This first edition of The Fortress has been published
for the benefit of the school and its community. In it
we have tried to capture the atmosphere of the school-
its haspy moments, its frustrations, and its rewards.
Instea of using words to show the life of the school, we
let pictures speak. The picture has not been glorified.
Instead this picture of Fort Hunt shows 1963-64 as we
lived it day by day. In hopes that it will bring to mind
many pleasant memories we, The Fortress Staff, present
this yearbook to you.
There were moments for building
planning and organizing
There were many moments for group instruction
individual instruction and a lot of hard studying
There were moments to pay money f ,yy M W!
to attend social functions
and to be just plain funny.
There were moments to sing
There were moments to hurry

and wait . and wait .. and wait and wait.

As the 1963-64 school year opened, the Juniors were faced with the
many regponsibilities of a new school. We have been, in effect, two
classes, uniors in grade and Seniors in responsibility. Choosing
class leaders was a difficult task, however, we took it in stride. We
ordered class rings, took college boards, and planned for a successful
prom, setting many firsts for the classes to follow. May we always
remember our past endeavors with pride and look forward to our
future-beyond graduation 1965.

The Class of '66 began its first ear at Fort Hunt High School with 313 students
in its ranks. With the election of officers and a Sophomore Council in November, we
started planning a year full of activities. Our first activity was to obtain funds for the
treasury through a paper driveg decal sales followed to supplement our income. This
initial money was used to finance our other activities. Believing that an active year is
beneficial to establishingaclass spirit,we have undertaken a full rogram of activities.
We hope that our participating fully will insure a better rising Jrunior Class.

The Fort Hunt High School Graduating Class of 1967 has em-
barked on a "do-something" high school career. So far, we have
actively participated in many school projects, including: the Magazine
Campaign-in which we are not only led in total subscriptions, but
the two homerooms leading in sales were also from the Freshman
Class, the Intramural Activities-largest number of participants in the
initial Intramural Program at Fort Hunt High School, the Student
Government-through our 9th Grade Council, we have contributed to
the development of the total school program at Fort Hunt.
Despite problems of construction and incomplete facilities, our Class
has had two successful group activities this year: the Ninth Grade
Su erstition Dance on Friday, March 13, 1964, and the Class Picnic.
Q7Vith an eye to the future and with the experience of past per-
formance, the Graduating Class of 1967 should certainly far surpass
the expectations of the resent upper-classmen. Anticipating many
future honors for our Class and fellow students, we are earnestly
looking forward to being the first Graduating Class to have completed
all four years of our high school program at Fort Hunt. With the
assistance of our very patient Class Sponsor, Mrs. Jane Hall, we feel
confident that we shall reach our objectives.

The Provisional Student Government CPSGJ
was the product of the summer work of a Student
Steeringl Committee-24 elected representatives
of the t ree classes that were to enter Fort Hunt
in September. The Steering Committee established
executive committees headed by its members but
made up of interested students, including a Con-
stitutional Committee which wrote the Provisional
Constitution for the Fort Hunt Student Body.
The Provisional Constitution included the Steer-
ing Committee as acpart of the PSG under the
name of the Student ouncil, the executive body.
The Steering Committee's officers became the
officers of the PSG and its committees continued
The PSG was under the executive direction of ,
its officers, Chairman, Vice-Chairman for each
Class, Secretary, and Treasurer, and of its com-
mittees: Activity, Arts and Bulletin Boards, Con-
stitutional, Building and Grounds, Finance, Hos-
pitality, Publications, and Public Relations. The
legislative and more largely representative council
was the Student General Assembly, to which each
homeroom sent a delegation having one vote. The
PSG also established an Activities Council for the
clubs' representation and an Academic Council

for co-ordination of phases of our academic life.
The Administration established a Cafeteria Coun-
cil made up of officers from the PSG and the
classes. The PSG functioned until it had established
the enduring student body organization-the Fort
Hunt Student Co-operative Association.
Among the student government-sponsored ac-
tivities this year were the sale of victory tags for
football games, a successful magazine campaign,
several bake sales and sock hops, and a March
of Dimes Drive. Plans for the future include

Fort Hunt ienefited from the establishment of
a provisional student government for its student
body. From the efforts and goals, the mistakes
and successes of the first year, a foundation was
laid for a strong and rewardin SCA. The stu-
dent life during most of 1963-1924 may not have
been entirely unified, ma not have been ex-
tremely active, but the elbements of unity and
action were realized as the Fort Hunt students
became the Fort Hunt Student Body, able to
call itself a Student Co-operative.
The chief function of
the Activity Council has
been the co-ordination of
the various clubs of the
Once a month the Activ-
ity Council met with rep-
resentatives from each
club to direct the efforts
of the organizations to-
ward a mutual goal. An
essential Kart of the cplans
of the ctivity oun-
cil this year was the
chartering of the clubs.
The goal was finalized
with an impressive cere-
mony giving the rights
of colrlporation within
Fort unt High School
to the clubs. Other plans
for school-wide activities
were made and co-
ordinated at the meet-

The Academic Council was organ-
ized to further promote academic
studies at Fort Hunt High School. It
is an organized student tutoring fpro-
gram made up of representatives rom
each of the honor societies. The Coun-
cil aids those students having trouble
learning and provides a teaching ex-
perience for advanced students. The
Academic Council is also planning
seminar programs for students interest-
ed in certain subject areas.
Wishing to produce a record of the colorful
activities of Fort Hunt's busy and exciting first
gear, the staff of the fortress set about to publish
ort Hunt's first yearbook under the guidance
of Miss Ratzsch and Mr. Robertson.
The business committee began by collecting
the mone necessary to finance this undertaking.
During the s orts seasons, the photographers
were busy ta ing action shots of the various
games. Then the class committee went into action
when the time came for class and faculty pictures
to be sorted. As clubs were formed, the clubs
and organizations staff was kept occupied writing
articles about each group's activities. Bit by bit,
the sections were completed. It was then the job
of the layout committee to assemble the sections,
and gradually the first edition of the fortress
emerged in its present form.

The Front Line
The Front Line staff worked hard this year
to fulfill its purpose by fostering accurate and
modern writing and reporting, by heightening
scholarship and good sportsmanship, by com-
municating directly with all student activities,
and b supplying a forum for student opinions
and idleas. oremost, was the desire to follow
the principles of good journalism. Although the
staff was handicapped by the lack of school
time for newspa er work, many successful ed-
itions were publisgied. Staff members participated
in the annual Columbia Scholastic Press As-
sociation Convention in March at Columbia
University in New York City and in the Southern
Interscholastic Press Association's April con-
vention at Washington and Lee University. Many
long hours of hard work were spent in an attempt
to produce a newspaper of which the entire stu-
dent body could be proud.

Keyette members had a very successful season
of activities during this, their first year of existence.
Major events, recorded in the club's history, in-
cluded the composition of by-laws, acce tance by
Keyette National, and participation in tlge Keyette
National Convention early in April. Members
assisted the Key Club with their fallwoodchopping
project by the contribution of much needed moral
support. Delicate Christmas cards were made and
presented to all faculty members by the Keyette
Club. In celebration of St. Valentine's Day, club
members traveled to St. Elizabeth's Hospital to
present a variety show. Late in March, Easter
lilies were sold by club members in nearby
shopping centers. Supplemented by, several social
functions, the year proved to be oth busy and

"Responsibility to community, school, and self
in accordance with our motto 'We Build"' is the
basic goal of the Ke Club. The members who
are quite active in all, areas of school life, show
unbounded ability and great enthusiasm-two
factors beneficial to the school, community and
the individual member.
The Fort Hunt Chapter became affiliated with
Key Club International in the fall of '63 under
the direction of Mr. George Lyons, sponsor.
To raise funds, the members cut firewood and
sold it throughout the community. With their
sponsoring unit, the Mount Vernon Kiwanis
Club, they sold Christmas trees. They donated
the Christmas tree to the school and along with
the Keyettes took part in a variety show at St.

The Henry J. Hunt Chapter of the National
Honor Society was organized by transfer
members of the National Honor Society and
National Junior Honor Society under the
guidance of Mrs. Watkins. It quickly integrated
its prciposed programs into the aca emic life of
Fort unt by working with the SCA Academic
Council, planning for honor and tutoring pro-
grams and for a scholarship plan, and enlarging
Membership is based upon scholarship, ser-
vice, leadership, and character-as determined
by! what teachers say about an applicant, by
w at the applicant's records revea , and by
what he tells about himself. While sophomores
are eligible for provisional membership, juniors
and seniors are active members. The Mount
Vernon Senior Honor Society officially installed
our chapter on Februar 18, 1964, as the group
was enlarged to 39 members.
The goals of the Honor Society include the
support of the standards for membership, of
honors and seminar programs, and of high goals
in academic life.
French Honor Society
Excellence in the pursuit of knowledge of the French people
and their language is the basic goal of La Societe Honoraire de
Francais. The Societe is characterized by the active interest in
the French language as glenerated by its members.
Upon receiving a c arter from La Societe Honoraire de
Francais, Mmes. Nelson and South developed the idea of such
a societe in their classes. After careful review of past records in
both French and all other subjects, selection was made of the
charter members of the Societe Honoraire de Francais of Fort
Hunt High School. These students were inducted in an im-
pressive ceremony conducted by the sponsors, Mmes. Nelson
and South. It was at this ceremony that the members came to
realize the responsibility which they accepted by becoming
members. In essence they would be ambassadors of France to
the United States.
Future projects of the Societe Honoraire de Francais include
the viewing of French films, discussion in French with people
from France, the attendance of the Societe at speeches given at
the French Embassy, and an attempt to broaden knowledge of
France in a seminar-type pfogram.
Generally, the Societe onoraire de Francais is a broaden-
ing of the horizons of its members in the French language'

German Honor Society
The small core of present German
honor students are laying the founda-
tion for next year's activities. Under
the leadership of Mrs. McKenna, the
club will be a society of honor students
who will study German culture to form-
ulate programs to teach other German
students about German life.
The German Club will be initiated
next year and will be open to any
student studying German. Its purpose
will be to help students understand

only had to have an above-avera e level of
achievement in Spanish, but they has to have a
satisfactory average in all other subjects. Because
of a lack of previously inducted members, the
new initiates took part in the plannin of the

Meeting after school between Se tember and
February, the Fort Hunt Debate Clnub prepared
for the annual tournament under the guidance of
Mr. Bert Cohen, sponsor. The club was accepted
into the Northern Virginia Debate League and
was placed on the District schedule with the other
schools. The national topic for 1964 was, "Re-
solved: Social Security benefits be extended to
include complete medical care."
Preparation started with extemporaneous
sdpeeches about topical subjects and exhibition
ebates b the more experienced members. Drills
were concfiucted on basic procedure and strategy,
and the members learned the art of cross-exarn-
ination through interrogation practice. At the
same time, individual and group research was
done on "Medicare." As the season approached, a
delegation of eight debaters attended the George
Washington University Conference. Fort Hunt
participated in scrimmage debates with tive Fair-
fax and Arlington scnools. Shortly before the first
match, fourteen Fort Hunt gatrons ctiualified as
'udges. During Februaryan March, ort Hunt's
Varsity and Junior Varsity debated at Edison
High, in the Debate Tournament held there.

In the fall a committee of five was named to
take charge of the immediate duties necessary for
the establishment of this organization. At a later
meeting officers were elected, and they promptly
began to formulate the processes of developing a
strong Pep Club.
Due to a late start in most extra-curricular
activities, the Pep Club was somewhat restricted
this year in carrying out all of its plans. Never-
theless, many students worked diligently to pro-
vide decorations and "victory letters" for the
football games and to sponsor "victory weeks."
The club made and sold victory tacgs, provided
stuffed effigies for pep rallies, an in general
helped to instill school spirit which is urgently
needed in a new high school. The Pep Club also
had some bake sales with a different highlight -
selling cakes representative of specific holidays.
The biggest project of the Pep Club this year was
the spring production of our Teacher-Student
"Turkey" Bake Sale the day before Thanksgiving

, This year the Rifle Club has organized itself
into a functioning body composed of twenty
members under the guidance of Mr. Macdonald.
Three officers were elected and a formal con-
stitution was written. The members acquired a
six-point range and adequate insurance to permit
them to fire there weekly. The club is a member
club of the National Rifle Association. Now
that the organization is settled, our sharpshooters
will be on the rowl for competition from rivaling
clubs. The Rige Club eagery awaits these en-
counters in anticipation of establishing a Fort
Hunt tradition of expert marksmanship.
Scientificall minded students compose the
Rocket Club oi, Fort Hunt. By experimenting with
fuels and working on electronic systems, the
members plan to actually launch a rocket in the
spring of 1964. Also slated for the future is the
launching of a camera on a two-stage rocket.

Hoofprints are the mark of the Riding
Club whose main objective is to become a
firmly established part of Fort Hunt. The
club offers opportunities not only to those
experienced riders but also to anyone in-
terested in horses and horsemanship. In
the future the club hopes to sponsor shows
and classes, and they would like to form
an equestrian unit for parades.

The Ski Club was organized from an
idea developed last winter by three Fort

ganized to promote skiing among high
school students. The Ski Club has taken
a trip to Blue Knob Ski Resort in
Pennsylvania and to other ski slopes.

they are learning to knit, sew, and cook. The
members have sold cookbooks, had bake sales,
and plan to have a demonstrator visit the club
to help them with hairstyling. A Mother-Daughter
Banquet in May was the climax of the year's
activities. At that time, officers were installed for

Those students interested in nursing as a
career have banded together to form a club that
helps them gain the experience they will need
as nurses. By working in service projects, the
members are able to observe nursin as acareer.
Most ofthe girls are in the Nurses' Eid program
at local hospitals.
Plans for the year included taking trips to
Junior Village to help with the infants once or
twice a month, taking a home nursing course,
and giving a tea to gain affiliation with other
nurses' organizations in the area.
Future Nurses help in filing and in filling charts.

The Future Teachers of
America was formed this year
by students who plan to be-
come teachers and who desire
to find out more about the
various teaching fields offered
in the United States today.
The members have had bake
sales to raise money, and they
would like to visit N.E.A. in
Washington, D.C., where they
would learn about the various
aspects of the teaching pro-
fession. The members also hope
to hear speakers discuss edu-
cation, and they would like to
visit an elementary class.
This year the Math Club
pursued its interests with a
series of lectures which were
given by the differnt members
on topics such as the abacus
of the Chinese, the con-
tribution of the Hindus to
algebra, and the number sys-
tem of the Mayan Indians.
Club members attended the
exhibition of the projects of

This year, the Fort Hunt High School Sym-
phonic Band has accomplished much in the way
of music and school support. The band pro-
vided a foundation for scnool spirit during the
football games and pep rallies.
Fall gave way to winter and found the band
in concert season. Most of this time was spent
in preparation for the Northern Virginia Band
Festival, held this year at Hammond High School.
It is somewhat a culmination of the musical year.
All high schools in Northern Virginia present
compositions for a rating. The Fort Hunt Band
received an excellent rating on its entries.
One of our goals this year has been to obtain
uniforms. As money is necessary to attain this
end, we have initiated several money making
projects. One of these was a highly successful
candy selling drive.
Under the most capable direction of Mr.
Clair C. Christy, the group of students who'first
formed the band has been transformed into a
vgfell-trained musical addition to Fort Hunt High

The Choral Department of Fort
Hunt has had a very rewarding first
year. Mr. King, the director and
teacher of the Freshmen Chorus,
Boys' Chorus, Treble Choir, Cham-
ber Choir and a theory class, has
taught his students not only the funda-
mental techniques of fine craftsmen-
ship, but also the art of music. The
first formal appearance of the
choruses was at the Christmas Con-
cert, also during Christmas, the choir
sang to the public at Belleview Shop-
ping Center. During the winter
months, the Chamber Choir sang at
The Church ofthe Covenant in Arlin -
ton, and the Bo s' Chorus, Treble
Choir, and Chamger Choirlplerformed
at a student assembly. e Treble
Choir and Boys' Choruses combined,
sang at Fort Belvoir in the Easter
Sunrise Service. Then, three choruses
and five soloists participated in the
annual choral Festival held at Madi-
son High School. To complete the
full calendar, a formal sprixlri con-
cert was given at the end of ay in
the school auditorium for the public.
The year was very successful and they
hope next year will be more so.

With the absence of Senior pla ers to strengthen
them, the Varsity Basketball 'lieam seemed to
falter in some of its toughest competition. Led in
battle by Coach White, the boys showed great
spirit and skill but were not able to overcome such
teams as the Groveton Varsity or Falls Church
Their record is 5-14, but with the return of
most of the players next year, the record should
be much better.

experience, made fewer mistakes, raised their own
score, and kept their opponents' scores down. The

Playing an all-varsity competitive schedule,
Fort Hunt's first baseball team held its ground.
The team, coached by Mr. Colna, was aided by
good pitching and catching as well as having
some members with previous playing experience.
The team played its home games at Wayne-
wood Recreation Area. Because it did not have
a home diamond, and may not have for several
years, the team had to play at a disadvantage.

The Track Team, under the direction ofCoach
Crawley, was a relatively inexperienced squad
this year with only 7 boys who had previous
track experience and 38 with none. However, as
the season progressed, the team learned more
about the sportg and the hopes are that next
year's team will get off to abetter start with more
experienced participants. During this season, the
track at Fort Hunt was completed and with it
avagable for practice next year, the future looks

The chief drive for the first Fort Hunt Girls'
Basketball Team was learning and developing
basic skills, patterns, and movements on the
floor. These skills were to build a strong offensive
team for next year. According to Miss Woolfolk,

for next season.

the team this year, the efforts exerted by all the

game with Groveton where extra innings were
needed for Fort Hunt to gain its first victory.

mostly freshmen and sophomores to complete

Creating school spirit in
the student body of a new
school was the major task
of our first cheerleading
squad. Under the direction
of Miss Duncan and Miss
Woolfolk, the squad worked
toward this goal. During
football season they had a
bonfire at which time they
wore the layers' jerseys,
burned a Rflajor Cin effigy,
of courselj, and danced the
Bunny-Ho . The other pep
rallies held, throughout the
year were quite successful,
especially the one for the
openiiagl of the long-awaited
gym. e squad also helped
to promote school spirit by
promoting a "Victory Week."
Aided greatly by the J .V.
and Freshmen cheering
squads, the cheerleaders
have helped to instill enthu-
siasm in the student body.
Marsha Jarvis, Co-Captain
Jumping and full of spirit were Fort
Hunt's first J.V. and Freshmen squads
of Cheerleaders. In addition to yelling
their teams to victories, their activities
included helping the Varsity group create
school spirit, holding a car-wash, and
making posters to advertise games.
