laughing helps you forget it for a few seconds.”

- Red Skelton
(18 July 1913 - 17 Sep 1997)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Just after I released Sunday's Newsletter, I was getting ready for church, and my Magic Shower started singing me this song.  I was somewhat less than amused, so I thought I'd use it now so that my Magic Shower would move on and switch to something happier.

   Also, due to the delays involved, today's Newsletter had grown soooo long, I plucked several notes to use for tomorrow's edition.  Never fear, I'm not ignoring you.

 


NEWBIES:

1.    Wade Scott ('66) of MO - 06/19/06:

Carol,

I would like to have my name added to the Class of 1966. I hope this is the correct address to send the request. What information is required to be added to my class’s alumni list? My personal e-mail address is weanie@hotmail.com but feel free to respond to my work address. I sent this request last week to 'NNHS65@nc.rr.com' but have not received a response and have to assume the note went to “e-mail heaven/hell”. If I haven’t heard from you in the next few days I’ll send the request with a check (I know this can’t be completely free!) via U.S. mail to your home address listed on the web home page

I also want to thank you for all your hard work in maintaining this site! When I need a break from work, and be reminded of all the good memories of Newport News I pull this site up from my list of “Favorites“ and just let myself become nostalgic for a few minutes.

Again, thanks and let me know what other information you need.  

Wade Scott of Missouri….pronounced Misery after having lived here 22 years and very much wanting to return HOME!

   Well, Wade Scott, as I live and breathe! It's so good to hear from you after forty-eleven years! And no, I never saw your other note, which is no doubt hovering in that cyber-purgatory.

   I've added your name to the (usually) hidden mailing lists, to the Alumni Page, and to the Contact Page for the Class of '66. If you send me your birthday, I'll add it there as well.

    From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 06/18/06 - "Irving Berlin Songstress":

How do you know that it was not Julie London? The time frame is right. (attached)

Was it
Rosemary Clooney? (attached)

How about Sophie Tucker?

*LDC 22643
Sophie Tucker performances, 1925.

Maybe even Keely Smith.

D

    OOOOOHHH!!!  (David attached mp3's of both Julie and Rosemary singing "What'll I do?")

   Thanks so much!    But it was neither of those.....

   Strangely, Rosie actually sounded closer to this woman than Julie did.

   I was loathe to use the word "obscure" to describe my mystery singer, lest someone say, "But she was quite famous!"

   And perhaps she was, but not as recognizable to me, and I don't think I would have forgotten her, had she been a major star.  And maybe it was Keely Smith, but she was on the telly so much back then, surely I would have remembered had it been her. I think she's too young, anyway.  And I don't think this gal had the power of Sophie Tucker, either, though I wouldn't swear to it.

   I could recognize the accompanying music as easily as her voice; there was no guitar as Julie's arrangement used, but a full-stringed orchestra.

   Thanks for trying, Brown Eyes!    It's been bugging me for a mighty long time now.
 

 

  From Stacy Dorn ('64) of VA - 06/18/06:

Hi Carol,
 
Of course you know now that these songs you mentioned ("Remember", "All Alone", "Always", and "What'll I Do") will be in my head all day!!  I do know Rosemary Clooney did all of them -- but I can't see her voice as deep and sultry as Julie London's.  Eydie GormeDoris DayJoni James Lena HorneElla FitzgeraldPatti PageKate Smith?? 
 
arghhhh!  Lemme know when you find out :))
 
hugs!
 
Stacy

   I know, Stacy!  These songs have been in my head all these years, and for the last 30 or 35 of them, I've wondered who she was.

   Eydie and Joni, much as I love them, are way too young, and it just wasn't any of the others.  Thanks for trying!    And don't worry - I'll let the world know if and when I find her!

 
 

  From Ron Miller ('59) of NC - 06/18/06:

Carol: re:

They were of some woman whose name I cannot recall singing Irving Berlin songs - "Remember", "All Alone", "Always", and "What'll I Do?".

 
Could the singer(s) have been Doris Day and/or Rosemary Clooney? They both did a lot of Berlin songs, and both had deeper voices -- especially Doris Day.

-- Ron

   But 'twas neither of those lovely ladies, Ronnie.  She was a lesser-known singer (at least to me), or I'd not be having this problem.

   Lizabeth Scott sang (or lip-synced) this song in the 1948 film noir movie, I Walk Alone:

 
 
I Wish I Didn't Love You So

Originally made famous by:  Dinah Shore

   You can hear a 30-second sample of Dinah singing it here:
http://music.yahoo.com/track/1032614

Written by:  Frank Loesser
From the Album:  Suddenly It's Spring
From the Film:  The Perils Of Pauline  (1947)

I wish I didn't love you so,
My love for you should have faded (or "ended") long ago.
I wish I didn't need your kiss,
Why must your kiss torture me as long as this.
I might be smiling by now with some new tender friend,
Smiling by now with my heart on the mend,
But when I try, something in my heart says no.
You're still there, I wish I didn't love you so.
 

 
   This song was originally recorded by Betty Hutton.  I've never been able to find a MIDI file of it, or I would have used it as a Newsletter theme "long ago".  Nonetheless, that voice in the movie - whosever it was - might have been my mysterious songstress.

   Unless....Maybe.....

   Irving Berlin wrote all four of these songs in the early to mid-20's.  The records were 78's, but we could all be thinking of the 40's when we should be thinking of the 30's.  Just a thought.

   Thanks so much for trying, Sweetie!

   So the mystery remains.......

 



  Bill Campbell ('54) of VA - 06/18/06 - "Father's Day, Military, Etc.":

Hi Carol.
 
I read your newsletter every day. Don't even THINK about limiting it to something less, like only once a week.

   Actually, Bill, I can't even consider that as one of my options.  It just becomes too mind-boggling, and I need to conserve all the brain power I have remaining, such as it is.  But thanks, Sweetie - I appreciate your endorsement and encouragement!

Well, today I am responding to your Father's Day/Military appeal in the 6/18/06 newsletter.

 
I was in the U.S. Army for two years after I graduated from NNHS in 1954. My classmates Mac Langston, Mickey Marcella, Granville Hall, and Joe Lanier were also in the Army during that time. So, we had 5 Typhoons 'guarding the perimeter' just after the Korean War. After basic training at Ft. Jackson, S.C. and Signal Corps School at Camp Gordon (now upgraded to FORT Gordon), Ga., I spent the remainder of my two years as a saxophonist in the Southeastern Signal School Band. I was able to get into the band because I had obtained good musical training at NNHS. (An aside - I was in the Jr. Band in 8th grade under Miss Sherman, promoted to Sr. Band in 9th grade under Miss Sherman, and then she quit. For the next three years we had 3 different band directors. First, Elmer Cogan, then Mr. Warner, who didn't stay long enough to even have his picture in the Anchor, and finally, Mr. Leonard Zimet. Four band directors in four years. Was Miss Sherman a tough act to follow or what?)
 
Anyway, the time that I spent in the U.S. Army was the best investment I ever made, because it allowed me to go to the University of Virginia on the G.I. Bill (couldn't have afforded it otherwise), which allowed me to graduate with an engineering degree, which allowed me to get a job as an engineer with N.A.S.A. at Langley, which allowed me to get jobs with N.A.S.A contractors, which allowed me to make a lot of money, retire, and live happily ever after. 

   Well, I'm glad somebody made a lot of money!  GIGGLES!!!  Money always seems to flee from me.  Anytime it looked as though we might actually - just this once - rise above the poverty level, my husband's job would lose its funding, and we would find ourselves once again unemployed - just like now!  ARGHHHH!!!

 
I also have a son, William Austin Campbell, Jr., so you may add me to your list of fathers, if you have one, and also to your list of military veterans. Keep up the good work, you little Energizer Bunny.
 
Bill C.

   Wellll, actually we don't have a list of fathers, per se.  But I'm honored to add you to our Famous Soldiers page!  And there you are now, right between my daddy and Art Carney - who used to live next door to my daddy's brother, Graham Buckley:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/famous-soldiers.html

   Now I just need your place of birth.  Any images you have of yourself in uniform will give you extra bonus points - which are, of course, absolutely useless!!!  WILD GIGGLES!!!

   Thanks again, Bill!

 


    From Eric Huffstutler (Bethel HS - '75) of VA - 06/18/06 - "More on 1965 TV":

Hey sweetie... 

I will try to find a station logo for WVEC-TV from the 1965 era.  I am sure we can come up with one if nothing else, from the newspaper microfilms at the library.  Will this do for now from '68 time frame?
 

     
       
       
   OOOOOH - that will be absolutely lovely, Eric!  Thanks!

   And I've saved the rest of this letter for tomorrow - don't panic!  Thanks again, Honey!

    From Gail Kiger Bonsey (Ferguson HS - '73) of OR - 06/20/06 - "Fathers article by
  Tim Rogers (Hampton HS - '66)":

Enjoyed your story about your father, Tim, in the 6/18/06 newsletter.  So you were the Rogers family on Greenbriar.  I spent many a day on Greenbriar,  from where we lived in Stuart Gardens...as our cousins, Ronald, Tommy, and Brenda Staples, lived on Greenbriar.  (All graduates of HHS). Ronald would have been about 2 yrs younger than you.  I recall walking to the corner market behind Ronald's backyard with my grandmother, who we called 'Nanny Pete'.  They had a little dog named Robbie.  There was a cement basketball court on their property.  Wythe was a pretty area. 
 
Gail (Kiger) Bonsey  FHS '73

   Thanks, Gail!  I love hearing about how our lives were so entwined!

 


  From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 06/20/06:

Carol: 

Thank you for posting    Tim Rogers' (Hampton HS - '66) interesting story about his father and his mother (in the 6/18/06 newsletter).  I knew this family quite well.  Ronnie was the oldest and he graduated from Hampton High in 1960, the same year I graduated from Newport News.  He was always in my Sunday School class at Orcutt Avenue Baptist Church.  Of course, I knew Jerry and Tim also.  What a wonderful family!  When Mr. and Mrs. Rogers left the Wythe section of Hampton, they moved to Lansdowne in the Denbigh area of Newport News.  I have lived in this neighborhood for 28 years and would often talk to Mr. Rogers as I passed by his house down the street from where I first lived in the neighborhood.  Mr. Rogers was known as "Buckshot Rogers"....everyone really liked him as he was so interesting and kind.  We all knew how devoted Mr. and Mrs. Rogers were to each other.  The Rogers' were very active in the church. I recall Mrs. Rogers was Church Librarian and Mr. Rogers assisted Sheriff W. B. Weaver in preparing the meal for the Brotherhood, the mens' organization in the church.  This was for our monthly meeting.  Young people today would not believe that often times civic organizations and churches would, at times, have a Womanless Wedding.  It was ALL MEN - it was a hoot!
 

Mr. Buckshot Rogers was dressed as the Groom and Sheriff W.B. Weaver was the Bride. He actually wore a bride's gown.  Mr. Rogers was short and Weaver was real tall.  The father of the bride carried a shot gun.  I even have some pictures of this wedding.  It was so humorous.  Dr. Bruce Price was a bridesmaid; there was a flower girl and ring bearer.  All men!  I think that people today would think this was sort of kinky; however, people at that time did not think as so many do today.  I remember one man (I mean bridesmaid) wore a gown, wig, and had a plunger tied around his neck.  The plunger represented a "plunging neckline", I think!  When anything needed to be done at the church, you could always count on Mr. Rogers. He was a friend of my father and all who knew him.
 
Precious memories......
Take care, Fred Mays, '60

   Indeed they are!  Thanks, Fred!    I posted them for you:

   By the way, many of these pages are still missing music.  The honor of choosing such music belongs to members (or former members) of the individual congregations.  You need not find the MIDI files yourselves unless that would just give you a thrill.  Just pick the hymn, and either    David (Spriggs - 64 - of VA) or    I ('65 - of NC) will locate it for you.  This is done on a "first come, first serve" basis, so "GO GIT 'EM"!!!

   From Wade Scott ('66) of MO - 06/20/06:

Good Morning!

I have a few minutes after a meeting being cancelled!

Thanks for adding my name to the Alumni list. I’ll send a check to your home address this weekend when I pay bills for the week. I have used Pay Pal but am not totally comfortable with it.

   “What on earth took you to the Midwest?”

 The answer to that question is long and complex! The short version is my wife of nearly 35 years is from Iowa. We met while both of us were in the Navy. After two years at C&P Telephone, I was offered a job in Iowa by what was Continental Telephone Company. In 1981, we packed bag and baggage, sold our home, put our twins (3 ½ years old at the time) in the car and moved to Knoxville, Iowa. In 1984, I was promoted and transferred to Wentzville, MO and have been here ever since. I continue to work in telecommunications in Maryland Heights close to Chesterfield but have our home in Wentzville, if you remember where that is. Our son lives in St. Charles working for Penske and considers this to be home. He and his twin sister were born in Newport News but don’t remember anything about it other than annual visits to see their grandmother. Our daughter is in the Navy stationed in Hawaii and just delivered our first grandchild, Olivia Leeann, in February. Heather joined the Navy after graduating from Truman State University in Kirksville, MO. While both children consider Missouri to be home I am past ready to return to the southern states preferably North Carolina or Virginia. My wife, Joanne, is also ready to return to the East Coast. I think she misses the water/beach as much as I do! This was supposed to be short, so I’ll stop for now.

Again, thanks for all your work on the web site it is greatly appreciated!  I’ll send a check this weekend.

Wade

   That would be lovely, Wade!    Thanks!

Hi, Carol:

How about a white rose to brighten your day?

Always,

Adonis
 

   OH!!!  How beautiful it looks nestled among those periwinkles - or are those vincas?  Or are periwinkles and vincas the same?? Well, anyway, it's quite lovely!  Thanks, Adonis!

Send in the Clowns

- Words and Music by Stephen Sondheim, A Little Night Music

(Judy Collins)


Isn't it rich, are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground,
You in mid-air.
Send in the clowns.

Isn't it bliss, don't you approve?
One who keeps tearing around
One who can't move
Where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns.

Just when I'd stopped opening doors,
Finally knowing the one that I wanted was yours.
Making my entrance again with my usual flair,
Sure of my lines;
No one is there.

Don't you love farce?
My fault I fear,
I thought that you'd want what I want,
Sorry my dear
But where are the clowns
Send in the clowns
Don't bother, they're here.

Isn't it rich, isn't it queer
Losing my timing this late in my career
But where are the clowns
there ought to be clowns
Well, maybe next year.

Of course we all remember Judy Collins' rendition of "Send In The Clowns."
It is her voice that you hear in your head when the song title is mentioned.

However, the song was part of "A Little Night Music", music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.
