Her memory goes into the future with this Class Record. To GENEVIEVE GARRETSON, B.S.,A.M. Teacher WITH GREAT PLEASURE For a goodness surpassed only by his de¬ sire to serve the class in every way, and for an effort which has made our last two years at Girard a fond recollection, we say, " Thanks, Doc! " A TOofiet To MRS. GENEVIEVE GARRETSON DR. WILLIAM F. ZEIL MISS PAULINE RANCK MR. A. CARL PATTERSON MISS MIRIAM C. McGhee Throughout our final years at the College our hosts and hostesses have done much in developing a social poise for which we are grateful. With them we have laughed and enjoyed many a pleasant hour. We ' ll miss their guidance and friendship, and forever call them wonderful. THE CORINTHIAN | 4 }» January We feel unequal to the task of expressing our thoughts of you adequately at this time. We know you only through the medium of this great school and home which you have giv¬ en us. For more than a hun¬ dred years boys have entered Girard College as eager young children to be almost miracu¬ lously transformed into staunch and civic-minded men. These, your sons, were proud to call themselves Girardians, and we of the class of January 1950 vow to bear your name through life with the unquenchable fe¬ rocity of sterling pride. You, a Frenchman, came to this country in a troubled time You struggled for leadership as a merchant, mariner, bank¬ er, and innovator. Many others struggled to excel, too, and most fell by the wayside. Theirs were feeble hearts but yours STEPHEN GIRARD strong. For that reason we Founder respect your memory and cher¬ ish it above the recollections of any earthly joys we have experienced. We often think of Girard ' s 15,000 alumni and their achievements of which you would be justly proud. Nothing has the power to mitigate the grandeur of this living evidence of your supreme gift to society. Yes, Stephen Girard, you were a great and good man. Your memory will live forever in the hearts of your boys. It is they who know you best. Today our class graduates. Each will go his separate way. Some may not be heard from for years, but once a year at least we will return in spirit on Founder ' s Day to the Girard we love, our home; as brothers we ' ll walk the campus and meditate, thinking of those pleasant moments we know as " Hummers ' ' And then we ' ll pause at the base of your statue and gaze up into those gentle eyes and say a prayer for you. Thank you, Stephen Girard! Thank you for giving us a home, an education, a foundation of firm moral and mental ideals, and above all a life. Though some may wander many miles away, none shall forget you, sir, for we are proud that we are your foster sons. ' ' With deepest appreciation. THE CLASS OF JANUARY 1950 Dr. Zeil Dr. White The end of summer came none too early for our class. We were moving up to Allen Hall; something we hod waited a long time to do. Thrilled and anxious, we weren ' t quite sure what to expect, but soon realized that we were walking into something wonderful. Another newcomer to Allen is Dr. Zeil, one of our class hosts, who relieved Mr. Zarello as head housemaster of the building. His genuine interest in the affairs of the boys and his willingness to help out has won for him our lasting thanks and respect. " Doc ' s " diligence in planning our socials has given us many enjoyable moments. Aiding him are Dr. White and Mr. Grotz. What can we say about such a grand person as Dr. White, whose friendship was always ready when needed His room parties provided no end of fun. Though he helped out only on week-ends, Mr. Gratz has made our stay at Allen just that much more enjoyable. If anything has prepared us especially for what the future may hold, we feel it has been our life in Allen. So, as we bid a regretful farewell to Girard, there still lingers a cherished memory of that last term in dear old Allen Hall.

" Hefty, " it ' s difficult to soy goodbye. Dear Classmates: Can you remember when you first came into Girard? I can. We were youngsters then when Mom” left us at the gate. I am sure we all secretly cried and wished to go home. The years have passed and now we are ready to leave home again. This time there will be no mother at the gate. Instead we must bid faretvell to dear friends. We have passed from childhood into young manhood. As we remember our childhood joys in later years, linked with it will always be the name of some friend whom we grew up with in Girard. Then, as never before, everyone of us will know why we have loved our foster home with a love that can be duplicated in no other school. Maybe one reason is the beautiful Christ¬ mas Concert or the Christmas play in which we all had a part. It may be due to the apprecia¬ tions we have accumulated over the years. But for many of us it is the result of inspirations given us by our teachers. They taught us to build castles in the sky, to reach for the thing above us, and in the end to find happiness in accomplishment and in friendship. Some people may call us dreamers, but we shall always build these castles in the sky and fill them with love, purity, honesty, and respect for man. Build strong these structures and in some closet store your memories of Girard. Eventually our hair will turn gray and we shall grow old. The aspirations and ambitions of youth will not be dimmed for, as life advances, we shall discover new goals to conquer and fresh loyalties to embrace. Thanks, thanks, dear school, for such joys as these! And now as we leave, dear classmates, we can see that our home and heaerts are here. Until we die its flame will be kindled by its glorious name, Girard. Good-bye, dear school! Good-bye, dear friends! Sincerely, iuy DARROLD G. WILLIAMSON (Willy) R.D.l, Comp Hill, Pa.

Proficient in all other phases of gym work also, he has always been a high scorer. Glenn Gober specialized in the rings and side horse. His flawless execution of diffi¬ cult exercises on all apparatus made him indispensable to the team. Ron Lloyd brought glory to himself and Girard in the rope-climbing department. He set a new record of 5.2 seconds for the 25-foot rope climb. Ed Suarez traveled gracefully over the apparatus in a way that won points from the judges. Joe DiRenza, was out most of the season with a leg injury; his ab- sense was a loss to the gym team. Much of the credit for the high cal¬ ibre of these gymnasts must go to Coach A. Carl Patterson, whose untiring ef¬ forts to better the team are greatly appreciated. 1950 THE CORINTHIAN 37 }- JANUARY 1950 IN TRACK Under the expert coaching of Mr. Otto and his assistant, Mr. Reiff, we found this sport exciting. In the distances George Hopkins and Jud Meulstee gave o good account of themselves. Tom Keller ' s perseverance in the long run has also paid off in the big meets. In the sprints Darrold and Duaine Williamson tore up the cinders with their flying feet. Chalk up five more points for Girard! Doing the hurdles, Nick Rock has proven a valuable asset to the team. He holds the record for the 220 lows—all right in any league. John Furry soared to new heights in the pole vault, also doing the broad jump and high jump. Stretching their legs in the broad jump also were Ken Wilhelm, Jim Wagner, and Joe DiRenzo. Dan Dodd put the shot while " Ducky " Lightkep threw the discus. Others deserving of praise were George Dowden and Dick Hutchinson in the high jump, and Steve Barbera in the pole vault. JANUARY 1950 IN SWIMMING Williamson, Dar. Uplinger McMullin Williamson, Du. As a just reward for his perseverance and great prowess in the breast stroke " Mac " McMullen was elected captain of the team this year. " Mac " has shattered all " Hum " breaststroke records from the twenty-five yard to the hundred-yard swim. Once again we find Darrold and Duaine battling for supremacy. " Dar " has picked up three " G ' s " doing the backstroke and crawl. Duaine ' s breaststroke and crawl have earned for him two letters. THE CORINTHIAM January JANUARY 1950 IN SOCCER in me backtield tor our class was John " Irish " Kelly, star center-halfback, Jim Costello, captain and right halfback, and those terrific twins, Darrold and Duaine Williamson, two great fullbacks. Their defensive work in soccer was outstanding. On one of the strongest lines ever produced at Girard were Tony DeFrancisco and Joe Yates, noted for their scoring ability and fight. With substitutes like Joe D ' Ermilio, Dick Hutchinson, and Ed Jones on the line, and Dan Dodd, Jud Meulstee, Bob Speca, and Dean Uplinger in the backfield, the team was never lacking in reserves. Nor can we forget Jim Robinson, restricted from varsity sports, who put his heart into the managing of this great team. To coaches Wolstenholme and Otto we wish to express our sincere appre¬ ciation of all they have done in develop¬ ing these fine booters. Their under¬ standing and inspiration have carried the ball for Girard in no small way. JANUARY 1950 IN FENCING Jackson is the only member of Jan¬ uary ' 50 to lend his talent to the Fenc¬ ing Team. Tom gave an excellent ac¬ count of himself. In his four seasons with this sport he managed to walk off with two letters and a fine record in league meets. Thanks, Coach Rothberg! 1950 Jackson THE CORINTHIAN ■{59 ' r THE CORINTHIAN January JANUARY 1950 IN BASKETBALL With a season of experience under his belt John Kelly was once again the big gun for the courtmen. Others were Jim Costello, that fiery forward, and George Hopkins, the reliable guard. These two fighters were responsible for many o victory for the Steel and Garnet. Schiech served os o very able manager. THE COACHES Mr. Otto Mr. Wolstenholme Mr. Patterson Mr. Rothberg Mr. Severy It is Mr. Otto, Mr. Wolstenholme, Mr. Patterson, Mr. Severy, and Mr. Rothberg who hove pledged themselves to the developing of finer teams in the " Hum. " As we leave today, coaches, we want you to know that respect and gratitude for what you have accomplished will forever remain with us. -( 40 }- 1950 THE CORINTHIAN Socccdii, The music is sweet and low. Softly it floats over the still night air. The lights ore dim. As we slowly drift about the floor, we realize that our career at Girard is just about over. Yes, this is our Graduation Dance: our final salute to Girard, whose portals we entered nearly nine years ago and through which we shall pass for the last time on January 26. There are mixed looks of doubt, de¬ termination, and expectancy on the faces of our classmates; we do not see them. No, we see or hear little for our minds are lingering over our lives as " hummers. " Who can forget the 1-1 party? Those Hoop Relays, the Nail Driving Contest, and the ever popular Junk Race? Who can forget, as that eventful evening drew to a close, the inspiring message from Dr Melchior? One-two was next. Two-one, two-two; girls at last! Then came that long-awaited term. J-1, and with it Mr. Keenan ' s " Slide, close, slide " routine. After giving our fancy steps a last once-over, we hastened off to our J-1 dance with Joe D ' Ermilio acting as M.C. We were, of course, uncertain in our social graces. But time and the J-2 dance took care of that. Bob Parella supervised the tedious job of Master of Ceremonies. His touch added gaiety to a grand evening already full of fun. Under the name of the " Holly Hop " this dance marked a milestone in our social career. S-1 ! Seniors! Through the kind generosity of Mr. Wilson, we had our first house party. Following this came our S-1 dance with George Dowden acting os M.C. The term came to a close too quickly. Summer ended and along with this came our last term at Girard. " Moonlight Serenade " was the highlighting event of this term, opening the social season at Girard for the fall term of ' 49. George acted as M.C. again, performing even better than before. Two Allen Hall house parties followed. And now, as the strains of " Goodnight Sweetheart " magnify the stillness, we bid a fond farewell to Girard socials and their bubbling happiness. THE CORINTHIAN January iE iPrutiop (Enmmittpp On entering S-1 we recognized the capability of George Hopkins os a leader. Since then he has been our class president. His well-qualified colleagues were Darrold Williamson, Vice-President, John Schiech, Secretary, and Fred Petrone, who has served as Treasurer since our j-1 term. We were glad to share George Hopkins when the rest of the College found his influence extended beyond class limits. His worth was recognized by the entire school when they chose him to act as the first President of the Student Body in Girard ' s history. As usual George worked diligently and efficiently, and turned in a spotless record. Assisting George in his tremendous undertaking, we have the Williamson twins, Darrold and Duaine. Darrold, who was second to George in the election for the President of the Student Body, served admirably as Co-Chairman of the Cabinet. Duaine kept the new government on its toes as Co-Chairman of the Assembly. We are proud of the fine job these chosen leaders of January ' 50 have completed. THE CORINTHIAN {43K JANUARY 1950 IN THE NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY Saulsbery Lightkep Williamson, Dor. Hopkins Rock McMullin Furry Probably our most highly selective organization in the College is the National Honor Society. It claims only the most deserving boys—those who have met to a high degree the society ' s four requisites, Character, Scholarship, Leadership, and Service. We were well-represented with eight members, led by George Hopkins, this term ' s President, John Furry, Vice-President, and Harold Saulsbery, the Secretary. Others of our class who were inducted into the Society at the two previous elections were Richard Lightkep, Nicholas Rock, and Daniel Lynch, joining these fellows through this term ' s elections were i two other worthy classmates, Darrolci Williamson and James McMullen. We look upon these leaders as ones who have crossed a goal of which they must be proud. But this should only be the beginning—only a stepping stone to larger and more honorable positions in the world. We feel assured that these fellows will set their sights on the stars and give Girard ' s National Honor Society an even more amazing significance than it now boasts. DR. DAVID MclLHATTEN Sponsor THE CORINTHIAN January d44{- JANUARY 1950 IN GLEE CLUB The Glee Club, in which our class was well represented with twenty-eight mem¬ bers this term, enjoyed one of its best years in the history of vocal music in Girard. Its busy term was highlighted by the annual Christmas Concert, unsurpassed in beauty and originality. Do we take all the credit? That would be impossible. Only through the pains¬ taking efforts of our talented director. Dr. Horry C. Banks, and our excellent accom¬ panist, the charming Miss Juliet E. Stacks, could the Glee Club have accomplished what it did. These two talented people were ever ready to give their utmost in en¬ couragement and professional advice. Robert Speca served admirably as president of the " Gleekie. " Backed by Joe D ' Ermilio, vice-president, and Harold Soulsbery, John Furry, and Mike Pinto secretary, treasurer, and librarian respectively, he kept the morale of the Glee Club riding high. The inspiration and thrill one receives from ' There Is A Green Hill " and " Hymn of Freedom " cannot be easily ex¬ pressed. Never will we forget the rich experi¬ ence and inspiration we have gained in this or¬ ganization. MISS JULIET E. STACKS DR. HARRY C. BANKS Accompanist Vocal Music Director 1950 THE CORINTHIAN THE CORINTHIAN Janviary JANUARY 1950 IN THE BATTALION In the Battalion ' s task of turning raw recruits into polished cadets and molding stronghearted men to face life, a capable and active staff of leaders is absolutely necessary. We feel that our class has produced just that kind of leadership this term. Jim Costello was a natural for the highly responsible post of Cadet-Major. Aid¬ ing him on the staff was Captain of Recruits, Steve Barbera, who handled his job like an experienced soldier. In the companies we had Daniel Dodd captaining Company A, assisted bv Lieu¬ tenants Bob Criscuolo and Dan Jones. Giv¬ ing the orders for Company B was Captain Ron Lloyd with lieutenants Pat Feudo, Ed Suarez, and George Hopkins. Company C worked hard under the leadership of Cap¬ tain Glenn Gober and lieutenants Nick Rock and George Murray. Jim McMullen did a splendid job of leading Company D through a successful term. We wish to express our thanks to Colonel Hamilton for his willing advice and interest in developing this fine outfit. Also deserving of a word of appreciation is Mr. Jerre Gratz, who gave up some of his j,„., M. " Batty, " JANUARY 1950 IN THE BAND As another term draws to a close, we find that the Band has had a highly successful season. Its many concerts, parades, and trips on outside engagements have been whole-heartedly enjoyed by its members ond by those who were entertained. Much of the credit for our excellent band must go to Harold Saulsbery, the Band ' s capable leader. Aiding Captain Saulsbery Robert Speca and 2nd Lieutenant Daniel Lynch. Other officers were sergeants Gustavo DiLauro, Thomas Keller, Joseph Phillips, and Harry Floyd. The Bond will miss such young artists as Michael Pinto on the trumpet, Lightkep on the saxophone, Porella and Paulsen on the trombones. Furry on the bass fiddle, Petrone, Machowski, Thomp¬ son, ond Weaver on the clarinets, and Tony Pellegrino on the drums. The members of the musical organ¬ izations wish to express their deepest gratitude and sincere thanks to Dr. Ralph V. Horning and Mr. Robert W. Morrison for their patient guidance in helping them advance and for giving them a real ap¬ preciation of fine music. two alert assistants, 1st Lieutenant Director of Music THE CORINTHIAN 1950 JANUARY 1950 IN THE DRAMATIC CLUB The first Dramatic Club production in which our class took port was Victor Hugo ' s " Jean Valjean. " This year ' s President, Joe D ' Ermilio, Vice-President George Dowden, Secretary John Furry, Tony Pellegrino, Don Lynch, Howard Whitebred, and Ronald Podolsky, not quite ready for leading roles, displayed blooming talent in minor parts. In S-1 the Thespians put on one of the most successful plays in Girard ' s history, Goldsmith ' s " She Stoops to Conquer. " Among our representatives in this hilarious comedy were Tony " Muggins " Pellegrino, Daniel " Marlow " Lynch, George " Aminadab " Dowden and Joe " Stingo " D ' Ermilio. In June, 1949, an exceptionally fine group of actors graduated, giving our stars a chance to shine in the plays given in December 1949. The evening featured a highly dramatic story of Joan of Arc called " Maid of France. " Soaring to glory in this show was that un¬ beatable " dogger, " Joe D ' Ermilio as the English soldier. Bob Parella appeared in a minor role. The Christmas play, " The Boy Dave, " an Irish comedy, found o newcomer Joe Phillips, doing on A-1 job as Dave. Taking the part of Dave ' s guardian, an old man, was Dan Lynch who -did an excellent interpretation. Credit must surely go to such " behind the scenes " artists as electricians, Jackson, Cris- cuola, and Keller, prop-men DiLauro and Light- kep, artists and carpenters E. Jones, Rock, Kurtz, Baird, and DeFrancisco. To Mr. Henry V. Andrews, our mentor, we say " Thanks for the many joyful hours you have trained us in your organization. " MR. HENRY V. ANDREWS JANUARY 1950 IN PUBLICATIONS Girard ' s three publications, the Girard News, the Girard Magazine, and the Corinthian all reached new heights of achievement this term under the leadership of members of our class. THE GIRARD NEWS, which was fortunate in having as its Editor-in-chief the ca¬ pable and diligent worker Nick Rock, ranks with the most original and most interest¬ ing Girard newspaper so far printed in the College. Associate Editor George Hopkins, News Editor John Furry, Business Manager Dan Lynch, and columnists George Dowden, Fred Petrone, Bob Speca, and Har Saulsbery were valuable editors. Under the efficient and very able editorship of Dan Lynch, the GIRARD MAGA¬ ZINE this term collected laurels for achievement and excellence which future editors may wish to use. Howard Whitebred and George Dowden were the MAGAZINE ' S two associate editors, and they too should be congratulated for their part in making the MAGAZINE a great success. Eddie Jones served as secretary, while Reubin Podolsky was one of the active contributing editors. The CORINTHIAN ' S Editor-in-chief, Howard Whitebred and Thomas Keller, deserve the grateful thanks of all of us for the splendid class book which they have produced. In the difficult task of planning and editing this book, they were very ably assisted by five of our class ' best journalists: George Dowden, Daniel Lynch, Joseph D ' Ermilio, and Harold Saulsbery. Bob Parella did a fine job as photographer. We also wish to thonk Mr. Foust of the NEWS, Dr. Dunlap of the MAGAZINE and Dr. Haskell of the CORINTHIAN for the valuable aid they gave us this year. 1950 THE CORINTHIAN ■{49h JANUARY 1950 IN THE SWING BAND Furry D ' Ermilio DiLauro Floyd, H. Lightkep Borbero Jones, E. Speco Soulsbery Pinto No class organization has been more diligent than the Swing Band. Harold Saulsbery ' s constant effort and continual encouragement has produced one of Girard ' s better swing bands. Harold and his singing alto sax served two years in the saxophone section, during which he was quietly preparing himself for the leadership of the aggregation. Dick Lightkep and Eddie Jones capably filled in the saxophones, Harry Floyd, a two-year veteran and Gus DiLauro played sweet trombones at dances, and Mike Pinto filled out the brass section with a hot trumpet. Providing rhythm were John Furry on the bass fiddle and Tony Pellegrino on the drums. Steve Barbera, vocalist, did a very fine job. Bob Speco and Joe D ' Ermilio served as managers. The Band will always remember the nightly sessions after supper, the thrill of playing at a dance and watching the dancers enjoy their music. They can never forget the friendly snacks following a dance, and, above all, Harry Saulsbery ' s steady encouragement.

In years to come, when we see its majestic form, it will bring back memories of happy days. Great in symbolism and architecture, it has inspired many, but few comparatively have seen Founder ' s Hall through the thankful eyes of the Girardian. Once cold, and foreboding, this building welcomed us to Girard. As we leave for the last time, it is warm and pleasant, bidding us farewell and godspeed.

President of Girard College Over the fourteen years of his able leadership as President, Girard College has met its problems of education and management with renewed success.

THE CORINTHIAN 1950 Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. -Tennyso DEPARTMENT OF SECONDARY EDUCATION AND LIBRARIANS To the Class of June 195c: We are sorry to see you leave Girard College. So many of you young men have still so much to learn. For one thing you have to learn to apply in the outside world a lot of the principles which you have been learning in this inside world of Girard. To a cer¬ tain extent you will succeed in propor¬ tion to your success in here. Those who have acquired the art and pleasant habit of liking people, of getting along with people, of respecting and being re- speaed will fmd outsiders just as pleasant and as unpleasant, as reasonable and as unreasonable, as thoughtful and as thoughtless as those of us who work and dwell inside " the walls.” You also have the extremely difficult task of learning to live in a world whose sense of values has undergone a tremendous change in just the eighteen short years of your lifetime. You will have to learn to make your own personal adjustments to the something-for-noth’ng philosophy which has become a major component of your her¬ itage; to contribute your opinion, backed by your own action, toward a solution of racial problems, of class problems, and the problem of political and economic ideology. You have to learn to survive in a world still cowering under the turbulent shad- dow of the A-bomb cloud. You will have to fight—will the H-bomb on the draw¬ ing boards—for the survival of the ideas and the ideals, the truth and the beauty, which have been the inspiration and the strength of mankind since it recognized itself as civilized. Good luck, boys! A lot depends on your generation. You can lead well, follow well, or just fizzle. We’ll be watching and so will the world. Good Luck! W. B. WOLCOTT Director of Secondary Education 1950 THE CORINTHIAN ' IT!- StE p h E n Girard The name Stephen Girard implies wealth, splendor, generosity, and a love of mankind. It signifies ascent from poor boy to humanitarian and the foster-fathership of more than 15,000 orphans. As a banker, mer¬ chant, and mariner, Girard amassed a great fortune which he left for the care and education of poor, white, male orphans. Many have reaped the benefits of his generos¬ ity in the college which he founded. He was a lover of mankind. When the yellow fever epidemic broke out in Philadelphia, he remained with few indeed to help sufferers. He loved his country. While the United States was at war with England in 1812, and the outcome was in doubt, he gave of his fortune and subscribed heavily in buying bonds to assure victory. The spirit of Stephen Girard will live with us forever. j6A. vt- :An. a tt ' ?Kj .4Z fty - 3 1 fU 7n . z ra 7 , - a ?T! t z ' Tca ' t cx. cZ ' Tza iZ . o e3a.cu3£.

To you, Pete, our thanks comes from the heort Dear Classmates, It is hard for me to write this letter because I realize the time has come to say good-bye to Girard and, most of all, to you. We have grown through the years; yes, we have grown through xvhat seemed to be never-ending school days. I remem¬ ber those little brawls and happy times that have added their share to make our days in Girard full. It is impossible for me to say all I feel in my heart. As we leave to adapt ourselves to life outside the walls, let us not in our eagerness to fulfill our own ambitions forget the prin¬ ciples and ideals to which we have been so perfectly molded. The things that seemed hard to us at times during our journey through the " Hum” will he more fully prized as we go into the careers of life. Some of us may never see each other again, hut we shall never forget those faces that have made our life here so pleasant. It will be only natural to shed tears for that is a true sign of brotherhood. Classmates, I want to thank you for the honor that you have bestowed upon me as President, and for your helpful and generous cooperation in carrying out our activities together to a successful climax. In concluding, I would like to say, " May God bless each and every one of you, and may He also assure you of a suc¬ cessful and fruitful life.” Sincerely, Charles Peters COftlMTHIAM June ' 112 MARVIN WEISS (Cheese) Vice-Presl(dent 1-422 N Franklin Street, Philadelphia Bom: August 12, 1932 Course: Regular and Stenography Activities: American Legion Aword, 7B; Conference Committee, 2-1 to J-1; Athletic Council, 2-1, President of Closs, S-1; Vice-Presi¬ dent, j-2, S-2, Secretary of Student Cobinet, S-l; Student Council, 2-1; Chairmen of School Committee, S-l, Intramural Soccer Num¬ erals, J-1, S-l; Basketball, Softball, J-2; Manager of Con- ' y Trade, J-2; Magazine, 2-1 to S-2; Editor of Mogazine, S-2; Band, 1-1 to S-2; Lieutenant of Band, S-2; Notional Honor Society, J-2 to S-2; President of Notionol Honor Sixiety, S-2; President of Student Body, S-2; Gym Manager, S-2, Swing Band, J-2 to S-2.

Holding positions on the starting eleven were " Norms " Waite, left wing, " Bucky " Albright, inside right, Danny Stella, right wing, and " Harvey " Noughton, goal tender. These four members played impor¬ tant roles in helping our team reach the play-offs. " Bucky " and Danny received special distinction by being named to the All-Independent League Team. As for excellent reserves, the team was fortunate in having Nick Arcari, Bob Drawbaugh, Charlie Peters, " Yak " Yauchuczek, Earl Guiles, Ken Beynon, Tom Flynn, Ben Rosen, and Girard DiPietro. Serving in the capacity of assistant manager, Jerry Cusatis exhibited a store of growing energy. " Credit is given where credit is due, " so we wish to express our sincere appre¬ ciation to coaches Wolstenholme and Otto. 1950 THE CORINTHIAN ■ 33b JUNE 1950 IN GYMNASTICS The fine record of the gym team this year was due in no small port to the representatives of June ' 50 on the sr.uad. " Doug " Dougiollo, the team ' s captain, not only placed very well in the meets but also broke the rope¬ climbing record in his last season at the " Hum " bringing the mark down to a spectacular 4:9. John Allen and " Cabo " Jackman were the other two members of our class who strengthened the matmen in the lost two seasons. Marvin Weiss capably handled the difficult job of managing the squad during his senior year. As a sophomore, Bill Heider helped the team, too. Much credit goes to Mr. A. Carl Patterson, their coach, for coaching these gymnasts so expertly. JUNE 1950 IN SWIMMING A small but strong representation from our class bid for fame in the pool. The team ' s captain, Ed Beitel, brought home many laurels for the Girard tank¬ men while " lying down on the job " as chief backstroker. A member of the successful relay team, which included Ed Beitel, was Bob Gaughan, who has a crawl which is something to see. Much of the credit for the work of these two skillful swimmers goes to Mr. Frank Severy, a fine coach and a wonderful person. THE CORINTHIAN d34F JUNE 1950 IN BASEBALL Not just the desire to win boll gomes, but sincere cooperation and good team¬ work are what have made this year ' s baseball team outstanding. With fellows like " Bucky " Albright, Earl Guiles, and Tom Flynn so capably handling the hardest job of pitching, our team had to be exceptional. We all admired Co-captain " Trokes " Metroka who was receiving the ball as catcher. The entire infield was well covered by Charlie Peters at first base, Nick Arcari at the key sack. Captain Dan Stella at shortstop, and " Sups " Suppa ana " Champ " Yauchuczek controlling the hot corner. " Caks " Golias in left field and " Norms " Waite in center field were just as dependable at fielding as they were at batting. " Gers " Gerhart carried out the important job as manager of the team and was largely responsible for its success. The class is proud of Dan Stella and his men. liIMP IKI TPAn Co-captain " Fish " Beitel was one JUINt IVDU I IN IKALK e team ' s " sparkplugs " in putting the shot and managing the team. Bob Miller, Harry Naughton, Glen Davis, and " Caks " Golias all proved their strength behind the shot, too. The dis¬ cus was hurled by " Gebs " Gebelein Faithful practice paid off well for our three 100-yard dash men " Yak " Yau¬ chuczek, Ken Beynon and " Squirt " Beahm. Those flashing spikes flying low over the high hurdles were worn by " Yon " Yohey, and the high jump boys were " Pete " DiPietro and Bob Gaughan. Hank Smallacombe was one of the team ' s most dependable broad jumpers. " Kaybo " Jackman ' s late switch from the gym team to the pole vaulting for the track team was a gain for the cindermen. Bruce Spragg ' s managing kept the team on its toes. THE CORINTHIAN 35 ]- JUNE 1950 IN BASKETBALL What our class lacked in numbers on the basketball squad, we made up in quality. Captaining the teem was " Buzky " Albright with " Norms " Waite as Co- caotain. The fact that these two were chosen the best athletes of the c ' ass speaks for itself Charlie Peters ond " Kubs " Kopriv- nikor were two of the starters in the quintet. Contributing to the first team as the reliable substitutes were Dan Stella and " Yak " Yauchuezek Paul Metroka, who would have added much to the team, was physically unable to play. In our junior year Paul played first string and was expected to be the keystone of this year ' s team when he met with that unfor¬ tunate accident The task of m.anaging the team was carried out by Bob Miller, who could olways be depended upon for a fine showing. To the coach, Mr Wolstenholme, we convey our sincere thanks for the con¬ scientious labor he put into training our basketeers. JUNE 1950 !N FENCING Fencing is not to be passed by in our class since two fellows earned two letters each in it. Francis Koprivnikar won a " G " in his sophomore year and served as cap¬ tain in his third year in the High School. " Cheese ' s " skill with the foil saved many a meet for the " Hum. " His fin¬ esse was sorely missed in the lost sea¬ son when he retired from the strip to play basketball. Although Dave Pivar didn ' t have so much reach, he wos a man to be reckoned with in any match Dave ' s aggressive style marked every meet with thrills. As Co-captain in the ' 48- ' 49 season he brought home points as he did while acting as captain in his last year. Coach Benjamin Rothberg must be cited for his diligent work in making this team into an efficient one. THE COfUNTHIAM 4 36}- COACHES As our teams trot off the field, victorious and jubilant, the man to whom mo.t of the credit is due is usually an inconspicuous bystander—the coach We have been fortunate in having for coaches such able men as Mr. Severy, Mr. Groff, Mr. Wolstenholme, Mr. Patterson, Mr. Rothberg, and the head of our athletics, Mr. Otto. Mr. Severy took over the swimming team and his efforts have made it what is is today. Coach Groff was the mentor of our promising track team and Mr. Wolstenholme taught our ballplayers the ropes. Mr. Wolstenholme also served as both soccer and basketball coach very capably. Coach Patterson was the mentor who made the gym team a real winner. Mr. Rothberg coached our fencers to success. Until he was appointed Head of Athletics, Mr. Otto served as soccer coach. He is the man who molded the fabulously successful " Hum " soccer team. These men we have learned to love and respect, as the years go by we shall never cease to appreciate their efforts. THE CORINTHIAN d37 S ciaC Diary of a Hummer, Class of June i95o Friday, January 28, 1949: Our class took o vocation from exams tonight and were intro¬ duced to a new type of pas¬ time, dancing. Dancing is such sweet bliss even when you ' re not too good at it. The success of " Winter Serenade " is due to Jerry Cusatis ' timely sense of humor, and ab ' e leadership in " emceeing " the dance. Friday, May 6, 1949: Our sec- ST-TT - ond donee, " Springtime Dreams, " was not only a successful experience but also a sl mulating one. The Swing Band seemed in excellent form tonight. Bill Heider performed behind the " mike " as Master of Ceremonies. Friday, June 3, 1949: What an enjoyable way to collect funds for a worthy cause! Some fellows say that tonight ' s Caen dance was one of the best dances in the history of Girard ' s social program. Miss McGhee and Miss Frey, along with the " emcee, " Mr. Leydon, helped to make the affair the success of the year. Saturday, October 22, 1949: Seniors at last! But even with our recently acquired maturity we are stilhtripping on that " light, fantastic toe. " As we danced, we listened to Charlie Peters, who ably filled the job of M.C. Friday, December 3, 1949: Our first house party! This is what we ' ve been waiting for and with good reason. I found one fault with the party though; the time went too fast. Special thanks goes to Mr. Wilson and all the Bordeaux housemasters for a swell time. Saturday, March 11, 1950: Our last class dance, but it seemed that no one had that thought in mind. Everyone was too busy having a good time. Guiding " Musical Dreams " was witty Mike Mario. Saturday, April 22, 1950: " Canteen Capers " was the title of tonight ' s affair. Held in the Student Center, it was enjoyed by everyone, including the waiters. So many people had so much to do with the dance, room on these pages keeps me from listing them. Friday, April 28, 1950: Our first Allen Hall party, with others to come, was quite a " shindig. " Say, Doc, what ' s the recipe for that punch? It was darn good. Saturday, June 17, 1950: " Tears in parting make us forlorn. " This evening ' s Com¬ mencement Dance is the final treat in store for us on our social calendar. I have been saving my eulogy of certain people till now so that it will be worth all the more. I am speaking of that wonderful group of hosts and hostessses who have done so much for us in the last two years. Miss Deininger, Miss Rhodes, Dr. Haskell, and Mr. Sweigart. Miss McGhee ' s ceaseless efforts in our behalf will forever be appreciated too. THE CORINTHIAN -{ 38 } flcnvn!: •9,0 THE CORINTHIAN •{ 39 iE iprutiup (Enmmitlpp In J-2 we recognized the leadership, character, service, and sincere devotion that were so handsomely becoming to Charles Peters. Since then he served as Vice- President of the class in S-1, from which position he rose to become President of the Graduating Class. To assist him, we found Marvin Weiss in the Vice-President ' s spot, Lewis Benton ably handling the Secreterial duties, and Robert Owens as treasurer. Leading the new Student Go ernment, was Marvin Weiss as President and Charles Peters as Co-Chairrnan of the Cabinet They were assisted by Francis Koprivnikar, who served competently as Secretary, Earl Guiles, William Heider, and Girard Cusatis, who proved able as active members Fellows, you have completed a good job as leaders and rep resen tati es of the class. The Class of June 1950, is proud of you. THE CORIMTHIAM June d 40!“ i4l ,!- 1950 THE CORINTHIAN JUNE 1950 IN THE NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY Character, leadership, service, and scholarship are the four qualities desig¬ nated by the National Honor Society as the attributes of its members. Nine mem.- bers of our class were found to hove them. The President of this organization, Marvin Weiss, along with its Vice-Presi¬ dent, Edward Reynolds, and Robert Drawbaugh were the three men initiated into the society in the J-2 term. In S-1 two more members of June ' 50 were found worthv of membership in this national organization They are William J, Heider and William J Stratton, who graduated as Secretary of Gir¬ ard ' s chapter of the society. As we completed our careers at Girard, four more fellows were brought to the stage to re¬ ceive the pins which mark them as members of the society. These four boys were Earl K Guiles, Bruce C. Spragg, Allan L. Watkins, and Robert S. Owens. In future years these boys will be our best leaders and show that they were worthy of the honor of membership in the National Honor DR. DAVID MclLHATTEN Society. Sponsor JUNE 1950 IN THE DRAMATIC CLUB To dramatics our class contributed more thon an average number of boys. Serving as president of this organization was Anthony Pellegrino. Donald Eberhart and Bruce Spragg were Vice President and Secretary respectively. The first members of our class to make an appearance on the stage were Bill Heider, Ray Hill, and Emmett Mario, who made their debut in our junior year in " She Stoops to Conquer. " Bill Heider portrayed one of the main characters while Ray Hill and Emmett Mario held minor parts. Agoin in S-1 Bill had a leading role in " Maid of France. " Another top part went to Don Eberhart. In the other play of the same evening, ' The Boy Dave, " Ed Reynolds depicted a main character while Bob Draw- bough had a minor role. In the final ploy of our stay at Girard, " Cyrano de Bergerac, " the leading roles were filled by such prominent actors as Anthonv Pellegrino, Donald Eberhart, William Heider, Edward Reynolds, Allan Watkins, and Dick Gebelein. Assisting in the form of lesser roies were Ray Hill, Ronald Gerhart, and John Aller ' As we leave Girard, we know we shall never forget Mr. Andrews. Under his direction the toys hove produced great plays which will never be forgotten by his audiences. THE CORIMTHIAM June JUNE 1950 IN THE STUDENT CENTER We ore lusfly proud of the port that the six members of our doss hove ployed ■n the success of the Student Center during ,ts single yeor of existence They hove won the admiration of all who hove visited the store. Toking oil the heodoches of o Generol Monoger, «,e find thot short-fellow Gtrord Cusofis who hos done much in bringing the shop to present success The mony pleosures we now enjoy ore due to Jerry ' s iniotive. Jerry, if you ever own your own business, we hope it will be os successful os this one Assisting him was Art Gallagher, who has done his shore in managing the store and also the dances. Bernie Narolewski handled the business transactions and records, and Bill Heider acted as decoration manager. Many of you may have bought the Girard Calen¬ dar, but few of us realize it was designed by Bob Drawbaugh and Bill Heider. Mr. Caswell MacGregor represented the College in the management of the Center and gave much of his free time to supervising the work of the store. We wish to thank him for his interest and help in the project. Mr. Caswell E. MacGregor Sponsor THE CORINTHIAN 1950 JUNE 1950 IN THE BATTALION This term ' s combat team soon proved its ability to cooperate efficiently and pro¬ duce precision drills and splendid parades. Cadet Major " Kubs " Koprivnikar has every reason to feel proud of this organization judging from the large number of out¬ standing officers our class contributed. Captain-Adjutant Harry Naughton and Captain-Inspector Paul Metroka were in there at all times helping Colonel Hamilton and " Kubs " guide the battalion toward a successful ending. The boys inside this organization that really made it click as a team were Captains Dan Stella of Company B, Bob Drawbough of Company C, and Charlie Peters of Company D. Our fellow classmates who capably served as the officers closest to the men were lieutenants " Norms " Waite, " Yon " Yohey, Nicky Arcari, Bob Owens, and Lowell Jackman. The sturdy fellows supporting and guarding the symbol of the " Home of the Brave " were Sergeant-Major " Bucky " Albright, Sergeant - Quartermaster " Doug " Dougiallo, Color-Bearers Bob Miller ani Bob Gaughan, and all of the Color Guard. The tough job of training the raw tender¬ foot recruits fell to Lieutenants Art Gallagher, Bill Schoel, Tom Flynn, Bruce Spragg, and Recruit-Instructor " Pot " Profeto, A major portion of the success of this term ' s battalion certainly belongs to Colonel J. M. Hamilton and Master Sergeant J Gratz. We gladly take this opportunity to thank them for all they have done for us. THE CORINTHIAN JUNE 1950 IN THE BAND In the band many members of our class found an activity that was both fun and service. The trips to Atlantic City and New York, and the annual May Day con¬ certs at the Zoo stand out. Then came the drud¬ gery of practice which led to the roar of applause as we concluded a number. Such music! “Finale from the New World Symphony, " " Bolero, " and " Sequoia " are pieces we can never forget. George Golios served as leader during the past term and under him were Girard DiPietro, George Ounan, Marvin Weiss, and Allan Watkins. Our first Sergeant was Dave Pivor. Under these leaders we completed a highly successful term. The band ' s personnel was Marve Weiss, Al Watkins, and Benny Rosen, clarinets; George Ounan and George Go’ias, trumpets; Dave Pivar, flute; Pete DiPietro, drums; Eddie Otto, horn; Bill Heider, bassoon; Bill Hill_ bass fiddle; and lost but hardly least, Don Eberhart, tuba, Ed Reynolds was our capable drum major. To Dr. Horning, Mr. Morrison, and Mr. Frey, who developed in us what abilities we may possess, we say sincerely, " Thanks ' " Homing Head, Department of Music 1950 THE CORINTHIAN JUNE 1950 IN THE GLEE CLUB Our class found in the Glee Club on organization dedicated to helping us attain a mature appreciation of music. This it did, but at the same time it gave enjoyment to both members and audience. Along with the hard work of preparation, we found time to enjoy this work. We shall remember Dr. Harry Banks as the man who started us on our musical way. After he left on a leave of absence, we found in Dr. Ralph V. Horning, his successor, a new kind of leadership and inspiration. Under his tutelage we rose to new heights. To Miss Juliet C. Stacks, our wonderful accompanist, we owe a debt of gratitude. We cannot easily forget her quick sense of humor and her confidence in us. Our officers were responsible for keeping our enthusiasm and spirit high. With Allan L. Watkins as our President and George A. Golias as Vice-President, the Glee Club had real leadership. Other co¬ operating officers were Rq- mond Hill, Gerard DiPietro, and Edward Otto. These leaders, in¬ structors, and fine com¬ panions made the Glee Club one of our most en¬ joyable activities. Miss Juliet C. Stocks Accompanist THE CORINTHIAN -{46 Dr. Horry C. Bonks Director of Vocol Music June JUNE 1950 IN PUBLICATIONS As for literary and artistic talent, our class possessed more than its share. Three of the most capable editors-in-chief the school has had in years manned our three important school publications: William Heider, THE GIRARD NEWS, Marvin Weiss, THE GIRARD MAGAZINE, and Robert Owens, THE CORINTHIAN. Assisting William Heider on the GIRARD NEWS were Associate-Editor Robert Drawbaugh, News-Editor Edward Reynolds, Sports-Editor Daniel Stella, and the columnists, John Allen, Richard Gebelein, Girard DiPietro, and Edward Beitel. The positions of typist, business manager, and photographer were filled by Lewis Benton, Girard Cusatis, and Lowell Jackman. Marvin Weiss ' staff consisted of ossociate-editors Lewis Benton, Bruce Spragg, and David Pivar. Heading the art workers were Pasquale Profeto and Earl Guiles. As a result of the efforts of these competent staffs, the three publications stand as examples of the best in Girard ' s literary history. Without the guidance and assistance of the faculty sponsors and printing in¬ structors, producing these publications would have been impossible. Thank you, Mr. Foust, Dr. Dunlap, Dr. Haskell, Mr. Daffin, and Mr. Bonekemper. THE CORINTHIAN JUNE 1950 IN THE SWING BAND Starting this term with a new and inexperienced group, " Pete " DiPietro, with a lot of hard work and encouragement, worked up one of the finest bands of the past several years, Pete himself started out two and one-half years ago, and he has built his band on the experience of the five bands in which he has served. Marv Weiss and Al Watkins played in the sax section, and the two Georges, Golias and Ounan, lent their trumpets to the brass section. All these had had previous experience so they became the nucleus of the band. Joining the last term. Bill Hill thumped the bass notes on the fiddle and Ed Otro ably handled the vocals. Jack Allen and Ed Beitel served in the humble position of manager. To these members of the band who worked many long hours to play for our dances, the reward came in watching people enjoying themselves. To all who worked so hard " Thanks! Thanks very much! " THE CORINTHIAN 148 Our Life in Allen Hall This Allen life too soon did fly Post joys that ore still crystal clear; It ' ll linger through our long career For it the future ' ll bring o sigh. Those happy faces will linger still Though earthly pleasures moke them hie; We ' ll hush our sorrow with a sigh— " Farewell, dear temple on the hill! " Yes, it is hard for us to soy good-by forever to our happy life in Allen Hell after so thoroughly enjoying these lost six months. Although some of us will never again see it in reality, we ' ll always treasure it in memory. Its imprint upon our minds has been set like a heavy footstep in the sands of time. To Dr. Zeil, Dr. White, and Mr. Gratz, our guides and friends, we express our appreciation for a sincerity and true friendship which have made it hard indeed for us to say farewell. We ' ll never forget our after study parties in Dr. White ' s room, our house parties, the fun we had in the pool room, the daily morning inspection, the " temperamental " showers, and all the other little events which were a part of our routine. They were never too busy to greet each of us night and morning; these and other small courtesies have made our relationship intimate indeed. And now, dear Allen, highest in our hearts at Girard, we sadly but fondly bid you good-by. mo THE CORINTHIAN •{ 491 - 50 .. .not in the club .with a pug nose .standing still .afraid of water .in the " hum " .restricted from sports CusQtis .efficient .weighing 97 lbs. .os 0 square Dougiollo .a second Boris Karloff Drowbough .flunking Dunkle .without his shadow Eberhart.acting his age Flynn .an amateur Gallagher .doing something right Gaughon .serious Gebelein .without mung Gerhart .out of the cradle Golias .with a sense of humor Guiles .a hobo Halchak .being able to see Hallacher .without his muscles Heider .playing football Hill .a preacher Jackman .civilized Koprivnikar .going to a dance a Mr. Nobody THE COftIMTHIAM 52K Metroka . j .. a toe dancer .. a commercial student Narolewski .beyond imagination ' ° 9hton . his stories .with black hair .without Evelyn .teaching .not in love ' ' ® " ®9rino .telling a good joke .unpopular .doing manual labor . boy scout ' y ' o ' ds . chemist .pitching pennies .losing weight Smollocombe .without white socks Spragg .agreeable .with a white complexion Stratton .doing something .without hair Ursino.alone Waite .without wisecracks Watka .OS Hopalong Cassidy Watkins, A.bashful Watkins, L.on time at breakfast Weiss .with a one-point average Yauchuczek .lending money Yohey .head of the S.P.C.A.
