" Both Pete and Marie are Senior Class Officers. The " Most Studious " members of the Senior Class, George Weickhardt and Erin Fleming, take a moment away from their studies to read the comics. 68 Shines on There couldn ' t be any doubt as to why Cherie Longeway and Rick Oginz were selected by members of the Senior Class as the " Most Origi¬ nal " boy and girl in their class. Annually the Senior Class selects, by popular vote, members of the class to receive special recognition. One boy and one girl is chosen to claim the title of one of the eight categories. It may be noted that, while the honor was received during their final year, the winners have been strong contenders for these titles throughout their high school career. Time and time again, those selected have illustrated that they merit this distinction. Joe Vaughan and Ann Lockett celebrated their victory of being voted the " Most Likely To Suc¬ ceed " by illustrating the fact that one has to start somewhere! 69 Senior Patricia Jones and Tom Meeks were selected by their class mates as the " Most Talented. " Tom starred in the fall play, " Time Out for Ginger, " and Pat is the President of the Drill Team. Dennis Dahlquist offers Carolyn Arthur a ride in his Convertible to celebrate their being chosen as the " Best Dressed " members of the Senior Class. 70 Celebrities The " Outstanding Leaders " of the Senior Class, as chosen by their class mates, were Barbara Dority and Tollie Besson. Barbara was captain of the Drill team and Tollie was Mount Vernon ' s Student Council President. The " Most Athletic " students are Carolyn Cline and John Valiante. Carolyn was able to defeat John in our game of Tic-Tac-Toe but their ath¬ letic ability surpasses beyond this game. 71 The Class of 1963 Junior Class Officers, left to right: Tom Gallahan, vice Barbara Kimberlin, secretary-treasurer.

An extensive athletic program for both boys and girls is available at Mount Vernon. Girls ' competi¬ tive sports include, hockey, basket¬ ball and softball, while the boys ' program includes football, basket¬ ball, wrestling, track and baseball. Your enthusiastic support of the games, matches and meets greatly helped to spur our teams to vic¬ tory. Mighty Majors Complete Best Record in School’s History A team of destiny, a Cinderella team; these are but two of the names applied to Mount Vernon ' s 1961 Northern District football champions. Under the watchful eye of " Fairfax County Coach of the Year " Jack Miller and the leadership of co-captains John Valiante and Tollie Besson, the Majors com¬ pletely disregarded preseason prognostications and pro¬ ceeded to record the finest won-lost record (9-1) in Mount Vernon History. Armed with the unbeatable combination of hustle, desire, and ability, the Majors turned out for practice on August 15, after many had spent one week at Camp Rappahannock re¬ viewing different aspects of the game and learning new tech¬ niques- In less than four months, football, formerly a word with little meaning to Mount Vernon students, was transformed into a thing of beauty.

Coach George White ' s Junior Varsity eleven split the schedule this season as they bettered last year ' s record by one game with wins over Annandale, Osbourn, and Lee and losses to George Washington, Groveton, and Hammond. The all-sophomore squad bounced back from two shutout defeats to end its season with a convincing 26-14 rout of the rival Lee Lancers. Many of the baby Majors will join the Varsity next year as it defends its title. Coach Tom Propp ' s Freshman team suffered two one- point defeats at the hands of Annandale and Groveton, but bounced back to dump Falls Church, 14 to 7, and post a 1-5 season record. With a year ' s experience now under their belts, these young Majors stand ready to bolster the J.V. and Varsity ranks in years to come.

Lacking the height of past teams, this year ' s varsity basketball squad built its attack around hustle and a strong defense. For the first time in several years, coach Skinner employed a full-court press. An excellent defense borrowed from the West Virginia Mountaineers proved valuable in offsetting the height disadvantage. The Majors worked as a close unit with new offensive plays and zone defenses. The brunt of the scoring load was carried by back- court men Pacella, J. Chapman, Vavra, Robey, and Pergler. Pergler, Nase, King, S. Chapman and Robinson carried rebounding responsi¬ bilities for the Major cagers. Yourtee missed a good deal of the season with an ankle injury. Coach Skinner must be given a good deal of credit for molding a well-balanced team in a " rebuilding " year. 108 The 1961-1962 Major Cagers KNEELING, left to right: B. Pergler, B. Pacella, B.

Coach Arch Taylor ' s baby Majors also suffered from a height dis¬ advantage this season, but had excellent shooting and, like the varsity, plenty of hustle and spirit. The junior varsity cagers de¬ pended on Eston and Gieseman for rebounding and on Anderson, Hofler and Grahm for its scoring punch. Climax of the early season action was the J.V ' s double-overtime victory in which Hofter hit the nets on three occasions to tie the Hammond Admirals and finally to pull ahead of the rival five. As most of the varsity cagers will grad¬ uate this June, next year ' s team will depend upon many of these fine junior varsity boys. Though no signs of relief are foreseen for the height problem, coach Skinner will have his pick of some very fine basketball talent next year.

Attendance and stu¬ dent interest improved greatly over last season. Despite several forfeits due to wrestlers failing to make their weights, coach Font ' s Major grapplers received outstanding performances from its main¬ stays in fighting its way to the best record in its short existence. Outstanding members of the squad were John Soukey, 120 lbs.; Dennis Rochtford, heavyweight; and three year veterans Ron Seward, 138 lbs., and Jim Jenkins, 154 lbs. Coach Fant stated that this year ' s team was the most powerful and colorful squad he has ever coached. KNEELING, left to right: J. Jenkins, M. McKelvie, B. Casteel, D. Rochford, E. Davis, E.

Under the coaching of Miss Laura Lanks, the varsity hockey team completed a creditable season. The girls started slowly, but, as the season progressed, their spirit and enthusiasm improved. Team captains were Maggie Wilson and Carolyn Cline, the latter being high scorer for the year. The team compiled a season record of 3 wins, 1 tie, and 4 losses, beating Falls Church, Fairfax, and McLean. The highlight of the season was a convinc¬ ing 5-1 victory over McLean, one of the teams ' biggest rivals. Despite the record, next year ' s team should possess more experience and know-how. Outstanding underclass¬ men Jean McCullough, Pat Kursh, and Missy Smith will re¬ turn along with Mary Anne Dinowsky, Lolly Frick, Julie Wigel, and Marcia Sommerlin.

Four of the contests, Fair¬ fax, Lee, Herndon, and McLean, ended in ties. The only loss of the season was an exciting 2-0 game with Madi¬ son. The Groveton game, first of the season, proved to be their best. On a goal by forward Lynn Haseman, the Majors nosed out our archrivals. Betty Keahey and Donna Graham served as team captains for the 1961-62 season. The team was made up of freshmen and sophomores, and most of the girls will graduate to the varsity ranks next season. With the valuable experience they have obtained, these girls should be able to help the varsity team produce a winning season. 115 Baseball Experienced Players Produce . . . With an eye towards the post season. Northern Dis¬ trict diamond tournament and a possible league cham¬ pionship, Coach John Yednock ' s Majors embarked on a fourteen game schedule with an array of talented performers. Seven lettermen dotted the Majors ' 1962 roster as they began practice in late February, includ¬ ing southpaw (All-Fairfax County) pitcher Bill Pacella. To augment the loss of eleven members of last year ' s team. Coach Yednock turned to junior varsity gradu¬ ates and transfers who responded with a great deal of hustle and determination — trademarks of all Mount Vernon athletic teams. Under the watchful eyes of Coach Yednock and as¬ sistant Ted Colna the Majors quickly developed into a smooth operating aggregation capable of cutting down the opposition easily.

Only four lettermen were on hand as junior varsity baseball coach Ed Taylor began the arduous task of fielding a representative team. The record turnout of seventy eager freshman and sophomore boys intent on nailing down the various berths opened to them. Coach Taylor, in his third year at the helm of the little Majors, looked for steady improvement from his youthful players throughout the season despite an apparent lack of experience. With an accent on developing his spirited performers slowly. Coach Taylor and the little Majors ' hearty followers nevertheless expect many front line performers to step into the varsity wars next year with ease and fill the holes created by graduation. Mount Vernon Expands Mount Vernon ' s intramural program has been growing steadily over the past three years. This year, under the direction of Mr. Taylor, Mr. Propps, and Miss Degree, both fall and spring programs were established. In the fall, the boys intramural basketball program was divided into two leagues, junior and senior. Lou Anderson ' s " Frogs " won the junior league crown, then dropped a 35-33 decision to the junior all-stars. Bob Pergler ' s " Gob¬ blers " took the senior championship and went on to de¬ feat the senior all-stars 63-43. Scoring leaders were John Chapman (17.6-senior) and John Raftery (9.3- junior). Bill Pacella and Danny Bonner won the re¬ spective foul-shooting titles. Also in the fall, Bob Edel- man won the ping-pong tournament. A success¬ ful bowling league continued throughout the year. Spring saw the formation of an intramural volleyball league for boys,- girls teams were organized in volley¬ ball, tumbling and gymnastics. 118 Intramural Program Barbara Ray and Ginger Frank team up in Miss Degree coaches her gymnastic group, ping-pong.

A turnout of ninety boys, largest in history, had head coach Mike Snyder and his able assistant John Miller beaming before the season opened with the Fairfax County Relays. The Major thinclads were greatly handicapped by not having a track of their own, but this did nothing to dampen the squad ' s spirit. A track at nearby Fort Belvoir provided the Majors with a practice ground, while the Groveton High track was utilized as the site for all " home " meets. Challenged by a tough schedule, which included six dual and tri meets, Mount Vernon ' s cindermen took dead aim at all exist¬ ing school, Fairfax County, and Northern District track records. The Majors, while exhibiting a balanced team, showed their great¬ est strength in the distance running events.

Although several games were cancelled due to snow, both the varsity and junior varsity girls ' basketball teams completed exciting and success¬ ful seasons. Because of the longer school day and a crowded practice schedule, the girls ' teams practiced at 7 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Despite a lack of previously lettered players, the teams performed well throughout the season under rookie coaches Pavis and Zachary. The varsity compiled a 6-4 record, aver¬ aging 35.6 points per game while holding their opponents to 30.5 points per contest. Leading scorers were Pat Kursch (17.5), Cathy Clark (13.5), and Missy Smith (7.5). Top-. Majors battle for a rebound off the offensive board.

Coach Lanks began the season hoping her proteges would dominate the county scene. The varsity opened their season by blasting their arch-rival Groveton, 14-6. Only three members of last year ' s team were absent as they took steps to wrap up their third straight county title. Good pitching, tight defensive play, and sharp hit¬ ting was the combination the Majors used throughout the season to foil enemy nines. Coached by Miss Betty Whitehead, a newcomer to our ranks this year, the junior varsity team played a six-game schedule while gaining voluble experience. Sixteen spirited girls, all freshmen and sophomores, were included in the team ' s roster. Only one player was held over from the 1961 team, which meant there had to be a period of rebuilding. Coach Whitehead anticipates that her team will hold its own against any Fairfax County opponent, and finish with a record season.

Casual gathering of the S.C.A. officers, left to right, is first vice-president, J. Valiante,- secretary, D. Henry; treasurer, J. Sommerville,- second vice-president, D. Hightower. The Student Cooperative Association underwent a major revamping process this year. The officers worked throu ghout the summer to draw up new plans, thus meeting the school year with a well formulated slate of activities. The first project undertaken this year was the publica¬ tion of a new up-to-date student directory. Many long hours of hard work resulted in the successful completion of its first goal. Throughout the football season, the S.C.A. supported pep rallies and distributed cheers and school songs. When the magazine campaign descended upon the school, this organization shouldered the responsibility for the drive. The student assembly voted funds to needy clubs and passed many new regulations to meet the needs of an ever-expanding student body. One of the most important accomplishments of the S.C.A. was the establishment of a Northern Virginia Assembly. President Besson, working closely with other Group 1-A high schools, founded this organization which is designed to aid Assembly presidents in hand¬ ling any problems they may encounter. The association sent delegates to the State Convention where many ideas were exchanged and a better understanding of the objectives of the S.C.A. was attained. S.C.A.

Beginning the year, they held a coke party to stimulate interest in their organization,- they also at¬ tended federation meetings and the State Convention to further their knowledge of homemaking. As in years past, bake sales were held, the club made a field trip to the Ice Capades, and co-sponsored the annual beauty contest.

Just to be ab¬ solutely sure, check with a first-year Latin student who participated in a fashion show which featured the current styles; or, better yet, take a careful look at the snap below. At the beginning of the year, the Latin Club estab¬ lished four guiding aims: to promote interest in Latin and Greek, to cultivate the qualities of leadership and under¬ standing, to teach the history and customs of the Ancient World, and to promote interest in our government. In order to fulfill these aims, the Club held a Roman banquet, fashion shows, and made a field trip to see KING OF KINGS. Through participation in these various activities this past year, Latin students found that they had acquired a greater understanding and appreciation of Latin and the Roman culture. 163 Ladies Study French FRENCH CLUB Officers and Sponsor, ' left to right: J.

To stir up school spirit, the club held pep rallies and made posters for display announcing the coming games. The club members sponsored an " Emphasis Week " dur¬ ing football season, and provided buses to the games held away from our school. Through the sponsorship of two faculty basketball games and a fund raising cam¬ paign, the Pep Club purchased football jackets for our record-breaking team. With a student body at an all high, the club found a rich field of spirit to harvest. This serving as an added stimulus, the perpetuation of good sportsmanship on the part of the students and the players was actively undertaken by the Pep Club this past year.

Students participating in the Distributive Education program were engaged in a canned food and toy drive, a shopping sur¬ vey, and field trips. They attended an Em¬ ployer-Employee Appreciation Banquet, monthly luncheon meetings, and local con¬ test meetings. The aim of fhe D.E. program is to give students on-the-job training in dis¬ tribution and marketing in addition to class¬ room instruction. D. E., a cooperative train¬ ing program which permits the students to attend school for half a day before leaving for his job, has proved valuable in gaining job experience and in developing an under¬ standing of the social and economic respon¬ sibilities of those engaged in distribution in a free competitive society. 184 In and Out of School Remember them . . . the ones who took you to the office?

A good illustration is the lunch problem. If you ' re late to lunch, you can ' t get in,- if you finish early, you can ' t get out. Nevertheless, the patrols are there for a de¬ finite purpose; they have a job, and they do it well. They are, FIRST ROW, left to right: K. Pendley, T. Owens, B. King, N. Clayton, J. Ashcraft.
