LIBRARY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA GIFT OF DIVISION OF EXTENSION THE STUDENTS of FATLS CHURCH HIGH SCHOOL DL 16 is our school, our heritage. As ice come and go through the swiftly passing years, Falls Church High School will remain in our hearts a symbol of the experiences, friendships, and dreams we shared. May it never lapse into the realm of forgotten memories.

A DEDICATION We take great pleasure in dedicating the 1951 JAGUAR to Mr. William H. Barrett, who through the years has given us the benefit of his understanding and guidance in all our endeavors. For some years I have been quite a B.A.O.C. (Big Animal on the Campus) here at ole’ F.C.H.S., but this is the first time I’ve been given the opportunity to greet you in person. And, if I may say so, it certainly has been frustrating! I’ve shared every experience, relationship, happiness and sadness, with each of you and all of you, but could never let you know that I was there. Why, I haven’t missed a sports event, a dance, a play—any activity at Falls Church High since I’ve been here. And I’ve been here since the beginning. Look around. What do we call " our” football team? What are the school newspaper and the year¬ book called? Whose pictures hang in a place of prominence in the upstairs hall? No, I’m not bragging; just want to convince you skeptics, you guys who have never noticed me or thought about me before. It’s kind of insulting to be ignored; good thing I’m not sensitive. The rest of the staff and I have worked hard for almost 12 months on this resume of the past year’s events; and in this volume, the culmination of our efforts, is a part of each one of us, and each one of you. You’ll leave Falls Church High with something more than you came with; everyone is getting something from the years he spends here. We of the staff are gratified at this opportunity to return something. So, here is your 1951 JAGUAR. We hope that you will enjoy it now, and that when you read it again years later it will bring back many, many pleasant mem¬ ories. Page 6 dministration Page 7 DR. WILLIAM S. RUMBOUGH Much of the prestige that Falls Church High School has attained since its establishment is due to the untiring efforts of its principal, Gen. William S. Rumbough. To him each one of us owes a great debt for his undying in¬ terest in the individual. His cooperative endeavors to make all functions and activities of the student body a success have made every student and teacher a fond admirer of this pur¬ poseful leader. OFFICE STAFF It’s nice to have this opportunity to thank the kind and patient people in the office for bearing with us throughout the year. GUIDANCE STAFF Where would we be, during the senior year, espe¬ cially, if it weren’t for our wonderful guidance staff! Many thanks are due to Mrs. Elsie Snodgrass and Mrs. Anne Rullman.

The first football game of the season was played with Coolidge. What a heartbreaker! Remember those square dances at the Canteen? The Junior’s Hoe-Down was a great success. And will you ever forget that memorable Front Royal game? 37-0! Didn’t Sharlee and her court look lovely? The first Torchlight parade. Wonder if Falls Church-ites thought the Civil War had started again? The Fairfax game—need I say more? The dramatics class production of " Great Mo¬ ments” was thoroughly enjoyable. The Junior Class made everyone hold his sides with laughter at the trials and tribulations of " Dear Ruth.” Everyone was very happy at the outcome of the last football game with Charlotte Hall. The Sadie Hawkins Dance was a lot of fun with all those funny-looking corsages and " Li’l Abner” and " Daisie Mae.” The beginning of the basketball season. What fun throwing pennies at the referees! The Football Banquet with all the team dressed " to kill.” Christmas. Remember the Christmas Dance? The gals looked good enough to eat. You’ll never forget New Year’s Eve, followed closely by January and more school. Soon after New Year’s Eve came the Pink Ele¬ phant Club Dance. All those pink elephants floating around certainly were realistic. How about the James Monroe game with a 34-33 loss in the overtime? What a stinker! Eve never seen so much amazing footwear in all my life as I did at the Sock Hop. Page 59 man Dolores Nalls Jim Berry. Sandra Monti Jack Dodson. Sally Eddy . Secretary Sergeant-at-Anns . Treasurer .

But there are other things you’ll want to remember—little incidents that seem far less im¬ portant, but are none the less worthy of your smiles and tears in the years to come. I’m sure you’ll never forget: Mr. Vliet’s six-weeks projects—(those cold, cold Mondays) . . . Coast Guard and trumpet classes with Mr. Bernard . . . " Lay on, Macduff,” in Senior English . . . the " sno” school days . . . visits to " Congress” . . . (Green shorts and white shirts) . . . cutting class with " Henry IV” to celebrate Washington’s birthday . . . Jock Beebe’s haircut . . . sojourns to the office . . . (sessions in Merit Hall) . . . Fritz Wilson’s debut in B.V.D.’s . . . operation " argyle” . . . diving for cover during A- bomb drills . . . heated discussions in civics classes . . . the Seniors not-quite-agrceing on graduation plans. . . . And then, there were the things you said, not seriously, perhaps, but with a devilish twinkle in your eye. I laughed to myself as time and time again I heard one of you repeat these famous last words. . . . " I forgot to read the newspaper Mr. Mishou” . . . " Sure we’ll get back before the bell rings” . . . " You didn’t tell us we had homework, Mr. Vliet” . . . " Hey, let’s go catch a weed” . . . " Aw, who needs to study for College Boards! . . . (Mrs. Seed- lock’s tests are a cinch) . . . " I’ve got study hall next period, let’s go shoot some pool” ... " I just don’t have time to make a career book, Mrs. Miles” . . . " Guess I’ll cut Garhart’s class today” . . . " Miss Shu- grou, what would happen if I mixed this—and this? . . . Let’s take off for the Apollo” . . . I’ll bring them tomorrow for sure, Mrs. Lilly” . . . Gad, here comes Mr. Barrett . . . ( " Please, Mrs. Hurt, I promise not to ask again.”) Page 67 Eighth Grade Snaps Page 68 Janet Johnson.

Jaguars On The Gridiron The 1950 Jaguars, playing one of the toughest schedules in the school’s history, finished up with a four win, five loss, and one tie record. Coach Tom Todd switched from the single wing to the split T and double wing formations. The season began with good defense but a lack of scoring power, although as the season progressed the of¬ fense improved. The year was climaxed by an upset victory over powerful Charlotte Hall. The injury-riddled Jaguars played a good brand of football all year, as is shown by the comparative scores. The Green and White outscored their opponents 143 to 111 points. Outstanding play¬ ers on this year’s team were: Bill Wheeler, named second team All Northern Virginia; Joe Trombo, Skip Tower, Wayne Akre, Fred Landess, and George Pitre in the backfield; and Captain Jack Schauer, Richey Miller, Dave Frye, LaRue Van Meter, Jim Teague, Noel Lynn, and Snookie Fur¬ man in the line.

The Jaguars played their first game in the new stadium against Coolidge High of Washington, D.C. The Jaguars’ defense, led by Jack Schauer, was excel¬ lent but they lacked scoring power. September 22—James Monroe 13, Falls Church 6. Playing in Fredericksburg, the Jaguars again were good on defense but they still lacked offense. The lone Falls Church score came in the second period when Wayne Akre dashed across. September 30—Roosevelt 19, Falls Church 12. With their offense beginning to click, the Jaguars looked good until the injuries took their toll and Roosevelt pulled ahead. Outstanding in this game were Bill Wheeler, Joe Trombo, and Richey Miller, with Wheeler and Trombo each scoring. October 6—Mt. Vernon 20, Falls Church 6. Playing with many injuries, the Jaguars did very well, but the lack of depth showed in the latter part of the game. Fred Landess, who scored, and Jim Teague were the outstanding Jaguars. October 14—Falls Church 37, Front Royal 0. Scoring three quick touchdowns, Wayne Akre led the Jaguars against Front Royal. After this, everybody got into the act as Frank Smallwood, Allan Robinson, and Fred Landess scored. This was the first show of Jaguar power. October 21—Fairfax 6, Falls Church 0. Playing their traditional rival, the Jaguar line was superb, but the backs couldn’t get started. The winning score came when a Fairfax lineman picked up a fumble and ran for a touchdown. Schauer and Miller led the line. October 27—Falls Church 25, Falmouth 0. Led by Bill Wheeler, who scored two touchdowns and passed to Joe Trombo for another the Jaguars were excellent. George Pitre passed to Noel Lynn for the other score. November 4—Falls Church 12, Culpeper 12. Playing in a heavy downpour, the Jaguars com¬ pletely outplayed Culpeper, but they didn’t get the breaks to win the game. Landess and Lynn did the scoring as Schauer and Richey Miller held up the for¬ ward wall. November 10—Falls Church 20, Manassas 14. The Jaguars played excellent ball as they beat a hard fighting Manassas team. Landess paced the winners with two touchdowns and an extra point. Joe Trombo provided the margin of victory with his touchdown. November 18—Falls Church 2 5, Charlotte Hall 20. Led by the excellent running of Joe Trombo, the underdog Jaguars rose up and stopped the powerful Cadets. Trombo scored three touchdowns himself and then passed to Snookie Furman for the final touchdown.

JUNIOR VARSITY FOOTBALL The Falls Church High J.V. football squad concluded its recent season with a record of three wins, four losses, and one tie. The Little Jaguars were comprised of a tough, hard-charging line supported by a group of well- trained, elusive backs. Outstanding among these were John Harper, Deo Hardman, Ted Payne, Dyson Miller, and Dick Alley. The team’s typical " Coach Lyons” spirit, inspired by their extremely capable instructor, Joseph J. Lyons, Jr., will long be remembered. This spirit was well displayed during the hard-fought games with Mount Vernon and Washington-Lee. Next year’s prospective linemen include Bill Salsgiver, Dick Little, Lee Chaney, Duane James, Larry White, Palmer Rutherford and numerous others whom we feel sure Coach Todd will look forward to having on the varsity squad.

Es- kcw, and S. Tower. Jaguars On The Hardwood The 19 50-5 1 basketball season began under the direction of Coach Joe Lyons who was faced with a young and inexperienced team. The starting team consisted of a freshman, a sophomore, a junior, and a senior, with the fifth position alternating between three underclassmen. After a slow start, the team improved enough to be considered a worthy con¬ tender in the spring tournaments. The mid-season arrival of George Richardson was a great relief after the loss of George Pitre and Bob Schmidt due to injuries. Richardson, a senior, imme¬ diately took over one guard position, while another senior, George Bairey, took over the other guard post. The scoring was led by Captain Billy Johnson, who alternated between center, guard, and forward; Con- tee James, another senior and the tallest of the regu¬ lar first stringers, and Allan Robinson, a junior who is rough, fast, and a good man in the pivot. The all- important substitutes were Skip Tower, Phil Kautt, Hank Taylor, and Palmer Rutherford. Although this season didn’t prove too successful, there were many who gained valuable experience, and with some good junior varsity boys coming up, next year should be a different story. Coach Lyons Page 80 First row: Coach Moffatt, J. Berry, B. Gardenhire, J. Fahey, C. Yarbrough, J. Shannon, and D. Frye. Second row: J. Mather, G. Mason, T. Hoy, R. Belknap, D. Alley, N. Bemis, and B.

Although they had only a fair season, there were many good pros¬ pects for next year’s varsity. Outstanding among these were Bill Gardenhire, who had a 12 point average, John Mather, Mike Williamson, Dick Alley, and Nye Bemis.

Jaguars On The Cinders In 1950 The Jaguar thinclads had a good season, especially since it was only the third year for track at Falls Church High. Coach Todd had many boys back from the previous year, which helped considerably. Many of these were Falls Church High record holders. In pole vault and high jump events was Bob Davis; in the broad jump, Johnny Poehler; in the 440-yard dash, Fred Landess; in the low hurdles, Wayne Richey; and in the half-mile and mile, Billy Johnson, who was sidelined early in the season with an ankle injury. These, plus many others, made up a track team to be proud of. The new boys who were a main factor in gaining the Fairfax County ti¬ tle were Tony Bickrest in the high jump; Frank Rothery, Bill Allen, and Charlie Ogdon in the shot and discus; Davis in the low hurdles; Geoige Carrera, Eugene Merkert, and Ruby Robin¬ son in the sprints; Pete McCrary in the half-mile; and Frank Jenkins in the mile. Many of the old Jaguar records were broken and the season was topped off with a hard-won victory in the Fairfax County meet. With many of these boys back for next year we are hop¬ ing for another successful season and our second consecutive county championship. On their way to the trophy. Carrera breaks the tape.

Jaguars On The Diamond In 1950 The Jaguars in 1950 ran hot and cold. They had good pitching and a good infield, but a weak out¬ field. At the plate the Jaguars were somewhat of a flop. The first four batters could usually bring in a run, mainly with Brownie Mayberry at bat. The highlight and surprise of the season was the lopsided win over G.W. High of Alexandria. Mayberry’s one- hitter, and his grand-slam home-run were the leading factors in the 21-0 score. The season ended with 10 wins and 6 losses and a third place in the Metro¬ politan Tournament. The Tournament record was 3 and 2 with a heartbreaking 1-0 loss to Mount Vernon and a close one to W-L. The infield was held together with John Grant at first, Earl Foltz at second, Brownie Mayberry or Pea¬ nuts Sechrist at short, and Mike Giambattista or Buddy Smith at third. In the outfield were Bill Wheeler, Wayne Akre, LeRoy Cloud, and Peanuts Se¬ christ or Ray Gunderson. The pitching, done mainly by Brownie Mayberry, Frank Smallwood, John Grant, Charlie Williams, who was brought up from the J.V. late in the season, proved somewhat of a sensa¬ tion. Behind the plate you could usually find Lee Houtz. The hitting was not the best; the power rested mainly on Brownie Mayberry, and the short hits on Earl Foltz and Wayne Akre.

These active girls established the first J.V. cheerleading squad at Falls Church High School. The two groups practiced together for a month, and then became independent. The Varsity Cheerleaders sponsored bonfires, pep rallies, and the first torch parade at F.C.H.S., which was quite successful. The Page 86 Cheerleaders worked with the Pep Club and other organizations in an effort to increase school spirit, student body attendance at sports events, and more active participation in the cheers. They helped sell cokes at the pep rallies, and assisted with the sale of programs, also. Throughout the year, the Cheer¬ leaders worked very hard for the teams and the stu¬ dents, trying to keep interest and school spirit at a high level. GIRLS’ HOCKEY Under Mrs. Jean Sullivan, the Varsity Hockey Team won four games and lost two in the fourth season of interscholastic hockey at Falls Church High. Double victories were taken at the expense of W-L and BC-C, and both losses were suffered at the hands of a veteran Fairfax team. October 12—Opening game played against Fairfax, here, found both elevens in top form. The contest ended Fairfax 1 - F. C. 0. October 16—An unevenly matched game with BC-C, there, resulted in a 4-0 win, with all goals scored in the first half. October 26—First encounter with W-L, here. A 3-1 victory for Falls Church. October 3 1—Falls Church again met W-L, here, to thoroughly beat them 4-0. November 7—On the Fairfax field Falls Church couldn’t seem to get started, and gave up its second loss, 4-0. November 14—Jaguarcttes ended the 19 50 season with a 3-0 triumph over BC-C, here. November 16—Northern Virginia Field Hockey Play Day was held at W-L with Fairfax, Mt. Vernon, W-L, and Falls Ch urcii participating. Each team played two games, judges observing. Falls Church again downed W-L, 3-1, and once more surrendered to experienced Fairfax, 2-1. A selection committee chose honorary first and second teams. From 22 available positions Falls Church took 9, Fairfax 7, and W-L 6. First team: Gunderson, L.I.; Hockman, C.F.; Rutherford, R.H.; and Smith, R.F. Second team: Cronin, L.W.; Carroll, R.I.; Knight, C.FL; Wilson, L.H.; and Larcombe, L.F.

GIRLS’ BASKETBALL Girls’ Varsity Basketball with Miss Carolyn Morrison as coach played 12 games in the 195 0-5 1 season. December 12—First game with Leesburg there; Jaguarcttes were in control the whole game, winning 32-23. December 19—The team traveled to Quantico and found very little opposition, winning from them 37-20. January 5—BC-C proved to be the better team, the final score reading 49-26. January 10—Jaguarettes had a good practice game with Mt. Vern on, who had little to offer in way of a basketball team. Score: 43-26. January 16—Fairfax and Falls Church in a well-matched contest, the final score, 43-42 for Fairfax. January 22—A game that should have gone to Falls Church was won by G.W. Score: 23-22. January 29—Quantico gave the Jaguarettes a good time and the victory with a resulting tally of 5 0-16. February 1—An old habit by now, Falls Church lost to W-L by one point, 24-23. February 15—In the hardest fought game of the season Fairfax’s " luck” held out and they came up with a 23-19 victory. February 19—at W-L. February 22—At Mt. Vernon. February 26—At BC-C. GIRLS’ SOFTBALL This year Mrs. Bernice Lilly again coached Varsity Softball, and Mrs. Jean Sullivan trained the first Junior Varsity Softball team at Falls Church High School. Fairfax, W.-L., G.W., Mt. Vernon, and several junior high schools were on the schedule. Several members of last year’s team returned: Cronin, Carroll, Hockman, Longanec- ker, Shelton, Gunderson, LeSage, and Haines.

SOFTBALL After a successful season last year, these girls provide a nucleus for 1951 team.

STUDENT COUNCIL Page 94 ; - OFFICERS Fred Landess President Bob McIntire Vice-President Shirley Shelton Secretary Don Glover Treasurer (Uh, uhy nh, Mac! !) The Student Council Association is the represen¬ tative body of the students of Falls Church High School, and is undeniably one of the school’s most important organizations. Its main objective is to promote the general welfare of the student body. Some of the activities of the S.C.A. this year in¬ cluded work on an alternative to the present merit hall system, alleviating the crowded conditions exist¬ ing in the halls, and initiating a workable honor sys¬ tem. Certainly we cannot overlook the S.C.A.’s an¬ nual sponsorship of the Sweetheart Dance, always an occasion for much decorating, excitement, and hap¬ piness. Our own S.C.A. is an active participant in the endeavors of the Fairfax County Student Council Association, of which Bob McIntire is Treasurer. The Falls Church High S.C.A. is a function of the stu¬ dent body in which everyone has a stake, and to which each of us owes his respect and support.

Rumbough HISTORY The High School P.T.A. was organized originally as a part of the city-wide association representing Madison Ele¬ mentary and the High School. The meetings were held each month at Madison School. At the beginning of the 1948-49 School Session, the High School P.T.A. was set up as a separate organization with Mr. W. H. Glover president. During the 1949-5 0 session Mrs. W. H. Glover succeeded her husband as president. During the present session the Asso¬ ciation is headed by Mr. James W. Virden. Under the leadership of these three “Falls Church High School” minded citizens the association has grown in mem¬ bership, enlarged its general program, and has been instru¬ mental in making some outstanding contributions to the school. Each year the P.T.A. has sponsored a carnival as its chief source of income. It contributed $600 toward the building of the new athletic field. It is now assisting in the purchase of instruments for the band. The P.T.A. has given a $100 Scholarship to an outstanding senior each year. It developed and has carried out our health program. It is therefore fitting that the 1 950-5 1 Yearbook Staff pay tribute to our P.T.A. Page 100 HIGHLIGHTS OF P. T. A. ACTIVITIES Top left: Panel Discussion, Mr. Virden, P.T.A. Pres., presiding.

Breedlove Mrs. Beaumont Crochet Mimi Lawrence The Senior Play is always an event which everyone looks forward to with a great deal of pleasure and anticipation. The choice of this year’s Senior Play Committee was " The Great Big Doorstep,” which originally appeared with Dorothy Gish and Louis Calhern in the leading roles. The entire action of the play takes place at the Crochet home in Grass Margin, Louisiana, and is concerned with the family’s fervent desire to acquire a house pretentious enough to do their " great big doorstep” justice. Mrs. Crochet is the real strength around which the whole family revolves, Mr. Crochet, the " Commodore,” is, however, more interested in eating than in working to support his family. In his capacity of ditch-digger, or, as his loyal daughter, Evvie, says, " Drainage Expert” he presents an amazingly well-fed appearance in contrast to his hungry family. Here is not only a novel plot and setting, but new and interesting characters as well. Mrs. Miles, Mrs. Hurt, Mrs. Lenvin, Miss Moffitt, Mrs. Jackson, and Mr. Mishou had quite a time casting the play, since every¬ one who tried out read well. It’s always too bad that there isn’t a part for all those who try out. Rehearsals, the first night at Madison, the Hot Shoppe or Howard Johnson afterwards, all mean a lot of fun for those lucky ones who are given a part. Local Characters. The Commodore and His Family.

Due to the concentrated efforts of Mrs. Harriet Hurt and Mr. Shandy Holland, Bill Brose finally learned his lines and Joe Shannon managed to keep cool during his clinches with Shirley. The " big night” was hectic. Backstage, bedlam reigned supreme. Everyone seemed to be running around searching frantically for nothing in particular, or else putting on make-up for the " umpteenth” time. Lines well-learned were suddenly forgotten, and promptings couldn’t be heard over the laughter of the audience. Picture Karin Younger pumping desperately on an automobile horn which refused to cooperate at the proper moment. But it was all wonderful, and hopeful Juniors are eagerly anticipating a part in the Senior Play in ’52, that is, if they recover in time! Page 103 DRAMATICS CLASS PLAYS Roses to Mrs. Hurt!

Outstanding among its accomplishments was the procurement of uniforms, which in¬ curred a total debt of $1200. At this writing, all but a balance of $187.86 has been paid. Money con¬ tributed by the school and the par¬ ents of band members was aug¬ mented by several paper drives on which the members worked quite hard, and a very successful Band Dance. GLEE CLUB Miss Phyllis Campbell— Director The first period Glee Club be¬ came quite well-known in and around the Washington area this year. They appeared on both Jim Gibbon’s and Jerry Strong’s early morning programs, and were also guests on the " Junior Review” show over Washington’s WNBW. The Falls Church Women’s Club was entertained on several occasions by the Glee Club, as was the P.T.A. At Christmas, the members had a wonderful time singing carols all over Falls Church.

Sponsor Mrs. ( ' row son . Co-Sponsor ' ' Receiving Line” Events of The Year The F.H.A. was very busy in and around school this year. One of its outstanding activities was the sale of hot dogs on Thursdays and Fridays during each of the three lunch periods. This was not only a service to the school, but it provided financial aid for the club as well. During National F.H.A. Week the club presented a mirror to each of the girls’ powder rooms. Another phase of the celebration was the presentation of an honorary membership key to General Rumbough. Climaxing the week’s events was a tea, which the club held for members of the faculty. In the spring another tea, this time a Mother-Daughter Banquet, followed by a fashion show featuring clothing made by members of the club. PURPOSES 1. To promote a growing appreciation of the joys and satisfac¬ tions of homemaking. 2. To emphasize the importance of worthy home membership. 3. To encourage democracy in home and community life. 4. To work for good home and family life for all. 5. To promote international good will. 6. To foster the development of creative leadership in home and community. 7. To provide wholesome individual and group recreation. 8. To further interest in home economics. Page 106 " Selling Hot Dogs” JUNIOR CIVIC LEAGUE Activities The Junior Civic League, under the guidance of Miss Hawkins, endeavors to increase the interest of teen-agers in community affairs. It represents the high school in many city government meetings, en¬ courages youth participation in social and religious activities, and creates projects for the enjoyment of students outside of school. Among the many projects of the J.C.L. this year was the " Crusade for Free¬ dom.” Members helped further this worthy cause by obtaining close to 100% membership at Falls Church High School in the movement toward freedom from Communism in Europe. The J.C.L. also sponsored several dances at the Teen Canteen during the foot¬ ball and basketball seasons in order to provide an op¬ portunity for informal get-togethers after athletic events. In response to a growing interest in square dancing, the J.C.L. hired a professional caller and ar¬ ranged for lessons to be given one night a week at the Canteen for the benefit of all students desiring to learn more about this " new” pastime. In an at¬ tempt to encourage greater participation in church youth groups, J.C.L. members visited various " Young Peoples” organizations to obtain ideas from the more successful ones and to contribute suggestions to other groups for increasing attendance. With the initiation of many other activities and programs, and a larger and more enthusiastic membership, the Junior Civic League has accomplished more this year than ever before.

Membership in the Dance Club affords an op¬ portunity for students to meet one another socially, something which many of the students probably would not have the chance to do elsewhere. The club is divided into three groups: the Eighth Graders meet with Miss Bickers; the " Rhumbaists” and " Tan- goists” with Mr. Moffatt; and the general dancers with Mrs. Jackson and Miss Morrison.

They learn that light balance, timing, and careful planning go into the production of a good picture. With the help of Mr. Cooper, club sponsor, the members have adopted a charter, and aroused in¬ terest in high school photography. The Photography Club bulletin board in the main hall was placed there for the general information of the student body. It displays announcements of contests, and jokes and informative clippings from papers and magazines. The ultimate goal of the group is to obtain a dark¬ room for club, newspaper, and yearbook work. This goal, it is hoped, will be reached in the near future. PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB Page 111 SCIENCE DISCOVERY CLUB The Science Discovery Club is a member of Science Clubs of America. Its objectives are to ex¬ plore the unknown, and to carry on experiments of interest to the members. Field trips are taken to va¬ rious institutions of scientific interest.

I’m getting blisters on my blisters! ! Well, it’s almost over now, and what have we? The staff and I hope that we have a " bang-up” yearbook for one thing. It’s been a lot of work, a lot of worry, and a lot of time spent; but now that we’re so close to " 3 0” I can say honestly that it’s been a lot of fun, too! Anyway, I personally can’t register a gripe! Why, my picture is plastered somewhere on almost every page; my name is mentioned several times, it even appears on the cover! And, if I do say so my¬ self, those wonderful drawings of Sharlee’s on the division pages aren’t bad at all; she didn’t exactly do my profile justice, but still, not bad at all. You know, we’re not only bringing the 1951 yearbook to a close, we’re bringing the school year to a close as well. It certainly seems as if it all went fast, doesn’t it, especially for the Seniors? Only through the yearbook will the Seniors be able to re¬ capture their last year in high school. Well, good luck and lots of happiness to you all, and until next year, LOOK FOR ME; I’LL BE WAITING FOR YOU! COME IN AND CALL FOR. . . . Aw, nuts! ! I’m getting writer’s cramp.

Remember? One fateful day I saw you walk hesitantly up " my” front walk; you were the first eighth-grade class at Falls Church High. From the beginning everything seemed to hap¬ pen to you, but you certainly managed to make the best of it and have a good time! Those five minute recesses between classes were a good idea. During that first year you were introduced to a football team, the Cheerleaders, bonfires, and Phys. Ed., among other things. (You studied " As You Like It” in Mrs. Hill’s class.) The football season came and went triumphantly; you beat Fairfax, and walked off with the County Class B Championship! Remember that game? Some of the boys carried Coach Wroniewiez, Bill Reeves, and Mike Bruin off the field on their shoulders. (By this time you were beginning to rec¬ ognize some of the Seniors. Remember Beth Henry, Betty Ann Meyer, Bob Thompson, Bill Reeves, and Mike Bruin?) . . . Then, quite suddenly, you were Freshmen. There were picnic tables in the multi-purpose room! Mr. Mackall Bruin had resigned as principal and was re¬ placed by Mr. Howard Richardson. Remember Alge¬ bra I with Mrs. Cauffman? Beginning to " blossom out,” you were seized with party fever. (Always one and, sometimes, two parties each weekend kept you in a constant state of anticipation.) The car craze was becoming an epidemic, and, although only one or two fellas could get the car, most of you usually managed to get a ride. (I remember seeing Fred’s ’37 iscin Chevy with 12 in the back seat and 4 in the front!) Glen Echo was popular . . . any place so long as you could ride there! You really worked on a dance that year and came up with the Carnival Dance, complete with penny-pitching, fortune-telling, and all kinds of booths. Everyone was very proud of Lilia when she was elected Maid of Honor at the Sweetheart Dance. You topped off the year with a class hayride to Mayo Beach, and there I’ll leave you in privacy. . . . Your Sophomore year. By this time the Hot Shoppe had come into its own. What an institution! (I like to get curb service, too.) Some of you had General Rumbough for plane geometry. You had fun in his class, but learned a lot, too. (Remember the day it snowed and everyone left school for all-day parties? Mrs. Hanson’s homeroom really got the once-over the next morning.) You were full of originality. Remember the Sock Hop, which became an institution; and the Snowball—flower girls, a minstrel show, et al? Speaking of shows, many of you made your theatrical debuts via the one-act plays. When part of the props fell on Jack Hanson and Bob Lundien, very few of the spectators knew that it wasn’t rehearsed that way. " Make Room For Rod¬ ney” won first place (Mclntire came through at the last minute). Mr. Marshall directed a real, old-time minstrel show which was presented at Madison. Kids from all over the school participated, and the strains of " Honey Boy” rang in everyone’s ears. You had an¬ other hay-ride, this time choosing Beverly Beach as the place to get the sun, which obligingly popped in and out all day. And with that. . . - emutt,5C(,n You popped into your Junior year. The Prom to anticipate! General Runibough was principal now, and proved to be a very capable administrator. You gave bake-sales and more bake-sales. As a matter of fact, you established that noble institution, didn’t you? So many things happened it’s impossible to re¬ call them all. What a fun-crammed year! How about that game with Falmouth at Fairfax when there was a deluge? I think the Cheerleaders were really good sports. The spirited car parade and the good game (you won) made your clash with Fairfax a great event. In the Junior Play, Snooky Furman proved that " Love Is Too Much Trouble” by climb¬ ing into an evening gown that refused to be zipped up. You sponsored lots of dances to raise Prom money, among them the Homecoming Dance, and the Blue Note Cafe, which was a big hit. Some of you were lucky enough to be accepted for member¬ ship in the National Honor Society or Quill and Scroll. Margaret Donaldson generously asked the class to spend a day at Danes on the Bay, where every¬ one had a wonderful time. At last, THE PROM. All your excitement and anticipation was justified when you walked into the National Airport Terrace Room. The place looked wonderful; the band was very good; the girls were, each one, radiant, smiling and iovely; the boys—well, they looked different to say the least. From Levis and T-shirts to white din¬ ner jackets and carnations! ! The next day of that perfect weekend was spent at the beach. Everyone must have been tired, but you were all certainly happy! ! Graduation day only made you realize all the more how close you were to being. . . . Seniors! Now the football stars were in your own class: Miller, Trombo, Lynn, Wheeler, Landess, and the others. Now the " Jaguar” and the " Jaguar Journal” were primarily your responsibility. There were games; measuring for caps and gowns; dances to sponsor; horribly hard subjects to study; Senior cards to exchange and announcements to send; a play to choose, the try-outs, the first night at Madison; A.C.E. Tests; College Boards for some of you, and the possibility of the Seniors " tripping” to New °rk; final graduation plans, etc., etc. Kitty was a charming " Sweetheart,” wasn’t she? Those Senior Piivilege Cards came in pretty handy once in awhile (oftenet if you were handy with ink eradicator or eraset). The Prom! Graduation! New realms of discovery, excitement, happiness just around the cor¬ ner. The tearful " good-byes”; the friendly " hellos” to look forward to. Your life at high school has meant a gteat deal to you. You entered these portals as children; you’re leaving as young adults. Wherever you go, whatever you become, your high school years, sometimes sad, mostly happy, always wonderful will continue to play an important part in your individual development . . . Please don’t ever forget them, for I w ill never forget you. —THE JAGUAR THE LIBRARY OF VIRGINIA ' J ' S ' t
