I-ler name implies her ideals 5 We are justly proud ot the Statue ot Liberty. ln View ot the conflict in toreian countries, and the liberties denied European peoples, we, the statt members, have chosen as the theme ot our yearbook, "patriotism and treedomf' W e February l94l araduates ot the New- port News hiah school teel proud that now we may participate more tully in the various pro- arams attorded the American people by their democratic aovernment. Graduates look tor- Ward to becomina active American citizens. After araduation, we shall realize better that we are a small but important part oi the areat- est aovernrnent on earth. lt is ours "to hold hiah" the torch ot demo- cracy that still shines briahtly in a World ot dark chaos. Statue oi Liberty, we return your salute! Tl The Beoicon February l91ll SPDIlSDil'S IllESi3ilBE M. J. BYRNE To the Class of February, 1941: In the past few months many new and revolutionary changes have come into being in the world. Since this Beacon has as its theme "patrio- tism", it is only fitting that we should consider the role of our own patrio- tism as it is affected by these changes. You who are about to be graduated will have excellent opportunity in the next few months to change from high school students to responsible citizens. You will take your place as workers in a democratic society that is rapidly preparing itself for self-preservation. My advice to you is to do all Within your power, and that is more than you think, to do all you can as patriotic citizens to realize the fulfillment of this defense program, and thus preserve our American way of living. M. J. Byrne. Four The Beacon February, 1941 UJE DEDIBHIF Q y WILLIAM B. KIRK He came to Newport News High School from the State Teachers' College at West Chester, Pennsylvania. For the past two years he has been adviser to both the Beacon Weekly and the Beacon Annuals. This excellent adviser has furthered journalistic work in our high school. He is not only the adviser of the school paper and the annual books, but also the teacher of journalism in the school. It is through him that the members of the present annual staff as well as many other students have learned the real importance of originality and respon- sibility. The staff of the February, 1941 Beacon Annual takes great pleasure in dedicating this book to William B. Kirk, faculty adviser of the Beacon. Annual Staff.

Twenty-Eight The Beacon February, l94l And Now for a FARRY Story Once upon a time there was a little girl named GOLDEN-locks. Her hair was long and KERLIN. As she was strolling through the FORREST one bright and CLEARY day the ROBBINS and the Bob-O-LINKS were chirping merrily. Suddenly something CROSS-ed her pathg she stumbled and hurt her SHINN and SCULL. And was she SHOCKLEY! She picked herself up and BECAN to go on her Way happi-LEIGH. She PASS-ed by Red Riding Hood's home, but she had gone out with the MILLER, and BAKER, the MAYER, and the TAYLOR. They had gone to see The BISHOP Misbehaves, at the WELLS theatre. ELLIS too bad I have to go alone. The THOMAS passing on and the skies were getting GRAYg so she ran. Too late, she reached her grandmothers be-COSBY the FOX had eaten her. As she was lowered into HARGRAVE, GOLDEN- locks uttered the prayer: "Here lies Grandma .
