Right On! As last year’s sophomores became this year’s jimiors, they found that it was indeed a clear slide to victory. In keeping with a win¬ ning tradition begun in ’71, the juniors be¬ came the winners of the 1972 Homecoming Spirit Week by capturing first place honors for the overall creativeness of their posters and by winning the student yell-out. The seniors, too, were recognized by the judges for showing a highly spirited attitude throughout the week. On Friday, their efforts won for them the title of the Most Enthusias¬ tic and Most Spirited Class. Although neither the sophomores nor the freshmen won a specific title, they proved themselves to be challenging oppositions for the upperclassmen. In its second year as a school event, the 1972 Spirit Week was markedly successful in strengthening enthusiasm and school pride. Its success was recognized by Coach Allen at the pep rally preceding the Homecoming Game when he commended the student body for their wholehearted support of the Governors.

Upper Right: McGovern is pleased as Wandra Mitchell and Mike Bulluek support him at the debate. Center: Senior government students tackle the fundamentals of the voting machine. Lower right: J. Kenneth Robinson announces peace agreement in Viet Nam is at hand. In December 1970, the United States Supreme Court lowered the voting age to eighteen in federal elections. Congress and State Legisla¬ tures adopted the 26th constitutional amendment early in the summer of 1971, giving eithteen year-olds the right to vote in all elections. In the election year of 1972, an estimated 11.2 million people 18 to 21 years old had a piece of the action. This privilege was extended by the seniors to the underclassmen in a mock election. All procedures of an actual election were followed. Ricky Hancock, Jackie Clark, Carol- ynn Evans, Mike McCarthy, Pat Campbell, Edith Mawyer, David Proffitt, and Debbie Ponton comprised the eight senior coordinators who organized registration, campaigning, and demonstration of using the voting machine. On October 24, an assembly in the form of a press conference was held. Seniors representing the news media addressed questions to the presidential candidates. Mike Bulluek proxied for Sena¬ tor McGovern with the aid of Wandra Mitchell. Ricky Hancock with the support of campaign manager Joey Davis represented President Nixon. The throb of actual election drama was intensified when Congress¬ man J. Kenneth Robinson came to NCHS to deliver a non-political speech on October 26. He stressed the importance of knowing the views of the candidates. Voting was held on October 25 and 26 with the Allowing results: PRESIDENT U. S. Senator Socialist Party—Fisher and Gunderson. 13 Scott.121 American Party—Schmitz and Anderson. 15 Henderson. 24 Republican Party—Nixon and Agnew.280 Spong.324 Democratic Party—McGovern and Shriver....201 HOUSE 7TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT Robinson.190 Williams.116 14 15 Top center: Coach Allen and football players respond to “I see a Governor.” Lower left: Beanie Campbell takes a rest from strenuous football practice to pose for the year¬ book.

Meanwhile, another fire was going on the track as the bonfire warmed hands and aroused spirits with the cheerleaders leading cheers for victory. The football game with Staunton River began to look bleak when fumbles and other mistakes robbed Nelson of any points in the first half. At the half, the score stood 8-0, in Staunton River’s favor. While the band played “For All We Know,” the Home¬ coming Court was introduced. The representatives from the freshman class were Theodora Jackson and Kathy Fitzgerald. Sophomore representatives were Brenda Clark and Phyllis Gaines. The junior class was represented by Rosemary Roberts and Rhonda Briggs. From the senior class were Carol Briggs, Carole Craddock, and Gwen Ferguson. Patsy Parr, last year’s homecoming queen, and Mr. Bloomer crowned Gwen Fergu¬ son amid shouts from her fellow cheerleaders. After the scary first half, the second half was a pleasant sur¬ prise. Excitement began to mount in the fourth quarter when Nelson made a comeback of twelve points. Still behind by two, Steve “Goldentoes” Knight kicked a field goal and edged Nel¬ son ahead by one, 15-14. The Governors, making two more touchdowns in the last minutes, confirmed the Nelson victory. The Homecoming Dance held the following night was spon¬ sored by the cheerleaders. The dance had as its theme “We’ve Only Just Begun.” Music was provided by “Virgin Forest” from Lexington. The queen and court were again introduced; while the theme song played, they danced with their escorts. Homecoming 1972 was officially over at 11:30 p.m. on Sat¬ urday night, but memories will continue to keep it alive.

HIGHLIGHTS OF HOMECOMING 72! 19 BLACK CULTURE IS DISPLAYED AT NCHS The theme “Togetherness” highlighted Black History Week. The bulletin boards fixed by the Black History Committee, Rhonda Briggs, Brenda Johnson, Janet Aw- kard, Pam Scott, Wanda Mitchell, Russell Dillard and Joseph Randolph colorfully dis¬ played the theme from February 12-16. Speakers for the week included Dr. Nathan Johnson, head of the Department of Desegre¬ gation at the University of Virginia, who spoke to government classes on the purpose of Black History Week. Black-white coexis¬ tence, respect, and friendship in addition to interracial marriages provided lively topics for discussion. The week’s preparations culminated in a program put on Thursday by the Black His¬ tory Committee. Speaking on Blacks in the Civil War was M. W. Thornhill, Jr. of Lynch¬ burg, Virginia. The program showed various aspects of the Black experience through po¬ etry, comedy, and music. The sponsor for Black History Week was Miss Ethel Reiter.

On May 26, 1972 the class of ’73 presented their prom to the seniors. The juniors had been working toward this goal since their freshman year when they began raising money. There was much activity behind the scenes. The deco¬ rations, refreshments, theme, and band committees started planning in the fall. Invitations were sent out two weeks before the night of the prom. Every junior devoted his time during the week of the prom, to decorating the gym, which was off-limits to everyone else. “Colour My World” a popular Chicago hit, was the chosen theme, and the gym was decorated accordingly. Entering on a walk-over bridge at the door, one saw an ordinary gym transformed into a ballroom for the occa¬ sion. Multi-colored streamers spanned the ceiling and met in the center, where a huge globe hung. Tables were dimly lit by the romantic aura of candlelight from home¬ made candles. In the rear of the ballroom, a large painted rainbow served as a background for picture-taking. “Chess,” one of the best bands available, provided the evening’s entertainment. The musical highlight arrived when the theme song, “Colour My World” was played. With the arrival of midnight came the end of another day and the 1972 prom. 23 ACTIVITIES AURORA WINS SECOND; FRENCH CLUB IS NORTHWARD BOUND In its first year at NCHS, the literary magazine, under the direction of Mr. George Buzzard, was submitted to the Virginia High School League last spring for criticism, suggestions, and a rating. On a scale of one to four, the magazine received a two, or excellent rating. This year’s edition of Aurora, under the supervision of Miss Ethel Reiter, was presented to NCHS in May. The contents consisted of poetry, short stories, and essays. Al¬ though the staff had desired a wider variety of creative writing, poetry was the primary submission. These works were submitted to the Aurora staff, where they were typed into anonymity. Then, a critique staff selected the best to be printed in the 1972-73 edition of Aurora. The magazine was co-edited by Dowman Couch and Wandra Mitchell. A Canadian vacation for approximately thirty mem¬ bers was the objective of the French Club this year. Meetings were primarily concerned with information about Canada and the trip which was planned for the Easter holidays. Problems of transportation, accom¬ odations, and a seeming lack of interest were to be con¬ quered before the club could visit Quebec and Montreal as planned. Besides money already in the treasury, the club needed additional funds. To help with finances, the club spon¬ sored a dance after the last football game and sold hot dogs during a basketball game. For the second consecutive year, the club sponsored a French dance in the spring. This dance provided a French atmosphere with French foods prepared by the classes and decorations like that of a French discotheque.

The answer at Nelson County High School to the ques¬ tions of “Who’s in charge here?” is the Student Coopera¬ tive Association. The miniature Congress of NCHS con¬ venes once a month in the cafeteria. On March 2, 1972, the S. C. A. passed a slate method for electing class officers. This went into effect for the first time during the fall elections. The 1972-73 S. C. A. concentrated its efforts on the ac¬ quisition of a new school sign to replace the present “bul¬ let-catcher.” A magazine drive held last year had not quite met the costs, so the drive was repeated this year starting April 3 and continuing through April 10. Money was also appropriated by three dances, one af¬ ter the first basketball game, the annual Christmas dance, and a Sadi Hawkins Dance. Still another fund-raising project was the sale of notepaper. Several charities were the object of S. C. A. concern. Working with the Honor Society, the S. C. A. sent $72 to a shoe drive in Richmond for needy children. The Santa Fund, working out of Charlottesville, was helped through homeroom collections to reach its $9000 goal. Looking homeward, the S. C. A. sent the Chess Club to Washington D.C. to participate in the National Tourna¬ ment. The damage done by water drainage to the new athletic field was mended by the Building and Grounds Committee, a sub-committee of the General Assembly. The sponsorship of the S. C. A. was undertaken this year by Mr. Don Drayer, due to the resignation of the in¬ cumbent sponsor, Mrs. Catherine Whitehead. First Row, L. to R.: A. Gordon, C. Ballowe, L. Bragg, M. Barber.

STUDENTS HONORED FOR OUTSTANDING WORK AT NELSON Troupe 2068 of the International Thespian Society made its first appearance at Nelson High in April of 1972. Eight charter members were formally initiated on May 17, 1972. The organization honors excellence in dramatics among high school students. Members are selected by a point system set up by the international governing board. Points are earned through participation in drama club ac¬ tivities and through acting, directing, or production assis¬ tance. Ten points are required for membership. The curtain was raised on the initiation of five new Thespian members on February 21, 1973. In the spring the troupe undertook direction of two one-act plays. The Earl H. Hamner, Jr. Chapter of Quill and Scroll was officially started May 12, 1972 when the spring tap¬ ping ceremony was held. The club honors students on the newspaper, yearbook, and literary magazine staffs. The 1972-73 members completed such projects as the ratification of a chapter set by-laws, the starting of a scrapbook, and the purchasing of Mr. Hamner’s books for the school library. Quill and Scroll’s money-maker for the year was a presentation of a variety show entitled “The World of Nelson High Through the Back Door” on Feb¬ ruary 7. 30 On December 19, 1972, the Nelson chapter enter¬ tained at a Christmas social in the school library. The present members and also many past members were in attendance. The honor guest for the evening was Mrs. Doris Hamner of Schuy ler, Earl H. Hamner’s mother. The National Honor Society is an organization whose members are selected on the basis of academic record, leadership qualities, and character. With its membership consisting of five seniors and six juniors, this year’s club decorated the bulletin boards for the opening of school as they do every fall. Also the sen¬ ior cap bulletin board for graduation will be done with a cap for every graduating senior. Patricia Stratton had the duty of maintaining the school scrapbook in the library throughout the year. Every year the Honor Society awards a $100 scholar¬ ship to a non-member. To raise money for this certificate, the club obtained the film “The Raven’’ starring Vincent Price and showed it December 5 to the student body. Carlton Ballowe, Kirk Crady, and Lewis Bragg made up the panel that traveled to Roanoke twice and Harri¬ sonburg twice to compete in quiz shows. Out of four games, the boys won three.

Miss Nina Garrett, club sponsor, led an all-out at¬ tack on Arsenic and Old Lace, a three-act play by Joseph Kesserling, in early December. Try-outs for that comedy of innocent homocides were held in Oetober with approximately twenty people show¬ ing up to watch, and nearly fifteen more creeping timidly in to audition. The auditoruim was chilled by a lack of heat, and the hearts of those brave enough to try-out were frozen by sheer terror. Nevertheless, three young la¬ dies and eleven gentlemen salvaged roles and night-time practices began. In the beginning, rehearsals went smoothly because the stars-to-be were allowed to use their scripts. The two- hour practice sessions were often sparked with spon¬ taneous laughter and hilarious mispronuciations. At last came the time when all books were cast aside leaving those onstage to rely entirely on their memories. The sav¬ ing factor of all initial memory blanks was stage manager Edith Mawyer who was often found responding to the question “What’s my line?” Throughout weeks of prac¬ ticing, all efforts were directed toward 8:00 p.m. on the nights of the 7th and 9th of December. Arsenic and Old Lace was laughed about, talked about, quoted for two weeks afterwards and hailed as “Bully! Just bully!” Proceeds from both performances went to¬ ward new stage equipment, make-up, and other theatri¬ cal necessities.

GOVERNORS GAZETTE INITIATES CHANGES In its third year of revival, the Governors Gazette re¬ turned full of surprises. Kirk Crady, aided by the newspa¬ per’s sponsor Miss Driskill, led the staff as editor-in-chief. There were several new additions to the regular fea¬ tures such as “As I See It” by Joseph Randolph and “Run¬ ning the Race with Rabbi” by Mike Bulluck. Wilson Jones created “Bullet”, the comic strip and “Dear Ade¬ line” counseled the lovelorn. The uniformity of last year’s advertisements even became diversified as Wilson Jones added a touch of his artistic abilities. Also new to the scene was “The Governors Gazette Sports Award” which recognized deserving and outstanding athletes. Completed issues of the paper underwent various stages of grooming before being circulated by a thirty member staff. Assignments were given out, typed, proof¬ read, fixed as galleys, fit to the correct pages and then sent to the Amherst Publishing Company for the final result. The Governors Gazette is an exceptional newspaper and deserves much applause. Last year’s paper received a second place rating by the Virginia League in the publi¬ cations category. 1 ifl k rl ii J First row, L. to R.: Wandra Mitchell, Frances Allen, Hazel Smith, Yvonne Miller, Barbara Whitehead.

Since 1969 the yearbook had been in the sad state of financial insecurity because of a seemingly insur¬ mountable debt. To gain support from the community, the staff set out selling ads to local businessmen in Au¬ gust. This venture succeeded in gaining more support than ever and freed the staff from the financial threat. While the late arrival of an editor’s kit impaired initial production, the staff’s major setback was the lack of a camera. To solve this problem, the staff sponsored a dance “Saturday in the Park” on September 16, and en¬ gaged a gratis band performance by Beany Campbell, Perry Campbell, James Campbell, Wayne Irving, Marvin Barber, and Alfred Trapp. Until one could be bought, the staff tracked down and borrowed the best camera around, a Minolta SRT-101, belonging to Coach Allen Sprinkle. With an instruction booklet and a wealth of enthusiasm, the novice photogra¬ phers were found lying on the floor or climbing to the roof for an interesting shot. After the hustle of preparing for the coronation of Mr. Yearbook, the staff recessed to spend a day at Monticello before scrambling to meet the final, March 2, deadline. While production for the 1973-74 Governor began on March 3, the spring brbught warmer weather and a slower pace to the staff. For their final fling, the staff went to Washington, D. C. to celebrate the blooming of the cherry blossoms. 37 CAREERS, CULTURE, AND LEADERSHIP INTEREST STUDENTS Upper Left: The Future Business Leaders of America Club.

The program included a November visit by Mrs. Carol Minx from Waynesboro Community Hospital, an address in December by Miss Eden from University of Virginia Hospital School of Practical Nursing, a speech in March by Dr. Miriam Birdwhistle, Director of Social Service at UVA, and an April address by Mrs. Dorothy Marshall from Lynchburg General Hospital School of Nursing. The Future Teachers of America, sponsored by Mrs. Shirley Wright, remembered local teachers during exam workshop days by giving a tea January 30 for all teachers at NCHS. Throughout the year, junior and senior mem¬ bers were allowed to observe classes in local elementary schools. The year closed with the presentation of a hun¬ dred dollar scholarship to a future teacher. The Future Business Leaders of America sponsored a candy sale in the fall to raise funds for baskets for needy families at Christmas. The big event of the year occurred when the club, accompanied by sponsor Mrs. Sharon Hughes, traveled to the FBLA Regional Club at Long- wood College, Farmville. Members competed in the spelling test, and Mr. FBLA and Miss FBLA contests. Beginning in 1965, Project Opportunity directed by Mr. Russell Ingersoll, is now in its final year. This year, students saw E. G. Marshall in “Macbeth” at Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Theater in Richmond. Project Class of 1973 was responsible for setting up a student informa¬ tion center in the library which provided a personal guid¬ ance and career information. A new club, organized by Mr. James Garwood in coop¬ eration with the Tri-Hi-Y club, was bom into the family of clubs at NCHS. Its purpose is “To create, maintain, and extend to the fullest capacity of one’s ability, high standards of Christian way of life, through involvement, brotherhood, equality, and service.” Front Row: Danny Henderson, Joyce Tucker, Cathy Hudson, Gloria Smith, Wayne Briggs, Pamela Scott, Janet AwKara, Levy careen, Mar¬ sha Taylor, June Brown, Emma Rose, Nancy Myers, Jerry Carter, Obea Glass, Helen Rodgers, Kate Crady, Phyllis Proffitt.

EXTRA CURRICULARS FILL LEISURE HOURS In early November, Mrs. Janet Rhode and her flock of faithful forensic followers trooped up to Winchester to a non-Virginia League meet sponsored by James Wood High School. Wandra Mitchell captured a first place in Girls Poetry Reading with her interpretation of “Snake” by D. H. Lawrence while Chuck Yarborough walked off with a second in Boys’ Prose Reading. His selection was entitled “In Love With Life,” a How It Would Be if I Were Dead, which was published in an Ann Landers column. In the November district meet, Wandra was awarded another first place for the poetic rendering of “Go Down Death.” Edith Mawyer, reading a selection by Langston Hughes, took away a third place in Girls Prose Reading. From there, Wandra Mitchell went to the regional meet where she placed second. The Debate Club of NCHS found itself rallying around a new leader again this year as Mrs. Emily Bruguiere took the speakers stand. The team attended the debate tournament at Longwood College in March. In com¬ petition on this year’s national topic “Federal Support for Education” the debate team did not come out on top, but it did make an excellant showing, one of which they can be proud. A loud, powerful voice is the only necessary quality one must own to be an active member of the Pep Club. There is certainly no doubt that these people possess this asset by the thunderous clamor they produce at Nelson’s games. The club doesn’t just cheer but is responsible for the welcome signs for NCHS opponents and has a hand in creating new cheers. El p U- • A: - - " V } r ' - ? ' ZTj : , Nc - A , .

C. “Checkmate!” This all too familiar exclamation pro¬ ceeds out of the mouth of a very triumphant individual, who, in his moment of joy, never fails to suggest a second game to the not-so-happy person sitting opposite him. Scenes of this nature recur during a single meeting of the Chess Club, one of Nelson’s newest organizations. And if the distressed loser begs for, and obtains mercy the two sit and stare at each other until one says that he has been analyzing the recent game. Then a long discussion fol¬ lows, during which both parties see who can keep from smiling the longest. In January, however, three of the club’s best players trooped off to Washington D. C. to participate in an in¬ vitational tournament. There, they played against other players from schools in the area encompassing much of Maryland, Washington D. C., and Virginia. A room full of pairs of people staring at what seems to be a checkerboard populated with upright figurines, is a scene depicting Nelson’s latest groove. Today the world, tomorrow Bobby Fischer! The Library Club is one of Nelson High’s most pro¬ gressive organizations. Under the conscientious direction of Mrs. Shirley Sullivan, approximately ten girls spend one half hour of their school day contributing to the ex¬ pedient operation of the school’s informational board. The club took field trips to the Nelson branch of the Jef¬ ferson-Madison Regional Library and in April they toured the library at Sweet Briar College.

Led onto the field by drum major, Bunk Dawson, the band had an added at¬ traction of an eighteen-girl flag corps. The corps con¬ sisted of twelve flash flags, a solo rifle, and two guarding rifles which, with the United States and Virginia flags, made up the honor guard, commandeered by Darlene Marshall. The band also performed with a refreshing va¬ riety of popular music. All these additions are attributed to a new director, Mr. Philip Green. Besides performing at Nelson football games, the band participated in two civic events during the fall: the li¬ brary opening in Lovingston on September 24, and the Shriners’ Parade in Lynchburg on October 21. The band won second place in a marching competition at Buena Vista on September 30. Completing their marching season, the band traveled to Washington and Lee University on November 18 to give a pre-game and half-time show. Hie Concert Band began its season by giving a Christ¬ mas Concert on December 14. The hours of practice and preparations culminated when the band went to Buffalo Gap for the District V Band Festival on March 17. The Solo and Ensemble Festival took place in Winchester on April 14. The Regional Band consisted of outstanding persons from different bands in the region performing to¬ gether in either the Concert or the Symphonic Band. Those representing Nelson were Brenda Banks, Kirk Crady, Bunk Dawson, Suzanne Eggleston, Roberta Floyd, Betty Gardner, Wendell Ponton, and Darlene Marshall.

Mrs. Delores Truesdale, director of the fifty-two mem¬ ber Nelson County High School Chorus, used a new ap¬ proach in teaching this year. Students studied music through the songs they learned instead of strictly through literature. The choir entertained their first audience of the year at the annual Christmas concert on December 17. The theme of the concert was “The Spirit of Christmas in Song.” Between December and May the chorus traveled. On February 16, 17, and 18, they performed at the District V Regional Chorus, held at Amherst High School. Last year’s Choral Festival ratings of 1, 2, and 2 + in difficult division allowed them to send nine singers to Re¬ gional Chorus competition this year. The students attend¬ ing were Denise Bryant, soprano; Patricia Tucker, Alice Irving, and Debbie Williams, altos; Reginald Toms, te¬ nor; Marvin Barber, baritone; Alfred Campbell, first bass; and James Campbell and Alfred Dotson, second basses. The next trip was March 24 to Elkton High School for the District V Choral Festival. At the last concert away from home, Marvin Barber, Reginald Toms, Denise Bry¬ ant, Michelle Stevens, Ira Toms, and Lillie Vaughan rep¬ resented Nelson at the Vocal Solo and Small Ensemble Festival at Montevideo High School on April 7. At their spring concert in May, the choir presented a program of totally modem and pop music. 47 BBHHI ■ GOVERNOR’S EXPLODE INTO 7-3 RECORD After a frustrating 1971 season, the Governors were out to redeem themselves this season. New imiforms, a new weight-training machine, and girl managers were among the many changes of the “New-Look Governors.” After suffering a big loss to Brookville and a squeaker to William Campbell, Nelson breezed past Jefferson Forest, 50-7. Nelson’s next foe was long-time rival Amherst who had grown to be a AAA school. The Lancers dominated the game, beating Nelson, 33-18. Then, the tide turned. Homecoming 1972 was the setting for Nelson’s next battle. Spirit Week, along with the defeat of Appomattox, 13-7, had lifted the spirits of both the team and the student body. The Governors came from behind to spoil Stau nton River’s hopes for an upset, by scoring 22 points in the last quarter, 14 of which came in the last fifty-four seconds. The final score was Nelson 22, Staunton River 14. The “New-Look Governors” were raising a few eyebrows around the district after winning three out of their last four games. Their next opponent, Rustburg was rated as the elev¬ enth in the state on the AA level. The Governors and the Red Devils battled it out for three quarters with Nelson holding a 20-14 lead at the end of the third quarter. But Rustburg scored early in the fourth quar¬ ter to even the score. The game seemed as if it would end in a tie until a late drive put Nelson in field goal range. With nine seconds showing on the clock, Steve Knight booted a 25-yard field goal to put out the Red Devil’s fire. Nelson was now the undisputed holder of second place in the district. The Altavista Colonels had their Homecoming spoiled when Nelson played there. The governors, having beaten Rustburg, Staunton River, and Altavista, had a reputation for winning Homecomings. Nelson dominated the game from the start. They were then guaranteed a winning season, having a 6-3 overall record. The Nelson County Governor’s final home game matched the red hot Governors and the AAA rated Liberty Minute- men. Nelson gave their best defensive effort by shutting out Liberty 30-0. Beany Campbell rushed for career high 207 yards in one night. The victory ended a very exciting season, giving Nelson a 7-3 overall record, the best record since 1968. 50 Front row, L. to R: R.

Head Coach Herman Allen s pre-sea¬ son confidence spread throughout the team and his prediction that the Governors would be the “surprise team in the district” became a welcome reality. Much of the team’s success was due to the effects of the coaching staff. Coach Allen was named “Coach of the Year” in the Seminole District in only his second year at Nelson. As¬ sistant coaches Vernon Wood and Jack Sellers did a fine job with the defensive backs, offen¬ sive ends, and linebackers while Coach Allen was in charge of the line. 52 Upper Left: The Governor Offense.

Beany Campbell, a junior tailback, compiled 1,129 yards rushing to become only the third in Nelson’s running back history to gain over 1000 yards in one season. He was also the district’s leading scorer and was named to the first team All-Dis¬ trict along with Senior Woody Farar, an offensive line¬ man. Kicker Steve Knight provided Nelson fans with some exciting moments by kicking the extra point that put Nelson ahead of Staunton River and the field goal that beat Rustburg. Sophomore Larry Rose broke off long TD rims of 71, 66, and 50 yards. Junior Keith Haywood broke loose for many long punt returns and pass com¬ pletions. Senior Tommy Harvey had a good year as quar¬ terback throwing important touchdown passes. On de¬ fense, Senior Linebackers Steve Bryant and Lewis Franklin provided the defensive squad with the lead¬ ership it needed. Linemen Tommy Johnson, Dewey Wood, and Michael Gaines did their best to torment the opposing quarterbacks and runners. In the defense back- field, Larry Rose picked off a few enemy aerials and re¬ covered some important fumbles, setting up winning touchdown. Behind the scenes were two courageous young ladies. Donna Branch and Jackie Collins did their part for Women’s Lib by becoming the first female managers of any varsity male sport at Nelson. They were always ready with tape, bandages, or ice packs to repair any injuries suffered by the players. The school’s scoring record was broken this year with 242 points for a 24.2 per game average. The defense al¬ lowed only 163 points for a 16.3 per game average. The entire team deserves recognition for an out¬ standing performance. 55 Front row, L. to R.: R. Ragland, T. Beverly, M. Gaines, T.

NELSON GOVERNORS CAPTURE HONORS Much to the dismay of their opponents, the Nelson County Governors recovered from last year’s 1-9 season to clench sec¬ ond place in the Seminole District with a mighty 7-3 record. The football season started off bleakly for the Governors but they quickly gained confidence and honors by winning their last six consecutive games. A distinguished second place was only the first of several awards for the Nelson Governors. Coach Herman Allen was named Coach of the Year by fellow coaches for the Seminole District and also for All Central Virginia. Five plavers were selected to the All-District football team. Named to the first team offense were Junior Halfback Beany Campbell, who gained over 1100 yards rushing and Senior Of¬ fensive Tackle Woody Farrar. Selected for the second team of¬ fense were Junior End Keith Haywood and Senior Center Mike McCarthy. Named to the second team defense was Senior Linebacker Lewis Franklin. Honorable mentions were given to Senior Field Goal Kicker Steve Knight, Senior Quarterback Tommy Harvey and Junior Fullback Ronnie Ragland. The Nelson Governors also won five places on the All Cen¬ tral Virginia team. The first team offense included Junior End Keith Haywood, Senior Tackle Woody Farrar, Senior Guard Ray Horsley, and Junior Halfback Beany Campbell. A first team defense position went to Senior Linebacker Lewis Franklin. Nelson County High School is proud of the Governors who gained 242 points for the season, a record of previous seasons. Although Nelson will lose thirteen seniors, expectations for the 1973 season are optimistic with sights set on a district championship.

JUNIOR VARSITY END WITH THE CHAMPIONSHIP With last year’s District Championship tucked under their belts, the Lieutenant Governor Football team, di¬ rected by Coach Charlie Bennett and Back Coach Charlie League, was consistent in becoming another suc¬ cess story in 1972. The starting line-up was composed of many eighth gra¬ ders; however, the outstanding performances of these in¬ dividuals made up for any looming inexperience. With team members like Tackles Vincent Powell and Charlie Thompson, the Jay Vees had the best defense in the district. The defense only allowed thirty points to be scored against them all season. The offense squad was not lacking either, as Quarter¬ back Marty Johnson, an eighth grade player, was the leading passer in the district. Besides the efforts of Johnson, Powell, and Thompson, other players such as Tall End Chris Scott, Halfback Lu¬ cian Lockett, Safety Mark Gamble, and Halfback T. B. Backer, gave the squad a 6-1 district record. With the best record in the district, the team automatically won the District Championship for the second consecutive year. 59 L. to R.: Gwen Ferguson senior; Betty Gardner, senior-captain; Debbie Morris, Junior co-captain; Kim Fields, sophomore; Sharen Allen, junior; Sedesta Woodson, sophomore; Mary Campbell, junior; Wendy Johnson, sophomore. ENTHUSIASM IS DISPLAYED BY CHEERLEADERS This was the year of change and renewal for the Var¬ sity Cheerleaders. The first noticeable renovation was the uniform consisting of a green pullover, gold blouse, and a green and gold plaid skirt. For pep rallies, the girls made a uniform green jumper to wear with a gold blouse. The squad learned many of its stunts and gymnastics, such as shoulder-standing, from a trip to cheerleading camp dur¬ ing August. On their first expedition to such a camp, the girls came away with second place honors in a cheer¬ leading competition. Practices began for two or three nights a week last June. During the school term, the girls found time to practice twice a week. When they were not working to stir up spirits, the girls entertained themselves by mod¬ eling the pajamas of the football players or throwing a pie at Mr. Bloomer. One source of the enthusiasm that the cheerleaders seemed always to possess was their new sponsor, Mrs. Nancy Morgan, whose interest kept the cheerleading squad on a high level of performance.

Practices began once-a- week in August and continued throughout the year. The squad went into action at 6:30 p.m. every Thursday dur¬ ing football season and every Tuesday and Friday during basketball season for the junior varsity games. Keeping the squad on their toes was Miss Becky Bane, sponsor. SPORT ACTIVITIES ARE EXTENDED Two new additions to the athletic spectrum of NCHS during the 1972-73 term were table tennis and golf. The Table Tennis Club, headed by Mr. Green and Mr. Davis, traveled to Raleigh, North Carolina to compete in the Butterfly Table Tennis Tournament, the first outside competition the club had seen. The group was entered into both Class-B and Class-A competition and was also required to umpire a match after they were defeated. The primarily spring sport of golf was revived again by Mr. Wood and Mr. Sprinkle. The nine players have two matches each against Rustburg, Altavista, Brookville, and Jefferson Forest. Since golf is in its first year, the team has little experience, but with mainly freshmen and sophomores composing this year’s group, future teams are certain to be stronger. 63 .

Carter, Coach Conni£j| THE GOVERNETTES SUCCEED IN FALL BASKETBALL With the excellent coaching of Miss Connie Nimmo, a wealth of team spirit, and efficient man¬ agement of Joan Hughes and Katrina Carter, this year’s girls’ basketball team became the best in six years. For the first time, the girls played a fall sea¬ son instead of a winter season. This gave them the gym whenever they needed it, and allowed Nelson to have a girls’ Junior-Varsity team this year. The season closed with a 7-4 record. This was the result of a combined team effort and two out¬ standing players, Lynette Miles, team captain, and Debbie Morse. Debbie had the highest number of rebounds and best percentage on foul shots. Ly¬ nette holds the state record of most field goals per game with an average of 17. 65 Lynette showed her skills in the t ournament game against Broadway, November 17. Nelson lost 66-53 and only played one game. In that game, Ly¬ nette scored 32 points which established a record for the most points during a game and the most points scored in the tournament. For her twelve field goals she took the record for the most field goals per game and the most field goals in the tour¬ nament. The Nelson girls competed in the North¬ western Tournament and only played in one game while others played several. That one gave Lynette the overall Central, Northern, Northwestern, and Western tournament record of most point made in a single game. This year’s team only had three experienced players. Only one of these was a senior, Martha Ir¬ ving; consequently, next year should offer a more experienced team and a very promising season. 66 Upper left: Coach Nimmo quickly briefs the team during a time-out.

The 1972-73 record was due to the team’s lack of height and experience. The Jay Vee team was coached solely by Mr. James Garwood who was in his first year at the job. Serving as co-captains were the team’s high scorers, KennyLaw- home, Frank Clark, and Leroy Napper. The Lieutenant Governors began an optimistic season with an impressive defeat over Parry McCluer, and fin¬ ished with a thirty-four point advantage. In that game, Leroy Napper scored a game high of 37 points. After losing five out of eight December games, the Jan¬ uary schedule contained a high level of performance, and was highlighted by close wins over Appomatox, Gretna, and Forest. The beginning of February was also the be¬ ginning of a decrescendo of four losses. The season closed with a two-point defeat at the hands of Staunton River. An exciting season is expected next year with many freshmen veterans returning with experience and drive. [as r 42 hLoI I so j if ■ rhm A n J Wk « pw wm 69 VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM RANKS HIGH With a lot of “new blood” in the line-up, and with determination to improve on last year s 4-15 record, the Nelson Governor basketball team with Head Coach Allen Sprinkle, charged into their 1972-73 season. The ambivalence of last year’s crowd and the fact that the 1971-72 team had been in last place in the district gave the squad reason to work on im¬ provements. Concentration, strong crowd support, and a powerful fast-break were successful in plac¬ ing Nelson, at the end of the regular season play, second only to Appomattox in the Seminole Dis¬ trict standings. Nelson’s fifteen wins this year equal¬ led the best basketball team record in the history of Nelson County High School. An addition to the coaching staff was rendered from the junior varsity team as Mr. Howard West joined Coach Allen Sprinkle as Assistant Coach. The Governors’ success was attributed to dedi¬ cated coaching, to an overall team effort, and to outstanding individuals led by William Napper, the state’s AA high scorer. Most home games were video-taped by Mr. Stark, Mr. Bloomer, and Mr. Bugg, so the team could review each game’s winning or losing factors. The camera was positioned in the gym’s new press box built by Mr. Price. L. to R.: L. Rose, D. Wood, A. Campbell, J. Smith, C. Scott, T. Beverly, W. Napper, J. Campbell, E. Martin, K.

However, their first district game against Rust- burg was lost by six points. Many of Nelson’s games were won or lost by a close margin, as was the case with games against Brookville, Gretna, and Amherst. Appomattox, the district’s first place team, and Amherst, non-district opponent, were the only teams to twice defeat the Gov¬ ernor squad in the 1972-73 season. The December games were indecisive to the team’s outcome. In eight games, the wins and losses were evenly divided. Then the team got going during a predominately home-game January schedule with the squad racking up five wins against only two losses. In the early part of Feb¬ ruary, Nelson joined Brookville and Rustburg in a struggle for second place. In their second game against the Bees, Nelson became the sole owner of a second place position with a 10-4 record since Brookville and Rus¬ tburg, having suffered defeats, consequently held 9-5 records. Nelson retained its second place throughout the final part of the regular season and gained five victories in as many games. 73 Upper left: The Governors listen with undivided attention to the voice of Coach Sprinkle.

In the first round of the tournament on February 20, Nelson played host to William Campbell, w ith more- than-capacity crowd. Close to the end of the first half, William Napper scored his seventeenth point of the game. The unique fact about this layup was that by scor¬ ing that point, William became the first player ever in the state of Virginia to score 1000 points by his soph¬ omore year. William averaged 27.7 points per game; however, Mr. Napper didn’t stop there. He went on to score the usual game high of thirty points. With the Gen¬ eral’s leading scorer out of the game, the Nelson Five had a relatively easy win, 70-46. The Governors then met the Rustburg Red Devils in the semi-finals at the Lynchburg College gym on Febru¬ ary 21. Nelson went one step further into the tournament than last year’s team and equaled last year’s feat by win¬ ning the Sportsmanship Award. In addition, William Napper was honored with a first team place on the All- District team. The Governor’s finished the season with a laudable 15-7 record. Coach Sprinkle, Coach West, and the entire team are to be congratulated not only on their award but also for an outstanding season of constantly improving perfor¬ mance. With the entire squad returning, fans can look forward to this year’s “inexperienced team” becoming next year’s district power. | : , ' f jl • ‘ yi?- : V - 75 W. Hudson, R Moon, T. Payne, G.

Ragland 4S THE STATE FINDS INDOOR TRACK “NUMBER ONE” This year Nelson continued to show its strength in the track scene with eleven wins and only two losses. The meets, which were held at the fieldhouse at Lynchburg College and at the VMI fieldhouse at Lexington, proved to be highly successful for the Nelson thinclads. This was proved by the fact that Nelson won all district meets and lost only two non¬ district meets to Waynesboro and to AAA Albermarle. The highlight of the season came when Nelson convincingly defeated all schools in the Seminole District Meet. The closest competitor, Brookville, was 37 points behind. The school records set during the season were: 330-yard dash by Richard Moon in 39.3 500-yard dash by George Woodson in 59.2 880-yard run by George Woodson in 1:57.2 880-yard relay by Richard Moon, Dexter Wells, Mike Timberlake, and Glenn Epps in 1:37.3 60-yard dash by Glenn Epps in 6.4 Shot put by Ronnie Ragland for 54’5” Triple jump by Glenn Epps for 43T0” Records which fell at the Seminole District Meet to Nelson athletes were: 500-yard dash by George Woodson in 61:6 Shot put by Ronnie Ragland for 53’8%” I ► ) I I Staunton River 10 Nelson 48 Liberty 30% Waynesboro 74 Nelson 105% Louisa 26 Rustburg 25% Altavista 47% Appomattox 4 E.

This win put them automatically into the regional meet in which they also placed first. After conquering the regionals, the team went on to be a runner-up in the state track competition. Outstanding individuals bringing home honors for themselves and for Nelson were record breakers George Woodson whose 4:26.2 miles set a new school record and made him state champion in the event, Larry Morse who set a school record in both the high jump and the long jump with jumps of 6’3” and 2l’8W’ respectively, and David Barber with a 44’6” effort and a school record in the triple jump. Both relay teams, the 880-yard and mile relays, took second place honors in the state. The 880-yard relay team, consisting of William Napper, Keith Haywood, Steve Beznick, and Perry Campbell had a school record of 1:31.9. With a time of 3:27.2, the mile relay team of Keith Haywood, Steve Reznick, Richard Moon, and Rus¬ sell Litchford also set school records. In addition to Head Coach Witt, the band of coaches consisted of Gary Bugg on hurdles. Jack Sellers on the shot and discus, and Herman Allen on sprints and relays. 79 CROSS COUNTRY PLACES FIFTH IN THE STATE Cross country, being a relatively new sport at Nelson, leaves a few at this school who don’t understand it. Cross country is a contest unlike most in that the low score wins. The contest is constituted by two or more teams running against each other on a set course which takes the runners over different types of terrain and ob¬ stacles, such as hills, forests, and creeks. The first five run¬ ners of each team receive the same points as the place they finish. For example, the first to finish receives one point, the second runner two points, and so on. After all the runners have finished and the points have been tabu¬ lated, the team with the least points wins. This year the Nelson harriers, coached by Mr. Eddie Witt, compiled an 11-2 record, losing only to AAA Lane and Laurel Park who ranked third in the AA state. The harriers took the district title easily since they were unde¬ feated in district competition. Nelson went on to the State Meet where they met tougher competition and placed fifth. Although the success of the Nelson harriers was largely due to excellent coaching and a great team effort, one in¬ dividual should be recognized. George Woodson was the No. 1 Nelson runner in all the meets and holds the school record for the Nelson course, which is a fast 2.3 miles. It is no doubt that George’s absence next year will be felt. However, with returning members such as Clark Jackson, Mark Garwood, and Wayne Hudson, Nelson still looks strong in the year to come. Upper center: NCHS Cross Country Track Team.

Diane Epps jumped 5’ to win the high jump, al¬ though she had jumped 5’4” in a meet with E. C. Glass. The relay teams improved more than any of the others. In the words of Miss Connie Nimmo, the team’s coach, the relay teams were “terrific.” They broke four school records. The 440 relay was broken by Lynette Miles, Martha Irving, Gwen Vest, and Sandra Murphy with a time of 55.2 record. A new record for the 440-yard dash was set by Alice Irving. The 880 medley was broken by Lynette Miles, Martha Irving, Gwen Vest, and Alice Ir¬ ving with a final time of 1:59.7. In addition to setting a record, Alice Irving received the track trophy for the hardest working athlete on the team. This year Coach Nimmo hopes the girls will compete in at least six meets rather than the three of last year. Training begins the first of March and she expects a turn¬ out of most of last year’s team plus some new girls to fill eighteen uniforms. 83 Upper center: The team works together.

These champions, coached by Mrs. Anna Leigh Greene, obtained an 8-2 season and tied for first place with Gretna. In the playoffs, the girls proved their winning spirit by beating Appomattox in the first game. In the second game they defeated their first place opponent Gretna to secure the title of District Champions for the first time in the his¬ tory of NCHS. All the girls combined their abilities in an overall superior team effort, but Diane Epps was dubbed as the Most Valuable Player. For this season, Mrs. Greene expects an excellent team by uniting efforts of veterans and new addi¬ tions. Practicing on their new athletic field and sporting new uniforms, unique to this district, this 1973 softball season should prove to be another winner. Front row, L. to R.: S. Kirtly, D. Stratton, G.

SPRING APPROACHES WITH BASEBALL As the 71-72 Governor baseball team slid into home for the last time in the latter part of May, they found them¬ selves facing a very discouraging 3-14 won-lost record. But who could forget that Saturday night in early May when Nelson defeated its arch-enemy Amherst, 8-1? For the first time in eight years, Governor fans had the thrill of surpassing the “annual antagonists.” Billy Ferguson, keeping a conscious eye on 3rd base, was voted Nelson’s Most Valuable player. Tommy Har¬ vey, holding down left field, was cited as an outstanding player also. Both Ferguson and Harvey made the second All-District team, each in his respective position. Last year’s full-season seniors numbered only three: Ferguson at 3rd, Buzz Goad at 2nd, and Gary Fields at shortstop. Seniors on the ’73 squad include Danny Fergu¬ son, Tommy Harvey and David Profitt. New assistant coach Jim Garwood said of this year’s team: “We’ve got the nucleus for a great team and we re expecting a great season.” 86 Nelson Opponent 5 Staunton River 6 3 Gretna 5 3 Brookville 5 6 William Campbell 7 7 Rustburg 11 3 Amherst 9 5 Waynesboro 7 5 Altavista 3 2 Appomattox 12 8 Amherst 7 3 Altavista 2 6 Rustburg 10 0 Brookville 3 8 William Campbell 9 3 Staunton River 6 3 Appomattox 4 10 Gretna 12 Upper left: The line-up for the Nelson Nine.

S ' ■I Hit mam wmmm ENGLISH FOCUSES ON PRACTICALITY The English Department had three projects this year in the mass media a study, curriculum revision, and textbook adoption. The mass media project included a study of the vari¬ ous forms of mass media, such as newspapers, maga¬ zines, television, and advertising. Students made dummy layouts of a newspaper page and learned how to write articles. Mrs. Oliver and Miss Garrett, who conducted the study, enabled students to be critical readers, to form an opinion of their own, and to decide for themselves whether or not advertised products are worthwhile. The revision of the English curriculum was devised to create two different English courses, one for col¬ lege-bound students and another for non-college- bound students. Vocational students would learn busi¬ ness, or practical English, such as communication, how to apply for a job, or how to interview. Corresponding to the curriculum revision, the text¬ book adoption was designed to obtain two different textbooks for both college-bound and non-college- bound classes. Each selection will cater to the interest level of each group and will also meet the various needs of the students. 90 Upper left: The practicality of journalism skill taught in English is shown in the mak¬ ing of a newspaper.

MOCK ELECTION HIGHLIGHTS SOCIAL STUDIES ACTIVITIES The brainchild of the Social Studies Department this year was the mock election headed by Miss Ver- duce’s government classes. Students throughout the school were given the chance to participate in na¬ tional and local elections. All the procedures of an ac¬ tual election were used including registration, the use of a voting machine, and even a mock press confer¬ ence with the Republican and Democratic candidates for President. The fearless “Senior Scholastic,” a weekly publica¬ tion about contemporary issues, the use of films, and the ETV all helped to supplement social studies courses. A knowledge of current issues and events was stressed by the department, as well as knowledge of past events. By learning about the past and applying that knowledge to the present, one can hope for a brighter future. The department, headed by Mr. Davis, offers World History, World Geography, American History, Gov¬ ernment, and, celebrating its second birthday at Nel¬ son, Sociology. 91 VOCATIONAL SKILLS RECEIVE EMPHASIS A mini extension of the maxi world of Secretary Earl Butz resides in the secreted quarters of Mr. Puck¬ ett and Mr. Hankins behind the high school. This seg¬ ment of vocational study at NCHS offers courses in mechanics, welding, electricity, woodwork, and blue¬ print reading in order to prepare students for occu¬ pational opportunities as well as to provide a general knowledge in these fields. The fumes of varnish, oil, and gasoline are often counteracted by more tantalizing odors penetrating the school during cooking sessions in the kitchens of home economics classes. Knowledge from many fields is combined in solving home-life problems. Mrs. Giles and Mrs. Parr emphasize skills such as cooking, sew¬ ing, wise purchasing habits, caring for children, public relations and the budgeting of time, money, and energy. Upper left: Sewing skills are taught in Home Ec. in addition to cooking, budgeting and many others. Upper middle: Shavings fly as a student uses the lathe in his shop class. Upper right: Skills learned in shop and agriculture classes prove useful in secur¬ ing jobs. Lower left: Long drives in the country are recorded with the coveted certifi¬ cate of completition of course. Lower right: Exercises prepare students for an hour of basketball. 92 ACTION IN THE GYM AND ON THE ROAD Disinclined girls panting away doing calistherics and perspiring boys putting their all into an ever-en- thusiastic basketball game are two of the many picto¬ rial images created at the mention of physical educa¬ tion classes. The girls, headed by Miss Nimmo and Mrs. Greene, learn how to play basketball and field hockey as well as such male-dominated sports as foot¬ ball and handball. Under the direction of Mr. Witt and Mr. Wood, boys are involved in wrestling, handball, baseball, and, of course, football. At the ring of a bell the aggressive athlete is trans¬ formed into a more passive and most nervous student chauffeuring Mr. Truesdale around in a driver’s ed. car. Changing car tires, seeing films emphasizing the importance of the safe and careful driving, and class lectures help make NCHS students good and alert drivers. 93 Upper left: Compasses make math more interesting.

BUSINESS DEPART¬ MENT EXPANDS The clicking of typewriters, the hum of an unknown voice on the dictaphone machines, and the subtle scratches of pens on shorthand pads and leger pages are among the musical sounds emanating from the northern part of the second floor hall. Offering a total of twenty-four classes a day, the business department runs the gamut of classes in General Business, Record¬ keeping, Shorthand I, Typing I and II, and Secretarial and Clerical Office Practice. This year one additional teacher and more classes in typing and general busi¬ ness have been provided. Also room 214 has been out¬ fitted with typing desks, chairs and typewriters. Such a wide range of courses enables the student to pursue in¬ tensive study in vocational training or to supplement his educatiion with practical skills. 94 MATH FLAVORED BY STUDENT NEEDS Math 9, Geometry, and Algebra I and II are among the courses offered in the Math Department which en¬ able the student to acomplish with relative ease such essential skills as making sure the nab machine has de¬ livered the correct change, plotting the shortest dis¬ tance between two points to insure arrival before the tardy bell rings, and finding an unknown, such as one’s grade in algebra. If sufficient complexity is not found in these areas, the student can always enroll in Miss Cauwenberg’s precalculus class. In x’s, sines and co¬ sines, everyday problems are used to expand the stu¬ dent’s mind while colored chalk beautifies the math¬ ematical environment. 95 THE SCIENCES EXPLORE “WHY” The Science Department, headed by Mr. John White, includes Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. The major goal of the sciences is to an¬ swer the question Why. An earth science class explains one day why the Blue Bidge Mountains are in their present shape. The answer to why a starfish is able to regenerate a lost ray is suddenly discovered in a lec¬ ture by Mr. White. Labs, films, field trips, disection, insect collections, and mathematic equations comprise the scientific paraphernalia which make the unknown known. 96 CREATIVITY SHOWN THROUGH FINE ARTS The main platform of the Fine Arts department is creativity. Students are offered three main events for their creativity: art classes, band, or chorus. These classes are concerned with bringing out individual tal¬ ents. Students learn an appreciation for art and music, along with an appreciation for their own abilities. In November, Miss Massie’s talented art students provided creative posters for the drama club’s presen¬ tation of “Arsenic and Old Lace.’’ Also throughout the year, the art students had various projects, one of which was molding ceramics. The Concert Band gave two major public performances during the year, at Christmas and in the spring, in addition to their travels to the Distr ict V festival. Besides conducting band class, Mr. Green devoted his talents to his Music His¬ tory and Appreciation class which gave students a background in music. The Chorus, under the guidance of Mrs. Truesdale, also held two concerts, one at Christmas and one in the spring. Likewise, the Chorus traveled to the District V festival during the year.

Lower right: Students prac¬ tice for the annual Christmas concert. 97 STUDENTS TRAVEL VIA WORD OF MOUTH Students of NCHS have the opportunity to broaden their understanding of other peoples through the study of foreign language. The de¬ partment offers three years of Spanish, three years of French, and two years of Latin. While Latin class consists mainly of trans¬ lation, it is the background for many modern languages, including English. Even though Latin is a dead language, it is alive and well in Mrs. Bragg’s room. French classes are supplemented with the French magazines Ca Va, and Feu Vert Spanish students are involved with projects, such as the construction of a dream house. Another goal of the department is to expose students to the different cultural customs, whether they consist of ancient Roman archi¬ tecture, a French cafe, or a Spanish pinata. The Spanish classes celebrated “The Day of the Dead,” a Spanish holiday, by eating “bones.” Latin students read a Latin story “The Roman Wedding” which explains Roman culture and describes Roman homes and meals. In the French club, the extension of the French classes, members are able to taste French foods while learning about other aspects of French culture.

GROUP GUIDANCE PROGRAM This year, the Guidance Department placed more emphasis on a group guidance program. This new project began in the fall when an assembly on health careers was held for the juniors and seniors. November 13 was College Day for all interested students. The College Day activities, part of a statewide program, were co-ordinated at NCHS by Mrs. Whitehead, Mrs. Coleman, and Mr. Ingersoll. Representatives from sixty-seven schools of higher learning were present. Included were four-year col¬ leges, two-year colleges, business, nursing, technical schools, and the armed services. Approximately 150 students attended and because the program was considered a success, it will be repeated. At the invitation of the guidance department. Detective Lieutenant Lewis W. Hurst, commanding officer of the Norfolk Police Department Narcotic and Dangerous Drug Unit, spoke December 7 to the student body on drug abuse. Afterwards, he met with class officers to discuss the implementation of a stu¬ dent control board for drug abuse within the school. Beside these special activities the counselors also were in¬ volved in class projects. In the fall, the freshman did a unit on study habits. The sophomores’ unit on values was augmented by the visit of Kathleen W.

The senior class is the first class to attend NCHS for four years instead of five. When the Black and White school systems consoli¬ dated, Nelson Memorial, changing its name to Nelson Junior High School, became the school for seventh and eighth graders. Although they didn’t win Spirit Week, the Seniors were judged to have the most all- around spirit. Because the Seniors were one of the wealthiest classes, with $100 in their fresh¬ man treasury, they had plenty of money for the senior class activities, such as the class picnic on Senior Day. ill Upper left: David, Roger, and Danny have a small dis¬ cussion in the hall.

The Class of ’74 began the annual battle to beat the cost of their prom with a real kick when Doris “Steve Knight” Showalter booted the ball to Dale “Wrong-Way” Revely, to start the first an¬ nual “Sugar and Spice Bowl” game. The game was played between “Nelson,” under the cunning coaching of Mr. Garwood, and “Appo¬ mattox,” ably organized by Mr. Stark. While the girls entertained on the gridiron, the crowd cheered them on under the cheerleadership of “Wanda” Crocker and other effeminate friends. The “Appomat¬ tox Band,” directed by drum majorette Sue Mays, marched on the field and entertained the troops at halftime. The final score was 32-0 in Nelson’s favor. The game was a fund-raising success and a definite spirit booster. During Spirit Week, the juniors again exerted their energies to come up with a win in both the posters and the yell-out com¬ petitions, winning Spirit Week with a two-thirds majority. After the headache of the PSAT-NMSQT and College Boards, the year was spiced by receiving class rings and made perfect by the suc¬ cess of the Junior-Senior prom.

No longer the youngest class, they were eager and capable of becoming involved in the active life at NCHS. Sophomores found themselves choosing courses as well as programs of study. The selection of courses widened to include business classes and foreign lan¬ guages. If the academic program was chosen, a tenth grader took geometry and a foreign language and if he decided on the business program, Typing I and General Business were offered. Every sophomore could be found struggling through biology class, ant¬ icipating the day the insect collections were due. Money-raising projects for the junior prom became a prime subject for next year’s concern. Their treasury was enriched during Spirit Week when the cheerlead¬ ers and sophomores joined forces, kidnapped two foot¬ ball players, and divided the collected ransom. 138 Hilda Aistrop Frank Allen Onedia Allen Teresa Anderson Larry Awkard John Baker Kay Baldwin Janice Bell Cathy Beverly Bay Bibb Ruth Boggs Thomas Bolden Bonnie Bolton Dorothy Bradley Mark Bradley Mancy Bragg Lower middle: It’s time for lunch and maybe a little gossip.

When they were asked about the new experience of being the youngest group at school, the majority agreed that the major drawback, being looked down by the upperclassmen, was quickly dissolved as new friends were made. When questioned about school improvements, they responded that both physical and social improvements were needed. Some suggested enlarging the cafeteria and gymnasium. Other added that the ap¬ pearance of the football field and the exterior of the school needed improvements. One freshman even suggested coed shop and home economic classes. Most agreed, however, that there should be more cooperation between the students and teachers. Middle: These freshmen enjoy the sunshine. Lower right: Jerry displays a freshmen talent. 148 Mark Adams Robert Adams Deloris Allen Robert Allen Karen Allen James Anderson Wanda Ballowe Carol Bolden Elmo Bowling Kathy Bradley Samantha Briggs Bill Brown Bobby Campbell Ronald Campbell Larry Cabell Blain Campbell Vicky Campbell Marvin Carroll Charlie Carter Jerry Carter Karen Carter Peggy Carter Lori Chafee Erie Childress Guy Clark 149 0 Upper left: The strain of the exercise shows on the face.
