Page Two Support Your Red Cross Swiftly and without warning a severe flash flood swept down upon the little community inflicting heavy damages upon its population and their property. Hundreds were left homeless by the muddy swirling waters which covered the town. Hunger, pain, and sorrow were the aftermath following this flood, but the Red Cross, your Red Cross, arrived on the scene and undertook to return things to a normal condition. Food, medical aid and comfort were supplied to the needy who were victimized by the disaster. Without the speedy aid of the Red Cross, countless other lives would have been lost and needless pain suffered. Earthquakes, Hoods, fires, and other catastrophes have found Red Cross workers on the scene rendering aid and comfort to all those in need of it. The Red Cross has established its enviable record, not only by local or nation-wide work but also by aid in foreign disasters. Food, medical supplies, and other equipment have to be bought and maintained i...

October 20, 1949 Justices, Crabbers To Clash in Tidewater Jeffs Defeat Jayem 27-7 Magicians Pass in Second Half To Overcome First Period Score by Justices Coach Suey Eason's Hampton Crabbers, defending State Group I champions will play host to John Marshall High Friday night at 8 p. m. The Crabbers, led by Co-captain Joe Elliott at center, will be out to notch their fourth triumph at the expense of the Justices. In the Hampton's eleven's four games to date, their opponents combined scoring efforts have produced only 19 points Last season Jim Hickey's club hung a 20 to 13 upset defeat on the Tidewater eleven, and the Crabbers will be out to avenge that setback. In view of Hampton's 25 to 6 conquest of Benedictine, Eason's charges will probably rule a slight favorite. However, the Justices, noted for their upsets, would like nothing better than to put a damper on the Crabbers' championship aspirations. Jefferson Senior High of Roanoke, scoring three touchdowns in the third ? quarter, ...

Page Four Dorothy West, S And Makes Her (This is the first of a series of stories about the hobbies of seniors.) "Isn't it a dream," exclaimed Dorothy West as she showed me a tiny figure with material draped over it. ' This is the way I get my ideas for designing my own clothes. "I've been interested in making clothes since I started playing with dolls," Dorothy replied when asked how long dress making had captivated her free time. "Once," Dorothy said, "when I was a little girl my mother bought me a Snow White doll. The following year when the doll had become soiled and dirty, I made a new dress for my doll and gave it to a little girl who had no doll for Christmas. "Gradually all my dolls and all my friends' dolls had a large wardrobe of clothes. This practice continued for a few years," she explained. When she entered junior high, Dorothy immediately signed up for sewing and learned the basic facts about sewing. Asked how she became interested in designing Dorothy gave this accou...

Page Two Flag Has Significance Our star-spangled banner has long been the symbol of a freedom-loving people to all nations throughout the world. From the earliest American flag made by Betsy Ross until our present day one, the red, white, and blue one has proudly waved all over the world. From the first time our forefathers carried our colors into battle until they were planted atop Iwo Jima by the U. S. Marines, our flag has always been a welcome sight to people throughout the entire world. Not only is our flag symbolic of a democratic people as a whole, but each color has a separate significance. The red represents valor or courage which has been a prominent trait of the American people since the earliest settlers and pioneers until more recent display in World War II by our servicemen and sacrificing civilians. White signifies purity which remains a standard in these modern times. The blue symbolizes loyalty which everyone pledges in the allegiance to the flag. An interesting fac...

November 3, 1949 Justices To Tangle with Prexies at Stadium Devils Defeat Jayem in Mud Blue Devils Roll Over Jayem in Bid for State Laurels by 18 to 0 Margin The John Marshall Justices will be out to snap a three-game losing streak when they entertain George Washington, of Alexandria in a Group I tilt tomorrow night at City Stadium at 8:00 p. m. The Presidents are currently roosting atop the Northern District standings, although they do not own a spotless record. George Washington defeated Thomas Jefferson a month ago in a tightly contested affair. The Alexandrians were one of the two teams to hand the 1948 edition of the Blue-White grid machine a loss, the feat being accomplished on the former's home ground. Coach Jim Hickey is expected to "string along with his regular starting line-up, but it is doubtful if halfback Buddy Simmons will see much action, because of an injured leg.

Page Two John Marshall, The American We, in Virginia and particularly in Richmond, claim John Marshall, the great Chief Justice of the United States, as our own. He is ours, but not ours alone. John Marshall was both a national and international figure, and therefore belongs to the United States and to the world. His great mind and ability to express himself and make decisions for himself and his country brought him much fame and renown the world over. His many cares as a lawyer and as Chief Justice made him known and loved in America. When President Adams sent John Marshall to France in 1797 as an Envoy Extraordinary, his friendliness and brilliance won him many friends abroad and increased his reputation greatly in America. As much as we like to claim John Marshall, we must ac'knowledge the fact that such a great statesman must also be known and admired as an American. Thus he is an even greater Virginian. He made many great decisions for the good of his country and won many debat...

November 17, 1949 Justices Bound Back Against Tech, 30-13 John Marshall Wins, 30-13 Wallops McKinley Tech With Aerial Attack In Surprise Victory By BILL SNEAD John Marshall broke into the victory column last Friday night at the City Stadium with a stunning 30 to 13 triumph over McKinley Tech, of Washington. The Justices combined an effective aerial attack with a devastating ground game to upset the favored visitors before 3,000 enthusiastic fans. Score Early Taking the opening kick-off, Jayera drove 59 yards to pay dirt, as Otis Redford, Allen Barbee, and Mel Roach alternated at the ball-carrying chores, with the latter sneaking over for the score from the one. t It was the Techmen, however, who furnished the crowd with the run of the day. On the ensuing kick-off, Benny Colandreo took a hand-off from Snookie Kernan in the 20, sidestepped a would-be tackier, and went all the way down east sideline behind skilful dawnfield blocking. Humphrey Hudgins put Tech ahead with a conversion th...

Page Four Delegates Hear Plans Governor Tuck of Virginia, Tells V. T. A. Members Of Education Standards The four-day meeting of the sixty-second annual convention of the Virginia Teachers Association brought to teachers many speakers to "put the fodder down." (Apologies to the president of the association.) Governor Speaks The Honorable William M. Tuck, Governor of Virginia, assured the association that every city and county in Virginia would soon have school buildings and a school program they could be proud of. "Education standards and teachers' pay must be attended to, also," the Governor said, "because a fine school building in itself is no good." Mr. H. I.

Page Two We Rededicate John Marshall has contributed forty years of service to the students who have passed through its halls. On this occasion of rededicating this building, a spirit should prevail which enhances the masterful work of this institution of learning. In saluting John Marshall, we should seek to find its successes as a school. Has this structure served as a place where the ideals of boys and girls change into the ideas of men and women? Has John Marshall High been outstanding in the field of extracurricular work? Has the striving for knowledge and for recognition been in the hearts of most true Marshallites? If these questions are answered with yes —and let us hope they are—then we may look back at the school's successes with the joy of knowing that the graduates of the past four decades have entered life as worthy citizens of our country. In glancing back we should not forget to take off our hats to the publications which have served as informative sources concerning ...

Page Four • John Marshall Teachers have A Large Variety of Hobbies Do you ever wonder what teachers do after school? Well, the members of the journalism class did, and they promptly proceeded to find out. They made a survey, and this is the result of their efforts. • Dr. Fred B. Dixon's favorite pastime is gardening. "I just like to get my hands dirty," he said. Mrs. Harley K. Wooster has two hobbies, singing and oil painting. "I engage in these mostly during my vacation," said Mrs. Wooster. Mrs. William E. Henderson is interested in everything. However, traveling, athletics, her family, and school life are the most important. Miss Anne S. Taylor enjoys needlepoint work and sports. In the summer she likes to practice golf, tennis, and swimming. Reading biographies and fiction appeal to Miss Thelma B. Keene.

December 15, 1949 Jayem Upsets Jeffs 15-7 Justice Defense Sparkles In Upset Victory Over Jeffs in Nineteenth Clash John Marshall upset heavily favored Thomas Jefferson, 15 to 7, in their annual November gridiron classic at the City Stadium. With 14,500 enthusiastic fans braving the cold wind, the Justices stopped the Jeffs cold in a hard fought defensive battle.

Three plays later, Quarterback Mel Roach passed 8 yards to Left End John Irwin for the score, with Clyde Biddle converting the seventh point.

Jayem rolled down to the 2-yard line and after one running play was stopped, Roach tried a pitchout to Allen Barbee; but Brown Oliver, Jeff fullback, plucked the ball ...

Page Two New Year Brings Hope What will the New Year bring for you? Will it be better or worse than the past three hundred and sixty-five days? These among other holiday thoughts enter the mind of everyone, as the New Year is now in its infancy. The year 1949 had its happy moments, but with it came, also, many heartaches. Civilization made large strides in many fields which will benefit the world throughout the coming years. Atomic research was carried on at Oakridge, Tennessee to further aid in the advancement of the potent new power. New medicines and drugs discovered and perfected in 1949 will aid to decrease the pain and suffering of the world in the future. Plane crashes took a severe toll of lives in the past year, one of the worst being the mid-air collision of a P-38 fighter plane piloted by a Bolivian and a huge passenger plane. Another was the trans-Atlantic crash which took the life of the noted French boxer Marcel Cerdan. Fires and floods brought their share of suffering...
