Foreword 

In the infinity of tomorrow it lies, our future, latent with possibilities, 
full of doubt, possessed of many problems waiting and needing to be solved. 

It shall be to our everlasting credit if we, the students and graduates of 
today, set forth in the future to solve these problems and to clear away the 
doubts. 

All through our lifetime thus far, we have seen and heard of little 
except selfishness, isolationism, warfare, and economic problems develop- 
ing from wars. 

With this in mind, we of the younger generation will strive never to 
allow our children and our friends' children to suffer the privations of an- 
other global war. 

We were born during a financial depression; when we were five years 
of age, a potential enemy unsheathed its long and evenly tempered sword 
of aggression against its oriental neighbor. At six, we saw a great central 
European power seize another country by force. In 1939, when we were 
eleven or twelve, an unprovoked attack on a defenseless nation by a pre- 
vious aggressor rang up the curtain on the second World War within a 
generation. 

All this seemed too far away to be important to our parents who were 
doing our thinking for us; Europe and Asia were left to fight their own battles. 
Finally we were attacked and we set out to defeat those nations that had 
stabbed us in the back. It is the boys of our generation, our older brothers 
and sisters, and we ourselves who have done, are doing, and will do the bulk 
of the fighting. 

Realizing the part that we — the youth of today and the hope of to- 
morrow — will play in making this a better world, we see it fitting to devote 
this, the Anchor of the class of June 1945. to thoughts of "Our Future 
World."

Dedication 

Asserting their belief in the axiom that there is a first time for every- 
thing, the staff has chosen to give the June 1 945 Anchor a double dedication. 

MISS FRANCES L. TAYLOR 

Though she has not long been a part of NNHS, Miss Frances L. Taylor 
will never be forgotten by any of the many students who have come to 
know her. How could they when they recall that it was she who taught music 
and journalism and supervised the publishing of the Anchor and Beacon, 
each a job within itself? 

To Miss Taylor, in recognition of her fine work and her friendly co- 
operative spirit, this Anchor of June 1945, is respectfully dedicated. 

MISS JEANETTE WARD 

"Now here's where you have to use your psychology," has become fa- 
miliar to all of the Anchor staff, for it signified that Miss Jeanette Ward 
was helping us solve some pressing and perplexing problem. 

We first met Miss Ward when she taught us freshman English; in senior 
English class, we learned about life through her guidance; and, serving under 
her on the Anchor staff, we learned how to work. 

So that her affableness and contributions to NNHS may not go un- 
recognized, this Anchor is dedicated to Miss E. Jeanette Ward.

Sponsor’s Message 


My dear members of the Class of June '45 — 

I suppose you have had your fill of "good advice," so I will not offer 
you any — no, not even mention to you again "duty with a capital D" or 


have done me in electing me your sponsor and that you know I shall ever 
have a personal and deep interest in your welfare. Especially dear to me 
are the many among you with whom I have plodded thru the great funda- 
mental laws of physics with their mathematical and commonplace inter- 
pretations and applications. 

Well, our life together — and it's been most pleasant — is over, and I 
am offering you, instead of advice, a little story which has been an inspira- 
tion to me down the years. May you find it so, too; for it is an allegory of 
life if you choose to read it as such. 

The story is of a fierce battle which raged and swept back and forth be- 
tween the forces of EVIL and RIGHT. The day wore on and a noble knight, 
who had fought his way most valiantly into the heart of the Evil forces, 
found himself unhorsed, with broken sword. "I am undone," he cried, 
"alas, defeated," and held up his hands in token of surrender. Behind 
him, also unhorsed, came the King's son crying, "On to Victory." He 
came fighting with bare and bleeding hands, for he had lost his sword in 
the fray. The forces of Evil closed in about him; hard pressed on all sides, 
he spied the broken sword that had been cast aside as useless. He cried, 
"Thank Cod for a weapon." Then wielding the broken piece mightily, he 
won that day a great victory and raised the standard of Right high for all to 
see. The sun, setting in the west, emblazoned the battle-stained banner 
with the red and gold of the victor. 

Very affectionately yours. 


"Work is not by excuses," but I will say that I appreciate the honor you

FOURTEEN 


KENT MILLER 



•Carrot- topped and blue-eyed, 
Kent combines a puppy dog 
personality with real ability. He 
is the boy who has become two 
of the three things you can't be 
more than one of — by holding 
the presidency of his class as 
well as of NNHS student body. 
On the athletic side, "Pinky" 
displays a letter in track and 
football. 


SI NELMS 

A tie signifies a date, but he 
never wears a tie. Shy but 
easy on the eyes is a bad com- 
bination for the girls! Si is 
one of the most accommodat- 
ing boys in the class. Being 
Mr. Conn's right hand man. Si 
has devoted much of his time 
to athletics and their manage- 
ment. This entertaining con- 
versationalist is ever desirable 
company. 



ANNE BURTON 

"Well-dressed," "efficient," 
"attractive," are all suitable 
adjectives in the description of 
our secretary, who piled up an 
impressive record during her 
four years sojourn at NNHS. 

When she was a 4-Low, Anne 
was honored by being chosen 
the "D. A. R. Good Citizen." 



BETTY HARP 

A smile that is sparkling and 
a disposition like an ice cream 
soda make Betty everybody's 
friend. During the football 

season, our "Woman In White" 
helped lead the band as a flag- 
twirler. Betty's versatility is 

proved by her list of activities, 
good scholastic standing, and 
widespread popularity. 


NELSON OVERTON 

Dignified Nelson has com- 
bined athletics and scholarship 
to obtain pleasing results He is 
not a bookworm, but his natural 
intelligence has aided him in 
becoming one of our top-rank- 
ing seniors. Track has been 
his specialty along athletic 
lines. Appearing serious, he 
surprises one with his gay and 
entertaining conversation. 




OLGA CRITZOS 

Black-eyed Olga, our vale- 
dictorian, has carved a place 
for herself in the hearts of her 
classmates and teachers — a 
place that will never be filled 
by anyone else. Almost any 
morning she can be seen bub- 
bling over with vitality and 
dashing about the school on 
some important business. 



HERBERT BATEMAN 

A shock of unruly hair and 
a winsome smile have won 
Herbert a host of friends. His 
final contribution to successful 
student activities has been 
made as Editor of our Anchor. 
The intelligence, tact, and pa- 
tience displayed in this field 
have assisted his journalistic 
ability. 


ROYDEN GOODSON 

Somehow he reminds us of a 
little boy caught stealing cook- 
ies in the pantry and trying to 
escape being spanked. This 
winsome boyishness is en- 
hanced by a freckled face, 
sandy hair, and a persuasive 
smile. A more mature side of 
his nature is revealed during 
Honor Council meetings. 



FIFTEEN 



PAUL PEEPLES 

Never one for words, Paul 
lets his actions speak for him — 
Best Student of the Senior 
Class, Anchor Business Mana- 
ager, Honor Student— they defi- 
nitely speak well! If there is 
any one person who has the 
respect of both the faculty and 
students, it is really Paul. 


FRANCES ROBESON 

Her personality is as bright 
as the pennies in her long 
brown hair; her mind is as keen 
as a razor. Who? Why, it's 
Frances Robeson, our third 
honor student, who is also one 
of the capable Business Man- 
agers of our Anchor. 



JACK HAYES 

The quality of gay and last- 
ing childhood is Jack's and 
he's as full of fun as a Bugs 
Bunny cartoon. Carefree, he 
keeps a respectful distance from 
responsibility and enjoys life. 
That curly brown hair and those 
blue eyes are valuable assets! 




MYRA KALKIN 

A scientific mind lies behind 
those brown eyes. The ambi- 
tion to be a doctor remained 
temporarily dormant while a 
girl from New York scholasti- 
cally carved her name on the 
Nelms' Honor Scroll and took 
a prominent part in school ac- 
tivities. Fun to know and work 
with is the Anchor staff's ver- 
dict. 


STELLA BICOUVARIS 

Whiz - — something just 
zoomed by — don't bother about 
turning around because Stella, 
editor-in-chief of the Beacon, 
is no longer in sight. Dark eyes 
— full of fun, brown hair tossed 
casually over her shoulder, this 
popular senior is always in 
great demand, for the pass- 
word to the Beacon room is — 
"Where's Stella?'' 



CHARLES WICKE 

More fun than a circus, diz- 
zy as a merry-go-round is our 
"Master of Mirth," Charles 
Wicke. An outstanding physi- 
cal characteristic is the uncon- 
querable shock of hair which 
stands straight up like a full pin 
cushion. But his easy going 
manner is deceiving, for there 
is always something stirring 
above those ears. 


CECELIA JONES 



One of the most versatile 
young ladies of our class is Ce- 
celia — not only chosen best-all- 
round girl — but also rated an 
honor student. Easy on the 
eyes, she has found no difficulty 
in maintaining a steady date 
list. Her peppy personality 
and carefree manner account 
for her unusual popularity, and 
her work in extra-curricular ac- 
tivities has been outstanding. 


RICHARD BARTLETT 

Quiet and reserved in a large 
group, Richard becomes en- 
tertaining and witty when 
among close friends. During 
his Newport News high school 
career, his amiable manner has 
proved a valuable asset in both 
schoolwork and social activi- 
ties. Never one to burden 
others with his troubles, he has 
always been willing to aid a 
classmate in a time of emer- 
gency. 



SIXTEEN 



WALTER STERN 

"Still achieving, still pursuing, 
Learn to labor and to wait." 

Big in stature and in heart is 
Walter Stern, that dark haired 
boy seen everywhere at once. 
If you want something done, 
see Walter; for traits such as 
dependability, ability, and will- 
ingness to work are his trade- 
mark. 


DICK AJALAT 

"Going, going, gone, to the 
gentleman in the polka-dotted 
suit." Our school auctioneer, 
Dick, is at it again. Tall, dark 
complexioned "Brooklyn" not 
only officiates at auctions, but 
also has a singing voice that 
we know will make "Frankie" 
himself swoon! 



ERNEST EDWARDS 

We look into our crystal 
ball. It is 1960. On the mar- 
quee of a famous New York 
theatre, we see "Inside Ameri- 
ca," written by Ernest Ed- 
words, starring role played by 
Mr. Edwards, and program il- 
lustrations done by the same 
person. While in NNHS Ernest 
has shown himself adept as a 
playwright, artist, and footlight 
facer. 


VERNON SMITH 

His hands will unlock the 
door to success. It is too early 
to predict what sign will be 
painted on his office, but it 
may be "Artist," "Sports Edi- 
tor," or "Executive." His en- 
gaging smile, pleasant manner, 
and nice personality plus his 
versatility have made Vernon 
an important member of the 
Beacon and Anchor Staffs. 




DOUGLAS SNEAD 

Take a D as in dreamy- 
eyes; add an O as in obliging, 
a U as in understanding, and a 
G as in good-looking; take the 
L from likeable, the A from 
artistic and the S from swings- 
a-torrid-trumpet, and you have 
our Assistant Art Editor, Doug- 
las Snead. 



ELAINE HOPKINS 

"Hop" is quiet, calm, and 
eager to listen to whatever 
any one has to say. She is 
the "Adrian" of our class, and 
we'll expect to see this girl's 
name on the clothes we wear 
in the future. Do you remem- 
ber her mad dashes to art class 
on Fridays after school? 



MAYER SARFAN 

Above the noise of the 9:00 
o'clock bell can be heard the 
sound of running feet. Sar- 
fan's late again! Combining 
English 8C, a job in the ship- 
yard, and Sports Editor of the 
Anchor is a lot of work for one 
person to handle, but Mayer 
can and does. His ever ready 
smile, combined with an un- 
failing sense of humor, makes 
him one of the best liked boys 
in school. 


JACK CRAWFORD 

"Well-groomed" appropriate- 
ly describes dependable and 
likeable Jack. During his high 
school career, he made an out- 
standing record in athletics. He 
was rated as high in track as 
he was on the dance floor. 
President of the "Jiving Co- 
Eds," he's really the typical 
teen-age boy. 



SEVENTEEN 


BERNARD AUGUST 



When he dons bell-bottom 
trousers this summer, Bernard 
will be identified as tall, of me- 
dium weight, with brown hair 
and eyes. Our description, how- 
ever, includes more adjectives 
and runs something like this: 
talented musically, following in 
the footsteps of Gene Krupa 
when it comes to tickling the 
snakeskins, and well-dressed. 


FLORENCE ARCHIBALD 

Take creamy white skin, a 
pair of dark eyes, black hair, 
and ruby lips, blend carefully 
together, add a touch of lip- 
stick, a bit of powder, stir in a 
smile ,and you have our best 
looking girl, Florence Archibald. 
She can sing, too. 



MAYER BINDER 

The life of any party he at- 
tends, Mayer is always the 
center of attraction as he gives 
side-splitting imitations com- 
plete with facial expressions. 
He is the prominent member 
of the music department who 
rolled them in the aisles at our 
annual spring concert when he 
appeared as Mayerinsky Bin- 
derofsky. 




S POTT IE BIVINS 

Sweet and just as welcomed 
as the peppermint stick on a 
Christmas tree is "Spottie's" 
familiar "Hello, Honey!" A 
combination of charm and 
frankness won for her the Class 
vote as most popular senior 
girl. 


MARJORIE BOSWICK 

Blue eyes and brown hair 
are an unusual combination 
for an unusual girl. Too, there 
is a pert little smile that goes 
with a tiny dimple in the corner 
of her mouth. Enthusiastic over 
everything she does, Marjorie 
did a wonderful job as secre- 
tary to Mr. Dellapenta, as class 
giftorian, and in the making 
of friends. 



CALVIN BRIDGE 

Another absentee graduate 
is Calvin Bridges who inherited 
the title "Fearless Fosdick" in 
view of his athletic prowess. 
While he was in school last 
term, his name was a regular 
on the sport page, and his yard 
gaining runs with the pigskin 
made him the terror of Ty- 
phon opponents. 



MARGARET BOWDEN 

"Early to bed, early to rise." 
Well, we can't verify "early to 
bed," but the "early to rise" 
is evident in the case of Mar- 
garet Bowden. She holds the 
unusual and enviable record of 
never having been absent or 
even late during her four years 
in high school. You can usually 
find her at the skating rink 
where she exhibits proficiency 
on four wheels. 


ROBERT BROWN 

Never did Bobby let studies 
interfere with having a good 
time. In four years of high 
school, he distinguished him- 
self, not as a student or par- 
ticipator in activities, but as a 
good companion. Since he al- 
ways has something funny to 
say and is ever full of ideas for 
a good time, Bobby is much 
sought after. 



EIGHTEEN 



NAOMI BRUNDAGE 

"June" represents the girls 
from the other side of the 
Mason and Dixon line. With 
her northern accent, .sweet per- 
sonality, red hqir, skating abil- 
ity, and all-round niceness, she 
contributes much to the happi- 
ness of her class. 


WILLIAM R. BURNETT 

What are we bid for this 
black-haired and blue eyed 
male? On second thought, he's 
not for sale because he is in- 
valuable. Smiling yet worrying 
— lazy yet obliging — Bill is a 
perfect companion who can 
adapt himself to almost any 
situation. 



ANNE BYRD 

Always happy — 

Nice clothes — 

Notices everyone — 

Eyes of blue — 

Brownish hair — 

Yet with golden glints — 
Rather quiet — 

Dreamy with a real Southern 
drawl — 



CARL CANNON 

Carl is one of that rare 
species of anankind — a gentle- 
man. Always neatly dressed, 
Carl is never seen without a 
tie — either bow or regular. 
An unusual sense of humor 
combined with determination 
and ability makes Carl's a 
pleasing personality. 


FRANK CARTER 

Frank, right hand man for 
the Drama department, has 
been of great service to the 
school. Perhaps his greatest 
contribution was the attractive 
decoration of the stage for the 
annual concert. Always jok- 
ing and ever ready to help, 
Frank has played his high 
school role well! 



JEAN CAMINADE 

If you have seen a tall, slim, 
dark-haired girl with a slow 
sleepy smile, who moved about 
the halls with a grace that 
made her seem to float along, 
it was probably Jean. The suit 
or dress she wore was doubtless 
made by her own hands, for 
a whiz is Jean at the sewing 
machine. 


TOMMY CHALLONER 

Big, blond, and good-natured 
Tommy has a remarkable sense 
of humor. His lighthearted- 
ness and carefree spirit are con- 
tagious. This mischievous young 
man not only loves to play 
pranks on others but also en- 
joys one on himself. Laugh- 
ing blue eyes and typical boy- 
ishness give him an air of in- 
nocence which proves a bit de- 
ceiving. 



FRANCES COATES 

A lively girl with a big smile 
and a yen for a good time is 
an accurate description of 
Frances Coates. Business may 
come before pleasure when 
she's in printing class, but 
when pleasure comes, Frances 
is ready, willing, and able. 



NINETEEN 




NORMAN COINER 

"Chicken," Newport's In- 
dian rubber man, is as inde- 
structable as a Sherman Tank. 
Besides possessing a monopoly 
on pep, he has a capacity for 
hard work plus an active funny- 
bone. Regardless of the cir- 
cumstances that may confront 
him, we're sure that he can 
take care of himself. 


CELESTE DOWDY 

A paradoxical name — Celeste 
(meaning heavenly) and Dowdy 
(meaning shabby) — is ignored 
on meeting the owner. Web- 
ster's definitions cannot be ac- 
cepted in a description of Ce- 
leste, as her amiable nature, 
pleasing candor, and work as 
Beacon Business Manager tell 
a different story. 



EDWARD COLLINS 

Easy-going and carefree, Ed 
is one of the most independent 
boys in the class but he is al- 
ways a friend when one is 
needed and a help in time of 
emergency. His ready smile 
and hearty laugh are enviable 
assets. 



MARION EUBANK 

Tall, slender Marion is "seen 
but seldom heard." Though 
quiet and reserved, Marion is 
fun to be with and she's an 
all-around friend. The candor 
in those deep brown eyes shows 
that she's conscientious in her 
work and dependable to the 
Nth degree. 


NANCY FAULEY 

To paint her picture we'll 
smear a goldish color for her 
long "Veronica" hair, put a 
curve or two in the right place, 
and splash in the lines of a 
stylish dress for our "Sadie" of 
Beacon fame or put in the tra- 
ditional white of a flag twirler; 
but we'll have a harder time 
getting just a touch of an im- 
pudent grin to reflect a care- 
free personality and love of 
fun that would name the pic- 
ture, Nancy Fauley. 




JOE COX 

Another country has been 
heard from! It's curly-top Joe 
from "A little bit north of 
South Carolina," drawl 'n all. 
His infectious laugh lets us 
know he's around and he al- 
ways has a tale a little taller 
than the one just told. 



GOLDIE FOX 

Here's a sweet girl who 
smiles all the time and is always 
joking. She likes sports, espe- 
cially skating and dancing. 
They call her "Goldie the 
Locks" — a look -at her picture 
will explain why. 


ALLEN CROSS 

Crew-cut Cross is here among 
the scholars. As he himself 
would say, "Clem, how'd I ever 
make it." Allen can be seen in 
the hall any old time, as he 
watches the girls pass by and 
shouts after them, "Well, 
Da-aisy Ju-une." 



TWENTY 


MARY LEE FOX 


JAMES M. DANIELS 



"What say?" is Mary Lee's 
greeting as she passes by with 
her usual smile. Being super- 
intendent of the C and D period 
printing classes that slaved 
over the Beacon, she is one of 
our "heroes of the press." She 
will always be remembered by 
her fellow classmates for her 
friendliness and good humor. 


James is a drawling Georg- 
ian who is full of tall stories. 
This reticent, good-natured fel- 
low is not seen much around 
the halls because he is busy 
with machine shop work. James 
is adept in all mechanics. He 
hopes to own the biggest auto- 
mobile business in the world 
some day. 



SARAH FOX 

We'll always remember "Ab- 
bie" with her humor that would 
pop out like measles and her 
knack of getting any of us 
out of our lowest moods. To 
cheer us on the side line, she 
could always dig out her ac- 
cordion as she did in our Fresh- 
man Assembly — remember? 



WILLIAM ELLIS 

If he doesn't emerge some- 
day as a professional football 
player, he'll probably pass 
through his old home town 
while he is on tour with the 
Metropolitan. Cookie Ellis, the 
Nelson Eddy of his class, has 
distinguished himself not only 
in football and chorus, but also 
as the other half of the famous 
"Bookie and Cookie Comic 
Team." 


HOMER FERGUSON 

Happy - go - lucky Homer, 
"Bucky" to his classmates, 
possesses two of the most en- 
viable brown eyes in the school. 
He is never the one to let 
studies worry him, but he en- 
joys life and tries to help oth- 
ers see its good points, too. 
Optimistically, he retains the 
same steady pace and seldom 
changes his opinions or his af- 
fections. 



FLORENCE FRIEDMAN 

Here is a trim, feather-bob- 
bed Miss with a Northern ac- 
cent. Her enthusiasm for any- 
thing she undertakes is well 
known; consequently, "Flo" is 
in constant demand. This ex- 
cellent dancer often practices 
her favorite hobbies, dancing 
and photography. 



FRED FIELD 

Drop two large brown eyes 
in a round face and sprinkle 
generously with freckles. Place 
this on a husky body and bake 
in the sun until brown. Add a 
heaping helping of humor, an 
analytical mind, and an easy 
going manner. What do you 
have? Why, it's Fred Field, of 
course. 


GLORIA FULLER 

Tiny and blond Gloria, the 
baby of the class and other- 
wise known as "Dolly," is a 
member of long standing in 
the Beacon room. She takes 
an unusual interest in swim- 
ming, dancing, and red heads. 
Always willing to help, she has 
contributed her time in typing 
for both school publications and 
helping in numerous ways.

DAVID FORREST 

Friendly — 

Oh, that bass voice — 
Resides in East End — 
Really nice — 

Easy to get along with — 
Second Benny Goodman — 
Tall and lanky — 


NANCY GARRETT 

Full of fun, vivacious, and 
friendly, Nancy has proved her- 
self an indispensable member 
of the class. Her cheery smile 
and ready wit have brightened 
the day for many a discouraged 
classmate. She possesses a 
unique laugh which is slightly 
off-key but pleasing to the ear. 



EUGENE GOODMAN 

Far different from his brother 
Stanley is this quiet young man. 
When Stanley is continually 
talking, Eugene generally 
stands, listens, and feels con- 
tent to add an occasional com- 
ment. Perhaps Eugene is never 
particularly exuberant, but he 
can always feel at home in any 
company and can contribute to 
almost any conversation. 



ANN GAYLE 

This quiet blonde with blue 
eyes and a fair complexion has 
a genial disposition. Although 
quiet, she has a cheerful greet- 
ing for all and has many 
friends. Seldom heard, she is 
reliable, trustworthy, and most 
willing to do anything she can. 


SHIRLEY GOLDSTEIN 

Smart Clothes, wavy brown 
hair, smooth personality — all 
may be used to describe Shirley. 
Dancing rates tops on her list 
of diversions. Full of fun and 
always ready with a snappy 
comeback, she has made many 
friends throughout her school 
career. 




STANLEY GOODMAN 

Gabs all the time — 

Originally from North Carolina- 
Orders his brother around — 
Dying to graduate — 

Many friends — 

Always playing tennis — 
Naturally smart — 



JEAN GOODRICH 

Miss Mademoiselle of 1955 
has brown hair and eyes plus a 
winning smile. Music is her 
main business, for she not only 
enjoys dancing, but plays the 
piano; and, contrary to most 
adult expectations, here is a 
high school student who likes 
the classics. 


HALL GRAY 

“Holley's" sympathetic na- 
ture makes him a grand person 
to know when gloom comes 
one's way. He is as considerate 
as Sir Walter Raleigh, as smooth 
as Beau Brummel, and as amor- 
ous as Don Juan, especially 
where the disciples of Florence 
Nightengale are concerned. 



TWENTY-TWO 



MARJORIE GURLEY 

A Lauren Bacall voice, husky 
and pleasing to the ear, coupled 
with long dark hair and blue 
eyes means "Marge." She is 
tiny to look at and fun to know, 
whether riding a horse, jerking 
sodas, at student council meet- 
ings, or in the classroom. We 
can expect to hear that mel- 
lifluous voice on our phono- 
graph some day. 


CHARLES GREY 

Can be seen at the C & O — 
Hurries to school — 

Ambitious — 

Rather quiet — 

Likes girls — 

Enjoys playing the clarinet — 
Serious minded — 

George Washington school is 
where his interest lies — 
Really dark hair — 

Eyes of blue— 

Yes, he is full of fun. 



EVELYN HANCOCK 

"Life of the Party" personi- 
fied is the likeable "Bootsie." 
Her interest — outside her wide 
circle of friends — is in clerical 
work. The fact that she is en- 
gaged to the owner of the 
skating rink may well account 
for her liking that sport. 



WINTON HAMILTON, JR. 

Full of the right kind of per- 
sonality and carefree — that's 
Winton. Beneath his brown 
hair and behind his brown eyes 
lies a keen mind, a mind he 
seldom disturbs except to call 
forth humor, to make an un- 
enjoyable experience a happy 
one, or to worry about plans 
for the week end. 


HASTINGS HAWK 

If "silence is golden," this 
silent superman is a gold mine. 
Even if silence isn't golden, 
Hastings is still a gold mine to 
any athletic coach. Hawk, 
whose chief diversion seems to 
be the making and breaking of 
records, is a virtual dynamo of 
power. Hercules would look to 
his laurels if he could see our 
most athletic boy during a foot- 
ball game or while handling the 
weights in a track meet. 




BILLIE HILL 

It's no wonder that flippant- 
ly attractive and likeable Billie 
Hill has already been spoken 
for. A gay confiding manner 
and a piquant turned-up nose 
are among her assets. During 
her high school career, she de- 
voted most of her time to retail 
selling. After graduation she'll 
turn her attentions to being a 
Mrs. 



FRANK HOPKINS 

Frank is eternal energy per- 
sonified. His athletic feats have 
endeared him to the men of 
brawn, and us, too. Not con- 
tent with merely participating, 
he has been given the nick- 
name of "assistant coach." 


MURIEL JARRETT 

A female mathematical whiz, 
president of the Literary Club, 
secretary of the Chemistry Club, 
and a grand girl to know sums 
up Muriel Jarrett. Sincerity and 
friendliness are hers along with 
honey colored hair and eyes to 
match. 



TWENTY-THREE 


EUGENE JOHNSON 



In Tubby, we have a versa- 
tile combination of brawn and 
amenity. Well known for his 
record breaking jaunts around 
the track, Tubby also appears 
in the Hall of Fame as most 
popular boy. Look deeply into 
his eyes for the secret of his 
success. They'll get you! 


ANNIE MAY JOHNSON 

Here's our Annie May, run- 
ner-up for prettiest girl in the 
class. Amiable and always 
laughing, she brings a touch of 
cheerfulness to classmates who 
like to worry over low grades. 



ROBERT JONES 

He's jusf a little devil, a 
"printer's devil or helper." He's 
the boy who spent his school 
hours in S-7 as Mr. Thompson's 
right hand man. Beneath an 
ink blackened apron, he worked 
untiringly so that the Beacon 
and school programs might 
come out on time. The school 
owes much to Robert for his 
cooperation, hard work, and 




/ 

GENEVA JONES 

Business-like is the young 
Miss Jones who, it has been 
predicted, will probably fill a 
niche somewhere nearby as a 
stenographer. If her business 
skill doesn't pull her through 
every difficult situation, then 
her big blue eyes with those 
long curly lashes will! 


VIRGINIA JUSTIS 

After wandering to Wilming- 
ton, North Carolina, and Ho- 
boken, New Jersey, Virginia 
finally decided "There's no 
place like home" and returned 
to Newport News to step into 
line as a quiet dignified senior. 



JAMES MACKEY 

Fun-loving as Donald Duck, 
Jimmy is always full of jokes. 
Well dressed and tidy, his per- 
son reflects good taste. His 
favorite pastimes are swim- 
ming, bicycling, reading, and 
singing with the "Builders' 
Sextet." 



DORIS REA KLINE 

Next to talking, Doris likes 
skating. Poise, smiles, and at- 
tractive clothes are her trade- 
marks. This typical subdeb's 
lively personality makes a 
bright spot in ye olde halls of 
school. 


HERBERT MAY 

"Herbert May, are you going 
my way?" say all his friends as 
they pass. Instead of the usual 
"Hi," he often calls out in his 
pleasant voice, "Look out!" 
"Talley Boy" with his ever 
ready smile is our first choice 
for best dressed senior boy. 



TWENTY-FOUR 


BETTY LEE 


ARDELL McCOY 



It will always be that win- 
ning smile by which Betty will 
be remembered. Despite her 
pleasant ways, smooth com- 
plexion and good figure, it will 
always be that smile. 


To join the navy was his am- 
bition and now he is fullfilling 
it. Around school Ardell was 
quite a Casanova, but basket- 
ball was his first love. Quiet 
and reserved but always on 
hand to do some good, that's 
NNHS's “gob” Ardell. 



EDITH LEWIS 

Edith, otherwise known as 
“Edey Bits," can easily be rec- 
ognized by her freckles and 
naturally curly brown hair. She 
bears a strong resemblance to 
Shirley Temple. Skating rates 
tops with "Edey” and dancing 
comes as a close second. 


JAMES MOORE 

Two things interest James 
more than any others — avia- 
tion and getting all the fun he 
can from life. His interest in 
aeronautics has made him study 
much in subjects relative to 
that field and his love of fun 
has caused him to make and 
hold many friends. 



R. MANLY MESIC, JR. 

This five foot ten inch, brown 
haired lad is ably described by 
his middle name. Manly, a 
prominent high jumper and 
pole-vaulter on this year's rec- 
ord breaking track team, also 
ranks high in the estimation of 
his classmates. 


MARY LOU LEX 

Here is the portrait of a fine 
girl — bright and laughing 
brown eyes, wavy brown hair 
and a sunny personality. “Lou 
Lex," as her many friends call 
her, loves to laugh and dance. 
To sum up her characteristics, 
Mary Lou is “an all-round good 
fellow." 



JULES MORGENSTERN 

Modest and unassuming — - 
Oh, what a guy- — - 
Roams the hall before class — 
Going to college — 

Engineering is his ambition — 
Never gives up — 

Stamps are his hobby — 

Tries to play the violin — 

Eyes of brown — - 

Reaching for the highest in life 

Neatly dressed. — 


dixie McKenzie 

Tiny, dainty, petite Dixie 
McKenzie with her fluffy blonde 
hair and ever ready smile has 
managed to win the hearts of 
all of us. She will always be 
remembered for her brightness 
and amiability. 



TWENTY-FIVE 



LLOYD MORRIS 

He may be quiet and shy 

when seen walking down the 

hall; but, when he's on the 

basketball court, he tells a dif- 
ferent story. Here he can be 
seen darting in and out and 
harassing the opposition to the 
point of distraction and ac- 

counting for many a point for 
the home boys. 


betty jo McWilliams 

We present Betty Jo, our 
“Senior-song-bird — lovely to 
look at and delightful to hear." 
With a gleam in her eyes and 
a smile on her face, she has 
made countless numbers of us 
happy with a song. 



CARLETON MOSLEY 

The Atlas of mythology held 
up the world, but Carlton "At- 
las" Mosley let down the tra- 
dition of his nickname by get- 
ting only as far as his piggy 
bank. But even the real Atlas 
couldn't have been a more 
pleasant and well liked fellow. 
His smile is one which presents 
his set of "china" to the best 
advantage. 




FAITH MICHIE 

Faith is "Happy in Love" and 
for "Always." In April, she was 
married; and, at the close of 
school, she will take her place 
among the housewives of Amer- 
ica. Even though she is quiet, 
Faith is always ready with a 
bright smile. 


JEAN MISSET 

Friends frequently warned our 
"Atom" or "Shorty," "Watch 
out or you'll fall into that 
crack!" Jean is proof of the 
old saying about good things in 
small packages. Our golden 
blonde puts her heart into 
whatever she undertakes and 
does well. 




ERNEST MULLER 

A jovial and "study hall 
haunting" skyscraper is Ernest 
Muller. He, with a well tanned 
neck ungirded by a tie, stands 
above the common herd. He 
possesses a well developed sense 
of humor and is always ready 
to laugh at a joke — be it his 
own or someone else's. 



RUTH MITCHELL 

When Ruth Mitchell's name 
is mentioned, it calls to mind 
smart clothes, equestrian abil- 
ity, a flair for beating out 
boogie woogie, and a pleasing 
singing voice — all of which 
combine to give her sophisti- 
cated charm. 


DONALD PELAVIN 

Dimply — 

Oh, what a guy! — 

Noted for resemblance to 
"Great Gildersleeve" — 
Always happy — 

Lazy at times — 

Determined as MacArthur — 
Physics is his main worry — 
Enthusiastic — 

Liked by all — 

Always pleasant — 

Ve rsatile — 

Interested in business — 
Numerous friends are his — 



TWENTY-SIX 


JOAN MOORE 



One day she is a sophisti- 
cated young lady with upswept 
hair, but the next she appears 
as a little girl with daisied pig- 
tails. Unpredictable as the ra- 
tion situation, Joan always 
keeps us guessing except when 
it comes to friendliness and 
humor. 


EDGAR PELTZ 

"Little Dynamite" — that's 
Edgar; for, when it comes to a 
big argument, he's sure to be 
in it. His pleasing personality 
is matched only by his desire to 
do better. Edgar's ambition is 
to become a doctor and, with 
his foundation of physics and 
chemistry, he has shown that 
he will be a whiz in that pro- 
fession. 



ROSALIE NEWBILL 

There will always be the 
lighthearted souls who make 
the world a less melancholy 
place, such souls as Rosalie. Her 
understanding and pleasing per- 
sonality should serve her well 
in her chosen profession, nurs- 
ing. 



RICHARD PENCE 

Dickie, the easy going presi- 
dent of his home room, is a 
friend to everyone. He has ob- 
tained a part in the senior play 
and yearns to be a writer of 
mystery stories or creator of oil 
paintings. We are certain that 
this quiet and sandy haired lad 
will make a place for himself 
in this world! 


RICHARD PITTMAN 

"Dude of dudes" is Richard 
(Boy Scout, Sea Scout, Scouter 
of Girls) Pittman. When not 
engrossed in his scouting activi- 
ties, he finds time to "court" 
the fair damsels of old Newport 
High in a "Valentino you could 
take a few lessons" style. 





MARY PARKS 

The employer who advertises 
for an efficient and well- 
groomed secretary that can 
type, take shorthand, and re- 
mind him of his wife's birthday, 
will be lucky indeed if he hires 
Mary. Headed for a career is 
this vivacious senior who showed 
her mettle as Assistant in the 
school office. Too, when final 
averages were announced, she 
was one of the top fourteen. 



JOHN POHL 

Versatile and energetic? — 
Why, yes! One would have to 
be to excel in both basketball 
and track. This lanky lad not 
only shines in athletics, but 
also plays a mean flute for the 
high school band. Because of 
his long legs, he is appropri- 
ately called by his last name. 


MARGARET LEE PAYNE 

A dimpling smile, a charm- 
ing personality, and auburn 
hair are Margaret Lee's envied 
characteristics. Participating in 
many activities, she has shown 
ability as a leader and devo- 
tion to her school. Although 
she appears to be happy-go- 
lucky, she has displayed her 
keen mind especially in the 
field of math and science.

HARRY RICHARDSON 


GENEVIEVE PLOTTS 



Reserved — 
Intelligent — 
Capable — 

Hard working — 
Always helping — 
Rather quiet — 
Dependable — 
Sincere — 
Optimistic — 
Never quits — 


In view of her quiet dignity 
and reserved manner, Gene- 
vieve's slightly red hair comes 
as a surprise. "Still waters run 
deep" is applicable to this de- 
pendable senior. Her ready 
smile and willing hands spell 
friendship to her friends and 
service to her school. 



VALLEY ROY 

Five foot ten, blond, and 
good looking, that's a combina- 
tion to catch any girl's eye! 
Voted "Best Looking Boy" of 
our graduating class, Valley is 
now doing his bit for Uncle 
Sam. Popular among both boys 
and girls, Valley is welcome 
company wherever he goes. 



ELEANOR PULSIFER 

Chic and vivacious can well 
describe our own Eleanor Pul- 
sifer. Her dark beauty com- 
bined with her winning person- 
ality are sure to "set the world 
on fire." With an attractive 
singing voice and many other 
talents, Eleanor is an integral 
part of our Senior Class. "Love 
that girl!" 


NANCY REA 

"The Skater's Waltz" might 
well be Nancy's theme song, 
for she would rather skate than 
eat. She's an expert at sewing 
and really dresses in style. 
Pretty brown hair, a pretty 
face, and a pretty smile add 
up to a pretty girl with a pleas- 
ing personality. 




ROBERT SAVARESE 

By working in a drug store, 
"Doc" Savarese has obtained 
an amazing knowledge con- 
cerning medicine and chemis- 
try. Always joking, he is des- 
tined to possess his own store 
where the neighborhood gang 
will spend time getting the lat- 
est prescriptions, complete with 
jokes. 


m" 



GERALDINE ROGERS 

"Gentlemen prefer blondes" 
is the saying; but, when a 
blonde has deep blue eyes and 
a charming personality, this 
saying is especially so. Wavy 
tresses distinguish the tall, 
slender Geraldine who always 
has a cheerful smile and greet- 
ing for all. 


RICHARD SCHOCK 

Unassuming and most ac- 
commodating, Richard is one 
of those persons who will do the 
many everyday tasks and never 
complain or expect praise. Cool 
blue eyes and a "Schock" of 
black hair fascinate all the 
girls. 



TWENTY-EIGHT 


ELAINE SATISKY 



Smooth looks, smooth danc- 
ing, smooth personality plus a 
deep appreciation of beauty 
and a keen sense of responsi- 
bility — that's "Bootsie." She 
successfully combined business 
and pleasure by becoming salu- 
tatorian as well as receiving 
the class vote for best dancer. 


JACK SESLER 

Hear that sweet trumpet? 
Yes, it's 'Harry James" Sesler, 
the genius on the horn. Bub- 
bling over with good humor, he 
has a smile for most and a 
wisecrack for everyone. 



BETTY SAVAGE 

Tall, dignified, and sweet 
are words invented to describe 
Betty; of these, sweet leads the 
procession. Since she is a good 
scholar, she has met the re- 
quirements of the commercial 
courses and has acquired the 
reputation of living up to re- 
sponsibilities. 



CARROL SHELOR 

Carrol, always pleasant and 
reserved, is a real friend — a 
friend anyone would be proud 
to have. His sparkling eyes 
show that he can be lots of fun, 
for he has that certain "some- 
thing" called personality. 


JACKSON SMITH 

Jovial —

Cooperative — 

Klicks on tuba —

Nimble basketeer — 
Straightforward —

VIVIAN SILVER 

Almost any morning, "Viv," 
Girls' Sports reporter could be 
seen in 118 hard at work on 
some article for the Beacon. 
Her blonde head bob seemed to 
be in unison with her pencil. 
She will be remembered for her 
sincerity and willingness to 
work. 



BILL SMITH 

Irish thru and thru, Bill re- 
tains many characteristics of 
folk from the Emerald Isle. Both 
fun loving and hard working, 
he has made a good impression 
on many of us. Never happier 
than when astride a speeding 
motor cycle. Bill's love of fast 
movement is reflected in his in- 
terest from the Va. State 
Guards to machine shop. 


ANNA LAURA STAINBACK 

"Annie Laurie," with "Dark 
Eyes" and Smilin' Through" 
during her "School Days," used 
to say "Take Me Out to the 
Ball Game." When she walked 
in "The Easter Parade," every- 
one said, "My Dreams Are 
Getting Better All the Time." 



TWENTY-NINE 



JOE SOLTZ 

The man with the bronze 
body has done a great job on 
Newport's track teams. Every- 
body knows and likes him; for 
he makes friends with people 
from the loneliest "rat" to the 
most dignified teacher. 


ALICE VOLHEIN 

Alice was most likely to be 
found in our school library as- 
sisting in the business of the 
day. Efficiency and sincerity 
are marked characteristics of 
all her work. 



BOOKIE STENNETT 

Atlas, Hamlet, Tibbett, and 
Costello — what a combina- 
tion — but that is Bookie. This 
unusual boy holds three letters 
in football, acted in our last 
spring play, is a lusty singer in 
the mixed chorus, and keeps 
the whole school in eternal 
hysterics. In addition to pos- 
sessing these talents, he is also 
an earnest admirer of art — 
particularly pin up pictures! 


LOIS WILKINS 

Our purple hearts wander 
up to the infirmary to have 
"angel" Lois bandage their 
cuts and bruises. In her off 
hours, this blue-eyed, brown- 
haired favorite makes the skat- 
ing rink her hang-out, for she 
is an ardent skating fan. 



ESTHER WEISS 

Ever-changing hair styles and 
clothes transform Esther from 
the glamorous to the demure, 
and vice-versa. We predict that 
she will be the delight of chore- 
ographers with her auburn hair, 
figure, and dancing feet; or if 
she chooses, she can manipu- 
late a typewriter and handle 
the business end of any organi- 
zation. 


JOHN STILLEY 

If we find a tack in our seat 
or are stung with a paper wad, 
we are inclined to look in John's 
direction. "Mop," as the boys 
affectionately call him, is our 
favorite prankster. He makes a 
big noise in government class 
trials; for, as a defense attor- 
ney, he is tops. With his sail 
boat, radio shop, and girls, 
John has his outside time well 
filled. 



BESSIE WILT 

Short, dark haired, little Bes- 
sie Wilt with a dimple in her 
chin can be found almost any 
time at the skating rink. Be- 
hind her dark eyes, Bessie has 
an ambition to excel in the 
commercial world. Her small 
stature makes her dignity none 
the less impressive. 


VICTOR TAYLOR 

This tall and blond young 
man has talent written in his 
physical features. His long, 
slim, finely tapered fingers, 
genteel facial expression, and 
a generally delicate appearance 
all give the impression of be- 
longing to a musician. Victor 
has more than a talent for mu- 
sic, especially the piano; he 
has, we predict, the makings 
of a true artist. 



THIRTY 


BETTY MAE WOOTEN 


MARVIN TERRY 



A pleasant personality, a de- 
lightful smile and an all-round 
good sport describe quiet, petite 
Betty Mae. She is an honor 
student and a real whiz at tak- 
ing dictation. Never in too big 
a hurry to give a friendly greet- 
ing and always willing to help, 
Betty Mae has endeared her- 
self to both faculty and stu- 
dents. 


Like Terry in The Pirates, 
our "Terry" is destined to fly 
'em high; for, the boy from 
Danville is airminded. It seems 
he wants to be a pilot some day 
and even pilot a rocket ship. 



KATHERINE ZAVITSANOS 

Her Latin type of beauty 
brought a welcome bright touch 
to the Anchor room as her busy 
fingers typed out copy. A busi- 
ness career won't hold her long, 
we predict, because with or 
without a course in cooking 
Katherine is sure to find the 
way to a man's heart. 



THEODORE THEODORSEN 

He's gone but not forgotten. 
Leaving the respected position 
he had earned for himself in 
high school, Dodo entered the 
Merchant Marine in April. Out- 
standing on the athletic field, 
in the classroom, and as stu- 
dent body president, he left an 
indelible imprint of his ready 
smile and enthusiasm. Theo- 
dore means "gift of God" and 
the name is well placed in 
Dodo's case. 


IVY DEAN THOMAS 

Ivy Thomas is the "Ten 
O'clock Scholar" who made up 
for the lost time when he was 
turned loose in shop class. 
Judging from the varied proj- 
ects that have come from his 
capable hands, we would say 
he has a niche waiting in the 
trade world. Since he will be 
a handy man to have around 
the house, he'd better look out 
for leap year. 



RICHARD WILSTED 

With an unusual smile and 
swagger, Richard exhibits a 
pleasing personality as he walks 
about the halls. In classes, he's 
superior and on the outside he's 
"tops." Possessed of a warm 
sense of humor, Richard is usu- 
ally at the wrong end of the 
jokes.

Yes, he will do the hard cut- 
ting work. Serious minded, com- 
petent, pleasant, Herbert will 
not only get much from the 
world but will also give much 
to it.

Dear Diary 

(Excerpts from the diary of a graduating senior) 


Jan. 31 — Seniors, mighty seniors at last! What a difference 
between the new dignity put on by us 4-H's and that usually bewildered 
appearance of the "rats" on the first day of the new semester. 

Feb. 1 — "And the tears flowed like wine" or vice-versa as we bade 
adieu to the February "Grads" at the Armory dance after their com- 
mencement exercises. 

Feb. 2 — Cheers at basketball game for our victory were interrupted 
by the rival team as it scored the winning point; we came out with the 
low end of the 19-18 score. 

Feb. 5 — Class held first conference and honored Kent Miller as 
our unanimous choice for president. Also in the "Big Six" were Si Nelms 
as vice-president; Anne Burton, secretary; Betty Harp, treasurer; Nelson Overton, Executive 
Board representative; and Olga Critzos, class speaker. 

Feb. 6 — Dr. Cornelia W. Segar took the title today of sponsor of the class of June '45. 
"Doc" has some girl friends, too! 

Feb. 8 — "Best this" and "best that" were elected in Hall of Fame: much weeping and 
wailing and gnashing of teeth as seniors lament their fate in not having been chosen 
the "Best." 

Feb. 12 — As of today Royden Goodson and Herbert Bateman are to be called "Your 
Honor"; they have just been elevated to school's supreme court, the Honor Council. 

Feb. 13 — Bang ! Thought someone was shooting Coach Conn or being shot by 

him, but Mr. Conn was onlv giving the starting signal for a dash during inside track prac- 
tice. Never thought I'd see the day these halls of NNHS would have any hazards other 
than that of roving "wolves." 

Feb. 17 — "Practice makes perfect." Theory proved by track team in running away 
with state indoor meet. Visions of better things to come. Record smashed as strong, silent 
Hastings Hawk threatens to throw "shot" out of building. 

Feb. 28 — The first BEACON of the semester, a six page one, finally came off press 
into the hands of anxiouslv awaiting students. 

Feb. 22 — Thanks, George Washington, for being the father of our country! Holiday! 

March 2 — Saw many happv faces as folk turned from bulletin 
board. Curiosity aroused went to look too. Grinned also. My 
name was on it the tentative graduation list. 

March 16 — BEACON turned green: I thought Mr Thompson 
had run out of black ink. No, only St. Pattv's day. 

March 20 — Vernal eguinox, 7:28 E.W.T. "Tis Spring." Have 
been slowlv dragaing self around accordinalv. 

March 23 — Music deoartment of NNHS presented patriotic 
Dageant "To Make Men Free." Featured were overalls and straw 
hats bv lads and lasses in "Ye Old Virainia Reel." 

March 29 — Seems as though we have auite a few newcomers in our school. Natur- 
ally we would not want them to feel lost or forsaken so seniors from the various activities 
held a special assembly and told our new neighbors all about everything. 

April 6 — A big dav! The Literarv Club presented the 7th War Loon Drive Assembly 
with the Armv Services Forces 1202 Technical Service Unit Transportation Cotds as a 
special guest of honor. Past work was praised and aoal set for the 7th at $50,000 bv a 
representative of the Community War Loan group. No more ice cream and candv for 
the next six weeks. Oh well I was trying to find a simple wav to reduce anyway. There 
were lumps in manv throats and guite a few tears in the eves as Private 
Lionel Escude sang "Roger Young." Oh what a beautifimous man. 

Had just dreamed up divine wav of managing a date with him when 
was informed of tragic event. It seems that mv dream man was already 
married. Oh cruel cruel fate! 

April 7 — We were supposed to have a track meet with Maury, I 
thought, but apparently it was a meet held among the members of our 
own NNHS track team. We took all the firsts and almost all the 
seconds. Points — N. N. 99 . . . Maury 18. Where are you, Maury? 



No homework! Gloat! 


GRAD 7 LISTS 




FIFTY-TWO 


April 9 — Latin Club assembly! "Oh, what fools these mortals be!" 

Will you ever forget Miss Maguire's skit and Villain Stanley, the hard, 
cruel mortgage holder. 

April 12 — A day never to be forgotten in the history of man — the 
day our President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, died. 

April 13 — Assembly held for the nomination of school officers. 

"Dodo" Theodorsen told us goodbye as he prepared to leave for the 
Merchant Marine Academy. We'll all miss him. 

April 16 — A favored few today took the Pepsi Cola Scholarship Exams. 

A good chance for some likely student. Discussion assembly today on 
candidates for school office. My My! An outsider accidentally wandering in would have 
believed himself to be in the National Convention of one of the political parties. Well, 
it's all in a day's work. The office was the scene of a miniature riot as seniors clambered 
for their newly arrived graduation rings. 

April 17 — How much is your "John Henry" worth in print? 50c? The Anchor is at 
it again. Won't you please buy your signature? 

April 20 — Still marveling at performance of characters in last night's play "Tomor- 
row the World." Am convinced that definite talent lies beneath the "bobby sox" and 
"sloppy sweaters" of many. Entering the home stretch now as second marking period 
ends. Two down and one to go. The closest election of school officers in years took 
place today. Bobby Stortz had no opposition, but it was a "photo finish" for Forrest 
and Sawyer. 

April 21 — They did it again! Track team won Tidewater Meet with the greatest 
of ease. 

April 23 — Red Letter Day! Was conscience stricken and hung head quietly while 
receiving character analysis from Dr. Grace Sloan Overton who was presented to our 
school. That woman knows more about me than I do. 

April 27 — The history department decided that it would hold a little parley on the 
San Francisco Conference for the benefit and enlightenment of the students. Was duly 
enlightened. 

April 30- — Margaret Lee Payne was chosen senior musician. Guess my hidden talent 
was too well hidden. 

May 1 — Oh, remorseful day! Why was I born? Why was our order for stiff covers 
for the Anchor cancelled? Oh, well, there's nothing more beautiful than a nice paper cover. 

May 4 — Enjoyed annual concert. Mayerimski Binderofski was 
convincing as Russian composer. Those Russians really travel fast, 
don't they? 

May 7 — Our "brain children" announced today. Olga Critzos 
grabbed first honors while Elaine Satisky came in for a close second. 
Mother just can't understand why her little sunbeam could not head 
the list. Parents just don't seem to understand. Herbert Bateman 
was elected class speaker to replace Olga, now valedictorian. 

May 8 — V. E. Day at last! Significant that victory should come 
almost at graduation time. Both wanted desperately. 

May 10 — Track boys got reward for labors. Monogram molls also received letters. 
Oh, for the life of an athlete. 

May 18 — After much racking of feeble brain and many sleepless nights, finally 
managed to hand in term paper. Should get "A" for labor and effort if nothing else. 
Hope Miss Burbank sees this before grading said manuscript. 

May 21 — Great Day! Mother's little sunbeam finally shone. Managed to wobble to 
stage to accompaniment of "Home, Sweet Home" very ably rendered by knees of yours 
truly to receive long awaited awards and recognition. Five grads elected to National 
Honor Society (Yes, me too) so I guess we will see some crazy goings on around ye old 
school halls. (You guessed it, more initiations). 

May 28 — Sent out invitations today. Hope no one fails to take the hint and that 
all relatives are feeling extremely generous. 

May 31 — First graduation event, senior assembly, was a combination 
of tears and laughter. Tomorrow's talent and performers were displayed 
and Wicke, the M. C., was duly chosen the "poor man's Bob Hope." 

June 3 — Inspired by Reverend T. V. Morrison's message at Bacca- 
laureate Sermon. Feel that I really have a stake in our country's future. 

June 6 — One more day to go. Gee, if it only were a thousand. 

Tonight's class night exercises a credit to class. Ernest's play was a scream. 

June 7 — Here it is, "The last for which the first was made." Yep, 
after eleven years, graduation from high school and what a wonderful 
school it is. Long will we remember the teachers and administration 
who guided us through our last four years of school. Wish I were starting 
as a "rat" instead of finishing as a "grad."

History of Our Team 

Unfurling the '45 season under the leader- 
ship of Captain Eddie Cooper, the Typhoon 
brushed aside several powerful services quints 
to gain much needed experience and con- 
fidence. 

Then a hip injury benched Captain Cooper, 
when he was most needed, and the Typhoon 
bowed to its rivals across the river: Maury, 
Granby and Wilson. 

Despite losses, Hopkins and Stortz com- 
bined their sharpshooting talent with the 
speedy footwork of Morris and Walker and 
kept the team fighting every minute. The 
lanky forms of Forrest and Pohl were to be 
seen everywhere at once breaking up their 
opponents offensive. 

Hours of gruelling practice began to bear 
fruit; for the cagers came back at their rivals 
with renewed vigor to emerge as one of the 
strongest and most respected teams in the 
state. 

Although their early record prevented them 
from being a contender for the state title, 
they had much to say in deciding the cham- 
pion. 


Junior Varsity 

Coached by J. C. "Cowboy" Range, the 
baby Typhoon with Captain Presson as spark 
plug came up with an impressive record by 
whipping many of the city's formidable teams.

son, and Rabinowitz, managers; Roane, Cooper, Merrill, Hahn, Roberts, Meekins, Atwell. Top row — Coaches Harry Harmon, 
Julius Conn, J. C. Range. 


A Team Makes History 


Throughout the state, track fans 
who have an interest in high school 
competition have joined to praise 
the 1945 edition of the NNHS har- 
riers. 

From the ease .with which the 
Cold and Blue thinclads took the 
state indoor track title at Char- 
lottesville, it was evident that a fine 
team was coming from Newport 
High. As the season continued, it 
became unanimous that this team 
was the best ever produced in the 
ten or more years that NNHS has 
dominated Virginia High School 
track competition. 

The Typhooners were victorious 
in all their class A meets, topping 
Maury and Granby in dual contests 
and taking the Tidewater and East- 
ern district meets with ease, almost 
doubling the number of points tal- 
lied by their closest competitors. 
And for the first time in school 
history, the locals captured the "C" 
Club meet honors in Washington, 
D. C., facing crack squads from the 


entire Eastern seaboard. Only once 
did the Cold and Blue Men taste de- 
feat — that was when they climbed 
out of their class and tackled the 
Plebes at the U. S. Naval Academy 
at Annapolis. However, the Typhoon 
surprised its many fans even in this 
meet by copping six first places and 
several thirds. 

Captain Theodore Theodorsen, 
star miler and pole vaulter, entered 
the Merchant Marine academy 
early in the season, and. his post 
was ably filled by Hastings Hawk, 
weight artist, wbo continued his 
scoring ways, averaging more than 
12 points per meet. A more per- 
fectly shaped track team will be 
hard to find; it is with justifiable 
pride that we hereby salute it as 
a championship outfit, worthy of 
representing the school. Congratu- 
lations are due Coach Julius Conn 
for the fine job he did of moulding 
an unbeatable squad — may he con- 
tinue to do so.
