Born in the dawn of a new era of mankind, this publication has survived its humble begin- nings and has continued through two of the greatest catastrophes in the history of the world. The staff has striven to make of this edition a review worthy of Davis leaders, activities, and achievements through the years. The reader will note that the staff writers and artists in the creation of their book, have presented the past as a background for the present. 5 oarv! of glclucafion ROW 1: Miss Catharine Rhodes, Mr. Frank Pnlmison, Mr. Emil Seador, Mr. Roscoe Smyth, Mrs. Elizabeth Weistg BOW 2: Mr. Frederick West, Mr. Anthony Scarpino, Mr. Harold Storms, Mr. Jordan Larson, Mr. Samuel Winokur, Mr. Hugh Kelly, Mr. Alfred Cledhill CMr. Frank Pierce was not present when this picture was taken.J The Big Problem this year for the Board of Education and its president, Mr. Emil F. Seador, was the planning of the new high school on the Wartburg Property. This project seemed to cause much controversy throughout the city, but we greatly appreciate the fact that our Board is doing everything it can to hasten the date of actual construction. We had hoped to be able to report that the city would allow a special spring referendum on the approval of the issuance of bonds for the financing of the project, but as we go to press, the city's alder- men have just voted to postpone all voting until the general election in November. Another duty of the Board of Education was to approve the use of funds for the upkeep 6 of the schools. Davis was not neglected, for back in March we noticed that the halls of Davis were being repaired prior to the painting of the entire school this summer. A great honor came recently to the Board, when Mrs. Carl S. Weist, one of the newer mem- bers, for her excellent work on the Board of Education as well as for her many other im- portant activities in the city, was elected the Outstanding Citizen of Mount Vernon for 1949. When we realize that We have such quali- Hed and representative citizens on our School Board, it is no wonder to us that outstanding accomplishments are made in the educational developments of the Mount Vernon Public Schools. If'. 6Llf'50lfL For the first time in almost twenty years a Mount Vernon Superintendent of Schools was elected to an olhce in a national education organ- ization, when Mr. Jordan L. Larson was recently chosen second vice-president of the American Association of School Administrators. At a Board of Education meeting, a committee of the Mount Vernon Teachers Association headed by its president, Dr. Alfred M. Franko, honored Mr. Larsonis election. Dr. Franko said, alt is axgreat honor when one remembers that Mount Vernon stands 232nd on the list of cities as to size, yet in almost all we do educationally, we stand at the top of the listfi It was also stated that the uround of applause that greeted Mr. Larson's nomination and his election was the greatest and most prolonged ever known at such a con- ventionf, Surely we are honored to have such an able person as Mr. Larson as the administrative head of our school system. We can feel confident that he will do everything in his power towards the speedy establishment of a new high school for future Mount Vernon families. isa Elwvlea Miss Catharine I. Rhodes, Assistant Super- intendent of Schools, as well as lending an ex- perienced hand to the child guidance clinic, the Curriculum Study Committees and the expanded testing program, served recently on the editing committee of THE EXCHANGE, a release of the Metropolitan School Study Council. More- over, considering one of her most important pieces of work to be that of helping to solve the building problems, she assisted with surveys and plans tor a new high school designed to provide facilities for all the boys and girls of the com- munity. W Even though Miss Rhodes supervised all these activities, she still found time to visit fre- quently all the secondary schools, including our own A. B. Davis, so that she might know at first hand the present school needs. Our thanks to Miss Rhodes for the many grand things she has done for us. 7 LDV. JUOW 1 mr. aguia '6Mr. Davis was the Mount Vernon High School. And the Mount Vernon High School was Mr. Davisf' a former Davis graduate recently wrote. , Mr. A. B. Davis, the first principal of the Mount Vernon High School, was the adminis- trator in 1900 when the high school moved to its own huilding on South Fourth Avenue, and he continued in that position when the school moved to the present huilding. In March, 1933, upon the occasion of Mr. Davis, seventy-fifth hirtiday, the name of the Mount Vernon High School was changed to A. B. Davis High School. .70 jde Cfcm 0 19 0 ln dedicating your Annual to all those who have helped to create a Golden Age in Mount Vernon High School and in Davis High School, you have paid a gracious and Well-deserved tribute to the students who have pre- ceded you at Davis and to the teachers who have given devoted service to our school. The past is primarily important as a beginning of the future. Pride in the past is of value only if it causes us to shape a future of which We can be even more proud. The proud past of our school should cause every one of us to be vitally concerned with what Davis will become in the next fifty years. The Work of building a high school that will pro- vide for all the young people of our community the edu- cational opportunities that are best for them is an un- finished task. Your interest, your effort, your support are needed if the next great step forward to better educational opportunities for the youth of Mount Vernon is to be successfully taken. I hope that years hence, when this greater high school has become a well established reality, you will be one of those loyal Davisites who can proudly say, NI helped to build that schoollw May the years ahead be good to you! A familiar figure around Davis is, of course, Dr. Howard G. Spalding, our principal. Wfhether we see him in the classrooms, the halls, or the office, his pleasant smile greets us as we go about our Work. He is responsible, too, for a great many behind-the-scenes accomplishments at Davis as well as those tangible results which we come across every day. One of the intangible achievements of the past year of which We seniors may be espe- cially proud is the revitalizing of the Davis spirit. For this fine accomplishment We owe much to our principal. Naturally, the marvelous success of the athletic teams, the nationally recognized achievements of the Hi-News, the fine service of the G. 0. Store, the purchase of the resplendent band uniforms, the band's magnificent concert, and the professional performances of the Dra- matic Society have done much to create this spirit. But Without Dr. Spalding's inspiration and encouragement We feel that the spirit that we love would not have been so distinctly in evidence. We as seniors, thank Dr. Spalding sin- cerely for each and every service that he has given us during the three years we have been in high school, and We hope that we can live up to the fine standards which he has helped to set for us here at Davis. 9 M glT'Uc.A.n.. .fgvfuiaem J MR. CHILDS MR. FREE y 10 D Mlss LEWIS Our advisers do more than we shall ever realize for each and every one of us. Mr. Childs, vice-principal, specializes in the male population of Davis which, during the senior year, frequents his busy office with numerous college applications many of which must have his approval. Miss Lewis, dean, on the other hand, gives her expert advice to the many girls who go to her for in- formation concerning their programs, their careers and college choices. Our new guidance counselor, Mr. Free, received both his BS. and M.S. degrees in education at the University of Pennsylvania, later teaching chemistry and gen- eral science and serving as full-time guidance counselor at a New Jersey high school. After four years of instructing aviation cadets and stu- dent ofiicers in the Navy, he spent three years in graduate study at the University of Minnesota. Mr. Free considers his position as guidance coun- selor at Davis a good opportunity to develop a program which will be of maximum benefit to the students.

COUNCIL had anything left to do, but, under the leadership of Presidents Bob Bell and Chink Childs, the Council saw the G. O. Store opened, Senior Day initiated, the Band Fest successfully instituted, the Band Uniform Drive completed. In addition, the G. O. ploughed through the regular tasks of the school year and successfully' accomplished all. Under the direction of Miss Young, the industrious GENERAL SCHOOL INTERESTS COMMITTEE, formed to relieve the G. O. of some of its tasks, was an influential group in the school. Not only did appropriations for clubs, reviewing of new charters and approval of club investments COlI1C under its scope, but also the approval and suggestion of names for non-athletic honors.

Dances, concerts, Dramatic So- ciety productions, special contests, shows, sports events and the like, all came under their artistic jurisdiction. Wvhen it came to sports, the BOYS' ATH- LETIC COMMITTEE were the ones to see. In charge of arranging and coordinating contests, games and meets, they were really important in helping Davis come out on top. The GIRLS' ATHLETIC COMMITTEE did for the stronger members of the fair sex what the boys' committee did in their turn. It was MUSIC COMMITTEE ROW 1: Mr. Nielsen, A. Goldberg, ROW 2: W. Tilson, J.

Representatives of the band, orchestra, choir, and music classes made up the G. O. MUSIC COMMITTEE. Aside from arranging enjoyable music assemblies, they also helped sponsor concerts and saw that all music, instru- ments and stands were properly cared for. First organized in 1942 by Miss Brower, the SCHOOL PUBLICATIONS COMMITTEE acted as an advisory group for both the nHi- News" and the 'gMaroon and White." Also in control of the purse strings, it considered and passed on the expenditures of both publications. Lately, this committee has had the responsibility of recommending awards for those who have rendered honorable service to Davis' publications. PUBLICATIONS COMMITTEE H. Hirsch, L. Harris, I.

MAY WE HELP YOU? uIT'S CROONER TIME" OHHI MY CURLSI NTHE CHERRY SISTERSM Wai! fo wee OW ma Wafer, .Nuff maroon ana! Wife W Sheer hard work and vigorous unrelenting campaigning by some seventy-odd eighth grade pupils and their parents had shattered prece- dents and worn down all resistance until success had rewarded their hard work, their faith, hope and necessity, for by September, 1899, Mount Vernon High School had a building of its own in what is now the Administration Building on Fourth Avenue. It is A. B. Davis, the schoo1's first principal, to whom we owe so much. Not only was it his crusading which helped to sell the idea of the school to the town but also his continued guid- ance that helped it move toward the top. Of the school's early organizations the two best known were Sigma Delta Epsilon and Con- gress. The former was the girls' debating society, the latter, for boys. It might be said that these groups were the ancestors of every one of Davis' modern clubs. Along with these groups, Davis had socie- ties devoted to sports, and in the 'teens, girls' sports held sway. Basketball was the major in- terest and 'GNausicaa", the girls' team, set a record for good sportsmanship which few teams could outdo. The Annuals of Davis are filled with the records of great athletes and great teams. In the first thirty years of the century, there were no teams in Westchester that could come close to Davis in high school sports. However, the con- version into a two-year high school hindered us, and it has not been until the last few years that our teams have risen to the top of the county. We find names of those who have stood out in all-around performance: Harry Miller, a five-letter man in 19059 Frank Carideo, one of Davis, greatest football stars who Went on to be- come an immortal at Notre Dame, Ralph Branca, a mainstay of the Brooklyn Dodgers, pitching staff, and Teddy Ramsey, who, in the past few years, has been the outstanding all-around athlete in Westchester County. Along with our great athletes, there have been outstanding teams. From 1900 to 1904 Davis was the county track champion, and we recon- quered this position in 1908, 1914, 1920, 1922, and 1927. Earl Oswald came to Davis in 1926 and the following year led our runners to victory in the Penn Relays. 'GDad" White and Leroy Mills were great coaches of the past. Our football teams have been among the best in the county many times. Our top seasons were 1901, 1906, 1911, 1913, 1921, 1922, 1924, 1926, 1928, and 1949. In 1926 our eleven scored 354 points, while holding our opposition to 7. Basketball quintets have also had their heyday. It was not until 1913 that Davis failed to win the county championship, while teams in 1915, 1924, and 1925 also proved to he the best in Westchester. In 1902 Davis even beat Princeton and Columbia Universities. ln the past fifty years, the baseball teams of 1908, 1913, 1924 and 1949 have proved out- standing, with perhaps 1913 the greatest, for in that year, the team had a batting average of .348. However, this period showed mainly a change in the atmosphere of the school. The 19 spirit was still there and going strong, every- thing was growing, developing like a new build- ing upon its foundations. The roaring twenties zoomed in and brought glory on the sports field as well as on the academic front. lt was not only a matter of the quality of the student attending the school but also the standards of the school in the making of the student. World War I had come, and Davis students W-on a reputation for doing their part. Thirty former students willingly and unselfishly gave their lives. Meanwhile other alumni had distinguished themselves in professions and jobsg others went on to college and became great in their own way. Through the changes in building, prin- cipals, teachers, and students, through the de- pression years, and on to the present, Davis has given a good account of herself. Davis is rolling on. In the forties, during World War ll, every- one in the school put his shoulder to the wheel. Many seniors enlisted and one hundred eleven Davis heroes gave Htheir last full measure of devotionf' Those who could not fight for their country bought and sold war bonds, and Davis' sales topped those of every other school in the 20 area. lt has always been a worthwhile tradition here for every student to support his fellow schoolmates. And Davis continues to blaze new trails. .lust last year after-school dances were started, and this year a success is being made of the school store, our football team slaughtered New Rochelle, a team which was unscored upon until it played ours. The Dramatic Society presented great plays and the 64l'li-News" continued to win top journalistic honors. But if you should stop to listen, you can plainly hear another debate in full swing-Shall we build a new school? Some fifty odd years ago Mt. Vernon heard the same cries. How will she react this time? Will she come to the aid of our education system, which in the past has pro- duced some of the leaders in today's world? To mention just a few of the many the staff has learned of, there are a national authority on city planning, a reporter covering the Yalta Con- ference, a chemist awarded one thousand dollars by DuPont for research in medicine, a foreign correspondent for one of the country's leading newspapers, several important educators and gov- ernment officials, and an archeologist for the Museum of Natural History who has made sig- nificant explorations. 906 rg 4 r I9 ROW I: R.

Orig- inating seven years ago and recently under the direction of Mr. Spielman and Mr. Mazziotta, this ambitious group of mad scientists invaded the chem lab every week. Independent of the G. O., they passed a hat every now and then to buy the necessary equipment and chemicals. A busy program included field trips, movies, and a big party at the end of the year. However, the main part of their agenda was the demon- strations prepared by the members. The activities of the chemistry club prove that Einstein has nothing on Davis. Serious young scientists found in the ADVANCED SCIENCE group opportunities for experiments beyond the line of class duty. The members gave freely of their study periods in order to acquire more lab time to work at their Nobsessionw. The goal of all these Chem-men was the Westinghouse Scholarship, a sum awarded by the Westinghouse Corporation for out- standing work in science. This year, one of the members achieved honor- able mention in this competition. io ogy CM Q Anyone who ventured too near room 306 while the BIOLOGY CLUB was in session was in danger of finding himself with one less finger or possibly one less hand, for the members of the club had decided to watch the growth of hamsters, small rodents with very sharp teeth. The result of this was a weekly exodus from room 306 to the nurse's office. This hamster study was just one of the many animal experiments performed by the members of the club this year, under the sponsorship of Dr. Ruth E. Landis. The members of the club also adopted the Rosary Hill Hospital, which cares for can- cerous poor. Making pads and bandages for the patients was among their contributions to this hospital. Is it going to rain tomorrow? Davisites no longer had to guess. All they needed to do was consult the FORECASTERS, formerly the Meteorology Club, which was reorganized at the beginning of the Fall term to give students some practical experience in the use and interpretation of weather instruments and weather maps. The science department furnished a num- ber of very excellent instruments such as the barograph, humidograph, and thermograph. Club members were assigned certain days on which to read the instruments and make forecasts for the next twenty-four hours. These turned out to be fairly accurate. By the end of the year many of the members had become adept at reading weather signs and making forecasts. ROW 1: F. Baird, H. Syrkin, N. Hochman, M. Horo- witz, ROW 2: M. Stern, R. Sanders, B.

It was not surprising, for within, the members of EL ATENEO-the Span- ish club to you-were practicing their favorite tongue. Founded thirty years ago by its present faculty adviser, Miss Florence Leighton, the club has had a long and colorful history. With im- proving the Spanish spoken by Davis- ites as its primary purpose, it met semi-monthly, usually for a session of games and songs. The special plans for this year included a discussion of the schools in Spain and Columbia and a trip to see a Spanish play. When 'GAllons enfants de la pat- rie" echoed through the halls, it was obvious that LE CERCLE FRANCAIS was beginning another meeting under the direction of Miss Quinlan and Miss Cheney. The members presented French skits which were designed to give added practice in speaking and understanding French. On alternate weeks the French Club packed boxes of school supplies, ftoy cars and trucks for the boys, and small dolls for the girlsj to be sent to L7Ecole Saint Joseph in France, adopted by Davis last year. At Christ- mas time, each member of the club sent a card to a French child in Flers and Thionville. and ouci "On parle francais ici" is the appropriate motto of SANS SOUC1, Davis, third year French Club spon- sored by Mrs. Stiles. The purpose of this organization, which was founded in 1909 by Miss Edna Palmer, was to provide its members with an oppor- tunity for practice in speaking correct French. The members, adorned with their round gold "Fleur de Lis" pins, met semi-monthly at each other's homes. These gatherings were spirit- edly French, but those present found they could easily talk their way out of involved conversations by using their widely practiced ale ne sais pas." The faces of the students were usually beaming when listening, except for an occasional dull, blank look, for all members had averages of 85 per cent or better in French. 1950 was one of the clubis best seasons, for three guests from France added atmosphere to "les rendezvous" by becoming members. They enlivened the meetings by telling of French life, customs, legends and history fen francaisl. Thus the members received valuable first-hand in- formation. ROW 1: H. Benwitt, R. Lum, C.

Closing the door carefully behind her, Mrs. Hiller escaped to the solitude of the third floor hall and proceeded to tell us of the history of her club. fAn earlier History Club organized in 1913, had terminated in 19215.

Meeting twice a month, the members practiced the fundamentals of parliamentary procedure and extemporaneous speeches as well as prepared talks. With this invaluable experi- ence behind them, many members entered the Extemporaneous Speaking Contests. The winners in the Junior Extemporary Contest that were members of the club were Catherine LaGuardia and Frances Baird.

With their books balancing consistently and their figures adding up accurately, the members received good basic training in their future pro- fession. This activity also helped the students perfect their school work, since the members were all enrolled in commercial courses. This year, members took a trip to a down- town bank, heard several speakers, one of whom was Mr. Sobek from the Mount Vernon Trust Company, and discussed the intricacies of book- keeping and accounting at their Thursday after- noon meetings. Founded in 194-7, the club has done much in providing a useful extracurricular activity at Davis. eruice ROW 1: T. Altobelli, A. Aurisy, 1. Fontana, F. Fay, E. Paul, M. Palla- dino, B. Russell, N.

During their study periods, members served the school in many ways. Although the students might have had anything but kindly feelings toward the attractive girl who collected that udeadlyn pink slip, the former had to recog- nize that that activity of the Service Club was also an important one. Daily, a visitor to the office could see ambitious young ladies plying their tasks of typing, tiling, sorting mail, and acting as junior secretaries to the administration. Still another notable activity of this club was the publishing of a magazine called HThe Greggitew, written entirely in shorthand. In respect to loyalty and effort in making our school tops, the Service Club cannot be beaten. OUR TOWN CLUB ROW 1: E. Jacobson, J. Posner, P. Alpers, M. Miller, M. Stanco, D. Cook, P.

POLICE MUGGING ROOM MAYOR FOR A DAY imma: 4 1 '-,' -f f V H . lfllf' Seated behind the mayor's desk at City Hall were two men. both of whom were mayors. 0ne's face was that of Mount Vernon's William Hart Hussey: the other. a younger face, belonged to our own Clifford Storms. The corridors of City Hall echoed with eager footsteps on De- cember T. 19-19. Once more the members of OUR TOWN CLUB had taken command of the inner workings of the government of the city of Mount Vernon. From the fourth floor fire alarm system to the basement dental clinic, interested students explored City Hall. Behind the impressive doors of the Wlater Bureau, the student commissioner poured anxiously over charts showing the serious- ness of the current water shortage. Two floors above, within the confines of the Department of Public Wforks, "officials" for the day appraised the plans for the housing projects under con- struction on Site A. Davisites recorded in the official ledgers of Mount Vernon everything from marriages, in the ofhce of the City Clerk, to deaths, in the Bureau of Vital Statistics. For one day Mount Vernon was really f'Our Town." It was one afternoon five years ago that one hundred fifty Davisites filed into the audi- torium on the Hill Top for the first meeting of Our Town Club. Advised by its founder, Mrs. Walter Addis, the members visited City Hall for the first time on December 7, 1945, but over night A DAY AT THE DENTAL CLINIC Olflflfl Our Town Club had become the largest and most popular club at Davis. A tradition of efficiency grew up over the years among the elected and appointed uofficialsf, The best example of this took place during the first Our Town Day in 194-5. So seriously did the Commissioner of Public Works take his responsi- bility that he arose at dawn and was supervising garbage disposal at the city incinerator at the early hour of six-thirty. No wonder that our municipal employees were impressed by the 'fofficialsw for the day! But back again to this year! Across the street from City Hall a student commissioner learned Mount Vernon's methods of law enforce- ment at the Police Department. A Davisite ac- companied the fire chief in his bright red sedan to the scene of a minor blaze. Farther south in 'fOur Town" the 'fSuperintendent of Schoolsw and the "President of the Board of Education" saw for the first time the other side of our school system. From Bronxville to the Bronx, from Yonkers to Pelham, members of Our Town Club saw and ran the City of Mount Vernon, while their official acts were carefully recorded by the photographer of the uDaily Argusf' whose editor, in turn, loaned these photographs to the 6fMaroon and Wfhitef' Some day in the future the green curtain of the voting booth will be before us. It will be our responsibility to choose the people who will direct our city government. Who will be better prepared than a member of Our Town Club, who has seen and worked in City Hall, to choose the future officials of the City of Mount Vernon? Although December 7 was the biggest day on the club calendar, members met every two weeks during the year under the supervision of its new adviser, Miss Rouget. Movies, speakers, and other means were used to bring 'fOur Townw closer to club members. Many members realized for the first time that although they had lived here all their lives they had never witnessed the inner workings of the government of their own home town. As one member admitted rather sheepishly, 'GI saw Congress in session, but I had never been inside City Hall, before joining Our Town Club." 29 As time marched on, new advances in science resulted in new activities in high school. Unlike the graduate of 1900, this year's high school senior was given the advantage of today's progressive visual education, which included the showing of slides and motion pictures. In the spring of 1947 the Davis PROJEC- TION CLUB was formed under the sponsorship of Miss Agnes Padou. This club was organized with the purpose of teaching students to operate Davis slide and movie projectors. Trained op- erators then helped any teacher who wanted films shown in his class. - Through the year this club performed a valuable service for its high school, and all students were familiar with the boy or girl who 'Lunflinchinglyw gave up a class period to show a film which would hold the lucky audience spell- bound. roiecfion CM ROW 1: R.

For the past three years, under the able leadership of Mr. Miller, our Davis photo- fiends have been clicking with great success. Formerly hindered by a lack of equip- ment and money, The Davis lensmen have risen from the previous depths of despair to the present heights of photographic art. Ever striving for added knowledge, the club arranged a program of demonstrations and experiments designed to attract any sincere photographer. Posted on all modern techniques, they even took some pictures for the best yearbook in the country! Rising from the developer and solidifying in the fixer, our club expected to he framed as the best club in Davis. If effort and ability count at all, Mr. Mil1er,s boys should make it. Some authorities say that they have already done so. L'Ooh, that hurts", cried one of the brave fencers as he awkwardly parried a blow. Yes, the FENCING CLUB members were at it again, but they no longer had a coach. This circumstance, however, did not force the club to give up any more than it had in some of the other years since 1939, when it was a struggle for would-be fencers to develop club teams. At the onset of its history, the Fencing Club had an excellent record. Guilio D'Angio, who was one of Davis' iinest fencers, acted as coach. After he left, there was no one to guide the members, so the c1ub's activities practically discontinued. ln 1948 and 1949 while Mr. 'Os- borne, an interested citizen, acted as coach, the club revived marvelously, with the team winning five victories. This year, although the club was without an instructor, one could still hear foils ringing in room 9. 31 Q.. CM ROW 1: J. Reitano, H. Stasheff, H. Schwartz, A. Schwartz: ROW 2: L. Butler, R.

Marks Two contestants sat facing each other in room 207 awaiting the final moment, every nerve straining. These two tense people were members of the CHESS CLUB, sponsored by Mr. Phillips, about to engage in this game of skill. As they sat, visions of checkmates danced through their heads, and well they might, as any game played in the club might lead to a place on the Davis Chess Team. This close competition between the mem- bers was, perhaps, the reason for the team's superlative record. Since its inception in 1918, Davis has won the Westchester chess crown six- teen years out of the thirty-two, the last seven in a row. G'Three no trumpfi said South, "six spadesf, countered East, g'Pass," cried North and West excitedly. Miss Brown stood by in amazement while East made a Grand Slam. This was a typical meeting of those for- tunate members of the BRIDGE CLUB who since 1947 have gathered in the teachers lunch- room every 2nd and 4th Tuesday in order to perfect their skill. During these 'asojournsw the members were at liberty to play at whatever table they chose, always guided by the expert technical advice of Miss Brown. To prove that the Bridge Club was strictly Min the knoww as to card games, the organization straying slightly from its implied title, practiced the fine art of Canasta. And so, we leave one more frozen deck to the ardent members of the Bridge Club. 32 Mi ge R. Bael, J. Woolf, A. Kahan, A Schwartz, J. Posner, M. Hess, Miss Brown E. Yavelow, H. Levy, S.

Among their many interesting activities was a trip to Grand Central Station where they sang Christmas Carols, an afternoon's singing at the Westchester Womanis Club, and a program of Christmas music for the members of the Exchange Club, and as a climax to their first term's work, participation in the Sectional Music Festival of the N. Y. State School Music Association at White Plains. One has only to hear them sing to appreciate the cul- tural value they add to Davis. 36 Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-do is still our musical scale although the alto, bass and soprano parts in the Davis CHORUS have many times changed hands. From the time when the group was formed by Mr. Nielsen in his senior year at Davis until 1944, it functioned under two separate names- '4The Boys' Glee Club" and MThe Girls, Glee Club." Finally, co-education Won out and the two groups united to form the Davis Chorus. Now, adorned in new choir robes and sup- plied With electric candles, the Chorus adds great- ly to our assemblies and musical programs. :felt ea fm ROW 1: S. Jacobs, M. Copeland, O. Potts, B.

Portman, Mr. Randall Through the Windows of room 207, a medley of musical sounds reached the ears of Pop Phillips. uClose those windows!" shouted the popular teacher of Caesar and Cicero. Yes, the eighth period had arrived with the ORCHESTRA adding to Davis High the sounds of its practice. During the last period every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, the orchestra, under the capable direction of Mr. Randall, could be found patiently practicing. Each time the Dramatic Society gave a performance, the orchestra was there, adding its musical background to the suc- cess of the production. Traveling each year to White Plains for the County Music Festival, the orchestra members, as a result of their constant practice, brought honor not only to themselves. but to Davis High. Ending each year on a solemn note, the orchestra accompanies the maroon-clad graduates as they march proudly out of Wood Auditorium, diplomas in hand. It was in another era, in the year 1906, that the auditorium of Mount Vernon High first echoed with the sounds of a school orchestra. During that eventful Winter the group, underlhe direction of its founder, Mr. Emil Nielsen, dis- tinguished itself by playing the uPinafore" at the City Opera House. In those days the orchestra was made up entirely of boys, for it was not until almost ten years later that feminine musicians joined the orchestra of Mount Vernon High. Now, forty-four years later, the orchestra is still one of the largest and most active organ- izations at Davis. Each Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, Mr. Randall raises his baton and the forty odd members start to play. 4 Far above in 207 Pop Phillips was heard to shout, "Open that Window! Thcy're playing my favorite kind of music, Latin American!" 37 5111 ULULJ l0Uf'lf 85671185 I. PENNY CATCHERS 3. WE KNEW HIM WHEN 2. HEADQUARTERS 4.

Potts, Mr. Randall Davisites are so accustomed to the sound of their BAND at football games and similar affairs that they take their talented Sousa-men for granted. However, prior to 1939 there was no such musical organization to give life to the school. Why, at that time students could actually study in silence! The band's tremendous spirit has carried it to new heights this year, the program being climaxed in the opinion of some with the best band concert in the history of the school. At this event, from the moment MDoc" Randall, their inspired leader, stepped to the podium, Hill Toppers knew that their band was something to be proud of. After the last of the be-bop, blues, and marches had been heard, a show of appre- ciation was given by the crowd that bought tears to the eyes of many stalwart musicians. Earlier this year, the students showed their faith in the Band by successfully completing a community-wide drive for new uniforms, cap- tained by Miss Brown and Doctor Landis. Scenes from the drive at the police station and along the route of the parade are shown on the opposite page. Although they are a closely-knit unit, the Band is divided into several sections, the best illustration of these being the brass sextet. Show- ing iine uesprit de corps", they have delighted Davis assemblies several times as well as sup- porting the band fest with their efforts. While proving their Worth in competitive recitals at White Plains, members of our band received several individual HAM Ratings. This merely verified the fact that they are as good as We, the students, think they are. Credit must also go to Ted Pizzarello, the leading participator in Band activities. Through his work in promoting the band uniform drive, and his inspired music while playing in the Band, Ted must be recognized as Davis' number one up-and-coming musician. All Davis agree that, after a successful year, the Davis High School Band has many more triumphs within their grasp, and all antici- pate a future Band recital. 39 'S a 21 eiefee he BUSINESS BOARD ROW 1: J.

Sprinz Back in the early 1900's, the Mount Ver- non High School ANNUAL reproduced pictures of coy flappers, stern teachers and romantic ath- letes. As the times changed, so did the Annual, and in 1926 the MAROON and WHITE emerged -a new name and a modern format. On bright, sunny afternoons, when most Davisites were enjoying cherished freedom, the ambitious members of the MAROON AND WHITE EDITORIAL STAFF labored amidst clicking typewriters, past annuals, pictures to be identified, senior polls, hundreds of reports, stories and art plates. In charge of the less glamorous side of producing the yearbook was the MAROON AND WHITE BUSINESS BOARD. If it were not for the seemingly endless task of arranging student and faculty photo appointments, selling sub- scriptions to students, selling advertisements, securing payments, filing letters, bank statements and financial reports, keeping the books bal- anced, plus delivering the yearbook to the awaiting subscribers, the job of the Business Board would be a comparatively simple one. However, under the expert guidance of Mr. Sundermann, who this year assisted with his twelfth issue of the uMaroon and White", every- thing was done efficiently and promptly. Much credit for this year's Annual goes to Harold Schwartz and Josh Furman, co-editors, Richard Pielli, whose beautiful cover design we are proud of, Paul Mulaire, who completed three years of service on the art staff, Miss Hall and Mr. Dodds, who supervised the art work, Miss Cahalan, the guiding light of the Editorial Board, Mr. Sundermann, and their combined staffs of approximately fifty Writers, artists, typists and business assistants. The first annual, appearing in 1900, was produced with a much smaller staff. Started by only four editors, the complete book cost less than one hundred dollars, many times less than today's expenses. We were fortunate to have one of those original editors, Mr. Albert S. Davis, return fifty years later to pose with his young successors of 1950 as shown on the opposite page. 41 cwizi i - new EDITORIAL BOARD ROW 1: M. Cronin, C. LaGuardia, L. Hoey, D. Branner, N.

Not all the time or it would never have been able to walk away with first honors at the Columbia Press Convention each year, but the annual April Fool's Issue was cer- tainly '6Cuckoo.9" April Fool's Day came in with a bang this year as the bright orange uDazed Lo-News" was distributed to the students. The paper featured many unusual stories. Perhaps you remember the article uChink Foils Brink," which had a half page picture of the former's notorious auto- mobile in front of the freight yards with uban- dits" Cliff Storms and Frank Spicciati 'cshooting it out," or maybe you recall the picture of Davis going up in smoke as a result of a direct hit from an H-Bomb. At the Columbia Scholastic Press Con- vention Martin I-Iarris, Editor-in-chief, was chair- man of a forum 'iMake-up in a School News- paper". Several other members of the uI'Ii-News" Staff participated in the discussion along with student editors from all parts of the country. All the members of the staff were permitted to attend the convention, which lasted for three 42 days. On the last day, a luncheon was held at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City at which the Sunday Editor of the NEW YORK TIMES spoke to the group. From little acorns big oak trees grow, and the MO1'acle", the infant Hi-News, started in 1900 as a semi-monthly journal. But an energetic EDITORIAL BOARD could not be kept down. Within a few years, its publication became a monthly journal, containing news, literary work, sports stories, and even gossip. When the name of our school was changed to Davis High School in 1933, the uOracle" went through a metamor- phosis and emerged as the A. B. Davis uI'Ii-News". In order to get all the work done in its proper place, the present Editorial Board was divided into four main sections-news, feature, sports, and make-up, with Mr. George Cohen, Davis teacher, as the faculty adviser. This year, for the first time since the MI'Ii-News" has been in operation, the paper changed its size and make-up. The six-page, four- column edition was no more, but in its place was a more effectively printed four-page, six- column paper. BUSINESS BOARD ROW 1: J. Woolf, H. Benwit, B. Kronish, T. Weil, ROW 2: E.

Pucci, Mr. Altschuler Behind the door of 204B, mysterious and isolated, at the end of the second floor, one could see the hurly-burly, confusion, and disputation that went into the making up of each issue of the f'Hi-News". In 1901, the paper was called the "Oracle", but after the building of A. B. Davis High School on the hilltop, it took the name of the dHi-Newsw to coincide with its high position. The main duty of the H1-NEWS BUSI- NESS BOARD was the financial responsibility of the paper. Perhaps this accounted for the tendency of some of the members of the staff to write on the walls! They were trying to balance the books! Another important and highly diffi- cult job was obtaining subscriptions from the students. This past year, with the aid of the force- ful MHi-News" Reps, more than eleven hundred persons subscribed. A new plan was introduced in taking subscriptions. If someone was desirous of buying the paper, but was not able to do so at the time of the drive, he could give a fraction of the sum to the Rep and pay the rest when he was financially prepared. Such a plan proved very successful in helping those students who daily frequented ltchums and the Broken Drum. Students on the Board learned the best method of approaching people when asking for ads, the art of cooperating with others, and the actual work involved in publishing a high school newspaper. Entirely written, edited, copy-read, galley-read, proofread, and circulated by the staffs, the HHi-Newsf' was available only by sub- scription. ' This year, the staff again attended the Annual Columbia Scholastic Press Association Conference at Columbia University, where they conducted a forum on 'Tinancing a School Paper Through Advertisingw. The paper received first honor rating for the sixth consecutive year, along with first place in the National Scholastic Press Association Contest of Minnesota, and the Empire State Award given by the University of Syracuse. With these excellent awards went Mr. Altschuler's thirteenth year as a very able faculty adviser and forty-nine years of praise for a wonderful news- paper. 43 ROW 1: R. Kuehner, S. Morgenstern, L.

Shades of 214-1 There goes Miss Brown's "voluntary co- ercion" again. Besides helping at Davis basketball games, BOY MARSHALS served at the football games selling programs and helping with the Band Uniform Drive thus carrying on their tradition begun in 1915 of service to the school and to the community. During the first year of the Marshals, or Boys' Police, they carried billies CMiss Brown 44- could use one of them nowj and assisted the regular Municipal Police with traffic on Saturday mornings. Wherever there was need then for police assistance, Mr. Childs and his Boys' Police were on hand. The duties of the Marshals have increased considerably as has their enrollment. Besides the aforementioned jobs, the Marshals, from their posts, kept traffic moving smoothly through the balls, collected attendance cards, and assisted in the seating of students in assembly. This year Homeroom 214 also played host to Supri Prakof-Santisukh, an exchange student from Siam, and presented him with a gift. They hope to see him again as he seemed anxious to return to Mount Vernon. ROW 1: Miss Lewis, M. Friedman, J. Posner, H. Levy, E. Hoffman, F. Hymer, W. Hartenstein, E. Corwin, J. Coldline, C.

Seifman Yes, these were those helpful GIRL MARSHALS who had aided you in finding your classroom, oh so long ago when you were a soph- omore and Davis seemed a surging mass pushing from room to room. Assembly programs were made more orderly and seating arrangements simpler through the efforts of these upper class women. They devoted their ninth periods to li- brary duty checking the books that left the library, and they spent part of their lunch periods making sure that no utensils were removed from the lunch room. They also joined forces with the Boy Marshals in an effort to keep lunch students ufrom aimlessly wandering around the halls Lun- intentionally' disturbing classes which were in session." gzf ma... Under the supervision of Miss Lewis, head Marshals Betty Freedenberg and Marilyn Fried- man directed the entire force and managed to keep the school operating smoothly. Another one of their many services to the school was their locker duty. They Mpatrolledw the halls in the morning after all the other members of the student body were safely in their home- rooms. If they spied a girl's locker open they closed it, thus performing one more service to the school and earning the gratitude of all with whom they came in contact. 45 Doctor H. R. takes the pulse of Davis every month through his assistants, the H. R. REPS. These elected officers represent each home room and form a useful group for service to the school. Organized in 1940, the Reps this year took on their most responsible task to date. ln addition to representing the students, they tried to help the school store by advertising and selling the weekly specials. Having three members on the G. O. council, the Reps are also in a position to rectify any student grievances. ome oom ,xdcluidem Z I if Olflfle OOIWL ROW 1: F. Baena, E. Hodge, V. Copp, E. Kappus, W.

The HOME ROOM ADVISERS, a group started in 1937 by Miss Lewis, have, indeed proven to be a great source of help to new Davisites. This year, many of them joined a new home room of Sophs only. They also gave the Sophs a party called wllhe Sophomore Saluten. Entertainment in- cluded a one-act play, NAnge1 Child", put on by the Dramatic Society, two movies, and a com- munity sing. ROW 1: L.

Plagued with visions of 200's on his col- lege boards, the nervous Davisite took his place in line to wait his turn. Minutes later, he went forward to hear his fate, encouraged by the girl's friendliness. He knew she was one of the RE- CEPTIONISTS, the chosen few who traded study periods for the opportunity of serving Mr. Childs. She, like others before her since 1941, looked upon this familiar scene for a moment and then returned to her neglected homework. In order to bring the activities of the "Hilltoppers'9 to the attention of the residents of the community there appeared at intervals in the "Daily Argus", under the sponsorship of Mr. Copp, a column entitled 'GDAVIS DOTS AND DASI-IES". The alert Davisites pictured below managed to be at the right place at the right time to get news. They presented an ac- curate record of the major events at Davis, as Well as honoring those Davis students who man- aged to achieve an average of 90 per cent or better. R. Piersall, N.

Each member could probably tell of the time spent in calculating percentages, stretching points, and doing extra work, all with one goal in mind. Also not to be forgotten are the agonized moments these candidates spent at the bulletin board, scanning the newly posted list for the familiar nomenclature, the indignant dash to Miss Low to see why they were not mentioned, the sigh of relief upon finding out that the omission was merely a mistake. Naturally, for some geniuses, it was all merely a matter of course, and there was no extra work, worry or anticipation involved. However, the effort was all repaid in the end by the ample reward received from acquiring mem- bership in Tau Epsilon Pi-that of having been worthy of a great personal honor and having made one's years of work at Davis worthy of remem- brance and recognition.

These are the standards of the NA- TIONAL HONOR SOCIETY, whose symbol is the flaming torch. It was in 1922 that there first appeared at Davis a chapter of this society, which extends throughout the United States, Alaska, and the Philippines. Its members, the worthiest in the senior class, are chosen by the student body and the faculty. Every spring and fall new members are initiated into the ranks of the Society at an in- spiring Honor Assembly. The job does not end here, however, for the National Honor Society was one of the most active organizations at Davis. The Leadership Committee devotes itself to rep- resenting Davisg Scholarship workers tutor stu- dents who need extra help, the Character builders help busy teachers and proctor classes in case of a teacheris absence, Service helps whenever necessary, giving make-up tests and co-operating with the Parent-Teachers Associa- tion. This year, as a new activity, members started computing lists of all those who bavc belonged to the Society since 1922. This list will be valuable if and when an alumni organization is formed. - 1 C . 1 V .

Each year the Society and all Davis Honor Students are guests of the P.T.A. at an honor dinner. Parents and friends are also invited to spend an interesting evening as a last memory of the best of high school days.

Versatility was the keyword for success, because in order to qualify, each candidate par- ticipated in at least 200 hours of active work, staging, directing, and preparing properties as well as appearing behind the footlights. Lights! Camera! Action! All set? This was the behind-the-scenes view of the everready STAGE CREW.

If you attended any of the football games last fall, then you probably saw attractive young ladies imploring you to uplease buy a pro- gram". These were the same girls who sold candy after school in the halls, worked at the G. O. store during their study periods, sold pennants and banners at the rallies, and gave a Christmas party for the Mount Vernon Day Nursery. Their fund- raising tasks resulted in money for both the stu- dent college fund and the G. O. treasury. They also contributed to the fund for the poor at Thanksgiving. uniolf' Qc! 6056 Working hard at promoting friendly in- ternational relations, the Davis JUNIOR RED CROSS Chapter recently sent an album to Turkey in order to acquaint the boys and girls with the American school system, as well as with the city, state and national government. For the first time also, a First Aid course was initiated at Davis. The month of April saw Margot Rusch and David Sagman at Grasslands Hospital, where they entertained for the sick. This year, more- over, added prestige was brought to the club by ALPHA TAU DELTA has for the past 25 years given its time and energy freely. It would be necessary to increase the number of deeds in the motto-Do a good deed every dayyin order that it serve as the motto of this fine organization. Hats off to their hard-working sponsor, Miss Breining, and to the girls of Alpha Tau Delta, whose objective has always been to secure aid for those in need. Undoubtedly Mount Vernon in the future will reap the reward in social bene- fits through the efforts of these workers who received their training early. its president, Robert Bell, who was chosen to represent Westchester at a White Plains Con- ference. The club was first organized in 1930 by a group of girls who uwanted to help." During World War II the organization divided into Bundles for Britain and similar groups, all under the direction of the Red Cross. Now the club does everything from send- ing gifts to the tuberculosis hospital to packing gift boxes for abroad. ir 5 i fad lfjofunfeem With much honking of horns and calling back and forth, about fifteen girls set out daily for the Mount Vernon Girls' Club. There they served as student leaders for the members in the five-to-twelve-year age group. The GIRLS' CLUB VOLUNTEERS, one of the comparatively newer clubs at Davis, was organized three years ago under the faculty sponsorship of Mrs. MacDonald. In the short time that it has been in existence, its membership has grown until this year it included about ninety enthusiastic girls. Each one went to the club one day a week to conduct a class in cooking, crafts, games or perhaps dancing. Many a little 52 girl had spoiled her supper nibbling on the goodies prepared in the kitchen, or perhaps been inspired to become a great dancer during a lesson in the main room. During the year several parties were held, among them, the annual Christmas Party and a MBackward Party" at which the children wore their clothes back-to-the-front and pinned the tail on the Donkeyis nose! The eagerness with which the Davis girls were awaited and the joy with which they were greeted, proved ample reimbursement for the Volunteers. ROW' 1: M. Goldberg, S. Ostrowsky. E.

Davis' overall record was 7-1 including two non-league victories over Pelham Memorial and Edison Tech. FOOTBALL TEAM - 1899 A highlight of the season was the placing of four boys on all-county teams, with sixteen boys from Davis mentioned in the voting-a county high. Charlie Buehler, center, and Pete Berland, quarterback, were first team selections, While Teddy Ramsey, a speedy halfback, and Mike Rossi, a powerful guard, were chosen on the second team.

White Plains gave Davis its only loss 25-6, hut the following week, they were beaten 28-0 by New Rochelle. The Huguenots had rolled up six straight victories, scoring 218 points to their op- position's 0. The former were distinct favorites to trounce the Maroon. How- ever, a Friday evening rally set off the upset spark, which prevailed in the Sat- urday game. The Hilltoppers caught New Rochelle Hat-footed in the first few min- utes ofthe game, when fleet-footed Teddy Ramsey outmaneuvered the Purple sec- ondary, took a long pass from Pete Ber- land and went 50 yards for the first score against New Rochelle. So surprised were the Huguenot players, and so incensed with the thought of victory was Davis, that there was no stopping us. As long as any annals of Davis foothall are kept, the New Rochelle game will rank among the hest for one of Davis' greatest teams. ap! MW? J. Adams, A. Friedman, L. Hjorth, H. Srhecter, P. Grape, E.

They looked great in those bright new uniforms, which they so proudly displayed at the band concert. This group has certainly come a long way since they were Hrst organized in 1937 by Mr. Licht. Marching down the field with skirts flying, and high stepping, they raised many a cheer from the bleachers. Day after day these girls could be seen practicing out on the field. Their tricky formations, including Stars and special throws, caught many admiring glances from all sides.

Whereas usually only two or three cheerleaders showed up for basketball games in the past, this year there were five or six at most of the games at home and away, Joan Morace and Jackie Smith missing only one game all year. The cheerleaders had twenty-three cheers and chants in their repertoire, including six new ones originated during the basketball season. In the final game of the year, the girls introduced the novel idea of wearing green hats bearing the names of the starting five players. The girl cheerleaders took over completely during the basketball months. After Patience Plummer, Barbara Sobek, and Meryl McCarthy graduated in January, Doris Rosenberg, Margot Rusch and Charlotte Click substituted very capably. Upholding the dependability of the cheerleaders, Joan Morace and Margot Rusch spent four dollars on a taxi to get to the Port- chester basketball game! In all, there were twenty-four regular and three assistant cheerleaders in action this year with Charlie Dee and Mary Ann DeCarlo acting as assistant captains. P066 Olfllfl fin? ROW 1: D. Werle, V.

Washington Although success in CROSS COUNTRY this year might he termed only moderate, there were a few individual performances that stood out. James Gillian was the boy who led the Maroon to victory in its few victorious dual meets. However, in the Sectional Championships at the Rockefeller Estate in Tarrytown, Jay Koster pulled the biggest surprise. Koster had been coming along rapidly all year, and as can be shown by his improvement, he did better with each successive meet. lay, who had been flirting with the fourteen minute mark all year, shocked everyone by finishing seventeenth in the W.I.A.A., and then came on to move up to his fourteenth, in a field twice as large. In his successful venture in the Sectional, Koster even defeated James Gillian who was fifteenth. However, Gillian was hampered during the race because of a sore muscle in his leg. He had previously finished seventh in the W.I.A.A. meet. The third man for Davis all season long was Hank Washington. Washington, who used Cross Country as a conditioner for his specialty in Track, the 440, was twenty-seventh in the W.I.A.A., a big jump from 55th the preceding year. Others who were among the top for Davis were Ray Stewart and Lou Salzman. Salzman, incidentally, was Davis, individual winner in the first meet of the year. The competition was stronger this year than in any year in the past. Jerry Utter, of New Rochelle set a new county record, while more runners just got under thirteen minutes than at any time in the past. Returning next year will be Gillian and Koster along with Salzman and others in the second Eve. BREASTING THE TAPE 61 galefgaf VARSITY SCORES VARSITY ROW I: C. Shannon T. Ramsey, S. Uzzle, H.

NEW ROCI-IELLE .......... 57 DAVIS ............ 48 I Off to a blazing start the Davis BASKET- BALL TEAM slowed down at midseason, because of the loss of four players, but finished with an ll-5 record. Davis' early season spirit caused much controversy in the county as experts won- dered what a Maroon squad, with Ted Ramsey, Harvey Billingham, Dave Brown, and Roddy Tenaglier. would have fared against such out- standing teams as New Rochelle and Pelham. New Rochelle, the W.l.A.A. champions, beat Davis twice by about ten points due mainly to their overwhelming height, five boys over six feet three. However, height lead proved no prob- lem to the Halstead men earlier in the year as Billingham and Brown, both six feet three, held their own against even the taller boys, with Sam Uzzle. a six foot two and one-half sophomore, chipping in. To illustrate how important the loss of these four was, one has only to look at the figures. Davis accumulated a record of 7-0 before the January graduation and a 9-5 total afterwards. Wihite Plains, which had fallen victim to us 50-30 in the first encounter, defeated us by 23 points in the second meeting, a difference of 43 points. The leading scorer for Davis was Charley Shannon, a speedy forward, who racked up 157 points, an average of 9.8 points per game. Before Billingham graduated, he had averaged 13.6 points. Second highest scorer on the team was Lou Cerrone, the captain and play-maker. In the latter half of the season, Cerrone was the only regular who remained from the '48-949 team. In the all-county balloting at the end of the year, there was not a Davis man on the first team. However, Harvey Billingham and Ted Ramsey made the second team, despite playing only half the season. As a matter of fact, Billing- ham was only one vote shy of the first team. In the past, none of Coach Irv Halstead's teams have ever lost by more than ten points. However, there is always a first, and the first came in the second White Plains game. And was it decisive! Davis was in the ball game until Charley Shannon, Lou Cerrone and Sam Uzzle fouled out. Then, the Maroon completely fell apart and lost by 23 points. The following week Davis lost by 9 points to New Rochelle in a game that could well have ended by a 5 point margin, if the refs had called it a different way. Denny Huelfer hit with a set shot as the buzzer, ending the first half, sounded, but the refs disallowed it. However, when Jesse Arnelle, New Rochelle's all-W.l.A.A. center, tapped in a rebound as the game ended, the refs ruled it good. The Hilltoppers hit their stride in the final two games of the year, topping Portchester and then trouncing Edison. Lou Cerrone hit his two-year high as he piled up 21 points in the Edison game. When he fouled out in the final quarter, he received a tremendous ovation, just as Ramsey, Billingham, Brown and Tenaglier had, a month and a half earlier. The Maroon squad for 1951 seems to take on a bright air considering the fact that four of the five second half starters are returning. With Charley Shannon, Arthur Goodson, Sam Uzzle and Denny Huelfer, Buss Enke, and Herbie Herling all returning for the season, Coach Hal- stead will have a team to work around. Bud Blair and Joe Notargiocomo will have a half season, both being January graduates. The Jayvee, under the tutelage of Coach Gordon Bucher, had a mediocre season, winning eight games while losing the same number. How- ever, the team was very well balanced with many boys breaking into starting roles, and no indi- vidual standouts. After winning only one dual meet all season, the Davis SWIMMING TEAM surprised all by taking third place in the first annual WI.A.A. swimming championships. With Neil Sharpls first in the 200 yard freestyle, with the 160 yard relay team and Charlie Buehler, a 40 man, taking thirds, with the 180 yard medley relay and John Pittari in the diving, placing fourth, Davis earned 14 points, quite a distance behind New Rochelle and Mamaroneck, first and second, respectively, but, three and one half HEAD OVER HEELS? 64 wimming earn ROW 1: L.

Out for three weeks with measles, Sharp had previ- ously been beaten by Walt Leffler of New Rochelle and Charlie Treftzer of Mamaroneck. These three were seeded into the first heat. Leiller and Treftzer passed the 100 yard mark, neck and neck, with Neil about three yards behind. How- ever, Sharp began to pick up in the final sixty yards and caught the two at the beginning of the last lap. A11 three sprinted towards the finish line, but Neil won by about a half yard. Incidentally, Sharp started a mild epi- demic on the swimming squad, when he spread the measles to Frank Vener, a diver, and Bob Goldstein, a breast stroker. We hope that he started another epidemic by his victory in the WI.A.A. Coach Bob Minerley will have a solid nucleus to work around next year. With the loss of only four men through graduation, Charlie Buehler, Dick Babkin, Frank Nasanow, and Bob Goldstein, there will be twelve returnees from the sixteen boys now on the squad. With Bob Smith and Eddie Knox for the shorter distances, Neil Sharp and Harvey Fried in the 200, Dave Waxman and ,Ioe Gottlieb as breaststrokers, Hank Syrkin, Bob Sander and Bob Sussman for the back stroke, and John Pit- tari and Frank Vener in the diving, the compe- tition for new-comers on the swimming team will be strong.

Sklaver Finding consolation only in a few individ- ual performances, the Davis TRACK TEAM terminated their season by scoring only 8 points in the Sectional meet at White Plains. Our only markers came as a result of Frank Falco's thirds in the dashes and Paul Mulaire's fourth in the high jump. The track squad opened its season by suc- cessfully downing Portchester. However, they did not win another dual meet after that and finished seventh in the WI.A.A. No doubt the outstanding figure of the team last year was Falco who scored three straight doubles before being defeated in the Wil.A.A. meet. It is only fair to mention that he was handi- capped by a sore leg during the last few weeks. Paul Mulaire came into his own last year by establishing himself as one of the county's top high jumpers. Leaping five feet ten on two occasions and five feet eleven on one, Mulaire was one of Davis' few point scorers in both the WI.A.A. and Sectional. Hank Washington took advantage of his long stride to become one of WCStCl16Sl61',S better quarter milers as can be shown in his 51.9-440 against White Plains in a dual meet. Trying to run Lou Jones race in the Sectional kept him from attaining even greater heights. jane Bernie Hassell took third in the WI.A.A. mile, his only race of the year, while Tenaglier hit nineteen feet, seven and one half inches in the broad jump for the only other praiseworthy performances.

Again attesting to the fact that if it is a Halstead-coached team, it has to he good, the 1949 edition of the BASEBALL TEAM captured the western division of the W1I.A.A. only to lose to Mamaroneck High in the playoffs. Leading the well-halanced attack was a strong pitching staff headed hy Larry' Altman, Tony Panietteri and Charlie Ehret. Captain and sparkplug of the team, Teddy Ramsey, the shortstop, whose hatting average of more than .400 indicates his prowess at the plate, formed one of the county's top clouhle-play com- binations along with Pete Berland.

First hase and third hase developed into season-long battles, with Mannie Lauria and Carlton Flick fighting it out at first base while Bernie Fava and Bob Hruhsch had the same prohlem at third. The catching staff was another of Coach Halstead's bright spots with Richie Maurno and Boh Cimmino alternating the chores. Another team which ended a successful season was Coach Seymour Rothman's BASE- BALL JAY-VEE. Two years ago Rothman came up with Flick, Berland, Fava, Panettieri and Roosevelt Ramsey among others who made the varsity grade the next year. Last yearis logical choice was Morris Stickle, who registered 14 strikeouts in a six-inning game. ROW 1: V. Basnight, E. Lauria, R. Hruhsch, C. Flick, C. Buehler, P. Berland, T. Farewell, M.

Davis really proved to be the hig surprise ill the WI.A.A. Tennis League. Bowing, by only one point. to Mamaroneck and New Rochelle, the netmen copped second place in the League with four victories against two defeats. Consistently fine performances were turned in by the Davis doubles men. Chuck Potter and Mickey Meerbaum were undefeated in seven matches. while Artie Greenhouse and Dave Subotky were victorious in six of their seven engagements. Steady singles play was demon- strated hy Martin Creenstein and Mark Fried- man. Coached hy Dr. E. A. Novick, the Maroon established itself as a contender for WI.A.A. honors on the tennis court of Westchester with Meerhaum and Greenstein among those to return. One sport that is slowly creeping hack into Davis, athletic focus is GOLF. Led hy Coach Harry Collins, the squad practiced during the week at Vernon Hills Country Cluh. The season certainly could not he termed too successful, as the hoys won only one match all season, that played against Roosevelt High of Yonkers. The squad was eaptained hy .loe Feinberg, who was one of the low scorers along with Joe Camherato. Both boys shot in the low eighties. The matches were not decided by the medal scores, hut, instead, by match play. With two hoys from each team in one group, a point was scored hy the duo that won the most holes. In ease of tie the point was split. With one season already past history, the Davis Golfing team can look forward to better times. QW ROW 1: P. Colodny, R. Mich- ealson, R. Bernhachg ROW 2: J.

Some of you may think that only the boys can have championship teams, but the girls of Davis know differently. For once upon a time the GIRLS' BASKETBALL team won six county championships in seven years! Up until the State Board at Albany abolished inter-school basket- ball in 1925, Davis was in a league called the Big Six, which included Yonkers, White Plains, New Rochelle, Mamaroneck, Portchester, and Davis. It was during the first half of the 20's when Miss Wight first came to Davis, that she quickly acquired the habit of turning out cham- pionship teams, except in 1923-24, when the team lost the crown by one game. How is that for thrills? Basketball is the oldest girls' sport at Davis and was being played 'way back in 1906 by the Nausicaa Basketball Club. ir 5 7 afefdaf BOW 1: M. Briglia, G. S1-hafbuch, B.

Diehl After the inter-school games were abol- ished, the feminine athletes had to turn their talents to battling it out between the classes. Naturally, the seniors were expected to win these tournaments, as they were the oldest and most experienced. However, since events not always work out as expected, the seniors usually did not gallop off with the honors. This year, though, it was different, and, ably led by Gloria Schafbuch, the seniors did come out on top, boasting a clean slate of six victories and no defeats, with the two sophomore teams, Soph. 1, captained by Ann Pressman, and Soph. 2, led by Ann Huber, taking second and third places, respectively. 68 audicaa 56.6-1906 0 0 Uflfflnllfl Despite the closing of the pool because of the water shortage. the SNVlNlNllNC CLUB. advised by Miss Kcvlin. managed to get through with all its Junior Life Saving and other Red Cross tests. Since the organization of this sports ac- tivity in the early 1940's. the YMCA pool has been the scene of kicking and splashing every Tuesday afternoon during the school year. This year, the girls were divided into several groups, from be- ginners to accomplished water-bugs, and the pool was churning with activity as each mermaid prac- ticed faithfully her strokes or her dives. Thus these girls worked to develop into smooth and polished champions. .S?0Q86!66l! Something new has been added to the Davis girls' sports! Yes, SPEEDBALL, intro- duced to take the place of field hockey, proved an equally thrilling but less dangerous game. ,lust as in most of the other sports, there was a tournament in which five teams partici- pated-in this case, one senior-junior and four sophomore teams. However, the upperclassmen, led by Mildred U'Hara, were proclaimed Victor- ious, though much competition was provided by the four sophomore teams captained by Marion Frieary, Nancy Ulmstead, Lorene Knowles, and Elaine Simes. The future of speedball at Davis seems favorable, because of the season's success this ROW 1: J. Hoff man, B. Sturtevant, J. Gra ham, M. O,Hara, A. Prof- ke, C. Schafbuchg ROW 2: Miss Taylor, M.

Cornwell As SOFTBALL is one of the comparatively newer sports at Davis, the girls have not had a chalice for real inter-school competition since girls' track was discontinued in 1932. But Davis ball clubs went to bat as late as 1947 against several outside teams, including Rye, Edison, and Roosevelt. and sent teams to different play- days in Westchester county. The Softball tournament this year marked the end of the career of one member of a great sister duo. Jane O'Hara. She and her sister, Millie, had competed against each other in every sport, and since this year furnished Jane's last chance to beat Millie. it seemed probable that the former Senior 2 team would cop the flag.

Through the years there have been teams that have played other schools, but the present-day teams play only an interclass tourna- ment, and sometimes participate in the West- chester Girls' Athletic Association Playdays among the Big Six Teams-Yonkers, White Plains, New Rochelle, Mamaroneck, Portchester, and Davis. This year was Vol1eyball's best year in terms of turnout, and, of the six teams formed, Mildred Oil-1ara's Junior 2's came out victorious ROW 1: A. Katzenstein, L. Coldfine, L. Lubart, H.

Once upon a time the racquet-wielders played a full schedule including many of the top teams in Westchester County, but after 1935 they had to be content with playing a tournament each year among themselves, and perhaps one or two outside teams.
