Let every rnan be occupied and occupied in the highest
employment of what his nature is capable, and let his con-
sciousness know that he has done his best.
The advantage of a classical education are twofold, it
enables us to look down with contempt on those who have
not shared its advantages and also fits us for places of emolu-
ment, not only in this world, but in that which is to come.
The controlling Intelligence understands, its own na-
ture, and what it does, and whereon it works.
Tis said we learn by doingg
So you see we have a shareg
In various activities.
To fail in this we would not dare.
If all the year were playing holidays
To sport would be as tedious as to work.
There shall be sung another Golden Age,
The rise of leaders and of arts,
The good and great inspiring epic rage,
The wisest heads and noblest hearts.

This year We, the Surveyor Staff, have chosen
to honor our sponsor for her assistance in our under-
takings for a better yearbook. We feel that her
inspiring contributions merit for her special recog-
nition. Her thoughtfulness, understanding Ways,
friendship, and humor have made her a friend to
each of us. Therefore, it is with pride that We, The
Staff, dedicate the 1946-7 volume of

Throughout the school year 1946-47, many things have been accomplished, which have contributed
to the welfare of the school. Cur major project this year was our magazine campaign, the proceeds of
which were used to open a drive to raise funds for bleachers and lights for the athletic Held.
One of our most colorful events this year was our annual George Washington's Birthday Ball.
The Judicial Court also comes under the Student Government, and they have done a Wonderful
job- this year. They try cases and sentence any offender for misdemeanors, such as eating in halls, mis-
conduct around school, etc.
This year we were proud that parts of our constitution were used in the handbook published by the
National Association of Students Councils.
The Student Government, gi hard working, efficient, and cooperative group of students, is striving
towards a better school with more school spirit, and SIHHCIS ready IO SCFVG MOLIUE Vernon High School
to the best of its ability.

This year the "Surveyor Staffi' got an early start. About the second week in Septem-
ber the staff began to organize and solicit membership. Any student in school had the
opportunity of becoming a member of the staff. Thirty-Hve reported to the first meeting
and made plans for electing officers.
Mr. Penny and Mr. Hicks of the Brown-Morrison Company paid a visit to our
school in early September, at which time the contract was signed and the cover for
our book was picked by a committee of students.
At the next meeting n slate was presented to the staff and at this same meeting our
present officers were elected.
Mr. Joseph Loeb, of Alexandria, was secured for the purpose of taking our pictures
and he began early in October. Students were excused from school to go to Alexandria
to have their pictures made. Anyone of us who assisted in the studio during this time
will tell you that we enjoyed every minute of it. As A token of his appreciation of our
service Mr. Loeb presented each of the helpers with leather picture folders.
XVhen time came for group pictures here at school everything of course, was a
mix-up. Classes had to be re-routed and some cancelled in order to make way for the
photographer and if you don't think this was a headache, just ask Mr. Landes.

The advertising staff carried away honors in bringing in subscriptions. Our receipts
this year have exceeded all previous years. Along this line the staff sold Christmas cards,
note paper and all-occasion cards to help build the yearbook fund.
Of course the whole school knows what a task we had in promoting and complet-
ing the school mirror selections. It took eighteen girls half a day to compile votes and
another day for two of us to complete the list. In this same respect we began to complete
plans for selecting our school beauties. After selecting twenty girls, photographs were
taken to an unknown man to choose twelve girls for the final competition, which was
to be judged by john Robert Powers of New York City. One Sunday these twelve girls
gathered at the Blunt residence, to have their pictures taken. After moving furniture
and racking our brains for about four hours we succeeded in completing the ordeal.
This year our yearbook function was a combined, tacky party, carnival and dance.
Anyone who was there can vouch for the success of the event.
Well, students, here is your 1947 USURVEYOIU' and we hope after you have read
through the book and have an idea of our task, you will find many hours of enjoyment
leafing through the pages in your future years.

B. Sipes, R. Jones.
The Em Vee' Hi staff was organized in September under the sponsorship of Miss
Engleman. Pat O'Flaherty was selected to head the paper as editor. Jerry Welch and
Marion Frank were selected to help her as assistant editor and feature editor, respectively.
Peggy Buckman assumed the job of news editor.
This year Em Vee Hi opened its paper for advertising which meant that the busi-
ness staff had to be enlarged. Bobby Sipes, who already had experience in that Held, be-
came business manager with Ruth Jones assisting him as advertising manager. Herbert
Leisner and Gordon Miller took care of circulation.
Rodney Stewart and Patsy Manning were selected to head the sports department.
A new feature of the sports page was a column "As I See It", written by Gus Panagos
and featuring news and views on athletic events and outstanding school athletes.
The front page featured a drawing, usually a scene reminiscent of the months, by
the able art editor, David Carter.
To Anne McDonald fell the job of reading exchange papers and selecting from them
interesting bits of news to pass on to Em Vee Hi readers. Mary Ella Mays had the diffi-
cult job of keeping up with all the alumni and writing a column for each issue telling of
Club Corner, a column devoted to club activities, was Bobby Waddell's responsi-
bility. Bobby persistently visited club reporters and sponsors until he got the news.
Throughout the year Em Vee Hi featured a series of articles on outstanding students
selecting a boy or girl each month as student of the month. A column entitled "Our
Facultyl' contained articles on two of the new faculty members each month.
There is not space to mention individually each member of that very essential part
of a paper, the reporting staff. Newspaper work was new to most of these people, but,
although they found the job of hunting up the news a difficult one, they worked faith-
fully. The typists. too, deserve credit for a necessary job well done.
The function sponsored by the staff, was a Christmas dance held in the Odd Fel-
lows Hall in Alexandria with Bobby Sipes and his orchestra providing the music. A spe-
cial feature was a jitterbug contest.

Our Glee Club this year has surpassed all years in membership. It was necessary to
form a Senior Girls Glee Club, Boys Glee Club, and an Eighth Grade Glee Club.
Our aims this year have been to create a desire for music and appreciation for a bet-
ter quality of singing. We have studied two part, three part and have stressed a mixed
chorus as our objective.
The Club has participated in assemblies at Christmas time, and at other school func-
tions, also entered the District Music Festival for the Hrst time at George Washington
We have purchased our long waited for vesper gowns, which will add greatly to our
Each Club elected its own ofhcers who have carried on all businesses, kept records
and made cash contributions toward improvement of the Athletic Field.
We feel that with this year's work our future years will be more profitable and pro-

The Edgar Allan Poe Chapter of Quill and Scroll, International Honorary Society
for High School Journalists, was organized at Mount Vernon early in 1946. Although
most of the those initiated at that time were seniors, three members of the junior class
were taken into the society. To be made a. member of the society, a student must be
scholastically in the upper third of his high school classg he must have clone distinctive
work in some phase of high school journalism, and he must be recommended by the ad-
viser of the publication, and he must be approved as being worthy of membership by
the society's executive officer designated for that duty.

2. She must willingly subscribe to the Girl Scout promise and laws.
3. She must pay her Hfty cents national membership dues.
The Fairfax County Girl Scout Council was organized in January. Under the new
organization the Mount Vernon troop was changed from troop 12 to troop 22.
Several money making projects were undertaken during the year. These included
a Hallowelen dance, Girl Scout calendar sale, and the sale of hot dogs. Fifty dollars of
this money was contributed toward the fund for bleachers for the athletic Held. The re-
mainder was used in furnishing and decorating Mrs. I-Iatch's ofhce which was the meet-
ing place of the troop.
In December, the troop helped in the sale of tickets for the Messiah presented by
the Alexandria Choral Society, and collected toys which were given away at Christmas.
On January 4, fifteen of the members attended a Regional Senior Conference in Wash-
ington. Everybody was busy during the spring learning out-of-door skills and hiking
in preparation for a week-end camp. Along with the fun and good times throughout the
year, the troop tried to keep "Service" as the central theme for their activities. This year

recognized, then he or she was invited to try out. If they were successful, they became
a full pledged member.
The artistic type during leisure time probably paint smudges on their hands, faces,
clothes, and other belongings, not to mention a conglomeration of paper, paint, brushes,
rulers, stubley pencils, and other artistic paraphernalia lying around. The artist may
have been standing off and squinting through her eyelashes to get the effect of her
latest creation, or the artist may have been chewing the end of an already well-masticated
pencil, trying to get "an idea."
All of this Work and effect is usually of some service to the school, when an artistic
piece of work needs to be done at school. Whether it be the making of place cards,
banquet decorations, or posters the Art Club contributes willingly their ideas and
The Art Club aim of the year is to gain a greater knowledge and understanding of

This is the second year that Mount Vernon has participated in activities sponsored
by the Virginia High School League. Through school contests students were chosen
to represent the school in the literary and forensic contests, which include debating,
public speaking, prose and poetry reading, and spelling, and in the creative writing
AMERICA N LEGION CONTEST
Early in the year Mr. Karson sent out a call for all those interested in debating.
Many responded, but some of these dropped out when they realized how much time
and work would be required. The question was "Resolved: That the federal government
should provide a system of complete medical care available to all citizens at public
expense." Faithful workers were Marion Frank, Catherine Crim, Cheila Crofut, Roland
Brown, and James Young, who believed aflirmatively, and Peggy Buckman, Mary Ella
Mays, Rodney Stewart, Wallace Reeder, and Joe Alexander, who upheld our present
set-up for medical care. These students spent long hours doing research, some of it in
the Library of Congress, and then debating, first within the school and later against
teams from other schools. Practice debates were held with George Washington High
and Washington-Lee High. In March an afhrmative team composed of Marion Frank,
Roldan Brown and Catherine Crim and a negative team composed of Peggy Buckman,
Rodney Stewart and Mary Ella Mays debated against the teams of Fairfax and Falls
Church and were declared county champions.
April 12 the same afhrmative team and a negative team composed of Peggy
Buckman, Wallace Reeder, and Mary Ella Mavs went to the District H, Group II, con-
test in Fredericksburg. The afhrmative team won first place thus becoming eligible for
the state meet April 25.

different plan than that of former years. For-
merly the school was represented by a team, each
member of which was held responsible for ques-
tions pertaining to a certain period of American
History. This year a single contestant repre-

The 1946 Mounti-e football team was again in the limelight this year. Athletic
Director Harry Lee guided his team through one of its most successful seasons, being
assisted by Mr. H. H. Jones, a former Alexandria High School grid coach. The excellent
gridiron showing earned for the Majors the Northern Virginia Championship for Class
B high schools.
Again this year, many of the home tilts were played on the George Washington
High School field. For this privilege, we are very grateful to those who made this
possible. Also, as an added event, we were hosts to the Newport News, Va., ball club
as our overnight guests: an event which has become one of our customs when playing

In the middle of last year the Monogram Club organized. At first, the membership
was restricted to persons holding two or more athletic letters. It was changed later so
that a person holding one athletic letter was eligible for membership. A committee was
appointed and drew up a constitution by which the members must abide.
The purpose of this club is to bring the holders of athletic awards closer together
to further a general desire, this desire being to promote further the ideals of fairness,
good sportsmanship and the ability to lose or win with a grin.
This club is not for boys exclusively but girls holding one or more athletic letters
are eligible to join. Persons holding two or more letters are eligible to take part in the
voting activities. This year officers are: James Young, president, Gus Panagus, vice presi-
dent, and Patsy Manning, secretary and treasurer.
Cheerleaders lf ,xiyaf
The cheerleaders, better known as the "lung bustersf,
came through again with flying colors. Game after
game the Uplucky eight" fought rain, snow, or what
have you, to get to a game-but they were always
there. Their rewards varied from laryngitis, sprained
ankles, stiff necks and straight hair, to the greatest
attainment of it all, their letters.
Did anyone happen to see Jerry and Mary crying
on each others' shoulders after the G.W. game? And
poor Milly! What a time she had all season keeping up
with her megaphone! Then there was Ducky to rely
on to show up with a bag of those "tickle stoppers"-
lemons to you.

us stayed at Jerry's. And, too, weren't we a proud

Extra credit is due Amber, Jeanne, Kitty and Marjorie
who cheered through basketball season, and led the
largest cheering section for this sport that our school

to the success of next yearis teams!
