Volume XIII 




Science 

Building 




The embodiment of our student body is the CATAMOUNT. Within the covers 
of our yearbook are scenes and descriptive accounts of classroom sessions and extra- 
curricular activities. Posed and candid snapshots will serve to recall memories of happy 
hours. Recorded herein are seasonal sports beginning with the championship football 
team and including basketball, baseball, and tennis. We have depicted the many activities 
of sororities, fraternities, and the numerous college-approved clubs and organizations. 
Featured in the 1951 annual are approximately two hundred fifty pictures of freshmen 
and sophomores. We point with pride to the section devoted to Campus Charm, wherein 
are found the girls who on special occasions have been honored for beauty, charm, and 
talent. 

The CATAMOUNT opens with the section honoring the faculty whose untiring 
elforts will long be remembered; we close this volume with the pages familiarly known 
as advertisements, but without which this yearbook would be impossible. 

Volunteer staff members have given freely and unstintingly of their time and 
talents. Their reward is the satisfaction that their fellow-classmates find in this record 
of college days. 

May the memories enshrined here remain treasured forever in the hearts of Potomac 
State's sons and daughters. 

' MARTHA WATSON, Editor 



We Honor 




\ Raymond L. Dennison 



Growth and development of Potomac State School of West Virginia 
University are achieved by vision, efficient planning, and tenacity of 
purpose. 

As manager of the School Farm since 1951, Mr. Dennison has 
achieved a noteworthy record: acres have been added, buildings have been 
erected, and the farm Ayrshire herd has achieved national recognition. 
The faculty of the Agriculture Department, headed by Mr. Dennison, 
has grown to keep pace with student enrollment. In both the theory 
of the classroom and practical farm demonstration, Mr. Dennison has 
always striven to inculcate efficiency of workmanship, integrity of 
character, and high ethical standards. 

The Staff takes pleasure in dedicating the 1951 CATAMOUNT 
to Mr. Raymond L. Dennison. 



Dr. Ernest E. Church 




President's Message 

The fact of change is one of the most changeless laws of life. This 
applies to institutions as well as individuals. From the easy going days 
of two decades ago, the disillusioning years of the depression, the hitter 
and trying years of World War II, we have come to the years of constant 
preparedness, and perhaps undeclared war. Each of these periods has 
brought its problems to the campus. Just when we were supposing that 
"college as usual" conditions were returning, we find new conditions and 
new problems induced by the national emergency. The only sameness 
remaining is the resolution of students and faculty, on every college 
campus, to put their country's interest and welfare first. 

The change demanded by the current situation has already been 
reflected in total enrollment and in the type of enrollment. It has also been 
expressed in a spirit of uneasiness and unrest. It is well to be reminded 
that we serve best when we avoid panic and continue to do well the job 
at hand. 

In the midst of these pressing and disturbing problems, we salute 
those organizations that maintain their excellent service to the college. 
High on the list of these service organizations is THE CATAMOUNT. 
We salute the sponsor and the staff for perseverance toward their goal of 
giving us through the pages of THE CATAMOUNT a faithful portrayal 
of a good year on our campus. 

ERNEST E. CHURCH, President 



Dean's Message 



•<£ 



v 's 



It is agreed by those who are planning for the military 
and civilian defense of our nation, that in order to survive 
the present and future emergencies, we must continue our 
developments in the fields of the Physical, the Biological, 
and the Social Sciences. 

The first and second of these developments will be 
provided for in the classrooms and laboratories on our 
college campuses. 

The defense of our democratic ideas and ideals depends 
on teachings in the field of the Social Studies. Classroom 
discussions must be followed by campus and community 
practices which will make us mentally alert, physically 
strong, and spiritually sound. 

This thirteenth traditional CATAMOUNT has artisti- 
cally and interestingly recorded for us the social activities, 
the organizations, and the personalities that have made 
this college and you a significant part of our nation's plan. 

For this excellent yearbook, we are indeed grateful to 
the able and loyal staff and sponsors.

Eta Upsilon Gamma Sorority was founded at Christian College, 
Columbia, Missouri, in 1901. It is the oldest national junior college 
sorority in the national College Pan Hellenic. The aims of the sorority are 
to promote scholarship, to stimulate school spirit, and to enrich and 
broaden friendship. 

After a Progressive Dinner and an Informal Party held during "Rush 
Week," fourteen girls became Gamma pladges. In October, a formal 
pledge initiation ceremony was held for these girls. 

At Christmas, the Gammas and Thetas with their invited guests went 
to the home of Dr. and Mrs. Thomas Bess for an evening of dancing 
and entertainment. 

The wearer of the Gamma Lamp pin for the year 1 950-1 951 is 
Virginia Kemp, who had the highest scholastic average among the 
Pledges the previous year. 

Patricia Auman was elected Sophomore Belle this year. Edith Awman 
was elected to reign as Miss Catamount XII at the Homecoming festivities. 

This year the Gammas have a new sponsor. She is Miss Katherine 
Broderick from Morgantown, West Virginia. She is on the faculty at 
Potomac State School as Head of the Home Economics Departments.

Theta Sigma Chi Fraternity was first started as a social club; later it 
became a prominent organization on the Potomac State Campus. Its 
members have played an important role in all activities of the school. 

The fraternity's social season was once again successful. Theta Sigma 
Chi sponsored the annual "Miss Catamount" contest and crowned their 
candidate. Miss Edith Awman. The Thetas also sponsored Miss Patricia 
Auman who was crowned "Sophomore Belle." The annual Harvest Swing 
was held November n, featuring the popular Jimmy Andrews and his 
band. The fraternity also sponsored a "Mountaineer Week" dance held 
in the student center. The traditional Spring Formal was an outstanding 
event of the second semester. 

Year after year, the Theta Sigma Chi Fraternity produces leaders on 
the campus, men who uphold, through life, the order's high ideals: honor, 
truth, and fellowship. 

Theta Sigma Chi is proud to have as its sponsor, Mr. Ervin L. Dayton.

Epsilon Chapter of Sigma Iota Chi is the oldest sorority on the campus 
of Potomac State. When originally founded in 1903 at the University of 
the South at Sewanee, Tennessee, it was an honor society, but it has since 
become a social organization. This sorority has become the largest national 
junior college sorority in the United States. It stresses the importance of 
scholastic achievement and fellowship, thus carrying on the spirit and ideals 
of the first chapter. 

In October, twenty-one girls became Sigma pledges, after attending the 
traditional rush party. 

Miss Barbara Colabrese was chosen Queen of Winter and Mr. Joseph 
Burke reigned as King of Winter at the Jingle Bell Hop. A Christmas 
party for the actives and pledges was given by Mrs. Barbara Kuhns, 
sponsor. Miss Addie McLaughlin was elected Freshman Belle. The Sigmas 
gave the annual Sweetheart Ball in February; Miss Martha Watson was 
chosen "Sweetheart of Sigma Chi."

Phi Sigma Nu 



Mr. James T. Handlan, Jr. 

Sponsor 



Phi Sigma Nu Fraternity, founded in 1922, and first known as Kappa 
Kappa Fraternity, has been one of the most outstanding social organizations 
of Potomac State School. 

The fraternity sponsored a number of successful activities during the 
year. Among these were the Pledge Party, held in the Play Shop; a Saturday 
night dance at the Student Center; the selling of school pennants; and the 
keeping of football scores. 

Miss Barbara Colabrese and Mr. Joseph Burke were crowned Queen and 
King of Winter at the twelfth annual Jingle Bell Hop, December 16. This 
dance was held in the auditorium and was by invitation only, with Kenneth 
DePolo's Mid-Knighters providing the music. 

A leader in campus activities, the fraternity is proud that its members 
hold many important offices on the campus. 

Phi Sigma Nu demands of its members scholastic achievement, college 
spirit, high moral standards, and interest in all college students. The lasting 
bonds of friendship established here will be treasured memories in years to come.

Phi Kappa Omega 




Mr. Allen Murphy 
Sponsor 



The Phi Kappa Omega Fraternity was founded March 21, 1949, on 
the campus of Potomac State School. It was known as the E. I. T. Fra- 
ternity until January 17, 1950, when the Greek name was adopted. 

The Fraternity started the school year with a successful Pledge Party 
and followed by sponsoring an enjoyable Halloween Party at the Student 
Center. 

Phi Kappa Omega presented their first annual Easter Ball on March 
17, 1951. 

Last May the fraternity enjoyed a spring picnic at Pleasant Valley, 
Maryland and hope to maintain the activity as an annual function of the 
fraternity. 

Phi Kappa Omega is proud of the leadership and varied activities 
exemplified by its members. The organization demands of its members 
good scholarship, high moral character, and college spirit in working for 
the Fraternity and Potomac State School.

The governing organization of the student body of Potomac State School is the 
Student Council, whose major objectives are directing student activities and promot- 
ing school spirit. 

During Freshman Week the Council assisted in the orientation program for the 
incoming students; two weeks later the group helped to organize the freshman class, 
selected fieshman rules, and supervised their enforcement through the Kangaroo 
Court. The Council held "thuses" and sold programs for the football games. 

In October the Student Council sponsored one of the most gala affairs on the 
campus, the annual Homecoming Ball, honoring Miss Edith Auman as Miss Catamount; 
in May the Council cooperated with the physical education department in the May Day 
festivities, which culminated in the May Queen's Ball. 

Upon recommendation of the athletic department, the Council presented letters. 
sweaterj, and special awards to athletes. Band members were awarded their letters 
upon the recommendation of their director.

Sigma Phi Omega 

Sigma Phi Omega, the honor society of Potomac State School, has been established 
on the campus since 1923. Since both scholarship and campus leadership are qualifications 
for membership, election to this organization is a coveted honor. 

This year the fraternity resumed its activities with ten members, this number aug- 
mented later by the addition of Joan Connelly and Robert Johnson, who were admitted 
to membership at the November meeting. 

The traditional activities of Sigma Phi Omega followed their usual course through- 
out the year, beginning with the presentation of the eleventh annual Know Your Organi- 
zations program at the first convocation after the opening of the fall semester. The group 
again assisted ably in the dining room at the faculty reception to the student body. Prior 
to the close of the first semester an informal party was held in honor of three members, 
Donald Harris, Henry Oboryshko, and Betty Shook, who were completing their work 
at Potomac State School. 

The second semester is always a busy time for Sigma Phi Omega, for it is then that 
new members are selected and initiated, formally presented to the school at the Recogni- 
tion Day convocation sponsored by the fraternity, and finally honored at a formal 
banquet. This function held in the college dining room is one of the most brilliant events 
of the school year. 

In addition to these traditional activities, Sigma Phi Omega holds itself in readiness 
to serve Potomac State School at any time and under any circumstances.

Potomac State Debaters 

The Potomac State Debaters were organized in 1947 under the guidance of Mr. 
Kenna J. Burke. The Debaters received their question soon after the beginning of the 
fall semester of this year. The topic for the intercollegiate debate was: Resolved, that the 
non-communist nations form a new international organization. 

The question was discussed and the respective teams emerged. William H. Loy, 
Carl F. Davis, Jr., represented the affirmative, while William Parrill, James Hays, Louis 
Everstine, and John Oboryshko upheld the negative. 

Several debates were scheduled for the year. The intercollegiate Debate Tournament 
was held in Morgantown, at West Virginia University, this spring.

The Newman Club 

The Newman Club is a national Catholic organization which was brought to 
Potomac State campus in the spring of 1948. Its purpose is to foster the spiritual, 
intellectual, and social interests of Catholic students. This is done in order to weld 
them into a common union and to assist their school and its students whenever 
possible. 

The group is a member of the National Newman Club Federation, and of the 
Province Federation of West Virginia. The assistant pastor of the Church of the 
Assumption, which is located on James Street in Keyser, is the chaplain of the club. 
Two instructors of Potomac State School serve the organization in an advisory 
capacity. 

At one of the two monthly meetings, a visiting speaker talks to the members 
about some social, political, or religious subject. Non-members are permitted to 
attend these meetings, which have for their purpose the constant addition to one's 
intellectual ability.

The Engineers' Club has been active since its organiza- 
tion in 1 93 1. The main purpose of the group is to acquaint 
the students with the different fields of engineering. Promi- 
nent engineers from nearby industries gave instructive lec- 
tures to the club members, once each month. Field trips to 
nearby industries were taken each semester of the school 
year. One all-student program was arranged, the speakers 
being students who had witnessed special demonstrations 
in some field of engineering. Informal chats with visiting 
engineers usually concluded the monthly meetings.

Potomac State Singers 

Under the direction of Mr. Leonard G. Withers, the Potomac State Singers 
completed another successful year. 

Early in the fall the organization made its first appearance at a Sunday evening 
service at the Keyser United Brethren Church. 

In addition to the Annual Rotary Club and the college presentation, the Singers 
joined with the community choir in a Christmas concert at the Keyser High School 
Auditorium. 

Between the Christmas presentation and the annual spring tours, the Singers 
made local appearances before Churches and the Women's Club. The tours consisted 
of concerts to the major high schools in the Parkersburg, Clarksburg, and Martins- 
burg areas of West Virginia. Appearances were also made at the Cumberland high 
schools, Keyser High School, Potomac State School, and for the Keyser public. 

Closing the year's activities the Singers made their final appearance at the Bac- 
calaureate Sermon and Commencement exercises.

John O. Maiden Judson Hodges 




One of the greatest football teams in Potomac 
State's history ended the 1950 season with eight wins 
and one loss. Under the able leadership of Coach 
Lough and his competent assistants, Hodges and 
Maiden, a powerful line and a fast, hard-running 
baekfield was developed to secure new honors for 
the Alma Mater. An all-time record was established 
by scoring 273 points to Gl for the opposition. The 
Catamounts also shared a three-way West Virginia 
Intercollegiate Football Championship with Morris 
Harvey and West Liberty by maintaining a 1.000 
average in Conference play. 

Potomac State 14, Glenville 7 
The Catamounts battered their way to victory in 
the last minute of play in the curtain raiser on Stay- 
man Field September 1G. The Pioneers scored first 
midway in the second period, but the Loughmen 
countered immediately when Lauer ended a 64 yard 
drive by scoring from the 3, tying the score 7-7 at 
half-time. Late in the fourth quarter, an opponent's 
fumble was recovered on Glenville's 26. After Lauer 
and Matkowsky carried the ball to the 2. Oboryshko 
smashed off-tackle for the winning touchdown. Lauer 
ran both of the extra points. 

Potomac State .'5:5, Baltimore City Junior College 
The Cats romped to a decisive victory over BCJC 
September 23 on the home field. Lauer. Oboryshko, 
Walt Miller, and Burda spearheaded the victory by 
gaining 180 yards among them. Burda scored in the 
first quarter; Lauer tallied twice in the second period 
to make the score 19-0 at the half. Burda crossed the 
goal stripe in the third quarter from the 12 after 
Demarest recovered an opponent's fumble there. 
Lauer raced across again from the City's 20 in the 
final canto. Lauer booted two of the extra points; 
Johnson converted once. 

Potomac State 14, Shepherd 7 
The Hilltoppers avenged the 1949 defeat by out- 
playing the powerful Shepherd Rams before a large 
Homecoming Day crowd at Stayman Field Septem- 
ber 30. The first blood was drawn when De Luca 
snatched a blocked punt on the Rams' 32 and dashed 
to pay-dirt. Johnson converted, giving State a 7-0 lead 
at halftime. The Rams tallied in the third quarter to 
knot the score. The Cats showed real speed and 
stamina in the last five minutes of play by driving 
from midfield to the goal line. Lauer then smashed 
across on the fourth down for the winning score. 
Potomac State 44, Newport News Tech 25 
In the first road game of the season, the Lough- 
men proved their ability to fight on foreign soil by 
drubbing Newport News Tech on the night of Octo- 
ber 6. The battle was a see-saw one for the first three 
periods. Burda scored twice, once after a thrilling 
74 yard run, and Lauer slipped into pay-dirt once. 
Each time, however, the Techs counter-attacked, and 
State was on the short end of a 25-19 count at the 
close of the third quarter. Evidently the Cats became 
accustomed to the terrain and the bright lights, for 
they stormed back in the final period and marched 
through the opposing team as Grant took Richmond. 
A Newport back almost intercepted a Lauer pass, but 
Caldwell knocked the ball away and Perkins made a 
sensational driving catch for a score. Lauer climaxed 
a 65 yard drive by scoring from 18 yards out. A 30 
yard Lauer to Caldwel] pass added another tally. 
Allman made the final score by an eleven yard dash. 
Of the two extra points, Johnson booted one; Lauer 
ran the other. 

Potomac State 5:5, Montgomery 
The Blue and Gold eleven administered a crush- 
ing defeat to the previously unbeaten Montgomery 
squad from Bethesda, Maryland. The score was 27-0 
first quarter and 47-0 at the half. With victory cer- 



tain, Coach Lough used the opportunity to give all 
his reserves a taste of action instead of trying to 
establish a new scoring record. Jim Miller, Burda, 
Sweeney, and Lehew tallied once; Allman and Mat- 
kowsky scored twice. Johnson booted the five extra 
points. 

Potomac Stote 30, Concord 
With vengeful hearts the Cats journeyed to 
Athens, West Virginia, October 21. They were out 
to put a damper on the Homecoming festivities of 
Concord, just as the Lions had on Potomac State's 
celebration in '49 by a 14-9 victory. The Loughmen 
took an 18-0 lead in the first quarter and were never 
in danger. Lauer, Caldwell, and Walt Miller scored 
in the first period, and Burda and Caldwell tallied 
in the second and third respectively. State failed to 
make any points-after-touchdowns. 

Potomac State 19, George Washington JV 22 
The dream of an undefeated season was -de- 
stroyed on Stayman field October 27 in the last three 
minutes of play. Late in the first quarter, a blocked 
punt bounced into end zone where a GW man fell on 
the pigskin for the initial score. Then the Wash- 
ingtonians received a State fumble on the Cata- 
mount's 42 and drove across to make the score 14-0. 
In the second period, a Johnson to Caldwell and a 
Burda to Caldwell pass were both carried across the 
goal line. Johnson made only one of the extra points 
and State trailed 14-13 at the half. In the third quar- 
ter, Burda found an opening and dashed 89 yards to 
put the Cats ahead 19-14. Lauer was then caught 
behind his own goal to make the score 19-1 G. With 
third down and four yards to go for a score, a Lauer 
pass was intercepted and carried the entire length 
of the field. 

Potomac State 46, Salem 
The Hilltoppers snapped back from their first 
defeat to smash the Salem College eleven November 
4. The game was played on a cold, rainy night in a 
sea of mud at Bridgeport. Matkowsky contributed 
two touchdowns; Jim Miller, Burda, Lauer, Scott, and 
Horney added one apiece. Scott, Caldwell, Allman, 
and Graurich tacked on the extra points. 
Potomac State 20, Gallaudet 
Coach Lough's proteges ended the season by 
lacing the stubborn Gallaudet squad from Washing- 
ton, D. C. The opposing teams battled to a standstill 
until the latter part of the first half when Allman 
climaxed an 82 yard drive by plunging across from 
the one. Johnson added the extra point from place- 
ment, and State led 7-0 at halftime. In the final per- 
iod, Allman dashed nine yards around right end for 
another six-pointer; Johnson again tacked on the 
extra point. Then Kapushy intercepted a Gallaudet 
pass to put State in scoring position. Graurich cov- 
ered the remaining 7 yards for the final score of the 
day, and the season.

Potomac State opened the 1950-51 season with three returning lettermen and two 
freshmen. 

The Catamounts, under the direction of Coach Dana G. (Horse) Lough, played the 
first game at Keyser against Altoona Center, and won 87-56. The next four contests were 
on the home court. Frostburg State Teachers College was their first opponent. The 
Potomac hoopsters hit the century mark in the encounter with Frostburg, 100-48. West 
Virginia Tech visited Keyser, and sent the Potomac State basketeers to their first defeat 
82-60. The last two home games before the Christmas holidays resulted in two victories 
for the Catamounts. Salem was sent to a stinging defeat 80-63 and Shepherd was 
defeated 65-61. 

The Loughmen took their first road trip to the southern part of the state. Concord 
defeated Potomac State 79-69. The Catamounts split even in the last two games losing to 
Bluefield 74-73 and whipping Beckley 80-74. 

State traveled to Frostburg, Jan. 5, and returned with their first win of the new year, 
beating Frostburg State Teachers College 69-31. The Catamounts then met the West 
Virginia Freshmen in Clarksburg, and went down to defeat, 110-88. Three nights later, 
Potomac State met Shepherd College in a return engagement at Shepherdstown. The 
Rams avenged the earlier defeat by taking a six point verdict from the "Cats," 73-67. 
Altoona Center was host to Potomac State Jan. 13, and lost to the Catamounts 66-42. 

At the end of the first semester Potomac State lost two valuable first string men who 
had helped make the victories in the first half of the schedule possible. 

In their first encounter on the home court in 1951 Potomac State met Beckley College. 
The Loughmen defeated Beckley 87-72. Westinghouse, in a visit to the College Gym- 
nasium, won 69-65. 

Potomac State went on a two-day road trip to Steubenville, Ohio, and West Liberty. 
Steubenville defeated the "Cats" 63-59, and West Liberty struck hard in a 94-69 victory 
over State. 

Back on the friendly boards in Keyser the Catamounts defeated Alderson Broaddus 
College 71-65. Potomac State then went to Dayton, Va., and came home with an 84-82 
victory, defeating Shenandoah College in a game whose outcome was in doubt until the 
final whistle. Salem stopped the Potomac State winning streak at two when they defeated 
the Loughmen 86-72 in Keyser. 

The Catamounts hit the road the third time for a two-day trip to Fairmont and Buck- 
hannon. Again the "Cats" ran into trouble. They were defeated 63-57 by Fairmont State 
and lost to West Virginia Wesleyan 69-59. 

Davis and Elkins visited Keyser and won 84-69. Potomac State was host to West 
Liberty Feb. 17, and lost by four points, 6561. 

The Catamounts took their last road trip of the season to Montgomery, W. Va., and 
Charleston. The Loughmen were whipped, 104-69, by West Virginia Tech, and Morris 
Harvey rolled over Potomac, 93-81. 

Potomac State played their last game against Shenandoah College. The men from 
Dayton were out for revenge, defeating the Loughmen, 63-58. 
Post Season Play 

Potomac State drew a bye in the first round of the West Virginia Intercollegiate 
Tournament held in Buckhannon, March 5-8. In the second round, the Catamounts met 
West Virginia Wesleyan, who romped to a 81-59 victory to knock State out of the running. 

The Loughmen finished the season with a 11-16 won-lost record. 

Potomac State received a bid to play in the annual National Junior College Basketball 
Tournament in Hutchinston, Kansas, March 23-28. The school was to represent Region 13 
in the meet, but declined the bid.
