POTOMAC 



STATE 




COLLEGE 





'76 SPIRIT 

"Sometimes, you've fallen on your foce strug- 
gling for that American Dream, your Utopian 
expectations, but you keep getting up. You're 
aware of your continual internal problems. But 
compared with any other country, you're still the 
fairest, richest, and 'freest' land of all." 
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA — 
YOU'VE COME A LONG WAY." 






Homecoming activities were kicked off with a pep rally 
Friday afternoon. A special barbeque dinner was served 
on the quadrangle. Registration for parents and alumni 
was held in the Student Union on Saturday morning, fol- 
lowed by the 1 975-76 Bicentennial Homecoming Parade. 
The Baltimore Red Devils were defeated by a score of 1 6- 
0. Half-time activities included the coronation of the 
Queen, and a stirring performance by the PSC Marching 
Band, "America," commemorating the nation's Bicenten- 
nial. "Rita and the Heartbeats" provided the music for the 
Homecoming Dance. 



Linda Cole, Pre-Med major from Romney, W. ^a., is the first 
female to become Student Body President in the history of 
PSC. Bob McDonald, Pharmacy major from Keyser is serving 
as president of the 1976 Sophomore class. Denis Pritt, Physi- 
cal Therapy major from Clarksburg, W. Va., is the Freshman 
class president. 




SHINING 
STARS 



you wisn upon a star. 
Dreams will take you very far. 
But when you wish upon a dream 
Life ain't always what it seems. 
You're shining star, no matter who you are 
Shining bright to see, what you can truly be 
Shining star comes into view 
To shine its watchful light on you 
Give you strength to carry on 
Make your body big and strong 
Born a man child of the sun 
Saw my work had just begun 
Found I had to stand alone 
Bless it now, I've got my own.

McGann. 




Everybody is a star 

Who could rain and chase the dust away 

Everybody wants to shine 

Who could come out on a cloudy day 

till the sun that loves you brown 

When the system tries to bring you down 

Never have to shine at night 

And you don't need darkness to put your thing right. 

Everybody is a star 

I can feel it when you shine on me 

I love you for who you are 

Not for what you feel you need to be 

Ever catch a falling star 

Ain't no stoppin' till it's on the ground 

Everybody is a star 

One big circle turning round and round. 



Shine . . . Shine . . . Shine 



The Homecoming Parade consisted of nine divi- 
sions and 56 units and was the largest ever 
sponsored by the college and probably the larg- 
est ever in Keyser.

The 33rd annual Homeconning game, between

Muzika and Freshman running back Fred Brown 
who rushed for over 1 00 yards.

America in the 1760's and 1770's was a nation of 
young people. Three-eighths of the signers of the 
Constitution of 1 787 were in their twenties or thir- 
ties. We often pay tribute to the brilliance of this 
generation, but we overlook its youthfulness. 







'7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 ! Blow your whistle!" 



The Revolutionary message is based upon 
the dignity of man; it broadcasts the 
importance of individuals existing in a con- 
dition of mutual respect. It symbolizes 
achievement and growth, reminding us of 
the past that shapes our present, and gives 
hope for a productive future.

"Football is a source of obtaining many goals. It is not only a phys- 
ical game but a mental game as well. Football teaches one his most 
valuable aspects in life, leadership and respect for oneself. It has 
developed my self-confidence and respect for others." 

Steve Brown 



"Football gives a person a feeling of accomplishment by satisfying 
his desire to compete, but the greatest asset is the long-lasting 
friendship that is generated among fellow teammates." 

John Armstrong 






"Football was beneficial to my life; it taught me discipline and gave 
me physical and mental strength."

"I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the P.S.C. basketball 
team. I believe that with a little more experience we could have 
turned a fairly good season into a great season. I only wish I 
could be around next year so I could be a part of what should 
be, according to what will be coming back, a great basketbal 
team." 

Tom Shreve 




"We had a good season; we worked together well, learned a lot, and 
had a good time." 

Dave Ice

Professor Margaret Ellen Rafter 



Rafter to Retire 

Ms. Rafter, Assoc. Prof, of physical education, was 
born in Keyser. She has served PSC for 23 years, 
conning to the campus in 1 953. 

Prof. Rafter has the distinction of having taught 
every female student on the campus for most of 
those 23 years — and many of the mole students in 
and out of the usual physical education classes, as 
in ballroom dancing and crafts. 

But she was more than a teacher: she trained the 
cheerleaders for many years and took them, often 
at her own expense, to events throughout the East; 
she was faculty advisor for Sigma Iota Chi Sorority 
for many years; she was advisor for the WAA for 
her entire tenure; and in her role with physical edu- 
cation and health classes, she advised countless 
young men and women during their troubles. 

Ms. Rafter has traveled extensively in this country 
and in Europe. Her memberships include numerous 
professional societies and many campus commit- 
tees. 

She has been loyal and dedicated, and will long be 
remembered by everyone at Potomac State Col- 
lege.

When our Forefathers decided to make it 
official, they "Put it on paper". . . 



Westvaco's Luke mill did not 
make the paper that the 
Declaration of Independence was 
written on in 1776 . . . but since 
1888 the Luke mill has been 
making quality printing papers 
for important documents, books, 
magazines, encyclopedias, labels 
and packaging and many other 



products that mean better living 
in today's world. 

We're proud to salute our 
nation during its Bicentennial

that, like our great country, 
Westvaco's Luke mill will

The inspiration of plans and dreams lights the 
\ way through the college year. The path has very 
few shadows. With hopeful outlooks all follow 
their own guiding light which signals the begin- 
ning of a new life. By following the light one 
remains close to nature; growth is not always 
contained in buildings but in the beauty that 
'*■ nature reflects.

since you left me standing in this forest alone 

to seek pleasures in your crowd by the shore, 

forgetting the tranquility of the trees 

and the solitude of our love, 

i have found myself melting into the 

quivering earth 
and i think i understand it more as time 

drifts by; 
and though i envy those v/ho share you now 
and deplore this change separating us, 
the times of bliss in which we met 
i should have known were never meant to lost; 
and so, for each tear i shed regretting this 

present 
i shed another in happiness for what we shared 

in the past.

Reminiscing days past, one can look back at his accom- 
plishments with pride hoping that the future will hold 
equally high achievements. Through meditation each one 
learns much about himself and his own impressions about 
others. One's moods change seasonally, thus keeping one 
fresh and alive for tomorrow's tasks and adventures. 




For many it is a time of love and commitment mixed with 
happiness and understanding. For others it is a time of 
slight confusion. It is also a time of creativity when each 
student offers something of himself in a tangible sense. It 
is a time to ponder one's thoughts.

"The absent are never without fault. Nor the present without excuse.

Little things you never notice until they ore gone . . . Every now 
and then things happen that grab your mind, tv/isting the minute 
into the monumental. 

Grov/ing up is a painful process. There are many knocks, bumps, 
and responsibilities to be endured before you are considered a 
mature person. The av/kwardness of meeting people . . . the 
homework to be made up . . . the promises not to be broken . . . 
the decisions faced after graduation . . . tragedies, triumphs, and 
ties . . . the pains of growing up . . . the little things that mature 
us all. 



Life is made of memories. 

Each distinct in our own minds; 
Like phantoms along a street. 

They remain like a persistent dot 
After the flash of a camera . . . 

Remember the Spring of When? 
How it transcends as a glow of faint 

Happenings — serenity . . . leisure; 
Once a bustling fortress of communication. 

Now a wondering few who think 
Occasionally of you.

Yesterdays. 

A hundred of them filled with 

the joy and wonder 
That a thousand tomorrows 
May never bring. 
The events of yesterday take 
Their final form between 
The pages of a book. 
Such a little thing to hold the 

accomplishments of men. 
Such an important thing 

to hold the key to memories.

Upon leaving the position, the faculty sponsor of the CATAMOUNT yearbook wishes 
to notice and publicly to thank those who have really done the work of the yearbook 
for four years: 

Roseanno McCoy, than whom there could be no better editor 

Loretta Lewis, who went from the Potomac State editorship in 1 974 to be edi- 
tor-in-chief of the West Virginia University yearbook in 1 976 

Kim Bailey and Mary Ann McGann, who have brought creativity and imagina- 
tion to the yearbook you now read 

Lana McLaughlin, Deborah Brady, Chris Graham, and Beth Rice, hard-working, 
efficient, and careful business managers 

Dick Fauss, Mike Graziani, Catherine Wilkins, and Brian Bosenberg, who did 
good carnera work, stoically endured the clamor of our editorial staffs, and 
without whose photographs, of course, there would be no yearbooks at all 

and their boss and tutor, ever-willing Dennis Carpenter 

Kim Alt, Dixie Dixon, Carlo Doll, and Hazel Hott, who were always willing to 
help whenever asked 

Mr. Nuzum, who has graciously offered help for many different things 

Mr. Smith, who did everything he could for our fiscal and physical needs 

Irene Brown Hartman, whose machinery we found invaluable, with Yancey 
Overby and Ken Comes 

Mr. Gordon, who left a comfortable balance behind, and the college president 
for "constructive criticism."
