A t - . 1952 ELMER B. GIVINS Apprentice Instructor 1919-1949 DEDICATION Who was born in Craig County, Virgin- ia, July 13, 1884. His retirement from ac- tive service as a member of the Apprentice School faculty was effective July 31, 1949, after a continuous service record with our Company dating, from July 15, 1918. We consider it a privilege and an honor to dedicate this eighth volume of The Bin- nacle in sincere appreciation and gratitude for his guidance and friendship through the years. 4 Introduction This, the 1952 BINNACLE, is present- ed by the staff with congratulations and friendliness. Congratulations to you, the graduating class, and a feeling of warmth and friendliness to all the rest. As you have no doubt already noticed, this issue of the BINNACLE makes a de- parture from the precedent set by previ- ous issues, as far as size is concerned. This is due to circumstances over which the staff has no control. It is the desire of the staff that, despite its difference in appearance, the book will serve fully as well as past issues of the BINNACLE in fulfilling its designed pur- pose, namely to serve as a record of your activities in this year of 1952, and in the more distant future to recall to your mem- ory those pleasant days, and dear friends, of your Apprenticeship. If the BINNACLE is the source of any pleasure to its viewers, it will have served its basic purpose. If it is instrumental, in any way, in the development of interest in student activities and the Apprentice School, it will have served gallantly above and beyond the call of duty and the staff will consider its work more than worth- while. We sincerely hope that you enjoy this — your 1952 BINNACLE. 5 Bfttr n a Board of Directors of our Company as they met in the office of John B. Woodward, Jr., President. Left to right: John B.

WHITE Director of Education and Training A dm in istra tion The Administration of the Apprentice School is based on the idea that it is im- portant to the Company, the Individual, the Community, and the Nation that there be skilled workmen performing the tasks so vital to the well-being of all involved. Skilled craftsmen don’t just happen. They have to be trained. That is where the Ap- prentice School fits in. There was a time when what little “training” a young man could obtain was acquired by looking over the shoulder of a skilled mechanic, for whom he ran er- rands and performed many menial and distasteful tasks. Of course, that is how the mechanic learned and in time (a mat- ter of many years) the Apprentice would learn too. The other way was to permit the trainee to practice the craft under trained super- vision. The program was set up in three basic steps — -(1) present the idea, (2) per- mit the trainee to accomplish the idea, (3) correct whatever faults remained. It soon became evident that this meth- od was not the most satisfactory since it consumed a great deal more time and was actually less effective than another. Having set up this basic program, it was deemed desirable, if not necessary, to supplement it with training for leader- ship and good citizenship. Around these fundamentals was built the Apprentice School by the foresight and dreams of many faithful and hard working men. The people pictured on these pages are those appointed to see that the ideas and ideals developed by those men of vision are carried out, and the graduating Ap- prentice is, in part, their product also.

Faculty On these pages you see pictured those gentlemen who present to the Apprentice the knowledge and craftsmanship which are essential in the development of a skill- ed artisan. While the above is the most evident contribution they make toward producing a first-rate mechanic, it is not the only one by any means, for it is they who are greatly instrumental in molding the Apprentice’s character. Through their understanding and interest, a newly regis- tered Apprentice is soon well on his way toward that final goal, graduation, and as time for graduation draws near, he an- ticipates the occasion with faith in him- self and his ability. Whatever undertak- ings he may become a part of, you may be sure that the training received at the hands of the Apprentice School Faculty will stand him in good stead and make him a citizen his community can be proud of. The BINNACLE salutes the Appren- tice ' s first friends. Student Board The Student Body is governed by a Board of Directors chosen from among the entire student body. The plan which has thus been worked i out is: Each department having any apprentice has at least one representative on this : board. For each ten men or a fraction of ten men in any department, one man is i seated on the Board of Directors. Meetings are presided over by the pres- ident of the student body. These meetings of Directors are held in the auditorium, usually im- mediately after working hours. The main purpose of the Student Board of Directors is to promote harmony among students assigned to various departments throughout the Yard, by assisting in the organization and establishment of all clubs, associations, and societies within the school. The Student Board of Directors also transacts all other business of general in- terest to students not otherwise provided for. Left to right at table: L. W. Stancil, Jr., E. B. Bright, N. A. Barnes.

THE NIGHT SHIFT The night shift boys whose pictures ap- pear above are members of all the vari- ous classes, and we have grouped them to- gether in one photo for two reasons. Since they are working when the rest of the ap- prentices are off. we thought they would like to be in one picture and we felt it would be an imposition to ask them to ap- pear during their time off to get in their regular class picture. 40 AWARDS FOR 1952 The CHARLES F.

Holloman OUR SCHOOL ANNUAL THU BINNACLE is published yearly by the apprentice student body. This is the eighth publication of a series which began with the year 1941. Because of the World W ar, which enlisted all avail- able manpower, the publication of THE BINNACLE was discontinued after the 1942 edition and it wasn ' t until 1947 that publishing the yearbook was resumed. The name for these books through the years has remained the same, and still 44 goes under the title, THE BINNACLE, it being a term used on board ship to des- scribe a compass and its housing. We hope this book will acquaint the graduates with many fond memories of their stay here in school. It is dualy our purpose to introduce the under-classmen to the various phases of our social life and athletic activities. A meeting for selecting a staff was call- ed in November and all interested Appren- tices were invited. At this meeting Rodney W. Carroll, having been managing editor of the “49 ' ’ edition, and having other pre- vious journalistic experience, was elected editor. The duties of Class Editor were given to L. E. Holloman. Selected as Fea- ture Editor was R. J. Whitley. Handling the sports section was H. Hinote, who was ably assisted by R. T. West. M. Jones was elected as photographer, and had as his as- sistant Joe Tapscott. Working with the staff to handle business matters were D. A. Yeatts, business manager, and E. O. Wright, Jr., assistant business manager. James Barron and W. R. Bazzarre also as- sisted with the publication. We extend a hearty thanks to the Ad- ministrative Staff who have helped im- mensely in compiling data, typing, and generally going out of their way to help us. THE BINNACLE Left to right: J. P.

Having fulfilled this require- ment he must attend six consecutive meet- ings during which time he is on probation and after which he may receive a club charm. On Monday, March 17, a banquet was held. Letters in football and basketball were awarded. Mr. R. B. Hopkins was guest speaker and movies of the William Mary-Penn State game were shown. On May 29, the Annual Memorial Day Dance was held at the Grandview Pavil- lion with music by Bill Clement ' s fine or- chestra. This proved to be a very success- ful and enjoyable event. The B and M Drive-In was the scene of a banquet meeting held for the purpose of awarding baseball and track letters and the election of new officers. One of the outstanding events of the club year occurred when, on October 24, the Monogram Club presented William Reynolds with a plaque, club charm and chain, and a $50.00 defense bond in ap- preciation of his past service to the Ap- prentice School. MONOGRAM CLUB OFFICERS, left to right: Ware, Phillips, Parker, Reynolds 46 Joe Smith is shown proudly re- ceiving the linesman’s trophy pre- sented by the Peninsula Sports Club. Mr. Herbert Morewitz, President, cited Joe for not only being one of the most valuable players on the team, but for re- flecting in everyday lile, the spir- it of friendliness and good sports- manship necessary lor making any team function properly. This banquet was given by the Monogram Club and honored our football team. The team was praised, by the various speakers, for its clean playing and high standards of sportsmanship shown at the games. Agencies represent- ed were “Times Herald” and “Daily Press” newspapers and the Peninsula Sports Club. Mr. Herbert Morewitz, Presi- dent of the Peninsula Sports Club, spoke to the Monogram Club and guests on good sports- manship, and praised our team for giving all that they had in the games. Cited among our handicaps was the fact that we have no paid or tuitioned play- ers, and that we practice and play only after we have left our trades in the shipyard at the close of the working day. 47 - j HA j JrA PI PHI MEMBERS, seated left to right: Shinn, Coates, Kilmer, Hawkins, Poythress, Hooks.

PI PHI FRATERNITY During the year there were seventeen members, and these officers were elected: Elwood Flythe, President; C. J. Coates, Vice-President; Phil Kilmer, Recording Secretary; Ansell Hawkins, Correspondent Secretary; and James Schade, Treasurer. Pi Phi ' s activities throughout 1952 were well planned and well attended. Among them were the annual Installation and Founders ' Day banquet, the Halloween scavenger hunt, and the usual all import- ant get-togethers after each football game. Just to mention a few other social activi- ties sponsored by Pi Phi. we must include the annual Christmas party, and the al- ways popular New Year ' s Eve party, where if you did not have fun it was no one ' s fault but your own. Then too, there was the well attended St. Valentine ' s dance as well as countless numbers of beach parties and wiener roasts. 48 Pi Phi departed from its usual custom this year and instead of holding its regu- lar beach party at Nags Head in North Carolina, the festivities took place at Wrightsville Beach also in North Carolina. For a few days following this annual out- ing at the beach, quite a few of the boys, including Elwood Flythe and James Schade, were unable to do much of any- thing but lie still in bed trying to recover from a fine case of sun poisoning, or at least that is what they told us. One of the most important events of the year was, of course, our annual conven- tion. We journeyed to Baltimore, Mary- land, in the latter part of August for our formal meeting and of course a wee bit of fun on the side. To mention a few of the serious moments during this conclave, we were honored to have T. W. Parker pre- sented with the outstanding Individual Scholarship Award for the National Fra- ternity. The Scholarship Plaque was awarded, for the third consecutive year, to the Gamma Zeta Chapter, our own local group. Something else worth mentioning is the fact that since it was first formed in 1948, this Chapter was honored by placing two officers in the Grand Chap- ter of the national organization. J. Nollie Trapp was elected Grand President and Bobby M. Lake was elected Grand Vice President. PI PHI OFFICERS, seated left to right: Trapp, Coates, Shinn, Poythress, Kilmer.

They don’t look like hill-billies, do they? But you should have heard the good old mountain music these Apprentices made with their guitars at the Christ- mas Party. And that yodeler at the microphone reminded us of Eddie Arnold. Punch line .... That fellow up front can’t make up his mind whether to taste it or not. The second one surely looks rather doubtful. The others seem happy about the whole thing but we were not around with our camera when they finished drinking the contents of that bowl. 50 CHRISTMAS PARTY Our Christmas season this year was ex- ceedingly festive, as was illustrated by the dual parties, and the general feeling of merriment which prevailed in the entire school. The first party was given by the Ap- prentices for the under-privileged children of this area, the highlight of which was a visit from Santa, bearing gifts for all. Movies exemplifying legendary Christ- mas stories were viewed and the children selected a “Quartet 5 ' from among their number to sing carols on the stage. Their party closed with the entire group singing carols. Immediately following, the kids were taken to their homes by their hosts. The second party was given for and by the student body. Apprentices and their dates were entertained by movies, vocal sele ctions sung by Mr. Loper, and general carol singing. Festive refreshments were served by Mrs. Pullen and her staff. As the party closed, strains of the beautiful carols could be heard floating out on the brisk winter air. Say, remember when you were a kid? . . . and how much it meant to you to talk to Santa Claus? . . , and how serious you got when he asked what you wanted, and you couldn’t think of a thing at the moment? We’re sure this pic- ture takes you back to those bygone days. SUCH IS LIFE . . . DORM LIFE, THAT IS Some studied at night, some went to the movies, some were fortunate enough to have a date . . . this fellow was interested in literature. Many mornings sleepy eyes looking down from the dormitory window thought they saw cars parked this way. 52 Hey, look out, bud. that blunderbuss may be loaded! M-M-M-M-M — We would certainly rather be at the beach than in school, what do you think? Talk about excitement! This fellow sure looks as though he were reading, but from his expression we can’t imagine what kind of a story. Here are a couple of sad sacks if wc ever saw any. Guess some gal is getting quite a sales talk, and it’s put to music too. Gotta match? That dash across the street killed the fire. Well, will I go in and get what’s com- ing to me? Looks like he doesn’t believe the story, from the position of that fist. Ho-hum! — Wish she’d hurry up. I’ve been here an hour. 53 Be-bop or classical. I guess we’ll never know. One of lile’s serious moments — in the chow line. Here are those crazy cars again. This fellow was really serious — - guess he made a few mistakes. A-packin’ his bag - - probably getting ready to shuffle off to Buffalo. Aw, gee. honey. I can’t make it tonight. I’m kinda broke. 54 Must be something good judging by the size of the package. Just shined it up — and boy, is he proud! And he’s one of the most gentle guys in school. Honey, the sound of that machine is music to my ears. Guess he needs those glasses — watching for his ship to come in. Dorm Life Is Very Informal, No? Five little apprentice’s all in a row. Oh, well, there was no place else to put this picture. They sure look happy. They must know that the lion is made of stone — Some fancy tie on that fel- low on the left. 55 BINNACLE Space would not permit us to publish the photos of all the lovely ladies submitted by various members of the Joan Cooper Ann Satchell Anne Gray 56 BEAUTIES student body. Therefore, we have published those select- ed by a group of impartial fudges, to add a little color to our school annual. Mary Ann Liberty Margaret Pegram Shirley Neal 57 VARSITY FOOTBALL After three weeks of hard and long practices, the Maroon and Gold were finally ready to face the task of meeting the William and Mary J. V. After many changes and shuffles, Coach Burns thought he had the team that could do it. Playing probably one of the best games they played all year, they went down to defeat 20 to 19. Conley Smith started the Shipbuilders off ' in a hur- ry as he snagged one of Lincoln’s passes in the end zone to give the Apprentice a 6 to 0 lead. This lead was held until the third quarter when W M led going into the fourth, 13 to 12. Both teams scored in the fourth quarter but the toe of “Had- acol” Hines was too much for the Apprentice. Not to be outdone by the W M defeat, the Shipbuilders worked hard before traveling to East- ern Carolina Teachers College the next week. Be- ing plagued with injuries the Apprentice did not fare so well as they went down to their second de- feat, 37 to 6. The first foe for the Apprentice coming back home for a six-game stand were the Randolph- Macon Yellow Jackets. The Apprentice found the Yellow Jackets too much as they went down to their third defeat, 33 to 0. With four of the A’s key players injured, Po- tomac State moved into town. The Shipbuilders played an excellent game but couldn’t seem to get moving at the right time as they went down to their fourth defeat, 12 to 7. Bob Lincoln played occasionally because of his shoulder injury and scored the only Apprentice touchdown. This was on a pass play coming from Pat Phillips to Lin- coln on the 23 yard line of Potomac where he did some beautiiul running the rest of the way. Once again the team was praised for its defensive efforts. Still not being able to click at the right time, the A’s went down to their fifth setback at the expense of Hampden-Sydney Tigers. Although making one of their best efforts of the year, the Front row, left to right: Joe Smith, N. A. Barnes, Lou Liberty, Homer Cuddy, Bart Conlon, Paul Gresham, T. T.

Looks like a lot of excitement — and some of the boys got their new pants all dirty. A’s just couldn’t make their scoring opportunities a success. Once again the A’s muffed scoring chances one after another as they went down to defeat, 13 to 0 to Sheppard College. Although getting 16 first downs to 5 for Sheppard, out-rushing and out- passing them, the A’s just couldn’t out-score them. The Shipbuilders could move the ball from their 20 to the Sheppard’s 20 but after that it was all over. Not to be outdone by six defeats, the A’s came through in their homecoming game by defeating Wilson Teachers College, 7 to 6. The A’s followed up the next week running over Montgomery Junior College, 9 to 0. The Apprentice traveled to Bridgewater Col- lege to end the season. Although losing 13 to 0, the team came back in good spirits looking for- ward to next year. 1952 FOOTBALL SCORES Apprentice 19 William and Mary J .

VARSITY BASKETBALL After finally learning to work together the Apprentice basketeers really got roll- ing and only lost two out of the last eleven games. One of the losses being to West- inghouse Apprentice of Pittsburgh. The As closed out the season with ten wins compared to eight losses. Coached by “Pop " Lamkin. the A ' s starting team consisted of all returning lettermen, except Haskins. The team was backed up by a good supply of able re- serves which contributed much to the suc- cess of the team as a whole. We are certain that the team will miss their departing lettermen. Homer Cuddy and Lloyd Ware. We are equally as sure that the team will have another good sea- son in 53. 62 1952 BASKETBALL SCORES Naval Training Station 89 A’s 71 Wm. Mary J. V. 89 55 Wm.

The A ' s opened the season by topping the Medical College of Ya. 4-2. The sec- ond game for the Apprentices also turned out to be a success, winning from Norfolk Division 5-3. The third game proved to be a disaster with the A ' s dropping a close 9-8 decision to William and Mary. In the fourth game unearned runs allowed the Randolph-Macon Yellow Jackets to smother the Apprentice nine 8-2. The rest of the season proved to be good for the boys of the Maroon and Gold allow ing them wins over R. P. I., Chowan College, Medical College, Norfolk Divi- sion. and at last, again Chowan College.

TRACK Although having a losing season in Track, the A ' s shoved great strength and the Track Meets usually went down to the finish to decide the winner. The Maroon and Gold in their close meets were led by Larry Crockett throw- ing the shot put and discus, Bob Kennell in the high and low hurdles, Jim Beck as 68 pole valuter, and Joe Meredith as dis- tance man. Also helping out were John Cowley, Frank Edgar. Melvin Davis, Ed- die Cooper, and Carl Parker. The A ' s are in a rebuilding stage and are hoping for better things next year. They were coached by “Granny " Gres- ham. Cheerleaders W. T. Latham and A. B. Mashburn OUR CHEERLEADERS Athletic events seem to need “just a lit- tle lift 1 ' at times, and our cheerleaders added the right amount of enthusiasm and pep to keep the spectators keyed up and cheering our teams throughout every game. Win, lose, or tie — the boys knew the crowd was enjoying the game, and they did their utmost to provide the fans with something to cheer about. Although our cheerleaders were not quite as cute or animated as some of those who were urging our opponents on to vic- tory, we appreciated their efforts and tried to follow their lead. Sometimes it was difficult to get all of us roaring, especially when our team was not doing so good — but, the boys out front managed to get us going loud enough, and long enough to let the team know we were behind them. 69 f ; ■■■ K v View of Yard showing repair work along Docks and piers in foreground and the Power Plant and HF-P Shop in upper right. Above is an aerial view showing the three dry docks used for servicing various types of ships. 72 The Old Dominion Mar- iner returning to port after successfully completing her sea trials. This ship was the first of 35 identical ships to be built for the U. S. Mari- time Commission. Each of the five built by us will be named after a southern state, Old Dominion Mariner - Virginia, Tar Heel Mariner North Carolina, Volun- teer Mariner Tennessee, Palmeto Mariner — South Carolina, Cracker State Mar- iner — Georgia. The rudder and propeller of the old Dominion Mariner are shown assembled on the ways prior to launching. The S.S. United States is 980 feet from stem to stern, making its 257 feet longer than the S.S. America, which formerly was the longest Ameri- can superliner afloat. The S.S. United States is the third longest passenger ship in the world. The Queen Mary is 1.019 feet, and the Queen Elizabeth 1,031. The overall cost of the S.S. UNITED STATES was about $70,000,000. The designing of it took two years, and the job of building it lasted over three years. It is powered by steam turbines driv- ing four screws and is faster than any other com- mercial vessel afloat. We Apprentices knew her as Hull 488. Drawing Room — Just a few of the hundreds of persons that work thousands of hours just to design a ship. It is here in the drawing rooms that most of the problems of building each ship are solved before the average workman in the yard even knows there is a problem at all. Here in the Machine Shops are produced, en masse, the great pieces of machinery that drive many of the ships built here. Here also are produced power- ful hydraulic turbines that drive electrical generators that pro- duce power for many sections of the U. S. and foreign coun- tries. 75 ROSTER OF APPRENTICES ADAMS, James Francis, Wattsville, Virginia ADAMS Joseph Robert, Pungo, North Carolina ADAMS, Nathan Jean, China Grove, North Carolina ADAMS, William Clay, Pine Knot, Kentucky ALDRIDGE, Charles Lindsey, Hopewell, Virginia ALDRIDGE, Herbert Marshall, Hopewell, Virginia ALLEN, Hinton Warren, Wendell, North Carolina ALLEN, Philip Faunce, Jr., Newport News, Virginia ALLEN, Robert Lee, Newport News, Virginia ALLISON.
