For the post three years ACHS has been experiencing an intense period of growth. Often working through an organization or with the com- munity, students at Alleghany strive to serve in any way they can. Through their service they gain valuable spiritual enlight- enment and self understanding which tends to promote healthier attitudes and stronger friendships among the students. Courses of study at ACHS help to increase the students ' ability to reason and to think tor themselves. These courses teach them an awareness of the world and the people in it. There are many organizations at ACHS which the students may join. Although these clubs and associations have many beneficial purposes, they all indirectly instill a feeling of social ease and maturity in their members. Probably the most obvious form of growth at Alleghany is actual physical development. After three years of watching each other progress through the grades, the students find it surprising and sometimes humorous to compare their rates of growth and their increasing physical abilities. Courses of study have expanded, enrollment has increased, activities have e nlarged in number, and students have grown in wisdom, as well as in stature. Alleghany has grown, is grow- ing, and will continue to grow as long as there are students and teachers willing to promote this growth. 3 spiritual Growth at Alleghany is Encouraged by Sponsored by the Latin club, the annual Christ- mas pageant inspires a feeling of religious sig- nificance during the holiday season. Mary Catherine Wicker, Mike Logan, and Robert Alan Fridley portray a scene from the pageant, " Why the Chimes Rang " . Cherie Davis, with the ex- pert guidance of Miss Eliza- beth Smith, stands proudly beside the portrait which she painted of Alleghany ' s mascot. This portrait was dedicated to the school dur- ing a special assembly and now hangs in the school gymnasium. Students assist in preparing the Christmas baskets to which the entire student body contributed for distribution throughout Alle- ghany County. 4 Spiritual growth is the greatest farm of expan- sion mankind must face. How a person faces this task and adjusts to it is one aspect of maturity. Everyone must strive to find his own means of acquiring spiritual maturity. Spiritual growth around ACHS has many con- notatians. Congeniality and friendliness are the pass words for Alleghany students. Due to the wonderful social atmosphere which the students and teachers present, a feeling of ease and harmony completely dominates life at ACHS. School spirit is definitely a big factor around ACHS. There ' s always an electric spark in the air before the big game. Alleghany ' s cheerleaders have done a superior job of kindling and sparking this spirit. Tension mounts throughout the seaso n as games are won, or lost, or whatever the final result may be. At Christmas time, the yuletide spirit prevails. Christmas spirit is carried out in the annual Christ- mas pageant and also through the donation of baskets of food for needy families throughout Alleghany County. Organizations and Activities within the School. Directed by Mrs. Flora Thompson, the choir adds a note of Christmas spirit during the yuletide season. 5 Mental Achievement is Primary Goal Mr. Walker takes his time in noticing Sandra Dressier awaiting with a problem. Donnie Wheatley and Dennis Harmon look on in amusement at the whole situation. 6 at Alleghany County High School. Sheryl Bridges, Becky Bush, and Linda Reynolds are concentrating on one of Mr. Carpenter ' s math tests. Betty Blake and David Smith use resource materials in the library while working on their term papers. The smiles on the faces of James Kelly, Eliza- beth Patterson, Lewis Deisher, and James Arrington show that learning can be enjoyable as well as educational. Knowledge touches man os a doe touches her newborn fawn — lovingly, yet with respect. This respect is for man ' s ability to comprehend life and to meet its challenges. A.C.H.S. offers students a key, which, if used to the fullest of their ability, will unlock the door to life. Varied are these keys. Physics, Industrial Arts, Latin, Distributive Education, Chemistry, and Home Economics are a few of the ones from which students may select. Mental growth is most actively stimulated by the exchanging of ideas in a free and attentive atmosphere. A.C.H.S. offers such an atmosphere to its students because of the genuine interest which the faculty has in the ideas and beliefs of the studerTs. Classmates are encouraged to dis- cuss conflicting principles in their different sub- jects. Constructive criticism is widely used in classes. This allows students to build a new foundation instead of continually tearing down their old one. As a small brook wears the rough pebbles with- in it to a smoother finish, throughout the eons of time, so will higher education smooth the intel- lectual ability of Alleghany ' s students. Time and growth are simultaneous processes. As time moves on, so will the present group of Alleghany ' s students. But there will always be a new group of young individuals waiting for the privilege to learn and to conquer the unknown. 7 Social Activities Encourage Participation and One of the many activities that ACHS offers sfudents is the Spanish Club. Here, the Spanish Club listens to a report by Anthony Salyers, Thaddea Chamberlain, and Mrs. Sumner. Keith Scruggs, Cynthia Peters, Wayne Carter, and Leigh Thrasher are caught in the mood of the Homecoming Dance. Adults, as well as sfu- dents, cheer the baseball team on to yictory in a close game with Clifton Forge. 8 Stimulate Interest Outside the Classroom Relaxing for a few minutes in front of the school on a bright Wallace, Brenda McCauley, Linda Kellison, Glenn Minnix, and winter day are Barney Butler, Artie Morris, Joyce Loan, Doug Nancy Lucas. Social development begins to blossom during a student ' s high school life. Bodies progress from adolescence to adulthood during this period. Stu- dents ' mental capacities flourish while in high school. Thus, it is only natural that these young adults de- sire to know their contemporaries as well as them- selves. Alleghany County High School offers many social events through which students may become better acquainted. Dances are the prime source of social entertain- ment at ACHS. These may be either school sponsored or club sponsored dances. Dancing provides the young adults with an activity in which they may creatively express themselves. Escaping the books for a while is another advantage of school dances. Mental alert- ness as well as social growth is aided by relaxation. Athletic events also furnish a welcome social gath- ering place for students. Here they join together, one for all and all for one and yell for their Colts. Many times these two social events are combined to offer ACHS students an entire evening of enjoy- ment. Classes at Alleghany County High Schoo l also aid in the development of social fulfillment. Students are given every possible opportunity to express their ideas freely and openly. Conflicting opinions are also readily recognized. From class discussions a student may find another student who shares his interests and his ideas. People mingling with people in an atmosphere of fun and relaxation provide a small means of escape for every human being. America ' s democracy allows everyone to have a social freedom. This freedom allows each person to choose, for a friend, the person who he believes would best suit his own individual taste. ACHS permits its students to seek social freedom. Relationships which are discovered at ACHS are des- tined to be lifetime friendships. 9 Physical Fitness is Emphasized As Part Of The 1 f i H..L L, J p «. . .1 r ■ 1 1 ■ ' ' ■ i • : t IT j- ' ; r -L J i 1 M ipj Mr. Jonas seems a bit amused while recording Bonnie Basham ' s weight. John Showalter seems to shore Mr. Jonas ' s amusement. Bettie Downey appears slightly in awe of Bob Noffsinger as he towers over her. Proving that physical fitness is important in developing good mental and physical health, Glenn Mays demonstrates excel- lent form in weight lifting. 10 Overall Physical Education Program at Alleghany Class against class! This is the highlight of Alleghany ' s competitive physical contests. Sen- iors are out to show their superiority. Under- classmen are hopeful of victory because of their " youthful " spirit. Straining every muscle in their bodies, these young athletes begin the competi- tion. Victory is sweet to the victors, but it is sweeter to the losers. These losers are ready to " revenge " their loss. Alleghany County High School prepares its students for every aspect of later life. Mental awareness is stimulated by physical activity. Pre- paring the body as well as the mind, gives stu- dents the opportunity to derive the fullest benefits from their high school education. A.C.H.S. offers athletics of many varied fields to its students. Equipment of the highest quality is also provided for them. Coaches aid the stu- dents by providing both incentive and profes- sional help. The future is ready to accept those young adults who are prepared physically as well as mentally. Being prepared physically heightens a student ' s awareness of his surroundings. Alle- ghany County High School generates a sense of responsibility for physical fitness in the personali- ties of its students. Up, down, up, down, two, three, four . . . these are familiar sounds in Miss Carter ' s phys. ed. classes. Exercises are a most important part of Alleghany ' s physical fitness program. Exerting strength, power, and agility, Homer Loan displays perfect co-ordination in the broad jump. Bobby Irving is being brought down by an opposing player in the Rockbridge game as his fellow teammates try to open the way for him. Miss Gleason gives time, service, and self Mjss Lucy Gleason First in Miss Gleason ' s daily routine is checking her mailbox. " Class, do I detect something other than Latin going on? " These are familiar words that are often heard in Miss Lucy Gleason ' s Latin class. With the years of experience she has had in teaching young people, she has become very aware of what goes on among them. Miss Glea- son is one who searches for and finds only the best in people. No student of Miss Gleason ' s has ever successfully completed a course taught by her without being both enlightened and in- spired by the interest and concern she con- stantly shows to each of her students. Miss Gleason will always be remembered as one of the few teachers whose problems, wor- ries, and tensions are never carried into the classroom, in teaching, she seems to possess an unlimited supply of patience. When the final bell rings, her day does not end, because her life as a teacher has always been a full time job. Her dedication to youth and education wih serve as a guideline for others who wish to in- struct, guide, and encourage young people. Miss Gleason ' s deep understanding and con- sideration have won her the love and respect of the students of ACHS. Next year, her students will miss seeing her enter class with the familiar briefcase and hearing, " Oh, my mercy dear, " as she ex- presses her exhaustion from climbing the stairs. Althgugh she will be gone, those of us for- tunate enough to have been taught by her shall never forget her. Miss Gleason has truly done more than her share to help high school stu- dents throughout Alleghany County. Her tire- less effort and sincere interest in her students will keep her memory alive in our hearts. It is to one of those rare individuals whose actions, words, thoughts, and deeds have brought joy and happiness to countless num- bers of people that the ALCOVA staff and the students of ACHS dedicate the 1966 ALCOVA. to teach young people in Alleghany County Study hall is one of the many time consuming elements in Miss Gleason ' s school day. With a pensive expression she signs library permits for Jack Kelly and James McGaha. Miss Gleason appears very much at home standing be- hind her desk. Although Miss Gleason has a busy schedule, she always finds time to give extra help. tnormi ' Gosh [ wish I were the teacher instead of the student. Moiybe 1 wouldn ' t have to study qU the time. " Many students hove made this comment ot one time or another, but how very wrong they art. Alleghany ' s faculty will agree that much time and work, are necessary outside of tba classroom. For a week before the students start back to school the teachers ore olreody at school making preparations for the year ahead. After school is out for the students, the teachers are still working to complete the year ' s records. Throughout the year teochers must find time to make lesson plans, tests, and quizzes. Papers must be graded, grades overoged, and report cords filled out. Need- less to say, alt this work must be done out- side of the regular school day. The teochers at Alleghany devote their time willingly ond enthusiosticolly to completing their work promptly and correctly. If time slips up on them, without hesitotion other faculty mem- bers volunteer to help to finish the work. There IS on outstandlf g student-faculty relationship at Alleghany. Many faculty mem- bers are interested m the students ' well- being ond generol ottitude as well as in their acodemic performance. Students find them- selves drawn to their teochers for friendship and advice. Working together, students ond faculty give Alleghany a worm otmospherg for working and studying As Mrs. Sdiali signs in, Mr. Wililoms, Mr. Duff, and Mrs, Shelor ffnjoy a good joke ot rhe expense of Mr. Jstfriaf, k ' Alleghany County School Board Makes Pohcies When people join together to work for a common goal, there must be some governing force involved. Alleghany County schools have a policy making committee in their School Board. This group of peo- ple is responsible for the schools ' administration, budget, and employees. It is the intention of the School Board to improve the quality of education in Alleghany County through up-to-date equipment, improved facilities, and capable teachers. Members of the Board keep close contact with the administra- tive personnel in each school in order to maintain a constant awareness of the needs of each school. Belonging to the School Board requires a lot of time and unwavering good judgment. Those mem- bers who have been able to give invaluable service to the Board deserve much credit. Mr. C. M.

" May I see Mr. Cvizic? " This question is heard many times dur- ing the day because Mr. Cvizic is the most-sought-after person at ACHS. There are many decisions that must be made within the school that cannot be finally de- cided without Mr. Cvizic ' s ap- proval. Even though Mr. Cvizic is a constantly busy person, he still finds time to mingle with the stu- dents and to get to know as many of them as possible. He has that admirable ability to remember names, faces, and events which is a valuable asset to a man in Mr. Cvizic ' s position. Mr. Dusan Cvizic, Principal Concord College, A.B.

Answer the telephone, fill out tardy slips, check the mail, deliver a mes- sage, compile the absentee report, type a letter — all these and more are the daily tasks that must be performed in the school office. Working in the of- fice can be tedious and time-consum- ing, but it can also be fun. The at- mosphere ranges from pleasant and re- laxing to hectic and nerve-wracking. Due to the expert supervision of Mrs. McCaleb and Mrs. Snead plus the will- ing help of the office staff, no major calamites have occurred in the office this year. Work has been completed promptly and duties have been carried out efficiently. Mrs. Dora McCaleb Secretary Mrs. Ellen Snead Secretary 19 Fine Arts Department emphasizes specific areas Mr. Leonard W.

Mr. Baber places emphasis on acquiring specific skill in playing musical instruments with practice in sight reading, ear training, and rhythm. Miss Smith works to train and develop the creative artist. After the first year, work becomes more highly creative and students have an opportunity to expand into more highly technical work, such as graphic arts, scratch- boards, and silk screen. Mrs. Thompson trains her vocalists to enunciate and to use their voices properly so as to produce the best effect. Miss Wolfe trains library assistants in the correct use of the library so that they can instruct others. Miss Wolfe is known for her willingness to help students and faculty to solve any literary problem which might arise. Miss Smith instructs Darlene Gunn as Doug Wallace looks- on.

English at ACHS is divided into two courses of study, general and college preparatory. The general course prepares the students who are not going to college with the basic fundamentals of oral and written communication which they will need in their chosen vocations. More advanced ideas and more probing philosophies are studied within the college preparatory Eng- lish classes. Combined efforts of the department prepare the students through liter- ary studies for special assembly programs throughout the year. The English Department also encourages participation in the various essay contests which the schools are asked to enter. i Mrs. Ann T. Barton Indiana University, A.B.

The paved area at the back of the gym makes possible more outdoor activities such as volleyball and " Tinkiling. " Some of the other activities provided by the Physical Education Department are baseball, horseshoes, and various calisthentics. An important part of the department is the Physical Fitness Test required by the state to be taken in the spring and fall. The results of this test are compared statewide. Miss Sybil M.

This department is designed to acquaint the stu- dent with different types of office machines and their appropriate use in business organizations, as well as to develop skill in the use of these machines. Students develop typewriting and dictation speed and accuracy, and learn to apply these skills in business. Among the experiences provided are visits to lo- cal businesses, discussions with supervisory person- nel, and development of good leadership techniques. In conjunction with the Business Department is the FBLA. The business teachers are in charge of this association and through membership in the club, the students gain valuable information relating to the field of business that would be impossible to bring out in the classroom.

Students learn proper use and care of equipment, safety precautions, the ability to follow directions, as well as patience and coordination. To add a bit of variety to the courses, each year the Homemaking Department exchanges students with the Industrial Arts Department for one week. This switch often proves to be humorous as well as helpful. Another very useful course in the Practical Arts Department is driver ' s training, taught by Mr. Mitch- ell. Students taking driver ' s training learn proper handling, care, and use of an automobile. Mrs. Jane Harmon Madison College, B.S. Homemaking Sponsor, Future Homemakers of America Mr. Robert C.

At Alleghany there are many rewards for outstanding academic achievement. Those students who are able to combine leadership ability with their high academic standards often have unlimited opportunities awaiting them. Students exhibiting these qualities are elected to go to Girls ' or Boys ' State, to be exchange students, or to hold offices in the organizations at ACHS. There ore contests sponsored by ogencies throughout the state of Virginio, and the na- tion, for those students who excel in parti- cular fields. Competition ranges from essay contests to science fairs. Teachers urge stu- dents to take advantage of all these oppor- tunities open to them, so that they may gain valuable experience and possibly win scholar- ships or funds for college. Students may win prizes throughout their high school years for their performance in various fields of interest, but final compen- sation for the hours of work is gained when seniors receive awards at groduation for out- standing achievement in each field of study.

There are sock hops after the games, informal " get togethers, " formals, and even a " Sadie Howkins " donee which re- verses normal dating procedures. Cliniaxing the year ' s dances is the Junior-Senior Prom. This is the most formal, best planned donee of the year and provides a very dramatic conclusion for the yeor ' s social activities. For the entertainment of the school ond community, the seniors get together to pro- duce a play. Miss Becky Thompson is the director, but the play itself is entirely in the hands of the senior efoss. Another highlight of the yeor is the selec- tion of Miss Alcova for 1966. Senior girls compete with one another for this highly prized title. This year the entire student body worked with Mrs. Flora Thompson and the choir in order to make " My Fair Lady " a tremendous success. This musical comedy brought much recognition and praise to Alleghany because of the professional appearance of the entire product ion. As the yeor ends there are activities sche- duled only for seniors. The senior banquet provides an excellent opportunity for the doss to meet together in a relaxed atmos- phere and to enjoy each other ' s company. Practicing for the ceremonies and actual participation in the graduation exercises draw the class even closer together and help to give them a feeling of companionship that they do not soon forget. Leading the grand march at the Junior-Senior Prom are Linda Cfoas, Jim Milter, Geneva Copp$, Homer Loon, N ' ancy Lucas, Ronnie Wilhelm, Alice Howard, and iKenny CarroiL Homecoming Day Began The Year’s Festivities As Judy Bazzarre, Joyce Loan, Cherie Davis, Katny Taylor, Mary Andrews and Sandra Dressier prepared for their presentation in the assembly, the air was tense with excitement. Glen Mays, Sandra Ward, Nancy Lucas, Bonnie Basham and Frankie Dobbins were among those students who helped to decorate for the Homecoming Dance. Joyce Loan, Cherie Davis, Kathy Taylor, Judy Bazzarre, Sandra Dressier and Mary Andrews paused in front of the stands before the crowning of the Homecoming Queen. 46 Kathy Taylor Reigned As Homecoming Queen Homecoming activities began with a combined assembly and pep rally in which candidates for Homecoming Queen were presented to the student body. Following the assembly the students returned to homerooms to make their choice of candidates. Throughout the day the decoration committee continued work on the gym in preparation for the dance. At half-time of the football game, much to the delight of the fans, Kathy Taylor was crowned Homecoming Queen for 1965. " Where The Action Is " was the theme of the Homecoming Dance and decorations were in the traditional red, white, and blue. In keeping with the theme, there was a colt in a " go-go cage " on either side of the bandstand. Adding to the excitement was the Queen ' s Dance in which she and her escort were joined by the court and their escorts. All of these activities helped to renew the pride of the returning alumni and to strengthen the spirit of the student body. Mr. Robert Sams, President of the Athletic Association, crowned Homecoming Queen Kathy Taylor. Homecoming candidates and their escorts, Judy Bazzarre, John Stinnett; Joyce Loan, Artie Morris; Kathy Taylor, Ron- nie Wilhelm; Sandra Dressier, Homer Loan; Donnie Wheat- ley, Mary Andrews; Cherie Davis and John Showalter, danced during the Queen ' s Dance. ACHS Seniors Artfully Demonstrated Dramatic Cornelia and Emily were charmed by the Admiral until they found that he was re- turning their unwanted " safety-pockets " . " Our Hearts Were Young and Gay, " a delightful performance by the senior class, proved entertain- ing to all who attended. As the plot developed, two American girls were seeking social refinement on a trip to Paris. In their attempts to display worldly sophistication, Cornelia Otis Skinner and Emily Kim- brough became involved in situations ranging from humiliating to hilarious. Supporting roles were well cast and added greatly to the presentation. Among the minor roles Madame Elise, played by Brenda McCauley, was French in appearance, accent and behavior. Judy Smith as Cornelia ' s overprotective mother, and Martin Nicely as her witty father were also outstanding. Sandra Dressier and Kathy Taylor developed cultured British accents which they carried throughout the ploy. After Emily confessed that she had killed a man, Cornelia at- tempted to console her. 48 Ability In “Our Hearts Were Young And Gay” Cast in Order of Appearance Steward Mrs. Skinner Cornelia Otis Skinner Otis Skinner Emily Kimbrough . . . .

As Leo began to put on his shoes, the Purser, Dick, the Stewardess and Cornelia looked on helplessly. 49 Anticipation Of Coming Holidays Grew, Jedy Sartain, Connie Shires, Darlene Gunn, Vicki Reed, Betty Miller and Frank Robinson relaxed during intermission. 50 As Students Enjoyed The Christmas Formal Rob Nahouse, Sandra Simmons, Roger Daniel and Betty Bush en- joyed refreshments around the fireplace. Girls with dreamy looks in their eyes, boys with the holiday spirit, soft music with o Christmas fla- vor, and glittering paper snowflakes typified Alle- ghany ' s Christmas Formal of 1965. " Icecapades " was the theme and the mood was set upon entering the school. In the trophy case was a miniature frozen lake complete with skaters and snow. At the refreshment table there was a glow- ing fireplace giving the impression of a small lodge near a frozen lake. Streamers of blue and white, and a mural of skating scenes surrounding the gym added the crispness of winter to the atmosphere. At the close of the dance, everyone wished each other a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and began to look forward to coming events of the season. 51 Gary Miller, Susan Mason, Haybee Walker, Kathy Taylor and Naomi Halsey danced to a lively number. Mary Andrews and Donnie Wheatley Were Named Mary Andrews, Donnie Wheat- ley, Betty Miller, Greg Foun- taine, Keith Scruggs and Sher- ry Howard enjoyed the dance in honor of the King and Queen. Lin Reed, Dale Peters, Sherry Shorter, John Showalter, Shoron Sizemore, and Dennis Harmon took a break to watch the dancing. 52 Queen And King Of The Sweetheart Dance Alleghany ' s Sweetheart Dance of 1966 was sponsored by the Senior Tri-Hi-Y. Five senior boys were nominated by the Key Club to run for Sweetheart King and the Tri-Hi-Y nomi- nated five senior girls to run for Sweetheart Queen. By vote of the student body, Mary Andrews and Donnie Wheatley were chosen Sweetheart Queen and King. " Hearts and Flowers on Parade " provided an appropriate theme which was carried out in refreshments and decorations. Red hearts and pink daisies lined the sides of the gym and a huge pink heart decorated the end opposite the bandstand. Appropriate music was pro- vided by the Jades. Decorations and music combined tended to put everyone who attended in a romantic mood. Mr. Cvizic and Judy Bazzarre rewarded Donnie Wheatley and Mary Andrews who were chosen Sweetheart King and Queen. Candidates for Sweetheart King and Queen were Hunter Fridley, Linda Parham, Dale Peters, Linda Kellison, Donnie Wheatley, Mary Andrews, Allen Downey, Geneva Capps, John Show- alter, and Bonnie Basham. 53 Sadie Hawkins departed from usual tradition Mandy Noffsinger and George Morris admired each other ' s out- landish garb. " Grab your partner and circle right. All join hands and promenade! " Familiar square dance calls and music created the " Dogpatch " scene for this year ' s Sadie Haw- kins Dance. In the weeks before Sadie Hawkins night, tradition was reversed as boys awaited invitations to the dance from girls. To establish a zany mood, the admission was set at one quarter, two dimes, one nickel, and thirteen pennies. As the students began to arrive, it was apparent that a contest for best-dressed would be hard to judge. However, this decision was made and at 9:13, Mandy Noffsinger and George Morris were given the distinctive honor of " best-dressed in Dogpatch " . Prizes were also given to Paul Warwick and Genia Gunn who were the thirteenth couple to arrive. At many very informal dances, those who attend do most to create the atmosphere, and Alleghany ' s Sadie Hawkins Dance for 1966 was certainly no e xception. Fun was the byword, as everyone there would agree. Velma Jean Coffey, Paul Warwick, Genia Gunn, and Jerry Dodson departed from the ordinary dances for o more ap- propriate one — The Virginia Reel. Gwen Fisher, Debbie Fisher, Richard Van Lear and Beverly Schmidt changed styles from a square dance to more mod- ern dances. 54 Sock hops supplied entertainment after games Thaddea Chamberlain, Ralph White- head, and Jim Faidley appeared to en- joy the FBLA sock hop. David Rollison, Joyce Keren, Leon Middleton and Con- nie Shires looked confused by the new dance steps. Frank Hayslett and Vicki Rose danced during a sock hop sponsored by the Senior Tri-Hi-Y. " Have you seen my shoes? I can ' t remem- ber where I left them. " Questions such as this were often heard at sock hops which were held after Alleghany ' s football and basket- ball games. Often, students from opponent schools were invited to stay after the games and get to know their rivals. During the year, many organizations furnished records and sponsored these dances. Though they often lasted only two hours, the sock hops proved both enjoyable to students, and profitable to the sponsors. Sharon Sizemore and Steve Stull engaged in a faster dance. 55 Thaddea Chamberlain, Penny Burch, Jim Faidley, Je- anne Walton and John Bradley slowed down to a more relaxing tempo. Senior Banquet was the beginning of the end Jim Miller, President of the Senior Class, made appropriate comments during the Senior Banquet. Those seated at the table are Mr. Cvizic, Mrs. Cvizic, Mrs. Duff, Mr. Duff, Mrs. Bush, and Miss Hoover. Foreground: Judy Smith, Wanda Steele, Sheila Switzer and Sandra Ward. Members of the Sen- ior Class enjoyed a few moments of in- formal chatting be- fore the dancing be- gan. Seniors enjoyed danc- ing after o delicious meal. To begin their last series of school so- cial functions, the Class of 1966 held its senior banquet in Alleghany Country Club. First on the program was a delicious smorgasbord with a vast display of food. Later, the seniors enjoyed an accordion duet by Joanne White and Lena Tyree, danced, and simply enjoyed being with their classmates. This, their first informal class social function, gave the seniors a chance to get to know their fellow seniors better and to appreciate the friendships which had lasted through the years. At the end of an enjoyable evening filled with good food and fellowship, the seniors could realize more fully the value of this fast closing chapter in their lives. Joanne White and Lena Tyree supplied en- tertainment for the Senior Banquet. 57 Prom Theme for 1966 was “Gone Are The Days” Surely, one of the most memorable social events for the juniors and seniors of 1966 was the prom. It required more preparation than any other of the year ' s dances, and to those who ap- preciated its finality, it held more meaning than any other. For seniors, their last high school so- cial function emphasized the scarcity of the re- maining time in their last year of high school. For juniors, the prom brought excitement, plan- ning, and effort to please their predecessors. " Gone Are the Days " , the theme, was sup- ported by murals of plantation scenes depicting days gone by in the South. Also, contributing to the Southern atmosphere were the bridge lead- ing through a rose arbor into the gym, a stone well located in the center of the floor, a river boat at one end of the gym and a life-size out- door scene at the other end. Refreshments, also in keeping with the theme, consisted of mint julep, shortening bread, ginger bread, cotton balls, and watermelon candy. Highlighting the evening were the grand march and the crowning of king, queen, prince and princess of the Prom. King and queen were Parker Tingler and Kathy Taylor, with John Bradley and Betty Bush crowned prince and princess. For their entertainment, Betty Deaton sang " Summertime " , and John Owens as Uncle Remus told the story of the " tar-baby " . As the end of the evening approached, every- one knew that the relaxed Southern pace would not continue much longer. Exams and the end of another school year were coming soon and the seniors faced many drastic changes; but, everyone who attended the prom of 1966, knew also that it could not soon be forgotten. Edward Steger and Kathy Taylor smiled in anticipation of o beautiful prom. Libby Wheeler and Lee Gordon crossed the bridge into post days in the South and entered the prom. Julie Tigrett, Monte Hyler, Bill Hawkes and Joyce Scott watched the entertainment at the prom as the Nachez steamed up the river in the background. 59 Joy Voss and Parker Tingler, Mary Andrews and Donnie Wheat- ley, Judy Bazzarre and Allen Dow- ney, Lin Reed and Dale Peters, Sharon Sizemore and John Sho- walter looked solemn as they took part in the grand march. David Smith and Shirley Botsford danced as the " In Crowd " played on the veranda of a southern mansion. John Bradley, prince; Parker Tingler, king; Kathy Taylor, queen; and Betty Bush, princess, pre- pared to begin the dance in their honor. One of the biggest attractions of the prom this year was a rustic wishing well in the center of the gym. It was con- structed in a way so that it might resem- ble stone, and was decorated with wis- teria. It also helped to create an outdoor atmosphere and seemed to be located in the center of a formal garden surrounded by Southern mansions. Often during the evening, as couples walked around to see the scenery they stopped to look at the well and perhaps to make a wish. If they wished for an enjoyable evening their wishes must have been successful because every one left with memories which would be cherished. Penny Burks, Allen Tucker, Geneva Capps and Homer Loan stopped to admire the realistically constructed well. 61 First row: Patricia Kirby, Paul Richmond, Barbara Lemon, Dale Peters, Jeanne Eggleston, Greg Fountaine, Mary Andrews, John Showalter, Sandra Dressier, Martin Nicely, Betty Blake, Jim Bowen, Lena Tyree, Dennis Harmon.

How con the emotions of seniors at graduation be expressed? Various feelings ranging from uncontrollable joy to sentimental unbelief fill their minds. They have reached a point in their lives at which decisions are the prime task. Now they must put f everything in order and prepare to embark upon a completely | new way of life. f Regardless of the present feelings and future plans of the seniors they each feel a certain pride in themselves and in their fellow seniors. After twelve years of school life, each of which went by faster than the previous one, they move their tassels and become alumni of Alleghany County High School. i! ti I i 63 Mrs. John Hamlet, Chairman of the school board, greeted those present at graduation exercises. Mr. Holbert presented Mike Wolfe with the salutatory award. One of Mr. Hodnett ' s many pleasant duties is his annual address to the graduating class. Denn the Goal. is Harmon, Valedictorian, spoke to seniors on " Success: Our Life ' s Commencement exercises began with the last procession of the senior class into the auditorium. Reverend Price Nor- man Moore offered the invocation, followed by the saluta- tory address, " The Importance of Education " by Mike Wolfe. Mrs. John Hamlett extended greetings from Alleghany Coun- ty School Board after which the presentation of special awards was made by Mr. Charles W. Holbert. These awards included an academic superlative from each department, D.A.R. good citizenship awards, and " 1 Dare You " awards to the outstanding girl and boy graduates. Following the pres- entation of awards, Mr. Walter L. Hodnett, Superintendent of Alleghany County Schools, addressed the seniors. " You ' ll Never Walk Alone, " a solo by Allen Tucker, was followed by the valedictory address, " Success: Our Life ' s Goal, " by Dennis Harmon. Next came the long awaited presentation of diplomas by Mr. Dusan Cvizic, principal, and Mr. Charles Walker. Reverend Moore closed the service with the bene- diction after which the seniors left the auditorium, graduates of Alleghany County High School. Mary Walton, John Swartz, Connie Shires, Becky Anderson, David Smith, Sue Wolfe, Alice Howard, Bruce Kesterson, Donna Kelly, Paula Sizemore, and Paula Sue Traylor were the Junior Honor Marshals. After the seniors had moved their tassels, Mr. Cvizic pronounced them graduates of Alle- ghany County High School. With solemn expressions, the seniors left the auditorium for the last time. 67 After study and deliberation judges named Each year students at ACHS anxiously await the selection of the senior girl who will be named Miss Alcova. This year, each senior was asked to nominate twelve senior girls whom they thought best repre- sented Alleghany in all aspects of school life, plus attractiveness in personality and appearance. Of all the girls nominated, the twelve who received the most nominations were asked to appear before a panel of five judges — two unbiased faculty members and three other well qualified citizens. " What would you have done if after you arrived tonight, your shoe heel had come off? " Questions such as this were asked to test the girls ' poise. They were also asked questions about current events, dat- ing habits, and school spirit. After talking with each girl, the judges awarded her with from one to five points in the following categories: general appear- ance, poise, general awareness, and school spirit. The five girls with the highest total points were Miss Al- cova and four runners-up. This year a new tradition was begun concerning the announcement of the winner and runners-up of the Miss Alcova contest. In former years the names of Miss Alcova and runners-up were not made public until the arrival of the Alcova in the fall. This year, however, during assembly a tapping ceremony was held and members of next year ' s annual staff tapped each winner with a rose. Twelve girls who received the most nominations from the zarre, Kathy Taylor; Middle step: Bonnie Basham, Mary senior class relaxed in the hall before their interviews.

Brenda McCauley, fourth runner-up; Sharon Sizemore, third runner-up; Sandra Dressier, Miss Alcova; Judy Bazzarre, second runner-up and Kathy Taylor, first runner-up. 69 Sandra Dressier Sandra Dressier was tapped with a dozen long stemmed red roses as Miss Alcova for 1966. Sandra has served as editor of the PATRIOT for two years and was head cheerleader this year. She also was an honor graduate and received a safe-driving award and the " I Dare You " award. First runner-up, Kathy Taylor was tapped with six roses. Kathy has been cheerleader for Alle- ghany for three years. She was also Homecoming Queen this year. Kothy Taylor Runners-up were all outstanding students Second runner-up to Miss Alcova was Judy Baz- zarre. Judy was President of the Senior Tri-Hi-Y and editor of the ALCOVA this year. She also re- ceived the D. A. R. citizenship award. Sharon Sizemore was tapped as third runner-up. Sharon was very helpful to Miss Wolfe in typing catalog cards, book orders and letters for the li- brary and thus received the Senior Academic Su- perlative Award for Library Science. She also rep- resented ACHS as a candidate for Dogwood Festi- val Queen. Fourth runner-up to Miss Alcova for 1966 was Brenda McCauley. Brenda served this year as President of the FBLA and was awarded the Senior Academic Superlative Award for Dramatics. She was also Alleghany County ' s candidate to the Miss Virginia Pageant.

Before school starts, the football team practices daily in order to build up their abil- ity and stamina. Football season lasts through- out the fall and many boys find this particular sport to their liking, After school gets storted, the cross-coun- try team is organized. This team is for those boys who enjoy running for long distances at a time. Those boys who wish to build up their individual endurance find this sport partic- ularly beneficial. Before football season ends the basketball and teams have been organized and are ready to begin their seoson. This year a girls ' basketball team has been orgonized and the girls who participote find the sport chal- lenging, but fun. Baseball and track follow basketball and bring the year to a close. Throughout the year there are sports for everyone ' s toste. Even the girls con enjoy cheerleading os well as basketball. One of the outstanding features of the athletic program at Alleghany is that there are sports for all age groups. In addition to the already established varsity and junior varsity squads, this yeor saw the organization of eighth grade football, basketball, and cheer leading teams. Gary Mifler carries the boll for Alleghony while Dobbins, Whitehead (24), and Scruggs race along the court with him. Opponent players from Riverheads, Orebough (45), Almorode (25), Shifflett, and Davis move in, hoping for Q! steal..

Captain Homer Loan (64) meets Wilson ' s co-captain Jim Clark (15) before the game. After winning its first three games, Alleghany High School ' s Colts lost five of its remaining six games and tied one. Its first game was an away contest with VSD; ACHS won 20-0. ACHS defeated Riverheads the following week 13-0. In its first home game of the season, Alleghany defeated James River by a stunning score of 39-0. Fans were astounded by the breath-taking runs, key intercep- tions, and the display of power which were believed to be lacking at the beginning of the season; however, the next six games de- stroyed the reputation the team had built for itself in its first three outings. 74 Loan Receives National Recognition Huddling together before the game begins, the team listens to some last minute instructions from the coach, and spends several seconds in individual thought. When the huddle breaks, each team member ' s spirit is renewed and he is ready for the opposition. Alleghany ' s Homer Loan kicks off to begin the Covington game. Ralph Whitehead (42), Homer Loan (64), and Artie Morris (12) attempt to stop (Zlifton ' s Alfred Jeter (23). 75 1 Blair Wilhelm (10) gains valuable yardage in the game with Wilson ' s Green Hornets. Larry Bartley (70) and Homer Loan (64) First, the biggest blow came from a seemingly weak Clifton Forge team as it handed ACHS its first defeat (18-0). Alleghany tried to regain its power the next week, but was set back by Buffalo Gap (19-7). In a hard fought game at Fort Defiance, ACHS battled to a dis- puted 13-13 deadlock. ACHS was defeated in its next two contests. Covington defeated the Colts 32-6, and Rockbridge spoiled the hope for a successful home- coming game (20-7). In the season finale, Wilson Memorial ' s Green Hornets defeated ACHS 20-0. At the end of a disappointing season, honors were granted some of the deserving Colts. Homer Loan and Donnie Wheatley were placed on the All-District 5 team and Charles Hunnell, Steve Crawford, and Ralph Whitehead gained honorable mention. Homer Loan, for the second consecutive year, was placed on the All-State team and also received honorable mention on the Prep All- American squad. 76 John Stinnett (20) converges on Jeff Anderson of Clifton in on effort to tackle him. Alfred Jeter (23) approaches the goal line as Donnie Wheatley attempts to stop him Junior Varsity shows hustle and desire, First row: T. Stinnett, C. Smith, B. Dodd, C. Atkins, G. Brough- man, W.

Wolfe, D. Griffith, J. Wood, L. Humphries, D. Stull, G. Swaim, G. Morris. Although Alleghany ' s Junior Varsity had a disap- pointing year, these boys gained valuable experience necessary for sucessful varsity squads. Their record was 0-5-1; however, three of their games were lost by a small number of points. Alleghany played Clifton Forge and Covington, losing both games by scores of 12-0 and 8-0, respectively. In the next game ACHS tied James River 12-12, but in its following outing, the J.V. team was defeated in a close 2-0 contest by Covington. Clifton squeaked by the little Colts a second time by a score of 7-6, and Valley was the final spoiler as they defeated ACHS 19-0. Coach Jefferies and Coach Scott turned in remarkable jobs of advising and encouraging the members of their team. Throughout the season these boys showed hustle and desire, but lack of experience proved to be a deciding factor in the outcome of the season. 78 but inexperience spoils success of season Gary Swaim (40) gains valuable yardage as Joe Wood (75) and Dickie Griffith provide the blocking. Tommy Stinnett is brought down by Gary Gibson (16) of Covington. 79 First Eighth Grade Team Was Organized First row: Bill Siple, Jonathan Williams, Coach Williams. Second row: Kenny Burks, Joe Massie, Mike Balser, Ronnie Bennett, Johnnie Snead, Pat Sams, C. E. Andrews, Bill Young, Slick Mays, Wayne Van Buren, Gary Childs. Third row: Mike Patrick, Cary Alleghany ' s first eighth grade football team, coached by Mr. James David Williams, exhibited agility, power, and ability tor the future years at ACHS. Due to the late organization of the team, weather permitted time for only three games. In their first game the eighth grade played James River. These young Colts turned in a fine performance and coasted to an easy 26-7 victory. They next encoun- tered the Buffalo Gap J.V. ' s and came home with a 21-14 win over the Bisons. In their last game, the Reed, Bob McDowell, Tim Heironimus, Cecil Dodd, Sammy Mynes, Chris Leeds, Russell Willis, Bruce Topping, Gary Patter- son, Tim Rollison, Kirk Martin, Tim Maddy, Harry Smith, Wilton Stogdale, Walter Broughman. Colts trodded on rough territory and were handed their first and only defeat by the VSD Raiders in a 27-21 contest. During their initial year at Alleghany, the youngest Colt team showed great enthusiasm and sportsman- ship. They spent many hours in practice learning the basic fundamentals of the game and demonstrating their knowledge on the field. Their valuable experi- ence this year makes the future brighter for football teams at ACHS. 80 Young Colts Exhibited Skill On Gridiron Jonathan Williams (12) and Chris Leeds (60) run through a ploy in preparation for their first game. Tim Maddy, C. E. Andrews, and Bill Siple rush in on John Swartz. 81 Cross Country Team Breaks Even Wayne Harlow, Bruce Swartz, Dennis Rhea, Rick Littleton, Butch Mike Thompson, Leon Middleton, John Garrett, Jon Kilian, John Barineau, and Coach Lane, Rhea. During the 1965 season, Alleghany ' s cross country team had a record of four wins and four losses. ACHS was defeated in their first four meets (low score wins) by Andrew Lewis (15-44), Giles (17-42), Andrew Lewis (17-46), and Fort Defiance (16-45). Coach Rhea ' s team won its remaining four meets at the expense of Buffalo Gap (29-45), Riverheads (29-54), James River (15-50), and Northside (21-39). John Barineau set a school record over the new course, and Butch Lane finish- ed third in the district meet and sixth in the state meet. ACHS finished third in District 5, and eighth in the State meet, in an Invitational meet at William Mary, ACHS finished fourth in a field of sixteen. John Garrett, Leon Middleton, and Butch Lane relax after the District 5 meet. 82 Barineau Sets Record On New Course Alleghany ' s team displays its swiftness in a meet with James River. Butch Lane travels over a portion of the new course. 83 Excellent Performanee At District Tournament Crossing the field to meet Wilson Memorial ' s cheerleaders are Betty Bush, Vicki Reed, Linda Howard, Kathy Taylor, Sandra Dressier, Alice Howard, Frances Shifflett, Mary Beth Watson, Becky Bush. At ACHS, the Varsity Cheerleaders played a vital part in the school activities. During the summer, the group practiced many hours a week in order to perfect routines and new cheers. They also attended camp so that they could learn new ideas from other cheerleaders throughout the state. At the first football game, the cheerleaders delighted specta- tors with their precision and cheered the football team on to victory. Being a cheerleader meant a great deal of re- sponsibility. All cheers had to be taught to the stu- dent body and the morale had to be maintained when the athletic teams were not successful. At pep rallies, the cheerleaders entertained with skits be- fore the most important games and succeeded in building the spirit of students and players. As a result of their time and effort, Alleghany ' s Cheer- leaders brought back the cheerleading trophy from the District V tournament. Next year, a new squad will try to follow the path paved by this year ' s dis- trict champions. 84 Kathy Taylor patiently awaits the beginning of a cheer.

This year at Alleghany, a girls ' basketball team was organized. Miss Hoover and Miss Carter coached the team and maintained interest and spirit throughout the disappointing season. Most school districts have discontinued district competition in girls ' basketball, but several area teams compete against each other. ACHS played their first game with James River and lost 40-26. Milboro defeated ACHS in two overtimes by the score of 30-26. ACHS was again defeated by Clifton in a 25-17 contest, but posted a 24-1 1 victory over the C O Nurses. Valley upset Alleghany in their next two encounters by scores of 20-12 and 48-20. Alleghany was defeated a second time by both James River and Milboro with scor es of 54-12 and 49-31, re- spectively. In a return match with Clifton, ACHS lost 44-14, but closed their season with a victory over the C O Nurses. This season provided experi- ence for many girls who will be valuable members of next year ' s teem. 88 Inexperience Hurts Varsity Basketball Team Firsf row: John Swartz, Roy Swartz, Ralph Whitehead, Keith Scruggs, Homer Loan, Tommy Vess, Steve Crawford, Coach Walker, Second row: Gary Miller, Claude Scruggs, Steve Byerly, Dennis Rhea, Artie Morris, Frankie Dobbins. Coach Charles Walker ' s chargers returned to the basketball court with the hopes of gaining another winning season. Much to the delight of the public, ACHS won three of their first four games. In the initial game, the Colts were defeated by the Knights of James River. Following this defeat the Colts seem- ingly caught fire and tram pled over Riverheads (63- 54), Rockbridge (43-39), and VSD (43-41). Later in the season the Colts defeated Ft. Defiance 62-53. Through the remainder of the season the Colts were disappointed by a series of losses. Covington posted 98-57 and 73-42 wins over the Colts. Clifton, in two contests, set back the ACHS team by scores of 99-76 and 75-48. Buffalo Gap and Wilson Memorial also defeated Alleghany twice during the regular season. Rockbridge and VSD were able to get sweet revenge for earlier defeats and posted 51-36 and 58-47 vic- tories over the Colts. At the end of the season, Alle- ghany was tied with James River and Buffalo Gap, By the flip of a coin, James River moved into seventh place. ACHS played Buffalo Gap to determine who would hold sixth place. Alleghany won the suspense- packed game 57-51. In the tournament, the Colts dropped a hard-fought 53-51 battle to Rockbridge. This ended ail prospects of a successful season with a record of 6-12. This year was a rebuilding season for the Colts. Having lost their starting team last year, a new one had to be assembled to take its place. Numerous sophomores and juniors gained valuable experience on the court this year, and should be able to fill the spaces left vacant by Homer Loan, Ralph Whitehead, and Frankie Dobbins.

Greg Anderson grabs a rebound and is being assisted under the boards by Bruce Swartz (21) and Mike Sams. Compiling a record of 3-13, Alleghany ' s Junior Varsity basketball team had a disappointing season. Led by co-cap- tains Mike Sams and Bruce Swartz, and coached by Mr. Mitchell, the boys gained valuable experience in team mem- bership and individual training. In the first two games ACHS lost 67-43 in a contest with James River and 31-20 in an encounter with Rockbridge. VSD challenged the Colts and were defeated 31-29. In the next three games, the Colts were over-powered by Rockbridge, Covington, and Clifton Forge. Before losing to Wilson Memorial, ACHS beat Buffalo Gap 36-34 in an action-packed contest. Covington once again overcame the Colts, but the Colts stomped Boys ' Home 31-18. ACHS lost their remaining games to Buffalo Gap, VSD, Ft. Defiance, James River, and Boys ' Home. Besides learning the fundamentals of basketball, each boy was taught to conduct himself in the correct sportsmanlike manner. Due to this valuable experience the season was not completely unsuccessful. 92 In the opening moments of the gome, Randy Stair out jumps an opposing player. Greg Anderson (14), Bruce Swartz (21), and Randy Stair (31) witness another two points for the Colts. 93 Young Colts Demonstrate Outstanding Ability First row: Coach Jefferies, Gary Childs, Mike Sartain, Clinton Burks, Harvey Dobbins, Buster VanLear, Junior McCray, David Smith.

Joe Massie, Tim Maddy, Tim Heironimus, Timmy Rollison, Robert McDowell, Pat Sams, C. E. Andrews, Butch Simpson. Continuing their excellent performances from the gridiron, the baby Colts stunned eleven of the oppo- nents that they faced on the basketball court. These eighth graders delighted the spectators with fasci- nating moves, and amazed everyone with their scoring power. In the opening game, the eighth graders exhibited their ability against James River (44-33). Lord Bote- tourt provided more competition which resulted in a 25-23 win for the Colts. Arch-rival, Clifton Forge, was defeated 40-24. James River once again was beaten by a score of 53-38. Two District O teams played ACHS. Valley lost 48-32 and Milboro was trounced 60-12. Covington and Clifton, the next two victims, were downed 56-30 and 54-30, respectively. Valley, Covington, and Milboro were stampeded again by the Colts. In the last game of the season, playing without the service of five members of the team, ACHS was defeated 34-30 by Lord Botetourt. Due to the talent shown by these players, the future looks bright for Alleghany basketball teams. Next year the Junior Varsity will benefit from the numerous team leaders on this year ' s eighth grade squad. 94 And Show Potential For Future Years Butch Simpson (42) controls the tip os both teams anxiously await the beginning of the contest. 95 Originality And Vitality Symbolize First row: Peggy Hylton. Second row: Brenda Hayslett, Susan Persinger, Leigh Thrasher. Third row: Jean Shawver, Helen Bradley, Carol Thompson. Carol Thompson jumps in exhilaration after a cheer. Leading J.V. pep rallies, building the morale of underclassmen, and cheering for all Junior Varsity teams are the important roles fulfilled by our J.V. Cheerleaders. Their smiles and pleasant personalities demonstrated at all Junior Varsity games are an asset to any school. Much time is spent, however, in preparing cheers and skits to perfection. Almost any afternoon one can hear, " Two bits, four bits, " ringing through the halls of ACHS as the cheer- leaders practice for future games. 96 Personality Of Junior Varsity Cheerleaders Junior Varsity Cheerleaders delight spectators at the Labor Day Parade.

Grable Surber, David Rogers. Standing: Gary Bush, Jerome Davis, Carl Byer and Jon Kilian attempt a new hold at one of the practice sessions. Wrestling, a vigorou.s and exciting sport for the informed spectators, proved to be very disappointing to the Alleghany County High School team. Due to the scarcity of strong boys who had a working knowledge of wrest- ling fundamentals, the ACHS team lost each of its five matches. VSD, a very powerful team, grounded ACHS 52-3. Covington twice defeated Alle- ghany by scores of 41-15 and 41-10. ACHS lost a match to a strong Patrick Henry team by a score of 43-13. In their last match of the season, VSD once again defeated the Colts 39-15. Much enthusiasm and desire were exhibit- ed by every member of the team. Gary Bush, a second year letterman, completed his sea- son undefeated. Next year, each member will return with hopes for a more successful sea- son. 99 Colts Finish Season with 9-4 Record Clifton ' s first baseman, David Pollick, fails to get Bobby Brown out at first.

Bill McNabb Chosen “Most Valuable Player” After losing many experienced players at graduation, the ACHS baseball team faced the 1966 season with hope and the determination to win. Rockbridge and Wilson Memorial had pow- erful teams returning to the diamond this spring. Coach Jonas, after numerous changes, finally found a workable infield with the returning let- terman in the outfield. Outscoring their opponent 5-0, the Colts de- feated VSD in the opening game of the season, Wilson Memorial handed the Colts their first de- feat by a score of 12-5, in a game at Wilson. Seeking revenge the Colts beat the Green Hor- nets 5-4. Lord Botetourt, a weak Blue Ridge Dis- trict team, took advantage of numerous Colt er- rors, and sneaked past ACHS, 5-4. Alleghany exchanged victories with Rockbridge and Coving- ton, but beat Clifton Forge in both encounters with the Mounties. Near the end of the season, VSD, Lord Botetourt, and Fort Defiance were vic- tims of Colt victories. Alleghany ' s baseball season was highlighted by several outstanding accomplishments. In the first game played on the Colts own field, ACHS swept by Lord Botetourt, 17-3. Bill McNabb Homer Loan rounds first base hoping to tally an- other score. chosen by the local newspaper as the " Most Val- uable Player " in the area, ended the season with a batting average of .488. Keith Scruggs, the leading pitcher, had a record of four wins and one loss. Due to his leadership qualities in guid- ing the Colts to a 9-4 season. Coach Jonas was named " The Coach of the Year " .

Alleghany County High School ' s track team, after the loss through graduation of numerous track stars, began this year with a group of inexperienced boys. By the time the season had ended, however, the team showed ability and promise for next year ' s team. School records were broken in four events. Loan set a broad jumping record by leaping 19 ft. 10 V 2 in. Whitehead high jumped 5 ft. 4 in. to break the previous record. Bradley dis- played precision and swiftness when he ran the 100 yd. dash in 10.6 seconds. Smith, running the 880 in 2:09.3, edged Doyet Moore ' s old record by one second. In the opening meet, Covington sneak- ed past the Colts by winning the 880 and mile relays. Buffalo Gap won a tri-meet with a total of 84 pts. ACHS was second with 42] 2 pts. After suffering three de- feats, ACHS beat James River 87-31. In a tri-meet at Alleghany, Clifton placed first followed by ACHS. With hope of providing a sport pro- gram for those interested in track, a Jun- ior Varsity team was formed this year at ACHS. James River was beaten 59-36 on the ACHS field, but due to a weakness in Mike Thompson gracefully crosses the high jump bar. field events Alleghany lost to Lord Botetourt by a score of 55-45. After winning the 880 relay at the Buena Vista Relays, Williams, Smith, Childs, and Cook brought home a trophy that added a touch of glory to their track season. In an effort to stimulate more interest in track, an intramural track meet was held between the classes at ACHS. Coached by Donnie Wheatley and Homer Loan, the Senior boys completely dominated the field and running events. Finishing with I 7 OV 2 points, the 12th grade surpassed their closest op- ponent, the 9th grade, by 58] 2 points. ACHS Athletes are recognized at assembly Coach Rose presents Homer Loon a certificate for be- ing chosen honorable mention on the Prep All-Ameri- can football team. Bill McNabb proudly accepts " The Most Valuable Play- er " trophy from Coach Jonas and Coach Mitchell, the baseball coaches. Sandra Dressier, head cheerleader, presents the cheer- leading trophy to Mr. Cvizic and the student body. Mr. Rhea congratulates Robert Pedigo, who was pre- sented the track sportsmans hip trophy. During the Awards Assembly in May, those who have exhibited outstanding athletic ability are recognized by their coaches and the student body. All monograms are given out at this assembly and special awards in track and baseball are presented. Each athlete eagerly awaits this special assembly. For the seniors, it is the end of four years of hard work that they have successfully completed. For underclassmen, who will next year step up to fill places left by this year ' s seniors, it is the beginning of another year. They leave the assembly hop- ing fervently that they can surpass the 1965-66 records and bring more glory to ACHS. Bo Cook, Horry Smith, Coach Wil- liams, Jonathan Williams, and Gary Childs admire the trophy that they won at the Buena Vista Relays. 107 Organizations Offer Opportunity To Gain Valuable Experience and Social Awareness ' -ii-fe Extracurricular activities quite often grow out of classroom experiences, At ACHS there are two language clubs, Spanish and Latin; a commercial association, FBLA; a home econo- mics association, FHA; the Distributive Edu- cation Club; and the Art Club. Also, there are organizations for the special interests of the student. Prospective nurses enjoy the FNA. Those girls and boys with high ideals and aspirations gain satisfaction through the Tri-Hi-Y and the Key Club. Students who have excelled in various fields of athletics and have eorned school letters automatically become members of the Varsity Club, Electives, such as band, choir. Patriot staff, and AIcovo staff, require much out of doss time in order to meet the requirements of the activity. Only those students interested in music join the choir ond band; and the scholars with a ten- dency toward journalism enroll on the news- paper or annual staff. Of all the organizations in the school, probably the most important is the SCA. This is the only club to which members are elected and do not join at random. Functioning as a governmental body, the SCA has a role in establishing and carrying out school policies, Most of the organizations meet at leost once monthly unless they ore a part of the regular classroom scene. Some of the activi- ties in which these dubs participote are: having guest speakers talk about particular fields of interest, movies pertaining to this special activity, field trips, and special pro- grams. Often these orgonizations sponsor dances or assembly programs. During the year club members get to know eoch other very well through mutual interest in the dub. Most organizations conclude their yeor ' s activity with a banquet or a pic- nic for the members and their guests. Not only do organizations offer the op- portunity to gain valuoble information in a chosen field, but they also offer to students the chance to gain more social awareness and to better cooperate with their peers. Alleghany ' s banrf mokes on excellent showing eoch time it oppeofS publicly. Alleghany’s student government promotes Democracy is the foundation of America ' s civilization. Student govern- ment allows the entire student body to voice their opinions through elected representatives. Alleghany ' s S.C.A. representatives work together for the common goal of improving their school. Student Council representatives discuss and vote on issues concerning discipline, financial matters, and social events which directly influence the students. S. C. A. members are attentive as Allen Downey calls the meeting to o rder. Representatives for this year are: Allen Downey, Geneva Capps, Kathy Taylor, Cherie Davis, Alice Howard, Sharon Sizemore, Joyce Loan, Sandra Simmons, Nancy Lucas, Jan Shawver, Joyce Booze, Betty Blake, Me- lanie Vess, Reva Walker, Brenda Hayslett, Carol Thomas, Peggy Hylton, Loretta Perkins, Darlene Jones, Jean Shaw- ver, Linda Kilian, Sandra Craft, Camille Bennett, Jayne Sizer, Roy Reed, Betty Downey, Nancy Burr, Tracy Dick- son, Paula Dressier, Wanda Bowers, Cathy Cummings, Paula Sizemore ' s " hillbillies " perform a skit to aid her campaign.

Forum held at Jefferson High School in Roa- noke. Highlighting the school year of Alleghany ' s Student Co-operative Association is the election of officers for the upcoming year. Vigorous cam- paigns are waged for the individual candidates. These campaigns consist of eye-catching posters, snappy slogans, hilarious skits, and finally, the serious campaign speeches given by the campaign managers. Voters, the students of A.C.H.S., then cast their individual vote for the candidate they feel is better qualified for the office. Votes are tallied and a victor is revealed. All these pro- cedures conclude the most active week in Alle- ghany ' s student government. Students, playing the part of hunters and wild animals, present a campaign skit for Paula Sizemore, candidate for Historian. Key Club members help beautify A.C.H.S. Members of the Key Club indeed hold a key to the future. Sponsored by the area Kiwanis Club, this organization aids young men to become interested and active in their community. One of the major projects of the Key Club this year was to beautify the school. Members raised the necessary money and bought shrubbery to enhance the beauty of Alleghany County ' s newest high school. Planting, cultivating, and watering the shrubbery was done by members of the club. Basketball and baseball games were played be- tween the area Key Clubs. School spirit rose to a tremendous height as civic minded boys played their hearts out for their club. Dependable leaders of their school and their com- munity, these boys are a select group with scholastic ability, congenial personality, and straight-forward determination. Alleghany grows in spirit as well as in body as a result of the members of the Key Club. World affairs or community affairs, the Key Club members of Alleghany County High School are pre- pared to take their stand for what they believe in. Members of the Key Club take time to examine their newly planted shrubbery. Kneeling are Dennis Harmon, Hunter Fridley, Dee Buck, Donnie Wheatley, Barry Lugar, Mike Hostetter, and Kenny Childs. Standing are John Showalter, Mr. Robert Jeffries, sponsor. Dale Peters, Homer Loan, Jim Faidley, Allen Downey, Ronnie Spellman, Mike Scruggs, Frankie Dobbins, Ronnie Hall, Edward Steger, Ronnie Ruby, Charles Moore, Dennis Jones, and Ronnie Wilhelm. Each year the Kiwanis Club gives a gift of one hundred dollars to the ACHS boy who has con- tributed the most to the Key Club. His name is then inscribed on a plaque which hangs in the school so as to give him continuing rec- ognition. Awards day finally came at Al- leghany. Dennis Layne Harmon was awarded the gift. He had served most efficiently as presi- dent of Alleghany ' s Key Club for the past year and as a member of the club for the past three years. ACHS boys will compete for the award again next year. One thing is for certain, that the recipient of the award will be another worthy young man.

A.C.H.S. girls who desired to achieve the height in Christian fellowship joined together in the Sr. Tri-Hi- Y. Their prime concern was to improve their com- munity and aid the people within it. Christmas baskets were prepared by members of the club to be distributed to area families. Food, toys and clothing were among the items contributed to these baskets. Alleghany sent two representatives, Judy Bazzarre and Donna Kelly, to the Model General Assembly in Richmond. Here they participated in a model state legislature. Highlighting the activities of the Sr. Tri-Hi-Y was the Sweetheart Dance. Members elegantly decorated the gym. As the center of attraction there was an enormous, soft, pink heart at the entrance. Refresh- ments were provided by members of the club. Valen- tine ' s Day was eventful for many students of A.C.H.S. because of the beautiful work of the Sr. Tri-Hi-Y. Girls in the Sr. Tri-Hi-Y benefited the school spiritually and socially by their contributions to the school through many various activities. Judy Bazzarre, 1965-66 President, and Paula Sue Traylor, the President-elect, discuss the schedule for next year ' s Sr. Tri-Hi-Y meetings. 114 Letters are result of hard work by athletes Alleghany ' s Varsity Club is composed of young men who have lettered in sports at A.C.H.S. Football, basketball, track, cross country, baseball, and wrest- ling are among the sports represented. To letter in football or baseball, an athlete must play for a certain amount of time. Designated is an amount of time at the beginning of each season re- quired to letter. Coach Walker, basketball coach, letters all members of his squad due to the size of the squad. Track and cross country letters are given on the basis of points earned and skill shown. Coach Rose, wrestling coach, letters his boys on the basis of points earned and their ability to wrestle. At the end of each school year, all members of the Varsity Club are invited to a picnic. Different sports are played and competition runs high. All boys and their guests enjoy " the picnic of the year " . Members of the Varsity Ciub are admired by all the students at ACHS. Young athletes will be com- peting for letters and membership in the Varsity Club in the coming years. Each year, it becomes more difficult for boys to obtain letters because of the number of high quality athletes at ACHS.

Alleghany ' s Future Business Leaders of America are indeed leaders in their school and their community. Corporations, pharmacies, or department stores could not function without quick, efficient clerical work. FBLA members are given a chance to work in the school office if they choose to do so. These students function effective- ly by doing such, things as typing and keeping business cor- respondence filed and up-to-date. FBLA members aid their community by preparing them- selves as thoroughly as possible for jobs in the community. Also, this year, the Alleghany FBLA members aided their community by preparing Christmas baskets for the needy. Visits to area corporations furnish the students with a real- istic atmosphere in which they see business practices being used. various beneficial and educational activities Collecting money at a " sock hop " are Sharon Sizemore, Rita Evans, and Nancy Lucas. Greg Linkswiler, Greg Fountaine, and Daryl Tucker are waiting with anticipation to enter the dance. Lena Tyree, Joyce Loan, Ella Downey sell refreshments to Barry Lugar, Linda Fitzgerald, Frankie Dobbins at an FBLA " sock hop " . Jeanie Eggleston, Jerry Dotson, Nancy Lucas, Darlene Tucker, Glenn Minnex give an impression of a dis- orderly classroom as a part of the " Dress Right Week " skit. After home ball games, the FBLA sponsored “sock hops " to further their treasury. Girls of the FBLA baked cookies and made candy to sell at the dances. All in all, members as well as other students enjoyed several evenings of swinging music and dancing. Appearance is a most important factor in getting and keeping a good job, especially a clerical one. People are always meeting the man or woman who works in the office. For this reason Alleghany ' s FBLA sponsored “Dress Right Week " . An assembly pro- gram emphasizing good personal habits in business was one on the week ' s activities. Although the skit was quite hilarious, with a visit from Marty Martian, the members managed to get the point across. Seeing is believing! Students at ACHS know that the FBLA is a quick, efficient club because of the many activities in which they are engaged.

Members of the Future Nurses Club don ' t. Responsi- ble young women join together for the common purpose of learning how to combat the accident hazards of every- day life. Alleghany ' s members of the F.N.A, have guest lecturers and visit area hos- pitals in order to gain a greater knowl- edge of the most recent medical tech- niques. This year the Future Nurses Club helped area nurses to give the T.I.M.E. tests to all eighth grade students at A.C.H.S. These tests were given to de- tect the possibility of tuberculosis in any of the young students. F.N.A. members contribute their time and ability to help the community. Learning to help people in need of med- ical aid is indeed a great contribution to society and a credit to their citizen- ship. 1 18 Delores Boggs and JoAnn Bowles give results of the T.I.M.E. tests to eighth graders, Joyce Booze and David Rogers. Preservation of forests concerns K.V.G.’s Life is the most precious gift on earth. Wiidlife in Virginia provides beauty beyond compare for count- less thousands. A young fawn with its velvet skin and snowy spots mingled in is a marvelous sight to be- hold. Young men of Alleghany County High School aid the Forestry Department in combatting forest fires. Regardless of the time or location these young men are ready for action. Preserving the wildlife of Vir- ginia and their homeland is the key idea in their minds.

Girls learn, how to flourish their individual personalities, good grooming habits, and advanced homemaking skills. Alleghany ' s F.H.A. members take vari- ous field trips to area and state conven- tions in which they receive high ratings. A.C.H.S. girls take pride in their school and their club ' s activities. Therefore, they try to rate as high as possible in the state conventions. Girls in the F.H.A. also learn how to handle certain carpentry tools as they ex- change departments with the Industrial Arts for a week. Varied are the talents which members of the Future Homemakers of America develop. Fifth year members of the F.H.A. display their sewing ability. Betty Blake and Betty Downey are the advanced members. 120 habits and advanced homemaking skills flourish Patsy Potter, Maxine Combs, Nelda Broughman, JoAnn Mundy, Marsha Myers, Mary Ann Higgins and Faye Shifflet, Joyce Craft, Darlene Gunn, Cheryl Fridley, Patsy Bess, fourth year members, practice serving a formal Simpson, Janice Broughman, Loretta Hepler, Cheryl dinner.

This responsibility concerns the obligation of the housewife. Alleghany ' s F.H.A. members are given a few basic philosophies — laughing instead of weep- ing, helping instead of hindering, and living in- stead of existing. All are important philosophies which will accompany these girls throughout their lives. One of the largest projects of Alleghany ' s Fu- ture Homemakers of America this year was to sponsor the Christmas Formal. " Ice Capades " was the theme of the dance. It was carried out beau- tifully by the effect of large snowflakes falling from a blue sky. To add a touch of extra cheer, there was an enormous Christmas tree in the left corner of the gym, Refreshments we re served by members of the club. All who attended hailed the magnificent work of Alleghany ' s F.H.A. Childs, Barbara Johnson, Donna Madison, Kathy Conner, Darlene Tucker, Carolyn Dressier, Brenda Bryant, and Shelia Switzer, Modeling their sewing is Susan Spangler, Linda Fury, Candy Wilkerson, Betty Downey, Shelia Houff and Jeanie Johnson. 123 Members have goal of Christian leadership Members of Alleghany ' s Jr. Tri-Hi-Y join together to promote clean speech, clean living, and clean thoughts. These young girls are in the eighth, ninth, or tenth grades. In the Jr. Tri-Hi-Y Club they re- ceive a background of club principles which will be in effect in the Sr. Tri-Hi-Y. Their monthly programs consist of film strips, panel discussions, and guest lecturers. Members aid members of the Sr. Tri-Hi-Y during " Tri-Hi-Y Week. " Devotions during this week are performed by mem- bers of both the Junior and Senior Clubs. Throughout the school year, the Jr. Tri-Hi-Y up- holds the principles on which their organization was founded. The Tri-Hi-Y, which is affiliated with the Y.M.C.A., tries to instill a sense of religious and moral understanding in its members. Achieving su- perior Christian leadership is the primary goal of the Jr. Tri-Hi-Y. This Christian leadership will enable Jr. Tri-Hi-Y girls to accept positions of importance in the Sr. Tri-Hi-Y. Senior Tri-Hi-Y members are most anxious to ac- cept the well prepared members of the Jr. Tri-Hi-Y next year. Watching a film strip concerning citizenship are Linda Howard, Kathy Southers, Jennifer Wright, Bonnie Smith, Anita Wright, Phyllis Boerner, Vicki Reed, Miss Bogan, Barbara Modern, Deb- bie Bennett, Darlene Jones, Paige Miller, Sandra Craft, Linda Kilian, Debbie Lockard, Vicki Rose, Edith Kellison, Carol Thomp- son, Linda Lemon, Camille Bennett, Karen Arrington, Joan Byer, Kathy Parker, Susan Bess, Betty Downey, Pam Lefler, Debbie Fisher, Roth Ann Dainty, Pam Smith, Brenda Hughes, Linda Keaton, Sharon Hopkins, Jayne Sizer, Roberta Linkswiler, Lana Knick, Donna Booze, Sylvia Craighead, Leigh Thrasher, Ellen Brown, Kathy Parham, Karyl Jarvis, Donna Brouffey, Susan Powell. 124 Art Club creates scenery for musical MJ Members of the Art Club criticize, as well os praise their own Lin Reed, Doug Wallace, Ronnie Hail, Ronnie Rudy, Jay Young, work. Seated are Sharon Hopkins, Geneva Capps, Darlene Gunn, and Betty Sue Willis. Standing is Miss Smith, sponsor. Kathryn Arritt, Kenny Childs, Bonnie Basham, Bubbles Simmons, Interior decorating, commercial art, and classical art are a few vocations which may serve the artisti- cally inclined. Art also serves as a relaxing hobby for many people. Alleghany ' s Art Club, under the direction of Miss Elizabeth Smith, takes various field trips. Art ex- hibits, lectures, and demonstrations concerning dif- ferent forms and periods of art are frequently ob- jects of concern to the Art Club of A.C.H.S. Art Club members as well as members of Alle- ghany ' s Art classes worked diligently to produce the back-drops and other scenery for Alleghany ' s musical production of " My Fair Lady " . Back-drops of a street in London, a ballroom, and an outside garden scene were among the pieces of scenery that were provided. Everyone who saw the production of " My Fair Lady " hailed the elegant work of A.C.H.S. ' s Art Club. After Baccalaureate at Alleghany, the A.C.H.S. Art Club held their annual exhibit. Visitors were able to view the various creations which both first and second year students produced. Paintings, ceramics, and collages were given both praise and criticism by their viewers. All who were present seemed to en- joy the many varied talents of the Art Club. 125 Miss Gleason Aids Latin Club to " Amo, amas, amat " , seems to be the phrase which Alleghany ' s Latin students remember the most. This of course, is a tribute to Miss Gleason ' s teaching ability. She makes Latin an enjoyable subject which the students yearn to conquer. Each year the Latin Club presents a Christmas play to the student body. This year they provided a most thought provoking play in " Why the Chimes Rang? " Appropriate costumes and scenery helped to bring the plot into its fullest dimension. Janice Deas, Karyl Jarvis, Susan Persinger and Bill Humbert were students who received awards at the State Latin Tournament. These students com- peted with high ranking scholastic students from the entire state. Programs of varied interests were presented at the monthly meetings. These programs gave the mem- bers a new perspective into the idea and reasons for acquiring a knowledgeable skill of the language. Highlighting the Latin Club ' s activity was the an- nual banquet. Members enjoyed a well varied menu of delicious foods, as well as a marvelous time with their fellow members. They relaxed in an atmosphere of fun and frolic and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Entertainment was provided by members of the club who were gracious enough to give of their talents. Miss Lucy Gleason was presented with a compote by Hunter Fridley, president of the club. This gift was given to Miss Gleason by the members as a token of their esteem and appreciation of her many years of devotion to teaching. A.C.H.S. students have gained substantially from the varied activities of the Latin Club and hope to continue doing so in the future.

One of the biggest events in the school year of A.C.H.S. is the arrival of the ALCOVA soon after the beginning of school. Those responsible for the or- ganization of the annual are the ALCOVA staff and sponsor. This year with Judy Bazzarre as editor and Mrs. Barber as sponsor, the ALCOVA staff attempted to create a completely new and original yearbook. Three members of the staff and Mrs. Barber attended the meeting of the Southern Inter-scholastic Press Asso- ciation in order to study the latest journalistic styles. Though an enormous amount of work was neces- sary to complete the ALCOVA, the staff derived an equal amount of enjoyment from its task. Judy Bazzarre, Paula Traylor and Donna Kelly try the new journalistic ideas, which they acquired at S.I.P.A., on the ' 66 ALCOVA. Quick and efficient is the newspaper staff I The PATRIOT staff is hard at work on the pa- per. Pictured are John Stinnett, Barney Butler, Linda Morris, Sandra Dressier, Dee Buck, Jim Bowen, Miss Rebecca Thompson, Sponsor, Glenn M i n n i x. Sue Wolfe, Ronnie Rudy, and Martin Nicely. i PATRIOT staff members have the goal of bringing school news to the students of ACHS as quickly and as efficiently as possible. News of the organizations and their activities, school events, such as sports and dances, and funny little quips about the students and teachers of Alleghany are among the pages of each edition of the PATRIOT. Under the direction of Miss Rebecca Thomp- son, members of Alleghany ' s newspaper staff strive to combine good journalistic qualities with a style and news which they know will interest the students most. When editions are hot off the press, students clamor to get an edition of the PATRIOT Mem- bers of the PATRIOT staff are indeed patriots to their school. Publishing the school newspaper is a tremendous task which is ably accomplished by the PATRIOT staff members. Sandra Dressier, editor, is distributing copies of the PATRIOT to other staff members for distribution. Standing are Cathy Taylor, Joyce Clark, Marion Halsey, Sandra Dressier, Riley Smith, Leon Middleton, Ronnie Hall, Hiawatha Nicely, Greg Linkswiler, Peggy Hughes, Mary Byer, Naomi Halsey, Barbara Lemon, and Betty Bush. D.E. students gain merchandising skills " May I help you, sir? " " We have it in various colors, Mrs, Rogers. " These are only a few of the thousands of questions which Alleghany ' s Distributive Education students ask cus- tomers who patronize area stores. Classroom training as well as actual working ex- perience are the double benefits earned by Alle- ghany ' s D.E. students. Students wishing to see if they would like an occupation in public service have the opportunity to work for wages while discovering whether or not they are suited for a vocation in this field. Approaching a customer correctly, having a friendly, courteous attitude, and being helpful in every possible aspect of sales are a few of the main concerns of the D.E. club. Lectures, visits to area stores, and state canven- tions aid in allowing good salesmanship ideas and principles to flourish into their fullest perspective. Employee-employer relationship is the best indica- tion of how Alleghany ' s D.E. students rate with ather employees of area stores, ACHS students would not be hired year after year if the previous ones had rated poorly. Also, these students cannot afford to be slack in their work as they are given grades as to their performance on the job. Merchandising as a vocation is the main concern of all Distributive Education students of Alleghany County High School. High standards of salesmanship are what they strive for. Listening to a talk on salesmanship are Edna Nicely, Chuck Wicker, Danny McCoy, Joyce Tyree, Marshall Kelly, Brenda Thompson, Norma Kimberlin, Diane Hoke, Bobby Bartley, Mr. Duff, Edward Parkins, Wilma Steele, David Webb, Doug Bess, Gene Deisher, Ronnie Williams, Richard Bright, Carl Ferguson, Greg Fountaine, Steve Scruggs, Wendell Alfred, John Lesley, Pat Kirby, Danny Wolfe, Carolyn McCulley, Dorothy Kitt, Robert Vaden, Meredith Jennings, Tommy Sheppard, David Norris, Don- ald Vess, Terry Martin, Bobby Brown, James Tucker, Richard Allan, Victor Fury, Jimmy Hepler, Parker Tingler, Alfred Kesh- ner, Wayne Carper, Kenneth Hoke, J. C. Tucker, Ronnie Kale, Wayne Via, Marshall Entisminger, Robert Varner, Monty Hyler, Linda Keshner, Charles Morgan, and Larry Irvine. Officers of Alleghany ' s Distributive Education Club; John Lesley, Brenda Wright, Edna Nice- ly, John Dressier, Wendell Alfred and Mr. Duff, sponsor, make plans for an up-coming meeting. John Dressier tries his salesmanship on Mr. B. B. Burks. r As this year ' s Distributive Education students leave high school and go out into the world, they will choose to fol- low one of various vocations. Regardless of the vocation chosen by these young men and women, they will have gained valuable experience by their association with the public. They will have learned the power that accompanies public opin- ion by the effect of public opinion in buying different types of merchandise. All in all, whether the students con- tinue in merchandising or not, they will have gained substantially from being a Distributive Education student at ACHS. 131 Spanish and English cultures are combined Que dia es hoy? Today is the day for the Spanish Club meeting. Spanish Club members anticipate the monthly programs with great expectation. Monthly meetings are usually centered around the idea of bringing the cultures of Spanish speaking countries into view of Alleghany ' s Spanish speaking students. Mexico, Spain, and Latin America are viewed from both the most advantageous and dis- advantageous angles. The beauty of the country as well as the beauty of the people within it are closely evaluated by students at A.C.H.S. Mr. and Mrs. Stump were welcome visitors of Al- leghany ' s Spanish Club. They are area residents who travel extensively in Spanish speaking countries. Mr. and Mrs. Stump provided excellent color slides of many countries as well as a most informative lecture to accompany the slides. Spanish Club members began a new financial plan this year which will be followed in the coming years at ACHS. Members may buy a club pin if de sired but this is not required. Dues are not collected. Members choose to earn the money they feel is necessary. A " sock hop " was one of the many activities in which the members of the Spanish Club engaged. This adventure proved both profitable and enjoyable to the members of the Club. Students at ACHS learn that English and Spanish cultures are similar, and are very easily combined for the improvement of both cultures. Standing: Anthony Salyers, Glenn - Minnix, and Mrs. Sumner. Seated: Edward Steger, Thaddea Chamberlain, Betty Miller, Paige Miller, Sue Redman, Becky McCaleb, Carnell Wrenn, Laurel Runyon, Debbie Bennett, Linda Wolfe, Donna Simpson, Frankie Dobbins, Judy Childs, Paula Sizemore, Steve Stull, Homer Loan, Larry Dew, Roy Swartz, Joe Mullens, Sharon Sizemore, Penny Birch, Chipper Farmer, Donna Kelly, Bobbie Johnson, Susan Loomis, Randy Staire, and Bunny Yachan. 132 Finish with a flourish! This is exactly what members of Alleghany ' s Spanish Club did. Members climaxed the end of the school year with an all-day picnic. Fun, sun, and frolic brought about a merry atmos- phere beyond compare. Badminton, horseshoes, cro- quet, and swimming gave both girls and boys a raven- ous appetite. Hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad and all the trimmings of a real " swinging " picnic helped to soothe the hunger pains of the members and their guests. Everyone expressed complete satisfaction with the activities of the day. Sunburns and laughter beyond compare were a few of the results of the picnic. Mrs. Sumner, Spanish Club sponsor, is serving Susan and Jennie Loomis a delicious hamburger. Greg Fountaine and Betty Miller enjoy a vigorous game of Badminton at the Spanish Club picnic. Thaddea Chamberlain, Allan Rodgers, Donna Simpson, and Vernon Helmintoller " clown around " a bit after enjoying their delicious picnic lunch. 133 “My Fair Lady” is heralded a fabulous success Pictured on the streets of London are Cherie Davis, Allan Tucker and Joe Eaton. Two deportments, the choral and the art, co-operated to present Alle- ghany ' s first musical. Ticket sales being " sold out " was a grand indication of the magnificent success of " My Fair Lady " . Cherie Davis, as Eliza Doolittle and Allan Tucker, as Mr. Henry Higgins were the star performers. Mr. Higgins took a poor little " gutter snipe " and transformed her into a duchess. By doing this, he won his bet with Colonel Pickering, portrayed by Joe Eaton, and then threw the little flower girl back into the streets. Vocal renditions by other members of the cast were a great contribution to the success of the play. Hours and hours of practicing brought Alle- ghany ' s production of " My Fair Lady " to a wonderful climax in the en- chanting evening scene. Needless to say, the ending of the play did not bring an end to the view- ing of the performers. Countless curtain calls and loud resounding ap- plause echoed through the aduitorium. Mrs. Flora Thompson directed the choral part of the production. Miss Elizabeth Smith and her art classes provided excellent true-to-life back- drops, while Miss Rebecca Thompson and Mrs. William Goode aided the performers to flourish their dramatic talents. Alleghany ' s first musical was a grand success and provided a real chal- lenge for next year ' s vocal class. 134 Lin Reed, Dale Peters, Leigh Thrasher, Thurston Boggs, Judy Smith, William Gilliland, Allan Tucker, Joe Eaton, Cherie Davis, Linda Fitzgerald, Karen Whitehead, and Paul Warwick enjoy a Sunday afternoon at Ascot. Billy Gilliland, Rose Branham, Delano Waldren, Johnny Johnson, Allan Tucker, Cherie Davis, Bonnie Basham, Joe Mullins, Betty Miller, and Paul Warwick enjoy a boll at Buckingham Palace. A.C.H.S. choral class presents first musical " My Fair Lady " — mention this phrase around area communities and most people will answer back, " Alleghany County High School ' s excellent musical production " . Outstandingly performed, Alleghany ' s first musical production was hailed by critics as being far beyond a mere high school production. Mrs. Flora Thompson, director of Alleghany ' s cho- ral department, combined the vocal techniques of her students and their dramatic abilities into a mu- sical creation beyond compare. However, " My Fair Lady " was not the only ac- complishment of Alleghany ' s choral class. They pre- sented a Christmas program for the student body of ACHS. Various types of music, such as religious and frolicing, were sung with the utmost quality. Baccalaureate marked the final appearance of Al- leghany ' s 1966 choral class. They sang several se- lections which helped to mix the emotions of the graduates and guests.

Carrying the banner is Darlene Gunn and Carol Flenner. Standing are Tana Long, Judy Deisher, Glenna Slayton, and Melanie Vess. Alleghany County High School had majorettes to ac- company their band onto the field this year. Under the di- rection of Miss Rebecca Thompson, girls interested in becoming majorettes acquired twirling skills, strutting fi- nesse, and marching routines. In addition to performing on the field, these girls also performed at several pep meetings. They frequently did a routine to Alleghany ' s " fight song " which gave a great rise to school spirit during the pep meetings. I Alleghany ' s " high stepping " majorettes made their first public appearance in the Labor Day Parade. 137 FLUTES Bunny Yachan Sandra Taylor Allison Newman Charlotte Smith CLARINETS Penny Burch Mike Arritt Steve Young Eugenia Hoke Mary Beth Watson Judy Deisher Karen Hoke Sandra Ward Patti Griffith Tommy Callaghan Carol Flenner Charlie Burr Phil Eaton Carolyn Honts JoAnn White Janice Williams Lucky Nelson SAXOPHONES Lena Tyree Kathryn Arritt Kathy Conner Ellen Clark Gwen Fisher Fay Wertz Donna Bruffey Elvin Nicely Edith Kellison HORNS Paul Warwick (drum Major) Steve Nuckols TRUMPETS Michael Wade Joe Morris Sharon Wright Steve Maddy Bruce Neville Theodore Nicely Mike Curtis Gary Mays TROMBONES Allen Downey Wayne Kern Charles Hawes John Barineau BARITONES Scott Lee Ronnie Shires Barry Mahany BASS Allen Smith PERCUSSION Claude Scruggs Steve Dressier Steve Saylor Laural Runyon Jacky Thurston Vernon Morris Joe Eaton 138 Alleghany ' s band received their new uniforms this year.

Marching out on Alle- ghany ' s new football field, band members created a striking scene. Musical selec- tions were expertly played while the band performed in- tricate marching maneuvers. Band members as well as their director, Mr. Baber, were hailed for the excellent per- formance by the young group. Mr. Leonard Baber directs Alleghany ' s band during the Christmas pageant. Spiritual, as well as frolicking Christmas music was presented during this pageant. 139 Students at ACHS Keep Well-filled Schedules Students pay very serious ottention to one of the mony assemblies, " Woe is the life of the student! He is the one who must suffer through the torture of high school. " Students ot Alleghany ore of- ten heard comploining about all that they have to do. But, when they ore more closely questioned, they admit that they are enjoy- ing every minute of their lives at ACHS. During the teen years the high school is the hub of life. Teenagers spend most of their hours either at school or in some school related activity. Lessons, practices, games, club meetings, dances, and exams keep sche- dules well-filled throughout the school years. From the time the eighth graders arrive from elementary school they are wrapped up in a whirlwind of activity that does not stop for at least five years. There are things to do, places to go, and people to see, and nothing can be omitted from the ever-fuil schedule. Through oil these varied activities it is the purpose of the school to educate the student in all phases of life and not merely on the academic level. Those students who engage in the school ' s activities in and out of the clossroom ore those students who are pre- pared to face life. rhroughout Their Five Years of High School Brenda Jane Ailstoek

Vice-President; and Linda Howard, Secretary, leave a class meeting together. At ACHS the sophomore year is more or less the dividing line between the upperclassmen and the underclassmen. During this period in the high school career, sophomores are introduced to new ideas, new courses, and new methods of study. These tenth grade students find themselves face to face with biology, JULIUS CAESAR, and Algebra II. This year also offers the opportunity to squeeze in an elective, such as art, world geography, or woodwork. As the year nears its close, sophomores find them- selves looking forward to the junior year with mixed feelings. Schedules will be tighter; courses will be tougher. But — this year will be their year to plan, prepare, and attend the prom; this will be their year to order class rings; this will be their year to begin to choose a college. At the end of an action-packed sophomore year, these students excitedly look to the coming school term. 159 Carl Wendell Alfred Rebecca Sue Anderson Dora Lee Armentrout Corina Mae Banker Ruth Eleanor Barbee Lily Francine Basham Stephen Allen Bennett Elizabeth Faye Bess Ruth Naomi Blokey Ramona Elizabeth Blankenship Sarah Agnes Botkins Barbara Gail Bowen Jo Ann Bowles John Marshall Bradley Nelda Faye Broughman Robert Edward Brown Brenda Ann Bryant James Julius Bunch Elizabeth Miller Bush Donnie Dean Buzzard Cynthia Stuart Byer Mary Ann Byer Stephen Lee Byerly Mary Ellen Byers Ronald Wayne Cole Randolph Franklin Capps Thoddea Chamberlain Judy Kay Childs Joyce Enola Clarke Mickey Virginia Clemons Charlotte Maxine Combs Sarah Kathryn Conner Joyce Gail Craft Routh Ann Dainty Roger Adrian Daniels Robert William Davis Mary Elizabeth Deaton Lawrence Edward Dew Carolyn Hope Dressier Gregory Stephen Dressier Ella Marie Downey Edward Arnold Dudley Clarence Wendell Farmer Carl Smith Ferguson, Jr. Barbara Ann Fisher Montrue Degloria Fourquean Richard Calvin Fridley Cheryl Ann Fridley James Edward Faidley Rebekoh Lois Fridley Victor Lewis Fury Dawn Gaye Hall Ronnie Morrison Hall Gloria Mae Honks William Michael Hayslett Bobby Trail Hepler LoreHa Pearl Hepler Karen Elaine Hoke Alice Marie Howard Margaret Anne Hughes William Larry Hurt Charles Lee Hylton Meredith Littleton Jennings, Jr. Barbara Sue Johnson Ivan Randall Johnson, III Karan Frances Johnson Maria Diane Kellison Donna Leigh Kelly Marshall Thomas Kelly, Jr. John Wayne Kern Clifford Bruce Kesterson Ralph Eugene Kimberlin Earnest Lewis Knick Donald Eugene Lawhorn Julian Otis Lewis Virgil Lee Lewis, Jr. Tana Lee Long Susan Christine Loomis William Kenneth Lowe Edgar Louis McAllister Lois Marye McAllister Franklin Samuel McCullough Shirley Emogene McDaniel Paul Stephen Maddy Donna June Madison Terry Allen Martin William Leon Moys James Grant Mays, Jr. Leon Holmes Middleton Betty Virginia Miller Gary Lynn Miller Lewis Lloyd Mitchell Charles William Morgan Jeanette Pearl Morris Joseph Thomas Mullen Marsha Gary Myers Carletta Lanear Nelson Bernard William Nicely, Jr. Edna Lee Nicely Glory Ann Nicely Grover Monroe Nicely, Jr. Hiawatha Nicely Nancy Gail Nicely Patsy Ann Nicely David Weldon Norris Karen Shifter Patrick Sue Ellen Peters Patricia Ann Potter Jack Edwin Pooge Earlene Gail Reed Mary Evelyn Reed Emily Jane Reynolds Richard Lanier Reynolds Robert Alleit Rogers Ruby Arietta Rose Cod ie Ashby Ross, Jr. Ronald Anthony Rudy Anthony Edward Salyers Walter John Seidel Joann Amanda Shifflett Connie Marshall Shires Charles Odell Simmons Paula Gwen Sixemore Charlotte June Smith David Stanton Smith Wilma Lee Steele James Edward Steger Stephen Lewis Stull Corolyn Leigh Swaim John Hollowoy Swartx Roy Edward Swart Bonita Taylor Michael Layne Thompson Linda Gale Thresher Randall Dale Tingler Poulo Sue Traylor Darlene Ann Tucker James Sidney Tucker Stephen Allon Tucker Virginia Pearl Tucker Joyce Ann Tyree Judith Lee Tyree Eugenia Lee VanBuren Donald Edward Vess Robert Allen Vess Thomas Wade Vess Melanie Sue Vest James Franklin Via Wayne McKinely Via Sanford Michael Wade Jeonnie Marie Walton Mary Emma Walton Paul Edword Warwick Alice Marie Webb Timothy Lee Webb Ted Collins Wilhelm William Blair Wilhelm Beverly Sue Wolfe Calvin Eugene Wolfe Danny Leroy Wolfe Larry Arnold Wolfe Cornell Cornelia Wrenn Linda Faye Wright Jay Barkley Young S s i I t i65 Junior Class Officers Meet to Discuss Budget Junior class officers have to rr,eet often. Officers are Thaddea Chamberlain, Secretary; Alice Howard, President; Paula Sizemore, Treasurer; Ronnie Rudy, Vice-President. " Would you believe . . . we ' re juniors! " How often this phrase is heard as the eleventh grade students return to school in the fall. Of all the school years, the junior year probably brings more excitement, activity, and growth than any other. During the fall, juniors and their parents are invited to attend college night. On this evening representatives from various colleges and universities talk to the students and point out the value of an education. After listening to these representatives many juniors start thinking seri- ously about college. Next on the junior agenda is the planning for the prom. Committees are formed, chairmen are elected, and plans progress. Climaxing the many long hours of planning and work is the prom itself. This is a proud night for the juniors. Sometime during the spring juniors can be seen walk- ing around the halls with one hand extended in front. This can mean only one thing — class rings are in. For several days juniors can be seen treating one hand as though it were not a part of their body. Class rings are prize possessions of the eleventh grade student. While all the hustle and bustle of the junior year proceeds, there is one thought ever present in these students ' minds — " Next year we will be SENIORS! " Students dance under the streamers in front of the tree at the prom. Jun- iors displayed good taste and origi- nality in their theme and decorations. 166 Seniors Work Hard But Have Happy Memories What does it mean to be a senior? Ask any twelfth grade student and his answer will probably be, " It means WORK, man, WORK! " Most seniors realize that they have only one school year remaining in which they may take advantage of the opportunities that they have missed during the post eleven years. Many decisions must be made this year and there are only nine months in which to make them. College ap- plications must be filled out and sent in; interviews are held between stu- dents and prospective employers; re- cruiters must be visited in order to find out more inform ' ation about the branches of the service. Not long after school starts, sen- iors begin to realize a feeling of finality — this is the last time to come back to school; this is the last football game, this is the last Christ- mas formal. Throughout the year seniors feel less and less a part of the student body. They understand that they are being groomed for the future and not for the next year of high school. As the year progresses there are many memorable scenes — marching into assemblies, senior exams, order- ing caps and gowns, the prom, the senior banquet, and finally, gradua- tion. After a whirlwind year, which leaves the senior rather dazed, again the question is asked, " What did it mean to be a senior? " The answer — " It meant a lot of hard work, an enormous amount of respect and honor, and a whole store of unfor- gettable memories. " Senior class officers leave school after an important meeting. Officers are Martin Nicely, Vice-President; Jim Miller, President; Nancy Lucas, Secretary; Homer Loan, T reasurer. 167 Rieherd Ray Allen Joseph Paul Aman Mary Carlisle Andrews Ronald Reniek Andrews James Michael ArriM Mary illen Bailey Robert Emmett Bartley Bonnie Faye Besham Judy Sue Ba orre Douglas Woyne Bess Betty Jean Blake Thurston Albert Boggs Saefred Daryal ieoth James Hoge Bowen Jane Vaughn Bragg Richard Wayne Bright Janice Deane Brookman Pearl Ellen Braughman Linda Morris Brown Jeanette Coleman Bryant William McDonald Buck Barney Stanley Butler Alta Geneva Capps Murrill Wayne Carper Dreama Colleen Carr Janis Gayle Carter Mary Cordelia Carter Kenneth Parker Childs Henrietta Clark Linda Cecelia Cross Randolph Martin Dovidson Cherie Suzanne Davis Reginald Lee Deane Eugene Earnest Deisher Frankie Earl Dobbins Jerry Winters Dotson Bettie Elizabeth Downey Walter Allen Downey John Hill Dressier Sandra Lynn Dressier Lucy Anna Dudley Kathleen Louise Eary Joseph Haroid Eaton Delorio Jean Eggleston Earl Preston Elmore Marshall Stewart Entsminger Rita Sue Evans Linda Gray Fitzgerald Gregory Loving Fountains Delbert Lanier Fridley Harry Hunter Fridley Richard Grant Fridley Susan Jane Kimberlin Ronald Lee Frye Corrie Eugene Gaines Saundra Louise Goode Delanor Lee Gordon Porticio Jean Griffith Zernie Darlene Gunn Kathryn Eliiobeth Hall Morion Halsey Mary Esther Halsey Naomi Halsey Primrose Halsey Ernest Linwood Harlow, Jr. Dennis Layne Harmon Larry Gene Harris Soro Elisabeth Harris Alexander Edward Hayes Jimmy- Leon Hepler Mary Anne Higgens Roger Dale Hil ' e Gladys Diane Hoke Kenneth Miles Hoke Michael Ray Hostetter James Edward Howard Larry Keith Howard Peggy Vivian Hughes Monte Leo Hyler Lorry Eugene Irvine Norma Jeon Irvine Brenda Sue Johnson Jean Nicely Johnson Dennis Allen Jones Cheryl Marie Keaton Lindo Catherine Kellison Jack Allen Kelly Alfred Torrence Kershner Lois Linda Kershner Catherine Elisabeth Kimberlin Norma Jean Kimberlin Patricia Ellen Kirby Dorothy Ann Kitt Somuel Bolton Kitt Lula Foye Landis Barbara Carol Lemon John Lee Lesley Gregory Layne Linkswiler Homer Rheo Loan, Jr. Joyce Ann Loon Donna Jean Lucas Nancy Sue Lucas Danny Ray McCoy Brenda Ann McCauley Alma Carolyn McCulley Charles William McNabb, Jr. Anita Louise Mann James Robert Martin Glenn Allison Mays Larry Keith Mays Arnys Lacy Meadows Sandra Ann Meadows 175 Dollie Ann Messer James Russell Miller Glenn Braxton Minnix Charles Norman Moore Irvine Huston Moore Arthur Jordan Morris Linda Gail Morris Linda Cheryl Mundy Thomos Lynn Neal Corol Veronica Nicely Cheryl Darlene Nicely Dwight Edward Nicely Elisabeth Jean Nicely Martin Cecil Nicely Stanley Fulton Nicely Johnny Lewis Nido Robert Edwin Noffsinger Anise Colleen Owens Linda Kaye Parham Edward Wayne Parkins Carolyn Joann Patterson Clara Laverne Paxton Dale Carlton Peters Elizabeth Linsey Reed Judy Denise Reed Ronald Wayne Reynolds William Leroy Reynolds Dennis Allan Rhea Paul David Richmond Frank Linwood Robinson Barbara Ann Ruff Laurel Adelia Runyon William Lee Sartain Mildred Howe Server Joyce Lynn Scott Claude Howell Scruggs Oscar Thomas Sheppard John Roger Showalter Robert Douglas Simmons Sondra Carole Simmons Patsy Elizabeth Simpson Sharon O ' Hara Sizemore Jennifer Davis Siedd James Arthur Sloan Jerry Lee Smith Judith Colleen Smith Riley Roseoe Smith, Jr. Wando Noreen Steele John Clinton Stinnett Shielo Luvenio Switzer Patricio Ann Taliaferro Kathleen Ann Taylor Sonja Taylor Brenda Lee Thompson Gary Preston Thompson Julio Anna Tigrett Parker Lee Tingler Allen Finney Turner Lena Pearl Tyree Robert Lewis Vaden Robert Woyne Varner Joyee Elizabeth Voss Revo Mae Walker Douglas Elwood Walloce James Calvin Wallis Sandra Kay Ward Frank Leroy Webb William Dovid Webb Donald Edward Wheatley Joanne Sharon White Ralph Franklin Whitehead, Jr. Charles Warren Wicker Ronald Gerald Wilhelm Ronald Lee Willioms Betty Sue Willis Margaret Frances Wolfe Michael Dean Wolfe Joyce Gail Worley Judy Ann Worley Audrey Lorraine Wright Brenda Gay Wright POST GRADUATES Mildred Louise Patterson Josephine Lee Wade 181 Students and Merchants Work Together To Help Make the 1966 Alcova A Tremendous Sueeess Local industries and businesses make the Alcova possible. If it were not for their financial support and interest in the school, students at Alleghany would be denied the precious memories of bygone years. Business- men and merchants willingly and generously give to the support of the annua! through their purchasing of space for advertisements in the annual, The whole school is deeply indebted to these people who have performed such o great service for the students ot ACHS. Selling advertisements in the annual was a big day at school this year. Approximately thirty students were excused from classes one day early in September to canvas the two local cities and the county for ads. Students were divided into groups and each group was assigned a certain portion of the cities or county. Everyone was interested in selling os many ads as possible, and before the day ended, there was open competition between groups to see who could toke in the greatest number of ad sales. Ads day was a tremendous success at ACHS. There were more ads sold this year than any of the previous years at Alleghany High. Everyone seemed interested in helping the school through their generous contribu- tions, and without this assistance there could have been no 1966 Alcova. After securing on od for the Alcova, Dennis Mormon, Linda Cross, Judy Bozzorre, Donno Kelly, ond Mary Andrews appear omused with Mr. John Rice ' s comments.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CLASS OF 66 FROM A FRH Tree farming is a GROWING business Proof? Ten years ago, there were only 16 million acres of woodlands on the nation’s accredited Tree Farms. Today, there are almost 50 million acres, a three-fold increase. Each Tree Farm is being operated as a private enterprise, growing trees for a regular cash income, just like any other crop. One of the big reasons why tree farming is a growing business is because the market for wood is growing. Annual consumption of wood products is rising at a steady rate and continues to rise as our economy expands. The country’s tree farmers are able to supply these growing needs because they are employing scientific forestry methods in cutting, harvesting, seeding and through the protection of their timber from fire and disease. This is good news not only for tree farmers and wood-using industries, but also for the nation. West Virginia Pulp and Paper MAYTAG APPLIANCE STORE Kelvinafor Appliances Zenith Radio and T. V.
