We, the students of Mount Vernon High
School, dedicate this volume of THE SURVEYOR
to Ralph E. Buckley, our able assistant
principal and teacher.
Plea:ant and :miling every day,
Even though thing: go not hi: -way.
Alway: finding time for fun,
Though mo:t of the time he': on the run.
He ha: to be here, he ha: to be there,
But with all of thi: he :till i: fair
And never a :tudent that': irked or peeved
But leave: hi: :ide much le:: aggrieved.
We, the faculty and student body, feel the great loss in
the sudden and untimely death of Mr. George C. Gillingham, our
member of the Fairfax County School Board.
In this manner, we honor him for his splendid spirit of co-
operation, his respect for the opinion of others, his businesslike
manner in handling school affairs and his untiring efforts to improve
We shall definitely miss his Congeniality, his humor, his warm
handshakes and his friendly greetings.
THE SURVEYOR of 1949 is proud to review its unusual heritage. lfspecially
in this the tenth anniversary of the founding of our high school are we reminiscent
of those features of historical significance so closely linked with our school life.
The very land on which our school is built is a part of the original George
Vlfashington Estate. How significant that we should hold high at all times those
principles of honor and integrity embodied in the private and public life of the
great statesman, Washington!
just as he upheld those ideals of democratic living and put forth every effort
to establish a nation of equality and freedom, so we, the students here at Mount
Vernon, are attempting to incorporate in our way of life those same principles.
All countries eagerly look to America for examples of that way of life that
brings peace and happiness. We feel within us the urge to "survey" these great
principles of government established by the great father of our country that wc
may engrave them more deeply in our lives. Only then can we be examples for
We, the staff, have been preparing during our high school life to be ready
for the great tasks which lie ahead of us. They are great tasks and they are chal-
lenging tasks. Our country needs the best efforts of all its citizens.
Although we shall find ourselves engaged in many activities, we shall often
think of the days here at Mount Vernon with their happy memories. We, the
staff, hope that this annual will help you remember these highlights of your high
school days. As you read this and look through the pages, may it be a challenge
to you to work harder in building a great nation.

A shadow fell over the senior class at Thanks-
giving time when so suddenly one of our members,
Ross Limerick, was called from our midst. Ross
was quiet and reserved, but those who knew him
well will not soon forget his pleasing manner and
cheerful personality. We miss him from our
Zlasses in Selma!

Our student government, patterned after our national government, was founded with thc purpose of setting forth high
ideals of democracy, citizenship, and self-government through actual experience.
The oflicers are elected by the student body and serve for one year. One memher from each home room is elected to
make up the legislative departments, and the judicial department is made up of one memher from each class, which is :tp-
pointed by the class sponsor.
This year, as hefore, the student government sponsored the niagazine campaign and un annual student government
dance. 'l'hest l' t f " - f-' " ' ' - ' " - ' ' '
ut cn government ccls that their success in these were duc to the cooperation received from the council mem-
hers and that ofthe student body as a whole.
'l'wo main projects of the student government this year were to revise the handbook and to set up n new system hy
which students may acquire the academic letters.
'I'hc student government began this year with a new sponsor, Miss Whitt, who has proved hcr worthfulness of such Il
position hy her excellent cooperation and high ideals of democratic procedure.

The students of the Yearbook Club have had for their objective this session
the preparation of TnE SURVEYOR. This has been a difficult task and we have
been confronted with various problems but it has been a satisfactory task.
As we look back over the year, we remember the many hours we have spent
in soliciting ads, in getting groups together for pictures, in getting write-ups from
the many clubs and in thinking of original ways of presenting our many materials.
Our only money-making project has been that of securing ads.
At last the book is ready. We, the members of the Yearbook Club, sincerely
wish that you will enjoy the 1949 SURVEYOR and that it will bring back to you
the many happy occasions of our school year, 1948-1949.

Experiencing its most successful year, the Em Vee Ili, under the faithful sponsorship
of Miss Engleman, organized in September a Staff of capable writers.
Kent Fleenor held the top position as Editor-in-Chief along with the able assistance
of the Associate Editor, Jeffrey Stewart. To them fell the task of writing editorials, checking
articles and general planning and direction of the paper in order to keep it running smoothly.
Jackie Bender had the position of Feature Editor. Her job was to write the " Fashions "
column, the "Notes and News" column, and to direct the other features, "This 'n' That,"
concerning students' and teachers' outside activities and originated by Jeverna Tucker
and the two entertainment columns were new this year.
The all-important sports news was written by David Cooke and Roxanne Dachtler
while a new sidelight concerning the ins and outs of Sports at Mount Vernon, " Lockeroom
Lowdown," was written by Edgar Odenwalder, jr.
Special additions to the paper were new drawings for several feature columns which
were originated and drawn by the Art Editor, Gene Pugh.
'l'hc Club liditor, Mildred Kriese, kept everyone informed on the activities of various
The job of writing headlines and assigning the news articles was given to the News
liditor, George Stauss.
News from other schools, as found in the Exchange Column Written by Betty Cran-
ford, was both interesting and amusing.
Supporting the rest of the Staff were: Barbara Zehring, Business Maxiagerg Shirley
lfildert, Advertising liditor, and Frances Volz, Circulation Maiiager. These girls had a
hard job, but did a line one.
Although the majority of the reporters were new to the job of writing news articles
at the beginning of the year, they did splendid work and should be commended.
'l'his year, many improvements were made on the Em Ver Ili. Among the most
important of the improvements were: A new Banner for the heading of the newspaperg a
new type of headline, and a six-page issue.

The Mount Vernon Cheerleaders made quite a change this
season by eliminating all "Boogie Yells" and adding a new attrac-
tion. The new megaphones sported by each cheerleader and their
Their half-time shows, made up of stunts and acrobatics was
quite a sensation. The outstanding feature was that of the "pret-
zels," Dot and Lu. Dot had the Hips in tune while Lu did startling
splits. Without any broken bones the cartwheels and backbends
were done by Star, Shirl, Dot, Lu, Lee, Woody, Buck and Squeaky.
The cheerleaders,with the help of Miss Waid and Miss Edmond-
son, sponsored the first dance of the season. This was a huge success
and everyone had a good time.
I1PATRlCIA WATS0N"iiP8IU-GTOVCIOH School, Mascot, I year. Always a big
smile for the Football Mascot, "Happy Lee." She is liked by everyone and
seemed to be one of the most popular cheerleaders.
2-LoRE'rrA YouNG-"Lotte Lu"-Senior, 1 year on squad. Come rain or come
shine "Lu" was always on the beam at games. Swell going, "Lu"l
3-SHIRLEY DOOLEY-"Doodles"-Sophomore, I year on squad. Always on the
end of the line and had to run a mile to catch up with us to do a yell, didn't
you "Doodlesl'? But that's O. K.
4-JOYCE HILL-"Squeaky"-Senior, I year on squad. Nothing like singing and
dancing after a yell, is it Squeaky? But that's all right, we knew it was for
the good of the team!
5-LEAH HENRY-'KLeah"-Sophomore, I year on squad. That extra whistle sure
helped, Leah. You deserve a lot for lending your voice to boost the morale of
6-Jovca Simms-"Jo"-Senior, I year on squad. Always looking for number "23"
when anyone was taken off the field.
M Iss EDMONDSON
The girls helped speed the Majors on to victory and boosted
the morale of the team a great deal. They have cheered at the ma-
jority of the basketball games, but due to the lack of transportation
they could not attend the games played too far from home.
With the help of their able sponsors, Miss Waid and Miss
Edmondson, and the willingness of the girls to work out, the cheer-
leaders have had a successful year.
joan Crabtree, due to illness had to quit the squad. She was
elected to one of the top honors of Co-Captain but gave it up to
Dot Weaver when she was forced to leave the squad. Joan cheered
on last years squad and we the cheerleaders send our best wishes
for success to her.
1-IEVERNA 'Tuciuan-"Bobbie"-Senior, Captain, 2 years on squad. "Bobbie"
was elected captain by a large majority and proved to be always dependable.
21D0ROTHY WEAVER-"Dot"-Senior, Co-Captain, 2 years on squad. Could
really put on a half time show with her Hips and cartwheels, and did not even
have a backache, imagine!
'ANN BUCKMAN-K'Buck"-Senior, I ear on s uad. If ou heard a s ueal at
3 U I - Y q Y q
the exciting part of the game, it was "Buck,"
4-SHIRLEY ELDERT-"Shirl"-Senior, I year. Games can sure get exciting, just
ask "Shirl," I'll bet she hasn't much hair left. How about that "Shirl?"
5'KENT FLEENOR-"Star"-Senior, I year on squad. It seems she had a pretty
hard time getting untangled from the ropes after the cheers. But that's all
right Star, you're excused!

Seniar Girl Scaufs
In September, 1948, the Senior Girl Scout Troop 22 held its first meeting after
the summer vacation with Miss Wood, our leader, and Mrs. Provance, our assistant
leader. The members of the troop committee this year are Miss Woodbridge,
Mr. Haggerty, and Mrs. Cummins. Mrs. Ayman began work in September as the
new executive director of Girl Scouts of Fairfax County.
Officers of the troop were elected as follows: Frances Caton, president, Dorothy
Dail, vice president, Eleanor Dodson, secretary and treasurer, Betty Perry, song
leader, Mildred Kriese, reporter. Frances Caton and Helen Roland were elected
to represent our troop on the Senior Planning Board for the County.
Some of the activities during our meetings were:Textile painting, embroider-
ing, crochetingg singing, the making of nut cups and party hats for the Red Cross
to be given to the soldiers in the hospital at Ft. Belvoir, and doing volunteer work
for the Tuberculosis Association after school and Saturdays. Another school
activity was the Annual Christmas Party, held at the last meeting before the
Several of the girls appeared at a few of the last meetings dressed in the new
official uniforms, designed by a famous New York designer.
A new camp site has been donated to the Girl Scouts of Fairfax County by
Mr. Crowley. The camp site is near Oakwood, Virginia, and it was Mr. Crowley's
old home. It consists of about 40 acres of ground and it is the hope of all those
interested in Girl Scouting, that it will not be long before necessary buildings are
erected to provide camping facilities for the Girl Scouts.
Until this is done, Fairfax County Scouts must use other camps. One of the
final activities of the troop this year was a week end spent in Prince William Park,
two miles from Triangle, Va. This was the first camping experience for many of
the girls and one they will never forget.

Che Key 61110
The Key Club is a school service organization sponsored by the Kiwanis
Clubs of Alexandria and Woodbridge. Its motto is, "VVe build," and its constitu-
tion is based on that of the senior clubs. The Mount Vernon Club was estab-
lished in 1947 and still includes most of its charter members.
The Club carried out quite a number of activities during the year. Members
attended meetings with other clubs in Fredericksburg, Manassas and Occoquan.
The entire Club went to a meeting of the Alexandria Kiwanis Club. Two room
signs were made and bought by the Club and others are under construction. It
was the Key Club that lifted the face of the school sign by the highway. Through-
out the baseball season, the hard-working boys in the refreshment stand were
Key Club members.
The high point of the Club year was the International Convention in W'ash-
ington on March 25 and 26, with Mount Vernon and Occoquan being the joint
host Clubs. Club boys handled much of the organization work at the convention,
and in recognition of their work, the senior boys were given Key Club letters
by the International Office.

llymns and carols. We also sang songs as a background for the play The Chri,vtn1n.r Cum! by Dickens.
which was performed at that program by the Public Speaking Club.
'l'he rating of the Glee Club at the district music festival last spring could not be put in the year-

know that the Glec Club received an "excellent" rating on their work last year.

consisted of the selling of hot dogs at football gamesg the selling of Havoringg an Easter egg huntg a
Christmas party, a Valentine boxgthe federation picnic at Rock Creek Park, and participation in the
state and the federation meetings.
Next year you will leave your favorite haunt for the more dignified Senior Club-the inevitable

'l'he Xlount Vernon High School foothall team has wound up five seasons of class " li" football without a single loss in
the league. 'l'hat is a record to he proud of as we look forward to group l competition, hut it certainly would not have heen
possihle without the excellent coaching of Mr. Harry JK. Lee and his well-chosen assistants. Hr. Lee has been at Nlount
Yernon for five years, and each year the interest of the hoys has become more activeg the result, larger squads each year,
more material, more competition and winning teams!
During the last season the Xlajors were fortunate in having Xlr. "Skeeter" Coyle, assistant coach, who hails from
Furman University. He has complete charge of all the xl. V. games and has taught these hoys many things which will he
of ereat value when they are ready to step into the shoes of the retiring varsity boys. This left more time for Nlr. l.ee to
spend with the varsity team and, therefore, the boys got those hits of added information and training without which they
may have not had such a successful season.
'l'he -lunior Varsity, too, has an excellent season of play, losing only one game, tying one, and winning the remainder.
The lightweight squad, made up of eighth-graders and those too small for high school foothall was at spirited organi-
zation which learned the essentials of the gridiron sport through the able direction of the Varsity haskethall coach, Nlr.
Lee Roherts,a former Nl. V. student attending Xlaryland University,volunteered his time at the beginning of and
throughout the season at various times giving vigorous exercises and workouts which added much to the toughness of the

Mount Vernon, o-Gonzaga, 6
Before a crowd of 5.000 enthusiastic fans the Mount Vernon Majors inaugurated their 1948 football campaign with a
6-O loss to Gonzaga of NVashington.
Gonzagzfs fullback O'Keefe scored the only touchdown of the night in the closing minutes of the final quarter when he
plunged over from the four-yard line. This climaxed a long drive from their own 30-yard line.
"Egg" Thomas paced the Majors on offense and defense with his passing, running and hard tackling.
Mount Vernon, 6-George Washington, 27
Seven thousand fans watched the George Washington Presidents hand the Majors their second straight defeat in a
27-6 encounter at the President's stadium.
The play in the first quarter was very tight with no scoring and the Majors doing most of the threatening.
The only score of the first half was made when Smith scored on a pass play. The extra point was good.
George Washington's next score, in the 3d quarter, was made on a plunge by Potts from the two-yard line. The prexies
scored again in this quarter on the 40-yard pass play from Potts to Via. Both extra points were good.
The final George Washington score was made in the last period by Harris who bullied his way over from the one-yard
line after a long drive.
The Majors scored their only touchdown of the game in the final quarter on a pass play from Thomas to Thompson.
The play covered 34 yards. Thompson's kick was wide and the game ended with the score 27-6.
Mount Vernon, 53-Herndon, 6
Third game of the season and the first win for the Majors was the beginning of an eight-game victory streak with no more
losses for the remainder of the season.
"Egg" Thomas scored the first touchdown of the game on a ten-yard gallop through the middle of the Herndon line.
Herndon came back in the same quarter to tie up the score on a pass to the left end.
liverritt scooted around right end from the io-yard line for the first half on 30 and I5-yard points.
Will jacobs made the only score of the third quarter from the five-yard line.
Eugene Atkinson, in the last period, pulled in a Herndon pass and ran 40 yards for another Major score. Bob Sparks
countered for the second time when he stole a pass from a Herndon receiver and ran 60 yards for the final score of the game.
Mount Vernon, 31-Falmouth, o
The Majors evened up their record by winning the second in a row in this, their fourth gridiron battle of the season.
"Egg" Thomas scored the initial touchdown ofthe game on a zo-yard plunge through left tackle. Thompson kicked the
extra point, his only one of the night. Bob Sparks ended the scoring for the first half by plunging over from the two-yard
Kenny Iiverritt, carrying two would-be tacklers over with him, went over in the third period from the 35-yard line.
The Majors then came back in the final quarter to score twice. Hjet' Norfolk scored on a reverse and Thomas ended
the game as he started it, with a 25-yilftl touchdown sprint through the center of the Falmouth line.
Mount Vernon, 39-Falls Church, 6
The fifth, and one of the most impressive games of the season was paced by Bob Sparks and "Egg', Thomas 80-yard runs
against the visiting ,laquar team.
Mount Vernon moved into a I1-O lead in the early minutes of the first quarter when Kenneth Everritt crossed the Falls
Church goal twice for twelve points and Thompson converted after the first touchdown.
The only score for the Majors in the second quarter took place when Thomas bulled his way over from the 12-yard line.
The Falls Church team made their lone score in the second period when jack Acre carried the leather five yards around
right end to score.
Bob Sparks, on the second half kickoff, fought his way into the open and romped 82 yards for a touchdown. Everritt
ran the extra point over.
Tillie Thompson made a beautiful catch of Thomas's pass on the 30-yard line and raced for the score. Everritt again
made the extra point from scrimmage.
ln the final quarter "Egg" Thomas broke into the clear and raced 85 yards for the final score of the game.
Mount Vernon, l2"J3mCS Monroe, 6
The most hard-fought game of the season was this sixth tilt which was missed by many fans due to rain and mud. The
Mounties captured their fourth straight win in this tilt.
james Monroe scored first on a 40-yard run in the initial period.
Bob Sparks, Major tailback, received the kickoff at the beginning ofthe second half and streaked 102 yards for six points
on the most sensational play of the season. The extra point attempted failed. The Mounties tallied the winning six points
in the final quarter when Kenny Everritt bulled his way over the jackets' goal line from 35 yards out. The extra point at-
tempted was again stopped.
Mount Vernon, 34-Osbourn, 6
The seventh tilt of the '48 campaign was a day game at the Majors' stadium which brought about their fifth straight
victory by a score of 34-6.
The Mounties found it unnecessary to punt throughout the game against this eleven from Manassas.
The first Mount Vernon six-pointer in the first period was racked up when "Egg" Thomas smashed over tackle on a two-
yard buck. Although the conversion man for the Majors, Page Thompson, missed the extra point after this tally, he split
the posts perfectly for the next four Major scores.
The Mounties scored again on a short plung in the second quarter when Kenneth Everritt dove over from four yards
out. This ended the scoring in the first half. Both of these Major tallies climaxed long drives much aided by the excellent

Kenneth Everritt led the scoring parade with three six pointers. He scored once in the first quarter, smashing over tackle
from the two-yard line. He scored again in the third quarter and once more in the final period.
Charlie Thomas recovered a Bullis punt which was blocked by the junior Varsity center Louis Fiel, for an additional

Thomas's 40-yard pass in the end zone for the score.
Two of the Majors' extra points came on placements by Page Thompson. Stan Kelly scored the other on a reverse.
Mount Vernon, 14-Culpeper, 6
In the final class "B" game for Mount Vernon High School in any sport, the Majors won their seventh straight gridiron
tilt in the ninth of the season.
The Mounties received the opening kickoff and immediately marched 70 yards for a score. Thomas plunged over from
the four-yard line on the last play of the long drive. Thompson kicked the extra point from placement.
The Ma'or Gridsmen tallied again in the second quarter on the same play that set up the first touchdown. It went
all the way this time with Thompson receiving a forty-yard pass on the two-yard line and stepping over for the score. Bob
Sparks had the honor of making the last point as a Class "B" player against a Class "Bw team by smashing overguard
for the extra point.
Culpeper scored their six points in the final quarter when Sophie, faking an end run, flipped a pass to his left end who
received it and fought his way over from the twelve-yard line.
Mount Vernon, 26-Fairfax, o
Shelton "Squirrel" Craig made the last touchdown of the season in this the ending game of the Mounties '48 campaign.
The annual turkey-day affair, which was a hard fought but less impressive than usual, wound up with a 26-O score leaving
the Mount Vernon Majors on the top for the County Championship. It also wound up one of the Majors longest victory
marches in one season, this being the eighth win in a row.
The Majors countered once in each quarter. The first six oints came on the second play from scrimmage in the game
on a 60-yard pass play involving ace fullback Charlie "Egg" Thomas as hurler and de luxe end, Page "Tillie" Thompson as
receiver. It was the same play and the same personnel that set up and scored many touchdowns this season.
Kenny Everritt, who was the driving force behind the Major machine until he was injured in the third quarter, scored
in the second when he bulled over this right guard from the six-yard line.
Early in the third quarter the Majors marched to the Fairfax two-yard line, where "Egg" Thomas cut off tackle for
six points. Thompson added the conversion via footwork.
Two long passes from Thomas to Paul "jet" Norfolk paved the way for the final tally of the game and of the season.
Shelton Craig snagged a flat pass from Thomas on the I2-yard line and flashed into pay-dirt territory for the score.

'I'he l948-49 edition ofthe NIH-iOI' liaskcteers was the best ever at Xlount Vernon. Facing
the prospect of no home games on za tough Class .-X schedule didn't stop the Xlajors. The
team was built around returning Ietternlen, Harding, Odenwaltier, Viiatson and newcomers,
Brown, Sarre and Sisselherger.
lfven though the Xlaliors lost four more games than they won, they outscored their
opponents for the season. Unefpoint losses to V51-stern and Lane were the heart-breakers
of the canipaign, while victories over Hiashington and Lee and Fairfax were high spots.

Here at Mount Vernon in early spring the calls for boys interested in track
is issued at the same time the call for other spring sports is made. Although we
have limited facilities, there is always enough interest and enthusiasm to produce
team for meeting competition in our class.
Meets are held with Falls Church, Fairfax, George Washington and other
schools in this vicinity. Most of the meets are held away, but the results are good.
Mt. Vernon also participates in the State Contest which is held in late spring.
Since there is no track field here at our school, practice is held at Fort Belvoir.
