DUR PRESIDENTS MESSAGE 

Class of 1948: 

Your senior year has seen the beginning of a planned expansion 
which will enable the University to serve the state more effectively. 
You will see the progress of that expansion year by year. 

As citizens of a democratic state, you have benefited by an 
intellectual freedom denied people under totalitarian regimes. 
What you are, what you do, what you become are better evi- 
dences of the worthwhileness of the University than any words can 
be. We are content to have you as representatives of the Uni- 
versity. The best wishes of the University go with you.

Before a crowd of five thousand people on a sunny Tuesday, Septem- 
ber 20, 1947, in the Mountaineer Stadium, General of the Army Dwight 
D. Eisenhower addressed the Students and Faculty at a Special Convoca- 
tion. 

As the General addressed the assembly a rigid honor guard of 
R.O.T.C. Cadets flanked the speakers' stand, while the faculty dressed 
in their colorful gowns encircled the rostrum. Also at this memorable 
occasion an Honorary Doctors Degree was conferred upon General 
Eisenhower.

S^tucient L^ouncli 



Enjoying a strong post-war revival of student activity, the 1947-48 Student Council 
successfully executed an expanded program of student-controlled functions. The 
ten-member group, which is the legislative board for the student body, proved that 
student government can faithfully and efficiently assume an important role in Uni- 
versity administration. 

In the campus election of May, 1947, Tom Smith, Jr., of Dunbar, was elected presi- 
dent of the student body. Other members of the Student Council were Charles 
Schrader, senior class president; James H. Skidmore, junior class president; William 
Street, sophomore class president; William htawley, junior man representative; Dawn 
Kite, junior woman representative; Andy Reaves, senior man representative; and Pat 
Paul, senior woman representative. Miss Paul was later selected council secretary 
and Street was named treasurer. The freshman class elected Barbara hloke president 
in a special September election. 

After selecting Mary Nichols to represent the University at the Miss West Virginia 
contest in a busy summer session, the council opened the fall term with an extensive 
Freshman Week program. In the usual rush of September business, the council named 
Gene Bailey to fill the vacated Monticola editorship, and appointed competent per- 
sonnel to the convocation, publication, and other Important committees. 

Joe Gurtis was selected as coordinator for the biggest hlomecoming Weekend in 
University history. With more than 30,000 parents, alumni, and other visitors on 
hand, the Student Council put on the year's most spectacular program. "Moun- 
taineer Day," observed for the first time, followed a week later. Arch Moore, who

originated the event, was director. James Skidnnore was director of the council's 
program for the State High School Basketball Tournament. The year's concluding 
major event was Greater West Virginia Weekend, which set new records both in 
attendance and activity. Robert Stultz was chairman. 

In addition, the council adequately dealt with the problems of seating at Moun- 
taineer Field for football and the Field House for basketball, representation at the 
Shendendoah Apple Festival, naming the new recreation center "Mountainlair," and 
electing another Miss West Virginia University. The council also set up a Student 
Rally Committee to conduct thuses, a 28-member Recreation council to plan all- 
campus entertainment, and named four members of the Student Center Activiteis 
Board. 

With an eye toward long- range centralization and expansion of authority, a special 
committee, headed by Herbert Fockler, was established to examine the student 
constitution for possible revision. On the advice of this group, Gordon Billheimer 
headed a new board which drafted a constitution calling for sweeping changes in 
the student government. 

Tom Smith was also prominent in the reactivation of the West Virginia Federation 
of College Students. In the organization's first post-war session in May at the Uni- 
versity, Barbara Hoke was selected secretary of the association for 1948-49. 

As President Stewart has clearly pointed out, the Student Council of 1947-48 has 
demonstrated that the student body is able to take an active and ever- increasing 
part in University functions.

The 1948 Monticola constituted probably the world's 
greatest collection of inaptitude and inexperience. The 
staff of the Monticola floundered through the first se- 
mester, made Innumerable mistakes and managed to 
compile volumes of misinformation and undesirable facts. 
By the second semester, those of the staff who didn't 
flunk out of school were rapidly becoming authorities 
on all of the intricate phases of photography, engrav - 
ing, and printing. At the expense of the student body 
they were also learning to spell and to type. At the 
time the book went to press the remaining handful of 
faithfuls had emerged as veritable geniuses. 

hieading the '48 staff was Editor Gene W. Bailey and 
Business Manager Richard P. Jones who soon became 
convinced that a student's place was in the classroom. 

Displaying both patience and versatility, John Batlas, 
Jr. labored faithfully with the editorial staff and also 
found time to lend assistance to the photography. 

The make- up editors included Doris Walker and 
Juanita Manning assisted by Simon M. Bailey. Virginia

Steele rates honorable mention, being responsible for 
the attractive cover drawing, which reflects the moun- 
taineer spirit, and for her assistance in the art work 
throughout the book. 

David hHeebink and Tom Moorehead were placed in 
the business department and Jack Skinner proved his 
ability as Sports editor. Bob Calvert, Richard Phillips and 



John Batlas, Jr. contributed the pictorial sections. 

College events live long in memory but there is an 
added pleasure in a record. Whether or not this Montic- 
ola reflects the West Virginia University campus as it 
was in the turbulent year of 1948 is not for us to judge. 
It represents our efforts — May you the reader be well 
pleased.

The Agricultural Club, potentially, is one of the largest organizations 
on the campus. Its membership is open to any agriculture student upon 
the payment of annual dues. The Ag Club was founded in 1933 In order 
to stimulate social activities in the College of Agriculture; however, it 
sponsors activities which are of educational value. The Mountaineer 
Egg and Baby Chick show has become an annual affair. 

The zenith of the Club's activities was the "Ag-Mix" which Included a 
barbacue and a square dance. Participation in the "All Ag Picnic" 
attended by the students in hlome Economics, Forestry, and Agriculture, 
usually concludes the program for the year.

The purpose of the Alpha Zeta, agricultural honorary, is the develop- 
ment of the farm, and the farm house through an organization controlled 
by agricultural students. It Is advised by an agricultural faculty and 
stimulated by the bonds of fraternity around a membership chosen after 
an earnest agricultural motive. 

The fraternity of Alpha Zeta was founded at Ohio State University, 
Columbus, Ohio, by Charles W. Burkett on November 4, 1897. John 
F. Cunningham and ten other chapter members established the town- 
shend chapter and since that time the fraternity has progressed. 

The West Virginia chapter was chartered in 1922 and since that time 
has been the only honorary fraternity in agriculture on the campus. 
Consideration is given equally to scholarship, leadership, and character, 
in considering any candidate for membership.

Fi Ba+ar Cappar was founded at West Virginia University on March 13, 1914, for 
the purpose of "boosting" the University. The founders adopted as a badge a small 
leather emblematic of the goal of college life — the sheepskin. It is fastened to the 
lapel with a small piece of brass from the ancient brazen claf, Ihe meaning of which 
is one of the secrets of the organization.

The organization "Virginian," a literary club composed of young men of high scho- 
lastc standing, was the first step in the establishing of West Virginia Alpha of Phi Delta 
Theta fraternity on this campus. 

A bond of friendship grew up among the members of the literary society, and in the 
fall of 1919 Phi Delta Lambda was organized as a local Greek letter fraternity. There 
were nine charter members. "Phi Delta" was taken from the name of the national or- 
ganization and "Lambda" added because Phi Delta Lambda was the eleventh fraternity 
to be recognized on the campus. 

Phi Delta Theta was founded at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, December 26, 1848. 
Other members of the "Triad" are Sigma Chi and Beta Theta Pi. 

Argent and azure are the fraternity's colors and its flower is the white carnation. 

The Miami Triad Formal, the Pledge Pan-hellenic and weekly parties were included in 
the "Phi Dell- Social Calendar." 

Elective officers for this year were: President, James Salyer; Reporter, Ralph Stear; 
Secretary, V^alter Kehm; Treasurer, Roy Franklin.

Because of a split in the Columbian Literary Society in 1889, the Athenian Literary Society was 
formed by the dissenting group. These men became interested in Phi Kappa Psi and petitioned its 
national officers for a chapter. 

In order to become a fraternity, the petitioning group had to get permission from the adminis-

At the close of the first World War, some students of West Virginia University 
banded together to form Tau Delta Theta, a local fraternity. As the years progressed 
the chapter grew and prospered until it was one of the strongest fraternities on the 
campus. After several years of petitioning they were finally admitted to the national 
circle as Alpha Kappa of Alpha Sigma Phi in October of 1931. Shortly thereafter, 
however, due to the depression the chapter went inactive. 

In the summer of 1946 Alpha Sigma Phi and Alpha Kappa Pi (another national fra- 
ternity) merged, putting Alpha Sigma Phi in the top ten of national fraternities. The 
name of Alpha Sigma Phi was adopted because of the hundred years of illustrous his- 
tory behind it. In the fall of 1946 a group of former Alpha Kappa Pi's got together and 
with the aid of alumni of the old chapter reactivated Alpha Kappa chapter. In the 
fall of 1947 the chapter was firmly established and has been growing steadily ever 
since.

RESUME DF FDDTBALL SEASON 



The 1947 Mountaineers gave the fans an interesting 
and colorful season of football. There was a lot of good 
material on hand, and Coach Bill Kern and his staff 
welded it into what was recognized as one of the better 
teanns in the East. The Gold and Blue won six and lost 
four over a ten game schedule, and rolled up 246 points 
to 84 for their opponents. 

The team looked good both offensively and de- 
fensively, and had they won more games, some of the 
members would have received the national recognition 
they deserved for their individual play. 



This was the final season at the University for Leo 
Benjamin, Bob Bom, Gene Corum, Charlie HHarris, Ed 
KulakowskI, Fred Morecraft, Chuck Schrader and Chet 
Spelock. They all played good ball, and their services will 
be sorely missed next year. 

Coach Kern submitted his resignation during the last 
week of the season, and as a fitting climax to his career 
at West Virginia University, the team gave him a victory 
over the Pitt Panthers. The game was played at the 
Panthers lair in Pittsburgh, and this time, for a change, 
it was Pitts turn to say, "wait till next year." 








It was a Qood year, buf next year should be even 
better. 

West Virginia, 59; Ot+erbein, 

The first game of the season was a home appearance 
against Otterbein. Just a year before, the Mountaineers 
had had difficulty in downing the lads from Ohio by a 
13-7 count, but the story of this year's encounter was 
considerably different. West Virginia rolled to nine 
touchdowns with Zinaich, Walthall and Becca each scor- 
ing twice and Bumgardner, Cox and Morton once. Clare 
Wilson place kicked three extra points and Dick hloffman 
added two more. The team looked good In all depart- 
ments of the game, and the local fans left Mountaineer 
field with a feeling of satisfaction. 

West Virginia, 35; Washington and Lee, 6 

The teams met in their traditional battle on Charleston's 
Laidley Field. The temperature was hovering around 85 
degrees, and as far as Mountaineer fans were concerned, 
the team was as hot as the weather. At the intermission, 
the Gold and Blue had only a meager 7-0 lead, by virtue 
of a 53-yard run by Tommy Keane, but in the second 
half the score mounted to a much wider margin. A pass 
from Keane to hfuntz produced touchdown number two, 
and another pass, Walthall to Richmond, was good for 
number three. Harris recovered a fumble on the W. and 
L. 1 3 to set up the next touchdown, with Malyk taking 
the ball over on a plunge. Then with only fifteen seconds 
to go, Combs passed to end Frank Reno who went all 
the way, behind good blocking. West Virginia also made 
good on all extra point attempts. W. and L. was held 
to a lone touchdown. 

West Virginia, 60; Waynesburg, 7 

West Virginia scored nine touchdowns against the 
Yellow Jackets, and In doing so, gave an impressive 



demonstration of whot could be done with the "T" 
formation offense. Coach Bill Kern let his reserves see 
plenty of action and against them, Waynesburg was able 
to push over one touchdown. Bumgardner, Zinaich, 
Devonshire, Cox, Schrader, Bonflll, Richmond, Becca 
and Fought each contributed a touchdown to Mountain- 
eer cause. Dick Hoffman added four extra points by 
placement and Clare Wilson two. 

West Virginia, 40; New York University, 

The steam roller effect continued against the Vollets 
In New York City. Keane heaved to Bumgardner who 
then ran 36 yards for the first score. Walthall went 45 
yards for the second. Then Bumgardner went 65 yards 
in two plays to score the third. After a 44-yard run by 
Becca and a pass from Combs to Huntz, good to the 5, 
Malyk crashed over for another. Pass plays Combs to 
Huntz and Becca to Bonflli set things up for the last 
touchdown. From the 5, Bonfili went around end to pay 
dirt. Hoffman converted 4 out of 6 times. 

West Virginia, 14; Penn State, 21 

This was probably one of the most outstanding games 
ever played by a Mountaineer eleven. State had the 
depth and power, and won the game; but they only won 
it by one touchdown, and the grit and determination dis- 
played by West Virginia, made them a team to be proud 
of. The Lions scored the first time they had the ball, when 
after a sustained drive, Rogel went over from the one. 
West Virginia came right back when two pass inter- 
ference rulings gave them the ball on the Penn State 
four yard line. Pete Zinaich went over, and Dick Hoffman 
came in to kick the extra point which tied the score. Then 
the Mountaineers went out in front on a pass from Combs 
to Huntz, good for another touchdown. Hoffman again 
converted. Penn State tied the count again late in the 




DUDLEY DeGROOT and ROBERT A. TITCHENAL 




fa^Lj__Lii.i'_ 




second period on a plunge by Clarence Gorlnski, and 
the half ended with the score 14-14. In the second half, 
West Virginia was on the defensive most of the time, 
and although they made two magnificent goal line stands, 
Penn State would not be denied. They scored the winning 
touchdown on a pass from Ellwood Petchel to Wallace 
Triplett who took the ball on the West Virginia 26 and 
ran the rest of the way to score. Penn State finished 
their season unbeaten and untied, and were invited to 
play in the Cotton Bowl at Dallas, Texas on New Year's 
Day. 

West Virginia, 0; Maryland, 27 

The Terrapins handed West Virginia a disheartening 
defeat, before a homecoming crowd at College Park. 



It was the first time a Maryland eleven had defeated 
West Virginia and it was their game all the way. They 
scored twice in the first and twice in the final periods. 
Gambino, their great back led the attack with three 
touchdowns, and Wingate contributed another. Six of the 
Kernmen suffered injuries, and it was thought at the 
time that Keane would be out for the remainder of the 
season. 

West Virginia, 6; Kentucky, 15 

A record crowd of approximately 26,500 jammed 
Mountaineer Field to see this one. West Virginia led 
II to 7 in the first downs, and dominated much of the 
play, but Kentucky came out on the long end of the 
score. They relied on the kicking of George Blanda to 








keep the Mountaineers backed up, and played for a 
break. The break came when they recovered a fumble on 
the West Virginia 25, and then ran and passed their way 
to a score. Their second touchdown came on a long run 
by Jim hlowe who wormed his way over the muddy field 
to cross the goal line standing up. Two more points 
were added to the Kentucky total by virtue of a blocked 
punt, which went out through the end zone for an auto- 
matic safety. The West Virginia touchdown came as a 
result of a 50 yard drive. Malyk bulled his way over from 
the two yard line for the score. 

West Virginia, 0; Virginia, 6 

This was the homecoming game, and one to be re- 
membered. It was a wet day, and the Mountaineers and 
Cavaliers struggled In the mud without scoring, until 
late in the game. Virginia marched from the West Vir- 
ginia 43 to chalk up the only score of the game. Their 
star back, Srover Jones did most of the ball carrying 
In this drive, and finally went over on a line plunge. 
On the following kick-off West Virginia got going, but 
time was running out. Tom Keane, who was still suffering 
from Injuries received in the Maryland game, came off 
the bench to heave some desperation passes. From the 
43 he completed one to Jimmy Walthall on the Virginia 
25, and Walthall made it to the 18. Two passes failed, 
and on the next one, what looked like a touchdown toss 
fell incomplete when hluntz the intended receiver, ran 
into the goal post. Another pass was incomplete and 
Virginia took over. hHowever, they fumbled and West 
Virginia recovered. There was still a chance for the 
Mountaineers, but two more Keane passes just failed to 
connect, and the game ended. 

V^est Virginia, 21; Temple, 

The Gold and Blue ended their losing streak by de- 
feating the Temple Owls, in the last home game of the 
1947 season. Phil Slosburg, an outstanding back for the 
visitors, put on a fine exhibition of all-round play, but 
West Virginia was in command of the situation all after- 
noon. Late in the first quarter. Bob Fought Intercepted 
a pass on the Temple 24. From that point Rex Bum- 
gardner carried six straight times, going over from the 



one-foot line. . In the second period Walt Malyk carried 
from midfleld to the 24, and then took a pass from Tom 
Keane to go over standing up. The last touchdown was 
made on a plunge by Malyk. A pass interference had 
given the Mountaineers the ball on the Temple four, and 
he went over from that point. Dick Hoffman made good 
on all three extra point attempts. 

West Virginia, 17; Pittsburg, 2 

After nineteen long years, the once mighty Panthers 
were defeated by West Virginia, and it was a cold day 
In Pittsburgh In more ways than one. Pitt was outclassed 
but fought hard, even though there was little doubt as 
to the final outcome of the game. Keane sneaked over 
from the one yard line for the first touchdown, and 
hloffman kicked the extra point. In the second quarter 
Gene Corum blocked a punt and covered the ball on 
the Pitt five-yard line. After three running plays lost five 
yards, hloffman came in and booted a field goal. The 
Mountaineers had to score their last touchdown twice. A 
touchdown pass from Keane to Richmond was called 
back because of a backfield in motion penalty, but on the 
next play Keane again threw one into the end zone where 
Smodic deflected the ball into the hands of Bernie hluntz. 
hloffman's kick was good for another extra point. Pitt got 
their two points on the last play of the game when a 
blocked punt gave them a safety. The We.st Virginia 
players carried Coach Bill Kern off the field on their 
shoulders, the goal posts were torn down, and everyone 
was happy — that Is everyone from West Virginia.

RESUME DF BASKETBALL SEASON 



West Virginia University's cagers wound up 
another brilliant season under the tutelage of 
Coach Lee Patton. With victory over Pitt, the 
final game of the season, the Mountaineers could 
point to seventeen wins in twenty times, with 



ten of the victories in succession. Finishing the 
third straight season of home-game sweeps, they 
counted forty-three successive home wins.

the Falcon's home floor. It was the Moun- 
taineers' game all the way with the reserves see- 
ing plenty of action. At the end of the game 
the scoreboard read: West Virginia 80, Fairmont 
55. 

The second game, against Briqham Young, was 
a real battle in the first half; but the Mountaineers 
started clicking in the second half and triumphed 
with a 68-5 I win. 

One of the most exciting games of the season 
came when West Virginia tallied 68 points to 
North Carolina State's 64. A battle between 
two of the best teams in the country, it was any- 
body's game till the final moments of play. 

Fairmont's boys held West Virginia to a slim 
two point lead of 24-22 at the half, but the 
second portion of the game found the Moun- 
taineers as hot as a ball of fire and the final out- 
come was a comfortable West Virginia 68, Fair- 
mont 40. 

The Washington and Lee game was a com-

parltively easy 78 to 35 win, but it was also a 
costly one. A sprained ankle caused Fred Schaus 
to be removed from the game, but he looped in 
2 I points before his accident in the second half. 

The Mountaineers' winning streak came to an 
end at Madison Square Garden, when Manhat- 
tan topped our team 58 to 53. 

It was a bare win when the cagers travelled

to Buffalo to play Niagara. The final score was

Next Penn State gained a 50-46 verdict over 
the Pattonmen. 

The West Virginia men were back in the win 
column when they defeated Bethany 54-42, but 
the score indicated that they were still below par. 

It was a surprise when Washington and Jeffer- 
son came up with a 52-41 win after the Moun- 
taineers had twice defeated them by large 
margins the previous season. 

Whatever troubled the players in the losing 
games was absent when the Pattonmen came 
back with an impressive 88-42 win over Virginia 
Military Institute. 

Next the Mountaineers cancelled their former 



loss by a good win over Penn State with the 
score 60-38. Eddie Sterling, playing his second 
game for the Pattonmen, made an impressive 
showing in this game. 

Another close 38-37 victory came when the 
West Virginia men played Navy at Annapolis. 
Schaus suffered a broken finger in this one. 

The next game was at Philadelphia where the 
finishing score read: West Virginia 81, Temple 
75. 

Back on home ground, the Pattonmen met 
Washington Jefferson with the intention of mak- 
ing up for the previous loss. They did, and the 
score was 73-52. 

The next three games were pleasant victories 
with the scores being: West Virginia 8 I , Geneva

When Bradley Tech, one of the outstanding 
teams of the nation, came to Morgantown to 
battle with Patton's crew a record crowd of 7,200 
spectators went wild as the Mountaineers downed 
Bradley with an 85-74 score. 

Temple suffered another defeat, 71-61, with 
Eddie Beach leading the home team with 22 
points to his credit. 

To finish the season, the Mountaineers tallied 
52 points to Pitt's 36. This game marked the 
last game of their college career for Leiand Byrd, 
Dave Wilson, and Bob Carroll.

Art Donata and Okey Ryan have been the pitching

TRACK 



ARTHUR N. SMITH 




The West Virginia University Track Team under the export 
coaching of Art Smith is definitely coming into its own after a 
layoff during the war years. 

The track learn got off to a good start In the 1948 season by 
rolling up an Impressive score of 70-52 over Western Reserve at 
Cleveland. Going from the North to the South the thin dads next 
ran across Washington and Lee in Virginia. Although the Gold 
and Blue won 69-62 it was anybody's meet until the last event. 
The two teams were about tied wUh the victory going to the 
team with the best javelin thrower. Bernle Huntz was called upon 
to represent W.V.U., and he came through with the winning toss 
of 1 79 feet 2 inches to win the event. This made him high point 
man of the meet with three first places, having won the shot put 
and the discus. Jack Morton took second place honors with two 
firsts In the 220 and 440 yard dashes. 

The Mountaineers first home meet was with Ohio University on 
Mother's Day, and for the occasion rolled up a 76'/2-45'/2 victory. 
The next week ihe thin clad met with their only defeat at the 
hands of Syracuse and Rutgers. The Mountaineers were out- 
classed In this meet due to the fact that only six men took the 
trip. Huntz again led the team with first In the shot put and 
discus. Bill Pittman took second p!ace honors In both the 100 and 
220 yard dashes. 

The last track meet of the season was with Temple. During 
this meet at Morgantown a new field record In the high jump was 
m^de by Johnson of Temple. The record now stands at 6 feet 
4% inches. The final score was the Mountaineers 54 5/6, Temple 
22 I /6. 

At the c!ose of the season three men were invited to represent 
West Virginia in the I.C. 4-A meet at Harvard. They were Jack 
Mor,on, Bill Pittman, and Bernle Huntz.

ELEC is a glum little fellow when the switch is off. 

BUT you smile when you flip that switch on and have one of the most dependable, 

efficient and economical servants doing many chores for you in your home. 

ELEC and the business-managed electric company he works for are proud that they 

can give you unparalled service for so little money in your home, office or business.

BIG BUSINESS! 
WORDS TO PRIZE. NOT DESPISE! 



Great economic delusions and superstitions 
hover around those oft-despised words: "Big 
Business." Isn't it most peculiar that thousands 
of intelligent users of automobile, refrigerator, 
radio, telephone, gas, electricity and a thousand 
other incidentals of American life apparently 
never stop to think that Big Business is responsible 
for great economical advances in our standard 
of living, whose benefits are now enjoyed in the 
humblest home but were not available in palaces 
of old. Without Big Business and its productive 
enterprise, where would we find jobs, wages, 
taxes, national budgets, security?

Still Growing 



AND HAPPY ABOUT IT

»^^OR many years now we've been 
stretching to our full height to meet the public's 
demands for adequate electric power. Little by 
little we've been growing. Right now we've facing 
our largest expansion program and we're happy 
about it, for it will mean, just a few years hence, 
the finest electric generating and distributing 
system that man can plan and money can build. 
And it's all for the public's use and benefit. 

A good way to measure the growth 
of a man and of an industry is by accomplishment. 
We hope our growth inspires your confidence and 
merits your continuing friendship.
