Floyd County High School, Floyd, J Behold We Stand at the Doors Many ideas, many forces influence students as they strive to achieve the goals they and others have set. These ideas and forces come to us as images of doors. As we stand before these doors of FCHS, we realize that we may have to rap many times. But as each door is opened, we become involved in scenes that shall never leave us: a lecturing teacher, a basketball game, a slow lunch line, the locker room hustle. These doors vary in size, shape, and color; but, more- over, in learning, knowing, and living. They are doors of black— colorless and opaque; and of gold— bright and sunny. They are doors like none we have seen in the past, and different from those we shall see in the future. Each door has a special meaning to us. Be it the time we walked out of class with an F on a test, or the time we first walked into school as an upperclassman, each time we enter upon or walk from a threshold, something significant happens to make a mark in our lives. These are the doors of our school— some we can see and touch and some we can only visualize. We follow students from door to door and find doors of buses, lockers, classrooms, the gym, the cafeteria, the locker room. And too, we find these to be doors of why, when, and how. The doors of our school— some we open many times, others we open just once, and some are beyond our reach. 2 and Knock Academics 11 Classes 33 Athletics 77 Student Life 101 Advertisements .155 3 - Many Dimensions of Human Expressions From 9 A.M. to 3 P. M. , six periods a day, young learners at FCHS become involved in academic work, laughter, and the unexpected. The vitality of a student ' s world comes alive with such scenes as the torrid action of an Elizabethan drama, the inescapable battle to reach class on time, the longed-for excused absence from class to do the thousand and one things that only students can think of, and finally at the end of a long, tedious day only the echo of footsteps remains. The halls are quiet and almost deserted at the end of another hectic school day. Future voters gain experience as they participate in mock state elections supervised by the government classes. The facial expressions of members of the Homecoming Court reveal that all is not well on the gridiron. The cheerleaders ' work is never done. Not only do they brighten the teams ' spirit, but also the dull gray of the goal posts. 4 Are Reflected by FCHS Students Duane Phillips looks with interest at the show case depicting the four freedoms, as prepared by the government classes.

In perfect formation, the award-winning FCHS band steps off for an- other football show. Warm-up drills are part of the pre-game strategy for basketball players. Disbelief, horror, and little joy are reflected in faces of bandsmen. Announcer Richard Nester grips the mike as tension mounts on the football field. 6 in Athletic Competition A patriotic salute to the flag, a trumpet fanfare, or a burst of applause by an anxious crowd greet FCHS athletes whether on the hardwood, the baseball diamond, the gridiron, ' the sand-trap, or the cinder-path. It takes a dedicated coach, long hours of practice, a desire to win, plus talent to produce a successful team. Even in disappointing defeat or glorious victory the FCHSer ' s are proud of their teams, the " Mighty Buffaloes. " A prospective varsity club member tries to escape the tyranny of initiation. The quietest moments of the night occur just before the game begins as the majorettes lead the crowd in saluting the flag.

Fad Pace-Setters Blending the old and new with just the right amount of taste and conformity, the FCHS student body maintains its reputation as a " real in " group. Eager to retain their individualism, yet equally eager to be accepted by their peers, the maturing students are successful in blend- ing the " latest things " with the conventional. Often with the passing of time, fads which combine necessity and style cease to be a novelty and either become a part of the past or a symbol of the present. From clothing to transportation to after school fun, these were the 1965-66 fads. . . pierced ears. . . monograms. . . 8 Stay " Up to the Minute” hair— the long and the short of it. . . empire line dresses. . . 9 Doors Open a nd Close on Many Worlds of FCHS Nine months of school? The idea was inconceivable as the 1965 school session began on a warm, hazy day in August. Two semester examinations, unexpected snow vacations, and school on Saturdays seemed to belong behind some big awesome door that only other people would open. But time passed: assignments were com- pleted, pages of textbooks were read and reread, and FCHS students and teachers accepted the reality that the doors being passed through daily were the doors to their world. Students pass through the doors of FCHS on their home- ward way The patience of FCHS teachers in explaining materia results in a good teacher-student relationship. The door is open to all as students gather around the piano for a few re- laxing moments. 10 Long parades and football shows on cold nights make standing at attention difficult for Drum Major Gus Howell. Academics Be it the opening and closing of a classroom door, a textbook, or a school bus door, the aim is the same: the acquisition of knowledge. A school is judged by the students who pass through its doors: the students who can ' t stop asking questions because they are eager to learn both the what and why, and those who remain silent pondering all that has been said. Teachers are a vital part of the learning process as they open and attempt to push wide the doors of learning so that the minds of their students will possess the keys for opening the doors of the future. 11 New Programs Initiated by It Mr. Alonzo A. Monday, Jr. is serving his fifth year as Superintendent of Floyd County Schools. 1965-66 was a year for the Floyd County School Board to open new doors for themselves and the students of Floyd County. In September with the renovation of the old Harris Hart School complete, the School Board and all county school officials opened the doors to their new offices. Determined that the studentsof Floyd County would have the best possible education, the Board initiated several new programs. Early in the year, it was decided that Floyd County would join the educational television company being formed by surrounding counties and to continue the neighborhood youth corps, a federally sponsored program. Mrs. Ruby West, Administrative Supervisor; Mrs. Sally Dalton, NYC Director; Mrs. Dorothy Casteel, Supervisor of English; Mrs. Virgie Weeks, Secretary to Superintendent. i a School Board: Mr. Benton Alderman, Mr. Monday, Su- perintendent; Mr. B. P. Simpson, Vice-Chairman; Mr. Marvin Cole, Mr. Gerald Phillips, Mr. R. O. Slusher, 12 Mrs. Mildred Thompson, Clerk of the Board; and Mr. Rex Nixon. Progressive Administration In the suite of rooms known as " the office, " the decisions are made which keep FCHS running smoothly. Here the principal, Mr. Hollandsworth, takes action on matters concerning the economics of the school. It is his job to keep in order the profits of clubs, classes and school-wide projects and to supervise their spending. He also decides the policy of the school on matters of outside activities and guides the faculty in student-teacher relations. To Mr. Houston, assistant principal, falls the job of disciplinary measures. However, his duti es are not limited to this, for he generally as- sists Mr. Hollandsworth in all areas of school administration. Mr. Ray Hollandsworth, in his fourth year as Principal of FCHS, received both his B.S. and M.S. from VPI. Mr. John M. Houston, a former classroom teacher, is serving his first year as Assistant Principal and Director of Athletics. 1 j| y l ' il m Whether it be lenders of cellophane tape, finders of lost and receptionist Mrs. Lorice O ' Conner and secretary Mrs. books, or answerers of innumerable questions, bookkeeper Iris Poff are always ready and anxious to be of service. 13 Click! And Teachers The bond between students and teachers is a personal bond. In the class- room, teachers learn the capabilities and desires of a student perhaps better than the student knows them himself. Because of an interest shown, a desire to make each student understand, and the shared laughter over a mistake, the students know that a teacher ' s desire to give the benefit of knowledge and maturity is genuine. For this reason, the teachers are pictured here candidly— as each student knows them. The other side of the teacher-image is shown. Caught in their off-guard, but often well-known poses, the Bison proves that teachers, too, are human. Discipline is never an easy job, but some days it is worse than others. Mr. Houston finds refuge in a vacant room. Sponsoring a club is not always easy as Mr. Thomas, Science Club Sponsor, realizes on club initiation day. 14 Though praise or an unpleasant truth, students always listen to Mr. Hollandsworth ' s announcements. Are Caught in Unguarded Moments Husbands and wives who teach at FCHS share many ex- periences; thus Mrs. Harman ' s lament, " I wish I had a mailbox of my own. " What more can be said? Coach Martin ' s face says it all! After 6 or 7 names had been drawn and not one of them had sold a magazine, Mr. Corron and Mr. Houston wonder how the goal was ever reached. During homeroom period, Mr. Harman relaxes and entertains his students with stories about " Back when I got my first car... " Mr. Harman, an avid new car fan, always has an attentive audience. 15 MRS. LOIS Y.

In addition, doors are opened and characters tumble forth from all literary forms. Eighth graders meet a lovelorn Evangeline , while freshmen follow Pip along the bumpy road toward Great Expectations . Softhearted sophomores sympathize with Silas Mamer as diligent juniors analyze the complicated essays and poems of American authors. Finally, weary seniors attempt to relate the qualities in the tragedy Macbeth to contemporary persons. The English de- partment also offers elective courses in speech and journalism. Regardless of the course or the grade level, stress is placed on learning to express oneself, especially in written form. A bound edition of previous issues of the County Crier allows students a glimpse into FCHS ' s past. 16 Students Find English an Every Year Subject Words such as footnotes, subscripts, bibliography, and Ibid ; become part of seniors ' vocabulary as they research a topic for English class.

RORRER B.S., Radford College Math I II; Biology SCA Co-Sponsor " 1+1-2” Common Phrase Seld om Mr. Ray Corron, the newest member and the only man in the math department, explains to his Algebra II students the process of factoring higher degree equations. The number of mathematics courses atFCHS continues to increase each year. In addition to the five usual math courses - Math I, Math II, plane and solid geometry, Algebra I, and Algebra II and trigo- nometry - a course of advanced math is being offered to students in grades eleven and twelve. This advanced course deals with the higher maths of trigonometry, calculus, and analysis. Whether it be in the new experimental advanced math or in the tried and tested Math I, all mathematics classes have a fresh approach. Mere acceptance of an equation-even a simple one such as 2+2=4 - is not enough. Students must be able to prove it. Only two years of mathematics are required for graduation. How- ever, realizing the practical value of these courses, most students at FCHS take at least three years of math. 18 Advanced Math students find that a simple sine curve can often behave rather oddly.

The tiny world of the microscope, dissection of a frog or worm, a detailed illus- tration in a textbook— these are ways in which students study biology. Young Scientists Struggle with Frogs and formaldehyde, location of bones in the human torso, balancing of complex equations, the study of electricity— these typify the science courses offered at FCHS. General science and biology are required courses; anatomy, chemistry, and physics are electives. Perhaps there is no other field which continues to grow as much and in which as many advancements are made as in science. For this reason, there is a challenge for all young people to discover something new. With the finest equipment available students are challenged to prove for themselves what they have been told and to experiment with what they believe to be true. In chemistry students learn to handle complicated formu- las and to determine the way in which certain chemicals will react when combined. 20 MRS. EVA B.

" Impossi- ble, " is the reply of Mr. Campbell ' s four classes who rely heavily on maps. In the study of U.S. History, students are made acutely aware of the interrelation of the Old Dominion ' s early history with that of the nation as a whole. the Wide, Wide World in 180 Days In the fields of domestic and foreign affairs, history stu- dents are urged to form sound flexible opinions. Panel discussions permit examination of world problems. History is a process that never, never stops. Countries are created and populated. They quickly become involved in problems of elections, laws, imports and exports, finances, food, trouble spots, land useage, scientific and social advancements, and the involvement goes on and on. Courses in government, U.S. and Virginia History, world history, geography, and civics— the social sciences— attempt to reveal the successes and failures of the past. Thus, students are able to gain a new awareness and a deeper ap- preciation of the world around them. Students are urged to realize that history doesn ' t consist solely of dates and events of the past. Most of the social science courses stress current events and impress on students the necessity of equipping themselves for an active role in society as an adult. Classroom procedures include lectures, parallel readings, panel discus- sions, visual aids, and research papers. 23 MISS JUDY M.

This is the last year that only eighth and ninth graders will be taking physical education; beginning with the 1966-67 school term physical educa- tion will be a required subject for tenth graders. Physical education classes consist of gym three days a week and health two days a week. Boys and girls alternate in use of the gym. With the increased stress on physical fitness, a greater diversity in phys- ical education program has resulted. Health classes follow the usual course of study, with emphasis on understanding the various systems of the human body. Instead of the usual softball, baseball, basketball and volleyball, gym classes now includes tumbling, hockey, a rigid program of calisthenics, and square dancing. Damp red faces, aching muscles, cries of " I ' ll never dance the Virginia reel with her again, " and of course, those wonderful showers at the end of each gym class characterize this never-to-be-forgotten curriculum. 25 MR.

DEI consists solely of class work in preparation for a DE II job. Business courses are more than laying of ground work for future applica- tion. In typing, shorthand, general business, DE, economics, office practice, and bookkeeping classes, students make practical application of their knowl- edge as they learn it. Nimble fingers and quick thinking are important in typing and shorthand, but courses such as bookkeeping or general business, require patience and thorough thinking. The variety of courses which FCHS offers trains teen-agers in subjects which will in many cases qualify them for jobs in the business world immediately after graduation. Because they are learning to apply as they learn, because they see the results of their work before them in a neatly typed page of balanced columns of figures - students find business courses particularly gratifying. 27 Mrs, Mock ' s advanced choral class meets second period, and its enthusiasm and ded- ication to music is reflected in the sounds echoing through the halls. Jazz, Classics Echo From Music Department " Music is the universal language of mankind. " A clear soprano note, a willowy chorale from the clarinets, a jazzy trumpet solo or a vocal selection from South Pacific might transport FCHS ' s music students from the daily routine to a ballroom in Vienna, a hazy coffee house in New Orleans, or the pounding surf on a tropical beach. Be it the precision and perfection of a football show or the endless prac- ticing for a choral concert, each music student must learn to develop his talents to work in the group. From a fast moving march in band to a Christ- mas lullaby in choral class a director introduces the many worlds of music to his students. The concentration of these young drummers is proof that band class is not a time to relax, but a time to perfect. A young flutist patiently sits and listens as fellow band members warm-up for their try-outs before Mr. Kaufman. MISS ANNIE CATHERINE DOBYNS B.

" Two years of both Spanish and Latin are of- fered at FCHS; thus, conceivably a student could take four years of foreign language. Besides learning the vocabulary, verb conjugations, and basic sentence constructions, the students broaden their knowledge of Spanish his- tory and Latin mythology. In addition to the basic Latin construction, stu- dents translate Caesar ' s Commentaries on the Gallic Wars and Homer ' s Illiad and the Odyssey . Translations are essential to the study of Latin as vocabulary words are to the study of Spanish. More of an international kinship is felt after having studied the language, the people, and the customs of another country. Spanish I students use records, tapes, and almost anything available to help them acquire the correct Spanish accent and word pronunciation.

CALVIN RORRER B.S., Virginia Polytechnic Institute Industrial Arts I, II, IQ School Photographer Vocational Courses Develop Talents, Skills, In home economics class, girls learn that appreciation of beauty and quality are far more important than quantity, especially in selecting china and crystal. It is an accepted fact that not every high school student is coUege bound. It is further recognized that even those students— especiaUy girls— planning to attend college still need to acquire a degree of skill in some of the ordinary facets of daily living. Thus vocational courses are offered for both college and non-college bound students. In home economics classes girls learn to cook and sew, to handle family finances, and to select and decorate a home.FCHS offers four years of home economics and a one -year homemaking class designed especially for seniors. In the four years of vocational agriculture, boys are instructed in all phases of farming, ranging from selection of farm equipment to the proper care and use of farm land. Under supervised farm projects, every effort is made to see that the up-to-date procedures presented in the classroom become part of the boy ' s working knowledge and not just facts to be repeated on a test. In additions to agriculture, boys may acquire worthwhile skills in in- dustrial arts. Even if a student does not plan a vocation in this field, in- dustrial arts as a hobby can offer a sense of creativity and usefulness. 30 Students of industrial arts class learn to manipulate the precision instruments used in mechanical drawing.

He is also in charge of discipline and thus finds himself extending a firm as well as an under- standing hand to FCHS students. A manila folder lies closed. Enclosed between its bulging covers are re- cords of the past and facts to point the way to a useful and happy future. Every student at FCHS has such a folder-his permanent record- and his guid- ance counselor is always ready to help interpret the material in the folder. The counselor also is there to listen objectively to a student ' s problem or to share his latest triumph. Often a student stumbles in his search for maturity and needs help in grasping a new hope and a better understanding of himself. When this hap- pens, one of the three trained and experienced counselors is the staff which keeps the stumble from becoming a fall. Daily, Mrs. Albert, junior and senior counselor, confers with parents, students, and teachers, submits college rec- ommendations, and still manages to smile. To show guidance in action, Miss Dobyns, eighth and ninth grade counselor, questions a student about her grades. This was part of the American Education Week Program presented to parents. 32 Classes . . . The colorful and awesome doors of FCHS contin- uously open and close, for both obvious and vague rea- sons, and both willingly and unwillingly. Regardless of the reason for or the result of those openings and closings, 800 boys and girls are always in- volved. These changing individuals range from the ques- tioning eighth graders to the sophisticated seniors. With- in the domains of FCHS, these students share the grue- some chores of homework and tests; the exhilaration of victory and the exhaustion of defeat; the disappointment of the unfinished and the triumph of accomplishment. 33 Senior Class Officers: Terry Slusher, Vice-President; David Cox, Treasurer; Linda Gallimore, Secretary; Katherine Yeatts, Reporter; Randy Hallman, President.

The gyms were never so crowded as when two county teams competed. Then, in 1962, a dream was realized for the students of the county. The new FCHS was opened, and 184 Fresh- men merged into one body. Ignoring the barriers of distance, friendships were formed, and continued to grow throughout the next four years. Students were brought together in common interests in classes new to the county. In sports, the Rockets, Comets, and Eagles soared into the mighty Buffaloes, as former competitors now played for the same team. Rivalry diminished as a di- vided eighth grade class progressed toward a united senior class. Academics, sports, forensics, music— the class of ' 66 found numerous ways to express its interests and win hon- ors for the school. Providing leadership as class presidents in the 9th through the 12th grades were: James Bower, Steve Hill, Jimmy Shaver, Randy Hallman. A united class, an energetic class, a class proud of its record— this was the class of ' 66.

From early August to June the doors of FCHS ' s ath- letic department are never quite closed. With the click of hard-hitting shoulder pads, beginning the first bruising football practices, to the last out of the final baseball game, when sports equipment is stored away until an- other year, the locker rooms and playing fields are never still from the continuous trod of tired feet and the never dying cry of V-I-C-T-O-R-Y! The athlete, one of the most respected people of the high school world, combines muscle and timing, guts and luck. 77 The Buffaloes were mired in the cellar of the New River District early in the season after four decisive and successive losses. And there was still more defeat in store for the Buffs as they lost 6-0 in a heart-breaking game with Fort Chiswell. But the victory spark was ignited as the Buffaloes fought to a 13-13 tie with Fries in a do or die game. Foes Christiansburg and Hillsville inflicted additional defeats. Finally the victory spark was fanned into flames as the Buffaloes trounced Independence 34-19 in a wild scoring game. Only one more game, and one more de- feat, and grid season 1966 was over. Adjusting to a losing season was not easy, but the Buffaloes were gallant and spirited even in defeat. During the gridiron season, Coaches McReynolds ' and Martin ' s emotions ranged from elation to dejection and from patience to frustration.

The forty-seven boys on FCHS ' s eighth grade and J. V. teams are proof that this is true. But even a losing season on the scoreboard does not mean that all the work was wasted.

Sandra DeHart displays a look of disbelief as a 15-yard penalty is imposed on the Buffaloes. Captain Brenda Turman shares the ups and downs of the team, as she, too, becomes involved in the tur- moil of the game. Buffalo Victor ies Whether outdoors for a football game or in the gym- nasium for a basketball game, the cheerleaders are al- ways there— ready to lead the Buffalo supporters in cries for victory. Two and three afternoons each week, voices of practicing cheerleaders echo through school halls. In the spring of 1965, the newly elected varsity squad, consisting of entirely new members, attended a cheer- leading clinic held in Charlottesville; thus they began their first year as FCHS Varsity Cheerleaders. There ' s a certain indescribable charm and thrill about being a varsity cheerleader. And the seven freshmen girls of the JV Squad hope that the experience gained in the down pour of rain and under the lights of the crowded gym will help them become future varsity members. Cheerleading is a new experience for both the sponsor Miss Craddock and the squads, captained by Brenda Turman and Ellen Shelor. " Hi, you cats. . .We ' ve got a team that just can ' t miss, " is the boast of JV Cheerleaders. From cartwheels to high jumps, the agile JV ' s boost the moral support of the Baby Buffs. JV Cheerleaders: Judy Slaughter, Beth Simpson, Sarah King, Ellen Shelor, Captain; Ann Dunn, Sharon Shaver, Isabel Agnew. Only eighth and ninth graders are eligible for the JV squad. 87 Seniors Yeatts, Wade, Rakes, Hallman Team Up m A I ' !

Reserves are forced to endure the agonies of the game from the bench. Win or lose Coach Corron is always calm. A meeting of captains with officials precedes the opening whistle. 88 With Junior Turman to Form Nucleus of Team After being introduced, FCHS ' s starting cagers huddle and give a commanding shout for victory. For thirty-two minutes at a time the Buffalo cagers faced some of the toughest basketball competition in the state. They came away with five hard-fought victories in eighteen regular-season games, a few sprains and bruises, and some losses to the district ' s best that quali- fied as heartbreakers. For every game played to the stifling roar of fans, there were hours of work in the echoing, empty gym. Coach Ray Corron carried the smallest squad in the dis- trict; never more than nine players, fewer when injuries struck. With such a small team there was never time for a letup, and the squad couldn ' t afford to get out of shape, or slow down in a game. When the dust had cleared from the regular- season schedule, there were three teams tied for the last tour- ney spot, eighth place. Floyd County waited for Christiansburg and Fort Chiswell to play the first game and then faced Christiansburg ' s Demons in the final play- off game. The Buffs fought back from eight points down to tie the game in the wanning seconds, but the final score found them down 60-58; so very close, yet so very far away. So for seniors Lowell Yeatts, Dennis Wade, Bruce Rakes, and Randy Hallman the roundball battles came to an end. For FCHS there was the feeling of having played the season well and having bowed out in fine, fighting form.

With a one-handed jumper, Wade tries to lessen their margin of victory. R. Hallman, leading scorer for the Buffaloes and one of the top scorers in the district, he fouled by C ' Burg ' s D. Akers as he goes in for a lay- up. Hallman ' s game high was 27 points against C ' Burg. Center D. Wade meets his equal as he tries to control the opening tap. Did he make it?

An eloquent speech, a sparkling crown, a newly- typed manuscript, a medal of recognition— these are symbolic of hard work and a persistent desire to open and enter the doors of successful achievement in var- ious fields of endeavor. Some people achieve their goals and stand alone, while others share their ac- complishments. It is an accepted fact that school is not only homework, tests, and lectures; it is also club meetings, concert and play rehersals, campaigns and dances. Doors swing open and students surge into this nonacademic life of FCHS. 101 The month of May brought excitement to the Junior and Senior Classes of FCHS. Prom -time was nearing. Juniors began working during their study halls, after school, and at night. Silver stars were made and blue streamers were cut. A mural was drawn and a staircase was built. All of these tasks were preformed with the determination that this would be a prom of romantic memories. By eight o ' clock on the night of May four- teenth, the school cafeteria had been transformed into a haven of stars and streamers. As burning candles lit the room, couples danced to music played by the Randems. Thus, the Juniors presented " Stairway to the Stars " to the graduating Class of ' 66. During intermission FCHS ' s own band provided swing- ing entertainment. Decorators transform the cafeteria into a haven of blue and white streamers.

Magazine Campaign Exceeds Goal of $4,000 As in the past, the magazine campaign was a success with the school exceeding the goal of $4, 000. Class skits included everything from the " Man from Uncle " theme to Cleopatra on the Nile. These skits were presented to the student body to kick-off the annual magazine campaign. The competitive race for the trophies, Wooly Bullies, huge stuffed dogs, and cash prizes began. Daily high salesmen dipped into the fish bowl to re- ceive their cash award. At the end of the campaign, Steve Hill and Gus Howell were declared the high salesmen and the Sopho- mores took the trophy for highest sales per person. " So what if you sold more magazines than I did? I still got the dog. " Steve Hill and Gus Howell hold some of the prizes they received for being the high salesmen. Sponsors, Mr. Corron and Miss Slusher, along with the assistance of student business managers, David Cox and Linda Gallimore, led the school in mak- ing the magazine campaign a success. John Conner, Donnie Quesenberry, Anne Moore, and other students who sold four or more magazines, got to pick their prize from a sea of Woolly Bullies.

But the rain didn ' t go away and so the homecoming game with its accompanying fes- tivities was postponed from Friday to Saturday night. The postponement didn ' t dampen the spirits of the victory -hungry fans who packed the stands in hopes of seeing the Buffaloes get their first win of the season. Homecoming was a time for pretty girls, gallant boys, proud parents, competitive teams and reminiscent old grads. It was a time to warmly greet the queen, to cheer in response to " Thunderation, " and to dance until eleven. This was Homecoming 1965. The tension is finally over! Mr. B. P. Simpson, Vice-Chairman of the School Board, crowns Katherine Yeatts 1965 Homecoming Queen and then steps back for all to see the queen. The half-time activities were over and the radiant queen, sur- rounded by well-wishers and admirers, still seemed unable to believe that she was the queen! Spectators wondered which of the three senior girls would wear the Queen ' s crown. Would it be Katherine Yeatts, Brenda Lester, or Brenda Turman? 115 Christmas Season Is Reverent with Madonna; A hushed silence falls over the quietest of all as- semblies as FCHS students and faculty gather reverently to hear the Christmas story. The name of the girl selected Madonna was not re- vealed until the unfolding story told of the new-born babe and his mother. Only then did the student body know that, based on high Christian standards and good citizenship, Shirley Huff had been chosen Madonna and Linda Gallimore, Angel. The choir sings a medley of Christmas songs to set the mood for the appearance of the Madonna. A reverent moment is enhanced by " Gesu Bambino " sung by Mrs. Mock as Madonna Shirley Huff and Angel Linda Gallimore pro tray the manager scene. The faculty submitted to the senior class tire names of Susan Shelor, Katie Dunn, Evelyn Kenley, Linda Gallimore, Geneva Altizer, and Shirley Huff as Madonna candidates. 116 The choir sings quietly in the back- ground as the Christmas assembly comes to a close. Festive with Snow Queen " Sleigh bells ring, are you listenin ' ? In the lane snow is glistenin ' ! " Heralded by songs of Christmas, colorful floats, and the festive air of the Christmas Parade, the Snow Queen ' s Float seemed truly a landscape of snow, for its contours were covered in white. The girls, bundled warmly in furs, smiled bravely from their winter wonder- land. This was the only form of snow the people of Floyd County would see this Christmas. Mr. Ho 11 andsw orth and Mr. Houston open their gifts presented by the faculty at the traditional Christmas Party. Pretty Miss Brenda Turman was named Snow Queen by the senior class. The Woman ' s Club supplied the funds for the Beta Club to build the Queen ' s float. Riding on the float were Snow Court members Margie Gallimore, Linda Gallimore, 117 Brenda Turman, Queen; Jeanette Conner, and Jeaneal Higgs. Seniors’ Money-Making Project " The Five-Dollar " Yes, we ' re out front too! " From behind the scenes, the Benny Ninmann, Sandra Surber, Bruce Rakes, Gwendolyn back-stage crew and sponsors get their turn on stage: Mrs. Proffit, Randolph Cromer, Beulah Wilson, Mrs. Ruth Virginia Altizer, Director; George Agnew, Terry Slusher, Hallman, Director. Gary Shockey and Warren Sowers find time for a quick card game between scenes. Members of the Cast and committees gather on stage, nervously awaiting the comments of the director. Ushers for opening night were: Geneva Altizer, Lowell Yeatts, Brenda Turman, Bonnie Duncan, John Hale, and Connie Trail. Ralphie, Paul Williams, and Major, Randy Hallman, discuss the Major ' s favorite subject— the value of the dollar. 118 Bill” Cited as a Success " But, I don ' t want to be like my brother! " " It ' s all in the hips, Virginia. " Expressions changed, voices varied, and tempers flared as these and other emotion-packed lines were spoken November 14, 1965, when the Senior Class presented Tad Mosel ' s The Five Dollar Bill. The play brought into sharp focus the problems of a non- comforming teen-age boy and the relationship to his parents, his brother, and his friends. The cast, back-stage crew, and committees spent many hours with the directors, Mrs. Hallman and Mrs. Altizer, in producing the well-received play. The Major and his wife, Katie Dunn, are puzzled and concerned by the actions of their two teen-age sons. Ralphie tries to explain to Virginia, Joyce Quesenberry, why he feels he is such a misfit. In a moment of desperation Ralphie argues with his conscience over the taking of a $5 bill from his mother ' s purse. Off stage Jimmy Shaver becomes " brown as a berry " through repeated applications of a tanning lotion by Beulah Wilson. The young people visiting at the Moore home are: K. Yeatts, G. Shockey, A.

Sowers. 119 Under the Scrutiny of Its 810 Members After a hard fought campaign, Steve Hill The gaily decorated pine placed in the front lobby by SCA ' ers was a was elected President of the SCA for 1966. constant reminder that Christmas vacation was getting closer.

" the SCA Council Conducts Business Students govern themselves? No, not exactly, but the Student Coopera- tive Association is the organ through which students may voice their opinions. That doesn ' t mean that the SCA is designed solely for student gripes and demands. Instead this 810 member organization serves as an agent of co- operation between students and faculty, acts as a service medium, and pro- vides a forum for student government. The SCA atFCHS has a unique characteristic.lt is probably the only such organization in the state of Virginia which elects its officers in a mock elec- tion— complete with political parties, convention delegates, campaign speeches, and voting. The SCA opens to every student doors to sock hops, the Madonna Pageant, locker inspections, and the Homecoming Dance. Yvonne Vest and Donna Spangler chat as they decorate for the Homecoming dance sponsored by the SCA. Donna Spangler leads attentive council members in a discussion of sock hop plans.

Only after careful screening based on academic standing, contribution to school life, citizenship, leadership, and character are members invited to join the club. The Beta ' s money-making project of selling dishcloths and sponsoring a fall dance enabled the club to complete three major service projects. The club delivered thrity-two Christmas boxes of food and presents of toys and clothing to needy families throughout the county. The Betas also purchased a neck microphone for the school and pictures to hang in Mr. Houston ' s office. This was in addition to the club ' s perpetual service of providing the school with many leaders in many fields of study and extra-curricular activity. Beta officers J.Matherly, Secretary; G.

Nothing, not even 17 inches of snow, will keep Sandra Surber, Business Manager; Susan Shelor, Associate Editor; and Katherine Yeatts, Editor, from meeting the yearbook deadline. Even before school opens, Bison staffers begin with vague ideas; by the end of the semester the ideas have become a reality and the yearbook has taken on an iden- tity. The hum of student voices, the peck of the type- writer, the flash of the camera, the scrape of a blunt pencil used to edit copy time and time again, and the moans of a harrassed sponsor are the sounds which char- acterize yearbook work. And suddenly the pressure of the deadline is replaced by a sense of relief and a personal pride in the finished product. Photographer Gus Howell finds a harem of girls not al- ways a paradise as he tries to pose staffers A. Dunn, B. Turman, S. Shaver, K. Poff, and K. Simmons. The annual takes form with the help of C.

The twelve members of the W. T. Harry Chapter of the International Honor Society of Quill and Scroll, a journalist organiza- tion, work overtime to maintain its reputation as one of the most active clubs at FCHS. The monthly Creative Writing Contest serves to en- courage latent talent and to acknowledge natural and developed talent. Students in all grades submit plays, poems, essays, and short stories to be judged in the monthly contests. Adding a new dimension to the field of journalism at FCHS, the Quill and Scroll Club plans to publish its first literary magazine in the spring of 1966. A-B-C-D. ..

" This was the observation of one dejected editor trying to layout her first paper. The consensus of the sixteen juniors and seniors in the journalism class is that newspaper work is not a glamourous job. They declare that " There ' s more to it than readers ever dreamed possible. " The students gather and write the news for six page issues of the County Crier . Six hundred twelve column inches must be filled each time with news, editorials, pictures, cartoons, captions, headlines, and subheads. Serving as an information center for students and faculty of FCHS, the Crier seeks to inform, lead, and influence. The circulation staff, Thurston Beaver, Connie Trail, Frances Vaughn, and Freddie Stuart, prepare the news- paper for mailing of exchange copies with other schools. " It ' s too dull, we need something eye-catching ! " Associ- ate editors, Richard Nester and Martha Weeks, discuss possible layouts with editor Katie Dunn and Sponsor Miss Nancy Slusher. Margarette Helms, Eunice Layman, Dennis Akers, Roger Vest, Phillip DeWitt, Raymond Reed, Betty Higgs, and Patsy McNeil study newspaper techniques. Jimmy Shaver gets his hands into the dirty work of the newspaper with the help of Miss Slusher and the supervi- sion of Randy Hallman. 127 Reporters Terry Slusher, Donna Griffith, and Patsy Phillips scoop Mr. Hollandsworth on upcoming administration policies. FBLA Helps Qualify Students for Vocations Officers: Miss Nancy Slusher, Sponsor; Bonnie Duncan, President; Evelyn Belcher, Vice-President; Jeanette Conner, Secretary; Beulah Wilson, Treasurer; Shelby Quesenberry, Reporter; Mary Connier, Parliamentarian. The future is of concern to many clubs at FCHS, but to the FBLA it is more than just a part of the name. The club influences the future of underprivileged children when it sponsors the annual March of Dimes Campaign. From the first announcement to the final count of con- tributions— this is the job of the FBLA alone. The future of the members themselves is also pre- pared for through interesting speakers at club meetings, tours of out-of-town businesses, and a trip to the Bank of Floyd. Thus, the club serves as an important means of developing individual interests and dealing with various vocational problems. % Mrs. Mary Spangler, one of the club ' s guest speakers, gives members practical tips on being a good secretary.

Galen Boyd is often found under the hood of a car while on the job at Floyd Motor Company. The local chapter of the Distributive Education Clubs of America is an integral part of the Distributive Educa- tion program and is composed of all students studying DE. The club activity constitutes a vital element of the training of the Distributive Education student. It is re- garded as co-curricular rather than as a extra-curricular activity. Through active participation in club activities the students gain a better understanding of the business world, become conscious of his civic obligations, and develop social poise and leadership ability. The class- room instruction, the on-the-job training experience, and the chapter program are mutually dependent components of a balanced D. E. Curriculum. DE II: Mr. Warren Eakin, Sponsor: L.

A new sponsor and new membership requirements sets the stage for the sharing of a dream by sixty FCHS boys and girls. The dream is the goal of entering the teaching profession as a life-time vocation. Mrs. Turman and her newly installed slate of officers started the busy year by screening sophomores, juniors, and seniors to determine which ones were eligible for membership in the Future Teachers of America Club. Once the list of those eligible was posted, monthly club meetings were directed toward creating a dedicated interest in the field of teaching. A pfjj— ' mi ■w ■ ' W 1 ¥ t if £ i mm i Row One:J.

Girls in FHA work to accomplish many things, but none is more important than earning Junior, Chapter, and State Degrees.

Dressed appropriately and with tools ready, the boys take seriously this once-a-year training day. Highlight FFA and FHA Year Teaching students to live successfully in groups and as individuals is a basic function of education. Thus many FFA and FHA activities are designed to promote that function. Joint group activities include the fun of planning and attending informal club get-togethers, the satisfying work and the boastful pride of building a float, and the uniqueness of going to FHA-FFA camp. The op- portunities for individual growth experiences range from the tense anticipation of appearing in a school assembly, to the sheer delight yet awkwardness of presenting parents at a club banquet, to the time-consuming yet rewarding attempts to receive the State Homemaker of State Farm- er Degree.

FFA ' ers find their days filled with crop and forestry judging, and public speaking contests. These and other competitive activities are brought to a climax at the annual state convention held in Blacksburg. However, FFA boys do not confine themselves to the farm work. In addition to serving as a learning medium, the club gives the boys a chance to have fun at such events as a Christmas party, an FFA banquet, and sum- mer camp.

The Science Club goes to work at the first meeting in September, for the year will be a busy one. The Science Fair which scouts the school for scientific abil- ity is a big undertaking for the thirty-seven members; so each one is required to enter a project or work on a committee. For this reason, club programs often consist of talks on research methods or new scientific advance- ments. However, Science Club members do not confine their activities to the lab. A float in the annual Christmas parade, club parties, and work in the concession stand are activities which give the club a well-rounded out- look of fun, learning, and recognition of scientific ability. A Science Club member scans the hall for customers at a moment when business seems slow. Row One: C. DeHart, H. Ratliff, P. Reed, E. Shelor, M. Dulaney, P. Weddle, M. Poff, B. Vest, B. West, R.

Raymond Reed serenades the faculty during lunch with his rendi- tion of " Old MacDonald. " The athletes who have lettered in the various sports are eligible for membership in the Varsity Club. This club promotes interest in the sports program and annually sponsors the Athletic Banquet at which the athletes of FCHS are rewarded for their outstanding accomplishments in each sport. One of the funniest events at FCHS is the Varsity Club initiation. Old members taunt prospective members with everything from leap frog to serenades in the cafeteria. A traditional job assigned club rrjembers is the de- signing and painting of the " Buffalo " signs which picture the symbol of the team. Officers: G. Shockey, Secretary; R. Kidd, Treasurer; B.

Senior Tri-Hi-Y and Hi-Y clubs are non-denomi- ational organizations affiliated with the YMCA and YMCA respectively. Having one of the smallest mem- berships of any club at FCHS, they nevertheless make an impressive impact on the student body. Their activ- ities, basically service, are designed to promote Chris- tian growth in spirit, mind, and body. Senior Tri-Hi-Y girls wrap Christmas presents for needy elementary school children of the county. Officers: Mrs. Ruth Harman, Sponsor; Judy Matherly, Gallimore, Vice-President; Leta Enoch, Treasurer.

The bulletin board, which the clubs are responsible for during the year, pro- vides another outlet for club activities. The clubs collect dues and are in charge of the concession stand one night during the football season. Hi-Y ' ers, L. Howery, R. Phipps, and J.

Each third Thursday during the school year seventy- five chattering eighth and ninth grade girls leave the noisy school corridors and devote an hour to serious think- ing. Jr. Tri-Hi-Y, an affiliate of the YWCA, affords these girls the opportunity to contemplate the devotions given by a fellow member, to toss tricky questions to an alert and informed panelist or to discuss a timely teenage subject. From putting up bulletin boards to giving gifts to the needy at Christmas, these girls always attempt to create a Christian atmosphere. M Row One: D. Moles, D. Griffith, R. Thomas, J. Ruthrough, S.

" With these words Sarah Simmons pins Carolyn Quesenberry and welcomes her into the club. It is a good feeling to give and Jr. Tri-Hi-Y ' ers ex- perience this feeling as they prepare Christmas presents for the needy of our community. A busy night at the concession stand means money for the club treasury. The cashbox jingles as fans keep Mrs. O ' Conner and Carol Agee busy at the popcorn machine with their hungry demands. Greatest Book With new books constantly being circulated, D. Harris, E. Yates, N. Turman, and R. Burnette struggle to keep the card catalogue up-to-date. of All” th eme of Library So you like books and people, then the Library Aids is the club to join. Sauntering through the open doors of the library, using its varied facilities, and being help- fully assisted by a cheerful Library Aid are common occurances for every FCHS student and teacher. Books, books, and more books are handled daily by these stu- dents who lend a helping hand in an attempt to keep the library organized and useful. " The Greatest Book of All " was the theme of the prize- float entered in the Floyd County Christmas Parade by the Library Aids. Row One: C.King,M. Moran, B. Quesinberry, S. Epperly, K. Lawson, S.

There ' s the anxiety of competing in a pa- rade and the nervous desire of auditioning for a position in All-State Band. The band and its significance is recognized when the strutting majorettes and the erect drum major lead the group down the street and someone yells, " Hey, here comes our band. " Maj ore tte s: Left: Head Majorette, A. Moore. Right: Head Twirler, C. Trail. Middle File: L. Spence, L. Pauley, L. Enoch, P. Spence, S. Shelor. Band mem- bership is a requirement for majorettes. Band Council: A. Moore, Head Majorette; J. Quesenberry, President; C. Trail, Head Twirler; S. Shelor, Vice- President; G. Howell, Drum Major; Randy Hallman, Secretary. This group sets band policies. Under the direction of Mr. Jack Kaufman, and Drum Major Gus Howell the band maintains a busy schedule. Improvement as a group and as individuals— this has been the goal and accomplishment of the advanced choral group under the talented direction of Mrs. Mock. From the tedium of each working class day to the sparkling performance before a large audience, the choir continually strives to attain vocal maturity. Each day, during second period, voices may be heard singing any- thing from a spirited folk song to an inspiring Christmas cantata. The choral group has prepared programs for community concerts, church and club gatherings, and school assemblies. As a representative of FCHS, their accomplishments are recognized throughout the county. At the American Education Week Program, one of its first public performances of the year, the choir ' s finesse created an appreciative stir in the audience. New Director Breathes Vital Life into Choir Deborah Griffith, one of the student soloists, sings " My Soul Doth Magnify " during the Christmas Assembly. FCHS ' s newest musical group, the Gleettes, composed of D. Huff, B. Conner, W. Weddle, N. King, J. Slaughter and P. Phillips, are an outgrowth of choir work. Row One: F. Poff, D. Huff, B. Cockram,D.

Conner, B. Ninmann, P. Belcher, L. Brewster, N. Truman, B. Vest, J. Slaug hter. Music Serves as an Outlet for Self-Expression The practice rooms in the music department are seldom quiet. There may be found band members prac- ticing for try-outs, a choral student accompanying him- self on the piano, and majorettes learning a difficult routine to the " count of eight. " An interest in music and a desire to learn to appre- ciate and participate in it are the goals of both the choir and band. Together they give a concert each Christmas and each sends representatives to All-State Band and All- State Chorus. But each is different and thus their activ- ities vary. Parades, football shows, and District Festival are activities of the band alone. The choral group, too, stays busy presenting dignified and entertaining vocal selections. Choral classes are always conducted on the stage. Mrs. Mock and her first year students gather around the piano for another hour of practice. A darkened sky, a cold damp night, and colorful major- ettes with well-rehearsed routines whet the appetite of football fans. This year the FCHS marching band is always preceded by its new banner carried by M. Weeks and L. Aldridge. Band Director, Mr. Kaufman, is often heard shouting, " We were at letter ' E ' , Trumpets, where were you? " 149 KVG Crews Preserves Mother State’s Row One: S. Burton, L. Keith, G. Dulaney, D.

The members are divided into crews, with boys from the same area of the county belonging to the same crew.

From early in the morning when the first bus leaves on its route until late in the afternoon when the last student is deposited safely at home; from drifting snow to spring rains and their effects on student transportation; from the time the first car arrives at the football game until the parking lot is full; these individuals help to keep FCHS on schedule. " Don ' t shake the ladder! " A warm summer day finds the maintenance crew painting the flag pole.

At the end of the day, the trash cans are piled high with discarded gum, gum wrappers, and crumpled tests. Having endured the tramplings of some 800 " Buffaloes, " the floors are dusty and marred. Thus the custodial staff begins a recurring job. Lunches at FCHS cost only twenty-five cents; ingenuity of the cooks can take much credit for that fact. Planning in advance for variety plus nutritious meals helps create a lunch program which serves the majority of students. - — yB ¥ mi |1 Jfl Sometimes at early night the only sounds audible at FCHS are those of the custodians as they prepare the building for another school day. Mrs. Mabel Via, Mrs. Ruby Agnew, Mr. Tommy Royal, and Mr. Jimmy Thomas serve as custodians. Mrs. Eva Howard, chairman of the fac- ulty Christmas Party, wishes members of the custodial staff a happy holiday after presenting them with gifts. It ' s mid-aftemoon; everyone has been fed and cooks Mrs. Louise Hylton, Mrs. Bula Keith, Mrs. Margaret Howery, Mrs. Virginia Spence, Mrs. Catherine Weeks, and Mrs. Glenna Weedle enjoy a coffee break.

A look through the doors of the business world reveals: the harrassed manufacturer attempting to make enough of " those high top boots " to fill the swelling demand; the local short-order cooks trying desperately to fill the " hamburger and French-fries " orders amid the clamor of teenage voices; the automobile dealers proudly exhibit- ing their latest models, thus initiating fiery discussions The se are the loyal merchants who don ' t mind taking a few minutes to hear what FCHS students have to say- even if the student is soliciting an ad for the 1966 Bison. 155 PIGGLY WIGGLY SELF-SERVICE SHerwood 5-571 1 Floyd, Virginia 156 WILLIS SHELL STATION Good-Year Tires General Repair Mechanical Work Phone No. 789-4533 JACK JILL SHOP Chi Idren ' s Wear All Ages: Boys to Size 20 Girls to Teens Infant Wear Radford Virginia E.

Yes, like other school years, 1965-66 will be rem- embered for the class taught by the favorite teacher, the action-packed athletic events, the fad that lasted oh so long, and the long hard rides on the yellow bus. But, there were other doors opened that made the year distinctive and which affected FCHS students. It was the year in which the war in Viet Nam was escalated; the year that astronauts took long, long space rides; the year that park- ing meters were installed in the town of Floyd; the year of the death of a long and faithful friend of FCHS, Mr. Woolwine; the year of the Sunday snow blizzard that iso- lated Floyd County for days; the year of " tigers " in the tank. Countless doors were opened and closed making the year and those who lived it distinctive. 184 I I I i Floyd Library Montgomery-Floyd Regional Library System pr V- ‘j Montgomery-Floyd Regional Library
