STANLEY ETHEL GILDERSLEEVE Principal Dean of Girls nchor foreword . . fb 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.

It is with sincere thonks tor oll he hos done tor us, thot we, the stott ot Februory l945, dediccite this Anchor to MR. OTTO I-l. WEISS -Q' Yi-1 MR. H. OTTO WEISS wx 0 the raduatin Class of Qbruary '45 df "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, .fcwme Jud nn MRS. LOUISE HURT onorar Qdication if 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.

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.

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. Y SCIENCE CLUB To further the interests of science in NNHS the Science Club was organized last scmcstcr.

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. W 'V Vs N sr .

ARTICLE I 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. ARTICLE ll 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! ARTICLE lll 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. ' ARTICLE IV 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 8 H 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!" ARTICLE V 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 next year. 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 to mel" Fourth, Sam Allen, poet laureate of our hon- orable class, leaves his ability to Billy Stevenson. He also proclaims that "Mephiste's Musings" are his own original works and hereby warns fu- ture columnists against plagarism. Fifth, Richard McMurran leaves the Honor Council to the next chairman and wishes him the best of luck in trying to persuade the stu- dents of NNHS that "An honest man is the nobl- est work of God." Sixth, Mary Lou Shaw gives Herbert Bateman next year's Anchor and extends to him her deep- est sympathy. Seventh, to Valley Roy, Bobby Coleman leaves his title as a "great, big, beautiful hunk of man." By the way, he doesn't include Betty Harp in any of his gifts. He thinks he'll keep her. Eight, Harry Duff's cheerful smile is left to every student in NNHS to use when they face the "big three" because of some mischief. Ninth, Shirley Phillips leaves her ability to "beat out the boogie" to Jimmy Daniels. Tenth, the "Andrew Sisters," Shirley Linkous, Pat Beasley and Sylvia Cofer present their voices to Spottie Bivens, Betty Joe McWilliams ana Mary Dame Stubbs. Eleventh, Virginia Moody, "The Jitterbug," leaves her title of "best dancer" to Jean Farmer. Twelfth, The Candler twins leave their beauty to Barbara Carter. Thirteenth, Boots Cumming leaves her "high- est average" to the Mitchell twins. lGoodness knows they need it.l Fourteenth, Irvin Nachman, the most athletic boy in the senior class leaves his ability to his friend, Theodore Theodorsen. Fifteenth, Henry Hoppe leaves his height to little Bobby Manning. Sixteenth, John Sim leaves his outstanding speaking voice to the speech classes as a per- fect example so they may all make "A," ARTICLE VI With fondest memories in our hearts and know- ing that NNHS will never be quite the same without us, we now bid our able Alma Mater "Adieu" and hereby affix our signatures as a seal to this document.

September 15-Typhoon gridders round into shape for their opener against Hopewell the following Saturday. 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 fourth game. 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. tif eotball Schedule and Results September l 8+-NN Octcber 2+-NN .
