Although we are now owners of a large campus site in South Ruffner, most of our classes and activities center around down- town buildings. The administrative offices and most of the classes are in the library building at Hale and Lee streets. Chemistry lab and classes are held in the remodeled basement of Mercer school. Physical education .classes are held in the Y.M.C.A. and Y.W.C.A. Chapels and student assemblies are held in the St. Marks Methodist Church. The athletic squads are housed in build- ings on the new South Ruffner campus. A ‘ AND SITES e 5 ADMINISTRATION Marshall Buckalew, A.B. Business Manager Leonard Riggleman, AM., D D. President L S.

President ARTHUR JOHNSON, Vice-president VIRGINIA JORDAN, Secretary-treasurer EDGAR SMITH, Sergeant at Arms LOUIS E. MILLER, JR., Student Council ALVIN THACKER, Student Council CLASS OF FORTY-TWO The Junior class has its outstanding virtue the self-evident quality known as initiative. When the class organized in September, its main purpose was to elect officers to take care of class business and to present a Junior-Senior Formal. The class has distinguished itself in many ways. Bert Wolfe served as vice-president of the Student Council, president of the Pan-Hellenic Council, and president of Phi Sigma Phi. Fred Walls, Zeta Kappa prexy, also served as vice-president of the Pan-Hellenic Council. Anna Ciccarello was the attractive Junior Class candidate for Miss Morris Harvey. Charming co-eds Marian Gall and Kay Atkins were chosen as attendants to the May Queen. Six members of the class had the honor of making " Who ' s Who in American Schools and Colleges " . They were: Robert Pruett, Edgar Smith, Jerome Ruby, Jr., Bert Wolfe, Louis E. Mille r , Jr., and Alvin Thacker. The outstanding social undertaking of the class was the sponsoring of a formal, along with the Senior class. It was held at the St. John ' s Parish House in February and proved to be a complete suc- cess. The formal is expected to develop into a traditional affair. Although the second smallest class in Morris Harvey, the Juniors vie for honors as being a lead- ing force in the shaping of campus policies and ideals. 22 CLASS Hertha Beskin Anna Ciccarelio Richard Childress R.

A Homecoming parade through the downtown business section, led by Morris Harvey ' s 45 piece band, featured floats entered by college organizations as well as the five beautiful candidates for Miss Morris Harvey. Between halves of the exciting game with Glenville, Betty Lowery was chosen Miss Morris Harvey, and the Zeta Kappa float was judged the best. The day ended with a mixer in the YMCA gym, sponsored by the Alumni Association. Left, Miss Morris Harvey receives a lovelv bouquet from college president Riggleman. Below, the band leads a parade, with some fancy strutting by Drum Major Calhoun, Majorettes Peterson, Cole, and Taylor, and Sponsors Robson and Miller; Zeta Kappa ' s winning float; the Alpha Mu float; and the Phi Sigma Phi float. SADIE HAWKINS DAY Turn about was fair play on October 26, when Morris Harvey students, especially the women, celebrated Sadie Hawkins Day. The big event of the day was a foot race between halves of the game with Davis and Elkins. It turned out pretty well for the gals — most of them got their man. Daisy Mae (Helen Hall) caught Li ' l Abner (Rudolph Cavender), but before she, with the help of Marryin ' Sam (Jim Ballengee), could imprison him in the holy bonds of matrimony, a mob of Skunk Hollerers broke up the weddin ' . Earthquake McGoon (Louis Miller), and Hannibal Hoops (Bob Gibson), were very sad because they couldn ' t manage to get nabbed, and Mammy Yokum (Betty Murray), was forced to hold Pappy (Charlie Elkins), by the ear to keep him out of the race. The day ended with a Sadie Hawkins party, the girls bringing dates, paying all the expenses of the eve- ning. A good time was had by all, especially the fellows. Right, Farris advertises. Below, Daisy Mae pursues Li ' l Abner; the race is on; and finally they all line up for our staff photographer. 29 SOPHOMORE OFFICERS John Campbell President. Helen Rippetoe, Vice-president Electa Ranson, Secretary William Kirk Student Council Gene O ' Hara Student Council Joe Farris Publicity director CLASS OF FORTY- THREE When the class organized at the beginning of the school year, it chose as its officers John Campbell, president; Helen Rippetoe, vice-president; Electa Ranson, secretary-treasurer; and the Gene O ' Hara-Bill Kirk combination for Student Council representatives... Joe Farris was selected as the class publicity director in charge of publicizing all sophomore-sponsored functions. Among the beauties of the class the names of Charlotte Morris and Helen Rippetoe seemed to shine like beacons above the rest. Queenly brunette Miss Rppetoe secured the school ' s outstanding beauty honor by being selected to reign over the annual May Day observance. Miss Morris was the sophomore candidate for Miss Morris Harvey " selection during the half-time of the Glenville Homecoming game. In addition, the attractive candidate served as an attendant to her class mate in the May Queen court. The sergeant at arms of the Student Council was sophomore president John Campbell, who is also Pan- Hellenic representative from Phi Sigma Phi. Earlena Morris acted in the capacity of head cheerleader with second-year men Charles Bradley and Bill McKee as her assistants. Miss Morris was also the prelate of Phi Kappa Sigma. Olive Fielding was vice-president of Alpha Mu sorority while Ruth Byrd acted as secretary-treasurer of the same group. Miss Fielding also served as assistant editor of the Harveyan while Joe Farris was class editor, and Miss Fielding was managing editor and circulation manager and Farris was promotion manager of the Comet. Farris also took a part in the Blackfriar ' s production at the State Intercollegiate Speech festival. It is needless to mention that the editor of the " Harveyan " is sophomore Paul Fitzwater, while Henry Swoope was also prominent in college publications, acting as advertising manager of the " Comet " the first semester and as business manager of the " Harveyan " . Swoope served Zeta Kappa as vice-president. The social calender of the class contains two significant dates for the 1940-41 school year. On October 18, a sophomore class party was held to which only second yearlings and guests were admitted. Proceeds of the affair were used to sponsor the first annual " Turkey Hop " presented during the Thanksgiving holidays. The " Hop " was considered to be one of the most successful parties of the school year. Both parties were under the chairmanship of Helen Rippetoe, vice-president. 30 CLASS Verlin Talmadge Adams William Beckley Dora Lee Allen Charles Bradley Lois Brissey Gordon Duane Brown Eleanor Lee Bruster John Burnell Maxel James Butcher Ruth Louise Byrd Martha Darneal Cole Marjorie Mae Cavins Rosa Belle Cox Robert Peebles Craver Nora Gay Crouch Carroll Crowder Nancy Caroline Delaney Charles Duke SOPHOMORE Olive Birkett Fielding Edwin Fisher Vernon Fisher Betty Lew Fitch Paul Bernard Fitzwater Lenora May Frame George Garrett Mary Catherine Harmon Eunice Harpold Thomas Hartley Robert Grant Henson Roberta Mae Hicks Debra Shaw Hill Oma Hilleary James Hix Jean Richmond Hornor Mary Ennelle Hover Mary Hughes 32 CLASS Alexander Huffman • Kathryn Hyre William Inghram John Jennings Helen Wanda Jenkins Samuel King Kearns Ival Lorene Knapp Denver Knapp Joyce Knight Frank LePage Mary Jo Knight Vincent Lonoconus Virginia Lanham John Polk McCallister Virginia Louke 33 Laura Margaret McCavitt Feme Williams Freddie Albert Zinck SOPHOMORE 01 lie May McGuire Patrick Francis McGucken William Herman McKee Betty Jo McMillion Eugene McNeil Helen Midkiff Elizabeth Louise Moore Charlotte Jean Morris Earlena Marie Morris Willis Miller Basil Mullins Margaret Elaine Myers Virginia Bert O ' Dell Lois Parnell Lora Attie Pauley Barbara Jean Pierson William Joseph Redden 34 CLASS Virginia Louise Robson Charles Rounsavell Frances Shewev Marceline Louise Smith Marjorie Francine Stalnaker John James Stec Henry Swoope, Jr. Joyce Thomas Byron Thumm Phyllis Thumm Alfred Tozer Francis Joseph Turbert Elizabeth Weaver Severna Ruth Wells Kermit White June Williams Bernard Wright C 35 36 37 FRESHMAN OFFICERS Carroll Dobbins President Virginia Powell Vice-president Alice Townsend Secretary Shirley Rosenbaum. ...Student Council representative Jim Ballengee Student Council representative CLASS OF FORTY- FOUR While poring over our class records, we discovered that the freshman class is the largest in school. In spite of its size, however, the class this year seems better organized than ever before and had many credit- able honors bestowed upon its members. At their first regular meeting, the first yearlings elected class officers who are president, Carroll Dobbins; vice-president, Virginia Powell; secretary- treasurer, Alice Townsend. Their representatives to the Student Council are Shirley Rosenbaum and Jim Ballengee. Among the individual honors bestowed upon freshmen class members, there seems to be a cross- section of the outstanding members of the college. Both of Morris Harvey ' s newly-organized band spon- sors are freshmen. They were charming Sally Jane Miller and attractive, blue-eyed June Robson. The freshman class also included one of the band ' s three majorettes, dark-eyed Genevieve Taylor. Also numbered among the class ' leading members are those girls who represented it in Morris Harvey ' s countless beauty parades. Mary Campbell, dimpled co-ed from Monroe county, was the candidate for the title of " Miss Morris Harvey. " For their representatives in the May Queen court the freshmen chose stately, dignified Alice Townsend and winsome brunette Betty Byrd. Miss Byrd was later selected in an all-school balloting to be May Queen Helen Rippetoe ' s Maid of Honor during the annual May Day celebra- tion, and was elected Queen of the annual Alpha Mu carnival. Star rep orter Shirley Rosenbaum is also listed in the freshman class. Miss Rosenbaum became editor of the " Comet " for the second semester when the illness of Miss Miriam Thomas, former editor, forced her to withdraw. Miss Rosenbaum is also organizations editor of the " Harveyan " and student director of college publicity. Other literary lights in the freshman class are Lois Jean Wall, news editor of the " Comet " and Sam Richard, photographer on the " Harveyan " . Louise Dick is advertising manager of the " Harveyan. " At the state inter-collegiate speech festival held on the Marshall college campus in March, Sam Poland won all-state acting honors with his portrayal of the villain in Morris Harvey ' s winning presentation of the old-fashioned mellerdrammer, " He Ain ' t Done Right by Nell. " Also included in the cast were freshmen, or rather fresh-women, June Robson, Shirley Rosenbaum, and Virginia ' Powell. The class ' outstanding social function of the year was the all-school part y which they gave February 21. It would be well to note that this was the only all-school, admission-by-activity-book party where refresh- ments were served.

It was a colorful and festive evening for Greek guys, gals, and guests. We sent our staff photographer John Campbell, out to cover the occasion, and the result is this interesting series of shots, recording the inside stuff on a date ZK Bill Rice and AM Shirley Rosenbaum managed to enjoy despite the marked attentions of one Harveyan photographer. Needless to say, John met with trials and personal perils often during the evening, but we think he did a swell job in.spite of all, and so we give you the results. There could be a date in the offing. First dance. It appears that they are not to enjoy even this unobserved. Other people are catchinq on. They sit one out with Phi Sig Bert Wolfe and date. It was at about this time that they suddenly and mysteriously eluded the photographer, and didn ' t reappear until after intermission. Excuse? Hunger. What do you think? Looks like we re ready for a big eve- ning. Note the smiles; they don ' t know yet that they are to have a third on this date. Arriving at the dance. Bill and Shirley register. Cameraman on the job. Nice work if you can work it And so goodnight. John really worked for this one. 45 STUDENT OFFICERS Bert Wolfe Vice-president Bet ty Lowery Sec reta ry John Campbell Sergeant at arms Earlena Morris Head cheerleader A. C. Blackwell Sponsor STUDENT COUNCIL An entirely new, streamlined plan for the initiation of ' 41 freshmen started the Council program for this year out with a " bang " Under the new arrangement, each freshman was sponsored by an upper classman who had com- plete charge of his activities and behavior. Over the sponsor, six " Kangaroo " courts in charge of six Council members were held at regular intervals to try freshmen who refused to obey the rules laid down by the Council. The entire student body (including the freshmen) had an enjoyable time during the course of freshmen " Hell Week " and the initiation period. A reconditioned, renumbered set of lockers which were rented out is another source of credit to the Council this year. Obtaining a large part of the necessary funds from the student activities fee, and making up the difference from its own treasury, the Council launched a social program for the year consisting of thirteen parties, which were co-sponsored by other campus organizations and classes. All students were admitted to these events by activity card and the entire program was a success, attendance at the parties reaching record heights. In conjunction with the college administration, the Council staged one of the finest Home Coming celebra- tions which Morris Harvey has ever had, at the Morris Harvey-Glenville game on November 9. A prize was pres- ented for the best, float entered in the parade, and Miss Morris Harvey was crowned at the half. The Student Council plays a big part in the selection of the yearbook and student newspaper editors and busi- ness managers, sending three members to each of the governing boards of these organizations. New procedures were employed in elections this year of the May Queen and the new Council officers. The student body constitution was revised and approved by the Council, college administration, and student body. Under the new plan the president of the Council may be elected from the sophomore or junior classes, the head cheerleader is chosen by an executive board, and class elections are held in the spring. A Spring formal was planned, to be held in the latter part of May. New Council officers will be installed at this time. 46 GOVERNMENT PREXV Dynamic, forceful, and energetic, Bill Rice is one of the most progressive presidents the Council has ever had .... his widely varied interests have led him into journalistic, speech, and fraternal organizations .... and he ' s a qualified welder on the side ... Wiry and nervous, the auburn-haired senior is a business adminis- tration major .... perfers political science, money and banking, and business finance .... extremely popular, he has been a mem- ber of the Pan-Hellenic Council since its formation and was presi- dent of Zeta Kappa fraternity last year . . . his initials spell WAR ... his favorite pastime is to disprove theories and do the impossi- ble and he can talk you into giving him the shirt off your back .... he ' s a second year member of Who ' s Who . . . . in spite of all his honors, he ' s the most democratic of persons .... in short, we think he ' s a bit of all right. REPRESENTATIVES From the senior class, Max Anderson and Betty Jane Best were elected as Student Council representatives. Both have done excellent work and have worked hard to make the Council program a success. Max was in charge of Homecoming Day activities and is responsible in a large measure for its good organization. He has also had charge of all elections on the campus for this year and their honesty and complete fairness was due to him. Betty Jane handled the May Day program and put over the difficult undertaking with skill and finesse. Alvin " Tubby " Thacker and Louie Miller represent the junior class in the Council. Both loyal members, they headed two of the six " kanagaroo " courts, and have served on many of the Council com- mittees. Both also served on the polls during the May Queen and Council elections. From the sophomore class, Bill Kirk and Gene O ' Hara were chosen as Student Council members. Bill is a member of the Harveyan Execu- tive Board and served on the Constitutional Amendments Committee Both headed " kangaroo " courts during freshmen initiation, and served on the polls during student elections. Representatives from the freshman class are Shirley Rosenbaum and Jim Ballengee. Shirley was elected to serve on the Harveyan Executive Board and was a member on the May Day committee. She also served on the Constitutional Amendments Committee. Jim, re- placing Bill Calhoun who left school at the second semester, became a member of the Comet Executive Board and served on the election polls. 47 ALPHA MU SORORITY The first sorority on the Morris Harvey campus, Alpha Mu was organized on October 14, 1925. Founded on the mythology of the Greek muses, the goddesses of the various arts and sciences, it was called Alpha Mu, " Sisters of the Muses " The two-fold purpose of the organization is to foster interests in a literary program, outlined in a year-book published annually, and to promote social life on the campus. To further this aim the sorority holds an annual carnival as well as a spring formal. The carnival, held in March of this year, was very successful. A Hollywood theme was used and this motif was carried out in decora- tions and entertainment. Door prizes were presented to the man with " Joe E. Brown " mouth and the girl with " Garbo " feet. In an election held before carnival, a King and Queen were elected, to be crowned during the evening. They were Betty Byrd, queen, and Professor Arnold Addison, king. Members of Alpha Mu meet on alternate weeks for business and program meetings. Officers are elected annually. Betty Lowery, president of the sorority, was chosen Miss Morris Harvey in an all-school election. She represented the student body in Homecoming Day festivities, as well as other such events through- out the year. Mary Campbell, freshman, and Charlotte Morris, sophomore, were elected to represent their classes. Betty Byrd was chosen to act as Maid of Honor to the May Queen in the annual May Day celebration sponsored by the college, while two of the sorority members were chosen as attendants. Three of the six outstanding personalities elected in the college were Alpha Mu members and Alpha Mu is represented in Who ' s Who in American Universities and Colleges by two members. The sorority sponsored a Christmas party for the school during the Christmas holidays.

When Morris Harvey and Kanawha colleges combined, the sorority continued to function on the common campus. Originally established as an honor sorority in Alexandria, Louisiana in 1903, Sigma lota Chi later became a social organiza- tion, though it still maintains high scho ' astic requirements and stresses the importance of scholastic achievements. To be eligible for membership, candidates must meet all national requirements as well a those of the local Pan-Hellenic Council. The purpose of the sorority is to carry out the meaning of the word Sisterhood, to help others, and to try to reach the highest standards possible, mentally, morally, and physically. Weekly meet- ings of the organization are held, meeting alternately at the home of the members. Two meetings a month are devoted to rituals. Betty Jane Best, president of the sorority, is mentioned in a special section of Who ' s Who in American Universities and Colleges, devoted to students who are honored by the book for two years. Marion Gall, secretary, was elected to be one of the attendants to the May Queen. Various social activities are SDonsored during the year by the sorority, climaxed in the spring with a banquet and formal In the fall a tea is held to which all girls in the school are invited. A Valentine party was sponsored by the sorority in co-operation with the Student Council.

The aim of the sorority is to unite into a more intimate fellowship young women of congenial tastes, and by means of that fellowship and sisterly understanding to afford each member the opportunity of broadening and enriching her life socially, intellectually, physically, and spiritually, ' v Vv The organization carries out each year an extensive program of varied social and educational activities In the fall a " Howdy Day " to help freshmen get acquainted was sponsored which was climaxed in the evening with a party held at the YWCA. A formal tea is held at the beginning of the school year to which all girl students in school are invited. Highlighting the year ' s social program is the annual spring formal. A " Bowery Ball " is held every year in which the pre-war theme is carried out in the decorations " The Bar-fly male quartette " " Tillie Bustle, the waterfront soubrette " " The Strawberry Blonde " and other relics of the old East Side of New York featured the entertainment. Helen Rippetoe, member of the sorority, was chosen May Queen in an all-school election. She ruled over annual May Day festivities held on the lawn of the state capitol May 1. Miriam Thomas, member of. the sorority is represented in Who ' s Who in American Universities and Colleges, as is Ruth Dunbar. Anna Ciccarello, secretary of the organization, was chosen to represent the junior class in Homecoming activities. Pledges of the sorority entertained members with a " tacky " party in the middle of February.

In order to be eligible for membership, a girl must be acceptable to the group on the basis of personality, character, and scholarship. She must have completed at least 16 hours of college work and must have at least a high C average to be maintained during her entire college course. Meetings are held every Monday night during the school year and lectures, discussions, and socials are included in the agenda of activities. In the fall an " international " tea was held, and at Easter- time a " bunny " party was given in co-operation with the Student Council. Three Phi Lambda Tau members, Rachel Dotson, president of the organization, Elaine White and Margaret Jones were named this year to Who ' s Who in American Universities and Colleges, honorary publication. Elaine White was elected May Queen for two successive years. Phi Lambda Tau is interested in girls who do not have an opportunity to attend college and because of this a sixty dollar scholarship loan has been established to aid a freshman co-ed each year. 54 PHI LAMBDA TAU SORORITY First row Edith Cunningham, Betty Lew Fitch, Vernon Foltz, June Gibson, Jeanne Giesey.

Two years later, Beta chapter of the fraternity was organized in Morris Harvey college on November 14. Before initiation a candidate must pass at least 12 semester hours of college work, and must have a general average of C. Sponsors of the organization are Professor C. E. Roth and J. J. Van Den Brink and Mrs. Helen Tufts Lauhon is the patroness. Character, Scholarship, and Leadership is the motto of Phi Sigma Phi, and green and white are the fraternity colors. The cape jasmine is the flower. Each year during the Homecoming celebration, Phi Sigma Phi entertains its alumni with a Smoker at the Daniel Boone hotel. Special decorations were planned by the fraternity for the final basketball game of the year, the Wesleyan game, and members of the fraternity acted as ushers. Bert Wolfe, president of the fraternity, was chosen 6ne of the six outstanding personalities of the school in a popularity election. Nine Phi Sigs were honored by Who ' s Who in American Universities and Colleges this year, one of them, John Newton, receiving the honor for the second consecutive year. Social activities of the past year have included hamburger frys, alumni sponsored parties, and rushing activities. In collaboration with the Student Council, the fraternity sponsored an all-school party at the YWCA on March 21 .

The Comet, for 18 years Morris Harvey ' s student publication, is issued semi-monthly during the year as an extra-curricular activity Awarded first class honor rating last year in the critical service of the Associated Collegiate press, the Comet is a member of that organization and distributes the Collegiate Digest. Printed in tabloid size, the paper was the first in the state to streamline headlines, and sponsor regular radio broadcasts. Each year, the paper co-sponsors with the Charleston Gazette an annual " Sadie Hawkins Day " and it possesses an original car- toon by Al Capp, creator of " L ' il Abner " , " Daisv Mae " , and other Dog Patch characters. Morris Harvey was one of the first colleges in the country to hold such an event. At annual Homecoming activities the Comet is donor of the Eisensmith trophy for the most original float entered in the parade. This year the choosing of " Miss Santa Claus " and Morris Harvey ' s candidate for Queen of the annual tomato festival at Berkeley Springs was sponsored by the paper. The Morris Harvey Ping-Pong tourna- ment was also held under the auspices of the Comet. The editor and business manager of the paper are chosen annually by a Comet Executive board composed of representatives of the journalism and English departments, Student Council, senior class, and business manager of the college. In collaboration with the Student Council, the Comet sponsored an all -school party this year during Homecoming festivities. 64 WELCOME FRESHMEN Four New Members S ome jB eads Fall Enrollment Added to M-H Faculty Committee Shows New High Colloge Enrollment Warrants rir cVi » r .

The presentation took place at the Shrine Mosque. During the year, the choir sang before several local organizations, including the Lion ' s Club, Charleston high school, South Charleston high school, and Sacred Heart high school. A prominent part in May Day activities is taken by this organization and a local concert was planned this spring. Organized within the choir is the male quartet, composed of Jim Foglesong, Ed Fisher, Lawson Hamilton, and Ralph Pulliam. This qroup has ung at Belle high school, the Lion ' s club, and other local organizations.

Byron Thumm— Mary Hover .... Kermit White - President Secretary 7 reasurer Religious Leader Recreation The Christian Service club, originally established at Barboursville, moved with Morris Harvey college to Charleston and the local group was first organized here in 1935, under the sponsorship of Reverend Glen W. Stewart. The club, which serves as a unifyinq force for the promotion of Christian ideals in the college, is composed not only of students who are preparing for the ministry or for full-time religious service but also for those who have chosen the Christian way or life and who are interested in the work of the church. In order that religious interest and religious activity among the students may best be stimulated, the club pursues the cultivation of fellowship and the desire to participate in Christian social action on the campus, in the college community, and in the world at large. Devotional services are held every week. The club co-operates actively with the Methodist Student Movement, the Student Volunteers, the National Student Christian Movement, the Y.M.CA, the YWCA, and churches of the city. Its primary function is to present a program of Christian service on the Morris Harvey campus. Representatives are sent to student conferences each year. This year students attended the Student Volunteer conference at Buckhannon in April. The dub sponsored a sunrise service on the Thursday before Easter vacation. On December 31 a retreat was held at South Hills. The week of April 9-16 was designated as Religious Emphasis Week and during this period a special assembly was sponsored for Morris Harvey students A speaker sent out by the National Association of Protest- ants, Jews and Catholics addressed the group. Although it is not primarily a social organization, the club sponsors several fine social gatherings each year including luncheons, social meetings, and parties.

FENCING TEAM lr November of 1940, there W3S born upon the Morris Harvey campus a new sport — fencing Morris Harvey is one of the very few, if not the only college in the state to have a fencing team The club meets twice a week in the basement of St. Marks church. A group of twelve boys and girls constitute the club, which is coached by Alfred Tozer, a member of the Charleston Fencing Club and a Morris Harvey student. The students are taught the use of the foil, and later are to be instructed in the use of sabre and epee. The club hopes to have mastered the foil by next year and to have some knowledge of the sabre. It hopes to schedule other colleges for fencing meets. Letters will be given to students who make the team. Enough interest has been shown to insure a good future for the sport in Morris Harvey. FENCING TEAM 84 GIRLS’ BASKETBALL The Golden Eaglets, under the direction of Coach Helen Bayless, finished the season with three wins, six losses, and two ties. In the city basketball league the Eaglets were at a disadvantage due to the lack of experience as compared with their opponents. All members of the squad were newcomers with the exception of Virginia Jordan and Mary Lib , Stump. Two of the outstanding games of the season were with Alderson Broaddus and West Virginia Bearings. The undefeated Co-eds of A.B. were greatly surprised in their return game, which ended in a 27-27 tie. As a preliminary to one of the varsity games the Eaglets furnished plenty of competition for the West Virginia Bearings, 1941 city league champions, resulting in another tie, 13-13. Girls ' rules bar the playing of extra periods in case of a tie. None of their games were powder-puff affairs, although some of the scores might seem to indicate such. The girls are to be praised for their fine team spirit loyalty, and sportsmanship. For their efforts, the squad received letters at the end of the season. Coach Helen Bayless TEAM Forward: Jo Wright, Georgia Dummitt, Gene Barton, Ruth Pyles, Janette Shepard.
