won our affection, elevated our souls,

W'e longed lo hnd the road to fame,
But not a highway bore that name.
We thought to fame that there must be
A level path that we could see,
But euery road to which we came
Possessed a terrifying name.
We newer thought that fame might lurk
Along tlzat weary path called work,
But we thought we'd study hard and see
If that led to the road called "industry",
So we chose a road that was rough and dry
Ufhich went by the name of "Varina High."
We scurried down that road, dubbed as "rats,"
Nibbling at Latin, Algebra and such as that.
Though that year was hard and mental racking
We learned that in knowledge we were lacking.
In '22 as Sophomores, we traveled the road againf
Without us what would the School of Varina have been?
When we were tired of English, French and Mathmatics,
We always found cheer in Athletics.
Juniors we were that year in September,
Not the meanest class, we were only peppy, remember.
While we trod the rough road obeying regulations and rules
Others took shorter paths or business schools.
Seniors we're ending with gladness and mirth,
Each feels himself now of some worth.
We may not have won a place in the Sun,
But each one knows his task is well done.
The man who newer has to win his share
Of life's pleasures, burdens and cares
Never becomes a manly man
But lives and dies as life begaizj
But because we'fae taken this way
We hope to come to fame some day.

about these dignified ones. I suppose you,

Yet she never has taken Home Economlcsgs
that is strange, too, for all the rest of us girls
have. She just doesn't seem to take an interest

Margaret is so precise. ,
Margaret surely loves to talk, she brings
us all the news, especially about Rosylyn. '
We could never do without Margaret as
pianist, for she is the one upon whom we can
She is always willing to lend a helping hand

We understand she expects to take a business

become a very efiicient stenographer. '
FRANK YAHLEY i
Frank Martin Yahley, better known las
"Pet," especially by Thelma, is a Very quiet
boy who does not take much interest in Ath-
letics. He entered our class from Glendale
in our Junior year and he has gotten aldng
nicely with all his work. He makes very
good grades in Chemistry'-he continually
tries to break something in the laboratory, yet
it seems that he never succeeds. 1
As stated above he is quiet, we think that
he must find more truth than poetry in the
"A wise old owl lived in an oak, 1
The more he heard, the less he spoke, J
The less he spoke, the more he heard,
Why aren't we like that wise old bird in
We do not know what his profession will
beg it may be Working on a farm or probably
in a store of his own-at any rate we ,are
confident that he will not be a bachelor,Nbut
that he will have some one to help him at all
times. Frank, we wish for you greatest isuc-
cess in everything you undertake. i
james, better known as "Pruney," has been
with us for a long while, having started to
Varina in the first grade. At Hrst he appears
to be dignified but he is quite different, and
after you know him a while he is just as jolly
and friendly as you please. He studies when
it is necessary, but there are many other things
that he likes to do better. James has served
as President of the junior League and he has
also served very efficiently as President of the
Senior Class. He is always willing to try in
any literary contest and is a good talker, es-
pecially when it comes to getting ads for our
Annual. His interest in Athletics is shown by
the fact that he is Manager of the Baseball
Team and is also a good Basketball player.
WVe feel sure that there is a place for him in
the business world and hope that he may be
very successful in whatever work he chooses.
Rachel, one of our most reliable girls, has a
keen sense of humor, a great love for sports
and a certain amount of studiousness, which
help greatly in making her an all-round girl,
one who takes part in all school activities.
Rachel has a great ability for playing basket-
ball. She proved this by scoring the majority
of points in the games and by being the man-
ager of the team. She has an inexhaustible
supply' of energy and plenty of strength, for
she played in every game this year. In one of
our games, Rachel shot so many goals in the
First half, she was offered fifty cents for every
goal she shot in the second half.
Rachel is always carefree, hardly ever out of
humor, and has a friendly greeting for all. We
are sure that wherever she goes she will be
successful and win her way through all diffi-
culties by virtue of her exceptional ability to
do things. Combining sincereness, sweet dis-
position and a good sport you have Ray.
The Valedictorian of the class of 1925-we
need not say much more about Will. He is
always ahead of time in his lessons, especially
in Chemistry. While the rest of the class a1'e
working hard, in order to get their note books
in on time, Will is calmly resting, his work
having been handed in the day previous.
We often wonder why Will wears the class
ring of "'24" rather than that of "'25." Here
must be a good reason: we know if you want
to see Will, just go to Martin's store, for this
is where he spends most of his time. What
would Will do without Lola and his Coupe?
We feel that he will be successful in the fu-
ture, for he has gotten along so well in his
school work, and to him we wish the very
best of things in life.
Margie, who comes from the little burg of
Charles City, joined us in our Freshman year,
and she has proved herself to be one of the
most quiet but best natured members of the
class of '25. She never gets excited or angry,
and she always has a smile for every one.
Although being studious she is always ready
to have a good time and is willing to help
others have a good time, if nothing interferes
with certain nights.
If we understand correctly, Margie is par-
ticularly fond of Home Economics, in which
she is very eflicient. She has shown her skill
along this line by winning several prizes at
the county fair.
We think her plans are to make a house-
keeper for some worthy man, and we truly
hope she will have great success in Hnding
the man of her dreams.
Here comes Bernetta, the girl with laughing
eyes and curly hair. She always wears a
smile, is willing to help any one any' time and
is always ready to say a kind word to the
At first sight one would think Bernetta is a
very quiet lass, but, after you are with her a
short time your opinion changes, because she is
splendid company and as lively as any one
could wish. She is a very good conversa-
tionalistg she likes to start a conversation any
time, and especially during civics class.
We think she is wonderful, for when we
become excited and unreasonable she speaks
her little piece and calms the wild, wild bunch.
Bernetta is especially devoted to church and
Sunday School work. Her greatest ambition is
to be a missionary and go to China. We believe
she will succeed as a missionary, because the
experience gained in dealing with the heathens
of our class will help her greatly when she gets
in close contact with the unbelievers of China.
One of the latest rules is that a missionary can
not leave for a foreign land aloneg probably
this is the reason that Bernetta is so interested
in men folks, especially that Smith boy.
Well, best of luck to you, Bernetta, is the
wish of the class of '25.
How in the world will we ever be able to
part with our dear old pard, "Flee ?" Through
the four long years in which he has been with
us, Forrest has shown himself to be a prince
of good fellows and really the most sociable
and loyal chap we ever came across. These
traits coupled with his everlasting love for fun
or harmless mischief and his good looks have
given him a permanent place in all our hearts,
especially the fair sex.
Forrest is a "bearcat'l when it comes to
playing basketball, and we presume that this
is where he got the name "Flee," because he
is one of the quickest and most accurate of
forwards Varina ever had. His similarity in
swiftness to the proverbial flea and his won-
derful infiuence over the team of which he is
captain have enabled our team to win many
games and to "romp" all over the Community
team, a feat in which many' of our former
school teams failed.
Yet Forrest's accomplishments do not stop
merely at athletics for his keen judgment,
loyalty to duty and a sense of honor which few
possess have caused us to bestow upon him
the position of Business Manager of our
Annual. Forrest is an excellent public speaker
and he was chosen as one of the debators to
represent our school in the State contests. We
feel sure that Forrest will just naturally be
"darn good" in whatever he undertakes.
Madeline, or "Beck," is one of our most at-
tractive girls and Varina is proud of her. She
is an excellent student, very studious, yet not
a gringi. KBAblput Sf dclgck orhliriilcayvagltiernoon
one o ' ec is rien s wi as H at are
you going to do Sunday?" Madeline giyes a
funny' twist to her mouth, appears slightly
Hdgety and answers, "Oh, I've got a date."
That starts the class to wondering whether its
Tom Dick or Harry. Beck is fond of driving
diffefent kinds of cars, she may know the dif-
ference between a Ford Sedan and a Durant,
but we think she prefers riding in a Ford.
Madeline is one of the hustlers of Varina
High School. Her motto is: never put off
until tomorrow what you can do today.. Made-
line plays a great part in upholding the athle-
tic standards of Varina. She takes an im-
portant part in basketball and track. Madeline
is accused of having a "pull" with the profes-
sor. No wonder she gets her demerits erased.
Madeline is leaving a place in Varina that
will be hard to fill. We are glad to have
known her and we know that she will be
successful in whatever she attempts to do.
VVell, look what the cat brought in! This
well-favored and handsome young man pic-
tured herewith is none other than our friend
and classmate, Garland. He joined us in our
junior year after having spent some time in
john Marshall High School.
During his two years with us he has proved
himself a real friend and a man. His pleasant
smile has won him many friends, especially
among the girls.
Garland is a hard worker along certain lines

you may look for Garland to pop in at the
door. At times he is really speedy, after a
fashion, for when the class bell rings you hear
him yell, "Where's my book? Quick!"
We were actually surprised when Garland
got up on the stage one day and hurled a
genuine Patrick Henry speech at us, making
for himself the name of Varina's best boy
Garland is one of the best athletes who ever
came to Varina. His splendidly developed
body and quick mind have made him expert
in any branch of athletics.
We feel sure that he will be very popular
wherever he goes and we wish him good luck.
John, better known as "Buck," has been
struggling along with us all through high
school. He is a person who is always craving
something to eat, and we feel sure that his
"future," who ever she may be, will ever be
kept busy' trying to satisfy his appetite.
john has never taken any active part in
Athleticsg we think he is one who is more
interested in taking life easy. We know that
john is capable of holding a position in almost
any branch of athletics, but he pretends he
can't. The biggest reason we have found for
this is, that he takes advantage of the noon
recess when the other boys are out, and gets
in solid with the girls. john is a trifie noisy,
the heavy thump of his feet on the steps,
sounding as though a chair were falling down
them, always announces his approach.
Taking into consideration all of -Iohn's char-
acteristics, we find him to be a true friend, he
has won for himself a warm place in the hearts
of all his schoolmates and we feel sure that his
winning ways and continuous smile will gain
for him a prominent place in the world.
Virginia, our perfect little lady, comes to us
from Charles City. She has one fault, however,
which we all know she can not easily' over-
come. Nearly every day she may be seen
going to the mail box to mail a letter, and we
know that the important letter is addressed,
"V. P. I., Blacksburg.
Virginia can be really studious when she
wants to, but she is like the rest of the class-
not taken that way Very often.
"Ginnie," has proved herself a true friend
to all who know her. She is always ready to
take advice concerning what she should or
should not do, and she is also usually ready
for a good time.
Virginia is not only interested in "V. P. I."
and her class work, but gives much time and
thought to Athletics. She has filled the office
of Secretary and Treasurer of the Athletic
Association, played on the basketball team, and
is also taking an active part in the track events.
Virginia's high school career has been one
of which she will be justly proud in future
years, when she has attained the success we
expect of her.
I - -
Better known as "Rawski," came to our
school from Glendale, as a Junior. In the time
that he has been here he has proved himself
a true friend and classmate, by always being
the first to Volunteer in any work or play for
the advancement of the school.
Through his efforts along these lines he has
the distinction of being our best orator, a
valuable man in any line of athletics, the best
all-round boy in school, and because of his
literary ability, the honored position was given
him as Editor-in- Chief of this annual.
"Rawski" is very careful about the binding
contracts he makes with certain young ladies
in the Junior class.
We recommend Thaddeus as one of the most
promising students Varina has ever turned out,
and in whatever line of work he may specialize
we wish him the Best-o-Luck.
MARY GARLAND STONEMAN
When it comes to people who are good
natured and have sweet dispositions, Mary
Garland beats 'em all, and we do not wonder
that she has the reputation of being the hap-
piest member of the class. Who does not know
of Mary Garland's cheerfulness 'and her
ability of brightening up our darkest hours?
She always has a pleasant smile and a kind
word for every one.
Although she is not an athlete she more
than takes the place of a player in every game,
for you can hardly think of Mary' Garland
without thinking of her "Ford," as she is al-
ways willing to take her car and a crowd to
May fortune always smile on you and may
you ever be happyg you always remind us of:
"Chirps little Miss Laughg
v Why, I couldn't tell half
The fun I am having
This bright summer day.
I sing through the hours
I cull pretty flowers,
And ride like a queen
On the sweet smelling hay."
Mamie is very small in size, but her mental
capacity must be very large as she is the
Salutatorian of our class.
Mamie's kind and gentle ways have won
for her many friends. We notice the small
children love her dearly because she always
finds time to play with them. Now we all
know she is always ready to enjoy a good
joke, and she is always willing to take an
active part in anything that will produce fun.
Mamie takes a great interest in Home
Economics and we think in future life she will
make some lucky man a lovely little wife.
Good luck, Mamie, in whatever you under-
take, is our wish for you.
Wills, better known among his friends as
"Reddy," has been with us for a long time,
having started to Varina in the Seventh Grade.
Wills is going out for baseball and if he
keeps on as he has started we expect him to
make a great player.
Wills has proved himself a true friend and
classmate, and has also shown his ability to
sing. He is quiet and studious. His favorite
study seems to be Agriculture, and we think
he will settle down on a farm and live a life
of contentment and peace. We predict success
in whatever he takes up in life.
-THW -if ,
WVe are glad Willis has successfully piloted
himself through the long four years of hard
work with us, and we know he will make good
at whatever he undertakes to do.
In class he is a man of affairs, who looks on
life as "Strictly Business." But in a crowd
some say, "If foolishness measures the length
of life, Willis will be the second Methuse-
Our sincere wishes go with you, Willis,
and we hope that whatever you undertake as
your project, you will have great success.
Albert, or "Iack,,' the Sheik of Varina,"
came to us from Glendale.
While he belongs to the Hare family he is
not of the wild kind, and he is not disturbed
by the girls barking at him, as long as they
do not bite.
I know the Varina Faculty is tired of looking
at his face because he has not missed a day
since he started in our school. "jack" is a shin-
ing star in Chemistry and is very experienced
in causing explosions. We feel sure some day
"Jack" will be an expert chemist and make
Varina proud of him.
We, the Class of '25, are greatly indebted
to Rosylyn for her splendid ideas and sweet
disposition. She has proved a good friend and
a true classmate during our many years to-
gether. Rosylyn takes an active part in the
Athletic Association and Junior League, and
she has also been chosen as our best "all-
round sport." She is very fond of arguing,
especially with Mr. Baker, concerning Chem-
Rosylyn has shown us the truth in the state-
ment, "There is a time for work and a time
for play," for although she is fond of all kinds
of sports, she never leaves her work to play.
An old saying is: "Curosity kills a cat and
satisfaction revives it." Rosylyn keeps the
class dying with curiosity to know whose heart
she has tantalized. We do wish she would
tell us more of her love affairs.
For Rosylyn, we wish success in whatever
Isabelle, who is more often called "Izzy," is
one of Varina's jolliest girls. We all enjoy
being in her company, for she is ever ready
to tell some little joke or an interesting event
which had recently occurred-most likely on
Sunday evening, while out driving in the
"Baby Overland." If you stay around "Izzy"
for at least two minutes you won't miss hearing
a portion of her favorite song, "Charlie My
"Izzy's" favorite accomplishments are: eat-
ing, talking, playing basketball and getting out
of all the work she can. Isabelle is also an
excellent actress and she has entertained the
whole student body on different occasions. She
certainly can "sling" a mean i'lingo" when she
impersonates a "darky."
You are all right, Isabelle, your good habits
outweigh your bad ones, and to you we wish
good luck, eternal happiness, and f'Charlie My

1 my 5' PON going to my room at a hotel in New York, after having
traveled abroad, I found an invitation to a tea to be given
by Miss Isabelle Whitlock, a famous actress. At first only
the name was familiar, then the thought came to me that she
MQQQFT'-83, was a classmate at v. H. s. with pleasure tht invitation
was accepted and anxiously I awaited the time. Days seemed
months, yet Hnally the afternoon did come, and as I entered the room,
much to my surprise, I found other schoolmates were also present. So it
was a tea which gathered together the class of 1925.
At first the topic of conversation was New York, with its shows,
styles and other things of interest, but before long we began to recall
"Don't you remember when we were 'rats ?" asked Virginia.
'iVVhy certainly," I repliedg Hit seems as if it were only yesterday that
the sun was shining clear and the gentle breezes tried their best to lessen
the intense heat, as the twenty-eight young hearts, proud and happy,
entered the doors of V. I-I. S. to complete the task set before them."
"Myl Didn't the teachers have patience to drill us in the work?l'
This from lNIary Stoneman.
"They certainly did! I shall never forget the soul warming smiles
with which they welcomed us, and how they drilled us so we could beat the
upper classmen in our first debate."
At this time Margie, from the other side of the room asked, f'Who
were the teachers?" "Mr, Baker, Mr. Rice, Miss McCraw, Miss Shel-
bourne, and Miss Stonemanf' was the reply.
I 25 l
UI certainly would like to know Why Alice Smith, I-Iarold Cooper,
Thomas Cooper, Wesley Burnett and Elijah Throckmorton, left our
ranks ?,' asked Rachel. "They must have found other occupations they
liked better, anyway outside of teasing I think we spent an uneventful
term as Freshmen, and gladly we passed into our Sophomore year." VVe
were glad to know that Rachel remembered all her former classmates.
John, now came in from the dining room, I think, for he had a piece
of cake and a sandwich in his hands, "Weren't we something when we were
Sophs. But then I don't suppose we were any sillier than any others, do
"Didn,t we have a favorite song that year?" asked Bernetta.
"I should say so! You remember the day Miss Sutphin, who had
taken Miss Shelbourne's place, had us sing 'The Star Spangled Banner,'
before those teasing Seniors, after having studied it about three days for
"Mr. Baker certainly did like to blame us for everything that went
wrong. You know he told us we had too much hot air."
"I certainly would like to know how Forrest happened to be called
'Fleef Can anybody tell me P'
John, between bites of sandwich, answered, "I think it was because
he was so small and you know he could always slip around so easily. You
remember, of course, our famous Athletes started to work in our Sopho-
Again Rachel was thinking of her classmates. "We didn't lose a
single member that year-yes I remember now, for Norman Finnegan
dropped out, Hershel Carver moved away, and -."
"Mitchel Barlow thought he had better begin his work in the business
world," came from John, who always liked to interrupt. "So with our
class of twenty-one we finished our Sophomore year with few honors."
g "We were grown up young people in our Junior year, weren't we ?"
said our hostess, who had left the other guests for a few minutes. "You
know, we had three new teachers-Miss Stone, Miss Summers, and Mr.
Anderson-only Mr. Baker and Miss Stoneman returned from the year
before. Can't you hear Miss Summers now, telling us as we were the
biggest babies she had ever seen, and can't you see Mr. Anderson, who
was just so dignified, that our behavior shocked him P"
"There were a number of new pupils to enter that year," remembered
Bernetta. "Mary Clark took up her work in another school, but two
joined us from Montrose and eight from Glendale, making a total of
thirty-two. Helen Reed and Helen Vest moved away, Oscar Pierce,
Evelyn Whitlock, Edgar Frayser, Philip I-Iobson, Byron I-Iubbard, I-Iarold
Jester and Effie Love, decided they liked other things better than school
and left us."
uWe surely did learn what work was that year,', added lVIargie.
VVork always interested John, so he added, f'Yes we did for it was
debates, speeches and programs all the time, and then those wonderful
men of literature to think aboutfl
Bernetta put thoughts of hard work out of our heads by saying, "As
June rolled around there were twenty-three of us left, wondering what the
next June would find us doing, and wasn't our last school vacation the
shortest of all ?"
f'Probably it was to some," said lVIargie, "but I was anxious to come
back a dignified Senior, weren't you ?"
"That year," put in Rachel, 'ffound few changes on our roll, Frances
Vanderoff, for some reason did not return, Kate Dorton left us after a
few months, and Laura Guy went to business school after the first term to
finish her work there, aren't these all?"
UI-Iow about our faculty ?', asked Bernetta.
This time John spoke, "lVlrs. Dorey was added and Mr. Abernathy
took lVIr. Anderson's place, otherwise it was the same. But we had one
surprise from the faculty, the marriage of Miss Stoneman. It was a
surprise, but you know she talked rather queer one day in Civics class. We
were glad she was so happy, to us she always seemed that way.'l
"Talking about debates and speeches in the Junior year, we certainly
had them in our fourth year," recalled Virginia, who had been too busy
listening to talk much.
"Yes," I answered, "but I think we all were benefited by it, for we
had boys and girls to represent us in debates, public speeches and orations,
in different contests. Just think of honors won by members of the Athletic
f'Girls," our hostess interrupted, 'fcome now tea is ready."
"Now the days have passed that were the happiest for each one of
us, and we are now embarking on life's busy sea. lNIay these last voyages
be as full of happiness, brightness and good service as the last years at the
V. I-I. S.," rambled on Bernetta.
f'Let's finish our talk in the dining room," said John, who was becom-
ing impatient, "You haven't seen the things I have, or you would have
stopped talking long ago-we may eat now and not receive demeritsf'

7-v-T-slygg-w I-IILE visiting NewYork on a sight-seeing trip, I was wander-
ing down one of the streets when I came upon a tent. On
reading the sign-board I found that it was the home of an
CQSAHQSJDJ' Egyptian fortune teller. I had always wanted to know what
the future had in store for my friends and me, so I decided
i to go in and find out what had become of my classmates
On entering I am seated in front of a revolving globe which discloses
interesting panoramas of happenings in various parts of the world as it
revolves. At first the scenes are hardly distinguishable, but they soon
become clear. I see a beautiful country club with the golf links nearby.
A group of young people are standing together, and as they turn to move
away, Virginia Adams appears. She seems to be the center of attrac-
tion, even as she had been in the days of old when she went to school.
I remember that soon after leaving school Virginia had inherited a for-
tune and had begun to travel extensively with the idea in mind to "see
America Hrstf, She seems content to remain a favorite of society.
My thoughts are still of Virginia, our attractive classmate, when I
realize that the scene has changed. Virginia is no longer visible. In-
stead, there is an attractive cottage with all modern conveniences, seen
in the distance amidst a grove of oaks. There I see Margie Adams, no
longer a "bliss," going about her work, singing and smiling.
As the scene changes from time to time I see in a meeting of Congress,
Madelyn Becker as Virginia's first lady Senator, offering wonderful sug-
gestions concerning the work of the state and nation.
In the governor's office lVIargaret is happily performing her duties
as the Governor's secretary.
Rachel Mistr is seen in the gymnasium of Princeton University, going
about her work with happiness. She is one of the most famous of athletic
coaches of the day.
A sign-board above a large theater is drawing the attention of thou-
sands of people as it gives the picture of the worldls greatest actress, who
is none other than our beloved classmate, Isabelle Whitlock.
At a distance stands a large hospital around which a crowd of people
are standing. As the crowd departs the door opens-and whom do I see
there? VVhy, its Willis Throckmorton, the world's famous surgeon! I-Ie
has just completed an operation on the Governor of Texas. And who
is this wonderful nurse of Dr. Throckmorton who goes softly from room
to room in the hospital and relieves the agony of many suffering patients
with her expert care? Well, well, 'tis our old classmate, Mary Garland,
who has become head nurse for the Doctor.
Mamie Canfield is winning the hearts of many happy little children
as she stands before a large class of primary pupils, giving them a firm
foundation for future education and life.
Lo and Behold! An American lady, who is none other than Roslyn
McCann, is giving a spirited address in the House of Parliament. She
has taken the place of Lady Astor.
The globe continues to revolve slowly and brings in sight a magnificent
farmstead, which consists mainly of a large dairy. A strong, stately man
walks about giving orders to his workmen. It is John Nelson, who has
become one of the wealthiest dairymen in the state.
From the pulpit of a large cathedral Garland Osborne is seen, he is
a successful and beloved minister of a large congregation.
On the front page of the New York Times, of which Thaddeus is
editor, I see the photograph of Albert Hare. From the staring headlines
of the article, I gather that Albert has become the world's famous chemist,
as he aspired to be.
Frank Yahley is seen stepping into a beautiful Cadillac which is
standing in front of his place of business, a leading automobile establish-
ment. No doubt Frank is in a hurry to see his dear little wife and kiddies,
for he leaves a few orders in the manager's hands and Usteps on the gas."
A train has just pulled into the station. Out steps six feet two of
real man and his wise-looking little wife. The happy couple are Will
Beadles, who has become a great merchant, and his wife, Lola. They have
just returned from an extensive pleasure trip in Canada. Their honey-
moon, I presume.
At the feet of a great singer a large crowd of people sit spellbound by
the wonderful voice. It is our old classmate Wills Fussell.
In a meeting of the Presidents of all the agricultural colleges of the
nation, Forrest Hedrick is giving a striking speech of the work carried on
at Cornell University, of which he is the president. i i
Through the doors of the Supreme Court, james Childrey is seen
pleading an important case. I-Ie is a widely known and celebrated lawyer.
Slowly the scene disappeared and I could see nothing but the globe.
I then left the tent and went back to the street, satisfied that I had gained
the information I wished.

HE bells rang for the 7th period, the study period just before
English. Miss Summers came in and said, 'fEvery one get
out your English book and study. I want to have a good
lesson this afternoon for-." At that moment some one
knocked at the door and there was admitted-a stranger who
I had come to visit the school. He walked about the room

t The first impression made, he afterwards said, was that of the twenty
pupils, all of different types, different personalities and above all with dif-
ferent and very vague ideas and thoughts passing through their minds.
Picture to yourself these twenty pupils all in one room with the same
teacher, with perhaps the same kind of English book before them, but
their minds all working in a different direction and on a different line.
XVhile Virginia and Rachel were sitting together pretending to study
out of the same book their minds eye was most probably picturing the
same Technical Institution in the foot hills of Virginia, yet not of the
same little cadet. Why don't they think of their own school and let the
Will Beadles was glancing down at his hand on the desk, his eye finally
resting on the ring which rates him a year ahead of time-a 1924, instead
of 1925 ring. His thoughts didn't stop there, for the expression upon his
face told that he was thinking of the owner. Now all this time he should
have been studying his English.
VVhen the stranger glanced at a little light, curly haired girl by whose
description we recognized Bernetta Wagner, he wanted to know why she
rolled her eyes around at the girls so much, was she practising before she
attempted to roll them at the other sex?
He said when he looked at Thaddeus, he had a cross-word puzzle
slipping it from under his book and was writing out a word about a foot
long. It is certainly lucky that Thaddeus is long winded else he would
never be able to manage some of the large words in his vocabulary.
John Nelson was keeping an eye on the stranger while Margaret
Cousins was scolding him for going into her lunch and eating half her
pie and cake. He was wise enough to leave her half of it. Margaret must
carry a very attractive lunch or box, l don't know which, for she often
Hnds notes which a certain Sophomore leaves in there for her, or some
peanut hulls. The box attracts too much attention. This all takes up time
which should have been put upon other duties.
James Childrey and Garland Osborne, impressed the stranger as being
'fsheiksf' for James had a girl's blue scarf and Garland a red one, which
belonged to-well, you can guess the rest. They were thinking of these,
l mean the owners, rather than the English lesson, as usual, although the
stranger was quietly eyeing them.
lndustriousness describes Margie Adams, but studiousness is a side-
track from which she slides sometimes, and this was one of those times.
A party was being planned for that night and the seventh period was an
excellent time for her to think of it and decide what she should wear.
Forrest Hedrick was sitting there alone, manfully thinking why it was
that people were always so anxious to be the first one to meet a stranger
in the neighborhood or at school. He finally settled it by recalling his last
VVhile the various thoughts were passing through the many minds,
Albert Hare was pondering over a chemistry problemg finally he, with
the help of Frank Yahley, worked it out smoothly. l believe Jack was
thinking about being able to be the Hrst to answer when Mr. Baker called
for the answer in class, rather than for the desire to get the problem, for
he likes to be first. Jack put up the problem while Frank sat back. Frank
should not have been so easy with him.
At this time the stranger walked over to Miss Summers' desk and
started talking to her.
lt certainly was lucky for VVillis Throckmorton that the stranger did
move, for he couldnlt see him so well when he turned around to' talk to
lzzy Whitlock and Madeline Becker, he often does this, you know. He
was just telling them for about the thirteenth time that he liked the fifth
period better than any of the others. They thought that not at all unusual,
when they found that Elizabeth Perkins sits behind him during that period.
Madeline replied that she liked the school all right, but it was much more
pleasant to borrow a certain Ford Sedan and go to Richmond during school
or e lAH9 or S
hours. Isabelle Was listening to all that, While chewing her gum. She
thought she would put in a Word too so she said, "I-Iumph! just give me
a Baby Overland or Charlie's Desert Snorter and I would never dream of
Margie stepped out and rang the bell for the last period to begin
and Wills Fussell said out loud, "Gee, I Wish this was the bell to go home."
Mary Garland Stoneman, the mischief maker of the class, cried out,
"Constance can Wait another period before she gets the seat on the truck
you are going to save for herf'
Miss Summers arose and Walked to one side of the room when the
last bell rang. She called the class to order and said, "We have with us
today Mr. Anderson, who would like to talk to you about ordering your
class rings. I don't think any of you know your lesson any Way, unless
Mamie does, for she was the only one who kept quiet last period. So We
will take the same lesson for tomorrow." They all clapped, even Mamie
did, for she had not been studying-she had been cutting out some PAPER
DOLLS. You can be quiet While doing that, you know.
So now, dear friends, you can see Why all these Seniors have such intel-
ligent faces. Q .

Dorothy Dew, Walker Peers, Edward Guy, Jr., and Paul Schultz, again we had
some new members, from Glendale-Thelma Perkins, Alene Hobson, and Beatrice

We again have two members on the basketball team this year, Raymond NIcCann

The joyous three months of vacation rolled by quickly. School started
again, we being Sophomores. After every one was greeted, we noticed
with regret the absence of one of our classmates, Margaret Dew, who
had moved to Richmond. But to take her place, and also to enlarge our
class, we received five girls from Glendale, and Grace Waring, Raymond
Twynham, Stanley Morawski and Barbara Shaw from other schools, Miss
Stoneman, now Mrs. Oliver, being our advisor.
This year we have worked hard, fortunate not to lose but one member,
Raymond Twynham, one of our best workers, who decided to leave us and
go to work.
Next year We all hope to be juniors, and to accomplish our goal We
must "Jog On."

'f-TRS? N a bright September morn in 1924, We, the Freshmen of '24 and '25,
began our High School career. We were thirty-three in number, and
all were happy to think of our really being in High School.
It took some time to become used to high school studies as the
subjects seemed very strange, nevertheless, We did not give up hope,
and before long we found that We were acquainted With our studies,
classmates and teachers. Although We found high school more difficult than We
had expected, we did our best and with the aid of our much beloved teachers, Miss
Summers, Miss Stone, Mrs. Oliver, and Mrs. Dorey, we enjoyed our work and got
along very nicely.
Before we had hardly become acquainted, Lillian Zahn, one of our brightest
classmates, left us to go to West Point. Later in the session Herbert Bottoms left us.
We missed them both very much.
The Freshman class has some promising athletes as is shown by the record made
this year by some of the members.
However, we must keep quiet and keep on studying for we are "Rats,' and should
not leap too high at first, but we look forward to the happy month of June in 1928.

Home Economics has been looked upon as a duty rather than a
profession. Its importance has begun to be realized in the last few years. Hence
the rapid development in providing training along these lines.
The department at Varina High School was organized in 1919-20 with inadequate
room and equipment. The growth has been marked and with the addition last year
of another room and more equipment the department has been able to render an even
greater service toward training the girls along the lines of home management, food
principles and preparation, clothing, costume design and home nursing.
The principals taught in these subjects tend to develop in the- girl an appreciation
of the duties of the home maker and of the dignity of all work in the home, to show
the relation of the home maker to industries outside the home, to teach the respon-
sibilities of the home maker to her community, and, finally, to teach. the girl, as an
individual, to appreciate and to meet her responsibilities to herself and to her com-
The Cafeteria, which was started this year by the Community League with the
co-operation of the School Board, is under the direction and management of the Home
Economics Instructor and girls. This gives the girls training in the preparation and
serving of food on a rather large scale. By doing this the girls gain valuable training
and the children have the privilege of enjoying hot lunches.

fsfsxfsi to the passing of the Smith-Hughes Act in 1907 the expenses of
operating the department are paid largely by the Federal and State
funds-the county, at present, paying only one-third.
This department is making agriculture more efficient by offering courses in Plant
Production, Horticulture and Rural Engineering, Animal Husbandry, Farm Manage-
ment and Shop Work. Instruction in these courses is given in the class room, and
laboratory, in addition to these, field trips are taken so that the students may study
farm problems under existing conditions. The home project, a vital part of each
year's work, is carried out by each individual studentig this enablesthe boy, with the
help of the instructor, to put into practice the information gained in the class room.
Service by the department has been rendered to the community by selecting and
testing seed corn, pruning demonstrations, identifying and giving control measures for
plant and animal diseases, recommending most efficient and economical rations for live
stock and fertilizers for plants, testing soil for acidity with recommendations for its
correctness, and testing milk.
If additional equipment and room are secured the department will be able to
render an even greater service and thus become a more vital factor in the community.
The primary object of the department is to reach and train the farm boy for his
future vocation, thus making him a more successful farmer and of more value to the
community in which he lives. But do not forget that the department stands ready to
help each farmer with his problems-call on us if we can be of any service.

duties we give a brief explanation.

When the League IS organized, it automatically comprises the
entire high school student body. The following officers are elected every three months:
President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Pianist, and Censor. Meetings of
the League are held twice each month. Business concerning the welfare of the school
and student body is discussed and then a program is rendered by some of the classes.
The Athletic Association, which is an important part of the Junior League, em-
braces those students or members of the faculty who have paid their annual fee, which
is two dollars. This association also has semi-monthly meetings, at which business
dealing with the athletic welfare of the school is brought up, and a program is given
At the beginning of the session a contest was arranged to increase interest among
the classes by means of competition. This system seems to be very successful, as each
class tries to surpass the effort of the class before in giving a program.
We sent two delegates to. Williamsburg to represent our League in the State
Convention. Another convention was held in Richmond, Thanksgiving Day, for the
Junior Leagues of the State. At these conventions we found that our League ranked
high among other similar organizations in the State.
The League has been very' active in its literary work. Debating, public speaking,
oratorical, reading and spelling contests were held. The debating team consists of
Gertrude Drinker and4Forrest Hedrick. These debators made a creditable showing
in a practice contest with Atlee, an account of which is given elsewhere in this book.

The value of Captain Hedrick to the team is shown by his score of one
hundred and fifty-four points during the season. Manager McCann, at all times dis-
played excellent floor work and accounted for many goals, while Childrey, Fussell, and
Osborne could always be depended upon With good team Work and general play.
Throckmorton, S. Fussell, Hubbard and others developed rapidly, playing good

ARINA started the 1924-'25 season with a rush, defeating Toano on our
court with a score of 35 to 1. Both teams were new and it was
evident that much practice would be needed to develop a well rounded
' as O team. -
The next game was played against Manchester High School.
' ' We won with a score of 37 to 12. ln this game the team showed
much improvement, featured by good shooting of all, especially Hedrick.
On November 6th, Varina played Atlee on the Atlee court. This game proved
to be a thriller throughout. Varina held the long end of the score at the close of the
first half, Hedrick and McCann starred for Varina. But Atlee came back strong,
finally winning, 22-16.
On the afternoon of the 11th of November, the hardest fought and fastest game
of the season was played on the home court with Highland Springs. The game was
close throughout. Featured by good passing and difficult shots by both teams. In this
game McCann, Osborne, and Childrey played a good defensive, while Hedrick and
Fussell kept the opponent's defensive guessing. By a lucky shot Highland Springs won
in the last few seconds of playing-Winning 25-23.
When We met Manchester High School for a second game on their court, they
showed a complete reversal of form, uncorking puzzling passing and shooting, defeat-
ing the locals with a score of 24-14. The absence of Captain Hedrick handicapped
the work of the team.
The game against Toano on their home court was by no means a walkover.
They presented a much improved team. Both teams guarded closely as the score shows.
The strong offensive of McCann, Throckmorton, and Childrey, enabled us to win
with a score of 18-9.
ln the second game with Highland Springs our team seemed unable to get together.
Consequently we were forced to take the short end of the 23-10 score. The opponents
guarded closely at all times, forcing our men to make unsuccessful shots.
On January 20th we met Atlee on our home floor. The first half was close, with
Varina slightly in the lead. Early in the second half our offensive ran up a score which
Atlee was unable to overcome. The close guarding of Osborne at the Stationary
position, the shooting of the other members and the flashy passing proved the undoing
of our opponents to the tune of 42-14.
The last game of the season was played with Dinwiddie in Petersburg. Osborne,
our stationary guard, was missing in the line-up. Our team was unable to get together
and stop the offensive of our opponents, who soon gained a safe lead. Both teams played
hard, but We were unable to break through their strong defense. When the final
whistle blew the score stood 23-10 in favor of Dinwiddie.
During the entire season, in every game, our team fought with the "Never say die"
spirit, and our opponents were always true sportsmen. Altogether we think the
1924-'25 basketball season a success and We heartily wish greater success to future

M3 of our sturdy band of athletes was drawn to track and field stunts.
'Q if But many of the succeeding days were anything but fair, so enthusiasm
f SX., , Q waned among the majority. However, a few got out as soon as the
weather cleared and began to train. Baseball claimed a few of these.
and it looked as if we were not going to have a track team. Such
thoughts were uppermost in the minds of the squad, and as they passed through the
school hall they began to take notice of a bulletin on the board which gave details of
the County Meet. This notice served to inspire several to join our ranks, and we
finally got together a bunch of runners.
But, owing to Work, baseball or something, only one or two men trained. The
whole squad suddenly received a jolt on Tuesday just after the Easter holiday, when
the coach called us together to run off preliminaries before the county meet. All of
us had known that the meet was to come off, but we didn't think it was so soon. It
was Tuesday, April 1-lth, only two days before the county contests. When the men
got through that day they all felt and acted like a squad of concrete motorcycles.
Every man swore he would not be able to run Friday. We felt that Varina was
on the verge of defeat. The next two days the gang was drilled hard, but the muscles
still squeaked and screamed.
Friday came. We all went down to the basement to get rubbed down. At this
time one of our members gravely suggested that if Varina made any showing that
day, the bunch should receive gold medals or D. S. C.'s, or something significant of
what they had been through.
Well, the meet started in good time. The first thing was the 100-yard dash, and
when one of our men came first and another third, why, we forgot all about pain and
linament. As Varina started, so she went all the way through the meet, making good
in every event, either with a first and second or a second and third place. When the
final count was made, Varina was found leading with a score greater than the sum
of her two nearest opponents.
In literary events, Varina was exceedingly successful, winning in everything-
debating, public speaking, reading and poem. The only thing in which we failed
to score highest was the short story, which was won by Westhampton. Of all the
ribbons given in the County Contests, Varina won one-half.
The week following the County Meet, we went to school filled with anticipa-
tions of a trip to Blacksburg to participate in a State-wide Athletic and Judging Meet.
The coach had promised that if we made good in the county meet, we would go to
Blacksburg, so we were sadly disappointed when we were informed that because of
lack of funds only four men would be able to make the trip. Those making the trip
were Forrest Hedrick, John Nelson, and Raymond McCann, who entered the Judging
contest. These three, with Carl Hickam, made up the track team.
When we consider the fact that thirty agricultural high schools participated in
the events, we may truly say that our men did good. Forrest took first place and
Won a gold medal in dairy cattle judgingg Raymond McCann Won second in the mile
run and received a silver medal. John Nelson and Carl Hickam also did Well. Our
relay team came fourth. In the end Varina's score was 6, and we placed eleventh.
So next year if Varina takes up a complete team and each man does as Well as he did
this year, and we don't get the cup-well, somebody will be sorely disappointed. It
would be well to say here that if this little lVlcCann fellow trains a little more and
keeps on with track work as he has started, he'll make the athletic World sit up and

Athletics are getting to be an important item in school life, as is shown by the
number of students in both high school and grades who made efforts to Win medals.
The requisites for winning a bronze medal were to pass three standard tests, such as
running the 100-yard dash in a given time, running other dashes, throwing the javelin,
chinning the pole, broad jump, or other events. To get a silver medal the student
must come up to five of these standards and seven for a gold medal. Of course, there
are different standards for the grade pupils.
Two gold medals were won by high school students and ten by grade students.
Two gold medals were Won by high school students and ten by grade students. In

of the students surpassed the standards which just shows that We have some good

THE JAZZ BOYS AND THE MAGICAL BRAUER
"That Quartette," the Jazz Boys from Richmond, gave an entertain-
ment November 19, for the benefit of the Athletic Association. Magical
Brauer was with them and gave some of his tricks which made one's hair
stand up. Any one who missed this, certainly missed a good entertainment.
The Band gave a minstrel show on November 21, which we are sure
every one enjoyed. The preparations were kept secret, and When the
curtain went up we were all surprised to see that half of the men were
dressed as women. Mr. Butler was especially good in his red bandana
dress. Buck Garrett was stuck with a pin and then sang, "It Ainlt Gonna
Pain No Mo'." The different characters were introduced as different
people in the Community. Clever jokes were told on some of the people
of the neighborhood, which everyone enjoyed.
BLACK CAT NIINSTRELS
On January 23, the Black Cat Minstrel was given for the benefit of
the Junior League. From the name one might think that all of the per-
formers were black but really only five were. lt was at this minstrel that
Johnnie Hall was named the "Sheik of Varinaf' Although the crowd was
small, the program seemed to be enjoyed by every one present.
"The Tom Thumb Wedding"
"The Tom Thumb Wedding', was given by the Primary Grades of
Varina High School on February 26, at the regular meeting of the Com-
munity League. A large crowd was present.
Just before the ceremony Clara Mistr and Emma McCabe sang
"Loves Old Sweet Song." Clara Mistr sang "Silver Threads Among the
Gold." Martha Wagner sang "I Love You Truly," accompanied by
Caroline Wills on violin.
The characters taking part in the wedding were:

The bride was beautifully gowned in white and carried an arm bouquet
of lilies of the valley. Her veil was caught with orange blossoms. The
outburst of enthusiasm that greeted the little ones in the attire of their
elders is scarcely imaginable-really the wedding was greatly enjoyed.
On March ll, there was a meeting of the Home Demonstration Club,
after which the Junior Class gave a Silver Tea, which was served in the
Home Economics dining room.
The Junior Class had a GREAT time all day making delicious sand-
Wiches, candy and all sorts of good things.

CONTEST WITH TATLEE HIGI-I SCHooL N
The debating team from Atlee High School came to Varina March
13th to debate on the state subject: Resolved, That the State of Virginia
amend its constitution so as to enable it to issue fifteen million dollars in
bonds to rebuild the State institutions of higher learning to meet the
demands of the twentieth century.
Atlee upheld the affirmative with Maude Bowles and Rudolph Mundi.
Varina upheld the negative with Gertrude Drinker and Forrest Hedrick.
There was to be a public speaking and reading contest with Atlee the
same evening, but the Atlee representatives failed to appear. However,
our public speakers, Rosylyn McCann and Garland Usborne, and our
reader, Constance Foxall, rendered their selections and parts with credit.
Professor Handy, from the University of Richmond, gave a splendid
criticism of the program. Atlee wanted to have judges, so Professor
Handy and two others acted that part. .
The judges decided in favor of the affirmative, but the critics stated
that there was little difference between the arguments presented by both
Refreshments were sold by the Senior Class.

On March 20th, the Band was one year old and therefore celebrated
its birthday with a supper in the Fair Building. Judging from the crowd,
everybody in the community must have been there.
Mrs. Geo. Drinker, chairman of the committee, was appointed to see
about arranging the supper, and with the help of others in the community
the supper was a great success.
On the center table was a large white cake, with HVarina Band"
written on it in pink. ln the center of this cake stood one large pink
candle. The Band played during the supper, after which an orchestra
from Richmond played for the young people to dance. This part of the
program was particularly enjoyed by all.
Tuesday, March 31st, the Seniors gave a Social for the benefit of the
Annual. The Samis Grotto Bug Band played for entertainment. There
was a fortune teller who made some thrilling predictions for the future.
One of the Home Economics girls made a cake and we had a "cakewalk."
Refreshments were sold from booths decorated with crepe paper and
about sixty dollars was cleared.
HE wedding of Miss Evelyn Victoria Meredith, of Gloucester, and
Reginald Heber Nelson, Jr., of Richmond, took place Wednesday after-
noon, November 26, at 3:30 o'clock, at "Woodside," Gloucester
County, with the Rev. F. W. England, of Charlottesville, officiating.
The Wedding March was played by Mrs. J. B. Gray, sister of
the bride, and just before the bridal party entered, Mrs. F. W. Eng-
land sang "At Dawningf' The house was artistically decorated with Southern smilax,
palms, yellow chrysanthemums and cathedral candles. The bride, who was given in
marriage by her father, wore an ensemble suit of dark blue cloth and bengaline silk
and a hat to match. Her flowers were a corsage bouquet of Bride's roses. The matron
of honor was her sister, Mrs. Camillus F. Eason, of Hickory, Va. She wore a gown
of black chiffon velvet with gold trimmings and carried a shower bouquet of yellow
rosebuds and lilies of the valley. The bridegroom had as his best man John A. Mere-
dith, a brother of the bride, and the master of ceremonies was J. B. Gray.
The bride is the daughter of W. L. Meredith and a granddaughter of the late
Miles Cary Meredith, who served in Company A, Twenty-sixth Virginia Regiment.
Mr. Nelson is the son of Mr. and Mrs. R. H. Nelson, Sr., of Richmond, and a
grandson of the late Reginald Heber Nelson, who served in Captain John Lamb's
Company of Charles City Cavalry. After a motor trip South, Mr. and Mrs. Nelson
are residing near Richmond.

The historic home of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Stoneman, "Varina-on-the-James,"
was the scene Tuesday, December 23, at noon, of a quiet wedding, when Mr. and
Mrs. Stoneman's daughter, Miss Marian Purvis Stoneman, was married to George
Lyles Oliver, of Henrico County. The ceremony, which took place in the drawing
room before an improvised altar of evergreens, was performed by Rev. John Scott,
The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, had as her only attendant
her sister, Miss Elizabeth Stoneman, as maid of honor. William L. Oliver, of Nor-
folk, brother of the bridegroom, was best man. The bride, who was attired in an
ensemble suit of brown Bolivia cloth, trimmed with fur, and with accessories to cor-
respond, wore a corsage of Ophelia roses. The maid of honor wore a gown of smoke
blue satin crepe and carried a bouquet of Columbia roses.
Immediately after the ceremony, luncheon was served to the bridal party, which
included only members of the two families and a few friends. Later Mr. and Mrs.
Oliver left for a Northern trip. They are living at the home of the bridegroom in

To give a sketch of what profession or part in life they are taking,
we shall begin with the class of 1917, the year Varina became an Accredited
Only one from this class is at present teaching, this is Miss Ethel
Beavers. Those entering business or taking up a profession, are: Misses
Ruth Fortna, Marion Garnett, Salena Beasley and Virginia Nelson.
Misses Margaret Haycox fnow lVIrs. Conwayj, Elsie Fiese CMrs.
Williamsj, Evelyn Rennie CMrs. Stonej, and Elizabeth Nliller CMrs.
Aigner, entered the bonds of matrimony. Mr. Conway is also teaching
at Manchester District High School.
The class of 1918 had only three members-Mr. John Jester, who
has launched on a business career, was recently married and is living in
Richmondg Miss EstherCDorey Mrs. Beazleyj, and Miss Iiavelon Dupuy
QMrs. Norman I. Iohnsonl, who are married.
The class of 1919 also had only three members, all three of these were
girls. Miss Davis is teaching in Southwest Virginia, While Miss Lillian
Redwood fMrs. Davenportj, and Miss Emma Wade QMrs. Benjamin
Harrisonj are married and still in our community.
Class of 1920 were eight strong with only two boys. Miss Ethel
Hedrick, Secretary-Treasurer of Alumni Association, Miss Dorothy Van-
derolf and Miss Naomi Kirby are teaching and doing splendid work. Ethel
is still with us, teaching the Fifth Grade. She can't leave old Varina.
Misses Marie Fortna and Jeanette Kirby are successful business women.
Sanford Alexander says, "There is no place like home," and is staying there
at present, while Harry Haycox and Miss Inus Hickam heard the sweet
toll of the wedding bells. Inus is now Mrs. Dave Fletcher.
The classes gradually increased in number. The Class of 1921 had
nine members. Miss Elizabeth Stoneman is at school taking training in
Social Service. bliss Byrd Nelson and Miss Catherine Dew have become
successful teachers. Byrd is teaching Home Economics in Richmond.
Benjamin Harrison and Franklin Bernheisel are progressing in the Busi-
ness World. Two of this class decided that home was the best place after
all-Alfred Mistr and Miss Gertrude Barlow.
One of the most interesting events of this class and in the history of
Varina, is that of the marriage of Miss Jessie Kesler, of this class, and
Randolph R. Harrison, President of Alumni Association, also of this class.
They recently built a nice little home near the school and are getting on
The Class of 1922 carried away the lucky number, thirteen. This
class possessed three intelligent teachers-Miss Aline Timberlake, who is
teaching Home Economics, Miss Helen Rood, who is teaching at Central,
and Miss Blanche Henderson, who is in Goochland County. Harry Bar-
low, Robert Mann, Channing Glen and Miss May Patterson are very
active in the business world. Miss Mary Martin CMrs. Taylorj, Miss
Estelle Fussel CMrs. Snellj, and Miss Ellen Strath QMrs. G. Banksj, are
married. They could not be separated from each other and even now you
will see the three little homes close together in the vicinity of Central. Miss
Marion Lanham CMrs. Brittonj, Lacy Hedrick and Russell Hill are
also married. Marion and Russell are still in our community and Lacy
is a business man of Richmond.
Eight of the fifteen from the Class of 1923 are engaged in business.
These are: Miss Gladys Fisher, William Lanham, Miss Ruby Patterson,
Charles Jefferson, Randolph P. Harrison, Richard Fussell, Miss Catherine
Bernheisel, and Nliss Lorraine Johnson. Three turned to teaching: Misses
Nettie Eberly, Cecile McCollister and Sallie Brackett. Nettie is at Glen-
dale, Cecile is at Sandstone. All are doing fine work. Misses Hattie
Childrey and Olive Hall are studying hard at school, Hattie at Harrison-
burg and Olive at Fredericksburg. The two twins, Alvin and Edwin Mistr,
could not be separated, so their mother kept them at home.
The Class of 1924 ranked nineteen in number. Five of them are
at present at college. William Atkisson, Charles Whitlock, two insepar-
able friends, and Miss Doris Rathein are at William and Mary. Clarence
Crouch is at the University of Virginia, and Berkley Fussell is at the
V. P. I. in Blacksburg. Miss Isabella Hall is studying at Richmond Busi-
ness School, to become a business Woman. Miss Marie Baughman is
studying and teaching music.
Seven from the class are taking part in business affairs: Benjamin
Hubbard, Miss Thelma Goodman, Miss Esther Hines, Miss Ruth Mur-
phy, Miss Gertrude Throckmorton, Orville Frick and Miss Elma Fussell,
all Working in Richmond. There were some from this class who stayed
at home, they are: Misses Lola lXfIartin, Ruby Durrett, Gladys Davis, Rosa
Barnett and Mabel Drinker, Vice-President of Alumni Association.

Ullbz Relation nf Qibemistrp tu Qgtitulture
V'LFf3fX'fq-765 lNCE the advent of man from the savage state, agriculture has been an
im ortant f ctor in hu an life. The human race ever since then has
.e 9 -76 P a m
been directly dependent upon products derived from forest and field.
Qi Agriculture was, and still is, the basal art, the fundamental science and
the essential factor in all life. lt is the most ancient and honored of
N99 all vocations, rich in possibilities during the past, and even more so at
the present, when the help of Natureis greatest scientists, the chemist, has been incor-
porated. Therefore, it is obvious that that interest should be manifested by all when
the Relation of Chemistry to Agriculture and Forestry is mentioned.
This is an age of advancement. Anything for the promotion of efficiency is wel-
comed by all industries, especially agriculture. Chemistry plays an exceedingly impor-
tant part in all industries of modern civilization. Naturally, we can readily see the
inestimable value of the service rendered agriculture and forestry by chemistry.
Food, clothes and building materials are three fundamental factors of the great
population of America. Without the guiding hand of the chemist, maintenance of
the increasing multitudes of people would be literally impossible. Soil, the basis of
these necessities, would become exhausted were there no artificial way of supplying nu-
tri-ment for the plants. However, Nature provided for this by allowing chemistry to
become highly developed. When the population increased and the farming area de-
creased, the chemist showed restoration of the fertility of all soils by artificial means
was possible and how the unavailable supply of plant food in the soil could be tapped.
Chemistry alone made possible the analysizing of soils, so that deficiencies in any of
the necessary elements could be corrected. Chemistry helped in the study of plant food
requirements of various plants and ways of supplying these requirements economically.
The various chemical researches of the soil began over a century ago, but only in
recent years has any great increase in quality and yield of products been shown. How-
ever, now that the farmer is helped by the chemist, his yields are greatly increased.
During recent years chemistry made the manufacture of highly available and con-
centrated fertilizers so widespread and economical that practically any farmer in the
country can purchase and use a certain amount with profit. The chemist, indirectly,
taught the farmer what his plants require, what is deficient in the soil and what element
it would be most practical to use. He showed that out of the eighty elements occurring
-E ff' e A
in nature, only thirteen are used in the growth of plants. Only three of these are
required in large amounts, these being phosphorus, nitrogen and potassium. Since all
soils do not have the same deficiencies, the chemist has made it possible to secure any
of the three in large quantities and in different degrees of availability. The chemistry
enlightened farmer can restore and build up the fertility of his soil annually with
diminutive expense. Chemical or commercial fertilizers are very necessary to farmers
of the present time, so it is important that analysis of fertilizer should be reliable and
true. The chemist regularly tests different brands and prevents any fraudulent fer-
tilizer from finding its way to the market. It is very important that th: farmer gets
good fertilizer, as food for the increasing multitudes must be produced on the diminish-
ing farm lands.
In the western part of our State, Virginia, there are vast deposits of limestone.
Apparently'the land of that region should abound in lime. But the opposite is true.
C1411 the available calcium constituents of the limestone have been dissolved out hy
exposure to waterl. The same happened to the lime of the soil. Naturally, there
was a problem as to where lime was to come from. The chemist, through a process
of calcining of the limestone, made it available to the soil. There are many uses of
lime in its decomposed forms on the farm. Chief among these are its powers to coun-
teract acidity in the soil, its benencial effect upon nitrifying bacteria and the germicidal
properties it possesses. .Lime plays an important part in farm construction work. It
is the basis of an important fungicide spray with which most of us are familiar, that
is, lime-sulfur. Lime-sulfur is a mixture of the persuliides of calcium, made by boil-
ing a solution of calcium hydroxide with sulfur. The extensive use of this spray
in the apple-growing district of this State has raised the standard of quality and has
increased the yield of the fruit tremendously.
Although the part chemistry plays in supplying plants with food for growth and
fruitage is important, it is equally important that chemistry protects vegetative life
from disease and other inconspicuous enemies. Disease and insects annually take a
tremendous toll in plant life. Not that only tree and plant life is involved, but it is
the welfare of the farmer that is in danger when disease or insects menace his crops
or forest. Disease and insects seem to be more prevalent, apparently, in vegetative life
than in animal life. In the present time it is almost impossible to raise a competitive
crop of fruit or trucks without the use of chemical sprays. When protected from
insects and disease, the yields of vegetables, apples, grapes and other fruits are more
than doubled, yet the cost is less than if a larger area were farmed. The placing of
chemicals that will check the ravages of insects and disease at the disposal of the farmer,
fruit grower and forester is one of the greatest services of chemistry to agriculture.
This is especially true in the Southern section of our country, where cotton,
one of the most important cash crops of the South, is raised. The cotton boll weevil
had of late increased its depredations to such a point that cotton growing seemed
doomed to failure. But the ever-helpful chemist brought forth that now-famous insec-
ticide, calcium arsenate, and as a result the weevil is now under control to a great
extent. This means much, not only to our country, but also to the rest of the world,
as cotton is a leading article in international trade and is used in the manufacture of
multitudes of necessities and luxuries.
However, the chemist does not stop when he has fed and safeguarded our plant
life from disease and insects. He turns about and safeguards humans and lower
animals from the same enemies with medicines and tonics derived from plants and
chemicals. The farmer has cause to rejoice because of this protection, for his animals,
whatever they may be, are not blessed with perpetual health. Comparatively little is
known of a certain few diseases, but as a whole, the chemist is well prepared to combat
other diseases common to farm animals. Chemistry plays an important part in the
eradication of insects that infest farm animals. Chickens are often greatly bothered
with various parasites, such as lice and mites. These are killed by applying some suit-
able chemical to the head and under the wings. Further control is secured by thor-
oughly disinfecting the henhouse with kerosene, carbolic acid or a solution of ferrous
sulfate. Solutions of potassium permanganate, or hydrogen peroxide, are used in treat-
ment of diseased poultry. Calcium persulfide, cresol, nicotine compounds or other
similar chemicals are used in dips to rid sheep and cattle of lice and ticks. Small
rodents which play such a large part in the spread of disease are eradicated by resort-
ing to certain chemical poisons, such as strychinine.
Not only is great service rendered the farmer when his stock is protected from
disease, but the chemist has gone further and taught the farmer what feeds are com-
posed of, what effect they have upon the animal, and what a balanced ration is.
Through his efforts, it has been made possible to get a feed to meet any requirement
of farm animals. Rations have been outlined that contain vitamins, lime, phosphates
and other positively necessary ingredients that are needed by growing stock. Chem-
istry has discovered feeding values in so many materials that have hitherto been thrown
away as wastes. For instance, let us consider cotton. When the seed was picked
from the linters it had practically no value. Later the chemist increased the cotton
growers? income by separating the hull from the meats. The hulls are converted chiefly
into feed, fertilizer, cellulose containing fiber, a basis for explosives and numerous
pressed paper products. The meats are a source of crude oil, cake and meal. The
cake and meal are converted into feed, fertilizer, flour and dyes. The crude oil is
refined and used for food purposes Ceither in the oil state or in combination with other
fatsj. Many other by-products are derived from cotton seed. These are used in
the manufacture of tars, soaps, linoleum and oilcloths.
Another instance of the infinite aid rendered by the chemist toward feeding farm
animals is shown by the way he handled the corn crop during recent years. There
is no other grain crop of such economic importance in America as the corn crop. A
large percentage of animal life is supported by corn. Since the chemist looked into
the possibilities of corn he has greatly enhanced the value of the crop. He separated
the grain into hull, body and germ, obtaining bran from the hull, starch from the body
and oil from the germ. The foundation of many other important products are based
upon these materials. The cob of the corn, which is now a waste, will soon be utilized
for something by the chemist.
The peanut is fast becoming a popular crop in diversified farming in the South,
since the chmeist found about one hundred and forty-seven uses for it. Naturally, the
price per bushel has been enormously increased.
,,,,,gr llH9 t - -
Obvoiusly, the chemist played an important part in lowering the cost of feeding
animals, thus enabling the farmer to raise more live stock economically and conse-
quently increase the food supply by utilizing the wastes of many products.
In modern dairying the milk must be tested for butter fat and the cheese for
casein. We should then recognize the value of the chemical sulfuric acid, which plays
an important part in these tests. Knowledge of the exact percent of butter fat given
by the different cows is essential to economical feeding of cows. '
This brings up the part the chemist has learned of the process of digestion and as-
similation of food by the body. The chemist knows that the living body, whether human
or animal, is an infinitely complex chemical laboratory in which endless and extremely
intricate chemical changes are always taking place. The continual oxidation taking
place within the body, the building up of bone and tissue, the digestion and utilization of
food, and indeed practically all the processes going on within the body, are chemical
changes. The chemist realizes that these fundamental chemical and physical changes de-
termine in a most vital way the health of the body, and that when disease is contracted
by the body it is an absolutely certain sign that one or more of the countless minute
reactions are progressing improperly or not at all. This knowledge enabled the chemist
to make accurate statements in regard to what the farmer should feed his animals
to promote health, growth and vigor in the stock. He discovered in what substances
vitamins are in and told the farmer to feed that to his young stock.
Great as is the part of chemistry in the science of agriculture and in the develop-
ment of latent materials into useful products, the relation of chemistry to forestry
is equally important.
It would be well-nigh impossible to enumerate all the articles made of wood. It
suffices to say that we could scarcely live decently without wood. Wood is a very
complex, chemical substance. Paper, 90 per cent of which is made of wood, is prob-
ably the most important and necessary product of wood. fWe are all familiar with
paperg we read from it, write on it, wipe our hands on it, and We pack our food in
paperj. The most common grade of paper is made from wood cut into chips and
cooked with a solution of calcium bisulfate, a chemical prepared by the union of an
excess of sulfurous acidwith calcium hydroxide. This process dissolves out the objec-
tional constitutient of the wood, lignin, leaving pure cellulose, which is the material
used in making paper. Spruce, hemlock, balsam and poplar have hitherto supplied
most of the Wood for paper. Southern yellow pine, which has been thought to be
useless for paper, is now used for rougher wrapping paper.
Turpentine, wood alcohol, charcoal and acetate of lime are products of wood
derived by distillation. All these products are important in the chemical world because
they furnish so much needed material. Turpentine is used in paint-mixing, as medcine
and for other purposes. Wool alcohol also is not to be despised, as it finds many uses
in industrial and chemical activities of the nation. Charcoal also is very important,
being used for insulation, refining sugar and in smelting of ores. One big reason
Why the process of distillation of wood is important is because waste materials, like
slabs, sawdust, crooked trees and stumps, can be utilized.
Before chemistry discovered the value of resin, it was thrown away in the process
of distilling turpentine. Now there are many uses for it. Important by-products
are: linoleum, silk, ink, soap, varnish, celluloid, chloroform and iodoform. Chemistry
continues finding important products in Wastes. At present experiments are being
made in attempting to convert sawdust into a highly volatile alcohol which may be
used instead of gasoline in internal combustion engines. If chemistry succeeds, it may
prove of great value, as there are rumors of the depletion of the oil supply.
One of the greatest problems now facing America is the rapid depletion of forests
and the ultimate extinction of timber, unless steps are immediately taken in the oppo-
site direction. Educated people of today realize the fact that 'at the rate trees are
going today they will be extinct in twenty years. But the ignorant believe that there
is just as much timber now as in the past, consequently their tendency is to be waste-
ful with wood. There are several ways in which the requirements for wood can be
met. Through reforestation, supply more wood, use the present supply more effec-
tively and use where. possible some substitute of wood. Chemistry is striving in the
fight to help win against deforestation. Great assistance was rendered by chemistry
in using the present supply more effectively. Chemicals protect lumber from its worst
enemies, decay-producing organisms. Paints, oils and creosote are extensively used.
In such wastes as rags, unused cotton linters, other similar things, are used in the
manufacture of paper. Iron and cement are good substitutes of lumber.
So in hundreds of ways we see where chemistry is a fundamental factor in modern
scientific agriculture and forestry. As agriculture has been in the past the basis of
safety of the nation, so it shall be in the future. The ever-increasing population and
the decreasing farm lands and forests are a problem of modern education, commerce
and finance. However, with the aid of chemistry, the solution is evident.

The Ziaenrirn Qinuntp :Fair
HE HENRICO COUNTY FAIR, Henrico's greatest event,
was held at Varina Agricultural High School on October
2nd and 3rd.
.In no previous years has such a large quantity of high
quality products been exhibited. The farm crop department
was crowded to capacity with corn, potatoes, leguminous
hays and all other farm products. The live stock and poultry show was
bigger and better than ever beforeg the large and varied exhibits in the
ladies and school departments proved that the importance of the home and
education is being fully realized by the citizens of Henrico County. The
spectators and judges unanimously declared that this was the best fair
ever held in the county.
I Many people came out to congratulate the blue ribbon winners and to
enjoy the fellowship of all those who were interested in the development
of Henrico resources.
Additional entertainment was furnished by a merry-go-round and a
show. During the evening there was a real treat for those present-the
Varina Band furnished music and a wonderful display of Hreworks was
The County Fair is doing a great work in the development of a higher
quality of farm products and livestock. lt should grow and become bigger
and better each year if every one interested in Henrico's development Will
For information see the Business Nlanager, C. C. Abernathy, or talk
with any progressive farmer.
The next fair will be held September 10th-llth, 1925.
