THE 

TAPORAPIAN 

’61 






FOREWORD 



Nineteen hundred and sixty-one, a colorful and 
eventful year, brings to Tappahannock High 
School its twenty-third yearbook - The 1961 
Taporapian. 

If each of us was asked what we remembered 
most about this year, there would be many dif- 
ferent people or situations which would come to 
mind. The Taporapian can never hope to fill 
its pages with EVERY memory but can only at- 
tempt to keep intact those which are most out- 
standing in various fields of our school life. 

We, the annual staff, have strived to do our best 
in preparing this yearbook with the hope that, in 
the future, it will help you relive your high 
school days and keep alive those memories 
which you cherish. 

With these thoughts in mind, we proudly present 
to you, the students and faculty of Tappahan- 
nock, the 1961 Taporapian.

MR. CHARLES SEBRA 


We, the Seniors of 1961, proudly dedicate this annual to one who has devotedly 
striven, by example as well as instruction, to teach us the principles of good citizen- 
ship, that by being well-informed, we may serve more fully our community, our 
state and our nation. His patient and understanding guidance has inspired us to aim 
for higher and worthier goals. Therefore, we gratefully acknowledge the contribu- 


tions of Mr. Charles Sebra.

September, 1957 - As freshmen, we enter high school, eager to learn, eager 
to be a part of the high school crowd. Everyone considers us babies - espe- 
cially the Seniors. We meet new friends from the other two elementary 
schools in the county. 

September, 1958 - We're not exactly babies anymore, but we've got a long 
way to go. We're becoming an active part, a necessary part of the school' 
activities. We're growing more mature - emotionally and physically as well 
as mentally. We look forward to our Junior year with great anticipation. 
September, 1959 - We have become upperclassmen. We start thinking about 
college which leads us to College Day. We will attend the Junior -Senior 
Prom - we will give the Seniors a banquet. We are looked up to by the un- 
derclassmen, which gives us a big thrill. 

September, 1960 - Our Senior year! We finally make it to the top rung of 
the ladder leading to further education and to careers. We show our rings to 
everyone within seeing range! We start our money-making projects for our 
trip to New York! We give the Juniors a Prom - our last affair with them. 

We start rehearsal for the Senior Play, hoping it will be as great a success as 
in past years. Then, on to New York, for what will be the second in a line 
of trips to New York. 

And then, June, 1961, commencement - the beginning of a new and strange 
life.

This training is done by functioning committees in such areas as 
safety, welfare, grounds and building, well planned and varied pro- 
grams. These programs are given at eight of the monthly meetings. 
The other month is given to legal voting, setting up and maintaining 
poles.

This year, for the first time, Tappahannock has had a school band. It is directed by Mr. 
Louis Hamada. Since September the band has made great accomplishments and the future seems 
bright for those who are taking part in it. 

The high school chorus is also under the direction of Mr. Hamada. The students participat- 
ing in the class find it most enjoyable. They learn much about the fundamentals of music as 
well as find pleasure in singing. 

The two groups have appeared at various times throughout the year at school and public af- 
fairs. The courses are quite rewarding and the future seems bright for both groups.

SOFTBALL ’60 



The girls' softball team of 1960 concluded a most successful season emerging as District 
Champions. The team was led all the way by the outstanding pitching of co-captain Mary 


Christopher backed by such able players as veteran Ann Harewick at center field and co-captain, 
Bessie Loving at third base, Cora Moore at short stop, Danna Dickinson at left field and catcher 
Betty Page Carlton. To the experienced and hard playing group were some newcomers who 
quickly proved their worth; Carol Tuck, a freshman who played second base, Betty Jean Watson 
at right field and Betty Taylor at first base. Connie Fogg, Betty McTyre, Medora Cheatham 
and Smitty Taylor rounded out our championship team. Congratulations for a good season.

In eight games, the Warriors came out with two wins, five losses and one tie. Although never 
completely outclassed in any of their games, they had offensive troubles all year and were able to score 
only five times. This was undoubtedly due to a completely green backfield that played well but lacked 
the so necessary experience. The line, paced by veterans William Langford, Newton DeShazo, Peyton 
Motley, Stuart Woodland and Bobby Burch, was the strong point. 

In District competition, Tappahannock fared very well, winning two of three. They lost to Lan- 
caster 6-0, blowing several fine scoring opportunities, and then beat Northumberland 6-0 and W. & L. 
19-0. Their 2-1 District mark gave them a three-way tie for first in the District despite their over-all 
record. 

This was one of the youngest Warrior squads in years. It was composed of eleven freshmen, seven 
sophomores and the rest juniors and seniors. Led by Co-Captains DeShazo and Motley and Coaches 
Ashton and Robertson, the squad began to develop slowly during the year and towards the end began to 
show some depth. The loss of Jimmy Haile, a good running freshman halfback, hurt the backfield con- 
siderably but the development of Jimmy Beasley, Bryan Taliaferro, Jackie Weiss, and Tommy Taliafarro 
helped take up the slack. 

The Warriors usually started DeShazo and Motley at the ends, John Moon and John Rennolds at the 
tackles. Woodland and Burch at the guards, William Langford at center. Tommy Harding at quarter, 
Bryan Taliaferro and Haile at the halves, and Bob Mann at fullback. With the injury to Haile, Jimmy 
Beasley stepped in at full and Mann went to half. The backfield, with luck, could be a good one next 
year. Reserves who saw much action were Frank Brooks, Calvin Baughan and John Haile. 

If these boys stick together, they could be T appahannock' s best football team in a year or two.

BASEBALL ’60 



The Warriors, after a miserable start, came on fast in the second half of their 
schedule to make it a pleasant season. After losing four of their first five, they then 
won four of their last five, including three district games to earn a first place tie in 
Division A of District F. Forced into a three-way play-off to break the tie, the War- 
riors drew the long way home when they had to play W. & L. and Northumberland on 
successive afternoons. They got by W. & L. 2-1 in a fine ball game played at Warsaw, 
but were eliminated by Northumberland the next day 5-1 on their own field. In this 
one the Warriors led 1-0 until one was out in the seventh and final Inning only to see 
the roof cave in. 

Tappahannock usually fielded a line-up of Wayne Johnson or Newton DeShazo pitch- 
ing, Joe Chinn catching, an infield of Billy Taliaferro, Tommy Harding, Dickie Elliott 
and Lou Flannagan, and an outfield of Peyton Motley, John Stevens, Bob Mann or Don 
Lynch. The leadership of seniors Lou Flannagan and Billy Taliaferro, the pitching of 
Johnson and DeShazo, the hitting of Flannagan, Motley, Johnson and Chinn and some 
fine fielding by Elliott, Stevens and Harding all added up to make it the good season 
that it was.

With fine teamwork and determination the girls' basketball squad climaxed the 
season as winner in their division and second in the district. Outstanding was the de- 
fensive playing of the guard section led by Kitty Burruss, Karen Parker, Carol Ann De- 
lano and Boots Barton. Their consistent pressure on their opponents led the team to 
victory in many tight situations. High scoring forward of the year was Danna Dickin- 
son averaging 21 points a game. She was ably assisted by Medora Cheatham, Hylah 
Haile and Dina Lane. Congratulations to all squad members.

BASKETBALL ’61 



Coming off an all losing season in 1959-60 and with a thin, inexperienced squad, the Warriors 
seemed destined for another long winter. But although they did not have a winning record with their 
four wins and five losses, they did much better than anticipated at the start. After rough going in their 
opening game, they came along to split their next eight games and actually were in the thick of the 
district race until their final game. Their finest achievement was the upset of Northumberland the 
second time around after the Indians had beaten them so badly the first time. It was also the first time 
a Warrior team had beaten the Indians in basketball. 

Robbie Waring and Peyton Motley (co -captains), John Moon, Tommy Harding, and Jimmy Haile 
made up the starting five on most occasions. John Rennolds, Alwyn Davis and Roger Brown saw quite 
a bit of sub duty. Waring was high scorer. Moon and Motley the leading rebounders, and Harding and 
Haile provided a pair of competent back-court men. The team played very well defensively as the 
score indicates, rebounded well, but had trouble scoring enough themselves. Yet all in all, it was a 
good year.
