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 ]
