Text from Pages 1 - 72 of the 1962 volume:

Dear Mr. Girard : For more than one hundred years you have been sending boys from this school into a larger, more demanding life for which you have prepared them. Through generation af¬ ter generation they have added respect and honor to your name. They have become doc¬ tors, lawyers, teachers, and skilled craftsmen; but above all they have become good citizens and good people. Now that we are about to graduate and to leave the home and school you gave us we are suddenly aware of how much you have done for us. First, you gave our mothers help when they badly needed it. Then you brought us to your col¬ lege where we have been nourished in body and in mind, where we have found true friends and have known a good life. If the child is father of the man, then we can face the future unafraid, for you have provided well for your foster sons. And finally, your life and the deeds which have made it will always serve as a source of strength in need. You have given us of your spirit, and we shall " play the game " with all we have. We shall take with us the image of your greatness and the wisdom of your words, " My deeds must be my life.” Now we shall go to prove our worthiness.

We grew stronger and surer with each day’s adventure. We began to talk about the " govy,” the " secy,” and " grub,” and to become " brothers of Girard.” QftiJJh g Uool The Middle School marked our first ma¬ jor step up the Main Road. Here for the first time we were taught by men teachers. Stud¬ ies became more serious and important. Or¬ ganized athletics developed our competitive feelings and sportsmanship. Accomplishment became a responsibility. Our friendships grew in strength. In the friendly classroom life we began to know the purpose of school. (SLpel We shall never forget the magnificence and beauty of our Chapel. Something of the Christmas Concerts, the Sunday services, the Wednesday morning talks will be forever a good and abiding memory. As we read this, we shall be thinking seriously of our grad¬ uation, of walking down the aisle, of leaving Girard and we shall be sad and glad. We shall be thankful for Stephen Girard’s generosity. 53 rtuory The echoing sounds of excited students at a basketball game, the stentorian com¬ mands of officers drilling the Battalion, and the varied tones of horns and drums at Band practice will be brought to our minds when we see this picture of the Armory. We shall remember rhythmic pounding of track men practicing, the pick-up contests in basketball and the exhilaration of physical satisfaction in good exercise with our growing in strength. ■ " ) lecliahtcal gJcLooI Ii his will Stephen Girard expressed a desire to have each student taught a trade or a skill so that on leaving our school the stu¬ dent could earn his living. The Mechanical School has given many of us skills which will fulfill the desires of our Founder, as carpen¬ ters, printers, draftsmen, electricians, machin¬ ists or as automobile mechanics. We shall miss the hours working with our teachers in learning these trades. O ' nji rtnanj Girard College boys are healthy because they have good care. We can thank our nur¬ ses and doctors for their devotion to our well being. Overweight or underweight, toothache or headache, whatever the ailment major or minor we found the care we needed. Some of us who belonged to the " operation metrical” practically joined the staff while enjoying those unusual meals. The Infirmary has been cur refuge when we needed care. 9 ] 9(. g l. -JcUl The doors seen in this picture of the High School were the entrance to ISO days of clas¬ ses and experiences and personalities which are deeply etched in our minds. Assembly pro¬ grams, semester examinations, career pro¬ grams dramatic productions, daily classes, awards of honors in the N.H.S.. and as win¬ ners of varsity letters. WGC programs, and remedial periods filled the days. We have ab¬ sorbed from all of these a purpose and a meaning. J ilrary Girard is the proud possessor of a library superior to that of many colleges and most schools. How many hours have we spent there? How much have we been influenced in our learning and maturing by all that it has offered? Probably much more than we realize. In our tense and struggling world the library stands as a symbol of the know ledge that will keep it free. (Allen r J{Jl In the future when we think of Girard, our thoughts will focus on the good life we had in Allen Hall where we shared with one another the problems, the hopes, and the hon¬ ors of our final year. We shall find new friends in the years to come, but they can never grant us the unrestrained friendships we have known here. Finally we are grateful for the pleasant and firm guidance of Dr. Ziel, Dr. White, Dr. Lander and Mr. Pease. 10 j- Campus Quotes How many boys see what I mean? Hands. Wei III.... Boycott!

The training you have received will play an important part in your happiness during the next half century. We hope it has been of sufficient quality to enable you to be successful in the career you have chosen. Today, you join the ranks of thousands of Girard graduates who have gone before you. Almost all of these Sons of Girard have become outstanding citizens. We are sure you will too. You have a wonderful and challenging future. The ivorld will probably change more during your lifetime than it has during all the previous periods of recorded history. You will be an integral part of this change. How exciting! Now is the time of dreams for you. However, remember dreams come true only if you are wil¬ ling to work, and work hard, to make them become realities. For most of you, the work of the next twenty years will determine if you will be the noteworthy person you are dreaming of becoming. If you succeed, nobody will be more pleased than the men and women here at Girard who have help¬ ed you grow to the man you are today. As you leave Girard, our main wish for you is that you never stop growing. Regardless of the career you choose you will always find there are things you do not know. Just as a tree grows branches as long as it lives, so you should continue to grow intellectually and spiritually as long as you live. During the two years Mrs. Dukes and I have been associated with you, we have been impressed with your friendliness and cooperation. These traits have made our jobs as a host and a hostess for your class a most pleasant and enjoyable experience. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be so closely associated with your group. ) Again, congratulations! It has been a pleasure to work with you. Sincerely, Dr. Reese E.

Scranton At Girard a Hummer goes through the years with the beacon of the senior year beckoning him onw ard. After ten long years we have reached our goal and made our hope a reality, never to be forgotten. Now w ' e look 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 days as seniors and vividly recall the pride of walking down the chapel aisle. Then there was the White Supper, our final Christmas Concert, WGC, the productions of the Dramatic Club, soccer, wrestling, fencing, dances, trips, College Boards, term papers, and the end¬ less hours of study — each of these and many more are the color and spirit painted on the canvas of our best year. The Washington trip gave us a new ' class unity. Seeing the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials, hearing a Congressional debate, and visiting the White House w ' ere memorable events. They created a highlight in this great year, etched in our minds as a gift from our older brothers, the Alumni. We shall miss our life in Allen, our teachers and coaches, our home, and most of all our friends. Suddenly we have become very conscious of how much they have all given us, to prepare us for jobs, military service, or college, for all the demands that w ill be made on us when commencement is in the past. Embedded in our every action and word will be the responsibility of knowing that we are sons of Girard and that we shall be reflecting the fuller meaning of the education and the way of life which have so bountifully been provided for us by our Founder, Stephen Girard. We look back w ' ith pride on our school and go forward eagerly to prove that we are worthy Girardians.

It has led us from the Jun¬ ior School to a Hummer’s Utopia, Allen Hall, and has covered a period of ten years. We look back on those as the necessary preparation for the good life that has been ours in our final year at Girard. The dating privilege, a room with your chosen friends, the no-pass privilege and other advantages were important. Beyond these, there developed a new spirit and purpose made real by the fact that we would soon be leaving the Hum for jobs and college. Our friendships grew deeper and stronger. We learned that responsibility is synonomous w ith the life of a senior and that freedom is an earned privilege. There were many memorable high points: the Washington Trip, the White Supper, and the Bat¬ talion dance among others. There was the pride in leading a team to victory or in learning to accept defeat. And in our Allen life we shared them all. What we have learned and enjoyed in Allen Hall will be a part of our characters forever. It has been a good life and a good year.

A leader throughout his years at Girard, he reached the pinnacle of student offices at the " Hum” when he was elected Student Body President. Winning three Varsity letters a year and being inducted into the National Honor Society added to his achievements. Bruce truly served his alma-mater as best he knew how. Dear Fellow Girardians: During the year that I was your Student Body President I have learned a great deal. Suddenly I see vividly that each of us could have done so much more and so much better in every day’s living for ourselves, our classmates, and our beloved school. Now it is urgent; it is the time for you to realize the importance of Girard College in your lives, to take advantage of the opportunities offered you, and to act so that your deeds express your gratitude. You must resolve to elect only intelligent, courageous, and competent officers who will act for the good of the school and who will not bow down to popularity. You personally must support them so long as they honorably fulfill their responsi¬ bilities. As you read this I shall be graduating and leaving behind me the security and kindness, the affection and protection which is still yours. Try to see it clearly and to appreciate it by your good work. [ 16 In¬ sincerely, Senior Ihiss Pn iilnil JOHN CHARLES KEENAN (ARCH) 309 S. Sharp Streec Glenoldcn, Pa. Academic and Drafting N. H.

His cheerful disposition and jovial manner will really be missed. We pride ourselves in having John as Class Prseident. Dear Classmates: We shall soon be leaving Girard and going our separate ways. After ten years of growing and living together, this is the end of the first important period of our lives. Commencement marks the beginning of a new way of life when what we have learned here will be tested. In a world where skills and substantial education are necessary for a good life we join the thousands of Girardians who have preceded us. Our years together will be among our cherished memories. There will be nothing in the future like them. They will always be a source of strength when we need it. I know that all of us will often turn bac k in our minds to the friendships we have had here and find a comfort and a reason for doing what is right. To do our best be¬ cause we are Hummers is a tradition which has continued over one hundred years. There is a respected place in society for each of us, and it is our responsibility to find it and earn it. As graduates of Girard we represent her in all our actions and words. In college, in business, and in our neighborhoods, wherever we may be, ours is a proud position which we have inherited and which we must uphold. It will be by our accomplishments that we will repay our indebtedness to Girard. Now we shall graduate and depart in many directions. Nothing, however, will be able to dissolve our friendships and our love for our school. We will strengthen her good name. I am humbly grateful to all of you for the faith and support you have given me. You have made this a wonderful year. May God bless you and guide you safely through the years ahead.

Holinstrom, J. Calogero, J. Skojec, J. Cul ani, M. Valente The Corinthian is essentially a portrait of the class of 1962 painted with words and pic¬ tures on the background of Girard College. It will be interesting when we first see it in June, and with the passing years this interest will increase. In 1972 and 1982 we can peruse it and turn time back. It will be in the words of James Barrie " our roses in December. ” The editors-in-chief, Joseph Dailey and John C. Keenan, have planned, organized, and carried through much of the arduous and detailed work. Malcolm Berry, Bruce Gordon, Andrew Caruso, John Levison, and Joseph Skojec have faithfully assisted them as copy writers. John Cupani, assisted by Raymond Koenecker, was responsible for the photography while Charles Rudnicki, of the Print Shop, created the layout. The commendable art work done by Robert Scomo is a very important part of this publication. Alan Poland and Philip Franco handled the unrewarding business problems. Finally, the difficult and wearing work of printing advisor was ably shouldered by Joseph Calogero and Mario Valente whose contributions were invaluable. In many ways The Corinthian symbol¬ izes the best of our Girard lives and educa¬ tion. With the exception of making the cuts, it is a product of our own work. Photography, writeups, layout, cover cut, printing, all are our handiwork. The Class and the staff extend their appre¬ ciation to Mr. Edward R. Klebe, the sponsor, and Mr. M. Arnold Daffin, Instructor in Printing, who have been ever ready to help. (■iraril Literary Magsizine (First Row) G. Najarian, Miss McCracken, M. Hausman (Second Row) D. Albee, M. Ambrose, ). Stabene, . Dailey, D. Miller, R. Frederick, D. Dickman When the fall issue of The Girard Literary Magazine appeared on February 5, 1962, it was greeted with pleasure and surprise by everyone. The new ' format, the new title, the larger size, and the full cov¬ er cut had combined to give this first issue under the sponsorship of Miss Fern McCracken a distinctly new interest and appeal. The keynote of the material was variety, poetry, descriptive essays, short stories and travelogues, all distinguished by imagination and intelligent observation. For the first time a faculty member contribu¬ ted. Miss Juliet E. Stacks wrote a very interesting account of a recent trip to Mexico entitled " Joie de Vivre.” A section devoted to the writing of boys in the Elementary School added interest. As the ed¬ itors stated in a prefatory letter, " the intent of the magazine is to give Girardians an opportunity to demontsrate their ability to write creatively. George Najarian and Michael Hausman as editors under Miss McCracken’s guidance have worked hard and done well. David Miller and James Stabene with the assistance of Mr. M. Arnold Daffin have created page layouts w ' hich had strong reader appeal. There w ' ere many laudatory comments on the cover design created by George Egler. To leave with all of you some thought from our literary efforts let me quote from David Albee’s Pursuit of Happiness. " Each of us must find out for himself that there is a distinct difference between happiness and contentment. Happiness is something that can never be measured in terms of dollars and cents: it is learned through the wise use of freedom, based on work well done, cultivated through friendship and rooted in a deep love of God.” We congratulate the staff for their good thinking and begin our search for happiness.

Co-Editors Robert McCoy and Jaroslaw Kunycia have work¬ ed hard and have produced an excellent school newspaper. The sponsor, Mr. Ca swell E. MacGregor, was out of school during the first month. His work was capably carried on by Dr. Raymond I. Haskell, former head of the English Department and Principal. Without the whole-hearted cooperation of Mr. Arnold Daffin in the Print Shop we could not have produced the News. One of the most improved departments of the News was in the editorials. Two stand out: " Let Us Give Thanks and Be Grateful " and " A Quiet Force.” Articles on the alumni in the teaching profession and the listed All-American soccer players also attracted wide interest. Efficiently heading the Exchange Department was David Albee; Vincent Bakey took charge of distribution while Bruce Gordon and Alan Poland served as Associate News Editors. The important position of Printing Advisor was filled by Charles Rudnicki. Harvey Feldman as Sports Editor did a commendable job in that pop¬ ular department. Photographers Chris Hof- meister and Terry Runyon also turned in some fine work. During each of the last three years the News has been awarded a third, a second, and a first place in the Columbia Press Associa¬ tion Competition.

Gasbarro, E. Holmstrom, J. Register, M. Hausman, J. Reichert To be a member of the choir means to spend hours in rehearsal so that a successful concert may be given. From this a boy achieves a satisfaction and feeling of accomplishment which is unparalleled in most other phases of Girard life. As in years past, the choir did an excellent job in the annual Christmas Concert. Some of the selections were: " Fum-Fum-Fum”, " The Boar’s Carol. " and the familiar German carol " 0 Tann- enbaum.” Dr. Harry C. Banks, the former director of music at Girard, directed a number which he had composed; " Hark! Hear the Merry Bells.” The junior choir sang " Pat-a-Pan,” and the concert was culminated with " Star of Bethlehem,” from the motion picture " Ben Hur. Under the capable leadership of its officers: David Albee, President; Frank Silenzio, Vice-Presi¬ dent; and John Register, Secretary-treasurer, the choir achieved much success. A concert was given at Valley Forge, and in March the choir members appeared at the Academy of Music where they sang " Polevetizian Dances.” Preparing for each Sunday morning chapel service and other outside performances were important parts of their musical education. The boys of the choir sincerely wish to thank Mr. Anthony Falatico, their director, and Miss Juliet Stacks, their accompanist, for their inspiring leadership and never-ending efforts on the choir’s behalf.

Dickman The Student Council of 1961-62 was different in that the Senior and Junior High Councils merged and became the student governing body of Girard. Also new was the advisory system. Each student now has a faculty counselor for his entire five years in the High School. Much of the Council’s work was centered on improving the weekends for the reserved boys. The fact that every area of Girard life was represented in the Council helped to promote both fair and sin¬ cere discussions on all matters t hat confronted the Council. The Council’s job was two-fold: to ex¬ press the student’s opinions and suggestions to the administration and to relate the administration’s desires to the student body. The Council is indebted to Mr. Harold Holman, who with his experience, guided us through the year. The officers chosen for the year were: Bruce Gordon, Student Body President; Edward Holmstrom, Vice President; Robert McCoy and Jaroslaw Kunycia, Recording Secretaries; David Dick¬ man, Corresponding Secretary; and David Reese, Treasurer. The Junior National Honor Society and a skating rink were first introduced to Girard this year. The Junior High was also granted the privilege of attending an away Junior High soccer game. The retiring members of the Council leave as their motto: " It’s not what Girard can do for me, but what I can do for Girard.” 4 42 ) Mudsill CVutor (First Row) . Resister, Mr. Dunkle, D.

The staff of the Student Center for the year of ’61, ' 62 can be proud of its achievements. Under the sponsorship of Mr. George H. Dunkle and the exceptionally fine managing of David Dickman, they have shattered all previous records of sales and profits by hundreds of dollars. The staff can be proud of their work. In the fall ’of the year, Dave Dickman, realizing that many seniors were too busy with various activities to get to the " Store”, decided to bring the store to Allen Hall. Many of our evenings were brightened with the " goodies” that w ere to be found in Dave’s big box. Certainly there are many days that are made more enjoyable because there is the opportunity to buy a coke, a piece of candy or an ice cream sandwich at the Center. It contributes the invaluable pleasure of providing a student meeting place where one can joke and talk with friends, play pool, or just enjoy a few- leisure moments. All of the social affairs w ' ere made possible due to the never-tiring workers of the " Store.” Among the many who worked hard for the satisfaction of doing a job well were John Register, Assistant Manager; Michael Am¬ brose, Bookkeeper; George Najarian, Secre¬ tary; and numerous counter heads. The Student Center has been bringing happiness into our lives since we were little ' Westies.” It shall be long remembered by the Class of 1962! 43 } Students nt Sales Counter Ilrsimath 4 ' liib (First Row) .

Andrews assisted by several student directors under the title Scenes in the Life of a Girardian. It was, in effect, a pan¬ orama of our activities. The dramatic sketches depicted the social life of a Hummer, Girard athletics the training of the Battalion, and high points in the life of a senior. They were excellently written and performed and thoroughly appreciated by the audience. In the spring the Thespians presented The World Waits, a tense drama written by George F. Hum- mal, which deals with an expedition sent out to explore the unknown Antarctic continent. It creates the conflict between physical leadership and the leadership based on faith and moral convictions.Out- standing performances were given by John C. Keenan, Harvey Feldman, Andrew Di Giuseppi, and Richard Flaherty. Elected as officers of the Club were John C. Keenan, President; Joseph Dailey, Vice President; and Philip Franco, Secretary-tresurer. The experience of being a member of the Dramatic Club is a memory to be cherished. There are long hours of rehearsal; there is the task of absorb ng the character to be po ' tray- ed; and there is the feeling of hope and fear¬ ful confidence just before the performance. The patience, the understanding, and the di- cipline required of each boy under Mr. Andrew’s direction develops an appreciation of the drama which can be acquired in no other way. 4 44 ] Basher Drills Recruits YUi (First Row) J.

Now, after a year of faithful service to Girard, they have gained the experience found only in the professional world. Under the excellent guidance and sponsorship of Mr. Henry V. Andrews, the staff has done more than its share to better Girard life. The cliche " to brighten up your Monday morning blues” was not just an expression, but the actual purpose of the radio program. The accent of each broadcast was on news, views, trends, sports, music, and humor. Special congratulations are in order for Joe Dailey, the Director of Writers, and Mike Berry, the Assistant Director, who spent long hours each week producing a well-balanced program for good radio lis¬ tening. The constant work of these boys, together with the valuable reporting of such boys as Harvey Feldman and Roger Woodruff made the show a continuous success. In the announcing department, Jack ■ Keenan served as Head Announcer, opening and closing each show with his commanding voice and effective delivery. On Tuesday morning WGC-FM pro¬ vided classical music for the entertainment of the audience. David Miller and Lazio Rudnyanski alternated as announcers for the show.

Bakey Twelve experienced and enthusiastic seniors directed by Captain James Collins made up the nucleus of the 1961-1962 Concert Band. They had begun five years ago their patient practice amid the discordant sounds of trumpets, trombones, clarinets and other instruments. Under the patient tutelage of Mr. Morrison they improved in skill until they became regular members of the Band. This was their final year, and they were responsible for making this a musical organization of which they could be proud. In preparing for the annual Christmas Concert Captain Collins succeeded in developing a com¬ mendable morale which resulted in a fine Concert. It was considered one of the best in the long tra¬ dition of good music. Among the selections played and well received by the audience were Water Music. Air and March, Fantasy for Band, and Dvorak’s Slavonic Dances. Certainly the members and Mr. Morrison felt a deep sense of satisfaction in their accomplishment. During the year, the band visited Harriton High School, and performed in the Founder’s Day and Spring Concerts. The members shall never forget the preparation for Saturday morning concerts, and their chance to lead the " in-march” or " out-march.” The annual trips to the Zoo and the river- boat trip on the Delaware to celebrate Nation¬ al Maritime Day will be cherished memories. What is gained from participation in the Con¬ cert Band is a love for music, the thought that practice brings one closer to perfection, and the will to work until a piece of music is understood. 4 46 Mr. Morrison at Rehearsal Itaif Isilion (First Row) E.

He was assisted by a group of competent officers: Captain of Recruits Robert Basher, Captain Quartermaster John C. Keenan, Captain Inspector Bruce Gordon, and Captain Adjustant Walter Maholick. Commanding the individual companies were Captain Andrew DiGiuseppi, Company C; Captain Alfred DiTizio, Company D; Captain Gene Ferro, Company A; and Captain Joseph Calogero, Com¬ pany B. Each of the leaders strove to develop his unit into a superior group. The test came in the mid-term competitive drill when Captain DiGiuseppi’s Company C took first honors. Company D under Captain DiTizio was in second place. Founder’s Day found the Battalion at its best giving an outstanding performance and earning the commendations of Alumni and distinguished guests. From the time and effort we have devoted to the battalion during our years in the high school, we reap such benefits as an apprecia¬ tion and understanding of discipline, a real¬ ization of the demanding nature of authority, and the poise which is necessary to go on to success.

Biscontini This was the twenty-fifth year in which the Girard Seniors and Juniors have taken part in the In¬ terscholastic Senior High School Student Forums which are sponsored by the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia. Last spring Joseph Dailey, because of his interest and ability, was elected co-chairman of the Interscholastic Senior High School Council, the Girard branch of which is sponsored by Mr. H. Emory Wagner, head of the Social Studies Department. Subjects discussed at the meetings during the year were provocative and timely. Nuclear testing, unaligned nations, the Common Market, Latin America, the problems in Southeast Asia and the functions of the United Nations were at various times critically analyzed. The students agree that this program not only gave them a better understanding of world problems but also deepened their in¬ terest in other areas of study. Girard’s service at the Council was given recognition when it was chosen to represent and defend the policies of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics at the Model United Nations held on the campus of the University of Pennsyl¬ vania. Each of the participing schools of the World Affairs Council represented a country at this meeting which was patterned after the U nited Nations of New York. During the year the Council sponsored three trips to New York to observe the U.N. in action. Girardians were among those who took advantage of this opportunity. 4 49 Students Bone Up For Forum Social l ife Dr. Dukes, Mrs. Hern, Mrs. Dukes, Miss McGhee, Mr. Foley It was in the ninth grade that Miss Miriam McGhee, our devoted and indefatigable Social Di¬ rectress first looked at the socially shapeless group that we then were. In her class, labeled Social Guidance, we were firmly molded into " the Girardian, the gentleman.” In the succeeding year we were led to the small gym to learn the art of dancing under the tutelage of the famous Mr. John Keenan. After months of determined preparation we appeared, expectantly and fearfully, at our first af¬ fair, the traditional Sophomore Coke Party. It was our first experience with girls at a semi formal party. We were abrupt and shy, bold and withdrawn; we were being educated socially. Who of us could ever forget it. Having made the initial leap, we returned to a colorful schedule of dances in the junior year with assurance and anticipation. There were attractive girls, melodious music, and the inevitable punch, all blended. Then we had our first formal, the Cadet Dance, with corsages, polished brass, taxi cabs, and flat w-allets. In the senior year the shapeless ninth grader had become the gentleman. Two house parties, two canteen dances, two cadet dances, and three class dances gave ample opportunity to refine the social graces and enjoy life to the full. They added the color and pleasant buoyancy to a schedule crowded with examinations, term papers, and general routine. We express to our hosts and hostesses. Dr. and Mrs. Dukes, Mr. Richard Foley and Mrs. Beatrice Hearn, our thanks for all their thoughtfulness. We are also grateful to Miss Miriam McGhee who has made our social life at Girard a pleasant and rewarding experi¬ ence. Seniors anil Their Dates 4 50 } Swing IBsmil (First Row) V. Bakcy, D.

Spingler Through the years the successive swing bands have improved and have become a necessary and enjoyable part of our Girard life. This year, for example, the Indigoes, with John Cupani as the leader, have contributed their melodious rhythm to assemblies in the Junior School and in the High School and to nearly all of the dances in our social program. This excellent musical organization has no sponsor and is completely student directed. The members practice assiduously and enthusiastically. As an independent activity it is unique in our pro¬ gram. With the experience of their junior year John Levison, David Miller, Pat Daly, William Verna, and Captain John Cupani formed the nucleus of the 1962 Indigoes whose theme song was Autumn Leaves. Other tunes we shall remember them for are: Sing, Sing, Sing. Little Brown Jug, and Rock-a- bye Your Baby with a Dixie Melody. These are songs that will always remind us of the parties and dances of our final Hum year. Members of the swing bands of previous years have gone on to make a career in mus¬ ic. Undoubtedly some one of the 1962 group will follow this precedent. All of them have developed an interest which will bring them pleasure permanently. We shall look for¬ ward to hearing them play at the twenty-fifth reunion. The Indigoes have done much to make the senior year memorable. Their long hours of practice have given us a band of which we are proud. 51 l li»lo£rsi|»li ' V Club R. Koennecker, C. Hofmeister, T. Runyon, J. Kunycia Indisputably the Photography Club has been one of the busiest activities on the cam¬ pus during the year. Every sporting event, social occasion, or special service was an in¬ vitation to get out the camera and seize the moment in a picture. Literally hundreds of pictures were taken for the Girard News and the Corinthian. Much of the value of the book in your hands stems from their work. The pictures before you will increase in meaning and sentimental value each year. The service and the interest which the club makes possible result from the work of its officers: Christopher Hofmeister, Presi¬ dent; Terry Runyon, Vice-President; and Jerry Kunycia, Secretary. Constant, steady, and lending a hand when needed Mr. Perley H. Pease, our spon¬ sor, has earned our thanks. Itifle Club The Rifle Club for 1961-62 has contin¬ ued to be one of Girard’s finest but less con¬ spicuous organizations. Orginally it was in¬ stituted for the purpose of training its mem¬ bers in the safe use of firearms and in marks¬ manship. Every senior member has been the recipient of awards at the level of sharpshoot¬ er; some have earned higher ranking. The officers for this year have been Donald Debus, President; Christopher Hofmeister, Vice-President; Eric Knight, Senior Range Officer; and Malcolm Zerbc, Junior Range Officer. Other members were James Frigiola, Phil p Franco, John Reichert, and Richard Ritunnano. Riflery is a sport that we can enjoy at any age. Because the Club members will probably pursue this interest throughout their lives, we feel that it is a very important school ac¬ tivity. The patience, time, and effort which Mr. Roy Glerum, our sponsor has devoted to the Club has earned our respect and our thanks. (Left to right) H. Strahlendorf, J. Collins, C. Hofmeister, R.

Miller In recent years fencing at Girard has earned a high place in the field of sports, and the achieve¬ ments of the 1962 swordsmen have added to its prestige. The Yale Trophy which is emblematic of the top echelon in high school fencing in Pennsyl¬ vania has again been awarded to the Girard team. It is the second successful year that our fencers have won this highly coveted cup. The team can be proud of its record. The three competitors responsible for this honor are Captain Andrew Caruso in the sabre, Rich¬ ard Miller in the foil and John Register in the epee. Caruso was the recipient of a Warren Sword for taking first in his division. Throughout the regular season the senior members seemed to fare best. John Register and Jaro- slaw Kunycia served as the backbone of the epee squad. Rich Miller won a number of medals in the American Fencers League Association competition. Andrew Caruso’s undefeated record was an outstanding feat that is rarely achieved. The team was privileged to have as its coach Mr. Benjamin Rothberg, a dedicated man who was the deciding factor in making the team of 1961-1962 a success. He has produced fine teams in the past and we know he will continue to do so in the future. Girard 19 — Thomas Edison H. S. " 18 — Central H. S. " 16 — Northeast H. S.

Sil enzio The 1962 soccer team captained by Richard Flaherty and Joseph Skojec upheld the great Girard tradition in this sport by winning the Independent Schools Championship of Philadelphia. The booters’ play varied from gen¬ erally brilliant to occasionally mediocre. They lost the important West Chester State College game, 4-U, but bounced back to sink the Plebes of Annapolis, 3-2 in one of the best games or the season. The starting line consisted of Joseph Skojec, Richard Flaherty, John J. Keenan, Charles Rudnicki, Malcolm Allardyce. and Thomas Buchman. Behind them were Bruce Gordon, David Reese, Jeff Hoard, John Coyle, Robert Basher, William Swartz and goalie Ed Holmstrom. Much of tne credit tor this successful season was the result of the hard work of coaches David Wolstenholme and Terry Cooper. 4 5 (Left Row) R. Hamilton, R. Achmoody, F. Berger, A. Dougherty, ].

Perhaps more important than these statis¬ tics was the high moral. In every practice ses¬ sion and every meet there was confidence, and a contagious spirit which made every man do better than he thought he could. Under the leadership of Co-captains Mike Berry, Jim Collins, and Phil Franco, there was a consistent exhibition of good sportsman¬ ship and a strong desire to come through in the pinch. A number of school records were broken. Jim Hartman lowered his personal record in the 100-yard freestyle to 54.3. Bill Miller established a new Hum record of 1:14:2 in the 100-yard breaststroke, Allen Yarbrough lowered the 100-yard butterfly to 1:06:7 rec¬ ord. Some of the victories were very satisfying, particularly those over the Haverford School and the West Chester State College. The squad had the distinction of defeating North¬ east Public High School, a team that went on to become the Public League Champions. A good season is the produc t of hard work and good coaching. Coach Demech has given us both and we are grateful. 56 ) (First Row) T. Buchman, F. DiTizo (Second Row) R. Murray, J. Braun, B. Norton, ). Maleno, F. Schiavo, R. Basher, J. Be gosh, r A. Bilheimer, ]. Michaluk, G. Rohrbaugh There is an old saying " He didn’t know it couldn’t be done, and so he went ahead and did it.” During the wrestling season this often seemed to apply to various members of the team. They didn’t know that they were supposed to lose so they won. Of course, there were other factors. They were eager to improve and willing to work in prac¬ tice. There was an obvious spirit of working as in¬ dividual; for that the team deserves commendation. The final record of eight wins and five losses is an impressive accomplishment over very strong com¬ petition. Co-Captains Tom Buchman and Fred DiTizio by their winning records and leaderhip set the pace. Bob Basher, Jim Braun, AI Bilheimer, and George Rohrbaugh played important roles in the team’s success. The grapplers placed second in the Episcopal Invitational Wrestling Tournament, placing eight in the semi-finals and three in the finals. John Mal¬ eno winning over his Haverford opponent was the only Hummer to win a trophy. Fred DiTizio went through the regular season with thirteen wins and no losses, an outstanding accomplishment. He came through in every crisis to give his teammates sound leadership. We gratefully acknowledge the devoted work of Coaches David Wolstenholme and Frank Sabol whose tireless efforts and enthusiasm inspired the team throughout the season.

Dempsey, D. Reese, R. Woodruff, D. Debus, R. Levin, C. Rudnicki Mr. R. Foley With only two lettermen returning the ’62 basketball team was handicapped from the start. In ipite of this Coach Foley did a remarkable job in creating a strong quintet for the opening game ind tabling a 5-8 record for the season. Captained by Ed Holmstrom (6’2”), the team got off to a good start, doing better than they had toped, by taking the first four games. However the competition was relatively weak, or there was a bad etdown, for in their fifth game a tall, powerful Dobbins team turned back the Hummers by a 25 joint margin, 56-31. What happened after this defeat is a coach’s nightmare. Luck changed from bad to worse. The earn seemed to fall apart, losing five successive games, the worst a 65-35 loss to Haverford School. There seemed to be a turning point when Rich Flaherty scored the season’s high for a single game to pace the Hum in defeating the Westtown School,45-37. It was not a sustained burst and the quintet finished with their 5-8 record. The boys had the opportunity of learning to be good losers. In points scored, Rich Flaherty led the team with 162 points. Ed Holmstrom, was second with 147, and Joe Dailey was in third with 105. We wish to express to Coach Foley our thanks for never letting us give up in this losing season.

Cooper Led by Captain Joe Skojec and his heavy hitting, this year’s baseball team is threat¬ ening to break the existing Hum record of 10-3 set last year. In all three areas pitching, fielding, and hitting the team has shown commendable prowess. Leading power hitters are Skojec and Ed Holmstrom, closely followed by Iou Di Guglielmo and Mario Valente. To date every player seems to be at his best in the clutch. The pitching staff has been particularly effective. Ed Holmstrom and Bruce Gordon have performed very well, turning in two- hit games against Benjamin Franklin and West Catholic. Behind the plate Dave has been a key player with good judgmem and a good arm. On the field the team has improved steadily. Coach Terry Cooper has continu¬ ally stressed their fielding, their know¬ how, and their speed. The players have worked with him and have been on their toes every minute of play and practice. It is this headsup spirit that has been a major factor in their success. John Coyle’s smart work in base stealing played an important part in a number of games. To Coach Cooper we express our thanks for his untiring effort and his faith in us.

Charles Rudnicki, and four other seniors Rich Flaherty, Joseph Calogero, Laz¬ io Rudnyansky, and Charles Woodruff. Flaherty and Rudnicki were elected co-captains to lead this inexperienced but determined squad. The season opened with a lop-sided loss to a strong Episcopal Academy team by th score 71-28. Undaunted, they practiced harder and went on in their second dual meet to defeat Friends Central by 52-47 margin. In the highly competitive Penn Relays, they failed to place among the winners but continued to show improvement. This was also true in the Spiked Shoe meet and the Church Farm Invitational meet. The squad was weak in the distance running but exhibited better than average strength in the hurdles and sprints. Richard Flaherty consistently did better than eighteen feet in the broad jump. A group of sophomores and juniors who, al¬ though they did not score heavily, improved con¬ sistently throughout the season will return to the ’63 team with a year of varsity experience. These boys, Robert Norton, Joseph Flaherty, Phillip Newton, Edward Brown, Thomas Hill, Richard Murray and Joel Dempsey will be the nucleus of a strong team. P. Newton, V.

Kauffman, M. Zerbe, J. C. Keenan, J. Begosh Led by Co-Captains George Rohrbaugh and Laszlo Rudnyanszky and guided by Coach Robert W. Gibson, the Steel and Garnet harriers in their second official season made a creditable record. They competed in three dual meets, winning one and losing wo: defeating Germantown Friends and trailing Williamson Trade School and Epis¬ copal Academy. In a quadrangular meet held at the Church Farm School they took a well earned second place. Because of the rigorous physical punishment which each member of the team goes through in building up the stamina and endurance which is necessary to excel in a sport such as this, good health and a strong team spirit are primary requi- sits for having a good team. Injuries hampered both captains and Fletcher Brown during much of the season. These handicaps seem to serve merely to strengthen the determina¬ tion of the team to improve. Although the team will lose three members by graduation, a strong nucleus of experienced under¬ classmen should produce a good team in 1963.
