HAIL, WEST VIRGIN IA ,
In the past, West Virginia has been inaligned, verified, misrepresented, wilfully
and maliciously lied about. Scurrilous articles, and ludricrous cartoons have appear-
ed in the newspapers. We have calmly looked on without attempting to explain.
Those of us who are loyal West Virginians and good Americans have resented these
unjust attacks. We have assumed that thinking people would not give credence to
the gross misrepresentations and false statements.
When a native West Virginian strays to one of the outside states, people gaze
at him with wonder mingled with half fear. They look closely at his coat to see if
they can discern the imprint of a six shooter in his hip pocket. They regard him as
an exhibit, and one of the questions they ask is: "Do you live near where all the
fighting has been going on"?
If the West Virginian has a sense of humor, and most people from this state
have, he will answer: "Yes, I have six notches on my gun".
Not only is West Virginia the most irregular in outline but the most mountain-
ous. It is sometimes referred to as "The Little Mountain State". Whether we see
the hills and Valleys or everchanging scenes on the huge mountains covered with
luxuriant forests, grandeur and simplicity is on every hand.
Many people do not know West Virginia, as the state that has the most hospitable
people in the world.

HISTORY OF THE SENIOR CLASS
' CHAPTER I - .
On September the 8th, 1919, 105 Freshmen entered High School
with the determination to pass through with flying colors. They
were given a warm reception, and through the aid of their older
and wiser class mates this new class soon became as one of the old
ones. They soon observed that it was wise as well as customary to
safeguard themselves by electing officers, so at an early date a
meeting was held in which the following officers were elected:
President ................................,,., John Caplinger
Vice P1'eS-ident ..... ........... V irgil Currence
' Secretary .................................. Elizabeth Caslow
Treasurer ..,...................,... George N. Wilson, Jr.
The home room of the Freshmen was the study hall from which
On September the Sth, 1919, 105 Freshmen entered High School
vantage point more than one great event got its impetus. The
first of these interesting events was the Freshmen Party. E
One fine winter evening the Freshmen and Faculty assembled
in the 'High School halls to enjoy a party which proved to be very
athletic in nature. The guests participated in a field meet, after
assembling themselves in four opposing groups of contestants, Much
interest and great skill were displayed by contestants in each
group. However, the meet was brought to a sudden stampede by
the sudden flashing off of every electric light, and the wild cry of
"watch the eats!" As usual Miss Charnock was at the call and
rescue of the Freshmen and just as the lights were recovered, per-
formed the champion feat of the evening by detaining one of the
offenders "by the collar," and in so doing frightening the others
away. The "eats" were saved and all the more enjoyed after
being so hard earned by all participants.
The next social event was a Wiener and marshmollow roast at
Marstillar grove. Every one enjoyed themselves in games and
after supper was over settled themselves around th fire to pass the
evening in story telling, when as usual a spring shower interfered
and the pisnic was brought to a close much sooner than ordinary.
On stunt night the Freshmen undoubtedly won the laurels of the
evening by presenting, "An Old Fashioned Church".
The Freshmen were justly proud of their athletic achievements
during this year. In the Inter-Class Tournament, the Freshmen
team was defeated by only two points by the champion Sophomore
team. Two of the regular players on the varsity basket-ball team
were Freshmen. The varsity foot ball team also had three Fresh-
A week before exams in the second semester, the social season
was brought to a close by an immense party, the whole school attend-
As for exams, suffice to say that the whole of the Freshmen
were prepared for the trying ordeal, and were found in the ranks
of the survivors so that the end of the year the Freshmen, practic-
ally as a body, found themselves, Sophomores.
The class of '23 entered its second year with an enrollment of
eighty brilliant pupils. The Class found itself grouped into three
divisions presided over by Miss May Wilt, Miss Beatrice Wilt, and
Miss Ethel Getrost. We should greatly praise the efforts of these

teachers to mold the class of '23 into the great class it has besome.
At the outset, in' order to secure union and concerted action on
the part of so many widely scattered Sophomores, we organized and
elected the following officers for the year:

The first great social event of the Sophomores was a Weiner
roast in the fall. Several of the class started out to find a suitable
place for the picnic. Half an hour' later the rest of the class start-
ed out to find them, and after being led through many Winding
paths, by means of a blazed trail, they finally found themselves at
Haddix Farm. The evening was enjoyed by all, and after supper,
they amused themselves by getting in sight of the grave-yard and
telling ghost stories. '
The next event was a toureen supper which was a great success,
But the Sophomores were interested -in more lasting happiness
than that of the social life. The Class of '23 was greatly interested

The' year was now drawing to a close and the class was getting
ready to end its second stage of the journey. The last great social
event was the Sophomore-Senior picnic held in the Canfield grove.
This was a most enjoyable event and will long be remembered.
When the days of examinations dawned the class of '23 was able
to overcome all obstacles and in due time were advanced to the rank
A Junior Year of '23 '
The class of '23 opened its Junior year with a great show of
old time spirit. It was found that our roll numbered but '72 Jun-
iors. During the two proceeding years the number had steadily
decreased. Some had left to continue their studies in other educa-
tional institutions, some entered the business world and still others
could not survive' the examinations and were in lower classes.
The class was paced under the care of Miss Wilt and Miss
Wilmoth. Thanks to their timely advise and wisdom '23 has been
spared many a misstep,
In early September' we chose to guide the destinies of the Jun-
iors, the following officers:

October 21, E. H. S. 18, Fairmont 6.
The class of '23 opened its social season by a picnic on the Had-
dix farm. This most enjoyable event was broken up by a heavy
downpour of rain. Though this dampened their spirits somewhat,
no serious consequences followed and the next morning found the
class refreshed in body and spirit.
The next event was a party for the foot-ball boys. This party
was famous for its many good Heats".
In the early winter the Juniors went for a sleigh ride and we
are sure the store manager at Gilman will not soon forget our rush
The class of '23 now fell earnestly to work mastering the prob-
lems set before it, broken only occasionally by minortsocial events.
' The class basket-ball team was entered into the inter-class
tournament and was eliminated after a-hard fight, .
Then realizing that there was much talent among them the class
of '23 decided to give- a play, in spite of the fact that Junior plays
were not customary. "Music Hath Harms", a most delightful and
original performance will not soon be forgotten by the public of
Elkins. An after-noon performance was given and afterwards
the entire cast remained at the school building until time for the
evening performance and were served a delicious supper by Miss
Wilmoth and Miss Wilt.
The Junior-Senior picnic held in Hart's grove was the last and
most enjoyable event of the season. The grounds were prettily
decorated and punch was served at all hours, drawn from a well by
the old, oaken bucket.
After being plentifully served by many good things to eat the
crowd gathered round the fire to toast marshmallows and at a
late hour dispersed for home.
Then it was that the class of '23 found itself looking forward
to their Senior year,
The Seniors returned to school very sedately, feeling their im-
portance as all Seniors should. They found that good fortune had
once more smiled upon them for they were reassigned to the rooms
of Miss Wilt and Miss Wilmoth, their faithful teachers. The class
of '23 cannot speak too highly of the help and spirit of willingness
shown by these teachers.
Early in the year the class met and chose the following officers
to reign over them in their Senior year.
PI'6S1dGI1i2 ...................................... John Caplinger
Vice-President ...,. ..,,,,.,,,,,,,,, L Ioyd Tetey
Secretary ...................................... Catherine Cody
Treasurer .......................... George N. Wilson, Jr.
The social season was opened by several hikes and picnics.
One of the best of these was the one held out near Scott's Ford.
The class will not soon forget their perilous descent down the moun-
tain side after dark. Another picnic was held on the college cam-
pus, which was enjoyed by everyone. Another was held in Dutch-
man's Hollow. Everyone had a good time on this picnic in spite
of the intense cold due to the lateness of the season.
Ever noted for their originality the Seniors decided that they

would be the first to go on a camping trip. So accordingly they
took their bags and baggage and departed for Holesberry's farm
to spend the week end. Those days will never be forgotten by any
Next came the play presented by the Senior class. After hard
work and training "Penrod" was presented by an admirable cast.
There was a recrd breaking attendance and those who saw it are
still talking about the play. The proceeds from "Penrod" amount-
ed to more than those of any play presented in the High School
Then the Seniors, in order to prevent the disease of "Clubs"
which every year' spreads through the Senior class, conceived the
idea of an entire Senior Club with a real club room. So in keeping
with the iniative of the Seniors, rooms were rented in the Scott
building for regular club rooms. These rooms were open for all
members of the club and for the purpose of holding class parties.
Then as the Seniors' pride grew within them, '23 desire to have
badges befitting their station. So letters were written far and
wide for samples of fine jewelry and after an interminable length
of time, the class was presented with Senior rings.
Then the members of '23 realized their great and good quali-
ties and determined that their likeness and form should not be
lost on the future generations. So., accordingly they Went down to
Nestor, a maker of photographs, and said to him: "Reproduce for us
our likeness on paper that we may preserve them for the coming
generations," and it was done.
Then the other classes viewing the graduates of the class of
'23 intrusted to their care the management of the Tiger and Cub.
Elizabeth Caslow was chosen editor of the Tiger and Ac Ruble as

editor of the Cub. Great has been the success of these papers.
They stand as worthy tributes to the class of '23,
Then as the days passed and '23 neared the end of their days
in high school, great was their joy, for they were soon to graduate
and there was great sorrow in the rest of the classes as the day of
Many parties and feasts were held in honor of the Seniors and
when the great day of graduation dawned the class of '23 bade
farewell to the other classes and went on their way rejoicing, the
best class that ever came out of E. H. S.

CLASS OF ' 2 3
The other day, while gloomily contemplatnig the approaching
end of our happy High Sch-ool days, I strolled from home, hoping
in the quiet peace of the open fields to find relief from the morbid
obsession which had come upon me. Lost in sad thought, I little
noticed where I wandered and soon found myself miles from home.
Overcome with the weariness of my long walk, I sat down beneath
the shady branches of a giant oak to rest. Then I fell asleep.
How long I remained in the embrace of this deep and dreamless
sleep I do not know, but suddenly a violent quivering, seemingly,
of earth and tree aroused me. Terrified and dazed I sat bolt up-
right and gazed around. My first impression was that I had slept
many hours and night had fallen, for a peculiar light, resembling
dusk yet different, was over the earth. But with it all there was
the persistent feeling, uncanny and terrifying, that something was
wrong, that a change had occured in my surroundings which my
dazed faculties could not grasp.
Puzzled and almost believing that I was still dreaming, I pon-
dered over the extraordinary situation in an attempt to regain my
normal self. Then with an almost paralyzing shock it came to me
that I was in a new world. With this revelation I observed my sur-
roundings with an intense interest, noticing for the first time that
I was in an indescribably beautiful valley. Over this there lay a
gloriously green carpet of growth resembling the tender shoots of
young grass, yet more of an emerald hue.
Through this there wound a stream of pure silver from whose
surface reflected lights of every shade and hue. From where I sat
October 28, E. H. S. 14, Grafton 0.
the floor of the valley seemed to slope up in every direction in gentle
swells that lost themselves in great. banks of tenous low-hung haze.
Overhead there was neither sun nor moon nor stars, and the light
was that of a sunless day, resembling in its tints the Aurora Borea-
lis. Trees there were none and my giant oak had given way to a
pillar of rose-tinted mist.
Further observance on my part was interrupted by the sudden
appearance of the strange being, coming seemingly from the pillar
of mist which towered above me in place of my giant oak. I have
never' seen a stranger being. His feet were winged like a Pegasus
and in his right arm he carried a Scythe of T'ime. His alabaster-
like countenance was human with the exception that it had only
one large eye in the middle of the forehead, with a look in it as one
who sees beyond the years. ,
"Earth-Being, I am the Herald of the Present just come from
the Royal Palace of the Ancient Seer. He bids you enter his pre-
Turning he vanished. I arose seemingly floating on air, and
was enveloped in a pillar of mist. The next instant Ifound myself
at the portals of a magnificent palace. They opened and I entered
into a large hall. I beheld at the far end a raised throne on which
sat a magnificently robed being. Advancing to this I knelt in awed
humiltiy and was at once told to arise.
"Earth-Being, you were predestined aeons ago by the Court of
Seers to render a great service to your world. It is the policy of
the Infinite Seer from time to time to reveal coming events of
world-wide importance to those who are wise enough to believe.
You are a member of the great Class of '23, a class whose future
achievements will shape for ages the destiny of your world."
Here he arose, with his great deep eyes burning with the pro-
phetic fires of the ages, and streched out his hands as in a silent
benediction. Then in a deep voice, vibrant with the power of eter-
nity he continued,
"Earth-Being, you, are one of the very few of your kind to be
accorded the rare privilege of entering the Mystic Valley of To-Be.
Only the extreme magnitude of the occasion has made this possible
for' you, for the Class of '23 will rock the world with their atcions
yet to come. Your people must be prepared a little in advance.
There will now be revealed to you the future careers of your
class-mates. On yonder silver pedestal in the center of the room
you will find seventy golden plates on which you will find written

A cloud of purple mist enshrouded the throne pedestal and
looking at the first of the golden plates I began to read.

After reading this last one, I turned to face the throne. But
before I could face about, a great shock seemed to rock the whole
palace. Its Walls seemed to shrivel and give Way to great banks of
rolling, Writhing mist. A blinding darkness followed, and then a
boundless void through which I seemed to be falling. I shrieked-a
mere gasp-a blinding flash of light, and then-I found myself
rubbing my eyes and blinking dazedly under my giant oak, with the
sun Well dovvn in the Western sky and a soft breeze playing at hide
and seek among the gnarled branches over my head.
Hurriedly I arose and started for home. My morbid obsession
of earlier in the day was gone.

November 1, Seniors display their banner in chapel.
On Friday afternoon October 6th the happy bunch of Seniors
set out for a merry chase. We wended our way through the fields
of corn and dug our way through the .dusty roads. At the end of
every mile there was another one to begin on, so we kept that up
until we strolled into camp which was about four miles from town.
Tired and hungry, but happy-We ate and there wasn't much
trouble in washing dishes that night,
After supper, a bright camp fire was made and we sat around
it, gave yells and sang.
Soon it was time for us to have our beauty sleep. We were
all assigned our beds, and were off to slumberland Qearly in the
Quite a lot of excitement was aroused when a rat thoughtshe
would "do well" to come and listen to our merry making. .
When we were just about to take another fifteen minutes sleep,
the alarm clock commenced ringing and everyone thinking it to be
about seven o'clock, jumped up and got ready for the next day-
to our dismay we found it to. be only two o'clock. We werenit
long for this work so, we thought we would do well, to get five
more hours sleep.
We woke up next morning, full of pep and ready to do any-
thing our dear teachers Wanted us to do.
Saturday was rather damp but that didn't spoil our fun. Hunt-
ing chestnuts and taking pictures fwhen the sun would take a notion
to shinej was the main diversion of the afternoon.
Saturday night another big camp fire was made. Everyone
November 2, Clifford Harris wore his Tragedy "Hose",
was sleepy so we hit for our beds after, so long a time, and slept
like logs only to be awakened by the fire drill in the boys dormitory
at two o'clock. The dormitory being emptied in less than no time.
Keith Cunningham made the best showing. Well the next morning
we woke up and found ourselves so stiff that we could hardly move.
Miss Wilmoth, instructress of standing down and setting up exercises,
got busy and had her' class assemble on the green, having our ex-
ercises which helped to get stiffness out, ending in a two hundred
The boys organized a football team., but the girls team took the
"tin cup" and you would be surprised to find such wonderful acro-
bats, as are in the Senior Class.
Sunday afternon was spent in taking' many pictures, but
Pocahontas appeared on the scene and saved all our livesf but one.J
Our departure from the Wonderful place was delayed by Keith's
"egg tuck," in which he endeavored to demonstrate a new way of
scrambling eggs in his pocket. This was a good trick, but proved
disastrous to the pocket, which had to be arnputated.
As this bunch of Seniors were, and are so well bred We had
to call on the "Cody bread wagon" to carry in the loaves which were
thirty in number. They were given to the Welfare Club.
At five o'clock Sunday afternoon we were homeward bound.
We took our time and arrived home at seven, after a most wonder-
ful time at camp never to be forgotten.
Monday morning, it was all We could do to get to school after
our strenuous exercises and long walk.

OUR GENERAL ASSEMBLE
On Wednesday morning, to chappel we go,
There to endure some hours of woe,
With many brave cheers, our chappel begun,
Which makes the visitors all feel young.
Miss Lawson arises and clears her throat, '
"98, please-begin the first note.
Your past singing has been getting my goat,
Now, do your best-burst the buttons off your coat!"
Then Mr. Trent gets up and speaks,
For thirty minutes-which seems like weeks.
Mr. Gibson, says, "I've some announcements to make."
Then we think, "Oh! my gosh, how much time will this take."
Then by the orchestra-a new piece they say,
But we'd know the difference any old day.
'Tis no mystery to us what song will come next
For "Hail, West Virginia," is ever our text ! !

A student on a bright spring day,
Wandered along his weary way,
His young face wore a troubled frown
And looks seeming' to be cast down.
Under his arm he wore many books
Which seemed to account for the weary looks.
He seemed to say, "O, could I find
Some means to rest my weary mind,
Where I could have my dearest wish
Like those attending schools of fish
Not a single teacher or even books,
I could live, as the great looks
On in its solemn, foolish way.
But why should I dream on this spring day?
Dreaming of things that ne'er come true,
For I must toil as the others do.

Many are the days we've spent
O'er our books at high school bent,
But say, don't you know
When there was any snow?
We all got a sled CWe Seniors.J
And down that steep, slippery hill we fled.
Then as the Seniors always do
We went and got an oyster stew.

I love the fall
When wild geese call
And in a mass
Fly south so soon,
I love the spring
For then birds sing
And fill the air
With their merry tune.
I love the winter
The air is flinter
And we can go out skating
And the flowers can bloom. By the moon. G. N. W. '23.
I love the summer
It puts the hummer

Here is the "Ideal Camp" owned by "Dick" Barry and situated
in a small valley high up in the mountains of West Virginia, near
Elkins. This Camp was built entirely by hand and is without a
doubt one of the most complete camps ever built. It commands a
most Wonderful View and right in the front door iso to speakb
is the most wonderful lake of pure water abounding in fish and
reflecting the beauty of its surroundings and at the close of day
the golden colors of the setting sun.
Notice the skins on the cabin wall, which shows that the own-
er is an excellent hunter and good sportsman. Also notice the
well, the wheel barrow and spaed, the "Old Home Town" canoe at
the margin of the lake, the chopping log with its scout axe and
likewise the wash pan and its stand at the back porch, but I leave

that to you as it would take pages and pages to point out the
advantages which abound at this particular spot.
But alas this Camp is of no use to the world as one can
easily see by the "No Trespassingu sign that to inspect it would
insure a heavy penalty. And then the owner does not use it him-
self nor will he sell it at any price-because it is only two feet
high and it covers no more than three square yards of ground.
But Mr. Barry says that everyone can enjoy the pleasure of
inspecting it and imagining that they were small enough to enjoy
the grandest spot in the whole world. That of a camper who lives
next to nature, and appreciates its beauty. He also states that as
it is so complete in every detail and is ready to live in, if a dwarf
or fairy can be found small enough to live in it, he will heartily
make, them a present of the camp, ground and all. So watch out
and if you see any elves such as Mother Goose talks about just
make them happy by sending them to this minature camp.

One more year in old E. H, S.! That one year will be the best
of all. Some will say that it will have to be too good then, to be
true. It will too, for this year has been as peppy and enjoyable
as any eighty students could make it. It has given the Misses More-
land and Bennett much worry fand probably a few gray hairs! to
keep the pep of the Junior bunch boiled down to a permitable pitch.
However, they are ready for a certain amount of fun and gc-od

The class of '25 entered upon the second year of its illustrious
course at Elkins High School with the resolve that it would be one
of the best classes that had ever entered those portals. '
That it has made a good beginning toward fulfilling that re-
solve is shown by its various achievements.
As soon as everyone had settled down and the school year was
fairly begun, a peppy class meeting was held and the following of-
ficers were elected:

CLASS OF '25
QTune: West Virginia Frat. Songb
Its ho, for a cheer to twenty-ve,
We'll give it here, we'll give it now,
Now all together, long live our class
And its twenty-five. '
For we're sturdy Sophomores all,
And no cares of life can fall
On the backs of those who call
On dear old Twenty-Five.
November 13, Sunday. 2:00 A, M. Subs Drive Into Elkins,
of which was a Halloween party at which everyone from Little Bo-
Peep to a Roman gladiator was represented.
Soon after a banquet was given by the Sophomores to the
faculty, at which everyone had a glorious time. As it has been
thought that a slight relenting on the part of the faculty towards
the Sophomores has been detected since then, the experiment may
be tried again soon.
The first snow storm having offered irresistable temptation, a
sleigh ride to Beverly and back was held-by the Sophomores. The
- good citizens of Beverly, on hearing their arrival, stired restlessly
in their beds and dreamed of '76.
The Sophomores showed their dramatic ability by two plays,
"An Economical Boomerangi' and "Pierrot and Pierrotte." Both
plays were successfully given in assembly, the first being humorous
and the second a delightful fantasy.
The following class song was composed to show the feeling
of the students towards their class.
And we'll cheer, cheer, cheer,
For the class of twenty-five,
And dear old Elkins High,
For her we'll always strive,
And though Sophomores all
We'1l oft repeat the vow,
To twenty, to twenty, to twenty-five.
So the class of twenty-five leaves its Sophomore years with the
same resolve with which it entered it.

The class of 1926 first appeared and made themselves promi-
nent on September 12, 1923. They claim to have had less trouble
in growing accustomed to High School life than probably any other
class. They stood out a mighty group, well represented in every
branch of activitiesg soon became well organized and certainly dis-
missed all fears which had threatened their predecessors.
Shortly after the opening of school, they had a meeting and of
course elected the following officers:
Louise Buzzard ...,...... ...,. President
Ada Ward ........ ..... S ecretary
Joe Skidmore ....... .................... T reasurer
Clarence Coffman .............. Student Council Rep.
Socially, they soon became active, and under the guidance of
their much loved faculty advisers and their very popular officers
carried out plans for a picnic which many attended. They had a
good time and it will not soon be forgotten. After the foot-ball
season had ended they entertained the Foot Ball Squad at the Y.
M. C. A. The squad and the many members of the faculty and the
Freshmen Class enjoyed it very much. It was the general verdict
that the team had been entertained in a most perfect manner.
The spirit displayed by the Freshmen Class without doubt, Chal-
lenges any organization in the school. They were good boosters
of the "Tiger" even if they did only contribute 5362, in the campaign
of the Annual. This small percentage is accounted for by the fact
that there are so many Freshmen and that many have brothers and
sisters who subscribed,
Quite a mob of them was present at every athletic game, or
High School event. Some were stars in athletics and in these events
which speaks Well. They are supported by good cheer leaders and
being enthusastic and of great volume make a big noise. This was
proven when they captured the cheering cup at the inter-class mix-
Under the supervision of Miss Lawson they organized the first
Freshmen orchestra, a large Freshmen Chorus and a Freshmen Girl's
The future of this Class promises to be still brighter than the
past-and there are no complaints to be made concerning the past.
The largest class in the history of the school will probably be the
largest graduating class when they make their exit.
Through the coming years they will do many things which will
gain great notoriety for them.

Although Elkins High School has been greatly handicapped in athletics because
of the lack of a gymnasium and athletic field of its own for practice and for games,
she has gradually forged to the front rank in West Virginia football, basketball and
track during the past three years. At one time Elkins ruled supreme in basketball
throughout the state due to a low level for a period of five years, when no regular
ahletic coach was provided except various teachers and alumni who volunteered
their services to try to keep the local. team from being disgraced by Belington, Par-
sons, and other neighboring towns.
Three years ago Elkins High School secured the services of Frank C, Wimer,
former High School athlete and W. V. U. player, to direct and coach all ATHLETICS,
Since that time Elkins High has won 27 football games and lost but 7. She has won
61 basketball games and lost 28. In two years of track she has won the sectional
meet each time for this part of the State, which comprised 13 counties the first
year. Her first year at the State Meet she won 6th place out of '72 schools,
competing. Last year she tied for 3rd place out of a still larger number of teams
represented and this Spring the prospects are bright for another good team.
Heretofore the boys have been compelled to buy their own uniforms in foot-
ball, but the Board of Education has fallen in line with most other schools in the
State and has purchased uniforms to equip two full teams. Hon. J. T. Davis has
built the finest athletic field in the State for the use of Davis and Elkins College
and the Elkins High School. This "Splinter" stadium will seat two thousand people
and will answer the Athletic needs of the two schools for several years to come.
The only drawback now to prevent Elkins High having the best of everything in an
athletic way is the fact that with an enrollment of 560 students. she does not have
a semblance of a gymnasium for physical education and games. For this reason their
is little or no systematic training in basketball until the pupils reach the High School
and only the more apt can secure time for practice and this with the varsity squad
at the Y. M. C. A. This will always be a handicap to the coach until the School
builds a new gym of its own where the players can be started in with the system in
The time is now at hand when Elkins must build a new High School Build-
ing and it is imperative that this building-contain a modern GYMNASIUM. When this
gym becomes available every boy and girl in the School system will'be given a
course in corrective physical education which will give them a sound body to start
out in life.

Elkins High enjoyed one of the most successful seasons in the
history of the School and probably had the most powerful offensive
team she has ever produced, having rolled up a total of 417 points
to her opponents 65. Elkins lost but three games, Weston winning
thevonly game lost on the home lot in three years by the score of
13-7. Charleston defeated the locals 7-0 in a memorable struggle
on Laidley field at Charleston. While Mannington humbled our team

touchdown, with 49 and 65 respectively, which gives him a total of

BASKET BALL TEAM
November 25, Last football game, E. H, S. 79, Shinnston 0.
Way back in 1914 Elkins High School won the first official
basketball CHAMPIONSHIP of W. Va. at the Buckhannon Tourna-
ment. The team that year won 12 games and lost 1, but defeated
every team of any note in the State, since that time Elkins has been
able to win just a few more than half her games until the 1923
season, when she ,compiled the greatest record of any team in the
State during the regular playing season when the calibre of op-
ponents, games at home and abroad, and number' of games are con-
sidered carefully. She won 17 straight and fell in her last regular
game of theseason at Richwood, 29-26. After that the team was
shot to pieces by sickness, yet it stayed until the semi-finals at the
Fairmont tourney when she was eliminated by a team that she had
scored 25 field goals to 9, on one month before.
At the State Tourney Elkins made a game fight with Capt.
Wallace, our ace coming from his sick bed to make a last stand for
the old Orange and Black. The Elkins warriors made a desperate
drive but finally succumbed to the powerful Bluefield team after
leading by 8 points until the last iive minutes. This was really the
Championship game as the Fairmont Times stated, because Bluefield
was unable to defeat the little Follansbee team after such a battle
as the Elkins team gave them.
In the three games lost out of 27 starts just three points spell-
ed defeat as the scores were 29-26, 24-21, and 21-18. Just one
team scored more field goals in the 27 games than did Elkins and
doubtedly had the best defensive team in the State. While she had
but two men, fWallace and Glennb who scored on the offensive in
each game Marshall Glenn was the greatest feeding passer in the
State. Yet he was a dangerous shot if his team mates were covered.
Elkins had the most dashing attack that she has ever produced and
her system of play was to score twice as many field goals as her
opponents, and not play a waiting game. The season record for 27
games shows that Elkins scored just 14 field goals per' game as
against 7 by her opponents, her opponents averaged 6, fouls to Elkins
John Wallace will undoubtedly go down as the best forward in
Elkins High cage history by virtue of his having scored more field
goals than any other player CCol1ege or High Schoolj in W. Va. for
two successive years. His record for 1922 was 149 while this sea-
son he reached the unparrallelled total of 170 which gives him, an
average of 7 per game.
Mr. Stansbury failed to pick Wallace on his All State team, be-
cause that team was picked at the Tourney when John was 28 pounds
under weight from sickness. While the Youthful Marshall Glenn
and Lutz were chosen on the second and third teams respectively,
Wallace and "Sleeply" Glenn receiving honorable mention.
While Elkins lost the Championship at Buckhannon her record
stands to prove that she was unquestionable one of the two or three
best teams in the State,
that was East Side in the Fairmont tourney. '
Elkins used the five man defense to great advantage and un-
The following players-were awarded letters, Captain Wallace, A.
Glenn, M, Glenn, Lutz, Collett, Wamsley, Caplinger and Parsons.

For the third straight year Elkins has supported a track team
which has won the Sectional Meet each time. But the 1922 team
was easily the best we have boasted in the history of the School.
Elkins easily won the sectional meet and one week later tied Martins-
burg for fourth place at the State Meet at Morgantown. The fact
what a high rank the locals held. Earlier in the season Elkins lost
that the best of nearly a hundred High Schools were entered, shows
at Parsons by a narrow margin, but turned the tables in a return
meet at Elkins. Elkins won third place in the Tri-State Prep.

GIRLS BASKETBALL TEAM
GIRLS ' BASKETBALL
The Elkins High School Girls' Basket Ball Team completed their
season March 27th with the D. and E. Girls. Although this team
did not win many games this yearg due to the fact that this was the
first year that most of these girls played basketball and also being
handicapped by only having a practice period once or twice a week
for an hour, it will have to be said that they played good bames and
held the opponents down to small scores. All the teams that the
girls played the High Schools had gymnasiums of their own and they
practice every day.
Their schedule this year was a very hard one but everywhere
that the team played the guarding of Mary Elizabeth Poling, Maysie
Osburn was very good. The pass work of Madeline Glenn and
Marian Wilson as center and side center made the game fast and
peppy, while the work of Margaret Glenn and Margaret Rietz as for-
ward was hard to beat when they had the ball down at their end
of the floor. Rachel Ashby, Caroline Brady, Lucritia White, Pearl
Powers all played good games when they were called upon to sub-
stitute. The co-operation of all the members was one of the strick-
ing features of the team, most of the girls above mentioned win
their basket ball letters and if they continue playing basket ball
next year Elkins High School will have a team to be proud of.

STATE TOU RN EY
While Elkins High School failed to win the much coveted honor
of being the State Basketball Champions at the Buckhannon Tourna-
ment she did bring back the next highest honor when her loyal Root-
ers Club was awarded the handsome loving cup which Dean Haught
of Wesleyan College offered as a prize to the best High School
Cheering Delegation in W. Va. This was the honor that Elkins had
been striving for since 1914 when she Won the Firt Tournament,
but every year it was Buckhannon, Weston, Fairmont, Grafton or
Clarksburg who won the Cheering Cup. The excellent cheering that
has been done by the students of E, H. S. this year' was responsible
in no little measure for the fine success of our basketball team in
its greatest year of basketball.
One of the greatest reasons for our fine cheering success is
our All-State cheer leader Harry McIntosh, familiary known as
"Dizzy." This human cricket cut such didos and at the,same time
lead his delegation with such a smoothness that Wesleyan College
awarded him af solid gold megaphone for being the best cheer lead-
er at the State Tournament. Harry is a Junior and will be with
the High School for another year which will insure it of having
good cheering to help athletics,

December 19, Miss Moreland tells the Juniors Santa Clause stor
There are three clubs in high school which are open to people who are specializ-
ing in some special subject. These are comprised of people taking Latin, French
and Spanish. T'he Latin club is known as A. V. A. Only pupils who have gone as
far as the third year of latin are admitted. This is the oldest club in high school
and has a membership of about a hundred and fifty. The French and Spanish clubs
are both active organizations of second year students. These clubs have severel
picnics and other good times during the year.
There are also some private clubs of merit in the school, among them the S.
S. S. of eight girls with Mrs. McKee as sponsorg the P. P. P. three boys with style
and dignity as is shown by their picturegg the S, A. C. another girls club with Miss

Motto: Ad Naturam Acessetur Doctrina.
The A. V, A. was organized May 18, 1914. In 1921 the mem-
bership had reached ninety-five and now exceeds one hundred and
fifty. This shows how many students in E, H. S. have brains, nerve
Sixteen new members were initiated on October 28, 1922. Three
days before this fateful date each new member received a mysterious
letter demanding three things, first, wear the inclosed purple and

FRENCH AND SPANISH CLUBS
Late in October a meeting of the French Club was called. The
following officers were elected for 1922-23.
Virginia Wilson .....................,............,... President
Evelyn Hamlin .............. ....... V ice-President
George N. Wilson, Jr. ............. Secretary
Josephine Florentino ........................,,,, Treasurer
Entertainment, refreshment and initiation committees were ap-
pointed by the President, looking forward to the time when the new
members would "run the gauntlet." Plans were made for the in-
itiation but on account of illness and cold weather they were not
'carried out at the appointed time.
However on April 5, 1923 at 6:00 the members of the Club
,gathered in room 17 to enjoy a very delicious supper before the
initiation. We had supper first as we thought that would be the
.safest way to guard the Heats." Everyone ate as quickly as possible
because being tortured by the thoughts of terrible things to come
after, they wished to get them over at once.
The results of the initiation were a few frightened people. After
.all the folks had been found the party broke up, each declaring
that he had had a very exciting and enjoyable time. As the weather
iis getting warm we hope to have many out-of-door frolics,

THE ALLEGHEN Y RADIO CLUB
This year has Seen the advent into the High School of a Very
promising and, we hope, a permanent organization-The Allegheny
Radio Club. This club has early shown promise of becoming a
factor in the affairs of the High School and h
affairs that have been very successful, among them the presentation
of a very novel chapel program and the moving picture presented
at the Grand the 9th and 10th of February at the Grand.

The meetings are held weekly and are devoted to the consider-
ation of the business affairs of the club, and then the technical
portion of the work is taken up, questions beinganswered and
problems discussed. The club we believe has been of great bene-
fit to the members and the time put in on the work of the club
has been well spent.

In the fall of 1922, just when the leaves were beginning to turn brown, four
girls journeyed out to Harte's Grove in an "ole tin lizzie." Sitting around the V
log fire frying hamburgers and onions, 'these girls decided it-would ,be a good idea ',
to select others and organize a club: It was accomplished. Lillian Poling, Anna
Ruth Keplinger, Virginia Bright and Mary Wees were the four girls. Beulah Saffel
and Mariam Wilson were asked to join. A name was decided upon and one good
rule followed. They should always knickers on the outings. The Club's next duty
was to choose a jolly sponser. Miss Minerva Lawson was given this responsibility.
At the same time Evelyn Barnes was admitted into the club.
This club in the future hopes to enjoy as good times! as it has in the past. One
for all and all for one. Y

The S. S. S. Club came together two by two's, a few years before we entered
high school. During the past four years we have been constant friends. The idea
of having a club was brewing several months before We organized. We had no
trouble in selecting our advisor, Mrs, McKee who had really been a good friend to
us since she came to Elkins.
Our ideals are high we mean to look to the higher things of life. We have all
tried to help keep and enforce the laws of the school. We mean to improve the moral
character. Besides these, we are out for a good, time. During the fall we had
roasts, hikes and picnics. The main feature of the Spring was the party at Leona
Price's the Club dressed as boys and each took their girls and every one had plenty
of eats and a good time. Many other things similiar are planned for the :early spring.
Our officers are:

Under the most able supervision of Miss Minerva D. Lawson the Music Depart-
ment, made up of the Boy's and Girl's Glee Clubs, the Freshmen Glee Club, Chorus
and Orchestra, and our school orchestra, has begun to play an important part in
High School life.
The Glee Clubs and the Orchestra have become very popular with townsfolk, as
well as students, and while the Freshman organizations have appeared very few
times, they have displayed remarkable musical ability.
On April 20, a delightful three-act musical comedy, "College-Days" was staged
by this department. This proved a great success and showed the musicaltalent which
may be found in Elkins High School.

A BUSINESS PROPOSITION
By Reba Kennedy.
Crash! The bridge that had spanned the ravine for forty years
went through with a great rending of timbers, and, oh! the ignominy
of it, the straw that broke the camels back was a ford.
Close behind followed a crimson roadster. It came to a sud-
den halt a few feet from the bridge and a girl sprang out.
She ran to the edge of the ravine and peered down into the sun
She made a pretty picture as she stood poised there. She wore
a brown suit and a snug brown turban. The sun shining through her
brown hair, as it peeped from beneath the brim of her hat, made it
appear golden, and her violet eyes were filled with terror,
She soon saw that she wouldn't be able to help whoever had been
in the car herself, so she sprang into the roadster and making a de-
tour drove rapidly away.
As that part of the country was practically deserted it was al-
most an hour before she returned with a doctor and some other
She darted down into the ravine ahead of the rest and bent
over the man who had been the sole occupant of the car.
He was delerious and was muttering to himself:
"I must get there, I must, I must."
And then again:
HI must get to Glendale. R. P, Robinson is a shark for prompt-

ness and if I don't get there on time with the money I'll be out of
the running. He said twelve and he meant twelve."
The girl looked startled and then glanced at her watch. It was
fifteen minutes until twelve and no one could reach Glendale,
which was twenty-five miles away in that time.
"Rebecca, oh Rebecca."
"Is your name Rebecca?" Queried a voice from the bed.
The girl at the window turned swiftly.
"Why are you conscious?" She asked in surprise.
It was a week later and the man lay in one of the bedrooms
of the house in which the girl lived in Glendale. It was the first
time that he had been entirely conscious and had noticed his sur-
The girl was in blue now, a blue that emphasized the shade of
her eyes. As she stood with her back to the window the sunlight
shining through her hair made it seem a cascade of gleaming gold.
"Yes" she said, answering her last question, "I've been lying
here looking at you and feeling unreasonably happy for five whole
minutes, but it seems to me that something ought to be troubling me,
Oh! I remember. I didn't get the money there on time" and he
The girl crossed over to the side of the bed and sat down.
"Tell me all about it" she commanded. "You've been mutter-
ing and muttering till I'm fairly dieing of curiosity."
"Well" he began "dad always wanted me to be a business
man. He started me out several times, but I always managed to
make a muddle of whatever I got into and to lose all the money. At
last he got disgusted and told me I would have to make my WHY
on my own hook.
I got interested in an investment which an R. P. Robinsin of
Glendale was handling. It was a perfectly safe and sound invest-
ment, rather exclusive.
We did all our business through our attorneys until it came
time to hand over the money. He said I would have to give that
to him in person,
You don't know what a shark for promptness that man is. If
you are half a minute late he won't have anything to do with you.
Well, I had managed to borrow the necessary money and had
just given myself time to get there when that dashed accident hap-
pened." He gave a groan and turned over.
A moment later he turned back.
"Well, I'Ve talked long enough about myself" he said trying
to assume a cheerful air "Now tell me about you."
She glanced out of the window and then began.
"I guess my father was just the opposite to yours" she said
smiling. "I always wanted to go into business, it always held the
greatest appeal for me. Father, however, objected strenuously. He
said that no daughter of his should ever ,enter thebusiness world.
All my friends took the same view of the matter.
I finally won out, though, and father gave me enough capital
to start on. My business was a success from the beginning.
I had learned my lesson, however. I decided that I would be
very exclusive, and let as few people know as possible that I am
a woman and not a man, for people seem to doubt a woman's
capabilities in the business world. For that reason I do most of my
business through an attorney and go by the initials and last name,
which are" she finished demurely "R, P. Robinson."

LESSONS IN ETIQUETTE.
1. When a song is announced in assembly, one should never start
to sing without giving a deep cough so as to clear the throat.
2. While a speaker' is talking one should always converse with
his neighbor so as to let the speaker know that he is by no means
monopolizing the whole conversation,
3. Always be well informed and be able to enter all topics of con-
versation. When chang'ing classes if a group is seen talking in the
middle of the hall, always join the group and give your opinion
on the subject being discussed.
4. When study hall becomes quiet and it becomes necessary to
trip a fellow student, to break the monotony, always explain to the
student when he gets up fif he is ablej that you were merely do-
ing it to amuse the other students in the study hall.
5. It is a bad form to even let the teacher have the last word
in an argument. Even if the whole hour period must be sacrificed,
February 11, Sunday.
February 12, Lincoln's Birthday.
6. In assembly when Mr, Gibson announces a period cut off, al-
ways show your approval or disapproval by clapping the hands, stamp-
ing the feet, hollowing, or whistling.
7. "Buy in your own home town" fswipe alsojh and a good
time to do this is while changing classes between buildings. Stop
in all the stores along the way and encourage the salesman by look-
ing and hooking over his goods when his back is turned.
8. One should never become sleepy or drowsy in classes.. If
one does become so, he should politely excuse himself to get a
drink and go up street to one of the popular drinking fountains. The
fresh air obtained while on the Way will relieve drowsiness,
9. If couples are not disturbed by people studying all dates
should be held in study hall, the auditorium, or back stair ways be-
tween three o'clock to six.
10. Never dodge a hurled book, or resist being knocked down,
shaken, slapped, or a kick inflicted by the faculty because great dis-
appointment is felt if they chance to miss their mark.

Penrod was not only the most delightful play ofthe season,
but is considered to have set a pace for all other amature productions
ever staged in the city or the school. As a theatrical entertainment
it hit the mark and was satisfactory in the opinions of the most
critical and fastidious spectators. It stands in' a. class by itself,
surpassing all efforts of the pastg has made the school and the class

Penrod was a genuine four act, earetickling 'comedy and was

A PLEA TO- THE S
The Seniors, through the "Tiger", wish to make a plea to the
students of our beloved High School for better, and cleaner
literature. We want to pass on to them, one high ideal, and ask
those who follow us to strive to their utmost powers to redress a
wrong and in a small measure benefit mankind. Let us demand
clean books, and abolish all cheap novels containing low morals and
From the hour' of the invention of printing, books, not kings
have ruled the world. Books have within them, power to make peo-
ple happy or to smother their peace with corruption. ln the world
of books we can select companions from among the most richly gift-
ed of the sons of God, or we can choose the corrupted, degenerated
characters as our companions.
When we remember that all actions were at one time thoughts,
then, if we are to advance and always to become better, our minds
must be of the cleanest and most wholesome. Most of our thoughts
are gathered from the conversation of our associates, or from books
we read. Since these thoughts determine our peace of mind both
in religion and intellect, and mould our character, should they not
be of the purest?
So many of our fresh and active young people are watsing
their talents, degrading their mind and debasing their morals by
UDENTS OF E. H. S.
reading the sensational novels that are so freely circulated at the
present day. If we are to stop their circulation we must stop
reading them and demand better literature. We know that as long
as there is a demand for such corrupt and injurious reading mat-
ter, it will be published by unscrupulous money-getters,
Education forms the common mind and high characters are
drawn from high thoughts. "The ideal life is in our blood and
never will be still, we feel the thing we ought to be, beating beneath
the thing we are." Let us then read only the literature that will
help us to keep constantly in mind, these ideals, instead of smother-
ing them by arousing base passions and corrupting our morals.
If we once gain the habit of reading only good, clean books,
then, when all else fails, when the world of forms and shows ap-
pears a two-edged lie, which seems., but is notg when all our earth-
clinging hopes melt into nothingness, we are still not without
Books are lighthouses built on the seas of time! Well might
Milton exclaim, "Who kills man kills a reasoning creature-God's
image, but who destroys a good book kills reason itself.
Let us then be true to our trust, bend the knee only to the
great and good, honor only the honorable, carry high the best stan-
dards, and make our country cleaner and better.

In despair, he grasped the flask, and with eyes wide
staring as the craving everpowered him, made two or three
futile efforts to raise it to his quivering lips. His failure
brought a cry of anguish which gripped my very heart and
a look of bitter disappointment spread over his features. In
an unstable moment, a few drops of the precious fluid were
spilled. He uttered a half hysterical cry of dismay and stag-
gered back. Again he attempted to raise the flask and this
time his shaking hands carried it to his mouth. The degen-
erate shown upon his eyes as the liquid stimulated him and
his lips parted in a smile. After a long swig he bit ferociously
at his rattle, murmered, "Da, Da," and fell back in his crib.

MARY'S LITTLE ENGLISH BOOK
Mary had an English book A
It's leaves were white as snow,
But other things that it contained
Poor Mary didn't know.
She carried it to school with her
Which was, of course, the rule,
But every evening the teacher said,
"I'11 see you after school."
Mary's English book was new
And proud of it she was,
But when the examinations came
Her head began to buzz.
"To pass this English" Mary said,
fAnd she was much distressedj
"I'11 have to make one-hundred, ten
And I guess you know the rest."

More STUDEBAKER cars sold in 1922 than any other
make of six cylinder cars. Why?
The mechanical exellence of the Light Six has been
proved in the hands of more than 100,000 owners
throughout the world. Why?
This is STUDEBAKER Year.
There was a man in our town who tho't it wonderous wise,
especially when 'our ad man' called to see if he would adver-
tise. He simply wouldn't interview on whatrwe had to say,
he only answered "Blooey, Boy, this is my busy day."
Of course this was his privilege, no malice here we feel.
We only claim he had a right to let us spin our speil. Then
should we not convince him or make him see our point, I reckon
then there'd still be time to cast us from his 'joint.'
When you see a man so all-fired hasty with what he has
to do, you can mark down, "There is a man who doesn't
fit the shoe."
We know of lots of business he'd probably got that day but
because he was so "busy" the trade went another way. 'Our
ad man' has influence which he uses you can bet, we think
you'1l see a moral here it's well not to forget. So, always
listen and be kindly to the callers you receive, for you
never know exactly what a guy has up his sleeve.

WHY FIDO WAGS HIS TAIL.
TO advertise! It is his mode of telling the world of that
particular mental state known as happiness.
WHEN baby laughs, when the sunshines or the rain falls,
when the flowers blooms, when dinner sends out its
inviting aroma-when any one of a thousand other
things happen which attract your attention-you are
being advertised to.
THE whole purpose of any advertisement is to recite your
curiosity, gain your interest, arouse your desire 5 to tell
you something you don't knowg to remind you of some-
thing you have forgotteng to convince you of something
over which you have been hesitatingg to help you get the
best at least cost.
IN short, the purpose of an advertisement is, to make you hap-
pier. Read the ads in this TIGER and see if that isn't so.
