This year the Orospolitau staff has chosen the
medium of television as the bookis theme.
As you go through your yearbook, We trust that
you will appreciate the time and effort the staff has
put forth to make the 1953 Orospolitan the biggest
and best yet.
This idea of a theme throughout the book is new
in our high school and we hope you like it.

job and calls for much co-operation from all members of her stahr.
The artist of the class must draw all of the sketches for the book.
One of the biggest jobs is putting out the best book with the least
cost. Mr. Burlev, our sponsor, has an important job in seeing

The prospects of the Moundsville 1952 football season didn't look too bright.
First year coach, jack LaBay, didn't have a lot of material from which to choose.
He had five returning lettermen, jack Slokan, Rich Clegg, Don Chambers, Tom
Hill. and Don Hess. Moundsville had a small and a very light team. They were
inexperienced and some of the iirst string hadn,t any previous experience.
They Won their first game over Newell 42-0. They then lost nine straight
games. Our second game was played at Triadelphia, Moundsville losing 39-0.
YVe played Magnolia at home on September 19, this game was played on even
terms until a couple of bad breaks lost the game for us. A Hfteen yard penalty
put them on our one yard line and from there they Went on to score. The other
touchdown came on an intercepted pass. Both were scored in the Hnal five
minutes of the game. The Trojans then traveled to Fairmont West Where a
strong Fairmont West Won 35-6.
On October 4, the Trojans traveled to Bellaire. The Big Reds wer unde-
feated. Our team were like midgets next to them. The Trojans played them on
nearly even terms the first half, the score was 28-14. The second half the Big
Beds second string was as heavy as their iirst string. They Went on to Win over
The Trojans next game Was against Wheeling. They beat us 59-O. On Octo-
ber 17, the Trojans traveled to Wellsburg Where the underrated Wellsburg team
beat us 39-O. October 25, the Trojans traveled to the Wheeling stadium to suffer
our 7th loss of the season at the hands of Warwood. On October 31, Mounds-
ville returned home only to be beaten again by the Maroons of Central Catholic
59-0. The last game of the season was played on November 7, against Union.

11 second period bulge, for a 36-27 half-time

by squeezing through to beat us 52-44. The game

stanza, but the Eagles pulled away to win. The
