The Comet Published weekly during the regular school year, The Comet provides campus news and commentaries on current local affairs. The newspaper is staffed and edited entirely by Morris Harvey students. Full tuition scholarships are granted to the editor and business manager. For the past 34 years The Comet has given stu¬ dents the opportunity to put into practice what they have learned in the various journalism classes. Those working on the business side get practical experi¬ ence in advertising, layout, and circulation pro¬ cedures. Aside from its reportorial and business functions, the paper has been a medium of entertainment. Bob Barron ' s “The Barron Waste " wowed students the first semester while David Parker ' s “Parkerites " followed suit the second term. This year The Comet followed the modern trend in newspaper design by adopting the flush left headline and using san-serif type faces. Connie Menefee, business manager, and Ed Morris, editor-in-chief.

The Harvey an The 1955-56 Harveyan is one of the most unique editions ever published by Morris Harvey students. Departing from the usual full-year preparation period, this year ' s annual was compiled, in its en¬ tirety, during the second semester. Another unusual factor is that the annual con¬ tains no advertising. Funds for its publication costs were raised on a 50-50 basis by the college and student subscribers. As is the purpose of all yearbooks, the Harveyan attempts to present a pictorial record of the past year with sidelights on individual students, their organizations, and activities. This edition covers the period from March, 1955, to March, 1956. The Harveyan editor and chief photographer are awarded full tuition scholarships. This year, how¬ ever, two co-editors were appointed. Both acted in the double capacity of editor and photographer. Any student may apply for Harveyan positions but the inherent nature of the work makes some previous vious experi dV Staff for this year ' s Harveyan, standing left to right, include Flora Lee Hanger, Frances Jones, Archie Snedegar, Helen Ardigo, Ed Morris, Ed Maslow, and Ernest Martin.

Student Cou noil Elected each spring by popular vote, the Student Council regulates and initiates most student ac¬ tivities. In addition to the four officers, the Council is composed of two delegates from each class. Besides the honor of belonging to the Student Council, the members obtain valuable experience in administrative work and in human relations. As it is in most years, the major project of the current Council was the home-coming activities. Probably next in importance was the Sadie Hawkins Day ceremonies. Other projects included the pub¬ lication of a student handbook, the renovation and renaming of the snack bar, the series of weekly student mixes, and the May Day Sing. By its direct contact with the Panhellenic Coun¬ cil and other groups through the Student Round Table, the Council contributes greatly toward the solving of campus problems, and at the same time discovers student reaction to pertinent questions. Left fo right-: Jim Gibson, sergeant-at-arms; Dallas Ashby, vice- president; Joanne Rutroff, secretary-treasurer; and Ezra " Easy " Boehm, president. Co-ordinating and supervising the activities of the nine Greek-letter organizations on campus, the Panhellenic Council is one of the college ' s most important governing bodies. Each semester the Council, in joint action with the administration, formulates the rules for rushing, bidding, and pledging. It also sees that each fra¬ ternity and sorority is provided with lists of eligible prospective members. This year, Pan-Hell worked closely with the Student Council in the home-coming activities, with the speech department during the December fo¬ rensic meet here, and played a prominent part in the newly-formed Student Round Table. The Coun¬ cil was also instrumental in promoting the idea of publishing an annual for the 1955-56 year. Membership is made up of the three council officers and two representatives from each Greek organization. Officers are elected during the latter part of the spring semester. ICAL W.A.A.

Alpha Mu was organized on October 14, 1925, to pro¬ mote friendly social relations on the campus, as well as to develop character and personality within the sorority. Active in all phases of campus life, the Alpha Mu ' s are represented in choir, band, FTA, Tempo Club, Pan- hellenic Council, Wesley Foundation, Ushers Club, Sadie Hawkins Day, and Home-coming. Special honors received by the sorority this year were attendants to Miss Greek and attendant to Home-coming Queen. The activities they sponsored were numerous bake sales, parties, annual fashion show, tea, and annual spring formal.

I Phi Kappa Kappa Sorority, largest sorority on campus, was organized in 1928. An active organization, the Phi Kaps sponsor many campus activities, including Howdy Day, Twilight Tea, the Hawaiian Rush Party, Sock Hop, Mother ' s Day Tea, Party for Honorary Members, Bowery Party, Style Show for all Morris Harvey students, party given by pledges for the actives, the spring formal, and the White Rose Ball. Besides the busy life on campus, the Phi Kappa Kappa women help in the community. They gave a party for the Hillcrest Sanitarium children at Easter, and went to the Davis Child Shelter twice weekly to help tutor the children. Many honors have come to the Phi Kappa women. They won the May Day Sing last spring, when Patty Hendrickson reigned as May Queen with Barbara Ross, Nancy Henry, Jean Parkins, and Judy McCutcheon as her attendants. Phi Kappa Kappa president, Joanne White, was this year ' s Home-coming Queen with Phi Kap attendants Doph Turley, and Barbara Tucker, who was Miss West Virginia for 1955. Jean Parkins was chosen Miss Greek at the Zeta Kappa all-Greek dance. The Phi Kappa Kappa sorority boasts six girls in Who ' s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities for 1956.

This makes Zeta Mu the youngest on campus. The organization was founded in 1921 at Stephens Col¬ lege for Women, Columbia, Missouri. They are interna¬ tionally linked, having sisters in Japan, Korea, Africa and England. The objectives of this sorority is to establish a perpetual bond of friendship among its members, to develop a strong character and to broaden moral, social and intellectual life. Activities include a home-coming luncheon for actives and alumnae, and annual tea and western rush party. The Zeta Mu ' s are active in Blackfriars, Choir, Future Teachers of America, Panhellenic Council, Alpha Psi Omega, and assist with forensic meets. Though they had only three active members the first semester, they kept up tradition by decorating Laidley Field for the annual Home-coming game with Tech. Their sponsor is Miss Emma Jean Simpson, physical education instructor. Mary Lou Snodgrass, vice president Lois Shirey, secretary-treasurer Wyonia Cummings, pledge mistress Miss Emma Jean Simpson, sponsor Dean Frazier, president Although one of the youngest fraternities on the Morris Harvey campus, Kappa Sigma Kappa has the distinction of being the college ' s only national-international group. The first chapter was established in 1867 at Virginia Military Institute. Since then the fraternity has spread to all parts of the globe—presently comprised of 50 chapters. There are five chapters in West Virginia alone. Kappa Sigma Kappa pioneered the idea of " Help Week " and continues to emphasize a service period rather than the rough initiation period still in practice by many other groups. At Morris Harvey, the Kappa Sigs led all other frater¬ nities in overall scholastic averages for the last semester of the 1954-55 school year. This year the fraternity won the Greek intramural basketball crown. An effort to strengthen the ties between the different state chapters was successfully made through a series of basketball games and various social events.

The goals of the fraternity have been the same since its organization. Those are uniting men students, instilling a spirit of campus fellowship, and promoting the interests of the college. The events sponsored this year are the Turkey Hop, the Bunny Hop, Christmas formal, spring formal, dinner dance and numerous stag parties for members only. Having the only fraternity alumni association, men of the Phi Sigma Phi can enter into this organization upon graduation from Morris Harvey, and can therefore keep in close connection with the chapter on campus. When Morris Harvey was taking pledges for the now present Administration Building, the men of Phi Sigma Phi contributed $300 to the building fund. During the building fund campaign of this year the men of the fraternity came through with $2,160.

Zeta Kappa activities were carried on admirably by its 1956 members in the tradition of the fraternity, the first social fraternity to come to the Morris Harvey campus. Zeta Kappa members have sponsored many social ac¬ tivities on campus, including the All-Greek Dance, Christ¬ mas party and the Spring Formal. Miss Jean Parkins reigned as Miss Greek. Band, Glee Club, Art Guild, Comet Staff, Wesley Foun¬ dation, Ministerial Association, intramurals and Tempo club comprise some of the organizations in which ZK members have actives. A ZK holds the second highest position in the governing body of the Greeks. " Create, not imitate " is the motto of the Zeta Kappa Fraternity and their pledge program carries out a high sense of purpose undergirded by ideals of ethics and comradeship. A great opportunity lies within this fraternity for service and self development.

Freeman bulled through the middle from the one for the score. The Big Green ' s three touchdowns in the second half helped contribute to the 46-7 rout. Victory starved Morris Harvey upset the favored Youngstown Penguins 14-12 in the fourth game of the campaign. After 12 plays in the opening stanza, Joe Romano sprinted 30 yards for the first Gee Eagles ' tally. Bob Brown followed with the extra point. Jim Stec, junior end Bill Chandler, junior guard Morris Harvey traveled to Tennessee to open the 1955 football season, September 16. Middle Tennessee upset the local gridders with an excellent passing game and they were also really tough in the clutch, completing two fourth- down passes to down the Golden Eagles. The Eagles ' best performance of the game came in the third period when they recovered a mid-field fumble and drove for their only touchdown. Paul Rice plunged over from the one on a quarterback sneak and Bob Brown con¬ verted for the Eagles ' only point. The 1954 Tangerine Bowl Champions, University of Tampa Spartans, arrived in Charleston, September 24, for a return match with Morris Harvey. The Gee Eagles were the Spartans ' opponents in the ' 54 Tangerine Bowl classic. South Charleston ' s Oakes Field was the scene of this see-saw battle. Tampa ' s Bill Nuznoff ran from the Eagles ' 15 for the first tally of the game. Bob Gambrelle ' s kick went wild and the Spartans led 6-0. Tampa ' s Don Herndon took the second-half kickoff for a 57-yard sprint down the field before being brought down and fumbled on the MH 35. Jim Stec grabbed the ball for Morris Harvey. Ray Jones, on the next play, took the ball to the Eagles ' 42. He then made a 50-yard dash before being brought down on the Spartans ' eight. Jones crashed through center on the fourth down for the first Eagles ' score. Bob Brown made the extra point good and the Kingmen led 7-6. The first play of the fourth quarter saw Tampa ' s Tom Spack run around left end for an eight-yard touchdown jaunt. Ted Grune ' s kick was blocked. The Spartans nosed the Golden Eagles 13-7. Len Hellyer drove seven yards over left tackle, with 53 seconds remaining in the first quarter, Saturday night, Oc¬ tober 1, to start Marshall ' s Big Green towards a 46-7 victory over Morris Harvey. The second Marshall tally came deep in the second quarter. With five minutes remaining, Hellyer plunged from the Eagles ' four-yard line to make the score 14-0. After the kickoff Marshall ' s Cagle Curtis intercepted a pass thrown by the Eagles ' Joe Romano on his own 17 and returned it to his own 35-yard line. Six running plays carried the ball to the Morris Harvey 25-yard line. Marshall ' s Zban faked to his right halfback and fullback, then handed the ball to Curtis, his left half¬ back, who ran over the right side of the Eagles ' line for the third touchdown. George Carter, senior tackle Bob Maxwell, senior quarterback ball m In the second half the Penguins recovered a MH fumble on the Eagles ' nine-yard line. A five-yard penalty against Morris Harvey moved the ball to the four and the Penguins ' Dawson legged his way into the end zone for the first Youngstown tally. The try for the extra point failed. In the third period tackle George Carter broke through and rocked fullback Ray Carter of the Penguins into fum¬ bling at the MH 15. Romano and Powers carried the pig¬ skin to the one with Maxwell crashing over for the score. Brown ' s placement was good and the Eagles won 14-6. Morris Harvey added to the Home-coming festivities as they upset the applecart of victory-minded West Virginia Tech, 43-14. Golden Eagles led 12-7 after a hard-fought first half. Midway through the third stanza Eddie Coffman crashed through the center line and ran 67 yards for the score. John Bieletti kicked the only extra point for the Eagles to make the score 19-7. On touchdown runs made by Coffman and Dick Powers the score stood 31-7. Tech rallied briefly, moving the ball 51 yards for a touchdown. Weese ' s placement made it 31-14. With Joe Cielensky as quarterback, the Eagles parlayed the ensuing kickoff into a 65-yard touchdown drive. Jim Thornton sparked the drive and finally scored from the eight to make it 37-14. With time running out, Shreves passed. MH ' s Billy Campbell intercepted and sprinted 62 yards downfield for the Gee Birds ' seventh TD. That left the scoreboard with a 43-14 count and Tech with a broken four-game winning streak. Fullback Eddie Coffman raced 57 yards early in the third period to set up Morris Harvey ' s lone touchdown of the evening, as the Eastern Kentucky ' Maroons ' downed the South Ruffners 20-6, October 29, at Richmond, Ky. On three runs of 13, 14, and 57 yards the Maroons bulldozed their way for three touchdowns. Playing one of their best games of the season, the Golden Eagles clawed the Concord Mountain Lions to shreds as they unleashed a devastating offense. The Gee Birds made the Mountain Lions look Tike kittens as they routed them 61-19. The Eagles scored twice in every quarter but the third, when they crossed the goal line three times on the way to scoring one of the highest single game scores since the Eagles slaughtered W. Va. Tech 61-13. The Eagles used their second team most of the first half after the first platoon ran off touchdown drives of 80 and 54 yards. Morris Harvey routed Moorehead State College, 40-7, November 12. The win evened MH ' s record with four wins and four losses. Gee Eagles ' fullback, Paul Skidmore, picked up 1 1 1 yards and scored twice to lead MH ' s offense. Morris Harvey lost to a powerful Ohio Uni¬ versity team, November 19.

The Golden Eagles used West Virginia Tech as the pivot point to vault them into the undisputed leadership of the W.V.I.C., as they downed the Techmen 97-84, January 21, in Charleston.

We Play Baseball Too Posting a six and six record last year with victories over such powers as Marshall, Marietta, and West Virginia Tech, Coach Sparky Adams looks to ' 56 campaigns with optimism. Tommy Dixon, last year ' s leading batter and centerfielder, will bolster the Eagles ' lineup along with big Melvin Vaughn at first base. Bob Brown, Bob Hill, and Pug Lowery will be back for mound duties along with some promising fresh¬ men to add to the already potent hill men. Joe Romano, Ray Jones, and Bob Maxw ell are expected to give the Eagles real as they enter the ' 56 diamond activity with a seasoned veteran team. Only two losses were suffered by this year ' s regulars. One was versatile Jim Carr, and playmaker George Bennett at shortstop.
