THE NINETEEN FIFTY THREE jtays U ct. faty x., (tluHzyaJ — 7 7T. , zr q HIGH SCHOOL y- ._ ’ 4 © £Q B|Jr RICHMOND HIGHWAY -ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA FOREWORD Time continues to change our lives, and we students here at Mount Vernon can easily say that this “has been” our yearl Fall 1952 — Ours was a small school but the sudden invasion of thirteen hundred lively and demanding students resulted in an era never to be forgotten. Future years will bring smiles to our faces when we re-live in memory the vast building program we endured. The necessity of having classes in the halls was almost a major catastrophe and the mud thickened paths to our quonsets were impassable much of the time. Cranes lifting steel blocking our paths— bricks falling— bulldozers ploughing up the soil— no heat and no doors on the new wings to keep out the cold— these things we shall always remember. Spring 1953 — What have we to be proud of —our new classrooms, and ample storage space, new offices for our administrative staff, an audi- torium, and a cafeteria which will seat 450 per- sons. Our new library will accommodate one- sixth of our students at one time. Even the old classrooms in the school were painted bright pastel colors. June 1953 — Cherished will be the memories of the seniors, for they were the first to graduate in the new auditorium at Mount Vernon High. The period of transition has affected all of us but we are proud to know that we shared our headaches. 4 CONTENTS School Life .... 9 Organizations ... 13 Sports 39 Features 61 Seniors 69 Underclassmen . . 89 Administration . . 115 Qfienl with OUR STORY ViewA, Abound Ute School 6 The Southern Interscholastic Press Association conference in Lexington included the following M. V. students: First row, seated: Jay Arneson. Second row: Susie Small, Frank Estep, Doris Cool, Sylvia Brown, Dee Armstrong, and Darlene Sapp. Mount Vernon was repre- sented at the All-State Band tryout, held in Harrison- burg, by Gary Gillum, Ho- ward Armistead, Dick Wade, Bill Burch, Marion Huff- man, James Featherstone, and Margaret Deacon. HONORS Ask these students about all the fun they had at Boys ' State and Girls ' State which was held at V.P.I. at Blacksburg: Seated: Sylvia Brown, Minta Judy. Standing, left to right: Nancy Thurston, Maurice Briggs, Arthur DeStout, Dick Kinsler, and Roberta Locke. Seen snapping pictures at the State Student Government Convention at Farmville are Sylvia Brown (with camera) and left to right: Ann Conner, Shirley Weaver and Roberta Locke. Nancy I hurston, a senior, came out on top to represent M. V. in the “I Speak For Democracy " contest and then went on to take second place Northern Virginia area. Selena Dovel, a sophomore, repre- sented Mount Vernon at the Seventh National Conference on Citizenship held in Washington. Representing Mount Vernon for the first time at the National Convention of the Student Governments was Roberta Locke. Roberta, a senior, flew to Chicago for the three-day convention. This is what Darlene Sapp, a senior, has to say about the Southern Scholastic Press Institute Which she at- tended in Tallahassee, Flor- ida. “This is a very excel- lent opportunity for any aspiring young journalist. I had a lot of fun yet learned about publication work. " Sylvia Brown, another rep- resentative to the institute at Florida State University in Tallahassee says that she wishes it were possible for every person interested in publication work to attend such an institute. % e neaxt between the Unei Each day of the week, Monday through Friday, from 9 ’til 3:10— familiar scenes are prominent around our campus and in the halls. Our clinic which began operating after the Christmas holidays proved to be a necessary fac- tor in the daily routine. Without the telephone —our students would have been lost! Physical training, and choosing one’s life work are never- to-be-forgotten chapters in our lives. Time out for a daily chess game, Latin, the American Revolution and First Aid were typi- cal daily reminders. Behind closed doors many a girl practiced skill in cosmotology. Memories cherished by every junior and senior were those of the prom with its long receiving line and finally the day of attainment— Graduation. 1 10 The ‘carpet baggers’ were Check mate Number pa-leeze I would like you to meet Critical? II SCHOOL Every school needs “boosters” and our Parent Teachers Association has always helped us in many ways. Athletic con- tests were given many-a-cheer by our Varsity Cheerleader squad. Often we were late getting to school but we seldom had to push ourselves away!! “Stone walls do not a prison make”— but iron bars were another thing! Some of us were enrolled in art classes and many of us who were not so talented contributed our time and efforts in promoting a school savings program.

Staff members were elected from the 1952-53 Journalism II class. Our staff was headed by William Alden- derfer, Editor-in-chief and Edna Munday, Asso- ciate editor. The excellent news pages may be credited to the News editor, Doris Cool and the sports pages, very interesting and informative, were edited by Bob Hardage, Jay Arneson, and Beverly Cooke. The all-important job of obtain- ing advertising and putting the paper into circu- lation was done by Business Manager Frank Estep and Advertising Manager Fred Stevens. The Em Vee Hi would have had difficulty in going to press had it not been for the initi- ative and the diligence of its reporters. Although they are too large in number to name individu- ally, their work can be highly praised. Report- ers were members of the Journalism I class with the exception of three freshmen, who were in- terested in entering journalistic work. Our paper acquired a ‘‘new look” this year, due to the use of regular newsprint and a change from a four to a six page spread, and we included a copy of Rondo, a national newspaper for high schools, in each edition. Our printer this year was Mr. Benjamin Mews of Manassas.

ART CLUB A large group, a new and talented sponsor, a lovely new room and many styles of art appre- ciation combined to form the art club this year. To show their appreciation for the use of the new art department, the club gathered a large selection of pictures and illustrations dem- onstrating the basic theories of design, color, composition, and rhythm. These illustrations were permanently filed to be used as reference material by future art classes. The annual art exhibit and contest was again sponsored by the club. Throughout the year the members increased in their knowledge of the practical application of art. Left to right: Darlene Thornton, treasurer; Sylvia Brown, secretary; Jack Myers, reporter; Janice Har- low, vice-president; Joe Brown, president. 24 The Key Club of Mount Vernon is spon- sored by the Kiwanis Clubs of Alexandria and Woodbridge. This is an honorary club for boys; the members are selected on the basis of scholar- ship and citizenship and must be approved by the principal, the faculty sponsor, and members of the club. The motto of this organization, “We Build”, is very appropriate as the chief objective of the club is to gain experience in those civic activi- ties which will benefit the school in every way possible. Some of the many activities of the club are the annual P.T.A. membership drive, the spring hobby show, a cake-baking contest and sale, the sale of Easter seals, and the daily raising and lowering of the flag.

QUILL AND SCROLL An International Society for High School Journalists, the Quill and Scroll selects candi- dates for admittance by their superior work in writing for, editing, or managing a high school publication. Members must be either Juniors or Seniors in the upper third of their class. A magazine consisting of stories, poems, essays and illustrations contributed by the stu- dents is the future dream of the Quill and Scroll. Two delegates representing the Quill and Scroll at the Southern Interscholastic Press Association Conference in Lexington gathered facts about editing and managing such a magazine. Left to right: Miss Trimmef and Miss Lowman, co-spon- sors; Tommy Downey, vice-president; Edna May Mun- day, president, and Ann Conner, secretary-treasurer. The Lawrence Washington Chapter of the National Honor Society was organized to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, a desire to render service, to promote worthy leadership, and to encourage the development of character through- out the entire student body of the school. This chapter is composed of members of the junior and senior classes chosen on the basis of scholarship, character, cooperation, person- ality, and leadership. They must also have yearly averages of E’s and G’s on each subject for the preceding years in high school. The chapter membership was increased in February when eleven juniors and one senior were invited into the club.

A., and also a mem- ber elected as president of the Martha Washing- ton Federation of F. H. A. Other activities included a slumber party, hot dog sales, group church attendance, installa- tion of officers with a reception for parents and guests, and helping with other Chapter and Fed- eration work.

FUTURE TEACHERS OF AMERICA 1 1 ■ • I ’ 1 L M | fT vN W -a s | ,-j The George C. Gillingham Future Teach- ers’ Club was instituted January 24, 1950, to en- courage pupils to enter the teaching field. An effort was made to acquaint each member with the advantages and disadvantages connected with the profession. Each year the club sponsors the March of Dimes Drive, a Mother and Daughter Banquet, a visit to a Teacher’s College, and other activi- ties which further interest in the field of teach- ing. Membership is limited to those students in- terested in teaching and who have a high scholarship average and whose qualifications in- dicate a definite teaching ability. For the first time this year the School Sav- ings Program was conducted by this club. Seated: Martha Allen, president. Standing, left to right: Donna Ogle, secretary; Berdina Greer, vice-president; Juanita MacDonald, treasurer; Lucille Wells, assistant secretary. 30 During the past year eighty-eight per cent of the students used our school buses for tra ns- portation. Even though our buses more than tripled in number, and in passengers hauled since 1946, the volume of discipline problems remained approximately the same. This, of course, indicated that we were getting better co- operation each year from our students. Our excellent safety record has been main- tained through conscientious effort put forth by our patrolmen and bus drivers, whose success depended upon the cooperation they received from the student body. Let us give a rousing cheer to all those who so faithfully served, not only as patrolmen or bus drivers, but also as cooperative passengers on our school buses.

Under the direction of our teacher and sponsor, Mr. Ray Hagerty, we studied the basis of dramatics and acting, as well as our actual play productions. At Christmastime, we produced our annual play for the PTA, which was “The Road to Bethlehem” , by Graham Dubois. In the cast were Dick Merlo, Marilyn Schebish, Virginia Hine, Mar- garet Ann Duncan, Brad Eney, Ronnie Gupton, Alec O’Neil and Virginia Ken- nedy. We were very pleased with the reception received of our play and hope lot an equal amount of success with our production of William Shakespeare’s “The Taming Of The Shrew”. We look forward to the completion of our auditorium, and the day when we can produce a full-length play. A local, state and national organization, the Distributive Club, is made up of members enrolled in Distributive Education classes. It has become one of the most active and well-known organizations at Mount Vernon. All sixteen members work in various jobs selling either goods or services. They leave school at 12:00 and report to work at 1:00 P.M. The biggest event of the year was the Employer-Employee Banquet, which was held in the Hot Shoppe’s Banquet Room. All members invited their bosses and the occasion proved to be quite successful. Another highlight of the year was the State Distributive Education Convention in Rich- mond. Speeches given by D. E. students, the selection of the honor club of the state, and speeches by well-known men in the field of re- tailing highlighted the convention.

The club is composed of boys and girls from the eleventh grade who are majoring in the commercial field. Activities of the year in- cluded movies relating to the business field, speakers from various business concerns to demonstrate the different types of business machines, and a field trip to a few of the business offices in Washington to gain a better understanding of the pro- cedures that take place in the business field.

BIBLE CLUB The Bible Club was organized this past year for the first time here in our school. The main purpose of this group was to study and learn more about the Bible, and to apply their learning to everyday living. Their chief aim was to be able to read the scriptures and to in- terpret them. The planning and presenting of morning chapel services was also one of their chief duties. These services were held each morning in room 203 . When the cafeteria was opened it was our responsibility to have table grace at each lunch shift. Through this activity a deeper feeling of reverence was noticeable during the lunch hour. The club officers for the year were: Alouise Witbeck, president; Maurice Briggs, vice-presi- dent; Mary Jo Sumler, secretary-treasurer; Jackie Satterwhite, reporter and Miss Mary Horn, sponsor. 36 First row, left to right: Pat Adams, Marcia Smith, Faye McKenzie, Cecelia Seravalli, Dorothy Wright, Virginia Kennedy.

Meetings were held at the homes of the girls on alternate Wednesday nights. Each hostess served dinner, and several of the meet- ings turned into gay parties.

This scene is just one moment of the annual game between Fairfax and M. V ' . This game, played on Thanksgiving Day, clinched the county title for the Majors. Final Score: M. V. 40-Fairfax 0. The Majors made a long gain against the G. W. Presidents before being tackled in this action shot. Both teams fought hard all the way but the speedy Majors outran the Presidents to capture the game and the coveted Jack Tulloch trophy. 42 P Unty ACTION in the iiosity For the first time in our history we beat G. V. of Alexandria in football. It is no wonder to you either, as you view this excellent display of tackling and blocking by the M. V. squad. Final ■ tally— 18-15— a thriller all the way! ! As the title says— there is “plenty of action in the story”— The “Turkey-Day Tilt” with Fair- fax always provides plenty of. thrills for the crowd. This pile-up is no exception and is a familiar scene in any hard fought game. 43 Mount Vernon Mount Vernon Mount Vernon Mount Vernon Mount Vernon Mount Vernon Mount Vernon Mount Vernon .

The majors suffered a tremendous loss, last June, when Sisselberger, Darr, West, Kauf- man and Lopez, of the 1951-52 basketball team departed via the graduation route. This left the Majors the task of rebuilding without the hard core of experience that is so vital to success on the court. This year’s team, though largely green and inexperienced, faced many of the best teams in the area and the state. Bill Edmondson, the only holdover from last year’s starting five, quickly grasped the state scoring lead when he registered thirty- three points against Fairfax in the opening game. With over twenty points per game average, Bill led the state scoring race for most of the season. The most exciting game of the season was played with Fairfax in the final game of the County Tournament. Davie Davis’s one hand shot in the closing seconds of the game gave Mount Vernon a 38-36 victory and the tournament trophy. I. V.

However, Wells Field House was not always available and weather permitting, practice was held outdoors at school. One of the greatest accomplishments of the season was winning over Fairfax. For the first time here at Mount Vernon a Girls’ J.V. Basketball team was organized. This scrappy young team remained undefeated ex- cept for one game. They gained much experi- ence on the court that will be very helpful to them when they play for the Varsity team next year. First row, left to right: Ruth Chappelle, Sylvia Brown, Roberta Leary.

HOCKEY!! 1 During the fall the clatter ot sticks and the screaming voices of excited players could be heard almost every evening on the new hockey field behind the stadium. The faithful j coaches. Miss Harvey and Mrs. Wilson, were always there to help the girls gain better tech- niques in their game. Fairfax proved to be the only obstacle in the pathway toward a perfect season. To add to the happiness of the girls, the student body was permitted to leave classes in order to see one of the games. The team ended the season quite success- fully by tying with Fairfax for the champion- ship in Northern Virginia. Six girls were chosen to play on the Northern Virginia Team in the State Allied B Hockey Tourna- ment at Williamsburg. This team won against both the East and West teams. To top off the season, the captain of the team, Virginia Stauss, was chosen for the All-State Hockey Team.

Aside from the usual thrilling football game, an exciting half-time show was staged by the band, with the crowning of the Queen the feature attraction. Three girls from each of the five classes were selected to be members of the Queen’s court. Each class was in- stantly recognized, for colors were used to identify each class group. The night was crisp but the spirit and enthusiasm was not chilled by the cold. Majorettes served as an honor guard and the band furnished a mood of seren- ity throughout the ceremony.
