STUDENT GCVERNMENT Student government in Vinson High School is the name given to three institutions that have control ot all the activities ot the school. These institutions have the power to make rules and regulations in all matters of student activity not strictly academic, subject, of course, to the final authority of the school administration. Student government was organized in Vinson High School in i936 by lvl. O. Brumfield. lt consists of the Student Council, the Student Court, and the Social Activities Committee. The Student Council is the legislative department ot the Government. Each grade of the school has two representatives who make the laws ap- plying to the whole student body. A president is elected from either the junior or the Senior Class of the year. l-le or she appoints a vice-president, secretary, treasurer, chaplain, sergeant-at-arms, and corresponding secre- tary. Page 16 STUDENT CCUNCIL The Student Council has the power to pass general regulations: to raise money and to expend that money, to fill vacancies in the offices of class presidents. On the whole, it has a broad grant of power to engage in practically any activity not specifically forbidden to it by the school ad- ministration or by the Constitution of the Student Body. The Student Court is the judicial department of the Government. This Court is made up of two faculty members, the principal, and two students appointed by the Student Council. It tries cases and renders decisions concerning all matters brought before it. A department that has the veto power as to whether a certain activity can be given is the Social Activities Committee. This committee is made up of two students and one faculty member, appointed by the Student Council. This committee must give approval to any dance, party, or other school social function before that function can take place. Student government has achieved a rapidly increasing success. lt has obtained a place in the school as an honorable institution. lt is en- gaged in a wider field of activities than formerly and all signs indicate that its scope will widen as more years come and go. Each year the Student Council has many activities. This year we have tried to make an outstanding one in the history of our school. "Sadie Hawkins' Day" was held on November 7, l94l, with a dance that night. On October 28, l94l, we sponsored a Hallowe'en Party-in the school gymnasium. Awards are given for the Council members for their services each year. For the two year members a suitable award is given. For the one year members a standard pin of the Student Council is awarded. The Student Council wishes to take this opportunity of expressing their sincere thanks to the student body and the faculty and the principal for their splendid co-operation and help in making this a bigger and better school year. The Student Council, at this time, wishes to thank lennie Crank, the President for 1941-i942 for her leadership and guidance during this school year. BONNIE ELLEN HENSLEY, Treasurer Student Council.

They run the local hotel, Several days before Christmas, the Westbound bus is stalled in a snowdrift at the edge of town, so into the hotel come all the passengers. Among them is a breezy ex-sailor, james Kearney. He has been "every- where," but has never taken any girl seriously until he meets Libby. His feelings in the matter are returned, but a local swain, Harvey Keyser, feels that he holds prior claim upon Libby's affections, having helped financially her father. Some of the more amusing characters are two college girls. Trixie Angel, who has a pet dog, jesse Weatherby, who hopes to become Mrs. Silas Stonebraker, Mrs. Humphrey Mearson and her romantic daugh- ter, who is quite enamored of jim, causing Libby some anxious moments.

TRI-HI-Y The Tri-Hi-Y Club of Vinson l-ligh School was organized by its pres- ident in the year of l94O. Since that time it has been very important in school activities. This year its president is Peggy Waugh, the vice-president is Edna Roxie johnston, the secretary is Ruth Brammell, and the treasurer is Betty Lo Nease, and the corresponding secretary is Anna Lee C-reene. The club has two meetings a month. One at home which is consid- ered as a social and one at school which is strictly a business meeting. There is also some sort of social activity each month. There are thirty active members in the club, and it is sponsored by Mrs. Crete Ward. The Tri-l-li-Y Club has taken active part in knitting for the Red Cross. Several of the girls knitted sweaters. The social for October was a covered dish luncheon held at the home of Lora Dell Forman. A theater party was attended Thanksgiving as the social for the month of November. Mrs. Ward entertained the members of the club at a Christmas party in December. Mrs. Roland Patrick in- vited the club to have a covered dish luncheon at her home for the social event of january. In February the Tri-Hi-Y Club and the Hi-Y Club had a sweetheart ball. At the first of the school year the Tri-Hi-Y and the Hi-Y Club had a joint induction of the two similar clubs at Mason City, West Virginia. They chartered a bus to attend. There were forty members of both clubs who vvent. HI - Y CLUB Mr. B. D. McQuinn is the sponsor of the Hi-Y. The Club consists of 20 members for the first semester of l94l -l942. The President is Frederick Bowe. The vice-President is lack Wheeler, the secretary is Eugene Smith, and the treasurer is Frederick Wilkerson. The club is composed of three committees - the Devotional, the Program, and the Project. The chairmen of the committees are: Devotion, lack Wheeler, Program, Frederick Wilkerson, Proiect, Charles Eskew. The club has an executive committee made up of the officers who have to consider and pass excuses for absences from meetings and who plan the general procedure of the club. The club has organized three basketball teams for recreation. In November the club was invited to Mason City, West Virginia, to conduct an induction of members into the Mason High School Hi-Y. Late in November the club had a spaghetti dinner at the home of Clifford Ply- male, a member. On the sixteenth of December a banquet was given at the home of Mr. McQuinn, the sponsor. The club also attended a dinner given at the Y. M. C. A. and a dance given there later on. The Vinson Hi-Y is progressing and expanding rapidly and will do bigger and better things in the future for the school and community. We hope to increase our membership to 30 for the second semester. 11 Page 23 Page 24 jUNIOR - SENIOR PROM 1941 Thursday, May 29, l94l, in the ballroom of the Hotel Governor Cabell members of the junior Class were hosts to members of the Senior Class at a banquet and prom. The banquet which began at 7 o'clock was enjoyed by everyone. A delicious course, which consisted of fried chicken, dutchess potatoes, green beans, fruit cocktail, salad, and strawberry sundae, was served. At the speaker's table were seated the guests of honor, Miss Ruth Staley, assistant superintendent of schools in Wayne County, Mr. and Mrs. Fletcher Lloyd, member of the board of education, Mr, j. H, Bowling, our principal, Mr. M. O. Brumfield, the Senior sponsor, Mrs. Beth Nichols, the junior sponsor, Nancy Winchester, president of the Senior class, Elizabeth Kauffman, pres- ident of the junior class, Fred Bowe, vice-president of the junior class. After the dinner course was finished a few words were spoken by each of these. The prom, which was a semi-formal dance was one of the many given in the city during the closing weeks of school to celebrate the adjournment of the school year. lt was a warm evening, so the girls wore their summer formals, and the boys wore sport coats, slacks, and campus suits. Fred Becker and his orchestra played many a lively tune and jitterbugs took the floor. As a highlight of the evening Miss june Morehead, a member of our school, entertained us with a few songs and dance numbers, The conduct was very polite and couples exchanged partners by programs which were made in advance. Mr. Bill Estler and his photographer, Mr. W. T. Chambers, took several pictures of this big event for the l-lerald-Advertiser. More than one hundred young people were present and paid proper respect to the chaperones who were faculty members and their wives or husbands. At l a. m. the orchestra played its goodnight tune and the happy, flushed couples streaked for all night cafes to down hamburgers, coffee, and milk. This junior-Senior Prom was enjoyed by everyone and marked the climax of the many pleasant social events of the high school year.

The Vinson Band in Orange and Black is at it again with their band instruments. New members have been added and several old ones have graduated. Those who are graduating this year have already received their letters so that they could wear them all the school year. The Band Booster's Club has been working tor several years now to keep the band in the top ranks with other leading bands as tar as instru- ments and uniforms go. Many new instruments have been added since they have been organized. The Band attended football games this year both at home and away. They really had a good showing with four majorettes, a mascot, and we are really proud of them. The time when the band shines is always at the annual Band Festival held every year in Huntington. This year our band won approval again.

The staff of this paper is chosen by the student council composed of students, and with faculty advisor, Mr. M. O. Brumfield, head of the De- partment of Commerce, acting as a mentor in difficult situations, complete- ly operating under the hands of students. This year, Helene Wickline is the editor of the Vinsonian, She is ably assisted by Betty Midkiff, Peggy Waugh, lennie Crank, Bonnie Hensley, and Anna Lee Greene. The Vinsonian Staff wishes to take this opportunity to thank the stu- dents for their patronage. THE VINSONIAN GOES TO PRESS Page 29 THE WEST HUNTINGTONIAN ln the production of the i942 WEST HUNTINCTONIAN, as is the case of any business, the will to succeed is of a prime importance. This spirit has been the guiding hand of the Seniors that have put in countless hours in producing this book. They did not stop when they were dis- couraged, but worked on with the blind hope that they would succeed. The Student Body has co-operated with us more this year than eve before in the history of the school. By using an installment plan, a hun- dred students were able to buy this book. Enough sales have been mad to insure publication, and the i942 WEST HUNTINCTONIAN comes to ' hes you with our best was . THE ANNUAL STAFF OF 1942.

They worked hard and had the respect ot every team that they played. Larger crowds were attending the games this year which is a scale to go by in the strength of the team. Herbert Stephens was the star of many games. jimmie Patterson, Norris Lewis, Everett Fannin, Charles Eskew, Irvin LeMaster, Eugene Sal- yers, Dick Midler, Bobby Waugh, and jimmy Lilly make up the squad. Everyone says this is the best team at Vinson for many years. 633 Modern design in football and basketball has developed these games tar beyond the ability ot teams a decade ago. More knowledge ot the game is necessary by the coach, the player, and the spectator. Drastic rule changes each year demand study, practice. performance, and extensive training. Training is so necessary that the athlete himself realizes his part in the training schedule. The slogan YOU MUST TRAIN TO WIN, has put our nation beyond all others in phy- sical fitness. lnductees and volunteers in Uncle Sam's vast war time Army and Navy are ready to go, because THEY HAVE BEEN READY TO GO. The Vinson "Tigers" ot the season, athletes who repre- sented the teams ot l94l, 1942, have shown a spirit to win by training to win, which is the spirit ot the day, HOMER MCCOY, Coach.

They won four games, tied one game, and lost four games. There was only a small squad of boys which was more reduced when two key boys became injured and could not play the remainder of the season, Members of the team were: Richard Midler - RE Eugene Salyers LE jack Webster RT Everett Fannin Covey Smith - RC Charles White Charles LeMaster LC Charles Eskew Vernord Lemons LT lrvin LeMaster Pontie Black - - LC Ivan Pemberton Buddy Isabell - - RT Fred Bowe - - FB Boyd jackson - - Center The victories of the Vinson "Tigers" included Man, Chesapeake, Fort C-ay, and lronton St. joseph. The tie was with Russell, Kentucky, At Duvall there was a 6-7 loss. We also lost to Portsmouth Central. The best game of the season was at Ceredo-Kenova. We lost that game 20-13. Ceredo-Kenova had a very good season of football or we would have beaten them. lack Webster and Charles Eskew were injured in that game so that they could not participate further in football. Vinson looks forward to a very successful season next year. We are only losing three boys due to graduation. The football team was well trained and performed better than any at Vinson High School for some time.

First, to our Principal, we leave our best wishes for a long and happy life, and may he find many more pleasant hours among the students of Vinson High School. To our Faculty we leave our love and gratitude for all the fine things they have done for us, and for their untiring effort in teaching us the knowledge that we have so graciously received.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY l942 Dear Classmates: As I sit here before the fire day-dreaming, my mind wanders back over my school days. Come with me down the lane of memory to a warm September morning in the year of l93O. On this memorial morning four frightened little girls in gingham quietly slipped into seats in Miss lennie Crum's room. They were Lucille Peters, Mary Alice Staley, lean jackson, and june Hopson. These and five others, who were double-promoted into our class, were the only ones who com- pleted their high school work at Dear Ole' Vinson. Our first five years were uneventful. Then came a great change to our little group. Nellie Black, loyce Chapman, Peggy Waugh, lennie Crank, and Charles LeMaster entered Vinson from other schools. Betty Huff, Betty Lou Raymond, Catherine Frazier, Betty Midkiff, and Helen Wickline were double-promoted into our class. Also at this time, due to a change in mid-semester promotions, Maxine Malcolm, Frances Young, Lydia Mosby, Elma Perdue, and Richard Miller joined the "gang" We continued on our merry way through the sixth, seventh and eighth grades, We passed from a world of safety and security into a land of wonders-HIGH SCHOOL. On this glad day we find added to our gang Anna Lee C-reene, Edna johnston, Mary Frances Waugh, Elizabeth Watts, Elsie Mae Taylor, Maudie Coates, Bonnie Ellen Hensley, Eileen Conley, Emogene Tomblin, julia Thompson, junior Bowles, Willard Coates, and Fred Bowe. Our sponsors were Mrs. Ward and Mr. Tabor. By the beginning of the tenth grade we were well on our way to glorious high school careers. We had for our sponsors Mr. Tabor and Mr. Shirley. Page 45 Pano 46 SENIGR CLASS HISTORY Then came our junior year, opening a land of opportunity to a group of starry-eyed students. This year Elizabeth Kauffman entered Vinson and became our class president. We gave our class play, "Pigtails". Mrs. Pifer and Mrs. Nichols, our class sponsors, directed it. Remember? On Febru- ary 22 we gave a dance at St. Cloud's Common which was one of the most colorful events of the year. Our next big occasion was the junior-Senior Prom which was held at the Hotel Governor Cabell. Pictures of this event were featured on the front page of the society section of the l-lerald-Ad- vertiser on the following Sunday morning. This, indeed, was a night that will not be soon forgotten. We entered our Senior year with the hope that we would be the most outstanding group ever to be graduated from Vinson. Esta Smith joined us at this time. Mr. Shirley and Mr. Brumfield, our sponsors, have devoted both time and talent to help us reach our goal. Most of us received our class rings for Christmas which bore our class motto-Respice Finem, which means "Onward to the Coal." On April ll our Senior play was given. lt was "Seeing Double" and was a great success. Chosen as Valedictorian and Salutatorian from our Senior class of i942 were june Hopson as Valedictorian and Charlene Frazier as Salutatorian. May lO to May i5 was Senior's week. Baccalaureate was on Sunday, lvlay IO. Commencement exercises were on May l2 and 38 students re- ceived their diplomas. And so, dear classmates, as we approach the end of our Senior year, let us keep in mind that the past i2 years have only been the foundation on which we build a house-our lives. Let us always remember our motto, "Onward to the Coal"- be it great or small. IUNE HOPSON.
