Football At eight o’clock on the first of October, we started our 1943 season on the Roanoke College field. The big blue and white soon started rolling and we romp¬ ed through our first game with William Byrd of Vinton, to the tune of 27 to 6. Our next game with William Fleming was witnessed by a majority of the student body. After a hard and stubborn fight the Fleming Colonels bowed to the Wolverines 13 to 7. The Fleming boys were in the game the whole time but the blue team’s powerful running attack was the discisive factor. On the 29th of October we played the Byrd Terriers under the lights again. Our Lewis team won their third straight after a hard game 7 to 0. The following week was spent in hard practice for the big game of the year with our closest rival, Jef¬ ferson of Roanoke. On Saturday, November 5, at three o’clock the whistle blew and our big game of the year was on. After a hard and stubborn fight we finally dropped the game to a powerful Jeff team. Our line play was excep¬ tionally good in this game and the Roanoke backs had to fight hard for every inch of the ground gained. The Lewis backs ran hard and fast throughout the game and it was really a heartbreaker to lose. Our last game of the season was played on the William Fleming field on the following Saturday afternoon. The game see-sawed back and forth with Lewis and Fleming repeatedly threatening each others goals. The game ended after a hard fight in a scoreless tie. We all look forward to next year’s season and we can all be rightly proud of our 1943 football team. Our Physical Education Program The physical education program here at Andrew Lewis this session is a program that is planned to contribute to the physical fitness of our high school pupils as a part of the total war effort. Instruction and practice in calisthenics, gymnastics, combatives, sports, obstacle course racing, and skills adapted in in¬ tensity and duration to the individual needs of pupils are emphasized. The choice of activities and methods are made in light of the needs of youth at the present time, and the recommendations of representatives of the Army and Navy. It is recognized that programs of health service, health instruction, health¬ ful school living, physical education, and recreation all have an important in¬ fluence on physical fitness. However, the program is directed definitely toward the physical conditioning of high ,school pupils. In general, the activity program pro¬ vides at least one regular school period daily of instruction in physical education and health instruction for all pupils. The purpose of the program outlined is to make high school pupils physically fit to undertake the unusually heavy tasks they will probably be called upon to assume in the near future. For some it will be induction into the armed forces. For this group the program has two main objectives: 1. Strength, endurance, 4 { 84 }•

stamina, and bodily coordination, and 2. physical skills that will be of direct value and use. For others it will be for employment in agriculture, industry, com¬ merce, domestic services and other essential occupations. For this latter group the program has these two objectives: 1. Develop their respective abilities to perform them, and, 2. adapt them to the prospective services in which they en¬ gage upon leaving school. There is great need for physical fitness at this time, as large numbers of pupils now enrolled here will enter into active service in the armed forces and wartime industry in the immediate future. In addition to the boys who will be called to some form of service, it has been estimated that 10,000,000 women will be employed in war production, many of whom will be drawn from the age group now in high school. These girls must be fit in order to render effective service, not only in technical skill and morale, but also physically fit in order to with¬ stand the hard work and active service which will be required of them. A person who is physically fit must be capable of maintaining sustained ef¬ fort with a maximum of speed and skill. Speed, agility, and flexibility in move¬ ment are important factors in skill. This means that one must have strength, stamina, endurance, and good coordination. By being physically fit we will be able to contribute our best at this important time in our nation’s history. We have pointed our physical education program in that direction, and toward that objective. We await the future to see the results of our program. 85 ]»
