LIBRARY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA GIFT OF DIVISION OF EXTENSION VIRGINIA HIGH SCHOOL LITERARY AND ATHLETIC LEAGUE Box 1487, Charlottesville, Virginia COMMENTS ON THE 1945 PUBLICATIONS CONTEST Annuals Group 4 : The Confederate . Stonewall High School The Confederate . 1945 is a good yearbook and a worthy accom¬ plishment of which your obviously devoted and hard-wo rking staff can be justly proud. Your cover is both neat and durable; your student art work on the division pages seldom fails to be amusing as well as apt; you offer well rounded pictures of your seniors in furnishing with the photographs nicknames, well and interestingly written thumbnail sketches, and activity lists; you do well to include at least group pictures of all students in your school; your snapshot layouts are attractive and the pictures generally amusing; you honor your members in service, and you supply as historical record a calendar of the year ' s highlights. On the other hand, you carefully identify each person in your class group pictures, but fail to seei any need for doing the same with your activity group pictures; you have a generally satisfying make-up but on occasion permit too much white space to show. Try filling up such spaces with little, interesting features next year. You might well take your photographer to task for certain of his group pictures; frequently the features, even at times entire faces, are indistinct, generally covered with dark shadows. You devote perhaps a dispropor¬ tionate amount of space to your football write-up; at least you could have included a schedule of coming baseball games, even if your year¬ book went to press before the season began. Judge: C. William Miller Instructor of English University of Virginia THE CONFEDERATE 1945 Published by The Senior Class of Nineteen Forty-Five at Stonewall High School Clear brook, Virginia Foreword We, the members of the Confederate Staff, have tried to put forth in this book our fond memories at Stonewall and we hope it will be of interest to you. We hope that you will receive as much en¬ joyment in reading this book as we have had in editing and preparing it for publication. To future Senior Classes we trust it will present a challenge to make this book better from year to year. Editor-in-Chief L j PK0PE_uY Ci ? THE LIP’ QFVElGINrt EICMOND.VA Dedication We take pride in dedicating- this annual to those who, through their efforts and work in the interest of Stonewall High School, have been in a large degree responsible for our success—the patrons of this school. These patrons include: Our Parents —without whose advice and stalwart judgment we would have assuredly failed to reach our goal; The Alumni —whose successes have inspired us; The Friends of the School —who have watched with great interest our accomplishments and who have strived to make the school progress; The Gentlemen of the Board of Supervisors and the School Board— to whose efforts we owe our school, and in no small manner, our education; All Contributors to the 1945 Confederate —the business firms as well as individual subscribers, without whose help we would have been unable to publish this annual; Our Boys in the service —who are fighting in order that we at home may have the opportunity for a free education. To these patrons we owe our thanks and in appreciation of the services rendered by these people, we gratfully dedicate this annual. BRYANT R. HARPER Principal Mr. Harper, our principal, has been our inspiration since we entered high school. He has rendered valuable assistance in all that we have accomplished, and he has helped us in every way possible. Mr. Harper attended Handley High School and graduated in 1928. From there he went to Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, graduating in 1932 with a Bachelor of Arts degree. In October, 1944, Mr. Harper received a Master of Arts degree from the University of Virginia. This degree was bestowed upon him for his specialized study and thesis on public school administration. He has served as principal of Stonewall High School for four years. Faculty MRS. VIRGINIA HOMAR First Grade Averett College Danville, Va. MISS GRACE V.

A., Guilford College Shepherd College MISS JOLLIFFE Sponsor Miss Jolliffe, our sponsor, is the beacon on whose beam we have been brilliantly and successfully guided during- our Senior year. Her helpfulness, endurance, leadership and inte¬ grity were the qualities needed to inspire us. She, “the lady with a torch, whose flame is constantly burning ' ,” has captured our hearts, and won the admiration and respect of all. Miss Jolliffe attended Handley High School in Winchester, Virginia, and graduated in 1937. She entered Farmville State Teachers College and graduated with a B. S. degree in 1941. Upon her graduation from college, she accepted a position in the recently built Stonewall High School and has been a mem¬ ber of the high school faculty for four years. Senior Class Officers President Glenvil Whitacre Vice-President Mary Eilen Nethers Secretary Hildren Blandford Treasurer Hazel Bageant HAZEL MARCELLA BAGEANT “Hazel” Who’s that we hear giggling? Why, of course, it’s Hazel, who gets a laugh out of almost anything. She is always ready to go any place, any time, and she has a good time after she gets there. Her willingness to cooperate makes her either a good leader or a good follower. She doesn’t always have her work ready for class but gets in a big splutter and tries to get it done. Whenever you hear the say¬ ing, “Deed, I declare”, you know Hazel is close by. This year she played the role of Mrs. Highgate in the Dramatic Club play. She is very active in sports but softball is her favorite, especially when she hurls the ball across homeplate. She hasn’t decided what she is going to do after school, but we know she will make a success at anything she attempts.

Member: Dramatic Club, Softball Squad 1944- 45 Treasurer: Senior Class. Member: Dramatic Club, Monogram Club, The Confederate Staff, Cheer Lead¬ er, Social and Recreational Committee of S. C. A. HILDREN RANDOLPH BLANDFORD “Hildy” Hildren Blandford is a 140 pound bundle of jokes, good times and friendliness. He is witty and is generally looking on the bright side of life. Exceptionally talented, he is gifted with a good tenor voice. Hildy just seems to make good grades without devoting too much of his time to studies. Although he has been with us only two years, nevertheless he has brought honor to our school in the form of a “VL” award for boys’ prose reading, secured at the University of Virginia in the 1944 Virginia Literary and Athletic League. ACTIVITIES 1941-43 Attended school in Cleveland, Ohio 1943- 44 Winner of Va. Literary Contest. Member: Baseball Squad, Dramatic Club 1944 - 45 Secretary: Senior Class. Member: Stonewall News Staff, and Dramatic Club. WILLIAM LYNNWOOD CARPENTER “Lynn” Lynn has loads of fun laughing when he pulls pranks on his fellow Seniors. Apparently quiet and timid, he doesn’t say much until his temper is riled. Then he takes up for himself. He is well-liked, less troublesome to the teachers than any other boy in the Senior Class, and enjoys baseball and foot¬ ball. Once he puts his mind to do something, he usually ac¬ complishes it. He is an avid baseball fan and knows the sta¬ tistics on practically any game or any player that is mentioned. Stonewall regrets to lose Lynn, with his conservative ways, his swell disposition and his good sportsmanship. ACTIVITIES 1941- 1942—Member:. Hobby Club, Baseball Team 1942- 1943—Member:.Athletic Club, Baseball Team 1943- 1944—President: Monogram Club; Member: Stonewall News Staff, Baseball Team. 1944- 1945—Member: Monogram Club, Stonewall News Staff, Football Squad and Baseball Team HOWARD NEWTON CARPER, JR. “Fignewton” Whenever an idea is needed by the Senior Class, Howard fills the bill. Expert in the line of humorous wisecracks, he always has an answer to everything. An excellent leader, one has merely to look at his extra-curricular activities to understand his qualities. Polite, with dreamy moods, he is the average American student. Cautious in all he attempts, he always figures things out slowly and carefully and then gives his answer. His ambition is to become an airpiane engineer and we wish him luck in this field. ACTIVITIES 1941- 1942—Member: Glee Club, Dramatic Club, Baseball Squad 1942- 1943—Secretary: .Student Council; Member:.

That’s “Gene!” “Gene”, likable, entertaining, witty, is an easy person with which to get along. “Gene” is thoughtful at times but these moods are seldom. He hopes to attend V. P. I. and become a veterinary after the war. Imagine “Gene” as a horse doctor! ACTIVITIES 1941- 1942—Member:.Glee Club, Dramatic Club, Baseball Team 1942- 1943—Member: .Athletic Club, Dramatic Club, Baseball Team; President:.Sophomore Class 1943- 1944—Member:.

Football Squad, Baseball Team, Dramatic Club, Monogram Club; Assistant Editor:.The Con¬ federate; Sports Editor: “Stonewall News” ROBERT BRUCE GIBBS “Bobby” Bobby, as a rule, is a liberal-minded, tolerant person with a light, pleasing disposition. He is liked by everyone—in other words, he’s “a right guy.” He is not to be led; his ability to definitely make up his mind sets him off from the crowd and gives him his individu¬ alistic, slightly reserved personality. He is inclined to do only what he wishes—but usually has the good judgment to do the proper things at the proper time. He is a veteran of two years of a foreign language. One of the few boys to have undertaken such a grave venture, he came through with flying colors. ACTIVITIES 1941- 1942—Member:. Football Squad, Baseball Team 1942- 1943—Member:. Athletic Club, Dramatic Club, Football Squad, Baseball Team 1943- 1944-—Member:. Monogram Club, Dramatic Club, Football Squad, Baseball Team. 1944- 1945—Member:. Stonewall News Staff, Dramatic Club, Monogram Club, Football Squad, Baseball Team. CATHERINE GOLIGHTLY “Golig’htly” Now gaze upon Catherine Golightly, one of our typing wizards. Catherine joined our class in her Junior year and since then has become one of us. She is a good student and also one of the few blondes of the Senior Class. You will find her a rare good pal an d one who takes part in all school activities. She is not sure of her future but maybe it’s the Wacs ? ? ? ? We see she has really been drilling that group in marching! Seriously though, we know she will be a great success, especially if she makes good use of her typing ability. ACTIVITIES 1941-1942—Attended school at Boyce. 1943- 1944—Member: Dramatic Club, Soft Ball Squad. 1944- 1945—Typist:. Stonewall News, The Confederate; Secre¬ tary: Monogram Club; Member: Dramatic Club. HELEN JUANITA GORDON “Helen” Helen is one of the quiet, serious girls in the Senior Class, but she is well liked by everyone. She studies quite a lot and always has her homework up-to-date. Her expert typing gives her a job as typist on the Stonewall News and also on The Confederate Staff. If there is anything to be done, you can depend on Helen trying to help in any way she can. In the future she plans to go to Business College and we all hope that she will make as good a stenographer as she has an office girl at Stonewall. ACTIVITIES 1941- 1942—Member: Dramatic Club, Glee Club. 1942- 1943—Member: Dramatic Club, Glee Club. 1943- 1944—Member: Dramatic Club; Stonewall News Staff. 1944- 1945—Member: Dramatic Club, Softball Squad; Typist: Stonewall News, The Confederate. JAMES VERNON HUTTON, JR. “Hutch” Many of us have followed Jimmy since the second grade. Followed? Yes, for he has always been a leader. Having always taken a major part in public events of the school, he won the public speaking award of the Virginia Lit¬ erary and Athletic Association in 1944. Hutton reads and studies a lot and always has his homework (with the exception of, perhaps, a few times in this busy Sen¬ ior year of ours). His favorite study, history, which to him is almost a talent, he has pursued diligently through the years- never to be satisfied with any grade lower than an “A”. He, as most American youths, inherited a love for baseball and is an ardent “fan”. He now plays “first-string” at the “initial sack” (although, as is the custom, he has varied his position from time to time—that is since the second grade.) ACTIVITIES 1941- 1942—Member: Glee Club, Dramatic Club, Student Coun¬ cil, Baseball Team. 1942- 1943—Member: Literary Club, Dramatic Club, Athletic Club, Baseball Team, Business Manager: Stonewall News. 1943- 1944—Business Manager: Stonewall News; Member: Dramatic Club, Monogram Club, Baseball Team. 1944- 1945—President: Student Body; Literary Editor: The Confederate, The Stonewall News; Member: Mono¬ gram Club, Dramatic Club, Baseball Team. MARY ELLEN NETHERS “Mary Ellen” Who’s that we hear gpggling? Of course, its Mary Ellen. However, she isn’t laughing all the time—just when the notion strikes her. Mary Ellen is our best-all-around Senior, a title she well deserves. She is very co-operative and takes part in all sports and school activities. She has worked hard on the annual and has made a very good Editor. We know she will be liked and admired as much in the future as she has been here at Stonewall. ACTIVITIES 1941- 1942—Member: Dramatic Club, Glee Club. 1942- 1943—Vice-President: Sophomore Class; Treasurer: Glee Club; Member: Dramatic Club. 1943- 1944—Vice-President: Junior Class; Reporter: Dramatic Club; Member: Soft Ball Squad. 1944- 1945—Vice-President: Monogram Club, Senior Class; Member: Dramatic Club; Editor: The Confederate. DOUGLAS BOYER O’CONNELL “Dougie” Dougie, the guy who enjoys his own jokes so much that he goes into hysterics before he lets you in on the laugh, is al¬ ways charming, cheerful, and “equipped with a built-in chuckle.” We doubt that he ever had a serious thought—or at least agree that if he did, he didn’t take it seriously. He can always see the “Good” side of any situation—even if it hasn’t one. Our only pianist, Dougie plays semi-classical and popular music, but prefers “Boogy Woogy.” “Cute”, as the girls would say, he is always neat and a gentleman. He usually seems to “shy” away from girls— that is, girls, in the plural. ACTIVITIES 1941- 1942—Member: Glee Club 1942- 1943—Member: Hobby Club 1944-1945—Typist: Stonewall News, The Confederate; Mana¬ ger: Baseball Team. DOROTHY VIRGINIA OWENS “Dot” Dorothy, better known to us as “Dot”, is new at Stonewall this year. Her keen sense of humor keeps the Senior girls laughing all the time. She is very quiet but will always co¬ operate with us. When anything is discussed in class meet¬ ings, it is always all right with her, no matter what it may be. Her friendly face (which incidentally is sprinkled with freck¬ les) and her pleasant manner have made her liked by every¬ one in the Senior Class. ACTIVITIES 1941-1943—Attended Stephens City School 1944-1945—Member: Dramatic Club, Finance S. C. A. Committee of DOROTHY AUGUSTINE RENNIE “Dot yy “Dot”, the blond bombshell of the Senior Class, is our best looking Senior, according to the choice of the high school students. She is willing to cooperate and do her share in everything. Dorothy’s greatest weakness is spelling and she can be seen any where in school with her spelling book in hand. She loves to dance and takes part in all extra-curricular activities at school. Her pleasant ways and likable dispo¬ sition have made her a friend of all—especially when they see her leave class to ring the bell. ACTIVITIES 1941- 1942—Member: Dramatic Club, Glee Club. 1942- 1943—Treasurer: Sophomore Class; Member: Dramatic Club, Glee Club. 1943- 1944—Member: Dramatic Club, Soft Hall Squad, Student Council Representative. 1944- 1945—Secretary: Dramatic Club; Member: Stonewall News Staff, Student Council Representative; Cir¬ culation Manager: The Confederate. GERTRUDE ADA STUMP “Gertie” Gertie has been with us since our Freshmen year. Everyone finds her charming because of her brown curly hair, green eyes, and pleasant smile. She is earnest in her opinions and, like all of the Seniors, enjoys having fun. Gertie is one of our bi ' ightest students, and has taken part in many activities. After graduating she wants to join the Nurse Cadet Corps. For the first two months of this year, Gertie attended Fairfax High School at Fairfax, Virginia, but she returned here to graduate with the rest of us. However, even though she returned, we’re afraid she left her heart behind. ACTIVITIES 1941- 1942—Member: 1942- 1943—Member: 1943- 1944—Member: 1944- 1945—Member: Glee Club, Dramatic Club. Dramatic Club. Softball Squad, Dramatic Club Stonewall News Staff, Dramatic Club. CHARLES GLENVIL WHIT ACRE “Gimmie” Glenvil is undoubtedly the most energetic member of the Senior Class. Witty, intelligent, practical-minded, he has al¬ ways thought things out for himself. Stonewall will long remember with pride and gratitude how magnificently he has worked on stage lighting, the newspaper, general repairs, and in Science and Chemistry classes. He is especially interested in mathematics and sciences. He also “tinkers” around with electricity and photography and various inventions which he hopes some day will make him wealthy. ACTIVITIES 1941- 1942—Member: Dramatic Club, Hobby Club, Glee Club. 1942- 1943—Member: Stonewall News Staff. 1943- 1944—Publisher: Stonewall News. 1944- 1945—Publisher: Stonewall News; Member: Football Squad; President: Senior Class; Photographic Edi¬ tor: The Confederate. MARY CATHERINE WHITE “Cassie” Who’s that attractive little blond tripping down the hall? Why, it’s none other than “Cassie”, who has won many friends during her three years here at Stonewall High. She works hard on the Stonewall News as typist and is willing to cooperate with us in any way. You can always see her playing any game which is in progress during Physical Educa¬ tion. Whenever you see any little pixies drawn on paper or in the Annual, you know Mary Catherine has spent a lot of time on them. All the Senior girls are a little envious of her ambition to be a pilot. It must be convenient as well as in¬ teresting during this man power shortage. ACTIVITIES 1941- 1942.—Attended Stephens City School 1942- 1943—Member: Dramatic Club, S. C. A. Council. 1943- 1944—Member: Glee Club, Dramatic Club, Stonewall News Staff, Softball Squad; President: Junior Class. 1944- 1945—Member: Dramatic Club; Art Editor: Stonewall News, and The Confederate. MARY CATHERINE WILLIAMS “Mary Catherine” Did I hear someone say “Howdie”? Yes, that must have been Mary Catherine. She has laughed herself through school and can top off a joke on herself with laughter. In every soft- ball game she is usually seen in Center Field. Mary Catherine spends a great deal of her time talking about her height but we all know she isn’t too tall. She has a pleasant disposition and a likeable personality. Mary Catherine is a good typist and a very good student. We are all sure she will prosper in anything she undertakes.

Class Will Knowing that our scholastic days are fast fading, we the class of nineteen hundred forty-five of Stonewall High School, of the town of Clearbrook, State of Virginia, U. S. A., do summon you to our presence on this solemn occasion to list to this proclamation, our last will and testament. We leave our collected physical and abstract possessions to those whom we deem fitting recipients. We do bequeath to the understated the following: To David Fahnestock, Eugene Funkhouser leaves the role of most prominent Republican. Catherine Golightly and Hildren Blandford leave to Catherine Travers and Curtis Wilson their extensive knowledge of the art of flirting. To Mildred Williams, Mary White leaves her artistic ability. Helen Gordon leaves her quiet disposition to Kathleen Shiley. Jennie Lou Miller, Lillian Lockhart and Anna Marie Clark are to receive Dorothy Owens’ unerring belief in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. To Nancy Lodge, Mary Fishback and Betty Martin the Senior girls leave their combined good looks. To Jeanne Hoover, Mary Catherine Williams leaves her athletic abilities. To Harold Dawson, Douglas O’Connell leaves his smooth dancing tendencies. To Bobby Driver, Jimmie Hutton leaves all the chewing gum that is stuck under the library tables. To Phyliss McDonald, Glenvil Whitacre leaves his superb spelling ability. Hazel Bageant leaves her hard earned nick-name “Luanda,” to Virginia Herrell. Mary Ellen Nethers leaves to next year’s annualeditor tons and tons of work and responsibility. To a future Senior Dorothy Rennie leaves the sacred trust of ringing the class bell on time. Howard Carper leaves to Alfred Armel his pet excuse “I’ve got too much to do.” To William Castleman, Lynn Carpenter leaves his Sunday round-house pitch. Bobby Gibbs leaves his collection of corny jokes to Mae Fries and Bobby Whitmore. We appoint as executor of this document, Mr. Harper, who shall give bond that he will endeavor to carry out faithfully our last requests. As we depart this life, we, the class of nineteen hundred and forty-five, do hereby set our hand and seal this 7th day of June, in the year of our Lord, Nineteen Hundred and forty-five. Signed: Class Testator Howard Carper Class Prophecy As I was walking down the street one day who should I meet but my old friend Dorothy Rennie. As women are always prone to gossip, we two were no exception. We talked about what some of our former class-mates of the Senior Class of 1945 were doing but, as much as we both get around, there were some we just didn’t know about. Wanting to see them all again, we decided to call a class reunion and the date set was for April 6, 1994. When we all gathered together that day, we certainly were a happy crowd,, and I managed to find out precisely what each one was doing. Imagine my surprise when I learned that Hildren Blandford was a hermit in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Lynn Carpenter had become head mandolin player with the Smokey Moun¬ tain Boys. He is getting more education by going to night school. Howard Cai-per is still a single, good-looking lawyer with slightly graying hair. He is also still indulging in his old hobby, that of dating a blond. Eugene Funkhouser is now our most famous member and was unable to at¬ tend because of the press of his duties in running for President of the United States on the Republican ticket. His party is boosting the campaign by selling purple Funkhouser buttons. Bobby Gibbs followed a circus to Mexico and there married a Mexican cook. He is rolling in fat from the food his wife cooks and now has three children, “Lolita”, “Rosita” and “Conchita.” Jimmie Hutton has become Prosecuting Attorney of New York State, and incidentally sprouts a Dewey-style moustache. Helen Goi’don is now Attorney Hutton’s private secretary. Douglas O’Connell has taken Miss Cochran’s place giving music lessons at dear old Stonewall High. Glenvil Whitacre, having started as office boy, is now publisher of the Wash¬ ington Post. Dorothy Rennie has succeeded Mary Hayworth in writing “Advice to the Love Lorn Column” in the Washington Post. Gertrude Stump takes Frances Perkins place as Secretary of Labor. Mary Catherine Williams plays center field for the professional “Stephenson Polecats” Softball team, which has the odds to win this year’s World Series. Eugene Funkhouser became fascinated with Dorothy Owens’ purple sweaters and they are now happily married. Catherine Golightly eloped with “Smithy” Dorsey and now lives in a small cabin in Tennessee. Hazel Bageant is auditioning for a place as a soprano singer in the Metro¬ politan Opera Company. Of course, she has been trying for 25 years. Remember how Mary Ellen Nethers held the office of Vice-President in most activities at school? Well, now she is Vice-President of a Physical Education Board Mary Catherine White is Aviatrix with the Transcontinental Air Ways.

It was also decided to endeavor to have the book on the market by May. The Staff has strived to attain these ends and has worked with wholehearted effort to prepare this annual. The Staff hopes it has succeeded in all its aims and sincerely hopes that all persons who read this book will find it up to their expectations. The Annual Stall - : Editor-in-Chief.

COUNCIL The Student Cooperative Association Council met at the beginning of the school year and set up certain goals which it intended to accomplish during the year. The work of the Council is to act as a governing body for the school and to regulate the students in a democratic way. This year the Council secured for the school a combination radio and phonograph, it encouraged the buying of War Stamps and Bonds and it sponsored parties, which were to be given every month for the students. The object of this was to provide a certain degree of enter¬ tainment for the pupils. The S. C. A. Council is composed of the President, Vice- President, Secretary and Treasurer of the S. C. A. and one representative from each of the high school rooms.

We set this as our main goal. For our second goal, we planned to have one public play during this year. The Dramatic Club members, accomplishing one of their goals, presented a public play, November 17, 1944, entitled: “Take It Easy”—a three act farce-comedy. The following members made up the cast: Hazel Bageant, Dorothy Rennie, Catherine Travers, Helen Crim, James Hutton, Robert Gibbs, Robert Driver, Howard Carper, Wayne DeHaven, and Harold Dawson. We made one definite accomplishment toward our first goal, which was equip¬ ping the stage with scenery, when we purchased French doors.

After you have earned the required number of points, you are posted as being eligible for membership in the club. Before you can be admitted, however, a majority of the present members must give their consent. If allowed to enter, you are subjected to a two-day goating period, followed by a rigid ini¬ tiation. Only after you have undergone all these requirements, in a sportsman-like manner, are you declared an official member of the club. Both boys and girls are admitted to the same club—the only difference being the girls receive smaller letters than the boys. The Monogram Club’s activities during the school year include a number of dances to help pay for the athletic equipment and for improvements made to the school for the use of athletic teams. Our system of awarding extra letters is very different from most schools. Instead of present¬ ing additional “S” Monograms, we give a star which corresponds to another “S”. Monogram certi¬ ficates, signed by the Principal and the President of the Monogram Club, are presented to each stu¬ dent who secures a letter. OFFICERS: President.

R. Harper. Early in October Mr. Harper made preparations for us to have a powerful six man team in ’44 - ’45. Gruelling practice, careful study of plays, learning the fundamentals of blocking, tackling, passing and kick¬ ing helped to produce a team quite worthy of recognition. With plenty of manpower, Coach Harper organized three teams. The first team was equipped with powerful running attackers and was composed mostly of regulars from last year. The second team specialized in passing and relieving the first team. It was chiefly composed of newcomers to the gridiron. The third team or “Midgets” were organized with future prospects ahead of them.

Total Games Won - - - 5 Played Tied - - - 1 Lost ... 4 Highlights on the Gridiron Boyce at Stonewall.Sept. 29, 1944.Score (0 - 0) On a warm, sunshiny day Boyce and Stonewall played their first game of the season. The contest was nip and tuck all the way with the Clark “Countians” having an edge over the “Rebels” in statistics. Out¬ standing highlights of the game were Driver’s powerful offensive plunges for the “Rebels” compared to Longerbeam’s “shifty” defensive work for Boyce. Strasburg at Stonewall.Oct. 6, 1944.Score (32 - 6) Ideal football day. Wind—Moderate. Field Condition—excellent. The “Yellow Jackets” proved to be a hard nut to crack, but, thanks to Driver, Stonewall won. It was Driver’s deadly onslaught and plunging ability which accounted for all the touchdowns. Gibbs converted once. The “Yellow Jackets” scored once, late in the fourth quarter. Horn’s fleet-footed running accounted for their only tally. Stonewall at Woodstock.Oct. 13, 1944.Score (32 - 6) The field was wet and soft at Woodstock when the “Rebels” clashed with the “Wolves.” It was clearly evident all through the game that Stonewall out-classed their opponents. Driver accounted for two touch¬ downs by end runs and line “bucks,” but without a doubt, this was Car¬ per’s Day for he ran sixty yards for a tally in the second quarter and fifty yards in the third canto for six more points. Stickles and Armel each caught a pass for an extra point. Gibbs also secured a touchdown. Hottle’s thirty-three yard run for the “Wolves” netted them six points. Hedgesville at Stonewall.Oct. 23, 1944.Score (33 - 24) The “scrappy” West Virginia team proved stiff competition to the “Rebels.” Driver was responsible for two Stonewall tallys, Carper for one, Stickles one, Armel one, and Gibbs scored for three points. For Hedgesville, Avery scored twice, Plotner once, and Files once. High¬ lights: Avery’s fast running, Stonewall’s splendid playing, particularly Armel’s blocking for the “Rebels.” Stonewall at Berryville.Oct. 27, 1944.Score (0 - 12) Journeying to Berryville in high spirits after three consecutive wins, the “Rebels” were in for a disappointing- day on the gridiron. Because of very little coordination, the “Rebels” just couldn’t seem to get going. A fifty yard pass from Wisecarver to Jenkins was responsible for one touchdown and another pass from Wisecarver to Bodenschatz accounted for six more points. Carper made a brilliant fifty-five yard dash across the goal which the referee called back because Driver’s forward motion had stopped before he lateraled the ball to Carper. Stonewall failed to secure a single point. Highlights on the Gridiron Stonewall at Strasburg.Nov. 3, 1944.Score (22 - 23) Probably our most thrilling football battle of the year! Carbaugh accounted for sixteen of the “Yellow Jackets” points an d Horn ac¬ counted for seven. Driver was responsible for twelve of the “Rebels” points, Gibbs—two, Stickles—six, and Whitacre—two. In the dying sec¬ onds of the game with Stonewall trailing sixteen to twenty-three, Castle- man unleashed a beautiful spiraling pass to Stickles for a tally. The score then read: 22 to 23 in Strasburg’s favor. Gibbs, the “Rebels” conver¬ sion expert, attempted to kick the extra point, but failed, missing the up-rights by scant inches. Stonewall at Hedgesville.Nov. 10, 1944.Score (19 - 14) Gibb’s Day! Bobby Gibbs, “Rebels” right end was responsible for thirteen out of nineteen Stonewall points. He made an outstanding catch and a neat thirty yard run. Driver also plunged over for a tally. Plotner and Eversole did outstanding work for the West Virginians. Woodstock at Stonewall.Nov. 17, 1944.Score (45 - 12) Completely outclassed again, Woodstock did manage to get two touch¬ downs, one against the second team and the other against the third team. Lutz was responsible for both tallys. The “Rebels” rolled up a tremendous score with virtually every mem¬ ber of the first team scoring. Two members on the second team scored also. Driver accounted for twelve points, Carper—six, Armel—seven, Whitacre—two, Gibbs—six, Castleman—six, and Funkhouser—six. Berryville at Stonewall.Nov. 23, 1944.Score (20 - 26) Closely fought contest! Points attributed to: Stickles—six, Gibbs —eight, and Carper—six. Berryville’s White displayed unusual running- ability. He netted them twelve points. Bodenschatz tallied once as did Lloyd. A safety helped to give Berryville a commanding lead over the “Rebels.” Stonewall at Boyce.Nov. 29, 1944.Score (18 - 28) Smarting after their defeat by Berryville and eager to break the tie which existed between Boyce and ourselves, the “Rebels” journeyed to the Clark County school with grim determination to win their last game of the season. Driver and Carper were the spearheads o f attack in this game as in quite a few others. Driver accounted for six points and Carper for twelve. Longerbeam, spunky, shifty, quick thinking Boyce full back, was responsible for all of Boyce’s points except three. Thus Stonewall closed the football season with an excellent gridiron record. BASEBALL TEAM The Stonewall Baseball Team was organized in 1942 under the able direction of Coach B. R. Harper. The team became affiliated with the Frederick—Clarke Baseball League in that same year. Our entrance into the League increased the number of members to seven. Although Coach Harper had to start from “scratch” in organizing a team, he did a splendid job considering the fact that he had only a few experienced players. In 1942, 1943, and again in 1944, we weren’t able to secure many victories from the other members of the League, but in numerous instances we put up such “stiff” resistance and “scrappy” determination to win that it oftimes astonished our rivals. Nevertheless, in 1945, we shall again take to the field and we shall fight toward the goal of capturing the Star Trophy, which is awarded to the top team in the League. Rest assured that the Stonewall nine will live up to the inspiring word they have adopted as their nickname—the “Rebels.” Our team this year will be composed of eight first “stringers” from past years, who have had considerable experience in Baseball and two newcomers, who prom¬ ise to develop into worthwhile players. Those out for the team include: Infield—(1) Eugene Funkhouser—Veteran for three years and a regular last year. (2) James Hutton—Veteran for three years and a regular for three years; (3) Alfred Armel—-regular last year; (4) Lynn Carpenter—-veteran second “stringer” for two years; (6) Howard Carper—veteran second “stringer” for three years; (7) Bobby Lewis—second “stringer” last year; (8) Lewis Dorsey—second “stringer” last year; and (9) Hildren Blandford—substitute last year. Outfield—(1) Robert Gibbs—Veteran for three years and a regular for two years; (2) Bobby Driver—Veteran of three years and two years a regular: (3) Harold Lamp—Veteran for two years; (4) David Fahnestock—second “stringer” last year; (6) Jack Patton—second “stringer” for two years; and (7) Ronald Carper— a newcomer. Pitchers—(1) “Buddy” Castleman—Veteran for two years and regular last year; (2) Thomas Stickles—regular last year; and (3) Harold Dawson and (4) “Buddy” Miller—second “stringer” last year. Catchers—(1) Guy DeHaven—second “stringer” last year and (2) John Cole— a newcomer. Honor Roll Miss Lucille Jackson - -- -- -- -- -- - WAC James F. Huyett - -- -- -- -- -- -- Army Robert W.
