Vernon’s Class of ’43. We’ve known remorse, we’ve had our fun, We’ve tasted failure, and we’ve won. We’ve gained in wisdom day by day, And we ’ve loved it all the way. We’re now prepared to take our place, We’ve our lives to live, a world to face. Before us lies a bright, new dawn, But school-day memories linger on. We say good-bye and shed a tear, Enthralled with joy, struck with fear, The fate that’s ours, we cannot tell, We only smile, and say farewell. Shirley Brown. ?

' itor ¥ In the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and thirty-nine, 93 eager and uncertain youths assembled at Lee Jackson High School near Alexandria to assume their role as freshmen. This year as never before, they had come from Lorton, in addition to coming from Fran- conia, Baileys, Annandale, and Groveton. They became organized under the leadership of President Arthur Arnold, and Vice President Beatrice Sloan. Various freshmen took part in such inter-class activities as Stu- dent Government, Glee Club, and Dramatics Club. One of our mem- bers, Roberta Wiley, won the school Beauty Contest and became known as the Miss Mount Vernon of 1939-1940. During the first part of the year Mount Vernon High School was completed, and the students of Lee Jackson then became pupils of Mount Vernon. As sophomores, the class was under the competent leadership of President Virginia Bevis. The other officers included Vice President, Lorraine Heider; Secretary, Doris Thorpe; Treasurer, Mary Holmes. This year the sophomores were guided through nine months of tem- petuous training by which each became more skilled and more aware of the nearness of his completion of high school. The following year, Doris Thorpe was chosen President for the Juniors. Mary Brickerd became Vice President, Jean Dixon, Secre- tary, and Lee Gentry, Treasurer. The class was asked to help maneuver the Junior-Senior Prom. The year ended very successfully and the Juniors became Seniors. As is evident, the school year of 1942-1943 arrived on schedule. This promising young group, now Seniors, was led by Mary Holmes, the Class President. Lawrence Baldwin iwfas Vice President, with Jean Dixon, Secretary, and Beatrice Sloan, Treasurer. Jimmy Nowlin was head of the Student Government, and Janies Tacey became editor of the Surveyor. Thus, this most industrious graduating class consumed four years of high school life. Nothing is so priceless as the pleasant memories of those four years. Therefore, best wishes go to every member of this graduating class, no matter what may be his destiny.

Each year students are assuming more and more responsibility. In the session 1941-42 the Student Government published the first Handbook and initiated the use of Activities Tickets, which in the 1942-43 session has netted the school some $2500-$3000. With the opening of school in September, 1942, Patrols were placed directly under Student Govern- ment. Under the leadership of Secretary of Safety, Jean Hamlet, who was later succeeded by Willard Bonnett, great strides in clearing up bottlenecks in administration have been made. One of the outstand- ing features of Patrols has been the Color Guard made up of: Henry Bennett, Jordan Lee Harding, Edward Hudson, Robert Clatt, Dale Harwood, and Carrol Mahon. The Lost and Found Department was established and is manned by the following volunteers: Donald Clark, Kent Crowther, Raymond Cone, Claude Smith, and Annie Javins. 182 articles have been returned to their owners and 128 articles, including books, are now stored in the Department. On April 1, the Student Government will hold an Auction Sale of all articles in the Department. The proceeds will go into the Student Government Treasury In relieving the manpower shortage Student Presi- dent, James Nowlin, Secretary of Public Relations, Kent Crowther, and Secretary of Sanitation, William Otis, have led the Student Body in “clean-up work,” and in replacing the janitor. The money realized from the County for this will be given over to the Student Government. As Secretary of Activities, Martin Bostetter has scheduled all organization meetings, planned and put into working order the Victory Corps, and, for the second time, sponsored the sale of magazines, which is one of the high lights of the Student Government activities each year. James Tacey, as Senior member of the Judicial De- partment has, with the help of the other members, Glenwood Clark, Secretary, Bob Straub, and Sieber Mellott, carried on a very fine Court Department. Their meetings have been conducted at regular inter- vals and they have handed down a number of decisions.

The story starts out with Coach Morse’s arrival at M. V. H. and the calling of the first practice. Five days later, we played our first game in the history of our school outside the state of Virginia. The game was with Western and, as many of you will remember, Western won by a score of 48 — 0. This score was almost a fore-gone conclusion as Western is one of the largest schools in Washington — thus their team was much heavier than ours. The next few pages deal with hard prac- tice for the squad on the home field. Then another game, this time with Warrenton. Warrenton won by a score of 19 — 0. Many of the Mustangs were injured in this game, especially P. Thornton whose injury kept him off the football field for the rest of the season. The next chapter has a decidedly brighter aspect for within its pages we played the Alumni and tied them by a score of 6 — 6. Wiley Barrington scored our only touchdown. This game was a good example of team work. A new play-calling system introduced by Mr. Morse and executed by Leif Torkelson at the quarterback position helped greatly in catch- ing the Alumni team off guard. “Kisses” Wiley also deserves recognition for a beau- tiful block laid into a certain Smith, who, nine chances out of ten, would have nabbed Barrington at the beginning of his touch- down run. The next two or three pages deal with Mount Vernon and Manassas. The team travelled to Manassas by train. The game ended with victory for Manassas by a score of 13 — 6. This game would have been a Mus- tang victory if we had started really playing football a little sooner than we did for our touchdown was scored in the last two minutes of the game. We then played a game with National Training School. This game ended with a 19 — 0 score in favor of N. T. S. The next few pages are rather wet and mud-stained because these pages contain the story of the Mount Vernon-Fairfax game. There is an intense rivalry between these two schools and Mount Vernon spirit was flaming when it arrived at Fairfax, but mud, water, and the Fairfax team soon put it out. Fair- fax outweighed us, and outplayed us because of the slow field. Our end runs, off tackle smashes and reverses, could not function on their field. When the sixty minutes of wet playing were over, Fairfax had accumulated 54 points to our 0. This was a great dis- illusionment for our team, but we sincerely hope that next year’s squad will beat the pants off of Fairfax. The last chapter in the book more or less compensates us for the dark ones. On these pages is recorded a victorious and fitting- finale to our football season of ’42. This was the second game with Manassas, which ended in a 6 — 0 victory for Mount Vernon High. This game was another shining example of teamwork and stubborn resistance. The one touchdown was the result of “Bev” Hor- mann’s interception of a pass and running to a touchdown. This being the last game made it seem only right that a Senior should make the only touchdown and that Seniors should more or less dominate in this game, as they did. Now, as we look back over this season, we Seniors realize we have saddled up for the last time. We regret very much to leave, but, in leaving we know that the good work will be carried on by next year’s squad. THE END ' ictoru (OtjiS of Wt. Vernon Mu f l, ScLot Mount Vernon High School is vigorously at work in the war effort. While scores of our graduates have answered the call to the Colors, we of the Home Front are preparing to back them in every way possible. The High School Victory Corps provides simple, definite and organ- ized means by which school officials, teachers, parents, citizens, and pupils may discharge their responsibilities to the country in the present crisis and may carry Virginia’s program into action through a logical and easily managed pattern. Specifically, the High School Victory Corps provides the high schools with: 1. A simplified and easily administered organization for dis- charging their responsibilities to the war effort. 2. The opportunity for the participation of their pupils in the school’s war effort. 3. The opportunity for participation in the war effort of the community. 4. A means of guidance of boys and girls in appropriate types of training for the armed forces and civilian occupations essential to the war effort. The year 1943 will be marked in every High School in the United States as a Red Letter Year for it is the year that saw the beginning of the Victory Corps. In the Future the insignia of the Corps will be as much of an “Open Sesame” to those familiar with high school activities as the insignia of a Greek Letter Faternity. Unlike a Fraternity the Corps Membership is ultra-democratic and owes its exi stance to nothing but its real worth. Miss Mable Gregory, Sponsor. Martin Bostetter, Secretary of Activities. sStw ' iSfel ’Uwc ' le » T " toc raphs 3tt Jlemorium To A Loyal Freshman September 11, 1928 March 27, 1943 Doris Mae Baumback was one of the happiest Fresh- men at Mount Vernon High School.
