As time passes in a never-ending march, we, as tomorrow's leaders of the world, will
always possess the memory of days gone by-memories that the years cannot erase-
memories of our days at George Washington High School.
The thrills of Homecoming Day, the Senior Dance, the pride we felt as our battling
teams ran onto the athletic field, the dates at the Junior-Senior Dance, Class Day, Gradua-
tion-all combine to leave us with never-to-be forgotten recollections. The clamor of the
halls between periods, the dash and hustling to the cafeteria at lunchtime, the enguliing
drowsiness of students the last period, and the joy occasioned by the ringing of the 3:25
bell, too, will afford happy remembrances in the years to come.
We have enjoyed our stay at "Ol' GW." The six years of studying and extra-
curricular activities that we have received here have traced their indelible stamp, which,
as a mark of culture and refinement, will remain with us always.
MAIN HALL AT 8:40
Each morning as the school day begins, the main hall becomes
alive with students as they gather informally to discuss major
and minor issues of both school and out-of-school activities.
Relaxation and good humor predominate in this "calm
before the storm" period.

With its huge oak trees and wide lawns, the GW
campus is always especially beautiful in the fall.
The girls and boys too, add to the attraction.
The campus of our school provides an ideal back-
ground for these typical teenagers-Mr. and
Miss GW of 1948. No better students than
Bobby jones and jo Price could have been chosen
by popularity vote for such an honor and be so
worthy of it. The students are proud to have
these two represent the school as the average
Senior couple, popular, versatile, and friendly.

Miss LUCILLE WALTON
OUR BOOK TO A DEAR FRIEND
The seniors of 1948 feel honored to dedicate the CAVALHQR
to Miss Lucille Walton of the Science Department of George
Washington High School.
Her unsung deeds and friendly cooperation have won her
admiration and loyalty from both students and faculty. An
outstanding instructor in science at GW, she has recently
achieved national importance in the field of research. As a
result of her theory concerning a possible explanation of what
causes the orderly organization of cells into patterns and
designs presented to the American Association for the Advance-
ment of Science, she was elected a member of the Botanical
Society of America.
Being an art instructor and designer of the school ring are
only two of her contributions to the school. Miss Walton has
responded eagerly to any activity or program when called
upong she is tireless in her efforts to do what she can when
presented with problems of the students.
And so to one who is our teacher, our helper, and our
friend, we sincerely say, "Thanks, and best of luck-always."

Well, now youave seen the teaching staff
A "super group" are they,
A home room each has for his own
Where Work piles on each day.
These mentors greet us with their smiles
Each morning this is true,
But on the boards are lists of things
They have for us to do.
The lessons are so very numerous
For every hour there's one-
No wonder that the smiles grow dim
When teacher's day is done.

Quiet, please! ln the silent resort of G.W.'s extensive library, the students relax
from the grilling and drilling of teachers to find peace among the hundreds of books,
magazines, newspapers, and pamphlets to be found here. To quote most teachers: "If
you don't know the answer, go to the library, you're sure to find it there."
LIBRARY A D LIBRARY ASSISTA T
When Mr. Hitchcock said, l'Now smile!", he met a cheerful response from these
library assistants. Their duties, ranging from being sure that Shakespeare and Words-
worth do not stay out too long to putting Byron and Bryant in their respective places.
were numerous and tiring.
Sketching on the outside was rare in thc GW scheme of things, but Miss Walton
with her corps of artists yielded to naturc's spell on this occasion. This group have for a
long time been a "must" around both school and eityg they have done the art work for
Tlx' Clwaflvrlmx' and the CAvA1.naR: they have put on exhibits in the downtown storesg
and they have presented attractive displays in the school's show cases. As the class grows
in popularity, everyone realizes a need for better facilities and more equipment. Hence
tl'-ey look forward eagerly to the new high school building.

For the past several years head ofhcials from the Student Council have attended the
Convention of the Southern Association of Student Governments, last year bringing
back the otlice of Vice-President of the Association. During the 47-48 session Miss Wood-
son, Gwen Hoelscher, and Buddy Barker went to the convention held at Corpus Christi,
Texas. Gwen, as vice-president, presided at the banquet there.
Complete with robes and solemn looks, these judges, selected on a basis of scholarship
and leadership, try all cases of misdemeanor and breaches of honor committed by the
students. ln them is vested a great responsibility by the school, for their decision is final
and their recommendations are usually fullilled. ln the past few years the importance of
this group has increased until today it is perhaps the most powerful branch of the student

Judging from the happy, relaxed faces above, one might be led to believe that keeping
a ninety average is easy!
This group of students, in addition to having a high average in academic
subjects, have also demonstrated outstanding qualities of leadership, service, and character.
After having been approved by a faculty committee they are elected by popular vote into
the George Washington Chapter of the National Honor Society. Only Sophomores,
juniors, and Seniors are eligible.
The National Honor Society is sponsored by the National Association of Secondary
School Principals. This chapter, now under the direction of Mrs. Margaret Motley, was
chartered in 1943.

LITERARY AND PEPSI-COLA CONTESTANTS
As winners of try-outs in the literary field oflour school. these students have been
selected to represent GW in the state contest. This meeting, sponsored by the Virginia
Athletic and Literary League, includes competition in public speaking, prose and poetry,
reading, spelling, and debating. Those winning the district contest in Lynchburg will
take part in the State meet, which is held annually in Charlottesville.
Anne seems to have found the answer to one of the tough questions, or perhaps these
seven seniors are merely pleased at the opportunity the Pepsi-Cola Company has made
possible for them. According to this company's generous plan, live per cent of the senior
class in each Virginia high school may enter competitive examinations for a scholarship.
Only students who have maintained an A or a B average are eligible. A special aptitude test
eliminates many contestants and is later followed by a Scholarship Aptitude Test of the
College Entrance Examination Board on january 24, 1948. In 1947 Gene Wilson was
acclaimed winner in the semi-final contest.

"Now boys, here's what we've got to do," begins Mr. Christopher as he glances to
the 1947 chapter of the Washingtonians. Thus began a series of objectives listed by
the sponsor for general improvement of the school. With the establishment of the honor
system as their main goal for '47-'48, these six Seniors and two juniors endeavored to make
a better GW in appearance, good sportsmanship, and achievement.

DI TRIB Tl E EDUCATION
Miss McKinney, sponsor of D. E. work, seems pleased with her proteges.
The boys and girls work a minimum of fifteen hours a week in downtown establish-
ments, each day having one hour of retail training at the high school. They work regular
hours in such places as Herman's, Belk's, Rhodes', and Bibee's.
It is the object and purpose of this organization to bring about better ideals of sales-
manship among high school students: furthermore, to initiate them into the business
world. In April of 1947 the club became nation-wide in its scope, with the first national
convention held in Memphis, Tennessee.

small in number they were cheerfully received by all radio listeners.

The play is the story of the miracle which
brought love back into the heart of a grief-
stricken man and joy into his home. It
caused him to be once again loved and
respected by the people of the village.
Especially so was the third act, into which
the Nativity was artistically woven, skillful
lighting adding much to its effectiveness.
It is hoped that the dramatization will be-
come an annual custom of the school, to be
improved upon each year. This plan has met
with the approval of other schools and was
commended by the National Scholastic Pub-
lications of America.
G. .'s 0riginal
"The Miracle of the Castle" was GV"s
contribution to Danville's Christmas pro-
gram. Written and directed by Miss Doro-
thy Fitzgerald of the faculty, the play
brought out many old customs of the medie-
val Yuletide celebration. Blended into the
plot was an extensive musical score of
medieval and religious Christmas carols, se-
lected and directed by Miss Elizabeth Oliver,
also of the faculty, and rendered by mem-
bers of the Glee Club in costume. The set, a
medieval castle, was made by members of
our own student body, as were many of the
costumes. Much research was done so that
the set, costumes and even the general
atmosphere were in keeping with the time.
All of these were very effective and gave the
presentation a realistic air.

The season,s summary:
Using both the "T" and single wing attacks, GW's gridders fought their way through an
eleven-game schedule which was probably the hardest of any Virginia high school squad. In only two of
its games was Coach Vaughn Woodall's hustling outfit rated so much as equal to its opponents. The fact
that they won two, and tied three others, shows that they did better than many fans expected, even with
a mediocre season.
First of the ties was with the Green Dragons of Schoolfield, who fielded one of the strongest teams
in their school's history. Fullback Raymond Knick scored through the line for the Cards, and quarterback
Peyton Hatcher added the conversion. This was Knick's only appearance of the year, as he was hospitalized
before the second game, and remained out for the season.
Schoolneld came back to tally on an intercepted pass, and the game ended in a 7-7 deadlock, before
either eleven could push across more points.
Reidsville's Golden Lions were held scoreless by the Redbirds in the second tie at League Park, where
all home games were played. GW came through with several brilliant goal line stands, but was unable to
muster any scoring power of its own. The entire Danville line showed exceptional stolidity, with left
tackle Harold Keck and right guard Lindow White leading the way.
Journeying to Victory Stadium in Roanoke, on September 27, the Cards met their first serious
disaster. Although they unveiled a dazzling aerial attack, with halfback Sonny Nichols tossing to right
end Pat Furgurson and Pate Hatcher, they were crushed 38-6. The Redbirds scored when Furgurson lat-
eraled to guard Stokeley Fulton, who scampered across.
The Magicians, destined to be Western District Champions, used their T-formation deception and
superior experience to score almost at will. It was in this battle that Dan Overbey, first-string halfback,
broke an ankle and was lost for the season.

lligh. Although the final score of 37-6 was not indicative of the game's actual progress, the Cards were
again clearly outclassed. This time, their score was on a buck by Nichols.
Bowman Gray Stadium at Wfinston-Salem was the scene of the best-played game to that date by
the Washingtonians. Sid Wliitehegtrt, R. VI. Reynolds center, true-toed a last-quarter field goal through
the uprights to beat the Redbirds 3-0. On a slippery field, the visiting Virginians had outrushed and
outpassed their Tarlieel hosts, but to no avail.
To make their Homecoming week-end one of genuine gayety, and also as a birthday present to
Coach Wfoodall, the GW eleven pulled their biggest upset by trouncing Lynchburg on October 17. Hard-
played straight football was the order of the day as the clicking single-wing pushed over a 6-0 victory.
Kenneth White went off tackle for the tally, and shared outstanding-player honors with Captain Lindow
In the starting line for this game were the seven stalwarts who started throughout the schedule.
Kissie Martin and lfurgurson were at the ends, Keck and Elton Saunders at tackles, Captain White and
lfulton at guards, and H. B. liowlkes at center.
The backs were picked from a group of standouts which Woodall used alternately. They included
quarterbacks liill Barnes and Pate Hatcher, fullbacks Jacky Mowbray, George Haley and Buster Brown,
and halfbacks Kenneth Wliite, Buck Keeton, Nichols, and johnny Jones.

The scasonls summ ary:
When Coach Al Mathes summoned prospective courtmen to an initial workout early
last December, the future looked dim. Only five lettermen returned from the mag-
nificent 1947 squad.
Nevertheless, things took shape. Despite the fact that they dropped their first tilt,
one played at I-Iargrave, the Cards steadily improved. After Christmas they had come up
enough to take Ll 32-26 overtime contest from their close rivals, the Schoolheld Green

work in his third cage season. Martin and Nichols finished thei fi f ll '

work with well-oiled precision, and kept quite a few rival points off the scoreboards.
n 18 starts, the GXVites turned in ten victories, although only two were conferen
wins. They split their home-and-away series with Lynchburg and Salem, but fared worse
in dropping two to Roanoke. Besides these schools in the Western District Group I loop,

After several indecisive weeks in which everyone was sure there would he no girls'
basketball squad this year, a group of determined students won out, and arrangements
were made to have the I947-'48 Ladybirds. Coached by Miss Virginia Ifasley and Mrs.
lieorge Ingram, the misses rapidly moulded themselves into a successful sextet.
liarly in the season Connie Bray was made acting captain of the Lady Cardinals.
Connie, a tall, sharpsliooting forward, is well-liked and respected for her outstanding skill
Among the returnees from last year's team were Doris Crews, who topped the
scoring procession in '47, and lris Haraway, who was also responsible for quite a few
markers. Nancy W'inn and l'ranees Groves were the top-line holdovers at guards.
On the Ladybirds' schedule were Sehooltield High School, Averett College, Chatham
lligh, llan River, and several other aggregations. The ClXVites' expert ball-handling and
shooting made easy work of some of these opponents, while early in the season they
seemed, at times, unable to roll.
The girl's energy in getting for themselves a court team, as well as their determina-
tion to make it a winning one, was admired by the students and other local citizens.

Baseball was emphasized on a larger scale in 1947 than in many years at George
Washington. The Redbirds, under Coach Vaughn Woodall, returned to conference com-
petition and played a number of other strong nines.
Three home tilts were night affairs at League Park-those with Schoolfield, Roanoke,
and Salem. All games away from Danville were played on the host school's field, except
those at Roanoke's Piedmont League Park and at Salem, where the Shenandoah League
field was used.
The ever-intense rivalry with neighboring Scboolfield was whetted to new heights
by the split two-game series. First of the clashes was taken by the Cards in a tense scrap
which ended 3-2. Only two weeks later the Dragons evened things up by a similar score.
Although they failed to turn in a win against their western district Group I foes,
GW's batsmen gave both their conference opponents tough competition. Probably their
best showing was in the second Roanoke game, which they dropped S-4. Regular first
baseman Mike Greenberg toed the slab, and pitched a brilliant but vain nine innings.
A better-than-even slate was chalked up against other opponents, including Martins-
ville, Reidsville, and South Boston.
Monograms were awarded to twelve of Woodall's diamond performers. They were:
Co-captain Bill Caldwell, pitcher and outfielder, co-captain Jacky Mowbray, second baseg
Stokely Fulton, third base, Allen Greenberg and Allan Knick, shortstopsg Mike Green-
berg and Melvin Ryan, first basemeng Buddy White, pitcher and outfielder, outfielders
Buddy Stutts and Pat Furgursong Catcher Richard Wells, and infielder Clarence Barker.
For the second straight year CiW's tennis team smashed to the Virginia group l
championship in 1947. Coach M. Roy Hood headed the netmen in a season which saw
them undefeated in conference p-lay.
Bill Smith and Buddy White alternated at the top slot, with Bill Caldwell, Robert
Rainey, Bill Carson and Charlie Vfilliamson filling out the singles sextet in most matches.
Lindow Wliite paired with Willianason in number three doubles.
Against western district opposition, the Cardinals were superlative. They over-
powered Lynchburg twice, 7-2 and 9-0, and in their only match with Roanoke coasted
to a 7-2 victory.
On May 9 and 10, Coach Hood's IICEIDCD reached their peak. In their first clash
of the state championship play-offs, they blanked Fairfax High. Next day, in the finals
against Thomas Jefferson of Richmond, they won 6-3, thus annexing the VI-ISL Crown
and the season's fifth triumph.
The 1948 racquet-wielders will be coached by Marion Wells, since Hood has returned
to his native Mississippi after several successful years of handling the squad.
Returning to the court wars are only Smith and Carson of this championship group.
and at present the outlook is for a squad built from the ground up.

ATIO AL ATHLETIC CHOLARSHIP SOCIETY
Each year, a select few of the school's athletes are tapped for membership in the National Athletic
Scholarship Society for Secondary Schools. Organized in 1946 by Gerry Quirk, the George Washington
Chapter was compo-sed of ten charter members.
Besides leading lives which exemplify the highest type of citizenship and sportsmanship, boys ITILISI
meet high scholastic standards to be accepted, and of course, earned a monogram for participation in
athletics. These scholastic requirements are that the athlete must have maintained an average equal to or
higher than the general average of the school.
Stated purposes of the NASS are: to foster high scholarships among athletes, to elevate the ideals
of sportsmanship, to stimulate a desire for balanced training, and to develop more outstanding leaders in
the secondary schools of the United States.

GW is proud to have itself represented in the field
of military tactics. The Cadet Corps of our school,
having been organized in 1942, has functioned as a
military body for the past six years under the super-
vision of Captain Herbert Caldwell, who left in 1946,
and Vaughn Woodiill, his successor, who has served
the past two years.
Striving for military discipline, courtesy to ofli-
cers, and perfection in both drilling and the manual
of arms, the corps has developed into a compact body
of serious students who realize the value of being
militarily prepared for any occasion necessary. It
has grown in importance until today it is a major
unit in the functioning of the school, guarding the
restricted areas of the hall during lunch or assisting
at public performances.
This year the unit was re-organized into a single company which increased con-
siderably the number of men in each platoon and reduced the number of commissioned
ofiicers almost in half. One hundred new rifles of the Springfield 1903 type were bought
and issued at the beginning of the year, a major improvement over the ones formerly used.
Maneuvers and hikes were conducted several times during the year to better prepare the
boys who may some day lead our armed forces either in time of peace or in turmoil of war.

To THOSE WE LEAVE BEHIND
I wish to leave a poem here
For all my youthful friends so dear,
A memory verse to tell them how
We were young as they are now,
That we once thought we'd simply try
To pass the course, or just "get by"g
But now too late we wish to say
We'd like again to pass that Way
To delve more deeply into lore,
More deeply far than e'er before.

CLASS OF FORTY-NINE SPEAKS
Next year we'll rise and take your jobs,
And struggle then to do
The task you leave us, Seniors,
But half as well as you.
We have high hopes and new ideas,
And following after you
We'1l roll up our sleeves and go to work
To see our dreams come true.
We shall miss you through next year,
Although We make out fine,
So thank you for the chance you give
To us, the class of Forty-nine.

We used to sit and Wonder
And sometimes we would ponder
About the people we would be
On a coming high school day.
We thought about our glory
All told in song and story
And dreamed our dreams of greatness
In our childish little way.
But man's forever changing
High plots and plans arranging
To quite a different pattern
From the ones he used to lay.
By some We are lamented
For we've become contented
Because we're on the height supreme-
The Sophomores today!

HOW TO BECOME A SENIOR HIGH
It takes a lot to qualify
To be a big ole Senior High,
If you don't know quite how it's done
Then listen closeg it's loads of fun.
You'll have to be an all-round sport
On baseball field or tennis court-
At games, at plays, in classes too,
In fact in every single thing you do.
You've got to take an active part
In all campaigns the Seniors start
And also see your task go through,
So others can depend on you.
And then to turn to subjects light
Some things you've got to do up right:
You see you simply must get by
With a trick or two quite on the sly.
It would be sad to leave this school
And never glimpse detention's rule-
Or feel your heartbeat as it falls
When teacher says the office calls.
But over all remember this
These are the years the most you'll miss,
So make each minute count, it's late,
Because too soon, you'll graduate.

Where is 'Chris'?
Wfe are proud of the pace of G. W. High,
For she wins with a grace that will never die!
We are proud of the town that gave her birth,
Cf the hands of the men who have proved her
As we turn o'er the page of our memories
And review all the thoughts of our yesterdays
We renew our belief in the torch held high,
In a truth and an aim that will never die!

Wllai' 'lo ela
Choosing the right career to follow
after high school days are over is a
problem faced sooner or later by
every girl in the senior class.
For many past graduates, telephone
work has offered most of the things
a girl looks for when seeking a
place in the world: pleasant
associates . . . clean, wholesome
surroundings . . . high pay . . .
regular increases and opportunities
for advancement . . . paid vacations
. . . the knowledge that the work
itself is important and interesting.
There are opportunities in
telephone work after graduation.
The telephone company is
"a friendly place to work."
