Text from Pages 1 - 72 of the 1963 volume:

Pp Dear Mr. Girard : The long-awaited moment of our departure has finally come. Although we have anticipated the day of graduation since our early days as " newbies,” now that it is here, we find ourselves pausing before that large step. We pause and look back with mixed emotions on the school that we have known as the " Hum,” a school that has provided us with a good life, good friends, and many happy memories. She has laid before our feet all the opportunities to develop ourselves educationally, physi¬ cally, morally, and spiritually. Ottr teachers have taken " pains to instill into the minds of the scholars the purest principles of morality ... so that in entrance to active life " we should each represent the ideals of your school in a manner deserving of the pivilege to be called your sons. There are members of this class who have been students at Girard for eleven years, others ten, nine, and eight, but the years we have spent in this school do not measure the extent of our devotion to her or our thankfulness for your beneficence. Even now, we cannot fully comprehend the value of our Girard training. But in several years to come when time has sweetened our memories and taught us some of the lessons of life, we shall see more clearly. It is not the challenge of the new life which we are entering that makes us hesitate at those familiar gates, for you have given us the knowledge to accept it with a ready heart and mind. Instead, it is the thought of no longer seeing our classmates after we have separated and gone on to build our lives that gives us those few pangs of sadness. We must go now. No longer shall we be where our hearts are, but Girard will live as long as Girardians. Farewell and thank you, Mr. Girard.

Zeil Allen Hall Life After dreaming wishfully and hopefully for ten years, the Class of 1963 entered the hal¬ lowed realm of Allen Hall, the symbol of increased freedom, privileges, and responsibilities. To some, Allen did symbolize the comforts of private rooms, or the last step to graduation, but to most of us, it meant a greater opportunity to mature, develop, and exercise the characteristics needed to lead a good life after leaving Girard. For us, Allen holds many memories, some happy and others not so happy when we failed in some way to live up to what was expected of us. Who can forget the first night back, the first sight of our spacious suites and those bunk-beds high above the reach of ordinary people? How can w ' e forget our roommates, our good times and difficult moments together? We can look back and muse about those sleep-inducing studies, our traditional lateness to breakfast, bureau and closet checks, and the agonizing pains of the hopeful college-bound seniors as they waited for news of acceptance. Hotel Allen has offered us countless op-porcunities to realize the deep values of friendship and loyalty to one another and school. Allen has been a good teacher; we have tried to become good pupils, but she has taught us to respect and to appreciate more fully all that we have, espec¬ ially our friends. She has been truly a " sui generis” or type unto itself. We w ' ould like to extend our deepest thanks to Dr. Zeil, Dr. Lander, Dr. White, and Mr. and Mrs. Pease for their guidance during this most memorable of years at Girard. 8 ! Senior Highlights It has always been said that the senior year is the most memorable, and this year is no exception, by any means. At the start of our residence in Allen Hall, we looked expectantly to¬ ward such occasions as the annual White Supper, the Christmas Concerts, and the Christmas plays. Then in February came our Washington Trip, an event which had been enthusiastically anticipated as the crowning point of our senior year. It was truly an unforgettable and delightful experience for those who had never seen our capital. In the spring, many took part in the Spring Concert, enjoyed the spring plays by the Dramatic Club, and partici¬ pated in the ever-popular Tal¬ ent Show sponsored by WGC. 9 ] «( 10 Jt Class Poll FRIENDLIEST KEENAN CLASS RADICAL .

Dutchman Second Row: C. McCullough, J. Poncavage, S. Heimowitz, R. Norton Third Row: O. Peters, J. Flaherty, J. Hackenburg, J. Kauffman, R. Kirby, B. Buschel, E. Johnson To attempt squeezing the course of eight to twelve years within a meager sixty-four pages is indeed a difficult task. All the happy memories mixed with a few sad moments, nearly forgotten faces clouded w ith the rose-tinted haze of sw ' eet remembrance, and the trying years to manhood, must be recreated in w-ords and pictures. This challenging task was shouldered by co-editors George Egler and Thomas J. Keenan with the invaluable guiding hand of the sponsor, Mr. Clement Valletta. Although we had no actual experience in the creation of a yearbook, we gradually learned fom experience how much thought, planning, and plain hard work were required to produce a yearbook worthy of our heritage as Girardians. Our staff of writers, Joseph Flaherty, James Poncavage, Ronald Kirby, Charles McCullough, Jesse Hackenberg, and Bruce Buschel tried to present the material in a clear vivid style. Without the dependable efforts of our competent printing advisors, Otto Peters and Robert Norton, the Corinthian could not have been transformed from an idea to a concrete publication. The pictures were taken by John Dutchman and Morgan Hancock. Without a doubt, the photography is one of the most vital factors in the success or failure of a yearbook’s effectiveness. Much work was done by the business managers, Jack Kauffman and Steven Heimowitz as well as by the art directors. The Corinthian staff would sincerely like to thank Mr. M. Arnold Daffin and the seniors of the Print Shop for the outstanding contributions they made to make our book a reality and ever present reminder of those days at Girard. • ( 14 j Oiranl News First Rou, Left to Right: B.

Sto ' ckburger The Girard News distinguished itself by its varied and interesting material. This was the pro¬ duct of persistent effort under the capable editorship of Bernard Shockowitz and James McCullough. Under the guidance of Mr. M. Arnold Daffin, who doubled as writing and printing sponsor, the boys made the News a great success. Assisting Mr. Daffin and the editors were: Stephen Brand¬ schain and Albert Cohen associate news editors, and Fletcher Brown, sports editor. For the first time in many years, the Girard News was a complete student responsibility. After the students had written the material, it was up to the editors and not a sponsor to edit the articles. Because of this experiment, the News did not publish as many issues as it would have wished. Assured of being a student publication, each issue of the paper was one of the highest quality, representative of the student body. " Talent Show Delights Audience” and " Mr. MacGregor Appointed High School Principal” were only two of the many headlines found in this year’s issues. Two articles which have always delighted its readers were " Allenite " and " Junior Highlights.” This year again the News was faith¬ ful with these selections. Many a boy was amused at their occasional humor and wit. Special men¬ tion must also be made of the sports section. There was excellent coverage of all athletic events. The articles always gave credit to the individuals and team that deserved recognition. There was a great response from the reporters who form the backbone of any good publication. The outstanding quality of Girard News could not have been at all achieved without the untiring efforts of the photo¬ graphers, Charles Riddle and Alfred Morgan, in ad¬ dition to the hardworking printing advisors Gary Paulson and Victor Bialoskurski. 15 j (firm ' d Literary Magazine ;t R m, Left to Ri hi: D.

Romm, L Comfla The Gtrjrd Literary Magazine, sponsored by Gss Fern -- IcCracken placed die accent on Christmas in the fist edition. The response was so overwhelming dm many good articles, dm other¬ wise would have been printed, were turned away. The editor-in-chief, John Michaluk, aided by the co-editors. Jack Kauffman and Daniel Perkins, worked with Miss McCracken for two months to have a better-than-average magazine. With the help of the priming advisors, Daniel Hagerty, Michael Donovan, and Robert Norton, their efforts were well rewarded in a magayinf- that was both unique and stimulating. The winter edition of the Literary Magazine appeared with the same cover and ride as last year”s, but there was a difference in the quality and direction. The Literary Magazine set at its goal as wide a contribution from the classes as possible in order to achieve a diversified and represenative edition. Emphasis was put on Christmas since the first issue- appeared in December. In addition to the Yuletide writing were Senior book reviews and poetry, as well as moral codes taken from the editor’s speech for the induction of new members into the National Honor Society. The spring edition also proved to be of high calibre, presenting a w ide variety of fresh, creative writings. There was, for example, a new theme entided " new tunes for old melodies.” Participation by younger w riters offering a new oftentimes lyrical expression added to the enjoyment and variety of the edition. The magazine, in attempting to have members of the faculty contribute, tried to have the articles reflect an intellectual meeting place. The aim of the magazine was to present the expression and literary achievement of Girardians at their best. Without a doubt, it reached and greatly surpassed its expectations.

V Nxvklswys F, Brown Our aims were simple—to enlighten, recall, and inform the smdents with the news and views within and beyond the school. This year, we introduced many new arrangements, such as alumni news, science reports, and interviews in try my to provide a varied and more pleasing show. Some succeeded and some d:d not The show was for the students and we tried our best to give them what they w anted. When we inherited the show. Kick in June of l ' ' -, we had no idea of the work that went w ith it. For the ten or fifteen minutes of WGC each mommy. lony hours had to be spenr behind the scenes in work. Special reports, interviews, the gathering of material, organizing, and the final production, all required a great deal of work. Under the leadership of Mr Henry V. Andrews, the w riters and announcers both learned that hard work and best efforts are always needed to produce a gtxxl show. The shows ranged up and down the scale but the biggest hits were undoubtedly the holiday specials. The annual tulcnt show, of January 25, sponsored by die WGC staff was in every respect a good example of outstanding showmanship and great effort on the part of those who performed. There are few who could not say it was indeed one of the most enjoyable presenta¬ tions ever put together by the students themselves. FM radio was for most of us our first adventure into the arts. It ' ntroduced a broad scope of classic works such as Divorak ' s The New World Symphony and Offenbach ' s Orpheus . and some of the lighter modern pieces: Comden Green ' s Suhuay .lr ' •»■ Ship ing and the theme from The Apartment. On alternate weeks, it inspired and promoted an activity rarely heard on campus and cul¬ tivated an interest w hich all can appreciate later in life. 17 !

Crumling, G. Egler, W. Miller Third Row: T. Hirst, G. Guattare, Mr. H. Andrews The Girard College Dramatic Club has, down through the years, presented many outstanding plays. This year was no exception. The club consisted of a well-rounded group of individuals, who com¬ bined their talents to present three fine performances during the 1962-63 season. During the month of December they presented scenes from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. The performance was unique in that the ghost, Marley, was an imaginative figure who was not seen, but only heard. This innovation gave Joseph Flaherty, as Scrooge, an opportunity to present his acting ability. After the per¬ formance, the actors received many favorable comments about the successful production. The much anticipated Spring plays, were presented on May 9, and 10. Two contrasting plays were presented for the combined audience of students and guests. The first, Nicholas Nickleby, again by Charles Dickens, presented the harsh school life in rural England. The great amount of comedy was well brought out by the actors; especially, Michael Russo in his portrayal of Squeers, the schoolmaster. The Second play, Just Boys (Les Garcons Settlement), by Paul Geraldy, was a modern French production. The three actors pre¬ sented the characters well and brought out the subtle comedy. The audience sensed the conflict between father and son, and greeted the closing of the curtain with ringing applause. This year’s officers were: Joseph Flaherty, President; Thomas Hill, Vice-Pres¬ ident; and Michael Russo, Secretary-Treasurer. A special amount of thanks go to Mr. Henry V. Andrews, director and sponsor of the club, for once again bringing successful drama to the Girard stage. h( 18 3 StmUm! Center First Row, Left to Right: S. Brandschain, J. Poncavage, Mr. G. Dunkle, G. Westfall Second Rote: H. Romans, W. Maholick, J. Flaherty Third Row: J. Hackenberg This year the Student Center attempted to make the store more of a social meeting place instead of merely a place of business. Here a student could relax and enjoy himself each night while he had some¬ thing to eat. The whole routine of the Student Center was one of an informal student leadership. There has never been a lack of partici¬ pants for the Student Center canteen dances mainly because it is the students’ affair, and everyone has a memorable time. The store instituted many improvements this year. We pro¬ vided a separate, complete branch store for the younger boys in the elementary school. This eliminated confusion and gave more oppor¬ tunities for boys to learn practical business management. Another improvement w as the addition of new ' equipment such as pool sticks and counters to replace the old ones. As an added convenience, manager George Westfall supplied the busy seniors in Allen Hall with the delicacies of the store. His treasure chest of goodies has relieved the hunger of many a senior during those crucial hours from 7:30 to 9:30. Many students do not realize that the money they spend at the Student Center is returned to them in the form of athletic equipment, student supplies, and other necessities. In this way the store benefits each student directly. Under the direction of Mr. George Dunkle, manager George Westfall, assist¬ ant manager James Poncavage, and book¬ keeper Stephen Brandschain, the store made significant progress in its goal toward more student enjoyment. Jesse Hackenberg, Walter Maholick, and Her¬ bert Romans, the counter heads, also proved helpful in increasing store profi¬ ciency. 19 y Student Council First Row, Left to Right: C. Kalata, V.

Maholick, J. Begosh, D. Hagerty (not shown) This was the second year in which the Student Council operated with the Senior and Junior High Councils combined. This plan better enabled all aspects of Girard life and all students to be well represented. The Student Council of 1962-63 took on as its main task, the job of creating more interest in student activities. It w ' as generally thought that too few students were carrying on the work and lead¬ ership of the activities, and that this was hurting these boys scholastically. The thought was brought to the attention of the Student Body that more students should participate in order to help themselves and Girard. A genuine improvement was at once evident. Along the same lines, the Council hoped to improve attendance at sporting events by having the contests for each week announced in the minutes. A bulletin board has been made in the Mechanical School so that these, and other student announcements, could be posted within easy sight. In its drive to improve student-faculty relations the number of student-faculty committee meetings was stepped up. Many ideas for future projects have been started in the relation of student, faculty and administration. A word of thanks goes to Mr. Holman for his constant efforts as the sponsor of the organi¬ zation. The officers for the year were: Joseph Flaherty, Student Body President; John Michaluk, Vice-President; George Westfall, Recording Secretary; and Thomas Keenan, Corresponding Sec¬ retary and Treasurer. As the Senior members of the Council leave, they hope the leaders of next year will continue the task of improving Girard. The Student Council continues to be the expression of innovation and cooperation among the students. { 20 y Xsil Honor Society « First Row, Left to Right: C. McCullough, D. Perkins, J. Michaluk, B.

Schoell Leadership . character, scholarship, and service : These four words describe the qualities of the twelve students who are members of the Na¬ tional Honor Society. They have earned the special recognition that this society provides by attain¬ ing high achievement in scholarship, exemplifying citizenship, and displaying leadership. Twice each year, in autumn, and spring, this honor is bestowed upon deserving students. The inductees receive their pin, and become members of the nationally recognized society with the following pledge: l pledge myself to uphold the high purpose of the Society, striving in every word and deed to make its ideals the ideals of my school and of my life. In the spring of their junior year these boys were inducted into the National Honor Society: John Michaluk, Bernard Shockowitz, James McCullough, George Egler, Jack Kauffman, and Ronald Kirby. The coming year, the society found six new members who were inducted as seniors. They were: Daniel Perkins, George Guattare, John Cecot, Joseph Flaherty, Thomas Keenan, and Charles McCullough. These boys will always wear their pins with pride and we hope they will continue in life to achieve the high standards they have set for themselves at Girard. In the first term of the senior year, the so¬ ciety elected its officers who were: John Michaluk, President; Bernard Shockowitz, Vice-President; and George Egler, Secretary. A new election was held in the second term among t he twelve-mem¬ ber group, and John Michaluk was re-elected Pres¬ ident, George Egler became the new Vice-Presi¬ dent, and Bernard Shockowitz was made Secretary. 4 21 } • Battalion First Row, Left to Right: W.

Bialoskurski Under the student leadership of Cadet Major Walter Maholick and the watchful guidance of Lieutenant Colonel James M. Hamilton and Master Sergeant Matthew McMillen, this year’s battalion proved to be one of the best in recent years. Major Maholick, with the help of his staff, Captain Quartermaster Thomas Keenan Captain Inspector Joseph Flaherty, Captain of Recruits Ronald Clemente, and Captain Adjutant Stanley Werley kept the battalion running smoothly throughout the year in preparation for Founder’s Day. The completion of the winter competitive drill found: Company C, Captain Frederick Schiavo, first; Company B, Captain Anthony Pasquarelli, second; Company D, Captain John Maleno, third; and Company A, Captain Robert O’Donnell, fourth. The highlight of the year was Founder’s Day when the Echelon, combined with the forces of the battalion, entertained the alumni and visitors with an exceptionally good performance on the drill field. When it became time to hand down the responsibilities of officers to our successors we knew that we had formed for ourselves a military discipline which will be of great importance in future years. We fully realized that some day we will serve our country in the armed forces, and with our background in the " Batty” we can feel certain that this discipline will not be lost in times of " limited warfare.” ii j A 22 y ( oiicerr Itsi ml First Rou, Left to Right : G.

Shockowitz It would not be a hollow hyperbole or over-exaggerated compliment to say that this year’s Concert Band has produced some of the finest performances heard for many years. Despite the taxing loss of several valuable seniors at graduation, the band went on to become better than it had been before as can be seen by the more difficult selections and fine calibre of execution. At the annual Christmas Concert, the band presented a varied program which included the memorable numbers of La Bou¬ tique Fantasque by Rossini-Respighi, Anderson’s spright Bugler’s Holiday, the traditional, Greensleeves, and A Christmas Festival by Anderson. The Spring Concert also was marked as one of the Concert Band’s best displays of enjoyable music. With the lively Folk Songs from Somerset, Caribbean Fantasy, an exciting beguine, some high¬ lights from the show Camelot, and the dramatic depiction in music of the Victory At Sea, the concert was one to be remembered for a long time to come. The performances were not the only ones, for in addition to the Founder’s Day concert, the band played at Inde¬ pendence Hall in celebration of Law Day, and also at the Phila¬ delphia Zoo. The officers, captain George Egler, first lieutenants Bernard Shockowitz and Malcolm Zerbe, and second lieutenants George Westfall, Phillip Newton, and Gary Crumling would gratefully like to commend Mr. Robert Morrison for his patience and untiring efforts to make the Concert Band the good musical organ¬ ization it turned out to be. We shall miss him. { 23 )► Swing ltsiml First Row, Left to Right: N. Perry, A. tiuchta, G. Campisi, N. Stephan, D. Merdiuszew Second Ron : R. Davies, W. Murray, R. Fenstermacher, M. Zerbe, R. Hamilton, P. Newton, G. Egler Third Row: G. Anhorn, C. Davies, J. Begosh, R. O’Donnell, G. Guattare When t ' he present Cavaliers began in March of last year, they were faced with the seemingly impossible task of building an entirely new band from only five experienced members. Needed were a complete saxo¬ phone section, another three trombones, additional drummers, and one more trumpet to fully fill all the places left vacant by the preceding class. Needless to say, hard work and continuous practice were required in training the new members, many of whom were forced to learn to play instruments which they had never before attempted. The long hours of constant rehearsing definitely paid off when the Cavaliers played at their first dance in March, 1962, and pleasantly surprised the somewhat skeptical juniors attending the affair. From that time on, the band has developed and improved to such an extent that each new player is now perfectly know¬ ledgeable and skilled in his instrument, and the band works as one harmonious instrument. With the Cavaliers’ theme song, Stormy Weath¬ er, the dances would usually get under way. Other num¬ bers which often continue to highlight the dances include such memorable tunes as Sing, Sing, Sing; Lul- lahye of Birdland; Peter Gunn; the twist version of Basin Street Blues ; theme from M-Squad; Star Dust; the snappy cha-cha-cha, Peanut Vendor; and of course such old favorites as Moonlight in Vermont. When the last strains of the Cavaliers’ theme faded away at the junior dance in the early part of 1963, captain George Egler, and the only other seniors, Phillip Newton and Malcolm Zerbe said their adieux to the band. 24 ] • Social Life Standing Left to Right: Mr. Emil Zarella, Mr. Joseph T. Wilemar. SeJted: Mrs. Emil Zarella, Miss Miriam McGhee, Mrs. Joseph T. Wileman " The Girardian, the gentleman” has been a familiar phrase heard often around Girard and even on the outside. Behind this typical Girard cliche, lies a social training which extends back to the first grade, one which is officially taught in our freshman year as Social Guidance with Miss Miriam McGhee. Who among us could forget those first awkward stumbles which were supposed to represent a dancing step in the tenth grade dancing class with Miss McGhee and Mr. Keenan? After this ten-week-boot-camp-type of learning how to manipulate our feet correctly, we were given our first test — the Sophomore Coke Party. Here we fumbled and stumbled through the motions of dancing, had our embarrassing moments, renewed some degree of courage, and left more confidently than we had entered. From the Sophomore Coke Parry, we launched to two other coke parties, three Junior Dances, three Senior Dances, four Cadet Dances, four Canteens, two House Parties, innumerable teas, Carson, and Lan- kenau Dances. All these events were available to those who chose to participate, providing many enjoyable and refreshing hours. For the possession of our savoir-faire, we are greatly indebted to Miss Miriam McGhee for her unflagging efforts to make our life at Girard more enjoyable and proper. We are also indebted to the mem¬ bers of the Girard staff who helped us become aware of the proper way of treating and dealing with others. A 25 Seminar Left to Right: A. Cohen, J. McCullough, S.

Flaherty, B. Sho:kowitz For the past two years, some select members of our class have been exposed to the finer and more essential elements of life at Saturday meetings of the Seminar. They have been exposed to the profound ele- m.nts cf music, art, literature, science, and history. The sessions have been moderaed by such fine men as: Dr. Guy Marriner, Mr. Jack Bookbinder, Dr. Morris Wolf, Mr. Thomas McHugh, and Mr. Benjamin Rothberg. The topics discussed were both varied and interesting. They ranged anywhere from a study of modern art or the great composers to the understanding of human nature from examinations of historical events. The boys who attended these discussions began to take an interest in them merely because they were proud of the erudition they accumulated from listening to the moderators. As time progressed, however, the ideas presented by the moderators began to have more than surface value and raised questions that often transmuted young inexperienced participants into maturing individ¬ uals possessing an awareness which enabled them to strive for an understanding of the essence of their immediate existence, and of their aspirations for eternal existence. This searching has instilled into their lives a fulfillment which elevates them from the superficial, animalistic plane of human life which has tragically enveloped a large portion of our modern world and which is extant because of man’s " advancements” of civilization. They have most likely experienced mental distress from attempting to transcend their existence above an animalistic plane, but this distress is ultimately overwhelmed by an obscure, profound consum¬ mation of life, the contentment of comprehensive understanding. The boys of the Seminar would like to convey their deepest thanks to Mr. Benjamin Roth¬ berg for the interest he has taken in them and for the hard work he has devoted to the Seminar meetings and the other extra activities which he has provided. 26 )► World Affairs i ' oiniril First Row, Left to Right: M.

Blithe Since September, 1961, when Girard began sending representatives of the Class of 1963 to the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia, these members have made outstanding contributions to this activity. In previous years, Girard has always managed to place some boy on the seven-man elective body which governs the council. This year, Steven Brandschain and James McCullough were elected to the student council, me legislative body that considers and decides the topics to be discussed at the various forums. Other positions of leadership like table leader of a discussion group have been given to Girard students. Some of the subjects discussed in the council meetings were: The Atlantic Community; The Impact of DeGaulle on the Western Alliance; The Foreign Aid Program; The Recent Excur¬ sions of Red China into India; and Cuba. The value of these talks lies chiefly in the better under¬ standing of the world’s problems and how they can be improved in the light of young Americans. At the World Affairs’ Model United Nations, Girard, representing Algeria, participated actively in its functioning. The delegates to the assembly were: Daniel Perkins, Algeria’s repre¬ sentative to the India-Pakistan border dispute committee; James McCullough, Algerian repre¬ sentative to the special committee of U. N. assessments; Steven Brandschain, deputy at the special committee on the question of Southern Rhodesia; and Thomas Hill, Algeria’s legislator on the com¬ mittee on the Union of South Africa. Hill brought a resolution condemning the Union of South Africa’s racial policies before the entire assembly for vote, but it was defeated. As sponser, Mr. Emory Wagner must be commended for his interest and for the inval¬ uable time he devotes to this area of extra-curricular education. 4 21 h Wee Club First Row, Left to Right: G.

Guattare not shown) Only hard work and many hours of practice could, and did, produce one of the better Glee Clubs and Choirs ever to sing for Girard. This constant, concentrated rehearsing did not fail to reap the rewards of satisfaction derived from a concert well done. One such concert was most certainly the Christmas Con¬ cert, for in it, such selections as the processional, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, O Holy Night, and the ever popular Sleigh Ride received overwhelming approval by the audience. Also beautiful were the vocal adaptations in the pageant of John the Juggler, without which the pageant would have lost a great deal of its effect. The Spring Concert was much like the Christmas pro¬ gram, for it roo was thoroughly enjoyed. The numbers sung were the Negro spirituals, Go Down Moses, Nobody Knows the Trouble I ' ve Seen, Swing Low, Sweet Chariot and Little David, Play on Your Harp. In addition to the annual Girard performances, the Glee Club and Choir sang at the Sheraton Hotel, the Valley Forge Chapel, and on radio WCAU’s Youth on Parade. When they sang for the Guild of Organists, an organization of choir directors from the Philadelphia-New Jersey area, there were only complimentary remarks on their commendable job. Of course, what would the Sunday chapel services be like without their stimulating and inspiring anthems? The members of the choir sincerely wish to thank Mr. Anthony Falatico for his patient work and Miss Juliette E. Stacks for her work as accompanist. The officers, President Thomas Hill, Vice-President Thomas Keenan, and Secretary-Treasurer George Westfall deserve praise for their sacrifices to the Choir.

Many times the work of the club is taken for granted; but, where would the Girard News and the Corinthian be without the time and skill put into the processing of pictures for these publications? The seniors in the club are; John Dutchman, president; Morgan Hancock, vice- president; Charles Riddle, secretary-treasurer; John Cecot, Alfred Morgan, and Edward John¬ son. Besides working on photography, the club members converted an empty room in Mariner Hall into a dark room.

MacGREGOR Director of Secondary Education Dear Seniors, You are the foster sons of Stephen Girard, whose influence and generosity have continued for more than a century to guide your lives. This is not the result of chance. It is rather the product of his greatness. Now that you are leaving after your years of growing from a newbie to a stalwart senior, I hope that you take with you one of the founder’s shining qualities, a deep sense of appreciation. This means simply that you must add positive value to all that he has given you. As a merchant, as a banker, and as an humanitarian, he contributed mightily to his adopted country. He was willing to jeopardize his life for his fellow citizens in the yellow fever epidemic; he wnstintingly supported the government of the United States when it was in serious financial stratts; he has given you and thous¬ ands of other boys the care and education which have filled your days with meaning. In sum, he took what he found, made it better, and we have benefited. You can have no better example than his. When you leave us, take whatever confronts you—in your work, in everything you do or say, however difficult it may seem—and add positive value to it. Sincerely yours, 30 j ' 31 } In the life of a young man the most essential thing for habpiness is the gift of friendship. —Sir William Osler Tin iUi K 32 of Remember this also and be ivell persuaded of its truth; the future is not in the hands of fate but in ours. 33 } —Jules Jusserand Student Body President JOSEPH FRANCiS FLAHERTY JOE1 1246 Faulkner Street Pittsburgh 4, Pa.

During this time I have served as your Student Body President, and I hope I have served you faithfully. When I look back, however, I see how much better all of us could have done. We could have improved in cur studies, been more considerate of ocher people, and conducted our¬ selves more as Girardians should. This is all in the past now though, and we must look toward the future. We, the Class of 1963, now leave Girard and go out into the world for which she has prepared us. You, the underclassmen, still have some years left at the Hum. This advice I leave to you: Elect good strong leaders, trust and follow them; be attentive and respectful to your teachers and housemasters; and finally, be loyal to your school and yourselves. There are, of course, always changes and ad¬ justments to be made in light of new hopes and past experiences. You have the wonderful privilege and responsibility of improving Girard for yourselves and for those who follow you. May Girard continue to live as the ideal envisioned in the mind of her Founder and the hearts of her children.

Upon leaving Girard, we shall leave behind some of rhe fondest friends and memories we shall ever know and take with us the traits of fine character which have been instilled in us. We have learned to respect that which demands our respect, to live closely together, and to cultivate our minds, bodies, and interests; but most importantly, to deal fairly with others by esteeming their desires as highly as our own. For all this and more, we shall ever be indebted to Girard, for she has set us on route to a happy prosperous future. What we owe to her we shall never be able to repay. All that she asks of us in return for all she has given is that we transpose into our future living the code Girard has given us, to uphold it in such a way that our every action will validate the fine standing of this school. In these past years we have come to be closer than brothers. The friend¬ ship and respect we have gained for each other will remain with us the rest of our lives. I trust that each of us will go on to lead a life which will do justice to what we owe to our families, to Girard, as well as to each other. I thank you sincerely for the support and warm amiability you have shown me. I hope we will always remain as attached to each other and to Girard as we are now. May God be with you in every endeavor and grant you the happiness, success, and fulfillment of life that each of you deserves.

Lorenz Coming into the season with no returning lettermen this year’s soccer team still hoped for a respectable season. Their hopes were not fulfilled, however, as the team went on to complete one of the most disastrous seasons in Girard history, two wins and eleven losses. The squad was admittedly better than their record indicates. This is shown by their extreme¬ ly close, 1-0, loss to a strong Upper Darby team, which later went on to the PI A A State Champion¬ ship. Standouts in this poor season were Jim Poncavage, goalie, who received many a compliment from opposing coaches after the games; Jim Henwood, right halfback; and Bob Norton, right wing. The most memorable highlights of the soccer season in¬ cluded the games with the Annapolis plebes, West Chester State freshmen, and Northeast Catholic. Although the team was over¬ powered 5-0 by the unusually strong Navy team, they did man¬ age to give West Chester a stiff taste of competition despite their 2-1 loss. The 3-0 defeat to Northeast Catholic was not a true picture of the team’s ability, for rain and mud greatly ham¬ pered skillful play. The team would like to express its sincere thanks to Coach Wolstenholme for not giving up on us, and thus not let¬ ting us give up on ourselves, throughout this losing season. He was a fine example for all of us.

Rothberg Fencing With the slash of the saber, and the clang of the epee, the fencers fought their way to a suc¬ cessful undefeated season. The three senior muskateers composed of Alfred Stockburger, John Scherer, and Captain Otto Peters formed the backbone of the team, leading the fencers to their six win, no loss record. Because of unfortunate circumstances, the Yale Trophy slipped through the fingers of the team, but they continued to put forth all their efforts to make a good showing. We are proud of their placing fifth in this highly competitive contest. How they maintained their high morale under a serious handicap exemplifies Girard spirit and determination in all athletic events. With foil in hand, Captain Otto Peters fenced to a fif¬ teen win, three loss individual record. Backing him up were John Scherer in the sabre division with a sixteen win, one loss record, and Alfred Stockburger in epee with his nine win, six loss personal season record. The team’s only undefeated mem¬ ber was Junior, Dimitri Merdiuszew, who finished the season with seventeen wins. Despite these accomplishments, the sup¬ porting members of the team are really the ones who make a team a success or failure. This year was no exception. Men like Richard Maialetti, Wayne Koch, and Paul Ferry were of great help, but of more importance is the fact that these are the men who will represent Girard in the future. The team and the students of Girard would like to thank Mr. Benjamin Rothberg for his services to our famed fencing team. His great talent as a coach is one of the major qualities which made our team great. School Boys Tournament Girard 1st Girard 19 — Northeast 8 " 18 — Edison 6 " 15 — U. of P.

Murray Wrestling Since wrestling has always been a truly popular sport at Girard, our reputation as a wrest¬ ling school has grown tremendously within the eleven years of its existence here. Because of this name we have built in wrestling circles, many schools consider it a real achievement to beat us. Starting on this year’s team were six returning lettermen on whose efforts the team was built: Richard Murray, Robert Norton, John Michaluk, John Maleno, Frederick Schiavo, and John Begosh. Co-Captains Bob Norton and John Michaluk kept the team alive and working by serving as sincere, untiring examples of determined effort throughout a grueling season. The 1962-63 seasonal record of 5-5-1 is somewhat beneath par for Girard, but needless to say, the team had some difficulties. The lack of depth and var¬ sity experience of certain weight classes and the steep com¬ petition received from such schools as Haverford, Bryn Athyn, and Hill School made a winning season much more difficult. There was, however, one significant record set by this year’s team and that was with Malvern Preparatory in which Girard made eleven consecutive take-downs, pinned eight out of twelve op¬ ponents, and shut out Malvern 52-0. This was the first such shut¬ out in Girard wrestling history. At the Episcopal Tournament, Girard advanced eight men to the semi-finals and six to the finals with good chances of taking first. Only John Maleno took first place in the tourna¬ ment and this for the second year in a row. Despite this, Girard had to settle for second place behind Haverford and followed by Bryn Athyn.

Flaherty not shown) Basketball The Girard College basketball team began the 1962-63 season with one new coach, two re¬ turning lettermen, a lack of height, and a stiff schedule. Coach Charles “Chick” Downham took this somewhat inexperienced group of players and taught them to play a slow, deliberate game with the accent on working for the “good” shot. In this manner the team hoped to eliminate the need for a great deal of offensive rebounding. Defensively, the hoopsters hoped to outhustle the other team and substitute good position and finesse for height in getting the ball off the boards. The team’s first win came against Coach Downham s alma mater, Germantown Academy. The hoopsters simply " outdeliberated” their opponents and won by the low score of 29-21. From that time until the much-anticipated Alumni game, there was a victory famine on the Girard court. Even in beating their former teammates, the dribblers needed an overtime period before win¬ ning on a last-second shot by Rich Muller, 38-36. Two of the most difficult losses to take were to the Haverford School 30-28, and to Friends Central, 49-46. High scorers for the season were: Joel Dempsey, 115 points; Rich Muller, 91; and Captain Joe Flaherty (who missed the last two games of the season because of an injury) 59 points. Other players who performed commendably were Tom Hill and Bob O’Donnell. This was O’Donnell’s first year on the team, and he displayed considerable improvement throughout the season. Next year’s squad promises to be much stronger, with the two top scorers and four other lettermen returning. A word of thanks must go to coaches Charles Downham and Lee Ammer- man for their patient efforts to make us a better team. - Chestnut Hill - Friends Central - Germantown Academy - Haverford - Williamson - Bryn Athyn - Episcopal - Perkiomen - Valley Forge - Westtown - Alumni - P S D.

Crumling Swimming This year saw one of the most experienced swimming teams go through what was probably the roughest schedule the team could possibly have encountered. Hard luck and important disquali¬ fications, rather than lack of depth hindered the " tankmen” as they piled up a 2-10-2 record. Co-Captains Jim Hartman and Roy Achmoody, as well as William Miller and Alan Yar¬ brough, did their best to become an indomitable nucleus of the team, but lack of depth and interest proved to be too much to overcome. An outstanding performance was turned in by Jim Hartman with a record total of 116 points, the 100-yard freestyle record of 54.1 seconds, and the 50-yard freestyle record of 24 seconds flat. William Miller also performed excellently, as he shattered the pool breast stroke record once and the " Hum” record six times. His final official clocking was 1:09.4 seconds, five seconds lower than his time one year ago. Very few teams produced divers who could match the skill and proficiency Roy Achmoody displayed, and even fewer were able tjo outdo the medley relay team of Ray Merese, Bill Miller, Alan Yarbrough, and Roy Achmoody. Their best time in this event was 1:56.6 seconds, only three-tenths of one second from the Girard record. The members of the team would like to extend their most grateful thanks to Mr. Robert Gibson for the excellent job he did in coaching the team.

I know you’re tired but you have to keep working.” These harsh but reassuring words became a common command for many members of this year’s track team. The term " workout” took on a great deal of significance this season, and its meaning was synonymous with running. This year’s track season started with expectations of a good record and the season ended with an excellent one. The large number of returning lettermen formed the core for the team around with Coaches Perazzelli and Gibson built. The trackmen started the season with a “cold” meet against a tough Episcopal squad; but after they were " warmed up,” the next three competitors fell easily under the fast spikes of the Hummers. The cindermen’s second loss came against the Perkiomen School by the heartbreaking score of 50-49. Then after placing Germantown Friends in the loss column, the workhorses of the track squad turned their spikes toward Hav- erford, our arch rivals on the playing field, and succeeded in tying them. The leadership of the team was in the hands of a tri¬ captainship, consisting of Phillip Newton, Robert O’Donnell, and Charles McCullough. We are greatly indebted to Mr. Bruce Perazzelli and Mr. Robert Gibson for the great job they did.

Perazzelli Cross Country 1962 marked the Cross Country team’s third season as a sport at the Hum. At first the squad was surprisingly large, but within two weeks, it was reduced to a stalwart few. It had been apparent that the endurance and stamina necessary for this rigorous sport elim inated those who anti¬ cipated little work, leaving only those genuinely interested and capable. With a mixture of new members possessing great potential, a small core of experienced road- runners, and a new coach, the team forged out th e best record since its birth. Rain, mud, near freezing temperatures, and a heavy dosage of hills added to the already challenging six-day workout of overdistance, miles, half-miles, and quarter-miles. Despite these physically demanding conditions, the team persevered to form a .500 record. Unfortunately the team experienced many " ups” and " downs” on the record books as well as on the courses, as it dropped its first two meets before finally breaking into the win¬ ning column. Although the scores of the team’s losses appear somewhat one-sided, they fail to show the 100% effort exerted by each member of the team. The seniors, Charles McCullough, Flether Brown, Phillip Newton, John Michaluk, and Malcolm Zerbe served as fine examples of dedicated athletes and hard workers for the younger boys who are destined to take their places next year. Coach Bruce Perazzelli must be commended for the fine leadership and guidance he gave us. J 42 — Episcopal 42 yi — Williamson 15 — Friends Select 17 — Episcopal J.V.

Downham Basolisill This year’s baseball team, led by Captains Tom Brisky and Howard Chaundy, had to start from scratch with only three returning lettermen and a new coach, Mr. Charles Downham. With a slow start, the team lost to Benjamin Franklin and West Catholic. These first two games started the Hum nine on the wrong foot, but they came back to beat Germantown Friends, 4-0, on Tom Brisky’s four-hitter and fourteen strike-out pitching spree. After a loss to Valley Forge, 3-2, the team beat our arch rivals, the Haverford School, 10-1. This game proved to the players that they had what it takes to make a strong team. The highlight of the game came in the half-hour-long fifth inning in which the Hummers scored eight runs. The Hum nine set a new record in the next game by scoring 22 runs and romping P. S. D. who managed to score 4 runs. During the season our pitcher, Tom Brisky, was scouted by the New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers, and the Los Angeles Dodgers. It seems that soon the baseball fanatic of our class will step up to greater heights and will be playing major league ball. This year was Coach Downham’s first year as a coach at Girard, and he did a fine job of taking his new squad through a good season. The loss of five starting seniors will hurt the 1964 team, but with as much hard work as displayed by this year’s team, they will come out on top.
