LIBRARY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA GIFT OF DIVISION OF EXTENSION NINETEEN HUNDRED AND THIRTY-TWO VOLUME THIRTEEN Published by Class of i 93 ALEXANDRIA HIGH SCHOOL ' Alexandria, Virginia MAY 2 3 73 virglnlana ' I ..C ■ r . ' t . -A-- ' 155aBH FOREWORD On June 10, we, the. Class of 1932, are leaving Alexandria High School. Our High School days are over. We are at the parting of our ways — the proverbially problematical crossroads; many of us will never meet again. If, in the future, this book can help us to turn back the years and in memory live again our High School days; if. as we turn its pages, we again hear the class bells ring, master again the principles of Euclid, hear Miss Ficklin quote “my friend Bill,’’ and work in the chemistry lab; if we can hear again the cheer on the field, again march in the Corps of Cadets, and debate in the Literary Society, then this book will have fulfilled its purpose. 4[2 F ' -opertycf The Library of Virginia ' Richmond, VA DEDICATION We, the Class of 1932, dedicate this, our edition of the Alecko, to our teacher and friend. Miss Charlene Madison Kiracofe, in appreciation of her guidance through our High School years. 3 ] ALEXANDRIA HIGH SCHOOL In Mcmoriam ALFRED CHURCHILL MOSS 1916-1931 ALECKO STAFF Editor-in-Chief Lillian Wigfield Associate Editor Francis Coleman Rosenbf.rger Society Editor Athletic Editor Sarah Carter Literary Adviser Miss Charlene Kiracofe Harold Gist Art Editors Assistant Art Editors Harold Siegel Stuart Abraham William Smith Art Adviser Mrs. Margaret Forshee Conway Brawner T ypist Advertising Manager Nellie Anderson Beth Gary Business Manager Subscription Manager Billy Backus Financial Adviser Miss Corinne Reardon Bonelle Thomas [6 LAST LAP STAFF Editor-in-Chief- Literary Editors News Editors Sports Editors ..

It is convenient that they traverse separate paths, otherwise there would be many cases of mashed toes, and when one has practically accepted four years of mashed toes in the pursuit of an education in Alexandria High School, he is decidedly deserving of a solitary path in which to wander and possibly to stray as he desires. It is good to be rid of school, the constant struggle to succeed, the monotony of routine, but it is not for long. College or the attempt to get a job stares the graduate full in the face unless he is one of the fortunate few whose position in life is secure. You may enjoy being rid of the necessity of pleasing teachers, but is it any harder than pleasing an inconsiderate employer, or “working” an already over-indulgent father for something you want very muchi’ School is very tiring when day after day you must see the same faces, visit the same classes, hear the same teachers propound the same theories until you are so familiar with the surroundings that should some of the scraps of paper that usually litter the aisles be missing, you would feel an utter stranger. Still it is no more tiring than anything else that must be done continually. Many of us must spend our entire lives doing some task that may or may not be distasteful but is continual. Is it not better to be able to look forward to the usual summer vacation from school than to hope that your “boss” will allow you two weeks’ with pay instead of one? You may gather from the preceding lines that school days are happy ones, but of what consequence to the Senior. His day is past. School is a preparatory measure; you can not expect it to last forev er. Why worry or shed tears over what is past and so far behind that it will never again touch you. Why be apprehensive of what the future may have in store It is so far ahead there is no evidence of it. Live for the present, enjoy it to the utmost; what if the weather man does prophesy rain tomorrow, you can sleep all day. If the Senior has wasted the preceding years, has not gained as much as he should have from his course, this is no time for repentance. Make the most of graduation. It happens but once and if you miss it this trip, there is no return ticket. Graduation does not mean that an erstwhile sheltered student is thrust upon a cold, harsh world, inexperienced and unused to the buffets he may receive. On the contrary, a student is used to facing the trials that confront him. The decisions that he must make at present are as momentous as any he will ever make. His job now is as hard as it will ever be. He will gain experience and profit accordingly, but the basis for this experience was laid in school. The ability to absorb and to take part in those things that surround him is cultivated in school. To summarize, he is exposed to life while in school and anything that may occur after graduation is just a continuity of what has gone before. Life is not lived in a day, a month, or even a year. It is continuous as a motion picture reel, so make the most of it before “finis” is ffashed upon the screen. Henry Blondheim, ’32.

From my viewpoint, that of a sixteen-year-old boy, the aspect seems terrible. To me, life is sweet. I am young, happy, and care- free. I have no worries, no troubles, and no responsi- bilities. How could I be other than happy? Merely to be alive, particularly in the spring, is wonderful. To breathe the fresh, clean air of a bright spring morning; to feel the gentle warmth of the rising sun; and to know that your whole life lies before you — what more could anyone ask? I want to live forever and be young forever. The only shadow upon an otherwise perfectly happy existence is that one irre- pressible thought, which, far distant though it seems, I know to be inevitable; that of growing old. R. D., ’32 C ' EST TOUT For this is wisdom — To love, to live. To take what Fate or the gods may give. To ask no question, to make no prayer. To kiss the lips and caress the hair — Speed passion’s ebb, as one greets its flow — To have — to hold — and, in time, let go.

Yet there is still a great distance to that Utopian summit on which, after attainment, we may bask in the glorious privileges of our full-fledged Seniorship. You know, if we really look closely enough at that golden pinnacle, we can discern the Seniors, going about their individual tasks, and, now and then, we see several figures more brilliantly clothed than the others. These personages, we surmise, are some of the outstanding citizens of that perfect republic. Reflect for a few moments: if we, the present Junior class, pull together in amicable cooperation, it will be a relatively short time before we stand togther on that airy peak and shoulder the duties of the noble Seniors. It ought to be worth the effort. But just what will it mean to each of us Juniors to know and to feel that he is qualified to join that exclusive band? Will it not mean the realization of all our hopes and ambitions? Shall we not have become the highest citizens of that coveted community, ready to participate in its functions? We may traverse the streets of A. H. S., our Capitol Square, with our shoulders erect, our heads held high, with never a fear that our armor of quiet dignity will be shattered. But this is enough of day dreaming when there is work to be done! So, with one long, lingering glance at the glittering object of our dreams, let us turn our attention to the Junior Curriculum. By completing this successfully the world is ours and we take possession of that far-off Utopia. Then upward ho! Thurman Baker, ’33.

First, does a Sophomore have an idea of Heaven? We hope so. Is Heaven getting all A’s on a report or is it passing all subjects with D’s? To the studious pupil his Eden might easily begin with A. Pray forgive my punning. To the romantic pupil report cards would be miles away from his Paradise. His idea of Heaven would be a nice romantic spot with a rising moon, a parked car, and thee. The athletic student would have his own opinion of Heaven. There probably would be a track meet or a basketball game in continuous progress. To the student interested in dramatics Heaven might present another side. Behind the scenes there would be comedies, tragedies, and melodrama with St. Peter acting as stage-doorman. A lengthy discussion could be launched. We shan’t dispute but shall take it for granted that every Sophomore has his very own idea of Heaven. Mine, however, is a very delightful place where everyone is helpful, courteous, truthful, and kind. All work together for the common good. Sincerity, politeness, and cooperation reign supremely here. Let our Sophomore class exercise some of these abstract qualities, especially cooperation, and we shall have one of the best Junior classes there has ever been. If each Sophomore puts forth all that is best in him, our future Junior class will be a complete success. We have had a splendid year as Sophomores, safely guided by our president. We have been successful in every event we have undertaken. As Juniors we must surpass this record of ours and be proud of our Junior class, too. Let’s all get together and create a small “Heaven” here in A. H. S. J. M. S., ’34.

We find ourselves in a new world — a world of more serious, more difficult and varied things. The problem of formulating our desires into ambitions has come to the fore. The immediate goal of a Freshman is the acquisition of a diploma. The freedom given a Freshman greatly encourages a feeling of independence and maturity. The goal towards which we are all working when we begin our high school career affords every Freshman the belief that no matter how endless and difficult his tasks may appear they are to some avail and there is a reward in store — evanescent as that reward may seem now. Activities in which the student may participate are exceedingly stimulating. They serve as a means of awakening in him interest in the welfare of his school, a desire for her supremacy, and a feeling of affection for her — right or wrong — “She’s my school’’ — a fallacious sentiment, perhaps, but “school spirit’’ is sometimes a trifle sentimental. Hence the student is made to feel that he has a certain responsibility which will determine the welfare of his school. With the many advantages which the school offers, the ambitions of a Freshman are made to expand and guide him to the field in which he is best suited to benefit himself and the world at large.

THEODORE FICKLIN LITERARY SOCIETY President BONELLE THOMAS Vice-President EDWARD HiTT Secretary-Treasurer EVELYN MORRIS Thp Theodore Ficklin Literary Society, the oldest club in the High School, was organized about twenty years ago. It was called the Alexandria High School Literary Society until about twelve years ago, when it was renamed in honor of Theodore H. Ficklin, one of the original teachers of the Public School System at its organization in January, 1871. The purpose of the club is to create interest along literary lines, such as debates, oratory, and reading, both grave and gay. The Society, this year, has focused its interest on Southern Literature. For participation in the activities of the club the members are awarded literary emblems. During the Christmas season the club had a delightful party, and the members are looking forward to another such occasion in the spring. Miss Ficklin, our sponsor, has given us many worth-while suggestions for which we are grateful. As this most successful year draws to a close, we look forward with pleasure and interest to a repetition of social and intellectual success. B. T., ’32. THRIFT CLUB President MARGUERITE PENN Vice-President EVA HENDERSON Secretary THELMA SEYMOUR In the fall of 1928 the Thrift Club of Alexandria High School was organized under the supervision of Mrs. Ruth Elgin. The club is made up of a cashier and an assistant cashier from each room in the school. This body meets the third Wednesday of each month, such an arrangement giving each room a complete representation. The duties of a cashier are similar to those of a regular bank cashier. The goal of this organization is to encourage each member to deposit each Tuesday of the school year. This money is deposited in one of the city banks. We are very proud of the achievements of this club throughout the past three years, in that it has reached the goal of 100%. This means that each and every student in the High School, present on Tuesday (which is banking day) has made deposits during the whole year. This practice has, therefore, cultivated the habit which no doubt will mean much in the later life of the student. Not only does it have a future value to each individual, but it serves a very practical purpose in enabling the student to save money with which to help meet the increasing expenses as he advances toward his High School graduation. T. V. S. ETIQUETTE CLUB The “Knife-and-Fork-How-Do-You-Do Club” is quite the proper thing at the High School this year. This particular club, under the sponsorship of Miss Kiracofe, was divided into four groups, each of which gathered itself together for a meeting once a month; and though its activities were short-lived, due to a change in schedule the second semester, there’s no question but what there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this picture now. We eat our asparagus with our fingers, we never order chicken salad for the fourth time, and we have a perfect flair for introductions. If you see us gentlemen walking down the street between our girl friends these days, you’ll know it’s simply because they insisted upon sharing us equally. ELGIN ETIQUETTE CLUBS Presidents MARGUERITE MILAN, THURMAN BAKER Vice-Presidents LAVINIA WAYLAND, EDWARD KAISER Secretary -Treasurers ERANCES DAVIS, THELMA SEYMOUR, HELEN ShifLET Hello, Everybody. This is station EEC broadcasting. Can’t you imagine that some “bold knave’’ must have dropped a gentle hint? Don’t repeat it! They thought we needed Emily Post for an adviser, so an Etiquette organization was formed. Are we polite? Well, just take a peep in at our Alma Mater. Our first “booming success’’ was an informal party staged under the auspices of the Misses Baker and Milan who acted as hostesses. Oh, such fun and refresh- ments! Never fear, we used our manners. Can you not picture us dear little messengers of politeness, diligently dis- cussing the tactics of the right thing to do on the appointed day of meeting? Please, dear pupils, if you have any problems that you are troubled about, in the way of etiquette, visit our station. Our aim is helpfulness. We’re signing off, but remember if you’re in doubt as to our ability, write us in care of Alexandria High School. Good-night all ! PEP CLUB President ANGELA BELL Vice-President FRANCES GAINES Secretary MARGUERITE PENN Treasurer BONELLE THOMAS The Pep Club began another successful year sponsored by Miss Eddie Dickert. A meeting was called and all classes were well represented. After the election of officers, the next thing on our minds was the initiation of the Freshmen. A very successful stunt night was given by representatives of the various classes with the kind assistance of the teachers. There were high school badges sold which also added to our funds. Our next aim was to give to the football team their annual supper which was voted the best yet, and that means something. GLEE CLUB President MARGUERITE MONCURE Vice-President MARGARET LEE Secretary-Treasurer SARAH CARTER Faculty Adviser MISS YATES Pianist MARGARET LEE You’ve heard Glee Clubs, no doubt, but have you ever heard A. H. S.’s? If you haven’t, you should, and if you have — well, you may be the judge. If you saw “South Is South,’’ presented by the Barrymore Dramatic Club, you heard us and saw us, too! We are locally known as the “Mocking Birds,’’ a title that needs no explanation. In preparing for an appearance we first study the words of a song so that we may feel the song and put expression into our melody. We specialize in two-part group singing. Of course, we do solo work, too. We take great delight in staying after school to learn new songs. That’s unusual, isn’t it? RADIO CLUB President WYCLIFF CLAGGETT Intense interest has been shown in this club since its organization last fall, and, although it is still in its infancy, it has made rapid strides under the able direction of Mr. Coleman. The Club is composed of boys who are interested in the field of radio. Its purpose is two-fold; first, to teach us something of radio, and, second, to give us pleasure. Our members have an electric radio, from which we derive much enjoyment. The first half of our period we devote to the discussion of topics ranging from the history of Radio to modern broadcasting stations. The latter part of the period we entertain ourselves with programs through the medium of our own radio. K. K. President NELLIE ANDERSON Vice-President JOSEPHINE CATON Secretaries - JOSEPHINE BLAIR, ROVERTA ARNOLD Treasurer ISABELLE ALLEN This year the K. K. started out with an entirely new organization. We feel we have accomplished a great deal. In addition to our two programs a month, and a Christmas party, we have worked for the Last Lap and various other school organizations that needed typing done. The second semester we gained a number of new members though we lost a few old stand-bys. Among the new members are Geraldine Pulzone, Annie Mayo, Elizabeth Parks, Teresa Crump, and Barbara Ewald. The results of the Gregg Shorthand Tests have been very gratifying. Everyone has two or three certificates to her credit as well as the beneficial training given us by our excellent instructor. Miss Grace King. QUILL AND PALM President ROY JENNIER Vice-President CHILTON BRUIN Secretary-Treasurer LOUIS SCHREINER The Quill and Palm is composed of thirty members. The club this year presented gold footballs and basketballs to those who played on the championship teams and also presented letters to those who earned them in the sport in which they participated. It has done all that it possibly could to help the Athletic Association. 7: MILITARY CLUB President ROY JENNIER Secretary -Treasurer EVERETT TURNER The Military Club was organized October 20, 1931, through the advice of Col. Deems and with the approval of Mr. Moncure. This club is composed of the officers and non-commissioned officers of the Alexandria High School Cadet Corps. Our purpose is a better understanding of the fundamentals of military science and the maintenance of a well-trained group of competent members to give aid to the Civic Authorities in case of a public disaster. So far the members of this club have enthusiastically responded to its ideals and we hope that its future members will follow their example. E. L. T„ ’32. OTHER CLUBS The Herodotus History Club, named for that venerable Greek “Father of History” was organized early in the year under the direction of Mrs. Elgin. The work of the club has been divided into two parts. During the first semester the club devoted its time to a study of the League of Nations, using an official text of the League of Nations Association. At the close of this first semester’s work, members of the Club took the Sixth National Competitive Examination on the League for High Schools, prepared by the educational department of the League Association. During the second semester the work of the club has been of a different order — the study of historic Alexandria and, more generally, of Virginia as a whole. The Liwski Stamp Club has been very popular during the year with the philatelically inclined of the School, and the School has many followers of this “sport of kids and kings.” The success of the Club has been due to a very large degree to the work of its sponsor, Mr. Liwski. The Junior Welfare Club, under the direction of Mrs. Parker, has done splendid work during the year. It has had charge of civic welfare work in which the school has participated — the donations to the Alexandria Day Nursery, the School’s Thanksgiving Offering to the United Charities, and other equally commendable activities. The Kodak Club, although it has been organized only during the second semester, has aroused much intelligent interest in amateur photography. The photograph contest, conducted by the Club, which the entire student body was invited to enter, was very popular, and promises to become an annual affair. The French Club? Parlez-vous francais? Well, if you don’t there’s no use in telling you about the French Club because its members are strictly parisien. The Public Speaking Club, under the direction of Miss Eleanor Lindsay Appich, has accomplished much in the forensic field during the year. Members of the Club, won the School finals in the National Oratorical Contest, and members represented the School in the debating, public speaking, and public reading divisions of the State Literary Contests held at the University of Virginia. DRATVIATICS THE THESPIANS President WILLIAM SMITH Vice-President FRANCES GAINES Secretary-T reasurer FRANCIS HEPBURN The Thespians were organized in September, 1931, under the name of The Ficklin Dramatic Club. In the middle of the first term, upon the suggestion of Miss Ficklin, the name was changed and since then the society has been known as “The Thespians.” The purpose of this club is solely to promote interest in the drama, both modern and ancient. Two very attractive plays, “The Dream That Came True” and “Crinoline and Candle-light,” were presented in March and the “Endeavors” will as usual be presented in May, this time under the auspices of this club.

SKIT CLUB The Skit Club was organized last year by the Freshmen who presented the play entitled “June Time.” These charter members kept the club in action this year and invited their friends to join it, but we are sorry to say that club meetings have been impossible since the change in Activity Period. The members have worked hard for the success of the club and hope to be able to resume its work next year. V. E. BARRYMORE DRAMATIC CLUB Presidents VIRGINIA PARKER, HERNDON DeCOSS Vice-Presidents HERNDON DeCOSS, LUCILLE CARROLL Secretary -Treasurer LUCILLE CARROLL, JUNE PADGETT Assistant Directors MABEL FLORENCE, VIRGINIA PARKER A new club, the Barrymore Dramatic Club, was organized September, 1931, under the able direction of Miss Mary W. Dickinson, a new member of our faculty. The club was named after the Barrymore family, as one might suppose. The purpose of the club is to interest all members in the best to be found in drama and to develop dramatic ability among its members. The routine of the club is very interesting: business comes first and then a program usually follows. On roll there are about forty members, who willingly cooperate with the officers for the good of the club. Students of ’31 and ' 32 will always remember the play, “South Is South,’’ given by us on December 12, 1931. All parts in the play were well taken. One will especially remember June Padgett as Virginia Bankston, the heroine and blushing bride: and William Gael, as the hero and the groom. As for devoted lovers, no better can be found than Herndon DeCoss and Dorothy Allen. Billy Reece and Ora White were a scream as the faithful old negro servants. Edward 7 ' aylor took a wonderful part as the young devoted son, with George Rutledge as Jimmy, his playmate. Lucille Carroll displayed un- usual dramatic ability in her characterization of the aristocratic Southern grand- mother. Virginia Parker was simply grand as the dignified widow, who finally succeeded in vamping Virginia Bankston’s father, who was James Luckett. J. C. P., ’33: H. W. D., ’32. +[8o SOUTH IS SOUTH THE SEASON In the well-regulated high school annual there is no place for animadver- sion, even of theatrical efforts; so even if the efforts of 1931-1932 were entirely of those well precedented types of high school plays, for which there would be no audiences if the adolescent performers were orphans and had no Aunt Matildas and Uncle Williams, we should have been nice about it and should have done our best to conceal the fact under elegant literary verbiage. Ambiguous circumlocution, though, is more or less unnecessary when the offerings have been as well above mediocrity as have those of the present season. South Is South, with southern Mary Waller Dickinson directing, and replete with atmosphere of the best mint julep tradition, was entirely satis- factory. The grandmother was aristocratic, the heroine beautiful, the hero gallant, and the servants faithful. The play, of course, ended with the march from Lohengrin. Paul Bladen Bayliss as the minister, however, was a strain on our credulity. Crinoline and Candle-light was more than a very attractive entree on the Bicentennial menu. It was simple and it was effective — a masked ball, powdered wigs, gold braid and blue and buff uniforms, and Washington stepping from a painting as lightly as The Lady of the Portrait of The Beau of Bath. The Dream That Came True was Miss Ficklin’s outstanding production of the season. The heavy roles were carried by the veterans, Lillian Wigfield, James Luckett, and Sarah Carter. Marguerite Moncure excelled as the slightly noisy landlady (but we do believe that she would have much prferred playing Juliette.) Conway Brawner in a Lord Byron collar and with the inevitable monocle more than pleased the audience. We remember, too, though with all profundity, we can not make clear just why, Margaret Fenwick Monroe (yes, Peggy) . Nor is this all. We have yet to witness A Flower of Yeddo, a Japanese affair. The Maker of Dreams, and the present season’s edition of the annual Endeavors. F. C. R. ATHLEtICS FOOTBALL “Good! They’ve gotta be good!” And indeed they were good to defeat Lane High School. Lane led H-O at the end of the first half, but when the final whistle sounded, 14-13 gave us the victory. On a foreign field, and handicapped by injuries, our team nevertheless managed to push over the victory. The deciding factor was Bruin’s placement kick for extra point. As a result of our victory, we became champions of North-eastern Virginia. Of course our season opened with the usual routine training and practice games. Our team started off with a 7-0 defeat of National I ' raining School and then lost three straight to William and Mary Frosh, Hopewell, and Western. However, they enjoyed a good day to defeat St. Johns 20-0. This was followed by a defeat at the hands of National Training School. And then came the climax of the schedule — Washington and Lee, our traditional rivals. They were not a league rival but we had to beat them for old time’s sake, and to revenge last year’s defeat. This we did with the aid of Jimmy Luckett, ineligible under league rules, and a perfect air attack. The final score was 14-7. After an intervening game, we played our only league game, that with Fredericksburg. We entered the game as favorites, in view of our victory over Washington and Lee, who had previously defeated Fredericksburg. We finished as winners by a score of 13-0 4(84 Our team was then asked to compete in the State finals as a result of winning District competition. Lane High, of Charlottesville, was our first opponent. By fighting to the end and by staging a brilliant comeback, Alex- andria overcame a 13-point lead. At the end. Bruin, who had been out with an injured shoulder, was rushed in to kick the deciding point, making the score 14-13. What a game! Our season as a whole was a very successful one. Most of our defeats were suffered at the hands of Class A high schools or strong prep schools. Swavely Prep gave us our worst defeat, 47-0. Our team this year showed no outstanding star. Above all it was built on teamwork. They were all good; but we must mention a dominant figure, Sheads, a Junior, who, at the present rate, should be all-State when he graduates. The ’31 -’32 team was one of the greatest we have ever had. Let’s hope for more to follow. Many of our men will graduate this year, but we wish Pete Jackson, our captain-elect for next year, good luck! Summary of Games Won Lost 5 6 BASKETBALL A. H. S., having won District honors, journeyed to Charlottesville, easily won the first two games with Waynesboro and Harrisonburg High Schools, and fought through that with Lee High, of Staunton, to win 18-17. By so doing, we added to our title of Eastern State Champions in football, that of champions in basketball. Practice started early this year during the latter part of football season. This was very beneficial in producing new material for the squad. Our first scrimmage was one of note. Episcopal barely managed to nose us out by one point. The schedule was officially opened on December 1 1 with an overwhelming victory over Manassas, one of our District rivals. In the games following, we lost none to state teams, defeating as our strongest rivals, Hopewell High and the Charlottesville Lives. Our outstanding victory of the year was that over Washington-Lee High, our old rivals, who were held to one field goal and a score of 25-6. Eredericksburg was also defeated by a large margin. But Washington-Lee was not so easy on its home floor and Alexandria barely managed to squeeze out a 16-14 victory. Incidentally, this game broke a jinx of “Squire” Given, that of not being able to win any games at Washington-Lee. We closed our District games with a post-season win over Fredericksburg by a score of 33-25. We lost only one game to a high school of our standing, Hyattsville; but that defeat was avenged by a victory on our home floor. All other defeats were suffered from Washington schools, namely, two to Western, two to St. John’s College, prep school champions of Washington, and one to Eastern, high school champions of Washington. As a result of our District victories we were invited to attend the Eastern Half-State tournament at Charlottesville. Our first game was with Woodrow Wilson High of Waynesboro, which we won easily by a 33-12 score. Then on the following morning we defeated Harrisonburg High 37-18. In the final game with Robert E. Lee High School, of Staunton, Captain Schreiner led the team to an 18-17 victory in the closest and fastest game of the year for the championship. We cannot praise our diminutive captain too much. “Nubby” led the way all season. When we slowed up he gave us new life with spectacular shooting. He certainly should be All-State. Alexandria can boast the best high school player in the state. “Buddy” Horton, the other forward, was the outstanding find of the year. The Horton-Schreiner combination was the fastest, smoothest, and best shooting forward combination in the District and in the Charlottesville tournament. But while “Nubby” and “Buddy” were carrying on the offensive work, Jackson, Bruin, and Gist were successfully guarding our goal. But here is Captain Schreiner’s opinion of the team. He states, “In my opinion, this year’s team is the best the high school has ever seen in all-round ability, especially passwork.” Next year’s team will have a standard to attain. We are looking forward to a good team under the leadership of Dick Clift. He will have excellent prospects in Jackson, Burrell, Moore, and Embrey. The latter two have been lost to the squad this year because of scholastic difficulties but their aid will be appreciated and felt next year. TWINS SEXTET With a brand new inspiration in Miss Erankhouser, our coach, the basket- ball girls started out to do big things this year. The team was about equally divided as to its experienced and inexperienced players, but the good old fighting spirit was in everyone, and that ' s what makes a six. We were fortunate enough to have Angela Bell and Josephine Caton in forward positions, who, we all know, filled these places capably. Center positions were filled by Catherine Moriarty, side center, and Helen Carter, center. We could not forget the playing of these two girls and better still, they are to be back next year. With Margaret Hawes and Alice Haley as guards, we were bound to feel at ease: these girls showed us their ability to play basketball. No team is complete with out its substitutes — ours were Lillian Sheppard, Clara Devine, Vivian Eeagans, Virginia Rollins, Barbara Davis, Luta Davis, and Shirley Breedlove, who are to be given credit for their faithfulness and support. To our manager. Marguerite Penn, and her assistant, Charlotte Dyer, we owe a real debt of gratitude, which we are attempting, at least, to express. We closed the season with a feeling of accomplishment, thanks to the coach and the girls! Captain, Frances Gaines, ' 32 . BASEBALL “Squire” Given called baseball practice as soon as the unusually cold March weather would permit. About forty candidates appeared on the first day but this number gradually decreased until only twenty were left. Uniforms were issued during the early part of the season to fifteen men. Alexandria made a bad beginning, bowing to Eastern, high school champions of the District of Columbia, 4-1. However, she redeemed herself with a 13-2 victory over Lee-Jackson five days later. We were next the victims of Central and Business on our own field, losing to Central by a score of 7-5 and to Business 6-5 in ten innings. Both games were lost by errors. Alexandria next journeyed to Charlotte Hall and won from this prep school 8-5. This trip was the joke of the year, for one carload of boys was fined for passing a boulevard stop. Lunny to us but not to the guilty. The Maroon and Orange barely managed to nose out Washington-Lee 6-5 in a ten-inning thriller slowed up by showers. Lollowing this win we lost our fourth straight game to a Washington high school, namely. Western, losing 8-2, and a short time later to Business 3-2. But we took the lead in District competition by conquering Lredericksburg here 8-2 in a slugging victory. It remains to be seen whether or not our team will win District honors. We want them to be at the top especially this year in order that we may make a clean sweep in all sports. Our team is a slugging one. They outhit their opponents, but in most cases their games have been lost because of errors at crucial moments. Outstanding on our team is the battery, Hudson and Schreiner, the best in the District. In addition we have Heffling, Saffelle, and Titcomb as pitchers. The infield is composed of “Big Mitt” Fletcher, first base: “Mac” Carr, second base: “Jimmy” Bruin, shortstop, and “Reds” McMenamin, third base. Frank Brewer is utility infielder. The outfield is composed of Roy Jennier, left field: Dicky Clift, center field, and “Inspiration” Baber, right field. Substitute out- fielders are Horton, Mankin, and Backus. The outstanding player of the year is Dicky Clift, who at one time had a batting streak of seven straight hits. His accurate pegs have also held many runs on third at critical times. TRACK The Track Team, uncier the skillful coaching of “Joe” Duncan, threatens to bring forth championship teams as soon as enough interest is aroused to give the coach sufficient material for all events. Unable to send a full team to the Virginia Track and Field Meet held at Charlottesville on May 13 and 14, Alexandria, nevertheless, managed to tie for fifth place with six points, and to run second in the relay in a stirring race. Mankin of Alexandria placed second in the class B 100-yard dash and third in the 220-yard dash. Bruin ran fourth in the latter event. Crouch, who was leading the 100-yard dash, stumbled and fell, to lose his chance of victory. In the 880-yard relay Alexandria was given the outside lane, and was thus handicapped. It was due to this fact alone that she was barely defeated by Hampton after Bruin had made a game finish to take second place a few yards before the tape. The relay team was composed of Crouch, Bowman, Mankin, and Bruin. At the time of this writing Alexandria has had only one meet, a triple event with Episcopal and Washington and Lee. Alexandria lost to Episcopal, but nosed out Washington and Lee 13-8. The biggest meet of the year will be held on May 18 with Hyattsville High, Washington and Lee High, and Alexandria competing. The members of the team are: Jennier Bruin Carr Henderson Routzhan Weimer Crouch Mankin Sheads Southard Bowman Horton Clift Jackson L. Jacors H. Kennedy C. Brawner M. Snyder J. Carlton RIFLE TEAM MEMBERS D, Simpson R. Warner w. Gordon B. Turner R. Goode A. Edwards I. Redman J. Robey F. Simpson E. Turner The members of the rifle team practiced hard all during the fall and in February were informed that they had placed second in the Corps Area Match which included teams from all the schools of our type in Pennsylvania. Mary- land, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. As a result our team was selected to represent the Corps Area in the National Match which includes teams from all parts of the United States and possessions thereof. Incidentally this is the first time that a team in any sport of our school has advanced to a point where it has had the honor of participating in a National Match and we are justly proud of them and offer them our most hearty congratulations. The individual standings of the National Match were as follows: CADETS E. Turner 734 R. Warner 721 L. Jacobs 713 J. Robey 701 F. Simpson 690 I. Redman 685 R. Goode 682 M. Snyder 677 C. Brawner 671 V.

THE CORPS OF CADETS THE CORPS OF CADETS The stern and snappy military air once again invades the regions of the Alexandria High School. The clang of arms, the sound of cadets’ commands at muster snapped here and there add to the picturesque daily drills. On the completion of the Corps’ third year, a great improvement is detected; without question it is a progress with its source in the heart of each Cadet. He made it, he named it, and he will pass it on with honors and a good record. Those who receive its badge will carry it on so that its glory will shine brighter and brighter as the years go by. Colonel Clarence Deems, a soldier and a gentleman, is our guiding star from West Point. From the field of a soldier’s experiences, he appears as a very capable and influential professor of military science and tactics: his instructions, his kind advice, his everready assistance will never be neglected in the memoirs of a Cadet. As we advance along the ranks we think we would be losing an opportunity if we failed to record the latest statistics. This year the military interest of the boys has been challenged by that of the girls. The Girls’ Cadet Corps deserves an equal amount of credit from the school. Between October and January dances, sponsored by the Cadet Corps, were held at Elks’ Hall and the Virginia Public Service Auditorium. Such celebrations quickened the spirit of the Corps tremendously. The excellent record of the rifle team in the George Mason and Third Corps Area matches paved the way for a position in the National Contest, whose outcome is, as yet, undetermined. The Corps’ participation in the Manassas and George Washington Parades was highly commended. Surely, when there is such a presentation, it will not escape the notice of our school and city. Such recognition is a factor in furnishing backbone for the Corps. In every phase of Cadet life an indisputable spirit of cooperation prevailed throughout the ranks. In coordination with Colonel Deems, there is strong assistance in the offices of the Superintendent of Public Schools, and of the Principal of the High School, Mr. Bowton and Mr. Moncure, of which coopera- tion the Corps is highly appreciative. But now as the command “Dismissed!” is heard along the ranks, we likewise “stack arms” and “pass the torch.” George Craten, ’32. CADET ROSTER COMMISSIONED STAFF C. Fletcher Captain M.
