TAPORAPIAN -- 1963 -- FOREWORD » Today we wear the rose of youth, a season of enjoyment when we dream of attaining the Everests of our ambitions and a season of difficulty when we face insurmountable obstacles. This book contains the ingredients with which to relive many of the thrilling moments of our youth. As our high school years draw to a close, we look back upon these wonderful years as students of Tappahannock High School with many fond memo- ries. This annual, THE TAPORAPIAN, will serve as a reminder of our happy school years and will signify love for our Alma Mater. We, the annual staff, have tried to give an accurate account of the highlights of the past year. We hope we have included memories for each and everyone of you, and that you enjoy reading this annual as much as we have enjoyed compiling it. With the 1963 TAPORAPIAN we bring to Tappa- hannock High School its twenty -fifth yearbook and offer the students and faculty a portraiture of the school for the year 1962-1963. 2 3 4 What is THS? It ' s more than bricks and glass and wood and concrete. It ' s flesh and blood. It ' s a crowd of excited kids, scre am- ing, " Let ' s go, Warriors. " It ' s the reverence of heads bowed in prayer in Friday assem- blies. It ' s the PEOPLE. It ' s homework, outside reading, term papers, themes, math problems, and SCA elections. It ' s the absentee slips, " excuses, " and the principal ' s office. It ' s BOYS and GIRLS. It ' s the second string tackle wishing he could play; it ' s the band in their handsome uniforms. It ' s the biology student pouring over the microscope; it ' s the forward missing the free throw. It ' s the rushing, jostling lunch line; it ' s the making of a home-run in the last inning. It ' s decorating for the Junior-Senior Banquet; it ' s taking notes; it ' s flunking tests; it ' s a word of advice from the teacher. It ' s laughter and It ' s tears. It ' s the chemistry class concocting those weird smells on the second floor lab; it ' s the FFA boys sand- ing a cedar chest; it ' s the Home Ec girls baking a cake. It ' s the DEC A Club giving a demonstration; it ' s the typing class pounding out a speed test; it ' s the algebra pupils struggling with the binomial theorem. It ' s joy and it ' s disappointment. It ' s baccalaureate sermon and " Largo " and graduation night. It ' s the sudden shock that seizes a Senior when he realizes, " I shall not pass this way again ... " And it ' s strength -- underneath a veneer of activity -- strength of purpose in student and in teacher. It ' s more than building, more than teachers, more than students; it ' s living, breathing faith in tomorrow ' s promise. This is THS. 5 EDITOR’S NOTE This year the annual staff has tried to prepare for you the " biggest and best " TAPORAPIAN of all time. Having worked diligently to make this book possible, the staff hopes that the wide collection of pictures and reports will bring fond memories of the delightful school days in 1962-63. VVe have given special attention to the Seniors, to our faculty and school staff workers, to organizational and extracurricular activities, and to the teams, clubs, and students who won honors for our Alma Mater this year. As editor of the ' 63 TAPORAPIAN, 1 would like to express my gratitude to many people who have helped me, and made this annual possible. Without the group of earnest, industrious staff workers, this yearbook could never have met its goals, deadlines, and completions. To the teachers I give my thanks for their cooperation of days of interrupted classes. The cooperation of ad- vertisers, and purchasers, was greatly appreciated in financing this book. I also wish to thank Mr. Robertson, for his time and advice; Peggy Allen, Mr. Novak, and Mrs. DeShazo for their photography; and Roberta Novak, for her excellent work on the division pages. The experience and knowledge, that 1 have gained in editing the ' 63 TAPORAPIAN, are rewards that will follow me throughout my life. My only hope is that you will find this to be a book you will long cherish -- one which will make you happy, make you sad -- one which will bring you golden memories of days past.

Taliaferro, D. Taliaferro, Russell, Allen, Clanton. ASSISTANT EDITOR Frances Ware COPY EDITOR Betty Lee Walker iUSINESS MANAGER Mary Ann Dunn 7 Five years have passed since we first met. During this time you have been a guide and a helper to us. You have led us through hours in science labs where we pored over the puzzling mechanics of electric motors and learned the wonders of the microscopic world. Not only have you instilled in us the appreciation of scientific truths but also you have been an instructor for our athletic teams. You have taught us discipline, giving direction to the course of our lives. And lastly, you have patiently helped the staff compile this, the 1963 Taporapian. To you, Mr. Robertson, we express our deepest gratitude to a teacher who has made a lasting imprint on our lives. 8 ADMINISTRATORS Principal Mr. Henry Burruss Student Body and Class of ' 63, we congratulate you. You have time and again proved worthy of our confidence and trust. You are living in an age of marvels. Since you entered High School, man has flown faster than sound; he has launched the first space satellite; he has navigated space on several flights; he has gained new frontiers in medicine and peaceful uses of atomic power. We have been able, we hope, to help you in your struggle for growth and your race for perfection. When the time comes for you to be in the forefront and in posi- tions of leadership, we sincerely expect you to make as great or greater advances in science, health, ethics, and religion as those which we have observed during your high school career.

Spindle CLASS OF ’63 CLASS OFFICERS President: Frank Brooks Vice-President: Kay Courtney Secretary: Frances Hundley Treasurer: Mary Linda Loving Reporter: Roberta Novak Student Council: Alwyn Davis; Carolyn Baneford SEPTEMBER 1959 -- As eighth graders, we are the first class to be under the five year high school program. We have high aims for the coming years. SEPTEMBER 1960 -- We are now freshmen. As freshmen, we take a more active part in our school. Members of our class are on the cheering squad, football, and basket- ball teams. We take a part in our school government by being on the Student Coun- cil and in the S.C.A. Both teachers and students begin to expect great things from our class. SEPTEMBER 1961 --As sophomores, there is even more responsibility on our shoulders. We take on this responsibility and prove our ability. We have two sophomores as S.C.A. officers. On the National Honor Society, there are six sophomores. We undertake many projects to raise money for our Senior trip. SEPTEMBER 1962 -- We are Juniors. Due to the size of the Senior class, we do not have a prom. However, we take great pains in presenting a successful banquet. As in pre- vious years, we take an active part in the school and serve as an example to other students. SEPTEMBER 1963 -- Now we are Seniors. Through our years in school, we have served our school and our teachers. Working with the Juniors, we present a successful Prom - quet. Who will forget the trials of Senior play rehearsals or the exultation of a job well done? Finally, after much work, we go to New York. And then, June, 1961, Commencement -- the beginning of a new and strange life. 20 MARGARET VIVIAN ALLEN " Peggy " F.H.A. 1,2,3; DECA 4; Annual Staff 5; Chorus 3.

" The jam packed auditorium was filled with laughter and love from the lovable acting. Mrs. Spindle and her Seniors presented one of the best plays we can re- member. Whether novice or experienced in dramatics, each actor and actress interpreted his or her role extremely well. We have a feeling that we will be hearing expressions like " ... right under the Lonesome pine, " " Can if I wanta, but 1 don ' t wanta, " and " If you ain ' t the beatinest! " for days to come. " If you ain ' t the beatinest man what I ever seed! ” " Promise me you ' ll take good care of June, " Want me to ax her fer ya? " Hon.

STUDENT COOPERATIVE ASSOCIATION The S.C.A. of ' 62 - ' 63 has improved greatly. Being revised, this governmental or- ganization of the school is more active and worth while. It enhances leadership of many of the students and offers many positions for them to hold. Projects were decided at the beginning of the year by the newly elected executive committee. These projects were carried out in a most original manner. For example, a " Turn About Day " was or- ganized, and after much planning was carried out successfully. A " King Class " project was undertaken to create more school spirit. Classes received points for participation in activities, for appearance, attitude, and co-operation. The class with the most points received certain privileges at the end of each six weeks. At the end of the school year, one class was chosen to receive the hon or of being " King Class. " The community gave us good publicity on all of the projects. Due to the newly formed Publicity Committee, the school and community was well informed and able to be more active in the school events. A most outstanding accomplishment was that of getting a hundred per cent in the S.C.A. membership. The S.C.A. Executive Committee feels the school has benefitted greatly by the re-organization of the S.C.A. The sponsor, Mr. Jones, has helped the S.C.A. in planning the goals of the S.C.A. and in carrying out these goals. 46 " Ratweek " --a new addition " Turnabout Day " -- when the TEACHERS gave the apples! 1 -- eighth grader ' s fate!

" 47 STUDENT COUNCIL Tlie Student Council, the governing body of the students, is composed of repre- sentatives from each class and each S.C.A. committee. Its objective is to pass rules which will make Tappahannock High a better school for all who attend it. This year, the Student Council has done its best to fulfill this objective. HONOR COUNCIL In the 1962-63 school term Tappahannock High School established an honor code. Along with the code, the administration organized an honor council to try violations and inflict punishment when necessary. Tire Honor Council, for this year has tried to uphold the standards of Tappahannock High School in a manner in which both students and faculty can be proud. 48 President -- Judy Andrews Vice-president -- Adam Sichol Secretary -- Thresa Ann Hilton Treasurer -- Tommy Blackwell Reporter -- Henry Hundley Sponsor -- Mrs. Sutton JUNIOR STUDENT COOPERATIVE ASSOCIATION The Junior S.C.A. of Tappahannock High School made up of grades four through seven is an organization to provide opportunities for students to learn to be good leaders and active group members. It gives them experiences in taking responsibility for important work in the school and community and is a way of trying together the many different kinds of work, campaigns, and other activities within our school. 49 President: Kay Courtney Vice-President: Boots Barton Secretary -Treasurer: Mary Carter Ransone Members from left to right: Dina Lane, Laura Ann Spindle, Gary Carlton, Kerry Sue Powell, Frank Brooks, Betty Lee Walker, Bryan Taliaferro, Byrd Kriete, Wanda Watts. NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY Membership in the National Honor Society represents a high school student ' s highest achievement in scholarship, character, leadership, and service. Members are elected on the basis of individual merit by a committee of the faculty, from the junior and senior classes. At various times during the school year, new members are tapped into the organization. 50 CHORUS Would you like to have a course in educational entertainment? Would you like to look back and discover how many wonderful and useful things you have learned about music? Would you like to enter- tain others and show them how much you have learned and how well you apply your knowledge? And would you like to be a part of a team that is working toward one goal -- to share with others the joy, and beauty of music. The chorus of 1963 has passed the course and met the goal. And they hope others have enjoyed listening to the chorus as much as they, themselves, have enjoyed learning and presenting the songs. 51 BAND The Tappahannock High School Band under the able leadership of Mr. Louis B. Hamada has received great honors. Organized in September, I960, this young band has shown initiative and skill. Three years ago we had no band, no music room, no uniforms, and no instructor. Today we have a good uniformed band, a robed chorus, a splendid music room, and many instruments for use by the pupils due largely to the effort of Mr. Hamada and the support of the community. In the future the Tappahanno.ck High School Band shall work to attain higher goals and better standards of excellence. This year our band was chosen to be in the annual " First Chairs of America " an honor given to only a few bands. 52 Our Director Mr, Hamada . . . Drum Major -- Nancy Hammond MAJORETTES: P.

CHEERLEADERS ocTT 5 c o 64 FOOTBALL 1962 A winning season seemed closer than ever as the Warrior squad started to shape up. With ten lettermen, a new offensive attack, and strong determination to play football, the Warriors rang up a total of five wins, and two heartbreaking losses, and one tie. Tappahannock ' s starting unit saw at end John Haile and Peel Dillard who took over for injured Ranny Ferry; Frank Brooks and John Rennolds at tackle; Curtis Elbourn and Stuart Woodland at guard; Jack Kirk at center. The first string backfield had Peyton Barton at quarterback; Bryan Taliaferro and Jimmy Haile at half- back; Jimmy Beazley at fullback. Carroll Elbourne and Dennis Rod- gers provided some key plays on defense. Mickey Davis showed his versatility by playing at four different spots. The team on both offense and defense worked extremely well as a unit. Halfbacks Taliaferro and Haile led the scoring with 50 and 25 points respectively. Seven players will be lost to the team next year through graduation or ineligibility, but there will be plenty of talent and experience left for next year ' s team. Dedicating time and energy unselfishly, the individual player, under the able leadership of co -captains Woodland and Taliaferro and the proficient coaching of Mr. Ashton and Mr. Robertson, accounted for the successful 1962 football season. 65 LEFT TO RIGHT, BOTTOM ROW: S.

BASKETBALL The 1962-63 basketball season was not a championship one for the Warriors, but it produced its share of surprises, thrills, and rewards. While winning only one of their first four games, they came back well in the second half of the season, winning four of their last six. The victory over Northumberland caused a three-way tie between the Warriors, Northumberland, and King George for the fourth place tourna- ment spot. This was a young Warrior squad, the starting line-up at times composed of Juniors, Jimmy Haile and Tommy Taliaferro, Sophomores, Ranny Ferry and John Christopher, and Freshman Peyton Barton, Seniors, Johnny Rennolds, Alwyn Davis, and Rob Lowery, and Junior Melvin Rich did most of the sub duty. Rennolds was a starter for part of the season when an injury to Jimmy Haile, the only returning starter, kept him out for four games. Junior Watts, Allen Stevens, William Thompson, and Catesby Ware completed the squad. Individually, Ranny Ferry led the team in points with 142 and 103 rebounds. Jimmy Haile led in scoring average, 15.5, an infield goal and free throw percentage. The late season showing of the squad was most rewarding and it is hoped they will continue to develop and be a contender next year. 68 Get That Rebound , . . Get It ! Swoop! And Another Basket! ! !

GIRLS’ BASKETBALL Having lost only two games in a seven game schedule, the Tappahannock girls entered the District Tournament. Winning the first game from Caroline, the Warriors were only one game from the Championship trophy. However, Colonial Beach won that game and the trophy. Even though this was a disappointment, the girls brought home a beautiful trophy for placing second in the district. The outstanding playing and sportsmanship displayed throughout the games will always be remembered. This year the team is losing two of its valuable members, Dana Dickinson and Boots Barton, both of whom have played for four years. Forwards of the team were Dana Dickinson, Dina Lane, and Arlene Luttrell; guards were Boots Barton, Byrd Kriete, and Kerry Sue Powell; reserves were Barbara Hicks, Frances Ware, Pat Balderson, Ann Lee Hite, Barbara Eanes, Margaret Ann Fogg, Caro- lyn Hammond, Nancy Hammond, and Mary Carter Ransone. It would be impossible to say who was outstanding, for the achievements of their success lay in the fine co-operation of the team as a whole. Because of the fine example this year ' s team set, T.H.S. hopes that next year ' s team will be just as good, if not better. 70 Colonial Beach Caroline »-- Rappahannock Lancaster C. T. Smith W. L.

Chalk up two more points! 71 BOYS’ BASEBALL The T.H.S. baseball team entered the 1963 season with high hopes as they had eight of 1962 ' s starting line-up. The WARRIORS came up to expectations as they took easy wins over Colonial Beach, King George, Rappahannock, Lancaster, and W L along with a close game at Caroline. Sporting a 5-0 record, the WARRIORS were upset by C. T. Smith. Tappahannock, leading the league, played Northumber- land and took a heart-breaking loss which left District F in a three-way tie for first place. Rob Lowery led all batters with a .444 average followed by Peyton Barton, with a .385. The fielding showed typical championship style. Next year ' s baseball team looks promising with only three seniors, Rob Lowery, A1 w)ti Davis, and Bryan Taliaferro, missing from the team. SCORES T.H.S.

To win, to work hard to obtain the skill that is necessary to win, to display good sports- manship at all times, and to work together for the good of the whole team, were the goals, and T.H.S. met all of them. She rose victori- ously over every game except the W L game (then only losing by one point). The team won a trophy, for the season ended with T.H.S. in a three way tie for first place. This would not have been possible if it had not been for the excellent playing of: catcher, Nancy Ham- mond; pitcher, Kerry Sue Powell; first, second and third basemen, Cathy Medlin, Byrd Kriete, and Faye Delano; short stop, Arlene Lut- trell; right fielder, Betty Delano, and Barbara Hicks (who played right or left field). Of course the hard work of Sally Akers, Betty Mae Crowe, and Barbara Passagaluppi cannot go without mention or ap- preciation for ALL of the team members made the T.H.S. softball team a great success!

Tommy Taliaferro fourth in 220 dash and Jimmy Beazley third in shot. Our Relay Team also came in fourth. Johnny Rennolds and Tommy Taliaferro were eligable for state competition.

In the State Conservation Essay Contest, Tappahannock produced a third place winner, Frances Ware, and six other honorable mentions. Wanda Watts and Barbara Burruss won first place in Poetry and Essays respectively in the State Forensic Contest.

Members of the Senior and Junior classes joined together to divide the work and expense of sponsoring the event. Promquet was held on the fifteenth of March. Because this was the " Ides of March, " a Roman theme was chosen. Decorations were done in brilliant Roman colors of purple and gold. After the banquet, the tables were moved out, and the gaily dressed couples danced to the music of the Road Runners. Everyone agreed that it was a most suc- cessful occasion. Our Roman chariot rider.
