Published by the Graduating Class of June, 1946 NEWPORT NEWS HIGH SCHOOL Newport News, Virginia M sc w7fc (Member ( Jjf dbt!9?l) One IN MEMORIAM Dr. Joseph H. Saunders, our be- loved superintendent, died at his home on the ninth day of Febru- ary, 1946 after a lingering ill- ness. From the time he was elected superintendent, he served public education in our city and state with devotion and signal distinc- tion. He worked u n t i r i ngly to broaden the scope of education and to strengthen the teaching corps. He advocated more ade- quate remuneration for his teach- ers and required of them h igh JOSEPH H. SAUNDERS B.A., M.A., LL.D. standards of personal and educa- tional qualifications. During the period of his superintendency, a number of new schools were erect- ed including our high school which is a living monument and testimonial to his foresight and wisdom. Even in his last illness he pa- tiently and courageously gave of his time and thought. We shall always cherish his memory, for he worked valiantly and builded well. Two THE WHIRLING TYPHOON ! Our senior year in the Newport News High School has meant more to us than the other years since there is freedom from the strife and the turmoil of war.

SENIOR CLASS COMMITTEES Ten WHIRLING TYPHOONS! Eleven Left to Right: Kenneth Kea, France 1 ; Murray, Ted Ashby, Constantine Tsitsera, Billy Hilling and Ira Davis. Constantine Tsitsera was the senior ' s choice for president in both the 4 Low and 4 High classes. His brilliant mind, friendly personality, and good looks have won for him many friends. Constantine ' s name appears on the Nelms Honor Scroll five times, and his service to the school will be unforgettable in his record of serving as the chairman of the Literary Club citizenship committee which was in charge of high school bond and stamp sales during the war. Ted Ashby was elected by the seniors to fill the office of vice-president. Ted ' s congenial personality has made him a favorite with each of his classmates in high school. He has held various offices in his home room and served on the business staff of the Anchor. Billy Hilling was elected secretary of the 4 Low and 4 High classes by the seniors. Billy served as Student Council representative of his freshman and sophomore classes and was secretary of the student body for one year. He won a letter on the varsity basketball team during his senior year. Frances Murray, senior treasurer, served as vice-president of the 4 Low class and secretary of the junior class. Her keen mind will always be remembered in the school as she leaves with her name on the Nelms Honor Scroll four times. Frances served as Head Registrar in school elections for two years, was co-editor of the Anchor, and was the recipient of the D.A.R. good citizen award in 1945. Kenneth Kea, senior representative to the Student Council Executive Board, was elected to serve in both the 4 Low and 4 High terms. He has served on the dance and remembrance committees of the Student Council, and was an elec- tion official for two years. Kenneth won a letter in his first season on the track team, thereby obtaining membership in the Varsity Club. Ira Davis, class speaker of the senior class, has been active in school af- fairs since his freshman year. His out-standing work in the drama department and on the production staffs of the Cantata and the concert of ' 45 won for him election to the National Thespians. He has been a reporter for the Beacon, and joined the Literary Club in his junior year.

Twenty-Nine Editorial staff members, activities Tommy Drumwright; Mary Asher and Frances Murray, and features Betty Nachman, labor over the problem of senior lay-outs, minus two members, feature Irma Kate Popper and activities Charles Minnigerode. THE ANCHOR STAFF Striving to improve the Anchor by describing and showing more of the actual life, the June ' 46 Anchor staff began in October of 1945 to plan the annual. They have kept on despite the obstacles presented by the shortage of needed materials and by the handicap of too little time. With the hope that the student body will appreciate the changes and will find in them improve- ments, they present the June 1946 Anchor. After apprenticing themselves to the February staff, the members of the June staff were appointed by the Anchor advisor. Miss Jeanette Ward, and the February staff on the basis of their qualifications and working ability. Elected to lead the staff as co-editors were Mary Puckett Asher and Frances Murray. The alternation in the arrangement of senior pictures was one of the first achievements of these two. Business manager, Jimmy Goodwin, and his assistant, Selma Epstein, handled the revenue, which was the result of the work of the ad staff. Man- ager of this staff was Ted Ashby, who had the somewhat thankless job of obtaining the finances needed to publish the annual. His helpers in this work were Jean Blassenham. Hermine Weiner, Sue Mays, Katie Allen, June Jarrett, Frances Richardson. Gloria Winter, Shirley Powell, Charles Tynan, J. D. Seward and Marion Forrest. Not to be forgotten, but to be thanked are those seniors who. although not members of the staff, sold ads and secured patron money. Betty Nachman and Irma Kate Popper, as feature editors, were given the job of writing up the various departments. The fact that Newport News High School has so many courses from which the student may choose helps to make it one of the best in the state. These girls have a finished product of which they may be rightly proud. Activities editors usually have jurisdiction over the pictures of the numerous clubs. However, this year Tommy Drumwright and Charles Min- nigerode took charge of all pictures except those of the seniors, including Thirty tho se of a senior ' s day and all needed for the departments. Their work was painstaking and thorough. The two, who pestered the seniors about their pictures, but won in their perseverence by meeting their deadline, were photo editors, Joyce Las- siter and Helen Friedman. Also working with the whole class were the biography editors, Dollie Rogers and Victoria Vaughan, who handled the headaches of additions and corrections with unequaled patience. No annual would be complete without the catchy drawings by the art editors. The theme of this annual caused the artists, Barbara Andrews, Kitty Guthrie, and Doris Hughes to complete more drawings than usual. Sectional page drawings by Barbara Andrews are thought to be great addi- tions to the over-all effect of the annual. Photographer John Theiss assisted Mr. Weiss, faculty photographer, in taking the pictures for various sections. Jack Lawson, a graduate in Feb- uary, 1946, also acted as photographer and turned in some excellent shots. Covering the basketball games and athletic phases of the school life were sports editors, Arnette Howell and Larry Rabinowitz. Even though only a minority participate in extra-curricula sports, every student takes an in- terest in the school ' s teams and wishes to see them well represented in the annual. Perhaps the most unlauded group, but nevertheless essential and hard working are the typists. Martha Helmer, Jean Rowe, and Dorothy McClure had several times to work extra hard in order to meet deadlines because of work ' s being turned in late. Whenever thinking of the annual or work connected with it, one should remember the tireless worker, Miss Ward. This annual would never have been published but for her patient understanding and hard work in advising and correcting. The staff as a whole worked faithfully and hard to turn out an Anchor which would picture the events of every student ' s school life. They hope that everyone reading a copy of their publication will appreciate these efforts and consider all things in criticisms. Attempting to catch upon financial difficulties ore typists Martha Helmer, and Patsy Forehand, ad staff members Katie Allen, Hermine Weiner, Jean Blassenham, Jackie Lackie, business managers Jimmy Goodwin, and assistant Selma Epstein and ad manager, Ted Ashby. Caught while planning their respective sections, are biography Dollie Rogers and Victoria Vaughan, art Borbara Andrews and Doris Hughes, photo Helen Friedmon and Joyce Lassiter, sports Larry Rabinowitz and Arnette Howell, and photographer, John Theiss. Thirty-One TO THE CLASS OF 1946 OUR GREAT NATION IS ONCE AGAIN AT PEACE WITH THE WORLD. To your recent predecessors at Newport News High School and others was given the responsibility of winning the WAR and the PEACE. In order to accomplish this task, they had to learn and to put into practice the principles and methods of modern warfare. These responsibilities they accepted and carried out not only unselfishly but also most successfully. You, too, have a serious responsibility — that of maintaining this PEACE. May each one of you appreciate the price paid for PEACE and make every effort to learn and to put into effect those laws and ideals for main- taining this PEACE, so that the efforts, sufferings, and even deaths of these people will not have been in vain. Very sincerely yours, Louis G. Plummer Thirty-Two In presenting the King and Queen of the June, ' 46 Anchor, we introduce " Buddy " Bryant and Joanne Stuart. They were elected by the student body from a group nominated by the graduating class. This new feature in the life of the school was proposed by the staff of the June, ' 46 Anchor. Joanne, who is not only pretty but also popular and active in school affairs, has as one of her many activities, cheerleading.

" — Plutarch In order to depict to the reader the actual school life of the student, the usual sections containing activities and features have been combined. This one section is a discussion, along with pictorial evidence, of what con- stitutes each department and the clubs sponsored by them. Traveling Typhoon may represent any one of you as he breezes through the classes and activities of Newport News High School. Fnrty-Thrpp " STEVE " EARLY TYPHOON Dihdin " Talk of nothing but business, and dispatch that business quickly. " — From vocational training provided by the Commercial Department of the New- port News High School, students can be graduated ready for employment in the field of business management or secre- tarial practice. The business management courses pre- pare a pupil for opening a small busi- ness of his own or for keeping the fin- ancial records of a firm. This course may also be the prerequisite to advanced train- ing in college, which will lead to occupa- tions in any field of management. Sub- jects offered in the business manage- ment courses are distribution, credit pa- pers, economics, store m a n a g e ment, bookkeeping, accounting, type writing, and commercial law. Courses in secretarial practice are set up primarily to prepare individuals for typing or stenographic work. These are also preparatory courses for students who plan to take advanced commercial stud- ies. However, they may be for personal use to aid in recording notes. The sub- jects taught are typewriting, shorthand, bookkeeping, commercial law, account- ing, economics, and secretarial practice. Only theory is taught in the first year ' s study of shorthand while the second year ' s work consists of taking dictation at the rates of eighty, one hundred, and one hundred and twenty words per minute. Certificates are given to those students who for five minutes are able to take sixty, eighty, or one hundred words per minutes, transcribing the notes as mail- able letters. The principal objective in the first term typewriting is the development of the keyboard with emphasis on control. In the three following terms, emphasis is placed on problem typing and speed. By the time a student has finished the last term, he has learned to set up work and transcribe from shorthand notes. Mini- mum speed required in the last term is forty words per minute while a speed of sixty or more is considered superior. Awards in typing are given to those stu- dents who in fifteen minutes type thirty, forty-five and sixty words a minute with a limit of five errors. There is an accuracy certificate, as its name implies, for those completing fifteen minutes of perfect typing. Students have excellent training for employment. They, having been taught to cut stencils and use the mimeograph machine, make all copies of outlines, reading lists, tests, and forms for the school and library. The most competent students become secretaries for teachers. In the last four years every graduate desiring employment has secured a posi- tion. Forty-Four " JOHNNY " BARRYMORE TYPHOON " The play ' s the thing. " — Shakespeare " Everybody on stage. " This magic cry means one of the two major productions of the drama department is under way. The casts — of which there are two, are chosen from the student body at large in preliminary, semi-final, and final try- outs. To develop the student in three partic- ulars, poise, voice, and body, is one of the purposes of the drama course. Poise includes the inward feeling of ease and the outward expression of that feeling by doing easily and well the correct thing at the correct time. The voice qualities that should be developed are projection, and quality. Principles of body control include relaxation, control, and coordin- ation. The development of a hobby in connection with theatrical production work and an increased appreciation of drama are the remaining purposes of this elective course. The department is well known in the community for its readiness to cooperate with local associations. A large percent- age of the membership of the Little Theater has been a product of the de- partment. It has worked with the Ameri- can Association of University Women to provide suitable prod uctions for the younger citizens of the community. It is the drama department that aids in the production of concerts and special as- semblies, most notable of which are the productions of the music department, the Christmas assembly, and the senior events. The organization of National Thes- pians has a chapter in the school. Mem- bership in the organization is attained on the basis of points secured by public appearance both in school plays and con- certs and in community affairs. These ap- pearances alone are not the sole method of securing points. Work on the various staffs responsible for these productions will give a student a large number of the required points. Forty-Five WASHINGTON IRVING TYPHOON " A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver. " — Solomon It is the duty of every American to himself to make the correct expression of his own language easy and natural. Careful study through research and ex- perience on the part of teachers of the education of the student in grammar usages, language skills, the mechanical aspects of speaking and writing on suc- cessive levels of maturity will aid each boy and girl to increase language power from semester to semester. Since many students end their formal education with grad uation from high school, it is of the utmost importance that high school English courses be ex- plicit, thorough, and progressive. With this in mind our own English department has been recently reorganized to give more efficient service to the students. In place of a department head there is a chairman elected from among the teachers of the department. Serving with this chairman is a group of committees working on all problems incidental to reorganization. This new program which has been inaugurated is to be in effect for at least three or four years. In the new Eighth Grade a different program in reading has been inaugurat- ed. The English and speech departments have combined their efforts to improve students ' oral and silent reading ability. Special attention is given to the pronun- ciation and spelling of words. Foundations for elective courses that are to be offered in English Seven through Ten are the English classes one through six. The elective courses being considered are world literature, drama, English r e- lated to shop work, and creative writ- ing. These a d d i t ional classes would greatly enlarge the present curriculum which provides now a choice in the senior year of only college or non-college pre- paratory work. Forty-Six " CHRIS " COLUMBUS TYPHOON " There never was a good war or a bad peace. " — Frank What happened in 1492? This and more intelligent questions are capably answered in the study of history. No history is as romantic and interest- ing as that of our own country, the United States. From the landing of the Pilgrims and the Jamestown colonists to the morn- ing newspaper, there is a wealth of use- ful and necessary information which can- not be neglected by any true American. Ffistory is made every day. In the wars we have fought to defend our democracy lives and fortunes have been lost. This wealth of knowledge is assimilated by those students who take United States History classes. Our Modern History courses offer the student an opportunity to understand better the peoples, governments, and in- ternational affairs today by giving him a knowledge of the social development of the race. One fifth of the time spent in each course is alloted to the discussion of current events and modern problems and to debate on timely topics. There are two civics courses in the curriculum. Freshman Civics is primarily a class devoted to orientation, personality de- velopment, and vocational guidance. Sen- ior Civics attempts to give the student a better understanding of the duties he is to perform as a citizen. Actual court room trials are attended, and imaginary ones are carried on in the classroom. For those who expect to enter college the Ancient and Mediaeval courses are of inestimable value. Through the knowl- edge of various civilizations of the world, leading up to and contributing to ours, one is furnished with a general fund of in- formation which characterizes the cul- tured man. In the daily life of the school of which he is a citizen, the student is encouraged to perform to the fullest extent in the duties which characterizes a good school citizen. Forty-Seven AUNT JEMIMA TYPHOON " A stitch in time saves nine. " — Unknown The home economics course in Newport News high school provides valuable training for the future to the girls who enroll in its various classes. The course serves in the duo-foundational role as a basis for vocational work and home manage- ment. The department endeavors to help each one of its students be socially acceptable to groups of both the same and the opposite sex. This is done by recommending high standards of personal grooming, by aiding in the development of un- selfish and friendly personalities, and by teaching social courtesies. The home-management c o u r se aims to give the students an under- standing of good health and rules for its maintenance and teaches them to accept responsibilities which will necessarily have to be accepted in family groups. The ability to work more in- dependently, to appreciate the values of money and to understand what makes a fair sharing of the income, and to contribute to the wel- fare of families and individuals in the com- munity is taught in this course also. A study to develop affection for younger children is included in the plan of the department. Home economics courses are majorly elective, but girls of the eighth grade are given a preliminary course in homemaking. Basic studies for vocational jobs such as designing clothes or managing a cafe- teria can be found in the classes of clothing and foods. In these classes the girls are required to make certain pieces of clothes and learn to prepare specified dishes. Calorie and vitamin contents of various foods are learned also. The three clubs sponsored by the de- partment, the 8 Low Homemaking Club, the 8 High Homemaking Club, and the Future Homemakers of America, have as their aim the establishment of a closer relationship between the school and the home. These clubs have regular business and social meetings and sponsor outside acti- vities such as receptions and banquets. The actions of the classes and clubs of the department combine to aid the students of the high school in becoming better-fitted to handle the problems of home life. Forty-Eight HENRY FORD TYPHOON " Remember that time is money. " — Franklin One of the great needs of the masses of our people today is a marketable skill, useful for self-sufficiency. Newport News High School is making a contribution towards this end through its practical arts courses. The two types of shop work offer- ed in the high school are industrial arts, which aim to give pupils an insight into a variety of occupations, and vocational education, which prepares a boy for en- trance into a specific field of work. These provide rich exploratory and occupational guidance opportunities for boys and spe- cialized training in a few fields for those desiring specific preparation for a trade. In industrial arts classes the pupils are rotated through activities embracing the more common types of work associated with the electrical graphic arts, the met- al and wcod working industries. Through the constriction of well designed articles the student becomes familiar with the more common tool and machine pro- ceses and the technical information as- sociated w : th them, the materials of in- dustry and the methods of production, the related information which is of im- portance to every consumer of industrial production, and the occupational in- formation essential for entrance into the field of work. By serving as superin- tendents, foremen, record clerks, tool room clerks and maintenance engineers, the pupils acquire a responsible attitude, confidence in themselves, and coopera- tion with fellow workers. Specific trade preparation in the high school is limited to machine shop and auto mechanics. In these courses stress is placed on the development of skills that will definitely prepare the boy for entrance into the occupation of his choice. A considerable amount of techni- cal information is included in each course with special emphasis on trade terms, science, mathematics, and the drawing associated with the trade. Upon the successful completion of the course the student is provided with a good foundation for the trade. Forty-Nine HORACE GREELEY TYPHOON " To think rightly, to think instantly, to think incessantly, to think intensely, to seize opportuni- ties when others let them go by — that is the secret of success in journalism.

Journalism in our high school is a laboratory course, for the students have the opportunity of working on the school paper. Here they gain experience while learning the fundamentals of newspaper make-up. Though the main purpose of the two semesters ' course is to train the student in journalistic writing, the subject proves valuable in other ways. He is taught to read the newspaper more intelligently, and is more efficiently equipped for a career in this field. Only juniors and seniors are eligible for this course. Those applying must have maintained at least an average of " C " in English. Since the weekly school paper is printed in the high school print shop the stu- dents are afforded a greater opportun- ity to observe all of the steps in the publication of a paper. Besides writing material for the Beacon some of the better students do copy for the local newspapers. The Beacon staff sponsored an assem- bly this year for which they obtained as speaker, Robert St. John, world renown journalist. They plan to sponsor at least one assembly a year bringing before the student body famous r e p r e sentative journalists. Fifty “JULIE " CAESAR AND " DONNIE " QUIXOTE TYPHOON T=f A Only two languages are taught in the high schol now. One classical language, Latin and one romance language, Span- ish. " Quod enim munus rei publical ad- ferre mauis, meliusve possumus quam si docemus atque erudimus iuventutem? " — Cicero. " For what greater or better service can we render our country than we do, if we teach and instruct its youth? " All those who have studied Latin know of its value in the study of English, for more than fifty per cent of the English language is composed of words of Latin origin. Likewise Latin is a basis for the modern romance languages. Two years of Latin is required for the student to get any credit on the subject. Some wish to continue in the study and two years of advanced Latin is available for this group. Ability to read and trans- late the Latin into English, as well as skill in writing English in Latin is stressed. Studies are made of Roman civilization, and an appreciation of the debt owed to the Romans by the modern world is given the student. In advanced classes the great literary masterpieces of Cicero and Virgil are translated and studied in detail. " Querer es poder " " Where there ' s a will there is a way " . One step taken to promote cooperation between the United States and countries of South America, due to the Good Neigh- bor Policy introduced in 1945 by Frank- lin D. Roosevelt, was that of advancing the study of the Spanish language. The purposes of the two year Spanish course offered in high school are to create in the student the faculty of reading and under- standing Spanish and to enable them to use oral Spanish in certain sit- uations. Knowledge of the people who speak Span sh is gained from studies of their customs. Sponsored by the language de- partment are the Latin club and Spanish club. At the regular monthly meeting additional information is gained, as well as recreation from the social gatherings. Fifty-One SINCLAIR LEWIS TYPHOON " My library was dukedom large enough. " — Shakespeare 57 Quietness prevails in our library, per- fect setting for the students who wish to read and study. This quiet order isn ' t an accident but a planned accomplishment of our able librarians and their student assistants who attain the coveted posi- tion after giving evidence of their in- terest in books and people. Average scholarship and a good moral character are also necessary. Never a dull moment for these library assistants who are in charge of the circu- lation of books, — that is checking them in and out, the processing of new books, assisting in the mending of those books which from constant use have become worn, aiding in the library publicity, dis- play, and exhibits, and the checking of permits. These girls are eligible for lib- rary letters when they have worked for a specified length of time which varies according to their excellence in the per- formance of work over and above the re- quirements. A library pin is presented to only those who have surpassed the above requirements for letters. The Library Club is composed of these girls who have been rated for their library work. Our bookshelves, filled with books total- ing 15,700, are replenished each year with 400 more with funds supplied by the school board. All fields are represented among the titles. In one year 35,000 books are circulat- ed. New titles are selected from sugges- tions offered by teachers and students; but, of course, the final decision is left to the librarian who through her many years of training, decides which are the most suitable. The Evaluation Committee of the Southern Association of Secondary Schools found our library to be one of our greatest assets. Others, too, have recognized this fact; for the State De- partment of Libraries in Richmond sent a letter of commendation to our librarian who is in charge of the largest high school library in the state not only as to actual size but also in the number of books at the students ' disposal. Among the many courtesies extended by our library are the faculty reading club, the " Popular Science " and " Read- er ' s Digest " magazines at reduced rates, and a faculty reading room where any teachers of the local system may read or study and hold meetings of small groups. Fifty-Two PYTHAGOREAN TYPHOON " Mathematics, the queen of the sciences. " — Causse To be capable of keeping up with the fast pace of science and industry, it is necessary for all persons to have detailed information in mathematics since it is the foundation of all knowledge. At the Newport News High School the five mathematics courses prove valuable not only in the material of the subject it- self but also in training the student to be accurate, precise, neat, clear in the perception of thought, and strict in the interpretation of the written word. With the establishment of the new eighth grade, a five year mathematics course was incor- porated. All eight grades are en- rolled in general mathematics in which they study practical arith- metic and basic fundamentals of algebra and geometry. At the end of the freshman year, the student has completed the required mathematics, hav- A course in plane geometry, offered in the third year, consists of the study of all plane figures including circles, rectangles, and regular polygons. Valuable work is also done in proportion. The senior has the opportunity of taking solid geometry and trigonometry. Even though both are col- lege preparatory courses, they will prove of much value in any type of work. Solid geometry is the study of solid s including the plane, pyramid, and regular polyhedrons. Spherical geometry is also covered. Trig- onometry constitutes the basic functions, logarithms, and the practical application of the knowledge gained. ing taken general mathematics and one year of algebra. The majority of the stu- dents, however, continue in the elective courses, especially in the second year algebra. During the two years the student becomes skillful in solving algebraic equations, in the use of radicals, in graph work, and in the basic fundamentals of trigonometry. Fifty-Three " WALLIE " DAMROUSCH TYPHOON " Medicine for the soul " — Siculus " And the band played on. " So it does as the Newport News High School band performs jointly with the school orches- tra, mixed chorus, and glee clubs in the annual spring concert. This production given annually on the first Friday eve- ning of each May, pres ents to the stu- dent body and the community the musi- cal talent of our school. As individual groups the musical organizations have their own outlines of practice and per- formance. Drills on tones and exercises in breath control are practiced in band classes while the orchestra class does drill work in string positions. On its busy schedule perhaps the band ' s appearance at foot- ball games and " pep " assemblies are most important to the students for the cheerful and spirited atmosphere created by the stirring music. The orchestra pro- vides music during the intermissions of the school plays, and its strains are re- membered by each and every graduate of our school for the orchestra performs at all commencement exercises. Both the band and orchestra are featured on the Patrons League Association programs throughout the year. A year of music is required in the cur- riculum of the school and it is the pur- pose of this year to promote group sing- ing and music appreciation. Students study operas and folk songs and learn the correct methods of vocal develop- ment. The chorus classes are formed by juniors and seniors who are both tal- ented and interested in choral singing. The mixed chorus and the glee clubs sing on school programs, at various civic meetings and at Patrons Legue meet- ings. The mixed chorus and the band en- tered the district contest in the spring and several soloists from each group participated. In February, seven outstand- ing members of the band attended the all-state band clinic where three of the students won distinction by being placed at the head of their respective sections. " Sherman ' s Wildcats, " our high school dance band, plays for school dances, community programs, and activities held at the " Y.

Fifty-Four " CHARLIE " ATLAS TYPHOON " Young fellows will be young fellows. " — Rickenatoff Not that the Physical Education teach- ers expect to develop either " super " men or women, but they do try to develop each student mentally, physically and socially. War has made the country more cons- cious of the necessity of physical educa- tion for all within their ability to parti- cipate. The important place won during the war by physical education in the high school curriculum should be main- tained in years to come. The boys ' gym classes endeavor to develop not only a strong body but also a strong character. The weight, height, age, and class of each boys is checked, and from the facts are determined the ability and extent of participation of each. A series of three tests is given during the semester to determine the improvement. These tests include the following: indoor — pullups, pushups, sit- ups, and rope climbing; and outdoor — standing and running broad jumps, high jumps, low hurdle races, passing and kicking of footballs, and the various dis- tances of dashes. Those boys with physical defects that can be corrected are given special atten- tion. Effort and accomplishment are the two main factors in grading all boys. The girls ' gym classes and intramural program include a variety of activities that contribute to their aim. These activi- ties are as follows: sports — speedball, soccer, basketball, volleyball, tennis; dancing — tap, folk, and modern; tum- bling, stunts, and gymnastics. Calisthen- ics are usually given first during each class period as preparation for participa- tion in sports. Achievement tests which include game skills are given to determine agility and muscular activity. To give each girl an understanding of the struc- ture and functions of the body, health instruction is given for one marking per- iod each semester. Fifty-Five " AL " EINSTEIN TYPHOON " No one knows what he can do till he tries. " — -Syrus TTA In the midst of this new postwar world, when opportunities in scientific progress beckon from every side, it is necessary for every citizen and every future citizen to have an average knowledge of the dif- ferent branches of science in order that they might better understand the new devices being used in industries and homes. The four courses in the science department of our school have been in- tensified in response to this need in the students ' future lives. The general science course is presented to students as an introduction to the field, and in this class the student re- ceives a general idea of the various branches which will be offered to him as electives in his following years of high school. What matter is, how it is classified, and what properties it has is perhaps the basic study in the freshman science course. Biology in our high school is divided into two courses — botany and zoology. Botany deals with the origin and life his- tory of plants while zoology deals with a discussion of animals, their structure, classification, habits, and distribution. The teachers of our chemistry courses endeavor to help the students perform laboratory experiments and to carry out thought projects based on the application of the scientific principles learned in class. Six weeks of the chemistry class is spent in studying and learning the form- ulas for general scientific processes. The physics course in Newport News high school consists of detail studies of the basic principles, magnetism, and electricity. Along with the factual ma- terial, there are practical laboratory ex- periments. Physics classes are given such knowledge as is possible in the advances of radar and atomic research. The science department spon- sors two clubs — the Science Club and the Chemistry Club. These are capably run by stu- dents particularly interested in these fields and c o n t r i bute much to the member ' s knowl- edge from the interesting and educational programs which are presented. Four students in Newport News high school were among the first place winners in the Virginia Academy of Science statewide science talent search conducted in January. Fifty-Six RIP ROARING TYPHOONS ! Fifty-Snven SEASON: 1946 When the referee ' s whistle sounded December 8, 1945 to open the cage seas- on, an experienced yet still awkward group, under Co-captains Bobby Stortz and Eddie Cooper, stood ready to further the cause of the Cold and Blue. Their opponents, South Norfolk, won after the game ran into an overtime period, but back the Typhoon came the following week to defeat an older, veteran group from Cheatham Annex. Such results were to be repeated many times in the days to come, for the for- tunes of Coach Julius Conn ' s charges wavered constantly, and it was not until late in the season that they fulfilled the promise of their name — " Typhoon. " The gangling unsure opposition of Oceana high school proved easy pickings on December 19, but against the finished performance of the Duke University ' B ' squad the men from Newport could find no defense. In their final preliminary game before entering conference com- petition, they took the measure of a Holy Trinity five. Behind Bobby Stortz ' s sure fire scor- ing attack the hardwood warriors fought Maury to a desperate winning finish, with the cagemen sorely tried for every min- ute. Once again college material, this time in the form of William and Mary ' B ' team, overwhelmed them; and two days later the Connmen dropped a conference tilt with Wilson, despite a stellar per- formance on the part of Eddie Cooper, season high point man. Jaunting into Maryland late in Janu- ary, the cagers faced a Junior Varsity representation from the Naval Academy in Annapolis. That particular day was, however, the Navy ' s, and they took home with them the short end of the tally sheet. Fifty-Eight Though blond Buddy Bryant appeared ' in the grove ' from a scoring standpoint, future district champs Granby thoroughly downed Gold and Blue aspirations for that title by defeating them decisively in the squad ' s first encounter in the local gym. Then two more collegiate outfits, the University of North Carolina and Duke University " B " groups, found the Typhoon on the easy side of the ledger when the team journeyed into Tar Heel land Feb- ruary first and second. To the cagers credit is the fact that, though with the scales securely tilted against them be- cause of the quite apparent extra experi- ence of the college quints, they stayed in the fight every minute. The William and Mary " B " game Feb- ruary fifth can be marked as the turn- ing point of the year. Gaining what they had lacked in previous efforts, the bas- keteers tightened up, settled down and took three straight contests, two from combines which had defeated them in earlier meetings. Maury fell on the eighth, and the next Friday eve the Typhooners invaded Wil- son ' s home grounds to snatch victory from what the Prexies regarded as an easy defeat. By February 21 Granby clinched the Eastern District crown, their defeating the Gold and Blue was a foregone conclu- sion. The tilt, played in Norfolk, marked finis to the 1946 campaign.

From its ranks will undoubtedly come the top notch performers of future hardwood wars. Bobby Stortz Outstanding Cager and Gridder In Stortz ' s right arm is the Cordon football trophy while in his left arm rests the Agathon club ' s outstanding basketball player award. The Julian Gordon Football Trophy Awarded annually by Mr. Julian Cordon of this city, the Julian Cordon football trophy for the team ' s most valuable player went to Bobby Stortz, for his participation in the 1 945 season. The Agathon Club Award The spring of 1946 saw the establishment by the Agathon Club, men ' s civic organization, of the custom of awarding a trophy to the most outstanding member of the Newport News high school basketball squad. Presented by club president, John Cox, at the time of the awarding of basketball mono- grams, the first trophy went to Bobby Stortz. TRACK — INDOOR SEASON Southern Indoor I n v i t a tion Meet, Scholastic Division — Though teams from Newport News had oft tried to win the Southern Scholastic title, this year marked the first time a Typhoon representation had come in ' the money. ' Held February 23 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina under the auspices of N. N. C., this contest and its big brother, the open Sixty division, attracted a fine group of con- tenders, with a field of forty teams drawn from the entire seaboard. Tally sheet showed the Cold and Blue with 17 points amassed from the follow- ing places: Mike Neofitou, first, and Ken- neth Kea, second, in the 1,000 yard run; Captain Bobby Haskins, first, and Jimmy Daniels, second, 70 yard high hurdles; Billy Foster, fourth, high jump. State Indoor High and Prep School Meet — Two weeks later, on March 8, the thin clads won their second consecutive in- door champinship for the state, totaling 32 points with three firsts, seconds and thirds, and two fourths. Scene was the University of Virginia ' s Memorial Gymnasium in Charlottesville. Participating were over 200 contestants from eight state high and preparatory schools. During the course of the afternoon ' s events, Mike Neofitou set a new meet record for the half mile run. Previous mark has been 2: 1 5, which the dark-hair- ed speedster whittled down to 2:11.5. That naturally gave him top billing in the event ' s results. CAPTAIN BOB HASKINS Kenneth Kea won high tally honors of the day by taking first in the mile, and a good second in the 880. Running mate Clifton Penny came second in the mile. In the hurdle races Captain Bobby Has- kins won a second in the lows, and a third in the 50 highs. Jimmy Daniels added five markers when he led the field in the lows with a 6.5. Getting a third in both 50 and Left to right: First Row, Diamondstein, Foster, F. Rosenfeld, Wood, Coley, D.

THE OUTDOOR SEASON Coaches Julie Conn and Lou Plummer had a field shy but run heavy team with which to regain for Newport News the oft-held state championship. Led by Cap- tain Bobby Haskins, stellar hurdler, the team had as its backbone a large group of veterans, lettermen and non-N men. Early prospects showed a group of boys both willing and able. The majority of the Cold and Blue ' s top-notch men were those who had already showed up well in the two indoor contests and who went on capably when the scene of operations shifted outdoors. Key men are as follows: Milers, Ken Kea, Clifton Penny and Billy Wood; Mike Neofitou, Dick Roane and Ted Marks in the 880; dashmen Frank and Albert Ros- enfeld, Donald Shields and Bobby Stortz; James Coley and Billy Foster in the quar- ter; Captain Haskins, Jimmy Daniels, Bernie Shields and Dale Parsons — hurdle specialists; jumpers and vaulters, Bobby Scott, Jerry Rosenberg, Jerry Garrison and Dick Forrest; and last but far from the least, such field event gentlemen as Henry Stern, Dewey Schanz, Jimmy Hahn, Eddie Cooper, Robert Walker, Lou Taylor, Buddy Bryant and Carlton Hol- land. Not all of them won — but they always tried. Result — State Champions for ' 46. Granby Tidewater Maury Eastern Navy Plebes.
