Whether this training has been ade- quate, it remains for others to decide, nevertheless, we feel a great pride in our Alma Mater. In this volume we have attempted to capture and present by Words and pictures our experiences, which to the casual reader may appear trivial enough, but to him who has spent a portion of his life within these Walls, the incidents recorded herein will always be remembered and cherished. If our efforts will serve to bring back old memories, to cause our fellows to live over again their days at F. U. M. A., we will be amply paid for our efforts and our purpose will have been fulfilled.

Graduation! It does not seem possible! We cannot realize that we are to be free at last from the everlasting wail of a bugle, and the de- mands of instructors and officers. This, our Senior year, has come and gone so swiftly that we are finding it difficult to convince ourselves that our days at old Fork Union are really at an end. When we arrived back on the campus in September and took our places as the so-called "dignified seniors," we made many plans and resolutions as to the great things that we were going to accomplish during this, our last and most important year at F. U. M. A. We wonder whether we have come up to the standard which We set for ourselves. We have made a supreme effort to make Pork Union an honor school, and have succeeded. There is not a man in the corps who has not, at some time or other during the past four years, voiced his profane disgust at having to remain "penned up" at F. U. M. A. But where are these gripers now? Find me one! It cannot be done! Whether we have griped and complained in the past or not, now that we are leaving we fully realize what Pork Union Military Academy, and the things it stands for, has come to mean to us. It has given us a foundation as firm as the Rock of Gibraltar upon which to build our future lives. There is not a man among us whose heart does not ache at the thought of leaving for- ever this grandold school that has been our home for four short years. The friendships that we have made here are the kind that count, and the gap that leaving these pals behind in our lives will be hard to replace. But we cannot let sentiment hold us back: we've bridges to build, pictures to paint, and strange lands to explore. Our place now is out in the world where we shall shoulder our share of life's burdens. Whatever success the years may bring to us, we shall owe, to a great ex- tent, to the training received here. And now "Taps" is about to be sounded upon our careers as cadets, we are passing on to the Class of '32 one last com- mand, 'i'Carry On." R. A. BACON, Historian.

Private, Company C Fifty-nine FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY NE RAINY DAY in September about three years ago, Fork Union was blessed with our enrollment-at least we thought so-but we soon found out different. Due to the pressure brought to bear upon us by the Sophomores, we soon realized that when someone yelled "Rat" it was time for us to travel in that direction: and with each. individual trying to be the first, the rush caused several causualties each time. We were continually busy and the first thing we knew i'Taps" was blowing at Old Fork Church and our "Rat" year was over. After waiting impatiently for three months to pass so we could get back and return some good for evil, we began our second year. We were now up- perclassmen and did ou.r very best to see that not a single "Rat" enjoyed him- self. Some of us proved to be Military Geniuses and were made Corporals, and some. outstanding, as high as Sergeants, but in the long run each suffered a great deal during the spring, having two conflicting elements, Government In- spection and Spring Fever.

FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY SGPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY HE FIRST BUGLE announcing the opening of school in the fall of '30 found us assembled-a motley crowd of all descriptions. Rats of every propor- tion-tall, short, fat, and slim, and all shades, due to basking in the sum- mer sun. The first year was consumed in making us first class P. U. M. A. cadets. lt required a full year for us to assume a military attitude and lose the greenness which we brought with us to our institution. We endured much in the hands of the old men, and longed to become their equals. This year finds us old men. We became aware of our duty, to see that the rats received all the attention that we could give them. The class has developed some wonderful material for the track team, by making the rats run around the circle every day. Altogether the year has been a wonderful success, even in academic work. The military duties are becoming manifold and the class has notified that there will be a general "bucking up." We have to our credit many tricks on the O. C. and in general have accomplished the mission of all Sopho- mores--to discipline rats, be responsible for all practical jokes, and in general raise all the Cain. However, to review the last two years, we have certainly learned what We came here for, discipline, mlitary, and a high academic stand- ing. The last two years have been very successful and we are looking forward to the coming two years with much enthusiasm. Sixty-four 1 931 SFQIRMISHER Sixty-five Z. W.

FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY FRESHMAN CLASS HISTCRY N SEPTEMBER l6TH, we, the class of '34, first stepped onto the campus of our future alma mater. We began strolling around looking over the campus and becoming used to what would be our everyday environment through the coming year. However, it was not long before the upper-classrnen had impressed upon us the very annoying fact that we were only "rats," Soon our highest anticipation was fulfilledg we were issued rifles. Our great joy was turned to grief as soon as we were confronted with the unpleasant job of cleaning them and keeping them clean. Gasoline and rags were used and it was quite evident that numerous nickels would be spent in the future for cleaning material. After a day or so of drill we were ordered to report to the Headmaster, who in turn gave us a slip classifying and dividing into periods our cares for the coming year. We then procured text books, and classes, drill and extra duty started in earnest. Soon after this, sports began and football practice attracted most of our unwilling attention for the next few days, then came the first game with Hampden-Sidney Frosh, whom we proceeded to beat in a very exciting contest. But alas-in victory we tasted defeat. This was the night of the Urat parade." After listening to several old men tell of the horrors of the "rat parade" we were ready to pack up and leave. Finally the pile of wood was packed and we retired to our rooms to await the decorating committee. The old men soon came and left, leaving us a mass of red, White, blue, green, and yellow. We had every thing imaginable painted on our bodies. Then the war dance started around the fire, with towels persuading us to run faster. Speeches were then made by several old men and instructors, and then we were rushed to the showers where we were submerged in cold water until our skins shone. Having survived this we eagerly looked forward to the next game and it wasn't long before we caught the real Ford Union Spirit. Time passes quickly, and with the passing of time came Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, and now we are sorry to say June is crawling up fast. Even though we hate for the year to end we are looking forward with anticipa- tion to the coming year and the experience of being old men. I C. W. MILLER. Sixty-eight 1931 SKIRMISHER Sixty-nine W. H.

It has been a success in its purpose, which is the preparation for high school of those yet too young for this higher grade of work. The Lower School has an enrollment this year of twelve boys ranging in age from ten to fourteen years. They have been the most enthusiastic group on the campus, and have done, as a whole, a better grade of work than the Upper School. The entire group has participated in every branch of athletics offered, which has made them the healthiest group of boys in school. Their physical progress has been remarkable, every boy has gained in weight and stature. The program for next year is to triple the enrollment in this department and add one new faculty member. A new building with separate quarters for these smaller boys is to follow the next year. This building will provide them with their living quarters, their class-rooms and play rooms. The faculty rnem- bers have their quarters in this building also. The future of this unit of organization is very bright in the estimation of all concerned, and its success is an assured fact.

By his leadership many victories Were Won, and in the games that were lost there was no lack of iight and encouragement in "S1im." All through the season he showed remarkable sportsmanship and school spirit. This is "Slim's" third year on the varsity. As Captain this year he has upheld his position in fine style. This has been by far the greatest season in his football career. Next season the Red and Blue team will regret very much not having "Slim" as its leader. W'e hope that the one who takes his place will do even half as much for his team as "Slim" has done. We Wish him luck through remaining years. N ine ty-nine PORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY ,l . , I I f ii ,sg '.r,I5w- COACH W. G. BENTE Coach THIS IS THE first year that Captain Bente has been with us, and to be frank the whole corps hopes that it won't be .his last. Captain "Gus," who is a graduate of University of Richmond, distinguished himself at that institution as a stellar all around man. He came to us this year from Martinsville High School, where he was engaged as instructor and coach. Here at Fork Union, besides instructing in the Science and Business Departments, he is coach of Foot- ball and Track. This season of football was very commendable due to the wonderful coaching given by Captain Bente. We are looking forward to a great track season, and know that it is bound to prove successful. The corps appreciates what you have done for us this year, Captain "Gus," and everyone is looking forward and expecting you to be with us at the opening of school next September. H J. W. SCI-IANA Manager MVANAGER SCI-IANA orr hard working, unheralded man behind the team. His work was not spectacular and he made no fifty yard runs but if he had not played, plogged along and taken able care of all the equipment and details the team would not have been able to make runs and win the game. No one loves the manager, but no one can get along without one and we are too prone to overlook him, seated on the bench u.nable to go in and get into the game. We know Schana as a capable manager and his letter was as much deserved as anyone who fought on old Victory Hill. Good-bye boy we wish we had you back to help the old team in next year's battles. One Hundred 1931 SKIRMISHER " 'Ax .A - -li I i A Y V fl Y- E ip! , ' ' . . , s V 1 ' H, ii JM My I H W "JIMMIE" BOLTON Half back THIS IS BOLTON'S last year at Fork Union. "Jimmie" as he has been nick- named is an all-around athlete and a star in four of our most outstanding sports, Football. Basketball, Baseball, and Track. "Jimmie" put all he has into all the games, winning or losing, and pulls through with the satisfaction that he has done his best. HCHICK' KINZER Quarterback THIS IS "CHICK'S" second year at Pork Union. Last year playing fullback and this year shifted to quarterback, he did part of the kicking and most of the passing. Several times he saved touchdowns by his long punts. "Chick" has made a good record at Fork Union. Last year he was on the second all state prep team and missed the first team by only one vote this year. "Chick" comes from ,Pulaski in Southwest Virginia and is liked by everyone at Pork Union. He is a great football player and we wish him luck wherever he may go. "DOE" SANDS Tackle THIS IS SAND'S second year at the Academy. He has won great popularity among the cadets. He hails from Pulaski and is one of F. U. M. A.'s big men. When it comes to football, "Defense," is his middle name, With his long arms he has broken up many passes and you can't get over Sand's legs. He will probably, some day, become an All American tackle-who knows! We wish him luck. One Himclred One FORK UNIQN MILITARY ACADEMY Y ' 1 -g ' 'i Illini W Nm .

Although carefree and happy go lucky, at the beginning of a game, through it all "Chet" is "there," a real "bone-breaker." Many oppo- nents were disappointed when they tried his side of the line. Either on the defense or offense "Chet" is always an outstanding player. A lover of any- thing that is rough-and-ready, that's "Chet" We are lucky to have him with us next year. "B" KINZER Halfback THIS IS "B.'S" second year at Fork Union. His first year he didn't make the varsity but he never gave up. He kept fighting for a position which he secured doing his best. "B" was absent from most of our games due to injuries but this never has interferred with his longing to get into the game. His brilliant showing at Newport News shows that he is a nice backiielcl man. We are looking forward to his return next year. PURVIS End PURVIS IS NOT GIFTED with a big make-up, but is always right in the midst of the fighting. He is always one of the first into action and dangerous on all end plays. This is Purvis' second year of football and he has developed into a perfect linesman. Purvis plays end and you seldom see a man go around his end without being tackled. We hate to see Shim leave us, but feel sure he will make some college a very valuable man next year. One Hu'ncZ'red Two 1931 SKIRIYIIQHER I i 12 f ' ' I I H ii .ii in , . . 'W "JAKE" DOZIER Guard T1-IIS IS JAKE'S second year with us and no one will deny that he is one of our most valuable assets. By his splendid work this year Fork Union was able to withstand the attack of much heavier teams. His Work did not go by unnoticed as he was placed on the second All-State team. Jake leaves Fork Union as a good football player and the college that he goes to will receive a good man. Good luck to you Jake. "JOHNNIE" HYMAN Halfback "JCI-INNIE" I-IAILS from Tampa, Florida. This is his second year at Pork Union, and he has proved his ability as an athlete by making his letter in three major sports. Last year he was a strong upholder of the reserves, and this year has Won a place as halfback on the-varsity. By his lightning runs he gained many yards for his team, and was always in the thick of the battle. We hope to have him back with us next year, and if he does as goodplaying then as he has in the past, We are sure of at least one good man to fight for the Red and Blue. "PETE" BURGESS ' End BURGESS DID NOT come to Fork Union as a great football player but proved to be one this year on our first team as end. His drive was one of assurance, and when he hit his opponent he hit him hard. He successfully carried out his part in making Ford Union's line a stone Wall. Burgess is a senior and the eleven will surely miss his services next year.

"WILL" QUARLES Hnlfback WILLARD IS A PRODUCT of Charlottesville, Virginia. Last year he was one of our strongest resources and this year at halfback position he played a great part in bringing old Red and Blue to the front. Quarles always fights until the final whistle blows. F. U. M. A. is eagerly looking forward to his return next year for we desire to have another strong team. "MAC" GASQUE Fullback MAC CAME TO US from the good old Tar Heel State, Carolina. A little late, but not too late to display his ability as an able fullback. He is an earnest player and can be relied upon to get his man thus giving wonderful support to the backfield. He carries the ball with the speed and grit that makes him a terror to any husky line. Giving his all with the best of spirit has won him an excellent place with the foresome. We like his style and spirit so here's hoping we will be fortunate in having him with us again next year. ' "GENE" Boom Centre THIS IS BODE'S irst year at Fork Union and he hails from Alexandria. Vir- ginia, "the town that produces football men." Bode has not only held up his town's reputation but in fact has raised it. Having had much experience in the sport of football and coming to Fork Union with an excellent record to his credit did not make him loose his old love for the game when he donned the KCOntinued on next pagej One H1md9"ed,'Fom' 19 3 1 SKIRMISHER g F. U. M. A. uniform. Always in the game fighting hard and clean are the qualities which made him one of the most versatile players on the team. Bode graduates this year and plans to enter Georgetown University next September, Good luck old boy and much success through the coming years. ROMAN Guard ROMAN ENTERED SCHOOL a lit-tle bit late and did not get to play in the first three games. He came out for the team determined to win a place on the Varsity and he certainly did. After his iirst game at guard he was picked to play that position the rest of the season. Roman hails from Baltimore and he doesn't care who knows it. He won his varsity "F" and if nothing interferes he expects to be back with us again next year. SUMMARY OF FOOTBALL SEASON UR SEASON OPENED on September the l7th with Hampden-Sidney Fresh- men. Both teams were evenly matched until the second quarter, then Fork Union began to get together. "Chick" Kinzer was the big gun until he was removed from the game due to serious injury. The whole line played good ball while Bolton and Quarles played good in the backiield. The Hnal whistle blew with Fork Union leading 22-O. The next Friday the team went to Newport News to play a night game with the Apprentice School. In this game Bolton and Gunter were outstanding players in the backlield while Gay was the outstanding man in the line. The game ended O-0. . The following Saturday we played Fishburne. Both teams were fighting hard every minute until just before the half. Fishburne threw a forty-yard pass and gained a touchdown, the only score of the game. Hall and Sands were out- standing as they stopped many plays headed for the line. The next week we met Richmond Freshmen. Our team was outweighed but nevertheless they put up a fight that we are proud off. The game ended with Richmond winning 16-0. The next Saturday we played Augusta, this was a hard game for anyone to loose, every man played his best. There were no outstanding players as the whole team played well. The score was 7-O in favor of Augusta. Our next game was with Danville, all through the game both teams played their best. It seemed that Fork Union couldn't get started due to the fact that Danville got all the breaks. One H zmdred Five FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY The next week we played Hargrave in one of the best games this year on Victory Hill. During the first quarter both teams fought in Mid-field. The11 Pork Union opened up with a pass, another play and then a touchdown. The next score was made by line plunges. Captain Gay was outstanding in the line while the four backfield men fought hard. After working strenuously during the following week getting prepared Fork Union journeyed to Staunton to play one of its most important games of the season. Both teams fought hard until the second quarter. Fork Union scored first in the second quarter and Staunton scored later. Both teams scored in the third quarter making the score 13-13. The biggest thrill and the luck- iest break for Staunton came when they threw a long pass which was caught by the Pork Union safety man and advanced to Staunton's one-yard line and the next play it was advanced to the one foot line. As Pork Union was lining up for the next play the final whistle blew leaving the score a tie. After tying Staunton, Fork Union played their final game of the season with Blackstone. It was a hard fought game from the start until the final whistle, but Fork Union proved they were a strong team by their line plays and passes. The final whistle blew with Fork Union leading 34 to 7. ln the line Captain Gay, Sands and Hall showed good work and in the backfield Hyman, Bolton and Kinzer did fine.

GAY, of Charlottesville, Virginia, is one of the most outstanding athletes in Fork Union's history. His basketball career is one which will not be forgotten at F. U. M. A. This is his third year as an outstanding player. He was captain of his team in "Bl" and for 2 years an "All State" forward. He is the life of the team and is responsible for many of its victories. He has to his credit also 3 years of football, being captain of the team and "All State" end. His good playing, both in basketball and football has won for him our admiration. , He is believed by several coaches, who have come in contact with him, to be one of the most outstanding players of the games. F. U. M .A. wouldn't be surprised to see his name in the "All American" column. "JIMMIE" BOLTON JIMMIE hails from Fries, Virginia. He is admired byall who know him and the school will hate to see him leave. As company captain, as halfback and as forward on the basketball team, he just can't be beat. When Jimmie gets the ball and starts down the court, we can always count on 2 more points. Jimmie is a senior this year and we hate to give him up, but "here's luck," wherever you go next year we are sure you will be on top. "CHICK" KINZER "CHICK" KINZER, one of Fork Union's most outstanding basketball players, has completed his second year on the varsity team. He has fought many hard batltes in his basketball career defending dear old "Red and Blue." "Chick" is noted as one of the all-around athletes of Fork Union. We were very sorry at the beginning of the football season when he received a frac- tured shoulder, rendering him unable to play in several games. However, he started OE in basketball as good as ever. Fork Union's starring guard. This is Chick's last year and we are wishing him luck in the future. ELMER PURVIS PURVIS, one of Fork Union's outstanding athletes, is a four-letter man, foot- ball, basketball, track and baseball. He was also captain of the "3l" track team. In basketball he covered the floor just like a carpet, fighting for dear old F. U. M. A. We are proud of him and will suffer his loss greatly. Purvis was "All State" center in "3O" and high scorer of the team. His scoring ability was the mainstay of the team. Besides his athletic ability, he has a fine personality which makes every- bpdy like him. F. U. M. A. wishes him the best of luck at the University of irgmia. S. B. KINZER S. B. KINZER, brother of Chick Kinzer, hails from Pulaski, Virginia, This is his second year here and we are glad to know he will be with us again next year. At the beginning of the basketball season, he was handicapped by not having fully recovered from a broken ankle, received during the football season. He was a fine player and kept fighting until the whistle ended the game.
