Knowledge must be worked for, studied for, and thought forg its true value is realized only when it is put into circulation in one form or another. Aflcr four years of formal education, the Class of 1939 emerges into the world where the true worth of knowledge will be demonstrated. As we emlvarlf upon our careers we may well hold in mind the example set forth by one of our distinguished faculty, who has become one of the most learned men in his profession. In recognition of his success in the pursuit of his vocation, his high standards and ideals, his long years of service to the college, his patient tolerance as a teacher, and his fine qualities as a man, we consider it a distinct privilege to dedicate this forty-fifth volume of THE.

THEME of the administration can well be expressed as Ha bigger and better V. P. I." The continuous growth of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute, both in physical facilities and in academic standing, can be attributed to the untiring and unceasing endeavors of PRESIDENT JULIAN A. BURRUSS, PH.D., LL.D. THE DEAN S JOHN EDWARD WILLIAMS Dean of the College EARLE BERTRAM NORRIS Dean of Engineering HARVEY LEE PRICE Dean of Agriculture THE DEANS, in cooperation with the President, are responsible for the development of their own schools as well as the rapid growth of the college as a whole. Daily, problems must be solved by these men which shape the policy and future of V. P. 1. They are directly responsible for a unified faculty and a balanced and standardized academic program. S ' "42-45 ,, 'S ' l . S CLASSES MILITARY hL SENIOR CLASS HISTORY Entering Tech with the largest group ever to assemble as a class at V. P. I. the '39 Freshmen followed the involuntary path of all freshmen and were soon initiated into the ways and means of the so-called "lVIisters." The class became more organized as the "Thirty-Ninersn learned to loosen up and congenialize with fellow classmates: a set of officers were elected to form the figurehead to guide the youngsters in their stormy Freshman year. W. Ruby was given the honor of heading the class with R. Belcher, Vice President: W. E. Leckie, Secretary: S. F. Barnes, Treasurerg and S. Hill, Sergeant-at-Arms, assisting him in his managerial role. Spring turned to summer and the eyes of the '39 crew turned to black belts and no more "lVIisters." C-rown-up Freshmen began to assume sophisticated airs and, with pained boredom, unbended enough to instruct the wide-eyed '40's in the life of being a Techman. This year, Jack Ruby again held the reigns for the '39 band wagon, having as his subordinates S. F. Barnes, Vice President, W. E. Leckie, Secretary: and P. A. Sykes, Treasurer. I-Ialting its impetuous dash to graduation at the halfway mark, the class of '39 stopped to revue and prevue. Almost half of its original members had dropped out, shadows of new and pleasurable experiences loomed in the foreground: Ring Dance, R. O. T. C. Camp, the responsibilities and leadership of Seniordom, all merged from the infinite future into near actualities. A new set of officers, headed by Neil Wood, took charge as follows: R. Belcher, Vice President: F. I... Oliver, Secretary, Guy IVIacI..aughlin, Treasurerg M. O. Bradshaw, Assistant Treasurerg and A. S. Miller, Sergeant-at-Arms. Plans for a perfect ring dance were formulated and achieved. Don Bestor and his orchestra were secured for the occasion. Coordinating the Military Juniors and the Civilian Juniors in a beautiful figure, resplendent in glistening white and silver, the young Seniors passed through their arch of expectation, received their ring from their chosen one, took their reward, and marched slowly back to the strains of "Tech Triumph," as one of the greatest events in the history of young manhood at Tech passed into memories. No doubt, the I939 Ring Dance was the best and will be the longest remembered of any in that gala series of festive sets. Passing into Capes and gold bands, our group reached its fourth and final year at V. P. I. Stories of a wild and enjoyable camp life circulated from all corners, loud and emphatic commands issued from the newly appointed commanders: and life began to assume a status of superiority and domination. New class officers were: A. Gaugler, President: N. E.. C-oldblatt, Vice President, E.. C. Comp- ton, Secretary: W. M. Land, Treasurer. For the entire four years we weren't beaten by a V. M. I. team on Thanksgiving. Each year we beat the "Flying Squadron" by a margin of six points, with the exception of last fall which ended with the famous two to two tie. As winter snows melted, as sun peeped timidly from its almost forgotten haven, worries of the forth- coming responsibilities darkened the hours of Seniors. Campus activities passed to Juniors as interviews and letters of application, coupled with heat power and cost accounting, bent the cape-worn shoulders of the job-seekers. At last, Senior Week . . . passed! . . . hnals . . . commission . . . and the coveted "skin you love to touch"-from years gone-now, a grad . . . class of '39, if you please!

As a result they have received a great deal more recognition in student circles. This was pointed out by the fact that Civilian Seniors were chosen to lead several of the well known organizations on the campus. Although the Civilian Seniors include in their numbers the men who have transferred from other schools and those who have left the ranks of the Corps of Cadets, they also include a group of men who started out as civilian students four years ago. This last mentioned group, as well as the Military Seniors, watched the Civilian Students Union grow from a small body of men, who were scarcely able to fill one section of the Stone Dormitory, to the ever-increasing body which now represents one-third of the student body. These men have realized during the past four years that they must cooperate wholeheartedly with the Corps of Cadets in order to create a greater Virginia Tech. In carrying out this end, the Civilian Seniors have participated in all types of campus activities, including scholastic, athletic, and social. The l939 Civilian Seniors all proudly point out their friends in the Corps of Cadets, and trust that the friendships they have kindered with both Civilians and Cadets during their stay here will always remain steadfast.

You, as individual members, go forth to take your places in the world: some to achieve successg all to struggle with life. In struggle or achieve- ment each of you will depend upon the things, spiritual, moral and academic, which V. P. I. has bestowed upon you. These have been yours for the taking. If you have grasped them, they will aid you much. If you have ignored them, the loss is yours. Then too, you of the graduating class have made your contribution to V. P. I. and to the Corps of Cadets. As to whether this is a better co'lege and as to whether this is a better Corps because of that con- tribution, you yourselves and the classes which follow you are the best judges. Irrespective of opportunity grasped or of contribu- tion rendered, you now become Alumni of V. P. I. with all that the term implies. To each individual of the Class of l939 the Commandant of Cadets and the members of the Military Department wish godspeed and a full measure of success in life. J. I-I.

W. GLENN Colonel The supreme commander of the Regiment is Donald Glenn, affectionately called "Duck" by his classmates. There have been many fine Cadet Colonels at Virginia Tech, but never one who worked harder to maintain the high standard of the Corps. Neil Wood, the pride of Hampton, is second in command. This popular lad has always performed his duties ably and justly. Bristol, who sent Dave Braddock to the regimental staff to he a natty and deep-voiced adjutant, should he proud of her son's fine record. "Righteous Joe" Belcher, the Regimental Supply Officer from Petersburg, has done much to further the fame of the Corps. MRS. J. R. GLENN George Worthington, from the Nation's Sponsor Capitol, is an efhcient Plans and Training Officer and a great favorite with the ladies. Roy Ben Farrell, the "Boy Wonder" from Portsmouth and Sergeant-Major, has improved administration by many long hours of work. The Regimental "Wit," who is really the Supply Sergeant, is Silas Dann, whose ready tongue and keen mind have enlivened many dull moments. These varied personalities have worked together throughout the year and compose one of the most efficient staffs the Corps has ever had. Page ISO Staff THE NINETEEN TI-IIRTY-NINE BUGLE D. W.

'VIRGINIA POLYTECI-INIC INSTITUTE OFFICERS Band Drum and Bugle Corps Band The "I-Iighty Tightiesf' as the Band is familiarly known to the Corps, numbered II5 men this year, the largest in its history. As a unit it hettered its record for music and appearance both on parade and in concert work. Under the direction of S. Schaeffer, with John S. Hill as captain, a trip was made in the fall to Durham, North Carolina, for the game hetween Virginia Tech and the University of North Carolina. Near the end of the fall quarter the hand provided the music for the Land Grant Broadcast from coast to coast over the N. B. C. Network. During the winter quarter a seminar was held and concerts were given every Sunday in May during the spring quarter. Officers of the Band did a very good job and it was only through their whole- hearted cooperation that such a success was made of the organization. THE NINETEEN TI-IIRTY-NINE BUGLE OFFICERS J. S.

Out in front as usual is the Infantry Battalion Staff, the leaders of the so-called "Lost Battalion," the pride of the Regiment. Their leader, Tiny Court I-louse's gift to V. P. I., commonly termed "Chicken Compton," plays a vital part in the efficient organization of the staff. First on your left is Ernie Vaughan, our Adjutant, whose eloquent vocal strains snaps the battalion to attention. Next in line is Jim Coleman, the battalion Supply Officer, who nor- mally answers to the name of "Goat," The invisible man in the center is Gus fwimpyl Downs, who was so busy looking for someone who would marry him that he couldn't be here for the picture. Wiley Trivett, the Sergeant-lVlajor, hails from the hills of the Cumber- land, and his one ambition is to be a great surgeon. The tall boy on the right is Mrs. C1rizzard's little it I son, Sam Billy, who also hopes to become a surgeon. MRS. LILLIE COMPTON Sponsor Page IS4 THE Staff . E. C. COMPTON ....... E. C.

Company "A" has been the leader at V. P. I. from the very first. We were the Hrst company to be organized at V. P. I.. the first to volunteer its services in the World War, and the first in every parade. The past record will ever be held up as a standard of achievement. The ever-prevailing Company "A" spirit is hard to define but easy to understand. Once a boy has lived with its men, has absorbed its spirit, and has learned the long outstanding customs, it is very difficult for him to change. Friendliness is the theory that gained us our reputation as the "BEST," and friendliness is the theory that will keep their reputation. It is easy to understand why those who have gone before us request their friends to join our organization. THE NINETEEN THIRTYANINE R. W. SCOTT .,,,.. J. H. EDDY .....,.,....

P. I. During the period that our Company has been living in the new barracks, the military bearing of the company as a whole has constantly improved. This year, under the leadership of our Captain, "Soup" Campbell, we have remained a well disciplined, a well drilled, and a neatly dressed company. The standards set by "C" Company should serve as a challenge to every other company in the regiment, and when all of the companies have attained these standards, then every man- in every company in the V.

SYKES Major I VXI Well, here they are-or perhaps we should say, there they were! This staff can well he called the "first line of defense," at least the Army thinks so when they decide to take some- onefs pretty stripes off his manly arms. The head of these "Buzzets" is "Buzzard" Sykes, who, in addition to his military prowess, is head of the Southern Colonels. Misfortune trod the tracks of our Adjutant, "Oochie" Jeffries, and he was replaced by "lVlarried-man" Nichols. The ambition of Hcuehalln Heard, our Supply Cflicer, is to read the orders in the Hollins messhall. Misfortune also rode herd on our Plans and Training Ofhcer, and Jack Ruby was replaced by "Lover" Leckie. If our athletic Sergeant-Major, "Sunny" Powers, doesn't lose his nerve, he intends defending his wrestling title at Vassar this spring. The most studious of all the "Buzzets" is our Color-Sergeant, Martin Jones, who must have been studying verv hard to miss this picture. MRS. I-I. B. SYKES Sponsor Page l92 Staff W. L. JEFFRIES... S.

Placing five out of the six men on the battalion staff at the opening of the year, we felt quite proud only to have "Yakum" Ruby and "0ochie" Jeffries returned to us . . . what a mortality rate! We listened for a full quarter to the booming voice of "Bat" Battison emanating from the second platoon, but we lost "Bat's" three stripes to Christianslaurg. From the first platoon Harrel Knight has steered the course of this unit with a quiet determination, and there were few tricks missed in this half of the company. Out in front we have Captain "Chollie" Heasty, whose staccato voice and sharp eye have made many underclassmen fall into line. This political nhigwign was assisted on the company staff by Jake Kirkman, whose sort whisperings at drill often saved the day, and by Tom Farrar, who, as First Sergeant, kept "E" Company on the straight and narrow.

There has always been the tradition of friendship and the genuine interest which. each member takes in his fellow cadet. A cordial greeting and rejoicing in each other's success has done much toward binding eternal friendship among us, and consequently has brought glory to Company F. The result has always been a harmony of high minded and honorable boys, much like a large fraternity, in which every member has the sustaining sense of a friendly duly and cooperation to inspire him. To our officers this year we owe our deepest gratitude for having done so much to uphold and perpetuate our traditions. THE NINETEEN THIRTY-NINE BUGLE OFFICERS E.. R.

"You're the pride of old V. P. I." Nowhere in the school is friendship more evident, because from the very start we were taught by our Captain the value of friendship in a school where every one looks out for himself. Because of this helpful and common-sense advice given by our Captain, there has developed a spirit of loyalty and understanding, which, in turn, has engendered an indomitable spirit of comradeship and congeniality for which Battery "L" is lmown and respected all over the campus. All of the fine qualities and noble attributes found in the members of Battery "L" can point with pride to only one thing . . . "We are one 'L' of a good battery." E. XV.

Battery "M" is led by a very capable group of officers which carry the spirit as well as discipline. Captain Jimmie Powell has done much to raise the military standing of the Battery. Our lieutenants, Jack Powers, Mel Butler, and lVl. T. Ball, have been very capable leaders and have assisted greatly in the development of the Battery. "Porky" Rider has proven himself to be one of the best First Sergeants in the Corps. The boys cooperate in every way for the advancement of the battery in military, sports, and social functions.

Not an organization, but a real family of good fellows and good friends, one for all and all for one. Nowhere on the quadrangle is there found so much disregard for class distinction as in Battery HN".

Virginia Tech is proud of the many records made by her athletes, but she is even more proud of the traditional "Tech Spirit" that has grown with her athletics.

Graduation last June took such stars as Captain Shockey, Doxey, Henry, Davis, Murray, Vecellio, Cregger, Robin- son, and Mast. The gaps left by these men were filled by only a few lettermen, with much of this year's team to be made of many promising sophomores and juniors. The season was a rather nip and tuck affair. Victories were won from Emory and l-lenry, William and Mary, and North Carolina State. Tech lost to powerful teams representing Duke, Army, Virginia, W. and L., and the University of North Caro- lina. There was a scoreless tie with the University of Richmond and the famed Z-2 tie with our traditional Turkey Day rivals, V, lVl. I.

DAVID MARION Prrrs Taclfle The Tech line was the strong point on defense this season. The end positions were held by Pierce, Oliver and Henderson. Archie Cameron started the season with great promise, but an ankle broken during practice badly crippled both himself and the team. Despite this, however, both outposts were veritable block-houses against the savage attacks of fierce opponents. The team was well supplied with two sets of superb tackles, Pitts, Coleman, Gosney, and the veteran Gaugler. The guards were the seasoned gladiators Worthington, Devlin, and the ever- present King. The center position was almost unanimously occupied by the versatile Neil Wood. Backfield positions were filled with the veterans DelVluro, Belcher, Powers, and Miller as anchormen. Less seasoned but equally spirited sophomores and juniors made the season's hack- fleld a light but fast one. . . I .... I .,-.r., The Gobblers defeated Emory and Henry in Miles Stadium in the first of their encounters. The always scrappy little college had twelve of its finest players on the injured list. The Cobblers shoved over three touchdowns in the first quarter. The reserves were substituted for the second quarter attack. Emory and Henry held them scoreless during this period. The third and fourth periods each yielded a score to the heavier V. P. l. team. Al Miller, the senior halfback, was responsible for three of the five touchdowns. The other two scores were made by Jimmy Fixx, sophomore halfback, The passing game was represented by several combinations of the DeMuro-Woolwine duet. On September 24 the battling Gobblers were beaten back by the powerful Duke team. These boys, who were later to become Rose Bowl contestants, defeated Tech eighteen to nothing.

Three separate teams were used to pummel the Cobblers into defeat by crashing over touchdowns in the first, third and fourth periods. The only scoring threat V. P. I. offered was at the end of the third period. Cosney, tackle, broke through Duke's line on her own thirty and blocked the great Tipton's punt. Frank Oliver recovered the ball on the twenty-three. A pass from DeMuro to Cameron netted a first down, the ball on Duke's ten-yard ribbon. The Duke Blue Devils braced their backs and held the Cobbler attack to the five-yard stripe. The rest of the game was a melee of bruises and line defensive foot- ball against fresher players. October I saw the Techmen battling it out with Army on West Point's home ground. The service boys punched through a twenty-six-point lead in the first few minutes of play. The Cobblers held the Army second team scoreless during the second quarter though the half found Army on V. P. l.'s two-yard line. Army pounded across another score in the third period. DelVluro's superb kicking put the Blacksburg men in scoring position. The ball was lost on downs on the Army ten-yard stripe. The fourth period again showed an Army score. The final tally was Army, 39, V. P. I., 0. ln Richmond, October 8, the Cobblers defeated William and Mary 27 to 0. The game opened with a vicious attack which netted seven points in the first three minutes of play. The Braves held back a second Cobbler scoring opportunity when Coleman blocked a quick kick and V. P. I. recovered. William and Mary rallied in the second period and began an accurate passing attack. The Cobbler reserves were finally able to stop them on their own ten-yard line. A second advance of runs and passes netted Tech another seven points. Two more touch- downs were amassed by a combination of interception, passing, and clever running. The colorful Homecoming program was climaxed by a game with the powerful University of Virginia team. The men from Charlottesville upset a I6-year precedent by defeating V. P. I. I4 to 6. No Virginia team had ever before downed V. P. I. in Miles Stadium. Virginia amassed fourteen points during the first fifty-eight minutes. Tech, battling to the end, thrust over a touchdown with a long pass to Pierce. The try for the extra point failed. The game October 22 was with Washington and Lee on their home field. The Techmen played their finest football to date. Heavily outweighed, they blocked and tackled with authority and outgained the Cenerals both on the ground and through the air. Sophomore Jim Coleman and Senior Bill Devlin outplayed their teammates, who in turn were outplaying them- selves in the fighting Cobbler tradition. Tech opened with a power-equipped attack, driving down to the Cenerals' four-yard line. The ball was lost when a W. and L. man intercepted a pass. The Tech line stopped the Lexington advance after an exchange of punts. At the beginning of the second half the Cobblers again made a dangerous threat to the W. and I... zero yard stripe when DeMuro and Fixx slashed their way to the W. and L. eight. The ball was lost in passing into the end zone. The game was about even until deep in the third quarter, DeMuro punted into Pinck's arms.

Turning and twisting behind beautiful blocking, Pinck ran 88 yards for the only score of the game. October 24 saw a C-obbler team victorious over the powerful N. C. State gridmen in our own Miles Stadium. The fine spirit of the corps backing the hard-fighting team cut down the odds and put Tech in the lead 7 to 0 when the final whistle blew. In this game Al Miller at last got a chance to come into his own. After two and a half years of injuries, Miller was at last well enough to play. With the aid of three braces and yards of adhesive tape, he turned the tide on the confident North Carolina boys. In the first quarter the Gobblers reached the N. C. State live-yard line. Here Captain Pierce tried a field goal without success. The second quarter again showed the Gobblers consistently in the N. C. territory. With the beginning of the second half Tech marched for the lone touchdown of the game. The battling Techmen, led by lVIiller,. plowed their way across the deadline. The final whistleff found the Gobblers straining on the North Carolina si lf inch line. s 1 I ' 1 ' f l 1 ' xl tl fwti. lg! I fi R fs T' IBGINIA POLYTECHNIC INSTITUTE The next week showed the game Gobblers in a losing battle against the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Despite the wet field, the game resolved itself into a punting duel between Hudson and U. N. C.'s Stirn- weiss. The Tar Heel touchdown came through a blocked punt on Tech's twenty. The last Tech threat was stopped by a fumble on the Carolina IS. On Armistice Day, the University of Richmond bat- tled Tech to 0-0 tie. The ding-dong gridiron war was characterized by the tenseness both teams displayed. The Techmen reached the Spiders, twelve during the first half but lost the ball on an intercepted pass. The third quar- ter was mostly in mid-field section. The fourth quarter allowed the Ctobblers to advance to the University of Richmond's five-yard line. Captain Pierce tried for a field goal. This strategy barely missed, leaving the score- board unmarred. The annual V. P. I.-V. M. I. military classic ended in the strange score of 2-2. Winter descended on Roa- noke and smothered it in a blanket of snow just before the game started. Mahr field was a sea of mud before the snow added a colder torture to those already before the players. V. M. I. kicked off with Rose returning to the thirty- two. Hudson, desirous of letting V. M. I. handle the wet ball, punted on the first down to the V. M. I. 26. After an exchange of fumbles V. M. I. was in possession on their own I5. Shu's punt was blocked by Tech's sophomore tackle, Jim Coleman. The ball bounded into the end zone for an automatic two-point score. Late in the quarter Hudson fumbled the wet ball through his frozen fingers in trying to punt from his own goal line. RANK1N M.

Ctosney blocked a punt which Ernie King recovered on the V. M. I. live. A few plays later, after a penalty, the last V. P. I. threat in the form of a field goal proved futile. The second half was a nip and tuck affair with Tech punting on the first and second down while V. M. I. waited until the third or fourth to kick. V. IVI. I. recovered a fumble on the 18. The incident was repeated with V. M. I. fumbling on their first down. The game ended with the ball in mid-Held after an exchange of runs and punts. After the game, Coach "Fuss" Redd said of his team, "It is the greatest team I have ever coached. Few, if any of them, were great football players. Their ability as players did not come up to that of some other squads I have coached. But from the standpoint of courage, spirit Page 239 and determination, this is the greatest team of them all. They gave everything they had every minute. They never knew when they were beaten. I want them all to know how I feel about them. I hate to think that I will never have another chance to work with the eleven seniors on this club again. Boys like these provide the greatest thrill in a coach's life. I shall never forget how these boys played up to the hilt of their abilities with unflinching courage and determination. They are great boysf' The eleven seniors on the squad were Captain Frank Pierce, Frank Oliver, Archie Cameron, Jim Cuaugler, George Worthington, Bill Devlin, Ernie King, Neil Wood, Al Miller, and Jim Belcher. Equal credit should i . be given to Marvin Inge for his capable managership of this spirited eleven. Vdfvj N 73-X i Ll Nfl it A wi d "JIU f -r, -on ui A 'HEL 1 414 A uzqllti L. Q N .

S1MoN Manager Three days after Thanksgiving, at the end of football season, the supply room in the Virginia Tech gymnasium was a scene of bustle and clamor as last-minute preparations were being made for the '38-'39 basketball season. Managers were busy dragging practice uniforms out of moth flakes and issuing them to the anxiously waiting line, putting the proper amount of air in the balls and cleaning and shining for the untold season just beginning. As usual, the newspapers began their propaganda about Tech's team and star players along with other teams and players in the State and Southern Conference. Most of the "blow-ups" ended with the boldly stated words "light, green and inexperienced material," expressions carried over from the football season. After about three weeks of practice, the coach, turning from his favorite position in the center of the court and scratching his head, mumbled, "Hmmm, I wonder where and how I'll get a team and five substitutes." The Christmas holidays gave him time to think and formulate plans for the season opening officially F RIDAY, JANUARY I3. The William and Mary Indians visited Blacksburg for the opening game. Although the Gobblers put up a game light, the superior Indians kept a safe lead throughout the game. The follow- ing day the strong University of Richmond Spiders met the Tech five on the V. P. I. court. The game was a thriller from beginning to end, with the Cobbler live following the Spiders by one point until the last few breathless moments when Captain Sonny Powers sank a beautiful one-handed shot from the corner of the court at full speed to make the final score 32-3l. The Techmen traveled into foreign territory next to meet Duke University and the University of North Carolina. Tommy Ingram, forward, opened up on his pivot shots against Duke, sinking five out of seven. but the Duke quintet copped the game. The C-obblers began against the U. N. C. boys to chalk up their second win. Again Tommy Ingram was in the groove making I8 points, until an accident left him on the floor with a battered foot that kept him out of the game for several weeks. The loss of Ingram was apparent in the next game when the Tech five met the Washington and Lee Generals in Lexington. Keith Haff and Frank Pierce 1 THE NINETEEN THIHTY-NINE BUGLE put their last bit of energy into a good fight, but it seemed nothing could stop Dick Pynck from sinking the basket from all angles. In the following game Captain Powers led the fighting five against V. M. I. Sundberg, replacing Ingram, played a good defensive game but the squad left Lexington with the Keydets holding the honors. At Charlottesville the team again failed to click and the University Cavaliers ran up the score by a margin of twenty points. The Gobblers put all the pep and stamina they had into the play but the all-important baskets were missing. H. M. MCEVER Coach Virginia Tech put up a marvel scrap against the powerful live from Marshall Col- lege. The Clobbler guards prevented the six- foot West Virginians from getting a single rebound, offensive or defensive, or from using their famous time-controlled passing. Frank Pierce made his way to the basket to sink six shots, and Powers marked up five long ones, to brighten the Techmen's best game of the season. The Tech basketeers took a slump for three weeks on mostly return games. Although outplayed in every contest, the team never lost their scrap and determination. Mast came off the bench to start a rally in his favorite position as guard, and Fleshman started in at forward for a few good games. Captain Sonny Powers led his team with pep and vigor. I-le was the main player on the floor, and whenever he was out of the game the team was lost. He, along with Frank Pierce, Sonny Sundberg and Bill Fleshman will be lost because of graduation. Next year frosh players will step up to fill the shoes of those who do not return and the season will not open on the unlucky Friday the thir- teenth.

The team can best be characterized in the words of Coach Tom Slusser, "The best varsity squad since l've been at V. P. I." Following are the boys who wore the "Orange and Maroon" for Coach Slusser. Billy Aus- tin, IZO-pouncl batter, had a very successful season. In his first year of varsity competition Billy won four and lost one. His loss was an unpopular decision in his first fight at the conference. Wally Alexson, I27 pounds, fought the best three fights of the year, taking Freddy Jackson's place. Alexson, just a sophomore, lost two and won one but shows great promise for next year. Joe Obrochta, l35, took up this weight after Graningeris injury. This was his first year of varsity boxing, and, although his record carries only one win. he shows great promise. Jimmy Evans, the sophomore I45-pound Hghter, showed the greatest improvement of any on the team. Jimmy won three and lost two this year, and at the conference gave the champion the best fight he had but lost a close decision. Jimmy has a good chance for conference championship next year. Jimmy Woolwine, another sophomore, held down the I55-pound class. He is a hard and fast hitter, scoring one K. O. in 47 seconds. He won three and lost two. Frank Oliver again held the l65-pound class and had BCXING Captain T. C. SLUSSER Coach M. N. JACOBS Manager a good record of three wins, one draw and one loss. This was his last year of boxing. John Sowder fought three fights as the l 75-pound boxer and came through with a fair record. Sowder is one of the most clever boxers on the team and should go places next year. Dave Pitts fought three fights as 175-pounder then fought his last as a heavy weight. He scored three wins, two by K. O.'s and lost one decision. Jim Gaugler, the l939 Southern Conference champ, finished up his season with a bang. His previous record of the year wasn't very favorable since he won one and lost three, but then he came back and won the championship. This was the first champion Tech had had in boxing since 1934. The Gobblers won three meets of a five-meet schedule, winning over N. C. State, University of North Carolina, and Western Maryland. The strong University of Virginia pugsters turned back the fighting Gobblers with a 5-3 score for Tech's opening match of the season. After Tech won the opening 120-pound clash by a technical knockout administered by Billy Austin over Platon C-ailey, the only one of the eve- ning, Virginia won four straight matches. Frank Oliver, middleweight, and Jim Gaugler, heavyweight, both veterans, won by decision over Roy Bowman and Raymond Hawkins. THE NINETEEN THIRTY-NINE BUGLE The next Saturday found the Tech squad in Chapel Hill where they gave the N. C. State boys the short end of a fam to In score. In the opening bout Billy Austin won a decision over Betts of State to give the Techmen the lead of one point which was quickly nullified in the second bout when Freddie Jackson stepped into a terrific right delivered by Eddie Young of State about midway of the second round and went down for the count. Means of State took the next bout by decisioning Granninger, but the Carolinians failed to produce an opponent for Evans and forfeited the l45-pound bout to even the score at 2-2. Woolwine took the next bout for the Gobblers, and Oliver drew with Abrams in the following match to give Tech a one-point margin of safety once more. Punching hard and fast, Dave Pitts decisioned State's Smart in the l 75-pound bout to cop the meet for the Cobbler boys. The Tech varsity scored three decisions and two knockouts to pile up a 7-2 margin in the first seven bouts against the North Carolina Tarheels. Jim Gaugler dropped an unpopular decision to Eddie Hubbard in the Hnal match. The quickest kayo of the evening was scored by Tech's hard-hitting sophomore, Jimmy Wool- wine, in the I55-pound scrap. The Techman showed lightning-fast punching with both fists as he dropped Claude Sapp in less than one minute. Dave Pitts, light-heavy, landed a series of hard rights to stop Bob l-lermson in the second round. Billy Austin and Joe Obrochta outboxed their Tarheel opponents to win by decisions. A classy Catholic University team administered a terrific 7-l dubbing to the Techmen in their visit to Washington. But the strong Tech sophomore, Jimmy Evans, the only Cobbler who made the least impression on the University's sluggers, won the I35-pound class via the decision route. The next week-end found the tables turned for the Gobblers when they won a convincing 7-I victory over a game Western Maryland team. Billy Austin, Wally Alexson, Jimmy Evans and Dave Pitts floored their opponents one or more times, Referee Ed Brock- man stopping Evans' match in the first round and the others' in the second. Billy Austin, l20-pouncler. landed hard rights and lefts on Joseph Rouse until the referee stopped the match. Wally Alexson floored Don Beck in the first stanza and was battering his adversary with both hands when Brockman again stopped hostil- ities just before the bell in the second round. Jimmy Evans belted his opponent, Bob Lambert, in little more than a minute. Woolwine was too fast for Captain Bill Bender, Western lVlaryland's ace, gaining the decision after three rounds. Steady boxing by Frank Oliver and John Sowder enabled these veterans to capture the next two bouts by decision. Dave Pitts in the heavyweight berth, knocked his opponent to the canvas twice before the bout was halted. On journeying to Columbia, South Carolina, for the Southern Conference tournament, Coach Slusser took seven of his eight regulars. Out of the seven contestants from Tech, Jim Gaugler proved himself by emerging with the Southern Conference Unlimited crown.

'I' 'VIRGINIA POLYTECHNIC INSTITUTE The usual display of Tech spirit climaxed a season that was none too brightg the Gobbler team scored a lone team victory over the Apprentice School of Newport News, and lost to four confer- ence foes. With six lettermen available, the season's prospects appeared bright to Coach Earl Tilson. These men included George Cocorus in the l2l- pound class, Billy Holland in the I35-pound class, Charley Magill and Jack Ruby in the middle- weight division, and Henry Alexander wrestling the l55-pound class, with Captain Ernie King, who weighs 155 pounds and wrestled that weight here- tofore, going to the l 75-pound class. George Cocorus, sophomore I2 l -pouncler, has gamely tried this season, but in every case he has been opposed by a veteran whose experience was too much for "Coca" The IZS-pound class was filled by sophomore Lyman Brothers who unfortunately cracked his rib in the second meet. Billy Holland is a truly scientific wrestler and will probably cap- tain next year's team. Billy has suffered but one defeat, that being by V. lVl. I., the Southern Con- ference champions. In the I45-pound class, Charley Magill and jack Ruby have been fighting it out for this position all season. The two of them have broken even in the win and lose columns. Harry Alexander, an up-and-coming sophomore, got points for the Gobblers at the University of North Caro- lina and the Apprentice School at Newport News before losing his first match. The l65-pound class was held clown by DelVluro. "Phantom Phil" started off like a whirlwind, pinning his first two opponents and then losing the third one to N. C. State. Phil had to depend on his speed in lieu of experience. Captain Ernie King, a true Techman with a fighting heart, represented the I75-pound class. Ernie wrestled three times in a class twenty pounds beyond him and is still ahead of his oppo- nents on points. Heavyweight Simpson pinned the U. N. C. heavy and then dropped one to Newport News Apprentice. After these two matches he was lost to the squad because of injuries. Nicholas replaced Simpson who put up a courageous but los- ing fight against N. C. State in his first effort. The last of the season the heavyweight's shoes were filled alternately by "Goose" Gosney and Nichols.

KING Captain The Tech grapplers lost their first match by a close two-point margin to the University of North Carolina's Tarheels. Billy Holland, Henry Alex- ander, Claude Simpson, and Phil DelVluro took the honors that day for Tech. The next Saturday found the Gobblers in the win column where they defeated the Apprentice School at Newport News. Tech took five of the eight bouts, losing two by fall and one by default. Phil DeMuro took the 165-pound match by fall. Billy Holland, Jack Ruby, Henry Alexander, and Ernie King won decisions. Injured during the bout, Lyman Brothers defaulted. Wrestling on their home mat, the Techmen found themselves slowly overcome by the North Carolina State team. The N. C. State men won by a five-point margin with all matches running very close and no falls for either team that day. The final score stood WM to IZM. Sporting one of the best wrestling teams in the history of the school, V. M. I., always famous for the excellency of their grapplers, overwhelmed the Gobblers. The score was greatly unbalanced but all matches were closely contested. On February 25, the Washington and Lee wrestling team maintained their supremacy over the Virginia Tech matmen. Only two matches were taken by the Gobblers. George Jones wrestled smartly all the way in beating Rudy Hanna by decision. Charley lVlagill gave a line performance in securing a decision over Jack Broome, who was second ranking man in his weight in the conference last year. The Washington and Lee wrestlers ran up a score of Z6 points against Tech's 6. In addition to Captain Ernie King, Jones, Magill and Ruby are all seniors and will be lost upon graduation in June.

Most of the men now on the squad are those with only freshman experi- ence. However, these new men, led by Captain Frank Pierce, show that with some more out- side practice they will give the Techmen some good ball-playing as the season progresses. The BASEBALL FRANK PIERCE Captain MCEVER Coach E. C. VAUGHN Manager weatherman has given us only a few days of infield practice, thus handicapping the men greatly. The team has made very good showings against the strong batteries of the teams of Richmond, Maryland, and William and Mary. The four letter-men, Martin Cobb, Cturley Barlow, Bill Bennett, and Captain Frank THE NINETEEN THIRTY-NINE BUGLE Pierce, have shown that their varsity experience has helped them a great deal. Martin Cobb, the little man who holds down the "hot corner," has proven the spark-plug of the infield. Gun- ley Barlow began the season as an outfielder until the Maryland game when he was called to the mound. In his first start of the season as a hurler, he pitched eight innings of good baseball against Richmond. I-le shows promise of an unexpected addition to the pitching staff. Bill Bennett, the hard-hitting outfielder, has driven a number of the Tech runs across the plate to prove his ability at the bat. Captain Frank Pierce, also an outfielder, has proved to be a worthy leader for the Tech nine. The newcomers to our squad are showing what it takes to be ball-players. Bill Durvin, Mac MacLeod, Clyde Mast, and Bill Trice compose the remainder of the lielders. Bert Sampson and Ward Boswell show their stuff as men behind the plate. The pitching staff seems to be steadily im- proving. It is now composed of Gurley Bar- low, "Buck-eye" Warriner, "Lefty" Owen, Joe Beville, "Ace', Becker, Tommy Spain, and Jay Horne. Coach lVlcEver is working on the team, and, with a break from the weatherman, will de- velop it enough to win our share of the remain- ing games this season.

PV TIN it ia 7' gil' r ' a ,Sfi , ' Jii V- ' ' A S 'I' 'VIRGINIA POLYTECHNIC INSTITUTE Opening the season with only seven letter- men, and woefully weak in several events, the outlook did not look bright for Tech's cinder- men, but under the careful tutelage of Dr. C. Harrar, the Gobblers took rapid strides in the right direction. Dr. I-larrar watched the track team this year, while Coach Tex Tilson devot- ed his time to spring football practice. Co-captains "Jud" Ellis and "Mo" Brad- shaw ably led the wearers of maroon and gold this season. Ellis specializes in the pole vault and high jump, while Bradshaw runs the 220- yard dash, the quarter mile, and the hurdles. Letterman "Poopy" Draine handles the two- mile mn for V. P. I., and has proven to Tech supporters on m-any occasions that he can be counted on to bring in his share of points. "Chicken" Dennis and "Huey" Long, two well-known senior Ciobblers, have done justice to the mile run this year, invariably turning in good performances. Veterans Al Miller and Archie Cameron have been greatly aided in the weights this sea- son by "Vic" lVlonta, brawny sophomore udark horse," who has turned in a highly creditable performance with the discus, javelin, and shot put. This trio of weight men have done much to boost Tech's score in every meet. Cobbler spirits were dampened temporarily during mid-season when Co-Captain "Jud" First raw: Long, Draine, Dennis, Bradshaw, Ellis, Etheridge, Bise Second rom: Bogesse, Lowe, Scheuer, Rubin, Shipe, Moore, Davis, lVlcCahill Third row: Harrison, lVlonta, Downey, Baldwin, Smith, Brewer, Montague Page 248 TI-IE NINETEEN TI-IIRTY-NINE BUGLE DR. j. C. HARRAR Acting Coach Ellis received a leg injury which took him out of active competition for several weeks, but Tech hopes again rose when Phil DelVluro, V. P. l.'s Jack-of-all-trades, stepped into the wide breach left by Ellis and ably handled the pole vault until Ellis returned to the line-up. The cindermen opened the season against Emory and Henry, but the meet was rained out after the completion of only three events. Tech was leading at the time by the score of I4-I3, because of the brilliant performance of Dennis and Bradshaw. A. j. ELLIS, Co-Captain The harriers next encountered the team from the University of Maryland. Although de- feated Sl-4l, the wearers of the maroon and gold gave the "Terp power-house" stiff com- petition. Co-captain Ellis vaulted well to win the event at I2 feet, while Monta coppecl the discus throw at I I9 feet, 2 inches. Misfortune took certain victory from the Techmen the following Saturday, when Ellis was injured and the Davidson Wildcats placed heavily in the high jump and pole vault, win- ning the meet 70-55. Co-Captain Bradshaw was the high-point man however, with second honors going to lVlonta. The remaining schedule for the cindermen includes V. M. I., Washington and Lee, N. C. State, the state meet at Richmond, and the Southern Conference meet at Durham. Al- though not outstanding, the 1939 Tech track team improved rapidly, won its share of events in most of the meets, and bore itself graciously in victory and defeat. If for no other reason than this, the 1939 season may be termed a success, and our cindermen may hang up their spikes with a feeling of a job well done. M. 0.

The members of the team attended daily practice and followed to the letter the instructions of the coach. The results of this new system were highly satisfactory, for much more was accom- plished with the available material than in the years past. Coach Scherer was able to devote more of his time to the team, and the little success the swimming team had is due to the untiring efforts of "Doc," one of the ablest coaches in the state. In ten meets the Techmen were victorious only three times. However, the team always gave their best efforts. The few men who had outstanding ability were consistent winnersg Billy Cowart was undefeated in fancy diving, and Jimmy Hammock was beaten only once in the 440. The members of the l939 swimming team are to be com- mended for their fine spirit and undying efforts in the face of overwhelming odds. Their cooperative spirit has made the new policy possible and will have a part in the successes which future Tech swimming teams will enjoy. DR. P. C. SCHERER Coach W. H. SHAW, JR.

THE NINETEEN THIRTY-NINE BUGLE TENNIS Tennis activities during the past season have been hampered in that the new tennis courts which were to have been constructed for the current season will not be available until next year. However, despite this handicap, Tech's netmen have practiced on the few available courts, and have engaged in a number of encounters that were not regularly scheduled. Such a spirit as that exhibited by this year's net- men indicates that great things should come from the Cobbler camp in this field of athletics next year. The veterans who will form the nucleus for next year's team are Sid Linas, "Sonny" Ellison, Waits, Archer, Hancock, and Tommy Green. It is predicted that next year will find Tech with one of the finest teams that it has had in years. It is felt that good courts upon which to practice will aid our representatives in this sport -in developing and improving their brand of tennis immensely. It is also felt that the material coming up from the present Freshman class should prove a strong asset to the veterans who will return to form the foundation of our team.

Intramural athletics have for their INTRAMURAL SPORTS "Athletics for all," is not merely a slogan at Virginia Polytechnic Institute. It is an actuality, because more than l,200 different students took part in the intramural program conducted last year. The Department of Physical Education at V. P. I. supports this program to assist the student in discovering some interest in exercise which will help him keep fit in years to come. Intramural sports come close to the ideal in athletics of "Sports for Sport's sake." Its program is designed to stimulate the interest of students in all types of sports. Its aim is "sports for all and all for sports." It is safe to say that wise participation in mass athletics has beneficial effect on scholarship as well as on physical development of the individ- Objectives recreation. group spirit, social benefits, better health, clevel- opment of interest in sports, development of varsity material, bodily prowess, sportsmanship, and scholarship.

YOUNOER Sigma Delta Psi, national honorary athletic fraternity, was organized in 1912 at Indiana University. The purpose of the fraternity is to encourage health and symmetrical bodily development. To be eligible for membership in this fraternity a student must have passed a series of all-round tests of physical ability and must have a satisfactory academic record. The tests are designed to require thorough and systematic train- ing on the part of the individual who seeks membership. Virginia Tech's chapter was organized during the spring of I937 through the efforts of Professors M. B. Blair and G. Harrar of the Vanderbilt and Oberlin chapters, respectively. For the past two years the Tech chapter has finished third in the national meet. Fencing Team W. R. A.

C o a c I1 In the third year of intercollegiate competition, Virginia Tech's fencing team has met some of the strongest fencing teams in the South. The season opened with a close match with the University of North Carolina, with the final score 9M to 7M in favor of Carolina. The next match on the schedule was with the Southern Conference Cham- pions, William and Mary, at Williamsburg. The epee men, Co-Captain Kleysteuber and Dmitri Gagarine, were particularly strong in taking all the bouts in that weapon. The crack Charleston team from West Virginia won UM to fih, but the experience was invaluable to the improving Tech team. The University of South Carolina was overwhelmed I I to 2 as the Gagarine brothers and Kleysteuber swept all of their eight bouts. Page 253 Ti I' fy p 1' V, J A .. " 1 I . , Quail s. 6 I ' W X- "T .

Each year since that time the Corps has increased in size. This year the enrollment has reached an all time high of over l,500 Cadets. The influence of the Corps in student affairs is predominant. Social life centers around the Corps, scholastic standards are set by it, and athletic teams are chosen from its ranks. Student government is equitably divided between the Corps and the remaining student body. This year the Corps, functioning as a unit has supported with the best of spirits all new measures intro- duced by the Commandant. Many fruitful suggestions have arisen out of the ranks of the Corpsg many of these, by agreement between the Corps and the proper authorities, have been put into use. Such whole-hearted support by its individual members of all plans, principles, and policies can best show what an effective influence the Corps has in moulding and building men of character. Its members leave, but the Corps continues as the Standard for the undergraduates at Virginia Polytechnic Institute. J. R. BELCHER President Mas. J. R.

It is a tribute to the work of Paul Derring and the "Y" Cabinet that visiting speakers declare that Christian work on this campus is better organized than on many other college campuses.

Y. WoRTH1NcToN E. E. WOOD The German Club of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute was founded in l892, and it is the oldest organization of its kind on the campus. Today it still possesses the fine qualities and heritage of the past years. The Club's original purpose was to provide worthwhile social life for the entire student body, and it has adhered to the high aims set forth at its founding. Although the German Club, necessarily, has a modern viewpoint, the purpose today remains essentially the same, and it is considered a very conservative organization. Its members are of the highest personal integrity and outstanding abilityg membership is limited but nevertheless cosmopolitan. Page 272 I THE NINETEEN THIRTY-NINE BUGLE Page 273 , 1 ' 2 D. W.

I. student body by sponsoring formal dances on the campus at certain intervals throughout the college year. The picturesque World War Memorial Hall. in which the club dances are held, furnishes an excel- lent Hoor and other facilities for the enjoyment and convenience of its guests. Even though the dances are formal, there is an air of Congeniality and informality on the dance floor which is seldom found on any other campus, and, for this reason, the Cotillion dances at V. P. I. have become famous. The club extends a cordial invitation to the past, present, and future students of V. P. I. to be its guests at its formal sets.

Dressed in its new front page make-up The Virginia Tech found favor among the many readers, and Volume XXXVI may go down in the history of V. P. I. as one of the most outstanding on record. The Virginia Intercollegiate Press Association awarded our paper hrs! prize in its class at the annual convention last fall. Hunton L. Downs carried on the Downs' tradition in journalism by producing an even more modern paper than either of the two brothers who preceded him as editor of The Virginia Tech. Johnny Kirk, managing editor, built his column. "Talk of the Campus," into one of the most beneficial semi-editorial critical services on the campus, johnny Peck added the livelier touch to the editorial page with his gossipy "Half-Steps," while Ed Wilson tilted in the blank spaces with his so- called jokes. Cooperating with utmost efficiency, the Junior ed- itors, Sid Linus, Jules Duparc, Bob Sjogren, Fred Wil- son, and Winston Redford produced a paper we believe heretofore unexcelled in appearance by any other college paper. Fifteen selected freshmen and about half as many r Sophomores have aided and abetted the other members 'mg of the editorial staff in producing a newspaper of which we may all be proud. I-I. L.

Therefore, it is necessary that the group be an eflicient and aggressive body. Although the statf does not make the headlines, there would be no headlines without it. The business staff gives a group of students much valuable training in the held of business management. This year through the efforts of the business manager and his staff of underclassmen, The Virginia Tech has increased its advertising value and its total number of subscriptions.

The club has fostered interest in the field of agriculture und has given its members broader and more comprehensive training intellectually. moi-nlly. and socially which cannot be procured from classroom study. At our meetings, held three 'Fhursduy nights each month. members have given brief talks on subjects related to agricul- ture: also from time to time. outside speakers have discussed current problems which are also related to agriculture. Invalunhle training in speaking, lending discussions, and general instruction regarding our curriculum have been the accom- plishments of our meetings. E. G. Aunts R. R. K. ALLISON XV J. W.

I. dramatic club reorganized, and adopted a name which includes one of the school colors, "The Maroon Mask." The rejuvenated organization has since given six highly successful full-length plays, including "The Bishop Misbehavesf' "Jonesy.', and "Seven Keys to Baldpatef' all of which had previous long runs on Broadway. "The Maroon Mask" is composed of V. P. I. students who have taken part actively either in cast, stage crew, or committee work of the various productions. The increasing number of people who attended each succeeding play and the rising enthusiasm which greeted each final curtain are ample proofs that clramatics has been accepted by the students as a valuable campus activity.

HALSEY CAPTAIN I-I. C. AHALT SERGEANT M. W. BIRDWELL The purpose of the Rifle Club is to promote rifle shooting at V. P. I., and to sponsor a rifle team that has repeatedly brought national recognition to this institution. The Rifle Club boasts a membership of two hundred and twenty students, making it the largest organization on the campus other than the Athletic Association. The finances of the club are used to equip the rille range, which is now the finest in the state. and to promote both varsity and freshman rifle teams. The Rifle Club has repeatedly proven itself a worthwhile organization. It has produced fine teams, and at the same time it has afforded valuable marlcsmanship experience to the students, especially to those in the Corps of Cadets. E. G.

Rifle Team By winning three-fourths of its matches against the best of competition, the Rifle Team has established a very enviable record during the last few years. Much credit is due the coaching staff for giving their invaluable assistance to the team. Last year the Varsity team climaxed a very successful season by taking second place in the Third Corps Area ROTC match, and reached a still greater peak when the team representing the Engineer Battalion of V. P. I. placed second to -the State College of Washington in the national match between all engineer ROTC units. Several fine trophies have recently been presented the Rifle Team, and at the end of the season the best shot in the various matches has his name inscribed on the appropriate trophy. J. E.

Being well rehearsed, well trained, and well talented, the members of the Southern Colonels were able to interpret the current swing arrangements played by Dorsey, Goodman, and others. During the school session the Southern Colonels played in and out of state dances, and during the Christmas holidays they made an extensive tour of the lead- ing Virginia cities. 0 BRASS SECTION SAXAPI-IONE SECTION RYTI-IM SECTION J.
