During the day and between-class breaks the time is monopolized by friendly groups in the snack bar. A typical scene is the one shown in the upper right photo. A few decorations, a band, and gaily dressed students turn the halls, which are lounged in during the day, into a dance floor. Co-eds have a pleasant existence with a mixture of classes, snack bar comradeship, and social activities to fill the extra evening hours. 2 People involved are among the most important factors deciding the success of an institution. At Morris Harvey, student mixes are stressed and encouraged. Dr. Leonard Riggleman, president of the college, plays host to the first student gathering of the year with the President ' s Reception. In the picture below a group of students get acquainted at the reception while sipping punch and posing for the photographer. They are from left to right: Pat Kelly, Jim Vandell, Bill Childers, Francis Jones, Grant Barnett, Jackie Dye, Clarence (Pug) Lowery, and Joe Romano. Certain to play a part in adding new acquaintances will be the new girls dormitory being constructed. Loretta Hammer and a friend look over the blueprint while workmen lay out the walls. Another example of the mixture of people at Morris Harvey is its cosmopolitan community being added to each semester. Eight students from other nations are enrolled this year. Sophomore Julia Fuller explains some of the school ' s activities in the photo at lower right. They are Yaing Sook Chum and Haing Ug Choi from Korea. Close friendship be- tween students create the kind of school spirit Morris Harvey is working for. 4 classes 6 Leader of the band for the day is Barbara Koontz, one of the student-teachers in the education department. Her rhythm band is the first grade which she taught this year. Preparing for music class are these pretty coeds. Music classes range from basic music appreciation to intricate harmony studies. Comparing pottery are these four art students who have made several pieces with the department ' s kiln. 7 enjoy the ivities For after-the-game dances and formal get-to-gethers, the Reception Hall is a favorite spot.

There are many opportunities for guidance in an intra- mural program with the contact between the faculty advisor and student participants, team managers and officials. There are oppor- tunities to guide the participants in their at- titudes toward their teammates, their op- ponents, officials, and safety to themselves and others. The intramural program at Morris Harvey provides physical recreation activities to the entire student body. Intramural sports provide opportunities for the student to meet and play with other stu- dents. They exchange views and find mutual interests that make for good social relation- ships. Intramural sports give the student op- portunity to learn the meaning of loyalty and co-operation. The volleyball championship was won by Y-Men with So. Dorm placing second.

Completing their most successful season since 1950, the Golden Eagles of Morris Harvey posted an 8 and 1 record, losing only to traditional foe Marshall College 25-14. Breezing through four West Virginia Conference foes for their fifth consecutive conference champion- ship, the Eagles ruled the roost again in the W.V.I.C. Salem fell before the Eagle onslaught in the season ' s opener at Laidley field 41-6 as the Gold and Maroon gave a preview of things to come. Otterbein and Baldwin-Wallace, neighboring Ohio schools, were next on the schedule. The " Otters " a newcomer to the agenda were defeated 34-7. B-W, a thorn in the GE ' s side for three previous seasons, were sent home with a humiliating 27-6 setback. The only blemish on the 1954 grid season was the disheartening 25-14 loss at the hands of Marshall Col- lege at Fairfield Stadium in Huntington, W. Va. West Liberty, West Virginia Tech, Heidleburg, Con- cord, and Moorehead remained on the Gold and Maroon schedule and between them only three touch- downs were scored against the defensive minded King ' s-Men. Cigar Bowl bound with the hopes of a fourth straight post-season victory the Eagles were turned back 21-0 at Tampa, Florida by the Spartans of Tampa University to conclude their season with an impressive 8-2 record. 102 Bob Hill and Ray Jones lift Salem player high, as Vittone stands by.

Bob Hill moves in a little too late. 107 basketball Morris Harvey ' s Golden Eagles, starting the season off with a considerably " green " team, ended the season very much im- proved, that gives promise for a bright future next year. Dave Rosen, All-Conference and Little All-American selection of last year, was ruled ineligible because of his playing ball at Tiffin College his freshman year. With only one regular to build his team around. Coach Eddie King did a great job of developing the new material on hand. Cap Smith and Davey Hoffman were the only regulars from the previous season, but a knee injury troubled Hoffman until the season was well under way. Smith, the boy who fools every- one with his unconcerning attitude, came into his own at the latter part of the season. A great ball handler with an effective jump shot. Cap played steady ball and was toughest when the pressure was on. Returning also were veterans Dick Darby who returned from the Army and Jack Lawhorn who played good ball this year. Also new to the MH squad was center Jim Vandel from Beckley College, who was runner-up to Smith in scoring, and his team- mate Leland Richmond, a scrappy little guard who hustled con- stantly. Many promising freshmen came on the cage scene this year and the outlook for next year seems very promising. First-year men such as Bill Jones, Frank Martin, Bob Paskel, Larry and Vincent Tyree, and Mike Dayoub comprise a group who should have a bright future at Morris Harvey. One of the most pleasant surprises among the freshmen was footballer Dana Kirk, who showed he had plenty of ability in basketball with his tough re- bounding and rugged play. Starting the season off in high gear the Eagles won their first three games. First Beckley 80-67, then Glenville 99-81, and Davis-Elkins 82-80, before losing to Ohio University 81-88. After winning three of the first four the Eagles then defeated the Republic of China team before losing to conference foes Salem and Alderson-Broaddus. Cap Smith and Jim Vandell were leading the scoring in these first seven games, Cap with 28.2 average and Jim right behind with a 22.2. MH continued to win over WVIC foes as they beat West Liberty 103-94 and Bethany 93-80 to run their conference record to 5-2 and third place. Extending their conference winning streak to fogr straight games the Golden Eagles romped over Potomac State 94-63 and edged the Blue Hawks of Beckley in overtime 87-84. Carrying the scoring load was Cap Smith and Jim Vandell, but other Eagles started playing great ball. Also helping improve the Eagles ' game, though not scoring in the high figures, were Dick Darby, Jack Lawhorn, Leland Richmond, Bob Paskel, Dave Hoffman, Jerry Chandler, and Mike’Dayoub. Meeting high scoring W. Va. Tech tor the first time in the sea- son, the Golden Eagles were defeated 113-91. After losing to Tech, the Eagles hit a slump, dropping games to W. Va. Wesleyan 87-78 and Glenville 90-89. MH got back on their winning ways by defeating Salem 101- 82, and then played a great game upsetting league leading A-B 91-89. Then came a loss to arch-rival Marshall 108-94 and a victory over Concord 110-94 which put the Eagles into a tie for third place.

Definitely the underdog and fifth in the conference standings, a determined and in- spired Morris Harvey five fought an uphill battle to win the 1955 West Virginia Inter- collegiate Conference Tournament champion- ship. Defeating West Liberty in the first round of play 74-67 was supposedly the extent of wins MH could possibly gain, because either high scoring W. Va. Tech or much improved Davis and Elkins would be the outclassed Eagles second round opponent. Tech, the nation ' s leading scorer and George Swyers fought a hard battle before bowing to the Golden Eagles 86-81 for the first time in three starts during the season. Concord, in the semi-finals, put up a valiant resistance but the Gold and Maroon of Charles- ton rolled to an impressive 99-62 victory which assured the Eagles a crack at Alderson- Broaddus in the finals and an NAIA playoff berth. Alderson-Broaddus, regular season cham- pions with a 23-4 record and Carl Hartman who set a new four-year scoring mark, bowed in an overtime thriller 89-86 to the boys from Morris Harvey who had played their hearts out overcoming such tremendous odds. " Cap " Smith, star guard and high scorer for the Eagles, along with center Jim Vandell, placed on the all-tournament team. Morris Harvey ended the campaign with a loss to W. Va.

Coach " Sparky " Adams was greeted with a fine nucleus of nine returning regulars and eleven lettermen. A front line pitching staff consisting of juniors Bob Brown, Bob Hill, Bert Waldron and Clarence Lowery, who are all returning letter- men and well-experienced moundsmen, are ready for action. J. D. Kidd, Bob Douglas, and Buddy Kearns left vacancies at catcher, second base, and third base. These positions if filled by capable players should give MH a rugged and well balanced team. Tommy Dixon and Melvin Vaughn, the team ' s two top hitters of last season, are expected to be the Eagle ' s big threat. Bobby Maxwell and Paul Rice along with Dixon round out the Gold and Maroon ' s fly-chasers. Returning to the shortstop position is sopho- more George Bennett. Backing-up last year ' s starting " nine " are such promising performers as junior Grant Barnette, and sophomores Bill Chandler, Bill Coutz, and Ted Boehm. These boys along with newcomers to the squad will be vieing for starting assignments left open last year.
