TO DR. J. W. P. JARVIS
Q a man to whom we might dedicate
was this issue o the Paw Paw. To do
this was a task that did not require much
thought or labor on our part because it
had ALWAYS been decided to dedicate
our bool: this year to our patriotic fellow-
townsman and hard working and efficient
President of our Board of Education, Dr.
J. W. P. Jarvis. While we cannot claim
Dr. Jarvis as ours entirely, since he must
and does share himself with the other
schools of the district, we feel that our
share of him is ours plus. In him do we
feel, in a peculiar way, that Fairview High
School has one of its warmest friends and
most ardent helpers. And so, since it is
not the purpose of a dedicatory paragraph
to eulogize completely, let this paragraph
say without further comment: to Dr.
W.P. Jarvis, because of his worth and
merit, and because of his friendship to
our own Fairview High School, this issue
of the upaw Pawn is fondly dedicated.

PROPHECY OF FAIRVIEW HIGH SCHOOL
f '1 S I now look .back over the
I 1 past work done by Fairview
A Y High Schzol since it was es-
'I tablislei in the fall of 1911,
I see much that has been accomplish-
ed by the school's faculty and stu-
degts. Such uny-elding labor that
has ben Cone 'io make us a iirst-class
High School in four ye irs, can but
carry us to a glorious victory at the
top of the ladder of faire, and I see
brightly shining through the future
the "good 1h.ngs" that are to be ours
in the years to come.
The good work that we are now
doing will bring to the school more
teachers like those who are now earn-
estly laboring for the betterment of
the school. Also new and better
equipment will be secured, and the
school's stu 'ent body will continue to
increase steadily in numbers.
As the labor of the progressive
townspeople, lhe school strdcnts, and
the faculty hive brought to our town
a gymnasium second to none in this
part of the state, so will their labors
bring a ne .v and l'rQe high school
building that will be suiicient for the
large and ever growing school.
Through the eager eiorts of our
Coach, Hubert Ward, oar strong
basket ball team will win many
honors and victories, that will bring
more fame, than that of the past, to
our Fair view town and its supporting
citizens, who have he ped us to have
a team that any high school would be
As to baseball, football and other
athletics, which have not been as en-
thusiastically pursued as basket ball,
I have to say that in the coming year
new spirit will be put into the games,
which will win ,for us the much covet-
And thus in every way I see the
high school profiting from every help-
ful thing that is done for it by the
public-spirited townspeople, T h u s
through the future I see Fairview
High School steadily climbing ever
upward toward the goal that only
time, perseverance, and labor of stu-
dents, townspeople, and faculty will

has laeen chosen as Sponsor of the Class of 1916.
Sled Coming to Fairview, as he did, and building up a
first-class high-school certainly indicates that this man
possesses unusual talents, not only as a teacher, laut as an
individual as well. Through his own worth he has grown
until, at present, he is the efficient County Superintend-
ent of Marion County. And this is not all. He promises
to advance still further, and we prophecy that in the near
future he will stand jqrst among the Stateis foremost edu-
cators. Certainly the1q16 Class of the Fairview High
School can well feel proud and honored for haying named
their class after this illustrious young man.
SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY
aj'j'w5 NE afternoon thii spring, I
was sitting in the ,ibfary of
sf Fairview High whe.e I had
It is come to read a re defence
wh.ch Mr. Shurtleff had assigned to
me. As I sit by .he .ibra .y t,b e, ob-
lgvlous of time and place, a dream
came to me, showin g the destiny oi
As I dreamed, I found myself in
Philadel,gh-a, seated in a lar-e hall
vlhch was Llled to its uimest capaci-
ty. A lecture was in progressg ard,
of co -.r-e, my attenton was drawn to
the spe ker .n vahgm 1 recogmized my
old f r i e n d, "See ls" llLcBee H no uv
known as Lyle. He was delivering a
stormy address against the co-cduca-
tioggal system of our colfeges.
Coming out from this hall, I notic-
ed a crowd of German oflicers, con-
spicious among whom was a smartly
dressed man who wore many badges
and insignia of honor. Despite his
foreign companions, there was a
familar air about him, and, like a
Hash, it dawned upon me thzt this
was Count von Tcothman, fozmerly
our Plennie, who, during the W r,
had rendered such valuable services
to the Ge mans by collecting copper
for them that they had honored him
with a title and a posltion of great
As I passed down the street, I be-
came conscious of much confusion
about me. I looked up and saw a
large parade coming down ihe stre tt.
It was a suifragette delegation and
the leader was Mary Cox, the "Mrs,
Panlrhurst of Aniercaf' As she drew
close: I saw that she was wearing on
her coat a conspicicus button-
As I passed on I saw standing be-
fore a door a familiar Hgure talking
in a persuaslve manner to a woman,
and I, oJe..hearing a few remarks,
heard Ocal King say, 'tYes, King
Reynold Compound is good for man
and beast." 'Ihis is just what we
thought Ocal wo-.ld be, a chemist of
renown. He is now seHing a wonder-
ful clemical compound which he pre-
pared in Mr. Reynold's laboratory.
Who is that gray-haired Woman
with the dark eyes in f1o.'.t of the
Hull House in Chicago? Why, it's
Naomi Morris talking wilh Jane Ad-
dams, and now I know why we have
not heard from Naomi for so long.
She is doing a great work silently-
Hee the dream grew hazy, then
suddenly cleared and I rellized that
it was daybreak and th gt I was look-
ing down a long dreafy, country roid.
Coming out of an old, tumbled-down
house appeared the beat figure of a
man who slowly climbed into his
buggy, pi :kei up the reiis in a desul-
tory manner and started slowly up
the road. As he drew nearer, I re-
cognized our old frfefd, Frank Hogue
rot by his hair, for it is gray and his
face is lined with care, but by his
eyes. Could this be our old fun-lov-
ing friend of Fairview High who
rever took life seriously? Yes, it
w's he and he is a country doctor.
Then in my dreams I saw a farm in
Tucker County and was told that in
the pretty cottage dwells Monta Mer-
rill who, soon after graduation, mar-
riel a prosperous farmer and lives
now in quiet happiness.
But what is that I see, a class-
room? Yes, and the teacher is Var-
ina O'Dell. Now I know it is the
High School of Grape Island, West
Virginia. Varina is teaching Ger-
man. I heard her say, "Ubersetzen
Sie wieder, bitter das is nicht recht."
Oh, this is such a beautiful dream
and such a delightful dream-fairy
who now leads me to a beautiful
house on a prominent street of Buck-
hannon. Here I saw a porch party
in progress and recognized in the
charming hostess, Irene Gillelandg
but on inquiry I learned that she is
now the wife of Harland Lough, the
present successful athletic coach of
West Virginia W e s l e y a n College.
Their home is a meetfng place for the
students, who spend many joyous
evenings with them.
The dream-fairy smiled at me and
I now realized the cause of the smi'eg
for I, yes I, am the instiuctor of Eng-
lish in the South Western University
of California. 'F 3' H' "' "' "' Just then a
door opened and I, still dreaming,
thought that it was the door of my
classroom opening for my class in
"Macbeth" to enter, when I was
aroused by hearing my dear friend
Irene say, "Come Florence, it is time
for basket ball practice."

If you could only lcnow
How much we miss you day lay day---
Tlwe class wliiclm loved you so.
Each day we see your dear, sweet face-H
But only weep the more---
Because we cannot see that face
Just as it was before.
We often wish to hear that voice
We always loyed to liearg
Or even see that pleasant smile
That every one did clieer.
Calantlma dear, our wishes now
Can lae but all in vain,
But some fair day--not far away--
We'll meet you once again.
" TI-IE PROGRESSIVE LEMANITES "
JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
"Some are dead
And some are married,
But clear the track
For those who tarriedf'
Cs ' la, OME folks probably think that
Q there will neier be any 1917
graduating class. It is true
iU"fU that our class, since it orifin,
has hail mich sorrow. But could we
rightfully be called progressive if We
should desrairincfly "i e up? No!
We must do our duty no matter how
small our numbers.
In 1913, twelve in number, we en-
tered High School as "Freshies."
Ard, before roing any further, We
wish to thank the upper classmen,
one and all, for their courteous treat-
ment on our behalf.
Our coal in View hs always been
to be the third graduating class of
Fairvie '1 Fish School, Thouch our
class h's c'e1re'setl in number from
twelve to seven members, yet we
hope to march bravely on to "V-I-C-
Much Sorrow find orief cverwhe'm-
ed the Lemanites when two of our
most treasured members were called
to that Great Beyond to eniov its in-
ruwerable Pleasures. Both were
girls we all loved dearly. Jean was
taken from us about midwinter: and,
some months later. after the publica-
tion of the "Paw Paw" for 1915, Cal-
antha was called as one of God's
beautifrl, sweetest and most perfect
However, death is not the only
thing that can deprive a class of its
members. When they fall deeply in
love, as did two of our fair damsels,
Flossie and Grace, then it is time to
bid them adieu, for it is not books
and knowied ze that laden their young
minds but the good looks and win-
ning ways of their future mates.
Marriage, like all other things is all
rib ht in its placeg but as we are now
livin g in a commerical age, how much
wiser it will be for the other mem-
bers of the class to be graduates of
Fairview High School!
The Ieaman class now has seven
meirbersz and, with light hearts, we
hone to be the graduating class of
1917. No matter where we go we
rhall rlways sing our old song "Hail
It's Fairview Juniors, it's Fairview

JUNIOR CLASS EVENTS
NE beautiful afternoon last
x May we had our first class
picnic. Jim procured for us
the necessary hay wagon and
and, to properly fit them for
our purpose, we decorated them with
green and gold bunting. After ar-
ranging our cooking utensils and bas-
kets of edibles in secure positions, we
mounted our much decorated convey-
ance and were ready to start-not,
however, without repeated injunc-
tions to Sam not to fall into the egg
We had not decided upon any par-
ticular location for our outing 3 but
after driving for several miles-most
of the time rattling along at a break-
neck speed-we began to look for a
stopping place.. We soon found a
spot that appeiled to us all-a green
meadow made beautiful with its
large oak trees a n d murmuring
Here we started our camp fire and
spread our supper, and I should like
to state right now that there are
several girls in our class who as
cooks could compete with any French
As we lingered at supper, the peace
of the evening fell upon us all. The
little birds sang their evening songs
to us from the tree-tops, happily con-
tributing to our enjoyment.
All too soon the shadows began to
lengthen and we prepared to return
to our homes. As we drove slowly
along in the early spring twilight, we
watched the stars come out and de-
cided that this was the loveliest time
of the day.
Soon we reached town and attract-
ed much attention as we sang our
songs and gave our class yell to let
everybody know that the J uniofs had
had a good time.
One of our happiest meetings was
in November, when our president
royally entertained us at a dinner
party at "The Edge." A most elabor-
ate dinner was served and as favors,
we were given tiny baskets of bon-
bons. As we were bidding good-by to
our host, we were informed that our
good time was not yet over, for Mr.
ShurtleH had planned to take us all
to the "Movies," and of course we
were delighted with this ending for
our pleasant evening.
Our next exploit was a play, which
we gave in the High School auditor-
ium. It was entitled "An Old Planta-
tion Night ," and our friends who saw
Uncle Rastus, Aunt Marthy and the
young folks perform pronounced our
first play a decided success.

The class of 1918! When did these
words first come to have a meaning
to us? Why, it was on a certain
forenoon in September 1914, while all
nature seemed to be standing in
solemn expectancy of some unpreced-
ented event, the class of 1918 held
its first election and so became a class
indeed. At this time we chose Gay
Shuman as our president. Our re-
putation as an extraordinary class
was well established at this early
period. Our very number attracted
widespread attention and the unusual
good qualities of its members assert-
ed thernselves. Progressive, active
and enerietic in all high school af-
fairs, we made our presence felt. We
took part in all athletics and here we
won renowned fame. The time now
passed swiftly towards the end of the
term, and our first year with its
trials and tribulations was over.
ITH sundry threats and
The opening of the fall term found
us in our accustomed places once
more, but now full-fledged sopho-
mores. This year we again elected
Gay Shuman class president and took
as our sponsor and advisor Mr. L. E.
Reynolds. With such persons at our
head we could not help but succeed.
In the beginning of the year we gave
the Freshmen an opening reception,
then we gave one to the school, and
later several Fresmen-Sophomore
receptions were celebrated. When
the time came for the Sophomores to
entertain at Chapel we willingly took
up the task and performed it to the
best of our ability. The program was
of a musical nature, and the boys'
chorus, composed of Erwin Tooth-
man, Sterling Brohard, Guy Haught,
and Harland Gillelandg and the girls'
chorus composed of Margaret Cowan,
Lillian Mitchell, Ethel Haught, and
Lillian McElroy, rendered the music.
Again we won fame in athletics.
Where would the basket ball or base-
ball be if it were not for Shuman,
Underwood and Brookover? And in
football we have Underwood, Brook-
over, Straight, Gilleland, Fluharty
and Villinger. In girls' basket ball
we are well represented by Ruth
Weaver, Lillian Mitchell and Pearl
Waters. Summing up all these facts,
dear reader, could you find a better
class in Fairview or out than the
class of 1918?
Now, with this brief portrayal of
the past and with the most brilliant
prospects for the future, the histor-
ian lays aside her pen, fully admit-
ting that "the half has never been

that we are worthy of notice.
We entered school last fall with
forty-one members and have lost but
In our class we have ore of the
mighty athletes, Roy Williams, who
is both a football and basket ball
star, and Park Weaver and Albert
Moore are no scrubs.
Many other members of the class
are not athletes but have forged to
the front along other lines. In school
work we all plunge on with unfalter
ing determination to improve our
minds as no other Freshman Class
has ever been able to do.
We have tried to contribute our
share of energy and enthusiasm to
the Work in the school room and to
the enjoyment of the many good
times which we have shared with the
other classes of the High School.
Once this year we even did our best
in a chapel programme to show the
teachers of the High Sghool how
they teach us, and we know that we
"crowned ourselves with glory."
Ambition, determination, persever-
ance, and tenacity are the watch-
words of the class of 1919 and we are
sure ihlt we shall all have our names
inscribed "in gold" on the Roll of

THE STUDENT BODY ASSOCIATION
JAMES UN DE RWOOD

MYRA BLAKER . . Vice President
RUTH WEAVER .
The Student Body Association is
the largest and most important or-
ganizaion in the Fairview High
School. It was organized through
the incuenie of Mr. Oliver Shurtleff.
Its puipose is to promote the general
welfare of the school and to unite
the strdents in a body.
A fee of twenty cents per year is
assessed each student. At the be-
ginning of each semester ten cents is
collected. This money is used for in-
cident:l expenses incurred through-
out the year, such as school socials
and entertainments and iiowers for
the sick of the school.
The dramatic Club of the Fairview
Hilh School is made up of those stu-
dents who have taken part in any of
the school entertainments during the
present school year. The club's pur-
pose is to produce entertainments and
pfays that will help "drive dull care
away" and give the student body and
its friends that amount of play which
is always necessary.

A DREAM COMES TRUE 1 also A PROPHECY
THE HIGH SCHOOL
course of events that there
NK, was founded a t o wn called
' Fairview, and situated on Paw
Paw creek in the district of Paw Paw
in Mar-on County, West Virg inia. In
the true course of events there was
established by Big Bill Ice and his
Board of Education a High School in
this sarre town of Fairview. In the
true course of events t his High
School grew from an infant in swad-
dling clothes to a mature stature.
It travefed through the stages of
development from an unclassified
High School, third class High School,
T so happered in the true
second class High School, FIRST
CLASS HIGH SCHOOL. It may
well be said to be not only a High
School of the first class but a FIRST
CLASS HIGH SCHOOL.
Mr. Romine and Mr. Shurtleff in
the early days were a "One-Man"
faculty. The growth was too rapid
and other teachers had to be added
to the list. Not only this but special
teachers had to be procured for de-
partmental subjects. A teacher for
History, a teacher for English, a
teacher for Languages, a teacher for
Science, a teacher for Mathematics.
A High School of this sort was a
Dream in the past but now it is a liv-
ing reality and a community need.
The leading citizens of the town do
not feel that they could well do with-
out the High School. There are one
hundred students at Fairview High
today. There will be more in 1916-
17. Everybody boosts for the High
School. Its best advertisement is its
finished product which makes good
wherever it goes.
Another dream has come true in
Fairview. This is no idle dream of
which we speak, this is another real-
ity brought about by the confidence
of the citizens of the town who have
at heart the best interests of both
school and town.
In this High School spoken about
above. in the record showing the
growth of the institution, was found
to be a number of "live wires" among
the boys and girls. It happened that
one member of the faculty had been
a member of various college athletic
teams in the past years and that he
ard these "live wires" decided to try
their fortunes at some of the athletic
Baseball was a decided success.
Winter came on and there was noth-
ing "doing" for the young folks for
this season. Basketball was thought
to be the thing, provided a building
could be had .for the playing of the
game. The old schoolhouse opera
house, a very much dilapidated build-
ing, was rented and Hxed up to a cer-
tain extent, uniforms and shoes pur-
chased, candidates called and basket
ball had its advent in Fairview, West
This wonderful development of the
team which now represents the High
School is well known over the state
for it has been in most of the towns
of the northern, central section show-
ing its worth and strength. It has
played the schools of the big towns
and has defeated them in as many
instances as it has been defeated.
The team made itself felt in the West
Virginia High School Tournament
held at Buckhannon last year.
All the games of the seasons past
had been played in a chicken-coop af-
fair of a gymnasium. It was the best
the town afforded, however. It was
not good enough and the good men of
Fairview saw the light and said, "we
will build a decent gymnasium for
the boys." The hard work of the
boys and girls ffor the girls had
teams too and were the big rooters
and boosters for the boysl in this
case only goes to show that where
merit is found there will also be
found some sympathy for it, and
where help is needed, help will be
Meeting of the prominent men of
the town were held and the
an architect employed, plans approv-
ed, a company organized, stock cer-
tificates issued and the gymnasium
While this movement was made
primarily for the High School the
building is so designed that it may be
used for other purposes as well.
The Fairview Athletic Association
Company has for its ofiicers:
G. R. Miller, President
C. S. Jarvis, Vice President
W. D. Yost, Secretary
O. E. Morris, Treasurer.
J. L. Tennant
D. 0. Hanes
J. W. P. Jarvis
D. B. Chalfant
G. R. Miller

W. D. Yost.
Where in the world but in Fair-
view would you find such a group of
men as this?
There a r e many others whose
names are not mentioned who have
been heart and soul in the movement
with their words of encouragement
and hard work. Among these should
be m e n tio n e d "Skeets" Walter
Lough. He has been a tireless work-
er for the gym.
The big thing in the history of the
Fairview High School is the way the
people of the community and the
High School asa unit work together
for the common good of all, The
students and teachers are hard work-
ers for the school at any or all hours
of the day or night.
Thirteen years ago when the pres-
ent building was built at Fairview the
person who would have been guilty
of saying that in this time Fairview
would have a High School of the
first-class, such a faculty as they
have, a gymnasium built by the good
yeople of the town, such a commun-
ity spirit, would have been called a
or false prophet. Yet
this Drecm, if such it can be named,
come true, a n d these
thlngs have come to pass.
Let us go one Dream further, in
prophecy, if such you please, and
state that in ihe next fevv years Fair-
view will have a NEW HIGH
SCHOOL BUILDING of the most
modern type and that the enrollment
of this High School will, at such a
time, be close to two hundred. De-
partments of m o d e r n agriculture
with a school farm, manual training
shop, domestic art and science, a
commericial school will be establish-
ed in this school. Let us dream that
the old building will be utilized as a
con'olidated school whiih will be
made possible by the coming of
"Good Roals" in this district.

RESUME OF BASKET BALL
AT FAIRVIEW HIGH
yi . ITH the ad.ent of basket
i ' . ball in 1913 the game has
steadily grown in popular-
ity untll now it is the major
sport in Fairview High. As has been
told in a previous article, the erection
of the new gymnasium by the good
people of the town has done wonders
to increase interest in the game.
Having gotten into our new quarters
right after Xmas, it can be readily
seen that this has been the banner
year ,for basket ball. Although the
team was somewhat handicapped on
account of the lack of a pre-arranged
schedule and on account of illness
among the respective players, yet the
form displayed during the last six
weeks of the season was of first-
class form. If space permitted, much
could be said concerning the person-
nel of the team. Suilice it to say,
however, that on it were some of the
best athletes that ever donned a high
school uniform. If the members of
the 1916 teams continue in the future
as in the past, it is safe to say that
they will be heard of in the athletics
of some of our colleges. Following is
the line-up and record of the team:

GIRLS' BASKET BALL
T? UCH interist was displayed
tg by the girls this season as
'Q ff regards basket ball. Ow-
' S ing to the fact that they
did not start practice until late in
Janutry, it was imposible to arrange
games with outside teams. How-
ever, many exciting conteits were
he d between the girls themselves
and some good exhibitions of basket
ball were given. On Februiry nine-
teenth a public game was played be-
tween the first and second teams.
Since many of this year's players
will return to school next year, Fair-
view High can rest assured that she
will be well represented in the line
of girls' basket ball.
Following is the line-up:
Marie Morris, f.

TI-IE FOOTBALL TEAM
f-IORTLY after school began last fall a general de-
mand was made by the Hred-bloodsu of Fairview
High fora football team. This demand was satis-
fied and two games were scheduled with Mannington
High. Fairview was defeated in both games and no apolo-
gies are offered. The boys played good, hard football, but
lacked experience. Not a member of the team ever played
in a real football game until the Fall of 1915. According
to 'iHurr57-Upi' Yost, who assisted in fheir coaching, some
of the boys showed real football brains, and, with proper
coaching should develop into real gridiron stars. rfhe en-
trance of Fairview High into the Monongahela Valley
inter-High School League adds interest along all lines of
athletics and especially is this true of football. Next Fall
should see a winning team for old F. H. S.

HOW ANDY GOT TO GO TO
fp nm LHHH QQ ARTHY, I'm goin' to drive
3 if, 7 to town to get some chick-
en feed and some middlin's.
' i J when Andy comes home
tell him to feed the chi-kens and get
in the eggs."
After giving these instructions Mr.
Cumbry climbed into his old buggy,
gave 'Old D1ck,' the hor-e, a tap with
the whip and rattled away toward
Mr. and Mrs. Cumbry were two
people who had lived so far in the
country that they seldom went to
town unless it was absolutely neces-
sary. Recently, however, they had
moved on a farm just two and a half
miles from town, and, consequently,
these V i si t s naturally increased.
They had two children, a girl aged
ten and a boy aged fifteen, the latter
of whom had finished the common
school course the year before. He
had begged earnestly for his father
to allow him to enter high school but
Mr. Cumby had sad, "No," "A high
school education is of no use at all to
a farmer boy and not very much to
any one el.e," had been the father's
When Mr. Cumbry arrived in town
he hitched his horse to a post and
started up the street to get the
th'ngs. As he was passing a crowd
of men on one side of the street cor-
ner, he heard one of them say. "The
peop'e have voted down the road
bonds and the next thing to do is to
vote down the school 'levee' ".
"Now listen here," replied another
man to the speaker, "I want to tell
you something about the school in
this town. Vvhen my girl was in her
second year in high school they had
what they called a 'night school' one
evening and I was there. The first
room I went in was the English room.
'Ihat didn't interest me very much so
I went into another room. This was
the agriculture room and I tell you
they was a learnin' in there. I guess
it was the day to make things. They
got tools and boards and in a little
while they had built a first class
chicken coop. I was curious about
that chicken coop and when it was
finished I went over where it was and
examined it. Every nail was drove
straight, every board was put on
straight and it peeled to me that it
would take something more than a
chicken to knock it down. I was so
interested in this class that I forgot
all about anything else until I heard
somephing like a telephone ring and
then all the pupils got their hats and
coats ard went home."
Mr. Cumbry has stood and listened
to all of the conversation and after
the man finished speaking, stepped
up to h m and sald, "Sir, do you know
when they are going to have another
night school ?"
"That is just what I am coming
to," he replied. "Vi hen it was all over
the other night I went to the prin-
cipal of the school and asked him
when he would have another night
school. He told me that as so many
of the parents had asked for another
night school he would have one more
before school closed. I asked him to
let me know when it would be. I am
interested in night schools and I am
going back next time."
"Have you found out when that
will be?" eagerly asked Mr. Cumbry.
"Yes, I found out today. It will be
next Thursday night."
Mr. Cumbry drove home very slow-
ly on his return trip. In fact, he did
not know he was going at all, so busy
was his mind with the things he had
heard about the high school which
his son had begged so hard to be al-
lowed to attend.
The next Thursday evening 1Mr.
Cumbry dressed and went to attend
the night school. It was late when
he got back home.
"Marthy," said he, calling out to
his wife as he entered the room, "I
have something to tell you. I have
been over to night school and I have
decided that Andy shall go to high
school. I have secured him a board-
ing place and he shall begin next
Monday. There's six weeks yet, they
call it 'prep' school and I reckon if it
will do the others some good it will
help Andy also."
Mrs. Cumby went to her husband,
saying with much joy, "Oh Bob, I am
so glad. I did want our son to go to
high school so bad but as you were
opposed to it so much I never men-
tioned it. I am sure that our Andy
will 'make good' ".
And so the night session of the
school sent Andy to high school.

claimed Rose Brown as she

M back p o r c h, newspaper in
hand, and rushed down the walk to
meet her cousin. "Just look at this
advertisement. It's just the very
thing to catch an old maid, with a
couple like us to help it." And she
read aloud the following:

"Just the thing for Aunt Sman-
thy," exclaimed Ruth. "We'll give
her the real thing for once and then
she will not be able to say she never
had a romance, poor thing."
"We'll have to go slow," suggested
Rose. "We've played so many tricks
on her she'll be on the lookout."
"Let's cut this notice out and put
it in a peach and let her get the
peach," said Ruth.
"No," said Rose, "she would think
we or the boys did it. Do you think
Charley could think of anything so
"Never," declared Ruth, "but be
that as it may, we must see that she
gets this chance." ,
"Oh! I know," said Rose as she and
Ruth reached the porch and began
paring peaches. She'll be down in a
little while and when we hear her
coming, we'll be talking about this no-

So when Aunt Samanthy came
down the hall, her curiosity was
aroused by the discussions as to
whether a man, a mysterious man,
had blue or black eyes. Aunt Saman-
thy listened until she feared discov-
ery, then she opened the door in time
to see two blushing girls hide a piece
of paper, apparently cut from a
newspaper, behind them.
A few minutes later, Ruth's broth-
ers, Charley and Tom, coming along
in their wagon on their way to town,
took the girls with them, not, how-
ever, before Ruth had dropped, per-
haps accidently, a small bit of paper.
Of course this did not escape the
sharp eyes of the curious Aunt
Picking up the cut she read Mr.
White's proposal. Then, gazing off
into the distance, she exclaimed with
a radiant face, "De:.ry, you have sent
for me at last."
A brief correspondence followed
which revealed the fact that Mr.
White not only had black eyes but
was also a wealthy farmer.
At last it was arranged that Aunt
Samanthy was to arrive in Gorin
the .following Friday on the two thir-
ty train. For some weeks the old
farm house had been all a bustle and
hustle until you would have thought
from the rustle of silks that Aunt
Samanthy's trousseau came straight
Aunt Samanthy had been sitting
at the Gorin station almost an hour
when Aa good-natured, merry-faced,
black-eyed man came in, and, after
inquiring if she were not Miss
Samanthy Brown, introduced him-
self as Mr. George M. White. He
apologized for his tardiness-and in-
wardly congratulated himself upon
being able to secure such a strong,
healthy looking housekeeper.
"There'1l be so many of them
they'll most take your breath away,"
he exclaimed as he helped her in the
"So there is company", thought
Aunt Samanthy. "Well, it will be
nicer to be married before a crowd."
As they drove along, Mr. White
remarked about there being so much
work to do and female help being so
hard to obtain. At last they drove
down a shady lane to a pretty little
As Mr. White helped Aunt Saman-
thy from the wagon, he did not have
time to notice that she was trembling
from head to foot, for they were sud-
denly assailed by a troop of merry
children, followed by a pale, thin,
"Ah, gave you a surprise, didn't
they ?" exclaimed Mr. White as he
took a two year old child from the

HIGH SCHOOL NIGHT
Bradford came to Fairview
g - as the third number of the
if ' ti' high school lecture course.
high school night was celebrated.
The students assembled for the oc-
casion in the basement of the church
and the classes were put in their res-
pective places. The freshmen proud-
ly led the long procession to their re-
served seats while the faculty follow-
ed in the rear of our mighty class of
seniors. After the announcements
were made by Mr. Shurtleff, a mem-
ber of our faculty, Dr. Bradford was
Dr. Bradford began his great lec-
ture by giving some very striking
quotations. Then he spoke of the
great nation of America. "For a
nation to be great" he said, "it must
be commercially great, it must have
natural resources, it must be patri-
otic and it must have 'uncrowned
"Yesterday the nations around the
Mediterreanean Sea ruled the world
today the nations of Europe rule the
world, tomorrow America will rule
the world. Tomorrow is but a new
name for America. "When Tomor-
row shall have fully come, America
shall lead all mighty nations."
Then he turned to the students
and said, "Europe tells her children
to become apprentices to a certain
cast for seven years, but America ap-
prentices to 'Fairview High School'
HEN Chancellor George H.
and to an American college for seven
years. And if America is to lead the
nations tomorrow, it will be because
you boys and girls have been trained
to lead when tomorrow comes."
Dr. Bradford also talked of educa-
tion and how it might be obtained.
He said, "The price of an education
today is the desire for an education.
The desire pays the bill."
Following this came an interesting
story of his own experience. "When
I bade my father and mother good-
bye and started t o school I had eight
dollars and twenty five cents. This
was all my father could give me after
buying my railroad ticket. With
this I entered college. At four o'clock
on winter mornings I was out shovel-
ing snow from in front of million-.
aires' homes for fifteen cents an
hour. At five o'clock I was at the
university firing the furnace and ful-
filling the duties of a janitor. At ten
o'clock I was in the class room with
my classes. During the summer va-
cation I hired out as a coachman to
one of the Wealthy residents. Often
some of the students would pass me
with the remark as I sat at my place
on the carriage, 'Did you see that fel-
low back there on that coach? He
goes to our university but I guess he
has found his place in the world al-
ready'. Through it all I kept at it
and in the examinations I led my
classes and when commencement
time came I was given the honor of
delivering the class oration."
Dr. Bradford closed his lecture
with this statement, "Ireland has
her Shamrock, Scotland has her this-
tle, England has her rose, but Amer-
ica has her stars and stripes. The
shamrock, the .thistle and the rose
are of the earth, but the stars and
the stripes are of the sky and im-
His evening prayer was that not
only one but all would go out benefit-
ed by the lecture of the evening.
Night has come, no sounds we hear
Save those that come from vale and hill---
Some faint, some soft, some scarcely clear
Come from out the forest near.
All those sounds so sweet and shrill,
Softly fall on the drowsy ear.
The bat flits by on leathern wing
And from the grove the night-bird-lcing
Sends out his mournful 'iWho."
The night hawk shrielts as he goes by
And timid birds must hide from view
until he fades in the nightis darlx blue,
Then through the Wood is heard the C137
Of iiwhip-poor-will" 'till morning dew.

THE RESCUE OF "JACK"
before the insurrection in the
Philippines, and, when the trou-
' ble arose, I was appointed to
one opf the regiments sent to restore
order. We had been out for two days
aboard one of the large army trans-
ports, when a fearful storm came up.
Our ship, after being tossed about
for hours, was finally dashed upon a
rock and broken in the middle. We
knew it would only be a matter of
minutes until we should be lost if
quick action were not taken, so the
boats were filled with men and hasti-
ly lowered. When we sailed I took
with me my Scotch Collie, Jack, as
we were very good friends and he
had once saved my life by jumping
into the river and dragging me
ashore after I had fallen from a

In the excitement I entirely forzot
Jack, nor did I think of him until I
heard a faint whine when we were
about a hundred yards from the
crippled ship. Should I risk my life
to save him or should I let him
drown? Immediately that old say-
ing "Turn about is fair play" came to
my mind, and now it was my turn. I
asked the lieutenant in charge to
turn back but he would not listen.
"Why, man," he said, "that ship
will sink in two minutes and as it is
we are likely to be drawn into the
I knew it was of no use to argue
further with him so I threw off my
coat, grabbed an oar from the man
nearest me, to keep me afloat and
With some diiiiculty I reached the
ship. I could hear the water rushing
into the ship's hold and I knew that
as soon as the water reached the en-
gine room, the boilers would explode.
I worked around the side of the shin
to a rope ladder and climbed to the
deck. I called for Jack but all I could
hear was a low whine from the en-
gine room. It was a very dangerous
undertaking but I ran to the lower
deck and tugged at the engine room
door. As it opened a cloud of hot
wafer and steam rushed out. One
boiler had exploded! Afrain I called
for Jack. This time I could hear him
more plainly. I climbed over a coal
bunk and here he was trying to get
Through one of the port holes. I
caught him up and made my way to
the upper deck. Here I saw an old
keg with a rope around it. I tied it
to my body, and, with Jack under my
arm, slowly descended to the water.
By sitting on the keg and holding
Jack in my arms I managed to keep
afioat till morning, when, weary and
exhausted, we were picked up by one
of the life boats.

if OW that our record of the events of this year is
about completed, we are not forgetting the ufirstn
fi graduating class of our Fairview High. It seems
only a few days ago since they were enjoying High School
life with us, and yet a year has passed and soon we shall
be classed as Alumni with them.
The members of the first graduating class, ltnown as the
Shurtleff Class, have each gone on his or her separate way
this year, but we lmow they have not forgotten their Alma
Mater, so we give them worthy mention.
William Knode may be found today as an Engineering
student in West Virginia Universitv.
Margaret Chalfant is also a student in W. V. u. and is
malcing a good showing in the department of Music.

THE TRIP TO SALEM
pkg HEY were all on time leaving
Fairview except "Zeke" and
tlivj "Dunky" who were late as
ll il'l Ct usual. "Zeke" was delayed
by that laborious and painful opera-
tion of removing from his upper lip
an imperceptible quantity of eider
down. "Dunky" couldn't go because
"Zeke" had his ticket anl also he had
promised "Dunky's" mother to look
after him. However, displaying an
extra splurge of speed, the two reach-
ed Fairmont on the four o'c1ock car
and joined the rest of the fellows
who were anxiously awaiting their
belated arrival. The trip on to
Clarksburg was uneventful except
that Trace and Gay wouldn't ride in
the car with the "bunch" because
there were no girls in it. Their suc-
cess in Cupid's line, as far as can be
ascertained, was as naught because
of their extreme youthly appearance.
But when the team reached Clarks-
purg! It was there that all made a
grand rush for a restaurant with a
swiftness unequaled by Mercury.
Upon arrival at said restaurant, each
began to order porterhouse steaks,
pork chops, mutton chops, veal cut-
lets, and in fact most everything on
the "programme," "Piggy's" supper
cost one dollar but we got it for sev-
enty five cents being as he was a boy.
The George, displaying the skill of a
modern Shylock, succeeded in getting
his supper reduced from eighty tive
cents down to sixty eight. Just then
the train came and the rest of the
fellows had to pay full amount since
there was no time to argue. Upon
reaching Salem, Pluvius met us at
the station and showered us with
torrents of rain. After much wad-
ing we reached the gym, which, by
the way, is a nice one because it re-
sembles our own, and it was here
that we trimmed Salem. The game
was a good one, but the reception the
High School gave us after the game
was much better. It was here that
the Fairview boys Hblossornes forth."
Gay wanted to play "circus" with all
the girls. "Zeke" got mad at "Pro-
fessor" Tennant because the latter
wouldn't reciprocate. Ben was bash-
ful and Tom said that his mother
wouldn't allow him to go with the
girls. George couldn't be found but
afterwards it was learned that he
was out on the steps talking to one
of Salem's "fair sex." "Piggy" went
to sleep but when the refreshments
were served he dislodged himself
from the arms of Morpheus and was,
right on hand. After being served
to a very sumptious repast, the very
successful party came to a close.
The next morning, however, found
much consternation in the camps of
the Fairviewites on account of the
sudden and mysterious disappear-
ance of an umbrella which belonged
to one of the party. Diligent search-
es were made and all strangers were
closely questioned as to their per-
sonal belongings. After a consider-
able elapse of time, said umbrella put
in its appearance only to disappear
again on the return trip home. After

of the stairs and conducted me to her

As I was saying lstill sounds like
Miss Sheets but it haintl Miss Lea-
man took me to her room where we
chatted together most pleasantly :for
an half hour. Miss Leaman did most
of the talking and so gave me a pic-
ture of her. She talked of her work,
her plans, her aims for her pupils-
and then I "saw" Miss Leaman. I
consider Miss Clara Jeanette Lea-
man a really fine teacher. She pos-
sesses the very qualities that we less
enterprising individuals admire. She
has thoroughness and exactitude
backed by efficiency and carefulness
of logical detail. She is admired by
her students even though they can't
"bluff" her. She is interested in each
of her students personally and has
the welfare of Fairview High School
at heart to an unusual degree. As
English teacher, she has given her
students a vast amount of the cul-
tural this year. Her two years work
here at Fairview have been most ef-
Across the hallway lives another
one of Fairview's efiicient teachers.
She is called Miss Goldie Dale Sheets.
Miss Sheets teaches Latin and Ger-
man and many are the tales of the
valiant efforts on the part of the stu-
dents to master these languages.
Miss Sheets is blessed with a sense
of humor and can drive dull care
away from all of us. She came to
Fairview when the present school
year was just a week old and We all
liked her from the very start. You
know she did the clog dance one night
at a school party! QI'm afraid she
can't do that any more since she
sprained her ankle.J
Miss Sheets possesses the ability
of telling an experience interesting-
ly and entertainingly. The day I
called she told me of her trip to Cal-
ifornia last year. She also showed me
several kodak pictures.
Both, Miss Leaman and Miss
Sheets came down the street with me
for they eat at Johnnie Burns' hotel.
And mercy! I forgot to leave my
cards! CThat sounds like Miss
Sheets also, don't it? but it aint.J

THE TRIP TO THE STATE TOURNAMENT
G .cc- y S usual someone had to miss
jf ,Q the car. This time it was
'iff Q Trace and "Curly." All the
T' QT ' rest left on the six o'clock
car, bewailing the fate of the two
who overslept. We left Fairmont at
7.30, and, with the exception of a
"wild goose" chase up to Century, W.
Va., arrived in Buckhannon at 12.30
where we were met by all the "royal-
ty" of that charming little city. Some
of the boys took a taxi because they
thought that they could a-Ford it.
The rest of us walked. However, the
important part is that we all reach-
ed the place where we were to stay.
After dinner, which was a big one,
all went to bed but "Goose" who
went to look for his girl. We slept
until supper, after which we all walk-
ed to the college gym where we were
to play our first game against Buck-
hannon High, same being the team
which we drew in the casting of the
lots. Some game! Fairview was
there with the "stuff," The first half
ended 7 to 6 in favor of Buckhannon.
Pandemonium reigned in the camp of
the Buckhannonites and many con-
jectures were made as to the out-
come of the game. Both teams came
back strong in the second half, but
the caging of three goals from the
middle of the floor by Buckhannon
gave them a lead which Fairview
could not overcome although the
boys played hard and fast. The game
ended in favor of Buckhannon by
score of 22 to 9. This eliminated
Fairview from the tournament, since
we were not lucky on the "draw-in,"
and all the boys had to do was watch
the various other teams play and en-
joy the hospitality of Wesleyan Col-
lege, whose guests we were. Too
much cannot be said of the good time
shown us and of the manner in which
we were treated by both the students
of the college and the people of the
town. The good time ended all too
soon and reluctantly we left Buck-
hannon Sunday morning, March 12,
entertaining the hope that we might
be the recipient of Wesleyan's hos-
pitality again next year.

Hubert Nash Ward who is really the
subject of this sketch, was born in
the very early part of his existence
and at a very tender age fhis age is
still tenderl. After sundry efforts
on the part of those interested to get
an education for the above mention-
ed Hubert N., he was sent to West
Virginia Wesleyan. While there he
conducted himself in a most "studi-
ously" way and graduated with
honors in the year 1913 A. D. not B.
C. While at Wesleyan he proved
himself to be an athlete of champion-
j gj might just as Well say in the
very beginning that it is-be-

anybody says "Farmer," why that's
Reynolds also. Coach Reynolds-
dot's heem too. Perfesser Reynolds?
yah, dey's all heem. About the
school it is Mr. Reynolds-Reynolds
mit out de sneeze.
This paper will serve to introduce
to you Mr. Reynolds as the principal
ship caliber and he hasn't "forgot
how" since. 4
Ward came to Fairview at the be-
ginning of the second semester of
the present school year to take
charge of the work in mathematics
and as athletic coach. In both de-
partments he has proved to be a mas-
ter. He has taught math in such a
manner as to make his students "get
it." He has coached the boys on the
gym fioor in such a Way that they
gave him their very best in the way
of strength and endeavor.
If one should ask the secret of Mr.
Ward's success, coming, as he did, a
stranger and succeeding so well this
article would answer, "Mr. Ward is
the reason." Knowing how to do the
things he attempted to do,
the interests of the school his inter-
ests, getting close to the people with
whom he works, learning their likes
and dislikes, and, in the finality of
things, being an altogether likeable
results in success.
This article closes by saying that
"Goose," alias H. N. Ward, a popular
and capable chap, lives down at
Johnnie's, room No. 12.
of the Fairview High School. Coming
into this ofiice at the middle of the
school year, the school finds that it
has on its hands a first class principal.
Always possessed with business abil-
ity, the new position finds Mr. Rey-
nolds with school ability, handling
the situation like "one to the manor
born." Before being principal of our
school, Mr. Reynolds Was Fairview
High School's careful and efficient
science teacher, specializing in agri-
culture. He came to Fairview with
the idea of making his department
modern in every respect and since
his coming that has been his para-
mount aim. To his new duties he has
carried this same painstaking appli-
cation. As principal of the school,

EIGHTH GRADE BASKET BALL TEAM
The Eighth Grade Basket Ball Team was organized early in the season
a number of games with local teams and teams of nearby towns. Dur-
ing the season they lost only one game to an eighth grade team, that
being the Fleming School of Fairmont, winning from them at home
and losing at Fairmont. They challanged this team to play the decid-
ing game, either here or at Fairmont, which challenge Was not accepted.
Much of the success of the team goes to Coach "Curly" Lough, for
whose consistent coaching each member of the class is grateful.

The Need of a Business
Never in the history of civilization has there been a greater premium on well-trained
minds than at the present time. Never were business enterprises conducted on a
greater scale or has more skilled management been required.
The young man or woman seeking employment must be able to do the work required
by this exacting age or give way to those who can.
Business men have neither the time or the inclination to instruct their employees in
duties which a good business education would qualify them to discharge. They seek
and appreciate the help that come to them thoroughly prepared to do the Work re-
quired of them. We know the requirements of the business World. We have the
fa cilities for supplying what the business World demands.
Our course of study is moderng our teachers are earnest, zealous and practicalg our
appointments first-class, and our facilities for placing graduates in positions un-
Pnepare yourself for big things. Resolve to get out of the rut of the ordinary un-
trained man. VVrite us today for full information.

SONNET TO FAIRVIEW HIGH
To Fairview High, I will forteII
Just what I feeI at my farewell,
For where my wandering steps shaII tend
And when my earthIy course shall end,
The thought of that surviving tie, '
To me, my I-Iigh SchooI shaII Iae nigh,
And then I'll cast a backward view
On you, my friend, so kind and true.
Then as I Ieave thy sheltering breast
To seek my mark in east or west,
A sadness in my mind does dweII
Of which no mortal tongue can teII,
And of my ever-sadning Ieave
This gloomy parting Iong will cleave.
