As we, the graduating class of '46, move forward into the steady
stream of human progress-as we draw up sharply at reaching a
peak in our charted lives-our eyes instinctively view the past.
It is a past rich and alluring, and one in which our city has played
a leading role:
The rapid chant of the tobacco auctioneer, the loud blast of the
mill Whistles, the crowded buses along the beautifully shaded
streets, the cheerful greetings of friendly people, an alert WBTM,
ofteh featuring on programs G. W. boys and girls, and the hearty
cooperation between city and school in many important civic
movements will linger in our memories and will color our entire
Each student takes with him as he goes forward, his own character,
initiative, ability, training, and a portion of his city life. These
are his possessions, to mould, each in his own way, into a lasting
tower of success.

The great span of bridges across the Dan is one of the scenic
beauties of the city and one in which its citizens have great pride.

To Mrs. Nora Payne Hill, the head of the English Depart-
ment and faculty adviser of THE CHATTERBOX, We,
the current senior class, dedicate the '46 CAVALIER in
appreciation for her faithful and efficient service.
Mrs. Hill's unswerving loyalty to the highest standards in
English and journalism, her excellent judgment, her charm-
ing and interesting personality have inspired admiration
from students and teachers alike. It is through her untiring
efforts that our school can boast of national prominence
in journalism, and We feel that with her leadership We may
anticipate even greater recognition.
Now when our last high school days are drawing near, we,
the "miserable wretchesn of G. W. H. S., can boast to the
World with pride, "We have served under Mrs. Hillf,

Through the Distributive Education classes at George Washington High School, students
are prepared for the Held of distribution. Furthermore, these classes form an important
link between the school and the community.
Classes are held here in school, where they are taught retailing. Their downtown work in
the stores is the laboratory part of the program, where they put into practice what they
have learned in school. The downtown stores cooperate splendidly in the course.
Thrifty students are taking advantage of this learn-while-you-work method. Some will
continue their studies in college, recognizing the fact that retailing has become important
as a profession.
This training covers instruction in pleasant human relations, variety in experience, and
a knowledge of the security of year-round employment. Also, the students realize
wonderful opportunities for advancement.

Although failing to meet the 1.000 average of the 1944
football squad, the 1945 Cardinal eleven came through
the most diilieult schedule in the sehool's history with
three wins, seven losses, and two ties.
The Redbirds had only three first-stringers from the 1944
State Championship team returning to the gridiron sport
la t fall when the first drill was held on September I.
The ,4S squad had to be built around this nucleus, the
remniiiing poitions filled with candidates from last year's
reserves and junior Varsity.
XVhen the Cardinals lined up against Schuulfield in the
season opener, the following faces were seen in the start-
ing lineup: lid Matney, left enclg W'alter Baucom, left
tackle, Bill Fitzgerald, left guard, W'alter Bridges, center,
,Iohn Reynolds, right guard, Lindow White, right tackle,
Charlie Travnlum. right endg jacky Mowbray, quarter-
Although failing to meet the 1,000 average of the 19444
and Robert Ramey, fullback.
After a muddy encounter which allowed only straight
football, the closing whistle found the locals on the top
side of a I3-0 score.
Reidsville invaded the home grounds the following week
to take a close game from the determined Redbirds, I5-12.
The Cards played the Lions on even terms throughout
and only brute force and weight advantage of the visitors
determined the final outcome.
Arlington brought one of the best-drilled eluens to
Danville local fans had seen in a long tiene, and handed
the lighter Cardinals their worst defeat in several years.
lt was Arlington all the way. lfinal score 2543.

inexperienced, a new formation was learned which
capitalized on speed and deception. Also, various changes
were made in the lineup.
Charlie Williamson took over the injured Bill Fitzgerald's
left guard position, and in the backfield, Peyton Hatcher
was upped to quarterback. Robert Ramey shifted to right
halfback and Richmond Williamson installed at fullback.
The following week. the Cardinals journeyed to Norfolk
to play Maury High School. With only three days of
work on their new "T" formation, the Cards met the
powerful Commodores before 8,500 cheering fans at
Foreman's Field, and tied them 6-6. The Commodores
were consistently outplayed throughout the game.
On October 13, the Redbirds encountered the ,justices of
john Marshall at League Park. Although outweighed by
25 pounds per man, the Cards bulled through and soundly
thrashed the visitors to the tune of 13-0. For the first
time, the GW running attack clicked, smashing through
the line as well as around the ends. The following week,
Lynchburg took a li-0 encounter from the hard-fighting
Redbirds before 4,500 disappointed fans at League Park.
The locals showed up well, but couldn't muster up the
punch to put it over.
Hitting the road for the next four contests, the locals
dropped the first to Hampton 16-0 before 9,000 specta-
tors. Danville fans who made the trip said the Cardinals
played their best game thus far, regardless of the score.
NY'inston-Salem bulled through the greatly-outweighed
GW line on November 2, to down the Redbirds in the
second half, li-2. The Cards just could not get started
and the case was the same the following week as Harding
of Charlotte downed the stubborn Cardinals 7-0 in their
beautiful American Legion Stadium.
The fighting Cards, in their last out-of-town encounter,
bounced back in the second half to tie Salem 6-6 in the
Roanoke College Stadium. The Wolverines smashed
through the injury-riddled GW lineup early in the first
period for their only score, but were greatly outplayed by
the locals for the remainder of the game. Several scores
by the Redbirds were called back because of penalties or
other technical difficulties.
ln a rough and tough scramble at League Park on Turkey
Day, the Cards were defeated by Charlottesville in the
first four minutes of play, when the visitors scored their
two touchdowns. During the last three periods it was an
all-Cardinal affair, but the locals were able to put it over
only once in addition to a safety. The score-I3-8.
JOHN ARUIER REYNOLDS
Co-Capt. NUMA BRADNER
qAll State, Second Teamj
Outweighed some seven or eight pounds, the Redbirds
were determined nevertheless that it was to be their day,
and they completely crushed Hargrave S1-6 in the sea-
son's finale. Bradner. was the big gun for the locals,
scoring five times and passing for a sixth.
So in reality, even though the won and lost column is a
little top-heavy on the losing side, Coach Ferguson's boys
didn't fare too badly, and excellent preparation is in
order for next year. The Cards will, however, miss the
following first-stringers who are seniors or will be lost to
the draft: Charlie Traynham, john Reynolds, Eddie
Matney, Peyton Hatcher, and Numa Bradncr.

Starting the season in December Captain Dick Hurd, Maynard Reynolds, Milton Gxeen-
berg, Buddy Stutts, and Jack Mowbray were in the lineup that ran rough-shod over
Stuart and Ferrum. After the Christmas holiday Milton Greenberg was the first loss
suffering with flu. Charlie Traynham rose to the occasion and replaced Greenberg at
center and at the same time Reynolds was moved up to forward with Hurd. Walter
Bridges became Jacky Mowbray's running mate at guard. This combination dropped only
two of the following eight games, to Roanoke and to Reidsville in an overtime. However,
Reidsville got the short end of a 29 to 14 score at the hands of the Redbirds a week later.
At the turn of the semester difficulties set in. Mowbray was classed ineligible, however,
Greenberg returned fully recovered.
Another change was made in the Cards line up. Reynolds and Traynham at forward,
Milton Greenberg, center, with Hurd and Bridge at guard. This shake-up took time for
adjustment. Duringl the interval G. W. was easy prey for its opponents, as Lynchburg,
Hargrave, Roanoke, and Salem overwhelmed Danville.
Before the second Lynchburg game coach Ferguson made his last adjustment. Hurd was
returned to forward and Traynham teamed with Bridge at guard. This change seemed
to do the trick, as the cardinals defeated Lynchburg and Salem to land the third place
spot in the Western District race.
Monograms were awarded to: Maynard Reynolds, all Western Districtg Honorable

The world greets us not with open arms
Nor smiling faee-but dread alarms
XVhich from her depths resound to us,
She-saddened and sick with sorrowful tears
Bourne from the womb of her hates and fears-
Awaits us yet, through all the years:
"Turn back!" we say. "How can we do
What other men have failed?
For wrong and strife have ever over greater
But no! The Earth cries out for what
We in our youth may give:
Undying strength and faith and love
That lend the will to live.
The world greets us not with open arms
Nor smiling face-but dread alarms

Handsome feathers his silken coat.
He jauntily fluttered his youthful wings
As he circled in the sky that day,
But his proud little head twirked sharp as a whip
When he spotted a brilliant array.
For below him there stood on the Wide smooth road ,
A coachman with high cocked hat,
With blue satin coat and vest of gold
Bright red breeches and black cravat.
The skylark drew nearer to this vision bright
That he might hear his alluring cry:
"O Skylark, dear Skylark, come hither to meg
I have wares to sell. Will you buy?"
The daring young skylark with sparkling eyes
Flew ever closer to earth,
For one dressed so gorgeous as the coachman was
Would surely have goods of worth.
"Come hither, dear Skylark, come hither to me!
Surely we can come to terms!
For a feather or two of yours, my dear,
I'll give you nice juicy worms!"
The skylark twittered and flitted about,
Then plucked a feather or two,
"That is no chore, O Coachman grand,
Tomorrow again I'll come to you!"
Each day it was fun and easier to do
To pluck for the coachman a feather,
So the finely dressed man and the gay little lark
Daily did business together . . .
But a day came sooner than skylark had dreamed
When-he could not fly at all.
Then with head tucked low, and steps too slow,
His happiness turned to gall.
Long in thought the skylark stayed-
But at last he raised his head:
"I know of a plan, a very good plan.
The coachman must give me feathers instead!
"Such a fine coachman is an honorable man,
That I do surely believe.
He'll hear my fair story, he'll listen to me,
And my feathers I'll soon retrieve."
The little bird struggled as never before,
To achieve fearfully late ambition,
He dug rich earth, he found fat worms-
He'd regain his worldly position.
Then he returned to the coachman grand
And uttered his solemn plea:
"O Coachman fine," he said to him,
I sell worms, you pay feathers to me!"
The coachman sputtered and looked askance,
Unable to perceive such terms. .
"Away," he said, "you foolish bird,
It's feathers I want, not worms."
The little bird trudged down the wide smooth road,
And his day was as black as night,
For the effortless life the skylark had lived
Was suddenly devoid of light.

'ur team really did fight hard this season, "But
they call it unnecessary roughness," quote
Charlie Willie as we are penalized 15 yards.
The Cards got off to a flying start September 14
on the Bi-State League ground playing School-
field. The grandstand-correction-bleachers
-were packed with hundreds of enthusiastic
G. W. fans. They kept yelling, "Our team is
red hot!!" The Redbirds turned back the Green
Dragons with a 13-0 score.
Then came Reidsville. The fans kept yelling,
"Our team is red-bot?" The score was .....

Our next game was with Arlington. There was
a lot of confusion in the huddle because Matney
wanted to take off his noseguard. But Co-
captain Bridges, for the good of the team, said,
"No." He was afraid they would be penalized
The next tangle for the Cards came when they
met Maury at Norfolk. This game ended in a
6 to 6 tie. Several of our linesmen, one in par-
ticular, proved to be so good that a sailor said,
"If Maury had worn red uniforms they would
have had five men in their backfieldf' This
remark refers to Johnny Reynolds, who was
really the spark plug of that game. Great play-
October 13 was the date of our next game and
this time we played John Marshall of Richmond.
There was really no justice in this game for we
walked all over their team with a 15 to 0 score.
Lynchburg came next and revenged their two
defeats of last year by turning back the Cards.
The score meant nothing and tbafs what we
gof. Any team can play football but you really
have to be good to be able to run around your
Then Hampton-and the great fun all had on
the chartered bus. And who were the brilliant
souls who slept up in the suitcase compartment
-with the otber bags?? None other than Nell
Marie Hamlin, "Slick" Williams, Landon Over-
bey and another Party whose name we won't
rnrnfion here. Some of the G. W. students cer-
tainly picked-up some swell souvenirs in Rich-
mond. Something to remember their good times
by. Incidentally, there was a game that day.
The score was . . . oh, let's not go into that.
But we did go into Winston-Salem the next
week only to lose, but we were not discouraged,
for next week, November 10, we played Char-
lotte-only to lose-but we were not discour-
aged for the next week we played Salem but we
were not discouraged for we tied the Wolverines
6 to 6. It was a great day for the Cardinals!!!!!
The next week heralded in Homecoming. For

Now that it's spring again we are reminded of
spring jokes and summer jokes-some are jokes
and some arerft . . . but nevertheless, we'll con-
tinue with this column and let you decide for
yourselves. We know you'll like them. Now we'll
stop twisting your arm!!!!!
Regardless of certain restrictions at school this year
we still had fun. Why, we even had our own
printing press in the basement-and it waxn't to
print money . . . no . . . we printed out-of-class-
permits and Pat "the penman" signed 'em. Now
it can be told!!!!!
A little on the serious side now-our memories of
G. W. are lasting and we'll always remember our
alma mater as the spot we had our most enjoyable
times and spent the best years of our lives. In fact
most of them. CNote to readers: We don't know
why Brewer's getting so sentimental-studs not

The only thing Adam would recognize if he came
back to earth would be the jokes.
Lindo White: Do you think it will rain?
Susie Upchurch: I don't know--it all depends on
the weather. fWe haven't decided wbctbrr this is
a joke or not. We really aren't trying to snow you.
But maybe you'll catch on in dew time. We adore
weather 'cause there's so much of itilj,

Patt Murphy: Phyllis Fralin thinks july the Fourth
was one of our kings.
I-I. A. Burnett: That's really funny. What country

Jeanne Dyer: What do you prefer best in a man
. . . personality, money, or appearance?
Nell Marie Hamlin: Appearance . . . and the
sooner the better!!!
How True, How True!
Graham Powers: What's the idea of telling Tommy
johnson I was deaf and dumb?
jimmy Randall: Oh, did I say deaf?
G. G. Fralin: I can't get in.
Buddy Carter: Oh, did your Mother lock you out?
G. G.: No, I don't live here.
Jimmie Hamlin: My Mother says I'm a wit.
Gordon Woody: Well, she's half right.
Bobby Jones: We'll shoot on the count of one.
Gene Verner: No, we'll shoot on the count of three.
Bobby: No, we'll shoot on account of we don't

THE Bic SHOT or G. W.
Llfllllil E BACK
by ANNIE TAYLOR
Through her halls we have walked, gaily laughing as we talked,
In her classrooms We have found the desired knowledge so profound,
And to her teachers who gave their time so that each of us might develop his mind
We extend our hands in gratitude as we now complete this final interlude.
Reviewing the years here happily spent, recalling how swiftly they came and went,
When to be a senior was our greatest aim and for this goal we strove to gain,
Now we find having won the race, we reluctantly turn to leave the place-
Seeing her walls so staunch and strong, surrounding the busy hurrying throng,
Her floors daily trod by scurrying feet, her halls often used as a place to meet . . .
We recall the assemblies we have seen fthat snake charmer was really on the beam!!
And of how daily we climbed those flights of steps Cas for going down, well, the banister
Then come the memories of dear old Gym, which we took merely to keep us trim,
Yet in the gym we did also eat, alistenin' to the music soft and sweet.
Then there was first period, only an hour long, and you sat lookin' at the clock, alistenin'
for the gong!
On to second class, then through third: commenced the fourth: oh dear, the thundering
It was just the Juniors on their way to chow-poor Seniors, another half hour to bear!
The last year, oh my! how it did fly, nine weeks' test a-staring in the eye,
And you wondered why--? oh why??
Did you have to suffer so, before you could die?
But then those happy dances by the old jute box, giving out with the jive many good trots,
And the figures that were cut by the bobby sox, never regarding the clock's tick-tocks.
It took all these things to make up school, just as a ball and a cue go to make pool,
And we wouldn't have missed it for anything, in fact we wouldn't mind doing it over
So to her, the school of whom we boast, we'd like to present this final toast:
Here's to you, G. W. High,
Hearts full of love for days gone by,
For within your walls we found cheer and joy,
An individual spot for each girl and boyg
We think of you now with gratitude sublime,
You will remain in our hearts, aye, for all time!

with hosts of other GW graduates, mix work and play at Averett College.
THERE WAS A LITTLE GIRL . .
'N SHE HAD A LITTLE CURL . . .
She was always very wise about dramatizing her femininity . , , She wore
wide belts to emphasize her tiny waist . . . and luscious sweaters to accentuate
her coloring . . . and she always bought good suits and tweecls and genuine
leather bags . . . 'cause she had found out . . . a girl can mix and match her
clothes to get new outfits . . . not only through high school . . . but 'till sl'1e's
graduated from college . . .
FRANCES KAHN was her favorite shop . . . I suppose because FRANCES
KAHN has always known . . . school things require
especial knowledge. l
