We shall each open a new door, leading to new highways, and we may never meet again. If, in the future years, when we are scattered over the world, this book can turn back the years for us and let us relive, in memory, our High School days, if, as v ' e turn its pages we can see again the old familiar corridors, master the principles of geometry, and proudly pass in review with fellow cadets, then this book will have served its purpose — a reminder of something never to be forgotten. ‘ ' Page Tieo Propej Cj: 0 The Ubiwyof Virgfn, , 3JL ...M, ' = ' -4 We, the Class of 1935, dedicate this, our edition of the Alecko, to our teacher, helper, and friend.

Acound Tage Twenty-three Class Pro “The world moves on” — come day; go day — and life begins at 8:40 — — - Funny how a period of five years can contain such numerous experiences and changes. This time five years ago, the Senior Class of ’35 was looking eagerly toward the future, to graduation day, to the prom, to last minutes of “farewells” and “so-longs” — to the beginning of real “Life” with a capital “K.” I pick up my evening paper, purchased from an old, feeble, and very un- fortunate man on the street corner of this busy city, Richmond. Here is an article of great interest to me. And no wonder; it is headed “Washington, D. C.” and above the article, gracing the page with its simple and sweet beauty, is Margaret — Miss Margaret Brinckman (“Brinky” to you, chump). She makes her debut, her bow to Society this week. She’ll fit in all right; that young lady has class. And, oh! Speaking of class, the ever alert and spry Mary Lewis has a dancing class of promising amateurs out on the West Coast. Received this news from Topping Bradley who is the top in radio. He went west and came back almost famous. Who is this Morton Downey person? How I enjoyed reading the letter I received from Celeste Gorham — still residing in old Alexandria. She keeps me “posted” on all the progress made by the pals of my high school days. Celeste is still winning “intellectual” contests. She seems to be winning a contest of love also. She saw Edna Weiner; employed she was by a grade- A dentist in D. C. ; she does everything but restore fallen hair; with Edna we connect the other two, Rosie and Annie; what rascals! But they have gone places, too; Rosie is the nurse she longed to be; don’t be surprised if she owns the darned hospital one of these days. Annie is now a Mrs. — good ole Annie — still trying to look out for “Sis.” She is happy, and that counts. Did you see where she won a cup for record swimming this past year? Guess who blew the roof off the house the other day — Sonny Roland. He will invent a toothless chicken if he doesn’t let up — Heh! Heh! Drop over to Chesapeake Bay some summer day and see who’s slapping hot dogs in rolls. Why, Paul Caton! Is that what Mr. Lindsey taught you? Moxley Irvin owns all the battleships down in Augusta, Georgia. Did you ever see a battleship in Augusta? Gosh, did all the young men who graduated from A. H. S. turn out to be newspaper men in one way or the other. Tom Marcus and Albie Jacobson ‘Page Pmnty-four •Si fairly rule the old black and white sheet nowadays, and Kate Alfriend — what a woman! — can really go to town when writing up her bit on America’s star fullback, Eddie Beach. Why, Kate knows every ball player from Maine to Florida. Lottie Dove and Jeanne Nalls happen to be sunning together on the beach at Miami. Lottie is still looking for her ideal. Marvin Collins’ new picture, “Life in a Mining Camp Town,’’ comes to our theater next month; as a boxer Marvin makes a dandy lover, but a real boxer is Marion Pulzone; Baer shrinks when he hears the name of the great Pulzone. Guess who is working on Wall Street? Yes, you ar e right. Once with a good start you can win; Mary Simpson, Evelyn Mendelson, Dorothy Apperson, and Edna Apperson are receiving nice little salaries; Miss King has taught those 40 fingers to go places on a typewriter. Walter Cornnell and Winnie Jefferies have graduated with honors from West Point. That’s the old spirit! Anne Monroe, Marjorie Garvey, Janet Otley, Lynde Crocker, Katherine Dunn, and Margaret Brinckman have surely stuck together; their vacation this season is to be spent abroad. Boy, that’s lasting friendship. Jerry Rhodes and Gladys Lee are sailing happily on the matrimonial seas. • Florence Turner is still flitting around like a butterfly, but this time she is fluttering around Hubby. Alice Herring, Harriet Baggett, and Mary Greenwood put work before pleasure. Keep those chins up, girls. Isabelle Rainey isn’t a bit taller. She teaches Kindergarten up in the big city of Chicago and loves school, doesn’t she? The owner of a haberdashery store, Norman Cary is the pride of his family. We “figure” that Lucie Reynolds will be shipped to Paris one of these days. Well, she can wear clothes. Wonder why Billy Ridgeley decided that business would be better out West? Don’t let her escape. Bill. Earl Barnett is salesman at the Blue Ridge Coal Company, a man’s job if there ever was one. But does that coal get under your skin! Turn your dial to station WJZ on Thursday night and hear Mary Adams go south on all popular numbers. You can’t keep a song out of that gal’s throat. That little cottage with rose bushes and honey suckle has become a reality. Jerrie Carlton is the queen of her own little realm. So, I have scanned the pages of letter, note, and newspaper, and my heart is at ease to know all those used-to-be pals are traveling Life’s road happily and prosperously. ‘T ' age Twenty-five l age Twenty-six J Last lUill and Teslamenl We, the Senior Class of Alexandria High School, being of sound mind and under no undue pressure, do therefore make, ordain, publish, and declare this to be our last WILL and TESTAMENT. I, Kate Alfriend, will my ability to sports writing to no one, for I have no equal. I, Eddie Beach, leave my dimples to Betty Worsham who is in need of them.

I, William Riddick, will my intelligence to Milford Cowling. I, Elmer Ridgeley, bequeath my ability to complete a four-year course in six years to Leslie Arnold. We, Annie and Rose Shapiro, leave our athletic ability to the next set of twins that comes to High School. I, Jimmy Simpson, will my success as a study hall monitor to Courtland Davis, in the hope that he will be as good as I was. I, Lewis Tesh, leave my great capacity for learning to Edward Einnegan. I, Joyce Waller, leave my dancing propensities to Shirley Major. Tage Twenty-seven lUire Tappin This is station A. H.

Be careful, Miss Dove. “Flash! Another historical fact has been established. Mary Lewis and Bill Ridgeley are still ‘arm-in-arming’ it and me thinks this is a ‘till-death-do- them-part’ compact. “Flash! Cassanova Winnie Jefferies has conscientiously and scrupulously divided his time among Virginia Nichols, Marjorie Garvey, and Celeste Gorham. Can he settle down to one, or is he just a philanderer? “Flash! Carleton Coakley and Celeste Gorham are at it again. Whoa! They have had a fight. Slips! They made up again. Nope! Another quarrel. Friends again ! Enemies! Friends! Enemies! Friends! “Flash!

More power to you, boys. “Flash! William Riddick smiled very broadly when Jane Purvis won the girls’ public speaking prize.

It will be our last year in dear old A. H. S. For three years we have worked together and have had many happy experiences. Next year we shall enter the new George Washington High School. The school will bear an honorable name. We think of this with great pride. Alexandria was the hometown of Washington — naturally a contributory factor in the naming of the school. Washington was the first man to donate money for public schools in the United States. Our class will be the first graduating class. Many of the ensuing customs of the new school will depend upon us for their installation. If we wish to start new methods, our willingness and cooperation will count. We shall try to make our Student Council what it should be, and we shall attempt to make the school feel that the Council is an integral part of its development. We want the school paper to be bigger and better. We want more school spirit. The status of our school depends in large measure upon the accomplish- ment of these things. The following are some comments on the new school by members of the class: Barbara Hudnutt remarked that the building will be “very beautiful.” Virginia Nichols thinks that a new school will be “elegant.” Bobby Roberts says that the new school will be a “great improvement.” Jane Dunn says she has always looked forward to having a new high school in Alexandria and she is “quite proud” to be numbered among the first graduates of George Washington High School.

That is a big order, isn ' t it? Anyway, I’ll try to fill it. We don’t want any crystal gazers: personally, I think they are a lot of bunk. Well, gather round, put on your thinking caps, and start imagining. Gee whiz! this oughtn’t to be hard. I don’t know about you, but I have my future all planned (a lot you care about that!). Nevertheless, it’s gonna’ be a grand one! Now considering that, next year, we are all going to pass (I said you’d have to use your imaginations) , we should be Sophomores. Since you are Sophomores, dear classmates, don’t begin to put your dear little empty heads in the air and snoot everyone. ’Member you have two more years to go. Let’s see, another year has passed and you with it. (I hope I’m not pun- ning.) You are now Juniors. (I never have liked that word; sounds like a two-year old.) “Time flies and we with time,’’ therefore we are Seniors. Yipee! Let’s celebrate. Are you with me? I was told that I was to take you for a trp of ten years (into the future) , but, my slill dear readers, I really am not able to take the whole bunch of you, and I can’t take you one by one {that is against the rules and regulations) . How on this earth I am to do it is beyond an inferior mental machine like mine. Back to the flight — it surely would be a mean trick to leave you in midair. couldn’t do a thing like that, so here we go; hold on tight; this is gonna be a fast trip. College — zip — you have graduated. Business school — zip — you have a job! I hope you all like your futures as much as I do, and I bet you wish they would come true. By Little Miss Muffett.

Under the able leadership of our President, William Riddick, and under the guidance of Misses Hill and Florance much work has been accomplished. The Council is divided up into committees which handle any situations which may arise. There is the honor committee which handles cases involving any dishonesty which may occur; the citizenship committee selects the students eligible for the citizenship award; the scholarship committee chooses outstanding students eligible for the scholarship award for the year, and the ways and means committee handles finances of the council; the committee on courtesy sponsored what we believe was a most successful courtesy campaign. Although the Council has the welfare of the students at heart, it works under the disadvantages of a great prejudice because some of the students do not fully realize the purposes and responsibilities of a student government. Surely students should be proud of the fact that they are considered trustworthy and intelligent enough to cope with problems entrusted to their representatives. We hope that next year the students will come to recognize the real merits of a council and will cooperate to their utmost in helping to make their govern- ment truly a government of, for, and by themselves.

Since then it has been one of the most active clubs of this school. Gradually each year its standards and principles have been promoted so that today we have one of the most successful organiza- tions in the Alexandria High School. The present membership in the club is sixty, a number which surpasses that of all other clubs. During the year we have had several successful and interesting affairs which have enabled us to further our ambitions. One of our activities is the writing of letters to our friends in Spanish-speaking countries, in order to obtain a better understanding of this language and learn something of the customs and habits of those people. This also benefits those with whom we correspond. One of the outstanding reasons for the success of this organization is the cooperation of all those concerned in our club. The motives of the Spanish Club are to promote friendship among the members and to get a better knowledge of the language.

A more enthusiastic and energetic group of shorthand writers is not found in any school. Eor their participation in the Annual Order of Gregg Artist Contest, they have been awarded Honorable Mention, the school has been pre- sented with a suitably engrossed gold-seal certificate, and several students have been awarded gold pins as individual prizes. This contest is participated in annually by over 20,000 students and stenographers from all parts of the globe. The accompanying picture of Gregg Writers has won a place in a photo- graphic album of meritorious O. G. A.

The club is composed entirely of members o Girl Cadet Corps, and is under the leadership of Miss Margaret Yates boasts one of the largest memberships of any club in the high school. The purpose of the organization is to promote good feelings among the “cadettes” and to give instruction in military science and tactics. In March the club presented Cabaret Night, which was one of the out- standing social and financial successes of the year. The money taken in was used to finance the annual trip to Winchester. ‘Page Jorty-tiine COLONEL DEEMS SABRE CLUB Commander DOUGLAS STANTON Vice-Commander WILLIAM KLEYSTEUBER Adjutant WALTER CORNNELL Finance Officer STANLEY KEYES This is the second year of the Colonel Deems Sabre Club.

The French Club was organized in April this year. Mary Lewis was elected president, Jane Dunn, vice-president, and Rachel Shelton, secretary- treasurer. The club is a comparatively new organization, but a play and picnic were planned at an early meeting. The Library Club has a staff of capable officers. Anne Monroe was presi- dent, Joyce Waller, vice-president, and Jane Purvis, secretary-treasurer. The club was organized in October and has presented many books to the library. Candy was sold by some of the members at “Girl Shy.” The Art Club has completed several projects this year. Mary Strobel was president and Virginia Rasbach secretary-treasurer of the organization. Once-a- month-program meetings were held to study the works of great artists. At other meetings free-hand drawing was the objective. A large party was given by the club at Christmas time. The Woodrow Wilson Public Speaking Club is one of the older clubs of the school. It is under the direction of Miss Mary Waller Dickinson, who is ably assisted by the following officers: Robert Gooding, president: Helen Pitts, vice-president; Thomas Moncure, secretary-treasurer ; Joyce Waller, parliamentarian. The object of the club is to promote literary activitie s in the school; namely, public speaking, debating, reading, story writing, and spelling. The local contests for the selection of representatves in the Virginia Athletic- Literary Association are under the direction of this club. Jifty-four FOOTBALL The football team this year was considered the strongest in years, winning eight out of ten games. Prospects looked none too bright at the beginning of the season because of heavy losses from graduation. However, Coach Given received such capable replacements from last year’s “Suicide Squad” that gloom soon turned to sunshine. Eastern defeated us in the first game of the season, 7-6. Then Central fell to the “Maroon and Orange,” 12-0. The second and last reverse of the season came at the hands of Western. The “Twins,” outweighed, went down fighting with a score of 6-0. From then on, one victory followed another — Southern, National Training School, Roosevelt, Washington and Lee, Hopewell, Fredericksburg, and Gonzaga. The Southern game was played at night in Baltimore. This was the first night game to be played by A. H. S. The defeat of Washington and Lee, 12-7, and of Fredericksburg, 20-0, made us Champions of Northern Virginia and holder of the mythical District “B” title. Gonzaga was played as a post-season game, the climax to Home-Coming Week. The “Twins” slid and skidded through a sea of mud and water to win, 19-0. At the annual Football Supper, given by the Pep Club, the following received letters: Co-captains, Luckett and Fritter, Captain-elect for 1935, Shu; Varney, Fones, Ewald, Nugent, Beach, Robinson, Pulman, Stewart, Apperson, Saunders, McCuen, Jefferies, Hammersley, Burroughs, Kirchner, Davis, O’Neil, Worden, and Manager Brewer. BASKET BALL The “Twins” had a fairly good season this year. Several new schools were added to the schedule, among them, Manassas, Occoquan, and Waynesboro, Pennsylvania. Mt. Rainier, National Training School, Roosevelt, Mt. St. Joseph, Nokes- ville, and Lredericksburg were defeated early in the year. Then followed a mixture of defeats and victories. The team played in the Star Tournament at the close of the season, but was defeated by Bethesda-Chevy Chase in perhaps the most hotly contested game of the year, the winning basket being scored in the last few seconds of play. We entered the state finals at Charlottesville but were defeated. This closed the season. The team was composed of Captain McMenamin, Nugent, Wood, Lynch, Ennis, Apperson, B. Burrell, R. Burrell, Jacobson, Smith, Brewer, and Manager Roland. Jifty-six THE BALLAD OF THE BASKETEERS The practice is started with the new and the old, And Miss Bowers is beginning the schedule to unfold. On December 15, the St. Ritas we beat. The score was 3 1 to 3 — a great defeat! The Buddies were the next to go down. With a score of 33 to 9. Fredericksburg, our most famous foe. Lost to us with a score of 14 to twenty-fo’. Herndon was our next victim, 22 to 16, we gained with great good vim. Our winning stroke was broken, I don’t say, “Alas!” With close scores to Mt. Rainier, Herndon, and Manas-sas. But at this bad luck we cried to heaven. And defeated Occoquan, 36 to 11. Our games, oh, my! are not now on a winning streak. From Fredericksburg and Mt. Rainier we took it, not on the chin, but on the cheek. Our A and B teams are both seen in action. When they defeat St. Agnes, A and B, in style of satisfaction. The season does not end as we will : We go down to Lee-Jackson, Occoquan and Nokesville. The players who made this season, as everyone knows. Are the sisters Shapiro, Annie and Rose, With Gorham, Weiner, Caton, and Shu, And Smith, Rose, Mosher and Shaw. “Adew.” ' Jifty-seven TRACK The track team this year is composed mostly of veterans. As this is written, the “Twins” have won both meets in which they have participated. The first, with Episcopal “B,” was taken by an overwhelming score. The second was a quadrangular meet with Washington and Lee, Fredericks- burg and Silver Springs. Again, A. H. S. v ' as on the very large end of the score. On May 1 1 , a team will be sent to Charlottesvill e to compete in the State Contests there. Several other meets are on schedule as this goes to press; it is hoped that the “Twins” will come out on top in these engagements.

At this writing, the “Twins” have been defeated but once and that at the hands of Roosevelt, 12-11. Central succumbed to the wily curves of “Butch” Woods, 6-5, in the first game of the year. Eddie Hammersley, alternate hurler, shut out Eastern in a no-hit, no-run game. National Training School and Mt. Rainier were defeated, and immediately following, Chester, Lee Jackson, and Nokesville were slaughtered with what were seemingly football scores, 16-0, 22-2, 16-0, respectively. This comprises the games played at this time, but there are many left on the schedule. The team; Captain Godfrey, Woods, Hammersley, Armstrong, P. Heflin, Varney, McMenamin, Brewer, Shu, Fones, Nugent, Cowling, Mitchell, J. Heflin, Barnett, Entwisle, and Manager Norford. Jifty-nine COMPANY A COMPANY B T ' age Sixty 00 5 CADETS ON PARADE We formed early in September this year. Temporary officers were named who took over the reins of the cadet corps until permanent officers could be appointed. There were about three platoons of old cadets coming back and two platoons of recruits. We formed two companies, a third to be formed later. We who hoped to become officers were instructed by Lieutenant Liwski in military science and tactics. When the officers were chosen, there were a few dark horses, most promotions occurring, however, as had been expected. The cadets now go on parade. Our first efforts of ma jor importance were in the Dairy Festival Parade at Manassas. We made a good showing here, considering the short time allowed for training and the inexperience of the cadet officers. We next participated in a squad competition in which we lost to our brothers-in-arms, George Mason. The cadet corps planned a tree planting exercise for Arbor Day, but this failed to materialize because of inclement weather which lasted for fifteen days. Eyes, Right! The reviewing stand! Next came our much-looked-forward-to Winchester trip. Here we made a good showing even if it was in the usual Apple Blossom Festival weather — rain. We are now approaching the competitive drill. Our platoon is drilling unceasingly. This year we compete against George Mason and Washington and Lee. The latter are competing with us for the first time in two years. We are placing much hope on winning. The end of the parade draws near. June is now at hand, the time when many of the officers have a feeling creeping over them, a feeling of losing something dear to them. Many officers are leaving the cadet corps, never to lead it in parades or on the drill field again. We, the officers, salute the cadet corps and turn over our commands to the next cadets to fall in line. William Jefferies, Major, Cadet Corps, ' 35. N. B. — As this goes to press, news comes to us that Lieutenant Liwski is leaving immediately to assume official duties in the United States Army. We should like to take this opportunity of expressing to Lieutenant Liwski our appreciation for his splendid work and cooperation here with us and our gratitude for his friendship. In him we found a strong leader, a staunch friend, and an officer who has served our needs and established behind him firm ideals that should make of our boys such men for the future. T age Sixty-one COMPANY E COMPANY F T age Sixty-two 3 } BATTALION. ATTENTION! The fair assemblage of young ladies on the drill field every day at twelve is none other than the Girl Cadet Corps. This organization was started four years ago as one platoon, and now is a battalion, commanded by Major Celeste Gorham. Company A is commanded by Captain Dorothy Apperson, and Company B is commanded by Captain Florence Turner. At the beginning there were about twenty enlisted. Now there arc one hundred and two enlisted — a growth from one platoon to six platoons. Many members of the corps are now busy on the rifle range every evening, preparing for the selection of the team to compete against the George Mason team later this semester. The recruits of February boast a larger number than has ever before enlisted at mid-year. They are eighteen in number and are forming a new platoon for Company B.
