THE WARWICK PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS OF MORRISON HIGH SCHOOL MORRISON, VIRGINIA VOLUME THREE :: NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TWENTY-SIX foreword 5 ? 8 ? 5 ? To AWAKEN old and pleasant memories in the hearts of old graduates in the hope that one day they may find here in these pages a remembrance of the happy days spent within the walls of our Alma Mater; to remind them of the high standards and good fellowship which must be carried through life by her graduates — for this purpose the Staff of ’ 26 has prepared this third volume of our beloved JV ARJVICK. ©Contents © 0 Book 1 Introduction Book II Classes Book III c - Athletics Book IV Clubs Book V Society Book VI Features Book VII Jokes Book VIII c _ Advertisements MR.

Renton C. Charles 6 PRINCIPAL’S P£eSSAGE F those students who, after four years of per- haps uncertain drudgery, are now completing their high-school work, I should like to ask a moment’s pause, before they begin to enter new fields of endeavor, in order that they may give consideration to one all-important ques- tion. And that question is, “What, after all, is the true purpose of education?” Woodrow Wilson has well said that education should have for its purpose the training of men to rise above the ranks; William James perhaps better stated much the same idea when he wrote that the sole purpose of education is to enable us to recognize a good man when we see him, — a statement which, although probably to be regarded with levity at first, is never- theless in its ramifications almost all-inclusive. The acquiring of vast funds of information little matters, they would rightly have us believe, if in the process the constituent qualities of true manhood and womanhood are not developed. Personal growth is education’s sole excuse for being, resulting not in the mere acquisition of second-hand facts and principles but in the indi- vidual reaction thereto and a consequent broadening of one’s mental, physical, and spiritual existence. This idea I leave with you; and since Edwin Markham has beautifully yet simply ex- pressed it in language better than I could ever hope to attain, I leave you with his verse: We are blind until we see That in the human plan Nothing is worth the making If it does not make the man Why build these cities glorious If man unbuilded goes ? In vain we build the world unless The builder also grows. 0 . 0 Ge§CHOOL (2 §ONG Tune -. — “America For Me”.

Class Secretary ’25, ’26. Basketball ’24, ’25, ’26. Captain Basketball ’25, ’26. Secretary Athletic Board of Control ’25, ’26. Literary Society ’24, ’25, ’26. Latin Club ’24, ’25, ’26. Vice-President Latin Club ’25, ’26. Home Economics ’24, ’25, ’26. President Home Economics ’25, ’26. Chairman Membership Committee Girl Reserves ’24, ’25, ’26. Koo-Koo Klub ’24, ’25. Journalism Club ’25, ’26. “’Tis better to have loved and lost Than never to have loved at all.” Alma is very popular, a dandy sport, and a good student. Although Alma does good work, we often find her day dreaming, and she won’t tell us. Alma was captain of our basketball team. She’s a good pal who just makes you like her. Have you ever heard her individual way of expressing mirth. We can’t say good-bye to Alma so we’ll say “Till we meet again.” J. W. PHILLIPS “Mutt” Wilson Literary Society ’24, ’25. Latin Club ’24, ’25, ’26. Asst. Business Manager Warwick ’26. Treasurer Senior Class ’25, ’26. President Journalism Club ’26. Hi-Y Club ’25, ’26. “Of soul sincere. In action faithful, and in honor clean.” If you want] someone to do something for you and want it done right, just go to J. W. He might truly be called a good substantital friend. He knows what school spirit means, for we know he has the real ole Morrison pep. Al- though he is very quiet at times, when he says something it is always worth listening to. The boys call him “The Sheik.” How about that, Mutt? We’re betting on you to come out on top of everything you undertake. ‘2 h tUanwdv 19 ®Fj 2 W.arwidt ' WILLIAM CURTIS EDWARDS “Zip” Football ’24, ’25 Basketball ' 25 Captain Basketball ’26 Baseball ’25, ’26 Literary Society ’24, ’25, ’26 Bible Club ’24, ’25 Monogram Club ’24, ’25, ’26 Journalism Club ’26 “An ounce of wit is worth a pound of sorrow.” Curtis keeps everyone around h i m laughing all the time. He is one of the most witty students in school. Curtis is one who does not let any- thing bother him, yet we feel sure his mind often drifts far away to a certain girl’s college. When you get to the top rung on the ladder, Curtis, look back and make us laugh and we’ll say of your success, “I told you so.” PEAR1.E GRACE GAINES “Jack” Literary Society ’26 Latin Club ’26 Girl Reserves ’26 York Club ' 26 “Like the river swift and clear Flows her song thru many a heart.” Here’s to Pearle, the most romantic senior — Pearle has a musical as well as an intellectual talent. No matter how gloomy one may be they will soon get into a cheei’y mood if they will just talk to Pearle for a little while. She always has a smile or a word of cheer for everyone. During her brief stay at Morrison she has won many friends. We know she will make a high mark in life. 20 DELIA GREEN “Delie” Girl Reserves ’25, ’26. Lat in Club ’24, ’25. President Latin Club ’25, ’26. Literary Society ’25, ’26. Secretary York Club ’26. Home Economics Club ’25, ’26. “A form more fair, a face more sweet, Ne’er hath it been my lot to meet.” Who wouldn’t love Delia with her saucy eyes and winsome smiles. The Senior class of Morrison High is proud to own her as its prettiest girl. And one of the fine things about Delia is that she possesses a sunny disposition which bears out her reputation of be- ing a girl one is glad to know. She has smiled straight into the depths of our hearts, and we feel her memory will stay there always. CHARLOTTE ELIZABETH HAUGHTON “Choc” Literary Society ’24, ’25, ’26. French Club ’24. Home Economics Club ’25, ’26. Girl Reserves ’25, ’26. Glee Club ’25, ’26. Treasurer Journalism Club ’26. “Her voice was ever soft and sweet, An excellent thing in woman.” Charlotte is one of the girls in our class of whom we do not hear much until someone crosses her path. Then she tells us what she thinks. We know she will succeed in all things, for we already know something of her ability. They say she is a man-hater, but take it from us, we do not believe it. 21 c @ (i zZIlarwidL ' 1 9 " ‘26 THELMA ELIZABETH IRONMONGER Home Economics Club ’26 Latin Club ’26. “Thy modesty is a candle to thy merit.” Thelma is a very quiet and dignified girl, always willing to do her part in everything. Thelma is very talented; her music and poetry charms all of us. We are wishing success to you in life, Thelma. May you make others as happy as you have made us. BERNARD ROBERT JAMES “Lefty” Football ’25 Basketball ’24, ’25, ’26 Baseball ’25, ’26 Literary Society ’25, ’26 Monogram Club ’25, ’26 Hi-Y Club ’25, ’26 Vice-President Senior Class ’26 “Impulsive, honest, prompt to act, He makes his greatest thought a fact.” Lefty has only been with us about two years, but he has already gained popu- larity and a host of friends. Lefty is a grand dancer and we mean he can shake a foot. We never knew he could sing until the Senior gave their minstrel, and we wondered why we had never discovered such talent be- fore. Lefty is a real basketball player, and we are sure that he will be as success- ful in college as he has been on the Morrison High School Team. Best luck to our basketball star. 22 WRAY LEE CURTIS Literary Society ’24, ’25, ’26 Monogram Club, ’26 Hi-Y Club, ’26 Football, ’25 Baseball, ’25 Bible Club, ’24, ’25 “Good sense and good nature must ever join.” Wray Lee is one of those who comes to us from York County. He is very much interested in all prases of school work, especially athletics. We know Wray Lee will succeed in everything he undertakes because he is one that sticks to a thing. A good sport, cour- teous, and ever-thoughtful — these are the traits by which we will remember Wray Lee. ( ) WILLIAM JENNINGS DAVIS “Jinks” Secretary Sophomore Class ’24 Latin Club ’24 Wilson Literary Society ’25 Spanish Club ’25, ’26 Modern Language Club ’25 Hi-Y Club ’26 Journalism Club News Editor “Haymaker” ’26 “Every addition to true knowledge is an addition to human powers.” Jennings may be one of the quiet members of our class, but great knowledge is his. This we can prove by just one glance at his report card. Although Jinks is quiet, he is always ready to help anyone, especially in difficult assignments most of us find hard to do. He is a combination of cheerfulness and industry, fun and work — what more can we say ? 23 ‘STftc VHarwidv- BEATRICE ELIZABETH HORTON “Beatie” Manager Girls ' Basketball ’25, ’26. Girls’ Basketball Team ’24, ’25, ’26. President Four- Eye Club ’26. Secretary Koo-Koo Klub ’26. Treasurer Home Economics Club ‘26. Treasurer Student Club ’26. Treasurer Poindexter Literary Society ’26. cheer Leader ’24, ’25, ’26 Class Prophecy. “There’s nothing like fun is there?” Here’s to Beatrice, the best sport of the Senior Class. If Beatrice gets her heart set on anything we all know it will be a success. We all admire her for her splendid school spirit and hope she will be as successful in everything she does as she has been at Morrison. Beatrice is another one of the stars on Morrison Basketball team, and we never fear of losing when she is pre- sent with her mind set on winning. Keep on. Beatie, and you’ll be a cham- pion in life. IDA MAY HOSTETTER Literary Society ’25, ’26 Home Economics Club ’25, ’26 Glee Club ’25, ’26 Bible Class ’26 “To know her is to love her And love but her forever, For nature made her what she is, And never made another.” We are proud to claim Ida as our class- mate. She would be a credit to any class as its best student. She is very quiet, but as sweet and kind as she is modest. We have all learned to love her and wish that the best of all good things will be hers. 24 SARAH MARGARET HOSTETTER Wilson Literary Society ’24 Chaplain Literary Society ’25, ’26 Home Economics Club ’25, ’26 Chaplain Latin Club ’26 Bible Class ’24, ’25 Glee Club ’25, ’26 Class Creed ’26 “A violet by a mossy stone, Half hidden from the eye. Fair as a star when only one, Is shining in the sky.” Sarah is truly as modest and as sweet as a violet. A conversation with her would give strength to the most de- jected. In her studies too, Sarah stands first. In her chosen path, which shall surely lead to success, she will leave behind her only friends the better for knowing her. ELLWOOD SCHEETZ HUNTER “Rago” Football ’25 Baseball ’26 Hi-Y Club Literary Society ’25, ’26 Spanish Club ’25, ’26 Monogram Club ’25, ’26 Journalism Club ’25, ’26 “A man he is, and every inch a man.” A good sport is Ellwood and very pop- ular especially with the fair sex. As an athlete he ranks first, and we pre- dict great things for him along that line. M. H. S. hates to lose this foot- ball man, but expects him to do fine things in the future. We feel sure that Ellwood will indeed be a credit to his Alma Mater at college and on through life. 25 ‘STfic Vlarmcks I 0 26 CHARLEY ELTON PARKER “Elt” Football ’24, ’25, ’26. Monogram Club ’24, ’25, ’26. Baseball ’24. Vice-President Sophomore Class ’24. Literary Society ’24. Journalism Club ’26. ‘‘Handsome is as handsome does.” Handsome is he? Ask the girls. Why, we often see Elton standing in the hall with about six girls talking to him. He might be a regular ladies’ man, but that does not swell his head. Elton is one whom we enjoy having in school and especially in the Senior class. If he does everything as well as he plays football, he’ll get along all right no matter where he is. VICTOR FORD PARKER “Reds” Baseball ’26 Bible Club ’25 Journalism Club ’26 Literary Society ’26 “He was true to his work, his work, and his friends.” A quiet classmate is Victor who never fails to have his lessons prepared. Victor is making a dandy catcher on our baseball team this year, in fact, one might say Victor is a good all- round sport. Victor is a boy who can smile through most anything. You just ought to see his eyes twinkle when something amuses him. Just keep it up, Reds, old boy and you’ll come out all right. 26 JAMES POWERS SEWARD “Peanuts” Editor-in-Chief “Warwick” ’26. Football ’24, ’25, ’26. Baseball ’26. Monogram Club ’25, ’26. Hi-Y Club ’24, ’25, ’26. Vice-President Hi-Y ’25, ’26. Modern Language Club ’24, ’25. Journalism Club ’26. Bible Club ’24, ’25. Literary Society ’24, ’25. “Fortune truly helps them that are of good judgment.” Is he ambitious ? We’ll say he is. Powers is the best business man of our class, although graver matters do not prevent his being popular with the girls. So we’ll just say, here’s to the Edi tor-in-Chief of the Warwick who stars in athletics even while getting his work done. In other words, here’s to Peanuts! S ' ! Ss g) ANDREW JOHN SHANNON “Buck” Spanish Club ’24, ’25, ’26. Literary Society ’24, ’25. Journalism Club ’25, ’26. “The world’s no better if we worry, Life’s no longer if we hurry.” They say he is lazy, but we know he is a good sport and a good friend. An- drew has always been ready to enter into all good times, and has helped us to enjoy them. We are glad Andrew decided to come all the way from Yorktown to Morrison, even if he has only been with us two years. They say Yorktown has a great future. Maybe Andrew will be one of its pro- moters. 27 LYNWOOD EVERETT MEBANE “Len” Art Edito r “Haymaker” ’26. Journalism Club ’26. Wilson Literary Society ’24, ’25. “A heart that in his labor sings.” Lynwood is another one of the many good sports of M. H. S. When a good time is wanting, just look for “Len” and there a good time is found. He is jolly, good-natured, and a pal to every one. It is not known exactly what Lynwood will do, but his talent in the line of engineering makes us predict he will follow this type of work when school days are over. G 0 LOIS ETTA MOORE Latin Club ’25, ’26 Literary Society ’25, ’26. Girl Reserves ’25, ’26. Home Economics Club ’25, ’26. “Better late than never.” Although Lois has only been with us one year, she has surely won a place in all our hearts, and we feel that we shall never forget her. Our only re- gret is that she has not been with us longer. As we all know, Lois has a long way to come to school, so she is somewhat familiar with the word “late.” How about it Lois ? 2S MARY CHATHAM MURPHY “Spuds” Basketball ’24, ’25, ’26. Manager Basketball ’24, ’25. Literary Society ’24, ’25, ’26. Modern Language Club ’24, ’25. Girl Reserves ’24, ’25, ’26. Home Economics Club ’25, ’26. Koo-Koo Klub ’25, ’26. Treasurer Spanish Club ’25, ’26. “As welcome as sunshine in every place, So the beaming approval of a good- natured face.” Spuds is a good sport who has brigh- tened many days of the Senior Class by her laughter. Two years ago Spuds came to us from Eustis, and we’ll say we are glad she chose to attend our school. Her splendid basketball play- ing has helped Morrison bring home many victories, for she has the old fighting spirit that wins. We are will- ing to prophecy that Mary will always be a winner. ( SsS) OPAL EDNA OWENS “O-pal” Literary Society ’24, ’25, ’26. Home Economics Club ’25, ’26. French Club ’24. Girl Reserves ’25, ’26. Glee Club ’25, ’26. Journalism Club ’26. “Those dreamy eyes will haunt me to my death.” Opal is the most attractive girl, and we know she deserved the honor when it was given her. Her dreamy eyes have won her a host of friends and we know her charming ways will carry her through life most successfully. Good luck to you, Opal, in everything you should ever undertake. ELEANOR MARGARET MINE “El” Literary Society ’25. Modem Language Club ’25. Spanish Club ’26. Girl Reserves ’25, ’26. Home Economics ’26. “Thy modesty’s a candle to thy merit.” Eleanor is the sunshine girl of our class. She always looks on the bright side of things, and we all know she is ready to do anything she can to help someone else. We do not hear much of her sometimes, but sunshine is always present even on rainy days because she is there. Luck to you, Eleanor. ELIZABETH WUSKA “Ebbe” Literary Society ’24, ’25, ’28 Home Economics ’24, ’25 Latin Club ’23, ’24, ’25 Girl Reserves ’24 Glee Club ’25 “Laugh and the world laughs with you Weep and you weep alone.” Elizabeth is a “happy-go-lucky” sort of person, who never lets anything worry her. She giggles just because she wants to, wherever she is. Eliza- beth is a thoughtful and cheerful worker and has made school life a pleasant thing. We know that there must be a bright future pathway for her, but may it be lined with thornless roses. 30 ROBERT GARLDON THOMASSON “Goofy” “The woods were made for the hun- ter of dreams, The brooks for the fishers of song. To the hunters who hunt for the gunless game The streams and the woods belong.” Robert is a lover of the out-of-doors, and is always happy when in the woods or on the water in his boat. He can really put the beauty and romance of the woods into words. Altho’ he is very modest about it, we know the greatness of his literary ability and wish you success in this as well as everything else. NELLIE LILLIAN WILSON “Nell” Latin Club ' 24, ’25 Literary Society ’24, ’25, ’26 Girl Reserves ’25, ’26 Home Economics Club ’25, ’26 York Club ’26 The gentlest of Nature’s creatures, The meekest of mankind, Lovely and charming ip every move- ment All these in “Nell” you’ll find. Quiet, meek, gentle, winning, studious — all these and many other good things could be said for Nellie, who has certainly not disappointed or caused the Senior class to regret vot- ing her the “Typical Senior”. In her school life she has made life long friends; we all feel better after know- ing her and many of us have become victims of that sweet, calm atmos- phere which exists wherever Nellie is. We know that she will prove a bright star to the world, and she has our wishes for life’s choicest blessings. 31 ‘(Bha ZHarwidt- DORIS HULA POINDEXTER “Dimples” Associate Editor “Haymaker” ’26. Journalism Club ’26. Home Economics Club ’25, ’26. Literary Society ’24, ’25, ’26. Glee Club ’25. “Perfect in honor, true in creed, A friend in word, in thought and deed.” Here’s to Doris, one of the sweetest g ' irls in the class. We all love her, and how we envy her dimples. Doris is a true friend to her classmates and a good worker for her school. Her ability to write is known to all who work with her, especially when it comes to Journalism or the “Haymak- er” staff. Doris is a girl of whom we can sincerely say Morrison is justly proud. ROBERT BRUCE ROLLINS “Bruce” Football ’23, ’24, ’25, ’26 Hi-Y Club, ’24, ’25, ’26 Monogram Club ’23, ’24, ’25, ’26 Wilson Literary Society ’24 Bible Club ’25 “Man delights me not No, nor woman either.” Begone! Bruce, we know it isn’t true. Why you are no woman hater. All day long we see you making eyes and smiling at the girls, but we’ll not accuse you. A quick thinker, rapid speaker and cheerful worker is Bruce, and he has pi’oved a good student. One of these da s, we are all going to visit him on a great big farm. Until then he carries with him wherever he may go our affection and best wishes. 32 EDWARD BRIDGEWATER LANGSLOW, JR. “Sleepy” Football ’25. Literary Society ’26. Hi-Y Club ’24, ’25, ’26. Bible Club ’24, ’25. Journalism Club ’26. Associate Editor “Haymaker” ’26. “Oh, sleep it is a gentle thing, Beloved from pole to pole!” In some mysterious way, Edward ac- quired the name “Sleepy.” He does not seem very lazy so we have come to the conclusion that his dreamy eyes must be the origin of that name. He is wide-awake in History class and we often wonder where he gets so much information about our government. Keep up your knowledge of political affairs, Edward, and maybe some day you will reach the top-notch of suc- cess. MAGGIE DORIS MAHANES “Bobbie” Basketball ’24, ’25, ’26. Literary Society ’25, ’26. President Spanish Club ’25, ’26. Vive-President Latin Club ’24, ’25. Home Economics Club ’25, ’26. Girl Reserves ’24, ’25, ’26. Glee Club ’24, ’25, ’26. Treasurer Koo-Koo Klub ’25, ’26. Four-Eye Club ’25, ’26. Class History ’26. An athletic girl is she, In basketball a star — A wittier you’d never see, Altho’ you looked afar. Here’s Maggie, the wittiest girl of our class, who has made us happy many a time with her funny little speeches and wise sayings. Along with wit, she carries independence; for Maggie is one of the few who can hold her own with anything, especially with the Senior class. Maggie has starred in many a basketball game, and Morri- son is just wondering who will ever fill her place. We must add that Mag- gie is also a good student. Has she not a combination of fine qualities that it is hard to find often ? ®fi 2 ZUarwidC 33 t 3 h 2 Warwick ' JOHN BARCLAY HAWKINS “I awoke one morning and found myself famous.” Although John only came to us a few months ago, we feel already that he is really one of us, and that we are proud to have him in the good old class of ' 26. If you don’t know how good he is in Chemistry, just look at his report. Perhaps some day John may discover a new element — or an antidote for the laughing gas some girls seem to have taken during class periods. When he has a laboratory of h : s own, we’re just hoping that he will ask us to visit it, and that he will tell us all about the wonderful things he has done in chemical work. LESSIE LOUISE HOBBS ‘‘Little Sister” Wilson Literary Society ’24. Vice-President Home Economics Club ’25. “Honor lies in honest toil.” Here’s to the cutest girl in the Senior Class. And can she dance? Well, you just ought to see her step. Another thing about Lessie is her dependabili- ty. When she has an opinion, she keeps it — of course, unless she finds out she’s wrong. Watch out boys! Lessie shines in all phases of Home Economics and you know what that means. 34 LOUIS HARVEY HALL “Jimmy” President Junior Class ’25 President Senior Class ’26 Spanish Club ’25, ’26 Football ’24, ’25 Manager Football ’25 Manager Baseball ’25 Captain Baseball ’26 President Athletic Association ’26 President Literary Society ’25 Vice-President Literary Society ’26 Advertising Manager “Warwick” ’25 Monogram Club ’25, ’26 “Tho modest on his unembarassed brow Nature hath written “gentleman!” Here’s to our class president! When Jimmy came to us from Smithfield he seemed to like the “Smithfield hams”, but now it seems his thoughts wander towards Harrisonburg. But even though he’s love-sick, he is a class president whose equal cannot be found in every school. Just look at the offi- ces he has held and the football he has played — yea, baseball too — then you’ll know why we say, “Ray, ray, rah, rah, Jimmy!” 3 6 ) GENEVA COOKE “Shinn” President French Club ’25, ’26. Vice-President Girl Reserves ’25, ’26. Literary Society ’24, ’25, ’26. Glee Club ’24, ’25, ’26. Home Economics Club ’25, ’26. Dramatic Club ’25, ’26. “Her curling hair is clustered o’er a brow, Bright with intelligence, and fair and smooth.” No one is more successful in her studies and school interests than is Geneva. What would we do without her in English class to scan the lines and answer the questions as no one else can. She is also practical, which is rare for one so gifted mentally. Lucky will be the man who wins her, and happy his home. 35 ELSIE LIEST SNYDER French Club ’24, ’25. Modern Language Club ’24, ’25. Glee Club ’24, ’25, ’26. Girl Reserves ’25, ’26. Home Economics Club ’25, ’26. Literary Society ’24, ’25, ’26. “When life seems dark and dreary, And clouded all the while, There’ll be a brighter moment If you’ll just watch Elsie’s smile.” Cheerful and happy is Elsie who is indeed a favorite with us. We thought we could easily tease her, and our joy knew no bounds when we voted her the biggest primp in class. However, Elsie soon proved that she didn’t care how much we teased her and now we hear no more of it. There is some- thing attractive about Elsie, some- thing a little different that makes us like her all the more.

DORIS POINDEXTER Class Will ’26. 39 2j@lass Prophecy One night after practicing for our class play, I was returning home very late, I had been thinking much about our class and the fact that we were soon to separate, each going his or her way into the world. A storm came up and I ran into a building which I found open. Strange I had never noticed this building before. It was a deserted theatre, and I seated myself near the back to wait the subsiding of the storm. I had been elected to write the class prophecy, so I sat there thinking and thinking of how to do it. Suddenly, I saw a light approach me. It was held by a dark and myste- rious woman dressed all in white. She carried a long staff in her hand. I confess that I was terribly frightened. She approached, and pointing the staff at the stage said, “If you wish to see the future of your friends, gaze there.” The woman disappeared. I gazed fascinated at the stage which was lighted suddenly with a dim, mysterious light. I saw then the Metropolitan Opera House stage and Pearl Gaines singing the part of Salome. When the curtain fell there were cries of “Bravo, Gaines” and “The greatest Salome since Mary Garden.” Next I saw the deck of a great liner. There were together Robert Thomasson, the captain of the liner, Lessie Hobbs, and Lefty James. Lefty, owner and star of the famous James Ministrels, was saying good-bye to Lessie Hobbs, the noted actress whose great dramatic ability had charmed all Europe. The light flashed and I saw an immense assembly of noted literary people. It was announced that Mrs. M. B. Brown, America’s greatest short- story writer, would lecture. I was surprised when my classmate, Isabel Swan, walked out on the stage. In the assembly were some of the world’s most noted people. Po wers James Seward, the great publisher, talked on modern liter- ature and its authors. The assembly faded, and I saw a basket-ball game being played at a famous university in England to decide the world’s championship of girls bas- ketball. In the winning team, I recognized Mary Murphy as jumping center, Maggie Mahanes as right forward and Alma Phillips as side center and captain of the team. The Coach Curtis Edwards, congratulated them. A great English nobleman and his wife, whom I recognized as Delia Green, considered one of England’s most beautiful women invited them to luncheon in honor of her old classmate, Elton Parker representing a great American concern in Europe. The scene shifted to the dearest place in the world, old Morrison High, a different, huge brick building with a fine athletic field in front. The light changed to the principal’s office. Seated at the principal’s desk was Jennings Davis with Thelma Ironmonger as assistant principal and Elsie Snyder as his private secretary. The county nurse came in. She was, to my surprise, Nellie Wilson. 40 Some of the class rooms were Visible. Doris Poindexter and Eleanor Wine were teaching Home Economics in a wonderfully equipped laboratory. In the room opposite, John Hawkins taught chemistry. Ida Hostetter was head of the English department. As the bus stopped in- front of the school, I saw Andrew Shannon and Victor Parker, heads of a great bus concern, discussing some plans. The scene changed to the prospective city of Morrison. Geneva Cooke, first woman mayor, was giving talks on “How to Make Your Husband Happy.” Russell Mitchell, sitting very near, looked quite happy and bore out the truth of her statement. The city commissioners, Bruce Rollins and Lois Moore, were seated not) far away. In the beautiful fields besides the James River, an artist was seen paint- ing the beauties of nature. It was Sarah Hostetter who was getting illustra- tions for her book, “The Beauty of Nature.” Sarah had become one of the greatest naturalists of her time. Now I saw the office of a dairy farm, large and modern in every way. Kenneth Yoder was seated in the manager’s chair dictating to a very winsome secretary whom I recognized as Charlotte Haughton. His partner, Wray Lee Curtis, worked busily at his desk. The light grew brighter and a threatre was before my eyes again. In the last act of the play I recognized as hero, Jimmie Hall and his leading lady was Opal Owens, noted on Broadway for her dreamy eyes. At the fall of the curtain, their manager, J. W. Phillips, came out and bowed after them. The light flashed and the scene changed to the interior of a newspaper office. At a desk sat Edward Langslow, News Editor of the “Morrison Herald.” His stenographer, busy with important work, looked up. It was the same Elizabeth Wuska who was elected champion giggler of our class. The door of the office opened and Lynwood Mebane entered. The news editor interviewed him about his invention. Lynwood had become quite a famous electrician. The lights became brighter and brighter and then became dim, I saw an army camp where an officer was training his men. As the officer I recognized Ellwood Hunter, one of the coming young men in the army. The stage became very dark, and nothing else appeared there. Some- thing clammy touched my shoulder. It was the woman in white who had been standing there all the time perhaps. I felt that I had indeed encountered the supernatural. She shook me, and I aroused myself as from a dream. When I turned she was no longer there. I went out of the building into the beautiful night. The storm was over and the stars was shining. I felt that the future of my classmates would be as bright indeed as had been revealed to me. BEATRICE E. HORTON Class Prophet ’26. 41 2J@lass History e 0 We, the class of 1926 have, after hard work and perseverance mingled with much play, prepared ourselves to leave the school which has done so much for us. With such preparation we feel that we are now better able to make of oui lives something really worth while in the world. It is with sad- ness that we take leave of dear old Morrison High, feeling that many times in the future, amid the toils and labors which surround us, we shall reflect with pleasure upon the scenes of our past school life which I shall now endeavor to relate. Let us take a backward look over the past few years in which we, the class of 1926, have been studying to prepare ourselves for the future. Since in September 1923, Morrison High School did not exist, we entered different schools in various places, feeling very proud that at last we were really fresh- men. Shouts of “Rats! Rats!” greeted us from all sides, but we did not mind this. We never will forget those days when we were so green that we could not even And our way about the building. We feel sure we made more mistakes this year than in any in our career. One thing we are glad to say is that out of the number that started, only a few have dropped from our roll. Finally came the glorious day when we were no lo nger Rats, but Sopho- mores in the new Morrison High School. We were proud that we could now have a school that we could call our own, although it was not completed when we first entered. As w 4 were a new school, all clubs and organizations had to be formed and carried on without aid from experienced students. The first great question that came up was our Warwick, this being chosen as the name of our annual. Every pupil at once set to work to make the first volume of our school annual successful, which aim was extremely well accomplished. Organization of the Athletic Association reminded every boy and girl that all students must work to have good teams. We are proud to say that the boys brought back victories worthy of any school’s pride, and especially of one which was new. The following September we came back full of pep and vim, for we were then Juniors. At once we set to work to do everything we could for our school, for we had become still more imbued with the spirit of Morrison. The girls and boys raised more money for the Warwick than any other class. Athletics this year showed wonderful improvement under the splendid training of Mr. Crigler. The football season was quite successful, as was also that of basketball. In this latter sport the girls won two games against 42 Newport News High School and also many other victories. We are very proud to say that four of the girls on the team were from our Junior class, and went a long way in helping win the Morrison silver cup. This year we became more united as a class, for we were too lively a crowd of Juniors not to brighten our school life by varied social activities. The better we succeeded in knowing each other, the closer friends we became, glad that we could each day work toward a common goal. Our Senior year opened with the brightest of propects. This year the whole class started out with the determination that every member should finish. Some new ones came to us an dsome few did not return, but as a whole the class proved what real Senior spirit is. Entering into all phases of school life, the class of ' 26 kept itself busy from September to June. Several Senior boys and girls starred in different branches of Athletics, Literary Society HiY, Girl Reserve, club activities, and annual staff work. In fact, these phases of school life were boosted and aided by all the mighty Seniors. However though we were Seniors, we did not spend all our time in work, but had parties and dances so that we could enjoy our last year together as a class in old Morrison. Although we are glad to be ablo to receive our diplomas, we are deeply sorry to leave Morrison. The past years of our high school career have flown too rapidly, and we feel that we would like to do many more things for our school and its teachers, who have so kindly co-operated with us. As we go our way into the world to whatever may be our work, we shall always recall the happy days spent in our Alma Mater. We feel that the memory of our past years will never disappear, but will remain with us for- ever; and that more we shall realize what it means to have been a graduate of Morrison High School. MAGGIE MAHANES Class History ’26. 43 G 0 In the beginning of our high school career, when we first crossed the threshold and entered Morrison High, we grasped and clung to certain prin- ciples which have guided us like a morning star up the steep pathway of hard work to the mountain peak on which we now stand ready to make our flight into the Broader Life. We, the class of 1926 of Morrison High School, frame our creed from these beliefs: Foremost and above all, we believe in one time, eternal, and almighty God, our Creator and Preserver, who has directed our footsteps and led us on the way onward — upward to victory. We believe in this United States of America, and consider it one of our greatest blessings to dwell upon its soil — our native land. Our deepest affection has been welded to Virginia, the “Old Dominion,” our birth state, and the Mother State of the Union. Warwick County, in our estimation, is the best county in the one hundred which compose our State. There is a spot in Warwick, which we believe the dearest — Morrison High School. In all her activities we place our faithful confidence. In Mr. Pride, our principal, we place our boundless faith and sympathy. His ceaseless endeavors to spur us on to our goal have been highly appreciated. Under his guidance, Morrison has reached the high standards for which she has striven. We believe each teacher of the faculty has endeavored to aid us in every way possible. To Miss Ryce, the worthy sponsor of the WARWICK and our home room teacher, we wish to extend our grateful appreciation for her tireless efforts in our behalf. We believe in the WARWICK, our annual, that it will improve constantly as the years roll onward, and will be an instrument through which Morrison will be greatly benefited. In the Morrison athletics we place our confidence, for, indeed they have been a great uplift to our school, and tend to make splendid athletes of all who participate therein. We believe in the Literary Society, the various clubs, and all the activ- ities which promote our interests along educational lines, making us enthusi- astic students, good citizens, and true Christians. 44 We believe in the students of Morrison High School, that through the discipline and training received within the doors of our dear old High, they rally on to victory. Last, but not least, we believe in our own Senior Class, that no better have ever enjoyed the privilege of graduating together. Having remained true to our colors, and having kept a firm grip upon our motto throughout the four years of toil and pleasure, fraternally we part, taking with us these principles as we separate.

Benny’s chief associate and companion was his little sister of whom he was intensely fond, and as he had few boy friends, Lucy usually ac- companied him on most of his rambles through the forest which they both loved dearly. They had penetrated the forest deeper than was their custom, because today each carried a basket made by Mr. Russell from the willows that grew close to the spring near their home. Into these baskets they were gathering berries for Mrs. Russell to preserve in home-made molasses so the children might have dessert for their meals during the coming winter. The Indians were on peaceable and friendly terms with the palefaces at this time, but the children had heard many wei rd and hair-raising stories of Indian massacres told by their father and his neighbors as they sat around the big log fires at night. No wonder therefore that Lucy was frightened speechless when just as she reached for a berry, she spied a dusky face peep- ing through the bush not over five yards away. Lucy uttered not a sound but stood as one petrified. Benny noted Lucy’s pose, and following her gaze, he also saw the form of an Indian through the bush. Benny had often told Lucy how brave he was and how he would protect her, but all of his bravery fled before this appalling apparition. He siezed Lucy’s hand and ran as fast as he could for home. What they mistook for an Indian savage however was only little Fire- fly, the good Chief’s grand-daughter, who was also gathering berries. 60 Firefly had often wished to meet and play with Benny and Lucy, so when they began to run, she ran and overtook them. Seeing they were frigh- tened, Firefly gave Lucy all of her berries, and with the little English she spoke soon made them understand that she meant no harm; whereupon they returned and finished filling their baskets. By this time they had become fast friends, promising to meet again the next day, and Firefly asked if she might bring her brother, Keeto, who was a little older than Benny. The four children met next day as agreed, and had a wonderful time. One day Firefly presented Lucy with a beautiful Indian blanket and Keeto gave Benny a nice little puppy, which they promptly named Chic. The children’s friendship continued to blossom, Chic was almost full grown, and everything was just lovely until late in 1849 when Mr. Russell’s cousin, on his return from California, exhibited so much gold and told such wonderful stories of that country that Mr. Russell was tempted to abandon his home and hie to that land of such fabulous wealth. Mrs. Russell opposed the move, but the “gold bug” had bitten Mr. Russell and nothing would deter him. So early the following spirng, Mr. Russell disposed of all he had except what was necessary to transport them across the Continent, exchanging his money into gold coin so as to be less bulky, he put it into a leather belt and buckled it around his waist. When ready to start, Lucy with her blanket and Benny with Chic, their most prized possessions, Mr. Russell sid to Benny, “That dog cannot go, we have too many to feed already.” Benny’s pleadings had no effect, so he returned Chic to Keeto, the only person with whom he would trust him. The children had said their good-byes and had their cries, and now they were off for no one knew where. The trail was in good condition and Mr. Russell said they were making splendid headway, but on the sixth day he suddenly stopped, and being asked why, replied, “I have lost my belt contain- ing all my money, besides we only have supplies enough for two or three- more days as I expected to buy more at the next town.” He mounted one of his horses and started on the back-trail, scanning the road from side to side, but with little hope in his heart. Cl Late that night he returned to camp, but as all had feared, empty hand- ed. He was a very sad and discouraged man, and said he was awfully sorry he listened to those wildcat stories. Then Mrs. Russell said, “We were happy where we were, and wanted to stay, so promise now that you will start back tomorrow.” Mr. Russell gave her his promise, and they all felt much relieved. That night, while they were asleep, Mr. Russell was awakened by a scratching at the tent, and thinking it was a wolf, he siezed his rifle and fired. At the report of the gun, he heard a short, sharp yelp, and supposing it to be a stray dog, he went to sleep, but was awakened later by something damp and sticky on his arm, and on making a light, what do you suppose he saw? Poor little Chic had followed them all this distance, had picked up Mr. Russell’s belt somewhere along the trail, and though badly wounded, he dragged it into the tent, and it was his blood dripping on Mr. Russell’s arm that awakened him. Needless to say, Chick had every attention after this. It was a joyful family that broke camp and started East next morning, and in due time, they arrived in the vicinity of their home. Here again Mr. Russell stopped his team, with a bewildered expression upon his face, and asked, “What shall we do now ? I have sold the home and we have no place to go.” Mrs. Russell said, “We would love to see the dear, old place once more, lets drive in for a while.” Coming into view, they noticed two objects on the front steps, which on their nearer approach proved to be Firefly and Keeto. They had missed Chic for several days, and were waiting there hoping he might wander back to his old home. Being assured that Chic was not badly wounded and would recover, Keeto asked Mr. Russell to await his return, and darted away through the forest, re- turning in a short while with his grandfather, the Chief with a golden heart, who welcomed the Russells and told them, that Keeto who would soon become their new Medicine Man, was a very intelligent lad, and that on the day 62 Mr. Russell left, Keeto had tossed his eagle’s claw from their magic cup, made of mole’s skin, and three times they had fallen so as to indicate the Russell’s return. So much faith had they in young Keto’s magic and so highly were the Russells esteemed by the Indians, that the Chief called Council Meeting at which the tribe raised sufficient funds to rebuy the Russell home from its re- cent purchaser, and were holding it as a present for the Russels upon their return. He then gave Mr. Russell the keys to the house, telling him they would find everything just as they had left it; the cattle were in the barn, and his men would come later with Mrs. Russell’s chickens and pigs. Mr. Russel was too full of gratitude for speech, but the Chief understood, and while Mr. Russell ' s eyes filled wtih tears, the good Chief, followed by Keeto and Firefly, silently and swiftly stole away, joyful in the knowledge that they would reap their reward in the happy hunting grounds of the Great Hereafter.

" Q q) 67 68 Although Morrison did not have such a very successful baseball season the gloom of ' spring’s sports were swept away when the Morrison Track team captured first place and brought home the Championship cup for the quarter- mile Tidewater Relay held in Norfolk, May 1st. This is really Morrison’s first track team and in its first and only appearance of the season, displayed wonderful speed and form, the fruits of Coach Crigler’s careful training. Those composing the team were: Ellwood Hunter, Thornton Hollis, George Mooney and Bernard James, and though small in number, they out ran and outclassed all their opponents. The quartette took part in three events: the hundred yard dash, the two-twenty yard dash and the quarter mile relay. Hunter took the century in 11 flat, displaying remarkable speed while Hollis pressed in close upon his heels. In the two-twenty, the Morrison lads had things their own way, Hollis breaking the tape in 25 seconds with Hunter a close second. In the quarter mile relay the Morrisonites broke all previous records and hung up a new one for sprinters of future years to chase after. Mooney started off the works for Morrison holding his lead through out, as so did James and Hollis, and when Hunter snapped the tape, making the quarter in 49 seconds the nearest opponents were fifty yards behind. Next year track is going to be run on a larger scale than in the past year and with such material as Mooney and Hollis to build up next year’s team, Morrison has high hopes of producing a Championship track team. 69 Football RECORD Morrison 6 Hampton 19 Morrison 7 Kecoughtan 7 Morrison 6 Apprentice Seconds 6 Morrison 57 Botetourt 0 Morrison 6 Hopewell 0 Morrison 0 Emporia 6 Morrison 7 Apprentice Seconds 0 Morrison 0 Crewe 0 Morrison 2 Suffolk 26 The most noticeable thing about the football squad when lined up in September was the large number of experienced players from last year’s team. From the first day the competition for places on the team was keen — so keen in fact, that a few players of the past year were unable to make the grade. To them and too all the loyal substitutes is due no small praise. They made possible the frequent scrimmages which had much to do with the accuracy and vigor of the team. In the second year as Coach and Athletic Director of Morrison High School, Mr. J. D. Crigler, a former William and Mary man, through his hard work and eagerness, rounded out one of the best football teams, for the size of the school, in the State. The opening game of the season with Hampton featured sensational playing on the part of Nig Hollis and Jimmie Hall. The first half ended with Morrison holding a 6-0 score, this being made when Hollis recovered a Hampton fumble and raced thirty yards for Morrison’s only goal. In the second half the crabbers came through with three touchdowns, copping the game, but not once did the Morrison line flunk, and it succeeded greatly in giving Hampton a bitter fight. Displaying a powerful offensive drive in every quarter, the Morrison gridders found little difficulty in trouncing Botetourt. Mooney pulled off some spectacular stunts, receiving a punt and racing across the last white line in the first three minutes of play. In the latter part of the game the opponents attempted a drop kick from the forty-yard line. It missed by a short margin, going under the bar, but it was the only time the Morrisonites were in dan- ger of being scored on. In a great uphill battle, featured by flashy work on the part of Hunter, who tore around end time and tune again for substantial gains, and who was responsible for the one touchdown made by Morrison aggregation, Hopewell was sent down to a bitter defeat. 70 The Emporia game was a disappointment. After holding the opponents scoreless up to the last quarter, with two minutes to play, the Morrison in- vaders were completely baffled by an aerial attack, especially when Barnes, quarterback, launched the oval in the direction of Dean, their flashy end, who by some form of mystery enabled himself to stand behind our goalpost and complete the pass. In the following game with the Apprentice Reserve, Captain Horton covered himself with; blood and glory, displaying a savagely aggressive offense and a defense like a stone wall. The Morrison team showed the greatest power, the most crushing offense that any Maroon and Gold team has ever had. The next battle was with Crewe whom Morrison held to a scoreless tie on their own field. Hollis showed up well on end runs and many a time placed his team in a position to score. Edwards seemed to be all over the field, and groans of fear t ' ose from the side-lines when he had to retire with injuries. Morrison closed their schedule by battling the Suffolk pigskin artists, and although hopelessly outclassed, our team never stopped fighting. Each and every man on the team deserved great praise as they ' all fought the game of their life as well as they knew how. Probably the most effective man in the line was Captain Horton, while Hunter was skipping off tackle, through the line, and around end like a grasshopper and was just as hard to catch. Many teams of various schools have grown to admire the members of the Morrison team as opponents worthy of any foeman’s steel, for the ranks do not contain a whiner or an alibi manufacturer.

No little credit is due Captain Edwards and his industrious team-mates for their season’s success, and to Mr. Crigler who has guided the destinies of the team for two years. In their first game they met defeat at the hands of the Charles City boys; although discouraging, this was far from humiliating, for the Maroon and Gold lost by a margin of only two points. After disposing of Toano and Fort Eustis, the Big Five again en- countered some opposition from Hopewell, the former being sent home with the short end of a 33 to 15 score. In their next game wit h Fort Monroe, the Morrison team prepared themselves for the Hampton tussle. But again a third defeat was administered unto them, Morrison scoring 7 to Hampton’s 22. In their farewell game of the season, Morrison staged a comeback and trounced the Newport News High School Seniors. James, Hollis and Edwards led the team in individual scoring, James, left forward, topping the list with 69 points. Captain Edwards, right guard, contributed materially to the team’s success with his clever dribbling and consistent guarding. Hollis, right forward, and Mooney, left guard, displayed remarkable speed and power both offensively and defensively, while Horton d : d some brilliant work at center. Among the substitutes, Davis, Burke, Hun- ter, and Snidow showed up well. 73 Beatrice Horton - - Manager Alma Phillips - - . Captain Maggie Mahanes ... Forward Beatrice Horton .....

The girls opened the season by taking into camp Fort Monroe, rendering the same medicine to Charles City and Toano. In the game with Fort Eustis, which was attended by one of the largest crowds of the season, the Morrison Farmers supplied many thrills. The Hampton game was an aggravater to the Morrisonians. The first half ended with the score 15 to 3 in favor of the Farmers, but when the Crabbers hit their stride in the second half, they steadily merged ahead and the final score stood 32 to 21. Their second defeat came from Poquoson, the hardest fought game of the year. The contest ended in a tie, but in the five “minutes over-time play, Poquoson scored two points to Morrison’s one. The Country Janes took the next three games in succession and wound up the season by severely trounc- ing the Newport News Originals. J. D. Crigler ------- Coach P. A.

After two weeks of strenuous training under the supervision of Coach Crigler, Captain Hall and his warriors initiated the season by taking their first game from the Newport News Originals by a score of 8-5. With the first two games to their credit, the nine started out on what has the prospects of being a successful baseball season. Having forsaken the mask of old, Captain Hall commenced his first year of pitching with V. Parker as his receiver. White played! a brilliant game on first, as so did Edwards and Hunter on second and third. Burke and Msasey alternated at short, while Mooney, Hollis and Ellis starred in the outfield. The second string consisted of Powell, James, Lester, Wright, Richardson, Shannon and Seward. 77 Officers Russell Mitchell Shirley Reed Maggie Mahanes Bernard James Beatrice Horton George Mooney Curtis Edwards Thornton Hollis Sarah Hostetter Faculty Adviser Faculty Adviser President Vice-President Secretary Asst.

One Friday in early Spring when the first edition of the Haymaker came out, Morrison students saw a double column mimeographed news sheet which they bought for two cents a copy. Every Friday th ereafter The Haymaker ap- peared, the Journalism Class, its editors, having decided to make it a wo sheet weekly selling for five cents, proceeds going to the Warwick. This modest little paper contains the regular type of school news, j ces, and matters of interest to students in general. Its motto, if iL had me might be detei mined by its heading — a farmer making hay — as the d ad cf “Make hay while the sun shines.” If this idea is really to be carried .u next year Morrison will have a printed paper of some type which can any on the work The ' Haymaker has begun. It is only fair to mention here those who were responsible r 1 • r ganization of this weekly. EDITORIAL STAFF Isable Swan Editor-in-chief Asso.

When the school building has needed additional equipment or the grounds beauti- fying the League has contributed in various ways toward securing the neces- sary improvements. When the library has called for books, the League has responded gen- erously. Moreover, as a supporter of school activities in general, this organi- zation has proved itself a real benefactor. Remembering that “charity begins at home,” the League makes a prac- tice of sending flowers to sick members and aids in support of the school nurse. Programs this year have been interesting and worth while, some very good speakers having addressed the club. For four years the League has been a Banner League, and has been well spoken of by the Cooperative Educational Association. During its life the League has made definite progress; every indication now is that it will continue to go forward in all phases of its activities. SOCIETY 93 Calendar of Events In the next two games with Kecoughtan and the Apprentice Seconds, School opens and then football with“hard training - ” according - to the Journalism class. OCTOBER Juniors start Warwick financial ball rolling - with Mock Supreme Court. The Court tends to right some wrongs around school but even justice cannot mend broken hearts. Senior Class gives party to celebrate Hallow - e’en — all went well until refresh- ments were served. Some of the dignified seniors have not yet fully recovered. Book Week was celebrated by several interesting plays in assembly and various donations to the Library. NOVEMBER On tag day the Juniors classify all students according to financial standing for the benefit of the Warwick. Seniors have play for the Warwick — “Bluebeard’s Wife” which filled all be- holders with both joy and mirth but taught a valuable lesson. We recommend stronger glue for the blue beard next time. Koo-Koo Klub makes school aware of its existence by throwing party for the Seniors. Everything was coo-coo. DECEMBER Juniors give delightful party at w r hich some of the guest almost go “cohooty” trying to get “in cohoot”. The Baseball teams give party at Hunter’s in honor of Charles City game. JANUARY This month was spent at M. H. S. in quiet anxiety preceeding exams. FEBRUARY Without the break of a day old M. H. S. settled down to another semester of work and play. The Warwick starts the semester with a Penny Race to determine the pret- tiest girl. 94 The “Rats” won and their class beauty, Julia Faye Sawyer, was established as Morrison High’s most beautiful ' girl. The basketball teams give a party at Scout headquarters. Everyone had a good though smoking time. Ellwood Hunter gives the Football Squad a banquet at his home. The boys completed a joyful evening with a dance after the banquet. The Koo-Koo Klub gives party at Isabel Swan’s. Juniors give party at Hunter’s to celebrate George Washington’s birthday. Hatchets and cherry trees were carried out in both decorations and refresh- ments. Everyone had a wonderful time. MARCH Spring always means baseball. This year the Old Gold and Maroon started off with a fine spirit not to be broken by defeat. One of the best dramatic productions which has been witnessed at Morrison High School for a long time was the Senior Minstrel. The music was fine and the jokes, as the violent laughter proved, were excellent. APRIL The Morrison Girl Reserves attend the Tidewater Conference in Norfolk. On their return home some of the Morrisonites believed that they were more accustomed to the “waving fields of grain” than “storms on the briny deep.” Students rejoice at unexpected holiday when teachers attend conference in Portsmouth. Warwick goes to press. Nough said. 0 0 95 FEATURES " afaina. 96 Prettiest Girl Most Handsome Boy Best All-round Girl Best All-round Boy Most School Spirit Boy . Most School Spirit Girl .
