We, the Pau' Part' Staff, have labored to make this yearbook something
which you will cherish in the future. In addition to recording our happenings
in the past year of school we have tried to show you something of the industries
which have been, and yet are playing a great part in our lives.
Witllout the coal, oil, and gas industries located in this vicinity we probably
would not have our conlnlunities of Grant Town and Fairview and our line
high school. The school cannot divorce itself from the business and social life
of the communities in which it is located, for we are a part of them.

HISTORY OF THE SENIOR -CLASS OF '47
Four year ago last September school was
again assembled at Fairview High School with
fifty-nine new faces. How happy all we fresh-
men were! VVe didn't mind being called
"freshies" by the upper-classmen because we
knew they had all gone through the same thing.
The first day we met our class sponsors, Mrs.
Mary Ann Muir and Miss Phoebe Louise
Our freshman class officers were: president,
Ross Marukag vice-president, Roy Tuttle, and
secretary-treasurer, Arthur Puskas. Rachel
Eddy and Eugene Paugh were selected as stu-

and white as our class colors with the violet as
our flower g and "Great oaks from little acorns
grow" as our motto.

The P. T. A. as well as the home room mothers met once each month and discussed problems
that arose in school and attempted to help in school affairs.
At the beginning of the school year each of the various home rooms elected a home room mother.
These mothers formed a club and elected as chairman, Mrs. Grace Warner.
In September the organization held a reception for the teachers. At the October meeting Mr.
Glenn A. Keister, assistant superintendent of schools, and Dr. David K. Allen, pastor of the Presby-
terian Church, Fairmont, were the speakers. They explained the proposed educational amendment
to the state constitution to be voted on in the November election.
At the December meeting a Christmas program was presented by the Fairview Won1an's Club.
The home room mothers assisted with the Christmas parties in both the grade and high school.
In January slides of different school buildings throughout the county that were in need of re-
pairs were shown. Mr. E. C. Witliers, a member of the Marion County Education Council, explained
the slides and spoke on the school levy election. '

TIPPLE, KOPPERS FEDERAL NO. 1 COAL MINE
Thr 1947 Paw Paw
KOPPERS FEDERAL NO. l MINE
Federal No. l mine, located in our neighboring conununity of Grant Town, is
the largest mine in Northern West Virginia and produces more coal than any of
the other 24 mines operated by lfastern Gas and Fuel Associates, Koppers Coal
Division, in West Virginia, Kentucky and Pennsylvania.
Daily production capacity is 8,000 tons, enough to till l60 railroad coal cars. This
high volatile bituminous coal comes from the famous Pittsburgh seam which extends
from Maryland, through Western Pennsylvania into the eastern edge of Ohio. lt
is the most valuable mineral deposit in the world, including the diamond mines of
There is great demand for this coal to produce steam power for many types of
industries, to generate electric energy in numerous United States cities, and to power
the principal railroads of the nation. It provides the steam that drives ships around
the world and is shipped abroad for use in many foreign countries.
The mine has been operated for many years and extends six miles under ground.
Another century will be with us before its supplies are exhausted.
Federal No. 1 is known as a shaft mine since the coal is reached by descending
a 258 foot elevator shaft. The seam is about eight feet thick. This is considered
high coal in a bituminous mine since seams frequently are as thin as 36 inches.
Not all of the eight-foot vein is mined. liighteen inches are left under the roof
rock as a safety factor. This prevents air from getting to the roof and weakening it
by slacking the rock.
The mine roof is sound and high and there are no steep grades. These and other
favorable conditions of safety and convenience make this one of the best mines in
which to work.
This is a modern mine in that it is fully mechanized. Machines do the heavy
work which once was done by a minerls brawn with pick and shovel. Machines cut
the coal in the seam, load it into six-ton electric trucks which carry it to the under-
ground "loading heads" to be transferred by elevator to mine cars. These go to the
preparation plant above ground where the coal is mechanically sized and loaded into
railroad cars. As many as six sizes are loaded at one time, each in a different car,
and at the rate of 700 tons an hour.

DERRICK NEAR FAIRVIEW
Thr 1047 Paw Pau
Eiarly History of Fairview's Oil and Gas
According to Paul H. Price, state geologist, the Mannington-Fairview area is
historically one of the most important in the state from the point 'of view of oil and
gas development. The discovery well of the Mannington oil Held, which is in reality
a continuation of the Mt. Morris-Fairview field, was located by Dr. I. C. White
and established the validity of his anticlinal theory of oil and gas accumulation.
It was during the spring of 1889 that five men, Col. C. L. Smith, Dr. I. C. White,
T. M. Jackson, Major A. L. Prichard, and A. VV. Prichard, composed a company
called the jackson Oil Company, and entered a contract to drill a test well with
Mr. A. Montgomery. -
After considerable thought, drilling was begun on the test well, located on the
D. F. Hamilton farm, July 22, 1889. The well was drilled on November 11, at a
depth of 1,925 feet, within a few feet of the bottom of the 'tBig Injun" sand.
According to Dr. White, the Mannington oil discovery in 1891 had a great
effect. Since the test well was drilled, about 200 others have been sunk along the
belt between Mt. Morris anlfl Mannington and that has become one of the largest
and most valuable oil Fields in the country.
Following this production, a new company was formed under the name of the
Flaggy Meadow Oil and Gas Company. The next well drilled was on Salt Lick
Run, where Dr. White located it strictly for gas. Again this was a pioneer
After much trouble with the tools, the well came in and this was the first well
drilled for gas in the Mannington and Fairview district. The gas was piped and
sold to residents at very low rates. Prior to this, all boilers for drilling had been

have been sold to the Hope Natural Gas Company.
The following table furnished by the Hope Natural Gas Company shows some-
thing of the early history of the wells drilled in close proximity to Fairview I
