QSbhmmhbshbm " 1 THE WARWICK PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS OK MORRISON III ill HCHOOL MOKEISON, VIRtilNIA Volume Four Nineteen Hundred and Twenty-seven Foreword When in the Coming years you turn to the pages of this, the 1927 Warwick, it is the sincere hope of the Staff who present it, that you may find here in these pages a remembrance of the happy days spent within Morrison High School, and that you may in memory live over again those scenes and associations which made your High School days the greatest of your life. 2 ■ Book I Dedication Book II Faculty Book III Classes Book IV Organizations Book V Athletics Book VI Features Book VII Advertisements • ■ J •1 TDcdicalioii In remembrance of their hearty co-operation and unceasing toil in behalf of our Alma Mater the Warwick Staff hereby dedicates this the fourth volume of the B. C. Charles, Superintendent B, L. Poindexbet, Chairman J. H. Yoder R. T. Curtis 5 vest I S members of the Senior Class you have reached a point from which you may look back upon the period of your student life for the past four years and view impartially every incident therein. You may see wherein you have perhaps failed to satisfy your own high standards of schol- arship or wherein you have surpassed your most lofty ideals. Pour years ago when you entered High School you were told, among other things, that you must learn how to think — that you must reason things out. Your presence in the Senior Class of 1926-27 is evidence that you have to a certain extent acquired that ability. Now, as you pause for a moment’s reflection before entering a new field of life’s activities, I ask you to con- sider with me another phase of thinking, this time not the external mechan- ical thought of the mind, but the interio r thoughts of the heart, for “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” It has been said that the character of a man is measured by the quality of his thought. By your thoughts you consciously or subconsciously build for yourselves the very temple of your being and regulate every action of its most intricate part. By your thoughts you surround yourself with an atmosphere of your own creation which attracts to you things of like nature and repels those things of unlike nature. How necessary then that for your success you should first form the habit of right thinking. You are just at an age when thoughts are most plastic and pliable, easy to mold and control. You have a large proportion of your life’s thoughts yet to think and your destiny to shape through the characters you are to build; and to you I can bring no better message than the words of the Apostle Paul undimmed by the ages: “Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, what- soever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Fnculhjf J.

Smith Anges Hunter Susie Smith Estelle Ironmonger Virginia Tabb Elsie King Benjamin Taylor Costello Massey Christeen Wainwright Ethel Mills Ora White Jane Wilbern lb ALICE DOUGLAS BURCHER “Doug” “Wholly fair and wise is she Heavens such grace did lend her.” The class of ’27 would be lost if it were not for you, “Doug”. Of all our class the only one who possesses the talent, the lovely gracious muse, Poetry. Not only proficient in that art, but a good student in the bar- gain. Watch Douglas. john McDonough burke “Yankee” “There came a ‘Yankee’ to our town Whom we all accepted with great renown; He is quite athletic as you see And his work has helped us to many a victory.” John is very popular with the veaker sex, especially the “Dinkey” ones. He came to us from Maine two years ago and has taken an active part in all school activities. Here’s to John, may he be successful in life as he has at Morrison High. HENRY SMITH COPELAND “Pecker” “Still water run deep.” Henry is one of the smallest members of the class in statue, but that is all, for he stands high in all of his studies. A real sport, he will try anything. A true friend is found in the makeup of “Pecker”. We wish you the best of luck, Henry. 17 F.DITH LENORE FARNHAM “Dilly” “Women were made to give our eyes delight.” What would we do without “Dilly”? Her smiling face and attractive ways during her four years with us have won her many friends. In everything she is always willing to help. She has proven her ability on the “Warwick” Staff this year and we are sure that Morrison will miss her. May you always have the success in everything, “Dilly”, that you have had at Morrison. COLEMAN ASHBY GREENE “Stiff” “Eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow you may die.” Here’s to Coleman the happy- go-lucky boy of the Senior class. “Stiff” you have helped us along the way a good many times by your many comical sayings and ways in the last two years. We have one spe- cial reason to think you would like to attend M. H. S. again next year if a certain person does. We know York Co. is proud of you and so are we. Good luck to you “Stiff” may you have great success in the future. HAZEL VASHTI HAUGHTON “Hadel” “She makes a brilliant stu- dent In everything alive She always works for ninety Her motto is to strive.” Hazel has been with us since we were Freshmen and what a pleasure her presence has been to us. “Hadel” is the youngest member of our class, but that does not keep her from being studious. She is one who al- ways strives for ninety and is not satisfied with a lower grade. Keep on striving for a high goal, Hazel, and you will surely succeed in life. EARL THORNTON HOLLIS “Nig” “Good sense and good na- ture ever join.” Thornton has only been with us two years, but he has made himself popular in this little while. We hate to part with him so soon. Thornton is a good sport. In athletics he ranks first. M. H. S. hates to lose this great athlete, but we feel sure that he will make the football team a successful one in college. We know that he v ill succeed in anything he un- dertakes in life. AGNES MARTIN HUNTER “Vamp” “Follow your honest convic- tions and be strong.” Here’s to Agnes, our jolly pal. She is always happy and ready to lend a helping hand. When there is anything going on among her pals you will always see her around with her wonderful smiles. She has her own opinions and is not afraid to stand up for them. Agnes is very popular and we all hate to part with her. We feel sure that success will be hers all thru life. ALICE ESTELLE IRON- MONGER “Stelle” “There is nothing like fun, is there?” Estelle came to us two years ago from York County. We all grew fond of her in a short while. She has been a faithful pupil at M. H. S. and a good worker. We’re expecting g eat things of you in the future, Estelle. Here’s wishing you the best of luck. HI 19 BEATRICE ARNETA MOORE “Spitfire " “The mildest manner and the gentlest heart.” Beatrice is a quiet but essential member of our class. She can do just as much mischief as the rest of us, but she does not make half as much noise. We all are sorry to lose her, but we know she will make a suc- cess in life. Good luck, Beatrice! ELLINGTON GIBBS MOORE “Jersey Red” “Talents differ, all is well and wisely put.” Here’s to another of our York County friends, woh came to us two years ago. Some of the boys call him “Jersey Red ” but nevertheless he has the talent. Ellington is an excel- lent scholar as well as a good sport. Go to it, “Reds,” your classmates of Morrison are ex- pecting great success from you. MARY SINCLAIR MOORE “Pinky” “A bright light in a naughty world.” We all love her, and how can we help it? Mary is a v£ry popular member of our class, and if you are in trouble she is sure to do her level best to help you. Wherever you see her she always has the same sweet smile. With her kind heart ' and gentle ways she has made many friends during her stay at Morrison, and we know she will have many more. Here’s luck to you, Ole Pal, may the best of everything always come your way. JS ' The Warwick 21 mmmmm WILLIAM ALEXANDER POWELL “Phoebe” “A man’s a man for a’ that.” True to his type, William is just full of mischief, and oh! how he loves to tease. He is the best of sports and jist as jolly as can be. He hase’ - b en with us so very long, but still we all hate to lose him. We’re all betting that you’ll make a big success in life, and we know we won’t be disappointed. VIOLET MAE REDMAN “She is pretty to walk with, And witty to talk with, And pleasant, too, to think on.” Did you hear someone laughing in the back of the room? If v u investigated you’d be sure to find Violet. She is one of the most popular and best sprr ' rs in our class, and you just ought to see her play bas- ketball! If you wanted Violet all vou’d have to do is bark or say something about a “Dog” and she’d come running. We are all betting on you, Violet. We know you’ll make a high mark in life. WILLIAM EDWARD SEWELL “Bill” “Ye gods, how he doth talk.” Though you are from York County, “Bill,” we know your mind often wanders toward Blackstone. At least we have good reasons for thinking so. E ill is our “Alibi Ike.” but they are m ' ghty good alibis, Bill. ELIZABETH MARIE SLAIGHT “Ree” “How sweet to our ears the melodious song That falls from her lips the whole day long; No matter how dreary or cloudy the day, She brightens our pathway with songs that are gay-” . , Hail to Marie! a merry girl from York County, who loves to laugh and sing. We often wonder if Marie has ever spent a sad or serious moment in her life. Her two years at M. H. S. have been well spent, for she has made good grades and won a host of friends. Good luck to you, “Ree.” GEORGE LEVIN SMITH “Petro” Who wants to have some fun and hear some witty remarks? If you do, just start a conver- sation with George L. He has been a member of our class all four years and we hate to part with him and his wit. He is especially fond of the saying, “Laugh and the world laughs with you, weep and you weep alone,” and seems to follow it closely. We all wish that the best of luck will be his. SUSIE AYLETT SMITH “Sugar” “If you knew Susie ' ike I know Susie — oh! Oh??” Here’s to a real sport and a true friend to us all. Susie has been with us since we com- menced our struggle for edu- cation, exactly eleven years ago. She has been an active participant in all class activi- ties. We have chosen her Edi- tor-in-Chief this year, and we feel we could not have placed the office in more capable hands. We wish we had more like you, Susie. Good luck, and may you always be as successful as you have been at Morrison. VIRGINIA ELIZABETH TABB “Blue” “A brilliant mind is a con- stant source of pleasure ” v e ' s to Virginia, our success- ful and jolly pal. No one is more successful in her studies is Virginia. She is one of the girls in our class who does not have much to say unless someone happens to cross her path. Then she tells us what she thinks. Virginia, may you always be as successful in ev- erything you undertake in life as you have been at M. H. S. WILLIAM BENJAMIN TAYLOR “Ben” His motto: “Leisure.” They say Ben is lazy, but we know he is a good sport and always ready for a good time. “Ben” surely does shark Eng- lish He came to us from York County last year. “Ben,” may your winning personality and v ays bring you success in the work you un dertake in life. CHRISTEE ' T WAIN WRIGHT “Tri»tine” “A smile will go a long, long way.” When there is anything to V done Christeen is a ready ready and willing to help. Her kind ways and sweet disposition will spur her onward through life. Her ouiet but winsome ways have won the hearts cf all who know 1 er. May good luck be y„urs always, “Tris ine.” Your il s-ma 4 es are expoc ' ing groat ■ uccess of you. 24 i m ORA FRANCES WHITE “Jimmie” “Although dark clouds may obscure the sky, There is always sunshine if Ora is nigh.” Ora has been with us only two years, but her classmates at Morrison can truthfully say that she has won a host of friends during this time. Often the appearance of “Jimmie’s” laughing face or a cheery ex- clamation from her has helped to brighten our tasks of school life. Good luck to you, Ora. Your friends at Morrison are expecting to hear of great suc- cess from you. SARAH JANE WILBERN “Janie” “True as the needle to the pole Or as the dial to the sun.” Jane is one of the girls of our jlass who is never heard from much unless something does not suit her, and then she tells us all about it. One would have to admire “Janie’s” qurn disposition no matter how hard they tried to dislike them, for she just has something ab u her that attracts friendship. Keep these good qualities up, Jane, and your friends at Mor- rison will assure you great success. NORRIS FILMORE NETTLES “Beans” “Hang sorrow! Care will kill a cat. Therefore let us be merry.” Here’s to Norris, the jolly Senior of ’27. There is some- thing about “Beans,” as his classmates call him, which everyone likes. He has that humorous way and no one is in his presence very long before he is laughing. Keep your jolly ays up, Norris; your class- mates are betting on your luck in -fnf nro 25 Class Prophecy Returning home one afternoon very tired, from a hard day’s work at the Business College in Newport News, I went out on the porch and lay down in the hammock to watch the sunset. The gentle swaying of the ham- mock and the soft warmth of the sun soon lulled me to sleep to dream of things and people of the past. Suddenly there appeared in my dream the White House at Washington, a place I had long desired to visit. I entered and who should I see but John Burke? We talked about the good old times we had at Morrison. John was President of the United States. Bidding me come with him, John led me into another room. Who should I see but Costello Massey and Ellington Moore, now Senators. I complimented them on their success and bade them farewell. I had not gone far when I saw two women sitting on the porch of a very beautiful home. They looked so familiar that I went up and spoke. Sure enough, they were Jane Wilbern and Beatrice Moore, two of my classmates of Morrison High School. Jane was married and living happily in her beautiful home, while Beatrice was an old maid staying with Jane. After talking about the good old times we had had together, I departed. On looking at my watch, I discovered that it was twelve o’clock. I was very hungry, so I went into a hotel. Before going in, I noticed a very familiar name written across the top: “Morrison Hotel.” On entering what to my wondering eyes should appear but the words “Thornton Hollis and Henry Copeland, Managers,” written across the office door. Of course I knew it to be none other than my two senior pals. After dining I went into the office to talk over school days. Who should I see inside but Christeen Wainwright typewriting as fast as she could. I rushed over and spoke to her. Thornton Hollis came over where we were talking and under- standing our desire to go to a theater together, he at once gave Christeen the rest of the afternoon off. Thanking him, Christeen and I proceeded down the street to a large building, which Christeen told me was the best theater in Washington. We bought our tickets and entered. The theater was crowded, but we finally managed to get a seat up front. As the curtain rolled up six girls came tripping lightly on the stage. How familiar those voices sounded to me as their beautiful songs Riled the building. Sud- denly I recognized them as old classmates of mine. Susie Smith and Marie Slaight were leading the singing. Their sweet notes filled the room as they sang “Jealous of Me.” It was the same song taht they had sung for us so many times at our school. Then I recognized Violet Redman and Lenore Farnham. Violet and Lenore danced the Charleston, while Mary Moore and Margaret Brown sang for them. What a glorious act that was! The six actresses left the stage. Then three men appeared, with a violin, banjo, and a saxaphone. Who could those familiar faces belong to? Why, it was none other than George Smith, Benjamin Taylor, and Norris Nettles. They played very stirring music. There were many other interest- ing features on the program, but nothing pleased me more than the sight of my classmates. After the show, Christeen insisted that I spend the night with her. I accepted the invitation, and we boarded a street car. As we passed a bookstore we saw the sign, “Buy now! A special price on Burcher, the greatest poetess ever known.” My heart leaped with joy for the success of another schoolmate. How I longed to see Douglas once more! A little newsboy entered and I bought a Newprt News Times-Herald. As I began t read the headlines on the first page, my eyes suddenly caught a very familiar name. I read an article about “Estelle Ironmonger, the new President of the College of William and Mary,” and remembered that Estelle was my York County classmate. Soon the car stopped in front of Christeen’s home. We got off and who should meet us at the door but Elsie King and Ora White? How happy I was to see them! We all talked over our school days, and later I found out that both of them were old maid school teachers, teaching in Washington. My first day in Washington had indeed been happily spent. The next day was Sunday. Elsie, Ora, Christeen, and I went to church. A special service was scheduled for the day. The greatest preacher and pianist ever known were to take part. I asked Christeen what their names were, because their faces looked very familiar. Christeen told me that the preacher was William Sewell, and the pianist was William Powell. After the service I went up to them and talked a long time. How pleasant it was to see so many of my old friends. . 27 $ Ai I started for the door, someone caught me by the arm. I looked and there stood Ethel Mills. She told me that she was leaving the next day for Japan as a missionary. After a pleasant little chat with her we regretfully parted. On going home from church, I heard a very familiar voice calling me in the distance. I looked and saw Virginia Tabb, standing in the doorway of a very beautiful home. Ora, Elsie, Christeen, and I went to the house and spent the evening. I found out that Virginia was the wife of a Senator. We spent the entire evening talking about oud golden days, as seniors. I asked Virginia what had become of Agnes Hunter. She said that Agnes was married to Mr. Joe Richardson and was living in New York. He was the brother of Miss Nelle F. Richardson, our senior homeroom teacher a. Morrison High School. Then I asked her where Coleman Green was? Virginia told me that he had become a lawyer and had gone to Philadelphia. Just as Virginia said Philadelphia, Bobbie, my little pet dog, licked my face and I woke up. He had come to tell me that supper was ready. HAZEL V. HAUGHTON, ’27. £2SS59H«JWK ■ a nw »-A fr r% Ju aj£ g Creed We, the class of nineteen twenty-seven, have traveled together, through sunshine and shadow, for the past four years the path of High School achievements. Sometimes we tired of the careless effort, but, as a whole, we had a pleasant journey. As the time draws close, when we are about to enter the Highway of Life, we feel that we should turn our thoughts toward those things in which we believe, the things which have been our beacon light. First, and above all, we believe in our Creator, God, who shapes our destinies. It was through Him that all things were made possible for us. We believe in our Country, the United States, as the land of the free and the home of the brave. We believe in Virginia, our beloved State. May we over remain true to the lofty principles of the Old Dominion. We believe in our beloved High School, of which each one of us holds the fondest memories. We firmly believe in the Athletics of our school, which have placed us on the top and spurred us on to victory. As a unit, we believe in our student body as the material from which our country may expect the best citizenship. We believe in Mr. Mort, our principal, who has helped us with his ready advice and sympathy. To him we pay our highest respects. We wish to thank each teacher of the faculty for giving to us high ideals of life and surrounding us wit’ their moral influences which have been necessary for character. We hold in our highest esteem, Miss Richardson, our home-room teacher and sympathetic friend. From her we ever received encouragement and wise counsel. We believe in the WARWICK, our annual. May it continue its progress in the future as it has in the past. Finally, we believe in our class. With our motto to guide us, we hope lo attain higher things in the future. VIRGINIA E. TABB, ’27.

" ( | |‘a " EARL THORNTON HOLLIS, O Executive, ’27. 32 Class History We, the class of 1927, after four years of toil have at last achieved our victory. Back in September, 1923, we as a class commenced to exist with a roll call of 32. The new school building was not completely finished, but this did not stop us from getting duly initiated by the upper classmen. One of our members scored the first touchdown in the history of the school against Williamsburg High School. We had our first party down in the Hilton Presbyterian Church. During the month of March we all journeyed to Yorktown to see history repeat itself. In making the picture “America” ’• r saw jus + how Cornwallis surrendered. It was quite a thrill and we all e:. joyed the trip. Nothing more of importance happened this year except the breaking of a few boards over us by the Sophomores on “Rat Day.” We came back the next fall all excited and proud over not being “Rats” any longer. We set to work to do something for our school, for we had become really endowed with that old peppy and fighting spirit of Morrison. After exams were over we went as a body to Newport News to hear the famous evangelist, “Billy” Sunday. Finally we became Juniors and showed the ole Morrison spirit by being the first class to contribute to the annual fund that year. Our class was somewhat enlarged this year with several newcomers from York County. Our Senior year started with a feeling of success, which was realized through the successful season which the football team had. The team lost only two out of nine games played and piled up a score of 225 to their opponents 28. The annual was rather late in getting started this year, but we all set to work with a vim in order to make this up, and it was not long before signs of the best annual in the history of the school developed. Although we are glad to receive our diplomas, and to take our part in the game of life, we hate to leave old Morrison High School. In conclusion, we, as a class, wish to express our thanks and appreciation to our former principal, Mr. Pride; to the faculty, and to Mr. Mort, our present principal, for their efforts to make us more fit to take our place in the world.

Crigler Eilwood Hunter Marian Kelley Moody Snidow ' Thornton Hollis Principal Athletic Director Captain Football Captain Basketball Captain Basketball Captain Baseball AfMetio Board of Control Susie Smith Miss TDorobhy Langslow Secretary Treasurer S3 a hush fell over the field, everyone was tensely watching (Ellis) kick goal, or maybe (Snidow) shoot the winning basket, or (Hunter) breaking the tape, or (Burke) driving in the winning run. Then a roar which made your very hair stand on its end, with enthusiasm, for the “Fighting Haymakers’ ' had earned another vic- tory for their Alma Mater. Thus may she reign in the hearts of every student, with only success connected with her name. 54 55 CP ELLWOOD HUNTER (Right Half) Ellwood was the Captain of the team and a leader such as very few schools can boost of. When called upon to round the end, the “Flying Demon” was right there, and the brilliant field running which Hunter dis- played time and again is very seldom seen on High School gridirons. JOHN BURKE n (Center) The plunging “Yankee” real- ly makes a hole in the line when he is called on. Quite a few of our touchdowns have been accounted for this way. This is John’s second year on the team and he is a real horse. He is -Captain-elect and we ex- pect great things of the team next year under John’s leader- ship. GEORGE MOONEY (Fullback) The Irish battering ram cer- tainly could make life miser- able for his opponents when- ever there were a few yards to be made and when George once had hit the line the needed gain was all Morrisonss’ This was Mooney’s third year in the backfield and not only was he the best broken field runner, but he was also an expert in the passing medium. J 56 MOODY SNIDOW (Left Half) Moody’s spectacular swift- ness and power to hit his op- •ffcpnent’s line helped greatly in making him one of the most valuable players on the team. Proof of this is given in the Fredericksburg game when on the first play Moody broke through the line and raced seventy yards for a touchdown. The old M. H. S. spirit was al- ways with Moody, for he fought doggedly and never knew when he was beaten. BERNARD JAMES (Quarter) “Lefty” was the lightest man on the team, but what he lacked in weight he made up in generalship. In the quarter- back position Lefty demon- strated his ability as one of the cleverest field generals ever at Morrison. The way he ran the team proves that Lefty knew something about football. SIMON CURTIS (Half Back) SC Simon made his debut in the Dendron game and proved to his teammates that he was all metal. Although a little light, his powerful driving force en- abled him to make many a sub- stantial gain through the line. When the team is on the down side leave it to Curtis to put pep in the old eleven. 57 $ V. WILSON ELLIS (End) Besides being a fast ind rangy wingman “Smokey” pos- sessed an educated toe which came as a great help to the team and very seldom in the try for the extra point did he fail to make the cross-bar. His exceptional fine receiving in many cases netted valuable touchdowns for Morrison and as this being only his first year great things are expected of him in the future. a ROBERT THOMASSON (End) “G o o f y” was another “green” man, but what he lacked in knowledge he made up in nerve. A man very sel- dom ran around his flank and lived to tell the tale. Usually after a punt he was the first man to be down under it and few escaped his tackles. THORNTON HOLLIS (Tackle) “Nig” held down left tackle like an All-American. A hard fighter and steady player was “Nig’s” two most important qualities and wherever the ball happened to be Hollis was there. His sharp attacks on the offensive and his stonewall defense won for him great reputation. 5S MARVIN HORTON (Tackle) Pennington’s side partner was another six-footer, namely “High-pockets.” “Pockets” was last year’s captain and he surely could get fight out of the line. No harder fighter, no fairer sport, no better man ever graced a football suit of Morrison than he. In whatever game he played the old fighting spirit was there. I ALTON PENNINGTON (Guard) Penny was a hard and gritty player and being one of the heaviest men on the team, used his weight to every advantage. Very few gains were ever made over the left side of the line, as all he had to do was to lay down that structure of his and it was impossible to get by without the use of a step lad- der. COSTELLO MASSEY (Guard) Although this was Cassey’s first year on the gridiron and was a little uneducated along the line of pigskin playing, he certainly did get in each game and fight hard. As right guard he clearly outfought and out- played any of the men that were pitted against him. 59 CHARLES DAVIS (Center) Buck was seldom serious but he could be relied upon in any emergency. He ' s an old vet- eran- having been on the squad since he was in the seventh grade. Davis has a knack of saving his energy and is going as strong at the end of the game as he was at the begin- ning. QUINCY WRIGHT (Tackle) Quincy was a nifty tackle and, although he was not an outstanding star, he did his work thoroughly. There will be vacancies in both tackles next year and one of these are sure to be had by Quincy if he continues his good work. PAUL LESTER (Guard) (J. Paul has that never-to-die spirit for he has been out three years making the squad and has hardly ever missed a day’s practice. Fight is his middle name and out opponents always have a hot time when Paul gets down to work. 60 61 The Season When the Morrison gridiron warriors assembled early in September for the first time high hopes of a most successful season were held by all the sup- porters of the Gold and Maroon. All but three of last year’s letter men were back. There was also present the largest number of candidates that ever responded to the call of football since Athletics were introduced at Morrison. J. D. Crigler, former William Mary star, took up his task as Coach and for the first two weeks worked the squad at a terrific pace. These workouts soon began to de- velop the old fighting spirit that later carried them through the greatest football season a Morrison team ever experienced. The first game of the season ended with a vic- tory for Morrison. They handed Newport News for the first time in the history of the school the shorter end of a 13-7 score. Hunter, Ellis and Burke were the stars of the game. Hunter made many substantial gains in rounding the ends. Ellis and Burke showed up well on the offensive, break- ing through the Newport News line time and again, and throwing the ball carriers for a severe loss. Next on the victorious list came Botetourt whom the Haymakers captured 34-6. Coach Crigler ' s boys started scoring early in the game. A series of line plunges and several brilliant runs netted them a touchdown in the first five minutes of play. One of the features of the game was the run made by Captain Hunter. After receiving a forward pass he tore down the field for a touchdown just as the whistle ended the game. Another feature was the kicking of Ellis who turned in four points out of five attempts, for the extra point. Perhaps the game that caused more speculation to the alumni and the students of Morrison and covered the players with glory was the Hampton game. The game was hard fought throughout, and although the “Crabbers” scored one touchdown by means of an overhead attack, the Haymakers were the real victors judging by the amount of ground 62 gained by straight football. The Crabbers were not able to pierce the Morrison line for a single first down, while the “Four Horseman” of the Gold and Maroon backfield took great pleasure in smash- ing through Hampton’s line. The stars of the game were few since the team fought as a whole. Mention must be made of the brilliant fight put up by Captain Hunter and the savage and substantial gains through the line, made by Mooney. On the following week the Morrison football team once more trod the path of victory when they sent the fast team from Crewe down to a bitter 18-0 defeat. Although the team played vic- toriously throughout the game it lacked that kill- ing drive which had torn the Hampton line to threads. The three touchdown, two of which were recovered fumbles, were made by Horton, Snidow and Hollis. Horton, last year’s Captain, starred in the line, while Mooney and Snidow worked a beau- tiful combination in the backfield. Morrison, for the first time in her career, stepped into Preparatory circles, and trounced Christ Church, 27-7. The Christ Church pigskin artists had the reputation of being a powerful and scrappy outfit, but they failed to make an impression upon the Haymakers and were sent home somewhat dis- appointed. Following the encounter with the Prep, boys, Coach Grigler led his players against Dendron, in which all the substitutes were given a chance to show their wares. This they did in real football style. Due to a severe injury sustained in a prac- tice game the day before, Captain Hunter was un- able to play. Quarterback James acted as Captain and showed excellent form in handling the team. Curtis, substituting for Hunter held down his place in an “All-American” style. The game ended in a decisive 40-0 victory for Morrison. The Dendron boys were unable to come near enough to Mor- rison’s goal post to push the pigskin over the last chalk line for a counter. Running up the highest score of the season the Morrison football eleven annihilated the Fred- ericksburg troop, 55-0. The first quarter proved a slaughter. Fredericksburg received the ball on the 63 lTh Mrwick f T w 9i7 f ,! " [» » ff rr | ! C ir 2 ; ir }« • »e f IICCI • ' n.-JE kick off, but was held for downs, and on Morrison’s first play, Snidow sprinted 70 yards for Morrison’s fv ' s + touchdown. Up to the end of the first half the Morrison gridders registered four touchdowns. Nothing of importance occured in the third quarter. In the last ten minutes of play the “Fighting Hay- makers” again broke loose and tore up the field, sweeping all before them. The game was featured by exceptional playing on the part of Ellis, who scored two touchdowns and booted seven goals out of seven attempts. Snidow also starred, making two beautiful long runs, each netting touchdowns. When Morrison voyaged to Christchurch and gave the Prep boys a return game, they met their second and last defeat of the season. The numer- ous penalities that were inflicted on the Morrison boys tended to drive them back and caused them to lose ground. It was due to one of these that the Christchurch score, a drop kick from the twenty-yard line, was accounted for. The Morrison football team wound up the season by taking into camp La Salle Avenue, a team com- posed of former Apprentice and Hampton stars. During the entire game the playing of the Morrison eleven showed a marked superiority over their rivals. In the second half the “Gold and Maroon” startled the “Chevaliers” with an aerial attack and scored two touchdowns. In the last quarter Mor- rison started another determined advance down the field, but was checked on the three-yard line wher the referee’s blast closed the season. Thus closed Morrison’s most successful football season. Seven games were won, two were lost. The final count showed 225 points for Morrison, 28 for the opponents. Although those “Fighting Haymakers” will never reunite again, the faithful followers of the Gold and Maroon will never forget them nor at heart be anything else but justly proud of that glorious 1926 team.

For the first three weeks of March regular outdoor work was held. Most of the work was confined to batting and fielding practice. Since the schedule called for a strenuous season, Coach Crigler began to assign the men their various positions. The squad was reduced from twenty-three to eighteen and each man that re- mained was given a fair trial at the position for which he might be most suited. It soon developed that the infield wo uld consist of Hunter at third, Powell at short, and Massey on second, while Pennington clinched his po- sition on first with little opposition. In the outfield position, Green, Captain Hollis, Wright, Lester and Moore were the men that attended to the winding up of all the hits that were to go past the infield. In the pitching staff was to be found Morrison’s greatest weakness. Only one of last year’s regulars reported for practice, this being Beer. It was exceedingly necessary to uproot two or three more hurlers to meet the demands. With Raymond Beer working in big league style, Morrison won the first game of the season from Poquoson High to the score of 8 to 5. The whole team showed up well, both in the field and at the bat. During the fifth inning, with three men on bases, Powell came to bat and poled out a two-bagger. When the smoke cleared Morrison had scored four runs. The boys went on a hitting spree and peeled the “apple” to all corners of the field. This game showed what the “Haymakers” could do and the team is confident of a successful season ahead. 18 J. D.

James Stevenson could scarcely have started life in a poorer or more desolate home than the little two-room cabin, set in the midst of a forest, near the James River, about three and one-half miles above the present site of the now prosperous city of Newport News, Virginia. In the early morning, the father had gone up the river for provisions, leaving his wife at home. As he expected to return in the afternoon of the same day, no great fear was felt at leaving her alone. They were accus- tomed to all sorts of dangers and hardships, and Mrs. Stevenson had early learned to handle firearms expertly. The incoming tide, accompanied by a stiff breeze, had delayed Mr. Stevenson’s getting home before night, which caused him no little anxiety, as they never felt quite safe from the fear of Indians after dark. Thus, when little James Stevenson first opened his eyes on the world, January 31, 1756, there was no one to welcome him but his mother. It was to be hoped that the baby would grow into a strong, brave man, for there was no use for weaklings in the dangerous, rough life that was in store for him. At the age of eight James had learned to fish and hunt, although he was still too small to be trusted with a gun unless his father was with him. There was nothing he loved better than to sit by the big log fire at night and listen to the thrilling tales his father related of the bloody, barbarous massacres of the Redskins. In those days there were the tall forest trees, but no sawmills to make the trees into building material, so the brave, earnest, hardworking men chopped down the trees, hewed the logs, and diligently built low loghouses with big fireplaces. This was very hard work. At night the men made most of their furniture. To be sure, it did not look much like the furniture for sale in our stores today. Little James grew rapidly, and at the age of thirteen, he was sturdy and strong for his years, and giving promise of the tremendous physical and mental energy, inherited from both parents, that was characteristic of him to the day of his death. While yet a boy, James had visited Jamestown, Yorktown, Richmond, and Greenway Court, the home of Lord Fairfax, where for two or three years George Washington worked as an explorer and a surveyor. Lord Fairfax owned all the land for miles and miles around Greenway Court, and his great tract of land was called the Northern Neck. On this large plantation, James had abundant opportunity for all those outdoor activities ro dear to the heart of a boy. In 1774, James entered William and Mary College, and although he had to do many odd jobs to help pay his tuition, he was very studious and early learned the magic of method, so that he accomplished far more work than most boys could manage. His teachers soon discovered that he was no ordinary boy, and they felt sure that a great future was before him. After one year spent at William and Mary College, the war between the United States and England had broken out, and James Stevenson was among the first to enlist. Going to Boston, he joined the army, under Gen- eral Washington, which was made up from different colonies. Many Vir- ginians besides James were there. When he left home, he said, “Listen, mother, you shall hear from me before this war is over.” He never forgot that promise. For his bravery and gallantry he was soon promoted to lieutenant in the army, and shortly afterward he was ordered to report at an important post in Georgia. From then on, he was entrusted with official documents and messages sent to and from General Washington and the armies fighting in Georgia and the Carolinas. When passing back and forth, he would always endeavor, after having delivered his messages, to see his mother, if only for a short time, and it was while paying one of his hurried visits to her that he was overtaken by a company of British soldiers, shot and left for dead, alone by the roadside. Hearing the gunfire so shortly after the departure of her son and fear- ing for his safety, his mother crept noiselessly through the thick underbrush until she came upon her son lying there dead, as she thought. Her heart stood still, but just for the space for a moment. She slipped her trembling hand over his heart and felt for a sign of life. It was there, but oh, so faint! Hastening to the home of her nearest neighbor, she ob- tained help. Half dragging and half carrying him, they finally reached her little home. His shoulder was broken and his right arm was badly shattered. He received small attention from the family physician, as his wounds were supposed to be fatal, but his magnificent constitution saved him. Nearly four months after he was shot and left for dead, he returned to the army, but so emaciated that his fellow soldiers did not recognize him as their robust comrade of only a few months since. At that time, the British under Lord Cornwallis were moving up through the Carolinas toward Virginia, and General Washington decided it vital to have one of his men steal into the enemy’s camp dressed as a British soldier, and get all the information possible about Lord Cornwallis’ future plans. But where could be found a man to fill this delicate position? Only one of the staunchest and truest could be assigned such a mission. Which of his men would be willing to risk his life and spy on the British army? Why, James Stevenson? Why had he not thought of him sooner? It was October 7, 1780, as the day wore on the clouds broke and the sun shone brightly through. The fighting was at King’s Mountain, and too’ Cornwallis by surprise, completely upsetting his plans. When the smoke of battle blew over, there was a soldier clad in the British uniform who had been wearing the National blue just a few hours before the battle. This soldier was none other than James Stevenson. 88 1 He felt very sad and lonely, and often feared for his life, but he real- ized that the opportunity had arrived for him to prove his worth, and he was determined to gain the information Washington desired or die trying to obtain it. Later in the year Cornwallis went to Yorktown and settled down. The cave he used for a refuge when hiding from the Americans is one of the historic relics of Virginia to this day. The British soldiers liked James very much, and in this way he gath- ered his information from soldiers higher in rank; than he; learned of Cornwallis’ new plans to wipe out the American army, and that he expected to surprise the Americans and trap them in a very short time, and then sail back to England a conqueror. With his task completed, James began to consider a means of escape from the British forces. Slipping past several of the sentinels, one dark night, and bribing the one who caught him and telling him that he wished to visit a girl friend of his beyond the lines, he finally succeeded in getting by. On and on he went, panting, breathless, now stopping a moment to rest, not kowing where he went, but hoping and trusting in Him above that he was going toward his own army, James Stevenson finally arrived at the American headquarters. Great was the rejoicing in the army when it became known that James Stevenson had returned and was alive. General Washington immediately began to lay his great military and naval trap in which the proud General Cornwallis and his army were caught. The battle ended, the result was a great victory for the Americans, but it was destined that James Stevenson was not to live to enjoy the freedom for which he so gallantly had risked his life many times. The secret leaked out and the British soldiers had learned of James’ activities behind their fortifications, and the part he had played during the war, and some of them felt very bitter toward him. On a bright morning shortly after the close of the war, one of Corn- walls’ men accidentally met James Stevenson. With a heart full of hate and anger, he drew his revolver from its holster and cowardly fired it sev- eral times in James Stevenson’s face, killing him almost instantly. Loving hands tenderly bore his body back to his old home, and he was buried be- neath the shadow of the spreading oak at the rear of the house. There was sorrow through all the land when it became known that James Stevenson, the great hero, was dead. Today upon the historic Virginia Peninsula, the name of James Stev- enson, not unlike many other worthy soldiers, has long been forgotten, but unknowingly a huge monument has been erected over his forgotten grave — one of the foremost and one of the most modernly equipped schools in Virginia — the Morrison High School, at Morrison, which is striving to give to the world men and women as upright and worthy as our hero, James Stevenson.
