TABLE OF CONTENTS Superintendent ' s Message Dedication Administration and Faculty Principal ' s Message 12th Grade 11th Grade torch. 10th Grade 9th Grade 8th Grade Activities Advertisements 3 Through the ages, man has been grateful for the gift of life. Primitive as well as more advanced civil¬ izations have developed ways of worship, praising, and glorifying the Giver of Life. To the young and to the old, life is very precious. Since life is so precious, each being should be happy to spend his time of life wisely and productively. To do so requires insights, understandings, and preparation. While young, we need to make ourselves ready for a competent and useful middle and old age. The school can help, but the desire and drive have to come from within. There must be will power strong enough to avoid the waste of spending time on trivia. Each has to be able to choose the essentials and to forego the incidentals. People are equal only in the amount of time each has each day. As adulthood ap¬ proaches, good habits in the use of time should have been developed. And as we pass on to the golden days of our lives, these habits should be more firmly fixed so that at the end we can be truly and sweetly grateful for having lived. Superintendent 4 The Class of 1962 is honored to dedicate this edition of the Torch to Mr. J. Lester Parks, whom we love for his high principles and his kindly interest in his students. 5 Im hUnUUK ADMINISTRATION Mr. William F. Lawson, Jr. Superintendent of Northampton County Schools Mr. B.

Meek Band and Choir Mrs. Ellen P. Camden Art Mr. Carl R. Kane, Coach History Mrs. Nan M. Kane Physical Education Mr. George W. Young, Coach Physical Education Americans are blessed with a form of government, which, though imperfect in ap¬ plication is the world’s bulwark of freedom. In these turbulent times, our continued existence depends on an informed populace, fiercely armed with the unalterable convic¬ tion that democracy is worth preserving. It is the aim of public education to impart the skills, attitudes, and abilities required in a free society. But these goals can not be accomplished solely by the schools. To be effective, the education of our youth must be a joint venture involving home and school. I firmly believe that such a spirit of cooperation exists in our community. May the ensuing years witness even closer cooperation and understanding. 8 12th GRADE 9 M CLASS OF 1962 if ?! 4 J 1 . ■ H wj rj t _ If - ! ' d y v " vj - U !

After losing their first 4 games, the Yellow Jackets came back strong after the Christmas holidays. One of these losses came on the eve of the losing of top scorer Vernon Bradford. Playing 9 of 14 conference games on the road was definitely a handicap, but the boys showed the desire to win and finished in a tie for 6th place in a field ol 15 games and on a toss of the coin was seeded 7th in the tournament. The late season success also included a first victory over ever-powerful Crisfield, Maryland, a team which had not lost a regular season game in three years until they came to Northampton gym on the night of Feb. 14, when they were dumped 62 to 54. The Crabbers, however, won their district title and the State Championship at College Park, Maryland. The District 1, Group 2 Tournament, was held on March 1st through 4th. The Jackets drew Virginia Beach in the first round and handily upset them by a score of 79 to 52. The next night the team was defeated by the number four team, Southampton, 53 to 36. The last night the Jackets played number two seeded Deep Creek for the third place. In a close game the Yellow Jackets prevailed and came home with their thrid place trophy. The trophy was even more significant with the victory of Prince George, representing our district, over all opponents at the state level and winning the State Group 2 Championship at Charlottesville. 58 1961-62 BASKETBALL TEAM Duke Matthews, Mel Doughty, Ronnie Crumb, Larry Underhill, Roy James, Paul Erslev, Bruce Soderstrom, Frank Scanlan, Jimmy West, Bobby Dunton, Gordon Mapp, Robert Newcomb. The Yellow Jackets started their 1961-1962 basketball season with a 39 to 36 victory over Poquoson and concluded one of their most successful seasons in their 5 year Group 2 history. This year ' s team boasted the best defensive record in the entire district and this fact enabled them to reach the district tournament played at Frederick College. Bobby Dunton and Paul Erslev co-cap- tained the Jackets and led them to their many victories of the campaign. Highlights of the season included two wins over their Maryland rivals from Crisfield. The Crabbers lost two games during regular season, both to Coach Young’s Yellow Jackets. The game in January marked the first time in eight years the Crabbers had lost on their home court. All members of the team performed well with Paul Erslev and Bruce Soderstrom leading in the rebound department while Bobby Dun¬ ton, Duke Matthews, Larry Underhill, Roy James and Gordon Mapp contributed to the team ' s suc¬ cess with their ball-handling and scoring. A number of sophomores saw action this season and will be expected to carry the burden next year since only two members of the team were juniors. The squad finished the season ranked in the top 10 in Tidewater and were looking forward to the tournament. 59 Coaches Young and Wyatt Co-captains Erslev and Dunton Underhill and James SCORE BOARD Soderstrom and Mapp Northampton 39 Poquoson 36 Northampton 51 James Blair 45 Northampton 39 Gloucester 28 Northampton 40 Virginia Beach 58 Northampton 40 Chincoteague 41 Northampton 49 Crisfield 40 Northampton 39 James Blair 38 Northampton 39 York 41 Northampton 47 Va.

TOP ROW - Jimmy Partin, Mgr.; Jerry Phillips; Coach Young; Michael James; Frank Hill, Mgr. The 1961 Yellow Jacket baseball team was a most successful one. The Jackets, behind pitch¬ ing of ace righthander Billy Hill and south paw David Doughty, completed their sixth consecutive winning season, while winning the Eastern Shore Championship for the second consecutive year, and were undefeated in District I, Group 2. Overall, the team won 11 and lost 1, with 3 other games being cancelled due to inclement weather. The only loss came at the hands of Cape Charles under lights as the result of 2 unearned runs, giving the Indians a 2 to 1 victory in the 8th inning. Our best game of the season was with Virginia Beach. The Jackets played erroless ball while pushing across 2 runs on 5 hits as Billy Hill officially faced 21 batters in 7 innings, giving up no hits. Terrific defensive plays by Donnie Ashby, Bobby Dunton, and Eddie Sayers helped preserve the " No-Hitter " . David Doughty also turned in a " No-Hit " performance vs Central earlier in the season, defeating them 1 to 0, one of his 5 shut-outs. This year for the first time a " Most Valuable Player Award " was presented the player who had accumulated the most points during the year based on a " Bonus and Fines” system. Sophomore Eddie Sayers won this award with 410 points, followed by Junior Donnie Ashby with 320 points. Sayers also won the team batting championship with a potent .424. This year ' s team was once again a young one with only one senior on the squad. Coach Young is looking forward to next year ' s turn out with enthusiasm. 64 Co-captains Dunton and Ashby Nice Work Boys! 1961 SCORES NHS 13 Chincoteague 5 NHS 1 Central 0 NHS 5 Va.
