Silence prevails over the emptiness—but magically, at the sound of a bell, silence gives way to the babble of eager young voices.Sunlight softly caresses chairs vacant at the close of day. and in orderly array stand the vari-col-ored volumes. A laboratory is a composite of rows of intriguing bottles, technical charts, baffling symbols on a board, shining chromium faucets!In quiet splendor for all to see, rest awards gained in literary and athletic contests. Under the watchful eye of George Washington, a familiar stairway is silhouetted against the afternoon sun.Gray - robed graduates receiving white diplomas . . . the last year in high school completed ... the Prom.

Drat chemistry anyway.” A pathetic situation, but we can’t see how anyone with such a sunny disposition could be blamed for anything. Keep it, Jane, and you'll not be blamed often. Blame it on Mr. Hillman — this girl wants to be a chemist. Lorrane has been a loyal and hard-working member of the Spanish Club and the Silver Dollar History Club. As for her classes, you can judge for yourself when you know th3t last year Lorrane was one of the few chosen to take part in the state-wide Spanish Tournament. Ann is the girl with the friendly smile whom we saw around school. And what did the friendly smiles do for us? They made us feel cheerful. What happens when we feel cheerful? We are cheerful to people. What is the net result? We have many friends. This is Ann, radiating happiness wherever she goes. Fannie hails from Charlottesville. Virginia. She was a member of the Commercial and the Silver Dollar History Clubs. You will find her hobbies are on the energetic side, skating and tennis. Fannie will enter the secretarial field after completing a course at Strayer’s Business College. c iA. Virginia has been connected in one way or other with the last three plays which the Dramatic Club has given; she directed one hit. “Pink and Patches.” Virginia’s main interest is good music. She has worked on this year's Compass as head of the activities section. Vivian’s hobby is sewing. She spends most of her spare time doing this, but she also enjoys going to the movies and attending football games. She has been a member of the Pep Club throughout her whole high school term. Steve’s favorite sport is baseball. He just dotes on it and sees all the games he possibly can. He is also an advocate of bowling as an excellent way to have fun. For his school activities he has taken part in both the Latin and Dance Clubs, being particularly active whenever picnics and entertainments were planned. Joe seems to have a way of getting himself elected as president of clubs. Under his direction the newly formed Social Club became very popular and- did much good work, and the Silver Dollar History Club continued to be successful. His quiet, charming manner as well as his executive ability will be missed at G. W. Joe’s efforts along the line of the drama were given excellent press notices. [ usL vd ■ Dick, on graduating from G. W.t plans to continue his education at the University of Virginia, where he will study law. Dick, who can always be recognized by his ready smile, has been a member of the Silver Dollar History Club, and was in the Cadet Corps in 1936, 1937 and 1938. Peter was one of the super-Beau Brum-mels of the school. When he wasn’t pursuing this art. he found time for a little baseball, basketball and golf. In fact, all his extra-curricular activities tie up with athletics. He won his letter for basketball and played on the school-sponsored golf team. His weekly column in the paper has been followed with much interest by sports fans.Johnny was one of the best tackles on the varsity football squad and we will miss his playing. We expect him to make a success of his chosen career, which is aviation. To gain knowledge in this field, he will go to Pensacola, Fla., where the Navy has a training field. One of Pierce’s many hobbies is photography. As editor-in-chief of the 1940 Compass, he has had a good excuse for carrying his camera at all times. He has represented G. W. H. S. in debates and public speaking in inter-scholastic contests for several years. Because of his definite contributions in many activities and wholehearted cooperation in all. Pierce is recognized as an outstanding figure in the class of 1940. Winant has taken quite an active part in school activities during his years at G. W. To prove this, you could find him as a hall monitor, working on the advertising staff of the Compass and helping Mr. Lindsey. He is a member of the Pep Club and Debate Club. In 1938 he was the winner of the prize awarded by the Tuberculosis Association for the best essay. He hopes to go to college and major in history, his favorite subject. “Lcgs" Herrcll. as he is sometimes referred to by his fellow students, received his name because of his speed on the football field. Gordy is an active member of the Monogram. the Pep. and the Silver Dollar History Clubs. After graduation he plans to study architecture. If it takes brains to become president, Edith will be the first woman in the office. Her talents run along every line from making her own clothes to being the best typist and writer of shorthand in Miss Crumley's classes. Mr. Lindsey also found her to be a very satisfactory assistant.Amy's favorite pastime is sewing, so naturally the sewing classes have been popular with her. She also likes outside activities such as movies and clubs. She has been a member of the Silver Dollar History Club for the past year and also attended the Pep rallies. Amy has not yet decided what she wants to do when she graduates. 3 Betty has belonged to the Latin. Pep and Debate Clubs, and was on the hockey team. She is going to Mary Washington College where she will major in mathematics. We must try to visualize our Betty as a ’ school-marm,’’ as that profession is her goal. Even Dante’s Beatrice was not more beloved than is our Beatrice. Have you ever seen a person who was radiant with friendly appeal Here's such a person. Her aspirations turn toward stenography, but it is our piivate opinion that there are fields which need blonde beauty more than this one. Gloria’s hobby is singing. One of these days she would like to turn this hobby into a career. After her graduation, however, she will attend a business school. Gloria has been a member of the Pep Club. Spanish Club, and Dance Club. w- Jimmy is a confirmed jitterbug. Is there a swing orchestra whose theme he can't recognize? Unlike the usual high school jitterbug. Jimmy is always impeccably dressed. He was one of the best instructors in the Dance Club. Watch the headlines in the next few years. Here is another Fred Astaire in the making!|“T Jerry ranks first among the students for his gay. witty nature. You could always find Jerry adding his humor to the Student Council and the Silver Dollar History Club. In athletics he made the varsity baseball squad of '39. Jerry's plans for the future Carlyle has worked for the Compass on the subscription staff this year. Besides this, he was vice-president of the Senior Class and a great follower of sports at school and at home.

Arthur, who is better known as Moe. is one of our graduating football players. Moe has been playing football for the last two years and can be considered a veteran. However. this is not the only sport in which he saw action. During the baseball season he could be found behind the plate where he performed like a professional.Here is another of our dependable secretaries, which is as it should be. since her favorite subject is shorthand. After leaving high school, she plans to go to Strayer's Business College, where she will continue her work.

W.'s new printing class has claimed Rand Norton, as printing became his main interest in school. He can regularly be seen during his spare time in the print shop. Rand will try to get a job as a railroad clerk after graduation. Ralph’s pet hobby is reporting. At all the games and other big events he was seen sporting a big camera, which made him look quite superior. However, he always saw to it that George Washington got the proper publicity, so what more could we ask? He has already begun his career as a newspaperman by working at the Alexandria Gazette office.This school-spirited senior has been active ever since he entered the halls of G. W. First he entered the Cadet Corps, where he rose to rank of corporal. Then his career as an athlete began. He has been on the varsity football, basketball, and baseball teams. He also found time to belong to the Pep, Glee, Monogram, and Dance Clubs. Elizabeth is a transfer student from Bowen High School, in Chicago. Illinois.

W.Margaret was a member of the Silver Dollar History Club, the Pep Club, and the Sewing Club. When she graduates, she hopes to get a job as a typist or a file clerk. Margaret will not be disappointed if she doesn’t, because she thinks the job of a homemaker would fit her just as well. Walter has been “it” in the Cadet Corps. Whenever there was work to be done, it was Captain-Adjutant Sanford who did it. He was also in charge of the cadet section for the boys in the Compass. The Saber and Silver Dollar History Clubs claimed him this year, and after school hours he was an ardent rooter for the teams. Helen Snyder—Air Hostess. She plans to have this title in the near future. After graduation she hopes to attend George Washington University for two years and then go into training at Garfield Hospital, as only registered nurses are eligible to be air hostesses. While in high school Helen participated in the Cadet Corps and belonged to the Commercial, Dramatic, Pep, and Glee Clubs. Ym tu. U “Alfalfa” is a tall, lanky lad who expects to attend V. M.

Canada, although he has received his education here. Gordon’s chief interest was in the various sports of the school, but he was also a member of the Silver Dollar History Club and the Pep Club. Gordon served in the Cadet Corps as well. His plans for the future are uncertain. Dorothy was another of our versatile cheer leaders. Besides being present and leading us in our yells, she also had so much school spirit that she engaged in many activities at G. W. Dorothy also sang with the Glee Club and gave her wholehearted cooperation to the club projects. CLa UJQJL-u. "A Dramatic attempts first put Claude before the student body.

A friend to all. Claude is generally well liked by his fellow students. e e6y z? c4i re. Blanche is known for her giggling. Like many another girl her age. she is proficient in the art. The favorite subject of this tall brunette was shorthand. Consequently she plans to enter Strayer’s Business College now that she has finished high school. Her hobby is candid photography, much to the sorrow of her entire family. Betty Jane is one of those people who are always smiling. Maybe this is the reason why we elected her secretary-treasurer of the Senior Class. Betty Jane also was a member of the Glee Club and of the Dance Club. Outside of school she often writes poetry on events of world-shaking importance—to her.Genius is the word for Barbara. 'Taint fair for one girl to be so smart.

Ruth had three years of service in the Cadet Corps, and was a company sergeant when she left, but now she spends extra energy on her hobbies, which are collecting school papers, pennants and souvenirs. Ruth plans to be a nurse, in preparation for which she will study at Georgetown University Hospital. Bill is one of the greatest “argufiers" in the business. This is brought out by the fact that he was always to be depended upon to carry on a discussion in class and enlarge upon a point in such a way as to lead the teacher into believing that he knew the answer. Well, perhaps he did—sometimes. Marion, who has been one of our quiet, resourceful girls, has confined her activity to membership on the Student Council. Her pastimes are tennis and dancing.

Nothing that the school has endorsed is too big for him to tackle. However. like most of us. he often got into mischief, but since he was so full of excuses that he never used the same one twice, he often got out again.

The properties for several of our successful plays have been the results of Helen's efforts. 3A Edith is another prospective secretary. She was the treasurer of the Photography Club. Photography is a hobby which she hopes to continue after her school career is completed. This is such an interesting hobby that Edith could hardly be questioned if she chose a camera instead of a shorthand notebook. In Mary Jane's four years in high school she has belonged to the Pep, the Dramatic, and the Homemaking Clubs. With a commercial diploma now assured, she hopes to become an efficient stenographer after graduation.

MILDRED ELLIOTT Sponsor.............Miss CARMEN ANDUJAR We find them on the field, We find them in the gym. We find them in the grandstands Cheering with vim. We find them in clubs. We find them in classes, Junior boys and Junior lassies. We find them in the halls, We find them on the stair, Wherever you look A Junior is there. So------ Here’s to the Third Year men! 1940 finds the Juniors, as ever, upholding G. W.'s great name. Your class surveyor has been on the job and reports that the Juniors are going places in our widespread school activities. On the athletic field and in the gym, we find Jack Crump, Morton Fischman, co-captain: Freddie Marsh. Lawrence Pal-lant. “Boony” Partlow, Douglas Spittle, co-captain: Benjamin West. William Wilson. who are all Juniors, playing the stellar roles on the cake team. The varsity football squad has Eddie Williams and Irving Mumford always fighting to the last. The girls are still holding their own on the varsity basketball team. June Wells, Anita Devers, Jane Baker, Dorothy Toms, and Mary Bledsoe are doing well under the capable leadership of their manager, Gloria Gardner.S u r v e lj. In the grandstands the Juniors are well represented, led by Anita Devers. Marie McDonald. Nancy Aitcheson. Nancy Lee Wheelehan, Jane Baker, and "Corky'' Gorham, "rootin' for the ol' home team!" The attempts of the Student Council to improve discipline and school government have been accomplished by the many efforts of its members, chiefly among whom were the Juniors: Audrey Peyton. William Barry and Doris Todd. Visiting our library, we see that many of our assistant librarians are Juniors, doing the various jobs which a librarian must do. Who knows if June Strother. Betty Moody. Eileen Riddick. Gloria Taylor. Betty Martin. Elizabeth Giuseppe, may not become future librarians. Glancing over the membership rolls of various clubs we notice that a great percentage of the members are Juniors. Harriet Hulfish was "ze great French cinema star" in "The Whole Town's T alking." playing her role unusually well. The personality, poise, and polish of our fine school is shown in the Junior class as well as the others. Living up to the three P's in the style show given for an assembly was Mary Agnes Dent, a lovely model. Betty Lee Ambrose is the nightingale of the Junior class. Pitt Hendrix, the gal with the Southern accent. Shirley Strickler. a swell dancer. Jo Cornell, that Theta Alpha Chi sister. Johnnie "Shy" Shelton, and Helen Dunn, the "brain truster" of the Junior Class. Receiving a blue ribbon in the wise-crack department is Llewellyn Kendrick for the best bright saying which was "When I grow up. I want to be like Superman." These are but a few of the many Juniors who are an asset and a credit to G. W. Now listen, all ye Juniors, and remember what Confucius say: "Juniors who have a good time this year have double good, grand and glorious Senior year.” Respectfully submitted.

DOUGLAS SCHOOLEY Secretary-Treasurer............DOROTHY RUSH Sponsor................Mrs. PAULINE GEE Dots and Dashes and lots of flashes! (Apologies to Winchell.) Flash! Jane Hulfish. captain of the newly formed interscholastic hockey team, reported several victories. Ah! watch Billy Bell on the football field fighting for his Alma Mater. Flash! Word has just been received that Eddie Mason has been awarded the M. I. Degree (Master of Intelligence). The Sophomore entries in the Latin tournament are Dot Roscnburger and Robert Athey. The voice of Douglas Schooley is heard in Student Council discussions ably supported by Dorothy Black and Robert Duval! Flash! If you wish to be a fashion plate, consult Andrew ■ Esquire” Drury and Karl “Model” Kendrick. To be “Voguish” see Bettie Lee Reynolds. Doris Jane Phillips, or Nancy Roberts. Flash! The success of the Sophomore dance, held on April 1 2. was twofold— both financial and social! Particular notice was taken of the “jitterbugging” of Willis Shu and Betty Jane Norris to the music of A1 Tushin's orchestra. Flash! Asa Groves is still living off the fame he so ably earned in "The Whole Town s Talking.” Blake Henry—speeding around the corner with a carload of girls in his maroon convertible. What about it. Blake? If you have that "down in dumps” feeling, see Billy “Sure Cure” Cowhig. Flash! Outstanding songsters of the Junior Girls’ Glee Club are Cecil Spaulding, Vivian Blake, Joanne Armstrong. Jane Keller, and Helen Bush. The mad-amoiselles entering the state-wide French tournament are Adrienne Barry and Elaine Weil. The air aces, better known as Everett Godfrey and Roland Harmon, certainly know how to keep the propellers whirrrrrrring!s coops Flash! If you arc in need of earthworms or butterflies, notify biologists Richard Marshall, Tom Phillips, and Buddy Thomas. "Are you looking for a booki " Then call for librarians Barbara Henderson and Jeanette Hillyer. Among Sophomore soldiers and soldierettes are Billy Deeton, James Deeton, Robert Duval, Cecil Spaulding. Arline Bibb. Patricia Butler, and Ruby De Vaughn. Flash! "Watch the birdie," says Clayton Bowman as he takes another picture for the Photography Club. Some of the outstanding additions to the Sophomore Class during the year 1939-40 are Harold "Buddy" Ruh. Connie Alley, and Jane Rives. Robert Graham was unable to finish his sophomore year with his class due to illness, and Bob Niemeyer moved to Arizona. Flash! Anyone wishing to get in touch with Charlie Barrett, go to the Supreme Court Building where he can be seen filling water glasses, paging justices or straigtening chairs. Among the Sophomore students who always know all the answers are Blake Henry. Robert Mc-Closky, and Althea Gillum. Flash! Who's that "little" boy in the checked vest and yellow scarf? You've guessed it. Stephen Gnash. Girls, he also has a car. Norbert Grauman and Billy Stewardson seem to have the right technique for getting ahead in helping the teachers! Flash! If you ever get that musical yen. go to Room 101 and listen to the band. Several Sophomores who lend their talent are Bobby Gralton, Lewis Jones, Fred McGiffen, Billy Moody, Leroy Peabody.

Scoop and Snoop Sophomore.man President....................RICHARD DUDLEY Vice President..........................VIVIAN BURKE Secretary - Treasurer ..BOBBY DOWNHAM Sponsor...............MlSS MARGARET COX As the spotlight plays over the Freshman Class, it picks out many talented members. The “Amateur Show" brought many stars to the front. Vivian Burke, vice president of the class, was singing star of that performance and also of the Minstrel Show, given later in the year. Jean May. Glee Club member, is quite an asset when harmony is desired, and Neil McDowell is really going places as an accordionist. June Kendrick, the popular tap and acrobatic dancer, will probably be our next drum majorette: Thelma Tregor may give her some competition, however. Freshmen not only jitterbug, but they also go in for the artistic style of dancing. Remember the ballet number performed by Lois Johnson and Evelyn Cox, at the Freshman Show? Cadets in the spotlight! Where is he? Oh. yes: there he is. with Lieut. Anderson! James Coates—orderly for the P. M. S. T., since he is a bit small for rifle carrying. John Crews seems to be following in the footsteps of his brother. Esca. “Tiny” Allen (don't let the nickname be misleading), Lee Allen, Albert Grenadier, and Jimmy Strother, the “serious" freshmen, are always on hand during the fourth period. Billy Glasgow, the big little soldier, is often marching along during the “seventh period” also. As the band goes by. we spot Anne Williams doing her bit at the drums: John Cogan. Carroll Pate, and Leonard Kolshak with clarinets: Norman Rossen with a big saxophone; Robert Cummins with a French horn; Joe Simmons with a trumpet: and Jimmy Taylor (yes, another one) beating it out on his drum. Spotlighting Freshmen in the sports world! Marty Foltz is plenty lucky, having made the Varsity football squad in his first year here. Giving aid to Mr. Doran is Robert Brown, the handy fellow. Among football fans, attending all of the games at "home” are Marvin Bailey and Wallace Smith. But the girls are not to be forgotten, for Elizabeth Turner and Dorothy Hansen have similar interests. Pleasing to the eye arc the freshman cheerleaders. Ann Jameson. Lorraine Gordon, and Jean Burch, cheering with all .their pep the new, as well as the old school yells. And now to spotlight the freshmen who didn't come from 'round these parts and who are glad they're here at G. W.! Beatrice Wishard. a lively little lady, came from San Diego. Calif., way out on the West Coast. Eugene Olmi, one of Student Council representatives, came from Philadelphia. William Barvis was born in Yonkers. N. Y. Leaving the United States for a moment, we travel to the West Indies, the birthplace of D’Jenane Boswell. In our midst we have Alice Voorhis. the daughter of Representative Voorhis. from California. Freshman hobbies in the spotlight! Possible future aviators are James Favill. who enjoys building airplane models. Kenneth Keziah. and Gerard Kerr, members of the Skyscrapers Club. Enjoying dancing are Dance Club members. Georgia Lee Allen, Marion Allan. Lorraine Gordon. Frances Beck. Albert Bryan, Lucille Berryman. Dorothy Grant. Lois Howard, and Lois Wells, and many more. Making sets for the school plays are Blair Culp. Irving Christian, and Lester Cornwall, members of the stage crew. We must admit that they are really good. The Spotlight Here and There! The ’ Brains'' of the Freshman Class are exhibited in the work of Betty Wright. Carlton Davis. Anna Beth Oertell, Allygn Frasca. Rosalie Nelson. Dorothy Mae Lee. Robert Murphy. Billy Martin, and Sam Eastman. The freshman cut-up. or class "jester" is Billy Sellers. Tommy Nichols runs a close second. Spotlighting freshmen co-eds. we find Carol Knight, usually seen with Jack Daniels. Betty Jean Good, Jean Burch. Sara Anne McMullen, Shirley Newbauer. There's—but say, who turned off our spotlight? Well, folks, no light, no freshmen, but remember, don't be too hard on them, because you. too. were once just "rats.” Freshman Reporter.Ever friendly and ready to lend a helping hand ... encouraging our plans and ambitions . . . patient with the problems of youth . . . setting an example in fairness, understanding, efficiency, and kindness for all to follow . . . guiding . . . coaching . . . shaping the lives of the future men and women of America!I Mr. Henry T.

Many outdated methods and laws have been discarded in order to make the student government system more effective. Improvements have been made in all three branches of the Student Government, namely: the Council, the Honor and Discipline Committee, and the monitorial system which are the legislative. judicial, and policing systems respectively. The school constitution has been completely revised to fit the needs of the present student body. One major change was the installation of semi-annual elections for this year in place of the single yearly elections. T his spring the new president of the student body was elected by a different system. In order to facilitate the elections, a nominating committee was installed. This student committee eliminated the aspirants down to the few strong ones, considering both their scholastic and discipline records, and from these the president was elected. A plan whereby the students will be informed of new laws shortly after their being passed was installed. This has been accomplished by reports being given every Monday morning activities period in which time the homeroom Student Council representative reports to his class. To inform the students further, the School Page carries a weekly article on all council business passed and discussed. The council gave an afternoon tea and dance for new freshmen to acquaint them with various members of the faculty and fellow students. Another outside activity was the sending of representatives to the state Student Council convention in Newport News in April. Monitors and council members were rewarded for services rendered with special reduction prices to athletic events for the first and an annual picnc in the late spring for the latter.PURPOSE: To aid students in acquiring the art of making and maintaining pleasant and effective human relationships.

V., Let’s goI" On cold nights with fingers frozen, and voices hoarse, the Pep Club members were always able to provide the necessary warmth to make football games just a little more colorful. Victory or defeat played important roles in their high school life, but whether victory or defeat, the Pep Club of G. W. always came through to chase away the disappointments felt by others. Cheering at football games, although important, was only a minor duty of the club this year. They organized and presented Stunt Night on November 10. 1939, to raise funds for the annual football banquet. At this time, each club in G. W. cooperated by giving a skit or stunt. The winning clubs this year were the Student Council with its stunt 'Discovery of America," first prize, and the Arts Club. "Handy and Mandy" stunt, second prize. T he football banquet was given on the night of December 15. 1939. The Pep Club was host at this occasion to several coaches from various schools, members of the school board, the faculty of G. W. and the entire football squad. After the banquet, a dance was given in the gymnasium which featured the popular school band. Jimmy Michelbach. This is an old tradition of the club which not only honors the football squad but provides fun for all the G. W. students. Not content with their other functions, the club this year introduced a new idea to the school, a Leap Year Dance given on February 9, 1940. This was a complete reverse of the usual "boy dates girl" because "girl dates boy." Not only did the feminine members of G. W. buy tickets, but refreshments as well, and they also supplied the transportation. Success was the outcome of the whole idea, and so again the Pep Club came through to provide G. W. with entertainment and fun. I he Cheer Leaders met the opening of basket ball season with much enthusiasm and spirit, in spite of the fact that the past weeks had been busy and full. Immediately, meetings were called and the members set to work on new cheers with which to boost the G. W. spirits high into the clouds. Although a considerable length of time had elapsed between the two sport seasons, the cheer leaders had by no means forgotten the word victory, and they lost no time in making the students fully aware that this would be the only outcome of any game. Again blue and white clad figures appearedJack Payne, captain 1939 football team, congratulates Howard Hicks, captain-elect. before the student body with singing voices and such optimistic looks and words that G. W. failed to associate with the word 'defeat ' The cheer leaders have become such an essential part of the G. W. sport life, that their absence from any game usually brings remorse, uneasiness. and discontentment. The Pep Club, however, did not stand idle when there were no games scheduled, for the cheer leaders were busy writing new cheers and planning pep rallies which were given in the auditorium and on the athletic field. The band always played at these rallies and talks were given as well as many cheers. The cheer leaders were determined that the spirit of all G. W. would not falter at any time and that each student would have embedded in his mind a loyalty to G. W. which could not be hindered by a defeat of any kind. Their purpose was well accomplished, and in view of their energetic work and contributions, it can well be said that without the Pep Club. G. W. would be a dull, colorless place in which to work.

Jbe C ontedtantd C fub The Contestants Club, a very important part of our high school life, originated in the old Alexandria High School. Under the sponsorship of Miss Mary Waller Dickinson, the club has been developed in George Washington High School. The dub has a two-fold purpose—to prepare students to participate in the State Contest at the University of Virginia in the Spring, and to create interest in the various phases of literary activity. During the past four years the Contestants Club has had a number of winners at the State Literary Contest. The participants have brought back plaques and trophies in short story, spelling, reading, and debate. The Club has six divisions, each sponsored by a member of the faculty.

Tillie Smith, '40DEBATE AND PUBLIC SPEAKING GROUP 2U„ « The debaters met on Friday mornings in Room 105. At the beginning of the year everyone was scheduled to debate at least once a month. The debaters tried to argue both sides of the national question, which was: ■ Resolved, The Federal Government Should Own and Operate the Railroads." At Christmas time, a most hilarious debate was held on the question: "Resolved. There AIN’T No Santa Claus." It was. of course, decided that there is definitely a Santa Claus. This club helps students to think logically and to express themselves clearly. Spelling CU At the beginning of the year, a spelling test was given to every pupil in school. Through the results of this test, the members of the Spelling Club were chosen. This club met every T uesday in Room 116. At first the club was divided into two teams—the Hornets and the Bees. These teams had matches and tests, and the winning side was entertained at a Christmas party. Elimination contests were held at the end of the year, until one person was finally chosen as the winner. The aim of this club is to find the best speller in school to represent us at the State Contest at the University of Virginia. The reading division of the Contestants Club met on Tuesday mornings in Room 106. The members of this club practiced oral reading at each meeting to help attain perfection for the State Contest. The aim of the club is to encourage full and keen appreciation of the literal and connotative meaning of the printed page: and orally to communicate that meaning to others with apparent spontaneity, directness, simplicity and genuineness, without distracting the hearer by faulty pronunciation and indistinct enunciation.SPELLING. READING AND ONE-ACT PLAY GROUP Short Story an J Poet, ry This division of the Contestants Club was an outcome of the efforts of the English classes on short story and poetry writing. The best stories and poems written by students during the year were turned over to a competent set of judges, and they selected the ones to be sent to the University of Virginia for the State Contest. On.-MPL, This phase of the Contestants Club was sponsored by the English Department. Plays were read and studied in class, and late in March a tournament was held to determine the winning play. The program this year consisted of the following: “The Rising of the Moon,” by Lady Gregory; “Murder! Murder! Murder!” by Babettc Hughes, and “Suppressed Desires," by George Cram Cook and Susan Glaspell. T he winner. “Suppressed Desires.” represented G. W. in the State Contests. The Public Speaking Club met on Tuesday during the Activity Period in Room 304. Speeches by members of the club were planned for each meeting. The topics for these speeches were chosen by the individuals, and they proved most interesting. To vary the program, extemporaneous speeches were sometimes given. Some of the most interesting topics during the year were “The Third Term Problem"; “How to be a Dictator in Ten Easy Lessons”; and. “Friendship.” This club teaches students how to express themselves correctly and attractively.PURPOSE: To encourage reading: to stimulate students in use of the library and its services: to encourage home libraries: and to instruct students to assist in daily library routine: to add to volume and content of the library through beneficiary activities of the organization.

S., the staff will feel amply rewarded for its efforts. The annual is published primarily for the students, and it is they whom the staff has tried to please. In an attempt to get ideas and inspiration for the book, six staff members attended the Southern Interscholastic Press Association Convention, held in November each year in Lexington, at Washington and Lee University. Miss Mary Thomas Rawls, faculty sponsor, Betty King. Elizabeth Porter. Bill Whitney. McRae Werth, and Pierce Ellis were the members who made the trip this year. Work on the COMPASS was not confined to this group, however, nor were the other members of the staff unproductive in the way of ideas and suggestions. Virginia Jon'S displayed her ability as literary editor, working particularly with the main division pages and faculty writings. Arthur Hall deserves much credit for his conscientiousness in doing much of the photographic work. William Whitney is probably the most versatile member of the staff. His statues adorn the division pages, his cartoons enliven the activities section, and his was the eye behind the camera for many of the pictures in this book. Bill worked under much difficulty, especially with fragile statues proving altogether too fragile. He is not without his reward, however, for some observing senior voted him the special honor of "most late" in the celebrity contest. The sports writing was in the capable hands of Beverly Bevans. Baxter Green, and Mary Lee Williams, although at times the first two mentioned seemed to have difficulty in finding sufficient adjectives to describe OUR teams! Anita Shapiro was Junior Class Editor, but she did not confine her activities to this department alone. Her diligence often put the rest of us to shame. The task of compiling the club section, plus much typing and other work too involved to mention, was done by Virginia Coates. She was also responsible for securing most of the senior signatures. Betty King. Cadet Major, had the job of putting the cadet section in order, and Elizabeth Porter served as Senior Class Editor.SUf Peggy Brumstetter. Beverly McClosky. Marilyn Allen and Nancy Payne, the typists. were confronted with the task of preparing the copy for the printer. In many cases their job was made harder by some writer's undiscipherable calligraphy. The staff is indebted to Ralph Park, Gazette Staff Photographer and February graduate, for the sports action shots. Miss T helma Maddox did an excellent job in arranging for the senior portraits and group pictures, and to fully appreciate her work it would be necessary to know all the diificulties of her job. Dorothy Ladue was her very able assistant. Billy DeSilva was a veritable jack-of-all-trades. His job was to do anything that did not fall under the head of one of the editors, such as numbering pictures, doing write-ups, etc. In addition to being an executive. Pierce Ellis, the editor-in-chief, found that his job necessitated his being photographer, writer, and contact man as well. The subscription department w a s headed by McRae Werth. whom Mr. Lindsey has significantly called a ’ brain-truster.'' Aside from the efficient manner in which he worked. Mac will be remembered for his humorous sign over the door of the annual office. Mr. Lindsey sponsored the business staff. Harold Berkow, whom Miss Dolly Callahan calls station B-E-R-K-O. was the advertising manager. The best testimonial of his work is the number of organizations subscribing to ads in this year's book. At the head of every annual staff there is a faculty sponsor who must be able to instruct and guide the activities of the many varied departments. Miss Mary Thomas Rawls proved her ability at this post by the way in which the many obstacles which confronts the staff were so readily overcome. Other faculty advisors were Miss Bertha Noble, Miss Audrey Sasher, Mrs. George M. Hutto and Mr. Harvey F. Cooper. Activities of the staff took such varied forms that it is impossible to describe each one: so many individuals contributed to this book that lack of space prevents mentioning each one. But it is the wish of the entire staff that every student at G. W. will find something in the book which will endear it to him. Left to right: Edith Hudson. Bill Whitney. Harriet Hulfish.

Washington and Lee being the direct cause, the Doran-coached Presidents hung up their helmets, leaving behind a record of two victories, two ties, and six defeats. Raising the season’s curtain, the gridmen. after three weeks of practice, got off to a flying start, forcing our old rivals. Fredericksburg. to bow 1 2-0. The next contest, however, found the Blue and Gold submitting, after a bitter struggle, to Western High School. D. C. champions. 19-7. The Presidents, in the conference opener with the powerful Newport News grid machine, offered surprisingly stiff resistance before being nosed out. 12-9. Against the highly touted Portsmouth eleven, the Doranmen pulled one of the surprises of the year in battling them to a scoreless deadlock. The team traveled to Norfolk for the next encounter. and came away on the wrong side of a 25-0 score, dealt by Maury High, who later captured the state class A championship. G. W. again pulled the unexpected in their clash with the strong Central High School team, holding them to a 7-7 tie. The only conference victory came at the expense of Lane High of Charlottesville, who was trounced 20-6. The gridders then took to the road for the next two engagements, playing at Lynchburg and Hopewell, where they were defeated 18-6 and 25-0 respectively. Neatly 10.000 fans packed the G.

Despite the fact that defeat knocked at their backdoor many times, the squad never admitted it and kept their fighting spirit throughout the entire season. An example of the team's refusal to become discouraged was shown by the fact that the last day of practice found the same sixty-five candidates fighting for regular berths as did the first day of practice in September. Although the boys did not show up as well as expected, Coach Doran was "very much satisfied" with the team and expects greater things next fall as seven lettermen are returning in September. Much has been said about the football team, but very little about those hardworking boys who compose the managerial corps. Few people realize what an important part they play in the organization of a football squad. So everyone should give a large vote of thanks to Manager "Bozo" Stine and his assistants. Jack Ticer. Robert Thomas. Leroy Herndon, Robert Brown, and James Lamm. Jimmy Taylor captured individual scoring honors with four touchdowns and six conversions for a grand total of thirty points. Ed Snyder being his nearest competitor with two touchdowns for twelve points. Ed Williams. Alfred Block, Irving Mumford, and Harvey Bourn each were credited with six points apiece, each having scored one touchdown. The team as a whole scored sixty-eight points to the opposition s one hundred thirty-three.

JUNIOR VARISTY COMPLETES SCHEDULE UNDEFEATED With a fast, pony backficld and a hard charging line accounting for much of the success. Coach Willis Benner's junior varsity football team completed its schedule with the impressive record of six victories, one tic. and no defeats. Coach Benner was highly pleased with his unbeaten team which went on to cop the Northern Virginia championship, and expressed the opinion that despite the boys' lack of weight there arc many good prospects for next year’s varsity eleven. Especially gratifying were the gridmen’s two triumps over Central and McKinley High schools of Washington The team had no captain for the season, but instead, elected one prior to each game While the team was not excessively heavy, the line averaging about 155 pounds and the backficld about 140 pounds it was well organized, whico was one of the most important factors in keeping its slate clean of defeat. v b SCHEDULE Opponent y Episcopal----------------------------------- 0 Fredericksburg----------------------------- $ Washington and Lee j } McKinley 7 Anacostia 3) Central 12 Lee-Jackson 20 Won 6 Lost 0 Tied 1 Scores Opponent 0 0 0 0 12 7 6 JUNIOR VARSITY SQUAD SECOND Row: Ludy Minmgh.

During the three seasons this team has been in existence, 18 games have been won. 2 lost and 2 tied. The only defeat this team suffered during the season was administered by a much heavier team from Central High School of Washington by the close score of 6-0. The highlight of the cake team's schedule was the jaunt to Charlottesville. This was the first long trip for the team and they made the most of it, turning in a fine performance in trouncin' the Lane High 135-poundcrs to the tune of 24-7. Among the boys who consistently performed brilliantly were co-captains Fishman and Spit-tie. West. Green, Phillips, Marsh, McDonald. Bell. Wilson and Herman. Every member of the squad, however, did his bit toward creating and maintaining the excellent spirit and high morale for which this group has been noted, and which has contributed greatly to continued success on the gridiron. Bernard Partlow, who was injured early in the season, was converted to manager and with the assistance of Edgar Wayland turned in a swell job. Opponent SCHEDULE Arlington Boys Club................

COURTMEN CAPTURE TRIPLE CROWNS Ed Snyder Captain After an unimpressive early season start, the G. W. cagcrs began to hit the hoop consistently and wound up the season with the Central District. Northern Virginia, and Big Three titles all under their belts. In winning the first Class A championship in any sport in the history of the school and capturing 16 of the 23 scheduled contests, the courtmen provided the fans with plenty of thrills, chills, and excitement before the season was over. In the curtain opener, the Alumni proved no match for the varsity, bowing 24-15, as did Glen Allen two days later, 37-19. Eastern, however, brought the two-game winning streak to a halt as they subdued the Presidents. 26-15. Journeying to Richmond for the annual invitational tournament, the locals drew Benedictine. one of the strongest prep teams in the state, and upset the dope by winning, 22-16. In the next two encounters, the quintet came away on the short end of the scores, dropping an overtime decision to Eastern. 32-30, and the initial Central District start to John Marshall. 39-30. The Blue and Gold then started what proved to be a nine-game conference streak by trouncing Thomas Jefferson. 32-25. Western then captured an extra period contest, 22-21. Bouncing right back, the Presidents took a pair of Northern Virginia games from Fredericksburg and Fairfax. 40-21 and 34-24, respectively. Meeting the University of Maryland Frosh at College Park, the courtmen met defeat at the hands of the Baby Terps, 28-22. VARSITY SQUAD FRONT Row, lift to right: Amos Clift. Ed Williams. Capt.

University Frosh and Gonzaga dealt the Blue and Gold two consecutive defeats, 39-29 and 32-30. These were the last setbacks of the regular season, however. as the Presidents copped the next eight games in a row. Petersburg and Thomas Jefferson, both conference tilts, were conquered. 36-20 and 32-14. The boys then had a field day at the expense of Fairfax, ringing up 45 markers to the opposition s 30. District win number six was chalked up at the expense of Petersburg. 44-20 being the final count. The following night in the battle for number one position on the conference ladder with Hopewell, the locals again came through as they took a 24-21 thriller. The quintet next scored an easy win over Fredcrickburg. 36-20. Meeting W. L. on the home court in a packed gymnasium, the Presidents handed the Little Generals a 41-15 shellacking. The following evening, the cagers captured the first Central District title in the history of the school by again taking the Arlingtonians over the coals. 27-20. Arrangements were made to meet Newport News. Eastern District Champions, on the home floor. With the fans all but hanging from the rafters, the Presidents, in one of the most thrilling clashes ever seen on the local front, nosed out the Shipbuilders. 30-29. Interest now at a fever pitch, the game with Lynchburg. Western District titleists, was again to be played on the local court. Using an effective man-for-man defense against the Glassmen. the Blue and Gold ran up an early period lead, which was speedily cut down, however, as the game progressed. With but minutes left to play and behind seven points, the Presidents staged a spectacular rally to pull abreast and seemingly overcome the handicap. As the final gun went off. the scoreboard read 34-33 in G. W.’s favor. The fans nearly went crazy, only to learn a few minutes later the last field goal had been nullified and Lynchburg won the ball game. 33-32. G. W. had dropped a heartbreaking decision to Lynchburg. Despite the fact that the team did not win the State championship. it deserves a vote of thanks for winning the first Central District title in the school’s history. Despite the loss of Captain Ed Snyder. Nick Latsios. Alvin Anderson, Johnny Murnane and Jack Kraemer by graduation, with Leon Chisholm. Johnny Shelton and Captain-elect Amos Clift returning next year. Coach Doran hopes to build as fine a squad as the 1939-40 one. SCHEDULE Opponent G. W.

The "Little Presidents" won seven and lost six during the past season which gave them a winning average of .533. Opening the season against Tech High of Washington, the boys in blue and gold dropped a heartbreaker by one point margin, but as if to compensate for this bad break, four wins followed, one of which was over Tech in a return game. This streak was brought to an abrupt climax, however, when the Jayvees met defeat at the hands of a strong Anacostia quintet. The remainder of the "Little Presidents" schedule consisted of return games with Bethesda, Western and Anacostia, and two games with their arch-rivals, W. L. A flashy passing attack and snappy floor work was featured by the Jayvees throughout the season while an effective man-to-man defense was used to bottle up the opposition. The squad was made up mostly of new men. Chuck Thoman being the only player remaining from last year's team, but this seemed to hamper the boys little, and the new players turned in fine performances throughout the season. Outstanding for the "Little Presidents" in their campaign were Lonnie Phillips, James Suit. Jack Crump, and Chuck Thoman. Mr. Benner has varsity hopes for some of his boys next year, and we wish them the best of luck. SCHEDULE Scores Opponent G. W.

Amos Clift and Captain Johnny Murnanc returning from last year's baseball wars. Coach Doran had quite a problem facing him in trying to build a successful baseball machine from the thirty-five candidates who answered the initial call. Some promising material has been uncovered, however, and at this writing the team seems to be developing into a smooth working organization. The Presidents gave evidence of this promise in the season opener against Falmouth High School, rapping out an 11-3 victory over the visitors. Jimmy Higgins, pitching his first varsity game, and Johnny Murnane allowed but two hits each, while the locals collected ten off the servings of the Indian slabsman. In the only other contest played to date the diamonders dropped a 6-3 verdict to the powerful Georgetown Freshmen, being limited to two bingles by a pair of Hoya twirlers. Murnane allowed but four blows, one of these, however, being a circuit clout in the seventh inning. Although the abolishment of the state baseball league came as a distinct surprise and left many vacancies on the Presidents’ card. Coach Doran has managed to arrange a complete schedule for the varsity tossers in addition to an intramural league of six teams. These intramural teams are expected to furnish varsity material for next year. SCHEDULE April 5—Falmouth. 3........... G W. H. April II—Georgetown Frosh. 6....G. W. H.

W. track team has two meets under its belt as this goes to press. The Presidents' cindermcn, after a few weeks of preliminary training which was hindered by inclement weather, competed in the Central Division Championships at Richmond on April 6. Against strong opposition they scored 19 points to take fourth place in the team totals, behind Thomas Jefferson, Washington and Lee. and John Marshall, and 3head of Hopewell and Petersburg. This was an improvement over last year's showing and proved that the Presidents are to be reckoned with on the cinder paths this season. On Monday. April 15. G. W. was host to powerful McKinley Tech of Washington, who scored a 78-48 victory over the local tracksters. Despite a drizzle which continued all afternoon, and track which was little better than a quagmire, the competition was keen and the performances uniformly good. This was the first home appearance for the G. W. squad, which showed strength in the sprints, mile, half-mile, relay, low hurdles and weights. In the pole vault and broad jump the Presidents are represented by strong entries, but lack high hurdlers and high jumpers of ability. Coach Willis Benner is again guiding the destinies of the Presidents on the cinder paths and has produced a well-rounded squad. SCHEDULE Harvey Bourn Captain April 6—Centra!

SPORT Only one defeat was chalked against the Hockey Team this year despite the fact that this was the first team organized in George Washington which met outside schools in contest. Rated as the underdogs against the more experienced teams, the girls of G. W. quickly established the fact that they had a significant meaning in the field of hockey. There are eleven players to a team, but the team is eligible to have as many substitutes as it can support. This year's team at G. W. had twenty-four players which proved that the girls were very much interested in having a regular hockey team. Although the number of games played was small, G. W. showed a considerable knowledge of just how hockey should be played, and proved that hockey in this school is destined to establish a high ranking in its respective field. The team was led to success by Captain Jane Hulfish, who. along with sister Harriet and Anita Deavers. turned in some outstanding playing. Miss Lucy Houston and Miss Vivian Woodard, who coached the team this year, are now making plans for a regular hockey team at George Washington. Jane Hulfish Captain SCHEDULE Date Opponent G. W.

Coached under the loyal guidance of Miss Irma DeVault and managed by the capable, reliable Gloria Gardner, the team not only showed that it knew a thing or two about basketball, but revealed a number of outstanding players who were recognized by coaches of various schools as being exceptionally good. Rated as one of the best girl basketball guards and recognized many times for outstanding playing on the woodways was Anita Devers who was elected to captain next year's squad. Also among the outstanding players, though less experienced, was Priscilla Knight, one of the season s high scorers.

He was in command of the first battalion. 2 ecjinien Major Betty King was in command of the girls’ battalion. In her sophomore year, she was promoted from corporal to sergeant to platoon sergeant, and the next year to First Lieutenant. She also was promoted from First Lieutenant to Major in one year.

Anderson, has made marked progress this year, and the membership has grown to sixty players. The student leaders for the year 1939-40 were: Drum Majorette........................................................ FRANCES HARLOWE Captain............................................................ Peter McConnell First Lieutenant..................................................... LLEWELLYN MlNNIGH All of these will have to be replaced for next year, however, as these veterans leave in the June class. Activities of the band have been many and varied during the school session. All during football season the band did its share to pep up the team at rallies and games. Parades and trips kept the band busy during the fall term. Two cups were won by the group. On November 1 1 the town came to the support of the band with its response to the "Tag Day." As a result the school was able to purchase bright new uniforms and has now one of the best equipped bands in the state. For the first time a G. W. Band entered the state musical festival in Richmond. The other events of note for the band beside the usual local activities were the Horse Show at Upperville and Apple Blossom Festival at Winchester. MEMBERS Atcilus. Alfred Bowden. Stephen .. Bruffy.

Throughout the year, the corps participated in several parades in this vicinity, namely Armistice Day. George Washington s Birthday. and Army Day parades. Every year it makes a trip to Winchester to participate in the Apple Blossom Festival Parade. This year Lt. Anderson secured tickets for ten commissioned and noncommissioned officers to attend the horse show at Fort Myer. Next year he hopes to obtain even more tickets for this exciting event. Another "first" for the corps this year was the trip to Richmond. Five commissioned officers from the first battalion received an invitation from John Marshall High School to view its cadet corps. T hese boys took a day from school and examined the corps to get new ideas and information. The trip was most enjoyable, and much benefit was derived from it.

It is agreed that the true purpose of our corps is to make good, clean, honest future citizens of the members. By the time a person has had four years service, three as a subordinate and one as a superior officer, he has learned the rudiments of cooperation and the practical use of authority and discipline. These will be most beneficial in the years after school. In the corps a person is required to be neat, orderly, to obey orders and to conduct himself in such a way as becomes a gentleman. The War Department requires that at least three hours of drill be observed each week. Contrary to many beliefs, this training is most interesting to girls. Every girl loves to march in parades: there is something exhilarating about marching down an avenue when flags are waving. bands playing and crowds cheering.

The girls' battalion spent more days inside than did the boys. The corps wanted something to do during this period that would be both interesting and beneficial to the girls. Lieutenant Anderson negotiated with the Red Cross to see about getting instructions in this course. The Red Cross sent Mr. Barbour from the Rescue Squad of this city to give instructions to the girls. Mr. Barbour was very generous in giving them time, five days every other week. The girls found this course very interesting. When it was completed, each girl was entitled to a Junior Red Cross certificate. Much benefit can be derived from a course of this type. Among the topics discussed were artificial respiration, bandaging, bleeding, and treatments for shock, broken bones, fainting and minor injuries.

These boys entered the corps in the second semester and since that time they have shown great improvement. None of them had had any previous military training, but they were ready and willing to learn. The girl recruits were under the supervision of Gwendolyn Nolan. She is to be commended for her good work in teaching them the rudiments of military training. After two weeks of this instruction, they were added to the rest of the corps. Under the military system of training, much care, thought, and time are spent upon mental as well as physical development, in order that the cadets of our corps may possess a recognition of proper authority, and the willingness to accept responsibility.

It is composed of the commissioned officers of the First Battalion. All matters concerning dances, parades, inspections, and discipline are brought up and thoroughly discussed at the meetings. The club also forms a board to decide the handling of delinquent cases. Through the efforts of this club, the course of training the cadets was made more interesting, and the officers took a greater personal interest in the subordinate member.

M. S. T. It has for its main purpose the training of non-commissioned officers and the study of problems which arise among them. Also at these meetings, which are held every Friday morning, the conduct of the privates, the problem of teaching the manual of arms, and improvements in drill are discussed. From this group of officers will come the commissioned officers for 1940-41. They will have great responsibilities, and quite a bit of time is spent in preparing for this distinction. MEMBERS Rcgt.

KYLE BARNHILL The Lieutenant Liwiski Club is composed of all the commissioned and non-commissioned officers of the Girl Cadet Corps. Whenever any social or business functions are brought up. the Lieutenant Liwiski Club is naturally consulted, as it is the controlling force. Disciplinary matters. changes in orders, promotions, dances, and parades are discussed by the members at the weekly meetings. The Lieutenant Liwiski Club has been a part of the corps for many years and promotes a better understanding between the commissioned and non-commissioned officers. It also gives each officer the opportunity to express her opinion, make complaints, and offer suggestions for the advancement of the second battalion.

Robert Field Range Officer RONALD SlSK The rifle team is a division of the Cadet Corps. In order to become a member a cadet must shoot a qualified score: after he has shown his ability as a marksman, he automatically is considered a member. The rifle team was organized when the cadets were started. This team at the present time is under the command of Lt. Anderson. The members were very fortunate in having Lt. Marvin Zimmerman for their instructor on the range. The rifle team practiced every day after school in order to compete in matches with other schools. It made a fine showing in many of these. This traveling from school to school to participate in competitive matches forms the most interesting activity of the team.
