She has shown initiative and executive ability as chairman of the pro- gram committee of the V. W. C. A. To have the happy fortune of being one of her friends is a rare opportunity to be cherished by the most of us. Lida is a regular curiosity shop of a par- ticular type of information, especially in French. Kathleen K.

We know that Ethel ' s teaching ca- reer will not be long, for in her Boston Cooking School cook book she has found the secret of the way to man ' s heart. She made A in the Practice Home, too.

Ernestine charms us, fascinates us, and then works our pep up to the highest pitch by her magic music. Not only for this do we love her, but for her attractiveness, winsomeness and sin- cerity. 15 ffrni Technala 19 2 4 M LiLLiE Lou Burleson, B.S.

Patient and kindly, Annie is the friendliest Kir ' who ever really cared whether the other girls found Alabama College just riglit and if the " other girl " knew Annie, the place was bound to be about perfect. Annie ' s unselfish forbear- ance and thoughtfulness bring her our friend- ship; her clear-eyed vision brings her our re- spect; her brilliance our admiration; and we ourselves hasten to bring her our love.

S ie is not a " Comedy of Errors " nor " A Midsummer ' s Night Dream " but take it " As You Like It, " she is just what she seems. The best of all, it is said, comes in small pack- ages. This can be truly said of Mary. She can be characterized b " a charming personality, irresistible sweetness, and a somethingness that makes every one like her. She is not afraid of work, but not in sympathy with it. We are all proud of the fact that Mary is the first to receive an A.B. degree from Alabama College.

" Deys water runs smoothly " is very applicable to Ciussie. She is usually quiet, but does not lack humor vhen time comes to play. She is extremely fond of going to the show and eating cherry sundaes.

C. A., 1923-24; Assistant Editor of School Paper. 1922-23; Vice-President of Senior Class, 1923-24. Truly the Class of ' 2+ owes fate a vote of thanks for having sent us " H. Johnson " . Big-hearted, jolly, witty, and amiable, that ' s Helen. When- ever you feel blue or want a thing done, go to her. " Good nature and good sense must ever join. " To sum up all her virtues in a single expressive sentence, " Big ' un " is a " good ole sport " personified.

Our " Jo-baby " with her " permanent, " her rep- utation as our best dancer, and the fact that all men ' s hearts open for her, suggests a true flapper; but we who know her and love her, realize that there is underneath a fine girl with a depth of character and sincerity that will al- ways bring her a welcoming world wherever she goes. iS Technala 19 2 4 B Julia Kii inROiGH, A.R., 77 .1 2 ' thomasvillf, alab m " Kim " Enteicil IDl ' O; As5islant Mation I ' lJJ ' 31 ( ' lu ' .

Only a girl brimming over with good sports- manship could hear herself acclaimed her Alma Mater ' s most capable, most popular, most charm- ing on the st:ige, and best all-round girl, and still remain the same Ed. Her wit and ingenuity used to get her into scrapes. Now they keep other people from getting in. She keeps our good humor at such top-notch that our honor stars there too. Leacy Newell, A.B. Entered 1920; Home Economics Club. 1921-22-23- 24; Monk Literal ' Society. 1922-23. Remember, Home Ec is never a losing course. It stands for " homus " and home, or if you are more mercenary than living, it stands per money. So with your U.S. in hand, you should face the future unafraid. y 19 TecKnala 19 2 4 M Rebekah Pruitt, A.B. hurtsboro, alabama " Beck " Entered High School 1920; Entered College 1921, Honor Roll, 1920-21-22-23: Home Service Commit- tee: Y.

In life ' s saddest moments look up Beck, for she ' s there with a smile when everything goes wrong. Verxelle Ray, A.B. HOCKLEBURG, ALABAMA Entered 1921; Art Club: Bunbury Literary Society. Calm, firm, and ruler of her own mind. Ad- mired by many, understood by a few. Vernelle has the rare gift of remaining silent, when she has nothing to say.

We wonder how Catherine made A ' s and pic- tures of the faculty at the same time, and whether in the pictures she will change the words of the tune to the song she sang at a certain wed- ding, " Rah, Rah! " Lillian ' H. Stewart.

The often quoted ivords, " To know her is to love her, " fit " Hillie " to a " t " . She is a capable, genuine and true friend to all, and our hands are outstretched to her as she leaves her Alma Mater to accept the grand and glorious position of " Love, Honor, and Obey.

Precious articles come in small packages, and Julia is certainly a fair example of this. She is a little bundle of executive ability, pleasing manners, vivacity, and level-headedness. There are few such lovable, attractive, faithful and dependable girls. She attends to her own busi- ness and " lets the rest of the world go by. " Technala 19 2 4 y£=S-- )enior Class Will E, the Senior Class of Alabama College, about to die, salute thee.

And now after years of waiting, it was suddenly dragged out of its corner into the bright shaft of sunlight which streamed in ii through the tiny attic window. No wonder its brass-bound corners blinked and winked in the sudden, unfamiliar light, for this was in year 1946, and it had been hidden away in the dark for twenty-odd years. Elizabeth Ann lived in the self-same house in which her grandfather had lived and to which her father had brought his bride when he married the little Alabama school-teacher in 1926. She had her mother ' s name, and she had been promised that on the very day she finished high school she should be allowed to see inside the mysterious Big Cedar Chest in the attic. And now the eventful day had arrived, her mother had given her the key, and she had just pulled it out of its corner. With a thrill of excitement she dropped down upon her knees before it, turned the key in the lock, and softly opened back the heavy cover. Then she gave a gasp of surprise, for on the very tip-top lay a letter, newly written, and addressed to her in her mother ' s familiar handwriting. Trembling with excitement, she read: " My Dearest Daughter: " I have just written this letter to you to explain the contents of the big chest which you have always wanted to open. I have kept these precious remnants of my college days for you until you have finished high school and are ready to go away to college yourself. They are memories of the happiest days of my life, and I want you to have them so that when you go to the South ' s greatest college you may know and be proud that Elizabeth Ann Gaillard, your own mother, was president of its very first Senior Class! The members of that class were all very dear to me and all of them are successfully finishing the careers that they began in Alabama College. So, before you go further into the contents here I want to tell you briefly who and what they are in this world of 1946 so that you may feel that you really know your mother ' s class mates. " Lida Allen you have heard of, for she is the national Y. W. C. A. Secretary. Kathleen Arnold, whom all the class loved, is making a very successful biologist at the same university where Mae Sullivan has recently been appointed Dean of Women. " The famous Alabama group of artists whose concerts you heard in New York recently, were none other than Janice Fuquay, Billy Tatum, Ernestine Bonner, and Josephine Kilgore, all of them graduates in my Class of ' 24. " Alice Benton was the inventor of the famous ' Maiden ' s Blush Rouge, ' and does an enormous business, with Bessie Copeland and Gussie Hagood as her principal salesladies. They certainly must have changed in the amount of talking they do, for we always thought them so quiet and shy. " And did you know that all of your graduating clothes came from Julia Kimbrough ' s large ready-to-wear clothing store in ' irginia? She was always trying to sell something! And I have heard that she employs two of her own classmates — Julia Tuberville as modiste and Minnie Rentz as her chief designer for ' stylish stouts. ' " The stage has captured two of our girls as we always knew it would. Edith Montgom- ery has appeared on Broadway every night for sixteen years and the close-ups of Mary Crossly in the movies are marvelous! 24 Technala 19 2 4 M " Rebekah Priiett, our intellectual wonder, is Alabama ' s first voman Governor, and Ruth Sanford is fast becoming famous as a la%vyer in the divorce courts of California. " Speaking of divorce reminds me of Minnie Holman. Dear Minnie! She got her divorce and is now perfectly free to go on with her career of mending broken homes. And when you go to Alabama College, Elizabeth Ann, you will meet four more of my dear classmates. They were so attached to their Alma Mater that they just had to go back. Ethel Blake is supervisor of Home Economics, she was always good at that, and good old Lil — coaching that famous basketball team ! Of course you ' ll know Annie Carmichael, social director, and a very sweet and lovable one she will be, too. While Leacy Newell is endearing herself to all the students by feeding them a new kind of hash ! " Mamie Eakens and Craig Shelton were among the few sweet and lovable girls who were brave enough to marry after our senior study of ' The Family. ' " You have heard me speak of Mariema Taylor and Helen Johnson I know. They are very happily situated for life in a lovely gift shop at Gadsden, Alabama. " And Elsie Mahaffey! She is at Columbia University yet and will never finish because she is determined to take every course they offer — just as she did at Montevallo ! " Poor Ruth Cunningham! Why is she wasting her talents as she does? We always thought she would compile a history book, but instead she is still serving as reference book for Dr. Bacot! " And do you know, that lovely tea room for Mobile ' s elect society is operated by Lillian Stewart. How she must love it! And in the same city there is Catherine Shepard, who was made famous by the discovery of some notable sketches of Dr. Bacot, Miss Stallworth, Dean Carmichael, and others. She now claims to have established a new school of art with pictures which blend so perfectly into the landscape that they are not there at all. " Now, Elizabeth Ann, I must bring my letter to an end, for I have introduced you to all the Class of ' 24. So delve into the mysteries here and live through my happy college days with me. That yours may be just as happy in dear old Alabama College is the wish of " Your loving Mother. " Two hours Elizabeth Ann spent before the Big Cedar Chest, and each new article that she drew out gave her a new thrill. There were her mother ' s graduating dresses — how quaintly they were fashioned. A funny old cap and gown — a yellowed and crinkled diploma tied with faded purple and gold ribbon. A memory book full of hideous snapshots and many, many other things that had been part of her mother ' s college life. Finally, with a sigh, she softly closed the Big Cedar Chest, and, feeling that she had been on a fairy trip into the land of Yesterday, she stole down into her mother ' s kitchen. Presently, however, she came back, then busily and happily Elizabeth Ann began to polish the brass- bound corners of the Big Cedar Chest, and when they winked and blinked even more merrily than before, she stood up before it and announced, " I ' m so very, ' very glad that Elizabeth Ann Gaillard kept you for me!

It was through a sea of commotion and confusion we passed in the bewildering process of registration, but at last we A ere ready to settle down in the prescribed channels of work, work, work. To us it was experience never to be repeated and never to be forgotten. Then came the refining process, which caused many moans and groans, but the end products were the best, we thought, that the Refining lachine had ever turned out. Our athletic record was a source of never failing pride for the class of 1925, and om ' other accomplishments were in the same proportion. Because of our excelled work and beha lor we were granted pri ileges never before given to a Freshman Class. Then as we entered our Sophomore year fewer in number but prouder in spirit, feeling that we stood on the threshold of wisdom, we did our utmost to gi e the proper care and instruction to the poor little green " rats " whose standing was not to be compared with our own superior one. Realizing that the only way to make them feel at home and not be homesick was to put them to work, we left no stone imturned, and consequently they saw fit to carry out our instructions to the last letter and obey our slightest request or wish as the Roman knights obeyed their generals in olden times. We were again justly proud of our achievements. Though we did not win the loving cup, we tied with the Freshmen for it. Ve showed a wondrous display of college spirit in all of the activities of the year and tiid our bit for our Alma Mater with a loyal mind and a willing hand. The varsitv team gained in efficiency this year, as the Sophomore Class ga e them another me mber, Mildred Moore, who helped Tad Martin and Odelle Carmichael represent our class to the nth degree on the team. Now, in our Junior year, imder the leadership of our capable president, Agnes Hard ' , who has led us so faithfidly through the struggle and successes of our three years of college existence, we are still putting forth our best and making a ne ' er-to-be- forgotten record in the school history. We. as Juniors, have been of vast importance in athletics and the social affairs of the college, and our progress has been made in leaps and bounds. This, like all other Junior years, is a year of anticipation. L nlike our Sophomore feeling of supremac , we are looking forward more to the dignified ranks of Seniordom, but at the same time we are striving to reach the acropolis of our Junior year in all of the standards of our dear Alma ]Mater.

Now, visualize a hundred and ninety Freshmen as they came pouring in laden with suitcases, and peeping shyly from y beneath the brims of their low-drawn bonnets. These Freshmen were easily detected, not only because they were so verdant, but because they were complete questionnaires! No, do not criticize, for do not the wise learn by asking? A glance at the " Who ' s Who? " will show how our class stood. Did we not give to Montevallo the most original, the best actress and one of the beauties? It is not often that one finds quality and quantity so combined as in the class of ' 22, but there it was, and only remained to be further developed. With oiu ' class slightly diminished in number, we assembled again one morning in September, 1923. Lo, we were Sophomores! The Sophomore year has brought many activities besides the daily routine. ou will find our class well representeil in dramatics, athletics, the orchestra. Student Council, and the Technala Staff. We claim four of the arsity members as our own. There are many things of importar.cc in our class history, but modesty forbids us to dwell upon them at any length.

And yet they frolicked over to the ball court as blithely as if they had just completed one of Montevallo ' s restful school days. And the result? — 59-9. When this little duty was finished they started to frolic in real earnest, with a swim for a beginning (and mind you, there was snow outside!), and a picture show party as a climax. And then ? Then they looked about for more worlds to conquer. The actual date was January 17, but pep meetings and yell practices and snake dances began long before that. We like the W. C. A. girls; we enjoy playing them, and we are thrilled o er the results. Just now, as the Technala goes to press, we are looking forward to the return game with V. C. A., as well as one with Alabama. Dec. 14, 1923, Athens College 9 Jan. 17, 1934, Woman ' s College . 15 Feb. 9, 1924, Woman ' s College . 19 Feb. 23, 1924, Alabama .... — Alabama College 59 Alabama College 41 Alabama College 26 Alabama College — 109 Technala : ' av. 19 2 4 fl Jr ' ' TWffi ' ' ' - ' ■ ' ' Here Tney Stand Brave and Fair Our Forwards Look at ' m. Now, the first one there is Tad Tack Taddle Tacky Martin. (That isn ' t her real name, but everybody calls her that for short). She lives away down in South Alabama, and she plays ball at Montevallo for pastime. Why, she can shoot goals so fast that the best guard anywhere takes the headache to even see her, much less guard her. Now, the big ferocious one in the center is Lillie Lou Levada Burleson from Guinn. Look at her eye. She has a keen eye and she never misses her aim, be it goals or men. Mildred Keahey is one of our three. Well, her name just exactly fits in that sen- tence to make it rhyme. That is about the best characteristic Keahey has. She fits in wherever she is needed and she makes things hum, especially her opponent. " She is demure and sweet, but in basketball she can ' t be beat. " Technala 19 2 4 Oh, Hail!— Rak! Rak! Rak!!! Centers " Great Ceesar, get out of the way quick. There she comes — that jumping center. " That ' s what all the opposing teams say, and they say right. When Albritton makes a leap after that ball it ' s gone. She always gets it, and there ' s no need for anybody to get in her way, because: For Mnntevallo she jumps, Ever loyal, ever true ; And no matter what comes, She " comes smilin ' through. " Our running center is Odelle Carmichael. She ' s not so tall and not so fat, but she can run and she just naturally plays ball. Never mistakes the signals and never fails to be at the appointed place at the appointed time — that ' s Odelle. Of course, we think lots of her for her basketball work, but we lo e her because she is a good sport, and we love her because — well, to tell you the truth, we can ' t help it. And this is Ward. She is the girl who jumps just like she has springs in her shoes and fire under her feet. I mean, she moves, sister, she moves. Just look her over! We think she can ' t be beat; we know she can ' t be beat. Basketball isn ' t all she knows either; but, then, that ' s all that is supposed to be told about her here. Technala 19 2 4 M Bringing Up the Rear G U ARDS Here ' s the second famous " Stonewall " — Edith Thomas. It you doubt it. try to brush her aside with a dribble, and you will come up with four hands on the ball instead of two. There are plenty of people who will back up that statement. Edith is the cool, sm ' ting type. She doesn ' t ay much, but goes in and shows you. She can lead any forward a merry chase any old day. ' N this is Bill — Bill Smith. She has a good old solid name, and she is a good old solid girl. You wouldn ' t stretch the truth a bit if you said Bill could outtalk a Billie goat. She can. We all know it, too. That ' s not all she can do, though. She can actually play ball. Nobody dares gainsay it, either; at least, it wouldn ' t be healthy for them afterwards — if they did. After all is said and done. Bill is a fine, fun- lo ' ing kid. And last but not least, co:ncs nld llcleji Townsend, To see thf)se A ' s on her report You would naturally think She wasn ' t any athletic sport. But that ' s just where your brain has a kink. Just let Helen open her mouth and start toward a forward — All ' s well that ends well and that forward never throws a goal. Technala 19 2 4 Everybody, Ho! Tke Rats Are on Top!! ES sir-e-e-e! They are up there and all people passing by stop and pay to them — homage. " On top " is the highest rung of Montevallo ' s ladder, Basketball Honors. ou may wonder how " rats " can scamper to so high a position. Well, here is the story of how it happened. They did not crawl up the sides of foul play; they did not attempt to scale the thing and get on top by one leap of foolish, self-confident egotism. No, they did not do that. They climbed up the straight and narrow way, holding firmly to the rungs of daily practice, hard work, earnest effort, fair play, and co-operative spirit. They weakened not, these " rats, " and they gained their reward — the topmost aim of basketball, plus the respect and awe of every upperclassman in Alabama College. If you want straight hand information about just what they did on each day that thev played, peep at Capt. Rat ' s diary. She has consented to let you read certain ex- tracts that will help you. ExTR.ACTs From Capt. Rat ' s Diarv Nov. l6, 1923: Singin ' tra la la; I ' m happy; oh me, oh my, I ' m happy. We didn ' t do nothin ' else but beat up em old dignified Seniors today — beat em 13-10. Pretty good score considerin ' ever ' thing. Ward jumped and she jumped high, seemed that that kid wuz on springs she jmnped so high. Farewell, dear Seniors, and lots o ' love! Rah! Rah! Rah! R-A-T-S ! ! ! Nov. 23, 1923: We have left the " Sophs " ' way behind this time. Guess we took ' em down a peg or two with a score of 31-9. It ' s great to be a " rat " and be able to feel (even if i,ou can ' t say it) doggone it, I am worth just as much as you are, you imposin ' upper classman ! Things do hum tonight. Everbody is saying, " The ' rats ' are good sports, and didn ' t that team play a good game, and say — did you .see Traniuii when she slung that ball clean across the court? " That ' s what the people say. Good-night, diarv. You got plenty to mediate on. Sleepilx ' , C.apt. Dec. 8, 1923 : " Hip-hoo-ray ! " " We have won this day! " " Who ' s won it, you say? " " I say— Rats! Rats! Rats! " And it ' s the truth — we beat the Sophomores 11-6. It just means that we are the champions. Let me say it one more time. We, the " rats " have won! " Ain ' t it a grand and glorious feelin ' ? " I ' m happily, Capt. The " rats " are a happy bunch and a jolh ' bunch of people — carefree and enjoying life. Let us wish them success in their athletics forevermore. 19 2 4 Fresliman Te am Forwards Tope Martin Fay Turner Alma Claire Revel ESTELLE BrOADWAY Helen ' Allison Guards Ina Mae Malone Mildred Gilchrist (Capt.)

During the past year twelve Senior members and five Junior members have been added to its numbers. The motto of the Life Saving Corps is " every girl a swimmer and every swimmer a life-saver. " In order to keep every member efficient the corps meets twice a month to practice the different breaks and to review the reserve work. Captain ates, of the Southern Division of the American Red Cross, has paid two visits to Montevallo in the interest of the life-saving work. These much appreci- ated and highh ' instructive visits have served to arouse interest in the work among the entire student body and to encourage the members to greater work. Captain " V ' ates has, at different times, appointed as examiners the following members: Mrs. Sharpe, Miss Funk, Miss Palmer, Miss Meroney, Mrs. Farris, Elsie Mahaf ey, and Anna Laura Dunn. This year the Corps agreed to assist the Y. W. C. A. in putting over the drive for the annual roll call of the American Red Cross. It is the ambition of the Life- Saving Corps to have the college go one hundred per cent in this drive.

There is a regular hiking councillor, and she plans many hikes through- out the year. There are short ones and long ones, and everybody who participates in them is ever afterwards a great booster. " Ah, get into your breeches, fill up your hide with Hershey ' s, and let ' s walk away our troubles. " Sisters, if you want t ' spread joy just pray that we go camping today. That ' s the way ] Iontevallo sports feel about camping. It is one of our strong points, and once to have gone on a camp is to want to go again. Everybody has a good time. Think of the coffee boiled in a bucket, break toasted on forked sticks, broiled bacon, potatoes fried brown as nuts, sleep in the open fields! Camping is the life. Provision for a hockey team was made last year under the supervision of the athletic directors. There was a fight and a scramble to see who would be chosen for the team. The girls used to go out every afternoon last spring with clubs thrown over their backs, and walking with a " hail-fellow-well-met " smile upon their faces. They worked hard and it was a good team that they had. This year, there is going to be a team even better than last 5 ' ear ' s because they will have longer to work. Five tennis courts there are on Montevallo ' s athletic field. Probably the most delightful phase of all our athletics is tennis. No more pleasing sight do we ever see than the tournament games. ' Most any time after winter has gone you can hear this sort of conversation : " How ' bout a game o ' tennis, Odelle? " " When? " " Fine, I ' ll go get m ' racquet.

The Most CapahUj the Best Actress the Best All-Roundj and the Most Popular The students of Alabama College, And a brainy crowd are they. Selected Edith Montgomery The most capable girl of today. But when they found that on the stage She rivaled Sara Bernhardt, They decided her most capable When she took an actress ' part. After two years as president Of the Student Government Association Edith was known to be capable Of any occupation. ' ; Thus the students thought her Worthy of being crowned, And to differentiate her from the rest. Voted her the best " all-round. " So Edith was forced to change her name Before finishing college, for, you see, She couldn ' t escape the title of " Miss Popularity. " Most Lovable and Most Sincere Because to everyone, Annie Carmichael is so dear. She was voted the most lovable and the most sincere. Best Athlete Tad Martin knows the formula Of " high score " in a basketball game, And for this, among various feats. As an athlete, she has won fame. Most Strikins and Most Stylish Why Elizabeth Simms is not a member Of some labor union is often wondered. Because the fact that she is " striking " is confirmed By Alabama College six hundred; Or why she should not wish That her fame might reach afar, ■ ' ■ .

Can Catherine Braswell be blamed For being a bit conceited, hen such a bird as the peacock Must agree that she has not been cheated? Biggest Bluff Teachers, beware of Ruth Sandford. She was voted the biggest bluff. The best antidote for her " courting " Is not a pinch of salt, but a box of snuff! Most Bcniitiful With blue eyes, fair complexion And golden, bobbed hair, Minnie Lee Dozier With ' enus does compare.
