English, requiring four years of litera-
ture and grammar, with our electives-
Spanish, Latin, and Speech, play an im-
portant part in our college preparatory
program, These supply us with a funda-
mental background in grammar as well
as an appreciation for good literature.
The mathematical courses are the
most challenging ones available at our
school. Algebra, plane and solid geome-
try, and physics are the most complex
subjects which require many hours of
diligent study. This extensive program is
necessary for the proper mental devel-
opment required for the many technical
To prepare us to accept our "Ameri-
can heritage" as citizens of our com-
muity, our nation, and our world, whether
it be as leaders or as followers, we are
introduced to and schooled in the prin-
ciples ofa democratic way of life through
such courses as Virginia History, U. S.
History, World History, and civics.
General Science, biology, and chem-
istry, which constitute our :science pro-
gram, give the student a fundamental
understanding of scientific facts and
create ci thirst for the quest of the un-
discovered and the unproved. We are
made to feel that we will playa vital part
in conquering a great "new world".

Football is perhaps the most empha-
sized sport at A. H. S., and it is the most
popular with fans. Practice begins two
weeks prior to the opening of school in
the fall. Blocking, tackling, running,
passing, and kicking are drilled into the
players to develop the necessary skills,
strengthen the body, and condition the
mind to meet the demands of a strenu-
ous schedule. Winning games is import-
ant, but the players are taught that good
sportsmanship and school spirit are more
Basketball at A. H. S. is a highly active
sport which requires outstanding team
work and the top physical condition of
each player. The team follows a rigid
schedule in both county and district com-
petition playing approximately twenty
games per season. Basketball is the only
sport in which we take part during the
Track, a renewed sport at A. H. S. is
characterized by individual competition
rather than team competition. lt gives
each athlete a chance to display his own
outstanding abilities in the many dif-
ferent events, which are held during the
spring. Track is a sport in which much
determination and a different type of
training are required in order to develop
proper muscular co-ordination.
In the lite of the student at Appalachia High are many special events
which supplement the routine schedule. The Halloween Carnival and the
annual Homecoming are added attractions in the fall, featuring much lively
interest in the selection of Kings, Queens, and Court. Assembly programs
spark the school day every Thursday afternoon. The junior and senior plays
give the aspiring Thespians an opportunity for artistic expression. Class
outings and parties herald Spring, while the seniors, as they prepare for their
final departure, are caught in a barrage of activities, the Washington trip,
the Junior-Senior Prom, Class Day, and graduation parties. School days are
fun days as these -

"l am a part of all that l have metg
Yet all experience is an arch wherethro'
Gleams that untraveled world, whose margin fades
For ever and for ever when l move."
As we ponder these immortal words of Tenny-
son, we come to the realization that Appalachia
High is truly an integral part of each of us, and,
on our graduation, we take that portion with us.
May our lives be a reflection and perpetuation of
the learning and ideals incorporated here,

ln the sultry heat of August of l954, l55 young,
eager, and inexperienced sub-freshmen entered the
eighth grade. Numb with excitement and doubt, we sur-
veyed that long stairway to the top. We worked like
beavers, but played twice as hard. Beorning with pride
and importance, we elected our first officers and spon-
sors. We were exposed to an array of extracurricular
activities, football, basketball, clubs, and social events.
There was a slight pause, called summer, and we
entered into our freshman year in l956. We were trying
very hard to mature, and began thinking more seriously
of our studies. We were still happy-go-lucky and some
of us were real pills for our teachers but the year
ended without a major disaster.
The year was l957 and our title was sophomore.
This was the year of our first major class event, which
was the trip to Hungary Mother's Park. We spent the
day swimming, boating and getting scorched, but we
will never forget.

Then we were Juniors and the time was l958. We
realized with a shock that we had only two more won-
derful years of school. Our class officers were as follows:
President, Carole Luntsford, Vice-President, Mary Faye
Leonard, Secretary, Bobby Hartleyg Treasurer, Brenda
Wolfe. The task of refining ourselves for our senior
year was a difficult one. We had the responsibility of
the Halloween Carnival, the Junior Play, and the prom
which was the biggest event of the year. Our prom
theme was "Memories". lt was a night unforgettable.
At the end of the year we realized more strongly than
ever our need for a good education ond responsibilities.
The big moment arrived in l959 when Mr. Jones
addressed us as seniors. We were proud and positively
radiating with dignity. Our class officers were as follows:
President, Lucretia Givens, Vice-President, Ted Collins,
Secretary, Joyce Snodgrass, Treasurer, Mary Faye
Leonard. This was the year for the Senior Play, the
prom, and the Washington Trip, Then came the moment
we had all waited for-graduation, With mixed emo-
tions we realized it was the beginning of a new life
and the end of the wonderful story of the Class of

Junior Class History
In the fall of l955 the doors of Appalachia
High were opened to admit a startled but eager
group of sub-freshmen. This being our first year
in a new and different environment we looked
forward to a glorious future, We were caught in
a whirl of football, basketball, clubs, and class-
work, After the second term we began to get the
"feel" of the situation and we worked with re-
newed effort. Then we had three long summer
months of rest and relaxation.
Upon our return in l956 we soon became
adapted to our high school, environment, and more
sure of ourselves as the clay slipped past, We now
realized that each subject taken was important to
our eventual graduation. We learned to study in
earnest but we also found time to enjoy a trip to
High Knob, which was the big outing of that

The year was l957 and we were "grand old
sophomores." We elected our officers and under-
took a long list of extra-curricular activities with
enthusiasm. From necessity we learned to burn
the midnight oil and were rewarded for our efforts
with passing grades. ln the spring we recall a
happy time at Hungary Mother's Park.
ln the fall of i958 we returned to find our-
selves one step closer our goal, we were
Juniors. The demands on our time, our studies and
connected activities, were two-fold. Our class
elected Charlotte Issac, President, Nancy Bouton,
Vice President, Judy Morrell, Secretary, Gary Her-
ron, Treasurer, and sponsors, Mr. Rose and Mr.
Sizemore. Our first big project was the Hollween
Carnival. We were more than pleased with the
results, and had enough capital to stage the great-
est event so far in our lives, the Prom. Then came
the Junior Play, a success, and as the day flew
by excitment rose within us as approched our

CHORUS ACTIVELY PARTICIPATES IN VOCALS
During the fifth period each day about
forty A. H. S. students gather in the "little
auditorium" to li-ft their voices in song. Sacred
songs and secular ones, serious songs and silly
onies-all are practiced with equal attention
and enthusiasm. These songs are sung public-
- ly as part of other programs, but the crowning
achievement each year is the presentation of
a cantata-this year's was a Christmas can-

able direction of these: Accompanist, Mrs. John Walker,

Then came the big game at Gate City on October 3. The clash was billed as a championship affair, but Gate City
was red hot and fired up with a big homecoming occasion. The Bulldogs came home on the short end of the score,
In their next four games, the Bulldogs ran roughshod and scored almost at will, taking East Stone 47-O, Pound
49-O, Coeburn 4l-0, and soundly thrashing their bitter rivals, the Buccaneers from Big Stone Gap, 45-O.
The final game at the season was at Norton. The Black Raiders were out for the championship. Although the
Appy squad took an early 3-O lead, they fell before the Norton champions, l3-3.
Som Clendenon was chosen all-district defensive halfback and honorable mention on all state. Eugene Kirk took
all-district offensive honors at end.

The Season in Review
The Appalachia Bulldogs captured the l958-59
championship in the regular season district eight
basketball competition with an outstanding record of
l6 wins and two losses.
This year's Bulldogs' cage edition was one of the
strongest in Appy's court history.
The home town team's two losses were to high-
rated Ervinton and Pound. The Bulldogs defeated
Ervington 64-55 early in the season, but suffered a
55-38 shellacking late in the season.
Against Pound in the regular season, the locals
wan 64-55 in the sixth game of the season, and
dropped a 69-ol decision to Pound late in the year.
Impressive 66-43 and 65-44 triumphs were re-
corded by the Bulldogs over the strong Clintwood

APPALACHIA REACHES FINALS IN
DISTRICT EIGHT TOURNAMENT
The Appalachia Bulldogs entered the i959 district tour-
nament on the spot by virtue of winning the regular season
After taking one win in the preliminary tournament at
Coeburn, they posted two triumphs in the finals tournament
at Norton, before falling in the championship clash, 4l-36 at
the hands ofa charged-up Pound Wildcats squad.
ln the preliminary tourney at Coeburn, by soundly whip-
-ping Coeburn 6l-39, Appalachia earned the right to play in
the final tourney at Norton.
ln the semi-finals, the Bulldogs advanced to the
championship game with a 40-39 thrilling victory over the
Ervinton Rebels. Appy. staved off a fourth quarter Rebel
rally to take the game.
In the opening game of the finals tournament at Nor-
ton, Coach Sam Dixon's squad staged a last ditch rally in the
final minutes of the fourth quarter to enable top-seeded Ap-
palachia to capture a 52-44 win over Rye Cove.
The championship clash at Norton was played before
one of the largest crowds ever assembled for a district eight
basketball game and marked Appalachia's first appearance
in tournament finals in the past 20 years.
The tooth-and-toe struggle lived up to all expectations
as the issue was in doubt until the final seconds of play.
There was ample encouragement for both sides to cheer
their team on as first one team and then the other moved
in the lead. The battle to death was deadlocked eight times
altogether before Pound went out front to stay, late in the

The Junior Varsity had a good season this year,
winning thirteen games and losing only five. They were

The J. V,'s started the season by winning over East
Stone, Clintwood, and Coeburn. They lost the next two
games to Pound and Ervinton, the scores being 32 to 29
both games. This seemed to ease the pressure on the
Bulldogs, and they won the next eight games in suc-
cession. Their victims were Wise, Norton, Big Stone, and
St. Paul, which ended the first period of the season.
The Junior Varsity started the second period by win-
ning over East Stone, Clintwood, Coeburn, and Pound.

"For Pete's Sake" was a light hearted comedy pre-
sented by the Junior Class on November 2l, l958. lt
partrayed the efforts of three young men who were
fighting desperately to keep the love of their fiancees.
Their efforts were opposed by Pete's Aunt Sarah who
wants him to become a college professor, studying
earnestly under the supervision of Dean Murglethorpe
and by Georgiana Clarkston, who wishes her two daugh-
ters to marry men of wealth and position. Being hinder-
ed by the snooping maid, Jasmine Jackson and by the
scheming of the two other boys their battle is won in
their favor. This was a laughing hit traveling at top
