The Beacon Published v by the efaduaiang 7 Class of February I935 . Newport News High School Newport News Virginia THE BEACON DEDICATION v It is a prifvilege of the February class, 1935, to recognize a serfvice and loyalty which have extended for long, and to commemorate especially a friend- ship which has grown through these last four crowded years. The class salutes Willie Rowe Nelms, Secretary of the school, and with pride and pleasure the staff dedicates this annual to her. WILLIE RO1WE NEL FEBRUARY. 1935 MS THE BEACON SPONSOR'S MESSAGE v Too often we set upon our jobs of lifuing with the idea that unless -we can do efuerything better than the other fel- low, there is no need of attempting the task at all. Each of us has just an infini- tesimal place in the universe of things, yet that sphere is to be occupied by us alone. Let's fill it so perfectly that we bring assurance to the fellow lifving be- side us and contentment to oursel-ves with the knowledge that we hafve been useful to another. These two lines of Douglas Mal- loch express the thought quite aptly: "We can't all be captains, we"ve got to be crew, There's something for all of us ' here." E -Jeanette Ward. P FEBRUARY. 1935 MISS JEANETTE WARD, SPONSOR THE BEACON A MESSAGE TO THE SENIORS V In one of his moments of depression, Hamlet, the melancholy Dane, exclaims, "The world is out of joint: U cursed spite, that efuer I was born to set it right!" In leafving school and entering the actifuities of adult life, you are entering a world that seems to be out of joint-war, greed, selfish- ness, dishonesty in higlz places, scientific discofveries and inventions pro- ducing tevlznological displacement of employment, new modes of living and new theories of social relations have all contributed to a situation which requires us to critically examine all of our past modes of action and theories of gofuernment, religion and human relationships. You are con- fronted by a crisis out of which will come opportunities for serfoice sur- passing any previous age of history. President Roosevelt says, "This crisis can be met, but not in a day or a year, and education is a fvital factor in the meeting of it." Keep your mind alert, fluid, receptifve but critical, not accepting an idea because it is new nor rejecting it because it is old, but demanding reasoned proof of its aceeptability. Continue the pursuit of knowledge, keep your thoughts pure and your bodies clean, and thus keep yourself fit to aid in remaleing a world built upon the ideal of the brother- hood of man and the fatherhood of God. Then instead of Hanilet's cry of despair, you will joyfully exclaim with Browning, "God's in his heafven- 11ll's right with the world!" -Joseph H. Saunders.

A- IWIN'lY-I THE BEACON Caught In The Scuffle V U79 aka' Vol. I, No. 1. Spagetti dmits ?!:-?!Defeat Famous Lemming W alk er Falls Short of Reaching Goal. Professor Ura Spagetti, world famous lemming walker, who has just returned from Africa, states that his last lemming walk during which he covered over half the dis- tance around the globe, was a com- plete failure. Spagetti left from the front of the Newport News high school in a direction that would make him pass through Africa. His first seeminglyi unconquerable obstacle was the Newport News Shipbuild- ing and Dry Dock Company. His path led through the main shops of the yard. Spagetti immediately pulled out a stick of his trusty dynamite and poof! the shops were gone. He then proceeded on his journey. The James river was easily swum and next came the forests. Spagetti took out his axe and began chopping. When final- ly he reached the Pacific Ocean he had cut a straight path through one thousand miles of forest, had traveled through four hundred miles of buildings, had swum six hundred rivers and lakes ranging from twenty feet to sixty miles and had climbed over one hundred and twenty-seven mountains. All told, he had worn out three hun- dred pairs of shoes. When Spagetti reached the Pacific Ocean he rested a day be- fore trying to swim it. After swimming sixty days he landed in Africa. Then came jungles to cut down, more rivers to swim, lions, as s 5iQ9PY World Famous Explorer Lost !n,Jungles,,Qf Darkest Africa -W.

These things he had to do with- out stepping out of his path. Spagetti, although he did fight wild beasts, never killed any liv- ing animal or creature and only wounded those animals which he fought. He succeeded in getting half way across the African continent when one day he came upon an ant hill six feet high and two feet wide. There was nothing to do. He couldn't climb over the ant hill, he couldn't cut it down for fear of killing some ants and to go around would be out of his path. Spagetti stood there a moment longingly and then turned sadly back to- wards the United States, thus ad- mitting defeat. jaerolysine C r o n d i e r Fears Aloysius Coypean is Killed. Aloysius Alistair Cholmondeley Coypean, who graduated from this high school in 1936 and who is now a famous explorer of Central Africa, was last heard from on January 35, 1935. His co-explorer, Jaerolysine Arograne Fetergrate Crondier, who has made and re- tained' the reputation of being the world's bravest man, fears that Coypean has been eaten by a ren- goaelosyes plant. Coypean, who set sail with Crondier from Death Valley, California, last July for the African continent, has been through some harrowing exper- iences. When he and Crondier landed in Cape Town after a long sea voyage they were greeted first by a ferocious lion standing at the rail- road station. Coypean, with great presence of mind, whipped out his gun and shot. A loud explosion followed. Coypean was sued 5,000 pezozees by the African govern- ment for shooting so rare an Alaskan rubber lion. After this matter had been rightly cleared up, Coypean turned to find his com- panion, but the clouds of dust were so thick that he couldn't see objects farther away than two feet. Being unable to find Cron- dier, Coypean decided to wait at a hotel for him. After three weeks of searching, Crondier was finally found in Christendom lstill run- ning! by Norwegian police, and was immediately returned to South fContinued on page 41 2 THE WEAKEN WEAKEN Cbe Zlleaken weaken fVery Weakenj Published Weakly Official eyes and ears of the Student Body of the Newport News High School Newport News, Va.

Hugh Splitum Let This Be a Lesson to You The singular and most exciting experience of the renowned ex- plorer, Aloysius Alistair Chalmon- deley Coypean, who is lost in the deep, dark jungles of Africa, should be a lesson to the students of New- port News high school. His decision to become an ex- plorer and his subsequent isola- tion in the depths of the African jungles is certainly lesson enough for anyone. The moral to this story is never to gaze at the lions in a circus cage, because you might become attached to them.

Fighting valiantly and playing better football than they have shown this year, the Gold and Blue Typhoon eked out a 1-0 victory over the Hampton Crabbers in the annual grid battle which was held on the Newport News high school gridiron December 33. The Ty- phoon scored first on a lateral pass on the kickoff when Captain Ivers received the pass from Captain Hayes and raced across the line. A few minutes later another pass, from Captain Hudson to Captain Baker was completed for the sec- ond touchdown which gave the Ty- phoon a 0-0 lead . Here the Crabbers rallied and started a drive which carried them to the fifteen yard line where a bad pass from center halted the march. The Hamptonians could not be denied, however, and a pass placed the ball deep in Newport's territory. A combination forward and lateral pass, Krab to Jones was good' for a score. Smith place-kicked the extra point. The score stood at the end of the first quarter: Newport News, 03 Hamp- ton, 6. Newport News scored again in the second quarter when Captain Ashby intercepted a Hampton pass and ran through the whole team for a touchdown. The half ended: Newport News, 7, Hampton, 5. In the third period' the Ship- builders were driven back to the shadow of their own goal where Captain Lewis downed the ball to give Hampton two points on a safety rather than risk having a punt blocked and a possible score. In the last quarter, Captain Cater snatched a Hampton fumble in mid-air and ran about forty yards to cross the line for the final score. Newport News, stall- ing for time, kept the ball for the remainder of the game which end- ed, Newport News, 1, Hampton, 0. The lineups: N. N. H. S. Pos. Hampton Saunders ........ LE ..............

After this uncalled for delay, Coypean and Crondier sailed to Central Africa where their ex- plorations for Indian reservations were to commence.

But the minute they stepped into the open, they found themselves surrounded by Indians. They jumped back into the shelter of the woods, but to their great horror, they landed at the feet of a wild ant. Crondier ran, but Coy- pean was so terrified that he could not move.

The Student Council 'lille Student Council is divided into two parts: the executive board, composed of the officers and representatives from each class, and the General Student Council, consisting of a representative from each home room. Once a month the whole Student Council meets to discuss the prob- lems of the school. For the past two years they have been working dili- gently on evolving an honor system for the school. At present there are sixty honor classes. The Student Council hopes that in a few years the honor system will he school-wide. The officers for this year are: Lloyd Noland, President, Leroy Spigel, Vice-President: Ruth Curtis Robeson, Secretary. PAGE TN IRT Y-ONE THE BEACON The Speech Club The Speech Club was organized in the spring of 1933 by a few of the members of a Speech class under Miss Harriet Smith. The club, since then, has grown and is progressing nicely. The members give opportuni- ties for practice to speakers, debaters, and readers, and offer comments to contestants chosen for state competitions. The officers for this year are: Joe Shaheen, President, Frances Steger, Vice-President, Dorothy Johnson, Secretary, George Sands, Par- liamentariang and A. N. Branch, Sergeant-at-Arms. V Spanish Club Hable Usted Espanol? No? Well, the Senoritas and Caballeros who are members of the Spanish Club are learning to speak it at a very rapid rate. The Spanish Club was organized a few years ago under the super- vision of Mr. Carlos Urrutia, Spanish instructor. The object of the club is to create a Spanish atmosphere among the pupils, outside of the regular daily class work. The pupils have shown great enthusiasm and member- ship and achievements have been growing apace. Wilson Urrutia is Presi- dent and James Hawkins, Vice-President. V Senior Literary Club T A wide-awake organization, now in its tenth year, this group enjoys varied activities and an extensive popularity. Social meetings twice a month, teas in honor of graduating classes, Memorial Day broadcasts, historical tours, and annual banquets are among the items on the club's program. This semester's officers include Roy Carter, President, Mi1'iam Car- penter, Vice-Presidentg Henrietta Ivers, Secretary, Barbara Baker, Treas- urer, Barbara Brown, Historiang Dorothy lVIcMullen, Press Reporter.

The paper is the proud possessor of many high awards. In the years 1932, 1933, and 1934 it was awarded All- :Xmerican llonor rating by the National Scholastic Press Association. in 1933 and 193-1 it was awarded the Medalist Rating by the Columbia Scholastic l'ress Association-one of the highest awards given high school newspapers. lformerly a five column pamphlet, the paper is now seven columns wide and contains four pages. The Beacon annual is published twice each year by the graduating classes, serving as a memory book for seniors and a record for the entire student body. VVith some trepidation, some misgivings, some hopes, and certainly after a great deal of earnest thought and labor, the annual staff presents this book to its class and school. PAGE TNIITY FIVE: THE BEACON The Glee Club V Progress is the Glee Club's middle name-and progress not only in size. Miss Eleanor Sherman, director, sees to it that the girls admitted have not only singing ability but also tone quality. There are now twenty- four members. The group sings for Patrons' League meetings, spring cantatas, commencement exercises, and on various other occasions. In 1933 they attended, for the first time, the annual music conven- tion held in Richmond, Virginia, and made such a favorable impression that they went again last fall. Each Wednesday morning and Thursday afternoon the club practices its "do, re, mi's," and prepares to sally forth and add another performance to its list. V The Band V The band is an organization which has its full share of vigor and pep. At the football games the boys are resplendent in gold and blue capes and White marine caps. VVhen they march down the field, their colorful capes flying, their leader, Chancellor Bailey, strutting ahead in the traditional drum-major costume with his energetic "goose stepf' the game becomes a special occasion indeed. In this progressive organization there is plenty of hard grinding rou- tine and polishing, which accounts for its fine form, both musically and otherwise. The band has grown steadily, and now numbers forty-seven pieces. AE FEBRUARY. 1935 hrront row: Shockley, Kilpatrick, James, Woodcock, Baker, Turner, Bama, Le Pevre, Tilghman, Ma one.

The Orchestra Such progress as the orchestra has made represents not only the pro- ficiency of the group, but also the excellent training given them by their director, Miss Eleanor Sherman. The orchestra members, of which there are forty, provide music for the plays, for assemblies, and on other oc- casions. In the State Music Convention at Richmond the orchestra has been well represented. This semester it has a concert master, Bernard Siegel. A com etent, well-or fanized froup, the have been hi fhl commend- P 5 L Y B Y cd by critics and music lovers throughout the vicinity.

The Midgets built their attack around an especially good passing combination, with Claude VVard on the receiving end. V Girls' Athletic Club V Girls, do you want to be strong and healthy? Come with us. Xve camp, hike, swim, and play all sorts of games. There is not a single sport we do not indulge in: tennis, archery, basketball, cornell, track, volley ball, baseball, skating, cycling and swimming. We are indebted to Miss Frances Abbitt for our organization. Three years ago when she came to this school she started the club. Now it is one of the largest organizations in the school. Miss Abbitt has taught us many things, but above all, good sportsmanship, upon which our club is based. V The Tennis Team The tennis team was organized three years ago through the com- bined efforts of Mr. Julius Conn, athletic director, and Randolph Tucker. During the first year, the team did not have a very successful season. Nevertheless, the following year they were state champions. Last year, although many of the members of the team were lost by graduation, there was another fairly successful season. The members were Captain Billy Verell, David Blaylock, l.eonard Pepe, Bobby Spangler, Billy Brooks, and Billy Hill. F FEBRUARY. 1935 Seated: Managers Kerlin, Eichelberger, Kidd, Mlrmelstein.

PAGE FORTV-ONE THE BEACON Emily is looking spic and span And she's happy as can be, For her clothes are always cleaned By the NEWPORT NEWS LAUNDRY. Her tender flesh does not itch and burn, But is cool and clear and free, For her dresses are hygenically cleaned By the NEWPORT NEWS LAUNDRY. She toddles to Church on Sunday Morning Feeling grand with spirits high, For her dress is ZORIC cleaned By the NEWPORT NEWS LAUNDRY. Would you have your clothes caress you Like the masseur's touch, Would you have your dry-cleaning Free from odor and all such. Would you like to walk the streets Feeling proper as can be, Then have your laundry and dry-cleaning done By the NEWPORT NEWS LAUNDRY.
