As time turns backward, as time gives us a second look, 1955-1956 at Gaithersburg High School becomes in retrospect no uneventful year. September brought more faces, new faces at the high school. Expanded facilities came into use. New officers filled posts. Clubs bowed for the first time, activities opened for the student body. The curriculum of studies provided greater variety than we had previously known. The Sail On turns the months of the calendar back for you.

The of any year pass quickly when there so many things to do. September, so ago passed quickly. September 12, 1955-a significant date. School opened after a long, sweltering summer. As usual registration seemed interminableg actual classes that day were but brief previews of things to come. Long lines of students entered Gaithersburg for the first time and registered with Mr. William Brennan and Mrs. Betty Fisher. Seventh graders filled the corridorsg upperclass- men appeared outnumbered. Most acclimated easily to the routines of Gaithersburg. MWLJWYZFYZ The fall brought a full Trojan grid schedule. Practices for some were part of the normal autumn day. Friday evening games were a- waited anxiously by many. Publications department sponsored the first dance of the year. Many others followed in, what now seems, quick succession. Schedules brought new classes. We saw, for the first time, new faculty members. Day after Day fell from the calendar, and by the end of October, we felt as if a summer vacation had not intervenedg we had always been here. September and October introduced us to the more than two hundred seventh graders whom we meet in this section of the Sail 012. Focal Points In September, we found the gym taking shape. The focal points for any days work, however, continued to involve that a.m. meeting in the cafeteria or at the main entrance and a hurried trip to the main office. Beforfe Classes Be an Before classes began, the stars and stripes rose on its mastg Gordon Wigle and Don Howard had another urgent an- nouncement to call to our attentiong and absentees of the previous day waited in lines for that necessary admit slip at quarter of nine. in , ts i Alley Asbury Atwell Auvil 1 s it i :Ma li tile B if t .,," - - 1-5: me ,,' ,, Blalock Blankenship Blood Blum It t ,- - , Baker if VLVV A' Bohrer ,il lg ', 2 sg? if k Barron Beall , s fggfjg t Hu' -,' 1 lk an-5 A, in Y ni Briggs H.

Not spectacular in wins, the season provided individual players and fans out- standing contests of excitement, For the first time in Eve seasons G.H.S. overpowered archrival R.M.H.S. Outstanding play by Bob Costello attracted much comment in the Rockville game. Bob made a hfty yard run in the Trojans march downfield. Unpre- dictable Warren Schwab made several spectacular plays in the course of the grid season, Ronnie Clark, Carroll Earp, Bump Kephart, Don Howard, Richard Myers, jim Reed, jim Thompson, Guy Briggs, Delmas Foster, Jehu Cover, Russell Rotruck, Sonny Sandison, Roberto Huerta, Gordon Wigle, and jay Watson hit the line as Trojans for their final time. Ronnie Clark, through injury, ended his football career early in the season. Because of county age limit, junior Arthur Huerta played his last game this year. From the Jamboree at Blair to the final game, G.H.S. turned out in droves to support our team. Coming in on activity cards for home games, many students looked forward to the games as an exciting end to the school week. Other students purchased tickets at the gate. Parents and alumni supported the Tro- jans with unusual enthusiasm. Many greeted the games as reunions with former buddies, To add interest to the half-time, our band performed intricate routines and played stirring marching music. Most of all, we remember "Davy Crockett". The pom-pom girls and majorettes went through their inimitable acrobatics at each home game.

Eight weeks of high-spirited excitement became history. The art department, in its meaningful window and bulletin board displays announced Thanks- giving. Songs of prayerful gratitude came from the music rooms. We heard a short, impressive p.a. system program on the harvest festival: a holiday had come. R - E -:le ag Ao .vi ug, , Times rriyetzl After its outstanding successes at grid half-time performances and at the Labor Day and Beth- esda parades, the band now turned its energies to its concert. Early in December the full band and its soloists gave us a concert of lively music. Throughout November and December, the glee clubs sang their "Glory in the Highest" directed toward their Christmas festival of carols. To re-tell the real message of Christ- mas, the glee clubs chanted sacred music. The annual concert of carols brought a large audi- ence to the old gym. And then, 'Christmas had come.

Almost unaware, we found 1956 on our calendars. With the arrival of january 3, we realized Christmas was behind us and more holidays would wait until spring. Daily we anticipated the fall of snow, instead, one morning, we found ice so slick that january 9 became an unexpected vacation. Studies became intensined. After several false alarms, exams were taken by some on january 23, 24, and 25. College bound seniors went to B. C. C. one Saturday for the national Col- lege Board tests which some universities re- quire for admittance. of Winter Basketball rolled into high gear, contest after contest fell from the record to become history. The Trojanettes held their interclass competi- tions which culminated in the basketball sports day. By Washington's birthday, we felt the tired- ness of winter with its bleakness must soon be relieved. Several unseasonal warm days were good antidotes to the winter lag. In these long winter months, we still expected the services from members of the Student Council, the bank, and the school store. We expected them to carry on their service without fanfare. They were our leaders. This January-February section features the stu- dents of the freshman class.

The nursing group assisted in the health suite. They studied simple first aid and visited hospi- tals preparatory to post-high school education. Miss Curling's group studied problems of the field, found time to assist teachers at school, and did some substitute teaching. y , , O a ,a l s i, .n l .V I t ,V i' i , I . ,TV , ,I A : HQ QE I t i f T, H A- Q, a n gp7,r t , pf 7 ,fp , r e r A 4 at - erl' ' A j V W ' tti' X .

Photographic records of some activities of 1955 remind us of events which have so recently occurred. The annual follies brought parents and friends to hear us in our song and dance review. Our vocal and instrumental music de- partments focused their attention toward their spring concerts. Practicing during most of March and April, they presented their pro- grams of light music in May. Balmy days gave us out first slight attacks of spring fever. Because we had so much work to do, we could not give in to this beckoning laxness. Wind and wzziznz Vocational agriculture boys turned their atten- tion to spring planting. Machinery, repaired during the long winter, was ready to turn the earth. Spring vacation coincided with Easter. We were dismissed from March 29 through April 7 - and what a welcome breather this seemed then. In gym, we turned to the new athletic field. Softball, baseball, archery, and track consumed the time of the athletically bent. The athletic field was the focus of our attention as it seethed with activity each clear day. Sophomores dominate the Sail On in its diary of the months of March and April. 38 Curtain time for the big show.

Czwrmiznz Up on Follies Weeks in advance of the March 16 and 17 dates, scriptwriters began the job of organiz- ing ideas for the Follies. ln previous years, the juniors held the reins for the big variety show. This year, talent and ability from all grades were directed to an all-school review. Spending long afternoons, the follies com- mittees sifted numbers and rehearsed. Hour on end sped by as the pianos and recordings issued from rehearsal rooms. Polishing each act for public showing entailed many many hours, many days of many students and teachers. Far into the night, students, parents, and teachers spent hours in planning and sewing costumes, in securing necessary props, and in assembly sets and painting backdrops. Crowds swarmed into the gymg laughter and applause ushered forth-the Follies was a success. Q ,. f ' 5 X ,N Upper Left: Typists, Duley and Wood.
