" George Washington Mr. Music Man himself — Gene is right at home whether with the school band or a local orchestra. He has a way with most any musical instrument and, as choir director of Mt. Vernon Church, has displayed his fine baritone. Working with WBTM radio, at school, and in the community, our versatile maestro has proved his winning personality. To you, Eugene Stryker — our loyal friend and companion — we, the 195 5 graduating class, wish to express our gratitude for your won- derful service to us. We will long remember the interest you’ve shown in GW activities and your partici- pation in our community affairs. iCONTENTS FACULTY The Mr. and Mis,s GW contest brought a week of excitement. Sarah and Peggy were kept busy changing the number of votes cast for each candi- date. From these seven candi- dates — Fred, Bob, Stanley, Larry, Neal, and Ralf — comes the question, ' Who will it be?” Everybody was saying, " Which one of these girls — Peggy, Nancy Craig, Betty, Joan, Patsy, Cath- erine, or Anne — will be chosen the typical GWite?” Jimmy and Sandy placed last-minute votes on their favorite contestants while the crowd gathered in the hall waiting for the 3:30 bell to close the contest. Nancy Craig Williams and Fred Leggett, chosen as typical seniors, enjoy an autumn day in the woods. At Dan River Mills Jimmy Robertson, Jane Crutch- field, Eva Stegall and Sam Arnett inspect thread in the Research Depart- ment. Sonny Williams, Carolyn Farmer, Shirley Ludwick, and Charles Buck listen intently to an explanation of sales as they attend a tobacco auction. Anne Bruce and Ellen cer- tainly do look industrious on entering our Danville Public Library. All those books don ' t seem to faze Bobby. " Joy to the World ’ carol the members of the Mt. Vernon Youth Fellowship while the cold night air whips around them. ■N fs « disi SL ihsdj fcfimjuL ihsL planA. Mr. Bonner studies plans for the new high school. O. T.

B. Wilson, who had retired to Florida. We shall never forget his Latin classes. Under Mr. Wilson’s capable instruction, we stud- ied grammar, vocabulary and finally, Caesar. His jokes, stories, and songs added va- riety to our weekly Latin Club meetings. The things we learned from Mr. Wilson were not limited to the text. He demonstrated the values of friendship, fellowship and good humor. The retirement of Mrs. Nora Payne Hill in June of last year marked the end of a grand era at GW. For over 30 years she guided The Chatterbox, lifting it and the name of George Washington High School to the top in high school journalism. Her sharp wit and superior abil- ity gained her our respect and admiration; she has left a place among us that cannot be filled. d22b VhM0ERwe(?rF dL wadu idJianqsL at bi L First row: S. Elliott, E.

The mem- bers of this group are selected in the spring by a committee of faculty and Monogram Club members. Each cheerleader serves for two years and may be re- elected. The squad’s list of responsibilities includes leading the cheers at all athletic events, decorating the ball park for games and the cafeteria for the Homecoming Dance, and arranging all pep rallies. N. Snead, P. Browder, M. Hurd, M. Croxton, G. Nix, I. Baum. JUNIOR CHEERLEADERS Chosen by members of the faculty and the Monogram Club, the Junior varsity cheerleading squad consists of six girls in the eighth and ninth grades. These sports-loving girls are led by Pat Browder. The junior cheerleaders lead the yells for varsity and jayvee football games, and jayvee basketball games. In November four additional girls — Betty Grow, Susan Payne, Doro- thy ' Womack, and Sue Bonner — were added to the squad. d80) Formed in 1949, the 1955 George Washington High School Band is com- posed of sixty members including five majorettes. Participating in many outside functions as well as high school perform- ances, the band performs for assembly programs, pep rallies, parents ' open house, and for all home football games. This year they attended three out-of-town games — Lynchburg, Roanoke, and Hope- well. The band also took part in city parades and performed in the District Festival, where the group received a rating of Excellent. Douglas Biggs, Jimmy Flem- ing, Alton Corpening, and Fred Dwight Richmond are members who won honors by participating in the All-State Band. Band officers are Jimmy Fleming, stu- dent director; Douglas Biggs, president; Artie Tompkins, vice-president; Jackie Shaw, secretary-treasurer; and Sara Dean Shelton, librarian. ofL IcL and, a)WiL Left to right: M.

This organization sponsors the Homecoming weekend which includes a gala bonfire, the presen- tation of the queen and her attendants, and a victory dance. In the spring a big picnic is held for the members and their guests, at which time the athletic department is presented a gift. Along with mem- bers of the faculty, the Monogram Club selects the cheerleading squad. To become eligible for membership in this club, a boy must have won a letter in one of the seven varsity sports at GW. These include football, basket- ball, baseball, wrestling, track, tennis, and golf. The new members are initiated at the end of the basket- ball season in a long-to-be remembered ceremony. Officers for 1955 are; Buck Hundley, president; Ray Beale, vice-president; Jimmy Woody, secretary- treasurer; and Kenneth Payne, sergeant-at-arms. Bobby Crawford and Jackie Phillips attempt to sell Mr. Bacon a program at one of the football games. d 82 b oA, did. ihoASL qihl To stimulate interest in a variety of sports and to promote spirited rivalry and sportsmanship through intramurals is the aim of the Girls ' Athletic Association. Any girl who participates in after-school intramurals is automatically a member of the G.A.A. The point system enables those girls who show active participation in the girls ' athletic program throughout the year to earn points towards a monogram. The G.A.A. sponsors after-school intramurals for the fol- lowing sports: basketball, volleyball, ping-pong and tennis. In the spring there is an annual G.A.A. Carnival at which each of the extra-curricular clubs at GW sponsors a booth. Every year the G.A.A. works with the Girls’ Physical Educa- tion Department in directing an assembly program on May Day. Mary Jane Evans was elected to head the G.A.A. this year, while Anna Glenn Cox w ' as chosen as vice-president and Teresa Johnson, Dixie Hilliard and Patsy Ayres w ' ere selected to serve as secretary, treasurer, and points chairman respectively. Under the guidance of Misses Norma Roady, Carol Wil- liams, and Joanne Williams — the physical education teachers — the G.A.A. has become an active part in the school life of each girl at GW.

Through a schedule of 10 games, GW emerged undefeated, ha ' ing won 8 and tied 2 of the contests. The season began on September 10 at Rox- boro on the Tarheels ' field, where GW showed its terrific offense for the first time and scored 5 times, the final score being 32 to 12. Against Salem (in the first home game) the Cardinals displayed their defensive ability, making the contest a 27 to 0 victory. William Fleming of Roanoke, the second team to play GW at Dan- ville, held the Redbirds to a scoreless tie. This game was a battle of defenses and the Cardinal line attracted statewide attention. To finish off the home-ground series, Covington arrived and was sent back defeated more soundly than the score, GW 26 — Covington 20, indicated. The Redbirds next journeyed to Lynchburg, where they defeated their longtime rival, E. C. Glass, by a 39 to 7 score; the second string playing most of the game for GW. Following the wake of Hurricane Hazel, the Cardinals arrived at Warwick and raised almost as much havoc. It was a very hard-fought battle but GW managed to take the contest 8 to 0. This victory established GW as a contender for the Group I crown. Almost 5000 fans braved the chilly weather to see In the annual Shrine Game against Martinsville, Brooks proves that it takes more than one man to stop him. the annual Shrine Game. Even though the Cardinals moved ahead in the first half, the Bulldogs rallied and it became a most interesting game, the final score being GW 26 and Martinsville 19. Mt. Vernon arrived in Danville for the Redbirds’ homecoming contest and was completely outplayed, the game ending 34 to 7. Next GW journeyed to Jefferson of Roanoke where the western district championship and possibly the state crowm were to be decided. Eor the first time in the season GW was behind by 13 to 6 at half time but making a spectacular comeback, the Cardinals marched 60 yards to tie the score 13 to 13, where it remained until the final whistle was blown. To finish off this highly successful season, GW met the Blue Devils at Hopewell in a Thanksgiving day contest and the free-.scoring game ended 54 to 32 in favoi of the Danville team. Even though GW finished third in the state race, having a 6-0-1 conference record, it had the most outstanding statistic.s — 259 points scored in 10 games. The highest .scorers on the team were Pryor Millner and Larry Brooks with 61, and Ray Beale with 46 points. Linder the direction of head coach El Wikson and assistant coaches Larry Paladino, Joe Gurtis and Charlie Franzen, the " Wil.sonmen " ran up a total of over 2000 yards With Pryor Millner Hundley, in the Lynchburg game, carries for a first down, as Beale clears the way. cuuL SLdJjdyli h jct cl MaficL I Sept. 10 G.

Kneeling-. Coaches — J. GuRTis, L. Paladino Standing-. Coaches — C. Franzhn, L.

G. Carter, A1 Bailey, Bobby Marks, Johnny Moore, and the managers, Jimmy Woody, Tommy Bowles, and Jackie Jester. Due to the lack of interest for high school sports by the citizens of Danville, George Washington was having a difficult time financing many of its sports. To improve this situation and to obtain city-wide support for the teams, the Boosters’ Club was organ- ized in 1953. This club is composed of all citizens who are willing to pay a small entrance fee and are anxious to publicize the athletic contests. A number of members were soon recruited and money was earned by selling programs and GW buttons at football games. The attendance at these games increased markedly and the team gained much moral support. In return for these actions the GW coaching squad arranged for the Booster Club mem- bers to meet the players personally and to show them films of previous football games. ' !90b ihsL cujvsisiA. h) mjodtcpL Under the expert coaching of Larry Paladino, the Baby Cards went through a very satisfactory season, winning 6 and losing only 1. The season started on September 16 in Altavista where the Danville Jayvees won a 32-0 victory. Hali- fax lost 20-2 to the Cards, and Reidsville fell to the side 13-12 after a hard-fought contest. On October 7 Helena High School was defeated 7-6 and on Oc- tober 13 Martinsville lost 7-0. In the second home- game of the season the GW Jayvees suffered their first and only loss, a 6-0 defeat by Roxboro. To close their seven game schedule Paladino’s boys journeyed to Halifax County High School and trampled the Jayvees there 18 to 2. The boys receiving Jayvee monograms were Dick Fralin, Bob Martin, Kenneth Shelton, Richard Hay- more, Leon Ashby, Luther Bradley, James Penning- ton, Randy Beale, Ed Ragland, Carrington Smith, David Spearman, Ronnie Bryant, John Arey, Max Campbell, James Clark, Billy Cook, Billy Clifton, Paul Denny, Peyton Eggleston, John Matney, Billy Norman, Bobby Stone, Joe Towler, Gordon Wat- kins, and Jackie Jester, manager. Bcb Martin carries the leather against Halifax, while other GW backs get ready to dear the way. This impressive record shows that there are many talented players on this team who in a year or two will become valuable members of the varsity team. J. V. EOOTBALL First row; left to right: E.

With three of 1954’s starting five graduating, Lranzen had a diffi- cult job of forming a new ' team. Members of this year’s squad include Jackie Phillips, high scorer. Jack Barnett, Larry Brooks, Pryor Millner, Van Holton, and Leon Hawker, all of whom played varsity basket- ball last season. Donnie Cole, Bobby Cheek and David Shultz moved up from the Jayvee team. Other players are Gerald Hutcherson, Maury Matthews, Wayne Hudson, Bruce Shore, Joe Skinner and Gerald Lewis. As this publication goes to press, the GW Red- birds have an eight to six record, and are still in the running for a berth in the state tournament. The most exciting games of the season have been against GW’s bitter rival, E. C. Glass of Lynchburg. In the first game, the Cards defeated the Hilltoppers 44-42, but Lynchburg revenged its loss by outscoring GW 51-68 a few weeks later. Other hard-fought contests included the Halifax game, w ' hich GW took 64-51 and the game with Salem, w ' ith GW winning 64-49. Contests w ' ith Cradock, Covington, Salem, and Jeffer- ,son of Roanoke remain to be played. The Cardinals are experiencing a rebuilding .sea.son and next year’s schedule is expected to be rather rugged. Several promising Jayvees will join the var- sity squad, but the team will lose the .services of Larry Brooks, Jackie Phillips, Jack Barnett, and Pryor Millner through graduation. 7 ' op row: Larry Brooks, Jack Barnktt, Pryor Millnlr.

New to the GW Physical Education Depart- ment this year was basketball coach Charlie Fran- zen. Before coming to George Washington, Mr. Franzen, who played both football and basket- ball in college, was an instructor in El Paso, Texas, and Marion, Virginia. Coaching the junior varsity squads for the second consecutive season was Larry Paladino. Coach Paladino, also a two-letter man at college (football and baseball), plays professional base- ball during the summer months. Like Franzen, he served both as a football and basketball coach.

V. BASKETBALL The Junior Varsity team continues to be one of the best Jayvee squads in the state. With Larry Paladino as coach, the Baby Cards won ten games while los- ing only three. The victories included double wins over Woodrow Wilson Junior High, Roxboro, and E. C. Glass. The GW squad defeated William Flem- ing, Martinsville, Halifax and Salem, but lost to Jefferson of Roanoke, Martinsville and Halifax. With a large number of boys joining the squad, the coaches had much material from which to pick. Outstanding players during the season were Richard Haymore, Ronnie Bryant, Tommy Dalton, Clyde Travis, Bobby Ashby, David Crawford, and Wayne Crawford. These boys formed the starting team while Yeatts, Womack, Campbell, Anderson, Martin, Gray, Meadows, and South made up the reserve group. Despite the fact that several players will move up to the varsity squad next season, the Jayvees are expected to continue their good record in 1956. and, qaod ApodAman kifL Clyde Travis goes up to score for the Danville Jayvees in the Lynchburg game while David Crawford watches.

Being undefeated in conference games, the Cardinals in an eighteen game season suffered only one defeat and one tie. The GW team, after playing magnificient ball all season and winning the Western District crown, went to Mt. Vernon High School in June to compete for the championship. In the first championship game, with Smiley pitching, Highland Springs lost by a score of 8 to 2. Adkins pitched the second game and the Card- inals defeated Washington-Lee High School, 6 to 3. Maury fell to the Cardinals 9 to 4 when Hundley hurled in the third championship game. In the last game, a return match with Maury, Smiley again came to the mound and at the end of 41 2 innings with GW ahead 13 to 0, the Maury coach conceded defeat. Winning letters this season were Crawford, Phillips, Douglas, Hawker, Brooks and Williams in the infield; Parker, Hubbard and Smiley in the outfield; and pitchers Adkins, Hundley and Cow- an. Stanley Houghton should also be congratu- lated for managing his second championship team. The team was again coached by " Lefty” Wilson, whose patience, experience, interest and knowledge have proved invaluable in producing champions.

WRESTLING With a year’s experience behind them, mem- bers of the GW wrestling team improved notice- ably. After an intensive training period under Larry Brooks and Kenneth Payne show one of the many wrestling holds. Coach Gurtis, the matmen won their first victory with a 26-24 decision over Beaumont. Then came a 3-41 loss to William Fleming and a 13-21 defeat by the VMI freshmen. Powerful Jefferson of Roanoke scored 32 points against the Danville matmen who managed to take only 16 points. Beaumont revenged its form- er defeat 34-20 and the Cardinals went to Flem- ing to be pushed aside 6-36. Jefferson came to Danville for a return match, winning 38-13. A second victory was scored by the GW boys when they defeated Greensboro 23- 19. In the match four Danville wrestlers pinned their opponents. The most outstanding GW wrestler for 1955 was Charles Buck, who won all of his eight matches, scoring a total of 30 points. Ray Beale was next with 18 points and Tommy Nance came in third with 16. Other GW matmen included Clifton, Matney, Gery, Satterfield, Harley, Sam- uels, Williams, Moose, Sammons, Shelton, Slayton, Groff Lewis and Pruitt. As this publication goes to press the local wrestlers have return matches with Greensboro and the VMI freshmen remain- ing on their schedule. -(98 b anjcL oiVc dndsJt -msin. hsujficL bhswiksAiL, Calvin Fowler sails over the high hurdle. TRACK In its fourth year of existence, this year ' s track team proved to be the greatest in the school ' s his- tory. ' Winning four out of five meets and placing third in the district, the CW cindermen estab- lished many new records. In all, eleven school records were broken. Ray Beale established a new shot put record of 44 feet 8 I 2 inches. The school high jump record of 5 feet 7 inches was set by Bobby Hill and a broad jump of 19 feet 6 % inches gave Jack Thomas a new school record. Jimmy Melvin, GW’s fastest track man, set records of 10.4 sec- onds and 23.8 seconds for the 100 and 220 yard dashes respectively. Calvin Fowler, highest point scorer on the team, also set two records — 15.4 seconds for the low hurdles and 20.1 seconds for the high hurdles. Other record holders are John Keeling with 52.8 seconds for the 440 yard dash, Leon Lewis with 2:09 for the 880, and Jack Taylor with 4:56 for the mile. Keeling, Taylor, Kinser and Lewis teamed up to run the relay in 3:45.6. The outlook for next year’s track team is very good.

Jimmy Flippen, number one man, tees off. After opening the season with a IOI 2 to 7I 2 victory over Tri-City, the team went on to defeat Bassett 141 2 to 31 2’ Drewry Mason 18 to 0, Jefferson of Roanoke 12 to 6, and again Drewry Mason 27 to 0. Their first defeat was a 6 to 12 loss to Greensboro, but the team traveled to Glenn winning an 18 to 0 victory. In the eighth match of the season the Tri-City team avenged their earlier defeat by a score of 10 to 8. After a 12 to 6 victory over Bassett, the Cardinals were twice defeated in return matches, losing to Jeffer- son by a score of 21 2 to 31 - ' and to Greensboro 6 to 12. The season ended triumphantly with an 18 to 0 victory over Glenn. Outstanding this season were Jimmy Flippin, Raymond Mustain, Ray Johnson, Virgil Grow, Tommy Hughes, and Bill Overcash. With five of six lettermen returning, the prospects for next season appear to be excellent. J 100 ! amt CL dtccmpionAhifL Jil ismuA, Winning four out of five games with other Group I schools in our district, the tennis team, under the able leadership of Coach A1 Mathes, had another good season. In brief the season was as follows: beginning with a 6 to 3 victory over Hargrave Military Acad- emy, the Cardinals next defeated Lynchburg 5 to d. The next match, w ' ith Greensboro, ended in a 6 to 6 tie because of darkness. In the fourth match of the season Roanoke w ' as defeated 6 to 3- The Cardinals then lost matches to U.N.C. Freshmen, N.C. State Freshmen, and to Lynchburg. The lat- ter in avenging a former loss, gave the Cardinal team its only defeat in the Conference play. The George Washington team then returned home to defeat Jefferson of Roanoke and Hargrave Mili- tary Academy both by the score of 8 to 1 and to w ' ind up our conference play with a 5 to 4 victory over Lynchburg. This victory clinched the Western District Championship for GW. With this title the Cardinals went to Williamsburg for the state- wide play-offs. There Alexandria defeated them by the close score of 4 to 5, thus ending GW’s successful season.

Each representative must have at least a C average. All activities of the Student Council are intro- duced to the homeroom by its representative for approval before any major setps are taken. The Council helps to initiate and formulate the course of conduct for the student body and seeks to lead in the attainment of this objective. An orientation program for the new students was the main function of the Student Council for the past year. Over 450 students from the elementary and junior high schools were shown the buildings and campus. An assembly program was given by the representatives to introduce the visitors to the various activities an d courses at George Wash- ington High School. This year the Student Council conducted a March of Dimes drive with homerooms competing with each other. Daily results were posted on a bulletin board in the main hall and the home- room contributing the most was given special recognition. A Tackey Dance was sponsored to benefit this drive and an admission of ten cents per twenty-five pounds was charged. In February the homeroom representatives sponsored a Sweetheart Ball to celebrate Valen- tine’s Day. At the dance, the Queen of Hearts, along with her two attendants, was presented. This year s royal court included Jo Ann Owen, Sarah Jordan, and Martha Ann Earles. J 108 y quidsud oWc Achoot Jimmy Inciram Stanley Adkins Alice Jo Barker Mr. Thomas Houser President Vice-President Secretary-treasurer Advisor JUDICIARY A branch of the Student Council, the Judiciary of George Washington High School, plays a major role in the government of the student body. The group is composed of two sophomores, four juniors, and four seniors plus the Student Council president, vice-president, and secretary- treasurer, who hold the same offices in this organ- ization. A student, to be eligible for Judiciary membership, must have a scholastic average of eighty or above and must never have appeared before the group for any reason. The main duty of the honor court is the trying of cases in the school which involve breeches of honor and other dishonest practices. After reach- ing a verdict in such cases, the group recommends to the office and faculty members suitable punish- ment for the students involved. Another Judiciary duty is the tabulation of votes in all major elections, especially the selec- tion of Student Council officers. In the Orienta- tion program for incoming GW students, mem- bers of the Judiciary serve as guides. Every few years, this organization investigates the GW clubs and their activities to determine if each group is fulfilling the requirements stated in the charter granted them by the Student Council.

HONOR SOCIETY To create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote worthy leadership, and to encourage the develop- ment of character in pupils of George Washington High School is the object of the Washington Ch.vptf.r of the National Honor Society. One must be a junior or senior in high school w ' ith an average of 92 per cent to be eligible for membership in this organization. Members are chosen by the principal and four members of the faculty on the basis of scholarship, service, leader- ship, and character. Only 15 per cent of the senior class and 15 members of the junior class can be selected for membership. This year the Honor Society had an induction ceremony in a March assembly program in order to acquaint more students with the chapter. New members were honored and certificates were given to the graduating members. Last year, the society’s annual project was to produce more interest in forensics at GW by having members of the Honor Society participate in these speaking activities. Also a banquet w ' as held at the end of the school year at the Green Lantern. Officers of the National Honor Society are: Carolyn Edwards, president; Gary Moore, vice- president; Jimmy Farley, treasurer; Peggy Ann Clark, secretary; and Miss Lucile Walton, sponsor. i nob WGhfL ihcVc olmA, QUILL AND SCROLL Inti;rnational Honorary Society for Hk.h School Journalists. Quill and Scroll was organ- ized for the purpose of encouraging and rewarding individual achievement in journalism and allied fields. The Society takes an active part in raising standards in its field and in directing the course of high school journalism.

The Cavalier. the yearbook of GWHS, received a Medalist rating from the judges of the Columbia Scholastic Press Association contest. This award is presented to only ten per cent of the books receiving a first place rating in each group, which is determined by Miss Josephine Estes Anne McClung Ad visor Editor-in-Chiej the enrollment of the school. The GW annual has consistently received a first-place rating in S.I P.A. and C.S.P.A. contests, which fills each year’s staff with enthusiasm and desire to make their book " the best ever.” To begin the year’s activities, the staff mem- bers presented an assembly program entitled " The Cavalier Through the Ages ” which launched the subscrip- tion campaign for the year. For the purpose of raising funds to help meet the rising costs of publishing a year- book, a " Mr. and Miss GW’’ contest was sponsored and name cards were sold. Each member of The Cavalier staff sincerely hopes that the 195 5 yearbook has captured the spirit and personality of GWHS, so that in future years this book will serve as a reminder of our high school happiness. dll2b jto hsdfL juA.

Mary and Martha were heard begging staff members to get " just one little ad.” While Chigger and Jo Anne tapped away on the typewriters, trying to make the write-ups readable before the dead-line, Miss Estes and Anne were seen searching under desks and in dark closets for that " I know I put it here but it’s gone now” book. At Patsy’s house everyone met to think of " cute” and " original” comments to go under the seniors’ names. But were those refresh- ments good ! Sara Dean was heard complaining, " Who can think on a full stomach!” All " spies” and " trouble-makers” were sent out of the Cavalier room as the staff members strove to produce a Cavalier that will be hailed as " the best yet.” In " The Cavalier Through the Ages” the yearbook staff showed how GW’s yearbook played an important part in the history of the world. We all thought we deserved Oscars after our per- formance. i 113b whilsL ihoASL Mofidcd, ihs FirU row: K. Lea, S. Shelhorse, J. Berman, B. Booker, J. Choate, C. Edwards, M. Saunders, K. Hughes, L.

CHATTERBOX Under the careful guidance and assistance of Miss Roberts, The Chatterbox, GW’s bi-weekly publication, continues to be one of the fore- most papers in the state. Accurate news stories, features, columns, and sports stories contributed by past and present journalism students appear in each issue. The Chatterbox has maintained only the highest journalistic standards since its birth in 1922. This is quite an accomplishment in view of the fact that so many varied talents have served on the paper through the years. Among its honors, The Chatterbox is proud of having secured such awards as the All- American Honor Rating, CSPA Medalist, Quill and Scroll International Honor Rating, First Place Winner SIPA, and the Gallup Award. In order to uphold the high standards reached by the journalists before them, it is the staff’s job to keep up the good work by striving tor a " better than ever” Chatterbox.

Adviser CHATTERBOX A familiar sight to all GWites is the appear- ance of the Green Duck. This " green creature” is the symbol of the " world renowned” newspaper of George Washington High School known as The Chatterbox. To be held in the memories of all staff members are the many hours spent in the Pressroom — the hours of work, jokes, clowning, and card games. The fun enjoyed by all the " ducks” and " visitors” who dropped in will never be forgotten. The Green Duck is the symbol of the Press Club to which all staff members belong. Sponsoring the Bunny Girl Contest and High School Day at Her- man’s are just two of the fund-raising projects undertaken by this group. Every Christmas the Press Club Party is a real event. The room is gayly decorated with a big Christmas tree and the boards are bright with color. Soft drinks and other refreshments are provided for everyone and fun is had by all. Songs are sung and jokes cracked throughout the party and a cute Christmas gift and rhyme is given to each staff member. To complete the year, there is a Press Club banquet featuring talks by profes- sional journalists and other guests. Press Club Officers — Carolyn Edwards, Kathy Hughes, Linda Jo Saunders, and Gary Moore — talk over plans for Green Duck Day with Mr. Allen Herman. d ll5 t jcmx imqsA, oltL and, nmv First rou ' t M.

Under the direction of Miss Elizabeth Oliver, the club participates in many of the school assembly programs besides having a busy outside sched- ule. Each year at Christmas, the singers present The Messiah to the Danville public. They have sung before various civic clubs, at the dedica- tory service for Memorial Hospital, and have prepared programs for the World Day of Brotherhood and the World Day of Prayer. Several of the Glee Club’s eighty members attended the All-Western Chorus held in Roa- noke during the month of February. GW was also represented at the Massanetta Summer Choral Camp. During the past few years the Glee Club has been rated as one of the best in the state, and GW is very proud of its choral group. Seated: C. Williams, S. Boswell. Front row: J. Patterson, S.

GLEE CLUB At one time or another, everyone wonders just what is causing those strange shrieks and howls which float out of room 312 during first and sixth periods everyday. How ' ever, their won- derment would be even greater if they were to see just what actually w ' as happening inside the sacred portals. Just why would a small, energetic lady be hopping on and off a chair, and making faces at her students? Well, the plain, simple truth is that the lady is GW’s own Miss Oliver, and she is doing her best to keep up the Glee Club’s super reputation. By standing on chairs, the little lady overcomes her lack of stature. Her facial expression is her way of getting just exactly the tone she desires. Whatever her means, she accomplishes her goal — a Glee Club which receives the highest ovations wherever it is heard. Seated: C. Huff, Secretary-Treasurer, K. Payne, Vice-President. Front row: D.

This has become a tradition and an integral part of the observance of Christmas in Danville. Miss Oliver was justly proud of this year’s performance which took place on the evening of December 9 in the school auditorium.

The George Washington chapter of the Future Homemakers of America, a national organization, is composed of sixty-eight members. Club officers are Pat Frizzell, president; Barbara Jones, vice-president; Helen Alderman, secretary; and Shirley Stokes, treas- urer. The F.H.A. creed emphasizes the fact that the par- ticipants realize they are the future homemakers of tomorrow and they " face the future with warm courage and high hope,” so they may establish " homes where truth and love and security and faith will be realities.” This club is indeed an active one, having both a business and a social meeting each month. The school profits from the attractive bulletin board, frequently changed, kept in the hall. Also the club members had an excellent exhibit at the Danville Fair, appeared on television programs, and catered for two civic ban- quets. The following were participants of the F.H.A. installation ceremony: R. Keates, P. Rhodes, B. Vaughn, J. Wilson, P. Sahms, P. Frizzell, President; P. Parries, P.

PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB GW ' s Photographv Club is one of the school ' s most promising organizations because it is producing the staff photographers of The Chatterbox and the Cavalier. John Bonner, who is club president, holds both of these jobs now. Bi-weekly meetings provide the members with an opportunity to learn more about photography. Some of the programs have included color slides, demon- strations, and a trip to a local photography concern. The club has as its prime purpose " to promote in- terest in all phases of photography.” Many of the members belong to the Danville Photography Club, and will not drop their interest when they finish high school. Members learn every phase of the work from the developing of a roll of film to enlarging. More recently Mr. G. L. Thomasson, who is the faculty adviser, has opened a new field to the members, that of color photography. A contest is held between members for the best human interest picture for which a prize is awarded and the picture is put in the Cavalier. This and a picnic in the spring highlight the year’s activity for the Shutter- bugs. Photography Club members — George Rucker Penn, Eva Stegall, and Bob Cotton — snap Mary Jane Martin, a member of the newly formed Models’ Club. imy The Thespians of George Washington High School form the core of the dramatic activities within the school. After having met certain requisites, they are selected from among tal- ented young aspirants for the crown of stardom. Requirements set by the National Thespians Dramatic Honorary Society are attained from actual participation or by assisting in the pro- duction of the plays. Each Thespian must have knowledge and understanding ot the basic prin- ciples of stage production. After qualifying for membership in the local chapter 605, they be- come affiliated with the national society. Many of these young actors and actresses may startle or completely puzzle their fellow classmates with the following statements: " Have you descended on a moonbeam?’’ or " You don’t look like a fool, but you’re a woman.” These may ivhllsL dfiamodtioiu woA. ihsoA wJjl caL B ill Nelson and Carol Johnson, playing the leading roles in " Jane Eyre”, watch Lambsie Penn perform. be well-known quotations from the classics or lines from the latest plays presented by the drama students.

The Science Forum, one of the long-established groups at GW, is composed of a small number ot students with G. L. Thomasson as advisor. In its purpose of furthering scientific interests, discussions include such topics as space travel, the Maco lights, dreams, and unusual animals. Meetings are held bi- weekly at members’ homes. This year for the first time, the forum sponsored a science project program. Many students participated with such entries as new inventions and collections of the elements. Selection of members is based upon the candidate’s interest in science and his having taken one year of laboratory work, such as biology, chemistry or physics. First row: A. McClung, B. Klaff, M.

A student must be in senior high school and have at least a ninety average in social studies for one semester to become a member. At the forum meetings, held twice a month, the members have an opportunity to express their own views as well as hear the opinions of others. Sandy Pilipowskyj heads the I.R.C. this year, with Carolyn Edwards as vice-president. Jo Anne Owen and Martha Jordan hold the offices of secretary and treasurer respectively. Under the guidance of Miss Dorothy Jordan, the I.R.C. has become one of the most active clubs at GW. Mary Jordan and Kenneth Passa- maneck discuss the difference be- tween communism today and pure communism.
