O une, llze Cgrue are With the command from Coach Caville, "Load bolt cartridges and commence to firel", the Davis RIFLE CLUB opened another season. 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. The Davis nim- rods were extremely fortunate in ob- taining matches with such teams as RIFLE CLUB IRightl Row I: A. Greenbaum, I. Davis, Mr. Ca- ville, M. Bael, I. Haberstein, I. Donleyg Row 2: I.

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
