TUH NT UN DURING the past school year, the Student Council, composed of the Sixth Form officers and the president and the vice-president of the Third, Fourth, and Fifth Forms, has tried to attain four goals set in September. The first of these was strict observance of the Honor System, the backbone of the school. Because of the profound respect for the Honor System built up thrOugh the many years in which it has operated so success- fully, the achievement of this goal was easy. The second objective was to promote good school spirit with particular emphasis on cheering and pleasant relations with other schools. The cheering this year was the best we have had for some time, and our relations with other schools have been excellent throughout the year. The third goal set was the fostering of the individual happiness of the students, and the council did a good job in making some salutary social adjustments. The final aim was to develop greater respect for school property. Though we have made some progress in this endeavor, we have not accomplished as much as we had hoped to achieve. During the whole school year, the student council met once a month for about an hour, and the Sixth Form officers met separately once a week for an hour to discuss the four goals, insuring a close Check on them during the whole year. The student council has truly done an admirable job in all the areas in which it has been active. S tmzdiiz g: SIXTH FHHNI SIXTH FORM.

As the time draws swiftly near when we, the Class of 1956, must leave these halls of Gilman, we cannot help regarding Our lives here in retro- spect. We discover many individual memories of the fun we had at a certain dance or at in- formal gatherings, where we imitated certain teachers, yet, more prominent than these, are the things for which we, as a group, will always remember Gilman. We can recall cperhnps a little vaguely nowL how, when we first entered Gilman, one teacher, an adviser, took interest in us and led us safely through one or two trying years. He is now, perhaps, still giving aid and wise and experienced counsel to us as we con- sider college choices. We remember the many extracurricular activities at Gilman and how they, in addition to the classroom, gave us the educa- 11 tion of which we are so proud. We also cannot forget the Honor System and the important role which it has played in moulding our characters. Perhaps now we cannot recognize the value of the education we have received. As we move on to college and finally "out into the world" to face the many problems and difficulties of the American way of life, however, we will, most assuredly, find that we will be able to face suc. cessfully any problems. We will face these prob- lems as honorable and responsible individuals; and, as we have learned to do at Gilman, we Will perform any job or duty thoroughly and efficiently. This spring, we will bid our farewells, leaving behind experiences which will perhaps never be equalled; yet these Will live with us, for we can- not forget the teachers and principles of Gilman.

JOHNS HOPKINS YHU All THERE URNING the corner by the mailboxes, I almost ran into Dave Dresser; so, I asked him where Wilkie Wilkerson was. Dave said he was in the Sixth Form Room immediately after lunch. Thank- ing him, I went in, and all the Seniors were talking about teachers, explaining Davels absence. Everyone was gathered into little groups, there being more cliques in this class than students. I banged right into the first group, composed, in order of social importance, of: Wagner, Johnson, Webb, Stick, Sowell, Slaughter, and Penniman; but they were too busy adjusting their cummer- bunds and talking about how horrible phonies are who even care about Wilkie Wilkerson. Near them, Sair Sullivan was practicing his Peter Parrott Blanchard award acceptancee'he walked in gen- tle blue suedes." Biggs, Fowlkes, Eaton, Car- liner, Folger, and McNair were writing Lawrence Welk fan mail. Passing on, I heard Phil Briscoe talking very angrily t0 Pitcher, Claggett, Lord, and Rose, say- ing: IILook, Coop, you can be Little John; you can be Friar Tuck, but Iim going to be Robin Hood!" I didift bother to stop, but hustled over to where Baukhages, Wolf, Meyers, Brennan, and Hopkins were offering Jim Taze as a sacrifice to the Co-Great White Fathers, Moss and Boynton, and their rub-out man, Fee-fl-fo-fum Lewis. Afraid that Wilkie might be put in the pot too if I mentioned him, I left hurriedly. Fried Wilks probably isnt as good as Slater fish cakes or even fricasseed Taze. The next group consisted of con-man Julian Jones, Fred Glann, Spencer Everett, Cooper Gra- ham, Leo Collier, Fred Neesemann, and Jim Hartle. In a package deal, Jones had just sold them the Brooklyn Bridge, the Taj Mahal, and the Towson Teen. When I walked up, Collier, Glann, and Everett threw their noses into the air and stomped off. Taking the hint, I bounced over Merrill Lincoln wrestling Chief Don Eagle and heard Ottsgrotts exclaim loudly: HI can lick anyone in the Sixth Form Room!" He slunk off to a closet, however, when Geo. Crocker-Dowell raised his slide rule. Suddenly, Pete Gardiner cried, "Look!" Simul- taneously, Tom Carroll fainted, for there, floating high above, were the ghosts of Vic Bridgman and Bruz Jory. Pete Thomas and Sandy Dugan also claim they saw Sam Smith hanging on a light, but that is disputed. Just then, I spotted Wilkie Wilkerson. He was having a cigarette shot out of his mouth by blindfolded, Hoffman Club trick-shooter, Sandy Watkins. Before I could get to Wilkie, though, I had to pass through Dankmeyer, Nelson, Eger- ton, Yaggy, and Fite. I turned around to see the whole Class of 1956 there before me, except, of course, Bill Zeeveld, whom I can see right at the top of this page. 26 ELASS BALLUT Done 12205! for Gilmml ....................

TH UNDER the able leadership of Frank Deford and Ed Brown, president and VlCC-prCSlant, re- spectively, the Fifth Form has given strong support to every school activity. Fifth Formers have made some excellent con- tributions to the success of the teams this year. Captain Frank Riggs, Tom Bowyer, and Chip Offutt were among the Juniors who proved val- uable on the football team. Many wrestling meets saw Billy Woodward, Ed Brown, and Pat Mundy Victorious in their classes; while on the basketball court, Bruce Brian and Tom Garrett Not only did Fifth Formers play active parts 011 the teams, but many aided the team greatly. rendered useful service on stadium committees. HlVl With many successful concessions at the Circus, the Fifth Form, again illustrating its initiative and energy, added to the gaiety of the occasion and did its part in raising money for the Auditorium Fund. This year, as always, the Christmas vacation opened with the gala Fifth Form Dance. This unusually successful dance was a result of the efforts of the Dance Committee, headed by Tom Garrett. Late this spring, the Fifth Form will hold its elections for the president and the Vice-president 0f the Senior class of 1957. These two, with their secretary and treasurer, will head the Stu- dent Council next yearha year which is antici- pated with great enthusiasm. 32 FOURTH FORM, Fin! 70w: Griswold, B., Secremry; Barnes, Vice-Prwidenl: Marty, Prerident; Barker, R., Tremmer.

The Blue and Gray got off on the wrong foot with a dose 7-6 loss to St. Paul's in a game that saw six Gilman players injured. Still suffering from the injuries incurred in the St. Paul's game, the Varsity lost, by a de- cisive 26-0 score to Calvert Hall the following week. We were outplayed by Poly, whose fast backs were particularly devastating in the second half and who defeated the Blue and Gray by 43-0. After a week's rest, a fired-up Gilman eleven surprised a strong Severn team in one of the upsets 0f the season by turning the 511721; predic- tion for a HSevern romp" into a 19-12 Gilman Victory. After receiving the opening kickon, the Varsity, directed by quarterback George Boynton, put on a sustained drive that culminated in a touchdown on :1 fifteen-yard offttackle play by Captain Frank Riggs after only four minutes of the first quarter. A Severn drive was stopped short by a determined Gilman defense unit sparked by Tom Bowyer, Tim Lewis, Cotton Fite, and Ed Brown. A combination of a stirring 30- yard run by halfback Ken Marty and a TD plunge by Wilkie Wilkerson accounted for Gilmarfs second score of the day. With the addition of a touchdown-run by Tony Brennan in the beginning of the second half, the Blue and Gray were pos- 37 sessors of a 19-point lead, which Severn was never able to crack. With the traditional McDonogh game three weeks away, Gilman was trounced by a well- coordinated, strong team from City, who ruled the day and beat us by 26-0. The following week, we looked better, but were weak against Forest Parks passes, losing by 32-8. November 11, 1955 is a day that will long live in Gilmzm memories, for on that day the Blue and Gray scored the upset of the M.S.A. football season. Gilman broke into the score column on an end-run in the first quarter by Wilkie Wilkerson. The Clock ran out for the first half as Gilman was on the Farmers four- yard line. Trailing 76, a spirited Gilman team electrified everyone by scoring a TD in two minutes of the second half. Wilkie Wilkerson received the kickoff and romped sixty yards to the McDonogh 20, where Dave Dresser, fancy- stepped the remaining yardage for Gilmnn's sec- ond score. A few minutes later, Wilkerson was off again, scoring his second TD of the day and giving Gilman a 20-7 lead. Credit must be given to the entire team, all of whom contributed in making hnal success possible. In conclusion, no praise could be high enough for the tremendous job done by the coaching staff, headed by Messrs. Lorden, Finney, and Bishop, in molding a young, inexperienced squad into a top-notch football team. Fin! row: Barker, B., Manager; Hills; Woodward, WK; Towner; Morill; Lewin; Graybiel; Griswold, B.

J.V.F S EPTEMBER 29 saw the emergence of the Gilman J. V. Mr. Ticknefs charges made an inauspicious debut with a tough 6-2 defeat at the hands of a big Forest Park eleven. Exactly one week later, however, the J. V. showed their stuff by scoring a solid 26-7 victory over Severn in their first league encounter. A smooth offense directed by Quarter- back Danny Morrill, coupled with steady defen- sive play by the entire team, and a spectacular touchdown interception by Billy Woodward, ac- counted for the Blue and Gray triumph. On the following Thursday, the J. V. played a tough Loyola team. Gilman drew first blood as Danny Morrill, playing halfback, 0n the first play from scrimmage, raced 35 yards to set up Gilmanis first and only touchdown, scored by quarterback Bill Woodward. A few moments later, Woodward added the extra point to give the Gilmanites an early 70 lead. Gilmarfs joy was short-lived as Loyola bounced right back with seven points. From then on, the game was a defensive struggle, with Gilmanys t'forward wallf composed of Nice, Michaels, Graybiel, 39 THALL Johnson, Gardiner and Hogg, playing a key role in keeping Loyola scoreless for the rest of the day. The game ended in a 7-7 tie. The next two games with McDonogh and St. Paulys, respectively, proved to be lop-sided victories, Gilman being on the short end of a 54-0 defeat by McDonogh and on the favorable end of a 49-0 Victory over St. Pauls Six was the magic number for the Junior Varsity gridders in their final two games. Unfortunately, that iisix" represented the points they needed to come from behind as they dropped two close ones to Calvert Hall, 7-13, and St. Joe, 2-8 to dose out their season.

VARSITY BASKETBALL HIS yearts Varsity Basketball team, Which Mr. Robinson considered the best he has coached, ended the season with a 13-3 record and the Division 11 Championship. Captain George Boynton, ably backed by Bob Stone, Roggie Dankmeyer, Fred Glann, Tom Gar- rett, and Dave Dresser, led the team in setting an all-time Gilman scoring record by beating McDonogh, 105-54, February 17. Previously the team had overcome Talmudical, 99-56 and Park School, 70-36. Not all games were Characterized by such high scores. There were also many close games. On December 9, the Blue and Gray was just barely able to edge out Forest Park, 52-50, when Glann sank a last-second shot. After the vacation, the team took on Boys, Latin in the gym to win, 60-55, after a last-minute scoring surge by Dave Dresser. During the regular season, Poly and St. PauYs were the only teams that beat us, winning by scores of 55-46 and 60-45, re- spectively. On February 28, Gilman faced St. Joe, the Division I winners, for the private school cham- pionship. Playing at Homewood before a capacity crowd, the team lost, 76-69, when St. Joe pulled away in the last quarter. At the close of the season, the team elected Tom Garrett next yeafs captain.

Basketball team this year ended its season as perhaps the most successful team of the winter season. Having won all eight of its league games, the J. V. squad dropped the private school title to Calvert Hall in a well-contested game. Good teamwork, a lot of team spirit, and plenty of "hustle" Characterized the J. V. this year and brought to the team its 8-1 record. Returning to the otherwise green team were veterans Norris Cook, John Spilman, and John Kyle. The green- ness of the squad as a Whole made Coach Lorden's job a particularly tough one. The seasorfs record is a glowing tribute to the manner in which he handled this job. The team opened its league season by defeating Park, 4925, and the scores of each successive game showed Gilman the winner. This winning streak brought the team to a tie for the private school championship; the play-off with Calvert Hall, resulted in the J. st first league loss. Each game, including the last one, evinced the drive, the spirit, and the fine teamwork of a well organized J. V. team.

VAR ITY WH UNDER the fine tutelage and hard work of Mr. Russell, Mr. Finney, and Mr. Tickner, the wrestling team this year had a most successful season. The grapplcrs first went out to McDonogh, Where they had the closest meet of the year; Gilman emerged victorious, however, by an 18-12 score. The following week the wrestlers played host to a scrappy Patterson team. Although Pat- terson showed good competitive spirit, Gilman won 32-6. On Friday, January 27, the wrestlers showed an edge in condition over Southern and won the meet 28-9. City came to Gilman 011 February 2, and, although there were some close matches, Gilman won 27-8. The next week, Gil- man suffered its hrst defeat as Mervo thumped the wrestlers 20-14. Poly, the following week, gave tough battles in many of the weight classes, 45 IND but Gilman came thr0ugh With a 27-9 win. The fmal meet was at home with Mt. St. Joe. The St. Joe team was strong and showed a good deal of spirit, but a more experienced Gilman team won 37-3. On March second and third, the wrestling team participated in the annual Inter- scholastic Tournament, in which they took 29 points and second place.

VAR ITY IN Maryland, the arrival of spring is heralded by the appearance of lacrosse upon the sports scene. At Gilman, on March the seventh, out 1956 "Indians," coached by Mr. Chandlee and Mr. Bishop, held their first varsity practice. Only a sketchy prelude to the teams activities of this year's lacrosse season Can be given at this time. We may say, however, that the outlook for the lacrosse team is a promising one. Leading a formidable attack will be Captain George Boyn- ton, supported by Wilkie Wilkerson, Bruce Brian, Spence Everett, and George Barker. Midheld positions will be held by Roggie Dankmeyer, Chip Offutt, Ed Brown, and Sandy Dugan; while 47 dominating a strong defense will be two past masters at the art of goal tending, Dealy Nice and Tom Bowyer, aided by Frank Riggs, Graham Slaughter, Dick McCauley, Fred Wagner, and Pat Mundy.

This year, the Varsity bats- men, along with Coach Charlie Gamper, are looking with high hopes for a very successful season. Several promising candidates, along with nine returning iettermen from last year, brighten our prospects. The two new recruits slated for first string duties this year are Alan Yarbro, probable number one shortstop, and Dave Dresser, Who takes over Dave Bimesteferls post 215 catcher. The nine lettermen fill all the posts other than shortstop and catcher. On the mound, are hurlers Danny Morrill, Tom Carroll, and Dick Graham. At first base is Dave Sowell, at second, Captain Ronny Nelson, and at the hot corner is Norris Cook. In left, center, and right gardens, respec- tively, are John Kyle, Fred Glann, and Bob Stone. With the firm belief that we have the making of a bettervthan-average Gilman team, we antici- pate eagerly the beginning of the season. SCHEDULE, 1956 April 6 Forest Park ...............

THOSE Gilman students who think that a library is a place of peace and solitude are always some- what jolted on Monday afternoons, for on these afternoons, just a few yards below the library bookcases, stand some fifty-odd Gilmanites, rep- resenting every form in the school, and a physics teacher who doubles as a glee club director. Al- though the sounds that drift up from the Music Room arent all exactly sweet, they are, neverthe- less, noticeable. Once again this year, Mr. Porter, waving a somewhat worn baton ta converted slide rulQ has turned in another line job as Glee Club director. The first example of his handiwork was exhibited to the school on the weekend just prior to the Christmas holiday. The annual Christmas Concert was a huge success, as usual. The school UH heard such old favorites as 51701! Nigbl and Good King lVWZCEIldI, as well as Glm'y to God, from Handells Me.m'izzlj. The Whole club will appear again in a joint concert and dance With Roland Park Country School on April 21. Shaw's Liza fmze and Grieg's Lzznd-Sigbting Will be rendered at this concert. For the fourth straight year, Mr. Porter picked from his group his ten or eleven best voices and molded them into the select "Travelling Men." Along With sixth formers Wolf, Dankmeyer, Sowell, Stick, Folger, Thomas, Hopkins, and Nelson, the "Travelling Men" include fifth form- ers O'Donovan and Woodward, and one fourth former, Skip Frey. The group is on hand at sehool functions, such as the dances given by the fifth and sixth forms. 52 V , m ,,1 TRAVELLING MEN.

DHAMATI THIS Dramatic Association, busily working on plays during the major part of the school year, experienced an excellent year, although missing the opportunity to use the new auditorium until late spring. The season began with :1 number of Gilman boys participating in the Bryn Mawr production of Tbe Fzzr-Ojj Hilli. Following this event, the third and fourth forms presented an amusing show, ably directed by Mr. A. J. Downs; the line quality of George leZuizzgmlz Slepl Here indicated an excellent future for dramaties at Gilman. The main play, Kind Lady, was given in con- junction with Bryn Mawr. This drama, suspense- ful and engrossing, was praised highly by all who saw it under the direction of Mr. Armstrong, the llll actors, from comic Frank Deford t0 gallivanting John Lewin 21nd arch-fiends Penniman and Yaggy provided a most pleasant evening for all who were able to attend. The first and second forms, under the direction of Mr. Ackley, will present an enlightening eve- ning later this spring with the production of two plays, penned by the director, entitled Double Play. The fact that this play will be the first school function to he held in the auditorium makes us anticipate it with an unusual degree of interest. A series of one-aet plays are planned for late spring, but, at this time, the plans for them are somewhat nebulous. We shall always be grateful to Bryn Mawr for their generosity in permitting us to use their auditorium. 54 - . 7 km 922$ , m A B.; Edclcn, Serremrj: Offutt, N., Co-Cbuirmmz; XWatkins, Tremmer; Merrill, Co-Cbairmmz; Wurfield; Moss, R.; Meyers; Brown, S.

AH PAGU ATE last spring, the officers of the Areopagus and the Pnyx selected from the Fifth Form de- bating class those who were expected to carry on debating tradition at Gilman. The offlcers of the clubs were then elected by their respective mem- bers. Nick Pennimzm was chosen to head the Areopagus, with Roggie Dankmeyer and Duncan Yaggy as Vice-President and Secretary, respec- tively, and Ambler Moss, George Boynton, and Cotton Fite became the officers of the Pnyx. On the years program, there are included sev- eral debates between the two clubs, one of which has already taken place. On December 7, the question, "Resolved: that federal aid to education is desirable," resulted in a victory for the negative side, supported by the Pnyx. The two clubs join forces several times during the year against the debating teams of various schools. Debates were arranged with Roland Park Country School, St. James, and City. In the Roland Park debate on Friday, February 10, Mark Car- liner, Mert Fowlkes, Duncan Yaggy, and St. Clair Sullivan took the affirmative side of the question, TiResolved: that Congress should provide scholar- BAINU UH ship aid for needy but able students who desire college or university training? For the first time in several years, the Gilman team won. The Roland Park team had the best speaker, Linda Lucas; while Mark Carliner took second place. The remaining debates, with St. James and with City, will take place later in the year. 56 Sealed: Moss, A., Preyident; Stick, Serretm'y; Taze; Carliner, Glann; Eaton. PNYX IN April several members of the debating Clubs Will attend a tournament at Valley Forge Mili- tary Academy, where teams from a number of schools in Maryland, Delaware, and Pennsylvania 57 M., Vire-Pretiderzl. Standing: Boynton; Neesemann, F.; TING UH have been invited to participate. This is the hrst year that a Gilman team has been sent, and the experience should prove highly valuable and in- teresting. During the year, members of the two clubs have acted as presiding officers for the debates held by the Fifth Form debating classes, which are composed of boys who have taken the Fifth Form public speaking course and are interested in becoming next year's members of the Arco- pagus and the Pnyx. T0 culminate their yeafs activities, the two clubs oppose each other in the Final Debate early in May. The best debaters in each group are chosen to represent their respective sides, and the name of the winning team is inscribed on the Debating Cup, The topic, while not yet an- nounced, is usually concerned with a current question; last year the question "Resolved: that the United States should defend Quemoy 21nd Matsu" was the topic chosen. Debating, besides giving 21 good deal of enjoyment to the members of the Areopagus and the Pnyx, has given them valuable training for college and later life.

HHI TIAN THE Christian Association, headed by Pete Thomas and Cotton Fite, is enjoying one of its most successful years. To attract membership and also to set up a series of discussions, Tbe High WOW, a movie on prejudice, was presented at the first meeting. lATl During most of the full term the meetings of the association were devoted to discussions of the principles of Christianity. For these meetings, President Thomas was able to get several students from the Virginia Theological Seminary in Alex- andria, Virginia. Interest then turned to Christianity in business and profession. Dr. Sam McLanahan spoke on the effect of Christianity in medicine, and Mr. John Roszel showed how Christianity is 21 great help to him and many others in business. Having thus tried to fathom the heart of Christi- anity, the association then turned to Christianity in the world at large, on which talks were given by missionaries from many parts of the world. The Christian Association, through the work of its executives and members, has grown greatly in popularity during the past year. 53 Seated: Hopkins, 8., Trcvztrztrer; Dugan, Vire-Prejideizl; Yziggy, D., Preiidezlt; LICNair, Sem'emry.

Political Club, headed this year by Duncan Yaggy, has completed its fifth year. According to previous policy, most of the meetings of the Club were devoted to outside speakers. At differ- ent times throughout the year, Mr. Holmes Alex- under, closely connected with the club, came to Gilimm to lead various informal club discussions on current political affairs. On two or three occasions, movies were shown to the Club. In the fall, a movie was shown by Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Brent on the evacuation of the Tachen Islands off Formosa. The day after Cotton Fitels speech on Huey Long, the Political Club presented a picture on that politician called AH the King; M872. 59 Ill Maryland Congressman Devereux, noted for his record in the Pacilic as Brigadier-General, spoke to the club. Faculty member, Hans Mair, a citizen of Vienna, Austria, during World War II, spoke on the problems of Central Europe after the war. Mr. Key Murray, a veteran of Korea and :1 Gilnmn faculty member, showed some slides 011 Korea. In the middle of May, the Political Club will meet in a dismssion with the Christian Associa- tion. Elections for next years club officers Will be held in early May, and we hope that the oHicers will carry on the fine tradition of the club. Seated: Gluck; Bienemann, C.; Carozza; Constable, G.

IT HARY UH THIS past year, the Literary Club, although sometimes short of members, but never short of material, fared well under the leadership of president Nick Penniman, vice-president Ambler Moss, and secretary Frank Deford, with the pene- trative advice of the faculty adviser, Mr. Barker. The club was composed of a small nucleus of members, and its numerical attendance stayed consistent throughout the year. Besides the afore- mentioned officers, the members were: Francis Gluck, who is cynical but serious; Danny Morrill, who recently discovered within himself 21 fiair for poetry; George Constable, who possesses great potential in literary undertakings; Walter Biene- mann, who writes unusually well; and Carozza, who is always prolihc. The February issue of TIM Blue and the Gray was supplied with a number of well written gems, appearing in a variety of style, wit, and content. The Junior Literary Club, consisting of over forty members, aided a great deal in rounding out the school's literary publication. We wish to pay a sincere and heartfelt tribute to Mr. Barker. He assumes the entire responsi- bility for getting out The Blue and the Gray; he is always present to aid and advise a boy on his literary effort, and, although he is one of the busiest faculty advisers of any club, he always is able to find time to analyze and criticize 21 piece of writing in a superbly penetrating manner. It is well worth writing, if only to have it criticized by Mr. Barker. 60 Seated: Egerton, Vite-Preiridezzt; Slaughter, Prexidenl; Rose, Secretary.

PH GHAPHY THIS Photography Club, one of Gilman's most popular organizations, meets on alternate Tuesday nights at 7:30. The purpose of these meetings is to stimulate a genuine interest in photography and to improve individual techniques. The mem- bers are grateful to Mr. Udel, a well-known photographer, and to Mr. Reese, the Clust fac- ulty adviser, for their encouragement and helpful instruction in both the elementary and advaneed aspects of photography. In recent years, a fund has been established which enables the Club to purchase up-to-date equipment for use in the dark-room. These excellent facilities offered by the school combined with an opportunity to re- ceive expert training have attracted a sizeable number of members to the Photography Club. A display of pictures in the Winter Photo- graphic Contest exhibited the fine quality of the 61 Club's work. The highest award was won by Mac McLanahan for his picture entitled Gilmrm me- tern, which was published in 1799 Blue mzd the Gray, and which appears on page 4 of this book.

TH THIS purpose of the Gilman NEWS is to give the student body an interesting account of the activities of the school. Of course, the success of the NEWS depends directly upon the ability of its stafiC and the leader- ship of the editor. This year, under the editorship of St. Clair Sullivan, the NEWS continued its fme tradition and contributed greatly to the life of the school. The principal features of the NEWS were Frank Deford,s usual column of wit, which has become a favorite part of the paper during the last two years, and Dave Dresserts splendid sports commentaries. The talent of the reporting staff gave the artides a high level of merit. The financial end of the publication was ably manned by Business Manager Julian Jones. The new stafT, headed by Frank Deford, took over in February, and the promising talent of the staff indicates that it Will continue to hold the interest of the readers of the NEWS. 64 EDITORIAL BOARD Firil row: Moss, A., Edilm-in-Claief; Slaughter; Penni- mans Managing Edilor.

The Circus was a great success, falling short of last years record intake of $6,570 by only twenty-five dollars. The big inoney-makers were the second and fourth forms although all but the sixth form had a total intake of over a thousand dollars. The sixth formers, however, overcame their monetary dehcit by completely sweeping the pre-circus earn- ings category and amassing a total of two hundred and ninety-five points to win along with the second form an extra day of Christmas vacation. The lower three forms all had a larger total than the sixth form did, but under the new system of dividing the school into two groups the three lower forms in one and the three upper in the other, the sixth form won. There were several innovations in this year's Circus. The rides were inside the cage rather 69 Ill than by the path, and there were no fire-engine rides around the track. Having the rides inside not only made the crowd seem larger, thereby giving the Circus a more authentic air, but also kept the rides from being rained out. Not wish- ing to break the law, the school was forced to combine all of the usual raffles into one big raffle. This was of great benefit to the sixth form, who did not have a raffle of their own but were still permitted to sell tickets for the school rafHe. The big prize was a Model A Ford, which was won by Pete Gardiner's little brother. The cake stand in the Common Room and such perennial games as reverse skill, baseball and foot- ball tosses, and darts, not to mention hot-dogs and cotton candy, as always, were surrounded by shouting masses, which combined with the omni- present confetti to make this one of the best Circuses yet. FIFTH FORM DANCE COMMITTEE. Sealed: Riggs, R.; Garrett, T; Brown, 13.; Morrill. Slaizding: Hopkins, H.; Headley; Kyle; Mundy; Riggs, F. HAN As usual, the social events of the Gilman year were marked by enthusiasm, novel and effective decorations, and great enjoyment of those attend- ing. At the end of the football season, the Athletic Association held a dance in the Common Room. The school was in a festive spirit after our victory over McDonogh, and the A.A. Dance was a flne success. In mid-November, the Sixth Form repeated their idea of the previous year, the Jam Session. For this jazz festival, the dining room and the hallways were decorated in an Old New Orleans motif complete with street-signs and swinging bar- room doors. Rivers Chambers was on hand, play- ing dixieland jazz, and he gave renditions of all the favorite numbers of the audience, such as Bajin Street B11195, Sweet Georgia Brown, and iWay Down Yonder 1'72 New Orleam. Rivers made a return engagement at the Fifth Form Dance, traditionally held at the beginning of the Christmas holidays. As the date of the dance was slightly later this year, many of the Gilman graduates now at college appeared, and several of these said that it was the best dance they could remember at Gilman. The decorations showed a great amount of work by the committee and gave a Yuletide air to the occasion. The Travelling Men were on hand to give their best, and, as always, they were a great hit. The sixth form will divulge no secrets as to its program and decorations for the Sixth Form Dance this June, but under the leadership Of Cotton Fite, the Dance Committee has been work- ing steadily since mid-year exams; so, we know that their silence is not due to lack of ideas, but to a desire to surprise us with the novelty of this year's decorations. The Dance will be held in the gymnasium the night of graduation, and it promises to be a great event. SIXTH FORM DANCE COMMMITTEE.

TH THIS year marks the realization of the great project of the Alumni Association begun in 1951 7the new auditorium. The fund-raising cam- paign was led by the Alumni Association under the leadership of its past presidents, Mr. Nicholas Penniman, Mr. Graham Wood, Mr. Frederick Wagner, and Mr. Owen Duly. The student body, faculty, and parents contributed a great deal toward the fund, especially by means of the pro- ceeds of the annual Circus, which were larger during the past few years than at any other time in the schools history. Construction began in the spring of 1953, under the supervision of Mr. Este Fisher, the AUDH7HIUM architect, and Mr. John Krizek, who is acting as general contractor. On Monday, June 6th, just before the commencement ceremonies, the corner- stone was laid in the presence of many alumni, faculty, parents, students, and friends of the school. Since that date, work has progressed at a rapid rate and the building is now all but completed. To the many people who have helped to make it a reality, we are, indeed, grateful for this valuable and much-needed addition to the school. Our special thanks, however, go to the Alumni Association, which initiated and was most ma- terial in carrying out this project.

Academically, the class rates high, and their results on the achievement tests show that Mr. Offutt's statement: TlThe class is far and away the best Iacademicallyl ever to come from the Lower School or anywhere else," is not mere hyperbole. The class has also instituted a capable Student Government and has shown real leader- ship. In football, the Class team had a remarkable record, being undefeated, untied, and unscored 75 upon; they amassed a total of 122 points to their opponents' 0. The stars of the team were Timmy Schweizer, Tommy Caskey, and Harvey Stanley. In winter sports, the teams also excelled, Mac Bradford and Wilson Brown spurred the basket- ball team on to beat Calvert 38-17 and MeDonogh 38-10. Wrestlers Guy Fenwick, John Nixdorff, Berky Lambert, and Jay Sweeny did well in the YMCA tournament. This spring, Dave Edelen, Rod Fingles, and Jimmy Hill will be the top lacrossemen; while a strong baseball team has last year's stars john Armiger, Billy Schaffer, and John Townsend. 2: gii?

We welcome you into membership in The Gilman Alumni Asso- ciation. We feel that we too have kept pace With the School in its efforts and accomplishments. The Alumni Auditorium is a reality. We now take this opportunity to announce the next project of your Alumni Association and earnestly solicit your support and assistance. Our investigation has disclosed that the Unrestricted General Endow- ment Fund of Gilman School is now only approximately $35,000.00, an extremely low figure in comparison with that of schools similar to Gilman. In order to keep tuition low and make it possible to keep Mastersi salaries up, and in order to maintain facilities in keeping With the position of the School, the coming efforts of the Gilman Alumni Association Will be directed towards increasing the unrestricted funds of the school. THE GILMAN ALUMNI ASSOCIATION i g i 1 With the encouragement of the Board of Trustees we are sponsoring the GILMAN FUND as an Alumni Project. This fund will be a cumu- lative fundethat is, the interest will be ploughed back until the fund reaches a sizable amount. ents, and Friends can help: tn Make bequests to the GILMAN FUND. m Make outright gifts of cash or securities. m Insure a member of the Senior Class, naming the GILMAN FUND as the benehciary. Next fall, your Alumni Association plans to follow the lead of other educational institutions and inaugurate a plan of Annual Giving, l proceeds of Which will go directly into the GILMAN FUND. i A permanent record of donors will be kept, and there Will be an annual listing in the Alumni Bulletin. I i To insure Gilmarfs future, here are some of the ways Alumni, Par- Already this year your Alumni Association has made a contribution of $1,000.00 to the Fund from its savings account, and the Executive Committee of the Alumni Association has voted to contribute annually.
