We who knew him loved him, for he was mannerly, friendly, and helpful in every way. His excellent character, which was beyond reproach, was deserving of emulation. The word of his passing came as a great shock to all of us, and although he is not with us, his spirit will follow us beyond our Commencement. That we may never forget one who justly earned the affection of all his classmates We, the Senior Class of George Washington High School, dedicate the 1949 Compass' to GRAFTON SHREVE. Foreword In this year, 1949, the bicentennial anni- versary of the founding of the city of Alex- andria is being celebrated. We think it entirely fitting, therefore, that our yearbook be set in an atmosphere repre- sentative of life in the Alexandria of 1749. 071 EWU FACULTY SENIORS U NDERQLASSMEN CLUBS SPECIAL DEPARTMENTS SPORTS CADEVS ADVERTISEMENTS T 8 Fam by Mr. Edgar G.

Mr. Lindsey is well known throughout the high school for his ability in mathematics and many other subjects, but his unfailing and earnest endeavors contributed for the benefit of the Senior Class may not be so wcll known. However, his task is somewhat lightened by the able assistance of such fine and capable students as Milton and Bill. Their combined efforts have brought a year of commendable achievements to a class of students who can look back with pride on their excellent and out- standing guides to greater so J V 64 funior Clan' 1 JUNIOR OFFICERS President ......,.,.,...

THE IUNIOR CLA ss The class of 1950 has had an outstanding year under the inspiring and vigorous sponsorship of Miss Thelma Pruden. Each Junior home room elected a student to represent that room at the junior Board Meeting held every second and fourth Tues- day of each month. There were seventeen such representatives who met with the officers and transacted any business which was presented before the board. This group, early in the year, voted on the following budget: S100 for the Compass, S50 toward a gift to the school, and 35175 for the Junior-Senior Prom. In order to raise this amount, many activities were promoted: such as, the Membership Drive from October 27 to November 10, the Christmas Record Hop on December 3, and the Junior Class Pin Drive in January. The big event of the year was the junior- Senior Prom on April 22. The class of 1950 will remember the many happy times they have had during the year as they turn the pages of this Compass. p 66 S OPHOMORE OFFICERS Preridem ......

THE FRESHMAN CLAS In the Freshman Class there are approximately ninety-one students, boys and girls of many different personalities. Our class, ably sponsored by Miss Mary Fogel, has taken part in numerous school activities, such as assemblies and plays. The students have come from all parts of the United States, and they have made up a cooperative, conscientious, and interesting Freshman Class. Of course, we are not perfectg so let us hope that the next class will ' improve upon the mistakes which we have made. 70 EIGHTH GRADE OFFICERS Preiidem .....,,.............,.....,..

They are: Creative Writing Club, Debating Club, and the Dancing Club. Much of our success was due to the help of our sponsor, Miss Elizabeth Thrift. 71 Freflomvm Clam 5 F ff f M ff mwmmwwh Awww f N V, ,. ,WH W , Y ,WM Nh,h KM, A K 7, , V 5 v Qn V h' , W IE E " f f , Q , M , ff ,, 1- L 'Q' , 'H N f M t N ,.

STUDE T COUNCIL The school year 1948-49 found the George Washington High School Student Council busily engaged in a series of activities designed to promote self-government among G. W.'s 1,800 students Linde? the guidance of Mr. Williain Hillman. One of the chief tasks undertaken by the Council, its officers, sponsors, and members was development of school spirit at G. W. The importance and value of an energetic Student Council were stressed through unified attendance at athletic events, an assembly program depicting good citizenship, the adoption of a European war orphan, a football season Victory Hop, and the establishment of the first Honor Study Halls at G. W. ' The important executive jobs of the council, those of presiding over the Legisla- ture and the Honor and Discipline Committee, were ably handled by Mark Berliant and Jim Hawes, the first and second Vice-Presidents, respectively. Other important council activities were the chartering of buses to the Metropolitan Basketball Tourney and the job of acting as hosts for the Northern Virginia Meeting of the Student Cooperative Association.

The Quill and Palm is the name of the chapter of the National Honor Society for secondary schools at George Washington High School. Quill and Palm was the name of the independent local organization before it became a chapter of the National Honor Society. Membership in the Quill and Palm is limited to twenty-five members. With the help of the faculty, the members compile a list of high juniors and low seniors having a scholastic average of eighty-eight or more. From this list, new members are selected by secret ballot on the basis of citizenship, character, and participation in extra cur- ricular activities. New members are initiated semi-annually. Under the sponsorship of Miss Dolly Callahan, the projects of the Quill and Palm include raising money for a scholarship, and promoting the March of Dimes, and Cancer Drives. The emblem, the keystone and flaming torch, stand for high ideals and truth. The letters C. S. L. S. on the emblem represent the four basic virtues of the members: Citizenship, Scholarship, Leadership, and Service. Preridem ....,......... ., , .... ....,.,.. ........

This year the curtain came down on the Players' most successful season. The fall play, "We Shook The Family Tree", enjoyed such success that the spring play was given twice, thus breaking all previous records. Also for the first time the spring show, because of popular demand, was changed from the three one-act plays given under the title of "Play Night" to one three-act play. The one-act play contest was not slighted however, as the players presented very successfully the drama "Smoke- screen" in the State One-Act Play Contest in Charlottesville. The players can be truly proud of a very successful season. 'Say the house sits here-" 'Make mine arsenic." I put one in every mail-box." Come on let's go before something else happens!

The Library Club is composed of the students who work in the Library during the six periods of the school day. This year's membership totals thirty-two students and is under the sponsorship of Mrs. Marilyn Miller, Assistant Librarian. The first regular meeting of the club was held in October 1948, at which time ofncers were elected. The program for the year included a speaker from the Department of Rare Books and Manuscripts of the Library of Congress, a field trip to the Library of Congress, a Christmas party, several movies concerning library work, and a final picnic in the spring. All those students who work in the library agree on one thing-that it is both an enjoyable and prohtable experience.

RETAIL TRAINING CLASS Cfllphabetical lirtingj: Gilbert Bay, Vera Breeden, Stuart Brooks, Grace Byers, Philip Fagelson, Jerry Harris, Marian Johnson, Lewis Kirkpatrick, Pete Pistolesi, Jane Poss, Donald Powell, Martha Sanford, Mary Jane Starkey, Carey Taylor, Bob Warwick. is a work-training program. The Distributive Education Department is made up of two sections. The first group is made up of sophomores, juniors, and seniors, and is a course in practical economics which helps all consumers. Each member is taught to be a better consumer and get more for his money when he makes a purchase. It gives him a general knowledge of other things which he deals with when he goes out into the world-social security, insurance, budgeting, transportation, housing, etc. The second group is the co-op class which is made up of those seniors who are interested in retailing as a profession. The classroom instruction which is provided in all phases of the work is followed by at least fifteen hours of practical experience in the store each week. Not only does the student receive this valu- able training, but he also receives the same rate of pay as part time employees who are regularly employed plus an extra credit in school. Consumer education may be started either semester and carries one unit of credit. Retail training is started in September and is taken the entire year. This gives the students two credits upon completion of the year. Other phases of this department are the Retail Institute classes which are held for regular employees in the local store. These classes are held on store time and are given at a central location downtown. Each unit is given in a ten hour course and the students in these classes receive a seal on the Certificate of Credit for each class completed. Part time employees for holiday rush periods are also trained in a ten hour pre-employment class at school and in various stores where this type of help is used. Many of the local high school students were trained this year and placed in positions for these periods. The retail training students have charge of operating the school supply store which sells supplies to students. This store is set up in the class room. Displays made up of merchandise borrowed from local stores are used to practice this phase of the work and also make the display equipment appear more attrac- tive. ' Classes are also made possible for veterans who are on-the-job training-employees. They receive a seal on a Certificate of Credit for these courses upon completing them. This year one new phase was added. The department sponsored classes given to restaurant personnel in various eating establishments in Alexandria.

ART CLASSES, under the direction of Miss Elizabeth Eisenberg, are among the most interesting offerings at G. W. Most of the students attending these classes like to experiment with crayon and paint pot for the sheer enjoyment they derive from it, employing such media as pastels, poster-paint, charcoal, oil, and watercolor. Importance is placed on helping each indi- vidual with his special problem or encouraging a particular talent. Art craft and commercial art are offered in addition to regular drawing and painting classes. Papier mache work, block printing, and sculpturing are included in art craft, while the commer- cial class deals with advertising and poster designs. These emkryo artists contribute to the success of school functions through publicity for plays, dances, and sports events. l . .......

BOOKKEEPING is the backbone of the business course offered in our high schools today. lt affords greater opportunities, especially to boys, than any other subject in the department. It can be used as a stepping stone to public accounting or to business management. It gives a pano- ramic view of a business. ln first year bookkeeping the student learns the meaning of assets, liabilities, proprietorship, balance sheets and net profit. He also learns how to record transactions, how to post to the proper accounts in the ledger, how to take a trial balance and how to make the necessary statements at the close of the Hscal period. ln addition, he learns how to close the books and have them ready for the new hscal period that follows. 1 3 1 102 Sporty , 4 IS ,A 104 i i 5 105 VARSITY FOOTBALL.

FOOTBALL MOUNT VERNON With most of last year's powerful team back, the George Washington High Presidents un- veiled themselves as a team to watch by downing a strong Mt. Vernon eleven, 27-6. Teddy Potts, Bob Via and Buzzy Harris led the Presidents attack with Potts passing two and scoring one of G. W.'s four rallies. Rookie Nelson Wood added three extra points. LANE Against an underdog Lane High team running from a speedy "T" formation the Prexies were checked in a thrilling contest that ended in a 13-13 tie. Bobby Via scored both the Presidents touchdowns while our feared passing attack failed to click. MORRISON The locals exhibiting a vastly improved defensive as well as offensive team swamped a baffled but game Morrison High team, 39-6. Ed johnson and George Nolan shone for the Presidents as they outsped the heavy Morrison forward wall. THOMAS JEFFERSON In the next encounter Coach Mackey's charges decidedly outplaying a powerful Thomas jef- ferson squad couldn't quite outscore them and ended up on the short end of a 21-14 score. Threat- ening as the final gun went ofi' to score a major upset, the two-touchdown-underdog G. W. team threw a good scare into their cocky rivals. NORVEIW Ted Potts, G. W.'s triple threat back passed three and scored one of the Presidents five touchdowns as the next downed a fast Norview team, 32-7. Smooth running by Bobby Via and Eddy johnson also highlighted the local's attack. FAIRFAX The Prexies, trying to redeem themselves for the T. J. loss, mercilessly crushed a helplessly outclassed Fairfax team, 65-0. The first team remained in long enough to score nineteen points, the second and third teams piling up the rest. 106 - GONZAGA Gonzaga's Purple Eagles were next to feel the power and speed of the Presidents as they fell, 20-12. Long runs by Via and Johnson and perfect passing by Potts enabled G. W. to down the strong Eagle team. WOODROW WILSON George Washington then rolled over a hard-Fighting but weak Woodrow Wilson team, 39-0, chalking up their third straight victory. Again the sec- ond and third teams were given the opportunity to shine, and shine they did scoring nineteen points. Fine run- ning by Harries, Nolan, and Cooksey paved the way for the Presidents. Coaches FITZGIBBON and MACKEY JOHN MARSHALL A highly favored John Marshall squad was next to be crushed by a slightly terrific G. W. team, 38-15, as the underdog Prexies outpassed and outclassed their over-confident rivals from Richmond. Great line play by Dixon, Sweeny, Packard and Hanback highlighted the game. WASHINGTON AND LEE With their eyes on the "ole oaken bucket," the Presidents met Washington and Lee High of Arlington in the annual "Turkey Day" clash on a sea of mud. Flashy reverses, in spite of the mud, by the smooth G. W. backfield and steady line play enabled the Presidents to win the game 16-0 and the "bucket". Thus G. W. finished the 1948 season with one of their most impressive rec- ords, eight wins, one tie, and one loss. The local lads also won undisputed second place in the Virginia State Championship.

BASKETBALL Winning twenty-five straight games before losing to Glass High of Lynchburg in the State Tournament final, Coach Al Doran's basketball squad combined the greatest cage record of any team in G. W.'s his- tory. At the start of the season Coach Doran had the two pivot spots filled easily by Tony Daukas and Billy Smith. Socn Donnie Hanback and "Smiley" Moore shaped into first rate guards or floormen. jim Ga- hagan, the captain of the team, varied his position throughout the season and served as an excellent play- maker. Before you could say "Swish" the local lads had gone through ten games unbeaten. More attention was soon paid the up and coming G. W. quintet, who, as if in appreciation, won their last ten games to finish their greatest regular season with a phenomenal 5 record of twenty games without a loss.

Traveling to Richmond to vie for the Virginia State Title, the Doranmen promptly dumped Jefferson of Roanoke and Granby High. Meeting E. C. Glass, a team with twenty-two straight wins, G. W. sustained the only defeat on their greatest of records as they lost a tough game, 42-34. Nevertheless several boys from the team received special honors. Captain jim Gahagan made first team on every one of the following: All Metro, All Northern Virginia, All Suburban, and All Tournament. Bill Smith and Tony Daukas made first team All Northern Virginia and All Suburban and second team on the others. Smiley Moore made second team All Northern Vir- ginia and along with Donnie Hanback received several honorable mentions for berths on the others.

TRACK Having finished a fine cross-country season, the G. W. rracksters settled down to training for the indoor track season. G. W. successfully defended both their Virginia State and Scholastic Southern Conference titles. Paced by Bobby jones, national half mile champion who set a record in the mile as well as winning the half mile in the state meet and then in less than a week set a new record in the 1,000 yard run at North Carolina, the local thin clad beat the best of southern high schools. Several other boys promised points in future outdoor meets. Dean Cooksey, Bob Larsen, Cliff Caplan and jerry Perry made up the crack G. W. mile relay team that took first place at North Carolina and second in the state meet. Cooksey also won the quartermile at the State meet. Sonny Sanford, Bill Dudrow, and "Buck" Packard stood out in the hurdles, high jump, and shot put respectively. Art Williams and Gordon Lambdin, and Eddie Beall promised Bobby some good support in the distance races. Many others could well show up in the coming meets, and those previously named consti- tute only a few of the many it will take to provide G. W. with a winning track team. 112 1 BOBBY JoNEs The second annual Alexandria Memorial Relays were held at our stadium April 9. Special mention should go to Bobby Jones who, after winning every cross-country meet he was in, traveled to New York's Madison Square Garden along with his coach, Mr. Fitzgibbon, to win the National Scholastic Mile Champion. This made him the best high school miler in the United States.

BASEBALL The Presidents' baseball team representing Northern Virginia last year in the State playoffs lost out to Woodrow Wilson, the present State Champs. With eleven veterans returning, the team promised to be as good as last year's almost un- beatable eleven, if not better. In defending their Northern Virginia title this year they faced three teams. Mt. Vernon be- came a class A school and replaced Lane High of Charlottesville. The batteries for the Prexies were no problem with ace hurlers Billy Philyaw, "Bobo" Pa- vone, and Willie Zehring "chucking the old apple" to catchers Bob Via and Norman Grimm. jim Gahagan, Lester Scott, Fordie Thompson, Don Hanback, and George Nolan worked steadily for G. W. on the diamond. In their opening game against Falls Church, the Presidents showed much potential power as they downed their Virginia neighbors, 10-3. With nineteen games remaining to be played, the team had a line chance to take the Northern Virginia and Virginia State titles. 114 1949 Presidents in action M0 OGRAM CLUB Fin!

In addition to selling programs at the football games, the members decorated the goal posts for the Thanksgiving Day game. G. A. A. BASKETBALL Last year the basketball team had two games with W. and L. After a tough game which was won by the opponents, 24-21, the G. A. A.'s came through with a 35-24 victory in the second. The Hrst game of this year was played with Fairfax. The G. A. A.'s won by a score of 21-19. They also won a victory against W. and L., the score being 21-20.

The softball team had a busy season this year both here at G. W. and also away. The G. A. A. played Fairfax twice and dropped both games to them. The team fared better with Mt. Vernon, losing the first and winning the second. The intrepid G. A. A.'s also split their twin bill with W. and L. of Arlington. Falls Church was able to win the first game played but was held to a tie in the second game. 'i 120 Volleyball Q After much practicing and under the able coaching of Mrs. Gregory, the volleyball team was victorious in both games with W. and L. The lirst game which was played here was an easy win for the G. A. A. The second game, played away, went into an ex- tra period before the team finally pulled through with a victory. Fin!
