The teaching staff of the Vocational Department consists of Machine Wood Working laboratory, Mr. Hugh Nestor: Related Subjects, Mr. Carl Moore: Machine Shop laboratory, Mr. I-Iarvey P. Bailey: Related Subjects, Mr. Alton Pritt. This year the Vocational Department lost Dr. Charles E. Albert to the Engineering Department of Davis-Elkins College. Mr. Moore teaches related subjects in his place. The enrollment in the Vocational Department this year is fifty-nine, which is the maximum capacity for this department. DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATICN Again Elkins I-Iigh School is fortunate in having a Distributive Education Class taught for students interested in retailing selling and salesmanship. This year a class of twenty-four is being taught by Mr. Joseph Ervin, with Miss Digman teaching the English IV course. The students in the class have three subjects: Store Problems, Retailing, and English, which begin at nine and last until twelve noon. In the afternoon the pupils work in stores and shops in Elkins. Each individual is required to work fifteen hours per week. The enrollment age for this course is sixteen years: and the applicant must be. preferably, a senior although there are a few juniors this year. In the time that elapsed from September I, I946, through January I, I947, the students worked a total of 8,836 hours, earned S3,809.4l in wages, and have a savings record of 1465. This course is practical for those who do not plan to continue their education after leaving high school, for their previous experience will recommend them for better jobs in the future. 27 ufiic L V2 , ,sg 5, ' M 1 21, A90-.,lf1fL-" ,lf i l5- A I 5 Alf .r,xf."f' M ' A ,Q4 LLQJ ' QQ ' 1. fx ,r,4,vL4,.,b Qi fC-1- ' .1 ' Z3 I XS fy W' xx X Y 1-'d',. 1' ,Vg 0-1,0 'X l l - ,fm Lew dw .xi M gpmvs L L. ,VM , ,ow 0-van! WWYETRLS GLEE CLUBS This is the first ygr since the establishment of the glee clubs that the senior girls have not played an important part. Among the last year's seniors some twelve or fifteen girls who had been members of the clubs for four years formed a nucleus that contributed strength, dignity, assurance, and excep- tionally good voice habits. The hope of a director of high school glee clubs is that the entering freshmen will continue through four years of training. At the present time the clubs are made up largely of lower classmen. This is desirable should they enroll next year and the next. The greatest hindrance to rapid progress lies in the fact that these girls have little or no training in the reading of music. Since this is true, all numbers have to be taught by rote, This necessitates a choice of songs that are fairly eaisy and bordering on the modern. One must always fight to hold the interest of young singers who have cul- tivated a taste for popular music. The love of good music develops slowly. Be this as it may, the girls in the glee club are doing creditable worlc. For the most part they are interested and sincere. Our Christmas program was well received. The girls did well in their spring assembly. Following that, they concentrated on Commencement music where the girls are able to prove to themselves what they have accomplished and to experience that sense of satisfaction that comes from something well done. THE BAND This year the Elkins High School Band, one of the largest in the school's history, appeared at all football games except when they were rained out: they made trips to Morgantown and Buckhannon to cheer the Tigers on to touchdowns. Also during this season they were honored by an invitation to the West Virginia University Homecoming game where they were pronounced by many as the best band present. At home games the refreshment stand, the home of those so-good hotdogs, was a band- sponsored affair. Also sponsored by this musical organization this year were a concert by Nelson Sabin, a violin artist in March, and the annual spring concert in April. As to the individual honors Jack Basil of cornet fame was accepted as a first comet in the "All- State Orchestranp several played in the State Clinic Band February 27 and 28, at Huntington at the time of the State Bandmasters' Clinic and annual meeting. ln May our band attended the State Band Festival at Huntington and the Festival at Salem.

Having as its purpose to aid the internal order ot the school, the Student Council strives to cooperate with the taculty and entire student body. A The council is' composed ot elected representatives ot the tour classes, eight organizations, athletic association, music department, and a faculty adviser selected by the council. I This year's Student Council sponsored the American Legion Youth Center, sold programs 'For the games, and supervised the lost-and-found department. The Elkins High School Student Council was represented at the West Virginia Stu- dent Council Government Association Convention at Jackson's Mill by William Harper, president ot the Council: and Kaye Phares, Jane Dumire and Jack Wallace, members.

M iss Mary Tyre TRI-HI-Y The Tri-Hi-Y ot Elkins High School is a Christian organization sponsored by the Y.M.C.A. and is a part of the National Hi-Y movement. As a sister organization ot the Hi-Y the Tri-Hi-Y attempts to choose members whose characteristics are clean thought, clean speech, clean living, and clean scholarship. Under the direction of Mrs. W. D. Talbott, a non-taculty adviser, the club had a very prosperous and successtul year. One ot the foremost ot its activities was the distribution among the students ot booklets containing special devotions for Lent. A contribution was made to the tund tor the rehabilitation ot the Y.M.C.A. in war-torn countries. Gra-Y's were reorganized in grade schools, and the club assisted the Hi-Y in presenting a minstrel show. Delegates from the Tri-Hi-Y attended the Monongahela District meeting at Parsons and also the State Convention. Social activities, such as dances and parties, were enjoyed monthly.

W illa Kelly HI-Y The Hi-Y Club ot Elkins High School is considered a distinct asset to the school. The boys who compose the membership ot this club strive to attain the goal ot creat- ing, maintaining, and extending throughout the school and community, high standards ot Christian character. The local chapter is attiliated with the National Hi-Y tellow- ship and with the West Virginia organization ot Hi-Y clubs. One ot the many services pertormed to the school is that ot leading the devo- tionals at the weekly assembly programs. At Christmas time a can dance was spon- sored by the club: the tood was then made into baskets tor the needy. An event acclaimed by the townspeople as well as the students was the minstrel show presented by the Hi-Y. It is hoped that this can be carried on as a yearly event. Although this club is primarily a service organization, social events are held per- iodically tor the members. This year the club is under the sponsorship ot Mr. Carl Moore.

In addi- tion to our informal initiation we held a formal one which was a candle lighting pro- gram. A meeting to celebrate the World Christmas Festival was held. All the gifts that were brought were sent to Europe. Cookies made by the girls were used in the I-Ii-Y Christmas baskets.

This past season the Wimermen won five games, lost three, and tied two. Of these they played seven "Big Ten" Conference games, winning three, losing three, and tying one: this placed Elkins in a tie for sixth place with Weston in the Conference standings. On September 6, the Orange and Black held the always strong Alumni team to a O-O tie. The next week on September IO, the scholastic lid was knocked off by our boys when they turned the tide against St. Mary's of Clarksburg by a score of 28-O. In Elkins territory on September I3, the Victory Eagles swooped down and flew back to Clarksburg with a I3-O win over the Elkins High eleven. Traveling to Buckhannon on September 27, the Wimermen were handed a 6-O defeat at the hands of the Upshur Countians. On a foreign field for the second successive week the Tigers were defeated by their traditional rivals, Morgantown, I9-O. In the third play of this game Alfred Crawford, regular end, suffered a fracture ofthe leg. At Wimer Stadium on October II, the Orange and Black climbed back into the win column by defeating the Shinnston Spartans by a score of 24-O. The next week East Fairmont, I946 "Big Ten" Champions, was held to a I4-I4 tie by an Elkins team that had at last hit its stride. The rejuvenatcd Tigers swam to a I3-O edge over Weston's Minutemen at Wimer Stadium in a steady downpour of rain on October 25. In a game scheduled late in the season, the Elkins I-Iigh team visited Clarksburg wherc they de- feated the Washington Irving I-Iilltoppers I4 to 6. The Tigers, in the last game of the I946 season, gained a decisive victory over Philippi, the "Little Ten" Champions, 28 to 6. Thus a successful season was concluded by Coach Wimer and his proteges. I I I I .jf 1 44 TIGER THINCLADS The Elkins High School speedsters participated in five meets last spring, winning one, placing second in two, third in one, and twelfth in the state meet, which was a better showing than other teams in this section of West Virginia. At the beginning of the season, Donald White, hefty weight man, was elected captain ofthe track team. The Tigers got off to a good start by winning from an Alumni team I46 to 7l. ln the next meet, which was a four-cornered one with Gauley Bridge, Parsons, and Washington lrving High Schools, Elkins tied for second place with the Hill-toppers with 7I points. Gauley Bridge finished first with lO2: Parsons was fourth, having scored 20 points. On May 4, I946, the Tigers motored to Morgantown forthe annual "Big Ten" meet. ln a closely contested battle, Washington lrving came out on top with 67 points: Elkins closely followed with 66'f2 points: Morgantown was third with 65, and East Fairmont trailed with 64'f2 points. Owing to construction work not being completed on the Washington lrving stadium, the author- ities transferred the sectional meet from Clarksburg to Wimer Field where it was held on May Il. Parkersburg walked off with the day's honors by scoring 75 lf5 points. Washington lrving was next with 5l points: third place went to the Orange and Black with 46 lfIO points. Other participants were Glenville with 43 IXIO, Morgantown scoring 29 points, and Fairmont with 25 3f5 points. Qualifying for the state meet were Donald Rice, Wallace, Wilhelm, Simmons, Weese, William Rice, Riley, and McEldowney. At Charleston Riley came in third in the half-mile, breaking the school record of 2.5 minutes with a 2 minute 2,2 seconds performance. The previous record was held by Joe Rice. The medley relay team of Simmons, Wallace, Riley, and Weese, also came in fourth. This gave Elkins a total of seven points. At the end of the I946 season letters were presented to the following: Captain Donald White, Joe Riley, Earl Grimm, Ralph Darden, David Merrill, Donald Rice, Jack Ervine, George Stalnaker, William McEldowney. Jack Wallace, Gene Simmons, James Weese, Michael Shapabarger, William Wilhelm, William Rice, John Moore, Alfred Crawford, Robert Madden, Richard Wa den. Managers: George Coffman, Robert Caplinger, Donald Carroll. 45 FIGHTING FivEs j Dick Walden, captain ot the i946-47 Tiger team, proved to be a dependable and inspirational leader. He was placed on the "All-Sectional" team. "Streamy" scored l84- points this season. Joe Riley, senior guard who always turned in a stellar defensive game, was one ot the hardest players on the squad. His agressiveness and tighting spirit were responsible tor many ot the Tigers' victories. The "Fighting Irishman" who made 65 points this year, ranks as one ot the best defensive guards ever produced by Elkins High School. Although l am just a novice at sportswriting, it is my opinion that Joe deserved to hold his guard position on all ot the tournament all-star teams. ' Jimmy Clark, senior center and a new comer to the squad, proved to be the teams' spark plug. His expert passing and dribbling and his constant fighting spirit brought the Tigers through many a hard fought contest. During the season Jimmy scored 60 points. Jack Wallace, junior guard and the standout member ot the squad, led the team in scoring by piling up a total ot 432 points. He was chosen as a member ot the "All-Big Nine," "All-Valley," "All-Sectional," "All-Regional," "All-State Tournament" teams. He is a strong candidate tor the "All-State" team. George Booth, sophomore forward, was quite a sensation as a southpaw sharpshooter. Scoring 36l points, George will be expected to do great things next year, He was selected on the "All-Region- al" team. Joe Bryant, senior torward, was another letthanded member ot the squad. This was the tirst year he played with the Tigers, but Joe always gave a very good account ot himself. He scored 4I points this year. Bob Shaw, senior, played tor the Varsity until he became twenty years old. Despite his height, "Artie" performed like the veteran he was. He made lo points during the season. Atter his birthday Artie became the squad's assistant manager. 46 9 , i .Tift iii W ,, ,lif 'lil on Rice, senior guard, was a hard fighter: his rebound work was difficult to beat. Don scored Il points for the Tigers. Gene Simmons, senior center. was the smallest member of the Varsity squad. His tenacity and agility made up for what he lacked in size. "Sock" marked up I5 points for the Orange and Black. Jack Neale, senior forward, was a valuable utility man who came through to aid in several Elkins' victories. He made 23 markers during the season. Arthur Gainer, who became a member of the team after the first semester, performed exception' ally well at guard as his height made him quite good at taking rebounds. During the season "Spud" scored I7 points. Charles Baker, veteran of World War II, received a letter for his services as manager. The I947 Tiger Basketball machine ended what appeared to be a mediocre season by capturing both the sectional and regional tournaments. Although the Orange and Black was defeated in the state tournament by South Charleston, 6I to 53, in the game that produced the most action and the best play of the opening round, Elkins was said by sportswriters to be the second best outfit in the tournament. The Black Eagles had to battle all the way to the end before they could subdue the fighting Tigers. Other honors were bestowed on the Elkins team when Jack Wallace was selected on the "All-Tournament" team, and the local delegation was awarded the trophy for the best cheering section. ' The Wimermen downed Philippi, 45 to 33, Beverly, 40 to 26, and Belington, 36 to 27, in the Sec- tional Tournament and followed these victories by swamping the highly regarded East Fairmont entry 58 to 34 in the Regional tourney. To capture this title. the Tigers had to live up to their name in order to eliminate, by the score of 58 to 34, the "knock 'em down. drag 'em out" Bearcats from Graf- ton in a hard-fought contest. Athletic teams of the future will have a tradition to live up to in order to exceed the fighting spirit displayed by the I946-47 basketball team. Elkins High may not always produce the winning team, but the Tigers are always in there fighting until the last second. No Tiger team has ever quit, and we feel sure that none ever will! BASKETBALL BATTLES Although the I946-47 basketball squad began with only five of last year's lettermen reporting to Coach Wimer, the Elkins Tigers, after a slow start, finally hit their stride late in the season and pros gressed to the State Tournament. The Orange and Black won twelve games out of twenty. On December 25, the Wimermen made their initial appearance in the South Side gymnasium when a strong Alumni aggregation defeated them, 33 to 54. Elkins High lost to a veterans St. Mary's basketball team of Clarksburg on December 28, Unable to overcome the advantage in height of the tall boys from Elkins High School, the Belington "Hi-Hawks" were overcome at the "down the river" school by a score of 54 to 28. The "B" team won handily at Belington, 35 to I5. Showing excellent improvement and near mid-season form, the Tigers upset all predictions on January 4, by sweeping last year's State Champs of Beckley out of the undefeated ranks by the score of 42 to 32 in a game, packed with thrills and tight basketball, in the local gym. Weakness in the conversion department cost Elkins High its basketball game with St. Marys' at Clarksburg on January 9, 48 to 53, Both teams scored 2I goals, but the "Stripers" made II fouls while the locals converted only 6. Our "B" team was more fortunate in that they won from the St. Marys' reserves, 38 to 23. The Philippi "Bulldogs" met defeat at the hands of the Orange and Black at Elkins on January II, by a score of 56 to 38. Trailing throughout most of the contest at Buck- hannon January I4, the "EIkinsites" came from behind in the final seconds to win over the "Buck-Ups," 36 to 34. Shinnston High staged a belated rally in its game with Elkins High at Shinnston on January I7. and emerged a 45 to 4I winner. Something of a record was set in the number of fouls called against Elkins High. During the 32 minutes of play no less than 37 fouls were called, and of this number Shinnston converted I5. Elkins had 22 free throws and scored II. The "Little Tigers" defeated the Spartan reserves, 28 to I5. Field goals were even with I5 each. The Wimermen jumped back into the win column January I8, to overcome Morgantown on the local floor, 45 to 38, in a game that was an old-fashioned thriller from start to finish. A visiting Washington Irving team, that produced in the pinches, won from the Elkins Tigers in an overtime contest which wound up 42 to 39. In the preliminary game the Elkins "B" team fought all the way to overcome the "HiIItopper" reserves in an overtime contest, 38 to 32. The Belington High team was subdued by a score of 56 to 42 by the Wimermen on January 25, on the South Elkins court. The fighting Tigers scored another victory January 28, at home by winning over the Grafton "Bearcats," 44 to 37. The Grafton "B" team was defeated by the "LittIe Tigers," 47 to 37. A rally in the final minutes gave Morgantown High a 5I to 44 win over Elkins High on January 3I. Victory High's pacesetting Big Nine entry proved nine points better than the Elkins High "Tigers" at Clarksburg February 4, winning 50 to 4I, in a hard fought contest. In a preliminary game the local "B" team was overcome 3I to 29 by the Eagles reserve squad. In a return game on Eebruary 7, the Victory Eagles again nosed out the local entry on the home floor, 38 to 4I. Elkins avenged an early 47 season reverse at the hands of Shinnston to turn back the Spartans, 65 to 38, after getting off to an early lead and holding the upper hand all the way. The Tigers pulled one out of the fire February I4, to down the Washington lrving Hilltoppers 34 to 33, in a tense game that saw Referee Jake Miller stop the contest and plead with the fans to stop their booing as an Elkins player went to the foul line to attempt a conversion. On February IS, the Weston "Minutemen" were defeated by the locals 47 to 35. ln a hard fought contest that saw the Elkins team return home with the scars of battle imprinted upon them, the "Tigers" overcame a clawing and biting "Bearcat" team from Grafton, 48 to 47. The last home game of the season found the Wimermen defeating the Buckhannon High School team, 55 to 33. Weston High's "Minutemen" were able to overcome the Orange and Black in the Blue and White cracker box gymnasium on February 27, by a score of 4l to 43. Thus the Tigers were ready to prepare for the tournament. GRIDIRON GREATS Don Rice, at the beginning of the season, was elected captain of this year's edition of the i946 Tiger turfmen. Receiving honorable mention on the Monongahela Valley All-Star team and a tackle spot on the all "Big-Ten" team, Don was the only four year letterman on the squad: his excellent leadership and deadly tackling made him an invaluable member of the team. Gene Simmons, speedy halfback and drop-kick artist, was given honorable mention on the "Big Ten" Conference team. "Sock," kicking fifteen out of fifteen tries for point after touchdowns, earned probably one of the best records in the history of state scholastic football. He is the only player to kick a field goal in the history of the school. The "Educated Toe," who completed his scholastic grid career with a record of sixty successful conversions in sixty-eight attempted drop-kicks for extra points, has done his share in reviving a lost art. ln additon to all this Simmons called the plays for the Wimermen. Joe Riley, senior guard, made the "Big Ten," "All-Valley." "All-Northern." and second "All- State" teams in l946. His spirit, fight, and accurate diagnosis of opponents' plays made him extreme- ly valuable to the team. Playing almost every minute of every game, this fighting lrishman was one of the best guards in West Virginia. Joe has aspirations to attend Notre Dame. Dick Walden was chosen all "Big Ten" end to which position he was transferred after Alfred Crawford's injury early in the season. He was considered the team's best pass receiver as well as a tower on the defense. Robert Shaw, flashy fullback, made honorable mention on the "All-Valley" team. "Artie," piling up plenty of yardage through our foes' lines, was the leading ground gainer on the Grange and Black eleven. Having served in the Navy, he was the squad's only veteran. Earl Grimm, junior half-back, did most of the passing which connected for a lot of the Tiger toucha downs. His speed and change of pace made him a very difficult man for the opposition to corner. Great things are expected of "Duck" next year. .lack Mullennex, senior, was the other guard on the first eleven. His outstanding line play made him a very valuable member of the team. Ellwood Nieman. husky tackle, was the only Elkins lineman to make a touchdown last year. He received honorable mention on the "Big Ten" team, Ellwood will be around for another year. Bill Rice, senior quarterback, had some bad luck last year: but when he got a chance, he did an excellent job in his backfield position. Ralston Teter, able center, took over Walden's post in the Morgantown game: his accurate passing from center and brilliant backing up the line proved that he handled his assignment capably. David Merrill, junior end, completed the first string. Dave's savage offensive play helped open the holes for our fleet-footed backs. Alfred Crawford, sophomore end, started out the season as a first stringer: but in the Morgantown game he fractured his leg in the third quarter and was unable to play the remainder of the season. Next year he will be able to start where he left off. Harold Jones, junior back, was general utility man on the Tiger squad last fall. "Fuzzy" proved to be very capable in filling any backfield position assigned to him. Ervin Harman, sophomore quarterback, proved to be a very able substitute for Bill Rice. He was the hardest tackler on the Tiger squad. James Weese, senior halfback, was the fastest man on the Elkins High squad although I946 was the first year he had played football. Coy Lambert, sophomore lineman, proved to be an able substitute regardless of where he was placed. Dick Talbott, junior tackle lacking in experience, proved to be a consistent and aggressive per- former in the line when called upon to replace one of the veterans. Ivan Daniels, junior guard, proved himself quite capable as a substitute in the line. Dominick Portolese, junior, played an exceptional defensive game at end. So goes the dope on another group of Elkins High lettermen of whom any school could be justly proud. 48 SENIOR FAREWELL Four years have passed: and we, the senior class, are leaving the home in which we have lived, learned, and worked. We feel that there has been a great and com- plete happiness in our lives: it is a strange feeling, as we cling desperately to the childhood from which we are fast being withdrawn, to realize that we may never re- capture this joy. We must grow up, but we hesitate to grasp the happiness of adulthood. ls there such a thing as complete Paradise? Closer to us than this complex question of the ages is our own Commencement, the beginning of our lives in the world that is ours to shape. Our feelings are a mix- ture of fear, longing, and anxiety for our fate. We look back and review these years that are gone forever: we work and play and realize that these are the things that will shape our thoughts, our actions, and our very lives. Thus we bind the past and the future into the present as we whisper, "Good-bye." ln this last speech there lie thanks to our sponsors, Mrs. Moore, Mrs. Fest, and Mr. Pritt, for their uncomplaining, all-sutfering guidance and patience. Never have they failed us when we needed them: never has their good-will toward us waned. To them a toast that says simply, thanks: for it is by them that we have been led "through the wilderness." Let us add to our thanks good wishes and the knowledge that where- ever we may go, their wisdom and influence will be felt. And now our last speech is almost done: it is time for us as the graduating class to accept our diplomas and begin to face the future. But before we go, let us reiter- ate that Elkins l-ligh will always be cherished by each of us, that her lessons have been taught, and that our memories will long linger in our hearts. And so, "Farewell." GRADUATION An age in life arose fourfold year past, And l, quite young, with aid did choose my course.
