VA. .. -.,.,, ., - - E. . +-.-w 016 WWC The theme of this book is communication. The scroll of the ancient scribe, the printina press, the nevvsboy cry- ina his wares on the street, are early symbols of a rapidly chanaina field of communication. Since the days of the ancient Chinese, vvho are report- ed to have discovered the art of printina, to Gutenbera who developed it, to American inaenuity which utilized it, is but a moment, relatively speakina, in this chanae. What accomplishments lie ahead vve do not know. With the seeminaly infinite possibilities of radio only partly realized, with television, with the radio or "fac- simile" newspaper rapidly beina developed and novv in use to some extent, it is difficult even to auess as to what the future holds. No matter what form it may take in the near future, We hope that communication of nevvs and ideas and opinions will never be prohibited, that the riaht of free speech will never be taken avvay-for that way lies dic- tatorship. And last, we hope that the nevvs Cbe it published, radio broadcast, told over the back-fence, or shouted from the house top? of the records of this February l939 araduatina class be aood nevvs to our parents, our friends, and our teachers. T "ONLY ONE" There are many, many houses in the world but to each of us there is only one home. There are many, many schools in the world but to each of you there is only one school. There are many, many persons of the opposite sex in the World but one day you will find, I hope, that there is only one for you. These are fundamental loyalties of life and they arise from the fact that these agencies have properly filled fundamental needs. The school career which you are now closing' has, I trust, exhibited a fulfillment of the fundamental obligations a school has toward its members. If you are leav- ing with a sense of satisfaction in your career here, with a feeling of com- fort as you look back upon your school associations and with a feeling of confidence in what it has given you, then we have both succeeded. If there is frustration or a feeling of having missed something, and a lack of cer- tainty as to just what you are carrying away with you, then someone has failed. Go forward on this day with a determination to cultivate and en- hance that which you have received and to seek anew that which you do not now have. Herein will lie success and satisfaction in life. mme Melville Bryant. Sponsor The test of or nmn is the fight he nmkes, The grit that he daily shows, The sway he stands on his feet and fakes Fdte's niinierons bumps and blows. A coward can smile when there's naught to When nothing his progress bdrs, Ent it takes a nidn to stand np and cheer While some other fellow stars. It isn't the victory after all, Bnt the fight that at brother inrihesg The man who, driven against the wall, Still stands up erect and takes the blows Fate with his head held high, Bleeding, and bruised, and pale Is the man 'who'll win in the by and by For he isn't afraid to fdil. of Four fear ,. Y., , DEDICATION The staif of the February 1939 Annual dedicates this book to Miles l,. Tlmmipsorn, for many years instructor in printing at Newport News high school. I His help to disciples of Gutenberg or Horace Greeley is well known. Workers on the Beacon newspaper and annual are grateful for his advice and cooperation. His service to the school in its other multitudinous print- ing jobs is great. Advisers to activities needing programs, tickets, placards, well know his contribution. Indeed, it would be difficult to mention any phase of our school life in which he does not have a part. Printing has made an invaluable contribution to the world. This printer has made a valuable contribution to our school life. We value it highly. Five srr's i k Administration LAMAR R. STANLEY JOSEPH H. SAUNDERS S. D.

A very large crowd welcomed him at the boat when he arrived. Also a very fine program was pre- sented by a committee of his old friends. Those on the committee were: Elizabeth Henley, .Jeannie Davie, and Vera Townsend. The key to the city was then presented him by Mayor Roy If'rlrnzer. Mr. Union stated that he would tour the United States for the ensuing year. "Flashes of Yesterday" Meets With Success "Flashes ol' Yesterday," the stage show seen at the Jefferson Theatre, took the town by storm. It included many spectacular acts. The all-girl chorus performed with the ease and grace oi' professionals. Many members of this chorus for- merly resided in Newport News. Among them were Vivian Jones, Norma Livesay, and Virginia Hur- leigh. Miss Anne Ruth Dale, famous for her imitations of' Min- nie Mouse, failed to appear in the show. One oi' the special numbers was a fan dance on skates by Jean Christian and lieltye Mercer. pp pp1fpngRUARY 2, 1950 pp Gay Wins Honors Millicent Gay, who carried off honors at the Olympic Games held in Paris, was an expert swimmer in her high school days. "ln all my coaching experience I have never seen a more graceful swim- mer," was the statement Miss Frances Abbitt made. Miss Ab- bitt coached at Newport News high school for the past fifteen years. "Is Dancing Wrong?" Peck's Sermon Topic "Is Dancing Wrong?" was the topic of the sermon of Rev. Ed- ward Peck at the Ame1'ican church in New York City recently. In his message he brought out: "This mode of entertainment was carried out by the heathens in their tribual ceremonies, but we are now living in an elightened age when we should look to something more refined for our recreation." His choir was composed of Mar- guerite Williams, Sylvia Arch, Katherine Beaubein, Frank Mail- ander, Evelyn Morris, and Dorothy Hundley, The organist, Miss Shir- ley Mae Carter rendered several selections. It was announced during the service that a special privilege would be afforded to the congrega- tion the following VVednesday night by two returned missionaries, ltachel Divers, and Lois Candler, who will speak on the "Life and Customs oi' Anarelie Eskimosf' No. 13 Hospital Gift to City From Noted Doctor Yesterday the cornerstone was laid for the new Armory hospital, a gift to the city from Dr. 0.

Page 2 M H I 'Y YY' ' WYJPJ dqvicc to the l i oqvclorn Dear Mr. Bishop: Won't you please help a poor lit- tle maiden in distress? I have been unfaithful to my loved one. Last night I went out with another and I don't know whether or not to tell the one and only. Please tell me what to do. Frances Burnett. Answer-Be honest, be faithful, be kind. Then I'm sure your true love won't mind. Dear Mr. Bishop: I am twenty-seven years of age, average looking, but very bashful. My problem concerns a beautiful popular young girl with whom I am very deeply in love. I am afraid to ask her for a date as she will probably laugh at me. How can I overcome this fear? Frank Lassiter. Answer-Columbus took a chance and you must take a chance as long as there's a moon up above, 'cause you don't want to make history, you just want to make love. Dear Mr. Bishop: After many sleepless nights I have at last decided to put my problem in your hands-here goes. My steady who has been very faith- ful, kind, and loving has all of a sudden turned his affections else- where. I am very broken hearted. Won't you please tell me how to regain his love? Isabelle Huber. AnswerfWait and pick a night, a dark and stormy night, take him riding around in the rain. Dear Mr. Bishop: I have been reading your column for years and you have helped me THE BEACON-FUTURISTIC with many problems before so won't you please help me again? My trouble is that I think I am terribly in love with two boys, is this possible? Elizabeth Rayfield. Answer-Oh darling you can't love but one, you can't love but one and have any fun, O darling you can't love but one. Dear Mr. Bishop: My how my heart is torn. I can't live without him. I can't live with him. I can still remember how he proposed to me. He took me in his arms and swore to be true fthat dirty ratj. He said that he loved me but oh how he lied! With shattered hopes, Frances Rice. Answer - Your case is most hopeless. The only thing I can suggest is to get another man. Remember there are more cat fish in the sea. Fads ay Frills On a trip to the beach last Sun- day the new style bathing suits seem to bid fair to be a sensation. They are made of cellophane of flower or figure designs with skirt effect. The more elaborate de- signs have a black cape of the same material and the colors are so gay that they make a very in- spiring effect. Several of our citizens have voiced their opinions on this topic. Miss Margaret Carleton, famous dress designer said, "The new bathing suits are both daring and different." Miss Beverly Coleman and Jean Greer, joint owners of the "De-lov-lee Beauty Salon" stated: "The new bathing suits will fit the new type hairdressf' The famous New York model Elizabeth Hollowell, formerly of Newport News told the reporters, "I am very enthusiastic about the new bathing suit modes." Scientific Exhibition Is Now On Display An astounding exhibition of the marvels of wireless television was revealed today to our star reporter by Dr. B. Donald Aaron, Tele- vision Engineer Expert, and head of the television section of the gov- ernmental research laboratories at Washington, D. C. Dr. Aaron ex- hibited his latest development, the transmitterless television detector in the main hall of the library of congress by showing the results of the latest congressional argument. Other exhibitors from this lab- oratory are Dr. Winston Pierce, who displayed a wonderful camera that required no film. Upon the request of Margaret Hattan, our reporter, Dr. Pierce took a color snapshot of her. Results will be seen later. Proceeding down the aisle, Miss Hattan discovered Dr. Bernard Berman and Dr. David Brenner with a model of their latest death ray projection. This projection on display will kill a fiy at twenty paces.

The barber nicked his man several times. To stop the bleeding he placed a small bit of paper on the cuts. When the process of shav- ing UD was completed, the victim handed the barber a 31.00 bill, and remarked. "Keep the change, it's a privilege to be shaved by a man as versatile as you. Why you're a barber, butcher, and paper-hanger all in one!" Chauffeur: The car is at the door. Master: Yes, I hear it knocking. i iZSldVGI'llSSl'1'l9lfllS ii' iii? Congratulations Graduates!
