Linmhvm E G 4 S -1 E fr n Time, you old gypsy man, Will you not stay, Put up your caravan lust for one day? -RALPH HODGSON THRFIUFIH PRESENTED BY THE CLASS OF I946 GEORGE SCHOOL, PENNSYLVANIA DEDICATION 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- bilities. 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 extent. 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. MR. BLAUTH 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. MISS BATES 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.

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. As juniors more of b us egan to realize the crises and emergencies of the outside world which swirled ab out the boundaries of our George School citadel. We started then the long session f s o college planning and worr Our meetings assumed a bl y. sem ance of parliamentary order, which Mr. McMillen hopefully fostered Of cour th . se ere was the junior play, the cast of 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 ' 1 is to be a senior, to have privileges, and to know as much, if not more, than any hu ' ' fac d ' man being. With assurance e the problems national and ' t we 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 President , TIM MCELWAIN Vice-President IANET LONG Secretary IACK ROGERS Girls' Treasurer DORIS PARKS Boys'7Veasurer KEN HANKINSON I TTE E Llliifll 'lQ:'f5i- X IOHN ACKERMAN "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. IANE ADAMS 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 Iimmy. MARGARET ALLEN 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- ing a large collection of varied and interesting friends. During working hours Peg avidly soaks in information from L'46 teachers. f .xi 1 X By Nfl? N! PAUL ANDERSON 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. um ,, 00 X ' fi , N ,i g 3 xx J CHARLES BECK For two years a shining member of varsity football, Fritz's depend- able passes and punts have helped the first eleven out of many a tough spot. Interested in all athletics and certain girls, Fritz has hidden leanings toward a career in art. BARBARA BEAIRSTO Thoughtful of others and charm- ing as well, Barbara, as vice- president of the Girls' A.A., gives visiting teams the best possible im- pression of G. S. Needing outlets for her intelligence, Barbara gives clever stage characterizations and takes active interest in the doings of I.'46. gf QQ I -Gf MARION BARNARD Dusty brought talent, personality and her violin from Syracuse, and George School thoroughly appreci- ated all three. Starting this year as a gentle subduer of the Fourth Center asylum, Dusty proved her ability to weather the storm and bring order out of chaos. WILLIAM BINDER 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 Second Drayton bedlam. ROBERT BLANKEN 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 the sciences and enjoys tennis and football. He looks forward to a career in chemistry. MARGARET BRADY Tall, attractive, and a Salemite, Margaret is right at home in Home Ec. We wouldn't have believed she actually made some ot her clothes it we hadn't seen them in the making. Margaret's planning to use her skill in a career of dress design. RICHARD CARSWELL Yachting enthusiast oi the Dray- ton upper recrches, Dick, a native of Seattle, still longs for the salt breezes ot Long Island Sound. Breaking his weekly stretches of farm work by listening to classical records, Dick's thoughts tum to ward a future lit by chemistry. t, .- Q , f gb I tt vt Vi .25 MARIORIE CLAASSEN Peggy has done well by our stage, appearing both as an actress and a singer. Belonging to that varied and interesting group known as day students, Peggy commutes each day, and fills the hours between 8:30 and 3:15 with careful and precise accomplish- ment. EVELYN CLAEYS "Blonde Bombshell" of the class of '46, Lynn is known to her friends for her humorous vivacity. She often presents a rather quiet front to the world at large, but when you think you're brow-beat- ing her, we bet you anything she's laughing up her sleeve. DAVID CHAMBERS Dave came back in the middle of the year, after devoting some precious time to Uncle Sam. Need- less to say he was more than wel- come, being the sort of guy who's adept at anything and friendly to boot. ,. , fe fn, ' y A .X , f Dia.: -.J 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, and baseball. 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 midterm, missed by Orton and the whole school. it 4 1 ANN DASHIELI. 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. EDWARD DOLPH 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. IEREMY DRESSER Mexico, Europe, New York, and Yardley combined efforts to pre- sent us with Ierry for four years. 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 him. MIRIAM DUBIN 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. NINA EMERSON 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. X' K I . A L dp Jn x FREDERICK FOWLES 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. BARBARA FORREST 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. THEODORA FLYNN 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 to know. Rh ,MMM X if CAROLYN FOX 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." XS MARTHA PRONEPIELD 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, airplanes. EVELYN FUSS 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 Z . calls and mail. vs- BARBARA GILPIN 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. X 65,0 RALPH GOMORY 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 "Caravan" SW? I5 Alfa BRUCE GRAVES 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. KENNETH HANKINSON 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. 4? , Sl l IOYCE ELLEN HAYNES Iody, with the impish expression in her eyes, makes any job fun if she's in on it. Her energy certainly doesn't appear to be wasted on the long trip from Newtown, and she arrives daily, complete with ideas and her rugged sense of humor. l s WILLIAM HAINES The practical side of life holds the most appeal for Bill, farmer, physicist, and carpenter. One of the senior play's backstage crew, Bill was the man who propped the prop that held the wall up. Method and order make Bill outstanding on wild and woolly Second Dray- lon. . J J RICHARD HECKMAN Music is the ruling muse in Dick's life. Collector of fine records of his own, he also makes good selections for our musical pro grams as chairman of the Carnegie Committee. The Drayton boys know he's a just administrator of student government, and everyone knows he's a friendly person. MARIORIE HICKS Blonde, pretty and practical, Margy didn't appear at G. S. 'til our junior year. fDefinitely our loss.l Since then she has creatively and constructively shown us her abilities, which are many. Cover- ing her forcefulness with a serene smile, Margy is dependable, clever and well liked. at i J 8,3 2 sf IOHN HOWELL A single year in our hallowed halls has only mellowed the charm of this circulating socialite. His eager listeners are fascinated with Iohnny's colorful vacation exploits, and a large audience was com- pletely captivated by "Howie New- some's" honest-to-gosh drawl in "Our Town." RICHARD HOYLE Stalwart sportsman and teller of tall tales is Tiny. For recreation he asks nothing better than to open wide the windows and play assorted discs for the assembled multitudes. Tiny accomplishes a lot, but would never be called a worshipper of hard toil. AVIS HUGHES Avis of L'46 has forsaken Trenton to reside on Second West. Her love of music includes playing in our classical orchestra, and the records of "Oklahoma" on her victrola. Careful and precise, Avis makes su-re her work is always accomplished and a credit to her. CT lille X L J cf-J .5 T SARAH HUTCHINSON One of the "preferred by gentle- men" variety, Sally goes her way, carefree and sociable, through George School lite. Audiences held their breath, then sighed gently when she appeared on stage in "Outward Bound" and "Ring Around Elizabeth," and found "Emily" in "Our Town" someone to remember. IANE IENKINS Fourth East may quiver and tremble with its inmates' merry pranks, but lane, the stoic senior counselor, stays calm throughout and saves the day. The wrath of Ienkins is terrible to behold, how- ever, if any slighting word is said about her favorite state, Wisconsin. HELEN IOHNSTON Helen, our own "Glamazon," is at her best when playing a gypsy fortune teller. Extremely interested in the human brain from a psycho- logical point of view, she's decided that her motive for collecting operatic records was her hidden t?l desire to become an opera star herself. ZH 05545 CYNTHIA KAMP Cindy's from New England, but she'd hardly be described as "stern" or nrockboundf' As a matter of fact, warmth and affa- bility are her most prominent char- acteristics. Cindy has been known to show great determination, though, most particularly in her persistent scoring in girls' varsity basketball. CAREL IOHNSON Carel's another of those who en- riched the class our junior year cmd who made us wish we'd known her longer. Carel rooms on Second West fwithin easy two- minute commuting distance of din- ing room and assemblyl and the girls' varsity basketball team has found in Carel an excellent guard.

I fi ,V MICHAEL KULLA ALICE KESTER For a girl to survive in NS'46 is a remarkable feat. For this we recommend Alice for a medal. A varsity swimmer, Alice often ar- rives home in Newtown late at night from practice, but always re- turns, ready for anything the next day. ' x, i Varsity tennis man his sopho- more year, and captain his junior and senior years, Mike also makes' good on the basketball court. Shift- worker and gadabout from New York, Mike lends real tone quality to the Drayton Shower Chorus. . ,, Q 1 X CW Q9 W ox!5E'3 My elf sw L: HELEN LAWRENCE lust call her the "Salem Sun- beam." Laurie comes from a town twhich shall be namelessl in New Iersey. Westwood knew her first in freshman days. Now the care, and training of Second East is her job in whatever time L'46 leaves her to herself. Q ki VIRGINIA LAWRENCE Iinny, our competent manager of the girls' swimming team, will also be remembered as George School's "voice with a smile," for, as one of the switch-board operators, she has soothed the tardy shift-worker and made the telephone office a popular place. CAROLYN LEEDOM Who's the Fourth West senior counselor with the beautiful voice? That's right, it's Carolyn Leedom. A boarder this year, after leaving the day students, she has again entertained us in variety shows and been capable and efficient on her hall, r , f, .1 'uv n pw t' QQ Q l l ,f- ELIZABETH LE PATOUREL If we think only of Bazel as an asset to varsity hockey and basket- ball, we'll sing her praises. Con- sidering her other characteristics, interest in everything, and person- ality-plus, we wish we could have known her for more than just one year. RICHARD LERNER Whether we call him "Ozzie," or "Rabbit," or merely "Dick," you'll still know whom we mean. Acting and putting up sets seem to come naturally to him, but we think of Dick first as our leading George School humorist, positively guaran- teed irrepressible. QEQXNG IANET LONG "Caravan's" associate editor pos- sesses all the know-how when it comes to getting along with people and teachers. Associate editor of the "News" as well, captain of girls' swimming and vice-president of our class, Ianet is a veritable mainspring of many of our activi- ties. IANNEY LUPTON ln defiance of tradition Ianney is an up-and-coming, brisk South- erner. Lup swims and dives for the girls' varsity, both with an air of magnificent unconcern. For her as- sistant art-editorship of "Caravan," Lup deserves nomination to the G. S. hall of fame. CARLOS LURIA Starting at George School five years ago as the terror of Orton, Carlos has steadily improved the shining hour and in his senior year has made G. S. a better and funnier place. His contributions in- clude lighting for plays, victrola repairs, and witty conversation "am deutschen Tischf' T sf-fin. :if 1' T - lv ,X + J Q 9 .I f gf V Ki ' rs ,s ,M x.-- .,.s,-Wi, .XX-x ,- Q .fs fm, , , ,wWM.,0x,fzsfy7y,fh , M... . .

His leadership was again utilized in an Orton pre- fectship. In short, Tim has made the most of his school opportuni- ties, and proved his ability to the school at large. ,Nu C29 x., X MARGERY METZ Midge is one of those persons who do everything well, with special emphasis on varsity sports, cheer-leading, and male morale. Dramatics class claimed Midge's talents as a junior, and this year she has been one of the leading lights on Third West. ROBERT MILAM What would Second Drayton be without Bob's southern accent drifting down the hall at consider- ably less than the speed of sound? Champion bull sessioner, Bob up- holds the southern point of view against opposing abolitionists, and injects a note of humor into the dormitory life. N' 0 Q-2" Q .o:o'0 -9 0 PHYLLIS MYERS California and Culver Military Academy both owe much to Phyl for the amount of free advertising she has given thern. Here's one girl who's going West in a big way, but we're glad we got to know her before she leaves the East for good. 0' f MARY-LOUISE NASON Through the ups and downs of George School life for four years, Polly has survived and flourished. Now, a Third West senior, Polly still displays the same good nature and attractive exterior she started out With, plus an artistic capability pointing toward a successful future. FRANCIS ANNE NICHOLS Anne's from Dixie, and if there's any doubt of that, just watch her face when she spots a copy of the "Blue Ridge Herald" in her mail- box. Anne is known on Second East and vicinity as the girl who always has the proper remark for any occasion. h -ff,,'f'..2 Q X r A, . Triple star athlete, Bone stands!

Woe unto him, however, who forbids Al to talk about his beloved car. Orchestra member and wise-crack artist from way back, Al is typical of NS'46. SUSAN PERRY There exists a strong spiritual bond between Sue and a gentle- man called Benny Goodman, She does occasionally spend a few minutes doing homework, but Sue is really happy only when listen- ing to "her master's voice." We see a musical future, starring Sue vocalizing with some clarinet. ' 'uf' ' -1.

One of the most popular cmd friendly girls at school, Betsy has done much, to bolster the morale of the whole student body. LJ PAUL RODNEY QUIGG Sociable Rod is one of George School's men about town. Athleti- cally inclined, Rod may be ob- served racing down the home stretch in the vanity bathtub, or, as a leader of the social committee, striving nobly to bring variety to "hissing," I Fiji? I "HERE KENNETH RAWSON One of the two lonely rnales in the female wilderness of L'46, Ken has courageously upheld the rights of man against great opposition. He has also voiced considered opinions in the Public Affairs Com- mittee and is, on the whole, one of our most constructive and original citizens. IOAN REDLAND "Laugh and the world laughs with you-" at least they always do with Ioan. Whether it's at varsity basketball or hockey, in Central Council or as a senior counselor, Ioan always gets the job done, then comes up with another joke or two. IOSEPH REESE From the Meadowbrook tribe of the Reeses, Ioe lives up to the family traditions by being long, lean, and athletic. Shining as a soccer fullback and mainstay of the team, Ioe takes part in the social whirl and still finds time to manage the basketballers. V IY . I 1 QD fr . fx 1 H 1 f s A Q , if n Q.: WALTER REX GEORGE RIEGER MARGARET RINTZ Another of the brave few who count this as their first year at George School, Walt has made his mark even in this brief time. Council member from First Dray- ton, he steadies his reckless charges and in between times dis- cusses the merits of electric razors. Few students come through the strain of their senior year as calm and relaxed as George. His tem- perament was difficult to upset, even in the trying job of soccer manager. Greatest of his academic interests is an inclination toward history, in which he shines. lust call her the walking social conscience. When she's not de- fending the rights of women, labor, or the underprivileged in general, she's devoting herself to the drama, the P.A.C., or the conversion of capitalists. We are sure of her glittering future after knowing her successful present at G. S. T. THACHER ROBINSON Thach, our electronics expert, may frequently be observed car- rying his victrola and mike to pro- vide music fot our dances or sound effects for our plays. The "T" in his name stands for "Tesslacoil," and cathode rays hold no secrets for Thacher, George School genius at large. J, U-YS JOHN ROGERS At home on land or sea, lack transcends the elements to emi- nence in soccer and in swimming. Outstanding even among NS'46's mental giants, he shines in all subjects. An embryo engineer, he looks fora scientific career in the brave new electronic world. :stif- FREN N I i tl MARGARET SATTERTHWAITE Peggy's a day student, so we don't have to add that she's got a sense of humor and a great deal of energy. Let it be known, how- ever, that her personality and con- versation are of the A No. 1 variety, especially clever on the lighter side. SABRA SATTERTHWAITE "Mischief maker in search of fun" might completely describe Sabra, except that she is also one of our best and most promising artists. Apples are ambrosia to Sabra, and her other likes are for crazy hats and designing her own smart and attractive clothes. ' -I V I P o xe ,J Ru I if .gf -oE i gwifg ,Nita R 72 Q U PARKE SCHOCH IANE SCUDDER Parke, one of our leading elec- tricians, lives surrounded by a welter of gadgets in his room and signs on his walls, His avowed in- tention is to become a beach- comber, but actually more ambiti- ous things in the practical line are to be expected of him. Starting as a Sunnybanke fresh- man, Iane varied her G. S. lite by being a day student for two years. Now a Third West senior, she is also one of the intirmary's "angels of mercy," prepared to take our temperature, our pulses, and al- most make us glad we're sick. MARGARET SEABROOK Maisie moves about in the inner circles of George School lite, and is well known for her acting ability as well as tor her sharp clothes. George School appreciates that wide-eyed, innocent stare and her happy-go-lucky attitude. There are many who will miss them when she goes. N :A ,MN ANDREW SEGAL The first student in George School history to invade the sacred sessions of Executive Council, and one who nobly fulfills his func- tions as a student-body representa- tive, Orton prefect, and idol of its inmates, Andy rounds out an already full existence with vicious sets of tennis. 7 2 QL, EDWARD SHELMERDINE One of the happier results of progressive education, Ed wencls his carefree way through George School life, hoping someday to pick up a seven no-trump hand. ln athletics, Ed shines in the fall, as he aids the varsity soccer team to a successful season. BUCKLEY SHANE The title "faculty brat" hereby receives another wreath as Shane comes through, proving that George School may boast of its own. Lead- ing in "V" athletics all year 'round, Bucky is also interested in matters that go on in classrooms. He even participates in social life-occa- sionally. , EDGAR SHAUDYS Back to the soil is Edgar's plan as he concentrates on a farming life. One of the men who make the George School Farm tick, he also takes a keen interest in shop and uses his practical talents to handle the staging of the George School plays. IOSEPH SMITH As the man behind the men be- hind the ball, Manager loe proved an invaluable aid to this year's football squad. One of the gentle- men from Fourth Drayton, he is an eager bull-sessioner whose ready jests have earned him a Drayton- wide reputation. LCM fOl 7 l ' k1.UQQ:K..- XXX vs :,rz+,e-Q .1 W PAMELA SMITH Calm and unruffled exterior covering talent, energy, humor, and brains within-that's Pam. After filling her G. S.

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. ADMINISTRATIVE FACULTY 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. was 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 loan this year to the Building Fund, 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 tables. 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. H 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- Vceive an encouraging welcome. and the latter guidance and advice, THE MATHEMATICS DEPARTMENT 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 eye without flinching, They communicate their knowledge to us, the lesser beings, in math class, U 1 .fes THE SCIENCE DEPARTMENT 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 and distnrb our intrepid searchers for truth not one whit, V ,,, -Mummy Andy Segal, our student-body representative, at- tends Executive Council and sticks up for our rights, He acts as combined buffer and go-between for the students, their government, cmd the faculty. COUNCIL NOTES 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- ton dances. 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.

Betsy Plummer, riding the crests and en- couraging her teammates at the low points, proved an able and well-chosen captain. Manager Redland combined action with efficiency in her playing and managing duties. This year the varsity squad consisted of only four teams, instead of the six of previ- ous years. Toward the end of the season fifth and sixth teams Were chosen from the competing tournament groups. Among those expected to return next year are Iosie Barroll, first team captain-elect, and Becky Eves, who was chosen manager. With many other varsity underclassmen return- ing, a' successful season is to be hoped for in the fall of '46. Af f , " ,, - A S- - M 5 M' f ibm' m , 'V .

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 were awarded gold soccer balls.

The team received excellent relief support, particularly from forwards Bikle and Saxton. Coach Fletcher and the team look forward to a successful season's end. Captain Strider Manager Metz GIRLS' BASKETBALL In the winter season team spirit and com- petition were given extra encouragement because of the graduation of five of last year's first team. The squad of twenty-six benefited as a whole from the added in- centive, although the first team scores do not indicate an entirely successful season. Rocky Strider, manager pro tem since the spring of '45, was elected captain, and Midge Metz, tour year varsity member, be- came manager, Coach "Thwingie" con- tinued her policy of strengthening the play- ing skills of every girl on the team. Despite sickness and quarantine the squad com- pleted its season, counting defeats as valu- able experience and looking forward to great things in '47. Not least among this squad's pleasures was the company of "Thwingie's" two small daughters, Eileen and Shirley, on a team trip. Coach Thwmg SCORES GS.

Wright. tvlgffcj 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 individual improvement. ACTIVITIES . ................... Curtain time 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, Robinson: electricians.l "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. r-A swim QQ ' CT' A I-.I-' L.-1-1 ll e e -an ..........-1- 1-A 5 az fi Vik E X that XX "Blithe Spirit," the senior play, came through against odd s on Ianuary 19th.

The play was fortunate both in casting and back-stage crew whose l , c everness turned the last scene into happy bedlam The set of "Sun-Up," next produced, was received with a l pp ause, and the motion was seconded for the actors. Notable in the cast were Bill Cleaver Edie P . usey, Ann Richards and "bottle-toting" Wilkie. ,X xsylr ,,,.,-I 2 ...4-""""' -""""", bah TE v4"""" -4""""-..- if-""" Aw' ' M-fi-" Pm gk Ya know' so Kona N 'M :L Xxhsfq ff' ,,.,,,,.-N, -'ffl f-... ,A ?'f Z ,,,..-""' ,,..ff' l ff" -ffl" 5 ,Qc ., 'fi V wvlef Veogvgike som 500 f ...-1-"""' M A. ,wi I .-." ,Z-4 ,ff- .wr real' 1 teal I TI E... 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 audience. 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 "Omnipotence." 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 Chance. Looking back, we may say that George School has had a memorable musical year.
