s. H. wood, 1924 - 1956
' I came to Tyler county high school in the fall of 1924
with high hopes for the future of the school. While it seems
that I am denied the privilege of contributing further in
this development my hopes for its future are not dimmed. I
hope more progress will be made in the next twelve years than
has been made in the last twelve. I shall mention a few high
lights since 1924.
In 1924 there were 192 students and twelve teachers, in
1936, 567 students and thirteen and one half teachers. In
1924 there were 17 pupils to the teacher while in 1956 the
number increased to 28. Thirteen hundred individuals have
been enrolled one semester or longer during this time. Three
hundred forty-one students were graduated from 1908 to 1924
while 649 were graduated from 1924 to 1936.
The curriculum has become somewhat more academic because
teachers have not been added in proportion to the enlarged
enrollment. The library has deteriorated very much in the
last few years. It seems easier to get any other equipment
than books. Until the last few years the library was one of
the best in the state.
Over 69,000.00 was donated for school busses in a three
year period. This speaks for the excellent cooperation that
the patrons have given. Adequate high school transportation
was provided in some parts of the county. Seven school busses
were put into operation in Tyler county before the County Unit
Law was passed.
Tyler county high school was accepted by the North Cen-
tral Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools in 1926,
the first year for any West Virginia high school.
Senior class gifts, band instruments and uniforms to the
value of over e4,000 have been given as follows: silverware,
china, stage curtains, inside and outside lights, piano, stage
furniture, stage lighting, manual training equipment, band
uniforms and refrigerator. All these gifts are in excellent
The old gymnasium was remodeled for a library, a base-
ment room was finished for home economics, the manual train-
ing shop was built and three rooms were enlarged by removing
Since 1925 only sixteen teachers have been replaced by
others. This record will be hard to equal in any high school
of this size in the state. I
My sincere hope for the young people of Tyler county is
that the high school will, in the future, be conducted solely
for their benefit. Many of the best friendships that I have
ever made are found among the alumni and patrons of Tyler
county high school. This scheolmand Tyler county will always
have my best wishes. 'll y

treasurer, were very competent. And the freshmen and the
sophomores and the seniors went about murmuring about the
splendid Junior Fall Carnival the class presented on the
twelfth day before Christmas.
And it also came to

that they gave a great banquet. And the faculty and the sen-
iors Eartook of the feast and were loud in their praises say-

loudly acclaimed the class of 1956.
And once again as in the year previous the class held
its annual party on the day of Saint Valentine. And the stu-
dents greatly enjoyed the merriment and meals.
And after the twenty-seventh and twenty-eighth of the

plays sponsored by the schools in which each class would en-
deavor to present the best one. The plays were judged by
members of the Middlebburne Little Theatre. And lo the sen-
ior cast walked off with the first prize. The school ex-
claimei loudly, HHet eiggitty darn, they greatly deserved it.u
And one day a freshman came unto the mighty class offi-
cers who were Harry Myer, president, Jack Wilcox, vice-presi-
dent, Wilma Underwood, secretary, and Gwynn Doak, treasurer,
and spake unto them, saying, Uwhat must I do to be a senior?n
And they all replied as in one voice, nThou must grow wiser
in all the tricks of the trade. When we were freshmen we
acted as freshmen and played with little dolls and tricyeles,
but as we grew bolder we put aside such childish things, and
new look at us. You behold seniors-so what?U And the freshie
left much the wiser for his talk.
On the twenty and fourth day of the third month of the
year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred thirty-six, in
the library of the Tyler county high school, the class of '56
met to partake of the feast and frolic of the annual class
party. Although one boy received a face full of whipped
gelatin, every one enjoyed the gathering and it will always
remain in the minds of the graduating class as the most en-
joyable party they ever attended.
And the senior class attended a banquet given in honor
of them by the junior class. Here they were entertained and
fed until a late hour. The library was like unto a uCandy-
landn during this event. Amid the low, colored lights and
the sweet music, made wierd by the multi-colored reflections
from the huge mirrored crystal ball, the junior class and the
senior class mingled as brothers and sisters for probably
their last time.
And after much arguing and wrangling among members of
the senior play committee, and after there were only three
of the original members left in the committee, a play enti-
tled, UPatsy Strings Alengn was selected. Those receiving
parts were as follows:

nMeeting come to order,n said Ronald Wright, president
of the sophomore class of 1956, in his deep farmer's voice.
nMr. Davis has requested that we have some information for
the Tyler Echoes of 1956. Therefore we will have the
minutes of last year's doings read by Nellie Fiber in her
cute little way.'
nIn the fall of 1934 our bashful, silly, but happy group
entered Tyler High. Although we made many mistakes, we were
finally enrolled by the help of the faculty and booked as the
usual ignorant freshies. But we were proud of it. For our
class advisers, Miss Myer and Mr. Miller were graciously '
appointed. We soon held a class meeting and elected as our
class officers: president, Cecil Mayfield, vice-president,
Mary Rymerg secretary, Jeanne Kilcoyneg treasurer, Bayard
Sweeney, and athletic com ittee, Nellie Conaway and Howard
NA party was held in the fall and another in the spring.
Both were enjoyed by many of the freshmen,u concluded Nellie.
WNow,n said the president, UI want Madge Reed, the his-
torian, to give us the history of next ycar.H
nThat's what you thinkin replied Madge.
HI move that Rhea Baker tell us who dropped out of our
class last year,n cried Betty Bullman.
NO.K. They were --U '

omore class. 'That motion has to be seconded. Miss Rose

nThose who left us last year were Raymond Baker, Ethel
Booher, Thomas Cunningham, Maxine Duty, Viola Eddy, Imogene
Ferrell, Ruth Fletcher, Randall Gaston, Dorothy Kimball, Paul
Long, Roy Martin, Clark Ridgley, Elsie Smith, Esta Summers,
Bayard Sweeney, Homer Tennant, Ralph Swiger, and Burl

Up rose Clifford Hadley with, nGoodnessI Since we know
who left us, I move that Joe Ann Baker tell us who joined us
this year.u '
'I second the motion,u responded Mildred Freeland,
quietest girl in the class.
nJoe Ann Baker,n agreed the president.
Uwe have welcomed Jimmie Sellers, Jack Kile, and Charles
Forester into our bosoms,n read Joe Ann.
UMr. President, since I am a new member this year, I
would like to know who the officers of this year are,n re-
quested Charles Forester.

UI expect that we ought to have a report on the basket-
ball team,' bellowed Thomas Maple. P , A A
Uwill the sleepy member of the class, Robert Giboney,
tell about the basketball season?n asked the president.
nBy heck if I will,U responded Bob. nGet Jack Starcher,
the milk ma1d.n
WI was afraid of that, but here goes,u replied Jack. '
WWe started the tournament with the lineup as follows:
center, Hatzel Davisg forwards, Thomas Maple and Billy Jemi-
song guards, Robert Giboney and Charles Forester. We won the
tournament, defeating the freshmen and the juniors, with the
aid of Paul Cunningham and Cecil Mayfield.u
NWell, I'll be corn-swallowed if I don't think that we
ought to hear about the beauty contest,n suggested Helen Eddy
' UI will tell that,n cried Howard Wright. NI like blue-
'eyed girls. A girl was elected from each class. At the end
of the race Jeanne Kilcoyne was elected 'Miss Tyler.'n
NLeapin' lizzardsln broke in Elizabeth Keller. nDid you
see the blonde with Ronald Wright at the amateur program?n
HGive 'er the gongln said Cleo Wright as she noticed the
color of Ronald's face--tomato red!!!
Believe it or not--Charles Spencer always refers to us
as squirrels. He always says, 'Nuts to you." said Franklin
Fenner with his mouth full.
NI want a report of the class drama tournament,n re-
r. res en .
HI'll give a report of the tournament. The seniors won
first place, and we, the sophomores, took second,u said Ger-
nYou left out the fact that Jeanne Kilcoyne was the best
actress and Jimmie Sellers the best actor,n added Mary Jean
nWait!n yelled Fred Baker, manager of the basketball
team. nYou're forgetting the party that Hazel Cousten, Nelle
Fiber, and Rhea Baker held in honor of us.u
'Well, what do you think? I wasn't invited to that,U
spoke Burl Mercer, sheik of the class.
nYou don't know the gagln answered Donald Weekley.'
Beatrice Stackpole, trying to hurry up things said,
NHurry! We aren't accomplishing anything?'

HJames Henderson is an F. F. A. member. Let him tell
about it,H said Glenn James.
UGee whiz! That's a good idea,n said Ralph McGinnis.
HI second the motion to that.n
UWell, James, let's hear your piece,n said the curly-
haired Edwin McHenry. .
James began to read: uThe following sophomores took d
part in that wonderful play: Mary Rymer, Nellie Fiber, Robert
Reed, and Hazel Cousten. Robert made-a great hit as the hired
man. John Howard was the very efficient stage manaaer.n
nDad blame it! Why do you have to include me?W came from
John, the Quiet.
nOh, for a good reason,n answered Bessie Winland.
nBetter things come in small packages.n '
USince when?n asked Raymond Carroll.

Edith Mclntyre, Orval Davis, and Harley Spencer.'
uMr. President?n queried Zella Fiber weakly.
USome of us girls are interested in knowing if there are
any future farmers in this class? This being leap year, you
can guess the reason. I move that we have that list read.n .
nThe list will be read,n returned the president. HMadam
Secretary, give us the list.u
Nlhe farmers of the sophomore class are Rupert Dawson, -
Wayne Hoover, William Knox, Kenneth Kelch, and Arlen Wright,U
read the secretary. .
HThen we, the farmers, want to know about the girls who '
will live on farms,H said William Knox. nWe are as interested

Woodrow Doak, the champion hunter of the class. UI --5

HI move that the hunters of our class combine their
efforts to carry out the state game and fish laws,n added
uSpoken like a true sophomore, Woodrow,U approve the
president. UTQ do this noble work, I appoint the following
hunters: Edward Cunningham, Billy Doak, Donald Lemasters,
Ralph Kimble, Leland McHenry, Cless Owens, and William
UI move that we form some definite objectives for next
year. We want to be more active than we have been this year.
Let's have suggestions upon this subject,n cried Corlis.
UI second the motion,n said Marvin Lemasters.
nMr. President,n suggested Quinton Davis, NI think that
we ought to endeavor to sponsor more chapel programs, to have
the best Fall Carnival that Tyler.has ever seen, and to lead
the school with the largest number on the first honor roll.n
NI think that those are good suggestions and I move that
we adopt them,U said Alex Fiber.
NI second that motion,U responded Imogene Nolan.
nCarried,n called Ronald. nIt is now up to us that we
keep these objectives before us next year. Is there any other
business to bring before the c1ass?n
nWhen is our next meeting?u asked Jack Underwood. HI

HI shall appoint Mary Ellen McGinnis, our literary mem!
ber, to have charge of the next meeting and to notify us when
it shall be. Is there a motion for adjournment?n
nMr. President, I move that we adjourn,W exclaimed Wayman
NI second the motion,u said Woodrow Morgan.
And so the notorious sophomores left Tyler to meet in
the fall of 1936 as worldly-wise juniors.

FROM ONE CLOCK 'ro ANOTHER
To see Mr. and Mrs. Jumbo Clock quietly residing on the
spacious walls of old Tyler between the hours of nine and
four is only to mark the passing of timeg but to see the two
CMr. Jumbo in the hall and Mrs. Jumbo in the library? at the
weird hour of midnight when they are discussing the fate and
the status of the students of Tyler High is a thrill and an
adventure of the privileged few. It was through the kindness
of Mr. Wood that I entered the portals of old Tyler one night
at the appointed hour for the discussion of the freshmen class
of 1956. Having a small knowledge of shorthand, I was able
to get almost all of their conversation as I sat under Mr.
Miller's desk where neither Mr. nor Mrs. Jumbo was able to
suspect my presence. I deemed this information more reliable
than any I could get from the students, therefore I take this
opportunity to pass it on to you. The conversation follows
as I heard it -- -
uYes, Mr. Jumbo.u
Are you ready to go down the walks of Tyler life to see
this eminent freshmen elass?u
NYG S . H
HDon't you think, Mrs. Jumbo, that this class is without
any doubt the best that has ever entered Tyler's halls since
we hivi lived heres They hage had a larger per cent on the
rs onor ro an any o er e ass. yes --
. nJimmie, dear, what profession do yeu,think will prove
the most popular to this class?H
nWhat profession? Nursing, I believe, will prove the
most popular. It seems that our lasses want to be able to
take good care of our lads. There were Verchie Davis 'Kath-
leen Doak, Winona Ferguson, Opal Ferrell, Ila Franklin, Vir-
ginia Hurst, Lorene Morrell, Betty Johnson, Belldonnia Me-
Cullough, Margaret Mercer, Glenna Mae and Sylvia Robinson,
Alvaretta and Ordella Sattcrfield Gilda Waters Helen
Weokley, Merle Weekley, and Sara Meekley.n I can't see why
all of them wanted to do that. I think--
nWho will assist these nurses in their noble work? Have
we anyone aspiring the profession of an M. D.?n
Certainly Mr. Jumbo. Don't show your ignorance!
Darrell Ashenhart, the cowpunchcr, will be oneadoctor, Martha
Mouser will be of great assistance as an eye specialist.
Violet Seckman will perform a lifefs work to endear any of

plans to ride his companion, Raymond Ferrell's, horse. Ray-
mcnd and some other farmers-to-be, Leo Donley, Harold Gill-
ispie, Harold Henderson, James Midcap, Harold Waide, and
Gerald Warner, will raise horses which will bring Tyler and
Mr. Wayman fame.n
HBut, Mrs. Jumbo, will they ever marry?n
UDon't be silly,' ticked Mrs. Jumbo. nDon't you ever'
pay any attention to the girls of this beloved class? Why,
there are several who want to become farmers' wives. In
this group of girls I have noticed Dortha Beaver, Mary
Ferrell, Ruby Grimm, Esther Davis, Meriam Keys, Hilda Rice,
and Ruth Lemasters. Rebecca Kaul insisted that she wanted
to marry so she could darn Leo Donley's socks. Irene May-
field thinks that if she flirts she'll get married soon.
Virginia Robinson spends a lot of time in the library reading
books on how to marry rich men. Perhaps she may catch some
HMrs. Jumbo, have you ever seen anyone standing around
looking mooncyod at each other?N .
UYes, Jummie, I have seen Paul Jemison and Isabelle
Haught. I expect the inevitable there -- a happy home some-
day. Gresham Eddy Cso they sayl likes to loaf, but yet he
wants to get married. I hope he doesn't loaf too long be-
cause we don't want any Tyler bachelors, although Charles
Deloe declares that he will be one.n
nWho's the little red-head who stands out here by me
nDon't you know her? I'm really ashamed of you, Jummie.
That's Sara Crumrine who wants to be somebody's wife. Kenneth
Underwood says he hopes for a future bride -- so, why not?U
HNow Mrs. Jumbo, aren't you getting too personal?n
UTch-teh-teh! Jummie, do you think that we are going to
have any stenographers from this illustrous class?U
nYcs, dear. Just think of the ones I saw looking wist-
fully at the typing room today: Juanita Slack, Mary Louise
Ames, Mary Cumberledge, Emeline Fletcher, Nellie James, Helen
Fletcher, Barbara Keys, Esther Fletcher, Mabel Keys, Lucille
Wise, and Ruth Giboney. But dear, have you ever seen the
tall boy come into the hall -- the one who resembles Tom
uYes, Mrs. Jumbo. That is Eugene Mayfield, who will
never be forgotten for the role of Tom Sawyer which he played
when the freshmen gave a chapel program in honor of Mark
Twain's centennial. Eugene was also the president of the
freshmen class. He was the one who helped to make the fresh-
men party a success last fall. And he is the only member of
this distinguished class who professes to be a woman hater.
Perhaps Jessie Myers can do something about that.n
'Since you were upstairs, you ought to know who helped
to support Eugene in that Tom Sawyer play. I'd like to hear

EQ,-.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,TYLssz Ed-loss, ,e
uThat is a program we can never forget, Dorothy Tracy
appeared as Aunt Polly. She also made a name for herself in
the vo-ag play, Back to the Farm. But the supporting cast
for Tom Sawyer also included Herbert Darnell, the carpenter
of the class who contributed a nail keg to the properties of
the play, carrying it all the way from the bus garage to the
stage, James Mclntyre as the petit negro, with whom Bill
Robinson wouldn't dare to competeg William Ball as the
tiniestg Ruth DeLong as the little girl who lost her kittyg
Carl Gregg with a knack for detecting anything the matter with
anythingg Donald Spencer carrying a dead mouse to scare the
girlsg Sanford Tustin with an eye for taking care of his own
property to assure his future as a prize fighter, Harold
Waide, Emeline Fletcher, Billie Fluharty, Irene Mayfield, and
Charles H. Spencer also ably supported the cast.U
nNow listen, Jummie, didnft the freshmen score another
point in the one-act play tournament? It seems to me that
there was one.n
nRight you are, dearie. They presented The Catalogue.
The cast? Winona Ferguson was the young daughterg Jessie
Myers, her motherg Thomas Kearns, her fatherg Gordon Waters,
her brotherg and Roy Owens, her sweetheart. Thomas and Roy
were awarded the honor due them as best actors.N
nBut, Jummie, don't we recognize Jessie for something
else, too?H Q ,
nWhere is your memory? Jessie was the candidate from
the freshmen class in the race to find Miss Echoes.n -
HOh, skip it! 'Jummie, our little Alma Mann is striving
to be a musician. I often wonder if she will be able to make
that much noise.n
nMrs. Jumbo, do you think that we will have any other
musicians from the freshmen class?n '
HOh, yes indeed! There are Imogene Long, Marie Martin,
Freda Weekley, Jack Gribble, Edwin Ferrell and Paul Edgar
who like to play the guitar. I shouldnlt wonder but what
they will form a team and appear on Tyler's radio station
when it is established. The station will be dubbed Station
ECHO. Orvan Keys and William Gorrell will install the equip-
ment, and Virgil Wise will help to build the station. Nettie
Headley will be the pianist.N '
USeriously, Mrs. Jumbo, don't you think these children
will get bored with always being gay and never getting serious
nOh, no, Jummie, you have the disadvantage of being in
the hall where you do not see much of their work. I watch
them constantly, and I see their serious work. To prove this
I know of several who want to become teachers -- Vivian Baker,
Wilma Fiber, Fred Gregg, Katherine Huff, Martha Pratt, Garnet
Kimble, Helen Wright, and Dorothy Tracy. Success to themlu
l nHave you any idea who in the class is striving for the
highest position in the country? For about l95O?U
NI have heard it discussed somewhat,H ticked Mrs. Jumbo.

nlt seems that Robert Lewis and Ormond Starkey will race to
see who will be president at that time. Alfred Traugh will
help them campaign because he expects to be the champion pol-
itician. I guess you will have to ask Helen Statler which
one Alfred intends to support. She intends to be a mind
reader so she'll be valuable to either one.N R t
I know the one who's going to fly the president-- ober
or Ormond--to Washington. Howard Newbrough, the foremost
aviator of America will do that. Robert Sands and Victor
Hickman will go along as his engineers,n replied Mr. Ju bo.
Won't it be a sad procession without any entertainment--
going from Middlebourne to Washington?n questioned Mrs. Jumbo.
nOh, entertainment will be previded,n assured Jummie.
UGroff Starkey intends to toot his horn triumphantly for
Ormond. Bobby Wildman will be the comedian who'll keep the
president in a good humor. Elmer Williams will go along as
the champion penny pitcher to help the president decide any
problems he may have. Robert Virden will be his companion.u
nln all their traveling they will never be able to attend
churchTEervices. What a shamelu M J R b d
at also is taken care of, rs. umbo. o ert assure
our future ministers, Frank Sherwood and Virgil Hickman, that
they could occupy the royal pulpit. Harley Underwood, Jr.
and Charles H. Spencer, Jr. are to be useful as the presi-
dent's travleing salesmen. He's also promised Leona Haught
the position of librarian in the congressional library, with
Edna McGinnis as her assistant. A more successful adminis-
tration could not be when Brady Eddy takes his place as bus-
iness manager, assisted by Joseph McCutcheon.n
NWhat is to become of Billie Rymer?n
xHe intends to go west.n
nDon't be so curious! Marie Nutter is the only one I
know who is going tonHollywood to be an actress. So figure
it out for yourself.
nJummie, aren't we going to have someone who can take
care of the County 4-H Camp and be the future County Agent?N
nYes, Mrs. Jumbo. John Crumrine is going to be our
County Agent and Gertrude Baker's ambition is to be a 4-H
Leader. Juanita Haught is going to teach the members how to
sew. Alva Doak will teach horse-back riding, and Warren
Franklin will have charge of the manual arts. The cooks will
be Bessie Smith, Winifred Mercer, and Saramae Moffitt. Evelyn
Hays will be the dishwasher. Arnold Lemasters will aid where-
ever he can if the girls stay away from him! Hayward Doak
will help wherever he can.n -
xYhere will this class meet again, Jummie, and when?n
n the new Tyler ounty High School building, of course.
It will be planned by Charles Watson, the architect, and the
crowd will be amused by the band in their new uniforms.n

The post graduate class of 1956 was organized on Novem-
ber 5,the first organization of a fifth year group since the
normal class of 1929. Class officers elected were: Francis
Hadley, presidentg Virginia Van Camp, vice-presidentg and
Willard Smith,secretary-treasurer. When organized there were
in addition to the officers the following students in the
class: Leota Burgbacher,Ida Darnell,Mona Fletcher, Ray Goff,
Bernard Jemlson, Gall Jones, Virgil Lawson, Emuel Kengus,
Mayne Smith, Virginia Spencer, Bonnie Mae Starkey, Julia
Stareher, Ellen Underwood, Louis Myers, Ruth Jackson, and
Arthur Ripley. Later in the year Pauline McMullen joined the
lany members of the class are taking commercial sub-
jects. They do a great amount of clerical work, help make up
the honor roll, cut stencils, and do special typing.
As this page goes to press on April 1, the post gradu-
ates are planning to present a three-act class play, 'Hot
Copy,' under the direction of Kiss Rena Tuttle. In the cast
are: Arthur Ripley, Ray Goff,Bernard Jemison, Willard Smith,
Virginia Van Camp, Bonnie lae Starkey, Ruth Jackson, Vir-
ginia Spencer, and Pauline lclullen. Following this play a
class party is to be held with each member entitled to bring
one guest. .
In the past few years, the number of students in the
post graduate class has steadily increased. This year the
students feel that they have accomplished much more by
organizing the class.

The 1935 football team certainly showed a remarkable
improvement over last year's season. The boys not only won
more games but also showed a better spirit in their playing.
Last year Tyler won only two games out of eight, defeating
Salem and Tannery this season she scored victories over
Pennsboro, Salem, and The Industrial School for Boys.
The big game of the year was played against Sistersville
on the Tiger's field. Since Sistersville is one of Tyler's
greatest rivals the boys fought harder than usual, but lost
in the end to the score of 15-6.
Pennsboro was handed a surprise when the Tyler lads
defeated them for the first time in football history, by the
score of 15-O. Tyler was victorious over another old rival
when she defeated Salem 7-6.
The game with Harrisville was a very exciting one, Tyler
leading at the half 6-O. Harrisville got a safety in the
third quarter and in the last five seconds of play scored a
touchdown and won the game 9-6.
A new opponent for Tyler this year was the Industrial
School for Boys which Tyler defeated 59-O. In the last game
of the season, which was played with Grantsville, the local
boys were held scoreless. Although defeated 19-O, Coach
Christie said that they played one of the best games of the

Although several of the 1955-56 squad will be lost to the
team when it resumes practice next year, we feel that they
will have a comparatively successful season. In the Inter-
class tournament the Sephomores were victorious over the other
classes which shows that in the next few years Tyler should
have a very successful basketball team.
Those lost to the team when the season opens next year
are: Eward Allen, Carolton Baker, Wendell Baker, William

MIDDLE ISLAND CI-IAPTEK
FUTURE FARMERS OF AMERICA
The aim of the Future Farmers of the Middle Island Chap-
ter is to practice brotherhood, develop leadership, encourage
thrift and bring farm boys closer together. To become a mem-
ber of this organization one must be a member of the vo-ag
class and carry a program of supervised practice.
Each year the organization has a plan or program that it
tries to follow which includes not only activities in their
agricultural instruction but also recreational.
Twenty-one Future Farmer members went on a camping trip
the first three days of August. The first day was spent in
setting up tents and unpacking the food supply. The rest of
the time was spent in swimming and soft ball.
The boys made their annual trip to Morgantown in October
They ranked sixth in poultry judging and placed under ten in
the other contests.
The chapter sponsored a party in November at the Tyler
County high school. The evening was spent in playing games
after which refreshments were served.
The annual mother, father and son banquet was held on
November l, 1955 at the United Brethern Church in Middle-
bourne. After a delicious chicken dinner, served by the
ladies of the church, the following members made short talks:
James Kelly, Edward Seckman, Braxton Freekxnd, and W. H. Way-
adviser. Short talks were also made by Mr. J. D. Garri-
Mr. Lloyd Gregg, Mr. S. R. Wood, Mr. H. H. Huff, and Dr.
Roy A. Olney, state adviser.
At the close of the banquet the following men were ini-
tiated into honorary membership: Mr. S. R. Wood, Mr. J. D.
Garrison, Mr. H. H. Huff, Mr. L. A. Crumrine, Mr. Clyde Gor-
rell, Mr. C. D. Eastman.
Braxton Freeland and James Sellers participated in a
Future Farmer radio program at Fairmont, West Virginia. Brax
ton gave a talk on his four years of Vocational Agriculture
James gave a poem entitled "Back Home in Arkansaw."
The members of the chapter bought l5O bushels of certi-
seed potatoes cooperatively. They were shipped to Ellen
and hauled by truck to Middlebourne. Approximately two
of fertilizer were bought cooperatively by the members
of the chapter.
The chapter presented a three act play Back to the Farm
on February 14, l956 and a matinee February 21, in the high

The Tyler Band
The band, directed by Wilbur W. Howard, has added much to our assembly pro-
grams and football games this year. They have made unusual progress, we believe
due to the stimulus of promised uniforms.
The Womans Club and Lions Club are sponsoring the purchase of the band uni-
fonms. It ie regretted that the uniforms were not ordered in time to use them
in the picture. As this page of the Echoes goes to prese,the plans are to place
the order for the uniforms as soon as the Lions Club guarantees the money which
it has promised to the fund. Four or five companies are submitting bids on var-
ious typos of uniforms.
Salem College is planning to sponsor a festival for school bands of nearby
communities. Sometime in May en all-state festival is to be held at Huntington.
Tyler plana to send the band to participate in each of these programs.

Different editorials are always used for these papers. Al-

THE 1936 'FYLEK ECHOES
Unlike many school yearbooks, the Tyler Echoes is pur-
chased by students from all the classes in school. In many
other schools the yearbook is the property of the senior
class, with nothing in the book of interest to any other
class. The Echoes, on the other hand,.contains things of
interest to the entire school and to all members of each
The Tyler Echoes of 1936 is the largest annual of the
new series to be printed up to this time. It contains more
pictures and cartoons than any of the previous ones. This
helps to make the annual more attractive and interesting.
All the pictures and lithographed material were prepared at
the school by the staff and mailed to Chicago where the copy
was photographed. The pictures that resulted were printed
on an off set press and sent back to the school where this
material was combined with the mimeographed pages and bound.
The cover was designed and cut from linoleum by Gordon
Nichols of the class of 1934. This block was then placed in
the school press and the impression taken directly from the

ECHOES FROM THE FA 5 T
After a person leaves school he reflects over the friend-
ships and good times of his school days, of the little inci-
dents that happened to make his time in school worth more to
him, of the trouble he got into, the teachers, his friends
and what the school has done for him. In the past twenty-six
years there have been 990 students graduate from Tyler County
High School. Graduates of this school have entered all dif-
ferent walks of life. Some are lawyers, doctors, engineers,
aviators, politicians, and teachers.
In the next few pages we have tried to bring to you what
the graduates think of their Alma Mater. Since it would be im
possible to reproduce letters from all the graduates, one per-
son from each class was asked to write a few words.
Class of 1910
The Class of 1910 holds the distinction of being the
first one to graduate from Tyler County High. Its members
consider it very outstanding in other respects. It gave a
good account of itself in the classroom and it was instru-
mental in the organization of such activities as the first -'
athletic teams, literary societies, and dramatic and musical
clubs. In addition, it furnished the faculty with many
original ideas and the principal with his wife.
One incident that amused the class was the attempt of the
writer, who is without any musical ability, to sing Sweet and
Low in a quartet. Needless to say, he sang neither "sweet"
nor "low,' whereupon the quartet was reorganized. '
I. O. Ash, Professor of Secondary Education, Shepherd State
Teachers College ' b
Class of 1911
The Class of l9ll was the first four-year class to be
graduated from Tyler High School, and each member of the class
continued beyond high school. 1 -
In the period of years since our Commencement, Tyler's
enrollment has increased from the original fifty to three
hundred and seventy-five. Buses were unheard of in our time,
and parents were either forced to move to town, or to board ,
their children with friends in Middlebourne.
The entrance ages have undergone a marked change. In
our class the ages ran between fourteen and sixteen, and now
many are freshmen at twelve or thirteen.

Fay Kirchner, teacher Tyler County High School, Middlebourne,
Class of 1912
You who now hold responsibility for publication of Tyler
Echoes must look out upon life somewhat at variance with the
viewpoint of an earlier period when the Class of l9l2 strug-
gled with the first Echoes of Tyler High. Certainly you do
look out upon and are soon to walk out into a vastly changed
world from ours. Would you picture a world in which high
school was new - an innovation? A county seat without elec-
tric line, railroad, improved highway, or paved streets, and
into which the first Ford car had just made appearance? When
to travel to Sistersville to solicit ads for the yearbook
meant a full day's trip? That was Middlebourne of our high
school days. .But they were glorious days as are yours, for
youth is not an age after all but a period complete and beau-
tiful always.f I salute you and charge you to hold it ever
so - sacred and loyal to its.high ideals.

" Class of 1915
A warm spot in my heart will always be reserved for the
Tyler County High School. For whatever degree of success I
may have attained, I owe a greater debt of gratitude to the
Tyler County High School than any other institution of learn-
ing. It bridged a seemingly unsurmountable chasm to a greater
degree of success to me as well as to scores of others who had
waited too long for its inception. Reminisences of student
days there are delightful, results of the work done there are
profitable, and my appreciation for it then, now and always,
unwavering. " if ' A

Twenty-two years since my graduation from Tyler High
have increased my high regard for that school. The excellent
or QTYTLER, ECHCDE,Sfi
instruction and school activities as well as the happy associ-
ations have been invaluable to me. '
Especially do I remember the literary society and the
many heated arguments we had which seemed so important to us
Mr. J. D. Garrison and Miss Georgia Perry were outstand-
ing teachers. The former, I remember for his kindness and
justice as well as fine teaching, the latter for her kindness
and inexhaustible patience.
Margaret Hervey, director of a kindergarten, Parkersburg, W.Va
Class of 1915
Memories of the Class of 1915 and my years spent in Tyler
County High School are most pleasant. As I look back it
appears that Messrs. Hill, Garrison, Yeardley, Groves, Bliss,
West, and Misses Parry, Sameth, Stillman and other members of
the faculty were deserving of sympathy, as well as commendat-
ion, for their patience and untiring efforts.
It was generally conceded that the educational standards
of the school, at that time, were not surpassed by those of
any high school in West Virginia.
May I never forget the swift happenings when four of us '
were in the chemistry laboratory without permission and with-
out supervision. Our experiments resulted in a terrific ex-
plosion, throwing into confusion an important teachers' meet-
ing then in progress. We four made our exits through the

Life in Tyler High was interesting, even in the Uhorsec
and buggyn days. Our class was always in the midst of thingsi
-- whether it was conventional school activities, outlawed
"socials" that only a few dared attend, political "coups" at'
literary meetings in which we elected our own officers and
came near ruining the society, or the "solicitation" of chick-
ens for a school supper that only the thoughtfulness of the
keeper of the town bloodhound kept from resulting in a real

1921-1936, fifteen years, yet uechoesn of happy high
school days remain. As is true with all classes, the climax-
ing event of our career at Tyler High was Com encement Day.
For us, that was an occasion of conflicting emotions: we
were proud to receive diplomas, yet reluctant to part from
our esteemed Principal and friend, Mr. Broadwater, from our
teachers and from each other. During intervening years our
paths have led far and wide, but the Class of 1921 shall ever
remain united in an expression of best wishes for Tyler County
Ralph Duty, U. S. Navy
Class of 1922
I wish to bring greetings from the class of '22 and also
our compliments upon the publication of this year's annual.
We like to feel that it is a tradition of the school which we
revived, for our class as juniors in 1921 published the first
Echoes after its discontinuation in 1916. -
While most of our members are strangers to the present
faculty and student body, I feel sure every one still main-
tains the deep love and respect for Tyler High which they had
while students there.
Mildred Owens, teacher, Ellsworth School, Middlebourne, W. Va.
Class of 1925 A
The members of my class really believed that Tyler was i
the best high school in the states All of our teachers were
exceptionally well trained, and many taught in colleges later.
Practically all students were interested in literary con-
tests and athletics. State championships were won in literary
events and in basketball contests among the smaller schools. '
Our best times were in class parties, school movies, club
meetings, and the athletic games. While the students took "
their studies more seriously then than they do now, I believe
we had more fun.
D. F. Arnett, principal, Greenbrier High School
Class of 1924
On behalf of the class of 1924 there is extended to the
Tyler County High School the best of wishes for continued
success. It is with the most profound sentiment that we re-
call the pleasurable days spent there and for that reason are
interested in its activities and achievements. We take this
opportunity to charge the present and prospective students
with the duty of preserving its memories, glories and tradit-
ions-that are imbedded in our hearts and minds.
Richard C. Moore, attorney at law, Parkersburg, W. Va.
Class of 1926
When the class of '26 had given the annual senior play,
the question arose as to how the money would be spent. The
majority of the class voted to use the money to finance a trip
to Washington for the whole class. Mr. Wood bitterly opposed
this plan, but the class was determined to carry it out.
After quite a lot of excitement the class finally compromised
and purchased a new curtain for the stage of the auditorium.
Looking back over this incident I can see where the trip
to Washington would have been a foolish way to spend the money
while the curtain has made a great improvement to the audi-
torium of Tyler High.
John Adams, teacher - Middlebourne, W. Va.
Class of 1927
The most outstanding memory of Tyler County High School,
and one that will always live with me, was the whole-hearted
spirit of friendliness and cooperation. Not only between
students, but with the faculty and student-body as well. May
this same spirit live as long as there is a Tyler High, to be
carried out with her alumni and spread as their contacts with
life are made.

change, the pleasant memories cultivated over years are dur-
cherished throughout life as among the brightest

I was drafted into that war.
The war of the innocent, the battle of horror
My arm is goneg I cannot find
My way aboutg I have lost my mind.
I have tramped through the lakes of gore,
Once living flesh but never more.
The bodies of men who died like dogs
Lay scattered around like slaughtered hogs.
Oh God, what awful sights I saw,
Of limbs and bodies and flesh in raw,
Which were blasted apart by the roaring guns
Manned by the Reaper's bloody sons
Ah, many men died for their countries' sake,
Their souls will never silence break,
Or tell of the horrors that they had viewed
Or describe the men the shells had chewed
And now in thls vault I lie at rest,
Oh God, lift thls burden from my chest,
Never again may the people fight
For the crave of money and the want of might
