The most obvious and relevant change was the appointment of Dr. James Fox as principal. Many students who had flourished in the expanding academic atmosphere of recent years were concerned that Dr. Fox would perhaps direct all of his interest towards athletics. The principal felt that a bal- ance was needed at George Mason between all aspects of school life, such as sports, drama, music, art and academics. He felt that both the faculty and the student body possesed great potential for working together and independently to achieve the best possible ed- ucational atmosphere. To advance the achievement of these goals a curriculum committee, under the guidance of newly appointed curriculum coordinator, Dr. Nancy Sprague, was formed. Improvements in the teaching and learning situation were discussed as students, parents and teachers planned for the future of education at George Mason. A vital concern of the committee was to provide a system wherein the individual could be directed to an effective and interest- ing method of learning. 6 Thespians.

The committee visited various facili- ties of this nature in area school systems as part of their research. With the beginning of the school year, students became aware of the increased amount of administrative control over the school. This was made possible by the addition of Richard F. Sanders as Administrative Assistant to the Principal. This change released Dr. Fox to spend more time in the halls and on the grounds to the consternation of some students. In a more prosaic vein, students continued to wonder about the pecularities of the George Mason heating system. After an egg was fried on the floor of the chemistry lab, the wonderment ceased.

This practice was expanded to a greater degree, when the Boosters provided three Greyhound buses for the benefit of students desiring to travel to Charlottsville for the Regional Basketball Tournament. Students generally were more than willing to take advantage of the situation. George Mason was treated to several excep- tional stage productions during the year. Of special note was the dance group’s interpretation of Alice in Wonderland and the Drama Club ' s production of The Miracle Worker. As in previous years, the Junior Class’ “Clockwork Banana” was no more or less hetic than that of any other Junior Variety Show. 10 11 Viewed as a whole, the year was important for two reasons. The school, through a con- sciousness for itself, strove to attain a balance between academics, drama, music, art and sports. Encompassing this was a general feel- ing of purpose of direction resulting, at least in part, from the student’s participation in shaping their own future and the future of their peers. Tempo.

In contrast to previous years, the third an- nual carnival ran smoothly the entire day, unaffected by bad weather. A great portion of the credit could be given to the coordinator, Mrs. Humphreys, who sponsored the individ- ual school organizations participating in the carnival. The student coordinators enlisted Fun Services which supplied circus-type tents and carnival games. The traditional boothes and activities such as the Teacher Dunk and the Jail were great successes as usual. In addition to making sizable profits, the language clubs kept the appetities of carnival -goers well satisfied with French and German pastries and Mexican Tacos. Parachutists entertained spectators with their precise jumping tech- niques, while boothes featuring student-made handicrafts appealed to the interests of many members of the crowd. All things considered, this year’s carnival was a great success, netting sufficient profit to help finance the various clubs planned activi- ties. Miss Cavender finds the teacher dunk water a comfortable twenty-two degrees.

Once again the SCA sponsored the traditional annual Homecoming. The Saturday began with a parade from City Hall to the school and was highlighted by a Decorated Car contest. Homecoming Queen Liz Hoffman was presented with a football and a rose at halftime by team captains Wally Boswell and Andy Schwind. Unfortunately the team lost the game to Loudoun Valley. Later in the evening the court was presented for the Homecoming Dance in the school cafeteria, adequately decorated with last year’s Junior Variety Show backdrop. Mr. Siegfried crowned the queen with flowers to begin the formal dance.

The entire set design was excellent. Break- able furniture and a pump with running water provided realism, however the set design was definitely overshadowed by the acting of each character. The devotion of Captain and Kate Keller to their blind daughter Helen, was readily felt by the audience. Tension generally was experi- enced in scenes involving interaction between Helen and her tried but patient teacher, Annie Sullivan. The insolence of Jimmie Keller often provided comic relief for the involved audi- ence. The climax of the production was presented in the final scene when Annie Sullivan’s efforts proved to be wonderfully successful. At this point, the audience, too, felt the joy of the Keller’s in developing communication with their deaf and blind daughter. Annie explains the challenge of teaching Helen her first word to Mrs. Keller. 23 What Christmas Dance? So that’s what Santa carries around in his bag! The Pep Club undertook the responsibility of sponsoring a semi-formal Christmas Dance. The dance, noted for its lack of attendance, was readily termed a dismal failure. An insignificant number of couples appeared in eveing dress, but all those in attendance were well entertained by “The Corpse Brothers.” Unfortunately, the dance clearly illustrated student lack of interest in school sponsored formal dances. In fact, many students were unaware that the Pep Club had even taken the trouble to provide a dance at Christmas time. It would not be an exaggeration to say the the photographer, chaperones, and band members constituted the majority of the attendance. The Corpse Brothers — live at the G.M. cafeteria. 24 IRC Holds Dinner By Candlelight V Mr. Zimmering finds life under the table amusing. Courtney Parker discovers that’s — a — good — Lasagna. In January, the International Relations Club sponsored a dinner featuring a variety of international dishes. The dinner proved successful in its effort to raise funds to help defray costs for the NAIMUN delegation and was possibly the first of planned dinners including a Chinese carry-out. 25 Jan Edmondson displays her skill on Classical Guitar. “Little Rhapsody in Blue " flows from the piano of Debbie Ames. Glenn Deans, Andy Schwind and “Smitty " Smith cut up during their interpretation of “Mack the Knife.” 26 Mason’s Musicians Demonstrate Talent Mark Hanak and Scott Merkle give a two-man rendition of “Sinister Sister.” The Modern Music Masters presented its second annual musical assembly this year. The well organized program, which had spent beneficial rehearsal time with the light crew, was presented during two assemblies to the student body in January. Because the preformers were alloted only one routine each, more students were able to participate in this year’s assembly than in the first year’s pro- gram. Although the faulty sound system hindered the musician’s performances, the audiences were pleased and receptive to the wide variety of musical entertainment ranging from classical guitar to the comic “Dishwater Blues.” Robert Prichard launches into “Proud Mary”. The attendance for the first band concert of the season was much better than it has been in past years. The band played a varied program which covered Baroque. Classical, Romantic, and Pop music. All selections were performed with the correct technique needed for the music ' s style. The band has improved in public per- formances this year. The balance of the sound has been strengthened and the gener- al attitude toward the atmosphere of a musical performance has improved the band tremendously. 28 29 Folk and Rock Fill Coffeehouse The Coffeehouse crowd enjoys folk and rock n’ roll. Paul Eskildsen begins his set. Mike McIntyre and Ken Herrington perform a few original compositions. 30 Following a Friday night basketball game, the Senior Class sponsored a Coffee House, intended as a social function for George Mason students. Individual committees were responsible for publicity, the refreshments of ice cream — sundaes and cones — and cokes, decorations, entertainment, and clean up — handled excellently by the Key Club. The candlelit atmosphere remained rather quiet and conversational for the greater part of the night. Country and folk music was performed for the passive, attentive audience during the first half of the evening. Warlock presented rock and roll for the duration which livened up procedings. Although the enthusi- asm present at last year’s Ice Cream Parlor was absent, the Coffee House was pleasant and enjoyable. Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble.

Two major committees, composed of parents, students and teachers were formulated this year with the intent of developing an educa- tional program that will be more fully satisfac- tory to the needs of the individual student. The Curriculum Committee was composed of the general committee and five sub- committees. The first sub-committee investigated the possibility of eliminating the distinction between grades seven and eight and forming one “Middle School ' ' in which team teaching would be employed. This would provide greater guidance for the younger students and at the same time allow teachers to assess each students individual strengths and weaknesses. The second sub-committee titled Interdisciplinary Courses and Programs researched the desirability of and need for a humanities program. Also a third sub- committee was concerned with needs of the ninth through twelfth grades. The members explored the possibility of additional enrich- ment and independent study programs . . . NANCY SPRAGUE B.A., M.P.A., Ph.D., University of Michigan; Psychology, Advanced Psychology; Curriculum Committee, and Sub Committees. 34 . . . The Evaluation of Curriculum and Courses investigated the various and most effective ways to evaluate each students achievement. The fifth sub-committee con- sidered the possibility of a quarter credit system which would allow for more flexible scheduling. Basically, the goals of the proposed Middle School and the Curriculum for grades nine through twelve are to provide an educational structure most beneficial to the individual student. The Media Center Committee was formed early in the year to complete and present plans for an extensive Media Center to the School Board by February. The committee visited operating Media Centers in the Wash- ington area to gain ideas on the contents and the physical plant of the proposed Media Center to be built as an addition to the library. Resources such as visual aids, audio visual equipment, and a variety of other resources would aid in developing the individualism and varied interests of the student. With changes in curriculum and the addition of a Media Center the two committees hoped to achieve the goal of providing an effective individualized educa- tion. 35 Thematic English Offered for Junior High And Simon says hands on head . . . Although the elective program offered to students in grades nine through twelve was considered quite effective, the English Department felt that improvement was neccessary. Several teachers felt that they often spent a great portion of each quarter planning for the next quarter ' s course and thought that this hindered their teaching. Thus, all the courses offered during the entire year were presented to the students during their first quarter composition class. Not only did teachers have their course preparation completed earlier in the year but it was also hoped that students benefited from choosing their courses for the next three quarters at once. The teachers felt that the students would be more aware of the types of courses they were interested in and would vary their choices to enable them to experience the different aspects of English ranging from drama to literature to creative writing. Two significant additions were also made in the English department. For the first time an advanced placement course was offered to a small number of seniors. The English skills lab was replaced with a regular quarterly reading course to which students with reading difficulties were assigned for one quarter.

The Future Nurses of America serves the purpose of introducing members to various positions in the fields of medicine, such as nursing, x-ray technology, and clinical health. Thus, most of the clubs’ activities were centered around work and participation in aspects of the medical world. Several members individually served in the Red Cross volunteer program, and many worked as nurses’ aides. A weekly first aid course was offered to the club in January. The club visite d a local nursing home regularly, and planned to visit the Washington Hospital Center School of Nursing. In addition, the Future Nurses donated a great deal of time to providing services to the area. At Thanksgiving they gave a Turkey dinner to a needy family. For Easter they stuffed animals for the children’s ward of Fairfax Hospital. The club also hoped to organize a scholar- ship fund to aid a member entering a field in medicine. 1 FELICIA A. BULKA, School Nurse. The Future Teachers of America were given several opportunities to experience an authen- tic teaching situation this year. For the first time in its history the club was able to visit the elementary school on three different occasions to participate in teaching day long classroom sessions. Each member was assigned to a certain grade in either Madison, Mr. Daniel, or Thom- as Jefferson. Fie then either assisted the teach- er or conducted the class on his own. Because the twelve seniors in the club may soon be entering a specialized field of education, they found the several opportunities to actually teach young students to be extremely interest- ing and beneficial experience.

Mr. Zimmering makes himself heard in class discussion. Numerous major changes and additions were made in the Social Studies Department this year. A major change affecting the entire department was the introduction of a thematic approach in World History, U.S. History, and Government, similar to that of the English pro- gram. Each course began with an overview unit which essentially presented the basics of each course. The following three quarters students chose various themes that most held their interests. Course offerings ranged from the Middle Ages and Modern China in World History to The Game of Nations and Campaign 72 available to Government students. The thematic approach to Social Studies was undertaken with the hopes that ihe pro- gram would allow students to study themes on subjects which interested them as well as en- able them to experience many aspects of the subject that were related and tied together by a central theme presented in the overview course. A new microfilm Lab was the major addition in the Social Studies Department. Twelve microfilm readers were obtained on loan and students were able to work with information that included every issue of Time magazine from 1911 to 1960. The goal of the Microfilm Lab was to allow students to evalu- ate historical events through primary accounts. 42 PAULZIMMERING A.B., M.A.T., Brown University.

Each February a model United Nations is held at the Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. For four days students from across the country and U.S. territories simulate the U.N. councils. In past years students have found partici- pation in NAIMUN to be a valuable experi- ence. This year the turnout of George Mason students was so large that the school was able to represent two countries for the first time — Kuwait in the General Assembly and Malaysia in ECOSOC, the Economic Social Council. Due to the large number of students, Mrs. Johnson and Mr. Zimmering were able to hold frequent meetings in which the students were prepared to represent their countries at the model United Nations.

The International Relations Club was basically the same as in past years; however, due to encouraging, driving support, the club expanded it’s activities and fund-raising proj- ects. One of the club’s money-making projects was a very successful joint IRC-NAIMUN dinner to help finance the participants in NAIMUN. In addition to a wide variety of foreign foods, the meal consisted of Kuiwati and Malaysian entrees, the countries George Mason represented in NAIMUN. The club also continued to sponsor their monthly speakers from various countries; mostly officials from embassies in Washing- ton, D.C. AFS students as well as George Mason’s Paul Helfenstein participated in discussion groups held by the club. JAMES J. WALLS B.S., M.A., Ohio State University.

The newly introduced ALM system encour- ages students to speak the language on a con- versational basis as well as emphasize comprehension in reading and writing. The added experience in conversation may be extremely beneficial to the students of foreign languages who plan on traveling to the country they are studying. In addition, the teachers of the various lan- guages, included studies of culture and life style in their class in an effort to make each langu age course more interesting to the student. ALICE W.

The Spanish Club and Honor Society are operated jointly. The club provides an oppor- tunity for interested Spanish students to take part in p lanned activities while the Honor So- ciety provides a means of recognition for those Spanish students who have achieved out- standing academic status and have developed a strong appreciation for the Spanish lan- guage. This year the Club and Honor Society sponsered the Taco Booth at the Carnival in October. The booth was so successful that the tacos were completely sold out before the Carnival ended. The club and Honor Society also planned a trip to a Spanish of Mexican restaurant. At Christmas time they sponsored the annual Pinata party which introduced students to customs traditional of Spanish festivities.

The French Club and French Honor Society participated together in most activities sponsored by the clubs this year. Each club, though, operated a separate booth at the fall Carnival. The Honor Society sold helium filled balloons, while the French Club satisfied the ajtpetites of the carnival goers with a French pastry booth. At Christmas the Club and Honor Society held the annual Christmas party, and they planned with other clubs in the language department to hold an International Dinner featuring foods from around the world. In addition, the French Club and Honor Society attended French films shown in the area. DORIS J. JACKSON B.A., Howard University. French. French Club Sponsor, French Honor Society Sponsor. ILEANA E.

Because of a smaller enrollment in the Latin classes, the Latin Club operated with fewer members this year, yet remained one of George Mason’s most active language clubs. The club participated in the school carnival, making a large profit from their bake sale. They began the Christmas season in a Latin spirit by holding a Saturnalia party and by viewing the play “Julius Caesar.’’ A Roman Banquet was planned for the Spring in which a Latin atmosphere prevailed with authentic dress, ritual and food. A few members planned to take advantage of their charter membership in the Junior Classical League by participating in League sponsored trips to Italy and Greece over Easter vacation. Latin Club.

Although it remained as an organized club, the German Club continuously allowed and encouraged non-members to take part in the activities. The German Club began the year with an extremely successful booth at the carnival. The booth, featuring a gingerbread house and various other German pastries, made a large profit for the club. Other activities included a bicycle excursion, a trip to a German restau- rant, and an afternoon meeting in which German Christmas tree ornaments were made out of straw. LOIS FRETZ KEENER B.A., East.

Because a large number of seniors reached the level of Calculus this year, the Math department once again offered Math Five. Thus, students were able to enroll in Advanced Placement Calculus or the regular Calculus course. The two classes were scheduled third period, enabling the students to choose the class which moved at a desirable pace. Both classes took the A.P. exam given in the spring, but members of the A.P. Calculus class were eligible for a greater amount of college credit. Students of the Functions class joined sev- eral members of the Calculus classes to form the Math team. They competed against Fairfax County schools every other Wednesday. It was necessary for each member to utilize his math- ematical background in the meets under stress. Math Team.

Money raised from the book sale at the school carnival financed the club ' s main project. For twelve dollars a month the Cadence club was able to support an orphan for one year. Among other activities, the club provided services to nursing homes and charities, as well as to the school. At Christman time it joined with the S.C.A. and Keyettes in a canned food drive benefiting the Salvation Army. The Cadence Club has been successful in past years as a service club and hopes that it will be able to continue next year. Cadence Club. First Row: Debbie Locke, Dora Philpot, Debbie Williams.

Senior Class Sponsor, Key Club Sponsor. The Science Department continued to expand its program this year with the addition of a Biology 2 class. Basically, the class was aimed towards twelfth graders who desired an enrichment program in biological science. In the course the students used no text book, instead, their class materials were college ref- erence books located in both the library and the classroom. The Biology 2 course required both independent thought and action on the part of the students in lab work and class work which consisted of lectures, demonstrations and discussions. Additional opportunity for independent study was provided during free periods and after school when students were free to utilize the laboratory facilities.

As a group, the club went on several field trips including a visit to the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C. During the year several of the Science Club members participated with other students in a campaign to preserve the woods located behind the school. The students felt that the woods provided a sanctuary for nature as well as a place that the biology students could observe wildlife. In addition, several of the members worked on projects for the annual Science Fair. „ na ' " vri ' — nr FLORENCE EMERY B.S., University of Florida. Eighth Grade Science. i , p Science Club.

The art students and teachers were satisfied with the variety of art courses offered for the first time last year, and thus students enrolled in the same courses, ranging from painting and drawing to sculpture, again this year. The seventh and eighth graders w r ere introduced to all forms and techniques of art, while students in the advanced Studio Art Class were able to specialize in the area or areas of art that most held their interests. Although the course offerings did not change, the Art Department hoped to continue improvement on the art program. By second semester the art teachers were researching the possibility of lengthening class periods or al- ternating class meeting days in hopes of creating a more flexible program that would be suitable to the individual student’s needs.

The purpose of the recently formed Aesthet- ics Club is to provide the environment of George Mason with a more individualized physical sense. Usually this has meant brightening blank, sterile walls with interest- ing and colorful designs. The efforts and goals of the Aesthetics Club have created a very enthusiastic group of peo- ple who are interested in improving the physi- cal aspects of the school. Although the club is artistically based, members are not required to have artistic ability. The Aesthetics Club feels that the most important aspect of any member’s ability is his willingness to help. Each member’s opinion is not only requested, but respected. John Vanderheyden reaches an artistic impasse, when he finds he has put his brush in Elmer’s Glue. 59 CRAWFORD GROGAN B.S., University of North Carolina. Home Economics. JENNA MILLER B.S., West Virginia University. Home Economics. For the second year the Home Economics Department operated under the curricular structure set up last year. Several courses were again offered on a quarterly basis — Inte- rior Decorating, Gourmet Cooking and Teen Foods. Because of increased interest Home Ec III was extended into a semester course. Basically the course content dealt with gifts and accessories to knit and sew. The seventh and eighth grade units in Home Ec. remained the same, although a party unit was offered at Christmas time in which the students organized a party for themselves. Only one “all boys” class was held — an eighth grade Home Ec. class, but other courses such as Gourmet Cooking and Teen Foods were open to both girls and boys.

No changes in curriculum took place in business classes for the advanced courses offered — Stenography II, Clerk-Typist II, and Data Processing II — provided students with sufficient opportunity to either fully develop their proficiency or to gain a background for further study in their specific field. Most importantly, the business classes continued to open doors for both part-time and full-time job opportunities. IOYCE J. LOWRY A.B., Pembroke State College; M.A., University of Virginia.

The Electronics, Drafting, and Printing classes remained extremely active this year working on school oriented projects. Students in the electronics classes planned to develop and set up a speaker system in th£ auditorium. In addition, several of the students studied to pass tests for either First, Second, or Third Class license qualifying them for various jobs in the fields of electronics. The Printing classes were responsible for Programs used at concerts and assemblies as well as for printing issues of the school’s newspaper and literary magazine. The Drafting classes worked primarily on individual projects but one student, Andy Schwind, designed a floor plan that was to be considered for the proposed Media Center.

Senior High Band, Junior High Band Majorettes, Drill Team. The band performed this year with an enthusi- asm that had not been felt among the members for a number of years. Much of their new excitement and added interest could be attributed to the fact that the administration and school board approved, for the first time, an exchange trip be- tween George Mason and a band in another state. Early in the year the band began to plan for the exchange and worked together with parents and the Boosters Club in raising funds. The band also worked diligently toward their performance in the Band festival in March. It was hosted for the first time by George Mason. Because of the freedom granted to them in the form of the exchange the band performed even the routine half-time shows on the football field with a goal in mind. The members felt a definite sense of accomplishment this year and hoped that the feeling would continue next year. Senior High Band Officers.

The students performed numerous concerts during the year, not only at George Mason, but at various other functions as well, such as Citi- zenship Night at City Hall and Family Night at Dulin Methodist Church. The choir began the year by participating in the annual “Pops” Concert and soon followed with a program of Renaissance, Classical, and Baroque music which featured music for re- corders, flute, and harpsichord. Over Christmas vacation, the choir performed for the Methodist Hermitage, presenting a variety of Christmas music, and followed that performance with a concert at the Arlington Temple Church.

Students in the seventh and eighth grades were given opportunities to participate in sports activi- ties outside of class with the introduction of an in- tramural program during free periods. After school, students were also able to participate in activities such as bowling and ice skating through arrangements made between the school and the Bowling Alley and Ice Skating Rink. Because of the interest. Advanced Phys. Ed. Classes were again available to girls and boys in the eleventh and twelfth grades. The Department also continued its full time Driver’s Education and Behind the Wheel Courses. One new change in the Physical Education Department was the requirement that girls take showers. For a ten dollar fee gym students were provided with a year long towel sendee. ARNOLD SIEGFRIED B.S., Rutgers University; M.A., George Washington University.

It also appeared that the two clubs were successfully solving problems that had built up from past years. The Keyettes who had previously been plagued by noninvolvement from its members presented a clear set of objectives and committments for each Keyette to follow. Early in the year, the Keyettes started working with a Head Start Class. The girls worked with the children individually and in groups and gave parties for them throughout the year. The Key Club spent a great deal of time recovering from disorganization, but it successfully remained active as a sendee organization. Club members worked at the Falls Church Cerebral Palsy Center. At Christmas time the Key Club worked together with the Keyettes in volunteering their sendees to the Salvation Army. Key Club.

This year, the National Honor Society held its inductions in a school assembly in mid- December. The members decided not to obtain a speaker for the inductions, but instead to have various members give their own ideas of the four concepts of the society — leadership, scholarship, character, and service through speeches and poetry. Twenty-five active members were inducted from the eleventh and twelth grades as well as five tenth grade provisional members — a new adition to the society. As in past years, the society battled with the problem of whether to let the society stand as nothing more than an honor group, or to become more active in achool activities. It did continue, however, to send out letters of con- gratulations to students who qualified for the honor roll, and created a sizable treasury by running the “Odd-Mod” booth at the carnival, eliminating the payment of dues by new members for this year. Also, members of the National Honor Society participated in tutoring Junior High students during the year. National Honor Society.

Although a degree of disorganization and a limited staff prevented the LASSO from a bi- monthly printing, each issue contained a lengthy and varying content. The LASSO staff successfully covered all aspects of school life an well as representing student opinion. The editorials were not limited to school activities but also involved controversial social and political issues. In addition to major issues, the LASSO printed several smaller papers throughout the year which were devoted to a specific topic. A two-page Sports Edition included the activi- ties of all the teams and a column on “Athletes of the Month.” Lasso. First Row: Anne Dexter, Anne Peret, Barbara Checknoff.

This year the MUSTANG instituted its sec- ond major change in format in as many years. Last years major change, the “colorful” commentary section fell by the wayside and in its place was inserted the “Fine Arts” section. The purpose of this section, as concieved by the editors, was to provide a place to exhibit student art, special coverage of the school’s fine arts performances, students creative writ- ing and student and faculty views on educa- tion. There was also a change in editorial man- agement with the use of three editors-in-chief instead of the usual one. Other changes included a five page cut in overall length and an expanded twentyfour page supplement. MUSTANG EDITORS: Herman Menzer; Sponsor, Mary Beth Betts, Anne Dexter, Paul Gregory.

All students were urged to share ideas or express complaints to the Council in hopes that the SCA would be able to represent a greater majority of the student body. A major petition presented to the SCA concerned the issue of improving the cafete- ria’s food sendee and general appearance. The Student Council was involved in numerous other activities including the sponsoring of the Homecoming Dance, School Store, and Christmas Decoration Contest. The SCA also planned the annual Car Rally and hoped to introduce an Extra Studies Pro- gram.

Two of the team’s three losses were at the hands of Fauquier which, because of its size, will move out of Geroge Mason ' s district next season. The team apparently will not suffer from the loss of graduating seniors because many members were ninth and tenth graders. In addition, the young team members were given ample opportunity to play and, thus, gain ex- perience. Without a doubt, the future for the teams of the next few years appears to be extremely bright. Mustangs have to shoot over a hands-up defense Jeanne Lacy heads for two points. Carmen Salgado powers a shot to the rim. 140 f 1 A Girls Second in District Girl ' s Basketball Team.

The combination of an in- jury to fullback Dan Hoke and the loss of the first three league games proved to be a morale buster. The Mustang’s were remarkably inconsistent throughout the year. They lost twice to Yorktown after defeating them as many times last season. The team crushed Herndon 6-0 after losing to them 4-3 earlier in the year. Time was certainly a deciding factor as the Varsity lost in the last minute of play six times. David Fredenburg and Alan Schick want to make sure the ball doesn’t get through. Paul Helfenstein delivers the ball to the other end of the field. 142 And Early Losses Paul “The Crazy Cossack” Gregory lets loose a corner kick. Mike Harbour takes the ball past an O’Connell player.

Before the season began, District coaches predicted that the George Mason football team had little chance of obtaining even one victo- ry. But the team was well -prepared to meet its various opponents through the thorough scouting of the rival schools by Coaches Lund and Gambill. Unfortunately the Mustang’s offense was plagued by fumbles during the entire season which often occurred in key playing situa- tions. But the defense, anchored by seven se- niors, played excellently most of the season and prevented the team from finishing last in the district standings. Although the football team will be losing several seniors, other teams in the league will suffer the same disadvantage and the hope of a District title for a promising Mustang team may become a reality. All right now, spit it out!” exclaims Jim Gathercoal. Wally Boswell coordinates the attack. 147 Varsity Football Team.

The ability to control the tempo of the game helped this year ' s athletes to be the first 66 Lackey 80 GM basketball team in five years to make regionals.

The grapplers were forced to surrender precious points because of a forfeit in this weight class every match. Injuries and tough competition from AAA schools added to the season’s woes. However, help is on the way in the form of a strong J.V. team. This, in addition to the fact that the team is only losing one senior, makes a cheerful picture for the future. Three wrestlers traveled to ‘State’ and returned victorious. Andy Schwind captured first place in his weight class, while Brian Schwind and Larry Tapper finished fourth and fifth respectively in their classes. Due to these accomplishments the Mustangs finished tenth overall in State Competition. Junior Varsity Wrestling Record Junior Varsity Wrestling Team.

For the first time, George Mason’s Cheerleaders were under the complete supervision of the Athletic Department. This change relieved the girls of the responsibility of raising the funds to pay for their uniforms. The Cheerleaders also acquired two new sponsors. Miss Cavender and Mrs. Wilkinson. The teachers worked with both the Varsity and J.V. Cheerleaders and accompanied them to each game. The girls added a lively spirit to the girls basketball team games by providing a cheering section. But, because of their busy schedule, the Cheerleaders were not required to attend away wrestling matches. For the same reason, a request to cheer at Math Meets was turned down. The Cheerleading Club, composed of all the Cheerleaders, sponsored the traditionally successful Jail at the school Carnival. 160 Cheerleaders Sponsored by Athletic Dept “That’s no way to kill roaches,” says Pam Millan.

Dr. Fox believed this lack of enthusiasm in school activities to be a serious problem and began early in the year, to encourage students to support the ath- letic teams. Apparently his views were well received by students who were very dissatisfied with the apathetic atmosphere. The Pep Club’s membership increased greatly, as did its activities. Throughout the year the club decorated the halls and lockers with signs which rallied behind individual team members and declared that the Mustangs were Number One. The red and white signs, created each week by Pep Club members, made students well aware of the existence of George Mason ' s competitive sports. In addition, the Pep Club sponsored the Christmas dance. Although the dance was financially unsuccessful, the club showed its interest in providing activities for students. The Monogram Club consists of boys and girls who have lettered in a Varsity sport. The club sponsored the annual Spring Sports Banquet in which participants in Spring sports were acknowledged and awarded for their performance. MONOGRAM CLUB. First Row. John Boaz. Adrian Wilson.
