Quinta THERE ARE HIGHLIGHTS to be noted in a review of Mrs. Edwards' teaching career in Newport News. One such is her long and brilliant sponsorship of the Literary Club. For many years this organization carried on a high level program and once a year presented an outstanding assembly program. Mrs. Edwards' teach- ing career has been ably matched by service in the professional organizations of the city and state. Her service in the Newport News Education Association, as its president and as a working member in many capacities, constitutes a notable chapter in its history. It is difficult to assess the many values which flow from a teach- ing career that is spent virtually in one great school. The work of a contributive teacher is enhanced by its presence in a school which offers great opportunities for contribution. Mae Marshall Edwards is a teacher who rose to meet the obligation which such opportunities impose. Probably the basic service rendered by a teacher throughout 3 period of years is that rendered to the thousands of students who study in her classes. Figuring three hundred different pupils Der year, forty years' service would give a total of twelve thou- sand young people who have enjoyed a period of continued can- tact with the teacher in the classroom and in other activities - the population of a small city, lt is an impressive thought, it is J reflection fraught with recollection and pregnant with satis- factions for the years of retirement.

Chairmen, Caroline Crutcher and Claude Barfield, run over the musical score for the annual senior assembly. Gave Polished Performances TWO SYMBOLS of a senior, the class ring and the :ap and gown, are admired by Ring Committee Chairman Joyce Fenton, and Cap and Crown Com- mitee Chairman Nelda Cobb. GRADUATION REALLY seems near when seniors begin ordering their pennants and invitations Jean Tappan, chairman of the Invitation Committee, and Carl Kemper, chairman of the Pennant Committee, are ready to put samples on display. FRANCIS HULL, chairman of the Motto Commit- tee, places his original mottor, "We build for char- acter, not for tame," upon the bulletin board as Jo Ann Merritt and Richard Pulsifer watch.

Aided by Veteran Actors Dear Seniors: One phase of your life is complete. The vacancies you leave will be taken by countless others but the memories are left behind to challenge them in an attempt, some day, to reach your place in life. You are entering another phase of life. In it you will meet strangers, make friends, work, establish homes, and be- come a part of your community, What part you play in thi drama is entirely up to you! Yours can be a leading part oi merely a minor one but be sure it is well played no matter how great or how small! Remember, nothing can be better than your best. J. C. RANGE MR. J. C. RANGE The Class Sponsors Seniors of '53: Congratulations upon having achieved the long awaited and aspired goal of completing your high school education. Although many of you have more years of school ahead, the majority of you are now to be "on your own." Many people try to advise and alarm you by assuring you that the adult world into which you emerge is cold and cruel. You have experienced this world. Though in school you have lived a somewhat protected life, this is life. You have worked hard at times and relaxed or loafed at other times, you have been happy and sad, inspired and disgusted, successful and disappointed. Life was abbreviated here, yes - but real. Did you find it cold and cruel? Few of you found it so. lf you did, could the fault lie within you instead of without? Just as a lamp will brighten the darkness, a flame will warm the cold surroundings or a small amount of matter will tend to fill a vacuum, so you can brighten, warm, and fill the world around you. The world around you cannot remain dark nor cold, nor empty if you are filled with spiritual light, warmth and affection for others, and enthusiasm for living. l challenge you to live life to the utmost. My every good wish for your success. Sincerely, PATSY DALE Miss PATSY DALE Their Maiesties. . . .

Modern history gives students a broad conception of world events in recent years. 75 IN THIS DAY and time, students like to keep abreast of the happen- ings in the world. Kent Puckett and Myrtle Sisson find ample references in the library which will give them the information they need to con- duct an informative discussion in their government class.

An earl' review of arithmetic, two years of algebra a year of plane geometry, and a halt yea of trigonometry will give them a good star in the race they are about to enter.

The study of Spanish gives students pn opportunity to learn the funda- 'nentals of grammar and to in- crease their familiarity with Span- ish customs. Daily drills aid them in becoming better acquainted with our South American neighbors. Played Their Parts in Latin and Spanish PHILLIP SAVILLE, Nancy Hawley, Stuart Greenspan, Margaret John- son, and Evalane Green, like all Latin students, find an outlet for their energy and enthusiasm by constructing supplementary projects which illustrate examples of Roman culture and customs. Latin enthu- siasts study the early history of Rome, her leaders and heroes, Ro- man architecture and government. As their study of Latin progresses, the students learn more about the complexities of the language and translate poetry and prose written by famous Roman authors such as Caesar, Cicero, and Virgil. The Musicians Prepared the Score NOW HERE'S some good old- fashioned harmonyl Cay Allen, Jack Odell, Taylor Cioode, Bar- bara Ballard, and Ann Carney combine their talents in chorus class. Chorus is required in the eighth and ninth g r a d e s. Those who wish further train- ing take it as an elective in the upper grades. ln conjunc- tion with the Senior Chorus, the chorus classes presented a musical revue and a spring concert this year. "ALL TOGETHER now--in time," di- rects Mr. Warner. Band students are taught the principles of instrumental mu- sic and are given the opportunity to f u r t h e r cultivate their talents. Band classes are arranged according to the types of instru- ments: brass, wood- winds, and percus- sion.

These students, :arol Weiner, Darling Ander- son, Clarence Hilling, Joe POS- ik, Phillip Pleasants, and Ann -ee Cay, work with Miss Hel- ner to plan and present "Ty- Jhoon Time" every week. "DON'T ANYBODY give me any trouble, and nobody will get hurt," threatens James Henkel, acting as a crook in a classroom play. Betty Ham- bey, with script in hand, directs Jimmy and tells the victims, Donald Stortz, Margaret Hub- bard, and Clifford King to look frightened. Drama students write, act, and direct their own plays as part of their classwork. THERE'S M U C H more to producing a successful play than meets the eye. Drama students learn not only the arts of acting but also backstage prep- arations. Naturally, the appearance and practicability of the stage is set is quite important, and San- dra Cordon, Louis Smith and Kim Fer- son find that experi- menting with minia- ture stage sets is ex- cellent practice, Y , ll..

MEMBERS OF the Honor Council pause at the door of the court room to ob- serve the bas reliefs of men who have secured and maintained our rights to justice in the courts of our nation. The Honor Council visited the court house to learn how justice is rendered in the courts of Newport News. They found that their purpose and the pur- pose of the Juvenile Court were much the same in that both were trying to help the students rather than punish him. l'HE HONOR SYSTEM in Newport News High School had its origin in l933. At that time the sys- 'em was carried on by a number of subject classes cnown as honor classes. To become an honor class. 'he members had to be in unanimous agreement 'hat they would follow the system. The next step n the evaluation of our present system was to al- ow individual students to pledge themselves as 'sonar students in regards to all their classes. After 'his, the Student Council made up an honor code :nd established the Honor Council to administer nfractions of the honor code. The Honor Council s composed of eight members representing all five lla A--.I grade levels in the school. The eighth grade, frcsh- man class, and sophomore class elect cne member each from three nominees. The junior and senior classes elect two members to the council from the slate of nominees. The council itself elects one of its junior class members to serve as a carry-over member during his senior year. Thus the seniors actually have three members on the council. The principal aim of our honor system is not to bring punishment upon the offender but to help that person see the error of his ways and make a renewed attempt to live by the honor code.

ONE OF THE most hardworking organizations in school is the yearbook staff whose job it is to record accurately and vividly the account of the year's events. To become a member of The Anchor staff, a pupil must serve an apprenticeship during the second semester of his junior year. During this time he observes the work of the current staff and takes a course in yearbook production fafter schooll. ln October, thirteen members of the staff attended the Yearbook Shortcourse at Columbia University, where they gathered many ideas and heard talks by yearbook authorities. Others journeyed to Lex- ington in April to attend the Southern lnterscholas- tic Press Association Convention. This time some of the staff members turned "authorities" and par- ticipated in panel discussions. An outstanding event at the SIPA Convention in Lexington was a talk by James Street, th well-known author, who spoke o "The Writing Life." These stu' dents seem to be hilariously im- pressed as they chat with Mr. Street.

Although the band did not attend the District Band Festi- val, it sent various solo and ensemble groups. ln conjunction with the chorus, the band also presented a concert on May 24 in which it C displayed its musical talent and versatility. - , ri x Ali f,,f5ilwFk H -. 1 .si 5 .,, ,.gp-gggm g .K .tk A 'lx - if A i , .,..

PICSKIN DRAMA CRIDIRON TALLlES The Colden Typhoon, operating out of Coach Sochon's self-styled Kentucky version of the split-T, provided many thrilling moments for their numerous fans this year. Not a large squad, they played a wide-open end run and long pass game. Co-captain Ronnie Jenkins kept the crowds constantly on edge with his brilliant style of razzle-dazzle downfield running. Many of the Typhoons' foes devised their whole defense just to "Stop Jenkins." Not to be outdone by his teammate in the backfield, Co-captain Bob Sterling snared pass after pass bringing the cheer- ing Newport fans to their feet. Plagued by injuries and lack of experienced replacements, the Cold and Blue still fought each contest to the very end, never giving in until the final whistle had blown. The traditional Thanksgiving game with Hompton saw the Ty- phoons and the Crabbers battle through a succession of long runs, passes, and a thousond anxious moments before the game ended in a l4-l4 tie. Two scintilloting dashes of 82 and 61 yards, com- ing on the wings of two spiralling forward passes, kept the under- dog Newport team knocking at victory's door, but the Crabbers, capitalizing on two costly Typhoon fumbles, scored twice to tie the game. Larry Armstrong, Ronnie Jenkins, and Bobby Sterling walked off with the top laurels of the season. Armstrong was chosen as a member of the C-roup l All-State Football Squad, Jenkins copped the coveted Julian Cordon Trophy and the Peninsula Sports Club's certificate for being "the most outstanding back." Sterling re- ceived a similor certificate as "the most outstanding lineman." ll2 T. J., Rich. --2 Jefferson Senior Roanoke - E. C.

With less than two min- utes to go, the Breezes were leading l4-l3, but their opponent finally connected on a long pass after having three others successfully blocked and scored, thus winning the game. After this the J. V.'s took revenge on the rest of their foes and won their last three games with ease.

Starting slowly, the Typhoon wa shanded two losses in its opening games but went on to win the rest of 'heir conference bouts and wind up Eastern District Champions again. Their only losses during the reg- ilar season came at the hands of two non-conference teams-Duke University's J. V. squad and Fork Jnion Military Academy. As with all of Coach Julie Conn's great basketball teams their motto was: "One for all, all for one." The Sold and Blue really exemplified its motto this year as the three top scorers for the team were bunched right lip together in average points per game. Forward Cecil Wright led the team with an average of l2.9 points Jer game, and he was followed closely by guard Bob Conley with a l2.7 average. Don Brandt, the team's Jther guard, was just behind Conley with a lO.2 average for the season. Cecil Underwood, the center, oarely missed being a lO-pointer as he ended the season with an average of 9.7 points per game. The Golden Typhoon as defending state champions and leader of the Eastern District quints went into the state tournament with quiet hope and determination to bring the crown back to Newport News for the third consecutive year . . . but it was not to be. Drubbing Danville 60-35, the Gold and Blue won the pening round of the tournament, but the second round saw the Newport team fail to recover from a dis- strous first quarter in which they scored only 5 points and lost to Alexandria 45-40. The Typhoon did, owever, win the consolation game on the next night, defeating Thomas Jefferson of Richmond 6l-47. When time for honor came around, it was found that Newport News had placed one man, Bob Conley, on the All-State Basketball team and two men, Bob Conley and Cecil Wright, on the Eastern District All-Star team. At an assembly after basketball season Bob Conley received an award for being the "best offensive olayer" and Cecil Wright for the "best defnsive player." ll7 DONALD BRANDT goes high into the air to sing this bucket in the game with Nor- view. IN A VAIN atempt to block this shot, Cecil Underwood fouled a Granby player. THIS MIX-UP occurred during the game with Hampton. Newport players, Cecil Underwood and Bobby Sterling tinally got together on the possession of the ball.
