On Sept 15, 1927, a group of boys from the Augusta area, most of whom had finished the Academy of Richmond County, left for Georgia Tech. We went together on the Georgia Railroad train. When we reached Atlanta we hailed two taxi cabs and headed for North Avenue. We learned later, as we became more familiar with Atlanta, that the cabbies had taken us on a "cook's tour" before depositing us. The following Augusta boys matriculated that day: "Buck" Lanier, Blev and Jim Thompson, twins, Robert Powell, James Chafee, Harry Jefferies, Horace Marlowe, Terrell Wiggins, Ansel Tolbert and me, Ed Smith. Very promptly we registered in the administration building. We were given applications to fill out, and, by mistake, I was given two. After completing my application, I had a flippant moment and decided to register my mother's kinsman, George P. Butler. He was the principal of ARC, although he was more like a headmaster, very strict and stern. His muscular jaws were kept tight and he reminded us of an ancient Roman emperor. He played football on one of the University of Georgia's first teams and was a loyal alumnus and a great booster of the red and black. Nothing could be more amusing than to register him as a Tech freshman, but I lost my nerve after writing George P. and finished with Burdell. My best friend was Jack Dawson. His mother's maiden name was Burdell. We had two cats that we played with as children in Augusta. One cat was named Farrar and the other one Burdell, so the name was familiar to me. Thus was born George P. Burdell. I rushed out of the registrar's office and down the front steps of the administration building. The first person I saw was Buck Lanier, and I told my old friend about the caper. We both laughed and started to spread the news. That night a group of us were singing to the accompaniment of the uke and banjo and between songs we thought up more mischief for George P. Burdell. Boys from other areas joined in the fun. Tech employed the honor system in those days. Upon entering class, students Tbe author is a businessman in Augusta, Ga., who graduated from Georgia Tecb in 1930. picked up a small blue-bound paper book from the instructor's desk. The presence of the blue books indicated a quiz, which was usually on the blackboard. Often as not, one did not see the instructor that period. So, it was a simple matter for one of the "George P." group to pick up two blue books and after completing one for himself, turn in one for "George P." Care was exercised that only one set of answers was turned in for George P. True or false quizzes were a cinch and solutions to a problem were just as easy. George P.'s luck was phenomenal. Invariably he made better grades than did his master. I do not recall his ever making a low grade. Both George P. and I were excused from Dr. Robert Evans Sheppard's class, Col. C. B. Drennon recalled in an article about George P. in The Atlanta Journal and Constitution Magazine ("The Spirit of Georgia Tech," Feb. 13, 1977). Dr. Sheppard said, "Those two students know more history than I do." We were studying the French Revolution at the time, and of course Robespierre, Marat and Danton. MERICA and Tech, in particular, were good places to be in those days. When you saw a group of boys outside Dean Skiles' office waiting to see him, you knew they were in trouble. As I understand it, now if you see a group waiting to see the dean, you know the dean is in trouble. Americans were respected all over the world. Calvin Coolidge was in the White House and we were "Keeping Cool with Coolidge." Jack Dempsey and Gene Tunney ruled the boxing world. Charles Lindbergh had just made bis historic flight to Le Bour-get Field, Paris. He came to Grant Field in the fall of 1927. Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb, a Georgian, were household words. Ruth hit 60 home runs in 1927 and with a dead ball at that Bill Tilden ruled the tennis world, completely dominating the game. Tech's tennis team was superb. Strangler Lewis was tbe last word in honest wrestling. Tech's Ed Hamm was Olympic broad-jump champion. Tech's own Bobby Jones was "Mr. Golf," and Tech's Watts Gunn was the best known of tbe collegiate golfers. The Tech golf and swimming teams were outstanding. Wherever football was followed, Vance Maree, Father Lumpkin, Stumpy Thomason, Frank Speer and our head coach, Bill Alexander, were known. Our former head coach, John Heisman, along with Knute Rockne were without peers among coaches. Tech and Notre Dame were the teams to beat in football. Continued on poge 35
