SENIORS 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. UNDERCLASSMEN The controlling Intelligence understands, its own na- ture, and what it does, and whereon it works. ACTIVITIES Tis said we learn by doingg So you see we have a shareg In various activities. To fail in this we would not dare. ATHLETIC If all the year were playing holidays To sport would be as tedious as to work. 3 FEATURES 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.

Craig, lmlgr 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.

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.

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. 454l' 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 their doings. 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. REPORTERS OF THE PAPER Kneeling, front: R. Duncan, J. Stewart. Sitting, left to right: R. McClary, M. Moshier, R. Dant, A. Levay, R. Dwyer, C. Edwards, M.

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 High School. We have purchased our long waited for vesper gowns, which will add greatly to our appearance. 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- gressive. "l55l' BOYS, GLEE CLUB 'Qi A A17 Firsf row, left fc right: B. Sipes, C. George, A. Schwarz, D.

With the help of Officer Shoemaker and the Fairfax County Police, the Patrols were organized for the school year 1946-47. This organization works directly with the police department, and in this way it feels that it has a job to be done, and more responsibility is placed on each member. Each member feels that it is an honor to be able to Work with the regular force. The organization takes pride in its beneficial Work. This organization is headed by the Secretary of Safety who is a member of the Presi- dent's cabinet. This year the patrols have had a most successful year under the leadership of Charles Gordon as Secretary of Safety. The officers assisting Charles were: Richard Smith, Captain, Marvin Gordon, Richard Coflin and James Harris, Lieutenantsg and Maxine Painter, Secretary, Member must be approved by the Nomination Approval Committee on the basis of honesty, impartiality, dependability, neatness, courtesy and satisfactory grades. The purpose of the patrols is to organize and enforce safety in and around school, and on the school buses. They also have .the privilege of reporting students on misde- meanor charges. In this way they help enforce the school regulations. This organization works directly with the principal and the student government, and they are doing a fine job for our school.

She must be 15 years old or a student in high school. 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 the girl scouts were under the direction of the following: Lorriane Gardiner, president: Virginia Huffman, vice-presidentg Eleanor Dodson, Sonya Sponseller, secretaryg Janet Viar, treasurer, and Miss Josephine Wfood, sponsor.

Another Monday morning means another Art Club Meeting. The weekly club meetings were devoted to comprehensive studies of various types of Art expression. To become a member? - - - I-low? First of all the pupil's artistic ability was 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 ingenuity. The Art Club aim of the year is to gain a greater knowledge and understanding of art to help one use leisure time in an intelligent, enjoyable, and profitable way. The public realized this aim when they saw the very commendable art exhibit which was given at the school. This year the club was led by Doris Dodson, president, Eugene Solet, secretaryg Nancy Lee Parrish, treasurer, and Miss Woodbridge, sponsor. -l63l' :ssl ,. .gf Q Vg, If iw I 5, lfxfl , , ,f ' ig! 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 division. N 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. if Lf I to right: W. Reeder, S. Crofut, M. E. Mays, R, Stewart, P. Buckman, Mr. Karson, M. Frank, R. Brown C.

About twenty- five poems, fifteen short stories, and fifteen essays were submitted. Two of each type were then selected to be included in the booklet which was sent from the school to the state contest.

It is conducted over Station WMAL each Saturday evening at 7 o'clock by Mr. Edward Boykin, who founded the program. The winners of the first and second places ap- pear on the next program with three students called from other schools in the area. The program is sponsored by the Curtis Brother's Furniture Store of Anacostia, Mary- land. Curtis Brothers give each of the two win- ners a twenty-five dollar bond. They give each of the other three contestants five silver dollars. The contest this year was carried out on a 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- sented the school and he was responsible for all questions. Lvff I0 riglalf H. Dwyer, P.

This gives a person many facts which aren,t obtained from ordinary textbooks. Our school was represented on Americanl Quiz this year by Peggy Buckman, who ap- peared twice, by Mary Ruffner, who appeared once, and by Henry Dwyer, who appeared twice. Gardner Van Scoyoc was to have bgen our next contestant, but the programs were discontinued the first of April until next fall. Our school was pleased with the showing that these made on the program and are looking forward to next year. DEBATE SQUAD This year Mount Vernon entered the essay and oratorical contests sponsored by the Ameri- can Legion. Medals are awarded the first, second, and third place winners in each contest in each school participating. The first place winner is eligible to enter the district contest. The subject for the essay was "America's Contribution to a Permanent Peacef, Winners in order were Fred Kaufman, Catherine' Crim, and Jewell Wilson.

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 this team. Much credit is due each player for his enthusiasm and undying loyalty to his teammates by constant and hard practice, and a lively spirit at all times. l l LEFT TO RIGHT: Mr. Lee CCoachJ, T.

This is the second season Mount Vernon High has been included in the event, which is played in Wash- ington for Metropolitan Area gridsters of outstanding ability. However, due to severe injuries just before the tilt, "Nose" was kept from performing in the clash. But in spite of this unfortunate occurrence, he was awarded a gold football and a sweater for the honor he earned. For the first time, our school has the privilege of placing a cheerleader on the All-High cheering squad. Jerry Welch, our human pretzel, was chosen to represent us in this capacity. As a result of her performing in the event, she was awarded a sweater and a skirt by the sponsors of the event. Luck to you two celebrities! Mount Vernon is proud of you.

Odenwalder, A. Tarpley, R. Stewart jones, R. Cole, C. Gordon, E. Alcorn, W. Young. 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. -l74l' 1 J -' ,ks Cheerleaders lf ,xiyaf Vx . J 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. All of us will remember the home coming game with Morrison, when the Morrison cheerleaders and four of us stayed at Jerry's. And, too, weren't we a proud bunch when we had movies made of us at the Fairfax game? Our "human pretzelf' Jerry, never ceased to cause sensations with flips and other acrobatics. This helped her a great deal in representing our school on the All- High cheering squad. We were all proud of this honor because this was the hrst year we have ever been represented. 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 has ever had. Our job as cheerleaders has ended for the year, but in true cheerleading style, we give three hearty cheers to the success of next yearis teams!
