An assortment of bodies collected indis- criminately-bound to the system whether they like it or not. But liking it. Contributing without thinking of it. Capturing grades for the privilege of independent study, of signing out for lunch. Competing for the success, the satisfaction. Dropping out of the crowd and making new friends, learning new ideas. Each student doing his own thing, inadvertantly or intentionally perpetu- ating the group effort. 3 - Individual involvement rather than apathetic entrapment: the result of a metamorphasis of attitudes and social change. The evolution of the curricu- lum through the reorganization of time, of courses, of subject matter, of meth- ods, caused a trend of intellectual acti- vism. The beginning of an era of shiny paperbacks, seminar discussions, and individual participation— to be heard as well as to hear, and to influence as well as to be influenced. A new spirit of confidence im- planted itself in students as they saw a positive reception awaiting their ideas. The experience of staying after class to debate, resolve, and debate again; being in awe of your capabilities, yet realiz- ing your limitations. The frustration of mind-expansion that creates spaces to be filled. Tomorrow. Students satisfied personal goals by contributing to the school: typing copy in a silent building, competing in a foreign language contest, rehearsing in an empty gym, practicing on a slip- pery field. Today. 4 5 J The student community be- came involved with the civic com- munity. Suddenly the one-way re- lationship of adult-managed ac- tivities changed to a symbiotic agreement, the Youth Council ad- vised the business community, and the School Board responded to the fund raising policy requests of the students. Demonstrations of politi- cal consciousness appeared: in fervant campaigning for candi- dates, and in sincere demonstra- tions against them. No longer content to sit back and watch, individuals invested their time and talents in the city, and appreciated the rewards. Joining the winning team and achieving; rousing forgotten emotions. The renaissance of involvement, bring- ing a new pride, a new game to the stu- dents, to GM: an end to apathy, and a beginning to participation. 7 r rm n i 8 m CURRICULUM A dm inistration 10 English 12 Social Studies 20 Math 24 Science 27 Language 30 Commercial Arts . . . 34 Music 38 P.E 44 Staff 46 9 Administration Plans for New Addition SCHOOL BOARD.

Revolutionary English Program Frees Formerly distinctive as the only six-year required subject, the English Department this year was updated with a new format. Students chose quarterly courses from a range of topics after completing a first-quarter composition course. Silas Marner and Moby Dick were supplemented by The Inferno and Siddhartha. Mind-bending ideas richocheted around classrooms as students ex- plored black power, philosophy, and warfare. The department ' s en- thusiastic teachers inspired stu- dent performances that outshone past accomplishments; term papers became interesting re- search, and third quarter slump disappeared. Valuable experience was gleaned by adapting to the dif- ferent standards of each course. For all concerned, the vivid transformation of the department from formal structure to spon- taneity proved both successful, and inspirational for 1969-70. MILTON DAVIS English Department Chairman.

Apparently the Debate Club had trouble getting its point across to league directors this year as the GAA double-talkers were complete- ly left out of the inter-scholastic debate program. For lack of other opportunities, they resigned them- selves to intra-club debates on Tuesday afternoons. The club, open to all grades, consisted of Seniors, Juniors, and Eighth Graders, all of whom did justice to topics as controversial as " The Draft " and " Criminal Investigation Proce- dures. " This year of practice, as well as Mr. Menzer ' s excellent coaching, will help in producing some smooth talkers who will be heard from next year in League debates. Debate Club.

Basically drawn from the Crea- tive Writing Class, the Staff has reached out to enfold the cream of the creative writing crop. Most of the work was done in class periods throughout the third quarter. After a brief comic attempt to rename the magazine, the staff settled down to the hard work of reading, editing, laying-out, re- editing, re. ... A mammoth quantity of material was con- sidered for publication, ranging from film scripts to short stories to poetry, all typed in triplicate, at least. Editor Glenn Harcourt, and assistant George Churchill worked closely with Mrs. Rodin in mak- ing decisions. Phil Jones created a beautiful blank cover, and an even more striking title page. While TEMPO may not be an " Evergreen Review, " it is at least an accurate barometer of student creativity. TEMPO. From Left, Seated: Mrs. Rodin, Sponsor; Glenn Harcourt, Editor; Chuck Holzhauer.

With Strings attached at ap- propriate intervals, the LASSO kept GM informed of the latest in the high school community. A mid-year change of format signalled an equally effective change in content. It began the year as a single sheet publication with typical sports and feature stories. By December subscribers were re- ceiving an 8 V 2 x 11 paper with four to eight pages and an increased amount of student opinion on a diversity of subjects. A regular column reviewing recent movies and plays reminded readers of the existence of a world beyond school affairs. The LASSO staff is one of the few that does its own printing which does not deter it from tak- ing top honors from Columbia Scholastic Press Association.

Organizational Budding authors, critics, and journalists got off to a quick- moving start this year as under- classmen familiarized themselves with newspaper and magazine pro- duction. However, ROUND-UP, the Junior High newspaper, was in difficulty. Due to organizational problems and the waning interest of its staff, it was forced to aban- don production plans for this year. Meanwhile, DIMENSION, the younger generation ' s literary magazine, was successful in turn- ing out both Winter and Spring editions. A limited group of readers screened prospective material which ranged from poems and short stories, to original art work on various versions of " Happiness is. . The resulting magazine showed promise for future talents in journalism. Problems Plague ROUND-UP ROUND-UP. From Left, Front Row: Margaret Karnis, John Walls, Kim Walker.

Dramatists Combine Experience, Ambition in Recognizable by their bleary eyes and wilted scripts, Drama Club members ranged from the Class of ' 69 on down. From " Everyman " to the Children ' s Play, the club showed that high- quality productions could be per- formed on low budgets. The clubs involved the entire school with " Everyman ' s " production in true house-that-Jack-built style. Art students designed sets for shop students to construct, to the cos- tumes that Home-Ecers stitched, for the cast to wear, to the origi- nal score that the band played. The result was lauded by the community. Late winter found Senior Drama actors at Madison in prep- aration of the Three One-Acts, while Junior Drama Clubbers ex- perimented with stage techniques. Efforts paid off as a bus load of eager members arrived at District Competition. CAROL HULL B.A., Hamline University. English. Speech Drama. Senior High Drama Club.

Ranging from the old staples — U.S. and Va. Gov- ernment, Geography and U.S. and Va. History, it extends to a wide range of stimulating electives — Psychology, International Rela- tions, Social Problems, Civics and Economics. Sporting five new teachers, the Department employed new and unorthodox methods of in- struction; once the students be- came accustomed to them, things went smoothly. Co-ordinating current events with a thorough understanding of the past, the Social Studies De- partment helped us understand a complicated election year. CHARLES HAROLD M.A., Glasgow University.

The main supporters of the AFS pro- gram in GM, International Relations Club members are always " having someone over, " to meetings. The " someone " is usually a member of an Embassy staff, or other foreign citizen, come to talk about his country. Foreign representa- tives have included those of Turkey and Czechoslovakia as well as Venezuelan students, Norys Soles and Pablo Velaszco. The IRC sponsored AFS Fall Work- day netted over S400 and that success was carried over to the American Field Service Assembly and another later work day. Christmas card sales netted addi- tional funds.

Second Row: Kathy Crane, Robin Cruise, Chris Offering a wide range of choice courses, the Math Department worked hard at getting its charges ready to cope with the big, cold, numerical world. The usual list of classes, included Algebra, Geome- try, and Trigonometry, was augmented with Probability and Statistics, a fun-filled course involving the study of such unre- lated events as our football and basketball teams ' performance, and the Presidential election in November. Functions, and A. P. Calculus, were available to the figuratively minded. Under the " iron " grip of Coach With- ers the Math Team matched wits against the mathematical wizards from Fairfax County. It was certainly an uphill fight and as the season went on Math Team found themselves answering more questions . . . correctly. The long bus trips provided good warm-up time and the team put up commendable fights against their tremen- dous 1-A rivals. 24 Inspiration for Numerical Seniors Terman, Captain; Rhonda Bost.

Seventh and eighth graders, given a strong background in gen- eral science, graduate into the sophisticated labs and independ- ent research projects of the Sen- ior High. Select students in an advanced placement course attend such revelating experiences as a lecture by Dr. Seabourg on " Youth and the Atom. " Physics students participating in a lab on wave mo- tion, snared unsuspecting hall walkers with their lurking slinkys and wires. Accumulated bits and pieces of knowledge, such as identifying a Cyprus Larch, reciting va- lences, or diagnosing Dopier ef- fects, yield surprising results in scientific achievements, and pro- duce many avid laymen in the field.

Meet standards of scientific interest and a strong nervous system and your membership in the Biology Club is welcomed. Labs are spent crucifying and dissect- ing pickled creatures; a Biological Lab trip and fossil hunt were organized. While we rattle off game scores, the Club is complete with knowledge of mandi- bles and gizzards, successfully preserving the high standards of the biological mind. Waiting for Science to start. 29 Puerto-Rican Rendez-vous Brightens Bent on increasing their awareness of the customs and people of Spanish-speaking coun- tries, the members of the Spanish Club are students looking beyond their own environment. Speaking the language and enjoying Spanish and Latin Ameri- can cuisine are two of the more enjoyable activities of the group. The words of various speakers are absorbed and digested as well. The yearly Pinata Party was the usual success, with candy flying and broomsticks waving. Later in the year Hispanophiles took a trip to Lisner Auditorium to hear Andres Segovia. Raising money by the inevitable bakesales, the club held a Spanish Dinner and an In- ternational dinner where mem- bers sampled the good gastro- nomical life available south of the border. The Spanish Honor Society rec- ognizes high academic achieve- ment in the language. Inductions were held in the early spring. LOUISE COSTA Co-ordinator, Language Dept.

French Club Sponsor, Senior Class Sponsor. The French Club and the French Honor Society broke the grade barrier and decided to work together on all activites. The Honor Society recognizes high academic achievement with the emphasis on proficiency in French. Both clubs are full of more or less dedicated Francophiles. The club sponsored a jaunt down to the Lisner Auditorium to see Moliere ' s Le Tartuffe, and planned to see the annual festival of French movies at McLean High School. What would a French Club be if it didn ' t eat French food? They did not overlook this important aspect of their culture study and had an enjoyable lunch at a French Protestant Church in Washington. To encourage others in their own enthusiasm for French cuisine, they participated in the Interna- tional Dinner and then planned a French dinner. Based on the premise that you are what you eat, we have the most French French Clubs anywhere. French Club and Honor Society. Far Left: Mrs. Jackson, Sponsor. Far Right: Mrs. Alim, Sponsor.

The George Mason branch of The Future Homemakers of America completed a busy slate of activities. Their tasty concoc- tions lured a crowd to the Club Tea in September, and soothed teachers at the Pre-Christmas Teacher ' s Tea. At monthly meet- ings, they acquired new accom- plishments: the delicate art of Chinese cuisine, a lesson on fashion and three bagfuls of tricks of grooming techniques. 34 Business increases Job Opportunities Future Business Leaders of America.

Artful craftsman of all grades turn out handsome products of leather and ceramic tile under the supervision of the shop teach- ers. Design is studied in the various co-ed mechanical drawing classes, while wood and metal working are offered in another course.

Although usually viewed filling the back bleachers at football games, or serenading the crowd at pep rallies, the Band moon- lighted with several other activi- ties. New marching formations were created for half-time enter- tainment, a select portion of brass and woodwinds provided the musi- cal score for " Everyman, " and a quality Christmas Assembly was provided by bypassing the more jingly Yuletide tunes in favor of modern music. The Winter Con- cert featuring Broadway show tunes drew a good crowd, appre- ciative of the sparkly music. The Colts, Junior High coun- terparts of the Senior Band, spent their practice sessions learning new techniques in preparation for their graduation into the Senior section. They marched at JV Foot- ball games during halftime. After competition in the Music Festival in the early spring, the 1969 season went out to the tune of " Pomp and Circumstance " as the group set the mood for graduating Seniors.

The Ninth-Tenth Grade Choirs ' calen- dar was filled with assemblies, a musical, and a lot of practice for the District I VMEA All-Regional Chorus Competition. The choir al- so hosted the first District IV Junior High Clinic. Members of the Advanced Mixed Chorus kept themselves busy with the production of two musicals this year. They also added participation in the SCA Electives Fair to their busy docket. A select group of vocalists joined the ranks of the Readers ' Ensemble. The girls dressed in black, floor-l ength skirts while male members made the scene in black suits and vests.

A honorary music society, the Tri-AA is composed of full and ap- prentice members selected through rigorous auditions. The members do their best to encour- age interest and appreciation for this branch of fine arts. Tri-AA members spent much of their time this year in setting up a regional Tri-AA organization. A Tri-AA Newsletter was established in hopes of increasing communi- cation with area Tri-AA clubs. It was a year of innovations and new concerns for AAodern AAusic AAasters. While upperclass musicians busied themselves with Tri-AA ac- tivities, " AAini AAusic AAasters 7 or the Seventh-Eighth Grade Choirs, busied themselves with learning music fundamentals. In hopes of making progress the boys and girls held separate classes; ap- parently this psychology worked because the young singers showed signs of prospective talents with their pre-school Christmas carols, assemblies and elementary school programs. Debbie Blystone tries her hand at conducting the Ninth and Tenth Grade Choir. 43 P.E. Builds Strong Bodies Twelve Ways Dedicated to turning out well- rounded students, the four gym instructors (one of them new) counted laps, measured leaps, and taught driving theory.

The Student Council Association is dedicated to establishing a uniform sys- tem of governing student activities. Once they managed to get everybody gathered around (most of the legislation concerned attendance), they performed several worthy projects. Starting off with a Welcome Tea and dance the SCA proceeded to make itself indispensable by organizing and running announcements, elections, a forum on student-police relations, and rooters ' buses. Various other services rendered included daily flag raising, operation of the Lost and Found, and coordination of the bulletin boards. The council ' s good works extended to the cafeteria where a stroke of SCA genius provided pretty, but pungent plastic tablecloths, and monitors, to control the feeding Mustang herd. In order to make the school even more charming, the second annual Christmas Contest was won by the Freshmen, and the Student Square was landscaped. To prevent the student body from be- coming totally immersed in the world of school affairs, the SCA did its best to broaden our collective political mind by running a mock presidential election.

Like the proverbial ants- nest, this group is always seeth- ing with activity. Busily develop- ing initiative and leadership, they make a point ot serving the school and community. The Keyettes have contributed s uch valuable services as mending the mashed Mason mascot, shining the mus- tang shoes and raising the tlag at football games. A good deal of the mimeographed material distrib- uted by our peerless pedagogues has been prepared by the nimble fingered typists. They have brought Thanks- giving favors to meal trays of White Hall, crepe paper and Christmas cheer to the teacher ' s lounge and assistance for parents at Back-To-School Night. Also thanks to the Keyettes the tro- phies were polished, the Salvation Army ' s stockings were stuffed and their Thanksgiving baskets filled, and the Christmas Bureau was staffed. They also collected for ALSAC and UNICEF. Not content to let this im- pressive list stand at that, they proceeded to carol during the Christmas holidays, and provide well qualified tutors for the Fair- fax Community Action Program. to Serve School and Community Chief decorator, Susie Ames, displays her talent in the teacher ' s room. There ' s got to be a genie in one of these trophies if we rub hard enough. " You mean nobody brought a car! How are we going to get home when we ' re through Christmas caroling? " Debbie McMillen and Meg Scott horse around while getting Mustang Sally ready for the game. Membership Drive Nets New Hi-Y ' ers Picking up initiates along the way, the George Mason Hi-Y Club, part of the vast YMCA, fulfilled its portion of international goals. Early in the year, the group (headed by Charlie Newland and Frank King) jointly collected for UNICEF with GM ' s other serv- ice groups, and bagged $167.67. Each quarter, the boys could be spied dragging trash cans underneath the bleachers and crumpling up Hot-Shoppes refuse on the front lawn, in their efforts to clean up the school grounds. The Club took time out from school and community services to battle the Key Club on the bas- ketball courts, highlighting the game with their antics. The activities of 1968-69 created a strong, efficient Hi-Y that its heirs will be proud of. From Left, Front Row: Ray Rollins, Treasurer; Charles Newland, President; Frank King, Vice- President.

Expansion Invigorat es Tri-Hi-Y The George Mason Branch of the international Tri-Hi-Y Club, benefitting by the sponsorship of Mrs. Ashby and the leadership of Judy Parsons, has coordinated their purpose of maintaining high standards of Christian character with the accomplishment of var- ious services. Summer meetings, and a pre- September membership drive boosted sagging spirits, increased membership from five to twenty- seven, and created a fervent and organized club. Prior to induction into the local Tri-Hi-Y chapter, the group held a bakesale, a slumber party, constructed car-signs for Home- coming festivities, UNICEFed, and raised $50 with a mint sale. The club was formally linked with the local YMCA in mid-December, and continued their projects — a Pep Rally skit, and coke sales at basketball games.

The Future Nurses held a stuffed animal drive for Fairfax Hospital; toured Fairfax Hospital; helped to train a child with Cerebral Palsy; organized an Easter Egg Hunt for retarded children and visited area nursing homes.

From the Pot Luck Supper inductions to the banana split party this is one of the most energetic groups in GM.

Call of the Wild K +-QB 3: Chess Club in The Wilderness Society was initiated this year as another GAA first. The Society held well-at- tended sessions in the dreary pre- school hours every Wednesday to inform club members of the con- stantly changing expedition plans. If a Society member is active, it means he is literally very much so. Cavorting over, under, and about the local countryside is sometimes uncomfortable and often exhausting, but never boring. Rappeling down the side of a 75 foot cliff with only a rope around your waist just does not encourage drowsiness. Neither does a ride in the back of the Stuckey truck. Skiing, skating, hiking, moun- tain climbing, spelunking, or camping, not to mention pros- pecting and having hilarious snow- ball wars, were involved in the Society ' s adventures. Hunched defensively over sixteen tiny men, castles, and horses, the Chess Club members battle wits and pawn off insults onto each other twice a month. Led by Kevin Burns, and coached by Mr. Comber, the club spends from 45 to 120 ' minutes on intra-team competition each meeting, and occasionally the same on inter-school matches. Uniquely, the Chess Team membership roll spans six grades; the ladder rating system plays no favorites by age in de- termining the top five " Boards.

Flying Club Lays Ground Work Arriving concurrently with Mrs. Johnson, the innovative fly- ing club spent its tirst year trying to get off the ground. ' Although spacious plans were spawned (among them attendance at ground school, and a group sky-voyage) they were not all achieved, due to shaky organiza- tion and failure to procure loan of an air vehicle. Nonetheless, spirits remained high, the club brought its goals down from the clouds a bit, and, muttering, " Curse you, Red Bar- on, " set their sights on 1970. 63 Fresh Format Enhances Mustang Image From Left, Front Row: An Larson, Copy Editor; Gail Clinton, Production Editor; Suzanne DuPont, Underclass Editor; Debbie McMillen, Organizations Editor.

This year the yearbook staff fell into place with a new acquisition . . . experi- ence. Members of last year ' s staff cou- rageously returned to assume new posi- tio ns as editors. Two-thirty was set aside as Mustang period; the Mustang Choir provided en- tertainment with the " Instrument Song " while the more industrious compiled lay- outs and developed pictures. The Physics lab was unfortunately designated as the Mustang sanctuary, and consequently, Butch was constantly sleeping in the hood, while H 2 0 flowed. Spilled cokes and quick tempers characterized the early Saturday morning get-togethers; in between trips to Hot Shoppes and general gab-sessions, a little work was accomplished. However, it was the last minute bj;ain storms and the night-before-deadline dedication that saw the creation of MUSTANG ' 69. Occasional visits from the mad-math- master terrified the staff — 400 alphabet- ized receipts were once tossed into the air — and also provided opportunity to re- taliate for her practical jokes. As deadlines approached, the motto became " Be a little less creative and work a little faster. " Each individual buckled down to serious work and the yearbook started to fall together. Inno- vations in the cover and style were suc- cessful in making MUSTANG 1969 an original annual.

Class of ' 69, last survivors of a decade that will not be forgotton — arriving the same year as the gym floor and team-teaching wing: chugging along with Doug and Tug in ' 63; bomb scares in ' 64; new, firmer policies in ' 65. Who will remember the grotesque pile of painted gourds and fruit on the caf- eteria wall; the non-acoustic stage (and gum-coated balconies) where we romped through " The Mikado " and " H.M.S. Pinafore " ? Who will recall sockless boys with madras shirts, and girls in saddle shoes and crew-socks; Ber- muda Day; bi-weekly trips to the language lab; Mr. Bucklin ' s Glum Bubble-Gum Chums; Biology and worm dissection — " Count thirteen segments and slice. " Who will remember school dis- missal at 2:30? at 3:00? at 3:30? a Hootenanny and " Mountain Dew " ; the Roaches, the Electras, Ye Baye Rums, and sock-hops where you im- itated the in-crowd; Science Fairs and alcholic rats; " A Night in New York " ; becoming eligible for honor societies, but not making it; Alison; Psychotic Dimensions; selling Beat Signs; trading in your gym suit for government with the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Who can forget Scarborough Fair and 200 empty Kleenex boxes; Raili, Santi; the innovative Mother ' s Brothers Drop-In with George, Steve and " Alice " ; a subdued throng gath- ering on the front lawn to pay trib- ute to a lost leader; final exams as Juniors, nerves stilled by rumors of another assassination. Then long summer nights punc- tuated with PTA blacktop dances; and the side-burned, sun-tanned amalgamate that returned in Sep- tember as the Class of ' 69; the new privilege of independent study (a trip to-Hot Shoppes); switching Eng- lish teachers and nervously studying Satan, thumbing through " Man and Superman, " and analyzing Carson McCuller; ransacking the college reference shelf or playing college; Victor; YAC and gripe-sessions; 1 trips to the pool tables at the CC; the " marahuana movie " ; stomping through the swamp with Blue Fox and the Cobblestone Rat Pack? Who will forget a class of dis- tinct individuals each doing his own thing; silent expectations for late- March - or - early - April; wistful glances at the towering new addi- tion; a trip up the steps and down with your future in your hand . . .

With a surprising command over American-English, Victor evoked jealousy in Speech Class with his entertaining, thoughtful commentaries. He also surprised the Driver ' s, his American fam- ily, by nonchalantly tucking away mammoth steaks, and mixing up his words now and then. Victor spent his year adding dry wit to the LASSO, ransacking the dark room for Joe, working for AFS, or espousing: on American girls — " very nice, better than Europeans " ; in praise of U.S. in- formality; or on Dutch beer and drinking — " you can do it without being looked at. " As Victor says, his aim this year was to establish good rela- tions with Americans.

V 97 Junior Class From left: Barbara Mahaffey, Secretary; Mike Lacy, Treasurer; Kinsley Morse, President; Bill Marsh, Vice-President; Susie Ames, Representative. Thanks to the phenomenal effi- ciency and organizing ability of its president, the Junior Class finished most of its planning for this year before school had even started. Four bake sales had been planned and executed and a Welcoming Committee formed by the time Sep- tember rolled around, enabling the eleventh grade to add $300 to its treasury. A successful carwash, a stu- pendous and lucrative Spaghetti Dinner, and the formation of a wildly enthusiastic if defeated Pow- derpuff Football team were among the early accomplishments of the class. Thereafter followed a prof- itable Ring Dance, a beautiful Sweetheart Dance, i and a well- planned Junior Variety Show. To keep the class up to date on all projects, a Junior Class Bulle- tin was circulated monthly, another innovation to promote participation and cooperation. Turning all talents to making money for the Prom vied with heavy schedules but somehow a happy (and profitable) medium had been reached by the time that still an- other class function rolled around; that of serving as ushers at the Senior ' s Baccalaureate and Gradu- ation. A well-prepared Junior Class was ready to come into its own. 98 Achieves Scholastic Success Larry Addison Tom Alexander Susie Ames Roy Anderson Owen Baynham Karen Black Pret Block Debbie Blystone Laurie Bolster Gary Boone Chris Boswell Judy Bradley Terry Brennan Barbara Brittain Chris Brown Randy Bullock Kevin Burns Mary Burrell Ritchie Buschow Gary Campbell Jon Calloway Joe Carpenter Marianne McGlynn, Craig Medak, Kinsley Morse, and Priss Tackney light candles at Honor Society assembly.

The Class of ' 7 1 took its promo- tion to the gym floor seriously as it set out to prove itself a functioning and important member of the Senior High. It did this by individual con- tribution and participation rather than by a collective effort. The high number of tenth-graders that invari- ably turned out for school projects attested to this fact, as did the large proportions of Sophomores found ac- tively participating in the Drama and Pep Clubs. The major class undertaking was the production of the Christmas Dance, ungrudgingly passed down by last year ' s sophomores. Class spirit was further encouraged by a successfully co-ordinated sock- hop. As members of the class began to assert their individuality they be- came less involved in class-linked activities and followed their own in- terests into other areas, ever mind- ful of their status as mighty Sophomores.

The class of ‘17 began establish- ing a reputation as a winner this year. Not only did its Homecoming dummy place first, but its Powder- Puff football team, in collaboration with a few seniors, trounced the Sophomore-Junior contigent 6-0. The SCA Welcome Dance in September established a long awaited legal precedent in being the first bit of GAA night life that they could enjoy without the risk of being thrown out. Taking advantage of their new status, they planned a sock hop of their own. It was a year of being influenced and guided, both collectively and in- dividually; the first real step toward eventual independence.

Second year veterans of the GAA rat race, the eighth grade began the year by assuming an unprecedented amount of responsibility. Their first move was to take over the Lost-and- Found in a noble effort towards keeping the student body in full possession of its belongings. The class of ' 73 took the lead in the Junior High Council as well as in planning two successful dances with the Seventh Grade. Members of the class were fre- quently seen observing dance man- agement techniques at sock hops in an increasing effort to ready them- selves for future accomplishments. A large portion of the class ' s energy was used in learning through observation and imitation as each member formed his tentative opin- ion of what role he should play in the next four years.

Another boisterously uncertain horde of kids with a half a dozen years of preparation already under their belts ascended to and de- scended on GAA in the fall. There was the usual confused first-en- counter with lockers, multiple classrooms and each other. Then they all settled down to the tortur- ous exploration of the social and physical labyrinth in which they found themselves. Alliances were formed, as the benefits of flocking together became more and more apparent. Careers in extracurricular activities were be- gun with membership in the Pep Club, the Round-Up and the Junior Drama Club. Incredibly enthusiastic class elections in September gave prom- ise of a developing class identity. What was first an unknown quantity began to be recognized as a fa- miliar part of the student body.

Students for Homecoming Happenings The first tangible signs of Spirit Week 1968, were the doomed dummies slouched in their Death Row a-top the trophy case, and the red and white penny-a-link spirit chains festooning the halls. These were only the first of the myriad generators of Mustang Electricity. Posters papered every wall and good luck strings adorned countless fingers. The mystery rooter phrase, " Beat Colts ' was on every tongue as were Pep Club Peppermints. Tuesday, Wednes- day and Thursday, re-christened " Wink at Football Player Day, " " Tennis Shoe day, " and " Girls Wear Jersey Day " , came and went as spirit mounted higher and higher. Friday night witnessed a unique pep rally on the black top. Beneath multicolored Christmas tree lights, hoarse cheerleaders and dancing football players boosted hopes while trying to avoid each other ' s flailing feet. A special guest appearance by the Good Fairy provided the final magic touch, then everyone trooped home with anticipation of the pending game and further festivities.

Not so obligingly, it rained from beginning to end, dampening the extensive plans consi- derably. The first thing to be cancelled was the parade from City Hall to GM which was to include our float and Governor Godwin. As it happened, the Mustangs needed little extra encouragement. They so de- moralized and demolished the Congres- sional Colts, that they splashed off the field at half-time, never to return. Queen Robin and her court cruised up in Mrs. Humphrey ' s limousine, instead of the usual convertibles. Huddled under black umbrellas, the regal procession made its watery way down the track without the ac- companiment of the rained-out band. Robin was presented with a dozen red roses, com- pliments of Burger King, then given a brotherly kiss by John, acting in his ca- pacity of co-captain of the football team. The crowd ' s enthusiasm was only slightly diluted. As the Good Fairy had promised, " An Enchanted Autumn " was discovered that night in the Team-Teaching Room, thanks to the handiwork of creative Seniors. As bestirs a fall ritual, the Homecoming dance was held beneath a huge harvest moon amid corn stalks and pumpkins. Margaret Hannum, 1967 ' s Homecoming Queen, did the honors, after which everyone joined in the Queen ' s Dance, culminating a triumphant week and a well-spent evening. 1967 Homecoming Queen Margaret Hannum crowns Queen Robin Cruise.

With the coming of Christmas, the Sophomore Class accepted the now tradi- tional responsibility of the Christmas Dance. Disorganization reigned in conflicts with basketball games and the administra- tion concerning the date and place. The old problem of an over-extended budget, controversies over the theme, " Within a Snowflake, " the printing of programs, the assembly line snowflakes and the shortage of court escorts plagued chair- man Debbie Wiencek. During the two days of preparation, energetic Sophomore girls dangled snowflakes, frosted windows and hung the pink parachute. The night of the dance complete with rain (not snow!) found the Village Squires in a setting complete with dishes of marshmallows and unlit candles. With trembling bouquets, the court introduction began. Sunday morning found the Giant Snowflake in the trash after weary Sopho- mores, S100 poorer, finished their clean- up. It was worth it. 144 Melts Christmas Vacation Blahs Couples rest during a band break. The Court slows down to the vibrating Village Squires. Queen Cindy and King Charles await their entrance.

In an effort to maintain their reputation for staging beautiful dances, the Class of ' 70 gave the cafeteria " The Look of Love " for one night. The decor involved hundreds of poly-chromed tissue- paper flowers mounted on a chick- en-wire frame; a jet of water that issued from an island of plastic flowers surrounded by bricks and real ivy; a kleenex-rose covered trellis and matching " trees; " and nylon parachute-draped windows. Members of the Junior Class nailed, sawed, cut, and folded for almost a month before the dance. Co-ordinating these activities, Chairmen Carol Ingle and Andy Du- Pont, and Kinsley spent their time assigning, pleading, and trying to fit together all the bits and pieces into a recognizable whole. Couples strolling through the floral gazebo found themselves in the midst of a horticulturist ' s dreams; the dec- orations were a huge success. The comely court bloomed un- der an arch of roses beneath what looked like huge silken webs, and various sweethearts danced on a roomy floor to the tunes of the Penny Arcade. Unfortunately, despite the bountiful greenery at the dance, not much came into the Junior Class tills.

Man ' s search for ultimate meaning has led to an infinite variety of endeavors, among them the Dramatics Club production of a searching medieval morality, Every- man. Part of the thrust to put message in the medium, Everyman is perhaps George Mason ' s most ambitious theatrical produc- tion to date, combinin g a wealth of dra- matic, home economic, art and industrial art talent. With the approach of opening night, academic concerns faded, as cast and crew both submerged themselves totally in the effort to push Everyman over the top. Per- haps the three-pronged direction of Mrs. Hull, Mrs. Baker and Mrs. Bohart provided the needed extra shove, for Everyman was indeed a success and a dramatic milestone at George Mason.

The past two years have seen an in- crease in both the variety and quality of dramatic productions here at GAA. This truth was evident in the annual production of three one act plays, Feb. 14-15. The three plays presented were; " Opening Night, " a comedy of manners; " Wisp in the Wind, " a dialog on searching; and " Rocking Horse Winner, " a morbid fantasy. The weeks preceding the production passed less than smoothly. Each play had its own problem. " Opening Night " was plagued by eleventh hour cast changes, " Wisp in the Wind " by the mere memori- zation of lines, and " Rocking Horse Win- ner " by property problems. Three days before opening, two flats were destroyed and the plays were left almost setless, but the show went on. Particular thanks are due to Mrs. Hull and student director, Rory McBroom for service beyond the call of duty. " The lawyer chaps phoned me. It ' s some estate matter. " Uncle Oscar speaks of the inheritance to Hester. 151 Seniors Meg and Fiona talk of wedding in Market Square. After an intensive and frenzied series of rehearsals (right up until curtain time the second night) the choirs created the mythical village of Briga- doon right on our own stage. It was a cast of thousands, milling around the stage in the various market and wedding scenes. The second night ' s performance, with most of the set filled in was enor- mously enhanced by the addition of so- phisticated and effective lighting tech- niques to the set. One of the highlights of the show, the chase scene, was car- ried out effectively, so well in fact, that it broke the circuit breaker. Brightly colored and well tailored plaids swirled about the stage following the movements of their rigorously rehearsed wearers. The dancers performed their part by working together through simple but in- teresting dance routines. Brigadoon was a learning experience for all.

The girls started practicing weeks ahead and after a lot of concentration, were able to master what appeared to be some sort of zone defense. Perhaps a little more time should have been spent practicing foul shots as the girls faced the usual problem of too much kicking and scratching. The Juniors had the height, Bouncing-Belinda, and Fleet-foot Lynch, but the Seniors had the brains, the speed, Brenda Schu- man, and Jumpin ' -Jean Elam. The game was a real hair-raiser, and the Almighty Seniors emerged the 19-18 victors in the last nerve- racking seconds of the game. Both teams put on a fine show as did the shapely male cheerleaders.

Brenda Schuman and Linda Miers follow the ball down court. Mr. Stuckey leaps for the ball. The fans went wild with the fiasco which followed the Junior- Senior game — it was the Faculty versus the Key C lub. Women teach- ers who appear meek and mild enough in the classroom made their appearance as pig-tailed, loose- limbed, Faculty cheerleaders with their multi-colored tights and well-rehearsed (if not unusual) cheers. Meanwhile, the male members of the faculty turned in their every- day suits for red basketball trunks and proceeded to really burn up the court. ' Red 7 Raines with his fancy footwork, and ' Ball-State-Wonder 7 Williams with his leaping, spurred the team onto the final 77-64 vic- tory. The Key Clubbers, pegged as the underdogs from the very start, had a few tricks (as well as draf- tees) up their sleeves and managed to give the confident faculty a fight to the bitter end. The faculty how- ever, had to pay for its victory with the aches and pains which accom- pany old age, while the limber Key Clubbers felt no after effects aside from a deflated ego. i 155 New Community Center Eclipses Junior High students show " how its done " at the Pumpkin Prance.

Their biggest competition came from the MUSTANG staff, whose Senior Superlative presentation gave them a somewhat unfair advantage. Precedent for things to come was set by the SCA at the Welcome Dance, " This is Your School, Charlie Brown. " Speeding through the other SCA entries we arrive at the MUSTANG Dance. The superlative ceremony, presided over by Craig Medak, will not soon be remembered by all who attended. Some of the sock hops 7 usual thunder was stolen by the opening of the Community Center, which proved to be a dance location somewhat superior to the cafeteria.

Characterized as usual by a prepon- derance of female underclassmen, the Pep Club met every other week to create Mustang fever. Every football game found members swarming over the goal posts to swath them in crepe paper. Thanks to their dedication in staying after school for long hours, innumerable signs were posted, advertising athletic events, and expressing such school- spirited sentiments as " Stomp Wildcats, " and " Crush Raiders. " Pep Club mem- bers helped produce programs and livened up pep rallys with their skits. What ' s red and white and has thirty- two legs? The GM JV and Varsity Cheer- leading Squads. With an improved image by the addition of two new girls to each squad, and crisp uniforms all around, the cheerleaders continued to fulfill their duty as chief spirit raisers. Their dedi- cation echoed down halls twice a week, and showed up in cheers and jumps on the gym floor every Friday and Saturday nights. Surprisingly good sportsmanship characterized the season ' s cheering and linked the squads with the pandemonium in the balconies. Voices hoarse, saddle shoes smudged, and megaphones dented, the cheerleaders were a colorful addition to the " Mustang " side-lines. 160 Soul-teasers, Crowd-pleasers i I « I Varsity Cheerleaders, From Left, Bot- tom Row: Colleen Lynch, Gini Bonnell, Co-Captain; Priscilla Tackney.

The Monogram Club this year inducted another fistful of top quality athletes in keeping with a strong tradition. Boys who have lettered in their particular sport are invited to join. The meetings are a little irregular because of after school practice, but when meetings are held, they border on the hilarious. The highlight of the fall in- duction was induction week. The inductees had to promote school spirit for the basketball game and wrestling match that took place that weekend. 162 Jr A ■ ■11 lir ■r % f jjj 1968 Cross Country Team.

Faced with the task of repeating last year ' s state championship team, this year ' s Cross Coun- try team encountered many problems. With only two experienced starters, Kim Champion and Paul Karnis returning, the team was undermanned and inexperienced. The schedule called for tough meets against such strong teams as James Wood, Gar-Field, and the tough Wakefield Invitational Tournament. With such stiff competition the young team was able to win only the Osbourn meet. The District meet at Manassas, proved to be a disappointment; for the first time in recent years the team failed to qualify for State. Kim Champion provided the bright spot by capturing a ninth place medal. 163 Byrd looks for daylight against Clarke County. Pret Block turns the corner en route to a long punt return.

After beating Culpeper, 16-6, in the opening game, the team conquered Brentsville District in their debut against a Monument District team. Successive losses to Stonewall Jackson, James Wood, and Woodbridge, brought the record down to 2-3, but the Mustangs bounced back to beat Clarke County, 25-0, and Congres- sional, 31-6, in the annual Homecoming game. The next two weeks found the team traveling to Osbourn and Gar-Field to play the two top-rated teams in the district. Unable to put together a consistent offense, the team relied on the defense which en- abled the Mustangs to end with a hard- fought 0-0 tie with Osbourn, and a 7-7 tie with Gar-Field. The team then returned home to end up a 25-7 loser to the James Monroe powerhouse. Perhaps the most important achieve- ment of the team was the respect it gained throughout the Monument District. In years to come George Mason will be looked upon as a threat rather than a soft team from up north. Wendell Byrd and Chuck Stickney made the All-Monument District Team.

Starting early in September with new players, coaches, and a new style of foot- ball, the team found the going rough against such strong teams as Garfield and Osbourn. Yet the boys never gave up and turned in some good performances, almost upsetting Stonewall Jackson and battling a stubborn Brentsville District to the wire, only to lose 7-0. The boys anxiously anticipated their last game of the season against the Wood- bridge Vikings to whom they had lost ear- lier. This game promised to be the most exciting and the boys practiced diligently. However the weather would not co-operate and after one postponement the game was permanently cancelled much to the players ' disappointment. Prospects appear brighter for next year, since this year ' s team was composed of many eighth and ninth graders who will be back next fall with a full season ' s ex- perience under their belts.

Despite stiff competition in a new league, the ' 68 Soccer Team, outfitted in new uniforms, pulled through the year with a 4-5-1 record. The Mustangs won only one of their first six games, and after four consecutive losses, Mr. Harold gave the team incentive with the 4-2-4 line-up in- stead of the traditional 5-3-2. With the new line up the Mustangs won three of the last four games, losing to Wake- field only by the referee ' s decision. The last game, against W and L, was the highlight of the season. In the first half, the Mustangs newly mastered defense held the deadly W and L offense to a 0-0 tie, but in the third quarter, W and L scored twice. With only ten minutes, the Mustangs tied the game. In the final two minutes, they scored a third goal beating previously un- defeated W and L. First-string Seniors Mark Tosti, David Blake, John Hundley and Glenn Kight will be sorely missed but underclass returnees show great promise. John Hundley leads tight Mustang defense. 170 S occer GM 1 Yorktown 2 GM 2 Friends 1 GM 0 Wakefield 0 GM 2 O ' Connell 4 GM 2 Yorktown 7 GM 3 Friends 1 GM 0 Wakefield 1 GM 3 O ' Connell 1 GM 3 Washington-Lee 2 Wayne Coates grapples for the ball against an O ' Connell forward.

This year ' s wrestling team, having only one year ' s experience, fared ex- tremely well in the rough competition presented by the Monument District teams. Under the guidance of Coach Miller, the wrestlers gained knowledge and ex- perience through the year, and as the District Tournament rolled around the boys were confident of improving last year ' s performance. The team placed fourth in the meet with Kim and Kelly Champion, Jim and Al Davis, Bill Martin, and Bill Marsh all qualifying for the 1-B State meet in Bristol, Va. A school-wide fund- raising drive collected more than enough money to send these boys to State. After a long trip and two days of wrestling the young team returned home having captured fourth place in the tourna- ment. Kelly Champion and Jim and Al Davis won second place medals with Kim Champion taking a third place. 1 Team Pins Down Fourth Place Kim, Kelly Champion, A Davis Win at District Record GM ... 21 Spotsylvania 29 GAA . . . 28 Stafford 23 GM ... 30 Osbourn 16 GM ... 16 Stonewall Jackson . . 36 GM ... 21 Stonewall Jackson . . 31 GM ... 41 Brentsville 11 GM . . . 16 Gar-Field 32 GM ... 46 Brentsville 8 GM . . . 36 Stafford 14 GM ... 41 Woodbridge 13 Al Davis wrestles in District Tournament at Osborn.

New head coach Jim Raines set the ' 69 basketball team ' s goal: to improve the former record of 2-13, and become a top 1-B area team. Facing a tough schedule of 18 games plus the district tournament, the team compiled a 14-7 overall record. Nondistrict games pre- pared the team for District play; highlighting the set was a 60-54 victory over Handley. In District play, the Mustangs pulled a 6-4 record, with wins ov- er all league teams but Gar-Field. In the tournament, the team beat Stonewall and then met Gar-Field. The Mustangs grabbed a 25-24 half- time lead but Indian talents made Gar-Field the 48-44 victors. Bounc- ing back to annihilate Mary N. Smith, 75-45, the team took third place in the tournament. With the loss of only two play- ers, the team may well rank as number one in 1970.

This year ' s JV basketball team faced the same old problem; acute lack of experience. Despite this problem, the team, stocked with new faces and young players, showed signs of real promise. Playing an eighteen game schedule plus, for the first time, a JV District Tournament, the ba- by Mustangs compiled a 4-15 over- all record. In their only tourna- ment game, the Mustangs made an excellent showing against Osbourn, but lost in the last minutes, 43-49. Three of this year ' s starters will be returning next year.

U.S.A 207 A political year, September 1968 brought sun-tanned students back to GM and an issue-packed year. In Miami Republicans held an extremely quiet convention and chose Nixon. The loss of RFK was felt at the riot-ridden Demo- cratic Convention in Chicago as the party split in confu- sion; nominee Hubert H. Humphrey survived. Between com- position courses and football games, students debated the candidates ' merits. Classrooms filled with campaigning, arguing, and the rat-a-tat-tats of construction on the au- ditorium . . . Jackie Kennedy ' s marriage caused more con- troversy in the classroom — an image shattered. Thoughts shifted to the local scene with the dedication of the Com- munity Center, partly solving the long-debated loitering issue, and the celebration of a very wet Homecoming . . . November brough t the election itself; it was HHH all the way at GM, but a plurality of the nation elected Nixon. The novelty of the election wore off and the topic of conversa- tion turned to report cards and English electives. Students produced and acted in movies .. . The Nixon-Eisenhower marriage occupied the Decem- ber spotlight. The rest of the month was a lost cause as students prepared for a very cold Christmas vacation, most of which was spent in front of the television watching three Amer- ican astronauts orbit the moon. The crewmen of the PUEBLO made it home in time for the holidays, eleven months after their capture, to be met with inquiries and scrutiny of the " code of conduct " . . . The return to school in Jan- uary brought an important victory over Osbourn as well as the first snowfall of the year. Jan- uary 20, Johnson returned to the ranch while GM students got an extra vacation, the Paris peace talks floundered, and opposition to Nix- on ' s cabinet was voiced and forgotten. Rebel- lion and Responsibility was taught and ques- tioned when a young Czech burned himself demonstrating against the Russian invasion. . . Wars and troop involvement headlined the in- ternational scene with Berlin elections and Arab-lsraeli conflicts. Temperatures rose as Hong Kong flu confined thousands to bed . Sports dominated February as did Sirhan ' s trial and Laird ' s talk of abolishing the draft. Nixon toured Europe while the basketball team toured the Monument District and six members of the wrestling team traveled to State compe- tition. Lombardi and Williams arrived in Wash- ington. The student body united in its first as- sembly and in efforts to support the wrestling team and Coach Raines ... It was a year of guest speakers and special projects ranging from an introduction to Black problems, to in- volvement in television government exercises: Crisis Congo a possible result of current Sino-Soviet conflict? . . . Arrests drew atten- tion to possible drug traffic in the area . . The early March snow and the year began to melt away as third quarter slump took its toll. Spring blew in along with college acceptances and the entire atmosphere of the school re- laxed . . . Retrospect . . . Va . Col . 371.8 G GEORGE MASON MUSTANG 19 9 772145
