THE SENIOR CLASS
As we near the end of our school year the
senior class of 1948, amid memories of dramatic
successes, athletic honors, and scholastic achieve-
ments, pauses to summarize the innumerable
events of the final year of our high school career.
Under the able guidance of our class officers:
Fred Bennett, President, Donald McCoy, vice-
presidentg Louella Perdew, secretary, and Rich-
ard Ayers, treasurer, we have reached the peak of
our expectations. However, this was made pos-
sible only through the cooperation of Mrs. Nellie
Hilton, social adviser, Mr. Carl Ritchie, busi-
ness adviser, and Mr. Leon Klompus, and Mr.
James Engle, Sabre advisers.
The members of the class have proven their
intellectual ability. Individual honors were be-
stowed on Donald McCoy for his winning of the
"I Speak for Democracy" contest and Betty Bar-
nett for carrying away first prize in writing the
winning essay for the National Guard.

do not mix, members of our class helped to cap-
ture the City Championship in football and the
WMI League title and City Championship in
The theatrical stage was not unknown to us.
In the annual tournament we placed first for two
consecutive years with members of both winning
casts receiving the best actors crown. On April
9 the presentation of "Life of the Party," under
the skillful directing of Miss Gerardine Pritch-
ard, was acclaimed a hilarious success by a capa-
Early in the fall, plans were formulated for
the Senior Prom and on June 5 the committee's
efforts materialized into what proved to be one of
the outstanding activities of the year.
The curtain rose and fell for the last time on
us as seniors on June 10. We have taken our
final curtain call and now proudly go forth to put
into actions our class motto, "In ourselves, our

The lunior Class
The members of the junior class of 1948, under the guidance of Wann Rey-
nolds, president, George Stevenson, vice-president, Dorothy Triplett, secretary,
Eugene Mason, treasurerg and Miss Hamilton, adviser, have shown promise of
being able leaders as the seniors of 1949.
One of the most exciting days in the life of the juniors was when the class
rings arrived. On this day, most of the students really began to feel the responsi-
bility that was theirs.
As in previous years, the junior class participated in the Annual Play Tourna-
ment. Our play, "My Late Espousecl Saint," although not the winning one, was
very! well presented and Ann Linn took top laurels, giving one of the three best
The annual Junior-Senior Prom was held on April 16, with Jimmy Andrew's
orchestra playing dreamy dance tunes. The music, decorations, refreshments, and
the lovely evening gowns were all perfect.
Rounding out a full schedule on May 27, we gave the seniors some pleasant
memories by presenting them with a Farewell Assembly.
At the close of the year, we, the Juniors of '48 look forward to that position
which will be ours as leaders in scholastic activities next year.

SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS
Left to right: Mary Frances Kennel, Secretary, Roger Craze, President, Lois
Davis, Vice-President, Norma Robosson, Treasurer.
Last year, as freshmen, the sophomores elected Roger Craze, president, Lois
Davis, vice-president, Frances Kennel, secretary, and Norma Robosson, treasurer.
The purpose of this election was to teach students how to vote and how to select
the candidates that are best suited for the positions. After being formally organ-
ized, the class was inactive, preparing for the time when they would become lead-
ers in school activities.
They are looking forward to the day when, as juniors, they will order their
class rings, and really don the cloak of responsibility for their school.
We, the seniors of 1948, extend to you, the seniors of 1950, best wishes for
your future years at Fort Hill.

This organization of sixty members from the three
upper classes is of great service to the school. The mem-
bers stamp out-going books and check cards, and replace
on the shelves the books that have been returned. Besides
assisting other students to End materials which they need,
members do many other jobs to help keep the library run-

The Junior Tri-Hi-Y has endeavored during the past year to plan activities that would bet-
ter outfit the members for their future years at Fort Hill.
The club participated in group church attendance to better understand and interpret re-
ligion. They helped the Tri-Hi-Y collect food for the annual food drive at Thanksgiving, and
they also contributed to the Community Chest, The Red Cross and World Service. The girls
also extended personal service and aid to the deserving and needy children at Christmas.
To learn to better adapt themselves, the Junior Tri-Hi-Y Members met together in the-
ater, splash, skating parties, and other social gatherings.
Their code is:
To build a better world
Ready, I must be
In the place where life doth find me
Holding fast-yet pushing on
Into glorious adventure
You-and I-and God.
This is the standard to which the club has adhered during the year.
The Junior Tri-Hi-Y began an active program early in October with candlelight service
at a formal initiation.
The club has worked diligently with Jane Diclcerhoff as president, Melva Burke as vice-
presidentg and Patty Close as chaplain. They have been ably supervised by Miss Hudson and

As the 1947-48 school year draws to a close, the Girls' Tri-I-Ii-Y looks back with pleasant
memories of a successful year. Proudly they held the title of a service organization, and, by col-
lecting food for Thanksgiving baskets, making scrapbooks for the sick, entertaining the needy
children, they strived "To create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community,
higher standards of Christian character."
Their season of activities began in the latter part of September, when twenty new candi-
dates, who had met the scholastic requirements and the approval of the members, formed a cir-
cle around a camphre at the Constitution Park and were formally initiated into the club.
Dances, hikes, trips to other Tri-Hi-Y clubs, Christmas caroling, sleigh rides, and spon-
soring a basketball team are just a few sam-ples of the variety of activities on their social

The Fort Hill Boys' Hi-Y carried out many useful projects during the school
year. Besides providing moral and scholastic support, the club served in many ways
to better and help the rest of school. The first project carried out was the printing
and distribution of lineups for all home football games. On Thanksgiving Day
twelve-page programs were printed and sold by the members of the club.
Rel: resentatives of the club attended the Older Boys' Conference at Dover,
Delaware, on December 5, 6, and 7, On March 20, delegates from the club attended
a pre-legislative session at College Park, Maryland, and on April 22, 23, and 24 they
traveled to Annapolis to participate in a Youth in Government program.
One of the highlights of the year's activities was the Hi-Y - Faculty game in
which the Hi-Y was defeated. This game is an annual feature of the I-Ii-Y and- is
intended to create a feeling of good-fellowship between the faculty and student
body. The proceeds of the game went to the athletic department to buy a moving

NATIONALO HONOR SOCIETY
One of the highest honors given by this school is that of being selected for
membership in the National Honor Society. Not only high scholastic standing is
needed for membership in this organization, but also qualities of leadership, good
character, and service to Fort Hill. Anyone obtaining this high position may feel
justly proud of himself. l Q
Each year five juniors and an unlimited number of seniors are chosen. The
juniors are automatically in the society for two years.
The National Honor Society as a group does not participate in school alfairs.
But the individual members this year, as in every other year, will do all in their
power to make Fort Hill "a stronger and nobler school."

The Sentinel, Fort Hill's bi-weekly newspaper, has two main objectives. They
are to provide the staH: members with introductive training and experience in the
field of journalism and to bring to the student body, news and incidents of interest.
Numerous improvements were made in the make-up of the paper this year,
including the rearrangement of the feature page, and the addition of various new
In spite of the many difficulties confronting the staff, they have maintained a
high standard of excellence in the editions of the paper.
This year, representatives of the staff and Miss Calemine attended the Colum-
bia Scholastic Press Convention in New York City where the Sentinel was awarded
a first place rating in the 1500 to 2000 student-body class.

duty. Thus in all these ways we will transmit our school to others-greater, better, and more beauti-
ful than it was transmittedto us."

Don Sensabaugh, though plagued by injuries,
has been a valuable player at the fullback post,
being active in running and in passing.
Don has played first-string ball for three years.
He was not able to play in the Thanksgiving Day
Game this year because of a broken collar bone
received in the Hagerstown game.
Serving with Don Sensabaugh as co-captain,
"Jimmy," at right half was a spark to the whole
team. Noted for his bruising type of play,
"Jimmy" was a good runner and passer as well
as kicking the extra points for the Sentinels. It
was in this capacity that "Jimmy" really shined.
By placing 32 extra points over the crossbars, he
broke the city record for extra points which was
held by Don Snyder of Allegany. Snyder had
kicked 29 extra points.
Coach William P. Hahn came to For-t Hill High
School to coach football in 1942. He had a good
season that year losing only to Allegany.
After three years in the Navy, Coach Hahn
returned to Fort Hill in 1946 to become football
and track coach. In 1946 his football squad lost
only to Hagerstown, and his track team won the
Maryland State Championship. In 1947, Coach
Hahn's squad won nine out of ten games. Los-
ing the opener to a strong Washington-Lee team,
they finished the season by copping the City

Girls' Basketball Team
For the first time in many years, a girl's basketball league was formed in
Cumberland. In this league Fort Hill has set a record of which we can be justly
Under the able coaching of Mrs. Henrietta Snyder, our team has gained dis-
tinction for Fort Hill by winning four championships. They won the City, WMI
League, Class A, and District I championships. These titles were won through
hard worlc and practice on the part of each individual on this team.
Athletic organizations, such as this, servc in building strong, healthy minds
and bodies, and teach participants the meaning of good sportsmanship.
Serving as co-captains were Oleta Conway and Clara Hudson. June Clark
acted as manager.
We, of the SABRE, extend to the basketball team a vote of thanks for the
recognition you have brought to our school.

FORT HILL PLAYERS
The Fort Hill Players, under the direction of Miss Helen Smith, reached a
new goal in dramatic achievement during the year. During the regular work-
shop periods, courses on drama in all its phases were conducted.
The success of the Players and their new director was seen in the annual
three-act play, "Dear Ruth," which was presented in December. The one-act play
tournament and the judging of the best actor was a spotlight event on the dramatic
calendar. The May Day festivities honoring the queen and her court were car-
ried through with ia flourish of beauty. The club also assisted in many of the as-
sembly programs' throughout the year.
The officers for 1947-48 were Doris Jean Poorbaugh, presidentg Marybelle
Bageant. vice-presidentg Jean Lee Curl, secretaryg Anna Lee Park, treasurer, and
Jean Allen, publicity manager.

This year, under the able direction' of Miss Annetta Yates, the A Cappella
Choir and Girls' and Boys' Glec Clubs have risen to new heights of achievement
in the field of music. Well-known in Cumberland, the A Cappella Choir is one
of the best choral groups in this section.
Taking an active part in community programs, the choir presented many per-
formances for churches and social groups throughout the city, and, as usual, they
sang Christmas carols at the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad station. Highlighting
a full year of musical entertainment, they took part in the annual county music
festival held here at Fort I-Iill.
In addition to providing pleasant experiences for all who heard them, the
members broadened their own knowledge of music.

The SABRE is proud to present James Manges to
the student body, their overwhelming choice as the
outstanding senior boy. Jim truly deserves this honor,
being as well-known to the younger students as to his
fellow classmates. In his later schools years, he has
taken an active part in football, basketball, and base-
ball. In these sports, Jim has proven to be a capable
and dependable person. His athletic talent has gained
him many honors during his school life, placing his
name among the well-known in Fort Hill's Hall of
The SABRE wishes the best of luck to Jim, a good
athlete and a wonderful fellow.
The SABRE prescnts Colleen Burke as the out-
standing senior girl of the class of '48, Colleen merits
this title because of the active interest she has taken
in all school activities. She has distinguished herself
in a variety of activities, making great use of her
dramatic ability and glowing personality to excel in
the field of dramatics. l-ler natural beauty plus her
pleasing disposition has been sufficient to warrant her
being chosen as May Queen Attendant for four suc-
cessive years. Coleen is also known to all as the peppy
cheerleader who lends excitement to athletic contests.
To Colleen, the SABRE extends best wishes for
many triumphs in her future years as an alumnus of
Fort Hill, class of '48.

Nluch of the success of the Boys and Girls Hi-Y organization depends upon
the ability, leadership, and initiative of their ofiicers. It is the duty of each officer
to carry out his tasks to the utmost. The officers this year have done a truly grand
job, and the members of the clubs can be proud of the students they have selected
to these offices.
A person well-known here on the 'Hilltop for his intellect,
personality, acting ability, and humor, is Don McCoy. His
activities all through school have been well-rounded and
numerous. Don, as a senior, captured well-deserved laurels
for himself and the school when he placed first in the city as
winner of the 'QI Spealc for Democracyn contest. I-le also
brought honor to himself when he tied with two others for
first place in the annual Senior High Play Tournament. An-
other proof of his acting ability was that of being chosen to
portray one of the leads in the Senior Class Play. Don's
name will long be remembered among the great in Fort Hillis
Hall of Fame.

Beauty, intelligence, interest in her fellow students, and belief in fair play are
just a few of the characteristics of our May Queen, June Clark. Well-liked by all,
June has taken a deep interest and pride in all her school work. This pert brunette
with a pleasing personality and a warm smile has taken an active part in school
During her first years at Fort Hill, she was a member of the Library Club and
Girls' League. In her junior year, she took part inthe junior Farewell Assembly.
This year June was a typist for the SENTINEL and for the Commercial Depart-
ment. Always taking an active interest in sports, she was manager of the girl's
championship basketball team. Disproving the theory that brains and beauty do
not mix, June was awarded one of the highest honors given by this school when
she was voted into the National Honor Society.
On a very lovely spring day, amid an impressive array of beauty, June was
crowned Queen of the May by Birdie Lou Kirk, last year's Queen. A delightful pro-
gram was presentecl in honor of Queen June and her court.
We, of the SABRE, take this opportunity to extend to June Clark, May Queen
of 1948, success in future years.
Dean Holding - Manges Kicks
I im Manges
Jim Manges, one of Fort Hill's most outstanding athletes, set a new city record
when he kicked 32 extra points during the Football Season. Jimmie really deserved
the title, "The Toe," with which he was labeled. His unerring aim was a morale
booster to the entire team.
However, Jim did not accept all credit for his success, and praised Milford
Dean, the ball-holder, and the rest of the Sentinel team for their support.
The people of Cumberland showed their appreciation of Jim,s sportsman-
ship and ability by observing "Jimmie Manges Night" at a localtheater. Jim was
honored by the presentation of a gold trophy while the remainder of the squad
was in the audience.
Jim was All-City for two years in football and was also very active in basket-
ball and baseball.
Left to right Louise Lathrum, Betty Shreve, Betty Barnett, james Stemple.
These four students are among those who
have brought special acclaim to Fort Hill
through their literary eH:orts.
Betty Barnett and james Stemple took
first and second prizes, respectively, in che
National Guard Essay Contest and Betty
Shreve and Louise Lathrum took honors in
the National Quiz-Kids Contest. All four
of these students justly deserve the honor
which they have brought to themselves and
In connection with the annual one-act
play tournament Colleen Burke, Ann Linn,
and Don McCoy were chosen as having
given the best performance.
All three gave excellent performances and
meritecl the title of "Best Actor of 1948?
We extend congratulations to the Sentinel editors, Jean Allen and Jimmy
Deetz, under whose guidance the staff was able to make prompt and complete
coverage of news and feature events. Jean and Jimmy held the positions of co-
feature and news editors, respectively, last year thereby proving their working and
Mr. Klompus, Mr. Engle, Sarah Keller, and Norman Evans have worked
faithfully to produce a yearbook that would be an accurate record of the school
year. This took much time and effort on the part of all of them. Norman especially
deserves much credit and recognition for the great piece of work he has clone. He
gave much of his time in the attempt to make this year's SABRE one that will be
of interest to everyone. .
We, the senior class, thank you of the SABRE stall for recording many pleas-
ant memories for us to recall in later years.

Here's Your Future
U. S. Army
Graduation need not mean the end of
your education. Those of you who
choose the U. S. Army or U. S. Air Force
for a career may obtain the equivalent
of two years of college credit by signing
up for extension or correspondence
courses in the United States Armed
As for the graduate interested in a
trade, he will find just what he is look-
ing for in the more than 60 technical
schools of the U. 5. Army and U. S. Air
What makes this academic and techni-
cal schooling so attractive-aside from
the knowledge gained-is that it is abso-
lutely free to anyone enlisting. While
you continue your education, the gov-
ernment pays you a salary higher than
many a civilian scale. It also provides
a chance to visit and study in foreign
countries, while all the time you are be-
coming eligible for retirement after 20
Before you make your final choice of a
career, it would pay you to look into the
wonderful opportunities that are avail-
