% TAPORAPIAN Tappahannock High School Tappahannock, Virginia 1965 Let the Word Go Forth Within your hands you hold a collection of the most cherished moments of 1964-65. In years to come, each one of you will view this annual and recall the events and people comprising this col- lection. Each picture and each word was selected to remind you of moments filled with laugliter, hours filled with knowledge, days filled witli achievement, and months filled with companionship. Time passes quickly. It is impossible to remember each moment. And therefore the Taporapian Staff has tried its best to compile for you these glimpses of yesterday and we hope they will present for you a memorable and valuable view of THS as it was in 1964-65.

ASSISTANT EDITOR BUSINESS MANAGER Frances Ware 4 Saralr Clanton In the years to come as you open to the pages of your Taporapian, it is the hope of the 1965 annual staff that it will be as if you were reopening lie doors to Tappahannock High School and a past way of life. A way of life filled with deep friendships, impressionable experiences, and great anticipations. The purpose of this annual and the ultimate intention of its staff is to provide each high school student with a valuable hallmark. Hopefully, the work of your Taporapian will be immeasurable, and the memories it provides everlasting. As you turn the pages, may you recall the winning teams, the plays, the classmates, and the teachers. May laughters and sorrows be unrolled in the pages recalling the many happenings. The annual staff would like to congratulate the Class of ' 65 and thank them for their contribution to Tappahannock and the Taporapian. May they always have a place in their heart for their school, as they most certainly will have a great part in the tradition at Tappahannock. The remaining students have an obligation, not only to students of the past, but to those of the future, an obligation to uphold the standards and traditions of T.H.S In conclusion, the staff wants to wish the students of the present, as well as those of the past, the greatest height of success in en- countering the challenges of tomorrow, and pray that each tackles them with the same vigor, strength, drive, and dedication which makes Tappahannock High a school looked upon with intense pride. EDITOR 5 Mr. Woolford, you have been with the faculty only two years, but the help and guidance you have given us can not be measured. You have set an example for all of us to follow. You are devoted to your profession, you have a pleasing disposition, an excellent sense of humor, and you cause the students to feel they are truly in- dividuals by treating them with respect. We feel you are a successful teacher. You have contributed not only your knowledge of the sciences and mathematics, but also your athletic ability on the basketball court and softball field during tliose unforgettable student -faculty games. We can not repay you for all the knowledge, rmderstanding, and guidance you have given us. But we can give you this -- the dedication of all that we cherish here at THS. 6 ADMINISTRATION ' esta-i (L A, ,J| Principal’s Message We wish you every success. Remember nearly everything in life costs you something in effort, time, or money. Be sure you do not pay too high a price for fun, pleasure, popularity or fame, but also be sure you pay high enough price for learning, success, service to one ' s fellow man or for character. You have shown marked success along this line of development. May you continue to do so. 8 School Board Passes Federal Aid Bill Clerk: Mrs. Burnley Kirk; Central District: Mr. Archie Sutton, Chair- man; Rappahannock District: Mr. John Broaddus; Occupacia District: Mr. Spottswocd Taliaferro; and Superintendent: Mr. Eldon W.

" SENIOR, " Now isn ' t that a marvelous word? " S " is for our Superiority complex. After all, we have been here longer than any other students. " E " is for Energetic. You have to admit we seniors are always in the middle of everything. " N " is for our Non-chalant, subtle, casual way of trying to run the school. " 1 " is for the Indispensable advice we freely give to all underclassmen. " O " is for our Omniscient attitude towards any question which might occur. " R " is for the Ridiculous manner in which we behave. We have just discovered the ecstasy of being able to " direct " the 8th graders and elementary students. We have grown above the heads of our teachers, with the exception of Mr. Gladding, of course, and we continually have told the underclassmen that we are perfect in each respect. In fact, we have said this so often that we nearly believe it ourselves. Our world is a unique world. It is a world that only a senior could know. For it is the last year, and each senior intends to make it his best. At the beginning of the year, each senior works to obtain a high grade for the first semester. This is done to help build a feeling of security and to show the college that the student is capable of doing college work and should be accepted. By March the seniors who have not heard from their college have become nervous wrecks. Of course during this nerve -shattering experience the underclassmen offered their words of encouragement. By April the seniors have dispensed with their tranquilizers and are back to " normal. " At this stage of the game, each senior attemps to learn just how much he can get away with, to obtain the best possible grades with the least possible work, to make the lives of the underclassmen absolutely unbearable, to drive the teachers insane, and to make the Class of ' 65 an unforgettable one. But when the year is over, we will exchange- our " Senior " title for that of " Graduate. " We will exchange our title but will never exchange our feeling of friendship for the students of THS and our feeling of respect for the teachers who have given us their all. 18 Leslie Allen Akers " Leslie " Safety Patrol 1,2 D, E, 3; Track 3; Dramatics 5.

Homecoming, Turn-About Day Highlight SC A The students of Tappahannock Higlr School are proud of their opportunity to choose the officers of their government -- The Student Cooperative Association. These five students represented tlie Executive Com- mittee for the 1964-65 term. As previous officers have done, they realized their goals and immediately began to work toward achieving tliem and making the 1964-65 SCA the best yet! The Executive Committee wanted everyone to feel he was actually a part of his government and to be- come aware of the benefits of a working SCA. Some outstanding projects this year were the Honor Card, the Card Dance, Turn-about Day, Mock Elections, Rat Week, and the Homecoming weekend. Mr. Gladding, our sponsor, offered a great deal of help on dances and other activities. His driving for perfection exerted much influence on the organization. For his humor and willingness, the officers of the 1964-65 SCA would like to take this opportunity to thank him. Following the tradition of former officers, the leaders of the 1964-65 Student Cooperative Association have tried to make the Tappahannock High School student government the most effective yet!

Its purpose is to promote these qualities throughout the school and community. This year, delegates from Tappahannock High School attended the first NHS convention for this area. Un- fortunately, it was too late to put into practice many of the ideas which they got there. However, if, next year, they follow these suggestions, the Honor Society should be a much more active organization at THS. The future goal of ouj National Honor Society is not to be solely an honor organization, but to strive to become a more helpful working body in the school.

Mr. Trewett has been an able leader and has accomplished much in the way of establishing a really good band. Let ' s hope that the bands in the future will be as well organized and strong as this one. Director: Mr. Trewett 55 Chorus Provides Musical Harmony This year the chorus, under the direction of Mr. John Sheppard Trevette has been one of the most outstanding that Tappahannock High School has ever had. Throughout the entire school year, it has given many enjoyable concerts. With the superb direc- tion and a variation of songs to sing, the chorus has made singing more entertaining. Because of this our chorus has been a great asset and help to our school and community. While Director Leads 56 Entire Club Attends Fall Rally At Washington and Lee High School.

The recipients are Gene Baughn and an eighth grader who will be decided on in June. The FFA is an intra-cuxricular activity having its origin and root in a definite part of tire school curriculum -- vocational agriculture. The foundation upon which tire Future Farmers of America organization is built includes service, tlirift, scholarship, improved agriculture, organized recreation, citizenship and patriatism. The FFA is nonprofit, nonpolitical farm youtlr organization of voluntary membership de- signed to take its place along witlr otlier activities striving for the development of leadership, the building of a more permanent agriculture, and the improvement of country life.

Three Members Make All Stars Larry Rose, David Taliaferro, and Faye Emery were tapped into the Virginia 4-H All Star Chapter, a society honoring outstanding club work. This happened in the summer at Blacksburg during Short Course Week. Recently the 4-H Club welcomed as its new adult leader, Mr. Longmire, Assistant County Agent who has just moved into Essex County. Miss Alice Ankers, another leader for many years has left her post as County Home Demonstration Agent and so the club has not had her services during the past months. The officers for the 1964-65 club year are as follows: President, Patsy Kay Burch; Vice President, Larry Rose; Secretary, Barbara Owens; Treasurer, Latane Moore; Reporter, Faye Carroll Emery.

' V=,c?-’ i c w-raSi Uc ' S ? ,?;v‘ ' =: ■ ' = ' ' ' ATHLETICS On August 17, 1964, the T.H.S. athletic field once again became alive with football ' s flying and tackling dummies popping. Fourteen lettermen, many of last year ' s scrubs, and several newcomers made up the largest team in Tappahannock ' s history which was given the task of enlarging an eleven- game winning streak. Warriors who saw first string duty were: Tri-Captains -- Jack Kirk, Ranny Ferry, and John Christopher, -- Peyton Barton, Richard Balderson, Kenny Stevens, Peel Dillard, Jimmy Elliott, Jimmy Brizendine, Jimmy Guess, Carroll Elb our ne. Junior Watts, Gene Baughan, and David Taliaferro. Others who filled in capably and were on the special units were William Shelhorse, Bruce Rutledge, John Fogg, and Bobby Hammond. The Warriors came on strong in the first half of the season. After taking Lancaster fairly easily, the Warriors put their strength on the line and proved their superiority by tripping King George in a real defensive battle. The defense came through again for the following two weeks as the Warriors held Northumberland to a total offense of minus 12 yards and blanked New Kent who had been averaging 25 points a game. After stumbling by West Point 15-0, the Warrior defense, on a rainy Saturday afternoon, gave up their first score though Tappahannock took the victory. A week later, the Caroline Cardinals halted the Warrior ' s win streak at 17 games. To conclude a successful season in second place in District F, THS stopped W. L. 25-0. Two features of the 1964 team that were new to THS football was the roll-out passing attack and place-kicking the con ' ersions. Peyton Barton, who led all scorers with points, made these two novelties most beneficial to our scoring threats. Carroll Elbourne was the bread-and-butter rimner in tough yard- age situations and had the highest average gain of any Warrior and was second in scoring with points. Tappahannock representatives on the All-State were Peyton Barton, third-team, and honorable -mention: Jack Kirk, Ranny Ferry and Carroll Elbourne. The success of this team was due to the earnest desire to play well and the teamwork, particularly that that shown by the defense. Coaches Ashton, Robertson, and Dickinson who prepared the boys for each game deserve much credit. Though next year ' s team will miss twelve Seniors, enough experience and talent will be on hand for another winning season. THS Football — 1964 63 Warriors Boasted Longest Winning i TOUCHDOWN!

The Christ- mas vacation arrived showing that the Warriors had pulled in only one win among three decisive defeats. However, the New Year brought new hopes as the Warriors pulled their averages up and team to a contending position. The thrills and close games of last year were again on hand to keep fans biting their nails. The Warriors defeated Rappahannock by two points and Lancaster twice by only one point, with one game going into a thrilling triple overtime, and were handed a heartbreaking loss by Northumberland, the margin again being only one point.

Girls Reach District Tournament Led by the skill, quick thinking, and experience of captains Arlene Luttrell and Frances Ware, the girls ' basketball team achieved an excellent district standing, even though they didn ' t quite reach the top. The girls worked together extremely well, and all seemed to be working for the good of the team. Forwards Arlene Luttrell, Frances Ware, Patricia Balderson, and Nancy Hammond, backed up by Faye Delano, Ella Dunn, Martha Wachsmuth, and Jenny Lou Carpenter, set up a strong offense which couldn ' t be easily handled by other teams. The strong defensive action of Ann Lee Hite, Pete Fogg, Barbara Jean Eanes, and Anne Beazley, backed up by Judy Andrews, Bonnie Elliott, Linda Minor, and Sara Parrish, greatly limited the scoring of most other teams. Through extreme cooperation and sincere work and team spirit, these girls have set a preci- dent which will be indeed hard to maintain. 69 " Who tripped me? " " Shucks, I missed it! " " All joins hands and we ' ll . . . " 70 Warriors Become District Runners-Up Baseball at THS got off to a dismal start as the two opening games were postponed to later dates on account of rain. Anxious to play, the boys were downcast after having blown the first two games on errors and hitless innings. The Warriors began to feel the championship spirit though as they upset Rappahannock 4-3 and took wins from Lancaster, W L, Northumberland, and C. T. Smith. One game more was needed to tie Tappahannock with Caroline for the District crown. Rappahannock, our opponents in the last game, were in the same league position and were looking for revenge from our last meeting. This last obstacle wasn ' t to be overcome as the Warriors had to settle for a 5-2 loss and District Runnerup. At the bat, the honors go to Woody Johnson and Peyton Barton whose 400 plus hitting kept the Warriors out of manytough spots. Jack Kirk, Junior Watts, Johnny Fogg, and Ranny Ferry helped at the plate also. Pinch-hitters, Marshall Haney and Richard Balderson gave the team several clutch hits. Pitching went as follows: Peyton Barton, 4 wins and 2 losses, Johnny Fogg, 1 win and no losses, and Richard Balderson, no wins and 1 loss. Seniors whose abilities will be missed next year are catcher Junior Watts, infielders Jack Kirk, Ranny Ferry, Steve Winder, relief hurlers Jimmy Elliott and Billy Balderson, outfielders Jerry Elliott and David Taliaferro. This year ' s reserves promise good things to come in Baseball next year for Tappahannock. 71 Softball Team Drops All but Two Games This year our softball team ran into a few difficulties. In fact, the team only won two games. But tlie friendship, sportsmanship, skill, accomplishments, and laughter that we as a team obtained can not be measured. We will never forget the cokes Mrs. Mac brought us on that hot day, the bases we had to run whenever we missed a ball, our first victory, and the day we threw our assistant coach, Robert Johnson, into the shower. This year three seniors, Arlene Luttrel, Cindy Parsons, and Barbara Panes, will leave the team. But Nancy Hammond, Linda Minor, Pat Balderson, Faye Delano, Maragurite Taliaferro, Linda Hicks, Phyliss Davis, Aim Lee Hite, Sally Akers, Ella Dunn, Sarah Parrish, Bonnie Elliott and Bett ' Mae Crowe will return and tiy ' to win the district championship. Good Luck to the team of ' 66 and may it be the greatest team tliat THS has ever had.

Hard work and team spirit brought the Warrior ' s success this year when they won their first district track crown on May 4 on the Rappahannock High track. Victory came in the last event when the Warrior ' s mile relay team of Stan Williams, Mickey Taylor, Gene Baughan, and Bruce Rutledge placed third, one place ahead of Northumberland with v hom they were tied at twenty-seven points. The Warriors finished first with twenty-nine points and Northumberland second with twenty-eight. David Passagaluppi and Bruce Rutledge placed first in the broad jump and pole vault respectively to both remain undefeated in district competition. Wil- liam Sheihorse finished second in the pole vault as did Kenny Stevens in the discus. The bulk of the points came from the six third places won by the team, which authorities said had no depth. The third places were won by Dale Thomas in the 880 yard run, Stan Williams in the high jump, Passagaluppi in the 220 yard dash, Rutledge in the 440 yard dash, the 880 yard relay team of Mickey Taylor, James Clanton, Ranny Ferry, and Passagaluppi, and the mile relay team mentioned above. Bobby Durham had the Warrior’s only fourth place in discus. SheJJiorse, Passagaluppi, Rutledge and Stevens com- peted in the State Track Meet at Charlottesville. Shei- horse and Rutledge tied for first place in the pole vault and Passagaluppi placed second in the broad jump, losing by one-fourth of an inch which would have given the Warrior ' s third place. They had to settle, however, for fourth with eleven points. In other district competition the Warriors placed second to top rated Caroline in a quadrangular meet at Lancaster, and won over Northumberland in a dual meet on the Warrior ' s track. 73 Cheerleaders Radiate Enthusiasm, Pep THS Varsity cheerleaders Nancy Andrews, co-captain, Carolyn Downer, Ellen Charnock, Betty Delano, Sarah Clanton, co-captain.

Withstanding cold, heat, hurricanes and splashes, the dauntless girls never failed to support the Warriors.

Girls ' State was held at Radford College, and Boys ' State was held at the College of William and Mary. This situa- tion eliminated one of the highlights, the Governor ' s Ball, Nevertheless, THS ' s repre- sentatives came back with tales of marching, Peter Nero, new friends, good food, speeches, William Jennings Bryan Dorn (who was so well- liked he was asked to make the speech for Commencement exercises, ), The Common Glory and many other events. This institution was sponsored by the American Legion and the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary. Its purpose --to train future citizens of our country in the workings for their government -- was fulfilled by increasing the representatives ' feelings of patriotism. ' 64 Representatives -- Jack Kirk, John Christopher, Sarah Clanton, Betty Delano, Frances Ware. ' 65 Candidates -- Bland Motley, Peel Dillard, Mary Jane Brizendine, Nancy Hammond, Anne Beazley. Alternates -- Ed Parrish, Marshall Henry, Betty Mae Crowe, Linda Owens, Paul- ette Spindle. 77 THS Tackles Forensic Competition Tappahannock High School students brought honors home from both the district and the state Forensic Meets this year: SCHOOL WINNERS Boys ' Public Speaking -- Ranny Ferry Girls ' Public Speaking -- Paulette Spindle Boys ' Poetry -- Richard Balderson Girls ' Poetry -- Ann Lee Hite Boys ' Prose -- David Taliaferro Girls ' Prose -- Kitty Hammond Spelling -- Ann Beazley DISTRICT WINNERS: 1st place -- Ranny Ferry 1st place -- Paulette Spindle 3rd place -- Richard Balderson 3rd place -- Ann Beazley Ranny and Paulette represented tlie district in Charlottes- ville at the State Forensic Meet.

" Weeks of Hard Work Result in For weeks Mrs, Spindle and her cast worked on the Senior Play. There were try- outs, rehearsals, and cat taming. The hardest job was to secure a tame cat for the role of Henry. Finally the day came -- the day when everyone could find out what or who the " Bolts and Nuts " really were. On May 7, the school auditorium was filled for the debut of the great actors and actresses of ' 65. Even though these performances may not have been the best in the world, the efforts of an old maid trying to open a sanitarium will not easily be forgotten. Fine Showing of “Bolts and Nuts!” 79 i During half-time of the football game Miss Betty Delano was crowned Homecoming Queen 1964. Hurricane Isabelle Fails to Mascot, " little Warrior " Ben Ashton, rides atop a float in the half-time entertainment. Amidst the downpour of rain accompanying Hurricane Isa- bell, the Tappahannock S. C. A. sponsored its second annual homecoming. Tire parade participants, the football fans, team were soaked; nevertlieless, the rain failed to dampen anyone ' s spirit as the homecoming was termed a complete success. A week before the event, THS boys elected girls to represent their respective classes and a queen was chosen from three Senior princesses. The princesses were star attrac- tions in the parade, numbering over thirty units. The football team played up to par and took Middlesex, 26-6. The high- light of the game was centered upon the half-time the de- hghtful duty of the tri-captains of the football squad, J. Christopher, J. Kirk, and R. Ferry, each had the pleasure of kissing the queen, Betty Delano. The fans were entertained also by viewing the winning floats of the parade and by watching the band put on its performance. Tlrose who were in good spirits after the rain-drenched game, were looking forward to the main attractions of the weekend. The Home- coming Ball, held in the gym where (believe it or not) it was dry! The theme, " Stars of the Gridiron, " gave everyone the feeling of pride in their school, as they danced to the music of " A1 b The Animals. " Sentimentality was every- where as the princesses and queen and their escorts paraded themselves, while alumni wished they were back in school. 80 Dampen 1964 Homecoming Spirits During intermis- sion at the Home- coming Ball the princess and queen performed a pin- wheel figure.

Eating Hawaiian food served by the Hawaiian maidens, the students and guests really felt that they were enjoying a LUSCIOUS holiday in the South Pacific. Here, memories were made as the Seniors received their gifts and Juniors were ringed. With the romantic scent of lilacs, the prom took on a de- lightful setting of lilac streamers, balloons, -- and a feeling of springtime. Everyone had a fabulous time dancing to the music of tlie " Barracudas.
