Chittum- In dedicating our annual to Mrs. Chittum, we are merely acknowledging — not repaying — our debt of gratitude and appreciation to a great friend and teacher, whom we shall long remember with love and respect. THE 1945 HISTORY OF ALEXANDER PARK Some people have referred to Alexander Park as the mushroom city. Indeed the erection of 4, (XX) housing units in a matter of a few weeks to accommodate 20,000 residents was a modern industrial miracle which caused even the staid residents of Portsmouth to open their mouths in astonishment. To build such a city in such short time and to erect stores, offices, and schools, install public utilities, build roads and pavements, and to provide transportation was no small undertaking. The beginning of a school system was, of course, one of the first problems tackled by the E ' ederal Housing Authority, and through Norfolk County Superintendent, H. I. W illett, no tiuie was lost in securing the services of a youthful and energetic principal. W. A. Early, then principal at Madison Heights School in Amherst County, was chosen because of his splendid record and varied experience. Thus it was that Mr. Early moved to the park in December 1942, barely two months after the first houses were occupied, to plan for the opening of schools in January. The growth of the school system has been phenomenal. From 342 pupils and 16 teachers the first day to 4,000 pupils and 116 teachers in less than two years is a record that probably no school in the United States, outside of Alexander Park, can boast. And the school enroll- ment has by no means yet reached its peak! Predictions a re that another year will see an enrollment of over 4,500 pupils. The first months of school in the park have been graphically described by the original pupils and teachers. At first, sixteen houses on Cavalier Boulevard were used, with one grade being assigned to one or two houses. There was no hard surfacing and mud was an eternal problem, especially during the first spring, the weather of which turned out to be one of record precipitation. Mr. Early and manj ' of the teachers wore boots and Sergeant Walter P. Thorne acted as a sort of conveyor belt to lift the smaller pupils across the street on rainy days. The nearest telephone was over a half mile distant. One of the three senior pupils that year. Watt Seawell, went up and down the street in front of the building to ring a big hand bell for change of classes. Janitorial service, too, was quite a problem, since fire had to be maintained in each separate building, but four colored men lent the schools by the housing office did a pretty good job keeping everyone warm. The head custodian, James Sheaffer, was a very lovable character whom teachers and pupils alike respected. He had a degree from a large Southern University and was quite a versatile person who frequently was asked to help with singing and even to pray in the house assemblies. There was no place large enough for all of the pupils to meet in a body and it was necessary at times to call all the j)upils together on the lawn just outside the school office. In those days, just as now to a lesser extent, the life of the communitj ' revolved around the schools. Sunday school and church were held regularly in the school houses. Later when a telephone was installed, citizens used it to order fuel, call a doctor, and to send personal messages. The schools, too, served as an information center, where people came to find directions from a big wall map which hung in the principal’s office, and often times citizens stopped by to pay personal calls to the teaching and office staff. Today the Alexander Park School System consists of a large permanent structure housing the high school and the six other buildings located conveniently throughout the Park, five of which are elementary schools and one a nursery. Nearly all the schools participate in a milk program and the high school has a large cafeteria. Health and attendance officers isit the schools frequently and various health clinics arc available to those who need them. The high school is offering courses in Electricity and Machines, Pre-flight, Distributive Education, Nursing, Commerce, and conducts a Summer School. The really remarkable feature of the school is that in two years and a half, a student body representing thirty-seven states has been unified and welded together into a smooth- functioning school set-up. The teachers represent eighteen states. F ' urthermore, the schools have acquired buildings, equipment, and supplies which it usually takes a generation to secure. That the pupils of the Park system have had many broadening experiences in their school relationships is not denied, and it certainly is no overstatement to say that these pupils have formed many worthwhile friendships which will last long after Alexander Park has been dismantled.

To improve the appearance of our school. 3. To encourage better attendance. 4. To imjjrove our school newspaper. 5. To encourage clubs and club membership. Regular meetings are held the first and third Wednesday of each month at which time problems of the school are discussed and solutions proposed.

It’s the Distributors Club, students of Alexander Park’s first class in Retail Training, and Distributive Education. DC members are honored seniors, and possible future tycoons in the world of busi- ness. Distributors Club provided a means of promoting friendship and cooperation among the students, faculty and retail institutions. Because it is a member of Distributors Clubs of Virginia, it forms a link in the chain of clubs and sends a delegate to the State Convention each year. Social activities combine with con- structive work to make the club an asset to the department and the school. DC members play as hard as they work — believe in that old maxim about all work and no play making a dull boy.

The original membership was selected by the Student Council, however, others who were interested in the work joined voluntarily. The purpose of this committee is to keep the large bulletin board in the center hall decorated. Ve felt that all the displays should be educational as well as decorative. Since displays more than a week old lose their attraction, we have tried to make a change every week. Navy Day, Hallowe’en, National Iflection, Thanksgiving, Red Cross Drive, T. B. Drive, Christmas, Infantile Paralysis Drive, X’alentine’s Day and Easter all afforded us ideas for our projects. Although we spent many lunirs of hard labor in decorating our board, when each was ffnished we knew it had been well worth our effort. Eor the pleasure and success of the year, we owe much to our chairman. Betty Tyler, whose guidance and faithfulness kept us all inspired.

PINAFORE” ACT I Her Majesty ' s Ship, Pinafore, is anchored in the liorhor at Portsmouth, England. The sailors are busy scrubbing the decks for the expected arrival of Sir Joseph Porter, “ruler of the Queen’s Navy.” Little Buttercup, a bumboat woman who is by no means as small as her name would imply, comes aboard with a stock of “snuff and tohaccy and excellent jackv,” not to mention “excellent peppermint drops.” It transpires that a handsome young sailor, Ralph, is in love with the Cai tain’s daughter, Josephine. She, however, is to be betrothed to Sir Joseph Porter, who duly arrives attended by “his sisters and his cousins and his aunts.” In the meantime, Ralph plans to elope with Josephine, the crew assisting. The plot is ox erheard by I tick I teadeye, a lugubrious member of the crew, who cannot keep a secret. ACT 11 .■ fter Captain Corcoran sings a serenade to the moon. Little Buttercup comes to him and reveals her affection. He tells her that beaiise of his rank he can onlv be her friend, luit she hints darkly that a change is in store for him, saying that “things arc seldom what they seem.” Sir Joseph returns, complaining that Josephine does not favor his suit, dhe Cai)tain comforts him by averring’ that she is awed by his lofty station and suggests that he plead his cause on the ground that love levels all rank. Still Josephine does not respond, for her heart is .set upon Ralph. Dick Deadeye reveals the cloi)cment jilan, and he and the Cai)tain lie in wait for the crew, “Carefully on tip-toe stealing.” The elopers are captured, and the Captain is so exasperated that he swears, using a “big, big D” which is overheard by Sir Joseph Porter. For this serious breach of morals, a horrible example of depravity before the whole crew, the Captain is ordered to his cabin. Ralph is ordered to the dungeon cell in chains. Atfairs are interrupted by Little Buttercup, who discloses her secret, telling how the Captain and Ralph had been accidentally exchanged while they were both babies. Whereupon, Sir Joseph sends for Raljih and makes him Captain, and at the same time reduced Corcoran to Ralph’s former humble grade of “able scamau.” Now, since it is out of the question for one of Sir Joseph’s exalted station to marry the daughter of a mere seaman, his Lordshi]) nobly consents to the marriage of Ralph and Josephine. The erstwhile Captain consoles himself with Little Buttercup.

THE 1945 A SENIOR REMINISCES On January 4, 1943, my mother received a handbill saying, “Send your child to school.” The next day I went down to 620 Cavalier Boulevard to register. This was the beginning of our great school in Alexander I’ark. At the end of the first week, the registration showed 342 pupils and 14 teachers. Our school was not in the present building you now see, it was. as some of you will remember, in a group of houses in the 600 block of Cavalier Boulevard. First there was no separation of grades. However, after a few weeks there was such an increase of lower grade students that they had to move the high school across the street. They say that “Necessity is the Mother of Invention,” and it surely is! You see, there was no way of installing an electric bell system, so we did the next best thing. At the end of every period. Watt Seawell walked up and down the street ringing a “Cow Bell” to let the teachers and students know that it was time to leave. Ah, yes, that was a joyful year! We were a hardy lot running through the snow, sleet, rain and mud to change classes. And woe was the pupil that came too early, for he was the unlucky one who went out in the rain and snow to get coal to warm the room for the rest of us. One morning, it was raining, and when it rains in Virginia — well, here we were, the merry three, on our grumbling way to school, when all of a sudden we saw a pitiful sight. There was a sch(X)lmate of ours stuck in the mud — and I mean STUCK!!! One foot was in up to the knee. Pull! Heave! Ho! Ah, it finally came out, but minus the shoe. Since shoes are rationed, down we went in the mud looking for it. Onward to school ! We arrived bright and early — 9 :30. Oh, yes, we got excused. For you see, dear students, those were the kind of excuses that were legitimate in those days. (Lucky us!) How well that first winter sticks in my mind ! To learn how to regulate those stoves took almost until Spring. At first, the house was always buried in soot. It got to such a condition, that we started calling it “Little Pittsburgh.” Then we passed through the time which my family called “The ice age.” The stove just refused to heat. How about the night when your father was on night shift? You lay curled up in bed and wondered what was going to happen next. You looked at the inky black mess outside I there were no street lights then). Then you turned and tried to penetrate the pitch blackness of your romn. All of a sudden, a sound ! You lie in bed and shiver a while, until you hear your mother’s shaky voice, “Go see who is in the kitchen !” You feel for the flashlight on the dresser and then creep into the living room and then the kitchen to find the cause of the noise. But it is nothing. In a daze, you fall on your pillow and go to sleep. Ah, yes, those were the days when Mounted Police roamed the wilds of the “Park.” Some of them guarded the entrance to the Park and also the entrance to the school block. Boy, they impressed me ! I wasn’t the only one impressed, though, they had a regular following. Small boys were tagging along everywhere. They were pretty smart also. A group of us found that out after a few futile attempts to play “hooky.” That winter, a group of students from the Senior and Juni or Homerooms organized the Victory Co-eds. This group sponsored many dances and parties to which the high school pupils were invited. (Continued on page 70) 1. School is out! 2. Is that so, W’hitie? 3. W’oikiiig goils? 4. Cioiiig our way? 5.

London Bridge. 17. Sisters. 18. Pals. THE 1945 The teachers had it pretty rough for awhile also. They had to hike to the school from the George Washington Highway in all the rain, snow and mud. Believe me, it was no fun ! However, most of them were young and had not been teaching very long. It was no picnic to have to learn the ropes in a newly organized school. Mr. Early, our efficient and likeable principal, had his worries too. He had the job of placing the new students where they belonged. Some who did not have their credits with them had to be placed temporarily and then he changed them around when their credits came. He had to stand the griping of some of the students who had to be put back because they came from a 12 grade system. That, my dear readers, is a complete picture of Alexander Park in its first winter. But the days were not to be dark forever. Oh, no ! Spring came and with it the “ice chewing.” How many teachers and pupils remember that year? During the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the burning of Rome, the ice chewing went on and on. It went on with increasing vivaciousness. Mrs. Buchanan remembers, so does Mrs. Amos and Mrs. Moore. Where did this ice come from — the frigidaires in the kitchen of the house “of learning”? All the comforts of home ! That year teachers kept coming and going and the school kept growing and growing. Then came graduation ! Three of Alexander Park’s students graduated (that’s all there were in the graduation class). They officially received their diplomas from their former high schools because our school was not old enough to be considered an accredited school. The exercises were held at Semmes Place. By this time the school had increased to 1300 pupils and 46 teachers. That spring was much better for the residents of the Park. The government built recreation centers for us. Civic Leagues were formed for the different sec- tions of the Park, and things started moving around the Park. The younger people had recreational facilities, and the older people had their clubs and gatherings to attend. Everyone was kept busy and happy. Early that spring exciting news got around. Little Star Stores were going to open soon. Almost over night, it seemed, that rumor came true. The opening day was a big event. People crowded into the store like a group of starving Armenians. The day was a typical Eastern ’irginia day. Hot and sticky! Imagine a store crowded to capacity with still more crowding in. People bought and some fainted ; still more folks came. The only fault found with the weather that spring was in the wind. You see, there was no grass and trees planted, the place looked like a miniature Sahara. So, when the wind blew, it blew dust. Nice dry dust to chew in your mouth or grind in your teeth. Before one went into another’s home, they shook themselves good. The stove was a minor detail in the spring and summer. To make a fire or not to make it ; that was the question. If you made it, you would suffocate for the rest of the day. If you didn’t make it, you would have to dive into a nice cold bath, or, what would be worse, go without one because you lacked the courage to do the latter. Or perhaps you enjoyed doing the dishes with ice cold water. That summer the government built us a beautiful school on McClean Street. It was beautiful I ! ! I still remember the first time I viewed the building. A couple of friends called for me and we all went down to have a look. “That’s all very nice,” I said, “but where is the rest of it, the other two stories, I mean?” Well, September came, and for the second time I went to register. Only this lime it was a little different from the other. (Continued on page 72) N A T I 0 N A 1. lUisiness Mgr. 2. Cute? 3. Posed — definitely! 4. Patrolman. 5. Bathing heaiity. 6. “Coach.” 7.

The grade school was at one end of the building and the high school was at the other. Al- though the school was only one story high, it was very long. It housed the lower and upper grades quite comfortably. We had one senior class, two junior classes, three sophomore classes and four freshman classes. The days went by very nicely, but the only thing that some of us couldn’t get accustomed to was the electric bell. We really got going fast around here. Right at the beginning, we organized a football team, then came a girls’ and boys’ basket ball team, then baseball. We played many games, and for a newly organized team we did okay. Then came th.e newspaper. Boy, we were going places ! Then Miss Hundley organized a Latin Club. When our new orchestra played the school song, " Onward Nationals,” many of us felt a never to be forgotten thrill. Next the Glee Club, with Airs. Aloon at its helm, started to supply us with many entertaining chapel programs. Air. Seawall, who teaches science and mathematics, organized a Science Club. Everyone who had a good average and who was in any of his classes had the privilege of joining. They sponsored many parties and dances to which the student body was invited to attend. Then Air. Early and Aliss Hundley organized a branch of the Beta Club here. Besides having a high average, one had to have the personal approval from every one of his teachers. Some students just walked around and complained, because they simply wouldn ' t take part in any of the school activities. “In my school they would do it like this,” or “Why do we have to do this?” Those were the only words of en- couragement that the school leaders got from certain people. But on we marched ! Why, towards the end of the year, they were even talking of the possibility of having a lunch room. Imagine ! The enrollment of the school by this time had increased to 2,988 pupils and 83 teachers. That summer everyone got a big surprise — the United States Government planted grass. It was refreshing to the eyes after all the brown coloring all winter. They also sent large tractors to plow up the land behind the houses in crder that we could plant our Wctory gardens. That summer was not so bad, all one had to do was to hop a bus, then a ferr}-, then a trolley and zing ! ! ! They were at Ocean A’iew or A ' irginia Beach. September dawned again (as it will dawn for a thousand years hence) and back to school we went. But back to a school with many improvements. Back to a lunch room ! xA.lso, we had a new x ssistant Principal, Air. L. W. Anderson. Air. Anderson came to us from Robersonville, X. C., and has contributed much to the efficient organization of our school this session. Several new courses were taught. Distributive Education with Airs. Ostenkamp, in charge, opened a lot of new fields for her students. Commercial work consisting of Typing, Shorthand and Book- keeping was offered for the first time with Airs. Chittum as instructor. School began quietlv enough, but soon someone started to yell for an annual. Teachers told us to plug for what we wanted and plug we did, or rather Howard Sparks did the plugging. Airs. Chittum was put in charge and things began to buzz and buzz till you have what you now see before you — the first annual of Alexander Park High School. The year is over. For many of us it is to be our last year in high school, for many it is just the beginning. But for those of us who are leaving, we will never forget the many happy hours we spent here and the joy and satisfaction of seeing our school grow into one that we all can be proud to call our Alma Alater. —Marsha Weiner.

Our team, although they were under many handicaps in their first year of Class P Competition and lost many games, they were a hard hitting, determined bunch and never took a beating lying down. Our team took their wins and losses with equal pride for they had faith as we had faith, that when another season opens, Alexander Park will be more able to cope with their more experienced rivals. T are proud of the fine group of boys who played so hard for us this season.

We have a few- experienced veterans from last year’s out- standing team, also some very promising material from last year’s reserves. There are many on the squad for the first time from the lower classes which should make splendid material in several years. Those who saw service last year were James Hill, R. B. Williams, Bill Jones, Dale Sloan, Marshall Ellington, Joe Smith, and Lewis Campbell. There is much competition for the different positions and under the direction of Mr. Zehzeniak, our popular and efficient coach, we have hopes of a very suc- cessful season with opponents in Class B competition this season.

There’s something about Coca-Cola. Ever notice how you associate it with hap- py moments? There’s that delicious taste you don’t fmd this side of Coca-Cola, itself. It’s a chummy drink that people like right-out-of- the-bottle. Yes siree, the only thing like Coca-Cola is Coca-Cola, itself.” G ask IN " OH, FOR AN ICE-COLD COCA-COLA " BOTTLED UNDER AUTHORITY OF THE COCA-COLA COMPANY BY McClure Printing Company THE RUNNELS PRESS COLLEGE ANNUALS AND CATALOGS FINE ADVERTISING PRINTING 19 West Frederick St. Phone 605 Staunton, Virginia t ometimes it is the nature of a craft to create an unbreakable tie between itself and the worker in that field, a heart attachment equal to lifetime devotion. One familiar example is PRINTING. Once editor, once compositor, or press- man catches the spirit of the shop, the spell is seldom broken. Like the odor of a camp fire, or a whiff of salt air, the beloved tang of printer’s ink, symboli- cal of a great profession, gets into your heart and soul. School Annuals, INIagazines, Newspapers and Special Printing, all smack of it. It is an invisible link that binds all intelligence together. It is the stimulus for creation in business or romance. This craftsmanship, this devotion to service and alert- ness to business needs, has nourished and developed an enormous industrial vitality, and whichever way the course of the future runs, the printer will always find himself able to adapt his helpfulness to new opportunity. )’cars of experience have taught us! Printing Pays Us Only When It Pays You! PORTSMOUTH PUBLIC LIBRARY
