In a small brick building on the northeast corner of VVillow and Chamberlain Streets, the school was started, but it was not long before the enrollment outgrew such small quarters. Through the efforts of some leading citizens, public opinion was aroused to the needs of the situation and in 1906 the County Court passed a resolution authorizing the erection of a modern school building. The present site on Dodds Avenue was selected as a suitable location for a school and construction began the same year. As often happens in such cases, work on the building was delayed, thus making it necessary to hold classes for half a year in the building of the old Ridgedale Grammar School. Finally, however, the building was completed and in 1907 the school was opened with an organization of ten teachers and several hundred students. The original structure which consisted of what is now the center section was built at a total cost of S75,ooo. The first principal of the school was Mr. A. E. Darrow, under whose capable management splendid progress was made. So popular was: the institution that at the end of the first year it was necessary to enlarge the building and an addition, the east wing, was made. Shortly after- ward the Gymnasium was added and physical training became part of the curriculum. The second principal was Mr. J. S. Zeigler, during whose administration the school grew steadily. In 1920 Mr. Zeigler was succeeded by Mr. S. E. Nelson. During the eight years of Mr. Nelsonis principalship the growth and development of the school have been continuous and rapid. The south wing, which contains the auditorium as well as class rooms, was added to the building in 1923. In 1926 the north wing completed the present structure, making the building one of architectural beauty and grace. At present Central High School is one of the best equipped schools in the state while its scholastic standing places it on the list of accredited preparatory schools recognized from east to west. There are at present about sixteen hundred students and a faculty of more than sixty members. Central students and alumni now numbering in the hundreds or perhaps thousands, point with pride to their Alma Mater. The history of the school from the beginning has been a brilliant one. The first twenty-one years of the life of a school or individual are usually fraught with doubts and uncertainties but now that Central has "attained her majority,'l everything indicates a future of continuous progress. Centralqs Twenty-onel I hear a thousand voices, In notes blended sweet and clear, And still thousands more advancing join in and listen there. It is a rare occasion, Which charms the very air, Sons and daughters pay homage To their Alma Mater fair. Myriad and myriad of voices Chime together in familar song, And others speak their praises Of experience rich and strong. No note of sadness is sounded, None with her can compare, Sons and daughters pay homage To their Alma Mater fair. Up from the ranks advancing, What can the meaning be? Boys now grown into manhood, Doctors and lawyers I see. Each is bearing a banner, Proudly he holds it thereg For sons and daughters pay homage To their Alma Mater fair. At last the spell is broken, The dream unfolded layg The cause of this rare occasion, t'Central's twenty-one," they say. t'All who know her love her, No one unfaithful thereg Sons and daughters pay homage To their Alma Mater fair." ffff f - 516 f CLASSES SEN IORS -r' W 'Mx E 'Wf 'G C H A M P 1 o N 1 9 2 s g fim g , , f ,:,. ...A ., A , s i i 20 av THE 1928 CHAMPION .WQQ-, X ,, H. 1 ', ,LVL I . , l.

Much haste and to Central High School by seven thirty to Senior Party. Met Floyd Lentx so knew I was not late. On entering saw much decoration in colors and leaves for Season's Party. Being presented with autograph album at door did work hard to get names. Verily do believe the prize due me 1 had there been one, for my album was full. Talking to my friend, Louis Smartt, not arguing but much ' interested, heard a whistle, looking around saw Miss Mary Helen Richardson on steps making a speech. Saw Father Time near and was much shocked to know that this was the modest Miss Anna Maye Lieb. Now up and on my way to Spring Room: Much laughter when Harry WVilliams took Mr. Bales' picture which did develop into a handsome baby and Mr. Headrick's into a vicious cow. Many funny pictures and funny clown, Charles Jackson. Up and down hall, had a pleasant meeting with a familiar face. Looked again, saw it to be George Mclnturf of last year's class. From here to room where fortunes were told. Amazing it was to hear Mr. Robinson, Miss New- berry and Mr. Hunt lift the veil of the past and future. Knowing myself so well I durst not have mine told, but eagerly did I listen to others. Did strike me as wonderful the truth they did tell! Next to winter room Where I did verily believe it to be Christmas for there was Santa Claus and Christmas tree, received gladly whistleg mine being very like in appearance and sound to Mr. Nelson's. 'Up and to auditorium where Jane Boyd did dance like a fairy. Mildred Bowling and Nell Creasman dressed like Howers, Miriam Marshall, Regina Sundstrom and Elizabeth Hall like witches, and Ruth Harden like a snowball, in dancing did surprise me at use they had of the feet. Indoor football stunt good, but like my friend Hatfield, disappointed that love scene did not get DFIZ6. Now to cafeteria and pretty merry: and here was Mr. Nelson who did eat sandwiches and Dixie cups with us. Much did he say which pleased me and the Senior Class. From it all we do believe that he likes us, has faith in us, and leans heavily on us for upholding ideals of school. Thus did end night with joy everywhere, and I have not heard of a mischance to anybody through it all. , November 26, 1927. Up early and busy all morning making ready for City'Central game. To Chamberlain Field by one o'clock to get good seat. But not so, truly almost all seats filled, so up high I had to go. Excitement everywhere, at two, big game called. "Central must win." Did hear yelling until I did stop my ears to keep out sound. Could not stand up: could not sit down in comfort for fear Central might lose. To top of my voice did I yell when Key carried ball across line. Another victory for Central as I did expect! December 26, 1927-Senior Play. To the Central High School auditorium, and there I saw "The Taming of the Shrew," by Shakespeare, a merry comedy and very interesting. Jack Sherman's part, Petruchio, was beyond imagination. 'Twas a wondrous change in Katherine, the Shrew, Miss Anna Maye Lieb, which gives us fresh reason to admire the talented Miss Lieb. Never before did I believe a woman could pos- sess so violent a temper. Louis Smartt as a lord, seemed ln his natural element. Grumio, Petruchio's servant, Lavoy Neely, did act the fool to perfection, which proves that it takes a wise man to play the fool. Verily, the music master could not have been better chosen for I have thought many times the actor, Fred Woods, did possess an artistic face. The audience appreciative and well-behaved which did greatly please me. The music of Miss Finley and her orchestra was very appropriate and well executed. Took great pleasure between acts to look about me to see who was present. Near me Was sitting Miss Dorothy Turner whose amiable manner I did note with pleasure, and which did cause me to think how pleasant the . world would be if all did cultivate so friendly a manner. It did amuse me greatly to see two such small men as Kermit Maxwell and Charles Langston take out bodily the stout Christopher Sly played by Charles Craig. Neely would make a man split him- self with laughing to hear him tell Curtis, Miss Ben Addie Coleman, his master's experiences. Joseph Arledge did surprise me much for as the old man, Baptista, I think he did a dne piece of work. But to behold their clothes was a sight worth seeing. I did like Pe- truchio's blue suit and fine boots which I fear were too small for Sherman's average size foot, for they did look tight enough. I did hear the dogs were real animals of the Chase and that the hunter's horn were no imitation being used that same night by regular hunters. All in all it was an excellent play, the more I think of it the more I love the wit of it. JOHN SWEETS. '57 -an fe 2:14. jdvdfun-sg. -1 THE 1928 S CHAMPION S QSLZSM f..f1,-M176 ,7,4,,,,,A,., .

' A-nn ,--If THE 1928 g- ,722 CHAMPION 5 ,u The Class of 1928 CLASS history means little to the outsider, who does not understand the impalpable spirit that is stored in the heart of every Central student, and particularly in the students of the Class of '28. It has been our aim, first, to let those who preceded us in these halls know that we have tried to advance the standards they left for us, and in every way live up to the priceless heritage and ideals of Central High School. It has been our further purpose to gather here and there a thread of events that may be so woven together into a web of memory that it will recall something of those days of work and happiness sustained by that intangible spirit which bound us together as brothers. When this class came to Central in '24, four hundred strong, they very soon learned that there was no "Open Sesame" to success in their high school career. They had the usual ex- periences of the green freshmen who learn much, by hard knocks, in the school of experience. In the spirit of good sportsmanship these knocks were borne, and we came out the better for them. Our watchword from the first has been, 'fwork" and 'fco-operation." With such a motto, sup- ported by an admirable spirit and good judgment, the success of the class along all lines of school activities has been outstanding. ' An instance of good judgment was in the choice of oliicers to guide through the four years of high school life. Eugene Mayer was elected president in 1924, and succeeded himself in each of the three years which followed. Eugene did his work faithfully and well, and his leadership will be always remembered with pride and pleasure. Other ofiicers who have given the class their loyal support are Mary Helen Richardson, Howard Anderson, Mozelle Vander- griff, and john Waller. The Class of '28 commends highly the excellent and efhcient service of these members, and gives to them much of the credit for the way in which the class worked so well together. Socially, this class has proven a success. We remember well, first as guests, then as hosts, the Freshman-Sophomore pa1'ties and the Junior-Senior banquets. Many pronounced the Junior banquet of '27, at the Read House, the most orderly and most pleasing social event in the history of the school. Entertainments given by this class have always been received well. UThe Goose Hangs High," a modern drama presented in our junior year, and in the Senior year, "The Taming of the Shrew," a Shakespearean comedy, were both most creditably given. The leading roles were taken by Gladys Hickey and jack Sherman in the junior play, and by Anna Maye Lieb and Jack Sherman in the Senior play. In the field of athletics this class has left a splendid record. In the two successive years that Central held the city championship, the Class of '28 was well represented in the personnel of the team. Members of the team of '27 and '28 have become immortalized in the hearts of the Central students. The Thanksgiving game made the student body realize the power of that indissoluble school spirit embodied in the team. Many have been the associations and friendships formed here. Perhaps in years to come, over no period of our lives will the light of happy association shine more brightly than over these four years spent at Central High School. Many of the lessons taught will be forgotten, others remembered will become a part of life's rich heritage. In spite of the fact that some things must pass into oblivion, we like to think of others as lasting through life, like the staunch, true friendship of Mr. Nelson and the kind and gentle inliuence of Mother Callis, both of whom commanded the love and respect of every boy and girl of the class. As the years have come and gone, each seems to fade into insignificance as compared with the last year. "As goes the Senior Class so goes the school." If this is true, from all indica- tions the Seniors have not been faithless to their trust, for never has Central had a more success- ful year than that of '27-'28. This year it was found that in addition to regular work much time must be spent in keeping up the traditions and customs established by previous senior classes. Now, with many of these things behind us, and perhaps the most cherished and best yet to come, the Class of '28 all join in reverent unison to their Alma Mater, saying, 'tTruly it has been good to be here."

Secretary Junior History N September, x925, there set sail upon the sea of secondary education the good ship, "'29," manned by a jolly crew of boys and girls. To be sure some of the sailors were a bit inexperienced. There were slight attacks of seasickness at first, and many wailed that we were indeed, Hall at sea." But soon the waves ceased to rock us so violently, or to seem so big, and we grew to like our new home on the "rolling deep." Then, too, we chose a valiant captain, George McCarty, who assisted by chief mates, Wilhelmina Haggard, I. T. Holden, and Harry Jackson, taught us to pull together and make speedier progress. Our first encounter was an amicable one. The good ship, '28, thinking perhaps we felt a bit lost and lonely on the high seas, invited us to moor our boat and board theirs for the evening. We were delighted with the hospitality of their jolly class and had a very enjoyable tripa indeed. For a long while everything was peaceful and we, as freshmen, were 'fmeek and mi .U In the fall of '26 we manned our oars with an air of seasoned veterans. There were sighs for comrades who had been lost upon the rocks, but joy in the companionship of new recruits. fContinuerl on Page 682 55 K, THE 1928 X. .522 CHAMPION X Ruth Acree Flossie Adamson Leona Akard David Allender Flossie Allen Lester Allen Tom Allison I-Iellen Apperson Sue Ashley Ethel Atkins Mltchel Austin Grace Bacon Robert Taylor Ballinger Anne Pauline Barber Owen Barns Lowell Grant Bean William Ashley Beasley Audrle Christine Beck Mildred Virginia Beck Jessie Mae Bell Ela Frances Bernheart Richard William Bethea Edna Lee Bivens Frank Finley Blakly Lee Ray Blackwell Mae Bell Black Thomas Ozell Bolden Ray Byrun Bolt Eurine Martha Boss Virginia Bostain Edna Ruth Bowman Pauline Bowman Delzell Boyd Martha Rose Bracken Frank Windy Bradford Catherine E.

When we first left port, the harbor was hidden in a fog of con- fusion, but this cleared with the coming of the sun in the shape of our first class meeting. Life at sea was rather boring and we craved excitement. Suddenly from out of the sky came a giant green bird-like object. It was manned by about 4.00 queer-looking individuals, whom we soon found to be Freshmen. Being of a hospitable nature we hailed them and asked them to stop with us a while. They were delighted and accepted readily. We entertained them as best we could during the evening, and when they departed from us they declared that they had had a wonderful time. V A short time later our squadron was suddenly attacked by a huge war-ship! City High! Each ship chose a group of warriors to fight for our squadron. Our ship was represented by Bradford Seagle. We waited. The routine of the ship was suspended! We watched with mingled feelings of hope and fear! At last the battle was over! The Purple and Gold crew was victorious! How proud we were of them! How proud we were of our Alma Mater! There were many forms of amusement during the trip. There were also many troubles and trials, but before we realized it, we had reached the island called Vacation. Half of our perilous trip was over! We had a hard time entering the harbor, for it was barred by some very dangerous whirlpools-Hnal exams. At last we were safely anchored. What a shout went up! How glad we were! Oh, how rich that island with good tfmes! How luxuriant it was in laziness! When the twelfth of September rolled around we were all ready to go aboard. It was decided we should change ships again. We went aboard the "Jolly Junior," which was even nicer than the "Sophisticated Sophomore." We had very few new recruits, but a number of our members had fallen in love with some of the native "hulas" and loitered on the beautiful isle. There was a great deal of responsibility on our new ship. Our craft was one of the leaders. If we went astray the whole squadron would follow. Everyone had an especial place in the routine of work for our Alma Mater. Captain Bradford was re-elected. His mates were George McCarty, Dorothea Hart and Maude Smith. This noble crew piloted our ship through many troubled waters. "Soon -was called a council straight, Brief and bitter the debate." Our ship was low on provisions. We decided to be real pirates and entice all our rich friends to our lair. We erected a number of tents on our decks and used a number of clever devices and games to lure our friends to their fate. We were very successful and were able to carry huge trunks tilled with golden coins to the Central High School Bank. Several weeks later we passed the last peninsula of Vacation Island. We were so close to shore we were able to see a billboard which read, "Col, Chas A. Lindbergh will stop at this city for a few hours today, October 5th." We decided we would declare a holiday and visit the city to see the world-famous hero. After several months of -calm, peaceful weather and happy sailing we again became restless and demanded some recreation. In answer to our demands we were given a play to amuse ourselves. We chose to work. We issued invitations to all our friends to visit our ship on February Ioth, to see our most brilliant and successful suitors per- form. The performance was a great success and the praises we received for the star perform- ance were numerous and enthusiastic. After the excitement caused by one dramatic attempt, life was calm and peaceful once more. But soon there rose a cloud on, the horizon. Final exams were again attacking us, and struggle as we would, some of us were unable to free ourselves from their fatal clutch. Even while we were vainly trying to conquer our ever dreaded enemy, we received word that our sister ship, 'fSeniors," would leave us to drop anchor at her final destination: We suspended our battle and gave a final farewell party for our comrades. We had a royal feast and a jolly good time in spite of the sadness we felt as we watched our Senior ship receive her honorable discharge and sail away to unknown seas. 68 ,fx V Hui iff!

CHAMPION " Q The Class of 1930 T SEEMS to be a generally accepted fact that all freshmen are green-a fact fortunately not so much recognized by individuals of the class at that time, as perhaps, in the following year. The present Sophomore class was no excep- tion'to such a fact. Theirs was the true verdure of the freshman, but since greenness indicates growth, it is with a feeling not of shame, but rather of pride that this class now recalls its history of nearly two years. It was in the early fall of 1926 when the first meeting of the class was called and out of a chaos of about four hundred or more freshmen came an organized body with Wilbur Peterson as president, Earnest Horton, vice-president, John Starr, secretaryg Buford McGhee, treasurer. These officers realizing the responsibility as well as the honor conferred upon them conducted themselves in a most creditable way, whether on the football field fighting for the Purple and Gold, or at the Junior-Senior Ban- quet, representing the class. Very noticeable progress in these officers is indicative of the progress in the entire class. Much bashfulness has been overcome, much self- confidence and wisdom gained, while the Central spirit has become a part of the individual make-up of each member. The class of 1930 during its existence at Central High School has been an active class manifesting commendable spirit where class pride and school spirit were con- tested. Whether gainers or losers the situation has been met well. In athletics the class has made a splendid record. In football, Howard Smith, Wilbur Peterson and Chester Underwood have been the means of bringing credit and honor to the Purple and Gold. In basketball likewise the class has reason to be proud of Fred Sheerer. In 1927 the freshman girls won the loving cup in girls' athletics for superiority over other classes in this line of work. In the Grchestra and Glee Club, Dorothy Martin, Jewel Kragen, Elizabeth White, Edna Gothard, Marie Schneider have made for themselves and their class a name worthy of recognition. In the ticket-selling contest of 1926, this class won third place-an honor not to be despised when the inexperience of the class of that time is considered. In this the Sophomore year the outlook for the class of 1930 is most promising. VVith efficient leaders, Robert Baker, presidentg Wilbur Peterson, vice-president, John Martin, secretary, Hortense Byrd, treasurer, class spirit has been keen and loyalty to Central has been displayed repeatedly.

Z. ., 137' -- -Q -ew . -' '-Q' ' THE 1923 g vffg cHAMP1oN .. e Class of 1931 ATE one winter evening, sitting before an open fire gazing into the dying embers I found myself trying to visualize a scene fifty years in the future while a friend and I, as elderly women, indulge in reminiscences of our hfgh school days and I tell of a class which entered Central High School one day in September, 1927. It was a bewildering situation-that twelfth day of September, 1927. This unwieldy mass of Freshmen-a little shy and timid from entering into a field entirely new- was the largest class that had ever entered Central. The ushers who were stationed here and there in the halls were our salvation. They were Senior girls who answered our inquiries pleas- antly and directed us to our class rooms. In these trying days of the first few weeks, kindness and courtesy shown us by the faculty and upper classmen are well remembered. Our teachers were not merely instructors, they were advisers and friends. Very soon we became acquainted with Mother Callis, our school mother, who proved a friend indeed for she was always a friend in need, ready to comfort, cheer and advise us. ' In a short time we were invited to join the different societies and enter various outside activities. Many of us availed ourselves of the opportunities and soon became so interested in our work, societies, and athletics that we almost forgot that we were beginners. Early in the autumn a lively contest was staged by Freshmen and Sophomores for sub- scriptions to the Central Digest. Many Freshman classes reported one hundred per cent. How proud we were of the victorious record of our first contest! The next important event was the day when we first assembled as a class to elect ofiicers. After a lively contest, Bill Waller was chosen presidentg Howard Brown Blakely, vice-president, Ida Wee Mabry, treasurerg Cor- rine Mayer, secretary, Helen Hall and Henry Rouse, cheer leaders. From this time on things seemed to follow fast one upon the other. In the Central-Baylor game Freshmen could not be distinguished from Seniors, for already they had caught the Cen- tral spirit. Our pride in Central's victory was demonstrated by an enthusiastic "pep meeting." VVords seem inadequate in trying to describe the spirit shown in the Central-City game. Every member of the class apparently felt his responsibility. How proudly the Purple and Gold waved over us! Were cheers ever louder? Could students have supported thefr team more valiantly? No wonder was it that the team won laurels under such circumstances. How vivid the impression of the junior carnival that year! I was never before convinced that "smoke burned," nor did I know that Juniors had such an insight into the future, for their fortune-telling was a revelation. Again class prfde ran high for a dainty Freshman was nom- inated for Carnival Queen. The class showed-good judgment in the choice of Ida Wee Mabry. To the Press Convention which met for the first time in Chattanooga and which was sponsored by Central High School, the Freshman Class sent Robert Mann and Glenn Tallant, as representatives. These brought back an interesting report and gave inspiration for the con- vention next year. Soon the year passed from autumn into winter and winter into spring which brought its festival and activities. Then came commencement when with envious eyes we watched the Seniors, hoping that we too some day might enjoy these same privileges. Thus ended one of the happiest years of my life, so filled with bright spots that the darker days are almost entirely overshadowed.

PERKINSON ,,j2?1+"f5' if THE CHAMPION -TS , ijt, JZ The Reserve Officers Training Corps HE duty of protecting our homes, our property and our families from the dangers of invasion by a foreign foe rests primarily with the Army and Navy, and every male citizen between the ages of eighteen and forty-five years is, in time of national emergency, subject to military duty. The United States Army is now, under an Act of Congress composed of three parts, namely: The Regular Army, the National Guard, and the Organized Reserves. The Regular Army has always been small and will always be relatively so. It is composed of a small body of highly trained specialists, whose duty in time of a great military emergency is to organize and equip our citizen armies, whfch will in the future, as in the past, make up the greater part of our military forces in time of war. While the Regular Army is most needed and appreciated in time of war, there are many examples of its valuable peace-time service-the great Galveston Hood in 1900, the destructive earthquake and fire in San Francisco in 1906, the building of the Panama Canal, the eradication of yellow fever in Cuba and Panama, thereby removing this menace from our beloved South- land, all remind us of the peace-time value of our Regular Army. The National Guard, now better and more eiiicient than ever, has always covered itself with glory, as in the World War, and will ever be an important part of our national defense. The Organized Reserves, however, is the larger part of our Army and it is with a branch of that body that I wish to deal in this article. just now we have the best and greatest number of reserve ofhcers, for the Army, in the one hundred and fifty-two years since the birth of our nation. But this splendid body of officers, trained by experience in the World War, is being depleted each year, by retirement, disability and death. How shall we maintain this splendid reserve? The answer is: by promo- tion and replacement from graduates of the Reserve Ofhcers Training Corps. The junior Units of the R. O. T. C., of which the Central High School Battalion is one of the very best I have ever known, will furnish a very large number of officers for the reserve and a large number of the officers of the regular service. Many appointments to the U. S. Military Academy and to the U. S. Naval Academy are members of Junior R. O. T. C. units. Any graduate of a junior R. O. T. C. unit, can by successfully completing two C. M. T. C. summer training courses, qualify for a commission in the reserve of the United States Army and many young men are taking advantage of this opportunity, thus fitting themselves for greater service to their government and to their communities in times of emergency. Great as is the value of the training from the standpoint of preparedness, the value of the physical training, building of erect, active and healthy bodies, the development of potential leadership in -the boy, giving him confidence in himself and starting him off in his chosen business, profession or vocation with the belief in his ability to succeed, is even greater, and the respect for legally constituted authority, observance of and obedience to reasonable rules and regulations required, is the best way to teach respect for law and order and to make good law-abiding, peaceful, happy, contented citizens-the greatest achievement of all. LIEUTENANT-CoLoNEL JAMES E. WARE. 94 4 L ATI-1LET'ICS THE 1928 Q- 72 CHAMPION Centralis Coaching Staff r Central with sincerity and much pride makes the boast that her coaching stalf is unsurpassed by any high school of the south. Without fear is such a claim made for the proof is self-evident. Dean Peterson, one of Central's own football products with the polish of four years at Auburn and now for three years head coach of Central's "Purple Gridders," has an enviable reputa- tion not only as a coach, but as a man. By his stern insistence on wholesome sportsmanship in every phase of the game he has taught his men not only to be good football players but with it to be clean, honest men which is, after all, the end desired, For two of the three years that he has been head coach at Central his teams have been City Champions, a record of which Central is proud. Coach Bales, a strong support in football and head coach of basketball and baseball, is known by his work. His interest in athletics is far from narrow for it extends into almost every line, but if asked his favorite, no doubt basketball or baseball would be his reply. From a thorough knowledge of these games both in theory and practice he has made a coach loved and admired by his men both for h's skill in the game, his manliness, and strength of character. Seeing Coach Setliffe far removed from the football or track field no one would fail to recognize him as the real athlete that he is. His entire bearing is indicative of his athletic prowess. For his good sportsmanship and success in the field where he labors his men admire him. As head coach of track in 1927 he brought renewed interest to the game and developed a team for Central with one of the best records of many seasons. 97 --4 THE 1928 SX 7722 CHAMPION Q 3 ggi!

HERMAN HUG" UNDERWOOD, Center Weight One Hundred and Seventy-Fve Pounds T lzree-Year Letterman Jug has been the backbone of Central's line. Work- ing at the pivot position he has made outstanding plays both on the offensive and defensive. Since this is Jug's last year he leaves a vacancy which will be very hard to Hll. As captain he has been one of the best, always ready to help and always giving all that he had to the Purple and Gold. He was chosen for the All-City team and his name will go down in Central's football history as one of the greatest of her long list of fighting captains. ' HOIWER HSATCHELH KEY, Halfbaek Weight One Hundred and Fifty Pounds Tfwo-Year Letterman As captain of Central's team for next year, Key de- serves all the honor that has been given him. He is a true triple-threat man. He is one of the hardest driv- ing, shfftiest, and fastest halfbacks ever to wear a Cen- tral uniform. Not one game passed without lKey's coming away with another star in his crown. His pass- ing and punting could not be surpassed. By his tackling he saved many touchdowns. What would the City High game have been without Key? As a safety man hc was more than once the salvation of the Purple eleven. Central is looking to him as Captafn of the 1928 team to lead his men to a clean unquestioned championship. DONALD "FATTY" JONES, Tackle Weight One Hundred and Ninety-Two Pounds, T hree-Year Letterman Donald is another man of the All-City team who has been a mainstay in the line of his own home team. His plays were especially noticeable inthe City High and Baylor games. His work on defense was particularly good. Central will gladly welcome his return another year as alternate captain. HOWARD "Bus" ANDERSON, Halfback Weight One Hundred and Fifty Pounds T hree-Year Letterman Bus has a head which he knows how to use on the foot- ball field. He has that enviable trait of dependability at all times. He is always known to get his man and pave the way for the other back carrying the ball. He is a good tackler. In the Baylor and Philips High games he played star football. There was great ex- citement in the Philips High game when Bus caught a pass and with snappy side stepping ran forty yards for a touchdown. Central will miss Bus when the team is rounded up in 1928. 100 , , .... ... V. E, ...gitgzg , , , hu-L .1 ' " -5 THE 1928 Qi 7,22 CHAMPION EDWARD "EGGHEAD" PETERSON, Quarterback Weight One Hundred and Twenty-Five Pounds Four-Year Letterman Ed is one of the most unusual quarterbacks Central has ever called her own. With three years of rich experi- ence, in this, his fourth year, he has played and run the team with great success. Besides receiving All-City honors for three years he was considered the best in the city on receiving passes. Leaving Central this year there is made in the Central team a wide gap which will be most dillicult to fill, RAYMOND "HOOK" DEARING, Guard Weight One Hundred and Seventy-Three Pounds T1-wo-Year Letterman As a guard Hook is a hard-fighting, scrappy fellow. He drives low and hard and seldom misses his man. The Purple line expects Hook back in position next fall holding that line like the great guard that he is. OBERT "No-Hn" TIMMONS, Guard Weight One Hundred and Sixty-Five Pounds Tfwo-Year Letterman Like a tower of strength in the Purple forward wall has stood Timmons for two years. Undaunted in the City High game he stopped without question attempts to gain at his expense. From the minute the whistle is blown every ounce of his strength turns into power for the Central machine. His plays are consistent. He is a hard worker from start to finish. OWEN UBASHFULH BARNES, Tackle Weight One Hundred and Sixty-Two Pounds T-wo-Year Letterman Although this was only the second year for Barnes on the team he played like a veteran. He proved to be one of the hardest fighters Central has ever produced. He was a deadly tackler and did equally as well on the offensive. In the City High game Barnes by sheer courage and strength broke through the strong Maroon line for many an attack. Central's interest is centered on Barnes for another year. New honors it is believed await him. IOI ::1 . T we HE Qr aiifl CHAMPION JOHN "JAR-HEAD" WALLER Tfwo-Year Letterman When Waller reported for his Hrst year he weighed little more than a hundred pounds, but the next year with added weight plus determination, he gained his KC." He came into possession of his second nickname, H70-Yard," when he ran a punt against Darlington in '26. As Ed Peterson's understudy in ,27 he called signals when Ed was not present This he did credit- ably and well. Since Waller possesses the true Central spirit, always doing his best Without kicking, the team regrets that graduation robs them of such a man. Any team that gets Waller may count itself lucky. HOWARD HIZZYH SMITH, Halfback Weigltt One Hundred and Sixty Pounds Izzy proved without question his ability as a ball car- rier in the Fort Payne, Kingsport and Notre Dame games. Whether he hit the line or ran the ends he always gained. He is a fast snappy football man though slightly "bashful." Unfortunately, during the Baylor game he was hurt and was unable to return the rest of the season. He is expected back next year and will no doubt share in the spoils of the victors. GLENN HLADIES, MANH HUNT, End VVeight One Hundred and Sixty Pounds Tfwo-Year Letterman Because of a shoulder injury, Glenn has been unable' to enter into action as he mfght otherwise have done. Yet in spite of such a handicap in the Baylor and City High games he was seen stopping every attempt to get around his end. He was strong on the offensive. His loyalty to the Purple and Gold as well as his dependability have given him a place all his own on the team. JOHN "TRAMP" SEAGLE, Guard Weight One Hundred and Sixty Pounds Tfwo-Year Letterman There was a great addit'On to Central's team in 1926 when John came from Baylor and cast his lot with the Purple and Gold. He Was one of the scrappiest lit- tle guards seen here in many seasons. For two years he has helped to form Central's stonewall and right well has he held this position. He is another member expected back next year to take his same old place in the same old line. 102 J-4 THE 1928 .Xt Je, CHAMPION F 57 'Q OT1s "Bro MOUTH" LEE, End Weight One Hundred and Fifty-Nine Pounds One-Year Letterman Lee has the reputation of being one of Central's fighters from start to finish. He never gives ing he never stops until the game is ended. His outlook for next year is one'of the brightest of all those who are expected back. CHESTER "ToUcHDowN" UNDERWOOD, End Weight One Hundred and Fifty Pounds One-Year Letterman For a man entering Central for the first year, Chester has done .excellent work as an end player. In the Darlington game he was given his chance and proved himself Worthy. In the Philips High and A. M. I. games he played football like an "old timer." With such a reputation for one-year Chester bids fair to fol- low in the footsteps of his captain brother. BONDS HBALL-OF-FIREH GARMANY, Quarterback Weight One Hundred and Thirty Pounds One-Year Letterman Red has always been a hard-Working man. As a quarterback he is hard-driving and fast. In the Fort Payne, Red took a punt up the field for about thirty- five yards in professional style. With,more experience it remains to be seen just what 'fBall-of-Fire" Will do. VERNE11 "SHE1K" HEADRICK, Guard Weight One Hundred and Seventy-Six Pounds One-Year Letterman Headrick has the distinction of being the only fresh- man to make a letter this year. In spite of his lack of experience in the beg'nning of the year, he developed into a good guard. In the Phillips High game he stood like a bulwark and stopped all attempts 'made to come over him. In the next years, Central will follow with interest the development of this outstanding young player. 103 ........4 -x 4' , . . -u THE 1928 Q 722 CHAMPION . dr F Q.-A E I. g- EUGENE "SKEET" MAYER, Fullback Weigllt One Hundred and Eighty-Four Pounds Although injured for much of the season, "Skeet" played star football while he was in. With him in the line there were no gains by the punting route. In the City High game, he played a big part in stopping the line attacks of the Maroon and White. Skeet has left an enviable football record at Central. His popularity among the students has been tested many times and Central will find hfs place one that will be hard to fill. FRANK HVVINDYH BRADFORD, End Weight One Hundred and Forty-Five Pounds Tfwo-Year Letterman Bradford is one of the best end players Central has ever produced. With such evidence of development and power Central hails with joy his return next year. As a tackler on punts he is deadly, having lived up well to his "never miss" reputation. On the offensive he always gets his man. A fellow has something to boast of if he gains a yard around Bradford's end. WILBUR "HARDHEAD" PETERSON, Halfbace Weight One Hundred and Fifty-One Pounds One-Year Letterman Wilbur has the reputation of being one of the best and hardest driving backs, not only at Central, but in the city. He made a perfect running mate for Key. When Wilbur is called on to carry the ball you may well mark it down as a gain. In the City High, Phillips High and A. M. I. games it was Wilbur who starred. This last member of the Peterson family seems to have every promise of carrying on the reputation in the field of football. PAUL "TAcKHEAD" SELLS, End Weight One Hundred and Forty-Two Pounds One-Year Letterman Tackhead can always be distinguished for he is one of the tallest men of the team. When Central's name and reputation are at stake, Paul's courage and fighting qualities are altogether out of proportion even to his height. It was a great disappointment to him not to get to finish the season, but an injury in the Kingsport game forced him to the side lines. He is a hard- worker and always ready to give his all for his school and team. 104. P ,..,q - 'J ' .- 1 THE 1928 gt iQ CHAMPION HOWARD "DIDLEY" HAMMOND, End Weight One Hundred and Fifty Pounds Tfwo-Year Letterman Howard knows football and knows how to play it. He was unfortunate in receiving an injury in the fourth game, which kept him on the bench for the rest of the season. Since he is the kind of player who has real 'fcome back" Central expects him to return next year full of fight for another victorious season. JAMES 'KPINKIEH LEWIS, Halfbacfc Weight One Hundred and Fifty-Five Pounds One-Year Letterman For a shifty, hard-driving backfield man, Lewis is hard to beat. On defense, for a man to get by him is a wonder. He bids fair from all appearances to be one of the outstanding figures in Central's starring line-up for 1928. CLARENCE HSLICKH PALMER, Guard Vifeight One Hundred and Fifty Pounds One-Year Letterman Hard Work brings its own reward and that is what Palmer has enjoyed. Nothing but this best effort for his team has been acceptable to Slick. Work and hard work has been his motto since he has been numbered in Central's guard line. Central regrets that graduation will take Palmer from her. ROBERT "SIGNALS" BUMPUS, Center Weight One Hundred and Fifty-Three Pounds One-Year Letterman When Bumpus received his letter the student body re- joiced with him and felt that again spirit and effort had been rewarded. For four years he has come out faithfully and although he didn't play as much as some of the others, he was always there ready for serv- ice. He deserves his share of the credit for Central's victories. Next year Bumpus is expected to step into the limelight. IO5 ,ik M THE 1928 g - .iff CHAMPION A P1 W. B. "ScRAPP1NG" GARRET, Guard Weight One Hundred and Fifty-Five Pound One-Year Letterman Size is not the only thing that counts in the case of a guard. Although Garret is one of the smallest men on the team he is at the same' time one that everybody knows is on the firing line ready to hold his place and fight. With such bright prospects and unusual de- velopment in football playing Garret will strfke the team a heavy blow by his absence next year. J. L. "JAK1E" LAMB, End Vveight One Hundred and Forty Pounds When letters were given out, "Another one well de- served" was the remark made concerning Lamb. He has been a faithful, hard worker, always out for prac- tice, always there to do his bit. With such promise as he has for a football career it is with sincere regret that Central gives him up this year.

BRADFORD Central, for two years in succession, has won the City Prep Championship in football. TWO beautiful silver footballs, now on display in the oHice, bear testimony of the superiority of these teams. In winning this year's championship, Central defeated Notre Dame, 6 to Og Baylor, 7 to 65 City, 7 to O. For Central this has been a very successful season, with seven victories, one tie, and two defeats. 107 -1 HE 1928 S - fig CHAMPION W k j 5 Basketball Men FRANK BRADFORD, Forward Windy is just as swift on the basketball court as his name indicates. His good work with the team for a second year is one reason for its continuous improve- ment. He has a sure eye for the basket. When he aims, cheers begin almost immedfately, for it is a dead certainty that the ball is going in. HOMER KEY, Forward Key is one of Central's best all-round athletes. Of his star playing in football much has been said, but that is not all, for in basketball he has proved himself equally as good. He is quick and sureg he never misses a shot. Central expects "Satchel" to do hfs part in raising her points above that of any previous year. EUGENE MAYER, Guard t'Skeet" is another star brought over from last year. He has the size and height together with many other de- sirable traits which go to make up the all-round ath- lete. In his position he plays well and ruins many shots for the opponents. CARL HAMMOND, Guard With three years of experience on Central's team Carl plays like a veteran. t'Mutt," the center of Central's pass work can send the ball -in any direction at any time. His self-possessed, cool-headed playing has meant much to his team. Others may be rattled but he always keeps that same calmness that has character- ized his playing through many a game. CAPTAIN HOWARD HAMMOND, Center With three years of rich experience Didley has not only borne well his responsibility of steading his team of 1928, but also has played the best basketball of his cage career. He is one of the most outstanding bas- ketball players that Central has ever produced. His passing is skillful and effective and at goal shooting he is a star. When Central has the ball and when it is in Didley's possession there is no fear for the Cen- tralite. 108 5, 247s r THE 1923 X. rf? CHAMPION Q KIVQ Basketball Men HAROLD REICHARD, Forward "Heimie" is small but fast and moves around on the court in a pleasing way. His splendid skill at passing has fooled many an opponent. He is alert and sure which are two valuable characteristics in a basketball player. GEORGE MCCARTY, Guard George is one of the hardest fighting men on the team. He never knows the meaning of 'tquit." His close, careful guarding has been a big factor in holding the opponents' score down. The team counts heavily on his support. FRED SHEERER, Center Although this is Fred's first attempt on Central's team he has made good from the very beginning. He is one of the surest point makers among the cagers. From the way he hits the basket no one would ever judge him to be anything but a professional. DONALD JONES, Guard "Fatty" means business and fights with might and main when he gets on the Hoor. Although this is his first year on the team his playing is like that of an experi- enced man of long standing. His is one of the men who adds promise to Central's prospects for the season. PAUL SELLS, Guard Paul is another athlete who turns naturally from the gridiron to the cage when the season dictates. He has some advantage over the low man for he towers so far above him. He is another "Olson" when it comes to passing the ball. His shot at the goal is almost a sure point for his side. 109 ' - ff 4... I' E CHAMPION T H 1 9 2 s "Q, .IZ , Q. 4. 2 Track The year 1927 was a successful one in track. Central won second place, defeating Baylor and City High for the first time in several years. First place was won by Eugene "Skeet'f Mayer, in the shot putg by Howard "Bus" Anderson in the javelin throw, and by Charles Jackson in the half mile race. Kermit Maxwell won second place in the mile race. Central expects him to take a step forward and win first place this year. George McCarty won recognition in the high jump. Searcy and Preston, ,27 graduates, were also outstanding men. The prospects for the team of 1928 are favorable. About twenty- five men are expected to go out. The team will take two tripsg one to Sewanee and the other to Knoxville for the State Tournament. In addi- tion to this they will take part in the Baylor relays. Efforts are being made to do away with the City Tournament this year and bring all the schools here that wish to compete in a Southern Tournament. It is expected that Central will carry off the honors at that meet. IIO r -. an E 'O CHAMPION X T H 19 2 8 . ' ' - ..,.,,. "- "' A E. 5' - . ' '- Baseb all The baseball fans of Chattanooga are looking forward with unusual enthusiasm to the I928 season among the prep schools. An investigation of Central's prospective team seems to indicate an extraordinarily successful season. Central will feel keenly the loss of three strong men of last year, Captafn Mclnturf, George Cade and Ed Brown, yet with the good support of so many letter men and the addition of Dear- ing, Buchanan, Horner, there is little reason for discouragement.

A I THE 1928 5. 772, CHAMPION The Public Speaking and Dramatic Work has proved to be a vital factor in the school life of Central. That the classes in this work have a desirable inlluence in the student body is shown by the number from these classes that stand foremost in the reading, declamatory and ora- torical contests, the plays, and the speakers chosen to rep- resent the school at various occasions in the city. All phases of work from extemporaneous speaking to the acting of the most classic drama are brought out in the class work and prepared for public recital. ' The technique of voice production, gesture, and stage is studied in a Way that is most enjoyable as well as most profitable. A IZI ' 'agp '-5 fn , - - , M " ,ml ' Lil ...- --4 THE 1928 x ii?

The Varsity Glee Club has had a very successful year, as has been partially shown in the number of programs that they have given both in school and out. These programs have incorporated music of many various styles and typos, and have furnished educational entertainment for their audiences on numerous occasions. Their major performance for the year was the operetta, "The Gypsy Rover," which proved to be a success in every sense of the worfl, 138 3' 'fi .. ...... - 'E 'THE 1928 Q 72 ,CHAMPION an . , .- ,,,.

They had the honor of performing before all the prominent clubs of the city, 1D the leading theatre, over the radio, and before many of the schools of the city. Central can be justly proud of an orchestra that has so honorably carried its name abroad, T39 -1 THE l9Z8 Q- 772, CHAMPION Operetta HE operetta, the Varsity Glee Club's annual presentationywas one of unusual merit and attractiveness. The performance was indeed a credit to amateurs and showed the marks of careful direction and persistent practice. f'The Gypsy Rover" was the title of the operetta. It was arranged in three acts and was built around the character of Rob, later known as Sir Gilbert Howe, of English nobility. Rob was stolen when an infant, by his nurse, Meg, who later became the wife of Marto, a gypsy. Rob grew to manhood among the gypsies, believing Meg and Marto to be his parents. One day, while riding with her fiancee, Lord Craven, Lady Constance Martendale became lost in the woods. They wandered to the gypsy camp where Constance and Rob met and fell in love at first sight. Later Rob went to the home of Constance and they planned to elope but were overheard by Craven who informed Sir George and plans were made to capture him. Rob was put in prison, but managed to soon escape. Two years elapsed and Rob had his identity and wealth revealed to him. Constance remained true to her love for Rob and on his return to England, he wooed and won her for his wife. The major leads were ably handled by Dorothy Perry and Eugene Welch, while the following gave equally creditable performances in the minor leads: Wilma Planzer, Ford Peters, jack Sherman, Wheelan Palmer, Roberta Bryant, Dorothy Martin, and Horace Meadors. The costuming, the stage settings and the dancing added greatly to the brilliance of the per- formance. The interpretation of the lines and both the ensemble and solo vocal work showed remarkable ingenuity and talent. Minstrel The 1927-28 minstrel of Central High School was presented on the evening of January twentieth with a cast of forty. Music was furnished by the R. O. T. C. band, and the usual large minstrel audience was present. The performance was presented in three parts. These were: First, the minstrel proper, second, an olio of four acts, and finally, a one-act play. In the first part, the traditional 'fcircle" was abandoned and the scene was laid at an old-time plantation store, with the proprietor acting as interlocutor. The blackfaces appeared as loafers, or store customers and a white quartet was present as a group of farmers 'fwhittlingn on the porch of the store. A girls chorus appeared intermittently as "Clementyne," granddaughter of the store-keeper and a few of her friends who had suddenly returned from school as a result of an unexpected holiday.. Twenty-three jokes or "stunts" together with two choruses, three solos, and one quartet were given in Part One. The "climax stunt" was a burlesque of a football player. The olio consisted of four acts. The first of these was a song and dance act, in which nine girls took part. The second act was a "black and white" dialogue. The third was a dance act, and the last a group of songs. For the play which concluded the performance, HThe Thirteen Club," by Harry L. Newton, was presented, in which all of the "blackfaces" appearing prior to this time took part. This con- cluded an unusually amusing and entertaining program of two hours and a half. 14.0 247 'Q 1 ilfraturr Svvrtinn -m E 'M CHAMPION x 1:5 T H 1 9 2 s .fan A Message of Alumni President In the memorable year of 1907 Central High School came into existence. The old Ridgedale grammar school building, at that time located at the corner of Peachtree Street and Bennett Avenue in Ridgedale, housed the first classes. On January 1, 1908, the present central building of the magnificent plant at Chamberlain and Dodds avenues was occupied. The Hrst graduating class was composed of a mere handful of young men and women. Since that time the list of graduates has grown larger and larger with each passing year. Hundreds of those to receive a diploma at Central have either completed or taken college Work: and today, out in the busy World, together with those who were not able to continue higher educational training, they are dlling places of usefulness and service. The alumni of Central are acquitting themselves in whatever place they are filling in life ln a manner that reflects credit on their Alma Mater. These men and women are not only fight- ing life's battles cleanly and honestly, but they are also forging ahead as leaders. Few, if any, have so conducted themselves as to bring any measure of discredit to the Purple and Gold institu- tion so dear to the hearts of all its students and gradu- ates. On the other hand, Central alumni by the hundreds -even thousands-are doing credit to themselves and Alma Mater. They are excelling in positions and profes- sions of great responsibility and trust. They are mount- ing the ladder of success as doctors, as lawyers, as spe- cialists, dentists, teachers, preachers, and as members of other professions and callings. In the business world, they are ably filling the most difficult and responsible places. Central girls of those early years, now to mature womanhood grown, are proving themselves ideal Wives 1 and mothers. They are gracing homes Where happiness and refinement reign. They are leaders in church and social life. The history of Central graduates is made brighter and more worth while when the records of the brave boys who volunteered for service during the Great War and Went across to do their bit toward making the world safe for civilization are taken into consideration. These lighting men acquitted themselves like the true Centralites that they were. Some of them sleep in Flanders iieldand other quiet cemeteries of the war dead "over there." So much for the accomplishments of Central alumni. This article would not be complete without a word of tribute to those fine men and women who have taught at Central. The high and noble ideals and purposes implanted by Central teachers have caused Central graduates to rise above the commonplace and mount to the heights of accom- plishment. Prof. S. E. Nelson, the present principal, is a man Whose very heart beats for Central and her advancement. He is ably supported by an excellent faculty, and has Worked wonders for the school. A visit to Centra1's halls fills a graduate of the early years with a strange feeling. The old Purple and Gold spirit comes surging back with renewed force. Memories tug at the heart strings. The eyes become misty as scenes of by-gone days pass in review. The surroundings have changed tremendously. In those early days there was but the central building. It accommodatd the student body and there was room to spare. Now, since it has proved sadly inadequate, handsome north and south wings help to take care of the vigorous young army of more than 1,500 students. There are the modern auditorium, the popular cafeteria, the well-equipped bank, and numerous other depart- ments that were not in existence in 1907 and later terms. Central, with proper support and backing from the county court and the school authorities, is but on the threshold of a sun-kissed future. The institution today ranks as one of the best in the accredited high school list. There it no limit to its possibilities. Through the Central Alumni Association, two medals are now being given for the best all round graduate among the boys and girls. Members of the association are giving their support to the school in its undertakings. They are vitally interested in its growth and development. With the support of its membership, the alumni association can do great things for the school-things greater than the dreamer has yet dreamed of or that the thinker has thought of. Central may know that the alumni are with her, they are watching her success and rejoicing in it, and prophesying for her a complete fulfillment of the high hopes that they have placed in her.
