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.

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-
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.

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
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.

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-

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

6V 1TH the 1955-56 school term a little over
a week old, Head Coach Lorden presented his
1955 Varsity Football Team for inspection. 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
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-
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.

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,
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

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-
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

THE J V. 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.

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,
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.

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
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

IN the spring, a young manys fancy turns to
thoughts of baseball. This year, the Varsity bats-
men, along with Coach Charlie Gamper, are
looking with high hopes for a very successful
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.

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
heard such old favorites as 51701! Nigbl and Good

Handells Me.m'izzlj. The Whole club will appear
again in a joint concert and dance With Roland

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

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-
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.

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

nounced, is usually concerned with a current
question; last year the question "Resolved: that

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.

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.
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-
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.

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

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.

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
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

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.

AS in the past, this yearls Circus earnings went
into construction of the auditorium, which was
completed this spring. 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
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

As usual, the social events of the Gilman year
were marked by enthusiasm, novel and effective
decorations, and great enjoyment of those attend-
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
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.

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
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
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.

THIS yeafs Sixth Form has shown great talent
and versatility in many fields, and it Will un-
doubtedly make a deep and lasting impression on
Gilman in the next six years.
Academically, the class rates high, and their
results on the achievement tests show that Mr.

the best Iacademicallyl ever to come from the

Wishes to congratulate the Class of 1956 for its accomplishments and to
thank them for their part in making possible another successful school

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

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.

m Make outright gifts of cash or securities.

FUND as the benehciary.

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.

Committee of the Alumni Association has voted to contribute annually.
