VICTOR D. 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.

bility enable school routine to

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

principals in the school system,

Mr. Wimer, Vice-Principal: Mrs. Hughes. Dean of Girls.
NOT PICTURED-Miss Miller, Home Economics: Mrs. Blough, Visual

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
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.

Alice had a purpose in her wanderings through Looking-Glass
Land. 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
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
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,

om Smith, David Wright:
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.
To these boys especially we send our best Wishes and the hope
that the 1944 "Sabre" will help them to remember their school days.

The Iunior Class got off to a brilliant start when Darl "Ace" Iewell,
president, Iohn Mertens, vice-president, Elaine Partleton, secretary, and Don
Mason, treasurer, and class advisor, Mrs. Iohn W. 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.
In the "Y" drive a five dollar boy membership was given by the Iunior
Class. The climax of the season's activities was a Senior Farewell Assembly
for the class of 1944 during the later part of May.

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.

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.

THE STUDENT COUNCIL
Every community must have a form of government. 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
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
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

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?" 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
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.

In its eighth year of publication, the Sentinel this year has tried amid
war-time dilficulties to maintain its high journalistic standards. 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. Those making the trip
were Kathryn Yankie, editor, Lois Shriver, associate editorg Evelyn Sommer-
latt, feature editor: Ralph Hilleary, sports editor, Ray Puffinberger, make-
up editorg Shirley Sapp, advertising managerg Bobby Crabtree, circulation
manager, and Mr. Kenny, adviser. It is with pride we announce that at this
conference the "Sentinel' received a First Class rating.

The highest honor which can come to any Fort Hill student
is notification of his election to the National Honor Society, an
organization with such high standards that only a few ever realize
this ambition. 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,
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

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.

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
All out to aid the war effort, the Fort Hill Players sponsored
the sale of war bonds and stamps, applying their talents to help
in the war of reality.

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.

Again this year under the supervision of Miss Alverda Ford, the ushers
organized in Room 213 on November 8, 1943, They were selected for three
qualities. First and foremost is dependability. The second quality the appli-
cants were judged on was initiative. Last ot all, but not least of all, appear-
ance. 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. A similar organization is maintained for the junior high school.

The ensemble of stringed, brass, reed and percussion instruments which, when harmoni-
ously combined, make up our orchestra was this year again directed by Miss Pearl Garbrick
of the Music Department.
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.

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.

A CAPPELLA CHOIR
"The White Queen gasped and shut her eyes. "She's tired,
poor thing!" said the Red Queen. "Smooth her hair-lend her
your nightcap-and sing her a soothing lullaby."
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.

JUNIOR GLEE CLUB
Alice discovered that the land on the other side of
the looking-glass was one big chessboard. 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.

"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'
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.
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.
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.

While Alice was Walking through the woods she encountered
a Dormouse, a March Hare, and a Mad Hatter, who were having a
tea party. 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 meet every first and third Thursday of each month.

planned such as bowling, skating, and going to church. The officers
of this club are president, Elaine Coleg vice president, Rebecca

Soon after concluding his story the Dormouse Went to sleep
and Alice Walked off feeling that the "Little Sisters" were really
doing their duty.
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
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

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.

THE ART CLUB
"Little known and little praised" might be the motto for the Art Club.
but similarly it is our policy to give credit where credit is due. 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.
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.

When the auditorium is darkened, the footlights go up, and the curtains
are slowly pulled back, the audience settles itself for another of Fort Hill's
smooth and finished productions. 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
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
-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,

THE MIMEOGRAPH CREW
"lack of all trades" might be applied to the Mimeograph Crew but, cer-
tainly the latter half of the old adage would never be appropriate. 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.

The 1943-44 football season was an outstanding
one for Fort Hill High School. 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.

High School, Lonaconing, Maryland. In the fall of 1943 he was appointed
football coach at Fort Hill to succeed Bill Hahn. The first person to greet his ,
entrance to the Hill-top was his former mentor, Coach Cavanaugh, who had S, ,

moved along with Pennsylvania Avenue High School when it became Fort ut 'Wi ' ,
In looking over our recordsnwe find that this season ends the sixteenth
one for our own Coach Cavanaugh. During this time he has acquired the
name of being probably the best coach in the vicinity for, always disregarding
the type of material handed him, he has tirelessly, endlessly, and gloriously
set forth the highest standards as a coach and life-long friend of the students.
We are proud to have coaches like Cavanaugh and Henry on our staff
and thankful for the inspiration they have given our school. To them goes our
gratitude for the fine work done by each in his particular domain.
CASEY AWARD-BUBBLES WHITEMAN
Donald "Bubbles" Whiteman well earned the honor bestowed upon him

playing he received a gold pocket watch. This award is given each year to

-And Honor Bestowl
From the student body this year came Virginia Martin, Shirley Sapp,
Ruth Martin, Robert Hamilton, and Warren Norris to fill the empty posi-
tions left by last year's cheerleaders. 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,

It seems to be a custom on the Hill for Coach Cavanaugh
to build an entire first team from the preceding year's second
team and reserves and this year was no exception. 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
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.

The colossal Broadway success, "Papa Is All," was
presented at Fort Hill on December 10, 1943, at 8:15 o'clock
by the Senior Dramatics group, the Fort Hill Players. 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
Everything Worked out to a happy conclusion, how-
ever, and our Alice was able to relax and survey her ten
fingernails which Weren't!

Mama ...... .... M arjorie Dolly
Emma ...... ......... L ois Hanks
lake ...,............ .... R obert Crabtree
Mrs. Yoder ...........,...,,4,,,,. .,,,,,,,,,, I oy Wilson
State Trooper Brendle ............ Hartley Wigfield
The genius behind the scenes directing the play was Miss
Gerardine Pritchard, adviser ot the Fort Hill Players and the
National Thespians Troupe 230. Her little elves were Miss Nellie
Willison, business manager, Miss Veronica Coleman, properties
manager, and Miss Chloris Benson, stage manager.
Congratulations! It was superb!

"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!
