It had three classrooms, a well in the schoolyard, and outdoor toilets, and it taught all the grades through the seventh. The school is gone now but you can easily find where it used to be; the Gunton Temple Memorial Presbyterian Church stands on that soot today. There were school buses in those days, but children mho lived closer than a mile had to walk. That meant there mere quite a Few Cabin John children walking over the bridge. Their parents may have worried over devil-may-care boys who wanted to walk the railing, but they didn’t worry much the automobile traffic or perhaps one car an hour. In the first qu.arter of thl8 century, area parents had s choice of sending their children to this school–Glen Echo Elementary–or sending them into Washington to attend the DC schools, and about half of the families chose that option. Then the District got budget- conscious end ruled that non-resldents were no longer welcome. Suddenly the enrollment at Glen Echo School was 91 children, and their principal, E. Guy Jewell, had to rent two additional facilities for his classes. *’We used the Sunday School room of the Glen Echo Baptist Church and the Cabin John mechanics Hall, that big building across ?9th Street from Tuohey’a”, he recalls ‘*and I shot beck and forth in a model-T Ford that cost me $420’*. (N.B. Mr. Jewsll’e fantastic memory and I In a letter dated ~arch 11, 1927 Mr; J.S. Tomlineon wrote to Mr. WeB. Armatrong, lr”Koep both eyes open, also both oars, end ta~o up every little point which may be tutned~to advantage and you will be some day greatly rewarded for 811 this trouble”. Finally, the stalemate WOOrreoolvediby agreeing to build the school on ou~ side of the bridge and to glve them top billing. So the county pald $15,000 to ~rs. Boblngar (who owned and operated the Cabin John~Hotel which burned damn in Ig31) and bought e four acre tract at the corner of Conduit Road and First Street° The school still occupies the san site but nom we say it’s at the corner of 75th Street end ~cArthur Boulevard. The school, six classrooms, we8 finished in the spring o? 1928 and Guy Jemell came over ee the first principal of the Glen Echo-Cabin John Elementary School. His salary was $1,575. “That went pretty fa~’*, says Mr. Jemell. ‘*I got room and board for $20 a month”. The school was a modal of modern school design and earned a number of architectural 8warde. The dedication ceremony was set for June 13, 1928 and then t~Ouble began. Who would be the speaker? Should it be a school official? An elected tepresehtetive? From which party? To settle the argument, which had become quite maim, it max decided to take~ suggestion, And what is more, all the distinguished citizens who were lnvited, i accepted. The program for the Dedicatory Exerciseslists addressee by the speaker!of the Maryland House of Delegates, the Supgrvtsor of School Property, the President of the Board of Education, the Representative of Maryland’s Sixth District, and the Superintendent o~ Schools. Plus remarks by the presidents of ten, ten citizens groups. And that doesn’t count the invocation, benediction, singing, and, mercifully, refreshments. I asked Mr. Jewel1 If that dldnmt represent about ?our hours of listening and he laughed. “It looked that way, but fortunately the presidents of the citizens groups gave nearly identical speeches consisting mostly of ‘I’m glad to be hats’ and the two main speakers didn’t show up. One of them Balked in during refreshments end said that hls chauffeur got wonderful instinct for the human aide of histo~/ loot on the way from Annapolis. The next day have boon of great help in mrtttng this account, we got an apologetic message from the congress- bothof the time when he wee principal and Far beyond.) The strain wee too much for the school on Wilson Lane and the decision mac made to build • new school. The ladles of the Home Demon- strstton Club (later the Homemakers Club) had lately invited the superintendent of schools, Mr. Brooms, to speak to them and had taken the opportunity to bombard him with good and plenty reasons for getting a new school. But mhere was the school to be? Proud citizens of Glen Echo and equally proud citizens of Cabin John insisted that their respective stoma were supplying the moot etu- men that he had been tied up in a committee meeting, but the Bard was that the poker game had brian too good to leave*** In 1929 the eighth and ninth grades had been added, and the enrollment smelled to 330. A second story wee added in 1930 end the next year the ninth grads wee transferred out of the school. When the citizen8 discovered that the county allotment For th~ school didn’t cover the cost of the lendscapl~’g as planned9 they donated 8htubep flower8 end their own muscle to see fi! that the grounds’were as beautiful as they dents and offered the most advantageous locat~n, should be, For a while it looked as though no compromise From a newspaper clipping come the eubjacte short of buildlng the school on the Unlon Bridge or two PTA meetlngep “The Father As A Companion” would be satisfactory. And what mould they and “Sex Education”. What year would you~guese? cell the school? More heated debate. Cabin Would you believe 1929? i ~ Johnere refused to let the new school have the old name–the Glen Echo School. Glen Echo When Guy Jewel1 left the achoolp he map citizens were equally adamant in objecting to followed by Mrs. (cid:127)oCayp J.E. Thotntonj “The Cabin John School”. Well then, how about Mr. Nelson, Ruth Sessions, David Trundle,! Cabin John-Glen Echo; or should it be Glen Echo-Louise Coltpp ~tguatita Albertson~ Edward Cabin John?

Atthe Hellowe’en party Polly Prather and Thede miscall sang in the Pumpkin Chorus. During the year, PTA meetings featured an open house where each teacher gave an “address” to.the parents of her pupils, • recital when Lois Rolyneeux end Doris Ryon sang “Do You Know Ry GardenS’, an evening of tableaux with Noel Potter as King Arthur, end the awarding.of prizes For the best essays on the subject “What A Room Re,her ~eane To Re °’. ~arion Rarriott won • prize For her essay prelsing mrs. Cempleir. Another major event of that school year wee the PTA card party et the school, with 12 tables of bridge:and Five Hundred,. which raised $45.. Hazel Cummings DeWitt still hoe the progta~ of “Commencement Exercises of the Glen Echo- Cabin John School” For June 10, 1937. Gradu- ating with Hazel From eighth grade ware 34 scrubbed end polished classmates, including Peter Campleir, Carlton Roney, end Charles Smith, Jr. if! Strong citizen sentiment wee the order of the day in the 30’e and 40,e, end various local groups were active and Frequently. zealously competitive. As e result of one such not-so,~riendly rivalry, the little school Found Itself with tie pianos, one upright end one baby grand. The teachers room wee beautifully decorated with choice items From neighborhood homes. One lady generously donated • Iong-cherlshed painting only to send her husband hurrying to the school that evening to retrieve their marriage ‘license which had always been kept in the beck of the picture frame. In 1941 the junior high format wee established throughout ~ontgomery County, and the Seventh end e~jlthgredere from Glen Echo- Cable John were transferred to Lelend Junior High in Bethesda. Three years later thechildren of the school undertook to Find • ‘better name for their alma meter. Reybe they Just found it too hard to work up any good school yells mith that tongue twister for a punch line. In 1944, upo~ the recommendation of the PTA, the name was ~hanged to Clare Barton Elementary School. A favorite after-school spot for the older Clar~ Barton children (and their big brothers end sisters) wee the sodsfountain, on ~ecA~thur at ?ath Street. Next door to the soda founteln wee e store with gas pumps out front. The store closed and the soda Fountain enlarged. But the crowd of habitues got rouqher, and mote from out or the community. But, so that ell area sixth graders would be Residents were very unhappywith the littering, equally familiar with the school when they -the rude behavior, the abusive language, became seventh, graders, it =me decided to When”eome of the carousers From the 8ode foun- tain overflowed onto the lawn of the methodlet church, the minister, Rr. Harris, counter- attacked end took them to court. He won and the soda fountain passed into oblivion, to become • laundromat, end currentlye fledglbg animal hospital. The historic Supreme Court decision of Ray 1954 outlawing separate schools for black end white children brought about an important change in the Clare Barton School. The River Road School wee closed, and the Negro children from this area entered Clare. Barton. This wee in September of 1955. Rise Trail, principal of River Road, end another.teacher From that school joined the Clare Barton Faculty end remained for many years.. Floyd.Ks,thews entered the ascendgrade thenend graduated from Clare Barton flve years later. Though the proportion of Negroee–14~–wae higher than et any of the other Rontgomery County elementary schools, integration wee achieved smoothly end happily. Whet about the River Road School? Today it ie • warehouse by the railroad tracks nest the.Hot Shoppe Jr. Rre. ~rgeret Stein came to Clara Barton in the early 50e end stayed for ten years. PNever before or since”, she seye “has my teaching given me so much satisfaction. The Cabin John children have respect end affection for their teachers. They have • close home unity. They ere, more then any other group of children I have knomn, e pleasure to teech,~. Rrs. Stein remembers coming to Clare Barton ae one of 16 or 18 teachers, when every room was full up, with two classes in the ell- purpose room. Where the perking lot ie now, there Bee • 2-storey prefab, with the cafeteria downstairs end two kindergarten rooms upstairs. “The war babies were upon us end we had Four big kindergartens”, she recalls. There wee • Student Counc/l~then, with representatives of every room down through the second goads. They really did things, setting policy, on lunchroom and safety rules end plennlng big events. I sew a picture of the Student Council. ~eybe times have changed but the kld= of Cabin John look the way they did 15 years ago. I could.even see Familiar family characteristics. Rrs. Stein loved the way the school looked in those days. There wee many huge old oaks along the front or the building end she used tb have class outside under the tree8 on beautiful afternoons. Her 8on attended fifth end sixth grades while hie mother wee teaching “but he largely ignored me during aches1 hours”. When Brookmont School opened in 1953 end again when Bannookburn opened in 1957, the enrollment atClare Barton dropped dramatically. In the mid 60’8 eight teachers were handling the whole teaching load, end classes had plenty of room. The l-storey eddltlon, begun in 1965, gave Clara Barton a total of twelve classrooms, an ell-purpose room, • kitchen, • library end offices. When the school Bee redediceted in April of lg67, Geraldine Shaw wee chairman of the program and John Fraser wee PTA president. There wee one yeer–Z962–when there we8 no sixth grade et Clare Barton. That Bee the year the, Pyle Junior High opened and ell the area schools moved their sixth grades to the Pyle building. ,mr. Goodeon was there, of course, with hie sixth graders. P~ny of the area schools were overcrowded that year end thle ~ae a may, to alleviate the situation. I don’t know hem,s end this account. ~ybe that’s because there Is no end–the history is still being written. move all the sixth graders to Pyle for that year. In 1968, for the Clare Barton Heritage Celebration, ~rJorie Craig and Lye Bedgley wrote a dramatic presentation, “Clare Barton Angel of mercy”, and a portrait of Clara Barton was unveiled by mrs. Charles Hartman. secretary of the Friends of Clare Barton. ~re. Pelueo’e teem recited the poem that Gary Pucker, end Eddie Got,herd, had written for the occasion. A CELEBRATION OF THINGS PRE_~T Clara Barton Elementary School hem • greet deal to offer the l?O children who walk through its doors every day. The seven full-time teachers share ideas and methods in order that each child may be treated as an individual. The ultimate goal is to provide an appropriate program for each child. The children arm instructed each week by epeciellsts in the fields of:muslc and physical education, end e math epecla!ist has orgenlzed s center for children to exPlore the manY arose of mathematics. There are scheduled l~brery , periods each week, and the children are urged, to use the library at any other time during th~ meek. Pupils eager to explore their envlronmentget s good start In the Dtscovory~ Room with the ‘*Concepts in Science” kits mhioh provide.the materials for stimulating young curiosities. Special programs such ee these are comp!ementedby extra-curricular activities such as the after-school recreetlon end the instrumental musicprogrems. Selected groups in such fields as drama and music ere invited to perform for the children, and teachers are.encouraged to aid In the childrenb development by providing field trips whenever possible.- ” One of Clare Barton’s greatest assets, aside from the teaching staff, is the Cabin John community. The people of the community ~ strongly support their school, end are very. : willing to volunteer their tlme to work with the children end for the children. Parents work in the library, ald children in reading groups, chaperone field trlps, beautify the school by plentlng flo=ers along the drive, and room mothers organize trAPs and claes~ parties–ell of which contribute to’providing a healthy and happy atmosphere in which the children of Clare Barton School can learn and prosper. Janlce Pelueo WRITE TO US The Village News welcomes letters to the Editor on any subjects relevant to our community. It can be reaction to something published here or your comments or suggestions about whetes going on or should be going on in Cabin John. ~ LOOK :11’~:~0 .T._~_~ Fu’r’I~. ~i In looking to the future, what happens at Clara Barton depends upon all members of the Cabin John Communlt~. In recent years we have seen dramatic academic achlevement gains, and We have seen the whoie community look wlth pride at Its school. With this solid groundwork established, we need to seek another ingredient that is of crucial im- portance to our children: A LOVE OF LEARNING by both young and old to include not only the academlc but also the creative, the ability to interact successfully with ochers, and an appreciation of and respect for the natural world around us. Learning does not start on page 3% and stop at the last paragraph on page 37. Learnlng is ~ contin- uous process for children whether they:are sitting at a desk readlng their lessons, exercising In gym, playing with friends after school, or helping with family chores. Mr. Kaplan has successfully begun de- veloping Clara Barton as a community school by introducing Volunteer ~ programs for library service, room mothers, and reading aides. These volunteer programs may be expanded to include arlthmetlc, science, and cultural arts which wlll provide opportunity for mothers and fathers nleghbors and grandparents to par- ticipate In !~he education of our children not ~ only In our homes and com unlty bu~ within school as well. If Clara Barton can continue to be the center of comnunity activities and can vibrate with theenthusias- tic involvement of each of us, it will be a model community schoolliln spirit as well as In name. Thls should be the goal of each of us: that our children experience, through out’own interest and involvement, the klnd of learnln~ that wlll prepare them for the 1980’s and 1990’s, an educa- tion of which we andthey can be proud as they face the problems and challenges of an exciting future. byH.

GARDENING C 0RNER There sa Je s sup Garden Pests and their Control The Mole and Mice Problem –Among the worst pests in this area are the moles and mice. Home remedies don’t seem to work too well. Our suggestion is that instead of trying to rid yomr- self of these pests, you provide pro- tection for your bulbs. You may fashion wire baskets from hardware cloth or you can ta”e coffee or lulce cans and with a punch-type c can opener make openings in the base for bulb roots t( g~ow through. Sink the can so that ~ the top is even with the surrounding soil, fill it up with good rich sell and olant your bulbs to the required depth. Then cover the rim with at least half an inch of good garden soil. The predators — Be careful ~n your use of insecticides that you do not kill off the predatore, your natural alZies in the garden. Chief among these are: Praying Mantis which lives on aphids and other injurious insects Lady Bugs whose larvae feed on aphids or scales Lacewings whose larvae ~’ so feed on aphids so much so that they are also called Aphld-Lions The Birds — The importahce of birds to a gar-~ner can’t be overstressed. Many of the common garden birds, es- peclallv wrens wat terrestial insects and gr~bs and so protect you from many of the more dangerous beetles and moths If we could get more birds and enoug predators in our gardens we would hane no insect proble$. So put out bird seed, grow plants and shrubs to attract birds to your garden and go lightly on the use of insecticides. ?????????????????????????????????????  IGHB0 S Karma and Richard Stevenson have recently moved from Georgetown to one of the new houses on 76thSt, Also on 76th St. are Walter and Janet Dence and their year old son Ross.
