History of Senior Class
N account of the insistent demand of the Business Manager of the Campus
it has become necessary that a final history of the class of 1 9 1 3 be written.
On the evening before we have watched the countless rays of light dispell
the gloom of early dawn, we have seen a solid mass of glorious brilliance
sink behind the western horizon. So must the history of the class of 13 sink behind the
horizon in reality, 'ere morning breaks forth showing the light each individual beam shall
cast. We would not portray a sunset as a Remington with a not of brilliant colors. It
is rather the subdued and intermingling effect of forty five combined that we would sketch
We shall pursue the usual resume of achievement before giving what we consider
' 1 3 most notable victory.
In athletics we started by winning the first pennant we tried for, a feat seldom ac¬
complished. In this branch our class has the honor of winning more pennants than any of
the eight classes we have opposed in our career. At least one has been awarded us in
all the five departments of athletics. Perryman since joining our class, has led the Virginia
league and will report to the New York giants after graduation. We have had the
unprecedented honor of having our entire basketball team of Carlton, Lasseter, Blake,
Perryman and Fraser chosen as the All-Emory team, and Shaver made the highest average
in Gym. exam ever recorded at Emory.
In scholarship we have upheld our standard. We will graduate at least one magna
cum laude and a coterie of cum laude men.
In literary work we have been well represented. When Sophomore we were rep¬
resented on Champion Debate. When Junior three of six Champion Debaters were of
' I 3, while as Senior five of our number will represent us in June. When Juniors we
shared equal with the honors in Intercollegiate Debate, while this year both men against
Emory and Henry are Seniors.
Our esthetic development has not been neglected. We will soon be represented in
Grand Opera by Antonio Scotti and Dr. Tiny Brain Magath, while Foote and Cherry
have produced masterpieces in the realm of art and poetry.
One of the most pleasant memories of our course at Emory will be that of the
Senior Banquet on the night of February 8th, at the New Kimball, in Atlanta. The
occasion was made a most pleasant one by the presence of Dr. James E. Dickey, and
our coaches, Prof. James P. Hanner, Jr., and Dr. E. K. Turner.
The most brilliant diadem in our crown of achievement was set by the King with
a halo of welcome, when in Senior Bible he praised the loyalty of the class of '13 to
