r ' ■ ' . Vi li ) Kmrti Dear Mr. Girard: It was Mr. Thomas B. Reed who, at the fiftieth anniversary of Girard College, made the following statement about our founder, Stephen Girard. " Surely, if the immortal dead, serene with the wisdom of eternity, are not above all joy and pride, he must feel a thrill to know that no mariner or merchant ever sent forth a venture upon unknown seas which came hack with richer cargoes or in statelier ships.!’ Mr. Girard, our hopes and ambitions are the extension of this thought. It is because of your school that we now have what we need to make our venture into life. We are confident that we, like thousands of Girardians before us, shall obtain rich cargoes because of this school which your paternal gener¬ osity created. Your instruction, love, and care, sir, have enabled us to obtain a superior education. As our foster father, you have given our lives purpose and meaning. You stretched out your hands in kindness and have given us your loving protection. You have been known as a merchant, mariner, and humanitarian to many people for scores of years, but we, your foster sons, are proud members of your great family. Girard College is much more than a tangible structure. Your life and deeds aroused in it a spirit which will never die, a spirit which makes it an honor and a privilege to be a Girardian. The ending of this day will find us scattered in many directions, but nothing will dissolve the friend¬ ships and the love for this school which we have absorbed over a decade. Your name, Mr. Girard, we shall ever praise. We are your " sons of Girard. " Cfaii. of ig6i Priiitiilf ' Stdff Richard C. Fiore Allen T. W ilson Busiiiiss Munti ers Jay J. Lazar George J.

A Girardian grows up with I the beacon of the senior year to guide him. After ten long years we have fulfilled our hope; the dream is reality. And now we are looking back on this wonderful year, crowed with the good life, but far, far too brief. We can still feel the emotional tang of enjoying our first day as seniors and vividly recall the pride of walking down the Chapel aisle as upper classmen. The White Supper, our final Christmas Concert, the dramatic produc¬ tions, WGC, swimming, soccer, fencing contests, N.H.S. elections, dances, trips, and the Dynamics; College Boards, term papers, hours of study. Each of these and many more are the color and strength painted into the wonderful year. Now even walking to the dining room or to the shop has a deeper meaning. We are more aware of our Girard than ever before. Perhaps our Washington trip, when we left the school as a body for a few days, brought us an awareness of class spirit. It w ' as a senior highlight etched in our minds as a gift from our older brothers, the Alumni. We are, of course, sorry to give up our rooms, to leave our friends, our teachers and our home; the bells, the classes, and all that made this Hum life so good. Suddenly we know how much everyone has been giving us to make us ready for the commencement of the next step in living—jobs, military service, or college. Allen will soon be empty and waiting to be filled with another class of Stephen Girard’s senior sons. Embedded in our every action was the knowledge that we reflected the intrinsic meaning of a Girard education. As seniors and school leaders we set the standards in the classroom, in athletics, in social events, and in school life generally. With graduation at hand we are deeply conscious of the fact that we could have done more and better work. This is probably the apex of our senior learning. 8 Friiltiy Morniiifi Aisniihly — Duu berty, SheriJan, anj T ry Dcmomtratc Jitilo. Harriton Orchestra Entertains Hutniners WGC in action — Wilson. Lutestanski, anti Gilliam Hallowe ' en Entertainment, 1960 Dr. Vriedmann Conducting Wednesday Morning Chapel Seriice Assenililiess Assembly programs play a prominent part in Gir¬ ard lives. They have been a source of pleasure, infor¬ mation, a.nd instruction. In the " newbie” years we took them for granted. Back in the days of our Junior School careers, we participated in plays and auditorium pro¬ grams of all kinds. Now in our final year we are not only a part but we are the organizers. Our Chapel exercises on Wednesday mornings will have a lasting place in our memories. We shall recall Dr. Friedmann’s talks and realize how deep was their meaning. The variety and pleasure of the Friday auditorium programs have had special significance, for they gave us the opportunity to express our views on many sub¬ jects. The movies shown on Friday nights have been works of distinction. Who can forget those " Hum Thrill¬ ers.” WGC and WGC-FM have a glow of their own for they were our student-run productions. When we tuned in on Monday morning, we were brought up to date on our own interpretation of the latest Girard and World news. Our Saturday Concert Band music and the organ numbers of Mr. Anthony Falatico have given us an appreciation of music. Visiting musical organizations have added to this. Special lectures and outside speakers have stimu¬ lated our interest in many subjects. This multiplicity of assembly programs has been an effective part of growth. They have made us better Girardians and have added depth to our years at school. 9 Campus Quotes I think we had better hove a class meeting after chapel. This morning I shall puh-lay a puh-relude.

(2) participated in a variety of activities so I can be considered a well-balanced person? (3) developed to the point where I can live amicably with other people in my home, community, state, nation, and world? (4) learned hotv to use my leisure time profitably?

In return, we hope you tvill continue to be loyal to Girard and bring honor to the College as long as you live. Stephen Girard in his will stated: " I desire that by every proper means a pure attachment to our republican institutions, and to the sacred right of conscience, as guaranteed by our happy constitution, shall he formed and fostered in the minds of the scholars.’’ This is extremely important in these days of nuclear power. Are you a firm believer in ’’our republican institutions?” We hope you are. As you join the thousands of sons of Girard, remember we u’ill continue to be interested in you. Your successes u’ill be our successes. Your failures will be our failures. We have enjoyed tvorking ivith you. We wish you the best of luck in the future. Please feel free to come hack to visit us when you are in this part of the country. Sincerely, S. Student Body President PAUL EDWIN HILLIARD (PAUL) 1 5 3 Broad Street Stroudsburg, Pa. General and Carpentry Soccer, Wrestling, Baseball, Echelon, Glee Club, Drama tic Club, Student Body President, Stu¬ dent Council, World Affairs Council Paul had the confidence which made him one of our best athletes. He seemed to do everything easily. His leadership was fully recognized when he was elected Student Body President. He has earned a high place in our lives and our class. Dear Fellow Girardians: As you read this, Commencement for the Class of 1961 is only a few hours away. The walk down the aisle will be difficult for us, but it will begin a whole new part of our lives. Even though we are soon leaving, the memory of Girard will be with us always. We have tried to make our school a better place for you who will be taking our places. Suddenly we know how much more we could have done — we could have studied better; we could have done more for others; we could have been less critical and more constructive. You still have the chance to contribute; ours is nearly gone. To luild Girard you must send sound intelligent leaders to the Student Council who will support the principles and the people that would benefit the school in its entirety. You must face honestly the realities and find the truth, and then confidently and loyally live by it each day. If you do this, you will never be ashamed, and Girard, our home and school, will fnd proud recognition wherever it is known. There is an old saying that, " An institution is the lengthened shadow of a man. " Now at graduation tve fully realize and appreciate the meaning of those precious words because we are a part of Stephen Girard’s shadow. May the Almighty direct you in everything you do, so that you, too, may become a proud part of (his lengthening shadow. Sincerely yours. iPauf S. Ml ' laxd JOHN JOSEPH PETRONIS (JOHN) 2012 Margaret Avenue Scranton, Pa. Academic and Machine Shop Soccer, Basketball, Baseball, Glee Club, WGC, National Honor Society, Echelon, Student Coun¬ cil, World Affairs Council The key to John’s position as one of our most influential leaders was his confidence, his good judgment and his willingness to listen. He was also a key man in soccer, basketball, and baseball. He has served as a respected leader and has been a staunch friend. Dear Classmates ' . Today we walk down the chapel aisle for the last time; we graduate and leave behind us our school and our home. Ahead lies a new world of opportunities and challenges. We shall take with us the train¬ ing and knowledge absorbed on the athletic field and in the classrooms and the high ideals taught to us by everyone in the Girard family. I am convinced by your work and your interest in school life that each of you is eager to move in¬ to the competitive world awaiting us. I also know that deep in our hearts tve are very reluctant to sep¬ arate and go our individual ways after ten years together. Looking back I recall the difficulties and the glories we have shared and which have nourished our friendships. We must not forget one another nor the responsibilities we have as representatives of the Hum in college, in business, wherever we may be. For your friendships I am thankful and pray that the Lord will keep us safe on the journey we are about to begin. Your faith in me and your cooperation in our work have meant more than my words can express. My faith in you is and will be undeniable. Sincerely, Q- ofin Q..

At the time of their election to the co-editorship of the Corinthian, Horace Long and David Jamie¬ son thought their task would be the epitome of simplicity. Now, with the work completed, they recall the many exhaustive hours spent in its production, and they wonder how they could have been so naive. One great factor in lessening the burden, though, was the competence and dependability that the staflF of writers show ' ed in completing assignments. For this cooperation Robert Molz, Edw ' ard Poncavage, David Hoy, Thomas Hallam, James Hallam, and Harry Roth have earned their recognition. Special credit, of course, must be given to Mr. Caswell E. MacGregor, the faculty advisor, and Mr. M. Arnold Daffin, the faculty printing advisor. Mr. MacGregor’s incessant drive was responsible for keeping the writing and photographing schedule running smoothly, while Mr. Daffin’s expert help and advice, with invaluable assistance from Richard Fiore, the student printing advisor, gave this publication the appeal and attractiveness of an excellent layout. The necessary managerial w ' ork, which developed into a formidable task, was ably organized by Business Manager Jay Lazar and Assistant Business Mana¬ ger George Beckman. Hardly a day passed that one of them was not typing an article, arranging for a picture to be taken by the Corinthian photographers, James Evans and Harvey Yocom, or hurrying to complete some required work. Their contributions are commendable. Now you have the year book before you. We have tried to give you our best efforts in writing and in format, we have attempted to present the activities and sports as they actually were and to bring to mind familiar places and people in our Girard years. We hope that when you look at this Corinthian many years from now you will be able to say, " This is Girard College.” The Editors with Mr. Daffin 40 } ' ■ IpirsiiMl i 4 ' M Front Row — . Hallam, T.

Sheri,Ian A good newspaper must be based on the integrity of the printed word. The editors of The Girard News of 1960-61 have been guided by this principle. They have created a journal which has been an important and an intelligent medium of expression in our Girard life. The News has given us interesting and varied material with broader coverage than any previous issues. They have introduced, for example, articles on vital world news and have expanded the reporting on administrative actions. Responsible for these achievements were the Co-Editors-in-Chief James Hal¬ lam and Thomas Hallam. Working with them were Associate-Editor David Hoy, Sports Editor Horace Long, Distribution Manager Francis Lowery, Business Manager George Beckman and Printing Advisor Joseph Sheller. Mr. Arnold Daffin and Mr. Caswell MacGregor served as faculty sponsors. The reporters kept the readers informed on all areas of school life and strove to be impartial and objective; alumni achievements, class and club news, individual honors, academic information of all types, faculty and administrative data, and athletic and social events. Innovations this year included a World News col¬ umn, a Girardiana column, and a stronger emphasis on editorial features. No journalist will do as well as he wants to. The staff of this year’s publication have, however, never failed to contribute their best and devoted work to The Girard News. Eilitors with Mr. MacGregor [ 41 h drardian First row, left to right: £.

Fiore The Girardian has in the past presented interviews with some of America’s great literary figures: Rob¬ ert Frost, Pearl Buck, Cornelius Weygandt, and Robert Tristram Coffin. The staff of 1960-61 has not had the privilege of meeting such writers, but it has un der the editorship of David Hoy and George Berzkalns brought together the best of the creative writing of our students. Variety has been the keynote. Blank verse in French, sonnets, descriptive essays, short stories, all were the result of devoted efforts marked by imagination and observation. The editors George Berzkalns and David Hoy have endeavored to make their two issues representa¬ tive of the school and worthy of the traditions of our literary efforts. They have been assisted by Allen Wilson and Richard Fiore, the printing advisors. Of course, there were Mr. Arnold Daffin and Mr. Cas¬ well MacGregor as faculty sponsors to guide their efforts. The staff has been an interested and sincere group that has done its best to create a magazine in which we can take pride.This, we believe, has been accomplished. The Editors The Sponsors 4 42 )» In this year, 1960-1961, the Student Center will have completed a decade of service to hungry Hummers. After five beginning years in Founder’s Hall and the succeeding years in Lafayette, it is again operating in the place of its origin. Initiated under Dr. E. Newbold Cooper, it has spanned the years of the Class of ’6l, one academic Girard generation. Through the cooperative efforts of Mr. George H. Dunkle, the faculty sponsor, and Manager Wil¬ liam Westfall the present year has been profitable and prosperous. Capably working with them were Edward Poncavage, assistant manager; Barry Heilman, bookkeeper; John Perazzelli, secretary; and the numerous counter heads. Both Mothers’ Days and Founder’s Day have been improved and made more interesting by the contributions of the Center. Varsity Rats, Girard plates, and many other attractive souveniers continue to appeal to everyone interested in Girard. Innovations this year in¬ clude beanies for all groups, a movie party for the staff, and a dinner for past managers. The Student Center is distinguished by the fact that the staff receives no reward such as a letter a certificate, or a medal. Their motivation lies in the satisfaaion of doing a worthwhile job for its own sake. We are all deeply indebted to Mr. Dunkle, William Westfall, and the others for the many pleasant hours their work has made possible for us. Seniors relax at the store A 45 h WGi: Front Row: .

The Monday morning broadcasts gave us a good start each week with a well balanced program in¬ cluding news, sports, trends, weather, and humor. It was all made lively and interesting by the effective de¬ livery of Head Announcer Joe Wilson. The long hours of work by Director of Writers David Hoy and his assistant Robert Molz produced a well organized script with wide news coverage. We feel that these programs were the best of this type for a number of years. The classical music provided by WGC-FM every Thursday morning was a feature which started the day pleasantly. David Hoy, Mario DeMarco, and David Jamieson alternated as FM announcers. We must not forget the Annual Talent Show, a highl ght of the year which was organized and produced by WGC. We have all learned through our school radio that effective communication in its many forms is a vital part of our lives. So as script writers, announ.ers and listeners, we have benefirted. Mr. Henry V. Andrews who has sponsored and guided this activity since its inception is of course, the final rource of its successful growth. His work is continuous and our thanks are his WGC has we believe made a worthwhile, com . " nendable contribution to Girard life. ■•:{ 44 y lirsiiiisifi4 riiib First Row, left to right: M.

Andrews presented Scrooge, an adaptation from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. George Biddle played the lead role as the old miser who learned the true meaning of Christmas. Everyone agreed that George, besides doing a superb acting job, bore amazing resemblance to the Dickens character. In the spring two plays of great contrast were produced; Wings over Europe by Robert Nichols and Maurice Browne, and The Little Father of the Wilderness by Austin Strong and Lloyd Osbourne. The former is a story of a scientist who possesses a great secret which has the potentialities for world destruction, and the latter the tale of a little priest summoned to Versailles to decide a bet. George Berzkalns. Horace Long, Thomas and James Hallam, Edmund Basher, Joseph Wilson, Joe Dougherty, Allen Wilson, William Gilliam, Larry Sheridan, Frank Lowery. William Jervis, Robert Edgetton, Craig Rightmire, and Ray Try all performed well. The officers for the year were Horace Long, president; Allen Wilson, vice-president; and James Hallam, secretary-treasurer. These boys did much in bringing a sense of unity to the club, and their own acting ability was a great asset to the club. Thanks go to Mr. Andrews for the rich experience gained from working under him. His complete absorption in and devotion to the Thespians’ produc¬ tions will never be forgotten. 45 ] Battalion First Row, left to right: P. Hilliard, E. Smith, G.

Effectively supporting them in drilling and planning was the following group of officers: Captain of Recruits Gerald Wybranski, Captain Quartermaster Paul Hilliard, Captain Inspector Edward Smith, and Captain Adjutant Edward Holmstrom. The commanders of the individual companies were Captain George Berzkalns of Company A, Captain John Perazzelli of Company B, Captain Jay Silberman of Company C, and Captain Robert Petrick of Company D. Their energetic and loyal work molded the morale and discipline of their units. The months of drilling, the pride in accomplishmant, and the devotion to sound standards was conspicuously evident in the excellent performances during competitive drill and on Founder’s Day. All members of the Battalion of 1960-61 can look back on their unit with satisfaction in the assurance that they have lived up to the tradi¬ tions which have been established through the years.

HiJsMe, C. Hoffnagle, J. Leftwicb The Concert Band was fortunate this year in having twenty experienced seniors and the capable leadership of Captain Ken Hippie as the nucleus of the organization. Our Director of Music, Mr. Robert W. Morrison was unfortun¬ ately absent because of sickness for some weeks previous to the Christmas Concert. During this time his work was carried on by Mr. Frederick Fink. Perhaps in recognition of Mr. Morrison’s devotion to the Band the boys worked and practiced harder than they would have if he had been there, to make the concert a tribute to him. We believe that it was an outstanding performance. Our exchange concerts in recent years included the Hershey School, Olney High, and this year Harriton High. These bands had the opportunity for com¬ parison to their mutual satisfaction and pleasure. Saturday morning concerts played a major role in our development. There were also the annual concerts at the Zoo with all its excitement, and the trip on the Delaware River to celebrate National Maritime Day. The music played included Wagner’s Die Aleistersinger, Folk Songs from Somerset, Sibelius’ Finlandia, and selections from a number of Broadway Musicals. The experience of being a member of the Band is invaluable. The patience, understanding, and discipline required of each boy to create, under Mr. Morrison’s direction, a beautiful interpretation of Finlandia. for example, developed an appreciation of music which can be learned in no other way. For those of us who have been in the Concert Band there are new meanings to music which will add to the pleasures of our lives. A 47 ] Glee Club I-ront Row — T. Hallam, W. Westfall, W. Dougherty, D.

Members of the Glee Club will find with time that the beginning of the real meaning of music originated in their association with Mr. Anthony Falatico, their director, and his assist¬ ant, Miss Juliet Stacks, whose patience and enthusiasm were the source of our pleasure. They were commendably supported by the officers of the Club, John J. Perazzelli, president; Allen Wilson, vice-president; William Westfall, secretary; and Thomas and James Hallam, librarians. The highlight of the year was, of course, the annual Christmas Concert, which they sang to a small audience because of the heavy snowfall. Despite this, the performance was one of the best in recent years. The cantata. When the Christ Child Came, was very impressive, and the haunting beauty of the final. Goodnight and Christmas Prayer, was the climax of a perfect Chistmas musical evening. Throughout the year preparation for Sunday Chapel Services is continuous. Then the special concerts demanded concentrated eex peration. The spring concerts included the Founder’s Day pro¬ gram the program at the Radnor Junior High School, and the regular Spring Concert. Among the works presented were; excerpts from Aida, Acts I and 11, To M tsic, and The Year ' s at the Spring. Our guest soloist in the Spring Concert was lovely Miss Winifred Dettore.

Broil An important question in any school is how much faculty supervision should be maintained over the student activities. Girard’s activities run the gamut of degree of adult influence, but perhaps the most exclusively student-controlled group and yet the one with the most widespread reputation is the Swing Band. Organizing under presages of future difficulty, the " Dynamics” and their captain, David Jamieson, had to assemble almost an entirely new band, having only three experienced men from the previous group. The saxophone section, converting from clarinets, had to develop immediately into a satisfactory team and this they did with remarkable success. Practicing night after night, the Dynamics finally achieved the degree of competency necessary to play such numbers as their theme song. Mood Indigo, and their innovations which included Theme from Air. Lucky and the Peanut Vendor. Not only did they highlight our class and Cadet dances, but also they journeyed to play for Harriton, Woodstown, and Upper Darby High Schools. They won very favorable comments when they played on the Maritime Day Cruise. Experience must guide youth, however, and even though the Dynamics achieved their skill on their own, they gratefully thank Miss Miriam McGhee and Mr. and Mrs. Charles T. Cunningham, their sponsors, who were especially helpful at the Swing Band’s own dances. LeRoy and the Rockin’ Fellas G. Biddle, K. Hippie, W. Dougherty, J. Cupani, and L.

This is the pledge of the National Honor Society into whose ranks are elected those boys, who, in the eyes of the faculty and the contemporary school members of the society, best exhibit those qualities of scholarship citizenship, leadership, and service. This is an organization of which Girard can truly be proud, for it upholds the ideals of Stephen Girard. Each year two important auditorium programs, one in the fall and the other in the spring, are held. It is at these specified times that boys are inducted into the National Honor Society. The gold pin and certificate they receive are the symbols of a mature individual serving Girard to the best of his ability. Those boys chosen for this honor in the spring of I960 were John J. Petronis, Robert J. Petrick, David C. Hoy, Thomas H. Hallam, and James R. Hallam. The officers elected from this group were John J. Petronis, President; David C. Hoy, Vice-President; and James R. Hallam, Secretary. In the fall of I960 these boys were inducted into this honorary organization; David J. Jamieson, Mario A. DeMarco, George A. Hill, John J. Perazzelli, Charles R. Dooley, and Darrow S.

Schoell who was our faculty sponsor. First Row, left to right: R. Scalui, V. Westfall, J. Hallam, Mr. H. Holman, P. Hilliard Second Row: . Bradley, N. Saracini, ]. Calogero, B. Gordon, J. Petronis Third Row: . Lynch, J. Flaherty, E. Flolmstrom, E. Basher The Student Council of 1960-61 has been a working unit in a democratic way of life. Their work has been a positive contribution to our education. There ’ere long hours spent in meetings discussing the pros and cons of many suggestions, giv¬ ing every representative his right to present the request or the point of view ' of his class. It served as the very practical channel through which the student could officially present new thinking to the faculty. Through its work the no-study privilege on Saturday mornings was granted to seniors on the honor roll, and all students were given identification cards for school discounts and general identification. The Council was sponsored by Mr. Harold Holman w ' ho worked hard to strengthen the organization. The officers were as follows: Paul Hilliard; Student Body President; Edmund Basher, Vice-President; John Bradley, Recording Secretary; and Bill Westfall, Correspondent. Together with the other members they helped to make the Council a tightly-knit form of student government which contributed to improving our school and our lives in it. The theme of the Council this year was to develop better school morale and better student - faculty relations. Committees w ' ere organized to formulate judgments on questions under discussion. Council members did their best to create a greater unity of purpose in all the areas of school life. The retiring members of the Council have worked with the belief that their efforts have been for an improved Girard. We feel sure that what they have done is w’orth- w ' hile. Mr. Donecker discuss council business. 51 j Photography Cluh First row: left to right — . Evans, R. Edgerton, H. Yocom Second row. left to right — M. DeMarco, Mr. Pease, J. Cecot Under the direction of Mr. Perley Pease the Photo¬ graphy Club has as usual been one of the most industrious activities on the campus. Their contribution to our school publications is real and invaluable. Without them our appeal to our readers would be academic. A look at your Corinthian should make you grateful for all they have done. The Nem, without their help would be bare indeed. In an unobtrusive fashion they have with their pictures given life to our memories in the future. This year the active members were James Evans president; Harvey Yocom, secretary-treasurer; Mario DeMarco, Robert Edgerton, Mark Kenyon, Joseph Cecot, Robert Molz, and Robert Pirollo. We offer to all of them and to Mr. Pease our sin¬ cere thanks for a job well done. Rifle Club Since its beginning in 1954, the Girard Rifle Club has been an active member of the National Rifle Associa¬ tion of America, which is devoted to creating a respect for rifles and proficiency in their use. This year, the 1960- 6l club, under the sponsorship of Mr. Roy Glerum, has carried out this philosophy and enjoyed it. In the fall of the year elections were held and the following officers were chosen: Charles Reitano, president, Donald Debus, vice-president, Walter Brod, secretary and executive officer, Stephen Haigler, senior range officer, and Eric Knight, junior range officer. All members have attained the rank of marksman. Stephen Haigler, Charles Reitano, Walter Brod, and Jerome Foley have risen to the rank of sharpshooter and beyond. Shooting in the postal matches, a monthly competi¬ tion by mail, acquired for the " dead eyes” in the club much experience as well as a great deal of enjoyment. Front Row — C. Reitano, W. Prod, S.

Pease, Mr. Richard Stewart Second Row: Dr. William F. 2eil, Dr. James D. White, Mr. John A. Lander This has been our year in Utopia. For eight long years we have been coming up the " road” from the Junior School. There have been many changes—we have been students under three Girard presidents, Dr. Merle Odgers, Dr. E. Newbold Cooper and Dr. Karl R. Friedmann.The old landmarksLafayette and Good Friends have been torn down—but the magnetism and glory of being a senior, living in Allen Hall merely intensified each yeat, to quote our Hamlet " it was a consummation devoutly to be” sought. The first school night in September with no rows of beds and lockers, but the privacy of a room and the good company of our roommates; the no-pass and dating privileges; then later the house parties and the Washington Trip, College Boards and college acceptance. These were some of the many lights and shadows and incidents that made the year the best we have ever known, that created a spirit which only a brother Girardian could understand. With the friendly, firm, and generally patient help and guidance of Dr. William F. Zeil, Dr. James D. White, Mr. Perley H. Pease and Mr. John A. Lander we also had a responsible job to do. We matured and found new satisfaction in our endeavors. Our friendships deepened and we found new meaning in our Hum lives. We shall leave Allen and Girard and shall take with us memories of this wonderful year which will be indelibly etched in our memories and in our hearts. 53 Social Life It was in the spring of our sophomore year 1959 that we began the serious work of polishing our social graces. The memories of ten weeks of dancing lessons in the little little gym are still vivid—turn, dip, glide and count. Then we took the plunge right into the middle of our first coke and pretzel party, where we mingled with fearful pleasure with girls. From there we moved ahead rapidly, and by the fall of our junior year we were neophyte Romeos. Some of us found our Juliets on Miss McGhee’s list of blind dates. Our first junior dance was a wonderful blending of the famous Girard punch, a pretty girl, and our newly acquired dancing skill. Later that year we rose to even greater social heights when as officers of the Battalion wdth uni¬ forms pressed and gleaming, buttons shining, and shoul¬ ders erect we saw how impressed our " dates” were at this, our initial formal. None of us will forget those wonder¬ ful moments. This was also the year when we came to know the worth of Lankenau, Ellis, and Carson Valley Schools, not as institutions of academic instruction, but at the residences of beautiful girls. The last was, of course, the best—our sparkling senior year: two senior House Parties, the Officers’ Hops, the Canteen Dances, the Commencement Dance—these and other parties brightened the days and lightened our hearts. And naturally this was the year when some of us not only were going steady but thought that we had found the " one and only.” Without the social becons to light us— well, school life would have been heavy. There will be times in the future when we shall look back to the dances in the Founder’s Hall ballroom with yearning, or with amusement to the " turn, slip, glide, and count " sessions.” There will be odier girls and parties, but there will no " first, fine, careless rapture” such as we knew at coke parties. We can’t recapture but we can remember and those memories will be " roses in December.” We extend our appreciation to Dr. and Mrs. Carl C. Fischer and to Mr. and Mrs. Caswell E. MacGregor who were our class hosts and hostesses. Miss Miriam McGhee particularly has our heartfelt thanks. Through her patient, persistent efforts we have learned the social amenities and the pleasures behind them. 54 y First row: . Wilson, J. Pctronis Second Row, Left to Right: R. Flaherty, R.

This year, however, tw ' elve lettermen returned in the fall to carry on with the Hum’s favor¬ ite sport, soccer. Led by the very capable co-captains, John Petronis and Joe Wilson, the team achieved a splendid record of nine wins, one loss, and three ties. Three of the season’s games that will long be re¬ membered are the 0-0 tie with Westtown, for the championship of the independent schools, the 2-1 victory over the undefeated Ridley Township team, and the only loss of the season to Navy, 6-2. High scorers during the season were Joe Wilson, who came within two goals of the sixteen-goal record set by Tom Flanagan during the 1959 season, and George Berzkalns who had seven tallies to his credit. The team had a fine record of scoring this year as they tabbed thirty-six goals, while letting only fourteen slip into the home net. Because of their persistence, fine sportsmanship, and undaunted spirit Joe Wilson, Paul Hilliard, John Caurllo, and Eugene Cybulski received honorable men¬ tion on the All-Independent team. Joe Wilson and John Petronis again took honors by making the All-Scholas¬ tic team, while Paul Hilliard won honorable mention. A good season is the result of hard work and good coaching. Coach Wolstenholme has given us both. We express our thanks. A 56 ] First Row, left to right: Cal tain . Pcrazzclli, Mr. Kresshr, L. Rinlyaiisky Second Row; F. Broun, K. Hippie, E. Smith Cross Country This year, after a two-season trial period, cross country competition was given official recognition as a Girard sport. With only five on the squad, it is a most exclu¬ sive group and naturally so. The tough program of train¬ ing— two miles of grueling running at a fast clip throughout the first three months of the school year in all kinds of weather — eliminated the armchair athletes. For the most part, the boys, led by Captain John Perazzelli and occasionally advised by their faculty spon¬ sor, Mr. Raymond Kressler, coached and trained them¬ selves. This team is the only coachless sport in the Col¬ lege. Of the three meets during the long season the har¬ riers lost two by a heartbreaking one point and captured one from Germantown Friends. Kenneth Hippie and Edward Smith did commendable work in building this team. The members of this group can look back with satisfaction on this the initial year of cross country as an offeial sport. They have paved the way for the de¬ velopment of what can be the best team in this area. F. Broun Capt.

This was not brought about by chance, but rather by energetic weeks of hard work and long hours of practice. The record is a creditable 10-3, and every point was well-earned. The team had much in its favor this year; high morale, good leadership under Captain John Brad¬ ley, confidence in themselves and in Coach Richard Foley, and above all an eagerness to play. There were many high points of the season, perhaps the most memorable of which was their defeat by Temple High School. Girard lost by ten points to this exceptionally capable team, which had pre¬ viously defeated the city champs, John Bartram, by twenty points. The leading rebounders this year were John Petronis and Ed Holmstrom. Leading in assists was John Bradley. The high scorers were John Petronis with 152, John Bradley with 150, and Rich Fla¬ herty with 101. There was, though, something much more important about our basketballers than wins and Josses or total points scored. This was a quality which is inherent in every Girard team: good sportsmanship. When Coach Richard Foley sent five men onto the court, they played hard, and they played to win. But when the contest was over, whether they had won or lost, every player had exhibited good sportsman¬ ship. I-ront Row, left to right: B. Gordon, j. Dnily, J. Wilson, }. Bradley, K. Flaherty, R.

Under the leadership of Captain Charles Dooley the team lost only one meet — a foil match with Perkiomen. One of their strongest opponents was the team from Thomas Edison High School. Indi¬ vidual members of this team had often opposed Girard in the Amateur Fencing League of America. Definitely, the most exciting contest was with the University of Pennsylvania freshmen. The Hum swords¬ men captured both these meets. Individual accomplishments in the AFLA tournament also brightened the team s record. Captain Dooley took a third in the " prep” sabre and Bob Paul placed third in epee. Against heavy competition Mike Lutestanski took third in the foil. Finally in the Yale Trophy contest D x)ley won four out of five bouts for a first, wdiile David Hoy and Mike Lutestanski took second places, to capture the Trophy from Central High, the city cham¬ pions, by one point. The Girard fencers have indeed earned a prominent place in 1960-61 sports scene. Left to right — A. Sfockburger, R. Miller, M. Lutestanski, C. Dooley, E. Poncaiage, R. Paul, . Register, . Raibley, f.

Begosh Wrestling Led by Cc-Captains Joseph Dougherty and Thomas Hallam, the wrestlers of 1960-61 accumulated a substantial record of nine wins and three losses. Coaches David C. Wolstenholme and Frank Sabol feel that a never-say-die spirit was an important part of this accomplishment. Their first major success was a third place in tlte Haverford College Christmas Tournament. Thomas Hallam and Alfred DiTizio captured first-place gold medals. James Hallam and Edward Smith gar¬ nered seconds. The highlight of the year was the second place in the Episcopal Invitational Tournament. The Girardians set a record with ten straight pins in the preliminaries. In the finals Joseph Dougherty and James Hallam came away with divisional titles. Other point winners were Jim Braun, Tom Hallam, A1 DiTizio, Ed Smith, John Maleno, and Larry Sheridan. The best individual record of the season was turned in by Captain Dougherty with 10 wins and 2 losses. Tom Buchman, Jim and Tom Hallam, and Ed Smith won 9 each. During the season the team piled up 386 points to their opponents’ 200. There were 56 pins, 34 decisions, 6 forfeits, 3 ties and 48 losses.

They never ceased to give their best efforts; morale has been continuously at a high level; imd timewise there have been some exceptional performances. Two team members lowered three long-standing records. James Hartman, a sophomore, broke the marks of both die 50 and 100-yard freestyle events. George Berzkalns, a senior, did the same with the 100-yard breaststroke. Individually the swimmers performed as well as previous Hum teams; however throughout the season they faced sterner and keener competition. The high point of the season c;une with the defeat of Northeast High which at the time was in a tie for the City Championship. Co-captains for the year vs ere George Berzkains and Christopher Berry. Coach Ralph Demech. in his first year here has earned our praise for his fine work. These three leaders working in complete cooper¬ ation were responsible for dogged optimism which charaaerized the teiun spirit. If unfailing determination, enthusiastic cooperation, and a belief in the team are the marks of ream success, of the 1961 swimming team has enjoyed a wonderful season. 46-40 Northeast Public High School I 22- 59 Wyoming Seminary I 23- 63 Valley Forge Military Academy I 31-55 Haverford School 37-48 Bainbridge Academy 42.5-43.5 Germantown Academy | 22-63 William Allen High School ; jgffn 39-47 West Chester State College i 36-50 Westtown 38 ‘ 38-48 Coatsville 45-41 George School ! 1 61 ] . - 4-0 Germantown Friends 4-0 Germantown Academy 7- 10 Bartram High School 8- 12 United States Navy Plebes 13-2 Penna.

To date the record is 8-2 with four games still to be played. They should break the Hum record of 9-3 made in 1947. Heavy hitting and effective pitching have been the features in the season’s success. Leading men at bat were John Bradley, who hit 4 for 4 in the Perkiomen game, and John Petronis who has led the team in RBI’s through the season. The rare feat of a no-hit game was achieved, for the first time since 1954, by Joe Wilson against P.S.D. This was also the first year for the Hum to play against Annapolis (Plebes) —a 12-8 loss. Erratic fielding was the team’s weakness. Bad errors were interspersed with generally good work. Jerry Wybranski in the outfield and Paul Hilliard at first w ' ere invaluable. Captain John Petronis, alter¬ nating benv ' een pitching and right field, w ' as dependable in both positions. Eugene Cybulski on the mound gave a good account of himself. Coach Terry Cooper has our respect and appreciation for his abilities and the advice and faith of Frank Sabol, ’52 has given the team a needed lift.

Led by Co-Captain John Perazzelli the consistent strength of the team has been in the distance events. He was closely followed by Ed Smith in nearly every meet. Co-Captain Harry Roth and Richard Reilly were point winners in the 100, 220, and 440. In the shot put Ray Try. Jay Silberman, and Jerome Foley shouldered the burden. Harry Barth in the low and high hurdles did a good job. while Robert Scalia and David Firlein added points in the pole vault. In the first meet of the season the Hum was overwhelmed by a particularly strong Episcopal Academy team, 82-17. They came back in their second meet to defeat Perkiomen Prep, 51-48. They have over¬ come Friends Central, Germantown Friends, and Devereaux and have lost to Haverford and George School for a record to date of 4-. . Ken Hippie and Frank Lowery carried on the managerial duties efficiently and added much to the team morale. Coach Raymond Kressler worked the team hard, demanded their best abilities, and received them. His insistence on rigid training paid off in what may be considered excellent results.
