Mr. Caywood Receives Anchor Dedication It was only two years ago that Mr. John Caywood arrived at Newport and became head of our Typhoon family. Now students and teachers don’t know what they would do without him. A veteran administrator, he has provided NNHS with a superior principal and a friend. When all the minor catastrophies of school life shatter the patience of everyone else, there is always one person who will listen. Many people have taken advantage of the open door to Mr. Caywood’s office during the school year. There are not many people who go to Saturday morning J.V. baseball games in the rain, who attend all of the many concerts, drama productions, and other social events of the school, who agree to be auctioned as a senior class slave, or who show school pride through good old fashioned support. But then there are not many folks like Mr. Caywood. Sometimes it’s a real relief to see his face all crinkled by a smile. Other times it’s nice to see your concern reflected in the depths of his eyes. It’s always wonderful to see a man totally involved with other people and with life. To such a man, Mr. John M. Caywood, we proudly dedicate the 1969 Anchor. Surrounded by papers, Principal Caywood busily works at his office desk. Mr. Caywood and his wife, Gladys, find a few spare moments during their hurried schedules to relax together. 5 People Involved In School Life Trudging through rainy Mondays Dashing through mad mad fun-days Savoring the uniqueness of each day.

' ag ai . r c; • Each day holds a secret magic, a personality all its own As fascinating as the people who live it, the friends that you have known And the people you’ll meet tomorrow. Shuffling down the crowded hall, exchanging a glance and a smile; Working with teachers, teammates, and friends, enjoying for a while The hubbub of the cafeteria each morning. This constant contact with people throughout the hurried day Is an integral part of school life; the things we do and say With other people help us understand ourselves. 9 10 At times you have to dig in and give it all you can So you read, write, and study, then you begin again For it’s a learning cycle. Some pick up IBM cards or help the library out. All carry piles of books that seem to weigh about A ton by fourth period. But none of the work is that hard; much of it is fun. And you always get your reward when the job is done. You ’re paid in full with satisfaction. 11 12 ' v Jf ’ % Va|KP!§i fa -Si i jirA IJfl I vi JR V ti The skits and cheers at assembly get you all worked up for the game, And you go and yell your heart out; the fun is just the same Regardless of what the scoreboard says. There are lots of really great times- just eating can be fun. Or helping paint a poster through which the team will run Before the game. The blasting electric music drowns out all you say So with a laugh you just let go and dance your cares away Until you feel free and happy. 13 14 Sometimes you find yourself busy -busy just being yourself. You fonn new ideas while expressing the old, then share them with others or else Ponder them quietly alone. Other times you ’re so happy that you laugh just as loud as you please. But the laughter, you find, doesn ’t always last; it comes, then suddenly leaves Like a splash of sunlight bordered by shifting shadows. So the school year quickly passes, with smiles and a few tears too. You have crazy moods and you can ’t understand all the changes you ’re going through But you can feel yourself growing inside. The “show you ’re proud” excitement of a national election year Stirred the mood at Newport, a mood you could actually hear In the voices of the chorus and flap-whirring of satin flags. j I! I! That distinctive unique brand, the mark of ‘69c i Was stamped upon everything from long hair and crowded time To the beaming face of a newly crowned queen. i : The popping crackling flames and the bonfire’s blasting heat Were melted by the night, but the embers at our feet.

Band Director Becomes Assistant Principal Replacing a wooden baton for a disciplinary “board of education,” Mr. James P. Wilson relin- quished his previous position as director of the band and head of the Music Department to assume the role of assistant principal. Mr. Wilson’s presence in the administration has added strength and stability to the activities and program of the school. Mr. John M. Caywood is in his second year as principal of Newport News High School. He is, in the words of a student, “real special.” Admired by students and faculty alike, he is one who fulfills all the requirements of an excellent administrator. Miss Margaret Lane, in her fifth year as assistant principal, counsels and disciplines girls, makes out schedules, and in general, presides over the office as “first lady” in a gracious manner. Newport News High School is fortunate to have three exceptional administrators. Where experience, wisdom, and intelligence count, these score an A+. Left: Mr. Caywood ponders over the day’s problems.

V : A - ■ - Students Strive for Oral, Written Skills “Vocabulary, themes, quizzes, grammar, term papers, novels . . . where will it all end?” the student wonders. “Who ever thought the study of the English language could be so complicated?” “New” English was introduced to the eleventh grade classes this year in an attempt to expand the new approach to all grade levels. Previously eighth, ninth, and tenth grade students tackled the problems of a transitional terminology featuring such words as morphemes, phonemes, and graphemes. With the deafening gong of a bell, the action in Shakespeare’s well-known tragedy, Hamlet, unfolded before the eyes of senior English students. The dramatic presentation film revived an interpretive power that is often hampered by merely reading the play individually. More recordings, transparencies, films, and other audio-visual materials have been incorporated into the Language Arts courses this year. Bearing a grim countenance, the pupil tightly gripped his pencil and began to scribble a word across the previously unmarked paper. Personal expression through literary composition was encouraged as stu- dents submitted work for Launchings, essay contests, and forensic activities. L. Tucker and J. Morgan present a pantomime in class.

As the U.S. History drama- tization progressed, the family, portrayed by students in the class, encountered governmental influence, ranging from political bosses to city taxes. “Government is no stronger than the intelligence of its voters,” claimed Mr. Wheary during a lecture in government class one day. in an effort to familiarize students with democracy in action, seniors, accom- panied by Miss Ann Edison, visited the Virginia General Assembly in Richmond in March. A special session for the purpose of constitutional revision was in progress at that time. A variety of field trips enriched the social studies program this year as students from all the history classes participated. In the fall, eighth graders jour- neyed to Williamsburg to tour this colonial town while the Modern European History class visited Huntington Park’s War Museum. Government stu- dents went on the Newport News Harbour Cruise prior to drawing their city plans. Congressmen Diamondstein and Morrison discuss constitutional revision. On their Richmond tour, government students listen attentively as their guide explains one of the exhibits in the Capitol building. Field Trips Stimulate Science Interest Biology student, Gary Williams, removes insects from the class’ terrarium “Those goggles aren’t going to do you a bit of good perched on top of your head!” exclaimed Mrs. Baker to a student in her third period chemistry class. Deeply engrossed in the preparation of sodium chloride, the amateur chemist huddled over his cluttered lab desk and watched intently as water changed to steam, leaving a thin layer of salt in the bottom of the crucible. Personal observation remains an effective method of teaching chemistry. Science classes shelved their books on several occasions during the year and sought the wide open spaces. In May, Mrs. Sharpe took her biology class to Peninsula Nature Museum to study ecology, the interr elationship of living things. A visit to the Chapel Hill Planetarium familiarized Mrs. White’s earth space students with the pattern and movement of celestial bodies in the universe. “If it’s simple, let’s complicate it; if it’s compli- cated, let’s add some more twists.” MR. J. K. Alvis, physics teacher, concluded that this must be the general conception of the authors of the newest textbooks. As a member of the textbook evaluation board, Mr. Alvis expressed his desire to revive the simple approach to the study of physics. It is really freezing and boiling at the same time!” says Sandra Nicol as the class starts out to prove that in a vacuum this can happen. 36 Mr. Alvis exhibits the law of gravity to his class.

Calculus Added to Math Curriculum With the click of a knob, a moment’s hesitation, followed by a simultaneous flash of light and blurt of sound, class began. Seated in front of the television set in the tiny room designated as the math office, senior student Sabina Weinstein listened attentively as Doctor Richard Prosl of the College of William and Mary explained parametric equations. These eight o’clock sessions under the direction of Miss Jane Hunsucker constitute the present calculus program at NNHS. Sabina, who plans to enter the University of Maryland in the fall, commented, " The course is excellent background for college. Although I ' m re- sponsible for working all the problems. I ' m allowed to set my own pace in order to gain a thorough understanding of the subject.” “Can you prove it by induction?” The age old cry of first period trip class still re-echoes in the expanse of those four walls. Laboring under the influence of vectors and logarithms as well as the graphs of sines, cosines, and tangents, trig students encountered the language of mathematics. Mrs. Minnick’s students expressed the “art of mathematics” through projects ranging from dodeca- gonal calendars to geometrically-shaped farm animals. fl3 OA9TOiaT " I Doug Thomas finds the Trigtracker simpler.

A brief interval distinguished by the speech of one voice, that of a teacher relating the day’s assignment was again inter- rupted by a burst of sound and animation . . . the clatter and buzz of calculators, duplicators, and IBM machines. Students in the Vocational Office Training program were hard at work. Girls in Mr. Willey’s class rapidly scrawled out the shorthand symbols as he dictated a business letter, while down the hall, a timer’s buzz concluded another time writing in typing class as students tried to increase their speed. Distributive Education and Industrial Co-operative Training courses introduced various job oppor- tunities. Those who sought employment with a de- finite career choice in mind were able to secure positions offering training in that desired field through the ICT program. Intent on giving the students some ideas about discipline necessary to perform in the area of Data Processing was the purpose of the IBM course offered to the seniors. The program dealt with the charac- teristics of the punched card, how data is recorded and arranged on the card. Virginia King checks her typewritten form with the original.

Leitch display projects of the general shop classes. During the courses of the general shop classes, many of the students participated in their classwork and projects with a feeling of enthusiasm. The work of the students was enjoyed with expression and exploration which bonded the classes together. As one walked into the classroom of Mr. Cleary where drafting was taught, he would find students in the process of designing houses and machine parts. The students also drafted a radio for the Radio Club sponsored by Mr. Horne. The radio was enlarged sixteen times the original size to aid the students in reading the print more plainly. In the metal shop classes, the students built ash- tray stands, magazine stands, fish plaques, wall plaques and house signs. Also in metal shop the students worked with plastics and electronics. Different from the other shop classes was wood shop. Here the students worked with wood planes, chisels, handsaws and a variety of woods. The be- ginning class projects consisted of bookends, foot stools, wall corner shelves, and wall plaques. The advanced class projects were gun cases, lamps, serving carts, coffee tables, record cabinets, picture frames, and portable TV stands. K. Tucker makes use of drill press to overlap holes. Donald Fail employs extreme precaution in welding iron plates in metal shop. 43 Piano accompaniment is essential to chorus class. “Once to every man and nation . . The music class listens to records. 44 Music And Art Exhibit Student Growth journey to the nearby Chesapeake and Ohio railroad pier to sketch seascapes. Splotches of red, green, and blue paint covered a sheet of paper as a student exclaimed, " I did that”. A gratified teacher looked on and saw growth in the individual and self-expression. While the finished product is secondary, the feeling of involvement and experience is of the greatest value to the student. Activity was not confined to the classroom, as the art classes took their paint brushes and canvasses and with ardent anticipation, headed for the pier. Learning elementary theory, practicing daily, and listening to records are a few things which character- ize the Junior Band classes. They played composi- tions from classical to popular music. Being introduced to something new, the first period band class began with getting the feel of the instrument and learning music. A study of every facet of jazz, from its origin until today, kept the general music classes busy and in- terested. To make an intelligent rather than emo- tional study of music was the purpose of the classes. The classes also studied the inventing of the instru- ments, which they learned were often invented be- cause of need. Study like this and similar study in art, culminated the year’s music and art program. With the dab of a paint brush, color dots the canvas. Students of the art class sketch outdoor scenery. D. Drummond puts the beauty of a scene on to paper through water colors. 45 The universal gym, a system of equipment that depends on the addition of weights, provides exercise for ten boys at once. Home Ec. and Phys. Ed. Shape Students Concluding her talk, guest speaker Mrs. Mary Hutchins, owner of the Virginia School of Hair Design, initiated a question and answer period into the program. Home Economics students commented on the previous topic of discussion, “Beauty is a Woman’s Business.” Mrs. Hutchins’ visit during class- time familiarized students with career opportunities in the field of cosmetology and hair styling. This year’s emphasis on consumer education initiated the plans for the inclusion of a program of occupational courses in home economics that is similar to the present DE and ICT schedules. On May 13, in connection with the PTA, there was a cafeteria exhibit of all clothing made during the year. In addition to study in cooking and sewing, students received instruction in good grooming, child care, expense management, and marriage preparation. “Twenty-five jumping jacks on the count of two . . . Ready, begin.” Another year of calisthentics, gymnastics, and sports rounded off the physical education program at NNHS. Participation in gym class not only offered involvement in a variety of sports but afforded a brief respite from a day of strictly mental activity as well. Larnia Jackson pins the hemline in place on Janet Remak’s new spring dress. Sandra King and Becky Seldomridge complete their baking activities with the spreading of creamy icing across the top of a chocolate layer cake. Dressed for their parts, Beth Massey and George Barrow dramatize a French conversation between two small children. B. Franklin writes Spanish words on board. Miss Parnell aids Faye Cheek in Spanish. Robert Tench and Mrs. L. Mundie 48 Dramatics Infiltrates Language Classes Drama students prepare the scenery for a drama department production. “OK. Let’s go over it again. I’ll never remember these lines. It’s hard enough to memorize English . . . and I have to learn this play in French!” Students uttered their complaints as the assignment in third year French class was confirmed. Surprisingly enough, the performance of the three-character dra- ma sketch was handled commendably. With a mini- mun of behind-the-scene prompting by Mrs. Harper, French teacher, the student actors managed to re- member their lines. Similar situations arose in both the Latin and Spanish classes where activities empha- sized dialogue or conversational skits. “The art of dramatics is not learned just from books,” declared Mr. Anderson, drama teacher. “One must participate in it as well as read about it.” Each day was a little different. Often the place of study varied from the classroom to some site off school grounds such as the opera warehouse across the street. Involvement also extended beyond the class- room as drama students participated in each auditori- um production. Backstage arrangements for scenery, lighting, and sound were taken care of by members of the drama classes. The drama program at NNHS definitely commanded a host of activities.

People involved in activities N H S, Honor Council Uphold High Ideals With a towering pastel mountain for the back- ground the eight robed members of the National Honor Society descended the stage stairs into the audience. They tapped those Juniors and Seniors who had been chosen by the faculty as superior in scholarship, leadership, service and character. After the 20 new members received certificates and arm bands from Mr. Caywood, they performed a candle- lighting ceremony. The assembly was concluded by the Concert Choir’s singing of Climb Every Mountain. A reception for the new members and their parents followed in the cafeteria. Books, books, and more books confronted the National Honor Society members as they assumed the responsibility of operating the lost and found book room as a service, project. In November, delegates were sent to the district N.H.S. convention at the College of William and Mary. Newport News High School’s Honor Council is the oldest student administered system in the state. In private meetings, the Honor Council strives to make offenders of the honor code realize the value and importance of honor in every day life. Sandra Nicols, member of the National Honor Society sorts misplaced books to be picked up later by students for a small fee. National Honor Society members were: First Row: G. Perry, B. B. Smith, J. Linhart, M. K. Massey, S. Oliver, A. Wall. Third Row: D. Pierce, D. Buchanan, S. Weinstein, J. Schweida, P. Leong, N. Webb, Stall, D. Thomas, L. Deane, R. Pierce, M. Mortimer, G. Hankins, T. P. Long. Second Row: S. Nichols, R. Lerner, J. Parker, D. Caldwell, Brenner. 52 Honor Council members (from left) K. Pressgraves, D. Caldwell, M, Wolfe, M. Hamel, Mr. Lipscomb, J. Whitcomb, Mr. Correll, J.

Serving as Honor Council officers were J. Linhart, J. Whitcomb, and P. Long. 53 Officers and Committees Execute SCA Plans Mid-year, Mrs. D. Coleman became S.C.A. advisor. Membership in the Student Cooperative Association is composed of the entire student body. The Student Council and the Executive Board make up the two arms of the S.C.A. and it is a distinct honor to be selected to membership of either body. Acting as the steering committee for the Student Council, the Executive Board meets regularly for the purpose of planning all activities and suggesting any improvements within the school or the organization. The Student Council, center of all the student activities, consists of an elected representative of each homeroom in the building. These members have the responsibility of reporting back to their homerooms whatever the SCA is promoting and of seeking the support of each student body member. Orientation for the mice is always an integral part of the fall activities. For the first time, no Mouse Assembly was held, but the talent of the mice was used in the Christmas Assembly. Perhaps the outstanding event of the year was the school election. More candidates, more publicity, more voting indicated that interest was high. Dances, elections, assemblies, school spirit — what- ever it was, the SCA was behind it. S.C.A. officers for 1968-69 were: President, R. Chalkley; Vice-President, C.

Polishing trophies is the job of W. Mercer and B. Smith, House heads. It was a year of activity for all SCA committees. Beginning the year, the Citizenship Committee presented apples and slates to welcome all teachers to school. The Special Events Committee was on the job helping with mice orientation as school began. The Christmas Assembly was also its responsibility. The Cafeteria Committee faithfully made posters for the cafeteria bulletin board. The Publicity Com- mittee kept posted all the important events of the year on the new bulletin board in the cafeteria. Events and people making the news were cut out and pasted in the scrapbook by the Scrapbook heads. Cards, flowers, and other remembrances were taken care of by the Remembrance Committee. Interest in decorating Thanksgiving and Christmas doors was evoked by the House Committee. It also polished and dusted trophy cases during the year. Three very successful dances were held during the year by the Dance Committee. The School Spirit Committee kept the student body energized by encouraging it to support all school activities. In all, nine standing committees of the SCA worked hard and long. The SCA encouraged involve- ment of the students, by the students, for the students. 57 Student Elections Claim Interest of All Rivaling the national election in procedure as well as excitement and suspense, the SCA elections were held with energy and anticipation. The Election Committee and Helen Konstant set up private voting booths, checked voters names, handed out ballots and counted the final votes. Twelve candidates vied for the four SCA offices. Even though the candidates knew from the beginning that only one for each office would emerge victorious, this did not dampen their spirits but only served to spur them on. Poster parties added gaiety to the festivities, giving an opportunity for work and fellow- ship at the same time. A closeness was felt by the candidates and their supporters as they strove for a common goal— winning the election. Finally the fateful day arrived. A tangible tenseness could be felt and the air was electrified with frenzy and expectation. For two hours the candidates waited in anguish, knowing the die was cast; no campaigning would help them now— the student body had made its final decision. Running feet, a gasp, a scream and then cries of joy or defeat. The winners of the SCA elections were announced for the year of 1969-1970. R. Shook, S. Franchesci, and B. Crosly work hard to make the best posters. 58 r AM ifr i a x 1 i A V x f ' Vfe v A |g 1 V " l J f 1 Helen Konstant, elections chairman, is busily checking senior names off the voting list as they await their turn to cast their ballots.

Beacon, the six-page newspaper published every two weeks, was the exclusive work of the journalism students; only the actual printing of the newspaper took place out of school. The thirteen students comprising the 1968 69 staff sold advertisements, took pictures, wrote feature articles and editorials, and covered a wide range of sports’ activities in and out of school. Led by Rhonda Sherwood and Ruth Lerner, co-editors, the Beacon introduced the use of a new masthead in up-dating the newspaper. Those students who chose to work on the 1968—69 Launchings had quite a reputation to live up to. The book was expanded to include more art work, as well as short stories, essays, and various types of poetry. To insure interest in the submission of good material for Launchings, Editor David Thomas and his staff conducted a contest, with the authors of the three best written selections and the artists of the three best drawings receiving monetary prizes and having their works published. Right: Editor David Thomas and sponsor Miss Gail Williams take a final look at the 1968-69editionof Launchings before distribution to the students. Launchings staff members were D. Thomas, R. Chalkley, Miss Gail Williams, R. Chalkley, P. Murphy, and R. Lerner. Missing from the picture is B. Smith. 60 Diligently working on the Beacon were Rhonda Sherwood and Ruth Lerner.

Gail Perry crops pictures; 62 Anchor Staff Labors Tirelessly to Improve Among the many mysteries at NNHS was that of the Anchor room. In a tiny, windowless room secluded from most of the student body, existed the fourteen courageous members of the Anchor staff. These brave souls undertook such tasks as designing layouts, cropping photographs, writing and fitting factual copy. Completing their work in time to meet deadlines, the staff members found it necessary to devote not only the alloted sixth period but countless hours after school as well. A push here and a couple of tugs there were given by Mrs. Martha Jo Milne, sponsor, who was always there in time of need. She often diligently worked into the wee hours of the morning trying to develop pictures so pages could be completed. To celebrate the reaching of the advertisement quota, the staff members treated themselves to a steak dinner at the Ranch House. Mixed with the tensions of deadlines to be met were the fellowship, the satisfactions, the realizations of service to the school, the joy of seeing one’s efforts permanently recorded in ink. Love’s labor is not lost; it’s in the 1969 yearbook! Nancy Webb, Joey Pearson, and Lynn Scott finally enjoy distributing the new yearbooks after a year of hard work.

Grizzle, given prize by Key Clubber D. Thomas. Among the various clubs and organizations at NNHS, four are categorized as service clubs. The Hi-Y and Tri-Hi-Y, Keyettes and Key Club played an important and ever growing part in the role of service to the school and to the community. The Tri-Hi-Y and the Hi-Y are affiliated with the Y.M.C.A.; the Key Club and Keyettes are junior organizations of the Kiwanis Club. Collecting contributions for the Heart Fund and sending delegates to Richmond to the Model General Assembly were projects of the Tri-Hi-Y. Leukemia Fund contributions, the Heart Fund Drive and other fund raising projects were the objects of community service by the Hi-Y. Painting the ladies room of the stadium and selling apple jelly for the Jaycees Crippled Children’s Fund were service projects of the Keyettes. Painting the press box was an outstanding project of the Key Club. Sponsoring a Queen of Hearts dance and giving the entire proceeds to the Heart Fund was also a noteworthy undertaking of this club. Maturity comes with concern for others. These clubs responded to needs as they arose. It was concern; it was effort; it was involvement. Hi-Y member, F. Vretos, accepts gift for Leukemia Drive from Miss Edison. 65 Ruth Lerner, Miss Parnell, and Pearl Ann Murphy listen to Spanish records while Joey Fink adds a new poster to the club bulletin board.

Preceding the candle-lighting ceremony these Latin students had presented talent, participated in the program and been initiated by club members. This annual event took place at the Oasis Restaurant. The Roman Banquet is an established Latin Club tradition. This year proved to be no exception as the Roman Banquet highlighted the Latin Club’s activities. Regu- lar meetings were held on the second Tuesday of each month. Programs pertaining to various phases of Roman life were presented by club members at every meeting. The Latin Club undertook the responsibility of decorating t he language department bulletin board. Spanish Club members attended a joint Christmas party with the French Club. But due to a small membership they were unable to plan future projects. Backing Sherry Hudgins for Queen of Hearts pro- ved valuable for the French Club. Sherry earned a runner up position in the contest by collecting the second largest amount of penny votes. The club also participated in the Turkey Day Parade. A. Wall and D. Buchanan induct new member M. Morrissett. 67 Clubs Evoke Enthusiasm, Participation R. Jones, T. Franklin, and G. Livingston replace brass numbers over doors. Cries of victory mingled with shouts and sharp retorts as the Christopher Newport Society mock election went into full swing. Club members, who had been chosen to speak for each of the three presi- dential candidates for national office aroused student excitement and involvement to an exhilirated high. The next day, the club announced that Wallace had been voted majority favorite at the student polls. The Negro History Club was organized this year to promote knowledge of the achievements and contri- butions of the black man. The twenty-five charter members held meetings the first and third Fridays of each month. Observing Negro History Week and holding a forum helped to publicize the club. NNHS’s new Interact Club is a chapter of the National group sponsored by the Rotary Club. This service club ordered armbands, a gavel, and a banner. They also polished numbers over classroom doors. To promote science in the school and community and to provide interested students with a club through which they can express their scientific ability was the purpose of the Science Club. Field trips to Glouster and Surry and the Science Fair added variety to club activities. David Wilson’s CNS election speech aroused excitement. 68 During their field trip to the Virginia Agricultural Research Center, Science Club members B. Copeland and M. Morrissett observe nematodes. Walter Jenkins points out exhibits to Donna O’Neill, Cathy Jones, and Gail Kerry, members of Negro History Club. 69 Future Vocations Emphasized by Clubs Boasting sixty members, the Future Business Leaders of America were able to host a District Seminar at school this year. At meetings held every other Tuesday night, guest speakers discussed topics such as job opportunities, interviews, and business dress. Proceeds from the sale of corsages, booster badges, and doughnuts were contributed to under- privileged children. FBLA placed first in the Queen of Hearts contest and in the Turkey Day Parade. The FBLA supply store completed their list of successes. NNHS’s Future Teachers of America hosted the fall FTA District Rally. One NNHS member, Becky Pierce, served as district president. FTA officers spoke at a meeting of their sponsors, the DKG. A tea was given for teachers and a party for foster children was held. Members also observed elementary school classrooms during Teaching Careers Month. “Safety in the home” served as the Future Home- makers of America’s theme for the year. At the spring rally, district and federation officers were elected. Our Health Careers Club was presented with the first charter in the state during an impresive assembly. The club visited hospitals, viewed an openheart surgery film, and entered the Health Fair. FTA members serve cookies to Mrs. J. Garber at their annual faculty tea. FBLA supply store worker, B.

Parsons had a S2.000 to $4,500 dream. He wanted to build and equip a community radio station at NNHS. The station would be primarily educa- tional. Music played would vary from Beethoven to the Beatles. In an effort to further these ideas, the Radio Club was initiated. Now interested students can work together to make the station a reality. Usher Staff girls were selected for beauty and charm. Arrayed in long evening gowns, they pre- sented programs and helped with seating at special school functions. They also assisted outside organiza- tions upon request. Meetings were held once every month for instructions and for discussion. Unseen behind the heavy velvet curtain, stage crew members were hard at work. They learned about carpentry, painting, lighting, and cooperation through stage work on school and community productions. Small carved figures moved strategically on a checked board provided unlimited challenge and excitement for Chess Club members. Each Monday these boys practiced their skills in matches with each other and against teams from other schools. Competi- tion, concentration, and common interest vitalized this club, intriguing every member. D. J. Parsons and Don Fail demonstrate their radio announcing ability, Clyde Roach and Wesley Moore work the ropes. Stage crew members Richard Cooke and David Leonard helped paint curtain for the fall play, an old fashioned melodrama. 72 Attending one of the school plays, Mrs. C. Nuttycombe and Miss A. Edison receive programs from ushers Anita Weaver and Darlene Sesames. Mr. Cox Assumes Senior Band Leadership With the promotion of Mr. Jim Wilson to Assistant Principal, the senior band received a new band direc- tor, Mr. Herbert Cox, formerly junior band director. The band continued its traditional record of fine performance by playing for all football games, marching in several local parades, and playing for a number of school assemblies. Winter and spring con- certs were held. Musical support was given to Cabaret by Mr. Cox and members of his NNHS Jazz Band. To discuss and solve problems in the band as they arose was the duty of a special group of students, the Band Council. President Jerry Mingee and Veep Ricky Turner led in keeping the morale of the band high. The secretary, Nancy Webb, faithfully and efficiently handled the difficult task of bookkeeping merits and demerits under the point system. For the second time in the history of the band, bouquets of red roses were presented to two Band Sweethearts. Debbie and Becky Pierce tied for the honor and were presented during half time cere- monies at a football game. Mr. Cox took over a band that was well disciplined and well trained; he ended the year with a band that was well directed and well respected. Band Council members were: J. Mingee, R. Turner, R. Jones, B. Pierce, K. Haynes, D. Buchanan, and L. Hile. Not pictured is N. Webb. Typhoon Band members were: D. Stanaway, P. Riggs, L. Pitiak, S. Lawrence, D. Jennings, S. Whitcomb, D. Buchanan, B.

Mr. Cox discusses with Vicky Fry and Meta Mullen a note in question. Earl Ballard plays the tuba with a lot of “oomph.” 75 S. Whitcomb plays her bassoon while L. Bell coaxes a melody from her oboe. Ray Jones, in all of his band regalia, struts with pride. R. Johns plays the tympani, more commonly known as the kettle drum. 76 Typhoon Band Hailed Best in Virginia Having the tireless job of twirling and marching at all football games, pep assemblies, and parades in which the band took part, was a small group of girls known as the Varsity Flagtwirlers. With a record winning of six first places and one second place in a seven year period, the band journeyed to the annual Apple Blossom Festival in Winchester. Even though they were aware of the fact that the judges felt Newport News had won first place for too many times, the band went to Winchester with an attitude of hope. Although the band did not capture the coveted first place, it received a fifth place rating. All four awards above Newport News went to out of state bands. Thus, the Typhoon Band was recognized as the most outstanding high school band in Virginia. To some, having an outstanding band may seem easy. Little do these people realize what was involved. It meant arriving at school daily at 7:30 A.M. for an hour’s marching and playing before school; it meant band classes; it meant night rehearsals; it meant afternoon practices before concerts. It meant total involvement — by all ninety-five band members. N. Whitaker and S. Thomas practice during an early morning rehearsal. The 1968-69 Varsity Flagtwirlers were: D. Pierce, D. Sandige, P. Venable, N. Webb - Head, T. Sturgis, M. Lewter, L. Bell, and B. Pierce. 77 J.V. Band Members Learn New Techniques Looked upon as the " Baby Blues” in band as well as in athletics, the Breeze Band is an important part of the NNHS band program. These beginners of the high school band program learned many new things each year. For the first time they learned simple formation in marching. To help Mrs. Jane Garber, director, in organization, a band council was elected. Demerits were given for such things as leaving music on the music stands, gum chewing, not paying atten- tion, being late to rehearsals, missing rehearsals with- out an excuse, and similar misdemeanors, which Mrs. Garber clearly explained. Although much had to be learned, the Breeze Band took things in stride and learned quickly how to follow its leader. Drum Major Randy Morgan, as he led it for many hours of morning practices up and down the parking lot across the street from the gym. Parades were an important part of the activities of the Breeze Band. It marched in the Turkey Day parade, the Armed Forces Day parade, and played with the senior band for the Band Sweetheart game. Replacing Mr. Herbert Cox, who moved up to be director of the Typhoon Band. Mrs. Jane Garber did an excellent job of training these Baby Blues. Below: JV flagtwirlers were: P. Hile. K. Stanaway, K. Baker, L. Walker, L. Stewart, A. Roach, S. Lockett and K. Reece. 78 Breeze Band members were: S. Lockett, T. Fry, D. Parker, J. Harrison, M. Plessinger, M. Moore, L. Walker, P. Hile, E. Leong, O.

Also, it must be realized that music must be understood before it can be felt. With this in mind, Mrs. Dorothy Carter uncomplainingly attempted to teach the art of music to one hundred and sixty members of Girls Chorus, Boys Chorus, and Concert Choir. Keeping in mind that experience is the best teacher, Mrs. Carter ob- served with pride the learning process as the choirs sang their way through numerous church services and civic functions throughout the Peninsula. The Concert Choir sang at Shalom, Parkview , and Calvary Baptist Churches and at Noland Memorial Methodist Church. They sang at the State Baptist Convention which met locally. At Christmastime the Choral Department sang carols at Electronics Service. For doing so, the department was presented with a stereo record player and other electrical equipment. Not only has the group sung outside the school, but it has rendered invaluable service in most of the school assemblies. As versatile as they were hard working, the vocalists sang religious, jazz, pop, and plain every-day-type songs with the same sparkle, reflecting the mood of each song. for School, Community Ella Davis and Sherry Hensel are invaluable accompanists. Concert Choir: B. Pierce, D. Pierce, S. Cain, J. Byrd, L. Haynes, W. Mercer, D. Lockett, G. Mayfield, D. Ellis, S. Hensel, L. West, F. Ratley, D. Earls, B. Brewer, K. Yevak, B. Orie, M. Murphy, D.

Cabaret ’69. Cabaret ’69 didn’t just begin, it exploded on stage into a brilliant collage o f people and colors. The second annual Cabaret production opened with the entire cast on stage singing “Cabaret” and “Another Openin’ Another Show.” The Boys and Girls Cho- ruses and Concert Choir performed individual num- bers as well as combining their voices for special selections. There was music for everyone in Cabaret. Popular music, folk songs, hits from Broadway musicals, love songs, jazz, and even a calypso number were featured in the show, producing an appealing variety of music. Stage crew members, under the direction of Mr. Anderson, were responsible for the impressiveness of the program. It was they who built the revolving stage, the runways, and the stands. They also were responsible for the lighting and special effects. Under the direction of Miss Gloria Grant, physical education students demonstrated the techniques of modern dancing which they learned in class. As D. Earls sings the ever popular “Walk On By” she is backed up by Soul Strutter R. Glee. D. Ellis thrilled the crowd with “Till.” 83 Guest Star, Dancers Enhance Cabaret J. Bethea sings “Little Green Apples.” “And now, straight from an engagement at the Folk Ghetto in Norfolk Dave Williamson!” With these words, the spotlight fell on a lone figure, center stage. A professional folk singer, Dave Williamson gladly consented to sing both nights in Cabaret. He sang the popular folk ballad “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” but kept his repertoire light with “Techni- color Day” and “By the San Francisco Bay.” He ended his performance with an invigorating number in which the audience was invited to sing along. Dressed in navy blue dresses with white stripes, white hose, and dark shoes, Belinda Trainum and Nancy Fulghum danced their way up the runways to the beat of the Newport News High School Dance Band. The Dance Band, composed of members of the Typhoon Marching Band, played such numbers as “Cinnamon Kisses”, “Rock Bottom”, and “The Strip- per.” After the singing of “Tamale Joe” and “America”, Mrs. Carter directed the Concert Choir in the singing of “This Is a Great Country.” During this selection thirty American flags, each ten feet in height, were carried down the aisles of the auditorium and onto the stage. The Concert ended with the combined chorus and audience singing “God Bless America.” Dave Williamson, a professional folk singer from Norfolk and guest star of Cabaret ' 69, sings “By The Time I Get to Phoenix.” “Hot tamales”, cries Tamale Joe (Bernard Orie) as he tries to entice Dancers Linda Kirk and Harriet Johns.

Fulghum demonstrates her dancing ability. 85 Christmas Concert is Combined Effort Darkness draped the stilled auditorium. The hushed audience waited in anticipation as light splashed onto the stage, revealing a lone robed figure. In clear tones, he retold the Christmas story as costumed characters re-enacted the nativity scene. The scene was complemented at intervals by songs emitted from a pair of Christmas trees formed by tiny Hashing lights, which flanked the stage. Christmas music accompanied the action on the stage. This impressive scene from the annual Christmas Concert was made possible by the combined efforts of the entire Drama and Music Departments. Stage crew workers put in endless hours constructing the stage setting. Mr. Bentley Anderson, Drama head, assisted in numerous functions, including the nar- ration of the Christmas story in which drama students participated. A pantomime of “The Night Before Christmas " was presented by drama students. The Boys and Girls Choruses and the Concert Choir sang favorite Christmas tunes. The band provided music for the concert. When the concert was repeated in an assembly for the benefit of the student body, the program featured the traditional presentation of gifts donated by home- rooms to the Marine Corp’s Toys for Tots drive. “Papa in his cap” (Mike Young) is discovered peeping by jolly Saint Nick Drummer boy pauses reverently. Drama students re-enact the nativity scene as the band plays in background. 86 (John Rigel) in the drama pantomime of the “Night Before Christmas.

Drama teacher, Mr. Bently Anderson, utilized ah of his creative abilities this year in searching for undiscovered talent in students heretofore not partici- pating in the drama program. Opening the season with a roaring twenties melo- drama, Dirty Work at the Crossroads, the drama department succeeded in capturing the full attention of its audience. This audience interest propagated publicity; friend telling friend about a good thing. To provide the student body with an idea of the activities of the drama department, a one-act play was performed in a school assembly. “See the Man Die” enabled the student body to laught at the lighter side of death as the cast demonstrated how painless death can be when blood is slowly extracted. A Midsummer Night’s Dream ended the season on a light note. The cast was invited to participate on Dick Lamb’s afternoon TV show. They traveled to Portsmouth to the studio of WAVY TV and present- ed live scenes from Shakespeare’s play on Channel 10. This served to create much interest in the spring play later to be produced in the NNHS auditorium. In all, the drama department proved that it is a vital and a much needed part of NNHS. In See the Man Die, “Doctor” D. J. Parsons explains death. 88 The cast of Dirty Work at the Crossroads, a melodrama, takes bows after performance.

Midsummer Night’s Dream Highlights Year Lovers (J. Stone, C. Brisson) kiss through a hole in the wall (T. Edwards). “Lord, what fools these mortals be!” says Puck in A Midsummer Night ’s Dream. Puck, or Robin Good- fellow, girdled the earth in the twinkling of an eye and, with all the actors of the comedy, appeared in the auditorium on April 24 and 25. In the semi- darkness of an enchanting forest and beneath huge columns of an athenian portico, the play was enacted before a very large audience. Magically, the audience was “in” the play and not “at” it. This was due to the revolving turntable for the scenery and the thrust stage that extended out to the sixth row of seats. Both of these were budt by a hard working stage crew. Interestingly, the stage crew did not function merely as stage hands. They became actors as they played the Athenian laborers and put on a play- within-a-play. They proved to many teachers, as they memorized line after line of Shakespeare, that they had brains as well as brawn. Robin Goodfellow ended the extravaganza with an apology for the “weak and idle theme” of the play. Robin was wrong. For in the world of this play there was room for mortals and for fairies. Theseus (W. Jenkins) and Hippolyta (D. Home) lead the wedding march in the finale. Mr. Anderson and Mrs. Rudisal cut the cast party cake. 91 People Involved In Sports Fans screaming Sweat streaming From faces drawn tight with determination.

Big Wins, Big Losses Was Season’s Paradox Sophomore JoJo Bethea picks up some yardage he gained during the season. Weeks before the start of school, a group of determined Newport News High School students gathered to form a football team. They sacrificed other activities for the sake of bruises, scratches, and very sore muscles — or so it seemed at the beginning. Typical anticipation of the 1968 season was some- what dampened by apprehension. In the words of Coach Nuttycombe, “We would be the lineoleum for the district to walk on.” The young football players on the Newport News team disagreed with this as they were soon to prove through their record. Displaying their ability satisfactorily was to be no easy task, since the team ranking number one in the state was the Typhoon’s first opponent, Wilson High School. Despite the odds, the Newport News team entered the game backed by its few most vociferous fans. During the course of the game, Wilson proved they were actually number one, leading to a great disappointment for many Typhoons. Meeting York next, the Typhoons hoped for their first win; the game ended in a tie, however. The four fumbles in this game were indicative of last year’s 2—7—1 season, but no one was yet resigned to defeat - least of all the football team.

Warwick, previously undefeated, became the Typhoon’s first victim. Next, the Blue and Gold dropped Pembrook 45—13. Making it three straight wins, the Newport team scalped the Kecoughtan Warriors by a score of 27—13. Holding a team scoreless for the first time since 1965, the Typhoons beat James Blair 13—0. In the next encounter, Newport News won its second shut out, demolishing Denbigh by 27 points. This game capped a five-game winning streak for NNHS. The following game with the Ferguson Mariners signaled the end of the Typhoon’s winning ways, as they fell 19-13 in a heartbreaking loss. Opposing Hampton High School for the 71st time on Thanksgiving Day, the Big Blue was left scoreless for the first time since the 1964 contest. While the score was 20-0, the statistics showed a much closer game; nevertheless, the Crabbers took the encounter for their sixth consecutive win. The graduating seniors never saw the Typhoons beat Hampton. FOOTBALL SCOREBOARD left side of the forward wall for a short gain. %S -- • • A y ' Willie Armstead fakes the opposition.

The date was September 27; Newport News High School was to choose its 1969 Homecoming Queen. Those in the home stands were almost too excited to watch the game, wonder- ing during the first half who the football team had picked as queen this year! The eighth through the eleventh grades each elected one girl to represent them on the Homecoming Court. These girls were Jennifer Huskey, mouse, Judy Price, freshman, Ada Roach, sophomore, and Debbie Caldwell, junior. Undoubtedly, the most impressive part of the Homecoming ceremonies was the crowning of 1969 Homecoming Queen, Nancy Webb. Senior attendants were Pat Long and Pearl Leong. These girls, wearing formals, and other members of the Court rode to the field on the backs of open convertibles. Chairmen of this year’s Homecoming Committee were Susan Garth and Debbie Buchanan. They were assisted in their numerous activities by a small group of students. Some of the committee’s jobs ranged from purchasing a bouquet of red roses for the queen to arranging for the use of cars in which to transport the Homecoming Court. Nancy Webb, escorted by Gary Hankins, was a happy Queen. Senior Homecoming representatives Pat Long, Nancy Webb, and Pearl Leong Homecoming court was P. Leong, N. Webb, P. Long, 98 J. Huskey, J.

It was little wonder that Newport was far from a pre-season favorite. In what has seemed to be the rule in recent years, rather than the exception as of a decade ago, Newport News found itself an underdog, while arch-rival Hampton was expected to achieve no less than the state champion- ship. To many a 6—12 or 7—11 prediction was a realistic figure for the young Typhoon team. Playing up to full potential, the Old Gold and Blue basketball team fooled the skeptics. Even the “invin- cible” Crabbers tasted defeat against the Big Blue, as did every other team in the district. No opponent conquered the mighty Typhoon without later falling to Newport’s wrath. For an underdog team in the district, Newport News’ astonishing 14—5 overall record was a positive accomplishment. This record, along with a 9—2 conference slate, earned the Typhoons a second place spot in the final district standings.

The Typhoon gained an easy vicotry over Warwick High a scant two weeks after the gridiron loss on Turkey Day. This game began a predicted losing season. Although falling in the next two encounters, NNHS lost by slim margins to two highly rated teams. The 1-2 record the Typhoon then possessed was hardly the basis for optimism. Nevertheless, a deter- mined team romped over its next nine opponents, leaving virtually every district team in its wake. Then came a seemingly impossible loss to Denbigh. The Typhoon proved this was an upset in its remaining five games by falling only to eventual state champion Hampton. However, this loss was avenged in the regular season finale with a well-deserved triple overtime victory. Seeded a strong second, the Typhoon entered the district tournament only to lose a stunning upset to the seventh place team. This unfortunate loss ended a fine season in which Newport News defeated every Peninsula district team at least once and never lost a game by more than nine points. 103 Typhoon Takes State I -A Indoor Title CROSS COUNTRY SCOREBOARD NN OPPONENT 22 ... .

These are cross country and indoor track. The boys on these teams practice daily with all of the physical exertion of football and basketball players. When the indoor track team journeyed to Lexing- ton after an undefeated regular season, Doug Dickin- son turned the State Group 1-A indoor track and field championships into his personal playground. The super-senior Typhoon set two records, tied another, won four events, and placed second in two others. This total, 32 points, was almost double runner-up Wilson High School’s 17 points. The Typhoon’s winning total was a substantial 44 points. While Doug Dickinson was dazzling numerous college coaches, other Typhoons were also scoring. Bob Kanney and Irwin Porter took third and fourth places, respectively, in the shot put. George Whitaker captured third in the long jump, Irvin Lyerly ran to a third place in the two miles, and John Whitcomb vaulted to fifth place in his specialty. Romping to its eighth win in the past nine years, Newport News offered a preview of the outdoor track season to come.

In the larger meets Newport News’ Doug Dicker- son continued his dominance. In the Colonial Relays he took three firsts and a second. The outstanding Typhoon turned in an even finer performance to lead the team to its 27th win of the Tidewater meet. In the Southern Interscholastic Championships in Knox- ville, Tennessee, Doug continued in his usual out- standing performance by scoring 30 points. The District meet saw the best teams on the Pininsula try to beat Newport News. Critics gave the Typhoons a poor chance of winning this all-important meet. The expected downfall never appeared and the team eased through the district and regional meets. After the victories in the District and Regional the Typhoons went into the state meet as favorites. The team easily won with 42 points. Doug led the way breaking 3 state records and scoring 28 points. Irving Leverly won a crowded two mile race and John Whitcomb came through with a pole vault of 14 feet. OUTDOOR TRACK SCOREBOARD N.N. 106 . . . . . James Blair Opponent 25 114 . . . . .

With many lettermen returning to key positions, fans and players alike were optimis- tic about the team’s chances in winning regional and state playoffs. This optimism was justified since the team was under the excellent leadership of head Coach Harlan Hott and assistant Coach Donnie White. Typhoons soon learned the caliber of their team, for the hardest games on the baseball schedule were clumped at the beginning of the season. Strong Kecoughtan was the Typhoon ' s first op- ponent, and preseason predictions were fulfilled as Newport scalped the Warriors 4-2. Going into the sixth inning against Carver, the Big Blue led 4-0, and another victory seemed in the making. In the final two innings, however, the Trojans scored eleven runs to stage a stunning upset. In the next encounter, NNHS routed Denbigh to bring its slate above the .500 mark with a 2-1 record. Although a non-conference encounter, Ferguson’s game with Newport News attracted the league’s atten- tion as the Typhoon staged a 5-0 shutout. The good showings made up to this point made the outlook for the season promising.

One was a game with arch-rival Hampton, who was gunning for a win over the Newport nine. In a hard fought battle, Newport triumphed with a 2-0 shutout. Meeting the York Falcons in a league encounter brought the NNHS squad a 10-1 victory as a prelude to a conference game with league-leading Warwick. The Farmers suffered a 4-0 shellacking. Huntington, Hampton, and Bethel were the next schools to fall in the Typhoon ' s wake. These victories were followed by a 3-0 shutout over Ferguson. Warwick and NNHS vied next, with all eyes upon them. Despite a six-run flurry in the sixth inning, NNHS fell 8-7. Following this came a close loss to the Kecoughtan Warriors. Entering the season’s home stretch, Newport de- molished James Blair 14-0 and rounded out its record with victories over York and Pembroke, coupled with a district loss by Warwick, gave the mighty Blue and Gold baseball team the Peninsula district crown and a trip to the Eastern Regional tournament. r w 4 S.

Hampton 56 112 Junior Varsity Ends With 13-5 Record Led by Coach Craig Glasheen, the 1968-69 New- port News J.V. basketball team compiled another winning record. The Baby Blue’s 13-5 overall and 8-3 conference slates were good enough for a second place tie in the final district standings. Kecoughtan, the other second rate school, fell to the Breeze twice during the eighteen game basketball season. This year’s J.V. team consisted of thirteen players at the opening of the year. By the end of first semester, however, two of the boys, both starters, had been lost, due to grades. This was a definite loss to the team for it meant considerably less bench strength for future contests. Feeling this depletion of manpower, the Baby Blue lost three ,of their seven second semester games, while losing only two out of eleven while at full strength. A strong point on this year’s J.V. squad was defense; opponents averaged a mere 45 points per game, the second lowest total in the entire district. Handlinking the bulk of the scoring this year were Eddie Morris with 14.4 points per game, sixth highest on the Peninsula, and Eddie Hester who averaged 10.4 points. A great future of varsity action lies ahead for these determined, goal-thinking players. f the expert advice which helped lead the Breeze to a 13-5 record. J.V. team, front row: B. Murphy, E.

Baseball and Football Teams Persevere Probably the two most dedicated groups of boys in Newport News High School are the JV football and the JV baseball teams. They certainly do not play for any personal glory, for no newspaper sports reporters cover their games and no cameramen are there to catch that pinpoint touchdown pass or that brilliant steal on home. Their motivation must be a keen sense of dedication and a strong desire to play, virtues that augment wins and assuage losses. Although fifty-six underclassmen went out for the J.V. football team, only four returned from last year’s district championship team; this inexperience made Coach Jim LoFrese and assistant Coach Craig Glasheen hard pressed to produce another titalist. Led by Coaches Tom Marvin and Craig Glasheen, the J.V. football team was composed of only twenty members. Although the Baby Blue suffered defeat, a never-say-die attitude was never lacking. G.

Can I have a ride to practice?” This shout added to the noisy confusion and frantic rush created in the girl’s dressing room twice a week during hockey season. These afternoons, the fourteen girls on the team hurried to dress and get down to Jackson field for practice, going by foot or by car. Girls selected as team members had to sacrifice their characteristic femininity while playing hockey. Neither bad weather, bruised shins, nor minor injuries dimmed the spirit of the team as they faced each game with optimism and determination. After all, who cared about all these misfortunes when your team had rung up another victory? HOCKEY SCOREBOARD N.N. 1 . . . . York 1 0 . . . . Hampton Roads 8 2 . . . . Warwick 2 3 . . . .

Under Mrs. Virginia Masters, the girls made full use of the balance beam, uneven parallel bars, horse and free exercise. While the advanced girls were given the opportunity to make up their own routines, beginners were given compulsory routines to learn. At the regional meet on March 15, five girls represented NNHS. Although none of the five girls placed at the regional meet, their grace and beauty in gymnastics are undisputed. Girls volleyball this year was undertaken with all the spunk and determination of professionals. From the very first game to the very last, the girls played as a team, uniting their abilities into one mighty effort. Endeavoring to make the team a strong one, Miss Ann Parker worked unceasingly instructing the girls in volleyball skills. Familiarities such as “OK, girls, rotate” or “net ball” could be heard ringing throughout the halls as the girls practiced in the afternoons. Never was a complaint heard from the girls. If they had to practice late, they simply smiled and redoubled their efforts. A fighting team, the girls proved “Newport is almighty.” J. Easmeil leaps into the air in an effort to spike the volleyball over the net into her opponent’s court as teammates wait to lend support. 119 Cheerleaders Exemplify Typhoon Spirit “Give me a T . . . What have you got? Typoone!” This was the familiar sound heard whenever the cheerleaders of Newport News High School got together. Known as the driving force that promoted enthusiasm and fair play, the cheerleaders worked constantly to make sure the spirit of the students and the morale of the players was kept high. From the football field to the Julie Conn Gym, to the auditorium, they could be heard encouraging the team on to victory. Being a cheerleader sounds like fun, but a lot of responsibility accompanies the fun. Regular meetings were held to practice and improve cheers, as well as to learn new ones. They were responsible for all the pep assemblies; they spent many hours creating ideas for skits. At all times, the cheerleaders had to exemplify the spirit and enthusiasm they tried to arouse in others. Not only did they encourage school spirit, but perhaps more important, good sportsman- ship. They were proud of the players no matter what, greeting them with a smile at a win and with a “We’ll get them next time” at a loss. Newport News High School had good reason to be proud of its cheerleaders— the girls who provided the igniting spark of school spirit. Head Anita Gore shows Typhoon spirit.

Who was always encouraging people to come and support the J.V. teams? Why, the J.V. cheerleaders, of course. The varsity’s “little sisters,” the J.V.s, cheered the teams on to victory or helped them swallow the bitter pill of defeat. Throughout the year these girls were the core of energy that enabled the J.V. team to strive just a little harder or go just a little farther. They did not let the responsibilities of keeping the morale and spirit of the student body high rest on the shoulders of the Varsity cheerleaders, but were always there lending a helping hand when- ever needed by their big sisters. Even after football and basketball, the cheerleaders remained an active part of the J.V. teams, promoting a feeling of pride. The J.V. cheerleaders proved that cheering isn’t an easy job. Not only did they faithfully attend meetings held two days a week in the summer and every Wednesday during the school year, but they also participated in assemblies and cheered for the games. Navy blue pants jumpers monogrammed in yellow were added to the J.V. cheerleaders’ wardrobe this year. The girls sewed the new outfits themselves and complemented them with yellow jerseys and kn ee- socks. J. V. cheerleaders were: Debbie Hooton, Janet Sandler, Pam Adcock, Head Debbie Laws, Lynne Scott, Sheryl Fineman, and Doris Gore. 123 People Involved In Classes Being one of thirteen hundred Finding yourself confronted With the need to fit in and desire to stand out.

Term papers are a real drag” ... “I was accepted!” . . . “Oh, 1 can’t believe it’s our last game” . . . “Has he asked you to the Prom yet?” . . . “We only have two weeks, four days, and ten hours until Graduation!” Senior sounds ’69. They echoed through the halls of Newport News High School as the “Mighty Class of 1969” accepted its Seniorhood. Each Senior inherited a world which was soon discovered to be a compound of the happy and the sad, rising to peaks of intense excitement and pride, then falling to lows of boredom and dissatis- faction. Moods varied, attitudes changed, and people working with each other gained maturity while developing individual personalities. It was decided that the executive board would be enlarged to include not only officers and committee heads but also homeroom representatives. Pennants, calling cards, announcements, pins, and keys were ordered. Seniors sponsored the Microphonies game as well as several dances and car washes. Shakers and stationery sales topped off the year’s projects. Mrs. Thomas, class sponsor, explains Robert’s Rules of Order to Debbie Nancy Webb, treasurer, and Jane Schweida, secretary, count Pierce, vice-president of the class. money collected for senior class dues. 160 Carolyn Sue A bbott Make-up Staff Head; V.

Elevators carried couples up to the beautiful Virginia Room of the luxurious Chamberlin Hotel. A trellis of roses made by class members arched over the entrance to the gay room. To carry out the Prom theme, Night of 1 Vine and Roses, center pieces of roses, ivy, and wine bottles were placed on the tables which lined the walls and on the refreshment tables. There was much to see and do at the Prom. Some couples danced to the music of Bob Marshall and the Crystals while others enjoyed friendly conversation over delicious refreshments. Many people enjoyed the beautiful waterfront view. The pier, the pools, the gazebo, and a full moon provided a romantic touch to the perfect setting for a perfect night. Highlighting the evening was a short program prepared by committee heads, Doug Dickinson, Barbara Dye, Anita Gore, and Becky Pierce. The Hall of Fame was presented and Mrs. Thomas, class spon- sor, was given a bouquet of yellow roses. King and queen of the Prom, Bobby and Jane Martin, were announced by Mr. James Wilson and crowned by Mr. John Caywood. Trumpets blare, drums beat, guitars twang, and a piano pounds as fabulous Donnie Gribble and his date, Sue Smith, are captured exchanging special 186 Senior Class Night Result of Hard Work It all began with a committee sign-up, meetings during homeroom, and tryouts. Class Night was in the making. Once the theme was decided upon, Frank Vretos, Mary Kay Massey, Robin Chalkley, and Sherry Cain. Class Night directors, began working out the details of the production. Programs were pre- pared, typed, and sent to the printer. Yellow roses were ordered so that each, senior girl could carry a class flower during the processional. A week before the big night, rehearsals were held every night. Stage crew workers and Mrs. Thomas aided the directors and cast in ironing out last minute problems. On June fifth, at eight o’clock, the processional began into the auditorium as the band played " Pomp and Circumstance.” Following the welcome, class musicians Cathy Jones and Diane Earls performed. Giftorian Betty Clark presented a portable TV to the school and a fifty dollar check for the infirmary. Two surprise gifts, a coat closet for Mr. Caywood, principal, and a silver tray for Mrs. Thomas, class sponsor, were presented. The transfer of cap and gown was then performed. The Anchor dedication was revealed and the first part of the program was concluded by the singing of the class song. Diane Earls, class vocalist, sings “You’ll Never Walk Alone” accompanied by Mr. Caywood is the surprised recipient of Anchor dedication. Far Right: Jeffrey Fox wails soul music for the Chocolate and Vanilla Soda Band, negro and white musicians. Solemnizing the transfer of cap and gown are L. Grizzle and B.

This class night production, adapted from Edgar Lee Masters’ Spoon River Anthology was a collection of original “anthologies” by individual class members, based on their personal memories of high school life. In the prologue, a lone figure wearing a graduation robe performed a brief monologue saying, “Where is the Class of ’69?” He described them poetically, then approaching a huge yearbook, declared solemnly “All, all, are sleeping in the book. But memories, like spirits, can be awakened by the mere turning of a page.” (Blackout.) Through a series of skits and monologues, awakened seniors expounded on a variety of topics. In the finale, all of the assembled spirits shouted their individual parts at once, creating an uproar. Then a robed figure broke through and flung his arms into the air. The spirits froze as the curtain fell. Talent was presented separately in the program this year. A wide variety of talent w as displayed. Following the talent, the cast and audience were led in singing the Alma Mater by the senior cheerleaders. A reception, given by the P.T.A. in the cafeteria, A take-off on “Dirty Work at the Crossroads” is enacted by several seniors. followed the Class Night program. The cast of James River Anthology assembled on stage and were led by Mrs. Carter in singing the class song and Alma Mater. 191 Graduation Exercises Held June Fifteenth On Sunday, June fifteenth, nineteen hundred and sixty-nine, two hundred and eight graduating seniors of Newport News High School entered the Julie Conn Gymnasium to the tune of “Pomp and Circum- stance. " Faculty members, gowned in the colors of their Alma Maters, led the processional. Following the faculty was the Class of Sixty -nine. The girls wore white gowns and the boys wore navy blue. Tassels swinging, they entered proudly and remained standing in their places throughout the ceremony. After class president Lee Grizzle gave the Invoca- tion, the chorus rendered “No Man Is An Island.” The speeches were begun by Patricia Long, who delivered the salutatory. She was followed by the two class speakers, D. J. Parsons, who was elected by his classmates, and Gary Hankins, who was chosen by the faculty. Concluding the speeches was John Whitcomb who gave the valedictory. Preceding the presentation of diplomas, selections from Camelot were rendered by the Typhoon band. Finally, that once-in-lifetime moment became a reality and the diplomas were presented. Then all heads bowed as Debbie Pierce gave the benediction. A triumphant recessional concluded the exercises. Sue Hargadon accepts a coveted certificate of graduation from Mr. Caywood. ,,,,,,, " " " I Gary Hankins, faculty speaker, emphasizes one’s aloneness. D. J. Parsons, class speaker, challenges his listeners “to communicate.” 192 1 93 Listening to the oratory of Pat Long, Salu ta torian, the Class of 1 969 finalizes five years of effort with impressive eommeneernent exercise. Relaxed and informal as they endure a hot, tiring rehearsal, senior boys await their turn to receive their “diplomas.” Some honor graduates quietly listen to the class speakers as the commencement program moves toward its final moments. 194 Personal Moments Compose Commencement Behind all of the pomp and impressive ceremony of graduation, there was another, more personal side to this big occasion. The actual ceremony lasted only a little over an hour, but much more time was consumed by rehearsing, anticipating, dreading, hoping, and preparing for the actual event. Gowns were given out, neatly boxed and ready to be hung in the two hundred and eight closets until the big day. Eager hands reached for gold tassels as excited faces beamed with pride. Giggles were heard as mortar boards were perched awkwardly upon graduates-to-be’s heads. Friday the thirteenth, the senior class arrived at the gym for rehearsal at nine o’clock in the morning. Bare feet, sunglasses, T-shirts, and even a few rollers were seen in the tired but excited crowd. After an instructive practice, a very hot senior class flocked to the cafeteria to a welcome reception given by the senior homeroom teachers. Finally June the fifteenth arrived, complete with ninety degree temperatures and thunder clouds. But nothing could take away from the specialness of this day. Suddenly it was all over. Five years of involve- ment ended with tears, smiles and goodbyes. Pat Long adjusts John Whitcomb’s collar before “the big moments” arrive. Graduate Diane Sandler embraces Mrs. Thomas as she realizes that her high school days have now become past memories. 195 People Involved In Advertisements Fair exchange A wide range Of goods and services.
