Because of those two factors and a few others, however, the College no longer has a past — it has a future! A future built around the solid foundation of a dark-haired basketball player whose skill aroused the area and the nation to the fact that a college does exist in the Great Kanawha Valley. He, with his fellow players, brought crowds across the river to see just what was going on in South Ruffner. They looked, and many of them decided that here was a going concern that would repay in satisfaction any support from the household kitty. That, coupled with an urgent demand for higher learning in the capital city area, filled the champagne bottle and greased the skids for the launching of an institution worthy of the rich, generous valley in which it is located. Picturesque old Ad Building Better than now , hut just wait! Barboursville Music Hal! Xote flash y limousine Although relatively unimportant in the unsentimental light of progress, the fact remains that many noble men and women have devoted their time, effort — and their lives — to this institution in its 62 years of existence. Not the least by far was a certain Mr. Morris Harvey, whose cash put his name on top of the Student Activities Building in big, illuminated letters. That bearded philanthropist was a history in him- self. The great-grandson of a buckskin-clad frontiersman who established the first per- manent settlement in the Kanawha Valley, Mr. MH first wailed and kicked February 16, 1821, near Prosperity in what is now Raleigh County. His forbears owned huge tracts in this and neighboring counties, much of which he inherited on the death of his parents. This and other lands be- came the source of his wealth. In a letter to William H. Maginnis, local newsman and historian, an old-timer who knew Mr. Harvey described him as a " long- headed " man, which was not a comment on his physiological attributes. It meant, in Little church in the wildwood Scenic Chapel was busy place 2 Part of “Downtown Tech” We learned in a grade school Public Library was the Campus Did pigeons drive us out? Parking 25c — Learning invaluable Class-to-class by bus modern terminology, that he was a man of consid- erable shrewdness and foresight. While serving as Fayette County sheriff (the Democrats were " in " in those days, too) he bought much bluff land considered worthless by farmers. It later proved a wise invest- ment, developing into one of the state ' s richest coal holdings. The letter to Mr. Maginnis reports that he was a fair and just sheriff: " He would take calves or sheep or most anything for taxes. " Such collections were to his credit, since legal tender was scarce. He became interested in the college, which then was Barboursville Seminary in Barboursville. His do- nations to it, including that provided in his will, topped $300,000. Barboursville Seminary, honorable ancestor of Morris Harvey College, was born in 1888 when the county seat of Cabell County was moved from Bar- boursville to Huntington. First quarters for the sem- inary were the newly-vacated court house and jail. It was a typical early college setting — the old town pump stood at the corner . . . there was a base- ball team called the " Red Caps, " whose uniforms were made of red calico, the blouses were made very full and drawn just below the knees with elastic . . . some great games were played at " Depot Field " be- tween the ' Caps and picked nines from surrounding communities. Most houses had hitching posts and stone or wooden stiles in front . . . the village streets were lighted with oil lamps. The summer of ' 88 was a busy time for college organizers. Many problems were to be worked out, not the least of which was to " vote out " the two local saloons. On September 12, 1888, the seminary opened its doors to about 25 students. Top tuition was $20 for a 20-week course, and board was $2.50 per week. The effect of a college on the sleepy-eyed little community is unrecorded, but probably proved a tre- mendous cultural lift for the town and area, to say nothing of the usual antics of higher education that perplex, amuse, and sometimes dismay the local citi- zenry. First president of the organization was Rev. T. S. Wade, who served two years, a bit less than the aver- “Front Office” of the South Ruffner Campus Don ' t mosey through if you ' re cutting class Student Activities Building, built by you know who The kid with a grin will tip them in, the ghost of 23 3 Chow hall and popular campus hangout Looking for someone t Ten to one he ' s here age tenure in that office which through the year has boiled down to two and nine-nineteenth years. That statistic is being altered daily, however, by the record- breaking term of the present chief, Dr. Leonard Rig- gleman, who took office in 1931. Previously the long- est service had been that of D. W. Shaw, who served from 1900 to 1909. Other presidents have been: Robert W. Douthat, 1890-95; J. M. Boland, 1895; J. P. Marshall, 1895-96; T. C. Atkeson, 1896-97; Zephanias Meek, 1897-98; S. F. McClung, 1897-1900; R. H. Alderson, 1909-14; Paul H. Willis, 1914-16; U. V. W. Darlington, 1916- 20; R. T. Webb, 1920-22; C. S. Pettis, 1922-23; R. T. Brown, 1923-26; U. V. W. Darlington, 1926-27; Rob- ert H. Ruff, 1927-29; George West Diehl, 1929-30; and David Kirby, 1930-31. The first catalog stated: " . . . It is the purpose of the college to throw around the students hallowed in- fluences of the Christian religion, without trying to bind their minds in favor of any particular denom- ination. . . Extra-curricular activities were limited to two lit- erary societies — one for men and one for women — and athletics was practically unknown even up to the nineties. A temporary setback was suffered from 1909 to 1919, when the church raised its educational stand- ards, relegating Morris Harvey (it was so named in 1901) to junior college status, but it regained its for- mer position in 1921 when it graduated a new four- year class. When the College moved to Charleston in 1935, it had a debt of $346,000 which since has been paid with interest — on the part of the creditors. It opened in Kanawha Public Library and an as- sortment of basements and attics, absorbed Kanawha Junior College, and began to forge ahead. In 1947, after several fund drives and some " long-headed " planning, the College purchased its present campus in South Ruffner, and moved across the river in a dramatic ceremony. Now, barring H-bomb, earthquake, or a change in the course of the Great Kanawha, Morris Harvey is here to stay. In progress-filled 1950 it began " plant- ing ivy " and getting down to the serious business of justifying the faith of new benefactors. It’s called the “H” building — Wonder why? Guess classroom buildings are necessary Here it is!

The School Year in Retrospect Its success foreshadowed by a record registration of dazzling coeds and purposeful eds, the past year embraced some of the most significant and heart-warming events in Morris Harvey history. An impressive crop of freshmen became oriented, purchased beanies, then joyously discarded same on Homecoming Day. The autumn sun glinted on a lustrous Golden Eagle eleven led by Tom Bossie and Ralph (most valuable) Malus as the band — skilfully directed by John Kline — played on! Sadie Hawkins ' Day produced its pageantry as floats lam- pooned Charleston ' s smog and the genuine auburn beard of Hair- less Joe Dunlap waved in the breeze. Daisy Mae Shipley caught Li I Abner King (for her biggest thrill until becoming May Queen) while thousands envied. The Philharmonic Choir, led by Prof. Harold Ewing, climaxed 1 ts sc hedule with a superlative performance of The Messiah, in a packed Municipal Auditorium, December 4. passion for " information please " on the part of the faculty, preceded the imposing mid-term Commencement, featuring a challenging address by Pres. John C. Baker of Ohio University. The second semester saw the fame of George King — based on athletic artistry and character development — reach its zenith as the Golden Boy swept in every conceivable honor. While the social side had its " bounces, " " dribbles, " and canasta, campaign oratory in two flavors (peppermint and ginger) paved the way for the election of Jim McIntyre as president of the student body, succeeding capable Bill Bordas. Besides its sterling productions of Laura and An Inspector Calls, the Blackfriars, in sponsoring Everyman, proved that faculty mem- bers are not such bad actors. As bulldozers bit dirt toward construction of a monumental permanent edifice, an equally potent project went forward: a spir- itual awakening destined to produce an institution of more than mortar and metal; one of which Morris Harvey adherents will have every reason to be proud. — Walter Shea 21 jfacultp anti % taU President Leonard Riggleman Philosopher , executive , scholar , minister - Dr. Leonard Riggleman, president of Morn.

And a Pat Casey — likeable, enthusiastic and known to all as a good Joe, a regular guy. They personify energetic young students in colleges everywhere — that ' s why they were named by their classmates to be Morris Harvey ' s " Typical Students " in an election sponsored by The Harveyan. Photogenic and agreeable, they proved a perfect choice, as this page testifies. They cooperated to the last degree in having the pictures made, they smiled prettily for Joe the Cameraman and they are truly " Typical Students " in every sense of the word. Libby came to Morris Harvey by way of South Charleston High School where she was actively engaged in many school activities. Her most notable achievement in high school days was as a Black Eagle cheerleader with inexhaustible lungs. She lives in Jefferson Park. Pat is a Charleston High School graduate and lives in Marmet. His graduation was CHS ' s loss — but what a gain for MH! He is engaged in numerous activities on the campus — most notably Blackfriars — and adds as another claim to fame, brother George. They ' re off! And if the evening turns out as big as those smiles (left), Pat and Libby are in for a whale of a time. Next stop — the Christmas formal, with Santa ' n all the trimmin ' s. " Say, did you hear what happened today in the Snak Bar? " Mr. and Miss MH catch up with the latest campus news (center) while the band warms up. (Go ahead. Get out your magnifying glass and take a good look. Not a suspicious bottle on the table!) Can ' t let any more of this good music go to waste. Let ' s get out there (right) and give it a whirl. Never can tell, might bump into someone we know. Smiling again. These kids must really be happy, or is it all for the Joe the photographer? The tempo picks up (left), but they ' re still in there pitching. When this Casey goes to bat, he really keeps ' em happy. Wonder how it feels to be a celebrity? They seem to be enjoying it . Could it be because the evening is on the Harveyan? After " Good Night, Sweetheart, " everyone dashes for the diner (center) for a little homogenized nightcap. It was a swell dance, all agree. All in favor of more Christmases and more dances, say aye. Motion carried. Sorta hate to see it end, but you know what they say about all good things. . . . Homeward bound (right) and beginning to get just a bit tired from the workout. Try it again sometime? Sure. (The next pictures in this series would be the nrost interesting, but there doesn ' t seem to be room. Oh well, typical girl . . • typical boy . . . typical date — you figure out a typical ending.) 36 opfjomores; Class Officers Back row: Mary Lou Simmons , vice-president ; Anita Cogan, secretary: Bobbie Lee Shamblin , treasurer: Sue Hamilton , Stu- dent Council representative .

Vivacious, energetic Keith Ann Moore was a queen long before she was elected to reign at Home- coming — a queen in her home where she plays the feminine lead, a queen with her sorority sisters in Phi Kappa Sigma, a queen with a certain guy - in short, a queen with all who know her. Keith Ann ' s day is not unlike that of most Morris Harvey coeds - up for classes, lunch in the Cafeteria, work a while, home to study, date for the game and get-together afterward, then off to bed. It might be called a representative day in the life of any coed. Yet there must be some reason why this brown- haired junior has been chosen to represent the fair sex of the College as Miss MH of 1949-50. There is. She ' s (mark your X anywhere - this ain ' t multiple choice) charming, personable, friendly, unassuming, gracious, industrious, popular, and just plenty cute to top it all. Need any more reasons? Faith in mankind in general and womankind in par- ticular would never lag if this old world had more Miss Moores. College Sweetheart " °h, how I hate to get dressed in the mornin ' .

Wow, what a beautiful strand of pearls. Keith Ann (that ' s Hap on her left) enjoys the game. Only a few minutes earlier George King had broken another record. The customary raid on the ice-box. Judging from this it won ' t be long until the house settles down to normalcy. 52 As per usual after a game, a bunch of MH students gather at the Moore home for an evening of fun. The end of a perfect day. Keith (Raggedy) Ann and best buddy, Joanne Caldwell, prepare to dream of another day to come. Sororities! anti fraternities! . . .

Jflu Martha Burton President The oldest sorority on the campus, Alpha Mu, was organized October 14, 1925, to promote friendly social rela- tions on the campus and to develop character and personality within the sorority. The AMs welcomed students back to the campus this fall by presenting every- one with lollypops on " Welcome Day. " The next activity was the annual Fash- ion Tea, followed by the " Basketball Bounce. " The " Bounce, " incidentally, set a precedent for other organizations and a series of mixes followed. The Alpha Mus later sponsored a " Merry Mix " after the Wesleyan game. Outstanding on the list of social ac- tivities for the sorority were the Spring Formal and the Sweetheart Swing. Chosen this year as the " sweetheart couple " were Alpha Mu Mary Lou Wil- son and Roy Brown. This year the title of Miss Phi Sigma Phi again went to an Alpha Mu. Last year it was Mary Frances Williams, this year Bobbie Lee Shamblin. Members of the group hold offices in Blackfriars, W. A. A., Newman Club, Methodist Student Movement, A. C. E., F. T. A., and The Harveyan staff. The girls also are active in the choir, band, and one member is treasurer of the Sophomore Class.

Originally Sigma lota Chi was established as an honor sorority in Alex- andria, Louisiana, in 1903, and later became a social organization. The purpose of Sigma lota Chi is to aid the social growth and character development of its members. To be eligible for membership it is necessary to meet all national requirements as well as local Panhellenic Council. A tea for all women of the college, rush parties, rituals, and a Spring hay- ride are annual affairs. This year ' s activities were highlighted by a Spring formal and a trip to Chattanooga, Ten- nessee, for the biennial convention. Among the outstanding members were Ginger Koch and " Dee " Tennant, cheer- leaders. Ramona Shipley was chosen as " Daisy Mae " for the college ' s annual " Sadie Hawkins Day " celebration and as May Queen. Sigma lota Chi carries an average of eighteen members. Beta Nu Chapter is sponsored by Mrs. W. H. Walker and the patronesses are: Mrs. C. E. King, Mrs. Frank Black, Mrs. Alice Haworth, Mrs. C. E. Bennett, Mrs. E. W. Ockerman and Mrs. W. W.

Activities of the sorority this year included its annual Candlelight Tea for women students and faculty members, the Sadie Hawkins Day dance, and a Spring formal and banquet. The enterprising Phi Lambs are well represented in many college organ- izations including the Student Council, Chi Beta Phi, Eta Chi Delta, FTA, Philharmonic Choir, and Ministerial Association.

" Howdy Day, " an annual affair spon- sored by the sorority, broke the ice after fall registration by making " howdy " the day ' s official greeting. A dinner dance this year replaced the Phi Kaps ' tradi- tional Bowery Ball, and a colorful Spring formal was highlight of the year ' s social events. An active organization of energetic members, women of Phi Kappa Sigma were represented in the cheerleaders, Comet staff, May Court, and Newman Club. Miss Morris Harvey, Miss Fresh- man, Miss Sophomore, and president of Chi Beta Phi were Phi Kaps. The sorority was organized in the fall of 1928 on the Morris Harvey Barbours- ville campus. Its aim is to unite into a more intimate fellowship young women of congenial tastes, and by means of that fellowship and sisterly understand ing to afford each member the oppor- tunity of broadening and enriching her life socially, intellectually, physically and spiritually. 60 First row: Jerry Braden, Katie Butterwortn, Joanne Caldwell.

Its first spring formal, Apri I Showers ' was a great success, and several informal student mixes were held after basketball games. Bake sales and dis- tribution of lapel tags at games rounded out the year ' s activities. Mu Chapter of Zeta Mu, a national sorority, was or- ganized at Morris Harvey, May 3, 1948. The organ- ization was founded Feb- ruary 7, 1921, at Stephens College for Women, Co- lumbia, Missouri. Establishing a perpetual bond of friendship among its members, developing a strong and more womanly character, broadening moral and intellectual life, and assisting members in every possible way are listed as objectives. Campus members are active in Blackfriars, Comet, FTA, and other groups, and are represented in Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities and " Stu- dent Life " publication. " The Evergreen, " official yearly sorority magazine, is edited and distributed by Catherine Moffet at Greenbrier College for Women at Lewisburg. Alum- nae news is contained in another periodical, " The Zeta Mule. " Chapters also are located at Stephens College, Greenbrier College, Blackstone College, Rider College, Tennessee Wesleyan College, and Potomac State Col- lege. v Suzanne Taylor President First row: Frances Dillinger, Betty Lilly, Mary Rexroad, Naomi Thabet, Barbara Wag- ner.

Its members, individually, participate in varsity and intra-mural athletics, honoraries, and student government. Collectively, the fraternity sponsors such annual events as the Campus Frolic, Anniversary Ball, Turkey Hop, and formals for its members and their guests in the Christmas and Spring seasons. Numerous private parties also are held. Phi Sigma Phi was organized on October 20, 1927, at Concord State Teachers College at Athens, and the local chapter was formed November 14, 1929, at Barboursville. Uniting men students, instilling a spirit of campus fellowship, and pro- moting the interests of the College are Phi Sig goals. 63 First row: John Alessandrini, Bill Bordas, R. H.

The oldest of Morris Harvey ' s Greek letter organizations, it was begun March 14, 1923, by six students in old Billingsly Hall at the Barboursville campus. First called Kappa Kappa, the name later was changed to Beta Kappa. At a meeting in Huntington November 30, 1928, of active and alumni members, the name again was changed to Zeta Kappa. A Grand Chapter was formed and the organization was declared national. The Student Directory, one of the fraternity ' s outstanding contributions to the Col- lege, was published last fall for the third consecutive year. Information for the direc- tory is compiled by fraternity members and cost of publication is defrayed by advertising. Highlights of the fraternity ' s social activities were the Christmas Formal, Birthday Ball, and Spring Formal. Informal parties also were held throughout the year. Contributing much to the fraternity this year was the formation of the Active Alumni of Zeta Kappa. zCr KAPPA [CRVINC TOWEL er E JRTHDA 66 i • V k «T f v m i, v O ! ■ n ' f ’ . w85r-» nr i f 1 4- I ft a o A .ju; ft r », A A 9 f ■ O 1 ”T » T ‘ — r - 1, ‘•V A r »Sr w (A A • " N .i H o i ' % 1 ) JIC First row: Donald Aaron, Tom Adams, Bennie Akers, John Armstrong, Joe Christian.

The expan- sion outside of Virginia grew rapidly, finding active chapters at Western Reserve, Texas College of Mines, Randolph-Macon College, Illinois Wesleyan, Waynesburg Col- lege and Arkansas A. M. With the return of colleges to a normal enrollment following the last war, national growth was resumed in a healthy fashion. The Kappa Sigma Kappa fraternity reached the status of an international fraternity by the chartering of a British Alpha and a Canadian Alpha chapter which were significant events to the fraternity. Chapters were organized at the University of Tampa, University of Toledo, University of Southern California and many other campuses throughout the country bringing the total active and colony chapters to forty in number. The West Virginia Gamma chapter at Morris Harvey College was established in February, 1947, and has been growing steadily. Other chapters of Kappa Sigma Kappa in West Virginia are at Fairmont, Concord and Glenville State colleges. 68 First row: Gene Anderson, Claude Bettinger, Lome W. Burton. Second row: Edgar O.

Their initiative, ability and down-right hard work brought about many improvements on campus during their tenure of office. They are pictured: Jim McIntyre, vice-president, Helen L. Kauffman, secretary-treasurer, and Bill Bordas, president. Bob Johnson, sergeant-at-arms, was absent when the picture was made. Fourteen students, selected by student and faculty representatives on the basis of scholarship, extra-curricular activities, character and promise of future success, represent Morris Harvey in the 1949- ' 50 edition of " Who ' s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities. " They are William J. Bordas, William Edward Cox, Don W. Hamilton, Helen Louise Kauffman, Mary Kathryn Kelso, George Smith King, James McIntyre, Garland E.

The George S. Laidley chapter of the Future Teachers of America was reor- ganized on the Morris Harvey campus during the fall of 1949, under the spon- sorship of Prof. Frank Hall. The purpose of this organization is to further acquaint future teachers with the duties and obligations in the teach- ing profession. In aiding this cause the F.T.A. attended the State Teachers As- sociation meeting in Huntington last fall. High school chapters of the F.T.A. in the Kanawha Valley were visited by members of the Laidley chapter and were guests on the Morris Harvey cam- pus. Association for Childhood Education In order to better understand chil- dren, thus becoming better teachers and parents, several students have formed the Association for Childhood Education. Through group discussion and study they familiarize themselves with the complexities of the pliable minds of children. The local chapter of the association was formed in 1947.

An interdenomina- tional group, members of Advent Christian, Baptist, Christian, Methodist, Nazarene, and Presbyterian de- nominations are included on the 1949-50 roster. The Ministerial Association tries to foster Christian living on the campus, as well as in all areas of life. Tuesday convocation services, which the association initiated and supports, have become an established part of Morris Harvey ' s rapidly-expanding tradition. Fourteen members of the group serve as pastors in twenty-eight churches of four denominations. Twelve others serve on three deputation teams which are available for special religious services in Charleston and surrounding communities. ohn Bowyer, Shirley Campbell, Bill Cox, Evelyn Fitzwater.

METHODIST, a word known around Morris Harvey for a long time, took on new meaning in 1949-50. A new campus organization was founded — new to MH, but existing as far back as 1913 when it originated at the University of Illinois. It ' s a big organization. Not only big because it ministers to 300,000 Meth- odists in colleges and universities throughout the country, but big because it encourages big thinking, big living, big acting. Big because it, with others, has taken leadership in forming the ecumenical move- ment of Christianity on campus in this country, the United Student Council, and has helped to bring Christian students of the world together through the World ' s Student Christian Federation. STUDENT differentiates between this and other organizations of the church. The student has vast resources of ideas. He often needs ideals to comple- ment them to make him the creative citizen that our world so sorely needs. Commitment to, not comple- tion of, this task is the purpose of the Christian on campus. Experiences of creative worship, wholesome recreation, and projects in religious living and social action help to achieve this goal. MOVEMENT indicates going somewhere. Racial understanding, good-will, cooperation, and peace are a long way off. They will come nearer through prayer, discipline, and evangelistic zeal. Movement may be slow, evolutionary rather than revolutionary, but it will be constantly contagious if it is motivated by the Christian spirit.

With the productions " Laura " and " An Inspector Calls " Blackfriars dramatic club wrote another chapter in the history of the growth of dramatics on the Mor- ris Harvey campus. This organization, like most college theater groups, is dedicated to the cultural advancement of Morris Harvey through the medium of legitimate dramatic art. Blackfriars promote and encourage any phase of drama whenever possible. After a few years of wartime inactivity, the organ- ization was revived immediately upon our arrival to the South Ruffner campus and the progress made wit each ensuing year has been most encouraging. Working under the handicap of inadequate produc tion facilities, the members have, nevertheless, fo lowed each endeavor to a favorable end. Every pre duction is accompanied by new and more difficu problems. And on each occasion the initiative an ingenuity of the members, working as one, has le to a practical solution. With the prospects of their own auditorium in th very near future, Blackfriars are looking forward 1 bigger and better seasons. 74 jHasontc Club The Masonic Club of Morris Harvey College was organ- ized in 1947 for the purpose of promoting a better under- standing of Masonic tradition. This aim was carried out this year, as in the past, with a social dinner meeting each month with prominent guest speakers who presented interesting sidelights on Masonic history. One meeting each year is designated Ladies Night. Joseph Zeyeer President G. C. Lazenby Faculty Sponsor First row: Bob Layer , first semester president , Verlin T. Adams , Dr. Ashby C.

Apart from the spiritual reasons, it is also felt that Catholic students on the Morris Harvey campus should know each other and, where possible, associate with other Catholics. The Newman Club is the answer to this need. It brings the Catholic students together through various social activities. It enables the individ- ual student to become acquainted with other students of his own faith on the campus and to form friendships more beneficial than chance acquaintanceships made through other agencies. Activities of the Morris Harvey Newman Club this year included cor- porate communions, lectures, discussion study clubs, parties, dances and picnics. Fr.

Accounting Society The Morris Harvey Accounting Society was organized October 15, 1948. It become the largest organization on the campus dur- ing its first year, and since has sponsored several talks featuring well known speakers in the accounting profession. Objectives of the professional organization are encouraging and fostering the ideal of service as the basis of the accounting pro- fession, and promoting the study of accounting with a view to securing the highest ethical ideals. Other aims of the group include acting as a medium between professional men, instructors, students and others who are inter- ested in the development of the study of the accounting profession, helping develop high moral, professional and scholastic standards in its members.

It was organized in the fall of 1947. The purpose of the council is to foster wholesome organized recreation for the entire male student body and to encourage the spirit of sportsmanship of all participants and spectators. Any organizations who desire to have a voice on the council are required to send their representative to the first council meet- ing of each semester. Some of the duties of the council are: deciding protests and eligibility, making the program, setting entry fees and making awards. In the first year of intramurals the sports offered were: basket- ball, volleyball, and softball. The activities this year have been touch-football, volleyball, basketball, basketball foul shooting, bad- minton, table tennis, horseshoes, archery and softball. The officiating of team sports is done by physical education students who are in their senior year. Members of the Intramural Council are Dana Wallace, Henry Hill, Bob Doicneu, Keith Kessel Prof Robert Baylous , standing, is faculty advisor. 77 Cijt peta $l)t Hazel Childress President The membership of Chi Beta Phi, national honorary scien- tific fraternity, is composed of those students who have com- pleted at least twenty hours in the natural science or mathe- matics divisions with a B average or better. The purpose of Chi Beta Phi is to promote interest in science through lectures, papers and other programs of gen- eral scientific interest. The national organization annually awards a scholarship key to the outstanding student member of each chapter. The Epsilon chapter of Morris Harvey awards a medal to the student who attains the highest average on the first twenty hours of college science. r Ashby C.

As collectors and distributors of public informa- tion, The Comet staff has been particularly for- tunate this year because of the deluge of campus news from various activities. The exploits of George King and the Golden Eagles, the current building campaign, the growth of Morris Harvey ' s student body and the student election all have served to stimulate interest in The Comet. Especially pleasing has been the fine spirit of cooperation shown The Comet by scholastic organizations and key faculty members. The vital role that The Comet plays in build- ing college spirit cannot be overestimated. The organization of The Comet has remained on a skeleton basis, with most work done voluntarily. Ed Peters served as editor of The Comet during the first semester, and B. F. Jarrell grabbed the editorial reins for the second semester. Morris Harvey students have enjoyed the witticisms of Peters, the sparkling sports commentaries of Bill Bibb, the heavy verbal barrages of Ray Murphy and Jerry Braden ' s newsy chatter about the guys and gals on the campus. One of the unsung heroes of The Comet pro- duction was Business Manager Jim Seets. Through his untiring efforts in the sordid business world, The Comet remained solvent enough to visit the campus every two weeks on schedule. A bunch of roses to Bill Keenan, John Bowyer, Bill Cox, Walter Shea, Rodney Smith, Harry Wag- ner, Bob Downey, Lolly Nutter, Toni Suppa, Nor- man Wilcox, Paul Campbell and R. R. Schoolfield, who turned in news whenever their arms were twisted. Orchids to photogs Clayton Fontalbert and Karl Smith. Violets to Barbara Wagner and Paul Shipley for their invaluable assistance, and a great big bunch of poison ivy to Foulball Fou- gas, who only turned in two stories for the entire semester. Members of The Comet staff during the past two or three years have made their presence felt on daily city newspapers. Ex-Comet staffers who are now laboring for dailies are Ed Peters, A. E. (Bill) Bibb, Eddie Rowan, Skip Johnson, Jim Law- rence, Ray Murphy, Jerry Braden, Ralph Lemon, Harold Gadd, Bill Keenan, Neil Boggs and Jim Rathbone.

George has just tipped up the ball that was destined to swish the cords for a new single-season scoring record. It was the last regularly scheduled game of the season and came with 2:05 gone in the contest. The story of George King in words and pictures — is depicted on the following pages. And herewith is the account of one of West Virginia s greatest athletes . . . Do you recognize him f George at nine months and he ' s already holding that hand like he was clutching a basketball. )t l ing tovp By BILL BIBB Harvcyan Editor Fate had a hand in it! That time-worn statement may very well apply to Morris Harvey ' s fabulous George King. A kid who loved football. An unusually small boy who had his mother wor- ried to death for fear " he would be crushed " while playing football with bigger boys. An average basketball performer in high school who thought his court antics were over when Stonewall Jackson bowed out of the finals at Morgantown in 1946. A fellow who had to be talked into going out for basketball at Morris Harvey. A nervous young man who didn ' t think he would make the team even the night before the opening game in 1946. A fellow who has doubtless said " Thanks " many times to a junior high school buddy, Corky Snyder, and to the gent that got him out for practice at MH, Bill Jarrett. Yes, fate had a hand in it. But fate was kind and George King, the " little fella " that grew to mountainous proportions in the basketball circa, ended his sensational four-year career at Morris Harvey with numerous school records, just as many state marks and a national single-season scoring figure that seems des- tined to survive for years. It was a bright, sunny day in August, 1928, that George made his first appearance in the King residence on Sixth Street in West Charleston. And less than 22 years later this dark-haired gent had not only Sixth Street, but the whole nation talking about his astronomical scoring exploits. George King ' s youth was spent in the most conventional way. A thoughtful, well-behaved and mannerly little boy, he made all the jumps from the cradle to young manhood in typical American boyish style. His mother, who gives the appearance of a " typical mother " and from whom George undoubtedly inherited his friendliness and good nature, can recall only one " mean thing " that George did while he was small. One day George slipped away from home and went to see a friend of his mother ' s that lived on Garvin Avenue, located in the West Side hill section. His mother was frightened to death when she realized that he was gone from around the house, but the friend phoned her shortly and said she had spotted George from her living-room window. And as she recalls the incident George was " just a laughing and coming up the hill. " Glenwood Grade School was the youngster ' s first stop on the road to education and that was when George adopted football as " his game. " Little George played football all the time and size made no noticeable difference. Every time he trooped off to the neighbor- hood playing field, located in back of the King home, his mother feared for his safe return. George never missed a football game when he was small and his mother remarked that he not only lived the game, but he actually ate it, too. His mother remembered that he would just dash in the house, gobble his meals down, and be off to the wars again. You can imagine the chagrin this caused Mrs. King. Woodrow Wilson Junior High School can now be marked as an historic shrine. For it was at the " school on the knoll " that George first had his taste of basketball and the rest is history. Corky Snyder, George ' s best pal in junior high days, talked George into going out for basketball at Woodrow Wilson just " to keep me company. " But after the first three games Coach The house where George was born and spent his life before marriage still is occupied by his mother and father and a few bulldogs. Sisters Helen, Margie and Katie (center) hold on to baby brother George. George was a strapping one-and-a-half year cider. At three George was pedaling a tri- lycle (right) and who would have thought that in eighteen years this chubby little ras al would pedal himself to the top spot in basketball storing • ’story. 84 Toby Chandler tagged George as captain and he went on to lead his team to the city championship. In spite of his small stature, George performed at center and was showing early signs of devel- oping into the great passer that he now is. But actually his first basketball experience wasn ' t under Toby Chandler at Woodrow Wilson. But it was while he was a student at Wilson. George didn ' t play junior high ball until the ninth grade. But in the seventh grade he got his initial start under Eddie Lampton who was coaching a junior team at the YMCA. During the eighth grade George played basketball for Joe Tebachek, also a physical instructor at the Y. His three years in junior high school were centered around the gridiron. George had dreams of becoming a big football star and not even his small frame was going to deprive him of the chance of trying. But it just wasn ' t in the books for the little lad to make a go of it on the gridiron. He started his first game when he was in the ninth grade. In the first half of the contest George let a pass sail over his head and as George says, " That was my football career. " George developed into a little Romeo during his junior high days. He would go to all the dances sponsored by his mother ' s Shrine lodge and dance with all the ladies present. His mother recalls with a chuckle that " he was quite a boy for thirteen years old. " Then George had the good fortune of playing for the same coach all through high school. George was on the " B " team at Stonewall Jackson in his sophomore year and Clyde " Pud " Hutson was the mentor. Before the start of his junior year and a crack at the varsity, Shorty Fields resigned his Stonewall coaching posi- tion for a job with a local glass plant, and Hutson took the varsity coaching reins. George was a first string performer in his final two years and led the team, largely abetted by George Pierson, Bill Jarrett and Bobby Blubaugh, into the finals of the 1946 state tournament at Morgantown where they dropped a heart-breaker to Logan by 40-37. Tex King and his Buck Jones cowboy outfit (left) lias the terror of the neighborhood when George hit the five year mark. At the age of seven George and his family vacationed in Ocean View.

George and his bulldog (right) rollick in the snow as the future cage great was pressing twelve. A boy, his dog and a good snow. Ah, sweet memories of youth. Where in the world did he get that hat seems to be the question in the photo at left, but George is a solid young man of twelve beneath it all. The first picture of George in a basketball uniform shows him as a member of John Tebachek’s YMCA junior team. That ' s George in the second row, number 11. And on the other end of the same row can be found Ralph Holmes with his head tilted back and his ears flapping. George was quite a star but still preferred football as his No. 1 sport. George is shown in the next picture (on the right, that is) in California after graduating from high school where he had just completed two years of great basketball for Stonewall Jackson. The 18-year-old gentleman is feeding a fawn while a nephew looks on. 85 A stretch, a yawn, and a gentle heave-ho from Jeanne and George is all ready to face another day. Mr. Basketball scrubs his teeth (center) while saying to himself. “Why did ' that Harveyan bunch have to come so early in the mcrningt ” George and Jeanne get a big kick out of doing the break- fast dishes. Really, George got the big kick — from Jeanne — to get him to help. George picked up the fundamentals of the game under Hutson and you couldn ' t find o better coach in the state to tutor you in the sometimes forgotten art of knowing what the game is all about. Hutson is a fundamentalist from the word go and is especially adept at drilling the art of ball-handling into his pro- teges. During his high school tenure George utterly hated to work on the King farm, which is located in the Vandalia section of South Charleston. But he got in his licks as a farmer as his mother was the farmer of the family and ruled the King youngsters with an iron hand. If George ' s " best pal " had been around, which is his Dad, he would probably escaped the rigors of farming, but his father was usually " on the road " as a traveling salesman for the Charleston Hardware Company. After graduation from Stonewall Jackson, George was going to Marshall College and work his way through and forget all about basketball. But then came a moment in the good-looking youth ' s life that was destined to write history into basketball ' s dusty record annals. Bill Jarrett, a teammate and good friend at Stonewall, talked him into going to Morris Harvey. Eddie King made the most profitable decision in his coaching career when he offered George a scholarship to play basketball. George had gone to school the first semester on a scholarship while serving as student manager of the football team. George saw the chance to pay his way through school and play basketball at the same time and he leaped at the opportunity. George was determined to put himself through college as his Dad had sent him to camp for eight summers and that takes a mighty toll on the pocketbook. The day George received a Morris Harvey uniform he couldn ' t believe it — he just hadn ' t expected a uniform and felt sure he would be cut from the squad any day. Not only did he get a maroon and gold uniform, but Eddie King told him he was going to start in the Eagles ' first game of Yum yum and it’s off to school. They do all right for an old married couple. George deposits his books in the back seat (center) as he prepares to drive off for the south banks of the Kanawha. And to prove that he doei have time for something besides basketball, here is George tn class — and looking very attentive. 86 George stoics away some chow in the cafeteria while Gene Gurtis hungrily looki on. In the center picture , George is shown with the four boys that he began and ended his career with at Morris Harvey. Flanking George to his left arc Bill Bordas, Sonny Moran and Don ( Sheriff ) McIntyre. King pulls on his shoes (right) to begin that long, hard practice grind. the 1946-47 season against Cedarville, Ohio. But George still couldn ' t believe that Dame Fortune had smiled on him so radi- antly and the night before that opening game he had visions of the whole thing being one big, bad joke. But start he did and he bagged 1 8 points and the rest is as familiar to Morris Harvey students as a psychology lecture by Dr. Merry. George says that first game gave him the confidence he needed to play in collegiate circles and he proved that confidence by garnering 20 points for the first time in his career in his fourth collegiate contest against West Virginia Wesleyan. Fate had stepped in again to change the course of the good- natured hot-shot when he made his first appearance as a Golden Eagle. During his high school career he had played a guard position, but Eddie King moved the nervous young man to a for- ward and from there George was to climb to the highest heights ever attained by a basketball player since Dr. Naismith hung up the first peach basket in a YMCA gymnasium in 1 882 to start a " craze " that was to become America ' s No. 1 participant and spectator sport. As Pud Hutson remarked recently, " I knew George would have made a great scoring forward in high school, but he was much more valuable to me in the back court. " Hutson thinks George would make a great coach if he enters the profession but it looks as though George is set with the Phillips Oilers. Hutson added with a shake of his head and a pleased chuckle, " He really made a name for himself, didn ' t he? " George dumped in 373 points in his freshman year for a splendid average of 15.5 per game. But it was in his sophomore year that George really started the town talking about his exploits and when it will end nobody knows. King swished 440 points in his second season for an average of 19.1 a contest. But George ' s incessant practicing at the YMCA really paid off in his junior season when the hardwood artist clipped the cords for 757 points and an average of 29.1 points per contest. That staggering total left him only twenty points short of the George hits the books (left) after coming home from a hard practice session. Jeanne is engaged in her favorite hobby ( center ) of keeping up the jam-packed scrapbook. That’s a full time job.

The picture was snapped in front of an historic old castle in Canada. all-time single-season scoring record and was good enough to rank him as the top scorer in the nation for the 1948-49 season. But on June 1 8 ; 1949, George King " took unto himself a bride. " The lovely Jeanne Grieder became Mrs. George King at Christ Church Methodist on that beautiful Spring evening and matrimony only tended to bouy Mr. Basketball to heights un- equaled in the history of the sport. For it was during the 1949-50 season that George sent 967 points through the nets in 31 games for a new national record that may stand long enough for a George King, Jr., to take a crack at it. His average of 31.19 was also a new national stand- ard as it marked the first time that a collegiate eager had aver- aged over 30 points a game during the season. George is never satisfied with his performances and finds many of his own mistakes in every game. George often lays awake trying to figure out ways to correct his misdemeanors — but since he told us about his mistakes, we have been lying awake trying to figure out what they were. The All-American cage artist doesn ' t pay much attention to the cat-calls and boos away from home. He just accepts it as all other great athletes have had to do. The greatest men in sports — Babe Ruth, Bobby Jones, Jack Dempsey, Joe DiMaggio — all have felt boos resounding in their eardrums, but when the boo die away their greatness remains. George attributes his scoring success to his handling th fast break on the Morris Harvey team that led the nation tw years running in average points scored per game. George opine that he shot three out of every five times that Morris Harve ' got the ball, and as everyone knows his one-handed push sho from the foul line was a deadlier weapon than a 500-pound bomb George never talked about his points. In fact, Jeanne worrie more about a game than George did and for George ' s points, well she couldn ' t sit still a minute wondering about the ultimate out come of hubby ' s total. Even though practically everyone in th Morris Harvey fieldhouse kept a tally of George ' s points — Jeann was just too nervous for the chore. The night that George smashed the old scoring record Jeann just stood up and " cheered like the rest of the people. " Brown haired Jeanne said she was " real proud of George " when he brok Brooms Abramovic ' s old mark, and that evidently was the under statement of the year. George ' s mother and father were also very proud of their soi that historic night, but then they are very proud of all their fiv living children. The Kings are especially proud of George ' s olde brother, Edward, who is a doctor in California. The six-foot cage king says he would " gladly throw ail m points out the window if we could have had an undefeated seaso and gone to the NAIB tournament in Kansas City. " King started his collegiate career with three other boys wh played four seasons side by side with the great George. Bi Bordas, Sonny Moran, Don McIntyre and George all dreamed c an undefeated season before they hung up their togs for the fine time. But it just wasn ' t in the book, but the 22-9 mark of th past campaign was the finest ever recorded by a Morris Harve team. " The best game I ever played in college was against Whec ton, " avers George in recalling the 1950 contest which found th Eagles easily disposing of the Illinois team that had handed ther their worst shellacking only the previous season. And Wheato brought the same team to town that had so rudely disarrange the Eagles ' nest in a 1949 game. But many observers think George ' s finest performance wc against West Virginia Wesleyan in the 1950 state tournamen All George did was score over half his team ' s points, pass ol for the rest of them, get a great percentage of the rebounds an break up numerous Wesleyan plays only to see his team bow oi 74-70 in the closing minutes. The Golden Eagles then flapped their wings in the directio of Cincinnati and the Garden Invitational Tournament. In th opening game against Xavier University George was held to 1 points, the lowest he had accumulated since mid-way his sophe George has a chat with his charming mother at the King ' s Siith St. horns. At right, Coach Pud Hutson, guardian of basketball fortunes at Ston wall Jackson, recalls pleasant days when George led his 19Jf6 team to th state tournament at Morgantown. 88 Conch Eddie King presents his star pupil icith the hall that George pumped through the nets to record his 778th point of the season to eclipse the old national record. more season. But what the fans didn ' t realize was that George was playing with a bad case of sinus trouble and a temperature that would have placed a less hardy soul on the flat of his back. The cage ace recuperated sufficiently to hit the floor the next night against highly touted William and Mary College and flip in 29 points for the greatest individual performance turned in during the two-day event. For his great leadership, his undisputed mastery of the court and his determination to win even while seriously ill the sports writers and sports announcers covering the big Cincinnati tourney voted him as the " Most Valuable Player. " A sports writer for the Cincinnati Enquirer who had watched Ohio State ' s famous Dick Schnittker in action many times during the season remarked that " the only thing Schnittker had that George didn ' t was a big name school behind him. " And truer words were never spoken. George ranked high on everybody ' s All-American selections but his highest spot on the mythical squad came on the honorable mention list. George was named on the All-Eastern second team, but his true greatness was too retarded because he was playing for a small school. In the opinion of all coaches, sports writers and former basketball players who have viewed the Morris Harvey flash in action he is the greatest they have ever seen step on a basketball court. George classifies the victories over Wheaton, Washington and Lee and Texas Wesleyan (twice) as the biggest thrills of his col- legiate career. Of course the records he cracked, the honor accorded him in Cincinnati, the Bill Stern award and numerous other accolades have thrilled George to a great extent, but his one desire in basketball was to win and it was in accomplishing that end that George derived his greatest satisfaction. Marshall ' s famed Andy Tonkovich draws George ' s praise as the finest defensive demon he has ever played against. In four games against Marshall, and with Tonkovich breathing down his neck, George shows 1 8 points as his best output and in his frosh campaign garnered an almost unbelievable seven points against the Thundering Herd. Marv Johnson and Bud Shaffer of Wheaton and Carl Payne, the dandy of Davis-Elkins, are rated by George as being tops offensively. George also thinks highly of Marshall ' s Gene James, even though the big All-American center never put on too im- pressive a show in his performances against Morris Harvey. A quiet, slow-moving, soft-spoken lad from Alderson-Broaddus, Ray " Treetop " Bowers, is tops in George ' s book for good sports- manship. King has nothing but glowing words for the big A-B center and ironically enough, it was over big " Treetop ' s " out- stretched arms that George tipped in the 778th point of his final season to break the old scoring record. George joined the Dayton All-Stars after the Cincinnati tourna- ment to play in the National AAU meet in Denver, Colorado, and it was while in the western metropolis that King was approached by the famed Phillips Oilers and came to terms to join their organization and play basketball with the squad that is regarded as the most famous in the history of the sport. Numerous professional teams, and a like amount of AAU- rated outfits, were after the services of the modest young man from Sixth Street. But George decided to cast his lot with the Oilers where he is guaranteed of a fine job for the rest of his working days and to be a member of a team that is rivaled only by the Harlem Globetrotters as the greatest in the game. George is a good student, is a member of the Phi Sigma Phi fraternity and is listed in Who ' s Who Among Students in Amer- ican Colleges and Universities. His pet athletic endeavor besides throwing an inflated sphere toward the orange hoop, is the great American pastime of softball. George played in the City Softball League last summer and, as in basketball, he won plaudits for his great sportsmanship, both on and off the playing field. George claims to be spoiled, but his parents and his numerous friends don ' t seem to think so in the least. George wears the same size hat now as when he left Stonewall Jackson four years ago and made a " decision " to forget about basketball. Mrs. Nattie Anderson at the ripe young age of 82 has been a follower of George since he was " knee-high to a grasshopper. " She never forgets him at Christmas, on birthdays and is an avid fan — not only the fan of a great athletic personage, but of a fine young man as well. Her idolation of George is shown in small ways but it is real, sincere and down-to-earth and she ranks as George ' s number one fan. And Mrs. Anderson ' s statement, " I claim George as my own, " very well expresses the sentiments of Morris Harvey students, youngsters and fans of all ages, from all walks of life and many sections of the country. The name George King will never make its departure from the Morris Harvey campus. It is indelibly inscribed in the institution ' s past and will be even more prominent in the future. The aroused interest in Morris Harvey, its expanded building program and the support that has been tended that program can be attributed in a large measure to a modest, well-mannered and impeccable master of the hardwoods — George King. And — fate had a hand in it! 89 homecoming Old grads returning to their alma mater for Home- coming, 1950, saw a new and growing college, much changed from the " small " institution from which they received their degrees. Not everything was different, however. Traditionally, there was a gala parade, hard-fought football game, and activities of the day were topped- off with the crowning of " Miss Morris Harvey " at halftime. " Miss Junior, " lovely Keith Ann Moore (shown at left receiving flowers from A. W. Cox, president of the MH Board of Trustees) was elected by student vote to reign on the Homecoming throne. Her attendants were Janet Parkins, " Miss Senior " Jerry Braden, " Miss Sophomore " and Sally Woodrum, " Miss Fresh- man. " Festivities got under way with a colorful afternoon parade through downtown Charleston which included floats by 14 campus organizations. A cup, provided by the Student Council, was awarded Phi Lambda Tau for its parade entry, judged best of the day. Crowning of a thrilled and deserving Queen was the climax to a fun-filled day. Not even the score- board, which obstinately went the wrong way, could dampen the spirits of revelers in Morris Harvey ' s own miniature Mardi Gras.

George (Li I ' Abner) King (shown at right) doesn ' t seem quite so brave off the basketball court as Ramona (Daisy Mae) Shipley seems to have a hold on her fella for the day. These two were elected by student vote and a wiser selec- tion couldn ' t have been made. After 364 days of safety from the clutches of mate-seekin ' female women, comes a day when one little trip or slip brings complete and irreparable disaster. From the crack of a pistol to sundown — the most dangerous day in an eligible man ' s whole life. That ' s Sadie ' s Day, Dogpatch, U. S. A. Her day in South Ruffner, U. S. A., is little different. Characters from the pages of Li I ' Abner in ragged, colorful garb turn November 1 1 into one of the best celebrations sponsored by Morris Harvey during the year. One of the biggest and best days came in ' 49, starting with a gun-totin ' , jug-swinging parade and climaxed by a merry, mauling chase over the stripes of Laidley Field. The daddy of it all, Al Capp, has said often that he considers Sadie Haw- kins Day at Morris Harvey best of all. That ' s because it ' s a day that has really caught on at the college. Every- one lets his hair down, his beard grow, and gets into the act. Zeta Kappa ' s float, depicting the similarity between " this air we breathe " and the Dogpatch Skonk Works, took best-float honors, and George Casey ' s version of Sadie rolled ' em off the Laidley bleachers.

Sally Woodrum “TtCtM S frJuMuxre Jerry Braden 92 93 Jllen’g Untramurate Recreation is not the sole purpose of college life but should be regarded as a valuable part of the stu- dent ' s experience. There are many opportunities for guidance in an intramural program with the contact between the faculty advisor and student participants, team managers and officials. There are opportunities to guide the participants in their attitudes toward their teammates, their opponents, officials and safety to themselves and others. Intramural sports provide many occasions for the students to develop leadership by serving as members of the intramural council and as team managers. The intramural program at Morris Harvey pro- vides physical recreation activities to the entire stu- dent body. Vast improvements have been made in the program since its beginning in the fall of 1947. During the 1949- 50 school year 581 students par- ticipated in the intramural program. Intramural sports provide opportunities for the stu- dent to meet and play with other students one scarcely knows. They exchange views and find mutual inter- ests that make for good social relationships. Intra- mural sports gives the student the opportunity to learn the meaning of loyalty and cooperation. It gives the student experience in group living which will be of value in getting along in numerous social groups in which he will find himself. Intramural champs in football, volleyball and basketball take time out to have their pusses snapped for posterity. The touch football champions (top row, left) carried the tag " Bombers " and they did just that in fighting their way to the top of the heap. They are left to right, front row: Harold Proctor, Gene Anderson, Bob Downey, Ed Curry; back row: Wilson Cstowski, Al Durback, Bob Hoffman, Ralph Johnson, Tom Miller, James Snyder.

They are left to right, front row: Ted Goff, Jerry Frazier; back row: Bobby Wolfe, Jay Thomas, Howard Lowe. 94 Women’s intramural A varied and comprehensive sports program is an important part of the education of women physical education majors. Through participation, they learn the rules of the game as well as those qualities of sportsmanship that make any sport worth playing. Warming up before the game (left). Basketball is popular with the fair sex and they play just as fast and furious a game as the var- sity. Of course, they have different rules — no hair pulling or scratching allowed. How can these gals look so fresh (center) after a workout on the softball field? Must take their make-up kits along. It ' s a welcome sight to see our coeds conditioning their bodies for a long life. Such a welcome sight that a lot of guys just stand and look. Whew! Let ' s take it easy for a while (right). Wonder why the cameraman didn ' t get a closeup of this bevy? Bashful? Nothing like a good, fast game of volleyball to get rid of that extra pat of butter for lunch. Morris Harvey women go in for intramural sports in a big way. Maybe they ' ll never get into the Olympics — might not even see them — but they ' ll have a lot of fun before they leave South Ruffner.

While peeling off the last bandaid and fondly rubbing that final bruise, Morris Harvey gridders looked back on a good season in anybody ' s league — seven wins and two losses. And fans recalled a thrill packed autumn that saw the Eagles land in second place in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Conference, one rung below their championship berth in ' 48. Three MH stars. Captain Tom Bossie, end, Leon McCoy, center, and Dewey Romine, full- back, earned first team posts with the mythical all-conference squad. Highpoints of the grid year were impressive wins over Bowling Green, Ohio, and Appalachian State Teachers College. The Fal- cons of Bowling Green had plastered the South Ruffner eleven in ' 48 by the lopsided score of 48-6, and were surprised, to say the least, when the Golden Birds pulled a 21-0 upset on the local field. Appalachian ' s Mountaineers buzzed into town on Sadie Hawkins Day and appropriately enough got chased — right off Laidley Field to the tune of 21-12. The Eagles were narrowly edged by a Baldwin-Wallace team that overwhelmed them last year, and the only other loss came at the hands of a determined West Virginia Tech squad which nipped Morris Harvey ' s chances for a repeat performance as con- ference champions. The Eagles put a big, red cherry on top of their nine-gome stretch by routing West Virginia Wesleyan 61-6. As the ' 49 squad bowed out, so did scrapping Tom Bossie, and two other starters wound up their MH careers riding the bench because of injuries — Tackle Joe Chenoweth and Halfback Ralph Malus. Halfback Delmar Good and Quarterback Dana Wallace also saw their last action as MH footballers. Malus, voted by his teammates as " Most Valuable Player, " hobbled on crutches to receive his trophy at the final skirmish in a ceremony that brought roars of admiration from 4,000 rain- soaked fans. The rugged halfback suffered a broken foot in an earlier game. Malus, Romine, Trout and freshman sensation Gene Gurtis led the powerful MH running attack in the season opener as the Eagles delivered a note of warning to future opponents by crush- ing Davis-Elkins, 35-0. A large, delighted delegation of team followers traveled to Elkins and saw Eddie King ' s T-style Operation — Victory Coach King talks to the boys and a new strategy is born to throw at the opposition. The Grand ' Old ' Men One of the youngest collegiate coaching staffs in the state looks over a practice session. They are: Head Coach Eddie King and assistants , Verlin ( Sparky ) Adams and Frank Kovach. Overlooked But Not Forgotten The managers ' job is one of obscurity , but their value to a team is measured by things other than tackles and touchdowns. They are: Keno Smith and Charles Siska. click as Quarterbacks Joe Bartges and Pete Anania con- nected with 11 of 17 passes. Big Charlie Hubbard began a sparkling season at end by snagging two TD passes, and the Eagle defense, fea- turing McCoy, Ed Medzerantz, and Chenoweth, proved all but impenetrable, never allowing the Senators closer than 42 yards from the double stripes. Fresh from this dazzling show of power, the Kingmen opened on their home field by tackling a highly-rated Ohio Northern team and chalked up victory number two by a 13-0 count. Just to prove that there is still plenty of foot in Morris Harvey football. Guard Claude " Hopper " Dent began his amazing string of extra point boots, and Bob Dawson ' s booming punts as usual kept the opposition in the hole from the word go. That unbeaten, unscored-on record seemed certain to fall when the Falcons of Bowling Green invaded, but it stood — and how it stood! Practically the same team that walloped the Eagles in ' 48 bowed to Eddie ' s boys 21-0 in a tussel that set grid circles agog. It was Morris Harvey in every department — Anania, Trout and Scragg marked up 93 yards via air and 191 yards on the ground, dwarfing the Falcons ' statistics. Andy Domitrovich, McCoy and Chenoweth played their usual rugged defensive game. Ably bolstered by Bob Folden, Jim Spano, Jim Parton, Dave Wilson, Glen Milam and Dana Wallace, the well balanced Eagle squad claimed a sweet victory. It remained for Randy Cooper and Co. of W. Va. Tech to snap the Eagles ' streak in a rugged battle of fumbles before a Homecoming crowd of 9,000, the best MH turn- out in history, under the Laidley lights. Cooper, lively Tech halfback, stole the show as MH fell, 13-7, after muffing several chances to even the count. Morris Harvey ' s lone marker was carried over by Whitey Scragg after a drive boosted by the churning legs of Ralph Malus. Hopper Dent converted, and that was the scoring story for the locals. Rebounding from the stinging defeat at the hands of the strong Montgomery eleven, the Eagles slipped and slid on a muddy field to overpower a floundering Shep- herd College squad, 19-6. Continuing their rampage, the Eagles traveled south of the border to Kentucky to hand Georgetown College one of its worst defeats of the year by a score of 33-0. Anania ' s passes again featured the MH attack, with Scragg and Hubbard snagging one six-point toss apiece. Romine bulled 14 yards for a tally, and Jack Wolfe skirted end for another. Despite the scoreboard reading, the MH vs. Baldwin- Wallace tilt was a moral victory for Eagle fans and grid- ders. The Ohio delegation was a sure-fire favorite to trip the local boys with nearly the same squad that won 53-7 in 1948. In comparison, their 27-14 win in ' 49 was a slim one. It was a beautiful passing attack led by Tommy Phil- lips that put the game on ice for the Berea, O., Yellow Jackets. His tosses set up all the Jackets ' scores, with Phillips himself scoring two and passing for a third. Playing one of the best of many great games, Dewey Romine, bone-crushing Eagle fullback, scored both MH touchdowns and time and again brought the fans off the bleachers to acclaim his displays of sheer manpower. On both his touchdown sprints, " The Bull " carried and dragged roughly — and we mean roughly — half of the B-W lineup. On Sadie ' s Day, 1949, a motley, jug-totin ' crew saw the South Ruffner lads sweep to a 21-12 victory over the Appalachian Mountaineers from Boone, N. C. The Mountaineers gained plenty of yardage through the Eagles ' line, but McCoy, though injured, filled the chink and held when it counted. The season ' s final game pitted a battle-wizened MH squad against W. Va. Wesleyan and the result was slaugh- ter. Hapless Wesleyan, completely outmanned and out- classed, was smothered under an onslaught of touchdowns that added up to a grand total of 61 to six. Delmar " Plenty " Good was just that, scoring three touchdowns in his final game in a Morris Harvey uniform. Anania, back in the saddle after being sidelined by in- juries, threw three touchdown passes. Getting in on the MH scoring besides Good were Wolfe, Hubbard (2), Bossie, Gurtis and Scragg. Dent scored with seven of nine conversions to bring his season total to 22 of 29 attempts. The triumphant Turkey Day clash marked the com- pletion of a fine coaching job by Eddie King and his assistants, Verlin " Sparky " Adams and Frank Kovach. It also dropped the curtain on a fine, scrappy Mor- ris Harvey team that, victorious or not, won praise and recognition for themselves, their coaches and their college.

Thorndike has one thing in common with a chap named Web- ster. They both compiled dictionaries. And our good friend Thorn- dike defines basketball as " a game played with a large, round leather ball by two teams of five players each. The players try to toss the ball through a net shaped like a basket ' But the 1949-50 edition of Morris Harvey ' s Golden Eagle hoopsters didn ' t just try to toss the ball through a net. They did it! And they did it so proficiently as to establish a new national average per game scoring record with over 80 points a game for 3 1 contests. A personable young man with a knack for tossing the old sphere through the netting was in a large manner responsible for setting a new national team scoring mark, but the fellow referred to — George King — had a lot of assistance from a supporting cast that comprised the finest basketball team in Morris Harvey history. Starters Sonny Moran, Bill Bordas, Walt Kaczkowski and Jim Eaton supplied the spark that enabled substitutes Odell Thompson, Diz Titcher, Don McIntyre, Ralph Holmes, Isaac Ganim, Jimmy Byrd, Carl McLaughlin, Jim Goddard, Bob Johnson and Jim Ker- wood to enter the fray and keep the fire burning.

Games that will always stand out in the minds of Morris Harvey students were numerous during the 1949-50 season. The Eagles 92-56 spanking of the Bears from W. Va. Tech marked the most decisive victory over our Kanawha River rivals in the long and heated rivalry. Texas Wesleyan ' s touring Cowboys came to town for the sec- ond time in three years and again the Eagles upset the dope bucket by roping the cowpokes, 71-66, in a thriller. Wheaton, which only the year before had soundly whipped the South Ruffners, invaded the capital city with practically the same lineup and fell victim to a pulverizing onslaught, led by Captain George King. The score was 97-75 in the loudest reversal of pre-game favoritism in the short regime of the Student Activ- ities Building. An 88-69 setback handed NAIB participant Davis-Elkins was the most decisive margin of victory rolled up against the Senators during the season. Another victory that will long be remembered was against little Tiffin University — which incidentally is the smallest accred- ited university in the world. The score was 1 1 7-52, but George King threw in 63 points for a new state single game scorii record. A loss will also take its place with the victories that will ling in the minds of Morris Harvey cage fans. It came in the sen finals of the state collegiate tourney at Buckhannon when t hometown Wesleyan Bobcats clawed the Eagles out of champio ship contention by 74-70. But the never-say-die play of Geor King will live as an inspiration of winning spirit to future wear of the maroon and gold. The hustling, streaking play of Kaczkowski; the long-arm tip-ins of Eaton; the calm deliberateness of Moran; the ro faced hard playing of Bordas; the scrappy work of little Holmt the when-they-counted fielders of Thompson; the kick-and-jur shots of Johnson; the inspired playing of the rest of the bene warmers; and of course the brilliant performances and unmatch leadership of King combined to grace the MH campus with a be of basketball boys that may never be duplicated.
