DEDICATION We the members of the 1963 graduating class are proud to dedi¬ cate this edition of the Lighthouse to the members of the Bleacher Committee and those public- spirited citizens who made the Bleacher Project a reality. For the first time in the history of Northampton County High School we are able to watch our various sports from the stands. This was made possible by those persons who have worked so dili¬ gently in the last five years. We wish to express our sincere grati¬ tude for the great deed you have done for us. To say thanks for your past help and for any future help, we offer you THE LIGHTHOUSE! Senior Class PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE It has always been a pleasure for me to fulfill this obligation to each senior class, and with you there is no exception. It has been my good fortune to observe your development over a period of five years, and I offer a special commendation to those of you who this year take leave of us. I commend you on your splendid efforts during the last few years as you have worked under the guidance of your teachers. Your efforts have been very good, but far from perfect. So, I hope that you do not feel so self satisfied that you become complacent because this would be a tragedy. As you graduate and move along to assume your private lives, you will face the problem of adjusting to the new pattern of living presented by the Age of Automation. You must remember that our scientific development is merely the most recent im¬ portant step of the steady progress of mankind that is compelling him to become more human; for he must pay careful attention to the cooperation, education, and the wel¬ fare of society if he is to survive under the condition that the new challenges impose. This being true we are counting upon you to be an integral part of this new age. Congratulations and the best wishes to each of you for the future. W. H. Smith 2 ADMINISTRATION ADMINISTRATION MR. W.

On every side they are faced with increasingly complex social and economic patterns and widening occupational opportunities. With these changes have come greater em- phasis on individual differences and the development of programs which seek to give systematic aid to all students. Therefore we are trying to provide a program which will aid all students to make wise decisions and good adjustments. Through the Guidance Committee and staff members the following services are available to all students: Individual Inventory, Informational, Counseling, Placement, and Follow-Up. These services should assist each student in knowing himself as an individual and as a member of society; in making the most of his strengths and in correcting or compensating for his weaknesses that interfere with his progress; in learning about occupations so that he may intelligently plan and prepare for a career; in learning about educationaTopportunities available to him; and in discover¬ ing and developing creative and leisure interests. For a successful guidance program, we ask for the continued co-operation and participation of every member of the teaching staff, as well as the co-operation from the home, the community, and the students. The Guidance Committee, STANDING left to right: Mrs. L. U. Kornegay, Mr. F. W. Brickhouse, Mrs. A. B. Brown, and Mr. W. H. Smith. SEATED: Miss T. L. Manley and Mrs. I. J. Williams. 9 STUDENT COUNCIL This year the Student Council is proudly leading the student body through another year. This year we hope our achievements will be many. Our main objectives are: 1.

Mr. W. H. Smith, our principal divided us into five sections, A, B. C, D, and E. Our Homeroom teachers were Mrs. M. D. Cherry, Mr. V. Adair, Mr. K. Wright, Mrs. M. B. Collins and Mrs. E. U. Jones. During our freshman year, we were under the leadership of Mr. F. W. Brickhouse, Mrs. M. B. Collins, and Mr. E. Busch. We were represented in the Homecoming Activities by Joyce Richardson and Brenda Bailey. In September 1960, we entered Northampton as determined Sophomores with our minds wide awake for the future. Our advisors were Miss K. Y. Hayes, Mr. E. Busch, Jr., and Mr. F. W. Brickhouse. Our Homecoming representative was Mignon Holland. In September 1961, we entered school as Juniors, under the guidance of Mr. D. O. Polk, Mr. F. W. Brickhouse and Mrs. E. S. McCuller. We were represented in the Annual Homecoming Activities by Rachel Smith and Mary Fisher who was crowned Miss Homecoming. Again we returned to Northampton County High School, but with a different outlook on life, for finally we were " Dignified Seniors. " We were divided into three groups and were placed under the guidance of Mrs. S. Phifer, Mr. Odis Kornegay, and Mr. E. Busch, Jr. We were represented in the Home¬ coming Activities by Barbara Baker, who was the Runner-up for Miss Homecoming. We the members of the Senior Class of 1963, would like to express our deep gratitude to our parents, principal, and faculty who have worked so diligently with us to make our future a success. SENIOR CLASS PRAYER We thank thee Almighty God, for those things which were necessary in helping us obtain this our goal. We are most grateful for our Principal, Teachers, Parents and Friends, who have given us courage and inspiration throughout the years. OLord, as we leave this institute of learning, help us to seek knowledge, love and most of all an understanding which will help us meet this challenging world of tomorrow. Amen Joyce Richardson 24 SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY As the planets revolve and stay in orbit, let us stay with the class of " 63 " as they follow the Marina 11 which leads to their chosen professions. 1 see Sergeant Melvin Williams patrolling the base at Fort Devens. Guess who ' s on " K.P. " Yes, Alvin Bailey and James White. Sedrick Bailey can ' t understand why he and A. Fenderson have to be honor graduates to be on Herman Small ' s Pro Basketball Team. Here comes the mathematical geniuses, James Stanley and Joseph Baines. McHolley Ransome still doesn ' t understand how they found the quardratic formula. Virgil Press and Thomas Locator are now working for James Reid who owns one of the world ' s largest auto shops. James Powell assistant manager, has just seen the new design of the " 73 " Vircator. This car has tires that are guaranteed to keep moving, but they didn ' t say anything about the car. Emma Mitchell an interested customer has been trying to get to Mars in hers for 10 years. Let ' s have a look at Hollywood. Tonight starring at James Stratton ' s Opera House is Sharon Meecham and Patrica Scott, her accompanist. Purley Press is angry because they aren ' t starring his Guitar Band with Clarence " Drummer " Treherne. Brenda Bailey is now touring Andrea Downing ' s Private School for Little Lou and Joe. They are the children of the President, Joseph Beckett. Yes, you ' re right, Lucretia Griffin is the First Lady for ”73. " Now we are on the sixth floor of Barbara Wynder ' s Medical College. As I walk toward the operating room 1 see Dr. Alexander Hickman and his assistants, Maeozell Bright, Beatrice Collins, Eva Collins and Katie Jones. I also see that Dorothy James and Maragaret Sample are now Registered Nurses at the hos¬ pital. We have just seen Betty Burton in Paris, designing some of the world ' s most beautiful dresses for the " Emperor ' s house pet, a cocker spaniel. " The Ruler of Eutopia, Jeffery Turner, says there are three ways to do things; right way, the wrong way, and his way. The aristocratic Mary Sessoms has just returned from Germany after having a special formula made by her newly appointed Pharmacist Joyce Richardson. Her name is on the temporary obituary list. Mil¬ dred Sheppard, her housekeeper, warned her not to take the medicine. Rachel Smith and Carolyn Spady are really on their way. They have just put on the market a re¬ filling pen that ' s guaranteed not to run out. Barbara Stevens just purchased one, and want her lawyer, Edna Upshur to sue the company. The company ' s lawyer, Booker Wynder insist that in order to sue they have to sign their names with one of the pens. That ' s the trouble it won ' t write. I see Ollie Kates owner of a IBM School on " cloud 9.” They have a new inventor, Garfield Giddens who just invented a Garclock that ' s guaranteed to keep accuracy not time. Walter Barnes, a missile age lawyer with the assistance of Willie Mae Lee, has just won the case of, " People versus Marshall Fisher. " Fisher was found not guilty of lying. Willie Patterson, won a million dollars in the " Talkaton last night. " She set a record of talking for four months without pausing. Only last week Robert Matthews was appointed Cardinal by Pope Richard Johnson XVIIL of Rome. Our Lady of Good Hope Convent has received two nuns to its order, Edmonia Satchell and Barbara Collins. Thomas Moses and Freddie Beckett have perfected space men wing, you may now fly through the air at 800 miles per hour. Alvin Brown acted as test pilot and he hasn ' t been heard of since. Carla Elliott, Corrine Garrison and Lottie Resell are Performing miracles with their " Fountain of Youth Charm School, " it ' s the rage of the continent. Betty Nottingham already look 10 years younger. Charles Wescott and Harry Hines won the " Speedway 7002 race, the prizes were a mule, a space ship covered wagon, respectively. Robert Sample a member of the " You work I play " party is the youngest dictator of Burmas history. Johnny Williams, Elton Williams and Joseph Wynder are the 3 " W " cabinet members. The " Best Dressed Woman of 1973 " are Dorothy James, Corrine Gray, and Margaret Young. Can you believe it? Countess Ida Loffland is rumored to be seeking a divorce for Count Charles Mitchell. News in the field of medicine includes a pill to prevent dullnes by Dr. Irene Carter, the renowned psychologist. A drug to induce brilliance (you can be seen in the dark) by Dr. Bertha Holbrook. Nina Sample can now remain lighted in the dark with her new light bulb. It is believed that the three " Giddens " Clara, Ida and Della will soon release the latest record by Carole Scarborough. Barbara Baker has established the " Regain your figure school. " Her number one students are Elizabeth Bright, Corrine Garrison, Flora Burrows and Dottie White and Josephine Dean. These girls have been eating James Sample ' s and Albert Holden ' s new non-fat cookie. Shirley Baines, Bernice Mitchell, Rachel Smith and Rebecca Collins have invented a new make-up base that ' s guaranteed to make you look new over night. Goldie Upshur has finally landed Jackson Manley. They now own a 32 room mansion. Their servants are Mary Brown and Joan Williams. Mary Fisher has just been seen in another one of her flop movies, " Gone by Night. " The night is gone and all is at rest, and so I must close hoping every is at their best. 25 SENIOR CLASS WILL Barbara Stevens wills her ability to dance to Christine Peed.
