Falls Church High School Falls Church, Virginia Contents Curriculum 10 Organizations 34 Sports 84 Events 116 Individuals 138 Advertisements 246 2 1970 And we are set to burst forth out of the Chrysalis Before the pupa emerges into light there must be metamorphosis— it must evolve to be transformed into maturity. More vital than ever before is this readiness for adulthood in the Graduate coming forth in 1970. The events of this past year are thrusting him into a cataclysmic world— that demands greater insight—new priorities: There is an urgent need to see each other as individuals— not as components of any particular group; There is a call for meaningful person-to-person communication as a bridge to understanding; There needs to be recognition for those whose glow shines forth only from that proverbial bushel. Here the Graduate of 1970 stands— poised in his emergent state— at the threshold of the future. What shaped— what formed this individual come of age? 3 : Y The sapling planted at the high school needs not the shearing used to create the hedge ' s uniformity. It must have light and room for a longer, outward-spreading reach. Intrinsic is communion of warmth—gentle support, concern for its yet tender state. As it grows, a young tree need not become puritanically sedate— it can continue to twinkle in the sun— to sway to the piper breeze— but its lifeflow should be aimed toward creating the resilience and strength indispensible to full growth— it cannot perpetually dance in the wind like the wobbly stem of immaturity. The sapling is in urgent need of nourishment. It is prey to overwatering, drought or lack of vital chemicals in the soil. To reach the healthy vigor of maturity, it must not only have access to essentia! food, but must be stimulated to absorb and make fullest use of such ingredients. For growth, the conditions were the same— for the tree at the school— for the Class of 1970. 1 £ £ r it i i i 1 Ij m I MsT 1, q 6 With the anniversary of its 25th year Falls Church is no longer the small, locally-oriented high school of yesteryear. From beyond the immediate domain of the school grounds, the ecosystem of the community draws in from variant backgrounds, students by the busload. This action of " being bound together through energy and inter-relationships " works to bring about gradual transformation. Within this year of change- through jobs and service to community, many students extended their reach to grasp at the environment outside their protective sphere. In this dramatic turn to 1970- while not creating such a stir as Virginia swearing in the first Republican Governor in a century— FCHS sent forth many able student represen¬ tatives to delve into practices of leadership. 7 8 RAVAGED This dawn of a new decade saw man wing forth from the cocoon of earth and set foot on the moon— but overshadowing the triumph of frail creatures embracing the heavens— was the awakening to how ravaged and polluted our tarnished earth chrysalis had become. Students became involved and aware of the world outside. Emblematic of a reach beyond its portals, FCHS flew the flags of our school, state, nation and New Zealand, the " official " foreign student ' s land. In this fateful year- strident voices raised both pro and con the war in Vietnam— but some students lit a candle in the dark and marched quietly to show in some small way they deeply cared. As FCHS takes on the aura of a new quarter century, the Graduates of ' 70 take one last backward look . . . s CURRICULUM An access to essential " food " — ingredients for growth . . . A flow outward as well as in- new teachers—new studies aimed at taking students out from the boundaries of the classroom physically as well as figuratively . . . The work of imagination and initiative to broaden an outlook . . . Relaxation of once rigid, all-encompassing subject boundaries to allow choice of theme emphasis on special interest, tailored to the student ' s appetite . . . A stimulation to absorb and make fullest use of nourishment . . . Pertinent programs as preparation for reality beyond the schoolroom in humanities . . sciences . . . arts . . . vocations . . . More than a " passport to college or an admission card to the world of work " — A challenge for facing tomorrow: for those directly entering their life ' s work, for others matriculating to independent learning. 11 12 A required subject for Seniors, the Government course features an in-depth study of the democratic state. Humanities " Nitty-gritty” of Text Proves Good Point of Departure Haunting lyrics of a Joan Baez record . . . the heavy sounds of " E n-a-gadda-da- vidda " . . . the wail of jazz-blues band . . . no, not sounds from the Music Department. It was Sophomore, Junior, and Senior thematic English classes studying The Ballad, Rock Poetry and the Age of Jazz. This innovation in the department allowed the student to select topics according to his interests. Thematic electees were presented with a variety of enticing choices: The Art of Filming, Contemporary Man, Growing Up in Literature and Black America. Each nine week course employed novels, movies, record¬ ings and debates to analyze the theme topic. For accelerated students, there was the Junior ' s American Civilization course and the Senior Humanities Seminar. These were integrated courses combining history, govern¬ ment, philosophy and the arts with English literature and composition. Freshmen were instructed by the ' Tra¬ ditional " method and looked forward to the time when they, too, could elect their courses. Jim McCann, Linda Blundell, Janice Cooper and Dennis Brown find dramatic enactment helps project meaning. 13 An " on-the-spot " recording session of the US Army Band is used as an instrument identification assignment by Mr. Lunsford. Humanities Growth Stimulated by Contact With Outer Environs Students, whether knowledge-seeking Freshmen or arguing Seniors, gained insight into man and his environment-that puzzling, ever-changing, yet always interesting study. The topography of Timbuctoo . . . , the economics of Ethiopia . . . , the wild pleasures of the Carribean . . . ; nothing was held back from the curious Freshmen in World Ge- ography. The more sedate Sophomores studied ancient civilizations, industrial revolutions, and international relations. Juniors, aided by outside reading assign¬ ments, reviewed the institution and develop¬ ment of the United States, while their more advanced peers surveyed the changing con¬ cepts and ideas of the American people in the newly-conceived American Civ. course. Senior government classes battled verbally the theories of national, state, and local government. Democracy took on a new mean¬ ing as they organized and amended their own constitution. Simulated government games, lessons of the Great Books and controversial discussions challenged Seniors in Humanities. The gardens of a monastery provide fertile ground for spreading roots in the study of Man and his place in Nature’s framework. 14 Humanities instructors find relish in observing the learning process . . . . . . through the gaiety of the Hora as well as through rigors of logic and philosophy. Delving further into the study of Man and Religion, students visit places of worship in Wahington, D.C. 15 A unique historical mural in Madame Sulpice ' s room sets the mood for the study of French culture. Language skills of students are advanced by contact with foreign visitors. Two servings of foreign culture . . . 16 Dante Ciolfi gets at the roots of the Romance Languages. Humanities Education Spiced With Foreign Flavor Drills, outside reading, language labs and translations were only a few of the methods employed by Foreign Language instructors to introduce students to a second language. Dialogues and tape recordings were utilized by the first year students, while scholars on the second and third levels were exposed to short novels, sentence structure and the fine art of conjugating. The more advanced lang¬ uage classes refined their linguistic skills with the use of outside reading and classroom con¬ versations. Regardless of the level, all of the language students were exposed to the culture of their chosen country. Teachers, realizing the impor¬ tance of creating the atmosphere and " feel " of the regions, utilized travel posters, native music and art, color slides and even native dishes to familiarize students with the culture of their chosen language group. The result of their labors was a student who could not only read, write and speak a second tongue, but who could also understand and relate to yet another part of humanity. 17 While lab partner Richard Jacobson double-checks the experimental procedure, beginning biologist John Rukenbrod prepares bacteria cultures. 18 Rick Shine and Tom Monday measure accurately and watch intently for a chemical reaction. Sciences Scientists Explore With Text 6 Test Tube Ecological systems, valences, cosmic rings . . . sound familiar? They were all a part of the many courses offered in the Science Department. While the Earth Science classes became familiar with the parts of a glacier, the Biology students eagerly prepared for the dissection of their first frog. Lab exercises in the BSCS Biology courses enabled them to recognize the characteristics of a host of living organisms. For the serious scientists, chemistry offered a chance to become familiar with laboratory procedures and in-depth experi¬ mentation. Physics provided yet another year of instruction for the science-minded. Several new courses were introduced, with the expansion of facilities. Chemistry II and Biology II were offered to Seniors with previous background in the subjects. Both classes were informal and geared toward indi¬ vidual experiments. With the addition of a planetarium to school facilities, a new course in Astronomy was also added to the science curriculum. Test tubes are sterilized by Brenda Black to insure correct results. 19 Jennifer Cooney has a hair-raising experience at the Atomic Age assembly. Sciences Calculations Figure in Science Fields A lesson in basic math: 12 proficient teachers—8 different courses—a multitude of aspiring students—the Math Department. Mul¬ tiply the answer by 2 semesters of study and homework, throw in 100 pounds of pencil sharpenings, erasers and chalk dust and you ' ve got the Math Department at work. The formula was simple. The student started at his level of ability, whether it was General Math or Geometry. Courses in Alge¬ bra, Trig, Functions and Calculus could then be elected in combinations, according to his interests and needs. Such a flexible program divided the struggling students from the serious mathematicians and multiplied every¬ one ' s chances for success. Analytical Geometry was an addition to the department ' s challenging curriculum. Coupled with Trigonometry, it offered stu¬ dents an advanced course that bridged the gap between high school and college math. The department issued a challenge, but it prepared the curious student for his role in the complex and technical future. tabulation of precise data and concise reporting are vital for young chemist Bonnie Beall. 20 A math class cudgels their brains over proofs for geometry. 1 Progressive filing is one of the methods utilized by business students like Ruth Agnew. Nancy Swift perfects her shorthand by constant practice. Mentally computing the correct margins Sheila Lee adjusts her paper to begin typing. Business and Vocations Students Prepare to Earn While They Learn Clattering typewriters, ringing phones, the steady hum of a dictator ' s voice . . . sounds that greet you in the Business and Vocational hall, also known as the " Wall Street " of Falls Church. Here, the future secretaries and junior executives received their training for the not-too-distant jobs in an office. For the Distributive Educational and Vocational Office Training students, the job had already come, and improving skills was the aim. To keep up with the increasing demand for skilled office workers, the department made changes in the curriculum offerings. A Steno Block class was offered for the first time, combining the teaching of typing and short¬ hand for a more realistic office situation. Junior secretaries perfected both of their skills and increased their chances of getting the " ideal " job. For students interested in only a general mastering of the keyboard, Typing I and Personal Typing were offered. Half-day programs combined with courses in DE and VOT were scheduled for those already holding jobs in related fields. Mary Groger is taking dictation via recorder. 23 Robert Weber brushes on watercolors for a render¬ ing to join the gay poster display. Caught in a creative mood Robert Sharp ponders next step in the design of his cellophane sculpture. Fine Arts Various Techniques in Art Explored Photography, sculpture, watercoiors and oil paints, stained glass windows ... no media was left unexplored by the Art Department. While first year art students learned the im¬ portance of lines and color, the more ad¬ vanced students tried their hand at new tech¬ niques in original compositions and creations. Senior Art students were given a free reign to experiment with the different media. The development of talent and creativity was the common denominator of all the art classes. Established to display the talent of these young artists, the annual Art Show u ncovered many a masterpiece. Students were given a chance to view the numerous exhibits during their study halls. The department lent it ' s talent to various organizations for publicity and decorations. Beautifully screened prints advertised the coming of a drama production and many a decoration for the dances was produced in the art rooms. In this way the Art Department proved it ' s versatility in practical and creative endeavors. A glimpse at the art studio reveals the variety of media that attract the student artist. 25 The woodwind section backed by the brass sounds the first notes in practice session. Music Cadence Sounds on Field and Stage Ever wandered through the back of the school and been greeted by a fanfare of brass, or the melodious strains of an all-girl choir? If you have, then your ' re familiar with the Music Department, home of the band, Madri¬ gals, Girl ' s Choir and the Men ' s Glee Club. Directed by Mr. Jim Lunsford, the band perfected their playing skills and continued to delight football fans with their halftime shows. When winter weather drove them indoors, they turned to concert performances to entertain the students. Perfection in practices, section rehearsals and drills all contributed to gold-medal performances. Mr. Holloway had his hands full with a variety of singing groups. A long-standing tradition, the Madrigals mastered their music and spread good will with several assemblies and guest appearances. The voices of the Girl ' s Choir and the A Capella Choir could often be heard resounding through the music wing as they practiced popular and seasonal songs. The Men ' s Glee Club quickly estab¬ lished a reputation with their performances. A perfect performance often calls for a close con¬ sultation with the director. 26 Marching band performers pace the length of the field preparatory to the football season. Decked out in full dress, the band waits for the signal to begin their half-time performance. 27 Fitting the pattern is the first step toward the com¬ pletion of a dream outfit. Home Economics Girls Learn Arts of Couture, Cuisine Baked Alaska for breakfast? . . . Twelve varieties of vegetables for lunch? No, it wasn ' t an eccentricity on the part of the cafeteria staff. The Home Economics classes were cooking. Experimenting on fellow classmates and sampling a variety of prepared foods composed part of the curriculum for the girls, while the Food Service classes spent all their time mastering the culinary arts. Sewing was also introduced to all the classes, as the girls struggled with the intricacies of a button hole and endeavored to create a perfect fit. Before Christmas time, the department added to the seasonal spirit by teaching the girls to make their own decorations and festive wrappings. in keeping with the department ' s goal of producing a well-rounded homemaker, a Consumer Economics course was added. Here the mysteries of financing and budgeting were unraveled, the result being an informed person who could better deal with the complexities of buying and investing. The techniques of hand, as well as machine, stitchery are important knowledge for a seamstress. Oebby Lucas sews on facings — a delicate job! 28 Linda Reingruber learns about nutrition by plan¬ ning a well-balanced meal. More cooks learn techniques of doughnut making through assembly line. 29 Industrial Arts Bill Miller investigates an undercover story. For those students with an interest in competing in the industrial world and for those mechanically inclined, the Industrial Arts Department offered the courses to help develop their abilities. The purpose of the Industrial Arts Department was to prepare the student for more effective living in the present day technological society, and to develop in the student an understanding of industry ' s auto¬ mation, financial structure, labor-management relations, occupations, materials, processes, productivity, and tools and machines. Stu¬ dents learned to use industry ' s technical terminology, techniques, and tools. Courses offered this past year included Industrial Arts I, II, III, and IV, Basic Technical Drawing, Architectural Drawing, and Engineering Drawing, Maintenance and Repair I and II, Electronics I, II, and III, and Industrial Cooperative Training I and II. For the first time, Basic Technical Drawing was offered to the 9th grade students as well as upperclassmen. Wendell Round lifts a copy that is hot off the press.

While it might have caused a minor stir last year, it was just another part of the curriculum for the lucky students in the Physical Education program this year. Co-ed square dancing (would you believe the Texas Star and Virginia Reel?) and mixed volleybail games took place on alternate Thursdays while the Junior and Senior classes bowled together twice a week. This change in the P.E. Department was eagerly welcomed by everyone involved. When the girls weren ' t around, accelerated programs of football, soccer, wrestling, tennis, baseball—to name a few—kept the boys in top shape. For some, the fierce contests provided a chance to let out their frustrations; for others, it meant a challenging opportunity to conquer the sport. It was back to the old balance beam for the girls on " non-co-ed " days. Touch football, tennis, gymnastics, and softball were the ladies ' sports. Not as concerned with devel¬ oping their strength, these sports developed grace and agility in the weaker sex.

Organizations 1970 SCA - New Look, New Ideas Freshmen Orientation, the student handbook, morning announcements: the SCA assisted students in learning about the school. Films, guest lecturers, performing groups: the SCA planned assemblies for the students ' entertainment and education. Open meetings, surveys, a suggestion box, elections: the SCA gave students a chance to voice their opinions. Dress codes, smoking lounges, dissemination of current literature: the SCA sparked controversy among the student body. Appointed chairmen, committee volunteers, class and club officers: the SCA encouraged students to develop their leadership and serve. Traffic Safety, Partners of Alliance, Christmas Food Drive: the SCA organized committees to do service for the community. Activity forms, approved posters, daily announcement memos: the SCA helped clubs to plan projects. Magazine Drive, a sock hop, the Sweetheart Dance, chaotic car rallies: the SCA sponsored projects to fatten their treasury. A Trio gets a big hand at an SCA assembly.

To aid the war on hunger, the SCA sponsors a collection of canned food at Christmas time. Organizations Dress Code Becomes Big Issue for SCA In an effort to “put the student back in student government " the Student Co- -operative Association led by President Mike Dunkley planned, organized and carried out a variety of projects aimed at getting the students involved. Ably assisted by Vice Presidents John Anderson and Mitchell Wright, the student leaders held meetings, prodded committee chairmen and sent out surveys to accomplish their goals. Anyone who ever passed the SCA room could not doubt the industry of the SCA cabinet members. Whether debating an ammendment to the Constitution or counting the results of an election, they applied themselves to the task at hand with enthusiasm. Mr. Bruce Campbell, SCA spon¬ sor, was always ready to assist and advise with each undertaking. The planning of the celebration for the school ' s twenty-fifth anniversary occupied much of the Student Government ' s time. The week of activities was carried out by the class and club leaders. 39 Officers of the National Junior Honor Society take part in the traditional candle light ceremony. Organizations Societies Recognize Worthy Scholars Scholarship . . . leadership . . . service . . . character: traits strived for by all students. Always seeking the individuals who exhibit such qualities, the National Honor Society " tapped” prospective members at the fall and spring inductions. At the solemn candle ceremony, the recognized students were reminded of their role in the future and their tasks for the present. Projects were as wide-ranging as the members ' interests, including tutoring fellow classmates and holding a biking picnic along the C 0 Canal. The honor of wearing a gold tassel at graduation was the final tribute. Members of the National Junior Honor Society subscribed to old saying " All work and no play ... " with several fun activities such as a bowling party for its members. While providing recreation was one of the goals, they didn ' t ignore their more serious duties. Weeks were spent in planning the annual induction, an inspiring ceremony for newly-pledged members. Encouragement for continued academic effort was offered. Members of the National Honor Society spiral to new heights. 40 NHS Sponsor Mrs. Romanus enjoys the view from the spiral Staircase at the C O Canal picnic spot.

Selected for their ability to quickly and correctly answer questions covering all fields of learning, the six members competed against each other, and a final team of three members was formed with the remaining three serving as alternates. The team practiced diligently under the supervision of Mrs. Hamilton, and made a worthy showing in their television competition. Eloquent speeches could often be heard coming from room 204 on Thursday after¬ noons as the Debate Club constantly prac¬ ticed their debating skills. Guided by Mr. Fletcher, the team developed the fine art of public speaking and debate. Expounding on the topic " Resolve: that Congress should unilateral military intervention in foreign countries " , the team traveled to area schools and engaged in spirited competition. With each confrontation they became more adept. Jack Stemple takes refuge behind spate of words while Tom Blake seeks rebuttal in his little black box. David Stevens and Doug Walker plan debate strategy. 42 Our brainy threesome, Jeff Daiak, Anne Nolan and Andy Heyman get the lucky number. 43 The soothing French melodies of a violinist are an added pleasure when dining at Napoleon ' s. Thoroughly enjoying the Christmas fes¬ tivities, Mrs. Sulpice slices the traditional " Bouche de Noel. " Apres diner the group eagerly awaits delectable pastries that Miss Carozza proffers. 44 Individual members fulfill hunger for more cultural involvement with languages — and in turn receive recognition for their extra effort. A photo from a Spanish text pictures El Cordobes, the famous bullfighter for whom the Spanish Honor Society is named. Constructing a gay pinata is the Spanish Honor Society ' s Christmas project. Organizations Students Practice Customs to Assim¬ ilate Foreign Cultures Familiarity with Spanish culture abroad and in South America — but especially facility in speaking the language were the prime aims of the Spanish Honor Society. Individuals attended such events as guitar concerts and a conference at the Pan American Union in D.C. Of great interest to many, was a program featuring a speaker illuminating the many varied careers possible in languages. At the annual Christmas party there was poetry read and carols sung in Spanish to the accompaniment of guitars. As a service project, a pinata was constructed by some members to lighten a day for shut-ins. The French Chef loves to cook and it appears the French Honor Society loves to dine on gourmet delectables at such authentic restaurants as Chez Napoleon. It was there they ate those delicious pastries of the same name and were serenaded by a congenial violinist. The well-attended Christmas Tea, sponsored each year by the Society, provided still more savory tidbits, including the traditional rum cake, " Bouche de Noel.

The German Club attempted to put all of this into one room at FCHS. Besides practicing the country ' s native language and discussing cultural aspects of the German people, members participated in special field trips and activities. Early in the year, they visited the Oktoberfest, an annual outdoor affair in Maryland. There, they sampled German food and drink while enjoying the music from an authentic Deutsch band. Around Home¬ coming time, they introduced their own float, " Jaguars Uber Alles. " Picnics and visits to the German Embassy and various German res¬ taurants added more spice. A feudal sire, his queen, knights, and several serfs, set on a plain of black and white squares — a medieval challenge — a provoca¬ tive game for the talents of the Chess Club. Moments of strained concentration, learn¬ ing the fundamentals of attack and defense, and planning stategic moves toward check¬ mate united members in common interest. 47 Organizations Youth Meets Youth in Outward Reach With the purpose of furthering under¬ standing and good will in the world, the American Field Service provided a personal student-exchange program. The job of raising over a thousand dollars for the project was no small task, but the junior diplomats managed to accumulate the desired sum with hard work and ingenious ideas. Selling stuffed animals and publishing a much-needed Student Directory were only a few of the jobs undertaken to raise the money required for sponsoring a foreign student. Their efforts proved well worth the work; exchange student Margaret Wall of New Zealand possessed a lively charm that seemed to close the gap between Virginia and her country on the other side of the world. AFS activities also enabled Ethan Arnow to spend the summer in Indonesia, an excellent oppor¬ tunity to kindle international relations. Through such vital experiences, the AFS was able to carry out its motto as the students became aware of the need for peace and understanding.

Frances Ayres spies on Luke Lu, John Birch and Danny Garregg as they concoct a new formula. Organizations Math Team and Science Fair Add Interest Obviously only students possessing good memories and quick minds could qualify to become members of the Math Honor Society. Having the ability to excel in this field was quite a talent to boast of. The requirements for entrance were stiff—one must have completed Algebra II—Trig, and must have made all B ' s in Math final exams. But the sigh of satisfaction at a completed problem and the thought of helping others through tutoring was worth the effort. A loud boom resounded through the school, shaking the building to it ' s foundation. Well, mistakes can happen, but as all Science Club members know, experimentation is one of the best ways.to gain valuable information. Experimenting in chemistry was not the only field of science the Club was interested in—biology and physics were also studied. Informative speakers often came to the meetings to make a presentation on their own special field of science. This enabled the " scientists” to obtain greater knowledge.

Excitement was in all the necessary planning before trips: pur¬ chasing equipment; carefully studying rock formations and cave life; acquiring adeptness in climbing techniques. Nothing, however, beat the thrill of actual exploration. Equipped with ropes, hooks, helmets and head-lamps, the group constantly encountered unexpected beauty and a bit of adrenalin-producing danger. Although not a first-year organization like the Speleology Club, the Rifle Club had the trial of not only finding a sponsor, but one with a knowledge of guns. They hit the bull ' s-eye with Mr. McCafferty. The Rifle Club had two dimensions: being open to everyone interested in guns; and containing a smaller group of sharp-shooters who com¬ peted as the Falls Church High School Rifle Team. Active participation and the excellent target range facilities at Fort Myer made this second out-of-the ordinary interest a success. Martie Reel is on target as Captain of the Rifle Team.

Organizations Each and Everyone Aiming at New Goals One of the most active clubs in the school, the Distributive Education Club was founded to further the ideals of the business world. This co-curricular organization started the year with a breakfast meeting at which new officers and members were installed. Other activities included attending DE Day at Virginia Commonwealth University, sponsoring an Employer-Employee Banquet and conducting an assembly program on DE courses available to students. In February, the club hosted the District Leadership Conference for DECA. There they participated in advertising, display, public speaking and job interview contests in hopes of going on to state competition later in the year. The Future Business Leaders proved they already knew the techniques of the business world. The organization was one of the wealthiest clubs after a highly successful sock hop. Wrapping up their year, they sponsored the annual Miss FC Beauty Contest and further enlarged their treasury. As instructors of the Distributive Education classes, Mr. Hawkins and Mrs. Rees also encourage participation in the DECA organization. The arrangement of an attractive counter display is part of the DE course. 54 Distributive Education instruction puts into practice all the skills which are vital in the world of work.

Organizations Idealists Face Future Fgture Homemakers of America, Future Teachers of America, and Youth for Christ were among the many smaller clubs whose importance was often overlooked among the larger groups. This trio provided training and offered opportunities to gain experience for future careers—but they also promoted fun and service to the community. This year Falls Church had the honor of claiming as its own-the FHA Chapter-of-the- Year. The Future Homemakers held “Daddy Date Nite " and a Mother-Daughter Dinner, provided a Merry Christmas for a needy family, and worked for the TB Association. The Future Teachers of America attended the county convention and sent two represen¬ tatives to the State Convention at Richmond. But there was also gaiety—at Slumber Parties and selling Tootsie Rolls. The Youth for Christ was best known for its IVIorning Devotion every Tuesday, but this club also held rallies and coffee houses— getting together, having fun, speaking out, and showing that they are for— Christ.

Organizations Jr. Citizens Serve Figuring out how to earn money, finding ways to be helpful to the school and community, spending time on activities were problems common to any service club and the Kadens and Civitans were no exceptions. Needless to say each club overcame these problems and had a good time doing it. Bake Sales, winning the float competition, selling candy were just a few of the devices employed by those imaginative Kadens to earn money. Their service projects were as varied as their money-making ventures. Sweeping the parking lots free of glass, checking coats at games, stuffing envelopes for the fight against TB; the list was endless. Not to be outdone by their female counterparts, the Civs invested their time in producing a sock-hop, collecting for the March of Dimes, cleaning up after games. Surprisingly both clubs experienced full participation on the part of their members. Perhaps this extraordinary enthusiasm could be attributed to the fact that they worked together on many of their projects.

Near Home¬ coming they honored the teachers that had been with the school for 25 years with posters, a cake, and corsages. Many activities and projects were planned and put into action—collecting for Unicef and Alsac, making Christmas stockings for the faculty, having a workday, and enjoying a dinner. Each member of the Torch and Banner Club could gtow with satisfaction at the services they performed. The TABS worked hard at the Cerebral Palsey Canter every second Saturday, while they managed a Donut Sale once a month.

Such distressing cries as " Who has the scale- ograph? " or " I ' ve got a horizontal picture for my vertical layout! " could often be heard piercing the silence of the halls. But the word which struck fear into the heart of every Jaguar staffer was " deadline. " " Deadline " meant all day emergency sessions on the weekends, quick trips to the photographers and frantic pleas for a shorter copy block. But somehow the minor miracle occured and the staff met the deadline. In more leisure moments, some members of the staff attended summer workshops at Catholic University in an effort to present the school with the best yearbook ever. The goal was not so much winning another 1st place rating as creating a meaningful 1970 edition of the Jaguar. It was a busy year, but as it drew to a close and the arrival of the yearbooks approached, they agreed it was worth it.

With Mrs. Crum as sponsor and Mrs. Cloe and Mr. Knapp as co-sponsors, the Art Club had as its two-fold purpose, to publicize and help finance the Art Department of the school and to encourage the development of artistic talent in the students. Activities included the yearly Art Club trip to New York and the annual school Art Show. To raise money for the $100.00 art scholarship award given by the club each year to a Senior, the Variety Show was sponsored. A new club in the school in 1970 was the Photo Club. Co-sponsored by Mr. Knapp and Mr. Kilby, the group began meeting after school weekly starting the second semester of the school year. The Photo Club had as it ' s purpose, to promote photographic expression throughout FCH and to present a learning situation to those advanced and beginning students who were interested in the art of Photography.

Then the wheels were set in motion: props were gathered, and after detailed planning, the set was constructed. Lighting was arranged, costumes designed—then rehearsals! " " The show must go on, " might have been the theme of the Drama Club as they industriously worked on dramatic produc¬ tions. Whether playing the parts of the assistant director, actor, crew, make-up artist they applied themselves with equal vigor. The production of the season ' s first play, " Charlie ' s Aunt " required the club ' s concern trated effort up to opening night. Members were easily recognizable while " in produc¬ tion " by their fatigued expression brought on by long bouts with rehearsals and set construction. Their reward came on opening night with standing ovations and cast parties. More honors came as the Thespian Honor Society recognized outstanding contributors. The production staff as well as veteran actors were eligible to join this circle of accom¬ plished artisans of the theatre. " Out of the night that covers me, Black as the Pit from pole to pole ...

Director Jerry Holloway made several innovations in the Choral Department: a music appreciation class was restricted to warbling females, was now composed of 60 singers, both girls and boys. An exciting program was planned with a choir in New Jersey and a different, more casual approach to concerts was made. The Choralairs, a Freshman girls ' group, experienced the art of proper breathing and memorized words to popular songs. Madrigals finally learned intricate Spanish carols, sang in Elementary Schools, and got their own practice room while the large A Capella boomed out " Amens " and spiritual melodies.

A coveted honor was being chosen as one of only eight high school bands in the state of Virginia to march in the Governor ' s Inaugural Parade. Another honor was bestowed upon them when they were selected to play for the UVA Homecoming game against Duke. The band marched, as well, in the Seven Corners Christmas parade and the Falls Church Memorial Day Parade. Often practicing at six in the morning or six in the evening, the band treated football crowds to a halftime performance rivaling the action on the field. Their talent was evidenced by the fact that they were chosen from among all the bands of Fairfax County to make a training film on the fundamentals of. marching to be shown to band instructors nation wide. The exciting year was capped by week long competition in Virginia Beach.

An experienced corps of upperclassmen was reinforced by the talents of the incoming Freshmen class to provide one of the best bands our school has had in years. This year, Falls Church High School was given the honor and responsibility of hosting the District Festival where the bands from every high school and junior high school in the area came in competition. In the All-regional band, Falls Church High Band members captured more seats than in any previous year, with nearly one quarter of that band made up of our students. A total of five solo chairs were awarded to participants in the FC group. Hours of in-school practice and evening practice sessions paid off in a superb spring Concert.

" The Pep Club introduced new ways of maintaining school loyalty and spirit with the addition of the unknown " human " Jaguar who jumped along with the Cheerleaders at football games. The club started a group of Pom Pom girls, reserving a special section in the stands to wave and shout. The Joy Boys, always a huge part of cheering football and basketball fans, per¬ formed a great service in stimulating student participation. No one could help but chant along with the boys in their spirited cries. Pep rallies were popular and the three squads of cheerleaders kept the fans informed about upcoming athletic contests and stirred up support with banners and gimmics.

These girls worked extra-hard, perfecting routines, in¬ venting new yells, creating clever locker stickers and posters and most of all, possessing energy, showmanship and pride. Whether they were stirring the crowd to a loud " Fight " or watching anxiously from the sidelines, they showed true character of a Jag. More spirit emerged this year as Junior Varsity Cheerleaders strove to boost the crowd and their team during the games. Beginning in the summer, J.V. girls practiced constantly to define the timing and precision necessary to lead an effective cheer. The Freshman Squad, selected early in the school year, also promoted unity and pep.

Football Varsity Jags Have Best Season in 25 Years For gridiron fans, the 1969 season ended years of waiting for " The Bell " and a championship football team. Led by experi¬ enced Seniors, many of whom had played on the Varsity since their Sophomore year, the Jags, put " all they had " into the game and came up with an 8-1-1 regular season and captured the N. Va. District Championship. A one point loss to Madison was the only disappointment of the regular season. With the Jag quarterback suffering a broken thumb, the Madison defense forced the Jags to a fourth down punt with less than two minutes remaining in the final quarter. A bad snap from center was fumbled and recovered by the Madison team. With slightly more than a minute left to play, the Warhawks went over for the touchdown, and their extra point made the final score 13—12. With their best season in the history of the school, the Jags won a rare victory 6ver highly rated Annandale and set a new school scoring record in their 56—0 victory ofer Fairfax in the Homecoming game.

The highlight of the season was the annual Stuart-Falls Church match where the arch¬ rivals met for a game in which the prized Bell was the trophy for the victors. The result, was doubly significant: The Jaguars wanted the Bell, and more important, this was a key game in the district. In a seesaw battle on that cold and rainy night, with about one minute left to play, the Raiders took a kick-off return all the way for a score to lead 22 to 21. In a drive led by Jim Flather the Jags moved the ball within scoring range and with 26 seconds remaining Pat Bell put the kick through the uprights for a field goal to give the Jags a 24—22 victory and the Bell for the first time in a decade. In the last game of the regular season, after trailing by 15 points at the half, the mighty Jags came back in the second half to a 15—15 tie with Woodson to capture the Northern District Championship. In post-season play, the Jags met the under-rated Hammond Admirals and were dealt a disappointing 20—13 loss. This gave Falls Church the title of Virginia 1-A League Runner-up with still the best team ever in the school ' s 25 year history. The quality of our well-rated team was shown by the fact that we placed both defensive and offensive players on the All-Metropolitan and All-District teams. With a returning quarterback, kicker, and running backs, plus the District Champ JV team it looks as if Falls Church will hold onto the bell and the Northern District Championship for a few years to come.

Two losses to Woodson denied them their bid for district honors. However, the season was highly successful and produced one of the best records in the Northern Virginia Area. Led by the 6 ' 6 forward All Kendal! and center Dave Mastro- paolo the Varsity provided many exciting moments of play. This year ' s team had more experience than teams in the past yet we still couldn ' t take the elusive Woodson Cavaliers. They showed a marked improvement in rebounds and overall good play. Special honors should go to Seniors Jim Flather, Ken Currie, David Oliver and Rick Todd all of whom played with more enthusiasm and hustle than normally expected. Though the juniors played very little, Dave Mastropaolo played almost every minute of every game and showed that he was twice the player he was last year.

Coach Spewak took over the JV ' s and did a magnificent job. His organization and thoroughness took a mediocre 4-3 team and transformed them into winners—no longer confused freshmen, but experienced players. The fine points of the game became polished and " execution” was stressed. Despite a short practice season, the coach of the Freshman team, Mr. Bennett, brought the boys through a productive season. Having learned the basic plays and fundamentals of basketball, they were no longer playing with the " neighborhood gang " but were playing a well-disciplined " team " game, accepting their roles as team members and participating in the game as a unit.

Wrestling Coach Creates New Wrestling Squad A new dimension was added to wrestling. Mr. Dick knowing that there was no substitute for experience created a new Freshmen wrestling squad. Going on the theory that more seasoned players are bigger competition, he concentrated effort in the JV and Freshmen ranks. It was from these boys that he hoped to create more district winners. Encouragement was poured on as they were put through the paces of mastering the inticacies of holds and escapes. Skillful execution and technical maneuvers were stressed to gain points. The team rose to the challenge putting every muscle into play to learn the feints and tricks that produced a fine season. Special thanks should go to Mr. Dick for the immense amount of time and heart he put into developing these squads. For Danny Haftsook ' s opponent, time is running out. 101 A pitcher at practice.

Baseball On the Spring Sports Scene - Jag Baseball The eight of last year ' s fourteen Varsity men returning (six of them regulars) the Varsity Baseball Jags were the team to beat for the Northern District Crown. The Junior Varsity also shaped up as a solid unit, and with their new coach, Mr. Krumm, they promised to be an exciting team. Cold afternoon practices and brisk Saturday scrimmages were a prelude to the exciting season ahead. This year the Jags had a lighted field and fifteen of the eighteen Varsity games were played under the lights. With all these added dimensions, the Jaguar Baseball squads looked toward a most prosperous season.

Cross Country captain John Elwood and the other boys dodged bushes and trees to make it through the two and a half mile course. As each man.crossed the finish line, he was given a stick which.denoted what place he held in the race. Later, the sticks of the first five men were totaled and the team with the lowest score won. Contrary to the misconception of many, the Track team did not consist solely of runners. In high school track, there are a total of fifteen events, among them; pole vaulting, the triple jump and the shotput. For the first time in the history of FC, the team led by Steve Dikes and Dave Sickle, participated in an indoor meet at Annapolis.

Golf and Tennis Golf, Tennis Start " Rebuilding” Program Of all the Varsity sports, tennis and golf stood out for one particular reason: unlike football, basketball and wrestling-whigh are essentially team efforts and difficult for most to pursue for even a iimited time after high school, tennis and golf require only two to four players and allow an individual to participate in them to a ripe old age. Five district matches, additional bouts with TC Williams and Groveton and the two day Quantico Invitation neatly summed up the golf season. The secret of turning several golfers into one team was found in the way the matches were conducted. First, there were six individual matches with a possible six points, followed by three matches between teams of two. A relatively new team to FC, the tennis squad experienced its third coach. There were the usual adjustments necessary when a new adviser is involved, but all things were smoothed out quickly, allowing the team to enjoy a profitable season. % m m ■Hf Jif Jay " Poncho” May looks the ball right into his raquet.

GAA Gymnastics Combine Grace and Strength Developing skill and providing enjoyment for all girls whose interests centered around sports, was one of the goals of the Girls Athletic Association. Through its intramural program, girls of all grades could practice such sports as archery, tennis, gymnastics, basket¬ ball and track after school hours, and gain the satisfaction of learning new skills and acquiring abilities. Supporting the girls ' athletic teams was another main function of the G.A.A. Members earned money to help purchase track uniforms by selling Booster sub¬ scriptions during the summer. The friendly girls behind the concession stands at varsity foorball and basketball games were also G.A.A. members, busily obtaining money that would later be used to purchase equipment for the girls ' sports teams. Girls on sports teams were also given honorary membership. To further motivate the members, points were given according to participation, and as the year came to a close, awards were handed out to the highest scorers.

Although their manner was not as flam¬ boyant as that of the Globetrotters, the style in which the girls fought their way to a winning season was not unlike a finely tuned, highly precisioned machine. Led by team captains, Shirley Jones and Erika Kancler, the girls pulled a 6-5 season and placed high in their district. Running laps, forever practicing foul shots, developing new skills and perfecting old ones, were all responsible for the successful year. Plagued by inexperience, the JV ' s turned to Kathryn Schoellig and Anned Wells for guidance. The result... a 6-5 record and a few girls with such potential that they shook up even the most assured, confident Varsity member.

Softball Spring Sports Season Dominated by Softball Like traveling gypsies, the girls ' s Softball teams have had to wander endlessly to find a place to play. For two years the girls ran to practices at nearby Walnut Hill Elementary School, or the poor souls were transported to Whittier Intermediate. However, this season was different, for the teams finally found a field to call home. Nestled between the football and hockey fields, their diamond was finally ready. Although the turnout for the Varsity squad was a bit disappointing, the number of girls trying for Junior Varsity was over¬ whelming—a pleasant surprise for the newJV coach. A new field, a new coach and new girls equaled a new chance for a winning Softball season. 114 Girls Softball April 7 Jefferson April 9 Woodson April 14 Fairfax April 16 Stuart April 21 Annandale April 23 Jefferson April 28 Woodson April 30 Fairfax May 5 Stuart May 7 Annandale JV SOFTBALL: Front Row: Debbie Williams, Pattie Stryker, Kathy Klewicki, Sherry Daniels, Margie Stallings; Second: Judy Inman, Dawn Poole, Sue Genduso, Sue Hughes, Barbara Major, Mrs. Hearne; Third: Sue Ball, Debbie Joseph, Gai Duncan, Debbie Erwin, Cindy Grant. 115 EVENTS Continuing to twinkle in the sun . . . to sway to the piper breeze . . .

The weekend began with the high-spirited contest against Fairfax, ending in a 57-0 Jaguar victory, a new school scoring-record. Exhilerating though the game was, the real excitement was found at halftime with the traditional presen¬ tation of the court. Then, the big moment. fanfares... a hush—and the announcement of the Homecoming queen. The excitement carried over to Saturday night, when the big dance topped off the enjoyable weekend.

Why imper¬ sonate somebody else, of course! With mistaken indentities the order of the day, the drama department brought to the stage of Falls Church High School, Brandon Thomas ' s hilarious play, Charlie ' s Aunt. After auditions, the selected cast went through a rigorous schedule of rehearsal, while numerous staffs spent hours construct¬ ing sets and costumes, coordinating lights and searching for the perfect props. Tensions built in anticipation of opening night for their first production of the year. A smashing success, the fall play featured the talents of Andy Heyman in the title role, with veterans Reba Trask, Kathryn Mann, Robin Lance, Melinda Pittman, Gerry Buck, Steve Ball, John Godlove; and newcomers to the stage, Craig Geoffrion and Mike Davitt completing the cast. Showing its ability with this successful comedy, the drama department promised to bring our school a memorable season.

Events Money Is the Aim to Get Them Fame Jagged jeans, checkered shirts and straw hats were the attire for guys and girls who attended the Sadie Hawkins Dance. No gals were seen literally dragging dates by the hair on their head, but somehow they all managed to get their men up to the altar. A week before the dance the jingling of money in decorated cans could be heard echoing down the halls as Sadie Hawkins candidates were on the move, grubbing for pennies from helpless students to win the coveted roles. As a result of the vicious competition, the Dogpatch gang was named as follows: L ' il Abner, R. Blair; T. Yokum; V. Meadows; H. Abe, D. Boger; I. Polecat, L. Bertram; P. Yokum, S. Daniels; M.

Yet, after the blood, sweat and tears of blocking, memorizing lines and being tempermental (as only the “stars " are permitted) familiar melodies finally gelled into a recognizable whole in the drama and choral department ' s full-fledged production of the popular Rogers and Hammerstein broadway show " South Pacific. ' Adapted from James Mitchener ' s Pulitzer Prize winning novel " Tales of the South Pacific, " the play was an exciting, romantic episode set in the period of World War II. The cast included Cindy Plank as Nelly Forbush, Steve May as Emile de Becque, Andy Heyman as the comic sailor, Luther Beilis; Mary Holloway as Bloody Mary, Steve Farrell and Steve Ball as Marines; Carolyn Moore, Debby Smith, Joanie Dixon, Nancy Kirkland, Julie Martin, Debbie Brosha, Diane Hillman as the Nurses and Ted Rose, Bill Nies, Larry Bussle, John Godlove as CP ' s. 125 Carinne Binda and her shadow perform a pas de deux.

The proceeds from the show go toward an art scholarship presented at the end of the year. Numberous guitar acts indicated a pre¬ dominant talent for this music among the students, but performances also included the twirling of batons, a calypso cance, a piano recital and display of gymnastics. Unaffected by their lack of experience in performing on stage, most showed amazing poise and in some cases even a professional touch as entertainers. The performers worked hard rehearsing for opening night and their efforts paid off with a show that entertained even the “old folks " that came out in fair number.

Events Staging Innovation Susy Hendrix knew they were after the doll—but could she keep it from three desperate criminals? Could a blind woman trick a madman—and a suspected murderer— until her husband would return? She could if she used the darkness to her advantage. Susy was the heroine in Frederic Knott ' s mystery-thriller, " Wait Until Dark " presented by the Drama Club for their first production using the thrust stage. This unique concept in staging allowed the audience to become completely involved in the action of the play. This advantage for the audience usually causes minor problems in staging, but the ingenious directors were able to overcome handicaps and produce thrilling drama. Almost stealing the show with her lead role, Sarah Moore portrayed the blind girl caught up in a nightmare. Her husband was played by Gerry Buck; Andy Heyman played the villianous Harry Roat. Other members of the cast included Kathy Mann as Gloria, Gary Swanson as Mike Talman and Mike Reinemer as Sergeant Carlino.

Mainly, I wish to thank you all at Falls Church High for making this the most wonderful year of my life. Of all the schools I have visited while here, I will always look on Falls Church, the home of the Jaguars, as the best.

Individuals who act and react differently— Who discover in a modified dress code a means of self-expression—or a boon in coping with extreme record—low winter temperature . . , Who heed the herd or clan instinct within a class, a sport, a club—or who prefer to walk alone . . . Who fill each spare moment with activity . . . Who pause for quiet contemplation . . . Who revel in energetic discussion . . . Who find pleasure in the simple act of flying a kite on a windy day. As individuals, they are in different stages of development: Unexperienced neophytes entering a new state of existence; Those further in metamorphosis—already adapted to the environment, assimilating knowledge from the experts; A class of almost full-fledged adults, shedding the infantile image, preparing to emerge from the protective envelope of silky threads encasing them: gathering strength to make that first bold flight. . . Individuals Freshman Faces Reflect a Variety of Activity With determination, the Freshman Class showed itself ready to tackle the responsi¬ bilities of high school. The status-quo for veterans of a new-founded independence, a longer day and longer periods, at first caused anxiety for the frosh, trying to adjust to this challenging environment. The wide range of ages, upperclassmen privileges to look forward to, new teachers, new faces — all became a part of the world the class discovered at F.C.H.S. Not to be overcome by these changes, the Freshmen set out immediately to find their place. FHolding class elections, they chose their leaders, and later, infiltrated numerous clubs, captured important roles in the school ' s plays and drew positions in the concert and marching bands. Unlike previous classes, this year ' s Frosh were quick to be caught up in the spirit of the school. At the very first pep rallies, they got the hang of " Battle Cry " and their vocal abilities challenged even the mighty Seniors. Showing their pride, they created a rarity among recent Freshman classes—a home¬ coming float—and went on to do a superlative job decorating halls prior to the Stuart football game. With the future already in mind, the Class of ' 73 made a good start toward putting away enough money to avoid the financial pressures that annually beseige Juniors. Thus, in many ways, a well-rounded, well-prepared Freshman Class had taken sure and confident steps in beginning their long trek through high school.

Officer; Georgina Oke, Pres. Individuals Sophomore Class Is on the Rise Toward Seniority No longer the “babies " of the school, the Sophomores proved themselves as capable of organization and success as any other class. In an effort to increase participation (and profits!), the class of 1972 sponsored bake sales and dues drives with equal energy. Not to be outdone in the spirit department by the upperclassmen, they carefully planned their participation in the hall decorations preceding the Stuart football game. A " magical potion " for victory and a host of cackling " witches " was their contribution for the Homecoming float competition. Fattening the treasury was the main concern of the second-year men. In anticipa¬ tion of next year ' s prom, they devoted their time and energy—and a little fun—towards the realization of this goal. Countless class meetings were held by the hard-working officers to accomplish their goals. No longer could these sophomores be considered strangers to the school; whether supporting their class of their J.V. athletic teams, they displayed enthusiastic spirit and drive. Sophomores incite riot? 154 Beatriz Abalos Diane Abies Valerie Agnelli Kathy Aker Brenda Aibert Guy Almodover Jeanne Alsager Dianne Amon Danny Anderson Ronaldo Araujo Scott Arnold Frank Atchison James Baird Curt Baker Karen Bales Debbie Ball Janice Ball Denis Barnes Christmas is the perfect time for the Sophomore Class bake sale. 155 i ndividuals Sophomores Demonstrate Potential Sheila Beals Bruce Belyea Bill Berg Mike Berry h i 11 Barbara Bertinchamps Donna Bickham John Biddle Dieter Billick Carinne Binda Sherrie Birk Denise Bischof Rick Bjorklund Brenda Black Linda Blake Steve Blaylock Debbie Boaze m 1 l Lucy Boland Robin Botkin Bill Bowen Charles Bowes Robert Bowman Phillip Bozarth Debora Brandt John Brockman Jo Ann Brooks Vickie Bryan Rick Buck Carl Bucklin Barry Bugg John Bugg Gary Bunch Jeannette Burner Cheryl Burroway Mike Burton Sue Burton Judy Bussler Wendy Cain Eugene Carlisle Patsy Carrier Harry Chester 156 Poised and feminine, Mary McGraw waves to the admiring Homecoming crowds.

Individuals Juniors Seek Higher Status The appellation, " Junior " sparked the ascending students with strength and en¬ thusiasm; the long-awaited day had come. At last they were warmed by the feeling of prestige surrounding an upperclassman. Being a Junior meant striving for excellence in athletics, scholarship and leadership. In addition, much time, thought and effort went into planning for the financing of the future Junior-Senior Prom. Bake sales, car washes, spaghetti dinners, dues drives—all brought the ' 70 Prom just a step closer to reality. One of their more elaborate money making activities was the Christmas Dance. To overcome the sad results of former years—the return of little or no profit—the inventive class tried the extra inducements of a queen and court and switching tags of semi-formal to " suit dance " . It seemed as soon as one dance was over there was another just around the corner. To celebrate their newly arrived rings the Ring Dance was held. And finally on May 23rd at the Marriott ' s Twin Bridges Motel—the Prom! Hopes are high for a profitable affair. 168 Gary Acord Pat Agnelli Earl Amole Joe Anderson Linda Anderson Bonnie Ashby Patty Ayres William Bailey Stephen Ball Joan Barbash Gayle Barnwell Carol Barrett Maxine Barrus William Barton Jana Beals Mary Jane Bell Rich Belyea Nancy Benedict Marcy Benfell Chip Benson Scott Bernheim Mike Bevans Peggy Biggs Ron Bjorlurid Tom Blake Judy Blankenship Sue Bleckley Debbie Blough Mike Blough Linda Blundell 169 Brian Bogan Robert Boger Rita Booth Suzanne Boucher Joann Boyle Floyd Bradd Bonnie Brooks Debbie Brosha Dennis Brown John Brown Mike Buchan Nancy Buckley Leigh Buckman Buddy Bundy Cathleen Burke Jim Burke Connie Burroughs Gail Butler Ron Campbell Allan Carr Alan Carraway Jimmy Carroll Valerie Carter Cathy Chapman Roger Chapman Don Chiotos Ray Chittenden Lisa Chomko Rich Christiansen Scott Christopher 170 Individuals Juniors Set Precedent With Additional Queen Shauna Chugg Barry Clark Debra Clark Linda Clark Terry Clark Mark Clarke Pam Clayton Tom Cole Donna Collins Jerry Collins Nancy Connell Frank Conner Ann Cook Sonja Cook Jennifer Cooney Energetic Juniors decorate for the Christmas Dance.

A it.. Individuals Maturity Demands Eric Reinemer demonstrates concern for his nation at the Moratorium seminar. Involvement Seniors are a multitude of individuals, finally emerging as leaders in the school. Seniors are the creators of that environment so identifiable with Falls Church High School. Seniors are the voice at a pep rally, the spark at the SCA meeting, the source of pride at a school function. Seniors are Biology II, Humanities, Economics, Sociology, Physics ... a variety of advanced courses. Seniors are students with a second semester slump, and a quick revival right before finals. Seniors are UPPERCLASSMEN and all the privileges that go along with it. Seniors are a cut card, a front seat at assemblies, a courtyard, and— lastly—a diploma. Seniors are applicants—to college, to busi¬ nesses, to life. Seniors are.

Mrs. Picardi took a course in the art of film-making and plans to utilize this experience to teach script writing. When he isn ' t revealing the fine points of English Grammar to struggling Freshmen, Mr. Sidney Bennett busies himself with coaching the Frosh Basketball and Golf teams. 222 Individuals English Teachers Use Variety of Techniques to Illuminate Specialties Mrs. Jan Herman directed the English Department in a revamping of traditional English and Humanities classes. Class partici¬ pation summed up her method of getting knowledge to the students painlessly. Mrs. Susan Combs and Mrs. Sandi Green found they had much in common when they first came to FC last year. Both taught under¬ classmen, and both sponsored the Keyettes. This past year brought them even closer to- gether-they taught in adjoining rooms! The Junior class was fortunate to obtain the effervescent Mr. Craig Goheen as their sponsor; he proved to be their answer to the Communication Gap. Mr. Thomas Brogan managed to combine careers as an English teacher and professional musician. A newcomer to FC, he was pulled right into the school ' s mad whirl as sponsor of the yearbook. In addition to teaching thematic English, Mrs. Margaret Fitzgerald spent most of her time moving into and furnishing her new home. No sooner did she get settled then the AFS adopted her as their sponsor. Newcomer Mrs. Mary Walker, immediately found a place working with the AFS Club, having been an AFS student herself in high school. Tennis, riding, swimming and anthro¬ pology fill her time outside of school. Mrs. Mary Shearon ' s " thing " was teaching a class in Rock Poetry. In her more conven¬ tional moments, she served as sponsor of the National Junior Honor Society. Thematic English instructor and sponsor of the Future Teachers of America, Miss Annie Powell worked to encourage students to enter her chosen profession. Reading, scholarship and family combined into a perfect portrait of Mrs. Annie Romanus. In addition to her ninth grade English classes, she crossed department lines and taught Latin. Unusual activities evidently abound in the department. For example, Mr. Davaik Spewak enjoys surfing when he ' s not coaching. After having taught in Kenya for two years, Miss Linda Miller found teaching the Jaguars rather tame. With a degree in English and Journalism, she fearlessly tackled the job of sponsor for the Jaguar Journal and im¬ pressed the staff with her enthusiasm. Mrs. Susan Fenn is one of our more mysterious faculty members. Emphasing the word THINK, Mr. Larry Dowell inspires even the lazy Seniors to delve into the philosophy of the Great Books and the pleasures of the arts. 223 Individuals Light-Hearted Approach Tried Mr. Arthur Fletcher chose the " inquiry approach " to instruct his World History classes. Sponsoring the Debate Club and col¬ lecting stamps occupy his free moments. Mrs. Wilma Hamilton displayed her en¬ thusiasm through sponsorship of our " It ' s Academic " Team and the active Pep Club. Of course, teaching U.S. History is her prime activity, but her favorite pastime is playing the piano and organ. Attempting to make government suit the students ' interest was the ambition of Mrs. Carolyn Harper, as she employed personalized field trips, more outside speakers and unique classroom projects. She encouraged student involvement in extracurricular activities as well, as her sponsorship of the AFS proved. Capitalizing on travel experience during his 28 years in the Air Force, Colonel Mac Daniel brought World Geography to life for his classes. Another active teacher, both in and out of school, he enjoys golfing, bowling, playing bridge and deep-sea fishing when he isn ' t busy assisting the Sophomore Class. Mr. George Steppe became an immediate hit with the students in his first year as a government teacher at FCH. A graduate of Morehead State University, he holds a degree in Political Science and Secondary Education. He claims to enjoy all spectator sports. A graduate of Princeton University, Mr. Murphy headed the Social Studies Depart¬ ment. In addition to his many duties as a teacher, he generously consented to serve as Senior Class Sponsor in the absence of Mr. Azzara.

Prob¬ lems which at times seemed insurmountable nevertheless were solved by the able group charged with supplying needed assistance or advice. Mrs. Ryan, Head Librarian, not only supplied reference material but helped stu¬ dents achieve the best use of the library.

Allowing the administration, librarians and guidance counselors to attend to other matters, the secretarial staff handled tele¬ phone reception and piles of paper work. Student report cards, daily attendance records, financial business and the provision of students ' neccessary supplies were managed by the workers of the Finance Office, school store and ADP. The hard-working Cafeteria team con¬ cocted the hearty mid-day meal which helped the student body and teachers find the strength to face the second half of the day. Handling the infrequent ailing student and the all too frequent " schoolitis " cases was the very able clinic staff. Responding to unusual intercom bleeps, custodians kept FC ' s sparking appearance. It would be an understatement to say that our school could not get along without the tremendous daily efforts of our staffs.
