Aulick Burke, Roland Galliher, Chairman; Joseph B. An Pelt, Superintendent ot Schools; Mrs. Robert Kistner, Clerk; Mrs. a. G. Stuart, F. Blair Preston. Page 5 Kn fUemorfam Air. James Phipps was a Christian gentleman, an excellent citizen, and a friend for eighteen years to the students and teachers of drginia High School. His services for the welfare of others, his faithfulness to responsibilities assigned, his loyalty to friends and associates, and his devotion to duty stand out and manifest a man of character. Mr. Phipps taught us how to go the second mile; to know the joy of satisfaction of a job well done; he taught us how to assume the responsibility for a task assigned; he taught us how to smile under difficulties and hardships; and he taught us, in a glorious way, how to serve people and be a good neighbor. Two things were uppermost in the mind of our friend— his home and his work. These were to him happiness, contentment and satisfaction. The happiness in his work was sensed when teachers and students were warm and comfortable. The satisfaction that he realized iir his work was when the building was clean, comfortable, in order and secure. The contentment that he knew was at even-tide, as he looked back on the day, remembering the smiling faces of happy boys and girls and the pleasant and warm smiles of appreciation of kind teachers. The spirit of our good neighbor moves on out into the great eternity where he shall know greater happiness and unlimited satisfaction, for there the greatest of all teachers, Jesus, shall present him before the Lord of Hosts, and declare to our Heavenly Father: “Well done, good and faithful servant;— enter thou into the joy of the Lord.” Joseph B. Van Pelt, Superintendent of Sehools Page 6 1 OUR SUPERINTENDENT Joseph B. Van Pelt, B.A., M.A. Our annual staff and sponsors, with the excellent cooperation of the teachers and students, are to be congratulated upon presenting such an appropriate and beautiful volume of the “Vir- ginian” to the seniors and student body. As we recognize this 1950 to be the beginning of a new era for America — the leader among the nations, all subject to atomic power with its tremendous implications, may we admonish the seniors and those who are to be the subject of future volumes to consider it their dnty to love our country, to support its constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and defend it against all enemies. We say to the seniors, in the words of Longfellow when he referred to the “Ship of State”: “Our hearts, our hopes, are all with thee. Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our tears, Our faith triumphant o’er our fears. Are all with thee,— are all with thee.” Joseph B. an Pelt Mr. Van Pelt Mr. Hammack Page 8 OUR PRINCIPAL Mr. Theo. T. Ilammack began his higher edueation at Ilanipden-Sydney Col- lege where he received a B.S. degree. I ' Voin Hampden-Sydney he went to the University of North Carolina for his M.A. degree. Ilis teaching experience inclndcs Dun- lap High School in Alleghany County, ' ir- ginia, and New Hope High in Augusta County, N ' irginia. He left New Hope to become principal of alley High School in Augusta County. In 1945 Mr. Ilammack became principal of brginia High School, where his ever present interest in the school and its activi- ties have made of it a school of which every- one is very pioud. Tiii ' .o. T. Haaimack Mrs. a. J. Eaton OUR ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL After graduating from brginia High School, Mrs. A. J. Eaton attended State Teachers College at Earms’illc, Virginia, and the University of Virginia. She received her B.S. degree from King College. Except for one year at Mendota Mrs. Eaton has taught in the Bristol, brginia schools, two years at V ashington School and the remaining time at Virginia High School, where she has taught mathematics along with her duties as assistant principal.

And the dnllest has stepped aside; We shall rest— and faith, we all need it!— We shall rest for a moment or two, Till the wonderful school of Experience Shall set ns to work anew! Then those who have gone shall be happy; They shall pass through life’s higher grade; They shall face the world’s difficult problems Wbth conntenance unafraid Thev shall pass through each test as they meet it At tiie sonnding of duty’s stern call. I’hey shall work c ' cry day— when they ha e to— And never be tired at all! And only the big world shall praise ns. And only the big world shall blame, ' riiongh we work for the joy of the winning.

Class History In the year nineteen hundred and forty-.scven the Seliool Board of Bristol, hrginia, deereed that tlie sehool system must eonsist of twel e grades instead of eleven. Out of this ehaos arose a determined but eonfused group of twenty-six students. We were elassified as sophomores al- though there sere not supposed to be any sophomores that year. We ehosc Fred Aekerman to lead us through our sophomore year. As Juniors we were twenty-two strong and we were ready for anything that might be given to us to do. After some debate as to our ability, the job of running Miss Virginia High night was given us. This was our ehanee to prove ourselves in the eyes of the other elasses. Vc worked together and gave a perform- anee rated with the best. We also gave a junior play. With the money we netted from these two enterprises we gave the junior-senior banquet in style. hthout the able help of our sponsor. Miss Evelyn McClellan, we feel that we could not ha e clone these things; for when we were discouraged, she dro ' e us on. Our president for this year of glory was Meryle Owens. At last we were ■-eniors. Although we were a far ery from the himclred-elesen which graduated the year before, we were still honored by the underclassmen just as much. We have worked hard to try to keep up with the larger classes and hope that we have done as well as the elasses in the past. Vc hope that the elasses in the future enjoy their school clays as much as we have.

It has tried to follow this throughout the year and has accomplished many things with the help of the senior sponsor, the Ci itan Club and faculty adv iser, Coach Louis Kovacs. Working together has been most enjoyable. The Junior Civitan Club is associated with the International Senior Civitan and works with it. The Junior Civitan keeps in contact with the Senior Civitan by sending two of its members to its meeting and luncheon every Monday. Under the constitution of the Senior Civitan, the Junior Civitan has a maximum of twenty members; each was chosen by a unanimous vote of the membership. The Club’s project for the year was keeping the trophies and trophy case clean and in neat order. It also sponsored the boys’ inter-class tourna- ments, as well as planned the showing of some movies of the most im- portant football games played by the Virginia High team. The Club had one outing at the first of the year. It was held at Woolwine’s Cabin, on Ilolston River. Several more outings have been planned before the year is over. Officers for the year were: President, Bunny Saltz; Vice-President, Bobby Jordan; Treasurer, Boyce Goodman; Secretary and Sweetheart, Betty Lowe; Sergeant-at-Arms, Don Almany; Chaplain, Herman Baker; Sponsor, Louis Kovacs. After the first half of the year. Bunny Saltz grad- uated and the office of president was taken over by Bobby Jordan.

The main duty consists of patrolling certain corners near school where traffic is heavy before school, during lunch and after school. The Patrols, as these members are called, serve as policemen and direct traffic accordingly. Page Senior High Seated: I. to r.

It is composed of the sophomore, junior, and senior classes. Bill Henry served as the first president eleven years ago. Our legislative body consists of the Prefect Council, which meets every day, and the Student Council, which convenes every week. These two groups give students a chance to present their problems and help keep students informed of school activities. d ' he special projects for this year were to get a much-needed student club room at V.H.S. and send rcpre.sentatives of Virginia High School to the state and district conventions. Promotion of the Honor System and improving the general conduct has been one of the most important and most stressed of the projects. Some of our larger accomplishments were; amending the consti- tution, selling shakers and badges for the Virginia-Tennessee football game, awarding student let- ters at graduation to outstanding seniors, selling school supplies, selling hats and tee shirts, keeping the school medicine cabinet supplied and sponsoring our school paper. The Little Virginian. The purposes of the S.C.A. are to promote leadership and good citizenship at Virginia High School and to create a more cooperative spirit between the teachers and the students. Officers of the 1949-1950 year were; Alice Rouse, President; David Coffey, Vice-President; Mary Stant, Secretary; Rita Witten, Treasurer; and Barbara Gardner, Reporter. Mrs. W. W. Fillinger is the Senior S.C.A. sponsor. Page 40 The Junior Higli Student Cooperative Association was organized in 1941. This organization supplied the well defined need of giving the Junior High pupils a definite part in school training and participation. At the close of each school year, new officers and council members are chosen by the junior student body for the following year. The officers are chosen on the basis of their scholarship, citizenship, and leadership demonstrations. At the beginning of each school year, after the or- ganization has been set up, goals and projects arc established to work for the training and better- ment of all. Such goals and projects may include assembly programs, beautification of the school, attendance drives, helping in community drives, encouraging church attendance, and daily devo- tions in home rooms. The Junior S.C.A. affords an opportunity for training in leadership and responsibility as well as training in cooperation among pupils and faculty members. The Junior Student Cooperatnc Association adheres to the belief that “cleanliness is next to godliness.” Our organization keeps this motto in action continuously. It is a project for every year. One of the projects that was financed for the past year was the placing of containers in the halls for the disposal of waste paper. The officers for the 1949-1950 school year were: Bill Gross, President; Sarah Neblett, Vice- President; Jimmy Carlson, Secretary; Annette Richardson, Treasurer. Reporters: Jo Ann Penly, Ninth; Don McLemore, Eighth; Peggy Gilly, Seventh.

The elub serves as the link between high sehools and the Young Mens’ Christian Assoeiation. The Boys’ Ili-Y has had several aetivities and projeets for this year. At Christmas time the club members enjoyed playing Santa Claus to a small boy. Each month it attended Church in a body; thus it visited many denominations. The Boys’ Hi-Y has had a very successful year under Buddy Holloway, President; Kenny Wor- ley, hce-President; Joe Long, Secretary and Treasurer; Roland Countiss, Sergeant-at-Arms; Betty Bell, Sweetheart; and Mr. Rasnick, Sponsor.

GIRLS’ HI-Y The Girls’ Hi-Y is a religious organization; its purpose is to create, maintain and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian living. Its platform is “clean speech, clean sports, clean living and clean scholarship.” Its slogan is “service.” In November the club had a benefit card party in the new gym; it was given for the purpose of making money so as to send a representative to the summer Tri-Y Camp. The club has be- come affilia ted with the State Ili-Y organization. At Christmas time, along with the Foundation Club, the Girls’ Hi-Y took a family of four for its Santa Pal. In January the club had a “Date Night” at which time each member was allowed to bring a date. In March Easter lilies were sold for the crippled children, and in May it held its final outing at Hungry Mother Park. The officers for the year were Patsy Lilley, President; Jane Holmes, hce-President; Marilyn Hecht, Secretary; Ann Poindexter, Treasurer; Margaret McNeer and Nancy Berkley, Reporters.

KEY CLUB The Virginia High Sdiool Key Club is a part of Key Club Internatioual. a club sponsored by Kiwauis International, for “key boys” in high school with the motto, “We Build”; the Key Club strives to develop leadership and prepares its members for good citizenship. In the beginning, Bristol had one Kev Club, established in 1946, with fifteen members each from Virginia High School and ' rennessee High School. One of the club’s main objectives was to strengthen relationship between the two schools. This year, in order to create more unity and to simplify business, the club has been divided into two separate clubs; one in each of the two high schools. This way, the two schools are bound together by joint meetings and projects, and the two clubs are much more efficient than formerly. This year the Key Club shared in selling concessions at school, helped in the Red Cross drive, sold tickets for the Kiwanis Minstrel, sponsored an assembly program, sponsored the Spring Re- eital of Miss Hardinge’s Ballet Sehool, gave a dance at school, took a Santa Pal at Christmas, and had other projects. One of our members, Lee Brantley, was elected Lieutenant-Governor of the ninth division of Key Clubs, and represented the club at the distriet eonvention in Louisville, Kentucky. Miss Alice Rouse, the Sweetheart, and Lyman Reynolds represented the elub in the annual beauty contest. Officers for this year were: President, Sammy Marncy; Vice-President, Edward Sanders, Sec- retary, Lyman Reynolds; Treasurer, Phil Stauber; Sweetheart, Aliee Rouse; Faeulty Sponsor, Mr. Powers.

Page 48 DIVERSIFIED OCCUPATIONS CLUB The program of Acational Education for Diversified Occupations is a part-time cooperative program of education in which the business establishments in the community cooperate witli the scliool by providing w ' ork experiences and vocational instruction for a selected number of high school students, who are placed in employment half of each school day. When the student en- ters the program, he continues to pursue at least two additional academic subjects during each of the remaining years in high school. He spends at least three hours a day working under supervi- sion in some employment, and at least one period each day in school recci ing specific informa- tion related to the vocation in which he is placed. One is able to secure suffieient credits for college entranee while taking D.O. Only one hour of elass w ' ork is required each day, with no outside assignments. I’wo credits are given for each year’s w ' ork. The Diversified Occupations Club attempts to expand each student’s knowl- edge and understanding of eommon problems, to develop stability and self-confidence, to encour- age improvement in scholarship, to cultivate a friendly and cooperative spirit among members, parents and employees. There are students training as dental assistants, general office workers, in store management, bakery management, architectural drawing, cabinet making, office, filling sta- tion and hotel management.

In 1935 the library was named for Mrs. Virginia Parrish, who then became sponsor of the club. The club, which has varied in size, is composed of student librarians in the high school. This year members of the seventh and eighth grade classes have assisted for short periods of time but have not had membership in the club. The student librarians, who help with routine tasks in the library, serve a population of over 800 at Virginia High, with a book collection of more than 6000 and many other materials, such as pamphlets and magazines. They also help with the process- ing of books for the elementary school libraries.

SENIOR Y-TEENS The chief aims of the Y-Tcen organization arc to rlc elop strong cliaracter and promote a better spirit of friendship among onr neighbors at liomc and abroad. Fi e chapters of Y-Teen girls in hrginia High School ha e tried to follow these three ideals. “To find and give the best” is part of their code and to this end th e girls have volnntcered their services to the organizations whose work makes “Bristol a good place in which to live.” The Tag ISay drives sponsored by the Bristol Tuberculosis Association, The Bristol Cancer Society, the Yterans of Foreign Wars, “Poppy Day” and the Kiwanis Club “Kid I ay” have all been con- dneted by the ' I ' - ' Peens. As olnnteer workers, they have served many hours in the offices of the Bristol Chapters of the American Red Cross. To help make Bristol a safer place, the Y-Tcens conducted a traffic survey, pointing out the spots wliere pedestrians were most careless of their own safety. A joint meeting with our Y- ' I ecn neighbors in Bristol, ' I ' cnncssee, is held monthly. A coun- cil composed of all chapter presidents and advisers directs the work of this group of more than two hundred girls. These groups meet in the Y- ' I ' ccn dub room in the Y.W.C.A. To our neighbors overseas, the girls have sent gift boxes through the American Red Cross and in cooperation with all Y-Tcens they ha c shipped boxes of chocolate bars. With the work that has been accomplished there have been many play times, too. Several of the girls attended Y-Tcen camp at Ily-Lakc and many of the girls attended the Regional Con- vention at Sullivan High School. Chapter parties, dances, and picnics will long be remembered, but making other people happy, too, is a cry important part of the Y-Tcen code and so the girls adopted several children from the Santa Pal list at Christmas, as well as cntcrtaiir ' ng the children from the Janie Hammitt Home several times throughout the year.

It had a Santa Pal at Christmas, gave a box of Christmas cards to the Veterans’ Home, took some of the Janie Hammitt children to a movie, with the aid of two of the Y-Teen members. In April it gave a Sadie Hawkins dance, which was considered very successful.

The Tterans’ Facility in Johnson City has been one of the main projects. Cup cakes and homemade eandy liave been sent to them several times, as well as Christmas eards, games, prizes, magazines and sacks of Christmas candy. ' The Janie Ilammitt Home is one of the most popular plaees for the students to visit. Indi- vidual stockings were filled for the children at Christmas, and throughout the year the students have taken them to the mo ies and sent them gifts of various kinds. Jr. Red Cross members have taken gifts to the Katie Lockett Home and the children’s ward in the hospital. Several visits have been made to the Old Folks’ Home and baskets of fruit have been sent to them and to families of our school. Girls of hrginia High School worked in the Red Cross offiee, assembling materials for the campaign; they also helped to raise funds for the campaign. Probably the greatest contribution was made at the Christmas season when organizations in the high sehool adopted twenty children and their families from the Santa Pal list. Several of these organizations helped the Red Cross to fill the gift boxes to be sent overseas. More than thirty of these boxes were filled and shipped fhis year. SENIOR COUNCIL OF JR.

Resume of the Season September 9: The hrginia High Beareats opened the football season of 1949 by defeating a rugged Tazewell team to break a jinx of long standing by a seore of 20 to 12. This vietory, howexer, was later gi en to 1 azewell as a forfeit. September 16: The Beareats took on an out of distriet foe, Johnson City, and defeated them by a seore of 27 to 0. This put the ’Cats on their way to a very sueeessful season. T ' he N’irginia boys showed the kind of blocking and tackling that led the team of 1948 through an excel lent season. MR.

Although outweighed man for man, the Bearcats blocked several kicks and passed for the tallies. The Bearcats were paced b ' strong defen- sive play. September 30: Our squad was host to the William-King squad of Abingdon and took them in their stride by a score of 32 to 6. Our running and passing was a thing of split second timing and almost e ' ery play was good for a gain. October 7: The Marion Hurricane blew itself out against the Bearcat squad. They fell to the conquering Bearcats in a 32 to 0 contest. This was another district foe under our belts. There were several long runs made by the big three of the backfield.

Again the Bearcats faced a team whieh outweighed them by a wide margin. The Elkhorn team, as a whole, weighed almost a ton, but the boys from irginia had faced heavy teams before and with speed and deception routed the Elkhorn team 30 to 0. October 21 : Idle brginia High team plowed an old enemy under when they defeated the Richlands High team by a score of 46 to 13. Two other Bearcat touchdowns were called back by penalties. 4 his was one of the best games the squad played. October 28: hrginia High finished its distriet play by defeating the Golden Hurricane of Grundy in a very muddy contest with a score of 32 to 7.

Coach Louis Ko acs did something that no otlier coach has ever accomplished at Virginia High School, had an undefeated baseball team. The team this year (1948) won the eity and dis- trict crown, and also beat the Emory and Henry “B” team. ' I heir victories were due to hard and conseeutive hitting. Excellent defensive play, as well as fine pitching, held the opponents to minimum runs. ' I ' he team was also well trained in the funda- mentals, and it had the will to fight for victory when the going got tough. Those graduating from this superb team are as follows: R. C. Blankenship, Bill Allison, Kenny Worley, “Bunny” Saltz, “Doonie” Jessee, Phil Long. hrginia 17 Tazewell , 2 hrginia 11 Riehlands . 0 hrginia 15 Marion . 0 hrginia 9 Lebanon . 7 hrginia 22 Chilhowic 2 hrginia . . . . . , 5 Emory Henry “B” 4 hrginia 7 Lebanon 3 N irginia 5 Marion 1 hrgiuia 12 Chilhowie 0 hrginia 16 Riehlands 4 hrginia 7 Abingdon 1 Virginia .. 8 Tazewell . 7 hrginia .. 5 Tennessee . 2 hrginia 3 Saltville . 0 Coach Louis Kovacs Page 72 Virginia High Bearcats opened the 1949 track season with their crosstown rivals, Tennessee High. Tiie Vik- ings whipped them on a nincldy track by a score of 4S-4T 4 he contest was tied up to the last event, the 880 relav. In a five way ineef wifh Johnson City, Tennessee High, Kingsport and Klizabcthton, the Bearcats came out in fourth place, scoring 1 3 points. Johnson City was the winner, with 54 points. The Virginia High team came out iii fourth place in the Milligan Relays. ' I ' his was a moral victory for the team, which showed the same spirit that won so many athletic events for the Bearcats in all fields of sports in 1948-49. It was considered an honor because the team entered only nine events and placed in six of them. ' I ' lie members of fhe mile relay team should have been patted on the back for winning fhe mile relay. The Cindermen fook the distriet meet by a score of 85 to 14, with Lebanon High School the only competing team from the district. In the State track meet irginia High Bearcats came out in a tie for 5th place. They were paced by John Harrington, who placed in the 100 and 220 yard dashes. Gordon Stuart won third place in the 440 yard run. Also, the mile relay team came in second. 4 ' his gave them a total of eight points. Coach Hugh David TRACK I lanington and Stuart won first and second places respectively. 5 GIRLS 7TH GRADE TEAM Front row, left to right: Eallin, King- solver, Casmeyer, ' innie, Sawyer, Ackerman.

Her smiling face has cheered up many a downhearted senior. Vivian is the class secretary and a mem- ber of the Foundation Club. Georgia Jones is a newcomer also, but she has proven to be a great asset to the senior class. She is keenly on the alert and is ahr ' ays in the thick of a debate or discus- sion. Georgia is a member of the Beta Club, Y-Teens, and Dramatics Club. She is also a member of the annual staff and senior class S.C.A. representative. Not pictured: Erwin Saltz Page 82 PERSONALITIES Spruill Forbush left Bristol at the end of the seventh grade, but returned to us at the beginning of his sophomore year. His re- turn was very fortunate for us, for w ' e have depended upon him for guidance and lead- ership all along the way. His contributions to the Boys’ Hi-Y and Latin Club have been outstanding. His many activities speak for themselves. He w ' as Junior Class ' freasurer, best all-round Sophomore and Junior, Class Historian, Business Manager of the Little Virginian, and Editor-in-chief of the Vir- ginian. Along with his many acti ities he found time to take part in athletics, having been a member of the track team in his Junior and Senior years. Rita Witten came to us from Richlands High School in her junior year. Richlands’ loss was surely our gain in her case. Men- tioning her many activities will tell what a really valuable person she has been to our group and to the school. These activities include Girls’ Glee Club, Latin Club, Dra- matics, Beta Club, Junior Parrish- Vance Foundation, Head Cheerleader, S.C.A. T reasurer, Little Virginian Typist, and Busi- ness Manager of the Virginian. Wherever Rita is, there you w ' ill find a leader and a W ' orker.

It was quite a year. That same year in Burlington, North Carolina, workmen were clearing a nearby cornfield to build a small textile mill. Some local businessmen were risking their money in a bedspread manufacturing venture. That was the beginning of Burlington Mills, a company destined to play a leading role in the rise of man-made yarn from obscurity to a place of major importance in textiles. During the past 25 years Burlington Mills has grown from one small mill at Burlington into one of the world ' s largest producers of rayon fabrics. It now has 74 plants In six states and four foreign countries employing over 27,000 people. Teamwork between management and skilled, loyal em- ployees made Burlington Mills a textile leader. Teamwork also produced the highest quality textile products at the lowest possible cost. This successful formula was possible because American free enterprise permitted constant improvements In mate- rials and machinery, development of our human resources, better methods of production, and an incentive for progress and growth. The formula brought better quality fabrics to the consumer. It brought better jobs, higher pay, increased benefits, and excellent working conditions to employees. And so, 25 years after, Burlington Mills wears a badge of success. Its multitude of products are truly " Woven Into the Life of America " . Sales Offices; New York, N. r.
