James Leslie Harvey, A. B.
James L. Harvey, Superintendent of the Mt. Hope Schools,
received his A. B, degree from VVest Virginian Wesleyan College in
1919, Mr. Harvey came to Mount Hope in 1923 and during his two
years of supervision he has proven himself capable of leadership in
Mr. Harvey came to Mount Hope from Fayetteville High, where
he had been since his discharge from the U. S, Army, in which he had
won for himself the commission of captain.
Since Mr, Harvey came to Mount Hope he has greatly built
up the school and was partly responsible for getting the large
new building now under construction. Mount Hope owes Mr.
Harvey a great debt which can only be repaid by the students and
citizens of Mount Hope eo-operating with him in carrying out his
SL'PERIN'I'ENDEN'I' JAMES L, HARVEY
Noah Franklin Stump, B. Sc., M. A.
M1'. Stump received his B. Sc, from YVest Virginia University
and his M. A, from Yale University.
Mr. Stump came to Mount Hope in 1923, and since that time
he has proven himself of so much value to the school that we can-
not praise him enough in these few lines. Among the most im-
portant things that he has accomplished is keeping our school on
the first class list and accrediting it with the Southern Accrediting
Association. Mr. Stump was the originator of the Mount Hope
High School Orchestra, besides being one of the most competent in-
structors in the school.
lYe feel sure that We could ind no man equal to Mr, Stump and
We sincerely hope that he will be again on the faculty in the corn-

Do you remember that drowsy May afternoon, when the warm Spring sun-
shine came Howing in the Study Hall in golden floods on the second floor of old
M. H. H. S.? Remember? And when wc were trying to keep awake and show
a little interest in "Henderson and NTcPherson,s Chemistry," or some "goofy"
Biology question like, "VVhat is the difference between an amobea and a tadpole? 'i
Or, "On which end should a Hshing worm wear a hat?" And how you finally
gave up and sleepily resigned yourself to listening to the monotonous buzzing
of a big burly fly that was penned in one of the window sills? And to drowsily
giving the bust of james W'hitcomb Riley the once over and wondering vaguely
if he was ever in a similar situationg and how, after what seemed an aeon at the
very least, your three o'clock study period Hnally came to a sleepy end? And
do you remember how the yard looked on that morning in early November when
the air was steel-blue with the smoke of burning woodlands nearby, and their
pungent aroma gave true harbinger of autumn? Or the January morning when
a newly fallen snow made of the yard a frozen paradise of soft white beauty, and
the bitter wind sweeping across the streets and yards, which turned your breath
to frosted vapor and quickened your steps? To reach the welcome warmth of
the schoolhouse, or the slushy days when you gazed at each new pair of galoshes
with fresh amazement, wondering how in the dickens they could ever keep them
on, let alone walk in them? And do you remember that hysterical day when the
football demons of HOld Gold and Blue" met Oak Hill and made gridiron history
by tying the bewildered "Big Red and Black" to the soul-satisfying tune of O-0,
or the equally hysterical night in the Gym when, before a crowd that liowled its
frenzied approval, Mount Hope's basket ball five played boisterous host to East
Bank's highly tauted team, and knocked them for a row of non-renllable bucketsg
and also the night "Old Gold and Blue" lost a double-header to the fast Montgomery
quintette? And do you remember the few dances and parties given at the Armory,
and at the girls' homes? And do you remember how you felt when a good-looking
girl asked you to dance for the first time? And oh! do you remember the spring
picnics, the hay rides, and the wienie roasts? Also, do you remember what a
pathetically bewildered F reshie you were when you Hrst registered in M. H. H. S.
four years ago? And shall you ever forget the splendid friendships, the glorious
times, the treasured scenes, that must for always make your High School days at
Mount Hope High a precious thing of golden dreams?

Senior Class History
In September, 1921, there entered into the study hall of the Mount Hope
High School the greenest bunch of Freshmen that history has record of. In fact,
they were green to the extent that the people living nearby were forced to keep
their cattle under lock and key for several days to save the said students from
being devoured for green foliage late in appearing. But, did you ever think that
when a thing of life is green, it is not dead or dormant, but growing? So it was
with the present class of '25, VVe started over against the wall of the assembly
hall, and from that time we have never as yet changed, but we are still green,
The class started the year with about forty enrolled. A few days after school
routine had begun our class ofhcer, Miss Charlotte E, Kehm, was chosen. Grady
Toney was elected President of the class, and led it through one of its most suc-
The next September we started out with a surplus amount of vim and vigor
over the idea of being Sophs, However, the school adopted the new plan known
as the six-three-three plan, throwing us again the lower class in high school, and
again having to take the knocks of the Seniors, which were given to us for hark
lessons assigned to them by the faculty. This year we had the pleasure of being
under the guidance of Miss Lucy Baker, who was appointed Class Officer. Edward
Roberts was elected to the executive position of President. During this year we
were very fortunate in having some of the Freshmen of Glen jean in our midst,
This was a great addition to the class, although we had lost a great many faces
familiar in our classrooms.
In nineteen hundred and twenty-three we were juniors. Although few in num-
ber compared to our previous strength, we all know the old saying that 'fprecious
gems come in small packages. " Miss Dorothy Mann was elected as Class Sponsor,
and in the position of President we had a very capable man. Raymond E. Tissue
served in the above position so well that during this year there were more junior
activities than we had had in the earlier classes of school.
So, with the brief outline above of the history of the class, we can proceed with
the Senior year. This year we entered school with a roll of only twenty-three.
On account of the lack of a Normal course, some of our most valuable members
were forced to attend school at other places in order to get this work. As is true
of any class, we always lose a few at the end of the first couple of weeks. So by
the time of the ending of the first semester we boast of the number of seventeen.
At the beginning of the year we were very gratified to have our old Sponsor,
Miss Mann, again with us. Very soon after the term began, a meeting was called
and the following officers elected: Edward Roberts, President, Lysle George,
Vice President, Margaret Parker, Secretary, and Edgar Mitchell, Treasurer. At
a very early date the class assembled and decided to keep the Red Rose as the
class flower, and Maroon and Black as the class colors,
As with all Seniors, we had, of course, to buy our class jewelry, so a ring was
chosen, and on arriving, proved to be very satisfactory to all,
Of course, as soon as possible the class united in presenting the three-act play,
entitled, "Nothing But the Truth, " There seems to be a very good amount of
ability in the class, as members were supplied for the Senior plays of '23 and '24.
The play as a whole was a great success, and seemed to meet the approval of the
public in general.
The class furnished the athletic teams with a halfback and two ends in foot-
ball, and a center and two forwards in basket ball. All through the four years
we have had a very good showing in athletics, furnishing the first football team
of the school with several players.
So really, you see that, although having a stormy career, we have at last en-
tered the home stretch of our high school work. Are we going to stop here? No,
we are not, as I said in the beginning, we are Hgreen, but growing. "
EDWARD ROBERTS, Class Historian
Senior Class ,Prophecy
One night as I sat before the fire hearing the rain pattering on the roof and
wondering for how many more minutes I could follow the tragic utterances of
Hamlet, the melancholy Dane, without falling asleep, I suddenly beheld a startling
vision before me. The brightly lighted dance hall of the Mauretania was crowded
with men and women in evening dress. As my eyes grew accustomed to the
brightness, I began to distinguish faces. A woman richly dressed in a black
velvet robe trimmed in ermine and wearing a necklace of priceless rubies, looked
amazingly familiar. Could this be the Joy Givens who had attended the M. H,
H. S. in the class of '25? Upon closer scrutiny I recognized her beyond a doubt,
happening to notice on her finger, a ring of sardonyx and white gold, bearing the
letters of M. H. H. S. By her side stood a handsome Frenchman, whom she
afterwards introduced to me as her husband, Count Hamburg de Boloni, a great-
grandson of Napoleon Boneparte. As we stood chatting, joy asked whether
I knew that there were on board three other members of the class of 1925, Ted
Mitchell, U. S. Ambassador to the Isle of Pines, and his wife, Margaret Mitchell,
formerly Margaret Parker, as well as Rose Garrett and Mary Elliott. Rose
Garrett, after serving as a missionary in China for three years, had married an
Hawaiian musician, and was now on her way to meet him in Honolulu. Mary
Elliott, after a brief career as waitress in a Greek restaurant, had married a mil-
lionaire diamond merchant from South Africa, however, the union had proved
unhappy. The sensational divorce proceedings filled the newspapers' headlines
for weeks. To escape the unwelcome publicity attendant upon her divorce,
Mary was now traveling under an assumed name. Before the evening was over
I had the pleasure of talking to Ted and of seeing Margaret. The change in
Ted was striking. He was dressed in the latest fashion, and spoke in a manner
at once distinguished and quiet. After he had passed, Joy told me that Margaret
had devoted her life to reforming him, and from my glimpse of him, she had pretty
nearly succeeded. VVhile I was searching for a glimpse of the notorious Mary
Elliott, the scene changed and I found myself no longer on shipboard, but sud-
denly transported to a crowded tent.
I was very much astonished to find Lysle George, one of my old schoolmates,
who was now a noted evangelist holding a gospel meeting. I decided to listen
to my old classmate give his sermon before I would make myself known. After
listening to a very oratorical speech, I pushed myself to the front of the tent and
made myself known. After talking of old times back at M. H. H. S. for a few
moments, he told me there were some other members of the old class present at
the meeting. VVe started out in search of the members of the class, and to my
surprise, found them to be Zella Morton and Clyde Wriston, who had entered
upon the sea of matrimony, and he was employed as lumberjack on Little Coal
River. Also living in the same community was Kerens Moore, who was employed
by the N. 85 W. Railroad section gang. This was because of his great stature
and brute strength. To my left I heard a familiar voice discussing the market
condition of the price of cheese. Upon closer observationI found it to be another
member of the class, Edward Roberts, who, I learned, had started as a dairy-
man and had now entered the cheese industry, which was paying good dividends
at the present time. As we were leaving there was a terrible noise in a tent at
the right of the main tent and upon investigating the cause of the noise I found it
to be a nursery carefully managed by George Ballard, who was always eilicient
in this line of work while in high school.
While talking over old times with my schoolmates the scene changed to a
theatre in Washington. After seeing a very fine exhibition of toe dancing by a
Hgure which looked very familiar, I decided to look the toe dancer up, and upon
being ushered to her apartments, I found it to be Mertie Evans, who later told
me that she had been having a very successful career with the Ziegfield Follies.
After a brief discussion of old times, she invited me to attend a dinner to be
held in her honor. Upon arriving at the banquet hall I was surprised to Hnd
among the guests some more of my old classmates. Among those present were
Raymond Tissue, a model for Hart, Schaffner and Marx, who was trying to in-
terest President Coolidge and some members of his cabinet in buying their new
spring attire. Among some of the other persons present were Frances Carter,
who had had a brief career in the movies and was now married to the stately
George Clark 5 also Elsie Hensley, who was the Hrst woman Senator of West Vir-
ginia, and Dorothy Clark, who was taking a brief vacation from Byrn Mawr,
where she had been employed as Dean of Women. Last, but not least, was Ruby
Montgomery, who is president of a freak automobile novelty concern which is
doing a wild-fire business.
Suddenly I awoke with a start, and rubbing my eyes, looked wildly about
me. The wind was blowing down the chimney in fierce gusts. Could this vision
be only a dream?

Junior Class Histo ry
It was on a typical autumn day in September, 1923, that our class began its
noteworthy and rather remarkable career in M, H. H. S. Being exceedingly
unassuming and bashful CFD for Sophomores, we had much to learn. Therefore,
under the guidance of Miss Von Allmen, our Sponsor, and the supervision of the
faculty, we did our best, and at the end of the year we had earned a reputation
all our own.
The following fall found us in our old quarters and more, with all but a few of
our former classmates. W'e were very fortunate in again having Miss Von Allmen
as Sponsor. 'We elected J. B. Thompson, President, Marian Jasper, Vice Presi-
dent, and Margaret Jasper, Secretary-Treasurer, and thus settled down to Work
Having presented the school with its star athletes and intellectuals, We accept
all praise as our just due and feel subservient to none. Moreover, we expect
to live up to our high standards until we are graduates of M. H. H. S.
Louise SPESSARD, Class Historian
Some of the facts concerning the junior Class given in the form of uiVIOd61T1
American Poetry. "
Now, boys and girls, I'll give you a bit of information
After 1926 this will be an educated nation.
Honest, folks, this is no joke to be told and then let pass.
Vlfhy, there are thirty-three future citizens in our Junior Class.
Now, if you think xve're boasting, you just drop in, one and all,
And listen to a lecture given by the Hon. Hershel Lushbaugh,
Though he's just a sample oi the bright we have here.
So if you want to be educated, join the Senior Class next year,
In education, VVest Virginia ranks 'way on down the line,
lint if they'll Wait until next year, xve'll get in there on time.
ll'ith the instructors we have, alvvays giving advice,
We'll be marvelous citizens, though bragging isn't nice,
Such an intelligent and cultured junior Class have we.
Do you wonder that our fame shall be hailed from sea to sea?
Though when we have attained that fast approaching fame,
YVe'll remember you less fortunate ones and love you just the same.

Sophomore Class History
On September eighth, nineteen hundred twenty-four, the classrooms of Mount
Hope High School were crowded with the largest class that has ever entered its
Our class is made up of pupils from all over Wfcst Virginia and surrounding
states, representatives coming from Argenteum, Ky., Elkins, Winona, Macfarlan,
Lick Creek, Red Star, Glen Jean, Sun, Kilsyth, Turkey Knob, and MacDonald.
VVe met and elected the following officers: President, William Hansbargerg
Vice President, Elizabeth Heermansg Secretary and Treasurer, Leonard 'Wilsong
Class Sponsor, Miss Elsie K. Snider.
Aside from a good showing in scholastic ability, we were well represented in
the activities of the school, having six members on the football squad and Stu-
dent Manager of football, three on the basket ball squad, a majority in the Dramatic
Club, and a number in Alpha Omega.
We have been fortunate in losing only a very few of our number, and we have
every hope of being the largest class ever to have graduated from Mount Hope

The Peerless Literary Society has been organized in the Mount Hope High
School for Several years. This has been a very prosperous Organization, winning
the "Cup" three years in Succession. The year'S program rendered has shown
an improvement over last year.

The Excelsior Literary Society has been organized in the Mount Hope High
School for several years. This has been a fine society, but it did not show the
enthusiasm as did the Peerless, losing to them the cup for three years. The pro-
grams given in the Excelsior this year excelled those given by the Peerless.
The first Dramatic Club in the history of Mount Hope High School was or-
ganized in the early part of the year 1924-1925. Miss Elsie Snider, Instructor
of Public Speaking, is originator and sponsor.
The purpose of this organization is to create, maintain and extend throughout
the school and community a high standard of enthusiasm, interest, knowledge
and appreciation of things of high literary and
Miss SNIDER, Sponsor
The A-Z enjoys the distinction of being the first Girls' Club of the Mount
Hope High School, having been organized by a group of High School girls in 1922,
under the supervision of Mr. Lorenzer.
The aim of the club is to create, maintain, and extend throughout schools and
community a high standard of Christian character.
The meetings are held in the Ladies' Club Room of the Y. M. C. A. every
other Monday night.
Vliith the aid of our Sponsor, who has always taken a great interest in the
A-Z, our Work has been successful,
The A-Z was a little late in getting started this yeai, 1924-1925, but when it
did, it seemed as if it made up for lost time. They started out with only eight
of the old members left, all others having graduated last year,
They were very fortunate in securing Mrs. Ralph Bailey as their Sponsor.
As the girls have quite a large amount of pep, they needed a Sponsor who could
'fkeep 'em from raising the roof, 'V and Mrs. Bailey is excellent for that purpose,
It was not long before the new members increased in number and the old mem-
bers in Wisdom. fLet's hope so-anyhowj Wfith the co-operation of the old
and new members, We hope to go on with the Alpha Omega as successfuly as it
has been managed and carried on during the preceding years.

The Mount Hope Hi-Y Club is not an organization founded only a few months
ago, but is at the present ending its fourth successful year in the school. 'This
is not at all a local organization, as Hi-Y Clubs are found all over the United
States. Anything worth having always has for its goal sonte certain standard
or condition. The I-Ii-Y has for its goal the 'tCreation of Clean Living, Clean
Speech, Clean Scholarship, and Clean Athletics." I
The club was organized in 1921, at that time being among the Hrst clubs of
the state. lVith five charter members, the club started its career. VVilliam
Tissue was elected President, and before the year was over the school in general
was aware that there was such a club in existence and was wondering what the
fellows did before the club was organized.
The next year the club was under the direction of Andrew L. Jeter as Presi-
dent, and during the year the membership was increased greatly and one of the
most successful years of the club slipped by before the club had warmed up.
In 1923 Russell Patterson was elected to the executive position and presided
there in such a way that when the year ended, we realized that the club was here
to stay and that our high school without the club was like ham without eggs.
Entering into the year of 1924, Edward Roberts was elected President,
Raymond Tissue, Vice Presidentg Hursel Lushbaugh, Seeretaryg and George L.
Ballard, Treasurer. The year was begun with about twelve members, and in-
creased at one time to fifteen. In the early part of the season the club adopted a
program of work which has worked so far to such an extent that it is suggested
by the Boys' VVork Secretary of W'est Virginia that all clubs adopt this method.
In closing we wish to attribute our success as a club to the work and co-opera-
tion of Mr. H. S. Duncan, to whom we feel Mount Hope High School owes a
debt that cannot be paid by words, but by keeping the Hi-Y work going on more
successfully each year.

Along in the summer. before it was announced when school would start, the
newspapers conveyed the information to the people of Mount Hope and sur-
rounding vicinities that the High School would have a new football coach, Chalmer
A. Ault, of West Virginia Wesleyan College. Coach Ault took a great interest
in the football squad and turned out a very good team, despite the fact that there
were five regulars missing when the roll was called this year. The positions left
open at the beginning of the season were filled by raw recruits drafted into serv-
ice the past season.
A good schedule had been arranged by last year's coach, Mr. Harvey, and so
this kept up the enthusiasm and pep all along. for the gang knew they would
play against some of the strongest teams in this section of the state. The schedule
was carried out and the team played a very successful season. Although they met
their ll'aterloo a few times, along with their victories, they never lost their pep,
and were proudly referred to as the " Yellowjackctsu by the school and local fans.
No stars can be picked out of this team, for it was not a team of individual
stars, but each player held before him the ideal of " Each for all. and all for each'
The best teams in this section of the state were met, such as: Oak Hill, East
Bank, Beckley, Hinton, and Athens.

Boys' Basket Ball
The basket ball squad began practice immediately after the football knocks
were well. The squad was under the instruction of Coach Chalmer A. Ault, of
VVest Virginia VVesleyan College. Coach Ault turned out a very good team,
considering the circumstances.
The team lost two regulars from the last year's squad. These two positions
were filled by material from last year's reserve.
The season was opened with the Hrst game at East Bank. It was the first
game played in East Bankls new "gym, " and Mount Hope defeated them 19-10.
This was the first time a Mount Hope Team has invaded the East Bank territory
and swept them off their feet. V
The most spectacular game was played at home against the strong Greenbrier
Military Academy team. Mount Hope ended the season by winning eight out
of fourteen games.

Have you ever stopped to think what that one word, "confidence,"
means to the every-day life of a community? ln the four successful
years of our business it has been our aim to get the confidence of the public.
The clothing field is not large enough to only sell every person once, but
the success of our business depends on getting the confidence of our cus-
tomers resulting in repeat orde1's. So this is the way we measure our
success by the degree of confidence our trade has in ns.
YVe have found that the best way to get the good will of the trade is
to sell them merchandise that we have confidence in ourselves. We do
not have an article that we are I10t confident will give satisfaction.
Our lilies of merchandise are purchased with the object of pleasing
the public, for if we do not please the public, then our business is a failure.
We have been successful because our many friends have enough faith
in us and our merchandise to come again and again, which IS proof that
they have confidence in us.
If you are not one of the many who have solved thc problem of getting
quality plus style, plus reasonable prices, just come in our new and modern
store in the new llfasonic Building and make one purchase. If we please
you, come again. If we do not, tell us, and we will please you, regardless.
Uur line consists of the best quality goods that we can purchase, and
we absolutely guarantee every article that is sold out of our store. Among
some of our specials are: Styleplus and Collegian Clothing for men and
young me11, Bfenis Shop shirts for men, Hanan Shoes, Allen A. Hosiery
and Underwear, and Right Posture Clothing for boys.
