Technical improvements were a regular, bi-monthly publishing schedule, more and better photography reproduction, and perfection of lay-o ut skills. The addition of feature columns. The Shadow, and From Capitol Hill, reflected a variety of student opinion. Issues of the one page Siring after special occasions and a nine-page Christmas issue were also unique to the paper this year. ' 67-68 not only saw the greatest sales vol- ume and most effective LASSO in many years, but formation of a separate Junior High news- paper ROUNDUP. The well-written quarterly sported news stories, pictures, and a Wee Shadow. It was immediately popular with young readers.

Quill and Scroll is the International Honor Society for High School Journalists. Members are selected by publications editors and spon- sors, and the president of the society. Officially, the organization did nothing more than decide upon new members. Individ- ually, however, the staffs made vast improve- ments in school publications. A much improved LASSO was published regularly from journalism class, and, in addition to higher quality stand- ards, MUSTANG increased in size and coverage. Perhaps the most significant change, though, was the storehouse of experience built by both staffs. A variety of talents were put to use, and the problem of “the whole staff gradu- ated” was virtually eliminated. Alice Weber B.A., Chatham College. English I. IV.

The proximity of Arena Stage enabled many field trips and Drama class training overcame a lack of previous experience when the club presented successfully their first 3-act drama, “A Remarkable Incident at Carson Corners”. In February, the department and club hosted “Living Stage ’68”. A series of scenes, Shakespearian to very recent ones, were tied together with pop songs in a “youth and their problems” theme designed to show the ageless problems of growing up. This was followed up with the annual spring 1-act Festival “in the round”. Junior High enthusiasm also sparked Mrs. Bohart’s and Miss McComb’s revival of the Junior Drama Club. Every bit as active as its older counterpart, the Junior Club presented “What, No Santa Claus?” to the elementary schools at Christmas, “The Flood” at an assembly, and a Kabuki (Japanese) play in late spring.

Inductive Method Used In Social Studies Courses Informal classes and lengthy group dis- cussions characterized social studies courses as a part of the department ' s strong emphasis on individual student needs. To accomplish this. Economics, and Ancient and Medieval History electives were added to the curriculum, and documentary materials were used to supplement basic texts. Ex- perimental core English Social Studies classes added strength and depth to the in- ductive teaching method. During the year, a special committee of elementary. Junior High and high school teachers studied the entire system ' s social studies curriculum. This was in preparation for a major revision in coming years. Jerolyn Taylor B.A.. Peabody College.

Mr. James McBlair with colleagues Mr. Greg Williams and Mr. Steve Cymrot, gave students the opportunity to learn through ex- perience rather than from a text book. Divided into two congressional committees. Public Welfare and Appropriations, and repre- senting various members of the Senate, the class considered and defeated an educational subsidy bill early in the year. A six week study of metropolitan problems through four basic approaches, a paper on the problems of hypo- thetical city Rednow, and the annual municipal work shop at City Hall highlighted the course.

The main objective was to earn money for next year’s AFS students. Money was raised through a Work Day, sale of Christmas cards, and contributions. The club also continued to sponsor their monthly speakers from various countries, mostly officials from embassies in Washington. Included among these was ex-Ambassador Mc- Cauley from Ireland, who knew Hitler and was in Germany during the Nazi uprising. “The best AFS assembly put on at George Mason” was sponsored by the IRC. Speakers were AFS students from Costa Rica, Japan, Jim Willcock who spent the summer in France, and our own two AFS students, Santi and Raili, both of whom added humor to the program.

The Math Department was “on the move” in ' 68 when, with five new teachers, it embarked on a program of greater coordination and inter- relationship with other aspects of the curricu- lum. The teachers felt that math was an integral part of all fields, not just science, and sought to make courses more widely applicable. Also started in grades 4-12 was a major program revision to open channels of communi- cation, and in kindergarten through 6th grade, the Minnemast pilot math-science program. These programs seek to present abstract con- cepts through practical application, and will eventually make possible more comprehensive high school courses. In January, the Math Team was also formed as a curricular supplement. Consisting of 20 top Junior and Senior trigonometry and calculus students, the team competed in a Fairfax County league. Although inexperience was a major fac- tor in a losing season, the program will soon upgrade the overall department. Math Team Left lo right; Chris Terman.

Courses especially emphasized labwork. Classes were sixty minutes, and actual ob- servation and conditioning of lab animals or experimentation with ripple tanks and cloud chambers provided valuable experience. The high point of the year was the re- appearance of the Science Fair in early March. Several G.M. winners took honors in District competition also. The Science Club, sponsored by Mr. Mil- ler, was more active this year than in the past. Projects included dissections and “fun” experiments. k: kig - Science Club. Left to right.

And On Modern languages proved popular courses at G.M. this year, with large numbers of inter- nationally minded students making it necessary to add two “part time” language teachers to the department. Both Mr. Smiles and Mrs. Firkin taught basic Spanish and French courses to ac- commodate Junior High requests, and for the first time advanced German courses were offered under Mrs. Corrazzini. The ALM approach remained the principal means of developing language skills in all sec- tions except Latin, but even the “dead language” was very much alive as a branch on Miss Nead- erhouser’s Language Tree.

Their big project, the annual Spanish dinner, was held in early Spring. The Jorge Manrique Chapter of the Spanish Honor Society held beautiful candlelight cere- monies in the fall and spring for new inductees. Interesting speakers, refreshments, and tales of Ecuador highlighted both. Card-playing is a good way to learn a language. 31 French Students See Folk Dancing Troupe Ileana Alim B.A..

Between them, they sponsored the French Exhibition - a collection of French coins, stamps, and cultural items that were displayed in the Library showcase. Constitution Hall was also a well-known endroit for the French students, where they enjoyed performances by singer Charles Aznavour and the French Folk Dancers. The club produced a “love” play for Feb- ruary inductions and was kept busy viewing French plays and movies. The end of the year brought with it the annual Spring Picnic, a guar- anteed good time for all. Karen Corrazzim B.A., Bryn Mawr College. German I. II 33 Home Ec.

And anything was pos- sible in classes that included cooking, sewing, grooming, child care, and interior decorating. Senior sewing classes were exceptionally enjoy- able with the -girls often modeling on Friday what had been a bolt of material on Monday morning. FHA, in cooperation with the Department, sponsored the fashion show and sold refresh- ments at the Electives Fair. They also supplied the teachers with Halloween candy and enter- tained them at the annual Christmas Tea. To raise money, they sold cookbooks. Commercial courses are designed to teach those skills necessary for business and secre- tarial careers. This year, the Business Depart- ment added Shorthand II in an effort to provide a broader background for career students. The proposed auditorium will make V.O.T. (voca- tional office training) possible. 34 Mildred Hardy B.S.. Purdue University. Home Economics 8. I. 11. Sewing. FHA. Senior Class Sponsor. Business Curriculum Serves Many Needs ' -a-,.

Mrs. Diane Farfan and Mr. Robert Dunburg manned the Art Department as students explored various aspects of the visual media. Everything from watercolor to sculpture and commercial lettering to psychedelic art was experimented with in Art I-IV classes. Construction of mo- biles from a variety of new materials and out- door sketching on warm spring and fall days were favorite student activities. The art curriculum is constantly changing in order to meet new fashions, styles, and stu- dent needs. Additions to the library helped broaden the program in 67-68.

Rotunda at Capitol Mixed Chorus consisted of Freshmen through Senior members that met each day in either a morning or afternoon class. The group varied tremendously in both ability and types of music performed. At Christmas, they presented Vivaldi’s “Gloria” in concert; yet sang Broad- way hits and “The Saints Go Marching In” for assemblies. Field trips to the Flermitage and C.P. Cen- ter gave the choir an opportunity to appear publicly before singing in the Senate Rotunda of the Capitol building on April 3. Top choral students made up the Readers’ Ensemble. Although the group met irregularly, they performed at numerous ceremonies, and during Christmas at the Falls Church Women ' s Club. They represent the best of G.M. Choral talent.

Pep rallies swung to “G.M.H. boys,” the Christmas assembly to “Jolly Old Saint Nicholas,” and the streets of Winchester to “Black Jack March” during the group’s an- nual visit to the Apple Blossom Festival. At press time, the group was planning an ex- change concert with a Connecticut high school. The addition of the majorettes as playing members of the band improved the squad. In addition to new uniforms, the girls learned many routines and were featured at nearly every pep rally. Frank Barr B.S., University of Cincinnati: B.S., Davidson College. M.M., Indiana University.

The formation of the Colt Band, accompa- nied by the Junior High Majorettes, was addi- tional evidence of the growing separation of junior and senior high activities. Composed of 7th and 8th graders, the Colts marched and formed the core of the cheering section at JV football games. The 8th and 9th grades also united to form the first choir ever from those two grades. The group braved 7:30 am practices to sing “Jamaica Farewell " and “Go Down the Wishin’ Road " each Tuesday and Thursday. In Febru- ary. several members of the choir represented George Mason at Regional Chorus in Richmond. 42 • : m Sophomore Choir. Left to right. Front row: Wanda Keyser.

Because of more advanced P.E. classes, regular P.E. classes were larger. Mr. Adcock helped ease the load by teaching an afternoon Ninth grade class. Plans for the future include reinstatement of intramurals, a competitive Junior High bas- ketball team, and a grouped program. Mr. Adcock hands out report cards to his ninth grade class. 44 Mable Bradd B.S., Radford College. Girls ' Physical Education 7, 8. 9. 10. Johnny Gambill, Jr. M.A., Middle Tennessee State College.

A class leading George Mason as indi- viduals. “Isolation”, as it was termed, but a quiet dedication to individual projects. Tangible results came in better publications, clubs, and overall unity. Always the few that were dedicated to nothing, but for most a growing knowledge that the responsibility of present achieve- ment rested on their shoulders, and in their footsteps others would walk for years. . .a class that laid the foundations for a new kind of progress. Apprehension. Marking the days ' till June with D.T.G.’s but deep down inside be- ing scared to death. . .free periods. Senior snowmen and mail delivery. . .lunch line cuts, furiously ringing The Bell at games, playing funny tricks in the Library Lobby . . .“What do I want to ask Santa for in the LASSO, anyway?’’. . .elbow-squeezed Senior lunch tables. . . . .Knowing in June you’ll leave your easy-going world. . .wondering what it will be like. 49 I 3 £1 IBRs, ■ ■ JmH Hi Top left: Jonathan Olom, Vice-President; Top right: Brian Dexter, President ; Kneeling left to right: Margaret Hannum, Representative; Bob Shelburne, Treasurer; Seated: Julie Manning, Secretary. 50 Senior Class Myra Albright Tom Altman Nat Ames Jay Ardai Ken Bailey Judy Beitle JoEllen Begle Sue Betters MYRA SUE ALBRIGHT: Dance Committee 2; Choir 1, 2, 3,4; P T.A Music Camp Scholarship 2; Pep Club 2; “South Pacific " 2; LASSO 2; Readers’ Ensemble 3; Variety Show 3; " Oklahoma!” 3 THOMAS LEE ALTMAN NATHANIEL WINGERT AMES: Football 1,2,3, Captain 4; Track 1,2; Key Club 2,3,4; Monogram Club 3,4; Junior Class Vice-President; Variety Show 3; Boys State 3 JOSE LOBO ARDAI JR Key Club 4; Science Club I; Electronics Club 1,2; Sound Crew 2,3,4; MUSTANG Photography Staff 4 KENNETH BAILEY: J.V Football 2.

Gains Recognition At Boys ’ , Girls’ State Each spring several Junior boys and a girl are selected to attend American Legion Boys ' and Girls’ State. This annually conducted program at Radford and William and Mary campuses brings together the top Junior leaders from each Virginia high school for a week of government experience. Climax of the week is election of a State Governor, and Senators to Boys’ and Girls’ Nation in Washington. At Boys’ State in Williamsburg, Kip Hewitt was one of twelve nominees for Boys’ Nation. The following week at Radford, Harriett Stanley became the Nationalist Party nominee for Governor, and was appointed Secretary of the Commonwealth. Nat Ames and Cal Simmons, other Boys ' State del- egates, were officials in their mock cities. This Boys ' and Girls ' Slate delegates, left to right: Cal Simmons, Harriett Stanley, Nat was the first time George Mason students held Ames, Kip Hewitt, high offices at either program.

Seven Study World Problems At War College In early September, seven outstanding Sen- ior Social Studies students were selected to attend National War College lectures at Fort Lesley J. McNair in Washington, D.C. For two weeks, the Seniors heard talks ranging from basic socio-economic theory to advanced theories on the spread of Communism. George Mason was the only high school represented at the seminar. Those attending were David Crane, Tom Edmondson, Kip Hewitt, Jonathan Olom, Vicki Smith, Harriett Stanley, Ann Wood, and Sponsor Mr. Greg Williams. 75 Seniors Pride in Setting Precedents Team Captain Jonathan Olom presents Mr. Brouillette with a set of encyclopedias a- warded the school for winning “It ' s Aca- demic.

Mr. Taw- ney and Mrs. Chisolm . . . endless testing ses- sions . . British Miss Butler, lorries and woolies . . . and our very own Variety Show “On the Farm”. Eighth grade . . . the new wing arrived . . . the tempo increased and held ... a new re- spect, a new discipline . . . locker inspections, and a memorable fire alarm . . . Mr. Dudley, the great Math teacher switch, a hootenanny, a dance with the Vistas, and a LASSO surmise that ’68 “might be a class to watch.” Freshmen ... a class that outdid them all . . . Sadie Hawkins, Freshmen Slave Day, halls covered with “68 top 65” signs . . . and an incredible unity that surprised even our- selves . . . Being able to attend formals, go to dances, and legally get into PTA sockhops . . . Group identities when individuality reigned . . . more emphasis on ‘learning’ when grades were suddenly so important . . . being cited as the “best class in the school.” Gay Sophomore airs . . . Wondering what happened to last year’s class spirit, but school spirit for an almost State Championship Bas- ketball team made up for it . . . biology, the last year of gym, “a narrative a day”, an easy honor roll . . . Saddle shoes raged, and poor boy sweaters were in for the unconcerned Soph- omores in the “We’re No. 1” year. 76 Junior vitality with Harriett once more at the helm ... the first Spaghetti Dinner . . . ‘Christmas on the Seine’ and battling the Senior amazons in . . . basketball? ...

A strong ICC, closer cooperation with the faculty, a growing distinc- tion between Junior and Senior High activities. The first General Tea, only moderately suc- cessful, but the idea is initiated. . .a smashing success with the November Electives Fair. . . a Student Council that set a fast pace for a school to follow —a school that followed hopefully. . . hopefully became willingly, energetically, and a new idea of Student Government is set. Under- classmen manned donut sales and staffed pub- lications, service clubs thrived; the result being 21 Honor Society inductees. . . .Apathy applying to an obvious few, interest to the working majority. . . . .Organizations that lent order in the con- fusion of change. 79 SCA Initiates Student Square , Exchange , Mosaic Sparked by President Kip Hewitt, the Stu- dent Council shed its “sluggish” reputation by dynamically leading student activities in 67-68. Council projects varied from selling do- nuts during morning hours to drawing long- term plans for the Student Square, and for in- stallation of a school mosaic. In the most suc- cessful attempt yet to breach the perennial “communications gap”. Smoke Signals (the SCA newsletter), SCA announcements and homeroom representatives were adopted. Described by Mr. Brouillette as “the most active, creative, and responsible SCA in my six years at George Mason”, the 67-68 Coun- cil earned that evaluation by promoting en- thusiasm, and setting precedents which will long be followed.

It is made up of all or- ganization presidents, collectively having the power to issue and revoke club charters. Under SCA Vice-President Sally Herb, the ICC held a General Tea in September to famil- iarize students with club offerings, sponsored an Electives Fair for the PTA in November, and granted club charters in December. This year proved the most active in recent ones for the ICC. Typist Debbie McMillen and printer Bob LaBaugh stand by LASSO display at Electives Fair.

Mr. Edmund DuJarnett, a State Department official, spoke on the value of achievement beyond capability, his informality adding a modern touch to the traditional ceremony.

To help create school spirit, they made a new mascot, and sponsored a naming contest re- sulting in “Mustang Sally.” The Club received the ‘Most Active ' rec- ognition from the SCA by collecting for UNICEF, decorating the teachers ' room at Thanksgiving, ushering at numerous school and civic functions, stapling school board letters and polishing trophies. As Christmas ap- proached, they gave a C.P. Christmas party, staffed the Salvation Christmas Bureau.

With a new by-law on meeting and project attend- ance added to the Constitution, member par- ticipation and project attendance was consid- erably increased. Even before school started. Key Clubbers were busy distributing textbooks to classrooms. They served as cashiers at athletic events, collected for UNICEF and ALSAC, and worked with the Keyettes in the Christmas Bureau and on the children ' s Christmas party. In the spring they sponsored a car rally with neighboring Key Clubs. The Key Club is the high school students ' division of Kiwanis. Calvert Simmons and Mr. Greg Williams led the Mason Club this year as they served their school and community. 86 Key Club , Keyettes Sponsor Christmas Party Key Clubbers look on at Cerebal Palsy Christmas Party. “Santa " John Jenkins hands out candy.

Hamilton Scholarship Fund, and student teach- ing in three city elementary schools. Dedicated to giving students interest in a teaching career and opportunity “to find out what teaching is really like”, FTA spent two days in the fall and spring observing and teach- ing grade school classes. Mrs. Swire, sponsor of FTA this year, accompanied four members to Richmond for the convention in December.

Deadlines came and went bringing with them days of frantic work and worry. Infinite trips to Hot Shoppes provided all the nourishment needed. Under Harriett ' s leadership and Mrs. Hanley’s gently prodding hand and encouragement, the book be- gan to take shape. Layouts were perfected and copied on final layout sheets; they were perfected some more and recopied on more final layout sheets. Margins were set and copy was typed; the right margins were set and copy was typed again. Deadlines were met and everyone breathed easier. . .until they thought of the next deadline.

Seventh graders still frenzied, still scared, forever being “picked on”. Underclassmen. . .frantic in an unhurried atmosphere. . . .Hysterical hours, slamming lockers, mad dashes to the cafeteria for donuts, .a crazy- dizzy-laughing flash of faces, faces, faces. . . .Homework — busywork — crammed work in the cubbyhole across from Chemistry. Times up, lunch time, gulped food, change moods. . . I’m late!! Whizzzzz. . .oh, the clock was wrong. Eighth graders being “Seniors of the Jun- ior High”, feeling superior. Security in a crowd, looking and acting like all your friends. Now — a Junior High Drama Club and News- paper. Freshmen — high school now — observing other people, often judging from the outside what’s inside. Excited about being “old enough”, blissfully oblivious to college, scholarships, and test scores. Sophomores — old enough to break away from the crowd. . .friends in all grades. . . “Break away? But where would I go?” “Juniors are the best!” in a year of un- ceasing activity. Changing your views, chang ing them back, and letting them be known. Produc- tivity. Endeavoring to be the top — but not being allowed to. . .College — so far away, but April and those months bring a fluttery stomach. Sud- denly, great things come from your friends, all too soon the year is over. A satisfied feeling, a project completed, and “your turn” is here. 95 Madison , Mount Daniel , and T. J. Left to right.

Seventh Grade In they came shouting, giggling, scurrying madly about the annual 7th grade invasion of GM began again September 6. Little boys played, little girls chatted, and all struggled to sit still in the gym balcony while Mr. Brouillette wel- comed them aboard as the Class of ’73. The first few weeks of George Mason passed chaotically lockable lockers, classrooms with- out numbers, P.E. every day, and another round of Virginia History. The class as a whole ad- justed slowly to the high school way of life. In early weeks, the cafeteria was the scene of ele- mentary school games; behavior was an obstacle for SCA donut sales and the 7th grade hall liter- ally crawled with students all day. Under SCA and class sponsor supervision, results came in an orderly, spirited first class meeting. The Class of ' 73 was not content to “just sit back and be 7th graders”. They cooperated with their officers and sponsors to plan a Sadie Hawk- ins Christmas Dance, helped operate the morn- ing lost and found, and cheered on the Colts. 96 Become George Mason Nancy Addison David Berkowitz Kevin Allan Mary Betts Rusty Altman Jim Blankenship Rhonda Animon Pat Blystone Barbara Ardus John Boaz Devra Bailey Mike Boisseau Donna Beck Mark Bolster David Bon Tempo Paul Brucker Elaine Breckwell Keith Bruns Laurie Briggs Diane Bullock Miriam Brooks Frank Canture Debbie Brown Roger Carroll Donna Brown Dan Cavanaugh Jackie Chase Jeff Cronin Scott Childress Linda Crowder Danny Ciaccio Shannon Curry Bruce Clendenin Stephany Curtis Neale Coates Mary Cottingham Ernest Davis Anne Dexter Seventh graders write narratives in Mrs. Jenkin ' s English class.

Since the only planned class projects were the three dances, the energetic Eighth Graders looked elsewhere for things to do. They served as the welcoming committee for the Seventh Grade, sold donuts for the S.C.A., and put up a “Happy Thanksgiving " bulletin board. Eighth grade girls were enthusiastic members of Pep Club while boys sparked the J.V. football team. The Class of ' 72 led the Junior High Dramatics Club in its first year of ex- istence since 1962. As the year closed, class pride rose with the election of an S.C.A. Vice-President of the Junior High. In a mood of confi- dence, the class anticipates the changes coming their first year of high school.

Ninth grade girls organized many spirit projects, boys gained valuable experience through sports parti- cipation, and Freshmen made up sizeable segments of the Drama Club, Choir, and Band. Freshman girls formed the core of their Powderpuff football team, and although participation was not ex- tensive in planning their sock hop. Purple Haze, they netted a $100 profit. The class found it difficult adjusting to the many demands of the Freshman year, but capable leadership and good planning made class projects successful.

How- ever. by adding the Christmas Dance and a Powderpuff game to their scheduled list of activities, plus new ideas like Sopho- more Sucker Day, Clarence-Clean Up projects, and their Sock- hop, Up, Up, and Away, the class of ’70 broke the inactive tra- dition. October marked the first class meeting with President Col- leen Lynch announcing yearly plans, and Mr. Brouillette evalu- ating class spirit and academic promise. They were told they were “a class of extremes,” and the year was extremely suc- cessful. Class spirit was unmatched, and Sophomores became valuable club and publications members.

From indi- vidual contributions and much class participation, ’69’s “esprit de corps” grew as they barreled successfully through the busiest year of high school. Juniors were everywhere at once; plans for a sock hop and position papers were sandwiched between multitudes of computer tests, and U.S. Civ. or Government, Chemistry or Physics classes. Homework was often neglected, and although grades decreased, knowledge increased. A set of energetic class sponsors counseled the Juniors as they strived to produce the ultimate goal the Prom. Variety Show practices, swollen knuckles from twisting new class rings too many times, and trips to Hot Shoppes and Tops dominated the Spring. 124 Lois Addison Mari Bailey Lynda Brown Paul Chase Junior Class Douglas Albrecht Ron Allan Dianne Alleman James Anderson Caroline Baum Barbara Best David Blake Mary Bloebaum Kristine Boggs Gini Bonnell Rhonda Bost Laura Brandt George Brennan Michele Burns Cindy Bzdek Tony Carroll Randy Champion Dennis Chevalier George Churchill Renee Clinton Mark Comer 125 Kathy Conover Robin Cruise Bob Compher John Cruise Albert Davis George Cotner Fred Crabill Kathleen Crane Becky Livingston entertains Jean Elam, Kathy Conover, and Ann Katen Joan DeBacker Sally Dill Tom Dill Joe Driver Lisa Drummond Jean Elam Anne Ellis Debbie Ferguson Linda Fernald Adrienne Fifer 126 Debbie McMillan and Rae Tanner get their dollar’s worth. . . and more, at the Spaghetti Dinner.

As the Mustangs played James Wood on the football field. Seniors and their parents were in the kitchen concocting sauce, slicing bread, and tossing salad for the four-hundred that soon would enter the candle-lit Italian world they had created. At 4:30 Mr. Howell, head chef, was ready to serve, and for the next four hours busy Senior waiters scurried be- tween the kitchen and rows of tables serving their cus- tomers. Co-chairmen Karen Lucas and Harriett Stanley set tables, searched for missing salad dressing, and man- aged to cope with the usual amount of catastrophes until the last people were served at 8 o ' clock. After an hour and a half of washing dishes and wiping tables, a tired Senior Class left SI 50 richer. Waitress Helen Troy takes orders as Kip Hewitt eyes the camera.

I Homecoming 1967 Kaleidoscope Spirit Week was typically George Mason an effer- vescent week of Monogram Club dummies, spirit post- ers and red and white candy. The Pep Club and dozens of underclassmen worked feverishly all week making signs or handing out bits of red yarn to tie around your finger. Students called “Beat Hornets” down halls and across classrooms trying to be the thirteenth to hail each day’s mystery rooter. The spirit chain grew daily and by Friday reached from the Chem Lab to the Gym lobby. Friday’s Red and White Day and bonfire that night climaxed the week. As wood crackled, exuberant cheer- leaders and football players led “Stomp Herndon” yells while the majorettes twirled fire batons. If Spirit Week was traditional, the dance was far from it. Harvest themes of past years were cast aside for the exciting world of irridescent color of Kaleido- scope. Under the leadership of Sally Herb and Diane Drummond, Homecoming committees planned halftime festivities and rolled crepe paper for the dance. The finishing touches were put on just at game time Satur- day, and a lovely court was presented from shiny con- vertibles at halftime. That night the crowd danced through revolving strobe lights of Kaleidoscope to rock and soul sounds of the Prophets.

Jim Willcock Represents G.M. in France Jim Willcock, GM ' s intrepid ambassador to France, was the first Masonite in three years to leave U.S. borders as an AFS student. For two months last summer he lived with his adopted Gallic family in an industrial town near the Belgian border. His four years of Mason French seem to have served him well. The George Mason Chapter of the Ameri- can Field Service outdid itself this year in pro- viding G.M. with not one, but two exchange stu- dents and sending another abroad. The excited anticipation of meeting Raila Ojala from Fin- land was doubled in August when Venezuelan Santiago Vera arrived. 140 North, South Come Together at G.M. Green-eyed, blonde and Finnish, Raili had typically Nordic reserve on the surface. Her bewildered expression fooled a lot of us, be- cause it invariably preceded a startlingly per- ceptive comment made with wide innocent eyes and deadpan accuracy. Her friendliness to all was as unbounded as our delight at having her here for a wonderful school year. Small, dark and handsome Santi was a gre- garious addition to the student body. Mason ' s genuine Latin-American caballero, he captured Mustang hearts with his lilting accent and ir- repressible wit. Mrs. Rooney’s star Ichabod and a donut lover, his bubbling personality and Americanized ways entertained us all. t 141 Remarkable Incident 9 a Remarkable i Club Players Prove Flexibility The Dramatics Club took a major step in their play production this year in presenting their first 3-act drama. The Remarkable Incident At Carson’s Corner. Under the guidance of Mrs. Carol Hull and Student Director Mary Oltman, new talents were introduced and old ones reapplauded. Behind the scenes, previously inexperienced committee chair- man and crews played their vital roles well. In this tense courtroom drama, circumstances leading to a boy ' s death are examined by a jury of his fellow students. While evidence points to the janitor as having pushed the boy off a fire escape, it soon becomes apparent that, directly or indirectly, several prominent citizens shared the responsibility. While rehearsing incessantly to coordinate the large cast, “take ten” meant a raid on Hot Shoppes Jr. or trying to sandwich in homework. Finally, opening night arrived with its inevitable jitters, last minute script-studying, and fervent hopes for a good performance. The Doctor relaxes with the daily paper while Bill McGinnis dies unseen. A father ' s fatal mistake. Tension mounts when courtroom accusations are hurled. 142 Success On G.M.

With typical Tackney enthusiasm and precision, Priscilla and co-chairman Glenn Harcourt held dozens of meetings and work sessions. Exhausted from weeks of painting, stapling, and glueing, 10th graders staggered to school that Saturday morning to transform the Cafe- teria into Coventry Castle, complete with draw- bridge and stained glass windows. Nerves strained, paint spilled and the windows kept tearing, but the indomitable sophomores per- servered, muttering “Well, it ' ll look all right in the dark.” And it did. The huge, realistically drafty medieval hall, festooned with ivy and running cedar, and illuminated by “moonlight” through the win- dows, was a perfect setting for the royal couple and the beautiful court. A discordant note was sounded when the band took a break following the Queen ' s Dance, but the festive mood prevailed. Coventry Castle by “moonlight. " Left to right; Freshman Attendant.

If going Up, Up. and A way wasn’t enough to make you dizzy, walking into a Purple Haze should have left you shaking. Whether you leaned on the poles and watched, tripped lightly and fantastically around the floor or frantically hunted down paper cups to pour a Coke, sock- hopping proved that there’s more than one way to use a cafeteria for fun and profit.

Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme. Remember me to one who lives there, She once was a true love of mine.” “We ' re going to get an early start this year!” The early start flew by and things started to shape up two days before the dance . . . The final effect was worth all the heart- aches of chairmen Claire Hastie and Fred Cra- bill. Walking in through flowery drapes, the gay colors bedazzled all eyes. The traditional red and white Sweetheart decorations were replaced by bright greens, blues, yellows, and purples. “What is Scarborough Fair anyway?” No one cared. Thousands of paper roses, the eight foot heart, the madras crepe paper, the color- ful center pieces, and the bird cage all some- how blended together and produced a spring- like atmosphere in the middle of bleak February. No one even noticed the cupids sliding off the blinds. All ran smoothly, even the flower girl and the crown bearer danced together! It was a night of surprises and all Juniors were content as they watched George Mason sweethearts dance the night away to the tunes of the Yorkshires. “Fair " goers enjoy a fast number by the Yorkshires. 148 Danny Owen, Crownbearer ; Andrea Dreslin, Flower Girl; 1968 Sweetheart Court, Left to right: Debbie Wiencek, Freshman Attendant; Robin Cruise, Junior Attendant; Libbi Garrison, Maid of Honor; Julie Manning, Queen; Marcia Tabor, Senior Attendant; Suzanne DuPont, Sophomore Attendant. 149 Junior Brawn Subdues Senior “Strategy” Louise Rhodes prepares to use karate to help out teammate Elaine Heeter.

As predicted, Brenda Schumann, Clare Nu- gent and the Jumpin’ Junior Girls downed the Lady DISCIPLES but only after a fight to the end. For one wild and wooly hour, the teams cast aside their lady-like images and abandoned regard for life and limb as they slashed a path towards the net. Crunching fingers accompanied 14 Junior points in the first half, compared to a dismal 6 for the Seniors. “We’re on the move. We’re on the move!” cried the Seniors during a third quarter spurt that brought the score to 15-14. But spirit just didn’t make baskets, and once again ' 68’s femme fatales fell to defeat. The faculty didn’t find the going quite as easy as the Junior girls did. Inspired by Fac- ulty Flora and her eight teachers, the “Older Generation” managed to squeak by the Key Club, 52-48. Blossoming Faculty Flora shows where all the flowers have gone. i i i ij Communication Is Theme of One Acts “Here We Are 99 He • Jock Herndon She Mary Oilman Student Director Meredy Wollenberg “ The Chairs ” Old Woman Rory Me Broom The Old Man Gil Hanke The Orator Craig Medak 53 Invisible People “An Overpraised Season ” Beth . . .

This year the pervading theme was the lack of communication between members of a family, newlyweds, and humanity in general. These sit- uations are illustrated by, “An Overpraised Season”, “Here We Are” and “The Chairs”, respectively. “The Chairs” was an unprecedented ven- ture into the theater of the absurd. The tragic farce concerns an old man who has a message that will save humanity and his hiring of an orator to communicate it to the world. Knowing his information is in go od hands, he and his wife drown themselves, only to have the orator revealed as a mute. Student director Gil Hanke doubled as the old man and did a good job in both capacities, even after he found out Stone- wall Jackson was also entering “The Chairs” in District competition. The comic offering, “Here We Are”, was a dialogue between newly-weds Mary Oltman and Jack Herndon, directed by Meredy Wollen- berg. Their communications gap and the prob- lems that arose from it were an amusing and pointed commentary on human relationships. The effect of changing times on a parent- child relationship is illustrated in “An Over- praised Season”. Directed by Candy Siler and Ralph de Los Reyes, it was a dramatic account of the discrepancy between the morals and values of different generations. Bob and Beth, flirting as usual, in “An Overpraised Season.

Fleet-footed Freshmen managed to fly by the “Lunker " line for 7 points in the first quarter, but Cathy Owen and her brawny bunch soon tied the score. Third quarter passes paid off for both teams, but in their enthusiasm, extra points were botched and members of each team trampled. With two minutes to go, a Lunker rally took them to the enemy ' s 15. A score seemed inevitable, until an Owen to Du- Pont handoff was pounced upon by the delighted Senior captain. The ensuing catfight was too much for any ref; the game ended in a 13-13 tie. Peanuts. Crackerjacks. Popcorn --HIKE! “Fools Rush In.“ “Lunker " Lynch leads ' em on. 154 “Turn Left at the Flashing RED Light?” Flying Ace Rick Coykendall prepares to take off.

The 100 mile course was supposed to take contestants no farther west than Leesburg but differing opinions on whether a flashing light was red or yellow caused 9 cars to end up in Winchester, 4 in West Virginia, and 1 close to the Pennsylvania Turnpike, Key Clubbers stationed at cold, unvisited checkpoints were forced to amuse themselves by playing cards, comparing tales of Friday night’s activities or eating mustard with horse- radish. Only two of the original 7 completed the rally one backwards, and the other manned by two females. “We’re the first in?

Even without winning records, cheerleaders and Pep Clubbers knocked themselves out all year promoting “Mustang Fever.” Football season brought with it wind, cold weather, drooping pom-poms and morale, but Homecoming ' s Spirit Week proved a cure to that problem. The excitement of a new basket- ball league found the stands jam-packed with enthusiastic rooters. The Varsity cheerleaders got new pom-poms to go with new rivals, JV ' ers got to cheer at away games, and the rapport between the two squads transmitted itself to the spectators. Cheerleaders proved catalysts to all school morale, producing noise from the most unexpected places. Pep Club girls proved mass publicity experts by plastering the halls with inumerable posters. 158 Varsity Cheerleaders, back left to right: Cathy Owen. Robin Cruise. Beth DuPont.

After losing to Wakefield, the Mustangs held B-CC to a 1-1 tie. The Wakefield return match was also a tie, but victories over Central and Friends boosted the win tally. The last game against Harker Prep proved to be one of the season ' s most exciting. Harker penetrated GM’s defense more effectively than any team, scoring in the first quarter. Mason retaliated just before halftime, but was scored upon again in the third and fourth quarters. In the closing minutes, the Mustangs rallied, and Jeff Lundy controls the ball with his scored the winning goal to break a 2-2 tie. heel Consisting primarily of Sophomores and Juniors, next season’s squad should prove formidable.

After a slow start, the Cross Country team wound up State IB Champions for the third time in the five years the sport has existed at George Mason. The Harriers ' schedule opened with a dual- meet victory over Mount Vernon, a loss at home to Stonewall Jackson, and three straight victor- ies over Woodbridge. Garfield, and Osbourne. A disappointing fourth in Wakefield’s Invitation- al put a damper on morale. The next two meets, James Wood and Clarke County, were won by three and one points respectively; a dismal third in District seemed to finish the season. Running against the 14 best teams in Vir- ginia at the State meet in Williamsburg, the super-charged MUSTANGS had all seven run- ners in before any other team could claim five. Senior Ted Yeary finished first for the team, sixth in the meet; Captain Bob Strickler fol- lowed Yeary by one second seventh in State.

With injuries putting key starters on the sidelines, the first few games featured young, inexperienced players. This lack of playing time was noticeable. After tying the first game against Loudoun Valley, the Mustangs lost con- secutively to the top three teams in the league: James Wood, Handley, and Clarke County. They finally bounced into the win column with a vic- tory over Loudoun County at Purcelville, but re- turned home to lose to Herndon in this year’s Homecoming game. The team then traveled to Fauquier and spoiled the Falcon ' s Homecoming by beating them 21-0. The final game of the sea- son pitted Mason against the James Monroe Yel- lowjackets. Unable to overcome a 13-0 first half deficit the Mustangs bowed out of the season, losing 27-7. J. V. Survives Losing Season Left to right. Front row: Jacke Warner, David Hooper.

Only Captain Bing Earman and Guard Dennis DeCreny had previous Varsity experience. Playing in their first Monument District season after many years in the Northwest Dis- trict. the Mustangs faced stiff competition. Woodbridge, Osbourn. Gar-Field, and Stonewall Jackson each had strong teams and the Mus- tangs suffered two losses to each. Brentsville provided the only regular season victory. The Mustangs never gave up without a fight. They lost to Woodbridge in a close game there and in an overtime at home. Stonewall Jackson, Gar-Field. Brentsville. and Osbourn were all close, lost in the final minutes. The team showed its true potential in the District Tournament opener as they over- whelmed the third place Stonewall Jackson Raiders, 70-50. The Mustangs then lost a cliff- hanger in the semi-finals to Woodbridge. Prospects look good for next year with five starters returning. One. two. three ... all right!

There were no returning starters, but Jeff Hobson Prett Block, Larry Clendenin, Richard Fauteux, Bof Hobson, Chuck Stickney, Mike Lacy, and David De Creny formed the nucleus of the team which won al of its home games and added two victories away. Theii 7-3 district record was second only to the Gar-Fielc Indians. Their second place finish enabled the team td play Gar-Field in the Junior Varsity Championship game. However, the Baby Mustangs were unable t( cope with the strong Indians. 172 Baby Mustangs Capture Second in District Left to right.

George Mason was fortunate in acquiring Mr. Douglas Miller, a former New York High School State Champion, who devoted his time to developing a great first year team. Although starting late in the season, hard workouts and determination paid off. Competing with three other schools in the District Tournament, George Mason placed first in the 154 lb. weight class, second in 138 and 95 lb. class, third in 112, 120, and 127 and 180 lb. weight class. These wrestlers were given the opportunity to com- pete in the Virginia High School League IB State Championship competition. Out of the twenty-two competing at State, G.M. defeated seven and placed 16th which is excellent for a beginning team. Outstanding achievement is accredited to Kim Champion in taking fourth place in State and second in the District Tournament and Al- bert Davis in placing seventh in State and taking an outstanding first place in District. Bruno San Martin. Fourth in State. Kim Champion, shows how it ' s done.

A vague, interminable period of time, colored by individual thoughts, social transitions, and national occurrences. World events become personal landmarks and fragmented ex- perience a significant whole. At George Mason, it was a year shaped by change . . . change that rocked institutions, sparked stagnant operations; change that shocked, bewildered, overwhelmed . . . and excited. Change that was trivial compared to that on the national scene, but meaningful to those involved. September ... a vibrant beginning. The question of jeans and hair was left to the discretion of the individual, as was the responsibility of behavior. The unconcerned atmosphere sharply contrasted with the controversy across the river and nation . . . The Peaceniks weren’t very peaceful at the Pentagon Homecoming week-end, and once again a Nobel prize was not awarded in Peace. “Series fever " enveloped fans, and as the Mustangs tussled with larger schools in their last Northwest lb Season, Carl Yaztremski and the Red Sox hung on seven games against St. Louis . . . Local election spirit per- vaded while Masonites labored over the first MUSTANG deadline; and a progressive S.C.A. and City dedicated the Student Square. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and snow came and melted . . . bringing the announcement that Defense Chief Mc- Namara would leave his post after seven years . . . and taking over 200 American lives in a Christmas truce broken 34 times. January ’68. America ' s pioneer heart transplant died, but Africa’s Philip Blaiburg continued to improve. O. J. Simpson trounced the Hoosiers in the Rose Bowl, and Eartha Kitt “lunched " with Lady Bird. Students talked in circles about vandalism, as the Administration and Student Council established means of prevention . . . “The Letter” was Number 1 on WEAM . . . Bonnie and Clyde captured area theaters. Odd temperature gyrations ushered in Third Quarter and the North Korean hijacking of the USS Pueblo, and Tet ' s Saigon raid. At home the week-end was the winter ' s brightest as the Mustangs battled number two Woodbridge to an overtime ... In weeks usually consigned to slump, assemblies and field trips dotted the calendar, and a new spirit emerged from the Student Body. If change applied to G.M., upheaval described situa- tions elsewhere. Two more Cabinet members resigned in an election year, Congress debated the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, garbage lay in New York City streets, students protested draft guideline changes, G.M. trampled Stone- wall Jackson in the Tournament opener, teachers struck ' everywhere but here, and March roared in with a blanket of snow . . . melting into 10 memorable April days. . . . President Johnson announced his non-candidacy and a bombing pause. While the U.S. and Hanoi negotiated to open talks, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassi- nated in Memphis and repercussions jolted Washington . . .j Effects were far-reaching Variety Show cancellations, curfews ... a front lawn memorial service . . . contin- uing change . . .
