When a man has a few close friends he is indeed lucky, and he should be thankful. But when a man has 39 friends whom he may count as brothers, he has more than enough reason to be grateful, and he should tell everyone he knows just how grateful he is. It is for this reason then, that the CORINTHIAN is dedica¬ ted to each and every member of our Class, the Class of 1973. 1 MR. PHILIP W. HICKEY 3nA fppreci a ti on cjCetter Jrom Our [- resident Gayle K. Lawrence To the Graduates of 1973: VVith 12 years of formal education behind you, I hope you’ve learned something of what ed¬ ucation is about. It’s not cause to be haughty or snobbish, it’s no guarantee of happiness and success, it’s not a royal road to romance, and it should certainly be more than an avenue to a higher personal incoma Education is self- enlightement and self-renewal. It’s personal growth, I hope you’ll be¬ lieve, through greater understanding of one’s self, one’s cultural and natural environment, and of one’s place in the universe of time and space. Of course, not even the wisest man knows the answers to all these questions, but education is the beginning. Without education a human being is less humane, less understanding, less sensitive to the feelings of others and the nuances of life. Education should make one feel more compassion¬ ate toward others, less self- serving, a little humble in the presence of great men and women past and present, and determined to do all that one can to leave this world a little better than he found it. Wouldn’t you agree that education is discovery - -discovery of one’s self and the wonder¬ ful world that is ours? Discovery is adventure, and I wish each of you the kind of exhilarating life that is full of adventure. With personal effort and any luck at all, each member of the June 1973 graduating class should at some point in the fiiture discover his true self and come to know something of the meaning of life. Fare thee well.

All positive change is always good; but remaining, growing to that spot is always bad. Kingsley Amis 22 .J If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is real possesion in the changing fortunes of time.

Communication between the students and their represen¬ tatives is essential for the operation of a successful student government. This year’s Council did manage to establish effec¬ tive communication within the Student Body through numerous meetings held by our President, Steven Biondolillo. A solid constitution - one that insures stability and uniformity in student government - is also essential to a successful student council. With this in mind, our Council drafted a constitution. Although much work and waiting became involved in the effort, a constitution was finally ratified by the end of the year. As is the case every year, the Council worked with the D S. One major accomplishment was the gaining of the Seniors’ privilege to take their breakfast and dinner meals in the cafe¬ teria. Other Council endeavors included numerous campus clean-ups, and a pro¬ ject by which the Council utilized its budget to send a financially needy stu¬ dent home each month. Despite a few drawbacks, school morale has steadily risen this year. And if general trends continue, future councils will become more and more useful in helping to make Girard a bet¬ ter school.

Dill The Photography Club was organized and maintained this year by the hard work of its members. The club existed as a base organization for the Corinthian and also played an essen¬ tial part in the preparation of The Writing on the Walls. The main project of the club had humble beginnings early last spring when the Corinthian Committee decided there was a need for a collage to display a pictorial history of our various memorable occasions and candid shots of classmates. We en¬ deavored to do our best, and, in essence, we achieved our goal. Beginning the year without cameras or equipment was a major obstacle to overcome. With the assistance of Mr. Rocco P. Ser- luco, we were able to acquire two new cameras-and an assortment of lenses. Mr. Serluco acted as our part-time sponsor, and an able one at that. The club has been able to build an ade¬ quate assortment of equipment that hopefully will be used for many years to come. The members of the club were Glen Sutphin, President; George Cahill, Vice-President; Donald Thompson, Secretary; Jeffrey Dill, Treasurer; James Burns, John Malloy, and Jeffrey Trickett. 63 oocrO - i d 3JooHOI“D 1st Row Left to Right - Mrs. J.

Under the enthusiastic leadership of its editor, Kevin Feeley, and his hard-working staff the WOW again became an important channel for the expression of students’ ideas and opinions on a wide variety of topics - - local, regional and international. For the first time in recent years the student journal began to appear regularly, at monthly intervals. Moreover, it contained fresh new features: columnists, contests, coupons, reviews and literary articles, as well as the straight news stories about events tak¬ ing place within the school community. But the success of WOW this year would not have been possible without the unflagging energies of its many contributing writers and the welcome response of its many readers. Here’s hoping that next year’s Seniors can keep up the good work this year’s Seniors got started again. T H E w R I T I N G 0 N T H E A L L 64 1 st Row Left to Right - J. Dill, K. Feeley, J.

The sorrows of the first days and the joys of the last days (and many of the days in between) are affectionately recalled in this pictorial tribute to the class of 1973. Scan the leaves of this book and you will discover the lives of forty Gir- ardians, whom we think, have brought distinction to their school. The production of a yearbook has been an invariably hectic, often deeply moving, and thus a perpetually eventful experience. From the initial meeting last June through the final planning stages of the last pages, the seniors under the direction of Kevin Feeley and Mr. Rocco P. Serluco of the Print Shop have worked diligently and selflessly to produce the first yearbook in two years - a yearbook, we hope, that will not be greeted with chagrin after so many long, often quar¬ rel-ridden hours have been spent in the efforts to produce it. 65 n _T l HCO Z -HZ-3)0O 1st Row Left to Right - J .Dill, J.

Under the competent direction of Steve Biondolillo and John Sieling this Christmas production was quite a success. In June there was another production. This on the whole was more involved than the preceeding show, but the actors, under the fine direction of Pete Vasilou, exhibited excellent stagecraft on opening night. A special note of thanks must be given to Mr. Robert Green- berger and Ms. Mary Ruth Daniels who gave unselfishly of their own time to see that the plays went smoothly. It is the hope of the graduating class, as well as the Administration and faculty, that the younger students become interested in dramatics, as this is a very educational, exciting and constructive activity. □Demo o— 1 1 J 3HO varsity club 1 st Row Left to Right - D.

Baji When an organization experiences a change in leadership, such as this year’s retirement of Mr. Robert Morrison and the entrance of Mr. John Baji, it is often hard to cope with the change that the new leader makes. Usually it is necessary to wait a period of years to evaluate success, but this year the Concert Band didn’t have to wait to adapt to the new ways of Mr. Baji. They caught on right away. Determination was evident in every member and certainly it was in Mr. Baji. Because of this determination, the Concert Band progressed greatly. Evening rehearsals were held three times weekly to avoid interference with extra curricular activities after school - an improve¬ ment welcomed by every member of the band. The officers were William Harding, Captain; Anthony DeAngelis, First Lieutenant; Herve Mann, Second Lieutenant; and Donald Thompson, Ser¬ geant. Being the sole senior members of the band, it was truly up to these four to see that organization and order prevailed at each session. The Band found itself playing a great deal more concerts than it formerly had, including the Christmas and Spring Con¬ certs, programs for the younger students in Junior School, a Music Week Concert, Chapel Services, and various outside functions. The 1973 Concert Band had a pretty good year. Changes have been made, but they could only improve the band’s selec¬ tions of music and its performances. 68 oz CD —nozoO , 1st Row Left to Right - T.

Skiing at Girard began last year largely through the unselfish cooperation of Mr. Frank Sabol, who organized, directed, and carried out every facet of the program. We want to thank him for continuing his efforts this year. There were two different kinds of ski days this year. One was for the beginners, who were taken to Ski Mountain in Pine Hill, N.J. and given lessons by trained instructors. They also had time to practice and enjoy what they had learned. The skier with previous experience spent weekends at larger resorts, such as Elk Mountain, in upper Pennsylvania. The highlight was a trip to Vermont during Thanks¬ giving where we skiied at Mt. Madonna and Mt. Stowe. This type of program is very rarely found in schools and is most valuable as an introduction to a sport some of us may never have discovered. 69 DDcrO — CO 1st Row Left to Right - S. Biondolillo, D.

This was due in part to the fact that the club was at that time planning a trip to Russia. However, when the trip fell through many members went with it. Eight members stayed, and with these students the club continued to carry out its purpose of giving first-hand experience in world problems. Sponsored by Mr. Robert Long, who unselfishly gave con¬ siderable amounts of his own time to the group, trips were plan¬ ned and forums scheduled. These programs were both enjoyable and informative. The highlight of the year was the trip to New York. While we were sup¬ posed to go only to the United Nations, many members chose to take side tours, just to make the excursion interesting. The Club provided many interesting experiences, and the lessons learned will certainly be of great value to the members. 70 cocii O co o— - n - n] oruo 71 SOPHOMORE CLASS I. Lane - Vice- Pres. J.

Running so many miles each day is certainly not the most enjoyable thing to do; one may ask, why do they do it? They do it because they want to work, want to get into good physical condition. Cross-country means sweat, pain, and hard work. It is unique then that anyone can stick out the season. However, every year a squad of about fifteen students do stay with the team, and this past season was no different The team had a total of five returning lettermen - a good nucleus — and ten new runners. This team had a lot of talent, and this talent was fully brought out by Coach Doug Hess. Doug’s winning ways brought the runners through a very tough schedule with a 4- 4 record. He knows how to win and he gave eveiyone the confidence needed in order to do just that The co-captains were Dan George and Kev Feeley. It was their job to lead the team in whatever was done. The job was well carried out. The future too, is bright because there are many good young runners at Girard. If they continue to work each season, the school may look forward to many winning cross-country seasons. ). DePue R. Kistler Mr. D. Hess-Coach 75 1st RowLeft to Right - R. Galvani, S. Biondolillo, J.

Gradwohl, Mr. B. Seeber The 1972-73 soccer team started out with high hopes. Injuries hampered the team much of the season, taking away the services of many key players who were needed to win. Nevertheless, Gir¬ ard battled its way to respectability. Led by tri-captains Ben Venafro, Chas. Sisler, and Bob Galvani, Girard compiled a 4-8 record. Of the 8 losses Girard suffered, over half of them were by one goal. Because of the teams fighting desire to win, Girard was not looked upon as an easy win, but as a tough opponent. Despite missing two games with an injury, John Malloy was chosen as the Most Valuable Palyer, recognition he thoroughly deserved. Charles Sisler, always hustling and around the ball, was the team leader with seven goals. The team wishes to thank Coach Seeber, who stuck with us during the rough stretc hes, for the fine job he did coaching the team. soccer Sept. 19 St. Joseph ' s Prep 26 Westtown 28 Harriton High School Oct. 3 Conestoga High School 10 Friends Central 12 Swarthmore College J.V. 17 Germantown Friends 21 Wyoming 24 Valley Forge Military Academy 26 Friends Central 31 George School Sov. 4 Alumni 9 Moorestown Friends 76 B.

DePue The 1972-73 basketball season was dismal. Due to some problems, the basketball team didn ' t start practicing until the end of December. With only one returning letter- man. senior Ben Venafro, and lack of height the season ' s outlook was bleak. When the first game rolled around, the starting five was composed of one senior, two juniors, a sophomore and a freshman. Because of their lack of ex¬ perience, height, and depth, Girard was the underdog in every game they played but this didn ' t stop them from hustling and giving a hundred percent of their effort. Des¬ pite all these problems, the team played like a team and had poise. The underclassmen on the team gained valuable experience that will help them next year to put together a winning season. Coach Seeber deserves much credit for inspiring the team to fight and for his patience. J. Dollarton 1 st Row left to Right - M. Dailey, S. Frith, S. Gorham, D. Bishop, K. Catalano, M.

Mason, Mr. D. Hess, S. Wiseley With a core of five Seniors: Kev Feeley, Steve Wiseley, Jon Mason, Jeff Trickett, and Dave Collins, this year’s swimmers spelled competition for all opponents. The team had a total of seven returning lettermen and plenty of new talent. It was strong in every event except free-style sprint¬ ing. The youn ger members of the team who swam the free-style sprints should be given credit. Surely in future years they will become even finer swimmers than they now are. Our coach, Doug Hess, who has been with the team two years, should be commended more than anyone. His “never say die” spirit has turned Girard swimming into formidable competition. With the departure of the Class of 73 the future looks dim for Girard swimming. Hopefully the younger members of the team will stick with it and work hard, so they may have the same amount of success we have had. swimming Jan. 11 Harriton 18 Valley Forge Mil.

Sabol For a team that had so little with which to work, the Girard wrestlers must be commended. Having only nine men instead of the normal twelve man squad, and finishing with a dual meet record of 6-7 was a feat in itself. The people who were dedicated and interested enough to go out for the team gave one hundred percent throughout the entire season. Had there been a full squad it might have very well gone undefeated. The wrestlers did very well in the Girard Tournament, although entering only eight men. Out of ten teams Girard managed to capture third place. There were three individual winners: Rusty Bohner at 101 lbs., Dan George at 122 lbs. and Steve Biondolillo at 129 lbs. El Arshan placed second at 108 lbs. Later, near the end of the season three of the more experienced members of the team entered the National Prep School Tournament at Lehigh University. Because of a late start and lack of practice during the season these wrestlers were at a definite disadvantage. They ran into stiffer competition than they had ever faced before, but did not have the endurance needed to win. Nobody won or even placed at Lehigh this year, but the members who did participate had the personal satisfaction of knowing that they had done their best under the circumstances. The four Seniors on the team were outstanding in their varsity wrestling careers — probably some of the best wrestlers Girard has ever produced. Next year’s team will have the task of re¬ building a strong , solid squad. They will only achieve this through practice, determination and a desire to excell that has been the trademaik of this past season’s wrestlers. wrestling Jan. 5 Perkiomen 9 Friends Central 11 George School 18 Church Farm School 23 Episcopal Academy 25 Friends Select 30 P.S.D.

Thompson The 1973 baseball season started out with a crowd of new faces. With only three returning let- termen the team was faced with the task of rebuilding. With alot of new talent and a great coach, the team’s outlook was bright. The pitching staff consisted of Ben Venafro and Nick Manchor. It was one of the strongest staffs that Girard has had in the past four years. Due to the small turnout for the team, the bench consisted of only three ballplayers. The lack of substitutes hurt the team considerably; they were often needed but the spots could not be filled in. The team’s hitting was not up to par this year. No matter how well the pitchers would throw, the players could not bring too many runs across the plate. This poor hitting factor caused the team to come out on the short end of the stick in many games. Each player went onto the field with the confidence needed, and the desire to win. There was always 100% hustle, and next year’s team will have many fine returning lettermen. The team would like to thank Mr. Berta, a fine coach, who put forth every effort to make the team a winning one. baseball April 5 St. Joseph ' s Prep H April 10 Friends Central A April 12Montg.

Unfortunately, the tennis program at Girard is not extensive enough to allow for Junior Varsity and Junior High teams. This is much to our disadvantage. Consequently, the Varsity team is bur¬ dened with the job of recruiting and training new members. This year eighteen students turned out for tennis, but within a few short weeks the number was down to twelve. Unlike other years, this year we had a well defined set of drills to which we readily adhered. Mr. Benz displayed uncommon zeal and enthusiasm in working with and encourag¬ ing the team. Good teams with reputable seasons do not become so within days. It is a hard and tedious job, putting together not only winning seasons but developing good players. Sometimes it takes years, as is the case with our tennis team. Fortunately, many younger students came out for the team which will give the coach an opportunity to develop better players in the future. We can look for¬ ward to an even better tennis team within a few years. Much of what we accomplished throughout the years must be credited to Mr. Tennis himself- Jack Benz. Through the years he has given unlimited hours of tennis training and infoimation to students. tennis April 9 Friends Central H April 12 Perkiomen School A April 18 Phoenixville High School A April 26 Church Farm School A May 3 Valley Forge Mi I Academy A May 8 Germantown Friends H May 11 Delaware Co.

Every year forty or fifty people would come out and give it a try. However this was not the case in 1973. The turnout numbered about twenty-five. Within a week it was down to seventeen. And from here a varsity team was to be formed-a respectable team. It was hardly possible. Those who stayed out though, gave their best whenever they could, but it was not enough to compensate for the lack of depth. Consequently those who sacrificed suffered because there were never enough players to fill in the empty spots. If there is a bright aspect to the situation, it is that most of this year’s team will be back next year. With such trackmen on campus, track ‘74 should be much more interesting and exciting for the members. track April 5 Mitchell School H April 9 Delaware Co.
