Shippensburg High School was proud of hav-
ing six of the most attractive cheerleaders in the
Cumberland Valley. These girls not only led cheers
and spurred our players on to victory but they
also served as representatives of our school when
they accompanied the team to other high schools.
The girls were very active this year. They
were in charge of many pep meetings. One was in
the form of a very novel skit. Five of the basket-
ball players and little johnny Cable were seated
in a wagon on the stage. One cheerleader tried to
move the wagon, then another added her services,
and then another, until finally it took all six cheer-
leaders to make any progress at all. The purpose
of the performance was to show the fans and
team members that in order to win games every-
one must pull together.

Another example of their initiative was the
establishing of cheerleaders for the junior high
school. These young pioneers not only encour-
aged the junior high athletes but they also ac-
quired valuable experience. Their uniforms were
red and white instead of the familiar maroon and
grey. Junior high cheerleaders included Delores
Rhone, Joanna Shank, Joyce Warren, Peggy Karp-
er, Patsy Rhine, and Jane Hockersmith. Mrs. Eve-
lyn Cable was faculty sponsor for both groups.

The Girls' Athletic Association
Under the supervision of Mrs. Evelyn Cable,
the Girls' Athletic Association consisted of senior
high school girls who had participated in the
various girls' intramural sports, such as volleyball,
basketball, and tennis.
Officers for the club were elected in the
spring of 1948 so that work could continue with-
out undue delay in the fall. For this school year,
1948-1949, the officers were as follows: Norma
Hockersmith, presidentg Shirley Mulder, vice-
presidentg Ruth Durff, secretary, and Anne Means,
The club met the first Tuesday evening of
every month in the high school cafeteria. After
the business meetings, refreshments were served.
