People, Places & Things By Frederick D, Long IIISTORY OF HINTON IIIGH SCHOOL PART XXI By Frederick D. Long The first Dart was published December 21, 1911. Inez M. Brown and Carrie Vermillion edited this book, which came out each month. They were Editors in Chief chosen from each of the two Literary socie- ties; Parthenian and Delphian respectively. Others on the first Dart staff were Mary Mea- dows, Eugene Briers, Lucile Settle, Paul Heflin, Lula Early, Everett Smith, Ethel Litsinger and Howard Templeton. Miss Inez Brown wrote in the first issue "This is the first attempt that has been made to puLush a paper in this school and we feel that our position is a precarious as well as respons- ible one. We shall endeavor to make each copy better than the one preceding." The "paper" was a booklet of 18 pages. Six pages were devoted to ads. Of the fifty-four ads in the first issue only three businesses exist today----The ltinton Insurance Agency, The Nat tonal Bank of Summers and the First National Bank, Some of the old ads should bring back memories of the past to many people. The Citizens Bank of Hinton; with, at that time, over $100,000 in deposits• The Wm Plumley, Jr., store that stood where the Summers bank is. The Bigony ltospital, that stood where the Hinton At'ea Elementary School is. The Hinton Hospital that stood Hinton bank is. The Busy Bee Restaurant. Sum- mers Meat Market, Hotel Me- ( 'reery, Rose's. drug store, Par- kers Big Store on 301-368 Sum- mers Street and 119 Third Avenue• Pyles Fuel Company at 318 Summers St., S. Miekle & Brother, "Soft Drinks, all kinds," at 213 Third Av. The Lowe Furniture Co. "under- takers and embalmers phone 22 or 78." The J. P. Lilly and Co., "dealers in wagons, hacks, plows, home hay and buck- wheat." M. D. Tompkies and Sons, located at the Avis R. R. crossing. Moorefield & Baylor on Second Avenue in the Elk's Building, "Makers of high grade clothes for ladies and men. Ladies suits $15.00 and up, mens $15.00, and up." Starting a High School paper was the brain child of the City Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Howard F. Fleshman. Mr. Fl'eshman had been superin- tendend of City schools from 1901 to 1904 and re-appointed for the school term beginning September 1911. The previous year Mr. Flesh- man graduated from W. Va. University• He had been the business manager of the Univ- ersities paper, the Athaneum, that year. When he returned to Hinton he helped organize the two Literary societies from which he picked the editorial staff for the 1911-12 Dart. The Dart was issued monthly during the school year. The price for the first issue was ten cents after that a single copy was five cents and twenty-five cents for the year if paid in advance. They had five issues the first year. The last issue was a yearbook of 46 pages. Miss Brown wrote in that issue: "This being the first paper ever published in the High School. we have had many things to contend with, which our successors will escape. Th- eir work should be a vast improvement over ours, for they will have a good outline, which was entirely lacking to US" Each issue had a section devoted to school athletics, what the literary societies had been doing, local events, jokes and letters. The following is a letter in issue number two: "Dear Miss, you writ me about whipping my sun. I hereby give you permission to beat him anytime it ts neces- sary to lerm him lessons. He is Studded Tires The West Virginia Depart- m5,'ht of Highways reminds motorists that studded snow tires are permissible on state highways November tst through April 15th. Motorists are advised to use studded tires only when nec- essary to prevent the severe pavement surfaces. During periods of prolonged freezing temperatures, studded tires provide only minimal pro- tection on ice- covered road- ways. Tire chains applied to conventional snow tires afford a greater degree'of safety during such weather condit- wear which they inflict on ions.

I want him to get it and don't pay no attenshun to what his father says. I'II handle him." One of the articles, in the first issue, gave instructions on how to drive a car. There were only about 20 automobiles in Hinton at that time. I hope you enjoy reading it. The first thing necessary is to turn the switch key on the batteries. This done you move the little levers on the guide wheel, giving it the amount of electricity and gasoline needed in order to crank the machine up. The machine having been cranked, you turn the switch key off of the batteries and push the low gear on. This starts the machine. After it gets started well, push the high gear pedal. This throws it into high gear. This makes the machine run more smoothly and the engine does less work. Now suppose you are ready to climb a hill. If the hill is not very steep, by giving the mach- ine more gasoline at the bottom of the hill it will sometimes climb the hill in high gear. But, if the hill is very steep you will find it necessary after you have gone several yards, to push the low gear pedal. With the aid of this and plenty of gasoline it climbs the steepest of hills. When you start down the hill you put it in low gear, shut off all the gasoline, and use the foot brake. It is is a very steep hill you will find it necessary to use the hand brake also. Now you are ready to make the turn. Put the machine in low gear, shut off nearly all of the gasoline, and run the mach- ine in close to the curb, before making the turn; Now, turn the guide wheel slowly around, all the time pushing the low gear, and pull the machine up to the curb on the opposite side of the street. This done you reverse the low gear brake, and quickly revolve the guide wheel. This turns the machine around. After the machine is well Bluegrass Market Inc.

The next school papert was known as "The Foolscap",- it was published as a weekly supplement to the Hinton Daily News till in 1924 when the school started a monthly edit- ion call The Orange and Black. The name of the school paper chatlged again in 1941 to the tlinton Hi-Times. The Dart continues to be the school yearbook. More next week T II 1'] 1) ,\\; 1, T I apologize for this 12 Thurs.
