THE GIRLS' DRILL TEAM
A girls! drill team was begun at East in 1940 and through the able cooperation of all
its members, it has now become an organized part of school life,
Early in the term, a group of girls headed by Jean Hewitt, a senior, suggested
having a unit somewhat in accordance with the R. O. T. C. unit in our school.
This idea slowly formed into a resolution and was taken to Mr. Oliver for consider-
ation. Mr. Oliver, and Major Neilson of the R. O. T. C., discussed the possibility of
the idea, and soon the girls were given permission to enroll.
The unit is composed of 137 cadets. There are seven platoons, each headed by a
lieutenant. Each platoon leader is assisted by a second leader and a platoon guide.
The uniforms consist of white skirts, white jackets fastened by red buttons,
and white military caps, with the insignia of East on them, made like those of
R. O. T. C. boys, The initial appearance of the group was made during the Iris
Pageant this year when it paraded for the first time.
The leaders a e as follows:
First Platoon , . LIEUTENANT VIRGINIA ALESSIO
Second Platoon . . LIEUTENANT EVELYN ACREE
Third Platoon, .. LIEUTENANT GENEVIEVE SANDERS
Fourth Platoon . LIEUTENANT DORLENE HORNER
Fifth Platoon. .. -LIEUTENANT JEAN HEWITT
Sixth Platoon . . LIEUTENANT NANCY FELTS
Seventh Platoon . , . , . , . , . , . , . , . , , , . . ,LIEUTENANT GLYNN SPILLERS
The purpose of the unit is to furnish something different for the girls and at
the same time to improve posture, marching, and coordination.
