THE NINETEEN HUNDRED AND FORTY 10 1 k H I AN Published by The Students ' Association of Piedmont College Demorest, Georgia i) i; ii i r i t i ii i The students of Piedmont College, representing only a small group of his many friends, treasure his sineere devotion, cherish his wholehearted cooperativeness, admire his colorful versatility, praise his self-sacrificing goodness, and delight in his unrestricted friendliness; therefore, we dedicate this YONAHIAN of 1940 to PROFESSOR A. R. VAN CLEAVE. ft ft I F (I It K W I) I! I) Here ' s your 1940 YONAHIAN. In it are reproductions of familiar scenes and faces which identify Piedmont College; in it are repre- sented feelings and attitudes which also identify Piedmont. In compil- ing this annual, the Staff has kept in mind these factors and has striven to produce a constant reminder of the activities and spirit which were a part of Piedmont in 1939-40.

But the 1940 season was certainly not without its thrills — remember our 26-25 defeat by Young Harris, our 49-42 defeat by Monroe Aggies, and those exciting first halves of nearly every home game. The wholehearted support offered by the student body to the team indicates that the team did have something to offer. Mahew Rizer, Bobby Lokey, John Huff and Glenn Williams were members of the team, and played in several games. However, they were unable to stay with the squad throughout the entire season. Mention should be made of Tom Brabson, John Stam- baugh, Edmond Garrison, King Sherrer, Albert Berry, and others who were valuable as substitutes and who prepared themselves for successful participation next year. t h e Yonahian 1940 64 RIDKN — Tom has for tour years been a prom- inent figure in Piedmont basketball. This year he was second only to Thompson, both in the number of points scored and the number of quarters in which he played. He scored 92 points in 77 quarters. Tom was also verj valuable to the team as a leader and co-captain. Tom Riiif.x JORDAN — Dan made himself essential to our team by his fast breaking, hard playing, and by his ability to shoot goals, especially by taking a ball from the back board. Credit should be given Dan as one of the members who held the team together. PURCELL — Ainsworth was a dangerous man un- der the goal, and was always in the middle of the play- ing. FRICKS — " Benny " reached his height against N. G. C. on the Dahlonega court, ami always played a hard game, being especially good on defense. Duel Thompson THOMPSON— Duel has been one of the very best guards in the history of Piedmont. He led his team in number of points scored and also in the number of quarters in which he played. He shot 151 points during the season and played in 84 out of 92 quarters. The manner in which Duel can handle the ball, break toward the goal, and his spectacular shots made him a favorite with the Piedmont supporters. Jordan PURCELL Fricks Tmi BERT W ATKINS Bishop Moseley Brown BOYS ' n.iskmuii TOLBERT — Frank, starting off as a green freshman, has unquestionably improved more during the season than any other member of the team. W ATKINS — " Little Joe, " by the appearance of his hair, made the Hiawassee supporters laugh until they saw his accurate shots, and felt the consequences of his close guarding. BISHOP — Conrad was a good guard and, aided by his favored left hand, was an important factor in the team ' s passwork and deception. MOSELEY — Nick was a good defensive guard and was especially good on making his long shots loop through the net. BROWN — ■Enoch, though his basketball playing was interrupted by boxing, made himself valu- able to the team, especially by his successful technique of shooting goals. Piedmonl vs. North Georgia College the yon ah an 1940 Piedmont vs. Rabun Gap College 66 Jackson accredited herself well, and named as guard and Mary players of the tournament. GIRLS ' BASKETBALL The Piedmont girls ' sextet was one of the most formidable in North Georgia. Before the onslaught of their sharpshooters bowed Habersham, Rabun Gap, Reinhardt College teams, Monroe A. and M., and various high school teams. The only college teams able to defeat our girls were Young Harris and Hiawassee. On a three-game trip to South Georgia our girls met three of the strongest teams in that section — South Georgia, Middle Georgia, and Norman Park — and emerged with their record unscathed. Then our girls went to a basketball tournament in Piedmont, Alabama. Tin ' s sea- son ' s record was not so impressive that they plunged into this tourna- ment to win. The Piedmont team won its first game, but in their second fray they lost a real thriller by a two-point margin to the team that won the finals of the tournament b a 14-point margin. So Piedmont to her further credit Ruby Brooks was Jackson as forward for the 12 all-star JACKSON — Mary was a freshman, but was one of the best for- wards Piedmont has had. When near the goal she was a er accurate shot. Alary was the high scorer on the girls ' team, scoring 175 points during the season, and was co-captain of the team. BROOKS — Ruby was equally good as guard or forward, but, play- ing most of the season as guard, she was one of the most consistent players Piedmont has had. Ruby was co-captain and played in more quarters than any other member of the team. Brooks 67 Jordan A I (HIKE Ellison Ritchie URLS ' BISKETKILL JORDAN — Edna was one of our most consistent players. She played most of the season as guard, yet played forward long enough to score 123 points and to be second only to Jackson in this respect. MOORE — Carolyn was especially good on offense, and was one of our most valuable sharp- shooters. ELLISON — Frances was expert in the manner of handling the ball and her long shots were good enough for two points nearly every time. RITCHIE — Ruth was an outstanding guard, and made herself essential to the team by her depend- able playing. POOLE — Edna, as guard or forward, was always in the middle of the playing, and fighting for Piedmont. WILBANKS — Hazel, though a freshman, was a very consistent guard and made herself impor- tant in the first line of reserves through her defensive ability. Mention should be made of Dorothean Tyner, June Welden, and Emily George, who served as capable substitutes and cause us to look with optimism on the 1941 season. POOLE Wll.i: x KS t h e Yonahian 1940 Piedmont vs. Hiawassee College 68 off to iiu: iiiiuiK i;miu;n After several weeks of intensive training, denying themselves desserts, chopping wood, and going to bed early, Dynamite McFarlin, Cyclone Brown, and Trainer Bruiser Bishop left Demorest for the Golden Gloves Boxing Tournament in Atlanta, February 12, accom- panied by Coach A. R. Van Cleave and Dr. Bailey M. Wade. McFarlin lost his first bout on a questionable decision to a Golden Gloves veteran who had been champion in his weight division four out of five times. Brown lost a hard fight. Bishop won his bout, but received an injury that made it advisable for him to withdraw before his next fight. We are looking forward to a more exten- sive boxing program next year. Bishop Brown M Farlin Go i! i s i; i; 1 1, i, St in i Pitcher Riden Infielder J. Watkins Catcher Pittman Outfielder LOKEY Pitcher, Infieldcr This year, for the first time in four years, Piedmont went in for baseball as a regular part of her intercollegiate schedule. The team was made more impressive by the pur- chase of such amounts of equipment, including new uniforms, as had not been known at Piedmont for a number of years. At the beginning of the season it was apparent that our material was almost totally green ; only a few of the boys had had any experience in college baseball. Riden was the most experienced candidate, while Williams, Lokey, Jordan, Pittman, Rizer, and Hood were not totally inexperienced. However, after a few weeks of practice and a number of shifts in the line-up, a promising team began to develop.
