Direction is the north, south, east and west on a weathervane, four paths converging at a crossroads, the view from the crest of a mountain or the perspective the student gains from his schooling. Direction is many different things, both physical and spiritual. For the student, especially, it symbolizes something of great significance and importance. Direction represents the decisions the student must and will make from the time he is a mouse until the time he receives his diploma, the goals he must choose and the course he must set. Direction is the very glue of the student ' s life, that which binds all his aspirations, capabilities and desires together — that which gives the student the unity of purpose that enables him to choose the direction in life he will follow. 3 Mr. Keesee stops Mrs. Garland Conn to tell her his latest joke. Mr. Keesee stamps a “late to class " slip for a student. Mrs. Katherine Bonnett and Mr. Keesee work together to get high school transcripts sent to various colleges. MR. THOMAS 0.

THOMAS O. KEESEE Di rec tion, n., the course along which anything moves. School life encompasses many things, a club meeting after school, a Hampton — Newport News joust, or the gala festivities of the Prom. But school life is much more than a meeting, a game or a dance; it is the interest and pride that students display in their school. It is through • this interest and pride, which is the very essence of school Spirit, that the student is guided in the direction of improvement- improvement of his school, his community and himself. Ij It SCHOOL LIFE The Thrill of Homecoming Members of the 1966 Homecoming Court and their escorts were: 8th grade — P Curtis and R. Gray; 10th — M. Cruz and T Seay; 12th — J Salken and J. Gordon; Queen L. Condron and J. Mercer; Mr Etheridge and Miss D. Ferguson; 12th — D. Bryant and W. Owens; 1 1 th — R. Shields and L. Ealey; 9th — S. Mallory and P MacDonald. The envelope is opened, a name is read, a smile and a scream, a queen is known The Homecoming festivities at Newport News High School originated five years ago. Despite ' the inclement weather, which caused the cancellation of the parade, the queen was presented at the Kellam game half-time. Queen Linda Condron is crowned by last year ' s Homecoming Queen, Miss Drema Ferguson, as Mr. Etheridge smiles his approval. The Mystery Of The For the first time in the history of the Band Sweet- heart tradition, a co-dedi- cation was made. Chosen by the members of the Ty- phoon Band, Carol Parrish and Roslyn Smith were named for the 1966-67 season. This unprecedented crowning of two girls was viewed by an expectant crowd during the half-time activities of the Maury game. Roslyn receives a bouquet of red roses from last year ' s Sweetheart, Diana Price. Crownings Drum Major Larry Bridgers smiles as Carol accepts her bouquet. Co-Sweethearts Carol and Roslyn pose with Mr. Wilson, Drum Major Larry Bridgers, and Miss Diana Price. The Fun Of Participation Overflowing with spirit, ' ' Charlie " seems to be on the way to a game. Passengers are P. Yevak, S. Bell, C. Snapp, A. Stall, S. Fink, J. Grepiotis, G. Goldsmith, and R. Nash. Go! Go! Go! Typhoon fans show their enthusiasm at a crucial point in the Hampton basketball game, which reached an all-time high in ten- sion, excitement, and school spirit. Hey! What ' s all the excitement? Could it be the cheerleaders showing their appreciation to a very school spirited someone? Who is that, anyway? The Challenge Of The Classroom Principal J. William Etheridge enjoys every opportunity he has to speak to the student body. His understanding, his sympathy, his familiarity with the many facets of school life, plus his tremendous school spirit, make his speeches memorable. Students in Miss Sexton ' s 6th period class listen closely to explanations that may come in handy on exam day. ) 1 The Enjoyment Of School Spirit Turkeyman, Gene Burke; two witches, Grace Goldsmith and Ann Rowe; and Red Baron, Nancy Ames, join hun- dreds of Newport News students in wishing the Typhoons good luck in every game. The Varsity Flagtwirlers pose during a skit in the Hampton Pep Assembly. Snoopy, at first an outcast later saves the day (and the Typhoons) as he shoots down the Red Baron. Some senior gentlemen, (first row), J. Creekmore, J. Gordon, display the new LET ' S GO NEWPORT sign made by Ricki J. Franklin, and T. Boggs, (second row), D. Atkinson, D. Whitley, Green, kneeling in the center. J. Cutler, R. Haden, D. Ryan, B. Epstein, and J. Knowles, The Satisfaction Of Knowledge L. Mercer, A. Rowe, and G. Miller are helped by Mr. Etheridge and Miss Lane as they plan for upcoming events. “Is this what you learned from Boys ' State? " Mr. Wheary wonders as he finds three of his government students, T. Seay, R. Haden, and J. Franklin, observing classes from the roof. J. Perkins, D. Bryant, and C. Williams agree that Girls ' State never had it so good as they are greeted by Wayne Owens. We believe in co-education! 13 The Excitement Of Winning 1967 Basketball Queen and her court, 10th grade — B. Smith; 12th grade — M. Passage; Queen J. Salken; 12th grade — C. Snapp; and 11th grade — G. Lucado. Two new celebrity categories have been added to N. N. H. S. this year. Early in the year, the Keyettes and the Key Club sponsored a campaign to select Mr. and Miss N. N. H. S. Elected by acquiring the most votes were Nancy Sosebee and Johnny Mercer. The other new category is the selection of a Basketball Queen. Nominated by the Spirit Club and the Lettermen ' s Club, the three candidates for queen were from the senior class with one junior and one sophomore attendant. Queen Judy Salken was crowned at half-time of the Ferguson game. The following night Judy and her court appeared at a school dance. Nancy Sosebee and Johnny Mercer, (at the top), re- veal their pleasure at being selected Miss and Mr. N. N. H. S. The Achievement Of Nelms This year the snow was an active part of school life, unexpected, but far from unwelcome! What does it take to be on the Nelms Honor Scroll? Nancy Ames, Roslyn Smith, Kenny Buckingham, and Gene Burke all agree that outside reading helps. Winners of the award for outstanding citizen- ship, Anne Stall — DAR winner — and Gene Burke — American Legion winner — pause for a moment during a study period in the library. Are All Encompassed Upperclassmen who were in this year ' s Mouse Assembly are: L. Mercer, M. Passage, C. Snapp, B. Epstein, W. Young, J. Lyerly, and J. Flax in the playpen. i ' ■ Tl . M 1 Each year the student body welcomes the newest class, the Mice, into the school dur- ing the Mouse Assembly. This is the first major assembly for the new students and is always impressive. The assembly is written by the upperclassmen but it is for and about the eighth graders. During the traditional assembly, the young Mice display their talent to the older stu- dents. Mice learn quickly that school spirit is illustrative of what makes NNHS great! 16 In School Life 1 . . KwlflQPL 2l h 1 f ■ : r " r 1 j-TtFfii nji TTy.i iTll Hi a ! i Anne Stall joins other school leaders on Orientation Day in telling the Mice about the honors, pleasures, and responsibilities of a high school student. The first day, Orientation Day, is one of the most exciting for the Mice, Class of 1971. Dur- ing this first day as high school students, the eighth graders tour the school, ask questions about school life and activities, and hear school leaders ex- plain the traditions of Newport News High School. This year the eighth graders witness another of the many happy birthdays of Newport News. Students of not-so-long- ago recall memories of their days at N.N.H.S. After the as- sembly, they are honored at a reception given by the Chris- topher Newport Society. " Reddin ' , ' riting, and ' rithmetic ... " THESE were once students in the early " school days " of Newport News High School. Lamar Stanley, a past principal, re- lates a few of his memories while at Newport News High. 17 Di rec ' tion, n., the course along which anything moves. The underclassman years, perhaps the most important in the student ' s life, are ones of discovery and exploration. During these few years the student begins to explore the vast world of Man ' s knowledge and to realize how little of this fabled realm he has seen. It is also during this time that the student discovers just what maturity entails upon the individual. It is through this discovery and analysis of one ' s self and one ' s world, that the student acquires the strength of character and the capabilities needed to choose the direction which he can follow with success. .■MW m UNDERCLASSMEN This year ' s eighth grade Ex- ecutive Board consists of Joey Pearson, Honor Council Representative; Janet Ger- ber, treasurer; Mrs. Mae Scott, sponsor; Lynn Scott, president; Miss Sallie Gallo- way, sponsor; June Robin- son, secretary; and Marvin Ruffin, vice-president.

Activities at Newport News High School are an important and integral part of school life. While activities are an amalgamation of many diverse and different clubs and organizations, all these activities seem to point the student in one direction — the broadening of his horizons through the many cultural, social and service projects sponsored by these clubs and organizations.

As the navigator upon the high seas uses the stars as his guide, and as the hunter in the forest as his guide uses tracks, so the students of Newport News High School use the faculty as their guide. For it is the faculty which gives direction to the quest for learning. It is the faculty which gives encouragement to the students to explore the domains of knowledge to their fullest extent. FACULTY The Principal And His Staff j PRINCIPAL Mr. J. William Etheridge It is difficult to efficiently run a school while recognizing and making allowances for the needs and desires of the student body. It is this ability of our principal which makes him an outstanding person. His warmth, friendliness, understanding, and con- cern for each student has endeared him to the school. His enthusiasm for each of the many facets of Newport News High School activities reveals a school spirit which is rare for one in his position. ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL Mr. Thomas 0. Keesee Always ' busy, yet always ready to help, is the proper way to describe Mr, Keesee. There has never been a student in need of help or under- standing who has been turned from his door. His devotion to h ' S students has been repaid many times as he sees them leave this school facing toward the future with a worthy de- sire to succeed. 78 Are Of Vital Importance To Us ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL Miss Margaret Lane Seated at her desk, Miss Mar- garet Lane confronts one of the many problems she faces daily. As assistant principal she leads a busy life of counseling girls or faculty members about problems which arise. Arranging schedules, inter- viewing parents, writing bulletins for the public address system and look- ing after the heavily docketed acti- vities calendar are a few of her daily tasks. Kindness, consideration, and helpfulness are qualities which we admire in her. ATTENDANCE STAFF Mr. Louis Wheary is in charg e of absentees, tardies, with- drawals, drop-outs, and suspensions. Mrs. Katherine Bonnet, his secretarial assistant, aids in handling the attendance reports. OFFICE STAFF Mrs. Sandra Bell, secretary to the principal, Mrs. Carolyn Combs, office secretary, and Mrs. Mable Papa, office bookkeeper, are ever ready to lend assistance when needed. 79 Miss Bonnie Abbitt Longwood College, B.5.

The classroom is the crucible of the student ' s development. Here, with the student ' s desire for knowledge, is consolidated a fusion of the student ' s capabilities and ambitions. This fusion of ability and desire is that which gives the student the impetus to choose the one direction which he will follow from the many which life offers. It is also this fusion that gives the student the momentum which propels him down the long road to maturity. CLASSROOM Through Languages In advanced senior English, Jimmy Gordon receives the aid of Mrs. Cameron. Mrs. Weaver hands back an assignment to Jane Schweida in tenth grade English class. ENGLISH DEPARTMENT Effective self-expression in both writing and speaking is one of the major objectives of the Eng- lish Department. Each student should obtain this ability before he graduates from high school. Teaching the student to think, to master skills of written and oral expression, to use the library, to interpret intelligently and to appreciate all litera- ture are additional factors that the English courses at Newport News High School offer. Being a re- quired course and taken every semester, English helps a student to attain greater ease in communi- cation with other people. 90 We Communicate LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT Though foreign languages are not re- quired, many students take them as elec- tives for college preparation or for person- al enrichment. Latin, French, and Spanish are offered at NNHS and may be taken from two to five years. To teach the student grammar, vocabu- lary and pronunciation is the main objec- tive of the course. In addition to the rudi- ments of a language, the history, litera- ture, and the culture of the countries in which the language originated are taught. This gives a broader and deeper apprecia- tion for the speech and culture of other peoples. Jimmy Hogan, Kathy Baker, and Mrs. Mundie enjoy some fun as they examine a Latin poster on exhibit. Miss Brewer, Spanish teacher, explains the conjugation of a verb to one of her students. Nancy Ames and Kay Johnson practice a dialogue in French. 91 Self-Expression Is JOURNALISM Journalism includes the study of theory and techniques concerning the production of publications. This study of newswriting and style includes advertisements, editorials, and fea- ture writing. Laboratory work is sup- plied through the Beacon, the school newspaper, which is planned and writ- ten by the students. From his work in journalism class, the student re- ceives background in editing a news- paper. Here students are learning how to type a newspaper. SPEECH Speech instruction gives students that vital quality, self-confidence, which is desperately needed for an effective delivery. The students, hav- ing learned the mechanics of good speech-making, apply them accord- ingly. Ease in speaking before a group is acquired by many speech students Readings and voice tests help to develop pitch, clarity, and modulation. Students also learn pan- tomime, gestures, and types of speeches. Is this Friendly Typhoon Week or speech class? DRAMA Drama students receive a firm foundation in the classroom for pro- ducing, preparing, and presenting theatrical productions. Make-up, his- tory of the early theatre, and aspects of directing are taught through dem- onstrations, and participation. The annual one-act Tournament plays are directed by the advanced drama stu- dents without supervision. Drama class sure can be fun! 92 Developed In The Arts ART Drawing, painting, printing, and lettering are taught in art classes. Collage, ceramics, and carving are also covered. More advanced students further their studies in these areas as they go into oil painting. Periodic projects concerning painting, graph- ics, crafts, and commercial art stress the individual growth of a student, while connecting classroom study with modern life. " Well, it can ' t be any worse than when we started, " says Mr. DeHart. CHORUS Choral techniques and interpreta- tion are the chief subjects taught in the chorus classes. Conducting and music appreciation are some of the phases of music that are covered throughout the year. Participation in either the Boys ' Chorus, Girls ' Chorus, or Concert Choir provides a laboratory for demonstration of musical ability. Chorus develops the talent of those students who elect it The Concert Choir practices diligently for the winter concert. BAND The functions of the band classes are: development of ensemble play- ing, development of technique, and knowledge of solo playing. Included in the studies are terminology, music theory, and music appreciation. Stu- dents receive training through work with the Junior and Senior Bands where classwork is put into practice. Background, practice, and individual instruction are essential in this course. The class listens closely as Mr. Wright explains the selection. 93 Students Are Guided In Here is a familiar scene in the library as Steve Terry, library in checking out a book. LIBRARY SERVICE assistant. aids a student While learning the basic fundamentals of library service, the student aides assist others in locating reference and reading materials. Also, their attrac- PHYSICAL Keeping students physically fit is the chief aim of the physical education class, which is a required four- year course. Girls learn balance and rhythm through modern dance, while apparatus and tumbling help to perfect body co-ordination. Calisthenics, hockey, basketball, tive displays and bulletin boards stimulate interest in books of all types as well as in new books received. EDUCATION softball, and volleyball make physical fitness fun. Boys ' gym classes concentrate on the major sports. The physical education program also includes driver ' s education, first aid, hygiene, and mental health courses. Physical education covers a wide range, from basketball to classroom health. 94 Skills They Will Later Use Mamie Wilkins gets help on a difficult assignment in book- keeping class. BUSINESS In bookkeeping class, students learn how to keep accurate records of the credits and debits of large and small businesses. Learning how to keep records of business expenditures, the students are prepared for the future. First year typing students learn the mechanics of the typewriter and gain useful skills. Second year Brenda Phillips works intently as she takes a speed test. COURSES typing students develop their speed to its fullest potential. The first semester of shorthand students con- centrate on learning to write phonetics and everyday language. Second semester consists of dictation, as do the third and fourth semesters, with each student reaching his maximum speed. Mr. Willey gives dictation in shorthand class. 95 Classroom Experiences Train Greg Sutton and Charles Comer show that much hard work goes into an article made in shop class. Ed Saunders works hard on a sketch in drafting class. SHOP 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 are produced. Machine shop teaches operation of numerous machines and hand tools, while drafting prepares students for engineer- ing. HOME ECONOMICS Home economics courses prepare the student for her present and future needs. Cooking and sewing are available at any grade level, while home man- agement is taught only to advanced students. Mrs. Kelly explains to her students how to cut a pattern cor- rectly. 96 Us To Meet Future Needs Anne Rowe and Maria Cruz check the IBM cards for absentees. OFFICE ASSISTANTS Working in co-operation with the office staff and guidance department, the office assistants are essen- tial to the smooth-running office operations. Their duties include helping in the office, collecting IBM cards, and running errands for office personnel. JOB-TRAINING COURSES Those interested in office employment find it advantageous to follow the Vocational Office Train- ing program. In this course, the student is taught how to use machines such as dictaphones, duplicators, and calculators. The student also gains on-the-job experience in a business office. Industrial Cooperative Training is offered to the student who wants to enter a specialized field. He ' does research in his chosen field and also maintains a job. There are several fields of study including laboratory technology and dental assistance. 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. 9 . Brenda Boone, one of the students involved in the Distributive Education program, leaves for work. Mr. Wynn gives special instruction to his ICT class. Science And Math Courses In biology closs the students ore o worm. getting valuable background SCIENCE material before they dissect Science courses range from eighth-grade general science to genetics and advanced chemistry. Other courses offered are biology, chemistry and physics. Remodeling of the eighth-grade general course now allows the student to get a background in elementary physics. Biology teaches the systems of living things, while chemistry encompasses the study of elements, compounds and mixtures. The study of matter and Bill McCreary, Jon Scott, and Jimmy Hogan work diligently to finish their lab assignment in chemistry. how it affects man is learned in physics class. Seniors may take the advanced course which includes a semester of genetics and a semester of advanced chemistry. Through the use of film-strips, readings, and lec- tures, the students get the full advantage of a com- plete science education. Mrs. White gives some notes to her eighth grade science class on the overhead projector. 98 Are Stressed For Future Needs The class listens intently as Miss Hunsucker explains a new concept in algebra. MATHEMATICS Two years of mathematics are required for graduation from New- port News High School. A general math course is offered continually. Here a strong background is obtained for a study of higher mathe- matics. More advanced students may take two years of algebra, a study of mathematical calculation by means of letters and symbols. Geometry, which helps the student to think constructively and logical- ly, is also offered. A student ' s choice of higher mathematics may in- clude trigonometry, consumer math, and senior math analysis. With the proper instruction from the teacher and with an energetic attitude toward his studies, the mathematical student can derive knowledge and satisfaction. Trigonometry students in Mrs. Graham ' s class practice problems at the board. " I told you geometry was fun, " says Mrs. Minnick. 99 The Past And Future Are Mrs. Scott laughs with her eighth grade history class while Jay Clevenson tries to study. In eleventh grade US history, Miss Goldberg explains the constitution to her class. HISTORY Offering a means of storing up valuable information on the past in relation to the future, social studies show the signifi- cance of historical develop- ments as well as the dramatic impact of events on the people of today. Courses offered are eighth grade U.S. history, world geo- graphy, world history, eleventh grade U.S. history, govern- ment, and modern European history. To aid students in comprehension, projects illus- trating certain phases in stud- ies, such as oral reports, map construction, special projects, informal debates, and field trips are utilized. Four years of social studies must be taken. In eighth grade United States history, pupils are introduced to the high school and its activities. After learning the fundamentals of the honor code and making tentative schedules of their next five years, they begin a study of American history. Studies in world geography include the learning of basic cultures, customs, natural re- sources, and social economics of other countries. Much em- phasis is placed on locations of states, cities, bodies of water, and important world areas. World history is a course de- voted to the study of develop- ments of the nations through- out the world. It covers the great ancient civilizations and development of European cul- ture. Much attention is given to current problems and their relation to the present. The eleventh grade U.S. his- tory course begins with the ex- ploration and colonization of 100 Stressed Through History Mrs. Williams gives some private aid to one of her students taking government. In modern European history class, Mr. Burke answers one of Kenny Flick ' s questions. North America. Studying the French and Indian War and the Civil War, this course teaches the concepts and theories of how our nation was born. " What is Communism? " is a question answered by the govern- ment course. The main purposes of the course is to teach the stu- dents local and state government functions, and what the student ' s relation as a citizen is to them. Good citizenship and responsibility are emphasized throughout the year. In modern European history, students are taught a detailed study of world cultures. This course, offered only to seniors, entails much outside reading and work, but this study of the west- ern hemisphere is helpful to the college-bound student. The main objective of history is to give the student an apprecia- tion of his heritage. Being able to locate important places in the world is one of the main objectives of the world geography class. 101 Di rec ' fion, n., the course along which anything moves. The quarterback running toward the goal post, the basketball player driving down the court, and the track man racing toward the finish line are all striving in the same direction — that of victory. But particpiation in athletics offers the student much more than a chance at grasping the fame and honor which accompany victory. Athletics offer the student the chance to develop his potential to the fullest extent through competitive activities, to develop strength of character that only team work can bring and to appreciate the great value of perseverance and loyalty. o SPORTS PETIE YEVAK Co-captain Senior — Linebacker DALE LUCADO Junior — Cornerback DOUG DICKINSON Sophomore — Halfback DONNIE CARTER Junior — Fullback FOOTBALL N.N.

Hogan look hopefully toward the coming season. Coaches C W. Nuttycomb, J. J. LoFrese, C. J. Browne, and H. Hott prepare the team for the hard season ahead of them. Ending the season in third place, the Gold and Blue Typhoons showed a definite lack of experience and size Despite this, no shortage of a strong com- petitive spirit and a desire to win was displayed. No matter who was favored and by what odds, our team took the field as the champs, the Newport News Typhoons. It was evident from the beginning that the Typhoons were aiming to reclaim the first place title that was won last year The coaches, boys, and stu- dent body all realized that this goal would not be easy to obtain. It would take long practice and hard work. From the beginning, the " Monster " defense was plagued by its relatively small size, and the " Gang- ster " offense showed the problems involved when a new system is begun. The task of making up for these problems rested on the shoulders of the coaches, but they could only tell the boys what to do. It was up to each individual player to try his best to do as he had been told. In the Homecoming Game, Larry Burden demonstrates how a second effort can pick up extra yardage. " Monsters " cause an important fumble in the Kellam game. 106 For Season Ahead The 1966 football team consists of (first row) — managers J. Peoples, A. Jones, H. Hudson, J. Lovitt. (second row) — D. Cutler, J. Hicks, T. Holcomb, R. Fordham, B. McClelland, T. Koskinas, B. Orie, P. Yevak, J. Hogan, R. Gore, D. McCall, S. Morris, D. Lucado, D. Dickinson, B. Hogan, R. Nash (third row) — Coach J, J.

Smith, A. Rice, S. Walker, Coach C. J. Browne, Coach C. W. Nuttycomb. When the season ended, the coaches and team knew that they had tried their best to reach their goal. If a game was lost, it was because the team had been defeated by the opponent and not by its lack of spirit. As long as any team displays the spirit that the Newport News Typhoons did, it can be considered a successful season. Ben Hogan picks up important yardage against Kecoughtan. In the Warwick game, Jimmy Hogan shows he can run as well as pass. 107 Offense, Defense Lack Again this year, the Typhoon " Monsters " served as Newport Wilson, D Lucado, B. Hogan, P. Yevak, R. Fordham, D. Dicken- Ne ws defensive unit. The members are K. Hough, B. Cook, M. son, P. Howard, N. Kozloski, and R. Nash. The 1966 football season was begun with a 19-18 win over the York Falcons. From the beginning, it was evident that the Gold and Blue was going to try its best to have a successful season. In the second conference game, the Typhoons dealt the Kecoughtan Warriors a strong blow with a 32-12 win. The best game of the season was played against Denbigh when the Patriots received a 60-13 defeat. The two state records that were made in this game marked it as the zenith of the entire year. Next came the traditional Turkey Day clash with Hampton. Both teams had won twenty-eight games in the series with twelve other games ending in ties. The Ty- phoons entered the traditional clash know- ing that they would have to play the best game of the season in order to be the vic- tors, but the Hampton Crabbers proved too much and dealt the Gold and Blue a 55-6 defeat. The Gangsters " , the new offensive unit, are (in counter-clockwise order) K Thomas, T Holcomb, D. Carter, D Dickinson, B. Hogan, B. Griffith, N. Kozloski, T. Comer, P. Yevak, B. Cook, J. Hogan, J.

Gilbert, Manager, Coach C. Woollum, and C. Smith, Manager, (second row) T. Holcomb, R. Nichols, S. Jackson, B. Hogan, At the first of the season, many spectators asked, " Why does Newport News keep on winning? " The answer to this question is very simple. The Typhoons made up in desire what they lacked in M. Scott, D. McCoy, T. Seay, W. Owens, J. Fisher, R. Reeves, and N. Sosebee. height. This desire proved so strong that it allowed Newport News to win second place in the Peninsula District. Coach C. Woollum and Co-captains T. Seay and W. Owens lead the 1967 basketball team. As Wayne Owens goes in for two . . . Hey, what ' s going on behind that ball? End-Of-Season Record RRlO ?$ Rodney Hitchens meets a forceful resistance in an attempt for two points. A host of Newport News cagers get into rebound position in their second meeting with the Kecoughtan Warriors. Before the season began, many people felt that the Newport News team ' s lack of height and experi- ence would handicap it. At the end of the season, the team ' s hard work and determination were reward- ed with a 14-4 record and second place in the Penin- sula District. Newport News opened the 1967 season with four non-conference wins. This streak was continued as the Typhoons easily overcame Denbigh and York. Warwick and Ferguson also went down in defeat, but gave strenuous opposition. Warwick threatened to come back in the second half and to overpower the favored Typhoons, while Ferguson played even ball until the Mariners lost their momentum late in the game. Kecoughtan handed the Gold and Blue its first loss and was the biggest upset of the year. The favored Newport News team could not find the range and was beaten 68-63 by the Warriors. Hampton, one of the two teams favored to beat the Typhoons, won the first game between the traditional rivals 53-44. The next conference games proved to be easy wins over Denbigh and York. The Warwick and Ferguson games were again close, but the Typhoons proved too strong for them to equal. 112 Against Warwick, Royce Reeves pulls in o rebound. 14-4 And Second Place Newport News entered the Kecoughtan game determined to prove that the first game played was truly an upset. Newport News defeated Ke- coughtan 56-52, thus affirm- ing this. The Typhoons closed the season with a hard fought 55-41 loss to Hampton. Looking forward to the tour- nament with apprehension, Newport News knew that if it wanted a berth in the State Tourney at Charlottesville, it would have to beat three teams. In the early action Newport News beat York and Denbigh. As a result of Hamp- ton ' s victories in its tourna- ment games, the stage was set for a third Typhoon-Crabber encounter. Hampton ' s height and strength proved too much as it defeated the Gold and Blue 74-52.

Dynasty Continues The ] 967 Outdoor Track Team was composed of: (first row) J. Whitcomb, R. Williams, R Hall, R. Lyle, D. Campbell, R. Chalk- ley, R. Gore, E. Ballard; (second row) Coach C. J. Brown, Coach As evidenced by the record of the track season, the dynasty which has existed so long at Newport News continued during 1967. From the beginning of the season, as other teams practiced to defeat the Typhoons, the Typhoon team prepared to continue its illustrious history. Newport News ' one-sided victories offered a tangible proof of the Typhoon track team ' s superiority. Cross Country, the almost unknown sport, continued the sovereignty in excellent fashion with an unde- feated regular season. C. W. Nuttycomb, D. Cutler, D. Dickinson, R. Timberlake, J. Scott, J. Cutler, R. Beale, R. Kanney, B. Parrish, I Lyerly, G. Burke, Manager, Cooch Julie Conn, Coach T. C. Marvin In the Warwick meet, seven of the first eight men were Typhoon runners; in the Denbigh meet, all of the first eight runners to cross the finish line were Newport News men. Timberlake, an outstanding run- ner, showed his ability by setting three Cross Country records in the regular season. Following in what appears to be normal Typhoon fashion, the Indoor Track Team was also undefeated in regular season meets. Three team first places were taken in the state meet and offered further proof that the dynasty was enduring Coaches Julie Conn, C. W. Nuttycomb, T C. Marvin, and C. J Brown can clearly see the continuation of the track dynasty. David Cutler, Doug Dickinson, Jimmy Cutler, and Ronnie Timberlake supply the track team with a strong backbone. Season Filled with Ronnie Timberlake tastes victory as he wins the mile event. After the outstanding Cross Country and Indoor Track seasons, it seemed only proper that the Outdoor Track Team should have an excellent season. This expectation proved valid as the Outdoor Team breezed through a perfect season. The team, not any particular individual, won the meets; but several standouts come to mind. Doug Dickinson set a new school and stadium record in the triple jump, and David Cutler cleared a school record height in the pole vault. Ronnie Timberlake surpassed 1 1 6 Three Four . And David Cutler goes over! Records and Honors bigger things to come. Richard Beale, after getting first place in the 880, re- ceives congratulations from Gene Burke. Jimmy Cutler and Doug Dickinson supply a strong one-two punch in the hurdle department. the school records in the mile and two mile events and set a stadium record in the mile. These outstanding athletes, when combin- ing their abilities into team effort, helped the team surpass its opponents. The quantity of underclassmen on the team offers a promise that the track superiority will continue, and that such records as the dual meet winning streak of greater than ten years will also be continued. Doug Dickinson displays his win- ning triple jump form. Team Gets A New Members of the varsity baseball team are: (first row) T Holcomb, M.

Rated by the DAILY PRESS to finish in the lower grouping of the Peninsula District base- ball standings, the Typhoon baseball team embarked on its 1967 season, with a new coach and a host of new players, re- placing graduating veterans. Victories were hard to earn this season. After enduring several disheartening defeats, the Typhoon team earned its first victory with a 7-4 demol- ishment of the York Falcons. One of the team ' s more impor- tant victories occurred in mid- season. N.N. jumped from the district cellar to a fifth-place standing with a 5-4 victory over Denbigh, in the two teams ' first encounter. Although this year ' s team did not have the strength and experience of last year ' s team, N.N. players exemplified rug- ged defense and a " never-say- die " quality that earned them the respect of other area teams. Always hustling, Hank Smith tries to nab the baserunner at second. New Members Gain v. ? Jerry Watkins and David McCoy team up Fulfilling the catcher ' s duties are: M. Mortimer, J. Creekmore, K.

In the Warwick game, the J.V. ' s pulled through with a 6-0 victory. The de- fense worked very hard to prevent Warwick from scor- ing. The touchdown made late in the game gave only a margin for a Typhoon victory. The J.V. team also came out on top against Kecoughtan, Ferguson, and Denbigh. All in all, it was a very successful season. 122 Members of the 8th and 9th grade basketball team are (first row) — J. Lucas, R. Tench, A. Wall, J. Mays, E. Hester, E. Nuttycomb.

BASKETBALL Under the guidance of Coach Harlan Hott, the Newport News J. V. bas- ketball team played eigh- teen games, losing only three. Led by Hank Smith, Ricky Fordham, Robby Stall, JoJo Bethea, and Jerry Watkins, the team was aided by willing and capable substitutes. The closest games played were with Great Bridge and Granby. In the Great Bridge game, NNHS had a victory of 44-39, while the final score against Granby, 40-38, favored the Typhoon team. A great future lies ahead for these hard-hitting, goal-thinking players.

After the members have been selected, following a tryout, these girls stay after school many hours to practice for the girls ' state meet held in the spring. When the time comes, a few compete against girls from all over the state. The girls chosen to go to this meet practice twice as long as they did before, working continuously to improve their poise and co-ordination. When the day for the state meet arrives, they leave feeling well prepared and with confidence in themselves. At the meet, these girls represent N.N.H.S. with honor, dig nity and good sportsmanship. The Girls ' Physical Education instructors are Miss Carolyn Cline, Miss Harriet Formichelli, Miss Ann Parker, and Mrs. Virginia Masters. Linda Condron, a member of the Gymnastics Club, demon- strates the straddle on the horse. Touche!

Lucado, N. Sosebee, N. Ames, L. Varacalli, W. Barber, A. McKenny, B. Reeves, F. Banton, S. Jordan, R. Springfield, and K. Johnson. GIRLS ' BASKETBALL One of the most exciting sports for the girls of N.N.H.S. is basketball. At the beginning of the sea- son, tryouts are held and the coaches select the teams. After practicing twice a week for two months, these girls begin to play other schools. This year they played Warwick, Ferguson, Denbigh, and York. Mrs. Virginia Masters was the coach of the J.V.

Reeves and Miss Formichelli. HOCKEY The first sport of the school year which girls are able to play at N.N.H.S. is field hockey. It is considered a very rough and hard game, but it is enjoyed by many. Since Newport News High does not have a practice field, practice is held twice a week at Jack- son Elementary School. Tech- nique and skill are acquired. To learn to think quickly and clearly is expedient. To re- member the rules is necessary, particularly because an infrac- tion can result in injury to a player. A common sight among beginner hockey play- ers is a bruised shin, a knot on a leg, a hurt foot, or even a bloody nose caused by swing- ing hockey sticks. Hockey is an exciting sport, but it is one which demands caution, cour- age, and consistency. Janet Hirshman and Miss Formichelli demonstrate the art of bullying. Looking on are L Condron, A. McKenny, F. Banton, B. Reeves, and S. Jordan. 127 mm Di rec ' fion, n., the course along which anything moves. The members of the class of 1967 have chosen their directions. They have been taught, guided and advised. At graduation, they receive their admission to the future, diplomas that will speed them along their chosen paths. When the members of the class of 1967 entered Newport News High School, they stood at a crossroads, full of indecision and doubt as to where to proceed or what to accomplish. Now as they leave Newport News High School, their doubts resolved, their goals chosen, they are ready to follow the direction of life, Not as neophytes or as spectators but as full-fledged participants, as mature, responsible adults. SENIORS 1 The Selection of Class l r H ' w . i — j — f — — p—j j r j Senior class officers are: Jennifer Perkins, treasurer; Glenn Miller, president; Mrs. Thomas, sponsor; Margaret Passage, vice-president; and Anne Stall, secretary. Many changes were made this year in senior tradi- tions. The daytime Senior Assembly became Class Night. With the approval of the class, navy blue caps and gowns were ordered for the boys and white ones were ordered for the girls. Rather than elect a king and queen as a couple, the boys and girls were nomi- nated and voted upon separately. The king and queen were crowned at the Prom with the other candidates and the Hall of Fame forming the court. Top students in the Class of 1967 are ■ Valedictorian Gene Burke, and Salutatorian Ramona Rawls The three senior members of the NNHS Honor Council are: Wayne Owens, Nancy Sosebee, and Gene Burke. Serving as chairman is Nancy, with Wayne assisting as vice-chairman. 130 Officers Marked the Beginning Giftorian Joe Franklin presents the gift selected by the senior class. Connie Snapp and Margaret Passage were chosen by their classmates as Class Speakers. Selected by the faculty as Faculty Speaker, Gene Burke, a leader in the Class of 1967, will speak at graduation. Much ability and talent won the honor of Class Musicians for Janet De- Shazo and Susan Daniel who auditioned in competition before the senior music committee. 131 As Mice We Donna Lee Abernathy S C.

They’re built efficiently and well only by men whose skills and knowledge are broad. That’s why Newport News begins at the beginning with its own selective Apprentice School. High School graduates enter on the basis of academic record. But selectivity doesn’t stop there. In classroom and shop, in the drafting room and out in the yard, each man’s special abilities are watched and developed. Some become skilled and versatile ma- chinists. Others become expert electricians or precision tool makers. Many becomesuper- visors. Some earn scholarships for advanced training at colleges and technical schools. We think the School’s a pretty inspiring place, because its end results are good men and good ships. Newport IVews Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company. Newport News.

The path to maturity has merged with the highway of life The student has been forced to ponder on what graduation means; he has had to decide in which direction he will travel, and which turn his life will take. He has brought to bear all the inner resources and knowledge that he has developed and acquired in five years of high school. Hopefully a fusion of the academic and the secular has occurred. It is to be hoped that the student has gained the capabilities and the character he will need to face the future unafraid. 216
