-W IN THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE NEWPORT NEWS HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING, NEWPORT NEWS, VIRGINIA 1Uii fyfeasi 9 A n 9 2 4 This year I am twenty-five years old. I don ' t mean to sound swell-headed but I ' m proud of myself. In twenty-five years I can boast of many improvements: two new wings for my gymnasium and my home economics and music departments, a stadium for my sports events, and an annex for my machine shops. I have equipped hundreds for a satisfying life and I ' m noted all over the state for my achievements. Yes, I ' m proud of myself. What ' s wrong? You look puzzled. What ' s that you ask? Who am I? Why, I ' m NEWPORT NEWS HIGH SCHOOL. Oh, don ' t be sur- prised; I have more in store for you. Because this is my Silver Anniversary, I thought you would like to know something about me; so turn the page and I ' ll begin . . 2 tf-ive TjeaSiA, Old 3 luA, 9 l tlte Waif, 9 Jloaked THIS THE WAY my faculty looked in my early days. Some of the faces are familiar. My principal, the late Dr. Fred M. Alexander, is fifth in row one; Mrs. Mae Marshall Ed- wards is sixth in row one; Miss Ethel M. Gil- dersleeve is fourth in row two; Mrs. Lalie Webb is second in row three; Miss Eline Krisch is third in row six; Mr. Otto Weiss is last in row six. MY GIRLS were real sportsters even way back then. The first in row two is one of my pres- ent teachers, Miss Amanda Gray. TIMES HAVE CHANGED, haven ' t they? This is my stadium! See the football players carry- ing the yard sticks? 4 UJcu}, feaeJz 9 i 1924 EVEN IN 1924 my student leaders governed me through a council. IT LOOKS SMALL but my band played on till it became a 90-piece outfit with smart gold and blue uniforms. HERE ARE THE CHARACTERS in an early play of mine. Some of you may recognize Mr. Edward Travis, local sports commentator, sec- ond from the left in the second row. WHAT ' S MISSING? Can you find the sta- dium? the armory? the wings? 5 Site Me Qn Lu For twenty-five years I have been kept alive not only by the generations of youth who have spent their allotted times within my walls but by the con- tinuing faculty of devoted teachers. Among this faculty, twenty-five years ago, was a teacher of mathematics who is still with me today as Dean of Girls. By her devotion to her chosen career, by her understanding and sym- pathy and by her exceptional ability, she has won the respect, admiration, and deep affection of all. I honor myself more than I compliment her when I dedicate this story of my first twenty-five years to — Miss Ethel M. Gildersleeve 6 Game 9niide and See What Coes on Behind My Classroom Doors ....

Besides learning about the homes, Latin students also study the early history of Rome, her govern- ment and political leaders, her heroes and wars, and poetry and prose written by great writers of that time, such as Virgil and Cicero. LATIN AMERICAN DANCES and costumes continue to be the style for Spanish students even after a quarter of a century. Here Rita Bromberg and Elaine Diamonstein are demon- strating the " Mexican Hat Dance " (Jarabe Tapatio), the national dance of Mexico. With " Stronger Ties Between the Americas " as their motto, most of the Spanish students join the International Student Society. " MAY I INTRODUCE my father. " Learning the correct way to make introductions is one of the many lessons the eighth grade English students study. They also begin their gram- mar and composition. This year emphasis was placed on creative writing and a class spe- cifically for this was started in the Spring. Also, there was a school-wide drive for better grammar and composition. " TO CO OR not to go. That is the question. " Paraphrasing that famous line of Hamlet ' s soliloquy, these English students are debating whether they should see Hamlet again or not. Given special study in class, many English students saw both the movie " Hamlet " and the Barter Theater production; in class they saw the movies. " Julius Caesar " - and " A Tale of Two Cities. " A change from 1924! 10 OncA aki+uj, My Jllh vdAy " WHAT CAN I DO after graduation? " asks one of these vocational civics students. Study of the requirements and qualifications of dif- ferent jobs as well as field trips to see people at work, helps my students get a chance to see what vocation they want to follow. DISCUSSING LEGAL POINTS of law with Judge Herbert Smith are four government stu- dents. These students, with the rest of the government class, heard a murder trial this year. In class they drew up constitutions, held trials and studied state government. Also of- fered are modern, medieval and U. S. history. POSTERS WHICH CHANCE with every sea- son brighten the library and make it a more pleasant place in which to work or read. In order to create an interest in books among the students, Book Week is held annually with quizzes, displays and contests. THIS NINTH GRADE speech class is only one of many which come to my library during the day. With the largest book collection and reading room of any high school in the State, my library has 16,000 books, adds about 500 volumes each year, and takes 45 magazines and five newspapers regularly. McJzUuj, Mailt Pnxicilcxd LOOK, in 1938 there were more ac- cidents than in 1939 ' remarks an eighth grade math student. This class is busy studying the different kinds of graphs. In between circles and line graphs, studies include banking and installment buying. THIS PLANE GEOMETRY class is learn- ing to use a slide rule. Although this is not a regular lesson in the study of geometry, students were interested and asked to learn. In their study of congru- ent triangles and other figures, students get a foundation for advanced mathe- matics. HOW TALL IS the flag pole? These stu- dents of trigonometry are going to find out by use of a transit. Besides survey- ing, these students, in the most advanced math class, study plane sailing, middle latitude sailing, dead reckoning, and as- tronomical problems. 12 PtejXGAituj, tf-an, flohi " DEAR SIR, " dictates Mr. William Shu- mate to a future secretary who is taking it down in short hand. All my students who want further experience receive it by working as secretaries for the mem- bers of the faculty. Many receive jobs through the commercial department. " CLICKETY CLACK! " Noise from these typewriters means that this typing one class is working hard. Here they are tak- ing a five minute speed test at the rate of twenty-five words per minute. As they advance they will be required to gain a speed of forty-five words per minute. SPRING CONCERT programs are the hard work of the advanced typing class that studies how to use a mimeo- graph machine. Also connected with the Commercial Department are the bookkeeping classes which learn to balance a set of books with ease. 13 Aleut IlieosUeA, x " KNIFE, SCISSORS! " It sounds and looks like an important operation, but it is only a Biology I class dissecting a crayfish. In their study of animals, students learn about characteristics of many animals from the minute to the larger, more complex ones. In connection with this study, a wild life exhibit was given by the Mammalogy Club in the Fall. Not to be outdone, the Biology II classes take the flower apart to see what makes it tick. INTENT ON the dis- covery of what all liv- ing things are made of, these general science students investigate an onion cell beneath the microscope. Probably the busiest of any of the classes this year, as far as field trips go, they viewed the stars through a microscope, studied plants and rocks. CHEMISTRY STUDENT Ralph Wicke, is busy with an experiment on hydro- gen, one of many experiments con- ducted in class. After class study, the students toured the gas plant to see what man has done with the earth ' s natural resources. Also the class dis- covered many interesting odors such as hydrogen sulphide during the year ' s work. Just as busy were the physics classes which worked on the principles of heat, light, sound, and electricity. 14 QettirUf 9 t Shape, " TOUCH ONE, TWO, three, four! " Calisthenics broaden those manly shoulders and keep my boys fit for any sport in which they take part. They run the track, practice football and baseball, and study hygiene. During class time, the boys ' interest is aroused in sports and after school they par- ticipate on intramural softball, foot- ball, and basketball teams. This work- out prepares them for positions on the varsity and junior varsity. " SHIFT YOUR gears, step on the gas and you ' re off, " explains Mr. J. C. Range, in- structor. A brand new course offered this year is drivers education which gives the future driver instruction in the rules and regulations of driving and actual behind-the-wheel train- ing. " SWING YOUR STICK! Make that goal! " Cries from teammates urge this hockey player on. Fall sports for the girls, soccer, speedball, and fieldball are also on schedule for the gym classes. When the weather becomes cold, the fair damsels turn to basket- ball, tumbling, and dancing. In the Spring they run outside again to play softball, volleyball and participate in track events. 15 CorttirtMuiCf GooJzittCf, TWO VERY BUSY GIRLS, Joyce Knox and Mable Reese, are laying and cutting a pat- tern. In their clothing class they learn the easiest and best way to make their pretty clothes. Another duty of the class is the al- teration of chorus robes. The class made and showed the latest fashions to me and mice- to-be in a Spring style show. LEARNING ONE of the first steps to a man ' s heart this advanced foods class prepares pas- tries. During the year the girls in the cooking classes learn the fundamentals of good cook- ing and how to prepare wholesome, nutritious meals. The different classes have breakfasts and lunches which they prepare and some- times serve to my visitors. 1 " 0 - 3 r 7 j THE TREE DECORATED by these home management students made those last few days with me before the Christmas holidays more bearable. Egg shells, paper, and paper cups furnished the dec- orations made by the class. Later the tree was used at a dance given by the Future Homemakers of America and Distributors ' Club. 16 Pn,acyieA, ' ii t(f ia P intlnx and PliatcxyiapJuf EDWARD DOWDY busily locks his form as he prints programs for the Spring play. All through the year, advanced students help pre- pare posters and programs for my different school activities. " LOOK PRETTY for the birdie. " Marilyn Al- ger is posing for Cray Wilson, a student pho- tographer. Students in the photography classes receive instruction on lighting, timing, and other principles of making a good picture They even made Christmas cards with their best shots. A RADIO POWER supply is being completed in one of the advanced classes of electric shop by Eugene Haynes. Another class the shop offers is auto-mechanics where the boys learn how to take an engine apart and put it back together again. " I MADE IT " is often heard from students who are taking leathercraft. I can tell you, girls as well as boys, enjoy the class. They make billfolds, belts, and key chains; lovely articles which can be used for many occasions. THIS STUDENT is putting together the layout he made on a template board to help him fig- ure out a problem in sheet metal layout and pattern development. In connection with shop work is a mechanical-drawing class. Twenty- five years ago this was the only class offered in my shop schedule. TORCHES MADE by this wood shop student were used in a Boy Scout ceremony. This torch is being sanded on a lathe. In the classes, stu- dents study the units in all phases of wood- working. They make articles both by machine and by hand. Adding Acting and RADIO SPEECH is another new course in my curriculum and is given as Speech 4 un- der the instruction of Mrs. Ma- rion Ciedemann. Students pre- pare short plays to give on my weekly radio show, and learn to control their voices. These students are rehearsing " Shake Hands With a Ghost " for the Hallowe ' en program while their classmates serve as critics. A STUDENT DIRECTOR prepares a director ' s manuscript, makes a costume chart, sets the stage, and finally directs the prepared play as does this student in her second year of drama. The directors choose their casts from fellow classmates. PRACTICING MAKE-UP technique this drama student, Joe Thomas, applies character " paint " to a classmate. Drama students, know- ing how to apply make-up well, have helped the community with minstrels, plays, pag- eants, and opera. 18 At Jlait Ant MIKE MORRIS and Buddy Early repre- sent the long and short of my band classes. But height has nothing to do with ability and skill in playing a musi- cal instrument. It is through the band classes that my musicians acquire tech nical proficiency in playing an instru- ment. Class work includes exercises, prac- tice in direction and work on band num- bers. FUTURE ARTISTS create beauty with pencil, char- coal, pastels, water colors, and oils. Some of them work with clay and finger painting. On pretty days, the art classes go on field trips to do landscape sketching. The students also do life sketching, still life and fashions. From the best of these, one work is chosen each week and put on exhibit in the library. HARMONIZING quartets, such as this one, are fun for my music students. In the chorus classes, the funda- mentals of choral singing are learned and the group works on music for outside performances. All my stu- dents are required to take music. 19 9 learned ' With Paide h My fyacutty jbeu ded Faculty Editors Barbara Gooch Joyce Dorner 20 And Onc eaded On jOe nninCf 21 9 lAJelco-med a New SuizeA niendestt ALTHOUGH HE HAS NOT been with me all my life, my superintendent, Dr. R. O. Nelson, is responsible for many improvements in the school system during his three years in office. He h as introduced the employment of married teachers, elimination of Feb- ruary graduation, retirement pension for all school employees, addition of a longer school day for the high school, and plans for erection of the new Ma- gruder and Jefferson schools. FOR TWENTY-FIVE YEARS, I have been advised by a steering commit- tee, or school board. Here, the board members at one of their monthly meetings make important decisions that affect my little sisters, the grammar schools, and me. Members are Mr. S. D. Green, Mr. A. R. Hoff- man, Mr. P. W. Murray, Mrs. G. R Dabney, Mr. D. C. Pleasants, Dr. H. G. Longaker, Mrs. J. E. Kritzer, and Dr. R. 0. Nelson. With the help of the board, this year my gym and stage got new lights, my cafeteria was redecorated, my office received a new mimeograph machine, new courses were added; all in all I was made a better school. 22 Quio-yed the cMelp llteAe iu ANOTHER ORGANIZATION that has thrived for 25 years is the Patrons ' League. Mrs. Valery Early, president, and Mrs. C. B. Coe, vice-presi- dent, preside over the punch bowl at a meeting. j TWENTY-FIVE YEARS ago Miss Ethel Gildersleeve was teaching mathemat- ics. Now, as Dean of Girls, she helps students solve their personal problems concerning their characters and ca- reers. MY NEW PRINCIPAL arrived in Septem- ber! He is George J. McIntosh who came here from Brookville High School near Lynchburg. His education, which in- cludes a Bachelor of Science degree from Randolph-Macon and a Master of Arts degree from the University of Virginia, has equipped him well for the job. MY BOYS have problems today just as they did 25 years ago, but today they have an expert trou- ble shooter in Mr. T. O. Keesee, assistant principal. 23 l+td JeaoUeM ' Who. MRS.

Committees look after every phase of school life: newcomers, publicity, dances, citizen- ship, constitution, and projects. A bell com- missioner, a water fountain and stage com- misisoner and pound keeper, are all members of my active Student Council. " HONESTY IS THE noblest work cf God. " That is one of the mottos of the members cf the Honor Council (above), who were elected by their classes to maintain honesty in my student body. Those on the council now are Mayer Levy, Pete Markos, Joyce Dorner, Phyl- lis Stortz, Miss Frances Maguire, adviser; Jane Worncm, and Pat Morris. They try all violators cf the honor code. AT THE HEAD of my student government are the student body officers and representatives elected by each class. They are Bobby Leigh, president; Nellie Bloxom, secretary; Wayne Begor, vice-president; Jessie Amory, Phillip Levy, Nancy Barlow, Bill Stewart, Joe Plott, I. B.

THE EFFICIENT WORK of my Beacon staff members won them many honors this year. The four page bi-weekly paper they publish received an All American rating from the National Scho- lastic Press Association and a first place award from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. Besides working on this paper, the journalists sponsor a half hour radio program every Satur- day morning. Parents, students and outsiders hear about school fads, fashions, sports, activi- " THIS IS ' THE BEACON ON THE AIR " ' says Announcer Richard Thompson at a Saturday morning rehearsal. Nancy Barlow acts as stu- dent director. ties and an interesting round table discussion or short play via the air ways — an advantage stu- dents of 25 years ago didn ' t enjoy. Five representatives of the staff traveled to Lex- ington in the Spring and attended the Southern Interscholastic Press Association Convention, where they learned a wee bit more about how to put out a newspaper. So, maybe next year their accomplishments will be even more numer- ous.

TIME MARCHES ON! Twenty-five years ago my music department consisted of a small string orchestra. But look at it today. The 92-piece band is one of the outstanding organizations of the State, receiving many invitations to play and winning top honors in any competition To perform at all the football games in the Fall and keep up with other public appearances, the members of the wood- wind, brass and percussion sections and the flagtwirlers drag their weary bones out of bed and come to band practice at 8 o ' clock every morning. Besides play- ing at all other school functions such as graduation and plays, they also gave two performances. In January they presented a program of light classical music. Joining the Chorus in April they gave the annual Spring Concert. " WAITING FOR THE ROBERT E.

KEEPING ON THE GO, the Band won highest honors in the Eastern District Band Contest in Norfolk this Spring; it has been consistent in rating superior for more than seven years. Several members of the Band played solos on their instru- ments and made the highest grade of one. As an exceptional honor, my group was given the distinction of being one of Vir- ginia ' s bands to be invited to the Al- bemarle Tidewater Band Festival in Eliz- abeth City, North Carolina. During the day the many bands participating pa- raded through downtown Elizabeth City. Friday night Drum Major Willard Britt and Sponsor Mary Mac Cray were crowned king and queen for a dance at the Uniform Ball. This climaxed a busy year. 39 Stud ntl AiAiii Me ULANs LIBRARY ASSISTANTS ALWAYS SMILING and hard at work, these students serve as library assistants in their free periods.

Five of the victories were of the conference variety as were the four defeats. MOST EXCITING: The Typhoon came up with the upset of the year when it downed a highly favored Hopewell High, 20 to 19, in Saunders ' Stadium. GREATEST DISAPPOINTMENT: The Typhoon bowed to its arch rival, the Crabbers of Hamp- ton, State Champions of Virginia ' s high schools. The locals couldn ' t get their attack started and bowed, 21 to 0. Keith Waterhouse, Bobby Hornsby, Dewey Schanz, Tom Joseph; THIRD ROW: Harold Gray, Wayne Begor, Billy Gayle, Ray Boyles; FOURTH ROW: Bill Allen, Bobby Fennell, Lou Hamilton, Kenneth Peebles. OUTSTANDING OFFENSIVE PERFORM- ANCE: Co-Captain Harold Cray intercepted a Hopewell pass and returned the ball 60 yards for a touchdown. Cray then threw a pass which resulted in the Typhooners ' sec- ond touchdown, and later recovered a fumble which set up the final touchdown in the locals ' upset victory over Hopewell. OUTSTANDING DEFENSIVE PERFORM- ANCE: In Newport ' s heartbreaking 1 4 to 13 loss to Granby, an outstanding defensive per- formance was turned in by Guard Milt Heath. He was all over the field, breaking up Comet plays and often spilling runners for sizeable losses. Milt also intercepted a pass and re- turned it approximately 50 yards to set up the Plumermen ' s first score.

BOBBY LEIGH, forward, started as a reserve end was moved up to a starting berth. WHILE CAPTAIN PETE MARKOS, guard, was gaining honors on the All-Eastern, Tourney and State squads, HAROLD JONES, center, was selected to the All-Eastern and gained honorable mention on the All- Tourney and All-State teams. TOMMY JOSEPH, guard, and JIMMY SEWARD, forward, moved up from last year ' s junior varsity squad and gave creditable performances throughout the season. For the second time in as many years, the crown of Eastern District Champion rests on the heads of the Newport News hardwood five. Only after a post-season playoff with Granby High of Norfolk, was the Typhoon able to retain the title. After reaching the State playoffs by virtue of being the Eastern Champions, the Conn Clan was de- feated in the semi-final round by Class High of Lynchburg who went on to become the State ' s champions. On the road to the Eastern crown the locals posted non-conference victories over Suffolk, Rocky Mount and Holy Trinity, while dropping tilts to the William and Mary and Duke " B " teams. In conference warfare the Newport five marked up twin triumphs over Maury, Norview, Cradock, Warwick, and Hampton while copping twe out of three from Granby, including the post-season playoff, and split- ting even with Wilson. Post-season honors came in quan- tity for the Typhoon in the form of All-State, All-Eastern and All-Tour- ney honors, with Captain Pete Markos capturing the Agathon Club trophy as the most valuable player, and Harold Jcnes garnering the Penn Williams trophy as the out- standing defensive player. Jones was elected captain of the 1949-50 squad. To top off a successful season the squad and coaches were sent by local fans to New York where they witnessed the NCAA playoffs in Madison Square Carden. 66 fynam 13 JfcoAA i in 193-4 THE STARTING FIVE of my Eastern District Champs before a game.

The boys of ' 24 took on an ambitious schedule which saw them winning five, tieing one, and losing thirteen. The Cold and Blue lost all of its conference games to such teams as John Marshall, Portsmouth, now Wilson, and Maury. The tie was the final game of the year with Hampton. Victories were gained over William and Mary freshmen, Hampton Baptist and Shipyard teams. 67 7a tUe Qabtesin, jbi tsiict 1itle THE CAME IS on as Center Harold Jones stretches for the tip off.

State champions, Tidewater champions, Eastern District champions, and dual meet champions all rolled into one is the 1949 edition of the Newport News High Typhoon track team. A trademark of all the meets in which the Ty- phoon participated was the breaking of records by the local harriers. Co-Captains Doug Mitchell, and Phil Levy usually set the pace. First Mitchell, the high jump ace, snapped the Saunders ' Stadium record with a leap of six feet and one-half inch. The Tidewater meet saw him come through with a record breaking jump of 6 feet, 3 3 A inches. Back home again, Mitchell rebroke his own record by adding three-eights of an inch to his previous Saunders ' Stadium mark in the Hampton meet and jumped 6 feet 2 inches against Warwick. As a season ' s climax he broke the state record with his 6 foot, 2% inch jump. His co-partner in record breaking, Phil Levy, set the pace in the 880 and mile. Levy hit his stride in the Eastern District meet with a time of 4 min- utes, 43.3 seconds in the mile. In the Tidewater fray, he smashed the old mark in the 880 with a two minute, one and two-fifths of a second run. Levy came through again in the Warwick meet, by running up a new standard in the half mile of 2 minutes .9 of a second.

My Mo-deAsi feloosnesi QisiU, Play MAYBE THE SMILES come from posing for this picture or maybe from the fact that these members of the Girls ' Athletic Association have just finished discussing plans for Spring activities to include a play day for Peninsula schools and an assembly program. Girls are: FIRST ROW: Ruth Mann, Gloria Kratzch, Melba Smith, Jean Ward, Rose Alice Burrus, Lynda Avant, Nancy Richards, Betsy Menin, Connie Weymouth, Dolly Vaughan, Milrded Rip- ley, Dena Garrett, Betty Gatling, Jean Roberts, Joann Astor, Sonja Baxter, Rose Mary Howard; SECOND ROW: Janie Harris, Caroline Beaulieu, Dorothy Tyler, Veronica Georgalas, Jacqueline Georgalas, Rose Perzan, Judith Marks, Edith Mason, Pat Lackey, Barbara Alto, Anna Burnham, Helen Coussoulos, Joyce Fenton, Irene Kolas, Tessie Anastasiou; THIRD ROW: Peggy Hosier, Mona Webb, Shirley Didlake, Betty Campbell, Barbara Kersey, Sue Garner, Rose Alice Palmer, Martha Brown, Cath- erine Owen, Tessie Coussoulos. STICKS, STICKS, STICKS and more sticks will be flying around when the 1948 hockey team turns out for a last game before clos- ing season. Girls are Ruth Howell, Juanita Robertson; SECOND ROW: Shirley Keller, Mary Jane Hilling, Ann Garrett; THIRD ROW: Athena Tsitsera, Ethel Williamson, Tuny McMahon, Catherine Owen, Connie Ca 1 1 is, and Betty Jean Wood. " HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE, " seems to be the question on the chilled faces of these eighth grade fieldball players as they take a few minutes out for a picture, while getting ready for the tourna- ment. They are Betty Sue Rabon, captain; SEC- OND ROW: Gloria Kratzch, Pauline Jefferson, Jeanette Smith, Shirley Patrick, Martha Brown; THIRD ROW: Joyce Fenton, Darling Anderson, Rose Alice Palmer, and Shirley llish. 72 cMoeJzeif, and So tLall FLYING ANGEL? Maybe not, but Frances Rogers makes a fine imita- tion in her practice of the wand drill that was used in the " Ideal Gym Class " assembly and in Play Day. Barbara Cleary and Rose Alice Pal- mer assist her. Also featured on these programs were folk dancing, exercises to music, and tumbling. TO PULL THE ARROWS out of the bullseye may seem like a casual motion but to Rose Alice Burrus it shows the profit of many a long hour of practice in the Archery Club. SPORTSMANSHIP is predominant in this ten- nis game as Jane Wornom congratulates Lynda Avant on her victory. The Tennis Club prac- tice takes place in the Fall and Spring when the tournament is the last and most import- ant event. A FIGHT TO THE FINISH— or so it seems as these girls battle for possession of the ball in a fast game of soccer. This is a sport the eighth and ninth grade girls enjoy. the IjeGSiA, My SeuiosiA, cM-aue, GltCL+uj dt in Senior Editors Joyce Miller Ellen Hancock 74 Ma+uf, r fa a ]A . . . 9 Ad i+uj, a dfb nA i A WISH FOR YOU If wishes might I make for you — say three — And had the promise of fulfillment, too, I wonder now just what these three should be To make your life complete.

Bill held a strategic position on the football team and rep- resented his class on the Honor Council. The seniors are proud to have as their monarchs popular, versatile, and friendly, Jessie Amory and Bill Lloyd. Jessie Amory ' s charming disposition, pretty face and all around pleasantness along with Bill Loyd ' s smiling, handsome face, and engaging sincerity won for them the class choices of King and Queen. 77 Uesi lecU+tcj, a TAJU i IdJlta ' - BEST LOOKING — Fenton White Cathryn Nicholson BEST STUDENTS — Jone White Melvin Kurzer BEST DANCERS — Gerry Newsome Bobby Reynolds " Shaded, ajf 78 A aia a eMail of fyame MOST POPULAR— Ethel Williamson Bob Tilson BEST ALL AROUND— Swanson Hornsby Joyce Robertson BEST DRESSED GIRL— Selma Friedman 1924 79 Uen Spit Gusill and Runl MARY LEWIS ADAMS: Valedictorian; Faculty Speoker; National Honor Society; International Quill and Scroll; Beacon Co-Editor; Co-Radio Show Direc- tor; Beacon Editorial Page Editor; Student Council; Staff: Costume, head; Clubs: Science, Writers, pro- gram chairman; Senior Committee: Color, chairman; Home Room 104.

Not only in school is she well known and admired but throughout the entire community. And one who has seen her on the court or out ' ' tread- ing the boards, " knows her athletic ability is excep- tional. It is hard to say good-bye to such a popular student and good classmate as " Chubbie. " — 1924 Beacon GlaU, o 87 u flune Game the As I pause to send you this message on the eve of your graduation, I cannot help thinking of the tens of thou- sands of words of advice which are being written to the tens of thousands of seniors all over this country And it occurs to me that there are many things I might say here. I could point out the importance of being honest, loyal, courageous, industrious. I could attempt to show you the joy that comes of giving of yourself to help your fellow man. But knowledge of these things is either already in your heart, or can be gained only by actually experiencing the joys, disappointments, the accomplishments and frustrations of life itself. ... So I say to you only good luck and sincere best wishes. William £ltumaie, fj i.

Duska will rule over the prom with friendly and sincere Pete Markos, class king. The superlatives " sweetest and prettiest " describe her majesty Duska Cooper, who, a few months ago, chose Bill Bailey as her king for life. As a hardwood ace on the Typhoon, Pete Markos has ex- perienced four seasons of excitement and fame — of vic- tory and defeat — but through it all he has remained the lanky, likable fellow that the seniors chose as their ruler 89 With an Qat ia JlaAx e BEST STUDENTS— Sarah Lou Mott Paul Mosteller BEST DANCERS— Minnie Garrett Bill McLaughlin MOST TALENTED— Tuny McMahon MOST ATHLETIC — Harold Gray BEST ALL AROUND — Bobby Leigh Betty Lou Williams 90 l tf-ame 91 Cftiadwatiosi GUa+ujedL Joo- WILLIAM ALLEN: Stage Crew; Junior Red Cross Clubs: Photography, Distributors; Home Room 313.

GlaU. 0 HELEN RUTH FOLKMAN: Here ' s to Ruth! the lass that hails from Hampton Hi. Ruth has proved herself a loyal supporter of the Gold and Blue. She ' s a lass with a debonair air and she has made a place for herself in all of our hearts and one that it is impos- sible to forget. ELIZABETH SAUNDERS: Elizabeth can take in, as- similate, and digest more knowledge than we poor mortals can fondly dream of. She has achieved a fine record in her studies — in fact she is one of those who stand at the head of our class. However, don ' t imag- ine that she is just the proverbial bookworm ' cause she has a store of dry humor to keep us chuckling, and a store of spirit and pep to make her an active member of many organizations. Brain power, practi- cal sense, whimsical humor — these are a few traits of the original Elizabeth we know. 96 cMal Remained the Same What will my seniors remember 25 years from now? They probably will still be following the same customs of autographing Anchors, displaying pennants, and presenting class night programs. " SIGN MINE NEXT! " request these " mice " as they eagerly hold out their yearbooks to graduating seniors, Ellen Hancock, Phi! Levy and Harold Gray. " THOU SWELL, sing Selma Friedman and Rhett Stuart at the February senior assem- bly when singing, dancing and acting were features of the day. " OH LOOK, THEY ' RE SENIORS! " Grad- uates-to-be Ann Wagner, Jack Stallings and Ralph Waldron follow a 1 924 custom of dis- playing their class pennants on their backs. " HEADS OR TAILS? " asks Arthur Tyler of Whit Oder as they try to solve the problem of a dateless girl in a scene from the senior play " Orchids for Alice, " presented at Feb- ruary class night exercises. 97 i+i Mif cMgA, AIumujA, Reflected the School Life Editor Retho Friedman 98 — r n GltanCf l of the £ ia 99 the GUanieAio+i to ffitteAJuMjxpHq MARTHA ROBESON, mouse president, says " hello " to the school for the members of the incoming eighth grade in the annual assem- bly for the newest class. STOPPING FOR just a second, members of the Student Council prepare to leave for a conven- tion at John Marshall High School in Rich- mond. TO SET THE SCENE for the fall play " I Re- member Mama, " members of the furniture staff give the set a Norwegian touch with gay flowers and bright colors. 100 61 rm. 4 L £altaaL fJlan ia Sclutta basiae, WITH STORIES of his travels and experience as a journalist, John W. Vandercook capti- cated his audience for 20 minutes after the dismissal bell had rung. " BACK IN 1928 when we played Hampton, " reminisces Lamar R. Stanley at the pep as- sembly for the Thanksgiving game. But in 1 948 the score turned out to be 21-0. " ' TWAS THE NIGHT before Christmas, " and all through the school everyone is quiet while Jane Pierce reads the famous poem in the Christmas assembly. 101 tf-n m ManMieA ia Ijo- ' Ij i ALONG WITH SPRING come the " yo-yos, " " Be-Bop " ties, and " zoot- soot " hats — also orders from the of- fice — " Hats in cloak room and yo-yos in pockets. " 1001 BRICKS, 1002 bricks— It was hard on the noses, backs, and knees of the Cervantes Spanish Club initi- ates — but at least they got new hats. " WHAT ' S THE CAPITAL of Siberia, " a student wonders. BIG EARS — big feet — good Beacon reporter. " SOUNDS LIKE FUN, " agrees Prin- cipal McIntosh when asked to come to the St. Patrick Dance. " NICE DAY for swimming, but we forgot our bathing suits, " exclaim Joe 102 fiut Ca+iitant cMaue. fieest 9+titiatio+t, A CHEERLEADER with experience, Sam Gordon, shows the fans at the Thanksgiving game how to " get on the beam. " NOPE! They are not scrubbing the floor. They are just being initiated into the band. HOORAY! No more school ' til tomorrow! " JJJJUST A SSSECOND folks, I ' ve gotten my papers a little mixed, " stutters Swanson at a senior rehearsal. " STRAWBERRY shortcake, huckle- berry pie, " yell these faculty cheer- leaders before their game with the girls ' varsity. KENNETH SPORTS a really super campaign for vice-presidency. P.S. he got it! THESE LITTLE DECORATORS are converting my. mess hall into a ball- room for the dance. 103 Settiosi Sixfltl a+td Sabi, MONARCHS, Bill Lloyd and Queen Jessie Amory, exchange favors before passing them out to other classmates at the February prom. GREETING HER FATHER, Jane White ex- presses mixed emotions of joy and sorrow on the night of her graduation. CHAIRMAN of the Honor Council, Pete Markos, together with other council mem- bers, was extra busy during Honor Week. ALL ABOARD! The band members play hookey, legally, to attend the Eastern divi- sion band contest in Norfolk. 104 Voting, ZaitiltiU, and QnxzducUion THESE FURRY little animals called Hamsters, were used in the Science Club exhibit which won the Miller Award in Richmond. ELECTION time finds students at the polls voting for their choice for school officers from a slate of twelve. A GRADUATING SENIOR says, " Thank you " as he receives the sheepskin on that big night from Principal McIntosh. 105 My GUy cMa Qnxuan typ r WUU Me and Afjfpsid ' i Business Managers Eunice Greene Dorothy Hutchison 106 X ' Ce,lle, vt £Uo.fZfutu}, fycuUUtied, 107 Mr. H.
