The smallest class in school, yet that of greatest wisdom, initiative KgS and perseverance. This class, unusually active in its previous years in school, kS5 tn ' s vear reac hed the peak of attainment, fulfilled everything expected of it. The Seniors possess the honor and distinction of holding about half of the major offices of the various organizations in the college, and those Seniors who aren ' t leaders are the ablest of followers. With these two groups, leaders and followers, so well represented in the Senior Class, is there any wonder that we should be the most efficient active and helpful class in school? Seniors are foremost in every constructive activity in the college. They contribute in a large measure to the high scholastic standing of this institution, are in the front ranks in regard to social functions, are big factors in the success of the many organiza- tions in the college, and are active participants in all branches of athletics. It is with pride and yet regret that we leave this excellent institution of higher learning to go forth into the vast, practically unsounded depth of this great whirling sphere called the world. It is with reluctance that we think of leaving this wonderful school and casting about upon the great swirling sea of life, the troublesome waters in which all men must some day seek their fate. With these thoughts in mind we bid adieu to our superb and esteemed friend, Fairmont State College.

SHARPS GRACE WHITE IFiiji it: Mc(DTi „ ;n Junior College Class I a S« N the fall of nineteen hundred and twenty-four the present Junior College Class H entered the Fairmont State College bringing with it an array of talent and f |lfai | | college spirit. The Freshman year was spent in becoming accustomed to the " life that a college affords. Athletic, dramatic, literary, and social ability was discovered that in later years proved helpful in school activities. At the beginning of the nineteen hundred and twenty-five term of school there came back to the College a Sophomore Class feeling confident of success and of attaining a scholastic record. Now at the end of the third year in our college life, there is no doubt in anyone ' s mind that this class has reached a mark of distinction. The majority of athletes to participate for this school for the past three years have been members of this class. Dramatic productions, campus clubs, debating teams, and the school paper have always had their share of Juniors. The members of this class are a very popular group among the student body. We feel safe in prophesying that the students in this class will be as successful in their lasi year and throughout life, as they have been in Fairmont State College up to the present.

As the school year comes to a close, it stands on the threshold of a productive summer, with prospects of receiving fitting reward for its labors. Where workers have been needed, Sophomores have been found willing and able. On the football and basketball squads, Sophomore players were outstanding; plays and other extra-curicular work were bettered by means of Sophomore help. " A " students would be harder to find if the Sophomores were not here to add their quota to the list. This isn ' t intended to be the end of this little story either, for this Class of 1929 won ' t be in the " Ancient History " for some time to come. It is a " current event " organization, and if the reader happens to see anyone who wishes to observe something that is alive, just point toward Fairmont and whisper gently in that person ' s ear " 1929 " .

Emm ' " ; V ihc Wi " L ( (( D 17 2S ID «a«BB¥« Freshman College Class ' %§Mf : HE Freshmen, other than being ornamental, are very useful in furnishing fun §■ 1 for the upperclassmen. Most of the Freshmen are good looking, and as such ll jfjjffrl l help maintain the high plane of beauty of the school personnel. They are ,=%= " " extiemely useful, in fact, are a very necessary element in the maintainance of Freshman Court, through which many upperclassmen have their jest, their fun. Other than these two notable accomplishments, the Freshmen take a very optimistic and progressive view of school spirit and school affairs. For instance, they are the class which best supports athletic events, they participate in school plays and musical offer- ings, attend all social events when they are eligible; in general, make themselves whole- hearted students of Fairmont State College. Early in the school year the class held a very novel party, which was well attended, and at which all had a very enjoyable evening. In April a Student Body program was put on by the Freshmen which met the approval of the entire school. Late in the Spring they gave a Spring Dance, which was a brilliant event, one where everyone present had a delightful time. Watch them next year.

Always bubbling over with vigor and vitality, it means much to the Pjfjaj school. It is active in dramatics, social life, music, and all kinds of school support. Early in January this class sponsored the Junior-Senior Normal party, which was a big success. Later in the year the Class helped with the Homecoming, and still later with the Student Mix.

Q UARjE T Student Body I jfiMfl HE Student Body is just what the name implies: the entire body of students ysfflll of the school. The students are organized to promote all worthy projects, fjSK ' l to make student life more wholesome and unified, and to offer interesting entertainment at least once a month to both students and faculty. Officers are elected by popular vote to serve for one school year. They consist of president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, sergeant-at-arms and cheer leader. Other than functioning as stated above, the Student Body fosters Student Council, a sort of cabinet which discusses school and organization problems and projects, and submits its unbiased judgment for confirmation or rejection. This body is made up of the various presidents of classes and organizations, and the editors of The Columns and The Mound. It also has the power of approving any new organization which may wish to function as a part of campus life. The many other organizations of the school are subject to the constitution formu- lated by the Student Body, which has been ratified by the faculty. During the course of the school year the Student Body sponsored the following social events: Student Mix, a general get acquainted affair; Hallowe ' en Masquerade, a masked party at which the usual festivities of the season hold sway; Homecoming, a general reception and party for all graduates, at which the students are hosts and hostesses; Student Body Dance, a gay revelry following mid-semester examinations; Spring Mix, a party at which the Spring students are introduced to the regular students; and the Inaugural Ball, a dance following the election of Student Body officers for the coming year. All of these are annual affairs and are looked forward to with much anticipation and anxiety as all are gala events. STUDENT BODY OFFICERS Clarence Brock Emily Johnston Dorwin Wolfe Mary Becker President .Vice President and Social Chairman Treasurer Secretary) Alexander Vennarri Cheer Leader Herbert Henry Sergeant-at-Arms Student Council O Cj TUDENT COUNCIL is a group composed of the heads of the various or- r l ganizations on the campus. The purpose of the group is to propose plans L ' H ' h J for the most advantageous progress of the student body and its various con- stituents, namely the classes, organizations and fraternities. Plans for social functions, organization undertakings and school problems are submitted and discussed thoroughly, then finally voted upon by the Council. This is not the final action, how- ever, as the plans which the Council approves are later presented to the group, which the proposed plans concern, for them to vote on. In this way the Student Council renders the school excellent service. Members of the Student Council are: Clarence Brock, Chairman George Moosey Virginia Miller Scott Davis Richard Shurtleff Edgar Sole Herbert Henry Allen Kramer Mr. Hyde Faculty Representative Carlyle Smail Dorwin Wolfe Burlyn Rector John Callahan Eleanor Watson Scott C. Lowe Horace Michael Mildred Currey Fred Rogers Young Women ' s Christian Association |P23p] HE Young Women ' s Christian Association of the Fairmont State College is |§f™y composed of about seventy young women who are outstanding leaders in Prg j ethical and spiritual uplift. The work and enthusiasm of the association has been most gratifying this year and promises well for the future. Each of the monthly meetings has been of high quality and exceptionally well attended. The most delightful and helpful event of the Y. W. C. A. this year was the visit of Miss Winifred Wygal, a national Y. W. C. A. secretary. Among the other interesting events of the year were the annual dinner of the organization on November 15, and meetings at which papers were read concerning " The Ideal Girl " , " The Ideal Man " , and " Marriage " .

Representatives |0| J have been sent to a number of worth-while meetings of various sorts, state and national. The regular monthly meetings were helpful and interesting, but too infrequent. Plans are undeT way to have about twice as many meetings next year as were held this year. Members other than the officers are: Joseph Rosier, Walter Barnes, Paul F. Opp, E. L. Lively, M. E. McCarty, J. H. Colebank, F. S. White, H. F. Rogers, Francis Shreve, and Richard Hyde, all of the faculty.

In October " Children of the Moon " , the first public performance was presented two successive nights. Thus a study in heredity and the influence of suggestion, was unanimously declared by all, both here and in Mannington where it was presented as an American Legion benefit, to be the best amateur production yet presented in this section. Incidentally, the club program of ' ' new achievements " was followed in that this was the initial production of this school to be reviewed by newspaper critics at its dress rehearsal. On December 1 1 , the second production, " A Russian Honeymoon " , a Russian costume comedy, was admirably presented. In proof of the universality of talent in the organization, none of the cast of the first play was featured in this econd attraction. In January, The Masquers were host to Nathaniel Edward Reeid, national dramatic authority, who lectured on " The People and the Theatre. " After the reorganization with the coming of the second semester, work was begun in March on " Love ' Em and Leave ' Em " , a rollicking comedy of a department stoie life, written in American slang. This third production in the enlarged schedule wa« presented early in April. Soon after Easter " The Enemy " , the powerful anti-war preachment of Charming Polloch was begun. This fourth production occurred in May and The Masquers had the honor of being among the first little theaters of the nation in presenting " The Enemy " , the success of which was startling to every one and unprecedented in the annals of amateur work in this section of the state. The club ' s most successful year closed in June with a banquet at the Fairmont Hotel. Scott C.

It is a charter member of the West Virginia Forensic Association. This year the club was organized during the irly part of the first semester, the following officers being elected : President Sec-Treas. ... Fred Rogers Beatrice Crane Vice President Faculty Advisor ...Lester Atha 1 1. F. Boughter (Paul F. Opp The society consists of two divisions: Oratory and Debate. Odell Nutter and Cleon O ' Neil represented the College at the annual inter-collegiate oratorical contest held in Clarksburg early in March. The debating teams consisted of Beatrice Crane, Lester Atha, Robert Kimmel, (Affirmative), and Kermit Wilson, Mary Sturm, Fred Rogers, (Negative). Debates were held with the following colleges: Glenville at Fairmont, West Liberty at West Liberty, Wesleyan at Fairmont, and Davis-Elkins at Elkins. A very successful year was enjoyed, because of the diligent work done by the students participating and the excellent coaching on the part of the two instructors, Paul Opp and I. F. Boughter. 90 Sr Schubert Choral Club Director Mary B. Price Accompanist Kathryn Beltzhoover President Virginia Miller Secretary Jesse Stewart Treasurer Dove Pitzer Librarian Florence Robey Ismf] HE Schubert Choral Club was organized at the beginning of the school yea:, WfcSM 1926-27. The club was formerly called the Girls ' Glee Club, but the f gg f girls felt it would increase the interest if they formed a more definite organ- ization. The club was invited by the State President of Music Clubs to join the State and National Federation of Music Clubs and the honor was at once accepted. An elaborate program was given early in May to take the place of the annual school operetta. The spirit which the girls have shown and the splendid work which has been ac- complished are proof in themselves that the club has been a wonderful success. The club has sent its especially talented members about the community on many to lend zest to various kinds of gatherings. Morrow Hall IZBi ORROW HALL is the dormitory for the girls of Fairmont State College. It (I r Ul ' s s ' t uate d on the campus overlooking the western part of Fairmont. The 1 ' • ' • J Hall accomodates sixty-six girls, and is an ideal home. The year of 1926-27 has been the most successful in the history of Morrow Hall. This success is accredited to the ability, sound judgment and kindness of Miss Blanche Gibson, the house mother, combined with the co-operation of every girl living there. The girls have a form of student government and are represented by the " Ways and Means Committee " , whose members are elected by the girls of the Hall. At the head of this committee is Lillian Hurd, the house president, and a member of which is Myrna Henderson, the house treasurer. Th.s committee works with the house mother and the housekeeper and tries to regulate the conditions of the Hall to the best interests of all concerned. Social life at Morrow Hall is of the highest type. The girls have entertained with a number of prettily appointed teas during the year, some of the more important being the ones in honor of the Girl Reserves, Business Womens ' Association and a Christmas tea for the Hall girls. Bi-annually " Open House " , which is an informal party to which the girls may invite a friend in to dance or play cards, is held. In the Spring is given the Spring Formal, the largest social affair of the year. The Spring Formal of 1927 was quite the nicest one in years. All social affairs are in the hands of a social committee which is appointed every month by the house president. 1.1 I I fi £» f I »- 4fc % M V JU , » «. » fiqp ' s G ee C u6 I c Sfl Boys ' Glee Club was organized to promote among the boys an interest yslffy in singing. As a result some splendid voices were detected. This club joined 1 «KH with the Schubert Choral Club (girls) in a mixed chorus which furnished music for a special Sunday night service in the Fall at the Presbyterian Church. The club was also very active during commencement week furnishing music for the various commencement Male Quartet R|Bf 1 HE Male Quartet is one of the most outstanding organizations in the school Uglily Other than appearing on the school programs, the Male Quartet has been pff§j| heard by numerous organizations out in town and elsewhere: This organization also took part in the commencement exercises. The Quartet is composed of four of the best male voices in school: John Gump, first tenor; Carlyle Smail, second tenor; Richard Shurtleff, first bass; and Cleon O ' Neal, second bass. William Meredith, first bass, who appears in the picture, found it impos- sible to continue the quartet work during the second semester, and Richard Shurtleff entered into the spirit of the Quartet as though he had been a member all year. Dove Pitzer is the accompanist, and Miss Mary Price the director. Out In Town Girls ' Club RgMfl HE Out In Town Girls ' Club is an organization made up of those girls of yjfilffy the school, who do not live here in Fairmont, or do not stay in Morrow Hali, f g J but who room and board out in town, in the various homes of the city that are open to them. This club contributes a large share to the social atmosphere of the school, with its parties, and other varied activities. Aside from its social aspect, it functions in another important way — that of keeping up a good record in the matter of scholastic attainments. There is quite an interesting rivalry between the girls in Morrow Hall, and the Out In Town Girls, in regard to the standing of the two re- spective groups in the type of school work done. With the idea held before them that dormitory life is more conducive to study, the Out In Town Girls struggle valiantly to prove that they can maintain a high standing in school work, with the odds against them. So it is that the Out In Town Girls ' Club, in more than one respect, is an organization well worth having in our school.

After gaining consent to organize this club, these seven people " == again met for the purpose of electing officers, selecting a p ; n, drawing up a constitution and planning a standard initiation ceremony. The following officers were elected : President ..Harry Randall Secretary-Treasurer Ruth Turner Publicity Chairman EvALYN SATTERFIELD ' I Nellie Ritchie Initiation Committee THOMAS HENDERSON ) Dale Ridgeway Advisor Miss Blanche Price The name " Red-Headed League " was adopted and the purpose of the club was decided upon. The " Red-Headed League " will help promote all school activities and give support in any way it can in the establishment of good fellowship in Fairmont College. Later, several new membe rs were taken in, including Merle Riley, Paul Michael. Mildred Moon, Mary Sturm, Mary Ellen Staggers, Edna Morrison, and Mildred Davis. As a mascot for the League, George Moosey was selected because of his exact opposite type. The League gave several parties and a chapel program during the latter half of the school year besides holding its regular meetings. Red headed persons are note for their vim and vigor, and it was this quality in the whole group that made it the success that it was during the past year. Outing Club The Outing Club is one of the finest girls ' organizations in school. Its purpose is to develop physical efficiency, good fellowship, and love for the out-of-doors. This club is the precocious and versatile child of last year ' s Hiking Club. Of the many activities which its members have had opportunity to learn and enjoy, the most popular have been swimming, hiking, tennis, and camping trips.

It is the second largest fraternity of its kind in the United States and Canada, having at present twenty chap- ters. It is of especial and unique interest to the students of this school because the fraternity was organized here in the school year of 1924-25, ours being the Alpha Cast. Each year a number of students are selected from the membership of the Masquers, our dramatic club, for initiation into Alpha Psi Omega. Election to membership is based upon the roles played, quality of acting, or stage-craft and other sorts of dramatic effort. This year when college opened there were eleven members in Alpha Cast in school. The production of two major plays before the Christmas holidays made a num- ber of students eligible to membership and eight understudies were initiated in January. An initiation and home-coming for Alumni is held each spring which is looked forward to with warm enthusiasm because it is a social function of note. The first Grand Rehearsal of Alpha Psi Omega was held at the Palmer House. Chicago, December 28 and 29, 1926. Faculty Instructor Paul F. Opp was the representative of the Alpha Cast. j A ip A V Fp- A 1925 ®mmmsm T in ie; M( dD ij m id m m Lambda Delta Lambda Fraternity WM{yf4 AM BD A DELTA LAMBDA, honorary Chemistry fraternity, was founded l ySf in Fairmont College in 1925 by those students who were majoring or minoring j ■ff k-y in Chemistry. The purpose of the organization is to promote the study of Chemistry in Fairmont College and to further work, in Chemstry and Science other than the regular class work of the school. Mr. Rogers and Mr. Haught, who are in charge of the department of Chemistry, are honorary members, and direct the work of the fraternity. Lambda Delta Lambda has had several opportunities to be- come a national fraternity but has declined because of its comparative youih. One of these invitations will in all probability be accepted within a year or two. Prospective candidates for this fraternity must be good fellows, high in scholastic standing and have grades of " B " or better in scientific work. Several initiations, which are quite interesting, are held each year and it is a common occurrance to see pledges wearing some form of chemical equipment around the main building for about a month previous to the initiation. During the year two banquets are held, at which time all the graduate and under- graduate members assemble to have a general good time and renew friendsh ps. This year the first banquet was held during the Christmas holidays and the second during the month of May. In addition to the initiations and banquets several other interesting activ.ties are also on the yearly program of the fraternity. Lambda Deha Lambda also lends iis utmost support to every worthy school activity.

It is also the aim of this organization to cieate a better understanding between the faculty and students. Various activities of the club have been enjoyed throughout the year by the student body, faculty and members of the organization. The outstanding social func- tions of the year sponsored by the T.

He starred here in the various sports and then set out to make a bigger name for himself in much the same role at West Virginia University. There he was a member of some of the best teams the University ever turned out. Upon leaving school, Mr. Colebank went to Lumberport to coach. He met with immediate success and was enticed to Wash ngton-Irving High School during the next year or so. Then came the World War and Jasper jumped into the ranks of the army. When he got back in this locality he affiliated himself with the Grafton High School, where he remained for about five yea.s. Colebank was offered the coaching position here in 1924 and he severed rela- tions with Grafton to come to Fairmont State College and develop athletics for this institution. In the time which he has spent here he has developed some of the best teams in the various sports which the school has ever had. He has made a wonderful success not only in the number of contests won but in the high quality of sportsmanship dis- played by his boys. The entire school extends to him its congratulations and heartiest wishes for his future success. Paul B. Dawson, who to us is " Biz " , was a member of some of the early teams of Dr. Spears and Ira Rodgers at West Virginia University. When his term of com- petition was through " Biz " was appointed coach at Glenville State Normal School, where he turned out excellent teams, some of which had the honor of defeating F. S. C. This year he was appointed assistant to Mr. Colebank and has helped materially with the molding cf our teams. " Biz " receives his A. B. degree here this year and we had hoped to keep him indefinitely, but he was selected to fill the vacancy left at Fairmont High School by the departure of our good friend, Frank Ice, and thereby we lost a good fellow ard a highly capable coach. Our sincere congratulations and best wishes go with him to his new position. g f f ' ■ " .- ' ' ,. Football n3|l| N August, Coach Colebank sent invitations to the boys who were to c rry the Kp|l|JI Maroon and White honors on the gridiron, to come to football training camp. M0|ON When camp opened, for various reasons only eighteen huskies reported. Cole- bank put those who reported through two weeks of hard drill and scrimmage, and when school opened hed these men in fairly good shape to stand the knocks and falls that accompany the playing of football. When school started several of those who were not able to attend camp reported and it was not long until there were between thirty and forty candidates trudging to South Side Park for practice. After two weeks, everyone was in readiness for the opening game with California Normal. They cancelled and this seemed to take the heart out of our team. The boyr fought hard and vahently on the following Friday against a heavier and more experienced Salem team but went down to defeat. Then the Eastern Panhandlers, Potomac State, invaded our territory, got scalped and went back to the Potomac. This was our only victory of the season. We later lost to West Liberty, Glenville, Davis-Elkins, Broaddus and Marshall. The season was not a very successful one from the standpoint of games won, the showing being due partially to the loss of several of the members of last year ' s team and the injuries of this year ' s men. However, there cannot be too much credit given to the players who battled faithfully in the face of these difficulties and a strenuous schedule. CALLAHAN Individual Football Writeups Carroll Michaels, playing his third year of football, was the captain of this year ' s team. Mike played left end and there made things miserable for his opponents. irtual mountain, while on offense he was a regular battering ram. On defense he was Audrey Yoho was the big fellow who thought that he could never play football. He d:d not report for practice until this year, but from the start he made good. Audrey receives his sheep-skin this year, and yet, it is with reluctance that we see him leave, because he was an excellent guard and a gentleman. John Gump, the hard hitting, fast stepping fullback, has just completed his second year on the varsity. " Keen " was handicapped with injuries the major part of the season and for that reason he was not in his usual form. John has two more years to play, and we are expecting great things from the Mannington flash. John Callahan, former Fairmont High School star, donned the cleats the first time for the Maroon and White this year. " Irish, " playing end, had uncanny ability to pull down passes and get down under punts; a good defensive as well as offensive player. John will be sure to shine in his last year of college competition on the gridiron, 1927. m fc Biifc f Individual Football Writeups Scott Davis, another Smoky City product, played a good game at guard. Scott was a tower of strength on defense and a terror on offense. Scotty has two more years of varsity competition, so the Maroon and White will be well taken care of at one of the guard positions during that time. Clyde Hickman has coal dust in his eyes, but this does not handicap him in playing a great game of football. Clyde has played three years for us, and in addition to being a great passer he is a good kicker and ball carrier. Clyde is our captain for next year and if he is as good a leader as he is a player, the swan song will be sung on many campuses outside the realm of Fairmont. Paul Hefner the fleet-footed halfback, has represented the school in football for the past three years. " Rink, " while in Grafton High School, was ranked as an all state man and this honor was rightly given to him. With a continual line of chatter and good football ability, Paul covered himself with glory on the gridiron. He has one more year to wear the Maroon jersey and we are sure it will be carried by the popular lad to sterling heights. Dorwin Wolfe, better known to the boys as the " Dean, " held down the place of tackle. In football there was none better to be found ! He also hails from the smoky city of Grafton. He made his last tackle for good old Fairmont College at Marshall Field in November and the gap made by his departure will be a difficult one to fill. When the " Dean " hit that line something was bound to break loose. " Let ' s go Fairmont, " was his battle cry. 110 Individual Football Writeups Clarence Brock combined football and brains. In addition to being a good guard he was our honorable Student Body president. Clarence was one of the hardest work- ers on the squad, and, with that never-say-die-spirit he kept up the team ' s morale. Brock was forced from active service with a broken leg which he received during the first quarter of the Victory High School game. He continued to play the remainder of the game on one leg, showing the true courage that he has. This is Clarence ' s fourth year for the Maroon and White, and his loss will be keenly felt by the students and his fellow- players. John Herbert Henry. It is hard to think a football player carrying a name like that. Sounds like he was an English lord. Herbert is the most vicious tackier on the team. He combines good football brains with strength and agility. " Hug " is a good passer and drop kicker as well as being a good man at interference. This is Herbert ' s third year of varsity football and if Grafton has any more athletes as good, we would like the Smoky City to send them down. Charles McDade alternated at quarterback and end regular he did his share towards boosting the F. S. C. colors. left in which to show what the Irish can do on the gridiron something that we will al be proud of. Aubrey Taylor, the largest student in school, has made life miserable for the op- posing teams. He was a terror on defense and a giant on the offense. This was " Tubby ' s " second year at tackle and with two more years before him he is sure to make a good deal of worry for the opposing teams. Ill and while he was not a " Mickie " has two years and we know it will be SNODCRASS Individual Football Writeups Dale Snodgrass, former Mannington High School athlete, has donned the cleats for F. S. C. the last time. Butter has worn the colors of the school for the past four years at quarterback and we are extremely sorry to part with him. Our only consolation is that he has the making of a good football coach and that someone else wil l benefit by our loss. Purcell Bock, Shinnston High School lad, played a good game at quarterback. He directed the team in fine style and we hope to see him barking signals for F. S. C. next year. Odell Nutter, playing end for the first time, covered himself with glory. Nutter was injured about the middle of the season and was forced to quit active participation. With three more years before him, Odell is sure to make a mighty good football player. Fred Minter, former Victory High School star, did not report for football until mid-season, but when he came out there was keen rivalry shown for a tackle position. This was Fred ' s first year and by the time he is graduated he will have made a name for himself in football and in his scholastic work. Lawrence Losh contradicts all theories that football players are strong, but dumb. Lawrence is one of the best students in school and one of the best liked boys. He hails from Grafton and has two years more to show his mettle either at guard or center for Fairmont State College. (No Picture). Individual Football IVriteups Lawrence Hall was the smallest man on the squad. " Banty " was the regular center until injuries received in the Salem game kept him out for the balance of the season. Lawrence is another Grafton High School lad that has two years of active football before him. Hawkins alternated at end and halfback, and for the second year he took the drubbing and lashing that the reserve man gets. " Hayseed, " former East Side High athlete, has labored diligently for the past two seasons to land a position, and it seems that he ' s going to be the 1927 flash at F. S. C. Patsy Tork, small in stature, but mighty in battle, hails from Fairmont High School. Patsy played a center position and combined the two essentials of a good football center; that of being an accurate passer and knowing the signals, in addition to being able to diagnose plays of the opponents before they got started. Patsy has three more years in which to show his fine mettle. Raymond Scott of Smithfield, better known as " Ami, " played guard and was a player of no little ability. He graduates this year and we are mighty sorry that he doesn ' t have another year or more in which to help the Fighting Teachers. William Samples, 1926 manager, deserves a lot of credit for the work which he did this year in looking after the team. Bill is well liked and was a very competent manager. Basket Ball Squad Back row, left to right — Colebank, coach; Clyde Hickman, forward; Bard Hickman, center; McDade, forward; Michaels, guard, Davis, manager.

" J 1 II!I IlC MOKlKJil Basket Ball |si|lffHE basketball season of the Fairmont College can be considered very suc- I MpJ cessful even though we did lose quite a few of our major battles. Due to [ p y l the loss of several valuable men from last year ' s squad, namely Mason, Shaw, = Hamilton, and Ross, our team was considerably weakened, but the boys who remained came through and we had a team that looked like veterans. They fought hard, were game to the last minute and played clean, thoughtful ball. All of the games were fast and furiously contested, most of them being of a close interesting nature; the kind where anyone could win in the last couple of minutes. The team started the regular season by defeating West Liberty, but immediately struck a snag in Bethany at Bethany, where we came out on the short end of a 37-36 score. Then came the battle with Potomac State in which we emerged the victor, 29-19. At Elkins the boys lost in the last few minutes when the Davis and Elkins team seemed not to be able to miss the basket. Our fellows had been leading up until this drastic burst by the Scarlet Hurricane, but this lead soon went down like a quickly deflated balloon. Fairmont defeated Marshall 37-27 in the best game our fellows played this year, in the next encounter. Salem next defeated us in a bitterly fought game at Salem by the score of 34-30. Then we trounced Glenville here, 33-21. On a southern trip our team fell afoul of the Morris Harvey clan 26-25, but again administered defeat to the Marshall five, this time to the tune of 37-29. Then came the hectic struggle with Wesleyan, with our team leading until the last thirty seconds of play when Wesleyan dropped two double-deckers through the hoop leaving us on the short end of a 27-26 score. We whipped Broaddus there 35-27 and then lost to them here 54-29. Again the D. E. team sent us down to defeat after we had led most of the way through the game, coming from behind to score enough points to beat us 37-30. Our last home game brought Salem here. They had the best team seen on our floor during the season, giving us a severe drubbing, 51-35. The last game of the season was played with Wesleyan at Buckhannon, where they defeated us in a grea t game, 25-19. Basket Ball Writeups WILLAM SAMPLES " Bill " is our pivot man and fills this position very well. He is always where the ball is and takes the knocks with a smile. " Bill " shares the honor of captaincy with Hefner. This is his third year on the varsity and with another year in which to show his wares the other schools will have to step to beat us. PAUL HEFNER " Rink " has the honor of sharing the captaincy with " Bill, " and sets a good example for the squad. His excellent guarding and fast floor work make him a very valuable man. This fact was recognized when he was given a position on the " best opponent " team selected by Davis-Elkins. Hefner has another year, and we are sure he can repeat this feat. CARROLL MICHAEL " Mike " is a consistent guard, breaking up passes and shots that seem to be sure scores for the opponents. This is " Mike ' s " third year of varsity basketball and when he dons the F. S. C. uniform next year we may look for more stellar performances from him. CLYDE HICKMAN " Hick " is the scoring ace of our team, his beautiful shots from the side of the floor being enough to worry the opponents to defeat. When a score is needed he usually comes through, being a dead shot from the free throw line. " Hick " shares the honor of being on the " best opponent " team selected by the championship Davis-Elkins team. Clyde will be with us again next year and we look for great things from him. RICHARD HAWKINS " Hayseed " came to us this year from the reserves. He usually scored at critical moments with his brilliant shooting. " Hayseed " will be back next year, which means that one forward position will be well cared for. ALTON 9TEALEY " Tub " came to us from Marshall College where he was quite an athlete. He was on the bench part of the time due to appendicitis, but when a dependable guard was needed " Tub " was right there ready to aid the cause in the best way possible. He will be back next year in first class condition and what a time the opposing teams are going to have, as " Tub " makes life miserable for the scoring aces of opponents. CHARLES McDADE " Mickey " started the year as a regular forward, but was shifted to the reserve position later. He has two more years with us and we hope he plays as well as he did when in the game this year. " Mickey " is one of the best floor men on the squad, being fast and very dependable on defense. BARD HICKMAN Bard came to us from Grafton High where he played a great game. He was scheduled to repeat here, but in the first week of practice he turned his ankle and was not able to make the regular team. Bard has three years left in which to fight for the Maroon and White and we look for great things from him before he obtains a sheepskin for competent work in school. LAWRENCE HALL " Farmer " was the smallest man on the squad, but almost a dead shot from any position and a very dependable defensive man. " Farmer " is one of the peppiest men on the squad and when sent in to pull the game from the fire he made the best of all the opportunities. He has two more years with us. SCOTT DAVIS " Scotty " was a most efficient manager and one who was well-liked by the players. 117 I ' lEUE MdDUMlD Class Tournament |j! | P!jOON after basketball season started we heard a lot of talk about the class |s!£lJ| having the best basketball team. This was stopped when our assistant coach H?§ 3?)J Dawson said that on the 23rd of February the classes were to have a tournament. — - The first game of the tournament was played between the Junior College Class and the Normal team, the two Normal classes having united to form one team. The Juniors won the fracus in easy style by the grand score of 52 to 6. The exalted Seniors played the lowly Freshmen in the second game of the evening, which proved to be a thriller. The Freshmen won the game by a score of 2 1 to 18. The Freshmen then played the Juniors the third game of the tournament and emerged on the long end of a 35 to 29 score. The Seniors and Sophomores were redrawn and played one another, the Sophomores being no match for the more experienced Seniors. The grand surprise of the tournament came in the meeting of the Junior and Senior team;, to deter- mine who would play the Freshmen as a preliminary to the Salem College-Fairmont College game. The Juniors fell before the Seniors, who won easily by the score of 29 to 18. The final game was played between the Freshmen and the Seniors. The Seniors took the lead at the start of the game and were never headed, winning by a handsome margin, the score being 26 to 1 8. This stopped all talk of who had the best basketball team, and enabled us to turn our attention to baseball with real zest and vigor. The champion Senior team was composed of the following men: George Moosey, Kenneth Whoolery, Carlyle Smail, Clarence Brock, Dorwin Wolfe, Dale Snodgrass. Audrey Yoho, and Raymond Scott. a ' .HK ML (D If 7 :x m Eighth Annual High School HE Eighth Annual Sectional Basketball Tournament for high schools, held under the auspices of the Fairmont State College on Friday and Saturday, March 4 and 5, 1927, at the College Gymnasium, proved to be a great suc- cess; in fact, the most successful tournament ever held by the College. Much of this success was due to the efficient and satisfactory manner in which Jasper Cole- bank, College director and coach, conducted the tournament. Sixteen high school basketball quintets were entered in the tournament. They were as follows: Fairmont, East Side, Hundred, Kingwood, Rivesville, Barrackville, Morgan- town, Masontown, West Monongah, Shinnston, Mannington, Littleton, Blacksville, Wadestown, Fairview and Farmington. Four games were played in the opening session on Friday afternoon, March 4. Four more games were played on Friday evening, and then four contests were played in the tri-finals on Saturday morning, March 5. The semi-finals were held on Saturday afternoon, while the final game was fought that night. All of the games in each of the sessions were played with the " never say die " spirit, due to the exceptionally keen rivalry of the competing teams. Fairmont, after having mowed down Kingwood, Hundred and Shinnston, toppled East Side, their rivals from across the Monongahela River, in the final struggle for the title by the score of 39 to I 4.

It ranked with the best teams in the [jgfbf state and was one of which we could well be proud. Only two of last year ' s men were lost for this season and that deficiency will be more than made up by the many new aspirants, so the prospects seem very bright for another winning team. The coaches feel confidant that our baseball team will more than regain the laurels which the other athletic teams have tentatively lost. We have in school such experienced men as Clyde Hickman, veteran pitcher and slugger; Herbert Henry, a finished catcher; Carroll Michael, a first class first base- man; Lawrence Hall, pitcher and outfielder; Carlyle Smail, veteran short fielder; Paul Hefner, outfielder; and Charles McDade, outfielder. Then, too, we have the men of less experience and ability who will press the old hands for their positions. © seossN© TffiiiE Mound @ a © r. ennts I SSf ' J ENNIS for a number of years was a thriving sport at Fairmont State College, ||g™ y but during the last three playing seasons has been sadly neglected. In the l l ggPI course of the building of the new library the courts in the rear of the main building were torn up beyond repair by the passage of heavily laden motor trucks over them. This condition, no courts on which to play tennis, brought about a trying situation. Several attempts to secure courts were to no avail because of lack of funds with which to build them. The demand for playing space on the campus finally brought into being a tennis organization known as the " Racquetteers, " which with the assistance of a small sum of money, a horse and plow, succeeded in constructing a very good court on the summit of College Hill. The court was used from dawn until dusk all of last Spring and Summer, 1926, and this year as soon as the weather was suitable the court was filled daily with either Racquetteers or Outing Club girls. A team was formed to represent the College this year and during the late Spring played several matches with teams from this locality. With the building of more courts this Summer should come a revival of tennis that will overshadow the interest of several years ago, when Fairmont State College was noted for its tennis teams as well as its other athletic teams. y I KV V A 1 1 b- Ak A ==r mh t wy Aw K3 HBi£ D THICK MUMIjIVT) OJSWBH » FACE THE J " UN Don ' t hunt for trouble, but look for ; You ' ll find what you look for — don ' t look for distress ! If you see but your shadow, remember I pray, That the sun is still shining, but you ' re in the way! Don ' t grumble, don ' t bluster, don ' t dream and don ' t shirk. Don ' t think of your worries, but think of your work. The worries will vanish, the work will be done — No man sees his shadow who faces the sun. — M. P. Skinner. " I I ' in K MI CD HT K f ED ®P33£g eD s Woman Mans Shadow? " Say, are not women truly then Styled but the shadows of us men? " p8p|k]|OES the raising of this question inpugn the name of woman? Does it smack |%B|pU of something derogatory to her? A shadow is a reflected image. Is it com- j%$3f i q plimentary to woman to say she is a reflection of man? Who is content to be a replica? Certainly not the female of the species. Never has so much thought been given to the status of woman as at the present time. Almost any magazine one picks up contains an article on woman. She has always been more or less of an unknown quantity, a riddle, a thorn in man ' s flesh. Because of her innate cleverness, her subtleness, her astuteness, she has, in every age of the world, been a keen rival or competitor against man ' s wits. In the realm of pictorial art shadows are indispensible. They give character to the production, reflect the spirit of the object, provoke thought. Since shadows play so important a part, who is better qualified than woman, who in her various moods is light, dark, gay, elusive? Suppose she is his shadow. If being a shadow implies following, then woman is logically man ' s shadow since Adam was created first. But the precedence gained was soon lost because Adam lacked the stamina to resist Eve ' s initiation in offering him the apple. While they both sinned in eating the forbidden fruit, Eve was no longer a shadow behind him — she was abreast of Adam, both occupying the same position. Joan of Arc was no shadow. She had the courage to advance with only a vision to guide her. Queen Elizabeth was no shadow in her method of diplomatic procedure. Take the woman of today. She has been a shadow with few exceptions, until recently. In art, religion, education, music, politics, business, almost every field, she is rapidly forging ahead no longer to be branded as a shadow that follows. Shumann- Heink ' s name is as well known as Caruso ' s, Carrie Chapman Catt ' s as Al Smith ' s. Woman ' s advent into public life has been retarded because of domestic duties which until recently have been carried on in a cumbersome manner. With the many labor-saving devices at her disposal, household drudgery has been reduced to a minimum. Through present day lectures and clubs she is better informed as to the effective and intelligent way of rearing her children. Because of these advances she has more time for outside interests which make her a more interesting and responsive mother. She is no longer merely a shadow in the home, behind the stove, the broom and the washboard. As the early morning shadows are rather hazy and indistinct, likewise in the early ages of civilization woman was regarded as a chattel to be bought and sold, recognized or despised as pleased man ' s fancy. As the day advances and shadows take a more definite form, so woman is coming into her own, making a definite place for herself, filling every nook and cranny. And if woman is a shadow behind man in business; has she had the same un- hampered chance man has? If the positions were reversed wouldn ' t woman be casting the shadow? Could the dreariness of a rainy day be due to the absence of shadows? Would one compare man with a rainy day??? ' ■■ ' ■ " Tunas MI o tj p ad To be a man ' s shadow does not necessarily mean woman is behind him. A shadow can be along side of, or even in front. Light determines its location. This light is Public Opinion and its rays are so strong that man is no more able to resist their effect than is the flower in the field independent of its controlling light. Is it a reflection on man that his shadow, which was originally behind him has caught up with him? Perhaps he, like Peter Pan, would like to put on his shadow, but the day for that has passed. This sparring of wits might have been averted if the Omnipotent had created man and woman at one and the same time, giving them both an equal chance. But then how ungainly man would be without a shadow! ! — Kathryn Beltzhoover. Fire burns, unquenched fire. Fire also purifies. I have been burned before — I dread the fire. But flesh is not pure.

The term abbreviation implies a shortening, a contracting, a narrowing down. Ab- breviations have always been used, but the quxkened pulse of the twentieth century demands the expressing of one ' s thou r h s in a short, concise manner. The day for meditating and contemplating has passed. Th s is an a3e of quick thought and quick action. In days gone by, anniversaries, weddings, funerals, were observed by the writmg of notes containing beautifully expressed thoughts. Now we are admonished to " Say it with flowers " ! In order to belong to and attend the numerous clubs of today, womens clubs, bridge clubs, book clubs, sewing clubs, church societies, and so forth, we have less time for keeping house. This highly organized life we lead, and the demands it makes on our time, have resulted in the modern apartment house, which is an abbrevia- tion of the home. In this condensed and compact mode of living, the household dutie«-. are soon over and each member of the family can flee to his own interests. In the larger towns and cities the problem of cooking is abbreviated through the delicatessen shops. Returning late from a shopping expedition or a club meeting, one seeks these shops as a port in a storm, to supplement an otherwise scanty meal. An abbreviated form is used in the degrees issued by our colleges, also in referring to radio stations. Cable messages are sent in code. Messages in the army are trans- mitted by signals. An effective use of the abbreviation is shown by the man who had been spending some time in the North and was suddenly called South. Being unpre- pared for the sudden change in climate, he sent the following telegram to his wife: S. O. S.; B. V. D.; P. D. Q. ; R. S. V. P. Skirts have become abbreviated to an alarming extent. If they continue to get any shorter the question before the public will not be " why the girls leave home, " but " how may one wear skirts and still sit on them " ? Our clever advertisements and signboards are excellent examples of effective ab- breviations. Certain phases are synonamous for specific articles. " It floats, " suggests Ivory Soap. " Eventually — Why Not Now? " Gold Medal Flour. This is a day of specializing — abbreviating in the sense of narrowing our efforts to some specific line. As a result in educational circles we save time by early concentrating on some one sub- ject and molding our college course around it, thus avoiding irrelevant studies. This is true of our reading matter, as may be shown by a visit to our present day news- stand. The magazines are so specialized, narrowed down, abbreviated, that we may go directly to the line in which we are interested. Vaudeville is abbreviated amusement. In this wheel of entertainment there is a spoke for every one. It is a miscellaneous pro- gram consisting of dances, acrobatics, popular skits, etc., offering to the busy person a brief change from the more serious things of life. Of what advantage is this urge for abbreviating, this saving of time? It stimulates keen and clear thinking. It necessitates one ' s making an inventory of his goods and deciding on its outstanding value. The next step is to preesnt it to the public through some crisp phrase, slogan or abbreviation. The desirable is singled out and the public is confronted with it. We live in more of a rush than we used to, but isn ' t it true that we get more out of life? Our span of life may be lessened, we may not live as long as our fathers, but we live a more varied life than they did. Our life is so well catologued representing the departments of health, home, busi- ness, amusements, clubs, etc., that we live a fuller, richer existence in an age of effi- cient abbreviation. — Kathryn Beltzhoover. i , a !. i ii EDS — —and CO-EDS 9 1 .-» r Ui t is m k i ft Bit — 0 ' — Honey - r I! 1 iLU K M O TU K II ' D Laugh and the World Laughs With You First in love: You have an ultra-violet beauty.
