dedication of the Parkersburg High School Football Stadium 

the students of Parkersburg High School displayed their usual enthusiasm and ability when the New Stadium was officially dedicated November 1. 1924. It was the day of the great game between Marietta and Parkersburg and of course the stadium was crowded with Marietta's and our High School Organizations and Students and citizens of both cities.

At the close of the game between the Little Reds and Marietta Junior High, a huge float the replica of a football entered the field, mounted on a truck and drawn by a decorated tractor. Half of the float was decorated in Red and White our colors, and half in the Orange and Black of Marietta. Seats were cut in the front and rear of the football and Miss Mary Louise Dysle, "Miss Marietta," sat in front. Miss Kathleen Hammond, elected " Miss Parkersburq," sat in the rear and received much applauseas she passed the P.H.S. student body. 

The float was drawn all around the field once and then proceeded to the Western side, and stopped. Mr. Piggott, P. H. S. principal, made a short address praisng the structure and the Luncheon Clubs and citizens of Parkersburg for putting it over. He then introduced "Miss Parkersburg," who, on behalf of the citizens and students of Parkersburg accepted the stadium as their property.

 

Mr. Kipel, M. H. S. principal. expressed the pleasure of the Marietta people in being asked to take part in the ceremony. "Miss Marietta" was then presented and she thanked the Parkersburg people and hoped the stadium would benefit the community as much as expected.

 

The Marietta cheerleader presented "Miss Parkersburg" with a large basket of white crythanthemums

with red carnations as centers, and the Parkersburg cheerleader presented "Miss Marietta" with a similar basket of orange crythanthemums with a huge black bow of ribbon on the handle. The two young ladies, assisted by a few other chosen girls left the field and the BIG GAME began.
