r DfGlTIZEDCSH DGB ' IvVi h :jSJ£ Cl l o n a PRESENTED BY THE SENIOR CLASS OF ALEXANDER PARK HIGH SCHOOL, PORTSMOUTH, VIRGINIA. Portsmouth Public Librarv Dedication To Mrs. Arlene M. Moore, whose fellowship and understanding have been with us throughout our school days in Alexander Park, the Senior Class affectionately dedicates the 1946 NATIONAL C able of Contents ADMINISTRATION CLASSES ACTIVITIES FEATURES ADVERTISEMENTS o r e w o r a Nineteen forty-six is the first year we have attended classes in Alexander Park under peace-time conditions. Although our school was created by the war, the only change has been the loss of a few stud- ents. Despite the fact that we were all temporarily established, our school was not " harem-scarem " as might have been expected. We realize that A.P.H.S. will be a school several years after the peace and the old " war spirit " will be carried on. We will look back with pleasant memories and proudly speak of " Old A.P.H.S " Of () minis Iratlon Me. William A. Early When Alexander Park first became a settlement, Mr, William Early was faced with the difficult problem of educating over four thousand children in a new community. That was in January 1943 — since then schools have been built by the government and organized under Mr. Early’s management. Resigning as principal of Alexander Park in December 1945, he became Superintendent of Norfolk County. In his absence, Mr. William Seawell has been appointed Acting Principal, assisted by Mrs. Anne Kilgore, counsellor. Mr. William Seawell Mrs. Anne Kilgore Qe ig -6 cMcdional Mrs. William Early Miss Beatrice Belcher Mrs. Ralph Maroney Almost every student in Alexander Park High School is familiar with the office clerks, Mrs. Maroney and Mrs. Early. During lunch periods, Mrs. Maroney works as cashier in the cafeteria helping Miss Beatrice Belcher, the cafeteria manager. Mrs. Early and Mrs. Maroney are assisted by ‘‘the office messengers.” These students take messages, file, and help in many other ways. They are pictured below.

Sixth period found Roy Anderson, Aileen Winstead, Barbara Jean Smith, Miss Marge Madden, and Branson Stone hard at work in Room 13. Oftentimes Bill Anderton and Howard Mahaney would drop in to render some assistance in planning the sports and club pages. Work on the book was halted only to sponsor the Sweetheart Dance. The staff worked hard to put on a good dance as well as make money. Buddy Steel and his orchestra played and the Sweetheart of Alexander Park was announced and crowned at the dance.

It was organized in the fall of 1943 under the able leadership of Miss Hundley. From the very first, it proved to be one of the most interesting and active clubs in the high school. The Club is planning a very active part in the celebration of Latin Week, which falls this year on the last week in April. At the present time, the club members are busily engaged in preparing an exhibit of Roman life, which will be on display during Latin Week in the Latin room. The week will be climaxed by a special program and entertainment for the parents of the Latin Club members. The Club colors are light blue and dark blue, and the Club song is “We’re the Members of J.

It is pub- lished semi-monthly by the untiring efforts of the staff and the sponsorship of Miss Nancy O. Devers. Circulation aims at 500 copies with more or less as determined by the pressure of the particular issue. We have spilled the ink and mended machines. Obstacles are our challenge. Unstinted effort and cooperation are our watchwords. Of i k e t L C S The ability to live and to work with other people and good sportsmanship in all our activities are perhaps the most valuable acquirements we can take with us when we leave Alexander Park High School. In working in the various organizations, we have learned to adapt our interests to those best for the group as a whole and to respect the opinions of others. As members of an athletic team — basketball, football, or baseball — we have learned the value of co-operation in winning the game. We have also learned to play fairly, to do our best, and to play out the game whether we win or lose. Oe ig fG cMationai The National staff proudly introduces the two boys who have proved themselves to be the most all around athletes in the high school this year. Bill Anderton, besides having been captain of the football team, played on the basketball team and on the baseball team. Bill’s ability extends beyond the field of athletics into the various clubs and organizations of the school. Howard Crawson, better known as “Howdy,” has made a grand captain of the basketball team. Howdy has also made a good record in football and baseball. In addition to all this, Howdy was president of the Junior Class and works in many other activities in the school.

Only a few of the boys had had experience, but they all teamed up and under the direction of Coach Byrd and Coach Zebzeniak, the boys quickly learned much about football. Although they didn’t top any of the teams in knowledge and in score, the Nationals topped most of them with their spirit and good sportsmanship. Then, as in 1945, no matter where they went to play, their good sportsmanship and good spirit went side by side with that of the students, giving the boys that “die- hard” feeling which kept them going until the last whistle was blown. After the season was over, some of our boys left and others graduated, leaving their same spirit and good sportsmanship. With its hard hitting line, quick backfield, and excellent coach, the team drove home the first win of the year. Also, the boys fought their way to a tie in two thrilling games, outplaying their oppo- sition in both games. To the team of 1946, the 1945 Nationals wish to leave that same spirit and sportsmanship that is truly a tradition in Alexander Park High School. To the student body which was always well represented, the 1945 Nationals wish to say, 21 Bill Howell 29 Bob Anthony 39 Dale Sloan 28 Jimmy Powers 33 Harry Scarce 13 Leonard Pugh 31 Erwin Poplin 41 Randolph Ramsey 37 Howard Crawson 26 Billy Eason 35 Bill Anderton 23 Jimmy Spies 34 Eugene Cooper 43 Moir Hiatt 40 Bill Leonard 38 Ray Bracy 25 Howard Mahaney 42 Bob Johnson 36 Fred Harper 32 Robert Walsh 27 Kenneth Brown 30 Branson Stone Coach MR. FARRAR Manager HAROLD MULLINS ■ ■ KEEP THAT BALL!!!! Boys Basketball At the beginning of the season of basketball, the outlook for the boys’ basket- ball team was not very bright. Only two lettermen from last year returned, Howard Crawson (Guard), and Bill Anderton (Forward). Since the rest of the boys had no experience in playing together with team work, a difficult problem faced Coach Farrar. Despite these drawbacks, the boys, with many days of hard work and prac- tice, soon made a united team. The boys showed their willingness to work and play together. Though the basketball team did not win every game, the boys fought every game out to the very end. The boys in the basketball team have showed that traditional fighting spirit and good sportsmanship that is now a living part of Alexander Park High School. ig fG cMationai Forwards Anderton 35 Mahaney 24 Davenport 34 Walsh 37 Varian 2a Guards Crawson 22 Spies, J 23 Kelly 33 Mullins 28 Howell 26 Centers Johnson 31 Powers 36 Stone 30 Coach John Farrar HOWARD CRAWSON Captain Manager Ray Piracy V arsity Bast eft all Alexander Park . . . . 19 Portlock 22 Alexander Park . . . . 12 St. Joseph 14 Alexander Park . . . . 22 Cradock 20 Alexander Park . . . . 34 Broad Creek 23 Alexander Park. . . . 47 Church land 10 Alexander Park . . . . 21 Oceana 27 Alexander Park . . . . 15 Norview 26 Alexander Park . . . . 34 Cradock 38 Alexander Park . . . . 32 Morrison 20 Alexander Park . . . . 32 Suffolk 25 Alexander Park . . . . 38 South Norfolk 46 Alexander Park . . . . 44 St. Joseph 34 Alexander Park . . . . 24 Suffolk 23 Alexander Park. . . . 25 Churchland 14 Alexander Park. . . . 33 Morrison 18 Alexander Park . . . . 21 Norview 33 Alexander Park. . . . 56 Oceana 39 Alexander Park. . . . 47 Broad Creek 24 Alexander Park . . . . 28 South Norfolk 53 Alexander Park. . . .

BALLET!!! OH ! COME ON DOWN. Our girls’ team has developed into the best team since the organization of basketball in the school. Six veterans from last year’s squad and fourteen girls chosen from forty contestants, made up the team. The high scorers for the season were — Pope 135, Wiggins 95, Brinkley 87, Granger 56 and Bell 56. It is impossible to appreciate the grand work done by our guar ds during the entire season. Although they never made any points, they kept the opponents from adding freely to their score. Members of the team have had fun during the season selling drinks to aid the Athletic Fund. Our team was under the capable leadership of our new coach, Mrs. Donald. The team will greatly miss Pope, Granger and Wiggins, who are graduating, but they are looking forward to an even bigger and better year.

Do you remember our Freshman year when we went to school in those funny, little, brown houses? Those certainly were “the good old days!” Remember that first day when we waded through mud several inches deep only to be late for school? However, after registering things began to get organ- ized at 620 Cavalier Boulevard with our likable principal, Mr. Early, in charge. Our next day was spent in getting acquainted with the other students and teachers. Imagine a high school without an electric bell! Well, this was just one of the few things that our school lacked that first year. No, it wasn’t the bell of a stray cow that we heard, it was Wat Seawell wading up and down the muddy road ringing a cow bell to call us to class. “Gee, but it’s cold,” is a phrase that we heard many times that year, because o« 1C)4 Oblational Oh, yes! We also had all the conveniences of home including modern refrigerators, and don’t think our teachers didn’t loathe the crunching of ice on hot summer days. If the students were quiet, the teacher was apt to catch some- one easing out a window or disappearing through the trap door in the closet. No, it wasn’t an illusion. There was actually a new high school built at 409 McLean Street during the summer of 1943. It was here that we entered our Sophomore year with much enthusiasm, although this wonderful new building was not complete. That year we had our first assistant principal, Mr. Campbell. During the year the school boasted of basketball and softball teams. Time passed and September 1944 rolled around. So — here we were back to school again to enter our Junior year. That year we had a new assistant prin- cipal, Mr. L. W. Anderson, and other new members were added to our faculty as new subjects were introduced. These included Distributive Education, Typing, Bookkeeping, and Shorthand. Ahhh, believe it or not ! we really had a cafeteria. When the noon bell rang it certainly was one grand scramble to see who could get there first. Later in the year our grounds were beautified with the planting of grass and shrubbery. Another September; and a very rainy day, but this time, it was something different. We were Seniors. Wl.o will forget the envious looks of our under- classmen as we paraded down the hall to register? As usual we had a new assistant principal, Mr. W. H. Seawell, who later in the year became acting OH ! ! ! MY ACH I N’ RACK ! ! ! principal. Mr. W. A. Early was appointed Superintendent of Norfolk County Schools, he had been with us since the opening of our school. We are very proud of our new superintendent, but we regret the loss of a very fine principal. There was never a thrill like the opening of the football season. It opened this year with Moir Hiatt playing Left Guard; Jimmie Powers playing Left End ; and Bob Johnson playing Center. What a team ! ! ! Remember the Halloween party that the Junior class sponsored? Miss Devers came dressed as a “Portsmouth Star.” The hidden talent of our school was exhibited during the Amateur Show sponsored by the Beta Club. Look who took first prize, Raymond Saboleski ! Who ever thought he was going to win crooning like Frank Sinatra? Our school band not only won second prize in this show but three of its players, Lois Hall, John Guthrie, and Annette Tanner made All-State Band. Our basketball teams got under way during the middle of December. Several of our star players were Kathleen Pope, Audrey Granger and Nancy Wiggins on the girls’ team; and Bill Anderton, Howard Mahaney, and Bernard Gribble on the boys ' team. These players were “on the ball.” Our cheerleaders played a very active part in urging our teams to victory. I wonder if Gene Walker lost her voice from yelling so much? This year Carolyn Henderson was crowned “Sweetheart of Alexander Park” CHOW LINE lie ig fG tonal CATCH IN’ FLIES? DUCK THE WEED, BOB! at the dance which was given in her honor. Her maid-of-honor was Joyce Kaps, The court consisted of the following girls : Marianne Beck, Dorothy High, Audrey Jones, Patsy Miller, Genevieve Murphy, Colene Pope, Annette Tanner, Marilyn Turner, and Nancy Wiggins. It certainly was a beautiful crowning. When mid-term exams rolled around, Robert Walsh made the highest grade in Mrs. Moore’s Government class. He must have studied!! When we saw r something yellow going by the school house, we knew it must be Dale Sloan driving our school bus. If it was Margaret Ferguson that Mr. Seawell was looking for during gym period, he was certain to find her in room 25 working on the school newspaper. 1 wonder who will be editor of the annual next year? Roy Anderson cer- tainly made a splendid editor-in-chief of our 1946 annual. At the close of this year after the Junior-Senior Prom many of our boys will be leaving for the armed forces. And now it is with the mingled feeling of anticipation and regret that we finish our school career. Many friendships have been formed during these years, but we intend to take their memories with us wherever we go. Wherever we are, even years from now, we will take our 1946 annual down from the shelf, dust it off and scan the pages to refresh our memories of the school days which were spent at Alexander Park High School.

Printing Pays Us Only When It Pays You! McClure Printing Company THE RUNNELS PRESS COLLEGE ANNUALS AND CATALOGS FINE ADVERTISING PRINTING 19 West Frederick St. Piione 605 Staunton, Virginia Sometimes 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, Magazines, 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. 3230 00143 4780
