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. sgGTON GEORGE OUHOQ 'X 4? it :J E2 Uv 7 'f 52:55 if 'Z nm ol ,mm 4 SZ 32 . fo 65,' 47 . -7 OTP -QP 6 Foreword Dedication Seniors Underclassmen Administration and Faculty Cadets Sports Clubs Advertisements TABLE OF CONTENTS Page Here is a note from us to you in which we present the theme of the 6 "'53" Company. He is the one we hold in highest esteem. 8 At last the proverbial "stately seniors" are sitting on top of the world. 9 They are apprentices on the road of learning. 43 They hold the reins and keep G. W. running smoothly. 69 Their capable hands have helped mold our individual characters, and 69 they remain in our memories as being friends as well as teachers. Precision to the strains of "Marche Militaireu. 79 They are our acknowledged heroes, the pride of G. W. 93 "Variety is the spice of life", and thus the clubs of G. W. offer variety 115 to the regular schedule which is comparable to the "plum" in the "pudding". These are the "yellow pages" of the C ompau. 7 MR. PHILIP LESTER Our camera catches Mr. Lester giving his son Philip, jr., a lesson on the saxaphone. DEDICATION 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 Company. 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. 8 Mr. Lester prepares to give us a solo on his favorite instrument, the trombone. f 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 day. 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 clearly. 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 upper-classrnen. Now on to new and bigger things. Christ- mas vacation brought one of Alexandria's worst snow storms on the very night of the 10 Junior Class Christmas Hop, but those hardy souls that did dare to venture out enjoyed a gay evening amid the spicy fragrance of pine boughs. 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 into history. 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. MR. L1NDsEY 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.

Under her brisk "petticoat rule", the Student Council has had an extremely active year. STEWART WILLIS What more could be asked of a lieutenant colonel of the Cadet Corps than an apt combina- tion of brain and brawn? Stewart's destiny seems to be with the services, and his military inclina- tion is supplemented with an easy and courteous manner. JOAN BARTLETT Joan has served as secretary-treasurer of our class, and as her, title suggests, is chock full of fun. Although small in size, you'll find she has a large smile and a generous heart. RALPH KNEELAND, LESTER MCMENAMIN True popularity twins, Ralph Kneeland and Lester McMenamin, tied in three vote-offs for their joint title. Both boys have served as class prexies and both are outstanding in the field of sports. ELLEN MEINTS Ellen, "Pal" to her friends, lives up to her nickname most satisfactorily. Peppy, Athletic, and Lithe are adjectives that may well be used in describing this senior with the secret sparkle and the saucy curls. RAY CARNAHAN Ray is worth his weight in gold in friendships circle as well as in the "foul shot" circle. Easy going and fun loving, Ray can usually be found wherever harmless mischief is brewing. BILL CUMMINGS King of comedy and master of frolic, Bill has an Impromptu wit that seems to be his right-hand companion which can always turn a frown to a smile. MOST ATHLETIC: Ellen Meints, Ray Carnahaxn CELEBRITIES OUTSTANDING IN LEADERSHIP AND SCHOLARSHIP Shirley Ross, Stewart Willis. MOST POPULAR: Ralph Kneeland, Joan Bartlett Lester McMe-namin.

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.

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."

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.

Departments new revolving cupboards on "Back-to-School Night." PARENT-TEACHER ASSOCIATION 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 problems. P.-T.A.

PRUET, Principal Hand in hand with progress and a democratic order of school life goes our principal, Edgar G. Pruet. To say that he is respected and distinguished is in- sufficient. This is indeed a cold descrip- tion of a man who is admired by all who know him. He has been here at G. W. for seven years and during that time has watched the perspective of the school enlarge along with the annual enrollment. Policies have changed and attitudes with them, but Mr. Pruet has retained his cheery manner and genuine friendliness through- out. Undoubtedly, these qualities influenced his appointment to the Richmond High Schools' evaluation committee. This com- mittee not only identifies deficiencies in the Thomas jefferson and john Marshall school systems, but meets throughout the year in order to submit workable sug- gestions for improvement. i We certainly hope that our good for- tune in having him as our principal will continue and that bigger and better things will not snatch Mr. Pruet away from G. W. for many years to come. Anal our Aniftant rincqmlf MRS. JOSEPHINE TOLBERT No one better personifies the "busy bee" than Mrs. Tolbert. She evidently thinks that "to work is a virtue" as she is always absorbed in solving the countless problems which confront her in the course of the day. In spite of this, she is never too busy to listen to your troubles or share in your happiness. MR. ROBERT GARNER Mr. Garner could easily qualify as the "rolling stone which gathers no moss"-as he is always on the go. Engaged in the hundred and one tasks that come his way, it is easy to see that his seemingly tireless energy is linked with efficiency and diligence. 70 Capabilit come to ine MISS JEAN WHITE - MR.

G. W.'s seniors. While neither Miss White not any of the counselors can answer that question exactly, they can of- fer help in thinking through the problem or suggest ap- propriate colleges or future Occupations. ' In addition to the three of- fices oft the past,'there is now a fourth since Miss Stewart Jones entered the department and settled in a nook behind the filing cabinets across the hall.

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- ing life. LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT 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 , "Evangeline". 72 SCIENCE DEPARTMENT 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- tific principles. 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. MATHEMATICS DEPARTMENT 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. Ray Carnahan, Bill Heflin, and Bob Moore have pleased faces when a tough physics prob- lem is linally solved. , A r Top Row, left in right: MISS NELLIE CLAYTON, Libraryg MISS ELEANOR CURIRIN, English, Double- Barred Cross Society Sponsor, MRS.

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. 74 "Maybe we don't under- stand it but we can try," says Roslyn Kleinman in this picture.

Everyone who's had music at G. W. is really for it. The teachers are enthusiastic, and a variety of mu- sical groups are offered. They are the Senior, Reserve, and Junior Bands, A Cappella Choir, Advanced Mixed Chorus, and Boys' Glee Club. Some other melodious groups are the Girls' Ensemble, Boys' Quartet, and the Woodwind and Brass Ensembles. There's nothing like figuring out a good hard math problem. That's just what Billy Duff, jim Frazier, and'Gail Yarbrough are .trying to do.. 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.

DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT Working with the merchants of Alex- andria and vicinity, Mr. Funesti has brought to D. E. students a worth-while program, and his friendly personality in- creases their interest in the work. In this fifteen hour a week course they are taught the principles of salesmanship and retailing and the technique of giving congenial service to employers and cus- tomers. BUSINESS EDUCATION DEPARTMENT Increased numbers of students enroll each semester in the business education courses. In this department courses that would profit anyone are general business, eco- nomic geography, business' arithmetic, of- fice practice, and business law. Typewrit- ing is a popular Course, as nowadays near- ly everyone knows how to type. Some of these subjects prepare students for of- fice positions while others furnish gen- eral information.

ART DEPARTMENT 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.

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. VARSITY FOOTBALL 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 g L 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 G. W.

After three scoreless quarters, Pat Eggleston scored from the one-yard line for G. W. but Fritz Sandoz tied the game up shortly after- wards. Harold Outten was the game's outstanding player with his smashing tackles and defensive blocking. ST. JOHNS 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 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 distance runs. The Presidents' offense was greatly improved, but they lost scoring chances because of a loss on a penalty. THOMAS JEFFERSON 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. 96 PETERSBURG 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 goal. Petersburg's score was set up by a 90-yard kick-off return. Luke Beasley was outstanding on defense, recovering fumbles, blocking punts, and pre- venting another sure touchdown. Q Harold Outten C449 moves in to stop Lon Herz- brum 4339 behind the line, Jim Whitestone Cat rightj helped out. FAIRFAX 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. JOHN MARSHALL 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 goal. The game was closer than the score in- dicates for the Jaymen's second score came on the last play of the game. MOUNT VERNON 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. Beautiful and popular Loretta Kesterson is crowned Football Queen by Mr. Marshall Beverly while Beverly Eli nn, a member of her court, watches happily. 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. offense. 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- wick of W. 8: L. after a punt. 97 x X sp MQ xx -x E. .x lb - Nag, . , 1 X s Nas fy. 3.

TRACK 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 years. 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 Whitestone, and Gene Drury in the sprints and hurdles, John Cox in the weight events, and Dave Wallace in the high jump gave Coach "Red" Caughron many pleasant moments. R i l e y Nixon, track team cap- tain, clears a hurdle in a prac- tice sprint. Lee Duncan and Ben Woodbridge "get set" for a practice sprint. Track has once again regained its place as a major spring sport. 105 4 ff if ,, PM iqgvff f-Mei' 4' ye!

Second semester students heard "music in the air" in the cafeteria as Student Council repre- sentatives spun records over the public address system.

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.

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- peared. 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. 122 Editorial Staff 6First Semesterbz Row I: Ann Forest, Nancy Johnson.

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.

Stamping and filing cards are the chief duties, but one may also acquire a slight- ly cross-eyed look from watching the clock and signing passes at the same time. After two semesters of service, mem- bers may receive their pins, and upon graduation, those with three semesters of service receive honorable mention, while the ones with four semesters rate a special certificate. In addition to work in the library, year- ly activities include an annual picnic and field trip.

CONTESTANTS' CLUB The Contestants' Club is made up of smaller clubs which include the Spelling, Prose and Poetry Reading, Creative Writing, Public Speaking, and Debating. Throughout the year the students in the respective clubs enter the district and State contests. A On a tour around the school to visit the different clubs we started on the first floor in room 118. Here we sat in on a spelling bee participated in by mem- bers of the Spelling Club. Mrs. Lipscomb is the sponsor of this club and coached the State winner, Don Price. We then went to room 210 and saw Miss Somers, the sponsor of the Reading Club, listen- ing to the State winner in prose reading, Marita Smith. In room 317 Miss MacManus was comment- ing on the work of some of the staff members of the "Little Hatche-t'. After stopping to say hello to Mr. Bagby, who sponsors the public speaking sec- tion and also the entire club, we went to room 318 where Miss Callahan was giving out the assignment for the next debate. 16:52 LSE E it 1 5 ii! f"x'.?'3,h Row 1: Frances Naylor, Carole Webb, Sue Nuesse, Carol :Smith.

Members soon started work on the fall play. Donned in jeans and old shirts, the stage crew gathered in their favorite meeting place, the courtyard. After scrubbing, painting, and rewiring the stage and props from top to bottom, it was ready for capacity. Practicing for the spring play, "Melody Jones", on the "stage" in Miss JeHerson's room are: Tom Beechy, Roslyn Kleinrnan, and Shirley Ross. Ellis Davis, Lynn Thomas, Milton Kidd, Patty Barnes, and Tom Beechy brightly pop up from behind the furniture to surprise Don Wasserman during practice for the spring play, "Melody Jones". the fall production, "Beauty and the Beef", a teen-age comedy. November Zl, found the auditorium filled to The curtain opened on a heart- warming yet sparkling comedy which proved to be a smash-hit. To celebrate this success, two big parties for the cast and entire crew were held. In January and February the club was busier than ever in preparation for March events. Two productions were in progress, the Literary Con- test play, which was an intense drama, "The Bond Between", by Mae Howley Barry and the annual three-act play, "Melody Jones", presented later in the season. And so, a wonderful year in drama, the busiest and best since the club was founded, came to a close. Row 1.'

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.

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.

They are strong because of their many activities, each of which is planned with the eight F. H. A. purposes and their motto, "To- ward new horizons", in mind. The club is proud of Kay Kampe who was elected treasurer of the Martha Wasli- ington Federation, of the two girls, Martha Fulcher and Sally Salts, who have captured the district "Miss F. H. Af, for the past two years, and of their mem- bers, who qualified for the Junior Home- maker F. H. A. Degree. 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- morial Home. There was a spring dance and in May, a reception for parents and teachers at which the new F. H. A. of- ficers were installed and the "Outstanding Girl" award was presented.

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 pets. For this reason, you will find that the Hobby Club is an excellent place for the young set of G.

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 year. 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 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 extracurricular activities. 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.

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 own court. 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. l Marge Silcox, Mary Kirkland. Becky Balderson, Jo Ann Hamlet.

MAJORETTE CLUB Under the able leadership of Mrs. Grace McGilvray, the Majorette Club has come a 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 marching majorettes when they gradu- ate, an exciting Valentineis Day Dance, and brand new uniforms for the marching majorettes.

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. 149 ndemtudying the 'Bzlg Bmfrj' junior Band: Row I: Al Schneitler, Sue Smith, Charles Arm- Music, the universal language, provides strong, Tommy Orndorff, Frank Ballenger, Van Slaymaker.
