To us. the Class of 1953. graduation has always seemed
to be a strange and rather stirring event somewhere off in
the future. Now it is here, and almost over. lndeed, it
really is over, except for the paying of our debt: a debt of
patient hours generously given by faculty and administra-
tion, a debt of talent and genius devoutly dedicatedg a
debt of money liberally spent for our benefit.
In this, our Evergreen, is permanently recorded the
history of our years together at Tower Hill. For us, how-
ever, the printed words will mean not half as much as
those we shall discover between the lines. lf these pages
are closely scanned, they will reveal an ideal, and a way
of life. Tower Hill has given us this ideal and this way of
livingg we must now apply it to our life in a world full
of apprehension and indecision this is our final test.
We dedivate this hook to Mr. Thayer, who
approaches teaching as he does life W with
humor and kindness. Not once has he indi-
cated any dissatisfaction with the joh he has
Chosen as his iife'5 work. A man of infinite
, A V
batience, zi quiet friend. and irl ti-ne hnmani- MJ .

There are just two Seniors who still are here
Who can tell of additions from year to year.
Nancy and Tina are the only two
Who from Kindergarten remained true-blue.
Together they drove all their teachers berserk
As they hurled spitballs and pretended to work.
In first grade they learned a magic new word.
Since then the word Hhomeworki' is all they have heard
The following year they had two things to do.
They learned about redskins and 'rithmetic, too.
This combination was surely convenient.
When they wanted scalps, they were -never too lenient.
So when it came time for a quick computation,
They made a good use of their multiplication.
Cacti and burros were theirs in third grade
And memories of Mexico that never will fade.
In fourth grade they tried to concern them with stars.
"Why rings around Saturn?,' or 'eHow far is Mars?"
By the end of that year they had finished star gazing
And went on to fifth grade with plans for roof-raising
For that was the year that their group would expand.
Artistic Don Homsey then joined their band.
After twelve months came Holly, our future math whiz
Who seemed to find numbers in no way a quiz.
Then .next year came Dave to give Don support.
All :were relieved for on males we were short.
In stamped Miss Green with eyes staring wide.
She plainly was shocked and wanted to hide.
For wheni she once took a good look at the board
And saw all the diagrams, she truly was floored.
In eighth grade they gave us still two more recruits
And the eight of us turned to hi-school pursuits.
,lane joined the girls and Craig tried to, too,
But the boys soon explained that it just wouldn't do.
Ninth grade brought Charlie and his frustrating skill
For proving you wrong against your own will.
The succeeding year we were fourteen in all
As we took our new seats in the old Study Hall.
Marian came first with a grin a mile wide.
Then Gail and Sandy sticking close side by side.
John the Magician land he's one in Trig.l
Came dragging his slide rule. his faithful colleague.
And then therels Bill F. whom we mustnlt forget.
He has hardly a worry and never a fret.
'Twas after New Year's when Annie decided
That sheld like the 'igangw-and she wasnlt misguided.
For the very next summer, all happy and gay,
Marian took off for the land of Norway.
The class got together and planned a surprize
To give her some gifts that she might utilize.
Such as Brown's Chaw Tobaccy and Mother Silks Pills:
The latter to carekfor her seagoing ills.
lAnd when she came back, she had tales to tell
Of little Norwegians and sailors as well.l
Then, off to the Club to hear the band play
'Tho Annie and Dave got lost on the way.
After a year, Marian left on a run.
For a while we mourned and all felt quite glum.
But Dick then came in to keep spirits high
Until she returned in the near by-and-by.
Bill and Mary Ann followed close on his tail
And together they kept us from all going stale.
In March we toured Washington-good education.
In June a "big" Prom-not a sensation.
To top off that year Nancy offered to take
The whole dog-gone group to Rehobeth to bake.
Although we had planned to remain just one day,
When asked for the night, we could but obey.
Then we sadly returned in gloomy September ,
And who should we find but our wandering member..
Marian had come back with a will of her own -
And a brand new expression-precisely "Oh, groan!"
When we finally surrendered ourselves to routine,
We commenced to make plans for the 6'Best"'Evergreen.
In respect to this yearbook, you'd often hear "Can it."
Should it ever reach Boston, they'd probably ban it.
Now we're all waiting to get into college
Thatls where weill add to our Tower Hill knowledge.
At the end of the year with diploifnas in hand
We still have our memories at our command.

What was that ball of fire? Oh, that was Ann whizzing down the hall? The Seniors
all envied her ability to pay less attention in more classes, and to get away with
it better than any other one student in the school. Furthermore, all during her Junior
year she had a secret postal system across the back of the study hall. Volumes of
material exchanged hands. If some energetic soul should collect all those notes and
compile them, he would have a complete history of Tower Hillls social and academic
life, for Ann always knew everything that was going on everywhere. Whenever game
day rolled around, Ann could be found swimming around inside a cheerleading
jacket that was approximately ten sizes too big for her. But when the team was
there, she did some energetic yelling in spite of the size of the jacket. Now and then
she could be seen cornering some Senior for an interview. Shortly thereafter an
amazing and enlightening article would appear in the Dial.

Irrepressible Marian! Never at a loss for conversation. on subjects varying from
yearbook pictures to the philosophy of Thomas Hardy. ln her more argumentative
moods Marian would say to an opponent who had thought that she was cornered.
'QI see your point. but the thing is-." and off she would go on another round. We
would probably have been at our wit's end had she conducted these sessions in her
beloved Norwegiang however. she managed to stick to English. She was always think-
ing, and every time she had a thought-out it popped. But she never could stay' mad.
not even when she was being teased and she would always haye a good word for
everyone. lVlarian,s persuasive salesmanship at our football games saved many a de-

any kind of work, whether it required writing articles for the Dial and Evergreen,

Only the wise use of effort
and energy will bring success.
"There will be a meeting of the Social Service Committee-." Jane certainly con-
tributed a great deal of her time to the paper doll committee this year. As Miss
,lones's "right hand man" she had to keep all the activities of the committee going
smoothly. After all the favors her committee made this year, ,lane is probably still
dreaming of likely designs to use. All those who have driven with .lane would prob-
ably nominate her for the Gunneris club. She is one of the few,wh0 has mastered
going up a steep hill without shifting into second. lt's a funny thing, but Jane finds
that her radio works much better with a Hshirti' on the aerial. With her sterling voice,
,lane probably will find her calling in the Hawaiian Room singing sultry songs in
her Mother Hubbard. Once every six weeks last fall, Jane could be heard mumbling
strange numbers to herself as she drew lines on a sheet of paper. She wasnit suffering
from mental fatigue at all. lt was just that it was time to set up the Dial once again.
How Jane managed to get the paper out in spite of all the things that went wrong.
We'll never know.

Whose would be a man
must be a non-conformist.
If possession is nine-tenths of the law, then the plush red chair in the Senior Room
must certainly belong to Charlie. All this year he occupied that chair in peaceful
contentment. Every now and then he would rouse himself long enough to do a Mspotn
nf homework and then sink back into oblivion. We thought for a while that Charlie
V had taken to Buddhism, but it seems that it was just his unorthodox way of fighting
petty rules that he didn't like. One thing would always get him excited though, and
that was to hear someone criticize New York City. According to him, that metropolis
has had and always will have everything anybody could want. Why, one could even
travel for weeks and weeks for a dime--on the subway, that is. His perennial leads
in the operettas have given him a chance to keep his vocal chords stretched and
limber, but Chuck is not strictly a classics man. Many a time he has had violent
arguments with students as to whether jazz is an art form or not, and whether jazz
performers are as great musicians as classic composers.

A little nonsense
now and then is relished
by the wisest men.
"You've got it on the cranium, north of the earsln How many times has Bill assured
some overwrought Senior this undeniable fact? It was a masterpiece of wisdom which
seldom brought forth any retort. It would seem that it has been Bill's aim not to let
anything get on his 'icraniumf' for a school curriculum that always gets everyone
down now and then has completely failed to phaze him. Some of us are sure that
"Freddy" secretly cherishes a fond dream of turning Tower Hill into the worldls
foremost institution for the pursuit and training of that latest of the national classics
-baseball. If there is anything Bill hates, it's to be by himself. Through a quirk of
fate, or maybe it was the scheduling committee, a most grave injustice was dealt
him this year. Each day during 4th period he could be found falonel sprawled in
mournful luxury over the easy chair in the Senior Room. Completely deserted, he
could not argue amiably over the potentialities of a Ford motor, or discourse learn-
edly on the current topic of pegged pants. The rest of us will always wonder what
he did in there all by himself.

Judy has buried her nose in various and sundry Latin texts. According to her,
True Confession doesn't have a thing on the Aenead. We aren't convinced. Almost
any recess she could be found madly mumbling some bit of Roman wisdom to herself.
When she wasnit translating her homework she could usually be heard leading the

body would like: Why Judy wasn't the death of Jane and David the world will never

scribble away. She would always say that she did best when she only had five minutes

He knew the precise

John Heckert-magician. That is why we made him business manager this year.
Our financial straits certainly needed one. and he did the trick. too. for he turned
the minus S6 in our treasury into a plus S80 without turning a cent. That is what
we call practical everyday magic! John has a fabulous store of card tricks. too. At one
of Tinals parties he kept 6 boys in mental anguish for half an hour while they tried
to figure out how he did a trick, which he assured them was really very elementary.
John was very obliging. He let them cut the deck for him: examine top and bottom
cards before and after. He even did it blindfolded. Maybe it was elementary. but
they never figured it out. John will undoubtedly some day be a brilliant chemist or
physicist, for his capacities in these fields are astounding. He swears by his trusty
slide rule lmost of us can't even make one workl. and he likes extra physics assign-
ments as much as the rest of us do long weekends. lOnce in a physics problem he
even 'got 15522 efficiencyl. Next winter will undoubtedly find John relaying in an

A merry heart maketh
a cheerful countenance.
That fellow in the gray flannels is Don, the class artist. He was by far the most
studious of any of the habitual inhabitants of the Senior Room. Every now and
then, when the noise got too loud for concentration, Don would stalk off to some
hidden region where he could get his trig done. He was conscientiousness incarnate.
At recess, armed with a book, he would stride down the hall vainly trying to stop
running monsters, usually of the variety. Don is most famous for the startling ab-
stractions he has created down in Mrs. Souther's studio. They have been winning
Haon Art Awards with amazing regularity. During the past months it has been a
very lucky thing, indeed, that Don has had a crew cut, else he would undoubtedly
have pulled out all his hair when various Seniors informed him that he had set up
the yearbook all wrong. Occasionally he would produce a stack of papers covered
with strange lines, and would proudly announce that 20 more pages of the Evergreen
were all ready. Next year Don will be studying Fine Arts at Harvard, that is, if his
worried father and mother let him go, for Don likes to tell his aghast parents that
his sole aim in life is to become a cynic. Impossible!

The gal worthwhile
is the one who will smile
when things go dead wrong.
Five foot two, and every inch full of energy. How many times we have watched
Sandy eat and wondered where she put it all. We finally decided it all turned into
good humor because Sandy was the only member of the Senior class who didn't in-
dulge in fits' of bad temper. She lpoor girl! never experienced the pleasure of jump-
ing down other peoples, throats, or stalking around like some evil ogre. Sandy
was Copy Editor for the Dial. The only trouble was, she couldn't spell a word. Usually
Webster's is the easiest way to solve spelling troubles, but almost never having a
dictionary, and never being able to find her glasses so that she could read it, she
just had to ask someone else. What Sandy lacked in spelling, she made up in Math.
Her perfect papers were the constant amazement of befuddled classmates. Undaunted
by her size, Sandy made Varsity berths on all the teams. Many a cold windy day
Sandy stood shivering out in her wing. But more than once a ball went whizzing
into the cage because Sandy had given it a good hearty whack. Again her head could
be seen bobbing about among tall basketball players. No one had ever told Sandy
that guards had to be tall.

The tall, quiet girl with the terrific athletic ability--that is Nancy. The only girl in
the history of Tower Hill School to win varsity letters in four different sports, Nancy
also captained an outstanding basketball team in tenth grade and a winning hockey
team this past fall. Ever since her leg developed those hard lumps where her muscles
did half-nelsons on each other, she has been surrounded by a virtual fog of Ben-gue
fumes. Undaunted by the fumes, desperate tone deaf altos would struggle in chorus
rehearsals for a seat next to Nancy, the only alto who could stay on pitch. She also
has the distinction of being the only member of the senior class who can park a car
in only one attempt. Her long, green station wagon has squeezed into spaces re-
jected by smaller cars. ln the midst of senior room squabbles, Nancy often sits and
calmly does her French or the next day's Math. Talk about powers of concentration!
"Nannie" las Mr. Thayer persistently calls herj will long be remembered for her
notorious beach parties at Rehobeth. We're still shaking sand out of our shoes.

Either I will find a
way or make one.
Here, there, everywhere. That was Gail. She was searching for latent talent for some
new assembly, or maybe she was after some Senior who "forgot" that it was his turn
to stand at the chapel door, or perhaps, after lengthy consultation with her committee
of three, she would proudly announce that the students would not be favored again
I fifth year in a rowl with a lecture from J. B. Bushinwhacker, ex-headhunter. When-
ever she consulted her calendar of events, she could be found telling some Senior
that he was going to prepare a talk for chapel, whether he had a Senior theme to
write or not. The joke of it was, she joined that committee because she thought it
would give her more free time. As the Business Manager for the Dial, she was the
sole reason why the paper stayed on its feet during our regime. Many an afternoon
she spent convincing ,some dubious store owner that there was nothing quite like the
Tower Dial for advertising. She would usually inveigle him into taking an ad, too.
When Gail goes to college, we will probably find her talking people into doing, and
liking, things they never intended to get into at all.

Wit is the salt
The sound of scuffing loafers always announced the entrance of Dick into the Senior
Room. The way he walked rather characterized Dick. He always put out just enough
energy to get a thing done. Each day during foothall practice, he managed to put
out just enough energy to be working twice as hard as any of the hig lugs out there.
And in games he used to tackle just hard enough to knock some opponent silly.
Why is it that the fellow who canit even see his way onto the field is the one who
always blocks the passes? We wonder how he could see the ball at all, let alone tell
which way it was going. But Dick is a good person to have around off the foothall
field. too. Whenever he walked into the Senior Room, the atmosphere brightened
up immeasurably. Everyone would soon be chuckling over his dry remarks or teasing
him about his latest escapade. We all took advantage of the fact that he would take a
lot of teasing, but he usually got the last joke in at our expense anyway.

There is no wisdom
"There is no wisdom like franknessf' Never let it be said that any of Holly's opinions
were hypocritical! She could always be counted on to give a straightforward answer
when such was needed. Holly is noted for her reasoning capacities, deductive and
otherwise. She was often found seated with other Math enthusiasts, struggling over
a stubborn identity problem. And, of course, with success! Holly was one of our
more scientifically inclined constituents. She was not satisfied with the mere knowledge
that the paramecium wiggles its flagellum 7.004 times per second. She wanted to
know all the angles and intercepted arcs thereof. Hollyis voice could often be heard
through the din of the Senior Room, vainly imploring people to keep quiet. She was
often found frantically searching for a lost green pocketbook, and it was just a lucky
coincidence for our pathetic class treasury that Holly managed to keep our loot safe
and sound. Also along the managing line, Holly proved a cheerful distributor of the
Dial, and was never heard griping about the monotonous pages she was forced to
address. Unlike most people, who fall downstairs, Holly has developed a peculiar
ability for falling upstairs. Perhaps she reasons that it's more graceful that way.

collection of puns and jokes. The situation has never arisen for which he did not have

with the inspiring sight of our leisurely gentleman, formerly from Middletown and

he might feasibly have overlooked the day before. He claims that some day he'll in-

seems rather incongruous with his otherwise easy-going nature. but among those who
know him, it is a universally accepted fact that when Craig is playing with the window
shade sash. he is really devising some new use for the rope or perhaps for the whole

Was that a pink blouse, and a red skirt? If it was Tina wearing them, then you could
believe what you saw, for she has always taken great delight in proving that clashing
colors don't clash. When she got the urge every now and then to cut her long hair,
it was an occasion for serious debate among the student body. Dignified Seniors could
be heard gravely discussing the question in a tone of voice that indicated that it was
a matter of utmost importance. That long hair didn't really belong to Tinag it was a
school institution. But Tina never had time to make up her mind, for she was usually
dashing some where fhalf an hour latel in her little blue Nash, nicknamed the "Blue
Bug." If Tina had installed a meter in that car she would have made a small fortune
by now. It has carried more persons per sq. inch than any other vehicle around school.
When Tina wasn't broke from buying gasoline, she spent her money on flashbulbs.
Then, camera in hand, she would stalk down 'her innocent victims. When Tina Louise
walks through the door of Bennett next year, she will undoubtedly have a grin on her
face, and that camera in her hand.

side, Dave's writing ability has won for him two Colonial Daughters essay awards. As

The junior class. hrimming over with excitement. and full of big ideas for their
husiest year yet at Tower Hill. took their seats in the hack of Study' Hall last September
ninth. 'llhe old-timers were overjoyed to find three new additions to their membership:
Ben llay. Parry Jones. and llayid Mackey. making eighteen in all. a perfect numlmer
to carry out the lmig projects of the coming year.
Taking advantage of their l5-3 majority, the hoys managed to elect an entire slate
of male officers. Nlac jones was chosen to lead the class with Charles Atkinson as
vice-president. Grant llering lwecame the new secretary. and Lynn Sprankle. as last
year. was elected treasurer.
lfirst on the agenda was a Halloween Dance to make money for the coming Junior
Prom. l'nder the artistic direction of Don Brainard. the three girls and Mrs. Hering
fixed up some ahsolutely stunning decorations.
With the advent of foothall season. the juniors found that they held concessions for
two home games. While the hoys dashed heroically' ahout the field. the girls stuffed
the yisiting teams with popcorn and cokes. Thus the fellows won glory for the
school. and the girls wheeclled dollars and cents for the class treasury.
Early in the new year. the Juniors held meetings to start working on their dance
of dances. the Junior Prom. Throughout the year the traditionally secret preparations
progressed. with the final result of-a prom to top all proms.

After an "Oh, too shorti' summer vacation. the former Freshmen pulled themselves
together enough to arrive at school September ninth tthey were there physically if
not mentallyl. They greeted the five new faces lbodies attached! of Gail Fairman,
Lindsey Cairns. Mary Richards. Genie Lewis. and Bill Tulloch.
Off to a racing start at their first meeting with Mr. Wild, they went about the
serious business of electing class officers in an orderly fashion. To Don Gorkeran
was given the nerve-racking job of Glass President. Tommy Lawrence. as Vice
President, became Donis right hand man. Billy Weisbrod was elected to take care
of the enormous sums of money they planned to make. and to Dolly Ott was given
the job of keeping the minutes.
Their first Treasurer's report showed that they had the fabulous sum of 550.00 to
invest for future gain. They quickly put their heads together, and worked out an idea
for making shakers to be sold before the Friendis game. Since their profit from that
venture was rather on the smallish side, they determined to give a dance. After many
meetings, characterized by contests to see who could shout the loudest, the date
was set for February, and Valentine's Day became the theme. A four piece orchestra
was hired to draw the crowds. Thanks to this effort, their treasury began to look
like a treasury should look.
In the spring, oddly enough, without too much debate tin other words. no murders
were committedj, the class rings were ordered. Already they have started planning
for their Junior Prom, which they hope is going to be the best affair Tower Hill
has ever seen.

Freshmen at last. Whe-e-el That was the first thought of the ninth graders when
they returned to school last fall, and they still hold the unshakable opinion that
there is nothing, absolutely nothing like a Freshman. They at once set about initiating
their numerous new classmates into the school routine, and impressing upon them
the grave dignity commanded by their new position. ,lust to abide by custom and the
G.S.O. constitution, they formally elected class officers: President Webster Wheelock,
Vice President Mary Henry, Secretary Beverley Wellford, Treasurer Donald Hanson.
Once this was out of the way, they set about taking an active part in everything going
on in and around T.H. For the first time, the boys began to get a taste of football, as
it should be playe i. Of course, being tackling dummies for the Varsity seemed like
all work and no fun. On the scholastic side, they established quite a record for
themselves. After Mr. Thayer had overwhelmed them with a deluge of poetry for
several days, they could be heard loudly reciting "Boots, boots, boots, boots-" on
their way to lunch. Next year, no doubt, they will exchange their present exuberant
behavior for the more decorous mien befitting lofty Sophomores.

A growing force within the school, Tower l'lill's Student Council is showing signs
of becoming a really active body for the benefit and control of the students. As the
student enrollment increases by leaps and bounds, the value of a strong student
government is becoming more and more evident. With the election of this year's
council members in the spring of ,52, the show got off to an early start. After
several harrowing meetings, the election of officers was completed. Judy Green
emerged as the new council president, the first girl to hold the position since Caroline
Thelander did in '47. Don Homsey became her able right hand man as vice-president
of the council. Nancy Keith, who has been keeping minutes for years in one organiza-
tion or another, was elected the secretary. David Williams, as treasurer, has been
faced with the task of keeping straight the entire budget of the upper-school classes
and committees. Early last fall the council appointed the committees-bigger and
better than ever. Weekly meetings throughout the year have afforded ample oppor-
tunity for discussion of student problems. During Football season an amicable system
for the doling out of concessions was devised. Periodic requests of the Seniors for
lunch-line privileges were steadfastly turned down because the council felt it would
add to the already confused situation at lunch time. Through the suggestion of the
Juniors, the bookstore now handles heavy-duty covers for T.H. books. Early in the
spring, the council began work on a handbook designed for incoming students.
Committees were formed and plans drawn up for a printed booklet 'gshort enough to
be interesting, but long enough to cover the point." As the governing board of the
students, the council found during the year that its chief concern was the General
Students Organization. After this year's work, there is certainly no need to impress
tND G. S. O.

upon the students the importance of the C.S.O. They have found how much can be
done in co-operation with the administration. The monthly meetings in which they
can freely express their views have done much to break down the barrier of tension
between students and faculty. There are several outstanding examples of this. One of
these was the discussion on the testing system at the end of the marking period. The
students felt that the heavy program during the last week of the marking period was
doing more harm than good. and combined with the extra-curricular activities was
hurting the student morale. Student gripes and suggestions were picked up a
faculty committee. and a plan was made wherelwy no student could possibly have
more than two tests in one day. Another sign of unusual maturity was displayed by the
students in their handling of the Sanford game situation. Numerous other meetings
were dedicated to student husiness. reports. and committee meetings. On several
occasions the period was turned over to various teachers for special purposes. Through-
out the year. the G.S.O. has acted as a weather vane for student opinion. Together,
the Student Council, and the General Students Organization can do much to influence
the standing ofthe school.

SOCIAL SERVICE COMMITTEE
The Social Service Committee embarked this year, The most outstanding innovation was the Community

Miss Jones as faculty advisor, and Nancy Keith as amount of money at the beginning of the year, elimi-
secretary, on a somewhat different type of program. nated those appeals for money which used to come so
often! Among the various associations to which the
committee contributed were the Junior Red Cross
boxes, the March of Dimes, the American Heart Asso-
ciation, the World Student Service Fund, the Seeing
Eye Fund, and many other such causes.
As usual, they held the annual shoe drive for the
benefit of children in New Castle County schools, and
.M-..-., shortly afterwards led a very successful orange drive.
In the spring flowers were brought in and bouquets
made as a Mother's Day gift for those in the Home for
Aged Women. On Memorial Day, flowers were con-
tributed to be placed on the soldiers' graves in the
Mount Salem cemetery.
The upaper doll" committee was most conscientious
this year in providing birthday cakes, cards, and nap-
kins for each of nine crippled children in a cottage
of the Governor Bacon Health Center, and in making
holiday favors which were distributed by the Red
Cross to various hospitals around Wilmington.
This year, for the first time, members of Tower Hill
attended the Wilmington Weekend Work Camp, and
found it a very valuable and unusual experience.
Ably directed by Mary Ann Filson, the Dance
Committee began the year by forming four suha
committees whose members were to display their
talents in their respective fields. Diana Wardenburg.
known for her legible handwriting, assumed the
duties of turning out reams of invitations. Grant
Hering and his crew of electricians continually amazed
everyone with their unusual lighting effects. Hindered
by a lack of funds, Sandy Jellinghaus. and culinary
cohorts came up with sundry mysterious brews. the
contents of which stubbornly defied detection. Tina
Weisbrod. and her fellow artists drew up plans for
possible tand impossible! methods of hiding bleachers
and basketball hoops.

VVith the arrival of the Christmas season, initial
preparations were begun for the first formal dance.
It was discovered after the selection of an orchestra
satisfactory to everyone, that exactly 51.29 was left
for decorations and refreshments. Miss Judge spent
several unhappy weeks with her fingers crossed. The
Home-Ee room became the scene of many a lunch time
brawl before the theme was finally decided. Then. as
time for the dance approached, brave members of the
committee. and a few extra recruits could be seen
perched upon an extension ladder in order to get

ln spite of the scepticism of worried faculty members.
everything went off unusually well. and the Dance
Committee could boast a hundred and twenty-five
dollars profit. With a start like that. the committee
couldn't help but give a year of splendid dances.

HALL EXHIBIT COMMITTEE
Some startling things do happen around Tower Hill.
lf you donlt believe it, wander in the halls some time,
or lounge in the Reception Room, and you'll see what
we mean. lf you wonder what the prodigious creations
are, they're either African exhibits with zombies, or
some eccentric modernistic productions of the talented
Many other exhibits have been in the Reception
Room and halls from time to time. One of the first to
be shown was Mrs. Samuel Lenherls puppets. Her
collection consisted of puppets from ltaly, France,
and numerous other far away places.
At Christmas time, in connection with the art depart-
ment, two nativity scenes were arranged in the front
halls. The sculpture figures, made by the art students
were handled in both plain white paper for simplicity,
and colored paper to create a different effect.
Under the direction of Miss Souther, the committee
has kept interesting and educational exhibits in the
front halls and in the reception room. Chairman Don
Brainard co-ordinated the efforts of the art department
and his committee to provide the school with exhibits
and work of every conceivable type.
This year, under the chairmanship of John Heckert,
the projection committee has run the various films
which have been secured by the school. The most
prominent feature so 'far this year has been the show-
ing of the newsreels which are supplied by the News-
The duties of the committee include, besides showing
films, the upkeep of the projection room and equip-
ment. This equipment consists of the Bell 81 Howell and
the very complicated Victor motion picture projectors,
a new slide and strip film projector, two opaque pro-
jectors, and a tape recorder. Another duty of the com-
mittee is to teach the younger members how to run
all the machines. A very effective method has been
worked out for this. It consists of giving a member a
day's notice before he has to run a projector, which
means that he has to learn to run the machine in that
interval of time or look foolish before the class to
which the picture is being shown. More and more, the
audio-visual methods are being effectively used to
teach students quickly and thoroughly.

CHAPEL and ASSEMBLY
Student enrollment may have reached an all time
high at Tower Hill, but this year the membership of
the Chapel and Assembly Committee dwindled to
three. Undaunted by their small number, Mr. Brown
and his conscientious committee set to work to carry
out the aims of the Chapel and Assembly Committee-
to provide interesting assemblies for the students,
faculty, parents, and friends of Tower Hill School.
The main job seemed to be that of finding material for
the third period Monday assembly program each week.
The first Monday of each month was set aside for a
business meeting of the G.S.O.g the remaining ones
were filled with such programs as Walt Disney films
and Metropolitan Opera singers. This year something
new was also added in the form of a joint student-
faculty talent show. It was quite a job to get all the
"local', talent together, for no one, including the com-
mittee members, seemed to know just what was going
to happen next. Despite this slight detail, everyone had
a hilarious, and at various moments, a hysterical time.
The Chapel services were taken care of by Mr.
Stabler, with a few suggestions by committee mem-
bers. Parents, clergymen of different creeds, and lay-
men were invited to speak. Student participation was
also earnestly encouraged. A few ambitious students
took advantage of this opportunity to express some
of their more serious views on life to their fellow

the nick of time.

the school to see that all went well. Humorous and
pointed posters were continually putting in mysterious
appearances at prominent places around the school.

Nearly everybody reads the Tower Dial! The news
may be six Weeks old, and naturally everyone has read
everything long before it has been sent to the printer's,
but still, our four pages of news and fun are always
devoured from beginning to end. There is one thing
for sure: the Dial gives its reporters just as many
laughs as it does its readers. Who can ever forget
those Saturday Dial meetings when everyone madly
scribbled away in a vain attempt to write articles that
should have been completed two weeks before?
While Mr. Rust, we fear, looked on with one eyebrow
raised sceptically, the Tower Dial Staff of 1952-1953,
under the able and patient leadership of Jane Edwards,
published six issues. Jane set up most of the paper,
wrote some wonderful editorials, and in some miracu-
lous way which we haven't figured out yet, always got
the paper in by the deadline.
The Feature Editor, Judy Green, handled the Alumni
News, the "School Speaks," "Words From the Wise,"
and "Gustifver's Gabblef' Ann Atkinson managed to
pry the numerous achievements from the modest
seniors for the Senior Interviews. To Nancy Keith and
Don Homsey, both veteran writers on our school paper,
went the position of Sports Editors. There are other
'ibehind the scenen jobs which must be done in the
publishing of a paper. Sandra Jellinghaus was the

The Athletic Committee, composed of all the cap-
tains of varsity sports, has, as always, quietly per-
formed its several duties. With the help of Mr. Degroat,
the committee considered all those eligible for letters
and determined who had really earned the award. They
had one surprise for the boys receiving football letters.
Instead of awarding a letter to a boy, and then a star
for each succeeding year, a letter will now be given,
and with it a small gold emblem to be placed on the
letter to identify in which sport he has won it. ln
following years he is to be given a small gold chevron
to be placed on his original "TP Now one "Tn with
its several emblems will show the complete history of

Three athletic banquets were held at the school this
year. The first was the fall banquet given for the boys
and their fathers. The girls' hockey teams tenaciously
clung to the traditional custom of holding a dinner for
their teams alone, but they did agree to the suggestion
of holding a banquet similar to the boys' for the girls
and their mothers after the basketball season.
The committee, as usual, sponsored a dance after
the Tower Hill-Friends last basketball game. It was
held in the gym with records for music, and refresh-

Its upside down. No, it isnt. Well this is a crazy problem anyway.
Naturally these words could have been uttered in no other corner of the school than
the Art Room. There, ardent students paint and plaster strange "objects d,Art" while
Miss Souther maintains order and occasionally' makes unruly' Seniors stand in various
corners. Most famous of all are the problems which she dreams up for her students
taking art as a minor subject. For days they' sweat over scrambled bits of paper in a
vain attempt to make geometric shapes look ungeometric. Once they have succeeded,
or giver up, the finished products are carried up into the main hall of the school.
First came the Halloween masks. Who can forget the priceless pieces of hideousness
-those delightfully ugly heads that hung first in the dining hall. and then in the
Then at Christmas time came the two creche scenes- the figures of one done in
glittering metallic paperg those of the other in cool white.
Throughout the year, clay models, terra cotta figures, and oils were displayed in
they Reception Room. The works of younger students filled the boards along the hall,
while various posters advertized everything from shoe drives to driving courses.

Tant-ta-ra, here come the chorus members. Mr. Bourgeault must have been quite
startled last fall when he auditioned the crowd of eager students. He had everything
from boy sopranos to girls that could sing low G. Everyone finally found common
ground at middle C, but it is slightly difficult to offer a season of exciting concerts
if all the numbers are sung on middle C. Plunging into preparations for the first fall
concert, Mr. Bourgeault found that occasional notes of musical worth could be
elicited from the motley crowd after all. With one successful appearance made before
the Upper and Middle School, the chorus worked earnestly on a Christmas program for
the Home and School Association. As the curtain rang up, the platoon system of
student accompanists went into action in spite of cold and shaking fingers. After this,
everyone was ready to start on the big performance of the year-the operetta. Many
musicals having been studied note by note by the diligent selection committee,
Gilbert and Sullivan's "Iolanthe" was chosen for production. Many were the headaches,
and the hours of toil, but they paid off in a glorious show enjoyed alike by cast and
"Curse you, Jack Dalton," '4Still Alarm," "Gloria Mundi," "Unto Thy Doors."
Thus stands the glittering array. Mr. 4'Mastermind,' Patterson may be getting gray,
but everyone else looks fine. From props to prompter everyone putvon a great show.
Of course, there were occasional moments when the uncouth audience was so dis-
concerting as to laugh at the completely wrong time. The applause always came
through, though, and the thrillers received nothing short of ovations. The stage crew
had a riotous time constructing sets with conservative rose-red walls. Propmen ran-
sacked the undeveloped area for victorian sofas and old velvet drapes. fThe latter still
needed, by the way, since the Gold Ballroom at the Hotel duPont seemed the only
possible place to obtain such everyday items.J Those in charge of lights made their
star contribution during the Christmas play, which couldn't possibly have been
done without its unusual lighting effects. The actors themselves-in their stomachs
no butterflies now flutter--thought up fabulous ways of concealing portions of the
scripts in odd spots about the stage. So rings down the curtain on a successful season.
Here's hoping next year's group has this much fun!

VARSITY TEAM First row left to right: Judy Green, Brooke Bryan, Sandy Jellinghaus, Nancy
Keith captain Barky Moore Jane Edwards, Tina Weisbrod. Second row: Marian Brown, manager
Ann Davison Mary Ann Filson Deayne Appleton, Holly Trentman, Miss O'Neill, coach.
A group of Tower Hill girls officially opened the
hockey season a week before school began by at-
tending Miss Appleby's Hockey Camp in the Po-
cano Mountains. Although it took Coach O'Neill
nearly two weeks to cure all the loyal crew's head
colds and aching limbs, the week was nevertheless
considered most worthwhile, since all the Tower
Hill teams soon began very successful seasons.
The first varsity game didnlt turn out as well as
had been hoped, as the team suffered its first and
only defeat of the season from Westtown Friends
School by a 3-0 score. The girls soon climbed to-
ward the victory bracket by playing German-
town Friends to a 0-0 tie the next week. Both teams
played exceedingly well, and the Tower forwards
just missed scoring on several occasions, while the
defense continually managed to clear the ball out
of the striking circle.
Captain Nancy Keith was unable to play in the
Tatnall game because of a lingering leg injury she
received at Hockey Camp, but the team carried on
in fine style to romp over the opposition, 8-0. Full-
backs Barbie Moore and Judy Green, and goalie
Ann Davison had little to do, as Deayne Appleton,
Sandy Jellinghaus, and Mary Richards continually
racked up the goals with fine backing up from half-
backs Brooke Bryan, .lane Edwards, and Holly
" " ' '
After scoring a 4-0 victory over Friends Select
of Philadelphia, the girls played perhaps their best
game of the season against Sanford Preparatory
Only a few minutes of the game had elapsed before
Judy Green scored Tower Hillis first goal against
Sanford in six years. Sandy Jellinghaus scored
again during the early minutes of the game, but
Sanford soon regained their old fight and gave the
backfield an exhausting time while scoring their
only goal of the game. Sandy tallied the only goal
of the second half, as Tower won a well-deserved
3-1 victory. Before the final game of the season
against Friends, the Varsity landed a close 3-2 win
over Eddystone High School, as Mary Ann Filson
scored the winning goal. After the boys had pre-
sented an inspiring pep-rally preceding the Friends
game, the girls went onto the field brimming with
spirit, and Sandy Jellinghaus soon scored Tower's
first goal. Friends came back to hit the girls for
two goals before the half. Undaunted by the score,
the team again took the offensive as Judy Green
tied the score. Tina Weisbrod also scored, but the
ball hadn't been hit inside the circle. Since the goal
didn't count, the final score remained 2-2.
Through the endless effort of such swell coaches
as Neil, Richi, and Undy, and the captainship of
Nancy Keith, the team completed a highly success-
ful season which is bound to be repeated next fall
with Deayne Appleton as captain.

J. V. HOCKEY TEAM
The J. V. hockey team, under the able leadership
of Captain Ann Atkinson, had an extremely success-
ful season, with a record of five wins, one tie, and
They began the season by defeating a strong
Westtown team, 1-0, with Charlotte Rode scoring
Tower's first. goal of the season. For the second
game, the team journeyed to Philadelphia where
they met Germantown Friends. The Tower half-
backs, Gail Landy, Jean Baldwin, and Diana War-
denburg, did a beautiful job of backing up the
forward line, and were rewarded for their efforts
when Mary Richards scored to tie the game, 1-1.
Led by the high scoring of Mary Atkinson and
Mary Henry, the Green and White eleven then over-
whelmed Tatnall by a 13-0 score. Tower next took on
Friends Select and had no trouble beating them,
6-0, as Debbie Theisen tallied three times. The fifth
encounter was played on the windy Sanford field.
Through the excellent teamwork of fullbacks, Janet
Baker and Lindsey Cairns, and goalie Judy East-
burn, the Sanford eleven were prevented from scor-
ing. However, the Sanford defense could not keep
the Tower forwards from making two goals.
The girls won a 3-0 game from Eddystone before
the big game with Friends finally arrived. Both
teams were fighting for an undefeated season, and
although the Tower team fought hard, they were
not strong enough to overcome Friends, as they
lost a heart-breaking game, 4-0.

CHEERLEADERS-Across, left to right: Tina Weisbrod. Mary Atkinson. Mary Ann Filson,
Debbie Theisen, Judy Green, head cheerleader. Down: Dorothy Maney, Charlotte Rode, Ann
Last fall Judy, Mary, and Debbie held a mass practice every day for a week which
was designed to acquaint prospective additions to the squad with the rigors of cheer-
leading. It was by all means a survival of the fittest, for by the fateful day of tryouts,
only the heartiest were able to hobble out on the field for the final test. ln spite of
aching muscles and creaking bones, everyone tried her best to put on a big smile and
look peppy, and after much debate and consultation, five cheery new cheerleaders
were weeded out of the ranks to be the latest additions to a bigger and better squad.
The original plan was to have a rotation system whereby six girls only would cheer
each week. The system became too complicated for such feeble minds however, and it
was finally agreed that all eight would cheer at every game. There was just one prob-
lem--there were only six jackets-beautiful new creations designed especially for
Tower Hill by Lane Bryant. After numerous dog fights, six lucky souls made off with
the new jackets and the other two unfortunate people were forced to dig up whatever
manner of white coat they could find.
The year was by no means without its brawls. Head cheerleader and peacemaker.
Judy. had her hands full keeping her wards in one piece throughout the season. ln-
sults came from without as well as from the inner circle. One member of the opposite
sex even had the audacity to make the disparaging comment that Tower Hill's cheer-
leaders looked like a line of chorus girls. This odious human was amply rewarded at
the big pep rally when all of his kind were favored with a real chorus girl cheer--words
created by the football team and kicks created by the cheerleaders.
The big pep rally which was organized by Judy was held the night before the Friends
football game at Ronnie Carpenters roller rink. Days before it came off. cheerleaders
could be seen sweating in the locker room madly trying to think of new cheers-
something FUNNYg the big day found the cheerleaders dressing the tackling dummy
in a motheaten practice shirt and a pair of undersized football pants or sitting on
the floor of the first grade room in the midst of broken crayons working on posters.
ln spite of the mad confusion, the pep rally turned out to be a big success. Of course,
you can't beat the Tower cheerleaders.

With another September, another football season rolled around, and the Tower
Hill gridmen settled down to hard work approximately a month before the opening
game with Sanford Prep. However, the trip to Hockessin proved rather disappoint-
ing in that Sanford capitalized on a rain of fumbles and won- by the score of 25-0.
The next contest with Friends Central School of Philadelphia was equally dis-
appointing because a very heavy and deep F. C. squad handed the Hillers another
drubbing by a score of 32-13.
Germantown Friends came to Wilmington for the third game and overpowered
Tower Hill. Undaunted by previous lop-sided defeats, the green and white traveled
to Baltimore, Maryland to play St. Paul's School and again received defeat.
Baltimore Friends, the other Maryland team on the season's schedule also succeeded
in defeating Tower Hill, but by the quite close score of 20-12. The most important
factor in the Baltimore game was an excellent passing attack on the part of the
The green and white eleven gained its first victory of the season over a scrappy
St. Peteris School team from New Castle. Tower Hill held the lead at half-time and
kept it to come out victorious by a score of 25-12.
With one win behind them, the Tower team met a very strong St. Andrew's team
and received its worst defeat of the year 46-7.
Tower Hill ended its 1952 football season by playing its traditional rival, Wilming-
ton Friends School, on November 22. In view of the season's records, the game
was about as closely a matched contest as is possible. Both teams had had miserable
seasons as far as wins and losses are concerned. The first half was a deadlock with
both teams punting very often and getting only one first down between them. About
midway through the third period the Friends team was penalized 30 yards through
two unnecessary roughness penalties, and the Hillers capitalized on this by scoring
on an off-tackle slant. Shortly after the first touchdown, the Hillers hit paydirt from
forty yards out on a fullback slant. The third touchdown came on the same play
which had scored the first two, a slant by fullback Mac Jones off tackle. Jones added
the extra point on an end run, and the game ended with the jubilant Hillers ahead
19-0. The final game brought the Tower Hill football seasonis record to two wins
and six losses.

SUB J. V. TEAM
The ability for losing football games seems to have permeated throughout the
Upper School, in that the Sub J.V. team, an innovation of this year, won only one game
of four. There were two Sub ,l.V. games played with Friends School, both of which
added to the Tower Hill lost column-one by the score of 0-13, and the other 7-20.
The other two Sub J.V. games were played with the Little Red of St. Andrews. The
Hillers lost one of these games by a 6-7 scoreg however. they succeeded in winning the
other by 27-6. Besides playing unsuccessful contests, the other main function of the
Sub ,l.V. squad was serving as pawns for the Varsity in various and sundry timing
practices. All in all, the Sub J.V. team this year was a good proving ground for
future Tower Hill Varsity players.

MIDGETS and SUB-MIDGETS
The extremely poor seasons suffered by the Varsity and Sub ,l.V. teams respectively,
were partly made up for by a sterling Midget team. The Midgets won four games,
three by shut-outs, and lost only two. The two losses are explainable in the fact that
both were to a very heavy William Penn eleven. The losing scores were 7-20 and
0-23. The four wins were won from Friends School and Sanford Prep. The Junior
Hillers beat Sanford by scores of 13-6 and 13-0. ln the four games played in its own
league, Tower Hill scored sixty-three points while allowing but six.
The Sub-Midgets had an average season, winning one, losing one, and tying two.
The Very-Junior Hillers won one game from Friends by 12-6 and tied one
6-6. They lost one to Sanford 0-13, but succeeded in holding them to a 0-0 deadlock
in the second game. Both the Midgets and Sub-Midgets should, when members of the
Upper School, prove to be a great help to the athletic endeavors of Tower Hill.
A GIRLS' BASKETBALL
VARSITY--Left to right: Nancy Keith, Holly Trentman, Mary Ann Filson, Debbie Theisen,

Tower Hill has had and will continue to have many outstanding girls basketball
teams, however, the Varsity team of 1953 will undoubtedly enter the records as one
of the greatest. For the first time in at least ten years, the team upheld an undefeated
season, winning eight games and tying one.
A great deal of credit is due to the team's two coaches "Richie" and Neil but
most of the laurels go to the girls themselves who combined their sklll and spirit to
produce most rewarding results.
The fact that the team had already played together was most beneficial Captain
Judy Green and Nancy Keith had played for four and five years respectively while
Holly Trentman, Sandy Jellinghaus, Gail Landy, and Mary Ann Filson helped pace
last year's team. This season found Deayne Appleton, Debbie Theisen, Mary Atkinson
and Tina Weisbrod also seeing game action.
The team won its first game of the season against Germantown Friends 60 39
After defeating Sanford Prep, 41-24, the girls captured a 48-35 victory from Christ
Our King. The following game with rival Friends found the Tower girls on the top
side of a 52-33 score.
Perhaps the most exciting game of the season was with Westtown Friends Tower
Hill had trailed their opponents by at least ten points until the last quarter when they
tied up a 54-54 game in the last few seconds.
In a 55-42 victory over Friends Select, Nancy Keith set a scoring record with 40
points. After handing Sanford a second defeat, the team played their last Friends
game. Nowhere could a happier group of girls and coaches be found than in the
Tower gym when the final whistle blew, giving the girls a 57-31 win. The team played
their final game against a two-year unbeaten Shipley team. The girls deserve a lot
of credit for ending such a terrific season with a 43-28 triumph.

.Although they didn't equal the record set by the Varsity, the Junior Varsity team
also completed a successful season. Led by co-captains, Tina Weisbrod and Charlotte
Rode, the team won six out of nine games. The girls lost their first game to German-
town, but came back with two well-played victories over Sanford and Christ Our
King. After losing two heartbreakers to Friends and Westtown, the team Won their
last four games, including the last Friends game and the final game of the season
with Shipley School.
The eighth grade girls' team also staged a very successful campaign, scoring five
victories out of six games. Through the fine coaching of Richie, the spirit of Captain
Dido duPont, and the wonderful teamwork of the girls, the team defeated Sanford,
Krebs, Oak Grove, and Friends, losing only their final game with Friends.

While the majority of Upper School girls played basketball during the winter
months, ten girls chose to form a badminton group under the renowned coaching of
Pro ,loan 'cUndy" Underwood. Every afternoon from three fifteen until four forty-
five, the girls took rackets in hand and spent an exciting afternoon of fun and frolic
on the kindergarten court.
Up until the week of February 26th, the girls played merely for the fun involved in
the game. Then during this last official week of winter sports, the group held a
tournament. Both the singles and doubles matches were played excellently, and even
the less experienced girls showed good techniques and sportsmanship.
After three games, Melinda Maston and Mary Laird managed to defeat Dolly Ott
and Michele Freed to capture the doubles tournament. ln the singles tournament,
Dolly Ott lost two games to Melinda Maston, giving her a double title. Although the
following girls didn't make the finals, each one of them played good sets, Ann
Atkinson, Gail Fairrnen, Gail White, Lenna Watts, Betsy Hasbrook, and Jane Waddell.
All in all, the badminton activity proved a lot of fun and enjoyment. ln spite of the
cramped court, the warped floor boards, the immovable piano, and the strewed blocks,
the girls had some good experience and practice. Here's hoping that Undy will have
recuperated enough by next winter to teach the group some more about her famous
slams and hairpinsl

Ben Day and Bon Carpenter succeeded in enjoying one of the best seasons in recent
The Hillers opened the season by defeating Avon Grove on the home court by a
score of 46-37.

The team next ventured to Middletown where they rolled over St. Andrew's 83-44.
Captain Bill Liffelman was the outstanding scorer with thirty-two points.
Again the Tower Hill rooters were disappointed when a fast Sanford Prep five
managed to pull by the favored Hillers by 43-41.
After much favorable speculation at the beginning of the season. it looked as if
the Tower Hill team wasn't going to do as well as expected. having so far a 2-2
record. However. the team started a spectacular winning streak by defeating German-
town Friends 60-46 on the Philadelphia court. St. Peteris felt the Hilleris power. when
Bill Kffelman established a new school record of thirty-eight points in one game and
led the team to a smashing 93-24 victory. Tower Hill next defeated Friends by an
impressive 68-54 score. Friends Select fell easy prey by a score of 52-41. The Green
team continued its streak by whipping Westtown 53-45.
Again Tower Hill met St. Andrews and again succeeded in setting them back by
scores of 49-31 and 85-46 respectively. However. the Tower streak was halted by the

The season was opened by a game with Avon Grove which was lost by T.H. 17-19.
The next two games to Unionville and St. Andrews were also dropped by 41-47 and

The Hillers next lost one to Germantown ,Friends 25-29, but broke into the win

The second win of the season was at the expense of Friends Select School of
Philadelphia. The Hillers scored 31 to Select's 27.
After a 31-38 loss to Westtown, the Hillers again hit the win column against St.
Andrewis 37-26. The next game was lost to Unionville 23-31, but the St. Peter's game

With the coming of Winter, the versatile speedball group donned their faded
green hoods and under Mr. DeCroat,s leadership started another season of diversified
and interesting activities.
Engaging in a variety of sports designed to satisfy all, the speedballers could be
found almost anywhere in or around Tower Hill. Some days the players could be
found wildly chasing a soccer ball over the sloping fields of Rockford Park. When
bad weather kept them off the fields the group invaded the gym basement to engage
in tumbling and fierce three minute wrestling bouts. They also found time to convert
the tennis courts into volleyball courts, and to get in some ice skating when weather
permitted. On game days the speedball boys attended the basketball games and
helped assemble the bleachers.
The highlight of the season, however, was the two soccer games scheduled with
Friends School. Although they had ambitiously drilled for the game, the uThursday
Clashes" fell to Friends 1-0, and 41-O.

Before March 21st officially welcomed the spring season, the tennis courts were
frequently crowded with girls trying to shake out all their basketball kinks before
Coach Marilyn O'Neill began to scout for players to fill the vacancies left by last
Last year was the first that tennis was considered a letter sport, and this spring
found the following five letterwomen returning: Mary Atkinson, Mary Ann Filson,
Debbie Theisen, Sandy Jellinghaus, and Nancy Keith. Completing last season's squad,
which succeeded in winning one and tying one of its four matches, were Holly
Trentman, Diana Wardenburg, Charlotte Rode, and Deayne Appleton. With a few
more prospective players joining their rank this spring, the team turned in an even
better record. -
The team not only continued last season's schedule with Wilmington Friends,
Westtown Friends, Tatnall, and the Bryn Mawr School of Baltimore, but also played
matches with Garrison Forest School of Baltimore, Agnes Irwin School of Phila-
delphia, Shipley School of Bryn Mawr, and a group of Alumnae.
