CADET OFFICERS Back Row: Richner, C. Brown Sixth Row: Smith, Jones, V. Brown Fifth Row: Newlin, Lyons, Lydic, Newton, Wood, Molumphy, Anton, Smeader Fourth Row: Tevin, Diorio, Gorman, Pudimott, Morgon, Harbison, Walker, Lawson, Houghton Third Row: Botalsky, Hodgson, Worrell, Craun, Chadwick, Havira, Steinhoff Second Row: Carola, McGhee, Briggs, Corbin, Pelagatti, Steinhoff First Row: Flanagan, Boell, Stalford, York, Shelesky The Battalion was led this year by a competent staff with William Stalford, who worked constantly to better our military organization as Cadet Major. Captain of Recruits William Boell, Captain Inspector Joseph Flanagan, and Quartermaster Raymond Shelesky backed Major Stalford through a succesful year. Sergeant-Major Richard Houghton gave the orders for our snappy Color Guard assisted by Sergeant Quarter-Master Robert Harbison. Marching in front of their respective companies were Company-Commanders Donald McGhee, William Briggs, Carl Corbin, and Gus Pelagatti. The tension was high on the afternoon of January 13, as the first Competitive drill of the school year was held. Although every company gave a fine exhibition, there was a rearrangement of positions. In first came Co. B, followed by Co. D, Co. A, and Co. C. Founder ' s Day found the Battalion in close-order drill displaying its fine military qualities. The Echelon Platoon commanded by John D ' Alesandro thrilled Alumni and guests with an outstanding performance. With " Officers Center " , the battalion was commended by the distinguished guests of honor for a job well done. On June 8, competitive drill brought to an end the Friday afternoon drills for the school year 1955-56. We sincerely wish to thank Colonel Hamilton for working so hard to make the Battalion the fine organization that it is.

Class of June, 1956 First Row: Pelagatti, Dornbach, Silvono, Darling Second Row: Bertino, Nelson, Morgan, Hovira, Stalford, Batalsky Third Row: Smith, Flanagan, Taylor, Linthicum, Miller, Schoffstall, Walendziewicz Fourth Row : Corridoni, Worrell, Roach, Newlin, C. Brown, Walker, Wiggins, B. Lewis At the end of June, 1955, boy after boy tried his luck in gaining admission to the Glee Club. However, only a few made it. These, under the direction of Dr. Harry C. Banks, Jr., provided the student body with anthems on Sundays and during the Christmas Concert. Bob Newlin, a member of the Glee Club for two and a half years, presided over the group. Rich Linthicum, with his melodious voice , took on the job as Vice-President. The position of Secre¬ tary-Treasurer went to John Smith. Chuck Brown, the tall red-head with a deep voice, served as Li¬ brarian. The combined efforts of Bob Newlin, Dr. Banks, and the rest of the boys have made the Glee Club an outstanding organization in the College. STUDENT CENTER It is hard to thank Harry Price enough for the many hours he spent working assiduously in the Student Center. For more than half the year Harry had to act as bookkeeper, assistant manager, and manager—a heavy burden for anybody to carry. Despite these handicaps Harry steered the Center to another fine success. Working at his side were Bob Jones, Barry Lewis- and Ralph Bruno, who had the laborious jobs of counter heads All of them devoted many long hours keeping counters filled, workers in line, and customers happy. Martin Pustilnick also did a fine job as advertising manager. They deserve more praise than we can give them. Under Harry ' s leadership, plans were made to move the Center from Founder ' s Hall. This is the first major change proposed in a number of years. Sincere thanks are also extended to Mr. MacGregor, whose guidance and keen interest were in¬ valuable.

CONCERT BAND Members in " 1956 " First Row: Ronczka, Wybranski, Becker, Nelson, Stone Second Row: Corridoni, Schoffstall, Miller, Taylor Third Row: Walendziewicz, Breault, Costello, Pearson It will be no easy task for the future Concert Band of Girard to surpass the record established by our band under the leadership of Captain Ralph Becker. The Concert Band of ' 56 has left us something to be proud of. They have left a good impression. The memorable music of the Christmas Concert will live in our hearts and minds forever. The resounding notes of " Sleigh Ride " drifting over the chapel at Christmas time, the inspiration of " Washington Post " and " Semper Fidel is " over the drill field, the popular music of the Saturday morning quartets, the band sounding off, the pass in review, our national anthem—these are the memories of the Concert Band that the Class will carry with them after graduation. The band, however, could not have been a success without the capable and experienced hand of our good director, Mr, Robert Morrison. We are all deeply grateful to him for all he did to make it a success. The officers chosen to lead the band in the school year ' 55 and ' 56 were elected with great care and consideration. They were Captain Ralph Becker, first lieutenants, Frank Pearson and Harry Taylor; second lieutenants, William Stone, Bruce Nelson, Mark Miller, and Peter Cos¬ tello. The drill sergeant was Peter Corridoni; the drum sergeant, Ted Breault. The remaining ser¬ geants were Joe Ronczka, Gene Walendziewicz, Allan Schoffstall, and Stan Wybranski. To these officers goes the credit for a job well done.
