In compiling this, the first
Annual of Alclerson Baptist

make a contribution, however
small, to the expression of our

that this hook may prove a
worthy refleclion of our lives.
May it recall for all of us
cherished memories and an
added appreciation of the
friendships, of the associations,
and of the ideals of our

Time glides past and beckons its fingerg
Months grow older swiftlyg seasons veer.
With regret we leave A. H. A.,
Home of joy and cheer.
Through the future we will praise you
And recount the fun of olden days,
And we'll dream old dreams so tenderly,
Faithful A. B. A.
Farewell to you, dear prep schoolg
To you all loyal praise.
Thy friendships true, e'er old, e'er new,
Enrich the passing days.
As we wander through life's turnings
Memory sweet will whisper true.
Those days of yore will come no moreg
A. B. A., we sing adieu.

A. li. A. in perpetual motion. As an orator
he is a regular VVilliam -lennings Bryan, and

Years ago we wondered what noble ambi-
tion was masked in this insignificant exterior.
XVe are still wondering. She is a crack
athlete tsad to relate, the crack is in her
brainl and always the rival team's best
player. Because of a pull with the teachers
she succeeded in getting lots of good grades,
but she couldn't fool us.

Last june Alta succeeded in bulldozing
poor little George into marrying her-it was
the only way to get rid of her-so he simply

though henpecked. So we wish that you both
live happily ever afterwards.

lfor three years "Boss" has held spellbound
the occupants of the Old Dorm by the hair-

addition to this, he pulled two original jokes,
in appreciation of which his laughter is heard

Yes, she has always been a delicate child.
The tragedy of her school life has been that
she was not physically able to have feeds
like other girls. There was always something
to eat in her room-we think it was because
she was unable to eat it. Although she
weighed more than some of the walking
clothes racks, she was a star guard.

This Gabriel-voiced specimen of humanity
has consented to stay among us and be our
soprano soloist until June. Please don't get
the mistaken idea that she is any good at it.
As joke editor of the "Boardwalk" we will
say that she is certainly a farce. She is
pleasant to talk to, but do not trust her with
your heart, for she is so careless that she
might break it.

This concentrated essence of something or

in Beckley, to daintily gather some fragrant
arts of knowledge to add to his gorgeous
bouquet. From the A's he drags down he

Juxiou Ammzsow, President
VVhen we as Fresh joined A. B. A.,
Greenest of green-the teachers say
NVe took the prize. But we've believed
That they were very much deceived.
VVe Freshies were just full of vim,
Always tactful, not prone to sin.
We tried quite hard all rules to keep,
Never declared they were too steep.
VVith junior as our President,
VVe would progress, 'twas evident,
And every person, as a rule,
Said our class was the best in school.
VVith suchia start see what we'll do,
The Freshman Class of ,22.
This year we're what we longed to be,
The Sophomore Class of twenty-three.
VVe lead in fun and wit and brains,
And always where class spirit reigns.
VVe play with pep, we win much fame,
VVe join in hikes and every game.
VVith Junior still our class to guide,
It seems that luck is by our side.
VVe boost our class with all our might,
All that we do is surely right.
Awaiting now our Junior year,
VVe hope that it will soon be here.

Sl, tered A. B. A. Those dignified Seniors and "Know-All"
Sophomores, who have no remembrance of their own Freshman
days, found amusement in the very sight of us. We have all made many
blunders and mistakes. Of course, we were green, but not evergreen.
That the social affairs of our class have, in our own estimation,
been very successful, is largely due to the co-operation of our sponsor,

F:-' HE basketball season is just now getting under headway.
About twenty-five candidates have reported to Coach Stew-
lf-N1 art, who has formed a league among them in order to create
interest and rivalry.
Our manager, Opie Hill, is busy completing the year schedule. The
first game is to be played with A. C. I. january 19th in the A. B. A.
gym. Coach Stewart is much pleased with the promising material now
practicing, and expects the season to be a successful one. Poe, a letter
man of last year, is now recovering from an injury sustained in football,
and will soon be in shape to take his place on the first team.
Here's hoping we can't count the victories, and the boys will fight
fair and square, proving their ability to face any situation in life as well
as in sport.

To Bliss llc-adows and llr. Alderson go all the credit and honor due unusual
heauty. VVere it not for the quotation, "Beauty is its own excuse for being," we
would still be wondering why Venus and Apollo continued to hang around. llary
has the fascinating eye, but we niust pause here to congratulate her business inanager
in the Beauty Campaign, whose diplomacy and hribery did what nature alone eould
never accomplish. slunior's dimples, which were so proininent before, are a thing
of the past, and his now sober countenance signifies either disdain for his fellow

V K RAYIATIC, talent in A B A rather successfully hid itself
5? during the entire first semester. Rlartha Catherine Alderson
and Loise Byrnside were the only ones brave enough to venture
any readings for our appreciation. These We enjoyed hugely.
- But a late start is not necessarily a poor one. Unexpectedly the
Y. W. and Y. NI. plays threw off the dramatic lethargy and proved
the ability grown, but slightly rusty from disuse. The final success-the
climax of artistic presentation-was the Senior Class play late in the
Spring. Under the direction of Miss Evangeline Lawson of the
Expression Department, it established our interpretative power and won
Throughout the school year, Friday has been a red-letter day, a
time to anticipate with eagerness, in short, a time to live for. School
parties of varying interest, affording opportunity to see students,
collectively and individually, were held on these evenings. Miss Parker
arranged a Moother Goose party in the Fall which proved to be a
unique aH'air. The Christmas party, with the impressive pageant, the
Senior trip-around-the-world Qenjoyable, if our purses were anaemic for
a month followiugj, Spring and Fall hikes were the high lights of the
season. Bliss Lacy and bliss Fontanna entertained the llusic Depart-
ment with a delightful party between semesters. Most of us, through
luck and conscientious effort, gained an invitation. The Senior party
in February was a great success- -if we judge by their own accounts.
All eyes were turned to the prospective junior-Senior reception. But
the burning question was "To be-or not to be."

we decided that we wouldnt be 'breeniesu very long. There were about
thirty-five of us Freshmen, and when you hear the remainder of this valuable
history you will see that it was quality as well as quantity.
The first thing of great importance which we accomplished was winning first
prize on l-lallowe'en night for having the best and most original stunt of all the
classes. This, of course, made the other classes have it in for us because they thought
to let the Freshmen beat them was a disgrace. flvater they learned that if they beat
the Freshmen it was an honor very hard to gain.l So the "All-Wise" Sophomores
md Seniors challenged the "poor little Freshmen" fas they thoughtj and the Juniors
for a field meet. The Juniors did not have any athletes to contribute to this big
affair, but we knew we could do it without them, so we accepted the challenge.
The eventful day arrived, and, with j. B., Russell, Cesco, Ray, Raleigh and Lee,
who later proved to be A. B. A.'s great athletes, we carried away the victory again.
After this glorious victory we were never called "Rats" or "Greenies"
The next year found us a group of "Know-It-Alls" in the new building. This
year our class gave over half of the men of a football team that A. B. A. will ever
be proud to own. The team won not only in score, but they were complimented
everywhere for their clean playing. ln this year our class shone in scholarship. A
large number of the ones on the honor roll were from the Sophomore Class, and
llliddyf' our faithful class president, won the Barnard Carroll Alderson scholarship.
The year of 1022 found a large number of the class back. But how grieved we
were when Vida llicfiaughlin did not come backg also Hilda, Mildred, and others
whom we loved. lint Vida's absence WTIS a great loss to our class in. two ways-of
course, we lost Vida, but that isn't all, we lost "Deacon." He missed those brown
tyes and rosy cheeks and sunny smile so much that he could not bear to stay in the
class. So he moved on to the Senior Class of '23, but later he wished he had stayed,
when it seemed that our class had a new member from Virginia, who in size could
equal Vida. This was our peppy and well-beloved "Culpeppah." This year went
on with many good times as to hikes to Bakers Mill, etc., but the crowning event
was the banquet given the Seniors by the Juniors. And, of course, everybody said it
was the best reception ever given in a class in A. li. A. It couldn't help but be such.
for the Class of '24 gave it. And there never was a "Class of '24" before. Again
this year our scholarship was high, and Hllliddyl' took the scholarship, and on the
fxemption list were seventeen namesg ten of these were Juniors.
lint now, dear Class, our history is almost over-"Nol" Now let me see if we
have done anything in the year 1923-24. Oh, yes, there are twenty-four Seniorsg
some of the old members aren't back, but we have new ones, and the largest class
that ever graduated from A. B. A. is about to graduate--"The Class of '24." This
tear we have undertaken a great big job to put out the first Annual of A. B. A., and
by the co-operation of the student body it is a success, and we are all proud to carry
our Animals home with us.
And now, Class, as we have been so victorious and ever successful in these four
short years, as our history shows, may the history of each of our lives be just so.

nomena that our career here is soon to end, we, the Class of 1924, of Alderson Baptist
rsigfiq Academy, are about to make our last will and testament. Realizing that all careers,
whether of individuals or organizations, must sometime end, we hope that this cul-
mination of our own will be at least not inglorious.
Perhaps it is not for us to say what measure we have attained success while here, but
we must surely judge for ourselves how nearly we have fulfilled our ambitious. As a class
we shall soon be dead, and our cherished possessions we dispense as follows:
Clansr I. To the Freshmen, our ambitions as Freshmen to achieve greatness, thereby winning
favor in the eyes of Dr. Forbell.
Clausr 2. To the Juniors, our anticipated attacks of stage fright at Commencement exercises,
and also our desire for Senior privileges, with these provisions: First, if by some unthought
of miracle this desire is ever realized, all members of the Class of '24, shall he immediately
notified, the notices being accompanied by affidavits to remove doubts. Second, if las we expectl
this desire is not realized, it shall be willed in turn to the class who will succeed the present
juniors, with these same provisions.
Clauxr 3. To Professor Cantrell we bequeath a share of our intrepid daring, that he may
calmly face attempted robberies, firecracker bombardments, pains of the dentists chair, and
trials of the football field.
Clause I. To Miss Bailey we eagerly leave our English IV notebooks in their entirety,
grammatical errors, witty expressions, artistic thoughts and individual ideas, provided that Miss
Bailey will agree to take from each of said notebooks the poem contained therein and publish
all in one volume.
Clarur 2. VVe reluctantly will to the juniors our corner in the Auditorium for holding
class meetings, and hope their decisions will be as wise and their meetings as full of joy as
ours have been.
Clause 3. To the Y. VV. C. A. we leave the oliice room of our Annual Staff, which will
provide a place where the Cabinet can plan campaigns for funds, and members can hold truth-
Clause l. To Professor McRae we leave a portion of our youthful outlook on life, so that
he may not become discouraged with the rising generation when grading Sophomore Bible
Clausr 2. VVe leave to the town of Alderson our best wishes for the growth of its population,
for the progress of its industries, for the development of its institutions, and the continued
efficiency of its water system.
Claim' 3. To the Y. M. C. A. we cheerfullyrbequeath all money left in the treasury after
the expenses of publishing the Annual have been metg providing, first, that a part of the money
he used to buy new records for the phonograph from time to time, second, that the remainder
be used to equip a gymnasium and "Y" room in the new Boys' Dormitory.
lndividual property we will and bequeath as follows:
Clause I. l, Boss Ilolland, will: Item 1. To Roy Damron my broom and dust pan,
together with my idea of cleanliness. Item 2. To Professor Manch two small pieces of resin
and one catgut violin string.
Clause 2. I, Melvin McGehee, will: Item I. To Dennis Oxley my tendency to get campused.
Clause 3. I, Raleigh Shawver, will to Dick Jones my mastery of Cicero.
Clause 4. I, Opie Hall, will to Roy Damron my craving for "Beechnut" and "Camels"
Clause 5. I, Carrison Ballengee, will to Miss Lawson my strong voice, that she may more
efliciently call out her orders to her drill squad.
Clause 6. I, Otis Mylum, having gotten a new razor Christmas, bequeath my old one to
Clause 7. I, Howard McClung, leave with Professor Tomlinson the reputation he has given
me as a revolutionary element.
Clause 8. I, Jesse Poe, bequeath to junior Alderson my mania for acquiring "dates."
Clause 9. I, Kathryn Wikel, do hereby bequeath to Clara Fox my rich and varied aptitude
for slang, with the warning that not a single gem he lost. In order to concentrate supply, I
leave to Delvin Harrah my ability to "kid" professors of all ages, sizes, and peculiarities.
Clause 10. I, Marguerite Forbell, dot leave my basketball reputation to some aspiring
devotee of the art. My retiring, yet artful, coy manner is an achievement which I cannot
pass on to another-one must learn for herself.
Clause 11. I, Marie Sealier, would will to VVahnette Forbes my stand-in with the Deans
if I did ll0t fear that rust would dull the implement. My title of Miss I leave to Eunice
McRae, as I shall have little use for it in the future. My lady-like manner and melodious
speaking voice are for Agnes Kessler. I strive to help the indigent.
Clause 12. I, Frankie Holland, do leave to Marguerite Adcock my sylph-like resemblance,
that she may grow and prosper even as I.
Clause 13. I, Alta Hill, leave my quiet, yet determined, manner to Irene jones, that she
may do as well as I in matrimony and in life.
Clause 1.1. I, Enola Pitzenbarger, do bequeath to Evelyn Symms my impulsive manner and
tartness of phraseg to Harry Brown my athletic grace, to Berye Ballengee my ability to spell
Clause 15. I, julia Jones, hereby leave to Margaret Weekly my talent for laughing on
occasion and for suppressing giggles when necessity requires. My operatic power and love
for the hero goes to Vida McClung.
Clause 16. I, Inez Belch, will to Mary Meadows my desire to study even after light bell,
that Mary may spend that particular time of the night with more profit and security than she
has in the past. To Mae O'Neal goes my "classic," "How to Interest the Men."
Clause 17. I, Lois Byrnsides, positively refuse to part with my role as "power behind the
throne" in the Junior Class. But my ability to use my eyes I do leave to Opal Bartlett, that
she may have some variety of procedure.
Clausel 18. I, Merle Thomas, do will to Dennis Oxley my infectious giggle, with directions
for keeping same well oiled and ready to go. To anyone deeply appreciative of the charms
of music as rendered by second tenors I give my ability to ooze through Auditorium windows
and my patience in waiting indefinitely.
To the school we resign our most cherished possession, Miss Nelson, who has been our sponsor
for four years, our friend, who has led us through all our difiiculties.
We wish to congratulate in advance the class which succeeds in getting Miss Nelson
for a sponsor, and hope that the hours they spend together may be as pleasant and profitable
as those we have spent with her.

Class Prophecy. 1924
i T is a bright day in early June, in the Summer of 1940. The sunlight stealing
rg,"Z",:g I through the small openings of a luxuriant growth of vines which shade thc
end of the veranda of an imposing country residence, falls upon a woman.
L' From outward appearances her age would be hard to ascertain. The expres-
sion on her face radiates sincere kindness and unmistakable strength of purpose. A
gentle breeze strays by, lifting a wisp of silver hair from her temple. That little
breeze, bearing the breath of fragrant June flowers, must stir memories within her,
for she half turns in a large easy chair and gazes down the broad expanse of the beau-
tiful valley until her eyes rest on the white column and glistening spires of a large
building. It is the Administration Building of a Woman's College, the result of many
years of hard work and the culmination of her dreams.
As she watches, a wistful look comes into her eyes, and, picking from her lap a
rose petal which has blown there, she arises and slowly goes into the house. Entering
the large library, she seats herself at a table and, gathering before her a pile of
newspaper clippings, she prepares to paste them in a large, leather-bound book. Before
fastening them to the leaves of the book she reads each clipping carefully. Some bring
to her face bright smiles, some a pathetic smile, and some a smile of pride. And
once in a while, as she reads, a tear slips down her cheek and drops unnoticed-they
are not tears of grief, but tears that come only with beautiful reminiscences.
Peering over her shoulder, we shall read with her.
The first is taken from "Alumni Notes" of the "Aldersonian," date September
"Coach Opie C. Hill, much to the exhilaration of the Athletic Department of
Alderson Baptist Academy and Junior College, has refused the splendid and flattering
salary of ten thousand dollars, offered by the University of California, in order that
he may coach for his Alma lylaterf'
And the next from the same column: "No less elated is the Administration of
A. B. A. over a telegram announcing the acceptance by E. NI. lllidkiff, Ph.D., of the
position as head of the lllathematics Department and as Dean of boys at Alderson
Baptist Academy. The school is quite fortunate in securing another such outstanding
character as hir. lylidkifff'
From Fayette Tribune: "Our civic pride demands that we give some space
to the march of progress in this County. Charles T. Holland, C.E., is in charge of
the construction of a gigantic dam on Keeney's Creek."
Baptist Advocate, August 20, 1940: "Miss Julia Jones, who for the past ten
years has been in the mission Held of Siam, is now touring the schools of VVest
Virginia, giving lectures on the results of her work and studies there."
The Danville Daily Virginian, july 8, 1940: "Rev. Otis B. Nlylum, pastor of
the First Baptist Church of this city, has issued a public challenge to Professor
Goozum, head of Department of Science of Columbia University, to a series of joint
debates concerning the question of evolution."
From the Local and Personal column of The Huntington Herald-Dispatch we
see this: "lWrs. Marie S. Seafler Ball was hostess at a social given in the parsonage
of Milton, West Virginia, in honor of her husband, Charles D. Ball, D.D., Ph.D.,
who had been absent from home for a period of three months on an evangelistic
To our chagrin, astonishment and slight political party embarrassment, we read
a clipping taken from The Charleston Gazette, Charleston, W. V., November 3, 1940:

"Hon. Hugh Moore Smith, ex-Prosecuting Attorney of Fayette County, has formally
announced his candidacy on the Republican ticket for Governor of West Virginia.
There are prospects for one of the most exciting and contested campaigns in years,
as both Democratic and Republican candidates are of strong characters and have
enthusiastic followings throughout the State.
New York Herald, june 18, 1940. Taken from the Society columns: "Mrs,
Lois liyrnside Lilly, who was at the Polo Grounds yesterday to see her husband, NI. S.
Lilly, smack out his first home run of the season, returned to her home today at
Madison, VVest Virginia."
NVith a feeling of intense interest and sympathy we read the following: "Mr. A.
Hovey lVIcClung, a traveling salesman, formerly of this city, was arrested at Charleston,
South Carolina, charged with having moonshine in his possession. Upon investigation
it was found that the liquid thought to be moonshine was a harmless hair tonic. Mr.
McClung was released with apologies from the authorities."
Pocahontas Times, January 7, 1940: "Two dollars and ninety-eight cS2.98l
cents reward for the return of a .303 high-power Savage rifle to Ruckman Deitz, a
citizen of Mt. Lookout, Nichols County. The gun was lost somewhere between
VVilliams River and Bill's Ranch. Editor's note: Mr. Deitz was chased Qinj last
Friday unceremoniously by a ferocious grizzly and lost his gun in the race."
From the Chattanooga News, February 21, 1940: "Miss Meryl Thomas, National
Secretary of Students' Y. VV. C. A., has recently written a large number of pamphlets
giving full information as to thelfpurpose of tlfilg Y. W. C. A. and its functions.
Anyone desiring one of the pamililets may send to 1682 Eleventh Avenue, Culpepah,
Virginia 'five cents' or 'one nickel' with his and address."
Eagerly we read when we see another taken from The Aldersonian:
"Mrs. Alta Woods Hill has entered her O., Jr., in the Alderson Baptist
Academy and junior College, that he his inherited talent for singing
Calvin Creek VVeekly, June 1, 1940: M. W. McGee, YV. R. Shawver,
R. H. McClung and J. A. Poe have just the 'Long Distance Hospital' on
Cabin Creek. Though established only a few months, they report excellent progress,
having already treated seven patients, only five of whom have died."
The Monroe VVatchman: "Carrosine Ballangee, a thriving dairyman of this
County, has recently purchased thirty-two head of pure bred Jersey cows."
The Normal, April 4, 1940: "Miss Inez Belch, a maiden school teacher, has
retired from active school life, and endows the 'Club for the Extermination of Men'
fifty thousand dollars. Forty-nine thousand and fifty dollars was given her by a
relative. All the rest she has saved herself by habits of thrift and economical living
for the past five years."
La Critique, November, 1941: "Madame La Champdivers, nee Kathryn Wikel,
returned yesterday from Monte Carlo, where ostensibly she has been gathering at
close range material for a new novel to be entitled 'Successful lVIethods.' The public
eagerly awaits another work, written in her usual brilliant yet blase manner. Mme.
Champdivers, with Henry James, says that she cannot write of things she has not
VVith astonishment we read: "Theater, April, 1940. The premiere danseuse,
Margarita Forbalierre, at whose feet all Europe has worshipped since the beginning
of her continental tour, has sailed for the United States, where she will go to Alderson,
VVest Virginia, in search of inspiration, as Paris has proved something of a bore to
the delicately atuned, artistic temperament."
