HEISEY, Principal Fulfilling the duties of king, whether red or white, Mr. Victor D. Heisey actively functions in the position of principal of Fort Hill High School. He is highly respect- ed by students and faculty alike. for his understanding and capa- bility enable school routine to flow along with the ease of the Walrus' tears. Broadening the students' view of life has been one of Mr. Heisey's aims and accomplish- ments, for through his efforts, var- ied courses, activities, and assem- blies have enabled the students to see both sides of the looking glass. More power to one of the finest principals in the school system, and our appreciation for his un- derstanding guidance. SEATED-Miss Hamilton. Mathematics: Miss Wlllison. English: Miss Sebree. Miisicz Mr. Heisey, Principal, STANDlNG-Mr. Rirchie, Commercial: Mr. Shumaker. Languages: Mr. Wimer, Vice-Principal: Mrs. Hughes. Dean of Girls. NOT PICTURED-Miss Miller, Home Economics: Mrs. Blough, Visual Educ-ationg Mr. Morris. Social Studies. Directing the moves on Fort Hill's chessboard is the Principal's Cabinet. This group consists of Principal Victor D. Heiseyg Vice Principal Ralph Wimerg Miss Nellie Willi- son, head of the English Department, Miss Margaret Hamil- ton, Mathematics Departmentg Miss Evelyn Miller, Home Economics Departrnentg Mr. Warren Shumaker, Language Departmentg Miss Dorothy Sebree, Music Departmentg Mr. Robert Morris, History Department, Mr. Paul Perdew, Visual Education, and Mrs. Ada Hughes, Dean of Girls. The Prin- cipal's Cabinet is the policy forming committee of the school. The Cabinet meets on Mondays after school, when the problems of the school are discussed and solved. The chief purposes of the group are to act as adviser to the Principal, make suggestions for the maintenance and im- provement of the school, and, in general, to act as a clearing house for all school problems. The Cabinet is one of the many democratic plans effectively operating at Fort Hill. Since it includes the heads of departments, each de- partment has a part in the administration of school affairs. KITTY PAPEL, Secretary "Kitty" in Fort Hill lingo, does not refer to the Cheshire cat, but is the pet name for the school secretary, Miss Patel. Acknowledged as queen in the office, school life revolves around her constant activity, and interest in student life. Often faced with numberless tasks that would drive even the Mad Hatter insane, Kitty is always ready with a smile. The activities of the school are Without a doubt, de- pendent on the office force for the management of their affairs. When Alice peeked through the looking-glass she saw wonderful things, but no more wonderful than the in- numerable accomplishments of Kitty and her staff. RALPH WIMER, V1ce-Principal Mr. Ralph Wimer joined our faculty this year as vice-principal and physics instruc- tor, a position left vacant last year by the entrance of William Hodgson into the Navy. Mr. Wimer is a native of Ridgeley, West Virginia but spent most of his life in Par- sons, West Virginia. This year Mr. Wimer, in addition to teaching physics and handling discipline cases, instructed eighth grade mathematics and gave the morning announcements. After graduating from Parsons High School Mr. Wimer attended Shenandoah College for two years. He completed his work at Davis-Elkins College where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree. Embarking upon his career as educator, Mr. Wimer first taught science, mathema- tics, and athletics for one year. Transferring to Parsons, he taught science, chemistry, coached athletics two years and served as Boys' Hi-Y adviser and finally, principal of this school. Mr. Wimer has traveled extensively through North America. He has visited forty- four of the forty-eight states and has also visited Canada and Mexico by trailer. To Mr. Wimer the "Sabre" Wishes all the success he can possibly attain here at Fort Hill in his role of guide of student conduct. "H: f Sw ,V .. V s ' af, V "' a 'W'Wwy1 m'HwW'W fm.

The country was mapped out in squares cmd Alice had to move through eight of them before she could become a queen and wear a golden crown as she longed to do. A Each of the one hundred and seventy-eight members of the class of '44 has looked forward to the day when he would become a senior and wear a cap and gown. And, as the Walrus said, "The time has come-." Officers of the class of '44 were Kenneth Hensel, presidentg Carroll Mahaney, vice-presidentg Iackie Ringler, treasurer, and Valencia Arthur, secretary. Miss Kathleen Cumbee was adviser, The class colors were red and white, and the flower was the red rose. Ianuary 7, the Senior Prom was held. The event was a brilliant success. Military insignia sparkled from the walls and the ceiling was a maze of stars. The prom was held in honor of the nine senior boys who were leaving to join the armed forces-Warren Squires, Ernest Whitman, Robert Hamilton, Harold Chaney, Palmer Sullivan, Robert Miller, David Wright, Thomas Smith, and Paul Weaver. In the annual Play Tournament, held Ianuary' 27, the Seniors took top honors with their play "No Curtain Ca1ls," directed by Hartley Wigfield, and starring Bill Taylor, Lester Long, Charles Kunes, Wayne Ansel, and Palmer Sullivan. Fort Hill's first mystery play since "lnvitation to Murder"- 1939-was presented by the Senior Class, April 28. The play was entitled "Murder Mansion" and proved as gruesome, and spine chilling as its name suggests. The cast included Ruth Ellen Dayton, Dorothy Coleman, Lois Hanks, Marjorie Dolly, Iackie Ringler, Mary Iane Edwards, Wayne Ansel, Hartley Wigfield, Robert Tomsko, and Donald Umstot. This year, for the first time in the history of Fort Hill, juniors who would be eighteen and be drafted before graduating, were allowed to graduate with the class of '44. Thus we have an epitome of the class of '44, dent.

SECOND ROVV--Robert Miller om Smith, David Wright: Palmer Sullivan. Th as At the end of the first semester eight senior boys who had reached draft age were given their diplomas and seven are now serving in the armed forces. The eighth, David Wright, is attend- ing college. A special graduation exercise was held in the audi- torium for the senior high school students, parents, and friends.

Deetz, were selected at the beginning of the '43-'44 school term. The first business of the class was the ordering of class rings and the collection of dues early in the term. The annual Iunior-Senior Prom was held December 16 in honor of the nine boys who graduated at the end of the first semester. The chairman of the various committees who deserve much Commendation were decoration. Don Mason, refreshments, Evelyn Sommerlattg publicity, Norma Coleg in- vitation, Elaine Partleton. The Iunior Class participated in the play tournament. Darl Iewell was elected the best actor in Fort Hill for the second year in succession.

This year the Sophomore Class again organized under the direction and sponsorship of Mr. Paul Perdew. After carefully considering their group. Kenneth Iames was elected presidentg William McBride, vice-presidentp Michael La Gratta, secretaryp and Frederick Partleton, treasurer. At the be- ginning of the second semester, Kenneth Iames resigned as president when he departed from Cumberland. The class decided on roses for the class flower and the dues were set at fifty cents. When discussing their class party they concluded that the party would be a dance and a party combined. This year as every other year the Sophomore Class participated in the annual play tournament. For the first time in 3 years the Sophomores lost but they made a good showing in the tournament. To the Senior Class of nineteen- hundred and forty-six the "Sabre" Wishes the best of luck and success. D B I. G C R B T L B ROW ONE-D. Thrasher, M. Easton. Nl. Twigg, E. Pinault. . Bird, A. Poling.

In the ninth grade the students choose their subjects and courses. This is an important step and is the beginning of the system used at Fort Hill to train the students to accept the re- sponsibilities of the outside World. No officers are elected except in home-rooms until the beginning ot the sophomore year. This is another big step in this system of training and much thought is put upon it. The Freshmen are very active in different clubs and organ- izations to which they are eligible, some of which are the band, sponsored by Miss Garbrick, the Iunior Players coached by Miss Boughton, the Art Club under Mrs. Borchers, and the Glee Clubs, under the direction of Miss Sebree.

In the land which Alice discovered on the other side of the Looking-Glass, kingdoms seemed to be quite the style, for the Red King and the Red Queen, and the White King and White Queen were important characters in Alice's adventures in Looking-Glass Land. Fort Hil1's student governing body, the Student Council, like our national government, consists of two houses, the Senate and the House of Representatives. The Senate is composed of the President and six officers, three luniors and three Seniors, elected at the end of the previous school year. This year's Senate included President Ronald Armbrusterg Ann Britt, Secretary of Social Affairsp Eunice Brookley, Secretary of Industry: Norma Cole, Secretaryg Vivian Strieby, Vice-President and Parliamentarian, and Evelyn Sommerlatt, Treasurer. Tom Smith acted acted as Secretary of Traffic until his graduation in Ianuary, when the Senate appointed Annabel Simons as his Prede- cessor. The offices of Secretary of Social Affairs, Industry, and Traf- fic are always filled by Seniors, while Iuniors perform the duties of the secretary, treasurer, and vice-president. Advisers of the Student Council are Mr. Robert Morris, Mrs. Helen Russell, Miss Regina McCulley, Miss Lillian Myers fDepart- ment of Industryl, Mrs. Nellie Hylton fDepartment of Social Affairsl and Miss Alverda Ford fDepartment of Trafficl. The House of Representatives consists of a member of each home room elected at the beginning of the school year. Each repre- sentative is expected to attend the weekly Tuesday meetings, pres- ent problems suggested by the home rooms, and report the out- come of each meeting to the home room. The Student Council this year has been a very active organi- zation. The first project of the Council was to turn an unused shop room into a social room, complete with a juke box and modern records. The few pennies admittance fee has helped the group finance several other Worthwhile projects. Mirrors for the girls' and boys' lavatories were purchased out of the Student Council treasury. Social Rooms fees also helped pay for the frames and glass coverings which were bought to hold the Hall of Fame. This con- sists of several hundred photos of service men and Women who have graduated from Fort Hill and Penn Avenue. The committee in charge of mounting and collecting the pictures included Eunice Brookley, chairman, Wanda Lee Steele, and William Steppe. Ron- ald Armbruster and Mr. Robert Morris composed the purchasing committee. During the first Week in March, the Student Council conducted the election of the May Queen and attendants. Much credit should go to President Ronald Armbruster, and Adviser Robert Morris, Who directed the election, and with the help of Fort Hill's Secretary, Kitty Pafel, counted 800 ballots. This year's Student Council made history by organizing the publication of Fort Hill's first handbook. This pocket-size booklet contains a complete analysis of Fort Hill's clubs, faculty, history, rules and regulations, songs, cheers, and the time schedule. With Miss Margaret Hamilton as adviser the handbook staff included Ronald Armbruster, Iean Rice, Iean Curl, Wanda Lee Steele, and editor, Eunice Brookley. Besides performing all these duties, it is the special duty of all Student Council members to live up to the Student Council Oath. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ROW ONE-F. Stimely, B. Thomas. C, Brant. D.

Aksociale Editor. , We, the members of the 1944 Sabre Staff, are the authors of your mod- ern versions of Alice ln Wonderland. This Sabre which you are now holding is an interesting, exciting, and entertaining record of Alice's travels through Wonderland. "Wonderland?" you ask. "Yes," We say, "Fort Hill is a wonderland, not only as Alice sees it but also in the eyes of every new student to enter its enchanting portals, mysterious, exciting, challenging, to all of us. Our fictitious Alice, at about twelve or thirteen years of age, came into Fort Hill to spend six short years in traveling through mysterious corridors and fascinating classrooms-to learn about things which she never dreamed existed except in fairy tales. Here is depicted for your enjoyment Alice's souvenir of her Wonderland as she is about to leave after six splendid years-a scrapbook which she has kept of her travels as produced by your author-Hartley Wigfield-known to the rest of us as editor-in-chiefg his assistants, Ruth Ann Scott, associate editorg and their ever faithful and ready-to-help advser, Miss Dorothy Sturdivant. Work was begun on this annual in the fall when an entirely different theme was decided upon. A "dummy" was made and the art editor, Clara Belle Largent, assisted by Thomas Samuel, began work on appro- priate sketches to "liven up" the Sabre. The advertising campaign was begun early and lasted for two weeks. Its success was due to the splendid work of Wanda Lee Steele. advertising manager, and the willing co-operation of her hard working staff. Snapshots and photographs were contributed by Mr. Robert Gold- fine working with Esther Newlen, photography editor. Pictures of teach- ers, students, clubs, and activities were taken. These were mounted by the layout staff and another section of the book was complete. Now, the literary work began and that staff under the direction of Virginia Owens, literary editor, got under way. Their work lasted three Weeks during which time they secured the information compiled in the Sabre and wove into it the intricate Alice in Wonderland pattern. The layout staff sewed up the loose ends, checked for flaws, and sent the material off to the press. EDITORS AND MANAGERS SEATED--Ruth Martin, David Wright, Sports: Marie Brown.

It has tried to please the student body but that has been hard to do. The month of March was a full one for the Sentinel staff. Besides its two issues in March the Sentinel held a skating party on the fifteenth, and one week later eight members of the staff traveled to New York in order to attend The Columbia Scholastic Press Conference. Leaving on the twenty-second of March, they stayed in New York until the twenty-sixth.

Each year towards the end of the term Mr. Heisey circulates among the teachers a list of the names of students who have achieved a high scholastic standing. From this list the teach- ers judge the candidates on the merits of leadership, character, and service. The formal initiation held on May 17 was an impressive pro- gram. The newly-elected members were dressed in white and made a striking picture as they stepped forward to sign their names upon the National Honor Society roster. The four ideals ot the Society-Scholarship, Leadership, Char- acter, and Service-were presented by the girls who were chosen ROW ONE-Last year's Members--M. I. Ervin, M. I.. Campbell, A. Simons, I.

THE VERSE SPEAKING CHOIR The choral replies of Tweedledee and Tweedledum furnish inspiration for the members of the Verse Speaking Choir, who further their knowledge of elocution through choric work. President Alma Lee Thomas and Marie Douglass, secretary, have per- formed their duties as officers of this organization, which is a branch of the Fort Hill Players. This year, for the first time in recent years, the Choir presented a recital composed entirely of choric readings. The girls who form this group have shown considerable progress in their attainments.

FORT HILL PLAYERS l The Fort Hill Players have created their own "Wonderland" through speech work this year. An extended study of plays, viewed from all angles, has enabled them to develop more vivid imaginations, ct boon to a happy life. Sponsored by dramatic director, Miss Gerardine Pritchard. and ruled by president, Martha Lee Campbell, vice-president. Bill Taylor, secretary, Ioy Wilson, treasurer, Robert Tomsko, pub- licity manager, Dorothy Coleman, and war bond chairman, Maryjane Edwards, the Fort Hill Players have developed in extra-curricular life. Their three-act comedy, "Papa Is All," is considered one of the outstanding presentations of the Port Hill stage.

' I THE THESPIANS Like the Walrus and the Carpenter, Thespian Troupe 230 of the National Thespian Dramatic Honor Society have put to use their talents for acting. For their efforts, the characters from the story of "Alice In Wonderland" got on oyster feed. Troupe members receive nationwide recognition, as a result of affiliation with troupes throughout the United States. Under the direction of Miss Gerardine Pritchard, sponsor, and the officers-Lois Hanks, Ioy Wilson, and Robert Tomsko, the group has now earned its "place in the sun." The observance of Drama Week in Cumberland was sponsored by the Thespians, who also presented several programs and participated in various activities. The Walrus and the Carpenter were successful in their ven- ture, and may the Thespians receive the same blessing. M rris. C. Crawford, H. Cookerly.

Selected for head ushers this year were Elaine Partleton and Ray Pulfinberger, both juniors. This group ushers at all school assemblies. They also ushered at the Thanksgiving Day game, "Papa Is All," the Senior Class play "Murder Mansion" and worked the check room at the concerts. Enrolled in the ushers this year are forty-eight studentsg twenty-four are seniors, six- teen are juniors and eight are sophomores. At the end of this year the ushers plan to have some sort ol social entertainment to wind up the year's activities. This group deserves much praise and credit tor their outstanding work this year.

One of the outstanding features of the orchestra is the cooperation and understanding between the director and the directed, simply meaning that each knows exactly what to do and when to do it. Some of the engagements filled this year were: the Navy Day program, October 27, the Lions Club Christmas party on December 17, the Commencement exercises Ianuary 24, Y. M. C. A. banquet on Ianuary 23, a concert at Grace Methodist Auditorium on February 10, and numerous assemblies. For "Papa Is All," they played a group of Dutch waltzes in keeping with the setting of the play. Hours of practice are required to blend each instrument with the others to achieve the harmonic balance so pleasing to the ear. This group, though faithful and hard working, is probably the least glorified of all the musical organizations and to it, the Sabre offers special tribute. ROW ONE-R. Heisey. E. Lzchliter, O. Turner.

THE BAND Ilgain this year the band under the direction of Miss Pearl Garbrick has striven to im- prove the school through music. Under the leadership of such capable officers as Robert Tomsko, president, Wayne Free- land, vice-president: and Dorothy Cessna, secretary, the band has not only helped the school but our whole community. During the past year they have played at such patriotic gatherings as the bond rallies at the Strand and Maryland theaters. Also on the schedule was Grace M. E. Church and numerous parades. Many long hours were spent by these scarlet and gray clad musicians in practice for the football games. Hours of drilling before each game are required to achieve the perfection shown in the formation of the letters on the football field. RA Mvrrisl We 0- Neil- The band consists of musically inclined individuals that may range from grade seven to the twelfth. For the first time this year schedules were arranged so that all band members had music the first period. Faithfully throughout -the year the color guard and flag bearers along with the majorettes have added color and a militaristic air to all the occasions of the band's appearance. I. Van Meter. R.

At this point Fort Hil1's A Cappella Choir would have fit in 1. very well. From lullabys to lilting lyrics, the A Cappella is tops. ,Since the founding of Fort Hill the choir has furnished the school anfl the community with the best of harmonized songs. ' 'Mis year's A Cappella consisted of about thirty-five mem- bers. Miss Dorothy Sebree was the director and officers were Ann Britt, Presidentg Marilyn Markel, Vice-Presidentp Norma Cole, Secretaryg and librarians, Richard Reiter, Earl Swartz, Lloyd Nor- ris, and Darl Iewell. Highlights of the A Cappella's activities this year were singing Xmas carols at the B. and O. station and par- ticipation in the April Music Festical. Selections sung by the Choir at the music festival were "Bless the Lord, O My Soul"-A Ippolito-Ivanoff, "Czecho Slovakian Dance Song," and "Listen to the Lambs"-Dett. The A Cappella met this year during second period, Wed- nesday, Thursday, and Friday. BOYS, GLEE CLUB AT PIANO-Miss Sebree. ROW ONE-W. Foley. S. Zollncr, W. Taylor, D. Iewell, R. Reiter, R.

The Red Queen told Alice that she would begin her journey through the land as cr pawn, who moves one square at cr time. To become a queen she had to travel clear across the chessboard, to acquire knowledge of the land. It is the purpose of the Iunior Glee Club to teach the boys and girls of the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades the "lay of the land" as far as singing goes. lean Lee Curl, presidentg Charles Hammaker, vice- president, Florine Cover, secretary: Robert Beeche, treasurer, and Rebecca LaFew, Laracco Toole, Althea Ranck, librarians.

This was one of the songs sung by the girls April 21 in the Cumberland Music Festival. The group also sang "What's in the Air Today" and "Chanson de Marie Antoinette" by lacobson.

GIRLS' HI-Y "To create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community, high standards of Christian character." This is the aim of the Girls' Hi-Y, Every activity which they have sponsored has been done with this worth-while motto in mind. The Girls' Hi-Y, a school service club sponsored by the Y. M. C. A., took into its membership this year, girls considered worthy of wearing the organization's emblem. Selected for scholarship and character they met these high standards. Adviser Miss Dorothea Fridinger, and officers Martha Lee Campbell, presidentp Vivian Strieby, vice-presidentg Ruth Ellen Dayton, secretary, Elaine Partleton, treasurer, and Wilma Tomsko. chaplain, have all contributed to the success of this year's Hi-Y Club. Realizing the necessity of good leadership and cooperation. the girls have pulled together to make 1944 a year of happy mem- ories in the organization. ' Hi-Y members began their season of activities early with a riotous initiation, and later, the formal candle service and banquet. With Thanksgiving came the attractive red and white Turkey Day corsages which were sold by the members, and the annual col- lection of baskets for the needy, sponsored in cooperation with the Girls' League. The Yuletide season was brightened by a toy col- lection at school, and a "Little Sister" tea for members of the Girls' League. With a greeting to the New Year, Hi-Y members went "sporty" with a hayride, swimming parties, basketball and bowling leagues. Activities sponsored for the whole student body included a movie, "Between Us Girls," and then a skating party. In May, the girls honored their mothers with a Mother-Daughter banquet. A year of activities was brilliantly climaxed with a gala Spring Dance that fulfilled the fondest hopes and expectations of the Girls' Hi-Y. The Boys' Hi-Y has this year proved its worth as the only boys' service club in the school. Under the active leadership of the ad- viser, Alfred Benna and a staff of officers which varied under the duress of wartime manpower shortage, the club functioned actively in its projects. David Wright, president, entered college and was succeeded by Daniel Chase, vice president. The call to arms was heeded by Charles Barnes, who had been elected vice-president, and Ioe Monteleone and Warren Squires, both of whom held the position of sergeant-at-arms. Other officers elected were Carl Reuschel, vice presidentg Kenneth Hensel, secretary, succeeded by Paul Burleyg Ray Lapp, treasurer: Donald Whiteman, sergeant- at-arms, and Lloyd Norris, chaplain. BOYS' HI-Y Activities of the Boys' Hi-Y for the year of 1944 included the sponsoring of several most enjoyable and successful skating parties, participation in the "Splash" parties under the sponsorship of the Y, and joint promotion of a Spring Dance. A service project, the re- cording of student activities was accomplished, at the request of Mr. Iames Spitznas. In March, a second initiation was held to replace members who were off to war. Mr. Benna was the next to go, and he was honored with a banquet. The Boys' Hi-Y has undergone numerous hardships this year, but they have faced them bravely and continued to build the pres- tige of their name. ROW ONE-H. Chaney, L, Brinkman, I. Pelierzi, D.

Upon seeing her they were extremely rude cmd as they didn't ask her to join them she invited herself. Having been asked to tell a story the sleepy Dormouse began- "I will tell you a story about the "Little Sisters" or the Girls' League. They are called the "Little Sisters" because they are the junior-branch of the Girls' Hi-Y. Their motto is "to serve" and they abide by it every Thanksgiving by giving to the poor, baskets of food.

They are under the cap- y able supervision of Miss Mary Workman. Every month activity is planned such as bowling, skating, and going to church. The officers of this club are president, Elaine Coleg vice president, Rebecca Le Few, secretary, Charlotte Barringerg treasurer, Ieannine Davis: , chaplain, Caroline Ringler. l Soon after concluding his story the Dormouse Went to sleep and Alice Walked off feeling that the "Little Sisters" were really doing their duty. l There is nothing make-believe about the Library Club, for their efforts and tasks are most realistic. This group has elected to help in the various phases of library work, thus performing a valuable service to the school, as well as increasing its own knowledge of books. Library work is opening to the students a new wonderland. They tell us that they can even outrival our Alice of "Wonderland" fame in discovering new and undreamed of things. In their task of shelving books, the workers develop ability to locate anything from a Mad Hatter to a Red Queen in the library. Binding and repairing books is like re- habilitation of real people. The services rendered to the school by the members of the Library Club include duty at the desk as librarian's assistant and offering help and guidance to students who are not so adept in finding their way about the library. This organization functions constantly, but continues to have regular business meet- ings the second Thursday of the month. Under the direction of Miss Gertrude Ranck, school librarian, and officers Helen Blaker, president, Imogene Ryan, vice president: Iona Miller, secretary, Virginia Lee Sittig, treasurerg and Helen Scarlett, Sentinel reporter, the Library Club this year has peered through the magic looking glass and beheld-new heights of achievement.

It was Spanish, spoken by the Spanish Club in room 108. When Alice entered this room, she was greeted by "Como esta usted?" Receiv- ing only a blank stare, the members asked, "No sabe usted el espa11ol,g" Well, then. as you say in English, "How are you?" Alice, of course, answered that she was "very well, thank you." That is, until the meeting began. Then, she discovered that lean Carrick, the "presidente," called the meeting to order in Spanish. The minutes were read in Spanish by the "secre- tario," Virginia Owens. The dues were asked for by Alma Lee Thomas, the "Tesorero," in Spanish. Even the program, under the direction of Ruth Ann Scott, the "vice presi- dente," was in Spanish. The Spanish Club, under the supervision of Warren Shumaker, is one of the new- est clubs oi Fort Hill. Meeting bi-monthly, it has found much enjoyment in the use of Spanish in its functions since its inauguration on October l, 1943. A. Dal, Hager. P. Shatzer. E. Ellis, B. Owens, Mrs. chefs, . essna.

Did you ever wonder where all the attractive posters concerning Courtesy Week, Nutrition Week, and all school programs came from? The answer is the Art Club. Did you ever stop to question where stage settings, motto posters, and book jackets had their beginning? 'I'he answer again is the Art Club. In addition to all these time-taking projects they were busy for some length ot time this spring constructing a memorial plaque in honor of those Fort Hill boys who have given their lives in the service of their country. PROJECTION CREW The difficult problem of providing an efficient visual educational program in our school has been solved by the training of a group of boys who are in- terested in such work. They have become expert in the line of motion picture projection and make it possible for teachers to show movies at any time dur- ing their class schedule. At almost any hour of the day these boys can be seen hurrying through the halls from one classroom or another loaded down with the heavy sound equipment, extension cords and film. Our deepest grati- tude for pleasurable hours spent as the results of the work of this crew. LEFT TO RIGHT-S. Gerson. Scott, F. Light. D S hop. E. Swarr:. I. Lane. R.

It is practically impossible to' conceive of the almost countless hours of work which were spent in preparing the stage for each performance. A small group of boys under the direction of Miss Benson, construct and put in place all necessary scenery, furniture and stage props, arrange lighting effects and supervise the curtain. To them the faculty and students who participate in programs owe a vote of thanks for a difficult task well done. KNEELING-L. Long, W MK H. Wigfield. STANDING-H. Savill C. Kunes. THE LE To the members of the Letter Club who spend many hours after school each week preparing the budget of news that goes monthly to over four hundred service men and women, former Fort Hill students, answering requests, sending birthday greetings, and pre- paring a permanent scrap-book for the school, there comes almost daily an intrinsic reward for service well done. It comes in such messages of appreciation as: "Although I'm in battle-scarred Italy, you give me always a spot back home in my good old schoolf' "Keep those letters coming TTE R.CLUB -you're a great morale-builderg" "I look forward to your letters- it's good to know our friends are with usp" "A little spot in Alaska grows warmer with your friendly messages." To finance the costly undertaking the club sponsors after- school movies to which the school gives loyal support. There are now nineteen members in this highly essential club and the officers are: president, Marian Hardmang vice presi- dent, Elda McCracken, secretary, Betty Klostermang treasurer, Geraldine Nuseg sponsor, Miss Nellie Willison.

Chosen from the commercial students, these boys and girls play a very important behind the scenes role in our school life. All printed forms. surveys, exam- inations, communications from the principal, and general school information come directly from them. Needless to say. the Sabre owes some of them a debt of gratitude for their splendid co-operation whenever the staff has called on them. Special thanks go to Mrs. Lena Clemmer who has worked tirelessly for the past two years to see that the crew functioned properly. SEATED-C. Dolan, V. Hardy, M. A. Brant. STANDING-M. Paxton, B.

Under the careful and expert coaching of Mel "Newt" Henry who took over the reins when Coach Bill Hahn was called to the navy at the conclusion ot the previous school year. the Hilltoppers made splendid progress. With practically no experienced men held over from the preceding year, he developed one of the strongest teams ever to play for our school. This state- ment is wholly proved by the fact that the Sentinels lost only one game during the entire season. The fighting spirit and clean sportsmanship of the aggregation was exemplified by the co-captains, War- ren "Chesty" Squires and Wayne "Cutter" Ansel. The team was not a heavy one. In fact, on the contrary, it was one of the lightest elevens Fort Hill has ever produced. With the combination of a fast but deceiv- ing backtield and a hard hitting line the Sentinels started mowing down opponents right and left. It was at that time the sensational running of "Chesty" Squires, "Bubbles" Whiteman, Dick White, Ray Lapp. "Ace" Iewell, "Puny" Lewis, Ralph Beard, and many others became the talk of the town. However, but for the good Work of Wayne Ansel, Bill McBride, Mike LaGratta, Ed Seibert, Luther Cox, Palmer Sullivan. and "Knute" Zollner, the backfield could not have possibly been as successful. It is here we also Wel- come the opportunity to put in a word of praise for the second string men and all those other members of the squad who when the time came put into the game their best efforts. This year as never before, a great many students did not participate in football-not because of the shortage of equipment or lack of interest, but because they had answered their country's call for a team that never calls time out.

Kathryn Yankie and Ernest Whit- man were the only remaining veterans of a year gone by. Coordination, timing, and spirit are the qualities of a good cheerleader. These students possessed the spirit. Coordination and timing came through long, tire- some hours of practice. These seven students put their talents together as one and as a result Fort Hill had, not only several new cheers, but a group of cheerleaders to be proud of. At each game, regardless of the weather, the cheerleaders were always on hand. At the half of the year we lost two grand fellows to a greater cause, Ernest Whitman and Robert Hamilton. Five remained, but the job was finished well. The cheerleaders traveled to Winchester and Martinsburg, and in gratitude and appreciation, the entire student body rises in silent praise of a job, TIME: Thanksgiving Day with a lot to be thankful for . . . an undefeated season with two defeats over La Salle, stands filled to over-flowing with gay laughing people, sunshine, and bright colored corsagesg bands playing and majorettes stepping briskly down the field, cheerleaders flinging themselves madly through wild contar- tionsp a sense of well-being, yet a presentiment of disaster pervad- ing the air, strains of the Alma Mater and the game is on.

The squad suffered a great deal from the loss of all its tall men at for- ward and center but this disadvantage was counteracted by speed and accurate shooting. Richard McCoy was especially good under the basket on short one-handed shots. "Mac," as he is known by his team- mates and friends has taken an accelerated course this year and is graduating, thus making himself unavailable for next season. Tom Minke, another senior. was highly acclaimed for his shooting and excellent floor play. Center Donald McGill was an important cog in the machine though many opponents were much taller than he, but he was a match for any and all. Guards Donald "Bubbles" Whiteman was excellent on floor work and long shots while Warren Squires, his twin at the guard position, was always clear-headed and quick on breaks for the basket. Other outstanding players were lack Mayo and Tevis Durbin. Mayo was a better than average shot and Durbin made himself notable for a speedy floor game. Nor must we forget the services of the reserve line-up who came to the res- cue more than once during the season. Although the Sentinels did not win all their games, they played good, fast ball and were something to be proud of with their score of eleven wins and ten losses in a twenty- one game schedule.

Hav- ing already crashed Broadway, the play made a hit here with Cumberland for it played before a full house. This story of the Pennsylvania Dutch took place in the kitchen of the Aukamp farmhouse on an evening last May. Papa dominated "Mama," sister and brother with his stub- born tyrannical manner. The climax was reached when son, "lake," rebells and "gets rid of the old man." Then just when everything was going along smoothly for the Au- kamps and Mama had succeeded in getting a telephone, a kitchen sink, and a few other "conweniences," why, Papa returned! Everything Worked out to a happy conclusion, how- ever, and our Alice was able to relax and survey her ten fingernails which Weren't! Peerless performances were given by: Papa .... .....

H, Wigf "11'fuaJw "Murder Mansion," the senior class play, which was produced at 8:00, on April 28, 1944, fulfilled and exceeded all expectations. Different from the usual production here at Fort Hill, it kept all of us in suspense-gripping the edge of our chair and eyeing the fellow beside us with a furtive glance. Br-r-r-r-r! Where's that weird music coming from? "Oh, that's just a couple spirits playing a duet," answers the sage housekeeper, Mary Marley, nonchalantly. When charming young Carlotta Cramer enters the mansion which her dead Uncle Ewing left her, weird happenings occur. Lights go off by themselves, doors slam, furniture moves, queer music is heard, and ghosts appear. Carlotta is almost tempted to leave when she finds that the house is known as "Murder Man- sion," but curiosity and Palmer Keen, an attractive young man, keep her at the mansion until the mystery is finally solved, with a few murders cropping up now and then-mostly now!
