High school life wasn’t meant to be all work and no play and our drama is certainly no exception. In the first part of this act the team is cheered and the morale of all is lifted at rousing pep assemblies. Homecoming rolls around and the alumni are honored with festivities and a diligently prepared parade. Also at this time we are entertained by a rollicking faculty talent show. Winter enters the scene with the gaiety and color ot the Christmas dance and the collection of Christmas baskets. Next on our extracurricular agenda are the class talent shows and numerous special assemblies to which both the students and faculty look forward. The year is rounded out with the swirl of evening dresses and boys wearing ties and jackets at the spring dances. Although this completes the social curriculum of our drama, the many achieve¬ ments of Andrew Lewis students are certainly not to be overlooked. This is an act of our play that is full of fond memories and laughter, color and excitement, one which we will always hold dear. Proudly then we spotlight

FIRST ROW, Left to Right: Larry Early, Bill Wade, Bobby Blankenbaker, Pat Powers, Wayne Taliaferro, Alwood Williams, Neil Churchill. SECOND ROW: Mike Terry, Manager; Sonny Tarpley, Clark Vandergrift, Dewey Nester, Wayland Overstreet, Nelson Powell, Rich Paugh, Dougas Wickham, Raymond Bussard, Coach. I Outdoor State Almost all of the boys pictured above scored points in winning the “grand-daddy” of all track meets for Andrew Lewis. Lewis scored thirty-two and one-third points and its nearest opponent scored twenty-six points. Neil Churchill and Bill Wade took second and fifth places respectively in the shot put. Pat Powers vaulted to a tie for first place in the pole vault event. Alwood Williams captured two first places, one in the high hurdles, the other in the low hurdles, good for twelve points. Wayne Taliaferro, the team captain, racked up a second in the high hurdles, a third in the low hurdles, and a tie for fifth in the high jump. Sonny Tarpley set a new school record in taking fifth place in the mile run. Our mile relay team composed of Nelson Powell, Wayland Overstreet, Dewey Nester, and Larry Early iced the victory with a Tird place in that event. Pictured in the inserts are the following: Pat Pow¬ ers, school record holder in the pole vault; Wayne Taliafetro, team captain; and Alwood Williams, who won two first places in the state meet. There is an interesting anecdote which came out of the track meet. When the team reached Williams¬ burg for the meet, Coach Bussard bought an issue of the local newspaper. The sports page quoted, “It’s all over but the cheering.” It went on to relate that Wakefield, led by a couple of speedy sprinters, was a sure cinch to carry back the winning team’s trophy. On several occasions on the way home, Coach Bus¬ sard would stop in a town. When the cars had stopped and everybody had piled out, he would pull out the newspaper and proceed to read, “It’s all over but the cheering.” And every time that he read this, a loud victory cry arose from the boys. This group of boys composed one of the finest ath¬ letic teams ever assembled at Andrew Lewis and com¬ manded the respect of the school, the town, and the community. 92
