The 1974 enrollment exceeded last year ' s nrollment by almost 200 students. The addition of these students caused many of the familiar conditions existing around chool. The cafeteria seethed with bodies for 2 hours a day. Stolen chairs, crowded chairs, lost books; and elongated lines narked the students daily visit to the lunchroom. Students filled some of the required courses far beyond the capacity of he room and teacher. Often students are seated on the new carpet because of a lack of desks. A teacher could hardly be ‘xpected to give his optimum to each of the 30 to 40 students in his class. With 39 other people in the room it was hard to eceive all that the teacher could give. When 1,000 people moved thru the same building, at the same time, going to dif¬ ferent places, many delays and hall jams resulted. The mobile units, the administrations answer to 900 extra people, con- inued to leak and be drafty. rhe administration took steps to correct or at least ease these problems. As the year, progressed more tables and chairs were idded to the same cafeteria. Students were allowed to eat outside for the first time in October. However, the two greatest mprovements to the school were carpet and climate control heating and cooling. The carpet proved to be quite a good ubstitute for chairs and an excellent retainer for chewing gum. Climate control meant mat it was cold in the winter and lot in the summer. The packed parking place saw relief in asphalt filled holes and m the form of gravel at the cost of one lollar parking stickers. Although discussed at length, no third exit, one for the student parking lot appeared, lo ease the :rowding of classrooms teachere were assigned to new subjects. One typing teacher had one class of English; a social studies lepartment head would be found teaching English. Mr. Cox ' s secondary job was to uncrowd the halls by persuing the elusive lall pass. All in all the administration made many attempts to relieve the uncomfortable situations. Still, 1,000 people is alot of people in this school. The future is becoming concrete in a naked scar on Short Lane Road But for the meantime, we ' re overflowing and yet we ' re almost gone. I Tryouts for flag-pole sitting team? TABLE OF CONTENTS SENIOR SECTION 22 POWDER PUFF 34 SENIOR DAY 50 PROM 52 JUNIOR SECTION 55 SOPHOMORE SECTION 69 Transition 1974 was the second year of transition. Gloucester High School took her second step on the road to becoming a big school. The rise in student population was only one aspect in this transition. The formation of many new teams, groups, and activities was another. The 74 debate team showed the red and white proudly in many tourneys. Tennis became an interscholastic sport for the first time. Forensic club and other groups made a brave showing. Brave indeed. The Tennis team played without nets or in the gym. The Debate team members often payed most of their way. Some girls sports had trouble obtaining transportation as did other sports whose participation was limited. The time has come when Gloucester should take the step from a small one-team school to a large, well balanced institution. The people are here, all that is needed is money. The swell of Gloucester county and Gloucester High School had some similarities. Both systems, school and county, had sewage problems be¬ cause of the overflow of people. The county experienced a number of sewage spills into the rivers. The school had troubles with the main lines to the cesspool. Both prob¬ lems resulted in an unpleasant atmosphere. The traffic problem in the county, received attention in the form of a bypass for Gloucester Court House. While both systems were feeling the expansion, both took some steps to deal with it.

Everywhere You Look, What Do You See But People, People, And More People? Enthusiasm is the name of the game. Overcrowding keeps people from seeing. What are you looking for, Bill? T Had to sit on a trashcan because you couldn ' t find a seat? How Many Times Have You— Wished the gym had bleachers on both sides? Had to chase Mr. Cox through a crowded parking lot? Had to steal a chair from the teachers table, and come back to find that someone lifted you rolls? 4 Wished that the Cafeteria had traffic lights? Overcrowding makes people do strange things. The enormous growth of our school has one source, people. These students had two sources in most cases, parents. These parents came from many places and for many reasons, but their arrival caused G. H. S. to grow along with Gloucester Coun¬ ty. This relation was hardly a coincidence. The continuing growth of Gloucester County is largely due to its acceptance as a residential area. As housing for Newport News becomes scarce, more and more people are coming to Gloucester to live and yet work in Newport News. Gloucester is rapidly becoming a bedroom county. The growth of the county is evidenced by such beautiful landmarks as Grant City, and the Gloucester Point Apartments. So far the main deterent to growth has been the continuance of the toll on the Coleman Bridge. Rumor has it that the toll will come off sometime in the future, which may increase the school ' s problems. " Up here I have the advantage. I can see where I ' m going above the crowd " . 5 Advanced Biology The school year now past saw just under twenty-five people take a course offered for the first time here at GHS. That course was advanced Biology. At the beginning of the year, the students were advised not to purchase the approved book for the course, but to purchase the a supplementary text which was more complete and less expensive. So most students followed this advice. Then the course got under way and most students realized that the class was pure comparative anatomy and memorization of names and muscles, bones, blood vessels, nerves and miscellaneous organs. Dissection was often fun, but tests meant memorizing names like buccal cavity, choroid plexers, ventral bar of branchial basket, myocomma, cephalic circle, atvioventricular opening, and many of the hundreds of others. Then somebody in a high place said that we had to buy a textbook or we would not receive credit for the course. Most of them yielded, but a few people suggested a protest in a club meeting. Although the idea was turned down by the club, an unfaithful sponsor was responsible for ordering Mr. Brown to use the book, which was useless to the course. So we studied the difference between static and dynamic science. Meanwhile, people wondered why they had taken the course. Knowledge gained was forgotton rapidly, and most people, having had this experience with Biology, would probably not be overly anxious to take it in college. So is it worth all this to have another credit on your rec¬ ord? Too many students automatically take the next hard course in line, whether or not they really want to. So the class went through frogs, lamprey, eels, rabbits and pro¬ gressed to human anatomy. Some of the class may not have great respect for his teaching methods, but he excells ac the fine art of giving extremely hard tests, which is exactly what he did with human anatomy. The textbook was never used again, and apparently the threat was forgotton for those few rebels who never bought a book. 6 Science Club Analysis was the name of a new course taught by Mr. Spano. Although it sounds like a fancy term for a chemistry course, it is actually only a fancy term for Senior Math. Consisting of a mixture of Albegra, Trig., and miscellaneous advanced math, this basis for the course was greatly expanded to include an in-depth study of the pun-making ability, based on first-hand class¬ room experience. This class was unique here at GHS in that it had almost none of the problems that plague other classes. It was not crowded, having under fifteen people. The students were not coerced into learning; a spirit of increased freedom was felt by all the class. Which is not to say that nobody taught and nobody learned, for quite the opposite was true. But there was more responsibility on the student to learn, no rigorous assignments were given. Homework problems were not collected, if you didn ' t do them you flunked the tests. The fact that the room temperature was above 80°, often drove the class outside. All in all, the students managed to learn some math and survive the year without developing and intense dislike of the course. What ' s the hold up? 7 ADS Part I Bill Fary Ford, Inc.

Freda Hess Sec., Cathy Leigh Tres., Joe Dischinger Pres., Bobby Rowe Historian One hundred and seventy nine seniors populate Gloucester High School. There might have been more; there could beeless. A few students skipped a year, and a few students graduated early. Nevertheless, senior classes are seldom empty. The required courses are filled. A sprinkling of senior can also be found elsewhere. Seniors can be found in advanced math and science, typing and other busi¬ ness related fields, shop, and almost any other place imaginable. However, no matter where they are, all seniors have several common traits; these traits are not always obvious, but they are still there. An air of super¬ iority and calm along with a sense of humor distinguish a senior. Seniors are friendly people. Barry Jones discusses Biology with a friend. A multitude of mouths and a small cafeteria make happiness a soft ice cream. Crowded class allows each student to learn at her own speed.

I was working the night shift out of Guinea. My partner Frank Stoned and I got a call to re¬ port to G.H. S. , on a 3-11 (mischief and mayhem). My name ' s Thurs¬ day. We arrived on the scene at 8:13 p.m. and proceeded to the football field. Steam was rising; we knew we were in for hot action. The grapevine had been buzzing all week about trouble between the North Side Gang (The Juniors) and the West Side Gang (The Seniors). As we approached the scene, we noticed several strange ladies. We proceeded to interrogate Josephine Dishwasher, who informed me that they were cheerleaders for the West Side. We proceeded onto the football field where a person we later determined to be an official, because he was wearing a whistle, stumbled toward us. Timothy Sponge slurred his answers to us. Miss Panchison, what would you say is your chief attribute? The Powder Puff THURSDAY: " Just the facts sir. Whats happening here? " SPONGE: " Ah! There seems to be a football game going on. " THURDAY: " Who ' s officiating? " SPONGE: " Ah! I don ' t know but every time I blow the whistle everybody stops. I even got to call a-ah-what do ya call it, a protection? " THURSDAY: " You mean a safety. " SPONGE: " I think that ' s what it ' s called. Is that all officer? " THURSDAY: " I think so, but don ' t leave the field. We may want you to walk the 28 1 2 line for us. As Mr. Sponge left, the captain of theWest Side Gang steamed over and we interrogated her. THURSDAY: " What ' s your name? " She replied, " Polaroid. " THURSDAY: " That your whole name? " She replied, " No sir, full name is Polaroid Cool RHEA! THURSDAY: " What ' s going on here, ma ' am? " COOL RHEA: " They ' re getting on my case. " THURSDAY: " 3.2 or 6.4? " COOL RHEA: " It doesn ' t matter, just bring out the brew. " THURSDAY: " What caused the problem? " COOL RHEA: " Well I threw the ball to someone who was supposed to be on my team, but seemed to be playing for the North Side. The ball was dropped and Sponge blew that-whistle an 1 called a protection! Now that got on my case. Ai those guards! " THURSDAY: " I can understand, but who are the captains of the North Side? " COOL RHEA: " Warpath and Big Mac. They are right over there. " Stoned and I proceeded to question the other captains. THURSDAY: " What are your names? " They repl " Kim Jo Warpath and Big Mac. " Look at those legs! Football Game THURSDAY: " Just the facts, ma ' am. What about the guards? " WARPATH: " You mean the ones that Cool Rhea attacked?? " THURSDAY: " Yes ma ' am. " BIG MAC: " They were playing an honest clean-cut game when this rough Cool Rhea, for no reason at all, brutally and viciously mauled them, de¬ fenseless, helpless guards. " COOL RHEA: " Wait a minute, your defenseless whaaatt? Your guards had wrapped their big mitts around me and I was simply defending myself. " STONED: " I think I can see clearly now. " SPONGE: " Tweet! Tweet! Jumpball, Jumpball! " WARPATH: " My God, what a dingbat! " COOL RHEA: " Sponge must be a Junior. " BIG MAC: " Wait a minute. " COOL RHEA: " Wait-a-minute! " WARPATH: " Wait-a-minute! " THURSDAY: " There seems to be some confusion here. Let ' s move to a fan and see what has happened. Sir, what ' s your name. " FAN: " Bobby Objective. " THURSDAY: " Mr. Objective, what happened here? " B.O.: " It seems that Mr. Sponge made a few bad calls! " THURSDAY: " How many? " B.O.: " All of them. " THURSDAY: " What else? " B.O.: " The West Side people seem to be playing too rough. " THURSDAY: " What do you mean? " B.O.: " Cool Rhea ain ' t cool. " .THURSDAY: " Oh, I see. " The Senior pyramid goes the way of the Senior team. B.O.: " The North Side group were a little . . . " Juniors run an end around FADE OUT Aggressive in their play, all in all it was a good powder-puff game that was fairly evenly matched. After the exchanges, the conclusion was reached that the game should continue in the spirit of good, clean competition. The final score was 2-0 in favor of the North Side. 35 Marcia Lyell Pep 9, 10, 11, 12; 4-H 9, 10, 11, 12; Science Club 9,10, 11; Basketball 9, 10, 12; Drama 9, 10, 11, 12; Chess 12; Softball 12; Library Asst. 10.

The happy faced Seniors show their eagerness to get out of GHS. Claire Hayes is congratulated for an out¬ standing 12 years of work. r-i At the first meeting of the S.B.A. , the radical faction of the CAVALIER Staff deter¬ mined that this year ' s annual would be unlike anything that Gloucester had ever seen. They decided that it would truely reflect the at¬ titudes, aspirations, frustrations and griev¬ ances of the student body. They agreed that it wouldn ' t be coated with the syrupy sweetness of past annuals. Enthusiasm ran high as the ad sales began. Staffers received the conscientious support from the businesses advertised in this book. Staff members sincerely appreciate this patronage. Advisers: Vaughan Boatwright, Don Miner Business Manager: Carl Bruton Editors: Gene Flipse; Gerry Wass. Perhaps the most difficult part of their task was still ahead of them. They had to choose a theme. Someone suggested " The Way We Were " . A radical sitting in the back yelled " Inside Prison Walls " . Suddenly the party faction of the staff burst into the room, late as usual, and the idea " poured " from their collected minds. After the major decision had been made the entire staff decided they needed a vacation. With the first deadline months away they saw no reason to rush. When the work actually began early in the spring, the staff, which had reflected the overcrowding of the rest of the school, began to lose members. Many seniors found that outside employment was more rewarding than staff meetings. As our well organized staff diminished in size, struc- Typist: Alvin Spencer, Freda Hess Typical Organization 52 ture broke down and staffers who thought they were on the copy staff found themselves doing layout and typing. In the late spring meetings were scheduled three and four nights a week. Staff members began to stumble into classes with glazed eyes (because they were tired!). Mr. Miner and Mr. Boatwright began to have severe attacks of sleeping sickness. Deadlines came and went. Exams kept some people away from meetings but the staff still struggled to get in the final pages. After exams, with over 50 pages to go, Gene Flip- se, co-editor, Matt Luoma, photography edi¬ tor, and John Fayhee, Sports editor resigned, leaving the staff severely crippled in the last crucial moments of production. Gerry Wass, and Denise Rhea with the assistance of next year ' s staff responded by showing their deter¬ mination to complete a quality book. Our special thanks to Susan Fary, Stanley Mc¬ Mullen, Ronald Davis, Diane Robinson, and Hortense Brooks for their assistance this year. I would like to add my personal thanks to Mr. Adams, Jr. for the use of this room and to Mr. Miner for his dedicated assistance.

The class of ' 75, presided over by Le- ann Deal and sponsored by Mrs. Ester Knox, is 180 strong. To a Junior, the highlight of the year is receiving the rings. The rings arrived in mid-No¬ vember and to celebrate, the class spon¬ sored a dinner dance at the Bena Yacht Club. The band. Free Ride from Mid¬ dlesex, provided excellent music for the happy Juniors. Prom funds were raised by selling drinks during football and basketball games. Candy, sold door to door and M M ' s sold in school added to the growing treasury. During Homecoming week the class co¬ sponsored the Mr. Football dance held after the game. Our theme, ROAST THE JACKETS, and a class full of people willing to stuff chicken wire for four nights gave us an uncontested first place in the parade. Pearl one, knit two Crowding is no major problem for the Juniors and will be less a problem next year because of early graduation. The remaining Juniors are looking forward to next year and the thought of only one more year to go.

The stresss and strain of the week seemed to have gotten to many people, as they had to hold onto somebody to keep from falling. Homecoming— But there had to be more than that to explain this phenomenon, since some people were in such a hurry to get to the dance, that they forgot their pants! The band, Lava, almost didn ' t get in because it was rum- 66 ored that Larry Arnold was a member. Fortunately, the problem was solved when it was discovered that it was only a bear. Everybody came away smiling--whether they wanted to or not. Mr. Football Dance ’74 Will whoever pulled the plug on the radio please put it back in? Let ' s play football.

" The History of Rock 0 Roll " comes to GHS with Jim Connally Dancing to the music of Lava- Brad doing his 3 dog night imitation. Harvest Moon Dance Everyone had a good time. The band shows it ' s stuff. In Concert On May 30th talented students and faculty members volunteered their services to raise money for the Maurry C. Davis Scholarship, which is awarded each year in memory of Maurry Davis who taught at GHS from 1966 until his death, February, 1972. The only rehearsal was chaotic. Acts seemed to take forever to set up and tune their instruments. Ms. Zachary and Mr. Spano frantically tried to get the show organized and by the end of the last act they were both ready to call the whole thing off. Surprisingly, when the curtain opened at 7:45, all the confusion subsided and the entire program came off without a hitch. Student talent was diverse which kept the tempo of the show constantly chang¬ ing. Between acts the audience at¬ tempted to outdo the performers. Unfortunately, near the end of the night, a number of thefts damp¬ ened the spirit of the sponsors; but it didn ' t detract from the success of the program. On June 8th, the scholarship was awarded to Joni Saunders. Paul Rilee Sings. One of John ' s Many talents The Brown Stregal Stomp. 83 A 289th note run! You wouldn ' t—you would!

The Senior class finally gets to march in. ADMINISTRATION County Administration This year was marred by a misunder¬ standing between some of the teachers at GHS and the administration. The teachers presented to the School Board a list of extra-curricular activities which were not, but in their opinion, should have been given supplemental pay. The Administra¬ tion failed to see the teacher ' s point of view and refused to grant the extra pay. The teachers decided not to perform any extra duties until paid for them. This would have meant no prom, no annual and no spring activities. Some parents showed concern by attending the School Board meet¬ ing and speaking for the teachers. Both sides compromised in that the teachers agreed to do the activities if the School Board would reconsider the supplements. As has been seen, the activities did con¬ tinue. The administration gave supple¬ ments to most of the activities that re¬ quested them.The teachers felt, however, that the administration did not act in good faith, however, as only token supplements were given. D.M. To the average student, the county school administration is far away, and not ter¬ ribly important. Also, the average stu¬ dent, at least at GHS is apathetic for the most part. For these reasons, the stu¬ dent response to this issue was very in¬ teresting. Many students were worried about the curtailment, of activities, but there was interest for more reason than that. The students were very quick to de¬ clare support for the teachers cause, and if the measure had not gone through, a general student strike might just have come off. That tends to say something about how students feel about the Super¬ intendent and the school board.

Briggs Principal Mrs. Howard Accountant Mr. Herbert Cox Ass ' t Principal The student body of GHS 1973-74 would like to salute the vice- principal, Herbie Cox, for his unflaging pursuit of life, liberty, and justice. Not only has he con¬ tinually assaulted the bastions of public perversity by ruthlessly enforcing the school ' s anti-bra- less and no-midriff policy, but, above and beyond the call of duty, he has saved the school count¬ less dollars by investigating the just cause of many students ' ab¬ sences and early dismissals. Who can blame the poor, overworked fellow if he occasionally assaulted the integrity of honest students who weren ' t skipping class? Mrs. Fanning Secretary For keeping vagrants and no-count winos out of the halls and out picking up paper where they belong, for his tireless, if somewhat ineffectual inspections of school maintenance problems, for his tastefully conservative suits and fine quality ties, we feel he deserves our most heartfelt applause.

My ’54 Ford was looking mighty fine and Mary Lou looked almost as nice. We were just out riding, looking for some hot action. We were heading down towards the low¬ er end of the county. And then I remembered. So, I wheeled my wheels into the " Grease Freeze” and headed back up the county. I remembered that that night there were big doings at the alma mater. So, Mary Lou and I decided to make the scene. The Grease What, more fans? Things was as usual. Rilee was over in the corner with his comb.

Mrs. Long U.S. History Radical changes have occured in the social studies department, based upon experience from last year. The world history cirriculum is divided into quarters, while the U.S. History is taught in 4 1 2 week units. The change in teachers and environment would seem to result in confusion, but the students, benefiting from varied techniques, greet the system with enthusiasm. Ap¬ parently the department feels that seniors do not need this sort of stimulation, because no such program is provided in government (although there is a class taught by two teachers in the same period). An attempt is being made by the department, headed by Don Miner, to liberate the students from conservative social studies tableau, but it is hindered by the restrictions of art¬ ificial deligniation of course subject.

Senior-Faculty Basketball Game The Senior cheerleaders get it together. In a hotly-contested game ended by the bell, the Senior team beat the faculty by the score of 44-42. Talent be¬ ing about equal, the difference seems to have been the coaching staff. The Seniors had the superlative coach¬ ing of Ed Thornton, while all the faculty team had was coaches. The crowd was decidedly one-sided, although the faculty did have two or three fans. Strangely enough, they were all on the faculty bench. 114 Hey, Mr. Johnson, what ' s the name of this game again?

The game was highlighted by outstanding play and seri¬ ous errors. Comedy was provided by Mary Witt ' s pitching and Mr. Cox ' s batting. The final score was a triumph for the fa¬ culty, 14 to 8.

Concert Choir Girls Ensemble Choir 126 The Director ' s Award for outstanding musical con¬ tribution to the Choral dept., also a new honor was awarded to Renee Johnson. The 73-74 school year has been a growing one for the Gloucester High School Choral Department. The fac¬ ulty addition of a full-time Choral Director, Mr. Don Sandridge, has been the vital start for a growing Choral Music Program. The Concert Choir has grown not only in size but in musical knowledge, repertoire, and enthusiasm. This group performed in Fall and Spring Concerts, Commencement exercises, and selected groups per¬ formed for P. T. A. and Civic Organizations ' s meet¬ ings. Thru auditions 5 members of this group were selected to participate in District VIII All Regional Chorus, also 3 members were selected as alternates. There were also 9 freshmen selected for Distriect VIII Work¬ shop Chorus the same weekend. The Girls Ensemble Choir, an all womens group, participated in school programs and the Spring Con¬ cert. A group of 10 students from the Choral Dept, were selected by Mr. Sandridge and sponsored by Civic Organizations to attend Virginia State Music Camp in June at Massenetta Springs. In the spring several awards were presented to outstanding students. Re¬ ceiving the outstanding Senior Awards, voted upon by their classmates were Reginia Pryor and Donnie Jackson. Mildred Byrd and Cathie Cottee were award¬ ed the Coveted Fred Waring Award for total excellence and musical participation. This is the first time this award has been presented at G.H.S.

A good bit of this is directly the fault of the president, Gerry Wass, for not excercising the power of the presidency more vigorously. Ideas simply were not forthcoming from the club in the areas of school service, and exe¬ cutive ideas like planting azaleas in front of the school received objections on the basis of physical labor involved. We did manage to increase the size of the club substantially, send a number of delegates to the District 760 Interact convention, and provide limited assistance with the rabies vaccination drive sponsored by the Rotary Club. In spite of this gloomy picture, the possibility exists for an active club in the future. Vital to that goal is having a presiddnt who is not involved in a large number of other school activities, in¬ creasing the club size further, to include hard-working people.

" Resolved: That the federal government should guarantee a minimum annual income to each family unit. " The Debate Club The topic for the year was government takeover of welfare, and it proved to be a good one for Gloucester, as the Debate team had by far the best season in GHS history. The varsity teams of Dischinger Fayhee, Zahn Wass attended five tournaments prior to the District tournament, and compiled impressive records against mostly AAA schools. At the tourna¬ ment sponsored by Maury High, Joe and John brought home the trophy for first place affirma¬ tive. At District the affirmative team took first, and Peter and Gerry second. But both teams bounced back at the Regional competition the next week to take two firsts, each team having a 3-0 record. In debate competition, there are always problems to be had with incompetent judges. The problem plagued Joe and John at the State tournament, but they still brought home a trophy for third with a 5-2 record. In the negative division, Peter and Gerry claimed sec¬ ond with a 6-1 record, losing only to arch-rival Lord Botetourt, and by a very close decision. The novice teams of Olivia Chamberlain Thomas Griffin, and Ray Barnes Bill Morgan, deserve a great deal of credit. They debated in the tough switch-side competition at Madison College and in the District tournament, and had verv respectable records. Our thanks to Miss Ward and especially to Mr. Miner for putting up with us enough to pro¬ vide transportation and judging. Griffin listens intently to the opposition. " and the negative team has failed to bring up any evi¬ dence to this point, so we win that argument. " Ray Barnes outlines his attacks. Oh no! Where did I put that._.evidence?

The function of the S. C. A. is to be a medium between the administration and the student body. This was a- chieved at the car bash when they let the students bash their favorite, or not so favorite, teachers name in. The student body came up with 50 £ twice to help the S. C. A. (and get out of class for 2 1 2 hours) when the movies " Bullit " and " Mary, Queen of Scotts " were shown. The S. C. A. continued the Court of Appeals and the tradition of buying the AFS students a yearbook. The flowers for homecoming were also furnished by the S.C.A. Guess who feels " good all under? " Face the Nation? The The 73 74 Knightly News staff. The last school term was a very important one for the school newspaper. First of all, the paper got the new name of " The Knightly News. " In essence, not only the name but the paper altogether is new. The old paper ( " The Two- Edged Sword " ) was dissolved last year and this new staff formed. Last year only one untitled issue of the new paper was printed. So early this year, the new name was adopted upon a student suggestion. The staff members soon acquired the practical knowledge of how to run a newspaper, and the quality picked up greatly. But probably the biggest event of the year for the paper was the acquisition of a printing press. No longer would layouts be sent to be printed for much expense and trouble. " The Knightly News " often lacked the satirical or critical conflict previously present, but it has been built in¬ to an efficiently run and money-making operation. 148 Editor-in-chief, Beth Dixon Photographer Luoma tries to butter up Mr. Tyson, faculty sponsor.

Varsity Football the ' 73 Varsity Football Team the ' 73 Varsity Football Team Coaches of the ' 73 Varsity Football Team Palmer Morgan Mullins Holstrom Debolt Johnson 156 The 1973 football season was entered with an air of optimism. The Dukes appeared to be a formidable team indeed. Practice began in mid-August with team spirits running high. After two weeks of practice, the Dukes took the field against New Kent in a pre-season scrimmage. The Trojans went home with a 6-0 triumph as Coach Mullins gave all of his gridders a piece of the action. Tensions ran high as Gloucester entered the first game. Suffolk 13 Gloucester 0 The players appeared dead as they took the field. The home fans had come out to see the Dukes against the highly-touted Red Raiders. The first quarter was see-saw for the most part. Midway through the second quar¬ ter the game was determined. It was fourth down with Norbert Bame back to punt. The ball was snapped over his head, and, although Bame recovered, the Radiers had 1st and goal. Two plays later Suffolk QB Garfield Mizzell scampered over for the score. The last half was again see-saw, but Suffolk tallied late in the game against Gloucester reserves. The primary reason for defeat was lackluster offense that could only muster 59 yards and 2 first downs. Gloucester 18 Windsor 6 Still stinging from Suffolk, the Dukes of Gloucester avenged their loss against their rival Dukes of Windsor. On the first play William Sparks ran 85 yards for a TD. The offense was greatly improved since Suffolk, with QB Dave Burnette hitting 7 of 9 attempts. Southampton 48 Gloucester 6 The Indians played like the state champions they ended up being while the Dukes played like helpless babies. The only bright spot was last year ' s 2nd leading scorer in the district, Donnie Jackson, scoring his first TD of the year, via a Dave Burnette aerial. Also, Joe Dischinger, in his first start ever, played well at safety. The most disheartening part of the loss was the loss of Sparks for the year, as on the games 2nd play, he frac¬ tured his leg. Gloucester 14 Central of Sussex 0 This game featured several season-influencing changes. First, was the loss of set-back Bryan Belvin in prac¬ tice for the year. Second, was the change at quarterback from Burnette to Senior John Fayhee. Third, was the emergence of an extra point kicker in Bame. Bright sports of the game included the running of the entire backfield, especially Wayne Chapman and Jackson, the 4 for 8 passing of Fayhee, the flawless pass blocking of the offensive line, andBame ' s overall play. Bame played devastating defense, had a 62 yard punt, and went 2 for 2 in extra point kicking, and Jackson hauled in another TD pass. Gloucester 7 John Yeates 0 Elation. That ' s what filled the Gloucester locker room after this crucial encounter. As the score would in¬ dicate, the game was a defensive battle, the only TD coming on a 20 yard romp by fullback Wayne Spencer. Spencer took a putch left from Fayhee, broke away from two would be tacklers, and trotted unmolested into the end zone. The game featured the Dukes finest defensive performance of the year. Spearheading the de¬ fense was, of course, 40, Donnie Jackson. Gloucester 31 Northampton 12 Gloucester 49 Matthews 7 These were of course lopsided games, but featured several key asepcts. Jackson scored 42 points in these games, while Bame hit 7 for 7 extra points. Defense played well, and offense, well, look at the scores. Making their first starts, also were ends Scott Edmonds, and Jay Sleeper, both excellent blockers. West Point 17 Gloucester 0 The game was knotted at zero at the end of the first half, but the pointers built up momentum in the second half and blew the Dukes off the field. Again, lack of offense was the Dukes undoing. Bright spots on of¬ fense were the blocking of tackle Thomas Griffin and the running of set back Jackie Cooper. On defense, safety Keith Healy netted 21 unassisted tackles. Gloucester 39 Forest Glen 14 Gloucester 47 Smithfield 20 Again, somewhat lopsided. The season ended on a bright note, anyway. Bright spots against Forest Glen were Jimmy Johnson ' s first two TD ' s, the Dukes J. V. backfield seeing action, and Burnette ' s passing. Against the Packers, Donnie Jackson and Jackie Cooper provided a 1-2 knockout punch never before wit¬ nessed in Gloucester history. Jackson exploded for 32 points while Cooper amassed 171 yards rushing on 12 a ttempts. Mark Booker played stalwart defense. In summary: The Dukes finished 7 and 3 for the season. Not as good as expected. A few players have been mentioned for superior spot play. Several players played great all season and were not mentioned. These are co-captains Brad Newbill (tackle) and Moses Pollaid (linebacker), second leading scorer Wayne Spencer (fullback), and perhaps most of all, linebacker-guard Ed Thortnton. These players provided consistent quality play and team leadership. All district selections from the Dukes included Jackson at linebacker and tailback, Cooper at free-safety, and Thornton at linebacker. I shouldn ' t have bought these shoes!

Under the watchful eye of Miss Yvonne Brickhouse, senior Mary Witt led the team in scoring and to a 7-1-2 record. Lack of transportation and even less equipment didn ' t deter these hustling young ladies in rolling over their opponents. Enthusiasm was at the highest level it has been in years as was indicated by the large number of aspirants who tried out for the team. The team scored a total of 15 goals in defeating teams from York, Woodrow Wilson of Portsmouth, Walsingham, and West Point. Loosing only to Hampton Roads Academy, the team terminated the season by participation in the Regional Field Hockey Tournament at The College of William and Mary. Certainly Mary Will and Lori Moorman will be missed due to graduation, but with 11 experienced players returning, the team expects to go undefeated next year. " Cynthia, the flat side of the stick !

Lining up for the next event. You ' re beautiful, Moses. Anticipation was high for one of the best season performances of the Dukes track history. Amassed was one of the finest collections of talent in several years. Re¬ turning were state contenders Moses Pol¬ lard, Harold Jones, Matt Luoma, Don Adams, and Jackie Cooper. Adams was rated as one of the top pole vaulters in the Peanut District. Jones and Luoma had be¬ come formidable distance men. Defending his district and Regional crowns in the long, triple, and high jumps, and well as the 100 yd. dash, the 220, and mile relay was super-duper Jackie Cooper. Supporting him in the jumps and sprints, and well as being highly ranked in quarter-mile com¬ petition was Pollard. Expected to provide support to Cooper and Pollard in the spr¬ ints and jumps were Herbert Thrift, Eddie Burse, and William Brown. Bill Riley, Fosco Spinedi, Keith Rhea, Kevin Pan- chision, and Tommy Powell were to give depth to the distance men. Hopeful wright men were Harold Diggs and Norbert Bame. Promising hurdlers included Larry Arnold, Kevin Panchision and Phil Murphree. Be¬ cause of the fact that there was no girls track team, Beth Miller, Carla Smith, Pam Thrift, Betsy Williams and Carol Brooks ran with the guys, and thus pro¬ vided considerable encouragement. The Dukes suffered key injuries to Jackie Cooper and Matt Luoma early in the sea¬ son, however the team did go on to a 6-2 record, barely losing to Poquoson, not barely losing to Southampton, while sound- ley thrashing such opponets as Smith- field, Windsor, John Yeats, andJ.F.K. The team lost a close race for second in the Suffolk Invitational to Central, but came right back the next week to easily take second in the district competition. The suprise of the day was Keith Rhea, as he became district champion in the pole vault at 10 ' 6 " . At regionals the team managed a third place, thanks to the tire¬ less efforts of Cooper, Jones, and Adams. Kevin jumping hurdles Almost there!

Keep on truckin ' On May 23 the bell rang to go to 1st period. Ap¬ proximately 1 3 of the student body didn ' t show up in class. They had decided to walk-out. An annual staff survey showed that most of the par¬ ticipants didn ' t know why they walked out. Others wanted to get out of class and have a cigarette. The few remaining had a valid cause; wanting a student on the school board and changing of the 30 day failure rule. They also felt Mr. Cox was sus¬ pending students excessively. They wanted the dress code revised and what the parking lot money was used for. Many spoke out with intelligence in genuine con¬ cern while others spoke with ignorance and in rid¬ icule. Mr. Briggs, as soon as the stiuation became ap¬ parent, spoke over the intercom and asked all teachers to give a simple quiz so that the students who walked out would receive a zero. He also asked for a list of all persons who missed 1st period to be sent to the office. Mr. Briggs then went to talk with the students. Mr. Briggs tried to reason with the group. This was difficult because there was no recognized leadership. As the confrontation contin¬ ued Chuck Bridges and Harold Green seemed to emerge as the leading spokesmen. Mr.Briggs and the group limited themselves, at that time, to the 30 day rule. Mr. Briggs passed the responsibility to the superintendent. Chuck then suggested that the group go to see Mr. Blanks. Mr. Blanks sug¬ gested the regular school board meeting. However, this was two weeks away and the students demanded immediate action. Approximately 150-200 students then loaded into cars and trucks. Caution was thrown to the wind in the procession to the Court House. Chuck Bridges, Tommy Holland, Matt Slavin, Andy Brown and others went into Mr. Blanks ' s office. He threatened suspension of all students and informed the speakers that any revision of rules needed to go the School Board. Also any student on the School Board would have to come for the Board of Tmstees. A list of complaints was left and the students then went to see Mrs. Lanciano (School Board Member). Mrs. Lanciano set up a meeting at GHS that night night at 9 p. m. Mrs. Lanciano, Mr. Hayes, Mr. Ward, (all of them School Board members) attended. Mr. Ralph Johnson, for the superintendent ' s office, Mr. Briggs and Tommy Holland, Chuck Bridges, Kippy Johnson, Scott Edmonds, Kenny Trainham also attended. The meeting was quiet and orderly. The students presented their views which were re¬ ceived favorably by the Board Members. Now listen up! On the way to the schoolboard office. Who else out here is on the football team? At this meeting, nothing seemed to be accomp¬ lished. The School Board asked the students to back the budget and they, in turn would back the stu¬ dents views.

Many of these were a direct result of overcrowding; i.e., student disgust with large, re¬ pressive classes, with senseless un¬ necessary rules, and regimentation. However, the future may hold the ans¬ wer to GHS ' s problems. The future, a new high school, is slowly taking shape on Short Lane Road. The new High School is intended for the growing popula¬ tion of Gloucester County. The school should provide a better education and offer more courses to prepare each student for life outside the school walls. It may be noted, however, that the same people that ran this school will run the new school; old dogs learn slowly, if at all. Also, the same students that at¬ tended the old school will attend the new one, perhaps causing the same pro¬ blems, only on a larger scale. However, with change comes hope and hope and hard work go a long way. Once you get into this new school, this may be your last glimpse of the sun. These halls may soon be running over. Momma!

We ' ve tried to establish some new trends, and to generally reflect the true story of the year. Contro¬ versy is exciting, and this annual has plenty which is controversial. So sometimes in the production of this annual we have become a bit too excited, and gone a little farther than perhaps was necessary. If we have slandered anyone, we are sorry.

If you are an¬ noyed at our cover, please realize that this is very much a part of the year for many students. The truth can be temporarily ignored, but it is still there. When we put to¬ gether this book, we were working under the shadow of a previous yearbook which dis¬ gusted many people because of its " icky-poo " presentation. Students can’t really be blamed for their failure to support this year ' s annual if they expected another such an¬ nual. So why should we produce an annual with a pleasing moral tone because we fear those people who are not part of GHS. The purpose of an annual is to tell the true story of the year, like it or not. Not the story as seen by principals, superintendents or school board members, but as the students saw it and lived it. If the truth hurts, learn a lesson from it. But there will always be those self-righteous people who will no doubt be shocked and offended, like the people who protested CATCHER IN THE RYE being used for an english book, so by this time next year . . . we may be running. i iii :?i M ?® “® B ® ,B ® B ®® , “ ’8 8BSlfiSB - am l 1 ; :;. ’ ' S sfc S§| 1 . 1 | jjf jaE||Fyffiji jspM 1 " . - « • — 1 ' ’y iL - : ' Wmmm JP r ••j 0mm mm JIB WT " Sm. ;jB i : i n Jj: - 2sf $g Sk JljjjsS .v, fPB ' — a ■ " • ' ' ' jft WBBf K ' KL 4 HR EQB -- y » ' g imR V «Ldfi fgj r V, ”
