Page Four Clubs Suit Girls, Boys J. M. Activities Grow From Student Interests, Needs; Offer Students Outlets Student activities at John Marshall are based on student needs and interests, and they originate when a demand for them arises, according to the senior counselor, Miss Thelma Keene. There are many extra-curricular activities for Marshallites. There are music, publications, service groups, literary clubs, honor societies, hobby clubs, class organizations, religious activities, drama, and student politics. Groups Have High Standards The oldest of these groups is international Quill and Scroll, which came to John Marshall in 1930. It honors students who have done outstanding work on school publications, but these students must be in the upper third in class standing and live up to the highest standards of citizenship. National Honor Society members must have an average of 90, or more than that, and must be judged favorably by the Honor Society members and the faculty on leadersh...

Page Two UN, Seniors Uphold Freedom Two seemingly unrelated events occured within a few days of each other recently. The Class of 1951 of John Marshall High School held its election of officers, and a week ago Tuesday the United Nations celebrated its fifth anniversary as a world governing agency. Unrelated events? At first glance, this may seem to be so, but let us look more closely and see if they are not in reality closely linked together.. The United Nations is holding the torch of liberty high against the spreading peril of communism. It has demonstrated that, to a certain degree, at least, world government is possible and that nations can function in a governing capacity. Of course it has not had 100% success. There are some world leaders today eager and ready to say the United Nations has failed—miserably. They point to the Korean war as proof of their statements. However feeble its efforts may have been in the past, faltering as its present steps toward world peace are, shad...

November 2, 1950 Justices Lose First; Will Meet Blue Devils Tomorrow Hampton Be With Score of 14 to 7 Hampton High's smooth doublewnig formation proved too much for T-minded John Marshall, who tumbled, 14 to 7, last Friday night at the City Stadium. The win gave the Crabbers a 6 to 0 record and put them in the undefeated ranks of Hopewell, E. C. Glass, and Woodrow Wilson in Group I standing. With 10,000 patrons cheering, the Justices tallied early in the second period on a 56-yard gallop by Mel Roach, Jayem offensive star, who placed the ball on the Hampton 16 where Allen Barbee scampered the distance on an end run. Roach booted the extra point. The Blue and White bounced to the Hampton back a few minutes later where their attack sputtered and the Crabbers took over. With several minutes left, a John Marshall fumble by Barbee was recovered by Hampton and turned into 7 points, as Frank Boswell skirted end for a score. The Crabbers took control in the Fateful Night Has Awful Sights An...

Page Two We Still Give Thanks "What a break!" whined Bill. "Dad got his check back this morning from the ticket office saying they had sold all stadium seats for the game Thanksgiving Day, and this afternoon we had a wire from my sister in college asking mother to come to visit her during the holidays. So that really fixes my holiday. No game, no turkey dinner. If anybody asks that stupid old question, 'What are you thankful for?' I've got my answer in one word —NOTHING!" "That is tough luck, Bill, and I'm sorry," replied Jim. "But I don't think your one word answer about thankfulness would be right —nor really honest. Do you?" asked his companion. "Why not?" asked Bill. Well, you live in a country with free public education. Else we probably would not have the football teams and big games you are so sorry to miss. However, that isn t the important thing about our schools and colleges. You live in a country where individual effort still counts, where a man can rise above the conditi...

November 16, 1950 John Marshall Loses Third; Faces Typhoons Tomorrow Devils Top Justices Dean Leads Hopewell; Barbee, Jones Tally For Jayem Markers Led by their brilliant quarterback, Johnny Dean, the Hopewell Blue Devils thrashed the Justices of John Marshall, 41 to 13, before 11,000 fans last Friday, a week ago, in the Wonder City. The Blue Devils, favored by 13 points, struck for two scores in the first period, as Dean threw to Walt Brodie and Mike Foley on tosses of 37 and 12 yards, respectively. Hubert Auckerman made good both placements. Brodie Scores In the first few minutes of the second quarter, a Dean pass to Brodie set up another marker as Lewis Dean, younger brother of Johnny, tallied on a jaunt from the Jayem 17. The Justices' offense came to life as Allen Barbae took the kick-off on his own 15 and raced to score behind perfect blocking. Quarterback Mel Roach's kick was low and to the left. John Marshall came in the second half, trailing 21 to 6 and took charge for half...

Page Four Journalism Students Visit W Thirty-one students from the journalism class found last week that they could learn a great deal by sitting for ten minutes in a Wythe classroom. They Go to Moon High in the sky? That's right for the fifth period science class of Miss Elizabeth Webb in 209W took a trip to the moon Tuesday, of last week. While Miss Webb read, the boys and girls listened, wide-eyed and attentive. They discovered that being a weatherman on the moon would be an easy job, for the same forecast would hold true for every day: "Fair and hot today; Fair and cold tonight." There is no water on the moon; therefore, there are never any clouds or rain and snow. Jumping over a one-story building would be easy to do on the moon. If a person could ordinarily jump five feet on the earth, he would think nothing of leaping 30 feet there. In other words, he could jump six times as far, and he would weigh one-sixth as much on the moon as on the earth. It wouldn't be a good idea to p...

Page Two The Life You Save May Be Your Own A squeal of screeching tires, the sickening rip of metal on metal, and once again blaring over the radio the dismal tolling of a bell, and the voice of the announcer saying, "Two more deaths have been added to the mounting toll of fatalities on Virginia's highways in 1950." Thousands of Americans are killed each year in automobile accidents, and untold thousands more are injured. All Marshallites should be appalled by the terrific death rate caused by auto accidents in Virginia. Already this year there are more than 700, and the number keeps steadily mounting, day in, day out. All too often, when reading the account of such a traffic death in the papers, people are likely to shake their heads gravely, and say, "Too bad, but what can you expect of these youngsters today; it must just be another case of teenicide." But is this true? Much publicity is given to the activities of teen-age drivers in current periodicals, such as a recent writeup ...

Roach made gocd the extra point as he did on all attempts.

Page Two Why It Is Possible Yes, all the stores are brightly decorated and lighted and everyone is rushing in all directions. Surely looks as if Christmas is about to get in full swing. Have you ever stopped and thought why you are rushing, about to break your neck, just to buy that darling necklace for your girl friend or that perfectly magnificent erecter set for baby brother? Could it be that you enjoy being pushed around, having your toes stepped on, or is the real meaning of Christmas in your heart? The Christmas that was celebrated many centuries ago in the little town of Bethlehem when the Wise Men came forth bringing gifts humbly with only the thought of receiving a Savior. The same stars that were shining that night so long ago will still be shining over the cold, frozen lands of Korea on December 25. As you go about your busy day, filled with holiday spirit, think of the boys over there who are making this Christmas possible for you. They have no way of purchasing lovely a...

From the Tee jay 2, Roach carried over in two plays and added the extra point. After receiving the kick-off, the Jeffs tried two trick plays, both of which failed to net much , yardage. On the third down, Oliver tried a desperation pass. The result was Barbee's fine interception, a 60-yard gallop, and a 14 to Q victory for the Blue and White. Mel Roach, performing for the last time in a Justice football uniform, played a magnificent game at quarterback.
