DR. THOMAS W. HOWIE
Today more than ever, the world needs men and women
of stature and convictions. The complexities of modern every-
day living demand all of our Talents developed to their
fullest extent. ln the words of Thomas Wolfe, "lf a man has
a talent and cannot use it he has failed. lf he has a talent
and uses only half of it, he has partially failed. lf he has a
talent and learns somehow to use the whole of it, he
has gloriously succeeded, and won a satisfaction and a
triumph few men ever know."
Here in your school life we have endeavored to teach you
and help you to develop your abilities to the fullest possible
degree. The measure to which you reach success will never
be fully known until The tests of time and use have been
met. We hope you have learned to use the maximum of
THOMAS W. HOWIE
Superintendent of Schools
ln today's world the demand for ease and security is so
great that we are in danger of losing our spirit of daring
and the vision of high accomplishment. lf this happens we
are lost, for America was built on courageous faith in God
and on man's ability to greatly dare and nobly live.
Therefore, l challenge the class of T955 to recapture this
spirit of daring-daring that will lead you to high
high adventure and noble endeavor!
First, I dare you to develop a strong body! Many have
been unable to fulfill ambitions simply because their bodies
Secondly, I dare you to develop a creative mind! We so
saturate our minds with cheap stories and second-rate
movies, that we find little time for biographies
thinkers and leaders, stories of achievement, great sym-
phonies and oratorios.
Thirdly, I dare you to develop an unselfish personality!
No time in our national history have complexes been more
a national habit. lt is Time to concentrate on qualities that
make up a normal, happy personality. We must begin by
getting the center of our attention and interest away from
ourselves. Jesus said, "Find your life by losing it in service
for others." Develop a genuine interest in other people.
Accept these dares and life will be more worthwhile and
youth will accomplish the great things for our day as they
have done through the centuries.

THE SENIOR PLAY
The class of 1955 proudly presented "Pride and Preiudice" as their Senior play
It was an adaptation of Jane Austin's novel of the same name, centered around
a middle class English family, the Bennets. The cast was as follows:
Mr. Bennet ,,,,
Catherine ,. ..
Mr. Collins ssoso
Mr. Bingley oA,,,
Mr. Darcy ,e,,,.
Lady Lucas , ..
Charlotte L.,.,,,u, ,7L,,7
Mr. Wickham .
Hill Lc,c,,,,L,,s ,,,,
Mrs. Bennet L,L,
, c,,,,,,,,,, Stuart Staley
. ...Julian Plaisted
Although the director, Mr. Perkins, was new to our school, he took on the long
and difficult iob of making the play a success. The cast owed a lot to him to
Hillary Cherrix, the student director, and to Mrs. Wright and all the members of
the stage crew.

THE STUDENT CCUNCIL
The Student Council of T954-55 began its active program by re-open-
ing the Canteen and sponsoring dancing at noon-time in the recreation
room. ln the early fall, they entertained the Philadelphia Suburban Stu-
dent Council Association, an organization of forty-one schools. Judging
from the many compliments, it was very successful.
ln the annual Christmas Parade, they entered our Japanese exchange
student, providing a decorated float upon which Edward Fujii rode.
The student body and faculty generously contributed to the Christmas
baskets which the council packed and distributed to the needy families
before Christmas. They held the annual Community Fund Drive to aid
the agencies that are helped by national compaigns.
As this was being written, along with the many other duties of the
council, the members are planning a Blue and Gold Day, Student Day,
and the May Festival.
With the wonderful cooperation of the student body, the council
is succeeding in its attempts to build a better school.

A new and very active organization this year is the Exchange Club Thirty stu
dents from our student body were selected to participate in this program by a
committee of faculty and students.
The purpose of the Exchange Club is to promote a better understanding of
people in different communities in our country.
During the year the students with the cooperation of the Parents-Teachers As-
sociation have conducted various campaigns to raise the needed funds to pay
for the group s program.
One of the preliminary projects was the ri ,lking of a portfolio of pictures and
printed material depicting our community. This portfolio was sent to Newton
and a similar project was sent to us introducing their community.
ln the early spring, the students are looking forward to a trip to Massachusetts
where they will be guests of the Newton High School. Toward the end of the
year they will in turn play host to our Newton friends.

This years football team showed great spirit and sportsmanship Coaches
Hellman and Magill were quite pleased when seventy six enthusiastic candidates
reported for the early practices. For many of them this was their first year of
playing, but in spite of inexperience and the warm weather they continued the
strenuous workouts that brought results in the first game.
The season opened with a win over Elkton, and although no more victories
came our way, the games were hard-fought and exciting. Enthusiasm and support
of the student body remained high. It is hoped that the experience gained by
the underclassmen on the team will make next year's season a winning one.
Seniors on this year's team were Bill Evans, Jim Gaines, Jim Golden, Bob Hild,
Jack Holloway, Fred Kellner, Richard Britton, Dick North, Frank Sisk, and Jay

ff WDW VARSITY HOCKEY TEAM
With a strong defense backing up a fast forward line, the girls on the hockey
team played the best and enjoyed every minute of this year's season.
The first game, played in 85 degrees heat was a heart breaker. They lost I to O.
Marge Brozozowski played a good game as goalie, keeping Claymont from scor-
ing more than once. Middletown defeated them 2 to l, but they had a high scor-
ing game against Conrad and came out on top. With goals by Judy Warner,
Mary Jane Thornton and two by Jan Millar, they won by a score of A to 3.
At the away game with Mt. Pleasant, the score was A to l with Mt. Pleasant
victorious. Jan Millar made our one goal. The Newark game was a scoreless tie.
The William Penn game was the exact opposite of the first one played. It was
played on a very wet field in near freezing weather. They were really glad when
the game came to an end although they lost 3 to l. Carol Vandergrift made the
The last game at West Chester brought the season to a close on a good note.

JUNIOR VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM
This year, A.I.'s varsity basketball team provided exciting games for its
spectators. Without a doubt, win or lose, the team has been fighting together.
As of the middle of February, Jay Strausbaugh, captain of the team, admitted only
five wins against seven losses. However, he hoped that the second half of the
season would prove a more victorious one.
This has been the last season for six seniors, Jay Strausbaugh, Jack Holloway,
Bud Britton, Richard North, Jim Gaines and Fred Kellner. Mr. Hoopes coached the
Mr. Brunn, coach of Junior Varsity basketball, had a fairly successful season,
considering the inexperience of his team. By the end of the season, they
showed great improvement, and should make up a good varsity next season.

GIRLS' BASKETBALL TEAM
The girls' basketball squad with co-captains Judy Warner and Pearl Brown and
the able coaching of Mrs. Doud, had a fairly successful season in l955. The
games that were lost were hard-fought ones, lost only by a small margin.
Seniors Janet Millar, Mary Ann Nagy, Mary Butler, Judy Warner, and Pearl
Brown represented their class on the varsity team. Managers as well as team
members were always on hand to give the encouraging word, The girls started
the season with the Mount Pleasant game, losing 47 to 49, then Friends AO-116.
The two following games were victories over Claymont, 27 to 22 and Conrad,
45 to 34. Two more losses completed the p'cture up to the time the Alexis goes
to press, but the team is confident of finishing the season with a winning streak.
The two squads pictured here are made up of
members of the 1954 baseball and softball teams
who were eligible for the T955 teams. Their
experience and enthusiasm made them a valuable
nucleus for the 1955 squads, under the skilled
coaching of Mr. Maglll and Mrs. Doud.
