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
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
E -Jeanette Ward.
MISS JEANETTE WARD, SPONSOR
A MESSAGE TO THE SENIORS
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.

Famous Lemming W alk er

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-
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,

Let This Be a Lesson
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.

jungles is certainly lesson enough

Shipbuilders Defeat Crabbers
By Close Margin In Thriller
Newport News Wins Annual
Contest By Score
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-
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.

Coypean and Crondier sailed to

were to commence. One day while
walking' through the woods, they
happened upon a deserted Indian
reservation. This was better luck
than they had hoped for since In-

themselves surrounded by Indians.
They jumped back into the shelter

The Beacon newspaper is a weekly publication, written and edited
by the journalism students. The paper is the proud possessor of many
high awards. In the years 1932, 1933, and 1934 it was awarded All-

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

The Glee Club
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.
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

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.
