The struggle for existence in which we are now engaged
will end victoriously for us in the near future.
Then, while the ink is still wet on the treaty, the problem
of building up the world will fall directly on our shoulders.
It is we who will be left, who must rise as one solid mass
determined to clear the blackened and charred embers of our
present civilization, determined to start, to see through, and to
finish the almost impossible task of building a new world.
Through keeping in mind the sacrihces made by those who
gave up everything at Bataan, Guadalcanal, and Tarawa in
order that our American ideals may remain sound, through
education and through religion, eventually we can achieve, if
it is our earnest desire, a perfect world.
We, the youth of today, will live in that world. It will
be ours. Its succcess or failure will, without doubt, depend
We know that we cannot create a perfect world, a Utopia
or a Shangri-Lap however, we can lay the solid, enduring
foundations of peace and security for a safe world.
To this world, to this time, to this effort, we dedicate this
The destinies of nations can be symbolized by hands which
have been inspired by the good teachings of those who have
gone before. The powerful, industrious hands of the laborer.
the sensitive, skilful hands of the surgeon, the watchful, pro-
tective hands of mothers, the tense, forceful hands of the base-
ball players, the slender, flexible hands of the pianist, all have
been guided and inspired by the performance of their worthy
predecessors. The progress of the world depends upon the
good created by these hands. Failure results from the evil and
the destruction created by greedy hands.
Hands build nations, maintain peace, and develop civili-
zations. Therefore, hands are the appropriate symbol for the
unceasing efforts of man towards the attainment of a perfect

OUR SUPERINTENDENT SPEAKS
I am grateful for the invitation to write a
brief message to you, for by so doing the link
connecting your lives with mine will be forged
more strongly. This gives me the opportunity
also to tell you a few of the things which are
very close to my heart and which are domi-
nating my thinking during this cataclysmic
period through which the world now is pass-
ing. It would be easy at this time for you to
allow yourselves to believe that civilization is
only a thin veneer that is now splintering away.
much as the veneer on a piece of cheap furniture
splinters away. It is against this feeling that I
would caution you.
It is going to be your task, as you go out
from your high school life, some to serve in
the Armed Forces, and others in industry, or in
further study, to assist in maintaining those
ideals for which civilization always has stood
by impressing them upon the minds of your
associates whose idealism may not be as firmly
entrenched as your own. At times you will
End it difficult. for in so doing you will be
called upon "to bear up under loss, to iight the
bitterness of defeat, and the weakness of grief.
to be victor over anger, to smile when tears
are close, to resist disease and evil men and base
instincts, to hate hate and to love love, to go
on when it would seem good to die. to seek
ever the glory and the dream, and to look up
with unquenchable faith in something ever more
about to be."
This is both your task and your oppor-
tunity. May you have the strength to carry

FROM DR. STEVJART
While the winning of the war is the matter
uppermost in our minds at the time this book
is being compiled. we are. nevertheless, thinking
of a postwar period and wondering what it will
he like. lt is a truism to state that the world
will be the kind of world we make it.
lt is well for us to realize that unpreparedness
for peace can bring almost as great a calamity
as unpreparedness for war. Unless we plan
wisely we are sure to have serious social mal-
It is greatly to your credit that you have been
giving attention to such problems as our for'
eign policy, our plans for a just and durable
peace, and conditions necessary for high levels
of employment after demobilization. The man-
ner in which these and similar problems are
solved will vitally affect your lives. Their solu-
tion will call for an extension of the personal
qualities of courtesy, kindliness, unseliishness,
courage and decency into our relationships with
other peoples and nations.
Dr. Hugh H. Stewart
I-low to promote understanding. good will
and peace, both at home and abroad, will be a
major problem facing the United Nations. It
is our fervent hope that each and every one of
you will make some worthy contribution.
Mr. Childs Miss l,ewis Mr. Addis
Vic:-Principal D an Advisor
The principle aim of our present life-and-death struggle
is the formation of a finer. .more secure and more democratic
world, endowed with ideals of freedom and equality. The
students of today are the citizens of tomorrow. It is their
training while in school that will greatly determine the
future, for a democracy cannot survive without liberally
educated, independently thinking people. In the hands of
the faculty lies the immense responsibility of moulding the
characters of thousands of young men and Women. Teachers
are the backbone and foundation of any educational system:
their positions are a vital and essential part of our war effort.
In times of peace, as well as war, a teacher's work entails
much more than the mere transferring of subject matter. It
involves guidance, patience, and understanding. A teacher is
a sincere friend and advisor to her many pupils. She not only
conducts classes but uses her skills in organizing and super-
vising clubs and extra-curricular activities. As a result of
years of study and experience, the teaching profession has
gained universal respect and admiration.
We owe a debt of inestimable gratitude to our faculty.
to the many men and women who have devoted their lives
toward the improvement and perfection of the youth of
America. With wisdom and foresight, they are helping to
create a democratic world in which peace and liberty shall
reign supreme, and ignorance and bigotry shall give way to
liberal education and independent thought.

We will build the world of tomorrow. We are very
fortunate, for ours is a bright unexplored future . . . we
will pioneer this world. We will plan and strive that others
may no longer find it necessary to fight a war to end all wars.
The present conflict is still raging, but we confidently
hope that victory is not far off. However, after the foe has
been defeated, the problem of world reconstruction will be
an even more diflicult and strategic task. Davis students.
along with the rest of the youth of America, are aware of
this tremendous job ahead of them. They know that it is
a job in which adult and youth alike must take an active
part. Some of the building will require actual manual labor:
the devastated civilizations of the war-ridden countries will
have to be entirely rebuilt. A great part of the reconstruc-
tion, however, will be done by the scientist, the doctor, the
teacher, and by a multitude of young men who are at present
receiving training in the armed forces.
Never before has the hand of opportunity knocked so
loudly at Youth's door. We must not only rebuild the
world, but must obtain and preserve neighborly relations,
stressing cooperation and understanding, with all the nations
of the world.
We seniors have already terminated our high school
education. Many of us will go on to higher schools of learn-
ing: others will directly enter the business world. All, how-
ever, will be united in purpose. Our lifetime, our future,
must be devoted to insuring peace and stability for the youth
of tomorrow, whether that youth is American, Russian, or
German. We must make certain that in our children's lives
war will be a thing seen only on the pages of a history book.
Look well, for among us may be the very leaders who
will triumph in establishing the world in which there will
truly be eternal peace on earth and good will to men.

Service is a predominant keynote in student activities at Davis.
This service is divided into three groups-that rendered to the school,
to the community, and to the national war effort. Service to the school
is carried on by the Marshals and by the Publicity, School Interests,
and Publications Committees, as well as by the many unorganized
groups ,of civic-minded students.
Se-rvice to the community is rendered by the students cofoperating
in voluntary projects. They help at the Ration Board or the Red Cross,
and they entertain at the Day Nursery and Memorial Homes. They
also participate actively in community drives. Davis students are re-
sponsible, to a great extent, for helping Mount Vernon fill its quota
in the stamp and bond drives, as well as in the scrap collection and
paper salvage campaign. In rendering service to the community, Davis
students also serve their country.
In the true spirit of American youth, they are ever-willing to do
their utmost to promote a worthy cause and to serve where they are

One of the greatest honors that can be bestowed upon an
American high school senior is admittance into the NA-
TIONAL HONOR SOCIETY. Since the birth of this
organization, twenty years ago, over 2,00,0 chapters have
miraculously spread throughout the United States, Alaska
and the Philippines. Through the encouragement of scholar-
ship, leadership, service and good character, hundreds of
Davis students have already proved themselves tthe worthy
builders of our new world.

Vv'hen we hear about the coming Daviskate
or the Ifootball Prom we don't rtalive that our
efhcient school government is rtsponsible for
them. In tune with our National Government.
Davis' governing body also has two legislative
houses: the G. O. COUNCII, is the higher
house. the HOMIQ ROOM RIiPRlZSI2N'l'A-
TIVIHS, the lower house. XVe students represent
the voting public and select those who will
serve in these houses.
The students in the Council consist ol' two
elected by the House of Home Room Represen-
tatives. and the rest elected semi-annually at
school elections. We, the voting public, also
elect two teachers to the Council. Among other
things, this group debates on the best way to
get student support for all school activities. and
it also decides what kind of recreation we stu-
dents will most enjoy.
The House of Home Room Representatives.
which consistes of one representative from each
home room, is a most vital part of the student
government, and a truly democratic body. The
representatives, elected by the pupils in their
home rooms, are the mediums which publicize
the ideas of the G. O.. and which also report
to the members of the home room new events
concerning the students. The Home Room
Representatives have been the active agents in
helping the Victory Corps get a successful start:
they campaign for and urge student support tor
salvage collections and for the war loan drives.
They have also rendered a tremendous service
by sending the News I,etter to the former Davis
boys now serving in the armed forces.
We are fortunate to have a democratic govern-
ment, for practicing democracy is the best way
to learn it.
Wheii a bewildered spohomore girl accident-
ally walked into Room 214 she wondered at
the all-male assembly. She very soon realized.
however, that she had. invaded the headquarters
of the BOYS' MARSHAL FORCE, She was
very much amaied to learn that the apparent
state of confusion here was actually deceiving.
lior this room, under the supervision of Miss
Brown and Miss Paclou. was one of the busiest
and most capable in the school: it was the cen-
ter of the thousand and one duties and services
of the boy marshals. Their activities were
efficiently carried out during this past year under
Seymour Solomon and William White, who
served as head marshals.
Included in the line of the mashal's duty is
the collection of attendance cards, the distribut-
ing of stamps and bonds, and the maintenance
of order in the lunchrooms. halls, and locker .

A boy in Room 'SIB would undoubtedly ex-
perience the same feeling of bewilderment as the
unfortunate sophomore girl who stumbled into
Room ZI4: for H3 is the only all-girl Home-
room in the school. and is also the center of
activities of the GIRLS' MARSHAL FORCE.
Under the supervision of Miss Lewis they per-
form duties similar to those of the boy marshals:
moreover, they efiiciently carry out their many

from their assigned duties. the girl marshals also
render helpful services to teachers and students.

Always Lending A Helping Hand
New-comers to Davis always receive a hearty welcome fron:
the "big sisters" of the Hilltop. who are known as the HOMI2
ROOM ADVISORS. Membership in this group is determined by
Miss Lewis. who selects from each home room one girl who pos-
sesses the necessary qualifications to serve. The Davis "big sisters"
give freely ol their time and effort to work for the best high school
This group, which has no officers because its members are all on
an equal basis. is considered an official representative of the office.
lhe girls. during the year, serve on various committees designed to
promote a friendlier atmosphere in the school. Bi-annually they
give a dinner for girls who are new to the school.
The amiable "big sisters" are always on the job. and have been
very successful in helping Davis girls overcome many problems.

"Peanuts, popcorn, cracker-jack. ice-cream"
are the familiar items which identify the ALPHA
TAU DELTA girls at the football and base-
ball games. This group under the supervision
of Miss Breining sells refreshments at athletic
meets to raise money for the G. O.
Because of the dilliculty in obtaining these
articles during the past year, the girls extended
their activities to other fields. They contributed
baskets of food at Thanksgiving and Christmas
and they also sponsored activities for the young-
sters at the Nursery Day School.
Headed by Gloria Orsenigo, President. and
with Margie Reichgott serving as Secretary and
Vice-President, Alpha Tau Delta during this
past year rendered much valuable service to tht'
school and community.

200 hours in dramatic work . . . staging, acting,
directing, costuming, or ticket-selling. The Davis
chapter of the Thespians has had a very interesting
history, for it was the first high school organiza-
tion to enroll as a group in the Victory Corps. It
was also the first group to qualify for member-
ship in the "High School Theatres for Victory"
program, a newly organized movement which
includes all dramatic groups actively participating
in the war effort.
Wartime shortages may have limited the num-
ber of productions the Thespians have been able
to sponsor. but, they have not limited the Thes-
pians' activities: the new duties of this group come
under the heading "Patriotism."

The bugle sounded and there was a call to
colors. And the nation responded with a group
of ready, willing and able soldiers, sailors and
marines. But the high schools also heard the call.
and answered with a large group of students who
were willing to organize, supervise, or participate
in any home front activity designed to speed up
the final day of victory. Symbolically enough.
this group was called the VICTORY CORPS. It
was organized in Davis by Mr. Addis and a con-
scientious student committee. Their combined
efforts helped to coordinate in this active body all
student activities directed toward the war effort.
Today the corps stand united, on call, and ready
to serve at a summons from their country, com-
munity or school.

"TOMORROW, TOMORROW AND TOMORROW"
There is never a dull moment in the DRAMATIC
SOCIETY, which is under the able leadership of Mrs.
MacDonald. Modern one-act plays such as "The Bayfield
Picture", "Chimney-Piece", and "Message From Bataan"
were presented 'during this past year by the group. "Maid
of France", given in the assembly. was most roundly ap-
plauded by students and faculty alike.
Not only does the Society give small productions for its
own enjoyment and education. but it also holds theatre par-
ties. During the past year the Society saw Shakespeare's
famous "Othello" in New York. The Society is made up
. There are twenty-Eve active members
chosen by tryout, the "Green-Room Players", a waiting list
of twelve members, and a capable stage crew of ten people.
The purpose of this dramatic organization is to further an
interest in dramatics, to work with the tools of the theatre.

Mount Vernon's boys and girls in service can't very well

is accomplished through the medium of the Hilltop's

paper published each month by Mrs. Bailey and a hard-
working student committee. The News Letter contains all

They say a woman can't keep a secret. but the MAROON
AND WHITE EDITORIAL STAFF boasts a number of
feminine editors and staff members. who all did their work
diligently, and at the same time managed to keep the theme
of the book "mum," Of course the masculine part of the
staff contributed to the "silence campaign." too. Svince the
theme this year, and the whole setup of the book. including
the photograph on the cover, is entirely different. it was
thought that you subscribers would enjoy the annual much
more if it was a kind of "surprise package."
It is very probable that you may have seen any one of
the workers racing about the school, trying to dig up "info"
for club writeups, and you may later have seen him working
furiously, in the 'crafts' room of 3l6. trying to beat a deadline.
Also, during all this activity. you may have heard him mutter
something to himself about "Handsl Hands! What have they
got to do with the Glee Club?" ettc. This puzzling utterance.
however. was doubtless clarified as you read the first few pages
of the annual. and noticed that our theme was based on Hands-
the ways in which they will contribute to a post-war society.
You then realized that the poor unfortunate was attempting to
connect the theme and his respective article.
But. whether it was the tireless hands of the typists pre-
paring copy. or the busy hands of our two faculty advisors, Miss
Nourse and Mr. Doyle. or the active hands of the workers, your
Maroon and VVhite Editorial Staff worked long hours to bring
von a book despite wartime restrictions. We worked as a team,
and our teamwork has provided gratifying results.

In politics and business. it is the man behind the finished
product that is important. Unpublicized and unknown, he does
his daily task, getting his only reward from his own satisfaction
of perfection and a job well done.
Such an organization is the MAROON AND WHITE
BUSINESS BOARD. The only time you heard of it was
probably when a beseeching plea for the dollar you owe or a
quiet reprimand for your failure to show up at the photographers
was issued. Yet. without this organization, your yearbook
The business board is not a very large organization. Aside
from the representatives in each home room. there is a regular
staff of only five members. The duties of the staff are to keep
all records of finances, and photograph appointments, handle the
subscription money as it comes in from the rooms, see that the
books are delivered to you at the end of the year, and then sit
back complacently in the knowledge of a task well done.
Through hard work and careful managing, the yearbook
has not been "in the red" for several years. Any profit is set
aside for the time when the cost is more than the capital. This
is one of the best organized groups in the school and serves as
an excellent example of what can be accomplished by members
of the student body.

Hollywood has a tendency to portray newspaper work as
being extremely glamorous and entirely romantic, but there is
a lot more to editing a newspaper than meets the eye. The
HI-NEWS EDITORIAL STAFF can certify to that, for, they
know that there is also an excess of "blood, sweat, and tears"-
mostly sweat, and plenty of eager. energetic hardwork attached
to putting out the Hi:lltop's newspaper. Their system seems to
be quite successful, however, for each year the "Davis Hi-News"
wins high honors in the inter-scholastic press contests.
Perhaps the paper's success has been due to the efficient staff
management and the manner of choosing the potential staff
members. For all members receive appointment on the basis
of their literary skill: there are try-outs held each term. The
would-be journalists receive regular news assignments, and if
their write-ups hint at any latent genius, these creative souls
become a part of the Hi-News Editorial Board. As their skill
increases, the members have many opportunities for advancement:
an editorship is a mark of merit.
Whatever is the secret behind the success of the Hi-News,
the paper has lent a decided note of distinction to Davis. It is
at present under the faculty sponsorship of Mr. Smith, and has
lived up to its past record in winning numerous prizes and in
publishing accurately all the "Davis Doings."

Wall Street may have its outstanding financial wizards but
Davis runs a close second. Some of our Morgenthau's and J. P.
Morgan's are the glorious representatives of the HI-NEWS
BUSINESS BOARD. Without their thrifty. efficient business
management, the newspaper could not exist: no enterprise is
successful without its corresponding business board.
Membership on this board is achieved as a result of keen
competition. Those who would add their name to the illus-
trious staff must obtain at least three inches of advertising space
from merchants: the merchants may be inhabitants of Mount
Vernon or California or even of Oshkosh. lt is the final achcieve-
ment, the impressive acquirement of the space, 'which is all-
important. For the Hi-News, like all other successful news-
papers. depends a great deal upon its advertisers. The ambitious
staff, however, can never sit back and "rest upon its laurels."
For the members have the exciting problem of obtaining suf-
ficient "space" for eac-h edition of the paper, and of remaining
on the board, as each issue proceeds on its merry way.
Work on the business board provides invaluable experience
for all interested students. For the staff helps to set up ads
to take care of bills, and also to take charge of circulation.
Perhaps the training this group receives from the able and
willing "Uncle" Charlie Altschuler, faculty advisor, will provide
them with a great boost into the business world. And we
wouldn't be at all surprised if today's Business Board execu-
tives were tomorrow's Wall Street financiers.

l,is1enT XVhat are those sounds emanating from the large auditorium?
Perhaps they are the groans of students suffering the after-effects of re-
gents . , . but no . . . upon opening the auditorium door, we are
greeted hy an impressive sight: any one of Davis' three musical organiza-
tions is practicing and perfecting its talents for future public performances.
Many Hne musicians. some of whom are already professionals, make up the
BAND. ORCHESTRA and CHOIR. There is George Douglas and his
vibrant saxophone. and over there at the piano are Dick Hyman and
Charlotte Stolmaker who really make the ebony and white keys fly.
Or. perhaps, it is a rehearsal of Mr. Nielsen's
all-girl chorus. which boasts such soloists as
Gloria Muddell, Margaret Pfeiffer, and Kirsten
Hansen. This group has brightened many as-
semblies with their performances.
Then again the band might be responsible for
the musical reverbation. For, with Mr. l.icht
supervising, it meets twice a week to prepare for
the big events of the season. Their peppy
marches and handsome Maroon and White uni-
forms have greately enlivened football games and
aided in cheering our team on to victory. They
have also responded willingly to calls "beyond
their usual line of duty." Their great' perfor-
mance at Proctor's for the war loan rally was a
typical reply to these calls. The rally featured
such specialists as Eddie Riznyk and his singing
clarinet. John D'Angelo and his Xylophone. and
Donald Rhind. who revived many old favorites
on his accordion.
Or it might be the orchestra which is response
ihle for the music. Every Tuesday and Thurs-
day we can watch the orchestra rehearsal-some
50 students-under the baton of Mr. Nielsen.
We may watch the flying bows of viiolinists such
as concert-master Otto Menzel. or assistant con-
ductor Sarah Bates, or we may see the agile-
tingered flute players such as Dick Sagman. We
may also watch and listen to the accomplishments
of the puffing trumpeters. husky drummers. and
energetic trombonists. They practice tirelessly
for P. T. A. concerts, graduations and rallies.
In the future when the fanfare of trumpets
or the melodious strains of a song greet your
ears. you may know that the Davis musical
swing shift is going full force.

FAVORITE SONG-"Sunday, Monday, or Always"
"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." But Jack has nc
opportunity to become dull while in Davis, for here at the Hilltop there
are a number of clubs to provide the diversion andl entertainment which he
needs to balance his scholastic attempts. Nc matter what his interests or
talents are, he will find an outlet for them in one of these many extra-
curricular organizations. If Jack, or any other student, is language-minded
he may join either one of the French clubs, or the Spanish or Italian clubs,
and under the guidance of the club sponsor he can converse with other
students and improve his proficiency in that language. A knowledge of the
tongues of all our world neighbors will do much to strengthen our relations
with them as we confer with them, and otherwise work to promote permanent
peace, at the close of the present war.
If Jack has a talent for mathematics, there is a club in which he may
exercise and improve the ability which, in later years, he may employ as his
contribution in designing and planning world reconstruction. He has also
many recreational facilities to help him spend his leisure time enjoyably and
profitably, he may join the Dance Club, Rifle Club, Camera Club, Bowling
Club, or any of the numerous other organizations.
All of these clubs play an inconspicuous but extremely important role
in the life of the high school student. They constitute a major step in his
development from student to adult, for he will have an excellent foundation
for his social, cultural, and diplomatic relations with his friends, business
associates and global neighbors in the world of tomorrow.

"Time marches on" and records each new day on the

tries to stimulate the study of history through talks given
by students: these talks cover topics from pigeons to current

With these words the affirmative speaker Gnishes a debate and thus ends another meeting of the eighteen-
year-old DEBATING SOCIETY. At every meeting a topic of national, international or local importance is
discussed in arliamentary, yet fiery fashion. However, the open forum which follows the debate and' which is
the time n the debaters are questioned by the members of the Society, is a period when arguing reaches a
red-hot peak and parliament'ary procedure usually has to be dropped.

Stand by! We're on the air! . . . Who? Why, the WFAS DISCUSSION CLUB, of course. Every month at
least two members of this progressive club meet with other Westchester high school students to debate and discuss
current topics and problems. With just a "twist of the wrist" and a turn of the radio dial, we can hear the
Davis master-minds in action. Just during this past year a group of student's from the club did the club and
Davis "right" proud, when they were chosen to take part in a nation-wide broadcast on the Columbia School
of the Air. .
Keeping up the club, however, recently provided quite a bit' of difficulty, for the wartime shortages hit the
Discussion Club when its former sponsor, Mr. Bartlett, became Lieutenant Bartlett of the United States Army.
The club remained for a while without a sponsor. However, it takes a mighty thing to discourage a Davis man.
and true to form, the students took up an energetic search for a new sponsor. While George Goodman tire-
lessly petitioned various faculty members, Mr. Caville temporarily took charge of the group. Mr. Avery later
assumed the permanent role of faculty advisor for the club, and under him, it is functioning, at present, efficiently

ever. today, due to wartime restrictions. this event has been replaced by simple but important
demonstrations with the materials on hand. code practice, and numerous discussions concernf

metallic ring of fencing foils echoing through the halls
of Davis. On closer surveyance, it can be noted that
the exponents of the "Sport of Gentlemen" under the
very able sponsorship of Mr. Lindsey are gathered to
improve their prowess. Because of the war. which has
been directly responsible for a shortage of foils. the
attempts of the members of the FENCING Cl.UB to
become skilled in the art of fencing have been somewhat
hampered. However. with the few available foils and
some homemade wooden substitutes. these enthusiasts are
carrying on. Although the club does not engage in
competition with outsiders. the more advanced members
contend in bitterly contested matches. which serve as
teacher and entertainer for the other :lub members.

in stamp collections, a welcomed opportunity in the
form of a STAMP Cl,UB has been established. Under
llonald Sohn, its most recent President, the exchanging.
selling and auctioning of stamps have netted astonishing
results and also gained worthwhile experience for th:
student. Other items that have found their places on
the program are the contests and quizzes that are held
quite frequently. The members are discovering that
from these and the actual handling of stamps. new and
exciting facts are being continually uncovered outside

students acquainted with stamps, but the many others
who have plans for starting their own collection and are
anxious to gain some knowledge beforehand.

When the youth of today assume their place in the postwar
world, they also assume the responsibility of remodeling it.
This remodeling will place before them many problems that
will put their competence to the acid test. There will be situa-
tions that will need the expert treatment of an ambitious, far-
sighted and reconstruction-educated youth.
When we think of preparing youth for this monstrous task.
we think of means of shaping their hands so that they, in turn,
can better shape the world. The fate of civilization rests with
these hands. The actions not only of statesmen and business-
men, but of all the people, will lay the foundations of this ciivil-
ization. If the hands are skilful, the foundations will be strong,
and capable of withstanding a good many storms. If not, we'll
face more wars and more depressions.
Compared with matters so important as this, sports may
appear insignificant and unrelated. However, they can serve
not only as an engaging pastime for millions of Americans,
both young and old, but also as a means of inculcating some
valuable character traits in the youth of the nation. For when
youth are meeting opponents and when they are learning the
need for teamwork and the importance of the individual in
sports activities, they are being faced with many of those ele-
ments that will try them later on in life. Sports emphasize the
kind of conduct that calls for cooperation, consideration of
the other fellow, and self-reliance, qualities which later will
stand youth in good stead. .
We know that experience is a good teacher. and this, simply
speaking, is precisely the role sports can play in reconstructing
the postwar world. They can serve as a proving ground for
a youth whose hands will shape the future of the world for
the generations of tomorrow.
FOOTING ON TO FAME
Davis has seen many brilliant seasons in the past and
will probably see many seasons more successful than
that of 1943. However. future Davis teams will have
to go a long way to equal the rugged defense that our
FOOTBALL TEAM showed this year. This is obvious
wheh a quick glance at' their record will show that no
team defeated our charges by more than one touchdown.
At Roosevelt, Russ Doyle's men showed real fight when
they took the game out of the bag in the closing
minutes, when a pass from Sergeant to North netted a
score. Captain Walt Brockway's sterling defensive play
was more than evident when the team battled Gorton
to a scoreless tie.
The Davismen rose brilliantly in a 21-0 triumph
over Yonkers Central, with the attack led by the plung-
ing of Don Trischett and the shifty running of Godfrey
Bellavigna. The squad never hit their stride again and
succumbed to the Port Chester and Pelham elevens. It
was the educated toe of Dick Auricchio that saved more
than one scoring threat. The intra-city championship
remained a draw as a favored Edison team was tied by
our gallant team. A blocked kick picked up by John
Macri produced a 6-6 tie. To the disappointment of
all, a 60-yard pass spelled defeat for a hard-fighting
Davis team and a touchdown for New Rochelle in the
last game of the year.
Such names as Brockway. North, Sergeant. Purchler.
Butler, Merlin, Trischett, Auricchio, Bellavigna, Macri,
and Schuler will not be easily forgot'ten.

When the football team trots out onto the field to
begin a game, it is usually met with a thunderous ovation
from the stands. To see that this enthusiasm dosen't
wane. as well as to chime in with their own little bil.
is the chief function of the CHEERLEADERS.
The cheerleaders lend their vocal support to the Davis
cause throughout the whole game. They keep the crowd

to remind them that the school is back of them. When
the team is making a drive down the Held to the
opponent's goal line, or digging in for a last-ditch de-
fense of its own goal line. a little moral support from
the grandstand often spurs the players on to a winning

THE ADDED TOUCH
The performance of the TWIRLERS before Davis
football games has come to be almost as much a part of
the Saturday afternoon scene as the game itself. The
strutting of the 30-odd twirlers about the field, manip-
ulating their batons in graceful fashion, presents a strik-
ing picture. As a preliminary to the game the grace and
finesse exhibited by the twirlers contrasts vividly with
the oncoming tussle of titans. It adds variety to the
program, for as Shakespeare once said: "Variety is the
spice of a football ga - - " er - - well. he said something.
Anyway. rain or shine, the twirlers are out there enter-
taining the crowd and paving the way to the big event
with their fancy prancin' and skillful swingin' of the
However, their activities are not confined strictly to
the football field. A few members will occasionally
assume the garb and gadgets of the trade and go through
a few antics to liven up an assembly program or to add
zing to a football rally. In this capacity, they lent
their efforts on February 4 of this year to the 4th War
Loan Drive. The occasion was a program put on by
Davis students at Proctor's Theatre, which succeeded in
raising over 536,000 in war bond subscriptions.
The twirlers also participat'e in parades where they
make up an important part of the Davis exhibition. This
year, for example, they strutted their stuff in a parade
which opened the Third War Loan Drive.

Very often the onlooker at a football game has diffi-
culty following the imbroglio that ensues after a quarter-
back calls for a line plunge, or during a punt runback.
This is especially true when the action is going on at
the opposite end of the Held. I-lowever. Davisites have
learned to overcome this difficulty by glancing toward
the north end of the field where big whit'e numbers on
a red background keep them informed of the "vital
statistics." As you may well imagine, these numbers
don't jump into the appropriate slots by themselves.
For in back of the scoreboard we have the SCORE-
BOARD SQUAD. a group of boys whose job- it is to
report quickly and accurately from their remote position
the results of the play. The secret of their efficiency lies
in keeping a man at the sidelines right on top of the
play, who lets them know just what happened by a
system of signals. This signal relay usually works fast
enough so that' by the time the grandstander looks to the
scoreboard for help, the number of yards gained or lost
has already been posted.
Part of the enjoyment of a football game lies in
following each play closely. A yard or two often means
the difference between a first down and giving up pos-
session of the ball. With the aid of the scoreboard squad
the onlookers are able to interpret these details for a
more complete understanding and appreciation of the

The Davis SXVlMMlNG TEAM climaxed a season during
which they had lost but two league tilts by clinching the
county meet and championship at New Rochelle. No less
than four firsts were won: "Hank" Kolpin in the 50-yard
"free", Bob Goldthorpe in the IOO-yard "breast", George
Scanlon in the 220-yard "free". and Milt Aitken in the dive
-these added up to spell a spectacular victory for the
Maroon squad. The whole team deserves credit for this
unique performance which brought Davis its only cham
pionship team to date.

Although the teams were weather-bound for a number of
weeks. the FIELD HOCKEY season finally got underway. After
organization of teams. there was a weeks practice for the inter-
class competition. Then forwards. half-backs, full-backs and
goaltes. put the hockey sticks to good use. The forwards learned
to dribble, the hall-backs to drive. and the goalies to stop the
hall. Sophs, Juniors. and Seniors rallied their best efforts for
each goal. The keenest game of the sesaon was fought between
the Seniors and the Juniors. This game decided the hnal out-

Like the track season, the BASEBALL season at the
Hilltop had not been launched when the 'AMaroon and
White" went to press. However. Davisites, accustomed
to top-notch teams for the last five years, were looking
forward to another championship. For when the Davis
nine hears the cry of "play ball" and go to bat in the
first inning of the seasons opener at Yonkers, it will try
to bring the VV. I. A. A. Championship home to Davis
for the sixth year in succession.
The record of the coming season could not very well
be predicted though. This years team was entirely made
up of new faces. not a member of last year's varsity
having returned to bolster it.

KEEP YOUR EYE
Those who are at all interested in Davis athletics will
probably never forget this year's varsity BASKETBALL
TEAM. Its record will certainly not stand out as one
of the best in Davis' history. However. there is no
particular shame attached to it, for not one of last year's
fine squad had returned to support it. We can see that
when Herb Ramsey, Chuck Sposato. Jim Mclntyre. Ed
Lara-ia and Jake Sullivan took to the floor in the early
part of the season, they not only lacked height and weight.
but also were hungry for experience. The boys weren't
hopeless, though. as they can boast a hard-fought victorv
over a favored Edison five. The intra-city contest was
fought right down to the wire, but the little Davis ftve
was not to be denied in protecting the prestige of the
Hilltop. The Maroon emerged victorious by the score of
36-35. In the White Plains game, the boys again rose
to traditional heights, throwing a scare into the county
champs by hard-pressing them throughout the whole game.
A last minute heave was the only break that saved White
Plains from defeat, the game ending 42-40 in favor of
Outstanding in the Davis scoring column was Chuck
Sposato, who with his continual sharp-shooting managed
to keep nets all over the county busy. Herb Ramsey's hook
shots paced the team to many a victory. as did Jim
McIntyre's sets. Ed Laraja was there to set the boys up,
and wasnt shy in the scoring column either. Other out-
standing courtmen were Joe Hammond, Joe Vincento.
Albert DeSantola, Isaia Carucci, and fighting Jake Sul-
livan. whose induction into the U. S. Army in midseason
was a hard blow to the team.

"Hit it! Hit it!" resounds from the girls' gym. Once
again two teams are battling tooth and nail in the inter-
class VOLLEY BALL contest. After a week's practice
of serves and vollies the class teams launch a campaign
against each other. Each team plays every other team.
This year there was one casualty-Gloria Orsen-igo broke
a finger, although many other girls had stiff muscles.
After a successful campaign, the Senior 2 team. under
Lisheth Hansen. won the Maroon volley letters. The
other teams claim the Senior 2's had more practice, but
the Senior Z's say they are superior volleyball players.
After the result of the contest they seem to be right.

Dear God, We pray with faith in Thee
To speed the day of victory,
That once again our boys may toil
At home upon their native soil:
That all may live in peace once more
Apart from fear and dread of war.
With humble heart, on bended knee
We ask that all men may be free:
That lives be spared to mould and build
The fine things which our foes have killed:
That all throughout the world shall know
Thy love shall stay while hate must go.
