This Is Our Uwn
This hand, to tyrants ever sworn the foe,
For freedom only deals the deadly blowg
Then sheaths in calm repose the vengeful blade
For gentle peace in freedom's hallowed shade

We welcome many of them to Fort Hill. " V
We enjoy a certain feeling of security.
We plan for the years ahead.
We have moved from Darkness into Light!
Fifty years ago a man destined to become a teacher, a
leader, a trail-blazer began his life's work. In the long
successful years that followed Mr. O. B. Boughton, the
scholar and gentleman, has given of his wide knowledge,
his unfailing humor, his generous leadership for the ulti-
mate enrichment of the many lives that have touched his.
In the boys and girls, who have received his teaching
and guidance, he has instilled a deep respect for learning,
a keen realization that obligations and privileges go hand
in hand, an avid scientific curiosity about this universe in
which we have a part. To the teachers of Allegany County,
he has long been their champion and trusted counselor,
occupying an esteemed position in their hearts. In his
chosen profession our own "Mr. Chips" has become a truly
great man and is so recognized far beyond the conhnes of
Mr. Boughton began his teaching career as principal of
a two room school in Eckhart, Maryland in 1895. Since that
time he has served as principal of nine of the county schools
and as the assistant superintendent from 1908 until 1912.
He became a member of the Science department of Fort
Hill High School in 1956. Mr. Boughton is chairman of
the Legislative Committee of the Allegany County Teach-
ers' Association, a position which he has held for thirty
years. Through his untiring efforts and zealous leadership
in this capacity he has earned the enviable title, "the friend
of the teacher."
We shall miss the comradeship, the wit, the understand-
ing that Mr. Boughton brought into our midst. We offer
our heartiest congratulations on a job well done. We ex-
tend our sincere good wishes for the many happy days that
Mr. Orble B. Bougbton
The faculty of a school must be keenly aware of the pulsing, seething,
shifting rhythm of world affairs. If the teaching staff is to assist the
students of a school to face a soul-shaking tomorrow with a reserve of calm
courage then that staff must plan carefully to foresee the kind of training
that will be most satisfying in answering the problems of high school boys
The many departments here at Fort Hill are intensely concerned with
freeing young minds of the fear and doubt that they find reflected in the
every day life about them. Toward this end, then, they have set up certain
recommendations that are designed to help each individual pupil clarify
his own thinking.
The social studies department believes that it is necessary to develop
among students the type of scholarship which will arouse within them
recognition of their responsibilities for becoming informed participants
in public affairs in the local, state, and national communities. The mem-
bers of the department feel a need among young people for a more practi-
cal understanding of our heritage. The social studies group further
suggests a program of guidance relative to the many vocational oppor-
tunities in America, particularly in and near Cumberland.
The mathematics department would strive to develop in our pupils
sound habits of thinking as well as sound work habits. They would pro-
vide experiences so that each pupil may arrive at a fair evaluation of self.
They feel too that it must be made possible for every child to have contact
and harmony with reality, an opportunity for increasing self-direction, and
a fair balance between success and failure.
Recognizing that language is a basic instrument in the maintenance of
the democratic way of living, that increasingly free and effective inter-
change of ideas is vital to life in a democracy, and that each person must be
helped to become a happy useful citizen of "one world" rather than of one
country, the teachers of English, in order to effect a sounder future citizen,
recommend that our pupils be encouraged to develop through oral and
written communication increasing power in developing ideas, in interpret-'
ing facts, in solving problems, and in formulating judgments. The English
department through the medium of literature, the radio, the motion
picture, and newspaper would call attention to an increasing recog-
nition of the dignity and worth of all men.
This is a part of the thinking of the Fort Hill High School faculty. We
trust it will pay dividends in terms of personal happiness and confidence.
"With the emergence of peace a greater Fort Hill"
Mr. Victor D. Heisey
Each year the administrative problems of the school take on a new com-
plexity and each year, Mr. Heisey keeps the rhythm of Fort Hill well
attuned. During the course of the day he handles innumerable details and
meets many people. He must make many decisions and decide upon points
of policy. This is truly a man-sized job.
Mr. Ralph W'imer
The dillicult and demanding po-
sition of school secretary is handled
hy Mrs. Kathryn Pafel Wilsrmn.
Kitty, as she is known to all students
of Fort Hill, is more than an efhcient
secretary. She is school spirit per-
sonihed. Kitty is an enthusiastic
follower of all athletic events. Her
loyal support of Fort Hill and the
teams is an inspiration to many of
us. To Hilltoppers past and present
Kitty is the epitome of friendship,
The gentleman who never fails to
say good morning to everyone is our
vice principal, Mr. Ralph Wiiimer.
These words, however, are just the
beginning of another busy day for
him. Mr. Wiilmer has taken over the
tremendous job of attendance at Fort
Hill. He also handles the discipline
cases that arise during the course of
the day. It is through his good judg-
ment and fair procedures in this re-
spect that he has gained the respect
of all of us.

In a democracy there are those individuals who are delegated to repre-
sent the large group. The principal's cabinet is such an organization. The
department chairmen and guidance directors represent the entire teaching
staff at the bi-weekly conferences called by Mr. Heisey.
Among the duties of this group is the formulation of the governing
policies of the school and the planning for the carrying through of all
policy adopted. These people also deal with problems relative to the
methods of teaching. Included in this is the question of tests and the
measurement of the scholastic growth of each pupil. The members of the
cabinet must keep well abreast of current professional literature in order
to interpret to better advantage these difficult days. The welfare of the
student is the subject of much discussion. The problems of school leaders,
as well as those who are in need of correction, are given close attention.
Plans are drawn up and instructions given during cabinet sessions for the
ordering of materials and text books. This in itself is a task of great

In the vast school room that we call the world many of
the former members of the class of 1946 are now enrolled.
From the demanding book of life, they are reading the
latest chapters. We who are privileged to finish our high
school education at this time remember that they too are
Fort Hill High School students. They are not present in
our halls, but they are not absent in our hearts. To those
members of our class who serve in the armed forces of our
country, wherever they may be, we say-God speed!
Our class is infinitely proud to welcome four young
men who have returned from service with the Army and
Navy and who have met the requirements for graduation.
Their spirit of courage and loyalty to their country, their
competency and steadfastness of purpose have encouraged
and heartened all of us.

Fort Hill students will long remember with pride their worthy contributions to
the Wfar Loan Drives. Under the sponsorship of the Fort Hill Players this great
undertaking became a part of our school routine during the war years. Through
the all-out efforts of students and teachers bonds and stamps amounting to
566,218.65 were purchased by the boys and girls of Fort Hill. Pictured above is
the familiar bond booth that for so long has stood in the school lobby. It is with
a feeling of deep satisfaction for a job well done that we acknowledge our Minute
Man flag awarded for outstanding service.
Also pictured above is the school Christmas tree. This tree was decorated by
the senior trigonometry class. The figures of various sizes and shapes, which were
the only ornaments used in decoration, were all made by members of senior trig
classes past and present. The tree was truly a beautiful thing and the delight and
appreciation of the student body with this added touch of the yule spirit was a
Hattering tribute to those who gave of their time and skill.

It is time to balance the books for the last accounting, and yet it seems unreal
that we are the seniors, ready to be graduated. It was such a short time ago, that
fall of '39, when we timidly made our way to Fort Hill, hoping then, only to be able
to steer an accurate course through this awe-inspiring building. We have ex-
perienced life, and have absorbed the events of a great historical period, far beyond
the wildest dream of the most vivid imagination that entered here in September, '39.
But our record is a good one. The ledger of activities has been audited, and the
total experiences reveal creditable achievement. Under the experienced guidance
of Miss Gerardine Pritchard and Mr. Walter Boone, the class officers, early in the
fall outlined and set into operation the program for the year. Following several
business meetings in which the class motto, flower and colors were selected, dues
established, the budget ratified, and caps and gowns approved, the class extended
its activities to provide creative, dramatic, and social opportunities for every
Across the footlights on January 24, talented seniors won first place in the
annual sophomore-junior-senior play tournament, by their inspired presentation of
The Dear Departed. To versatile Betty May, went the honor of best actor.
Gay music, voices vibrant with happiness, soft lights reflecting myriads of
color-April 12-the memorable Senior Prom was here.
March 29. Lights out, a sudden hush, curtain going up-Stage Door had begun.
A capacity audience acclaimed this successful class play so skillfully directed by Miss
Gerardine Pritchard, who was ably assisted by Mrs. Arthur Schliefman, Miss Lillian
Boughton, Mr. Walter Boone and Mr. John Gorman.
With this final proud accomplishment we close the books, yet each senior is
keenly conscious that he carries with him one account that can never be marked
"closed." He knows that with mankind everywhere, he shares the grave trust of
using his knowledge, his ability and his faith toward the building of a peaceful,

The junior Class, slow to organize, forged
ahead at an accelerated tempo as soon as the
organization of the class was complete. The
officers elected for the year were: Don Wimer,
fzresidentf Carl Thompson, vice president: Helen
Adams, setretaryf Esther Twigg, treasurer. Miss
Bernice Alpert was chosen class adviser.
One of the exciting moments in the life of
every junior is that one when class rings arrive.
For many previous weeks we had been selecting,
planning, waiting. The thrill of wearing one's
class ring was worth every minute of the suspense.
We juniors chose the play, "Star Struck," for
our tournament offering. We were not the lucky
winners, but we're willing to bet no other class
presented such an array of fancy and bewildering
costumes, not even the fortunate Seniors.
The junior Prom was just one of those affairs
one can not adequately describe. The music, the
refreshments, the lovely dresses, the enchantment
of it all were perfect.
Finally the time came to present our Farewell
Program for the seniors. Don't ever let anyone
tell you it isn't fun to prepare an assembly pro-
gram. The very thought that this was for our
pals who were to be graduated within a few short
weeks furnished the impetus we needed. Now we
cannot forget that soon the class of l9fi6 will
relinguish the mantle of seigniority and that it
comes to us. It is a thought both frightening and

At the fall election we Sophomores elected
Lawrence Koch, president: Marybelle Bageant,
serretaryx Ronald Catlett, treasurer of our class.
In spite of the fact that we have good student
leadership we have experienced difficulty in weld-
ing our group into the close unit that we are
certain we can be. We have been handicapped
by the lack of a faculty adviser.
Taking stock of ourselves for the year however,
we find that scholastically we were "whizzes,"
athletically we were "on the ball," and socially we
had read Emily Post.
We participated in the annual play tournament
and we feel we gave a splendid performance with
the play, "Now That April's Here."
Tenth grade boys and girls were among the
contenders in all the tournament games sponsored
by the physical education department.
We have no outstanding achievement to record
for the year except that of trying to be a class
loyal to its Alma Mater. We are looking toward
the day we shall be the Junior Class of Fort Hill

High School mt Ahead
Recorded on the following pages are our youngest
classes. Within the heart of each seventh, eighth, ninth
grader burns a fierce loyalty to his school. Capable hands
within these classes are already reaching for the oppor-
tunity to be Fort Hill's future leaders.
This is our junior High School. It is here that boys and
girls learn to know themselves, to find a way, to chart a
course. Here is the proving ground of our future citizens.
There are nine hundred and twenty-nine boys and girls
in the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades. Thirty-four mem-
bers of the faculty contribute to the instruction of these

A government of the students, by the students,
and for the students is an ideal way of expressing
the student government system at Fort Hill. The
form of student government which is practiced in
our school is very much like that of our Federal
The Student Council is organized, in ac-
cordance with its constitution, into three parts.
The functions of these divisions are similar to
those of the Federal Government's legislative,
executive, and judiciary departments.
The student legislature consists of two houses,
the Senate and the House of Representatives.
The Senate or the upper house is made up of the
representatives from the senior high home rooms.
The House of Representatives being the lower
house, consists of the representatives from the
seventh, eighth, and ninth grades. The meetings
of the Senate are conducted by the cabinet mem-

bers while the House has a separate set of oflicers.
A measure must pass both houses before it be-
comes a law. Both houses meet in separate
The second division is the executive branch.
Under this division comes the student elected
cabinet officers. The cabinet officers are made up
of four seniors who are the president and the
department heads and three juniors. The othcers
are: President, Harold Bishop: Vice President,
and Public Relations Offer, Calvin Mahaneyg
Serretary, Sadie Maclntoshg Treas1n'er, Linn
Sheetzg Department of Industry, Phyllis Burley:
Department of Traffic, Ethel Wfallisg D6.lI1Il'flll6Ill
of Social Affairs, Lois Mason.
The judiciary division consists of the faculty
advisers. These advisers oversee the work of the
students and guide them toward higher standards
of student government. The advisers are: Mr.
Robert Morris, General Head: Miss Lillian Myers,
P. Burley, S. Maclntosh, L. Mason, lf.

Department o Industry: Miss Alverda Ford,
Department o Tragic, and Mrs. Nellie Hilton,

The president conducts the opening exercises at
assemblies and presides over the Senate and Cabi-
net meetings. The function of ushers and moni-
tors is under the Department of Trallic. The
student elections, the scholastic honor roll, the
trophy cases, the election of the May Queen and
the granting of charters fall within the province of
the Secretary of Industry. The Secretary of Social
Affairs handles the Social Room, the annual May
Day dance and any other Student Council social
Among the major projects of the council this
year were: the financing of the Faculty Follies,
the purchasing of a new directory for the school
lobby, arranging for the annual carrying on of the
general elections for class officers through out the
senior high school.
The efforts of the Student Council have pro-
duced a highly successful year. Their accomplish-
ments speak for themselves. As a member of the
National Association of Student Councils the Fort
Hill group rates nationally. The aims and pur-
poses of the organization can be better understood
after examining the Student Council Creed. "We
shall never bring disgrace to our school by any act
of dishonesty or cowardice. We will fight for
the ideals and cherish the things of our school,
both singly and together. We shall respect and
obey the schoo1's laws. We will strive unceasingly
to arouse the students' sense of scholastic duty.
Thus in all these ways we will transmit our school
to others, greater, better and more beautiful than
it was transmitted to us."

Myers, Mr. Morris.
Ushers and M onitors
To be a Fort Hill monitor is indicative of being
dependable, industrious and well-groomed. These
are the character traits that one expects to find in
the boys and girls who shoulder the heavy re-
sponsibility of keeping our cafeteria in smooth
running order. This year Miss Alverda Ford, the
adviser of the group, and the monitors have in-
stalled a new order for the home room lunch
groups approaching the cafeteria. We of the
student body have only the highest praise for the

new system and the greatest respect for the effort
and patience displayed in making it work.
Again this year the school ushers have made
things pleasant for us. We cannot imagine com-
ing into the auditorium and not having the sur-
rounding physical conditions of the Hnest. For all
evening entertainment and group meetings these
people are on the job. Because of the high
standards of the organization the ushers who
qualify for membership in the group are students
in whom we have the greatest trust and respect.

The Library Club is one of the organizations
that makes the daily routine at Fort Hill function
with smoothness and ease. The members of this
group are behind the scene workers. Sometimes
we forget they are constantly acting for our edu-
cational welfare, but let them cease their custom-
ary course of duty and the snarls become apparent.
We are out of gear. The astonishing scope of the
duties of the Library Club members is:
1. To charge books in and out of the library.
2. To card books and replace them on the open
3. To learn the technique of mending books.

The library club is very ably directed by our

assistant librarian, Mrs. Marguerite Deetz. The
oflicers of the club include:

Pictured with Miss Gertrude Ranck, the librari-
an of our School, is Mary Penn Miller. Mary
Penn, who is one of the most capable and efficient
members of the Library Club, is also a member of
the senior class. It is a real pleasure to ask her
help in finding a book, because with the book
comes that cheerful friendliness that makes friend-
ship with books and people a great adventure.

To the Sentinel and its sponsors go the hearty congratulations of the
class of '46. In spite of the many vicissitudes that beset newspaper publi-
cation at this time the staff has maintained a high standard of excellence in
the bi-weekly editions of the school paper.
The Sentinel staff was organized at the beginning of the school year by
the Rev. Mr. Winters. Under his guidance the first few issues of the paper
were published. Mr. Ralph Luman succeeded Mr. Winters as Sentinel
sponsor and teacher of English. Mr. Luman has proved a capable and
understanding leader as each successive issue of the school paper con-
This year, as in the past years, representative staff members and Mr.
Luman attended the Columbia Press Convention in New York City. At
the meeting the Sentinel was rated with other publications in its class
gathered from all over the country.

Nearing the hilltop in the early mornings of September and October,
we could hear the rapping of drums, the clang of cymbals, the blare of
trumpets, and the stamp of marching feet. This combination of sounds
assured the students of Fort Hill High School that once again their band
was getting into practice for a successful season.
At every football and basketball game, our band was an enthusiastic
part of the cheering section. No football game would have been quite the
big event that it was without the color and spirit contributed by our mu-
sicians. This organization could always be counted upon to furnish enter-
tainment both novel and good.
Our band proved once again that it is a public spirited organization.
The city parades were always better for having our organization in line.
The band, too, has been glad to donate its services to many patriotic rallies.
They had their part in the lovely sunrise Easter service, and they joined
with the other bands in the county in their efforts to make the annual
County Music Festival a success.
The officers of the groups proved to be fine leaders. Many thanks for
the success of our organization this year goes to Calvin Mahaney, presidentg
Linn Sheetz, vice presidentg Jane Nichelson, secretaryy Donald Wimer,

Among the many lovely memories that remain of our school associ-
ations is the remembrance of good music. To this the school orchestra has
contributed in great measure. It is the orchestra upon which we depended
to add musically to our school assembly programs. At all school entertain-
ment we expected to hear these fine musicians.
Individuals of the organization found their services sought after for
programs sponsored by the school and by organized groups of the city.
This year the orchestra, as well as the band, was under the direction of
Mr. Frank Troy. Mr. Troy, a newcomer to Fort Hill, has for many years
been a successful band and orchestra director and a fine musician. We still
remember the pleasure we experienced, when the orchestra directed by Mr.
Troy, played for the first time.
Strong leadership and skilled direction are the prime requisites in build-
ing an outstanding musical organization. The orchestra has been fortunate
in its type of student leadership. The officers elected at the beginning of
the school year were: president, Calvin Mahaneyg vice president, Linn
Sheetz, secretary, Delores Riggs, treasurer, Donald Wimer.
Long will we remember our own orchestra as it would begin to play
the best theme song of them all, "How we love thee Fort Hill High School."

"Music like a curve of gold" might well be the motto
of this group of singers, for the accomplishments of the
Boys' Glee Club are truly golden. Under the experi-
enced direction of Mrs. Edward Pelling, members of
the Club participated throughout the year in assembly
and community programs and won merited acclaim for
their presentation of O'Hara's "There Is No Death," in
the Allegany County Music Festival in April.
Early in the fall, the club members planned an in-
tensive activity and study schedule designed to develop
music appreciation, to increase individual and group
skill, and to provide opportunities for the school and
the larger community to share in the enjoyment of good
music. That the goals of the club have been realized
is abundantly clear, and their achievement reflects credit
upon Mrs. Pelling and each club member.

The youngest of our Fort Hill musical groups
is the Junior Glee Club. These song birds of
tomorrow are receiving the skilled training of
Mrs. Edward Pelling so that some day in the time
to come they may take their well-earned places in

Answering the poet's appeal to "open our

The Fort Hill Players have had a successful year. Miss Gerardine
Pritchard and the members of the group have contributed generously of
their time and talent, and we are the richer for it.
The Fort Hill Players began their dramatic year with the fine pro-
duction of the "Fighting Littles." This was followed in january with the
annual play tournament. The beautiful May Day activities were planned
and carried through by the players. Many times during the year they have
presented an assembly program. The individual services of the members
are eagerly sought.
However it is in learning the technique of acting and directing, in dis-
covering the attributes of a good speaker, in planning worthwhile enter-
tainment, in recognizing values that the members of the organization have
made their Hnest successes.

Hill Players' Auxiliary: Christine Yeager, clmirmang Ann Mease, vice

Getarzline Pritchard was the faculty adviser.
It is a recognized fact that the dramatic organizations of the school
seem to be ever on the alert for a new idea, a different type of en-
tertainment, an opportunity for self improvement. The Fort Hill Players'
Auxiliary proved this when during the month of February they presented
a series of original radio skits in connection wth cafeteria conduct, written
and supervised by the club members. We remember the aptness and time-
liness of those presentations.
Later in the year the group gave a very interesting and informative
demonstration in the art of stage make up.
The auxiliary is content for the most part to work quietly behind the
scenes, but always ready to extend their valuable service, with which they
are so generous, whenever it is needed.

Character, Scholarship, Leadership, Serv-
ice-these are the ideals of the National
Honor Society. Admission to this organiza-
tion is one of the great honors that can
come to a student of Fort Hill, for it stands
for excellence of achievement, not only in
one line, but in every line of endeavor.
Scholarship alone will not admit a student
to the National Honor Society. To scholar-
ship must be added character, to character,
serviceg and to service, leadership.
The Honor Society of our school or-
ganized formally this year so that it might
take a more active part in school affairs and
consequently become better known to the
entire student body. As a result competition
for membership has been very keen. At the
September election Norma Avers was chosen
president, and Dorothy McCollough, secre-
The high light of the year for the
National Honor Society was the initiation of
new members which took place in the school
auditorium. The traditional ceremony, al-
ways beautiful and simple, was again re-
enacted for the young men and women who
have proved themselves worthy.

Again this year the Fort Hill Boys' Hi-Y
has gone over the top. Through the tireless
efforts of every member the organization has
been able to proudly claim the title of Hi-Y
and be proclaimed a service organization.
The Boys' Hi-Y is affiliated with the
National Hi-Y Council. This Fort Hill or-
ganization maintains an "A" rating in the
National Council. The Hi-Y was repre-
sented by three delegates at the 23rd Older
Boys' Conference held in Hagerstown.
From the detailed list of activities for the
year we are proud to record these few. Pro-
grams were printed and given away free of
charge at all home football games. Book-
markers were sold with all profits going to
the school library, fire marshals especially
assigned to this duty were on the job during
fire drills. Among the social activities were
the regular skating parties and the annual
Hi-Y and Tri-Hi-Y rally and dance.
At the beginning of the year a formal
candle light initiation was held at the
Y. M. C. A. at which time twenty new candi-
dates, who had met the standards of the or-
ganization, were accepted into the Club
Under the sponsorship of the Y. M. C. A.
and working out of Fort Hill the Hi-Y
carried on its activities under the capable
leadership of Mr. Carl Ritchie.
In the seats of leadership were: Lawrence
Dickerhoff, president: Francis Light, vice-
presidenlg Francis Strieby and Calvin Ma-
haney, secretaries: Richard Groves, treasurer.
As Hi-Y Boys of the past as well as the
present go about their daily task, ever before
them will be their creed: "To create, main-
tain, and extend throughout the school and
community, higher standards of Christian
character. To promote clean speech, sports,
scholarship, and living."

"To create, maintain, and extend throughout
the school and community, high standards of
Christian character-" this is the motto that in-
spires the Tri Hi-Y, a service organization of Fort
Hill. Exceptionally active during 1945-46, they
began the year's activities with a new adviser,
Mrs. Helen Russell, who proved herself a very
capable and understanding leader.
For the past two years, the demand for
membership in Hi-Y had been so great, the idea
of organizing a Junior Tri Hi-Y had been under

accordance with the changed set-up. New mem-
bers were inducted at the annual dinner given in
the Fort Hill cafeteria in October. Next in order

a tea was given when the Junior Tri Hi-Y was

The members of the Tri Hi-Y again took

given at the Y. M. C. A. At this dance, Miss
Tri Hi-Y was elected. The winner of the election
was Shirley Burke.
Throughout the year a social program was in

This year for the first time in the history of
Fort Hill a Junior Tri Hi-Y was organized.
The purpose of the founding of this new group
was to make possible an opportunity for more
girls to gain membership in the very worth-
while Hi-Y organizations. The newly-organ-
ized junior group set for themselves the high
ideals that have always motivated the Tri Hi-Y,
namely: to create, to maintain, and to extend
throughout the home, school, and community
high standards of Christian conduct.
Early in the school year thirty-five girls from
the ninth and tenth grades were admitted to
the junior service club. In November the girls
were formally entertained by the Tri Hi-Y and
accepted into full fellowship with them.
During the past year the group has been
striving to find its place here at Fort Hill.
Because of this they have no outstanding ac-
complishments to record. However, the group
has become a well organized unit and is now
ready to take its place among the many older
The junior Tri Hi-Y enjoyed participating
in its group activities, attendance at church,
going bowling and skating, having theatre
parties as an organization, helped them to be-
come better acquainted with each other.
The ofiicers elected for the past year were:
president, Charlotte Barringerg rite president,
Alma Taylor, secretary, Doris jean Poorbaughg
treasurer, Marian Howdyshellg chaplain, Doris
Brown. The officers were accepted by the City
Hi-Y Council into full membership.
The newly-formed service club has had Mrs.
Nellie Hilton as its able adviser during this
initial year of organization.

In the course of the past three years the Letter Club has be-
come one of Fort Hills' most inspiring organizations. As in
the past, so this year again under the leadership of Miss
Nellie Willison the club has continued to be an outstanding
service group. The elected othcers for the year were: Doris
Brinkman, presidentg Gretchen Luethke, vice presidentg Betty
Portmess, .vecretaryg Delores Pennington, treasurerg Marian
Bishop, Address Chairman.
The Letter Club is still the most important organization at
Fort Hill in the opinion of our hundreds of GI Joes. The
members of the club carried a tremendous responsibility dur-
ing the war years. Few indeed were the Fort Hill boys
serving their country who were not cheered by the regular
flow of letters from the school on the hill top. During the
past year this great service has been continued. Fortunately
the mailing list is no longer the lengthy one of the past. The
Letter Club feels, however, that to our Fort Hill boys still in
service whether in the United States or in a foreign country,
messages from us here at school keep the bonds of fellowship

One of the most important and certainly
most active organizations within Fort Hill's
portals is the Mimeograph Crew. They have
printed every test and exam over which
we've slaved from those ballling trig prob-
lems to the solution-defying experiments in
chemistry. Those questionnaires you filled
out, or that letter you took home to your
parents are a few of the "Crew's" many end-
Another daily job is the accurate compi-
lation of the absentee list you see posted
outside every teachers' room. All sorts of
special school bulletins are handed to them
to get ready and this they always do efficien-
tly and quietly.
To this deserving "Crew" and to their
capable adviser, Mrs. Helen Brake, we ex-
tend our heartiest praise and "thank you"
for a demanding job well done.

This year's Sabre Staff has been privileged to
compile the record of a most memorable year.
We, the members of the staff, are intensely aware
of the responsibilities that necessarily come with
the publishing of a school annual, but especially
in this year 1945-46 are we concerned with strik-
ing the right note, with giving you the record you
The theme of the book is a message inspired by
peace. We have waited a long time for the ces-
sation of world-wide hostilities. It has taken
many years to satisfy the gods of war, but now we
move from darkness into light.
It has also been our pleasant task to pay tribute
to a fine teacher, Mr. O. B. Boughton, who is re-
tiring from the teaching profession this year. We
extend the best wishes of the staff to Mr.
Boughton for a happy future.
We have added a word of remembrance of the
Fort Hill boys from our class who are still in our
country's service and one of welcome to those
who are here with us finishing their high school
After reckoning with the law of supply and de-
mand we have made as detailed a record of the
school year here at Fort Hill as is possible.
The staff has been called upon to make certain
changes in the planning and the preparation of
the Sabre. The photography in the annual and
the printing of the books have been entrusted to
new hands. Miss Helen Smith is serving her first
year as faculty adviser to the yearbook staff.
The editor of the 1946 SABRE, Norma Avers,
is a year book veteran. Her previous training has
helped her to be steady and capable in facing the
many problems in connection with the prepa-
ration of the book as well as keen in the many
decisions that only the editor can make. This
year's business manager, Audrey Nixon, has won
the admiration of the staff with her quiet efliciency.
No year book staff consists of two people, how-
ever, the editors, the business staff, the typists,
Miss Smith, the general adviser, and Mr. Walter
Boone, the business adviser have all contributed
immeasurably to the publication of the 1946

placed at the proper angle, every vest was
correctly buttoned, every strand of hair was
neatly combed, every bit of faculty dignity
was safely anchored. But eight o'clock came
and unreality began.
Have you ever seen your biology teacher
suddenly become a coy ballerina, your
English teacher, a determined prima donna,
your physical education coach, a spoiled brat,

On November 30 the Fort Hill Players
once again scored a smash hit with their
interpretation of Caroline Francke's play,
"The Fighting Littles."
This is the story of the misunderstood
younger generation as exemplified by the
son and daughter of the Little household.
The patient Mrs. Little and her irascible
husband, the flirtatious Henriette, and the
forthright Ham Sellers eventually achieve
an understanding of themselves and the
great human equations which they repre-
sent. The fighting Littles with problems
solved become a happy peaceable family.
Hilltoppers turned out en masse for this
play that promised a most enjoyable evening
and needless to say they were not disap-
pointed. The poise and stage presence of
the cast were superior. This together with
the skilled direction of Miss Gerardine
Pritchard produced a finished show.
The stage setting and the lighting effects
achieved by Mrs. Schliefman and the Stage
Crew played an important part in the gener-
al delightful result. The Fort Hill Players
both on the stage and behind the scenes have
indeed added another success to their al-
ready lengthy list with the performance of
"The Fighting Littles."

The annual sophomore-junior-senior play tournament is an event
of the school year long anticipated by the student body. The com-
petition among the participating classes is keen and the desire to
present the winning play is intensely strong.
The tournament is sponsored by the Fort Hill Players. This
group has ruled that the plays entered in competition must be en-
tirely the product of pupil effort. The plays must be chosen by
the pupils and presented in their entirety by pupil directors and
This year the play, "The Dear Departed," presented by the
seniors was awarded the highest rating. The seniors gave an ex-
ceptionally clever portrayal of the grasping relatives of "the
departed." All the roles were character parts and as such called
upon the store of creative skill that these actors possess. Betty
May, a member of this cast, for her splendid performance, was
named the best actress of the tournament.
The juniors, with an all-girl cast, presented the One-aCt play,
"Star-Struck." Excitement and humor prevailed as the players, in
turn, became hysterical over a movie idol, who incidentally, did not
appear in person in the play.
The youngest group of contestants, the sophomores, delighted
the audience with "Now That April's Here," a play that has to do
with the tragedies that befall the romance of a lady of sixteen.
Thus once more the annual play tournament with all its fun
and excitement became history.

Betty May, long recognized as an

Opening the door of the "Footlights Club" and taking the lid off Pandora's box
proved to be the same breath-taking experience for the enthusiastic audience that
witnessed the senior class play March 29 in the school auditorium. This drama by
Ferber and Kauffman and directed by Miss Gerardine Pritchard proved a fitting
climax for the dramatic year.

Youth, beauty, music, dancing-this combination of ideas is
synonymous with May Day. This year lovely Shirley Burke reigned
supreme as Queen of the May. Her attendants included Jean Bible
and Christine Yeager from the senior class. The juniors chose
Jeannine Davis and Birdie Lou Kirk. Sophomore representatives
were Colleen Burke and Marybelle Bageant and from the freshman
class were Jacqueline Fox and Dorothy Triplett.
The Queen and her court were entertained by her loyal Fort
Hill subjects in the best May Day tradition. The fairy-tale theme
predominated throughout the entertainment.
The May Day program was planned and presented by the Fort
Hill Players under the direction of Miss Gerardine Pritchard.
Queen Shirley has been a member of the royal May Court for
the past three years. Her friendliness, effortless charm, and sin-
cerity, have made her one of the school's most popular pupils. Her
scholastic attainments and artistic talent are of that fine quality
that we find in Fort Hill's outstanding students.

Coach Mel Henry's "Big Red Wave" ex-
perienced a highly successful season, win-
ning seven games, losing one, and tying one.
In this, his third coaching year at Fort Hill,
in spite of the fact that the team was con-
stantly hampered by injuries, Coach Henry
always placed an aggressive ball club on the
The Sentinels were favored by a fast back-
field and a hard charging line as they piled
up one hundred seventy-two points while
limiting their opponents to fifty-eight.
The backfield was led by "Baldy" White
and John Brown, two of the fastest backs in
the city. The line smashers in the backfield
were Don Sensabaugh and Medford Nichol-
son. Expert quarterbacking was handed
down by Albert Shaffer.
The line was Hanked by wingmen james
Ziler, Owen Turner, Elmer Freeland, and
George Lapp. Outstanding tackles were
jim Scott and "Tiny" Trieber. The middle
of the line was strengthened by guards Rich-
ard Groves, Melvin O'Neal, and co-captain,
Eddie Siebert. The ball-snapper on the team
was co-captain Bill McBride, who was
skilled in the art of aerial defense. The
dropkicking for extra points was handled
by Freddie Partleton.
Members appearing for the last time on
Fort Hill's gridiron on Thanksgiving Day
were: Albert Shaffer, Richard White, james
Ziler, james Scott, John Brown, Bill Clark,
Richard Clay, Eddie Siebert, Bill McBride,
Freddie Partleton, Melvin O'Neal, Irvin
Manges, Owen Turner, Richard Groves,
james Lewis, Leon Ringler, and Harold
The Sentinels were honored with the plac-
ing of Eddie Siebert, "Baldy" White, Bill
McBride, and Dick Groves on the All-City
team. Eddie Siebert has had this distinction
for the past three years.

The 1945-46 basketball team was one of the
"Hghtingest" aggregations placed on the Sentinel
floor. Although winning no titles the team was
always near the top in the VU. M. I. and City
Coach John Cavanaugh with an inexperienced
squad found a tricky zone defense which bottled
up opponents effectively and won many games.
The Sentinels were noted for their "never die"
attitude and were constantly pulling games out of
the hte in the final seconds of play. Fort Hill,
in this manner, achieved startling upsets over
LaSalle, Keyser, Ridgeley, and Piedmont.
The lack of height coupled with inexperience
cost the Sentinels many hard fought games be-
cause of their inability to control the ball, under
Fort Hill's team while lacking a sensational
player was made up of five boys who could

function smoothly as a group and thus overcome
their opponents by teamwork.
This team was well balanced. It had three
smooth forwards in Iilmer "Lefty" Freeland,
Captain John Brown and Alfred Sidaway. The
pivot post was handled by Don Sensabaugh, a
Sophomore, who pulled more than one game out
of the fire with his overhead shot. Also repre-
senting the Sophomore Class was Milford Dean
who was outstanding as a guard. The Juniors
were represented by Robert "Bub" Fry, another of
our fine guards.
With only three seniors leaving the squad this
year the Sentinels send warning to their op-
ponents that they expect an unusually strong hve.
Seniors who performed for the final time on
the hardwoods of Fort Hill this year were Captain
john Brown, Alfred Sidaway, and Irvin Orndoff.

The 1946 basketball tournament for Fort Hill boys was held early in
March. The games were played for the most part before and after school
with some few taking place during the class periods.
Coach "Bobby" Cavanaugh was in charge of arrangements for this
program. He was assisted by a corps of high school boys who acted as
referees for the various games.
The whole-hearted enthusiasm fostered by intramural basketball
springs from loyalty to one's home-room. It is the sort of program that
has played a conspicuous part in making for good sportsmanship among
our student body and for discovering many fine athletes as they represent
the various home-room sections.
