Page Two The True Easter is the one Sunday in ths year that brings more people to church than any other time of the year. There are those who go to church to show of their beautiful Easter frocks and the lovely flowers that everyone seems to have at this time of the year. Many parents bring their children up with the idea that Easter is just a time for Easter baskets, large and small, and pretty clothes. For the mother of the family it is the time for a new hat, because it does not seem like Easter without it. Then there are those who take Easter as a spring vacation. They don't buy clothes or go to church for fear of not having enough money or time for their holiday. Others who go to church throughout the year don't have to go on Easter Sunday to show off their new clothes, because they go not for the sake of showing their clothes, but to find an answer to their problems. Easter Sunday has a true meaning for these people. When God looks down upon the world, He looks not at the love...

March 15, 1956 Jayem Experiences First Losing Season in Five Years Reedy Named To All-Central District Team Larry Hicks Only One Of 12 Not to Return By James Fisher A few seconds and a few points were the difference between John Marshall having a winning season instead of a losing season. This is the first time since the 'SO- - season that John Marshall has suffered a losing season. It is the first time also that Jayem has had a losing season since the job of head basketball coach was taken over by Coach Clayton Rechenbach. In the season before "Rick" relieved Coach Hickey, who went to Hamp-den-Sydney, Jayem had a record of seven wins and 12 losses. Since Coach Rechenbach has been directing the quintets, they have won 69 games and lost only 34, 13 of which were lost this year. In Rick's first year the final record was 15-4; his second year Jayem won 11 and lost eight. (With only three games remaining, Jayem was looking forward to another very successful season. But they dropped all ...

Page Two Love and Marriage That young boy and girl holding hands are so cute. They are the typical high school couple. At the present time they are very fond of one another. 1 j This is one of the many signs of youth approaching maturity This is one of the sweet treasures of old age. This period of growing up might even be called a "trial and error" period. Each young person is seeking in another the perfect companion. The friendship lasts until either there is a personality clash or someone more ideal appears. Since this is just an understanding between the pair, it is easily broken. The cast-off partner feels rebuffed at first, but soon forgives and forgets. Then there is an attraction between some couples. This is all right unless it is taken seriously without weighing the factors involving this person. If given the chance, this attraction usually disappears. If this attraction continues and the involved factors do not outweigh it, it is a form of love. It takes time to discover ...

April 19, 1956 Jayem Defeats Manchester, 5-1; Downed by Teejay, 8-5 Rideout Hurls Jayem to Win Over Lancers Langhorne Hurls, Hits Presidents to Win By David Jennings The John Marshall baseball team snapped out of a three-game losing streak over the Easter holidays and bounced back with a rousing 5-1 victory over Manchester. The game was tied in the first inning as the Justices brought across three runs on three errors, two singles, a walk, and a ground out. Shortstop Joe McNamee led off the inning with a scratch single to the left side of the field. Pitcher Lefty Lines threw wild in an attempted- pick-off play and McNamee went to second. Doug Martin came up with a single and McNamee went to third. Dan Burroughs' groundout brought in McNamee, moving Martin to second. Thus the play was set up with two outs. Raymond Sykes, Lancer catcher, threw a wild pitch back to Lines, after walking Traylor. Martin dug for home and Traylor went down to second. Royer's peg to the keystone sack was wi...

Page Two A Helping Hand "Mom, wake me up early in the morning," says the dependent schoolboy or girl. So early the next morning she is shaking you or pouring water over your face to awaken you. After dressing so hurriedly you rush into the kitchen only to smell the luring aroma of bacon and eggs that she is preparing for breakfast. While you are gulping down that last swallow of milk, she is helping you put on your coat. You grab your books and rush out of the door toward the bus stop. When you are about one-half the way from your house you hear her shouting from the doorway, "Oh Jim, you forgot your lunch." When the schoolday is over you return home again greeted with a cheerful smile and "How'd things go today?" You tell her that you just can't understand that history teacher and that Latin is just too dead. Why couldn't that cute girl have spoken today or at least looked my way anyhow? While you are talking she listens patiently and attentively, trying to understand how you feel....

May 3, 1956 Justices Defeat Springers and Devils; Jefferson Next Smith Shines As Jayem Nine Avenge Defeat John Marshall knocked Hopewell ace, Reb Cole, out of the box on Friday, April 20, and went on to crush the Blue Devils by the score of 12-1. "Coot" Smith went the distance for Jayem, pitching a beautiful game and only allowing three hits. He mixed his fast ball and curve well while stricking out many of the opposing batters. The Justices scored enough runs in the first inning to win the game. On freshman catcher Billy Shwartz's tworun double Jayem didn't stop here, however. They went on to bombard three Hopewell pitchers for ten mere runs. Shwartz and Dan Burroughs each banged out two hits, while Joe McNamee contributed a rare grandslam homerun. On the preceding Tuesday, the Justices journeyed to Hermitage only to absorb a 9-6 defeat at the hands of the Panthers. The game was sloppily played due to the cold weather, both sides making numerous errors. Doug Martin proved to be the...

Page Four Ready, Aim, Fire Jayem Cadets Dominate NRA Jr. Rifle Tournament at Dare Justice riflemen, sparked by the sterling performances of Conway Spiers and Paul Gandy, dominated in the 12th Annual NRA Junior Rifle Tournament at Dare, Virginia, April 21. Sponsored by the Lafayette Gun Club of Virginia, this was one of more than 50 such sectional tournaments being held throughout the nation. They are the most important indoor shoulder-to-shoulder matches of the year in which scores are compiled by national rankings and awards. Spiers, a cadet sergeant in Company B, proceeded with ice-cold calmness to pluck out a perfect prone score of 100-8 X and then a phenominal 94 standing for a winning 194/200 in the individual match. In so doing he unofficially broke the existing state record, fired three points under the national record, and one point under the 1956 winning score, and thus ranks as a contender for the national title. Other places taken by John Marshall were sixth place by Rich...

Page Two Of Manners and Crashes A popular novelty among teen-agers these days seems to be crashing parties. This practice is not only unfair and unjust, but it is also rude, impolite, and unthoughtful. The person involved in such an action may become an undesirable personality. Instead of obtaining the recognition he is seeking he usually loses the respect of his friends. In recent incidents at parties many dangerous and unnecessary happenings have been caused by uninvited guests. Throwing a soft drink bottle through the window of someone's home might not be considered true, but it did happen as a result of one showing-ofF. Just by a lucky chance it barely missed the head of a party guest. This has also caused such disturbances as fighting one another and terrible disorder in the home of a nice family. " It seems as if one who has not been invited is going to enjoy the furnishings of a party, he could at least have the manners to improve himself. Leaving cigarette butts on the floor...

May 17, 1956 Smith Pitches No-Hitter; Mel Rideout Has Near Miss Flawless Play By Boys Backs Both Chunkers Well*pitched games seemed to be in order last week as Mel Rideout pitched a one-hit ball game against Petersburg Tuesday and "Coot" Smith hurled a no-hitter against Hermitage Friday. Rideout struck out fifteen while walking five and had a one-run lead, thanks to his fellow players, through- out the game. The only run came in the first inning when Shortstop Joe McNamee drew a lease on balls and took second on Doug Martin's sacrifice. Billy Graham's single through the right side of the infield scored McNamee for the lone marker in the game. The Crimson Wave took five innings before they could get a runner as far as second. With two out in the seventh inning, Duke Poe, batting eighth, singled to spoil the day for Rideout. SMITH, 1-3 Friday, Coot Smith, who went into the game with an 0-3 record, made up for it as he pitched seven innings of superb ball which resulted in blanks in th...

Page Two New Worlds to Conquer Jane was ready to graduate. Her father stopped and muttered to himself, "My Jane, ready to graduate already." As he sat in thought, he took his high school annual from the bookshelf and thumbed through its pages. The words written there came alive to him Good luck, Lots of luck to a swell guy, Good luck always. They glared at him as he pondered over his book. All of them contained that same word, luck. Luck? Yes, every graduate needs luck, because one day he is at the top of the ladder and the next day he's at the bottom again ready to climb a more challenging ladder. More than luck, however, every graduate needs to be willing to work for what he wants and expects to attain. Anything worth getting is worth working for. Work means time to get the whole job done, and work means effort to get the job done to the best of your ability. No loafing, please. Work, time, effort! It sounds like a big ladder we'll soon be climbing, and it'll pay off in big divide...

May 31, 1956 Justices Have 8-6 Record; Burroughs Is Batting Champ Smith Chunks Blanks, Gains Third Victory Burroughs' .410 Mark Good for Metro Title "Coot" Smith kept up his shutout pace as he tamed St. Christopher with a blazing three-hitter to get his second victory in two straight games. Shortstop Joe McNamee scored via Doug Martin's sacrifice and Dan Burrough's single in the first inning to get the only run needed to insure a victory. But, Jayem sewed up the game in the third frame when three hits, two Saint errors, and a walk pushed acrossed four runs to give the Big Blues a 5-0 win. RELIEVES RIDEOUT Smith kept up his winning ways as he relieved Mel Rideout in the fifth inning of a makeup gaxrfe with Highland Springs for his third win in three games. The Justices went into the last of the seventh inning on the bottom of a 5-3 score but Springer pitcher Carlton Rowe had a spell of wildness which enabled the Big Blue to put together 3 more runs and come away on the big end of a 6...
