THE WARWICK PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS OF MORRISON HIGH SCHOOL 1929 VOLUME SIX MORRISON, VIRGINIA FOREWORD F THIS, the sixth volume of the “Warwick”, suc- ceeds in after life in bring- ing to the minds of its readers happy recollections of student life at Morrison High School, it has fully accomplished its purpose. “To picture school days here is our desire , Those happy days that soon must pass away, And by this volume, in your heart inspire, A qracious sense of what we would convey.” 2 Book I. Dedication Book II. Faculty Book III. Classes Book IV. Athletics Book V. Organizations Book VI. Features Book VI 1. Advertisements Jbftkatian IN APPRECIATION OF HIS HEARTY CO-OPERATION AND UNCEASING TOIL IN BEHALF OF OUR ALMA MATER, THE WARWICK STAFF HEREBY DEDICATES THIS THE SIXTH VOLUME OF Warwick” TO 5 6 Principal’s Message F YOU, who, after four years spent in high school, are now completing your work, I should like to ask, “What has the experi- ence of those four years meant to you?” By building upon your past experiences you have learned to extend your interests into larger fields, you have developed, in a measure, both scholarship and physical strength. You have mastered, to a certain extent, the funda- mentals of a prescribed course of study. Have you learned, as Henry Van Dyke so beautifully yet simply expressed it, “To be glad of life, because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars; to be satisfied with your possessions, but not contented with yourself until you have made the best of them; to despise nothing in the world except falsehood and meanness, and to fear nothing except cowardice; to be governed by well-placed affection rather than by misplaced disgust; to covet nothing that is your neighbor’s except his kindness of heart and gentleness of manner; to think seldom of your enemies, often of your friends, and every day of Christ?” If so, you may be trusted to maintain the highest standards of life and work, for you have learned the art of living wisely and well. 7 Warwick County School Board J.

She is always ready to help and to do her share. Ruth is as good a sport as you will find, and we are glad she is one of our classmates. Students of this sort will be missed when they leave our school, and their places will not be filled soon. JULIA JUANITA BERGH “Judy” “Describe her, who can ?” Meet Julia, an all around good sport, and one of Morrison’s most popular girls. Yes, you have seen her before — remember ? Every one who saw “Stepping’ Around” and “Don’t Park Here” need not be introduced to her. Her skill as an actress has been proved more than once. We will not say good-bye to her be- cause we all hope to meet her again — on Broadway. EFFIE ELIZABETH BURLESON “Libby” “She has brains, she is bright; She always does her best. She always smiles, she always helps. She will be a great success.” We have said about all we could for our brightest Senior. “Libby”, you have always been a great help to our class, and we know that we shall hear from you after you leave our Alma Mater. 17 JOYCE MURIEL BURT “ Joy” “We love to see her enter, but we hate it when she goes. We love to see her laugh, and dance and play. We love to hear her tell the latest that she knows. Yes. we love our pal ‘Joy’ in every single way.” If you are looking for a good sport and a good friend, just turn your gaze upon happy- go-lucky “Joy”. “Joy” is one that you never see without a smile, always cheerful and want- ing to make others so. With out her, the good old s ' chool spirit would be dead. “Joy” attends every game with a cheer for our team and our opponents. We sincerely hope “Joy” will be as successful a friend to all as she was at Morrison High. MILDRED CURTIS BURCHER “Millie” “It matters not how long we live, but how.” Here’s a girl who delights in helping others. Wheneve r we are in trouble, “Millie” is al- ways ready to lend a helping hand. When- ever we need someone to show us how to work out a problem or tell us the lesson for the next day, we go to Mildred. M. H. S. will miss her much next year, and we are wonder- ing who will take her place. HAZEL PEARL CARMINES “Fluff” “Her ways are ways of pleasantness.” Hazel is an attractive girl who always has a kind word for everyone, and this has made her many friends at Morrison. But, if you get her excited — watch out ! She’ll always stand up for her rights. Hazel, your friends at M. H. S. predict a great future for you. 18 EVELYN HARRISON COLEMAN “Eve” “A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance.” Behold the champion of fun and merry mak- ing at M. H. S. Who has ever seen a frown upon her face? Full of fun and humor, she is in a class by herself. Her merry laughter can be heard any day in the Senior home room at twelve o’clock. Her knack of getting along with people will carry her to great heights in her chosen field. “Eve,” we all wish you much luck. MARGARET ANN COPELAND “Mac” “She hath both good nature and good sense — a rare combination.” “Mac” is always near when you need her and anything she has that you want is yours for the mere asking. She does her bit to make every endeavor a success and just loves to cheer our teams to victory. A student that has Margaret’s abilities and is as good a friend as she is, will never have a hard time in life. AUDREY CHRISTEEN CHANDLER “Chippie” “Giggle, giggle, all day long.” Look who is here ! Our champion giggler 1 Audrey has been laughing with us for four years. She has a way of turning the most serious moments into jokes. We don’t know what we would do without her, for, in spite of her carefree disposition, she always finds time to help us when we call on her. Good luck, “Chippie”. It is folk like you that make this world a livable place. 19 JACK DYKE DANIELS “Jack” “Wit is the salt of conversation, not the food.” Jack is another one of our good sports at M. H. S. He has been with us all through our high school career. Jack is a conscientious, serious student and has gained many true friends among his schoolmates. Keep up this splendid work Jack, and someday you will certainly reach the height of success. MARY VIRGINIA DRYDEN “Ginia” “An ideal girl in every way, the kind of friend not found every day.” When the freshman roll was called back in the fall of ’25, Virginia was right here to answer and has been ever since. She is a loyal friend to all of us. She is proud of coming from York County, and York County should be proud of her. We expect great things of you, “Ginia”. CHARLES BURTON DAVIS “Big Buck” “A bold leader in the battle.” Behold, our great football hero ! Buck’s place on the team and also his place in our school life will be hard to fill. He is good natured and endowed with a winning personal- ity which has won him many friends in school. Charles, it has indeed been a pleasure to have known you and we wish you the best of luck in every thing you undertake. ETTA VIOLA FOX “Coon” ‘‘Never too sober, never too gay, A rare good girl in every way.” Conscientious, honest, and fun-loving is Etta. She is always in a good humor. Her happy disposition has won for her many friends at M. H. S. ‘‘Coon” is something of a tomboy. If you have ever seen her performing on Field Day, you can appreciate her athletic ability. We hold no fear as to her future success. ELIZABETH NELSON GAKKOW “Liz” ‘‘A perfect woman nobly planned to warn, to comfort and command.” Hail, to our Editor-in-Chief ! Elizabeth has done more toward making our annual a suc- cess than anyone else. She has been presi- dent of the class of ’29 for three years and has shown a great deal of executive ability. But in spite of all this work, ‘‘Liz” always has time to laugh with us over our little private jokes. Morrison will have to look hard to find another that can compare in any way with her. BEULAH WALLACE GREEN “Boo” “A rose is sweeter in the bud than full bloom.” Hail to the prettiest girl of the Senior Class ! Beulah, with her modest air and the cheer- fullness with which she takes everything that comes, has gained for herself a host of friends. We feel confident that she will take her place in the world as at M. H. S. May success crown your efforts, Beulah. 21 LOUIS ETHELBERT HOGGE “Pig” “Deeds not words.” Louis is another one of our ambitious York County students. He is a carefree fellow, al- ways looking on the bright side of things. His greatest weakness is his inability to control that unruly member, the tongue, for which ha often pays. In addition to his ability, he is a true friend and an all-round sport. MARY ELLEN HAWKINS " Ellen” “I think it so, because I think it so.” Ellen is quiet and dignified. She is never boisterous unless she is very interested, then you hear her talk, talk, and talk. Ellen makes good grades on her subjects. She also has achieved many friends during her four years here at M. H. S. Your future success, we hope, Ellen, will be as you want it. CHARLES LAMBERT HARPER " Runt” “They always talk who never think.” Take a look at “our” ladies’ man. Lambert is the youngest member of our class but this does not keep him from being popular with the girls. Every time we see Lambert, he is sitting with a different one. We often see him Sunday afternoons with a certain Sopho- more. Good luck to him and, may he never lose his popularity. These are the wishes of the Senior Class. 22 CHARLOTTE ELIZABETH ANN LESTER “Abie’ “Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. It’s a good thing to be brilliant and a good thing to be strong, but it is a better thing to be beloved by many friends. This can be said of Charlotte. A fluffy golden head, a pleasant smiling face, a cheery laugh, and a happy disposition are but a part of that which makes for the gayest and most lovable of companions. Charlotte is the kind that is hardest to find — genuine. MARY MAGDALENE LONGACHER “Maggie” “Let us be silent, for so are the Gods.” Mary, is a very quiet girl, and though she does not talk much, she is a very deep thinker. Whenever Mary starts talking we all listen, for we know that what she says is worth listening to. Wherever you see her, she is the same quiet, studious, loyal girl. May life be good to you, “Maggie”. ANNIE COPPEDGE MARSHALL “Anne” “Talk and the world talks with you, Be silent and you are silent alone.” Well does this suit Anne, one of our out- standing Seniors, who is a pal to all. There is but one thing that is peculiar about her — you never see her that she isn’t thinking of getting a haircut. Anne, here is our sincere wish for your success always. 23 MARY TRESLYN MESSICK “Tres” “Never morning wore, To evening, but some heart did break.” Treslyn is a girl with a high purpose. She is good in her school work and takes a great pride in getting a higher grade than the other fellow. She has ' changed from a quiet “Rat” to a heart-breaking Senior. Not only has she been successful in breaking hearts, but in making for herself a host of life long friends who will be sorry to part with her at gradu- ation. MARTHA MARGARET MOORE “Marthy” “Everything is as you take it.” Always laughing ! Does Martha ever have a serious moment? Not in English Class any way. Martha has been with us only two years, but in those two years we have found out what it is to have a wit in the class. Martha is a wonderful combination of a fun-loving girl and a conscientious student. Her gradu- ation will leave a vacancy in our school that will be felt by all. EMMA ELIZABETH MOORE “Lizzie” “Her ways are ways of pleasantness.” Here’s to Elizabeth, who with her sweet smile and gentle manners has won many friends at M. H. S. She is a friend to every student and one of which any student can justly be proud. She is, also, a faithful student and very successful. We wish you the best of luck, Elizabeth ! 24 CECIL STOCKLEY MILLS “Kit” “Tho only way to have a friend is to be one.” Cecil is a new addition to our class having come to us from Seaford in ’27. He has made himself popular while he has been with us, and we are dreading the time when we have to part. Cecil, we have enjoyed having you with us and hope your future will progress as your past has at M. H. S. EUDELIA CULLEN MILLS “De” ‘‘A true friend is forever a friend.” Kindness, consideration, and independence are three characteristics that are admired in any woman. “De” will always make friends where ever she goes because of her charming personality, and she will make a success in life because she does things well. A student such as “De” will certainly be missed at Morri- son High School. WILLIAM EARL PENN “Bill” “How noble in reason ! how infinite in faculty ! in apprehension how like a god.” William came to us this year from Penn- sylvania. However, even in this short time, he has made many friends among the students. Even though he is inclined to be love-sick, he is a fine athlete and also ranks high in his studies. William won much applause on the stage when appearing in “Mr. Bob,” and we are sure that he will merit just as much praise along whatever line he may decide to follow. 2.7 EVELYN HUNTER PURGOLD “Eva” “Quiet continuity of life is the principle of human happiness.” Evelyn is a very good student and shows her ability in the class room, and she is a girl who can be depended on. We who have associated with her recognize that, though very quiet and modest, Evelyn is a true friend, al- ways ready to help. COLEMAN WORNAM SHIELD “Mac” “Cheer up, the worst is yet to come I” Gangway ! Here comes a very carefree dis- position surrounded by a popular human being. Coleman is a real friend and a genuine friend, and with these characteristics, he has made a host of pals at M. H. S. When in trouble, “Mac” is forever willing to cheer you, and when in joy, he is always ready to join you. When he graduates, Morrison will be as lone- some as an Eskimo in the Amazon River. ROBERT THOMAS SMITH, Jr. “Smitty” “A little foolishness now and then, Is relished by the wisest men.” With a pleasant smile and a cheery word to all, “Smitty” has made friends with every one in the school. Good looks and a winning personality make him popular with the weaker sex. He has turned out to be one of the best business men for our annual, The Warwick, we have ever had. We certainly do appreciate all “Smitty” has done for us and The Warwick. So, here’s to you “Smitty”, and we hope your future associates will appreciate you as we have. 26 WILLIAM THOMAS SPARRER “Willie” “Silence is golden” William is very quiet. We do not know whether it is love, a tranquil disposition, or the lack of sleep that makes him so. He al- ways considers the other fellow. When asked why he didn’t play football, he replied, “Well, I’m afraid I’ll hurt somebody.” Nevertheless, he went out for football and made a “crack” player, one to be proud of. We, the Senior Class, wish him great success and happiness in his future life. MARCHANT DEGGS WORNOM “Ann” “Whatever men dare they may do.” In Marchant not only do we find our best looking Senior boy, but also an earnest sup- porter of M. H. S. along every line. In foot ball he has shown us his ability and school spirit. The success which he gained at Morri- son we hope will aways be found in his path through life. Good luck to you, Apollo. MILTON ARCHIE WHITE “Mit” “Why worry, everything will turn out all right.” “Mit” is the quietest boy in our class, but just wait until Mrs. Geddy goes out of the room. Then you can hear his voice above all. He is always full of fun, and willing to help the other fellow. We will miss you “Mit”, and we wish you best of luck in the future. PERCY DANIEL WHITE “Puss” “Little but loud.” Although Percy has been with us only two years, we sincerely regret that the time for parting has come. Morrison will certainly miss his pleasant influence and willingness to lend a hand in the duties of our school. The class of ’29 wishes you great success, Percy. HELEN ELIZABETH WEADE “Skeezix” “A low sweet voice most excellent thing in woman.” Helen is a good sport and a loyal friend. Once your friend, she is always your friend, and is always ready to help. Won’t we miss having some one dependable, capable and will- ing to push our school activities through? “Skeezix” is peppy y»t dignified, studious, yet not a grind. May, you always serve in your capacity, Helen. LUCILLE VIRGINIA WILLIAMSON “Celle” “Home is where the heart is.” Lucille is the only one of us that has any domestic talent. She likes Home Economics and is a brilliant student along this line. She holds several offices at Morrison High, among them that of Secretary of the Senior Class and President of the Home Economics Club. These testify as to her ability. M. H. S. will lose a good worker when “Celle” graduates in June. 28 BESSIE REBECCA WILSON “Bess” " With a countenance demure and a modest grace.” Bessie came to us in her Junior year but she has made herself known and popular with her quiet and winsome ways. Bessie is a true friend and where we have our acquaintances, Bessie has her friends. We have every reason to believe, Bessie, that Morrison has sent forth another who is capable of holding her place in the world. 29 Last Will and Testament of June Class, 1929 We, the class of ’29, having successfully covered the work wh’ch enables us to reach the goal of graduation, through four years of labor and struggle over the books of knowledge, and, being left with sound and disposed minds, do hereby swear to this our last will and testament, canceling all other wills which have heretofore been made by our reciprocal minds. First, to Mr. Mort, our principal, we extend our hearty appreciation for his support in pleasure and hardship which he so willingly has offered us. Second, to Miss Truitt we leave the privilege of being the chief executor in the new school. Third, to Mrs. Geddy, our home room teacher, we give our most sincere appreci- ation for the services and help which she extended to us. Fourth, to Miss Rock we will an automata machine to register excuses so she will not have so much trouble in keeping them sti-aight. Fifth, to the incoming Juniors we assign the privilege of residing in the Senior room, along with such Senior privileges as the faculty see fit to extend.

To anyone who wants the position, Helen Weade wills her place on “The War- wick” staff. And I, Marchant Wornom, will all the chewing gum which the Seniors have left under their desks to anyone who wants to get it off and make use of it. Sworn and subscribed to by the members of the Senior Class, this day of June 3rd, 1929, A.D. Marchant Wornom, ’29. 31 Class Prophecy I had always wanted to be a reporter on a New York newspaper, so, after finishing college, I worked for a few years on a small paper for experience. Then I journeyed toward the “Big City” and got a job with one of the papers there. About two weeks after I had been there, the editor asked me to take some papers over to the business manager of a rival company. On going into the private office of the manager, whom should I see but Robert Smith, the old business manager of our school annual. We talked over old times and I asked him if he knew anything about our ' old school mates. He said he thought we could find them all in the “morgue”, a term which is applied by newspaper men to the room where the printed doings and saying of all the notables are kept. We went into a room full of filing cab. nets. After some work we found the following: Carmel-by-the-Sea, Cal. — Among the events of this week in the artists’ colony there will be an exhibition of the works of America’s two most Famous Artists — Miss Julia Bergh and Miss Elizabeth Garrow.

Our class of ' 29? Yes — tender reminiscences We feel with sad repine. Happy reminiscences! The dear old days gone by. The pleasant reminiscences Of years when time did fly. Cheerful reminiscences! We feel them stealing round Yes — fondest reminiscences When thoughts of thee abound. Elizabeth Burleson, ’29. 34 Creed Winging our course through the vast field of education, the loyal Class of ’29 pauses a moment to reflect upon the lofty ideals and inspirations which have been our guiding star through the happy days at Morrison High School. Above all things, we believe in God, the Almighty, our maker and best friend. We believe, next, in our United States, the leader of the world. We believe in Virginia, our pride, the mother of all states. We believe in our native county, Warwick, and the dear old town of Morrison, where our High School is located. We also believe in our enthusiastic principal, Mr. Mort, and we sincerely appreciate his every effort to further our education and happiness. We believe in our faithful home room teacher, Mrs. Geddy, and thank her very earnestly for her unceasing toil in our behalf. We believe in our dear teachers who have tried to instill in us the higher principles and standards of the school. We believe in the members of the Patrons’ League who have proved their interest in our affairs. We believe in our treasured Annual, which will always bring us happy memories of our school days. We believe in the athletics, clubs, and all organizations of the school. They are essential to the proper growth and advan cement of our education. We believe in the student body of Morrison High and feel as- sured that if they follow the guidance of the school they will develop into the best of citizens. Lastly, we believe in our own beloved Senior Class, which has never been excelled. We realize that our motto: Not At the Top But Climbing, is an appropriate one and that our graduation is not the top, although it is a big milestone in our career. Elizabeth Burleson, ’29. 35 Class History Welcome! How good that one word sounded to us, when way back in ’25 we first entered the doors of Morrison High School. We were half frightened, and yet determined to make our class one to be remembered. How we looked up to that year’s upper class-men, resolving ' to pattern our class after theirs, so that we too might some day be a worthy model. It seems not unlike a dream, these years, four of them, that we have traveled together in work and in play. First we chose our Class Motto: We Can and We Will, which found much favor, and proved a good one. This year a prize was offered for the best short story for the Annual, which aroused much interest among the students. Our excuse for not winning this was the fact that, we were but lowly Freshman. This year Morrison’s Football Team proved itself one of the best in the state in accordance with the size. The girls also proved their worth at basketball. We gave our first play, “A Soldier’s Reprieve,” which was a very fine success. We also did our best to help along the Annual by selling tags, lolapops, candy and the like. After three short months, back we came, now Sophs, sentenced for nine long months. We took our old home room, whei’e we were once more presented to watch the trains go by, not more than seven times a day. We found this very hard, as we were quite often forced to stop our lessons to give way to the train. We gave the play, “Ain’t Women Wonderful”, and although the girls thought it was very good, those of the opposite sex were not so hearty in their approval. This year also brought one of the best school plays given by the Morrison High School, entitled, “Stepping Around”, and was voted one of the best of the season. This year Morrison High also held their first track meet, and although we were last in line for points, we left resolving, to lead the list the coming year. We also gave the upper class-men a party to show our undy- ing appreciation for the sisterly and brotherly advice they so readily gave us free. And so another year ended. Vacation over, back we came for another year as flighty Juniors. We set to work to do our best possible for the Annual, and gave a fine reproduction of the “Fashion Show” which had been showing for many months in the theatres of the day. The blush- ing bride and the dashing groom carried their parts so well that it was hard to believe they were really inexperiencd in the art. The most interesting occurrence of the year was the planning of the Senior entertainment. It was decided to give them a beach party at Yorktown. After much due excitement of chaperons and transportation, quite a number of Juniors and Seniors were present. Although every one had a fine time, due to the weather the trip was pronounced all wet. Finally we were Seniors, real ones, supposed to be dignified and high-hatted. But tell us, please how we could preserve these rare characteristics, when we were forced to flee from one class to our home room and then back to another class in five minutes. At last came a day when we were given privileges to be remembered. Seniors and Seniors alone were allowed to use the front stairs. Along with this great miracle came the Senior privilege to ride the last bus home to Hilton. This year brought forth some of the best class officers ever elected at Morrison High School. Elizabeth Garrow, President; Charles Davis, Vice-President; Lucille Williamson, Secretary; and Elizabeth 3G Burleson, having proved her worth as Treasurer of our Class for three years, was unanimously voted Treasurer to complete a four year term. It was but a short time before our pins arrived and they were promptly acclaimed the best Morrison High School had even had. Along- with these, came our class motto, colors and announcements, and last, but least, the business of our Annual. Then came the never to be forgotten Kid Day on March 28th. It was with a great deal of display that we used our Kiddie Day privileges of chewing gum, and eating our most popular jelly beans. Percy White and William Penn made their debut on this remarkable day and showed their unmistakable and most unusual musical talent. After a great deal more excitement over our verses to be recited, the program in assembly went off in fine style. The Seniors came in very well this year in athletics, having boys on the football squad and on the baseball nine. The boys and girls both were very successful in basketball as well. Now, after four years, in our memories still linger thoughts of pleasure and work with our classmates, and we are looking forward to our banquet, entertainments, Commencement, and our Baccalaureate sermon. And, with these comes the end of our high school days, after which we shall face the world as, Alumni, leaving Morrison with a deep feeling of regret, and hoping that as we face life’s problems we will re- member our Senior motto: Not At the Top, But Climbing.

Well, what is a principal? He’s the man who sticks “J. R. Mort” to our diplomas. Whose diplomas ? The Seniors’ diplomas. What are diplomas ? Diplomas are pieces of paper which we receive after bluffing the teachers for four years. Well, who are the teachers ? The teachers are the people who love to make life miserable for the Seniors. Who are the Seniors? The Seniors are the boys and girls who give away free advice to the Juniors ? Who are the Juniors? The Juniors are the ones who resent the advice of the Seniors. Do the Juniors like the Seniors ? No, the Juniors do not like the Seniors. Why? Because the Juniors want to get rid of the Seniors. Why do the Juniors want to get rid of the Seniors? Because then the Juniors will be Seniors themselves. Then who will be Juniors ? The Sophomores will be Juniors. Well, who are the Sophomores? The Sophomores are the people that feel it their duty to “razz” the Rats. Who are the Rats ? The Rats are the Freshmen, who think they should be Seniors — sticking to the motto: “Eventually, why not now?” 39 The Senior Class Would Go to Rack and Ruin If: Louis Barnes would have a date.

Atkinson - Athletic Director Principal Captain Football Captain Baseball T reasurer J. D.Crigler c _ Athletic ' Director 61 WILSON ELLIS Quarter-back Wilson Ellis, better known as “Smokey”, is on? of the best quarter-backs this school has ever known. He is full of tnat old fighting spirit for M. H. S., and he sure makes his opponents feel “smokey” when he passes them on his way for a touchdown. Although he has been with us but three years, he made his letter the first year and proved himself worthy of the title “Captain”. ELSWORTH STOCKMAN Tackle Elsworth played two positions, back field and line. So, when in a tight place, Elsworth, known as the “Washington Monument,” was always the man to call on to open up opposing line, and seldom did he fail. He made life miserable for his opponents. His smash- ing attack on the offensive and stonewall defense won for him a great reputation. BRADLEY ELLIS End This was Bradley’s first year in the high school and also his first year on the squad. He was the only fresh- man to make the team. Although Bradley is light, he is a quick, clear thinker and has proved to us that he is capable of managing a team. His good generalship coupled with his never-say-die spirit will make him strong for a berth on the team next year. 62 CHARLES DAVIS Center “Buck” was our center this year and a star one at that. When the line needed a good backstop, there was no better man on the team. “Buck” has been with us for a long time playing on the team since he was in the seventh grade. He was one of the best centers Morrison has yet had. MARCHANT WORNOM Half-back Marchant showed his endurance and grit and his powerful driving force by making many substantial gain through the line. He is a valuable man to the team and his place will be hard to fill. BEVERLY WEAVER Guard Beverly is Morrison’s sky-scraper right-guard. Morri- son can well boast of the old fighting spirit he showed. He used his strength and height to every advantage. Beverly will be missed next year on the football team, and not only by his team-mates, but also by other teams. 63 ALVIN KELLUM Guard This was Kellum’s first season on the varsity, but he played his position like an old timer. He used his head and that never-say-die spirit proved a vital factor in his star playing. Better results are expected from Kellum next year. RICHARD SEWARD Full-back This was Dick’s second year on the varsity and he can well be remembered for his brilliant playing in the greatest game of the season, that with Fredericksburg, when he took the ball sixty-five yards for a touchdown that won the game for M. H. S. We expect more of Dick, next season, as he hits the line like a truck. WILLIAM SPARRER Guard William, the star heavyweight from “Bull Island”, is the heaviest man on the team and used his weight to every advanatge. Many thrills were given the crowds who saw William make his crashing attacks through the lines of his opponents and few gains were made over the left side of the line. 64 JOSEPH ROWE Half-hack Joe is without doubt the best combination at Morrison High of good looks and popularity, especially with the femi- ninity. Although light, Joe is a very hard man to put down. And speaking of tackling, why that man simply knows how. Joe has that gritty and “kill me if you can” disposition, coupled with speed, and headwork which made him a danger- ous man on the gridiron. We are all glad that we shall have Joe with us for another year. RAYMOND BEER End This was Beer’s first year out for football and he was a little uneducated along the line of the pigskin. He came through and made good. Charley was the next to the lightest man on the team and usually after a punt was the first man down the field. He was old rough and ready and gave his opponents many knocks. QUINCY WRIGHT Full-back Quincy was a hard and gritty player. His speed to- gether with his ability to pass those long spirals made him one of Morrison’s outstanding players. He was a most en- joyable team-mate, for there was no harder fighter or fairer sport than he. This was Quincy’s last year of High School football. 65 WILLIAM PENN Tackle Penn held down left tackle like an all star. As a hard fighter and a steady player, he surely displayed splendid spirit in every game in which he played. The team will feel his loss greatly next year. COLEMAN SHIELD End Coleman was one of our speediest men when it came to stopping those end runs, for very sel- dom did a man make any gain around his end. Coleman’s most important quality was his ability to make those driving tackles. He could point his man out every time. When the ball was kick- ed, Coleman was the first man down the field and usually had his man before he had time to move. 66 The Football Season 43 ® Viewed from the standpoint of actual field victories, the 1928 football season of Morrison High School would not be judged the most successful season that the f armers have ever had, but it proved itsen one of the most interesting yet experienceu in the last several years. With five letter men back, Coach J. D. Crigler, a former William and Mary star, faced the problem of building up a team that could face the heavy schedule which the manager had planned for the season. In the Hampton game the defeat showed the team its weakness at the beginning of the season. Our line was swamped by the Crabbers, but our team, though tired ana shaky, fought it out, and found that tne Crabbers’ attack was not as dangerous as imagined. Wilson Ellis, the captain, played well in backing up the line with the aid of Charles Davis our star center. The next game was with Botetourt. This game was played on our home ground, and the team had clearly seen the mistakes maae in the hampton game and benefited from them by winning by a score of 32-0. The Farmers tought until every point possible was gained. The whole team showed up exceptionally well. The game with Achilles on our home gridiron proved another added victory for the Farmers. Although our opponents played good football and came close to defeating the Farmers, they did not have enough drive to penerate the heavy ime of the Farmers. The game with Oceana was played in a downpour of rain, and it was impossible for either team to do its best. Fumbles were frequent and players often slipped and missed golden opportunities. The Oceana eleven were faster than the Morrison eleven, and this gave them the chance to play a better game in the rain. They swam to victory over the Farmers after a hard and one of the wettest games of the season. The most eventful game of the year was played on the Hopewell gridiron. In the first half, the Fanners did not play their best football for the main defects were the lack of speed, and drive in the backfield. In the last half, the Fanners mended ' these defects and put more drive in each play than in any game before. They pushed the Hopewell eleven back with each play and would have won had the game lasted longer. During the game with Poplar Branch, a deluging rainstorm that blurred the plays of the teams and turned the Morrison football held into a sea of mud failed to stop the driving attack of the Morrisonites. This was the second hornet game during the season which was played in the rain. The Poplar Branch eleven, a team which we had never played before, gave us a good game in which we were easily victorious. On the 19th of November the return game was played on the Botetourt gridiron. A new team faced us in this game unlike the one which we had conquered early in the season by a score of 32-0. Tne powerful driving effect of the Botetourt eleven proved a setback to the Farmers and they nearly defeated us. This game was full of action from beginning to end. When the whistle ended the game, the score was tied. The trip to Poplar Branch, North Carolina, was the longest one of the season. The return game was recorded for Morrison after a bitter struggle in which one of our star players, Quincy Wright, hurt his finger and was relieved from the game. In what was probably the hardest and best fought game of the season, the Farmers with odds, dope, and opinion all against them, entertained the Fredericksburg team in a match on the home field. With colors flying and teamwork that left the critics and dopesters gasping, the Morrison strong eleven swept the Fredericksburg team like nobody’s business and fought their way to a great victory. Dick Seward, the star of the game, played fullback and broke through the opponents’ line on one play and ran sixty-five yards for the touchdown. Wilson Ellis, our captain, drop- kicked for the extra point. With such an ending, the early errors of the year were forgotten and the students declared the season a great success. The 1928 football season ended one of Morrison’s most successful football seasons. Five games were won, three were lost and one was tied. A banquet was given the boys by the Home Economics Club. Coach Young of William and Mary was the speaker of the evening. At the conclusion of his speech, Coach Crigler awarded the following boys letters for their work on the team during the year: William Sparrer, Marchant Wornom, Wilson Ellis, Dick Seward, Joseph Rowe, Raymond Beer, Coleman Shield, Charles Davis, Elsworth Stockman, William Penn, Bradley Ellis, Beverly Weaver, Quincy Wright, and Alvin Kellum.

With interested membership and efficient leaders, the leagues are keeping in touch with the Co-operative Educational Association and have ranked as banner leagues for the past seven years. Each year the leagues contribute generously to many school activities. They pay the expenses of delegates to conventions, care for the sick, furnish first aid supplies, and purchase educational records, pictures, and books for the schools. The Morrison League this year, in addition to its other activities, has given $225.00 to the support of “The Warwick” and athletics. The leagues of Warwick County, through their interest, loyalty, and generosity, are promoting a strong feeling of sympathy and co-operation between parents and teachers.

Colonel Chester’s plantation was named Warwick-on-the- James and was vast, well cultivated, and very productive. It bordered the James River and comprised what is now Nelson Place and the new development named alter it. It extended from where Hilton is now built, to within half a mile of the present day village of Morrison, and in the other direction from the river to wnere the railroad now runs. The Colonel, with his wife and only child, lived in the beautiful Georgian mansion, which he had built as his home. The house was surrounded by great spreading trees, fine terraces, and a garden like that of Yonc rlaii, m Yorktown. The income from his property made the Colonel a ricn man. Dorothy had a happy childhood on this estate, and in her lovely home, with her loving mother and indulgent father. She played on the iavvn among the trees, and on the beach, For playmates she had pets ana the little colored children of the plantation, who loved and worshipped her. Everyone liked her because of her beauty and her sunny disposition. She did not go to school, as we do, but was taught reading, Latin, French, and embroidery by a governess. Her mother taught her sewing and cooking; also, she learned what was later to help her and her beloved cause so much, the arc or being a lady’s maid. Dorothy was carefree and happy until she was fifteen years old, when the gaunt, grim, specter of war invaded our beautiful section, the peninsula which has been the scene of two wars and of preparations for two others. The people in Virginia loved freedom and representative government, and they had for some time been protesting against the tyranny of royai governors. Then had come news of the suffering of the people of Boston. A little later Patrick Henry made his fiery declamation in the assembly at Richmond, in- spiring the hope of freedom in the hearts of the people of Virginia and of all the other colonies. When war was declared by the Continental Congress, Dorothy’s father went north to fight for liberty as a Colonel of Virg.nia Militia. Dorothy and her mother, with the aid of their colored servants, worked ceaselessly, doing everything they could to help the American cause. They molded bullets, wove cloth, and made clothes for Washington’s poorly clad soldiers. They even cut up their old linens to make bandages for the wounded. Each time crops were reaped, or cattle killed, a good part of the produce was sent to help feed his half-starved army. The Colonel lent great sums of money to the Continental Congress. Dorothy’s carefree days were over; she worked many hours each day. However, in spite of her great efforts for the patriotic cause, in which she so firmly believed, she always secretly longed to take a more active part in helping the colonists to win freedom. Often she wished that she were a boy so that she could go and fight in the ranks. Then the opportunity, for which she longed, came. On the eighteenth of April, 1781, General Phillips, a British officer, who had an unenviable reputation for cruelty, embarked two thousand five hundred men on board his smaller vessels, and sailed up the James River, in order to destroy everything that had escaped the ravages of that traitor, Arnold. He landed at Burrel’s Ferry. He sent foraging parties through the peninsula, who destroyed all public stores and property which fell in their way. The officer in command of one party saw that it was a very fair and fertile land, that there were numerous large plantations, and he decided that it would be a very good section from which to get supplies. He so advised General Phillips. Because it was central, between Portsmouth and Old Point, and Williamsburg and Richmond, Phillips established several garrisons at 84 different selected points in the section, for the purpose of securing supplies, relaying messages, and checking any advances which might be made by the Americans. Adjoining the Chester estate was a plantation owned by a very loyal Tory. His name was Pickens, and that of his estate, Elmwood. At night the British officers in command of the different garrisons met at his house to exchange messages and information and to make plans. It was now June and Cornw r allis was soon to come up from the south. Dorothy knew that if she could just hear what was discussed by the British officers in meetings at Elmwood, the information she could obtain would be extremely valuable to the Americans. Her plan was this; she would pose as an English lady’s maid and apply at Elmwood for a position as maid to Pickens wife, Mistress Pickens. Dorothy’s mother tried to make her abandon her dangerous scheme, but no entreaties would avail. Her plan really was a dangerous one to carry out. For even though she was a girl, if she were discovered spying, she would be taken to General Phillips, and she could expect little mercy from such a man. Her self-appointed mission required infinite wit, tact, and courage. She confided her idea to her cousin, Jack McDonald, an American captain and officer of a near-by American garrison. He, too, tried to dissuade her, but when he saw it was useless he agreed to help her. After she had secured the information that was needed, she agreed to send a note to Jack, informing him where he could meet her. When Dorothy applied to Mistress Pickens for a job, she wore the plain clothes of a servant and gave her name as Dorothy Baxter. She said that when she came from England she had been indentured to the Chesters, but that now her term of service was past and as she did not sympathize with the patriotic ideas of the Chesters and did not want to do any work for the American army, she had left to look for another position. The Chesters had never been friendly with the Pickenses, and so Dorothy was unknown to the latter. She succeeded very well in her deception, and Mistress Pickens was very glad to get an experienced maid, for the colored women were not expert. Dorothy worked very diligently, though Mistress Pickens was not a very pleasant lady, nor an easy one to please. At mght it was Dorothy’s duty to serve wine and food to the officers who met in the house; here luck favored her. Because she was pretty and amiable the officers liked her, and often allowed her to remain in the room when they discussed plans. So it was very easy for her to secure all the information she needed. At the end of three months Dorothy had acquired a great deal of in- formation about the plans of Phillips and Cornwallis. It was now important that she should get to her cousin the information she had secured about Corn- wallis’ scheme to fortify Yorktown and Gloucester. It was necessary for her cousin to meet her somewhere near the house, for she had to herself only a little time in the afternoon. Sh decided to send her message to him by a young boy w r ho she believed to be loyal to the American cause and who went every day to Jack’s camp. Calling him one morning, she gave him a note, saying “Take this message to Captain Jack McDonald.” She also gave him some money. The boy, Tom Garnett by name, left Dorothy and went down the road. A little way off he took out the note, broke the seal, and read this: Dear Cousin Jack, I have written a paper containing important information. Meet me in Tyrill’s wood at four o’clock this afternoon. Your cousin, Dorothy. “Wouldn’t it be a good joke to take this to Captain Duncan instead of Captain McDonald,” chuckled Tom to himself. “I believe I’ll do it.” He took it to the British officer, Captain Duncan, who, as he read it, had a surprised expression on his face. “So the little maid is not so stupid after all,” he exclaimed. “Well, I can get her and keep her from ever giving Mc- Donald those papers.” During the day Dorothy was nervous. Somehow she began to distrust Tom Garnett and fear that perhaps he had not delivered her message. So she 85 sent a second note to McDonald, this time by a trustyworthy fanner. In this message she told her cousin that if she were unable to meet him she would hide the papers in a certain blasted oak which they both knew. At three thirty Dorothy left the house and arrived at the wood about fifteen minutes later. She waited and when in a half hour her cousin did not come she became anxious. Then she heard hoof-beats on the earth near-by. " That must surely be cousin Jack,” she thought. However, it was not! Imagine her surprise and fright, when there came in sight, not her cousin, but a red-coated officer with four men. The officer rode up near her and then dismounted, taking off his hat to Dorothy, who was now pale and nervous. She knew that even though she was a girl, she would surely receive some punishment for her spying, and what was to her more important, the Americans would never receive the valuable information. “How do you do, Miss Dorothy?” greeted Captain Duncan, for it was he. Dorothy made a curtsy; she knew that she must keep him talking as long as possible, lor there was a possibility that her cousin, Jack, might come. “I did not expect to see you in this lonely wood, Captain,” she said. “But you made an appointment with me, and I always keep appoint- ments with ladies” replied the captain. “I did not make an appointment with you,” retorted Dorothy, “and be- sides it is not polite for ladies to propose meetings with men. It isn t at all proper.” “Well, I have your note,” the captain laughed. “That note was not meant for you, and you know it,” she answered. “Anyhow, I have come for those papers,” the captain said, the smile going from his face, leaving it cold and stern. “What will you do with me if I give them up,” Dorothy tried to bargain. Much as I dislike to do it, I will have to take you to General Phillips,” replied the captain. “And if I don’t give them to you,” countered Dorothy. “Then I shall have to take them from you,” the captain answered. At that moment Dorothy heard the sound of horses coming that way. Duncan, however, was looking at Dorothy and did not hear them. To divert his attention, Dorothy handed him some blank papers she carried in h:r hand, for she had hidden the real papers in the oak tree as soon as she had come into the wood. Duncan took them and put them in his pocket. Suddenly the horses and riders Dorothy had heard were upon them. The foremost one, Cousin Jack, for it was he, reined in his horse and drew his pistol. The four soldiers with him followed his example. The two sides were evenly matched, but Jack’s men were prepared and Duncan’s were not. “Hands up”, commanded Jack Duncan and his men complied, unwillingly. “I take you as prisoners in the name of the Continental Congress,” said Jack, “Throw down your swords.” When they had done this Duncan turned to Dorothy. “Well, you win after all,” he said. “And besides,” Dorothy laughed in relief from strain, “You don’t even have the real papers. I hid them in a tree. Those which you have are blanks.” “You have my full respect and admiration, Miss Dorothy,” called Captain Duncan as he was lead away. We all know that the American authorities received the information all right and that they won the Battle of Yorktown, which closed the war. But Miss Dorothy Chester’s part in this history of our country has been some- what forgotten. Our dear old High School is built on the very spot where Dorothy met Captain Duncan. While her part in the winning of freedom is not so well known, we, the students of Morrison High School, will always try to emulate her courage, loyalty, patience, and wit.
