Each Apprentice spends from eight to ten hours a week in the classroom during which time he is under the capable instruction and guidance of the gentlemen presented in this section. Here is acquired the academic background and training which may be applied as he gradually assumes his position in the shipbuilding industry. To these gentlemen, for their invaluable academic tiaining and the ii kindness and cooperation in all matters, the Apprentice is forever grateful. 4 10 r- VOCATIONAL FACULTY T. B.

When an Apprentice enters the school, he is put under the skillful supervision of these men. At first they teach him the fundamentals of the trade, and with the passing of time the finer points of the craft, thus molding and making him into a skilled craftsman. The Apprentice wishes to express his appreciation to these gentlemen for the encouragement, understanding leadership and training given him. 11 ■ CHART RECORDING VOYAGE OF S 5. APPRENTICE CLASS OF 19 5 5 CLASS OF We, the class of 1955, began our Apprenticeship during 1951. For many of us it was our first time away from the atmosphere of home life. Before long we saw new faces and made many new friends. For the out-of-towners life in a dormitory was a new experience, but taking it in stride we soon became accustomed to it. Almost any night, around the dorm, one will find various groups of first year Apprentices burning the midnight oil for a “happy hour ' ’ (studying for a test), or just getting their homework done for the next day’s classes. Not many of us are from large industrial districts and most of us are unaccustomed to seeing naval and merchant ships at our doorstep. By now most of us have come to understand the system of instruc- tion and what we will have to learn in order that this new venture of ours be a successful one.

Phillips, President CLASS OF 1954 We, the class of 1954, are now one year nearer to that day when we will be the senior class. The seemingly strange atmosphere into which we set foot as be- ginners has almost dwindled away and we find ourselves a part of the multitude and not alone in our efforts. The “new boy” feeling has passed, but there are always those who follow to remind us that we were once in their places. We have learned to work together, plan together, and enjoy life together with new friends and acquaintances. We’ve learned by listening, watching, and doing — the latter giving us a sense of useful- ness as contrasted to purely academic studies. As Apprentices who know, we can say that the yard and our in- structors have contributed much to our advancement and to our understanding of the modern industrial machine. And, also as Ap- prentices we can look forward to contributing something to those who follow. 26 CLASS OF 1954 Blassinoame, Leon Clyde Bratton, Thomas Abraham Bradshaw, Edward Sinclair Bunts, Edward Neal, Jr. Bush, John Albert, Jr. Clark, Henry Stewart Cleary, Charles Van Buren, Jr. Evans, Jerry Gordon Forrest, Robert Lloyd Godfrey, Donovan Lee Golub, Jay Andrew Griggs, Herman Carroll CLASS OF 1954 Joo, Charles Maurice Kilmer, Philip Roger Lamkin, William Hunter Matthews, Bobby Lee Mayes, John Emory, Jr. Owens, Raymond Eugene Parker, John Lee, Jr. Parker, Thomas Winston, Jr. Parker, Victor Ford, Jr. Phillips, William Ray Pirkey, Herbert Charles, Jr. 28 b Raines, Walter Aaron CLASS OF 1954 Rawls, Edward Allen Reynolds, James William Seabolt, Dale Penrod Seward, James Donald Wagner, James Howard Wilson, Maywood Lee Pictures not available Barrow, Louis Gaylord Beck, James Phillip, Jr. Hamlett, Irvine Lee Hudson, Joseph Glen Kinard, Kenneth Holland Michael, Eugene William Peace, Stuart Edward Rori, William Sergio 29 IN- Wells, Harold Denver ■Ml Class Officers Bill McClellan, Vice-President J.

For the most of us it means we ' re half through: for the drawing room boys, it means three more years. Now we are looking ahead to the completion of our apprenticeship. Let’s work hard and take advantage of all the opportunities to learn that are presented to us. In later years we can look back and smile because of the good foundation we are building now. Let’s go. Juniors! Let ' s make the most of it. -1 32 I- CLASS OF 1953 Bowden, George Franklin Coates, Carley Jefferson, Jr. Elmore, Aaron Bishop Flythe, Elwood Dennison Allen, Phillip Faunce, Jr. Barber, Leo Thomas Bassett, Eel.and Earl, Jr. Bel.ote, James Calvin ■4 33 h CLASS OF 1953 Gresham, Paul Granville Hale, Claude Arthur Harrison, Lester Davis Hill, Calvin Smith Hoover, Harry Lee Hurman, John Johnson, Clyde Johnson, James Hermon Johnson, Robert Lee, Jr. Landis, John Lane, Jr. 34 b Mallory, Luther Stinson, Jr. Markham, Roy Vance McClellan, Billy Louis Miffleton, Walter Beedles, Jr. Moore, John Henry 35 b- CLASS OF 1953 Moore, Malvin Earle Mvers, Cecii.

Depending on our chosen course of training, this year marks the completion of either three or four years of academic training. They have been interesting years. At the start, we were not certain of what the future would bring forth. But under the careful guidance and advice of both our academic and shop instructors our ultimate goal has come into focus. This year before us is ours to learn as much as possible of shop procedure and general yard principles. It is ours to show the way for those who follow, to set the fine example which has been put before us by those who have and are completing their apprenticeship. May we be worthy of the task. 40 CLASS OF 1952 Armstrong, Lawrence Channing August, Lawrence Bernard, Jr. Barber, George Raymond Barron, Robert Gordon Basta, Edward Belford, Robert Paul, Bright, Vance Orpheus, Jr. Collier, Richard Lamarr J R - ■4 41 y- CLASS OF 1952 Conlon, Bartholomew Fred, Jr. Cooper, Edward Roy Coppersmith, William Carlton Crittenden, Thomas Stilson Crockett, Lawrence Fulton Cuddy, Homer Carl Dale, Claude Harold, Jr. Drummond, William Earl 42 y- CLASS OF 1952 Dunn, John Woodson, III England, James Alfred ■ «, .

Seward, Vice-President CLASS OF 1951 Beginning the fourth or fifth year of our apprenticeship, depending upon the trade pursued, we become Seniors and, in due time, graduates or alumni with our careers ahead. As Seniors, we enjoy a good knowledge of our trade and its re- sponsibilities, plus the privileges of no classes. This, our senior year, with some of our class already in the service of our country and of others sure to go, tends to make our future seem uncertain. Even so, equipped with the knowledge and experience afforded by us our completed training program, we face our future confident of a brighter and better tomorrow. So to you fellow apprentices we say “Farewell and Good Luck.” 50 y CLASS OF 1951 Charles Robert Adams Hampton, Virginia Departments: Entered Boilermakers Department July 21, 1947, and graduated as Boilermaker on June 8, 1951.

Yet Apprentices were enrolled in the company’s training program in 1890 and the first graduated in 1894. These earlier years were the formulative ones. The method used then has been called over-the-shoulder training, or training by absorption, which proved inadequate. With the founding of the Apprentice School in 1919 came a program of both vocational and academic training designed to give the basic and essential engineering training adaptable to modern industry. This, we see, is training by intention rather than by the absorption method. Through the years progressive steps have been taken to insure that the latest methods and techniques are employed in the training of the Apprentices in their respective crafts. The vocational training in every craft is greatly varied due to the complexity of modern ships. The academic portion of the Apprentice system here at Newport News is under the supervision of men who have been in the shipbuilding field for many years and have been associated with young men and know their needs. The academic portion of the apprenticeship covers a well-rounded course, including drafting, mathematics, and science and such general courses as English, public speaking and economics, to name a few. At various intervals the Apprentice School is called upon to furnish additional draftsmen. The Apprentices selected for the drawing rooms have an additional year of apprenticeship emphasizing mathematics. The Apprentice School is rated as a junior college and is the only school of its kind with this rating. The Apprentice School is a leader in modern industrial training and has been highly praised by industrialists and and educators throughout the world. Paul Wells 62 b- mnacie L 63 Edward B.

Moore THE BINNACLE Out of the night she sails — a well-manned vessel at the be- ginning of her voyage, but toward the half-way mark, her crew dwindles, the wind slackens, and she rides almost in a dead calm. And, but for occasional flurries stirred by the remainder of her crew, she might founder and go down without having delivered her cargo. At times her crew has great expectations and can see port somewhere far away, but usually a screeing fog rolls in and seemingly threatens and actually delays the completion of the voyage. That’s the “ Binnacle” as compared to a vessel with a definite purpose and a crew who, t hough beginning the voyage willingly, has fallen prey to the ravages of time and negligence (and ir- responsibility), making it necessary for a few to do the work of many and the voyage take twice as long.

But, since nearly all the work is done at night after regular work hours, in- terest soon lags and of course produc- tion is held up. But, eventually, through the efforts of those still interested, the book comes through, usually very late but otherwise ready for its intended purpose. ■4 65 It - 66 I:-- Miss Glenna Howser Sponsor e Monocpam ( lab Though the war situation has greatly curbed the active membership and activities of the Monogram Club, a fairly full season was enjoyed by its members. The major activities for the club year began on May 29th when a Memorial Day Dance was held at the Grandview Ballroom. A very enjoyable evening was had by all in the large crowd attending the gala and much anticipated affair. The annual banquet for the baseball, basketball, and track teams was held in the Apprentice Dormitory on June 6th. Coach Vernon Haynes, who had accepted a coaching position elsewhere, was presented an honorary lifetime membership in the club along with a charm in appreciation for the fine work he had done while coaching the Apprentice football team during the 1950 season. As the year ended, plans were underway for the football banquet which was to be held in the near future. Needless to say, membership in the club is achieved through earning a letter in some one or more sports and the attainment of both the monogram and membership in the club are highly regarded and much sought after prizes.

One of the first things that comes into view when entering the dormi- tory is a spacious lounge decorated with some of the country ' s finest marine paintings. Also located on the first floor is the cafeteria, t. v. lounge and reading room. When checking in, Apprentices are assigned a room, which is usually shared with someone else, and from that moment on life will be full of new experiences. Living expenses are priced well within the Apprentices ' means. The cafeteria provides a good selection of excellent food. Some of the conveniences of the dormitory consist of automatic washing machines, public telephones, and parking facilities adjacent to the dormi- tory. Maid service is provided. For recreation, pool tables and ping-pong tables are provided in the basement. The dormitory is truly a home away from home.

APPRENTICE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION The Apprentice Alumni Association is probably best known to Apprentices by virtue of two of its projects — sponsorship of the homecoming football game and the presentation of various awards and trophies to members of the student body and graduating class. To Peninsula dwellers who aren ' t aware of the organization for the above reasons, the Apprentice Alumni Association is continually making itself evident in pursuing the ideals on which it is founded, that of promoting the general and social welfare of its members, of civic and community activities, charities and legitimate undertakings of the Apprentice School. It is well known as a very active Newport News organization. All who attended Apprentice football games this year enjoyed the soft drinks conces- sions operated by the alumni. 4 72 N APPRENTICE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION OFFICERS Walter A.

Its birth began when members of a debating team formed the first chapter. It soon spread to other sections of eastern New York and then throughout the country. In June of 1940 the first chapter at the Apprentice School was formed. This was Beta Upsilon which become inactive in June 1944 due to loss of members to Armed Forces. Later, on July 29, 1948 the present chapter, Gamma Zeta, was formed. Many of the charter members are still very active today. Only Apprentices may become members of this chapter. Gamma Zeta has many social functions during the year, such as its Christmas Party, Founders’ Day Banquet, Installation Banquet, Halloween Party, New Year ' s Eve Party and also hay rides, beach parties, bowling parties, scavenger hunts, oyster roasts and other functions. Early in the summer of 1951. a week-end at Nags Head Beach. North Carolina, was enjoyed by the members who are planning a similar trip this year. Gamma Zeta is very proud of its progress. It was first formed by apprentices with the same interests meeting in one of their rooms in the dormitory. It has now developed a home-like atmosphere in its own fraternity house con- taining soft chairs, sofas, a small library and a television set. Just recently the “Terminal” has acquired a new paint job and some new furniture. A convention is held once a year by the fraternity in one of the major cities of the country for the fraternization of members of its different chapters. At these conventions awards are given to chapters doing the most for its cultural advancement. The progress of its chapters and future plans are discussed at these conventions. Elections and such social activities as banquets and dances are also held. Gamma Zeta chapter of the Apprentice School was on its toes again this year by capturing two awards. First it won the mileage award, which was an engraved gavel. Mileage is figured by multiplying the number of miles each member traveled by the number of members present, and second, the scholastic award which is given to the chapter with the highest scholastic average. This is the second consecutive year that Gamma Zeta has won this beautiful walnut plaque. Carley J. Coates, Jr., scholastic award winner in the local chapter, also won the National .Scholastic Award at the convention for the highest individual average in the year 1951. 74 Officers of the fraternal year are Elwood Fly the, President; N. A. Barnes, Vice-Presidnet; Ansell Hawkins, Treasurer; Nollie Trapp, Corresponding Secretary; Andrew Smith, Recording Secretary; Phil Kilmer, Chaplain; Fred Griscom and George Barber, Social Chair- men; and Bo Dale, House Chair- man. Gamma Zeta also sponsors some of the Apprentice School activities and supports all of them. Thus far this year Gamma Zeta has sponsored a Pep Rally and bonfire prior to the Apprentice homecom- ing football game. For many boys away from home this fra- ternity affords numerous activities to enrich their lives as apprentices. 4 75 y culuaUon . E. Blewett.

Exercises for the 1951 graduating class of the Apprentice School were held at the Apprentice Athletic Building on January 18. 1952 at 8 p. m., attended by the apprentice student body and friends and relatives of the graduating class. Mr. J. B. Woodward, Jr., President of the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company, presided. The graduating class entered and took their assigned seats, followed by Mr. Woodward ' s introduction of Rev. J.

To receive the award, which is usually presented before an assembly of lettermen and those receiving awards for the first time, an aspirant must either play a required amount of time or accumulate a prescribed number of wins or points. Finally, his receiving or not receiving the award is determined through consultation with the various coaches and the Director of Education and Training or his assistant. Ike Student Beale) ojj Dilectols The board is made up of elected representatives of shops and the draw- ing rooms throughout the yard. Elections are held annually. The num- ber of representatives that a section may elect is based on the number of apprentices in that particular section. The purpose of the Student Board is to give the apprentices a voice in their government, and to render service to the Apprentice Student Body. Some of the duties of the government pertain to approval of awards for athletics and other achievements. Suggestions and complaints by the student body are given prompt attention and appropriate action is taken. For five years the Student Board of Directors has been an integral part of the Apprentice System. The Board has brought about changes which have helped the apprentices in a number of ways. The Board is doing a great job — give it your support. 82 {=- The Gthletic fiuildinj Number one among the leisure activities of many of the boys in school here, especially those at the dormitory, is probably that of recreation. The athletic building is the scene of the majority of the games and sports in which the Apprentices participate. Inside the building itself are the coaches’ offices, showers, dressing rooms both for Ap- prentices and visitors, and rooms for storing and repairing all the various equipment and clothing from season to season. Many boys find time after work and on Saturdays to “work out” at their favorite sport, particularly during the spring when the weather is agreeable and the evenings are long. During the winter as basketball season looms ahead, activity is stepped up inside the gym, but during the spring track season and football in the fall, the activity shifts to the athletic field which is always kept in the best of shape. We must give credit to Mrs. Pullen and “Pop” Lamkin for keeping things in order at the athletic building, thereby affording many of us many hours of worthwhile activities. Apprentice Christmas 4 84 b .Apprentice Homecoming No Apprentice, however limited be his interest in sports, can restrain and keep from igniting that spark by which our school spirit is enflamed. A more strik- ing example than the pep rally held by a representative group of Apprentice boys prior to the homecoming game will probably never occur. Instigated by Pi Phi, the pep rally, the first of its kind, was really a show of enthusiam on the part of those attending. A dummy, stuffed and attired to re- semble a badly mangled Wilson Teachers player, wit- nessed the entire proceedings. The stage had been set a day earlier by some of the Apprentices who had acquired a sizeable quantity of scrap lumber, boxes, etc., and had it stacked teepee fashion in the center of one of the ball fields. This was to be the attraction of the evening. Dead and deserted except for good knee-deep, dewey-damp grass since baseball season, the held came to life about 7:30. The bonfire was set off and the dummy braced up conveniently near and the early arrivals began to test for some good lungs to awaken the dead school spirit. As the flames grew, the crowd grew, Apprentices seeking a voice in the goings-on and curious onlookers aroused by such uncommon procedure. All wrapped up in the singing and cheering that went on for a couple of hours, the crowd overlooked their wet feet and lingered until the fire became too small to really enjoy it any more. The crowd gradually dispersed, and after making things secure for the night with the aid of local firemen, the last to leave escorted the dummy back to the dormitory where he was hanged by the neck from the front veranda for all to see, a symbol of the A’s hopes as to the outcome of the approaching game. 85 United States Keel laying — February 8, 1950 Ready for keel laying 4 86 y- VVon’t be long now tates First class suite First class Observation Lounge First class State Room Tourist class Dining Room Just needs water Taking on fuel for first trip 4 87 K- ARMED FORCES 88 b- Ashe, Fiske M.

Beginning early in the year with basketball and ending with the com- pletion of the football schedule, the sports season is a continuous period of activity. The participation in this part of the school ' s program included many of the Apprentices from all the classes and trades represented in school. School enrollment was up during 1951 as compared with the preceeding year, therefore many new faces were seen around the Athletic Building and on the athletic fields. Many of the new-comers made fine records for themselves in the various sports during the year and can no doubt look forward to even better records in years to come. To another group of Ap- prentices, 1951 brought an end to from one to five years of athletic activities. The participation of all of the lettermen who graduated will indeed be missed. The apprentice athletic program is organized so as to give everyone an opportunity to take part in the activities. It is the primary aim of the Athletic Associa- tion to provide not only opportunity, but equipment and coaching for those anxious to participate. Through participation in athletics, the apprentice gains much along the lines of physical development, healthy recrea- tion, and above all, valuable fellowship. Through sports, students have one of their best opportunities to become acquainted with other members of the student body. At the beginning of the new year, the coaching staff remained the same as it had the year before, but in August, just prior to the football season, Coach Vernon Haynes resigned from his position as Athletic Director and Head Coach. Mr. Jack C. Smith assumed the role of Business Manager, making schedules and other ar- rangements, while for the remainder of the year there was no Athletic Director. Coach John Burns moved into the vacancy created by Haynes’ resignation to coach the ’51 football team. Although the change came suddenly the program pro- gressed very well, and the football team lived up to the high standards set by previous teams. The overall picture of the athletic organization re- mained about the same in regard to the variety of sports present on the 50-51 schedule, as compared with the previous year. J. V. Basketball was not brought back this year; and only one basketball team was entered in the Yard League play, as compared with two entered in 1950. Despite the fact that the schedule was not as full as in 1950, the season was active from beginning to end and much merit can be found in the record made by the Apprentices in 1951. 94 fc- ATHLETIC STAFF The athletic staff of 1951 was headed by Vernon Haynes who acted as Athletic Director through August of this year. Serving with Coach Haynes during this time were Head Coaches John Burns and “Granny” Gresham, who were aided by a competent staff of assistants. Vernon C. Haynes Athletic Director One of the outstanding facts about this year’s staff, as those of the past, is that for the most part the coaches give so freely of their time and ability and receive as chief reward a satisfaction of knowing that they aided in bringing the best possible in sports to the apprentices. Through working with their different teams the coaches acquire a closeness to the apprentice students. Coach John Burns Coach Haynes guided the basketball team assisted by Willard Warren and Emmett Heath. Taking over as head football coach gave John Burns double duty to perform as he also led the baseball team. In football he was assisted by Buddy Bryant and Jesse Rama. Granville Gresham coached the track team through the season and coach Haynes aided him. For their tireless efforts many of us apprentices owe our gratitude and thanks. Coach “ Granny” Gresham 95 • Basketball APPRENTICE 19 FEBRUARY St Sun mon tue neo thu fri sat The passing of the fall months again brought basketball to the Apprentice School, and the gym became alive with the activities linked with this winter sport as the 1951 squad began its initial practice early in November. Each afternoon after work the netmen could be seen going through their paces, and pre- paring for the coming schedule. On hand to steer the team toward victory was Coach Haynes aided by Emmett Heath and Willard Warren. This was Haynes ' first season as Head Basketball coach since he took over the position of Apprentice Athletic Director, but both of his assistants had served previous years. To the combined efforts of these three, and the contributions they made go much of the credit for the team, one which measured up to its expectations, and which despite the absence of a winning season record lived up to the high standards established by previous Apprentice teams. 96 Even though the schedule undertaken wasn’t as long as that of last year it still presented the team with many difficult op- ponents and was considered far from easy. A total of 19 games were scheduled. Four teams were played more than once dur- ing the season, these being the W. M. Freshmen, W. M. Norfolk Division, R. P. I., and the N. A. C. A. When the initial practice was held a large number of Ap- prentices were on hand, many of whom were new comers. After the armed service and graduation had taken their toll only four members of last year’s team returned to play again. From this first day of practice it was evident that the lack of a great deal of height might impair the team’s chances. Helping a great deal to add needed experience to the squad were several players brought up from last year’s J. V. team. ■4 97 APPRENTICE 1951 BASKETBALL RECORD Apprentice. ... 61 Wilson Teachers 100 Apprentice. ... 64 W. M. Freshmen 62 Apprentice.. . .57 W. M.-V. P. I.

Despite the weather, from this time until the final meet many minds were turned toward the four meet schedule which faced the team. When the season was over a total of thirteen track and field men were awarded letters for the outstanding part each played in turn- ing out such a fine squad. Also rating praise are Coach Granville Gresham and Coach Haynes who assisted Gresham greatly. De- spite the small size of the squad its spirit was great both in victory and defeat. From the very beginning it was evident that a major handicap would be the absence of much of last year’s point making talent, due to graduation and the armed service, To balance this deficient and to boost general team moral was the presence of several promising freshmen. As the season wore on the value of these newcomers became more apparent, and they continually accounted for many of the A’s points. As usual the standbys from previous seasons also kept up their fine records, and the team bound itself together into a well rounded group with all its members sharing the point making glory. The only taste of victory for the thinclads, came in a triangular meet. In the threeway contest the win margins for all the teams were small. At the final tally our team won a second place over Hampden-Sydney with Randolph- -4 99 l!=- Macon taking first. In the other contest the A’s ended up short of victory despite their great will to win. Individually each of the thinclads deserves praise for the records he made. Lou Liberty and newcomer Fred Griscom led the team in total points followed closely by Eddie Cooper and Joe Meredith, with the rest just below this total. Hopes for next year’s team are higher than before despite the loss of two great trackmen, Ira Jenkins and Eddie Cooper, who have added greatly to past squads. To close out the season, four Apprentices travelled to Lynchburg to compete in the state A. A. U. Meet. The 1951 events brought together much keen competition, rated among the best. The outlay of talent proved too great for the foursome as they met defeat along the course of the meet. Billy Watson received top honor among the group when he placed fifth in the 100 yard dash. Upon returning, the other three, Joe Meredith, Fred Griscom, and Jessie Ricks, no doubt regretted losing, but were happy to have been downed by such good opponents, and thought the trip very worthwhile. To the coaches and the team go much praise for their failthful, and fine participation in this great sport. And as they set their sights for next year hopes run high for an even better season. -4 100 R Baseball Opening practice for the Apprentice baseball team began early in March and found many newcomers turning out to boost the hopes of the 1951 diamond squad for a winning season. Foremost among the problems facing the team was the replacing of three of last season’s players not returning due to graduation. The experience gained through last year’s competition also raised the preseason expectations. By the opening game Coach John Burn’s Shipbuilders were eager to gain victories from their col- legiate opponents. Competition encountered was very keen and the well rounded Apprentice nine were prepared to match their skill with the best of their opponents. JUNE £ UN MON -iuf MCn ruu crii s NA AvH — m SUN WON TOE WE D THU FRV SA.T o 30 101 h In their initial game the A ' s got off to a fine start by downing the Medical College of Virginia by a score of 7 to 4. After gaining one win, fate went against the team and they dropped five games in a row. In the seventh game the Apprentices came back to win over a Tri-County team in a practice game. Following this came a victory over M. C. V., and a defeat at the hands of the Norfolk Division. With the season drawing to a close the team caught the spirit of things and went on to win their remaining games. A summary of the season includes such facts as the team ' s winning five of their final six contents, the overall playing of Captain Conky Sorrell and Bob Lincoln, and the hitting of Phil Weddle, Homer Cuddy and Hardy Gwyn, along with the fine efforts of the other team members. Two players who showed great im- provement as the season grew were Doyle Watkins and Rex Forbes who will be missed by the 1952 team since he graduates this year. A brighter spot in the season and somewhat of a climax came when the squad won the Shipyard League Championship. -4 102 I football To our three capable coaches, Burns, Bryant, and Rama, go out warmest thanks for the production of such a fine football team as the one turned out in 1951, and for the sincere training that was afforded each member of the ’51 squad. Although the odds were against the “Shipbuilders” most of the season, due to injuries plus a great deal of inexperience, they gave their fullest cooperation to im- prove spirit and overcome all difficulties and developed into one of the finest teams in the area. After losing five straight games the Apprentices won the remaining two of the seven game schedule. Game APPRENTICE 19 NOVEMBER S Sun mom tue weo thu fpi sat number six was probably the most dramatic and perhaps the best that the “A’s” played all season. The game was with Wilson Teachers College of Washington, D. C. A last minute touchdown by the Apprentices gave them the lead and the game ended with a score of 21-20. Only one game was played away from the Apprentice Athletic Field. This game was with Hampden-Sidney at Death Valley. The “Tigers” scored four touchdowns on their home field to dispose of the “A’s” with a 20-0 win. ■4 103 m APPRENTICE FOOTBALL ROSTER SAME U l NAME ENDS Beck. Jim Burris, Arthur Conlon, B.

It takes a great knowledge of working responsibility, plenty of interest in sports, and a relentless spirit for the love of it all for a manager to keep his particular team in top condition. Not many are able to experience the feelings and the praises, and satisfy the aches, pains, complaints, and needs of the individuals of a team as is their manager. It is through their efforts, willingness, and school spirit that teams coached in sports are kept prepared in the way of equipment and other needs. Not only the teams with which they work, but each of us takes off his hat to “ Our Managers. ' ' ’ ■4 105 R ■ ' ; • ' ■ ' .y. A total of eight teams were entered in the Shipyard Softball League of 1951. Of these, three were made up entirely of Apprentices. From out of the different departments came two of these, the Hull Drawing Room Apprentice and the Ap- prentice Engineering Drawing Room. The third team was taken from the entire student body, and was coached by an ex-Apprentice, J. C. Childers. Hull Drawing Room Apprentice Engineering Drawing Room Throughout the season all three teams displayed great spirit but were unable to gain victory often enough to win top honors for the year. The greatest reward of the participation of the teams came through the fellowship found rather than through season records. Apprentice School This and the yard Baseball League constituted one of the main means of out- side contest especially between the 56 Apprentices included in the league. The increase of interest during this season gives rise to hopes that next year’s will be even better than the 1951 league. -4 107 L- Pencil Pushers House League Champions •3io use L eague Basketball As in past years the interest in itermural basketball brought about the organization of an Apprentice house league. This year’s league was composed of six teams, slightly smaller than last year. All games were played at night in the Apprentice gym. Due to the fact that other teams used the gym also, league activity was limited to two nights a week, and the schedule was very crowded. With the election of officers and drawing up of the schedule complete, the season went into full swing with over seventy Apprentices enjoying this form of competitive recreation. For the most part the teams in the ' league were well rounded and remained on a comparatively even basis. Aside from keeping records the officers informed the paper of scores and other records so as to keep team members posted as to standings, schedules, etc. At the end of the season the Hull Drawing Room won the play-offs and thereby became champions. Presentation of Trophy to House League Champions -4 108 Electricians Sheet Metal Pipe Department Machine Shops Hull Drawing Room In early September 1950 the class B bowling league was organized, officers were elected, and the season got under way with six teams competing for for the championship. For the second consecutive year teams participated which were made up entirely of Apprentices. Both the Machinery and Hull and Drawing Rooms had Apprentice teams in com- petition, showing an increase in interest in the sport since only one team was entered last year. With this increase of interest bowling seemed destined to become a permanent means of sports participation at the Apprentice School, thereby allowing organized recreation for a number of duck pin enthusiasts. Machinery Drawing Room In addition to competing as a team member one of the Apprentices was elected to serve as a league officer. Claude Hale of the Hull Drawing Room was elected Secretary-Treasurer of the group. Through the schedule set up by the league its members were allowed to bowl one night a week for a period of nine months. When the season ended in April members of both teams were looking forward to next year and another try for the championship. 110 F- ROSTER OF APPRENTICES JANUARY 1951 TO JANUARY 1952 Adams, Charles Robert Adams, Jack Clinton Adams, Joseph Robert Allen, Philip Faunce, Jr Allison, Samuel Dudley, Jr Armentrout, Robert Curtis ...

Much of this effort is devoted to military requirements and to development work to meet the needs of industrial customers in expanding and im- proving their production facilities. At the same time, ceaseless efforts continue in the field of fundamental research . . . the quest for entirely new ideas. Due to the broad range of the research program, scores of new developments come from Westinghouse laboratories each year. These developments range from large power giants to generate electricity to such things as a tiny electronic device so sensitive that it can detect the presence of air in a vacuum system in which only one air molecule remains out of every 10 thousand billion originally present.

Beautiful or ugly, each according to her merits. Guardian angel or sea witch, as befits her temperament. Queen or tramp, depending on her position in nautical society. Now, to join her sisters of the sea, comes a mighty liner, a Great Lady in the grand manner and a queen in her own right. With dignity and grace the S. S. United States will carry our nation’s name, our nation’s flag throughout the world in peace and, if need be, in war. Designed by Gibbs Cox, she was built by the Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Company, under contract from the Maritime Administration, for ownership by the United States Lines. Now fitted out for passenger service, she can be quickly converted for transport duty. Like any great lady, the S. S. United States boasts the finest fittings and equipment. Outstanding products of the nation’s leading manufacturers contribute to her beauty, speed and sea- worthiness. Among these products are hundreds of Electro Dynamic motors, forming the big majority of auxiliary power installations on board.
