From Ron Miller ('59) of NC - 03/24/05:

Hi Carol -- I just have to tell a story on myself and Aretie Gallins Danley Patterson - '59 - of the 51st State:
Northern VA.
 
I can't remember now what grade it was -- 9th, I think -- but she decided to run for class secretary. She twisted
my arm (it still hurts where she twisted!) and asked me to draw up a poster for her campaign.
 
Well, I did, and I think everybody in the school, faculty included, noticed that I misspelled "Secratary" before
either Aretie or I noticed it. Duhhhhh! Talk about embarrassing! Right there in HUGE letters, where you
couldn't miss it!
 
Needless to say, I haven't misspelled "secretary" since. Anyway, Aretie must have forgiven me, because she still
speaks to me.  :-o)

   What a great story!  Thanks, Ronnie - and keep reading!  GIGGLES!


From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 03/24/05:

Hi, Carol:
Jimmy Hines ('64) of VA has a very good memory of Ernie Shaffer being an outstanding Table Tennis player. I believe
it was "Both", his foam rubber padded paddle and his ability. Also, his fast twist of the wrist could put lots of "English"
on that small sphere to make it go off the table top at strange angles. His movements were very quick, all while holding a
pipe in his mouth and removing it only to smile at his opponent chasing the ball around the Recreation Center.
The gentleman Jimmy observed on the 3-Meter Diving Board warming up, was most likely Ray Badger who performed
for the crowd just before the annual bathing beauty contest took place.
This former Newport News Police Officer and Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad Detective wore a clown costume for his
session to stay in shape with his routine, when there were very few spectators or bathers. Our concern was that someone
might try to imitate his diving board tricks, one of which was to appear to miss the board with one foot, and swing
under the board, and swing back up on top of the board and then fall off. He had great strength and agility. He was
championship swimmer, and also enjoyed skating.
The annual bathing beauty contest was a big event, and I wonder if anyone else remembers them. You may recall the
contestants strolled around the entire circumference of the pool deck, and did a 360 degree circle at each of the corners.
Always,
Adonis

   Thanks, Adonis!  I knew you'd know the details of that story!

   I remember those bathing beauty contests........


From Tom Oxner ('65) of AR - 03/24/05:

The Whataburger logo sent to you by Joe Madagan ('57 of FL) is the logo of the Whataburger chain of fast food restaurants.
The What-A-Burger on Jefferson (it used to be by the ESSO station at the traffic circle; it is now slightly further north
on Jefferson) was not and is not a part of the Whataburger chain. The What-A-Burger on Jefferson was the brainchild
of Paul Branch. From the photos in the What-A-Burger it also had locations in Richmond and in South Carolina. I ate there
just last week when I visited my sister in Newport News during Spring Break.

Tom Oxner

   OOOPS!  Thanks, Tom - keep reading!


Also from Fred Eubank ('64) of TX - 03/24/05:

Carol,

I read the Joe Madagan ('57 - of FL) piece on What-A-Burger and offer the following observations.  I too remember
that Jefferson Avenue What-a-Burger (WAB) restaurant, and ate many a great hamburger there in the late 1960s.  Naturally
when I moved to San Antonio in 2003, and saw the many orange and white chalet roof-style WABs that populate the Alamo City,
I had to stop by for a burger.  After concluding that the San Antonio WABs reminded me a lot of the Newport News WABs I had
enjoyed almost 40 years earlier, as well as the striped, orange and white chalet-style roof, I began to wonder if they were one
and the same company.  I discovered that the San Antonio WABs belong to a company created by Harman Dobson in 1950.  He
apparently opened the first WAB in Corpus Christie, TX, in August of that year.  I went to the WAB web site and read the
company history (http://www.whataburger.com/wbstory.cfm  and http://www.whataburger.com/timeline50.cfm?timeline=50)
I may have missed it, but I could nothing to indicate that the Dobson WAB chain ever had a restaurant in Newport News, or
in Virginia for that matter.  It appears they are located only in AZ, NM, TX, OK, AR, LA, MS, AL, GA and FL.  I guess Joe has
seen plenty of WABs in FL, they have 25 or 30 there.  I was certainly disappointed that I could find no confirmation the old NN
WAB was part of the original Harman Dobson chain.  However, I do remember they had great hamburgers, and my mind may be
playing tricks on me (Iím nearly 60 years old, you know), but I swear that old Jefferson Avenue What-a-Burger looked a lot like
the one in Joe Madaganís 03/24/05 Newsletter article. 

Fred Eubank
San Antonio, TX 

   Thanks, Fred!  And ya know what, Gentlemen?  I knew that, too!  Or at least, I knew it last year when I did the initial research
for the page.  But that was then, and this is now....  Sigh...... 

   So I just redesigned the page to look like this:

   Now if my mind slips again, we'll still have all that data!  Thanks again, Fellas!


From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 03/24/05:

Hi, Carol:
Ernie (Shaffer) and Paul (Burroughs) were the best of friends. Paul would drop by an have lunch with Ernie a couple
of times a week. They usually went over to Roger's Confectionary for a hot dog, across the street from Arnold's Esso
Station
on 25th Street and Oak Avenue. When others tagged along, we were fortunate to hear the great stories of these
two gentlemen.
Always,
Joe

   WOW.  Thanks for sharing that with us, Joe.  Sometimes those simple memories are the warmest. 


From Jo Ann Stewart ('64) of TX - 03/24/05:

Ok, can someone tell me when Bobby Bloxom ('64 - of VA) became "Brooks" Bloxom.  Oh "Brooks" - you'll always
be Bobby to me!!

   GIGGLES!!!  Thanks, Jo Ann!  I don't know the when or the why, but I do know two or three things.  There are quite a few
among us who no longer use the same name we did in high school.  When we were listing those who were planning to attend
the Glorious Reunion, I wrote "Bobby", and Dave Spriggs ('64 - of VA) corrected me, and said he now preferred to be called
"Brooks", so I changed it.

   But on Friday night, just as we were leaving, I realized that I had neither spoken to him, nor given him my card, and I came up
from behind him, and instinctively said, "Bobby", having known him since way back at Magruder School.  He turned and
answered me, but then looked at me with that, "Do I know you?" look (which I did not acknowledge).  Sigh.  It seems I am highly
forgettable, but I'll get over it.

   No, I won't.  WILD GIGGLES!!!

   Joe Madagan, do you mean to tell me that after all that long discussion and input from so many people that I never corrected
that error?!?  Oh, no - I can't look.  It's just too embarrassing.  Oh, all right, I'll look.

From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL to Bobby Turpin ('58) of VA - 03/24/05:

Hi, (Bobby and) Carol:
During the Virginia State Championship Tournament in 1957 in Richmond the TYPHOON encountered a most unusual
circumstance. From the initial tip off, of the Second Round contest, E. C. Glass of Lynchburg froze the ball, not even
attempting to shoot a basket unless it was lay up. E. C. Glass continued to freeze the ball in a four corner offense for the
entire game. The final score was NNHS 43 and E. C. Glass 29. The entire game was nerve wracking because of the slow
rhythm of the game which was the way Glass wanted to control the fast breaking TYPHOON who could run the socks off
any team. The strategy by Glass did not prevail because not only was the TYPHOON a great fast break team, they also
had a good record of stealing the ball, and did so during this game which provided most of the points for NNHS. Of course,
when Glass did score it gave NNHS a chance for a goal but so often one of our players was fouled to prevent a field goal.
This was the most exhausting game of the season and it makes me tired just remembering it.
 
It would be interesting to learn the impression of Bobby Turpin of this slow paced game.
Always,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

   It would, indeed, Adonis!

   Well, looky here!  GIGGLES!!!


From Bobby Turpin ('58) of VA  to Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 03/24/05 and Evelyn Fryer Keller Fish ('58) of TX:

Thanks, for the e-mail, Joe.  As usual your memory is right on it.  If my memory serves me correctly
the Coach of E. C. Glass's  team was Jimmy Brian.  He was to E. C. Glass what Coach Conn was to
us at NNHS.  A great longtime fixture as their basketball coach.  Coach Brian had many, many wins
at the helm of their basketball program.  Again, if my memory serves me, Coach Brian was our Coach
Bill Chambers'
high school coach as Coach Chambers was an alumnae of E. C. Glass.  I do not recall
the year Coach Chambers graduated from Glass.  No one ever out-coached or caught Coach Chambers
by surprise that I remember.  Joe, you can check with Coach Bill on his years at Glass.  The best player
on Glass's team was named Wayne Proffitt.  The press prior to the game had called him all state and
possible player of the year for '57 however, he was a non-factor in this game.  Bucky Keller ('58), as it
turned out, and rightfully so, was the Virginia high school player of the year for '57.  Joe, I do not know
why the strategy was employed either, other than the fact, Coach Brian, probably knew the only way he
could keep the game close was not to give THE TYPHOONS the ball. Glass froze the ball even after they
got behind with no chance to catch up and make a game out of it.  I really don't think any game would
have been successful against the '57 team because of the coaching and player execution of that game
plan to perfection. 
   
On another subject, I went by Warwick Travel Agency this AM and talked with Nancy Bigger Alligood
('56)
.  What a great visit!  Evelyn, she is really looking forward to the next time you guys can get together.  
A really super person. 
 
Happy Easter.  God bless to all.  
 
Regards,
 
Bobby Turpin, '58 of VA 

   Okay, Gentlemen, I've added your memories to the page.  Thanks so much for sharing them!

From Aretie Gallins Patterson ('59) of Northern VA - 03/24/05, 8:57 PM:

Dear Carol,

I donít know how you do it, but the newsletters are absolutely awesome. John and I have just gotten back
from Newport News where weíve been since Friday night (March 18) looking after my father, who is now 90
years old. Since we were away I had gotten behind on reading the newsletters.
The first one I opened tonight
was the March 24, Out of Nowhere and thatís as far as I got. Actually I didnít even get all the way through
before I stopped to write this to you. I was reading
Jimmy Hinesís ('64 - of Northern VA) letter and got
to where he mentioned Lefty Driesell. I clicked on the link. Then a little further there was a link to NNHS.
Well, that one did it, Carol. Thatís where I stopped. Having attended many high school graduations as an
assistant principal, I recognized the introduction to Pomp and Circumstance right away. I sat and listened
while I looked at the images of our old high school. As the introduction gave way to the familiar strains

at which the graduates begin their procession, I was awash in memories. I went back years in my mind and
saw the Class of
  Ď59 lined up in the hall outside the auditorium. And there was Dorothy Crane, the drama
teacher,
making sure that we were all in step. She stood in the hall by the entrance to the auditorium,
sweeping her hand in a huge arc
to keep us in step as she called out, left, right, left, right her voice
emphasizing the word left,
to make sure we all stepped forward at the same time on the correct foot. The effect
was that as the line moved up the ramp into the auditorium and down the incline to our seats, every single
tassel swayed in the same direction at the same time.
We all swayed gently to the left, then gently to the right.
Not being especially graceful nor having a good sense of rhythm, I had to watch the student in front of me. I
kept my eyes on that foot in front of me to make sure I was putting the same one forward at the same time!
When I got to my seat on the stage, I could finally
relax. From the vantage point of the stage, I could see the
rest of my classmates marching in. What an
awesome sight to behold, the line moving in perfect step and I can
tell you that it was never as magnificent, as awesome a sight at any other high school graduation that I attended,
and I attended a lot of them.
  Miss Crane also made sure that we had our graduation caps on our heads exactly
right. The front down over the forehead just so with the mortar board perfectly parallel to the ground.
And the
music, the NNHS band, with Mr. Wilsonís baton, playing that magnificent
Pomp and Circumstance. The music
on the NNHS link brought it all back to me, as if it were yesterday. Thanks for the
memories!  

I have seen Ron Millerís ('59 of NC) name on the site. I remember him from grammar school.  Does he
remember being in classes together at John W. Daniel?
Iím pretty sure we were together in fourth grade. That
would have been Miss Holtís class.
I was also in school with Mr. Connís son, Harry ('59 of VA), for 12 years.
Harry and I were in each otherís class all the way through John Daniel. Then in high school Harry and I always
had at least one class together.
His mother, Mrs. Garland Conn, was my eighth grade science teacher. Your sister,
Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC), was in that class, and sat next to me.

I enjoyed the picture of Mr. Wilson from the 2004 reunion. What a wonderful site! What wonderful newsletters!
Thank you for all your work with the newsletters.
.

I also have a Lefty Driesell story to tell. Lefty was my driverís education teacher. Do I have a story!  

Take care and God bless. Iíll be in touch again soon.

Aretie Gallins Patterson

NNHS Ď59

   Okay, Lady, you just about blew me off my chair with your letter!  Thanks so much for your kind and very moving words!

   I'm glad you're enjoying the links.  I'll admit to being link-happy, but I believe following the little blue words makes for a more
complete story.  But you really hit upon what creates the emotional power of the pages.  It's the marvelous, absolutely perfect
music chosen by Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA.

   When I first began the site back in July of 2000, and it only consisted of about ten pages, I attached music which all predated
1965, so it would have a period flavor.  And then came the expansions.  My two youngest sons (who were my principle advisors)
had all but convinced me to forego the music.  They personally do not like the sound of MIDI files, and had me convinced that they
were "unprofessional" - primarily because of their own preference.

   When David joined us in January of 2003, he began making brilliant suggestions for songs - and finding me the perfect versions
of each song - and he paid no attention to my goofy "pre-1965" rule (and I wisely never told him any such nonsense).  Dave's
contributions have been absolutely immeasurable, not only with the music and the memories, but the hundreds of images, both old
and new he has supplied.  His camera work is breathtaking, and if there's a soul out there who does not enjoy his "THEN and NOW"
shots, they've wisely chosen not to tell me!

   And in all that time, I think you're the first one to mention the absolute power of the combined effect of that music with those images. 
It's positively transporting, and I can never thank him enough for his continued help.  The site you enjoy today is what it is largely
through David's vision and tireless guidance and support.

   Your perfect description of the majesty of our graduation exercises, so meticulously orchestrated by Miss Crane, quite nearly
overcame me.  I was saved by two near-ludicrous memories of my own graduation.

   First, as we were so carefully arranged by Miss Crane according to our height, I marched in and sat between Ronnie "Peanut"
Phillips
and Mickey Spivey, two of the funniest guys I ever met.  I think they had known each other from before birth.  I first met them
when we were all together at Walter Reed for seventh grade.  Bless their hearts, they kept up a delightful, naughty, irreverent,
hysterical, whispered dialogue all through graduation exercises, while I tried desperately to somehow keep from laughing during the
solemn proceedings.  It is one of my very favorite high school memories.  If I never thanked you before, gentlemen, I'll do so now!

   Of course, there was that other major distraction....... 

   Our graduation took place on a dreadfully sticky night.  Someone decided the girls would all be more comfortable if we removed
our dresses before donning our gowns.  Sounds good and reasonable, doesn't it?  It would have been, had the gowns only been
fastened together in front lower than three inches or so above the knee.......

   Last fall we had a great running conversation about pantyhose.  Well, these were the days before the invention of pantyhose.  We
were all wearing stockings and garter belts.  I personally was wearing a boned waist cinch which I always wore except while bathing
and sleeping, which meant (in the manner of Chinese foot binding) that my waist had never grown beyond 21".  Ah, the good old days! 
And of course, we were all wearing white slips.

   But as the girls began to walk across the stage, one thing quickly became painfully obvious (or delightfully obvious, I suppose,
depending on your point of view!):and that was, "the view" itself.  With each step, the girls' gowns opened, revealing a goodly shot
of slip, leg, hose, garters - whatever!

   I was mortified!  My turn was coming soon - what was I to do?!?  A pin!  That's it - a pin could solve the problem!  But of course,
there was no pin to be had.  I had to think of something else.  Short steps - that would do it - short, slow steps!  I was saved!  And so
as I walked across the stage - ever so slowly - I revealed nothing.  But the entire complement onstage thought I was in imminent
danger of passing out!  As I passed each one in succession, they said behind frozen smiles, "Are you okay?!?"  and I kept my own
frozen smile, imperceptibly nodded my head, and made it off that stage to safety!

   I may have looked like a dweeb, but I was a COVERED dweeb!  WILD GIGGLES!!!

   Thanks so much!  I double-posted your memories:

From Sarah Puckett Kressaty ('65) of VA - 03/24/05:

Carol:  I just love the music you have added to each of the newsletters!  Keep up the good work - you're terrific!!! 
Sarah Sugah 

   Thanks, Miss Sarah!  Obviously, they take much longer to prepare, but as they're already part of the site rather than simply
emails, there was no reason not to make them more decorative.  There's that music factor again - and they're so much more
fun this way! 


Also from Aretie Gallins Patterson ('59) of Northern VA - 03/24/05, 10:37 PM:

Dear Carol,

I have now worked my way through the rest of the newsletters that I was behind on. I have so much enjoyed
the pictures of the Class of
í64 reunion. It was great to recognize names that I knew. Suddenly I realized I was
recognizing names because I was at
NNHS in 1964! I guess I have mostly thought of myself as NNHS í59
because thatís when I graduated, but in
í64 I was living my dream of returning as a teacher. As you know, I
returned
in  the school year 1962-63 as a teacher. I enjoyed the pictures of Mr. Loving, Mr. Wilson,
Mr. Etheridge, Miss Kanter,
and Mr. Reed. I remember when Mr. Reed joined the faculty. We were in the same department. Is the Ray Staton in the pictures of the reunion the same Ray Staton that lived downtown
near 32
nd Street? I think he had a sister named Nancy Staton? And Rocky Gary - Was I one of his government
teachers? Didnít he
play basketball?  And I thought my father had memory problems! Look at me here!
 

   Yes, ma'am!  Ray Staton ('64) is the brother of Nancy Staton ('61) and Mary Lou Staton ('65), who married Garland Hudson
('65)
, who played basketball with Rocky Gary ('64), who more than likely studied government with you!
 

What kind words Jim Hines ('64 - of Northern VA) said about me. Jim did not realize that I was a NNHS grad,
but
until I read his letter in the 3/21/05 newsletter, I did not realize Jim was a student at NNHS when I was
teaching there
in 1963-64! I have known Jim as a fellow teacher for years. We were in the same northern Virginia
school system for a while.
Prior to that I knew him when I worked in the York County School System. It seems we
both
  traveled to the Peninsula this past weekend, too. My, it was good to hear from Jim!

Dear Jim, thank you so much for such a nice tribute. But you know, whatever good I may have done as a teacher
or assistant principal
over the years, I owe to Ethel Gildersleeve and the NNHS teachers who taught me. I wanted
nothing more than to walk in their shoes, to follow in their footsteps and
to repay them for all they did for me,
for
all that they meant to me by giving to other students the love, patience, understanding, confidence and
knowledge they gave to me.
 

Thanks for sharing the heartwarming story about your father, and thanks for posting the picture of him
on
Omaha Beach.

I agree with what Jim Hines said referring to how Henry Hoyle ('65 - of Northern VA) put it, I am also bedazzled
getting in touch with memories and reading about people I have not seen in years.

I remember Henry Hoyle. His mother, Phoebe Hoyle, was my French teacher in 1957-58 up on the third floor
front in room 312.
I sat in the back of the room and spent a lot of time talking when I wasnít supposed to.

Because of my affinity for talking during class, I managed to garner a couple of 3ís in citizenship during my career.

Remember the citizenship comments on the report cards? They went like this: (I still have my old report cards!)

1.      His cooperative attitude and fine citizenship contribute much to the good order and progress of the class
2.      He cooperates, respects authority, and maintains self-control
3.      He respects authority, but is not always cooperative
4.      He frequently lacks courtesy and self-control and interferes with the progress of others.

Prior to the 1958-59 school year there were these additional numbers:

5.      He seriously interrupts the progress of other pupils and demoralizes the general morale of the class. His
conduct must improve in order for him to continue in class.

6.      His conduct required a suspension
7.      He was truant

Of course this was in the days before gender neutrality! I could not fathom 5. In my adolescent mind,  5 seemed
akin to criminal behavior!

Keep up the good work, Carol. You are a blessing to all of us.

   OOOH - those are scary!!!!  GIGGLES!!!

   Thanks so much!  You've no idea what an honor it is for me to do this - really!


Also from Aretie Gallins Patterson ('59) of Northern VA  - 03/24/05, 11:04 PM:

Dear Carol,
 
The photo of the Palace Theatre likely taken from the top of Leggettís Department Store in the 1957 Anchor
brought back another memory. The Florida Orange Store can be seen in the lower left side of the photo. We
bought most of our groceries there though sometimes my mother shopped at the A&P on the corner of 35th
and Washington Avenue. Later when A&P went out of business, a drugstore moved to that location from its
former location further up Washington Avenue. I think it was Standard that moved there. Standard Drug was
originally located  between 32nd and 31st Streets, next to the Mecca Restaurant. The Colonial Store was
on Huntington Avenue, a couple of blocks from NNHS. Thatís where we went in small groups from Miss Sue
Kellyís
eighth grade home economics class to buy goods for our cooking class. It seemed like such an adventure
and so grown-up to be allowed to walk to the Colonial Store!
 
Mr. Ferguson was the butcher at the Florida Orange Store. His daughter Betty Kaye went to John Daniel School
and was one of my best friends in grammar school. Mr. Blount was the produce manager. I canít remember the
name of the owner of the store but he was local. Was it Mr. Jones, maybe? Iím not sure.
 
My father, Jimmy Gallins, operated a restaurant, the Sanitary Lunch, on the corner of  31st street and
Washington Avenue across the side street from the James Theater. He sold that restaurant while I was in high
school - maybe 1954? and opened another one in North End.
 
Aretie Gallins Patterson

   Oh, WOW!  It's amazing how one memory triggers another, isn't it?  Thanks again - so much!


  Y'all have a great holiday weekend - and take care of each other!  TYPHOONS FOREVER!

                          Love to all, Carol
