T— " THIS book is not supposed to be an Annual, but is a combination of the third and fourth issues of the Technala. The editors believe that a book of this nature _ _ _ ■ will mean more to the girls than the usual publication, and will be one step to- 5§ ward the publication of a quarterly magazine and an Annual. It is with these I beliefs in mind that we have worked in order to be able to present this book to the student-body. The staff wishes to thank the student-body for its hearty cooperation, and hopes that the new staff will meet with as much cooperation next year. The Kittens THERE are some kittens on Senior Hall. They are only one week old, and their . eyes are still closed. They are weak, helpless little things. They have not even learned to " mew " yet; the only sound that they can make is the faintest little suggestion of a real noise. They have a little box for a bed, and when they are taken out of it they are lost. If they are taken out of their bed and put on the floor by themselves, they try as best they can to scramble back to the box. They strug- gle desperately, but helplessly, because they do not know what direction to take. Their bed is their goal, but they do not know the road that leads to it. Even if they were as intelligent as that, they would not be able to reach it because of their weakness. The only way that they can reach their goal is by someone ' s assistance. These kittens have reminded me of some of the girls in our school. These girls are just as weak and helpless as the kittens. They, just as the kittens, are placed out by themselves with the idea of a goal to be reached. When they enter school they have to depend upon someone else to decide upon the course of study for them to pursue. After the direction for them to take has been decided by someone else, they are still helpless be- cause they are too weak to travel their courses alone. They struggle, but without suc- cess. As a result, they write their themes and make their grades by leaning upon some- one else. Finally, their goal is reached, but are they any stronger for having made the journey? No. When their supports leave them, they are just as helpless as thev were when they first came into the school. VIRGINIA BRISTOW, ' ' 17. Wrinkles THE wrinkle business has increased enormously in our school by the extension of exams — over two weeks. There seems to be a contest between high cost of liv- ing and the wrinkle wholesale company. Indeed wrinkles are everywhere by the wholesale. When we go out to recreate, in one corner of the campus we see what we think to be a bunch of frowns. As we draw nearer we recognize it to be a friend. Not one corner of the campus is filled with such occupants, but every cor- ner. Just as there is a cause before an effect, there is a worry before a wrinkle. Pre- ventives! Curatives! are our watchwords. Will we cure or prevent wrinkles? Simply stop worry. Why not try the famous line some one has suggested, " Once over, stop over, be left over, over all. " Let us not be quite so optimistic as the man who said, " If it were not for worry, the wrinkle business would go to pieces. " The smaller the frag- ments of those, and the further apart they are placed, the more efficient will be our work. HATTIE WATSON, ' 17.

These years have been Mats! filled with disappointments and displeasures, yel no1 without re- wards for well done work and bright hopes for the future. Some of us came here five long years ago — long in one sense of the word, but very short in another ; long because of constant toil, but short because of increased interest in scholarship, classmates, and school. All of us have been thoroughly saturated with the true A. G. T. I. spirit. When one attempts to write a history of the " Blue and White, " she feels very little and unequal to the task, for there are very many things to be said. How many Freshmen were there? But what does it matter, for our tongues made the noise of ten thousand. The big event of that whole year was entertaining the " learned " Seniors. Now we experienced closer con- tact with our greatly loved " cases. " Did we lead in chapel once? Indeed, but don ' t ask us what we did. Did we play any match games? Of course, and came out with flying colors. Did we make the honor roll? Maybe we did, but I doubt it. In September 1914 though many were absent, we organized ourselves into a class of strong, loyal Sophomores. We inexperienced Sophomores were filled with a spirit that led us to disaster. " This kind of vanity is always ' hoist ' with our own petards. " We lost the Thanksgiving basket- ball game. Juniors ! How wonderful it was to really be Juniors ! We made a brave stand under our president, Helen Lazenby. Athletics continued to be in our minds, but foremost — scholarship, for weren ' t we to be the Education girls who would diligently pursue the first grade certificate? The desired effect was achieved when our play made the popular hit. The fact was brought to view that our class was not filled with logy-minded girls. Another strong proof of our ability was the step we took toward student government manifested in Junior Hall ' s first year of existence, and the success. Our dream of Seniordom has at last been realized with special privileges such as living in Senior Hall, eating together in the middle row of the dining hall, leading in chapel, etc. We now smile at the freshness of our Freshmanhood, blush at the egotism of Sophomorehood, compliment our- selves on passing the Junior uncertainties, and set our hearts on our true goal — a diploma (and a certificate). We boast of the largest Senior Class in the history of the A. G. T. I. — seventy-two strong. TECENALA 27 On Thanksgiving day we won the basket ball game over the Juniors, the score being 17-15. After contesting with the other classes we proved to be the winners of the championship. On honor-roll day we came for- ward with the largest per cent. On dramatic day we starred in the play, " Our Boys. " On recreation day we had the pleasure of beginning the movement and working for the construction of the swimming pool. We have had the peculiar pleasure of growing with our Alma Mater. During these years three new buildings have been erected besides other remarkable growths. Throughout these four years we have " worked together " in union without any breach of friendship. " So each of us shall go from here And in the coming years Shall be the pawns of destiny, Moved by our hopes and fears Only to be remembered by the Things which we have done. " Annie Gosa £ £ £ Prophecy of the Class of 1917 S " ™ - " IINCE my graduation from A. G. T. I., I have been living in Verdun _ _ with my husband, who is a famous French aviator. Frederic M l having been given a furlough, we decided to ily to America. The first place in which we landed was " Bragg " station. It seemed to be quite prosperous, and I was not surprised to learn that it grew through the influence of Katie Lee Robins and Cordelia Scott, who were now great social leaders. We proceeded to the best hotel in town, kept by May Dee Crawford and Margaret Tait. From these friends we learned that several of the United States regiments were stationed near-by. Because of our vital interest in these regiments, we went to investigate the conditions. It was late when we arrived at the first regiment. In spite of the growing darkness, we saw on the outside of the tents what we thought to be a tub of molasses candy. We immediately seized it. To our surprise a " hey " greeted us. It was only Nan Coley steadily washing dishes in the tub. Estelle Patton and Ann Murry were making good cooks for the army. After inspecting the tents we went to the hospital. Finding the hospital crowded, we inquired as to the nature of the epidemic. Just as we walked in the door Ruby Calhoun was reading, " I live on the farm, I do, " and we knew at once the cause of the crowded conditions. Being an 28 T ECU N A L A Nil lllllllllllllini!llllllllll!lllllllllllllllllllinil!lllllllllllllUlllllini!lllll!ll!ll!llllllllllllllllllllllllllllll!IIN old classmate of mine, Ruby lodged us for the night, and fed us on hard tacks. Because of the physical discomfort we left the army quite early, and flew for a short distance. In spite of the mist we spied a small group, which at first we thought to be brownies. On close observation, however, we recognized Mattie Mae Tatum with a band of trained cats, which were doing active service by carrying notes from camp to camp. Her assistant was none other than Martha Jones, who had just sacrificed a part of her foot to a dear soldier boy. Loula Williams was showing her musical talent by giving the bugle call for the cats. From these friends we learned of Leone Creel ' s success as a bacteriologist; in fact she was rivaling Louis Pasteur. Her dairy was producing one pound of butter per month, and this whole amount was sold to the catary. Miss Virginia Hendrick was an important member of the catary. She rolled pills. It made us none the happier to leave this band, but I became eager to learn the whereabouts of other classmates. Noon found us in New Orleans. On passing a newspaper stand we bought the " Up-to-date " magazine. We were attracted by the cover, which seemed to be a mixture of solid geometry figures and art. It was the production of " M. J. " Ballard. The magazine had a personal interest other than this. Julia Higgins was Editor-in-chief, " Bob " Harmon the chief short story writer ; Mabel Dudley, social corre- spondent; and Ethel York, joke editor. We followed the crowd and found ourselves in the theatre. The means of entertainment for the evening was an Egyptian dancing girl, who proved to be, on closer scrutiny, Elizabeth Cook in disguise. She was assisted by Kathleen deShazo. Who should be sitting in front of us but Mary Lyman. Her time had been occupied as an active member of a debating society in this town. From her we learned that Grace Lyman was offering her services to the A. G. T. I. as a student. Here we also learned of Virginia Bristow ' s chemical achieve- ment. This new chemical when reacting on " Tin " and " Clay, " produces a violent explosive on coming in contact with water, thus destroying many German submarines. We had in mind no definite destination. We thought that the Rocky Mountains might afford much attraction. The first great discovery made here was the " Day and Night " school, Annie Mae Day being the day teacher and Emma Knight the night teacher. At the end of the woody campus we found a branch whose broad, muddy waters had ceased to flow exuber- antly because of a clam made by Mary Frances Thomas. The use of the branch was shown by a huge sign reading, " Free Swimming Lessons given here without charge, " by Margaret Reynolds. Mattie Gilleland and Lorena Bush were acting as night watchwomen. Farther on we found a rural liiinili! :,i::i !iiiiiiiii:iii:.i: : :.:;i!!iliiiiiiiiiiin::i:i:. : i:.i:::n;i,i;iiii ;:i:i :. : i:;:iiiil;i;lilllilliiiiiilli!ii:i nun iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiininuiiiiiiiiinitiiiiiiini iiiiiiiiiiiiini TECH N A L A 29 Methodist church. Here we attended " an old-time big meeting. " The wives of the two preacher, who were doing much of the shouting, proved to be " Goat " Gosa and May Walker. We were invited to the Angel ' s Retreat for dinner. Here we found Edythe deShazo and Elizabeth Cross. Leaving the mountains we flew to the Staked Plains. Several miles from the plain the sail of our aeroplane broke. We landed in a most deso- late, god-forsaken spot. While wondering what could be next, a touring car came down the muddy road. The man at the wheel offered his assist- ance. Nothing could have been more restful than the back seat of that car. The lady on the front proved to be an incessant talker. After forty minutes ' constant talk, I asked the man to stop the car and let us out that we might escape that woman ' s almighty tongue. The woman clambered down to open the door. Who should it be but " Jess Pott? " Knowing that her nature was such that she could not help talking, I let her ramble on. In her ramblings, I learned that her former roommate, " Bits " Cross, was matron of a Baptist orphanage. She told us that Mrs , nee Maude Bristow, was residing in a one-room cabin on a near-by ranch. I could scarcely wait to get there. I wondered if she would serve Nunnally ' s for dinner — instead she served spinach. I found this to be a product of Annie Merle Farrar ' s scientific farming. She was the next door neighbor and the proud possessor of forty acres and a mule. Nora Lee Thornberry and Eloise Rozelle acted as her assistants. The greatest surprise of my visit was to find " Tillie " Thompson giving lectures on the " Rights of Women ! " After learning of Dorothy Caldwell ' s recent election as gov- ernor of Texas, we immediately left for a point farther west. We landed in San Francisco. Upon arriving at the outskirts of the city of San Francisco, we had to pass by a vineyard. Ernestine Parker and Elizabeth McMillan were two of the most important figures found here. Eager to see as much of the city as possible, we hastened on. In going to the opposite side of the street we crossed from the middle of the side walk. Half way across the street we were arrested by a policewoman, none other than Etha Nix. Etha rushed us to the courtroom before I could make myself known. On reaching the court room my astonished eye met with " Ma " Lazenby, the judge. A woman who proved to be Oenone Allen was suing her husband for divorce on the ground of non-support- My attention was attracted by the tone of familiarity in the lawyer ' s voice. I scrutinized her face and recalled Eloise Meroney. On the strength of Eloise ' s usual argumentative power, the divorce was granted. Feeling grateful, Oenone honored us with dinner. My eye was attracted by an apparently weary woman perched upon the counter stool. She was avariciously gulping a cup of coffee. While she was endeavoring to jew the waiter on the price of the coffee, I 30 T E C II N A L A I IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIH recognized Mamie Williamson ' s voice. She told us that she had accepted the position as travelling saleswoman for the Brown Shoe Company in order to get her shoes free of charge. Her salary from teaching had failed to cover her shoe bill. Mamie handed us the morning ' s paper, pointing to the picture of Helen Smartt and the announcement of her wedding. In the society notes, I also read of Addie Dean ' s and Grace Hardy ' s wonderful achievements in music at a French Conservatory. Mamie said that Ruth Hardy had accompanied Grace to France and remained to do active service as a Red Cross nurse. We were reluctant to leave San Francisco, but on reviewing our sched- ule it suddenly dawned upon us that the furlough would be ended soon. I received a letter from Leila Purvis urging us to come to Salt Lake City. We did, and found Leila living in the slums, where she was doing sociologi- cal research work. She took us to the university, where I found Minnie Sellers as a scholar whose learning and versatility made her a peer among the wise. We also found Ruth Faris here, who was private secretary for the president. On passing through this college I felt justly proud to learn that one of the girls of seventeen was posing here to have her dimples painted. It was Ruth Pearce. Ruth told us that Ada Camp was still " a Camp " since giving up her work as an assistant Y. W. C. A. worker. On receiving a telegram to go to Alabama, we left immediately. We found the telegram to be nothing serious, only insistent. Again we had the misfortune of breaking the aeroplane. We hired a touring car to go visit Alabama ' s famous mountains — the Sand Mountains. Here we found " Nan " Weldon and " Jo " Sanders living in the single blessedness of spinster- hood in a tiny bungalow. Jo ' s hours were spent in dreaming of " Pigs " — Nan of the " Pens. " We continued our ride, but had not gone very long before we had to stop. An old red and yellow Ford runabout had had its break-down in the middle of the highway. Two feeble maids of Bostonian precision were " out " and " under " laboriously tugging. Of course we offered our assistance. You may imagine my surprise when I was brought face to face with Callie Poole and May Silliman. They seemed pleased to see us, and after helping them we sat to talk. I learned of their disap- pointments. Callie said, " Of all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest of these, it might have been. " May gleefully said, " Just as sunshine follows rain, so does joy follow sorrow. " We went on, and came to a small but very hygienic village. No wonder ! Emma Ramsey was mayor and was putting into practice her abundant knowledge of Civics and Health. Here we found Carrie Head at the head of the " head dress " department, her assist- ant being Maud Sandlin. This village was fortunate in being the home of such celebrities. T E C H N ALA 31 Having had the aeroplane repaired, we went in search of my remaining unseen class-mates, who we heard were in Tennessee. We first learned of Inez Jeffrey, who had become famous as a Christian Scientist reader. On visiting Peabody, I found Sula Stewart taking a home-maker ' s course. Sula told us that Mamie Hearn was putting her course into practice. We pursued our interests, and night found us in Chattanooga. Ethel McGowin was visiting here, carrying with her a goodly fortune gained from selling patent medicine. She told us that only a few days before she visited the new type of spelling school taught by Clyde Smilie. She also told us of Ella Mason, who had been holding a responsible position in this city, but became frightened at a burning pavement and returned to the calm country. When we bought the night ' s paper I noticed the following headlines : " American woman while tracing her ancestry in Germany was mistaken for a spy. " This was the fate of Theo Kuffner. Having meditated the while over the year ' s pleasure I have had in knowing you, my clear class-mates, I rejoice over your victories of the past and hope that they will be but stepping stones to greater achievements in your future.

From all over Dixieland girls gathered to make up our ggHg class. The Sub-Freshmen were no1 the only ones to hie themselves to A. G. T. I., but to us they were the most important ones. Several important events of our class were the picnic and the basket-ball and other athletic games. We separated in May 1916, only to come together again in September of the same year. Some of our old members did not come back, but our ranks were filled with others who were worthy o f member- ship. We held a meeting of the Freshman class in September, and elected our officers for the year. The following were elected : Phyllis Westbrook President Minnie Camp Vice-President Bertha Burns Secretary Pattie Sanford Treasurer Evelyn Lee Musician Annie Carmichael Poet Sara Liston Artist Florence Lewis Critic Lucile Pease Historian Annabel Standifer Marshal Laura Moseley Marshal Louise King Athletic Director Minnie Camp Athletic Director Minnie Camp and Laura Mosely were compelled to resign on account of ill health, and we elected girls to fill their places. Florence Lewis was made Vice-President; Annabel Standifer, Athletic Director; and Iola Steele, Marshal. In February, our President, Phyllis Westbrook, resigned, and our Vice-President, Florence Lewis, took her place. Archie Newman was elected Vice-President to take the place of Florence Lewis. Our class advisers were Miss Kirk and Miss Powers. Several very entertaining features have occurred during the year. We have had some basket ball games, base ball practices and other athletic pastimes. We have also given teas for the swimming pool fund, and we think they were very successful. Besides these, the class gave a delightful masquerade ball in honor of their sister class, the Juniors. It is much to our credit that several Freshmen have been on the honor roll. In Nature ' s code it is ordained That finished tasks but pave the way For greater tasks ; steps toil has gained Lead onward to the perfect day. Sometimes a word two uses blends, As here one meaning seems to lurk ; The end of college days portends " Commencement " of life ' s larger work. ■ — Burton.

The question of dishonesty on examinations and tests was presented to the students by classes. Each class agreed that it was a thing that had to be stopped and that only the students themselves could stop. Each class adopted the following resolution : There shall be elected, to form an Honor Board, three students from the Senior Class, two students from the Junior Class, one student from the Sophomore Class, one student from the Freshman Class, one student from the Sub-Freshman Class. I. It shall be the duty of this board to promote a high standard of honor in all class room work. II. This board shall draw up and recommend to the several classes, articles pertaining to honor on examinations. III. It shall be the duty of this board to investigate with proper class advisers any irregularities pertaining to tests or examinations, which may come to its notice. IV. The Honor Council shall consist of all students who register with the Honor Board and who agree to support the measure recommended by the board. The following students were elected by their respective classes to con- stitute the Honor Board : Senior: Robbie Lee Harmon, Leila Purvis, Dorothy Caldwell. Junior: Jessie Dean, Eyrie Hatton. Sophomore : Minnie Cross. Freshman : Phyllis Westbrook. Sub-Freshman : Theresa Marshall. The board elected as its president, Dorothy Caldwell, and as secretary, Eyrie Hatton. The board agreed to stand for expulsion in case of dishon- esty on examinations, and to uphold the honor of the student body by correspondingly severe penalties for other forms of dishonesty. The following pledge was required of all who would become members of the Honor Council : T E a ii I ifllllllllll 59 Honor Council Pledge I. I will support the Honor Board in all of its actions. II. I will use no unfair means on examinations or tests. III. I will report to the Honor Board any unfairness on examinations or tests that I know to have been used by another student. Eighty per cent of the student body signed this pledge in the mass meeting in which it was presented. Practically all of the others present were willing to sign all except the third clause. The Honor Board is very much gratified at the individual support that it has received from the student body. We believe that the movement has already made cheating on examinations a thing of the past at Montevallo and has raised and will continue to raise the standard of honor. Dorothy Caldwell, ' 17.

Since then they have de- feated the Sophs, Freshmen and Sub-Fresh, teams. Baseball games have been called off for the remainder of the session. Two selected teams are now practicing for a match game in basket ball for commencement. We are going to give the visitors something to talk about iu t lie albeit ic line at A. G. T. 1. The athletic board has promised all the proceeds, aside from expenses, to the swimming pool fund, which amounts to $125. Money is running low on account of the heavy expense this year, but we are planning great things for next year.

On! On! You ' ll win! " cheered the ex- cited crowd. Eagerly they leaned forward to watch the girls as hand over hand they neared the goal. " O-o-o-o-h! " breathed the tense crowd, as inch by inch the opponent gained ground. Forgetful of dignity, teachers and officers climbed on top of ladders, hung over the banis- ters to catch a glimpse of each swimmer as she strove to win the medal for her school. ' Twas a gala day and even the moment was here. Great crowds had gathered around the magnificent swimming pool to witness the first inter-collegiate contest, the swimming race! Louder and louder cheered the girls as their athletic star came shoulder to shoulder with her opponent. " She ' s gaining! " shrieked the crowd. " We ' ll win! " With steady, firm strokes, cool and self- possessed, she neared the goal. " Together girls! One, two, three, One zippa, two zippa, three zippa, zim Ag Ti, Ag Ti lead ' s the Swim, Rippety Rah! Zippety Zah! Purple and gold will reach the bar. " Silence, and then — " We ' ve won! Victory for A. G. T.
