LORAINE AMORY “True-hearted, whole-hearted, loyal and faithful.” Here’s to Loraine a pal for the years. Loraine is, and always will be her true natural self, unassuming and dignified. She is as wel- come as sunshine to us, because she is always smiling and showing us a way through our troubles. She is true and loyal., as her motto shows and ever stands by her friends in times of need. Such friends are needed everywhere, and we are sure Loraine will meet untold happiness in life. LOUIS CLARKE BARNES " Slow to speak, and slow to act, Yet a jolly good sport at that. 4 ’ Our biggest baby was no other than Louis Barnes. But that’s nothing Louis, we haven’t anything on you because were all babies once ourselves. Aside from being a baby Louis is our most sensitive and sympathetic classmate. During the time he has been with us he has proved a loyal friend. We wish you luck Louis. VIRGINIA RUTH BRANDT “Blondie” “How far that little candle throws her beam ! So shines a good friend in a naughty world.” Here’s to the most athletic girl of the Senior class. She is a true and a loving friend to every one, and always has a smile and a kind word for all of her classmates. “Blondie” is one who flirts with all of the boys, for she has those winning ways. “Blondie”, here’s wish- ing that you may win your way in the world as easily as you have won friends at M.H.S. BESSIE RUTH BRAY “Navy” “Happy go lucky wherever she goes”. Bessie is one of the happy go lucky girls of our class, always out for a good time and a lot of fun. Is she popular? Just try to count her admirers. Bessie is not only popular a- mong the shieks. She also has a great many girl friends. If “Navy” is as successful in her future life as she has been at M. H. S. every- thing will be like a fairy story for her. 15 LOUISE ANN BROWN " Fair and sweet, gracious to greet, charming to meet. " Although Louise has been hailed the beauty of our class, she is still the same quiet lovable girl that she has always been. Through our four short years of high school life. A stu- dent full of pep and school spirit has placed her high among our thoughts. Being a good all round sport, we know she will attain her goal in life. JEFFERSON ELLIOTT DAVIS " T. P.” " For discords make the sweetest airs " . " T. P. " is our most attractive boy, and has the happy faculty of being able to combine work and pleasure successfully. His cheerful grin and eveready wise cracks are always wel- come to the Seniors. He is one of our best students and is always ready to help others. Elliott and his saxophone are surely destined for some famous jazz orchestra. MARY KARENE DRYDEN " To know her is to love her " . Karene has only been with us two years, but we have learned to love her sweet smile and attractive ways. She is a lovable com- panion and has a host of friends at Morrison. As to her knowledge ability, she is an excellent student and does her best in everything. We only hope Karene, that you will meet with as much success at Harrisonburg as you have had with us. HARRY WILSON ELLIS " Smokey " " Smokey” is an all-round sport and athlete. He is friendly, conscientious, dependable, and ever willing and ready to help in anything that will benefit M. H. S. He clings to his motto because he is always smiling regardless of the rough places in life’s journey. We are sure the future has great things in store for you, " Smokey " and we are looking forward to hearing of your success. 16 ODELL VIRGINIA FENTON “O’dear” “Smiles from the channels of a future tear.” Three cheers for “O’dear” our champion giggler. Odell is a conscientious hard worker and makes the honor roll every month. This “little girl” most always has a merry smile but when she is not smiling, you had better look out, for you never know whats coming. Everyone delights in her fascinating personal- ity and whenever you are blue just find “O’- dear” and you’ll soon be back on the level again. H JOSEPHINE HARRIS FOARD “Jo” “To brisk notes in cadence beating Glance her twinkling feet.” Whenever we think of someone singing and dancing, we think of “Jo”. As we pass through the hall between bells going to classes, we hear a light tune and we may well know who it is. Her bright smile and sunny disposition always starts a cheerful day for everyone of us. She has only been with us two years, but during this time she has won many friends. We feel sure that success will be hers all through life. LOIS ELOISE LEE “Once a friend, Always a friend”. Lois is our best all around girl. She came to us from Guam during our Sophomore year and has made many friends at Morrison High school. We are sure she will make many more when she leaves our dear ole Alma Mater. Lois, we hope your future will be as bright and cheerful as your days with us. We hate to give you up this year but friends must part sometimes. We hope that you will have success in your poetic writings in the future. MARGARET BELLE LEWIS “Margie” “Laugh and the world laughs with you.” Margaret is one of the “happy-go-lucky” type and is always ready to cheer us when we are feeling blue. It looks as though Margaret has a great weakness somewhere in the typing room, but we are unable to decide whether it is the teacher or the typewriters. She has musical ability and perhaps some day her music will come to us over the radio. You have our best wishes for your success, “Margie”. •m RWIGK 7A 17 vm mncK JOSEPH W. LONGACHER “Know thy stuff and be able to strut it.” Joe is one of our most popular senior boys. During the three years he has been with us, his helpfulness and friendly disposition have won him many friends. Joe’s high grades show his learning capacity. He will be greatly missed by all his classmates. We do not know what business he will engage in, in the future, but we have the greatest assurance for his success. ELISE KATRINE MEELHEIM “Heartbreaker” “The fairest are found among art.” Here’s to the heartbreaker of our class. Although a heartbreaker, she is a great friend to have, not only in school, but on the outside too. She’s a jolly, good natured girl in every way. Elise has artistic ability and has cheered us many times when we were blue, by her “cute” drawings. We are wishing you luck in your future life Elise, and we hope to hear from your art some day. V THOMAS MORRISON McCOMR “Tommie” The “Hot Air Broadcaster” of the school was none other than Thomas, and we are well proud of him. He did not have the ambition to do great work, but what he did was done with excessive labor or study and was well accomplished. Thomas came to us in ’27 from Connecticut, and in these three years we have found him to be a valued friend and have cherished his volumous remarks. We will miss you next year Thomas, but will expect great things from you as an orator. VIRGINIA HAZEL MORGAN “Sis” “What delightful hosts are they; life and love” Virginia’s quietness and reliability has won a place in the hearts of all her classmate. Al- though she does not talk as much as might be expected, what she says is well worth hearing. We feel sure that Virginia will make friends wherever she goes, for she has been a good student and friend to every one. Here’s wish- ing you the best of luck Virginia. 18 EDNA ESTELLE MORSE “The thing: that goes farthest towards making life worth while. That casts the least, and does the most is just a pleasant smile.” Here’s to Estelle, the cutest girl in our Senior Class. Estelle is not only cute but she is smart too. She is one of our best friends Her bright smile and winning ways have helped us all through our high school years. She is quiet and dignified, but always ready to laugh at the right time. Estelle is dependable and ever willing to help others. We know that success will always be hers. SHERLOCK H. REDMAN “Not extremely tall but neither w r as Napo’con” Although Sherlock is a shy, timid, youth and slow of speech, yet he is quick to learn, and is a general favorite among his classmates. He is very dependable and when he attempts anything he generally succeeds. He is willing at all times to help a classmate in distress. Sherlock, it has been a great pleasure to have you among us and we wish you the best of success in life. ¥ JOSEPH SAMUEL ROWE “Joe” “Handsome is as handsome does.” We all know that Joe is as fine as he is handsome. His steady character and ready humor w ' ill always make him scores of friends w ' herever he may be. Joe expects to go to Annapolis. We know he will climb to the top there, as he has at Morrison. We have had Joe for our Class President and leader for four years and can predict with confidence complete success in all his undertakings. LOLA MAE SLAIGHT “Brightening life with happy song, As merry as the day is long.” Laughing merrily, singing gaily, meeting life with sunny expectation, that is Lola Mae. What does she care if things go wrong — they will get right again. She does not mind if skies are dark, everything is bright around her. She has her opinions and her ideas,, and is never afraid to defend them. A happy, friend- ly girl, much needed in this cold and serious w ' orld, that’s Lola Mae. 19 — o- he up HP ■ ■ iwR ' Jufe he am “iHKRffilCK 7r ;vj LILLIAN ESTHER SNIDOW “Lil” “A pleasing countenance is no slight advantage.” Hail to our best dancer ! When the roll was called back in ’27, Lil was “on deck” She has been with us ever since. Whenever any help is needed Lil is always ready to do what she can. Lillian has made a fine record at M. H. S. and we feel sure that she will keep up her good work. HELEN UZZELL TRAYLOR “The laugh that win” Helen with her jolly carefree disposition is the joy maker of the class. She is here, there, everywhere, spreading fun as she goes and making friends galore. Helen tells us just what she thinks, although she is a great talker and has quite a lot of independence, we are inclined to like it. We expect great things of our Helen in the future. CLIFFORD NELSON WATERS “Jones” “Timid and loyal”. “Jones” is one of the record holders of the Senior Class. He is very studious. You may go into the Senior homeroom during lunch hour, or half hour period, and you wil l al- ways see him studying one thing or the other. We hope that he will keep up his good stan- dard in later life and break some of the world’s records. Go to it “Jones” and break “em” to pieces. We know you can do it. HELOISE MARIE WATSON “Kitty” “A friend in need, is a friend indeed, And such she has been to us.” Marie has been with us the four years of our service at Morrison. We all well remem- ber how she has stuck with us through our many troubles. She has always gone to the limit in doing her share of work in trying to make the class successful in its undertakings. She does excellent work in her studies and makes life cheerful and happy for all those who come in contact with her. We will miss Marie in person but never in memory, for she will live with us always. 20 MARION C. WHITAKER “Mary Ann Marion is our typical and most dignified Senior, and well deserves both. She is a friend to all and will always be remembered for her sweet smile and winning ways. Marion i • studious too, and painstaking with her school work. She surely believes in the motto, “What is worth doing at all, is worth doing well.” Besides her many other qualities, she has talent along the literary line. What more could we say. LILLIAN EMMA WHITE “Dolly “An ounce of mirth is worth a pound of sorrow.” We are proud to claim Lillian as our class- mate. Nothing ever worries her. Her cheer- ful and carefree disposition is always bubbling over with merriment and wit. No one could ever be blue with “Dolly” around. “Dolly” is one also very pretty. Her sparkling brown eyes attract attention wherever she goes. She’s a real pal and a sympathetic friend to all. But talent ! — why “Dolly” is one of the most artis- tic girls in M. H. S. We hope that “Dolly” will study interior decorating when she leaves high school, because her talent is worth de- veloping. MILDRED ADAMS WOOD “Bill “A little nonsense now and then Is relished by the wisest men.” Here’s to “Bill”, a Senior who has helped us solve may athletic problems on Field Day. She is an all-round athlete, a friend to all and a willing helper in all school activities. Speak- ing of ambition, why Mildred is ambition plus ambition and students of her ability will al- ways find a desirable place in this world. LAUREN A. YODER “Hap” “Try anything once.” Lauren’s smile has won him many friends in his four years at Morrison. He is a good sport and is game for anything. Lauren is very popular among the opposite sex. We hope that his good luck will go with him through- out life.’ 21 «J» ' r j Senior Class History SNeJ) Upon introducing the Class of ’30 to you, I will say that it would bo impossible, in such limited space, to relate all the class has done in its four years at M. H. S. I feel, however, that a few lines will suffice to show you our real worth. Our class of ’30 made its debut into Morrison High School society September, 1926. There were so many enrolled that one room could not hold every one, so two rooms were given to us. The first few days were days of fun, but soon we settled down to real work. We selected as our motto “If we think we can, we can”, and tried hard to live up to it. Wc had several good athletes in our class who made a good showing for that year. We came in second place in the activities on Field Day. The next fall we came rushing back to school, gloriously proud that we were not “rats” anymore, but Sophomores. This time we worked hard in order to benefit the annual and make it a success. We succeeded. Again, we made a fairly good mark on Field Day. We came in third this time. Then came our Junior year. It was at this time that our influence was growing to be a real strength and aid to the school. This year our athletes carried us to glory by winning first place in the contests on Field Day. The May Queen was chosen from our class. We were indeed proud Juniors then. At last, we have run patiently the race that was set before us. We are now Seniors. We are within the glow of the sunshine, and are in a position that brings both happiness and regret. We are happy to be gradu- ating out into the world, yet regretting to leave our splendid faculty and our beloved Alma Mater. Farewell to you, Morrison High School. We are leaving you now with hearts full of gratitude for all you have done for us in the past four years. We go forth confident of success with praise on our lips for you.

And I, Lola Mae Slaight, will my position as Executor of the Senior will to anyone whom the Junior Class elects. Sworn and subscribed to by the members of the Senior Class, this day of June 4th, 1930, A. D. Lola Mae Slaight, ’30. 25 Class Prophecy One bright spring morning I took a stroll through the woods to hunt for arbutus. It was very hard to find, but I finally filled my basket full of the sweet-smelling flowers. I was very tired so I sat down to rest before returning home. As I sat there my thoughts turned to my old classmates of 1930, and I wondered what fortunes old father time had set aside for them. “Would you really like to know?” asked a wee voice. Surprised I looked around and there on my basket sat a tiny fairy. “Could you tell me?” I asked, hardly believing my eyes. The tiny fairy laughed and pointed to my flowers. Instead of arbutus, there were little cards of all different colors with a verse on each one. I picked them up and read. Our Editor-in-Chief of the Warwick we know, Is none other than Joseph Rowe. This little card says he’ll look very grand, As he keeps in step with the Annapolis band. In the Short Story magazine you will see The famous author, Lois Lee. She’ll drop her dancing and good times too, To write good stories for all of you. Joe Longac-her, an eloquent lawyer will make, For his secretary, Margaret Lewis he surely will take. They will start at the bottom and work as they climb, For the welfare of our country and ideals sublime. Loraine Amory will make herself known As she tells bedtime stories about cottage or throne. When the little tots gather near the radio they stand She takes them all happy to fair fairyland. In the little church at Hilton awalking down the aisle, lou will find Marie and Smokey both with a happy smile. When they’re happily married no worries will come near, They will work and plan together for their little home so dear. When you look at the pages of the New York Times, There you’ll see Helen’s write-ups in big headlines. If there’s a scandal anywhere in town, Helen’s on the job to get the “low down”. A little sign board away down in the glen, Says visit the log cabin around the bend. To satisfy your hunger if you would, Drop in at the cafe of Brandt and Wood. Karene and Odell each a faithful friend, Friendship like theirs will never end, As partners, they will start a novelty shop, Success and good luck forever on top. 26 In the big brick building of the Dodge Brothers’ plant There will be a large office — miss it, you really can’t — The chief designer of the new speed boat Is our friend Sherlock, and inventor of great note. Three years from now, Virginia Morgan will be In white cap and uniform, comely to see, With a speedy step and a steady hand, She’ll help the suffering throughout the land. Elise, Lillian, and Estelle Will design fashions very well, Their sign will be seen in electric lights. Their slogan will be “We fit you right.” Happy Yoder might start out slow, But he’ll get to the top of the ladder we know, And when we visit his dairy farm We’ll see our boasting was no false alarm. The destiny of dear Lola and Jo, Is to own an up-to-date studio; When some of the dance steps are hard to be caught, They’ll teach you how real grace is sought. A Doctor that’s a good one, has no equal so they say, Elliott will practice medicine, be busy night and day. Marion and Lilliam will specialize In an art that will make them both happy and wise. Don’t let your aging worry you at night Visit the beauty shop of Whitaker and White. “Tommy” McComb an aviator will be, He’ll make his fame o’er land, o’er sea. He’ll write his name in clouds so high His plane like his fame will soar towards the sky. We surely think Bessie will marry Lamar, But her goal will be a grand opera star. When you hear her voice ring You’ll know then that Bessie really can sing. You’ll stop in traversing the large Hall of Fame, To read on a statue a sculptor’s great name His name, Nelson Waters will stand out in gold His future now glorious has long since been told. I put the little cards back into the basket to take to my friends. I rubbed my eyes and looked at the magic cards again, but they were all gone. In their place was only the arbutus. J , have fallen asleep and was only dreaming - , but here is wishing you the best of luck always, classmates. May the good fortunes of the little fairly come true.

Chorus Oh, Morrison, our High School dear Our High School best sing we — In Warwick County there’s the place We always love to be — There with standards of the highest We’ll work with all our might And in praise of maroon and gold Shall her students all unite.

D. Crigler J. R. More - Wilson Ellis Raymond Beer Edna Rock - Athletic Director Principal Captain Football Captain Baseball T re usurer 38 J. D. CRIGLER Athletic Director 39 FRANK LAMBERT Frank, one of the few Freshman out for the team, was fired with the ambition to be one of Morrison’s great quarterbacks. He had a good start at the position, though it was a little diffi- cult for him to get the signals to run smooth. Although he did not have enough experience to run the team this year, Frank is expected to show his ability as a football player next year. CHARLES BARCLAY Ch arles had that “never say die” expression on his face at the opening of the season. This makes his second year out. He has not yet suc- ceeded in winning a place on the team, although he is a good substitute. We are expecting him to fill a position next year. BRADLEY ELLIS End This makes Bradley’s second year on the team. He played two positions, quarter-back and end, filling both exceptionally well. Being a very light man and swift on foot, he managed to get through small holes in the line. This netted many touch- downs and a great number of first downs for our team. We have great expectations of Bradley next year. PETE BERGH Left Tackle Pete is just like a case of T.N.T. tearing up the line to get the man with the ball. Try to stop him. Pete’s ability to mess up plays for the opponent is surprising because he is so light. Just watch left tackle next fall and you will see Pete doing his stuff. VERNAL STOCKMAN Guard Stockman was considered a green man when the season opened, as it was his first year on the t(am. But he was heavy and powei ful, and proved his value in the line in all the games. Just make him a little mad, and nothing could get by him. Stockman has two more years to serve at Morri- son and we are looking to him to follow his brother ' s footsteps and make himself known. MARSHALL WEADE Left Half Marshall, better known as “Frog” to many of his friends, has served two years on the team, and is captain-elect for next year. Very seldom do you ever see on a high school team a better broken field runner than Marshall. He runs so erratically and fast that only a quick thinking op- ponent can dope out his plays. His work with the team has proved very valuable, and we are looking forward to great things out of “Frog” next year. MALCOLM WRIGHT Tackle “Sally”, following in his brother’s footsteps, fought his way into the varsity this year and re- mained there by being able to play a head up game in line. His ability to smear the opponents plays, makes him a marked man on the team. Coach is looking forward to a bigger and better team with “Sally’s” playing. 40 RAYMOND BEER Left End The “Count of York”, held down left end like an anchor for the second year. Although he was the lightest man on the team, not another man had as much fight in him as Charley had in the games. Only once in a while did a ball get around his end. His team mates are looking for Ray- mond back next year to show them some fine style in playing. WILSON ELLIS Quarter-back Wilson was our Captain ; and what a Captain he was. There are very few schools that can boast of a better leader. He always seemed to know just what play to pull off and how it should be played to get the most effective and successful results. When there was a chance for a long end run, there was no better man on the team. Wilson could wing his way around end with such ease that he became known to his opponents as “Smo- key " . His unusual ability to punt and pass the pigskin made him an outstanding figure in many games. This is Wilson’s last year, and M.H.S. is losing one of the best athletes she has ever had. SAMUEL ROBERTSON Inexperience is all that kept “Sam” from hav- ing a berth on the team this year. With ex- perience he gained last fall, we are sure “Sam” will give someone a great deal of opposition next year for a place on the team. STUART GOALDER Known as “Goldie Locks” to members of the team, Stuart kept us in a laughing mood most of the time with his funny raging and actions. He did better than some of those on the varsity. Breaking his arm kept him from getting into some of the games. RICHARD SEWARD Full-back “Mudduck” is a powerful man of old Morrison backs. It has been proved without question that it has been many a day since Morrison had such a full-back. Any time a gain is needed, just call “Mudduck” off any place in the line, and the gain will be made. LAUREN YODER Left Guard Lauren is the heaviest man on the team. In the early part of the season he appeared to be a little green in regard to the pigskin, but later on he learned to use his weight to every advantage. This is Lauren’s last year on the gridiron and he will be greatly missed in the line-up next fall. JOSEPH ROWE Right Half Joe is a real fighter. He has spent two years on the varsity and we wish we could have him for another year. With good head work coupled with speed, Joe could be depended on to make gains and bring down a man. Where ever the ball was, Joe was right there, ready to stop the man if the line failed. We regret that he leaves this year and we expect to hear big things from him in college games later. C. R. LEE Center Though rather small to be a center, Lee has made larger man than himself feel like a giant was against them. Lee had the ability to break through the line and get the ball carrier. No matter how hard the game was, he had some foolishness to make everyone feel better. We are sorry to say that Lee is leaving us in June. We feel that if we had more rough and ready boys like him we could have a better team. 41 Football Team Back Row Left to right — J. D. Crigler, Coach; R. Beer, A. Bergh, W. Ellis, V. Stockman, and C.

With a few letter men back at the first call, J. D. Crigler, former William and Mai y star, started his task to make a smooth running- machine out ot pieces that did not fit in place. With the three weeks of hard training the team looked very good. On September 28th, we opened the season with Achilles. Captain Ellis sank his toe in the “ole pigskin”, and we off in a rush, running up 14 points in five minutes. Then something went wrong in the machine, and we only made 13 more points the lest of the game. Seward scored the first touchdown, and W. Ellis kicked for extra point. Morrison kicked again to the Gloucester boys and held them for downs. The ball went over to the “Fighting Farmers”, a line buck followed, then an end run by B. Ellis net- ted another touchdown, Seward making extra point. In the last quarter Weade and W. Ellis netted another touchdown, Seward making extra point. In the last quarter Weade and W. Ellis turned the fan on with a little fight and scored some more points. Seward crushed the line of the Gloucester boys for the last touchdown. The next game was with Blackstone. This was the first game played at home. Blackstone scored in the last part of the game, which was hard fought all the way through, the final score was 6 to 0, in favor of Blackstone. The following game was with Suffolk, though a much larger school than ours, we gave them a good fight. We received the ball, carried it well down the field to the fifteen yard line. Captain Ellis fumbled, only for Suffolk to recover it. Not able to make the required yardage, the ball was returned to the “Farmers”. Again we went within easy scoring distance and the half ended. We held them for downs after the kick off of the opening of the second half. Things went good with a few passes, end l ' uns, and line bucks of both boys slipped the pigskin across for the only touchdown with extra point failing. The score turned out to be 6 to 0 in favor of Suffolk. The next game at home was with Boykins. In this game we ran up the highest score of the year 49 to 0. Every boy out for football was given a chance in this game. The following week we were to meet an old friend of the gridiron, Oceano. Never had we defeated this team in football. The game opened with the “Farmers” kicking to the Oceano boys. With the ends down under the ball, they did not get very far. Another play proved very costly to the Oceano boys, a blocked kick with Morrison recovering the ball on the 10 yard line. W. Ellis carried the ball over for the only touchdown of the game, and failed to make extra point. From then till late in the third quarter, punts and line plays were exchanged in mid-field. Morrison fumbled twice placing them on the 15 yard line. A fake kick was called by the quarter- back. Weade, taking the ball on the play, made a splendid broken field run which netted fifty yards. The team played good football, making 14 downs to Oceano’s 3. Our next game was with Chester. The fast team of Chester gave the Morrison lads a real game. The line charging was hard on both sides. Seward scored in the quarter, tearing the line up like a plow he went over. W. Ellis kicked extra point making the score 7 to 0. In the third quarter the Chester boys made a rush which the “banners” could not stop; a touchdown was made, but the extra point failed, giving Morrison the game 7 to 6. Fredericksburg was the next game on the schedule. Morrison was defeated by the score of 25 to 0. Captain Ellis was out of the game on account of a severe cold, the first time in four years of service at Morrison High School. The last game of the season was with Ashland. We played the game in snow. Morrison received, carrying the ball for about 8 yards. Morrison fumbled. Ashland recovered. On their first play Ashland fumbled, and Morrison recovered. On we went for a touchdown and extra point. In the second quarter, the Ashland boys made a touchdown, making the score 7 to 6 in our favor. In the last quarter Morrison got within easy distance of scoring, about 12 yards. They made the downs, placing it on the 2 yard line. It took four downs to score. Final score 13 to 6 in favor of M. H. S. In December the annual football banquet was held in the cafeteria. Joseph Rowe, as toastmaster, was in charge. Between courses interesting talks were made by the visitors and various members of the team. Rev. A. J. Renforth, made an interesting and helpful talk; after which the football letters were awarded by Coach Crigler. 43 Baseball Wilson Ellis Raymond Beer - Regie Mills - Frank Lambert Bradley Ellis Sherwood Hornsby William Snyder Vernell Stockman Charles Lee Malcolm Wright - Catcher Pitcher Pitcher First Base Second Base Third Base Short Stop Right Field Center Field Left Field Substitutes Elliott Davis, Samuel Robertson, Infield; Joe Longacher, Stuart Goalder.

With interested membership and efficient leaders, the league is keeping in touch with the Co-operative Educational Association and has ranked as a banner league for the past eight years. Each year the league contributes generously to many school activities. It pays 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, is sponsoring the band, having purchased the two bass horns costing $ 500 . 00 . The League through its interest, loyalty, and generosity, are promoting a strong feeling of sympathy and co-operation between parents and teachers. The following are officers of the League: President - Vice-President Secretary Treasurer - Mrs. E. P. Warren Mrs. E. B. White, Jr. Mrs. Bob Dunn Mrs. W. H.
