Faculty Adviser — 8 — Senior Class History It was a little hard for us to realize that those front chapel seats were for us, and that we were at last the class that goes first in line. We had been looking forward to it - -it was an event which seemed far in the future in the fall of 1917, but here we were preceeding the other classes from assembly. Looking back we remember our high school years as the fullest years ever. In 1917 our freshman class assembled. Fred McCray was our president. R. O. Van Dyke and Roger Hagy were co-vice presidents and Gene Downs was secretary- treasurer. Fred McCray and Patty Dominguez were chosen outstanding freshmen. Our sophomore year we started the “stagger system” because of the crowded conditions. Nancy Huston was president and Roger Hagy was vice president. Roger Hagy, Elbert Harrison, Jimmy Hughes, Ralph Mullins, and Doug Peters were on the varsity football squad. Nancy Buston, Doris Newman, and Pearline Hankins played girls’ varsity basketball. This year Professor Larry Zingale joined the faculty and organized the high school band. Our junior year we will always remember for the junior-senior prom which carried out the theme “Gypsy Tea Room.” This year Roy Morrison, Pete Burkett, Warner Collins, and R. O. Van Dyke were on the football squad. We w r on both the county and district championship in football. In March we presented the junior play, “Spring Fever.” The class was ably led by Erline Kinder, president. Of course, we consider our senior year the greatest of all. We were led by Curtis Hughes, president of the Class of 1951, and Charles Spraker, president of the student body. This year Ralph Mullins and Jimmy Hughes were co-captains of the football team. We again won the county championship. Pauline Hankins ably captained the girls ’ basketball squad. At our fall carnival Nancy Buston and Roger Hagv reigned as King and Queen of Tazewell High School. The Y-Teen club was organized with Joanne Phillips presiding as president. These are just a few of the many memories which we will always cherish. Now there is the excitement of ordering caps and gowns, invitations and calling cards. The big rush of getting ready for the banquet. Junior-senior prom, and commencement excites everyone. We realize for the first time, that the big finale, graduation, is at hand— the time when we bid our Alma Mater farewell and step out into the world to be leaders of our nation and defenders of our land. —Jean Moorefield, Historian — 10 — — 11 — Senior Class Officers Curtis Hughes . .

History of Season BRISTOL—The Bulldogs showed early season sluggishness in losing their only game of the season to a strong Virginia High team 18-6. ABINGTON—Tazewell was really up for their second game of the season, and the Bulldogs walked off the field with a 41-20 victory. “Cokie” Kitts’ beautiful broken field running sparked the Bulldogs. POCAHONTAS—The following week the Bulldogs walloped an undermanned Pocahontas team 27-7. Doug Peters scored two touchdowns to lead Tazewell to victory. GRAHAM—The Bulldogs were supposed to receive a real test the following Friday, but our boys handed the G-Men a sound 26-0 lacing. RICHLANDS—Tazewell had to come from behind a 13-0 deficit at half-time to whip a surprisingly tough Richlands aggre¬ gation 20-13. This was the Bulldogs first win on a Richlands field in several years. NORTHFORK —After having had a game cancelled with Marion, Tazewell played host to an average North- fork eleven. The Bulldogs kept their four game winning streak alive by soundly whipping the Big Orange 20-0. PRINCETON—The Bulldogs were out for revenge for a 1949 loss to the Tigers. The entire Tazewell team played excellent football to cop a 33-7 victory. This was a sweet win for the Bulldogs. ELKHORN—Tazewell was slow getting started at Elkhorn, but once the Bulldogs began rolling, Elkhorn was in for a beating. Tazewell walked off the field with a 27-14 win. SALT- VILLE—The Bulldogs nipped a surprisingly tough Saltville Shaker eleven the following week by a 13-12 margin. Tazewell ended the season with an 8-1 record for the season of 1950. Congratulations are in order for Coaches Ramsey and LaVanche and the Tazewell Bulldogs. — 51 — Seasons Record Tazewell 6. .Bristol 18 Tazewell 11 . . Abingdon 20 Tazewell 27.
