Two Foreword Stretching from the bright sunny beaches of the Atlantic Ocean to the soft rolling Blue Ridge Mountains which blend into a peaceful, boundless sky, from the sparkling Potomac on the north to the humid Dismal Swamp to the south, extends a state which holds an honored position in this union of states of ours- a state rich in the traditions of a time long dead, yet as modern as almost any in this country-the Commonwealth of Virginia. The Old Dominion endures as the birthplace of English Civilization in the western hemisphere, battleground of the Revolutionary and Civil wars, scene of the first battle of ironclad ships, home of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, of eight presidents of the United States-home of thousands of gallant men who have fought and are fighting to keep it as it has always been to them, a symbol of America. Over the 40,000 odd square miles of this state, where two and two- thirds millions of people make their homes, are found some of the best tobac- co, apple and cotton growing regions of the whole world. These fine agricul- tural areas, combined with the industrial plants which have marked the growth in our state in the past few decades, add to its historical heritage to make the Old Dominion a truly great part of these United States. In view of the great part which she has played in the development of our country, and her leadership in our way of life, the staff of the Anchor of June, I944 has selected as its theme, "The State of Virginia", We salute the Old Dominion, Three Dedication Une of the most outstgnding cmd best trctin- ed sections of Newport News high school is its musicgl depgrtment, which consistently wins high crwgrds gnd very crbly upholds the line ngme ot the school. Working chiefly with the bond gnd orches- trg, Miss Elegnor Shermctn exerts gregt ettort to- wgrd the betterment ot the school musicgl orggnizgtions. For her long hours ot work gnd good influence on mgny students, gnd tor the excellent musicgl trgining she gives them, we grgtefully dedicgte to her the Anchor of lune, l944. I' MISS ELEANOR SHERMAN Five Sponsors lvlessage "The old order changeth yielding place to new, And God fulfils himself in many ways." IDYLLS OF THE KING Alfred Tennyson My dear Friends, This is not only your GRADUATION but also your CGMMENCEMENT -graduation from high school and commencement of life's work. Well may you stop to consider this dual aspect as you say your farewell. You will have to decide for yourselves whether you will be the masters or the slaves of life. Fear only fear! Heed not the very pleasant call of vanity or flattery. Have confidence in yourselves, believe in your God and your fellowmen. Be loyal to your school, your country, and your ideals, be honest-"For a lie faces God, and shrinks from man." High school is but a preparation for life's work, it is in reality a mina- ture of the adult world-of society. You have learned that procrastination is "the thief of time", today, catch and kill that thief. You who are to be the leaders and rulers of tomorrow are prepared because you have already learned much the hard way, by experience. You have chosen your own leaders in so many school activities and have learned how to work together in a democracy. And now you must work together, fight, and win this hor- rible war that was started by adults! Believe so very deeply in something or somebody-maybe your work or a friend-that, when the many tempests of life strike you, you will be able to withstand the blows. When many will say to you, "You cannot", you will be ready to say, "l can and I will!" Remember those famous words from Tennyson: "To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yieId." Little do you realize the great value of these last four years. This high school means more to you than mere walls. Memories of these days-of your many friends and classmates-will linger forever and the older you grow the dearer they will become. You, GRADUATES of the CLASS of JUNE I944, believe me when l say that I feel very deeply honored at having been chosen your sponsor.

N. I-l. S. During our four years at Newport News High School, we of the graduating class of June, 1944, witnessed a world change so profound that many of us have not been able to grasp its magnitude. ' The scope of this change has been such that a lifetime of human events has been crowded into the brief span of four years, yet those four years, in which we have faced numerous and varied new adventures, have sped by with an uncomprehensible rapidity. As a group of frightened freshmen in September of 1940, few of us dreamed that when our graduation time came we would be ready to enter the armed forces of the Uni- ted States, but now we are prepared for that necessity. We are ready after watching many of our classmates literally marching off to war. Our freshman year as students of Newport News High was spent much as the fresh- men year of numerous classes long gone-studying and looking to the upperclassmen. The five classes, the 45-minute activity period and the two three-quarters of an hour lunch periods distinguished that first year from the time-rationed days of later semesters. When the 1941 year started, little was changed, with the faculty and student body re- maining about the same until-DECEMBER 7. On that sunny Sunday afternoon when the radios of America informed us that the Japanese attack upon Pearl Harbor had flung us headlong into a war, the school began to change. Some boys wanted to enlist, but we of the present graduating class were too young, and had to wait to fight. Students did not, however, fully realize that the nation was at war until rationing was begun in the Spring of 1942, with many of the students and teachers being drafted to help in the program. When a few of the older boys began to leave for the armed forces, the war was brought even closer to each of us. The fall of 1942 saw the present graduating glass go into the last half of its high school career with a feeling of importance, mingled with a certain longing for friends who had graduated. The first half of our junior year went along more or less as usual, until February. Then, the new six-period school day started, and the activities period was re- moved from the program. The school-wide physical education program was instigated at that time, with all of the students of the school participating. Lunch periods were shortened, and another added. The general aspect of the school changed. So went the rest of our Junior Year. Last September, we returned from our last summer vacation for our senior year, an- xious to lead the school, but a bit apprehensive about what lay in store for us now that we were "mighty seniors." We came back from jobs in the local shipyard, the Hampton Roads Port of Embarkation, the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway, and numerous other nearby businesses to resume our studies and complete what has been termed our "four year vacation." Our senior year was filled with study and hard work, combined with football games, dances, holidays and other valued ways of passing the time, and it seemed to pass at an impossible rate of speed, until the last event of all-GRADUATION. We followed three excellent athletic teams throughout their seasons, watching glori- our victories and somewhat less happy defeats. We cut a few classes and fought our way through lessons, the only thing which seemed drawn out. We greeted our friends in the halls as they came to spend their leaves from the service with us, every day seemed like "Alumni Day" with a large number of former students present. We worried about our grades in English or physics or math, and sometimes wished that we might have another year in school. We hurried to chorus rehearsal or play practice so as to be on time and help carry on the traditions of putting on good programs which our school has built up over a period of years. We eagerly perused the "Beaconlite" to find if we were mentioned, and then went on to read the rest of Friday's Beacon. We came to school early to the Student Council meeting or to sell War Stamps, and stayed late with an athletic team or to help carry on the activities of some club. We did these and a hundred other things, enjoying them all, but sometimes not ad- mitting it. We spent four of the best years of our lives at Newport News High School, a place which we will always pleasantly remember as the scene of our high school life.

ROTUNDA, THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA Forty-Nine Sports FOOTBALL Between September of 1940 when the present graduating class entered this school, and June 1944 when it leaves, Newport News High School became the most feared power in Virginia scholastic athletics. Back in 1940, the Newport News football team under Coach Mel "Stumpy" Bryant, who was assisted by John Pully, Gude Wilkinson and Mike Byrne, was a big, powerful squad. lt was led by such standouts as Ben Cleary, Bill Heath, Buddy Levin, Fred Shonz, Paul Kelly, lrvis Holmes and Earl Gray. These boys turned in a good record against equally good opposition. The scoreless tie with Hampton that year was not the result of any powerful Crabber team, but rather the inability of the Typhoon to push the ball over from the 10 yard stripe, where it stayed most of the game. The next season, Coach Harry Harmon took over, and Eugene "Red" Willis came to assist him. The varsity that year made no exceptional record, but the Junior Varsity team was outstanding. In 1942, the Gold and Blue showed signs of coming out of the kinks, and played several excellent games. The season was marked by the 14-13 win over Maury, the first in some eight years. The bays lost to Hampton, 32-O in the last game between the two schools. When 1943 rolled around, the Typhoon was ready for action, and action was just what the fans saw. The team, led by Captain Buddy Lex, polished off everybody in sight, and would have tied for the state championship but for a 14-12 loss to Maury in the first league encounter. The decision was reversed later in the year with NNHS winning, 6-O in a return game. The only other blemish in the NNHS record was a 19-19 tie with Petersburg. BASKETBALL The 1940-'41 basketball season was an interesting one, although Maury won the Eastern District championship. With a team of Buddy Levin, "Bones" Carpenter, "Duck" Pittman, Steve Sokol and Willie Leigh, the Typhoon put up an excellent fight, but lost both games to Maury. The next year, Charlie Sokol lead his mates iWray Sherman, Si Speaks, Grayson William, Bob Gatling and Bob Spicer? to a state championship. The boys went through the campaign with but two defeats, and defeated the great John Marshall team under Coach "Phess" Woodson, 31-29, to take the crown. Again in 1943, Sokol, Spicer, Buddy Lex, John Henley and Elmo Stephenson brought the title to Newport News, this time taking a larger decision from Thomas Jefferson of Rich- mond. During that campaign, a loss to Maury was the only black mark on the Newport News record. When the 1944 year came, a very strong NNHS team took the court and went through its shedule unbeaten until the last game when it fell before Thomas Jefferson in Richmond. The lanky Jeffs seemed like giants beside the short NNHS players. This team of Captain Bob Spicer, Lex, Stephenson, Harry Hilling and Woodie Holland was one of the finest ever to represent Newport News High School. TRACK Probably the best sport at Newport News High school, from the record book point of view, is track. For the past five seasons, Typhoon track squads have won every state champion- ship, and have taken most of the Eastern District and Tidewater titles. ln 1941, Fred Tucker led a team through the season to a title with very little difficulty. On that team were standouts like Paul Kelly, Jim Warren, Ray Milnick and Johnnie Fulcher. Again in 1942, this time under the leadership of Warren, the Gold and Blue copped another state crown. Assisting were Fulcher, Clarence Salyer, Joe Lawson, Harry Stinson and others. The 1943 team, which had no opportunity to battle for the state title because that was put in mothballs for the season, took the Eastern district meet as well as a tie in the Tide- water meet and wins in all dual meets. Salyer, Lester Brock, Captain Harry Stinson, Bob Bartles and others earned many points for the 1943 squad. This year's team, the 1944 Typhoon, also went merrily along, taking both of its dual meets, and giving fine showings in all other competition. NNHS did not enter the State meet, but defeated Maury, the State Champions, three times. OTHERS Also worthy of mention are the tennis and golf teams of 1941. The Golf team that year won everything in sight, while the Tennis team had a good record also. On the Tennis team were Bob Spicer, Zeke Anderson, Bert Nachman and others, while George Peyton paced the golfers. He was one of the outstanding players in all Virginia competition that season. Fifty UN" Men of June, IQLLLL Eleven boys who earned their athletic letters during their stays at NNHS graduate in June, I944. Their bids to fame for outstanding work in football, basketball or track are as follows: BUDDY LEX-Buddy Lex was the most feared figure on the Virginia high school grid- iron in 1943. He earned letters at quarterback in f43 and '44, and in his last season was listed on the honorary all-Southern, all-State, all-Tidewater and all-Foreman field teams. In basketball, he was a crack shot, and won "Ns" in '43 and '44. Twice he was named to the all-State team, and was co-captain of that group in '44. IRA HOGGE-Hogge played fine basketball in '43 and '44, and won monograms both times. As a sprinter in '44, he was one of the best men an the track team that displayed a fine record. WOODIE HOLLAND-In '43, his first season out, Woodie played such fine football that he was listed as an end on the all-State team. He also played basketball in '43 and '44, and won two letters at guard in that sport. HARRY HILLING--Played center on the football team and guard on the basketball five. Harry showed he was a fine competitor in both sports, and won two letters in his senior year. He was a hard worker and an asset to the teams. GEORGE HARDY-George was a very diligent member of the high-flying '43 Typhoon football team, and he was seldom out of the game. His speed and determination made him a really outstanding football player. JIM STAFFORDQ-Stafford played very well at guard in football, and his play was marked by a profound love for the game. His rugged style of playing was the keynote of the team's offense. DONALD BIGGINS-Participating in the high jump and later in the broad jump, Donald won his "N" in his junior year. He was a good influence on all of the boys on the team. BILL McMAHON-Running the mile, Bill worked very hard, and won his letter as a Junior also. His work on the team did much for the morale of the boys. HARRY BOYD-As a center on the basketball team, Harry did much to help the team win in '44. He also played tackle on the grid tecim. STANLEY LIVESAY-Stanley managed the football team, and was a hard worker. He earned a grid letter and ran the 440 and 880 for the track team. BILL GREER-Greer played at guard on the football team in the '43 season, and there won an "N". He was also manager of the '43 track team and the '44 basketball team.

"I can easily wreck in a day or two What builders have taken a year to do." And I thought to myself as I went away, Which of these roles have I tried to play?
