The Student Cooperative Association, the
governing body of which every student is a
member. consists of a Senate and a House of
Representatives. The representative body is
made up ot' an elected member from each
homeroom: the senatorial body is composed
ol' two Senators from each class. The Execu-
tive members are elected at the close of each
school year and become ollicially active at the
beginning of each school year.
This year the SCA undertook to revise the
constitution: Linder the proposed system a
place of the cabinet and the senate. This
system. it is hoped. will prove much more
convenient and workable. The SCA shouldered
the full responsibility of promoting and handl-
ing the magazine campaign and the publica-
tion of the Student Handbook. Also. a system
for the co-ordination of the independent clubs
was established to better intra-club relations.
Funds were allocated to the Newspaper and
the Yearbook and to other clubs as the need
arose. One of the major accomplishments of
the year was the pact with Mr. Landes to
council consisting of a balanced number of
elected and appointed members will take the

retakes but they hnally met their deadline with much
hard work and a few extra working sessions after

an has always taken pride in the development of his
body as well as his mind. Athletics are the practical means
of making possible this frequently neglected manner of de-
velopment. Even more important than this. however. is the
creation of a sense of fair play that must be a fundamental part
of every athletic program. Through keen sportsmanship the
spirit of Mount Vernon was born. This spirit will live as long
as we have enough pride to respect that for which it stands.
Three cheers for the Maroon and Gray!

Marty-Lentz hit the basket for 604 points during the season
with Toni Booterbaugh racking up a total of 178 points. In
our encounter with Madison High. we scored the most points

by only six points to Annandale in the Northern Virginia
Tournament. we consider our boys a great aggregation. When

The Major "diamond men" could well be masters of the
sport this season. Coach Yednock has many returning letter-
men who form a nucleus, around which the team can function.
Reports are that any opposing team can look for strong com-
petition when they encounter our boys. We have in our favor
a tremendous pitching staff comprised of Teddy Monroe,
Barry Bowers, Vince Strayhorn, Bill Pacella and Pete King.
Coach Yednock says Arnold Cash, Francis Cash, Frank
Moser, Bill DeVor, Bod Odom and Art O'Neal can be de-
pended upon for consistant hitting power. Assistant Coach
Ted Colna, a new-comer to the coaching staff, is expected to
prove very beneficial by coaching on the base paths.

Junior Varsity Season Begins
Promising Girl Athletes
Seventy-eight girls reported for try-outs for
both the Junior Varsity and Varsity teams, and
after several weeks of intensive training, thir-
teen girls were picked for the Varsity squad
and fourteen for the Junior Varsity aggregation.
The Varsity team opened its season on April
7, against Annandale with an experienced
group of girls, having lost only two games last
season. Of the thirteen Varsity members only
two are making their debut in the sport.
Both teams follow the same playing sched-
ule, however, the Junior Varsity team did not
open its season until April 21, at which time
they played McLean. From all reports to date,
we can expect a good showing from these hard-
working girlsg for team spirit and clean sports-

rom the earliest times men have lived in groups. Each
group attempted to find ways by which the adult members
beforetheir death Could teach theirichildren all that had been
learned in the past. Of course the purpose of these teachings
was to help the children more readily solve problems which
would arise in the future. The dependency of the untrained
youth on the adults, already in possession of cultural inherit-
ance, is the basis of all education. Hence, the result is our
present day school system. Our four high school years, the
most important years of our maturing period, we, as students,
begin to realize that knowledge is the framework on which
a civilization grows and prospers.

The Class 61960
Mrs. Catherine Cooley
The class of nineteen hundred and sixty has at last reached its ultimate goal-graduation. During
previous years our teachers and faculty advisors have strived to train and prepare us for -this major
step in life. When we first traveled the hallowed halls of Mount Vernon as eighth graders, we were
uncertain and overwhelmed at the new mode of life. As freshmen the pattern of school life showed
more promiseg however, there still remained-the ever present feeling of seniority at which much awe
and foreboding were displayed. Our sophomore year found us enveloped in college preparatory sub-
jects and showed the formation of a desire for a more active role in extra-curricular activities. With
the junior year a more serious outlook on life was developed. We began to accept more responsibility
and showed an interest in the development of the school. The senior year approached without a full
realization from us of what was expected and required. The talents used to decorate for the Sno-Ball.
the endless time spent on Brigadoon and the many other activities-the effort used to promote a
better Student Cooperative Association, proved our class to be one of the best to graduate from
Mount Vernon High.

The class of nineteen hundred sixty-one
looks anxiously foreward to the senior year,
anticipating new-found honor, privileges and
hard work. We begin to fully realize the
importance of our education as we are sub-
mitted to new tasks such as College Board
Examination and scholarship tests.
This was an eventful year for the junior
classmen-our first year at the Prom, our
excitement while ordering and receiving
class rings and finally oilicialy being deemed
with the title of upperclassmen.

When we entered Mount Vernon this year as
sophomores we had the feeling that we were finally
attending a school in which we were an important
part. Our classmates began accepting many extra-
curricular responsibilities, as well as, developing a
true respect for scholarship. We were beginning to
feel like upperclassmen at last.
Although our Sophomore year held many tri-
umphs and disappointments, we will meet a still
more challenging test as we return next September

As the future class of nineteen hundred sixty-thre
we spent a well-filled year in the hallowed halls of oli
M.V. We learned that it was rather important to get ti
class on time, for one reason or another, or that thi
Majors were capable of beating Groveton when a trophj
was involved, and each of us made a vow never tt
harrass the eighth grade. We began to understand whj
x + y : z, and how and why the Constitution wa
written. We envied the hurried, excited life of the Senior
and wished for the time when we would take their places
And so it is--next year we will return as sophomore
and then in time we shall also wear the robes of dis

Young artists try their skill at charcoal
and the honor 0 our school.
The Class M1964
ln the years to come the class of nineteen
hundred and sixty-four will grow and progress
into the leaders of tomorrow. Soon the new-
ness of high school will wear off and these
hustling youngsters begin to realize the ser-
iousness of the world of knowledge. As eighth
graders there are many things we looked for-
ward to: the opportunity of supporting and
participating in the athletic program, the
games we beat Groveton byua single touch-
down or basket, our first English theme, the
Prom. honors and privileges which come as

upperclassmen, and hnally a long awaited.
rather sadly anticipated graduation.
This year the eighth grade consisted of ap-
proximately 482 students and because of the
limited space in our high school, a portion
of that number attended Waynewood Elemen-
tary for three of their six subjects. Many of
the more ambitious students began the school
year by taking part in a particular sport, the
chorus, cheerleaders, dramatics and other or-
ganizations around the school such as the

"Man from outer space!" is the center of attention in Mrs. Harder's
eighth grade science class.
The smallest comes from the eighth grade while the tallest is a sophomore.
Dennis Rockford and Corliss Saylor "measure" in with Mrs. McQueen.
This science class looks quite interested as they begin a study of clouds.

herever people assemble. a fortunate few of that as-

another. Furthermore the congregation of ambitious. energetic
students must result in an act of some sort-and in this sec-

justly deserve recognition. It is well to recall that honor can
be achieved only through conscientious effort.

cholarship is very properly the most important side oi
high school life. But there are many other activities without
which a high school could not fulfill its ultimate goal of pre-
senting a well-balanced education. From participation in these
extra-curricular activities the student gains an added sense ol
responsibility which is a decided advantage in life alter gradua-
tion. And more valuable than all else is the association and
friendships among students who have similar interests and pur-

National Honor Society members spent a busy and eventful year.
One of the major tasks of the year was that of raising money to in-
crease the scholarship fund. The scholarship will be awarded to a
deserving senior who needs financial help--the senior need not
necessarily be a member ol' the Honor Society. One means of ac-
quiring money was the operation of a bookstore where paper bound
editions of approved literature were sold. Ball point pens were also
sold as another way of acquiring needed funds.
The tutoring service was again offered to students who were in
need ol' additional coaching. These after school sessions were held
only with the approval of the classroom teacher and the honor
The Honor Rolls each six weeks were prepared by Honor Society
members and were displayed in the glass case in the main hall. The
club sponsored a sock hop and also sent delegates to two area con-

In the past year in the Junior Honor Society. our
efforts have been concentrated on money-making activ-
ities. We sponsored a sock hop after one of the basket-
ball games. We planned on establishing a lund to
pay for college entrance exams. Another goal was
to conduct interesting meetings and to obtain the reg-
ular attendance of all members.
At the beginning of the year we elected Mr. Higgi-
son as our sponsor and. along with the Senior Honor
Society. sponsored a "College Night".

To create and promote good spirit and
sportsmanship was the primary purpose of the
Pep Club. To foster these principles, car cara-
vans and busses to away games were provided,
lag sales on special days were launched by club
members and pep rallies and bon fires were
held with large attendance. The Art Depart-
ment cooperated immensely and helped with
suitable posters which were displayed around
the halls of our school. Many new cheers se-
cured by our cheerleaders and in turn were
taught to the student body-and the highlight
of the year was the float that was built by
Pep Club members and made its debut at
the half-time show of the Homecoming game.
The club is to be commended for its ex-
cellent participation and interest through-
out the school year and the fostering of good
clean sportsmanship among spectators and
teams to victogf.

Our Dramatics Club spent a busy year-many hours of
work, sweat and tears went into the production of "Brigadoon"
which was acclaimed, by all who attended, to be an out-
standing piece of work by both actors and directors. The club
also produced "The Lottery" and a cutting from "Midsummers
Nights Dream". A three act play was the highlight of the
spring season. Throughout the school year approximately sixty
short plays and scenes from various plays were produced
during school hours. Many members of the club attended
other school plays in Washington. During the spring a play
writing contest was open to the student body and the two
Miss Messick winning plays were produced by the Dramatics Club.

Serving coffee and doughnuts to the faculty
two mornings during National Education week
was one of the highlights of the Future
Teachers Club this past session. At this time
each teacher and administration was presented
a red felt tag with National Education week
printed on it which was to be worn for the
entire week. Later in the school year the club
honored the faculty with an after school tea.
The purposes of the club are to develop in-
terest in the teaching profession, to promote
professional leadership, to acquaint prospec-
tive teachers with the local, state. and national
teaching organizations, to prepare its members
in every possible way for the teaching profes-
sion, and to develop desirable qualities in its
members in order that they may be good
leaders in the field of education.
Five girls were sent to Roanoke to represent
Mount Vernon at the annual state convention
and six girls attended the county meeting at
Lee High. ln March we visited George Wash-
ington University in order to get an idea of
college and campus life. One of our social
functions of the year was the party given for
Sue Wallace who left us to journey to France.

Talk-talk-talkg That's all you hear about the
place. especially when the Debate Club is
practicing. This year the resolution concerned
governmental control of trade unions. ln the
beginning of the year. we did not know what
a trade union was: now we are trying to decide
whether to be Senators and control these in-
stitutions or become union organizers and pre-
sent to Congress the true face of labor.
As usual. we had a heavy year of practice
and tournament debates. and though our mem-
bership was entirely "green"-all of our vet-
erans having left for college or Europe-we
did hold our own. winning our share of the
matches. In February we shone at the Uni-
versity of Virginia's Conference for Debators.
and we Closed the year with a round of social
events--from which we barred all thoughts of
Congress and of Labor.

There was a bit of trouble this year getting
the boys to turn out for the various Forensics
activities, they were so bashfulg but the girls-
our timid maidens-were not half so reluctant,
and--as usual-the competition between them
was rife. There were so many good per-
formances, the judges often found it most dif-
ficult to make a final decision.
Our school has always been strong in the
regional and State tournaments. and this year,
too, Mt. Vernon will have to be the school to
beat if one hopes to win a first place trophy.
