Flashes of color, a snatch of song. And the long stretch of time Playing out like a childhood rhyme: Monday ' s child, Wednesday ' s woe The span of the week, The arc of the door. The measure by which you trace Your moods, your graces. What you are, what you know. m-. ■:; ' C.

And hands. And bodies. There are fair faces for the guys . . . and fair faces for the girls. There are a lot of not-so-fair faces too. But maybe these are the best of all. They have character. ■ I Even the week seems to put on a fair face on Mondays. Everything is new and fresh; maybe the sun shines a little brighter. i Tuesdays Child Is Full of Grace: Just like fair faces, there are a lot of graces. Not all of us have the bodily grace of a dancer or an acrobat. Some of us have academic grace, or social grace, or good old down-to-earth human grace. Maybe even Amazing Grace. 11 Wednesdays Child Is Full of Woe: Whether you look at life through the cloudy eyes of a pessimist or the rose-tinted glasses of an optimist, there ' s a lot of woe to be found between Monday morning and Friday afternoon. Many of these hard times seem to center on Wednesday. Monday and Tuesday have taken their toll and the weekend seems a thousand miles away. 13 W always concerts or • " baoVies, but what ' s the point when you ' ve gotThursday and Friday dashes staring yoii in the face? I I ' 2 . : i «- . - Thursdays Child Has Far To Go: Atlanta. New York. Even Bremen or Villa Rica. There are a lot of places to go to besides Carrollton. Some hitch-hike; some go in cars, or ride bicycles, or take various bizarre forms of transportation. Everyone seems to be going somewhere. 17 But how far can you go? As in a bad Italian movie plot, you can never really escape from yourself. Even a trip to the moon can ' t free you from what you are. The playwright once said that time is the greatest distance between two places. It ' s also the only one-way trip in the world. , The future looms big now. The danger lies in sweeping past your destination. hk tsAl ■Ga j J,: l?:g i?y 18 19 ■■TH waiWiW»Mm-W i« a " ™w«ai»ffM wmnnw» a Fridays Child Is Loving and Giving: Charity. Sharing. Giving and taking. The flexing of body and mind and will. Poets praise it, psychologists define it. Some people run away from it, but all of us live in the circle of its influence. 21 imtimtaaaiBBSm Saturdays Child Works Hard for a Living: Some people here seem to work hard . . . drive maintenance trucks, type, put together yearbooks, cook hamburgers at Hardee ' s, or do anything else to get a little beer money. But students here don ' t work for money only. Some work for grades, for charity, or for recognition. A few even seem to work hard at goofing off. 25 And the Child That Is Born on the Sabbath Day Is Bonny and Blithe and Goodr and Gay. 27 Bn anBB»BinPMig«i On Sunday we ' re inclined to be reverential, good — or bonny, blithe, and gay. For whatever the purpose, on Sunday, like no other day, there ' s a stillness in the air that helps prepare for Monday ' s onslaught. 29 mETMBna I Time . . . Flowing down soft. Wending its way through the weary years Like an old fat river. Sifting down through a T-maze Of old hopes and dusty dreams And half-forgotten smiles. Flow-running through time. Gaining a little as you go. Grabbing for all the gusto you can. 31 1 i P»4 1 m v r sAJi ' P-. ' ' Be -- p:- -- R - ' " ? ' ??

The fact that WGC rarely loses a game on their home hardwood should be adequate proof that the cheerleaders are well-trained in their duty of; getting the students behind the ball team one-; hundred percent. Several times during the sea-i son the fans ' support has helped the team to come from behind in the waning moments to; edge out their opponent in a particularly tight game. above: Those faces tell the whole story. top Front Janet Sidey, Captain Second Row: (left to ngtit) Mike Brown, Gerry Katz, Mel Paris, Mike Whorton, Billy O ' Dell Third Row: (left to right) Glenda Harden, Sue Vernon, Denise Glanton (Captain), Debbie Parkerson, Shela Rossers 108 Help the Braves Through Close Games 109 110 " Basketball Jones, Basketball Jones " — Cheech Marin and Thomas Chong. Once again at West Georgia College, bas- ketball reigned supreme during winter quarter. All of the students ' activities in one way or another were related to basketball. Studying was performed at such strange times as 2:00 a.m. or 3:30 p.m. or disregarded completely. On nights of a scheduled basketball game, Curt ' s and all of the other Carroll County beer stores did a booming business. A few of the more dedicated even hoarded their spare change in an effort to obtain gasoline, in the face of a fuel crisis, to attend out-of-town games. This rabid student support has gained the college field house a reputation around the state as a terrifying place for opposing coaches and players. " Way to go. Foots! " " Come on, Ref, get off your backside and call one right! " " Awright; good shooting, Tom! " " Defense, Braves, Defense! " These are only a few of the cries that can be heard, either separately or simulta- neously, at West Georgia games. The Braves basketball fan is a strange creature, indeed. Invariably dressed in sneakers, blue jeans, and a Disneyland tee shirt, he sits in the east stands of the gym for two hours in a drunken stupor, proclaiming the Braves an equal match with any basketball team created by God, man, or John Wooden. When the game ends, unless he is restrained, he will run out onto the court, madly screaming. There is, of course, no par- ticular reason for doing this. It is just the thing to do. But above all a West Georgia fan stays with the team and has helped pull the Braves team through a lot of close home games. This year the Braves only lost four games — all four of these were on the road — and three were lost by five points or less. Columbus Col- lege thrashed the Braves in Muskogee County, but on the return bout our team stomped the Cougars into mud 1 06-68 in front of a capacity home crowd. The team is composed of ten outstanding individuals. Clarence " Foots " Walker is an Ail- American ball player from the word " GO, " whether he is sinking a twenty-foot jump shot or driving to the basket. Foots more than likely has a pro career ahead of him. Another Ail- American is Tom " Terrific " Turner, who toward the middle of the season became the most pro- lific scorer in West Georgia history, smashing the mark previously held by the great center Charlie Hamilton. " Jumpin ' " Jerry Faulkner is probably the only 5 ' 11 " center in college bas- ketball. His jumping ability is indeed demon- strated by the fact that Jerry was the leading rebounder on the 1973 team. " Steady " Dave Edmonds was another fine player this year. Without being flashy, Dave was always there when some hard points or a clutch play was needed. Late-bloomer Randy Rountree came on as a fine starting center during the season. His back-up, Pat Magley, also saw plenty of action. This year the Braves captured the first South Atlantic Crown ever, in a tournament held at the West Georgia Field House. The Braves took the tournament crown without too much trou- ble; however, their stiffest competition c ame from Valdosta State and Armstrong State Col- lege. Braves Capture I National Title Expectations for the Braves this year were set high and for the most part, fulfilled. This year the Braves ravaged arch-rival LaGrange three tinnes. However, once again, the Braves failed to defeat Valdosta State in the south Georgia city — a feat which has never been performed by West Georgia teams. The team advanced to the national NAIA tourney by virtue of their first-place finish in the NAIA 25th District. The nationals were held in Kansas City, where thirty-two teams competed for top honors. The tournament games were played every day for a full week. West Georgia was given little hope for winning until they defeated heavily favored Gardner-Webb. The Saturday night finale pitted West Geor- gia against Alcorn A. M. in a wild champion- ship affair won by our Braves. As a special honor to go with the national title, Clarence " Foots " Walker was named the tournament ' s Most Valuable Player. This was the first time ever a team from the great state of Georgia captured a national basketball title. The Braves are under the fine coaching of Roger Kaiser, former Georgia Tech Ail-Ameri- can, and Jerry Reynolds, who has one of the best minds for basketball in the state. It is these two men who master-mind the great teams consistently trotted out by the school. In addi- tion to coaching basketball. Coach Kaiser is athletic director for the school. One of the newer buildings on campus, the West Georgia College Health and Physical Education Building is the headquarters for intercollegiate and intramural sports. Through this maze of band-aids, resin, and sweaty ten- nis shoes, many fine athletes, men and women, have come forth to represent the school in athletic competition. Inside these hal- lowed portals, the basketball and volleyball teams play their matches, while the fans cheer their teams and jeer their rivals. But there are other things in this building, mainly the offices of Coaches Bill Webb and Archie White. Coach Webb ' s cross-country team won the first South Atlantic trophy awarded, and each year Coach White fields a baseball team any school could be very proud of. Because of the vast budget allocated basketball, these teams operate on, at times, somewhat limited funds. This is not to mention the lower allocation received by golf, tennis, or women ' s sports. And how about the Soccer Club which represented the school, but was not even recognized as an intercollegiate sport by the Athletic Department? Although the Athletic Department generally does a highly commendable job, it just might be wise to reex- amine our priorities. One element that belongs solely to basket- ball is the cheerleaders. It is the sight of these tarts in their little costumes that usually keep the drunken male fans in good spirits when the game gets slow. Even if the cheerleaders do mess up a routine, it is worth it to watch them wiggle out to the center of the court where they perform the cheers, gleefully shaking their nether regions to the delight of the fans, who applaud madly after each sporting " Rah, Rah, Rah! " But seriously, the cheerleaders are a great asset to the fans and players alike. It is their spirit, enthusiasm, and loud mouths that generate the kind of noise that the West Geor- gia fans are famous for. Ill above: The 1 973-74 West Georgia College Braves.

Not Pictured: Willie Hayes, Bob Giddens The 1 973 edition of the West Georgia Braves was one of the college ' s best baseball teams. Led by Coach Archie White, the Braves com- piled a 23 and 9 record, and placed second in the Georgia Intercollegiate Athletic Confer- ence. The Braves fell just short of Shorter Col- lege for the crown. Our Braves placed five men on the All-Con- ference Team. They were catcher Phil Wil- liams, centerfielder Tim Dedmon, rightfielder Steve Traylor, pitcher Ricky Camp, and second baseman Rick Payne. In addition, Payne also received West Georgia ' s Scholastic Athlete Award for his 3.7 grade-point average. In the District 25 NAIA Tournament the Braves were without the services of leading hit- ters Dedmon and Traylor who collided in the Braves final conference game. However, the Braves had Valdosta State 2-1 for seven innings before finally dumping the game by leaving as many as eight men on base. The 1 974 edition of the Braves features many returning starters and a fine pitching staff. This team promises to be one of the finest ever fielded at West Georgia College. 118 Runners-Up in GIAC 119 left: Catcher Jim Landl fields a pop fly. below right: Richard Wood — outfielder below right: Jim Johnson — shortstop bottom: Steve Traylor, one of Braves ' leading hitters. 1 973 West Georgia Home Baseball Games March 17 Tennessee Temple March 18 Ohio University March 29 No. Cen.

The sport is not funded by the school as are the school ' s major sports. The activity came about through the efforts of the West Georgia Soccer Club, The general manager of the club for fall quarter, 1973, was Dr. Dave Dugan, and the team was under the field direction of Coach Ed Lambert, When proposals to go ahead with the project were realized, Dr, Dugan hastily arranged a six-game schedule in which the team partici- pated. With more adequate planning and prac- tice next year, the team should be much improved. Hopefully, it will receive more sanc- tion from the school ' s athletic department. WGC Takes GIAC Crown Front Row: (I to r) Joey Phelan, Sam Stovall, Bill Kallenberg, Jeff Campbell, Jack Phipps, Kim Vining Back Row: (I to r) Dr. Tom Leaming, Steven Holmes, Larry Schnall, Harold Morris, Steve Smith, Peter Smith, Larry Masters Under the able direction of Coach Tom Leaming, the 1973 West Georgia tennis team captured the Georgia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference title for the third consecutive year. The WGC men met their toughest competition in the GIAC tournament from the Shorter Col- lege Hawks. The Braves captured seven of the nine matches in the tournament, with Shorter taking the remaining two. After winning the Conference title, the West Georgia netters advanced to the District Twenty-Five Playoffs of the National Associa- tion of Intercollegiate Athletics. The winner of this tournament advanced to the national com- petition in Kansas City. The Braves were edged in this tournament, placing second. Joey Phe- lan and Sam Stovall were selected as Most Val- uable Players for the year. The West Georgia Tennis Team will be much improved in the 1974 season with many of last year ' s starters returning and the addition of several talented freshmen. With this squad the Braves should have a fine chance for a trip to Kansas City.

Nine individuals that participated in the NAIA out- door track and field competition will compose the nucleus of this fine team. They are led by Larry Turner in the 440 yard dash, Jessie Fields in the triple jump, and Joe LaBoone who finished fourth in the NAIA national tournament in the pole-vault, with a jump of 15 feet 2 inches. Gary Smith is the co-record holder in the 60 yard high hurdles with a time of 7.4 seconds for the school. He was joined this year in indoor and outdoor competition by Doug Miller. In addition to Turner, West Georgia had two strong quarter-milers in the sprints, Randy Houston and Wesley Brown, who also com- pose half of the mile relay team, which is sure to be a national contender. Brown is also a competitor in both the long and triple jumps. The Cross-Gountry team, which won the first South Atlantic Conference trophy in the sport, was led by Seniors David Harris and Ernie Rai- ney. right: Hurdler Gary Smith below: " Are you sure this only weighs sixteen pounds?

" v , V 1 Heroes Volley Their Way The West Georgia College women ' s volley- ball team carried the name of our school to the campus of Worster College in Worster, Ohio, for the national volleyball tournament in December, 1 973. This was the second straight year that the " Heroes " were participants in the national competition. They achieved this honor by placing second in the Southeastern Regional Tournament in November at WGC. They were defeated only by Florida State Uni- versity in the championship match. However, when tournament time rolled around, it seemed that there was not enough money in the till for the Heroes to make the trip. In order to fill the coffers, the women were forced to borrow money to cover expenses, the loan to be repayed winter quarter by the team. When a college team has a chance to represent its school in a national tournament, a sorry state of affairs has been reached when finances are insufficient for the trip. The Heroes, under the able direction of Miss Dot McNabb, placed ninth in the nation at the tournament, in which twenty-four schools par- ticipated.

On January 27, 1974, they trav- eled to the Omni in Atlanta and performed at halftime of the Atlanta Hawks basketball tilt with the New York Knickerbockers. This game was televised nationwide by the CBS television network ' s " NBA Game of the Week. " No matter how the game turns out on a bas- ketball night at WGC, one thing the crowds will be pleased with is the halftime show, as long as the Bravettes are featured. 142 WGC Pep Squad — Innovative Performers at Braves Games n The WGC Pep Squad is the newest perform- ing group on the Carrollton campus. The pep squad performs at time-outs during the Braves ' basketball games. Under able direction of Vir- ginia Render and Robbyn Mayes, the pep squad has added a new dimension to school spirit at West Georgia College. 143 WGC Golfers Really Know How to Swini The West Georgia College Golf Team, as a rule, receives little or no recognition during spring " quarter in Carrollton. They should, how- ever, for the Braves ' linksmen continue to rep- resent the college in fine fashion at Sunset Hills Country Club and other courses around the state. Last year the golf team lost only three matches during the regular season, each match by a mere one or two strokes. At the Georgia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Tournament, the Braves led the field until the final nine holes of competition. They hung in there, however, and finished second in the conference. In 1974, the West Georgia Golf Team, under the guidance of a new coach, Mr. Skip Yow, was expecting another fine season. top.

The West Georgia College Student Intramu- ral Association is the governing body of the activities that are enjoyed by several hundred students annually. The complaints lodged against the intramurals are as numerous as the students. Up until this year, one of the most fre- quent complaints was about the ineptness of the students who officiated the games. In an attempt to improve this situation, a clinic was held to be attended by all student officials. The officiating improved somewhat; however, the officials remained the scapegoats for many lost games.

In other words, people were drinking like fish, which is definitely against college regulations, when it occurs on school property. Although the practice was indeed a long-standing one, a furor was aroused not only in S.I.A. circles, but also in Mandeville Hall in the office of Charles E. Smith, Dean of Student Services. Calling a spe- cial meeting of intramural team managers. Dean Smith asked that the students work to curb the problem them- selves, rather than force college officials to take action. Although the drinking continued unabated, attention was not called to it again, perhaps unwisely.

One year was not good enough for the Chi Phi ' s to win the Blood Drive, but two years may have to hold them until next year.

Since that time, the Kappa Sigs have savored the glory of winning first place in Homecoming Float Com- petition, and being semi-finalists in football, basketball, softball, volleyball, tennis, and swimming. The members of the brotherhood are outstanding in all phases of student life at WGC, holding numerous positions in a variety of student organizations. In academics, a large number of brothers have been named to Who ' s Who. Combining their efforts into one force, the Kappa Sigs have aided in the March of Dimes, the Blood Drive and the Cancer Drive. The Kappa Sigs continue to accomplish many outstanding goals, made possible through their friendship and cooperation. 169 Lambda Chi ' s Have Great Hopes for the Future Lambda Chi Alpha began this year on a fresh note. A reorganization with the elections of all new officers brought new, exciting lead- ership to this fraternity. With Mark Crawford as President and Gene Johnson as Vice-Presi- dent, the Lambda Chi ' s have great hopes for the future. Participating in the Circle K Blood Drive, Alpha Gamma Delta Sweepstakes, Clean up Carrollton Day, and all intramural sports, the Lambda Chi ' s are seen all over campus. Lambda Chi is the sponsor for an annual Sweepstakes, sparking competition between sorority girls. Always seeking action, the Lambda Chi ' s are out to excel in all they do. 170 ' ' " .. ' ..
