Time Is Relevant Potomac State College 

of 

West Virginia University 

Keyser, West Virginia 

1973-1974 



To all those who helped in the production of the 1974 "Time Is Rele- 
vant" Catamount. 

To Mr. Yancy Overby, Delmar representative, who made many a trip 
from Virginia to explain some facet of printing. To Mr. Dennis Carpenter 
who helped insure that the yearbook had top quality pictures. To Miss 
Irene Brown and Mr. Elwood Layman who lent the use of their typing 
rooms. To Dr. Elizabeth Atwater who gave some much needed moral 
support. And a Special thank you to Mr. William Gallier, the Catamount 
sponsor, who helped do anything that had to be done — from the typing 
of masters to the mailing of pages.

Time phases out of the mind many names and faces and experiences. Only a yearbook 
remembers. 

The lengthening shadows on the face of a dial, the darkening streaks down the sides of 
a building, the ticking of a clock, the sound of the hour bells, the running of sand in the 
hour-glass and the age lines on the faces of those we see are all outward signs of the 
passing of the hours. Time is not only the measure of life but its medium. "An hour 
wasted is existence; used is life." 

On these pages are the Relevant Times we will savor in the afterglow of tomorrow 
when faces and events long since have ebbed into the shadows of memory. For us at 
Potomac State College to be used not wasted for our Relevant Time is now.

MESSAGE FOR CATAMOUNT — 1973-1974 

The past year I have been proud to be a part of Potomac 
State College and the traditions which surround it. I am 
encouraged that students, faculty, and staff have worked 
together as a team, and the results of this effort are re- 
warding. 

We are in an age of accountability, as well as an age of 
inflation, but I am confident that if we continue to work 
together as a unit, we can build an even better Potomac 
State College, and in turn be better prepared for the 
challenging future in the years ahead. 

Congratulations to the Catamount staff for an excellent 
publication. 

A. G. Slonaker 
Dean of the College 



Prof. James T. Handlan, associate dean 



Aside from being a nostalgic record for students at 
Potomac State College, each yearly issue of the Cata- 
mount carries an important history of this college. 
The changes that have been made, the advances in 
knowledge, new attitudes, and the way each class 
faces the challenges of its year are found within the 
covers of the yearbook. The tempo of the time is here, 
and how each class searched for solutions to the 
problems of its day is written for all to see. The 
students and their faculty sponsor who worked to 
produce the yearbook are to be congratulated for the 
excellent results which are set here for a record of 
1974.

Uja Amaa promotes unity among Black and minority group students on the Potomac State campus 
through arranging social and educational events, seeking ways of increasing the minority group student

college, and the community. 



PHI SIGMA NU 




Phi Sigma Nu, founded in 1922, has been an outstanding social 
group on the campus of Potomac State College. The fraternity 
was granted a National Charter by the National College Panhellenic 
and has been designated Beta Chapter. 

The fraternity began its year with a successful and entertaining 
pledge party during the fall "Rush Week," which netted them 
several members. In the autumn activities the fraternity sponsored 
a candidate for Miss Homecoming. Miss Deborah Brady reigned as 
princess at the Sigma sponsored "Sweetheart Ball." 

The Fraternity demands college spirit, interest in all college ac- 
tivities, high moral standards, individual development of character 
and leadership, and scholastic achievement from all its members. 

Men who are now away from the college but often return to 
visit their old fraternity are indications of the fact that the bonds of 
friendship established in Phi Sigma Nu provide lasting memories in 
future years.

"Cream 'em" in the Homecoming parade, the holding of open dorms, the selection of a candidate 
for homecoming queen, and providing refreshments during finals week.

in order that a closer relationship between the administration and 
the student body could exist. Although the council's main objec- 
tives are of the administrative nature, it also promotes school spirit 
and fellowship. 

Throughout the school year the Student Government promoted 
many important events. They planned the Homecoming Parade and 
other Homecoming events and sponsored the Wednesday Night 
Movies at the Church-McKee Art Center.

WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION 




MEMBERS 

Women's Athletic Association was organized to popularize women's athletics and to provide leisure 
time activities. This organization is open to all women enrolled in Potomac State and provides sound 
recreation for all those interested in sports. 

If a total of two hundred fifty points is earned by a member, she is entitled to an emblem. The points 
are acquired by participation in tournaments, meeting attendance, group hikes, and other various ways. 

The aims of W.A.A. are to develop standards of leadership and good sportsmanship and to promote 
those activities which may be adapted to the leisure time of later school. W.A.A. has the very appropriate 
motto: "A sport for every woman and every woman in a sport."

The purpose of the DHDC is to represent the views and attitudes held by the residents of Davis Hall 
Dormitory; to provide activities and functions for the residents of Davis Hall; to represent Davis Hall 
Dorm as an institution on campus working for the bettermen of college community life. 

Members of the council, including two representatives from each floor, as well as a set of officers, 
all meet every other Tuesday to discuss ideas for the Dormitory. Activities have included purchase and 
construction of the new volleyball court located in front of Davis Hall, several open dorms, purchase of 
game room equipment, and the sponsoring of coffee during finals week. 

The council has overcome a few of the many problems of dormitory life and hopes to conquer many 
more, especially the problem of destruction of the property in the dormitory; to overcome this problem 
is perhaps the greatest goal or project for the council in the future.

DEFENSIVE STANDOUTS: Linebackers Ray Marshall, left, of Clairton, Pa., and Randy Noel of Covington, Va., were standouts on defense as 
Potomac State's Cats won their opener, 21-13, over Harford on the road. Marshall a standout here two years ago before being injured and 
missing the second half of the season, had eight unassisted tackles, four assists, and sacked the quarterback four times. Noel, all-Coastal 
Conference linebacker and perhaps the best in the league last year, had seven unassisted tackles and six assists in the game. The State 
coaching staff from head coach Cecil Perkins on down believes both are worthy of All-American consideration.

"Sports teaches everyone who is a part of it to be 
proud and unbending in defeat, yet humble in 
victory — to master themselves before they attempt 
to master others. To learn to laugh, but not forget 
how to weep. And most important, it teaches the

Ancient Statue is Origin of PSC Newspaper Title 




When Potomac State became a junior college in 
1921, the staff of the former publication, The Pre- 
paratory Herald, wanted a new title for the college 
newspaper and chose the name Pasquino from one 
of the famous "talking" statues of Rome. The statue's 
origin was derived from a hunchbacked tailor named 
Pasquino, whom Romans feared and respected be- 
cause of his biting, but amusing, sarcasm. After Pas- 
quino's death, the neighborhood people erected an 
antique statue in his memory. This statue became a 
target for sharp commentaries on the life of the 
period — safe because anonymous. The statue 
proved so effective an agent to secret protest that it 
and similar statues began to "talk." 



Carrying news of the campus to students, faculty 
and a wide public is the college newspaper, the 
Pasquino, a fortnightly publication staffed by stu- 
dents majoring in journalism assisted by a group of 
volunteer staff members. 

The Pasquino's press run of 2200 copies is distrib- 
uted to students, faculty and staff on the campus. 
In addition, a mailing list of well over 1000, contains 
the names of parents of all non-commuting students, 
alumni throughout the world, hundreds of other 
colleges and high schools of the tri-state area, 
friends of the college, and advertisers.

The Catamount Staff with completion of the thirty- 
sixth edition of the Catamount, Potomac State's 
college yearbook, hope that we have included all the 
activities and highlights of the school year that 
you will want to remember. Once again we read 
the theme and were reminded that "Time is Rele- 
vant." We hope that each of you realize time has no 
end because yesterday is experience and tomorrow 
is hope. And no matter where you journey you will 
prosper, find success, and use this book often as a 
means of reliving your days at Potomac State Col- 
lege.

Designing a layout 



Catamount is the folk name given to the mountain lion 
and sometimes to the lynx. A savage catlike animal, a 
large fierce wildcat, as in ancient Rome is the Potomac 
State symbol of liberty. Two bits of folklore surrounded 
the life of a cat; the first, being clever, and the second, 
having "nine lives."

Good Witch Chris with a ghoulish friend 



A time. 

Of leaving home and being thrown 

into a different world. Alone. 
Registration. Waiting in lines. Closed classes, 

wrong professors, 8 AM classes. Waiting 

only to wait some more. 
The best of times. 
The worst of times. 

Phantom parties, dances, weekends. 

Finals, term papers, 3-hour labs. 
A Time of adjustment to dorm life. 

Streakers, panty raids, sloe-gin. 

Pulling all-nighters. 
Making friends to be always remembered. 

Joking at the dinner table. Wasting 

time in the Union. Partying at the Attic. 

Open house. 
Wondering how the year has gone so fast. 

Parting with friends you will never 

see again. 
Our time at Potomac State for 1974 has ended 

But the relevance remains forever.
