Snider 4Dedication The class of 1950 wishes to dedicate the Compass to one of our chief and most beloved directors. She has instilled enthusiasm in our actions, placed confidence in our thoughts, and established loyalty in our hearts. She has been untiring in her efforts to provide each performer with a stepping-stone to some greatly desired goal. Her teaching ability has equipped us with a better background for the drama of life, and her friendly manner and vivacious personalit) have created a feeling of sportsmanship and school spirit worthy of highest acclaim. In appreciation of her valuable assistance, we dedicate this annual to MltS. MaRY SNIDER.i it o i. o in v i: ■-• the world's a slope And all the men and women merely players. . . —Willi m Siivk» pk re The class of 1950 has been pla ing its part, though only a hit. throughout the past four ears. Now it is ready to step forth onto a much larger stage to perform before a more critiral audience, to compete with more experienced actors, and to look forward to both successes and failures. The production will l»e a difficult one, for each performer will be called upon to play new parts under new directors. s each of us must take a definite role during our lives, we feel that this portrayal of school life through drama is an appropriate theme for our 1950 Comjxiss. 6ttf.

Mrs. Stanton THE JUNIOR CLASS The Junior class is largely indebted to Mrs. Thelma Stanton, our inspiring and enthusiastic sponsor, for its achievements throughout this year. A firm foundation for the scheduled activities has been the Junior Board, which represented each Junior home room and carried out I lie business of the class. One act of the hoard was the acceptance of a budget allocating funds for the Compass, a gift to the school, and the Junior-Senior Prom. Among the activities of the class were the Membership Drive, Christmas Hop. Junior Class Pin Drive, and an outstanding event, the Junior-Senior Prom in the spring. e sincerely hope we w ill meet with similar success in our Senior year and do wish the best of luck to Junior classes to come. 60the Sophomore class SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS President Charles Mott ley I ice-President Joan Marsh Secretary-Treasurer Wallace Co 111 in Left tv rifiht: Joan Marsh.

Among those who deserve recognition are Miss Elaine Weil and Miss I nis Woodwood, sponsors of the literary staff, and Miss Katherine McElrov, who is in charge of the advertising staff. Responsibility for the important task of financing the book rests with Mr. Irving Lindsey. Each staff member has given valuable time and effort toward the completion of this |H rformance.

The play “Hamshackle Inn", a mystery farce that ran for several seasons on Broadway, broke several records here at C. W. II. S. The fall play “January Thaw", also a Broadway comedy, played to another record crowd. One other big event on the calendar was the one-act play contest to which the 0. V. Players played host in tin spring. The contest involved the five largest schools in the Northern District. Kveryone in the productions, from the stage managers to the bit players, had a great deal of fun and chalked this up as the best year the G. W. Players have ever had.

The first group is composed of sophomores, juniors and seniors who take a course in practical economics. It gives them a general knowledge of purchasing, social security, insurance, budgeting, transportation, housing, planning a wardrobe, 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 is followed by at least fifteen hours of practical experience in the store each week. Not only does the student receive this valuable training, but he also receives the same rale of pay as part time employees who are regularly employed plus an extra credit in school. Consumer Education max In started in either semester and carries one unit of credit. Retail training is started in September and is taken the entire year for two units of credit. One hundred and eighty-five students were given part-time training this year and placed in holiday positions. The retail training students have charge of operating the school supply store. Displays made up of merchandise borrowed from local stores are used in practicing this phase of the work and also make the display equipment appear more attractive. Classes arc also made possible for veterans who are on-the-job training employees. They receive a seal on a Certificate of Credit for the completion of a twenty-hour course.

When tin gridiron dust had cleared, the local lads had completed their greatest season since 1935. They won nine of their ten games, took second place behind Hope-well in the Virginia State League with a 6-1 record, won the Northern Virginia State Championship for the third straight year, extended their record on the G. . home field to 21 straight wins, and best of all won the “Old Oaken Bucket" for keeps. MT. VERNON Seemingly plagued by first game jitters, tin Presidents had to wait until the closing minutes of the contest before earning a close 15-13 decision over their neighbors from Mt. Vernon. Nelson Wood led the attack, scoring both touchdowns and adding an extra point. Donnie Hanhack clinched the game for G. W. when he scored two points on a safety. LANE In their second encounter, the local lads overcame a twelve point deficit to whip their rivals from Charlottesville. 19-12. Jack Carow. replacing injured wing back George Nolan, and Dean Cooksey shone in the Presidents’ back field while the line behind “Tubby " Dixon and Lester Scott stopped the Lane boys cold.

MORRISON I he G. . squad, minus three of their first team linemen fought a stubborn battle throughout their third game but ended up on the short end of a 13-16 score. Bub Stewart. Pete edel. Dean Cooksey and Earl Dixon all played great ball in a losing effort. THOMAS JEFFERSON Next, after seven years of continued losses, the Prexies finally turned the table-on a tough T. J. team, whipping them 20-13. The G. W. line played as never before and the T. J. boys could go nowhere. FAIRFAX Traveling to Fairfax, the great squad from G. W. met the Rebels in a sea of mud. The staunch Prexie line allowed them to gain a scant five yards from scrimmage throughout the entire contest while the flleet backs rolled up a 17-6 victory. GONZAGA The Presidents next downed Gonzaga's Purple Eagles. 6-0. in one of the greatest contests ever played on the G. . home gridiron. Both teams played outstanding ball. “Tubby" Dixon. Tee Phillips. Shady Schelhorne. Lester Scott. Don Richards, Gene Guess. Pete Wedel. and Donnie Hanhack. G. W. Linemen, played sensational defensive games. Bob Stewart scored the only touchdown. BALTIMORE CITY COLLEGE Treking to Baltimore, the local lads made it four in a row as they squashed a helpless Baltimore City College team 21-6. Arlen “Shad" Brown scored two of the Prexies three tallies, Nelson Wood scoring the other. “Tubby" Dixon dropped three perfect placements through the uprights. 101JOHN MARSHALL With about as many Alexandrians in the stands as Richmonders, the Prexies next rolled over the John Marshall Justices in Richmond, 25 7. The game was well played by both teams and the line play was an outstanding feature throughout the entire contest. George Nolan, Arlen Brown, Pete Wedcl, and Jerry Perry each tallied once for G. W. EPISCOPAL Resuming relations with Episcopal High School, the Presidents prompt!) dumped their Alexandria neighbors 32-7. as the) prepared for their annual I'urkey Day clash with W-L. Our lads passed and ran rings around their Alexandria neighbors. W L With their first chance to win the “Old Oaken Bucket" for keeps l way of 32 7, and 16 0 w ins in 1947 and " IB. tin Prexies faced the Little Generals of Washington and l-ee. Coming from behind twice, the “Woodsonites squeezed by their rough rivals from Arlington in a 13-12 thriller. It was a great battle all the way with G.W. emerging the winner of the game complete with “Bucket." Nelson Wood scored both Prexie touchdowns in this, the final game of the season, just as lie luul scored both tallies in the initial game. Earl Dixon provided the winning margin when lie kicked his eleventh extra point of the season. AWARDS Nellie Wood received the Dink) Scott Troph) for bis outstanding pla in the Ml. Vernon game, while Tee Phillips was presented the "Most aluahlc Pla)er I rophy. Tubby Dixon was chosen for the second straight year on the Virginia All State learn, and many of tin other players were honored by receiving berths on the various other all-star teams. •OUR FOOTBALL Ql KKN" Mr. 'I'.

Basketball The 1950 edition of the George Washington hoopsters wound up the season with an impressive 18-8 record. They captured their eighth straight Northern irginia title with an 8-0 record and took consolation honors in both the Virginia State and Metropolitan Star Tourneys. With veterans. Don Hanback. Erwin Jones, and team captain “Smiley" Moore, paving tin wav. the team, after a shaky start, settled down into winning ways. Tliev ran their home victory skein to twenty-five straight before Glass High sneaked by them 41 33 late in the season. By this time, newcomers “Sonny" Spittle. Bob Kessler, and “Buggs" Oliver had gotten their spurs well into the hardwood and were dumping them in with regularity. The regular season finished all too rapidly. with the locals sporting a -14-6 record. Relinquishing their crown a Metro Champs was perhaps the saddest part of a great season to the Presidents, ftrr bouncing Hvattsville 43-26. they lost a heartbreaker to McKinle) Tech 42-41 but came back the next night and beat Eastern to take third place. 105Traveling to Richmond, ihe locals promptly dumped Woodrow Wilson 60-44 to advance to the semi-finals of the State Championship playoffs. Grarnby spoiled the Prexies’ dream of becoming State Champs 51-46 and then went on to capture the state title. The Prexies made it a great season, nevertheless, as they whipped a supposedly invincible Roanoke team. 52 48. to take consolation honors. I he squad will lose three great regulars when Jones.

Track Under a new coach. Mr. John Ford, and minus the might) Bobby Jones who took up track at North Carolina State under former track coach Tom Fitzgibbon. the G. W. Thinclads opened the track season with several impressive victories in the two-mile cross country grind. tad by Tom illiams and Gordon Lambdin who both bested the old record in the Virginia State Cross Country Meet, the harriers dum| cd Wilson. Anacostia. and W.L. Highs, while they placed three points behind Hampton High to take second place honors in the State Meet. After a rough indoor season in which the tracksters relinquished their State and Southern Conference titles, they faced their coming outdoor meets rather gloomily. Hope sprang anew, however, as they whipped Anacostia. 60-58, in their opening meet. The Presidents wound up ninth out of nineteen entering schools in the third annual Alexandria Memorial Belays held here at G. W. 110Several hoys promised points in future meets by their impressive showings early in the season. Tommy Holmes. Crenshaw Hardy. Pete Wedel. and Karle Payne stood out in their respective field events: the pole vault, the high jump, the shot put, and tin discus. Lamhdin and illiams provided good distance material while veterans Dean Cooksey and Jerry Perry should help the team take several firsts in the relays as well as win their respective specialties: the quartennile and the dashes. Don ilanhack. shooting for his fourth varsity letter in 1950 should add a good many first places in the low hurdles. In their initial meets this season the thinclads proved exceptionally strong in the field events, something they have failed t - do for mam seasons past. This spelled the difference between victory and defeat in many meets. It takes many second and third places as well as first places to win a track meet, and those names mentioned above constitute only a few of the many hoys it took to provide G. Y. with a winning track team. CROSS COl'NTRY TR ACK TF.AM First row. leit to right: Ben Woodbridge. Skip Ward. Tommy William-. Gordon Lambdin. Charlie Jones. Second row: Doc Blanchard. Wade Marlin.
