To the Staff: 

We, the editors of the 1959 CASTELLAN, would like to give our thanks to those 
who have helped to produce our yearbook. Although we have encountered many 
difficulties, it is through your hard work and effort that this yearbook was made 
possible. 

Good luck and best wishes for a great future from your editors ,

TO THE GRADUATES OF 1959 

It has long been our belief at St. Mary's that our students are not preparing 
for living but rather that they are already very much a part of life. We have 
sought first to build a truly stimulating environment and then we have en- 
couraged you to seek as needed the academic and personal guidance provided 
within this educational community. 

Let up hope that your experiences here, the decisions made in encountering 
them, and your subsequent evaluation of the tightness or wrongness of your de- 
cisions may have helped you to develop a firm and understanding basis for 
meeting future problems in living. 

Throughout your lifetime may each of you have in some reasonable degree 
"the Serenity to accept the things you cannot change, the Courage to change 
the things you can and the Wisdom to know the difference. 



June, 1959 



MAY RUSSELL 




To our Parents, whose interests have been in the improvement of 
our lives, whose love and encouragment have been inspirational, and 
whose never ending sacrifices have made possible these years at St. 
Mary's, we respectively dedicate the Castellan of 1959.

We offer this tribute as a lasting testimonial to the reverence and 
affection in which we hold the memory of Miss Rotha.

ALMA MATER 



On the banks of blue St. Mary's--near Potomac's 

strand, 
Stands our dear old Alma Mater- -best school in the 

land! 
Built of bricks from the first state house--near the 

mulb'ry's shade 
Where Lord Calvert with the Indians once a treaty 

made. 
Like a beacon by the river, stands she grandly bold. 
Giving knowledge to her daughters — worth more 

than pure gold, - 

Age and fire cannot destroy her- -(She has stood the 

test)-- 
We will always love St. Mary's--she deserves our 

best. 
We will ever love St. Mary's--love to praise her 

name; 
Strive to make our lives add luster to her glorious 

fame. 
Let your glad song wake the echoes, sing with voices 

free — 
Hail to Thee, Dear Alma Mater! --Hail, all hail, to 

Thee!

for a wonderful two years. Our first few days flew by with many, many questions to be answered. How- 
ever, when the old girls arrived, we were lost again--How could we possibly learn all the names? It 
wasn't long though. Having accomplished the trials and tribulations of 'Rat Week,' we felt that we 
were well on our way to becoming "Sem-Fems." We elected for our class officers: Beverly Stanard, 
President; Kathy Lore, Vice-President; Sissy Dawson, Secretary; Dottie DeWitt, Treasurer. Our rep- 
resentatives to Student Government were Bobbie Schmit and Beverly Stanard; and to Honor Court, Ann 
Howard. 

Even though we studied (we had too), we had our fun too. Parties in the Dorm and many Bridge 
games, and of course, there were quite a few silent trips down to the Dorm Smoker at night. 

As Spring arrived we were proud that Elena LeBel won Glamour Magazine's 'Best Dressed Girl On 
Campus' contest, and Perry Chappell was our representative to the May Court. With the graduation 
weekend upon us, we finally realized that we were going to be the graduating class for next year. 
Our class gave a dinner and dance for the graduates- -the Seniors and Sophomores of 1958. We left each 
other for the summer vacation, knowing that some were not returning for the next year. 

By the time Sept. rolled around, the Seniors were more than ready for the school year to begm. 
What they didn't have in numbers, they were only 17 strong, they certainly made up for in quality and 
in nearly every area of school life, they took the lead. Three of the major officers of the SGA went to 
Seniors: Mary Willis, President; Beverly Stanard, Vice President; and Perry Chappell, Secretary. Punch 
Thomas, as Honor Court Chairman, gave real meaning to that pledge; and Kathy Lore, the Vice President 
of A. A., made all sports twice the fun and the point system half as complicated! Kathy had help 
though--for instance our AA class representative was Big Dot Payne who practically threw her own heart 
over the net or in the basket when the big games were played. And "Dead Eye Dick" was surely outdone 
when Ann Davis became the Archery Manager. Then there was B. J. who just never stopped hiking and 
camping. Punch and her boating and swimming, and Mary Willis with her walking. 

The Senior Class can certainly boast of beauty too. No one could have made a prettier May Queen 
than our own Perry Chappell with Elena Lebel as the Senior princess. And we know that the Shenan- 
doah Apple Blossom Festival was better than ever this year because Bev Stanard was there representing 
the school. 

In fact, the Seniors supported nearly every school activity. When there were dances, the seniors 
were there. When the Choir performed on tour, the Seniors helped to make it the biggest and most 
successful one ever held at SMS. At Christmas time our class won the skit contest and we were very 
proud and pleased that Perry Chappell was "The Spirit of Christmas. " 

When there was work to be done, the seniors were there. For instance. Sue Cole, our co-editor of 
the yearbook, has burned the candle many a night; and have you ever seen our All-Stars, Elena Le- 
Bell and Dot Payne, come panting back to the dorm after a close game? 

Our class was led through the year of 1958-1959 by the class officers: Elena LeBell, President; 
Diane Lawrence, Vice President; Phyllis Smith, Secretary; and Betey Green, Treasurer. However, we 
have three girls who will lead the way to the altar to receive their MRS degrees: Phyllis Smith, Carol, 
and Dot. 

All in all, our class has had a wonderful two short years at SMS and are very sad in leaving, but we 
are all looking forward to coming back. Before we leave, however, we, as a class, want to wish the in- 
coming Senior Class of 1960 the best of luck in everything next year!

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY 

Our class had its beginning on a humid, overcast day in September, 1957. After we took our place- 
ment tests the orientation committee gave us a royal welcome with the usual P. J. party and picnic. 
The Fahls sponsored us, and we were the liveliest class in school. In intramurals we were known as the 
"Mighty Mistakes." We fought hard to win, but we were a small class. There were sixteen of us in all. 
Two were foreign students: Sara Carbia, from Puerto Rico, and Michia Iszkowski from France. We 
organized officially into one body when we elected our officers: Enid Griffin, President, Betty Baker, 
Vice President, Jerry Allen, Secretary, and Susan Claggett, Treasurer. Sandy Osteen was appointed to 
Honor Court, and Betty Baker was elected to Council. 

Time passed quickly and the Freshman Class had its glory duly given when they won the Christ- 
mas skit, sold the most Christmas seals, came in second in the Dramatic Arts Contest, and sent two of 
their best language students, Enid Griffin and Aleda Bunch, to the state-wide French tests. Aleda also 
had one of the leading roles in the fall play, OUR TOWN. Although we worked hard in school we had 
our fun too, especially the time our chemistry lab experiment on tooth paste blew up. Peggy Ward and 
Jerry Allen gained us more fame on the Women's Basketball Varsity. Jerry was also on the Tennis 
Varsity. Sandy Osteen and Kay Johnson were cheerleaders, and later they were elected to carry on next 
year's squad. In February Adele Hedges joined our class. 

Spring was ushered in with Pageant, May Day and the Prom. Our representative to the May Court 
was Kay Johnson. Peach Leighton played the starring role in the Choir's operetta, "Girls Will Be 
Girls." She and Kay also took part in the recital. When election time rolled around we elected Jerry 
Allen Treasurer of S.G.A. and Susan Claggett Treasurer of the A. A. Board. At the graduation cere- 
monies Sandy Osteen was awarded the Good Manners Award that is given to one Freshman every year, 
and Susan Claggett was awarded the American Legion Medal for making outstanding progress in 
science. We said good-bye to our French classmate, Michia, and we all looked forward to meeting again 
next year. 

Our class met again in September. Then we started into another year by greeting the ten new mem- 
bers of our class and putting our little sisses through the paces of Rat Week. The previously chosen 
officers began organizing for our busy year. They were Betty Baker, President, Enid Griffin, Vice Presi- 
dent, Adele Hedges, Secretary, and Susan Claggett, Treasurer. This year we decided to stay healthy 
and elect Miss Chance, the school nurse, as our sponsor. 

We were well represented on the AU-Star Volleyball Team by Sandy Osteen and Peggy Ward. 
Varsity basketball held the attention of our stars: Adele Hedges, Susan Claggett, Mindy Hopton, and 
Peggy Ward. Karen Gran worked very hard on the decorations for the school and the Christmas Ban- 
quet. Our class helped to present one of the biggest and most successful bazaars ever held at S.M.S. 
This year our jolly classmate, Ooggie Wetherill, was Santa Claus for the school. Sara danced and 
Peach play the piano for various entertaining activities throughout the year. When second semester 
started, our class not only dropped Sociology for Economics but we dropped our English teacher too. 
Karen was the accompanist for the choir soloists and the octet which Kay and Ooggie took part in. When 
the Dramatics Department put on its three one-act plays, Adele and Aleda represented our class in 
"When Shakespeare's Ladies Meet." 

Susanne Orme and Enid Griffin were elected from our class to the S.G.A. , and Mindy Hopton was 
appointed to Honor Court. 

The editor of the SIGNAL NEWS was Joan Carver, and Ooggie was co-editor for the CASTELLAN. 
Our representatives to the May Court this year were Susan Claggett and Sandy Osteen. The class super- 
latives are Karen Gran, most talented, Peggy Ward, most athletic, Betty Baker, most likely to succeed, 
and Ooggie Wetherill, best personality, most popular, and best all-round. 

This year some of us have learned many new things while others have gained from the knowledge of 
our fellow classmates. Kay and Sandy have taught us poise and manners. Enid, Karen, and Dianna, have 
learned to appreciate the local boys. Rutberg told us all there is to know about New Jersey. From their 
midnight parties, Joan, Susan, Adele, Peggy, and Sara Carbia have learned to be gracious hostesses. 
Peper taught us how to live with bow legs, and Aleda learned to keep a straight face while saying 
dramatic lines. Peach, Carol, Houser, Orme, and Betty Short know all about the boys from the Base, but 
Mickie is getting her M.R.S. degree in Navy life. Mindy and Ooggie learned to get into trouble as fast 
as they got out of it. 

But all in all we have had a wonderful time at S.M.S. We would like to give our greatest apprecia- 
tion and thanks to our teachers, big sisses, parents, and everyone else that helped to make these years 

so successful and happy.
