Gift of Glass of 1955
In the heart of the Lebanon Valley lies the small com-
munity of Annville, where life continues through its cycle of
birth and death. Education not forgotten however, finds its
vent in the curriculum of Lebanon Valley College. Named for
the rolling fields of farm land and the flowing streams of
mountain water, this school depicts the strength of character
which the Pennsylvania Dutch possess. Thus we, the future
graduates of 1955, present our book of time, "The Quittie,"
in a similar plan of character following that which the settlers
of this valley exhibited when they named this region "The

We, the class of 1955, sincerely apologize for
having to dedicate this yearbook to one who is de-
serving of a much higher honor.
We would like to give him so much more;
however, we, as a junior class, feel that this year-
book, which will become one of our most cherished
possessions, is the best tangible means of express-
ing our gratitude.
Two years ago he came to our campus. In
those two years all of us have learned to respect
his ability, but more important we have learned to
know him as a friend. His accomplishments have
been termed by many as being miraculous, but
even they are over-shadowed by the man himself.
Therefore, we dedicate our yearbook to our
teacher, our friend, our coach, our "Rinso."

Dean Dent came to us after several years of ex-
perience in social case work and personnel work.
She has been interviewed by several national
magazines and is considered one of the outstand-
ing Deans of Women in the country.
Because of her great understanding of young
girls and her personal interest in those of us at
Lebanon Valley, we ore greatly indebted to her,
not only for all the benefits she has achieved* for
us, but also for her warm friendliness and wise

MAY DAY 1954
In Spring a young man's fancy is supposed to turn to thoughts of love, but
several Valleyites hove their minds on baseball and traveling. Their would-be
sweethearts are alone and rather disconsolate. The two girls decide to take a trip
to Toyland — Wonderful boy and girl land. Taking the hint the boys hurriedly
pack their suitcases and hop on the train just in time.
Upon their arrival, the couples decide they ore hungry. Some basket laden
panda bears arrive and set up a delicious looking picnic lunch. Then the pandas
invite the couples to share their fun.
At the end of the meal the biggest bear claps his hands and a group of
lollipops appear. Each bear claims his favorite one, but has to chase it to get it.
The boys are tired of the frolicking and decide to play baseball. Several
athletes run in carrying large balls which the boys attempt in vain to steal.
Both the girls and the boys turn their attention to the antics of the tumblers
and the games of the boxes. A group of stuffed animals now join the dance, and
some soldiers and ballerinas are seen dancing in the background.
The two Valley coeds seemingly fall in love with the guards; Steve and Bill
rush in to rescue their girl friends.
This was the story of May Day — 1954, presented in honor of the May Queen,
Dariene Moyer and her court.
Things changed a lot the last while back.

GREEN BLOTTER CLUB
Green Blotter Club is an organization for creative writers at Lebanon Valley
College. At monthly meetings, held at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Struble, the
members read and discuss their manuscripts. Often the conversation branches
out into a discussion of art, folk legends, history, natural science or similar
Highlight of this year's program was the December meeting at which Colonel
Henry W. Shoemaker of the State Archives in Harrisburg was guest speaker.
An authority on the subject, Colonel Shoemaker spoke to the group on the
topic "Reasons for Collecting Pennsylvania Folklore."
The May Day pageant this yedr, with toyland as its theme, was based on a
story written by Lucie Portier, former president of Green Blotter.
Every year the group issues the Green Blotter Supplement, a collection of
poems, short stories, and essays by the members representative of their writings.
This year the Green Blotter Supplement was published in the January 14 issue of
La Vie Collegienne. Throughout the year the club members have also had a
manuscript printed in each issue of the college newspaper in the column
"Ink Spots from Green Blotter."
Janice Walker is Head Scop and Adora Rabiger, Keeper of the Word Horde.
Other members include Roger Dundore, Paul Holligan, Lucie Portier, Dorothy
Roudabush, Frances Thomas, and Dick Shover. Members ore voted into the

The French Club, advised by Mrs. Frank and Dr.
Struble meets each month at Dr. Struble's home.
Its program includes some slides on the lives of
French authors, learning something of the French
way of life, and playing French games. One of the
highlights of the year was a French dinner served
by Mrs. Frank, in February. The club provides an
excellent opportunity for speaking French informally.
Psychology Club Officers

The Psychology Club, underthe leadership of Presi-
dent Clarence Ulrich, hod a very successful year,
learning about the various phases of psychology and
the jobs available in these fields. Guest speakers
from the immediate area or movies were featured
at each meeting.
The biggest meeting of the year was a trip to the
Lebanon Veterans Hospital in March. Here we were
shown through the wards, recreation rooms, and the
types of therapy which are used in that institution.
The club members are more informed as a result
of the year's activities.

THE STUDENT CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
Again this year the Student Christian Association has been
one of the leading organizations on our Lebanon Valley Col-
lege campus. From the very first day of the college year when
the SCA members are on hand to greet the in-coming Fresh-
men, to May Day in the Spring, the SCA is in the midst of the
hustle and bustle of college activity, making its presence
known and appreciated.
Under the leadership of Lucie Portier, this year's president,
and Dr. Sparks and Professor Ehrhart, the SCA has sponsored
a Christmas and Easter cantata, a hayride for Christmas
caroling, a Weekend Work Retreat at the Brethren Service
Center, New Windsor, Maryland, and an active part in the
planning of Religious Emphasis Week, plus unlimited as-
sistance in the May Day activities.
Lucie and Mary are all set
to go to work camp.

POLITICAL SCIENCE CLUB
The Political Science Club, whose purposes it is to give practcal training in the
mechanics of government and to stirhulate thought in all fields of political science;
to secure information relating to the political sciences through addresses by guest
speakers; to train students of Lebanon Valley College for participation in the Inter-
Collegiate Conference on Government; and to foster friendships by means of social
activities, was led capably by its president James Fry,
William Gargone and Sidney Hoffing, student-chairman and assistant student-chair-
man to Inter-Collegiate Conference on Government respectively, took a complete
delegation of students to the Regional meeting held in Hershey on March 6 and the
State Convention in Harrisburg on April.
Outside of the annual convention, the organization was extremely active. The two
socials in February and May proved a huge success. And the club needs to be compli-
mented on the fine manner it once more handled the basketball programs concessions.
Pi Gamma Mu is a social science honor society of national scope. Its purpose is to
improve scholarship and to achieve synthesis in the social studies; to inspire social
service to humanity by an intelligent approach to the solution of social problems;
to engender sympathy toward others with different opinions and institutions by a
better mutual understanding; and to supplement and support existing social science
organizations by promoting sociability and attendance ai meetings. The privilege of
membership in the society is granted to those who have shown unusual interest and
aptitude in the field of social studies.
The high point of the year's activity was the annual banquet on March 26 in the
Palmyra American Legion Home.

The Chem Club, centered around the Lebanon Valley Chapter of the Student Affiliates of The
American Chemical Society, sponsors a varied program of activities and invites all students who
have an interest in chemistry to join in. Among these activities are regular meetings at which lec-
tures are followed with refreshments, the club's annual dinner dance, several field trips to indus-
trial and governmental research laboratories, publication of the bi-weekly "Filtrates and Residues"
and semi-annual "Lab Oratory," and sale of lab aprons, Lange's Handbook, and other accessories to
the student chemists.
This years activities were highlighted by a trip to the Natonal Health Foundation Laboratories,
sponsorship of a radio program every two weeks, and a guest speaker from the F.B.I.

The Alpha Zeta Chapter of Beta Beta Beta Na-
tional Biological Society is the first of its kind on
Lebanon Valley's campus. The charter group of
sixteen was initiated April 28, 1953 by Dr. A. A.
Sturdivant of Western Maryland College. Because
of its strict requirements, the society has grown
slowly but steadily since that time. It is hoped
that in time it will play a prominent role in the
life and activities of the college. This society has
replaced the Biology Club and has as its counselor
Dr. V. Earl Light, head of the biology department.
Richard Musselman has been given the honor of
being Alpha Zeta's first president. Tri-Beta chose
as its main project of the year blood typing. The
members typed blood of the college students free
of chorge giving them special cards containing
their blood type. This initial project was a success
and was praisjd by many. To round out the year's
activities, the members were entertained in the
spring at Dr. Light's where a weiner roast was held.

KNIGHTS OF THE VALLEY
This year the Knights of the Valley under the very capable leadership
of President Dick Musselman and advisor "Rinso" Marquette, again
sought new lands to conquer. This year the conquest was in the form of
the local laundry service. If someone asked you why you hadn't changed
your sheets since Christmas, you could bet that he was Knight in search
of soiled laundry.
The organization once again undertook its usual activities, most out-
standing of which was the very successful formal dinner-dance at the
Hotel New Brunswick in Lancaster on April 3. The members were also
seen prior to Christmas with hugh stacks of Christmas cards for sale.
NEW JERSEY CLUB
Headed by President Henry Chudzikiewicz the club continued its
many activities. This year a social and a dance were part of their
many plans. As the name implies membership is limited to New
Jersey students, this being the only qualification. The club was
organized during Christmas of 1951 at which time a constitution
was proposed and eventually drafted a year later. The objective of
this club as stated in the constitution is to "bring together on the
Lebanon Valley campus the students from New Jersey in order to
forman Alumni Association and to add to the social, academic and
athletic life of New Jersey students on campus.

LIFE WORK RECRUITS
Those students who are deeply interested in religious work and have dedicate
their lives to full time Christian service as ministers, missionaries, or lay workers in
the Church are banded together in this organization. Its aims is to further the King-
dom of God, to enrich the spiritual life of its members, and to help prepare them
for Christian leadership. The group sends teams of young people into churches each
week where they take charge of services. The club also makes a number of visits to
charity institutions during the year.
In all they do they are following the challenge: "Go ye therefore, and teach all
nations . . ." St. Matthew 28:19.

KAPPA LAMBDA SIGMA
Kappa Lambda Sigma, the largest men's society on
campus, began its activities way back in 1877. Now
operating under a newly revised constitution, Kalo,
as it is popularly known, is striving to "foster the
intellectual and social interests of its members in
this order of importance: weld them into a common
union; assist the College and its students whenever
called upon; promote knowledge, morality, and

DELTA LAMBDA SIGMA
Delta Lambda Sigma, better known as Delphian is the sister society
to Kalo. It holds monthly meetings and joint-meetings with Kalo. This
organization has accomplished a great deal this year. The society put
more emphasis on the idea of helping others. This year the girls were
working to make life a bit brighter for some not as fortunate as them-
selves. They adopted an orphanage and threw a Christmas party for
hte orphans, complete with presents and lots of Christmas cheer. Other
projects somewhat similar are in the offing for next year. The society
also tried its hand at a book sale. Along the social line Delphian has
held several Open Houses in Delphian Hall which were always a success.
Once again this year Delphian held its annual dinner-dance at the
Reading Country Club in conjunction with Kalo.

PHI LAMBDA SIGMA
Philo, the oldest society on campus,
had particularly good success this
year in its activities. Taking in over
fifteen initiates, the club is now
operating under its constitution which
is only one year old.
With Bob Krieg as president the
society sponsored several successful
social events. Besides having one of
the best organized rush weeks, the
club, along with its sister society
Kappa Lambda Nu, had their annual
spring formal and St. Patrick's day
social. This year they also innovated
a Halloween masquerade ball.
Phi Lambda Sigma also held their
annual stag night and formal installa-
tion of next year's officers. Now with
one of the largest and most unified
clubs in its long history, Philo expects
even better things for next year.

Kappa Lambda Nu, the older of the girls' societies on campus,
upheld the high ideals, which have always been cherished by her
members, throughout the year's activities. The girls strive to
live up to the motto, "Virtue et fide," as the wise old owl and
the goddess of wisdom, Minerva, watch over and inspire them.
This year's undertakings included the annual pledge tea and
fashion show, given at the home of Clio's advisor, Mrs. Ruth
Bender; a Halloween dance, where prizes were given for the best
masquerades; an informal initiation in which prospective mem-
bers had to prove their worth and willingness to join the organi-
zation; and a trip to the Lebanon County Old Peoples' Home.
The girls provided entertainment and refreshments in conjunc-
tion with the Lebanon Soroptimist Club.
With her brother society, Philo, Clio presented the play, A
Murder Has Been Arranged. The annual Clio-Philo Dinner-dance
was held in April at the Berkshire Hotel in Reading. St. Patrick's
Day was celebrated by a dance in the auxiliary gym.
At the end of pledge week Clio and Delphian sponsored a
dance to honor the newly initiated members.

ISS MARY E. GILLESPIE
The efforts, goals, and standards of the Lebanon
Valley Conservatory of Music are personified in the
occupant of the main office of that building. Since
1930 Miss Gillespie has been shouldering the responsi-
bilities of running a well-organized and productive con-
servatory. Having obtained her Bachelor of Science and
Masters degrees in Music Education from Columbia
University, she taught for five years at the University
of Delaware; after which she joined our faculty.
The accredidation of our conservatory is in major
portion due to the earnest and intense work of this
Scotch-Irish Trojon from Seymour, Indiana. Miss Gilles-
pie has set a fine example for all future music teachers
by being, herself, devoted to her job and her school,
and by constantly striving to improve and better the
standards for which she is responsible.
"Music it was we brougttt from heav'n,
On an angel's breath so pure,
And it alone may we carry back,
As a thing which shall endure."
— Samuel R. Gaines
The memories of Professor E. P. Rutledge, which will
long remain in the hearts of those who knew, loved,
and worked under him, can never be divorced from
music — be it choral or instrumental. His life was devoted
to music and to people — he could give a smile as
quickly as he could a down-beat.
There can be no tribute raised to this man except
to continue to nourish the seeds which he planted —
seeds of harmony in music and life.

The nipping fall winds, the smell of football in
the air, the shouts from the grandstands, and then
the blue and white band comes marching down the
field. The presence of the L. V. C. marching band
at all the football games has proved to be invaluable
to the players and the fans. Since the untimely
death of Professor Edward P. Rutledge in January
of '54, Professor Frank Stachow, assisted by head
drum major, Dave Council, has taken charge of the
The high-stepping majorettes of L. V. C. showed
splendid marching form during this past year's foot-
ball season. Jane Mellin Smith, head majorette,
introduced two new strutting techniques to the
majorette's repertoire this year. These are the
graceful Pony Strut and Formation Strutting. Jan's
past experience in majoretting proved to be an asset
to the majorettes and L. V. C.
At the close of football season, the "Blue and White
Marching Band" becomes a large Concert Band and presents
many concerts both on and off campus.
The Concert Band made its first appearance this year, in
Engle Hall, April 2 in the Annual Spring Festival. Many out-
standing selections were presented. These selections demon-
strated the high degree of musical interpretations attained
by the band. The band was under the direction of Professor
Frank Stackow, Professor of Woodwinds in the Conservatory.
This is an organization made up entirely of female instrumentalists from the Conserva-
tory and College. This year the girls proudly wore their new uniforms which were bought with
the proceeds of last year's concert. The feminine "Bandsters" participated in the half-time
festivities at the Home-Coming football game this year and showed the boys that they had

"0 Sacred Art, Music Fair!" These words, taken
from a choral adaptation of Chopin's "Etude in E," could
easily be used as the motto for this group, composed of
forty selected voices.
This year's Glee Club had a widely varied program
which reached its climax in the Waring choral arrange-
ment of Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker Suite." Also included
were a group of folk-songs and several religious numbers.
The group has sung for several of the campus activities
inculding the Annual Music Festival and Commencement.
It has performed on television and has held concerts at
Palmyra, Lebanon, Harrisburg, and York.

The Chorus, composed of all the students
in the Conservatory and several from the
College, presented Elijah in the Annual
Music Festival directed by Mr. Reynaldo
Appearing with the Chorus were the fol-
lowing outstanding soloists: Suzanne der
Derian, soprano; Elma Jean Swope, mezzo
soprano; John McCullum, tenor; and Paul
King, baritone. Frank Mulheron, Senior in
Conservatory, accompanied the entire
group on the organ.
The performance of Elijah will long be
remembered by all who participated in
making it a success.
Recitals are presented throughout the
college year by the conservatory faculty
and students for the public and campus.
These recitals enable the students to per-
form before others, and they also give the
students teachers a chance to introduce
their students to the public. Through per-
forming the student increases his experi-
ence, and repertoire.
By attending the recitals, the student
improves his technique; improves his knowl-
edge in various musical forms; increases his
familarity with the works of masters. These
recitals also promote good listening habits.

VARSITY FOOTBALL SQUAD
The 1953 Flying Dutchmen football team, headed by coach Dick Fox, came through with a very
commendable 5 win and 2 loss record. Assisting Fox was a former Valley star. Honk DiJohnson.
Led by quarterback Lou Sorrentino and nine other returning lettermen, the Valley had to depend
on speed and an explosive aerial attack to win out over Wilkes, P.M.C., Moravian, Albright, and
Western Maryland. The greatest victory of the season was the win over Albright in the Pretzel Bowl
to avenge the defeat of last year. The two losses to Muhlenberg and Gettysburg, both of which are
moving into bigger time football were partly due to the definite lack of reserve strength.
Sorrentino accounted for most of the offensive movement as he hit on over 50% of his passing
attempts. Running from the halfback slots were co-captain Dick Musselman and Don DeBenedett,
while Ross Plasterer did the line bucking from the fullback position. In the line were ends — Frank
Retrievi, George Radonovic, and Gene Zimmerman; tackles — Dick Sparks and Rusty Owens; guards
— co-captain Ed Hutchko and Dean Becker; center — Lou Gittleman.

VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM
Lebanon Valley's High Flying Dutchmen, for the second straight
year under the capable tutelege of Coach "Rinso" Marquette, had
a very successful season. Comprising the Valley team were three
veterans in "Howie" Landa, Lou Sorrentino, and Herb Finkelstein
plus Freshmen Dick Shover and Don Reinhard. Coming off the
bench and helping the starting five many times were Freshmen Bob
Nelson and Juniors Ken Ellis and "HowieY.Kosier. Landa posted the
best average with 21.5 points per game followed by Finkelstein and
Sorrentino with 15.5 and 14 respectively. -iHnkelstein and Reinhard

curacy from the field hitting on 9 shots in 9 attempts.
Scranton was the next opponent to move into Annville and Coach
.Marquette's bosketeers breezed to an easy 78-46 victory. The
visitors made a game of it for a few minutes but after going ahead
12-10, Valley had little trouble. Landa and Sorrentino shared
honors with 24 and 18 points respectively.

the Valley but in the end the veterans led the way. Landa, Finkel-
stein, and Sorrentino hit for 27, 22, and 15 points respectively.
Moving into Allentown, the Dutchmen faced a strong Muhlen-
berg quintet and with Landa scoring 35 plus Sorrentino's 18 points
the Valley pulled the game out of the fire 86-83. Land's 35 points

Once again Lebanon Valley was chosen to play in a post season tourna-
ment — this time the N A I A — a small college affair. The Dutchmen needed
two victories to represent their district out in Kansas City. In their final
game they easily defeated Millersville by the score of 81-64. Sorrentino led
the attack as "Rinso's raider" turned a closely contested first few minutes
into a complete rout. This victory gave Valley the right to meet Geneva of
Western Pennsylvania for representation at Kansas City, However, Geneva's
Bill Blair with 38 points plus injuries from the Juniata game the night be-
fore proved too much of an obsticle to overcome as the Valley fell 77-64.
Thus ended the hopes of a Dutchmen Tournament win but with the victory
over Dickeinson the Valleyites closed a successful season with a 19-6 record.
Three individuals from L. V. got recognition by the A. P. and U.P. as Landa
won honorable mention on the U.P.'s All American Team and a berth on
the All State Second Team. Sorrentino and Finkelstein won honorable men-
tion on the All State Team.

The Lebanon Valley Junior Dutchmen with a not too impressive over-all record did manage
through with some fine play at the end of the season. The greatest victory of the year was over Mi
in the preliminary to the tournament game. Leading the attack were Ken Schuler, Larry Mentzer, J

Plasterer. They were ably assisted
by Bob Birch, Hal Benninghoff,
Don Banchik and Larry Zeigler.
Although they didn't always come
out on top it is highly probable
that Coach Fox moulded some

WOMEN'S HOCKEY TEAM
Although the Lebanon Valley Women's Hockey team won no gomes during the 1953 sea-
son, they displayed in all their encounters sportsmanship and the "never say die" attitude
which has characterized Lebanon Valley's teams for many years. They started the season
with a great deal of spirit; and, alhtough defeated in their last game, this spirit was still
evident in their playing.
The most spectacular game of the season was held on Homecoming Day, October 24th,
with Shippensburg State Teachers College. The Lebanon Valley girls kept pace with the
team from S.S.T.C. until the last five minutes. In these few precious minutes, Shippensburg
scored two goals to become victorious 5-3.
On October 31st, Lebanon Valley College played host to three other hockey teams in the
annual All-College Touranment. These teams were from Albright, Bucknell University and
Lock Haven State Teachers College. Girls were then chosen to ploy in the Central Penn
Tournament at Wilson College at Chambersburg. Irene Urian, a sophomore, was chosen
to play on the first team. Evelyn Eby, a senior, finished her college hockey career by making
the second team. Honorable mention was given to Gail Edgar, also a senior, and Mary Lou
Young, a junior.
With the addition of several capable freshmen girls on the team this year, and the loss
of only two seniors who will be graduating, the prospects for next year's season stand as
good at this point. Whether or not they will have a winning season, the women's hockey
team will be a team with the "will to win."

THE FLYING DUTCHGIRLS
Coach Betty Jane Bowman had the advantage of having many varsity
players returning from last year's squad. Many outstanding players from
the freshman class helped round out the squad.
Thos returning from last year's squad were Irene Urian, Center For-
ward; Naomi Sprenkle, Left Forward; Co-captain Mary Lou Young,
Right Guard. Rounding out the squad are Jane Hoffman, Right Forward;
Jean Winters, Center Guard; Co-captain Lois Reedy, Left Guard; Bev
Ross, Forward; riene Reynolds, Guard; Emily Clemens, Guard.
The season wasn't very successful as the team lost a majority of its
games, but through good teamwork and spirit it accomplished a great

GIRLS' J.V. BASKETBALL
The junior varsity basketball team came through the season with a record of four wins and five
losses. This was very impressive as all but a few were freshmen. They got off to a good start by beating
Millersville S.T.C. in the first game. The most exciting game of the season however, was away at
Millersville when the junior Dutchgiris played a nip-and-tuck game the whole way through, and in
the last few minutes pulled away to win by a mere three point margin. Due to the sharp-shooting of
Sylvia Edris and the expert guarding of Joanee Young, the final score was 29-26. The team as a
whole deserves much credit and many congratulations for having a very good season.
May the best team win.

BOYS' CHAMPIONSHIP BASKETBALL TEAM
GIRLS' "?" BASKETBALL TEAM
On the evening of March 18, 1954, the students
of Lebanon Valley College witnesse the most ex-
citing basketball game of the entire season. As a
climax to a tremendous record of wins the boy's
varsity basketball team played the girls' team
for the championship of the college.
As in other years the boys were seriously handi-
capped. They had to play girls' rules, they weren't
allowed to jump, and they had to shoot with their
left hands. The non-jump part, however, wasn't
too effective against Kosier, Reinhard, and Nelson.
The fascinating part of the game was the
adeptness with which Howie Landa,, Lou Sorren-
tino, and Herb Finkelstein handled the ball in
Despite the boys' tricky left-handed hooks and
peeps and the inability of the girls to compensate
for the bursts of speed of their opponents, the
score was very close until the remaining three
minutes. At this point the entire squad of girls
mounted the floor against the starting five. At
this point, to confuse things a little more, two more
balls appeared from somewhere. The final score,
with a few miscalculations was 24-23 in favor of
The long and short of it.
See here, now, ref! Surrounded, but what a way to die! What a crazy game.

Resuming its usual active program, the "L" Club has again disproven
"the big, dumb athlete myth" and taken its place among the leading
organization on campus. This year, in coordination with the college
Athletic Council, the club members once again did a smashing job of
add peddling for the football programs. The bib club fling was the
annual "L" club homecoming dance. With Frank Retrevi at the reigns,
the "L" men. again came through with a top notch affair. The theme of
the dance, Mr. Touchdown, L.V.C., was enacted to the "T", or rather to
the "L", by the decorations and general presentation of the dance.
The organization's year ended with the annual "Ail Sports" Banquet
and the presentation of awards to the lettermen.
The Women's Athletic Association has this year under president
Rosie Hollinger greatly improved its annual intramural program. It has
aded several new sports such as hockey and co-ed archery tournaments.
These, plus many other activities, such as the annual freshman hike and
intramural ping pong, basketball, volleyball, Softball highlight the
W.A.A. yearly program. These various sports activities give extra-cur-
ricular enjoyment to the women of the college. Through this much im-
oroved program, the number of initiates this year was very high. The
annual banquet was held in the spring (at the American Legion in Ann-
ville). Here the girl's earning enough points were awarded their chenille
"L's," gold "L's" and blazers, the latter being the highest honor achieved
by a member of W.A.A. All in all this proved to be a very fruitful year
for the organization with high hopes of an even better one next year.
