Row two: Tom Morris, vice president; Kenneth Higginbotham, president; and Skip Morris, sergeant-at-arms. The 1957-58 Student Council put into ef- fect the new policies of student government set forth in the new constitution which was drawn up and adopted during the 1956-57 term. Under the authority of this document, the student body is now designated the Stu- dent Government Association, and the Student Council is the executive organ of that Associ- ation, consisting of four members elected by the Association-at-large, with the remaining eight being elected by the four classes. Under the leadership of President Kenneth Higginbotham, the Student Council has under- taken a record number of projects. First was the supervision of the Freshman Orientation program. Then in order to provide more on- campus activities, the Council sponsored many student mixes. This year, the Council cooperated with the Speech Department and other organizations to present the First Annual Rose Festival in con- junction with the Forensic Meet. Row one: JoAnn Ciccarello, Jean Gunter, Sylvia Simms, Ruth Ann Campbell, Mrs. Evelyn Harris, Faculty advisor. Row two: Bob Rickard, Tom Morris, Rhemus O ' Dell, Skip Morris.

" - J GREEK GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION The Greek Government Association, until this year operating under the name of Pan- hellenic Council, serves to co-ordinate and regulate the activities of the eight Greek letter organizations on campus.. It is one of the two most important student governing bodies at Morris Harvey. Rules and dates for rushing, bidding and pledging by the Greeks are set up jointly by the GGA and the administration. It also formu- lates lists of those students eligible for mem- bership in any of the Greek organizations. A very successful talent show, Morris Har- vey Presents, was produced by this group in October, 1957. The GGA also worked jointly with the speech department when the latter held its fourth annual invitational forensic meet here in December. Membership of the GGA is comprised of three officers and two representatives from each Greek organization. Officers are elected during the latter part of the Spring semester.

The chief purposes and aims of the ISA are to aid in the full development and ad- justment of the independent students, and to further the development of Morris Harvey College. The two main projects of the group this year were to become members of the national organization (NISA) and to bring to the campus a " name " in the music world. The second project, " Ralph Marterie and His Famous Orchestra " appeared in February for a concert and the Sweetheart Swing. The annual Fool ' s Fling is another social event sponsored by the ISA.

Its aim is to unite young women of congenial tastes into a more intimate fellowship. By means of this fellow- ship and sisterly understanding, each member is given the opportunity of broadening and enriching her life socially, intellectually, physi- cally and spiritually. Howdy Day accompanied by a style show, an annual affair sponsored by the sorority, broke the ice after Fall registration by making " howdy " the day ' s official greeting. Many other activities highlighted the year, such as the Sock Hop, bake sales, Twilight Tea, Ha- waiian Rush Party, pledge initiation and din- ner, Christmas Party, Mother ' s Day Tea and annual White Rose Ball Spring formal dinner- dance.

She would like to go into elementary teaching for her life ' s work. Sarita, one of our most talented sisters, is a graceful ballet dancer, plays the piano, violin and clarinet and also has a lovely soprano voice. She dreams of using her talents for teaching others to have the love and satisfaction she has found in music. Thelma Ann has two dreams. One, her marriage to Mr. Bill Wandling, which took place on January 25, has come true. Her other dream is to work in the Methodist Church as a Director of Christian Edu- cation and a Director of Music. Harriet ' s dream has already been real- ized, for she was married to Mr. Tom Greenwod on February 14. They are now residing in Baltimore, Maryland, where Tom is employed by the S. S. Kresge Company. Harriet has chosen social work for her vocation. " Duke " and Carrie dream of the day when they will be Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Garton. We ' ve an idea it won ' t be long. Carrie also plans to teach music to high school students. K A P A Ed Morris President John Hughes Secretary Richard Hill Treasurer Bill Holfinger Sergeant-at-Arms 74 This year marks the eleventh anniversary of the founding of the Morris Harvey chapter of Kappa Sigma Kappa Fraternity. Although a comparatively young group, the Kappa Sigs have well-established themselves at the col- lege by the members ' many and varied activi- ties. The president of the current Greek Gov- ernment Association is a member of this fra- ternity. Annually, the group enters teams in all major intramural sports. During the first semester, the Kappa Sigs had the largest pledge class of all the fraternities on campus. Kappa Sigma Kappa Fraternity, Inc., is a national-international organization, founded in 1867 at Virginia Military Institute. It is com- posed of over 50 chapters (five in West Vir- ginia), located throughout the United States and in Canada, Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand.

The Beta Chapter was organized at Morris Harvey College on November 14, 1929. The objects of the organization are to unite young men from various localities, to install a feeling of campus fellowship, to promote the in- terests of the College, and to open doors of social activity that might otherwise be closed. Outstanding events on the Phi Sigma Phi Cal- endar include: The Turkey Hop, Bunny Hop, and formals for its members and their guests during the Christmas and Spring seasons. The Phi Sigs selected Miss Nancy Blair as the fraternity sweetheart for this year. The fraternity gives a George King award each year to the outstanding Basketball player on the Morris Harvey squad.

Since then, this, the youngest of the Greek letter organi- zations has grown into one of the largest and most active fraternities on campus. Many traditional functions are presented an- nually by t he fraternity. The five major ones are: the " Welcome Dance " in September, the " Plymouth Rock Dance " in November, the " Christmas Formal " in December, " Sweetheart Weekend " in April, and the " Spring Swing " in May. Besides these many minor functions are also scheduled during the year such as stag parties, private parties, luncheons, and general " bull sessions. " The climax of the social calendar is the three- day function " Sweetheart Weekend " which is ap- propriately named because it is at this time that the new fraternity sweetheart begins her reign. The events of this function differ slightly from year to year, but usually consist basically of dances, parties, and other events. Many members of the Sigma Delta Phi frater- nity hold important positions in other campus or- ganizations such as the Blackfriars and the Student Council. The Sigma Delta Phi fraternity has planned and is planning many additional functions for the on- coming year. The true test of an organization is in the activities it presents.

James Perks President Tom Pauley Vice President John Atkinson Secretary Tom Bailey Sergeant-at-Arms 82 Zeta Kappa is founded on principles of scholarship, fellowship, and high moral and social standards. 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 was later changed to Beta Kappa. At a meeting in Huntington No- vember 30, 1928, of active and alumni mem- bers, the name again was changed to Zeta Kappa. A grand Chapter was formed and the organization was declared national. " Create, not imitate " is the motto of the fraternity and their pledge program carries out a high sense of purpose undergirded by ideals of ethics and comradeship.

Seated: Ed Morris, Editor. Standing, left to right: Jim Chirpitch, Bill Holfinger, John Hughes, Richard Hill and John Atkinson. The Comet is a twice-monthly publication and is the official student newspaper of Morris Harvey College. It serves both as a means of communication and as a training ground for journalism students. Several former Comet staffers have gone into full-time newspaper work or other allied professions. Another Comet service is the letters to the editor col- umn which allows any student to comment on pertinent college affairs. The editor and business manager positions are filled annually through selections made by the Comet board. Each position carries with it a full-tuition scholarship. Any student with training in either the editorial or business field is eligible to apply. Outstanding staff mem- bers are given recognition for their work at the yearly awards assembly. THE HARVEYAN " We did it! " But as we look back, we wonder how we did it. As most of the student body knows, there was a question as to whether or not we would have a 1958 Harveyan. The final decision came— needless to say it was a pro— a few weeks before the final deadline for all copy to be in the printer ' s hands. Working madly, success was just about upon us when tragedy struck! Forty pages of pictures had been ruined by the Post Office, but this didn ' t stop us. After working ourselves to distraction and short of a nervous breakdown, our final words are: " We did it! " With the deadline drawing closer, the busy Harveyan staff pauses to have its picture taken. Seated: Nancy Snodgrass. Standing, left to right: Dr. John Kinnaman, Faculty advisor, Jim Malloy, John Osborne, Bob Rickard, Nancy Trotter, Editor, and Jim Gibson. 84 Kneeling: Archie Snedegar, Warren McGraw, Jim Harpold. Seated: Nancy Blair, Betty Tate, Jane Armi- tage, Allen Jones, Bob Sigmon, James Kelley, Don Metheny and Dr. O. J. Wilson, Faculty advisor. DEBATE CLUB The Morris Harvey Debate Club was or- ganized on the campus for the purpose of creating an interest in forensics and intercol- legiate competition. This year in conjunction with the Morris Harvey Forensic Meet and the cooperation of other student organizations, the First Annual Rose Festival was held. The Morris Harvey debaters have done well this year in competition. Of the honors they have received, the first was " Best Speaker " in the Wake Forest Novice Tourna- ment, won by Warren McGraw. Second, they placed fourth in Sweepstakes Points at the Morris Harvey Forensic Meet. Next, they placed third in the Ohio Wesleyan Tourna- ment. Allen Jones was first place winner in Radio Announcing at the Marietta College Tournament. Last, they placed third in the Harvard University Invitational Tournament. During the Spring semester, the club is look- ing forward to many more meets. 85 BLACKFRIARS With the productions " Fog on the Valley ' " Night Must Fall ' " Happy Journey " and " Family Portrait ' Blackfriars enjoyed its big- gest year yet and wrote another chapter in the growth of dramatics on the Morris Harvey campus. This organization, like most other college theater groups, is dedicated to the cultural advancement of the college through the me- dium of legitimate dramatic art. Blackfriars promote and encourage any phase of drama whenever possible. With diligent work the members have fol- lowed each endeavor to a favorable end. Every production is accompanied by a new and more difficult problem. And on each oc- casion the initiative and ingenuity of the mem- bers, working as one, has led to a practical solution. BLACKFRIAR OFFICERS— Left to right: Ruth Legg, co-pro- duction manager; Carol Hover, secretary-treasurer; Jack Newton, president; Marjorie Smoot, vice president; and Glenna Postlethwait, co-production manaaer.

The first step of any play is to select actors to fill the roles. This is done by holding tryouts. Next the stage crew for the production goes to work. With hammer, saw and nails at hand, the set begins to take shape. A PLAY IS PRODUCED Wit h the set built, the next step is to paint and assemble it on the stage, place the lights and prop- erties in their designated places. The day of the performance ar- rives and the actors interpret their roles. The time that has elapsed from tryouts to performance has been approximately six to eight weeks. 87 Row one: Sylvia Simms, Gary Ritchie, Betty Rupert.

WESLEY FELLOWSHIP WESLEY OFFICERS— Sylvia Simms, vice president; Jon Sul- livan, president, and Jane Martin, secretary-treasurer. The Wesley Fellowship exists as a part of the student program of the Methodist Church. The organization was established at Morris Harvey in the fall of 1949 with the fol- lowing objectives: to lead students to become true believers, worshippers and followers of Jesus Christ and to help them find a vital, personal relationship with God; to develop a supporting group in which individuals will mutually strengthen one another in Christian ideals and conserving highest human values. This religious organization is associated with the state Methodist Student Movement Association. Our local movement on campus has twenty active members this year. The meetings include a snack supper, devotionals and fellowship. The sponsors are Miss Vir- ginia Williams and Rev. C. T. Miller. 88 ■■i CHI RHO FELLOWSHIP The Chi Rho Fellowship is an organization open to all students who are interested in full- time Christian service regardless of denomina- tion. It is designed to bring together, for fellowship and service, the students who have dedicated their lives to the furtherance of God ' s Kingdom. Up until September, 1955, the organization was known as The Ministerial Association, but at that time it was felt that all of those who were interested in full-time Christian service should be together in one body and that the title, The Ministerial Association, would not be appropriate since the group would include not only Ministerial Students, but also those in- terested in becoming Directors of Religious Education, Med.ical Missionaries, etc. So it was that the name was changed. Since the organization was to be dedicated to Christ and His work, it was felt that this should be indicated in the new name, and so OFFICERS— Sara Wilson, secretary; Frank Brizendine, presi- dent; Keith Clarke, vice president, and Hugh Wilson, treasurer. the present name was chosen.

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. Activities of the Morris Harvey Newman Club this year included corporate communions, lectures and discussions, parties and dances.

The edi- tor and her staff commenced work in No- vember of 1957 and on February 19, 1958 the last copy was sent to the S. B. Newman Printing Company in Knoxville, Tennessee. There are 277 individual pictures included and at present almost 225 additional activity pictures. These pictures and the necessary copy make up the yearbook. At this moment it is estimated that the Harveyan will cost at least $3200.00 to pro- duce and deliver into the subscribers ' hands. In these brief paragraphs are told four months of hard work by the editor and the staff. They trust you will enjoy your Harveyan. asififi laapiiliia WfiAdmA w0f$t mgsisSm ill immmMk m,mmm i BHH mmm mm ' m ti P8K .••• V . ' .
