HEN Time with corroding finger
Has wrought on memory's page,
When associations no longer linger,
But new scenes and faces you engage,
Indulge in sweet reflection,
Feel the thrill of recollection.
From the realm of memory's lfingclom
Woo them gently one by oneg
Scenes of sweet association,
Hallowed days of worlf and fung
Forget not study clay and night,
lnterspersecl with pure clelight.
ln this treasure chest so precious
From the dim and misty past,
May you meet again in memory
Central mates and friends so fastg
If you find that this is true,
We have done what we would do.

wcentral Is Twenty-one and Is
N VIEVV of the magnificent structure of the present Central High School, it is hard
to realize that it was only twenty-one years ago that Central High School had its
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
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."

much decoration in colors and
leaves for Season's Party. Being
presented with autograph album at
door did work hard to get names.

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
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
Neely would make a man split him-
self with laughing to hear him tell
Curtis, Miss Ben Addie Coleman, his
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.

THE 1928 g- ,722 CHAMPION
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
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."

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
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
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.

fffontinued from Page 65j
Our noble captain, Frank Bradford, took the helm with Howard Hammond, Howard Smith and
john Seagle as Hrst mates. 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
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
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.

THE 1928 g if? CHAMPION
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.

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.

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.

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
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.

CAPT. 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
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.

THE 1928 Qi 7,22 CHAMPION
EDWARD "EGGHEAD" PETERSON, Quarterback
Weight One Hundred and Twenty-Five Pounds
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
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
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
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

HE Qr aiifl CHAMPION
JOHN "JAR-HEAD" WALLER
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
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
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.
THE 1928 .Xt Je, CHAMPION

OT1s "Bro MOUTH" LEE, End
Weight One Hundred and Fifty-Nine Pounds
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
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
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
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

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
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
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
PAUL "TAcKHEAD" SELLS, End
Weight One Hundred and Forty-Two Pounds
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
'J ' .-
THE 1928 gt iQ CHAMPION
HOWARD "DIDLEY" HAMMOND, End
Weight One Hundred and Fifty Pounds
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
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
CLARENCE HSLICKH PALMER, Guard
Vifeight One Hundred and Fifty Pounds
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
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 1928 g - .iff CHAMPION
W. B. "ScRAPP1NG" GARRET, Guard
Weight One Hundred and Fifty-Five Pound
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.

CAPT. H. UNDERWOOD
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.
HE 1928 S - fig CHAMPION
W k j 5
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-
THE 1923 X. rf? CHAMPION
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
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
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.

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

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.

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 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,

The orchestra at Central this year boasted a wide-spread and well-deserved popularity
Their numerous out-of-school engagements proved effective incentives for earnest and profitable
work. 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,
THE l9Z8 Q- 772, CHAMPION
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.
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.

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
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
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.
ERNEST G. TAYLOR, President of Alumni Association.
