Mr. Larson is a graduate of the University of lowa, where he also earned his Master's degree. He had served as a Superintendent in lowa schools since l922, had been a teacher of education, had taught courses in school finances at lowa State College to other superinten- dents, and, therefore, is fully capable of administering our school af- fairs. Mr. Larson offered his educational abilities in both World Wars. He served as Head of the Technical Training Department and as Chief of the Information and Educational Branch of the l3th Air Force, He directed the publication of twenty-seven newspapers in the Army Over- seas, so that he understands the needs of our school publications. Mr. Larson, an active officer, adviser, and member of many educa- tional associations, had vital experience with the P.T.A. in Iowa. Con- sequently, he is able to understand the problems of our useful P.T.A. It is also necessary for a well-rounded educator to understand student actions. Here we find that Mr. Larson had been largely responsible for the inauguration of a successful citizenship school which he had di- rected. ' So you see, Mr. Larson, we have in you above-par guidance, and we are grateful that you are among us. ' THE 1947 CLASS Page four IORDAN L. LARSON IFORIEWORI Another year has rolled around, bringing with it the i947 edition of HMAROON AND WHITE." On its pages, we have tried to show the true spirit and character of Davis to all who read it. Our clubs, sports, dances, and plays, as well as our scholastic achievements are there for all to see. The theme of this year's annual is Time-Time which rules our lives, both in and out of school, with an iron hand. The book is divided, as the day is, into MORNING, AFTERNOON, and EVENING. lOr, as students might put it, "Before Lunch," "After Lunch," and "l-lurray, We're Freel"l From the first cruel ring of the alarm clock which awakened us in the morning, Time took over, leading us to school, from one classroom to the next, and home again. lt told us when to eat, when to play, when to study. As Time goes by, the years we spent at Davis will be brought back as we leaf through the pages of the book. We will forget the long hours of homework, cramming for exams, and the mad rush through the halls to get to class before the bell rang, Instead, we will remember the swell kids we met, our really wonderful teachers who put as much fun as they could into the routine of classroom work, and that glorious moment when we received that long-strived-for diploma at graduation. After we leave Davis, our lives become separate roads, each going in a different direction, but we shall always have in common the memory of the three years spent at the grand old "institution on the hill."

'L ui IJ ' v , ' ' I ' -Q QQ KQUJQCJ CVQHIQ To the students and teachers of Davis, it has been a common occurrence to see Miss Catharine Rhodes, Assistant Superintendent-of-Schools, in the halls and classrooms of our school. Upon her shoulders rests the burden of correcting any ir- regularities occurring in the operation of our school system. Miss Rhodes was the former very efficient head of the Department of Mathematics, and in that position was esteemed and well-liked by former Davis students. lt is, therefore, evident that Miss Rhodes, who has devoted a great deal of her life- time to the trials and tribulations of education, brought honor to Davis High School when she at- tained her present position. We like to think that we have a greater claim on her time than students of other schools have. Students in other schools than ours became more intimately acquainted with Miss Rhodes' elo- quence and charm during the year she served as Acting Superintendent-of-Schools. We salute you, Miss Rhodes, for the excellent service you have given us, and for your continued loyalty to the A. B. Davis High School, and the Mount Vernon public school system, our utmost devotion and praise go to our friend, Miss Rhodes. All Davisites of the graduating class of l947 have thought of Mr. james A. Cullen as a good friend, a good sport, and a hard working pro- Page ten gressive administrator. We, who have known him for the two and a half years that he has been the principal of our school have felt priv- ileged to honor him for his efforts to bring to us the most modern methods of teaching. He has been striving not only to maintain the high scholastic standards of our school, but also to further the advances and benefits previously made in the field of sports. Although Mr. Cullen was acquainted with the students of Davis only by way of his former experience as head of the Summer High School, it did not take long for us to feel that he was our friend. The cooperation which existed between the new principal and the students amazed many, at Mr. Cullen's request, attend- ance by the student body at affairs such as football games, basketball games, school dances and plays was increased to a maximum by leaps and bounds. A stronger and more lasting bond of friend- ship between the principal and the stu- dent was fast becoming the mode in Mount Vernon's largest high school. His whole hearted participation in the Annual Student-Faculty Softball games was pos- itive proof of his friendliness. The students of Davis honor and ap- preciate you, Mr. Cullen, and wish you the best of success. Cgfze Wzlsest Gounsefffors of Did you ever try to get an interview with Mr. Childs? Small chance you had. You probably found at least twelve impatient people waiting, but he was in conference with someone else. iHis poor receptionistll No wonder he was so busy. Look- ing at the list of his activities, one might think we had six Mr. Childs. Besides heading the cheer- leaders Irahl rahll and supervising lunch rooms, Mr. Childs took care of what would otherwise be 750 lost Davis boys. It was hard to believe that he got all those things done in a twenty-four hour day, yet, with all his rushing, he never lost his sense of humor. Were you wondering why people were stand- ing outside that tiny room? It looked like a Brit- ish queue, didn't it? Well, it wasn't. It was merely a line of Davisites outside Mr. Addis' office, trying to get their programs changed. Did Mr. Addis change them? If it was possible, for he aims to MR. CHILDS MISS please, and 99 times out of IOO he does. Imagine yourself with ISOO programs to be figured out. What a nightmare! Picture yourself after you had filled them out and "drop-take" slips began pour- ing in. I-lorrorsl Somehow, Mr. Addis managed to satisfy almost all of us, so we said "Thanks". There is no need to identify Miss Lewis for she is well-known. The girls knew her as Dean, lwhat a job that isll , but that wasn't her only claim to fame at Davis. Many a boy and girl has been helped through college by the Davis Fund, one of Miss Lewis' pet projects. Remember when you were a Sophomore I and felt lost? The Home Room Advisers, headed by Miss Lewis, helped you get into the swing of things, All the little things that were so important, but escaped your notice, were taken care of by the woman of the hour, Miss Lewis, LEWIS MR.

Re- member the list of rules regarding "shall" and "will"? lt was enough to make you stop, wonder, and probably do a little ex- claiming under your breath. Still the Eng- lish department under the direction of Miss Brower went on. Someday, who could tell, the millennium might come when all the aspects of English would not be a deep dark secret to any Davis student. Did you know that the gender of flowers is feminine? What you didn't learn in Mrs. Redka's Spanish class! El Espanol wasn't the only language full of stumbling blocks, though. lf you wanted to bring the wrath of Miss Macdougall down on your head, you forgot to place the Latin verbs at the end of sentences, that's all. Despite everything, it was a wonderful feeling when you Hcomprenclio El Espanol." lWhom are we kidding?l Why was it that some people, not men- tioning names, persisted in saying Colum- bus discovered America in i942 or that Benjamin Franklin wrote the Monroe Doc- trine? Come to think of it, who did? All joking aside, it was enough to make poor Chris or the Pilgrims wonder if it was worth the effort. Evidently Mrs. Hiller and other members of the History Depart- ment thought so as they struggled to pen- etrate our thick scalps. After you finally mastered "two times twof' you thought you were through with Math. But nooool Then you had to draw pentagons, solve equations with the factor theorem and do other mathematical proc- esses, obviously taught to help you fill out your future income tax return. However you looked at it, math could be and us- ually was puzzling. Ask some students of Miss Brown, Miss Cleveland, or the dis- ciples of Einstein. That ticking sound that you heard as you walked down the hall didn't mean that school had finally gotten the best of you. lt was just the pupils of Miss Williams trying to type ninety words a minute. Try- ing, that is! That was also a joke, sonl Far be it from us, however, to have discour- aged the future private secretaries of the future business tycoons. How could they have missed with such teachers as Miss Creekpaum and Mr. Sundermann? The odors that drifted from the science laboratories weren't exactly Chanel No. 5 to people in the halls. The young scien- tists who stirred up the concoctions cer- tainly had strong constitutions. They must have been oblivious to everything but dreams of emulating Pasteur or Koch. Mr. Bunker, recently retired, contributed im- measurably in helping to fulfill those dreams. The students were fortunate in having Mr. Russell to take Mr. Bunker's place as head of the Science Department. All levity aside, Davis teachers are a wonderful group of people. To them we should like to express a sincere "thank you" for their guidance through the past.

H V - -if -- fow short Qui' gfappy czgs ppear Did you ever have the unfor- tunate experience of acquiring a headache five minutes before a geometry test? At those crucial moments, when all courage left us, it was Mrs. Morgan, nurse and head of the Davis Medical Staff, who informed us that the head- ache was not quite so severe as it seemed. For saving face and con- science, Davis students owed Mrs. Morgan a great deal Chest X-ray examinations given to l5OO stu- dents, were just one small part of Mrs. lVlorgan's work. She fair- ly flew through the halls on her medical missions. ' The "Safety-first" posters for the' school parade in May were re- sults of a carefully planned pro- gram by the Davis Art Depart- ment. The hard-working artists have always been none other than lvlr, Dodds and lvliss Nourse, the latter superintending the art work for the "Maroon and Vifhitef' OTHER TEACHERS lTopl Miss Sherman, Mr. Nielsen, Miss Nourse, Mr. Dodds, Mrs. Morgan, Mr. Oswald, Miss St. john, Miss Taylor Students had more opportunities this year than ever before, to attend operas during school time. Mr. Nielsen made arrange- ments for them to be excused. Mr. Singer, band and orchestra conductor, a newcomer to Davis, filled the vacancy left by Mr. Licht when the latter was appointed Music Supervisor. The Home Economics pupils under the direction of Miss Sherman and Miss Redmond, gained practical experience in serving, cooking, and cafeteria management. Last, but certainly not least, was the Physical Education De- partment. We missed Miss Wight and Mr. Coffin, both of whom, we are sorry to say, were retired because of illness. As- sisting in the two departments were Miss Onoda and Mr. Elder. Their efforts were concentrated on helping to build a physi- cally fit America. Page fozcrteen Mr. jewell arrived at Davis in September, l945, from the Nichols junior High, when there was need for a biology teacher. He participated in many sports during his college days, and was especially enthusiastic about football. This fall be acted as assistant coach for the football team, and helped the new coach, Mr. Elder, get established. He is shown with his family on the opposite page. Mr. Copp, a Phi Beta Kappa graduate from Colby College, Maine, is studying for his master's degree at Columbia Uni- versity. When he isn't engrossed in his studies, he enjoys play- ing on his trumpet, and is a regular member of Fred Pisani's Band. He has even played in vaudeville at Loew's Theatrel Dr. Landis, always a good sport, gave a peppy electioneering talk for her candidate, Mr. Caville, at the Ci. O. nominating convention held in December. Her Bulletin Board Committee this year arranged very attractive, colorful displays in Davis halls. Most of Miss Taylor's gym students probably never guessed that she has a lovely singing voice. After receiving her degree' from Columbia University, she started taking voice lessons and now sings in the Vernon Heights Congregational Church Choir. Miss Waltheir is a go-getter and a hard worker. She has sponsored the junior Red Cross for many years. She spends many hours overtime packing up bottles to deliver to C-rasslands. Her spare time, Saturdays and Sundays, is spent on her upstate' farm. Mr. Phillips, dearly loved by all of us who prefer to call him "Pop", is a wizard at the game of chess. His clever coaching has kept his chess team second to none in the county. When Mr. Avery is finished teaching for the day, he rushes home to Ossining and his family. He has a very attractive wife whom he met while they were both attending Cornell Universi- and tvvo lovely children with whom he loves to spend his free hours. As adviser of the Stamp Club, he has interested its mem- bers in sending stamp collections to hospitalized veterans. Bringing happiness to others seems to be his motto. Page fifteen CQZLQ Gfock Period One, you start full of pep, ln this math class you've got to be hep. Figures and theorems go tumbling past- You could catch 'em, if they weren't so fast. The period lags, the minutes crawl, Time hangs heavy, as if trying to stall. You wish they'd invented a much better ticker To make those clock-hands turn a bit quicker. But on to your French sans a moment of spite, Finding you ought to have studied last night, For the teacher decides to quiz all the class With a verb test you're sure you cannot pass. The clock ticks on and laughs at your pl ight As you pensively gaze at your paper so white. An obstinate tick-a refractory tock, As the minutes creep across the great clock. From third floor to first you leap in a bound, Rush into English--all fours off the ground. Gerunds and similes clash in the air, As the agonized teacher tears at her hair. But nothing compares to her anguish as some, For time on their hands, revert to their gum, And chewing in time to the second hand's beat Help pass the time by tapping their feet. Off to history where things never go right The date you recall is the cute one last night. Battles and treaties and Paul Revere's ride Get you confused-you wish you could hide. The clock proves no aid, and slowly does drag Till students and teacher are limp as a rag. Nation-wide problems just don't mean a thing, Patiently waiting for that bell to ring. l-lunger pains gnawing, you stagger to lab, With nitrates, potassium and sulphur you dab. Page sinqtccii. Food on your mind, you look at the time The way those hands creep is really a crime. lt's lZ:l5 now-half an hour to go, Never before has time seemed so slow. You look once again, for action you yearn, The harder you look, the slower they turn! Lunch! Food! Fodder! Grub! Yum! Crunch! Zoop! Blub! Oom! Crack! Ugh! Ahh! Rush! Crush! Times up! Blah! l-lot dog! A minute and a half to go! Mustard! Ouch! But these kids shove so! l-lash! What goes into this, nobody knows! Milk! You spilled it all over my clothes! Appetite dulled, you stampede to gym To hang from the bars and risk life and limb. But you don't mind, for bones are soon mended Time you don't notice while hanging suspended For, though we all know that exercise ls sure to make us well and wise, The fun in gym is practically nil Because that clock stands almost still! Reluctant feet dragging, you reach study hall Time spent gazing at the clock on the wall. l-lalf in a stupor, half in a daze, Your eyes take a strange fishy glaze. The second hand moves in slow, palsied jerks, Assured that George poured glue in the works. Time is now crawling on hand and on knee, You dream of the bell that'll make you free. Spirits are soaring, the weather is fine, But pity the one who stays in period nine! 4l lift Qooc! Q7TITLQ There is an old adage that says, "Music is good to the melancholy, bad to those who mourn, and neither good, nor bad to the deaf." Never- theless, regardless of what mood we were in, even the most unmusical among us were com- pletely charmed by the harmonious renditions that were played by the Davis ORCHESTRA, un- der the direction of Mr. Nielsen. Davisites frequently had an opportunity to hear the orchestra in the weekly as- EA Q 'n semblies. Those ', lf M, xf who were privi- leged to attend the ,'-s 5 'rl.- M successful Davis musical, "Trial by Qi? jury," heard, in ff, addition to a bril- Q liant violin solo by Vera Halleman, or x 7 ,,-,V a delightful piano 5-Li, rtev pf-Ce by Bob Mil- ler, the orchestra playing some of its best cultural music. The epit- ome of the orchestral season was reached in the inspiring, spectacular Christmas assembly. How- ever, for some, the recessional music, played by the orchestra at the june graduation, was by far the most pleasant. At the sharp command of Mr. Nielsen, "Keep those drums quiet", the semi-weekly practice of the Davis orchestra would commence. With a shrill fanfare of trumpets accompanied by a solid drum-beat for an introduction, those musi- cal aspirants would begin to rehearse some en- trance or exit march. The musicians would fill in the remainder of their 45 minute time allot- ment, by working on overtures, other marches, "The Star-Spangled Banner," and "incidentals." Frequently, the student conductor, Davis's own high-stepping drum-majorette, Arlene Pruesse, took Mr. Nielsen's place on the podium and con- ducted the striving musicians. ln addition to be- ing the student-conductor, Arlene was the or- chestra's secretary. Other officers were Larry Tichenor, president, Sam Martley, vice-presi- dent, and Barbara West, librarian. ORCHESTRA Row l: A. Goldstein, R. Himmell, R. Miller, Row 2: Mr. Nielsen, E. Wolf, D.

Opening devotions were enriched by their lovely voices blending in hymns. Once in a while they rendered a few extra numbers as part of the reg- ular program. This choir of mixed voices, under the direc- tion of Mr. Nielsen provided each year one of the most inspiring and beautiful assembly pro- grams of the year. This was the annual Christ- mas concert, which consisted of favorite Christ- mas carols, popular Christmas songs and tradi- tional yuletide songs. They were very beautifully rendered, The assembly hall was still, as sixteen members of the choir walked down the aisles singing. The auditorium was completely dark- ened except for the candles held by choir mem- bers. lt was a lovely spectacle. Not only did the choir contribute to the life CHOIR lTopl Row l: R. Miller, S.

Several of the choir members had leading roles in this Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, and many more made up the able chorus which supported the leading characters so well. This past year the choir was able to boast of such able soloists as Mary Brown, perhaps a sec- ond Marian Anderson, Robert Fulton, Larry Tichenor and Robert Weiss. Robert Weiss, in- cidentally, had a leading part in "College Days." The pianists who accompanied the large group this last year were Stella Harootounian and Rob- ert Miller. lf you were ever near the assembly during period three, you heard Mr. Nielsen and the choir diligently rehearsing. Yes, that's right, every single day. Having heard them but once, you realized that these long grueling hours of struggling with little black notes, meters, and rhythms, were well worth the trouble, for the choir was able to turn them into warm luring music. Their repertoire was large, ranging from Beethoven to boogie-woogie, and they performed each equally well. Don't think it was all work and no play, for there was nothing more satisfy- ing than to thrill others with your music when you liked music and liked to sing. ime tgprojqtetfi uc Characterl Scholarship! Leadershipl Servicel These were the requirements for admission to the school society whose membership is most coveted-the Davis branch of the NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY, which was organized in I923. After the honor assembly, what an exhil- arating feeling to sport that gold pin with the flaming torch-the emblem of the most highly esteemed secondary s c h o o I organization throughout the U n i t e d States, Alaska, and Hawaii. The select few who were sworn into the society during one of the yearls most in- spiring assemblies planned by Miss Williams, might well have been proud of the fact that they were now included among the IZOZ members already registered in the Maroon chapter of the N.H.S. The specific requirements for membership were these: Scholas- tically the student had to rank in A 5, sam? XIEJ In special balloting, teachers and students elect- ed ten per cent for membership. Besides high scholarship attainment, the candidate had to possess unusually strong character and leader- ship traits, and most important of all, he had to have been willing to devote his services to neighbors, teachers, fellow students, and com- munity. "Do unto others as thou would have others do unto you." Service, doing for others and working for the common good without expecting reimbursement, to accomplish, of one's own accord, just a little more than was required -these were the characteristics typical of any member of the Na- tional Honor Society.

"lt pays to be ignorant," was emphatically claimed by numer- ous unfortunates who had the privilege of exper- iencing the foregoing drudgery. Seriously though, Tau Epsilon Pi was the high- est scholastic recognition Davis could give to its students. To be able to wear the gold pin with the Greek symbols was an accomplishment which could only be attained by hard work and study. To have maintained a minimum average of eighty-five percent for two consecutive years was not easy, as many a bona fide member of this highly regarded society could verify. TAU EPSILON Pl Row l: A.

Headed in the fall by lver johnson and in the spring by Andy Grass, Miss Brown's disciples pa- trolled the halls, manned the lunch rooms, and stopped those eager students who did not bother to buy tickets, from entering athletic events, Those students passing through the halls during home room periods never failed to hear the chaos and confusion as they passed O. R. 2l4 at a sate distance. Goaded by Miss Brown's pleas for order, this model home room always was conducted in a democratic way, and became a living example of the horrors of democracy. ln December, those fifty boys took a trip into the wilds of Long ls- land to witness the United Nations General As- sembly in action. No doubt inspired by the speeches of the world's eminent statesmen, the marshals returned in the same undampened spirit in which they started out. Another highlight of the 214 social season was the Christmas party, featuring the boisterous rendering of songs, mi- nute helpings of ice cream and cake and Miss Brown's hoarse voice entreating us to please be quiet as the assembly was being ruined. But, all in all, the school owed thanks to the marshals, without whom school would have proved a much duller place. MARSHALS iropn Row l: I. johnson, H. Blanchette, R. Keele, 1. Folger, 1. Clarey, j.

Or did one direct you to an elu- sive classroom? No, she was not an angel in disguise, but a member of that fine organ- ization, the GlRL MARSH- ALS. This friendly group of girls was known to everyone around school. That familiar maroon and white badge al- ways seemed to appear in times of trouble, Whatever the task, a Girl Marshal was on the spot to help. You remember that girl who pushed you into one seat in assembly when you wanted to sit in another next to that certain someone? She was also one of the bright young helpfuls who kept your lunchroom neat and orderly. If it hadn't been for her turn- ing on the hall lights you probably would have fallen flat on your face try- ing to find your way around those dark and gloomy halls. As if that weren't enough, they even relieved some of Miss l?roctor's worries in the library. ln fact, about the only thing they didn't do for you was that chemistry homework. Under Miss Lewis's supervision, Betty Softy, head marshal, and the members themselves worked together to make the Girl Marshals an organization which really clicked. Surely, at some time, you have been paralyzed with fear when a poised young lady brought you the tidings that you were wanted in the office. Who else would that young lady be but a mem- ber ofthe SERVICE CLUB? This club, a preview of tomorrow's career girls, played an essential part in the school's activities. lts members de- voted time every day to lessen the burden of the regular office staff. They performed such Page twe 71 ty-two necessary tasks as sorting mail, filing, delivering messages and otherwise taking care of emergen- cies which are bound to arise in any busy school. They were not only a help to the school but they received valuable experience which will be a help to them when they go to business. Miss Lucchese's band of girls certainly would have been missed if they had not been handy. SERVICE CLUB lTopl Row l: G. Coppola, G. Forte, L. Rossi, N. Di Marzo, D. Mangano, G. De Angelis, A.

Fine 4 ot cz oments Qeczce One of the most pleasant experiences at Davis was being a member of Mr. Child's staff of RE- CEPTIONISTS, who greeted the various guests at the Hilltop and directed them to their destina- tions about the building. These girls, who were chosen for their attractive looks, pleasant per- sonalities, and capability, were stationed at desks situated in the foyer just inside the main en- trance to the building and in the anteroom out- side of Mr. Child's office. There they exhibited their charms upon the many who visited Davis during the past year-including the many re- turning veterans lcould be that was why so many girls sought this servicell. Not a few of the guests at Davis have commented upon the effi- ciency of these future secretaries. There certainly was never a dull moment while rendering this service to the school. Quite often a veteran or a serviceman, who hadn't seen the inside of Davis in many a year, would wander through our doors and be welcomed by one of the receptionists. Returning to his old Alma Mater, the vet would wonder what condition Davis was in, and no one was better fitted to in- form him than these girls. Together they would laugh over Pop Phillip's unorthodox method of teaching and how he would get a girl to speak up by threatening to "come down and sit with you l" The student-faculty game never ceased to be a topic of conversation nor did the wonder- ful l?l and strange aromas that drifted about the halls after the chemistry class's latest attempt to blow up the building. And then there was George, the old standby, who was always faithful to all Davisites, welcoming back all those who wanted to return. But the' receptionists did much more than just this. They helped parents deliver lunches to their forgetful offsprings, and aided in the office by running errands. They certainly were a big help to all concerned. Another group of girls who helped Davis un- selfishly were those on the SERVlCEMEN'S COMMITTEE, headed by Mariana Weidt, who helped keep the Honor Roll up to date. They scanned "The Daily Argus" for the names of former Davisites who were in the armed forces. After checking to make certain that the fellow was an alumnus of the l-lilltop, the girls looked to see if his name was on the l-lonor Roll posted just outside of the office. Usually it was, for an accurate check was kept on all those who left Davis, but if for some reason it was missing, then the name was given to Mariana who cor- rected the situation. These girls per- formed praiseworthy service to Davis and its servicemen. SERVlCEMEN'S COMMlTTEE lTopl C. Waechter, C. Taylor, j. Bliss, B. Lockwood RECEPTIONISTS lLeftl Row l: j. Meserole, l.

And Barbara Brady, gifted artist as well as journalist, not to be outdone by loan, pro- duced an entertaining poem about fashions, which you will enjoy if you turn to page 68.

Mr. Sundermann, our faculty adviser for the MAROON AND WHlTE BUSINESS BOARD, had the courage and determination to launch that drive. His busy bees, the Annual Reps, were buzzing around their Home Rooms in September, collecting sub- scribers' names and money, so that by the middle of October they were ready to report their totals, which resulted in the printing of about 600 books. Their speed was a great aid to the editors, who anxiously awaited the news as to how much spending money was available toward making the book a "honey". Mr. Allis, our cover man was hurriedly summoned, and the padded cover to inclose ll2 pages was decided upon by a joint IQOI' USQ Q98 committee of editors and business managers. ln addition to the Annual Reps were the cleri- cal workers who made photo appointments, kept bookkeeping accounts, and did the secretarial work. Sylvia Hamlin, with assistant Patricia Kelly, was the manager for the fall term, and Dolores Pantuso, assisted by Betty Sotty, served for the Spring term. The total workers numbered 52.

There was only one possible answer-the General Organization. Right hand helpers to the organization were the members of the G. O.

The live wire of the G. O. ART COMMITTEE was the chairman, I-lildegarde Mayer. I-ler group of artistic members transformed the previously colorless, uninteresting halls to gala dress. Never-to-be forgotten were the elaborately planned Christmas decorations.

As for the results of all this activity-well, of course some of them were noticeable right away, but for the long range ones we just had to wait until the Future I-Iomemakers really became the homemakers of future America.

This club was sponsored by Mrs. Stanitis until she joined the Edison High School teaching staff. Then the charming Mrs. Young headed the group. In this club the girls got a head start in many business proceedings. They were able to put forth their knowledge of salesmanship and store management, which proved invaluable to them later on in the business world. RETAI LERS CLUB l Belowi Row l: F. Donato, N.

Came Thursday afternoon you found the "Pier- res and Maries" giving delightful and educa- tional skits en francais-but "natchl" This year something revolutionary took place in the Club. Through Madame Stiles' efforts, club meetings were held at night at various homes, and French- born people were invited to speak to our "phil- ologists." M. Caillaud, a member of Les Forces de la Re'sistances, who fought on the side of the Free French during the war, told Le Cercle Fran- gais many of his experiences. After "less mem- bres" gave their plays, everyone conversed in French, and finally topping off a fine evening, "les rafraichissementsn were served! From meetings such as these which stressed a delight- ful time by all and which had an obvious educa- tional value also, a more intelligent student has resulted. A burst of gay Spanish music filled the previ- ously quiet air, accompanied by sounds of laughter and singing. No-Xavier Cugat was not making a personal appearance on the third floor of dear old Davis. lt was merely one of the regular meetings of the SPANISH CLUB. This happy group was composed of Spanish- speaking students who were anxious to expand their conversational ability, and, incidentally, have a good time doing it. Those who couldn't speak Spanish were highly recommended not to join the club, since meetings were conducted entirely in that language. And by the way, president Paul Nicolay lwith occasional assistance from Miss Leightonl did a swell job of running those meetings. Spanish songs, Spanish games, and Spanish plays were some of the activ- ities indulged in by mem- bers. During Regents Week, an excursion was made to New York City to attend a Spanish movie. You can be sure a good time was had by all-in a Spanish sort of a way. Hasta la vista, amigos mios. FRENCH CLUB lTopl Row l: S. Simes, F. Schramm, l. Farago, S. Zeckendorf, l. Goldberg, G.

After his stimulating talk l'm sure that many students undertook similar proj- ects of their own and, according to the usual Davis initiative, soon produced the effect of the bomb. Seymour Berkowitz, club president, planned to ask the GO. for a supply of gas masks to be kept as a part of the standard equipment in the chemistry lab. The writer suggested that 3 l 2 was a good place to, ---- well to, ---- blow up in. Furth- ermore ---- , but really, all kidding aside, the club provided an excellent opportunity for the chem- ist to learn more about the fascinating science, through research and experiment. Long live the clubl Probably the most unique club in Davis last year was the ADVANCED SCIENCE CLUB. The club, consisting of a dozen students, was a loose- ly-knit organization, unhampered by formalities and under the capable supervision of Mr. Stokes. This group did not really function as a club, but rather an assemblage of ambitious students banded together three periods a week, for the purpose of working on their individual projects and assisting in "lab" work. The only require- ment that one needed in order to join this select group of masterminds was that one have at least one year of Chemistry or Physics to one's credit. Whenever the occasion arose requiring a meeting of the club members, Leonard Friedman presided over it, as his office of president of the Advanced Science Club demanded, but these were quite infrequent, and rare occasions. The projects tackled by these future "scien- tists" covered many and varied scientific fields such as: making of plastics and bakelite prod- ucts, compounding the various pigments, study- ing the actions of enzymes, constructing and learning about wind tunnels, and actually pro- ducing some. of the different types of batteries. The club offered to its members the oppor- tunity of assisting in the Mount Vernon Hospital and thereby gaining much first-hand, scientific knowledge through the aid and guidance, that an occasion offered, of the staff members in the hospital. It was to the credit of this fine organi- zation that out of the four students that received honorable mention, from Davis, in the noted National Westinghouse examination, all fqur were active members of the Advanced Science Club. An enviable record, to be surel " For the members of the ASTRONOMY CLUBl,f the arrival of spring was signified, not by any- thing as unreliable as the annual appearance of the robin, but by the stolid, seasonal placement' of the stars, in the heavens above. These astron- omy enthusiasts were taught to know and' be able to identify between fifteen and twenty first magnitude stars. lncidentally, Annapolis requires its midshipmen to know thoroughly at least l2O different stars, for the obvious reason that while at sea, sometimes their very lives depend on their knowledge of the heavens. The Astronomy Club members received a considerable amount of instruction from Miss Chase, on astronomy and astrology. These meetings were supplement- ed by frequent nocturnal classes, whereby the celestial heavens were more closely scrutinized. This rela- tively small club, consisting of twenty members, had as its pres- ident Dante Faticato. ADVANCED SCIENCE CLUB lTopl Row l: A. M. Hargraveg Row 2: N. Fisher, L. Friedman, M. Bael, G.

This year found a large turnout of thirty-five rifle enthusiasts, among whom only two were girls, loyce Haberstein, secretary, and Mary Le- vine. The Davis rifle team, last year's Westchester Scholastic Champions, also embarked on another season of competitive rifle matches with other high schools. The team members varied from week to week since they were picked from the top ten marksmen in the regular Tuesday prac- tices. A radical change was made in the rifle competition for Davis this year, as all members had to shoot from the standing posi- tion in addition to the prone position I IW- that was previously used. Unaccustom- ed to the new standing position the team dropped its first few matches, but toward the latter part of the sea- son a marked improvement was seen in the difficult "off handl' scores. Mr. Caville did a highly commend- able job in his arrangement of matches for his young proteges.

Also through the ef- forts of Coach Caville, Davis High School was entered in a series of N.R.A. posted matches, in which the Maroon team carried on by mail, a series of matches with teams from various and scattered parts of the Nation. The Davis marksmen competed with Upper Darby Senior High of Pennsylvania, Brooklyn Poly Prep, and Gallatin High School of Boseman, Montana. Maroonmen won the latter two matches. Being a member of the Davis High team had its lucrative advantages. For instance the team members were usually driven to the "away" matches, which included trips to the Bronx, Long Island, Brooklyn, and Manhattan. In addi- tion, those who succeeded in scoring among the highest five for better than fifty percent of all matches were entitled to large Davis "D's". Standouts for the Davis sharpshooters were jules Davis, the club's president, Abe Green- baum, executive officer, Carlton Copp, Richard Schwartz, captain and treasurer, Martin Bael, vice-president, Fred Remson, and joyce Haber- stein. The scores of these and other team mem- bers usually ranged from 95 to IOO out of a possible IOO prone, and from 70 to 85 standing. A pretty fair record indeedl A new organization, the BIOLOGY CLUB, en- tered the ranks ot Davis clubs, this year.

This small group of well-experienced players was coached by the most able "Pop" Phillips. Amid the spirit of joviality and sportsmanship, accomplished masters of the thought-provoking game gained new experiences and added cleverness in the handling of chessmen. Those adept boys obtained for Davis High School greater respect in neighboring Westchester County and New York City high schools by successfully competing in chess tournaments. At various times, there have been exhibitions of cups and trophies won by the mem- bers of this gallant and perservering group.

These boys were appreci- ated by Davisites who understood the extent of their preparation. For the past three years, Pop's club has won the Westchester Inter-Scholastic Trophy Cup. The prospects for winning the honor again seem to be with these boys. Under the leadership of Captain Danny Samuels, and with the expert playing of Clyde Farnsworth, the club expects to tri- umph once again over the teams of the neighboring high schools. At the regular meetings of the Davis STAMP CLUB, collectors traded with each other in an attempt to enlarge and complete collections. Under the sponsor- ship of lVlr. George Avery, they did their best to start stamp collections for dis- abled veterans of World War ll, Robert Schweitzer, former president, frequently related the backgrounds of the stamp issues of many of the Latin American republics. ln order to keep abreast of important news in the philat- elic world, it was a frequent occurrence for members to bring editions of stamp magazines to their meetings. A double purpose was accomplished as worldly trends follow closely types of stamp issues and philatelic policies. The HISTORY CLUB was the perfect media for the more intimate study of history and cur- rent events. During the past year, the club took trips to many places of historic interest, attended a United Nations meeting, held a successful theatre party, and had many interesting and vital discussions on momentous subjects. As we passed through the fragrant aroma of steak smothered in onions, and left behind us the gentle tinkling of glasses, we were suddenly transported into another period of history. A smiling guide, in Revolutionary dress, nodded and waved us on to the stairs, saying: "l'm sure your visit to the Frauncis Tavern will be a pleas- ant one and an incentive to further study of history as a human document, instead of a ser- ies of cut and dried dates and eventsfi Later on, in the same spirit, a hostess sadly remarked that it is too bad that a man doesn't profit by his experiences in history. The success of the History Club this past year was due to the able and patient guidance of Mrs. E. S. Hiller, the cooperation of its members, and the faithful work of its officers, Ralph Brozan, president, Richard Hoff, vice-president, and Carol Lloyd, secretary.

When one enlightened intellectual of the DAVIS FORUM piped up with this challenging state- ment, blows met and the only person who could unlock the controversial viewpoints was Dr. lon Carter Covell, the Forum's outstanding adviser and moderator. This club had no officers, for every member at one time represented Davis in forums at twelve different Westchester high schools. The discussions were conducted similar to the Town Meeting of the Air by having ques- tions from the audience. Ben Balkind, a Forum member, represented Davis at the Westchester County Youth Forum, where he was chosen to go to Albany. Another highlight was seeing "State of the Union" and touring "Little Italy," the Bowery, and Chinatown. The Davis Forum prov- ed itself to be the most up and coming discussion group by enthusiastic student participation in Page forty-si.r international relationships and current prob- lems. "Happy anniversary to you," sang the partici- pants in the TWENTIETI-I ANNIVERSARY OF THE DEBATING SOCIETY. Chairman Sidney Knafel extended a welcome to Mr. Cullen and guests, Mr. Cullen congratulated the Society and paid special tribute to Mr. johnson and Mr. Thompson, who later addressed the group, for the remarkable work they had done for Davis students. Edward Landau then took photographs. Mr. Childs spoke on "The Mark of a Thinker", in which he emphasized the importance of pub- lic speaking and debating.

The debate was the most important one on the program, for Peeks- kill High School had always been an annual rival. The officers of the Debating Society were Sidney Knafel, president, Bob Slote, vice-president, Donald Schwartz, secretary, and Richard Lynn, in charge of interscholastic debates. The histor- ical beginning of this Society developed with the founder, Mr. George Thompson, who not only encouraged debating, but ' wt . . , v also originated the sugges- X tion of a Davis debate before the Saturday Night Club of Mount Vernon. Out of this outstanding suggestion grew the now famous Davis De- bating Society. Under the splendid direction of Mr. C. B, johnson, our Davis dei- baters were recognized all over Westchester for their scholarship in debating on problems of world interest. DEBATING SOCIETY iTopi Row l: D. Schwartz, R.

Well, it was true, for anything could have happened when the OUR TOWN CLUB and Mrs. Walter Addis took over.

Other members took over the remaining tasks. After working all morning at their different duties, the student officials were feted at the Studio Club with a steak dinner. The highlight of the day was when Edwin jediken, "Fire Com- missionern, and Charles Brawn, "Eire Chief" climbed up the fire ladder to the top of City Hall.

Halleman Page forty-uiize lfwitfi the cgpeecf of light In the past season, the most important jobs of the GIRLS' ATHLETIC COMMITTEE were those of wel- coming visiting teams and approving athletic honors. Chosen by Miss Taylor, this group was made up of girls, outstanding in gym work. Thus, they were capable enough to handle the numerous sideline, athletic jobs that came up. ln addition, these girls occasionally had the chance to "ref" inter-class basketball and baseball games. As for athletic honors, no girl received her cov- eted "D" without first having had it approved by every member of the Athletic Committee. The TENNIS season started early in September. A large group of girls turned out, so that competition was keen. Because of bad weather, matches were delayed for long periods, but by late October they were com- Page fifty pleted. Eda lVIae Hubbard came out vic- tor and Anita Margulis, runner-up, after fighting their way through quarter and semi-finals, Every Tuesday afternoon, the Y.M.C.A. pool rang to the sounds of non-masculine voices. One immediately discovered that the girls' SWIMMING TEAM had taken over. These girls, beginners and advanced swimmers alike, perfected their swim- ming strokes under the able instruction of Y.W.C.A. and Red Cross approved teachers. The fee was a reasonable 52.00, and during the forty-five minutes to an hour which they spent in the pool, the girls learned everything from the dog paddle to a complicated back-stroke and crawl. Diving was reserved for the most part for those who had become quite proficient in their other swimming. At the end of each term the girls had competitive races. Each group had a win- ner and runner up. All four girls received large "D's", the other girls, the small ones. GIRLS' ATHLETIC COMMITTEE lTopl F. Buhrig, I. Bayles, A. Reichgott, A. Gorman, S.

No it wasn't the races at Belmont but at good old A. B. Davis. The one sport in which we had a fine team was TRACK. Although we didn't win any of the meets, they were all very close. The squad did, how- ever, have the glory of carrying off the third place honors at the county cham- pionship contest. George Scoledes captained the team while Earle Oswald did the coaching. George was also a first rate quarter miler. One of the top performers of the team was Dave Lane who always ran a fast mile. Warren Myers and Conrad Rennemann also turned in good per- formances. Everyday you could see these Davisites running several miles to get in top shape. At the all county meet, with about twenty teams participating, several of the Hilltoppers walked off with medals. joseph Taylor got one in thehigh jump event, while Hugh McGee walked off with an honor in pole vaulting. George Scoledes was awarded a medal for his speed in the quarter mile. Another member of the squad that we must not forget was Bob Petrillo, a good shot put- ter who two years ago played center on the Davis football squad. Lou Hackett and Sylvester Washington, also grid- men, ran the hundred-yard dash for the Maroon. This season just past Mr. Elder coached the' field events. When autumn rolled around last year, some ambitious Davisites started to run about five miles a day. These were the men who represented Mount Vernon High School at the CROSS COUNTRY races. Although Earle Oswald was the official coach of the group, George Scoledes helped him greatly. Dave Lane, sparkplug of the' team, vvon three out of five races. The runners, as a whole, were victorious over New Rochelle, Albert Leonard, and White Plains. Some other boys who did a wonderful job were Warren Myers, Bern- ard Hassel, Peter Stud- pg ner, and Ken Fajans. 2? Qt ,7- 97 f. , i -V l i - .T- Z MUSQN ul 3.5- CROSS COUNTRY lTopl Row l: M.

At the end of the inter-class games, a chosen team of girls, from Davis, was lucky in having the opportunity of riding up to Roosevelt High, Yonkers, to play its Varsity and junior Vars- ity. A week later a Rye High School team came to visit Davis. Of the two encounters, Davis came out on top in one, against Rye. Rye was made welcome by the whole Davis team and Miss Taylor. Ice cream and cookies were served to refresh the tired teams after the game. The inter-class games were also suspense-filled. The two VOLLEYBALL lTopl Row l: j. Habel, M. Kilgo, E. Hub- bard, M.

A tie had to be play- ed off, and the championship was decided by only one point. Very few girls in previous FIELD HOCKEY games had the misfortune of having teeth knocked out,'while playing. But, last season, Eda Mae Hubbard, one of the few, had just that happen to her. Such an accident is usually very rare, although slightly dented chins were not uncommon around the hockey field. lEven the weaker sex can swing a mean hockey stickll The stiffest game of the season was between the juniors and Seniors, for the championship, The juniors, captained by Brunie Garland, fought hard against Eda Mae Hubbard's team and won. The score ended in a dead tie, but since the juniors had amassed enough points from other games that they had played, they won the championship. Each girl proudly received her large "D", and the run- ners-up, their smaller ones. One game of the season was quite unusual. just as it had begun, a slight drizzle started. As the game pro- ceeded, neither team wished to stop. Many girls looked very much bedrag- gled, but continued to fight on until the game had been completed. A continuous "Rat-tat-tat-tat" echoed from the boys' gym every afternoon as members of the PUNCHING BAB CLUB tried to expand their muscles. Under the expert direction of Mr. Childs, this group speedily learned the art of self-defense. Daily practice on the punching bag developed sturdy bodies, perfect timing, and coordination. The bulging, rip- pling muscles of those super-men brought admiring glances and sighs from the feminine set. If you want a treat in store for you, be present when Mr. Childs gets into action on that bag. A few well timed punches and you think you are witnessing a sleight of hand performance, first you see the bag and then you don't. lt flies with the speed of lightning.

'lEn guardel" This cry was followed by the clashing of cold steel as the FENClNG CLUB went into action after a year's ab- sence from Davis. Although no blood was ever shed in their duels, these swordsmen probably imagined themselves as gal- lant cavaliers. At least it sounded that way from the din they created. Besides the regular foils the club had some long cav- alry swords, but most of the members found them too heavy to use. The weaker sex was very active in the club. Perhaps the girls were using this sport as a last resort to lose weight. Last year the club disbanded due to a slight accident. This year, however, it was reorganized and the musketeers really got into the swing of things. Page fifty-thrce f7 5 7' I rf , . F . I . t. i 'E ' Y "H ""' YC? f H... 532 ' .,... . . gf. ,, ,f.,..

This organization had been absent from the Hilltop for many years, but was revived 'once again. Unfortunately, the Davis courts were not in play- ing condition, so that the members were forced to play at the California Road and Memorial Field courts, Although there were no lack Kramers or Donald Budges in the tennis club, there were many promising players. Among them was Donald Ross, the president of the group, who was defeated last year in the finals of the Mount Vernon junior Championship Tournament. Tennis is a wonderful sport for the development of both the mind and the body and is also an excellent teacher of sportsmanship and fair Page fifty-four play. The tennis club has and will continue to offer Davisites the chance to participate in a sport of international renown, Another athletic activity was revived at Davis this year when Coach Oswald reorganized the GYM TEAM. Perhaps, when you were in junior high school, you re- member the exhibitions of these muscular athletes. Last term the boys started to do their stunts once more and continued to de- velop their biceps to the extent of giving Charles Atlas some close competition. Of course, it is hard to tell whether the boys went through those daily workouts just to build their bodies or for the ul- timate aim of attracting those charming bobby-soxers at the Hilltop. This year's team was built around four veterans, Sylvester Washington, Bill Cunnington, Teddy Dunham, and Ralph Tre- monte. Other members of the squad were Bobby Olsen, Keldon Tenaglier, Ray Hayes, Lou Hack- ett, and Tom Walsh. These Davis- ites drilled mainly on the parallel bars and in acrobatics. ln addition to old routines, the Earl planned out many new Ones, TENNIS CLUB lTopl Row l : W. Pastore, D. Ross, H.

This was a familiar sight to enthusiastic football fans this last season. Although the losses were many, we can still look back with pride at a FOOTBALL SQUAD that was magnificent in de- feat. Of course, we will always remember our lone victory over Gorton and that thrilling l 3-l 3 tie with Port Chester, this year's WIAA Champs. A new face became familiar at the Hilltop last football season when the beloved Russ Doyle, coach of the Maroon for many years, retired, and a new figure, likeable, skillful and clever Bill El- der, took his place. All year Coach Elder shifted the positions of the players always trying to find the right combination. Although he found that combination, we still didn't win. l-lowever, the outlook is really bright for next year since only one member of this year's varsity squad left Davis. Since the squads of many of our most dan- gerous rivals are losing key men now, we should have a first rate team next year. The Davis gridmen may not be the best of foot- ball players, but they certainly are good judges of beauty. For the Football Queen of l946, they chose gorgeous Pat Foley, whose picture beauti- fies this page considerably. FOOTBALL SCORES Sept. Mamaroneck Davis Home Oct. Roosevelt ..... Davis Home Oct.

They were Mr. Childs' pride and joy-the apples of his eye-Davis l-ligh School's answer to the Mexican jumping bean! lt seems like only yesterday that we saw our football team fight hard but, alas, go down in de- feat. Davis lost the first game with Mamaroneck 3l -O. The following week also defeat followed the jinxed Davisites, and we succumbed to Roosevelt l2-6. The one thing that will always be remembered with joy and pride was the battle with Gorton, trailing 6-O in the second half the Hilltoppers came back to win l2-6. To start the Davisites rolling, Angelo Carideo intercepted a Gorton pass in our own end zone, and they just couldn't stop him until he reached the Davis 33 yard line. On the next play Bobby Violino got off to a 45 yard gain. Later, a pass from Carideo to lack Schroeder and another thrilling run by Violino cupped the game. The following week, however, spelled defeat. when Yonkers beat us 7-6. The Pelham game started off with a bang. On the first two plays of the tilt, our opponent got touchdowns, both of which were nullified by penalties. Even this didn't save the Hilltoppers and again we lost 7-6. The game with Port Chester was the most excit- ing tussle of the season. On the first play of the second half, Lou Hackett smashed through right tackle and streaked 75 yards to a touchdown. Port Chester then came back with a fifty-two and then an eighty yard march to go into the lead. Later, with the ball on the Davis 30 yard line, Dick Buehler passed to Carideo for a twelve yard gain. Again Dick passed to Angelo, who avoided the Port Chester secondary and tied the game. With only a few minutes to play, Buehler tossed the pigskin to Tony Daniello who made a spectacular catch on the ten yard line. After two plays, halfback Buehler brought the ball over the goal line but fumbled, with Port Chester re- covering. Thus the battle ended in a l3-l3 tie. ln the forty-seventh annual tilt with New Ro- chelle, the Davisites were smothered by a more experienced squad, and lost l9-O. The week after, the Hilltop squad ended up the gloomy season by bowing to Edison Tech, 26-O. The valiant crew of the SCORE- BOARD SQUAD accomplished superhuman feats with their only reward the remarks of the football spectators who didn't bother to look at the board anyway, These men braved the perils of wind and cold, up in the altitude of the cold black steel death-trap which marked their "haven."

After 6 innings of play the final results proved fatal to those ten fresh, young students, for the oldsters won 8 to 6. Without the shadow of a doubt the "profs" were reenforced by the aid of two men teachers serv- ing as umpires, namely, "Up and Atom" Bunker and "Veni, Vidi, Vici" Phillips. The students took an early lead in the game when Prof. Copp gave up six hits, making the score at the end of the fourth inning 6 to 3 in favor of the young- sters. And then came the storm in all its fury, for the so-called old men were suddenly and miracu- lously transformed to powerful supermen. Yes, sir, they really developed some muscle. Frank Palombella, a big ache for the students, ham- mered out three hits, including two homers, and it was his sixth inning blow that produced the triumph for the professors. During that latter part of the game the instructors even pulled a double play, the old fire-chaser himself, Russ Doyle, caught a line drive and pegged the old hide to the eminent scientist Russell, who caught Ross off first base, But the real hero of the game was the chubby, jovial Bob Dodds whose fairy- like motions brought roars of laughter from the spectators, Artist Dodds had to employ the use of a stretcher manned by two students to carry him around the bases. Although the kids tried to stay in the game, they were the victims of the superb fielding and hitting of the school mas- ters. Sh-h-h, keep it under your hat, but-it is rumored that the teachers used special concen- trated atom tablets of some unknown compound to produce the spurts of energy which they un- leashed against the "studes." The students were powerless to fight against the forces of science and so were defeated by the faculty. This reporter wishes to commend all the play- ers, especially the teachers, for being fine sports about the whole affair.

A national organization, its members won their laurels by appearing in different plays, working backstage, or performing other necessary tasks. Davis is very proud of its own National Thespians-Rich- ard Clark, jane Gazverde, and Mariana Weidt.

The Dramatic Society also worked in conjunction with the P.T.A. by presenting evening enter- tainment for one of their special meetings. Of course, all the year's activities were di- rected toward the evening production which, last December, was the ever-popular Gilbert and Sul- livan operetta "Trial by jury." The plot was of a young man, Edwin ljay Eolgerl who, tiring of his sweetheart Angelina lLois Livingstonl, fell in love with another. l-lis jilted sweetheart went to court and sued Edwin for breach of promise. ln court, she captivated all the men present, Edwin proposed various solutions, but in vain-he of- fered to marry her if he might marry his other sweetheart later, but her lawyer iMorty Aroni objected. Finally, the judge lTommy Watersl, disgusted at the objections and eager to get away, married Angelina himself. The National Thespians, together with Miss Dorothy Eeaster and the Dramatic Society, have worked hard to give Davis the top quality dra- matic productions it demanded and deserved Their untiring efforts were always appreciated, and the excellent work which they did will al- ways be remembered by Davisites.

BASKETBALL is another sport that the Davisites didn't exactly shine in, but our quintet was always fighting hard at the final whistle. As a matter of fact, in a game with Mamaroneck last season, the l-lilltoppers rallied desperately in the closing period of the tilt to come within three points of victory when the fi- nal whistle sounded. Oustanding among the Ma- roon hoopsters was Angelo Fuciletti, who led our section of the county in scoring, lt seems odd that such a brilliant forward and high scorer should be produced by a team with so few vic- tories to its credit. The squad got off to a quick start many times but almost always trailed at the half, and there were only a few times when Mr. Palombella's men were leading at the close of thcse court battles. Of course, there is always the future to look into, and with no one leaving, the outlook for next year is really bright. Looking back at last season though, I can remember those thrilling after- noons and evenings that l spent shouting my lungs out for the basketball squad of my dear old Alma Mater, only to watch them go down in hopeless defeat.
