Hurricane Agnes, and the flooding that fol- lowed, made havoc in the Home of the Colts. The gym was completely ravaged and Hod- nett Hall was the scene of floating seats and one waterlogged piano. The school was not a complete shambles as one would think, though. By the start of the school year, pieces started falling together, as new equipment replaced the flood-damaged materials. Also, many new teachers with unique ideas joined the faculty at Alleghany. Sportswise, most teams made a superior showing in the district race, especially the football team, which was Blue Ridge District Co-Champion. That was an outstanding finish for a team that was picked to finish sixth in the district in a pre-season poll. What big feet Suzie Spraggins and Steffy Nicely have! Billy Simpson, linebacker for the infamous “Crunch Bunch " , ponders about the outcome of the last football game and whether the Colts will win the next one. What ' cha looking at Cindv? 2 Yet When We Unite And Work Together Roger Simmons prepares to throw a block for “Sawmill” Bradley, who is truckin’ to paydirt. Alleghany was also honored by hosting the State 2A Wrestling Tournament. Although Alleghany failed to place high as a team, Don Shanks and David Adkins placed third and fourth respectively against a tough group of wrestlers. Social gatherings, such as dances and pep rallies, were temporarily pre-empted due to damages incurred by the flood. For the first year, there was no Christmas Formal for the Alleghany students. At the beginning, Alleghany’s 1972-1973 school year was certainly a trying one, with carpenters running in and out, plumbers repairing damaged heaters, and constant confusion reigning at that time. But as the days rolled by, things finally began to take shape, and with the cooperation of the students, the Home of the Colts returned to nor- mal. For Alleghany, the old cliche held true and still holds true — TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE IT. Dave Davis assists Mr. Yates in taking tickets at the newly erected fencing that surrounds Colt Field. 3 . . . and here’s the finished product. We Can Make The Pieces Fit 4 Together We Can Make It 5 ALWAYS BLOWING BUBBLES . . . THA rS THE DOCTOR “Bubbles” Bogan displays one of her more unique talents. She’ll do anything to have her picture taken. " .Another one of our easy tests. Miss Bogan? " 6 “Really, Doctor, try to remember the daylight rule.” R-r-ring! Slam! The Doctor is in. Although this nickname is used by only a select few students, it is well known to many more. Known to many students as one of the roughest teach- ers at Alleghany, Miss Jo Ann Bogan must also be noted for having a very diversified teaching program. Her ingenious teaching methods tend to inspire an attitude of willingness in her pupils. Beginning her teaching career at the opening of ACHS’s doors, this petite lady has proved to be indis- pensible. Besides being sponsor of the Pep Club and co- sponsor of the varsity cheerleaders, she takes on the monumental tasks of helping prepare for the Junior- Senior Prom and the Junior Class Talent Show. For several years now, under her competent coaching, ACHS has had a finalist in the Voice of Democracy contest. Miss Bogan is rather famous for skipping class and being caught by the photographer’s camera while she slyly sneaks out of the teachers’ lounge. Forever the un- witting butt of some rather ridiculous jokes, she’ll either come back smiling, or return one of her own funnies. Yes, it’s so very true that “Nobody operates like the Doctor’’, Miss Jo Ann Bogan; a truly dedicated friend, teacher, and choice dedicatee for the 1973 ALCOVA. Sixth period finds Miss Bogan outside with the “other " cheerleaders. 7 Mr. Cvizic Guides A . C. H.S. Mr. Cvizic and Mr. Smith buy concessions at one of our football games. Under the expert guidance of Mr. Dusan Cvizic, A.C.H.S. struggled through one of the most difficult years of it s existence. Destruction caused by Agnes in the summer of 1972 was a source of much anxiety and worry to Mr. Cvizic. ■After many attempts at reconstructing the gym, work was finally completed and we had one of the best gyms in the state. Mr. Cvizic ' s patience during this ordeal was unbelievable. Along with his two assistants, Mr. Walker and Mr. Holbert, Mr. Cvizic succeeded in guiding A.C.H.S. through another year. Thoroughly exhausted by another big day, Mr. Cvizic snatches a few minutes ' rest. 10 Mr. Holbert A nd Mr. Walker Are Backbone Of A lleghany Mr. Charles F. Walker, assistant principal at Alle- ghany, has many responsibilities and adminstrative duties which he must perform. His humorous ways make him a favorite with the students. Among his duties were presiding at assemblies, scheduling the majority of class and extra-curricular activities and meting out strict but fair discipline. Without the expert hand of Mr. Walker, the school would be in a state of confusion. Mr. Charles Holbert was another capable man at A.C.H.S. He gives of his time unselfishly when help is needed. He helps with the prom by keeping up with the money. .Also, he is in charge of the buses. Mr. Walker works hard on a problem concerning student scheduling. Mr. Holbert is caught trying to leave school early. School Board Provides Better Education School Board members: Delbert Hepler. Bishop Pent?, Mrs. James Ginn. Frank Flammond. III. Benjamin Letson, and Robert Burrowes. Absent when picture was taken: Oscar Humphries. Once again, the School Board waded through a difficult year in serving the younger citizens of .Alleghany County. Due to the destruction of Hurricane Agnes in the preceding summer, it was the School Board ' s responsibility to oversee the repairs at A. C.H.S. For the third year, the board adopted the exam policy for seniors. This year it became a permanent policy, which enabled the seniors to skip exams for the last semester, if their averages and attendance were good enough. Mr. Benjamin Letson. Superintendant of Schools, showed his ability in his capacity by having the school ready for the students when the first day of school arrived. He also held mans conferences with the faculty members. Mr. James Heywood served as the new Supervisor of Secondary Curriculum. He formed a Curriculum Council, which planned for many revisions in the next year ' s curricula. Mr, He uood confers uhh Mr. Phillips concerning u curriculum change. Mr. Letson takes an official phone call concerning the bus schedules. 12 Secretaries Keep A.C.H.S. Running Mrs, Sheets runs off some tests for a teacher. The most overlooked, but the most needed people at A.C.H.S. are the secretaries and the office workers. Mrs. Whitehead and Mrs. Snead took care of the activities in the office while Mrs. Sheets was the secre- tary in charge of the records in the guidance office. Many students also gave up their free period to help out in the office when help was needed. Among the duties of the secretaries are keeping up the records, answering phone calls, and operating the book store. With the help from these secretaries, A.C.H.S. would end up in utter choas. Two of the office workers look up a student’s schedule. 13 English Instructors Seek To Prepare Students As she hears a disturbance in the corridor. Miss Horn looks up to see who is disrupting her class. Mrs. Anderson explains an intricate twist in the plot of a short story. This year, to avoid repetition in the study of grammar, the English department originated a method of study so that each grade level studied a different area of grammar. In addition to reading literature, English classes were often involved in compositions, discussions, and speech- es. Eighth graders began their high school education with an introduction to basic literature styles. The freshmen were exposed to a bit of Shakespeare for the first time with their study of ROMEO AND JULIET. The sopho- mores followed with their introduction to JULIUS C.AESAR. Juniors learned of the historic writings of their ancestors, the founders of our country. Seniors finished their involvement with Shakespeare in MAC- BETH. Mrs. Barber is caught busily grading papers during her free period. 14 For College In The Areas Of Grammar, Miss Burton seems annoyed at the photog- rapher for interrupting her class. 15 Literature, Composition, A nd Speech a Miss Mann answers the door only to find a photographer. Mrs. Barron follow ' s along in her book as her students read aloud. Miss Clark listens intently to one of her students as he gives his oral book report. Mrs. Karter cheerily answers one of her pu- pil’s many questions. The Library Is A vailable To All Students At ACHS the library offered many sources of aid to the students. Without Miss Wolfe and her two assistants, many students would have found them- selves in “hot water” the day a research paper or report was due. The library had available a good stock of magazines, books, and other informative items. If students had tried hard enough, they could have found enough information to have done an excellent paper. Miss Wolfe lends a helping hand to a student who doesn ' t know how to use the card catalogue. Miss Peters takes a break from the busy routine of the day. i I Mrs, Stinnett ' s daily routine in- cludes typing for Miss Smith and the library. Absolute Values, Equations, And Mr. Rhea explains a complicated step in a Geometry problem to a mystified Robin Williams. Mr. Dunn takes time from his busy schedule to attend the Lord Bourte- tourt game. Math was a mystical confrontation to the majority of students here at A.C.H.S. Intangible objects, such as lines, planes, spheres, and tangents, remained, in the students’ minds, a mystery. Responding to this problem in comprehen- sion, the teachers offered assistance before and after school and during their free period. In most cases, their patience and understanding was rewarded at the end of the year when their charges finally passed the course, and moved on to bigger and better things. Mr. Lombardo cracks one final joke as he leaves the Men ' s Teacher ' s Lounge. Miss Conner smiles sympathetically at the despair of one of her more brilliant students. Geometric Designs Mystify Students Mrs. Dills, caught in one of the more basic tasks assigned to teachers, smi les cheerily at the pho- tographer. Miss Body gives John Stone a list of the work he missed. Mrs. Madison breaks through the formality that surrounds her classroom to smile at a “cute " comment by one of her pupils. Science Teachers Help Students Explore Mrs. Armstrong puts an assignment on the board for Periods 1 . 3. and 5. Mr. Newberry enjoys one of his more relaxed moments in the Teacher’s Lounge. Mr. Phillips assigns homework to be handed in the next day. Every student at A.C.H.S. must take at least two science courses and college prep students have to take three. The science teachers endeavor to make these courses more interesting through activities such as na- ture hikes, field trips, and guest speakers. Each year, most of the science classes spend many hours working in the lab, especially the chemistry and biology classes. Through study, experiments, and ob- servation, students discover reasons for phenomena they had never before considered. AsGary Haynes looks on, Mr. Merica grades the class’s quizzes. 20 The Mysteries Of The Universe “Did something startle you, Mr. Newberry?” Mr. Kisamore appears to be deeply involved in teach- ing biology to his classes. Mrs. Armstrong and Mrs. Humbert leave a science department conference. Mrs. Humbert illustrates a specie of spider to her class. Social Sciences Make Students While grading papers. Miss Bogan is temporarily distracted by a visitor. Even though the students at A.C.H.S. had to take history in some form for four years, these courses were made more enjoyable by seven very “cool” teachers. They made the courses more interesting for every stu- dent. The courses began in the eighth grade with Social Studies, and ended in the twelfth grade with Govern- ment. After completing the course, a student had learned not only about the past ages but the state of affairs in today’s world. Discussion played a big role in the classes. This dis- cussion gave the students a chance to give their opinions about such timely subjects as Vietnam and the election of 1972. Field trips were also major factors in social science classes as the juniors in Miss Bogan ' s U.S. His- tory classes went to the site of the controversial Gath- wright Dam. Mr. “Doc” Carter answers a question about , ' rticle IV of the Con- stitution. Students find Mrs. Earehart ' s rapid-fire lectures difficult to take down in notes. 22 More Aware Of Today’s World Mr. O’Rourke makes a point in one of his relaxed lectures. Mr. Reed is shocked to see the Alcova staff photographer pre- paring to get a shot of him. Mr. Williams takes a break to read his morning newspaper Mr. Carpenter makes plans for a guest speaker to address his Government classes. 23 Romance Languages Aid Students In Mrs. Sumner begins explaining the eonjugution of the verb “estudiar " to her Spanish students. Miss Ma casts a menacing glare at anyone who dares to interrupt one ol ' her Latin tests. Mrs. Nichols signs a permission slip so that one of her students ma do some research i n French culture in the library. 24 Better Knowing Their Own Language What a surprise to Mrs. Nichols some of those French films must be! One of her student ' s more scholarly Latin replies seems to amuse Miss May. Two of the foreign languages taught at A.C.H.C. were derived from the third. French and Spanish were Romance languages which meant that they were derived from Latin. Throughout the 1972-73 school year, Mrs. Sumner endeavored to teach the traditional customs, geography, and history of the Spanish-speaking countries, as well as the language. Spanish provided the platform to build on in Spanish II. In Spanish II a more involved know ledge of the language was attempted. Once again. Miss May preached to her scholars that “Latin is not a dead language!” Latin proved to be a great help in increasing the students’ English vocabularx and in im- proving his overall study of English grammar. No, in Miss May ' s class Eatin truly was not a “dead” language. In Erench, Mrs. Nichols also taught the customs and history of Erance. French, as did the other languages, tried to cross the language barriers of communication. 25 Home Ec. Develops Future Homemakers Mrs. Clinedinst is caught “Snitching " from the Home Ec refrigerator. Home Economics classes were very for- tunate to have the services of two very cap- able people, Mrs. Perdue and Mrs. Cline- dinst. The girls in Elome Economic classes learned valuable information in the areas of preparing numerous dinners and banquets at .Alleghany. The instructors stressed how to attain the desired effect with minimum cost by making use of all available materials. Cooking wasn ' t the only skill learned by the girls. They learned how to sew their own clothes which helped them save money. These skills learned by the girls in the Home Economics classes will always stay with them through life. No matter what their final position in life, the girls will be glad for the training they received in the Home Eco- nomics course. Mrs. Perdue shows Denna Osier the proper method of putting in a hem. Mrs. Clinedinst makes a passing comment to Deborah Simmons. 26 Students Gain Business Skills In the business department, courses were offered to all students. Many found these courses useful in typing term papers and taking notes. Students also learned bookkeeping which could be helpful in finding a job. After some collaboration on the part of Mrs. Swartz, Mrs. Jamison, and Miss O’Farrell with the Guidance Department, a new course was added to the curriculum. This was Personal Typing, a semester course, which became very popular with the students. Someone asks Mrs. Jamison a startling question. Mrs. Swartz’s practiced eye roams over her students as they type. A student asks Miss O ' Farrell a rather complicated question. 27 Band Offers Musical Experience Mr. Baber demonstrates the rhythm in one of the band ' s more difficult pieces. Under the expertise of Mr. Leonard Baber, the band provided many enjoyable moments for the student body. Wheth- er at pep rallies, halftime at football games, or concerts, the band offered the best of the music world. Head drum majorette for the 1972-1973 year was Sharon Ward with Kathy Saville assisting her. Throughout the year, they demonstrated individual musical and marching talent. Through the combined efforts of the drum majorettes, Mr. Baber, and the band as a whole, school spirit and enthu- siasm were revived at A.C.H.S. Mr. Baber appears to be surrounded by a Rood of band mem- bers. The band lakes a short break in one of their hard practice sessions. Art Inspires Creativity Mrs. Hodges looks up inquiringly when one of her students come to her for help. Mrs. Hodges shakes her finger at a mischievous student. In Mrs. Hodges’ art class, each person is allowed to be an individual. By expressing innermost thoughts, creativity is encouraged in Mrs. Hodges’ class. Paper mache, paints, and drawings surround students all year long. In addition to the fun to be had all year, students learn that art is important to the cultural aspect of society. Mrs. Hodges puts grades to items created by her students. 29 Industrial Arts Instructors Teach Students Teaching students to work with their hands as well as their minds was the main object of the Industrial Arts teachers. Mechanical Drawing classes provided basic back- ground on such things as drawings and learning how to use drafting tools. .After taking Mechanical Drawing, the students then could take wood shop or metal shop. In shop, the students learned how to make things like gun racks, lamps, welding, and how to work safely with the machines. Industrial Arts classes gave many students the chance to develop their skills in the making of many beautiful articles. Mr. Knabenshue shows Gar Shortridge the proper wav to use a saw. Taking a rest from his long da . Mr. knabenshue poses for the photographer. Mr. lligginhothani prepares proj- eets for his students. 30 To Work With Their Hands Mr. Rudd ' s students seem to have him cornered. Mr. Higginbotham works on a new piece ol ' equipment. ! Mr. Rudd helps one of his students with a problem. 31 Physical Education Takes On New Dimensions “Mr. Rice, what happened to the ball? " " Mr. Uzzell. have you been demoted to cleaning the floors? " Miss Hoover looks over her 4th period class ' s papers. Mr. Anderson appears to be helping Oliver Jordon get the big ball in the little basket. Physical education is the only class at A.C.H.S. where the students may participate physically as well as men- tally. Besides the regular schedule of running laps and doing push-ups, the students get a chance to learn how to work as a team in the team sports. Competing physically was not the only goal of the physical education teachers. Classroom instruction was very important, especially because the gym could not be used the first half of the year Gym teachers also had to make use of the field house during this time. Students were taught many facts about physical health, drugs, first-aid and driving. The classroom was developed to help the student learn vital information about all as- pects of good physical health. Miss Carter is caught in a rather unusual pose as she leads her Phys. Ed. class in e.xercises. Driver’s Ed Instills Safe Driving Habits A.C.H.S. driving instructors strove to reduce the num- ber of traffic accidents and to give the young drivers a sense of responsibility to themselves and their fellow drivers. Students not only learned how to drive but what to do in case of any emergency on the road. It was safe to assume that when any student com- pleted the driver-education course under the expert ad- vice of Mr. Jonas, Mr. Anderson, or Mr. Uzzell, he or she was ready to become a safe, knowledgeable driver. Mr. Jonas explains the intricate design of an automobile engine to a eouple of his students. Wrong ear. Mr. .Xoderson!! 34 Guidance Dept. Helps Students In Many Ways Any student here at A.C.H.S., whether eighth grader or senior, relies heavily on the advice of the three very capable guidance counselors. Any underclassman can depend on these counselors to instruct them in the right subjects to take. Seniors, also rel on the counselors to help them in finding the right college. Other duties of the counselors include updating per- manent records and giving vocational and aptitude tests. The students at A.C.H.S. are very fortunate to have these three people who work very hard with each and every student ' s future in mind. Mrs. Re nolds checks out a student ' s permanent record. 35 Mrs. Smith Rules Over Study Hall Students are allowed to talk while Mrs. Smith gets names from the librarv passes. Mrs. Smith rings for order as the study hall students get too rowdy. Under the stern hand of Mrs. Jean M. Smith, the tranquil atmosphere in study hall prevailed for another year. Al- though she had unusually large classes, Mrs. Smith was able to e nforce the no-talking rule which provided a perfect atmosphere for studying. The students were allowed to talk at certain times and to enjoy drinking pop. Keeping her cool at all times, Mrs. Smith won the admiration of all the students. There is a break in the peace and tran- quility as Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Whitehead sell tickets to the Covington football game. 36 Mr. Duff Gives Advice To Job-hunters Mr. Duff is caught trying to sneak into school late. X As Mr. Duff prepares to leave for the day, he remembers somethina he has to do. Mr. Duff proves to be an invaluable teacher to some students at A.C.H.S. Providing his students with tips such as what to wear to be comfortable on the job, how to get along with the employer and fellow employees, and what to do in case of a shoplifting incident, Mr. Duff helps them get started on the road of life. To those students, Mr. Duff is worth his weight in gold. 37 Faculty Directory Anderson, Jacqueline M., Milligan College, B.S., English, Sponsor of Junior Tri-Hi-Y, Forensics.

Alleghany’s varsity team headed by coach Bill Jonas will long be remembered. This was the first year in the school’s history that the powerful Colts defeated both Clifton Forge and Covington, The boys worked together as a team and came up with six consecutive victories, A disappointing moment was the loss to mighty Glenvar, Despite this hurt the COLTS from A,C.H,S. were named CO-CHAMPIONS in the Blue Ridge District. Mike Bradley moves quickly to gain yardage against Bath County in their first of six straight victories. 42 In Blue Ridge District Reggie Lemon makes a key tackle to stop the Cougars as Billy Simpson and Jerry Freels move in to assist. Jerome Johnson catches a touchdown pass against Glenvar. Sophomore, Brandon Nicely, attempts to hurdle a Botetourt defender. 43 Oliver Jordan escapes from the grasp of two Clifton Forge de- fenders.

They continued their unlucky streak throughout the entire season. The players’ individual efforts were excellent, but they couldn’t seem to put it all together. A bright spot in the season was a victory over Lord Botetourt 10-0. Another highlight was a tie between Clif- ton Forge with the score 6-6. John Bostic shows his ability by scoring a touchdown for the Colts. 47 Hamers Have Hapless Harvest 1st row: M. Bartley, D. Adkins, E. Montgomery, E. Williams, R. Williams. Ind row; Coach Rhea, M. Miller, T. Smith, C. Bradley, R. Kruse. 1972 ended the first decade of cross country at A.C.H.S. with a record of 55-27-1 (eleven of those losses coming in the last two seasons). Nearly half of the meets were with schools of a higher classifi- cation. The Colts had two undefeated seasons, 1967 and 1969, and placed third in the state twice, 1967 and 1968. One highlight of the 1972 season was the im- provement made individually and as a team. The three top runners were Max Miller, Tommy Smith, and Earl Montgomery. Earl Montgomery paces hard for a win. 48 Max Miller gives all the energy he has in order to win two trophies and two medals for a fine performance.

Five guys placed in the regionals which enabled them to wrestle in the state meet. One exciting highlight was hosting the state tournament. A.C.H.S. had two guys placing in this tournament. David Adkins and Don Shanks placed fourth and third respectively, with both having tremen- dous performances. Coaches Carpenter and Uzzell stare in bewilderment at the referee ' s signal. 52 J. V.

Decorations for the dance were provided by the S.S.S. Club. The theme “Football Hall of Fame” was exemplified by enlarged pictures of the individual players and a huge goalpost and football for the centerpiece. Adding a touch of beauty to the “Hall of Fame” was Miss Patricia Mae Nicely, Home- coming Queen for 1972. Trisha was crowned by Eddie Nicely after being voted on by the entire student body.

Lerner and Loewe’s “Camelot” is the story of King Arthur, who is said to have established his right to the throne by pulling the sword Excalibur from a block of stone. His wife Guenevere’s romance with the valiant knight Lancelot, along with the scheming of Arthur’s illegitimate son Mordred, brought the King’s downfall. This year’s musical brought with it new innovations which have never been used at A.C.H.S. As in previous years, Mr. T.F.D. Farrar handled the direction, only this year he shared it with three other men. Mr. Farrar was Musical Director, Mr. Samuel Yates handled staging and drama, Mr. Ed Steger was Technical Director, and Mike Noel served as the Student Director. .Also, new this year was a student orchestra which provided musical accompaniment throughout the show. .As the last performance came to a close, it was clear that “Camelot” was a hit. The weeks of work that had been put forth had finally paid off and “Camelot” was certainly a smashing success. Reluctant to become queen, Guenevere finds a new friend in a young man known as " Wart. " Merlyn inspects the King’s court as they prepare to meet their future queen. 88 And Crew THE CAST Even after being ordered to rise, Lancelot suffers at the thought of his blow felling the great King Arthur.

Senior Day conceived of and brought to life by the class of ' 73 offered a new senior privilege to the so-called “underprivileged” class of ' 73. The day began with Senior class president Don Dulaney conducting an assembly. Including only senior participants, the assembly featured recognition of the honor graduates, scholarship recipients, a satirical skit featuring Reggie Lemon as a newly arrived eighth grader, and a musical conclusion presented by the senior members of the choir. After the assembly the seniors were excused from school to go to a picnic which was held at Woodcliff Barn. This year ' s class began a tradition that, hope- fully, will continue as a reg ular senior feature. Several seniors seem to have found one of those rare moments when the can just sit and talk. Shades of Phys. t:d. class! Volleyball was ne ' er played like this. Mr. Cvizic (Mike Minger) explains some of the do ' s and don ' t ' s to the new eighth grader. 102 tion By Staging First Senior Day Reggie Lemon (the eighth grader) witnesses his first class change at A.C.H.S. — from the air!

Besides having a fine buffet-stvle supper, the seniors also enjoyed an opportunity to have an evening of fun with old friends. After the meal. Senior Class President Don Du- laney introduced Theresa Mays who sang two selec- tions for her fellow students. Then Dulaney spoke for a few more minutes, wishing the best of luck to all the seniors. So ended another fulfilling senior get-to- gether. Class president Don Dulaney closes the evening out by wishing I ' ellow students the best of luck in future sears. Mr. Walker.

June 6, 1973 started out as just a regular day in early summer and for most people it stayed that way, but for 185 young men and women it was to be a day that they would remember for the rest of their lives. Those young people were the seniors at A.C.H.S. and June 6 was graduation day. Ending twelve long years of happiness, frustration, and study, the seniors will remember this day as a climax to their high school career. From now on they are to be on their own to do with their lives as they please. From this day on, these seniors are no longer seniors - they are alumni. Becky Hoke receives the nursing scholarship, one of many scholarships given at graduation. Joe Ball proudly receives his diploma from Mr. Cvizie, ending twelve years of hard work. 107 Bush, Griffith, And Nicely Take Top Honors Top general student, Mar Ann Griffith, reminds the class that this is onis the end of the beginning. Tears ot joy and sorrow seem to collide as some of the seniors lealize they are seniors for the last time.

Most important of all organizations at Alleghany County High School is the S.C.A., Student Co-operative Association. This organization is the only one linking the students with the administration of the school. One person from each homeroom comes to the S.C.A. meet- ings and brings with them other students ' ideas or prob- lems, which are related to the school. S.C.A. members assisted Miss Wolfe again this year with the magazine campaign which turned out to be one S.C .,A. officers: Kristie Poe, Treasurer; Cindy Armentrout, Vice-Presi- dent: Nancy Childs. Secretary; Mike Bradley. President; David Davis. Historian. of the greatest campaigns. This year there was a long dispute over the interpre- tation of the S.C.A. Constitution. All of the problems were straightened out before the school year ended. S.C.A. members also worked on a point system for A.C.H.S. and one of the major projects was the initiating of Senior Day. As the 1972-73 school year came to an end, the S.C.A. was beginning to regain its authority and respect.

Since the flood ruined the auditorium this year, the National Honor Society was unable to induct its new members until January, Several meetings were held during activities period for the few old members, Mr. Heywood, the new cur- riculum advisor, was guest speaker at a special meet- ing, when he discussed the curriculum at A.C.H.S. and changes he hoped to be made in the future. Also, the club sponsored and sold programs at the state wrestling tournament. After the new members were inducted, there was time for only a few meetings. At one of these meetings, Mr. Letson spoke about several different aspects of the school year. Closing out the year, the club once again gave a scholarship to a deserving senior on the night of graduation. Officers: Cindy Armentrout, R. Weber, G. Bodell, M. Miller, ,1.

In its third year the Honor Council helped to instill integrity and honesty in the students of Alleghany Coun- ty High School. At the beginning of the year the Honor system was ex- plained to the eighth graders. A great per cent of the stu- dent body at A.C.H.S. became members of the Honor system after a membership drive in October. Betsy Deacon. Miss Wolfe, and Genie Bodell look over the agenda for an upcoming meeting. Membership in the council is not mandatory. The stu- dents that joined the council have promised to uphold the Honor Council ' s policies. This was very important during each time the Honor system was stressed. Chairman Genie Bodell, Secretary Betsy Deacon, and Faculty Adviser Miss Wolfe work together to bring the Honor Council the recognition it deserves. Vital to the success of the Honor Council, the “box " is conveniently placed in the library. 114 FBLA Prepares Members For Business World Row I: S. Pailsel, K. Bethel. Row II; D. Wilhelm, B. Lawhorn.

Interested in Christian character, the Alleghany County High School Senior Tri-Hi-Y performed many services for the school and the community. During Christmas the club spread the Christmas spirit by bringing toys and clothes which were wrapped and taken to a chosen family on Christmas Eve. In the spring the Tri-Hi-Y collected money for the Heart Fund. “Heart of Gold” was the theme for the annual Sweetheart Dance. This year the dance had a different look for it was also the first winter formal of the year. This year an additional honor was brought to the club when Teresa Lock- ard was elected Doorkeeper at the Model General Assembly.

Mr. Farrar discuss some plans for the upcoming events. One of Alleghany’s largest and most industrious clubs is the Key Club. Composed of boys with 85 or above averages, this organization performs many jobs around the school and community. During the flood in the summer of 1972 the Key Club was very active in helping people re-establish their homes and in clean-up operations. The Key Club also served the community by giving a Christmas party for the boys, twelve and under, from Boy’s Home. Key Club members manned the Salvation Army booth and won a plaque for collecting the most money. Aside from sponsoring and planning the Key Club dance, which was one of the biggest events of the year, members also helped other clubs with decorating and ushering for some of their activities. Five members of the Key Club attended the annual convention, which was held in Ocean City, Maryland. They were given opportunities to attend meetings, a banquet, and the Governor’s ball. Members of the Key Club gathered at Woodcliff to hold their annual picnic. Highlighting the end of the year, the Key Club won the Club of the Year award. 118 Eddie, Genie, Kim, and Mike enjoy the steak at the Key Club picnic.

To prepare students of Alleghany High School for a career in teaching and to give them insights into the basic teaching methods were the purposes for the Future Teachers of America. Meetings were set up for the first Tuesday of every month. Featured at these meetings were panel discus- sions and guest speakers. F.T.A. members lent a ' helping hand ' to the faculty by grading papers and occasionally teaching a class. Sharon Lemon, Kristie Poe and Janice .Adkins were the delegates sent to the State F.T.A. con- vention held in Hampton. Janice .Adkins was elected State Secretary. In the spring the club traveled to Bridgewater College to tour the facilities there. Closing out this year ' s club activities the annual picnic was held at Dawn Lambert ' s camp on May 26. This year the club acquired a new club sponsor. In the middle of the year Mrs. Shelor left and Mrs. Earheart took over as the club sponsor. Members of the F.T.A.: C. Harrison. M. McCaleb. A.

Drafting? No, this is merely the yearbook terminology. Each year it is the awesome task of a handful of juniors and seniors to put together the school yearbook, ALCOVA. From the first to the last page students must plan pictures, devise layouts, write captions, compose copy, and create headings. Besides these functions, the staff members also must organize class pictures, sell ads, sell subscriptions, choose a dedicatee, and plan an assembly. This year’s staff worked hard all year to have the book ready to be mailed early in order to insure an earlier fall delivery. Rusty Vint, staff photographer, assisted by Gratton Hepler and Don Dulaney, took many of the pictures and Genie Bodell, editor, capably advised the staff in regard to layout design and copy writing. All the staff members worked well together and tried hard to produce a more ingenious and innovative yearbook. Trisha Nicely and Jerry Freels look for the best pictures before they begin to layout the sports section. Don Dulaney and Kathy Cvizic, mem- bers of the organizations section, are having a problem identifying all of the members of one of the clubs. Mrs. Barber is always willing to help members of the staff by typing pages for them.

Gary, Reggie, John, Carol, and Dave proofread their work in the PATRIOT. ACHS ' s PATRIOT Staff increased in size this year because a Journal- ism I class was added. The Journalism 1 class learned the aspects of pub- lishing the PATRIOT by watching the Journalism 11 students in action. Mr. Yates taught the Journalism 1 students, before they took over as publishers, the techniques used on the PATRIOT. ACHS’s PATRIOT Staff is a very “close knit” group. All members help each other in meeting their deadlines. Mr. Yates works closely with the Staff in getting the PATRIOT to the press on time. Mr. Yates impresses Mr. Farrar with his typing ability as Reggie and John look on. 124 D.E. Prepares Students For Future Occupations Row 1: R. Nicelv. D. Blankenship, T. Campbell. L. Lugar. N.

Club received classroom instruction which was directly related to retailing and wholesaling. At the same time, they acquired work experience and advanced their training through the area businesses that provided part time employment. As a result of their combined efforts in D.E., the students received a school credit, a world of experience, and, of course, PAY. Highlights of the year were two trips. Some of the members went to the District 9 Eeadership Conference in Waynesboro. Almost all D.E. members attended the District 9 D.E. Rally at Bath County High School. Officers ( L to R): S.

Working on alternate Saturdays at the Alle- ghany Memorial Flospital, these girls gained valuable experience. During Christmas, club members went to Fewis Manor and sang Christmas carols to the veterans. They also decorated a Christmas tree at Alleghany Memorial Hospital. The club started a hospitality cart, which con- sisted of books, cards, and magazines, at the hospital. FNA members made two trips to visit hospitals. They went to Roanoke and Charlottesville. On these trips the members learned about the duties of nurses. Members were very active in raising money for the Cancer Drive, which was one of their main projects. Officers ( l, to R): V. Nicely. R.

One frequent activity was a group presentation of short French plays from time to time. Officers: Beth Stew ' art, Patricia McDow ' ell, Tim Curtis, and Alvin Wilson relax in the sunshine. One of the highlights of the year was an elegant tea served to the teachers this spring. Club members were responsible for baking French pastries and dainties. Club members entertained with several popular French songs and a part English-part French play. I r Mrs. Nichols makes last-minute preparations for her part of the program. 129 Spanish Club Visits “La Hacienda " 1 i All students who take or have taken Spanish are eligi- ble to become a member of ACHS ' S Spanish Club. Monthly meetings were held and the members learned more about Spanish-speaking people. Members learned about Spanish cuisine by traveling on May 14 to La Ha- cienda, a Mexican-American restaurant in Staunton, Va. .Again, they sponsored the annual Spanish Club Dance “The Day of La Fiesta " which was held in the fall. At Christmas time the Spanish Club hosted a party for the children from the Betsy Shugart School for retarded children. For an Easter project the members created Easter baskets for the needy. To aid in the study of Spanish in the classroom, the club donated money to the Spanish department. Closing the year the annual picnic was held at Eongdale Recrea- tional Center.

Students at Alleghany have an opportunity to in- dulge in a thought-provoking game by joining the Chess Club. In this game, practice, patience, and concentration are the keys to success. Under the guidance of Mr. Williams, the Chess Club membership has been growing steadily over the past few years. Members of the Chess Club shared their personal techniques with one another and played matches in order to obtain a higher rank in the club. For those students who enjoyed strong competition but liked to attack their opponents in a quiet manner, the Chess Club was the club for them. 133 Varsity Club Has A Steady Growth In Membership Row 1: K.

This deed involves long hard practice, skill, and a great deal of determination. Members of the Varsity Club are honored annually at the athletic banquet. At this banquet people who have excelled in some vital role in a sport are honored and given trophies. Near the end of the school year, the Varsity Club held its annua! picnic at Douthat. The picnic was enjoyed by every- one that attended it. Paul Riley, President, and Richard Waddell, Secretary- Treasurer, discuss some money-raising projects. Coach Williams and Coach Jonas argue about the right way to cook hamburgers. 134 Mrs. Smith isn’t as amused as Miss Bogan over Mr. Smith’s statement.

Row I; B. Reed, G. Ha nes, T. Mass. T. Hall. M. Noel. Row II: M. Bradley, R. Northwood. Tommy Hall and Teresa Mays are the All State Choir representatives. 1972-73 was an extremely busy year for the .A,.C.H.S. Choir. Held back by the work on the auditorium, the choir ' s first appearance was in the spring when they presented the first “pop " concert. Songs such as “Jesus Christ Superstar.” “Bridge Over Troubled Waters,” and “Day by Day” were sung to the delight of the student body. A select few also gave a concert for the Woman ' s Club. Keeping in the tradition of great musicals, “Camelot” was one of the best productions ever presented on A.C.H.S. ' s stage. The choir members worked extremely hard and kept long hours but it all paid off with the student body and public having tremendous reaction to the show. Teresa Mays, Bill Reed, Greg Haynes, Tommy Hall, Mike Noel, Mike Bradley and Roger Northwood traveled to Radford College to participate in the All Regional Choir concert. While there Teresa Mays and Tommy Hall were chosen by audition to be representatives to .All State Choir. Senior choir members gave their last performance during the Senior Day activities. Baccalaureate marked the final appearance of the choir.

Under the leadership of Head Majorette Pat Bennett, Kim, Beth, Sherry, Vickie, Christie, Sheila, Vickie, and Trev origi- nated their routines to the versatile sounds of the band. Pre-season training for the Majorettes was obtained at Fer- rum College. After that they practiced every day during sixth period with the band. The girls also put in additional hours of rehearsal after school. At the beginning of the year a new face was seen. Trev Greg- ory displayed poise and twirling talents. Adding to the appearance of the band, the Majorettes marched in parades at Covington, Clifton Forge, and New Castle. Keeping in the spirit of things the A.C.H.S. Majorettes en- couraged school spirit by dressing up as farmers for Farmer Day. 138 Pom Pom Girls Keep The Spirit Going “All right girls, let’s get to work!” This familiar saying of head Pom Pom Girl Michele Clifford, was heard every day before a hard practice. During the summer some of the girls went to camp at Concord College in West Virginia. From this experience they learned new routines to the Band’s music and how to make up their own routines. During every half-time the Pom Pom Girls marched with the A.C.H.S. band adding their beauty to the show. They also marched in the Christmas parades in Covington, Clif- ton Forge, and New Castle. They sponsored the unique opportunity to win the game ball from the game between Alleghany and Covington. With new uniforms and fresh new ideas, the Pom Pom Girls added their elegance to the band and the school. Michele, Alma, and Becky performed a routine during the last pep rally of the season.

One advantage of the Phot ography Club was the op- portunity for A.C.H.S. students to learn about the world of pictures. Members of the club learned all of the me- chanics of a sophisticated camera. They became ac- quainted with the work of different photographers and discussed the various techniques that were used. Photography Club officers for 1972-73 were Rusty Vint. President, .John Hamlett, Vice President, Steve Miller, Secretary, and Mike Boggs, Treasurer. One of Alleghany ' s newest clubs, the Science Club, strove to attain three goals: to promote interest in Sci- ence, to stimulate thinking among students, and to en- courage research. Exploring the vast- fields of Science was a continuous program throughout the Year. April seventh was an eventful day for young scientists as the Science Club sponsored the county wide ele- mentary Science Fair. The Science Fair proved to be a successful project of the club. Officers forming the new club were: President, Tim Curtis. Vice President, Robin Williams. Secretary. Fy- dia Smith, Treasurer, Melissa Hostetter, and Diane Tingler, Flistorian. Science C lub: R.

For the first time eighth grade students experienced the re- ality of high school life. With the help of the faculty and fellow students they got in the groove. They became active parti- cipants in many facets of high school life including cheerleading, sports, and various clubs. This year the eighth graders did not feel out of place at football pep rallies since they stood up along with everyone else. Welcoming the new class was a privilege for the other classes as the eighth graders became a part of ACHS. Although the eighth graders realized that the coming years at ACHS would not be easy, they knew that “TOGETHER THEY COULD MAKE IT.” Eighth grade class officers Mary Higgins, Robyn Ryan, Teresa Nida, and Linwood Jones discover that being an eighth grader is not always an uphill battle.

As freshmen they enjoyed many new privileges, including the choice of taking a variety of electives ranging from a foreign language to personal typing. The long-awaited privilege of being able to sit down in assemblies also finally arrived. Their new social status allowed them to join a variety of new clubs including the French and Spanish Clubs. It also permitted freshmen boys to become active participants in J.V. sports and freshmen girls to try out for J.V. cheerleading. Fourteen freshmen girls cherished the honor of being chosen to serve at the ' 73 Prom. Looking back over their ninth grade year, the freshmen realized that they were one step further towards obtaining the coveted honor of being a senior. 152 Participating InJ. V.

Challenged by biology and geometry, they discovered that being an upperclassman wasn ' t that easy. How- ever, with the hard work also came much fun and excite- ment. For the first time, they were allowed to participate in varsity sports and cheerleading. As the year prog- ressed, they became more and more aware that in only a few short months they would be looked up to as juniors. As they looked back over the year, they found that it had not been so trying, but rather rewarding, after all.

Throughout the year, the juniors displayed much enthusiasm and zest. They found that this enthusiasm was much needed in put- ting on an outstanding variety show and completing the prom. Many juniors found themselves working over- time as the day of the prom drew near. But when the night of May 1 1 finally arrived, their efforts proved to be most rewarding. The seniors found themselves in the wonderful “Land of Oz. " That long-awaited day when they would receive their class rings also arrived. On that day, elated juniors were seen everywhere proudly showing off their rings. As the year came to a close, the juniors looked back with sor- row, but ahead with joy at the thought of being seniors.

Jr. 166 Seniors Begin The Year With Great Enthusiasm When the Class of ' 73 stepped into ACHS in August, they realized that this would be their last year together. Next year each senior would be go- ing his own separate way, trying to fulfill his own dreams. As the year progressed, most seniors found themselves having a rather easy academic sched- ule. But even with an easy schedule, seniors found themselves with few moments to spare. Much of their time was spent in filling out endless forms and in sending off applications for college. In May senior privileges began and on May 11 seniors attended their last prom highlighted by the Grand March. As the year came to a close, they became more and more wrapped up in senior activities. The Class of ' 73 established a new tra- dition by having the first Senior Day in the history of the school. Graduation Day brought with it mixed emotions of happiness and sorrow upon leaving ACHS.

It’s hard to believe, but it’s a fact. After supplying so much of the material and the land to build America’s houses and cities and highways, after meeting our constantly growing demands for paper products, our forest is still 761 million acres big. How have we been able to do so much and still have so much? In the first place, trees are a renewable resource. They grow back, again and again. In fact, about the only way to remove a forest permanently is to remove the land itself. By paving it, for ex- ample, or covering it with a lake. We’ve also been able to add to America’s present forest- land by reclaiming land previously lost to other uses, including millions of acres of marginal farm- land. And to supplement natural planting, we’re planting trees ourselves: more than a million and a half acres of forest a year— and more than one tree for every tree we use. We’ve developed new methods to grow more timber faster on the same land base, too. For example, the forest products industry owns less than 9% of all the American forest. Yet this land provides the raw material for one-third of our wood and paper products. A renewable resource, re- sponsibly managed. New forests. And better ways of growing more timber faster. Almost 500 years and a new nation later, they’re all helping to keep America green. And growing. Westvaco 189 Congratulations from COVINGTON DRIVE-IN Larry J.
