Published By The Students Of NEWPORT NEWS HIGH SCHOOL Newport News, Virginia Go Forth Under The To Nature’s Within a forest there are evident forces of Nature which act upon the inhabitants and make it necessary that, for survival, they employ their own capabilities. Throughout his high school life, the student is faced with obstacles and challenges. By facing them he matures and develops, enabling him to meet the respon- sibilities he will encounter in later life. “Survival of the fittest” is the law which governs life in the forest. The weaker animal must constantly defend himself against the stronger, with only his instinct as his guide. Table of Open Sky And List Teachings William Cullen Bryant In the classroom a different circumstance exists. It is not a fight for survival, but rather a striving of each student to fulfill his potential. To fulfill this potential the student sets his goal and seeks to reach it. While the animal has only his natural instincts to guide him, the student possesses the power of reason, this being the prime difference between animal and man. “Go forth under the open sky, and list to Nature’s teachings.” By man’s observance of nature, he sees the depth and vastness of the plan which governs the universe.

In addition, we take with us the cherished memory of a highly respected and deeply dedi- cated person — a person who has given of her time, efforts, and understanding to help make high school the unique and rewarding experi- ence it has been. It is our sincere wish that we will be among the memories she will hold dear. For your 44 years of service and for your knowledge and strength of character, we the Class of 1964 dedicate this yearbook to you, Miss Ethel M. Gildersleeve. work in the office,” came the reply. So, the dean who “just works in the office” will be smoothing the way for her predecessors through her finaj year in the hope that as she says, “no one will evei notice I’m gone after next June.” | But that’s one thing she’ll never be able to do NNHS will certainly know that she has retired thougl she’ll never really be “gone,” because the traditions o: NNHS and the excellence of its SCA will always attes years of devoted leadership of Miss Ethel Won derful” Gildersleeve. SCHOOL LIFE is more than an institution of learning. In a closer view, it is a way of life to those who make it so by support of its activities and by pride in its traditions. 6 By the smiles on the faces of our two head cheerleaders, Jane and Pam, one can see that school spirit this year was “tops”. Dale Mueller advocates female participation on the football team! At least it looks that way as he shows Stevie Gordon the correct kicking position. “Does this look even?” says Brenda Bass to Judy Edwards as they put up the school spirit banner. 8 School Life Is Spirit School life involves many different phases of spirit : the spirit of fun and companionship, the spirit of working together, the spirit of good sportsmanship and the spirit of the leaders who coordinate the activities which enable others to take part. “Is this really OUR Senior Prom ?” says Karen Wilks to Jimmy DeBerry. 9 One of the highlights of school life is the choosing of the friendliest boy and girl from each grade. This year those representing their respective classes were (from left to right) grade 12, Judy Lucas and Gerald Wright; grade 11, Polly. Norris and Joe Wingo; grade 10, Patty Dempsey and Ferdy Wagner; grade 9, Linda Condron and Donald Ryan; and grade 8, Cindy Sawyer and Tony Koskinas. School Life Radiates Friendliness For the first time at N.N.H.S. the two friendliest teachers were chosen by the students. Their choice this year was Mrs. Tucker and Coach Warren Mitchell. Friendliness is the warmth, con- sideration, and responsive attitude that radiates the halls of Newport News High School. It stems from the congenial student-faculty relation- ships, as seen in the classroom, stu- dent activites, and all aspects of school life. Friendliness is also the spirit of NNHS which will long be a cherished memory of every student who has been a part of it. 10 Students exhibit “friendly” cooperation as they file out of school during a fire drill. Fire drills are necessary for the protection of students. Many precautions are taken during these drills which are timed by the fire department. Although many students take them lightly, fire drills are very important incidents in school life. Friendliness is Shown by All Students As Sue Miller extends a friendly welcome to incoming mice, Allene Cohen, Ricky Kerns, and Martha Laws, Bobby Kenney holds the door open for their first day at NNHS. By the friendly smiles on the faces of our senior Penin- sula SCA delegates, it is quite obvious that they are anticipating a good Exchange Day at Hampton High School. Those participating ara (back row 1. to r. Sandye Cohen, Sue Miller, Angie Ray, Alice Fowler and (seated in car) Charles Milne, John Todd, and John Scull; “Any way to get down the steps in time for a class!” ex- claims Joe Wingo to Jeannie Col- lier, who seems to agree. School Life Is Unpredictable Surprising incidents are not unfamiliar with- in the halls of NNHS. Everyday the students are involved in unusual circumstances, which create a lively mood within the student body and the faculty. “So THIS is what goes on in Mr. Conn’s of- fice !” says the photographer as he catches Alice Fowler during dictation. 12 “Ready girls? One- two-three. . . HOORAY ZIP!” Yells our school prin- cipal, Mr. Etheridge, as he leads the var- sity cheerleaders in a favorite cheer. r i, j JE L . v w ' M - Mk Mr I EApy r ▼ - w J JH hgjf v 1 Phyllis, Sharon, and Ellen work diligently to fin- ish this bulletin board before school starts. “Oh well, I was going to be late anyway!” says Ruby Moses as she tries to save the last few books. 13 “Two bits, four bits, six bits, a dollar” This yell is often heard from the Junior Varsity Cheerleaders as they lead the school in spirited cheers. Audience participation exemplifies the success of all NNHS assemblies. Our peppy Varsity Cheerleaders demonstrate a new cheer, “Beat York”, at one of the pep rallies. School Life Is Assemblies Many hours in a student’s school life are spent in attending the various assemblies that are presented at NNHS. Pep assemblies and the traditional Mouse Assembly are among the most enjoyed programs that are attended by the students. The Varsity Flagtwirlers, always received enthusiastically by the audience, twirl their flags to the familiar tune of “Oh, We’re From Newport!” 14 The Varsity Cheerleaders give their rendition of the “Beverly Hillbillies” during the Hampton Pep Assembly. Each cheerleader represents a different personality from the noted television program. Angela Ray, Gail Watkins and Donna Pipkin do a modern dance to “T’was the Night Before Christmas” in the annual Christmas Assembly. Howard Conn, “the Cool Ghoul,” and Bobby Kenney, “Ronald”, seem to have some wierd plans for Mouse As- sembly. This year’s Mouse Assembly centered around a haunted house theme. “Good evening friends”, says Bobby Kenney to the other ghosts of the Executive Board as they “welcome” the mice. “I just want to say one thing . . .” says Billy Taylor as Co-captain Chris Ellis looks on. 15 Betty Sue Lanier welcomes Joyce Thomas and Billy Taylor to the annual Christmas concert presented by the Junior and Senior Chorus along with the Breeze and Concert Band. After many years the dream of a new gym for NNHS has come true for Athletic Director, Julius Conn. Here he is seen at the opening game in the Julie Conn Gym Miss Ranter assists Cookie Phillips, as they prepare the bulletin board for the senior Christmas dance, “Silver Bells”. This dance took place December 14. with (1. to r.) Harry Conn, Mr. Woody Holland, Dr. Wray Sherman, (Mr. Conn), Mr. Grayson Williams, and Dr. Thomas Jobe. School Life Is Memories Students have fond memories of all phases of school life. These memories come from honors as well as social events. Some events will be forgotten, while others will leave a deep impression in the minds of students and faculty. Memories are what one makes them. Looking back over former days at NNHS, many students will remember them as the happiest of their lives. Bill Barnard, Hi-Y president, congratulates Mike Barnes on re- ceiving the Sportsmanship Award for the 1963 football season. Mike was chosen by his fellow teammates to receive this honor. Howard Conn, Susan Price, John Scull and Clyde Point are getting in tune for a hootenanny session. Hootenannies feature not only per- formances by the entertainers but also participation by the audience. The 1963 Hootenanny, the first put on by a peninsula high school, will long be remembered by the students and faculty of NNHS. School students as well as outside talent participated in this event. xvj s m w «H| L. § M M 3 ' ' t (L. to R.) Worth Roberts, Harvey Credle and Claudia Markham are fascinated with the latest issue of the Beacon. The Beacon has as much appeal to eighth graders as it has to upperclassmen, as one can tell by the interested looks on the faces of this varied age group. 17 1963 Band Sweetheart Chosen The 1963 Band Sweetheart was announced during half-time of the Granby game. Miss Gail Watkins, senior and head varsity flagtwirler, was elected by the band to receive this traditional honor. She was attended by Miss Becky Goolsby, also a varsity flagtwirler. This was a night never to be for- gotten by the new Band Sweetheart, Gail Watkins. Miss Gail Watkins 1963 Band Sweetheart Miss Becky Goolsby, attendant, received a bouquet of yellow roses during- the traditional Band Sweetheart Program. Miss Gail Watkins smilingly accepts a bouquet of red roses pre- sented to her by Mr. Etheridge, principal, as drum major Randy Smith awaits the traditional waltz. Homecoming Queen Crowned The homecoming queen of NNHS was crowned dur- ing half-time festivities of the Great Bridge game. It is the second time in the history of the school that this honor has been given to one of three girls who were voted on by the football team. Miss Judy White, who was chosen to reign this year, was attended by a court of six girls. These girls repre- sented the ninth through the twelfth grades. All repre- sentatives except seniors are eligible for the honor next year. Mr. J. W. Etheridge gives a kiss of congra- tulations to Miss Judy White as she becomes the 1963 N.N.H.S.

At NNHS the clubs, committees, and other organizations contribute to the active enrichment of the in- dividual as well as to the spirit of the school. 1 WAKU PONTIAl WmB$ • V, » ; V L hlShifJr • . ’’ ' •» ■■ (L. to R. - 1st row) H.

FACULTY As the larger trees overshadow and protect the smaller ones, so the faculty oversees the stu- dents. The knowledge transferred and the ideas implanted by our administration will be the foundation of a future generation. 42 Pleasant memories, students . . . The events of the present will be the fond memories of the future. The greatest value of a school yearbook lies in its potentialities as a medium for arousing memories of school-day friends and acquaintances and the experiences that were shared with them. In the future, as your yearbook causes you to reminisce, may you feel that 1963-64 in Newport News High School was a happy, worthwhile year in a school that fulfilled its obligations to you; and in deep recollections, may you find reasons to be- lieve that you gave your best to the school. Otherwise, memories of 1963-64 will not be truly pleasant. 44 Mr. Thomas 0.

Mr. Shirley’s geometry students show their understand- ing as they watch attentively his discussion of the prob- lem. Mathematics Offers Challenges Two years of basic mathematics are required of every student at NNHS. An eighth grade student’s course must include general mathematics, designed to give the student a strong background before he enters higher mathematics. After completion of this course, a student may then take two years of al- gebra, a study of mathematical calculation by means of letters and symbols, and plane geometry, which helps the student to think constructively and logical- ly. A student’s choice of higher mathematics may include trigonometry, consumer math, senior math analysis, and college algebra. These advanced courses offer a challenge to the quick and logical mind. With the proper instruction from the teacher and with an energetic attitude toward his studies, the mathe- matical student can truly derive knowledge and sat- isfaction. Karen Richardson and Wayne Boger demonstrate to their geometry class, skill in using the compass. 58 Miss Holladay gives her trigonometry class a reassuring glance after reviewing the homework assignment. Students find it necessary to check their work carefully Four heads prove better than one when trying to solve before handing in their papers, especially in Mrs. Stokes’ an income tax exemption problem in the consumer math advanced math course. class. 59 m, mii iHiiinnm Students Perfect Tools of Writing The foundation of a student’s ability in speaking and writing is gained in his English class. A stu- dent’s course includes instruction in various phases of grammar and lit- erature. When studying grammar, the student endeavors to improve and perfect his use of correct English and widen his vocabulary. He then has the tools to construct a correctly written paper. Literature includes the reading of anthologies and se- lected novels. This reading gives in- sight of happenings beyond one’s own experiences. What the student reads has a direct bearing on his a- bility to express his own thoughts. The school library supplements the English department by providing ad- ditional sources of helpful literature. “Hey, this is a good book,” says Van Rowell to Debby Fink as Mrs. Nelson and Mrs. Ball approve. Mrs. Baab, perched on her stool, has a friendly chat with Chippy Clark and Bob Yevak. Mrs. Milne, Joyce Mabe, and Harvey Credle seem to enjoy Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. 60 Judy Bell and Barbara Halfin industriously peruse workbooks used in fourth year French. Languages Benefit the Diligent Although foreign languages are not required, many students find it beneficial to take them. These languages provide an excellent back- ground in preparation for college and interest students ii the cultures of other countries. When taking a language the student acquires a complete background not only in grammar and vocabulary, but also in its country’s history and literature. “Why, Kenny, you’ve got the right answer!” says Mrs. Clark as she views Kenny Buckingham’s paper. Alan Gerber and Harriet Bolden get helpful hints Miss McKenna shows Brenda Vaness some interesting cards from Miss Brewer in Latin class. from Spain and Mexico 61 Delivery is the Goal of Drama and Speech “Easy on the eyes, Joe,” says Jerry Luckadoo, as he is made up by Joe Floyd and Jamie Douglas. Drama and speech courses afford experience and instruction in per- formance before an audi- ence. Drama students learn the most effective way to portray a charac- ter and the techniques of acting, directing, and stage makeup application. The main goal of the speech class is to teach the student how to ex- press his thoughts orally through the delivery of an eloquent speech. Chris Ellis displays self-confi- dence as he records a speech. Art classes give students the op- portunity to ex- press themselves creatively. Talent and individuality are displayed in the student’s painting and sculp- turing projects. Writing, editing, and m a n a g i n g newspapers is the subject of instruc- tion in journalism classes. First year students learn the basis of news- paper writing, while more ad- vanced students construct the “Let me help,” says Mrs. Ellis to Kit sc hool newspaper. Thomas as he sculpts in art class.

It’s a bird, it’s a plane! No, it’s Herminio Cuervo flying on the parallel bars. Physical Coordination is Required in Gym Class A healthy development of the student’s body is provided through the Physical Education Depart- ment. During the class period, physical recreation is achieved through competitive team games, in- dividual skills, and formal exercise. Through class participation in these activities, a student develops muscle control necessary for good physical condi- tion. Although all students are not perfectly phys- ically fit, daily exercise in class tends to aid the student in his physical improvement. Miss Dinkins lectures to a drivers’ ed- One, two, three, four!

Students Learn Home Needs Home economics courses prepare the student for his present and future neeus. Cooking and sewing are available at any grade level, while home man- agement is taught only to advanced students. Al- though most of the classes consist of girls, some boys find it handy and enjoyable to learn to cook; a class for them is offered in the spring semester. Mr. Lyeth observes the progress of his drafting students. Projects of general metal shop are displayed in the shop showcase. Shop Teaches A Trade Metal, wood, printing, machine, and drafting shops give boys the opportunity to make handy articles. In metal shop, ash trays, lamps, and spice racks are made ; in wood shop, articles ranging from fine tables to a pair of skis; in print shop, play tickets and other material. Machine shop teaches operation of numerous machines and hand tools. Drafting prepares students for engineering, stress- ing sketches and accurate drawings. All shops equip the students for future skilled labor. 64 Ruby Moses, a VOT student, is employed by the school Mr. Gaskins assists Janet Wright in cutting a stencil library, where she types for Mrs. Nelson. in office practice class. Instruction and Application of Job Training Insure Success Those interested in office employment find it advantageous to follow the Vocational Office Training program. In this program, students are taught the use of business machines, such as cal- culators, dictaphones, and duplicators. This class- room instruction is supplemented by a program of practical training whereby actual work exper- ience is gained. Distributive education classes provide a back- ground for those students interested in retailing. Students apply on the job techniques of selling which they learn in the classroom. A student planning to enter a specialized field, such as dental assistance or laboratory technology, finds his job through the Industrial Cooperative Program. In ICT class, he does research in the field in which he is employed. “I’m on my way to work,” thinks Richard Strick- Jeanette Parrish examines a raincoat in DE class, as she, land an ICT student. Lynda Burton, Bonnie Hartwick, and Phyllis Hargrave act out a selling situation. 65 “Center the title horizontally,” adds Mrs. Sills as she gives directions to her typing students. Mr. Willey dictates a letter to his first year shorthand students. Business Courses Stress Technique Two years each of typing, bookkeeping, and shorthand are available at NNHS. These may be taken separately or combined. First year typing students learn the operation of the typewriter and gain skills useful in personal typing. Sec- ond year typing students develop their speed to its fullest potential. The first semester of shorthand concentrates on learning to write phonetics and everyday language. Second semes- ter consists of dictation, as do the third and fourth, with each student reaching his maximum speed. In bookkeeping class, students learn how to keep accu- rate records of the credits and debits of large and small businesses.

Drills Perfect Music Practice for perfection is the main objective of band classes. Band students drill on scales and polish com- positions to be used in future performances. Band in- struction enables the student to develop an appreciation of music and helps him recognize musical instruments by their sounds. Chorus students also practice in class for concerts and assembly presentations. These students learn breath control for proper voice projection. Records are used in class so students will give correct emphasis to expression and rhythm of musical pieces. Hilda Wright smiles as she files a folder of Senior Chorus music. B Period chorus class warms up on scales, accompanied by Becky Cash and directed by Mrs. Carter. 67 Science Is An Analysis The science department stresses the importance of cycles in our lives — from the evolution of the wheel to that of the bird. The general science courses which are usually taught in the eighth and ninth grades include the study of magnets, electricity, the sense organs and light. Biology is a course designed to introduce both the plant and animal kingdoms. Each subject is fully classified and studied. The higher sciences taught at Newport News include chemistry, physics, and advanced science. Films, microscope obser- vations, and special projects en- hance the study of sciences. Alice Goldsmith and Steve Burns aim to neutralize substances through a titration experiment in their chemistry class. Microscopes are prepared for a biology study of the earthworm. Physics teacher, Mr. Alvis, supervises the use of the slide rule by Skippy Walker and Wayne McPhail. Mr. Sharpe uses an overhead projector to aid his discus- sion in the advanced science class. 68 The advanced world history students smile as Miss Wise inserts a bit of humor into her lecture on the Middle Ages. History Provides A Heritage The main objective of the history department is to give each pupil an understanding of his heritage. In the eighth grade, the history of the United States is introduced. A student may then take either world history, world geography, or both. In grade eleven, a more detailed study of United States history is taken up, and in grade twelve, a course in government is required. A study of the history of the western hemisphere is offered to ad- vanced students. In addition to the textbooks, supplementary mate- rials, such as films, maps, and extra books are used in each of these classes. They aid in giving an ap- preciation of human beings of former times and their effect on the lives of present generations. Government students write vigorously as they con- clude their test papers. Mr. Palmer smiles as he assists his history students in their daily assignment. 69 ATHLETICS A A a 5 A All forms of life, in competition for survival, grow stronger as they endure.

On February 21, 1964, the Newport News High School Gymnasium was dedicated to athletic direc- tor, Julius Conn. In honor of this occasion, a plaque was presented to Mr. Conn which read : “This gymnasium dedicated to Julie Conn in ap- preciation of his loyal service in the training of boys. He was a member of the graduating class of New- port News High School in 1922 and the University of Virginia Class of 1926. He became a member of the faculty of the Newport News High School in September, 1926. His consuming love for and devo- tion to the school were evident from the beginning. In the school year 1963-1964, thirty-seven years later, there is no more loyal or devoted member of the staff. His success as a basketball coach is unparalleled. Over a period of twenty-seven years his teams were jinvariably winners or contenders. He has been equally successful as a track coach in which activity he is still engaged. Julie Conn — the man and his record — will forever be associated with this building.” Long-Awaited Gym is Dedicated To Julius Conn Guests at the dedication were Mrs. Conn, Harry Conn, Mr. H. V. Hooper, Mr. Lamar Stanley, Mayor Don Hyatt, Mr. Conn, and Mrs. M. Conn. 90 The 1963-’64 G.A.A.

The teams are composed of grades which represent Newport News High School in games with other schools. From these teams an All-Star team is selected by the coaches of the various teams. Volleyball is another sport in which the G.A.A. participates. As with basketball, teams are formed from the different classes, then an All-Star team is selected. Apparatus and Tumbling Clubs are also an active part of the G.A.A. These clubs help cultivate the interests of the girls of N.N.H.S. While the daily roll is being checked, the girls await their daily activities which may consist of volleyball, basketball, tumbling, or modern dancing. 92 Senior Girls Hockey Team This year the senior girls hockey team played various schools in the area and par- ticipated in a state tournament. They fin- ished the season with a 5-0 record and won both of their games in the state tournament.

The seniors, in a similar way, come together, ex- change thoughts and ideas, and emerge better people, ready to take their first steps as adults in an adult world. This process never ends, for people constantly change to better themselves and their world. Your high school careers are near an end-“an end filled with memories your future years await you-“a future filled with anticipation.” Let your memories be your experiences in fulfilling worthwhile future lives. This past year as your senior class sponsor has been a most pleasant opportunity. You have work- ed together as a team, cooperating and showing enthusiasm in all your undertakings. Continue at this pace which you have set for yourselves, and you will find that your adult years will be rewarding. No matter what your futures might bring, evaluate yourselves from time to time in striving to achieve your best. I hope t hat you will find success and happiness on your future way. My congratulations and best wishes go with you. Senior Class Sponsors You have found, over the past five years, that through unity anything can be accomplished. I trust you will carry this with you as you leave your classmates and the halls of Newport News High, to take your place in an ever-changing world with the rest of mankind. Cherish your memories of these five years, for it is through past experience that we are able to gain an insight into the future and a better knowledge of ourselves and the world around us. Part of man’s basic nature is the desire to better himself ; never quench this desire, always strive to accomplish the highest of goals, and your fu- ture will certainly be bright and promising. Congratulations and the best of wishes to you in whatever you resolve to do, and thank you for the honor and privilege of being associated with you as your senior class sponsor, an association that will remain bright in memory if not in fact. 130 Leading the senior class are (1. to r.)

Keesee Hi-Y In Memoriam Thomas Poteet Thou go not, like the quarry-slave at night, Scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained and soothed By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams. “Thanatopsis” — William Cullen Bryant 169 Judy Mawyer, head of the Typing- Committee instructs Betty Cooper and Lorna Nicosia, as they type items for the Senior Class. Bill Ward, Color Committee head, and Gail Wat- kins, Flower Committee head, confer with each other about the class flower and colors. Senior Committees Through its various committees, the Senior Class carries out its functions for the year. Graduation colors, navy blue and white, were chosen by the Color Committee. In association with the Color Com- mittee, the Flower Committee selected the class flower, the white carnation. These will serve as de- corations for the Senior Prom and for graduation. The Bulletin Board Committee is responsible for keeping the bulletin board attractive and up to date. The class officers, pennant, and Hall of Fame were subjects of interest on the Bulletin Board. The Pen- nant Committee designed several pennants upon which the class voted. The Motto Committee is re- sponsible for writing an appropriate class motto. Typing up material for the Senior Class is the duty of the Typing Committee. (L. to R.) Tommy Flax and Bill Ward, co-heads of the them. David Block, Motto Committee head puts the beginning Pennant Committee, display the class pennant as Kathy lines of the class motto on the Bulletin Board. Avant, co-head of the Bulletin Board Committee, assists 170 Co-heads of the Senior Ring Committee, Ronni Green and Phylis Hargrave, give a long awaited ring to David Workman. The Invitations Committee under the direction of Sue Miller, selected the class invitations, took orders for them, and was responsible for sending and receiving the orders. Taking orders, receiving and distributing class rings was the responsibility of the Ring Committee. The calling cards which Members of the Senior Invitations Committee, Gail Latta, Sue Miller, chairman, and Pam Forman choose the announce- ments for graduation. students exchange at the end of the year were ordered in homerooms through representatives. Several sizes of cards and types of scripts were available. The class song and class musician were chosen by the sponsors and by the Music Committee headed by Linda Lane. Richard Strickland gives Judy Steele money for calling cards as Brenda Todd and David Smith choose theirs. The class song is played by the head of the Music Committee, Linda Lane, who was in charge of selecting the song. 171 Dance Committee The Senior Dance Committee instituted several firsts this year. The seniors carried their enthusiasm for folk music to one of their class affairs — a hootenanny which fea- tured talent from peninsula high schools and the College of William and Mary. Pro- ceeds from this event aided the senior class in financing the senior prom. The climax of the senior year was the prom set in gay Paree. Differing from the customary Junior-Senior Prom at NNHS, this year’s event was limited to members of the class of 1964 and their dates. A smiling Thommie Rowell accepts flowers from her favorite escort, Charlie Snead, as they prepare to leave for the prom. Gail Watkins and Porter Blakemore relax from their duties as co-heads of the Senior Dance Committee to demonstrate “the Bird?” Ralph Farmer, Raymond Staton, and Barbara Weinstock put finishing touches on the decorations for the King of ' 72 Hearts Dance. Barbara Halfin, Norman Olshansky and Dance time arrives as Judy White and Janet W right rehearse for Bonnie Binford, Senior Assembly tri-heads, go Senior Assembly day. over what appears to be a funny scene. Senior Assembly The audience at the Class of 1964’s final production, Senior Assembly, was enter- tained with a witty satire on politics. The setting was a jungle in the fictitious country of Belgium Mungo; the conflict, a struggle for power between the U. S. and U.S.S.R. The sub-plot, a love affair between the chief’s ugly daughter and a mysterious duke, provides a comic interjection, produces the climax, and ridicules both large powers. Each power seeks to win the favor of Mun- go through the use of its talents and gifts. Months of writing, revising, and rehears- ing went into the perfection of this class effort. Tri-heads, Norman Olshansky, Bon- nie Binford, and Barbara Halfin, appointed sub-heads to supervise sets, make-up, and costumes. Headaches, pleasures, challenges and finally success, face mem- bers of the Writing Committee as they compose the script for Senior Assembly. (L. to R.) Sandye Cohen, David Rosenwasser and Alice Fowler diligently work at the task awaiting them. 173 Class Musician In competition with other seniors, Becky Cash was the un- animous choice for Class Musician. Class Song — 1964 It’s time to leave you, Newport High, Time that we must part, It’s time to leave your sacred halls, But they’ll dwell within our hearts. We know with every ending a beginning there will be, And we owe to you, dear Newport High, Our support and our loyalty. The past is filled with memories, Future not too clear. Anticipation reigns supreme as we close our senior year. We leave you, Newport, for all life, in every walk and way, And we’ll always hold your honor high, Throughout each coming day. The class song was composed by Charlie Snead who submitted it to the committee. 174 The past is filled with memories; the future with anticipation.
