While these principles underlie all education, their application should become apparent during the high school period. All high school graduates should de- velop the initiative, self-control, and ability which experience in solving life problems demand. The organization, spirit, and studies of your high school are built around these seven purposes. If you have made the most of your tion, you are 1. You 2. You 3. u opportunities in high school, now, upon gradua- so well trained that can maintain yourself in sound health. have mastered the "fundamentals". are prepared to earn your living and to render successful service in a useful vocation. 4. You are capable of worthy home membership.- 5. You can assume responsibility for faithful citizen- ship. 6. You know how to use your leisure time in ways that will enrich and beautify your own life and the lives of others. 7. Your character is so well formed that you will be able to harmonize your life with the lives of your fellows for the betterment of society. Measured by the criterion-of training, high school grad- uation places you in the upper seventh of society. Your success in life, then, depends wholly upon your ability to make use of your opportunities. 1-11" 1' 4Xki'G2...liC Mil El3i'"Q l Yo ,I 0 l w 70' l I Y il li Sl l so l Il ii w w Ill 'll 'X 1 J' up -1- ll A 3 , , , .cg . ."'. ,aww w JZTWM- .:V Y n Y " in -T im - F- A , -.2.. 2! .: - 'E-Qi 75 X ilgia , 5:11 - m e ..- in g - rc .,e.-i- W , ,fl V i 5, U! 1, .E LL up 3 H111 Y, N Il li Is N ,HF- bi YF . -af-Lan- ,nf i 735-:SY 1,5273 A 1.2 W q w 'JK ::5'-5 31 EDI- 1 P' 5 V ifw .357 Tiff..

Vlficny, Class H1i.sfm'iE1f11, The curtain went up four years ago on a class of more than a hundred folks. And now at tl1e end of thosc years the curtain is falling only to rise again, We hope, on scenes inuch higher and better. But Without going into the future, l, the historian of the Class of February, nineteen hundred and twenty-seven, shall endeavor to give to you a brief synopsis of the happenings of the last four years. If you can imagine four short years filled with disappointments, sorrows, pleasures, Ellld joys you have an idea of what these years of high school life have been to us. S On tl1e first of February, nineteen hundred and twenty-three, stu- dents' seemed to pour from all directions. One would have thought that the Pied' Piper had come to town and that everyone was responding to the call of his magic pipe. lf one had noticed closely they would have seen scattered among the throng this illustrious class of Febru- ary, 1927, making their Way toward their goal-High School. VVe were quite a shy, meek group tl1en. The much used word "Rats" was already being hissed at us from all sides. But soon under the capable leadership of our efficient teachers and principal and by following our older brothers and sisters We were made to feel right at home. May I pause here for a nioinent EL11Cl offer to Mr. Joseph H. Saun- ders, Superintendent of Schools and Mr. Fred M. Alexander with his most capable faculty our hearty appreciation and gratitude for their untiring efforts in helping us in everything that We have undertaken to do during our stay in High School. It is thru lillfilll Eilld tl1e1n alone that We have reached our goal-Graduation. W c sincerely hope that the folks that we are leaving behind will find' the same keen enjoyment of Working with Mr. Alexander as We have in the last four years. May they cooperate with him in everything he undertakes to do. Our years in High School have passed entirely too quickly. Many changes have taken place during this time. Our activities have grown, our school publication, THE BEACON, has obtained state and national fame, our athletics have progressed, our football team has bee11 cham- pion of tl1e state in 1925. But the best of all We have a new building. , I L!! f ..-,.,h1?. ' X t... J. yi, W1 ff-1 .ll 1.-, ' :- l if-li It ii l' I L? l Q, . ,r- ln! 1 i -p. l sm, P11 ,T -My fi .

A building that ern- bodies everything one could wish for in the way of an education. And HL proud indeed were we when we were privileged to leave the cramped quarters in the old iValter Reed building and to enter this spacious :QUE school-home, where we have spent the' last years of our High School life and from which we are now being graduated. In the way of i itug 5 athletics special note must be given to the distinguished team of 1925. 'A b A team which had every mark of character and of manhood and last, but not least, a team which brought the Championship of the State of Virginia home to their dear Alma Mater-the Gold and the Blue. Witli members of our class holding positions on the football teamg others playing in the orchestra and still others engaging in various 5 activities of the school, we feel that our class has played a vital part l l. in the making of the history of Newport News High School. Always forming a part of the third line of defense we have Ubacked to a ,f' 1 stand" the projects undertaken by the school. From the time we 'init were the most insignificant "rat" until now when we are about to gffl' launch ourselves on the ocean of life we have felt our love for the li' it dear old Alma Mater, an Alma Mater which we will continue to love through the voyage of life. tl Seniors may come and they may go, Ent pope? can stand for mofre, wil or io a purer purpose rm, Than the class of '27. tit Through the constant life-long guidance of our parents and the earnest direction and care of our counsellors-each one of us have formed some purpose for our life work. All too soon the time has ggrgl come when we can no longer fly to the protecting arms of our dear Alma Mater, but as men and women of to-morrow we must launch out ll' p upon life's sea. Fellow students, let us take with us loyalty as our ,QQ slogan, loyalty to our teachers, loyalty to our parents, loyalty to each if other and loyalty to God our Father. Our ideals that have been formed in the Newport News High School are noble and there is bitterness in Q5 forsaking the school which gave them. lr l' .45 lfill .H wr .. ifvn.

'One day I was attacked with severe pains in the lower regions of my upper left wisdom tooth. I was immediately sent to a large hospital where to my dismay I found that Doctor George C'lcw'kc was surgeon there. Ether was applied-my senses whirled, I felt as if I was sink- ing, and then I knew no more. Suddenly I found myself standing on a solitary peak of a group of mountains. As I stood there reviewing the hills and vales below me, I beheld a stream gush forth from a rock on the ground far below ine. Its curvings and windings seemed to form the word "Friendship", I descended to the banks of this stream and gazed upon the spark- ling waters long and musingly. A slight touch on my arm caused me to turn and behold a slender graceful veiled young woman. In one of her hands she held a large golden key. To my ears came a soft silvery whisper, "IVould you like to cross the river of 'Friendship' with me and see our classmatesti' My heart leaped joyously. "But who-who are you?" She lifted her veil slowly and I beheld Scwah Patterson. "Flip-flap-magooli' she exclaimed. Out of the gurgling waters there sprang forth a silver canoe. It was named t'Championship'?. IVe entered and traveled down the stream. Suddenly, the canoe struck a sand-bar. Then I noticed that the sand-bar began to rise until it formed a little isle. We stepped out, and instantly the canoe sank. In the center of the isle there was a large bronze trap door. With the golden key, 'Sarah opened the door and we entered. Inside I beheld a beautiful, large cavern, in the center of which there was a large pearl ball, resting on a marble pedestal. On the base of the pedestal were the words: 'tThe Ball of Time". - The cavern grew dark, so dark that I could' not see my hand before my face. Only the ball. stood out in white relief. IVatching intently, I saw an image form slowly within the Ball of Time. As the picture grew, so did the ball, so that I felt as if I was in the Ball itself. "IVe are now in Mexico," announced Sarah. I found myself gaz- ing on large skyscrapers 20 to 50 stories in height. Some were odd, some were beautiful. Every one in the streets seemed excited, and bustling around. Suddenly out of a large portentious looking' building there rushed a young man, with his hat set rakishly on one side of his .l,:,,n,.,.,,,,,mn..,.r,.n,.I. . .... n..,,....- .... -, ,.-.,, -nn .i f.-.

The voice-it was that of Fred Bruins. D , "VVhat the-what are you talking about?" I managed to gasp. - "About? A revolution of course!" ' A "A revolution?" 'fYupp! Against the Mexican President Oscar Suttle. He didn 't treat me right, and I'm mad so I'm getting up a revolution." "VVhat did he do?" ' "I-Iilred Hrziclsoaz. Livesagy to lead his army against the U. S. and woul.dn't hire me. Are you with me?" "No! I am going to the good old U. S. Goodbye!" I said. Instantly we found ourselves at the Capitol in Vfashington, D. C. A sweet young thing met us in the hallway of the Capitol building. One look was enough. She was Bessie Spam. From her busy chatter we gleaned that President Albert Mfillcm' was a woman hater and a bachelor, but-er-ahem-he couldn't resist her attraction and now she expected' him to be her seventh catch. As soon as we saw the President we informed him of the con- spiracy in Mexico, which was part of the U. S. now. He immediately sent for Admiral Herbert Roseozberger. As soon as they were told about the rebellion, the Coiniuandei' sent for the captain of the air fleet, Captain lfffilton Bofwe-rs, who left at once for the scene of the battle with the bombing squadron. Leaving the Capitol, we walked to a large cafe. Inside the window was the chef, flip flopping flapjacks. WVe recognized him as llfarner Twyforcl. To our surprise we saw that lfwgrlwio Orr was dishwasher. We saw afar off a large beautiful theatre rear its head above its neighbors. On the roof there flashed in large colored letters, the name Brushwiooclis Opera House. lWe found him standing near the ticket booth watching the inflowing money, and' we were soon deep in happy conversation. We learned that he, Preston Brushwood, owned the largest theatre in the U. S. IVe beheld Mary Lou Cutclzms in '4Made- moiselle CooCoo" and Senorita Miricmie. J olmson flashing before us in electric lights. I7Vithin the theatre, I saw Catherine Bowers leading the orchestra. In one of the boxes I beheld a tall man with wide side- burns, a wide hat, and a paunch. An usher told us that he was Horace Christie, the Cattle Baron of the IVest. Suddenly, the "Ball of Time" shifted scenes and we found our- selves in the suburbs of a large, well built town. Sarah informed me that this was Missouri. To the right of us, I beheld a beautiful four- l ll ,. l if ll, li v J l l 1 I A 1 A. , ' .Cy '1..l,,.,j. M. 1?-,f..rQ,A'1.Q,, ., . f 1 " MV"-1 2 H 1 pa. ,fra l - ft li I V- ' H5 5 'F f i story house. Its beautiful lawn was covered with all manner of signs, cats and dogs. Many busily-chattering women of all sizes and shapes Were Wandering around. As We Walked to the. gates, We saw a sign which informed us that Miss M ahel M eC0rhlc was "Dean of the Home for Indignant Females". As soon as We saw the sign, We fled. A little further on We saw another institute, Which We approached with some trepidation and' found that it Was an institute for the "Dumb", run by Howard Roche. '. In a large church We saw a familiar looking man preaching a ser- mon. It Was Terrell J olmsooiz, the World known evangelist. After leav- ing the church, We met two Salvation Army Workers-Sa1'ah M organ and Charles Z chmer. We traveled westward and arrived in Colorado. Vile were so hungry that We stopped at a farm a few miles from Denver. Here, Whom should We recognize as the farmer but Waweit Woocl. He hap- pily and joyously bade us Welcome and called in the two hired hands. Then there was some reunion, for they were no other but Carl N elsofn and Henry Lawrence. When We reaehed the city, a little boy handed us a card. He was red-headed and reminded me very much of Joe E'6l'HZO'VLClSO7'L. On asking him his name, he told' us that he was Joseph P. D. Q. Eclmomlsofn, Jr., and that his Hpopsy was chasing a run for governorf' On looking on the card, We beheld Joseph, Sr., himself, slightly aged, but the freckles and red hair still there. The card read: VOTE FOR JOSEPH QREDSD EDMONDSON FOR GOVERNOR HERE IS A HREDU THAT ISN'T A BOLSHEVIK! ! Sarah told me that he was running against lMissj Lillian Nall, and that she would Win. I felt very sorry, for I pitied a state with a female at the head of it. . We passed a gloomy, la.rge establislnnent which Sarah told me Was an undertaker's. Just then a gloomy looking man with a tall silk hat and a long black, swallowtail coat Walked' out, and, who was it, but George Masters. Again We traveled. This time We reached Oalifornia. In San Francisco, We ran across a "We Dye to Live" cleaning shop with Robert Coheofs name on the window. On a billboard We saw that Rath C'allwell's Oircus Was coming to the city. Grace M orgaln was the fat lady. Glaclys Smith was the mystic. A short trip to Hollywood proved very interesting. IVe found , f i rf' iafgiumifai-'A H.: Lt' ".3'f'1'r""""1"5 '-'fri' 'v,fC. -Q . .

Vir- ginia Brown was the female villain in every picture she played in. A sudden darkness-I find myself in Japan with Sarah. Here we found Thelma Kecwn was a missionary. She told us that W illioim J ebson was the British Diplomat. There was a Chinese-American Col- lege for Fair Damsels, presided over by James Pctrher. Com Lee Singleton was a student in the college. An invisible power drew us away from Japan, away, away, until we suddenly found ourselves in India. There we learned that Adelaide Harwell was the Queen. We couldn't believe it. As we wandered on, I caught sight of Ben Frieclnian trying to sell real estate in the Sahara Desert. He didn't recognize us at first and began a long discourse on the value of living on the Desert, ending by saying that the sand was 'Q' guaranteed not to rip, snort, tear or run down at the heels". We questioned him about Aclelowicle Harwell Cabovej being the Queen of India, and Ben said, 'tYes, sir, she is the greatest Opium Queen in Asiaf' I knocked' him down and we fled. She had one great enemy, who was so big, that she feared him mightily when he questioned her. The Queen drew me to one side and whispered timidly in my ear, "He is John W carol! " J olm stole her opium and smuggled it to the North Pole, where he sold it to the aged Eskimos. Suddenly we found ourselves on the deserts of Arabia. Before us loomed a large camp. A couple of Arabs, tlookedf very much like American negroes to mel, escorted us to their sheik whom to our sur- prise, turned out to be Bircl H ooper. Bird wanted to hide us quick. So we let him usher us into a secret cave beneath the surface of the ground. As soon as the trap-door was shut he breathed a sigh of relief. We asked him what was the matter and he told us that Emily Wiley was the leader of an Amazon tribe. She was trying to round up a harem of men. So whenever she saw a young, good-looking arab or shiek, she would capture him and' put him in her harem. But so far, Bird, by keeping a watchful guard over his, was able to hide when she came. WVe were also informed that Morgclret Stinnett was Prime Minister of Emily's tribe. One of her captives was Hoioarcl Smith, who was caught trying to sell some of his boy scout medals to the entire population of Arabia. 'We did not stay long in Arabia. Under cover of night, we man- aged to steal away from the camp, without being detected by the Amazons. The "Ball of Time" seemed to contract. Turkey grew smaller jeu LL- .. f til ill fill Q no fl' L,g"??'?'i 'ff r-tiif' fiffl -?lifi5f'f1Q Qlflfffll'-tiff!

Then a new image seemed to grow, until we saw a large bustling city, in the foreground of which was a large tower. It was the Eiffel Tower we saw, so we knew at once that we were in Paris. The "Ball', soon grew to such proportions, that again we were encompassed within its vision. YVe found ourselves before the "Hotel de Dame Fashion". Here we met Hilclcl Gross who had been chosen the worldls most beautiful woman. She was accom- panied by her friend and companion, Evelyn Brevmefr, the famous opera singer. Vile strolled around until we came to a little suburb of Paris. Here we found 'La Belle France's Beauty Parlor". Wle recognized it to be Elizabeflz, Jofnesf She told' Sarah that she could make her as beautiful as Miss Gross for 2194.98 special. IVe left for the Aviation Field Air Station to catch a 'plane for America. A freight plane, just leaving suddenly stopped near us, and to our amusement, we saw a tramp booted out of the door. As he picked himself up, I recognized him as Colcmcm Lealre. He was a sorry sight to see. A wee old stubble of a beard, a derby cocked on the side of his head, his nose very red, a Charlie Chaplin shoe on one foot and a pointed-, narrow patent leather shoe on the other. A policeman chased him away before we could speak to him. Wlle entered an aeroplane bound for Boston. A petite young maid was selling pickles and magazines. To my surprise, she called us by na1ne, and lo! it was Dorothy Sotlll. We found ourselves at Newport, Rhode Island. WVe heard some old Hawaiian Jazz music, and rounding a corner, we beheld a 4'Hula- Hula" dancer, dancing in a small arena within a group of palmetto trees. A couple of girls were playing on guitars. WVe stopped and watched the dancer, who was very beautiful. She had a beautiful mass of golden hair reaching to her ankles. She was tanned a beautiful shade of golden brown, and with a figure so slender and graceful, that my heart went quite out to her. Just then, the dance ended, and to my wounded' pride and sorrow, I indignantly beheld Sher" remove her wig, and I saw Halrolcl Eggleston appear. On the next corner was a fiery, bewhiskered radical making a Bol- shevik speech. Cluriously, we asked a growling policeman who he was, to which the policeman snorted, f'Aw! its Hocwcl J eozlclns, the biggest 'Red' talker in the U. SY' I couldn't believe my ears. Hoard Jenkins a Bolsheviki! In school he was the meekest. lVell, surprises and ac- cidents will always happen. WVe glanced at a paper called the "Daily Egg" which to our sur- prise, was edited by Dcwicl Goldberg. In the paper we found that .p- , i 1 , A 1, , . l i ll ll 1 I i l I ii. l li I I I I i l I i l 1 i l l l E i i I 1 l I l i I 1 lg' l l I .E ., Ni i w il' l I . ti -wi: f , 2 5 .1-. . . 1. ,'P,i.'3 ,f e-. 1,'gfQTt?t'g' .ia -1-iytdrfdvcrsref g.fxQ1g-'Q-fr: ygw- ' . , y "'fi'?3?:'ff .iff l3.3'Jt':'34ifE:'i..i '--fy :xx f - -. . -- '-is ..,, fiitl.i:1-.i'n'g'YEEf,:'L'- "tt-N kffx 'ig' 5 , K Virginia O'R0nrhe, of the Yale team, had won a football victory over coach Frances Ficvaryfs Vassar team of girls. We wished to see old Newport News again. No sooner had the desire entered our minds than we found ourselves there. How things were cha.nged. The smallest building in N. N. was the old Masonic Temple. On the street floor of a gigantic skyscraper, was Mme Hilda Scott, Palmist. On the top of each tall building, there was a vast flat area, supported by arches on each building, so that some of the streets were dark, shut out by this immense cover. IVe came to what was formerly 30th Street. Now it was called HC. A. L." A huge depart- ment store, selling everything from policemen to governors, from but- tons to motorboats and automobiles stood where once we had seen Nachman's. We stepped in the elevator and we saw that the elevator woman was Daisy H anilin. In here we found that Marion Smith Was a junior partner in the firm. She advised us to visit the court house. Accordingly we did. But to our amazement, when we reached 25th Street and looked for the little court house, we beheld a building very similar to the Capitol. Gingerly, we stepped: inside. An attendant took us into the court room. The judge was just leaving. It was a woman. The moment she saw us, she gave an undignified whoop, and pounced on us. It was none other than Catherine Bnnch. Judge Bunch told us that she had just finished a trespassing case in which Hazel Dobson, who was a vamp, was suing Martha Bowden, because Martha had beat her at her own game, by taking away her latest catch, because she was a professional heart breaker. Consequently the suit. Across the street we saw a small 15-story building, from which came a great buzzing and a-clacking. lVe went across and stepped inside. Standing before two great doors, I beheld Rnth Ashburn and Lois Brnshwoocl chattering to each other. They informed us they were guards to keep away any designing male from running away with any member of the Old Maids' Convention I-Iall. Looking through the door, we beheld the old maids, presided over by Margaret Mcnin, gossiping and knitting-hence the buzzing and clacking noise. We went to see one of the relics of our time, the old N. N. H. S. But lo! where was the magnificent splendor a.nd beauty of the old school? Gone, all gone. It was now a kindergarten, taught by Dorothy Matthews. The walls were marred and deliled, the lawns trampled. Only the stately poplars remained. I suddenly found myself in the cavern again. Faintly, I heard Sarah whisper in my ear, "VVe shallsee what becomes of our class- mates after they are gone." 1 . , M . 5 -. .,N,.:-9. -I, .,5W, 5 . - X ,..

There was a faint mist beside me, which I knew was Sarah. I found myself Wandering. I wandered, and wandered, and wandered, until I came to a hole in the wayside. It was a most loathsome hole. Repugnant odors, and horrible, weird, sad cries were emitted from the opening. Black flashes, thick wreathes of smoke, and tongues of flame shot out. Then Io! I beheld his majesty'- Satan! Dancing around him were his unholy, unearthly imps of Dark- ness. Satan attempted' to hold me back, but suddenly, the mist darted to him-he cowered, the flames and smoke parted, and I was allowed to enter. I beheld amazing sights, many familiar faces, but of my classmates-not a sign. Again I wandered and wandered and wandered, until afar off, I beheld a beautiful city. It seemed to rest on a mass of snow white clouds, themselves resting on the desert. To my ears was wafted the sound of gentle music. All was peace, all was quiet. As I came nearer, I saw that the streets were paved with gold and silver, the trees and lawns sparkled with resplendent jewels, angels flitted gently to and fro, administering to a new comer here and there. I reached the gate, and' looking in, I beheld them-my classmates. I strove to enter, but sud- denly the mist was before me. I felt myself sinking, everything was growing dark. I could not utter a sound. Then, to my fast deadening ears, I heard a whisper-"Not yet, not yet, but we shall meet again. After what seemed an eternity,AI returned to consciousness to iind myself on the operating table. I sighed and fell into a deep, dreamless sleep. 77 , CONCLUSION Notwithstanding these humorous and fantastic prophecies, I see sturdy young men and women, who have been classmates of mine for four short, sweet years. I know that each will hold some high station in life. I see them as our future officers and executives of the city, state, and of the nation. I see them as presidents of our greatest cor- porations. ' There is no reason not to believe that they will be men and women of note and importance. Wliy shouldn't they? Have they not brains 51.53 you-or I-have? Have they not your ability-your energy? The professions of life spread before me as in a panorama. Law, pharmacy, medicine, banking, accountancy, farming, clergy, and many things too numerous to mention. I see my classmates occupying many of these positions with honor and glory to themselves, to their profes- sions and to their Alma Mater.

FRVANK H. BEARD - Having completed our stay here we are about to launch our ships on the great sea of life believing that the hand of God which has guided us during the past four years will still guide us and be with us as we strive for better and bigger things. VVe believe our high school to rank among the best in the state, or country, and that she will continue to give of her sons and daughters, to the state of Virginia, to become her leading citizens. VVe believe our faculty to be a very able and competent body of men and Women who have done, with marked success, the task set before them. VVe believe our principal, Mr. Fred M. Alexander, has done to the best of his ability the task of educating us physically, mentally and spiritually, and that he has always wished the best for us. We sincerely believe in our school board and superintendent, Mr. Joseph H. Saunders, that they have acted justly and wisely in all things. We believe whole heartedly in our parents who have borne with us our sorrows and' shared with us our joys. They have worked and prayed for us, hoping that we would live up to their ideals. We believe in the activities of the school as a means by which the talent of the students may be expressed. Especially do we believe in the Beacon and the Orchestra as being the two outstanding student activities. A We believe in the athletics in the school as being an important factor of our school life. It is a means of recreation and alleviates the worries of the class room, but most of all, it develops boys and girls who are able to go out into the world and stand up for their own. We believe in Newport News not only as "The Harbor of a Thous- and Shipsn, but as "The Harbor ofa Thousand Opportunities". We feel that a great future is in store for her. VVe believe the State of Virginia to be one of the leading of the forty-eight, and that the great influence she had among the thirteen colonies is still prevalent and will continue to be so. We believe in the United States as a government of the people, by the people and for the people. VVe believe that she is the leading country of countries, and that she is the country of golden opportunities. And last, but not by far the least, we believe in God whose omnipo- tent presence we have felt continually and will continuelto feel as we continue our journey through life. , Y. , , , i, -,-,vii 1 ,. ., ,A .,.- ii, Lx, Liz-. .,..,..i.2gf...4.i..-.-...r.,V...Y--....-Q--J fi--TF ,V V - V V -- - -V.. -V V- Y gf Vw NAv- :gi -sr ' -H14-5-fif--Q J ii -l V.

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF JUNE, 1927 XNILLIE JENsEN As we look back to September '23 fa red letter month to most of usb, we wonder if we could ever have been those insignificant creatures who entered the WValter Reed High School. Is it possible that four years could make such a great difference in us, transforming fright- ened rats to dignified, self-confident Seniors? In that September of '23 we walked into the auditorium of the VValter Reed High School, too nervous to walk alone but with our arms linked with our best friends and trying to talk so that we could' appear just ordinary people and not conspicious Rats. A large number of us entered high school, and we were assigned to different home rooms. One group of Rats was in a room next to Seniors, another, next to Juniors, and still another, next to Sopho- mores because "variety is the spice of life". I Most of us had a brother or sister or some kind of relative in school who gave us some Uinside dope", but, nevertheless, we were still very timid. We felt like criminals when we rushed into Room 2 to End that we were in Algebra instead of English. We always "rush- ed" and' got to class four minutes before the bell rang. Finally, we got into the school routine and could easily walk into the office for a late slip without the least qualm. Some of us went out for literary careers, others for dramatics, but most of us did not do anything be- cause we-had not gained enough confidence in ourselves for public per- formances. In September '24 we entered the Newport News High School build- ing as Sophomores. This was an eventful year for the majority, and it soon glided into our Junior year. -4 Our third year was filled with all kinds of surprises. There was a large parade during "Educational Weeli". Every student in high school marched his best, but the Juniors "marched off" with the banner ' A--' ' "H-'-M-"E "7"'-TTi" 'Af' . ja' T' 'if' 'I"g1""QKQQ'i'T ,Q 'gf ' ,mmf ' T, ,.,.,, 'rig N -f 1 ty-eight .

There was a class dance at the Tidewater Club on George Wasliington s birth- day and a good time was had by all . This was the first time the class as a whole participated in any social function. In the inter-class basketball games, the Junior girls were the victors. Quite a few of us' followed the football team to Lynchburg to witness its victory and so win for us the State Chainpionsliip. ,, " W , ..-'A-ff-S . 'ff---' i 4 F - .I iv qs.: ' ' yjflfs f - gqjy s t "ll gg We M .I- i 7 cc , aa . . The huge number that entered- with us in 723 had dwindled. Some had withdrawn from school to go to work, others to start to journey across the uneven road of matrimony in Fords. Although we had lost many of our old classmates, we found new ones. And how glad we all were when in September '26 we again entered the high school doors to Enish the last of our courses. As Seniors, we felt proud of the fact that we had achieved such distinction and prepared ourselves for June graduation. The class rings and invitations were ordered. This class is the first to wear the new standard ring. Then the class stationery made its appearance. In the center of the top of each page is the school seal which is like the standard ring. On April first the class gave a dance, and in spite of the fact that the rain came down by bucketfuls, the dance was a huge success. .. In concluding this history, we must say that we give our sincere thanks to Mr. Alexander and Mr. Stanley for their co-operation, with- out which our class could not have prospered. And to the friends we have made, may they be friends of us still and in the days to come. A ll in no - -- T liiygl' vii " 'vez is Y - 2 ' ri WK.. 'N 1' .N ,ve1v"fZTi7fl:F::l'f !- . Ji PWR.

I, Essie Ewell, feel that our class of '27 is destined to play a large part in the world and its achievements. So if hope and prayers come true this will be the most glorious class ever graduated from Newport News High School regardless of what any oneielse may think. Of course being a prophet, I am able to see the after life of my friends, that is, during their sojourn on this planet of ours. Now prophets differ from magicians because the former dips into the future and the latter causes the realities to appear, but alas! I am only the former and can only ask you to believe what I am going to relate at least for the time being. I looked down the time and beheld myself seated with ease at a new invention of mine, a futurist-connecting-machine, a mechanism somewhat similar to our modern radio and the Hindu's crystal and I immediately proceeded to tune in on my class mates' lives, since I was interested to know what had become of them. Patiently, I sat waiting, my mind steadily fixed upon the Hrst connection which I wished to make, for you must understand that these connections upon my invention are made by telepatliy and only by such intriguing, ineasureless, countless air waves that my mental force was able to send up was I able to obtain the desired information. The first connective which I made was with Isabel Levy at the "Chicago Grang Uproarl' and I discovered that this young lady had made a great sensation by her Mozart-like ability upon the ivory keys and was that night signing a contract with concert managers in Europe. At the same time I found Arnice Bassett claiming the attention of thousand upon thousands of people at home and abroad for her ability upon the violin which was being hailed as second to none. Though if these two had gone far upon the road to fame and fortune so had others for I found that Louise Applewhite, a talented, gifted young artist whose appearance was being hailed everywhere for her artistic ability was just beginning to have her paintings exhibited in Paris, while Joseph Leitch was President of the United States with Clyde Dishroon, Walteic Cole, Lee Sweeney, Martin Friedland and Harr' !Ielson among those named in his cabinet and Edward Morris wa tanning the campaign for the election of the President for a sec- ond term. Mary Maxwell Norton at this time was being introduced to the King and Queen at Buckingham Palace as Lady Aylster, the wife of Lord Aylster of Sussex. After a half and hour or so I again made a connection and I found X L-f 5 1 I Nl ,i. ..y -,yi Qi, l i. if ,,, if I ..,. 1 i .X -I ,, ., 1, I 4 1...-A, -f ,H '-.fav i xl i' il up 'N QI 23' l i..

I had truly begun to think that all my classmates were attracted to the VVhite Liglit-Way, but my thoughts were suddenly disturbed for I found many of them interested in Science. Under the instruction of a great physicist, Ralph Lenz, a perpetual motion machine was being constructed, based upon the principle of Kathlyn Michie's tongue and I found that Fred Thomas somehow sponsored this novel idea because he believed it would advance the sale of his essays "Upon the Conservation of Energy as Practiced in My High School Days". Following quickly upon this information I discovered that Dennis IVest had interested Doctor Meredith Powell to present to the public his theory concerning "Useful and Unuseful Labor in Schools, at Home and Abroad". A I next found that under the guidance of a great socialist worker, Mildred Hurley, there were a great number of women organizing a woman's political party for more rights over the obstinate sex and among her followers, I discovered a great number of typists and sec- retaries, namely, Phyllis Hollingsworth, Thelma McC'ambridge, Kath- leen McCambridge, Evelyn Mallicott, Frances Godsey and Louise Furey. Then I hesitated and again tuned in, this time I discovered Eliza- beth King, Alice Addis and Eunice Bassett were great women educators and, along with these, I discovered that Horace Kemp had become a celebrated Socialist leader and was beginning an organization to under- take the solving of Social Problem conditions in America. I downed my head, I knew that, though a career was my high ambition, I had not suspected so many of the women to neglect home life, but I soon recovered for I hear that Eunice Edwards now Mrs. "Spike" Jordan was enjoying to her fullest extent a happy domestic life as Mae Meanley was likewise doing, though I did not exactly catch the name of Mae's husband, but I am sure he is a doctor for I realize I heard that much. I I was indeed, getting sleepy but I immediately aroused myself for Gordon Pearson had become star center on the Cornell Varsity. 'even and this was so much more than anyone expected probably, L is more than anyone except Coach WVhite, for he held high hopes or the most school spirited boy in N. N. H. S. and at last his dream had come true. It was at this same time that I found- Jake Royal and lValter Rilee, sport editors for the New York Times, were then at the Princeton- gi.-,ffcQg,21g-.5215f-'c Y ,i-. ai il '-5if?'iW 'c if v ,, V, ,..,, ,. ,, . bn, V .,,.

Cobb by lies, humor and wit in the Daily Press. Needless to say, I was delighted with these achievements of my former associates and so I pushed back my invention and decided to rest for a while, for such labor as I had expended' had taxed me to the utmost. Though I some day believe that I shall be able to arrange it in a manner that will not be so strenuous, I shall not bother to tell you of it now. Perhaps it will come by the science of Chemistry. lVho can tell? Part II. MARY MAXNVELL NORTON For some time I had wandered along the beach of the James and now, as the sun was rapidly getting lower, I decided not to go until the sunset, for who does not enjoy the beauty of ours over the James? Seating myself on the sand with my back against a tree, I watched the pageant before me. For a time everything was quiet, but, as the sun got closer to the horizon, the motors of the fishing boats started as each one set for home. It was not long, however, before most of them were well under way and the sound of their engines rapidly fading into the distance. Again the calm settled down over everything, broken only occasionally by the cry of a sea gull. The water was as smooth as glass, and the last rays of the great, red ball in the west threw across the river a path of light which seemed to end at my feet. Now the lower edge of the sun was resting on the opposite shore. Only a minute and it would be gone. Then suddenly, from across the water it seemed as if someone called me. IValking down to the river's edge, I stepped into the path of sunlight, walked out across the water, and up into the glorious sunset. VVhy I did' this I could not tell. Indeed I did not even stop to think, but was vaguely aware of some great will that was leading me on so that I could not have stopped had I desired to. I was floating in a space of bright colors with one fiery ball ahead, when all at once the ball vanished and left me engulfed in a deep darkness of the black- est night. Q, 4 .lc .. ' Several minutes passed, during which nothing happened. Then, as one awakening out of a deep sleep first becomes half conscious and finally entirely of surroundings, I slowly began to realize that I was on the deck of some large ocean liner. The deck was rather dark, and no one seemed to be around, but light poured from the windows and the gay chatter of people came from a.n open door near by. Stepping inside, I saw a large number of people in evening dress. Some were in groups talking and others reading, but for the most part there seemed to be a general movement in one direction. Following the general drift I found myself in the Social Hall of the ship. After most of the people had seated themselves, the Captain got up and announced that we would be entertained during the evening by some of our illustrious passengers. The Captain was quite genial and jolly, somehow made me think of someone I had known before. Then it dawned upon me that he was none other than an old classmate, Kenneth Wills. Captain IVills went on to say that it would be a miscellaneous program. First, we were to be given a duet by Miss Ruth Archibald and Miss Nancye Buxton with Miss Ma.bel Goodman, their accompanist, at the piano. These two prima donnas of the day had just completed a series of concerts on a European tour, and were now enroute home. The first things the Misses Archibald and Buxton were to sing were two love lyrics, words and music composed by Sol Ellenson. Wlien the Captain announced this, it was hard to fully appreciate the beauti- ful songs which followed, for the idea of the entirely business-like Sol writing love songs was difficult to grasp. Miss Buxton next sang a solo, a lullaby written by Coleman Leake. After the songs which were enjoyed very much, a dancer came on the stage. Everyone was quite bewitched by her graceful dancing. Looking at her through opera glasses borrowed from the person next to me, I recognized an old friend, Suzanne Hiden. This was another surprise but I soon discovered that there seemed no end to them. Several other dances followed, then Miss Essie Ewell, exclaimed by several passengers as a promising poetess, read several of her poems. Elizabeth Godwin next gave us a violin solo, but in the midst of it a commotion started. Miss Sarah Mae Scull, the millionairess, had gone into hysterics, for someone had attempted to steal her fifty thousand dollar pearl necklace. Fortunately, the detectives of the ship were on the spot and caught the man in the act. Miss Scull was being lead from the room by a friend, Lady Graydon, I heard it whispered by someone near me, but I recognized her a.s Lois Stone. The detective followed leading out the thief. As they passed, to my surprise I recognized the detective as Fred Bivins., QL r'-'Tv'-gifs' -V-eng:--g-y.f'ff-' -5 if -j-ef-r L , -- i ,fi -yiiianl Irinfsgi. lea 5 fi-1 5214.15 fi .tif e , V ef V - .- " -fri -f 1 ,. . f.

She seemed very glad to see me, but was retiring to her stateroom for the night, and I de- cided to go to mine. How I happened to have one I do not know, but I found the key in my pocket, and at the time it seemed most natural. I In the morning I found my friend on deck with a crowd' of other people waiting for the mail plane. She mentioned that it was indeed surprizing how many of our old classmates were on board. "See that dignified looking gentleman over there," she said. "That is Frank Beard who is now editor-in-chief of the New York Times. And the important looking business man talking to him is Henry Cornelius who has taken over the operation of the Ford Manufacturing Plant." ' Just then I heard a noise as of sleigh bells and a queer looking figure clad in green from tip to toe came into view. He was dressed much like an old fashioned jester and, as he came hopping along, was singing a comic song that made everyone laugh. "Wlio in the world is that?" I gasped in amazement. Nancye laughed. "Oh, that is James Brown, our popular jester. He has made quite a fortune and name for himself in Europe." The jester hopped merrily on down the deck, but my attention was distracted by a general excitement. "See, the mail plane is coming." Upon looking up, sure enough from behind a cloud came a mighty plane. For an instant, it hovered' over us, then glided down onto the upper deck of our ship where a landing platform had been provided for it. In a few minutes more the bags of mail were being taken from the plane and those to be carried back to the continent loaded into it. The pilot and his helpers got out to refresh themselves before starting back. "VVhy, the pilot looks like Leonard Wine," I remarked. "So it is," Nancye replied, "and I believe those other men with him are Carlton Slayton, Roland Church and Julian Christian." The men from the plane disappeared' into the interior of the ship and we 'became interested in receiving our mail. We were quite amused by the excitement of a red haired gentleman who had not received his morning paper and was carrying on a lively argument with Oliver Diehl, First Office rof the ship. "Do you recognize him?" N ancye asked me. "Wlio, the Officer?" "No, the other man. It is Graham Philpotts, the great writer." Then she called my attention to a group of school teachers among whom were Mildred Massey, Mary Adams, Mary Branch and Miriam Christian. They were a commission from the State of Virginia return- ing from the study of educational developments abroad. .., .,n-- ff- ,,,-- AY-. U..d...,- V - . ,H H., 1 s or ...J V -.H f...' ' ji , fj,f,n, 2, J f- .wiv -:ui uw l, 3 A little later we went to meet Captain Wills who had offered to show us over the ship. Many were the sights we saw but there were some that especially made an impression upon me. Down in the boiler room were men tending the oil burners feeding oil flames to the huge furnaces. VVhen one working near us turned around, we saw that it was Richard Henderson. It seemed he had patented the burners and was there to see how they worked. In the kitchen we found Virginia IVilliamson as chief cook. I-Ier sauces were said' to be making the line famous. In the wireless room Virginia Cox was chief operator while Marguerite Fixary and Mamie Jones were her helpers. At different times certain stewardesses were pointed out to us who were respectively Frances Gibson, Helen Burcher, Ethel Allen and Valora Sartin. They were making a study of possible better- ments in the service of the Steamship Company. Passing through the beauty saloon we found Shirley Diggs at the head of it, while Mary Hamlin was hair dresser and Goldie Greenspon manicurist. Captain IVills also introduced us to Edna Davis the hostess of the ship. Edna told us that Marcus Smith was Quartermaster and that "Buck" Chand- ler also worked on board. On asking what he did we were informed that his chief occupation was winding the victrola. She a.lso told us that Margaret Morris and Dorothy Lehman were buyers for some of the big shops in New York and were just returning from a trip to Paris. VVhile we were still talking to Edna, the ship gave a sudden lurch and continued to roll badly. A storm had come upon us so the Captain was obliged to leave to see that things went well with the ship. Nancye returned to her stateroom so I was left alone. In wandering around, I met Edna Colburne and Adelle Amos. Edna was secretary to Sarah Mae and Adelle to a millionaire in Arkansas. She had been spending her vacation abroad. Soon I wen on deck. By this time night had come on andthe ship was still rolling considerably. I was standing by the rail when sud- denly the ship lurched so far to the side that before I knew what had happened, I found myself falling, falling and finally hit the sea with a splash. Fo ra long time I knew nothing, but, on regaining my senses, found myself lying on a beach with the water lapping at my feet. It was night and raining. I was soaked to the skin. 'What was that noise? Yes, someone was calling me. I answered and the reply was, gcWl161'9 in the world' have you been? Come home to supper at once." I asked no questions and made no explanations, but followed silently. It was much nicer to be invited home to supper when one was wet and hungry than to go drifting around in mid ocean in the blackest night. Q F'-1 v, 'fr-'--sf:-1.-L --N-Q32 l--n-s1f-ff--f.- f J, 9 I .

Besides planning all features for the assembly pro- grams, the council has endeavored to establish throughout the entire student body those factors which go to play so great a part in the life of a truly great and successful school: "Honor", "Loyalty", Depend- abilityn, and' "TrustWorthiness". Other plans which were successfully carried out Were: bulletin board secured, with aid of other organiza- tions, a student room obtained, Christmas gifts delivered to poor. The Council members feel that there is still a great deal left un- done, and as they pass on, they hope that, with the aid of others and of God, the Council of Tomorrow Will strive always for that which is higher and better, and will cause our Dear Alma Mater to shine as one of the greatest and strongest schools in Virginia, OFFICERS MAE TEUFEL ......,,....... ,.,......,...........,.............. .......,......,..

The chief function of the Athletic Council, which is the governing body of the Athletic Association, is the awarding of the high school "N" to deserving athletes without partiality, and the carrying out of disciplinary policies among the athletes for the good of the school and clean athletics. This Council consists of a president, vice-president, a secretary, a treasurer, and the managers of football, baseball, basket- ball, track, and- tennis. It has for its advisers, the Principal of the High School and the Athletic Director. During its existence the Athletic Council has passed upon many important questions of policy, administered finance, and has aided the Principal in the maintenance and progress of all things possible toward the advancement of high school spirit, citizenship, and utility. I The President has always been the captain of the football team because' he has been found to be a man of the highest type, the Vice- President has always been an outstanding athlete, the Secretary and Treasurer have usually been chosen from the girls so that they might have a vote in what is going on, and thereby keep in touch with the various situations. 1 Q Trials and- tribulations have been theirs, and many times have they sat in solemn session and disposed of matters as weighty as any ever confronting a high school student, because they dealt with moral obligations sacred and intangible, where honor was the chief criterion and a man's word was his bond. Truly a wonderful example of the fine training brought about through student activities. A C ff 6 4 ML ,, I M: ,N Alf ff' WS 'If I ff 15" V I, I t 2' :Nj . i TQ ..

The Beacon Newspaper Staff of 1926-27 accomplished three things never before achieved in the history of the school paper, namely, the publishing of the paper every week during the school year, the introduction of cuts and cartoons, and the selling of Beacons on the honor plan. The reason for a weekly publication was to secure fresh news. VVhen the paper came out bi-monthly some of the news was necessarily almost two weeks old, while under the present plan, all of the news items are up-to-the-minute and fresh. A Cartoons were introduced with the idea in View of enlivening the paper and making it look attractive. Although these cuts cost the staff considerable, they know that the results were well worth the expenditure. Perhaps never before in the history of high school papers in Virginia, or even the United States, have the copies been sold on unattended racks, where the students might take their copy and drop in their coin afterwards. The plan had its risks and dangers of failure, but the staff realized that with the high moral tone cultivated and taught in the Newport News High School the chances were very slim of papers being taken without having been paid for. Their highest expectations were filled when it was found at the end of the year that not a single copy of the Beacon was missing as Hunaccounted for". The past year was one of much success. Beacon sales materially increased 5 and the weekly won much commendation. ff- X T fi 'J fa QQ, I Mfffx, , 4. -.

The first class in drama was organized last September with a membership of nearly thirty. The work which they did included a study of many plays, stage and theatrical definitions and terms, dramatic construction, voice training and stage presence, lighting and costuming, makeup, acting, and various other subjects connected with the staging, acting, producing, and managing of dramatic productions. Their practical work included the staging of a one-act play presented in assembly by the public speaking class, the senior class night play, and "Captain Applejackn. VVith the beginning of the second semester the class increased in size, and the work became more largely practical. The three presentations of "Peg C' My Heart", the assistance given in "My Spanish Sweetheart" and the fashion show, as well as the assembly program presented are examples of the work of the department, "Captain Applejackl' was presented in December, and proved very popular. lt. was staged by the drama class, but the try-outs for parts were open to the entire school. XVilton Bowers carried off the chief honors in this production, as the timid "Ambrose Applejohn" who finds himself foiling adventurers in most heroic fashion, after being inspired by his dream of treachery and mutiny aboard a pirate ship. Miss Guarina Alvarez was charming in the part of "Madame Anna Valeska-the Russian Dancer". In no other role could her beauty and fiery temperament have been better revealed. Miss Frances Epes played the lovable "Poppy", Ambrose's Ward, who teaches him that romance may be found at home. Bankhead VVarren as "Borolsky", the villain, gave a fine performance, a.s did Meredith Powell and Miss Virginia O'Rourke in the character roles of Lush and Aunt Agatha. Miss Daisy Moore and Edward Morris in the minor parts of Mrs. andtMr. Pengard played excellently, and the various other members of the cast seemed in character and competent through- out the comedy. The costumiiig, lighting, and scenic effects were excellently done and added much to the play. The cast was as follows: Lush, Meredith Powell, Poppy Faire, Miss Frances Epes, Aunt Agatha, Miss Virginia O'Rourke, Ambrose Applejohn, NVilton Bowers, Anna Valeska, Miss Guarina Alvarez, Mrs. Pengard, Miss Daisy Moore, Horace Pengard, Edward Morris, Ivan Borolsky, Bankhead Vifarren, Palmer, Miss Marion Smith, Dennet, Roy Charles, Johnny Jason, Howard Scammon, Pirates-Hud- son Livesay, Vifeymouth Padgett, Albert Charles, Joe Saunders.

E I' 7 lf 7 77 , The second semester s play was Peg O My Heart , a three-act comedy, 'gf presented in the high school auditorium March 25, and June 3, at the Liberty 'l Theatre, Fort Monroe, March 26, and at NVilliamsburg, April 30. , This production was acted, staged, and produced entirely by the drama pl . . . ,441 class. The business management was divided between the class and the Beacon li , magazine staff, which sponsored the comedy. f'Peg O, My Hearth was undoubtedly one of the most popular plays in the history of the school. lt set a high standard for the future activities of V it the drama class, and was in every way a smooth and finished production. 5-A57 Miss Daisy Moore in the tit.le role of "Peg" dominated the comedy from ' beginning to end, and a. performance that was almost professional in tone. lf.. Her lrisli type of beauty, her natural vivacity and charm, all aided in the 19. portrayal. But in the final analysis it was real acting that put the part of ,i , "Peg" across and made her seem to live before the audience. Edwin 'tBuck" Chandler was a complete surprise in the role of "Alaric", for this was his first dramatic appearance, and his ease and ability were remark- I . . . . . . tiff' able. At every presentation Mr. Chandler carried his audience with him, and gave a performance both life-like and humorous. His interpretation was clever and individual, and will long be remeinberecl by all those who saw it. - il . . . . 1.2.-il Bankhead Wa1'rei1 made a handsome and convincine' leadinfw' man while , L I D Z1 7 VL' . . , . ' . . if the other lovers, Miss Sallie Moss as ' ' Ethel' ', and Meredith Powell as "Christian ,Q Brent" were charming and natural. Miss Mae Teufel played extremely well in her first dramatic appearance as 'KM1-s.

Miss Moore seemed equally at home in her scenes of humor ll J, and pathos, as well putting plenty of fire and spirit into her angry rebellion lirji at the Chichester traditions and di0'nit f.

Miss Dorothy Crane, anew member of the school faculty, assumed the leadership of the two literary clubs last September, and under her coaching many promising readers and speakers have received valuable aid. Chief among the readers inthe societies was Miss Virginia Porter, who won the Reader's Inedal in February, and was also chosen for the triangulars. Closely following Miss Porter were Miss Gitella Lipsitz, Miss Louise Applewhite and Miss Frances Graff. Miss Edla Davis captured public Speaking honors during the past year, with Miss Louise WVinder furnishing her considerable competi- tion at the mid-year contests. The question used in both the Literary Night and triangular de- bates was, "Resolved: That the short ballot, as recommended by Gov- ernor Byrd, be adopted". Arthur Hanson and Miss Adeline LaPorte, upholding the affirmative, defeated Alan Graff and Morris Smith, on the negative, in the Commencement forensic contest. However, Mr. Graff was awarded the medal as the best ind-ividual debater of the four. Witli the exception of Morris Smith, who was replaced by Frank Beard, these same debaters will represent this school against Norfolk and Portsmouth. If these coming contests are to be as exciting as those held last year, the three schools may look forward to them with keen anticipation. I tizwf- Uzif- ll 5i'f?.NN'f ' 'X r I lx., A.-ii.

In the first half a Newport man, ,grabbing the ball from the ground, sprinted seventy yards for the touchdown, and Maury unfolded a clever passing attack and counted six points 4 before the half was over. The half ended 7-6 in favor s . of Newport. y LX i Thegsecond half was a repetition of the first. Maury i made the next touchdown and this time kicked goal. Newport lined up for a tight to win.

Basketball season was under way! 3 ' ,T . The cage ball, game at the local institution was distinctly a minor sport ,Q several years ago. However, great improvements in the school system, coupled with the growing popularity of the game has brought basketball to the fore in ,Ffa great strides. ' Rn. ' To inaugurate the 1926-1927 season, the team was placed in the charge of i fi Julius Conn, a former member of the University of Virginia basketball team. ,il , 'gif Coach Conn was somewhat handicapped due to the fact that he had to install a new system of coaching and to offset this, hard work and strenuous practices X W were resorted to. , if V i The greatest handicap, however, came in the size of the players. Modern .X , basketball today is based on the theory that a good, big man is better than a good, my little man. The local team was composed mostly of small players. In every f,lfi,:'. pl game that was lost this handicap was the outstanding weakness. f i Speed was the only method by which the team could function efficiently and , i 71, this became the watchword of the Builder camp. Many a long afternoon of prac- ,j tice was spent with the words "pass', and "speed" emphasized in no small xi' manner. ' ,' Practice games occupied a large share of the earlier training in prepara- i t1Qn for the champlonship games with Hampton, Maury and Woodrow' Wilson, 'M , M l':i-'x Um- H'1Inis'f'vl'l.',v1:Y H QZF - f N' -- . - 3-5,4 K , .

VVith only three letter men as a nucleus, Coach Wliite has been obliged to take advantage of every opportunity to practice the team As was the case of track and basketball, the baseball team is composed mostly of small players, young and inexperienced players but players who have the will to learn and the ability to play and- who are sure to bring honor to Newport News High School in the near future, if not now As this book goes to print, it seems like pitching will be handled by Captain Edwin Chandler and Charles Dozier. Captain Chandler is also a first class outfielder. Mitchell, a newcomer, is among the promis ing Hrookiesl' on the hurling staff. , The catching department is capably filled' by Suttle, with Leake and VVhitesell ready to fill in an emergency. The infield, composed of Allmond, third base, Joynes, short stop Hundley, second base, and Jordan, first base, seems to have hit the stride with Mouring, Vlloltz, 'Wilder, Collins and Moore ready to play at any time. The outfield is being patroled by Whitesell, Forrest, Wills, and Chandler, with Paxson, Harwood, Moore' and Gray as possible con tenders. u ' l Y,-:.-,.-Y V .i,- ,c,A, 1, ,A ,n,.c,,,-, , ....

The team of last year succeeded in breaking even with a hastily Q constructed schedule, winning one match and losing one match. Hamp- if my ton fell before the superior stroking of the Newport racqueteers while "tit . . . Maury nosed out over the Slnpbuilders after a long, close fight. - Q, 36 V5.1 I The team has been handicapped by the shortage of tennis courts ,T li ll and have been forced to Hborrowt' courts to put on their matches. ' ilffl' . . i ,Q f Since the sport was yet a baby in the athletic circles at Newport, ll will no letters were awarded to the players. Those playing last year were: lsr, Charles Scammon, Henry Hooper, Phillip Marshall CCapt.j, Meredith Powell, Ralph Lenz, and Sam Buxton. Powell served as Manager, ,ff though not regular elected. , l' l l w Tennis likewise secured recognition on the Athletic Council, having a vote in those activities concerning athletics in general. fi 1 The sport lost three men through graduation, Scammon, Hooper, if and Marshall, but added new material to their numbers in the persons rf T of "Dick" Dear, "Dick" Jordan, Kenneth WVills, Saunders Vlfhite, and S I ' Allen Moessinger. . ,gr ' , ' v For the teams this year, Sam Buxton probably played stellar ball, '71 though the teams a.ll deserve credit, working as they do with insuificient , ,ii equipment. The big victory for the season was the win over the "Crab- il tif' ' l 'Q EQ' ber" team, a final crush for the year. A ,gs :QW Ni fl ,il Y L - -- ---f .4-V.. .--M -s.L.-lr? .w...f.,..

February graduation tore big holes in the ranks of the local cinder artists, thus leaving raw and unseasoned material With which to work. Under the leadership of the director of athletics, F. R. VVhite, who needs no further introduction to the local sport followers, the team rounded out into at fighting aggregation capable of giving some of the best a hard run for the honors. Although unable to win the highest honors in any meet in which they participated, the locals always acquitted themselves in a manner in which they may be justly proud. The track team at N, N. H. S. has always been handicapped in their train- ing, due to the fact that they have never had a cinder track on which to practice. Anyone can readily see this great disadvantage under which the locals worked. i fi , ,W ll . , - , -- , -'wrt -fri" " Vi -at 1 51, ..,f,.- ,ings rfiifw' Fage Gmc liimalrefl Tv F., KF. an l 1,1 iw :Z X, W N, I A Z. ,HL ix X. 4 ,Af ITN- K 1 Q fx -'sv '!Ci'i':" l -P NSN' ' ,fs ga. e ,fu Z-'J p p ' 51 , i - ,E 4 -4 4 5 cu" yy ,, , r .,, 1 5. ,I Q ' ' ' "4 'r lu X I1 as R "" W Xu.

A committee in search of a play comes to the house of' the Muses seeking something new and original. Each Muse in turn, "Comedy", ,"Tragedy", etc., pleads to write the play and the Committee is at a loss to decide which is the best. "Any Play", an interloper, tells them she can save them time and trouble. A happy idea finally strikes the com- mittee. They call the Cook and order all the Muses put into a pot,- "boil it down and make a sauce that 's sweet and a play that can't be beat." The action of the play from the pot, "My Spanish Sweetheart", takes place in Haarlem, Holland, during the Feast of the Tulips. A prize has been offered for the finest tulips and all the children of the village bring their tulips to the Public Square to be judged. Kit and Kat, as anyone can see, have the finest tulips but Greta and Blitz are so anxious for the prize that they exchange the labels of Kit and Kat's tulips with their own. Several English girls with their chaperone and two guides repre- senting the 'tWorld Tours" happen to visit Haarlem on this day. Jim- my and Tommy are typical Yankee boys and the English girls have lost their hearts to them, but Jimmy does not return May's affections be- cause he does not think she has enough f'pep". A group of' Spanish dancers arrive as entertainers aft the celebra- tion. A bull fight has also been arranged. Jimmy falls desperately in love with Carlita, a Spanish dancer, much to the disgust of May and a Spanish nobleman who is wooing her. May has the dancer arrested for an alleged theft of' a diamond ring. The Stadtholder and Burgomasters arrive to award the prize and everybody is surprised when it is learned that it is given to Greta and Blitz. Kit and Kat protest, whereupon the Stadtholder withholds the prize and starts an investigation. 4 ' 111' 1 5, ' iQ 1 A- 1 ' .,1' ' 'T' L 1 X-f K 1 T.1 ' . vx! 1'15x3 W 331115. 11" .,, egl'1 .

He and Tommy are outfitted as toreadors, while Juan, the real bull-fighter gives them a lesson. Luckily for Jimmy, the bull has been conquered without his help, but to further complicate the situation, he discovers that May has trumped up the false cha.rge against Carlita and also arranged for a duel between him and Don Pedro, the Spanish nobleman. At this junc- ture, Jimmy decides that May has about a.s much "pep" as is necessary. Greta and Blitz confess that they changed' the tags, Kit and Kat are awarded the prize and all ends happily.

The ripcned wheat, swaying in the cooling suin- nier breeze, gleanied, the blue flax flowcrs nodded their heads gently ,i ,, to each other, the green, sturdy tobacco pla.nts seeined suddenly trans- ilg , formed. But, to the girl standing on the green hill, there was no beauty in her surroundings. The scene merely freshened in her nieniory the ll thoughts of lrer labors and the killing of her youth. Every line in her tense, slender figure spoke, as plainly as words, "Rebellion". ll HAnd yet," her thoughts ran on, Hthe fortunate say that life is a golden bubble, blown from a fairy pipe, and kicked about by dancing, lifill silver-shod elfin feet. But it isn't true! lt is not true! Life is an inferno f of slavery. No one is free," liilll "Mollyl Molly! Come, dear." She turned, as her mother, stand- 3gVt", ing in the doorway of the ugly, unpainted farmhouse, called to her. Slowly the girl came down the hill and walked toward the house. -, Her anger rose to an even, higher.point as she realized that she was Q, obeying another of Mons Kerons' iron rules: that the whole fainily be lim seated at the table before he reached the house. i'i'A l She went in the house and seated herself at the table. Her mother ul and her sister, Lind, were already there. None of thein found it neces- sary to speak, perhaps they were too tired. After a while, they heard l T f Mons l wagon coine up in the yard. Mary Keron rose wearily and began bringing the food froin the kitchen where it had been kept warrn, pend- ,flag ing his arrival. When Mons entered the rooin, she was again seated. I "All ready and waiting for ine. 7' He greeted thein with his unvary- ,bfi ing forniula. No one answered, no answer was expected, il' Mons, after he had appeased his appetite, sat back in his chair and ll surveyed the other three nienibers of his faini ly. First, his eyes rested on his wife, and he looked at her with satis- ff lg faction. Before their inarriage, she had been the belle of the county- l-,-fl a pretty, entertaining creature of twenty. But he had effectively suc- l f ceeded in crushing her during their twenty-five years of inarriage. She had become a thin, iniddle-aged wonian, whose back was slightly bent and whose face was patient and careworn. ll Next, his eyes traveled to Lind. Again, there was satisfaction in his glance.

Mxseadffw '57 tr hire a man who would not do the work half as well as she did. Yes, she was quiet, gentle, and broken-spirited, no danger of her leaving the old farm. Then Molly came within his ra.nge of vision. There, his satisfac- tion ended. In the first place, she wastoo pretty, with her tall, slender figure, wavy chestnut hair, and steel-gray eyes. Mons thought of the spirited chestnut pony he had bought a year ago. It had been hard, hard work to tanie the creature, but, under his doniineering persistence, it had become one of his niost valued plow horses-slow, gentle, humb- led. And Mons chuckled to himself. Oh, yes, he had his hopes and ambitions. y At last ,he arose. His getting up was a signal that they had his permission to wash the dishes and later go to bed. As the sun sank lower behind the green hill, Molly, straightening up from the ground for a niinute's rest, was attracted by the sight of a horsenian riding up into the yard. Even at the distance, she recognized the familiar figure of Mark Alton, the half-breed horse-trader, who came each year to do business with Mons Keron. As she bent down to go on with her work, her mother called her. She felt as though she could not have gone on much longer with the hateful, tiresome work she was doing. lValking toward the house, her thoughts took shape.. "lVhy do I stay here? lVhy do I endure his cruelty I? Why hayen't I the courage to go away? He-" she never spoke or thought of her father in any other way-His getting more exacting and sterner each day. IVhy can't I get away?" When she reached the house, Mark had gone with Mons to look at the horses. The two men returned and Molly and Mark greeted each other simply. Mark noted the fire in the girl's eyes and remembered that each year that he canie, she was more beautiful than the preceding year. Molly saw the steady, dark eyes of the man regarding her and his look of pity for her. They were alone for a few minutes after supper. 'fGoing to the dance in Ruthford?" Mark asked. HOf course not," Molly answered. "Suppose, after the others have gone to bed, you come down and go with me."

She answered him brusquely, but he saw that the idea had caught her fancy. "You don't get out very often. VVhy not go?" he tempted her. "I'll bring you home early." "Well-a.ll right, I'll go." But the family did not go to bed early. Mark had gone, supposedly, to Ruthford, an hour ago. Molly went to the kitchen and lighted a candle. "Are you going to bed'?H her mother asked. "I'll be up in a little while. I have these socks to patch first." Upstairs she dressed in her best, and a very poor best it was, too, she reflected ruefully. Then she tiptoed quietly down the unused front stairs, opened the big, front door, and stepped on the porch. She could see Mark standing out of the bright moonlight in the shadow of the huge elm tree. 'tWe can't possibly walk all the way to Rutlifordj' she told him, somewhat hysterically. ' "The horses are down the road a little farther," he answered in a low voice. ' As they rode a.long, a horseman came toward them. In the bright moonlight, the faces of all three were plainly discernable. t'There is Dirk Tarsonlw Molly exclaimed. 'tAnd what about him?'l Mark asked. 'tHe is one of my father's friends. Can he be going to see him? Dirk will surely mention having seen me." "IVhy worry about the improbable?" And they rode on. Mary Keron a.nd Lind had gone up to bed. Mons, reading a farm journal, was startled, although he never would have admitted it, by a knock at the door. Opening the door, he saw Dirk Tarson, a neighbor- ing farmer, and one of his few friends, standing on the step. "I have come to talk about the wheatf' These two wasted no time in preliminaries. They understood each other thoroughly. "I met your daughter and- Mark Alton on the way over here. I knew you liked Mark, but-well, not quite well enough for that." Dirk regarded Mons inquiringly. Mons gave no signp "Yes,', he replied, t'Mark is a young man who is doing well. lVhen will you start harvesting your wheat?

I heard you say that you were going to hire a reaperf' 'LI was intending to hire the reaper," Mons answered slowly, "but I don't think that I can afford it this year. The girls and I will man- age." "You had the reaper last year," Dirk reminded him, Hand' you have an even larger crop than last year." "VVe7ll manage." t'Mons, that granite quarry. in your wheat field should have a rail around it. That's a mighty dangerous place. A stumble at the edge of the pit, and-." I-Ie spread his hands expressively. "There wonft be anyone around here who doesn't know the place well., I can at least put ,off that expense until later." "I just thought that I would tell you about the reaper, in case you wanted it." Dirk rose to go. The next morning as they were seated at the breakfast table, Mons spoke. 'tl7Ve shall begin cutting the wheat this morning," he said casually. I 'tBut We haven't finished the west tobacco iield, yet. Besides, I thought that Dirk Tarson had the reaper this week," Molly said quickly. "The west tobacco iield can wait. You and Lind and I will cut the wheat with the scythes in the barn. The expense of the reaper is too great." He said no more, but rose from the table and walked toward the barn, Lind and Molly following him, They, Lind and Molly, took the seythes and went to the wheat field. They started cutting the wheat in the cool of the morning. The sun climbed slowly to its zenith beating down on the girls' heads merciless- ly. Even the wind fanning their cheeks was hot. The heat became almost unbearable. They worked quickly, as experienced workers do. Vlfhen they felt they could go on no longer, they heard the bell that called them to dinner ring. The third day was even worse. The heat of the June days was becoming hourly more intense. The reaping must last at least five days longer. Lind, who had never been strong, would not be able to stand it, Molly knew. V At last, Mons gave the order to go to the house. Molly turned wearily to wait for Lind. .

But all thoughts of Lind were driven from her mind by the voice of a man coming from behind one of the immense stacks of wheat. "It is I, Mark," the man said. "Come back as soon as you can without arousing suspicion. I have something to tell you." Molly, who had stopped suddenly, walked casually on. Mons, in- tently examining some of the wheat, had not noticed her. They sat down at the table, but Lind did not appear. Mons said nothing of her a.bsence. Molly and Mary did not question him. VVhen they were in the kitchen, Mary said in a low voice, "IVhy do you suppose Lind isn't here? Mons doesn't usually send her out as late as this." "Maybe he sent her to Dirk Tarson's to get the reaper, after all," Molly told her. "I don't see why he didn't get it in the first place, he .certainly intended to." They still spoke in low voices, although Mons had gone out. - "VVas Dirk here the night that Mark came?" Molly inquired. "Yes Wl1y?" her mother asked. "Nothing," Molly knew now why Mons had' not hired the reaper. She could not understand, though, why he had changed his mind and sent Lind, especially at night, to get it. Certainly it was not because he had taken pity on them. There was neither mercy nor generosity in his Whole makeup. As she hung up her dishcloth, Molly said, "I am going out in the cool awhile, Mother. Don't wait up for me. I-Ie will think that I have gone to bed.'? "I thought that you were not comingf' he said. "I came as quickly as I could," she said. Hlllhy are you here I?" He told her simply. 'LI am going away tonight. I want you to go with me." - She was speechless with surprise. "IN7hy, that is absurd, Mark," she said finally, "The wheat hasnlt been iinished yet. Lind would have to get it in alonef' "Let Mons hire someone. Mons Keron can easily afford to hire a dozen helpers. Will you come?" KKNO.77 "I shall be under the elm tree as I was the other night, about midnifrht. " , "Illliere is no need for you to wait. I canlt come. I shall not come. H ' I shall wait for you." - 1' I I l flglilggfffe. il't'l:AQ.QIIi I - 4 P Molly left him and went to the house. Her mother was standing at the window, looking anxiously out. Neither Mons nor Lind had come in. As Molly and Mary climbed the stairs, they heard a hub-bub outside. t'Oh, I knew it, " Mary groaned, running to throw open the window. Fear left Molly and in its place came calm and self-control. 'WVhat has happened 'V' she inquired. of the man. f'Your sister, while carrying a sheaf of wheat, supposedly tripped and fell into the gra.nite quarryf, ' "How did you get here A?" she asked the doctor. Molly knew that Lind had not tripped, she knew her way about too well. "Your father, suspecting something, went to look about. Then he came to get help.', By this time, Lind, white and still, had been placed on her own bed. The doctor was examining her quietly and expertly. The little group was standing out in the hall, awaiting his diagnosis. Mons was not there. Mary Keron stared stonily in front of her. Molly stood by the doctor's side. At last, the doctor straightened up. "Your sister will live, but she will be crippled for'life," he told Molly. Finally the house quieted down. A white-clad nurse was seated by Lind's bed. Lind was still unconscious. Mary and Molly went to their rooms. Thoughts of Mark crowded Molly's brain. She was determined not to go away with him, At twelve o'clock she was promptly awakened from her brief, troubled sleep by the striking of the great clock downstairs. She got up and dressed herself. "I am not going. I am not going. I shall not go." She reiterated the phrase to herself, lifelessly and monotonously. She wa.lked softly down the stairs. She would tell him that she was not going. Reaching the porch, she knew, suddenly, that she was going. She felt no remorse at leaving her mother with poor, helpless Lind. Mons would be forced to get men to work on the farm, now. It would be, after all, a practical way out for all of them. Mark was waiting for her under the huge elm tree, out of the bright moonlight. HI knew that you would come,', he said as h etook her hand. "I had to," Molly answered.
