The good craft, ’ 26 , had, as crew, about seventy boys and girls, unused to the tossing and tumbling of such a vast sea; their journeyings had been on comparatively smooth waters heretofore. The vessel was equipped by a large number of capitalists who waited and watched anxiously for news of its voyages. The ship has as its captain, Stanley Rutherford, and the vessel was piloted by Fain, Hutton and Moore. The voyage, for the first few weeks, was very rough and slow; the duties and positions of the crew had to be assigned. The sailing after that was fairly safe until January; as a consequence of the stormy waters encountered at that time some of the crew fell from the top masts to the decks and some, alas!, were buried in the surging waves. In the happy month of June, the boat sailed into harbor with the minds of its sailors enriched and strengthened by their months of experience. The crew was now more sure of itself and had more faith in its ability — it had sailed through unknown seas and perilous storms, and it still survived with almost all of its original crew. Again, in September, the craft set sail, this time with Captain Paul Davis in command and Tanner, Hillman and Mort as pilots. The owners, encouraged by their former success, remained true to their investments and staunchly supported a second and third voyage. While a few of the crew found them- selves unable to withstand the rigors of the seas, and refused to reship, sailors from distant lands joined to take their places. After the third year of its travels in search for rich and important gains, the vessel returned to port for repairs and readjustments. Before sailing again on the fourth and last of its voyages, Captain Roy Bowers surrendered his position to Troy Chandler, and Hanson and Aaron succeeded Smith and King as pilots of the goodly vessel. The ship went far away through new waters, into strange and distant lands. In these foreign countries, the members of the crew gathered much material which was to be of untold value to them in their future. In June of their fourth year, the crew came into their final haven of graduation with their hopes and aims fully realized. They were filled with a great happiness and they parted from each other with many good wishes and cheery farewells. — Jane Smith. 41 1925 The Virginian 1926 Prophecy Extract from the Bristol Herald-Courier , 3000 A. D.: A translation of the mysterious manuscript found in the Sahara Desert has at last been published. This valuable translation is given to the world by the great translator of dead languages, Bailey Mumpower. On this summer day of 1940 we found ourselves lost in the vast, open ex- panse of the Sahara Desert. Our car, which up to this time had caused no trouble, developed a serious case of overheating, but after getting in touch with its inventor, Charles Pratt, who had become famous by the invention of an auto-plane (a combination of the automobile and aeroplane), we were able to overcome the difficulty in a short time. I may mention here that I was greatly aided in reaching Mars by radio by Albert Goodpasture, who had attained great heights in the radio world. After we had made the necessary repairs, we noticed an oasis a short distance beyond. Upon investigation we found it was occupied by a hermit, who proved to be none other than Robert Davis, who to escape the wickedness of the world, had sought refuge in the great Sahara. He informed us that he knew we were coming. Upon our expression of surprise he clapped his hands and a handsome slave appeared, bearing on a purple cushion, a large crystal. However, the supposed slave was not a slave but Edward Glover, our Poster Ace of ’26. “This ball,” said Robert, “keeps me in touch with my classmates of ’26; look and you shall see.” As we gazed into the crystal a birds-eye view of Bristol appeared to us. It was not Bristol of ’26, but a greatly improved Bristol with wide streets, beautiful avenues, and great manufacturing establishments. Due to the tireless efforts of Roy Bowers and Herman Baker, our Virginia representatives in Con- gress, Bristol was a revelation to its 1926 inhabitants. Water was now being supplied to Bristol by the much discussed Holston dam and aqueduct project. This view vanished and the globe revealed to us a series of buildings. The first, an opera house designed by James Miles, a now famous architect and owned by James Horton, a capitalist. The crystal took us into the interior of the building to view the performance of the evening. We saw in one of the luxurious boxes several well-known, society matrons, whom we recognized as our former classmates, Lucile Fugate, who believed in the old rhyme, “Changing the state and not the name Hands out happiness just the same.” Ruth Mclver, whose handsome face still justifies our judgment in voting her the prettiest girl in Virginia High and Jane Smith who has added not a ray of color to her name, but “White” she will ever remain. Anna Belle Snead, as pianist and Henry Lockett, our tip-top banjo player, were important parts of a fifty-piece orchestra, that was discoursing (?) wonder- 42 1925 The Virginian 1926 ful music. Another feature of much enjoyment was the vocal music rendered by Rachel McCrary, a famous opera singer. At the rise of the curtain we were delighted to see a picture which featured a handsome hero, Harvey Hepworth, playing opposite Alys Lavinder, successor to Gloria Swanson. This was followed by another picture in which Herman Hines and Bernice Miller presented a rip-roaring comedy. In the Pathe News Edna Dungan and Silas Long were pictured as world- famous athletes. Another glance into the crystal revealed to us a row of beautiful homes on Lee Heights, which Robert told us, belonged to prominent Bristolians, among whom were Elva Latture, Louise Whitten, Tootsie Dungan and Eunice Hassel- vander. On the Lee Highway between Bluefield and Roanoke, we saw the elegant home of Phyllis Kennedy. We found the abode of Laura Lavinder to be a handsome one in the City of Wytheville. Upon further inquiry we were given the following information: Sue Ella Dix was dean of the Business College in Roanoke; Glenna Simcox was teacher in the same school. Annie Lewis was reaping the benefit of her work in the Home Economic Department in her own home, with Nellie Bridgeman as a near-by neighbor. Ethel Steppe has become dean of the Columbia University. Leona Pettyjohn and Eula Musick have charge of an orphan’s home. Mary Elizabeth Barker has become the president of a bank in Knoxville, while Mary Scyphers is assistant cashier of the same bank. We learned that Bradford Allin, “Bennie” Booher, Paul Long and Elmer Burchfield (whom we remem- bered as our best football players of ’26) had become members of Red Grange’s team. The twice-married Harry Wolfe was living the life of a lucky divorcee. Louise Wolfe was helping a brilliant lawyer to buy ham and eggs. Oliver Buchanan, as skilled civil engineer was killing snakes in South America; Troy Chandler, a second Daniel Webster, was speaker of the House. Edith Sharrett and Mamie Vermillion were conducting a mission school for mountaineers. Earnest Simcox, James Hess and Bascom Scyphers were taking life easy on a large ranch out West. Garland Dunn had become a successful reporter for the Wallace Times, of which Lawrence Hill was Editor-in-Chief. The crystal told us that Franklin Groseclose was still interested in Virginia High and “she who lives in the house across the street.” Garland Cunningham, William Dunn, Douglas Barnes and Ralph Calhoun were millionaire oil well owners. Mildred Young, a great chemist, is located in Kalamazoo. Hattie Ayles, the town doctor, is ably assisted by Bernice Pitts, a famous trained nurse. Ruth Hensley, Ethel Worley and Ruth Smith have become valuable school teachers. We were greatly disappointed that we could not see Virginia White’s home, because the crystal showed views on only one continent. The crystal showed next a gorgeous Art Studio which we learned belonged to Marion Sheen, whose pictures have been accepted by the French Academy As the crystal became dark, we departed amazed and delighted to have heard of our old classmates here so many miles away from civilization. Lucille Carmack The Virginian 1925 A Fond Farewell i. We’ve come together for a last goodbye, Our work has ended here. And we’re each wondering what the future holds And just where we’ll be next year — As we each settle down to the cares of life And leave Alma Mater so dear, And oft we’ll sigh, for the days gone by And the joys of our school days here. II. We’re here tonight to bid farewell To the school we hold so dear, ’Tis sad for us; so soon we’ve come To the end of our Senior year. May the friends we’ve made be tried and true And prove the strongest tie. If our hopes come true, we’ll live with you In our dreams, O Virginia High. Chorus: The time has come to say goodbye, To our high school days so dear, We’ll ne’er forget the times we’ve had Nor memories ever near. As we live our life with its sorrow and strife, And the days pass by into years, We’ll ever be true to you, dear school, And cherish our high school days. 1926 1925 The Virginian 19 26 Senior Class Poem The spring always brings happy times With growing flowers and trees. The sun is bright, the leaves are green, Joy comes on every breeze. We look around us glad to see New beauties every day. All life is gay, all life is bright With sunshine, love and play. But this springtime there comes a cloud That shades the bright blue sky. We feel the joys slip from our lives As days go passing by. The hours that still are left to us Bring sighs and many a tear. Our minds are filled with thoughts of grief, For ’tis our Senior year. While sadness flickers o’er our days, There comes a ray of light, That takes away the fear we feel And leaves a thought so bright. We know that years can not take ’way The ideals true and sound Which we in Old Virginia High Have ever, ever found. Good-bye, our school, we leave thee now, We’ll keep our memories dear; Tho’ fate may draw us far away Our thoughts will e’er be near. Phyllis Kennedy 19 25 The Virginian 1926 Class Will We, the Seniors of Bristol, Virginia, High School, in the year of our Lord, 1926, being of sound mind and good looks, do hereby make and publish the following to be our last Will and Testament: First: To our Faculty, long may they live, even as long as the lessons they give. Second: To the Junior Class we leave all the second-hand chewing gum, discarded lip stick, broken desks and left-over rouge, to be used by them at the first banquet in the “Gym.” Third: We hereby make the following personal bequests with the hope that they be accepted in as loving a spirit as they are given: To Miss Hanson we leave “Brad” Allin’s shoes. “Ber” Miller, Edna and “Toots” Dungan leave their lip stick to Mary Moorman, Patty Godsey, and Virginia Litton, hoping that it will improve their appearance. Herman Baker leaves his ability to argue to Randolph Roberts. Silas Long and Roy Bowers leave their “shieky” ways to Jim Horton and “Poly” Kauffman. “Peewee” leaves his position at center on the football team to Jimmy Holmes. Troy Chandler leaves the “soup strainer” of Mr. Loomis to a Junior to be used in the auditorium only. Henry Lockett, Harvey Hepworth and Harry Wolfe leave the latter’s Ford to Robert Preston, David Cash and Paul Hoover for travel on the Big Creek Pike. Louise Whitten leaves her hairpins to Helen Burchfield. Laura Lavinder leaves her flapperish ways to Margaret Myers. Ralph Calhoun and Hattie Ayles leave their excuses they made up for tardies to be used by Jack Fuller and Newton Bush. Annie Belle Snead leaves what’s left of the piano to Bonnie Maiden. We hereby appoint Mr. Fred Reuning as Executor to carry out this will to the fullest extent, hoping that he will spare neither time nor money in so doing. We, the undersigned, do respectfully submit this, our last Will and Testa- ment. Witnessed by: Troy Chandler, President Senior Class. Miss Jennie Buford Hanson, Senior Sponsor.

We make the Seniors open their eyes And look at us with much surprise. They look at us as if to say, “I wonder how you got that way,” And we just look back and smile As if to say, “Oh, run awhile.” Oh! I’ll admit we sometimes bother, Even our dear mother and father, But nevertheless, you have confessed, As Juniors we are the very best. So hail to the Juniors, one and all!

This activity, directed by Miss Kate Wheeler and participated in by the teachers and pupils of all the schools, proved to be a decided success. There was an extraordinary exhibition of work from numerous and sundry departments. Prizes donated by the Parent-Teacher Associations and the merchants of the town, were awarded to the best exhibitions of the following: Vegetables, flowers, canned fruit, candy, fruit, bread from the Home Economics Class, aprons, lingerie and dresses from the Sewing Class, drawings and pieces of furniture from the Manual Training Department, and handwork made by children of the primary grades. The display, so artistically arranged, was heartily commended by the hundreds of visitors who attended the fair. Hallowe’en Party This day of spooks and witches was observed with proper rites and cere- monies when the Senior Class gave a party at the High School building. The gymnasium was appropriately decorated with corn stalks, pumpkins, witches, and streamers of orange and black. In each corner was a booth, arranged by a Senior, offering various attractions to those attending. At one booth ice cream was sold while at another a glorious and thrilling future was disclosed by Mrs. Bennett, the expert fortune-teller. The side shows which offered much amusement were the Fishing Pond, the Chamber of Horrors, the Kissing Booth, and the Beauty Parlor. The prizes for the best costumes in promenade were won by Edna Dungan as Red Riding Hood and Bascom Scyphers as a Country Jay. 74 1925 The Virginian 1926 Charles Harkrader J. D.

Each member of the team was asked to invite a young lady. The faculty and their better halves, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Reuning, and Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Gilmer were also present. The lunch room of the school was beautifully decorated in orange and black for the occasion. Orange and black candles in crystal candle sticks were placed at intervals on the tables which were arranged to form a V. On a small table in the center of the room four cups, won by the school, were con- nected by cords of silver to a large silver basket-ball on a pedestal in the middle. The place cards were attractive and the favors were of various kinds and caused amusement during the evening. A delicious menu was served in three c ourses between which several toasts were given. Toasts and responses were exceedingly clever and appro- priate songs were sung. Music was furnished throughout the evening by Anna Belle Snead at the piano, accompanied by Floyd and Randolph Roberts on the banjo and violin. TOAST TO TEAM Miss Burrow Our full back bows to the cheering crowd, And our halves and our quarter, too. And the praise ascends to our plucky ends Who fought for me and you. We’d watch the game and we’d all exclaim, “Juse see that fellow run!” And we’d shout and roar when the struggle was o’er. That the game was only won By the half-back’s pluck in that splendid buck That carried him over the goal, But did we see fit to think a bit Of the man who made the hole? So take your cup and fill it up And drink to them so sturdy and fine, A toast to our glorious, plunging backs And our men who held the line! 78 1925 The Virginian 19 26 Officers Rachel McCrary Alice Lavinder Louise Wolfe Laura Lavinder Lucile Fugate President Vice-Presiden t Treasurer Corresponding Secretary Recording Secretary Who ’s- Who Anna Belle Snead Ruth McIver Louise Wolfe Rachel McCrary Phyllis Kennedy Alys Lavinder Laura Lavinder Marion Sheen Lucile Fugate. 1 Prettiest .. j Cutest Most Popular Biggest Flirt Best Dancer Most Attractive Most Talented Sweetest 1925 1926 The Virginian “ Monogram Club” OFFICERS Paul Davis President Gene McIver Vice-President Silas Long Secretary and Treasurer Stanley Rutherford Paul Davis Elmer Burchfield Howard Sublett Silas Long Eugene McEver Jim Crockett MEMBERS Howard Miller Garland Creger Bradford Allin Earl Creger Paul Long Harry Wolfe Oliver Buchanan Beattie Feathers Edward Glover Benny Booher Billie Dickey Ralph Calhoun Herman Baker 80 1925 The Virginian 1926 Junior-Senior Banquet The Annual Junior-Senior Banquet, given to the Senior Class by the Juniors, took place in the gymnasium of Virginia High School on Saturday evening, May the first. The Junior Class, assisted by the Parent-Teacher Association, had as its guests on this occasion the following: The Senior Class, Mr. and Mrs. Bowers, Mrs. Parrish, Mr. and Mrs. Gilmer, Miss Aaron, Miss Hanson, Mr. and Mrs. King, Miss Smith and Miss Hillman. The gymnasium was very artistically decorated with streamers of purple and gold, the colors of the Senior Class. The same color scheme was carried out in the table decorations. Potted plants and tall vases of iris further enhanced the beauty of the room. A hidden orchestra furnished music through- out the evening. The color scheme of the Juniors was carried out in the menu: Grape fruit, entwined with smilax, chicken, dressing, gravy, pickles, cranberry jelly, celery, peas in potato nests, buttered rolls, ice tea, fruit salad, wafers, brick cream and cake. The president of the Junior Class, Miss Virginia Litton, presided and acted as toast-mistress. Between the courses of the banquet the following toasts and songs were rendered: Helen Burchfield Mary Moorman Harriet Harkrader Junior Class Troy Chandler Randolph Roberts To Our School Old Virginia High Solo To the Seniors Song to Sen iors Response To The Mothers of Virginia High Junior and Senior Class Songs “Good Night Ladies” 81 Mm II 1925 The Virginian 1926 Junior-Hi- Y-Club The most recent club in our school is the Junior Hi-Y, organized by Mr. F.

A. at the High School building, on Friday evening, March 5, was one of the most enjoyable occasions of the season. The hall in the basement was lined with gayly decorated booths offering candy, ice cream, pies, cakes, pop and other tempting wares for sale. A delightful program consisting of a minstrel show, play, songs, dances and recitations, was presented in chapel. The Fashion Show displaying all the latest styles was a marked success. Another entertaining feature of the evening was the basket-ball game between the men and the women of the faculty. After an amusing and thrilling contest which excited the interest of all, the ladies were declared victors. 1925 The Virginian 19 26 Commencement 1926 May 22 — Recital — Piano and Expression Class.

The play was presented in three acts. The first, a scene in chapel proved to us the unusual ability of our musical director and the marked thoughtfulness of our principal, in providing chewing gum for everyone. The second act presented a vivid description of each teacher’s classes; while the third gave us an inside view of a faculty meeting. The burlesque proved a delightful and amusing entertainment.

The success of all the teams representing the school has been, during the year ’25-’26, one of the greatest in the school’s history. Both boys’ and girls’ teams have been of Championship Calibre. Again Virginia High was fortunate enough to secure the services of Mr. Fred Reuning as coach of the boys’ team and Physical Director. Miss Hillman, the girls’ basket-ball coach turned out an excellent team this season. The faculty, students and patrons appreciate fully the work of both coaches, and the success of the teams under their instruction. 1925 The Virginian 1926 Herman Hines Bernice Miller Zippitty, zippitty, zi We’re from Va.

Baker REVIEW OF THE SEASON The football season of 1925 at Virginia High was one of the most successful in the annals of the school, one of which we may be justly proud and one which was duly appreciated by the student body as was shown by the splendid backing given to the team by them. Out of nine games only two were lost, and both of them to teams of unusual merit. The first to defeat us was the V. P. I. Freshmen. Their best man, and they had some good ones, was an old Virginia High man, so that defeat was not so hard to bear, as it might have been otherwise. Our second defeat came when we met Kingsport and were defeated to the tune of 20 to 0. This was a little harder to bear because the teams, aside from being old rivals, were more evenly matched; they just out fought us. The sting of these two reverses was partly taken away when we journeyed to Erwin and snatched a victory from them out of the face of certain defeat. That game was one of the best examples of the fighting spirit which has characterized Virginia High teams. Then, to help wipe out the sting of defeat, we romped on our ancient rival, Tennessee High, with the gratifying score of 34 to 0. So, in spite of those two reverses, the season was one on which we may look back with pride as one of Virginia High’s most successful seasons. 1 itfc ' j Jfl ! 1925 The Virginian 1926 Boys’ Basket-Ball Team 1925 The Virginian 1926 Boys’ Basket-Ball The past season was quite a success, for out of 12 games only 4 were lost. Three of which were won by teams out of our class, the alumni, V. P. I. Fresh- men and Staunton Military Academy at the W. L. Tournament. Only one high school game was lost and this to Kingsport; we retaliated by playing them a game which ended in a tie and which was forfeited to us on their refusal to play it off. Later we beat Johnson City who had defeated Kingsport on their own floor. THE TEAM P. Davis, Capt., Forward H. Sublett, Forward B. Allin, Center E. McEver, Guard E. Glover, Guard S.

This aroused a great deal of interest, especially the game between the Seniors and Sophomores. Because of a dis- puted score it was necessary to play a second game to decide which team was entitled to play the Juniors. In the finals on Thursday, March 18, the Juniors won the undisputed class championship and Mrs. Parrish presented the team a silver loving cup.

H. S., it’s dear old V. H. S., It’s old Virginia High we cheer. So now’s the time boys, to make a big noise. No matter what the people say, There’s naught to fear, the gang’s all here, So here’s to old Virginia High. We ’re gonna’ win this game anyhow or die. We’re gonna’ win this game anyhow or die, Virginia’s team is out today To win this game and walk away, We’re gonna’ win this game anyhow or die. When old Va. falls in line allright, We’re gonna’ win that game again or fight. For when we yell, we yell, we yell for all. For upon the field the foe will fall, lose every ball, But staunch and true to our dear school. And it will surely bring us victory, too, For on this day we’re gonna’ say — gonna’ say, Rah-rah-rah. Oh hail, Virginia, hail, Oh hail, Virginia, hail, Our school’s the best of all the rest, Our praises never fail. Oh hail, Virginia, hail. Oh hail, Virginia, hail, Our school’s the best of all the rest, Our praises never fail, O V-i-r-g-i-n-i-a , Boom, Our dear old High School, we sing to you, Pride of old Va., we love you, yes we do — dear High School, Long may we cherish thee, love and adore, Sing praise and honor, forever more. Va. High, you know we love you, And we long for you to win, Va. High, we are rooting for you, And now we will begin To say hoorah for old Va. Who is always at our call, Bring back to us the grandest victory Of the husky old football. If you think you’re goin’ out to win this game, O, Tenn., change your mind. If you think Va. cannot play, Surprise you’re ’bout to find. For our old school’s an all-right place, And losing to us is no disgrace, So — if you think you’re goin’ out to win this game, O, Tenn., change your mind. 104 1925 The Virginian 1926 Jokes Miss Hillman (in book store) — “I want a Spanish book for my class.” Clerk — ‘‘Here is a good one for $1.00.” Miss Hillman — “Oh, they are above that, they had a $1.25 book last year. ” “Rippy” Owen — “Si says that Your brother is an undertaker. You told me he was a doctor.” “Tige” Harris — “N o, no, I just said he followed the medical profession.” Mr. King (at lunch counter) — “The study of the occult sciences interests me very much. I love to explore the dark depths of mystery, to fathom the unfathomable — . ” Miss Hunt — “May I help you to some hash, Professor?” Mrs. Parrish — “Can you give me a good description of a high school boy, Charles Pratt for example?” Douglas Brewer (pause) —“He is about six feet tall and a foot and a half broad and about four units short. ” The following is the story of Adam and Eve as told in the Bible Class by Leona Pettyjohn: “One day Adam, with his hoe, was returning from his potato patch to his humble abode. Young Cain was running ahead throwing rocks, and when they came to a beautiful garden, said, “Oh! father, look. I wish we could live in that beautiful garden.” “We did,” replied his father, “until your mother ate us out of house and home.” Miss Hillman (Physical Ed.) — “Right about face!” Bernice Miller — “Thank goodness, I’m right about something.” Two B. V. H. S. boys had run away from home. 1st Boy -“Here’s a telegram from your papa.” 2nd Boy — “What does it say?” 1st Boy -“All is forgiven — stay where you are!” Miss Oglesby — “Bradford, use triangle in a sentence.” “Brad” Allin — “If fish don’t bite on grasshoppers, try angle worms.” Silas Long recently advised “Peewee” Burchfield to go into the bakery business using the following sign: “Peewee Burchfield, Biggest Loafer in Town. ” 106 1925 The Virginian 1926 A Manual Training pupil asked Mr. Easterly when the War of 1812 was fought. After much thought Mr. Easterly replied, “Well, really, that date has slipped my mind.’’ Test: E.8 Question — “What principle do we find in Poe’s short stories?’’ Answer -“The deafness of effect, and the comedy of language.” Pardon us, Edgar A., for disturbing your slumber. Brownie C. — “You’re a coward, you’re even afraid of your shadow.” Beatrice C. —“Well, why shouldn’t I be? It looks like a crowd is following me. ” “Mule” (at hotel in Norton) — “I tell you I won’t have this room. I’m not paying out good money for a chicken coop with a folding bed in it. You needn’t think just because I’m from -. ” Elevator Boy (disgustedly) — “Aw, get in, this ain’t your room, this is the elevator.” Some answers given in a Junior High History Class on the World War: The “Big Four” who attended the Peace Conference were Wilson, Lord George, the one standing in the door and the one standing behind. They represented the following countries: United States, England, New York and Bluefield. ” The United States entered the World War in 1792. Columbus was appointed commander-in-chief of the Allied Armies. Mr. Lockett — “ What do you mean by driving at 60 miles an hour, Henry?” Henry — “I was just hurrying home to keep from an accident, father.” Eugene McEver — “I heard they are going to make 6-hour periods.” “Dotty” Rutherford — “I object to that.” “Mac”— “W hy?” “Dotty” — “Because six hours is too long to sleep.” Mrs. Akers — “Who can name the other work of Hay?” Garland Cunningham (after everyone else had tried) —“The Little Breeches. ” Mrs. Akers — “G arland always brings up the rear.” Miss Burrows — “How many of you want a 10c copy of “The Scarlet Letter?’’ Bascom Scyphers — “I will go in with Bradford and get one.” 1925 The Virginian 1926 Elva Latture Viola JOnes Ed GloVer Annette FErguson Bonnie MaIden JameS Crockett Oliver Buchanan GarLand Creger BrownIe Campbell Virginia White Toots Dungan Miss Burrows — “ Do any of you know if there are any wildflowers around here? ” Troy Chandler -“This school is full of them.’’ Robert Davis says that among motorists, when they oil not, neither do they spin. Oliver Buchanan — “Father, what does collegebred mean?” Mr. Buchanan — “A four-year loaf.” Robert Preston — “Did you get all those questions in that test?” David Kingsolver -“Yes, it’s the answers that I missed.” Billy Dickey “If you are left-handed, do you have appendicitis in the left side?” Kenneth Owen — “Mr. King is worse than a immigration officer.” Fred Scyphers — “W hy?” Kenneth —“He has swiped their slogan: ‘They shall not pass’.” Eugene McEver —“Brother ‘Mule,’ ain’t this life full of woes?” “Mule” Sublett — “It isn’t the woes that I mind, it’s the giddaps.” Tootsie Dungan — “Mr. Nunley, may I speak to you a minute?” Mr. Nunley- -“No, Evelyn, I told you I would not permit you to speak to nobody. ” Tootsie — “I see. May I speak to Viola?” Mr. King — “What’s the difference between moths and butterflies?” James Barker —“Moths fly at night and butter flies in the day time.” Gordon Aronhime (just before exams) — “Just think, Mr. Nunley, this is the last time we’ll get to talk all the period in here.” Mr. Nunley — “Yes, I know it, and no one is gladder of it than I.” 108 1925 The Virginian 1926 WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF Annette Ferguson wasn’t sucking her thumb? Harvey wasn’t tardy for a whole week? Phyllis wasn’t talking? Laura and Ethel missed a question? “Perculator” Hoover knew his lesson? We went to chapel two mornings in succession? Jane was fat? Peewee was slim? Jim Crockett didn’t have a girl? Mr. Loomis would forget to sing No. 98? Mr. King hated bugs and reptiles? Lucille Newman wasn’t giggling? Norton Smith stayed awake the last period? Miss Hanson had big feet? Dutch skipped the first period with Virginia present? Edna quit combing her hair in class? Herman Baker quit arguing? Alys Lavinder was redheaded? ALL SENIORS FAILED!!! Oh! Outch!! Ungh!!! Randolph Roberts — “If the president would die who would get the job?’’ Virginia Litton “Why, the vice-president, of course.” Randolph — “Goodness no, the undertaker would?” The best case of remembrance in Virginia High for a long time happened when “Brad” Allin on the way to Kingsport to play basket-ball remembered that he had forgotten his clothes. NEVERMORE I. Could you tell what the trouble was When those two girls went astray And so suddenly did scamper And in the closet, hide away? When Mrs. Parrish came to view them And with lectures full of lore Made their little spines just shiver While they whispered, “Nevermore?” 109 1925 The Virginian ii. I wonder what ’twas all about Our Han(d)som teacher at the desk, Pirouetting round in great distress And crying loud in anguished tones, “Please someone, come and crush its bones!” A hero to her rescue came — Poor mousie has gone on before, His dying song, “Oh, Nevermore!” III. Whene’er a speaker comes to school, Some uninvited guests appear. All species of the canine tribe — So frisky, brave, with joy alive. Alas one day a scholar came And used such ponderous words They fell down prostrate, on the floor, While faintly barking, “Nevermore!” IV. Can anyone find the test tubes? Did you see them go astray? Or were they really broken And hastily cast away? The echo comes to mock us We plan till our brains are sore, But the King is sure to catch us, And we’ll plead, “Oh, Nevermore!” V. Oh! What was that great explosion? From whence did it eminate? Can someone answer the question, Or are all too dead to state? A weak voice calls from the “Smith,” lab And we know that all troubles are o’er. We silently clear up the debris, And firmly resolve, Nevermore! VI. Now when asked the single question Of the Editor-in-Chief “Would you always like this business And the annual honor keep?” Lo! She raised her hands in horror And in tones ne’er heard before — Gave the clarion call for freedom, Then she murmured, “Nevermore!” Jane Smith. 1926 no 1925 The Virginian 1926 SOME THINGS THE SENIORS HAVE LEARNED AND ARE WILLING TO PASS ON: 1 — On a cold day, if the study-hall clock is not wound it will stop. This will also happen on a warm day. 2 It has been found that Tea Berry Chewing Gum will retain its shape indefinitely when left alone on the under side of a desk. 3 In Virginia High building the pupils find it difficult to ascend the steps in the north end corridor without raising one foot above the other. 4 — It is said that the Esquimos show no surprise at the sight of snow. 5 The pupils of Virginia High are seldom shocked when they see Coach Reuning trying to sell season tickets. 6 — It is said that in certain parts of Scott County the people prefer to go to bed after nightfall. 7 — It is rumored in Australia that a giraffe has never been know to build its nest in a tree. 8 — After long and careful investigation it has been decided that a General Course requires less work than a Latin Course. 9 Further investigation has established the fact that a greater number of pupils elect the General Course.
