. . .A place for busy hands
Throughout the ages the hands of time moved ever forward, and behind
the face of the clock we see the evidences of the skilled hands of the past,
laboring in prayer, hoisting sails, raised in greetings to redmen, creating a new
land, signing a Declaration of Independence, taking up arms, signing a Con-
stitution, building a democracy, and a school-one of brick, honoring a great
man whose hands helped shape our history.
Into your hands we are placing this book. At your fingertips are pictures
of your classmates, your teachers, clubs, and various organizations. This is
a book for you to enjoy, a book full of memories of your high school days.
When you thumb your way through it, you will remember the girl who al-
ways had that certain twinkle in her eyes, or that handsome boy who sat in
front of you. Oh, yes, and you'll also remember the teacher whose leading
hands helped you over the many "humps" in the road.
Our busy hands have worked to keep these memories clear and as sharp
as the lines drawn by a compass.

MR. PHILIP LESTER
Our camera catches Mr. Lester giving his
son Philip, jr., a lesson on the saxaphone.
The Class of 1955 wishes to dedicate
the "Compass" to Mr. Philip Lester, the
second time this honor has come to Mr.
Lester since his arrival at G. W. in 1951.
Mr. Lester was born in Williamstown,
Pennsylvania, and did undergraduate work
with Jan and Ernest Williams. He then
taught for a year and a half in Camp Hill,
Pennsylvania, before he came to G. W.,
and his excellent work with the bands
and orchestra here gives evidence of his
extensive musical background.
Probably Mr. Lester's greatest contribu-
tion to the school was composing the
"Alma Mater" before he left in 1949, to
work on his Master's degree in Hagers-
town, Maryland. After an absence of one
year he returned to continue his services
at G. W. until last fall when he left to
take a position with the Campbell Music
Mr. Lester feels that although he may
have no official ties with our school, he
will remember with pleasure his days at
George Washington High.
Mr. Lester prepares to give us a solo on his
favorite instrument, the trombone.
SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
M53 Seniors or Fight!" This was our motto
as we bustled into the auditorium to hear
welcoming talks from the administration on
a hazy September morning five years ago.
Who were we? Why, very important people
of course, because we heralded a new era in
Alexandria education. We were the members
of the first eighth grade class. Some of us
were indignant at not being freshmen, and all
were somewhat conspicuous with bright, new
books tucked under our arms, but we managed
to outlast the year and the teachers and became
freshmen as a reward.
At last we could achieve that nonchalant air
as the tattered and mangled books of our
predecessors fell into our hands. Oh, there
was no stopping us then, and now we have
reached the end of the five years that seemed
like an eternity to us that long ago September
To be able to look down the hazy lane that
represents the past and to see all the events
that crowd the bends in the road is an im-
possibility, but some things do stand out
Remember our first dance, the Sophomore
Hop, on which we worked so hard, holding
our breath all the while for fear the decora-
tions would fall? They did, but we thought
the dance pretty successful anyway. This cli-
maxed the year, and the final reports made us
Now on to new and bigger things. Christ-
mas vacation brought one of Alexandria's
worst snow storms on the very night of the
Junior Class Christmas Hop, but those hardy
souls that did dare to venture out enjoyed a
gay evening amid the spicy fragrance of pine
For the Junior-Senior Prom we chose
"Rhapsody in Blue" as our theme and turned
the cafeteria into a real "Blue Heaven" with
sparkling stars and "blue notes" twinkling
from the ceiling. Again, however, the ele-
ments were against us. It rained. Still, even
this failed to dampen our spirits or halt our
progress, and soon june exams, were a thing
of the past and we were official seniors at last.
This fact was not to be disputed and in
recognition the school was ours for a day. We
had recently won the second Old Oaken
Bucket in our football career and we were as
proud as peacocks. We really made the most
of it! Bubble gum and caps were as noisy as
the seniors while great quantities of candy
disappeared from view.
Right on the heels of Senior Day came the
turn of the year and we were M53 Seniors"
at last. A long weekend was ours at the end
of the term with the celebration of the Inaugu-
ration to set the spirit for exams. The January
graduates took their final bow and the begin-
ning of the end had begun. The days flew
by and soon sunny dispositions vied with
sunny weather. June arrived and with it the
Senior Prom held at the National Airport.
The following evening we took the longest,
yet shortest, walk of our lives, and receiving
our diplomas, we, the "r' 53 Seniors", passed
SEN1oR CLASS OFFICERS
Witli officers like these, the Senior Class couldnt help being one of the friendliest ever.
SEATED: Ann Lee, Secremryg Mr. Lindsey, Spomor. STANDING: Lester McMenamin,
Pre.rifle1z!.' Tommy Eley, Vice-Premiefzt.
The "Big Bossu, as Mr. Lindsey could appropriately be called, keeps
the senior class from falling Qmomentarily speakingb by the wayside.
Treasurer without question, his rapid calculations of the Hnancial status
leaves us breathless and confused but he always manages to come out
with the book balanced.
LESTER MCMENAMIN and TOMMY ELEY
Should you require the services of our class
officers, just sing out for "Mac',, or Tommy, if
you prefer. Either way, a tall good-looking guy
with a dangerously contagious grin will answer
your call. Right away you'll notice the friendly
qualities that make him such a favorite at
school and on the dance floor or the diamond,
and it's a sure thing that his easy going manner
will make him a friend of yours too.

' JUNIOR CLASS
Once we, the 1955 Junior Class, put our hands
to something, it really gets done. We proved
this with the kind help of Mrs. Mary Snyder, our
sponsor, by such successful events as the Member-
ship Drive, the Christmas Hop, and the gay, color-
ful junior-Senior Prom, which was undoubtedly
our greatest success.
Next year as seniors we shall try to accomplish
as many things in an effort to get ahead.

F RESHMAN CLASS
The freshman class has been
very active in promoting the
spirit of G. W. Our hands
clapped loudly at the football
and basketball games and we
took part in many other activi-
ties. In fact our ability and
energy kept the whole school
stepping. Miss Elizabeth Thrift
deserves a big hand for her
leadership. The president of our
class once said, "She has not only
been a good sponsor but a good
'buddy' to all of us."

Note the youthful charm? Though we
are pictured here as eighth graders, light-
hearted and gay, our present status is that
of high schoolers, burdened with responsi-
bilities. Moreover, we were the last eighth
grade group to appear at G. W., and we
are the only class on record with not one
member "put backu. CWhere would we
go?D Now that we are here, whether
"promoted, or "placed", we are proud to
be members of the G. W. student body
and we hope to make G. W. proud of us.

It is well for students to be careful when
parents and teachers get together. In our
school, however, the students really proht when
the Parent-Teacher Association lends a helping
hand. This year our P.-T.A., under the chair-
manship of Mrs. H. E. Finnegan, has in-
augurated the custom of joint meetings with
the Faculty Council. At these meetings, par-
ents and teachers talk over the problems of the
students and possible solutions for them. The
group insurance plan and Back-to-School Night
were continued. Helping with the X-rays and
furnishing transportation for field trips were
other ways in which our parents and teachers
worked hand in hand to help solve student

He has been here at G. W. for seven
years and during that time has watched

Undoubtedly, these qualities influenced
his appointment to the Richmond High
Schools' evaluation committee. This com-

will not snatch Mr. Pruet away from

never too busy to listen to your

THE ENGLISH DEPARTMENT
The English Department is one of the
busiest groups, charged with the responsi-
bility of sponsoring yearly all literary ac-
tivities. As in the other departments, the
English teachers are constantly on the
lookout for something that will improve
the department and help our students to
be better prepared for going to college,
taking part in business, or simply enjoy-
The Language Department of George
Wfashington High School offers to its stu-
dents three years of work in French,
Spanish, and Latin. Now that students
are permitted to begin their language
courses as freshmen, we hope eventually
to be able to provide a four-year course
in some, or all, of the languages taught
in the department.
From grammar to Shakespeare it's a busy life
for English students. Shown here are Patsy
Howell, jack Brittain, and Mike Cohen as
they examine their peep boxes that illustate
Another department important to the
students at G. W. is the Science Depart-
ment. It strives to impart to the students
a practical knowledge of everyday scien-
The department includes such subjects
as physics, general science, biology, and
chemistry. It has modern apparatus and
is continually on the move to keep up
with the latest developments.
The Mathematics Department is by far
one of the most important in the school
curriculum. The elements of mathematics
aid the student in his work in both the
business and scientific fields. The math .
department includes all courses from.
business math to trigonometric functions,
all of which are expertly and efficiently
taught by an adequate and able staff.

SOCIAL STUDIES DEPARTMENT
American government and American history
along with civics and occupations are the only
required subjects in Social Studies. World his-
tory, government, problems of government, and
elementary psychology C a means of understand-
ing oneself and his fellow menj are also of-
fered. This department is concerned with a
living and challenging world.
INDUSTRIAL ARTS DEPARTMENT
The Industrial Arts Department oHers to the
student an education that is applicable to every-
day living. In the shop building, courses are
offered in electricity, auto mechanics, mechani-
cal drawing, woodwork, and printing. The print
shop has the responsibility of printing the
"Surveyor" and "Little Hatchet". The auto shop
students work on their own cars, thus applying
the fundamentals they have learned.

Some other melodious groups are the Girls'

There's nothing like figuring out a good hard math problem.
That's just what Billy Duff, jim Frazier, and'Gail Yarbrough

HOME ECONOMICS DEPARTMENT
The Home Economics Department is a vo-
cational department in which the home project
is important in each unit of work done at
school. It gives the student a chance to prac-
tice what she has learned at school.
Under this program some of the group ac-
tivities include a luncheon, prepared and served
to the parents by the students, and a Christmas
tea for the parents and teachers.

Few better examples of our theme can
be found than a visit to Miss Elizabeth
Eisenbergs art classes during the day.
Here you will find the art students
lending their skillful hands to a variety of
media and subject matter, from oils to
pastels, and from realism to abstraction.
The Art Department students illustrate
the "Little Hatchet" and the calendar
found in every classroom.
Your visit to the Art Department will
show you that G. W.ls busy artists are
enjoying themselves thoroughly in addi-
tion to accomplishing all these things.
It's fun to dig into the paints and brushes as Shirley Toombs
and Gene Drury prove by their happy smiles.

At the annual football banquet, Harold
Outten received the Dinky Scott Me-
morial Trophy for outstanding play
Lee Duncan won the most valuable
player award from the Sportsmanls Club.
Ralph Kneeland and Lee Duncan each
received a trophy for his touchdown in
the W. 84 L. game.
Of the twenty-five Varsity letter win-
ners, Duncan, Kneeland, Lehman, Eggles-
ton, Beasley, Carnahan, and Harrison will
not play next year. Beasley, Carnahan,
and Duncan earned positions on All State
teams and other area teams by their su-
perior play this year.
Although the George Washington Presidents were
more experienced than last year, they managed to
win only three of their ten games for head coach
Jim Ford. Two of those wins, however, won the
Northern Virginia football championship and our
second straight "Old Oaken Bucket".
The Presidents fielded a stron forward wall and
a lightweight but powerful backheld. The starting
lineup was weakened by several intermittent injuries,
including those to Harold Outten and Pat Eggleston,
two "All State" potentials.
Coach Ford was ably assisted by line coach Frank
Kapriva, and coach Harry "Red" Caughron, head
trainer and backfield coach Steve Osisek, and J. V.
coach Cy Painter. V

The Presidents opened their 1952 football
season with a hard fought 6-6 tie with the Dis-
trict Champions, Wilson Tigers.
After three scoreless quarters, Pat Eggleston
scored from the one-yard line for G. W. but
Fritz Sandoz tied the game up shortly after-
Harold Outten was the game's outstanding
player with his smashing tackles and defensive
G. W. lacked an adequate defense against
St. John's slick T-formation plays, and they
lost their first game of the year I4-0.
St. Johns powerful defense held the Prexies'
offense ineffective throughout the game, and
the two scores by Russelvyan and Hawkins in
the last half were all they needed to win.
Hopewell thoroughly trounced G. W. 32-0
for their 54th consecutive victory in three
years. The Blue Devils scored on the second
play of the game and twice in the second and
fourth quarters, mostly on wide open, long
The Presidents' offense was greatly improved,
but they lost scoring chances because of a loss
on a penalty.
After missing on five golden opportunities,
the Presidents lost to Thomas Jefferson 0-14.
The Prexies' defense was excellent in this
game, but their offense missed cashing in on
five fumbles and a blocked punt that John Cox
carried to T. jfs ten-yard line.
The Jeffs scored twice in the last five minutes
on a pass play and an end run.
G. W. was shut out for the fourth straight
game by Petersburg 0-6.
Once again the Prexies were a potent of-
fensive team except when they were near the
Petersburg's score was set up by a 90-yard
Luke Beasley was outstanding on defense,
recovering fumbles, blocking punts, and pre-
venting another sure touchdown.
Harold Outten C449 moves in to stop Lon Herz-
brum 4339 behind the line, Jim Whitestone Cat
rightj helped out.
The Presidents finally entered the win
column by defeating Fairfax 7-0.
After battling Fairfax to a standstill be-
tween the 20 yard markers, G. W. scored
in the last minute of play when Tom
Meiklejohn threw a 40-yard pass to jim
Whitestone. Dick Crompton was also
outstanding on offense for G. W.
SOUTHERN OF BALTIMORE
In the Annual Mom and Dad Night
game the Prexies defeated Southern I2-6.
Even though Southern did score in the
fourth period, first half scores by john
Bernhard and Dick Crompton gave the
Presidents a lead they never relinquished.
G. W.'s offense was greatly improved
by the return of Pat Eggleston as shown
by the fact that the Presidents equaled
the number of previous game touchdowns.
Lehman is pulled down by a W. 8: L. lineman
after he intercepted a pass. Beasley and Ebert
f53J were too late for the play.
G. W. played one of their best games but
lost to John Marshall 0-12.
Ralph Kneeland and Gerald McRae ran
well on offense, but the Prexie offense
bogged down again when they neared the
The game was closer than the score in-
dicates for the Jaymen's second score came
on the last play of the game.
The Mount Vernon Majors upset G. W.
for the first time in history 18-13.
G. Wfs first score was a pass play from
Lee Duncan to Ralph Kneeland. The other
touchdown was by Duncan, who ran off-
tackle for ten yards.
Mt. Vernon won the game in the second
half when the Prexie defensefweakened. Two
of the Majors' scores were by Roy Daniel
and one by John Blunt.

WASHINGTON AND LEE
For the sixth consecutive year George Washington defeated its arch rivals, Washington and
Lee, in the traditional Thanksgiving Day Game, 14-13.
The Presidents played their best game of the year in winning the second straight "Old
Oaken Bucketn and the Northern Virginia football championship.
Lee Duncan ran 33 yards and Ralph "Atom'i Kneeland 76 yards for the Presidents' touch-
downs. Walter Johnson once again provided the winning margin this year when he kicked
two very important extra point placements.
Tommy Haln and Tom Houston scored Washington and Lee's touchdowns that were set
up by a fumble and blocked punt.
The entire team clicked, hitting hard on all tackles and running well on
Reynolds 1363, Eggleston 4423, Lehman, and Kneeland combine to bring down Sedg-

This year track reached the top in its climb from
the doldrums to a major sport, Over one hundred
twenty boys answered the call. to spring track. With a
large group of boys returning from last year's fine squad
and a number of promising newcomers, the 1953 track
squad had more depth than any team in the last few
Many of the milers and half-milers participated in
cross country track last fall which was used as a con-
ditioning rather than a competitive sport.
The team worked hard and
was in top condition for its first
meet, the Alexandria Memorial
Relays. Charley Ginsberg and
Dave Brown in the mile and
half-mile, Lee Duncan, jim

emblematic of Eastern rowing

place in the schoolboy Nationals
held in Washington, D. C.

This year's Student Council really deserves
a hand. At the beginning of the year they
were hosts at a party given for the newcomers
to G. W. Les Mac's Rhythm-Aires furnished
The Pep Committee, organized for better
school spirit, made the arrangements for the
W. 8: L.-G. W. football game, the bonfire,
parade, and confetti party. You could also
find the members of the committee, which is
open to all the students, cleaning and polishing
our treasured athletic trophies.
Second semester students heard "music in the
air" in the cafeteria as Student Council repre-
sentatives spun records over the public address
system. This arrangement was made possible
by Mr. Pruet's opening his office three times
a week for the purpose. Everyone also en-
joyed dancing to the music of the Madrillon
Orchestra at the Student Council sponsored
dances after school.
The amendment to the constitution gave the
january graduates the opportunity, for the first .
time, to run for president and vice-president. Shir16ydR0SS Dlvhfy MCT-H125

This year the "Compass" sent representatives to two journalism
conferences. One was journalism Day at American University, and
the other was the S.l.P.A. Conference in Lexington, which three of
the 1953 staff members attended in April. The two-day schedule of
classes and discussions offered many pointers to help the staff improve
the i'Compass,'. At this convention Ailsa Mackenzie accepted, on
behalf of the 1952 "Compass" staff, the Trophy Award, which was
presented for the best yearbook entered in the S.l.P.A. contest for
schools having an enrollment over 1100.
A little proud of our newly acquired skills in cropping and pasting
page layouts and of last year's N.S.P.A. Hrst class rating, we of the
"Compass, staff of 1955 will have considered our efforts worthwhile
if you are as proud of and enjoy its contents half as much as we have
enjoyed compiling it.

Post", but it is just as important a
part of G. W. as these publications
are of the Nation's Capital. The staff

to have an uncanny nose for news. If

its a sure thing that you'll see them
in "The Surveyor".
With the efficient advice of Miss
Betty Lee Blankenship, and the pa-
tience of Mr. Drury of the print shop
to sustain them, the staff members
started the fall semester with a bang.
They were able to feature an exclusive
interview from Vice-President Nixon
during his campaign tour, much to the
chagrin of the Washington papers and
the pride of the staff.
During the 1951-52 school year
"The Surveyor" won first place in the
Quill and Scroll International rating
and an honor award from the Southern
Interscholastic Press Association.
The second semester staff took over
with enthusiasm, and consequently
"The Surveyor" took on a new sparkle,
The old four-page paper was increased
to six pages, new columns made their
debut, and more items of interest ap-
The final issue combined all the
joy of the coming months with the
hectic activities of the closing school
year, and was the perfect ending to a
perfect "Surveyor" season.

WORD EVENTS CLUB
The hands of the World Events Club reach
around the world to pick up problems concerning
political, economic, and social welfare. These
problems are weighed in each member's mind ac-
companied with such thoughts as "Stevenson or
Eisenhower?" and "Living sure is costly!', or
"What about the minority races and groups?"
With these questions plus numerous others, the
members attend meetings to seek the answers
that disturb so many.

In our school we have a miniature of the
great National Red Cross, the Junior Red Cross.
This year the Junior Red Cross is composed
of a Junior Council, comprised of representa-
tives from each home room, and a Senior Couri-
cil of members who are willing to take the
responsibility of the leadership of the club.
The two main objectives of the Junior Red
Cross are to conduct a membership drive and
to fill Christmas gift boxes to be sent to chil-
dren in foreign countries. Their infectious en-
thusiasm inspires the G. W. student body to
lend a hand in making a bright Christmas for
boys and girls less fortunate than themselves.

G. W.'s Dance Club is probably the most carefree of
all our clubs. Under Mrs. Moreland's enthusiastic
leadership the club has progressed to the point where
membership now has to be limited. Although it is
possible to learn almost everything from the soft shoe
to the minuet, most folks stick to the waltz, jirterbug,
and other popular dances. The purpose of the club is
to give its members poise along with good manners on

The club is proud of Kay Kampe who
was elected treasurer of the Martha Wasli-

captured the district "Miss F. H. Af, for
the past two years, and of their mem-

The activities were many and varied.
On Election Day in November, they
sponsored a student Presidential Election.
They sponsored a bake sale for extra
funds and also held their yearly Christmas
party for the ladies at the Anne Lee Me-

THE HOBBY CLUB
The Hobby Club is one of
G. W.'s finest and may now
certainly be considered estab-
lished and few other clubs
better illustrate our theme or
carry out the ideas set forth
in the foreword. Members
spend leisure hours sharing
their hobbies and many active
ones doing constructive work
in the interests of others. For
instance, a call went out short-
ly after Christmas for Christ-
mas cards. These cards were
made into scrapbooks which
are now providing a spot of
color in hospitals somewhere
in the United States.
The Hobby Club is a grab
bag of fun. Should you reach
in, you might pull out one of
any number of interesting
hobbies: photography, model
making, collections of all de-
scriptions, magic, and raising
For this reason, you will
find that the Hobby Club is
an excellent place for the
young set of G. W.

planned for students in business education.
One of the club's most successful projects con-
tinued from last year is the student bank, super-
vised by the business education teachers and
run by the students. Any G.W.ite may deposit
money in the bank any day during the school
On the lighter side, the F. B. L. A. sponsored
a dance and a bake sale and worked hard to
make their year a successful one.

THE DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION CLUB
Members of the club are those that are en-
rolled in the retail training course. The club
proposes to teach leadership and cooperation
among the students and furnish entertainment
for those who work after school and who
wouldn't otherwise be able to participate in
In addition to the regular dances, hayrides,
parties with neighboring' Distributive Educa-
tion Clubs of Virginia, and an Employer and
Employee Banquet, the club sponsored a unique
series of dances on November 25 and Novem-
ber 26. The dances were held in the cafeteria
during the activities periods. As the purpose
was to lend a helping hand to needy families
of Alexandria, the price of admission was one
article of non-perishable food per person.
Members were in attendance at the Northern
Virginia Distributive Education Clubs, conven-
tion held in Winchester in February, and in
March a member of the club attended the State
convention in Richmond.

Full of life and vigor, the Cheerleaders Club
had a very successful year under the sponsorship
of Miss Herde and Miss Etheridge. They spent
long hours practicing new cheers and songs
and improving old ones so they could lead them
at football and basketball games. Our cheer-
leaders followed the band and team to games
as far away as Petersburg and Richmond, as
well as to various others not played on our
There are two squads of cheerleaders, the
varsity and the junior varsity, and both work
hand in hand with the Pep Club to promote
school spirit at all games. J. V. Cheerleaders
are chosen every February on the basis of their
ability to cheer, moral standards, personal ap-
pearance, and coordination. After one year,
they are eligible to become varsity cheerleaders
if they show the necessary ability.

long way since it was organized at the be-
ginning of last year. The club consists of
about thirty girls who are interested in be-
coming majorettes. They meet once a week
for practice sessions and every club morning
for a business meeting.
The club's interest in school activities has
sparked many plans. A few of these were
a junior corps, who will take the place of

The George Wasliington High
School Band has come a long way
since its beginning in 1937. Mr.
Smith became our conductor in
December of 1952.
The band has achieved many
goals of which we can all be
proud, Each year, its member-
ship of approximately seventy
participates in many musical ac-
tivities. Some of these are: foot-
ball games during the fall se-
mester, the annual Apple Blos-
som Festival at Winchester,
school assemblies, parades, and
an annual Spring Concert. Also
the band participates in the an-
nual District Festival, held at
various cities in the area, and at which our band is graded by
expert musicians as to its interpretation of different grades
of music. Their musicianship is also a factor in this grading.
To quote the mutual feeling of all the members of our Band,
"We are all one, big, happy familyf'
Dickie Moore, Carolyn Spinks, Dalton Carter give us a little "Sweet
Harmonyi' in a spare moment.
