MARY WATKINS AYLER “Mary Wat’’ “The heart to conceive, the understanding to direct, or the hand to execute.” A vacancy will be left at Morrison that will be hard to fill when Mary Wat receives her sheep- skin. She is unusually good in sports. Along with her popularity she has a winning disposi- tion. Here’s wishing you as much luck in the outside world as you have had at M. H. S. CHARLOTTE ELIZABETH BISHOP “Very quiet and unassuming’’. Charlotte’s friendly smile and mild ways have won Tier a host of friends. She is a good sport, always ready and willing to help do what she can. She also has done well in her subjects while with us. We feel assured that her friendly dis- position and sturdy mind will help her to go thru life successfully. GRACE CLEMENTINE BURLESON “Gracie” “A tender heart, a will inflexible”. Grace is one of the most popular girls in the high school. She takes life as it comes and doesn’t worry about the future. She has all the qualities of an ideal girl — understanding, generos- ity, sympathy, sincerity and humor. 13 CAROLYN ALLEN DAVIS “Tee-Tah’’ A good sport, a true friend, Tee-Tah is al- ways full of mischief and a good pal. These qualities and many others have won for Carolyn an enviable place in the hearts of the Class of ’32. We wish you only the best of luck, Tee-Tah. DOROTHY DIFFENDERFER “Dodo’ ' “To speak kindly of each other is well. To think kindly is better, But to act kindly is best of all”. She is willing to help all who ask her and always accompanies her help with a friendly smile. We are expecting Dorothy to be a great Latin teacher some day, and would like to have her come back and teach in her old Alma Mater. 03 JOHN GARY FLETCHER “Jack” “Friendship is constant in all things” Here we have one of Morrison’s brightest students. Jack came to Morrison in ’29, left for a year in Yorktown, and came back to us in ’31. Although Jack is a little mischievous at times he can settle down and work when he wishes. His outstanding quality — friendliness — will be an asset to him all thru life. 14 CLAYTON RUSSEL GIRTON “It is a great plague to be too handsome a man”. Here he is — the most handsome Senior. In spite of his fun loving and mischievous nature, you couldn’t have a truer friend than Clayton. Popular, friendly, dependable and cheerful — all these and many more are not sufficient to describe Clayton’s character. He has been with us now for three and one-half years and has been a very active class member. The attitude Clayton takes toward his work is of the best. He is bound to succeed. 0 AILENE ELIZABETH GOALDER “Charms strike the sight, but merit wins the soul”. Good descretion was shown when Ailene was elected our typical senior. Beneath her dignity and poise she is lovable and sweet and a real pal. Ailene has skillfully filled many positions during her four years, and her cheerful cooperation will be greatly missed. Of her many talents, her vocal ability has r eceived the greatest praise and we predict a brilliant future for her. 0 LYNWOOD GREY GOENS “Whatever you dare, you may do”. Lynwood is quiet and dignified but he can express himself vehemently when he is especially interested. After being with us four years, he will naturally leave a vacancy in Morrison. Rumor has it that the Sophomore cl ' ass will parti- cularly miss him. Air SARAH MARGARET HAWKINS “Margie’’ “To know her is to love her’’. “Margie’s” winsome smile and sweet manners will win her many friends in her future life just as they have at Morrison High School. She will be successful as a nurse in her future because of her sweet and gentle disposition. Along with her good disposition, she has a very applicable mind. These are two wonderful assets in the making of a nurse. VERA LOIS HAUGHTON “I wish you all the joy that you can wish”. Lois is not only one of the popular seniors, but also one of the most attractive. Lois always has a smile for everyone and is always ready for all the fun she can find. She has been with us for four years and is a friend to everyone who needs one. EVA BLANCHE HOSTETTER “So strong, so mild, combining still, The tender heart and gentle will, To conscience and to duty true”. A sense of humor, yet reserved ; attractive yet studious ; a gift of song and a friendly smile for everyone — with such qualities we many de- pend on the success of our most dignified senior’s success in life. I FLORENCE MARTIN JACOBS “Flo” “Many daughters have done virtuously but thou excellest them all”. Just take a look at one of our brightest seniors. Ask Florence anything you want to know about History and she will recite the whole book for you. She has been a conscientious worker for four years and always has a kind word and sweet smile for every one. 0 ANNIE VIRGINIA KELLEY “To know here is to love her’ . What would we do without Annie? In all activities her name heads the list. She has her own opinions and is ready to stand up for them. She has a “happy-go-lucky” spirit and always accomplishes what she sets out to do. She is bound to succeed. 0 MARGARET ELEANOR KELLEY “A winning smile and a personality that is charming.” A bit of dignity, a bit of seriousness, and a lot of gayety — these qualities constitute our Margaret. Margaret is a good sport and a true friend. She is here, there, and everywhere, speak- ing a word of cheer and smiling at all. It is said that Margaret has a weakness for the Ap- prentices. We wish you luck with the “one’’. 17 GEORGE FRANK KLICK “Hammerhead” “We know what we are, but know not what we may be”. Listen O Ye People. George “Hammerhead” Klick, the brawny dutchman, is now going to give us an exhibition in mental gymnastics. George proves this ability in Commercial Arith- metic class by the rapid solution of a terrific example. George is also one of the most popular boys in the Senior Class. JULIUS BARTLETT LANKES “Who can direct when all pretend to know”. O yez ! O yes ! Banana is the great physician who knows more physics than Einstein, Finkle- stein, or what have you ! Everyone applauds as he works a complicated conglomeration of physics with lightning like rapidity. Julius has proved himself exceedingly brilliant in all things that he has undertaken and we feel assured that he will make good. MARGIE EDITH MILLS “Ed” “Her voice was ever soft, gentle and low. An excellent thing in woman”. Edith is leaving us in June after being with us for four years. During this time, her sweet and lovable ways have made for her many friends. We feel sure that her ability to make and keep friends will be one of her great assets through life. 18 THE 1932 DOROTHY LOUISE MITCHELL “Dot “The rising blushes, which her cheek o’er spread, Are opening roses in a lily bed”. Full of fun and sparkling with wit, “Dot” is popular at all gatherings where her jokes and mischief endear her to everyone. She is truly a charming, modest bit of snushine for she always seems to make things brighter where ever she goes. So here is luck to you, old pal, may you never lose your happiness and sunny smilte. SYDNEY MITCHELL “Mike” “Great oaks from little acorns grow”. “Mike” is a good sport and a true friend. He is one of our smallest members but can be heard over the whole school. “Mike” has a mis- chievous nature but does not carry it to extremes. He is popular with all and is bound to succeed. Even though he is a little loud, he can settle down when he wants to. He has proved this by the grades he gets on his subjects. OLIVE MARIE MORGAN “An ounce of wit is worth a pound of sorrow”. Olive, the wittiest girl in our class, has made many friends with her bright and cheerful ways. Her wit is appreciated by her classmates and she is always willing to help and to do it cheerfully. 23 JESSIE MAE NEWELL “They laugh that win”. Here’s to Jessie who is always smiling. We are indeed glJad to have a member like Jessie in our Senior Class. Although Jessie has only been with us for one year, we have all learned to like her for her quiet, friendly manner. 0 LESLIE RICHARD O’HARA, Jr. “Les” “Creeping like snail unwillingly to school!’’. Who dares to say that “Les” is the greatest evader ever to enter Morrison ? Remember he took three History courses at one time. He be- lieves in using discretion about when to work and when to play. GERTRUDE ELIZABETH PETERS “Boots” “The best of goods comes in small packages”. Although “Boots” is one of the smallest mem- bers of our class, her mentality is large. Her natural charm added to her friendliness makes her popular with everyone. She has proved to us that small packages contain the best of goods. We are sure, if “Boots” is as successful when she leaves our Alma Mater as when here, she will always be on top. 20 THE 1932 r - SAMUEL ROBERTSON “Sam” “He that hath knowledge spareth his words”. Sam, quiet and peaceful, is a great leader. He has proved this while at Morrison, being elected president of his class each year he has been with us. Not only is he a great leader but he is also a great scholar who has had his name on the Honor Roll list quite a few times. We would like to have more students like “Sam” with us. When he leaves us in June, one of the best students ever at Morrison Hi will have gone. 03 EVELYN FRANCIS ROGERS “Eve” “A charm attends her everywhere”. Everybody loves an attractive girl — that’s why they like Evelyn so. You can’t blame them either when you know “Eve” with her winning ways. Evelyn has been with us straight thru the four years of struggle for our education, and yet there can be found nothing against her. We hate to lose you, Evelyn, but the best of friends must part. 03 KATHERINE EVANS SIBLEY “Kitty” “Let us have music, my feet stand not still”. “Kitty” is very popular, a dandy sport, a good student, and a marvelous dancer. “Kitty” is another one of the stars of the Morrison basket- ball team. When she is present, we never fear defeat because her high spirits and determination to win are difficult to overcome. Good Luck, “Kitty”, your classmates expect great things of you. EARL ALEXANDER SMOOT, Jr. “Smoots’ With a pleasant smile and a cheery word to all, “Smoots” has made friends with everyone in school. Even though “Smoots” is the “most in love”, he is a fine sport, especially as an ath- lete. He will be greatlly missed by all his class- mates. When he leaves dear old Morrison, may he keep on “catching” as he did on the team. MILDRED FRANCES SMOOT “Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control). These three alone lead life to sovereign power”. Mildred is what we should all like to be — a fine student, a cheerful) associate, and a generous, loyal friend. It would be impossible for us to exaggerate her good qualities. She is indeed the ideal student, gracious, and sweet. MARJORIE HELEN STARK “Marjie” “She hath Atalanta’s better part”. “Marjie” is one of our sports, in fact, she is one of the best in the class ; always ready and willing to participate in anything that arises. In athletics “Marjie” ranks among the first, and we regret that she has to Leave us in June. May our little athlete and sport make good. 22 THE 1932 GEORGE CLARK SWAN “Dee” “A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance” We are proud to claim George as our class- mate. Nothing ever worries her for her cheerful and carefree disposition is always bubbling over with merriment and wit. “Dee” is a good sport and a loyal friend. We wi 1 miss her in person but never in memory, for she will live with us always. 0 GERALDINE J. SWAYNGIM “Jerry” Through her pleasing personality and excep- tional ability, “Jerry” has won for herself a place in the heart of every member of Morrison High School. We say, “‘Jerry’ is the first person who comes in when the world has gone out. One who to herself is true, therefore must be so to you The same today, the same tomorrow, whether in prosperity, adversity, or sorrow, go forward, old kid and don’t forget us”. 0 THEA TRIMIER WAINWRIGHT “Thca Honey” “The girls call him sweet”. Thca is one of the best athletes for his size Morrison High School has seen in many a day. Although he is too small for football, he shows up well in baseball and basketballi. He is also popular with the opposite sex. Ask a certain one of the Junior homerooms. We have all en- joyed having Thea with us during his High School career and are sorry that he has to leave us in June. 23 THE 1932 ROSEBUD WARE “Buddie” “Everything is as you take it.” Heartbreaker, whow ! Nevertheless we’ll for- give “Buddie” for this very bad fault because she is one of our most charming seniors. Her unique ability to adapt herself in all trying condi- tions has proved to us that she is able to “stand on her own”. When you mention good times, you don’t have to look but once before you see a certain senior waiting for that good time. “Bud- die” laughs and the world laughs with her. © WILLIAM FUQUA WHITE “Billy” “Those who smile are smiled upon”. “Billy” has been with us two years and is one of our most studious boys. It doesn’t take long for “Billy” to make friends and for others to remember him. He is one of our students from York County and we willl all miss his cheerful smile and friendly word when he leaves Morrison. S3 CHARLES LAFAYETTE WHITE “Pus” “All tongues speak of him, and the bleared sights, Are spectacled to see him.” “Pus” came to us last year after two years of experience at Yorktown Hi and what a hit he made. He was elected the best dancer and also the most popular boy of the class. “Puss” has been of much hellp to us in football and baseball. His winning ways have won for him a place in the hearts of all who know him. 24 THE 1932 T ' MARY VIRGINIA YODER “Not too sober — not too gay, But a good true girl in everyway.” A quiet dignity, a sunny disposition and :i real comrade are three characteristics which we all admire in Mary. She looks on the bright side of everything, and is ever ready to help some one else. Mary is a good student and a friend to everyone. 25 THE 1932 Class Prophecy For several months I had been trying to get an inspiration for a prophecy of the class of ’32, and I had come to the conclusion that unless some means were found by which I could remove the dark veil that intervenes between now and the future, a class prophecy would never exist as far as I was concerned. My lack of success in penetrating the future began to worry me exceed- ingly. Imagine my joy when one day I picked up a newspaper and saw in one corner a small notice to the effect that Madame Zoura, the Wonderful For- tune Teller, was located in Newport News. This greatly encouraged me and I determined to seek her and implore her assistance in this large task which I had to perform. The following day I found myself in her presence seated at a table on which a large beautiful crystal had been placed. The crystal suddenly glowed brilliantly and then died down and a wonderful scene began to take place. It is a scene in Goens-Klick Department Store in the dress department. Two pretty girls are modeling evening gowns. These girls I recognize as Rosebud Ware and Mildred Smoot and the one for whom they are modeling — none other than the famous singer, Ailene Goalder. The partners, George and Lynwood, recognizing Miss Goalder, come forward to meet her. But this scene suddenly fades and another scene of a dark, deep and savage jungle appears. What is this I see ? The Martin-White Archaelogical Expedition with which Mitchell-Lankes, world famous chemists are associated in search of the famous Ophar Mines of Solomon. Three cheers for the great explorers, Billy and Jerry! We never thought you’d come to this. Again the crystal clears disclosing a huge stadium. This is the 1940 Olympics. What is the roar we hear? The acclamation of the audience ap- plauding the high jump record breaker, Marjory Stark; the running record breaker, Clayton Girton; the potato race breaker, Dorothy Diffenderfer. Another scene appears — one of intense activity; a great industrial center: huge factories belching smoke. To whom can be attributed this great activity? I see their names a foot high, Mitchell, Morgan and Newell, Inc., makers of the famous M. M. N. Hot Dogs. We salute your success. Again the crystal shows a stadium. This time in the Polo Grounds, New York. The occasion is the World Series, the Athletics versus the New York Giants. The battery for the Athletics is Wainwright and Smoot. See what our good ole Morrison cooperation leads to. As Thea comes from the dugout a hail from the grand stand greets him. Look who’s here! Leslie O’Hara and the former Florence Jacobs on their way back from Niagara Falls to watch ole Morrison’s pride win the Series. Another lusty shout — “Peanuts, popcorn, cold drinks!” It’s no other than Jack Fletcher, another man who’s made Morrison famous, the genial popcorn and peanut concessioner of the Polo Grounds. 26 THE 1932 Once more the scene has made a decided change. Now is seen a place dedicated to the relief of human misery, Johns Hopkins Hospital. A patient comes in and the superintendent, who is none other than Geraldine Swayngim, is sent for. “This patient’s trouble is improper food”, says the superintendent and sends for the dietician. In walks Annie Kelley, a very cheerful one, as all dieticians should be. “This patient needs two nurses”, declares the dietician, “and the very best we have, so send for Eva Hostetter and Grace Burleson”. There we are — four Morrison High girls doing their part for humanity. Again the scene changes. The sumptious and well appointed law office of Davis and Deal comes into view. Mr. Davis is dictating matters in a famous breach of promise suit to his secretary, Edith Mills, while the other partner Walter Deal gets the evidence. Breach of promise suit? This is interesting! Can it be any of our old friends? Let us listen for the names. It is Charles White whom little Margaret Hawkins is suing for breach of promise. Once more the alumni of Morrison are in the public eye. Comes another scene. The interior of the famous Beauty Shoppe ap- pears. Do my eyes deceive me? If it isn’t Sam Robertson, President of the Wall Street Bank, getting his nails manicured. The door opens and Gertrude Peters and Lois Haughton rush forward to meet George Swan, now a famous business woman and financier. Look out Wall Street! Here comes Morrison. Another scene begins to take place. Where is it? It looks familiar. Why it’s old Morrison High. What’s the excitement? An aeroplane has just landed. Carolyn Davis, Evelyn Rogers, and Captain Charles Davis are climb- ing out. They must have come back to get another glimpse of “ole” Morrison. All the teachers have come out to meet them. Katherine Sibley, the new Ath- letic Director. She’s a great success by the way. Mary Yoder, the Latin teacher; Charlotte Bishop, the shorthand teacher; and Margaret Kelley, the History teacher are among the graduates of ’32, who are keeping up their good work at dear old Morrison. Then the light in the crystal suddenly went out, and I dropped my head on the table before me and thought o fthe lines that Longfellow used to ex- press so well the end of a hard day’s work. “And the night shall be filled with music, And the cares that infest the day, Shall fold their tents like the Arabs, And silently steal away”. At last, this great task which had fallen upon my shoulders had been finished, the lights in the room were turned on, and I left feeling that I was a wiser girl. Mary Watkins Ayler, ’32. . 27 Creed As we, the class of ’32 look down the vista of years, we see that we have passed another milestone in life. Like Columbus, we are launching out upon a great and mysterious ocean. But before Time writes the “Finis” to our High School career, we pause once more, to reflect upon the lofty principles and ideals which have been our constant guide through our happy days at school. First and Supremely, we believe in God our Creator and Pre- server. We believe in “Old Glory” our United States of America, and consider it a great privilege of being a part of the greatest Republic in the world. We shall not prove ungrateful for the liberty gained by our forefathers. Our highest aims and ambitions are for the Old Dominion State, Virginia, the mother of States. Then, surely we have the best of schools. Morrison High is very dear to our hearts. We extend our compliments to the School Board and Patrons who have so zealously striven to make Morrison the school that it is. We have the greatest confidence in our able principal, Mr. Mort, who has given his ceaseless efforts in behalf of our school. No less do we confide in our dear home room teacher, Mrs. Geddy, whose noble efforts in making our high school career a success will long be remembered by each of us. The entire faculty deserves our heartiest appreciation for what they have so willingly done for our class. We believe in our annual, the “Warwick” which will be a con- stant reminder of our school days. We believe in the wholesome athletics, Literary Societies, Clubs, and other activities, and feel that they are an important factor in the advancement of our education. We hold high regard for each of our fellow students of Morrison, and know that they too are preparing for a superior type of citizen- ship. We believe in each other, our own Senior Class, that we are filling a place in the changing world of 1932 that would be blank with- out us. We believe that each of our members will continue after graduation as they have in the past four years to have faith in our motto — “With the ropes of the past we will ring the bells of the future”. Eva Hostetter ’32. Class History H§M About the middle of September the Pied Piper sounded his call and we “rats” came. Like worms crawling to the maw of the early bird we came — and the early bird was a Sophomore ready to welcome us to dear ole Morrison Hi. “!!!?? ?XX!! Freshman”. Don’t you know any better than that? Why! Haven’t you seen people killed for less than that?!! How we trembled and shook as we tried to find our way to classes. Getting in the wrong class rooms, we trembled and shook some more. After several days of wondering what was coming next, there occurred “Rat Day”. What happened during the hours of the day we thought was a crime. Painted up like clowns we marched around school all day, laughed at by upper classmen and teachers. Then with our hair tied up like pig-tails on top of our heads, we were made more hideous looking than ever. We tied shoes and ran through lines of upper classmen until we were black and blue. It wasn’t until our friend Mr. Mort made them leave us alone, that “Rat Day” ended. The next momentous events were the glorious football and baseball games, when we forgot we were rats and rooted for our team as insanely as upper classmen. Somehow we drifted along until it was time for the first semester exams. How we studied; so at last commencement night came and we found ourselves Sophomores. How eagerly we looked forward to being upper classmen and how little we enjoyed it! It was not nearly as much fun being Sophomores as “rats”. Our Sophomore year passed quickly. Again commencement came and we were Juniors without knowing how it happened. The Junior year is the year of peace and work, and ours was no exception to the rules. Friendships of the first two years deepened into real affection. We were busy with our lessons and working hard to make our Junior year a success. We strived hard and made enough money to entertain the Seniors with a banquet. Finally the last day of the session came and went — Seniors at last. We could hardly realize it. The pain and indignities we had to suffer as rats now became but a sweet memory to us all. The students gone before us had paved the way to real happness for the Seniors of ’32. We are about to go forth to wrest a living in the world. At this time we cannot but be proud of our class, which we all love as a whole. The things which have made our class stand out is its unity, its class spirit and its school spirit, all of which became a part of us when we were merely “rats” and has been strengthened all through the four years of our high school life. A smile for memories of our meeting; a rush of gladness to the heart for our stay; a tear in the eye, and a catch in the throat for our parting; and a bright eyed longing for the hope of future meetings. Hail to the passing of ’32. Rosebud Ware, ’32. 29 Last Will and Testament of Senior Class, " 32 H§N When in the course of human events it becomes incumbent on the Senior Class of ’32 to leave our dear old Alma Mater, after four years of mental wrestling with problems our dear teachers have set before us, we find, as we must keep up traditions, that we are able to dispense with suitable gifts to members ot the faculty and members of the struggling classes behind us. First, to Mr. Mort, leave our sincere appreciation for his aid in all undertaking of the class. Second, to Miss Rock, we bequeath a shotgun to keep wandering students out of the office. Third, to Mrs. Geddy, our thanks for her interest in each member of the Senior Class. Fourth, to the succeeding classes, we will the following: Mary Wat.

(Harr So live, that when thy summons comes to join the innumerable caravan, which moves to that mysterious realm where each shall take his chamber in the silent halls of Death, thou go not like the quarry slave at night, scourged to his dungeon, but sustained and soothed by an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave like one who wraps the drapery of his couch about him and lies down to pleasant dreams. — William Cullen Bryant. 45 THE 19 32 Athletic Board of Control J. D. Crigler Boys’ Athletic Director J. R. Mort Principal Vernell Stockman Captain Football Bradley Ellis Captain Baseball Frances Williamson - - - Girls’ Athletic Director Marjorie Stark - Captain Girls’ Basketball Edna Rock T reasurer MALCOLM “SALLY” WRIGHT— End “Sally”, having: a girl’s name doesn’t mean he is anything like a girl when it comes to football. That “Sally” is good is needless to say ; he is more than good. Fleet of foot and always under punts, his favorite stunt is to down opponents in their tracks. Being able to stop plays before they got started made him a marked man on the Morrison team. “Sally” has one more year to play for the Maroon and Gold. We expect greater things from him next year. Go to it “Sal”. STUART “SUSIE” GOALDER— Full Back “Susie” is the steadiest ground gainer in the Morrison backfield. He seems to be made up of the right amount of ingredients that go toward making a football man. He always hits the line hard and time after time “Susie” has carried the pigskin for gains where others had failed. On defense he backs up the line, and there also his speed, endurance and ability to size up plays quickly made him a valuable man. Two years of experience has made “Susie” a great player and he will be called upon to help the Gold and Maroon win next year. BRADLEY “JELLYBEAN” ELLIS— Half Back “Jellybean” was the star half back of M. H. S. “Jelly” is one of the best backs Morrison has ever produced. He is a true triple threat man. His bullet like passes and long punts have brought us out of many a hole. When a gain is needed, just give the ball to “Jelly”, and it is made. Bradley’s ability to size up plays and sure tackling has kept our opponents from making a number of touchdowns. “Jelly- bean” has one more year at Morrison and you can depend upon him to add color to these games. CHARLES “PUS” WHITE— Right Guard In “Pus” we find a lineman of ability. This was Charles first year on the varsity and he showed the making of a great guard. The opposing line found it difficult to get past “Pus”, and to stop him from messing up their advances. We regret to lose “Pus” by graduation for he will be greatly missed on the team. SYDNEY MITCHELL— Manager ROBERT “SKEE” BARCLAY— Left Guard “Skee” is not a spectacular player but he is steady and dependable. This was “Skee’s” second year out for the team. He failed to make the team last year because of sickness. He took to his position as guard like a duck to water. Robert has two more years to play football and a little more Criglerism will msjL-o si err on t nlnvor nut nf him 48 EARL SMOOT— Half Back Smoot the smallest man in the Maroon and GoDd backfield has as much grit as the biggest lines., man. Smoot never was a star, but in a pinch he was all there. Earl showed his ability as a quarterback a number of times. His ability to size up plays and sure tackling made his defense work indispensible. We lost Smoot by graduation and his steady playing will! be missed by the Maroon and Gold. STANLEY “STONEY” HICKS— Center “Stoney”. the big blonde terror played his second season for the “fighting farmers”. His previous experienced proved a great asset to the team. “Stoney” is one of the hardest fighters in the line. Few gains were made thru center for this reason. “Stoney” is noted for his perfect passes and keeping his I man out. When it comes to smashing interference and spoiling plays “Stoney” is a whiz. “Stoney” has two more years at Morrison and you will hear big things from him. Here ' s luck to “Stoney”. VERNELL “ABNER” STOCKMAN— Right Tackle Captain Stockman was the main cog in the forward wall! of the Maroon and Gold. “Abner” has proven his metal time and again. The fact that he was the heaviest man on the team accounted for much ground gaining on his side of the line. When it came to breal ing thru and smearing plays behind the line of scrimmage he was all there. Everyone except his opponents are glad that Stockman has one more year to play on the team. RILEY “LAWYER” NEWELL— Guard In “Lawyer” we have a type of player that would be an asset to any team. He is short, fast and hard as nails, a hard man to spill) on defense and full of fight on offense. “Lawyer” receiving his chance to present his case in the Blackstone game due to an injury to White. How he presented it? Ask Blackstone. FRANK LAMBERT— Quarterback Frank is one of the most clear headed quarterbacks that has ever donned the pig skin for the “Fighting Farmers”. He showed excellent ability in picking the weak spots of the opposing teams and the timely tossing of forward passes. Along with his ability to run the team he was an outstanding ball carrier. We aid feel proud that Frank wil be back with us next year. JOE PARKER— Left Tackle Joe came to us green this year. He was the only Freshman to make the team, an d certainly did make his class show up well. What Joe lacked in experience, he made up in his fighting spirit and strength. Joe has three more years to play football and we expect great things from him. 49 Football Team Back Row Franklin Brown, Bartlett Ballentine, Malcolm Wright, Bradley Ellis, Joe Parker Third Row Mosco Richardson, Frank Lambert, Earl Smoot, George Dietrich, Second Row Harry Stinemeyer, Russell Dolan, Charles White, Robert Barclay, Riley Newell.

We assembled in the dressing room, Coach gave a little talk on good sportsmanship and what was expected of each man. Football practice was called for the first day of school. Lots of work had to be done and there was not much time in which to do it. During the first week we had the hottest weather of the year. This meant many grunts and groans on our new athletic field. After the first two weeks of charlie-horses and slight sprains, we journeyed to Newport News for a stiff practice before our first scheduled game. We proved that we were in condition and ready for Benedictine by the showing we made against Newport. “Captain of Morrison?” “Ready”. “Captain of Benedictine?” “Ready”. The whistle blew: Ellis sunk his toe into the pigskin. Thus started Morrison’s 1931 foot- ball season. We had battled to a 6-6 tie the previous year, so both teams were after the “bacon”. The first half was “nip and tuck”, neither team ever in scoring position. In the beginning of the second half Morrison was caught behind her own goal line. This gave Benedictine the 2 points necessary to win the game. Morrison could not score in the third quarter and the game looked rather hopeless for the “Farmers”. In the last quarter Benedictine, not satisfied with her narrow margin, tried to score by a pass much to her sorrow. The ever elert Ellis reached up and grabbed the Benedictine pass out of the would-be-receiver’s aims and race 75 yards for a touchdown as the game ended. The try for extra point failed and the final score was 6-2 with Morrison keep- ing the “bacon”. Next week we rec eived the small end of 13-0 score in the game with Franklin from across the river. This game showed us that there were lots of rough places to be ironed out. October 9th we journeyed to Richmond to meet the strong team, St. Christopher. This game showed what Warwick County Farmers could do. The little team from Morrison held the heavier “Saints” 0-0 for three quarters, but the superior weight finally wore down the Morrison defense and the game ended with the score 6-0 in favor of the “Saints’”. This was such a hard fought game that even if we did suffer defeat it did something to the team. It showed what could be done when we worked together. Next week we journeyed across the James River to battle with Suffolk. For the two preceeding years Suffolk had whipped Morrison 6-0. They felt sure of another victory. The game was a very exciting one, both teams in scoring positions a number of times but lacking that little extra bit of energy that was necessary to push the ball over. This game was as good as a victory for the Morrison lads for it was the first time the “Farmers” had ever held the mighty Suffolk team scoreless. After a week of hard practice, we left for Blackstone to register our second vic- tory of the season. The first four minutes of the game was a grand march starting at mid-field and ending over the goal line. One line buck after another with large gains by each of the backfield stars resulted in placing the ball in scoring position from which Goalder, our full-back, had no difficulty in scoring. The rest of the game was fought between the 20 yard lines. The game ended with the score 6-0. The next game was with Chester on our home field. Chester won the game by the score of 6-0. Morrison outplayed Chester thru the entire game making 20 first downs to Chester’s 3, only to lose the ball by fumbling twice inside the five yard line. Chester scored her touchdown by completing two forward passes and a couple of line plays. This game restored confidence in the “Farmers” for it showed we had improved considerably since last year at which time we suffered a defeat of 35-0. The game with Chester was followed by two weeks of hard practice preparing for our annual game with Oceano. Morrison and Oceano agreed to play a game for local charity and the Newport News Apprentice School loaned their lighted field for the game to be played at night. It was a new experience for both teams to play under flood- lights. As soon as the novelty wore off Morrison settled down to play football and carried away the “bacon” 25-0. Captain Stockman shifted from tackle to full-back, made repeated gains, and carried the ball over for the final touchdown of the season. The results for the season were even, three won, three lost, and one tied. Coach Crigler is looking forward to a successful ’32 season, because nine of his regulars will be back to carry on for M.
