Class of June 1965 (3n cztf-fih. zzciatio n For ten years we have lived and studied in the school which you provided, a school that is our home and our way of life, in truth our Alma Mater. During these years when we have needed help, it has been given gladly and generously. In your words our teachers have " taken pains to instil in the scholars the purest principles of morality;” and we the Class of 1965, soon to leave this school, will do our best to " evince benevolence to our fellow creatures.” We believe that your school has given us the foundation for a good and fruitful life. Since the creation of Girard College, there have been great changes socially, economically, and politically, but the principles of morality, emphasized in your provision for us, have not changed. They have stood the test of time for more than one hundred years. To help us meet the challenges that lie ahead, your instructors have given us good health and in¬ quiring, disciplined, and descriminating minds. When we walk away, we intend to be good citizens who will strive to make our country stronger and better. We know our needs; we have established our purposes and we have absorbed " a love of truth, sobriety, and industry.” Looking back through the years we feel deeply a profound appreciation for your beneficence. Your beliefs have become a part of us. It is difficult for us to leave, but we are proud to be Girardians. We can only say that whatever we do in the future we shall try to carry on your ideals and by our lives and deeds be a true expression of your living legacy . . . Our deeds shall be our lives. of 496$ doxin th i an GIRARD COLLEGE PHILADELPHIA, PA. EDITORS Vincent Cavacini, Richard Fenstermachcr ART EDITORS Paul A. Ferry, Robert P.

West EihI The West End was the take-off of our Girard " marathon.” As " newbies” we found and made our friends, shared our pleasures and possessions, and learned the art of living to¬ gether. These were the happy-go-lucky days when we had neither cares nor worries, nothing to interrupt our fun, except the occasional Left to Right: Mrs. Lawrence L. Mervine (Miss Nancy E.

The trading of baseball cards, and playing " leanies” and " matchies” the wild water-bomb fights and the muggers of " secy” 10, the snow¬ ball forts and battles, and our races to the top of the coal pile, will be some of the adventures all of us will long remember. On the light side there were our gardens where we planted rad¬ ishes, onions, potatoes, carrots, and anything else that would grow. We saw many " housies” come and go, among them was Mr. Julian whose pitch¬ ing skill kept us in awe during showers. This was also the time of our Halloween Parades when everybody wanted to be a hobo. J unie was our first chance to be waiters and eat like the biggies. sting of Mr. Sweigart’s shovel. We’ll always re¬ member the walks to breakfast, the Saturday afternoon movies, and the wonderful hours of play. In " Westie” we had our first Hum ginnies the kite contests, the visits of the Good Friends Monster which always kept Mr. Brasner full of stories. Who will ever forget the old sayings " I’m as round as a penny and I weigh a ton; that’s why my name is Mr. Pennington, or " Here’s a nickel and there’s the sum; my name’s Mr. Nicholson.” Yes, it was the good life. Junior School Up the road, up to " Junie,” where we began to know the unity of belonging to one " secy” and the competition of " secies” in intramural, where the " govies” mothered us with firmness and with sympathy; where we learned that we had to take care of ourselves.

For five years our lives have centered in the high school. We have been guided, inspired, molded, taught, punished and educated. To the faculty and ad¬ ministration who have lived with us through these years we gratefully express our applica¬ tion. MhIiIIc School Our Middle School years introduced us to a firmer but friendly classroom atmosphere where we began to realize that we were at school for a purpose. The fundamentals of lan¬ guage, arithmetic, science, and history became a serious study in preparation for the demands of high school work. The quality of our accom-. plishment and the essentials of good character were stressed. Sports began to play an impor¬ tant part in our lives. We were on top of the world. We were soon to rise to the status of " biggies” with all its wonderful meanings. Left to Right: Mr. Maillardct, Mr. W. Zeil, Mrs. McDaniel, Mr. Sungenis. { 9 ] jCettex 3xom DPis.

MacGregor c (? aM o ' 965: As your teachers and helpers we have striven through the years to give you the qualities and concepts which will nourish the full and good meaning of your lives. What you do in the future will be the meaning of our success. We hope that you will remember us. In all our classes we have tried to teach you to stand firm and confident in times when standards waver and when our democracy is endangered by indifference. We would like to learn that, you place beliefs in what is right above success and security, and initiative above comfortable recognition. More than ever before in our history you must realize that the survival of our way of life is founded on reason and truth not force and deception. If you are one of the majority, have the patience and tolerance to live reasonably with the minority. Be a man of sound convictions who is willing to listen and hear intelligently. There will be days fraught with difficulty in many forms. They do not occur by chance; they exist to teach us that the essence of the good life must be earned and cannot be given. We sincerely wish you sound health and satisfaction, and thank you for all you have done for us. Sincerely yours, a $. r Mac ' fji } 4 10 ) Soccer Back Row, Left to Right: Ron Graves, F.

Winning three of their last four games against strong opposition, the varsity soccer team turned in a creditable 7-7 record, the best in three years. Imbued with drive and fine team spirit every player worked hard through the season. Defen¬ sively the team was outstanding, but offensively it lacked the effective scoring punch that could have created a brilliant record. The games with the Navy Plebes, West Chester, George School, and West Catholic were excit¬ ing and memorable. The team was honored by the selection of George Claxton, co-captain, as a member of the All-City Soccer Squad. Bill VanBuskirk and Ron Graves were chosen for honorable mention on the same squad. The squad is grateful to Coach Wolstenholme for the spirit that his coaching created in us and for the improvement in our abilities. He never let us give up. We are also appreciative of the dili¬ gent devotion of our manager Don Carlson.

The inexperienced Cross Country team this year trained seriously and sincerely. They bettered the ' 63- 64 record and ended the season with a three and three record and a ninth place in the George School Invitational Meet. The outlook for the team’s future is bright. The team can attribute some of its success and its hopes for the future to the sizable depth. It en¬ joyed the largest turnout since its birth a few years ago. Last year’s team consisted of nine seniors. The present team consisted of one senior, one junior, five sophomores and fifteen b oys from the eighth and ninth grades. With this group the next four years should produce excellent results. The road runners worked hard and long all fall to produce a winner. " We must run on,” must have been their motto; for the harriers kept running whether there was snow, sleet, rain or freezing temperatures. There is not a more dedicated team on campus. They have earned our praise.

On September 28, the Juniors and Seniors gathered in the Wisconsin Pavilion at noon. They were given freedom to wander at will until 4 P.M., when they again assembled at the Illinois Pavilion and were off again until bus time for the trip back to the Hum. It was a day crowded with fascination: the remarkably life¬ like android of Abraham Lincoln the magnificent Pieta in the Vatican exhibit, the Coca Cola Tower of light, helicopters flying overhead, the beautiful fountain display and above all the people, people from everywhere. Most popular were General Motors, Ford, Bell Telephone, and General Electric exhibitions. One day was not enough to absorb very much of this gigan¬ tic display of the world and its achievements, but it did expand our horizons and give us a sense of what is or may be our way of life in the future. It was a wonderful day from the beginning to the end. We all express to the College our gratitude and thanks for this exciting and wonderful experience. D. Dougherty, V. Cavacini, M. McElvarr, M.

The generally socially-shapeless boy of the ninth grade, which is now the graduating class of 1965, has been moulded, directed and taught in the patterns of correct social form by our devoted and indefatigable social directress. Miss Miriam McGhee. Not until the end of the tenth grade was there any obvious indication that we were learning. Dancing les¬ sons under Mr. Walter Keegan lifted us from adolescent awkwardness to reasonably confident gracefulness which we exhibited at the coke parties and class dances. With this background we moved into the colorful M” Minam McGhee social events of the junior year with hope and anticipation, and we were not dismayed. Class dances, canteen dances, the military ball, the house party, and the faith and work of Miss McGhee created a new ' world of pleasure. We were growing up. In our senior year w F e rose to the level of the " Girardian the Gentleman,” no longer shy or fearful, and made the most of numerous dances and parties which we shall never forget. We deeply appreciate the friendly and helpful support of our hosts and hostesses, Mr. and Mrs. William E. Focht, Miss Juliet E. Stacks, and Dr. James D. White. We also express our sincere thanks to Miss McGhee who guided us through these years. 15 h Class Poll Friendliest Claxton Wittiest . Davies Class Clowns. .

The 1964-65 wrestling team set not records nor won any championships, yet it was a remarkably good squad, because each member has satisfied himself by contributing his best effort. What was lacking in experience was counter-balanced by the spirit and desire to win, and the earnest willing¬ ness to work and work hard. There were only three returning lettermen. The team consisted of Robert Dever William Lock¬ ard, Dennis Dougherty, John Lockard, Richard O ' Brien, Leo Garbalski, Ronald Graves, Richard Fen- stermacher. Daniel Jayjock, George Claxton, William VanBuskirk, and Robert Davies. With the election of Ronald Graves and Richard O’Brien as team captains and under the excellent coaching of Mr. David Wolstenholme, the team never gave up. Special mention must go to Donald Carlson and Glen Faltz who were managers of this year’s team. .,[ 18 Itaskollisill Back Rote, Left to Right: R. Gill, T. Holod, G. Schied, P. Dempsey, M. Maialc.

Under the direction of our new coach, Mr. Anthony Stys, the hoopsters hopefully began the sea¬ son with two returning lettermen. Ineligibility and lack of experience crushed these hopes but not the tenacity and faith of the coach or the team. A record of nine losses and only two victories symbolizes a constant struggle. Coach Stys experi¬ mented with 3-2-1 and the 1-2-2 defense; he tried the zone press; he above all kept his team’s spirit up and earned their respect. When John Poliwacki was declared ineligible high hopes descended. He was our top scoring forward and came very close to establishing a Hum record, scoring 21 points against Germantown Friends. His mark was nearly doubled by a Valley Forge player who ran up 41 depressing points to hand the team a heavy loss. Through the season our average number of points per game was 35.9, contrasted with our oppon¬ ents’ 63.6. ’row Row, Left to Right: M. Keenan, W. Powell, T. Walker, K. Wren, J. Ferwerda, M.

The rest of the team was composed of eighth, ninth, and tenth graders, who had little or no experience. The beginning times at the start of the year were miserable, but this didn’t discourage them in the least bit. Exactly the opposite happened. It gave them the incentive and drive to better themselves. Every day after school, they could be seen do¬ ing distance swimming, followed by exhausting 25 and 50 yard sprints. All of this could not have been possible, were it not for the constant pushing, prodding, and spirit-raising pep talks of the coach, Mr. Robert Gibson. This is Mr. Gibson’s last year at Girard. We know he will be a vital part of the endeavors in which he part cipates. in the years to come. ( 20 ]► Front Row, Left to Right: D. Sims, J. Di Pietro, W. Darlcy, T. Molz, Mr. B. Rothberg, P. Ferry, D. Plank, T. Shaller, P. Collier. Second Row, Left to Right: N. Johnson. W. Linton, E. Troxell, R. Lanza. Under the driving leadership of Paul Ferry, and the coaching of Mr. Rothberg the fencing team slashed its way to a 5-3 record, to become the only winter team with a winning record this season. The team trained hard throughout the season. At the beginning, half of the boys had never fen¬ ced in competition. As a result of this deficiency in experience and the fact that the two best high- school teams in the State, Edison and Akiba Academy were our first opponents, we started the season with two defeats. The only loss after that was to the University of Pennsylvania freshmen, who went undefeated through their season. Because of this, the fencers did not feel that they were entirely slash¬ ed out. The closest meet was with Central High, where a shutout by our sabre team was needed to give us the 9-8 victory. The foil squad led by Paul Ferry, is to be especially commended on its fine perfor¬ mance throughout the season. It saved the day many times as it captured six or often seven of the nine bouts needed to win most of our meets. The musketeers took a third in the Yale Trophy Tournament this year, bettering last year’s four. This year’s fencers had two slashers win second place medals; these were Senior Paul Ferry, in foil, and Junior Tom Molz, in sabre. The other member of the three-man team was Charles McGuckin, in epee. Mr. Rothberg has earned the thanks and appreciation of the team. The fencers knew that behind every point they made was his faith. He taught them good sportsmanship and the finer points of fencing, a sport that this great coach established among Girard’s best. 10 10 7 9 9 12 12 Yale Trophy Tournament Opponent ' s 7 - Frankford 7 - Olney 10 - U. of P. 8 - Temple 8 - Central 5 - Dobbins 7 - Northeast 9 - Edison 11 - Akiba 3 rd Place :( 21 y Washington Trip That early Wednesday morning in February, saw the departure of many soporific, but enthusiastic Seniors leaving for Washington, D.C. We arrived in the Capitol City early that morning and made our first stop at the White House for a short tour, before checking in at our temporary home for the next three days, the plush Hotel Plaza. We boarded the buses that afternoon to visit Mount Vernon, the Marine Memorial, Arlington Cemetery, and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, where we were fortunate to see the impressive ceremony of the changing of the guard. After dinner that night we toured the National Archives, the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials which proved to be a most inspiring sight with the flood lights softly illuminating them in the evening quietude. Our last stop that night was the Library of Congress where Mr. Cunningham assured us that there was plenty to see, and there was. After an hour there we had free time on the town. The hummers really enjoyed themselves, as they explored this new frontier. On the following morning fifty-seven seniors’ eyes turned green as they saw millions of dollars being printed, cut, stacked, and sorted for disposal at the Bureau of Printing and Engraving. As we watched the money being counted, we soon realized where the term green thumb came from. The next attraction was a guided tour through the Pan American Union Building and the FBI Building where a G-man gave a demonstration on the effective¬ ness of the Tommy Gun and the 38-calibre revolver on paper gangsters. This year’s trip was an enjoyable and unforgettable experience for the seniors. We would like to thank Mr. Cunningham, Dr Zeil, Mr. Teal, and our bus drivers who helped to make this op¬ portunity a success. Also we would like to extend our sincere ap¬ preciation to our brothers of the Alumni, whose kind gifts made the trip possible. That afternoon, w ' e found ourselves the guests of the Honor¬ able Richard S. Schweiker, Congressman from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Congressman Schweiker’s informal and informative meeting with the class was followed by a tour of the Capitol. We were fortunate to see the Senate and House of Representatives in action. A speedy trip about the many Embas¬ sies located in Washington rounded out the afternoon’s activities. { 22 } - Baseball First Row, Left to Right: W. Van Buskirk, R. Fenstermacher, Mr. Warne, D.

Aglidian. Six veterans from the 1964 season made up the core of the 1965 squad under caoch Joseph J. Warne. Despite the scores so far the team has the potential of a strong outfit in batting, fielding, and pitching. The lineup consisted of Fenstermacher at first, Sklarski at second, Zink at short, Petrick at third, Dempsey behind the plate, Van Buskirk, Gill, and Graves covering the outfield. The pitching chores were filled in by Kopp, McCullough, and Gill. After dropping the opener to Haverford 2-1, the Hummers bounced back to capture their next two games, Episcopal 9-2, and Germantown 7-2. Then they slumped, losing three in a row to German¬ town Academy, St. Joseph’s Prep, and Valley Forge Military Academy. With a 5-2 score they toppled Chestnut Hill and as of this writing they have twogames still to be played. It is not a prepossessing record nor does it correctly reveal the hard practice, and the teamwork, nor does it reveal how Coach Warne has encouraged them and drilled them—never letting them give up. It was a good season under a good coach whose faith and leadership were appreciated. Track Front Row, Left to Right: B. Graves, R. Davis, W. Macllvain, M. McDonald, G. Claxton, F. Priolo, W.

Poliwacki, W. Erdman, D. Burleigh, E, Lentz, S. Singer, Mr. Gibson. With only four returning lettermen to form the nucleus of the 1965 squad, the cindermen started the season handicapped but with enthusiasm and high hope. For the first time three captains, George Claxton, Michael McDonald, and Richard Davis, were elected. Coach Robert W. Gibson was the men¬ tor for the squad. In the opening meet with Episcopal Academy the team suffered a 59-40 defeat, then endured a second loss to Germantown Friends 59-45. In their third meet they pulled out of the slump wdth a con¬ vincing 78-21 score over Friends Central. Germantown Academy squeezed out a close 51-48 victory by taking the last event. Then the team was overw ' helmed by a powerful Frankford High team 90-9. This depressing record is primarily the result of ineligibilities. Consistent scorers have been George Claxton in the hurdle events, with 45 points, Jim Dawson in the sprints, with 40 points, Mike McDonald in the pole vault, wdth 26 points, Rich Davis in the middle-distance events, also with 26 points, and John Poliwacki in the high jump, w-ith 21 points. With some hard work, the team hopes to even its record in the remaining meets of the season.

After a few weeks, the ’65 Seniors became accustomed to the privacy of their own rooms and the frequent ringing of the William Allen Memorial Chimes. Much of the success of our final year can be attributed to the firm guidance of our housemasters: Dr. Zeil, Dr. White, Mr. Pease, Mr. Teal, Mr. Erdenberger, Mr. Henry, and Mr. Petrillo. The " Hotel” was the background for our growth and our fun. It served as the set for a TV show, in which Paul Ferry, our future architect, was the star. Who will ever forget the meetings of the procrastination club, the " nightcaps,” the " midnight oil burners,” and the " card-sharks anonymous”? Not to be forgotten is the visit of the terrified secretary from Saronys’ and the visits from many of our ex-classmates. The trips to Washington and to the World ' s Fair, the White Supper, the Commencement Dance, that once-in-a-lifetime va¬ cation, “Bum-Week”, and Graduation were all memorable high¬ lights. Through every week of this our final year has been die grow¬ ing realization of the meaning and value of our friends. Looking back at our life in Girard, we may forget experiences, places, and things, but we will never forget our friends. 26 b You ' re gonna get burnt. No more throwball snowing.

A yearbook literally requires a year to compile and we of the Corinthian staff have found that a year of hard work, endless time, and real effort is necessary to pro¬ duce a finished product that is worthy of the name Co¬ rinthian. This year the staff was under the guidance of Mr. Caswell MacGregor who’s constant pressure and watch¬ ful eye helped us put this publication on the printing presses. Mr. Arnold Daffin made possible the printing of this book by his ceaseless efforts and his long hours in the Print Shop. Irvin Fisher contributed his talents by serving as our layout man, and as our information link between the printing and editing staff. Also Robert Chaundy and Samuel Singer worked steadily on the linotypes to meet our ever pressing deadline. The photography department of our staff consisted of Robert Haupt and William Murray who served us well, as they spent long hours in the darkroom to get the finished picture ready for the engravers. Their fine work is witnessed in the pictures you see within these covers. Our writing and editing staff this year worked con¬ scientiously to produce copy of quality and interest. On the writers staff were William Murray, Robert Burleigh, David Petrick, Ronald Wallner, Paul Ferry, Chuck Killen, Roy Hamilton, Robert Davies, Michael McElvarr, Dennis Dougherty, Robert Graves, Ronald Graves, Richard Gill, and Thomas Phelan. A year’s work is completed and another yearbook is published with our realization of the life within these walls. We hope that within these pages you will find a memorable treasure of this life. 50 ► Mr. A. Daffin: Mr. C. F.. MacGregor ((iniril Front Row, Left to right: V. Cavacini, D.

' ’ — William Cowpers Though William Cowper, the English Poet, lived long before Girard was founded, his novel description of a newspaper, is quite applicable to the Girard News. Life at Girard is certainly busy; it fluctuates; its several phases are of vast concern to the students. This, then, is the ob¬ jective of the Girard News: to " map out” the occurrences and fluctuations of this busy life and present them in a concise, in¬ formative, and appealing manner. Published tri-weekly, or as nearly so as possible, the Girard News provides Girardians with up- to-date facts, criticism, and information on both school and international happenings. The major addition to the paper this year was the " Polls ’N Politics” column, an informative public opinion survey taken by Tom Phelan for each edition of the News. The " Letters to the Editor” column was set aside for comments by both students and faculty, and the editorials re¬ flected the opinions and policies of the staff on various incidents and problems that evoke interest, and stimulate the Girard citizen. Guided and advised by Mr. Arnold Daffin, as sponsor, Robert Davies, this year’s editor, and the entire reporting and printing staff did a commendable job in their endeavors. Glen Faltz as¬ sisted Bob as Associate News Editor and Mike Tripucka as Busi¬ ness Manager, Chris Hoard as Distribution Manager, and Rich Fenstermacher as Sports Page Editor, all contributed greatly to the paper. Sam Singer, and Bob Chaundy as linotypists, and Jim Lerlo as layout man executed their jobs in a competent manner, thus assuring the high quality of the finished publication.

The National Honor Society offers a distinct challenge to each of its members, for they must strive conscientiously to uphold the standards and ideals stipulated in the purpose of the Society. Officers elected were, Robert Davies, Julian Skalski, and William Murray as the President Vice- President, and Secretary-Treasurer respectively. Mr. Albert H. Schoell, the sponsor of the Society for several years again served earnestly in that capacity. One of the very pleasant occasions for this group was the National Honor Society Dinner, held late in April, at the Inn, Alden Park Manor. Present with the members during this evening were Mr. and Mrs. Holland Heck, Dr. and Mrs. Karl Friedmann, Miss Miriam McGhee, and Mr. Albert Schoell. The Society members and the entire student body owe a debt of gratitude to Mr. Heck, who retires after 42 years of teaching at Girard, for it is the example of men such as he who has given direction to both the National Honor Society, to our school, and to Girardians through the years. •I ii ii ior-Soii ior Si m i mi r R.

From that time on it has pro¬ vided Girardians with a broader and deeper appreciation of the arts, an appreciation which will add fullness and meaning to their lives. In the field of music. Dr. George Rochberg and Bruce Mont¬ gomery of the University’ of Pennsylvania gave the boys a better insight in many aspects of music. Dr. Rochberg gave a penetrat¬ ing analysis of modern music. Mr. Montgomery, Director of Mu¬ sic Activities of the University of Pennsylvania, gave what prov¬ ed to be a most interesting and informative lecture on Musical Comedy in America. In art, we were honored to have Mr. John J. Liney, Jr., a well known cartonist and artist. Mr. Liney is the step-father of the celebrated cartoon strip " Henry.” His lecture presented many amusing and unusual facts about the field of comic art. Also speaking on art, Mr. William J. Dugan, a gradu¬ ate of Girard from the Class of ' 39 and a noted Philadelphia illustrator, spoke on " The Art of Illus¬ tration,” which was well-received by his attentive listeners. Our knowledge of outer space was increased by Mr. George E. Ruff, M.D., Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania, who spoke on " Man in Space.” " Tomorrow,” a special showing of a film dealing with various aspects of the problems and challenges of automation, was given by Mrs. Jean Hopper, head of Science Department of the Philadelphia Free Library. For a comprehensive view of the Fed¬ eral Drug Administration, the forum offered the boys a very worth-while and informative seminar entitled " The Law Behind the Label.” For those boys interested in die field of journalism, a lecture entitled " American Journalism of Today” was given by Dr. Frederic Hyde, of the University of Pennsylvania, which proved most helpful for those boys interested in this area. We would like to thank Mr. Rothberg for the time and en¬ ergy he spent in preparing and planning this year ' s schedule of excellent seminars. Our sincere appreciation will be reflected in the knowledge we have absorbed and its effects to our persona¬ lities and lives. 4 53 Concert llsiml tmm k ' v ' ' ' J tgj .

They remember with equal pleasure working with Mr. Morrison to make the contribution of the Concert Band a presentation of which they can be proud. The band of 1964-65 has lived up to this tradition. Their playing at the Christmas Concert was impressive and well received by the audience. They began with the lively Fan¬ fare and Capriccio by Schaeffer, followed by the Concert Over¬ ture composed by Robert G. Johnson and conducted by Captain John L. Baji. First Lieutenant Vernon R. Hamilton displayed his mastery of the trumpet by his performance in the Bride of the Waves. The concluding composition was The Toy Shop by Colby, a novelty presentation with a narration by William J. Murray. The Band again earned the plaudits of the audience in the Spring Concert in which Mr. Gilbert Johnson, first trumpet play¬ er for the Philadelphia Orchestra, as guest soloist played Carn¬ ival of Venice by Del Staigers and Inflammatus by Rossini. His performance was magnificent. In addition the Band played Sar- abande and Gavatte by Corelli and Hoopla, a piccolo solo com¬ posed by Morrison. Clarinet Escapade and excerpts from My Fair Lady by Lerner and Lowe were also highly appreciated. Participation in this activity has been a rewarding pleasure which will grow with our appreciation of good music in the future. 4 54 k- ■!« » rinli Front Row, Left to Right: D.

Through participation in the Glee Club, the Seniors this year have greatly expanded their appreciation and knowledge of the finer aspects of this creative art, choral singing. Under the most capable direction and leadership of Mr. Anthony Falatico and our accompanist, Miss Juliet Stacks, the Glee Club once again, more than adequately fulfilled its Sunday morning Chapel Service and traditional concert obligations with a high degree of precision and excellence. Assisting Mr. Falatico and Miss Stacks in these tasks were the fine group of student leaders including John L. Baji, Presi¬ dent ; Dennis P. Dougherty, Vice-President; and Peter E. Piro as our Secretary-Treasurer. The annual Christmas Concert, presented on December 17th and 18th was said by many people to be the best in many years. Among highlights of the Concert was; The Shepherd ' s Carol by Billings, Lo, How A Rose Ere Blooming by Praetorius, and Ring Those Christmas Bells by Levene. To the delight of the audience, John L. Baji, the Glee Club President, conducted a performance of Sleigh Ride by Anderson, which was an event not to soon to be forgotten. In addition to our Concerts here at Girard, the choir perform¬ ed at the Valley Forge Memorial Chapel and at the Annual Fac¬ ulty Dinner held in Founder ' s Hall. Only those who have struggled to create a worthwhile Con¬ cert can understand the value and the satisfaction which we have found and enjoyed in this organization.

Under the guidance of Lieutenant Colonel James Hamilton, and Master Sergeant Matthew McMillen, the battalion had another successful year. Cadet Major Charles Killen set the ex¬ ample for those under his command and provided the precison leadership needed for a military organization. Capably assisting Cadet Major Killen were his fine staff: George Claxton; Captain of Recruits; Richard O’Brien, Captain Quartermaster; and James Semple, Captain Inspector. The firing squad, consisting of Recruit Lieutenants Ronald Wallner, Julian Skalski, Robert Graves, and William Erdman, must be commended on their fine performance on Founder’s Day. The Color Guard was under the command of Sergeant-Major Dennis Dougherty and Sergeant-Quartermaster Richard Kostel- nick. The flag bearers, Francis Priolo, C. Richard Gill, Thomas Phelan and Harry Sampson proudly carried the colors. Cadets and officers of the battalion must also be congratulat¬ ed for the fine exhibition of their training on Founder’s Day. We have been privileged to receive this excellent training which is rare in many schools. We have carried on part of our great tradition with a pride in knowing we have done our part well. It is now up to those who follow to carry on this tradition of high caliber performance and sterling qualities of character. 56 j: llrSIIIISllM ' t ' lull Front Rou , Left to Right: R.

With the final curtain on May 14, the Dramatic Club clos¬ ed one of its many successful seasons under the superior and vital direction of Mr. Henry V. Andrews. Lady Gregory’s The Boy Dave, a powerful and touching story of an Irish orphan peasant struck the chord of the Christmas spirit and was a hit with the audience. William Murray as Dave, John Baji as Kate O’Cahan, Robert Burleigh as Nicholas O’Ca- han and Mike McElvarr as Timothy the butler played their roles superbly. The spring plays, The Boy Comes Home and The Ambush, were excellent productions which ap¬ pealed to the plaudits of the audience. The Boy Comes Home, an interesting and humorous story bas¬ ed on incidents in the life of a veteran returning to civilian life and almost forced to work in jelly factory, opened the even¬ ing with excellent performances by John Baji as Uncle James and Dan Buxhoeveden as Wheeles the Butler. In complete contrast the audience were moved to a serious mood when The Ambush, a dramatic and tense story of Civil War conflict, was presented in the second half of the evening. The fearful frantic search for a confederate spy in a Union camp kept everyone in suspense until the final curtain. William Mur¬ ray played the part of General Eldred with deep understanding; Robert Burleigh, Mike McElvarr, and Thomas Phelan portrayed the three commanding colonels. Finally we appreciate the privilege of having Mr. Andrews as our director and coach. 4 57 b »i Radio Program Front Row, Left to Right: V. Cavacini, D. Petrick, C. Hoard, J. Baji, R. Davies.

From this humble beginning the show has developed into an enlightening weekly series of news, views, humor, music, and diverse programs. WGC was originated and introduced by Mr. Henry V. An¬ drews, who still sponsors the activity today. Though he realized that a weekly radio show would hopefully entertain the students, Mr Andrews’ major purpose in creating WGC was to give inter¬ ested boys a chance to develop and display their writing and announcing skills. William Murray, the head announcer this year, has been assisted by Rich Fenstermacher, Bob Burleigh, Leonard Pishko, David Petrick, Tom Phelan, Matt Cory, Bob Chaundy, George Claxton, Rich O’Brien, Pete Piro, and Chris Hoard, who doubled as the electrical technician for the show. The director of writ¬ ers, Bob Davies, relied upon Ron Wallner, Tom Phelan, Leon¬ ard Pishko, Vaughn Ruppert, John Baji, and Bill Erdman, all of whom have done good work. The members of the WGC staff strived to maintain three standards this year: accurate and unbiased reporting, extend¬ ed coverage of underclass events, and " clean” humor. Regu¬ lar features of the weekly presentations were " the room of the week,” sports news and the " star athete” citation, " This week 1965,” various contests, concise national and interna¬ tional news summaries, and countless news items and special reports on the usual and unusual happenings at Girard. The staff has succeeded in creating original material and has upheld the standards created by Mr. Andrews. ♦{ 58 K World Affair Council Front Row, Left to Right: M. Galada, R. O’Brien, M.

This year the senior class did an excellent job in providing leadership for the 1964-65 World Affairs Council. William Mur¬ ray was chosen to be the president of the Model United Nations a distinctive honor. The forums blended right in with the times. Mr. Donald Barn- house, WCAU news analyist, spoke on Vietnam during one of the numerous crises there. Other lectures added to our in¬ creasing storehouse of knowledge concerning vital topics of the day. The lectures ranged from Vietnam to Cyprus, from socialism to control of nuclear weapons. In addition to these meetings some of our members attended the special Adult World Affairs Council where they heard an interesting and informative lecture on the " Present Political Mood of the United States.” This session took place just prior to the elections. We w-ere fortunate enough to hear Harry K. Smith and Gunnar Back both present their view-points on the matter. Our members volunteered their services in many projects of the Council. In the show ' called, Decision: The World Game,” five dif¬ ferent schools represented hypothetical countries. In the process of the game each country was required to project economic re¬ ports, make treaties, sign trade agreements, hold elections, and maintain a good defense, in short carry on all the functions of a real country. This show turned out to be a complete success with all saying they had fun and learned it is not as easy as it seems to run a country in the turmoil-filled world we have today.

The Student Center, managed by Robert Burleigh, has completed the year in the black, has added new services and new ' items and has had some needed refurnishing. The lounge and the store have been painted and the pool table has been recovered with new felt; counter tops have been covered with attractive tile. The snack counter has been expanded to include hot sand¬ wiches and appetizing pizza. An automatic vending machine made pens readily avaibable in the high school. In general there was a better selection of products at all counters. The Miscellaneous Department now ' sells a newly designed T shirts, jackets, sportshirts, wastebaskets, duffle bags and even plates. From earned profits the Center purchased a microscope and a set of slides to augment the new textbooks of the biology department. Also funds were donated to the social activities, the sports program, summer camp and other areas. A standard school seal was adopted for use on sweatshirts, souvenirs and other products. The graduating class and the school is indebted to Robert Burleigh, manager of the store. Leonard Pishko, bookkeeper. Michael Galada, assistant manager; Michael Tripucka, William VanBuskirk, and Samuel Singer, Counterheads. Irv Fisher and Richard Gill also worked hard in this area. Julian Skalski, Vaughn Ruppert and Paul Ferry contributed much in the way of decorative art. Finally we are all deeply appreciative of the long hours Mr. George Dunkle our sponsor has given to make this a sound worthwhile enterprise. [ 60 ■ $tud« k n Council Front Rou Left to Right: D.

The Student Council of 1964-65, under the guidance of Mr. Harold F. Holman, has been an effective organization. It has serv¬ ed as a channel for communication among students, the faculty, and the administration. It has given its members a realistic illus¬ tration of the fact that representative government can create a better life only to the degree that it accepts its responsibilities. Those who have been elected to this body have learned that there must be reasoned compromises in the solution of the problems confronting them. It is in brief a sound exhibition of democracy at work. Vincent Cavacini, who w as a capable and industrious president, also had the personality and resili¬ ence required to unify this council and give it a directed, purposeful meaning. Those officers who worked for and with him were Robert Davies, Vice President; Michael McElvarr, Recording Secre¬ tary; Dennis Dougherty, Corresponding Secretary; and Peter Piro, Treasurer. Although the Council did not fulfill all its objctives, it was successful in many. Identification cards were provided for all the High School students. The basis for a Student Court was form¬ ulated and this should soon become a fact. A Scholarship Trophy is the result of its effort. Much work has been done on both ' the Student Council Charter and the Student Handbook. A bulletin board to publicize school activities was set up in the high school. We feel that the 1964-65 Council did a commendable job and that their accomplishments have made Girard a better school. We feel certain that if each student gives his sincere support and cooperation to the new council and if the members accept their responsibilities honestly there will be even better work in 1966. 61 ] Swing Band Front Row, Left to Right: E.

Early in the spring of last year, the Majesties succeeded the 1964 Imperials as Girard ' s Dance Band. When the Imperials disbanded and last year’s Seniors had left the organization, Robert Davies, Roy Hamilton, William Murray, Thomas Davies, and Gary Amodeo were the few remain¬ ing musicians with any previous experience in the band. As an unorganized group, the boys were faced with the task of recruit¬ ing and shaping up eight new members in time for the 1964 Commencement Dance. Robert Davies was elected as Captain, and the students who joined the band were: Rich Fenstermacher, John Baji, Douglas Burleigh, Robert Ayjian, Steven Darley, Jay Silverman, Ernest Crane, and Elmer Taylor. In the beginning of this year, the Majesties took on Glen Faltz as their bass player, and William Powell replaced Rich as they received praise and commendation for their music from several who attended the affair. In the past year, the band purchased new music, new drum equipment, and several other needed accessories, and a renovated piano was installed in their practice room. Among the more pop¬ ular numbers in the Majesties’ repertoire were: Moon River, The Stripper, The Song from Moulin Rouge, What Kind of Fool Am I, Blue Velvet, and their theme song. Wonderland by Night. With long hours of practice in a relatively short period of time, the Majesties finally emerged as a competent organization, and did a fine job at the Commencement Ball. Like all other activities at Girard, much of the Majesties’ success was due to the sponsors, Miss Miriam McGhee and Mr. Charles Cunningham, whose support has been appreciated. Left to Right: N.

The members are grateful to Mr. Perley Pease, the sponsor, for his interest and support. itific nub Photography Club The members of the Rifle Club are devoted gun buffs who have had the privilege of having Capt. Stanley J. Wood, a 25-year Marine as their sponsor. Club officers for the year are: Mike Galada, President; Dan Buxhoeveden, Vice-President; Marc Pusey, Armorer; Vaughn Ruppert, Senior Range Officer. The " sharpshooters ' ’ annual Rifle Club Championship proved to be the highlight of the club’s season. After the smoke cleared away from those blazing guns the final tally was Mike Galada Champion, with 175 out of 200 points Dan Buxhoeveden was Match Champion with a 173. Vaughn Ruppert had 1st Match High Score of 172. All of the marksmen used small bore .22 caliber Remington target rifles in the competition. This year saw the addition of Win¬ chester rifles to the club’s arsenal, with which the club can continue to be the bull’s eye of " Hum " Clubs. Front Ron : D. Buxhoeveden, M. Galada.
