The album section of the Epitome contains the
familiar faces of all the students, faculty, administra-
tion, and staff. These people in our school give it
the needed personality and spirit which serves as a
colorful backdrop for our educational system. Not
all of our education stems from the classroom. Much
is learned through our associations with other stu-
dents. — Now let us recall the schoolyear of 1960-61
by walking DOWN MEMORY LANE with people.

Sports form the basis for the intense school spirit

as some of the teams in our area, our teams are fight-

school sports at Hagerstown are well received and
backed by the community because they form a fine
competitive spirit in the students at H.H.S. — Now

The Hagerstown Tigers, with several returning lettermen, posted a 10-12 season
record, the best in several years. The team performed very creditably against some
of the state's top ranked powers, nearly upsetting eighth ranked Lawrenceburg and losing
a two pointer to twelfth ranked Royerton. The team also gained renown locally by
winning the Cambridge City Invitational Tourney and by defeating powerful Centerville
twice during the season. The Tigers were eliminated in the semi-final round of the
sectional by the sectional champions, Cambridge City.
The Tiger mentor, Coach Pete Armstrong, in his
first year with the Tigers brought to Hagerstown some
of his winning ways from Decatur Central where he
coached his team to a sectional victory. He has
backed the Tigers all the way and is respected and
admired by all the fans and players. We look for
many successful seasons under Coach Armstrong.

Extracurricular activities are very important to
the lives of the students of H.H.S. These activities
develop leadership and character in those individuals
who actively participate in them. H.H.S. not only
develops the student academically, but socially as
well. — Now let us recall the schoolyear of 1960-61
by walking DOWN MEMORY LANE with activities.

The Future Homemakers of America is an organ-

They do this by meeting the various goals set up
by the district, state, and national organizations.
Mrs. Braun and the cabinet have done commendable
work in encouraging the girls to carry out their many
projects and activities in order to reach these goals.

and to make new friends. The girls participate in such sports as soft-

are interested in any of these sports are eligible to become a member
and compete against teams from other schools. G.A.A. meetings and

dents who have had one year or more of
Latin. Through the interesting meetings pro-

students receive a modern day view of how
the ancient Romans lived. The highlight
of the club's activities comes in March when
the members hold a Roman Banquet.

participate in skits and games, lis-

The yearbook staff each year has one important function — the publishing of the
EPITOME. Because of endless hours of preparation and planning the 1961 EPITOME
is new and different from cover to cover! This year, for the first time, the EPITOME
was printed by the offset method. Because of this we have versatility of lay-outs and
color in the front of the book. We, the EPITOME editors, think that this method is much
better than that used in the past and we hope that classes in the years to come will
continue to use this method.
Pictured above are the members of the 1961 Epitome Sales Staff. They did a remarkable job and
sold a record number of books this year. This is the first year that we have had such a staff and we
hope that this practice will continue.

National Honor Society
The National Honor Society, formed in 1954, is a respected organization which
strives to influence students to be better citizens. It bases its principles on leadership,
character, scholarship and service. The National Honor Society is designed for the
all-around student and not necessarily the book worm. Scholarship is, however, the
first point that eligibility is based upon. One must attain a B average in his semester
grades before being considered; the other three criteria are considered before the
selection is made. Members of the National Honor Society Selection Committee are:

Mr. Stone and Darryl Pass work with one of the projects
carried out through our student council.
This is the second year for student council at Hagerstown.
Its purpose is to improve our school through student opinion.
Working as a service organization, the student council spon-
sored the annual Christmas program, helped the Phi Chi Epsi-
lon Sorority in collecting money for the polio fund, and as-
sisted in some of our school elections. Mr. Stone and the
council are to be commended for the fine work they have
The library assistants, under the direction of Mrs. Helm, add very much to the
efficiency of our library. In addition to stacking, sorting, and checking books, they
also prepare monthly bulletin boards and help fellow students find magazines, books,
and pamphlets. Yes, without the library assistants, the library would not be complete.

Junior Red Cross
The Junior Red Cross is a division of the International Red Cross Organization. The
Hagerstown J.R.C. has built a gift chest to send overseas to an underprivileged area.
This chest contains enough material to start a small school. To support their service
projects the H.H.S. Junior Red Cross sponsors a spring variety show.
Mr. Sedgwick has done remarkably well in teaching the seventh and eighth
graders how to give first aid as well as prevent accidents. They learn how to take
care of cuts, burns, broken bones, shock, and many other things. At the end of the
year the students receive cards signifying they have completed the first aid course.
The Class of '61 paid tribute to the Romans by using the theme,
"Baccanalia" for their Junior-Senior Prom. Many hours were spent .
in the preparation of this gala event. The prom committees, under the .■','.;
direction of prom chairman Nick Jarrett, developed novel and unique
ideas. As shown by the pictures on the left, the couple first noticed ;'...'••/

and columns surrounding them. Our class certainly appreciates the-..'

Every four years the senior government classes hold a mock election.
Several weeks were devoted to campaigning by the two organized major
political parties, and acquainting the students with the necessary instructions
needed before voting. In voting booths, the student casts his ballot for
the national, state and county officials of his choice. The seniors believe
that the time and effort put into this was well spent, because the training
gained here will be helpful to all of us when we reach voting age.

Education is the foundation of our modern civ-
ilization; a person with an education has an oppor-
tunity to better himself and his generation. H.H.S.
offers a wide variety of subjects to prepare one with
any type of education he may want — vocational or
academic. A high percentage of Hagerstown grad-
uates use their high school education as a back-
ground for college while for many it is their highest
level of formal education. — Now let us recall the
schoolyear of 1960-61 by walking DOWN MEMORY
LANE with classes.

Many students think that Latin is dead,
but it has proved to be an exciting travel
through a land of romance and thrill to
those students who have studied Latin
under Miss Frum.
Spanish classes taught by Mrs. Car-
penter have enjoyed learning the lan-
guage and customs of our neighbors
"South of the Border."
We all know how important our knowl-
edge and use of the English language is
to us. With the addition of another
English course to the four already offered,
our correct use of the English language
can be perfected.

The art department is very active throughout
the school as illustrated by the numerous posters
seen around the school. During the year, there are
two contests in which the individual artists enter —
the Scholastic Art Award Contest for creative achieve-
ment on original work and Mr. Jackson's own private
contest in which an award is given on the basis of
initiative and imagination of the individual.

The student body and local organizations
have enjoyed very much the performances
given by the H.H.S. Chorus during the past
school year. Miss Freeman and the students
spend many extra hours getting their music
right to give the best possible performance,
so the chorus has become an activity as
well as a class.

The Golden Tiger Band gives many inter-

the school spirit at H.H.S.!
