K' As we, the Class of 1955, go forward to Commencement, the ful- fillment of our school-day dreams, we feel a strong need for some- thing more tangible than memories to bind us Together and to keep vivid in our minds Tower Hill and what it has meant to us. lt is easy to remember Tower Hill as an institution, but there are times when the small incidents-those that have made Tower Hill for us-grow too numerous to recall. There are events like Field Day, the excitement of the annual operetta, the confusion of Saturday morn- ing Dial meetings, and the traditional Tower Hill Friends rivalry that have characterized this part of our lives. Now after these years of high school, we have ended the first im- portant chapter of our lives and are prepared to begin another. This new chapter will be different from the first in which we were a closely-woven group, because now each of us must follow his chosen way. Our paths will carry us to many different colleges for more ad- vanced learning, and then out into a world of crisis and indecision. All of our futures are wrought with uncertainty, but we shall always depend on the priceless gift given to us by the faculty and adminis- tration of this school. The purpose of our EVERGREEN, then, is to provide each of us with an authentic account of Tower Hill as we know it now, no matter where the future may take us or what it may have in store for us. 1ZW To Mr. Rust. . . teacher, advisor, and friend, we, the Sen- iors, dedicate our EVERGREEN. Although his unending efforts on our behalf in the production of this book and his tireless and invaluable assistance with our Junior Prom will always be remembered, his sym- pathetic companionship and selfless de- votion to our problems-great or small- have made our Senior year not only a memory of our past, but a treasure to be carried into our futures. me c,iwsf.iQ,5l" Seated, left to right: Mr. John K.

We hope and believe you are ready and well-prepared. In order that you may take full advantage of all that potentially lies in store for you, I would speed you on your way with the memorable words of William DeWitt Hyde, the former great president of Bowdoin, on the purpose of a college education : "To be at home in all lands and ages, to count nature a familiar acquaintance and art an intimte friend, to gain a standard for the appreciation of other mens work and the criticism of your own, to carry the keys of the world's library in your pocket, and feel its resources behind you in whatever task you undertake, to make hosts of friends among the men of your own age who are to be leaders in all walks of life, to lose yourself in generous enthusiasms and cooperate with others for common ends, to learn manners from students who are gentlemen and form char acter under professors who are Christians-this is the offer of college for four of the best years of your life."

In the fall of I942 an influx of wild humanity descended upon the tranquil halls of Tower Hill School, whose scholarly precincts were still to be haunted by ten of this group thirteen years later. In the years to come who would ever have con- ceived of BILLY'S erudite discrimination between automobile engines, CAROL'S and BROOKE'S Cum Laude potentiality, or DEAYNE'S possibility as a successor to Eddie Arcaro. TUSS, of course, was destined to become Harvard's answer to Einstein, and DAVID was fated to wrest the easel from that sadistic artist of the macabre, Charles Ad- dams. DOLLY and SUSAN, who were promising and unpredictable at five, have only grown more so through the years. Overwhelmed by this tremendous mass of ability and instability, ROB- BIE and LINDSEY decided to run out the back door while the going was good-only to return to the irresistible fold in the ensuing years. Along with siestas, tortillas, and Aztec sacrifices in the third grade came DIANA and DEBBY, who quick- mimm ly put their classmates to shame with their learned diagnosis on the theories of long division. A comparative study of Medieval European Culture was accompanied by the eminent RICHARD LOV- ING in the fourth grade, and in the following year Miss Cannon was faced with the cherubic features and red hair of Miss CHARLOTTE RODE. The raucous rabble had now grown to formidable dimensions, bewildering the sixth grade's new member, MARY MIKE, but she adapted herself to this wild and unbridled environment all too soon and participated fully in the class' various escapades. In the seventh grade the ranks were joined by ANN DAVISON, who arrived iust in time to help rebuild Pooh Store, which had burned to the ground after the first day under its new management. In customary tradition the class presented its annual Christmas play, which, as usual, was written only two days before pres- entation. With the advent of Easter the mercenary group, crazed with the ever-mounting profits from Pooh Store, settled down to create more unusual and outlandish Easter eggs to pad their little piggy bank to its fullest extent. Upon our ostentatious arrival in the Upper School in the following year our repertoire was broadened by General Science, Latin, and ROCK, who was destined to lead us in our final year behind the ivy-clad walls. Midway through the year MARY, hearing about all the fun our class was having, left A.I. duPont and ioined the class to help us plan our spring dance. DON, TOMMY, and MAC entered the class in the ninth grade, little suspecting how much value their leadership qualities would have in the years to come. The greatest influx came in the next year when GAIL, GENlE, RICH, JUDY, DENNIS, and BILL ioined the class. It was fortunate that their arrival coincided with such an important year, for it was at this time that the class undertook its money-mad campaigns. The notorious, from lah all viewpoints, Valentine Dance and the fights for concessions at ball games will not soon be forgotten by any of us. As the eleventh grade began, we still were in need of adequate finances for our Junior Prom, so with NANCY, JOAN, and BILL PORTER, our most recent arrivals, to help us, we sponsored the annual Halloween Dance. That December the class took a trip to New York, where all sorts of strange events took place. ln June came the crowning event of our years at Tower Hill-our Junior Prom. Then our Senior year finally began, bringing us KURT, our ex- change student from Germany, and our beautiful new Senior Room with all its privileges. Aside from maintaining the responsibilities of Seniors, the class busied itself with the Dial, Evergreen, College Boards, and getting into college. Some- how we found time to go to Washington, where fun was had by all. So ended our Senior year packed with the memories of all our fun and adventure, and with it goes our hope that we have measured up to everyone's expectations. 'Mem Kneeling, left to right: G.

LORRAINE CHADEAYNE APPLETON lf anyone ever needs any props from the country, then the person to get what you need is none other than Deayne. To say that she merely lives in the country is doing a rash iniustice to the word country, for she really lives miles from nowhere, somewhere in the vicinity of Chadds Ford. Since there are not too many souls who have pioneered to this particular wilderness, Deayne amuses her- self by going horseback riding and hunting-in which she is extremely proficient. Somehow, between commuting to Tower Hill and caring for four horses, Deayne finds time to partake in many local horse shows, where she usually hauls in most of the winning ribbons. In school she is very quiet, but then, that is only because she is either dream- ing of Andover or listening to all that goes on around her. Sometimes, at the most unexpected occasions, Deayne will pop up with a remark that will set the class off in a round of hysterical laughter. Aside from being extremely artistic, Deayne has excelled in every phase of athletics at Tower Hill. No one will ever forget the extra goal or foul shot that won the game. No matter where she may go, Deayne will have no trouble in making a place for herself. 5 gf..

I I MARY CARLTON ATKINSON If you ever want to know how to bid a hand of bridge, then the person to consult is none other than the Senior class's answer to Charles Goren, Mary. Her bridge knowl- edge has caused her many times to shriek in exasperation, upon discovering that her partner doesn't even suspect what her bidding means. Mary is equally famous for her numerous multi-colored crinolines, which she wears almost constantly. Questioned as to their effectiveness, Mary blithely replies that she iust puts them on out of habit-nothing else. She is also noted for her knee socks which never come to her knees and which she wears everywhere-even on dates. lf not in the Senior Room doing last minute cramming for some test, Mary might possibly be discovered arranging one of the fabulous pep rallies, for which she has become renowned. In her spare time she can usually be found riding around in a green '54 Oldsmobile, accompanied by one of our rivals from the other side of the Brandywine. Mary, al- though famous for many other things, excels in tennis. On any balmy Spring week-end, she can be found batting a tennis ball around. No matter where Mary may go, she will have no trouble in instantly making many friends, for her friendliness and good nature are hard to resist. DENNIS GERARD BERCHET That fellow out there on the football field with his arm raised high over his head, looking forever like the Statue of What's the Use, and screaming at the top of his lungs, "Hud- dle it up, gang, huddle it up!", is none other than Dennis Berchet, who plugs up the middle of the Tower Hill forward wall. After every play Dennis takes this position and vibrates his vocal cords to the limit of their elasticity in an effort to organize his team into a huddle for the next play. Although football is undoubtedly his strongest sport, Dennis has also earned a letter in baseball, roaming the outfield in the Spring. Another of his interests, besides the Junior Room, is Dramatics. Donning a little brown derby and silk spats, Den- nis played the part of Sir Francis Chesney in the fall produc- tion of "Charlie's Aunt." Somewhat of a stranger to Senior Room society CDennis spends a good bit of the day with his little companion at the other end of the hall in the somewhat over-emphasized Junior Roomj he manages to sneak in for a few hands of bridge and a chance to uphold his strong theory that, contrary to Goren, one should always pass with a point-count of sixteen. To whichever college Dennis takes that iolly smile of his, we all know that if he keeps up the good record there that he has built up here, his future will be filled with opportunity.

ELIZABETH BROOKE BRYAN It you happen to be walking by the Gym someday, and your ears are suddenly split by a deafening roar, don't be alarmed, tor it is only Brooke either starting her '41 black Chevrolet or greeting the passersby with a blast of her horn. The resulting noise is much like that which can be heard on Market Street around tive o'clock. If not lead- ing a cheer at some athletic event or captaining the Hockey team to a victory, Brooke might be found in the Senior Room inquiring it there's anyone who wants to make a fourth for bridge. Last year most of Brooke's time was spent with the Social Service Committee. As its chairman, she did an excellent iob of keeping the books in order and ex- tracting the pledge money from everyone. Somehow she found time to be Headliner of the Dial, but this proved somewhat of a headache, when people wouIdn't believe that a twenty-tive space headline couldn't possibly be squeezed into an eighteen space line. Brooke, as Sports Editor of the Evergreen, consulted members of the various athletic teams about the outstanding sports events of the year and compiled them for this book. So, with her fine record here, we know that whichever college Brooke at- tends next year, Tower Hill will be well represented. LINDSEY ANN CAIRNS Upon walking into the Senior Room one might possibly find Lindsey huddled in a corner, directing her mind deep into the realms of trigonometry, for she is the sole female member of this advanced course. Although she is well-qual- a fine mechanical mind, ified for Senior Math., having she is unquestionably the least enviable girl in the class. When long socks came into vogue, Lindsey was quick to take them up and since then has not abandoned them, modeling every color available. To date no one has discerned a reason for her affinity for them unless it is to keep her from catching cold or lust to go along with her long hair. Lindsey has withstood the trials of changing hair styles and remained true to the adage that men, particularly Hockessin men, prefer girls with long hair. ln spite of her taciturnity Lindsey makes a very good leader in the field of athletics, as she demonstrated this fall in hockey. Although unable to participate due to an iniury, she was a fine captain and gave the J.V. team much needed support. Whichever college Lindsey attends she will have a fine record to look back on, based on her achievements here at Tower Hill. FAVORITE EXPRESSION: "SChunk!"

She was blessed with the tedious chore of Copy Editor on the Dial That iob entailed wading through unintelligible scrawls and deciphering various attempts at punctuation. This year she was chosen as Photography Manager for the Evergreen. This task in itself is enough to make a person commit sui- cide, but Susan managed to herd all the groups to their appointments with the photographer, schedule all the Seniors for their pictures, and set up the painstaking picture pages. In spite of it all, she emerged with a cheerful grin. Susan is equally famous for some of her extraordinary weekend cos- tumes. Whenever possible she wears bermuda shorts, knee socks, and a wild shirt or sweater with a little wooden angel dangling from the top button, topped off by a hat with a huge feather. The origin of this hat is unknown, but it is rumored that the hat somehow found its way across the Atlantic early in September. One of the things that Susan's classmates will always recall about her is that if she couldn't be found doing one of her numerous chores, she could in- variably be found with Don.

DONALD ALLEN CORKRAN Oh, you say you have something you want done in the best and most efficient way? Well then, the man for the iob is none other than "Corkie"-our class president tor two years and now president of the Student Council. Since entering our ranks, Don has made many outstanding con- tributions to our class and established himself as an ex- tremely capable leader. Had it not been for his excellent guidance and planning it is not likely that our Junior Prom would have ever come off. He has contributed much of his writing talent to both the Dial and the Evergreen, the latter in which he has particularly excelled, for his brand of humor may be found in a large number of the articles. ln his spare time, if he has any, he can be found at IIO6 Blackshire Road or else at home tinkering with his favorite ' 'Q hobby-model trains. When we, in the future, see a poster of Don-model of posture perfection-leaning back in a chair, one foot on his desk, a pencil behind his ear, and his shirt sleeves rolled up, no one will be surprised, for that is the position in which he may usually be found around school.

Because she has to commute each day from Salem, New Jersey, Ann is usually anywhere from seven to ten minutes late. Just as the pro- gram is drawing to a close, the door silently opens, and Ann creeps stealthily into the auditorium. In all her spare time Cas a Senior she doesn't have muchj look out, for Ann will be making a wild dash for her private property in the Senior Room, the comfortable red leather chair. Dur- ' ing her Senior year, Ann, as a co-chairman of the Social Service Committee, can regularly be heard making a plea in assembly for everyone to please turn in their pledge cards. As a member of the Varsity Hockey team for four years, she did an excellent iob, as goalie, of keeping out many potential scores. On the week ends, when not labor- ing on her homework, Annie can usually be seen driving hurriedly down to St. Andrews where it is rumored that she has found a very attractive young man. The class will always be grateful for the many contributions that Ann has made. JUDITH HARPER EASTBURN Early every morning the quiet and sombre atmosphere of the Senior Room is broken by Judy as she bursts gaily through the door, punctuating her usually cheerful greeting with a characteristic chuckle. Beastburn, as we have aptly nicknamed her, with her effervescence and her lively sense of humor soon peps everyone up and makes them forget their troubles. Without Judy many of the hours in the Senior Room would be extremely dull. In the midst of a bridge game or a lively chemistry discussion she can be heard mak- ing a witty remark or emitting a raucous laugh. Judy's love of athletics and good sportsmanship have won for her much acclaim from her teammates. For instance, in hockey, al- though she was unwilling to play goalie, she tried the po- sition and did an admirable iob. "Beast's" favorite pastime is eating submarine sandwiches. Because of her many fine qualities Judy was fortunate enough to be chosen to partici- pate in the American Field Service plan last summer. The following fall she came back to school, brimming over with delightful facts and anecdotes about her stay in Germany. With her warm and outgoing personality, we can be certain that Judy will have no difficulty making friends wherever she goes. FAVORITE EXPRESSION: "Thought I'd split!"

I ' lt J' GAIL BRADFORD FAIRMAN "Party at Fairman's" has been the cry around school for months, and it is only too true, for Gail is always entertain- ing. Asked whether she wasn't sick of having parties, "Fifi" hastily explained that she loves people and giving parties. Her only complaint was cleaning up, but now she has trained her guests to take dirty glasses as far as the kitchen. lt is even rumored that if parents aren't sure where their off- spring are, they assume that they are "over at Gail's." If not giving a party, Gail might possibly be on her way up to Princeton for a week-end. At school she is renowned as the originator of most of the Senior Room slang, and she con- stantly provokes much convulsive laughter by her original witticisms. Gail also had the extraordinary ability to get good marks on history tests without studying, recently she began studying, however, and was horrified to find that her marks were dropping! "Fifi's" tiny figure enables her to look well in kilts, which she makes and sports for any and all occasions. With her clever and charming personality, no one will be at all surprised to read in the newspapers that Gail Fairman had lust been unanimously chosen the "hostess with the mostes' on the ball."

I I 'va' ri ...jay S 24' F I CRAWFORD HALLOCK GREENEWALT, JR. uf - That fellow so often seen driving a tan Chevvy station wagon with his nose glued to the sun visor over the wind- shield is Tuss, the class intellect. When the Senior Room suddenly becomes the scene of a vociferous pillow fight, Tuss can usually be seen huddled, Indian style, under his private card table deeply engrossed in Virgil's Aeneid. Of course, the reason for this might be the lack of a condi- tioned throwing arm, but a more likely explanation is the fact he is one of the more studious of our number. How- ever, one should not be misled when Tuss is seen browsing through the pages of one of his numerous Latin texts, for he is probably iust getting an idea for a humorous cartoon. He has a well-founded reputation for having the ability to produce, on a moment's notice, a rib-tickler for any occa- sion. Tuss' role as an artist has played an important part in the production of this yearbook. As Art Editor, he has been greatly responsible for the layout and design of our Evergreen. Next year, when Mr. Oviatt is looking for someone with whom to carry on a cultured conversation in English class, and Miss Jones is trying to recruit someone for fifth year Latin, Tuss will be studying Greek and Latin at Harvard. We know he'll have no trouble there, but we wish him the best of luck iust the same. Q -0 J-'Y up 'jjj .. ,J .1 , fi, JK K .J-fly' ,o ,iff V f X J -.X , .1 J . i -fs r I.

This studious individual is none other than Mac Landy, whose scholarly endeavors in Mr. Wild's language class, have evoked the awe and admiration of his fellow students. Somehow or other, however, he does find the time to pursue a hobby of his own, which happens to be the care and culture of geraniums. These rare and exotic plants, it seems, can be bred to all sizes, shapes, and colors. Mac will fully expound in numerous discourses on his latest stud creations, and he will give an informative lecture guar- anteed to grind the ears of his attentive listeners to dimin- utive stumps. Mac has the invaluable quality of good-sports- manship and has taken innumerable razzings from his classmates with a grin and a laugh. Mac is always willing to help in any situation, and this genuine friendliness and helpfulness will take him a long way in life. WILLIS THOMPSON LAWRENCE Upon entering the Senior Room and discovering that there is a heated argument going on, you can be almost positive that one of the contestants is none other than Tommy. Naturally he intends no malice aforethought, but is merely being stimulated by one of these customary word battles. Actually one would never guess that Thompson had such war-like tendencies, for outwardly he appears to be calm and can often be found deep in concentration, com- pletely oblivious of all the noise and confusion around him. An excellent student, he spends much time studying, but in his spare moments, he can be found with Lindsey, arguing about which direction the stripes on regimental ties go. As chief "ad-getter" for the Evergreen, Tommy could be seen downtown on various afternoons, imploring some merchant to help our poor class finance the yearbook. Actu- ally though, he has been much more diplomatic. Last fall the faculty and students alike were shocked to discover that Tommy had decided to grow sideburns. Despite the many snide comments of his friends, he faithfully refrained from shaving off this growth until after the Friends-Tower football game, when he celebrated by removing it. As time goes on, Tommy will undoubtedly be successful in any field of en- deavor, for his ability and faithfulness as a friend can gain him nothing but position and prestige.

EUGENIE HARSHBARGER LEWIS The big black Buick swishes by the front of school and comes to a halt in front of the Trolley stop. Regardless of traffic, the left door opens to reveal Genie, who smiles al- luringly, waves, and trips up the steps for 8:35 Chapel. This pert gal, known for her college scarfs, her pastel sweaters tossed casually over her shoulders, and her soft voice, ioined the class in tenth grade, lending Southern style to our assemblage of Yankees. Her charms were ad- mirably suited for Dramatic work, and she starred in many of Tower Hill's glorious Cand ingloriousD productions. Genie's neat, naive handwriting quickly gained for her the iob of distributing the Dial, and in this field she has displayed re- markable talent in writing out names and addresses, as well as licking two-cent pink stamps and pasting them with care- ful precision in the upper right hand corners. Unfortunately, addictive tendencies have manifested themselves even at Miss Lewis's young and innocent age, for she has repeatedly been observed snatching mysterious tablets from a sinister lavender and red box in the possession of one of her class- mates. lt is with much regret that the familiar figure with the beautiful eyes, black hair, and lavender clothes leaves our number, but we know that the qualities which won her friendship and respect at Tower Hill will not fail her in whatever direction she will go. I RICHARD ALLISON LOVING Bridge expert, rnarkhound, Chevvy enthusiast, golf pro. The person versatile enough to possess this happy combina- tion of talents is, of course, Dick Loving. Dick can usually be found in the Senior Room playing bridge and, with Robbie as his partner, slaughtering any opponent who dares to face this redoubtable combination. However, when the end of the marking period rolls around, Dick's ability as Mr. Mark- hound of 1955 becomes apparent. In studying for a test, he first makes preliminary calculations to figure out to the nearest millionth of a point, just how much studying will produce a ninety, and then he works accordingly. Last fall Dick ioined the ranks of the class's Chevvy enthusiasts, when he became the proud owner of a fire-engine red Chevrolet. This car has entitled him to the dubious honor of being chief taxi driver of the Senior Class. In fact, among the accessories which he has considered buying is a taxi meter. Dick is most renowned, however, for his golfing ability. As soon as Spring rolls around, he can be located somewhere on the links, practicing for some tournament or other in which he is sure to carry off top honors. With such a variety of talents, we maybe sure that Dick will find the doors opened wide for him at whatever college he chooses. FAVORITE EXPRESSION: "Gee, yOu trying to tell me what to do?"

JOAN LOUISE McDOWELL One of the most fortunate events that ever happened to the Class of 1955 was the arrival of Joanie McDowell in the fall of our Junior year, for she has aided us innumerably in our many class undertakings. Because of her writing talent there was much new color added to the pages of activities, which formerly had been cut and dried accounts of each group's ventures. For two years Joan has been a member of the Varsity Hockey team, as well as being a mainstay of the new softball team. She also added her pep- piness to the cheerleading squad and helped plan many of the never-to-be-forgotten pep rallies before the football games. Most of all, Joan's talent has been shown in the field of acting, for in the past two years she has starred in most of Tower Hill's better productions, such as "Tom Saw- yer's Morning" and the famous "Charley's Aunt." As an avid Democrat she is in a definite minority, but this doesn't faze her in the least. It is also rumored that certain Freshmen have been so captivated by her that they have decided to give up hacking and take up dancing instead. As a friend Joanie is tops. In the minds of her classmates there is no doubt that with her brains and good nature she will have no trouble becoming a success, no matter what she does. MARY MICHAEL MILUS "Please remember to bring your pledges in tomorrow." That's the gentle but pleading voice of Mary Mike, the co- Chairman of the Social Service Committee. And she's a good one for the job, too, because she is known for her efficiency in anything from collecting those last few pledges from some Upper School student right down to running errands any time for anyone. If you want a package taken down to the office, M. M. is first to volunteer. She put her efficiency to good use, also, as Business Manager for the Dial last year. Mary Mike's talent for acting was utilized by Mr. Patterson at Christmas time, when she was director of the speaking chorus for the Pageant, and again in the Spring when she was cast in "Which is the Way to Boston." Most American History text books give the title of the "Great Compromiser" to a fellow named Henry Clay, but to the Seniors, Mary takes that title hands down. Back in the Tenth Grade when the class was completely baffled with what design to choose for the class ring, M. M. came up with the solution-a compro- mise! With this talent and along with her many other con- tributions, the class will not soon forget Mary Mike or her willingness to do the iob that no one else could do.

HORACE HUDSON MONTAGUE, JR. Every morning during the school week at precisely 8:35, Rock Montague stationed himself at the Senior Room door and howled in his most persuading tone to break up the bridge game and hurry down to the auditorium. No one ever listened to him, but at least he got satisfaction from those early morning vocal exercises. Of all the members of the class, Rock is undoubtedly the greatest lover of battles. No matter what the topic may be, he can always be counted on to argue long and hard, whether his is right or wrong. De- spite his slightly dogmatic tendencies "Tucker" is well-liked and respected by all his classmates. He is an extremely hard worker, and, long after everyone else had given up trying to solve some problem, Rock would still be persistently in- sisting that there had to be an answer somewhere. As presi- dent of the class, Rock was often to be heard calling Senior meetings to remind everyone that they were expected to be on time to all classes and that the Senior Room was to be kept neat at all times. lt seems that he had special difficulty explaining to some Seniors that even occasional pillow fights were not a part of the school curriculum. As Rock leaves Tower Hill, he will always be remembered for his many friends and his innumerable achievements.

Certainly one of the quietest girls in the class is Dolly: but when she does speak, everyone usually listens attentive- ly, for no doubt she has some very important pearl of wis- dom to impart. "Shortie" is equally famous for her grim determination to learn to speak German, even if it did entail suffering through two years of being the only girl in the class. She even maintains that such a situation has its ad- vantages. ln some of her more verbose moments, Dolly might possibly be heard bawling out one of her classmates in mock seriousness. Naturally she doesn't mean a word for there are few people as easy to get along with as Dolly is. Stashed away in her pretty head is an amazing brain, to be found working constantly, for she is one of the few Seniors to be carrying five maior subjects in her last year. As copy-editor of the Evergreen "Shortie" has had a tremen- dous iob, plowing through the many articles, and searching for grammar and spelling mistakes. Armed with Roget's Thesaurus, a dictionary, and numerous pencils, she faces this task with typical good humor. No matter what the future has in store for her, Dolly will be sure to tackle the problem with a smile. An-4951-6'-ual'-vt-'f'9f"'V 441449441190 A40 Jug' FAVORITE EXPRESSION: l'm not well!

All off-QU IZ M I WILLIAM HOWARD PORTER, JR. "But I tell you a Chevrolet is much better than a Ford." This debatable phrase can ofttimes be heard coming from the lips of none other than Bill Porter. Bill has owned a vari- ety of cars, but his current creation and the one, by the way, that seems here to stay is a red and white hard-top Chevro- let Bel-Air with a continental kit and dual accessories. He is equally renowned for both his singing and acting ability. Who can ever forget his outstanding performance in Tower HiII's first three-act play, as well as the many others in which he has starred? If, perchance, anyone ever walked past the Senior Room and heard snatches of current hits creeping under the cracks in the door, they would be correct in assum- ing that "Eddie Fisher" Porter was giving forth with another of his popular renditions. Bill's outgoing personality and will- ingness to take a joke have won him many friends in the past two years, for he will go out of his way to do a favor for somebody. If, in the future, we hear that Chevrolet of New- ark, Delaware, has won another award for sales, we can be sure that this feat is due to the efforts of Mr. W. H. Jr. himself. 'IIJ,,:"',-' fy: 1, n I' . ",' Jiri' ',': ' A. ...fl NANCY CAROL QUILLEN "Won't you please bring your dollar to a Senior for your down payment on the Evergreen" is the plea that can usually be heard coming from Nancy. As Circulation Manager of the Evergreen she used her super-salesmanship to persuade the underclassmen that the 1955 Evergreen is the best possible investment for their money. Nancy was also co- chairman of the Chapel and Assembly Committee. In this capacity she was often seen leading Chapel services and imploring the Seniors not to talk or study in assemblies. Also she found time to participate in many other extra-cur- ricular activities around school, especially Chorus where she not only contributed her talents as an accompanist but also as a prima donna, singing the romantic lead in the year's operetta. Nancy has an equally outstanding record in ath- letics, for she has been on both Varsity Hockey and Varsity Basketball for the two years that she has been at Tower Hill. She established for herself in Hockey the reputation of being "T. H.'s dangerous shooting Center Halfback." With Nancy's ability to make friends and understand people, she should have no trouble in gaining outstanding success in her chosen fields of Nursing or Physical Therapy.

MARY ALICE RICHARDS lf perchance you happen to be passing by the Girls' Locker room and hear a strange cry, don't be alarmed, for it is probably just Rich practicing up on her monster yell, which is guaranteed to pierce anyone's ear drums. Accom- panied by Debby, Rich harmonizes with screeches-the likes of which no one else can equal. These fits of yelling only come on rare occasions, for most of the time she is quiet and lady-like, but when the mood hits her, she can be a first-class hacker-equal to no one. Rich also has saved many girls in our class a lot of money, for she has made a name for herself as the class hairdresser. When winter's wailing winds have ceased to blow, Rich can usually be seen packing her clothes in preparation for a weekend stay at Ocean City. As soon as school is over in June, she again departs for an entire summer on the New Jersey shore. Aside from all her other various qualities, Rich will probably be most remembered to us for her exotic taste in clothes. Her favorite color is olive green, which is the dominant color in her wardrobe. ROBERT HENRY RICHARDS, III That tall, slender fellow with the little bow tie that's never straight is none other than Robbie, who can often be found at the card table, trotting out a hand. When not playing cards, he can be found arguing some poor teacher blue in the face. For instance in American History, he insisted right up until final examinations that the Whigs certainly must have worn wigs. Rob takes great delight in displaying his sense of humor by dropping a witticism at every avail- able turn in the road. He takes great pleasure in throwing at all his classmates unusual insults, for which he actually has no basis, but these iokes afford everyone, including the victim, much uproarious laughter. He has a firmly imbedded hate for Chevrolets, especially gray ones, but he can occa- sionally be seen sporting one when he can't wrangle his famiIy's powerful green Buick with the spotlight. In keeping with his tendency to do the unusual, Robbie went out for football, but he was doomed from the start, since he could not see beyond the line of scrimmage without his bifocals with the milk bottle lenses. In the future, when we hear about a Senator from Delaware who has made the dignified Senators roar with laughter at one of his cynical iokes, we will know that it is none other than Robbie, cynic and iokester, par excellence.

' I I ll, l CHARLOTTE ANN RODE Nowhere can anyone be found who has a more profound love for red than Charlotte has. This affinity is strongly in evidence both in her wardrobe and under her hat. Unlike the typical redhead, Charie is even-tempered and very easy to get along with. For many years, much to her disgust, she was the shortest in her class, until one day someone even smaller than Char ioined our class, thus relieving her of her position as first in the Field Day line-up. In spite of her ex- treme shortness she has excelled in both hockey and bas- ketball for the past few years. With her fine leadership qualities she has captained the basketball team for two years in a row. Char always keeps the Senior Room in good spirits with her many characterizations of various teachers around school, an art in which she is exceptionally talented. Her explanation of different chemical theories would cause most scientists to turn over in their graves: but to her classmates, they are a constant source of entertainment. No matter where our redheaded bombshell may go, she will have no trouble making a place for herself and making many friends. DEBORAH JANE THEISEN If you ever turn on your Television set and see someone demonstrating a new version of the iitterbug, you can be pretty sure that it is none other than D. J. proving that she can do the dirty boogie. This summer at Hockey Camp she picked up a new-style step and mastered it perfectly, much to the envy of most of Tower HilI's ardent dance fans. If not demonstrating her versatility and prowess on the dance floor, Debby might possibly be found leading cheers at an athletic event, or else whipping around town in the Theisen's Cadillac, filled with squalling girls. Debby like- wise is known for her famous monster yell as well as being the co-creator of some of the latest fashions of dress cur- rently featured in the halls of Tower Hill. We will long re- member that many of the social highlights of our recent years have taken place in the Theisen's beautiful game room. None of our class will be the least bit surprised to hear in the near future that Debby has iust won another world ten- nis championship, for it is fully expected that she will be entered in the Ladies Singles at Wimbleton any day now.

CHARLES WILLIAM TULLOCH If you've ever come to the Senior Room cluring a free pe- riod, then you've no doubt seen Bill playing doorman. The simple explanation for this is that he's awaiting a visit from a blonde-and not Marilyn Monroe. Perhaps the thing that is the most characteristic of Bill is his ability when asked a question that he can't answer-to switch the subject tact- fully C?j to that of football. To him this sport is the most wonderful phenomenon invented by man. Bill gets more pleasure from a successful gang tackle than anyone else does from a high test grade. We fully expect to see his name on the All-American lineup in the near future. It seems that he is never too busy to do something nice that will give pleasure to others. In BiIl's spare time he attends meetings-religious, safety, or otherwise where he can find meat for the discussions from which he gets so much pleasure. One thing that will always be associated with him is his terrific lung power which is used to best advantage on the football field. As we recall our Senior year, we can't help but remember Bill for his friendly salute and advice to each of us. KURT RUDOLPH WANKE For anyone who gets a kick out of seeing a tall, lanky figure riding a bicycle, Kurt's his man. He is our American Field Service representative from Wurzburg, Germany. Not only is he the tallest member of our class, but he's the champion bicycle rider besides. If you weren't aware of this pet like, lust go out to the Kennett Pike about 8:15 some morning and, sure enough, right in the midst of the office traffic, Kurt comes peddling along on his way to school. Coming from Germany, he wasn't too familiar with the game of bridge, which is the most popular indoor pastime in the Senior Room, but don't think for a minute that he has been left out. You see, Kurt is responsible for the introduction of a game called "Crazy Eight" into Senior Room society. When everyone else is busily cramming for that history test next period, Kurt can invariably be heard to ask, "Anyone for 'Crazy Eight?"' And when a card table finally gives way under the strain, Kurt is our repair man. He takes the ruins ,down to the shop and in a couple of days the table comes back iust as sturdy and shiny as new. In one sense, though, Kurt-is iust like any tourist. He loves to take pictures. And from what we've seen of his collection, he'll undoubtedly have to leave some of his baggage here in the United States, when he goes home next summer, in order to get all of his photographs on the ship.

Never long in one place, Diana always seems to have something to hustle about. In her spare moments she is often seen driving around in a black Chevy or in the Senior Room trying to carry on a conversation with several people at once, while warding off pillows at the same time. As a matter of fact, it is very probable that the only rest afforded her during the day is when she is buried under an avalanche of bombarding pillows and books. Noted for her effortless bull-slinging Cshe is a full-fledged member of Mr. Oviatt's S.O.S.j, Diana can always be counted on to write a paragraph or an article for the Dial or the Evergreen. Diana has been a wonderful hostess to various class com- mittees, including the Evergreen staff which congregated at 3210 Swarthmore Road the Sunday before each deadline in an effort to get this book to press on time. Now, as Gradua- tion Day rapidly approaches, we all think of the debt we owe Diana for having consistently offered that badly needed witticism to lift us up out of the dumps. The past few years have had a decided effect on most of us, but as we say "Goodbye" to Diana, we see that she's still iust our "Chop- pers"-and still wondering why she can't go to Princeton. DAVID BOARDMAN WARREN "Oh, what an unattractive dress you have on today and what a hideous color combination. ln fact, you look pretty terrible." This remark, followed by a cheery grin, can be said only by David, who never intends any malice afore- thought. He is best known for his hilarious iokes, which can and usually do contain some mildly risque double meaning. There is no one who complains more about doing a iob and the lack of time to do it, but you can always depend upon David to get the iob done in time and in the most efficient way possible. Aside from his numerous academic achievements, he somehow finds the time to take on a lead in the annual operetta, where he outdoes himself in both singing and comedy. Also, if anyone should happen to leaf through any of his books, either Latin or French, they would be greeted by an amazing array of creatures, faintly feminine, who are sketched around the margins of the pages. His cheery smile will always be remembered by all of us, and wherever he goes to college, David is sure to increase his long list of friends, and to have fun doing it.

WILLIAM EDGE WEISBROD "There will be an Evergreen Staff meeting at lunch today." That's one of the favorite eiaculations of Billy, the Editor-in- Chief of our Evergreen. Yes, it was chiefly due to his cap- able efforts that this classic ever got to press. With his soul torn to shreds by the troubles which confronted him, Bill ran the Staff meetings with an iron hand and solved problem after problem which had proven too difficult for anyone else on the staff. Of course, to us, the name Billy Weisbrod is synonymous with the Ford Motor Company, for there is no one at Tower Hill who can tell you as much about Fords, or any other kind of car for that matter, as Billy. If you want to know whether triple or dual exhausts would be better for your express wagon, iust ask Billy. Or maybe you want to know just how many left-handed drivers, who had a one and seven-eighths ii.ch nose and wore glasses, bought Ford's three-door model in l937. He can tell you that, too. Getting away from the automotive side of Billy, we see that he was a pretty fair football player, too, landing a second team berth on the All-State team last fall. Saying "So long" to Billy, we will have to send a wish along to his classmates in college that they have better luck in getting a glimpse of "lust plain Bill" in a pair of Bermuda shorts or in hearing his golden- throat tone, voicing a Chapel hymn. CAROL CROCKER WILLIAMS At 8:25 A.M. every morning a blue-coated figure, topped off by a yellow plaid scarf-and laden with piles of books, yanks open the Senior Room door and greets the assembled mass with a muffled "Good morning, people." It is a mys- tery to us all how Carol manages to be so cheerful when she has so much work to do. Aside from all her outstand- ing academic achievements, such as the High Honor Roll and Cum Laude in the Junior year, "Baroli," as she was nicknamed by Tuss, somehow finds the time to be Editor of the Dial, as well as Managing Editor of the Evergreen. The reason that she holds such important posts is self- evident-there is no one else among the Seniors who is quite as capable. In spite of the excess of work that Carol has, she is never too busy to help some struggling fourth year French student with a translation or to go over for the third time the reason why the Sports page of the Dial cannot be filled solely with football articles. Wherever her future will take her, we are sure that this distinguished class- mate whose startling resemblance to ex-Queen Narriman of Egypt has provoked uproarious laughs from the Seniors, will find a warm welcome from her associates and the doors of success thrown wide to her in any field of endeavor.

Rock Montague bestows his calm, quiet voice upon Mr. Hartmann. Dolly Ott auctions her vol-uminous notes to the highest bidder. Bill Porter leaves his duals to John Plant. Nancy Quillen wills her changing hair styles to the Lewis twins. Mary Richards imparts her crinolines to Ann Lunger. Bobbie Richards assigns his football uniform to Bob Johnson. Charlotte Rode leaves her height to Bev Wellford. Debby Theisen wills her kilt back to the Scotch. Bill Tulloch leaves for obvious reasons. Kurt Wanke donates his bicycle to any Ninth Grader who can't drive. Diana Wardenburg returns her bullslinging ability to Mr. Oviatt. David Warren bequeaths his "double entendres" to Lotus-Blossom. Bill Weisbrod imparts his number "l7" football iersey to Johnny Pier- son. Carol Williams donates her Cum Laude key to Bill Mosbrook. The Seniors hand over the recently renovated pillows to the Juniors and the lock on the Senior Room door to Jimmy Lee. To Mr. Rust goes the noise accumulated throughout the year and finally, with best wishes, we bestow the class meetings upon Mr. Hartmann. X , A x fbi l,y,llllMl.'y ' , , ,f,t ' .-,. JU ICR PRO One of the greatest triumphs in our years at Tower Hill occurred back in the Spring of 1954, when we were Juniors. Our main thought, as we settled down to the year's work, was our Junior Prom, so, with this in mind, we met early in November to decide upon a suitable theme. After many heated debates, one was at last chosen, and at subsequent luncheon meetings, thirty names were shuffled to decide the various Prom committees. As the months rolled by, each committee organized its plans so that this Prom would be the biggest and best yet. To dispense with the customary crepe paper ceiling, we devised a sky of strips of blue broadcloth, suspended on wires across the gym ceiling. So, as the end of school drew near, and our plans were taking definite shape, lights for night work and manpower were rushed to the garage, that had been cleaned out and converted into our headquarters, in an effort to complete the work. Four days before the Prom, a crew of boys departed for the countryside to secure several trees of a soon-to-become-extinct species. Meanwhile, several Junior girls, overcoming obstacles such as locked gates and sinister parked cars, were busy obtaining pine boughs. Undaunted by these complications, they com- pleted their iob and met with the boys to compare notes on the evening's activities. . Standing, left to right: C. Williams, R. Thayer, D. Wardenburgf B.

Atkinson, B. Bryan, E. Sanders, M. Evans, C. Rode, D. Appleton, G. Fairman, A. Davison. The next evening, as the shadows lengthened, the doors of the little garage across the street were at last opened and, piece by piece, a beau- tiful southern mansion, the result of three months' effort, emerged, was carried to the gym, and as- sembled. After arranging the flowers the next day and making last minute rearrangements, the class straggled home at six o'clock to get ready for Tuss's dinner party. As we left the Mississippi steamer and walked up the gangplank, we crossed a wharf, complete with cotton bales and minstrel show posters, and came upon the lawn of a huge plantation spread out under a sky of blue and flanked by trees and flowers. Surrounding the porch was a beau- tiful garden with wrought iron furniture. On one side was Rivers Chambers' lively group of mu- sicians and on the other was a small pond full of ferns, with a fountain spouting maiestically in the center. The realistic effect created by this transforma- tion of the gym more than fulfilled our fondest expectations. lt was a scene, not soon to be forgotten. f',,, m l -'hw FORMER MEMBERS OF THE CLASS OF 1955 - i"'iL.o '15 Sin- ' X 182 ,......... ---- , - .. li 4.

J. en ry, Manning, G. Cross, B. Moore, M. H This year's Junior Class came back to school slightly depleted, as they had gained no new members and had lost several of last year's classmates. The class learned, upon arrival at school, that they were to have a room of their own-oh joy! Throughout the year many meetings were held in this room. The first meeting was the election of class officers. Howdy Cross was elected President, Mary Henry, Vice President, Barkie Moore, Secretary, and John Plant, Treasurer. During the first few months of school, the class tried to think of new ways to earn money. The concessions for two football games helped to bring in a little of the green stuff. Then in December the Juniors invaded New York for a weekend. lt is rumored that this excursion will go down as one of the unforgettable events in the class's years at Tower Hill. As Halloween approached, the class got together and put up some excellent decorations for the annual Halloween Dance. The decorations, combined with a good band, made this year's dance the best ever, according to the Class of '56. As soon as mid-years were over, definite plans for the Junior Prom were made. After deciding upon a theme and an orchestra, various committees started work. Although many expected that the Prom this year would never come off, it actually did, and on top of that, it was one of the most successful proms ever given. With the problem of the Junior Prom over, the Juniors are anxiously looking forward to their Senior Year and all its privileges and headaches. ll Q- ' M .M KW N1 + NWHNWM 4 Jw -J Xa S N , fa.. 8 QQ VL Q .yi ,A Q Q ii wif ' Ein: K Tl QA 2 L I M ,W . 952, iw ,we X wwwnvfyafw ' iff :viii H 4 N A' M ' - zfzi' we f fv Q f f,i f5h m 1 L 4' Qs Q ,mf hx .

In keeping with the usual Upper School procedure, we held our class elections. With President Pam LaMotte to lead us in our class adventures and Vice President Ron Maroney to help her, Secretary Barbara Richter to record our activities, and Alice Woodcock as Treasurer to keep our financial situations intact, our class vvas off to a successful start. Margaret Landon, Mike McGrew, Barbara Richter, and Susan Thayer, the new members of the future class of l959, ioined us in time to help formulate the plans for our next five years at Tower Hill. Among our many scholastic feats, we managed to achieve complete mastery of the Ten Commandments and various obsolete vocabulary Words. On the lighter and more humorous side of our year, a fevv of us kept up the eighth grade tradi- tion and spent many hours in Saturday Morning Study Hall, paying for our par- ticipation in various Study Hall eraser fights. With all this questionable talent we have high hopes for a successful year as Freshmen. S N C FU E u'5 O7 Standm Brown. in, E. W Ir E. AC ru CD Q. U7 Bissell, S. S. Dobson, A.

The officers, who were elected by the student body last June to serve for the 1954-55 school year, were Don Corkran, President, Tommy Lawrence, Vice Pres- ident, Joan McDowell, Secretary, and Bob Mos- brook, Treasurer. The first important business which was acted upon by the G.S.O. was the passing of an amendment to the Constitution. This amendment made membership on the various committees voluntary and excluded eighth grade from serv- ing on any of these committees. Another of the lively discussions was the one that pertained to the morning Chapel services. A majority of students agreed that something should be done to improve this service and re- lieve the monotony. As a result, the Chapel and Assembly Committee, together with the Student Council, tried to obtain more interesting speakers and to vary the order of the service. A list of regulations pertaining to the dances held at Tower Hill and Friends, submitted by the ioint Dance Committees of both schools, provided another lengthy debate. Several students ques- tioned the clause which stated that once you leave a dance you may not return. An objection to the Dance Committee's right to make rules without the consent of the student body was expressed by several people. However, it was clearly pointed out that since the school is responsible for the students while they are under its iurisdic- tion, they are indirectly responsible for their ac- tions if they leave a dance and return later. As for the Dance Committee's privileges of making rules for the student body, this right has been granted to them by the Student Council. As the yearbook went to press, the Student Council and the Safety Committee were work- ing on a plan to install a Safe Driver's League at Tower Hill. As the tentative plan stood, any student who is sixteen years of age or who is taking the Drivers Course is eligible for member- ship. The primary purpose of this organization is to promote safety at all times. DANCE COMMITTEE Ably headed by Susan Chase, the Dance Com- mittee can now boast of a codified rule of pro- cedure. This year delegates from Tower Hill and Friends School met to clarify certain rules for those attending school dances. Although causing some controversy in the G.S.O., these guides for behavior were sanctioned by the student body and have proved very helpful. Usually Santa comes in a sleigh, or sometimes even an airplane, however, this year Mr. Claus decided upon a moonbeam as his mode of con- veyance. The Christmas Dance, the Committee's largest undertaking, was an unusual success. How- ard Cook's dance music and iazz concert were, as usual, enioyed by all. There was the not un- common last minute scramble for greens and trees, and great confusion concerning the ceiling. But somehow a Southern mansion's roof became an ordinary housetop awaiting Santa's call. De- spite an eleventh hour theme conversion, the decorations were ready by nine o'clock, and the ball was a happy occasion. Under the bull whip wielded by Susan Chase, Mike Ford succeeded in obtaining Howard Cook's orchestra, the bait that lured the people to whom Carol Williams dutifully inscribed invitations. This was not the first time that Rock Montague and Mac Landy have contributed to the success with their lighting technique. Barkie Moore and Deayne Appleton lent their talents in supervising decora- tions, while Diana Wardenburg put her able hands into the refreshment department. David Warren and Tuss Greenewalt produced excellent posters, while Debby Theisen and Mary Richards madly stapled programs and glued glitter for a beautiful effect. There were countless others who contributed to the work of the various commit- tees, making the Christmas Dance a memorable occasion for everyone. The Dance Committee authorized several other dances throughout the school year and left next year's Dance Committee with sufficient funds to finance their Christmas Dance. Standing, left to right: J.

Elizabeth Bennethum served as secretary, and Miss Jones and Mr. Algard were the faculty advisors. The committee's biggest project was the Community Fund Drive. Headed by co-chairmen Carol McGrew and Beverly Wellford, the drive was a huge success, with over a thousand dollars collected. This money was distributed among these various organizations: the American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society, the March of Dimes, CARE, the Seeing Eye Dog Foundation, the Foster Parent's Plan, the World Students Service Fund, the Junior Red Cross Enrollment, and the Junior Red Cross Gift Boxes. This year the committee adopted a Greek War Orphan, Angeliki Karambela, under the Foster Parent's Plan. She received gifts and letters throughout the year from students, and in return she wrote many interesting letters describing her way of life. Early in the fall the committee held its annual Shoe Drive for the benefit of chil- dren in rural New Castle County. At Christmas time there came a very successful Orange Day. Under the direction of the committee, bouquets were made from the flowers brought in by the students and given to the women at the Home for Aged Women as Mother's Day gifts. For Memorial Day students also brought in flowers to decorate the soldiers' graves in the Mount Salem Cemetery. The annual Gardenia Day was held, as it is always, on the day of the operetta, March 17th. Throughout the year, the Social Service Committee did many worthwhile proi- ects for the Red Cross. It provided favors, birthday cakes, and cards for each of the twelve children in a cottage at the Governor Bacon Health Center. For Christmas, New Year's Day, St. Patrick's Day, and Easter the committee made fifty candy cups for the Veterans' Administration Hospital. In the Spring, the committee filled Junior Red Cross Gift Boxes. In these ways the Social Service Committee has continued to perform a vital service for both the school and the community.

Absent At the first meeting of the Safety Committee, Mr. Wild, the advisor, said there were two main iobs of the committee for the coming year. These were the lunch line problem and the Civil Defense-Fire Drill problem. The Safety Committee set up a group of four boys to patrol the halls at lunch time, thus keeping the running and pushing down to a minimum. With the help of the committee the lunch line has gone through much faster, and due to the systematic dismissal, all classes except the Juniors and Seniors go down one at a time, reducing waiting time and making it much safer. During the Civil Defense and Fire Drills, the Safety Committee saw to it that traffic went along smoothly, getting the students to their designated places, either in school or out, as quickly as possible. In both cases these iobs were handled well, regardless of the increased enrollment. The committee also tried to help the early morning arrival problem by hav- ing members out on Seventeenth Street to ask the parents to leave children on the school side of the street, so that there would be no danger in having the children cross the street. It also banished all day parking on the school side of Tower Road to facilitate embarking and disembarking Kindergarten children. Another duty assumed by the Safety Committee was hanging up, on all bulle- tin boards, posters pertaining to fire prevention and traffic hazards, in hope that the students would read them and benefit by them. Three members of the committee, Bill Tulloch, Bill Weisbrod, and Dennis Ber- chet, represented Tower Hill at the first Youth Conference on Traffic Safety held at Dover, where many new and helpful suggestions were given by the young drivers of Delaware. Numerous old problems were also discussed and many good ideas were gotten out of the meeting. lt was unanimously voted to con- tinue these conferences every year. All in all the Safety Committee has tried to make the students at Tower Hill both safe and safety-minded, and to make Tower Hill one of the safest schools in Delaware.

CHAPEL AND ASSEMBLY COMMITTEE The Projection Committee, with Mr. Crich- ton as its advisor, has been responsible for the care of all the projection and sound equip- ment in the school. The new equipment, con- sisting of a Bell and Howell projector and four permanent new speakers, has been a great asset to our assemblies. Besides taking care of this equipment, the committee has in- structed its younger members in the opera- tion of the various machines around the school. The Projection Committee has furnished much service to the faculty and students. It has shown motion pictures and slides for assem- blies and has aided the teachers by running movies for their classes. Although this year's committee has been handicapped by not having a projection room in which to store and use their equipment, it has done a splendid job in performing its various duties . The group of students who composed the Chapel and Assembly Committee undertook a two-fold job, for they not only helped to plan the year's assemblies, but they also con- tended with the numerous problems pertain- ing to the chapel service. One of the first problems with which they were confronted was to attempt to create more enthusiasm toward chapel through a variety of programs. Ministers, parents, and teachers were among the outstanding speakers. To vary the order of the service a little, movies on the "This Is Your Life" series were shown, and chapel hymn sings were presented. From the large selection given them for as- sembly programs, the committee chose pro- grams which they felt best represented the interests of the student body. As a result, many entertaining, informative assemblies have been presented throughout the year. The enthusiasm with which these assemblies have been received is a tribute to the plan- ning and efficiency of the Chapel and Assem- bly Committee. Back row, left to right: K. Wanke, R. Flint, J.

The Committee has performed four functions. It has assisted in arranging exhibits of student art work per- iodically throughout the year, it has set up exhibits and decorations for special occasions such as the Creche at Christmas and other seasonal displays, it has helped plan special loan exhibits in connection with the interests and studies of the various lower school classes, and it has helped to arrange special exhibits for the whole school such as the Book Week display which was set up iointly with the English department. ln doing these jobs the members of the Hall Exhibit Committee have performed an important function in presenting interesting and informative displays of many kinds.

LOST AND FOUND COMMITTEE Left to right: L. Kay, J. Carpenter, Chairman, S. Johnson HALL EXHIBIT COMMITTEE lf, in the course of the year, you have seen several students wandering through the halls loaded down with various and sundry articles, it is undoubtedly a conscientious member of Lost and Found Committee. These articles may range from authentic cap pistols to grimy gym shirts. The Lost and Found Committee collects these odds and ends from the cluttered halls and locker rooms about twice a month. They then display these articles on a table in the hall by the auditorium with the hope that someone will come and claim at least a few obiects. This however, is a rare occurrence. The Lost and Found Committee further at- tempts to return its findings to the rightful owners by sending a representative to some of the Home and School meetings. Here the Com- mittee attempts to get the parents to recognize little Molly's red sweater or Herman's Hopalong Cassidy holster belt. If all attempts fail, the Committee gives the articles which are left over to the Social Service Committee, which disposes of them in appropriate ways. Under the direction of chairman, Gail Fair- man, this year's Lost and Found Committee has done an excellent iob in returning the numerous articles to their rightful owners. l.ef to right: M. Evans, R. Mosbrook, P. Krygier, A. Lunger, L. Richards, Ca. Lewis. DINING HALL COMMITTEE The Athletic Association is composed of the captains of all Varsity sports. Most of the year there were six captains representing four Varsity teams on the committee: Rock Montague and Bill Tulloch, co- captains of football, Brooke Bryan, captain of hockey, Bob Mosbrook, captain of boys' basketball, and Mary Atkinson and Charlotte Rode, co-captains of girls' basketball. Tennis, softball, and baseball captains were not elected until late in the Spring. The first topic for discussion was the problem of keeping the lockerrooms tidy. lt was decided that if messiness continued, more decisive steps would have to be taken. Then followed a discussion on the purpose of and the qualifications for letters. The association agreed that spirit and cooperation, not iust the amount of time played, were important requirements for earning a letter. The next duty was to decide which players were eligible for football and hockey letters. These awards were presented at the athletic banquets at the end of the season. Following basketball season, the committee awarded the basketball letters and before Graduation it presented the letters for the Spring sports. This year the Student Council created a new com- mittee, known as the Dining Hall Committee, with Bob Mosbrook as its chairman and Miss Jones and Mr. Algard as its faculty Advisors. The main purpose of this committee was to supervise the seating ar- rangement during the lunch period and to see that the dining hall was left in order. The latter was ac- complished by designating a few members of the committee to check the tables each day following lunch and to report the numbers of the tables they found to be untidy. The increased enrollment and the problem it brought to the dining hall made the establishment of this committee necessary. The duties it performed had a marked effect on the dining hall, and it greatly contributed in making the lunch hour run more smoothly. However, functioning for the first time, there are still many opportunities for improvement which can be developed by this committee. It is hoped that in future years the Dining Hall Committee will be able to operate as efficiently and play as an important role in school life as do the various other committees.

McGrew Under the capable direction of the Editor-in-Chief, Carol Williams, who was assisted by nine Senior and two Junior staff members, six four-page issues of the Tower Dial were published by the 1954-1955 staff over a space of six marking periods. Splendid coverage of all school events, interesting and enter taining features, and excellent editorials highlighted the issues of this year's Dial Any article concerning the Dial would be incom plete without containing some reference to the meet ings held by the staff on Saturday mornings at the school. Anything could happen at these meetings and usually did! The odor of submarines from "Sophie's was always present, while the hard-working staff attempted to decipher piles of scribbled notes in be tween pillow fights and gulps of cokes. But, despite these minor diversions, the Dial always came out as scheduled. In addition to the usual occurrences, this year's staff was faced with the problem of choosing a new publisher. After receiving price estimates from sev- eral local companies, the editors finally chose the Hambleton Company to print the year's six issues. When the proofs for the first issue came back, the editor was astounded to see that the type face had been completely changed. Upon investigation, how- ever, the staff was so pleased with the new type that they decided to continue using it. Following mid-years the new staff, headed by Editor Carol McGrew, took over for the remaining three issues of the Dial.

The climax of their efforts, however, came in March, when the Chorus presented Gilbert and Sullivan's "Ruddigore." On the evening of March l7th, a continuous swarm of "bad baronets," de- mented maidens, cockney sailors, ghostly ances- tors, and professional bridesmaids cavorted around the village of Redherring and through the ancestral galleries of the Baronets of Ruddigore. Despite the butterflies in everyones' stomachs, both the leads and the chorus agreed afterward that the inane adventures on the Murgatroyd Estate were both entertaining and enjoyable.

DRAMATICS ' "l'm Charley's Aunt from Brazil where the nuts come from." These are the key words from Tower Hill's first three-act play. This was quite an undertaking for Mr. Patterson and his group, ' iii. however, the show came off a smash hit. Many prominent critics gave favorable comment and expressed the opinion that the show should be presented again. This proposal was immediately vetoed by the exhausted cast and director. f ff. lu X In April Mr. Patterson's colleagues settled down , to do a television show over WDEL-TV. The par- ticipants immenseley enioyed their television de- but. Two short one-act plays were given in the Spring to round out the program for the year. Q: l 1?

Although the output of one-act plays was small, the group can be proud of presenting the first three-act play in Tower Hill's history. .W t iuixszk-2 .X ll -"L -fd.-. an , L.

INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC The Instrumental Ensemble provides the sole opportunity for Upper School stu- dents to rehearse and play musical selections. Therefore, most of their time is spent in practicing band parts. For comic relief certain notorious, or more moderately, well-known tunes are thrown in. lt is this "comic relief" that attracts most students to the Ensemble. ln the fall of 1954, the Ensemble presented one of their "comic reliefs" to the student body during the assembly period. The members of the group participated with Middle School band members in playing for football games. This achievement is one of which both the band and ensemble may be proud, for this was the first time Tower Hill has really had a marching band for these games. This landmark in "band history" was climaxed in the friends' game by the formation of both school letters. The Ensemble closed the 1954 season with their participation in the Christmas program. The school year ended with the band and ensemble playing in the Spring Concert. Several familiar selections were played at both occasions. The eminent virtuoso of the musical world, Mr, Carveth, led the Ensemble to its great success. Mr. Carveth was particularly noted' for his selection of music and for his active interest in the group. Almost any day he could be seen at Tower Hill, working tirelessly with his musical groups. Through a combination of in- creasing interest and ability of the members, the instrumental music culture of Tower Hill reached a new peak. ART When school convened last fall, those students who elected art for their ac- tivity were introduced to their new art teacher, Mr. Bocher. A discussion on the definition of art and its purpose was held during the first few meetings. The members were then informed that they would do both community and indi- vidual work throughout the year. Following this, they began oil paintings, water colors, and clay sculptures. A few weeks later, the students were introduced to the art of "accidents." For the uninformed, "accidents" are abstract paintings in which paint is haphazardly slopped on the paper. After the completion of this work, the artists tried to interpret these great "masterpieces," Although these "masterpieces" were quite hard to decipher, the students finally concluded that everyone in the group was insane! After several discussions, Mr. Bocher pointed out that the aim of the group was to develop skills and to express ideas freely. In the individual field of art, obiects were painted in the classic style, and then, from the classical painting, abstract pictures were done. Incidentally, it was discovered that all of the stu- dents were still crazy! For the community proiect, it was decided to help Paint and design the flats and scenery for the production of "Charley's Aunt" and the operetta. At Christ- mas time the art group aided'in the pageant that was given. And now, as the time for commencement nears, the students who have taken art all agree that they have gained much experience and enioyment from this course. - Left to right: R. Ullman, M. Acken, R.

This new restriction, therefore, brought students into the club who were truly interested in scientific experiment- ing. The various proiects throughout the year were: the preparation of acetyl chloride, the dis- section of a pig, with special attention paid to the brain and nervous system, the preparation of media and cultured bacteria, and a Van de Graaf generator used for electrical experiments. These proiects represented nearly every field of science, ranging from bacteriology and biology to chemistry and physics. Many of the students devoted most of their activity period to their Science Fair proiects. The Science Fair this spring was a highly successful show, and it marked a high point in the efforts of the Science Club members. Although this was only the second year of the organization of this activity, the club completed a full program. The Photography Club operated relatively smoothly this year, despite a very small dark room. Nevertheless, by dividing up study halls, each member could have the dark room for two periods a week, During this time they developed, printed, and enlarged their own pictures. Several members of the club had a particular field in which they spent all their time and ef- fort. For instance, one girl confined all of her picture-taking to dogs and horses. Another girl devoted her energies to photomicrography, which consists of taking pictures through a microscope. One boy pointed his camera at the North Star leaving the shutter open for several hours. The result was a series of concentric lines which dem- onstrated the earth's rotation about the axis. The Photography Club has enioyed a success- ful year, and with the hope of a new and im- proved dark room next year, the members ex- pect to increase their activities. SHOP Left to right: C.

In the past two years there have been many additions to the shop, including a drill press, new work benches, a power sander, and many other hand tools. Although the student chooses his proiects, there are certain essential points which he is required to make in order to receive a definite grade. Each student is allowed and encouraged to use any of the power tools he may need. There is strong competition between students on workman- ship, so that there is always an incentive to work harder and to improve one's proiects. Next year there will be a new shop included in the new addition, and the facilities will be even more improved with larger storage space and more working area. Shop, as an extra-curri- cular subiect this year, has been a big success, but next year, with the modern shop contained in the new wing, it should be even more suc- cessful. PROPOSED ADDITIO A new "L" shaped wing, designed to enrich Tower Hill School's program, rather than to provide space for an increased enrollment, is being added to the main building of the school. The construction of this wing, designed by Dolar, Bonner, and Blake, was begun th-is fall by the Haddock Construction Company with the hope that the building would be completed by next September. The new wing will be attached to the present art room and to the exit near Pooh Store. The existing courtyard will remain between the new addition and old building. The new wing is to have two floors, and a playground on top which can be converted into another floor if the need arises. An office for Mrs. Strom, the dietitian, a bigger Pooh Store for the Seventh Grade, and both boys' and girls' lavatories are planned for the ground floor. There will also be a large and a small shop on this floor, so that two classes can operate at once. Another art studio, smaller than the present one, and a classroom for special groups. The first floor will contain two tutoring rooms, three classrooms, both boys' and girls' lavatories, and two music rooms. Since new music rooms are going to be built, the old one will be added to the present auditorium. This addition to the auditorium will have a sloping floor and comfortable chairs like those already in the auditorium. Although we will not be here to use this new building, we have enioyed watch- ing the progress of its construction, and we are sure that it will prove very useful to succeeding classes.

The construction of this wing, designed by Dolar, Bonner, and Blake, was begun th-is fall by the Haddock Construction Company with the hope that the building would be completed by next September. The new wing will be attached to the present art room and to the exit near Pooh Store. The existing courtyard will remain between the new addition and old building. The new wing is to have two floors, and a playground on top which can be converted into another floor it the need arises. An office for Mrs. Strom, the dietitian, a bigger Pooh Store for the Seventh Grade, and both boys' and girls' lavatories are planned for the ground floor. There will also be a large and a small shop on this floor, so that two classes can operate at once. Another art studio, smaller than the present one, and a classroom for special groups. The first floor will contain two tutoring rooms, three classrooms, both boys' and girls' lavatories, and two music rooms. Since new music rooms are going to be built, the old one will be added to the present auditorium. This addition to the auditorium will have a sloping floor and comfortable chairs like those already in the auditorium. Although we will not be here to use this new building, we have enjoyed watch- ing the progress of its construction, and we are sure that it will prove very useful to succeeding classes. i if ? 2i.l.'1 I -- G H, E -'xxx P nwnlf, if " yflmu i I QL! U 'Mull' L THE YEAR 1954-'55 Though our graduation high-lighted this school year, it was a memorable one for us in other re- spects. Things started off with a bang when the Ford-Chevy battle reached greater ferocity with the debut of the Chevrolet V-8. However, despite the raging conflicts on this crucial issue, T.H. stu- dents could usually be found any weekend as- sembled at the Spic, listening to Lee Fisher blaring over the radio, or else taking in the latest in music at a "small" party at Fairman's. This year there were many hit tunes, but "Shake A Hand," "Shake, Rattle, and Roll," and "Earth Angel" seemed always to be on the turntable. Although the weekends were short-lived, the school days provided plenty of activity. The week started out in Monday Chapel with the groggy T.H. student catching a few winks between hymns. However, the Wednesday assemblies took on an entirely different cast. These included hyp- notists, movies, or raucous G.S.O. meetings to keep the students awake. This year the G.S.O. changed the main topic from an honor system to a Safe Driving Club and the problem of how to prevent student vandalism. When bored with these issues, the students were always ready to debate long and loudly over Bermuda shorts, knee socks, dance regulations, or any other equal- ly controversial subject. Oddly enough some memorable events even happened outside the school. Downstate the anti- segregation decision of the Supreme Court came to a head in Milford. In November the elections ended in a Democratic landslide. All through the year, while the French governments rose and fell with the seasons,'the international situation grew more complicated with the threats of the Chinese Reds. On the lighter side, the Giants downed the Indians in four straight games, while at the West- minister Dog Show, for the first time since 1912, a bulldog took top honors. All these events have combined to make the year one to remember, especially to us who will look back on it not only as the year of the Chevy V-8, but also as our last year at Tower Hill. !L'!!0' sgslnltt Lui- it ig U!!!f1llllg in l' .2 f I A W c f' riff '73 ffdf 1 l l,f"f'j' ff' it' .xl vff f ,, X ,9- --' if if yf'lV.fff4if H td ti'l fzf XC ' T- ,, " 7141 CUM LAUDE Q FU.. 3 vu tl E Qi its t y ' , Samuel P.

VARSITY FOOTBALL The 1954 Varsity Football team had one of the most successful seasons in many years, compiling a record of six wins and one loss. According to Mr. Wild, this team has been the best since the undefeated, untied, Unscored upon l'-739 team. Starting out with two weeks of practice before school started, the squad pre- pared for the first game. Under the able leadership of co-captains Bill Tulloch and Rock Montague, the boys developed excellent teamwork and spirit. Early in September Newark CN. JJ Academy traveled down to meet the Tower grid- ders for the first game on the Hiller's field. Despite Tower's efforts, the Newark eleven topped the Hillers, 13-6. A week later, on October 8, the Tower team swung into full gear and over- powered the Hun School team in Princeton, N. J., 26-0. Shortly after the kick-off, Walt Rowland broke away around the end for twenty yards and a touchdown. It was not until the second half that Tower made its remaining three touchdowns. The mighty Tower Hill line proved too much for Baltimore Friends' excellent passer the next week, as the team picked up its second win. By piling up the sea- son's biggest score in the New Castle area, Mr. DeGroat's eleven won a lopsided victory from Baltimore 40-12. Despite many penalties Tower Hill scored four touchdowns in the first half. C After a scoreless third quarter, Tower scored again, and the Hillers led 40-O. Baltimore Tried to come back and scored twice on two fourth period desperation passes to end the game with 12 points to the Hillers' 40. Unfortunately due to the "kind" efforts of Hurricane Hazel, the next game with Germantown Friends was cancelled. This cut the schedule to only seven games instead of the customary eight this season. A powerful St. Andrews team, confident of slaughtering Tower Hill, came north from Middletown for the next game to meet a spirited Tower eleven. In the October 28th Journal Every Evening the Saints' coach, Charles Baum, hinted that the game would be merely a practice for his team. He certainly was surprised, the Tower team, all steamed up from the preceding week's cancellation, bottled up Jim Spangler, the state's leading schoolboy scorer, during the maiority of the game. Sensational running by halfbacks Walt Rowland and Bill Weisbrod con- tributed to the Saints' downfall. The Tower Hill line appeared exceptionally strong on both offense and defense, holding St. Andrews to only four first downs in the whole game. Tower, after missing last season's game, finally got revenge for the 1952, 40-7 loss and beat the Pink Elephants from Middletown, 20-l2. Tower Hill's eleven played probably their finest game the following Friday against New Jersey's schoolboy Ivy League champions, the Delbarton School. The Delbarton team, much feared, had lost only three games in the last four years. After moving down to Delbarton's thirty on a rain soaked, muddy field, Bill Weisbrod scored the first touchdown in the second period to but Tower ahead 6-O. The score remained the same throughout the rest of the second and third quarters with Tower taking the advantage of the poor playing conditions and stopping Delbarton's only scoring threat on the HilIer's ten. The outweighed Tower line blocked a kick which put Tower on their opponents' 12 yard line. From there the Hillers took over and scored their second touchdown of the game to win a hard fought game I3-O. The next Friday, November 13, Tower met rival Sanford Prep at Hockessin. Tower, looking forward to the next Saturday's game with Friends, started early and carried the ball straight down the field for six points. On the following kick-off Sanford returned for a tally to lead 7-6. However, Tower's attack, led by halfbacks Bill Weisbrod and Walt Rowland, piled up a 26-7 lead at the half. With the use of accurate passing the Hiller eleven scored twice more to tally its fifth straight win, 38-7. To the theme of a long column of honking cars, the Tower squad met its arch rival on Saturday, November 20, at Alapocas. Seeking revenge for last year's 12-O defeat, the Hiller's spirit was at its peak. As in many other games Tower led in the middle of the second period I4-O. However, by means of a blocked kick, Friends got back into the game with a seven point score. With two more touch- downs by Bill Weisbrod, who scored twenty-four of Tower's twenty-six points to lead temporarily in the state scoring, the Hiller team led 26-13 when the game ended. The graduating Seniors will always remember this year's wonderful season with the unusual balanced, unbalanced line system, the great team play and spirit, the outstanding 6-l record, and especially the excellent competitive and spirited J.V. teams. The J.V. had a brilliant season, even better than the Varsity, Compiling an ex- cellent 4-O record, the team amassed 108 points while remaining undefeated, un- tied, and unscored upon. ln the first games Tower romped over Friends and St. Andrews. With a hard charging line, scoring two safeties against the Quakers, Tower, led by Castle, McCoy, and Robinson, beat Friends 23-0. Against Sanford, the J.V., with a 65 yard touchdown run by lineman, Gil Yule, slaughtered their opponents 33-O. Standing, left to right: R. Cussler, A. Harvey, P. Milus, S. Hyde, J. Cobb, J.

MIDGET FOOTBALL This year coaches, Mr. Hartmann and Mr. Bal- lard were confronted with a difficult task in building a midget football team, since there were only three holdovers from last year. After much hard work, this year's team produced Richie Cuss- ler, Chris Getman, Sandy Smith, "Tiger" John- stone, Art Vaulk, Rick Wanner, John Armistead, Johnny Pierson, Paul Milus, Hawky Pollard, and Steve Hyde as the usual starting line-up. The first game with A.l. was a tight one, as both teams were scoreless until Tower pushed across a last period touchdown. Next on the sche- dule was Sanford, very determined at the begin- ning of the game, however, the Midgets com- pletely overwhelmed them 27-7. Then came the first Friends game, when Tower was swamped T3-0. The following game against A.l. proved most successful, ending in an T8-7 victory. Then came the final Friends game. Although two of the regulars were missing, and two more were iniured, Tower outplayed Friends. In the last quarter, an intercepted pass led to a Tower touchdown, the extra point was missed, however leaving Friends with a victory of 7-6. Thus the Midgets ended the season with a 3-2 record.

In the opening game of the season with Germantown Friends, the Varsity played a fast, open game, scoring three goals to Germantown's one. The Tatnall team was the next victim, as forwards, Deayne Appleton, Phyllis Coerver, Joan McDowell, Charlotte Rode, and Debbie Theisen, worked together for eight goals to Tatnall's one. In the following game against Conrad, defense players, Brooke Bryan, Margie Filson, Tory Kitchell, Barkie Moore, and Bev Wellford, held Conrad scoreless, while the forwards made eleven goals. Next on the schedule was Friends Select, over whom the team posted a 7-O vic- tory. The last away game of the season was played against Sanford, resulting in the team's fifth victory. At half time the score was l-O in favor of Tower Hill with both teams fighting hard. Tower put in one more goal in the closing min- utes ofthe game, resulting in a final score of 2-O. After a surprise victory in a scrimmage over the Delaware Field Hockey Asso- ciation team, the Varsity prepared for the Friends game. Tension was running high as, up to this point, both teams were undefeated. Although the game was hard fought, Tower did not click and was defeated 2-0. The season's final game with Westtown Friends resulted in a 2-2 tie. SUMMARY OF SCORES Varsity T.H. Opp. J.V. Germantown ....,., 3 I Germantown Tatnall ,........... ........ 8 'l Tatnall .......

MIDGET HOCKEY Although the Midgets' record of two, two, and two, was not the most spectacular of the sea- son, these Seventh and Eighth grade girls, cap- tained by Carroll Morgan, the top scorer, showed a great deal of spirit. The starting line-up consisted of: Helen John- son, Libby Bours, Carroll Morgan, Ann Elliott, Marguaret Thouron, Betsy Candee, Cynthia Bur- dick, Lucy Wise, Pamela Theisen, Wendy Clough, and Martha Collins and Suzy Speakman rotating in the goal cage. Among the substitutes were: Ledyard, Fenton, Gawthrop, Yerkes, Cashman, du- Pont, Rothrock, Wild, Stull, and Trentman. The scores of the games were as follows: Tower 3-Friends 3, Tower 2-Tatnall O, Tower 3 -Tatnall 2, Friends 4-Tower l, Friends 3-Tower O, Tower 0-Sanford O. Not to be forgotten are the Sub-Midgets, made up of Fifth and Sixth graders. Their two games with Tatnall resulted in an undefeated season, the only one Tower girls can boast this year. The coaches are proud of these teams and are eagerly awaiting the day when these Fifth and Sixth grade girls will be romping over Tower Hill's opponents as members of the Tower Hill Varsity Hockey Squad.

VARSITY CHEERLEADERS School spirit has been kept up to par this year through the efforts of the cheerleaders and the newly organized school band. As soon as school recon- vened in September, the six remaining Varsity cheerleaders began strenuous afternoons of practice for those candidates who sought to fill the two vacancies on the squad. After excessive tryouts, Beverley Wellford and Carol McGrew were selected for these positions. Since the Varsity squad was complete, attention was turned to the Junior Varsity cheerleaders. Tryouts resulted in the selection of Nancy Cashman, Betsy Henry, Cynthia and Carolyn Lewis, Stephanie Conklin, and Susan Perry, who were assigned the task of increasing the enthusiasm for J.V. games. To spark the Midget team off to a victorious season, Carroll Morgan, Beverly Wild, Patty Attix, Susie Cashman, and Nan Nichols were chosen as the Midget cheerleaders. The decision to have three groups of cheerleaders was made not only to build up spirit and interest in sports, but also to afford more girls the opportunity of cheering and of gaining experience for the Varsity squad.

BOYS' VARSITY BASKETBALL With only one returning letterman, it looked like a long, hard Winter campaign for the Tower Hill basketball team this year. Opening the season after only a few weeks of practice, the Hillers were badly beaten by a strong Avon Grove team, 54-23. ln the following weeks the Tower team was again dumped, 59-21, by Unionville and was shaded, 55-43, by Archmere. However, with the turn of the new year, the Tower Five broke into the win column as Bill Beck's T9 points spirited the team to an 82-38 upset over St. Peter's. Following Bob Mosbrook's election as captain and a loss to Friends Select, Tower picked up its second win beating St. Andrew's, 56-44. The next week Mr. Wild's team fell behind and was edged by Germantown, 59-55, and was trounced, 85-50, by Sallies. Finally, on January 25, Tower met Friends to end the first half of the basketball season. ln a high-spirited, hard-fought game, Friends managed to win, 44-43, bringing Tower's record to 2 and 7. In February the Hiller basketball team started toward a five hundred record, beating the Hun School and Sanford. Tower then fell before a strong Westtown team but beat St. Andrew's again, Church Farm, and Sanford in succession and needed only to win the last two games to end above the five hundred mark. Never- theless, Unionville returned to beat the Hillers, 47-36, and despite an excellent game by Howdy Cross, Tower Hill was edged by Friends again, 53-50, making T. H.'s record seven wins and ten losses. JUNIOR VARSITY SCORES T.H. OPP. OPP. Avon Grove .... . ....

GIRLS, VARSITY BASKETBALL The Varsity Basketball team, with nine players returning from last year, had a 7-3 record this year, losing only to Friends School twice and Shipley once. Debbie Theisen, high scorer with an average of 14.1 points per game, managed to make twenty points against both St. Elizabeth and Sanford. Deayne Appleton was second high scorer with a total of 8.1 points, however, both Mary Atkinson and Margie Filson had high averages, 8.5 and 8.2 respectively. Nancy Quillen followed with 6.8 points per game. The starting lineup varied with the forwards, but the starting guards were con- sistently Charlotte Rode, Ann Davison, and Barkie Moore, with Lindsey Cairns and Beverley Wellford as subs. Co-captains, Atkinson and Rode, pulled the team through to a winning season during which everyone had lots of fun. The first game of the season was won in Germantown against Germantown Friends, 33-30. Then came successive wins over William Penn at New Castle, 40-22, and Sanford, 48-24. The next week came the first defeat at the hands of Friends, 28-31, followed by wins over St. Elizabeth's, 46-22, and Sanford, 48-28. Christ Our King became the fifth victim, 44-34. The second loss also came against Friends School by a score of 31-33. Westtown was beaten the next week, 46-40. The final game at Shipley resulted in the third loss, 40-41. However, all in all, the season was a big success. JUNIOR VARSITY SCORES OPP. Germantown 12 Sanford ................. William Penn 28 Friends ..... .........

To Jimmy Lee and his maintenance staff, particularly Bill and the cleaning women who have gone out of their way to be of assistance to us, we are especially grateful. We would also like to thank the advertisers for their support, for with- out it, this yearbook would not have been possible. We hope you will re- member their contribution and pat- ronize them.
