As we, the class of 1956, come to the end of our years at Tower
Hill, we realize that we are bringing to a close one of the happiest
periods of our lives.
During this period we have undertaken many things, some of which
have failed. But those which have succeeded, we can never forget-
our Junior Prom, most important of all. This EVERGREEN is perhaps
our largest undertaking, but it is not for us to state whether or not
it will be a success.
Our years at Tower Hill are full of things that we will always re-
member, because they have become such an integral part of our lives.
In the Senior Room we shared many experiences and became fast
friends. After our graduation we will all go our separate ways, but
we will not forget one another.
As we go forward into the future, this yearbook will serve as a
happy reminder of our many years here at Tower Hill.
To Mr. Yule . . .
advisor, teacher, and friend, we dedicate our EVERGREEN. We
can never forget lVlr. Yule's kindness to us when our school
work and other problems were depressing. When we were in
trouble, we knew that he would always be on our side fighting
for us. Those many trips down to his office, when we were at-
tempting to explain a yellow slip or trying to straighten out
some academic problem, made him our staunch friend. His as-
sistance in helping decide on colleges was invaluable, and many
of us would not be entering our chosen colleges if it were not
To you, Mr. Yule, We express our warmest thanks for your
continued interest in us, and as we leave Tower Hill, we hope
to be worthy of your unswerving faith in us.

Oh! Mighty muse who sits on high,
On scholars keeping a weather eye,
Let no inspiration be reserved,
As I pay tribute-Well deserved.
Accolades of praise I mix
For the wonderful class of '56.
When life seems dull and all are bored.
To cheer you up, go see Mike Ford.
Sports is the forte of Barkie Mooreg
She's the player who helps any score.
Gay, glib, gullible Gail,
She'll believe most any tale.
Brains, sports, personality too,
There isn't a thing Mary can't dol
Helpful Betty, she's our gal,
Always there when you need a pal.
Genius with a slide rule and a football starg
One look at his record proves Don will go far.
Next comes Lenna with her brilliant mind,
She's also a flute player-what a findl
Oh! Howdy dear, put down that batg
Liz didnat mean it, we all know that.
So big and friendly is Moose McCoy.
What's not all man is surely boyl
Bevy our belle with golden locks,
Unique Southern ways, and high knee socks.
Weill miss you, Marjorie, and that's a fact.
A host of friends you,ll never lack.
A dark-haired beauty is Michele,
A winsome winner is this belle.
D t Q .E

Blond crew-cut, easy going ways,
Mark out Bill for happy days.
Brother Bob, you are so astuteg
So that's why girls find you cute!
Carol proves that work and spirit
Will solve your problem-so never fear it!
Worry not about Mary Ann,
Sure and sweet, she'll get her man!
Let Leslie loose with a handsome guy,
She'll break his heart without a sigh.
With freckled face and wicked grin
How can Graham help but win?
Hail the leader of the G.S.O.g
Herels a Plant that's sure to growl
Give a cheer and shout hurrayl
For that man of purpose-Robert J.
lVlikell's charm is quiet, sweet,
Tactful, truthful, and discreet.
Sleek, svelte, slender toog
We love Ellie-so would you.
Eccentric taste, arguing whiz:
This could only be our Liz.
Therels Gal Smith of hot-rod fame
Headed for that poker game.
From Luxembourg this gamin hails,
We'll all be sad when home she sails.
Tough and rugged-these twenty-five:
The long pull's over-but welre still alive!
Weive loved the friends, we've loved the fun,
And even some of the work we've done.
We hate to leave, but we won't cry!
Good luck! folks-and a warm good-bye!
ELIZABETH STUART BENNETHUM
When the members of our class heard that a girl
from Tatnall was joining us, needless to say we were
interested in this newcomer. Liz immediately surprised
us with her extensive knowledge on a multitude of sub-
jects. She also put the French classes to shame with her
terrific accent, and then proceeded to monopolize her
classes, talking to the various teachers. Aside from her
other attributes, Liz has an amazing facility of speech,
and she has out-argued and out-talked every member of
the class. Throughout her three years at Tower Hill, Liz
has surprised even the more radical members of our
class with her rather unusual color combinations. She
has especially liked varying shades of green. She was
also one of those brave people who took modern dance
during the winter. We are all certainly glad that Liz left
Tatnall to join our class, an-d We'll all miss her lively
conversing. However, of our whole group, Howdy will
probably be the most crushed when we all part ways.

is one of the hardest woikeis in the class She has that
special quality, that quite a few do not have, of sticking
to a job until it is finished. When Betty is asked to do
something, she never utters a complaint, but goes quietly
about the job until it is done, and done well. Many dull
class periods have been broken up by a joke or well-
timed comment by this senior girl. Unlike most of the
girls, Betty has a large appetite. She is commonly seen
hurrying through her first serving so as to have time
to get a second serving of food. However, she still man-
ages to keep slim. Her ambition is to become a nurse. If
she sticks to this, she will certainly succeed in helping

GEORGE HOWARD CROSS
George Howard Cross, III, commonly known as
Howdy, is the only red-head in the class, and this leads
to a rather unusual temperatment. Only Liz knows the
true Howdy, and she is often seen telling him about his
various good and bad qualities. However, the rest of us
know' him as a boy who succeeds in everything.
Whether in his studies, basketball, or poker, Howdy al-
ways comes through on top. Many a close basketball
game has been pulled out of the fire by those impossible
one-handed jump shots at which he excells. Howdy's one
claim to estheticism lies in his love and knowledge of
jazz, and he is always inviting friends fparticularly
female onesj in to hear his collection. Howdy's good-
hearted ability to give and take has earned him many
friends, and we know that the college which enrolls him
will have an extremely useful addition.

I Perhaps the quletest Senior, and yet the one who
GWQQ uf' knows most about what's going on, is Mike Evans. As
A ML K Mr. Hartmann well knows, Mike is one of those rare
QJ ' . in Y students who never say anything unless they know it's
OC right. None of the Seniors has ever heard her say a mean
x or cruel thing to anyone, and this marvelous trait has
GJJU GJ won her many true friends. Mike is an extremely hard
0 worker on both the DIAL and the yearbook. She has
25' had the dubious pleasure of headlining the many news-
, D' 2359, paper articles. She's also spent many long afternoons
Z3 0 roaming the streets of Wilmington looking for adver-
D B , . . tlsers for the EVERGREEN. Mlke has had none of the
Xyf Ur worry about colleges that the rest of the Seniors have
jj-'VF 1 Gif, had, since she was accepted at Bouve-Boston early in

up will be glad to get up North next year, especially up

rage. No matter how busy she is, Margie will always help
when help is needed, no matter what the job may be.
She displayed her artistic talent at the hockey banquet
and at the numerous dances given throughout the year.
The seniors will never cease wondering how Margie
managed to stay awake during classes despite her usual
three or four hours sleep per night. As captain of the
basketball team, she did much to inspire the new and
inexperienced players, and she never lost her spirit and
fight, no matter how tough the game. Because of her fun-
Ioving nature, lVIargie will probably go down in history
as one of the first real girl Hhackersf'

MICHAEL ALAN FORD
Mike Ford, the boy in the Jimmy Dean jacket, has
long been the class financier. Even back in the Mid-dle
School, he balanced the Pooh Store accounts. As the
yea1'book,s business manager, Michael's gently persua-
sive voice has encouraged many a girl to give up a
shopping tour to do her duty to the class.
Aside from these achievements, Mike's main claim
to fame was the time he almost won the Haon Award at
the prodigious age of twelve. Mike, notoriously color-
blind, was dabbling around in oils one day in Miss
Souther's class. Quick to spot this budding virtuoso,
she had the canvas entered in the contest, where it was
disqualified for the first prize only when the artist's
young age was discovered.
Mike is one of those fortunate people who has the
ability to make others laugh. Many class meetings or
parties have been sent into gales of laughter by one of
Mike's well-timed remarks. We will all miss this jovial
person when we go our separate ways.

Michele is one of the most mysterious and fascinating
seniors, at least from the other seniors' viewpoint. Ever
since she joined our class in eighth grade, Michele has
been noted for her unusual and sometimes decidedly
radical ideas. Early on Tuesday and Thursday morn-
ings, when the other seniors were almost unable to keep
their eyes open, much less sing, Michele's beautiful lilt-
ing voice could be heard through the occasional grunts
around her. This talented and vivacious member of our
class has won many true friends during her years at
Tower Hill, and I know that for many years to come we
will all remember her never-ending good humor. Michele
is an outstanding member of the modern dance group,
and just about the only one who knew what she was
ioing for a long time. Aside from her talent in these
fields, Michele has achieved the highest possible scholas-
:ic honor at Tower Hill, that of becoming a member of
he Cum Laude Society. With all these outstanding quali-
zies, Michele will succeed wherever she may go and in
lnything she may do.

DONALD BURNETT HANSON
That long form habitually seen spread out on the

genius. When Don is not asleep on the couch, he is in
the physics lab, or on the football field leading the
team. Don can sometimes be seen wandering down the
hall with various female members of the upper school
thrown over his shoulder, much to his joy and his
victimls distress. Because he has been at Tower Hill
since sixth grade, Don seems to know everyone who
enters the doors of the school. All of Don's friends can
count on him to willingly do any favor they ask of him.
This big, easy-going member of the Senior Class lives
out in the sticks of Delaware, and can often be seen
speeding in the Kennett Pike at a mere 75 mph. We are

GRAHAM NORRIS LOWDON
We realized that when Graham Lowdon entered our
class in ninth grade, Old Hickoryis loss was definitely
Tower Hill's gain. Behind Grahamis quiet, unassuming
exterior lurks a ready wit and keen intelligence. Gra-
ham's interests vary from sailing to robot making,
and he has contributed greatly to the success of our
EVERGREEN. Wherever there is a piece of news or
an interesting scene, you will find Graham ready with
flashbulb and Brownie to snap the picture. We must not
fail to mention his prowess on the J.V. football team,
where he played end all season. In spite of the fact
that he is proficient in the sciences, his secret vocation
is that of a South American dictator. Judging from his
many positions, requiring diplomatic tact and fast act-
ing, such as President of the Senior Class and manager
of the Varsity Basketball team, we know he will be a
sure thing as Peron's successor.

JOHN DENYS MCCOY

he's often the brunt of Mr. Hartmann's jokes he doesn't
seem to mind and goes right on smiling through thick
and thin. Denys may seem a little lackadaisical during
the mornings, but in the afternoons, he definitely comes
to life. How many times has some football player
thought he could get through a hole, only to be flattened
by-the Moose? Throughout the football season, Denys
could be found either on the Tower Hill football field,
or glued in front of the television Watching the pro
teams play. Wherever he may go after he leaves Tower
Hill, Denys' personality will win him many friends,
and his math ability will make him a success at any

able to create ingenious pep rallies during the year,
and it was her spirit and pep that kept the cheerleaders
doing their best. Carolls main problems were trying to

find just one cheer which would please everyone. Since

MARY LESLIE MAN NING
Leslie came to Tower Hill from Friends in the ninth
grade, and F riends' distress was certainly Tower Hill's
success. Since her arrival, she has been an active mem-
ber of hockey and basketball teams. That poor shivering
form standing in the goal cage trying to ward off the
hockey balls was Leslie, who saved many a game for the
Junior Varsity this year. She also captained the victori-
ous ,Iunior Varsity basketball team. Although she is not
one of the more boisterous seniors, Leslie managed to
add her finishing touch to most of the Senior room
fights. She is definitely older than most of the Seniors,
and she is always willing to give some much needed
advice to a few lonely hearts in the class. Leslie was
always friendly and went out of her way to make every-
one feel at ease when they were with her. She has made
many true friends during her four years at Tower Hill,
and everyone will miss her friendly smile next year.
We know that Mr. Hartmann will also be very sorry to
lose a fellow Democrat!

Who is that poor limp form sitting under a pile of
pillows in a corner of the Senior Room? Probably, and
usually, it is Barbara Moore, alias Barf or Barkie. This
usually quiet member of our class really explodes on a
hockey field and on a basketball court. As captain of
hockey, Barkie inspired the team to victory after victory
this year. Because she had the spirit and will to win
that made her such a good leader, the team felt that
they had let Barkie down by not winning the last game.
For some unknown reason Barbara has developed an
undying love for blue and white scarfs and cute little
bulldogs, much to Mr. Hartmann's disgust. Along with
'her athletic responsibilities, Barkie has had time to hold
down jobs on both the DIAL and the EVERGREEN.
When Barbara returns home from college next year,
none of us will want to miss the chance to see this won-
derful and beloved member of our class.

ROBERT COLBIN MOSBROOK
Bob, the boy with the photographic memory, has the
rather dubitable distinction of being the sole male not

ever, he spends much of his time achieving outstanding
success in his school work. Bolfs main interests are golf,
his summer occupation, basketball, his winter occupa-
tion, and poker, a game at which he plays perpetually
and loses habitually. As captain of the basketball team,
he has faced the ordeal of giving clever pep rally talks
with great suavityg and, incidently, he led the squad
through an excellent season. A rather quiet person, he
seldom partakes in the Senior Room brawls. He prefers
rather to sit quietly in a corner and sleep, or to run down
the hall to the Sophomore Room to hunt up a date for
the following weekend. Bolfs quiet unassuming manner
will make him a great success in any profession that he
WILLIAM MICHAEL MOSBROOK
That rather large pair of feet sticking out from the
red armchair in the Senior Room belongs to the class
comedian, Bill Mosbrook. Bill is noted for numerous
things, mainly his views on girls, homework, religion,
and German. He has an amazing talent for knowing
what you were going to say when you decided not to say
it after all. In Contemporary Civilization, Bill seems to
know all the answers. He knows exactly what he likes
and does not like, and he also lets everyone else know!
Because he always has something nice to say to every-
one, Bill has numerous friends throughout the whole
Upper School, and probably the Middle and Lower
Schools too. Along with two or three other senior boys,
Bill has shown remarkable ability as a cheerleader. He
is also a member of both the basketball and tennis
teams. Bill will be liked and respected wherever he goes
because of his real and genuine love of people.

John Plant, definitely the character of the class, is

life is spent taking apart and putting together the one

Shylock by those who are envious of his money-making
schemes. He runs a commuting system from North Hills
to Tower Hill every day. He spent last summer work-
ing in Diveris Body Shop in the 1060 heat. John has
also been nominated for the Presidency of Alcoholics
Anonymous. He has shown, by his handling of the
G.S.O. meetings, his versatility and many latent talents.
Believing that humor is the best medicine, John will be

Who's that sitting over in the corner carrying on a
serious conversation with some member of the Senior
class? Why, Mary Ann, of course! Despite her short
height, Mary Ann manages to see just about all that is
going on around her, and she is always willing to give
some much needed advice to anyone who.asks for it.
She is one of the few Senior girls who always manages
to be at the games, rooting for the team, and yelling
with the cheerleaders. Mary Ann is so vivacious and
friendly that she has made many true friends during
her four years at Tower Hill. On Monday mornings
she can often be found asleep on the couch after one
of her more strenuous weekends in the northern sections
of our country. When Mary Ann walks through the
doors of college next year, with a grin on her face and
a college scarf around her neck, we know she will be
welcomed with open arms.

CALEB HOWARD SMITH
When we heard that a new boy was entering our class
in-the twelfth grade, we were all very curious, for vary-
ing reasons. Wheri Cal walked in with his liroad smile
and friendly manner, he immediately won many friends.
'Often seen driving around in his red and black Plym-
Outh, Cal never hesitates to give a poor Tower Hiller
a ride. Cal, along with many other senior boys, is often
seen in the Sophomore Room-for the usual reason!
On the more serious side of school life, Cal has excelled
in his school work and was also elected class treasurer.
In the Senior Room Cal is usually rather quiet, but he
does manage to get his word of wisdom into most of the
violent discussions. His latest words of wisdom, which
have passed quickly around the school, are, "Hi,
sweetielv All of us are extremely happy that Cal decided

If we had been able to choose a person from Europe
for our exchange student, we could not have picked a
better girl than Jackie. The first day she joined our
class, she immediately won us all with her sweet and
gentle manners. Jackie quickly picked up our ways, in-
cluding clothes, dancing, and slang expressions. It is
now a common sight to see Jackie, with her pony tail
flying, jitterbugging to some new Rock in' Roll song
she has learned. As clever as she is intelligent, 'Jackie
sews most of her own clothes-much to the envy of the
other senior girls. Aside from her subjects here at Tower
Hill, Jackie has to keep up with her classmates in
Luxembourg. Maybe it was schoolwork in those many
'letters Jackie received daily! We will long remember
Jackie as a wonderful member of our class, and we
wish her great happiness as she returns to her home
across the sea.

GAIL PATRICIA WIIITE
Vivacious Gail White. a delightfully scatter-brained
girl, is particularly renowned for her acute gullibility
and extreme shyness before crowds. A trusting soul, she
is in a state of perpetual shock uhen she finds out that
she is being kidded. As for her rehu-tance to display
her oratorical talent. her speech at the girls, hockey
banquet was a paragon of humility. tart, and gratitude.
She stated, 6'Friends, and llarky too, my motto is to be
calm, cool, and collected, and above all to be brief.
Thank you!" ln spite of all the people who tease he1',
Gail is friendly and cheerful lo everyone, and even
when the boys have scattered her precious poppit pearls
to the four winds, she remains unperturbed. Gailis fav-
orite topics of conversation are her horses and her
brothers Inot necessarily ,in order of importancell
Thanks to her efforts, tl1e'llate marriage of her brother
was second only to that of Prince Ranier and Grace
Kelly in the amount of public-ily received. We know
that as Gail leaves Tower Hill she will realize her secret
ambition: hut if you don't believe us, just ask the man
who lives on the moon of green cheese!

September l3 was the portentous oc-
casion when last year's eighth grade de-
linquents became freshmen. lVlomentarily
subdued, they welcomed into their midst
four new members-Dave Brewster, Ben
Eastburn, Kevin Miller and Steve Plant.
After a lengthy campaign, class officers
were selected: Steve Hyde, President:
Bill Wood, Vice President: Pam La-
lVlotte, Secretaryg and Steve Plant, Treas-
Before deciding on any money-making
enterprises, the class disposed of some
Pooh Store money which we had had
since eighth grade. After much debate,
we finally donated it to the construction
of the bicycle shed near the driveway.
In athletics, the seniors of '59 proved
to be very useful members of the differ-
ent basketball, hockey, and football
ln English we learned the drastic con-
sequences of the comma blunders, and
made our first acquaintance with Will
Shakespeare. Valiantly we attacked those
vicious languages, German and French.
In biology, we peeked into the everyday
life of the placid amoeba. With all our
accumulated knowledge, we cau,t wait
to take our places next year as full-

l,ast fall the spirited eighth graders
returned to old 'l'.H. merrily awaiting the
ycar of work and examinations ahead of
them. Happily and with llIlIt'l1 good will,
we welcomed the newcomers to the class
-Bill Krewatch. Handy johnson, Linda
Cooper, Kathy Kay. and lVlargaret Day.
Soon we congrc-gated in the auditorium to
elect Nanno Carpenter, President, Pete
Draper, Vice President: llelle Carpenter,
Secretary: and Pam Theisen, Treasurer.
We then settled down to a satisfying
year of hackingg until. hy some chance
happening we discovered that we wererft
being invited to all of the upper school
dances, etc. Sporadic outhursts of relmel-
lion in the eighth grade meetings re-
sulted. However, these outhursts, though
sometimes violent, proved futile, and the
eighth grade settled down to their hum-
drum existence again.
The somewhat quieter and wiser eighth
graders then started feverishly preparing
for their operetta which took place in
As school ended, we were all looking

ST DE TCOUNCIL
All Tower Hill students are members of the
General Students Organization. The G.S.O., which
meets monthly, listens to Student Council reports
and recommends measures for the Council to con-
Student Council members. four seniors, four
juniors, two sophomores. two freshmen, and one
eighth grader, met to discuss recommendations
from the C.S.O.. suggestions from the suggestion
box. and any problems given to the Council for
consideration. Measures favored by a majority of
the Council members are presented to lVlr. Stabler.
Thus, final approval or rejection rests with the
The 1955-56 Student Council was headed by
John Plant, with Walt Rowland, Vice Presidentg
Carol lVlcCrew, Secretary, and Bill Beck, Treasurer.
As usual. one of the first jobs of the Council was
the organization of committees.
Throughout the year the Colfncil made several
recommendations. They worked out a plan for the
operation of a Coke machine and presented it to
the administration. The Council also felt that sen-
iors with excellent records should be exempted from
final examinations. As this yearbook went to press.
the administration was considering both the Coke
machine and the senior exemption plans.
ln the fall the Council planned the trip which the
students took to Germantown Friends for the foot-
ball gameg in February it organized the Student
Talent Show. which was presented during an as-
sembly period. The Council tried to make the
monthly G.S.O. meetings more informative and
enjoyable. After the business of one C-.S.0. meeting
was dispensed with, ,lohn Plant showed slides of
the New England flood damage. In another meeting
Captain Hollohan, Captain of Police, spoke to the
student body on juvenile delinquency. The Council
also had Student Council members report the busi-
ness of the previous lVlonday's Student Council
meeting in the Wednesday morning class meeting.
For pleasure and not profit the Student Council
gave a dance on March 17.
The accomplishments of this yearls Student Coun-
cil speak for themselves.
The Council has been one of the most efficient
in Tower Hillis history.
This year the Dance Committee. under the super-
vision of Miss 0'Neill and Nliss Richardson. faculty
advisors. and Barkie Moore and Mike Ford. co-
chairmen. gave two successful and resplendent
dances. The first of the committeeis endeavors was
the informal Fall Frolie held on Novemher 18.
Because of the de-emphasis of the Tower Hill-
Friends rivalry. this dance was held in place of
the annual Victory Dance. which usually follows
the foothall game. ln spite of snow and sleet. the
committee was ahle to decorate the gym. and a
large crowd turned out. The Melody Knights pro-
vided the music.
Next was the Christmas fiance given on Decem-
her l6. The theme was "The Night Before Christ-
mas." Ann Lunger rushed to get the posters made.
while Molly Chase issued invitations to those from
far and near. Leslie Manning collected props from
her decoration committee. and Margie Filson con-
cocted a new and tasty punch for the refreshments.
Howdy Cross hired Don Massey's Orchestra for the
occasion. Carroll Morgan headed the committee
which was responsihle for the programs. Roh John-
son and Craham Lowdon were responsihle for the
lighting effect which appeared the night of the loth.
After a long afternoon of decorating. the hig
night finally arrived. The orchestra was featured
on the left-hand side of the gym, while the "Night
Before Christmas" scene was on the right. The
scene consisted of a fireplace with Santa Claus
coming down the chimney. To the left of the fire-
place was the 'cred leather chair." and to the right
of it. a Christmas tree surrounded hy a raft of
presents. Ahove the fireplace were the following
words: Merry Christmas to all and to all a good-
night. The dance was definitely successful.
The only other Dance Committee activity was
approving dates suhmitted hy the classes. the AA.,
and the Student Council.

SOCIAL SERVICE COMMITTEE
Co-Chairman Beverley Wellford and Lenna Watts
headed the Social Service Committee this year,
with Betsy Hentschel as Secretary. Mrs. Ford and
Mr. Algard were the faculty advisors.
,loan Clough and Judy Hartley, co-chairmen of
the Pledge Drive, collected the money which was
donated to various organizations, such as the March
of Dimes, CARE, the American Heart Association,
the American Cancer Association, the Seeing Eye
Dog Foundation, the Junior Bed Cross Gift Boxes,
and the World Students' Service Fund. The 351,000
goal which the Committee set was surpassed.
Each year the Social Service Committee sponsors
many other drives to help needy organizations. The
first drive this fall was to collect shoes for the chil-
dren in rural New Castle County. Around Christ-
mas, the Committee tried something different. dec-
orating three Christmas trees with oranges, Christ-
mas cards, and playing cards. The oranges which
were collected were sent to the Little Sisters of the
Poor. The Christmas cards were sent to shut-ins
in Wilmington, and the playing cards were sent to
Philadelphia, where they were printed in braille.
On March 22 the annual Gardenia Day was held.
There was a great variety of flowers sold, and the
sale was, as usual, very successful.
.'w-11: 4 mimsmu -.
ln Xlay the students brought in flowers for hoth
Nlothcrs' Day and Memorial Day. On lVlothers' Day.
the flowers were sent to the Home for Aged Women,
and on Memorial Day they were placed on the
soldiersl graves in Mount Salem Cemetery.
Throughout the year mcmhers of thc Committee
made favors and decorated napkins for children in
a cottage at the Governor Bacon Health Center. On
the hirlhday of each child in the cottage. the Com-
mittee sent a cake and some of the decorated favors
and napkins to the cottage. The Committee members

Another project of the Social Service Committee
was sending gifts to Angcliki Klll'illIllll'l2l, the Creek
war orphan, who was adopted last year under thc
Foster Parents, Plan. To express her gratitude for
the many gifts which she received. Angcliki wrote
several interesting letters to the Committee.
The Social Serxicc Committee. one ol the most
important committees in school life. performed a
vital service for hoth the school and the community.

CHAPEL AND ASSEMBLY
The Chapel and Assembly Committee. composed
of eleven students. planned the Tuesday and Thurs-
day Chapel Services and the Monday and Friday
One of the first things which the Committee mem-
bers did this year was to discuss ways to make the
Chapel services more reverent. It was agreed that
the appearance of the auditorium would be changed
in some manner to make the services seem more
like church. Because of the different denominations
present in Tower Hill, the symbol must be universal.
After much thought. they finally decided to make a
large mahogany cross to hang from the ceiling at
the rear of the stage. ln addition to this, two seniors
stood outside the auditorium to remind the students
that it was the day for a chapel service. All these
innovations helped create a more profound feeling
throughout the student body towards the chapel
Ministers. parents. and teachers were among the
outstanding speakers. Since all sophomores, juniors.
and seniors must make a speech in morning assem-
blies. many of the Monday and Friday programs
were filled by student speakers.
Each Wednesday' during third period there was a
forty-minute assembly. In February we were very
fortunate to have the Bennington Madrigal Singers
perform for us. Earlier in the year Captain Hollo-
han of the Wiliiiiligton Police force gave a very
inspiring talk on juvenile delinquency. Coming back
for a repeat performance from two years ago, Miss
Cornelia Stabler entertained us with her mono-
logues. The Howard High School chorus also helped
to make this yearis program an excellent one.
Mr. Brown and Mr. Rust, faculty advisors,
proved invaluable in helping the Committee plan
interesting programs. The enthusiasm which the en-
tire student body showed for the Chapels and As-
semblies was a tribute to the Chapel and Assembly

The Dining Hall Committee. created hy tl1e
Student Council two years ago. had Francis
lleckert as its chairman. aml Mr. Stalmler and
lVlrs. Strom as its faculty aclvisors. The main
task of this committee was to fiml a suitable
seating arrangement for the flining hall.
Although the mixing of classes helped the
olrler sturlents to become better acquainted
with the younger ones and vice versa, sitting
by grades gave inrlivicluals a chance to discuss
school activities, homework, and social life
with their classmates. When a faculty member
sat at each tahle. stuclent-faculty relations
were improved. To satisfy everyone anfl give

and Eleanor Sanders, chairman. Periodically
throughout the year the Committee has as-
sisted in arranging exhibits of student art
work and has set up exhibits and decorations
for special occasions such as the Creche at
Christmas and other seasonal displays.
In doing its several jobs, the Hall Exhibit
Committee has performed an important func-
tion in presenting interesting and informative
displays of many kinds.

This year was one of the most interesting and
active years of the Dramatics group, with the help
and inspiration of Mr. Patterson. Mike Castle,
President of the group, and Beverley Wellford, Sec-
retary, gave Mr. Patterson several constructive sug-
gestions concerning the plays which were given.
The first play, "What a Lifef' was a great suc-
cess. it concerned the life of a typical American
boy, Henry Aldrich, portrayed by Mil-ce Castle. The
other leads were Betsy Henry, Hugh Tulloch, Libby
Stiff, Ann Lunger, Robert Murray, Paul Millus, and
The second dramatic production was the annual
Christmas play which told the story of the birth
of Christ. This year, for the second time, singing
and speaking choruses participated in the presenta-
tion. With the speaking chorus telling the story,
and the singing chorus setting the mood, one could
not help leaving with the true feeling of Christmas.
The lighting, managed by Roger Kinsman, gave the
finishing touches to a truly awe-inspiring pro-
In March the Dramatics group presented a series
of three plays, two of which were directed by mem-
bers of the group. These were "Saved" directed by
Beverly Wellford and s'Too Many Waysf, directed
by Mike Castle. Mr. Pattersonis production, "The
Boor," was presented before the Chorus's "The
Later in the spring "The Purple Door Knobi'
and one other play were given. These provided the
finishing touch to an extremely outstanding year
for those in Dramatics. Everyone was able to con-
tribute something, by acting, making and painting
scenery, prompting, taking charge of the lights. or
contributing props. Thus, everyone was able to
achieve a sense of satisfaction and pleasure from

latter part of 1055. a great deal of work went into
the Christmas rofrani.
With the new year. the chorus was faced with
its largest annual prohlemfthe choice of an oper-
etla. This year. the general feeling of the chorus
was to do something other than Cilhcrt and Sul-
livan: conscqucnltv. they chose "The Lowland
Sea." an AtIlt'l'll'illl Folk Opera hv Alec Vlfilder.
This is the traditional story of a girl. Uorie Davis.
who loves a hov. Johnny Dee. Johnny, however, is
dedicated to the sea. and goes away for two years.
When he is on sick leave in Singapore, his ship
leaves without him. and sinks on the wav home
with all hands lost. Johnny. in the meantime. gets
another ship and returns home. only to find that
Dorie. thinking him dead. has married a local
hachelor. The operetta ends as Johnny is seen
going away forever. Some of the leads were John
Plant. Liz Bennethuin. Larry Beck. Bill Beck, and
three members of the Middle School Chorus. The
whole chorus worked together to make their biggest
undertaking to date a great success.
Following the operetta, the group prepared and
gave its annual Spring Concert. Finally, to end the
school year, the Chorus sang at the Baccalaureate

10-1. Lanie Fairman, Mary Henry, Peggy Moyer, Michele Freed, and Margie John-
son all scored in the game. The next two games With Lancaster Country Day and
Friends Select were won by identical scores, 7-0. The same four forwards combined

Penns C-rove, where in a fairly evenly matched game, they won 3-1. Sanford was
the next team to fall before the Varsity by a score of 4--0. Lanie, Mary, Michele, and
Margie Filson, the other scoring halfback, tallied this time. Conrad was easily
downed by a score of 4--0.
When Tower Hill and Friends met, the usual tension was present. In spite of the
bad weather, both teams played well, and the game ended in a 1-1 tie, with Lanie
Fairman scoring the'only goal for Tower. A rejuvenated Tatnall was the next game.
Both teams were out to win, but Tower Hill proved slightly stronger, winning 2-0.

GIRLS' VARSITY BASKETBALL
The Varsity Basketball team, with only three
players returning from last year's team, ended the
season with a six-loss, five-win record. Margie
Filson was high scorer for the season, with 140
points. She averaged 12.7 points per game. Bev
Wellford, despite the fact that she played only
eight games as forward, was second highest scorer
with 139 points, averaging 17.4 each game.
During the first three games forwards Margie
Filson, Margie Johnson, Mary Henry, and Lanie
Fairman were able to score 147 points, while
guards Bev Wellford, Barkie Moore, Sandy Loving,
Cynthia Lewis, and Sally-McPherson held the
opponents to 86 points. The first game with Friends
School was dropped by five points. During this
game Lanie and Bev were switched.
The team suffered another loss to St. F.lizabeth's
29-34, but rebounded quickly to rack up easy vic-
tories against Christ Our King and Sanford. Then
Lancaster Country Day downed the glifrls 63-62,
followed by losses to Friends and Westtown. The
final game was at Shipley. This game was close,
but it ended on a happy note, for Tower Hill won,
Betty Clark and Eleanor Sanders, co-managers,
did an excellent job keeping all the records straight
and supplying refreshments for the games.
Despite the losing record, the forwards were able
to score 4-81 points, while the guards limited their
opponents to 417 points.
