We’ll never forget that football game That brought us added fame When we held them in the end zone To preserve our glorious name. The gay times on our outings, The banquets every year. The teachers, too, who worked with us. They all now seem so dear. And as this year draws to a close Best friends must part at last, But well we know the future holds Fond memories of the past. — Jeanette Feathers SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS LaVerne Gross President Beverly Canter Vice-President Beattie Hearst T reasurer Bob Combs Sergeanf-at-Arins Jack Stoots Sergeant-at-Arms (Not in Picture) Jeanette Feathers Secretary SENIOR HAROLD AKERS " A full rich nature, free to trust, Faithful and always sternly just.” RUTH ALMANY " Her air, her manner, all who saw admired, Courteous, tho’ coy and gentle, tho’ retired.” JACK ARNOLD " When he starts to think, Trouble is brewing.” TED BARB " He is a very good sport, so they all say, And greatly ensnared in the feminine way.” CHRISTINE BOOHER " I am happy, from care I am free; Why can’t all girls be like me?” CONRAD BOOHER " A quiet boy, minds his own affairs.

VIRGINIA Playing its first game of the sea- son Virginia High’s team journeyed to Erwin on September 6 where a sluggishly played contest with a strong team ended in a score of 25-0 in favor of Erwin.

The game ended in our favor 26-6. JOHNSON CITY VS.

Spurgeon E ' Arb Sharrett Neblett Earp Creger LETTERMEN SALTVILLE VS. VIRGINIA Virginia, with its offense and de- fense clicking, scored a 26-0 vic- tory over a battle air minded Salt - ville eleven.

VIRGINIA Traveling 51 yards for the only score of the game on a cleverly executed forward-lateral passing pi iy, Virginia edged out Abingdon 6-0. Perry scored the lone touch- down. GRUNDY VS. VIRGINIA On October 11, Virginia took on the Grundy Golden Hurricane and came out of the hard fought game 19-19. Long runs and fine defensive work of the lines featured the con- test.

Grayson Montgomery Akers Bryant Arrants Long a LETTERMEN Virginia lost a hard fought game to Norton, district 8 champions, by a thin margin of 7-6. All the scoring of the bitterly fought game was packed in the second period. Stump’s accurate placekick proved to be the winning point. TENNESSEE VS. VIRGINIA (City Championship) A valiant Virginia High eleven, beset by the breaks, but refusing to yield when the chips were down, fought a heavier Tennessee High team to a scoreless tie, as a crowd of over 7,000 watched the gridiron classic. The contest, bitterly fought and tensely played from whistle to whistle, wrote a new chapter in city championship annals, as for the first time a tie was recorded. Six members of the squad — Capt. )im Kelly, Tammy Farnsworth, Buddy Earp, Bob McNally, Gordon Stuart, and Pete Booher — were chosen on the All-City eleven.

Although the Virginia team had met a terrible defeat in the first game, the team staged a wonderful comeback, and it seemed that the Vikings might sink. However, at the final whistle the Tennesseans won by a small margin, 36-30. DISTRICT TOURNAMENT Winning seven and losing three conference games, Virginia traveled to Marion to compete in the District Seven Tournament held on February 28th and March 1st.

Those lucky enough to be invited had a very good time. Of course it was a big success! November 22! The time has finally arrived for that " big night”. The Annual Football Banquet given by the P. T. A. was held in the cafeteria. Our orange and black school colors were carried out beautifully in the decorations and place cards, and the food was superb. This is always one of the most anticipated, and largest affairs of the year. After the banquet a dance, sponsored by the Y-Teens, was held at Hotel Bristol. It was truly a wonderful evening and a memory we will cherish always. Next on the social calendar comes a Civitan Outing, given on December 7 at Mas- sengill’s. Signs of winter in the air and Christmas spirit made things exciting and so much fun! December 18 th, a day we all looked forward to — the day of the Christmas Plays. Under the able direction of Miss Curtin, the Dramatic Club gave three plays entitled " Don’t Open Until Christmas”, " A By-line for St. Luke”, and " Along Came Christ- mas”. They were very good. February 14! Yes, and a Valentine Dance given by the Girls’ Hi-Y and Junior Parrish-Vance Foundation highlighted this day. The dance was given at the Twin- Teen Tavern. Decorations of the day were used. It was a lovely dance and everyone had fun. As this, the 1947 Virginian goes to press, we still have many exciting social ac- tivities to look forward to. I can hardly wait for: the Beauty Contest, Junior and Sen- ior Banquet, the Spring Plays, Senior Play, Club Outings, Date Night, Senior Outing, Miss Curtin’s Piano and Expression Recital, Speech Night, Class Night, and last but not least Graduation Exercises on June 4. Carolyn Carlson, Society Editor SNAPSHOTS CLASS HISTORY Our history began way back in the year 1942 when we were tiny tots starting on a four-year journey to the port of Graduation. The gangplank of the good ship, V.H.S., was lowered and on clamored a large crew of excited, and very much frightened seventh graders. Our captain, Betsy Cox, guided us safely to our first port, Freshman. Here our journey really began because we were beginning to grow up and were starting to high school. Then, on to our next destination, Sophomore. Jimmy Reuning was our leader for that part of our voyage. There were the storms known as " Tests,” that shook the ship and left us pretty giddy, but most of the crew fared well. After we reached Sophomore we were beginning to feel more at home way out on the high seas. We never got seasick then. Well, maybe just a little, if there was an exceptionally large storm. G. A. Fuller, as captain, led us to our next port, Junior, and our journey was half way over. Upon reaching Junior, we were hardened seamen ready to face anything that roved the seas, we thought, but there came the huge hurricanes known as Exam- inations which came twice yearly and struck terror into the hearts of the crew. We were sure that when the " Exams” struck the ship all aboard would sink beneath the waves and never be seen again. However, the ship would emerge and sail away with only a few washed overboard, the more hardy being able to cling to the ship until the danger was past. Our survival that year was due to the untiring efforts of the higher officials (teachers) and Captain Jack Harkins. Then to the next destination, Senior, and we are on the last leg of the journey to the port of Graduation. We have chosen LaVerne Gross as our leader for this last and most important part of our voyage. Land has been sighted and now the good ship, V.H.S., is being tied up to the dock of the port of Graduation. The gangplank is being lowered and we are ready to descend and embark upon our journeys into the future. Dick McKenzie, Historian SNAPSHOTS CLASS PROPHECY Good evening, ladies and gentlemen.
