SILVER JUBILEE XXV (24th Year) No. 5 Charles Edison at Jay em; V iewed Corps, Gave Talk Advised Students To Use Education Charles Edison, in his speech last Wednesday, November 11, on Youth in Civic Affairs, said that young people should make a start in government as soon as possible. As the youth of today will become the leaders of tomorrow, he emphasized that the building of sound citizenship should start early. "Young people mature earlier these days than they did before," he stated, adding that through anger caused by unsatisfactory conditions young people will start to act. He also said that if youth will keep itself informed, a certain amount of interest will be stimulated. Education Important Mr. Edison in his twenty minute speech advised students to get all they can from their education. "Study controversial issues before making a decision, and remember that any good cause is never too small to fight for," remarked Mr. Edison, in his marked New Jersey accent. The former Secr...

Page Two Thanksgiving: A Remembrance Now that most of the leaves have fallen and we have had our first snowfall, our thoughts naturally turn towards the holiday season. Thanksgiving will be the first big day to come around this fall. Thanksgiving is a day of thanks instituted by the Pilgrims in gratitude for their good fortune in the new world. Normally this was a day of feasting and prayer, a day of rest after harvesting had been completed. Today, this has developed into something rather different. in many cases only the feasting remains now. For many people it is only a day of getting up late, sometimes entirely skipping breakfast so that they will be able to eat that much more at their Thanksgiving Day dinner. There's a quick dash to watch their favorite football team play before tremendous crowds of other people just like them. In the case of the older person, he walks into the living room and slowly, with a bad case of indigestion, sinks down in front of the TV set to watch som...

November 19, 1953 Justices Seek to Save Face In Annual City Football Classic Players Start Early Try outs In Basketball Coach Rechenbach Cuts Team to Fighting Shape Welcoming about 50 boys for the first basketball practice, Coach Rechenbach spent the first few days of practice in scrimmaging as he tried to see just what material he had to choose from. After three days he made his first cut, as the squad was brought down to about 20 boys. The remaining boys continue to work out in the Wythe gymnasium under John Markham, a former John Marshall star. He will work with the boys, who eventually hope to make the B team, until Coach Hollingsworth finishes with football. The early workouts at the armory have consisted of drills on the fundamentals of basketball, handling the ball, footwork, and shooting. Coach Rechenbach says this is the only foundation for a good team. Although the first game is early in December, he does not plan to cut the squad down anymore for several weeks yet. Since ...

silver JUBILEE XXV (24th Year No. 6 Two Groups Hold Year's Initiations Honor Society Welcomes Thirty-Two Marshallites As Quill, Scroll Gets 11 On December 2, the two honor associations of John Marshall initiated new members at a joint assembly in the auditorium. Pat Doggett, the president of the National Honor Society, welcomed the students and opened the program. Four members of this group, Randolph Daniel, Joyce Reams, Jimmy Dodl, and Connie Dean, told the requirements necessary for membership. They are an average of 90 or above for the high school years and the recommendations of the members and faculty for leadership, service, and character. Thirty-two students were tapped by the Honor Society, which is sponsored by Miss Wilhelmina Wright. Joining the group on the stage and receiving their pins, these students took an oath of membership: Barbara Earle Austin, Juanita Bell Austin, Jackie Anne Bittle, Andrew Dewitt Brooks, Shelby Moreland Broughton, Ethan Allen Brown, and Kenneth ...

Page Two Did YOU Pass? The long faces you saw around the halls yesterday weren't due to a shortage of cokes or ice cream, but to the bad grades received on many report cards. When reports came out at the end of the first report period, many promised to try harder for the second six weeks, but somehow there was always something coming up to prevent getting in the extra five minutes needed for French or ten minutes needed for algebra. Then, suddenly it was too late. Reports were out again, and more bad grades. Of course, all bad grades weren't traced to lack of study or lack of interest, but to-unavoidable things such as sickness or really not understanding. When you are sick, you should make a special effort to catch up lost work. After all, catching up involves only a few hours extra work, while failure and having to repeat means another four and a half months spent on the same subject. When you don't understand, your teachers will be more than willing to help you at recess or after...

December 10, 1953 Tee Jay Defeats Justices Before 12,000 Spectators Jayem Plays Year's Best Game; Loses to Jeffs by Score of 6-0 Justice's Defense Proves Outstanding In their annual Turkey Day clash, John Marshall and Thomas Jefferson battled it out on even terms for three and one half quarters at city stadium before the highly favored Jeffs were able to push over their lone tally against a fired up Justice team. Entering the game a two touchdown favorite, the boys from Tee Jay were glad enough to leave the field victors by a score of 6-0 after battling a great Justice defense for four long quarters. T.J. began its scoring drive late in the third quarter when line backer Frank Call intercepted a Jayem pass by Ray Conklin and ran it back to the J.M. 42. Gaining ground in bursts of seven and ten yards a try, the drive was climaxed when Stuart Elliot dived headlong into the end zone from three yards out, for the lone tally and the victory. The try for point after touchdown was low and ...

After graduating from Jayem he worked as a shoe drummer for his father's manufacturing firm by day, and studied law and physics by night. In 1917 he went to Washington where he cornered former President Herbert Hoover and got a job on Hoover's Belgian Relief Commission. When he was 23 he started to ...

Page Two A Toast to Grads Graduation is here again and seniors look with anticipation to that wonderful moment when, diploma in hand, they leave John Marshall to face the problems and joys of a new experience. Four years have passed since these same seniors walked through the halls as freshmen and met the teachers who were to guide and help them through English, math, science, and history. That first year was an exciting one as they became interested in clubs and sports. Corps of cadet recruits went through the rigors of military training and finally, near the end of the semester, upper classmen gave them the handshake which to them meant, "You're one of us, now." • During the sophomore and junior years their activities became more numerous as they became accustomed to high school life. The members of their class were taking the reins of leadership and re- sponsibiliy in many organizaions Then, they became seniors, the leaders in John Marshall. On the football field, the seniors led...

January 21, 1954 John Marshall Seeks Another Win at Jeffs' Expense Justices Face Tee Jay With Winning Streak Tomorrow night's contest with the cagers from Tee Jay will be the real test for the hottest J.M. basketball team in years. Although the Jeffs have not been living up to pre-season expectations, they are always at their best when playing against John Marshall. Both teams will be in top form for tomorrow night's tilt in the West End gymnasium. Game time is 8 P.M., and officials of both schools expect an overflow crowd. J.M. enters the game with one of its best teams in top form. Opening their 1953-54 basketball season against the Cadets of Benedictine, John Marshall proceeded to take a 62-54 victory, on the losers' home floor at the Benedictine Gym. The game being the first of the season for both teams, many mistakes and flaws were found in the offense and defense. Buck Jones, Donald Goode, Larry Rauppius, and Harry Goode were the big guns in the J.M. attack, each one hitting i...

Page Four City Joins AAA League; Garnett to Captain '54 Team Mr. Welch Discusses Triple A IL Booster Reveals Stories Behind Scene In Key Club Speech Mr. D. Andrew Welch, a prominent figure in the struggle for triple A baseball in Richmond, led a discussion on this topic in the Key Club January 5. Mr. Welch was Mayor Haddock's official representative to a meeting in Washington last December between Eddie Mooers, Harry Seibold, and Piedmont and International League officials. It was at this meeting that Mr. Mooers agreed to sell his franchise for $25,000, and Richmond was awarded a tentative franchise by the International League subject to finding a suitable ball park. Mr. Welch gave a brief sketch of what went on in this Washington meeting. He told the club a remark he made to Mr. Mooers: "If Richmond doesn't get triple A ball, we will have triple B ball (Boycott B Baseball)." During the Key Club meeting, Mr. Welch warned that although City Council had approved the use of Parker fiel...

January 21, 1954 Executive Committee Names Its Recently Elected Members The Student Association of John Marshall recently announced four newly elected members to the Executive Committee, two from the 9L class and two from the 10L class. The four new members of the Executive Committee are 9L, Ann Sutton and Sylvia Mcjilton, from Bainbridge; and 10L, Billie Daniels, from Bin- ford; and Phyllis Bishop, from Chandler. This is the first time at J. M. that there has been an election for the 10L class after school has started in September. The reason for this was that Bainbridge seemed to have a monopoly on the Executive Committee as it was the only school which sent students to John Marshall in the 9th grade. However, there was also, as in the past, an election in April and three lOL's were elected to the Executive Committee. So that Chandler, East End, and Binford would have a chance for representation on the committee, the two recently elected were from candidates from these three junio...

Page Six Thermometer is Under the Weather Yearbook Ad Go Mr. Arnold Turns to Seniors Hand down the aspirin bottle; here comes Mr. Arnold with those blank Marshallite advertising contracts and $ $ in his eyes. This might well be the thought of all who have contacted with Mr. John Arnold, business adviser for the annual, The Marshallite. Bending over backwards is not absent from Mr. Arnold's list entitled, "Methods of Making Seniors Realize the Importance of Getting Ads and Getting Them Early." The thermometer in Room 109 that records the amount of money available for use by the yearbook staff seems to absorb all the ads with no visible effect on the seemingly sta- tionary thermometer. The goal of $2,000 is far away, as only about SI,OOO has been turned in to date. It has been said that "time is money." This adage could be no more true than it is in this case. Every day that this ad-hunting is put ad right from under our noses. Leaving the Tuesday afternoon meetings, the members of th...

Page Two Here's to Your Success Making his four years at high school successful and happy is the desire of every Marshallite. But this, says the student, is a big order, with studying, getting along with teachers and fellow students, making good grades and what not. But before jumping to any hasty conclusions, try to look at it from this standpoint. Every substantial building has a very sturdy foundation that took a long time to build. Without that foundation there would be no beautiful building. The same theory applies to a student aiming for the top at school. One cannot come to high school and end up number one after one or two years attendance. If one's record has been good during that time, the desired end will be reached ultimately. Often times people have to see you in action for a pretty good while before they are willing to drop responsible work in your lap. If a student maintains average or better marks, and endeavors to get along with the faculty and student body, he will...

February 18, 1954 Justice To Entertain Tee Jay At Home Tomorrow Night Winner To Take First In District In their belated contest, the highly tutored Tee Jay Presidents will at last clash with John Marshall's high-flying Justices. A heavy snowstorm caused postponement of their first contest. These two central district powerhouses will go at each other tomorrow night (weather permitting) in what should be the top game in the central district thus far in the season. Game time is 8 o'clock at Gray's Armory, and the coaches say the gym will undoubtedly be filled to capacity before 7:30. Students and rooters of both schools have looked forward to this traditional game for a long time. Led by their heretofore unstoppable Edgar Baird, the Jeffs should be the favorite, but playing on their home floor and with a strong bench to back up a hot first five, Coach Rechenbach's boys could turn the tables on the Belt Liners. In the past season, records haven't meant much in this cross-town rivalry; t...

"I was brushing my teeth when the phone rang," he said laugh- ingly. "My father called me to the Carver, who then told me that I had been chosen." Kenneth plans to he a minister like his father. "I cannot condense my reasons for wanting to be a minister into a few words, but ever since I was a little boy I've always felt that I would be one." He will compete on the air in the quarter finals quiz with a student from another school for the $350 award. He will receive a $l5O scholarship for taking part in the broadcast. If he wins, he will be able to compete for the S6OO scholarship and if successful in that, he can then try for the SI,OOO award. He is president of the Key Club, a member of the National Honor So...

Page Two Be A Careful Driver Hyram Smith of the Governor's Highway Safety Commission, in a recent Meet the Press committee meeting, said that there are approximately 55,000,000 autos in the United States today in comparison with 8,000 in 1900. This overwhelming increase in the number of automobiles is one of the foremost reasons for the interest of high school students in safety activities Even though 75 per cent of our teen-age drivers practice care and precaution when behind the wheel, the other 25 per cent are habitually careless. The attitude of the teen-ager toward driving is the most important factor. Driver education classes in the tenth grade will soon be one of the compulsory subjects at John Marshall as well as at other schools in the city. In this class, everything about the automobile will be taught except the actual driving. In this way the pedestrian will be alerted along with the operator of the car. Safety Week, a week that students devote to preventing accidents, ha...
