DEUTIIATIU Mr. Peter Dunlop Pelham This year marked the beginning of a new admin- istration at Mount Vernon. ln the fall of l962 Mr. Peter Dunlap Pelham came to fill the office of president. Mr. Pelham has had a sound background to pre- pare him for his present work. When he had com- pleted four years at the Kent School, he attended Williams College in Massachusetts. After his graduation from college he went on to earn his Master's Degree at Harvard University. l-le has had experience as an assistant to the dean of admissions at Williams College. Presently he is finishing his work for the Doctor's Degree at the University of Virginia. There are many problems which confront a new president during his first year at a school, and it is difficult to work out the solutions to the satisfac- tion of both the faculty and the students. Yet, despite these difficulties and responsibilities, Mr. Pelham always finds time to listen to the requests and problems of the girls. Who could forget his cheerful uhello", his friendly advice, the parties he gave for us, and his support of, and participa- tion in, the many school activities? The Pelham family, too, has become a part of school life. This includes Mrs. Pelham, Melissa, and Peter, lr. By opening their home to the school, they have made the students feel more strongly than ever that Mount Vernon is not only a place of learning but also their home. Already his diplomacy in handling the girls has won him their complete respect and admiration. l-lis presence has infused fresh vigor into the life and outlook of the school, and he has brought a promise of new ideas to be added to our many old traditions. We feel truly fortunate to have Mr. Pelham as our president and we take pride in dedicating this yearbook to him in honor of his first year at Mount Vernon. Message to the Class M1953 Nearly a century has passed since Mrs. Somers first accepted pupils into her home on F Street. She regarded Mount Vernon as Ha place where young girls should continually be inspired and aided to grow towards a noble, helpful, gracious, Christian womanhood". Simultaneously, she be- lieved that education reguired Han earnest appe- tite for the noblest things in nature, in art, in books, in friendship and in character". Your years at Mount Vernon have been full ones. At times, you have been genuinely enthusiastic in your pursuit of knowledge, upon occasion, you have been discouraged and have doubted the validity of a disciplined approach to learning. You have experienced the joy which comes with perception and understanding, whether it was in your academic work or in your contact with other human beings, you have also felt the isolation and loneliness which can accompany an outward ex- pression of one's convictions. Above all, you have been given the opportunity to learn and to experi- ence the process of learning. ln leaving Mount Vernon, l would have you remember three things: that an understanding of ignorance is a prerequisite for wisdom, that the spirit of individuality is sacred but not separate from the greater spirit of mankind, and that those who possess "an earnest appetite" for life, for work, for learning -- will never lce satisfied with the mediocre. ln reflecting on these three, remember also your olmo mofer's well chosen motto: "She conguers all things who conguers herself". You will always occupy a special place in the lives of the Pelhams, for your graduation marks the end of our Freshman year. We wish you Godspeed and bozme chance. LH-Pbam Mr. Peter D.

This person is Miss Marjorie Frye Gutheim. She has been a mainstay to the life of the school, for into her care fall the million little problems which arise from day to dayp and sometimes the problems are not so small. Then it is that we have felt most the need of that help and guidance which has never failed us. lt was in l945 that she came to Mount Vernon as a history teacher. For four years she continued to work in this capacity and then left us for one year to complete her studies for the Doctor's Degree at Columbia University. She returned in l95O and later became the Director of Studies and assisted Mrs. Lloyd with the administration of the school. This year the load of responsibility has been shifted more heavily than ever onto her, for she now holds the position of Dean of the Seminary. 9 Miss Gutheim, however, does not limit herself to the tasks with which she must cope as Dean. As the head of Cptima she embodies the ideals set forth by this society and inspires the girls to strive both for good citizenship and sound achievement in their academic work. She is also an excellent teacher and has fortunately been able to find time to set aside one period a day to teach the history section of the American Civilization class. Yet busy as she is there is always time for under- standing. Through example and guidance she has taught us the value of self-respect and responsi- bility, and she has given us a foundation of prin- ciples which will last us throughout our lives. lt is difficult to express in words the thanks we feel for the warmth, good humor, and personal friendship that she has given so freely. sf... ...f il ui- hnduuuulrmnnq , :mir ning if if If Tl V!

They take part in the school routine and share it with us. Qn the surtace the work ot a teacher seems obviousp but this is not so. There is much more than just the cut and dried knowledge ot a textbook to be shared between a teacher and her students. Through them the print in books comes alive and takes on a new and task cinating meaning. A touch ot humor, an interest- ing story, a thorough explanation, these are the small personal things they give us to make a sub- ject understandable and enjoyable. The teachers in the English department give the students a better understanding ot literature and also encourage them to develop their own creative ability. Tn History, courses in Ancient, Modern European, English, and American History are ottered. The juggling ot numbers and signs is taught in the Mathematics department, and in Science, an increasingly important subject, the ll student is presented with the stimulating problems ot biology and chemistry. French, Spanish, and Latin are ottered as languages and the students are given a rare opportunity to learn the modern languages with the help ot a language laboratory. Art, too, is an important subject at Mount Vernon, and here we are taught the appreciation ot beauty and the joy ot creation. Each course gives us something ditterent. We acguire knowledge ot music, world attairs, religion, and many other interesting subjects from those who are intimately acquainted with every phase ot the field in which they are teaching. The job ot the teachers, however, does not end in the classroom. As advisors, they are ready with help in any personal problems which may arise. Through warm understanding and tar-reaching knowledge each one has given us another block tor the toundation on which we shall build our future.

STUUE T EUU EIL The Student Council plays a vital part at Mount Vernon. It serves to remind us to obey the rules, and when these are broken, it decides the neces- sary penalty. With the help ot a successtul honor system it insures the smooth running ot the school lite. Several times during the year this organization has meetings which are open to the entire student body. At these meetings any situations which have arisen can be discussed by everyone, and the problems taced in running a school can be fully appreciated by everyone. The Council is open to suggestions at this time and it has been happy to discover that many students are interested and will- ing to give their opinions on how to make the student government even more ettective. This has led to greater cooperation between the students and their school otticers. The Student Council is composed ot the presi- dent ot the Student Body, the presidents and vice- presidents ot every class, the House Council and Day Student presidents, the president ot Qptima, and a secretary-treasurer. Cindy has been an excellent president this year. Through her leader' ship the Council has been able to make a success ot the ditticult tasks which tall to it. Mrs. Lowry, who acts as advisor, has helped throughout the year with her good judgment and ready advice. Qur Student Council is a member ot an inter- school council which is composed ot members trom the governing bodies ot various private schools in the area. The members ot this council meet and compare the ditterent ways in which problems are handled at their respective schools. Early in the year this interschool council spon- sored a mixer tor seniors with the idea ot giving students at ditterent schools an opportunity to meet each other. A new year with a new President has made the need ot a strong Student Council greater than ever. We have been tortunate in having such a council and are proud ot the excellent job it has done. 14 HU SE EUUNEIL The boarders are governed by a council con- sisting of a president, secretary, and proctors who are selected from the boarders themselves. The president, who must be a senior, is elected at the end of her junior year to serve with the advisor, Mrs. Cleland, as the presiding officer over all house meetings. The proctors are elected every term to see that house rules are followed on their particu- lar halls. Their influence on others, their citizen- ship record, and reliability are all factors in choos- ing the girl who is to undertake the responsibilities of a proctor. When necessary, the entire House Council meets to decide upon the action to be taken against those who have broken the House Rules. At other times during the year all the boarders meet with Mrs. Cleland and the president of House Council in house meetings. The purpose of these is to dis- cuss any recent changes in the handbook and also to determine how everyone can better comply with the old rules. Besides being a student governing body, House Council is responsible for organizing the annual Christmas party tor the boarders. Tn the spring it gives an End-of-the4Year party, also. House Council is an important part of the life of the boarders. Through it the girls are able to participate in the government of their school. 1 4 Bock row, left to right: Marian Cehmig, Elizabeth Edwards.

'lWhen we become members of a community or group, we realize that the rules which govern us are needed in order to have the community run smoothly. For this reason We have an Honor Code at Mount Vernon. The Honor Code applies equally to every student and challenges her to be honest with herself and others. Perhaps one ot the most important parts ot the Honor Code is that We A MA. Our Alma Mater glorious, With loving hearts and proud, We crown thee all victorious And sing thy praise aloud.

I am proud that its laws are severe, Though rebellion springs quick to my tongue I am secretly glad ot the strength I revere As protection and guard tor the young. I believe that its teaching rings true On the spirit as Well as the mind, And since in my heart I believe as I do, My duty stands clearly defined. My allegiance I'm bound to avow For my school's reputation is mine, I will never by Word or by action allow Its honor and tame, decline. I7 Time passes buf memories linger. yu Ei?

The school honor society is an organization which is the symbol ot both high academic achievement and outstanding citizenship. lt is the ultimate goal that a student can hope to achieve in her years at Mount Vernon. Cptima is the reward tor hard work, and with a membership in it come many privileges. But the privileges are only secondary. lt is the honor ot being a member that is the most rewarding part ot all. Each student who wears an Optima pin is proud oi her responsi- bility to set an example which will retlect credit on the society and encourage other students to try to achieve a similar position. To be eligible tor membership a girl must be on three out of four academic and citizenship honor rolls, and she must also have the unanimous vote ot the members. For one day the old members have the privilege ot giving a new member a private initiation which consists ot tasks devised at the whim ot these students. A solemn reception then takes place in Post Hall and the day is climaxed by a dinner. The bewildered newcomer thus tinds herselt part ot something about which she has long dreamed. lust before Christmas vacation Qptima gives a party tor the children ot the school employees. Santa Claus is on hand, and carols are sung and presents given out. ln the spring a special trip is planned tor the club, and its members leave their worries in the classrooms and spend an entire day enjoying a picnic. This year Miss Gutheim, Qptimas advisor, and the students were happy to welcome Mr. Pelham into the organization. All the members in the society teel closer to one another and will take into the future with them a common bond ot pride in their achievements. 30 Cligpel Guild, standing, lett to right: Meredith Elledge, Betsy Henderson, Mary Heasty, Louise Kendall, Holly Neville, Susie Eouke, Hope Darrin.

EHAPEL G TLD God's presence is in everything around us and we often call upon Him, yet worship is not easy, and we sometimes need to be shown the way to understand and appreciate Him tully. Here at school it is the organization known as Chapel Guild that makes sure that we are provided with the opportunity to worship. Chapel Guild enters into our lite here in many ways. Every morning it organizes a chapel service in Lloyd Hall. This service is given by a student or a member ot the taculty who talks brietly on any subject which she teels might be ot spiritual inter- est to the school. lt has the advantage ot present- ing the students with constructive and encouraging advice which they can think ot during the day. 3l Chapel Guild also arranges the vesper services that the school boarders attend once a month. This year several services have been held at the Chapel ot the old school on Nebraska Avenue which is now the Navy Chapel. Among its many duties this organization places flowers on the altar tor vesper services. lt also is responsible tor maintaining the Little Chapel on the second tloor ot the Academic Building where students may go tor silent prayer and meditation. This year we have been tortunate to have our own school chaplain, Dr. Sterling Edwards, who has been ot great assistance in making it possible for Chapel Guild to tultill its purpose. EAHUUSEL The literary magazine, Carousel, encourages the students ot Mount Vernon to develop their creative talents, and gives them a place to display their accomplishments. lt has had a very successful year and has made some interesting discoveries. The annual creative writing contest, which was held during the second semester, uncovered the tact that the influence ot lohn Q'Hara and Scott Fitzgerald is noticeable in the tics tional work ot some ot the students. loan Cousins, the editor, and Mrs. Gregg, the advisor, have worked together in publishing the editorials of Carousel. This magazine is not contined to tictional material, tor it also reports on the signiticant news topics ot school lite. The statt ot Carousel contributes articles to the magazine and helps with the editing ot the final product. ai 1 Standing, left fo rfglil: Mrs. Gregg, advisor, Valerie Walton, Libets Harris, Seated row: Monica Croghan, Klara Bonsaclc, Laura Wood, Mary Linda deEutts, Molly Day, Debbe Garrett.

The board ot the yearbook consists ot the editor and tour girls who are heads ot the various divisions ot work. Each member ot the board has a statt which assists her and it is important that each group do its work well in order to achieve continuity. To the pho- tography editor talls the ditticult task ot arranging pictures which will be both striking and pleasing, tor they make up a major part ot the book. All the writing in the book is done by the literary statt. The purpose ot the copy is to complement the pic- tures by giving an ettective explanation tor them. The art editor handles the designing ot the cover and all the lettering and drawing which add so much to the tinal appearance. The tinancial end ot the book is taken care ot by the business statt, which writes letters, collects ads, and manages CuPoLA's budget. All ot the work is supervised by the editor and the taculty advisor. At the end ot the year the statt realizes that the hard work has really been a pleasure, and they know that nothing could be as rewarding as the pride they take in presenting Cuiioiii to the school.

This is the reason that the Cflee Club was formed. lts purpose as an extra-curricular activity is to provide diversion and pleasure tor its members as well as tor those who listen to its concerts. Singing in a group is espe- cially rewarding. There is a certain enthusiasm which vibrates trom the notes ot the soprano to the alto until it catches everyone up in the spirit of the melody. The hymns sung by the Cflee Club have added much to our monthly vesper services at Navy Chapel. At Christmas the girls and Madame Brodenova, their director, presented a lovely ar- rangement ot carols in a special seasonal program. ln the early spring the Glee Club ot both Mount Vernon and Valley Forge Military Academy gave their annual joint concert. This year the boys came here and the whole Mount Vernon student body had the pleasure ot hearing the group sing. ln addition to the special concerts which are given, the club has sung at many school tunctions. Perhaps the high point was Baccalaureate. lt is a solemn service ot special meaning to seniors, as well as to the rest ot the school, and the hymns which the choir sings add much to the beauty ot the service.

LE U-A-HA TU Most rewarding ot all the human experiences is the satistaction derived trom helping others. Lend- afHand is dedicated to this. It is an organization composed ot the entire student body, tor each girl that enters Mount Vernon automatically becomes a member. The active members volunteer tor several types ot work. Some go to the Neighborhood House to care tor the children lett there by working parents, who have no means ot caring tor them at home during the day. Gthers do work in the ottice tor Care, help in hospitals, visit patients at the Home tor lncurables, and pertorm any number ot 35 charitable services. This year, as usual, girls tilled Christmas stockings tor the Salvation Army and gave a Christmas party tor the Neighborhood House children. Their special project has been sending money to a Korean girl who wants to become a social worker but who, without their help, cannot atlord the costs ot education. By adopting this busy schedule and contributing their time, the workers ot Lend-a-Hand have telt a sense ot ace complishment while helping others in less tortu- nate circumstances. LIBRARY EUUNIIIL The library is the academic center of school life. lt is here that the girls come to study in a peaceful and guiet atmosphere, and it is here that they are able to find the resources for reports, speeches, and term papers. Mount Vernon has a beautiful and extensive library which includes a Wide variety of books, files, and periodicals. lt is the duty of the Library Council to keep all of this in order. Under the direction of Miss Thomas and Mrs. Baer the girls learn the techniques involved in organizing and maintaining a library. Each member of the council spends one free period a Week helping the librarians perform their various duties. There is a great daily turn-over of books here, and one of the Council's chief tasks is to see that all incoming books are shelved correctly so that they will be easy to find when reguired by another person. The members of this organization are also responsible for filing the reference cards and for straightening the material which is kept in the vertical files and the periodical section. This year the Library Council is larger than ever before. These girls have special permission to study in the library whenever they wish. They are able to make excellent use of the library them- selves and to help their classmates do the same. As a reward for their work on the Council they are given a dinner in the winter and a picnic in the spring. The thanks of the entire student body goes to the librarians and the girls who keep the library at Mount Vernon a place of which to be proud.

PREP PLAYERS Down through the ages entertainment has been something that has always been enjoyed by man. It comes in many ditterent torms, but one ot the most popular is certainly that type which we call a play. lt is the aim ot Prep Players, the dramatic club at Mount Vernon, to create this kind ot enter- tainment, and thus add to the pleasure ot lite here at school. lt is a club which holds interest tor everyone, tor there are many things to do. People are needed to take care ot make-up, stage design- ing, lighting, and managing. Under the guidance ot Mrs. Hetlin the club has produced many interesting plays. This year Prep 37 Players and the Glee Club again combined talents and gave an outstanding program at Christmas time. Prep Players' contribution to this was two plays, HA Child is Born" and HAH Through the l-louse". ln the spring, on Fathers' Day, the club gave its annual play. This year the school enjoyed an excellent pertormance ot i'Cur l-learts Were Young and Gay". The girls in Prep Players have put in many hours ot diligent work but alter the curtain call there has been time to relax in the satisfaction and glow ot successful accomplishment. SUEIAL A flutter of excitement runs through the dormi- tories as each girl dons her best dress and fixes that stray wisp of hair in exactly the right place. Chatter about promising dates can be heard on every hall, for a dance is being held. All this is made possible by the Social League which plans and sponsors Mount Vernon dances. lt is a com- mittee of girls, made up of a representative from each form, which plans three dances a year. They are responsible for decorating the gym, obtaining a band, preparing the refreshments, advertising the dance, and getting "blind dates". Although this is guite an order, this year Social League has done it splendidly. At the first dance everyone danced to the music LEAD of T. and T. Trebles while the atmosphere was provided by the orange and black decorations traditional to Halloween. 'lSnow Bound", our Christmas dance, captured the holiday spirit with decorations climaxed by two trees and shining trimmings. The Commencement Dance is perhaps the one most looked-forward-to by everyone. Enthusiasm is naturally high and the work of the Social League always helps to make the evening especially successful. When the dancing is over, and the make-up is wiped off, that impeccable coiff is rolled up in curlers on a head full of pleasant memories thanks to Social League.

THE ATHLETTE ASSUETATTU The objective of the Athletic Association is to encourage the different athletic activities of Mount Vernon, to promote friendly competition, a stronger sense of loyalty, and, most of all, good sportsman- ship. The A. A. motto is USportsmanship is our highest goal." Each member of the student body is a member of the Athletic Association. ln order that the A. A. may run smoothly, there is a Board consisting of a President, Yellow and White Team Captains and Co-captains, a Vice-President, Secretary-Treas urer, and a representative from each class. The Board meets twice monthly to discuss the various athletic events that are planned throughout the year. Competition between the two teams continually mounts during the year beginning with the A, A. Picnic. The Picnic includes choosing the new girls to be on either team, participating in various relays, and tugging in the traditional tug of war. Posture Week, in February, is a time when much work and many team points are involved. This year the A. A. sponsored its first project, a Faculty- Student Basketball Game which provided for much excitement. Cn Fathers' Day the A. A. is in charge of the tennis matches and softball game in which the daughters realize they are not guite as good as their fathers. The annual Yellow-White hockey, basketball, and softball games always conclude each respective season. Finally, in May, comes the climax of the athletic year for all, the never forgotten A. A. Banquet. That night all the indi- vidual and team awards are given as each girl relives the great victories and disappointing defeats. Through these activities the Athletic Association hopes to make the athletic program more interest- ing and exciting and to deepen our sense of loyalty to the school. 44 YELLCW CHEERLEADERS-W From! row, fefz' fo right: Barbara lacczhs Captain, lame Brady, Elizabeth Edwards, Susie Levine, Arm Havens.

HUEEEY Mount Vernon's hockey season, although not outstanding, was very satistactory this year. The captains ot the Varsity and lunior Varsity teams were Ann Montgomery and Anne Haggin respec- tively. The tirst game was against lmmaculata, who won 2-l in the varsity game. The next game against Sidwell Friends was probably the most exciting game as Mount Vernon tied Friends, which marks the tirst time in over tive years that Mount Vernon has not been beaten by them. Ann Montgomery and Barbara Huidekoper each made a goal to tie the score 2-2. Mount Vernon remained scoreless in a hard-tought game with Holton-Arms that resulted in a O-0 tie. Hockey Playday was held on Qctober 27th at Sidwell Friends. The tirst game Mount Vernon played was against Georgetown Visitation and Ann Montgomery scored the goal that won this l-O. The last two were played against Madeira and Stone- ridge, each ot whom won O-l, This year Madeira won the area championship. For the tirst time the Washington Field Hockey Association selected the best players ot all the schools to make up the lndependent School Hockey Team. Ann Mont- gomery was selected tor this team. Atter this, Mount Vernon came back in surpris- ing spirits to deteat the St. Agnes team. The varsity score was 5-Og Ann Montgomery made tour ot the goals and Barbara Huidekoper made the tinal one. The Maret game was guite a disappointment as Mount Vernon lost l-2, our goal being made by Candy Sherwood. The Madeira game was just as disappointing. Ann Montgomery scored Mount Vernon's only goal, to lose l-3. ln the Yellow-White hockey game on November l2, each team fought its hardest only to end in a tied score ot l-l. Candy Sherwood scored the White's goal and Ann Montgomery the Yellow goal. gg gy yy 45 BASKETBALL Mount Vernon's varsity baslqetball team, which was captained by Fosty Willis, had a maximum ot eight players.

This class, under the direction of Mrs. Legters, has three sections: beginners, intermedi- ate, and advanced. Much of the class is spent in exercising for the purpose of toning up the body muscles. The idea of modern dance is expres- sion through motion. The girls are encouraged to create their own dances to show their own natural ability. Each sharp contraction or syncopated movement has a significance that interprets some thought or emotion. The members of Dance had an opportunity to show their accomplishments this fall when a se- lected group of girls gave a special performance for the alumnae. Besides giving their own exhibi- tions these girls are also given the opportunity to watch others perform by attending all of the out- standing dance programs which have come to Washington. Waiting in the Wings. 50 ftllll E Un Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at ex- actly 2:20 p.m. those who ride rush out to the waiting cars which take them to Pegasus Stables. After getting their horses the girls break up into beginner, intermediate, and advanced classes. Each girl is instructed in the fundamentals of the forward seat and then progresses steadily from taking cavaletti to jumping regular fences. Occa- sionally the instructors give the classes a treat and take them out on the trails in Rock Creek Park, in which the stable is located. ln the spring a show is held and everyone can test her accomplish- ments. These girls find great enjoyment in riding which is becoming an increasingly popular sport at Mount Vernon.

FHESHMA ELA55 The Freshmen at Mount Vernon this year are especially fortunate. The change of administration in the fall of '62 marked a fresh beginning for the school, so that these eager young students have had the opportunity of entering into the life here at a time when expectations are at a higher pitch than usual. This year the Class of '66 got its start under the leadership of Mary McAllister and the advisorship of Miss Brierley. The office of vice-president was filled by Delle Norman, while Cathy Lewis served as secretary and Cathy Lucas as treasurer. The officers have given excellent leadership to their class and the Freshman group as a whole has fitted into the school routine very well. Among the various activities which are a part of school life is the important matter of the class project. The purpose of this is to raise money which can be used for special activities and for a gift to the school when Tune, l966 arrives. This year the Freshmen had a l'Slave Day" for their project and met with a success that began to fill their little treasury substantially. The Freshman year is not always an easy one. lt is a period of adjustment and the beginning of a challenge. The Class of '66 has successfully met the challenge and is now looking forward to the promises of the future. Standing, left to fight: Virginia Battista, Kathy Qberdorfer.

SUPHUMUHE With a brief glance backward and a longing gaze ahead the Sophomore class settled down for a second year at Mount Vernon, The turbulence and the strangeness of the first year had passed. There were many new faces in the class but there were also the old school friends who had been missed all summer. There is a relaxed atmosphere and a sense of belonging that comes with the return to familiar surroundings. The small Freshman class of last year has mushroomed. lts size has more than doubled and it has been bubbling with enthusiasm and exciting ideas. Betsy Henderson has been class president for the second year. This year lane Withers has been vice-president, Elizabeth Edwards secretary, and Allyson Neece treasurer. ln her first year at Mount Vernon, Mrs. Chapman has guided the class with her invaluable advice. At the first of the year the Sophomores welcomed the Freshmen with a party at Susie Levine's house. lt was a very informal get-to-gether and everyone enjoyed the impromptu acts and usual madcap scenes that attend such female parties. Songs were sung while one girl strummed a guitar, and when the time came to end the party the girls were enjoying themselves so much that they all found it difficult to leave. ln the spring the entire school k...,f"" Bock row, sitting, left to right: Bunny Baxter, Susan Kixmiller, Leslie Heimann, ludy Sterrett, Sally Buckner, Virginia Baird, Donna Simmons, Sally Myers, Rosemary Merriam.

There were many tables that were furnished with things to buy and food to eat. Great ingenuity had been used in the display ot the articles, and the class was rewarded tor their hard work by great tinancial success. For the Sophomores another year has passed and brought them one step closer to their diplomas. ln many ways it is one ot the most enjoyable years in high school. lt has been a short lull between the excitement ot the treshman year and the pressures ot the junior year, when they must begin thinking seriously about college and making important deci- sions concerning it. They have had to work hard, but still harder work is in store tor them. New problems will have to be taced in the coming year but they will have behind them two years of valu- able experience which will help them with their growing responsibilities. lt strong beginnings are any indication ot a successful end then the future achievement ot the Sophomores is assured. The school itselt and all the organizations in it have appreciated the good support ot these girls. While they look ahead, anxious to become luniors, the Freshmen look to them and hope to be able to till their places. ...I Bock row, left fo right: Linda Harley, Mikal Perry, Hope Darrin, Anne Frailey, Nancy Foltz, Betsy Henderson, president, Grace Durrance.

U TUB The luniors entered into their third year at Mount Vernon with enthusiasm and vigor. lt is an important year ot high school and one to which the girls look torward eagerly. At this time the realiza- tion that they are nearing the end begins to crys- tallize. They tind that the work has become harder and that their responsibilities have grown. During this year most ot them begin sending away tor college catalogues and visiting the campuses ot which they hope to someday be a part. It is a year tor Scholastic Aptitude Tests and Achievement Tests. lt is a sobering year, but it also is an enjoy- able one. There are new privileges and there is also the satisfaction ot nearing the top. This year's lunior Class is a bright and talented one. Their otticers have been Tempe Grant, president, Betty Ayers, vice-president, Molly Day, secretary, and Tane Brady, treasurer. Mrs. Saporito has been their advisor. A fashion show was the Tunior class project this year. Tts theme was Winter Weekend and the group ot young models, chosen trom the class, gave a beautitul showing ot the clothes trom Virginia Simmons. Another special event in the lunior year was the lunior-Senior Banquet.

Atter a sumptuous dinner the luniors put on skits in which they im- personated all the Seniors. This was tollowed by the ringing ceremony at which the luniors received their Senior rings amid tlickering candles and tarewell songs. Standing on the threshold ot their Senior Year the luniors take a starry look ahead to all that comes with having reached the top. This summer they will receive the red blazers which they will wear next year as their emblem ot seniority. Behind them lie three years ot solid education and good college preparation. ln reviewing their past S9 they resolve to make use ol what they have learned in all their experience so that they can make l964 a happy and successtul year. lust around the corner lies the glamour and excitement that they have waited and worked tor. During the gradua- tion exercises they picture what the coming year will be like. They see the work in classes, the tun on weekends, the acceptances to college, the diplomas, and their own long white dresses and roses. lt has not come yet, but it is coming soon. There are bright smiles on the taces ot the luniors as they look torward to the tuture. Ewhpffii Recognjfjon is achieved fhfeugh Ioyahly to high ideals cmd noble Sfcmdards.
