When Mr. McMillen took over the job of
sponsor during our junior year, the prospects
were none too pleasing. Despite the best
efforts of previous sponsors, we were dis-
organized and immature, It was left for Mr.
McMillen to defeat confusion and direct our
class in preparing itself for future responsi-
This year, besides sponsoring our class,
Mr. McMillen has also advised us in the
preparation of the yearbook. His aid in
correction, encouragement, and proofread-
ing has been offered and used to a large
The editors and staff of "Caravan," grate-
ful for time and effort so freely given, wish
to dedicate the yearbook of 1945 to Mr.
McMillen, our sponsor.
Through the tumultuous activity of our sophomore year,
Mr. Blauth made a valiant effort to curb the individualism
running so rampant among us. He weathered our stormy
second year with us, retaining fortitude, prolonged endurance,
and a useful sense of humor throughout. To Mr. Blauth at
Harvard, perhaps remembering our eventful days together,
we send our admiration and our thanks.
Our class has almost doubled since freshman days, but
those of us who remember that far back will recall Miss Bates,
who welcomed us at our first class meeting, and instructed
the new freshmen in the ways of school life. It was she who
first attempted to make us see the value of united action.
We send our gratitude to Miss Bates, who stuck with us our
first year with unbelievable faith in our future.

AS TIME GOES BY
'Our class and George Sch l
oo worked mutual changes upon each other,
to greater and lesser degrees du '
, ring four years. In '42 we were reverent
freshmen. Our class was filled with eager beavers. We enjoyed life. but
took our picnics and parties and
one another quite seriously. Miss Bates
advised us, and our teachers watched us with '
mixed hope and misgiving.
In September '43 our 1
c ass returned from vacation almost double in size
and exuberance. We went our vario
us ways in different sequences, searching
for the unattainable, i.e., straight S's We vie d
. we the new freshmen tolerantly,
putting their mistakes down t
o extreme youth. Experienced pessimists, we
were certain no class as ungovernable
as ours had ever existed.

the outside world which swirled ab
out the boundaries of our George School
citadel. We started then the long session f

Our meetings assumed a bl
sem ance of parliamentary order, which Mr.
McMillen hopefully fostered Of cour th

which wished itself in reality "Incognito" Finally came junior-senior Week-
end. We ambitiously decorated the dining roorri with vines and nets and
sparkling fish, and made hemlock chains for the seniors. We watched
graduation earnestly, looking ahead to next year, when we would be the ones.
In the fall of '45 we found what 't '

and to know as much, if not more, than any hu ' '

in ernational of our post-war world. However,
we were somewhat taken aback by the l
ack of enthusiasm among colleges,
which did not seem to clamor for our applications. Our senior year has been a
lively one, lengthy and frequent quarantines withal. "Blithe Spirit" redeemed
our junior effort, and class parties turned out successfully
Now it is the time for
us to glance backward, and then look aheadg
to remember and anticipateg to recall the individual incidents that made up
school life, and to recognize the opportunities and challenges of the future.
SENIOR EXECUTIVE COMM

"Captain Iohn," one of our
eager basketballers, surveys the
vicissitudes of G. S. life from his
day student eyrie at Sharon. A
busy socialite both in and out of
school, his other activities encom-
pass soccer, track and some work.
Ever since Westwood days, four
years ago, Iimmy has been as use-
ful in keeping us in stitches as she
is ornamental. Her monologues
and appearances in dramatics
class plays have proved unfor-
gettable. As a matter of fact, we
just can't forget anything about
Peggy's the second Girls' A.A.
president in a row from the thriv-
ing metropolis of Southampton,
Pa. In her leisure time she is mak-

and interesting friends. During
working hours Peg avidly soaks in
information from L'46 teachers.

One of Third Drayton's many
muscle men, "Iunior" uses his
strong-arm methods in handling
the crowd at the G. S. store. This
native of Lebanon is famous as a
football player, and as a rare
non-bull slinger in NS'46.
MARY LOUISE BAKER
It takes a lot to break Mary
Lou's composure, for she is one of
our most mature and well-balanced
members. She has a faculty of al-
ways being around when needed
and Mary Lou knows the right
word for the right occasion, what-
ever it may be.

pression of G. S. Needing outlets

and her violin from Syracuse, and

Business editor and champion
newshawk of the G. S. News, Bill's
executive abilities overflow into the
pool where, as manager, he puts
the varsity swimmers through their
paces. A proud son of Trenton, Bill
contributes his humor to the

Bringing home the "S's" seems
to be Bob's favorite sport, as his
subjects usually yield a mammoth
crop of the sought-after squiggles.
Bob reaches his zenith in math and

career in chemistry.

WILLIAM CLEAVER PHILIP COBB
Billy's southem accent, slow and
thick, oozes molasses-like down
Third Drayton and identifies its
owner at any distance. Actor and
athlete, Billy starred as "Rufe" in
the dramatics production of "Sun-
Up," while in the sports field he
excels in varsity soccer, basketball,
Cobby's really a man of many
parts. Holding the reins for the
store, Orton, and the Boys' A.A.
in one hand, he still achieved the
grand social gesture with the other.
Cobby accelerated to graduate at

Ann is the girl with the laugh-
ing brown eyes and a sparkle
that's catching. Her real under-
standing of people helps her to
write inspired and inspirational
poetry. As editor of the "News,"
Ann lends her clever feminine
touch, spiced with wit, to the
record of events at George School.
To be a Dolph seems to signify
social success at George School.
Ed, the final Dolph of the im-
mediate generation, has proved
the point. His popularity is only
exceeded by his ability to use a
large shovel, which he does with
enjoyment and success.
Mexico, Europe, New York, and
Yardley combined efforts to pre-

We still don't quite know what to
make of him, but we're inclined to
believe that some day, when he's
a famous tennis player or some-
thing, we'll brag that we knew
Literary master ot "Caravan,"
Pete's iron hand kept the literary
staff on the go. A charter member
of the P.A.C., Pete Crusades for the
rights of labor and uses up her
excess vitality playing varsity
basketball or discussing any ques-
tion with two sides.
It Nina is your friend, you know
you have someone to depend on
in an emergency. She possesses
many fine qualities, among them
steadtastness and willingness to
help. Perhaps that's why she's
such a well-liked person ana an
able senior counselor.

One of the two outnumbered
male members ot L'46, Fred also
uses his courage on the football
team as tackle. Any story seems
plausible in his mouth: maybe
that's why his crew cut and bow
tie are popular features ot Drayton
and the whole school.
That cockney accent waited from
the varsity hockey field or the G.
S. stage means Forrest. "Boobrack"
has given her overwhelming
energy to many school functions,
including Central Council, and
keeping Third East in trim. But
she enjoys her mad round ot re-
sponsibilities to the utmost.
Not just the glamour gal with a
double-take sense of humor, cr
varsity swimmer, and an attractive
art student: there's more to Teddy
than that. Those who know her
really well respect her as a sincere
writer ot poetry and a nice person
The sparkle in Foxie's eye may
catch your notice, but it's only
the faintest echo of her roaring
sense of humor. She lives for fun,
food, and horses, and may well
count her dramatics work a
triumph, especially her performance
as "Mrs. Webb" in "Our Town."
Someone once called Marty
"small, dark and silent," but what
a deception! Small and dark,
maybe, but her clever story-telling
keeps us in almost perpetual
amusement. Besides the care and
control of Fourth Easters, Marty's
primary interest is, without doubt,
ln the realm of music, Evie holds
sway. She sings, plays the piano,
and makes her vicinity frequently
melodious. Her position in student
government is a responsible one,
for Evie is a senior counselor, and
administers justice and good cheer
with the best.
IO ANN FRANKENBERG
Would somebody please tell us
how Ioey always looks so nice?
Perhaps the same person could
explain the source of her wonder-
ful record collection. We're not
envious, mind you, just curious,
even if she does hold the record
at George School for telephone
calls and mail.
If a sparkling red-head appears
on the horizon, you may be sure
it's Bobbie. Gilp's efficiency and
popularity are quite evident in her
presidency of Girls' Council and
Third West senior counselorship.
Kennett Sq. came through nobly
with another Gilpin.
Ralph's ambitions lie in two
main directions. The first will be
realized when his yacht wins the
biennial Bermuda race. He will
achieve the second when he's a
great research physicist. Mean-
while Ralph participates in school
activities successfully, particularly
varsity tennis and writing for
Scientifically speaking, Bruce,
the chemist, would tell you that he
was worth about 97?. From our
point of view he's considerably
more valuable, especially as a
varsity swimmer. Since he's in
NS'46, Bruce is a profound thinker.
He often steps out of character to
turn out masterful art work.
Blossoming out this year, both
on the soccer field and wrestling
mats, Ken is the living proof that
NS'46 has more than brains. Senior
council member for First Drayton
and treasurer of our class, Ken's
varied talents make him in con-
stant popular demand.

Behind the daily comings and goings of
the student body and faculty are directing
and policy-shaping hands. These belong to
Mr. Walton and Mr. Eves. Theirs is a sort of
final authority on all school questions, and
they make the big decisions concerning
our welfare. Fortunately for us, in our senior
year, Mr. Walton, relieved of some of his
Building Fund duties, was with us more fre-
quently in assemblies.
Individually Mr. Walton and Mr. Eves
advise different groups and perform ad-
ministrative functions. Together they provide
a guiding influence on the school as a Whole.
The problems of Miss Clough are those of
anxious parents, dining room seating, scores
of absence permits, and girls discipline. Her
competent finger is in every administrative
pie in George School and her efficiency
keeps things running during times of epi-
demic or other stress.
Mr. Shane sits at the head of the line
which bears his name, meting out justice
to summoned suppliants, He attends to our
college negotiations and advises us con-
cerning our choices. His duties are many,
and from the student viewpoint he is char-
acterized by fairness and impartiality.
THE ENGLISH DEPARTMENT
Present here are the teachers
who hopefully suggest good books
and careful grammar. Their task
is the teaching of our mother
tongue. Absent from the picture
are Miss Robinson, head of the
department, and Mr, Frescolrt, on

THE LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT
Our foremost world citizens, they
would have the average George
School student converse intelli-
gently with the average French-
man, German, Spaniard, or early
Roman. Though their aims are
similar, their methods vary from
persistent classroom tactics to the
"talk or starve policy" at language
THE HISTORY DEPARTMENT
"Foresight through hindsight" is
the implied motto of the history
department. They deal in human
events with god-like impartiality,
and their students are taught the
story of the past in a determined
effort to make them avoid the pit-
falls ofthe future.
THE ART DEPARTMENT
This department keeps us well
informed ol the schools esthetic
and practical progress. The shop
and the art studio are open to the
curious beginner as well as to the
advanced student, The former re-

These are the fearless mathe-
maticians, who cringe not at the
fierce quadratic equation, and are
able to look a sine curve right in

The scientific attitude is well
represented at George School, as
the earnest students are shuttled
from Carson, to Burton, to Swayne.
Explosions, dissections, and loud
noises are the order ol the day

He acts as combined buffer and go-between for the
students, their government, cmd the faculty.
To a certain extent the G. S. student body
governs itself. Girls' Council, led by its presi-
dent, Bobbie Gilpin, and advised by Miss
Clough, attends to such matters as shower-
shoes, entertainment cuts or their lack, and
the general welfare of the girls.
The daily management of Drayton, with
just and speedy discipline, is the major
achievement of Drayton Council. Extra ac-
tivities include members sent to Peddie, the
Drayton Council Banquet, and three Dray-
Orton Council, with the help of Mr. Fraser
and the prefects, attends to guilty owners
of candled birthday cakes, water fight par-
ticipants, and such.
Central Council has received more active
student interest this year because of its new
vigor and decisiveness. It has seemed more
than usual to be a truly representative body.

Handicapped by lack of experience in the
T-formation, Coach Carson's squad dropped
all but one game. The backfield, lighter than
usual, completed many passes, and 'thanks
to the receiving ability of Captain Saurman
and the ends, passes accounted for halt of
the total points scored during the season.
Football newcomers such as Pete Fred-
erick, and the reinforcements from the cub
team filled the vacant spots left by last year's
graduates. With eight ot the first eleven re-
turning in 1946, the chances for success next
year seem much better. We wish Mr. Carson
and the rest ot the squad best ot luck!

The soccer team came through in 1945
with one of the best seasons in recent years.
The squad, in most games heavily out-
weighed, showed G. S. crowds what fighting
spirit can do. As evidence of their ability,
several of the letter-rnen made the all-Phila-
delphia non-league team.
Billy Cleaver at goal, Buck Shane and Ken
Hankinson on the forward line, and Wilkie,
Phil Swayne, and Ioe Reese in the backfield,
contributed especially to the tea1'n's winning
ability. Captain Bones Parkinson moved
from goal to forward line, and Buddy Cope,
with his educated toe, was responsible for
the winning of two games. All the letter-men

tained by Mike Kulla, they got off to a wet
start, rained out in the first match at Valley
Forge. Then one team after another fell be-
fore the rackets of both singles and doubles,
and the season was ended with an unde-
feated team. One winner, Mike Kulla,
emerged from the tough competition of the
Veteran old-timers, such as Buck Shane

The 1945 baseball team, with an infield
of returning letter-men, met its tougher-than-
usual season with mixed results. Pitchers
Charlie Henrie and Ted Wright did well for
Coach Shane and the team, and deserve
special recognition. Talkative catcher Bud
Bond gained a reputation for rattling the
most aggressive opposing batter with his
steady patter. Co-captains Pete Ewing and
Chuck Gilbert held down second and third
bases with a minimum of difficulty. Two posi-
tions on the first nine were earned by new-
comers to the varsity squad, By Hollinshead
and Bill Cromwell.
The record of five wins and seven defeats,
plus the victory against the inter-academic
champions, gives the school reason to look
hopefully to the l946 season.
Letter-men--Ewing, Gilbert, Mason, C.

GIRLS' TENNIS AND ARCHERY
The spring of 1945 saw the revival of two
varsity groups at George School, varsity
tennis and archery. Few meets were pos-
sible, but the outcome was successful and
much was learned from this experiment.
Varsity tennis was coached by Neka
Thomas, captained by Mary Reese, and
managed by Olive Golden. It Was discovered
that team spirit and cooperation are neces-
sary even in a comparatively individual
sport such as tennis. Nadya Timbres and
Iimmy Adams Were captain and manager,
respectively, of varsity archery, Their coach
was Terrie Pierce, Who instructed them in
the finer points of tournament play.
The consensus seemed to favor varsity
sports for the girls in the spring months, both
for opportunities in team organization and
George School has done well by the
drama this year. "Uncle lack," directing
two large classes since the Building Fund
purloined Mr. Frescoln, presented audiences
with a variety of programs.
"Our Town," first gala opening of the
season, and traditional hereabouts, was
given on alumni day for the benefit of
nostalgic returnees. Mr. Fraser, once more
the Stage Manager, brought the play to life
before our very eyes. Stars Sally Hutchin-
son and Art Henrie gave sympathetic per-
formances, as did the rest of the cast, aided
by some of the best lighting effects ever seen
on the George School stage. tCourtesy Luria,
"Aria da Capo," a one-act play, used the
collective talents of Iimmy Adams, Art
Henrie, Langdon Elsbree, Steve Sondheim,
and "Uncle lack." It offered a test in ap-
preciation that the social hour audience
passed with pleasure.

Musical life at George School received a
great impetus with the welcome return of
"Mr. Mac" after his illness. The school as a
whole responded to his active direction, cmd
student voices rose in sounding unison-
even on Monday mornings.
The combined choral groups and the clas-
sical orchestra were first heard in the an-
nual Christmas Vesper Service on December
16th. The height of the program was reached
with the orchestra's professional rendition of
selections from Handel's "Messiah," and the
traditional Christmas Bach chorales, "Break
Forth O Beauteous Heavenly Light," and
"Now Let Every Tongue Adore Thee." Mrs.
Winn from Newtown accompanied the sing-
ing, to the equal pleasure of singers and
Through the year specially talented stu-
dents have gone from George School to per-
form for the pleasure of our neighboring
schools and clubs. These groups heard Dusty
Barnard's and Natalie Miller's violins, the
voices of Karla King and Carolyn Leedom,
Paul Humphrey and Steve Sondheim at the
piano, or saw the ballet dancing of Pat
Shelmerdine. The school may well be proud
of its traveling musical ambassadors.
Some of the newer musical events this
year were the Sunday evening concerts
featuring Mrs. Hutchinson, Miss Hilger, and
others, There was also the Boys' Glee Club,
enthusiastically revived, and active interest
in a student-written musical comedy.
In April came the Spring Musicale, long
awaited and diligently rehearsed. In turn
the orchestra presented selections from
Tschaikowsky's Fifth Symphony, the Mixed
Chorus and Girls' Glee Club sang several
numbers, and Dusty Barnard again delighted
us with her violin. The vocal climax was at-
tained when the combined groups sang the
"Polovetsian Dance and Chorus" from
"Prince Igor," by Borodin, and Schubert's
In the realm of hot music, the team of
Sharpless and Fine gathered friends and
admirers from those who rejoiced that swing
had not died with the departure of Norm
Looking back, we may say that George
School has had a memorable musical year.
