ADMINISTRATION AND FACULTY
STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS AND ACTIVITIES
2. Grade Groupings
When the Annual Staff of 1949-50 was organized at the beginning of the
session, its members became immediately aware of a greater significance of
the annual for this particular year-a year unusual in the history of Stephens
City High School. First, this year's Senior Class is the initial class to be
graduated under the new twelve-year educational system, and second, this
year marks the final session of the existence of Stephens City High School
as an institution of secondary education. The Staff and Senior Class felt that,
in view of these facts, this edition of the annual should be a chronicle or
history in brief of the years during the life of the high school which has
meant so much to so many people, from the time of its origin in 1916 up to
and including the current session.
It is the sincere hope of the Staff members that, as students of the past
and present turns the pages of this book, they will feel that they have been
a part of the history of our school and that they will relive many pleasant
memories and associations at Stephens City High School.
Esmrm Wrnnmivrs, Editor-in-Chief
DR. P. B. STICKLEY
For a number of years the size of the proposed Stephens City High
School was debated pro and con. One faction fought valiantly for an eight-
roorn buildingg a second faction maintained that a four-room building would
be adequate. The debates concerning this matter were held almost nightly
in Lemley Brothers' Tailoring Shop. The leaders of those in favor of the
larger building were Dr. P. B. Stickley, Mr. R. A. Lemley, Mr. Atwell Guard,
Mr. Hawkins Orndorlf, and Mr. William Painter.
Of this farsighted number only Dr. P1 B. Stickley is now living and to
him, as a representative of the group who fought to provide ample educa-
tional facilities for the youth of this community, we dedicate this the final
edition of the Stephens City High School Annual.
THE SENIOR CLASS or 1950
Original Plant and its Expansion over the years
Pictured above is the original unit of the Stephens City High School
plant. Prior to the construction of this building, in 1916, high school classes
were held in a building which was razed to make way for the present Metho-
dist Church, in a building now occupied by Herrell's Antique Shop, and above
E. L. Lemley's Store. In 1927 the Agricultural and Home Economics unit
was added to the plant. In 1928 a unit intended as an elementary school,
but later used by the high school, was added. ln 1944 the final unit, the
cafeteria-cannery, was constructed.
On June 6, 1936, the original building was partially destroyed by tire of
unknown origin, but was rebuilt during the summer and ready for occupancy
the following September.
In 1930 and '37 the high school population of Frederick County was re-
districted and Stephens City High School became and remained the largest
consolidated high school in the county. Students from nearly all parts of
the county were transported by bus to and from school. At present, four
bus runs are required in the transportation of students.
In 1945 a commercial course was added to the general and academic
courses, thus permitting the students a wider choice of credits toward gradu-
Serving as principals of Stephens City High School from the session

1913-14, Milton Hollingsworth, 1914-15 through 1917-18, A. M. Smith, during
whose term of office, in 1915-16, the present plant was first usedg 1918-19
through 1920-21, J. R. Ware, 1921-22, Love Chrismang 1922-23 and 1923-24,
A. M. Smith returned, 1924-25, Fendall Bowie, 1925-26 through 1929-30,

1948-49 and 1949-50, P. D. Beable.
The fall session of 1950 will see the abandonment of the present plant
tor use as a high school when the million-dollar James Wood High School
'vill open its doors to the approximately seven hundred high school students
of Frederick County.

THE STEPHENS CITY SCHOOL CAFETERIA
Construction was begun on the cafeteria in May 1944 and it was first
used by the students of Stephens City High School the following session.
It was built and equipped largely through the efforts of the students, patrons,
and teachers of the school and the citizens of Frederick County. It has a
seating capacity of about 100 and, by staggering lunch periods, easily accom-
modates the student body. During the first year of its existence Mrs. C. C.
Rhodes acted as lunchroom manager in addition to filling the duties of Home
Economics instructor, but, since then, a lunchroom manager has been em-
ployed in the cafeteria. For the past two years Mrs. Arbutus Carper has
occupied the position with Mrs. Zella Hausenfluck assisting. Many of the
students of Stephens City School help in the lunchroom during their study
THE FREDERICK COUNTY COMMUNITY CANNERY
In February 1944 a group of civic-minded citizens petitioned the Fred-
erick County Board of Supervisors to aid them financially in the construc-
tion of a cannery-cafeteria building. Although turned down by the Board,
the group did not give up, but held a mass meeting to secure pledges of iinan-
cial aid from the citizens of the county and organized a building committee.
Through the combined efforts of the people of Frederick County it was pos-
sible to begin construction upon the cannery, which, since its completion, has
saved the homemakers of the county time, labor and personal health, and
enabled them to supply their families with better canned foods. Thousands
of cans of fruits and vegetables are preserved in season each year at the can-
nery. Although the building was financed by the citizens of Frederick Coun-
ty, the modern equipment was donated by the Federal Government.
The cannery operates under the supervision of Mr. James C. Gordon,
assisted by Miss Mary Rudasill, Mrs. Bertha Stickley occupies the position
as instructor and Mr. Sam Cook acts as engineer.

The Alumni Association of Stephens City High School was organized
in the fall of 1938 at a called banquet at Tokes' Inn under the direction
of Mrs. Elsie Hovermale. Since that time the Association has grown by
leaps and bounds and at present numbers approximately 95 members. The
organization has engaged in many activities both of a social nature and in
connection with creating many improvements in the school and community.
During the period of its existence it has expended a minimum of one hun-
dred dollars per year for some worthwhile and greatly needed improve-
ments in the school facilities, among which have been the remodeling of
the washrooms, visual aid apparatus, blackout curtains, playgroundg and
athletic equipment and an electric drinking fountain for the high school
building. 'I'he Association has sponsored many enjoyable social activities
including the annual banquet in the spring and Christmas parties and
picnics in season.
Upon being graduated from Sftephens City High School a student,
if he pays his dues, becomes a member of the Alumni Association. The
year 1913 was the first year in which anyone was graduated from a school
at Stephens City and that year produced two graduates-Miss Browne
Samsell and Mr. Clearence Tevault. Except for the sessions ending in
1914 and 1916, there has been a graduating class every year at Stephens
City even though some of them have been quite small. The Class of '42
was the largest graduating class in the history of the school and numbered
sixty-one members. A totaled roll call follows of the number of graduates
per year including the current term:

The FHA is a National organization of pupils studying homemaking in
junior and senior high schools of the United States and territories. The pur-
poses of the organization are to develop social qualities and promote better
home life for its members and their families.
A Home Economics class was first organized at Stephens City in the year
1925 under the direction of Mrs. C. C. Rhodes who devoted 20 years of untir-
ing effort to the building of the Home Economics Department and to the wel-
fare of the entire system. Due to lack of space at the Stephens City
School, classes were held in the basement of the bank building for 3 years.
The cottage at the high school was first used in the fall of 1928 and has been
an important part of the school system since that time.
Mrs. Rhodes continued as instructor at Stephens City through the ses-
sion 1944-45 and saw the department grow under her direction from a small
group of 16 girls to a club enrollment of 79. A number of instructors have
succeeded Mrs. Rhodes including Mrs. Crocker in 1945-46, Mrs. Rinker from
1946 through 1948, Mrs. Devers in 1948-49, and Miss Mary Rudasill in the

up a program of work planned by the month. Among their many projects
for this year have been the initiation of new members, operation of snack
bar to raise money, sending sewing equipment to German students, serving
a luncheon to the Lions' Club and the preparation of exhibits for the county
fair at which the Stephens City High School girls have always made
an excellent showing.

The Future Farmers of America is a national organization that reaches
from the state of Washington to Puerto Rico and from Maine to Hawaii.
The present F. F. A. was first organized as the Future Farmers of Virginia,
which was so successful under the direction of Mr. Henry C. Groseclose at
V. P. I., that it was made a national organization in 1928 and was called the
Future Farmers of America.
The F. F. A. Chapter of Stephens City was organized in 1926 by Mr.
Grover Kinzy and chartered in 1930. There were fifteen members and
George Wright was elected the first president. The history of the Stephens
City Chapter has been outstanding in winning many honors, among which
were placing second in the state chapter contest in 1940 and being chosen as
one of the four best chapters in the United States in 1940. Chapter advisors
in the past have been Mr. Grover Kinzy, Mr. J. A. McKenny, Mr. R. A. Wall,
Mr. Fred A. Dobbins and Mr. J. W. Henderson.

Girls' Softball Squad
Girls' athletic activities have been somewhat neglected over the years,
but, in spite of this, the girls have made an excellent showing in those con-
tests in which they have participated.
In February 1939 the Girls' Athletic Association was organized and two
teams were formed for play during the school day. In 1944, the girls entered
the Clarke-Frederick County Softball League and a loop of contests was
scheduled annually each fall which included games involving teams repre-
senting Berryville, Boyce, Gainesborcv, Gore, Stephens City and Stonewall,
with Middletown entering in 1949 and Gore and Boyce dropping out.
In the spring of 1946 Stephens City High School Team won the League
Championship with only one game lost, and managed to get one leg on the
trophy presented by the Northern Virginia Daily. In the four following sea-
sons, the Stephens City Nine placed second after having it out with Gaines-
boro with whom Stephens City always seemed doomed to tie for first place.
Past scores of games with Gainesboro have been: in the fall of 1946, Gaines-
boro-14, Stephens City-115 in the fall of 1947, Gainesboro-17, Stephens
City-16g in 1948, Gainesboro-145 Stephens City-6. The trophy, after the

The coming of organized football as an activity at Stephens City High
School was long postponed due largely to the fact that the student body has
been too small to support it, at least in its eleven-man form. However,
in the spring of 1945 under the direction and coaching of Mr. Aylor and Mr.
Gordon, a six-man team was organized, and was entered in the District
L League. In 1946 Mr. Melton Wright joined the faculty and aided Mr. Aylor
and Mr. Gordon in the job of coaching the team. The first two years found
the team struggling to make a showing in the league and at the end of the
first two seasons Stephens City was near the bottom of the League. In 1947
with Mr. Chester Wedell as coach, the Stephens City High School team won
the District L Championship and Stephens City was well on its way in be-
coming a worthy competitor on the football field. In September 19481, Mr.
Lester Singhass came to Stephens 'City High School' as the first full-time
physical education instructor and coach and started off the season with
what amounted to a completely new team as a result of the graduation of the
members of the former championship squad. Since it takes time to develop
a seasoned team, 1948 was not a too successful season. During the latter part
of the 1949 season, however, the team showed much improvement and placed
fourth in the District L League.
The schedule for the current season follows with accompanying scores'

For a number of years in the earlier history of the school, there were
no inter-scholastic contests at Stephens City High School.
In 1939, a baseball team was organized and entered in the Clarke-Fred-
erick County League. The first three seasons of organized inter-scholastic
play were very successful as the team placed second in the League all three
years. The fourth year saw the Stephens City nine do even better by win-
ning the League championship to get one leg on the trophy which had to be
won two years in succession before it could be permanently retained by any
team. In 1944 the Stephens City Team lost its chance at permanent posses-
sion of the trophy when the Middletown team nosed them out in a hard-
fought game for the championship. This put Stephens City second place in
the League. 1946 saw Stephens City next to the bottom in the League, but
in '47 the Chiefs were on top again and, at the close of the season were
entitled to play in a contest with the All-Stars, a team composed of outstand-
ing players selected from the League contestants. 'The '48 and '49 seasons
were not too successful as the team placed fourth in '48 and on the bottom
in '49, Prospects for this spring are good since the larger proportion of the
old members of the squad are back and should bring the Stephens City High
School rating up near the top again.

The Stephens City High School Boxing Team was organized in the ses-
sion of 1939-40 under the direction of Mr. R. A. Wall and Mr. R. E. Aylor.
Although this was the school's first venture into this field of sporti, it did
rather well, winning the greater number of bouts. Boxing was abandoned
for several years until 1948 Mr. Chester Wedell took over the physical edu-
cation program and organized a boxing team which tied with Middletown at
an exhibition in which other schools in the Clarke-Frederick League were
represented. The session of 1949 put an end to boxing in Stephens City
High School when the State Department of Education ruled that there would
be no more boxing in the high schools of Virginia.

at Bridgewater College. Again in 1949, Stephens C'ity's team made an ex--
cellent showing at the District L meet and also at the Regional Contest held,
as before, at Bridgewater College.

The session of 1940-41 was the first year in the history of the school that the
students of Stephens City High School enjoyed a school library. That year
also saw the employment of a full-time librarian, Mrs. Roy Wisecarver, who
organized the first Library Club. Among the activities of the Library Club
down through the years have been raising money to purchase books and other
equipment, working to make the library a more attractive room, cataloguing
and arranging books, mending torn books and assisting the librarian in check-
ing books coming into and going out of the library.
Librarians who have served at Stephens City High School have been Mrs.
Roy Wisecarver, from 1940 through 19443 Mrs. M. N. Konklin in 1944-455
Mrs. G. K. Barker in 1945-463 Mr. Melton Wright in 1946-473 Miss Hettie

Organized cheerleading at Stephens City High School has developed
along with football. It was begun in earnest during the 1946-47 session and
has improved greatly to the present time. The cheerleaders have stuck to
their job of trying to build up school spirit among the members of the student
body and encouraging the students to back their teams.

classes in the high school. The next session, Mr. Lester Singhass became the
first full-time physical education director, and retained the position for the

the high school their first opportunity to take shorthand and typing which
were instructed by Miss Dorothy Poe. The following year Mr. Donald Pier-
rault took over the Commercial Department and bookkeeping was added
lo the curriculum. Mr. Perrault in 1948 organized the Commercial Club,
the membership of which included all those students taking the commercial
courses and this group assumed the responsibility for raising money to sup-
ply the Department with needed equipment. The Commercial Club has

The Monogram Club has been in existence at Stephens City High School
for a number of years. It is an organization made up of high school students,
boys and girls, who have met a minimum of requirements as a member of at
least one of the athletic teams, such as softball, football or baseball, or stu-
dents who have served as cheerleaders. Last year, one of the major activi-
ties of the Monogram Club was the drafting and adoption of a Constitution.

Senior Class History
We began our high school careers in September 1946. There was a suffi-
cient number of us to be divided into two homerooms-one sponsored by Miss
Roberts with Harold Whetzel as president and the other sponsored by Miss
Rudolph with Patsy Barton as president.
Our Sophomore year found us all combined in one home-room group with
Miss Rudolph as our sponsor. We elected Charles Anderson president and
began planning for a busy year. Due to the introduction of a twelve-year sys-
tem of education in the school, there was no Junior Class this year, and the
duties of a Junior class fell to us as Sophomores. We raised money for and
held the Junior-Senior Prom at the George Washington Hotel and decorated
the churches of Stephens City for the Baccalaureate Sermon and Commence-
Our Junior year was made eventful by the fact that we got our rings which
we had been looking forward to for a long time. We also began to think about
and plan for our Senior year. We elected Randolph Seal as president and Miss
Rudolph continued as our sponsor.
This year our goal is attained and we are Seniors. Our minds are full of
many activities pertaining to graduation-the annual, our prom, the Senior trip
and, last but not least, the graduation program when we are handed our di-
plomas in one of the really big moments of a lifetime.
We elected Dean Baughman president of our Senior Class and once more
we were sponsored by Miss Rudolph.
HAROLD WHE'rzmL, Histofrian
Senior Cla'ss Poem
THE RIVER OF LIFE
Life, to me, is like a river.
It's small ever flowing tributaries
Making a mighty stream.
Once this stream has started
It is much like the life of man,
Making its own course
Through the muddy way of life.
Twelve years ago, even before,
These same tributaries started
Thus we set our course!
Now we are wending our way
Toward the mighty river of life.
The first large tributary to help us,
Was the starting of our formal education.
This flow of knowledge was as pure
And refreshing as the mountain stream.
The next important tributary came with
The entering of high school.
This was the largest benefit
To the fiow of education.
Some of us may branch to higher learning,
And some may find other streams
To fulfill the needs and desires,
As we journey down the river of life.
But, regardless of the streams we choose,
We have begun our lives with a
Sound and full beginning.
May we continue to make our lives
Full and ever growing,
Until the river of life itself,
Ceases to flow.

the feet of frightened freshmen on the correct path was the first important
step. From that time, she has understood our problems and patiently helped
to correct our mistakes. Now that we are seniors, our gratitude is too deep
to express, but a pleasant memory of our kind, vivacious sponsor will always
be treasured in our hearts.

An eighth grade was added to the curriculum of Stephens City High
School in the 1945-46 session, making a 7-5 school plan. The eighth grade is
considered a part of the high school, even though no credits for graduation
are offered by the eighth grade courses which are largely remedial and some-
what exploratory in nature. The group, this year, consists of 67 members,
who have come to Stephens City High School from numerous elementary
schools in the county.
