THE SURVEYOR Presents Its Silver Anniversary Edition The 1965 Surveyor, with commentaries and pic¬ tures, endeavors to illustrate the accomplishments and activities which best represent the 1964-1965 school year. The year’s activities, centered mainly around Mount Vernon’s 25th Anniversary, have been re¬ corded so as to portray this Silver Anniversary Year. The staff hopes that you will find the Surveyor of 1965 a treasury of memories to be cherished, now and in the years to come. 2 i urveyor I 1965 3 The Spiriters, in an effort to promote more school spirit at Mount Vernon this year, staged two major events during the 1964-1965 football season. The first step in promoting the much-needed spirit was the debut of a new mascot on October 23, the night of the Woodson game. The mascot, which may re¬ place Movern, represents Major Lawrence Washing¬ ton, the man who founded Mount Vernon Estates and the historical figure after whom our school team and present mascot were named. Bill Taylor, out¬ fitted in the military uniform of the Colonial Army, portrayed Major Washington. A second activity to encourage student enthusiasm was a bonfire held prior to the Annandale game. The Pep Band, ap¬ pearing at most of the games, also did its part by “drumming-up” spectator spirit and spurring the Majors on to victory.

Landes, our principal, came to Mount Vernon High School in September 1945. This was his first job as a high school principal—as he formerly was principal at Lee-Jackson Elementary School. Mr. Landes began his teaching career thirty-seven years ago, and migrated from his home state of West Virginia to the county of Fairfax in the Old Dominion early in his career. Many changes have taken place since Mr. Landes first arrived in our hallowed halls—the school plant has increased in size, facilities have improved, and there have been an increased number of teachers and students. Unchanged, however, is the diligence, perseverance, personality, solemnness and reverence of a great man, our principal, Mr. Melvin B. Landes. For a quiet evening at home Mr. Landes enjoys watching tele¬ vision, particularly wrestling. As a family man, Mr. Landes shares the warmth of his home with his wife and daughters. Mrs. Landes shares her husband’s interest in civic and church affairs—daughters Jeannie and Paula complete the family circle. 6 a Great Man As a school administrator, Mr. Landes has gained the re¬ spect and love of all who have had the privilege of working with him. He has spent many long hours working with students to help them find themselves and arriving at a proper goal in life. As a religious man and an ordained Minister, Mr. Landes inspires both young and old from the pulpit each Sunday. Surveying the Past Recognizing the old axiom that the past is prologue, these pages represent a unique endeavor to reflect past efforts which have contributed, in some way, to the development of our traditions, our academic life, and our futures. T . A displaced principal, Mr. Landes, awaits completion of his In the spring of 1946, the Junior-Senior Prom was held at the new office. Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C. 8 Austere surroundings but enthusiastic attitudes earmarked Mrs. Parrish’s early library. In 1952, the scene changed as work progressed on a new auditorium, cafeteria, and library. These distinguished students were members of the Student Government Legislative Department in 1946. 9 SCHOOL LIFE Congregating at the book store, students purchase needed supplies for the hectic day ahead. Centered around two basic components, school life at Mount Vernon is both social and academic. Through an active participation in both areas, a student’s horizons are broadened. On these pages, various activities supported by the students of Mount Vernon are depicted, pictorially. May you find these few candid pictures useful in remembering the days you spent at Mount Ver¬ non during this Silver Anniversary Year. Varsity football players, during second lunch shift, held an informal banquet prior to the Falls Church game. 10 MOUNT VERNON STYLE Presenting a slap-stick comedy, students Fran Lawrence, Annabel Graves, Bob Stoner, Marv Ward and Steve Bordner encourage school-wide participation in the annual maga¬ zine campaign. In gym scene of the SCA’s Freshman Orientation play, upperclassmen Marv Ward and Steve Bordner tell “fresh¬ man” Boh Stoner how to Keep Her (an MV girl) In Her Place. Poor Stan, partially hidden by books, helps Key Club raise money in annual Key Club Slave Day. FACULTY AND STUDENTS A happy and memorable occasion, JoAnne Glisson taps Linda Metcalfe into the Keyette Club. Chris Ryan and Susan Walls listen as Miss Yutz assists in translation of French play Tartuffe. Judged on appearance, ingenuity, and connection with subject taught in class, Mr. Thomason’s fourth period won the annual door-decoration contest held by the Senior class at Christmas. ACCENT SCHOOL SPIRIT What is Mount Vernon High School? For some it is a community awhirl with activities and responsibil¬ ities. For others it is, temporarily, a resting place before the venture ahead. Whether Mount Vernon is a center of all of a student’s interests or only a part of a greater existence, the school has a different meaning for each per¬ son. Throughout the Surveyor , there are tangible memories for each stu¬ dent, regardless of how he views Mount Vernon. With precision and quick steps, the Mount Vernon drill team provides entertainment during halftime with a pin-wheel formation. Mr. Landes presents a lively folk song in Mount Vernon Madness, a talent show sponsored by the literary magazine. Led by Varsity and JV Cheerleaders, Seniors participate in pep rally at Senior Hall on day of basketball game with Woodson.

Coaches Jack Miller and Mike Snyder, in order to prepare the Majors for the tough season ahead, in¬ sisted on a program of grueling practices, rigorous exercise, and hard work. The entire season was “touch-and-go” as the Majors faced many hard-hit¬ ting opponents. After the unfortunate loss to Lee, the Majors rose to victory over McLean. Among others, victories over Groveton and Fort Hunt helped to bolster the Majors’ spirits considerably. Although disappointing, any defeat was more than compen¬ sated for by good sportsmanship and unequalled enthusiasm. Without a doubt, the Majors are truly a credit to MVHS. Sept. Sept. Sept. Sept.

The team had the drive and determination of a future winning team for Mount Vernon. The Majors completed the season with three wins, one tie, and four defeats. Even though the defeats out-ranked the wins, the J.V. never stopped fighting. One of their best games was against Woodson: they were trailing in the first half by a score of 0-7; at half-time, Coach Yednock gave a good pep-talk and pointed out their weaknesses; when the game resumed, the almighty Majors came hack to win the game. With this kind of show, the Majors have some¬ thing to look forward to for the 1965 season. 1964 SCHEDULE Mt. Vernon 0 Hammond 27 Mt. Vernon 6 Groveton 0 Mt. Vernon 0 Edison 12 Mt.

Coach Skinner As of the past seasons, the Mount Vernon varsity basketball team has been hindered by the lack of height. But to overcome this hinderance, the team has really shown their drive and de¬ termination against every opponent they met. Even though the Majors finished the season with a record of 3 wins and 14 loses, the team continually played as a unit and exhibited their true sportsmanship of which Mount Vernon can be proud. The 1964-65 Majors were lead by the fine performance of the four returning lettermen: Lawrence, Nazar io, Pollock, and Zanders. Pollock, a two year veteran on the varsity squad, will return next year and with the help of Polden, Josephson, Taylor, Gorski, and Johnson, will bring a winning season for the rising Majors. 130 FRONT ROW : Pulden, Josephson, Taylor, Nazario.

Neverthless, the team has been one of the best balanced ones in the history of our school. Returning wrestlers were Frank Wasuta, Brian Taylor, John Beahm, Charlie Constante, and manager Pete St. Onge. Of these returning, Wasuta, Constants, Beahm, in addition to Doran and Matthews represented Mount Vernon in the State Tournament. Through¬ out the entire season, Constants and Wasuta main¬ tained an undefeated record. Not only did the team function well as indivi¬ duals but as a well-coordinated unit. Considering this fact, Coach Fant anticipates an equally success¬ ful season for 1966.

And, even though the team had an unsuccessful season, score wise, the three returning players and new “materi¬ al” fought their games to a bitter end and exhibited fine team spirit and sportsman¬ ship throughout the season. Next season we have much to look for¬ ward too — the team will be much more experienced and equipped with the same vigor and eagerness to win that was a major facet in the past athletic encounters. It is well to remember that while we play to win — the most important thing is how well we played the game! Varsity and J.V. Schedule January 5 Lee vs. Mt. Vernon 8 McLean vs. Mt.

In December, the SCA’s from Fort Hunt and Groveton combined with us for the Canned Food and Toy Drive. With various clubs and civic groups, the Student Government planned the Silver Anniversary celebra¬ tion in March. After collecting and estimated $1,000 from alumni, students and outside organizations, the SCA gave the school a podium and presented Principal Melvin B. Landes with a suitable gift.

Ability Fred VanAtta, Secretary of Photography. Twenty-five years ago, Mount Vernon was a single, two-story building. The main office was located in the front hall, serving a student body of one-tenth the size of our present enrollment. We know little of the 1940 Student Cooperative Association, for no records of their accomplishments remain. An old yearbook picture is the sole survivor of Mount Ver¬ non’s first proud Student Government. This pride is more than matched by our Silver Anniversary Stu¬ dent Government. Although every SCA probably reminisced about past Student Cooperative Associations, the honor of Created in 1961, the Photo Lab was originally con¬ trolled by the Photo Club. The SCA assumed spon¬ sorship of the lab under the Secretary of Publications when the Photo Club became non-existant last vear. The lab is now used for the development and printing of newspaper, club and SCA pictures at a minimal cost. The Photo Lab is located on the second floor ad¬ joining one of the Art rooms and is equipped with modern equipment. The staff consists of a group of well skilled individuals, who are trained in the tech¬ nology of photography. having been the 25th Anniversary Student Govern¬ ment made us pay special attention as we looked forward into life and prepared for the future. As the 25th Student Government, we became aware of the position of our school. Mount Vernon, one of the oldest scho ols in Fairfax County, ranks scholasti¬ cally above most of the other schools. Yes, there was pride in our Anniversary title, but our fondest hope was that the accomplishments and the traditions we had begun would permanently establish Mount Vernon’s position high in the world of education. ; 11 A iB FRONT ROW: Obermeyer, SanLuis, Huyett, Caudill, Dunn, Hall, Sampson, Godsey, Dunn, Fick, Davis, Hillary, Jones, Dodge, Kelley, Gibbs, and Hinson.

Each of the staff mem¬ bers spent his study hall and yearbook periods taking pictures, editing copy, etc., to meet those ominous deadlines. The procedure of the student’s purchasing this year’s book was changed somewhat. Sales were handled completely by our new and able business manager, Mrs. Gates. The SCA, under the direction of Mr. Match, took charge of financing the book. Each club sold $100 of advertising or paid $40 from its treasury for it’s page in the yearbook. This method proved very effective, and left the yearbook staff with more time to plan lay-outs and take more effective pictures. Helen Savage, and Carolyn Pilch, School Life; Irene Jordan, Clubs; Carol Deeds, School Life; Chris Pappas; and Mary K. Thompson, Clubs work diligently to com¬ plete deadline requirements. In the fall, members of the staff attended the Third Annual Yearbook Forum at American University in Washington, D. C. The day was spent in sessions with various persons concerned with yearbook pub¬ lication. There were many different All-American yearbooks displayed, and the staff had an opportunity to observe the variety used in various publications. Our theme this year emphasizes the twenty-fifth anniversary of Mount Vernon and the various cele¬ bration connected with the event. We hope that in a small way we have succeeded in our goal for we believe it worthy of recognition.

In addition to the publication of the Literary magazine, the Transit staff staged two variety shows during the year featuring both faculty and students. The first, “Mount Vernon Madness,’’ was performed in November before a filled audi¬ torium. The Transit’s “Silver Anniversary Musical Gala” in March, commemorating Mount Vernon High School’s 25th Anniversary, was also a tremendous success.

Key Club Mr. Lawrence Hatch Sponsor Randy Garrett, Bill Taylor, and Steve Strom prepare pancake ingredients during Annual Pancake Breakfast held in school cafeteria. 150 The Key Club proved to be the service organiza¬ tion at Mount Vernon this year. Starting in the fall with a hard core of ten enthusiastic Keys from last year, the club began the season with a large scale voter registration drive in Fairfax County. The very day after this drive, the members aided the sponsoring Kiwanis, serving at their dog show. Then in late September the school Finance Officer’s house caught fire and was badly burned. The fol¬ lowing Saturday the club was there cleaning out the charred and flooded basement and helping in every feasible way. Two weeks later the Keys were back, this time sparked by fifteen handpicked inductees, Key Club bring the total membership to a solid and compact twenty-five. In conjunction with the Kiwanis “Youth Apprecia¬ tion Week,” seven members spoke to and entertained the Alexandria Kiwanis at a special luncheon-meeting. The Key Club devoted its time not only to com¬ munity projects but also made itself appreciated around the school. Building and policing a pep bon¬ fire, serving as waiters at the PTA Benefit Ham Din¬ ner, and sponsoring a non-profit, school-wide skating party were among its school projects. The tremend¬ ously successful Pancake Breakfast provided ample funds for the Keys’ spring service activities. FRONT ROW: D. Lusker, M. Frank, J. Hasle, S. Heyroth, J. Hein, S. Florer, B.

In an effort to increase the understanding and coopera¬ tion between the local clubs and their sponsor, the Mount Vernon Keyettes held a tea for the Alexandria Ki-Wives and the Fort Hunt and Groveton Keyettes. Many of the projects were devoted to raising money for the Keyette National project, the Peace Corps fund, while others involved service within the immediate scope of the school and community. Keyettes served at both the PTA Benefit Ham Dinner and the Key Club Pancake Breakfast; sponsored a Slave Day, as a part of Twirp Week; and held a fashion show, in conjunction with the Key Club. As an added honor, the Keyette Junior representative Bonnie Back was elected the District Presidential candidate to the Keyette National convention. 152 National Thespian Society FRONT ROW: Karla Kappel, president; and Sally Marfing, secretary.

In the past year it has lived up to its motto: “Act well your part, for there the honor lies.” In October the year began with a “night of one-acts” that was produced and directed by Thespians. In My Three Angels, the fall play, Thespian members headed most of the committees. A one-act Echo was entered at the Northern Vir¬ ginia one-act festival at Edison High by the Thespians. There have been a series of clinics to deal with different phases of dramatic art. The first one was a trip to the Essayons Playhouse at Fort Belvoir for a talk on stagecraft. Another was a behind- the-scenes look at the National Theater during its production of Oliver! In its third year at Mount Vernon, nine new members were inducted at a formal induction cere¬ mony in January. This raised the number of members to twenty-six. JBi Jhm 1 ' AiF% M FRONT ROW: J.

Having set their sights on raising $4,000 for new stadium lights, the Spiriters, a newly organized pep club this year, began their fund raising activities even before school got un¬ der way last fall. Donut sales, bake sales, the light bulb campaign, car wash activities, and a new activity with an old twist, pretzel and pickle sales after school have enabled the Spiriters to score a direct hit on their goal for the year. The change in street numbers in the county permitted the Spiriters to capitalize also on the sales of aluminum house numbers to Mount Vernon area subdivisions. The purpose of the Spiriters has been to stimulate and to increase school spirit while supporting the school in its fund raising projects. One of the highlights of the year was the hootenanny last fall that brought singer Don Leace from Washington as guest star, and featured local groups in what has become an annual sing-along event. Sock-hops after foot¬ ball games highlighted the talent of area combos. In supporting school activities, the Spiriters sold pompoms, Major buttons, and pennants. They revived the spirit of the original “Major,” Lawrence Washington, by introducing the mounted Major at football games. Not only athletic events but activities of a more intellectual appeal, such as MV’s participation on WRC TV ' s “It’s Academic,” came in for a rousing boost. The Spiriters donated $200 to the school’s twenty-fifth silver anniversary celebration this year. Throughout the year, the unique posters (over 1,000 in all) of public relations officer, Tom Gorski, and his committee brightened bulletin boards in announcing school events. The decorating talent of the Spiriters at large received its highest compliment when the organization took first place in the hall decorating contest at Christmas time. The one outstanding activity of the year was the mammoth carnival in the spring. It was the first time in recent years that such an event had been attempted. The many varied booths added thrills to amazement in this “another successful venture” by the Spiriters. 154 Spiriters 1.

The Mount Ver non Band, under the direction of Mr. Gene Steinbach, has contributed much to the spirit and atmosphere of the school. At the beginning of the year, no game was complete without the band being present and performing at its best. Pep rallies and bonfires were also supported eagerly by a “pep hand.” In addition to performing in half-time shows, the Marching Rand participated in the George Wash¬ ington Birthday Parade on February 22. The Band then went on to perform in the Apple Blossom Parade Festival on April 30.

The an¬ nual Northern Virginia Band Festival was held on March 20 where the Band did exceptionally well. After this followed the Spring Concert which fea¬ tured soloists, ensemble groups, and other “sur¬ prises.” Finally, the Band finished the year’s ac¬ tivities by playing at the Graduation Ceremony.

The Concert Choir made its second appearance on television when it sang on Woman’s World. The Choir and the Select Girls gave their annual Christmas Concert at Mr. Landes’ church, and for the first time a children’s concert was presented at the Lorton Fire Department by the Select Girls, Madrigals, and Choraleers. The second semester found all the groups busy with preparations for Spring. Members of the Concert Choir, Select Girls’ Chorus, and selected members of the other groups sang at the annual Easter Sunrise Service at Mount Vernon Estate.

Every year Spanish Club members take a trip to Washington Spanish restaurants. In the fall of this year, interested stu¬ dents journeyed to El Bodegon for a delicious dinner. In the spring, a visit was made to La Fonda. Among other “traditional” activities were the Christmas Party and the Spring Fiesta. The Christmas Party was limited to Spanish Club members; however, there were numerous promi¬ nent Spanish-speaking guests in attendance at the Spring Fiesta. At the beginning of the year, a soc-hop was held. It was com¬ bined with a smorgasbord at which Spanish and Mexican foods were served. All profits went to the purchase of Spanish books for the library. The Spanish Club presented the faculty with a clock for the teachers’ lounge. During the Pan Ameri¬ can Week, a trip was made to the Pan American Union, and a bulletin board depicting the week was displayed. Club mem¬ bers and other interested students visited Spanish exhibits in the National Art Gallery. The Club feels it has achieved its purpose of furthering the Spanish culture.

The main pur¬ pose of the society is to honor and to give recognition to outstanding French students. They must have maintained an “A” average in French and a “B” average in all other subjects. Form¬ erly, only French V students were eligible for induction. However, to get a better representation from all, the French Honor Society has recently broadened the scope of its member¬ ship to include French III, IV, and V students. Being primarily an honor institu¬ tion, the French Honor Society has provided time for students to discuss not only certain aspects of French history and culture, but to discuss school issues as well. In addition, doughnuts were sold to pay for ex¬ penses. The French Honor Society has served a dual purpose well. FRONT ROW: S. Hinson, B. Hadovich, secretary; C. Kelly, vice president; and M.

Besides having a high average in Spanish class, the student must want to learn all he can about the Spanish-speaking countries of the world. New members were initiated into the chapter on February 17, 1965 by the President of the Fort Hunt Chap¬ ter. At the initiation ceremonies, our chapter had the pleasure of hearing one of our fellow students, Fernando Banderas, give a vivid talk on life in Equador. The club sponsored various activi¬ ties to raise money to buy Spanish books for the school library and par¬ ticipated in a spring banquet in which all the chapters belonging to the Na¬ tional Society attended. In addition to these activities, the members of the chapter tried to further their educa¬ tion in the field of Spanish. All of the members of the society and the sponsors hope to double the membership in the coming years by encouraging all Spanish students to develop their interest in all activities relating to Spanish.

Our activities have proven to he influential as well as successful. We believe this is due to the fact that our organization consisted of hard- working and loyal members. We gratefully acknowledge Miss Patricia Jacob, our sponsor, who has devoted many long, off-school hours to work on our projects. Our year was highlighted by a new event — a Mardi Gras Dance was held early in March, based on tjie original carnival which takes place on the Riviera. At this costumed affair, a king and queen were crowned on the basis of the originality of their cos¬ tumes. During the year we also participated in the “Alliance for Progress.” Our annual visit to the French Embassy was made in the late spring.

In its third year of existence, the German Club, sponsored by Mrs. Howell, has been more active than ever. Winner of the 1963-64 Outstanding Club Award, it has worked toward its goal of fur¬ thering interest in German language and customs; its membership is made up largely of German lan¬ guage students and those who have lived in Ger¬ many. Celebration of the traditional German festi¬ vals of Oktoberfest and Fasching, a visit to a Ger¬ man restaurant and movies highlighted this year’s activities. Several bulletin boards introducing various parts of Germany were displayed, and the club provided an opportunity for students to taste genuine Ger¬ man food when it served Bratwurst at its dance6. As it looks back on another successful year, the German Club looks forward to leading a long and active life in years to come. FRONT ROW: D. Tipa, J. Doyle, S. Daniel, P. Cobb, C. Wagener, and P.

The Junior Classical League is a na¬ tional organization having for its purpose handing on the torch of classical civiliza¬ tion in the modern world. The Mount Vernon chapter was established in 1957. A style show and a skit began the ac¬ tivities this year. In the fall, many mem¬ bers attended the state convention in Charlottesville. Elections were held there for state officers and Mount Vernon’s vote was proudly cast for the Fairfax County candidate. Listening to panel discussions and watching the skits gave a deeper un¬ derstanding of ancient culture and its importance. March 15, the Ides of March, began Latin Week. The relationship of Roman culture to modern life was conveyed by posters, projects, and speeches. A slave auction and a sock hop were highlights. A field trip to the National Art Gallery climaxed the week’s activities. FRONT ROW: C. Graber, S. O ' Shea, J. Kelly, A. Leary, S. Emig, D. Hammond, and J. Davis. SECOND ROW: J. Ells¬ worth, A.

The Mount Vernon High School Biology Club has as its purposes: the development and increase of school interest in the study of Biology, the sharing in an informal way an extension of experiences of special interest which are the outgrowth of classroom experiences, the development of skills in hobbies in¬ volving living things, and the development of ideas and projects of a service nature. These projects may enable members, working collectively, to leave Mount Vernon High School a more attractive Alma Mater. The Club’s “pet project” is the development of the south courtyard into a lovely garden. Some of the plants for the garden were donated. Others were pro¬ vided from funds earned by the Club through dough¬ nut sales. The accessory installations also were pro¬ vided for by this fund. With a membership of forty, the Club has had a notable upsurge of interest and activities. Well at¬ tended Club meetings gave rise to social highlights such as the Masquerade Party at Halloween and the Pizza Party held in February. The field trips and garden work of the second semester were among our most delightful and rewarding activities. FIRST ROW: Grubbs, Dodge, Weistling, Keyes, SanLuis, and Shaver.

Since its birth in May 1960, the Mount Vernon Girls’ Drill Team has accomplished much in establishing a fine reputation. Through the years, precision marching and pep activities have contributed greatly to the spirit of Mount Vernon. The Majors can be truly proud of these girls who, in the August heat, practiced routines for the coming football season. However, their activities do not stop when the last football jersey is put away! Drill Teamers promote spirit by wearing their colorful uniforms during basketball season. In the spring these hard¬ working girls represented Mount Vernon High School in the George Washington Birthday Celebration and the Apple Blossom Festival Parade in Winchester, Virginia. The Drill Team has become traditional at Mount Vernon, and like all traditions, it gains prestige as a result of age and contributions it makes. Something of the school would be missing without the Drill Team. SITTING: Sizanne Hinson, treasurer; and Sherry Jackson, secretary. STAND¬ ING: Debbie Sampson, Carol Brown, Carolyn Romney, Linda Metcalfe, Kathy Bradshaw, and Sue Elkins, squad leaders; Carol Jones, sergeant-at-arms; and Sue Sirbaugh, historian.

We also provided spirit and color to the Fort Belvoir, George Wash¬ ington’s Birthday, and Winchest¬ er’s Apple Blossom parades. The Annual Spring Band Concert gave us another opportunity to enter¬ tain the public. By holding bake sales, the ma¬ jorettes were able to purchase new summer uniforms which consisted of a maroon skirt and vest, white long sleeve blouse, and white beret. It has been our aim this year to provide added color, originality, and spirit for the stu¬ dent body. Barbara Gmaz and Ingrid Jones A first at Mount Vernon—“Fire Batons” were used at half-time ceremony for the George Wash¬ ington and Mount Vernon tilt. 172 Color Guard Diane Seablom Janice Cleveland, Captain Karen Lyons The Mount Vernon High School Color Guard marched for the third time this year. Under the direction of Mr. Walter McGuire and Mr. Walter Hall, the squad marched at the football games and parades with the marching band. Remington rifles were loaned to the group by the Gunston Hall Post of the Foreign Wars. This year, as in the past, the girls have tried to establish a patriotic feeling in their fellow students. Cleaning rifles and folding flags is another of many duties of Color Guard members. 173 Future Homemakers of America Marie Adams, president; Carol VanDuker, vice president; Jean Miles, secretary; and Nancy Smith, treasurer.

The Future Secretaries of America endeavored to attain two principal goals. Our main objective was to produce girls fully prepared to assume all the duties and responsibilities which will be placed upon them as secretaries. For the benefit of our members, we had several guest speakers from area schools, such as the Washington School for Sec¬ retaries and the American Business School. Our second objective was to be of service in whatever capacity possible. Our projects included candy wreaths for the children’s day-care center, financial aid for the Silver Anniversary Alumni Committee, and the annual Beauty Contest. As a result of a newly-revised constitution and a well-planned program, the FSA completed a suc¬ cessful year, having attained both of our goals.

Services were rendered to faculty members such as assisting with special assignments, entertaining with teas, and a reception. American Education week was observed with special programs and an “Apple for the Teacher.” We also recognized each faculty member and the cafeteria personnel with a special birthday card, held a special radio broadcast in April which was Career Month, and cooperated with the FHA and FSA in sponsoring the Annual Beauty Contest. A visit to FTA National Education Association head¬ quarters was made at which time club members met with FTA personnel. We visited the offices and had lunch in the NEA cafeteria. FTA goals are to assist individual members to explore, hear lectures, view films, and make deci¬ sions in the teaching profession. 1965 OFFICERS: Stephanie Goldberg, secretary; Roberta Mills, vice president; and Susan Vinay, treasurer.

The first semester was highlighted by the annual Christmas sale drive. Thus, the meetings were spent in preparation of such things as stained glass windows, sketches, bookmarks and any other items that could be created and sold for profit. The second semester the club dealt with ceramics, making ceramic jewelry and oc¬ casionally under the supervision of Mrs. Kof- ler, learning to use the potter’s wheel.
