His sound advice and counsel have helped us through many dilhculties, and his sense of humor has added a touch of good will to many of our contro- versies. As well as heing a sincere and energetic advisor, Nr. Blauth is ll real friend to all of us, and we are deeply thankful to him for all he has done for us. DEIJIIII-XTIII 5 To hir. Parrish, who quietly kept us on the straight and narrow path for three years, through uproarious class meetings, rainy picnics, and violent ar- guments over rings and pennants.

When not peering from behind his camera, "Aber" can be heard grunting and groaning on the wrestling mats, having been a varsity wrestler for three years. Versatile Dean played leading roles in both our Senior and Junior plays, and as photography editor of the year- book spent many hours pondering over its pages. Fishing and a good dance are his ideas of a solid time. JEAN D. ANDREWS MARNE HIGHWAY, MOORESTOWN, N. J. Jean plays a leading role in every riot, constantly pulls tricks on her poor roommate, and can't stay still unless she's reading a magazine. She has two ambitions in life: to grow to five feet, and to teach children, her great love. Little Andrews has been of invalu- able help in her backstage work, and her warm enthusiasm about everything has won her an abundance of friends. BARBARA LEE BAHR THORNBROOK AVE. AND PINE RD., ROSEMONT, PA. When a streak of lightening with red hair dances by saying "l'm a little moron," you'll know it's Bobby. She's the gal who's walked away with the dancing honors for three years now. Possessing a mania for clothes, she "hasn't a thing to wear" even though her closet will never shut. A mainstay on the hockey team, Bobby leans toward modeling for the future. .s 'A 4 . i 1' .. .1 4 '- i i THOMAS EDWARD BALDWIN V 335 BROAD STREET, RED BANK, N. J. Baldy was expert at his basketball managing, and he saw action on the gridiron in the fall. One of our abler actors, he contributed much to many dramatics class presentations, and Baldy certainly belongs to the well-dressed element in school. Red Bank, his home- town, always seems to find a niche in his conversation, though, as a member of V-12, Baldy'll soon converse in the Navy. ANN LOUISE BECHTEL 202 MORNINGSIDE DRIVE, TRENTON, N. J. If you've seen anybody with reddish hair, a dimple, a twinkle in her eye, and food in her mouth, that's Becky! She lives on jellied doughnuts and milkshakes, and eats constantly. Back in the good old days, she used to cover miles in her little Ford convertibleg don't tell anyone, but she still does. Once she even had an escapade with a garbage can-tsk, tsk, such taste! Six MARSHALL A. BERNSTEIN PHILMONT CLUB, PA. With many a cackle and snort, Bernie can be frequently heard narrating his famous tales of Philmont Tech. With a nose for the news, he's proved himself a keen sports reporter. An avid follower of most sports, Bernie loves to lay bets on his choices. In action, ten- nis is his forte, and he's scaled-the top in short order. . ' xt i I5 N: J V' . "D vi" i V' It . 5 A X JAMES F. BOGARDUS, JR. X 11+ CORNELL AVE., SWARTHMORE, PA. Tennis and wrestling thrived under Jim's executive ability, and for his three years here he has carried off the honors in the Time tests. jim acts as patron saint of G. S. hospitality, and his winning smile convinces the new students that this is the place to be. Libe is his main haunt, either as a diligent assistant or in qu-est of booklore. ELIZABETH ADA BOND NEWTOWN, PA. A member of the day students' bicycle brigade, Betty is a blond Bond with a ready laugh. Her favorite habitat is Newtown's Town Hall where she wiles away most of her free time. For Betty, 'Ocean City is the place, swimming the sport, and eating the perfect occupa- tion. During school hours you'll probably find her in the Girls' Social Room "just messing." 60 b' I ,, , flu! bgsx fv'f fo0"':"7 ", '.K+L A TWV o,,,t 5.4 Pm'-vs, cvtfud- I, A ' JOH. R. BOOTH, JR. LQ.. -un. i. 518 CRESHEIM VALLEY ROAD, CHESTNUT HILL, PHILA., PA. Boothie's infectious chortle is often heard, for he's a hearty and joking member of any group. He's one of G.S.'s more professional stage hands, and a set'll go up or down, in short order, when Boothie's on deck. Dressing well is one of his prides, and you'll often see him executing smooth dance steps during social hour. Life leans lightly on Boothie, for he appreciates it to the fullest extent. ,Vf44,f f6f".4', , 6561.7 2 -V'a4Gff1ffm ..,,.fn-o'-fy i,11:1,44a.i,. f:c.4ff', , ilffq W7 vamp ,Wg DAVJD BORING ,J - ' f varwf '17, Q From way down South comes our Dixie, bringing a grin that's won him countless friends. Senior class president and head of the Boys' A.A. are only a few of his numerous accomplishments. A familiar sight on the gridiron last fall was Dixie tearing through tackles, but his heart 'belongs to baseball-incidentally, he's captain. But in spite of all these accomplishments, he lives for that day in June when he can return to old Virginia and possum huntin'. Seven EVI BOSSANYI FEASTERVILLE, PA. Evi's the girl with the lovely red hair who always arrives on the dot of 8:20 Via the George School express Returning this year as a post graduate, she's really a grammatical whiz, topped OH by a literary talent. She's enchanted over anyt-hing musical, with an accent on Erno Rap'ee. Evi's cherry greeting is foremost wherever she goes. WILLIAM DAVIS BOYER ss ORCHARD DRIVE, ROUTE NO. 6, HAMILTON, OHIO Bill is known for his taciturnity, but actually he's packed with all human knowledge concerning airplanes. A camera zealot, he's one of the Camera Club's officials. No one knows how it works, but anyhow Bill is a participant of that "June-ending" war-game on second Drayton. A one-man roomer, Bill pursues German when he's not making models of warships or learning the latest in aviation. . , I . 5 r . . L' in fx ,i Rn .

Up on Fourth Center you'll never fail to hear joyous cries of "Brit, oh Brit!" Happily, Brit and her cronies drool over her newly- knit sweater-it only took a year or two! Her form swimming was a familiar sight this winter, but oh, how discouraging she can be when she always hands her work in on time! Our language whiz is heading for Middlebury next year. ELLEN BROOKS CARY 311 CHESTER AVE., MOORESTOWN, N. J. L's intellectual whiz with the solid Quaker background, Ellen's great enthusiasm of the moment is in Europe and medical work for the reconstruction. Excelling in athletics, as well as academic activi- ties, she played a nimble right wing on the hockey squad and man- aged the swimming team, working off excess steam in the evenings with lively square dancing. Bryn Mawr is the next step, and then the world of the future. Eight SONIA STERLING CHALIF BARNSDALE RD., SHORT HILLS, N. J. Tickle Sunny and she giggles, pat her on the head and she coos. Talk about geology or anthropology and she's entranced, mention music or English history and you can't shut her up. Other passions include Lanz clothes, fresh air, knitting standing up, and just living in general. She's a butterball with oomph who can't keep her feet or tongue still a single minute. WILLIAM ANDERSON CLARKE, JR. WALLINOFORD, PA. A steadfast rooter for the capitalistic system, Bill is destined by the stars to a swivel chair on the stock exchange, and a desk to put his feet on. Active athletically on the soccer and swimming teams, he has carried many responsibilities in school life, as chairman of Central Council and perfect in Orton. Handsome hero on the G.S. stage, Bill is the Doffjuan of the Senior class. li aff JT if f' -. , l Q Q Nyfjy Sgfe,N12mwZB9Ie,P,Oga2fgY,yft t .M sux .l- ll J glazing' is one of our "beeg" gi9lQ"A 5?foot6Qfmch, staunch Rhode flllslan erlhjhe skates at la perfectibri.

Coxie loves to cut things out Cnot paper dollslj and hopes someday to find scrapbooks enough to hold all her clippings.

Looking very serious until that infallible twinkle appears in her eye, Dottie covers the campus with a varsity limp she no doubt gained on the hockey field or basketball court. She's on Central Coun- cil, President of Girls' Council, and equipment manager for basket- ball. A lover of cinnamon, Hshing, jackets and skirts, and anything in the wilds of Canada, Dottie will take her warm friendliness to Swarth- more. CORNELIA RINGGOLD DASHIELL FRANKLIN Ava., HARMON-ON-HUDSON, N. Y. Lovely, dark-haired Cornie is the perfect definition of glamor in every look and action. But t'here's more to her than that, for her work is neat, precise, and near perfection. Cool and collected in everything she does, Cornie's greatest passion is to hike. When asked about her plans for the future, she has only one answer, and we're not surprised to hear it-"Housewifel" VIERA DE GHIZE MT. PLEASANT FARM, COCKEYSVILLE, MD. Called everything from "Geez" to "Goosegg," you'll remember Viera's deep voice and hearty laugh. The fourth center doors will bear the scars of her knives long after she has taken her plaid shirts and marvelous personality to the University of Michigan. She first gives the impression of a George School bouncer, but don't let that bother you, she's really one of the nicest people in school. AGNES MAY DEWEES R. D. No. 2, DOYLESTOWN, PA. Aggie is one of those rare persons who is truly modest about her myriad talents. Her miniature kitchens and jewelry demonstrate her deftness with a penknife and her eye for design. Also a veteran gardener and a first-team hockey halfback, she demurs at any sug- gestion of praise, Aggie, with her lively, humorous outlook on life, certainly will excell in her proposed continuation in art study and work.

'x i ELIZABETH FOX EASTBURN 1JoYLEs'roWN, PA. All the Eastburns went to George School, and Sis is the last but not least of them. Upholding her family tradition, she was co-captain of the mermaids and star swimmer on the team. Renowned on the hockey Geld, too, her love of sports is even greater than her passion for crossword puzzles. Petite and popular, Sis has plans for Skid- more and physical education. ELEANOR COPE EMLEN AWBURY, GERMANTOWN, PHILADELPHIA, PA. Wherever the birds Hy, there look for Ellie. A rugged individual, she scorns the train and so bicycles home to Germantown.

Pres- ident of Girl's Council for one term and member of Central Coun- cil, she is a lively and congenial addition to the class. ISABELLE FUSSELL EWING WASHINGTON LANE, RYDAL, PA. Transplanted from the day student clan to the rank of boarder, Flash is marked by her frequent telephone calls and her love for fig newtons and milkshakes. She is always busy with her Work for the yearbook and the News, besides being class treasurer and a var- sity form swimmer. Although aiming for Wellesley and a literary career, s'he'll probably end up in front of the dish pan!

Her famous blue type- writer print appears weekly on the bulletin board in the form of Cen- tral Council minutes, and fortnightly as hot copy for her dear old News. Holly is a veritable literary genius, loves to square dance or walk in the woods, and will take her original ideas to Radcliffe next year. CAROLINE BERNICE GARVE 314 KING AVE., COLUMBUS, OHIO Though Ki has an aunt in every county in eastern Pennsylvania, she is forever true to Columbus. As a member of the Hospitality Com- mittee, she welcomes new students every Saturday, and down in the store she sells innumerable popsicles. In spite of the fact that our knitting friend is a hall representative, Ki's at the bottom of most pranks on Third West. Twelve s ' I ,. 1142!-f".Q In ff',f , V I WILLIAM GAWTHROP R. D. 2, WILMINGTON, DEL. Bill seems to be one of George School's organizing minds, for he was one of the originators and main backers of the noted snow- birds. Also an intimate of the musical realms, Bill contributes to this life as the Carnegie leading light and member of the clarinet trio. But in spite of his musical ability, Bill's heart is set upon a medical career. OPHELIA JANE GILL RICHBORO, PA. Gillie falias Opheliaj certainly has the knack for getting into trouble, She's a smooth dancer, but we can't forget the time she "double-jitterbuggedf' O.J.'s slacks are a dream, but it's Gillie's fault that "you meet the nicest people on Nuisance Squad." She is always ready for a good laugh, and usually at the bottom of it. ELEANOR STABLER GILLAM BUCK HILL FALLS, PA. Continual chatter in her latest accent or pidgeon French, strings of the latest QU jokes, and an almost "subversive" sense of humor, mark Gillie as one who views the world with an eye for mirth. Surely a home for destitute animals will be but one of her many projects. Eleanore Duse is Gillie's alias, the stage is her hideout, and her general direction is to further this inclination. DOUGLAS BROOKE GILPIN KENNETT SQIIARE, PA. ln the dorm, Brooke's room is always a center of activity, because of his ready line of "bull" and his large collection of jive records. On a. diminutive scale, Brooke is one of the school's style leaders with his smooth wardrobe. His small talk is well flavored by vehement defense of the home town, Kennett Square. x"'-r ,X ...L , ' Q.-D HT i AJS' e3rGr4'ls-'7"'-5" 's'kc'Lx.i' KLX I 'E . f L E f u v0"N""" "Y-' .

Playing a guard position, he factored highly in the success of the football team. The tan he acquires on vacations is the constant envy of the student body. He plans to enter Princeton in June and pursue his first love-politics. Thirteen in ROBERT PYLE GRAVES 215 HARMONY RD., WEST GROVE, PA. A decided expert in all angles of the radio field, Bob practically lives with his equipment in the Retford basement. A co-manager of the baseball nine, Bob's another who hails from Kennett Square way. I-Ie's a behind-the-scenes man when it comes to movies, and the one that fixes those untimely breaks in the cartoons. A confirmed bicyclist,+he'll venture forth, even, on the coldest day.

J. Hank's ski-jump nose protrudes from a hockey goal in the fall and from under a basketball net in winter. As business manager for the News, her room is always piled high with newspapers, and she likes skating and horseback riding. When she says "I feel nuts," she's putting it mildly, and Hank would win any prize for laughing longly and loudly. - LUCY ROGERS HAYES 323 SWARTHMORE AVE., SWARTHMORE, PA. Lucy is constantly taken with fits of innoxious laughter, accom- panied by that very distinctive shake of her shoulders. When not Hit- ting gaily around the campus, followed by a mystifying scent of some- thing exotic, she can be found furiously sketching fashions on scraps of paper, or delving into worldly social problems. Lucy is brightly cheerful and completely enthusiastic, even in the face of the last bell. Fourteen G4 ,bl iw ...ig ma' we L L50 515,383 V965 R R. ocyrbwjyvg' E ON, N.

Bill sallied forth from G.S. this winter to enter Northwestern University, as a member of the Naval Reserve, in order to get an early start in college. His acting ability was demonstrated many times, including leading roles in the junior and Senior plays. A member of L-43, Bill has a concern for better international relationships, and hopes to enter diplomacy when his military duties have been com- pleted. gj.-,bf if 5 'Q ,,,, 0 A., - NORMAN BERRY HOLLINGSWORTHN ' 102+ WEST 8TH ST., PLAINFIELD, N. J. Not satisfied with the obscurity of conventionality, Norm is known to George School as a fellow with plenty of pep and originality who can always be found in the center of a crowd. Maybe it's just because he's a "natural" on the stage and off t at he can do that .,l f V' doubled-jointed square dancing.

Prolific concerning "daddies" and post cards, she comes back from Florida each January with a new tan and a new man. Right on the beam with a warming friend- liness, our form swimmer is a perfect advertisement for her famous Camp Culvermere. DAVID YERKES HUGHES 150 N. PROSPECT AVE., MADISON, WIS. Dave appeals to the intellectual in all he does. Coming to us from Wisconsin, he brings along an uncanny sense of humor coupled with a strong power of reasoning. A poet of no mean caliber, Dave's verses have been admired in the News. Quiet but keen, he's made us envious of his diverse talents. The Ambulance Corps and Dave will join forces soon after graduation. Fifteen DOROTHY HUMPHREY IRELAND NEWTOWN, PA. lf you pass the Ireland farm and hear a mighty "Heigh-ho, Chunky," you know Dot is at home. Otherwise, she's probably toil- ing in shop, or curled up in the highest fork of a tree, plowing through a biography or an adventurous tale. The lure of the un- known beckons her into the science laboratory and to the University of British Columbia as an adventure in 'higher education. MARGARET ANNA JAMMER 909 OVERTON AVE., MORRISVILLE, PA. As a day student, Penny is one of those rare people who actually drives a car these days. She's a fiend for any kind of history with its dates and dynasties. Blond, vivacious, and friendly, she loves to ice skate and just plain talk. After George School, Penny will invade Bucknell, then embark on a teaching career in the field of history. ye , ' '. Yin ' ' i -'U Cz-7"'. '. - U ' ff T , li ' Y" 5 EDWARD A.

Though most prominent in her professional knitting of sweaters in many a pastel shade, modest Jo Anne is a very busy person around the campus, caring for faculty brats, keeping libe "in order," and spreching deutsch, to note but a few.

Potty is frequently seen about the campus under a small blac derby, and many is the time that the halls of Main have trembled from his machine gun laugh. Not satished with being on the footbal A team, he also captained the basketball five. Spending m st of his free time collecting records, Potty is known to cut a mean rug on the dance fioor. X .ab- Sixteen ' - f. BARBARA JUDSON KINDERHOOK, N. Y. An outstanding social-minded leader is Jud, her bantering and facetious manner sometimes belying sincere enthusiasm for all kinds of social improvements, from the social life at George School to re- ligious education of underprivileged children and settlement work in slums. Equally game for a good time and hard work, Jud adds life to L sequence, and provides juicy apples from the farm in Kinder- hook. ELIZABETH KELLER ioo E. STATE ST., DOYLESTOWN, PA. Efficient Betsy counts noses in the dining room. She is an all- round girl--her talents ranging from the hockey field and co-captains of the swimming team to the dance floor. She helps set the styles at G.S., having introduced the first pair of espadrilles here. After working at the Abington Hospital last summer, Bets is sure that nursing is to be her career. HELIA MARISE KENDERDINE zss s. STATE sT., NEWTOWN, PA. This friendly red-head hails from Newtown, where she is a member of that Kenderdine clan. One of those nice people and a straight S student, Marise lets off team playing the piano, jitter- bugging, or swinging a tennis racket. She has served ably on Girls' Council and the A. A. Board of Control, and it looks like smooth sailing ahead for her in her chosen profession, teaching. f fl -' KEDWIN B. KLEiN, JR. i 41 ASHLAND AVE., PLEASANTVILLE, N. Y. S An excellent punter and a clean tackler, Ed shone on the grid- iron this year, and he formed a reliable cog in the machine which drove the Buff to an almost perfect season. The strong and silent type, Ed hails from Pleasantville, and is a staunch member of L'-1-3. Baseball's another of his favorite sports, and you should hear him plug for the Pleasantville Tigers! EUGENE C. KORBECK, JR. 3322 N. 18TH ST., PHILA., PA. Wherever fun, rowdiness, or merriment reign, Korby's sure to be there, too. A fearless fullback, Gene distinguished himself on the soccer field last fall. A swimmer of immeasurable speed, especially the 220, Bud captained the team this year. The 100-yard event was enlivened by his winged feet, though we suspect he puts in action secret physical laws which he has discovered in the physics lab. Sevenleen JANET LAIB 19200 STRATHCONA DR., DETROIT, MICH. A tribute to the maximum that "hair is woman's crowning glory," Janet's copper tresses are famous. Of books a connoisseur, she herself wields an agile pen. Without Janet a bull session is incomplete-a doughnut unappreciated, and how midway and blackouts will miss her dexterous fingers on the piano! Her future life will he colorful and interesting, no matter in which direction it turns. JOAN LARSON 907 AUGUSTA RD., WILM1Nm'oN, DEL.

Originally in the day student ranks, Don was a Drayton man this year. With the theater as first love, he performed ably on the boards in both the Junior and Senior plays. Don feels the automobile is here to stay, and scrapbooks on all cars ever conceived are piled high in his room. A British viewpoint puts Don in the middle of most arguments on the state of the nation. A sf 174--:,A1lJ VL Zfasfs-, fl'-"""- ' 'J' L'!1f.-,Q'.'-i GERTRUDE JANE LOUD 2 HIGHLAND ST., CAMBRIDGE, MASS. Loudie might appear to be as meek as the white mice she covets, but, oh boy, when she lets loose! I-Ier riotous themes on family life back home in Boston show that her pet peeve is Brenda. Her in- terests include art and Harvard Q"Don't print that," she warnsl. Occupational therapy is 'her aim in lifeg we hope the morons will ap- preciate iher marvelous sense of humor as much as we do. WALTER K. MAMMEL NEWTOWN, PA. Walt's bicycle has been carting 'him to school for three years now. I-Ie has seen action on the wrestling mat, and, come spring, he turns out with the track team, though his favorite sport is skating. The Drayton Council thanks him for his able handling of the day students. Walt is very interested in conservation and hopes to take up forestry at Penn State.

His favorite occupation, to the extreme discomfort of others, is singing off-key in the showers. Al has an inhuman capacity for food and eats anything that comes his way. Always sticking up for Kennett Square in his good natured manner, his main ambition in life is "to sit behind a desk and write checks." g x 4, , .gf 3 . to ' Y ,7 M . , ' ,- TJ Q' .4 .1 ' V ' cj. i"-'."j'-- J . .,.. .-, . . . -I .

We wonder how the chemistry lab remains whole after the violent experimenting efforts of the two Mancill brothers. 1 J S A SLM THEWS 4 T ., PA.

Hailing from New York, Sue is famed for her athletic ability. Besides captaining basketball, her lope across the hockey field was a familiar sight each year. Under the influence of root beer, her dry sense of humor pops out most unexpectedly. The field of medicine will certainly have a valuable addition when Dr. Sue hangs out her shingle. s, - ' .

WILLIAM HULL OSLER 340 EAST 57TH ST., N. Y. C. Tennis is Bill's forte, and his long stride and smashing stroke have earned him the captainship of the team. An admirer of Glenn Miller and Tommy Dorsey, Will owns a large selection of popular records. His suave manner has made him a favorite on the G. S. stage, and his sense of humor has worked equal wonders on the campus. ROBERT WILSON PARKER 5711 40TH AVE., HYATTSVILLE, MD. Bob's definition of heaven is a dozen chocolate eclairs, but he's no cream puff. As one of the knifemen in Mr. Sutton's Gestapo, Bob's the boy behind the man behind the little blue cards. He goes dreamy- eyed over Harry James, and the future may see him as a member of the Navy Air Corps. JAMES EDWARD PAXSON 219 vAssAR AVE., SWARTHMORE, PA. With his messed-up hair and ready grin, Jimmy's out there on the gridiron every fall, skirting the end. As co-captain of this year's track team, he ably sprints around the Cinder runway each spring. His pep and energy were turned to good use when he was Junior class president, and George School will long remember Jimmy's uproarious antics. Twenly RICHARD C. PAXSON 166 CASTLE AVE., WESTBURY, N. Y. Dick left the George School ranks during the winter to cast his lot with the Navy. lt was a lucky break for the Soccer team that he stayed until the end of the season with them, but his absence did leave a gap in early morning shift. Champion cornhusker of the George School stage, "Pax" was a familiar figure at the farm. ALISON MARY PICKARD 1839 ONTARIO PL., N. W., WASHINGTON, D. C. English Alison, who has been in this country but a few years, after living in Geneva, still loves tea, and her convivial parties are well-known. An international viewpoint and an infectious sense of humor, often unexpected, distinguished Alison, and greenhouse-tending is not the least of her versatile talents. A constant aide in the Infirm- ary, she hopes to secure a niche in medicine, with Mount Holyoke as preparation. I HENRY COMLY PICKERING, JR. WOODBOURNE, PA. Pick is a master at wrestling and a member of those day students. He wouldn't be himeslf without his little white car with its hoarse coughs and tinny rattle warning defenseless pedestrians of its zig-zag approach. His favorite class is physics, but he seems destined for some- thing along the agricultural line. .IU aa,-4 Dauclan-14.491-farlf-44'4't"8Al"' IM. . - ' ........f.g....f....f.f.f..m-.AA-1fP1P'M DONALD SCARFF PRESTON 4147 BEL AIR, MD. We will be sorry to see Ducky with his rousing good humor leave after such a colorful stay at G.S. Loyalty to Maryland, a southern joviality, and infectious enthusiasm distinguish Ducky as one of our outstanding personalities. We'll miss his spirited cheer leading, but he'll be leading many a good cheer for Victory, 'ere he re-enters Drayton's walls. MARY ELIZABETH RIDGE BELLEVUE AVE., LANOHORNE, PA. Like your sweaters big and your jackets from Jake Reed's ?- then you're a pal of Liz. She's the local girl who made good with a bang. Her favorite hobby is eating-and best known expression "But I didn't come in to eat." Blessed with boundless energy, Liz is one of the school's most enthusiastic golfers and the live wire of many a good time.

Well-known for his beaming face and knowledge of family his- tories fgeneology, to be exactl, Calvin has served the Religious Life Committee well, as a good Quaker. Our Calvin stole the stage lime- light several times this year, and he'll never be forgotten for his private F.B.I., by wvhich he can supply anyone with cousins. Earnest Rivertonian Calvin has great enthusiasm for workcamps and religious conferences. MARY LOUISE ROBERTS BLACKWOOD, N. J. Sprightly Louie is one of those after-breakfast gourmands, or perhaps, it is just an attachment to the dining room, cultivated by pushing a truck around on shift. An enthusiast for music, Qprobably in- fluenced by her roommate, the rice birdj and for fun, she has joined every song activity available She's a hockey devotee par excellence, and, it seems that she has a leaning toward sports in general. ZELDA DORF ROSENBLUM 737 PARK AVE., N. Y. c. That wide, friendly smile, bright red -hair, a New York drawl, a delicious wardrobe, and a passion for Park Avenue, all add up to make our Zelda. She played a leading part in the Senior play, has a great urge for a good rhumba and a steak dinner, and loves to sketch fashion designs. To finish off this versality, Zelda plans to take up engineering at Drexel. HARRY ROBERT ROSS CREEK RD., RUTLAND, VERMONT 'I A ,.',Roscoe'Vis one,9f-I those skiing "sha11ks"' from Vermont.

This cheery Baltimore Oriole has made quite a reputation for herself as a songstress in mixed chorus and the girls' glee club. She is often found collecting pink and blue cards in the dining room or helping out the nurses in the infirmary, and we predict that Florence Nightingale will be in for some competition when Reds begins training.

GLORY RUTH SCHWANTES ass FOREST AVE., LARCHMONT, N. Y. Glory's a faithful German student, spending her in-between-time knitting for the American Friend's Service Committee. She's done an admirable job as head of the Girls' Social Guild and is often found collecting the money at its annual auctions and movies. For the fu- ture she's looking towards Barnard, and we hear she would like to be "Dr. Schwantesf' JOHN PAUL SCHWANTES ess FOREST AVE., LARCHMONT, N. Y. Destined to be Secretary of the Treasury, John has been faith- ful in managing any pecuniary details that come to the fore at George School. A patient caretaker of the Senior Class' finances, john has also labored over the "Hourglass" bookkeeping and as a clerk in the bank. As prefect in Orton, John has proved himself capable of any executive positions. ALFRED SEGAL 26 ARL1-:IGH RD., GREAT NECK, N. Y. As assistant editor of the "Hour Glass" and sports editor for the News, Fred has contributed immensely to George School's publi- cations with his illustrations and writings. Possessor of a fine ward- robe and a gift for cosmopolitan wit and repartee are perhaps the reason for his reknown.

CATHERINE JANE SMITH 5544 NORTHUMBERLAND ST., PITTSBURGH, PA. Kitty is constantly "having kittens" for various reasons, until some kind soul comes along to scratch her back, reducing her to contented purrs. Slhe spends most of her time calming down her roommate and enjoying life in general. Adoring "Night and Day", lamb chops, and especially Pittsburgh, Kitten hopes to take her warm friendliness, neatness, and competence to Swarthmore, where she will study psychology. ESTHER J. SMITH 11+ JACKSON AVENUE, WEST GROVE, PA. Smittie's that gal with the distinguishing walk and a pert smile. Italian spaghetti and meatballs are absolutely tops on the menu, and roller skating is her first-ranking sport. A collector of shoes and Glenn Miller records, she has a deft hand in the hair-dressing line. A hard-working student operator, Smittie would like to continue this, or, perhaps, teach the primary school grades. MALCOLM KELLOGG SMITH SHORT HILLS, N. J. Malcolm's a clever concealer of his talents when he's in public, but when among intimates he is known for his accordion and clarinet melodies. Classical music is his choice when it comes to listening to somebody else. Discussion is his prime pastime, and he's a man with opinions well formulated. NANCY ROBERTS SMITH BALTIMORE PIKE, SVVARTHMORE, PA. Calm and cheerful, even before breakfast, Nancy's many activi- ties leave her sparkling and unperturbed. A sports devotee, she man- aged basketball and starred in both hockey and tennis. As chairman of the Social Committee, she is constantly hunting records and ideas for Social Hour. With a personality brimming over with enthusiasm, Swarthmorean Nancy heads to the home town to carry out a family tradition there. Twenty-four PHILIP H. SMITH, JR. PAWLING, N. Y. Down deep in Drayton's cellar, there is a room which boasts of all night lights and Phil. Good arguments on literature Kin fact pure Thomas Wolfe epitimizes Phil's one and only ideal in the author linej and discussions on the diverse merits of Harvard fill him with a mighty good feeling. By now, G.S. knows that Harvard and Boston must be Phils idea of paradise. GEORGE DONALD SPACKMAN, JR. COATESVILLE, PA. From the top of a hill in Coatesville comes Don with a leaning towards sketching and a taste for both popular and classical music. He is also a partner of the centipedes and darkness in the Drayton basement. A trusty air raid messenger, poor Don braves all weather on his way to Main. He'd like to begin pre-med work this summer, if army duty doesn't call. PATRICIA LINDA SPRAGUE ANNVILLE, PA. Breathless and with a twinkle in her eye, Pat buzzes in waving a yearbook receipt or the latest air-mail letter. Many committees have had the benefit of her boundless energy, and she is a one-woman pub- licity and propaganda campaign for jitterbugging, purple lipstick, hand knit sweaters, boys with "butches," and summers on Cape Cod. 1 1' I 't I .0 ,ta Y ,, f ,K , 'bt ,. , . . . , A L1-",'.

His senior essay and editorials have shocked the conservative element, but that inimitable wit has won him quantities of admirers. Anyone would know from his cosmopolitan air that he's one of New York's sons, and Chuck would fight to the end for that city's Tribune. JEAN KATHRYN TAGGART 313 E. WASHINGTON AVE., NEwTowN, PA. With wings on 'her feet Cand on her coatj Jean does the hockey team proud as a speedy center with a store of tricks. Pretty and petite behind a steering wheel, she's a driving day student with a twinkle in her eye. And when Jean yawns in French class, she's probably dreaming of the Army Air Corps or a career as an interior decorator. Twenty-five SHIRLEY MAE TATTERSFIELD 338 E. WADSWORTH ST., MT.

But under her placid exercise burns the divine fire, for Janice spends her study halls in scrawling free verse, fif she isn't busy wrestling or throwing knivesl. Her Hare for chemistry will be of help in later years when Janice becomes a medical technician. ELEANOR BARKER WARD 315 CEDAR LANE, SWARTHMORE, PA. An unwavering bead on Swarthmore, the inveterate early bird Qfifteen minutes, on the averagel, and a blush to rival the rose are only the beginning of Wardie's more distinguishing characteristics.

This train- ing can be effective only through some system which gives the student an oppdrtunity to shoulder in school responsibilities of the same sort that he will have in his later life. Democracy practically applied in the small community of the school is the best practice for democracy applied to the large community of the world. The voice of the student is heard in the administrative field of the school through the Central School Council and the dormitory councils of Drayton, Orton, and Main. These organizations of student government are going through a continual process of growth and expansion of powers. Several signal steps have been made this year in their development. The Central School Council is a widely representative body of all parts of the school, its members coming from the building councils, the faculty, and the student body at large. It acts in an advisory capacity, considering many school problems, study- ing and discussing them from all angles, and offering suggestions for possible solutions. Notable this year were several combined meetings of the Central and Executive Coun- cils, in which were reached stronger mutual appreciation and understanding than ever before of the different points of view of the administration and the students. The Council has particularly sponsored the Newtown-George School Relations and the War Adjustment Committees. ln co-operation with the former, the councils of New- town High School and George School exchanged interesting visits. The Council has worked with the laundry and the store when various difficulties have arisen throughout the year. Many significant hours were spent in discussion of George School's social life, the relation between faculty and student outside of classes, and such perennial topics as the penalty system. The Drayton Council greatly enlarged its Held this year to make up for the loss of several dormitory teachers. It takes charge of checking boys out to Newtown every night and assists Mr. Sutton in making out the term reports for each student in be- havior, care of personal property, and care of room. It can recommend penalties for misbehavior. The Orton Council is much like that of Drayton in the last two duties. This year for the first time the perfect system has been used, and with great success. Four senior boys live in Orton and act as hall teachers and advisors, setting a good example for the younger boys. Bill Clarke, Dave Fogg, Steve Dunthorne, and John Schwantes initiated the system very effectively. The Girls' Council is the oldest of the building councils and the farthest along in its development. As Well as enjoying the powers of the other two councils, it can administer discipline and penalties in its own right and through Wing Councils. lt has charge of late libe for girls and the Lost and Found Department for the whole school. This year, as a new project, it took over Nuisance Squad. Another outlet for the student voice is the George School News, which presents every two weeks a kaleidoscopic view of school life, its sports, entertainment, and cul- tural activities. ln its editorial columns are aired school problems, and student and faculty ideas about them. Under the leadership of Chuck Stabler, the News has seen a good year.

Students of somewhat similar ability, interests, and purpose in life are grouped together for this experience in a sequence. These groups have not remained static since their heginning hut have heen changed and adapted to meet the needs and interests of the students and the changing times. The oldest of these sequences is Division L. The purpose of this division is to achieve more rapidly and thoroughly a mastery of the fields of learning necessary for superior achievement in college and graduate school, It concentrates on the suhjects that serve as tools of learning in higher education-languages and mathematics. The American Relations Sequences, which were started this year, have ahsorhed the curricula known formerly as divisions S, C, and lf. It is the school's Illost effective answer to the demand for a curriculum fitted to the period of transition through which we are passing. lts purpose is to center the pupil's attention up-on society as it has developed in North America, with reference to its sources in Europe, Teachers of ling- lish, social studies, religion, and art will work together in teaching the literature, art, history, geography, and religion of the United States and our present relation to l'furope, Central America, South America, and the Far lfast. Also initiated this year, Division NS is a sequence in natural science and mathe- matics. It is designed to meet the needs and interests of those students who have strong leanings toward these fields. The principle of separate sequences does not promise any higher academic rank to graduates in college. hut it teaches the student correlation of thinking, learning, and living. The importance of aesthetic and religious interests and of health is stressed. The students have a greater respect for study and a hetter understanding of its part in the reconstruction period. lt is notahle that the government has approved the George School curriculum. especially IH regard to its science content, so that we have adequate preparation for the "air age" in our present plan, without extra war courses. T11 irly -fi-re llramaties The curtain rose almost a dozen times this year, and fell, for the most part, amid loud applause. The plays presented, farces, several more serious ones, and a few pure literary pieces, comprised altogether a well-rounded program. They were handled by either of the veterans, "Wimpy" Frescoln and "Uncle Jack" Talbot, or by "Muggs" Dolph, a newcomer, and always these three were ably assisted by the students. From our Senior class comes a long line of stars, including Eleanor Gillam, Sam Haines. Bill Osler, Bill Clarke, Dean Abercrombie, Joan Larson, Shirley Tatterslield, and the new-found Calvin Robbins and Norman Hollingsworth. First to be presented were two short plays put on by the dramatics classes, Stephen Vincent Benet's literary piece, "The Devil and Daniel Webster," and Booth Tarking- ton's "The Trysting Place." On December 5, the Senior class presented M. Barrie's "The Admirable Crich- ton." The story deals with a group of aristocrats who, when shipwrecked, find their position reversed with that of their butler. The meaning, too deep to be easily put across, was that, under the law of nature, the best man, not the richest, will rule. A noble job was done by Dean Abercrombie and Shirley Tattersfield, who fall in love. Gigi Dirks and Zelda Rosenblum, the other ladies, Sam Haines, their father, Don Leach, and Bill Herrold made a good supporting cast. Eleanor Gillam's portrayal of Tweeny, a kitchen maid, showed again her fine dramatic talent. In january, "Out of the Frying Pan" by Frances Swann was presented by Mr. Talbot's veterans, all of whom were perfectly cast for the purely funny and slightly crazy story of three boys and three girls who try to get on the stage. Their amusing antics, followed by troubles and solutions, met with much hand-clapping from the audi- ence, as Pat Jenkins, Joan Larson, and Cornie Dashiell played the girls, Norman Hol- lingsworth falias Stanislavskyl, Bob Ross, and Mr. Talbot, pinch-hitting for Bill Clarke, were the boys, Ruth Ann Hoos, Shirley McCormack, and Hugh Cronister ably accepted the confusions they met from the six stage-struck boarders. Victor Wolfson's rather serious play, "Excursion," was presented in February by Mr. Frescoln's dramatic class. The tale of a runaway excursion boat and its down- hearted passengers was hard to portray, but a long list of students who seemed made for their parts executed a fine bit of acting. Among these were Ira Kind, captain of the ship, Calvin Robbins, dispeptic sailor, Ray Garrett kind salesgirl, Jeanne Chamou- laud and Mr. Fraser, lovable Mama and Papa Fitchel, Doris Johnson, embittered blond, Ruth Ann lylartin, her little sister, Dave Goodman, the cynic, and Bill Osler. a virtual Romeo. Just before spring vacation, a very unusual play was given by the students and faculty combined, and was very well presented. It was "The Night of January l6." the whole play being a trial for murder, judged by a jury of composed members of the Thirty-six l l S audience picked at random. lt is based on the real story of a rich financier who faked his death and fled to South America when his complicated business schemes had failed. The plot was intricate and the outcome very debatable, but the jury finally ruled that the defendant, the financier's secretary, was not guilty of his murder. The problem brought forth controversies all over school that lasted for days. The secretary was beau- tifully played by Stevie VVeber, Mr. Fraser and Sam Haines were competent lawyers, and a long line of very talented Witnesses included hir. Blauth, Sheldon Nlitchell, Cal- vin Robbins. Bill Usler, Fred Segal, Janet Nlaxtone-Graham, Roz lfarle, -leanne Chamoulaud, and Pat Jenkins. The Whole cast was universally acclaimed a hunch of fine actors. Un a Friday night in early April, lN'Ir. Talbot's class presented Noel Coward's "Hay l"ever," crazy story of a slightly batty family and its frustrated week-end guests. The play featured an all-star cast of G.S. veterans, Norman Hollingsworth was the son, -loan Larson, the daughter, Hill Clarke, the father, and Pat jenkins, the dramatic mother of the family. Shirley Tattersfield, Dean Abercrombie, Ruth Ann Hoos, and Hugh Cronister ably played the four guests, and Zelda Rosenblum, as the dissipated maid, finished off this successful performance. Other plays presented in the spring term included Tolstoi's beautiful "XVhat lllen Live By," directed by Ifleanor Gillam and appropriately presented in Sunday morning assembly, the uproarious junior play, "You Can't Take lt VVith You," Kauf- man and Hart's Pulitzer's Prize winner, and Clifford Goldsmith's popular "VVhat a Life."

His canvas is laden with wonderful performances, and we shall never forget the deft brush-strokes when the mixed chorus sang "The Recessional" and the nostalgic "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes." The Christmas scene was harmoniously engraved on our minds when the Girls' Glee Club and Mixed Chorus sang "The Holly and the Ivy," and the orchestra por- trayed "Christmas Fantasy." Various lighter sketches were on display. Miss Moyer, the infirmary's White Angel, interpreted familiar melodies on the mirimba, an unusual instrument, in an assembly. Joel Raphaelson and Sue Williams posed for Mr. McCreary also, and delighted us when Joel played the piano, and Sue her harp, during other assemblies. But the piece de resistance was the colorful Sunday evening when Mr. McCreary focused his palette on an excellent recital, Lyn Kershner, with the orchestra, played a concerto for piano and orchestra by Joseph Wagner. Lyn's almost professional inter- pretation won a blue ribbon in Mr. rMcCreary's series of paintings. In George School's fiftieth year its first clarinet trio was created, and the school eagerly welcomed Chuck Gilbert, Bill Gawthrop, and Roger Minthorne, when Mr. McCreary presented and conducted them. We are pleased to note that Mr. Hart in- cluded mention of this in his history of George School. The subjects of this excellent painting gave two performances in Newtown, accompanied by Roy Welch and Sheldon Mitchell, who added their violin duets to blend the colors more skillfully. Newton Graham aided with his cello, and Joel Raphaelson on the piano. The possibilities of variety were extended when the Parents-in-Council presented two kettle drums and a new bass fiddle for the use of our artists. The Spring musicale was an able performance. We particularly liked the way Newton Graham accompanied the Mixed Chorus on the cello as they sang "The Swan," by St. Saens. Mr. McCreary's art reached its superlative height one Sunday morning when he and his wife etched into our memories an excellent program of piano duets. All in all, we leave this year with many pictures of talent and skill. Here's to Mr. McCreary and all under his tutelage who cooperated so memorably. . .'4,sl"'l'Q'u fi' 5,5-:is a u ,,'1'f3a.e',.eT,fR Hullnq the Hnhhyhnrse I v Yi' TT. Hobbies have been a part of George School almost as long as the "doughnut " K ,.., lv a ' xpThey grew out of a real interest in school work. Class time was not sufficient to satisfy X-Q. 'Rthe more enthusiastic students, so several teachers, realizing the importance of creative l v' Ay 1 F .Ja .5 'ifxxf Ns activity, opened the resources of their departments to all who were interested in extra work. Shop is the oldest and one of the most popular hobbies, in fact some of the more enthusiastic wood-workers spend all their free time in that den of sawdust and varnish, building a cedar chest, a sail boat, or a canoe. But for those with less ambition, the lathe turns out a steady stream of smaller objects. ln the student-built kiln, aspiring artisans create many products of the potter's wheel, as well as models of heads and figures. The best of these clay objects are later fired and glazed. Under the direction of Mrs. Seegers and Miss Date, leather, wood, and the available metals are turned into wallets, belts, bookends, trays, and jewelry. In the studio those who sketch or paint can find an ample supply of artist's materials. The sewing room's large collection of looms lures many hobbyists, who quickly learn the surprisingly simple technique of weaving under the direction of Miss Dashiell, Thirty-nine and create numerous products, ranging from bureau scarves to rag rugs. There, too, needle work enthusiasts make the sewing machines whirr and the needles fly. The Camera Club serves as the safety valve for those numerous camera addicts who would 'burst if they couldn't get together now and then. This year the Club, spon- sored by Mr. Burton, has really clicked. Although a few have joined just to use the well-equipped dark room, the majority have happily indulged in the orgy of contests, movies, exhibitions and "get-togethersf' Under the sponsorship of Mr. DeCou, a group of agriculturally minded students have formed a farm hobby. They work on the school farm and take frequent off-campus trips to hear lectures on soil conservation, rotation of crops, and similar subjects. In the fall, the "farmers" also sponsor a corn husking bee, which provides fun for all and pumpkin pie for the winners. The Girls' Social Guild, under the leadership of Miss Haymond, meets regularly as an extra-curricular activity. With money raised through dances, movies, auctions, and food sales, the Guild contributes to charities at home and abroad. Mr. Swayne offers the use of his home on Friday nights to those who like to spend a quiet evening playing chess and checkers. The newest and most timely extra-curricular activity is the aviation group, which offers prospective flyers a chance to "get on the beam." In connection with this hobby, Mr. VanHorn gave a short course on aviation during the spring term. lin-Etlinq Social life at George School used to be as carefree as a funeral parlor! Fussees were herded into our assembly room, where they talked and chatted, with the vigilant faculty pratically breathing on their necks. But, due to the efforts by the student body and its counterpart, the liberal faculty, a change was brought about. Now, social life is not regarded as a boring time-killer, but as a source of amusement for almost all our student body. Dancing during social hour is probably the most popular way of relaxing. On many evenings, either the Girls' Social Room or Drayton shows evidence of a dance of some sort, and couples gliding about to the solid strains of Harry James are the rule, rather than the exception. Most class dances at school were held in Sutton's cellar, the Drayton Social Room. Could it be those dull blue lights? The class functions this year were unusually success- ful, for nimble minds and hands arranged original decorations and entertainments, with the familiar doughnuts and punch or cider as sustenance for the lively gatherings. Hallowe'en and Valentine Dances in the Gym included everyone. A dimming of the lights, a few streamers, and timely paper figures, and our decrepit gym was trans- formed into a festive hall. Spot dances and other special events rewarded the winners with anything from candy to an invitation to sing a popular tune. Highlights in any school social year are the class proms. This year's dances carried on this tradition of successful Senior and junior efforts. The Senior Prom was held in Philadelphia's Union League, and the dance was proclaimed the most lively thing that has hit that reactionary hang-out since Willkie came out of the West! We have been entertained by forms of amusement other than straight dancing- ping-pong, radio, cards, and other sundry games also liven up the social hour. Other hardy groups who revel in the social hour are the square dancers. Even though they always return minus a few boys who suffer bruised bones in the melee, they seem to enjoy this rugged form of fun. A Square Dance Festival at the end of April spread the gospel of "mountain recreation," and much enthusiasm was engendered by these introductory sessions. ' Toboggan and skating parties, plus snow-ball fights, also found their place in the students' packed winter schedule, while Sunday nature walks and "holy rolling" ibi- cyclingl gathered disciples in the fall and spring. Social life: a transformed animal! Many thanks to a diligent Social Committee headed by Nancy Smith and Miss Bates. Forty llnrm Life ln all George School there is no place like the halll It is the nucleus of all those unregistered extra-curricular activities which are so very popular, the nearest thing to home, it is the haven to which each hard-working hoy and girl returns for relaxation. lt is the melting-pot in which every individual learns to live with his neighhors in an intimate community. 'llhere is found every type of relaxation of hody and mind, from sweet sleep to hot hull sessions to rowdy water tight, at any time of day and night, excluding, of course, study periods. There one recovers from the day of school, regains individuality, and throws off that worldly cloak of maturity and learning, to rejoin the gang in a natural atmosphere, free from all strain. Perhaps the most striking sign to an outsider of the seething life within the dorm- itory is the cavalcade of music issuing from every window, every door. From one come the lively strains of the latest jive, setting nimble feet off dancing, nervous fingers drum- ming. From another Hoats the dulcid melody of a Bach sonata or the stirring refrain of the theme song of the Army Air Corps. The most significant activity on the hall is the hull session. ln these spontaneous discussions the tongue has free rein, and topics range from the cussedness of inanimate penalty marks to the natural phenomenon of RPL, from the intricacies of the George School social situation to glohal prohlems of race and creed, from the tickleness of the one and only to the hest methods of winning rhe war. ln these hull sessions grievances are aired, deep, deep thoughts are hrought out, and student opinion is formed and developed. But words are not the only things mouthed at these gah fests-what is food for the mind without those solid jelly doughnuts? l"n1'ly-o ne l gi., KX I e ' ea, X u I iraq .+ t-at el ' ' i " QQ Titus? x,.f H 24 - - f xx with I, ,,-. it 5 W ' Jyvix il ll , A l ' X . 5 T -, N 1 i' 'Til X' X 1 51 ,,llll.iltkK,53i5'5il.3'i 'S-fx 0 130.011 it f Cooperative work was initiated last year by small groups in school, and it has swung into action on a school-wide scale this year. It was a project in line with trends toward greater self-sufficiency and had the effect of placing the burden of the daily chores upon the shoulders of the whole student body, rather than just those few with scholarships. The jobs cover a large variety of phases of school life. The pantry and household workers make up the largest units. "Shift" takes care of setting and clearing off tables for meals and helping in the kitchen. The household squad keeps the school buildings bright and shiny. The grounds crew is made up of rugged individuals who do odd jobs on the campus, such as chopping wood and tending the rose garden. The library is efficiently managed by a large staff of library assistants, and the telephone boasts of quite a few student operators. There are also many miscellaneous jobs, such as roll taking at meals, assistant to Mrs. Hall and Mr. Sutton, milk lunch, putting up the Hag, and keeping the dining room tables supplied with flowers, and paper baling. This kind of work has helped greatly in raising the spirit and morale of the school, giving every student an opportunity to contribute directly to the community life. The Emergency Work Squad, not a part of co-op work proper, has been formed to fill in the breach in the kitchen, laundry, and farm left by the general shortage of labor. This is made up of all students who are interested and who have their studies well enough in hand to carry it. With parental permission they are recruited for work on neighboring farms as well. The squad is divided up into ten units. Each unit takes one school day out of every ten to work at twenty-five cents an hour. Forty-two ,fx x .jig X.

The scoresheet shows live victories, one loss, and one tie. Strengthened hy a large group of returning veterans, the Buff and Brown started slowly and gained momentum as the year rolled on. Opening with a 7-7 tie with Lang- horne and a 2-ll victory over Lamhertville, the team went into high scoring gear to crush Peddie "B" 27-0 and Haverford -I. V, IZ-0. A temporary letdown in pass defense enahled Swarthmore Freshmen to win 20-U and ruin our hopes of an undefeated sea- son.

Reporting to Coach Talbot last fall were only four veterans. Around these, of whom three were hackfield men, the team had to he built. The lettermen were Captain Ken Brick, Bill Clarke, Roy Heisler, and Dick Paxson. Supplementing this group were Seniors Gene Korheck, Bob Parker, Ducky Preston, Bill Gawthrop, and others, while underclassmen included Bill and Charlie Hough, Dick Miller, Chip and Ted Paxson, Heinz Wiegelmesser, Bill Craighead, and Hugh Cronister. Among this group there was no one who had real scoring abilityg and only twelve goals were scored hy the forward line, which lacked aggressiveness I'n0St of the fall. The season opened in disappointing fashion as three games were dropped in a row, to Lawrenceville, Penn Freshmen, and Frankford High all hy the same score, 2-0. Next, the Haverford J.V.'s were defeated 4-l, Peddie heaten 3-U, and Swarthmore Freshmen downed in an exciting game 3-2. This fine streak ended the Georgians' win- ning string for the year. Moorestown Friends won I-0, as did Friends Select. Returning alumni, hoasting many college players, swamped the Buff 6-lg then West- U town and Central High both defeated the Quakers, -l-U and 2-l respectively. A large group of returning vete- rans make prospects hright for Cap- tain-elect Chip Paxson and his mates. lfurfy-fee Hunks Averaging a superla season, the girls' hockey teams won ten, tied one, and lost only two out of the thirteen games played with outside schools. The squad was composed of six teams for the first time in George Schoolls history and despite the disturhed sched- ule, the second, third, fourth, and fifth teams came through with undefeated seasons: the first and sixth teams succumbing only once. Captained hy lfllie limlen, the first team started their season with a victory oyer the alumnae.

The only defeat was dealt out hy a strong Springfield High. which was prevented from putting more than one goal across, thanks to Manager Betty YVilson, goalie. Seeking to regain their prestige. the Buff team came through in a heautiful game with YVesttown for a 2-1 victory. Betsy Keller, as halfhack, played exceptionally well, and lfllie lfmlen an Nancy Smith were scorers of the day. 'l'heir final and hest game of the year was a 3-fl defeat over Germantown lfriends in which Nancy Smith made two of the goals and lfllie lfmlen one.

Handicapped hy the lack of experienced swimmers, the Georgians could seldom keep pace with their more veteran opponents. At various times, Sickles, Hollingsworth, and Brown were unalile to com- pete. The season opened well enough with an easy +7-I7 victory over the Swarthmore Uollege Hitting a slump and slightly oversconlident liecause of their opening yic- tory, the mermen were soundly trounced in their next two meets hy Valley Forge Rlilitary Aradeniy, -Hi-20, and Princeton University 3rd team, 50-15. ln the following meet, a weak Abington squad was downed 55-l l, everyone finding little difticulty in winning. 'lihis proved to he the last victory of the year, however, for Girard College triumphed Sli-IU, and Peddie ended the season hy also sinking the wehfeet, 38-IQ. Leading the swimmers in scoring was Captain "Bud" Korheck, free style ace. Other lettermen included Captain-elect Sickles, Hollingsworth, Garner, Holi Vernon. YViedeke, Rawson, and Brown. Sicltles was a consistent performer in the lireast and, lint for illness, would have amassed many more points than he did. 'lihe outlook for next year is lirighter than usual, only Korheck and Hollingsworth graduating. XVith any new material which might he coming in, the squad is almost sure to show a hetter record than did this year's inexperienced team. !'i0f'f-1'-Ililll' E I 9 l l lrls Swlmmmq The mermaids came through with flying colors this year, hut their schedule, Cut hy transportation and measles, was comprised of only four meets. Of these four, the first three were won hy fairly large margins, and the last lost hy a very slim one. Nlorale was aided invaluahly hy two wooden Chinese gods with stomachs to he ruhhed for good luck. The swimmers started out with a 43-32 victory over Upper Darby, keeping the lead well in hand, particularly in the relay field. The meet with Lower lllerion was more evenly matched, both teams sticking close together until the Buff came across with wins in hoth relays and thediving, final score standing 44-28. The Georgians easily pounded Swarthmore Freshmen +2-33. The final meet with Abington H. S. was a close battle to the finish, the Quakers finally losing in the last and deciding event, for a 40-ll defeat. Co-captains Sis lfastfmurn and Betsy Keller stayed in top racing form all year, Sis heing high scorer with twenty-five points. Breast stroker jean lflmer tallied nineteen markers for the year, and Cam lfuzhy, next year's captain, Alice Duncan, and Nlary Reese remained old standhys all winter. As for diving, Beth Haines ex- ecuted a fine example, winning in every meet hut one, and Manager Ifllen Cary was another dependahle. Those successful form swimmers included Flash lfwing, Ruth Ann Britton, Manager-elect Nancy Lang, Barhara Bushnell, Ruth Ann Hoos, and Kitty Smith. lllwch gratitude is owed to Coach "Starry" Talhot, who may have worn her prodigies out a little, hut look where it got them in the end! lfiffy A ' I ' . . 4' fn .I-1. l""l1 f ,L ' A X- , , Q 'W' -. ,,,- r an IJ l , :QL f ',v4"'. ,Q ,-1 ' . , .',,,.'g, ,' LL -- -Jig at gjj'..k'l"' ' X' in tl M Wrestling lVinning tht- Penn lnvituriim 'llOlll'l12III1CI1f, the wrestling tczuu, under coach Srzinlcy li.

The team will practically have to be rebuilt, as only two lettermen, Captain Bob Parker and Charlie Hough, are returning from last season. Coach Sutton plans to use Parker in the hurdles, and Hough in the high jump. ln addition, he has Dave Hughes and Roger lllinthorne in the mile. Dave Harry and Ted Paxson, pole vaulters, Gene Korbeclc in the sprints, and Walt Mammel in the hurdles. Newcomers who have been placed so far are Bretherton in the sprints and Farrier in distance running. Others given a chance of making the team, hut not yet placed, are Ross, Schwantes, Hob Vernon, Lou Vernon, Wllittexxitmre, Klills, limmert, Chambers, Coates, Byron, White, Schaab, Brown, Weigelmesser, VVeideke, and WVright. VVhen questioned on prospects for the season, Coach Sutton said that they were only fair, but that the boys are interested and have possibilities for development.

VVith only four lettermen missing from last year's squad, the prospects are fairly bright. Competition for the six singles spots is quite keen with .lay Reese, Captain Bill Usler, Hugh Cronister, Steve Uunthorne, lVIarshall Bernstein, Dick Curtin, Fred Segal and Ted Nelson, all lighting for these positions. The only newcomer who has a good chance of joining the group is Jack Nlason. The rest of the squad will he made up of hoys who rank high on last year's ladder or newcomers who have shown a great deal of promise. The progress of the team will depend on the weather and time availahle for practice. Two volun- teers, Jay Reese and Hugh Cronister, will he seeking to protect undefeated records from last year. The other letter winners returning are Osler, Bernstein, Dun- thorne, and Preston. The chance of a successful season are good, hut, with a more difficult schedule than last year, it is hard out.

A Bday 22-VVesttown lkflay 29-Simon Gratz Fifty-four Girls' Spring Athletics "ln the spring a young girl's fancy lightly turns to thoughts ofnibaseball, hockey, tennis, archery, badminton, golf, basketball-and lots more! For girls' spring sports cover a variety of fields. Many of the classes are run by the students them- selves, adding a very democratic touch to the schedule. The season began when the Seniors lined the baseball field in a violent wind. Then followed a baseball game, played by a number of lime-covered ghosts. Senior baseball continued all term, the girls coaching themselves. Sue Mclntosh acted as captain, and Dot Ireland as manager. Ar the same time "Thwingie" coached several teams for each of the other classes, and toward the end of the year great rivalries were carried on between them all. Tennis. coached by "Starry" Talbot, was the most popular sport, 160 girls going out for it. The courts were rolled into shape much earlier than usual, the tennis com- mittee being headed by those veteran players, Betty Wilson and Mary Reese. Three large groups took spring hockey, run by "Thwingie," and next year's hockey squad will be chosen from these groups. The Seniors had a hockey class all their own, run solely by Ellie Emlen, Betty Wilsoii, and lVlarian lworse, executives of last fall's team. There was an abundance of archery classes, run jointly by "Muggs" Dolph and students, also of badminton, again run entirely by seven of our badminton fiends. "Thwingie" taught one basketball class, and other sports included golf and Senior Optional. In the latter, Seniors had their choice of hiking, golfing, or whatever struck their fancies. Fifty-five Fifty-six Then and nw To us, the Class of 1943, George School does not appear to be nearing its fiftieth anniversary. Looking at her today, we cannot tell how great her development has been, and how it came about. A semi-centennial is a date to make us realize that George School has been growing, and yet many of us have no idea what George School was like -before we arrived here. Recognizing this lack, the Hourglass decided to assemble a few of the facts that are salient in this growth, and to attempt to demonstrate their contrast to our current life and customs. As George School opened on November 6, 1893, students entering beheld a dif- ferent sight. Main was the only building on the property, aside from a horse and carriage shed. In fact, having everything under one roof was something that G.S. boasted about. The boys roomed in the West Wing and the girls in the East Wing. There were also dorm rooms on the first floor of the West Wing. Fourth Center was entirely made up of classrooms, and the present line of oflices on the first floor East was also used for this purpose. At that time there was no balcony in the assembly room and two classrooms occupied the space where the raised section is now. The Girls' Social Room was, until comparatively recently, divided into an art classroom and the library, hence the girls' use of the term "late libe". In the second year of school, Orton and the farm were added to George School, and in 1895 the gym appeared, very much the same as it is today, but without the swimming pool attached to it. Drayton was built in 1903 when the new policy went into effect that all boys should be housed outside of Main. The short time required to enlarge the student body so much that a large new dormitory had to be added demonstrates that G.S. in its youth grew very rapidly. Retford arrived on the scene in 1906, so that at this time George School was looking just a little more like what we know today. Bancroft completed the picture in 1931, though use of the second floor was not begun until 1934, due to lack of funds for its immediate completion. The three R's and other subjects were taught then and now, though even today constructive changes in teaching methods are constantly taking place. Shop facilities for manual training were here from the beginning, and this type of work was a most progressive feature in the curriculum of the day. Even then G.S. eagerly introduced seemingly radical changes, helping to blaze the trail for advanced educational methods. The only member of the first faculty remaining around George School is Mr. Nutt, who was the manual training instructor, though many of us knew the late Jesse Holmes, of Swarthmore, who taught chemistry and physics in the first years. The use of musical instruments, at that time, was against Quaker traditions, so that they were forbidden at school for many years. In those days there was much fun made of the School Committee, which appeared at school much more frequently than is the custom today, and feeling was especially tense because of the prohibition of musical instruments. One time, for instance, a group of boys sat on the station fence, awaiting the Committee, which was arriving on the train. A grand welcome took place, consisting of a serenade on paper musical instruments of all shapes and variety. Dancing also was a latecomer on the scene. Only in 1925 was dancing allowed, and then under the pretext that it was instruction, a far cry from today, when dancing and music are one of our favorite and accepted recreations. How that first Commit- tee on George School would have frowned at the hep-cats and jive addicts! In the '90's there was "fussing" only Saturday nights and one other night each week. Social life even today is a problem, and it was just last year that a real demoli- tion and reconstruction of the moth-eaten situation took place. There was no varied, planned activity, and this stilted system continued until recently. Anyone here now would scarcely recognize the dining room as it was in the early days of school. Table seating remained the same all year round, and there were ten people at each table. The teacher at each table invited his group, and this often led to hurt feelings. Another complaint was that such a system hindered students from F ifty-seven getting to know more people in school. This table seating was given up in 1920, and since then we have had the monthly changes. The dining room itself was much smaller, occupying the main part without the East and West dining rooms. Boys were absolutely forbidden to wear sweaters to any activity except athletics. Quite a different picture today! The male dress criterion is a sweater, with or with- out the familiar "G", and the shades range from argyle orange and yellow to standard browns or blues. Ladies apparel has always suffered from vogues and fads, and skirt lengths are forever changing. Take a look at the class pictures of five years agol Sports were distinctly restricted in scope at first. Boys and girls were required to have exercise every day. Of our present athletic fields and courts, only the boys' tennis courts were here in 1894, and for many years corn grew where the boys' lower fields are today. Curtis Eves was the father of boys' athletics. lt was at his suggestion that the first extramural game was arranged and played. Previously though, halls and literary societies had competed vigorously in intramural games. The football field was the first field built, though football was not official until 1923. Before 1907 there had been hall football teams, however. Baseball, tennis, and lacrosse were all started in the first ten years of this century, and all 'have continued except lacrosse, which was given up 'because of injury to players. Soccer was substituted for it in 1911. A swimming team first appeared in 1913 for the pool had been built in 1910. Track and basketball have the honor of being the longest played, and wrestling is the baby, com- ing in only in 1929. Girls had no extramural games until 1920, when 'Miss Thwing came and introduced the custom. Tobogganing and skating have been available since the skating pond was finished in 1895, and the toboggan slide appeared in 1905-06. That development has been going on since the beginning is aptly demonstrated by these few phases, and, unfortunately, space does not permit more examples. We hope that through such a sketch we have done justice to George School and all it represents in effort by those past and present. We would like to thank George M. Hart for the kind help he gave us in assembling the material. if y fff by 1 . for QQN Nm raft 'Ny ' H 111 f . Q 1 xxx , 1 3 1- .rd s f llll - 11 1 x X ffl. ..,, ,... ' - ,+ X - I 'lf V - .
