The Cross Country Run
The .Xnnual Cross Country Run was held on XVednesday. February llth,
after about two weeks of hard training that the teams might be picked for the
cross country run in the class competition and there was indeed great interest
taken by the classes.
The course was tive and one-half miles and was extremely hard to run at
this time of the year for the ground was still frozen. For a week before the
event this was the main topic of conversation by the cadets: so much so that
the Seniors and lireshmen were picked as the winners. Of course, the
Juniors had several good men that they were counting on to make first place.
But the Sophomores, well, they were not even thought of as being in the
class to win anything, and some thought that there was not a man in the
class to place in the contest. Coach Pitt had confidence and faith in them
and thought they would at least come in third.
The day at last came, but it was cold and it seemed that the ground
was frozen harder than ever. with a cold north wind blowing. The race
was close from the start to the finish for all men were in prime condition.
So close was the race that you could not pick a winner until after the race
was two-thirds over. But soon we noticed a man in the rear passing one
and then another during the last half mile. gaining at every step: we soon saw
that Lieutenant Cosby was in the lead. He finished with forty yards
in the lead.
This gave the Juniors the leading man. XVhere were the Seniors? But
lo, here they come! The second and third men were Seniors. To our utter
surprise at this stage of the race we could see that at least three Sophomores
were in place. XVhere in the world was that wonderful little Freshman team
that the Rats had talked so much about? No one but their Captain, Wfaldron,
placed. The race finally ended with a tie between the Seniors and Sopho-
The following is the standing of the classes by points:

The tie between the leading classes was never run off.

HOXYARD S. BERGICR, C.x1f'r.x1N, l"1'r.vf Base.
"Mutt" has often been spoken of as the best first baseman Fork Union
has ever had. Never was a truer statement made by anyone. He out-played
any Hrst baseman on any team that played lforlc Llnion during the past
two years. He is our home-run slugger, pulling in more than any member
of our team. He made an excellent Captain, full uf pep and always leading
the team to victory.
ROBERT R. BOT'l'llXlORli, twvlzvr.
"Hottie" is a three year letter man and tu see him behind the bat you
would think him an imported man from the XYhite Sox or Cinci Reds.
He was always able to receive in great style. .X sure man with the stick-
not long hits. but those that count,
CURTIS C. TIIOKIPSON. Pifrlzvr.
"Curt," that wonderful southpaw, has been picked as an "all state"
pitcher. His equal has not been found. Never losing his head and always
pitching air-tight ball. He won many a game single handed.
CURTIS FRAY. Slmrf Stop.
Fray is one of our two year letter men. He neyer says much but is
always on the job when those hot grounders come into his territory and
with that sure peg to first the batter was gone. He was the lead-oil man
at the bat throughout the season and always displayed his batting ability
when we were in a pinch.
HARRY BOHANNON, Lvfz' Ifivld.
"Bo" is also a two year letter man. .X better fielder cannot be found.
Little "Bo" always had a sure eye on those long Hies and cutting men oil at

the home plate with his long throw was his favorite trick. He developed
wonderfully at the bat during the past year. He was elected captain of the
baseball team for next year.
ROLAND STEPHENS, Tlzird Base. e
"Stephie" is no doubt the most able man on the team. He knew the
game from .X to Z. A Rat. but my, how he could play ball. Never smiles,
but in that serious nature that makes him doubly reliable when working out
his plays. He led the team in batting average this season. He was elected
manager of the team for next year.
GRgXH.XlW THOMAS, Svfolld BGSU.
Graham did not make his letter last year, missing it by one game. but
this year he was always at the second sack from the first to the last game.
To see him you would never take him for a ball player. but put him on the
infield and be is a baseball playing "trick"
BILL RICHMOND, Ccaifw' lf1'clfz'.
"Billie" never played baseball until this year and it was only through
continuous work and practice that he made the Varsity. He had little con-
fidence in himself until he made that home run with three men on bases in
the Danville game. From that moment he was there with the goods.
ALVAH B. BLOXOM, Right Field.
flloxom was a Rat. His first year on a team and at first few thought
he would ever make the Varsity but working hard and faithfully we found
towards the middle of the season that he was in the regular line up. He
has developed into a wonderful little fielder.
H. ROE BARTLE, MANAGER.
With his team at heart he has proven to be an excellent executive as
well as the most popular manager Fork Union has ever had. Too much
credit cannot be given him for the success of our team.

lVitl1 four letter men back this year in baseball, Captain Berger. Fray,
Bottimore and Bohannan, we had about thirty other cadets out for the
Varsity team. Among them was Curtis Thompson, our "all state pitcher."
who deserves much credit for the showing of our team this season. .After
a hard season of training the nine were picked and never has there been a
faster infield nor a surer outfield than we had this year: playing twelve
championship games and losing only two.
Our team opened- up the season on its own diamond with the Richmond
College second team on March 31st, This was an easy game for the cadets
and it gave Coach Pitts a good chance to study his men in a real game. The
score was l5 to l in favor of F. U.. Richmond College getting but one hit oi?
Thompson and that by Miller, a former Boston American.
Q11 April the 2nd we continued the good work of the first game by de-
feating Danville Military lnstitute by 18 to 2. This made the second victory
for cadets at home to witness.
April the 5th we went to play lfishburn Military Academy. After getting
as far as Charlottesville word reached us that the game was cancelled by
our opponents. They did not have another open date so it was impossible
to have the annual game. It was much to our regret that we were unable
to meet our old rivals this year.
April the 16th found our boys on their way to Richmond to meet the
Benedictine Military College. Another victory was added to our string by
defeating them 12 to 3, It was a nice clean game and more interesting than
the score indicates.
Blackstone Military Academy, our strong old rival, was the next team
to meet, so April the l7th found us at Blackstone. Sad but true we lost a
hard-fought game as the score of 2 to l shows. The writer wishes to give
his readers a summary of the game and let them decide which team played
the better ball. Thompson fanned l7 men while Throne, Blackstone's pitcher,
fanned only 6. Fork Union got S hits while Blackstone got only 2. Black-
stone made 3 errors while Fork Union made no errors. The manager of
our team had another contract signed by Blackstone to play another game.

but they canceled it. XYe tried until the end of the season to have them
play the second game, but all efforts were in vain. XVe have been taught
that it is better to lose a game honorably and fairly than to win a game by
Our next game was with XVoodbury Forest. .X beautiful game. Close
and exciting, winding up with the score l to 0 in our favor. The treatment
we received at XYoodbury Forest was far above the average. The XX'ood-
bury boys were real sports, even though they lost the game, and our boys
came home singing the praises of lYoodbury lforest.
Chatham Training School came to us on April the 30th. This game was
undoubtedly the best game played on our diamond this season. Chatham
played a line game but out team outhit Chatham and won the game 5 to l.
Scottsville came over to pay her annual respects to old Fork Union and
also to carry away the game but in this they were disappointed because the
victory was ours by a score of 12 to 4. The cadets always look forward to
the games with Scottsville with a great deal of interest for it is only of late
years that we have been able to hold them down.
The day our boys went to .Xugusta Military Academy was a hard one
on them, having to make the trip in autos. Nevertheless, it was our duty
to defend the state championship. NYe well remember how we trimmed them
last year and we were also well aware of the fact that they were laying for
us with a strong team. The game was an exciting one. but Augusta landed
the game, shutting us out 4 to O. XYe hated to lose the game, but to lose to
such a fine bunch of men was a pleasure. .-Xgain we received the best of
treatment on the diamond and during our stay with them. Coach Carter
is the kind of coach we like to play against.
lVe came back to old lfork Union a little down-hearted after the game.
but we had Benedictine to play on the home grounds. This game was a walk-
away and very much one-sided, for the score stood 18 to 7. Most of our
second team men got in this game.
Scottsville and Fork Union crossed bats at Scottsville and the boys won
from our friends by the score of 9 to 2.
The last game of the season was to be played at home on May the 22nd
and on this date the McGuire University team, of Richmond, came with a
strong team to defeat us, but somehow the cadets were on their tiptoes during

the whole game and they were so tight that they W1 iuld not let a McGuire man
reach the home plate. So the outcome was a walk-away for Fork Union with
the score standing 10 to 0.
The Cadets wanted to see another game at home so Seottsville came over
for the second time. In this game we used most of the second and third team
men as our Varsity team had finished their work. XVell. it ended by defeating
our friends 5 to 4.
The season did not bring us the state championship as it did in 1013
and 1919 but nevertheless we are proud uf the work done and we feel that it
was a most successful season. The team was doubtless the best all-around
team Fork Union ever turned out.
Our opponents scored 30 runs while the Red and Blue made 106. XYe
can truly say we had a great team.

The Varsity Club
This club was founded during the past year and each and every man
who had made his letter in any branch of athletics was eligible for member-
ship. The purpose of the club is not altogether tu promote the social life of
its members but to foster all branches of athletics. It handles all questions
that come up from time to time in athletics. The club has a room that is
beautifully fitted up and is the most attractive club room in school. It is a
place where all the athletes spend their spare time, for there is no swearing
or smoking allowed in the Varsity club room, thus making it an ideal place
for the boys to spend their idle moments.
The following who have the privilege of wearing the letter "F" are
members of the Varsity Club:

The Literary Societies

societies worked hard under the general leadership -if Capt.

Col. X. il. Perkins was in charge of the Ciceronian
SAT'b"'!m Society while Major S. D. Bartle looked after the .Xthenian
and they acted as the critics for their societies. The great thing nf interest
to look forward to was the inter-society contest to see who would win the cup.
There were two contests hetween these societies held towards the last
of the year. The dehaters for the Ciceronian Society were Paan and Bartle:
Hall and Cosby. Those for the Athenians were lYalne and Ferguson:
Stone and Monds. These young inen showed great talent as debaters and
each won honors in the work they did. The declaiiners for Ciceronian were
Thompson and XYitt: for the .fXthenians, Cootes and llvatkins. The readers
for Ciceronian were Coleman, NY. E.. and Tompkins: for Athenians. Lay
The Athenians won the cup hy two points. It was a close contest and it
was no one-sided affair as the results show. lt is expected that next year
deeper interest will be shown hy the cadets in preparing for the inter-society
contests. the .-Xthenians to keep the cnp and the Cicernnians to take it away.

HAD just boarded 'one of those sumptuous trains, long

watching a small white handkerchief waved by a loving hand
M X from the front door of my home overlooking the City of
L litton Irorge. X a.. when my attention wqasuattracted by the
super-polite porter: "I.ower 10 15 ready, sir, and I was soon
li ist in the realms of dreamland,
The road became as smooth as the placid surface of a lake on a breezeless
summer day. The train was crowded with gaily-dressed people, and numerous
porters went to and fro, attending to the comfort of the passengers.
"Gut for Ifork Union! Change cars for Richmond, Newport News and
Old Point Comfort: XYashington, Philadelphia, New York and all points
North and Ilast!'y
I had forgotten that Fork Union was now on the trunk line of the Ches-
apeake and Ghio between Xew York and New Orleans, and all trains from
the XYest stopped here now instead of going on to Richmond.
"Great Scott! A Union Depot! By the Butless Billy Goats! The Great
liastern! A trunk line from Newport News to Chicago!" The yelling of the
porters and the pushing of the crowd put an end to my ejaculations.
"Hotel Fork Union!" "Academy Hill!" "Snead's Inn!" all sounded
in lily ear simultaneously, causing my hair to stand on end. "Heres your
automobile to Hotel lfork Union!" yelled a porter, and fairly hustled me
into a seat in the veritable palace of luxury. and before I could realize what
the situation really was I was off up a beautiful granolithic street. bordered
by solid blocks of business houses and crowded with hurrying people. autos,
street cars and all manner of vehicles, and here and there hurried bunches of
cadets in their trim uniforms.
"Is this Fork Union?" asked I, as I pulled off my hat and rubbed my
brow to see if I were really myself.
"Yes, sir: never here before?" asked my neighbor passenger. "She has
grown wonderfully in the last twenty years. Heres the 'Institutef " said

ago to take charge of the girls here.
I was just about to ask him something more about the old teachers of the
.Xcademy when a magnificent view spread out before us. XX e had at this
moment crossed the top of the hill at the 'kJ1J1JCllllCl1l1C1'i. place. Qould l
believe my eyes? A perfect maze ol streets and houses, as lar as the eye
could carry, described the situation. ln the center ot the whole stood one
object which at once appeared familiar and unchanged. 'l here it was encircled
by imposing modern buildings-'the plain, modest old Academy lJlllltll1lgS,
having been replaced by beautiful modern structures. boon we were speed-
ing across a viaduct and through the heart of lfork L nion-but not the l'4l1'K
Union I used to know. bkyscrapers loomed up where once were the lands
marks of Pettit, Thomas and Weaver.
While l was drinking in all this with my eyes, the auto came to a sudden
stop before a magnilicent ten-story building, and the porter said: "Hotel
lfork Union, gentlemen. XValk right in."
"By gums!" Could this be the place where Mrs. julia Snead used to
keep hotel? So it must be. 'l here across the street was the old lfork Church
and there was the campus in front of the Academy, though the old fence was
replaced by a handsome stone wall. just then l recognized the familiar face
and tottering form coming up the walk.

says. XVell, do you know these here school teachers work only ten days in the
month and get bigger pay than any of these other fellows who work six whole
days in the week? They are the biggest set of makeshifts in the country."
The dinner bell rang and I hurried in to eat a few bites and then take in
the town. I entered a room filled with strangers, but heard a familiar voice
across the room. "Hello, Xl?"

"Hello, Dr. George Y" I exclaimed, "How are you? Married yet ?"
"No," came the solitary answerg "still playing single."
just as I sat down I noticed my old professor of Mathematics sitting
on the opposite side of the table from me, eating with mathematical accuracy
and discussing with an old white-haired gentleman whether the parabola is a
closed curve at infinity. I could not restrain myself from breaking into this
interesting discussion and giving my old teacher a warm hand-shake. He
proceeded immediately to explain to me the mathematical ratio which he had
worked out, by which the old town had grown and the limits of this growth.
Dinner over, I walked out on the campus. NVhat a change greeted my
eyes! Street cars going here and there, bringing in crowds of people and
going empty. Great buildings on every side and the almost incessant "honk"
of the automobile filled me with surprise and wonder. "XVhy all this crowd?"
said I to a bystander.
"Baseball," said he. "Fork Union Us. Cornell. Big game."
Becoming more familiar, I began asking my new acquaintance about my
Capt. Wildman? Oh, yes: he went to Chicago University from here.
where he took his Ph. D. and taught for several years. He has written
several books, among which is a volume of poetry dedicated to Browning.
He traveled abroad and is now professor of English at Harvard. He has
written several discussions in the leading magazines on the Subjective Mind,
and is now engaged in writing a logical discussion on 'Universality of Lovef
Capt. Vernon? XN'hy, let's see. He went back to New Mexico and

elderly gentleman, venerable and hoary-headed. with an elastic step that
betrayed the vigor of youth.

Back to F. U.. on that same old green hill.
Xlfhere the streams of cadets are climbing it still:
Back to that ridge with its halls in a row.
Xlihere yearnings for knowledge once led us to go.
Classmates, come back from your hurry and care,
The business that brings silver threads to your hair.
lYe are so tired of the world and its strife:
Let us go back to our happy school-life.
Don't you remember those benches so worn-
The teacher who had for fresh air such a scorn?
Ulntelligis, tu," how each said "Adsum,"
Because they all had such good times in that room?
And then there was one, a hne graceful form,
XYhose face was so bright he made every heart warm.
He trained us in "Phys" toward the end of each clay,
And to laugh, shout and cry, "in the usual way."
Another old room, where we met each day.
And studied, "in passing," of times far away:
You know, from that class, not an hour we stole,
From there the "sequential" oft "played quite a role."

Equally fond of peroxides!and Polk!
One singer whose voice we'll remember for aye.

Those rows of teachers with brains and nne hairs.

And made us resolve that our best we would do
To uphold its name for truth and good order-
And truly we did try, but oft reached the border
Of stampede and riot. when some smiling fate
lVould give us "victory" in some hard-fought debate.
Those chapel hymns! but words are too few
To tell how we longed for one that was 1u'tz'.'
By that long stay in chapel we all felt abused:
How eager we listened for the Major's "Excused!"
That windy old chapel-what mem'ries still cling!
VVhat echoes of school days around that name still ring!
The faces and forms, now scattered and gone,
Come back to our vision. and leading them, one

"Object of the meeting-general business." he snapped. "Move we pros

officers. They have got it into their heads that they are running the military

suggestions from the faculty, so we will let you take care of it."

said Col. Perkins.

from my presence and soon I go to another room and find him there: and it

Coach Pitt said something I could not hear and the subject was droppped.
Capt. Lavender stated that he was having a great deal of trouble with
certain young men in English Bible. Their conduct was so bad that it was
necessary to send them out of the classroom.
Capt. Vernon said: "XVhen I was Dean of an Xgricultural College I
had no trouble with the men. But the cadets here are a great problem as to
know just what to do with them. I have come to the conclusion after my
long years of college experience to give Major Bartle a list of these young
men and recommend so many hours to walk and I can see it is doing the
work." I ' I

John uincy Adams
- .f Hli divine principle of individual freedom so long confined
in dungeons began to assert itself in the Revival of Learn-
ing-the Renaissance and the Reformation. This was the
fvaf life-giving principle of the Revolutionary lYar, and had its
best expression in the Declaration of lndependence.
l 'i"f'4"'f4? E lt was a principle which inspired john Quincy Adams
for a half-century of public service lt enabled him as Senator. as Minister
of State, as President, but most of all as a Representative to teach the Amer-
ican people obedience to the state and personal independence.
Believing duty to be above everything else, and true to his own teachings.
although he had filled two continents with his fame. although he was at that
age when most men seek repose, he forgot his own personal comfort and
stepped down to the level of a representative.
In 1331 when he entered Congress his first utterance was a protest
against all party affiliations, which he justly considered a crime. Not caring
whether a question before the House would benefit a political party. he would
say "lVill it benefit the whole worldu?
Nothing, however, so well shows the conscience of the man as his rela-
tions to the slavery question. Although slavery was deeply rooted among the
people, although it was supported by the Constitution. sanctioned by the re-
ligions, he saw and declared its utter destruction. Already an old man with
gray locks and wrinkled brow but with the vigor of youth, he gave his last
remaining powers for the final struggle.
The slaveholders for the protection of their interests had put in the
rules of the House, the resolution, that all petitions referring to slavery should
be laid on the table. Consequently when Mr. Adams arose one day and asked
the Speaker if a petition, which he held in his hand from the slaves, came
under the rule of the House, the southern members were very much surprised
and became involved in an angry debate. They demanded that this honorable
gentleman who had presented the petition for slaves should be publicly con-
demned. For three days the storm raged. lYhat a sight to see! An old man
turning away from the quiet and rest so much needed, not thinking of the

He held up his accusors to ridicule. read them a lesson in parliamentary

Fire years later he presented another petition which caused a similar dis-
turbance. Fearing they had been in too great haste in the former petition.
the slareholders decided to be more deliberate this time. For six weeks the
House was turned into a turmoil of furious men, who respected neither gray
hairs nor pure character. lt was a trying time for the old patriot: his weak
body could scarcely endure the strain, but his abilities made him more than a
match for the whole House. There he stood. alone, not to defend himself.

Fork Union stands on a little hill.
Beautiful, elegant, stately and still:
There are many buildings-great and small,
But the greatest of these is Hatcher Hall.
Now if you've never heard of its pleasures and joys,
.lust inquire of one of the boys.
The mess hall is an addition no more,
And occupies only a part of the ground floor.
For there's plenty of room for your heart to thump
And make you feel that you look like a churnp:
The coffee is golden, the beek steak rare,
And love-sick boys are hoarding there.
Lives of cadets all remind us.
VV e should pay no heed to books.
But, in passing, leave behind us
Interlinings in our books 2
Interlinings with another
Toiling hard midst grief and pain,
Some forlorn and flunking brother,
Reading ne'er shall Hunk again.

Friday. funn' 4171.
Listen! It is martial music we hear. The cadets are returning from
their annual encampment. The Battalion marches into the campus weary
and dusty from their four day stay at Camp Perkins. Gladly the boys dis-
card their packs and make a grand rush for the shower baths. They realize
that "joy cometh in the morning" after a good nights rest in the barracks
upon the good old bunk.
Safzirday, 111116 5111.
Parents and friends are arriving in large numbers to spend a few days
to witness The Finals.
The first thing of interest to every one is the competitive drill, to see
who wins the medal for the Best Drilled Cadet. The contest was close be-
tween James, ul. A. XVilkins, Bobbett and C. A. libeling, Ir. The military
judges unanimously agreed to present the medal to C. A. Ebeling, Jr. The
senior class once more carried off the honors.
The oratorical and declamatory contests were held in the Baptist church
at S o'clock. Those who took part in these contests were the following:
Jean Val ,lean and the Bishop ........................ ...... D . M. XYilkins
A Soldier's Dream ...,............,............... ........ ,,..,........ L . R. Hall
Universal Peace ....................... ..............,......, ...,. G . B. Ferguson
America's Greatest Menace ...... .......... H . Roe Bartle
The Flag ...........................,.............................................................................. -I. L, Todd
The judges placed the honors upon L. H. Hall for the declamation and
G. B. Ferguson in oratory.
Sznzday, June 6fl1.
The Battalion held its last church formation. This time it was to hear
the baccalaureate sermon which was delivered by the Rev. R. H. Pitt, D. D..
:fiifii TH E SKi-ian ISN Ea F
:x:. if If 2-TE?' Z-
of Richmond, Editor of the Religious Herald. His subject was "Fellowship"
which was a helpful sermon and did much good to the large congregation.
:Xt 7 :SO P. M. the animal vesper service was held on the campus in charge
of Rev. I.. XV. Walton, D. D., President of the Board of Trustees. The vesper
service is one that the cadets always enjoy and this year it was a most in-
dltlllllitly, fzme' fflz.
The morning and afternoon were devoted to the Annual Field Meet. To
say that it was interesting is putting it mildly for the large number of con--
testants showed that it was going to be the most enthusiastic field meet ever
held at Fork Union. Coach Pitt was in his glory and with the assistance
of other members of the faculty, put life into the events. It was decided
that the events should come under the head of Senior and Junior events.
This gives the younger cadets a chance to make good with those of their own
size and age. .Xll cadets over 16 years of age were placed in the Senior
events and those under 16 were known as the Juniors' Coach Pitt gave a
medal to the one making the most points among the Seniors and Mrs. S. D.
Bartle gave the medal for the juniors. The winner of the Senior medal was
J. Curtis Fray. C. Curtis Thompson was only one point behind the winner.
For the Juniors, Leslie N. Powers won the medal with Stewart Fitzhugh a
T110 Junior-Svfzior Rvcejvtzkuz. g
The old chapel never looked more beautiful and attractive than on this
night. The decorations were glorious and caused much comment. Mrs.
N. Perkins with her committee worked hard to make the room attractive
and her efforts were successful. The reception was a very informal affair.
but it was the best reception ever held in the institution. My, how the boys
did give the school yells. The visitors were elated to see the wonderful school
spirit displayed by the cadets.
Lieut. Alvah B. Monds, president of the Junior class, in well chosen
words, delivered the Farewell address to the Seniors. Capt. R. Nelson Smith.
president of the class of 1920, very fittingly responded.

At last the closing day had crime, a day the cadets had heen lwoking
forward to for some time. hut when it came there was sadness mingled with
the joy. They all realized that snme of them would never see each other
again. The seniors wwuld now hid farewell tw their .Xlma Mater.
The Battalifmn formed for the last time un the parade gmiiinl. The line
Of march was fnrnled and the march to the church for the cumniencement
exercises was very spectacular. The Duard uf Trustees lead the parade. the
Faculty followed, with the graduates next and then the hattaliun.
,Xt the church the program was in charge df Col. N. -I. Perkins. The
valedictory address was given hy John A. Paan and it was a masterpiece.
Different memhers of the faculty presented the medals uf lnmur wdn hy the
cadets. The Rev, T. Claggett Skinner. ll IJ., ill: Riclnnuml, delivered the
commencement address, using for his suhject "The Making df a Klan."
At the close, taps were sounded. XYhile the culurs were heing furled. and
with the last note the president declared the session df l9l9-20 closed.
The end had come.

A Farewell Word
Our task is completed. The Skirmisher is yours. XYe hope you will
enjoy its contents. lVe l1ave been rather slow in getting this issue out, but
so many complications have arisen that our task has been 21 difficult one.
Nevertheless, we hope that tl1e history herein will prove a great help to you
and tl1at the book will find a place on your library shelves and that in years
to come you can look over its pages and recall to your meniory your days at
dear old Fork Union: the days when the wonderful school spirit and friend-
ship were displayed. lt will recall 501116 pleasant and unpleasant things, but
with it all, we know tl1at many things in it will cause you to smile.
As members of the Senior class, now bidding farewell to our Alma
Mater, we hope tl1at in the Years to come there will still be this grand school
spirit in the hearts of the cadets. the spirit that will cause us to make any
sacrifice for the old school. lfork Union is forging its way into the lead as
a Military .Xcademy and we are expecting great things from it in the future.
The students make the school. They carry its reputation i11 their hands and
we hope tl1at not a cadet will do a thing to cause reproach to come upon the
school. May it ever be that when outsiders will see ll lfork L'nion uniform
that they can say with pride, "that cadet is from lfork Union." May you
always be loyal and true to the cadets-past, present or future-and to the
lYith tl1e new improvements being made the appearance and acconnno-
dation will be much better. Snead Hall will he a new location and remodeled,
The mess hall will be enlarged and new quarters over it. Last year the mess
hall was over-crowded but next year it will be much more pleasant. Other
improvements will be made and so as the year will pass away Fork Union will
be better, stronger and more attractive than ever.
So again let me say. let us all he true and loyal to the dear old school. and
never do a thing to injure it, but do only those things that will upbuild. May
we ever live so that Fork Union Military Acadeiny can point its finger with
pride at each and every one of us and say "This is my boy."
In closing. I desire to thank each and every one for tl1e help given
me to make The Skirmisher a success. livery member of the Board of Editors
did their best as well as the business manager and his assistant. Members of
the Faculty and student body deserve mucl1 praise for what they have done.

Dr. Hatcher gabe dis job ter me:
l'se swep' de halls an' toted in de coal.
On de square, a good janitor I'se tried to lie.
As de days an' years has gone rollin' Ivy,
I'se seen de lmoys come an' go:
Dey has been mighty good ter me.
I guess dat why I lub dem so.
Somehow I reckon it's kindness
What keeps dis old world a-goin'g
lt's sulnpthing what keeps you smilin',
An' de coals of lub a-glowink
Now I'se growin' old an' gray,
A good nigger I tries ter be:
An' as long as I lib in dis here life,
Kindness is gwine ter he my "pl1iloserpl1y."

Stone had to leave the class, so at the beginning of the session 1917 l,ieut.
Robert Nelson Smith was elected President, and he has held this responsible
position ever since. The class of 1917 brought to us many bright boys who
have made good marks in li. U. Bl. A., and who have received high military
otlices. They will leave liork Union this year with honors and leave many
friends in the school, also the vicinity. who bid them Godspeed as they go
from F. U. M. AX. The year 1913-19 also brought many newcomers to F.
U. M. some of them being hluniors. so of course they joined the class of
'20 who have been studying so hard since the year 1916. This year was a
hard one on account of the sickness that broke out in the school in the be-
ginning of the session, but we. by the help of the many physicians and nurses,

Senior Class Prophecy
August 2, 1935.
Your letter of .Iune 50th just received and I certainly was glad to hear
from you once again. I arrived here in Richmond after a six weeks' trip.
You know I was telling you in my last letter that I was going to visit as
many members of the old class of '20 as possible: so now that I have done
so I want to tell you about the boys and what their fortunes in life have been
in the fifteen years since graduation. But first of all, old pal. I want to con-
gratulate you on your election as partner in Greenwood and Bales law firm.
I always knew you would come out on top as a lawyer.
My first stop was in Newport News. There I found Throm and Gray.
C. M.. engaged in a most successful practice in dentistry. Griffiths is also in
Newport News and is one of the most prominent architects in the city. Rae
is near there specializing in horticulture. Berger owns one of the largest drug
companies in the city and is considered by all as a great pharmacist. Berger
told me that XYitten and Tilman have just gone out to the Philippines
under the U. S. Government to survey some land owned by our Government.
They must be great civil engineers.
From Newport News I went to Norfolk as I wanted to see Xlderson.
He went through the Medical College with great honors and has his general
practice rooms in The Monroe Building. I-Iere I came across both Nash
and Cooke. P. D., who have good practices as lawyers.
By the way. while I was in Ohio I heard Bartle's band perform. That boy
is a second Sousa as well as a coriiet soloist. He told me that Curt Thompson
was at the head of a large hospital in China and greatly thought of by all.
XVell Smity, from Norfolk I went back to Charlottesville. There I found
Eubank and Elliot. Both are getting on prosperously as mechanical engineers.
Cummings is on the faculty at the University of Virginia as Professor of
Psychology. There I learned that Jennings had graduated from XVest

Point and had already the oftice of captain in the regular army. Qld Fray
is running a large electrical plant and has proven to be a great electrician.
Down in Roanoke I found my old pal Tompkins but he was no longer
the frisky "carrol" of F, U. M. .X. He is some lawyer. He told me .that
libeling has become the head of a great inanufacturing' company in New
York and is really coining money. Hall is in Roanoke and is the president
uf a large real estate company. Don XVilkins went through Cornell like a
whirlwind and is known all over Roanoke and Southwest Virginia as a
In Lynchburg I caine across Lankfordl he is a scientihc farmer with a
large farm just out of that city. Scribner is also a farmer on the scientitic
idca and both are getting on prosperously. Old lf. 1. Turner is working
on a new invention uf his in the electrical line and it promises to make a
XYell, Smity, I surely did enjoy the trip, only wish you could have been
with ine. XYrite me a line when you have time: would like to hear from
you again. '

Junior Class History
'HE Class of '21 made its debut to Fork Union society on
September 18, 1917. Out of the class formed then none are
in our midst at present.
ff! Xlfhen the boys met for the year 1918-19 it was dis-
covered that we were to have in our presence, Nat Early, the
'm ilf i only one who was at F. U. M. A. the preceding year. Aside
from Mr. Early, the class was made up of new fellows or Rats, as they are
1 am sure that none of my class-mates, who were here in 1918-19 will
ever forget that memorable night when the news of the signing of the Armis-
tice was received here. To commemorate this event shells were issued to
each uf us on the day following, and we were supposed to fire three volleys.
The volleys were not quite the success that was expected and Fork Llnion
came very near having a casualty list all its own without the presence of
Bohannon and G. C. Thomas represented the class in baseball.
XYhen we returned this year we found that only a few of the men who
had been with us last year had returned, namely: Bohannan, Early, Cosby,
D1 izier, Monds and the chronicler himself. The class was duly organized
and the following ollicers were elected: A. B. Monds, President, C. B. Fer-
guson, Vice-President: R. M. Stone, Secretary: C. Todd. Treasurer:
H. Cosby, Prophet, and myself, Historian. At present there are thirty mem-
bers of the class, which is the largest number the class of '21 has enrolled
in any of its years.
This year in football we were ably represented by Monds, A. B., Colonna,
Harris, S. M., Jones, L. M., Huddle, Harmon and McCallum. jones, L. M.,
deserves special mention because of the fact that he broke his collar bone while
lighting on the gridiron for F. U. M. A.
In the cross country run H. Cosby won honor for our class by taking
first place with the record of 291 miles in 12 minutes. Hanson, Thomas, C.
G., Ferguson, Cosby, Todd, Bowman and Jones, L. M., were among the
number who made the Junior Class basket-ball team the success that it is.

The next day I took a trip to IVashington to hear a great debate which
was to take place in the Senate. I recognized four of the speakers at once.
Ilobbitt, who was representing his district from the State of North Caro-

On the train from XYashington to Richmond, I saw old "Blondie" Davis,
who was on furlough from his ship which was lying in Hampton Roads.
lle told me that he was Radio lingineer on the ,Xdmiral's llagship. XVl1ile
in Richmond I ran up with jimmie Todd, who had graduated from XVest
Point and was then Major in the regular army. One day I happened to he
looking up some of niy old friends in the directory when I ran across the
name of my old pal I.acy, but who now was IJr. I,acy, with one of the largest
patron lists of any doctor in Richmond. On Broad Street I saw Neblett.
He and little Coleman had graduated from the L'niversity of Virginia, and
were now practicing medicine, each in his home town, wlth great success.
Having to stay over Sunday in Richmond. I went into a very line Baptist
Church. The pastor turned out- to he no other than nly old friend Pankey.
He told me that "Preacher" Hyatt had gone over to Africa as a missionary.
Leaving Richmond the next place that I stopped was in Charlottesville.
Here I noticed trucks passing bearing the names of my old school pals,
Harmon, Early and Harris. These three had gone in for scientiiic farming
on a large scale. and were now three of the richest farmers of the State.
Going into one of the drug stores, I recognized Ewing, as he turned towards
me. He was an electrical engineer of whom I had heard in several countries
of South America, during my travels. He told me that he had just returned
from the tnow widely knownl If. U. M. I-X., and that one of the physicians
there was our classmate, Allen. I went from Charlottesville to Lynchburg.
In the waiting room I ran into Turner who was touring the country with a
world-famous jazz band. He told me where I could find the office of Huddle,
another of our graduates and also a great engineer. Huddle had seen one of
the tirm of Lipps, Stephens and Bohannan, great mine owners of the great
Southwest the day before, in fact he had a contract with them.
Having seen and heard of the great success of my old classmates and
becoming tired of "globe trotting." I decided that I would settle down in mv
own coming city and do something for it and mankind. i

Sophomore Class History
t-.453 N September. 18. 1918, our class held its first' meeting and
'F organized with -I. L. lhllon as president. llns year seven-
jf igyb xm teen men from last years class returned and it looked as
though we were to be the leading class in this year's school.
:QM Early in the lfall of 1919 we held a meeting to get
WN" 30 organized and the following men were elected: A. XV1lkins,
of Newport News, Va., president: XY. R. Richmond, Norton, Va., vice-presi-
dent: R. C. Anthony, Staunton, Va., secretary, and XV. C. Charles, of New-
port News, Va., treasurer.
NVilkins made an excellent leader and in his easy going way brought
our class to the front in many ways.
ln the athletic line we had our share of men. Xlfilkins was captain of
the Football Team and Richmond was one of the stars of the game, also
Metcalfe was letter man of the football. ln baseball we had Bottimore, Lipps,
Stephens, R. li. and Richmond. Basket-ball, Bottimore and Metcalfe were
on the team. In the cross country run we tied with Seniors for first place,
each making 18 points. The men that helped to win these points were Powers,
L. N., Parker, Cooper, Geo., and Cowan. ln the Track Team, Parker was
one of the leading stars, while Leslie Powers won the junior medal for the
best athlete in school. Xlfhat class can make as good a showing?
ln a military way our class stood out well for the Sophomores furnished
one top sergeant and live other sergeants. XVatch us next year and see
the number of commissioned officers that will be taken from our number.
NVe have fourteen members of the class who never received a demerit
for the whole year. Did we have any to walk extra duty, did you ask? Oh
yes, a few. Look over our roll and you can pick them out. My, how they did
hate to get up in the morning!
A large number of the men expect to be back next year and with the new
men that will come and join our class. as there are always a large number of
new men to enter the Junior class. we will have one of the best classes in the
history of the school.

Sophomore Class Prophecy
,LW OPIQNIQID the purple silkhap of the tent and stepped inside.
,Et .X beautiful Egyptian maiden was seated before a low table
X W covered with a crimson scarf. She sat in the center of the
Lf tent. clothed in beautiful satins and jewelry, and luxurious
f sm' 9 rugs adorned the floor of the tent, while couches of the
Oriental type lined the sides. As I entered she spoke to me
saying "I, .Xdora, the Prophetess, can tell you what is to come. Ask, what
you wish to know." Bewildered, not to say alarmed. my thoughts went to
my school mates of the class of l922, so I asked her to foretell the destiny
of each one.
Ilnraptured I listened while she foretold great careers for each of them.
"Your President, Nllilkins and Charles are to go in the tobacco business. They
will control the tobacco industry of the United States. Lay will be the owner
of a circuit of the leading hardware stores of the country. Ashley and
Cooper will be the owners of a large meat packing concern in Chicago. XVil-
lard Cooke and Cowan are to be the founders of a great hospital and them-
selves the greatest doctors of the age. Cootes will become a great lawyer
known the world over. Bottimore and XVilbur Johnson are to become the
greatest scientists of history, and owners of a large observatory. Kennon
will be known as a power in XYall Street and his vast estates will be famous
for their grandeur. Lipps and Mitchell will be owners of several large
ranches in the NVest. Metcalfe and Parker will be the owners of the largest
railroad in the world. L. H. Powers, and Richmond will be owners of cele-
brated Alaskan gold mines. A. lf. Stephens and Tignor will be widely known
car manufacturers, and their cars will be synonymous for beauty and worth.
L. R. Powers and Underdunk shall be the greatest cotton exporters of the
United States. David XYoodson will be known for his vast sugar planta-
tions in Cuba. XYatkins. lYhite and H. R. Thomas shall be founders of a
great institution of learning in Fluvanna County. lVarren will be a noted
shipbuilder and will receive vast contracts from the leading nations of the
Kin Ho Chung will be the founder of the Chung Institution of Learning,
and Relief XVork in distant China, where he will do a great work. As the
Prophetess finished she looked up from the hour-glass before her, and asked.
"Is there anything else?" But I had already begun to grow faint and dizzy,
and seemed to be falling, which I really was, for I found myself on the floor.
where I had slipped from my chair in my sleep.

their best friend. This was all new to me. and I began to think that perhaps
these were the so-called "Rats" I saw them all going toward one building.
This, I heard some one say. was the Armory. I went over for I understood
that is where I could secure any information needed. They were all in line.
and entering a room, which said Deans Office. at once I knew that they were
all matriculating. and I must follow suit. ,
For the next several days the "Rats" were like a flock of lost sheep.
when'on September 2-lth Col. Perkins issued orders to organize the class.
which would be known from then on as the class of "ZS," Through the kind-
ness of Major Roe Bartle, the class was called together, and it was discovered
a fine bunch of fellows were to become members of this class. After instruc-
tion in regard to class organization, the election of officers proceeded. A
better selection could never have been made outside of the Historian. These
men were to be our leaders throughout the year. Cadet I. Edwin Saunders, of
Richmond. was elected President. He has proven a competent leader, and
the class fully realizes that the success of the class of "23" is due to his
untiring efforts. H. Rl. XYaldron. of Bedford City, was elected Vice-Presi-
dent. after a close vote. He has aided President Saunders materially in
building up our class. Full of pep and school spirit to start with, he has
succeeded in placing the "Rat" class on top in the Rooting game. Secretary
and Treasurer, Corporal J. E. Stockley, of Lynchburg, has performed his
duties faithfully and well. Prophet, Cadet Hope Powers. in his prophee
cies has surely prophesied wonderful things for our noble class.

The class has had its weekly meetings all of which have been well attended
by most of our members. The class has developed wonderfully in athletics
this year. It has backed every organization in the school. This class of "ZS"
has always sent more representatives than any other class to any match game
away from home. Always takes things in hand in our local athletic rallies.
Several class banquets have been held throughout the year, and we have made
great progress for educational as well as from a social standpoint.

Freshman Class Prophecy
N12 line warm day in I0-IO I determined to take a long trip.
f I got my airplane in good condition and started. 'lhe next
few hours found me sailing over a large city and deciding
Wg 'N,, to land I descended in a large park. The lirst person I met
w as -lg I.. Saundeis, who had been president of the l:lCsl'l
S0 man tlass of l9l9-20. After shaking hands I asked lnm
what he was doing and he told me he was Yice-President of one of the large
banks. He also told me of several other members of the class that were in
the city. vl. Ii. Stockley was a thriving business man and Heyl and NValdron
were ministers in two of the largest churches. I left him a little later and
went on to another city. There I found several friends. kl. XY. Smith

R. B. Martsch was a noted hunter and trapper who had just come in from
the Maine IYoods. Brinkley was an eye specalist and Bundy was a doctor
specializing in surgery. Haskell and Hart have large department grocery
stores in the city and I,illiston is the head of a chain of tea stores located in
several important places. Traveling west I came to a small town and found
M. P. German mayor. He told me that Sidney Taylor who had been the
smallest member of our class was making good as a railroad head, and that
R. G. Porter, who was another small member, is running for Congress with
XY. T. Lewis. He also said that XYitt had a large business of his own and
Ishmael was our ambassador to .Xssyria.
I went in a department store in another city and found C. B. Johnson
president with Ifitzhugh and Smithson as partners. Tignor and XVilliarns
were doctors and Davis is a prominent lawyer. Mitchell is a well-known
dentist. Barnes is vice-president of a railroad and Ii. Crump owns a factory
that manufactures passenger airplanes for the government. Reed and Vance
both have pharmacies in the city and Cain and King have a business together.

having been elected Captain for the 1919 squad by his former team mates.
From the First time the men had a work out on September 19th, until the
last down in the Blackstone game of November 27th, there was but one word
that could be heard while training, or in scrimmage or in championship
matches, that was "iight" Fork Union has never before in the history
of the school turned out a team with the fight of the squad of 'lFl. .Xfter a
hard season of training, we journeyed to Richmond to take on our old rivals.
hl. M. H. S. This was on October llth, 1920, and the entire student body
accompanied our team on this trip. The team was determined to win
that game or die. Such a light had never been seen by il. M. H. S. before.
The old Red and Blue came within live yards of bl. Rl. ll. S. goal three
times. but fumbles proved costly, while hl. M. H. S. never were near our
thirty yard line. The game ended in a tie, but it was clearly seen at this game
that liork Union had a team that could easily be termed a prospective cham-
pionship eleven, although very light. After we had tied J. M. H. S.. we
determined to take down what ever might confront us. That happened to
be McGuire's University School on October lSth. Coach Smith brought his
squad up to old Fork Union and returned with a defeat of 20 to 6 at the
hands of our cadets. This was a hard fought game from start to finish.
McGuire's scored on a fumble, which had proved almost fatal to us in the
.lohn Marshall game. But McGuire's were never able to make a first down
during the entire game.
The Richmond College Reserves seem to think they had a team which
no Prep school team could touch. So on October 24th, Coach Pitt journeyed
to his Alma Mater with the old Red and Blue squad, returning with a 9 to O
victory, and all Richmond pronounced Coach Pitt's team a wonder. XYe

by all a "snap" and on October Slst the squad took a trip to the University
playing C. H. S. on l.ambert's tield, defeating them, with half our second
squad by a score of 34 to O.
ln the meantime, C1 wach Tom Miller, assistant coach of Richmond Col-
lege, was determined to trim us with his college scrubs, so on November
l3th he brought them to olfl liork Union gridiron. They were full of conti-
dence, but no more full of confidence was Richmond College Reserves than
F. U. KI. .X squad, bubbling over with the iight. This game was exciting
from start to finish. lt was a light right through but old Red and Blue
added another victory to their credit, by the score of 12 to 6, Richmond Col-
lege scoring on an intercepted lateral pass.
This brought us up to that wonderful Blackstone game. lt was all that
could be heard for the week before. The squad was putting all they had
into their training, and the whole student body was behind them strong. It
was on November 27th at 3 :SO at Boulevard field in Richmond that the last
and most exciting game of the season took place, the game that would decide
who were the champions of the State. Both teams were confident, the eyes
of all the sportsmen throughout the state were played upon this eventful game.
ln the first half Fi irk Union made a touchdown and kicked the goal from an on
sidekick. but to our sad fate this was ruled void, leaving the score a tie at the
beginning of the second half. ln the first few minutes' play, Blackstone placed
a drop kick from the 55-yard line, through the goal post, this being the
closest they had ever gotten to our goal. ln the last three minutes' play
Fork Union was on Blackstones hve-yard line, but when the final whistle
blew, it meant that old Red and Blue had gone down with a mighty fight
and had lost the championship 3 to O. lt was said by all to have been the
hardest fought game ever played in Richmond. Public sentiment and papers
declared Fork Union to have out-played her opponents in every department.
although meeting defeat, and losing the championship at such a small margin
liveryone was happy and thoroughly satisfied with the season that had closed

This year our Varsity Basket-Ball Team made a very fine showing, this
being the first year that Fork Union has turned out a Varsity Squad in a
number of years. The team was composed of Metcalfe, Center, of Graham,
Va.. former Graham High School star. He proved to be an excellent center,
out jumping all his opponents and was specially noticed for his tight of never
lfray, Captain of the squad, of Advance Mills. Ya., was naturally a
wonder at forward, his goals were all sure and accurate. Bottimore, of
Tazewell, played well at forward, and Rea and Tilman, both of Crozet, Va..
were the two best Prep Guards in the state. This alone speaks for itself.
Tilman was all over the floor at one time and Rea being stationary guard,
let very few balls pass through our opponent's goal. lValne, substitute
forward, played in several games, and put up a beautiful showing each time.
lYilkins, ID. M., substitute guard, was indeed an excellent guard: we are
looking for great things from him in College Basket-Ball. Hanson, our sub-
stitute center, displayed great skill in this position.
Class Basket-Ball proved very popular and kept up much spirit during
the cold winter months of January and February. No little interest was
taken in the Basket-Ball class league.
lYe won from the following institutions: Blackstone Military Academy,
Chatham Training School, second game: Benedictine Military College: Cham-

National Bank, of Richmond: Richmond College Reserves. first game: Dan-

XVe lost to the following schools: Chatham Training School, nrst game:
Richmond College Reserves, second game: Randolph-Macon Academy.
This gave us the state championship in Basket-Ball. The work done
again by Coach Pitts shows that he is a good coach and we are proud of him.
