Greater and increased service to the Georgia Institute of Technology and to American industry by the 16-year-old Georgia Tech Alumni Foundation during the past year was reported at the November twenty-third meeting, by retiring president Cherry L. Emerson. It was pointed out that all the projects sponsored and financed by the Foundation, such as the Georgia Tech A-C Network Calculator Laboratory, Hydraulics Laboratory, and other research and teaching aids have contributed immensely to the industrial development of the South. After a vote of thanks to Dean Emerson was unanimously passed by the board, George W. McCarty, '08, president of the Ashcraft-Wilkinson Company, Atlanta, Ga., was elected president of the Foundation for the coming year. Fuller E. Callaway, Jr., '26, former president of the Callaway Community Foundation, LaGrange, Ga., and Thomas E. Fuller, '06, southeastern district manager of Westinghouse Electric Corp., Atlanta, Ga., were named vicepresidents. William A. Parker, president of Beck and Gregg Hardware Co., Atlanta, Ga., was re-elected as treasurer, and W. Howard Ector re-appointed as executive secretary. Organized in 1932, the Georgia Tech Alumni Foundation is a non-profit education?.! organization set up to administer, through a board of 21 outstanding Ga. Tech alumni engineers and industrial executives, funds made available by industrialists and other friends of the Georgia Institute of Technology. These funds, realized through contributions, gifts and bequests, are helping the Foundation fulfill its objectives among which are: 1. To make possible the scientific and economic research and investigation necessary for the development of the resources of the South, and to utilize human and natural resources so as to make the South an economically rich and profitable part of the United States and the world. 2. To develop material tests in the laboratories of the Georgia Institute of Technology for the use of American Industry. 3. To train scientific and engineering leaders who will make possible the efficient utilization of manpower in the manufacture of new and better commodities for use in the South and throughout the United States. 4. To foster the continuous coordination of effort between the educational facilities of universities, and the productive facilities of industry. 5. To provide modern equipment and up-to-date facilities at the Georgia Institute of Technology for utilization by small and large industries, and for the training of scientific and engineering leaders. ALUMNI OFFICE RECEIVES VALUED GIFTS Following our acknowledgment in the December ALUMNUS for the BLUEPRINTS that were given to the Alumni Office by R. D. Cole, M. E. 1922; and our request for a copy of the 1914 Annual, A. C. Grist, M. E. 1916, of Chattanooga, Tenn., and John L. Davidson, M. E., 1915, of New York City, were both so kind as to come to our rescue, early in December, with a copy apiece of the urgently needed 1914 BLUEPRINT. During the same period, L. A. Emerson, C. E. 1907, of Columbia, S. C , gave the office several interesting pictures of the 1907 track team and the Mandolin Club of that time. This very loyal and kind co-operation on the p a r t of Messrs. A. C. Grist, John L. Davidson and L. A. Emerson is greatly appreciated and it is a real pleasure to thank them publicly and most sincerely for their valuable gifts.

Dr. Harmon Caldwell Chancellor University System of Georgia At the October, 1948, meeting of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, Dr. Harmon W. Caldwell was elected Chancellor of the System to succeed Dr. Raymond R. Paty who resigned to become Executive Director of "The Rich's Foundation," of Atlanta. Dr. Caldwell resigned as President of the University of Georgia, as a result of his election, and recently assumed his active duties as Chancellor of the University System. Dr. Rogers Named President, Univ. of Georgia Dr. Jonathan Clark Rogers, President of North Georgia College at Dahlonega, was elected President of the University of Georgia, at the J a n u a r y 12 meeting of the Board of Regents. Dr. Rogers succeeds Dr. Harmon W. Caldwell, the new Chancellor of the University System. Dr. W. D. Young was appointed Acting President of North Georgia College, succeeding Dr. Rogers. Hon. Hughes Spalding Regents' Chairman The Board of Regents elected as its Chairman, Honorable Hughes Spalding of Atlanta. He was a member of the original Board in 1931, and its former chairman. Mr. Spalding succeeds Mr. Pope Brock, who retired from the Board of Regents. GEORGIA TECH RESEARCH INSTITUTE REPORTS DEVELOPMENTS ON VALUABLE CONTRACTS Contracts with initial budgets of $1,250,000 have been accepted by the Georgia Tech Research Institute, since its organization two and a half years ago. This announcement was made by Chairman William E. Mitchell, of the Institute's Board of Trustees. During the past year, Mr. Mitchell told the Board that the organization had spent nearly $500,000 on research. Col. Blake Van Leer, member of the Board and President of Georgia Tech, said that with the present backlog of contracts and "the continued growth of the Institute," it would be able to render "even greater services to the industry of this area." Dr. Gerald A. Rosselot, Director of Tech's Experiment Station and the Research Institute, said the fields of work covered by the contracts included electrical development, food processing, gasoline-engine development, spectrographic analysis, agricultural machinery, equipment design, patent research, technical literature research, chemical product evaluation, wind tunnel research, textile technology, hydraulics studies and A-C network calculator studies. The calculator, a $130,000 "brain" for mathematical computations, is housed in a $160,000 building at Tech. LETTERS AND CARDS GREATLY APPRECIATED Your many fine Christmas and New Year wishes, to all of us in the Alumni Office, were most sincerely appreciated, and we heartily thank you for your very kind thoughts. We are also exceedingly grateful for the grand letters and messages that were received, following the twentyfifth anniversary awards that were conferred upon "ye ole alumni secretary;" and we trust that our every sincere wish as expressed to you and to yours, in the December ALUMNUS, reached you well before the Christmas season. With many thanks, again, we wish to repeat our invitation to all of you to visit us, whenever you are on the campus, at our offices in rooms 205, 207, and 208, Knowles Building.

How to Unlock Gifts"

Condensed from Harper's

Magazine

ROBERT W. KING Physicist; Fellow, American Physical Society

(Reprinted in full, by permission of the Editors, from the January, 1949, edition of the Reader's Digest) Universities, research foundations and other endowed institutions all over the United States are in a critical financial state. Their costs of operation have been rising and their income from investments and gifts has not kept pace. Hence innumerable money-raising campaigns, some successful, many not. Ask anybody why this crisis has arisen and he will answer that it is due to taxes. Although the country is prosperous, our system of income taxation bears down so heavily upon large incomes, and provides such scant credit for donations, that the sources of philanthropy are drying up. The resultant crisis is more acute and more ominous than most people realize. Many a college president sees no alternative to a snowballing deficit or government subventions. In fact, there is scarcely an endowed institution of higher learning that is not now in receipt of considerable amounts of government money to finance research projects — the same government that takes our tax money. Few of us regard this with equanimity. Some students of taxation estimate that if the personal and corporate income-tax schedules were revised so as to permit deduction of contributions not from one's taxable income but from one's tax itself, up to say five per cent of one's income, this would unlock the needed funds. Such activities as education, science, medical research, etc., cannot be allowed to go into eclipse. Being essential to the national welfare, they must become a lien upon the federal treasury unless adequately supported by private giving. In either case the money comes from taxpayers; but the latter may eliminate all danger of political control. Whether or not the specific formula and percentage mentioned above are correct need not be discussed here; this is for Congress to decide. They merely indicate the kind of change that promises to be effective. My point is simply this: that the financial crisis of our endowed institutions can be surmounted by a carefully devised change in income-tax formulas — surmounted so as to enhance their income without jeopardizing their precious independence of federal dictation, and without pre-empting any tax revenues required for the necessary functions of government.

COACH DODD DEPICTED AS "GAY DECEIVER" In the November 27 issue of the Saturday Evening Post, the story of the life of Georgia Tech's head football coach, Bobby Dodd, is depicted in a most interesting and entertaining article entitled, "The Gay Deceiver of Georgia Tech." The story was written by Fred Russell, sports editor of the Nashville, Tenn. Banner. The article carried various illustrations and covered four pages; and it presented many facts to the Nation about one of the most prominent and popular coaches of the country. One of the many tops items in the article is the story about the performance by Dodd for Tennessee that proved to Coach Bill Alexander, Director of Athletics, that he had finally found the man who was someday to take over the coaching reins at Georgia Tech. Another little known incident is tha manner in which Dodd induced Dinky Bowen to display his gridiron prowess at Tech. These and many other bits of interest are ably related in "The Gay Deceiver of Georgia Tech."

Gene Turner Committee Announcements *

Gene Turner, Jr.

"Dear Friends: We are able now to make a n announcement which I know will be good news to all friends and supporters of Gene Turner. Gene's son, Eugene Jr., has accepted the call to succeed his father and he will leave for China early in 1949. The Chinese 'Y' is fortunate to have t h e continuance of Gene Turner's friendly personality and service through another generation and our Committee is fortunate still to be able to sponsor 'Gene Turner.' Gene, J r . w a s born in China and graduated from an American High School there. He then returned to this country for his college work at the University of North Carolina. After graduation there, he attended Yale Divinity School, majoring in Sociology and Religious Education. When war came he joined t h e Marines as a chaplain. He was in the first group that landed at Okinawa and remained there until t h e end. Since his return he has been getting excellent experience in 'Y' work as a necessary training for work in China. They tell m e that Gene, J r . is very like our Gene. He has t h e same friendly bearing and has been active in athletics and other extracurricular activities. H e was an Eagle Scout in China. H e was given the "Sullivan Award" in his Senior year a t t h e University of North Carolina as the student making t h e best contribution to student life. He was active in college 'Y' work and in music circles. While at Yale he took training in Y. M. C. A. work at t h e New Haven Y. M. C. A. on the side. His interest in things "outside t h e line of duty" was demonstrated in t h e Army where, as Chaplain h e was exempt from the routine r e quirements, b u t nevertheless he took a part with t h e rest of them, qualifying as an expert marksman. Our Gene continues on t h e payroll until t h e end of this year when h e officially retires. I doubt if h e quits work until his mind and muscles refuse to function. Enclosed is a letter from Gene himself. We a r e anxious for t h e Gene Turner Fund to come through strong this year, thereby expressing our appreciation to Gene for his friendship and for his excellent service to the people of China on our behalf. Sincerely yours, Signed: B. W. Sinclair, 1912 Chairman, Gene Turner Fund Committee"

Gene Turner, Sr.

REPORT LETTER FROM EUGENE A. TURNER "For some time past, as members of t h e Gene Turner Fund Committee know, Gene Turner, J r . has been considering a call to succeed me on the China staff. My wife and I have felt it a matter for Gene, J r . and his wife to decide, so we have held aloof and made no effort to influence t h e outcome, although, of course, there was the influence of parental example, and t h e fact that he was born in China and saw us at work there. In becoming m y successor he will be with those among whom he was born and among whom he spent his youth. Like his parents before him, he will be serving youth in numbers greater than any nation on earth. China boasts in boys alone as many as we have people in the whole United States. Chinese boys grow up just as they do here. If t h e right influences a r e brought to bear upon them; if t h e right motives a n d purposes are implanted in their minds, they will grow u p to be useful, dependable citizens of character who will lead their communities and their nation to a better day. It is t h e American story repeated in China, where t h e need for such citizens is greater, perhaps, than here. You who have children of your own, or who have watched youth grow, will know from your experience what I am talking about. Together we have seen it happen over the years — you, here at home, where there is much to help a boy make t h e grade, and I, both here and in China, where there is much less to help a boy. It is hardly necessary to tell you that m y wife and I have been watching in great sympathy, as well as in silence from the sidelines as Gene, Jr. and his wife have considered their call, nor need w e tell you that w e view with pride and satisfaction the decision they have made to take u p the task which so long has been ours, and may I add, yours too, through t h e gracious friendship you have given us through t h e years. We have never been able to express our appreciation for this help, which was just as necessary as t h e part we have played, and which we have often thought was perhaps t h e easier part. We have had t h e excitement and satisfaction which came from t h e fight. You have continued with us through prosperity and through adversity, when sometimes you may have felt that the dollars could have been used more usefully elsewhere. (Continued on page 8)

Handsome Silver Punch Bowl Service, Gift of South Texas Alumni Club, To Be Used at Opening of President's New Home

President and M r s . Blake V a n Leer shown unwrapping and a d m i r i n g the b e a u t i f u l silver punch b o w l , ladle and 2 4 cups t h a t were given by the South Texas, Georgia Tech A l u m n i Chapter for the President's new home a t 2 9 2 T e n t h Street, N . W . , Atlanta, Ga.

PRESIDENT VAN LEER PROPOSED CHIEF OF ARMY RESEARCH UNIT, ALSO RE-ELECTED HEAD OF S. E. C. President Blake R. Van Leer, of Georgia Tech, repeated the oath of office in December as a Colonel in the Corps of Engineers, Reserves, when he was re-enlisted by Colonel C. C. B. Warren at Third Army Headquarters, in Atlanta, Ga. By re-enlisting in the Reserves, Colonel Van Leer is back in the organization to which he belonged for more than 25 years. It was learned that Pres. Van Leer's appointment is preliminary to his being recommended by Lt. Gen. Alvan C. Gillem, Commanding General of the Third Army, as the head of a proposed Army Research and Development Unit in Atlanta. This unit, one of similar regional ones to be established over the country, will utilize the skill and science of the Army Reserve as well as that of the colleges and universities in defense developments. Pres. Van Leer's present rank in the Reserve is that of colonel. He first became a member in 1917, as a second lieutenant, joining the unit at Purdue University. He entered active service in July of the same year and served with the AEF in World War I as a company officer with the 316th Engineers, Ninety-first Infantry Division. He served overseas for 13 months, participating in the St. Mihiel, Argonne, Meuse-Scheldt and Lyr-Scheldt offensives. He was awarded the Criox de Guerre by the French Government. He retained his commission in the ORC following the war and in 1942 was called to active duty, advancing to the rank of colonel in charge of the Army Specialized Training Division.

Re-elected President S. E. C. Colonel Van Leer received additional honors when h e was re-elected President of the Southeastern Conference, at the sixteenth annual meeting of the organization in Gainesville, Fla., on December 11, 1948. Elected along with Dr. Van Leer were Fred Mitchell, of Mississippi State, as Vice-President, and N. W. Dougherty, of Tennessee, as Secretary and Treasurer. These three along with Auburn's Dr. Ralph Draughon and LSU's Dr. Harold Stokes will make up the executive committee for the next 12 months, A change in the transfer rule will allow a student to transfer from one school to another and participate in athletics after a one-year residence. This will only apply to boys who are not on scholarship. Athletes with scholarship commitments will not be eligible for competition if they should change from one school to another, and offcampus jobs are banned for athletes. In a brief address to the members Dr. Van Leer pointed out that there has been vast improvement in relations between the colleges, singling out Auburn and Alabama, who resumed football this year after a forty-year layoff, for particular praise. Pres. Van Leer urged members to attend the NCAA meetings this and every year. "If we don't go to these meetings, present our thoughts and fight to get them adopted then we don't have much complaint when the NCAA does something we don't agree with," he declared.

E. P. CAULDWELL, '24, HEADS MILITARY ORDER E. P. "Jess" Cauldwell, B. S. in M. E., 1924, was installed as President of the National Sojourners, Fort McPherson Chapter No. 60, Atlanta, Ga., at the Fort McPherson Officers' Club, on Wednesday evening, December 15, 1948. The retiring President was Colonel Oliver A. Seaver. Lieutenant General Alvan C. Gillem, Commanding General of the Third Army, was the guest speaker of the occasion which was attended by the officers and their ladies of the organization. Among other honor guests were: Major General, Deputy Commander, Chief of Staff, Third Army, Leland S. Hobbs and Mrs. Hobbs; Brig. Gen. and Mrs. George W. Smythe. General Smythe is the new commander of the Georgia Military District. Also, Colonel H. A. Myers and Colonel Frank Ward, Commanding Officer of Ft. McPherson; Dean Raimundo de Ovies; Lt. Col. Burns C. Cox, Ga. Tech, B. S. 1924, and other prominent members and their wives.

PLACEMENT OFFICE MAKES FINE RECORD Georgia Tech's Placement Service is finding jobs for its graduates at the rate of 1,100 a year, a placement rate that is expected to prevail during 1949 and 1950. Since its organization 16 years ago, Tech Placement Service has found positions for 15,922 alumni and new graduates in every State in the Union, 204 in foreign countries and 40 in the United States Possessions. Of the number placed in this country, 8,164 are in Georgia. Present placements are for the class which finished in December, 1948. The Placement Service is now under the direction of Fred W. Ajax, Associate Dean of Students.

GEORGIA TECH'S ALMA MATER SONG It is a most interesting coincidence that, at this time, when F r a n k Roman's handsome memorial is being designed, a letter was recently written to the Editor of the Atlanta Constitution, on the history of Georgia Tech's Alma Mater song, by Iver H. Granath, Arch., 1923, author of the words. Granath now lives at Fruithurst, Ala., where he has to take his affairs relatively easily to conserve his strength. We quote his letter, in part, as follows: "In 1919 Georgia Tech had 'Up With the White and Gold,' 'Ramblin' Wreck,' but no 'Alma Mater.' Visiting colleges had their Alma Mater songs. Perhaps it may have been mental telepathy on that October afternoon that made me feel that Tech also should have an Alma Mater song. Having played the violin in the Woodward Avenue Baptist Church at the age of 12, I thought, but I did nothing. Music had to be seasoned. Not until 1922 did the opportunity come. It was springtime when Frank Roman called me into the basement of the Tech YMCA where he had his shop. As you know, 'Wop' was also the bandmaster. Frank hummed a melody for me and I tried to hum it, too. I then suggested to Frank that he compose a lead sheet — you know, the treble clef only. When this was finished I took it out under the shed on Grant Field and wrote two verses in less than half an hour. The words were not only spontaneous but so sincere that I visualized Tech from the playing field to the classroom. Frank Roman, the master of music who made me feel very small in comparison with his genius, made the arrangement which is used to this present day. Signed: Iver Granath"

COL. VAN LEER SPEAKER AT OHIO STATE President Van Leer was the principal speaker at the banquet that celebrated the Diamond Jubilee Year of Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, on Friday evening, J a n u a r y 28. Dr. Van Leer was invited to make the address by Dr. H. E. Nold, Chairman, Department of Mine Engineering of Ohio State University; and he spoke on the subject, "The Social Responsibility of the Engineering Profession." GENE TURNER REPORTS

(Continued)

It all goes back to the far off year of 1907 when I went to Georgia Tech to serve as Secretary to the Y. M. C. A. and to the friendship which began with many of you there. Just as the sons of many of you have grown up, so has this one of ours. He is becoming 'associated with me in the business' to speak your language. As he goes to China he will find associated with him on Y. M. C. A. Boards and among his colleagues, sons of men whom I knew when they were high school and college students. There are four such sons serving as Directors in the first Y. M. C. A. I served in China. Another is now at the Rochester Theological Seminary for a year of study. He came to the Y to study English and then into an English Bible Class. Today he is Editor of the Y. M. C. A. Press and has many translations of English books to his credit, plus compositions of his own. There are others like these who in their boyhood came into the 'Y' and had the direction of their lives changed. As Gene, Jr. and his wife go out to assume tasks of this significance, to make friends and train future leaders, I should like to bequeath them to you and to your friendship, if I may, to be your agents, even as my wife and I have been over the years, so that this task which Tech friends took up through me, thirty-five years ago, can continue and move on through perhaps even a more important generation. As for my wife and me, when we accept retirement in December, circumstances are such that it seems wise for us to settle at Tryon, N. C , where we believe our habits of life will enable us to make ourselves useful. Then there are several personal projects which have for some time awaited our attention. If any of you find yourselves in the neighborhood of Tryon we hope you will find our latchstring and let us give you a welcome. As ever, yours, Signed: Gene Turner"

Alumni Memorial to Frank Roman

Artist's rendition of the very beautiful monument to be erected in memory of Georgia Tech's beloved former band leader, W . Frank Roman.

A beautiful and lasting memorial will be placed, at an early date, on the site of Frank Roman's grave in Atlanta's Greenwood Cemetery where the beloved former Ga. Tech band leader was buried in December, 1928. Affectionately remembered as Frank "Wop" Roman, by all Georgia Tech alumni and a host of others, from all walks of life, Frank Roman composed the music for the Ga. Tech "Alma Mater Song," "Up With the White and Gold," and wrote the score of his rendition of Georgia Tech's famous "Ramblin' Wreck" song. Since the time of "Wop" Roman's burial, neither the alumni, family, nor the many other friends, officials and relatives have been satisfied with the size and location of his lot and the suitability of his memorial. Recently, Mr. D. B. Donaldson, owner and manager of the cemetery, donated a larger and more prominent lot to the Alumni Association for Frank Roman's last resting place, provided a suitable memorial were furnished. Through the interest of George C. Griffin, Dean of Men, and C. D. LeBey, Alumni Association Representative; alumnus Morgan McNeel, Jr., also former members of the band and the ANAK Society, funds were raised to purchase the impressive memorial, as shown, in befitting remembrance of a grand person who took such an important place in the history of Georgia Tech. In designing the new monument, the official emblem of the college and the musical lyre were selected as ideal symbols, as they were considered to be most appropriate to use from every standpoint. The new memorial bears the following tribute, in memory of the revered band leader: FRANK ROMAN 1879 - 1928 Affectionately known as "Wop" Orchestrated the present musical score of "Ramblin' Wreck"—Band leader of Georgia Institute of Technology from 1914 until his death—and wrote the music for the Alma Mater song. WIND TUNNEL MODERNIZED In order to keep its wind tunnel research equipment up to date, the Daniel Guggenheim School of Aeronautics at Georgia Tech has recently completed the installation of a new balance system in its nine-foot wind tunnel, at an overall cost of approximately $50,000. Writing in the November, 1948, issue of "The Research Engineer," bi-monthly journal of the Georgia Tech Engineering Experiment Station, Research Associate Professor E. I. Bricker of the School of Aeronautics points out that in 1932, when the first wind tunnel was installed at Georgia

Alumni Club Meetings DALTON, GA. The Georgia Tech Club of Dalton had an excellent dinner meeting on Thursday night, November 18, at the Dalton Elk's Club. Mr. Walter M. Jones was responsible for the arrangements and did an excellent job of getting Tech men there. There were 37 out of a possible 43 present at the meeting. Certain families were well represented: namely, the Hamiltons, Higgins, Jones', McCamys and the Smiths. Honorable Carleton C. McCamy, '31, Mayor of Dalton, was elected President of the Club by unanimous choice. Mr. Henry L. Smith, '90, Tech's first graduate, was designated to remain President Emeritus. Dean George Griffin was guest speaker and was in his usual good form for the occasion. Roane Beard of the Alumni Office narrated the Tech-Tulane football game which concluded the meeting. LOS ANGELES, CALIF. A meeting of Georgia Tech Alumni in and around Los Angeles was held on Friday night, November 17, 1948 at the Roger Young Auditorium Restaurant. There were 26 present for the social get-together, dinner and showing of the Orange Bowl game. It was decided that the Alumni Club be organized on an informal basis and that three or four meetings a year at the most be held. Co-chairmen were appointed to arrange the next meeting. The youngest and oldest graduates were appointed; Gordon McHenry, '48 and C. D. Smith, '16. The group was very enthusiastic and seemed very much interested in promoting the Club and interest in Georgia Tech. MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE Charles S. Peete, '33, was elected president of the Memphis Georgia Tech Club at a reorganizational dinner meeting held at the King Cotton Hotel on November 15, 1948. He is an architect with offices in the Goodwyn Institute Building. Luther Hawkins, '48, who is with Buckeye Cotton Oil Company was elected Vice president. Frederick Fuchs, '36, was elected secretary and treasurer. Fred is the district manager for Ohio Brass Company. The meeting was arranged by Frank O. Waddey, '29, former All-America end at Tech. Ceylon Blackwell, '18, President and General manager of the DeSoto Garage, was Master of Ceremonies. The next meeting was held on J a n u a r y 10, 1949, at the King Cotton. NASHVILLE, TENN. The Georgia Tech Club of Nashville had a Turkey Dinner and election of officers last Thursday night, December 9. Approximately 65 members and wives were present, and it was an enjoyable occasion. Retiring president, Mr. Wister H. Ligon, was able to keep all speeches to a minimum, including his own. Charles E. Southern, '35, was elected president for 1949; William Nightengale, of Old Hickory and Hardie C. Bass, Jr., Class of '32, Vice-president; John Charles Wheeler, Class of '38, secretary; and Thomas Crain, '47, treasurer. Stephen May, '32, was in charge of the entertainment committee for the meeting and dinner. Tech, the world's speed record for airplanes was 294 miles per hour and that progress since that date could not have been achieved without extensive research. The new balance system just installed on the Georgia Tech nine-foot wind tunnel was built to Georgia Tech specifications, and the installation was performed by the staff of the School of Aeronautics. It is now being used extensively in the many aeronautical research projects being conducted at the college.

TECH FROSH 9 — G E O R G I A FROSH 7 Georgia Tech's freshman football team nosed out the yearlings from Athens in their annual Thanksgiving Day Charity tilt by the score of 9 to 7 before 38,000 fans. It was the only win of the three game season for the baby Jackets. Both teams had lost to the Auburn freshmen due to inability to make extra points. Tech scored in the first period after a pass from Darrell Crawford to Pete Ferris had set up a score. George Maloof bucked it over from the 2 yard line. The extra point was blocked. Georgia moved back quickly in the second period to score on a pass from Billy Grant to Henson. Haskins booted the extra point to give Georgia the lead, 7 — 6. Tech again drove deep into Georgia territory to the nine yard line, but couldn't click so kicked a field goal from the 16 yard line which gave them the margin of victory. Billy Harkness made the kick. Harkness' father, incidentally, coached Bobby Dodd as a freshman at Tennessee. (Continued on page 18)

HEALY AND BRODNAX MAKE ALL AMERICA Bill Healy, outstanding guard on the Tech team for the last three years made All-America on the first team of a number of selections; namely NEA, INS, Football Writers Association, as picked by them and written by Grantland Rice for Look Magazine, and Sporting News. He made the second team as picked by AP. Healy was captain of the 1947 team and has played a ferocious game every Saturday since coming to Tech. He made several all star teams last year including All-Southeastern Conference. Healy was given the annual award as being the best lineman in the Southeastern Conference by the Birmingham Quarterback Club. He also received the trophy for being the "Lineman Most Valuable to His Team," by the Atlanta Touchdown Club, as well as the Rhodes Trophy. (See picture this issue). End George Brodnax was picked on the Colliers AllAmerican first team. This team was selected after eight of the countries' leading coaches had studied motion pictures of games played in all parts of the United States. Brodnax, a senior, was co-captain of the 1948 team and was a consistent star on offense and defense. Both Healy and Brodnax made the AP ALL-SEC, Frank Zeigler, Tech fullback, made the second team.

ALABAMA 14 — GA. TECH 12 The Crimson Tide took advantage of two Ga. Tech miscues and played alert football to hand the Engineers their second defeat of the 1948 season, 14-12. In the second quarter Tech's safety man, Jimmy Petit, fumbled a punt on his five yard line, Alabama recovering. On a cleverly executed play Cadenhead went around left end for the score without being touched. Tech's secondary was pulled in and completely fooled by a fake buck. The half ended with Alabama leading 7 — 0. In the third period, Tech's center, Lewis Hook intercepted a Bama pass on his 34 and ran it to the Tide 32. Bowen who had been crippled a good part of the season, made six. Bowen again ran off tackle and though hemmed close to the sideline, kept twisting, turning and driving till he had gone all the way for a Tech score. Bowen missed the extra point. Late in the third period a long pass intended for Tech end, Jack Griffen, was intercepted by Bama center, Speed, who ran 62 yards to score again for the Tide. He picked up interferers as he went and was not touched. Salem booted the extra point and Tech was behind 14 — 6. In the fourth period, Tech drove forward twice only to be stopped by an intercepted pass or passes badly thrown. The third drive netted a touchdown with only a minute and a half to go. A 47 yard run by Joe Cobb after receiving a short pass was the highlight of this drive. Bowen scored on a short plunge through the middle. A bad pass from center prevented the extra point from being made.

TECH 54—CITADEL 0 Tech had a field day at the expense of Little Citadel on Nov. 20, 1948. The Jackets set a new high in yardage gained when they ran up a total of 710 yards by rushing and passing on their outclassed opponents. On the second play of the game Bob McCoy ran 87 yards for a touchdown. Red Patton threw to George Brodnax for the second score. The third was made on a pass from Southard to McCoy, covering 34 yards. A pass from Southard to Brodnax was good for the fourth six pointer. A minute before the half a pass, Brown to Anderson, who lateraled to Harvin, was good for another touchdown. In the third period Queen r a n from the nine yard line for a touchdown. Al Lansing scored again from the eight after a drive had covered 73 yards. Buddy Fowlkes, track star, ran 39 yards for the final talley. Hays McKinney, Tech guard, broke his leg in an effort to score from the one yard line. Rumsey Taylor also suffered a broken foot in the game. Tech used 43 players and couldn't seem to keep from scoring except twice when McKinney tried to score. Ga. Tech (12) 12 152 164 25 11 31 35

THE GEORGIA TECH A L U M N U S

GEORGIA 21 — TECH 13 The Georgia Bulldogs completely outclassed Georgia Tech on Sanford Field in the classic struggle played before 52,000 fans November 27, 1948. It was the only game of the 1948 season in which the Jackets had not played superior football against an opponent. Georgia was not to be denied as they drove 64 yards in the first quarter for a score made by Floyd Reid on a 5 yard sweep around his left end. Although hit for no gain by Bob McCoy, he shook loose and went across for the score. The second drive in the second quarter started from their own 8 yard line. Joe Geri ran for 45 yards to the Tech 47, passes by Rauch for 10 and 15 yards to Lorendo and line smashes by Geri and Tilletski carried it on down where Tilletski bucked over from the four. Geri again kicked the extra point. The score at half time stood Georgia 14, Tech 0. In the second quarter Bradach blocked a Georgia punt, but Tech couldn't move and they lost their first scoring opportunity on two incomplete passes. Later an intercepted pass stopped them again. Early in the third period Mathews broke through and blocked Geri's punt. The ball rolled into the end zone where Brodnax recovered for the Tech score. Bowen converted and Tech was back in the game. Again in the third period Tech was forced to kick from behind its goal line. Humphreys, who averaged 50 yards, kicked a beauty to McCall who caught it on his own 46. Tech men had him covered, but he got by them some way and went all the way for the score. He was aided by some sensational blocking on Georgia's part. In the fourth quarter Tech drove 61 yards through Georgia's line with Bowen going over from the 5 on sheer determination. The extra point was wide. The score was Georgia 21, Tech 13.

TECH-GEORGIA FROSH GAME (From page 13) For Tech Darrell Crawford, Powell Sheffer and Ray Thompson were standouts in the backfield. Crawford's passes were beautifully thrown. In the line Pete Ferris, end, John Bryan, tackle, and Ray Beck, guard, stood out. Georgia featured Billy Grant, quarterback, Dick Raber and Zippy Morocco halfbacks and two tackles Marion Campbell and Bill Hagerty. Jimmy Henson at end turned in a fine performance.' Georgia Frosh (7) The Yardstick Tech Frosh (9) 12 First Downs 13 159 Yards Rushing 89 17 Passes Thrown 12 5 Passes Completed 7 93 Yards Passing 106 28.2 Punting Average 32.2 35 Penalties 60 John Rauch, who completed 8 of 11 passes, Joe Geri, who gained 129 yards, plus Georgia's line play accounted for the difference in the two teams. Tech really had the ball only a small part of the time because they couldn't stop the much heavier Bulldogs. Humphreys' kicking, Bowen's determination, and the defensive play of Healy, Hook and Ziegler kept Tech from getting a much worse defeat.

ALUMNUS

GEORGE W. DUNN - PHILADELPHIA,PA.

How did I make the transition from a Teachers' College to the life insurance business? Here is about how it happened. I waved a fond farewell to Moorhead State Teachers' College, Minnesota, in the spring of 1941, and settled down to do some serious thinking concerning my future. Uncle Sam supplied some of the answers in September of that year, and for the next five years the Army Air Corps was my boss, and my address was a succession of Army Air Bases and A.P.O. numbers, which stretched from Colorado to Scotland, England, Africa, Italy and Corsica. For two of these years it was my good fortune to be associated with a brother officer, "Cap" Haines, in civilian life a partner in New England Mutual's Philadelphia General Agency, Moore and Haines. He, my wife—a U. S. Army nurse, whom I married in Africa—and I spent long hours discussing life insurance and its possibilities as a career for me. It offered all of the things that I had ever hoped for in business: independence, unlimited income possibilities and, most of all, a never-ending challenge to my ability in a field where limits do not exist, excepting as I alone set them. Before I had finished my terminal leave, I was studying for my Pennsylvania State Insurance examination, and was making field trips with my friend from overseas. Now, after two years, I am more convinced than ever that there is no better future than that which the New England Mutual offers. To prove my point, I have the support of my 97 policyholders, and the one million dollars of new life insurance which I have placed on their lives. S ^ _

GRADUATES of our Home Office training courses, practically all of them new to the life insurance business, are selling at a rate which produces average first-year incomes of $3600. T h e total yearly income on such sales, with renewal commissions added, will average $5700. Facts such as these helped George Dunn solve his career problem. If you'd like to know more, write M r .
