There she stands, the outward symbol of 
friendship and peace, protecting the doors of 
our nation from intruders. Her name implies 
her ideals; we are justly proud of the Statue of 
Liberty. 

In view of the conflict in foreign countries, 
and the liberties denied European peoples, we, 
the staff members, have chosen as the theme of 
our yearbook, "patriotism and freedom." 

We February 1941 graduates of the New- 
port News high school feel proud that now we 
may participate more fully in the various pro- 
grams afforded the American people by their 
democratic government. Graduates look for- 
ward to becoming active American citizens. 
After graduation, we shall realize better that 
we are a small but important part of the great- 
est government on earth. 

It is ours "to hold high" the torch of demo- 
cracy that still shines brightly in a world of dark 
chaos. Statue of Liberty, we return your salute!

M. J. BYRNE 

To the Class of February, 1941: 

In the past few months many new and revolutionary changes have 
come into being in the world. Since this Beacon has as its theme “patrio- 
tism”, it is only fitting that we should consider the role of our own patrio- 
tism as it is affected by these changes. 

You who are about to be graduated will have excellent opportunity in 
the next few months to change from high school students to responsible 
citizens. You will take your place as workers in a democratic society that 
is rapidly preparing itself for self-preservation. My advice to you is to do 
all within your power, and that is more than you think, to do all you can as 
patriotic citizens to realize the fulfillment of this defense program, and 
thus preserve our American way of living. 

M. J. Byrne.

WILLIAM B. KIRK 


He came to Newport News High School from the State Teachers’ 
College at West Chester, Pennsylvania. 

For the past two years he has been adviser to both the Beacon Weekly 
and the Beacon Annuals. This excellent adviser has furthered journalistic 
work in our high school. He is not only the adviser of the school paper and 
the annual books, but also the teacher of journalism in the school. It is 
through him that the members of the present annual staff as well as many 
other students have learned the real importance of originality and respon- 
sibility. 

The staff of the February, 1941 Beacon Annual takes great pleasure 
in dedicating this book to William B. Kirk, faculty adviser of the Beacon.

Our friendships made while here.

And Now for a FARRY Story 

Once upon a time there was a little girl named GOLDEN-locks. Her 
hair was long and KERLIN. As she was strolling through the FORREST 
one bright and CLEARY day the ROBBINS and the Bob-O-LINKs were 
chirping merrily. Suddenly something CROSS-ed her path ; she stumbled 
and hurt her SHINN and SCULL. And was she SHOCKLEY! She 
picked herself up and BECAN to go on her way happi-LEIGH. She 
PASS-ed by Red Riding Hood’s home, but she had gone out with the 
MILLER, and BAKER, the MAYER, and the TAYLOR. They had gone 
to see The BISHOP Misbehaves, at the WELLS theatre. ELLIS too bad 
I have to go alone. The THOMAS passing on and the skies were getting 
GRAY ; so she ran. Too late, she reached her grandmother’s, be-COSBY 
the FOX had eaten her. As she was lowered into HARGRAVE, GOLDEN- 
locks uttered the prayer : 

“Here lies Grandma 
Now on the road to glory 
Goodbye Grandma, 

I’m in the wrong story!”
