60-minute man

Howard High's Football Dinner: "George Petrlik, co-captain of Howard High's football team and Tom Anderson, Glenelg's hard-hitting quarterback, have been selected to receive honors at the Baltimore Chapter Second Annual National Football Foundation Awards Dinner on Wednesday, March 10, at the Emerson Hotel in Baltimore.

Tom is described by Vernon E. Seibert, Glenelg's Athletic director, as 'a 60 minute player, going both ways on offense and defense. He is a strong runner,' continued Seibert, 'and an ardent student of the game. I have found him to be refined, mannerly, a responsible leader and very coachable.'

George has maintained a 'B' average in the college preparatory course, while engaged in varsity football, basketball and baseball. He is currently secretary for the Letterman's Club.  Speaker for the evening will be Richard W. Colman, Jr., coach of Princeton's last year undefeated Tigers."

 Other social notes: "Mr. and Mrs. R. Warren Edwards of Valley Road have returned from Virginia Beach, where they attended the Chevrolet Convention.

"Mr. and Mrs. Stuart Snader of Foxhill Drive spent the week-end of February 20 in Philadelphia for the anniversary celebration of the Alpha Pi Lambda Fraternity of Drexel Institute.

"Mr. and Mrs. Al Jaffe of Tyler, Ct., entertained their Couples Bridge Group Saturday evening."

Ellicott City, are pictured on the deck. They are bound for a vacation cruise to the sun-filled Bahamas and West Indies for two weeks."
