rowing out of the requirements of life, there are seven pur-
poses of education which are commonly accepted as the
best possible reasons why you should go to school during the
period of your youth. 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

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-
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.

Ruth seems always to be drifting into Dream-

"Por she is a jolly good fellow,
Which nobody can deny!" '
And it is as true as the saying is old. Speak
to Catherine and she either grins, smiles or gig-
gles, all of which we like very much to see.
Worry never seems to be in her company-
Gloom as far away as the stars and moon. Ev-
erything runs smooth in her channel and that
is the reason we, love her.

CREED OF THE CLASS OF FEBRUARY, 1927 I
By ELIZABETH JONES -
' After completing four of the happiest and most pleasant years
of our lives we, the graduating class of February, nineteen hundred
and twenty-seven, do most heartily unite and turn our thoughts to-
wards those things which have been as a guide and ideal to us. I
I. We believe in our Mothers and Fathers who were ther iirst
and greatest friends we ever had. f Q
II. We believe in the ideals and standards for which the Newport
News High School stands. y f
III. To Mr. Fred M. Alexander and our Faculty we 'pay our
deepest respects and want them to know that we do appreciate their
ability to counsel and advise us for the best. ' ' -
IV. We believe in our School Board and Mr. Joseph H. Saunders
who have done everything possible for the advancement of education.
V. We believe in our athletics as 'a means of physical training,
promoting clean sportsmanship and developing school spirit.
V. We believe in our BEACON as the biggest and best of its
kind and as an outlet of the talents of our students. ' W
VII. We believe in our literary societies, our orchestra and the
other various clubs as essential to the welfare of our school and as a
promoter of a bigger and better school.
VIII. VVe believe in Newport News as the city of opportunities
and are sure that some day she will be one of our greatest ports.
IX. VVe believe in Virginia as the best, the most beautiful and
most historical state in the Union.
X. We believe in the United States of America as the leader of
all nations and as the greatest of all democracies. .
XI. Above all we believe in God the maker of the heavens and
earth and as the creator and just ruler ,of man.

I-IISTORY OF THE CLASS OF FEBRUARY, 1927
EMILY O. 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.

A building that is one of the finest in the South. 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.
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.
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.

PROPHECY OF THE CLASS OF FEBRUARY, 1927
By MAX Lnvv -
Many years have passed, leaving me yet a bachelor.
'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

head, and a wooden sword in his hand. His eyes lighted on us, and
rushing to us, he asked, 'Wlfhich side are you on?" 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
'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-

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:
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
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

that Waltei' Cole was the latest sheik, and meek little Miss Ethel Roh-
ertson was the leading lady in Elizabeth Roioe's newest picture. 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 ca.mp, 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
The "Ball of Time" seemed to contract. Turkey grew smaller

and smaller, and finally faded' out. 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

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."

I found myself on a desert. 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
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-
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.

Until as seniors We were billed

Our paths must henceforth sever,
Though memories of our Newport days

It's hard to say a last farewell
Unto our friends of school,

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
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
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.

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF JUNE, 1927
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-
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

which was given to the class presenting the best appearance. 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.

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.

PROPHECY OF THE CLASS OF JUNE, 1927
Essin .Liivrns EWVELL
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

that Philip Serio who had become a theatrical producer at Monte Carlo
was endeavoring to launch an old successful "Peaches Browning" play
which has as leading characters Roy Charles and Mary Dozier with
her brother Charles Dozier, a famous Valentino of his day. 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-

Harvard game of '31 scribbling and writing, fussing and in general
doing nothing until VVillie Jensen and' Mae Teufel came along with a
portable typewriter and demanded the news and set them working and
thinking as gentlemen should do, but do rarely except when under the
direction of a lady or ladies. .
y And in the newspaper line I found many of my friends, so many
that I could' hardly believe it was true but sure enough there they were:
Morris Smith, Willie Lightfoot and Pat Knowles, the latter who had
distinguished himself as a second Irvin S. 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
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-
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.,

This event broke up the audience so I went to find my friend, Miss
Buxton, to congratulate her upon her success. 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.

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.

During the first semester the Student Council Was very active in
all school Work. 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,

The present Athletic Association was formed in nineteen hundred
twenty-three for the purpose of fostering and running all athletics
of Newport News High School as one of the component parts of the
then existing student activities group.
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

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.

This year, for the first time in the history of our high school, dramatics
have a.chieved the dignity of a regular place in the curriculum. 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
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
"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,

, 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 ga.ve 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.

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. Chichester", and Edward Morris
li il as "Mr, Hawkes", and Miss Frances Epes as t'Bennetl' were perfectly at
H' home in their parts.
id-fa It would be extremel f difficult to choose outstandin ' moments from f'Pe0'
. n C:
J O' My Heart". 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. Her scenes with Mr. Chandler es eci-

'Q ffl the second act were erhais outstandinoz

- VIMISSL DOROTHY CRANE, Faculty Adviser '
Continuing their plan of working together as one group, with one
Set of officers, the joint Philolethian and Eureka Literary Societies
held a successful contest at the ,February Commencement exercises,
and 'lat this writing are making intensive preparations for the annual
triangular reading, speaking, and debating contests with Maury and
Woodrow Wilson on April 28 and May 2.
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

I M the hardest game of the season. The game was replete with thrills and beautiful

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

in i straight Cl0W11 the field for a touchdown. The fact that Newport News ran thru 1

s' l indicates the relative strength of the two teams.

,i i Hardly had the dull thud of the igskin died away before one could hear '
,A 2 . . p . . . I
, Q the rush of swift feet, the shrill blast of the referee 's whistle coming in monoton- I ,
,, ous regularity between the constant bounce, bounce, bounce of the dribbler's T ,
,KE antics. 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,

The first championship game of the season was played with Hampton and
after a spirited contest the Builders emerged Winners, 39-29. Next came the
-"wonder" five of Maury, who defeated the .locals by
the score of 29-20. Between the championship games,
the locals met and defeated some of the best teams
in this section, while the defeats were few and far
between. For the next championship game, the Ship-
builders journeyed to Portsmouth and were smoth- H
ered under a deluge of field goals and fouls to loseg
41-19. - '
Beginning the second round of championship
games, Hampton Was again the
victim of the Shipbuilders by the
score of 40-19. And then came
Maury again, but Newport's
threat didn't materialize and
Maury was at her best to win
53-21. The last game on the
championship schedule resulted
a great victory for N. N. H. S.

Although hard hit by the graduation of nine men, the baseball
team of 1927 has taken on a new lease of life and, up to this writing is
seriously threatening to push their opponents for state honors..
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 '

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
The sport lost three men through graduation, Scammon, Hooper,

' TRACK, 1927
With the approach of spring, the track athletes of the local high school
started training. 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.

Ii STUDENT STATISTICS OR WHO'S WI-IO IN 1927.
. A . . . eq
L-Nl Who 's lVho in the High School 1S each year a question of interest A fi
among the students. This year the selection of these statistics has been p g 'I
handled in a new way, for a two-fold purpose-to select the students
I justly deserving the honor and to carry out an original idea in the fea- lx
x i 1 ,
, ture section of our book in keeping with the Early American design Tlafg
, of the annual of 1927. I '
' , As nearly as possible those characters prominent in the history '
A of Early America which suggest the characteristics of our students have l
. ' - f
ii' been selected and placed in Early American settings in this historic mf
' I . . ti
part of Virginia. if
,X Among the famous homes forming the background for these pic- q,
I tures we have been fortunate in using the well known "Audrey House", I -I
RQ "Tazewell Hall", the home of the Randolphs, the Peytons and the I ,
Nelsonsg "Carter's Grove", where Dolly Madison met her husband, ,L
and in which one of Tarleton's cavalrymen rode up the stairs on horse-
vp back, and the old "George lVythe Home". ,

-'MY SPANISH SWEETHEART' .
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
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

Meanwhile, Jimmy has been making violent love to Carlita who
promises to love him only, if-he will kill the bull. He and Tommy are
outfitted as toreadors, while Juan, the real bull-fighter gives them a
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 sun, sinking behind the green hill, turned all within its reach
ll-. ,E to a golden splendor. 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. ' There was no danger of her going away andforcing hini to

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
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." I

"'Impossible." 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
"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 have hired the reaper for next week. If you want it after that, I
I think that I can manage to get it for you, although it is already
promised to Lars Henkle. 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-
"You had the reaper last year," Dirk reminded him, Hand' you
have an even larger crop than last year."
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
'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. . I

"VVhy did he let her go on ahead?" she thought in amazement.
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?"
"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." -

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
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
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
