We sincerely hope ThaT you enioy iT, Tor our success depends on how you, The sTudenT body, accepT our eTTorTs. The EdiTor X ll' X . lf Y, , Ak T I ..- DR. THOMAS W. HOWIE PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE SUPERINTENDENTS MESSAGE 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 your talents. 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 were frail. 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. MARGUERITE S. BENTHALL MRS. MARGUERITE S.

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.

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. Q4 ' dr 5 . F I x l .

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 Strausbaugh.

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 only goal. The last game at West Chester brought the season to a close on a good note. lt ended in a tie score, but it was a well-played game. Jan Millar, as captain, had seniors Eysaldt, Spingler, Warner, and Wells as co-players. lt. gi, ,, g V 'Xxx' . f It L-- JX 'A 4, V, , as 1. ,fs 'Q M:-fiijfb P N' 1-.ff-110 - .

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 varsity team. 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. 'l'- vw ,V -rf f"7 'v 9- 4 X First row: M. Butler, P. Guthrie, B. Tabor, C. Haug, B. Dorst, J.

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. BO 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. S' BASEBALL TEAM First row: J. Kehnast, B. Hall, C. Haug, M.
