edited by Stewart Martin, present mayor of Carrollton, was published in 1934. Through the years it has been the aim of the annual to typify life at West Georgia and to present to its readers pleasant memories and important events of each school year. Behind the cherished year-books have gone myriad frustrated hours of ceaseless labor in efforts to give the students publications of which they could be proud. This effort was not in vain for on several occasions the Chieftain has won high- est awards in its class throughout the nation. The Chieftain ' s sister publication, The West Georgian, made its first appearance during the fall quarter of 1933 under the editorship of Franklin Dorsey Parker. Today this student publication rates among the best small college newspapers in the South and has received on several occasions honors from the Associated Collegiate Press. It stresses student expression, student solutions to problems and campus relations. The Voluntary Religious Association of which all students are considered members upon enroll- ment in the College, has continued for the duration of the life of West Georgia to stimulate the spiritual life and thought on the campus and is climaxed each year with " Religious Emphasis Week. " The Future Business Leaders of America and the Student National Educational Association were established to broaden the interests of students in those fields. The Veterans ' Club, organized in 1946, had as its purpose " to help each other in both social and school activities and to encourage more veter- ans to attend college. " During the years other clubs in coperation with various departments have been created. Some of these have been abolished or reorganized under new names, but many have helped in securing for West Georgia a reputation for providing a wide range of interest and opportunity for leadership and originality for its students. Since West Georgia was estab- lished to emphasize teacher edu- cation, obsers ' ' ance and practice teaching were vital parts of the educational pro- Laboratory Schools gram. The first laboratory school was Maple Street School of Carrollton, where work was begun in 1934. Some time later, a rural Carroll County school, Sand Hill, became the lab school. Thtough observance and internship, West Georgia students have had first hand experience of working closely with all types of students. This experience gave future teachers some degree of foresight into the years when they would stand before their own classes, endeavoring to raise the standard of educa- tion of this nation. In a program of extension, a new laboratory school was set up this year in the public school system of Newnan. I saw my sons and daughters West Georgia ' s pend their efforts in the for- Contributions To . . War Time Effort . outh Adminis- tration and the General Machine and Wood Shop. i After having been trained for vital war work such as welding, forge, sheet metal work, and machine shop work. West Georgia men and women were prepared to acquire positions in defense plants. The purpose of the Shop was to produce certain war materials and to train students who had enlisted in that work. Thus West Georgia aided in defending her America. War Cloud During World War II there was a sharp decline in enroll- ment. But with the end of that blow-striking era, came a record enrollment with an influx of veter- ans. Since then I have seen brave defenders of my country return to this great institution after hav- ing served in the Korean Conflict and the customary tenure of service to Uncle Sam. These men have an eminent place about the campus. West Georgia ' s library began Sanford Library i h 500 volumes in one of the present classrooms of the Administration Building, with Miss Anne Weaver as librarian. Miss Weaver and I have watched the continual growth of the library. The present building, Sanford Library, was built on the lower end of College Circle beyond Mandeville Hall in 1937. Named for the late Chancellor Steadman V. Sanford, the library in- cludes spacious reading rooms, stack rooms, and staff work rooms. Its collection of 14,500 books covers a wide range of subject matter and includes a reference collection, fiction, general reading, and a special section of Georgiana. I saw Mr. J. C. Bonner and £, , ,„ D. M. Braswell establish ath- " Tobacco Bowl " , . r wa i- letics as a part or west Georgia s varied program, since they believed that physical education should be recreation instead of an un- desirable task to be done. Such sports as tennis, basketball, and baseball were popular with the men. The girls participated in field hockey, soft ball, basketball, and archery. During World War II the boys ' varsity basketball team was crippled. But in 1946 they regained their territory. The Braves first eleven appeared in the fall of 1946 under Coach Earl Wheby. Although this first football team gained no victories, they set a prece- dent which is still enjoyed today. The most glorious sports event I have witnessed was the football sea- son of 1947. The West Georgia Braves were the first team to receive a victory and trophy from the newly created " Tobacco Bowl " in Tifton after defeating Norman Park. I watched those robust players, Kelly Grenga, " Tip " Goza, Angelo Grenga, Ray Robinson, and Johnny Robinson, to name just a few who fought so diligently for the well earned victory. I have seen a number of awards Awards 5g yp £qj. students as memorials to great men of the college. The Watson Award, established in 1940, is a memorial to Gordon Wat- son, late Professor of English. Five honorary cer- tificates are given each year to students who have attained distinction in their work, and who have exhibited those qualities of character, integrity, leadership, and courtesy. In 1953 the friends and classmates of Thomas A. Herndon, Jr. of the 1939 class established a memorial to him. Each year a sheepskin brochur is awarded to three or five freshmen who have best exhibited leadership, inter- est, participation, and scholastic standing in social science. As a memorial to the late Delbert Clark, nationally known leader in adult education, an award may be presented annually for outstanding achievements in the field of adult education. Foun- ders Day Awards may be presented annually to friends of West Georgia College who have made outstanding contributions to the cultural and eco- nomic life of the college. Numerous scholarship and loan funds are avail- able to worthy students. Because of these funds and awards, students have determined to go the second mile in order to rise scholastically and culturally. The education of rural teachers Three Year Georgia College was based on the belief that the rural school can and should contribute to the solution of many of the problems of its community. In 1940 a third year of work for students in teacher educa- tion was added in order to prepare those students for rural positions. Another great stride had been taken to give future teachers an insight into the lives of those students with whom they worked. The teachers had to know how to discover the specific needs of the community and they had to be conscious of the relation of the school com- munity to the regional and national scenes. Looking back, I recall that there ttrst Era Jja j been a decade of progress of Progress beginning in 1 9 3 5 . By that year the faculty had grown to 1 5 . Through those first ten years of growth, I saw numerous advancements take place. The growing enrollment demanded new buildings. In 1936 Mandeville Hall for girls was erected just beyond Adamson. This hall, with the establishment of Sanford Library in 1937, at the extreme west end of the front campus, extended College Circle to form a complete semi-circle of buildings. These newly erected buildings stand where once stood a large red barn. The year of 1938 saw the completion of the present auditorium- gymnasium-dining-hall building, located behind Melson and the Administration Building. Old Ay- cock Hall which once stood at the present site of the Science Building, was at different times used as dining hall, clasrooms, the little store, and boys ' s dormitory. This building was destroyed by fire in 1940. By this time, the library had become inade- quate for the needs of the school and was remod- eled and a reading room was annexed in 1940. The placement of Miss Downs as Registrar in 1941 marked another peak in the progress of the first era. She had been a member of the teaching staff since 1934. Men and women will forever remember her for her helpfulness and hospitality to new students, for her friendliness and cooperation with old stu- dents and for her interests in their varied activities. Again I was tremendously Second Era pleased to see another era of oj rogr progress begin. Through the next decade many competent members were added to the West Georgia faculty. To begin this turn over in staff, Miss Marion Crider came in 1945 to the mathematics department. Following her were Mr. C. K. Boroughs (1946) in social science and English, Miss Dora Peete (1946) in the business education department. The year 1948 brought a man who has endeared himself to all West Georgia students, Dr. William H. Row, the present dean of the school. Dean Row came here in the speech and dramtics department. Mr. J. Carson Pritchard began his work in the adult education department in 1949. Sand Hill laboratory school was given a new principal, Mr. Quinton Prince, in 1951. To continue this influx of new professors, in 195 3 came Mr. CoUus John- son, associate director of adult education. Miss Dorothy McNabb, women ' s physical education, Mr. Floyd Wirsing, science department, Mr. James Overton, business administration, and Mr. William Sessions, English. At the beginning of the winter quarter in 19 51, West Georgia ' s men happily abandoned the bar- racks on the hill and occupied modern new Aycock Hall, a building dedicated to a man who helped found West Georgia College, Mr. J. A. Aycock. i In 195 3 the work was begun on the present Science Building, located dire ctly behind the Ad- ministration Building. This was completed in 1954 and houses the book store and a modern student lounge on the lower floor. Mrs. Daisy Green moved in next door as dietitian in the same year. Mr. Harold Steele came in 195 5 to the biology department. Mr. William Lewis came to give aid to elementary education majors in psychology. So ended a second era of progress. The glory of the pring of 195 5 West Georgia ' s darkened by the death of Saddest Day one of West Georgia ' s most loved contributors to the history and growth of the school, Mrs. Irvine S. Ingram, better known as Martha Munro Ingram. She had served as acting principal of the old A. and M. School on two occasions. She was reputed for her continuous de- votion to her position as wife of the president, for her creative vision as one of the founders of West Georgia College, and, above all, for her reverent dedication to the inspiring standards of beauty, grace, and truth. Again I saw steps taken toward Third Era third era of progress in 1 S which the college is now in- volved. Mr. Owen Moore and Miss Helen Womack were added to the faculty in 1954. Dr. Ingram, in 195 6, announced that West Georgia College would become a four year degree-granting institution in the field of elementary education the following year. In that same year were added to the staff Miss Elizabeth Parker, social science and Assistant Regis- trar; Mr. William Maples, science; Miss Willie Maude Thompson, English and Dean of Women; and Mr. Robert Jobson, art. Mr. J. E. McWhorter replaced Mr. Horace Acklen as Comptroller, En- rollment had reached five hunderd and continued to increase. Additional faculty members came in 1957. They were Dr. John M. Martin, Chairman of Division of Social Science ; Dr. J. C. Hendricks, Head of Mathe- matics and Science; and Dr. George W. Walker, Chairman of the Division of Language, Literature, and the Arts. Miss Elizabeth McClellan was appointed as col- lege nurse and Mrs. Margaret King as college hostess. Other additions included Mr. Hugh Deen, Music ; and Mr. Ross Shackelford as Director of Public Relations. Dr. Mildred English came again as consultant to Adult Education Department in the same year completed her book on our adult education depart- ment, " College in the Country. " We were all grieved by the death of Dr. English in February this year. This year our faculty additions included Mr. Richard E. Ottinger, athletics and physical educa- tion; Mr. Emory Holland, Dean of Men; Mr. Glenn Moore, social science; Mr. Sterling Crim, mathe- matics; and Dr. William Stosberg, Chairman of the Division of Education. Only Dr. Ingram and Miss Weaver remain from the original faculty group of 1933. First Four Year Graduation I shall always remember the first class that graduated from West Georgia College as a four year school. These 41 students who had sought the B.S. degree in elementary education, selected as its motto one which denotes the sincerity with which students are preparing to meet the opportunities of tomor- row: " A Good Today Makes A Better Tomorrow. " I have faith enough in the school ' s future classes to believe that they will take up the cross of prog- ress and bear it to even higher realms of education. I have led you through a history Continual Growth f (. - (. jj g history never stands still. An increase in enrollment in 1957 demanded the launching of a building program. By 1958, con- struction had begun on a new classroom-oflSce building, and annexations to Mandeville Hall for Women and to Sanford Library. Early in 1959, a contract was let for the construction of a new warehouse. It will be located just to the west of the Log Cabin on the back campus. Fall quarter of 1958 had a record enrollment of seven hundred and ten. With the completion of the four building projects, West Georgia will have facilities for one thousand students. Because of the record enrollment, many men students have lived this year in the Log Cabin, the Gunn House, Hamm Hall, Rogers Hall, Aycock Hall, and in various apartments and homes in Car- rollton. With the completion of the annex to Man- deville for Women, the men will again occupy Melson Hall. This brings my history to date. I have allowed you to peer into my cloud of memories that you might know that West Georgia is a young school whose potentialities are unlimited. She has ascended one stairway of progress. Tomorrow she will have reached the crest of the mountain of history, for you, my sons and daughters, will lift her there. On March 11 this year the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia granted West Georgia a new degree program. Beginning in Sep- tember the Bachelor of Arts degree with majors in English, mathematics and social science will be of- fered making West Georgia a senior college in every respect. One man ' s dream has at long last been realized.

Ask them — for they know best what Miss Katie Downs has meant to West Georgia College and the teaching profession in our state. Miss Downs has devoted a wonderful lifetime to the teaching profession — as a teacher herself, as a student- teacher supervisor, and finally as registrar here at West Georgia. Educators will tell you she has done as much as anyone to raise the standards of teaching in Georgia. It was in 1934 that Miss Downs came to West Georgia, just one year after the beginning of the school. In the nearly 2 5 years since, she has been a guiding influence — not only for future teachers, but for all students who have come to know, love and respect her. Miss Downs ' accomplishments in the field of education would fill several volumes this size. Unfortunately we can only delve briefly here into her career. Miss Downs is a native of Oconee County and re- ceived her public schooling there. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Peabody College and a Master of Arts degree from the University of Georgia. She has done additional work at Columbia University and Ohio Slate University. She taught elementary school in Watkinsville for nine years and at the University of Georgia ' s demonstration school for twelve years before coming to West Georgia. This is Miss Downs ' final year as registrar and director of admissions at West Georgia. Future students will miss that relationship with one who knows so well how to counsel and guide young men and women. In appreciation for what she has meant and will con- tinue to mean to West Georgia College students, we, the staff take great pride in dedicating this, the 1959 Chief- tain, to Miss Katie Downs. i PROLOGUE West Georgia College ' s campus is a vivid contrast of the old and new — old landmarks linked with new ones, the memories of a thousand yesterdays shaking hands with the realities of today and the dreams of tomorrow, a happy union of past, present and future . . . The old is exemplified by the Ad- ministration Building standing staunchly for 50 years. The blast of a bulldozer, the sound of con- crete, stucco, and fiberglass being welded together, and the sight of new skeletons introduce the " New Look " : a symbol of progress for the future. Our campus sparkles in the moonlight . . . shines bril- liantly in the bright sunlight . . . and sometimes gleams with the beauty of a fresh snowfall . . . lights twinkle from the buildings at night . . . and from the oversized Yule tree during the Christmas season . . . The new student or vistor is impressed with his first sight . . . the neatness of the campus . . . the buildings always im- maculate . . . the grounds well-kept . . . the compact usefulness of a campvis designed for activity.

Only those upperclassmen who met the qualifications of leadership, scholarship, participation in campus activi- ties, citizenship and service to the school, and promise of future usefulness were considered. Students and faculty members shared the difficult task of selecting the eight students who represent us on a national level.

As Homecoming week-end ap- proached everyone could sense a tense and exciting feeling in the air. All of the dorms were busy decorating for the big day and preparing for their guests. Finally Friday arrived and with it began the arrival of West Georgia Alumni. As they entered the campus they were greeted by one of the most outstanding of the homecoming decorations, the giant Indian in front of Gunn House. Friday was certainly a happy day for everyone, as old room- mates and friends were reunited to reminisce past experiences. Homecoming officially began Saturday after- noon with the giant parade. The parade was led by the West Georgia Band and Drill Team. Following them were the high school bands from Carrollton, Newnan, Tallapoosa, and Bremen. Next came the beautiful Homecoming Court and decorated cars sponsored by the various organizations of the cam- pus. The parade traveled through Carrollton and climaxed at the Carrollton football stadium. During the half each band presented an out- standing half-time show. After this the Home- coming Court was introduced. Miss Betty Roberts, crowned by Dr. Ingram, reigned as Homecoming Queen. The rest of Betty ' s court included Misses Dottie Sullivan, runner-up, Carol Clem, Joan Dempsey, Jane Peeples, Phyllis Lewis, and Irene Brock. Saturday night the beautiful girls with their handsome dates danced in West Georgia ' s gym under a canopy of blue with sparkling silver stars to music of the Auburn Knights . But all too soon the magic hour of twelve arrived and each Prince Charming escorted his Cinderella home, ending a perfect Homecoming. f ' Jag The face of Home- coming Queen Betty Roberts reflects the emo- tion of an exciting game. First there ' s the kick-off. The ball is well received and she voices her sup- port as the team returns the ball. She is pleased with the yardage gained on the play. The Homecoming Dance was reigned over by Queen Betty Roberts and her court which includes from left to right: Dottie Sullivan, Phyllis Lewis, Carole Clem, Jane Peeples, Irene Brock, and Joan Dempsey. FRESHMEN ENJOY One of the main events of the fall quarter here on West Georgia campus is the initia- tion of freshman, better known as " Rat Week " . This initiation takes place around the last of fall quarter and is climaxed by the annual march through Sunset Hills and then returning to the West Georgia audi- torium. The " rats, " portraying comic strip characters, are quite colorful and amusing as they make their long march led by a police escort, with upperclassmen who represent the judge and jury. There is a penalty for any " lowly rat " who fails to carry out his work assignments or shows disrespect to the authority of his superiors. At complete mercy of this court, the disobedient rats are tried in front of a crowd which gathers to watch the proceedings. A special assembly program featuring rats and upperclassmen was staged with a theme of " To Hula or Not to Hula In the Schoola " filled with " dirty rats " to get the week ' s activities underway. Upperclassmen supervisors were assigned to the rats along with work and dress assignments. The jobs included clean- ing windows, tennis courts, leaf raking, washing school busses, and other campus chores. Rat Week at West Georgia College, as well as being loaded with fun by all, is a beneficial activity and an event that will be remembered by all students. (1) The rats are paraded into the auditorium after their march around town to meet their fate before the cruel Rat Court. (2) A triple " shot gun wedding " is performed for six especially lowly rats. (3) After fair warnings and proper justice have been rendered to de- faultant rats, the remainder are allowed to become accepted stu- dents of W. G. C. by " de-tailing " themselves. After pronouncing him dead, the local morticians, assisted by upperclassmen remove the carcass of rat Phillips from the auditorium. Dr. Barker makes on examination of the rat to assure the court and all upperclassmen that said rat will no longer be a menace to W.G.C. Campus. An example to all rats is made of Randy Phillips who deliberately disobeyed in- structions for Rat Week. Here he is being brought before the judge by the local police to face the judge and his charges. Randy hears the charges against him by Judge Char, lie Roberts. The jury, after hearing his case, renders its verdict of guilty (as usual) and the judge passes sentence. The local authorities place Randy before the firing squad as his sentence de- manded. The firing squad under the command of Jim Scott fires upon the lowly rat and then steps back to survey the victim. The Sweetheart Court included: Nellie Castleman, Robert Mitchell, Nona Wood, Wesley Blalock, Vi Ham, Arthur Dee Moore, Nancy Wilder, and Leonard Cabe. COLBERT AND PEEPLES CROWNED KING AND QUEEN OF SWEETHEARTS Jane Peeples and Luke Colbert were crowned King and Queen of Hearts by Dr. George Walker, Chairman of Division of Language Literature and the Arts. DOTTIE SULLIVAN OF CARROLLTON NAMED MAY QUEEN Joan Dempsey (right) was the Maid of Honor to May Queen Dottie SuNivan. The May Court included: Linda Bonner, Irene Brock, Nellie Castleman, Carol Clem, Carol Cox, Patsey Hand, Peggy Jackson, Joyce Pike, Phyllis Lewis, Betty Roberts, Teddi Robinson, Joyce Seigler, Judy Sims, Joan Dempsey, Maid of Honor, and Dottie Sullivan, May Queen.

DRAMA DEPARTMENT HAS RECORD YEAR THEATRE PROVIDES VARIED OFFERINGS Our theater shall endeavor always to develop its students as individuals — vocally, physically, emo- tionally and culturally — rather than for the pro- fessional field; to train both audience and students to appreciate the living t heater; to present plays that picture all phases of life and dramatic litera- ture; to approach perfection in its own realm without attempting to imitate Broadway; to en- tertain but to contribute something more than mere entertainment; to encourage creative work in every phase of the dramatic arts; to add stature to the theater in general, and to the college theater in general, and to the college theater in particular; and to be educational, challenging, and artistic! Three student directed one act plays were presented during winter quarter. " Berkeley Square " was the spring quarter production. BO DECKER (Jim Lindsey), the boisterous cowboy takes his sweetheart Cherri (Irene Brock), off by brute force to be his bride. GRACE (Ruth Alter), admires the peace loving sheriff (David Bynum). The arrival of Cherri, who sits next to him at the counter, makes his job difficult for a while. 44 BO DECKER is overcome by anger and takes a poke at the sheriff but misses. A rousing fight follows. THE LEADS IN BUS STOP were played by Irene Brock as Cherri, the night club singer, and Jim Lindsey as Bo Decker, the innocent, but domineering cowboy. ■ i BUS DRIVER CARL, (Van Redmond) goes in for the kill with Cafe owner Grace, (Ruth Alter) in a scene from the fall pro- duction of Bus Stop. PHILOSOPHIZING was the characteristic of the drunken old man. Dr. Lyman, (David Clark). Elmo (Faye Wright) befriends him and makes a lasting impression upon him. THE DEATH SCENE from the spring production of Romeo and Juliet was one of the most magnificient yet produced by the West Georgia Players. Betty Nichols and Cary Bynum portrayed the parts of Juliet and Romeo beneath massive towering columns and arches. 46 SIDE KICK VIRGE (Emil Sutton) plays the guitar for Cherrie to do her night club act, which she performs while snowed in at the Crossroads Cafe during a blizzard.

First, the Arts and Crafts division which deals with ceramics, weaving, paper mache and fabric printing. The second is the Pubhc School Art division which gives the rudi- ments of art principles and how to teach it to children. It also includes the actual experience of making objects. This is a semi-lab course which gives a cultural approach to art, with the studying of various ages of art and comparing them with the art of the present. This is primarily a lecture course. CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM is always helpful and leads to a better product. A PORTION of the ceramics class works on their models using miniature potter ' s wheels for ease in handling. 49 THE CHAPEL CHOIR sings for student assemblies and vespers. THE STRINGS lend unexcelled beauty to the majestic oratorio of Handel THE BASS VIOLINS accompanied 180 voices in the " Messiah, " the largest group ever to sing in this annual event. THE STRING ENSEMBLE from Columbus, Georgia, provided the instru- mental accompaniment for the " Messiah " at Christmas. 50 MUSIC DEPARTMENT EXPANDS ACTIVITIES PROMINENT GUEST SOLOISTS APPEAR IN CAMPUS PROGRAMS Our holiday season was highlighted by the moving presentation of " The Messiah, " Handel ' s most successful and best known oratorio. The choruses of " The Messiah " are monumental in their character and call for crystalline precision of execution. The solos call for great agility and in many instances, profound feeling and interpretation. The one-hundred -eighty voice chorus for this perforinance was composed of singer s from Carrollton, Bremen, Villa Rica, Bowdon, Douglasville, and Newnan. Our local church choirs were well represented and the West Georgia College Choir in full attendance is representative of the entire state. Attendance in the form of a record crowd filled the college auditorium and overflowed. The Colum- bus Chamber Orchestra accompanied the chorus, with the eminent Mr. George Johnson as director. Prominent artists who appeared at West Georgia this year under the sponsorship of the music department in- clude soprano Beverly Woolf, violinist Nina Geverts and pianist Louise Harwell.

The thrills, loves and emotions of students cannot be written on the page of a yearbook. Their hopes and dreams cannot be photographed. On the pages of the 1959 Chieftain will be found the highlights of the 195 8-59 school year as seen through the eyes of the camera and as told by you who helped make this yearbook a reality. The staff hopes you like what you see here. A second place award among senior colleges in the Columbia Scholastic Press Association yearbook competition was an honor claimed by the 1958 Chieftain. The first Chieftain Beauty Revue was the major project of the 1959 Chieftain and improvements in all departments of the book can be easily noted. The 1959 Chieftain is a tribute to all who worked so diligently to make it something of which every student at West Georgia can be proud. 56 NANCY MURRAH - business Manager Pictured above are court members of the first " Miss Chieftain " Beauty Revue.

The purpose of the choir is to provide satisfying experiences for those with interest and talent in music and to supply appropriate music for various needs on the campus and in the surrounding com- munity. Three concerts are presented each year, and in addition trips are made to high schools, churches, and civic groups. The " Messiah " was a featured program of the Christmas season presented in asso- ciation with local churches and surrounding com- munities. A small select performing group chosen from the college choir is known as the Concert Choir. It performs frequently at chapel and for civic func- tions upon request. West Georgia College Choir participates in the presentation of the " Messiah. " n SPORTS Halfback Bill Davis picks up first down against the tough Middle Georgia Wolverines in the Homecoming Game. Quarterback Sandy Daniel pitches out to halfback Bill Davis for a short gain in the season ' s finale with Georgia Military College. BRAVES TAKE GRIDIRON UNDER NEW COACM The story of the ' 5 8 edition of the West Georgia Braves is not a story of great triumphs on the score- board. It is the story of a group of young men who gave their very best while representing their Alma Mater on the gridiron. On many Saturdays this team found themselves outclassed but not out- fought. This was the Braves ' first year under Coach Dick Ottinger, and their improvement under his coach- ing could be noted each time they took the field. The failure of this team to achieve great success can, in no way, be attributed to the players or their coach. This team did show a deep desire to uphold the honor of their college each time they faced an opponent. This can be done in many ways other than the victory column. The fact that they suc- ceeded in this can be seen in the way the student body rallied behind this team. Many fine players donned the colors of West Georgia during this season and nothing but success can be predicted for the Braves in future years. W.G.C. OPP.

These came in the loss of large groups of players at key times during the season. Much credit must be given to the boys that finished the season for the Braves. The keen desire of these boys could be easily seen toward the end of their season. This was very evident in the inspired game they played against the Oglethorpe Petrels. West Georgia College is proud of these boys that gave so greatly of their time and energy when the overwhelming odds would have turned lesser men back.

DIAMOND TEAM THRILLS FANS Each year when spring rolls around West Georgia College can be depended upon to field a good baseball team. They never fail to be a strong contender; and, in addition they are often victorious over teams out of their conference. The diamond squad is a great favorite with the towns people and W. G.

Each tribe is awarded a certain number of points for winning and for participating in the various athletic events. These events include basket- ball, tennis, badminton, archery, hiking, soccer, softball, golf, tumbling, and volleyball. Under the leadership of their chieftains each tribe strives to out score the other, and the tribe that accomplishes this is the champion. In addition to tribal honors, each girl may win indi- vidual honors. There is much spirited competition among the girls as they vie for the various honors. 77 " H 1 nil Le Cerc e Francois members are — Mr. Owen Moore, Sponsor, Robert Edwards, Sylvia Kelley, Terry Bailey, Suzanne Setser, Robert Paschal, Joe Hutcheson, Jane Busby, Maudine Abernathy, Jack Baskin, Gainya Proctor, Janice Teal, Larry Walker, and Al Christensen. LE CERCLE FRANCAIS EL CIRCULO ESPANOL Le Cercle Francais is composed of students interested in French life and culture. Usually the members are taking college courses in French. The purpose of this club is to help students become better acquainted with the language and customs of France. Programs are held once each month, and they include programs of French art and music, and guest speakers. Many times French-speaking visitors are invited to present programs to the students. Each spring quarter the French Club sponsors a picnic to Ida Cason Gardens. El Circulo Espanol is open to any student interested in the Spanish language and in Spain and Latin America. The purpose of the club is to stimulate interest in the Spanish language and in the cultures of the people of Spain and of South and Central America. El Circulo Espanol ' s programs include programs de- voted to Spanish music and art, and guest speakers. As often as possible, Spanish-speaking visitors are invited to present programs.

Quite an impressive group they turned out to be under the leadership of our ever spec- tacular majorettes. These attractive units have become the feature of W.G.C. ' s band performances. Always right there ready to do their part and more in furnishing that old school spirit, the cheerleaders have been most faithful during both t he football and basket- ball seasons. They have worn the red and blue of West Georgia with distinction as they have followed the teams, encouraging them to carry the fight of W.G.C. to the gridirons and courts of many schools.

It has been a record year of achievement in every respect. The enrollment climaxed previous years; additions to the faculty strengthened the quality and character of the institution; and the erection of four new building units made adequate classrooms and dormitories. The CHIEFTAIN of last year, a first in its beauty and the first for us as a senior college, was a prophetic indication of what this second year was to be. While the faculty and students at that time did not know that our needs would be supplied, we now realize in this second edition that the year, 1958-1959, will be a banner year in material prosperity; however, we want particularly to think that it will be so intellectually and spiritually. It seems according to keener observers than your president that the announcements made by public offi- cials indicate some tragic years ahead. It has been my experience that youth under proper guidance always meet the new challenges of a new day. It is the earnest wish of your president and faculty that the environment at West Georgia College will be of such a character as to stimulate and bring out the best in every student. Let us hope the scholastic standards, the cultural surround- ings, and the ethical standards will be of such high order that all of us in this school family may move out con- fidently in the days ahead. Consequently, we note the editor and his staff have made every effort to reflect in this volume something of these hopes. This issue of the CHIEFTAIN is making history. Long in the distant future you will turn its faded pages and find pleasant memories as you view the pictures and descriptions of your friends and associates so well re- corded here. All of us will treasure this edition the remainder of our lives. With best wishes for your continued success and usefulness. Cordially, Irvine S. Ingram President DR. WILLIAM H.

Ruth, you need two more pictures here and those cutMnes don ' t fit! The time: The wee hours of the morning. . . . The place: Those big rooms in the upper regions of the Admin- istration Building. Such was the conversation on numerous occasions. Time pro- gressed. Many harsh words were said. A whip was cracked. Aca- demic responsibilities sometimes went neglected. Lights burned until all hours of the morning with awareness of approaching deadlines. One name appears as editor but it would be a gross misrepre- sentation to exclude the names of others whose combined efforts produced this twenty-fifth volume. In retrospect, we may recall the atmosphere of befuddlement which prevailed at the beginning when staffers joined forces, some for the first time, in this co-operative venture. The Business Manager found the ledgers and journals difficult to manipulate; the Sports Editor was confronted by a burning headache, of athletic character; the Managing Editor was faced with the chore of assisting an overly enthused editor make the first Beauty Revue a success. The Class Editors were faced with the responsibility of meeting, at least verbally and pictorially, a few hundred freshmen, sopho- mores, juniors, and seniors. The Organizations and Activities Editors lost themselves in a maze of pictures, appointments, schedules, and posters. Nancy Murrah learned how to deal with the troublesome ledgers and journals, and even managed to make ends meet. Andy Byrd invented a remedy for headaches when he came in with copy the day we went to press. Ty Cochran became well ac- quainted with the ways of a right-hand man. Mary Ann Murphy, Gene Blalock, Carol Clem, Beth Bailey, and Emily Davis went to bed to rest after their ordeal. Jane Schell and Sylvia Kelley found their way out of the maze of pictures — a job well done. It ' s all over now. The anxiety, the fears, the frustrations, that tired feeling — they ' ve all disappeared into the timeless void of the past. And with what have they been replaced? The hundreds of layouts, the " thousands " of pictures, the bushels of copy have all been transformed into what is now the 1959 Chieftain. The preceding pages told a story — your story — the story of West Georgia College, 1959. You had a part in writing that story, and the Chieftain staff sincerely hopes that you are proud of it. The staff assembled pictorial and editorial material to tell this story in producing the largest edition of the Chieftain ever pub- lished. The size of this book measures only a small fragment of the vast score of various college activities and events which were a part of your year at West Georgia. There are many others, others than I have mentioned here, whose help has been invaluable. Some were not " officially " mem- bers of the Chieftain staff. Their help has not gone unnoticed. Their names are too numerous to list here on this one page, but a hearty thanks goes out to all. If not for them, the plans and the dreams for 1959 would not have been realized. This year is over and the pages have been bound together in a cover of grey and white. The book now lays before you. All that remains from the toils of many varied personalities are these 160 pages of pictures, words, and memories. To those who now view our accomplishment, we hope that you will enjoy it. To those who will comprise the staff of the 1960 Chieftain, the complaints, the praise, or whatever else may be said, will be yours for your consideration as new plans are started and dreams for another year envisioned. Words cannot express to you, the students, the faculty, our presi- dent, and friends, my humility in editing for the second consecutive year, your yearbook, the Chieftain. I hope it can mean in some small way as much to you as it does to me. 3x 15 1 laiiAi SPECIAL COUiCTiBN IRVIME SULLIVAN INGRAM L1BRAR WEST GEORGIA COLLEGE CARROLLTON. GEORGIA
