Walter Denny, yearbook advisor, and the members of the graduating class of '56. Only through all these corn- bined efforts was our work made more enjoyable. And now we turn over, for your approval, THE ISLANDER for 1956, We hope it will serve as a re- minder to you of your pleasant days here at Stevensville High School, THE STAFF Photography Advertising Editor Editor Barbara Mench f1ay0utj Joan Nash Business Manager Pat Lynch Advertising Ruth Haddaway fmanagerj Rosalie Usilton ?.r.. 1--'X Us V fvw Qx X E.. ,, M 3,5 Your life in high school is like crossing a breeze- way, There will be sunny days and rainy days, Some will be stormy and some snowy, But when you combine all the bad and the good days you've seen since you first set foot on the "breezeway of life," many years ago, and record and save the results, you will note when you read them in the future that they almost entirely seem pleasant. Here in this yearbook we are recording the many pleasant memories of this year, as we, the graduating class of '56, take our last few steps across this short breezeway of life, S lJl:I Amo Nw Nmuaies lx +11 .: '-I ? 6' l Qvczuizv eoscnnf' gawk 'l'hc.Siork Cluh Stork f W FACULTY N MESSAGE TO THE GRADUATING CLASS OF 1956 As you traverse the highway of life, there will be many, road signs to guide your progress, You would be unusual if you did not fail to read and heed some of these guide posts, Therefore, there are two to which I would like to direct your attention, Sign number One: RIGHTS EQUAL RESPONSIBILITIES In our democratic society we are blessed with the most liberal endowment of human rights known to man, However, we must be aware that for every right given to us there is an accompanying responsibility to safeguard this right and use it wisely, In a way of life where men are not told what to do, they must decide what needs to be done and how to do it, Then they must work to see that their decision is put into effect, Sign number two: RESPECT EACH INDIVIDUAL No man exists who can say that he is truly superior to another man, People must be judged for what they are, not what you might want them to be, Respect for each individual --his opinions, his beliefs, his way of life--is absolutely necessary, if you are to be happy in this world, You need not always agree with your neighbor, your friends or your enemies, but you are obligated to give them the freedom to hold their viewpoints and to argue for them, If you will look for these signs and take heed when you see them, I feel that you will make a worthy contribution to your community, your country, and the world in general, I am sure that these signs will guide you th.rough a full and happy life, Good Luck! r. fm ,w-,,. ff I - I 3 if V f , 7 Q 1 8 1 MRS.

Everyone 's friend, that's Jane. Although she seems quiet on the surface, she has a wonderful sense of humor and a fine personality. Jane is really a lover of baseball. During a World Series, you can usually find Jane and Sis comparing notes about the game coming up or the game just played. As for Jane's vocation after graduation she is undecided. But with her quiet and easy manner, we are sure she can achieve any goal she desires. Favorite saying: l don't know! Parting words: I have enjoyed being a part of S. H, S, Jil- funn-J Har-.o-1 IDA JEAN AARON "Ida Jean" Course: Commercial Sandy brown hair--Blue eyes--5'5" Volleyball l, 2g Glee Club 1, 23 Safety Patrol 4g Class Secretary lg Class Vice President 2. If you look down the hall at S. H, S. and see a pony tail bouncing along, you can always bet it belongs to Ida Jean, who's rushing to help Mr. Romanition com- plete some more work. The commercial field is strictly Ida Jean's line. She is a thrifty and accurate typist. Her speed of seventy words a minute sent her to Salisbury at the end of her junior year to compete in the State Typing Contest. Ida Jean is the sort of gal who can talk her way into or out of any situation that may arise. She really enjoys the good side of life. Her carefree manner and amusing tricks have kept our class laughing in the past six years. Ida Jean plans to spend her future doing stenographic work. With her ability and personality to depend on, we are certain she will succeed. Favorite saying: Hope m'die Parting words: Stick to it, kids, you'll never regret it. RICHARD EDWARD AVERY "Dickie" Course: Commercial Brown hair--Blue eyes--5'l0" Soccer 3, 4g Basketball 2, 3, 4, Baseball 3, 4g Student Council Representative lg Vice President 4. When Dickie was asked what his favorite subject is, he said, without thinking twice, that it could be more than one subject, girls! When he realized he had not given the expected answer, he added that bookkeeping is his favorite school subject. Although he has participated in every sport offered, he says basketball is his favorite, He has played on the team since his tenth grade. Even though his skill on the basketball court has helped a great deal to make him popular, his personality has contributed as much. Dickie thinks Uncle Sam will be wanting him after graduation. Whatever he may do, we wish him all the luck possible. Favorite saying: You ain't too bright Parting words: Could be worse. .,., A ,, .,..,a,-ff-, f ' 'lit-Ara 515.4-Ile, Balm BERTIE ELIZABETH BENTON "Bertie" Brown hair--Brown eyes--5'6" Fieldball 1, 2g Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4, Softball 1, 2, 3,45 Safety Patrol 3, 4, Glee Club 2. When you're walking down the hall and see an attractive dark-haired girl standing by the office, that's Bertie, serving her duty on the Safety Patrol. On Friday evenings during the winter months you can usually figure on Bertie's being with the basket- ball team playing her position as a guard. This is her favorite SPOFI, and she plays it well. Bertie chose the commercial course. Ever since the ninth grade she has followed it, taking typing, shorthand, and bookkeeping. Of these, shorthand is her favorite. Her future occupation, needless to say, will be that of a stenographer. Favorite saying: Oh, stop it! Parting words: Don't ever quit school. r fmfcif VIRGIE LEE CLOUGH "Birgie" Course: General Dark brown hair--Hazel eyes--5'8" Fieldball lg Volleyball l,4g Glee Club lg Reporter for Little Journal 3. Virgie is the girl with the vivid imagination. She tries to keep good grades, although she would rather spend her time in telling jokes than in studying. Virgie is very well liked by her classmates. She especially likes cooking and has been a great help to her home economics class. After graduation she plans to be a housewife. We wish you happiness and success, Virgie. Favorite saying: Stop it, already! Parting words: Enjoy yourselfg it's later than you think!

When he wears his brown-rimmed glasses he really resembles one. Rodney is sh0rt irl comparison to the other boys in our class, and this fact has won him such aliases as "Teddy Bear" and "Shortie. The most noticeable thing about Rodney is that he never goes to class with a pencil or paper. "Any- body got an extra pencil?" he will repeat in five classes a day. For the past two years, in his capacity as barber shop assistant, Rodney has been almost shaving people bald-headed - -giving some mighty close crew-cuts, at least. We are quite sure he will succeed in his future career. Favorite saying: I don't know! Parting words: Stick with your guns. 2? GEORGE FRANK COUNCIL nFrank" Course: General Brown hair--Blue eyes--6'2" Soccer 1, 2, 3, 4g Baseball 1, 2, 3, 4. Frank is the fellow who has a great tendency to rip his trousers. lf he is missing from class it may be that he is working on some extracurricular activity, but there is a good chance he 's at home changing his dungarees. Frank is a quiet boy in class and one who is always willing to abide by the decision of the majority. His ability to respect authority will be a great help to him in future years. From the way he talks, serving in the Army will be his occupation. Good luck, Private Council! Favorite saying: Never touch the stuff.

Along with fulfilling her many responsibilities, Bev enjoys relaxing and having a good time. Her love for sports is tremendous and her skill in basketball, fieldball, and softball has won us many victories. We are sure she will prosper in the field of nursing.

If there's a game of any kind going on, you can bet that Sis is somewhere near. She's a fiend for sports, as a glance at her record of activities lets you know. Along with being a good athlete, she 's a good student and a fine, sincere, straight-forward person. She 's one of our all-around gals. Making a long-distance phone call next year, you may hear an operator say "Number, please" in that full rich voice that belongs to Sis. Favorite saying: No kidding!

Q MICKEY GORDON GERNERT "Mickey" Course: General Black hair--Hazel eyes--5'l0" Safety Patrol 3, 4, Soccer 3,43 Basketball 4, Baseball 1, 2, 3, 4. If there's anything that has to be done, Mickey is willing to help--that is, if he can thereby get out of a class. Speaking seriously, Mickey is remarkablv helpful, whether it's in decorating for a dance or in liming a field for a game. He claims his favorite subject is physical education Actually that is almost the only class he takes part in. Most other class periods he spends reading books. Mickey has one outstanding talent--teasing. As for his occupation after graduation, he hasn't decided definitely, but we feel sure he will accomplish worth- while things. Farorite saying: Who-o-oo??? Parting words: I'll see you! ! VX A 5, 7-I JOHN LAWRENCE HAMMETT "Larry" Course: General Blonde Hair--Brown eyes--6' Soccer 3, 4. "Lover" Larry is the Romeo of the senior class. He is usually seen pursuing for, should we say, being pursued byj his favorite pastime, GIRLS. Very seldom is he seen with the same girl two times in succession. Although his job keeps him from being on the team, he developed a love for basketball this year. Larry is very neat in appearance and is one of the best-dressed boys in our class. Best of luck to an ardent bachelor.

Class work, for the active Joni, is just another choreg she does well in her studies. Cooking and sewing take up her free time. An undecided future lies ahead of her now, but we are sure Joni will be happy with whatever the future brings. Favorite saying: All right now! Parting words: lt's up to the Juniors now. .barn ful, SAMUEL WHITE LOWERY, JR. "Muscles" Brown hair--Blue eyes--6'3" Basketball 3. "How's the weather up there, Muscles?" is a facetious question you can hear anyone ask Sam. He's tall all right, and every inch a really good guy. He's one of the tallest in our senior class. Muscles likes athletics, as well as hunting, fishing and carpentering with his father. Nor too keen on girls, he sticks with. his buddies Tommy and Frank. Favorite saying: No indeedy no.

Sylvia has no plans at present as to what she will do after graduation, but we know she will work hard in whatever field she enters. We wish you good luck in the future, Sylvie.

Outstanding in class and school activities, Pat has served as treasurer of our class for four years. It was under- standable that, with her musical ability, she should be in glee club three years and this year be chosen to represent Stevensville High School in the State Chorus that sang in Baltimore for the Maryland State Teachers' Convention. She carries a full schedule as business manager of the yearbook and chairman of the Senior write-ups, Pat has an ingenious way of getting things off her chest without making enemies. We believe she will lead a successful and happy life. Favorite saying: Anybody got anything to eat?

Tommy, a likable, dark-haired gent, is really looking forward to graduating this year. A habitual tease, Tommy spends a great deal of time at this pastime. Although he has been heard saying he doesn't especially like school, Tommy is active in sports and class activities. Tommy has been cheered many times in baseball and soccer games, in which he is an en- thusiastic participant. When a trip for any project that takes us out of the classroom, is being planned, Tommy at once is in- terested. He is a willing worker and has often been seen getting ice or decorations for a dance. Tornmy's future is undecided, but we are sure he will make a success of whatever vocation he may choose. Favorite saying: Who? Parting words: So long.

With that good sense of humor, she is forever producing funny stuff to keep us in stitches. She has a great in- terest in typing and clerical work and has been an assistant in the principal's office for two years. Of course this interest doesn't prevent Joni from finding time to cut up with Mr. Romanition! After graduating, she plans to take up clerical work. Good luck, Joni. Stay as sweet as you are.

She is busy this year, taking sub- scriptions for the yearbook and ordering the seniors' announcements, name, and thank-you cards. Paula puts enthusiasm into everything she does, whether it be dancing, classwork or managing some class project. To her, responsibility is a privilege, not a burden. She may always be heard cheering loudly at pep rallies and games. When Paula graduates and joins the service, her cheery smile and enthusiastic friendliness will be missed by many at S, H, S, Favorite saying: Oh, my! 1 3'1uk.unQn, 3.n.k.le..

In her spare time, when her mood is not literary, she is usually seen dancing. Her outstanding feature is her long fingernails. We often wonder how she manages not to break them. Phyl's favorite sport is volleyball, for which she goes "all out. " Upon graduation she plans to become a housewife. We feel she will make a success of her life.

If you should walk in on a senior class meeting, you would find our class president, Billy, conducting it in an able manner. Good-natured Billy laughs and jokes readily, but when it is time to be serious, he becomes so. One of the best-liked boys in the class, and chosen by the class as the boy most likely to succeed, he is reliable and may always be depended upon to help decorate for school dances and other affairs. This year he is busy selling advertising space for the yearbook, rushing to Student Council meetings or to his post as a safety patrolman, or hurrying out to the athletic field to practice.

"Tall, good-looking, and friendly" is the best way to describe Frank. With his versatile ways, he can adjust to any situation. Laughing and blushing are Crane's main characteristics. He loves to tease, but invariably blushes more than the person he is teasing. Frank was chosen as the most popular boy in Stevensville High School for 1955-56. He is a class favorite as well as a favorite throughout the school. In Frank's sophomore year he was chosen to represent our class in the May Court, and in our senior year he was chosen as the best dancer of the class.
