   £x lUbris0he Compass 1935 Publisheb by Che Senior Class of the ieorge fflashington High School Alexanhrta, Virginia Volume (One Number (Dueporetoorb If. in years to come, this first volume of The Compass can direct our thoughts to old familiar faces, the old familiar places, the glorious days of our high school life, and the great and even the silly things we used to do. then it will have served its purpose.Dedication We. the Senior Class of 1936. dedicate this first volume of Thk COMPASS to our teacher, friend, and helper. Mr. Irving Lindsey.JJistortral jSkrtrh 1785—1935 The first permanent free school in northern Virginia was established here in Alexandria in 1785 by George Washington. It was known as the Alexandria Academy. The first president was the famous Revolutionary War surgeon. Doctor William Brown. Washington made a generous provision in his will for the upkeep of the school. As the student body grew larger, a new building was annexed, and gradually, other free schools were established in the city. However, these were only elementary schools. It was not until 1915 that Alexandria had a free secondary school— this being the Alexandria High School. Later George Mason was built. And finally, in 1935. came the crowning glory—our own George Washington High School. From 1785 to 1935—from the Alexandria Academy to the new. modern George Washington High School—one hundred and fifty years of progress!MR. WILLIAMSMR.

Iik M!1 J Ga-Gaasf3)rntatrs of 1950 1 ar Diar '' Monday I went to the reception at the White House to-night given by President and Mrs. Clifton Davis in honor of Secretary of Treasury and Mrs. Leonard Blondheim. What fun it was to talk over old times with old friends. Miss Rachel Shelton, private secretary to the President, was there, flitting from guest to guest in her customary fashion. As I was leaving. I met Walter Batcheller. Avis Daniels. Margaret Mellon. Richard Keister, and Mildred Bradley just arriving. I'm invited to a dinner party at the home of Secretary and Mrs. Leonard Blondheim and am going with A. L. Stewart. Gertrude Smith, and Robert Roberts. Tuesday I've just finished reading that best-seller. "To-day and Yesterday.' by Walter Carlton. At the tea given by Lucille Claggett. Caroline Forbes. Jo Jean Brown, and Elma Campbell, the book was the main topic of discussion. It is truly a "chef d oeuvre." Wednesday To-day has certainly been an exciting one! I went to Army Day parade with Pearl Shulze and Kathleen Parsons. Imagine our surprise on seeing none other than Major General William Fielding Lewis leading the parade. Then, of course we scanned each face, eager to find other old friends. And sure enough—there were Major Milford Cowling. Major Mitchell Burroughs, and Major Robert Craddock. Lane Donald and Billy Ale had grandstand seats near ours. Over at a hot-dog stand we spied Moxley Ervin. Paul McEwan. Dorsey Garten, and John Mudd. 7 hursday The new house I just bought from Elmer Smith. Francis McMenamin. and Norman Burch. Inc., is really lovely. My old friend. Mary Jane Purvis, planned it with Barbara Hudnutt's help as an interior decorator: the house is really perfect. I’ve planned for an open house to-night. My guest list is much too long to put here but a few old friends that are coming whom I haven't seen in years are: Winona Slagle. Billy Ross. Lillie Azema. Bedford Penn. Rita Hamilton. Irma Tothill. and Gordon Zimmerman. Sunday 'Look it easy to-day. I bought some pretty flowers from Bernice Bull, who owns a large modern florist shop, and took them to a friend of mine who is sick in the hospital. Stopped awhile at the desk to talk with Lois Brown, superintendent, and Chadwell Hawkins, head surgeon. They told me that Ruby Lee Bourn has just joined the staff as dietitian. 41 THE COMPASS :: 1936To-day’s papers are full of the decision which Chief Justice Thomas Moncure rendered on the Child Labor Law. It was very interesting to note that Justice Llewellyn Wood and Justice Grayson Grant voted in favor of it too. I must get a dress described by Nancy Smith in her fashion column to-day. She certainly writes most interestingly. Monday I'he baseball season began to-day. and old George Washington High School is certainly well represented. Paul Shu is now president of the Senators, and Louis Robinson is manager. A lot of 36 graduates were there too. among them Rmma Robertson. Benny Burrell. Violet Rodamer. Tommy Hnnis. Ruth Stine, and Russell Wells. And talking about sports—I read the other day that Grace Mosher had captured the tennis championship in the Olympics. More power to you. Grace. Tuesday Have just returned from the reception given by Vivian Haislip for those two great chemists. Arnold Reynolds and Robert Rumshin. who have just won the Nobel Prize. They have really done something in chemistry—as they did in High School. Of course. Vivian invited all of their old friends. The former Gwen Watts was there—Miss Fashion in person. She has just returned from Paris. Then there was Norman Cary—our Senior class president of 36. Well, he’s still president—only now it’s of the First National Bank of Alexandria. The two Dunns were there—Katherine and Jane. Katherine has just returned from Paris too. and brought most of its styles back, it seems. You know, she's head buyer for Woodward and Lothrop now. As for Jane, she’s an accomplished musician. Her concert in Constitution Hall not long ago was really marvelous. T hen, at the punch bowl. 1 stopped to talk to Dorothy Wells. Kenneth Thrope. Mary Margaret Lynch, and Bill Worden. On the other side of the room. I noticed Virginia Greenwood. Marion Hicks, and Helenora Rowland. Speaking of chemistry. Lester Van Middlesworth has just discovered a new element and become quite famous. Wednesday I flew up to New York to-day to see the stage play of Robert Rutledge’s latest novel "The Hims of Her Whims’ in which Virginia Nixon played the leading role. Archie Norford is really making a name for himself on Broadway. too. This last play was his best work. As usual. I saw a number of my old high school friends there. A party composed of limma Dyer. Mary Stephens. Rebecca Miller. Pearl Harrison. Leslie Arnold, and William Coakley sat a few rows in front of me. Thursday Had luncheon to-day with Louise Rose, who is now secretary to the Mayor of New York City. After luncheon we went to an art exhibit featuring theworks of Frances Peyton. We had planned to meet Grayson Hennage. who now holds the international championship for spelling. Elizabeth Brown. Louise Ennis, and Adele Wolfe. After we arrived. Helen Pitts. Nancy Lynch, and Coleman Armitage joined our party. Friday I read to-day that the International Typist and Secretarial Association held its annual convention here, in New York, yesterday. The paper listed Albert Finnell, Charles Summers. Edward Finegan. Dorothy Spittle. Elaine Burke, and Marguerite Seymour as having done outstanding work in the association. Marjorie Hacker was awarded a medal for speed in shorthand, and Mary Browne won the medal in typing. Incidentally, they were all in the class of 36 of George Washington High School! Saturday To-day. while exploring New York. I ran across a quaint little pastry shop, which, to my amazement, I found to be run by Evelyn Sperling and Beatrice Kleinman. John Harrison. Thomas Carter. Jack Lynch, and Harry Travis were there, sampling their excellent pastries. Henry Brown and Frank Bullock were seemingly enjoying it too. How some men can eat! Sunday I went to "The Little Church Around the Corner" this morning with Dorothy Cole. Thelma Simmons, and Mildred Cline. Irene Dodge, who is now organist there, played a beautiful prelude of Bach. Also attending the service were L.inwood Barnett. William Rhodes, and Francis Pullman, who now live in New York. Monday How good it is to be home again—"far from the madding crowd.” A little rest now and then does one no harm. Tuesday Went to a picnic given by the Alumni Association of George Washington High School at Rock Creek Park. A few that I hadn't seen for a long time. Walter Hodges. Jack Crouse. Virginia Jefferson, and Morris Freidson. were there. Wednesday To-day I attended a fashion show sponsored by Garfinckel’s. The clothes were designed by Virginia Nichols and modeled by Virginia Norton. Saw Neva Copperthite and Ruth Hughes. Thursday Sylvia Posner came to see me to-day. She told me that Sidney Stark has a position now with the Standard Oil Company. Jacob Catrow. Richard Herrell. and John King are prospering as Lincoln car dealers, and Hamilton Fairfax has been sent abroad as a Spanish correspondent of the Evening Star. The last two weeks I have seen so many of my old school friends. This is such a small old world after all! 43 THE COMPASS :: 1936THE SEEKER 'The spray is on my check. The wheel is in my hand.

Under the guidance of the two sponsors. Miss Hill and Mr. Hillman, the Council accomplished many things. The Student Body was fortunate in having such a capable President as Thomas Moncure. He saw to it that every meeting was carried on in a business-like manner. Much credit is due him in his splendid handling of the work of the Council. He divided the work equally among the members of the Council and. because of this, was given much cooperation. The Council this year had eighteen members selected from the four classes and the Clubs who had at least thirty-five members. The Senior Class was well represented. It had six members on the Council. The Juniors had five. Sophomores, five, and Freshmen, two. Vice-President of the Council this year was Courtland Davis, a Junior. The other officers of the year were Katherine Dunn. Treasurer, and Louis DeMoIl. Secretary. The first meeting of the year was held on T uesday. October 15. 1955. It was in this first meeting of the year that the minor officers were elected. The new Constitution of the school, which was drawn up several weeks before by a group of students representing each homeroom in the school, was read to the members of the Council. This new Constitution created new offices for the members of the Council. The following Committees have been functioning all during the past semester: Health and Sanitation. Auditorium. Cafeteria. Athletic. Lost and Found, and Traffic. The last two were perhaps the busiest. They were headed by Jane Shields and Robert Rumshin. Students through the Lost and Found Bureau recovered hundreds of articles, while the hall monitors on the Traffic Committee kept order in the halls at all times. We hope that the Student Council next year will have such hard-working members as Miss Shields and Mr. Rumshin. The Honor Committee and Discipline Committee handled twenty-eight cases. Of all the decisions rendered during the year perhaps the most important was the one dealing with dramatics. The question was: Should students who have failed one subject be permitted to participate in school plays? In meetings of the Council it was twice decided not to let the students who had failed take part. A Committee of teachers and Mr. Moncure appeared before the Council and gave their views on the subject. After many heated debates, the Council changed its decision and is now allowing students who have failed one subject to take part in school plays. The Council made some money for itself this year by holding a few auction sales: with the help of Harold Fagelson it cleared enough to buy a filing cabinet and still have some left over. A cake sale was held and proved successful also. With this money the Council was able to buy an extra page in the Annual. The Student Council members of 1956 would like to take this opportunity to thank the teachers and students for their cooperation. It is their hope that the Council of next year will go on to do bigger and better things for George Washington High School.

Ruby Bryant Miss Carmen Andujar President .Vice-President Secretary ■ Treasurer Adviser The Spanish Club, since its organization in 1927. has been one of the most popular clubs both in Alexandria and in George Washington High Schools. We are proud of the fact that it has an enrollment of eighty at the present time. The object of this club is not only to obtain a better knowledge of the subject, but to create more interest among the students for the study of the language. The club provides the opportunity of becoming better acquainted with the customs, legends, and traditions of Spain and of the Spanish people. It creates a broader feeling and a better understanding between the United States and Spanish speaking countries. Under the able leadership of Miss Andujar and its president. Joe Gay. the club has held regular meetings throughout the past term. It has been successful in all the activities it has undertaken and is the most prosperous club in our high school. One of the enterprises that the club is very proud to have sponsored this semester is the state-wide tournament in Spanish in which eleven of our club members were participants. The club not only gave the entrants its moral support. but helped to support it financially. This happy and enthusiastic group of club members does not wish to finish the year without having something to remember the club by. They have just voted upon a pin as a club emblem. The pin will be made in sterling silver with a purple and gold background representing the colors of the club. It will have the name ‘‘Cervantes.’’ the immortal Spanish writer of the 16th century, on the scroll. THE COMPASS :: 1936 62ACTIVITIES FRENCH CLUB Comment .illcz-vous. mes amis? Ou faut-il que jc parle anglais? Oui? Eh bicn! Voila! The French Club was organized to stimulate the interest of the students in the language and to further our knowledge of pronunciation and our ability to converse in French. Membership in the club is restricted to students with a fairly extensive knowledge of the language as the club itself does not delve into details. This year the membership was approximately thirty. The officers for this year are: JANE DUNN President ESTHER Cain .......................... ... ....Vice-President Rachel Shelton.................................. Secretaru Gw in Waits Treasurer Miss REARDON Sponsor The outstanding activity was a Valentine Party given by the club at which French games were played—even a French cross-word puzzle was filled out. The Club sponsored two trips to Washington to which all the French classes were invited—the first to see Dumas’ “The Three Musketeers" and the second to see "La Maternelle.” All the members were thrilled at seeing the Dumas Classic which the French III class was reading at the time. "La Maternelle" was a truly French film and gave the students an excellent idea of how a real Frenchman speaks his language, and a clear-cut picture of the life in the slums and poorer districts of France. The graduating members wish the "tarrying brothers" the best of luck throughout their French "career" and hope that the club will continue to flourish throughout the coming years. C’est tout, mes amis. Au re voir. 63 THE COMPASS :: 1936ACTIVITIES THE LIBRARY CLUB Virginia Nichols President Kaiiukim Dunn Vice-President JANE Purvis Secretary JEAN JEI FRIES Treasurer EVELYN DARNELL Student Government Representative The Library Club of the George Washington High School. The Book-hounds. is now in its third year of successful activity. This organization was effected in 19}4 in the former Alexandria High School. The purpose of the initial organization was to increase publicity, to enhance the contents of the library, and to give a regular staff of student assistants. This first year in the George Washington High School has been most successful. The official club session opened October 16. 19 5. Committees were organized and various chairmen appointed. A definite aim was projected to make the school library the focal center of interest and to develop new interest for books and discriminating judgment in selection. In November Mark I wain's centennial was observed as well as National Book Week. Attractive displays were made and programs sponsored to illustrate "reading for pleasure." In December a number of new books was added. In February the first adequate library survey was made. Much progress was evidenced. The library now shares in all privileges and duties of school as an assisting mechanism in education as well as an individual department. The library club is also rated on the same basis as other student organizations. Student assistants are on duty at all times in the library. Membership in the club is voluntary. Assistants are chosen by the librarian. Many plans for future activities are being made for the coming year. THE COMPASS :: 1936 64ACTIVITIES THE DANCE CLUB At the former George Mason High School there was in September 1935 a most wide-awake Freshman class. At a party given by the class on February 22. 1936. Miss Appich noticed how few of the boys danced. Upon being told that most of them did not know how to dance, she remarked. " What a shame there is not some sort of club to teach dancing. " The next morning an excited group came to her room and said. '"You can have it.” Noticing their teacher's surprise they enlightened her by explaining that they had told the principal that Miss Appich thought the Freshmen should have a dance club. He agreed and granted permission. The Club decided to meet every Friday from 3:30 to 4:30. At first there was a pianist to furnish the music. Later Jimmie Michelbach volunteered to furnish the music as a means of giving his new orchestra experience. In May the Dance Club held a successful dance in the Town Hall. Though enough money was raised to pay for a page in the Annual, to Miss Appich the real success of that dance lay in seeing those boys and girls who. four months before, could not dance, get out on the floor and have themselves a time. The Club was continued in the George Washington High School. The first semester was devoted to instructing those pupils who could not dance at all. During the second semester the Club sponsored a series of Friday afternoon dances which took care of a definite need in the social life of the school. The Club plans to continue its program next year. 65 THE COMPASS :: 1936ACTIVITIES SILVER DOLLAR HISTORY CLUB Henry gills Officers President G. K.

It was organized for the purpose of increasing the homeroom library of the history classes. At the first of the year the club sponsored a very successful dance. Later the play. "Simon Pure Simpleton." was held in the George Washington Auditorium and was considered a fine performance. It lived up to its reputation of being a side-splitting comedy.

THE COMPASS :: 1936 66ACTIVITIES THRIFT CLUB The Thrift Club first originated in the old Alexandria High School about ten years ago when the Educational Thrift Service first started their plan in this city. The membership consists of two cashiers from each room who each week take care of the banking business in the various rooms. This business is in the nature of recording all deposits made by the students in each home room: then after the proper entries have been made each Tuesday morning, one of the cashiers from each room delivers his room envelope to Mrs. Elgin in Room 06. Here the president of the club. Pearl Schulze, receives the envelopes, places them in the school bank bag. and then some student appointed by the adviser takes the bag to the bank. The empty bag with envelopes and other necessary material is sent for each Monday, and on Tuesday returned to the bank with money which the students in the school have deposited. The officers of the club are: Pearl Anne Schulze. President: Margaret Weil. Secretary-Treasurer. The purpose of the Thrift Club is for Service only. Mrs. Ruth Elgin has been the adviser of this organization since its origin and is always available to aid the cashiers in their work whenever assistance is necessary. 67 THE COMPASS :: 1936ACTIVITIES THE CONTESTANTS' CLUB The Contestants' Club is the child of the Woodrow Wilson Public Speaking Club of the Alexandria High School. When the Alexandria High School merged with the George Mason High School in 19 5. the club changed its name. The club charges no dues and is self supporting. Its purpose is to prepare pupils for the State Literary Contests which are held at Charlottesville each May. It also promotes interest in and sponsors contests in reading, debating, spelling, public speaking, short stories, poetry, and a one-act play. Any person in school is free to enter these contests, and the winners of these represent the school at Charlottesville. The club has enjoyed a very successful year under the able leadership of Robert Rutledge as president. The club wishes to thank its sponsor. Miss Mary Waller Dickinson, for her guidance: the dub s success is largely due to her efforts. The other officers are Vice-President. Katherine Dunn: Secretary. Robert Roberts: Parliamentarian. Thomas Moncure. The club had sufficient membership this year to warrant having a Student Council Representative. It looks forward to another successful year and invites everyone who has an interest in literary activities to join.ACTIVITIES GI IT Cl UB Officers Frances Peyton ................ Ernestine duffey jean Haynes Miss Prati .......... President .Vice-President Secretary- 7 reasurer Faculty Adviser The Glee Club is a vital part of our school. By it interest in music has been promoted throughout the school. This has been the aim of the Club. This year the organization has been especially fortunate in membership, having increased its number to thirty-five over last year's eighteen. The work of the Club has consisted in the study of various types of music, from which much benefit has been derived. I he program of the year is as follows: 1. Stunt Night (won first prize) 2. Assembly Programs 3. Dedicatory Exercises 4. May Day Exercises 5. P. T. A. Exercises 6.

Since then it has been one of the most active clubs in the school. Each month the enrollment has increased so that today we have one of the most successful clubs in George Washington High School. The chief motive of the club is the creating and promoting of school spirit in the student body. The many successful affairs held throughout the year have undoubtedly helped to do this. Stunt Night and the Annual Football Banquet were the "tops' in our entertainment program. One of the outstanding reasons for the success of the club is the cooperaiion of all the students in the school.COMMERCIAL CLUB President Marjorie- Hacker Vice - President Sponsor Secretary- Treasurer GnoRC.ii Miss Warf Annf Cali.ahan The Commercial Club has been organized to promote friendship, cooperation. willingness to serve others, and to increase the skill and knowledge of business principles. Membership is open to any student in George Washington High School taking a commercial subject. The business meetings are held the first and third Wednesdays of the month. The educational meetings are held the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month. The club has been divided into committees to facilitate the running of the club and to give as many students as possible an opportunity to take part in the management of the club. The following are the names of the different committees and their respective heads that have served for the year: Nancy Smith. .. Committee Virginia Rowlfs Virginia Nixon George Gems Louise Rose Educational Committee The outstanding undertaking of the club has been the dance which was given on May 29 in the gymnasium of the high school. The club appreciates the assistance rendered by the Alumni in making this endeavor an overwhelming success. The future of the club looks bright. With the hope of encouraging more students in the field of commercial work by offering interesting and educational guidance and attempting to benefit the school by bettering the commercial equipment. the Commercial Club is sure to be an everlasting success.SPELLING CLUB The Spelling Club of George Washington High School was organized in the fall of 1935 under the direction of Miss Reynolds. The outstanding activities of the year were its participation in the Stunt Night at school and the Spelling Bee on the radio. Marshall Gregory was chosen from the Spelling Club to represent our school in a contest at Fredericksburg on Wednesday. April 22. ART CLUB The Art Club was organized in 1934 with Mrs. Forshee as sponsor. It is now one of the most active clubs in the school. The officers are: President. Mary Jane Morrison: Vice-President. Judith Bradley: Secretary-Treasurer. Virginia Schelhorn. The sincere interest of the club members has been shown in many ways. The club has had as its main projects the study of famous paintings and their artists, sketching with charcoal from studies, and water-color work. This year the Freshmen have taken more interest than they usually have: this is very encouraging because it means the club will carry on for a long time. THE THEODORE H. FICKLIN LITERARY SOCIETY The T. H. F. L. S.. one of the oldest clubs in the high school, endeavors to promote among its members an interest in good books, both old and new. and to create broader literary horizons, so that education and culture may result. This, the club feels, will prepare the members for a fuller and better use of leisure. The programs this year have been devoted to English and American authors, among whom Kipling. Scott. Longfellow, and Poe have proved favorites. A pleasant memory of a non-literary meeting is the picnic Miss Kroes Ficklin. club sponsor and critic, gave in May at her little cottage. “Fidelia-on-the-Potomac.” Although the T. H. F. L. S. has been small this year, the members have been enthusiastic and willing. 'Quality, not quantity.” has been the slogan. However, as many new members as wish to join will be welcome next September.ACTIVITIES HUCKLEBERRY FINN'' Playing before a capacity audience, the George Washington High School presented its first dramatic production of the year on the night of December 19. The play, supervised and directed by Miss Hossley. was an astounding success and one that will not soon be forgotten by Alexandria pupils and residents who saw it. The feature male lead was played by Archie Norford. who held the part of "Huck" and played it exceedingly well, much to the amusement of the audience. Giving him wonderful support in the feminine lead was Esther Cain, who stole the show with her lovable and humorous personality. All the latest gossip about town could soon be learned from this busybody. Aunt Polly, played by Virginia Nixon, is also to be highly praised. Supporting this cast were Russell Craig as Tom Sawyer, Bobby Craddock as Mr. Finn, and Rachel Shelton as Ruth Watson.

The audience followed Willie Baxter’s romance as he fell in love at first sight with his Baby Talk Lady and watched his parents trying to save him from his destined experience. Directed by Miss Hossley and Mrs. Bloomer, this play added the second page to the book of dramatic successes presented by the George Washington High School. Stanley Keys as Willie Baxter and Betty Worsham as Lola Pratt deserve special mention for their acting, as do also Vivian Haislip and Tommy Ennis, as Willie’s mother and father. And we must not forget Jane. Willie’s little sister, played by Shirley Major. The supporting cast must also be given due mention in the remaining space.

The Cadets this year have been hampered by the lack of proper facilities. The drill field, not adequate in the best of weather, was so muddy during most of the school year that the Cadets were forced to drill in the gymnasium. Because of the slowness in equipping the Cadet Armory, the Cadets did not receive rifles until April. In spite of these obstacles we shall endeavor to put upon the competitive field a company which measures up to the standards established by the Cadet Corps of Alexandria and George Mason High Schools. The Cadets have shown remarkable spirit in bearing with these unfortunate circumstances. They reported day after day to drill in the gym even though most of the Corps were forced to sit upon the benches. A new record for enlistment was established this year. Of the eight companies. four of boys and four of girls, four companies are uniformed. As usual, the Cadet Corps participated in the annual Manassas and Winchester parades.The annual competitive drill with Washington and Lee High School was held on May 1 5 this year and was followed on May 20 by Federal inspection. On May 23 a four-squad platoon visited Randolph Macon Academy for a competitive drill. The financial enterprises of the Cadet Corps have been unusually successful this year. The Cadets backed a variety show, an amateur show, and two dances. From the proceeds we were able to pay our share in the Annual, help defray the cost of our trips, take care of incidentals, and finish the year with a comfortable sum in the bank. The Cadet banquet and dance, planned as an annual affair, will be held in early June. Many notables will be there, and the officers' commissions will be presented. The Cadets wish to express their appreciation to Lieutenant Liwski for his work as P. M. S. and T. and to Lieutenant Colonel Kirchner for his valued assistance. 81 RIFLE TEAM Coach Mitchell Burroughs Manager-Elect John Wallace Captain Frank Kast Captain-Elect Leonard Struder Robert Roberts Bernard Cook Royal Allen Hubert Dollins Stewart Brown John Birchfield Milford Cowling George Hensley Donald O’Neil Lawson Uptegrove Carlton McCauley CADETS THE CHEVRONS CLUB william Birrell .

FOOTBALL TEAM The George Washington High School Football Team, captained by Paul Shu. and under the coaching of Maurice Given, had. in the season of 1955, one of its best records in recent years. Out of approximately 75 candidates at the beginning of the season, the squad was cut to about 25 regulars, and real practice got under way. Heavy and regular practice kept the team in trim for the forthcoming season. The opening tilt was won. 26 to 0. at the expense of the National Training School. This victory started them off to a glorious and spectacular season. Out of eleven scheduled games they won ten and dropped one. giving them a percentage of .909 for the entire season. The Blue and Gold's only defeat was handed them by Massanutten. They dropped this ball game to the score of 25 to 0. This was the hardest game on their schedule. Captain Paul Shu held all individual scoring honors with a round figure of 97: Fones. the next nearest man. held a 45. Considering the opposing competitors and good material. Shu is to be highly recommended for his achievements gained in high school football. This is Shu's last year, since he graduates in June. The final game of the season, with Washington and Lee. truly justified the Presidents' ability to play grade A football. This final tilt, which we of course won. was the biggest event of the football season. The game drew a capacity crowd of 9.000—a crowd which witnessed the most spectacular, glamorous, and thrilling game that Alexandria fans have seen in recent years. With a score of 9 to 0 at the half, in favor of Washington and Lee, George Washington went out in the last half to put on a show that had the crowd on their feet until the last whistle blew to end the game. The game ended with a score of 1 2 to 9. Many a day will pass before Alexandria fans will forget this colorful game. One of our players. Paul Shu. was named on the All-State Team. Two other players. Lee Fones and "Dodo Robinson, were given honorable mention. We hope George Washington High School teams of the future will be inspired by this, the first team to wear G. W. letters, to carry on and produce many more teams of this type. THE COMPASS :: 1936 S4SPORTS First Row—K. Wood. B. Bum'll. J. Nugent. Captain T. Ennis. P. Shu. Coach Given. Second Row—Manager C.

BOYS' BASKETBALL TEAM Although the Presidents did not show up as well as was expected this year, their record is one for George Washington to be proud of. as all of their games were with the best of teams such as John Marshall. Gonzaga. and Tech. Therefore it was not expected that they return victorious from all of their tilts. After four weeks of hard and steady practice, the team was whipped into shape under the coaching of "Squire' Given. Clifton Davis was elected manager of this year's quint. George Washington opened its season by drawing first blood with a colorful victory over Washington and Lee. by virtue of a score of to 1 7. “Nappy” Nugent, captain of the team, set an early pace that kept the team on its feet until the final gun at the end of the season. Dropping only seven of the twenty-three scheduled tilts, the Blue and Gold literally “pressed with vigor onward, always arousing new life out of the dead ashes of defeat. The will to carry on in spite of defeat was quite obvious throughout the playing season. With the losing of the second John Marshall game, went out hopes and ambitions for the State Championship. However, the Presidents were not disheartened by this setback and continued with their old spirit and fight. New interest was aroused toward the latter part of the season by the addition of three former players. J. Lynch. K. Wood, and R. Burrell. These three had been ineligible up to this time. Although next year's team will not be entirely composed of veterans, we shall be hoping for a season just as victorious as that of 16. 85 THE COMPASS :: 1936SPORTS I irst Row—H. Smith. B. Carter. G.

GIRLS’ BASKETBALL Girls’ basketball practice started this year with much enthusiasm which the girls carried with them through the basketball season. Their team was under the direction of Miss Bowers. Libby Shaw was elected captain, and under her leadership the team closed a successful year, having won and lost six games, gaining an even break in the twelve games played. Among their victims were Lee Jackson. Falls Church. Occoquan. and Palace A. C. Lee Jackson and the Palace A. C. bowed to the girls twice, while the Falls Church dribblers in a latter game avenged the defeat. Two games were lost to the undefeated Fredericksburg sextet, while other defeats were suffered at the hands of Nokesville. Garfield A. C.. and Mt. Rainier.

L. l ones BASEBALL TEAM Because of the amount of inexperienced material, the Presidents may be hard pressed from time to time this year. Out of about thirty-five candidates seeking a berth on this year's nine. Coach Given lost no time in weeding out the “rookies'' and soon settled the team down to serious practice. Although the preseason practice tilts were not very encouraging, we shall be expecting good results from this year’s team. Our team is built around that versatile athlete. Paul Shu. Shu started the season behind the bat. This is his usual position, but because of inadequate hurling material. Shu was soon changed over to mound duties. A young recruit. Tony Denitto. who has shown up well in practice, will take Shu’s place receiving the deliveries from the hill. However, the biggest problem that confronted Coach Given this year was pitching ability. Pitchers were literally “as scarce as hens' teeth." The only veteran pitcher to return to the staff this year was “Moe" Armstrong, who won and lost for us last year. Incidentally, some promising “ivory" was found in A. L. Stewart and Dickie Burrell, who were planning to give us some much needed support throughout the season. As we shall lose a large number of the team by graduation, a new crop of recruits will be necessary to turn out a winning team next year. Frank Brewer, who graduated in February, was captain and the team was under the management of Tommy Ennis. Results so far are very promising and they are as follows: Team We They Petersburg 2 6 V T.

Captain I Fones TRACK TEAM Witli lack of experienced material from last year and with the help of only a few new candidates, the Blue and Gold cinder path beaters will be expected to turn in only a certain number of victories. Practice started late in March under the coaching of ' Bob' Garner. There were approximately twenty-five candidates: however, inclement weather conditions kept the track team for several weeks with only an occasional outdoor practice before their first tri-meet with Episcopal and Roosevelt. As most of the candidates have shown up comparatively well in practice, all showing good form and speed, we are building high hopes around this year’s track team. So far. we have only three scheduled track meets, but the card is still incomplete T he team this year was captained by Lee Fones. our dash man. and under the managership of Llewellyn Wood. Although we regret that we shall not be able to publish the results of the track team, as this will be printed before the season is over, we are certain that the track team will give its best and all for the sake of the Blue and Gold.
