It is unpleasant in that it means parting ffom friends who have heen our constant companions for many years. And, in an eyfort to allay the sorrow of this parting, we have constructed this yearhooh, so that in the years to come we may examine it and revive the fond memories of our high school days. 4 THE 1931 SPHINX Board Members .

A To Mr. Ereifeld we leave our deepest thanks for the financial, athletic and scholastic advice which he has accorded us. ARTICLE III. To Miss Norris we leave memories, which we hope will be pleasant, of the class of 1931 commercial group. ARTICLE IV. To Coach Rice we leave: i fly Our thanks for arranging the interclass athletic programs, which have given those who are not good enough for the Varsity, a chance to participate in athletics. QZQ The hope of a successful football season, the foundation of which, we feel, has been laid by the '31 squad. ARTICLE V. To the student body as a whole we leave the duty and privilege of perpetuating that good old A. C. H. S. spirit, which, if you would believe the pessimist, already has one foot in the grave. But as long as the football team can tie three of the strongest teams in the country, and the basketball team can lick the Park by 20 points, this spirit will never die. ARTICLE VI. . ' To Mr. Stone we leave the crown jewels of Germany. ARTICLE VII. To the ofhce mimeograph we leave the hope, however small, that it will receive more sympathy than it has heretofore from the senior history department. ARTICLE VIII. To jack Gamsby, Fred Borer and Russel Duff we leave Fred Schaefer's band uniform, to be divided as the cube of the weights of the three beneficiaries. ARTICLE IX. To the forthcoming Senior president we leave Bill Donnelley's ability to Hatter the right people at the right time. 32' THE 1931 SPHINX ARTICLE X. To Dwight Mallet we leave Tom Condon's ability to stop every play through his side of the line. ARTICLE XI. Helen Berthelsen's cheerleading pep to Dot Halberstadt. This, with the bequests she received from the class of 1929, and her own natural ability, ought to make a good cheerleader of her. ARTICLE XII. In keeping with Article IV., Section 2, we leave Cy Walts's and Saul Buc's football proclivities to no one. ARTICLE XIII. We leave Olga Biedron's Grecian profile to the statue of Dante in the southwest corner of the library. ARTICLE XIV. To Mandell Weiss we leave that special prerogative of Sam Buchman's, of using language which, in our grandmother's day, would have been shocking, to say the least. ARTICLE XV. To Virginia Fleck we leave that unerring instinct of Edith Robinson's, which enables her to tell the string from the "B" string nine times out of ten, and thereby play in the state orchestra. ARTICLE XVI. To Lillian Carter we leave our most heartfelt condolences for the loss she will suffer upon Harry Latour's graduation. It's the old, old story of the lass who loved a sailor. ARTICLE XVII. Howard Bangs leaves his perseverance to Bob Masterson. ARTICLE XVIII. We regret to state that we cannot leave Cy Walts' romantic propensities to anyone in this school because a certain young lady in Battin High School has a complete monopoly on them. ARTICLE XIX. Lest we forget: that famous motto: "Gettysburg and Chautauqua, now and forever, one and inseparable," to the class of 1932. Witnesses: G. Freifeld, E. B. Rosecrans, S. Sterling, H. Hoeksema. Signed, THE CLASS OF 1931. 33 r -.-.--v----,-v ?-T--w--'- -v-v - - w X I 4 4 4 P ,,,,,, , W, -J THE 1931 SPHINX 1 The junior Play y The "Boomerang," presented by the class of 1931, Friday evening, March 28, 1930, in the High School Auditorium, proved to be a huge success. By engaging Virginia Xelva as his office nurse, Dr. Summer, who is just begin- ning his medical practice, doorns himself to lifelong torture-the time-worn torture called wedlock. As the play progresses, these two conspire to cure Budd Woodbridge, who is suffering from a severe case of jealousy. His "jealousy bugs" have raised havoc in his brain ever since his friend, Grace Tyler, has devoted her attention to Preston De Witt. The doctor succeeds in separating the two for a month, but on meeting "her," Budd's misery returns two-fold. Contrary to the saying "Absence makes the Heart Grow Fonder-for somebody else," Grace and Budd fall in love-and thus ends their "love story." Dr. Summer finds that he also has more than friendly feelings for his nurse, and the "Boomerang," in the return flight, completely overwhelms four innocent people. The cast was as follows: Sam. Buchman, Carolyn Cone, Charles Preston, Helen Berthelsen, William Donnelly, Mary Goldenberg, Edith Robinson, Marie Maloid, Saul Buc, William Campbell, Howard Bangs, E. Nelson White, Burr Atkinson, john Czarny, Helen Rothman, Alberta Metz, Elizabeth Neunert, and Neil Clark. 36 THE 1931 SPHINX The Junior Promenade On May 10, 1930, the annual junior Prom was given by the Class of 1931 in honor of the Class of 1930. The dance was held in the school gymnasium, and the work done by the decoration committee, headed by Saul Buc, and assisted by Miss Sterling, proved very effective. The ceiling was decorated with numerous streamers of various colors, and one back-board bore the numerals 31 and the other 30. The orchestra's box was marked off by streamers in a May-pole effect. A beautiful drop, painted by Rosalind Sullivan, decorated the balcony wall. During the evening, from a picturesque rustic booth, refreshments were served by Kathryn Boyer, Marie Maloid and Alberta Metz. Through the efforts of Cy Walts, Al Ritter's orchestra was secured, which added to the success of the many unusual and attractive dances of the evening. Shadow dances were especially enjoyable. The spotlight was operated by joel Peterson. A novelty balloon dance created a great deal of mirth. During one dance the guests were "well-showered" by confetti, which had been cleverly hidden in the ceiling decorations. The patrons and patronesses for the affair were Mr. and Mrs. George Freifeld, Mr. and Mrs. Charles C. Walts, Mr. and Mrs. William Clark, and Mr. and Mrs. Earl B. Rosecrans. With the playing of "Home Sweet Home" by the orchestra, another successful affair of the Class of 1931 was brought to a close. 37 THE 1931 SPHSINX The Senior Play This school year, on December 5th and 6th, the Senior Class presented a melodrama, "Esmeralda," to a very appreciative audience. i The story begins in North Carolina. Esmeralda Rogers, the heroine, loves the hero, Dave Hardy, to which Mrs. Rogers objects. The father likes Dave, but the wife overrules. An iron vein is discovered on the Rogers farm, and after the farms sale, the wealthier and snobbier Mrs. Rogers, with her husband and daughter, goes to Paris. While in Paris Mrs. Rogers, with characteristic ambition, has been trying to marry Esmeralda to a Marquis, a purely mercenary character who cares nothing at all about Esmeralda herself. When the Marquis hears about the loss of the Rogers's money, he immediately loses interest, and Esmeralda and Dave are at last brought together again, and everything ends happily. The cast of characters was as follows: Mr. Elbert Rogers, E. Nelson White, Mrs. Lydia Ann Rogers, Helen Berthelsen, Esmeralda Rogers, Winifred Masterson, Dave Hardy, john Czarny, Mr. Paul Estabrook, Charles Preston, Jack Desmond, Sam Buch- man, Nora Desmond, Dorothy Kuntz, Kate Desmond, Edith Robinson, "Marquis" de Montessin, john Holland, George Drew, Neil Clark, Sophie Brown, Marie Maloid. 38 ,K s THE 1931 SPHINX Our Best Looking Best Athlete .

I Qgmnmmillmwlms bf THE 1931 SPHINX The Orchestra i Under the leadership of Mr. Bork, the orchestra has improved greatly this year. Some of the larger instruments have been purchased by the school, and some have been donated by various civic organizations of the borough. V The orchestra plays every Fridayat the assemblies and for most of the programs put on by the school. In co-operation with the other musical organizations of the school, it gave a concert to defray the expenses met in competing in the state musical contest in New Brunswick. The orchestra was represented in the New Jersey'All-State High School Sym- phony Orchestra at Atlantic City, during the New Jersey State Teachers' Convention, held in November, by Harry Assin, Carolyn Chance, Edith Robinson, and Irving Spector. This year the orchestra will lose the following members: Violin-Edith Robinson, Carolyn Chance, Dorothy Kuntz, Rosalind Sullivan, John Pukit, and Walter Wiggins. Clarinet-Harold Bunje. Trumpet-Abe Zlotnikollf. Tuba-Louis Plotkin. 56 ,THE 1931 SPHINX et l The School Band The band started its work under Mr. Bork this year with a personnel of thirty members. Through a Crowell publishing campaign put on by the school, the band was completely uniformed. Forty-one uniforms were purchased. These did not, however, take care of the rapid growth of the band. Ten more uniforms have been purchased, as the membership in the band is now approximately fifty. The band often plays at assemblies held Friday mornings. It also took part in the concert of the musical organizations of the school in March. The football team also was greatly encouraged by the band's playing, particularly in the Park game, when the band- was first seen in the new uniforms. ' Plans have been made for the organization of a junior band within a few weeks. The object of this band will be to give the newer players practice so that they will be eligible for promotion to the senior band when vacancies occur. The band enters the state band contest inNew Brunswick on May 2nd, This will be the first time an organization of our school has ever entered a contest of this type. We wish them luck! P 67 THE 1931 SPHINX The Senior Girls' Glee Club The Senior Girls' Glee Club meets once a week under the direction of Miss Clark. It has taken part in several assembly programs and in the concert given by the musical organizations in March. Socials were also held at regular intervals to add interest to the year's program. The members are: President, Carolyn Cone, Vice President, Alice Dennyg Secre- tary-Treasurer, Elizabeth Alexander, Librarian, Ruth Kibbe, Pianist, Ruth Libby, Ada Aronowitz, Sylvia Bass, Carolyn Chance, Mary Crowley, Margaret Dahm, Estelle Gold- berg, Thelma Johnson, Madeline Messner, Ruth Mitchell, Edith Robinson, Rosalind Sullivan, Alma Worde, Edith Zweben, Eleanor Andrews, Betty Banks, Ruth Beltz, Gertrude Butler, Ruth Crawford, Doris Creamer, Helen Desmarais, Freida Greenberg, Mabel johnson, Anita Netwick, Olga Olsen, Ruth Ostendorf, Jessie Scott, Dorothy Traphagen, Emma Baute, Gladys Levy, Barbara Mann, Elizabeth Bartlett, Mary Bass, Ruth Buchman, Betty Delano, Edna McCormack, Ethel Marcus, Lillian Rifkin, Jessie Scheideler, Florence Schraegle, Conradine Walts, Rose Zweben. 68 THE 1931 SPHINX 4 The Junior Girls' Glee Club The Junior Girls' Glee Club is composed of girls of the seventh and eighth grades who are interested in singing. They receive valuable training for their work in the senior club, for which this club prepares them. They, too, have appeared in assembly programs and in the concert in March. The members are: Betty Cone, President, Shirley Brown, Vice President, Elibabeth Waltenburg, Secretary-Treasurer, Rosemary Sanderson, Librarian, Adelaide Derrevere, Assistant Librarian, Catherine Du' Plessis, Mildred Feid, Louise Denzau, Betty Cone, Edith Lingerfeldt, Helen Tobin, Elizabeth Waltenburg, Anna Schalef, Clarice Scott, Sarah jane Simpson, Margaret Taylor, Blanche Kontur, Dorothy Hartman, Adelaide Derrevere, Elizabeth Fleck, Elise Nickels, Grace Wood, Helen Meaking, Lois Helfner, Margaret Kibbe, Erma Haley, Betty Norelin, jean Leaming, Muriel Bergh, Phyllis Campbell, Alma Carter, Dorothy Grymes, Anna Kocerlia, Irma Korwick, Rosemary Sanderson, Beatrice Kirson, Pasqualina Cere, Ruth Clark, Margaret Dittman, Margaret Overman, Sylvia Gold, Miriam Olini, Shirley Brown, Gladys Hughes, Jennie Weber, Marion Skonberg, Margaret Forman, Irene Kalakowski, Rosalie Alick. 69 ASSEMBLY , , THE 1931 SPHINX Assemblies g In the days of our fathers, assemblies were usually pretty much of a cut-and-dried thing. I've heard it said on good authority that a most desirable thing then was to be able to "cut" assembly and "get away with it." Every Friday morning we have assembly, and it isn't unusual to hear someone say, "I didn't feel well this morningg I didn't think I'd be able to come to school, but I got here anyway. I didn't want to miss assembly." Who would want to miss assemblies like these? October 10-Columbus Day Q2-Reel Picturej. " 17-Pep Meeting. 24-Farce on Macbeth.

On the technicians' shoulders rests much of the fate of the show. Every property, from the mahogany piano to the perennial jar of smelling salts for the sweet young thing's fainting act, must be in its right place within as short a period of time as possible, so that the audience may not be kept in too much suspense between acts. True, technicians do not have to face the eyes of a critical audienceg but they do have to face the irate eyes of an equally irate actor if they have misplaced a property which is necessary for the furtherance of the plot or the actions of a principal. Q Our technicians have done excellent work. Members of the organization are: joel Peterson, President, Charles Denzau, Secretary-Treasurer, Raymond Reul, Vice President, Harold Wilson, Caroll Guinee, Louis Kuhar, Neil Clark, William A. Don- nelly, George Gleim, Howard Bangs, Harold Bunje, Fred Schaefer, Joseph Orlik, Philip Clark, john Parrish, Arthur Orloffg Mr. Armstrong, Faculty Adviser, 72 THE 1931 SPI-IINX The Playmakers The Playmakers is composed of members of the three upper classes and those members of the Freshman Class who have taken part in dramatic club activities. During the past year the club had complete charge of the Christmas Program, at which time it presented a very amusing comedy, "Susan Gregg's Orphans." It also contributed a sketch to the Book Week assembly program. At present the members are concentrating their efforts on "Come Out of the Kitchen," which is to be given in May. A portion of the proceeds of this production will be used to purchase equipment for the club and the balance will go toward the expenses of a theatre party for the members. The purpose of The Playmakers is to make a study of the construction and inter- pretation of the modern play. To accomplish this, criticisms and reports of plays and motion picture productions are given at the semi-monthly meetings. The advisers of the club are Miss Albach and Miss Morgan. 73 THE 1931 SPHINX The Sphinx Staff Editor-in-Chief SAUL R.

DONNELLY THE 1931 SPHINX The Debate Club C This year the Rutgers Interscholastic Debating League was disbanded, so a new league has been organized. Roselle has joined the group consisting of Cranford, Roselle Park and Scotch Plains. The winner of this group meets the winner of the other group of Union County schools to determine the champion of the league. The question decided on for debate was, "Resolved: That chain stores aredetrimental to the best interests of the American people." On March 6th, at Roselle, the varsity team consisting of Saul Buc, Carolyn Chance, Winifred Masterson and Helen Desmarais, defeated Scotch Plains in their first league debate by a 3-O vote. The next league debate with Roselle Park was won by the same team by a 2-1 vote on March 23rd, at Roselle. On Monday, March 30th, the team went to Cranford for its last league debate to determine the champion of our half of the league. Roselle lost this debate in a very close contest by a 2-1 vote. Other debates also were scheduled with teams which are not in the league to give more experience to the members of the squad. This year the team has been fortunate in having the services of Miss Sterling, who has been of great assistance to Mr. Peeling in coaching the teams. .75 THE 1931 SPHINX The Latin Club The monthly meetings of the Latin Club are always entertaining and instructive. Latin games and discussions interesting to Latin students are enjoyed. The annual evening meeting of the Inter Nos, the club for Seniors and juniors, was held this year for members of the club only, at the home of one of the members, on Monday eve- ning, March 23rd. On March 28th, Mrs. Harten and some of the members made a trip to the Metro- politan Museum of Art in New York City. .

Mr. Hoopes arranged a match with the Summit hillsmen, who are not unhandy with the rifle. Our rillemen hied them to the hill country and "shot them a goodly shoot" with the Summit mountaineers. But the Summit mountaineers proved to be only pioneers at the game, for when the smoke had cleared away, the score was: Roselle, 786, Summit, 502. Then we posted the result in an obscure corner of the bulletin board and resumed bombardment in the nether regions. Word came that to the 'East there dwelt a band of marksmen even more formidable than the first victims. Our men hied themselves to the city and met the Jelfersonians. Again our smooth accuracy carried the day. The score was: Roselle, 462, Thomas Jefferson, 430. A return match was shot, with dear old T. only a shadow of his former self, Roselle, 452, T. J., 403. The annual Booth Cup Match was held this year again. Russell Dulfs winning the cup this year makes it his permanently, as he won it once before. Of a possible 1500, Duff scored 1274, C. Stockberger was the closest competitor, having a score of 1261. , 77 THE 1931 SPHINX The Aff Club If you should happen to wander through the club's stronghold, you would see a variegated profusion of clay models, soap sculptures, masks, miniature stages, posters and sketches, which are ample proof that some of the members must swing a mean brush. I But we should hope so, since the club's purpose is to promote an interest in art and to give students some time outside their regular classes to become more skillful in sketching, modeling or whatever branch appeals most to them. The big event of the season in this club is the Black and Gold Ball or the dance given at Hallowe'en. The members designed the decorations and their costumes. The prize for the best costume was awarded to Laura MacDowell this year. The chairmen of the refreshment, decoration, and program committees, and the mistress of ceremonies were respectively: Margaret Meyers, Virginia Fleck, Andrew Heard and Rosalind Sullivan. The music was provided by "We Weir and his Melody Men." The affair excelled the one of last year. Some excellent work has been turned out this year. It is hoped that it will con- tinue to be excellent, even with the passing of the senior members. . 78 THE 1931 SPHINX I .misss --'---"- s Msg, ,,,L.,, W.. .,.. ...-. i. . .W .. The Varsity Club fYe Wearers of Ye "R"j Many persons no doubt were surprised when it was rumored that Westheld might occupy Roselle's time-worn berth in the Union County Baseball League. The question was referred to the Varsity Club, which held open forum on March 6th, to decide the fate of this sport in our school. After an hour of discussion, it seemed as if the hand of an irrevocable Destiny, clad in a baseball mitt, had been stretched forth, invisible, and as if it had clutched at the hearts of the ball players present, for when a vote was taken, the .club went unanimously for the retention of Roselle's place. Thus was the national sport of America and the poorest paying sport outside the professional leagues, continued for another year in A. C. H. S. The membership has increased quite perceptibly this year. The officers are: "Boots" Ashby, President of Varsity Club, "Sam" Buchman, Captain of Basketball, and "Tom" Condon, Captain of Football. 79 THE 1931 SPHINX The Cheer Leaders' Club Not until this year were cheer leaders organized into a major organization. After many tryouts, ten students were picked for the club. Mr. Ridgeway coached during the year and helped in the selection of new cheers and songs. The constitution compelled every member to be at all meetings, which were held Friday afternoonsg and to be at all football games. A representative group was present at all basketball and baseball games. Anyone failing in a major subject was ineligible until the mark became satisfactory. Absence from a meeting resulted in ineligibility for cheering at the following game. If one were absent three times in succession, she was dropped from the squad. By reason of conduct in school or at a game, the sponsor could remove one permanently from the squad. The uniforms and megs will be turned over to the cheer leaders of next year. Small megs will be worn by members as a club emblem. The organization did much to improve the school spirit. Here's a big RAH for the cheer leaders of 1930-1931. , 80 ,THE 1931 SPHINX The Nature Club The Nature Club feels that it can be justly proud of the progress it has made this year. Numerous trips have been taken, which increased the geographical, as well as the botanical knowledge of the members of the organization. Among the places visited are the Botanical Gardens of Brooklyn, the Museum of Brooklyn, the Bronx Zoological Gardens, and Warinanco Park. - Members ,also have studied bulbs, rock formations, trees, gardens, and crystals in their own surroundings. The club is already thinking of plans for next year. The officers are: Marie Masonias, President, Grace O'Neil, Vice President, Eileen Wilmot, Secretary, and Wilhelmina Straatsma, Treasurer. Miss Browne is the Adviser. 81 THE 1931 SPHINX The junior Debate Club f As a preparation for the Varsity Debate Team, a junior Debate Club was formed this year under the direction of Mr. Stearns. No outside debates were held but there were many informal debates among the members of the club. The officers of the club are: Clarice Scott, Presidentg and Ruth Carter, Secretary. The Hiking Clubs Senior The Senior Girls' Hiking Club, with Miss Neiley and Mrs. Rathbone at its head, has gone on several hikes this school year. During the winter, it became a basketball organization. It has proved interesting to all the girls of the organization. Junior The junior Girls' Hiking Club, with Mrs. Davies and Miss Jones at its head, was a rather successful organization. During the fall of the year, students went on many interesting and instructive hikes, but the disagreeable winter weather halted the activity. The Science Club y The Science Club of our school is a seventh grade organization, with Mr. Tarlowe as its adviser. The officers are: Eleanor Relle, President, Ruth Rubilla, Vice President, and Olga Kohn, Secretary. The club has performed several experiments in its line of work, and has seen several ,slides illustrating the subjects it could not otherwise experience. In connection with their experiments, the members have dissected many different types of animal life. 82 1 . ZMQWAHHMHQS D l THE 1931 SPHINX Football . This year the football team greatly improved their record over that of last year. It tied three county teams, which helped the record greatly. The team for next year .will consist of: backfleld-Garthwaite for the quarterback positiong Woody will be on hand for halfbackg also Erickson will be in the back. On the line-we have Leibowitz left for centerg Aaron at guardg with Disend and Sundberg for tacklesg and at end- Ashby and Mallet. For next year we have six letter men who ought to play well with three reserve men who, during their practice and games, showed some real talent. 84 THE 1931 SPHINX Roselle Roselle Roselle Roselle Roselle Roselle Roselle Roselle Roselle Scotch Plains Woodbridge Metuchen ..

THE 1931 SPHINX Boys' Interclass Athletics - Two boys' volley ball leagues were formed this year for the first time. The Senior league was composed of two teams from each of the three upper grades, while the Junior league was composed of teams from the three lower grades. In each league the two teams from each class played each otherfirst, the team winning five out of nine games continuing in the league, and the other being eliminated. Then the three remaining teams in each league played to decide the league winners. The Senior League championship was won by a Senior team captained by Charles Lawrence. The junior League championship was won by the Freshman team captained by Harvey Woody. These two teams played each other for the school championship. This was won by the Seniors, who then played the faculty, and lost by a score of 2 to 1. This game ended the volley ball season. Volley ball was soon supplanted by basketball, in which there were also two leagues. One consisted of two teams from each of the four upper classes, and the other was formed from four teams, each from the seventh and eighth grades. A double round robin was played, that is, each team in each league played every other team in that league twice. The standings at the end were as follows: 87 THE 1931 SPHINX Senior League Standings TEAM WON Losr PER CENT Senior Cubs ...... ..... 1 0 4 714 Freshman Reds . . . ..... 10 4 714 Sophomore Cards . . . ..... 10 4 714 Senior Giants .... 8 5 615 junior Pirates . . . . . 8 6 571 Junior Dodgers ..... . . . 6 7 417 Sophomore Braves . . . . . . 3 11 214 Freshman Phillies . . . ........... ..... 0 15 O00 The Cubs, Reds, and Cards then played off for the school championship.

The Cards won 24 to 22, giving them the school championship Charles Sajczuk, the captain of the Cards, and his men will receive four-inch letters in token of their victory. H 88 THE 1931 SPHINX n Physical Ability Tests During the winter the coach ran a series of physical ability tests in the boys' gym classes. The results were followed with great interest by the school as a whole. There was a total of eight events, with a possible score of 1,000 in each. The winners of first, second and third places in each event are given below and also the first twenty-five winners in the school.

The council has framed a constitution for the G. A. A., and a schedule wherebya girl may earn her "R" by acquiring a certain number of points for playing on class teams. There are five major sports in which girls may participate: soccer, baseball, basketball, track, and tennis. At the end of the year there will be awarded to each of the two most sportsmanlike, and most-deserving-of-merit girls of the Senior Class, a sweater'with an ,interwoven These sweaters are the highest award any girl can acquirey , The G. A. A. has done much in promoting good sportsmanship, and in enlivening the sporting interest among the girls. The oihcers of the organization are: V RUTH ELWELL . ........ ........

F aczzlty Adviser A 91 THE 1931 SPHINX Girls' Athletics Soccer The second year of soccer, while perhaps not quite so successful as the first, was, nevertheless, of much interest to those participating. As nearly all of the girls had played the preceding year, the biggest task on the part of both coaches and players was to develop team technique. Competition was keen and strong until winter weather caused the field to be sometimes soft and muddy to such a degree that games had to be postponed. This had a tendency to lessen the spirit for the games, and as a conse- quence, some of the games have not yet been played. However, spring will find us back in form, eager to win the victories for our teams. The Seniors are in charge of Miss Dickerson, the Juniors, Miss Demeter, and the Sophomores and Freshmen, Miss Bremner. A At the present time indications point to a repetition of last year's keen rivalry when the championship was won by a 1-0 score. May the best team win! Basketball Last year there was a bit of discontent because of the abolishing of the girls' varsity basketball. As the season progressed, however, the girls discovered that the inter-class games were just as exciting as the varsity games, and that more girls were enjoying them than would have under the old system. This season found the girls on tip toe ready to go. As the games have all been played indoors, the weather man could not halt the activities of any day, and so games were played as scheduled. After a few practices, at the beginning of the season, the regular teams were selected. Mrs. Rathbone and Miss Gleim had charge of the Juniors and Seniors, Miss Demeter, the Sophomores, Miss Bremner, the Freshman and the Eighth Gradeg and Miss Platt, the Seventh Grade. . I The games have been going along well, and thus far, the Juniors and Seniors are holding tie place for championship. May the Seniors follow in the footsteps of last year's seniors and win the championship! . just as an afterthought, wouldn't it be tragic if the Sophomores should prove to be dark horses and snatch the honors from us? 92 ' Wummmr s I I I i 1 N - N f0!AZ,f0!,, f,-xv A 1 Rf. 2 ' IH"G THE 1931 SPHINX ma F933 The FIRST NATIUNAL BANK Of ROSELLE, N.
