nchor foreword . .
Looking over these great United States, we may be
ever thankful that the horrors of Nazi occupied countries
have never been imposed upon us. The people of Amer-
ica enjoy freedoms of which few other people can boast.
America at war is a hard working nation with victory as
her goal and a peaceful post war world in her heart.
When this war-weary old world once again breathes a
peaceful sigh, let us hope that the enslaved people of
Europe shall enjoy the four freedoms of America.
ln other countries, as in our own there will then be
no danger that on Sunday mornings a group of storm
troopers may break up the worship services. They shall
worship as they see fit. Nor will there be want for food
and clothing. They shall be well fed, and sheltered. Ra-
dios and newspapers shall be running strongly, and shall
not be forced to publish only what the dictators want
published. Gur gift to them will be these:
Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, Freedom from
Fear, Freedom from Want.
Throughout the yeors, the Anchor hos
come out twice onnuolly with credit being
given the editor ond stott ond the toculty ocl-
visor it it is good, ond the responsibility loid ot
their feet, it it is bod. But good or bod, there

octivity pictures, ond being genercilly useful
when possible. l-le hos stoyed in the bock-
ground up to now, ond this term we intend to
give credit where credit is due.
It is with sincere thonks tor oll he hos done

dediccite this Anchor to

MR. H. OTTO WEISS
0 the raduatin Class of
"For what is your life?" . James 4:l4
You can soar to great heights living for Cod and humanity, or you can
work for selfish ends and shrivel up into insignificance. Don't follow the
crowd until you find out where the crowd is going. Strive that you may be
the channel through which the Divine Spirit may flow.
Dream great dreams-then make those dreams come true. Let each
day of your life count for something good, something worthwhile. As Eliz-
abeth Browning said, "Light tomorrow with today." And another great phil-
osopher and thinker said, "Keep your dreams intrepid few, the world has
bitter need of you."
Never has the world needed new courage, high ideals more than it
does today. The more you give in service to your fellow man and to Cod,
the more richly you will be rewarded. You must dare to do right always! lt
will take courage and faith, and although sometimes the way may be rough
and hard, the joy of accomplishment makes the effort worthwhile.
"Today is the loom on which we weave the variegated threads of yes-
terday into a glorious tomorrow."
I shall miss you-all of us in Newport News High School shall miss
you because you have meant much to us.
Goodbye, dear seniors!
Always your friend,
MRS. LOUISE HURT
Across the oceons, on other shores fighting for this
Iond we oll love so deorly ore Americon boys of oll roces,
creeds, ond colors. We ore thinking now porticulorly of
those few who would hove grocluoted with us in our closs.
And os we think of them, we con't help o feeling of sod-
ness thot comes over us. We would like to poy them o
tribute os best we con, but there is no tribute quite high
enough to show how they hove poid.
From the bottom of our heorts, we, the stoff, wish to
give them this Anchor in honorory cledicotion, thot it
moy in some smoll woy show them how we feel. God
bless them oll, ond speed the doy when they mov come

BEACON WEEKLY STAFF
Rushing around, gathering news, and meeting deadlines, the ever faithful Beacon Weekly staff strives to act as
the eyes and ears of the school and to provide students with a laugh now and then. The Co-Editors-in-Chief, Beulah
Pair and Janet Davis who led the paper to its first class rating last semester were at it again this year with enthu-
siastic aim for an even better paper.
QUILL AND SCROLL
To become a member of the Quill and Scroll a student must do outstanding work on the Beacon Weekly. A member
of the International Quill and Scroll, the local branch encourages higher standards of journalistic writing. Pictured
above are Jack Ball, Herbert Bateman, Gene Markham, Stella Biconvaris, Shirley Linkous, Walter Stern, and Ruth
Fuller. Absent members: Beulah Pair and Janet Davis.
Acting as an advisory group to the Student Council, the Fxecutive Board is composed of the officers of the student
body, a representative from each class, and the Editor-in-Chief of the Beacon. These students, elected on the basis
of intelligence and ability, under the capable leadership of Miss Ethel Gildersleeve, dean of girls, suggested projects
and make plans for the council to carry out.
I 11" R A 'QR-
Led by Theodore Theodorsen, presidentg Kent Miller, vice-president: Billy Hilling, secretary, and Irvin Nachman,
treasurer, the Student Council has sponsored three dances this semester for the school, continued work on the
Service Honor Roll, proposed changes for the NNHS Constitution, and carried out other projects to make NNHS
a better school. Its membership is composed of the Executive Board and one representative from each home room
in the school. Miss Ethel Gildersleeve is sponsor of the Council.
HONOR COU L
Helping the student body live .up to its motto "An honest man's. ew Ile of God," is the Honor Council. Pri-
Another unique organization around school is the National Thespians. As you should have already gathered, this is a
dramatic organization. Membership is acquired through a credit system and by vote of old members. Very few stu-
dents know much about this club. lt is named after Thespius the first Greek actor to speak words on the stage. The
members receive seals for their diplomas. Betty Harp is president and Miss Dorothy M. Crane is sponsor.
BOYS' GLEE CLUB It
Although there is no resemblance in looks, the Boys' Glee Club sounds like .Sin ra multiplied. Miss Mildred Bane
director, teaches the boys to use their vocal chords in harmony. Popular so sf s well as classics are included in
their types of music. ft
Mixed Chorus means many things: rehearsals at 8:15 one morning o week, singing an the bus to and from a program,
tryouts for new members, the carols and in Christmas Assembly. But more than these things which will live long in
the boys' and girls' memories, they will always remember loyalty and devotion to an ideal, cooperation in an endless
effort to create beautiful music, and always an attempt to serve the school. Miss Mildred Bane is diretcor.
To further the interests of science in NNHS the Science Club was organized last scmcstcr. Individual projects arc
taken up by members in botany, geology, astronomy and biology, and presented to the club. Officers are Jay Sawyer
president, Thomas Vincent, vice-president, Nancy Reese,secretaryp and George Watson, treasurer. Miss Susie V.
Floyd is sponsor.
JUNIOR RED CROSS
Always on the job to help unfortunate people is the Junior Red Cross. This year, the club has devoted its time in
doing everything possible for boys in the armed forces. Barbara Mae Mugler presided at the club meetings, assisted
hy the secretary, Agnes Handges. Miss Juliet C. Coleman is sponsor.
Student librarians hclp keep one of Virginia's finest high school librarics a smooth running business-like organization
to help the student body find information and recreation. Miss Elizabeth Saunders and Miss Margaret Garland are the
head librarians. The girls help each period during the day.
"Oh boy! What a headache! Guess the infirmary can fix me up." With a sigh, the student heads for the infirmary
and when he arrives, one of the girls pictured below is always on hand for remedies. They treat such things as head-
aches, toothaches, cuts, scratches, bruises, fainting spells, indigestion and countless other ailments. After three
consecutive semesters in the infirmary, a girl is entitled to a service letter.

Pearl Harbor Assembly.
NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
"Gollyl Are you in it? I wish I were!" Every term one hears such a remark as this when the new members are
elected to the National Honor Society. The most outstanding students in all fields of activities are voted on by the
faculty and the members are chosen that way. Membership in the organization is based on four things: scholarship,
citizenship, leadership and service. Jack Daniels is president and Miss Eulah Massey is sponsor.
RETAIL SELLING CLUB

a specific job in training in the retail selling field. Everyone in the picture is employed in some store and works cvery

ary club has no meetings except for awarding letters and formulating rules regarding wearing them. The members

ho ast Will and ostamont
We, the graduating class of February, 1945,
having successfully survived four years in New-
port News High School, do hereby proclaim this
document to be our last will and testament, so
help us Hannah.
To you, our faithful, patient, and enduring
teachers, we first leave you completely sane. llsn't
it enough that we didn't drive you "nuts?"l
Second, we leave you a brand new bunch of
freshmen. Take them gently by the hand inspir-
ing them with the fact that if Eddie Dobson can
do it, so can they.
Teach them the little things that mean so
much to every freshman such as "DON'T WRITE
ON THE DESKS AND DON'T RUN DOWN THE
HALLS." lt ain't healthy.
To the office force we leave a few less blue
forms, tardy slips, and sick blanks to bother with.
At first we planned to plant a time-bomb in
the office so that we could leave with a big bang
but, on second thought, we decided to leave our
ole Alma Mater just as we found it. At least,
until we get our diplomas!
To our Anchor adviser, Miss Frances Taylor,
we leave a headache, a backache, and a few
broken blood vessels. In general, we leave Miss
Taylor a nervous wreck.
Second, we wish her the best of luck in find-
ing a better staff next year. That is, if she can
find one better than we. '
We, the "mighty" seniors, realizing that chew-
ing gum is very hard to obtain, do hereby leave
all of ours to members of the student body. You
can find it under any of the desks around school.
To the 4-lows we warn, "lf you want to grad-
uate, for goodness sakes, DON'T TAKE ENGLISH
To the Juniors we acknowledge the fact that
they have only one more year to struggle through.
To the Sophomores we advise the plan of work-
ing hard now, for, who knows, everyone of you
might be an honor student. We wish we were.
To the Freshmen we only smile and soy, "Don't
you wish you were we!"
Various members of the Senior' class wish to
leave certain items to the school and its pupils.
First, Beulah Pair and Janet Davis leave the
BEACON to Stella Bicouvaris and Walter Stern
with sincere wishes that it will be All-American
Also, they leave the Service Honor Roll to
whoever sees fit to work, and we do mean WORK,
on such a worthy cause,
Second, Dot Coppersmith leaves her position
as head-cheerleader to whoever deserves the honor.
Third, Ruth Fuller leaves Eddie Cooper with
a sign saying, "Keep your hands off! He belongs
Fourth, Sam Allen, poet laureate of our hon-

September 'I-The recruits of the l944 Ty-
phoon team turn out nearly 80 strong with plenty
of old hands to build a team around.
September 15-Typhoon gridders round into
shape for their opener against Hopewell the
September 184Typhoon versus the Hopewell
Blue Devils. Entering their initial fray of the sea-
son, the highly favored were out-fought by a
determined Hopewell ll. The best run of the
day came when Calvin Bridge skittered around
left end for 80 yards and the only Typhoon score,
Result, NN 6, Hopewell l2.
October 2+Newport News plays host to the
Danville Cardinalas. This contest, scheduled for
September 30, was postponed due to rain until
the following Monday. The disputed Typhoon
again met more than they could handle as the
Red-birds rang up 0 20 to 6 victory.
October 6+After a short week of practice, the
Gold and Blue finally bounded into a winning
column by defeating a favored Staunton Military
Academy. The Typhoon offense, led by the de-
termined will and skill of its two captains, made
a I2 to 6 win over S.M.A.
October 'I3-Although stimulated by their late
victory, the boys still seemed to lack something
essential to a winning team, as the Maury
Commodores crushed the local eleven l8-0. lt
was Maury's first conference victory and her
October 21-Following strenuous workouts the
whole week, the Typhoon travelled to Portsmouth
to try their luck against Wilson, a powerful team
with hopes of winning the state championship.
Against what seemed to be hopeless odds, the
Gold and Blue eleven completely outsmarted, out-
of a eam!
played and outscored the seemingly top team.
On the opening kickoff Calvin Bridge received
the ball and scampered some 85 yards for a
touchdown. The second touchdown came in the
third period on a beautiful aerial from Hopkins
to Kersey, Result: NN l4, Wilson 7.
October 28-Petersburg, always a strong op-
ponent, travelled here to take on a rejuvenated
Typhoon team. The ensuing game proved to be
a tough one, and although the Typhoon had
better running attacks, Petersburg had better luck
and scored a 6-0.
November 4--Rebounding from their previous
encounter, the Gold and Blue soundly defeated a
strong Alexandria team by 27-6. The Typhoon
mainstays in Lin llish, Bobby Stortz, and Calvin
Bridge coordinated beautifully to run up the score,
ln the final quarter, Rappold knifed into the Alex-
andria backfield to receive a lateral and dash 30
yards to pay dirt.
November 'l'I-ln travelling to Norfolk, the
Typhoon found its strongest opponent of the sea-
son in Granby High's Blue Comets. Although de-
feated, the Gold and Blue fought all the way, giv-
ing Granby a real battle. Result: NN O, Granby l4.
November 18-ln their second engagement of
the season with the Typhoon, Maury High, con-
fident of a second victory, was outplayed by the
Gold and Blue boys. The game ended in a I4-i4
deadlock. Both Typhoon scores came from passes
from Hopkins to Kersey and Haskins.
November 30-Entering their traditional Tur-
key-day rivalry, a slight underdog, the Typhoon
scored a well-earned 6-0 victory over the Wilson
Presidents on the Gold and Blue field. This con-
test represented the final game of the season
for both teams.
