John Marshall won the annual Tidewater meet held for high schools at the William and Mary College Friday April 25 by nosing out Maury by a narrow margin of 55 to 54. Maury was holding the lead at the beginning of the mile relay, which was the final event. The excellent running in the mile relay with time of 3 min. 38 seconds of Bullard, Overton, Libby, and Taylor was responsible for winning the meet. Little, Maury was high point man for the day with a total of 13 1-2 points. West and C. Haase of Newport News and John Marshall respectively were both tied for second high point men with 13 points each, and Ballard with 10 points for third.

It May Seem Strange But. . . By CHARLIE XINSLEY, JR. Have you noticed the exceptionally large number of track and baseball men that have really started training now that Easter is a thing of the past, and future? All they get for lunch is hot tea, two slices of toast, and a stick of chewing gum. How does that old song go? "That's where my money goes." Doug. Blanton certainly cannot be called a ladies' hero. It is a known fact, that one day during the holidays, three of our popular young ladies had Doug seeking shelter. Any place is better than the place next to a woman, says Doug. By the way, he's the kind of fellow that not only walks a mile for a Camel but two miles for a Lucky Strike, in the rain. The result of the walk is "He's god a cold din his dose." I don't hear many cadets complaining about having to wear grey shirts. Did you see the inspection last Wednesday? Well, the beginning of grey shirts means a short month before the beginning of exams. AH-WAH. It is a known fact th...

PAGE SIX Club Ch DUCKS Easter! What a swell time the Duckies had although they were not together. There must be some attraction for Kitty Henning to spend Easter down on the Rappahannock river. Then, too, Dot Upchurch strayed all the way down to North Carolina. The rest stayed in Richmond. Wonder who the lucky boys were. Maybe one little girl's corsages are still lasting. It takes a right long time to wear four different ones. Well, here's hoping it won't seem so long 'till next Easter. GAMMA TAU The Gamma Tau enjoyed ? ? the holidays and had a whoopee time. 'N besides that, they had a house party, Friday nite, plenty of fun! Some more secrets —Waddy owes his success and personality to wimmin. Ranny owes his success to his curly locks.

ENGLISH DEMENT HEAD HIS JIMS • LIKED ID TEACH Miss Branch Names Romantic Bctets and Geometry As Favorite Subjects "I do not remember the time when I did not want to be a school teacher," reflected Miss Eva Branch, head of the English Department in this school. "Even when I was a little girl I used to the other children in the neighborhood together and teach them how to she continued as she put her'pencil down and demurely folded her hands. "What were your most interesting subjects in high school?" she was questioned. "I liked English Literature and mathematics best," the teacher replied. "The Romantic Poets were my favorites. "The Romantic Poets were I enjoyed Browning more than any other poet. Perhaps I should have taught math, rather than English," she mused. "I liked it a great deal and, made good marks on it in hgh school.

t>AGE FOUR JUSTICES ADD ON ANOTHER VICTORY TO LONG STRING Swamp Benedictine 14-0; Battling Honors of Day Go To Stewart John Marshall again added another victory to the long string when it swamped Benedictine last Wednesday by a score of 14-0. Alternating on the mound, Lane and Taylor held the Cadets to three safeties, while their teammates gathered in sixteen hits off McCarthy, who hurled for the Proctorites. The Ninth Streeters swept into a fast start, garnering five runs in the first inning and adding another in the second. The air-tight defense of the White and Blue team kept Benedictine from scoring when it seemed as if they threatened to "bust" the shut-out which their rivals seemed trying to get. Batting honors of the day went to Stewart, who in six trips to the bat, rapped out three singles and a double. Yorke hit safely thrice out of three times at the slate. Shade, John Marshall, rapped out the only homer of the day. Poh was the outstanding player for Benedictine...

It May Seem Strange But. . . By CHARLIE TINSLEY, JR. The cadets had a wonderful time last Tuesday being inspected by a government officer. A sigh of relief was given by all when it was all over. Now all we have to do is drill and await that eventful day in June. Oh gee, oh golly, oh gosh! Don't forget the senior boat trip that cames off in the near future. Although defeated by Newport News I think the troup that put on a play at William and Mary should be congratulated for taking second place. I understand that Jean Wilson was considered exactly "put" for her part as queen. Not bad. (That's what the audience said). Emmy Weatherall doesn't believe in just one date a week with that certain someone. She did give her reason for this, but I think it will be better if you ask her why. It won't be long now before old man experience will step down from his throne of knowledge and turn the reigns of the government over to his understudy. Meaning, of course, that it won't be long now before t...

Colonel Taylor Relates Tales About Civil War History Was Member Of Home Guard When Only Fourteen Years Old; Help® To Defend Richmond In 1864. (By Charlie Ryland) As a small boy I remember a visit with my father to Colonel Taylor, then commander of the Virginia section of the United Confederate Veterans. He was an old gentleman who lived in a spacious home on the Three Chopt Road. During the visit he told us of an experience of his boyhood and of the only battle he was in. "It was the first day of March in the year 1864. During the middle of the day reports began to come in that the city was to be attacked from the west and from the north. Refugees began to arrive in Richmond from both directions. The people became so excited that the alarm bell in the Capitol Square was rung and the Home Guard called out. The Home Guard consisted of all men over sixty and all boys under sixteen. It was divided, and sent to the north, and the west of the city. Colonel Taylor, then a boy of fourteen, ...

t*AGfi FOUR Justices Take Thirteenth Game Marshallite Wins Championship In Archery Meet JUSTICE DIAMOND MEN BRING VICTORY t TOTAL UP NOTCH Although not getting as many hits, and not playing as good a brand of ball as usual, John Marshall defeated McGuire's baseball team Tuesday afternoon at the Stadium, winning the thirteenth consecutive victory of the season. The Justices playing was certainly not up to par. Errors and loose ball playing were evident in numerous parts of the fracas; however the Justice machine jumped into an early lead in the first frame. An infield single by Shade, and errors on the part of McGuire's gave the Justice's three runs. Kahn, of McGuire's, drove a bat single through second base, which slipped past Barnes in center field, allowing Kahn to tag all four bases. After this, Taylor settled down and McGuire's did not score again. Henry Taylor pitched an excellent game of ball, allowing only four hits and striking out ten men. More to his credit is the fact tha...

It May Seem Strange But. . . By CHARLIE TINSLEY, JR. Mr. Galvin enjoyed himself immensly at Charlottesville last week when he went up to the state meet. Anyone would have thought his head was on a revolving base, it turned this way and that so much. It is a known fact that Coach Ewing has his weak moments. When Libby took second in the 440, the coach came running up to him and »«id "I could kiss you for that, Libby." You'd better watch him, June. When taking a picture of the cast for the play last week the cameraman asked Harold Hedley to please put on his lion's head. Hedley spoke up in astonishment and said "My golly, I've had it five minutes." The track team's burden (namely Deßiazi) had to get up at twenty minutes past five in Charlottesville to see the sunrise. Imagine a big whelp like him talking about how "charming" the sun rise is. It has been proven that one use of the period is to play the top part of the semi-colon. The "Hot Shots" are not going to use the Mosque for thei...

CHIEF CARETAKER HAS INTERESTING LIFE Mr. Nuckots Is A Hunting And Fishing Enthusiastic Swish, swish, swish, Up and down, up and down, up and down. Swish—"and I tell you we had one grand feast off those fish. Why we caught so many that we couldn't cook 'em all," declared Mr. Nuckols, chief caretaker of John Marshall, as he concluded his fish story andi at the same time gave the steps a vigorous polish with his brush. "I love to go fishing. I think I'm almost as bad as Mr. HarwoadJ", he said smiling. However, IM|r. Nuckols' enthusiasm for hunting almost rivals his enthusiasm for fis'hing. "What kird of game do you like to hunt?" his friend asked. "I like to hunt squirrels and turkeys more than anything," he replied. 'There's nothin' as good as a squirrel stew when you're hungry," he added as he s.T.acked his lips and sighed plaintively. "As for turkey—well I wouldn't give two chickens for a turkey", and he began to .brush some more. "How long have you been at John Marshall, Mr. Nuckol...

Track Squad Meets Central High The little speedsters and the ace weightmen of John Marshall's track squad were in a meet with Central High School of Washington on last Saturday afternoon at the Capital City. The Blue and White representatives left early Saturday morning, and they returned the same night. It was impossible to take t'.ie entire team on this trip, which is probably the last one this season. In the 440 Taylor, Libby and Patterson entered. The former three and Overton ran the relay. Libby also ran the 220; while Overton and Bullard ran the half-mile. The latter ran the mile also. Hodges, Bowen, and Lightfoot ran the Ihurdles. Garvin and Lightfoot were the high jumpers for the Blue and White team. The pole vaulting was done by Garvin. The Haase brothers, Carter and Duncan, were the weightmen. They threw the shot, javelin and discus. As this paper had to go to press before the meet was over, the results will be in next week's issu...

Ranny Wallace must be in love with an Imp. He's always sporting a Duckie bracelet. Naw, that can't be right. There must be some mistake. Thelma Pate is so anxious for people to know that she was with Hercules that she runs around bragging about it at the wrong time. Boat Trip! Boat trip! Boat trip! Rah! Rah! Rah! Man oh man!
