Charlie Burr exerts individual effort as a member of the wrestling team. 2 FBLA members Karen Patrick, Charlotte Lip- trap, Carolyn Dressier, Glory Nicely, and Cynthia Byer take part in club projects. Are Expressed And Responsibilities Met Through organizations, academic activities, sports, and extracurricular activities Alleghany ' s students come in contact with many varied personalities. They experience the joys that are evident when a group project is completed. Working together as a club brings satisfaction when projects are begun from ideas of the group and are carried through with re- sponsibility to the final goal. Alleghany ' s classes encourage free expression of ideas which benefit the entire group. Each student is taught to respect the individual opinions of others but he is also taught the value of group discussion and decision. Especially in sports, students learn the value of teamwork. How successful is a cross country relay without teamwork? Each member therefore does his best not just for himself but for the whole of the activity. Lastly, let us look at the success of Alleghany ' s extracurricular activities. Students working together toward a common end strive for the successful ac- complishment of their goals. Club members working diligently on a sponsored dance, newspaper staff members working on a special edition, football players working for a close win and juniors working eagerly on the prom are significant examples of Alleghany ' s teamwork. Jon Kilian presides at a junior class meeting. Art students often have opportunities to express their individual ideas. Students such as Mark Bennett and Phil Nikkei earn trust and respect by accepting responsibility. 3 Separate Ideals, Goals And Responsibilities Jim Faidley, kicking specialist for the Colt gridmen, attempts a field goal as Bobby Irvine holds. Shared, Catalyze Outstanding efforts by students such as Debbie Bennett, top magazine salesman in this year ' s fund- raising campaign, en- able ACHS to easily top its goal of $ 3000 . Each of Alleghany ' s students has a unique place in the school and in the whole of society. ACHS ' s classes encourage the individual to delve into the world of creative thinking and activity. Free expression in art, music and writing are just a few of the areas in which the students accept the responsibilities con- nected with individuality. Just as teamwork is necessary to succeed, so is t he individual contribution of every person. Teams, groups and clubs are composed of students who accept the responsibility of a personal challenge and meet it according to their ability. Each member of an athletic team must give his all for the eventual vic- tory. Sometimes his efforts crumple in defeat, but at least he has the individual satisfaction of trying. Organizations that decide to under- take a large civic or community project know that their success is dependent upon the in- dividual ' s willingness to work. Every student at Alleghany has a respon- sibility to himself as well as to society to acquire as much knowledge as is possible. Eventually this individual will be the leader of tomorrow ' s world Alleghany County High School ' s curricula, sports programs, and organizations, offer every individual a chance to develop himself to the fullest extent. It is the student ' s responsibility to seek the chal- lenge and to meet it with ability. Horizons are bright for individuals who make the most of their opportunities at Alleghany. Bobbie Johnson, a candidate for Miss Al- cova, hopes to make a good impression on the interviewers, who judge her on general appearance, poise, general awareness and school spirit. 4 Expressed And The Distillation . . . C. L. Hylton, Otis Lewis, and Mike Wade casually exchange comments and ideas during a between class break. They have found such extracurricular discussions both an enjoy- able and an enlightening part of academic life at ACHS. Wendell Alfred makes use of the school P.A. system while carry- Frank McCullough uses classroom skills in fulfilling the responsi- ing out his responsibilities as a member of the yearbook staff. bilities typical of library science students. The newspaper staff is often seen dashing madly about their journalism room, knocking over chairs and each other, as they try to meet the deadlines for the lat- est issue of the PA- TRIOT. Here, the articles written and the stencils typed, staff members relax as the first copies be- gin coming off the press. . . . Of The Crowd Into The Individual Students reluctantly return to classes after enjoying SCA campaign speeches. Groups, teams and organizations are all important to the functioning of ACHS. Working together in harmo- ny is one of the basic principles which lead to the success of activities at Alleghany. Juniors are pleased with the success of their efforts in relation to the junior-senior prom. Naturally the large gym couldn ' t have been trans- formed into an " Isle of Paradise " by one person. Hard teamwork is evident in the athletic records compiled by ACHS athletes. Wins in sports brought hardy exclamations of victory resulting from the efficient teamwork. Organizations are constantly mak- ing contributions to ACHS. Civic proj- ects benefit the entire student body because of the participation of the group. Although the crowd and group are important, the individual contributions rate above all else. Group achievement depends strictly on individual work. Each person has his own special abili- ties and ideas which benefit the smooth operation of the group. All areas of success at Alleghany hold the essence of individual contribution. Alleghany ' s atmosphere permits the individual to emerge as a unique enti- ty. Alleghany ' s students will contribute to society because of the outstanding character development acquired at Alleghany County High School. Roy Swartz seeks solitude for reminiscing and anticipating future events. 7 Mr. Walker is Honored for Contributions Mr. Walker emphatically makes a point whether it concerns trigonometry, basketball or problems of administration. Who has ever been called a “dumb ox, " “dadblame female, or knothead Those who hove been ad- dressed this way are probably well acquainted with the rest of the “complementary " expressions confer- red upon lucky individuals by Mr. Charles Walker. Although Mr. Walker has achieved a certain notori- ety for his persecution of the public address system, English teachers, and females in general; he is better known by the students at ACHS as an outstanding teacher, coach, administrator, and friend. Mr. Walker is also known as “Rembrandt " Walker by those who have often marveled at his singular ability for sketching freehand circles and triangles. He has also acquired the habit of giving impromptu whistling concerts while performing his blackboard artistry. Never has he had a discipline problem in one of his classes, because alertness is a must for all students lest they miss some of Mr. Walker ' s spon- taneous remarks or antics. Those students who have been in Mr. Walker ' s classes have been inspired and enlightened by his methods of teaching. His effec- tiveness as a teacher is best reflected in the college records of his former students. Mr. Walker admits to having made only two mis- takes in his life, (the substance of these errors he has never revealed) but despite what he may say, Mr. Walker is not so nearly perfect as he boasts. At times, in his capacity as varsity basketball coach, he has been known to use some rather strong language. In fact on more than one occasion he is reported to have said, “Triple-double-fudge! " Through moments of elating victory or crushing defeat, he has retained a spark of optimism and a strong desire to win. When talent may have been lacking, he instilled desire and spirit into the boys. In the autumn of 1966, Mr. Walker stepped with accustomed ease, into his new role as assistant prin- cipal. In undertaking these new administrative re- sponsibilities, Mr. Walker is efficiency personified. His presence has done much to streamline the duties of the office staff and make Mr. Cvizic ' s job more bearable. His disciplinary measures have been firm but fair, earning him the deserved and genuine re- spect of the students. Thus, the tall figure striding down the hall with his hands rammed in his pockets will be one of the most pleasant memories of ACHS. His quick wit, fairness and good-natured attitude are the distin- guishing marks of a unique individual. Therefore, with great admiration and esteem, the ALCOVA staff and the students of ACHS dedicate the 1967 AL- COVA to Mr. Charles Walker. as Teacher, Coach, and Administrator These students make a futile attempt to slip past Mr. Walker after the second bell has One of Mr. Walker ' s administrative duties run 9- is to eliminate schedule conflicts. 9 Academics Bruce Kesterson exhibits mathematic skill by solving a trig problem on the blackboard. Teachers must listen attentively at faculty aware of decisions of the administration. meetings to remain Are Designed To Meet The Needs Of Students As in all schools, the main function of Alleghany County High School is the operation of its academic program. To meet the different needs of its students, Alleghany offers courses in college preparatory, com- mercial, and general programs. In every course, students are taught the value of class discussion and exchange of ideas as well as the importance of individual effort. High achievement is encouraged in all fields of endeavor. Courses offered at ACHS enable a student to develop his special inter- ests and abilities as well as to prepare for his chosen vocation. In addition to specific data and skills, stu- dents are taught the correct methods of studying, rea- soning, and problem-solving. Success in the academic program usually aids a student in choosing his career by allowing him to discover in what fields his talents lie. Alleghany ' s able faculty members maintain high standards of learning in every department of the aca- demic program. In addition to their regular teaching duties, they are usually quite willing to assist students who need extra help in their courses. Faculty members sponsor extracurricular organizations and coach ath- letic teams which are extremely valuable in develop- ing students ' social and physical skills. Many teachers take a special interest in the students ' problems and plans; through instruction and encouragement, these teachers endeavor to aid students in achieving their goals. School Board Formulates A ll School Policies Mr. C. M. Smith, District Supervisor East Carolina College, B.S. University of Virginia, M.Ed. To the school board belongs the responsibility of de- termining regulations and policies for all schools in Alleghany County. Their fairness in policy making is demonstrated by their willingness to listen to reason- able requests and petitions to change established rules. In addition to setting policies, they are also respon- sible for supervising the administration of them. Their supervisor, Mr. C. M. Smith, checks to be sure that all schools are functioning smoothly. He assists in trying to solve any pr oblems which cannot be solved locally. Due to the helpful suggestions from Mr. Walter Hodnett, Superintendent of Alleghany County Schools, and the capable leadership of Mrs. Lois Hamlett, chairman, the school board manages to reach de- cisions that are in the best interests of all involved. School board members are: Chairman, Mrs. John Hamlett, Mr. Bishop Pentz, Mr. Robert Burrowes, Mr. Frank Hammond, Mr. Delbert Hepler, Mrs. James Ginn, and Mr. Walter Hod- nett, Superintendent. 12 Mr. Cvizic Administers School Rules Fairly To students at Alleghany, Mr. Cvizic is the symbol of authority. He represents all school policy and rules; in most instances where con- flict with school policy arises, he is the final authority; however, his warm and friendly personality keep him from seeming aloof. When he walks down a hall at ACHS, he al- ways has a friendly greeting for the students and faculty members that he meets. He always finds time for those who have important mat- ters to discuss with him. Students should never be deceived by think- ing that Mr. Cvizic ' s amiable manner will in- terfere with his conscientious administering of regulations governing the student body. He can become a firm disciplinarian when a situ- ation necessitates his so doing, but he always deals with students with fairness and great patience. Usually, he is willing to dispense mild punishment to offenders and to give them another chance. He will always listen to spec- ial requests which are reasonable and will base his decisions on all pertinent factors. Always seeking to improve school condi- tions, Mr. Cvizic sets high standards for stu- dent conduct. He assumes a special interest in all student activities. Mr. Cvizic enters his office to begin his usual, busy day. Mr. Cvizic addresses the student body during an assembly. Mr. Dusan Cvizic, Principal Concord College, A.B. George Peabody College, M.Ed. 13 Mr. Walker Is Named Assistant Principal Mr. Walker teases Jeannie Morris as he signs an absentee excuse for her. Another office was added to the administrative staff of Alleghany County High School in the autumn of 1966. To fill the new office of assistant principal, Mr. Charles F. Walker was named. Prior to this year, he had been a member of the mathematics depart- ment. In his new capacity, Mr. Walker undertakes many of the duties which have previously been performed by Mr. Cvizic and Mr. Holbert. He begins the year by assigning students to classes according to the curricula they have entered. Mr. Walker ' s customary responsi- bilities include signing absentee excuses, approving students ' leaving school early, checking teachers ' reg- isters, and conferring with teachers, students, and parents on problems about courses and grades. Throughout the year, he assists in scheduling and di- recting academic and extracurricular activities. He frequently assumes the role of a disciplinarian by pun- ishing those students who are guilty of breaking school rules. In the absence of Mr. Cvizic, he undertakes the administrative and ceremonial duties of principal of Alleghany. Mr. Walker confers with Mrs. McClintic and Mr. Jefferies as they patrol the halls between classes. 14 Mr. Holbert Combines Efficiency With Duty Mr. Holbert fills out a monthly bus report. In his capacity as administrative assistant, Mr. Holbert works in cooperation with Mr. Cvizic and Mr. Walker. His main duty is serving as athletic and bus dir ector. As athletic director, Mr Holbert is responsible for scheduling all athletic events in- volving teams from Alleghany. Such planning in- volves corresponding with representatives from other schools to correlate Alleghany ' s athletic schedule with theirs. Often, he must make last minute checks upon playing conditions prior to game time. He frequently supervises games and meets to see that everything is running smoothly. Mr. Holbert ' s duties as bus director include di- recting bus maintenance, planning bus routes, checking bus mileage and the number of students riding buses, and assisting bus drivers with any discipline problems. It is his responsibility to keep records of bus expenses. In addition to his other duties as administrative assistant, Mr. Holbert supervises the maintenance staff for Alleghany County High School. Their efficiency is testimony to his capable superintend- ence. Mr. Holbert consults with a bus driver about his daily route. Mr. Charles Holbert Lincoln Memorial University, B.S. University of Virginia, M.Ed. Administrative Assistant Biology, Earth Science 15 Office Staff Is Noted For Efficiency Mrs. Dora McCaleb Secretary Mrs. Ellen Snead Secretary Mrs. McCaleb labors over financial records as Mrs. Snead searches for a file. As the brain is the control center of the body, so the administrative office is the center of all school activities. Mrs. Dora McCaleb and Mrs. El- len Snead, assisted by an efficient staff of stu- dents, do the bulk of the paper work for ACHS. Their duties include acting as receptionists, car- rying on correspondence, keeping financial rec- ords for the school, and running the school book- store and clinic. In addition, they do much to light- en the workloads of Mr. Cvizic and Mr. Walker by settling many of the minor problems and disputes which arise during the course of an average school day. Mrs. McCaleb and Mrs. Snead supervise the compiling, printing, and distributing of daily ab- sentee lists as well as periodic notices to students and faculty members. They keep permanent school files, absentee records, and schedule cards for all students at Alleghany. Mrs. McCaleb and Mrs. Snead are ever ready to lend their services to stu- dents or teachers in need of assistance. Office staff: Brenda Byer, Glory Nicely, Mary Ann Byer, Montrue Fourqurean, Mary Fridley, Becky Anderson, Brenda Craft, Wanda Lee, Sue Peters, Ruby Rose, and Jeannie Morris. 16 Band And Choir Give Recreation And Skills Band and choir classes at ACHS provide pleasant recreation as well as cultural skills. Musical pieces which students learn are chosen for the Christmas and spring concerts which the advanced band and all choir members present annually. At these times, students who have excelled in their efforts are able to display their talents in solo performances. Some students are oc- casionally given the opportunity to direct band and choir classes during the year; usually, these students are ones who plan careers in the field of music and who hope eventually to direct choirs or bands of their own. Besides their regularly scheduled con- certs, band and choir members often lend their talents to other school functions and to extracurricular activities. Thus, the skills acquired in their classes are often utilized in other phases of the students ' lives. Mr. Leonard W. Baber Concord College, B.S. Band Mrs. Flora K. Thompson Shenandoah Conservatory of Music, B.M. Choir Mr. Holbert presents the choir award to Connie Shires for Allan Tucker directs a choir class, her contributions as accompanist. Members of the advanced band practice marching in formation. 17 Art Study Gives Skills And Art Appreciation Students in art classes learn not only a creative form of self-expression but also real appreciation of such efforts by others. Under the direction of Miss Smith, they learn to work with paint, mosaics, and pot- tery. Such knowledge will provide one who has taken art with the skills for a pleasant and rewarding hobby. Unlike many other courses, art provides a student with tangi- ble evidence of his success and progress. The best creations produced during the year are displayed in an art show held in early spring. Art work in the form of scen- ery and backdrops for plays customarily wins accolades from audiences. Often, lat- ent talents are discovered through the completion of class projects; some students go on to study for careers in the field of art because of the pleasure and encour- agement they have derived from their high school art classes. Even if they themselves have little tal- ent, students learn a deeper and truer ap- preciation and understanding of painting and sculpture. Because of their study of the history of and present styles of art, they are better able to interpret the ideas or emotions which an artist attempts to express in his works. Miss Elizabeth C. Smith Mary Washington College, B.S. Parson ' s School of Design, Art Diploma Art; English Art Club Ronnie Hall and Bobby Smith watch as Miss Smith uses a picture to illustrate her explanation of mosaics. Frankie Hayslett, Barry Lugar, Leannah Looney, Betty Miller, and Valerie Newman prepare their entries for an art show. Diane Kellison, Steve Dressier, Donna Kelly, David Rollison, Billy Lowe, Steve Stull, Larry Dew, Jay Young, Leon Middleton, and Joe Mul- lens compile the results of a psychology survey. 18 Library Provides Invaluable Services To All Assistant Librarians: Rebekah Fridley, Barbara Howard, Pres- ton Boone, Leslie Kanney, Mary Kern, Fonda Curtis, Marshall Kelly, Barbara Bowen, Mickey Clemmons, Bonnie Taylor, Carmen Chambers, Lewis Mitchell, Pat Morgan, George Gar- ner, Karen Patrick, Alice Webb, Elizabeth Patterson, Linda Smith, Betty Jean Vess, Joe Rose, Kay King, Winona Kirby, Jeanette Armstrong, Carolyn Tyree, Brenda Bryant, Frank McCullough, Freddie Baker, Juanita Thompson, Marshall Leitch, Ardeth Gladwell, Linda Elmore, Phyllis Hepler, Mary Walton, Judy Tyree, Sammy Kitt, Bill Young, Wanda Kidd, Wanda Lee, and Donna Booze. Alleghany ' s library serves two main purposes for students. First, it is an invaluable source of informa- tion for those who are preparing essays, research re- ports, or term papers for their classes. Second, the library ' s large stock of books is more than adequate for those persons who read for pleasure or as a re- quired part of their courses. Its collections of novels, plays, short stories, poetry, biographies, and nonfic- tion accounts can satisfy almost any reading taste or need. Miss Wolfe and her staff of assistant librarians are always available to assist library users in locating spe- cific books or back issues of periodicals. Often, Miss Wolfe recommends books which she has found to be especially informative or entertaining. Records and films are available to faculty members to be used as additional teaching aids in classroom instruction. The main function of the library is service to students and teachers. Miss Wolfe places cards in books that have just been re- turned while Carmen Chambers enters the library. Miss Mary Helen Wolfe Randolph -Macon Woman ' s College, B.A. Librarian Foreign Languages Expand English Knowledge Foreign languages are often considered frivolous and worthless subjects. On the contrary, a knowledge of at least one foreign lan- guage can be beneficial to anyone. Because the English language has been derived from so many foreign tongues, knowledge of another language often helps to broaden one ' s English vocabulary. Such learn- ing also extends one ' s understanding of words already common to his vocabulary. Frequently, a reader can guess the meaning of an English word which is similar in spelling or pronunciation to a foreign term. Knowing the original meaning of a term often helps one to un- derstand the concept to which it has been attached and why it was first applied. Words from foreign languages are frequently found in medical, geographical, and scientific terms. Knowledge of a foreign language is especially helpful to a person who plans a career related to one of these fields. Doctors and pharm- acists in particular must conduct much of their business in a foreign language. Most language courses include a study of the locality where the language is commonly spoken. Geographical and cultural study of this type not only increases one ' s comprehension of the language but also broadens his concept and understanding of the people who speak it as a native language. Miss Lucy E. Gleason Lynchburg College, A.B. Latin Sponsor, Latin Club Mrs. Janet M. Morgan Radford College, B.A. English; French Mrs. Elizabeth L. Sumner Radford College, A.B. University of Virginia, M.Ed. Spanish; English Sponsor, Spanish Club David Smith concentrates on his Spanish homework. 20 A CHS Now Offers Three Foreign Languages Bunny Yachan, Eddie Morgan, Gary Anderson, and Cal- vin McClinton discuss a French lesson with Mrs. Morgan. Carl Nelson, Rob Loving, Bobby Smith, Routh Ann Dainty, Freddie Baker, and Reuben Noel appear amused at Alan Dale Craft ' s inability to answer the question which Mrs. Sumner has asked in Spanish. 21 Guidance Department Assists Students In Guidance in planning high school curricula and education after high school is essential to most students. For every student, a schedule of studies is made up each year. This schedule takes into account both the student ' s needs and abilities and his future plans. Such schedules are correlated to the three high school curricula offered; thus, each student is able to meet the requirements for a college preparatory, commercial, or general di- ploma. Guidance counselors often recommend courses that pert ain to a student ' s special interests. Tak- ing such courses enables one to formulate a pic- ture of his vocational possibilities. Specific courses may help an indecisive student to choose a career. In addition, free vocational aptitude tests are of- ten made available to seniors. There is further assistance available for college- bound students. Educational development and col- lege board tests indicate one ' s general areas of weakness and ability. The National Merit Scholar- ship test is given to those students in need of fi- nancial assistance. Counselors help a student select the college or colleges which fit his needs and whose requirements he meets, apply for ad- mission, and seek the necessary grants, aids, or scholarships. In aiding students who seek college admission, the guidance department must send transcripts and recommendations to each college. Only when the student has been accepted and the last grade sheet has been mailed is their job ended. Anthony Salyers confers with Miss O ' Farrell about his plans for education after high school.

Guidance English Students Gain Improved Communication One of the greatest problems of the world today is lack of effective communi- cation. Improved communication is the main goal of Alleghany ' s English depart- ment. One of the best indications that so- ciety places great value on this study is the fact that five years of English are a re- quired part of Alleghany ' s curricula. English skills are essential to all peo- ple; often, a man is judged by his ability to express himself. English teachers at ACHS strive to teach students to express their ideas more clearly. Grammar teaches these students the mechanics of proper English. Literature read by Alleghany ' s English classes demonstrates the ways in which the world ' s best writers have utilized language skills to make their works dy- namic rather than mediocre. Students at ACHS are taught improved methods of spoken and written communi- cation, By means of speeches, essays, and critical analyses, students are encouraged to express their own opinions and ideas. Grades which they receive and suggestions for improvement reveal to the students the flaws in their own skills. Mrs. Joyce W. Barber Madison College, B.A. English Sponsor, ALCOVA Miss Mary Litts Burt-on Madison College, B.A. English Sponsor, Senior Tri-Hi-Y Using drawings, Mrs. Barber illustrates incorrect methods of delivering a speech. 24 And Learn To Express Themselves More Clearly Mr. Robert Jefferies Emory and Henry College, B.A. Engl ish J.V.

Mathematics is one of the most funda- mental courses offered at ACHS. It is in- corporated in college preparatory, com- mercial, and general programs of study. To successfully complete the college pre- paratory program, students must take two years of algebra and one of geometry. Some college preparatory students also take trigonometry to extend their mathe- matical ba ckground for college. Commer- cial students must complete one year of bookkeeping in addition to other school re- quirements for graduation. All students are required to take eighth and ninth grade mathematics. Mathematical training not only pre- pares students for specific careers, but also enables them to compute correctly mathematical problems which arise in their vocations and daily lives. Mr. Joseph H. Carpenter Roanoke College, B.A. Math; U.S. History Baseball Mr. Lee A. Dunn West Virginia University, B.S., M.S. Math J.V. Football, Baseball 26 Math Skills Prepare Students For Careers Mr. E.

Chris Ivarsson appears intent as he tries to solve a problem in trigo- nometry. Phys. Ed. Develops Strength And Character Brenda Hayslett dives through the legs of Sandra Craft, who is doing a head stand. Development of mind and body is the aim of the phy- sical education department. Physical strength without corresponding sportsmanship is of little value. Supervised exercises, team sports, and individual achievements are designed to make all students more phy- sically fit. Individual excellence as well as team perform- ance are encouraged in all activities. Many who discover special athletic interests and abilities also participate in sports which are sponsored as a part of extracurricular ac- tivities. Even those who do not excel in sports find physical education an interesting and beneficial channel of rest and relaxation. Strong, healthy bodies which result from physical exercise contribute to students ' ability to use their full potentials for academic achievement. In addition to helping students develop physically, phy- sical education helps to build character. Students are en- couraged to do their best in all activities. High grades and a sense of accomplishment compose a double reward which encourages further effort. Group activities teach the value of teamwork to achieve common goals. In all en- deavors, fairness and sportsmanship are essential at- titudes. Miss Hoover and her physical education class practice correct bowling methods. Butch Lane and Tex Hazelwood perform a double forward roll during a special performance by the physical education classes. 28 Sherry Smith and Mike Brewbaker demon- strate tinkiling as Patsy Angle and Bill Downey await their turn.

By making proper measurements, they can estimate the frequency of a tuning fork. Experiments Typify Science Courses Alleghany ' s science department is one of the most active academic sections in the school. Science, as taught at ACHS is made an adventure in learning because it involves actual demonstrations and experi- ments, many of which are performed by the students themselves. Eighth grade science, ninth grade sci- ence or earth science, and biology are re- quired courses for all Alleghany students. Those students who wish to receive college preparatory diplomas must take chemistry. Physics is the most advanced science course offered at ACHS; students who take physics are usually those who plan a career in engineering or science. ACHS ' s two laboratories are well stock- ed with equipment and materials for scien- tific experiments. In eighth grade and earth science courses, students usually ob- serve experiments performed by their in- structors. Beginning with biology, students are encouraged to perform simple experi- ments related to the part of the course which they are studying. By performing such experiments, students are better able to realize the " cause and effect " prin- ciples of the more complex science forms. For all students, science provides a greater understanding and awareness of the world around them, as well as vast experience in solving problems and in discovering the laws governing these solutions.

Commercial courses at ACHS are de- signed for those students who plan to en- ter professions in the business world. These courses are taught both to those who de- sire to obtain permanent employment im- mediately after high school graduation and to those who will attend business col- leges and perhaps receive a degree. Students who wish to participate in the commercial program at ACHS are offered two years of typing, two years of short- hand, bookkeeping, business mathematics, office practice, and general business. Such a variety enables them to select the speci- fic area of business in which they feel that they are most capable and interested. High goals are set at the beginning of each school year by commercial students. Throughout the year, they endeavor to achieve these goals of speed and accuracy in completing their work. 33 Jackie Nicely and Brenda DePriest stretch a piece of fabric before cutting it to make a garment. Students Learn Useful Skills Home economics is a practical course. Skills which are acquired can be used in a most rewarding vocation, that of keeping house for one ' s family. One of the most outstanding skills which home economics stu- dents learn is sewing. As a part of their course, the girls are required to complete a garment during the year. They are taught the correct methods of stretching, cutting, and sewing their fabrics. These girls proudly model their completed articles of clothing in a fashion show which is sponsored by the Future Homemakers of America. In addition to sewing, students also receive information about nu- trition, personal grooming, cooking and canning, budgeting, clean- ing, and home nursing. In home economics, students learn by doing; often, their grades are based on their ability to perform required tasks. Mrs. Jane Harmon Madison College, B.S.

Students are assigned projects to be completed in their arts classes; the quality of the finished product determines a large part of their grades. 35 Mr. Anderson gives individual supervision in mechanical drawing. Social Studies Courses Satisfy Variety Of 8 U Social studies courses at ACHS are extreme- ly varied. Courses offered are eighth grade so- cial studies, civics, world history, world geo- graphy, American history, and United States government; most of these courses are requir- ed for all students. While most of the social studies courses concentrate on the United States and its rela- tions with other countries, some of the courses do deal with the world in general. World his- tory is a study of the main historic events from prehistoric ages up to the present time. World geography is an examination of all parts of the globe. This course includes the study of the en- vironmental factors, culture, and economic factors of most of the countries of the world. Civics is a generalized study of world history, geography, and sociology. Social studies serves many purposes. One of the most commonly recognized purposes is that of learning by past experiences. However, such courses also promote and expand world understanding by revealing factors which in- fluence the actions of people of other nation- alities.

Give Beneficial Skills Distributive Education students at Alleghany are first taught correct methods of merchandising in the classroom portion of their course; then with the aid of Mr. Duff, they locate jobs in local business firms. Being hired by a businessman begins the second im- portant phase of Distributive Education students ' in- struction, their on-the-job training. Although these students take written examinations and receive grades on their report cards, the real test of what the students have learned is their success in their jobs. Distributive Education enables students to formu- late ideas of the types of careers they wish to pursue after graduation. In addition, they receive work ex- perience which will prove invaluable when they apply for permanent positions. In Drivers ' Education, students learn safe driving procedures and gain practice and skill. This knowledge will make them better drivers than those who have not taken the course. Besides improving their performance records, Drivers ' Education provides students with knowledge of the functioning of various parts of a car; such information might prove to be useful if the car should fail to operate properly. As an added bonus students who successfully complete the course are eligible for insurance discounts. Wilma Banker consults Mr. Duff about local job opportunities. Mr. Richard C.

Hiawatha Nicely presides during the courtroom scene of the Senior Class Play, Tammy Tell Me True. Bring Students Together After School Hours At ACHS the good times begin when the school day ends. Ranging from casual sock-hops to formal dances, the social functions are many and varied. Beginning this year ' s activities was the Homecom- ing Dance following the Homecoming Game. Athough Alleghany lost this important game, the defeat did not dampen the spirits of the students as they proudly chose Betty Bush to reign as Homecoming Queen for 1966. For the first time this year, the junior class present- ed a class play. Our Town, under the skilled direction of Miss Mary Litts Burton. In keeping with tradition the seniors presented a class play of their own. Under the combined leadership of Mrs. Bush, Mrs. Barber, and Mrs. Jonas, Tammy Tell Me True was a tremend- ous success. To the delight of all students, the FHA once again sponsored the annual Christmas Formal, while the Senior Tri-Hi-Y presented the Sweetheart Dance. Con- nie Shires and John Swartz won the approval of all present as they were chosen Queen and King of the Sweetheart Dance. Once again, the junior class worked many long hours to favor the seniors with a Prom which would not easily be forgotten. " Isle of Enchantment, " an elabor- ate Hawaiian theme, will be long remembered by all who attended. After much deliberation by a panel of unbiased judges, Paula Sue Traylor was chosen from a group of twelve young ladies to re ign as Miss Alcova for 1967. David Smith was selected " Boy of the Year " by the popular vote of the senior class on the basis of leader- ship, sportsmanship, scholarship, and general charac- ter. Bringing the year to a close were those activities de- signed only for seniors. The Senior Banquet gave the students an opportunity to re-establish forgotten friendships and strengthen old ones as they gathered for an evening of fun and relaxation. With gradua- tion, the seniors closed another chapter in the book of their lives, but as each set out on his separate way he knew that he would never forget the valuable lessons and happy memories he gained as a member of the " team " of 1967 graduates. Homecoming Begins The Year’s Activities As John Bradley, Jeanne Walton, Walter Seidel, Gale Thrasher, David Chamberlain, Blair Wilhelm, Carolyn Dressier, and Pete Nicely Smith, Paula Sue Traylor, Betty Bush, Roger Daniel, Thaddea paused before the student body during the presentation assembly. Alleghany ' s Homecoming activities of 1966 were begun by a combined assembly and pep rally during which the six lovely candidates vying for the honor of queen were presented to the student body. To the delight and surprise of all, Coach Leon Potter sang " Three Coins in a Fountain. " As the student body voted for the can- didate of their choice and the time drew closer to name a Homecoming Queen, the air grew tense with excitement. During the half time ceremonies of the Homecoming Game, tension broke into joy as Betty Bush was crowned Homecoming Queen of 1966 by the President of the Alleghany Athletic Association, Mr. Phil Crawford. Streamers in the traditional school col- ors of red, white, and blue decorated the gym for the Homecoming Dance as stu- dents and alumni enjoyed the music of a live combo. Adding to the excitement was the Queen ' s Dance in honor of the newly chosen queen and her court. After the crowning of the Homecoming Queen, Pete Nicely, Carolyn Dressier, Thaddea Chamberlain, Roger Daniel, Betty Bush, Walter Seidel, Gale Thrasher, fore the crowd as the band played a coronation selection in honor of the newly 42 Betty Bush Is Chosen Homecoming Queen Moments before the presentation assembly, Paula Sue Traylor, Jeanne Walton, and Carolyn Dressier made last minute preparations in a flurry of excitement.

" 43 Junior Class Proved Its Skill By This year, for the first time, the Junior Class pre- sented its class play. Under the skilled direction of Miss Mary Litts Burton, the talented juniors performed before the student body in Thornton Wilder ' s Our Town. Set in Grover ' s Corners in the early 1 900 ' s, Act I of Our Town told of the daily lives of ordinary people in a small town. Act II represented love and marriage in the rural community while Act III dealt with death among its citizens. This simple play typified the lives of the average American family. Alleghany ' s gifted juniors proved themselves capable of a serious undertaking and, through the combined ef- fort of the entire junior class, this project was a complete success.

In the center of the gym was a gaily decorated Christmas tree accented by muted colored flowing streamers transforming the gym into a vision of love- liness for this festive occasion. Girls glided by on Brisendine, and Hunter Fridley seemed enchanted by the lovely music and beautiful decorations of the season. clouds of happiness and with stars in their eyes as they danced to the music of the Fabulous Cobras for this most important event of the season. Enchanted by the flowing music and soft lights, happy couples silently wished they could have danced longer as the Christmas Formal drew to a close and marked another memorable evening for all those who attended. 47 Roger Daniel, Betty Bush, Karen Patrick, and Hiawatha Nicely paused before the trophy case during intermission. Dancing patterns were complete- ly reversed as students followed the calls of square dancing. Students Went “Country” For Sadie Hawkins Patterns of dancing, dating, and dressing were completely reversed for Alleghany ' s annual Sadie Hawkins Dance. Boys were again reminded how it feels to worry about a date as they anxiously waited to be patched by the girls. This new custom consisted of a girl and boy wearing identical patches to let the other students know that they had a date. Admission for this totally different dance was set at one quarter, one dime, two nickels, and thirteen pennies. Accenting this zany mood, the gym was decorated in typical barnyard fashion. Dancing did an about-face as students vainly tried to keep in step to the calls of square dances. Highlighting the evening was the selection of the two best dressed people in Dogpatch. Elvin Nicely and Mary Kathryne Wicker were chosen Little Abner and Daisy Mae, and embarrassingly displayed their gifts to the rest of the citizens of Dogpatch. All those who participated in this unique dance certainly had an unforgettable time. Elvin Nicely, chosen Little Abner, and Mary Kathryne Wicker, selected Daisy Mae, seemed embarrassed as they displayed their gifts. 49 Connie Shires Was Chosen Sweetheart Queen Debbie Fore, Jonathan Williams, and Susan Carver were served refreshments during in- termission.

Highlighting the Valentine spirit at ACHS was the Sweetheart Dance spon- sored annually by the Senior Tri-Hi-Y. In keeping with the theme, " Song in My Heart, " all the decorations were done in forms of sheet music. This unique idea cer- tainly added an extra something special to the occasion. Students danced to the rhyth- mic tunes of The Rising Tides as they pro- vided many varied musical selections. The main event of the evening was the selection of the king and queen. Connie Shires, chosen queen, was presented with a bouquet of a dozen long-stemmed red roses, and John Swartz, named king, was presented with a red rose boutonniere. Fol- lowing the presentation was the Queen ' s Dance honoring the newly chosen king and queen and their court. All those who at- tended this event certainly spent an enjoy- able evening. Gwen Fisher and Earnest Nick, and Susan Carver and Lewis Mitchell preferred to relax during a fast number. 51 Jim Faidley, Betty Miller, David Smith, Mary Walton, and Allan Tucker listened to the direc- tion of Mrs. Rebecca Jonas during a rehearsal.

" This was the mood established as the curtain rose on Alleghany ' s Senior Class Play, TAMMY TELL ME TRUE. Students and advisors admired their art work as scenery changes set the ap- propriate mood for the actors. Ingenuity was apparent as the audience viewed a shanty boat, a gigantic tree, and a col- lege campus. Promotion for the play consisted of posters placed in advantageous spots in the school and community, an appear- ance on a Roanoke TV station, and an- nouncements appearing periodicall y on the local radio stations. Mary Walton was a perfectly lovely shanty boat girl who planned to go to college. David Smith and Allan Tucker were quite capable in their roles of be- ing Tammy ' s loves. Jim Faidley played an incredibly believable role as grand- pa. He was a typical corn liquor distiller of the South. Betty Miller made an out- standing transformation from a sad old woman to a lively Shanty-boat Annie. Working together as a team, the var- ious committees with the help of Mrs. Jonas, Mrs. Bush and Mrs. Barber achieved a production which made the audience laugh with jubilance, cry with sorrow, and rejoice with a " happily ever after " ending.

" 55 1967 Senior Banquet Was A Memorable Evening ACHS ' s senior class held its annual banquet at the Moose Lodge. This was one time that the seniors had an opportunity to gather and relax with their classmates. Beginning the evening was a buffet dinner which included a variety of delicious foods. Later, the students danced to the music of The Mystery Men. Because it was meant for seniors only, this banquet had a special significance. Al- though it was a time of fun and relaxation, the students rea- lized that it meant that their high school years were drawing to a close. As students depart- ed from their final social func- tion they understood that this had been a time to reestab- lish forgotten friendships and strengthen old ones. Rebekah Fridley, Virgil Lewis, and Max- ine Combs relaxed during dinner.

After dinner, Paul Warwick and Paula Sizemore; Steve Byerly and Barbara Ann Fisher; Paula Sue Traylor and Christer Ivarsson; and Susan Loomis and Jim Faidley enjoyed dancing to the music of The Mystery Men. Juniors Worked Frantically To Complete Prom Donna Bruffey, Jennifer Wright, Pauline Noel, Kathy Wright, Donna Booze, and Elvin Nicely painted frantically to complete the steamboat mural while other junior class members prepared to hang streamers. 58 1967 Prom Theme was “ Isle Of Enchantment” mmt if : Once again, the juniors worked many long hours to favor the senior class with a prom thct would long be remembered. Many various committees were set up to cover all aspects of this important dance. There was a theme to be decided upon, painting to be done, props to be built, and entertainment to be planned. Despite all this work, how- ever, the members of the junior class enjoyed every minute of the time and energy they spent on this prom. Girls in long, flowing gowns with dreamy looks in their eyes and boys in handsome dinner jackets stopped to admire the trophy case as they were introduced to the theme of the prom, " Isle of Enchant- ment. " Fishnets, sand, and seashells combined to set the mood for this unique theme. Authenticity was prevalent from the moment of entrance. Stepping into the tropical paradise, the couples were greeted by gay Hawaiian girls who presented colorful leis to each one as a sign of friendliness and welcome. Accenting the theme was a realistically constructed grass hut and a colorful fountain complete with small pebbles and blossoming flowers. Danny Wolfe and Mary Walton paused before the trophy case to admire the entrance to the prom. Eva Miller and Jimmy Mays stopped at the thatched hut to chat with Keith Scruggs and Sherry Howard about the authenticity of the prom. Julianne Prishtash and Steve Crawford, Chipper Farmer and Karen Johnson, Paul Warwick and Patsy Nicely, and Liz Patterson and Victor Fury danced to the music of the Gene Thomas Orchestra during the Senior Dance. Solemn feelings came over the seniors as each one took his place for the Grand March. Senior and junior class officers led this stately march as the remaining members of the senior class completed it. At the end of the March, there was a special dance meant exclusively for those who took part in the Grand March. It was evident that much planning and practice went into the entertainment. Eight junior girls proved their ability as Hawaiian dancers as they presented three traditional hula dances. Tommy Herald added a bit of comedy as he proved his gracefulness by his rendition of a very " serious " hula dance. To the delight of all present, Gale Thrasher and Cody Ross were crowned Queen and King of the prom. Donna Simpson and Max Shawver were chosen by their classmates to reign as Princess and Prince. Each one was crowned with a jeweled crown discovered in a buried treasure chest. Junior girls cFiarmed the audience with an authentic hula dance. 60 Students Chose Prince And Princess, King And Queen Of Junior-Senior Prom To the delight of everyone present, Donna Simpson and Max Shawver were chosen Princess and Prince and Gale Thrasher and Cody Ross were selected King and Queen. 6! As The Prom Drew To A Close, The Seniors All Treasured Its Last Moments There were many mixed emotions as all the couples departed from this glorious " Isle of En- chantment. " Members of the junior class certainly shared a thrilling sense of accomplishment from presenting such a lovely prom, which the seniors left with a bit of sorrow in their hearts. Although they had had a wonderful time, the seniors real- ized that this was their last high school prom. They were sure to treasure these precious mo- ments for the rest of their lives. C. L. Hylton and Donna Simpson; Anthony Saylers and Patsy Nicely; and Connie Shires and Allen Rogers were served refreshments as they were entertained by members of the junior class. David Rollison and Sarah Akers reminisced over the wonderful evening as they left their final prom. Twelve Girls Vied For Miss A leova One of the most outstanding moments of the school year, both for the student body and the girls involved, was the selection of Miss Alcova. Members of the senior class nominated twelve girls who best represented Alleghany in all as- pects of school life. In addition, these girls must have possessed such qualities as poise, personal- ity, attractiveness, and knowledge of current events. Of all those girls nominated, the twelve who received the most votes were chosen to vie for the coveted title of Miss Alcova of 1967. These twelve girls were then screened by a panel of unbiased judges, two who were faculty members and three who were qualified residents of the com- munity. Contestants were asked various questions from the areas of school spirit, dating habits, cur- rent events, poise, and general character. Al- though the choice was a hard one, the judges made their decision after much careful considera- tion and deliberation. Betty Bush, Patsy Nicely, Paula Sue Traylor, Connie Shires and Mary Kathryne Wicker showed the exhilaration and joy which came with being tapped for Miss Alcova. In honor of Miss Alcova, a special assembly was held. In keeping with tra- dition, the future mem- bers of the annual staff tapped the runners-up with roses, while the present editor presented a bouquet of a dozen long-stemmed red roses to Paula Sue Traylor, Miss Alcova of 1967 . Betty Bush, Jeanne Walton, Darlene Tucker, Paula Sizemore, Bobbie Johnson, Donna Kelly, Paula Sue Traylor, Gale Thrasher, Mary Kathryne Wicker, Connie Shires, Mary Ellen Byers, and Patsy Nicely tried to relax before their interview. Mrs. White, Mr. Anderson, Mr. Fridley, Miss Pauley, and Mrs. Warlither looked over some of the questions which they would ask the contestants. 65 Paula Sue Traylor was Selected Miss Alcova Of 1967 Paula Sue T raylor, Miss Alcova of 1 967, was tapped with a dozen long-stemmed red roses.

During her |unior year, she was an exchange stu- dent to Cold Springs Harbor High School in Long Island, New York. She also won the DAR citizenship award, the senior citizenship award for girls, and the choir award for being pianist. MARY KATHRYNE WICKER Runners-Up Were All Outstanding Mary Kathryne Wicker, first runner-up, was tapped with six red roses.

Patsy Nicely was tapped third runner-up. Patsy was a member of the girls ' basketball team and won the award for the most im- proved player.

BETTY BUSH David Smith Was Chosen By The Senior Class David Smith was chosen " Boy of the Year " by the members of the senior class. He was presented an engraved trophy by Mary Kathryne Wicker dur- ing a special assembly. 68 For the first time this year, the senior class of ACHS voted for the one boy who best repre- sented their school, and especially, their senior class. Basing their opinions on the outstanding qualities of character, leadership, sportsman- ship, and scholarship, the members of the sen- ior class used their best judgment when mak- ing this important decision. Through the popular vote of his classmates, David Smith was chosen as Alleghany ' s first " Boy of the Year. " In his roles both at school and in the community, he has exhibited many outstanding qualities. He was not afraid to be an individual, nor did he depend upon the crowd for his standards and his way of life. His sportsmanship and athletic abilities were proved many times by his active participation in the fields of football, track, and wrestling. Scholarship spoke for itself, as he graduated an honor student of the Class of ' 67. With the selection of the first " Boy of the Year, " a new tradition was set at ACHS. As a member of the football team, David (40) served as a defensive halfback for two years. To Be Alleghany’s First “ Boy Of The Year” One of David ' s responsibilities as editor of the Alcova was presenting the dedication pages to Mr. Charles Walker during a special assembly.

This time was filled with the preparation for the ceremony, Senior Play, Senior Banquet, Junior-Senior Prom, and final exams. Throughout the present activities, seniors looked forward to their individual futures. Becky Anderson received the valedictory award from Mr. Holbert for her outstanding academic performance. Mr. Cvizic read a letter of congratulations from President Johnson to the graduates of ACHS. 73 Seniors Received Their Final Report Cards Each senior realized that Alleghany was merely a stepping stone into the future. College, trade school, military service or immediate employment — these were among the many decisions which faced seniors. No crystal ball could be used to predict their future success and happiness. Their vocational choice was one of their most important decisions and they real- ized it was their decision alone. As the moment of graduation heightened, all seniors reviewed the past years spent at Alleghany. They reviewed the knowl- edge gained, friends made, and tasks finished throughout their learning years at ACHS. As his class- mates received their diplomas, each looked with sor- row, realizing that this meant the eventual separation of a group that seemed so compatible. Each senior knew this group as the " Class of ' 67 " and treasured his place among the other members. Turning the tassels brought mixed emotions to the new graduates. These ranged from wide smiles of ac- complishment to tears of joy and sorrow. As they marched out of the auditorium, they realized that they had just stepped into their long awaited future, now making it their present. Honor graduates Becky Anderson, Donna Kelly, David Smith, Connie Shires, Mary Walton and Bruce Kesterson lead the seniors as they marched from the auditorium for the final time. After graduation, Mike Via received his final report card while Loretta Hepler waited to turn in her cap and gown. Sports Hiawatha Nicely has a chance to show individual ability while remain- ing a member of the baseball team. Alleghany ' s students show pride in their school ' s athletic teams through the enthusiasm they exhibit at pep rallies. Boost Student Morale And Pride In Alleghany At Alleghany, six major sports are offered on levels designed to reach all students. There are athletics in which teamwork is an essential component, and there are athletic activities intended to display the individ- ual ' s ability. Students who engage in either type of sports learn that as individuals they contribute to the teamwork needed for victory while team membership in turn aids in the development of individual skills. For the team-minded student, Alleghany offers football, basketball, baseball, and cheerleading. There are eighth grade, J.V. and varsity squads formed in three of these fields (excepting baseball) in order to cover every age student. There has been a girls ' bas- ketball team formed to suit the needs of that particu- lar group, also. Teamwork in all of these sports is one of the decisive factors which determine the success or failure of a season ' s labors. At the same time the team sports are in full swing, the varied athletic program at ACHS offers the in- dividual sports to provide equivalent opportunities for all students. Individual sports include cross-country. wrestling, and track. In these three fields, boys of all grade levels are permitted to attempt to make the team. Wins and losses are determined by the individ- uals ' abilities and scores. Teamwork is not necessarily the essential ingredient for success in these fields be- cause each athlete works on his own to improve the total team score. Performances are individual and not a result of team cooperation. One athlete may compile an impressive record and win many honors, but the team may not experience a successful season. Obviously ACHS employs a successful athletic pro- gram due to the wide range of sports offered. Athletes who become proficient in an individual sport often find that they can contribute vitally to a team sport, while the knowledge gained through working with the team can result in an athlete ' s acquiring an outstand- ing individual skill. Enthusiastic participation is im- portant in every aspect of athletics because it event- ually leads to the development of the whole personali- ty of the individual through his contribution to the team or his development of a singular talent.

In their meeting with Rockbridge, Alleghany was again unable to score a victory. Scoring a 28-0 victory, the Rebels defeated a Colt team that was not able to generate an attack. Wilson Memorial handed the Colts their final defeat by scoring a 27-6 win. Alleghany managed to get on the scoreboard dur- ing the fourth quarter. Blair Wilhelm tossed a six yard pass to Steve Crawford for the touchdown During this rebuilding season, inexperience and injuries played a major part in the 2-7 record but the Colts have bright hopes for the future. Pete Nicely and Edward Smith tried to bring down B. C. Williams of Clifton Forge while Jerome Davis rushed in to help. John Bradley was tackled by Theodore Mader and Gary Long of Riverheads as Coach Poffer, the backfield coach, and the rest of the team looked on from the sidelines. 80 Mountineers Defeated Alleghany Colts Blair Wilhelm rolled around the right end while Merritt Belew and Steve Shrum of V.S.D.B. attempted to bring him down.

Nine girls attended a cheerleading camp for all the girls in the state dur- ing the summer. After school every day these girls, headed by Betty Bush, practiced in order to teach the newest cheers and chants to the student body. By displaying school spirit at all times, the cheerleaders instilled more spirit and loyalty in the students. During games that we were losing, through the tireless efforts of the cheerleaders, the spectators always remained behind the boys. By faithfully cheering at the Varsity football and basketball away games, they encouraged every team member to try harder to win for Al- leghany. Game attendance was in- creased by pep rallies and skits before the important games. Posters and ban- ners for the halls were made during the entire year.

Of course, the bouncy eighth grade cheerleaders put the vitality of the " Baby Colts " into every cheer. Eighth graders often had their individual pep ral- lies. Yells echoed through the halls as each cheer- leader accomplished the task of instilling spirit and drive in the students and in the players. Even in moments of crushing defeat the " Baby Colts " cheerleaders kindled spirit into the hearts of the players. Good sportsmanship was also one of the main drives of the eighth grade cheering squad. At the end of the athletic season, these cheer- leaders put away their uniforms and anxiously began working for a place on the Junior Varsity cheering squad.

By taking part in these organizations an in- dividual is brought out. Frequently classroom activi- ties extend into these organizations and help the stu- dent decide what his future career will be. Such clubs at ACHS are the Art Club, the Distributive Education Club, the Future Business Leaders of America, and the Future Homemakers of America. To encourage foreign languages, there are Spanish and Latin clubs. Also there are clubs for people with special interests. Prospective teachers delight in the FTA, while girls who are thinking of a nursing career enjoy the FNC. For girls and boys with high ideals and convictions there are the T ri-Hi-Y and Key clubs. Boys who have won their athletic letters are automatically members of the Varsity Club. Students who are interested in music are members of the Choir or Band. These are elective courses. Two other electives are for students who enjoy journalism — the ALCOVA staff and the PATRIOT staff. Probably the most important organization at ACHS is the SCA. This organization permits the entire stu- dent body to express their opinions through elected representatives. They work together to improve the school for every student. ACHS ' s clubs vary their activities by sponsoring dances, bake sales, or assembly programs. They also go on field trips, have guest speakers and film strips pertaining to their particular interests. It is no accident that there is such a variety of group activities at ACHS. This diversity is meant to satisfy the diversity of individual interests. S.C.A.

Supporting this organization is every in- dividual ' s responsibility at Alleghany County High School. S.C.A. officers are elected by the entire student body and homerooms are represented at all S.C.A. meetings by either the homeroom repre- sentative or an alternate. One of the many activities of the S.C.A. is to sell ice cream during the four lunch periods. Usually, this is done by John Bradley, the club president, or another student appointed by John. Every spring a campaign and election are held to elect the new officers. This is one of the most active weeks in the school year. John Bradley sells ice cream to Glenna Treynor. 115 Key Club Members Sell Birthday Calendars Jim Faidley, president, discusses the selling of birthday calendars with Mike Sams, Jim Kelly, Anthony Salyers, Allen Rogers, John Barineau, Keith Scruggs, John Swartz, Steve Crawford, Bill Hum- bert, Steve Dressier, Max Shawver, Randy Stair, Tommy Herald, Lewis Mitchell, Steve Byerly, David Smith, David Rogers, Roy Swartz, Paul Warwick, Ronnie Spellman, Mike Scruggs, Mr. Pot- ter, sponsor, Donnie Buzzard, Mike Thompson, Bruce Swartz, Charlie Burr.

They learn the Tri-Hi-Y purpose which will be in effect later in the Senior Tri-Hi-Y. Also, they uphold the principles of their organization. Being affiliated with the Y.M.C.A., these girls try to have a better moral and religious understanding. This understanding will help these girls accept their places in Senior Tri-Hi-Y and also in later life. During monthly meetings, their programs consist of lectures, films, guest speakers and panel discussions. Each member takes part in these meetings in some way.

Mem- bers of the club are either participants in football, track, basketball, cross country, wrestling, or baseball. To win a letter in football or baseball, an athlete must play a certain length of time designated at the beginning of the season. In basketball, due to the size of the team, everyone wins a letter. In cross country, track and wrestling, letters are given on the basis of points earned and ability shown. Selling ACHS sweat shirts is the main project of ACHS ' s Varsity Club. This project covers the cost of the annual Varsity Club picnic held each spring. All members and their guests are invited to this picnic. Different sports are played at the picnic between these athletes and are enjoyed by all. Athletes are honored by being in the Varsity Club. All the students of ACHS admire these boys and their coaches. Also, the hard work that each boy expends in participating in his chosen sport is realized through his membership in the club. 121 Future Teachers Learn Of Chosen Profession First row: Sue Wolfe, Paulo Sizemore, Kathy Arritt, Sharon Hop- kins, Susan Persinger.

This year is the first year that the FTA has been organized at ACHS. Among their ac- tivities are having bake sales, sponsoring sock hops, and holding their annual picnic. Also, they do substitute teaching and observe teach- ers ' classes. By doing this, the FTA members realize the importance of a teacher ' s job. Having special programs and speakers help the FTA members to develop character, indi- viduality, and leadership. While teaching a class, a member of the FTA employs unusual punishment on an unruly student, Gary Ander- son.

Participating in activities pertaining to the medical field, the members help the area nurses give the T.I.N.E. tests to all eighth grade students at ACHS. These tests are given to detect the possibility of tuber- culosis in any of these students. Also, the members of the FNC visit area hospitals to learn more about the career which they are going into. In addition, they have student and registered nurses to come and speak to the girls in order to help them understand just what is involved in becoming a nurse. Sponsored by Mrs. Shelor, the Future Nurses Club has become affiliated with the National League of Nursing. This is the same organization to which all registered and student nurses belong. At the close of this school year the members got to- gether for one final activity which was a picnic. Every- one expressed complete satisfaction in the results of the picnic and also in the other activities of the club. Bringing together young girls interested in careers in medicine and performing services beneficial to the community and school is the goal of the Future Nurses Club. Numerous persons are benefitted, due to the ef- forts exhibited by Future Nurses Club members. Also, through their knowledge in First Aid their help is greatly appreciated. Success and achievement is evident as the club ac- quires rewards from hours of hard work, thus making Alleghany proud of this fine organization. 123 Future Homemakers Present Fashion Show Two basic elements are required of the Future Homemakers of America: home economics must be one of their subjects, and the girls must show a definite interest in the art of homemaking. Those meeting the requirements are welcomed into the F.H.A. by its co-sponsors, Mrs. Perdue and Mrs. Harmon. F.H.A. members sponsor many of Al- leghany ' s social events; two of these are the Christmas Formal and the Sadie Haw- kins Dance. They also serve for several of the school banquets. In the spring the club holds its annual Mother-Daughter Banquet and a fashion show. In this fashion show each member models the garment which she made dur- ing the year.

Club Holds District Conference In June many of the Alleghany County High School graduates are prepared to meet their first challenges in the business world because of the Distributive Edu- cation Club Largely responsible for these trained minds is Mr. Duff, sponsor. He teaches the funda- mentals of merchandising, such as appropriate man- ners and sales tact. Carrying this training outside the classroom, each member has a job after school. Most of the members leave school early in order to work a half day at some local business. No member abuses his job be- cause he is given a grade for his performance on the job. Each year the District Convention is held. This year it was held at Alleghany County High School. There were D. E. representatives from the entire western part of Virginia. The convention proved to be a huge suc- cess. This year at the annual spring banquet George Kos- tel, local delegate to the Virginia General Assembly, was guest speaker. He was enjoyed by all members of the D. E. Club attending. The members of the ACHS D. E. Club strive for high standards in salesmanship, and these are attain- ed with the help of Mr. Duff and local merchants.

" " Did you say the deadline is to- morrow? " " What do you mean we are out of lay-out sheets?! " These are the typical shattering questions heard from room 107 near the end of any school day. This year with David Smith as editor, Donna Kelly as copy-editor, Paula Sue Traylor as lay-out edi- tor, and Mrs. Joyce Barber as spon- sor, the annual staff endeavored to create a unique yearbook. Each person was responsible for a section of the book, but combin- ed efforts were used to make ma- jor decisions. Along with Mrs. Barber, two members of the staff attended the Southern Inter-Scholastic Press As- sociation in order to learn new journalistic styles. Also, the staff attended a Delmar Yearbook Workshop to acquire some fresh ideas. Through moments of hard work and frustration, the staff still de- lighted in the creation of the ALCOVA. Deciding on the type for the ' 67 ALCOVA, the entire staff ex- Becky Anderson, Donna Kelly, Wendell Alfred, Lewis Mitchell, amines the examples of the different styles. Staff members: Mary Paula Sue Traylor, David Smith, and Mrs. Joyce Barber, sponsor. Kathryne Wicker, Barbara Ann Fisher, Thaddea Chamberlin, Deciding on the lay-out for the opening section, is one of the many decisions of the tri- editors, David Smith, Donna Kelly and Paula Sue Traylor. 136 PA TRIOT Staff Presents News As It Happens PATRIOT members, Nancy Nicely, Luana Nicely, Virgil Lewis, Jeanne Walton, Gale Thrasher, Ella Downey, Judy Tyree and Mary Ann Byer, Susan Loomis, Montrue Fourqurean, Sue Wolfe, Leslie Kanney anxiously await the first copies of a new edition. Uppermost in the aims of the PATRIOT staff is bringing the latest news to the students in an accurate way. This is accomplished un- der the guidance of Mrs. Rebecca Jonas. PATRIOT staff members work hard in get- ting the news ready for publication. Reporting organizations ' activities, sports and extracur- ricular activities, the staff reaches and main- tains the students ' interests. ACHS ' s paper is distributed once a month with several special editions. Included in the final issue of the PATRIOT, which is dedicated to the Class of ' 67, are class prophecies, Last Will and Testaments, and Senior Superlatives. Vital to the functioning of any newspaper is a hard working editor. Sue Wolfe, serving as editor of the ' 67 PATRIOT, ably led the staff in accumulating a fine production record. Much hard work goes into publishing a school paper, but this immense task is accom- plished by the PATRIOT staff members. Concentrating on classroom instruction are Vickie Reid, Sue Wolfe, Jeanne Walton, Luana Nicely, Judy Tyree, Susan Loomis, Bonnie Smith, Nancy Nicely, Leslie Kanney, Marshall Leitch, Virgil Lewis, Gale Thrasher, Eddie Morgan and Ella Downey. 137 Art Club Members Hold Annual Exhibition Those who take art and have a desire to acquire more knowledge about this subject join the Art Club. Miss Smith, sponsor, offers competent guidance and assistance whenever she is called upon. The Art Club has a showing on television, when ACHS students visit " Saturday Session. " Also, after the Baccalaureate services at Alleghany, they hold their annual art exhibition. This gives the public an opportunity to view the works of art that the first and second year students turn out. Each viewer has only praise for these high school students ' artistry. Not only is art a vocation for those who are artis- tically inclined, but also it serves as a relaxing hobby. With the guidance of Miss Smith every member en- joys his work. Meeting once a month, the Art Club has lectures and demonstrations concerning the different types of paintings, ceramics, and collages. By making available such interest-developing or- ganizations as the Art Club, Alleghany County High School has further accomplished its goals in the edu- cation of a developing generation.

Many worthwhile hours go into preparing for its major performances, the Christmas Concert and the Spring Concert. Not only does the choir sing for school assemblies, but also it sings at banquets and local meetings. This year, along with Mrs. Thompson as director, the choir has a student director, Allan Tucker. During each performance, Allan takes over for at least one number. Baccalaureate marks the final appearance of the choir. Seniors and guests are grateful for the air of solemnity added by the choirs ' performance. Each year the choir performs at various school events, and the applause given is received with hardy appreciation by its members. Most of the students ' ap- preciation, however, is centered around the enjoyable times spent in preparing for these performances. Allan Tucker sings " Old Man River " in the Spring Concert. 139 Band And Choir ACHS ' s band finds that a good performance re- quires many hours of practicing. Band and choir classes combine their tal- ents to favor students and community citizens with a period of musical enjoyment. They pre- sent two separate spring concerts, one for the student body in the morning and one for the community in the evening. This year choir members made a spectacu- lar hit as the curtain rose and the audience viewed the boys in white dinner jackets and the girls in lovely pastel formals. Solos were sung by Allan Tucker and Calvin McClinton. These were " Old Man River " and " I Got Plen- ty of Nuttin " respectively. After several renditions of spiritual and popular music were completed, the choir received hardy applause. Opening the 1967 spring band concert, Steve Young played an intricate clarinet solo. Quite appealing to the audience was the band ' s medley of tunes from THE SOUND OF MUSIC. The final selection in the medley, " Climb Every Mountain, " received resounding applause. As a whole, the spring concert at Alleghany was a magnificent performance by high school students. Everyone anxiously waits to see how ACHS will top this year ' s performance. Steve Young plays a solo on his clarinet. Students Present An Excellent Performance Mr. Baber introduces Steve Young ' s solo during the spring concert.

During half-time, the air is filled with the music of the band. Their strenuous hours of practice prove worthwhile when they perform in the Christmas pageant. They present spiritual as well as frolicking Christmas music. They appear in several other local parades throughout the year. Also, they go to Vinton to perform in the Dogwood Fes- tival and this year they performed in the Farmers ' Day Parade. Under the direction of Mr. Leonard Baber, the band com- bines with the choir to present a Spring Concert. The last performance presented by the band this year was playing for the graduation ceremonies at Clifton Forge-Cov- ington Community College. Alleghany County High School Band is always ready to pro- vide music to raise enthusiasm at football games and create a proper atmosphere for school assemblies. Steve Young, Eugenia Hoke, Carolyn Honts, Judy Deisher, Tommy Callaghan, Janice Williams, Phil Eaton, Emma Hoke, Thomas Wade, Karen Hoke, Curtis Nelson, Billy Lowry, William VanLear, Charlie Burr, and Pam Smith led the band up the football field during half- time of the Covington-Alleghany game. 1 43 K. V.G. ’s Protect Area From Threatening Fires KVGs are boys who are dedicated to the purpose of preserving Virginia ' s forests. These boys are trained by local forest rangers to fight Virginia ' s forests ' deadliest enemy — fire. Millions of dollars of damage are reported each year not only from fire but also be- cause of flood due to the lack of timber. Loss of for- est timber also results in erosion of valuable top soil. Alleghany ' s KVGs are especially active in their par- ticipation in this organization because of the location of their homes. County students are constantly aware of the threat of fire to their homes. Also, most of the boys enjoy Virginia ' s wildlife. They all wish to protect the animals and also their habitat. Each year, the fir st year KVG members are excused from school one day to learn the methods of fire-fighting. These boys wear their old clothes to school but they look worse than ever when the day is completed. Tired and weary, they go home with their newly acquired knowledge fresh in their minds. Alleghany ' s Keep Virginia Green boys are ever on call to fight to protect their surrounding area. Work- ing together as a team, these ACHS students make a unique contribution to school and to community through the protection of Virginia ' s forests.

U4 Mr. Osborne, Mrs. Kitt Render Services To A CHS No school can function without proper care and constant maintenance. Much of the day-to-day maintenance in and around a school building is taken for granted, and those at- tending school tend to forget that these menial chores have to be done by someone. ACHS is fortunate to have two able people, Mr. Dave Osborne and Mrs. Hettie Kitt, who take great pride in the school and do much to see that the interior and exterior of the building are always in commendable condi- tion. Mr. Osborne has many responsibilities which he performs punctually as well as capably. The complaints he receives may sometimes be tiresome and irritating, but he listens, then will- ingly tries to improve the unpleasant situation. Mrs. Kitt ' s duties are wide and varied, but she manages to accomplish each of these tasks in a quiet, methodical way. Her humble, unassuming attitude and helpful manner have won for her the respect of the students and faculty alike. Both of these little-recognized people have thankless jobs which require more time and energy than most persons real- ize. Not only are these two faithful employees, but they are also staunch supporters of all of Alleghany ' s activities. Mr. Osborne and Mrs. Kitt deserve a lot of credit for what they do for ACHS. Mr. Osborne begins his day by checking the furnaces to insure proper functioning. Mrs. Kitt performs one of her routine tasks, cleaning the windows in the cafeteria doors. 145 Students Susan Loomis often finds her locker a bit snug. Students study or relax in the silence of the library. 146 Find A Variety Of Interests At Alleghany Each year a new crop of eighth-graders arrive in a whirlwind of confusion. Upperclassmen often encoun- ter them in the hall with a schedule card in one hand, a stack of books in the other and a bewildered look on their faces. Eighth graders experience the idea of changing classes for the first time. They are also in- troduced to a well-developed athletic program which encourages individual and team efforts. As the year progresses they get settled into the routine and ac- quire the habit of wishing they were freshmen so they wouldn ' t have to stand up in the assemblies. Freshmen begin the school year with anticipation because it is their first genuine year of high school. Usually the last four years of school are designated as " high school. " Freshmen get into the real swing of school life because they are now eligible to join more organizations and take a more active part in the func- tioning of their school. Academically, they have their first introduction to higher math and science courses. Sophomores are that rather in-between class. This year is spent mainly in bridging the gap between jun- ior high activities and senior high activities. Tenth graders are always anxious to begin their first elec- tive classes. Boys can also begin participating in Al- leghany ' s varsity athletic program. Sophomores have to begin to raise money for the all important Junior- Senior Prom. This is the year when the class really begins to function as a team. Most important in the school year of a junior is the day he receives his class ring. Juniors have to face the nerve-shattering experience of college boards. Junior Class Play and the Junior Senior Prom are just a cou- ple of the main activities in which they are the featur- ed performers. Each junior inevitably looks forward to the crowning touch of his school career, the senior year. " We finally made it! " This is the unison declaration from members of the senior class. But as the weeks progress they see how very much is before them — Senior Play, Senior Banquet, vocational choice and graduation. Finally, as graduation is concluded the seniors feel a deep sadness because the job is finished. They realize now that all the joy was in the striving for and not in the attaining of the goal. Underclassmen can all look forward to fruitful years at Alleghany. This year ' s seniors can look forward to the goals of tomorrow, realizing that they have al- ready successfully achieved their common goal at ACHS — graduation.

Anthony Salyers, class president, appeared nos- talgic at the class banquet. Turning their tassels, seniors Mary Wal- ton, John Swartz, Sue Wolfe, and Alice Carroll demonstrated that the Class of ' 67 had now become Alumni of ACHS. As the year drew to a close, Steve Byerly was one of the seniors who seized oppor- tune moments for escaping from last-minute pressures realized only by seniors. 189 Students Progressed Closer To Individuality As the youngest class at Alleghany, the eighth grade class often gave precedence to all other students. This was the case when they were asked to stand in assemblies. ACHS ' s basketball games have been noted for tense ex- citement and emotion. Students in all grades combined their talents to form a working and learning band with in- dividual effort recognized through occasional solos. John Bradley and Jeanne Walton danced dreamily at the Homecoming Dance. Jim Kelly and Mike Sams found decorating for the prom a unique experience. Epilogue Athletics, organizations, academics, and extracur- ricular activities are all important phases of school life at Alleghany. These various groups enable an individual to contribute something to his school and at the same time discover hidden or unused talents within himself. Many varied sports are offered at ACHS for both girls and boys. These varied athletic scopes allow the student to become acquainted with the importance of teamwork and at the same time they help him discover his personal abilities and limitations. Organizations can be classed in several different categories. First, there are the organizations which encourage an individual ' s growth in spirit, mind, and body. These groups inspire an individual to make contributions to home, school, and community. Members of these are assigned challenging responsibilities and through fulfilling these tasks acquire profound concepts of justice and fairness. Second, there are organizations which aid a student to formulate a picture of his prospective vocational choice. Academics are of the highest standards at Alleghany. One of the main tributes to academic excellence is the free ex- pression of individual ideas encouraged by teachers and appreciated by students. Students learn the importance of personal suggestions as well as respect for the dif- ferent ideas of their classmates. Dances are one of the major extracurricular activities, but even they are often an outgrowth of some organization or athletic group. These after-school-hours activities also play their role in the total development of the individual. Regardless of the nature of the activity at ACHS, the group as well as the individual has a unique significance. Group projects could not be completed if individuals did not work together and pool their resources. If each person held steadfastly to his own convictions and did not realize the power of the majority, all group efforts would end in failure. Students at Alleghany County High School do most indefinitely realize the principles on which our country is founded. But, how successful would the group be without the individual ' s contributions and ideas? The atmosphere at Alleghany encourages each student to discover his potentials and to develop them to the fullest extent. As " the child is father of the man, " so is high school the basis for later life. From the crowd of students at ACHS emerge separate individuals who as a result of experience acquired at ACHS, will be ready to face the future armed with knowledge, fortitude, and the desire to succeed. 191 Advertisements Kathy Conner examines the 1966 ALCOVA in preparation for the ad sales campaign. She wants to be able to show last year ' s ad as she makes her sales pitch. As the seniors leave the school, the 1967 ad sales campaign is underway. Promote Firm Relations With Local Merchants Financing is an all important aspect in the success- ful completion of a yearbook. Each year senior stu- dents are chosen for the annual ad soliciting cam- paign for the ALCOVA. They are grouped in a manner that enables them to canvass the two area cities, Cov- ington and Clifton Forge, efficiently. Every individual salesman strives to sell the greatest number of ads. Lunch time usually finds them at a local eating es- tablishment comparing their sales. Spirit renewed and hunger relieved, every salesman sets out to achieve even greater heights of success. As the day draws to a close, weary students bring their receipts to the business manager for a final tally. All weariness is forgotten when it is discovered the goal has not only been reached but exceeded. The top salesman accepts congratulations from the crowd with a smile of accomplishment. Although the hard working ad salesmen are im- portant, their work would be in vain if it were not for the friendly, generous merchants that are so abundant in this area. Thanks should be given to these mer- chants, for it is they who make the publication of the ALCOVA possible. % •» , it Best Wishes To The Class of 1967 HERCULES INCORPORATED COVINGTON, VIRGINIA PLANT 194 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 195 PINEHURST MOTEL U S. 60-220 E.
