TO 
HON. E. G. SMITH 





Honorable Edward Grandison Smith 



MONTICOLA 




Judge E. G. Smith 

Judge Smith is a native of West Virginia and of old Harri- 
son County stock — a true mountaineer. Today, he is recognized 
as one of the ablest members of the Clarksburg Bar, who, for 
over thirty years has devoted himself exclusively to the practice 
of law at Clarksburg and furthering the interests of his Alma 
Mater, West Virginia University. 

Judge Smith was born on Horse Run, Harrison County, 
April 8, 1868. He was reared on his father's farm and attended 
the public schools of West Milford. In later years he came to 
West Virginia University and received his LL.B. degree in 
1889 and in 1892, he received the same degree from Washington 
and Lee University, which institution he represented in the 
Southern Intercollegiate Contest in Oratory in 1892 at Vander- 
bilt University, winning the medal. He was admitted to the 
bar in 1892 and entered into practice at Clarksburg. 




MONTICOLA 



During his many years of practice, lie lias won several high 
honors at the bar, taking part in some of the most important 
cases of litigation coming before the Harrison County bar. His 
offices, located at Clarksburg are among the best equipped in 
the country for law, work that has taken years to complete. 

In 1912, Judge Smith was put forward as his party's choice 
for the office of judge of the Supreme Court of Appeals, hereby, 
starting his honorable and famed term of public life. There is 
no alumnus of our University who has more reverence and de- 
votion for this institution than Judge Smith. He is a man of 
vision in the interests of our University, this being shown by 
his election to presidency of the West Virginia University 
Alumni Association for three consecutive years and, upon the 
creation of the Board of Governors in 1927, Judge Smith was 
elected president by its members. To meet him, is to meet a 
true Mountaineer, the kind that has made our University a 
great educational institution for the sons of West \'irginia.

/rcs^man Closs "Klstory 

On September nineteenth, nineteen hundred and twenty-seven, the 
freshmen, seven hundred strong, first appeared upon the campus. For 
the University we were just so much grist for the mill; for the upper- 
classmen, forgetful of their own turbulent University birth, we were 
so many persons to be neglected or admired; for the fraternities we 
were a certain number of targets for paddles. 

Holt Woodell, President of the student body, addressed us at our 
first gathering and extended his best and most sincere wishes to us, the 
new students, and expressed the hope that each one of i 
with success in the environment of the University life. We were ap- 
ed to as individuals, to work together in a common cause, for a 
common end, in making West Virginia a bigger and better University. 
We were instructed to jump to the fore, put our shoulders together and 
push onward for the greater honor and glory of the University. 

There was a cordiality of welcome evidenced by practically the 
entire student body and we realized that the opening of the school year 
meant a revival of the true Mountaineer spirit. After struggling through 
the bewildering maze of registration, the burden of first assignments, 
the strange environment, and the dubious aspects of a new existence, 
the Freshmen Class was formally organized on October 5th, and officers 
were chosen to lead the plebes. 

Paul Vannoy, Morgantown, was elected as Freshman Cheerleader at 
the thuse held previous to the West Virginia-Carnegie Tech game. In 
the annual push-ball contest between the F'reshmen and Sophomores, the 
plebes were awarded a decisive victory by the Fi Baters who sponsored 
the engagement. 

Our athletic teams have been unusually successful and with the 
inHux of members of this year's Little Mountaineers into the varsity camp 
next September, competition of high calibre for the various berths is 
assured. Scholastically, we have made great strides. George L. Johnson 
distinguished himself by leading the Honor Roll, not only of the Freshmen 
Class but of the whole University for the first semester of the current 
year with an average of 96.18, carrying 16 semester hours of work. 

Virginia Stannard and Kathcrine Hinkle brought recognition to the 
ass by winning first and seventh awards respectively in the national 
contest sponsored by the 4 H Clubs of America. 

All in all we have passed through a chaotic year. Many eventful 
and strange things have occured to br.'.nd it as an outstanding one in 
in which we have played but a small part. Our year has been comparatively 
free from pugil stic encounters with upperclassmen, although the vigilance 
committee, that august body of enforcement, has at intervals, shown 
idst, the value of restrictions and the rules that have 
been placed upon us. Their methods of enforcement which have resulted 
in H few shaven pates, an occasional sign on the back, and a bit of mid- 
night chastisement, have had a wonderful psychological effect upon the 
entire class. 

It is with sincere humility that we realize our inferiority to the 
classes which have gone ahead and we regard them with the highest respect. 
!ve that we possess the power of great accomplishment and 
and our aim is toward this end. 





With determination, k 
ve look forward to our Sopho 



nness of purpose, and hopeful anticipation, 
year in West Virginia University. 
MARTH.A MOORE, 

Historian.

SERGEANT W. H. RUSSELL 

Serjeant Russell, known by all the students on the campus, will bring 
his long career to a close on May 25. 1928. There has been no personage 
connected with the military department who has been so popular with 
the students as "Sergeant." 

Serseant Russell was born Nov. 26. 1882 at Batavia. N. J. On 
the 27th of December. 1901. he enlisted in the army, serving in thf 
Philipine Insurrection and several years in the states. He was com 
missioned a First Lt, on Sept. 22. 1917 and served in the World War 
following his commission. He was later detailed to the War Prison Bar 
racks at Fort McPherson where he served for several years. On Oct. 30 
1919. he was discharged from service with a commission and later came to 
West Virg-inia University in 1923. 

On May 30 of this year. Sergeant Russell will have served thirty 
years in the service and will retire on pension. The students wish to 
take this opportunity to bid him a sad farewell and years of success.

"Mlountalneer "^eek" 





Repeating "Mountaineer Week", an innovation of last year, nine 
representative students of the University traveled to 76 of the smaller 
high schools, normal schools and colleges situated throughout the State. 
The tour was conducted for the threefold purpose of creating a bene- 
ficial spirit within the State; acquainting their audiences with the State 
University: and to speak generally on higher education. With relation 
to the University, the "U" ambassadors explained the three phases of 
student life: the scholastic, the social, and the extra-curricular. 

Because the State University bears the same relation to State high 
schools as the high school bears to thei rmunicipal grade schools and be- 
cause there are hundreds of seniors in high schools wanting to know 
more about college as Commencement time drew near, "Mountaineer 
Week" was set aside for the enhancement of the leaders of tomorrow. 

The affair was sponsored by F. Roy Yoke, alumni secretary. George 
W. Jackson, captain of the "good will speakers", the student council, 
and by the University Authorities. The latter two bodies shared the 
expenses of the program. "Mountaineer Week" is the most successful 
medium ever attempted by the University to pave the transition from 
high school to college and in upbuilding a pride in the state, many believe 

Instead of following last year's custom of apportioning three teams 
of three men each to visit the schools, the representatives went singly 
and in this way were able to visit more schools less expensively, and more 
effiicacious'y. Because last year's tour encompassed only the larger high 
schools, the brunt of the speaking was done in the smaller high school? 
this year. Liberal co-operation on the part of the principals of the insti- 
tutions greatly assisted in the movement. Special assemblies were called 
in the majority of cases and following these conferences were held with 
a number of the graduating seniors. 

The period was distinctively not intended as an agency to urge 
students to attend the University nor was it utilized as a boost for the 
University. It was simply an attempt to describe the center of the State's 
educational system to those high school students who some day expect 
to matriculate at a college or University. A multiplicity of favorable 
comments and appreciatory letters have followed in the wake of the 
tour, according to Mr. Roy Yoke. The results of the two tours strongly 
indicate that "Mountaineer Week" will be made a regular annual event. 

The men chosen represented every phase of college activity including: 
three athletes, two former presidents of the interfraternity council, the 
the president of the Student Body, an editorial writer for the Law 
Quarterly, a prominent club man and the president of the General 
Engineering Society.

'yivsl (bamn'^asl Virginia WesU^an 

West Virginia University, in their initial game of the 1927 season, 
triumphed over West Virginia Wesleyan by the score of 27-7. This was 
the eighth consecutive victory for the Mountaineers in eight consecutive 
years, since the resumption of football activities betv^een the two schools 
m 1920, before a holiday crowd of nearly 10,000 people and a hot sun 
that made the footing on Mountaineer Field the best for an opening 
game since the stadium was completed. 

The victory was decisive, the Mountaineers scoring two touchdowns 
in the second quarter and one each in the two final periods. Wesleyan 
earned a touchdown scored by Rodriquez, in the final quarter by a bril- 
liant and well earned march of thirty-two yards, which showed the 
latent power in the machine groomed by the Ross brothers. 

Coach Roger s team functioned well in all departments, with the 
exception of forward passing, although the lone one completed by Hardy 
was good for fifteen yeards and the third touchdown made by West Virginia 

A. Glenn scored for the Mountaineers first in the second period, by 
a beautiful dash, after a double pass from Ryan, and a 32-yard run 
goalwards. Hardy netted the second score after line plunging had brought 
the ball within the scoring zone. Garrett made the third marker, and 
Larue scored the final touchdown after a forty yard march in the final 
period. 

The Mountaineers made eleven first downs to six for Wesleyan, 
and held the upper hand throughout the game. McClung's forward pass- 
ing attack featured the play of the Wesleyan team, although Bachet and 
Rodriquez bore the brunt of the line plunging. 

For West Virginia, Hardy's steady work at line plunging through 
the first three periods featured the Mountaineers attack, with occasional 
dashes by Ryan and Glenn. Marshall Glenn backed up the line in great 
-Hlyle in his varsity debut, and intercepted a forward pass from Wesleyan 
at one time when the Methodists threatened the Mountaineers goal. 

The initial victory for 1927 was highly pleasing to Mountaineer fans 
who have been inclined to show a gloomy outlook for the heavy schedule- 
facing the team for the season.

West Virginia, in their second game of the 192 7 season, tied Wash 
ington and Lee University, the score being 6-6. This was the second time, 
in the past ten years that W. & L. has tied the Mountaineers, but never 
that t me have they been able to win a victory. There was a larg- 
er wd to witness the contest, in spite of the terriffic heat. 

The West Virginia team was p'aced in scoring distance for their 
tcuchdown ly a pretty pass which was caught by Keefer. He carri'-d 
the ball to the one yard line and Hardy carried it over from there. 

Washington & Lee tied the score late in the game after they had 
recovered the bail Lut a few lines of their goal due to the fact that one 
of A. G enn's punts went out of bound at that point . But with four 
downs in order to make a touchdown and only a few feet to carry the

Marshall Glenn was not able to participate in this game due to the fact 
that his ankle had been sprained in scrimmage the week before. His true 
value to the team was shown quite clearly throughout the game. If h 
he been able to have backed up the line the outcome of this particula 
game might have been a different story. 

Washington & Lee was represented by a strong and aggressive team 

Their backs ran hard and were extremely hard to drag to the ground 

The work of their line was featured by their tackles. Both of these me: 

and brawny and made an interesting afternoon for the Mount 

aineer backs. 

The playing of West Virginia was not up to par. While part o 

their lack of drive and usual aggressiveness may be blamed on the in

In their twi-iity-lhird annual clash, tht- Pilt Panthers romped to an 

easy victory over the West Virginia Mountaineers at the Pitt Stadium 

by the score of 40-0. 

It was a case of too much Welch, Booth, and the Pitt line, for the 
Mountaineers never really threatened. We'ch, the Pitt captain, svirept 
arcund the ends at wiil, and then switched to throwing deadly forward 
passes to Hagan and Demoise which left the West Virginia defensive men 
standing in their tracks until the pass was on its way. 

Pitt was held scoreless in the initial period, but carried the fight 
to the Mountainecs, Edwards twice trying for goals from the field durin.; 
that session, tut not after the second quarter opened, Pitt took the ball on 
the West Virginia 43 yard line and avanced without a stop. Booth making 
the first tochdown. 

One minute later the most sensational play of the game took place, 
when Welch rece.ved A. Glenn's kickoff on the goal line, raced down 
to the Pitt 30 yard line, where Ryan had his way blocked, cut in to 
avoid this man, and finally cleared the field and ran unaided the remain- 
ing way. A pass from Welch to Hoban brought another Panther touch- 
down before the end of the half. 

At the beginning of the third quarter. West Virginia received the 
ball and advanced lo the Pilt 44 yard line, when an intercepted pass 
by Cutler cut short the first Mountaineer rally. The Panthers again in 
possesion of the ball did not relinquish it until they had again scored. 
The fourth period saw a complete collapse of the West Virginia team, for 
a second siring Panther team scored two touchdowns in rapid order, 
and the 40-0 score represents the same score made by Pitt in 1913, and 
equals the largest margin ever attained by a Panther team over the 
Mountaineers.

The Wesl V.rs.nm and Lafayette College teams battled to a 7-7 
deadlock, in the fourth game of the season, in a struggte that marked 
the return to form on the part of the Mountaineers sufficient to hold at bay 
one of the most powerful teams ever to play on Mountaineer Field. It 
also broke the string of successes for the Lafayette Maroons, which h.id 
stretched through parts of three seasons. 

Hanlon scored the touchdown for Lafayette when, within three 
minutes after the game started he scooped up a Mountaineer fumbl- 
on the West Virginia 47 yard line and raced unimpeded over the f 
line. Keefer scored for the Mountaineers after catching a pass from A. 
Glenn, and running 25 yards for the touchdown. Both ittompis for the 
extra points were good. Layayette threatened often, but a stone-wall de 
fense stopped them deep in West Virginia territory on three separate 
occasions, and they were unable to score with three attempted place kicks. 

Guest, Halon, Shellenberger starred for the Maroons and Keefer, A. 
Glenn and Larue proved to be the stars for the Mountaineers, although 
the line share of the glory goes to the light Mountaineer line, which wa.i 
outweighed but not outfought, and proved to be the stumbling block for 
the Lafayette team. 

This proved to be one of the greatest games ever played on 
Mountaineer Field, in which a reorganized West Virginia team stopped 
the winning streak of the Lafayette Maroons, who had trimuphed six- 
teen successive times since early in the season of 192 5 without a single 
set back or tie score.

jFlftl) (3ame- (Georgetown 

In their second annual clash, the strong Georgetown University team 
romped to an easy victory over the West Virginia Mountaineers at 
Griffiths Field by the score of 3 5-0. 

West Virginia, not having fully recovered from the effects of their 
terrific struggle with Lafayette, found the Hilltoppers at their best. The 
latter team had been beaten by Syracuse, on the proceeding Saturday, 
in a game in which they were outscorcd but not outp ayed. Consequently 
Georgetown was out for blood in their game with the Mountaineers. 
They played as a team inspired and everything that they tried seemed 
to work successfully. Their running attack, lead by the brilliant Nork 
was well nigh irresistable. 

At the beginning of the third period. West Virginia received th-- 
ball and advanced deep into Georgetown territory, but a fumble put an 
end to the only real Mountaineer rally. The Hilltoppers again in 
possession of the ba'l did not relinquish it until they had again scored. 

The playing of West Virginia was not up to par, and while part of 
their lack of drive and usual aggressiveness may be blamed to the fact 
that they had played through three hard games on successive Saturdays 
preceeding this game, their play as a whole was not up to the general 
standard that has been set by Rodgers coached teams in the past. 

Nork, of Georgetown, stood out as the shining light of the entire 
contest. He was at his best in this game and gave an exhibition of 
general all-around ability that has seldom been equaled in gridiron 
history. The work of Brewster, stalwart Mountaineer tackle, stood out 
conspicuously.

Carnegie Tech repeated their victory of last year over the 
Mountaineers, but not by a similar score, winning this time here on 
Mountaineer Field, by the score of thirteen to six, which indicated the 
advantage which the Tartans actually had over the Mountaineers. 

The first downs were fifteen to sixteen in favor of Carnegie Tech, 
but many of them were made by long runs and gains from passes, which 
covered more ground for them in all of the advances. 

Letzcltcr and English scored the touchdowns for the Tartans, thr 
former counting in the first period, and English getting a second mark 
on a complted pass in the third period. The latter attempt at goal was 
successful. 

Keefer tallied for the Mountaineers in the second period, after they 
had made a sustained march of 52 yards, and were halted on an incom- 
plete pass over the goal line, but the West Virginia team was strong in 
this period, and took the resultant Tech punt at mid-field and from 
there advanced the ball in six plays to the goal line. A. Glenn's attempt 
at goal was blocked. 

Carnegie Tech showed the effects of two defeats at the hands of 
f^itt and W. & J., but rallied sufficiently through the excellent work of 
Morehcad, Harpster, and Letzeltcr to down the Mountaineers who played 
a game far above that displayed at Georgetown on the previous week. 
Keefer, Larue. A. Glenn and Garrett starred for West Virginia. 

Tech held the advantage clearly in the first and last quarters, were 
held even in the third, and were easliy outplayed by the Moitntaineers in 
second and third perods. 



SeventI) (Bame-Mlissourl 

The sevenilh game of the season was played with the University of 
Missouri at the stadium of the latter team, and the Tigers emerged vic- 
torious by the score of I 3-0. 

This game, although resulting in a defeat, was one of the best of 
the year. The Mountaineer team played good hard football throughout 
the entire, game and had good fortune been with them, they probably 
would have emerged victorious. It was simply a case of two good teams 
playing on even terms throughout most of the game and the breaks 
deciding the issue in the favor of Missouri. 

The half ended with the score 0-0 and the Mountaineers having the 
ball in Missouri territory most of the time Time after time they carried 
the ball down as far as the Tiger 20 yard line, but they seemed to lack 
the punch to advance it past this point. 

During the early part of the second half the West Virginia team 
again found its stride and took the ball far into M ssouri territory, when 
Mehrle, crack Tiger back, intercepted a forward pass and returned th'; 
ball pratically to the West Virginia goal line. Here the Missouri team 
scored. But a short time afterwards, this same Mehrle caught the 
Mountaineers off guard and returned a kick to the goal line for the 
second and last touchdown of the game. 

For West Virginia, the line plunging of Keefer and the off-tackle run* 
of Larue were sensational. While for Missouri, the great work of Mehrle. 
their illusive back, stood out.

The West VirKiTi... Mcuntaineers thv 
Davis and Elkins C ollt>;.- l,.fore a small 
by the score of 15-12. 

The Mountaineers scored tvi'o touchdowns in the second period, and 
a goal placement in the third quarter to gain their points, while the 
Senators scored one touchdown each in the second and fourth sessions. 
All of the attempts for points after touchdowns were failures. 

A. Glenn scored for the Mountaineers early in the second quarter, 
after West Virginia had received the ball on an exchange of punts on the 
D *i E. 40 yard line. From this point with a long pass, Larue to M. 
Glenn, helping materially, the brilliant Albert Glenn cracked through 
on the final play for the touchdown. Soon afterward, the Mountaineers 
marched 3 5 yards, only to lose the ball on downs. D. & E. then proceeded 
to get a spectacular run by Warren, for 30 yards, and a touchdown tieing 
the score. Mike Hardy, who substituted for Keefer. took part in five 
plays immediately thereafter, three runs and two passes, the final one to 
Garrett. These five plays netted West Virginia 65 yards and a touchdown, 
and put them back in the lead. 

In the third period, the fans were thrilled by some breaks, one of 
(hem being a 5 7 yard run by Wagner. West Virginia profited on a 
fumble recovered by Latham, and the Mountaineers marched 52 yards, 
to the 20 yard mark, from which point A. Glenn kicked a placement goal. 

The Senators returned the fight and took the ball from their 45 
yard line for a touchdown, by the aid of several passes and line plays. 

Albert and Marshall Gleen, Larue and Garrett starred for West 
Virginia, while Rengle, Warren, and Bowles were best for D. 8c E.

The West Virginia Mountaineers rose to brilliant heights in the 
final game of the 1927 season, to hold a powerful Washington and 
Jefferson Presidents to a 6-6 tie, each team holding distinct advantages, 
the Mountaineers with a surprising defense in their scoring zone, and 
the Presidents with a powerful ofTense on a miserably muddy field. The 
Mountaineer line played as men possessed, with brilliant ends, recovering 
fumbles, blocking kicks, and throwing all of the Presidents good play 
for naught. 

West Virginia look advantage of Washington and Jefferson's mis- 
plays although greatly outrushed and outweighed. Two recovered fumbles 
in the first period enabled the Mountainers to stop an early W. «c J. rush, 
and brilliant defense in the scoring zone halted the Presidents on four 
other occasions. The recovery of a fumbled punt in the fin.il period gave 
the Mountaineers another opportunity, and this time they scored making 
It a tie. A final blocked punt almost cost W. & J. a great game, with 
the Mountaineers in possession of the ball on the two yard line as the 
game ended. 

Although the game ended in a tie, the result was exceedingly pleasing 
to the West Virginia fans. The Mountaineers were the underdogs through- 
out the game and only by playing better than they knew how were 
they able to stave o(T defeat. The game with W, «c J. is always one of 
the most interesting ones on the West Virginia schedule and there is 
to be more pleasure on the part of Mountaineer fans derived from a credit- 
able showing against our time honored President than from most any 
other game of the year. 

Amos and Heisel were the stars for the visiting team, while A. Glenn's 
punting saved the day for the Mountaineers.

Summary of ^res^man football Season 

The freshman team of this year, although possibly they do not look 
so impressive from the standpoint of games won or lost, was composed 
of many promosing players and much valuable Varsity material is ex- 
pected to be derived from within their midst. In Potts, Stump, Varney, 
Gordon, Morris, Plaster, Joseph and Bartrug, Coach Martin had men 
of exceptional promise. 

In their first game of the season, the Vice-Presidents of Washington 
and Jefferson triumphed over the Little Mountaineers by the score of 7-6. 
It was a hard fought game with the teams evenly matched, and some 
exciting football resulted.

Review of tl)e Season 



h.ind from 

1 practicint; 
had been torn 
■ delay ensued 



With three veterans, Black, Hagbertj, and Capl. Tiiyl.. 
the 1926-27 team, the prospects tor a successful seas,. 
were exceptionally bright this year. The squad did not I 
as early as usual this year due to the fact that the "Ark" 
down to make room for the new Field House and som 
durinK the negotiations for the use of the new High School gym. 

The first game was played at home with the strong Salem College 
team furnishing the opposition. Althcugh Salem had defeated Davis and 
Elkins a few nights before their game with the Mountaineers they did 
not live up to expectations and the Varsity won the contest by a score of 
thirty-two to twenty. 

Carnegie Tech was our next opponent and West Virginia emerged 
victorious in a listless game the score being thirty-eight to twenty-nine. 

The first game played away from home was with our old rival West 
Virginia Weslcyan. The Bob Cats had every thing to win and nothing 
to lose and played with such vigor that the Varsity was extended to win. 
The final score was thirty-six to twenty-seven. 

Allegheny a school that usually supports a strong basketball team 
was not up to par this year and the Varsity had little Irouble winning 
from them by a score of thirty-two to twenty-one. 

The following week-end the Mountaineers invaded Western Pennsyl- 
vania. Their first game was with the University of Pittsburgh. The un 
defeated Panther quintet rode rough shod over West Virginia .ind in con- 
sequence the first game of the season was lost by the score of fifty-one to 
twenty-six. 

The following night Grove City College was played and defeated in 
a close game that ended with the score of thirty-five to twenty-one. 

The University of Detroit, a newcomer on the West Virginia schedule, 
was responsible for our second defeat of the season. This school had 
an experienced well balanced team and outscored the Varsity forty-one tu 
thirty-four. 

The next game was played at home and the Wesleyan Bob Cats 
were again defeated. The whistle ending the contest fouTid West Vir- 
ginia on the long end of a forty-three to thirty-four count. 

This year's annual Southern trip found the West Virginia team at 
its best and as the consequence Washington and Lee was defeated in 
a closb came that was played in Huntington by a score of forty-four 
to forty-two. The following night V. P. I. was swamped in a game that 
was played at Bluefield by a score of forty-seven to twenty-four. The 
trip ended in Charleston where a professional team known a< the Chirlcston 
Senators and composed of many ex-Mountaineer stars was defeated in a 
game that ended fifty-five to forty-one. 

With the season half over and only two games having been lost West 
Virginia's troubles began. Marshall Glenn, the stellar sophomore forward 
sprained his ankle in the game at Charleston and was therefore unable 
to play in the first of the three games games with Davis and Ellkins. How- 
ever, the five men that did play agamst the wonder team from Elkiiis 
played us though inspired and it was not until the last few minutes that 
the Senators were able to win by a score of forty-three to forty-six. 

The next game was played away from home and the Mountaineers 
were defeated by Washington and JefTerson by a score of twenty-eight 
to twenty-nine. 

The next three games were return games with Grove City, Carnegie 
Tech and Allegheny. With Marshall Glenn back in the line up very little 
trouble was experienced in subduring these teams by the following scorrs: 
30 to 24. 33 to 30, and 37 to 29.

REVIEW OF THE SEASON 

The second game with D. & E. which was played on the latter's 
floor found the Mountaineers without the services of Jim Black, the 
veteran guard. Although the team worked hard D. & E. had little trouble 
defeating them by the score of 39 to 28. 

The University of Pittsburgh team came to Morgantown for their 
return game with the Mountaineers with a string of eighteen consecutive 
victories to their credit. The varsity was primed for the occasion and 
battled so stubbornly that whas has been termed "The greatest college 
team in the country" could only defeat them by three points. The final 
score was 42 to 45. 

The third and last game with D. & E. was played in Clarksburg. Here 
again the Scarlet Hurricane emerged victorious. The score was 31 to 41. 

In the final game of the season the Mountaineer team was i na revenge- 
ful mood and as a consequence Washington and Jefferson, our oldest rival, 
was defeated by the score of 58 to 37. 

Captain Truehart Taylor played a consistently good game through- 
out the year and led the team in scoring. Marshall Glenn, the other 
forward, is one of the best floor men that West Virginia has had and 
should make a good record in his remaining two years of Varsity competi- 
tion. Hagberg, Black, Radcliffe and Fox held up their share of the 
burden admirably, and as a consequence one of the most successful 
season in recent years resulted. Thirteen games \vere won and seven 
lost.

Summary of Xil^restUng Saason 

Although, from the standpoint of matches won and lost, the wrestling 
season may not seem so impressive, when one considers that the pick of 
the Collegiate wrestling teams were met by our school this year, the out- 
come of the season is quite satisfactory. 

The first match of the season was held away from home and resulted 
in a victory for Indiana by the score of 1 4 to 9. The Mountaineers started 
off well, winning time decisions in the 115. 125 and 135 pound classes, 
but as the bout progressed, the going became more difficult, and the 
1 loosiers merged victorious. It was a costly defeat for West Virginia, 
for Nixon, the heavyweight entry was injured. Brill. Cox and Cirdon 
showed to decided advantage in this particular contest. 

The second bout of the year was with the University of Michigan, a 
school that had won the Western Conference Wrestling Championship the 
preceeding year. The Mountaineers showed the effects of the hard 
struggle with Indiana and the outcome of the meet with Michigan resulted 
in an 1 8 Vb to 4Vi! victory for the Big Ten entry. Nixon, due to his 
injury in the first night, was unable to participate in this contest. 

Our first wrestling match at home was held with the University of 
Illinois furnishing the opposition. Although the match ended with that 
school on the long end of a 25 to score, the closeness of the contest 
is not told if the score alone be considered. Several of the bouts went 
into extra periods and the exhibition and showing made by the Mount- 
aineers was nothing to be anything but proud of. Illinois has as well 
balanced and as aggressive a team as has visited our University for many 
a year. 

In the fourth contest of the season, we entertained the Oklahoma A. 
and M. team. This is the school that has held the National Wrestling 
Championship for the past few years and is a school that features this 
particular sport . With three members of their team that are candidates 
for the coming Olympic team, they were not to be beaten, and the match 
ended with the score 2 7 to in favor of the westerners. It is quite a 
treat to watch this Oklahoma team in action, and although the mntch was 
rather one-sided, the crowd that witnessed the contest enjoyed the exhibi- 
tion thoroughly. 

Our first win of the season was registered against the team represent- 
ing Western Maryland. Wrestling is a new sport in this school, and ihi 
Mountaineers had little trouble in winning falls in all of the matches. 

The outcome of the last match is something that will not be soon 
forgotten in the minds of the followers of West Virginia teams. This 
bout was at the United States Naval Academy and the strong Navy team 
furni.shed the opposition. The Mountaineers entered as the underdog and 
Lt was only through sheer determination not to be denied that they merged 
victorious with the score 21 to 8 in their favor. Much of the credit for 
this victory should go to Cooper, the little 1 1 5 pounder, he started the 
boys in the right track by winnmg his match, which was the first of the 
evening. After seeing that the wonders from the Navy were not unbeat- 
able, the other West Virginia men entered into the contest with new 
determination, and as a result a wonderful victory was achieved. 

There are bright prospects for wrestling during the coming yeas 
None of the members of this year's team are to be graduated, and with 
Captain-elect Cox, ex-Captain Suder, Brill, Cooper, Girden. Harrick, and 
the Nixons back for the coming season, things seem to be very promising 
for the coming year.

Summary of Season 



sbal! America's own ranks second only to football in the 

athletic life of the Mountaineers. In considering the season from the 
standpoint of games won or lost or from the season's total number of 
runs, the result in 1927 was not as satisfactory as it might have been. 
But when you consider the fact that most of the tri-state rivals of the 
University did not support teams, making it necessary to schedule games 
with professional clubs, the season was very satisfactory. 

Having lost two excellent infielders, Rowand and Farley and two out- 
fielders. Captain Pfleger and Nugent, the prospects for a successful season 
were not too bright. But Coach Rodgers worked hard with material 
at hand and a team capable of holding its own in college circles was 
placed on the field. 

The brunt of the pitching fell on the broad shoulders of John 
a capable pitcher, was bothered throught- 
ore arm. Sam Lopinsky who had done ex- 
years, worked to advantage more or less 
enjoyed fair success, considering the fact 



for him on the 



:.ty. 



Harsanyi. Br

The brilliant Captain elect Phillips played in his customary highly 

successful manner at short stop. Ed Morrison, regular first baseman 

years, held down that difficult position in fine style. 

1 the freshman team and Hodges of the inter-fraternity 

jcond and third base respectively. The fielding of both 

is rather erratic, but they always redeemed themselves 

the field when they came to bat. Vacheresse had a 

= rage with the bat than any one on the team. 

Captain Lewis, Hand and Bill Harrick made up the outfield. They 

composed a capable and speedy trio. 

The catching was ably handled by Patrick and Humphrey. Both of 
these men possess strong arms and were fair hitters. 

The first two games of the season were played with the Fairmont 
Teachers College. The varsity worked well and both were won by 
scores of 5 to 3 and 5 to I respectively.

[ONTICOLA 



Summary? of Season 



The next contest, which was with the strong Marshall College team, 
found Harsanyi in fine form for the first game. West Virginia won thi- 
contest by the score of 3 to 2. But the visitors won the second game 
of the series by the score of 6 to 0. 

In place of the annual eastern trip, the Varsity took a jaunt 
through the midd'e west this year. Beginning with Goodyear Industrial 
University, games were played with the University of Mcihigan. Michigan 
State College and Notre Dame. Two games being played with the last 
school mentioned. All of these games were lost, two by one run and 
two by a two run margin. 

The next week found the Varsity in Fairmont, playing that city's 
representative in the mid-atlantic league. The game resulted in a 6 to 
6 tie. 

The following Friday and Saturday, Juniata College was our oppo- 
sition at home. We played and won two interesting games with them 
by the score of 4 to 3 and 12 to8. 

The next four games were played with the Clarksburg club in the 
Mid-atlantic league. Marietta College and the Quantico Marines. All 
these games were interesting, especially the ones with the Marines, but 
they were all lost by close scores. 

The last game with Wasedollino College, of Japan. These colorful 
Japanese students, who play baseball as it should be played, won both 
of their games with us. 

The game with the alumni, which is a cross between baseball 
and a side show, was won by the varsity by the score of 6 to 4. Coach 
Rogers, as usual, was the big gun for the alumni. 

It is to be regretted that so many of our natural rivals have given 
up baseball and every one that is interested in the sport hopes that 
many of them will see fit to resume it in the near future, making a much 
more interesting schedule for the Mountaineers possible.

!J\evlcw of ^rack Season 

West \ irninirt's past season in Intercollegiate Track and Field circles 
was one of its most successful. A policy of gradual development has 
yuided the effort of Coach Smith, who is in charge of this important sport, 
beginning with but litt»e experienced material Coach Smith developed a 
team that more than held its own with any of its tri-state competitors. 

Work started indoors in February, the squad moving to the track 
for practice in March, as soon as the weather permitted. By April, train- 
ing had progressed sufficiently so that elimination trials could be held. 
Another month was then devoted to intensive training. Our schedule was 
such that it was evident that only hard work could overcome the strenuous 
opposition we were to face. 

The opening meet presented the strong Geneva team at the Stadium. 
With the renowned sprinter, Butler and the giant Hubbard among their 
numbers. Coach McMillan s team lookcd particu.arly dangerous. Although 
But.er ran true to form, winn.ng three hrsts in the sprints, the West 
Virginia team performed in a capable manner and won the meet by the 
score of 80 to 55. 

A dual meet with W. and J. was the next attraction. This was ih': 
first time for some years that our rivals from Washington have supported 
a track team and the Vars.ty had little trouble winning by the onesided 
score of 120 to 15. W. and J. only managed to score one first place, that 
being the two mile event. It Coach Smith hadn't seen fit to keep Stender 
out of that event, our opponent would not have been so fortunate as to 
have tallied a first place. 

For the first time since 1922. the University of Pittsburgh track team 
defeated West Virginia in ihe.r annual meet. Although not unexpected, 
this triumph must have been very gratifying to Coach Frank Shea and his 
Panther followers. Two West Virginia boys were the shining lights for 
the Panthers. Welch look four first places, the javelin, shot, discus and 
broad jump, and five points were made by Gwinn in the hammer throw. 
Captain Okey Morrison was the shining light for the Varsity. Although 
handicapped by a sore leg he captured both hurdle races, equaling the 
state record in the high hurdles. Buvinger and Stender were the other 
West Virginia men that captured first places. 

The first of the meetings between the "Big Four" of the tri-statc 
district was held this year. Pitt, Carnegie Tech, W. and J. and West 
Virginia are the schools represented in this mythical conference. West 
Virginia acted as host and as a result one of the finest and most interes:- 
ing track meets that we have ever participated in was successfully com- 
pleted. With the Pitt team top heavy favorite. West Virginia put up a 
spectacular fight, keeping the hnal result uncertain until the last. As a 
result of their splendid ctiort, six new University records were established. 
Captain Okey Morrison set a new record in both the high and low 
hurdles, Montgomery in the quarter mile, Kirchner in the discus, Taylor in 
the broad jump and Keefer in the hammer throw. 

In conclusion it might be said that Coach Art Smith has shown 
remarkable versatility in developing track men. With the green and 
inexperienced material to work with, he has developed the sport a: 
West Virginia to the point where the Varsity is always a dangerous and 
worthy foe for any school. Incidcnily all of the West Virginia records 
have been established during the four years that he has been coach.

HONORARY ENGINEERING SOCIETY 

Tau Beta Pi was founded at Lehigh University in 1855. It is the old- 
est and most representative of the Honorary Engineering Societies and 
is the only one at West Virginia Univeristy. It's purpose is to mark 
in a fitting manner those who have conferred honor upon their Alma 
Mater by distinguished scholarship and exemplary character as under- 
graduates, or by their attainments as alumni. Distinguished scholar- 
ship is not considered the sole criterion although it is the primary requisity 
for admission. 

Alpha chapter of West Virginia was formed from the local Thela 
Psi and was installed in 1922.

We knew you 
would come back here 
Just as soon as you 
had looked at the 
so-called "beauties" 

We were handicapped by 
scarcity of material fit to 
print, but even so. we hope 
you'll like this section. 

Wliether you like it 
or not — you're going 
to get it despite repeated 
efforts to prevent it. 



We are enabled to, and 

take great pleasure 

in dedicating this 

Muddy-Cola section of 

The 1929 Monticola to 

that self-applauding mass 

of nincompoops masquerading 

as the student body of W. V. U 



Enough of this — 
Put .your boots on and 
wade through the mire 
will be the first trip fo 
■many of you, we know- 
AND HOW!

MONTICOIA— 



Saturday Clterar^ fia^z 

(With siiicei-Pst apolofjies to the Athenapiim and tlie Scril)h1ers Club) 

YOUSAPS FOIBLES: — 

THE GREAT FISHES AND THE LITTLE PISHES: The grind-eds 
were drawing in the net which they had cast over the campus and it was 
full of all kinds of fish. The little fish escaped thru the meshes of the 
net and got back into circulation, but the big fish were all caught and 
hauled in to be slaughtered. Moral: Insignificance often brings safety. 



THE PI PHI AND THE CHEESE: A large black Pi Phi, seeing a 
Kappa walking across the campus with a piece of cheese, addressed her 
thus: 

"Hello, you big Kappa, You! Where are you going with that pice of 
cheese?" 

"That ain't no piece of cheese! It's a Sigma Nu!" angrily replied the 
big Kappa. 



THE BOY AND THE CHI OMEGA: Au ed was stung by a Chi 
Omega. He ran back to his frat house and told one of the older brothers. 
"Altho it pains me very much, 1 did touch it lightly." That is just it," 
replied the other brother. "The ne.xt time you touch a Chi Omega, grasp 
It boldly, and it will be as soft as silk in your hand and will not hurt 
you in the least." 



THE ALPHA XI LADY AND THE SAP: One day a lady Alpha Xi 
was taking a sap home when they crossed a bridge and the lady Alplia 
Xi saw her reflection in the water below. Knowing that so lovely a re- 
flection could come from no one except herself, she held tightly to her 
sap with one hand and powdered her lovely nose with the other. 



THE DELTA GAMMA GRASSHOPPER AND THE PHI MU ANT: 
Once upon a time there was a nice lady Delta Gamma Grass-hopper co- 
vorting over the greens of our lovely campus enjoying the beautiful moon- 
light to the fullest extent of her youthful desires. Suddenly she came 
upon a Phi Mu ant diligently wending her way to the library. Now the 
Delta Gamma grasshopper being an inquisitive soul did accost the little 
Phi Mu ant and did speak thus: "Why goest thou to the library, oh 
very insignificant ant, when all the world lies open tonight? Why not 
l)e like me and en,i<)y yourself?" The little Phi Mu ant quouth not a word 
but continued on her journey. The silly Delta Gamma grassliopper kicked 
up her heels and with a catty laugh continued in her conquest of pleasure. 
— Winter came and with it the exams. The silly little Delta Gamma 
Grasshopper busied out of school and llie diligent little Phi Mu ant made 
the honor squad.

West Virginia has, in the last few years, progressed 
in every line of industry, until now it is no longer a 
mere infant in the world of business. 

Keeping pace with this progress the system of 
transportation throughout the state has also been great- 
ly impjroved. Today the State is a network of bus lines 
so situated that one can conveniently travel to any here- 
tofore "out-of-the-way" point.

THE POLITICIAN 

The politician is the man who always re- 
members you about the time of the spring 
elections. He walks up and suavely says to 
you: "Well old man, I haven't seen you for 
finite a while, where do yon keep yourself? 
Mustn't stick too close to the books (ha, hi!)" 
Then he gets confidential, takes your hand in 
his, places the other on your shoulder and pro- 
ceeds to mention very seriously and with ,nr^at 
impressiveness — "By the way, old fellow, a 
number of my friends want me to run for of- 
fice, and I'm counting on you to support me for 
all you are worth. I'm not seeking this for 
myself, but since my friends are anxious that 
I have it, I'm making the run to please them," 
Others of this type are Red Mead, Ken Cow- 
den and Sleepy Glenn. 



THE ACTOR 

Among the actors about the place, in addi- 
tion to the appendage at the left, we have 
Mr. W. C. Ayers, the W. ('. standing for Who 
Cares. Mr. Ayers' every gesture is worthy uf 
Barrymore. 'The actor is the man who can 
turn a simple remark about the weather into 
a dramatic incident of touching nature and far 
reaching conseqquences. He is invariably soen 
on the campus deep in thought, his lips moving 
slightly, while he chuckles amusedly to himself 
about the nasty way Steve Vaught acted in 
"In Love with Love." Upon a chance encoun- 
ter, he greets you thus: "What Ho, Horatio? 
.\ha. the guard! Whither away, fair young 
squire with comely wench at your side, on this 
spring morning when all the world is yet sleep- 
ing? Methinks there lurks an air of mischief 
in those glistening eyes| What-wouldst be on 
thy way to the Library? Tarry a bit and even 
I will j<iin you." 




THE ATHLETE 

He is the man who is brought into the living 
room of the fraternity house during rush week 
to show off his big W. V. and srushingly great 
the rushees. At other times he is kept in the 
attic studying "Culture and Self-Improve:ncnt," 
"Clothes and How to Wear Them"— during his 
first two years. By this time he has been suffi- 
ciently trained so that he does not break down 
the furniture when he sits down, bend the 
knives and forks or wear his hat at the table. 
He does not know anything about complexes, 
Intellectual Emancipation, The Russell theory 
of matrimony" or the Decameron, and he doos 
not give a damn. Because of his ability to 
throw things around, including the first per- 
son singular of the personal pronoun, he is 
always sure to get by. This last brings torih 
from us the presentation of another of this 
class — Rudolph Hagberk — who is so aptly nick- 
named "Swede."

It is not often that a University "graduates"' a president and for that 
reason the Class of '2S should feel highly honored. The only difference 
is that the president took fifteen years to get his pass out check and the 
seniors (with few exceptions) get theirs in four years. 

The only team that holds secret practices, never plays a game in 
public, has no captain, rules nor regulations, and plays 365 days a year

"See that blonde over there." Dick remarked to a fellow student as a

"Yes, I see her, hut what of it?" replied his companion. 

"Well, it was like this," began Dick. "We were standing in front of 
the Spot when that dame drifted by. After looking at her I concluded 
that she needed me so I took up the trail. 

"After following some distance and finally screwing up enough cour- 
age to break the news, I ever so gently tapped her on the shoulder and 
eaid, "Beg your pardon but haven't we met some place before." 

"Yes," she replied, "but it wasn't my fault:" and kept right on in hich 
gear. 

"Still hopin gfor success I made another attempt to get better ac-

"I know that I have met you," I began, "but the lime and the place

"That's not half of what has slipped your memory." Sheba snapped, 
".^nd what's more if you don't stop trying to get fresh with me I'll call

SIGMA CHI 
Meeting failed to open for a long time, but (inally Brother Murrin 
arrived from the Chi Omega house whistling "The Sweetheart of Sigria 
Chi." Brother Scott moves that Brother Murrin's pin be lifted for the 
insinuous implication that the above mentioned song was his own per- 
sonal property and that Mary was the ONT5. Brother Littlepage amends 
to read that the song be the personal property of the Chi Omega Chapter 
to use and be used at will so long as he was included. Bi-others Wilt and 
Swearingen break up the meeting by staging a private hotsy tots exhibi- 
tion of the Baltimore as it is danced in Morgantown. 

PHI SIGMA KAPPA 

Meeting barely opened. Brother Heck appoints brother Parriott as 
the worthy successor for Bro. Hobensack as the guiding star for dear old 
Phi Sig in the political firmament. Special instructions were given him 
not to run Jim Wade for cheer-leader since organized cheering seems to 
not be in his line this semester. Brother Moore is extended a vote of 
thanks and confidence for getting Bro. Zoehlicker the membership of foot- 
ball. Brother Wooddell. the silent Cal of the campus, asks that tne 
brothers refrain from voting more than four times in the coming elections 
since it would be a great moral strain for him to close both eyes to cor- 
ruption — four votes being the capacity of one eye. 

KAPPA ALPHA 

Brother Keefer has great difficulty in calling meeting to order since 
Brothers Meisel, Behnke. Strothers. and P'erguson are staging an eating 
contest in the dining room. Brother Red Mead took the floor to advise 
the brothers on how to get along next year without him, but broke into 
sobs when he thought of what the loss would be, especially when it 
comes to personal advertisement in the Athenaeum.

DELTA TAU DELTA 

Brother Holland breaks two gavels calling the meeting to order amid 
the turmoil and <'onfusion caused by Brothers Garrett and Cole arguing 
which one of them threw the two belligerent drunks out. Brother Bot- 
tome moves that Brother Conaway buy a new suit in preparation tor his 
campaign for Presidency. Brother Conaway moves that Brother Bot- 
tome quit going with Brother Morrison's girl. Brother Flannigan ap- 
pointed to investigate from behind the screen in the Pi Phi dining room 
and report the exact state of affairs. Brothers Sample and Simpson 
again congratulate themselves on being the two most highly inebriated 
"toughs" at the Hill Hard Times Party. Meeting finally broken up by 
the police department at the call of Brother Hil Ifor assistance. 
PI KAPPA ALPHA 
Meeting open with the national anthem "Bottle, bottle, who threw 
the bottle." After much deliberation it was decided that Brother Hill be 
transferred to the Delta Gam house to save him the trouble of making 
excuses for missing meetings on Tuesday nights. Brother Johnston ap- 
pointed to see that appropriate reception be given Brother Turner when 
he comes to West Virginia. Brother Kirtley's su.ggestion for a beer 
party at said reception overruled. Brothers all congratulate themselves 
for being the "foundation" of the famous hill. 
KAPPA SIGMA 
Meeting opened by brothers all filing in and taking their places in 
alphabetical order thus saving a halt hour in roll call. Brother Fletcher 
moves that all brothers put on their foot-ball uniforms as a rushee will 
be up for dinner tomorrow night. Brother McHenry asks if shoulder 
pads are required. Brother Stender makes plea fo a general intoduction 
of members to each other. When asked if he wanted to put it in the 
form of a motion he replied that he would like to but he did not know 
anyone well enough to expect a second. Meeting adjourned at 8:30 so 
the brothers could keep training tor spring football. 
TAU KAPPA EPSILON 
Meeting dropped open. Brothei Rheinhart came in late as usual to 
create a stir. Brother Humphries moved that his picture be sent to the 
journal for advertising purposes. Motion died tor lack of a second. 
Brother Virgin asked all the brothers to refrain by calling him by his 
last name when he is around girls because he feels that some of the girls 
might become embarrassed. Meeting adjourned for baseball practice.

ALPHA GAMMA RHO 

Meeting opened with a short bed time story by Brother Raines about 
a little country girl who came up to him and asked him if the A. G. R.'s 
really owned the Farmers Castle. It was moved and seconded that a 
letter be written to the new dean of the ag school to find out if he 
"belonged" or not — steps to bet aken to prevent his taking office if he 
was not. 

PHI KAPPA PSI 

Meeting opened after a quorum had drifted in from the Kappa House. 
Brother Phillips makes motion to the effect that Brother Jackson refrain 
from "playing" father to the chapter and really do some work. Passed 
with only one dissenting vote (Bro. Jackson's). Brother Scott Lowe 
asked the brothers to observe quiet hours more closely as he was trying 
to work up atmosphere for the next Dramatic Club play. Brother Taylor 
hoarsely whispered that Brother Lowe always had plenty of atmosphere 
— that is, if "fog" was atmosphere. Meeting dismissed during Brother 
Phillips' weekly lecture on "The Ai't of Dressing Well." 
THETA CHI 

A meeting was held simply because the constitution requires that 
one be held once a week. Brother Roberts was reprimanded for making 
so much noise with his slide rule. It was moved and seconded that the 
chapter build a padded cell in which to entertain drunken alumni to-wit: 
Bros. Kramer. Johnston and Hostetler, when they return for "short 
visits." Motion passed without much trouble after Brother Marsh told 
the chapter that the repair bill for furniture broken by above mentioned 
brothers was $35.63% for the week of May 19th. Brother Crouse made 
a speech on "Why I Belong to the Union." (Meeting still in session as 
Brother Crouse is still talking). 

PHI KAPPA SIGMA 

After waiting three hours and fifteen minutes for Brother Willhyde 
to trim his upper lip the meeting was opened. Brothers Johnston and 
Vaught asked to instruct all the new members on the technique of "pull- 
ing the wool" over Dean Stone's eyes. Brother Bias, for the thousandth 
time asks the brothers to "Hurry up and buy the Monticola" since his 
picture is on nearly every page. Brother Wood moves that the chapter 
not expel him for going to Europe with a K. A. Matter taken under con- 
sideration. eMeting calmly (for a change) adjourned. 



QO 



MONTICOLA- 



SIGMA NU 

Meeting opened after seven of the brothers had been given a cold 
shower to sober them up. Brother Snyder reads a Itter from the Military 
department asking the chapter to return the uniforms they borrowed for 
initiation. Brother Ault says that he can not return the things he bor- 
rowed because he still takes military. Brother Cowden makes a short 
speech about the past election and had the brothers all weeping bitter 
tears for not "fighting for Sigma Nu." Brother Monroe asks the chapter 
if Charley Coleman is really a Sigma Nu or a Kappa. Brother Snyder 
tells him that he "was" but that former Brother Coleman was now the 
errand boy at the Kappa House. As is the custom the meeting was ad- 
journed. 

BETA THETA PI 

Meeting opened after the torch-light parade down Foundry Street. 
Brother DoUman came in and a rat bit him thinking that he was a piece 
of cheese. Brother Bycott then gave a talk on the national standing of 
Beta, but fell in a faint when he started in on the local standing. Brother 
Brown asked to be told just who this "guy" Wiggund is that he has 
heard so much about in initiations. Brother Latham instructed to inform 
him. The chapter congratulates Brother Ralston on his drag with Dr. 
P. I. Reed and the chapter boos loudly. Meeting annulled. 

SIGMA PHI EPSILON 

Brother Summers called the meeting to order — six members answered 
the roll call so the outer guard was dispatched to the horse-shoe grounds 
across the street to inform the dear Knights of the Bleeding Heart that 
the time had come again for them to listen to another one of Brother 
Gene Arnold's campaign talks. Brother Fleshman congratulates the fra- 
ternity on having a candidate for governor and reprimands the city police 
department for arresting him — $102.60. Meeting broken up by Broth. ;rs 

M. Glenn and making a dash for the Pi Phi house. 

PHI DELTA THETA 

Meeting called to order by Brother Wiseman. Brother.s Suder and 
Cox stage a 43 minute exhibition wrestling bout for the benefit of all the 
brothers who had been unable to witness their mat abilities during the 
past winter. Considerable discussion ensued on the matter of finding 
some one to fill Brother Bill Thompson's shoes. Brother Harrington 
snickered meanly and added that no one in the chapter had big enough 
feet. Meeting adjourned without much trouble.

body had any spunk at all they would rise up in arms and demand that 
the taxpayers of this State give them a university that is a university. 
May God hasten the day when a leader will come who will give us the 
strength to do this. 

ABOUT FOOTBALL: Las fall we hear a lot of fair weather fans 
criticize Coach Rodgers, Mr. Stan.sbury, the team and the school, and for 
what reason — an off year. Can any one show us a football record from 
any school in these United States that has not experienced the same 
thing that we have? We cannot expect o win year afer year without hit- 
ting the rough spots once in a while. Mountaineers get behind your 
teams and help them fight! 

ABOUT MORGANTOWN: It is a damn pity that the University 
was ever located in this hick town. The townspeople, especially the mer- 
chants seem to think that they are doing the students a big favor in let- 
ting them use their old town. We would like to know just haw many 
of those people would be able to live the way they do without the Uni- 
versity. Millions of dollars are spent here every year by the students 
and by the state and who benefits — the residents of Morgantown and yet 
they charge New York prices tor Punkin Center rooms. Paris prices for 
dresses and gowns, and lord only knows how such terrible suits can be 
even given away to anybody — yet the merchants will tell you that bus- 
iness is terrible, that they can't cash your check, that the students im- 
pose upon hrkn and all that sort of hoofey.

MONTICOLA- 




ABOUT THE ATHENAEUM: As a student newspaper this is about 
the worst ever. We can't understand why this university with all the 
funds that have been appropriated for courses in journalism cannot put 
out a paper of a great deal higher calibre. For the past three years the 
journalism department of our "rival college"— Marshall has won the 
fetate prize for having the best college publication— and you should see 
their journalism department — about ten students, an old house for an 
office, and a much smaller student body — yet in one year they interview- 
ed the president of the United States, put on a drive for student organiz- 
ation and government and got it and started the movement to bring na- 
tional fraternities to the school. Why can't we have a paper that will 
really amount to something — that will help us fight for the things we 
need'? Why should there be the close CENSORSHIP that exists at pres- 
ent — it is our paper and it should represent us — not just those things 
that a board of censors wish it to represent. 

ABOUT THE MONTICOLA: This school has been publishing a year- 
hook for years and years and yet the number of copies printed each year 
has been far below the number printed tor schools of equal size. We have 
seen lots of year-books and we have talked to lots of authorities on year- 
books and they say that the Monticola has always been far ahead of the 
average college year-book — nd yet the students do not support it. It 
is for you nd its sole aim is to portray the life and thought of the Uni- 
versity during the calendar year. It costs lots of money to do this but 
when it is once done it is there in black and whie for years and years to 
come. If the fee for the Montiicola were to be included in the tuiti )n 
fee the Publication Board could give the students of West Virginia Uni- 
versity the best year-book in the country at about half the cost of the 
book under the present system. Some day this is going to be brought 
to the attention of the Board of Control — in the meantime think it over 
and see what advantages there arc in hi;; scale production.
