Putting up a fine defensive and offensive during the first half of its tussles, only to falter in the second half seems to explain the predicament of the 1946-47 edition of the Typhoon hardwooders with nine losses and eight wins to their credit. Lending a helping hand were the only two returned lettermen of the Connmen's forces, "Dangerous" Dan Presson, flashy forward, and Lou Taylor, whose preci- sion set shots proved comforting to the locals' cause on more than one occasion. Moving up from last year's Junior varsity were Pete Markos, who excelled in back board recoveries, Tommy Jobe, who because of faulty vision was kept on the sidelines in some of the Typhoon encounters, Robert Panyotis and Harold Jones, who have three more basketball seasons in which to prime them- selves, and Dorsey Pleasants, who did his part toward the locals' cause. When the final gun sounded to end the season, versatile Captain Elmo Stephenson had racked up 236 markers and copped the honor of being second highest scorer in the state, a position of the All-Eastern and All- State squads, and the Agathon trophy presented to the outstanding player on the cage squad. Taking the lid off the basketball season, the Ty- phoon lived up to its name and blew over the class "B" high school of Oceana 51 to 13. In other pre-conference games the locals held out until the overtime period when the Papooses of William and Mary walked off the floor with a 39 to 34 victory, the Farmers of Morrison went back to Warwick County on a 41 to 12 one way ticket, the Norviewmen first bowed to a 52 to 33 score and later to a 64 to 37 board. Conference season began when the Typhoon took on the highly touted Commodores of Maury, and lost to a 33 to 26 count. The same story was repeated with a good first half and a slow last half. Breaking all prece- dents the Mauryites journeyed over to the local gym- Dec. 13 ....... ......... N . Dec. 17 ....... ......... N . Dec. 19 ....... ......... N . Jan. 7 ....... ..N.

Gold And Blue Netters . . . nasium a few weeks later to deliver the first licking that they had dealt in ten years on the local court. After a desperate try to make up for the difference in height, the locals again were turned back by the Wil- liam and Mary "B." Leading the rally was Stephenson, who counted for eighteen points in the 39 to 38 score. Their arch rivals, the Granby Comets, dealt the locals a terrific onslaught by such standouts as Chuck Stobbs and Barney Gill. The Connmen were outployed, to the tune of 4l to 32. Fortifying themselves with a little more precaution and experience for the return fray the boys in gold and blue again were knocked back on their heels in the second stanza, after trailing by two points in the initial opening. A tired and weary group returned to this side of the bay with the short end of a 48 to 36 score. The win column again held the name of the Ty- phoon when the newly rated class "A" school of Hope- well provided the locals with their first conference vic- tory and when the Typhoon employed a tight defense to defeat the Wilson Presidents, 29 to 2l. Stephenson led his team to victory with l5 markers. On their previous Portsmouth encounter the Connmen were edged out by ci 3l to 30 count. Taking to the road, the locals met the Duke frosh, and exhibited their best basketball manners to give the highly favored boys from Duke a real tussle. Led by Lou Taylor with I2 markers, the Connmen played one of their best games of the season, but dropped the tilt 29 to 27. While journeying along, the hardwooders en- countered the Navy plebes at Annapolis and were met by a deluge of points which totaled 52 to 3l. The Benedictine Saints from Richmond gave the locals a hard earned victory from a stubborn squad which finally succumbed in time for the Typhoon to walk off the court with a 33 to 3l noseout.

PACING HIMELF out along the grueling mile is veteran performer Billy Wood who has captured many a paying place in Typhoon encounters. DETERMINED to heave the shot put a respectable dis- tance, Jimmy Hahn star weightman for the Typhoon cindermen, practices his form. RUNNERS Billy Foster and Billy McLaughlin whose stal- wart performances in the grueling 440 have been note- worthy, put forth with a last minute effort. STRETCHING THEIR legs over the low hurdles are the hurdling Dick Avery and Bernie Shields who have con- tinued to cross the finish line together. Sonny Cowling is in third place. TOP TRACKSTERS carrying the colors for the harriers this season were Dick Avery and Clifton Penny, co-cap- tains who carried on the tradition of the gold and blue by leading their team to the state championship for the eleventh time.

Joining the class of "also rans" for the first time in two years, the NNHS harriers had to be content with a third spot in the Southern Invitations lndoor games at Chapel Hill March l with eight marks. Blonde Jerry Garrison cleared the high jump bar at 5 feet lOM1 inches. ln the conference seascn opener the Ty- phoon had little trouble in downing Wilson thinclads of Portsmouth 86 3X5 to 26 2,f5. The Typhoon turned back the Granby Blue Comets 6OV2 to 47M in the second dual meet of the season. Dick Avery was high point man for the locals with i4 points. Racking up 35M points to Granby's 34 the locals won the Tidewater track meet in Wil- liamsburg. The Typhoon's victory was clinched when the relay team came through and took 5 points to beat Granby by lk points.

Teddy Marks captured a first in the 880 and Jerry Garrison won the high jump. Also capturing blue ribbons for the Ty- phoon were Moss Beecroft in the pole vault, Dick Avery in the high hurdles, Jimmy Hahn in the discus and Bernie Shields for the low hurdles. The Conn and Plummermen captured for the seventh consecutive year the Eastern Dis- trict track meet at Norfolk's Foreman Field. Looking good against college competition, the Typhoon thinclads suffered the first and only defeat of the season, having a 6 to 59 verdict handed them by the Naval Academy 6 of Annapolis, Maryland. Terminating the i947 track season the gold and blue Typhoon carried away the state championship at the State Meet in Charlot- tesville on May i6 and l7. The Typhoon nosed out John Marshall by a score of 23 2X3 to 20. Top flight performers for the Gold and Blue were Jerry Garrison, Morris Beecroft and Dick Avery.

Through an understanding of current affairs, an "up to the minute" background for the feature was afforded. The set- ting for many scenes and the writing ot the dialogue have had a direct bearing on this section, however, unlike history in any aspect, "The Best Years Of Our Lives" will never be a repeat performance. Under the leadership of well known historians, the youthful staffs have been trained well in modern, ancient, United States, and medieval history. It is with great pride that we pin this "s'ar of merit" on their door. "HERE IT IS" . . . Workers turn to the globe for information in checking historical data. "CAN YOU PROVE lT?" . .

"The play's the thing" say students of the drama de- partment. In class, student starlets learn the fundamentals of pronounciation and stage poise, student staffs are taught how to handle make-up, props, and costumes.

Peering into 3l4 and 308, we find the draft- ing department hard at work planning the stage set-up. Without photographers you could not see this great production. You may find them shooting a scene or in the dark room, or hunt- ing for flash bulbs. Leathercraft, too, plays its part, for the wal- lets, belts, and other leather materials made in class are sported by the stars. Printing classes help with the details of the stage-set by providing tickets, posters, pro- grams, and other publicity material. In auto mechanics, student grease monkeys overhaul the autos which are needed in or- der to carry along the plot of the story. The machine shop turns out parts for ma- chines in order to keep those on the set in re- pair and in good running order. General metal shop classes make floor and table lamps, mail boxes, and other articles for the staging. General electricity classes handle the light- ing for this grand show, and learn fundamen- tals of radio work in additicn.

The members ot that department also take on the task of supplying information on au- thentic Spanish and Latin customs, art, and environment.

In such I cases, it is the director who spots the difficulty and puts skill to work to remedy it. , I Of all the executives of the film, it is the director V who has what is perhaps the most direct and force- ,. f. - ful effect upon the players and staffs. "The Best Q , X W Years of Our Lives" would be incomplete without the three capable directors-Miss Cildersleeve, Mr. Keesee, and Mr. Stanley. 7l 1..T We Proudly Declicate This Film . This film is dedicated to one who has played a vital part in making our high school career the best years of our livese-Mr. Herman Levy. Not only as head of the mathematics department and instructor of chemistry but also in the role of a personal friend, Mr. Levy is well recog- nized by his quick humor and ever-ready aid. Always on hand with a cheerful greeting or a witty remark, this director has given many students a happier outlook on life. Although it is a small way to show our appreciation, the staff takes this opportunity to thank him for the time, advice, and competent instruction he has given us. 72 And Its Sponsor, We Salute . ziddmv ,105 Dear Class of '47: There are pages of good advice and solemn warnings I could and prob- ably should extend to you upon your graduation.

The scene is laid tor the mo- ment in the train depot, where several stalwart veterans are setting toot at last on familiar ground. As they step down from the coach which brought them to their destination, they no doubt recall their school days before entering the serv- ice and wonder what it will be like to be behind a desk again. Little time is wasted by the ex-C.l.'s in returning to the scene of-well, to their Alma Mater, "List the subjects de- sired" is the first order they have received in civilian lite. Their name on the dotted line is testimony that they are eager to gain knowledge and catch up with their contempo- raries. ' '... and did'ja see how they've tixed up the place since we've been gone?"
