I don’t understand the woe¬ ful looks for school is out for another day. Diane Corbin leads Ernest Baxa, Jerry McNichols, Jimmy Feldman, Leah El¬ liott, and fellow classmates in daily morning devotions to start the day off right. This exercise is held in most homerooms every morning before classes begin. The library is for the purpose of reading and for reference work. However, these th ree industrious students—Joe Skinner, Martha Far¬ ley, and Ellen Flowers—don’t seem to realize this. ' Well, we’ll forgive them; after all, they are seniors. MIR. AND NGTON Elizabeth Oakes and Ray Beale two school-spirited students, were chosen by their schoolmates as representative seniors. We, the Seniors of George Washing¬ ton High School, dedicate our 195 6 annual to the memory of our fellow schoolmate. Max Campbell. Max lost his life as a result of a blow received in a football scrimmage game. He was a friend to us all and we will cherish his memory. The Max Campbell Fund In the late fall members of the Boosters’ Club, a civic organization, and members of the G. W. Monogram Club conducted a city-wide fund raising drive for the purpose of present¬ ing some worthwhile contribution in memory of Max. With the cooperation of WDVA, a " lights on’’ night was held in which partici¬ pants picked up donations from houses where the porch lights were burning. All the pro¬ ceeds from the programs at the Warwick game went to the fund, as did the profits from the food and drink concessions. The latter was through the courtesy of the Schoolfield Teen- Age Club and Danville merchants. The Monogram Club itself contributed one hundred dollars from its treasury. Many neigh¬ boring schools mailed in contributions through their principals. In all nearly three thousand dollars was raised. Max’s family is to decide how this is to be used as a fitting memorial. Already they have contributed an oxygen tent to the Life Saving Crew, who gave such in¬ valuable help during Max’s illness. FAC ULTV Time will not show, Beneath new trees, A group of sages Like unto these. Chairman of the Board of Trustees, R. P.

UIIDIICIIARY The Judiciary of George Washington High School has for its purpose the hearing of cases involving dishonest practices and breaches ot promise. It suggests suitable punishment for stu¬ dents involved. This organization consists of four seniors, lour juniors and two sophomores. The Student Coun¬ cil officers—Van Holton, Martha Farley, and Nancye Ferguson are also the officers for the Judiciary. The Judiciary members help to promote school projects. They also serve as guides for the orien¬ tation of new students entering George Washing¬ ton High School in the coming year. Another duty of this group is the tabulation of votes in all major elections, such as the Student Council held at the end of each year. This organization is connected with the Student Council. It is the governing body of it and Judi¬ ciary members are members of the Student Coun¬ cil. It is one of the most important of the school organizations. Van Holton President Martha Farley Vice-Presideut Nanc ’e Ferouson S ecr el ary-T reels tirer Mr. Thomas Houser Advisor 1 82 STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council of George Washington High School is one of the most important of all school organizations. It consists of one represen¬ tative from each of the forty-one homerooms and ten members of the Judiciary. The homeroom representatives are chosen for their qualities of school spirit and leadership and must maintain a C average. The Student Council is the law-making and law-governing body of G.W. It helps to set the course of conduct for the school and each mem¬ ber of the organization sets the example for others to follow. The representatives, after a preliminary dis¬ cussion, introduce the ideas to the homerooms for approval before any planning begins. Also any plans of students go from the representatives to the Student Council organization. Some of the projects undertaken by this organ¬ ization are the Red Cross Drive, Community Chest Campaign, and March of Dimes Drive. The homerooms compete with each other. Another im¬ portant function is the school improvement pro¬ gram. The orientation program for new students en¬ tering George Washington High School the fol¬ lowing year is planned and carried out by the Stu¬ dent Council members. The new students are shown around the school and are told of some of the school activities and organizations. An assem¬ bly is given in honor of them. First YOU ' : V. Grow, M. Phinizy, L. Evans, M.

The object of the Washington Chapter of the National Honor Society is to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote worthy leadership, and to encourage the development of character in pupils of George Washington High School. One must be a junior or senior in high school with an average of ninety-one per cent to be eli¬ gible for membership in this organization.

Fifteen per cent of the senior class and fifteen members of the junior class can be selected for membership. In November the Honor Society had an induc¬ tion ceremony as an assembly program in order to acquaint more students with the chapter and to honor the new members. This year, as well as last, the society’s annual project was to introduce a honor system to the fac¬ ulty and students of G.W. Also a banquet was held at the end of the school year at the Green Lantern. 84 1 QUILL AN Quill and Scroll is the International Honorary Society for High School Journalists which w ' as or¬ ganized April 10, 1926, by a group of high school advisors, for the purpose of rewarding individual achievement in the held of journalism and allied fields.

In the spring the Press Club, to which all staff members belong, sponsored a Bunny Girl Contest as a fund-raising project. Johnsie Choate, president of the Press Club, was aided by the other officers and members in planning the annual Christmas Party. A big event, complete with Christmas tree, mistletoe, colorfully decorated blackboards, red and green crepe paper streamers, refreshments, and fun, the party proved to be a tremendous success.

CARIDIINA TALENT SCOUT STAFF Serving as a literary detective, the Cardinal Talent Scout, for the second year, strove to publish the choice writings of talented GWites. With the helpful guidance of Mr. Smith, the staff, headed by Esther Alfriend, collected the top short stories, poems, and essays written by students in the various English classes and assembled them into a magazine that everyone would enjoy. Illustrations for the Talent Scout were ably drawn by Sarah Shel- liorse, Donald Clark, and Johnsie Choate. In March an assembly was given to arouse interest in The Talent Scout in order to get more subscriptions. This year over 750 subscriptions have been solicited. In order to raise extra funds for the publication, the staff sponsored an Open House in the cafeteria following the GW-Lynchburg basketball game. In addition to students mentioned above, other membe ' LS of the literary staff are Evelyn Vincent, Associate Editor; Caro- lee Kushner, Business Manager; Jimmy Elippen, Circulation Manager; and Vera Maxie and Jane Cook, typists.

J90F MODELS CLUB The Models Club, better known as the Model-Ts, is a fairly new organization at George Washington High School. It w ' as started year before last in the early spring. This club is a group of girls, principally in the Junior and Senior grades. These girls are interested in the aspects of good grooming and etiquette. The programs have included talks and movies on good posture and the correct way to w ' alk. Some of the more interesting meetings have been programs on hair styles, how ' to w ' ear clothes, how ' to apply make-up, fixing your nails, and general points ot eticjuette and good manners. Four members of the Models’ Club, Ellen Flow ' - ers, Mary Jane Martin, Anne Thompson and Anne Powell get some tips on photography at Belk-Leggett ' s Studio. One of the more recent meetings was a panel of four Hi-Y boys w ' ho answ ' ered questions asked by the girls. They told how they liked girls to dress and act on dates, in school, and at parties. The officers for this year are Mary Jane Martin, President; Jo Anne McGhee, Vice President; Jo Wheatley, Treasurer; Sylvia Bragg, Secretary; and Martha Farley, Parliamentarian. Several of the models from this club were chosen to be in the Automobile Fashion Show sponsored by the Belk-Leggett Company. Also, several of the girls modeled during High School Day at Thal- himer ' s, April 28 . The president, Mary Jane Martin, has been pictured in clothes from Belk-Leggett’s Young Fashion Center and they have appeared in the Danc ille paper for advertising the new ' look in clothes for Spring.

The chorus is a group of high school boys under the direction of Mr. D. E. Hendren of the faculty. There are about thirty-eight boys in the group. The Men’s Chorus has done an excellent job, performing in assembly and for various civic clubs. They lead devotions in assembly and usually present a number or two that are varied in scope. ' I ' he Madrigal singers are shown giving their magnificent rendition of " Three Blind Mice. " The group consists of (.laude Davis. Dot Ashbury, Mr. Hendren.

The group, consisting of 80 choristers, participates not only in assembly programs at GW but sings each year for various civic clubs, schools, and community activities. Several members of the club represented GW at the All-Western chorus held in Radford during February, and others attended the Massanetta Choral Camp during last summer. These are just two of the ways in which the Glee Clubbers exhibit the proficient training given them by Miss Oliver during the year. The Glee Club has been rated as one of the best in the state in past years and certainly the blithe- hearted singers this year are no exception, for they have contributed much to the musical atmosphere of their school and community.

These classes, taught by Miss Dorothy Fitzgerald, learn all about the stage from two important aspects, The stage construction class learns the intricate steps in building scenery and backdrops, lighting effects and many other behind the scene tricks. The dramatics class studies the different types of plays and characters, diction, voice projection and various related subjects. Cinderella, Meredith Wilson, bows to her Prince Charming, Virgil Grow, as King and Queen, Rolvix Patterson and Linda Saunders, look on approvingly. Billy Chears, captain of the guard, has just announced her arrival. These work together with the Thespians, a club forming the core of dramatic activity within the school. Each Thespian must have a knowledge and understanding of the basic principals of stage construction. To meet the requirements set by the National Thespians Dramatic Elon- orary Society aspirants may participate or assist in the production of plays. After qualifying for mem¬ bership in the local chapter 605, they become 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 be well-known quotations from the classics or lines from the latest plays presented by the drama students. The outstanding programs for the year have been " Cinderella” and " Time Out for Rodney, " which was presented before several parent-teacher groups within the city.

The George Washington chapter of the Future Homemakers of America, a national organization, is led by President Patsy Kinder, Vice President Mary Frances Seamster, Secretary Nancy Warren, and Treasurer Jane Bowling. The club is composed of se ' enty-one members, all strixing to become future homemakers. The F.H.A. creed emphasizes the fact that the participants realize they are future home¬ makers of tomorrow and they " face the future with warm courage and high hope,” so they may establish " homes where truth and love and secur¬ ity and faith will be realities.” With club sponsors Miss Reinhart and Mrs. Moseley, the club is indeed an active one, having both a business and a .social meeting each month. Some ol their activities this year have been the celebrating of the 10th National birthday, win¬ ning first and third places in the fashion review at the Danville Fair and a Christmas project of sending food and clothing to help needy families. Patsy Kinder, club president, blows out the candle at the loth birthday party of E. H. A. i 105 j Liz expresses her disapproval of the outcome of a debate at the l.R C. meeting. Maury is more concerned about his ice (.ream roll while Dutfy wholeheartedly disagrees with Liz. The purpose of t he International Relations Club is to stimulate greater interest in all national and international affairs. In order to become a member of this club a student must have at least a ninety average in social studies for at least one semester and also be in senior high school. At the present time there are (wenty-hve active members. During the forum meetings, held twice a month at the home of a member, each has an opportunity to express his own views as well as hear the opinions of others. Maury Matthews is head of the I.R.C. with Nancye Ferguson and Helen McMann, Vice-president and Secretary-Treasurer respec¬ tively. Under the able guidance of Miss Doro¬ thy Jordan, sponsor of the club, the I.R.C. has become one of the most active clubs at G.W. During the year the International Relations Club has discussed current topics. Some of these topics were " Voice of America,’’ segregation, immigration laws, federal aid to education, exchange of infor¬ mation with the Red world, and admission of Red China to the United Nations. The debating team also presented a program for the International Relations Club on the pro and con concerning federal aid to education. In the spring the I.R.C. had a picnic as an outing for the year. Everyone brought food and a fine time was had by all. Soon the International Relations Club will elect the officers for the next year from the junior mem¬ bers of the dub. ❖ c ❖ First row: D. Richardson, K. Gardner, H. McMann, M. Matthews, N.

Thomasson and the purpose of the club is furthering scientific interests among the potential scientists in G. W. The small number of members are chosen by the science faculty on the basis of scientific ability, interest, and aptitude in laboratory work such as biology, chemistry or physics. The reason for the limited membership is the fact that this is a discussion and research group. Some members of the Science club listen intently while Mr. G. L. Thomasson, adviser, explains a difficult theory, Lynda, Kent, David and Carl stand as Carolee, Ken and Phyllis take it easy. Meetings are held bi-weekly in the mem¬ bers’ homes. Topics of discussions include such subjects as dreams, supernatural forces, satellites and cosmic rays. The forum sponsors a science project pro¬ gram. Some of the members participated with such entries as collections of the elements and new inventions. In the spring the Science Forum members give an assembly to which the whole school is invited. There the members give science dem¬ onstrations and do chemical experiments mak¬ ing everything from perfume to bombs. The exhibit txjrders on the supernatural in the eyes of the ordinary student.

A« To promote sportsmanship and to stimu¬ late interest in a variety of sports through in¬ tramurals is the aim of the Girls’ Athletic Association. Each girl in George Washington who par¬ ticipates in at least one of the intramural sports—basketball, volley ball, table tennis, shuffle board, or softball—is automatically a member of the G.A.A. The point system en¬ ables those girls who have shown active parti¬ cipation in the athletic program through the year to earn points toward a monogram. In the spring the G.A.A. sponsors an annual G.A.A. Carnival at which each of the extra-curricular clubs at G.W. operates a booth. Also each year the G.A.A. works with the Psysical Education Department in producing a May Day program. The G.A.A. is under the guidance of Misses Norma Roady, Joanne Williams, and Eleanor Sanderson, physical education teachers at G.W. Patsy Ayers was elected to head the G.A.A. this year, while Jo Annette Savage was chosen as vice-president and Betty Vass, Rosa Pettit and Dixie Hilliard were elected to serve as secretary, trasurer, and points chairman rspec- tively.

The twelve were elected in the spring by members of the faculty and Monogram Club. The purpose of the group is to promote school spirit among all students. The cheerleaders this year were sponsors of the newly-organized Pep Club, led cheers for all ath¬ letic events, decorated the ball park for games and the cafeteria for the FFomecoming Dance, and organ¬ ized all the pep rallies. Each member of the squad serves for two years and may be re-elected. This Junior Varsity Cheer¬ leading Squad is composed of nine peppy girls from 8th to 9th grades. They were chosen by members of the Faculty and Monogram Club for a two year term. Their main job is to lead cheers at all J.V. basketball and football games. They also pro¬ mote school spirit in the lower grades. Last spring girls who would be students here at G.W. this tall were eligible to try out. r-irst roll ' : E Browder, R. Pettit. S. Seeley, E.

FOOTBALL This season the GW Cardinals had a less successful year than was the previous one. The Cardinals handed in their worse record since 1950-51, Coach El Wilson’s hrst year, they ended with a 9 loss and 1 win record. This season’s record can be attributed to lack of experience and injuries. The Cardinals felt many a stern blow this year as a result of injuries. Nevertheless, the Red Birds kept their determination for victory. The squad started cut the season with a victory over Reidsville. The Tarheels jour¬ neyed to Danville with a Double A Championship record for the previous year. They fought throughout the whole game to no avail because they returned defeated by a score of 7-6. The next game found GW traveling to Salem. The powerful Salem team had no trouble in defeating the Cardinals by a score of 13-0. Then we hnd GW again traveling, as they moved into Hampton for a bang-up game. Hampton, who trailed the hrst half, came back the second half to win the game 18-7. GW, still on the road, turned to Covington with a hopeful outlook the following weekend. The Cardinals now sporting a 1-2 record fought very hard for a 20-0 victory. After this game GW returned to Danville to prepare for one of their big rivals, Lynchburg. At the hands of Lynchburg, GW suffered their tliird loss of the season by a bruising score of 27-0. hollowing the loss «{ 120 j- to Lynchburg, Danville met Warwick at League Park. The Warwick boys came into Danville with victory in their eyes. They left victorious after defeating the Cardinals 7-0. After los¬ ing to Warwick, the Cardinals started back on the road. They journeyed lo Martinsville for another let-down. The Martinsville team, a Group II school sporting an undefeated season, proved too much tor the Cards. The Cardi¬ nals made a tine showing but came out on the short end 27-6. The next game found GW traveling to Fleming where they were once again rated as under¬ dogs. Here the Cardinals put on their best showing of the season with a 19- 13 upset over Fleming. GW once more returned home for their last two games. Roanoke, a candidate for Stare Championship, moved into Danville with all hopes for an easy ictory. They were not disappointed and returned home with a 26-6 win, reassured of a chance for the State Championship. The last game of the season found GW facing Halifax County and, for the hrst time, rated to win. This cv ' as the Annual Shriner’s Game and found a nice turn out of 3,500 fans. GW, although rated to win, found the battle hard but finally were victorious 13-0. Each year the team selects a Most Valuable Player. This year the award was given to Julian Clifton, first-string half-back for the Cardinals. We congratulate Julian along with each mem¬ ber of the team. David Shultz (4) cracks Lynchburg ' s defense for a first down for G. W. Redbirds. End " Van Holton (29), f ollowed by other G. W. lettermen, rushes in to tackle Halifax ball carrier. Outstanding players on the gridiron this season are: at quarterback Leon Hawker; at halfback Julian Clifton and David Shultz; at center Ronnie Bryant; at guard Sonny Kinser and Jimmy Turner; at tackle Bobby Sizer and John Matney; at end Bob Yelton and Van Hol¬ ton; and at fullback Ray Beale. The other boys receiving monograms, with whose help the team would not have existed, were Clinton Pruitt, Ronald Chaney, Leon Lewis, Billy Jones, Billy Norman, Tommy Nance, Ronald Sammons, Peyton Eggleston, Terry Wilmarth, Kenneth Shelton, Terry Alfriend, Gordon Watkins, Tommy Vaughn, Ed Crumpton, Dickie Eralin, Bob Martin, and Billy Blankenship. The four man¬ agers who also received letters are: Kenneth Henderson, Jesse Madows, Kenneth Dean, and Jimmy Woody. 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 situa¬ tion and to obtain city-wide support for the teams, the Boosters ' Club was organized in 1953. This club is com¬ posed of all citizens who are willing to pay a small entrance fee and are anxious to publicize the athletic con¬ tests. il2iy First row: C. Crowder, C. Grott, J. Crowder. F.

BAILIL The Baby Redbirds had a more suc- c ' es.sJul .season this year than their big brothers. The Danville Jayvees stacked up a 3-1 record, under the coaching of Larry Paladino. This year’s season found the Danville Jayvees traceling to Reidsville for their hrst game. The Baby Redbirds came back with a gleam in their eye after defeating Reidsville by the score of 25 to 12. Next the Danville Jayvees prepared to mee! Halifax County on their own ground The Baby Redbirds were seeking theii second victory. The Jayvees took early command of the game and won easily by a score of 20-6. After their win over Hali¬ fax County the Baby (axrds were traveling once more. This time the Baby Cards met their match as they lost their only game of the season. The boys from Hargrave proc ' ed to be too much when they set the Baby Cards back by the score of 7-0. The last game of the season tound the Baby (airds faced by Lynchburg. This almost proved a defeat for the Jayvees but finally they emerged victorious, outpointing Lynchburg 8-6. This team gives promi.se for the future and should make Cioach Wikson and the Varsity team lookup. Five outstanding j.V. ' s from w lH)m the coach expects great things next year are pictuied above. They are Joe Tompkins, Lewis Everett, Stuart Hester, Ronnie Collins, anrl Vh E. Samuels. J 122 h k: I’hese two men are the backbone of the George Washington football team. Dr. Arey and Dr. Kinser have both been on hand at the G.W. football games, taking care ot all injuries. These two have given assistance for the past several years w ' ithout receiving any compensation. They feel that it is the least they can do for the hometown team. The school along with each member of the team would like to express their appreciation for the hne job the two doc¬ tors have done. We hope to see them for many years to come there on the bench with the coaches and players. Dr. Prentiss Kinser, Dr. Lurton Arey The Danville Life Saving Crew, headed by Captain James B. Gardner, was on hand willing to help at all the home football games. It is not the first year that they have rendered this valuable service. For the past three years members have been stationed on the held in case of an emergency. This group, organized in 1945, has since played an active part in the welfare of the whole city. We thoroughly appreciate their faithfulness and willingness not only in helping us during the football season, but in their other civic work. rirsl row: Capt. fames Cfardner, Supply Sgl.

GW walked away with the Western District Crown, holding a 11-1 conference record. This year’s " Cinderella” team came through the season surprising all. The cagers hnished the season with an over-all record of 17-2. Coaches Paladino and Franzen discuss plans for what looks like the best basketball season in many years.

The teams traded victories on their home courts. The outstanding game of the season was the defeating of Jefferson Senior High, defending State Champions. The game ended with both teams tied at 46 all. With only a few seconds left in the overtime, GW’s David Crawford came through with a field goal and gave GW the victory. Also during the regular season’s play Lynchburg upset Roanoke, helping GW to obtain the Western District Crown. The school bows to the outstanding play of Leon Hawker, Richard Haymore, Bobby Cheek, Donnie Cole, and Van Holton. Hawker was the big gun for GW, scoring over 250 points and ending No. 17 in the state’s leading scorers. Haymore also hit for over 200 points, while Cheek, Cole and Holton chalked up more than 100 each. The cagers traveled to Richmond on March 8 to participate in the Group I State Basketball Championship. The Cardinals’ hrst game was against Highland Springs of Richmond, in which the Cards won 64-49. The next game found GW of Danville facing GW of Alexan¬ Bob 5 ' elt()n grabs the rebound while other Cardinals watch Haymore sets the ball loose from Halifax player, while Hawker tries to recover. dria. The Cards were not as successful as in the hrst game; they dropped the game 64-49. This knocked the Cards out of the champion¬ ship round. In playing the consolation game against Washington and Lee, the Cards also dropped their second game by the score of 56-37. Although the Cards made a poor showing at the State Championship, they were praised by all for making their brilliant season’s showing. The showing was attributed to the line team¬ work shown by the team throughout the entire season. Receiving honors on the team this year were the following; Leon Hawker was elected All- State and Captain of All-Western District team. Richard Haymore was placed as honorable men¬ tion for All-State and second team of All- Western District. Bobby Cheek received honor¬ able mention for All-State and first team All- Western District. Don Cole and Van Holton received honorable mention for All-Western District. Coach Franzen will have to build from two regular players to finish out his first team next year. Three of GW’s first team will leave be¬ cause of graduation; along with them will go part of the reserve bench. Each year the Cardinals have a surprise bas¬ ketball team, so we feel that GW will come through with another strong team next year. -i 126 b R rst roic: R. Callis, B. Bennett, S. Patterson.

The courtmen defeated Hargrave Military Academy in the Joe, Dick and Bill—three top players—warmup before a matih. Opening match, 7-2, but fell to the Greensboro High netters, 8-1. In a return match with Hargrave the following week, the Academv team avenged their first loss by winning 5-4.
