While you were with us, it was your opportunity and privilege to learn the meaning of and receive the beneiits from all that is embodied in and exemplified by the creed of Americanism. It is the fervent hope and prayer of all of us who bid you farewell, that always you shall realize the American way is the only way, that unceasingly you shall cherish it, for- ever guarding it as your priceless heritage, and that at all times you shall strive to protect it from those who continually seek to destroy it. -fqmhew Wmpkq V I, . W -1- DEDIEATIUN ESTHER CUTLER Her willingness to assume responsibility in school, church, club and young peoples' activities always has been admired. Even in her high school days here at Newport News, she was an honor student and active member of many organizations. Now as a teacher of drama and social studies in this same high school, she has continued her interest. The Girl Reserves and drama department especially have a full appreciation of her valuable contributions. Poise, calmness, and a sense of humor havealvvays been her outstanding assets. All these, plus a sense of proportion and cooperation, have earned her the reputation of a most versatile personality. To this fine person and teacher, Miss Esther Cutler, the June 1940 Beacon Annual staff dedicates this publication, an annual devoted thought- fully and reverently to "Americanism." --fame f94f0 W1 4 ' A Q - v 4 ,I f. 4 4 if 1 'ii l 3 1 'I a 11 1 4 ' ' mg..- .. ...4- A -, Administrcrtionff:c:f l . l l'VIcmIners of fhe AIIIIIl'lIiSfI'fl.f1'0ll are lefi' to riylzf: Joseph H.

Typically American is the administration of our local school system. Working in close collaboration with the school board, faculty, and our stu- dent governing body, the administration has developed an efficient system for serving the individual student for his greatest individual good. Dr. Joseph H. Saunders acts as superintendent of schoolsg Lamar R. Stanley, as principal, is in charge of the high school in generalg Ethel M. Gildersleeve, dean of girls, acts as adviser in helping the girls with their problemsg and assistant principal S. D. Green has the task of advising the boys. Represented by this group and backed by our student council, We have here a small democratic unit governed by the same principles and practices used by our American government and found so necessary to an indepen- dent and free thinking people. 6 i Q Lf. - .
