LAT SNOXVDON MIKE BERESFORD BILL ULIN WEN G THE YEAR 1954 5 5 E As we look back on the year 1955-54 we remember many and various thingsf classes, football games, chapel, Dial meetings, dances. Most appropriately is the motto of Tower Hill malta bane farlfzwumany things well done"-for Tower Hill indeed offers a broad program including many various aspects and into each of these many aspects brings its excellence and high standard. Throughout these many phases of school life we notice certain things peculiar to Tower Hill-little things which dis- tinguish Tower Hill from any other sschool and which mean Tower Hill to us. Let us now turn our minds back on the past year and recall what it has held for us. We had all been awaiting the morning of September 14th with a certain mixture of anticipation and dread-anticipation of activities soon to be in full swing and dread of losing our cherished freedom to sleep late in the morning and to lounge in the summer sun all day. As we walked into chapel that morning we were suddenly very glad to be there, greeting our old friends all sun-burned and smiling, some of whom we had not seen since june, meeting our new classmates, and seeing the newest additions to our faculty. When chapel was over and we hurried to fill out our charge slips and fight our way to the book store, it seemed as if we had never had that three months vacation. Soon we became acquainted with all our new friends and found out which teachers were tough and which were pushovers. Hockey and football practice began and from three to five every afternoon the playing fields became scenes of great activityg Upper School girls could be seen limping and groaning after grueling cheerleading tryoutsg the G.S.O. com- mittees began organizingg the Seniors gave their Get-Acquainted Danceg and soon the school year was in full swing. The school day, routine as it was, was never without its share of excitement, humor, and surprises. Arriving at Tower Hill in the morn- ing, the student was greeted with the sight of a large crowd gathered on the front steps and a long line of cars stretched along 17th Street and Tower Road. When the clock on the Tower pointed to 8:15 the steps were hur- riedly cleared as the crowd fought its way in- side and upstairs. Once or twice a month we were apprehended in our. progress by a loyal Social Service Committeeman who reminded us that we were three months behind in our pledge and did not seem convinced when we assured him that we would be sure not to for- get the money tomorrow. At 8:30 the first chapel bell rang, and un- derclassmen conscientiously set out for the auditorium. Four or five minutes later the Senior Room door would fly open and 16 in- dividuals would run the marathon in an ef- fort to get into their seats before the doors closed. 1 if 'Ll IS ffl Tuesday and Thursday assemblies were high- lighted by student speakers who told us about everything from ice cream to eels. We were es- veciall deli vhted b' the lon er s neeches which l Y fp l S l made us late for our first neriod classes. l After the first five periods, we were prac- tical-ly fainting from hunger, but we somehow managed to make it down to the cafeteria. Scowling underclassmen grudgingly allowed juniors and Seniors to exercise their head of the line privilege and Mr. Hartmann was omnipresent seeing that his precious eighth grade did not get cheated. The only quiet place in the cafeteria was the French table. There struggling etudiants of French sat grinning amiably at each other attempting at intervals to make halting ungrammatical small talk bout the weather or the quality of the food. It seemed as if the year had just begun when Thanksgiving vacation was suddenly upon us. The next five weeks until the Christmas holi- days were one hectic but wonderful rush. The Juniors and Seniors left for New York where they really painted the town Green. One group of students even waited outside the U.N. and took a picture of the Russian delegate, Malik. Although visiting the United Nations was the ostensible pur- pose of the trip that purpose was a bit overshadowed by the New York nightlife. Hillers dined at such famous spots as Chrlffrillbffzllllf, M1121-011 Mario, and the Dizmz Pameiezz, and then set out for the theatre, seeing many of the latest l1itsfCfz11Ciz1z, The King .zmf I, and The Sewell Yun' lick. The morning after was something to behold. Three or four of the more sturdy souls dragged themselves out of bed and attended early Mass at Saint Patricks, but the majority preferred a later hour of arising and leisurely window-shopping at Beyfi' or Saks Fiffb Azwme. It was a droopy group of students that staggered off the train to greet their parents back in Wfilmington. After an extra long Christmas vacation, we sadly returned to the halls of ivy with unhappy thoughts of the coming Mid-years. Even after this strain had been taken off our minds, the Seniors continued to mope around with sick expressions on their faces until March 15thkCollege boards. In spite of their worries and misgivings, the Seniors seemed to come throughwith flying colors, when college acceptances began to roll in during the middle of May, they were joyful to find that in most cases they had been accepted by the colleges of their choice. About this time of year, all Hillers from P.K.'s to Seniors be- gan to count remaining days of school. The days were filled with a steady flood of events-Senior themes, Field Day, Finals, Bac- calaureate, Class Day, Commencement, and finallyithe junior Prom. Half glad and half sad, students waved good-bye to the little red schoolhouse, looking ahead to summer fun and back to work again next fall, A-'WL . rk' Q m HN' . f A AY .-X fl THE FACULTY Q Sitting, left to right: Charles XVarner. jr..

BROOKE STABLER Headmaster To the Class of 1954: As some of you have left my office, I have seen you pause to read The Srhoolmfzyferj- Prayer by Ian MacLaren which hangs framed by the door. It reads: Lord, deliver the laddier before Thee from lying, rheoling, coufofdice, and lozirzerf which ore as lhe devil. Be pleafed fo pu! common sense in their heurls and give them grace to he honest men all the days of their life. It is my additional prayer that these words may be indelibly imprinted upon your minds as you who are seniors leave Tower Hill. Tower Hill stands for and seeks to do many thingsg but first and foremost we seek to develop integrity and nobility of character, without which all else is of no avail. Remember, therefore, that the facts learned, the games played, the hobbies enjoyed, the friendships made-all these will prove nothing down through the years unless they have beneath them the foundation of stalwart character.

This question has puz- zled both bewildered students and conscientious parents for many years. Maligned in the dining halls, mocked in the Senior Room, the Tower Hill teachers weather the storm amazingly well. To further this investigation, the E1'e1'green has done the inevitable-as is currently in vogue-it has taken a poll. The statistical Tower Hill teacher, who is nothing more than a well-garnished average, has an M.A. degree, has attended three colleges or universities including Princeton, Virginia, Amherst, Harvard, Yale, University of Delaware, Columbia University, and the Sorbonne. Only two or three have written books, although most have "collaborated" or written articles. Some of the teachers seemed quite embarrassed not to have writ- ten a book. We would suggest that if they have any free time this summer, they publish one, because simply everyone is doing it. The teachers come from every state along the eastern seaboard from Virginia to Massachusetts, with a sprinkling of inland states. We must note that our History department had a Con- servative Republican background so there is no chance for sub- versive theories to emanate from that area. Our Latin depart- ment gained its first bit of culture in a one room school house. From the scrutiny of interviews, we have been able to find the avocations of the average pedagogue. He sleeps every chance he gets, he reads for entertainment and has a hobby such as photography, flying, gardening, hunting, traveling, writing, or community welfare. To aid the students in passing courses, we have made a detailed study of the way teachers compute numerical grades. English uses M4 classwork, M4 homework, W tests, with a lit- tle common sense. Mathematics uses the average of test grades either raised or lowered according to homework and class recita- tion. Math teachers also used a "dash of their own judgment." Religion is balanced equally between discussion and tests. History, which has a light animosity toward Mathematics, con- descended to determine grades "more or less arithmeticallyf' Burning desire to learn and an understanding of subtleties seemed to be a fine qua non in this subject. Every move one makes in Latin counts toward the grade and French emphasized daily recitations. It could not be ascertained how the German grade was decided. There is a rumor circulating that it is deter- mined by a combination of basketball ability, sense of humor, and interest all added to 60. Attitude seems to play a minor part in each department, showing that there is still hope for the "brown noser." Most teachers felt that any extra curricular activity which "ex- cites one's curiosity and gratifies one's desire for 'accomplish- ment' " would develop intelligence. It was generally conceded by the language and history departments that work on the Dial and independent study would be the best way to do this. Mr. DeGroat felt that football developed powers of objectivity, analysis, psychology, confidence, cooperation and sacrifice. All brown nosers should take careful note of the above so they can impress the teachers of their choice. Since many of the teachers felt that any work in their field was good, they must be quite satisfied with their work. On being asked what the teachers thought would be the greatest benefit of their courses to the students in later life we received the following answers: English: "the ability to communicate information clearly" and "to understand while reading." Religion: "instilling a sense of true values and laying a foundation by which to live." History claimed, with a certain arrogance, that it was the only subject which taught students to think. However, Mathematics felt it developed the habit of "clear and logical thinking." French: "Better understanding of another nation leading perhaps to World Peace." Latin: "Ap- preciation of words plus cultural background." Art: "Creative Hobby." Football: "Unforgettable Memories." Music: "Enrich- ment." Eighty-five percent of all the upper school teachers attended most? athletic contests. In the boys' sports eighty-one percent at- tended football games, seventy percent attended baseball games and sixty-three percent attended basketball games. In girls' sports sixty-three percent hockey, fifty percent basketball, forty- four tennis. Teachers felt that athletics played a vital part in building a "school spirit" which continues in the classroom. Teachers felt that the friendly spirit between the students and the faculty was the primary difference between Tower Hill and other schools. Others mentioned the high academic standards, cultural background and a feeling of enrichment. Mr. Stabler epitomized Tower Hill in these words: "Fine academic stand- ardsg cultural background of students, emphasis upon basic fundamentals, religious program and requirements, seemingly happy student body who likes school." Mr. Yule's comment, "the confusion," was probably the most realistic. However most of the teachers felt that the informal student- faculty relationship is too often misunderstood by some pupils who feel no obligation to produce work. At meals table manners are comparatively deplorable or non-existent, but when the occasion arises they are always the best. Everyone felt that study habits were good and the vast majority was extremely conscientious. They thought that there was a good bit of time wasted, especially in the study hall and library, in getting down to work. The most provocative question was about the increase in boy- girl relationships in Tower Hill. This year for the first time in recent years the steady or the "perpetual" has found its place in the daily routine. Even in the halls between classes you can see its effect. As one teacher commented "has it in- creased or is it increasingly obvious?" Everyone seemed to agree that so long as it doesn't interfere or overablance the purpose for which students came to Tower Hill in the first place, it is all right. Miss jones, who ought to know, said it was not new and so long as it was kept in moderation it was permissible. On the lighter side, we heard such comments as "nauseating after years of conditioning in boys' boarding school." "If baseball doesn't cure it nothing will," and "C'est la vie." These comments were taken from the majority of upper school teachers excluding the Science department which didn't manage to answer the questionnaire. This is true probably because they were too busy with practical work to squander their time on things this banal. ww EDNA M, LOWERREE OFFICE STAFF-Marjorie B. Milus, Elizabeth A.

CHARLES DESSAU ATKINSON III e school library, nor the city li- brary, nor Ldary's of Philadelphia can supply a certain book, periodical, or reference, the next person to whom he invariably turns is Charlie Atkinson, whose vast libraries offer a limitless source of reading material, and whose large vocabulary attests to his extensive reading. His main means of unleashing his vocabulary are in English class and in his DIAL column, "Once Over Lightly," in which he manages to use most of his newly-acquired tongue-twisters. In the Senior Room, Charlie is usually seen either madly attempting to arrange his three shelves or desperately cramming for a History test or Math 'quickie' which is coming up next period. As well known as his bibliomania and honor grades are his feats on the basketball court, where he has played varsity for the past three years, and on the football field, where, snagging fingertip passes from his right end position, he acquired the appropriate nickname, "Bird," Charlie is quite a tal- ented, though self-made musician, having taught himself to play the piano "the Dean Ross way,', as well as the ukulele and the guitar. He sings bass in the chorus, and he enjoys harmonizing in the Tower Hillbilly fashion both in school and at parties. How- ever, not until the boarding school vacations does Charlie show his true self, and only then does he manage to show up at parties and dances with a date. During what little time outside of school that he can call his own, Charlie can many times be found either loafing or playing tennis, two favorite pastimes at which he's expert. Despite Charlie's qualms and fears about being accepted at the college of his choice, it is certain that he will be accepted with open arms, and that wherever he goes, Charlie Atkinson will open doors of new pleasures and adventures which will never include a dull time or-a small vocabulary. f , flpdxl' 0-lk! of f P r 0' L 0' f lf Kp m W N UWM ,MM kffvxvpjfoxvx ,W of Ji' WM lk KX Qu 001' Qpllfvii Dial 52, 535 Girls' Sports Editor 541 EVERGREEN Assistant Copy Editorg Student Council 52, 543 Secretary GSO 54g Chorus 52. 53. 54, Operetta Lead 52, 53, Dramatics 53, 54: Chapel and Assembly Committee 52, 543 Dance Committee 53: junior, Varsity Hockey 51, 52. 53: Hockey Manager 533 junior Varsity Basketball 52: Badminton 54. JANET ELLEN BAKER No matter whether in the Senior Room, in the halls or in the classroom, when you hear a cheery voice, you know Janet is close at hand. Dashing around on some im- portant errand, her hair in a tousle, she always has time to give a friendly greeting, and her good hmnor soon infects all those with whom she comes in contact. She is al- ways full of vim, vigor, and vitality. Enthusiastic participant in hockey this year, janet served as the team's manager, and on Thursdays she was often seen scurrying around the hockey field laden with stopwatches, scoring books, and first aid kits, and followed by two or three assistants, impressed into service, carrying trays of oranges. She enjoys singing in the chorus, and in the Senior Room she is usually one of the first to lend her voice to any "Barbershop Quartets." Don't mention Colorado to Janet or you wiU be stuck for the afternoon. Aften spending a summer out there, she became so crazy about the place, and especially about the horses which Colorado possesses, that she is planning to go to college in that glorious state. janet is the veritable book worm of the Senior Class, the only one who can find time to keep up with the best seller list. She says that her favorite book is The Saint, and she tells everybody how she loves it. When spring comes, she can always be heard expounding on the merits of the Phillies. Janet's winning ways, her enthusiasm, and her friendliness should carry her far in college and in whatever she may undertake in her later life.

MICHAEL BERESFORD XXfhen Mike, otherwise known at "The Duke," first appeared at Tower Hill, he was shocked at the narrowness of the curriculum-"They don't even have a general course in animal husbandry!" He continued to decry this lack for the following three years with varying degrees of enthusiasm. Soon, however, he found that he had attained the magic age of sixteen years, after which time no one in the school had any peace. Some- how he acquired an old beat-up 1950 Ford to which he added duals, a coat of blue paint, a non-muffling muffler, yellow fender skirts, and a girl. The identity of the latter was found to fluctuate from time to time, but there usually was one to be amused and amazed at numerous driving feats, such as wrapping the car around a telephone pole, and then unwrapping it. He continually brought into the senior room supplies of motor magazines and instructions on "how to hit 120 in three seconds in low gear." Of course, one must never forget the memorable days when he would return from a grueling race with the French room clock, remarking "That fcensoredj French Certainly most of us will not soon forget the many passers Duke smeared as defensive end on the football team and the many pillows which were last seen leaving his hand in the general direction of the window. We apologize, of course, for moving his book- shelf so often, but we hasten to assure him that he has added a certain color to the atmosphere of his class which will long be remembered by all who knew him and were cussed out by him.

RONALD CARPENTER Whos that roaring off in that hot, two-tone Studebaker? That's Ron Carpenter. A three-letter man, who enjoys his greatest success in football as a pile-driving halfback, Ron can always be counted on to give just a little more of himself as a contribution to the team effort. Extremely friendly and popular, possessing both generosity and good humor, he goes his merry way, always making new friendships or strengthening old ones, and always willing to lend a hand to someone with a problem. In the class- room, Ronnie can always be heard sounding off on any and all subjects at any time and often drives the teacher to distraction with numerous questions pertaining to "Heav- en knows what!" But during the winter months, this docile, lovable young scholar be- comes a blood-thirsty gunman who spends every free moment shooting down ducks on his farm in Chestertown. Also, Ron is the senior room policeman, as he manages to quiet down even the most raucous of pillow fights by merely employing a few well- chosen words. As Ron leaves Tower Hill, he leaves behind a long list of friends and achievements, and we all wish him the very best of good luck. It couldn't happen to a better guy.

BENJAMIN DOWN ING DAY "Hey, 'Headl' How do you do this problem?" In the Senior Room, this question is probably asked more often than any other, and is directed toward the class genius, Ben Day. Although he is often a candidate for the High Honor Roll, Ben's talents are by no means limited to scholastic channels. As everyone will attest, he is an excellent bas- ketball player, and his skill in this field won for him the title of Co-Captain. In the Spring, he shows his prowess as a baseball player, and has pitched our team to many a victory. Moreover, only last summer he walked away with second prize in the Delaware State junior Golf Tournament! In the Senior Room, he entertains his classmates with his subtle humor, and has never been known to be caught at a loss for words. How- ever, his classmates will long remember him not only for the game he invented-"jim Runny," but also for his famous sayings, such as: "Say, that's not too jurisprudentn or "Oh! ho, I'm afraid we'll have to inflict a two card penalty against you." Ben has sur- prised us with his flair for acting-we will certainly never forget his portrayal of Ern- est in "The Importance of Being Ernest." In his two years at T.H. Ben has not only set many scholastic records, but has also made a great name for himself. Wherever he chooses to go to college, we are sure he will be a great success.

WILLIS duPONT Who is the quiet, reserved Senior who can almost always be found either twitching about a math or a physics test next period or lounging peacefully in the reclining chair? That's Will-the only person who can rest comfortably and unperturbed as pillows fly whistling about his head. Because of his uncanny quality of being able to concentrate even under the most trying circumstances, he is envied by every nervous member of the class. When Will isn't worrying about his marks or about being accepted into the col- lege of his choice next fall, a poetry book can often be foupd in his hand, while he distractedly mumbles, "Something's rotten in the state of Denmark," or "English class isn't what it used to be!" Will, who has attended Tower Hill for the past thirteen years fKindergarten included, that isj, has seen many changes, and many students, teachers, and policies come and go, while only a few have remained permanent. One of his perennial favorites, next to English 12 poetry, is shepherd's pie which, unfor- tunately, we have only about once a week. Outside of school, Will is often seen either on the tennis links or at the wheel of his '52 Olds, with which he claims he isn't com- pletely satisfied. Some day, he says, he's going to build a 'duPontmobile,' which will be "The Car of the Century." Will should have no scruples about being readily accepted to his favorite college next fall. When the Class of 1954 becomes a memory, Willis duPont will certainly be remembered for his calm, cool, collected reticence and reserve. 1 l u .

GRANT BARNITZ HERING "Let's get serious!" That is Grant Hering the Senior organizer calling a meeting of the DIAL. Whether his work, on the DIAL has made him dependable or his depen- dability has made the DIAL we will not venture to guess. But we do know that his responsible attitude has done much to give a stabilizing force to an otherwise somewhat less than reliable class. This opinion is combined with that fact that he spends so little time in the Senior Room. Grant never learned that football players were usually con- sidered to be heavy or that basketball players were to be tall. Displaying an unprece- dented amount of energy and alertness, Grant captained the varsity football team to a winning season. He was also a forward on the basketball team and also captained the baseball team. Perhaps the truly amazing thing about Grant was his astonishing readiness to cater to the whims of a certain junior girl. No matter what Grant was doing he was never too busy to answer her gentle knock on the Senior Room door. We thus believe that this cooperation will carry him far in this world. Wan-4 W MALCOLM G. JONES, JR. Flash! There goes another flashbulb off as the camera catches a typical scene of confusion in the Senior Room. The man behind the camera is naturally Mac jones, class photographer and future candidate for the All-American Football team in 1957. Many times this past football season Mac took the pitchout from the quarterback around end and outran everyone on the field, including his own blockers. When Mr. Hartmann tries to build up Princeton in his fifth period history class, you can be sure to hear Mac leading the Southern contention of the class in fighting for his first-love, the University of Virginia. In spite of all his efforts, Mac cannot seem to get across to his cohorts that one does occasionally do some work at this Southern institution. Many are the tales that the seniors have heard after Mac takes a trip to Virginia. Sometimes he tells about his hunting wild ducks, but usually it's those southern belles that one hears about. As President of the class Mac has had the undesirable job of keeping peace between the three girls and thirteen boys. When several radical seniors begin a pillow fight or put a firecracker in the pencil sharpener and ask for someone to light it, Malcolm either stops such action or quickly disappears. Or when concessions are to be sold, Mac calmly persuades the girls that the boys are really so busy that they will just have to do it. When asked why Mac was on the varsity basketball squad, Mr. Wild always says, "When things aren't going too well and the play becomes rough and dirty, only Mac can cure the trouble !"

JOHN PETER LORAND When john came to Tower Hill from Harlan School Cnot to be confused with Har- lemj, he made an unprecendented record for sheer brainpower. Although his under- standing of physics, chemistry, trigonometry, and the French "u" has made many of his classmates envious, his intelligence is most readily displayed in non-academic activities. Working as manager of the basketball team, he has learned to compute scores to the nearest ten-thousandth. For example, if Tower Hill won a game by the score of 56.5786 to 565785, you knew it was john and his cheating pencil which had brought about this state of affairs. We could always count on Ox fthe affectionate nickname is very mis- leading, for there is obviously no similarity between john and an Oxj to laugh at our jokes because his keen mind could find humor in almost anything, occasionally includ- ing things that weren't funny. As for John's creative humor, it is a widely believed that his puns were merely a successful attempt to disguise his intelligence. When we read of a research chemist who has developed a process for the oxidation of hiccups as a step in the manufacture of playing cards, it will probably be our boy john.

DAVID LEVIS MACKEY Slam! That is the resounding noise which is heard regularly at least three days of the week, three minutes after the other avid American History students are in their seats. Something always seems to hold him back fpossibly a jim Runny gamej but he has more than made up for this fault with his uncanny ability to laugh his way out of a proposed visit to Mr. Yule. Ever since Dave entered our class, things have been more lively. At any time he is likely to come up with some choice comment which is intelli- gent, witty, and belligerent in nature and which ranges from the various characteristics of a crowbar to how to win at cards. Dave is always on the go, it seems. After the rush of the academic day, Dave can usually be seen industriously participating in some man- ner of game, of which tennis is his favorite sport. Although Dave doesn't go in for some of the more well-known indoor sports such as patrolling the halls or swapping rings, he certainly comes out to cheer the Tower teams on to victory. When a loud voice booms forth with the exclamation: "Oh! That's a great one!" you can be sure that it came from Dave who was congratulating the referee for a foul, well-called or otherwise. Also, Dave's literary talents have been a great help to the DIAL staff and he will undoubtedly in future years be writing ucritiquesl' to spend his spare time. it-.ft . tif 'I 5 .

This is the mournful wail usually heard in the Senior Room as another EVERGREEN deadline draws near and the call goes out to Dorothy Maney fmore familiarly known by her unfortunate nickname,j to help with some writeup that must be finished. Dorothy's position as editor of the EVERGREEN is indeed an unenviable one, what with all the trouble she has in gently persuading her classmates of the im- portance of procuring ads, and meeting deadlines, not to mention her difficulty in try- ing to wrest a bit of writing from some delinquent Senior. We hope, however, that the experience will someday prove as valuable as it has been trying. Chorus singer and accompanist, perennial Honor Roll occupier, Feature Editor of the DIAL, sports en- thusiast-what more can be said about our illustrious classmate? Also as head cheer- leader, she has been doing her best to instill school spirit into everyone who happens to come her way. Dot is one of the wittiest girls we know, her shrewd remarks can be heard emanating at every possible opportunity to convulse her classmates with the cynicism, which can be caustic or just for fun, depending on which way it is taken. Dorothy works like a dog though, and we expect her to do many superb things after she graduates from the college of her choice.

W. LATIMER SNOWDON JR "Have you heard Carmen Lombardols clarinet solo on St. Louis Blues?" That is Yogi speaking, the boy who is a great admirer of music in all forms except progressive, popular, and hillbilly. In his leisure time he is usually either sitting with his ear glued to the radio or else sitting with his ear glued to the phonograph. His aesthetic sense is not limited to music, as he is an admirer of art in its modern forms. He often ex- pounds for hours about some abstract drawing to which no one else can see any point. However in his more conventional moments he produces excellent works of art, one of which earned him a Haon award honorable mention. Is Rameses II a good cigarette? Ask Yogi. He is a connoisseur of tobacco as well as art and music. If you are looking for him, you have only to follow the fragrant aroma of whatever mixture he is cur- rently burning in his pipe. In addition to his other cultural attributes Yogi holds the title of pillow-fighting champion. He earned this distinction by once pounding an ad- versary to his knees with one stroke, a feat never accomplished before or since by any- one else. When not pursuing the cultural aspectlof his hobbies, Yogi frequently enter- tains himself in the evening at one of the better bowling alleys. He usually scores well, bus constantly complains that the pin boy is jinxing him, As we leave Yogi we wish him luck, feeling sure that his Southern gentleman's cheerful good nature and co- operative spirit will bring him success in whatever field he enters.

He's probably right in the Senior Room playing "jim ,det Runny" or reading his official WCKY Almanac. When not devoting himself to the lighter side of life, Lynn occupies himself with either photography or his studies. He has taken many of the pictures which have appeared in THE DIAL, and is head of photography on the EVERGREEN staff. He has also found time to tend to the class funds for the last three years, and by now is certainly an expert both on financial af- fairs and in convincing his more suspicious classmates that he has not swindled them of their treasures. During most of his 13 years at Tower Hill, Lynn has been taking piano lessons. He is now quite a good player and often plays at school functions. As for his preferences in music, he says classical is definitely the best, but likes to listen to hillbilly. Lynn has done well in athletics at Tower Hill, winning a varsity letter in football and playing varsity baseball. He has also distinguished himself in the field of science. He is the only student in recent years to discover a new chemical element QBa-ron, a greenish-blue liquid, symbol Bnj, and he has perfected a duo-decimal system of numbers which makes higher mathematics a snap for anyone who can count up to three. Next fall will probably find Lynn getting accustomed to life at Harvard, but no matter where he decides to go, his alert mind and friendly nature will help him get ahead.

At first, the boys thought she didn't understand English very well, but when their conversations began leaking out in the girls' locker room, they finally got wise. That Norwegian accent of Jo's really has endeared her to everyone she has met-including some pretty surly prospective adver- tisers for the EVERGREEN. jo certainly proved her ability to catch on to anything new. The first day of hockey practice she held a hockey stick for the first time, but by the end of the season she was playing like a real pro. Her scholastic ability is just as out- standing, for in spite of "john Brown's Body," her name has always been on the Honor Roll. When Jo returns to Norway this summer, she will probably have to hire a special boat for all the pictures she has taken in this country. We hope that when she looks over her photograph album back home, she'll think about us and decide to pay another visit to the United States. l 53. 54. ' ROBERT ULIN Is anyone looking for an argument? just see the Maestro. He will argue about any- thing, anytime, anywhere. All one must do to get into an argument with him is to name the subject and what side one intends to take. Of course, Bill will win hands down! To our knowledge he has never lost an argument. He is at his best in American History class, arguing on anything from the jared Sparks Map to the Monroe Doc- trine. He has already been offered the post of Secretary of State under President Tom Hartmann in '68, He is noted for his witty verses which have earned him the title of poet laureate of the Senior Class. As a poet he is best known for his epic poems which have the delicacy, subtlety, and force of a dead fish. When he is not invoking the muses, he may be heard doggedly perfecting his intonation on the harmonica. His great- est achievement with this instrument was learning to play it left-handed so that it would not interfere with his driving. On any school morning Bill may be seen several min- utes late fighting against the mob toward the senior room. Bill is constantly frustrated in his endeavor to find a better mentholated cigarette. We are sure that his shrewd- ness and talent for debate will bring him great success as a lawyer.

Incidentally, rumor has it that Gene is practically the only living human who can eat baseball for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, work all night, and play baseball all day. Most of Genes idiosyncracies are due primarily to his Middletown upbringing. He speaks sometimes in idioms taken from Latin, French, and his Middletown culture, pro- ducing a language which is, while interesting, not quite intelligible. Recently, he has partially changed his residence and commutes alternately from Middletown and West Chester. The student government, under Gene's competent guidance, reached a new low which was lower than the previous low lows-which means, of course, that a lower num- ber of disciplinary measures had to be taken. Gene carried his intelligence into the class- room, where he was singularly adriot in comprehending the intricacies of the American Multiplication Table. We will all miss Gene when he leaves at the end of the year, but we know that his competence will carry him far in life.

As the past school year came into being, back in September, it brought with it a great problem for the Junior Class, one which has, no doubt, bothered many junior Classes in the past-namely the prob- lem of producing mankind's scarcest element- money. As the executives of their group, the juniors elected Don Corkran, president, Rock Montague, vice president, Dolly Ott, secretary, and Billy Weis- brod, treasurer of what funds they could provide. Since a new football season was just around the corner, the most obvious way to start raising the needed cash was to obtain concessions for part of the home games. Back row: Bill Porter, Horace Montague, Robert Richards. Front row: Nancy Quillen, Mary Richards, Dolly Ott. Seated: Mary Mike Milus Gail Fairman, Genie Lewis joan McDowell. When Halloween rolled around another chance to add to the treasury presented itself in the form of a Halloween dance. The juniors very eagerly took advantage of this opportunity and presented a most enjoyable dance. QAt least that was the general opinionlj Then they started planning for what was to be the most important event of the year-the junior Prom. After many weeks of discussion a theme was finally chosen. As things turned out, the choice was a good one, since the combined efforts of the mem- bers of the Junior Class produced one of the best Proms ever!

When September 14 rolled around, the illustrious Sophomore Class, well sunburned and full of energy, returned to face a new and eventful school year. After welcoming their seven new classmates, they adjourned to Mr. Wild's room to elect Pete Wells, president: Howdy Cross, vice presidentg Michele Freed, secretaryg and Mary Henry, guardian of their huge treasury consisting of 30.00. The first class meeting proved to be more destructive than con- structive, but at the second meeting they began to accomplish something: plans for a dance were dis- cussed and a date in February chosen for either a Valentine Dance or a "Dragnet Drag." An orchestra was hired, and after the dance, their treasury looked somewhat bigger. Back row: Bill Snyder, Reeves Montague, Bob Mosbrook, Bill Mosbrook.

After much debate a ring was chosen, and their arrival in june is eagerly being awaited. The class of '56 is looking forward to next year when it gives its junior Prom.

Temporarily subdued, they welcomed into their ranks eight new members: Dick Ullman, Nor- man jellinghaus, Sam Perry, David Burrows, John Lopez, Lois Kay, Frances Heckert, and Charles Mun- son. They then staged a brilliant campaign and elected Gil Yule, president, Peggy Moyer, vice presi- dent, Jimmy Wild, secretary, and Roger Kinsman, treasurer.

On the athletic fields however, the seniors of '57 proved to be very useful members of the jayvee hockey and basketball teams and Varsity and jayvee football squads. In English they learned the drastic consequences of comma blunders, they valiantly at- tackled that vicious language, French, and in biology they peeked into the everyday life of the placid amoeba, With all their accumulated knowledge, they can't wait to take their places next year as full fledged sophomores.

STUDENT COUNCIL This year's Student Council in the first GSO meeting chose janet Baker to replace Melinda Maston as secretary. In the same meeting, students were given an opportnuity to express their committee preferences and were then assigned to the various committees. Our campaign against the profane comments which appear on the lavatory walls last fall succeeded in weeding our several young gangsters, but no charges were brought against them because we felt that they were enough ashamed that they would not con- tinue their misbehavior in the future. Next, we were faced with the task of procuring a Christmas tree for the middle and lower schools to trim at the annual tree-decorating assembly. A tree was discovered at Mr. Drake's in Coatesville, Pa., and Bill Weisbrod, Torn Lawrence, and Bill Beck jour- neyed out there one Saturday morning, cut the tree down, and hauled it back to school for the ceremony. During another meeting Charles Atkinson suggested that the Student Council place a suggestion box in the upper hall so that students might deposit any gripes or plans for improvement which the Student Council might develop. This plan was enthusiastical- ly received by the members of the Council, and Horace Montague and Tom Lawrence set to work constructing the box. Although this year's Council started off slowly, once started, they contributed a great deal to the betterment of Tower Hill, and as the years go on and Tower Hillers learn more about student government, the Student Council should become a smooth-function- ing and influential machine. s Back row: Carol McGrew, Mary Ann Rosenbaum, Lenna Watts, Lana Richards, Abigail Brill, Molly Chase, Michele Freed, jane Waddell, Ann Bush.

SOCIAL SERVICE COMMITTEE Throughout this year the Social Service Committee, with Brooke Bryan as chairman, Mary Milus as secretary, and Miss jones as faculty advisor, has been extremely busy. Its first project was to organize the Community Fund Drive from which it contributed to the Junior Red Cross Enrollment Drive, The Seeing Eye Dog Foundation, CARE, the American Heart Association, the American Cancer Association, the March of Dimes, the World Students Service Funds and various other appeals. Early in the fall, the Committee invited Mr. Morris from the Seeing Eye Dog Founda- tion, to speak in Wednesday assembly. Following this, it filled fifty gift boxes for the junior Red Cross. At Christmas and Easter time the Social Service Committee made favors for the Veterans Hospital and throughout the year provided favors and birthday cakes for each of the twelve children in its cabin at the Governor Bacon Health Center. The Committee's main project was the adoption of an orphan through the Foster Parent's plan. A part of the funds go to help support Kang Soo Yob, a twelve year old Korean boy whose parents were killed while fleeing South Korea as refugees. Kang Soo and his two brothers had survived as best they could until his eldest brother was drafted at which time he and his other brother were placed in an orphanage. The com- mittee has sent various gifts to him on his birthday and at Christmas and in return has received several letters. At Christmastime three baskets of oranges and apples were collected for distribution to several childrens homes. After that a clothing drive was held, followed by the annual Gardenia Day in March. BROOKE BRYAN Chairman MARY MIKE MILUS Secretary DANCE COMMITTEE This year the Dance Committee under the supervision of Miss Ernst, faculty r 5 J' advisor, and Mac Jones, chairman, gave three very successful and scintillating 'O dances. The first bi event was the informal Victor Dance, held on November 8 Y ' ,LJ 21, after the annual football clash between Tower and Friends School. In s ite , P yx -5 SN of the Hillers' heartbreaker on the gridiron that afternoon, everyone joined in and fl, A. had a good time. jack ,Dougherty provided the music for a fitting climax to both ll 64 the football and the hockey seasons, and the two schools parted again as friendly rivals. 5 Next on the agenda was the Christmas Dance, given on December 18. After working laboriously for many days, the Decoration Committee again achieved the X , impossible, transforming the gym into an appropriate Christmas wonderland. The music of Howard Cook was excellent, and, in spite of a few minor mishaps, every- - ,W one, both students and faculty, had a very enjoyable evening. After two such successful dances, there seemed to be a great excess in the treasury. The Committee, reluctant to leave next year's heads with so much money, decided to give an informal spring dance. Since school matters become a little hectic at this time of year, arrangements for the dance were allowed to slide, but at the last minute, things were whipped into shape, and the Dance Committee, with its usual efficiency, was able to mark off another success on its social calendar.

"All the news that's fit to print plus some more that isn't," would perhaps suit the Tower Dial under the 1953-54 staff. Led by nine Senior and two junior staff members, one two-page and six four-page issues were edited over a space of six marking periods. The opening day issue was the first of its kind since the Dial came into existence eleven years ago and highlighted this year's publications. Following mid-years the new staff took over for the remain- ing three issues of the school year. CHORUS Tower Hill's chorus has Presented many programs during the course of the school year. At Christmas they met the Friends chorus, for two concerts, one at Tower Hill and one at Friends School. The operetta presented in March was Oscar Straus's "A Waltz Dream," with leads David Warren, Carol McGrew, janet Baker, Charlotte Rode, Carol Williams, Tuss Greenewalt, Mac Landy, John Plant, Alison Collins, Mary Ann Rosen- baum, and Bill Beck. This year has been the first that Tower Hill has had an orchestra. Under the capable direction of Mr. Carveth, it made its bow in a short concert before the Christmas play. INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC The Dramatics Club enjoyed a full and successful season as usual. Under Director Patterson it elected officers, Ron Carpenter, President, john Lorand, Vice President, Lynn Sprankle, Secretary, and plunged into the perennial task of selecting its first play. This, produced in early November, was a "mystery without a solution" entitled "Let's join the Ladies" and featured an eager cast of 16 players. The Christmas play was the always impressive "Why the Chimes Rang." Although it was rehearsed for less than four weeks, the actors applied themselves well, and with the splendid cooperation of the stage crew, an admirable production ensued. With the end of mid-year exams came the prospect of two more plays, one to be given in early March and the other in late Spring. The first, it was decided, would be a comedy by Regina Brown entitled "Tom Sawyer's Morning." Bill Porter took the title role and was supported by a large and diverse cast. Not satisfied with its success at school, the group took their production out to the Alfred I. duPont Institute, where the young patients were given a real treat. As our EVERGREEN went to press, the last play of the season was still only in the future, nevertheless the Dramatics Club was in the midst of a successful, productive year, with hopes for many more.

The Tower Hill Chapter of Cum Laude, which was founded in December, 1942, began with twelve members. Each year the Chapter elects one-fifth of the graduating class in its junior and Senior year and adds two members of the faculty as honorary members.

BALL With seven returning lettermen plus other potential varsity players from last year's squad, Coach Bob De Groat called his team together on September lst for two weeks of practice before the beginning of school. During the weeks of preparation for the opening game against a new rival, Newark Academy, eleven players were woven into a strong unit which was to remain fairly constant throughout the season. Baird Brittingham, fresh from four years of Yale football, used his playing experience to build a strong line, while Coach De Groat ran his experienced backfield through timing drills. The trip to Newark, NJ., proved successful as the Tower eleven marched 45 yards late in the fourth quarter to gain a 12-6 victory. With spirits high the team worked hard for the next contest which was to be one of the toughest of the year, the Friends Central game. After giving up a touchdown early in the fourth quarter, the Green and White team marched for two six-pointers in the last four minutes of play to pull the game out of the fire, 13-7. A pass interception on the one yard line by Grant Hering brought a long awaited for victory against the Philadelphia eleven. The first letdown of the season came at Germrntown Friends. A listless Tower Hill team gave up two touchdowns in the first half and seemed incapable of moving toward a score.

With a minute left in the game, Tower moved to the Germantown one yard line, but lost the game as four plays failed to net a touchdown. Two weeks practice revived the squad as they traveled South to run all over Baltimore Friends, 32-20. Highlighted by Mac jones' four touchdowns, the game would have been even more one-sided had not the second team given up two touchdowns. Preparation for the Delbarton team, champions of the Ivy League of New jersey private schools, was seemingly wasted as the contest was snowed out. But perhaps this gave the impetus for the Sanford game as Tower Hill crushed the Yellow team from Hockessin 39-0. Ronny Carpenter scored four times to lead Tower to its first victory over Sanford in some twelve years. The final game against Wilmington Friends, proved too much for the Tower eleven. The offense failed to move as Friends won the traditional game by a score of 12-0. Charlie Atkinson was Tower's only player receiving votes for the Robinson Award which went to Friends tackle, Mike Blake. The 1953 team brought winning football back to Tower Hill after three losing seasons. Gang tackling, deadly blocking, and roughwbruising football paved the way for the successful four and two record.

CHEERLEADERS- Early in September Charlotte, Dorothy, Debbie, and Mary began teaching cheers to those who wanted to try out for the four vacancies on the cheerleading squad. After a week of practice, a panel of judges composed of the boys' and girls' coaches, the var- sity captains, and the old cheerleaders, after much debate chose Judy Eastburn, Brooke Bryan, joan McDowell, and Lea Carpenter. These eight cheerleaders, under the leader- ship of Dorothy Maney, practiced endlessly and using their combined ingenuity came up with numerous new cheers, such as Fight Yell, Green Team Win, and Team Yell. Something new was added this year--junior Cheerleaders. Stephanie Conklin, Cynthia Lewis, Susan Perry, and Carolyn Lewis kept up the spirit of the younger rooters and cheered the midgets on to many a victory. This year Tower Hill has had more school spirit than ever before, and in December the cheerleaders for the first time received awards in recognition of their part in keep- ing up the pep of both players and spectators.

Kneeling: Co-Captains Charley Atkinson, Ben Day, With the passing of football season, Mr. Wild set to work in an attempt to fashion a winning basketball team. With five returning lettermen, all seniors, including c0-cap- ains Charley Atkinson and Ben Day, plus a host of promising substitutes up from last year's Junior Varsity, his job was not to be a difficult one. His first efforts were well rewarded as the squad downed a good Avon Grove five, 49-44. A journey to Unionville was less successful as the latter's strong, tall team pre- vailed, also by 49-44. The next week, however, the Green and White steamrolled a weak St. Peter's team, 92-38. The Friday before Christmas, the l-lillers upped their rec- ord to 5-1 by vanquishing Friends Select on the Philadelphians' small court, 47-29. Following Christmas vacation, the squad took on St. Andrew's of Middletown, top- ping them by 54-40. Germantown Friends fell under the pressure of an unusually close game, 40-36. The current four-game win string was snapped in a home game which marked the ,. a - 7-if b- first encounter in recent years with a public-school-league team. Although Tower led Salesianum at halftime by 12-10, the Sallies' reputation for the strong finish was felt, and the visitors pulled away to a 38-29 victory After mid-years the first of the annual classes with Friends occurred, also on the home court. In a fairly tight battle of defenses, the Hillers prevailed all the way, winning by 37-26. When a second public school team, Delaware City, failed to arrive, under spurious excuses, the team was credited with a forfeit, upping its record to 7-2. A visit to Little Three rival Sanford resulted in an easy 50-26 success. Lightning then proceeded to strike thrice. At Westtown Friends a tall, experienced squad outlasted the Hillers in another tight duel, 38-35. Three days laer, in the absence of center Atkinson, the team lost still another close match, 50-49, to a heretofore weak St. Andrew's offering. The return match with Unionville was not without honor as Tower carried its strong foes into overtime before bowing by 50-48. Winning ways were resumed in time, however, in the second Sanford test, as the Green Wave romped to a 60-32 victory. The climax to Tower Hill's fifth successful season in as many years came in the Friends clash, staged on the Alapocas court. The Hillers, dominating the play, played one of their better games against inspired Blue and White cagers, rolling to a 42-34 triumph. In view of the outstanding teamwork ex- hibited by the 1953-'54 five, which bowed out with a 10-5 log, Mr. Wild and the school had just cause for pride. The junior varsity aggregation, coached by Mr. Hartmann, may be considered even more sticcessful, as the second team enjoyed its first winning record in several seasons. The future varsity, composed of such promising boys as Bill Beck, Reeves Montague, Gil Yule, jim Wild, Bob Mosbrook, and Roger Kinsman, defeated handily such squads as Unionville, 40-31, Friends Select, 28-17, St. Andrews, 37-24 and 35-313 Sanford, 47-14 and 47-155 and arch rival Friends, 33-29 and 30-26. The only defeats were ad- ministered by Salesianum, Unionville fthe return matchj, and Westtown. With their record of 12 won and only three lost, they may look forward to some productive varsity seasons.

Kneeling: Debbie Theisen, Charlotte Rode, Co-Captains. With high hopes of equaling last year's undefeated season, the Girls' Varsity, cap- tained by Charlotte Rode and Debbie Theison, opened its 1954 season by tying Ger- mantown Friends 44-44. The next week, the Tower Hill continued their success against Sanford, winning 24-16. The third game of the season found Tower Hill up against a strong and determined Friends School six. In spite of the hard work and fine teamwork of the guards Charie Rode, Barkie Moore, and Ann Davison, Tower dropped the game in a two minute overtime by a score of 41-40. The girls' luck seemed to increase as the Hillers defeated Friends Select 43-12 before losing to Sanford 34-36 and falling before St. Elizabeths 39-42. On February 20, the Varsity, out for revenge, met Friends School for a second time. Forwards Debby Theison, Deayne Appleton, Nancy Quillen, and Mary Atkinson clicked time and again to bring the Hillers out victorious 37-29. Fol- lowing this, Tower Hill went on to defeat Westtown, Shipley, and Baldwin, finishing the season with a record of 6-3-1. The Junior Varsity got off to a bad start, losing to Germantown, Sanford, and Friends, they began to click in their fourth game against Friends Select, winning 45-16. Meeting Sanford a second time, the Junior Varsity came out victorious, before losing to St. Elizabeths 20-23. In their next encounter with Friends, they edged out the Quak- ers 33-31 and went on to beat Westtown 28-18. In an end of the season slump, how- ever, the junior Varsity lost its last two games to Baldwin and Shipley. GIRLS' J. V. First row: Alison Collins, Tory Kitchell.

AlThough only 22 per cenT oT Tower Hill sTudenTs consider Themselves "going sTeady," anoTher I4 per cenT Think The word "sTeady" has a somewhaT unTorTunaTe connoTaTion, and They claim ThaT They are iusT "going," whaTever ThaT means. An inTeresTing poinT is ThaT There are Tour more boys Than girls who are going sTeady. These boys are eiTher disillusioned or else have secreT Tlames who are being kepT under cover. One oTher losT soul didn'T seem To know iusT whaT his sTanding was. Besides Those who "go sTeady" and Those who iusT "go," There is anoTher 2I per cenT who would "go" if The opporTuniTy arose. The remaining 43 per cenT have decided To play The Tield. Encouraging, isn'T iT? The caricaTures abouT whaT Mr. Tower Hill looks Tor in Miss Tower Hill are prac- Tically selT-explanaTory, and The reader may consTrue Them To mean anyThing he wishes. Miss Tower Hill likes a preTTy versaTile sorT oT fellow who has 4I per cenT personaIiTy, 28 per cenT looks, I0 per cenT manners, 7 per cenT heighT, 6 per cenT dancing abiliTy, 5 per cenT money, I per cenT sTupidiTy, and I per cenT cleanliness. WhaT The Tinal I per cenT wanTs isn'T Too clear. 38 per cenT of Tower Hill's upper school sTudenTs have daTes once or Twice a week, which roughly corresponds To Those who "go sTeady" or iusT "go." I9 per cenT have daTes Two Times a monTh. corresponding To The people who would go sTeady ii They had The chance. ln The remaining 43 per cenT, There are abouT 8 per cenT who daTe once a monTh. There are 20 per cenT who would Take 'em or leave 'em, buT, if Taking 'em, would Take 'em once or Twice a semesTer. The oTher I5 per cenT never have daTes, and This group corresponds To Those who look for noThing in The opposiTe sex. 28 Domestic Offices from Coast-to-Coast 8 .i I A ld ,mining I we--ui IINIIAIWLISIINW r el!!
