LOCAL HISTORY COLLECTION MARY RILEY STYLES PUBLIC LIBRARY FALLS CHURCH, VIRGINIA THE STAFF OF 1952 “MUSTANG” GEORGE MASON JUNIOR-SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL FALLS CHURCH, VIRGINIA jftreienti the hjhirst aition of e M U s T A N G Gus Mason, President of the Student Body, accepting “ The Mustang ” from Nancy Altfathf.r, Editor , and Roberta McCrary, Lay-Out Editor. Oi-dH n OfflU to The Student Body u P. St oice ersonaiuy rencj tk Organization y This year the Mustang Staff decided to write a short history of our beautiful new high school since this is the first year that the City of Falls Church has had a real high school of its own. Up until 1942 the town of Falls Church had its own school system. At that time the McCand- lish Act was passed by the Virginia State Legislature stating that Falls Church Schools should be transferred back into the County of Fairfax, and at no time in the future, no matter how large it might become, could the schools go back to the City of Falls Church. Then there were only two schools in Falls Church— Madison Elementary and Jefferson High School. Until 1945, Jefferson remained the High School. At that time the County built the Falls Chur ch High School and Jef- ferson was put into use as an Elementary School. In 1948 Falls Church was made a second class city with the right to its own school system. The McCandlish Act was declared unconstitutional by the Virginia State Supreme Court. As soon after that as possible, a school board was appointed by the City Council. Mr. Irvin II. Schmitt was ap- pointed Superintendent of Schools. On November 11, 1949, the citizens of Falls Church showed their faith in the new system by overwhelmingly voting a Bond Issue of $700,000.00 to be used for school construction. As soon as this was passed, the Board employed architects and started an extensive search for school sites. ' The site chosen for the new high school is at West Broad Street and Haycock Road. The plans, drawn by McLeod and Ferrara to fit this site, were given an award at the annual convention of the American Architects Association at Atlantic City. These plans arc now entered in an interna- tional contest in Switzerland. As soon as these plans were approved by the State Department of Education, bids were opened and the contract was awarded to the B J Construction Company. Construction was begun im- mediately. Page 4 “Thompson House’ “Jefferson” Due to the shortage of materials, the High School was not completed in time for the opening of school in the fall of 1951. The School Board therefore used Jefferson to house the 7th, 8th, and 9th grades, and rented the Thompson House at Seven Corners for the 10th and 11th grades. The Seniors were allowed to return to Falls Church High School. The building is now being rushed to completion and we arc looking forward to the opening of the school next fall in the new George Mason Junior-Senior High School.

VIRGINIA OFFICE OF THE TELEPHONE SUPERINTENDENT FALLS CHURCH 9000 March 26, 1952 TO THE FACULTY AND STUDENTS OF GEORGE MASON JUNIOR SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL! Greetings and congratulations to you at George Mason Junior-Senior High School. You have the distinction of being the first student body and faculty of Falls Church ' s new High School. I am proud of the way you have cooperated to start it off so successfully. The achievements of the first year have exceeded all expectations. Inadequate facilities have not kept you from having a fruitful and happy experience. It is fortunate the history of this initial year will be permanently recorded in a year book. The courage to under- take the heavy responsibility of preparing and publishing The Mustang is just one of the many examples of the spirit you have displayed in getting your new school off to a good start. Let us consider the achievements of 1951-52 as pointing the way to improvements in the years to come which will place George Mason among the top schools of the nation. IHS:mc Sincerely yours.

The only points made by an opposing team were in the last game with Remington, the score being 26-2. This is the first season for the Mustangs and will be remembered as an undefeated season. Next year our Mustangs will be playing regular eleven-man football. The basketball season was not as successful as the football season for the Mustangs. As they progressed into the season they met tougher com- petition. Toward the end of the season the Mus- tangs were not clicking as they should have, but the spirit was still there. Not having a gym this year hurt us very much. Look out for the Mus- tangs next year in that new gym. l age 16 BASKETBALL TEAM Start — top row. left to right : L. Llewellyn, J. Yarbrough, J.
