Spring has come! Winter has
disappeared by a gentle stroke of the Divine Hand, and the most delightful
season of the year is at hand. Blossoms appear on the trees,
foretelling the appearance of abundant fruit. Buds are appearing and
the bare trees are beginning to put on their summer coat of green. A
new spirit fills the soul of all and we forget our petty troubles, and
rejoice with all nature that it is spring! "The young man's fancy
lightly turns", and there is a feeling of friendship and tolerance among
all people. In all this beauty of nature we wonder that any crimes
could be committed or wrongs be done.
As the Easter season approaches we remember that it was
in that spring of long-ago when came the Resurrection from Death.
Everything had seemed so utterly forsaken and gloomy in the hearts of men,
and then came the glorious awakening and the rejoicing of hearts which had
been sad. It awakened the world as spring does--to an assurance of
As that spring so many centuries ago had its awakening,
let this one have its own. Let us consider ourselves what we really
are--the handiwork of God. We are here on earth not merely to exist
and enjoy life's pleasures, but to have a firm purpose in life and live
in the real sense of the word.
The Giver of the Spring-time has given us also the human
mind, which is the "temple of the Almighty," and it should be treated as
such. Let there be in our hearts an awakening! May we not take
as an example the One who "increased in wisdom and stature and in favor
with God and Man?"
"WHAT TIME IS IT?"
We need an electrical clock in
our school. All modern...
....schools have a central clock with a bell in each room
to ring at the exact minute a period is over, and then after a lapse of a
certain time, perhaps two minutes, for the pupils to pass to the next
class, the bell rings again. The pupils appearing at class after
this final bell will not be allowed to remain, but will be sent somewhere
with no mark for that day. No classes should be held after the
ringing of the bell which ends the period. This would systematize
our work and give an equal amount of time to every period. Glynn
Academy needs an electrical clock.
At the beginning of the year work
was begun on a basketball court at the right of the high school building.
It wasn't finished, however and now the basketball season is over.
It is a fine place to build a tennis court and a good one could be made in
short order by some well directed and willing workers.
Shall we get to work on it?
Students! Patronize our
advertisers. These firms have been interested enough to co-operate
with us and it is your duty to give them your patronage. When you
need school supplies, clothing, or anything else let "CUMTUX" be your
guide to up-to-date merchants.
If a little indifference were
overcome on the part of some of the boys, we might have a splendid track
team. There is a great deal of ability among the boys in Glynn
Academy which should be developed. Let us be ambitious for our
school as well as for ourselves and enter enthusiastically into training
for the track team.
Since our last issue we have had
several interesting assemblies.
On Washington's Birthday we had an address by our
popular principal, Mr. Eadie. In his talk Mr. Eadie
did not dwell so much on the well-known public services of the "Father of
Our Country," but brought out in a most interesting manner the principles
which actuated Washington as a man in every service rendered. When
he had finished we had seen Washington, not as a hero on a pedestal, but
as a real human being beset by difficulties on every hand, and maintaining
those standards so necessary for the best citizenship in our great
Mr. Eadie does not have time to visit the upper
assembly very often, but we always enjoy his talks, and he never fails to
give us something worth while.---EDITOR
On March tenth, we had the
pleasure of listening to an interesting talk on the history of Brunswick,
and especially Glynn Academy, by Mr. A.V. Wood, President of the
Board of Education. He told us very interesting facts concerning the
founding of the public schools of Glynn County and Brunswick, tracing
their development from the first land grant in the latter part of the
Eighteenth century to the proposed memorial building to be erected in the
He also gave us an interesting account of the make-up
and activities of our Board of Education. Having been president of
that organization for twenty-three years, Mr. Wood was able to
present it in a most interesting manner.
We enjoy these visits of Mr. Wood and would
...welcome other members of our board or interested
patrons to our morning assemblies.
--CORNELIA LEAVY '22
On Thursday, March twenty-third,
the assembly period was filled with a short concert by the High School
Orchestra. We had heard announcements of orchestra practice
regularly, but were beginning to despair of ever having the privilege of
hearing the results of that practice. The following numbers were
rendered and thoroughly enjoyed by the assembly: "Melody in
F"--Rubenstein; "Sweetheart of Sigma Chi," and "Tuck Me to Sleep in
My Old 'Tucky Home."---EDITOR.
THE BOX PARTY.
As usual the "Red Terrors" have
been the recipients of most of the social courtesies extended this
past month. In fact, the rest of us were beginning to be quite
envious of them.
One would think after having been "honored guests" at
so many functions, they would become seasoned "belles"; but not so--no
blushing debutante could be more modest than our famous "Terrors".
On their return from the hard-earned victory with
Waycross Hi-Y, Mr. Wood, manager of The Grand, tendered them a box
party, for the athletic picture, "Two Minutes to Go", featuring the
popular Charles Ray. But when our modest heroes pictured
themselves in the "limelight" in the presence of the crowd they almost
refused to go.
But it would never do to slight so generous and
courteous an invitation, so the ever resourceful "Pop" Highsmith
announced that the members of the team with the three substitutes would
meet at Berrie's at 8:00 o'clock. Upon assembling, each hero
was instructed to depart in search of his "best girl friend" to help bear
"the blushing honors thick upon him."
The party was assembled about eight-thirty, and with
brave front proceeded to enter the portals of "The Grand". Led by
Alton and "Weezie" with blushing, downcast faces, the group
chaperoned by "Pop" Highsmith made their way to the box reserved
for them. Before the sheltering arms of that haven of refuge could
be reached by the shy basketeers, to their utter consternation and
...all lights blazed on and the party was greeted with the
vociferous applause of the assembled spectators. A scramble for
seats, and sighs of relief were heard as the lights were turned off and
the picture started.
It was a thrilling picture, and the scrimmage on the
screen brought vivid memories to the basketball squad of a tied score and
two minutes to play.
The party included Misses Eloise Leybourne, Cornelia
Leavy, Helen Busk, Laura and Mary Gignilliat, Sybil Bourne, Peggy
Burns, Eleanor Missildine, and Messrs. Gene Gignilliat, Alton
Burns, Henry Beach, Doles Wilchar, Frank Vogel, Lee Krauss, Wayne Jones,
Albert Smith, and "Pop" Highsmith.

Our generous host had been very thoughtful, and we
found several baskets of refreshments hidden in the truck.
The long, well-lighted draw bridge near the pavilion at
Darien proved to be the destination of the party, and became the center of
attraction. There refreshments were served and everyone enjoyed
themselves to the fullest extent.
The members of the team extend their heartiest thanks
to Mr. Van Dyke, for this generous attention.

THE SAINT PATRICK'S PARTY
One of the most enjoyable parties
of the year was the Saint Patrick's party at the Y.W.C.A. Hall, Friday
evening, March 17th. At eight o'clock, gay young girls, members of
the Girl Reserves could be seen going to the Y.W.C.A. Hall. Each one
wore something green, the Saint Patrick's color.
Contests were held and games in which "Pat" was
predominant were played. All Girl Reserves became Irish for...
...one night at least! When one of the girls, seated
at the piano began playing "The Wearin' o' the Green" everyone sang
lustily. Several other songs were sung during the evening.
During an intermission a dainty salad course was served
by members of the Social Committee of the Girl Reserves. After the
refreshments had been served, a number of the girls gathered in the
kitchen, washed and dried the dishes, remembering Saint Patrick in their
songs all the while. Miss Tait and Miss Padrick were
--ANNE SMITH, '24
The senior corps of the Girl
Reserves is composed of girls from the ninth, tenth, and eleventh, grades
of Glynn Academy. The Girl Reserves organization is a part of the
Y.W.C.A. which deals directly with girls in the grammar or high school and
those of school age. The purpose of the organization is "To find and
give the best." The Girl Reserve slogan is "To face life squarely."
Before Christmas the members of the corps dressed
eighteen dolls and had a Christmas tree for some of the poorest children
of the city, who would not otherwise have had dolls, toys and a bit of the
Christmas spirit. The Social Service Committee is giving also a
series of discussions on "The Insignia of a Lady." The first
discussion of the series was "With Her Friends" and it was led by Miss
Padrick. The second discussion "In Her Home", was led by
Sybil Bourne. The last two subjects of the series are "In Her
Church" and "In The World."
The Membership Committee has presented a vocational
play, "The Hall With Doors." This showed how many different
occupations are open to women today.
The Social Committee has given the club many pleasant
outings during the year. Five or six hikes have been enjoyed, as
well as a Peanut Party, and a Saint Patrick's Party.
The officers of the club for the ensuing year are:
President, Maud Riggsbee; Vice-President, Elsbeth Buck,
...Ethel Davis; Treasurer, Lillian Gordon.
The advisors are: Misses Tait, Tyson, Miller and Padrick.
The Girl Reserves strive to live according to their
purpose, their slogan, and their code, which is:
"As a Girl Reserve, I will be:
"Gracious in manner--
"Reaching towards the best--
Earnest in purpose."
"Seeing the beautiful--
Eager for knowledge--
Reverent to God--
Victorious over self--
Sincere at all times."
--ETHEL DAVIS, '23
SPRING IS HERE!
Not because "the swallows told us
so", but by the blossoming out of the senior domestic science girls in
their new frocks. They showed the height of fashion and quite a
talent as modistes. The other girls of the class were quite envious
of the pretty spring costumes.
And oh, the savory odors that assail our olfactory
nerves when we pass the kitchen on laboratory days! The senior girls
are specializing in salads and desserts, while the juniors are serving
substantial and palatable meals. Perhaps some day we will be invited
to taste some of these delectable dishes. Here's hoping!
There seems to have been quite a
good deal of illness in our midst this past month.
The absence of Miss McBryde on Thursday and Friday,
March ninth and tenth, was a source of much regret among the pupils in her
classes, who welcomed her back on Monday following.
Mr. Adams was absent from his duties a week on
account of an operation for tonsilitis [sic], but is back at his post again.
Mr. Highsmith was absent one day, but even
illness could not detain him longer from his beloved "Terrors."
It is especially hard on the Seniors to be absent just
now, but Jacob Wengrow had the bad luck to be detained at home an
entire week on account of illness in the home. Also Elizabeth
Harris, Jewell Mitchell, Alice Kenner and Mary Parker of
the Senior class have had the misfortune to be absent on account of
Report cards last week!
Carried home with joy or sorrow--according to the tale they tell.
And what tell-tales they are!
Too bad the track team fizzled
out so dismally! Does that mean that Glynn High is losing the school
spirit we thought so well-developed by our basketball squad? Let us
hope not. Surely we are not "slackers" and "quitters."
Watch our advertisers, students!
Be loyal to those who are loyal to us!
We are sorry to note that Miss
Miller was unable to meet her classes one day last week on account of
illness. Mrs. Eadie substituted for her.
Tests! The bete noir
of the average student, we have with us again. How quickly do they
roll 'round--and with what fear and trembling do we meet them. But
when the paper returns with "E"--"V.G." or even the humble "G" in one
corner, we start on the next lap with renewed courage; but it is perhaps
only human that we dislike them.
The Senior English class enjoyed
a visit from Mr. A.V. Wood recently. In his talk to the class
he brought to our minds the fact that we are nearing the close of our last
happy year at Glynn Academy. There is a peculiar mingling of sadness
and gladness when we realize the nearing of our graduating night.
We are all glad to welcome the
return of Margaret Ballard after two weeks absence on account of a
painful accident. Tho she is dependent upon a cane, we hope to see
her entirely recovered in the near future.
Rev. F.D. Thomas, pastor
of the First Presbyterian Church, and Dr. Hudson, a returned
missionary from China, visited our assembly one morning recently.
Dr. Hudson led our devotional exercises and told us some very
interesting things about China.
Misses Tyson, Miller, Eloise
Leybourne, Cornelia Leavy, May Smith, Kenneth Bell, and Ed Bruce,
were among the Brunswickians who witnessed the Hi-Y game at Waycross.
A pleasant party composed of
Mr. and Mrs. A.M. Smith, Misses Tyson and Miller
and May Smith witnessed the Brunswick-Reidsville game.
Among the Glynn Academy fans at
the Brunswick-Benedictine game were, Cornelia Leavy, Annie Smith, Daisy
Lazarus, Helen Lissner, Tillie Borchardt, Elizabeth Harris, Alfred Wood,
Kenneth Bell, Ralph Smith, Mr. Eadie and Mr. Morris.
The Ninth Grade is planning a
party for some Friday evening in the near future.
While unstinted praise has met
the victorious basketball team on all sides, we think it only fair that
the faithful "fans" should have their full share of credit. Not only
have they been faithful at the home games, but have accompanied the team
on their trips and in no small measure assisted in carrying home the
victorious score. At all of the games played in Savannah, especially
those with the Benedictines and Reidsville, it looked as if a greater part
of Brunswick had moved to Savannah, so royal was the attendance of
Brunswick fans. There is no doubt that the enthusiastic support from
the side lines causes a stubborn determination in the minds of the players
not to disappoint their royal friends who are supporting them.
On March 4th, the "Red Terrors" journeyed to
Waycross to lock horns with the reputed Hi-Y basketeers of that city.
Realizing the comparative strength of their opponents, the locals did not
lose anytime in getting away to an early start. Vogel to
Burns to Beach, or the dependable "Number Four Signal" cast a
look of gloom over the countenances of the Waycross fans. When the
whistle blew for the end of the first half, Brunswick had got away to the
commanding lead of 14-9.
It was during the next half that many cases of heart
failure developed. By stubborn fighting the Hi-Y basketeers brought
their score within striking distance of our count. With forty
seconds to go, and the "Red Terrors" leading by the small margin of 19-18,
Campbell, Hi-Y forward, registered a field goal, which brought
gloom to the hearts and tears to the eyes of the Brunswick substitutes,
and the many rooters from our city who accompanied the team. The
Waycross rooters went wild, and with visions and hopes of a well earned
victory by a one point margin, they literally took off the roof of the
auditorium with their shrills and yells. However, their visions and
hopes were soon shattered; the plucky determination of the local cagesters
would not die, that "Never-Give-Up" spirit, and within ten seconds of the
time limit, a field goal was made making the count 21-20. Imagine
the overabundance of joy and happiness in the Brunswick colony, when, five
seconds later, the whistle blew for the end of the game, with Brunswick on
the long end of the sensational score of 21-20.
On March 17, the "Red Terrors" basketball team
were guests at the weekly luncheon of the Young Men's Club. Always
anxious to be near their supporters, and incidently [sic] a well-prepared
luncheon, the boys did not lose any time in accepting the invitation.
On their arrival at the designated "Palace of Pleasures" they were
confronted by a large gathering of splendid young men, and a most
appetizing meal. It was then and during the next thirty minutes that
the hosts were entirely forgotten by these guests. As such honors
are not so very frequent, the members of the team enjoyed themselves to
Mr. Fred Warde, a most enthusiastic booster and
financial supporter of the Red Terrors, then presented to the team a check
for $50.00 donated by the citizens of Brunswick. On behalf of the
squad, Alton Burns, Business Manager, made a speech of
appreciation. Mr. Highsmith then introduced the squad to the
club, and after a pleasing program, the meeting was adjourned.
The "Red Terrors" are hoping that some day soon they
will be able to repay the kindness of the Young Men's Club. If there
is anything we can possibly do for them, it is our wish that they let us
know, and we will do it with enthusiasm, and to the best of our ability.
Another much appreciated courtesy was the banquet
tendered the squad March 21 by Mr. Jack Gardner, proprietor of the
Royal. In anticipation of the "spread" the boys took in all kinds of
strenuous exercise during the afternoon in order to do ample justice to
the feast. However, "actions speak louder than words" and the quick
work through the many courses served to demonstrate to Mr. Gardner
that he knew the way to a boy's heart. We are sorry to report that
one of our member was actually unable too [sic] report at school the
After speeches by Mr. Warde, Mr. Gardner,
Coach Highsmith, and different members of the team, the "gang"
departed for the Bijou Theatre, fully satisfied that if you want a good
meal journey to "Jack's Place."
Now that signs of spring are
apparent everywhere, let us turn our minds to the national pastime,
baseball. Enthusiasm is running high among the many lovers of this
sport who are enrolled in Glynn Academy. From now on the sound of
the bat will be heard among the many candidates...
...who are working hard to cinch a berth on the team.
Although there are many places that will have to be developed, Coach
Highsmith is very confident that he can fill them with ease.
There are many to choose from and Glynn Academy will be represented by the
best calibre. Games are being arranged with out-of-town teams, and
the indications are that Glynn Academy will meet with a most successful
season in baseball.
THE GLYNN ACADEMY-REIDSVILLE GAME.
BY FREDERICK MACGREGOR, '23.
The "Red Terror" team of Glynn
Academy brought the basketball season to a successful close by clinching
their claim to the championship of South Georgia when the defeated the
fast five from Reidsville in Savannah by a score of 39 to37. From
the time Referee Buckley blew the starting whistle it was evident
that the two teams were well matched. The spectators were massed
around the court. Reidsville on one side and the Brunswick
supporters on the other. It seems strange that Reidsville could have
gotten such a crowd of supporters from a population of only 452, but it is
probably that a large number of Reidsville rooters were Savannahians.
There was such rooting from both sides that a continual din was kept up
and even "Pesky" Hodges could not be heard above the uproar.
From the very start it was a nerve-racking ordeal for supporters of both
sides. When the husky "Purple Scorpions" took the lead, the
Reidsville crowd went wild and those from Brunswick felt somewhat anxious;
but not long. The "Red Terrors" began to climb, and when the
time-keeper's pistol ended the first half, the score stood 24-23 in Glynn
From the sound of the referee's whistle at the
beginning of the second half, the spectators were kept forward in their
seats because the score was first tied by one side only to be broken, then
tied by the other, and so on throughout the entire time. Neither
side could take the lead of more than two or three points, and when the
time-keeper's pistol brought the second half to a close on the tie of
33-33 the crowd went wild. Referee Buckley ordered...
...an additional five minutes of play. During this
time one hardly dared breathe. Brunswick shot the first goal, but
Reidsville retaliated with a pretty shot; Brunswick shot again, and again
the Reidsville team tied the score. Brunswick shot again and the
game ended there with the score 39-37 in favor of the "Red Terrors".
At the sound of the time-keeper's pistol many rushed down to the court to
congratulate the victors, while others dropped into their seats utterly
exhausted from the forty-five minutes of nip-and-tuck play.
Naturally the Brunswick supporters were highly elated and proud of their
team that had played fourteen games and yet undefeated, while those from
Reidsville, and the Savannahians who rooted for them, were bitterly
The star of the Reidsville team was Jerry Alexander.
He played a fine game backed by the rest of his team. He scored 33
of Reidsville's points. The honors of the "Red Terrors" would be
hard to divide because they all played a fast game and worked together.
Alton Burns led in shooting, ringing seven field goals and seven
fouls, a total of 21 points. Gignilliat came next with the
total of 10 points to his credit. Beach was next in line with
8 points. Vogel played a fast and steady game and was in
important factor in the victory. Wilchar was put out on
personal fouls in the first few minutes of play by the Reidsville umpire
who had an unusually keen eye for personal fouls on an important man.
Lee Krauss substituted for him and played a heads-up game against
the husky 'Purple Scorpion" forward J. Alexander. Much of the
evening's glory belongs to him. The box score was:
|Burns, rf. 
|Beach, lf. 
||J. Alexander, lf 
||Southwell, c. 
|Gignilliat, rg.

LIFE AT THE G.A.B.
The G.A.B., as the
Georgia-Alabama Business College is affectionately and familiarly called,
is a live, wide-awake business college, with a Bookkeeping, Shorthand and
Typewriting, and a Printing Department.
The Bookkeeping Department on the third floor, is one of the
leading departments. The same set of books are used at Glynn
Academy, but there are more sets to be completed before the diploma is
The typewriting department contains about one hundred
typewriters, and is a large, well lighted hall on the second floor of the
building. Here students are being trained to be good typists and
stenographers for the business men of the South and the United States.
The third, and possibly most interesting department, is
the Printing Department. This department is in two divisions, the
Monotype training department, and the Linotype division.
The name "Monotype" was made by prefixing the word
"mono" meaning one, to the word "type." A monotype, then, is a
machine that casts a piece of type containing one letter or character at
time. Two separate machines are required in the Monotype Department.
One is the Keyboard; the other, the Caster. The Keyboard is so
arranged that when a key is pressed a paper ribbon is perforated with a
certain arrangement or grouping of holes. This...
...ribbon is then put
on the caster, and, when the machine is started, brings the molds for the
different characters into casting position. Hot metal is then
automatically forced into the mold, and the piece of type is cast.
In the G.A.B. there are about six Keyboards and the same number of
Let us turn to another department with which the writer
is more familiar.
There are about thirty Linotypes in the school.
The name Linotype tells the work of this machine at once. It casts a
"line of type" at a time, instead of a single letter as does the Monotype.
There are Linotypes of all models on the floor, as well as several
Intertypes, which are practically the same as Linotypes, but manufactured
by a different company. The average Linotype weighs about 2,600
pounds, so when they are once placed in one position on the floor, they
are generally left there. In spite of the great size of the machines
there are many delicate adjustments which, if they are changed ever so
slightly, will prevent the machine from running. Each Linotype
keyboard contains 90 keys, and the value of the operator is measured by
his speed on the machine.
Each student has five hours a day on a machine.
The rest of the day is given to lectures on mechanics, lectures on
printing, and grammar and spelling classes.
The combination of these three departments for the
production of badly needed help, makes this a very attractive school
indeed, and new students are enrolling every day.
--Peyton S. Fortson
Peyton was too modest to tell the fact that
he holds the speed record on the Linotype in his college.--EDITOR.
LIFE OF A FRESHMAN AT "UNIVERSITAS GEORGAE"
Whether one excells [sic] on the athletic fields, in the lecture rooms, or
on the ball-room floor you are sure to find ample opportunity to display
this talent at "old Georgia."
When the Freshman first arrives in Athens his education
is begun by the Sophomores, who endeavor to start him on the "straight and
narrow path." Soon however Sophs,,,
...begin to believe
that the time has come to let the Profs. try their hand on the new
arrival. Work starts in earnest and in a week at the most the
greenest Freshman has learned the ropes. They attend the lectures
and those who are to excell [sic] there soon show themselves.
In the meantime the Athletes have been spending all
their spare time hard at work on Sanford Field, and at last the first
football game arrives. 'Midst the shouts of thousands of spectators
the strains of "Glory, Glory, to Old Georgia" rise from the field as the
men in the "Red and Black" score the first touchdown of the season.
The score has been in Georgia's favor and that night comes the
celebration. This varies from simply ringing the chapel bell, to a
"night shirt parade" to Lucy Cobb, a "free" picture show, depending on the
importance of the game.
On the date of the Auburn game there comes the annual
migration to Columbus. Many students catching rides over there in
box cars who will return via Pullman if Georgia wins. [For the last
two years the return via Pullman has been in order.]
After the football season closes comes the term exams,
then the Christmas Holidays. On the return to Athens the winter term
begins. During this term all the fraternities give dances, the
Pan-Hellenic Council several, and some others by Athens organizations.
With the advent of spring comes the second term exams,
and baseball. Each student jealously watches the weeks "cuts" that
are allowed him in each class every term, so that he can see all the base
ball games, stay at home longer at Easter, and still save one or tow for
any emergency that might turn up.
In the latter part of April, the Spring Dances are
held. It is at this time that the fraternities have their house
parties and the whole University takes on "gala" attire for several days.
After this the base ball team must finish a successful
season and then final exams, but with them comes one consolation.
The fact that there are only three months to wait until you start back to

"THE CHINESE LANTERN"
A number of the pupils of the Senior high school have been practicing for
a play to be given April 22nd, at the K. of C. Hall. The proceeds
will be given to the Athletic Association of Glynn Academy. Very
attractive costumes are to be worn and everything will be in Chinese
style. Those who are taking parts in the play are: Daisy
Lazarus, Eloise Leybourne, Helen Busk, Fred Abrams, Sybil Bourne, Cornelia
Leavy, Kenneth Bell, Alton Burns, Gene Gignilliat, Hugh Aiken and
Henry Beach. The play is under the supervision of Miss Abrams
and Mr. Highsmith.
Three hundred years ago, Wiawana, the great artist
painted a picture, into which, when it was completed, he went to live.
With the picture possessing the soul of Wiawana as an inspiration, Mr.
Olangsti has become an artist and founded a studio. But though Mr.
Oglansti [sic] has the true feelings of an artist, he is married to a
shrew and has a fat son whose only ambition is to be a grocer.
With Mr. and Mrs. Olangsti lives a little Korean girl,
about whom an oracle has said "whosoever Mee Mee marries shall become the
greatest living artists." Mr. and Mrs. Olangsti are therefore
anxious the Mee Mee and Yunglangsti marry.
Mee Mee is in love with Tiki Pu, the studio drudge, who
is the only student who has really the heart of an artist. Therefore
Tiki Pu is harshly treated by the master of the studio and when finally he
calls on Wiawana to help him, the old artist responds, coming out of the
picture and taking Tiki Pu into it with him.
Three years have elapsed, it is the day ordained for
Mee Mee's marriage to Yunglangsti. It is also the day for the great
picture to be sold. Mee Mee is desperate. In her despair
she calls aloud for Tiki Pu. The light in the picture glows.
Wiawani steps out leading Tiki Pu back into...
...the world. It
is the "Feast of Lanterns" and the students are celebrating both the
festival and the approaching wedding.
They rush in with the bridal chair and seize the bride,
but Yunglangsti, the groom, cannot be found. "Ah, Tiki Pu, he'll
make a fine gloom!" So Mee Mee and Tiki Pu are taken away and the
oracle is fulfilled.

TRIP TO ARCO
Several days ago,
through the courtesy of Manager Welsh, the boys' chemistry class
was permitted to visit the Atlantic Refining Company's plant at Arco, Ga.
This plant is now one of the largest of its kind in the world and has
twenty years' building program, which, if carried out, will make it the
largest of its kind in the world. This plant has good shipping
facilities. It is situated on Turtle River and can command both
water and rail transportation as three first class railroads run by it.
All of the crude oil or petroleum is brought from the Company's fields in
Texas and Mexico and is transported in the Company's ships.
First we went out to the water front where the oil is
unloaded. The ships are connected to large storage tanks by pipes,
the oil then being pumped from the ships to the tanks by large electric
pumps at the pump house. Oil is pumped from the main steam
pump-house to load ships.
This pump-house is the real heart of the plant.
It has the same functions in the plant that the heart has in the body.
Just as the heart sends blood coursing through the veins so the pumps send
oil coursing through the pipes. All of the oil first passes through
the pump-house and by means of many valves and networks of pipes it is
distributed to the stills, and to and from various tanks as a blend is
The crude oil i pumped to the crude stills. Here
the oil is boiled. The temperature gradually rises and the products
come off according to their boiling points. The crude oil is broken
down into gas, fuel oil, gas oil, and crude lubricating oil. The
fuel oil is used at the plant for fuel, the crude lubricating oil is
shipped to other points to be refined, and the gas oil is refined here.
The gas oil is pumped to the high pressure stills,
where it undergoes a process of "cracking." Here under certain...
...conditions the gas
oil is heated and "cracks" or decomposes into lighter gas oil and gas.
The gas oil or gasoline oil is pumped to the steam
stills and here it is purified for the last time. After its final
purification, it is shipped over the country in large tank cars to be used
as motor fuel, and light and heat fuel. We observed at this set of
stills the process for removing carbon from the gasoline formed at the
The gas liberated at the high pressure stills is pumped
to the gas purification plant. Here it is washed and scrubbed by
being passed through a tank, which contains hollow tile, with running
water over it. The gas is then passed through compression,
expansion, and cooling stages and gasoline or any other liquid in it is
extracted. After this last process of purification, the gas is
stored in a large tank and is used for light and fuel at Brunswick and for
fuel at the plant.
There is also a large power house at the plant.
They make all of the electricity that is used at the plant and in the
homes of the employees. This power house consists of tow large steam
turbines, air compressors and switchboards.
All fuel burned at the plant is either fuel oil or gas
made at the plant. We noticed especially the drains and other modern
devices for keeping the plant clean. There were also many recording
instruments. These instruments register automatically the heat at
each still at all times of the day and night. The Company has a
laboratory for the purpose of testing all products.
Last but not least, we noticed the modern methods of
preventing and fighting fire. All of the plant is divided into
sections. There is a concrete fire wall around each section.
If a tank catches afire, the oil can be drained off from the bottom to
another tank. Also they have the ground networked with pipes.
There is a valve in every section connected with these pipes. When
the valve is opened, a solution of Foamite is immediately pumped over the
ground and by means of carbon dioxide is liberated, the fire is smothered.
The whole grounds of the plant can be covered with Foamite in a few
Upon leaving the plant we noticed that there were
several large storage tanks in the process of construction. These
are just outside the present fence of the plant and is a good indication
that the Company has plans for the near future. We pass through Arco
and were impressed with...
...the order and
neatness of the village. This trip is the second of several trips
anticipated by the class and was taken just at the time we were studying
oil refining. As a whole we enjoyed the trip and derived much
benefit from it.

There are unsung
heroes in every walk of life; there are numbers of people who never
receive the praise which they deserve. In every business there are
men who do things for which they do not get the credit. In every
line of athletics, there are those who give their time, trying to help the
cause and keep the first line men in good condition. Every football
team that represents a school or college has members who give their time
and thought to make the team a success. No baseball, basket-ball or
football team can be successful without a second team, men to manage the
finances, business managers and those who help in various other ways.
An organization cannot be a success without such people.
The first line men receive much and well-deserved
credit, but those who do not make the first team and yet keep working
continually to improve that first team, deserve a great deal of credit
also. Unfortunately this is often overlooked, the scrubs are
forgotten in praise of the first team.
Glynn Academy has some boys of this type, who knew they
could aid the school and the team by helping in different phases of the
work. They are the ones who manage the finances, take care of the
court or who are scrubs. There is infinitely more to it than just
"playing the game."
Some of these boys from Glynn Academy are:
