Resolved that the government adopt a policy of subsidation for our schools. A dual debate was held by our DEBATING SOCIETY with Peekskill High School on this subject. 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. Seated comfortably in the Mayor's chair was Robert Barrus, the "new Mayor", and his chief assistants helping him in running Mount Vernon's municipal government were: Ben Balkind, "City ludgeul lay Folger, "Comptroller", Sid- ney Knafel, "President of the Board of Education", and Robert Muson, "President of the Board of AIdermen". 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. At various meetings guest speakers famil- iarized members with their city's educational, cultural, and government facilities. The Club had the largest membership in the school which is indicative of civic interest of our modern gen- eration. 21 nf 9 , Page forty-seven
