JJ-SlUPlO«S Q Brov t OWdy‘ ' J k BEST ALL AROUND Miriam Drew " Howdy” Crawson CiaM What was begun is finished and we start anew. We look back without regret to our beginning .... an humble and a meager one in which we shared enthusiasm and dread. We were lonely, but not alone. Yet the years soon passed by. The loneliness is past and we have only our memories of it . . . and other memories .... they come crowding back, different from each of us, yet really all the same. Joy, Anger, Sorrow, Tears .... and most of all Laughter. Each one brings a special event, a special person to our minds; and we think and dream until we ore lost in the reveries of a gay world .... a sad and weary world. Four years, however loyg it seemed to be on that fall day of 1943, appear to have passed quickly and June ' 47 is here. Such a multitude of events cross our minds. Some of us attended the seventh grade here, in the houses on Cavalier Boulevard, but the majority of the class started as Freshmen in the High School Building, under various teachers such as Miss Miriam Miller, who has left us to go back to her beloved Massachusetts. Then Miss Fitzgerald, who left us for Cradock, Miss McGown, who has since become Mrs. Alsup, and we can ' t leave out the Payne sisters. ' There are Misses Lorena Payne, Anne Payne, Bess Payne, and Mrs. Buchanen, who is residing here in the pork. We had some swell times that first year, with everyone rushing around and wondering where to go next. There were so many of the students in the halls when classes were changing, that if you stopped unthinkingly to tie a loose shoelace, about four people would go over your head before you could straighten up. Yep, those were the times! Remember the time when the lunchroom finally opened and everyone was rushing to be the first in line? Ah, those lines! They were so long that by the time you reached the cafeteria, the menu had changed. (From beans to bean soup! ) ‘■i ' r T .Vf t ' I try I ' W; •H |- ?(oGi ,w%AD «Mr Vr " i!i ui ' V ' Jii lyj m-fC ' nQo»m n tmn •fdMwH tm y ' twtoti ' P rt vk ) l• ■J f ' ri »8ri _ toil fccj ' ‘vu.; ‘V A 1 4 i -|JH . , , »i ■ . 1 (Vfrfft ' t ' no tilt ' d 1 (ir ' ' vi . j l .-.WW, r-.T.Ubwr.,-4.tt , W «Ml -.v . ,■ l■■ ■ ' . v. .

Then we were Sophomores, and we felt as if we were really progressing. The school building had been painted and shrubbery had been set out in front of the school. That was the year that " Mairzy Doats " became so popular and everyone was learning to do the " jitterbug " . Everybody was meeting new people and joining the new clubs that had been formed by the school. Girls were still swooning over " Bing " and people were wondering if the war would ever end. Also if June ' 45 would ever come! But it did and next we were juniors and the girls were wearing " Sloppy Joe sweaters " and the boys were sporting flashy bow-ties and bright suspend- ers. We had dances and parties sponsored by the different school committees and clubs, and we were proud to show off a quite successful athletic teams. " Frankie ' s " crooning was all the rage, and people were humming " Chickery Chick. " And yet again were we wondering if the school term would ever end. And then, finally, came the great day. We were Seniors! At long last. More than one of us will remember coming out in the now traditional downpour of rain to register in school. 1 say the ' now traditional ' downpour because every year yet, when comes that certain fall day to register in school, also comes a downpour of rain! But this downpour didn ' t seem to dampen our spirits. We were Seniors! And were we proud to leave the waiting lines out in front while we marched down the hall to register in the Library! And prouder yet to march down front to take our seats in the first few rows of chairs in assembly programs, in the auditorium. We have many memories to look back upon and reflect upon silently with now and then a chuckle. Thoughtful memories, joyful memories, tearful mem- ories and proud memories. Yes, we are proud to be Seniors! Proud of the boys and girls who have been outstanding in our sports, athletics and classes. Proud to be the Senior class of ' 47 from A. P. H. S. Nancye L.

M, Back in the middle part of August, nine returning lettermen from the 1945 football team, and about 20 new candidates, began training for the 1946 season ahead under the capable leadership of Mr. Bob Stevenson, our new coach. At the begirining of our sea- son, our coaching staff greeted another coach to help Mr. Steven- son with his work. This was Mr. Joseph Palowski. Formerly of the University of Illinois where he captained the 1941 Illini team. Mr. Palowski and Mr. Stevenson were well liked by every member of the squad and the boys fought hard for their coaches and school. With its hard hitting line, quick backfield and excellent i coaching staff, the team provided many a thrill and we were I proud of them for their " never say die " spirit that they carried 1 throughout the rugged and streneous season of 1946. One instant 1 of this spirit was the Nationals 19-13 win over Cradock, our tradi- tional rivals, who were favored to win 45-0, but our boys turned the tables on Cradock and came out on the right side of the score. Our team didn ' t win every game they played, they won only three, dropped five, and tied one, but their fighting spirit and good sportsmanship, that throughout the season never faltered, has indeed became a living part of all athletics of Alexander Park High School. ' The 1946 " Nationals " wish to leave to the 1947 " Nationals " the will to win, fight hard and always be a good and clean sport. The " Nationals " also wish to express their thanks to the student body, the swell cheerleaders and last but not least our principal Mr. Seawell. None ever failed us, " Keep up the Good Work. " I a ketlfail Considering that we have only two lettermen back this year, we have been very lucky in having such a successful season. It was very hard for the boys at the beginning of the season be- cause they had very little experience and had never played together, but never-the-less, they overcame these handicaps and won their first game; which was with Deep Creek. The Na- tionals traveled on the road of Glory, until they were defeated by the South Norfolk Tigers, but the boys showed good sportsman- ship, and took the loss with ease. They make a good showing throughout the season. We were very fortunate to have such a swell coach as Joe Pawlowski this year. We all hope he ' s back next year. t ' ”r. -.yj •♦♦Jr m 4 K ' ' ‘ ' »i’ ' , V fr ' T - ,V 6 ;: ' ■m KT nr i lATi fv. f ■ ' Ji ’ JVl.

The first meeting was held in the gym December 1, 1946, with forty girls eager to make the team. After two weeks of practice, the squad was limited to twenty. The position of captain of the team rotates between Patsy Miller, Marianne Beck, Miriam Drew, the only letter-men returning. These three outstanding girls formed the nucleus for the basketball squad. The team has shown steady improvement throughout the season, under the capable leadership of our new coach, R. L. Stevenson. It is impossible to appreciate the grand work done by our guards during the entire season. Although they never made any points, they kept the op- ponentsfrom adding freely to their score. The team will greatly miss the Seniors who are graduating, but they are looking forward to an even bigger and better years. Our team has shown the highest degree of sportsmanship in the county. We are greatly pleased with their fine reputation. Our motto is " Win or Lose, always be a good sport. " I!’ r ' ■ ' ..

As soon as school started this year, the cheerleaders also started working up new yells lor the coming football season. Due to the fact a new Gym teacher was here the same cheerleaders were kept from last year. Three of the cheerleaders were on the basketball team. Mary Harper was appointed leader and Marilyn Turner assistant leader. But even the boys had to admit the cheerleaders helped to pull through some of the football games and backed them up at the basketball games. We also hope to help prrll them through their baseball games. I I i ' «W«4V«|M ' n ' 4 .. » . ’ .«.rt »-C V. fl ( • .1».- i ■» X ,710 i ' .-,.. . 111 W ' i .

We students who have helped in the office this year feel that it has beei a very profitable and pleasant year. It has given us a lot of experience at various tasks. At the same time it has shown us how to cope with a few of the simple problems that we will most likely face in a short while if an office career is chosen. We have aided the clerks by helping with some of the following duties: receiving telephone calls, carrying messages, taking care of the absentees, filing and other miscellaneous duties. 1 ,.,,:•• : w-. j| f?,n ; vl WY “ • » ' - nft M -M -- , . ,r I,..
