MARY MATILDA WHITLATCH
This year, we the Seniors of '44, dedicate to one who has always worked
unceasingly for the benefit, not only of the school, but also the students.
Miss Whitlatch has taught at Farmington High School for several years and
during that time, has never ceased to keep dramatic activities circulating.
She has constantly Worked for the sole advancement of her Alma Mater and
has never failed to give guidance or help Whenever needed.
Her personality, love, friendship and patience with us, her class, will
always be remembered wherever We may be called to serve.
TO THGSE WHO HAVE GIVEN
CAPTAIN GRAFTON SAMUEL STIDGER -
fKilled in Actionj
Sam, a graduate of .Farmington High School in the class of 1937, enlisted in the
Marine Air Corps in 1941 and was later sent to the South Pacific Theatre of War
where he served as a Marine Fighter Pilot. It was here that he gave his life on Janu-
ary 14, 19.44. He was awarded the Purple Heart for injuries and later, the Air Medal,
posthumously, for exceptionally meritorious achievement.
"Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." To
lay down one's life for friends, for humanity, for country, for a principle of truth-
that is a glorious thing.
You, Sam, whose memory we honor, freely gave ,your life as a sacrifice on the altar
of love. It seems a cruel sacrifice, and our hearts are wrung with anguish at the need-
less waste of this fine lifeg but, time will dim the sorrow and leave only the memory
of your bravery, your idealism, and your willing sacrifice that the cause of right might
prevail. Truly, no man hath greater love than this.
We revere your noble acts, we cherish your memory, and pray that your sacrifice,
and that of our other brave and courageous men will not have been made in vain.
NOTE: Mr. Malcolm, author of this tribute, is a former teacher and a graduate of
Farmington High School, class of 1924.

serve as the core of the organization. The teachers of our school have coop-
erated with the principal and formed a complete unit to serve as the guide

patience with the students. They have endeavored to preserve this land-
"Our Land of Liberty"-by teaching the students to be better future citi-
zens of America.

"WE CAN, BECAUSE WE THINK WE CAN," is the motto of the seniors
of '44. We began to clear our way to success in 1940, when we enrolled as
one hundred and six members of the Farmington High School student body.
We are now graduating with fifty-three.
Our advisor, Miss Matilda Whitlatch, with the cooperation of our fellow
students, has made it possible for us to always remember the happy days of
our high school years.
When Miss Whitlatch was elected our advisor, the following were elected
oiiicers: President, Mary Catherine Bockg Vice-President, Ralph Hess, Sec-
retary and Treasurer, Anna Lou Griffithg Historian, Mildred Naumik. We
selected the Gardenia as our class flower, and the colors, green and white.

our gratitude to Mr. Cotrel and members of the faculty for their patience"xK'ir..QA
While helping us, and the encouragement We received from them when things ""'.- '
seemed useless and dull.
Now as the Way to success is a little brighter, We shall attempt to progress
toward our "greatest height," and We shall, for, "WE CAN, BECAUSE WE
THINK WE CAN."

In 1941, as Freshmen, with the total enrollment of 103, We adopted as our
motto, "We Build the Ladder on Which We Climb."
Since then the builders and climbers have decreased in number, until at
present we have only 46 members in the Junior class. Despite this decrease,
the individuals of the class and the Junior class as a Whole have succeeded in
accomplishing quite a large amount of building and climbing.
Several members of the class have earned recognition for their outstanding
abilities. In athletics, Johnny Guss and John Levitsky were on the all-county
football team and Steve Korsh was given honorable mention. John Levitsky
has since climbed into the ranks of the Army. In music, Dolores Bock and
Phil Murray have gained recognition as talented singers. Lena Pasko has
served as one of the cheerleaders for the school. In a state-Wide essay con-
test, sponsored by the Sons of the Revolution, Irene Vargo and Wade Hartzel
won first and second prizes, respectively. James Manchin wrote and directed
"My Land of Liberty," which was presented for the class assembly program
and also at Barrackville High School.
The Junior Class has presented two assembly programs, and sponsored a
student mix and several dances this year.
"We Build the Ladder on Which We Climb" presents even a greater chal-
lenge for next year.

Clubs are formed to provide entertainment and a pleasant pastime for their
members. Many of the participants join in the parties and other activities
they offer. Pleasant Work like this, teaches one to Work harmoniously with
classmates, and to make new acquaintances. A club may also be educational,
as the knowledge gained by additional or voluntary study of some particular
subject may change an attitude or an idea.
So may this type of pleasant Work help us to appreciate the ideas of others
-the freedom and opportunities of youth in a land of liberty.
The Farmington High School Troupe No. 435 of the National Thespian has
resumed its role as the leading organization of the campus. It has continued
to grow through the year and at the present time it proudly boasts of a large
group of dramatically-minded young high school students.
The troupe has made several tours, one to Mannington High School and
three in connection with a local lodge. During this time they were highly
feted and entertained. .
The annual initiation was held on March 14, 1944. Mannington High
School Thespian Troupe, under the direction of Miss Edis Lazear, gave the
ritualistic Work by candlelight. It was an impressive ceremony. Twelve new
members were admitted to the troupe. If time permits, another Thespian
production may be attempted before the close of the year. "Ever Onward" is
the theme of National Thespian. With the completion of the Junior Class
Play, we expect many others to be eligible for membership.

The Press Club was organized in 1931 by Miss Robinson, for the purpose
of publishing a school paper, and is still under her supervision. The first three
years, the paper was printed by the duplication process, but later a mimeo-
graph and mimeoscope were purchased, thus enabling the club to publish the
paper with greater ease. Until the last two years, it has been a very active
organization, keeping itself in supplies and always having a small amount of
money on hand.
With the rationing of gasoline and the shortage of tires, it has been almost
impossible to have parties and other activities this year. Although the mem-
bers are widely scattered, the club has grown until at present, it has a mem-
bership of seventeen. When peace, again, has descended on the world, may
this club and its members climb to a greater height and publish a better paper.

The Click Club of Farmington High Was organized in the fall of 1942 by
Mr. Bodola, a member of the faculty. The primary purpose of the club is to
stimulate interest in photography and to enable its members to develop the
pictures they take with the View of making better and more interesting
The club has not progressed as rapidly as it should have, due to the lack
of facilities in equipment and to our inability at the present time to get the
films We need.
If sufficient interest is taken in this club by the students, in the future
it may develop many outlets, some of which may become vocations and
some merely hobbies.
President ............. ..2 ...,.................. -
The Girls' Athletic Association, under the capable direction of Miss Mary
Manley, the physical education instruction, has made great progress this
year. We have participated in all sports and activities and have organized a
Girls' Basketball Team which has been credited with winning all but one
game. We lost this game to East Fairmont by seven points.
The purpose of this club is to promote better sportsmanship among the
students. To become a member you must have average grades and you are
then voted into the club. Actual membership is yours after you have been
informally initiated. .
The G.A.A. sponsored the class tournaments this year, the Senior Girls
and Junior Boys Winning the championships. We are planning the annual
party to honor our basketball and football boys. -
Every year there are old members leaving and new ones coming in. We,
hope to develop, in the future, a bigger and better G.A.A. .-

The girls of the senior high school are organized into a singing group
known as Girls' Choral Club. The club functions under the leadership of Anna
Lou Griffith, President. The colors chosen are lavender and Whiteg the flower,
laurel blossom, and the motto-"We sing because We love to sing."
The group toured to'Mannington High School and presented an excellent
chapel program of musical numbers.
The girls' quartette, composed of Mary Catherine Bock, Anna Lou Grifiith,
Mildred Naumik and Mary Louise Lough, with Dolores Bock as novelty
soloist, Martha Ann Pitzer, soprano soloist, and Bill Booth, tenor-aided
immensely in the fourth War loan drive by presenting musical programs at
the various theaters in Fairmont and outlying districts. In addition, the same
singing group entertained the Fairmont Lions' Club and were their dinner
guests at the Fairmont Hotel.
The Girls' Choral Club, with the assistance of the Boys' Glee Club, will
present the operetta, "An Old Fashioned Charm," early in May.
All girls who are interested in singing are asked to join the club with or

A school would not be complete without sports-this provides an absorp-
tion of excess energy, builds bodies and strengthens the mind. Life is full of
sportsmanship. A good winner is one who can take a loss With an undaunted
spirit, and with a will to do better the next time.
The American Way of sportsmanship, and the Way American children are
taught to "do unto others, as you would have done unto you," is the reason
for our excellent defense, cooperation, good spirit, and Winning qualities
since the day of the "Mayf1oWer".
The football season for '43 was completed 'With the Farmers winning six
games out of eight., Our team totaled 120 points at the close of the season,
our opponents 45.
Our schedule was somewhat hampered by the war and we had a little
trouble getting transportation for the team. Of all games played, the one
with Elkins proved to be the best. All of our boys really showed their stuff.
This is another successful season to be added to the credit of Farmington
High School and our coach, "Cassy Ryan." May there be many more of them.
Captain ERNEST BAKER, Guard:
Captain Baker was one of the best
guards we have ever had. He re-
ceived honorable mention for all-
state. With another year's experi-
ence, he would make all-state with-
out a doubt. Being a senior, he will
undoubtedly land in some phase of
the service. After the war he ex-
pects to take up football again, with
the hope of being a coach. Baker's
best game was at Elkins.
STEVE KORSH, Center:
This is Steve's second year in this
position which proved to be twice as
good as his first. We expect him to
make all-county next year. He
played good oiensive and defensive
ball all through the sason.
JOHN LIVITSKY, Haifbackz '
John was one of the best running
backs in the country. He was a hard
hitting, swift running lad who de-
serves a lot of credit for the ground
gained by his rushing. He was a
junior this year, but is now serving
in the United States Army Para-
JOHN SOPUCH, Halfback:
Sopuch was the passer for this
year's team, and he did an excellent
job. He was quick on his feet and
aimed his passes well. Being only a
sophomore this year means we can
count on him for the next.
STEVE HORVATH, Guard:
Steve started out early in his foot-
ball career. He is only a sophomore
but played as a regular this season.
We are expecting more of him in his
next two years. He was in the back-
fields of the other teams more than
his own. His best game was also
JOHN PHILLIPS, Quarterback:
Phillips, a freshman, gave the op-
ponents a lot of competition in all
of the games played. His best was
with Elkins. Being a little "tuffy",
he could really take that ball
through. If Phillips is as good as all
this, and he is, wonder what he will
do in the next three years ? He really
has the necessary qualifications.
JOHN MCDOWELL, Fullback:
This was J ohn's first year as a
regular, but he proved himself cap-
able for the position as fullback. He
Was a hard-driving backer and when
he graduates this year his post will
be hard to iill.
,GEORGE TOOTHMAN, Guard:
George was a regular guard, but
was taken into the Navy shortly
after his first game. George was
rugged and would have played a
good season. He is now in the South
Frank, a substitute, earned his
letter this year and should make the
team next year. He played Well and
We are expecting him to make a val-
JOHNNY CUSS, End:
. Johnny, a junior this year, has
had three years' experience playing
football with Farmington. He be-
gan his football career in his fresh-
man year and made the first team.
Although he is improving every
year we expect more of him in the
future. He has played his position
well and will probably be captain
next year. We wish him luck. His
best game was with West Fairmont.
BILL COMPTON, Tackle :
Compton just came to our school
this year. He went out for football
and landed the position as tackle.
He helped the team a great deal and
would have been hard to replace.
Compton was liked by the squad,
and although he has moved away,
we will remember him as a "great

MIKE TON KOVICH, End:
Mike is a sophomore this year and
will have two more years in which
he can improve. He gave the teams
a lot of opposition.
HOMER ORR, Tackle:
This was Homer's first year as a
regular and he proved to take his
position as a life time job. He would
rank with any tackle in the county.
He saw a great deal of action. He
was hurt in the West Fairmont
game, but was back in the next
game giving them plenty of trouble.
Orr will be lost from the team next
year, but he won't be forgotten. His
best game was against Barrackville.
Page forty seven
The Ryanmen had a good season this year. In spite of tough opposition all
along,-,we came out winning 10, losing 6. Of the first live players, only three
will be back next year. The others will be graduated.
Captain HARRY ALASKY, Center:
Harry will graduate this year,
after being a regular on the team
for three years. Due to injuries in
his sophomore year he was unable
to be a four year man. He is an ex-
ceptionally good shooting lad. He
also plays good floor ball. He is the
high point man of the team this
year, having made 245 points.
JOHN SOPUCH, Forward:
John left us after the Barrack-
ville game this year. He was one of
the best forwards that Mr. Ryan
ever put out. A goodpasser, floor
player and a good shooting forward.
His scoring for the part of the year
he played was 66 points. .
JACK TALKINGTON, Guard:
Jack, only a junior, has played a
regular position on the team this
year. This is his first year, but much
more is expected next year. He is
an excellent passer, a good floor
player, and also a good shot. His
scoring for the season is 57 points.
JOE PARRISH, Forward:
Joe, a sophomore, has seen con-
siderable action as a reserve, always
playing good ball when he was
needed most. Joe is expected to do
much more in the near future. He
has scored 23 points this season.
JOE CRAIG, Guard:
Joe is a senior this year. He has
seen a considerable amount of ac-
tion in his senior year. This is his
:first year as a member of the squad.
He has scored 5 points this year.
PETE ALASKY, Forward :
Pete, a sophomore, will be back
with us next year. This is his first
year as a regular. He is a good pass-
er, and a good shooting forward.
There is a great deal expected of him
next year. His scoring for the sea-
son is 91 points.
JOHN GUSS, Forward:
John is the only Junior forward
that will return next year. He has
been playing good ball this season.
Although John wasn't a regular at
the first of the season he has been a
good dependable boy. He was a good
passer and a good shooting forward.
His scoring is 58 points.
BUSTER HELMICH, Guard:
Helmich also a sophomore is a
veteran of the United States Ma-
rine Corps. He received a medical
discharge and returned to school.
He played good ball this season and
is expected to do better next year.
He is a good passer and floor player.
His scoring for the season is 30
NICK SABAN, Center:
Nick is a sophomore and has seen
a considerable amount of action this
year. Much more is expected of him
next year. This is his first year with
the team. He has scored 10 points.
DAN STEELE, Forward:
Dan, also a senior, has played
where and when he was most
needed. He was a good dependable
player and also a good shot. His
scoring is 10 points this season.
