The Student Council of ,Xrdsley lligh School is an organization consisting
of the Presidents of all classes. from the fourth grade through to the Senior L lass.
In this council we have ditiferent otticers. who for the tirst semester were as tollows:
President ---- Richard Speed s
Secretary tiertrude llrown
Treasurer Vito ltarbieri
Adviser Klr, Richter
lfx-Officio - Xlr, Silliman
In january another election for otiicers was held. and there were two changes.
Ruth llrown was elected president. and Kliss Iiuell. our adviser.
This council holds a business meeting every month. at which the activities
of the school are discussed. Anyone who has any ideas as to the bettering ot con-
ditions in or around the school may express them.
An important undertaking of the Student Council every year, is the publish-
ing of the "Ardsleyan." This requires a great amount ot' work on the part ot the
students who aid in publishing it. and we are sure every one of them, and also the
officers of the year book, deserve great credit.

As a whole. we think the Student louncil has been a great help to the school
this past year. and we hope that next year it will be even better.

THE ARDSLEY HIGH SCIIUOI. HONOR SC'5t'lli'l'Y
Since the organization of the llonor Society. in 1923. its mem-bership has
steadily increased until now there about sixty-tive members. lt was organized
with the purpose of making the .-Xrdsley School one where the pupils are vitally
interested in school activities. Some of the work which the students perform is
keeping the school grounds orderly and caring for the general welfare of the school.
The members also set higher ideals for the rest of the students.
To become a member of the Ilonor Society. a pupil must have perfect attend-
ance for at least nine months. some athletic ability. an average ot SJ per cent or
better in all school work, and he must also have done some service tor the school.
The fololwinv are the officers for the year of 1026-27:

The third annual banquet of the llonor Society was held the latter part of
December. The guests of honor were: Mr. XY. Cl. Seeley. his friend, Klr. C.
Jones. the mem-bers of the lloard of liducation. and the school faculty. Each mem-
ber of the society was allowed to invite one guest. Over one hundred people were
there to enjoy the party so successfully planned by the various committees. The
lunchroom and auditorium were effectively decorated with red and green crepe
Before the arrival of Mr. Seeley. who was unavoidably delayed. the other
guests and students sang some school songs in the old auditorium. After .Xlr.
Seeley's arrival the group went to the lunchroom where the banquet was served
by a capable committee of the Ilonor Society. .Xfter the banquet Klr. llorend
called on the various grades for their contribution of either a yell. song. or recita-
tion. Finally, Mr. Seeley was callediin for his words of wisdom. Ile made many
humorous remarks about the speakers. Then he held everybody in suspense with
his speech. "Aint" The remainder of the evening was spent in dancing and play-
As a result of the banquet there were a few bills unpaid. lt was decided
to take charge of one of the monthly movie programs. To arouse more interest
and enthusiasm a ticket-selling campaign was organized. Two teams. "The
Comet" nd 'AThe Skyrocketf' were formed. with lidmund tlicrczynski nd Tommy
Moccia as leaders. The contest was a trip to the moon. This proved, as other
contests, the fine spirit of cooperation which .Xrdsley students have.
The last social affair of the year. sponsored by the llonor Society. was the
annual picnic held in May. The Comets had thc pleasure of doing the "kitchen
police ' duty.

v The people of Ardsley saw many of the movie programs, which were excep-
tionally good thls year, being clean, sparkling, laughable, and instructive. The
programs improved greatly as new ones were given.

ganizations, therefore, made money to pay their debts.

TAYLOR AND KEYLOIR
The program of Messrs. Taylor and Keclor was given on Saturday evening,
October 23, 1926, in the Ardsley High School Auditorium.
Mr. Herbert A. Taylor was the magician, the juggler, and the ventriloquist,
and was capable of giving a full evening's program alone in any of these three
branches. He also did the comedy clown characterizations, the paper tearing, and
the rag pictures.
Mr. W. C. Keylor was the tenor soloist, and gave several seleltions, which
consisted of his imitation of musical instruments, pianologues, and included char-
acter songs n Scotch, Irish and Negro dialect.
CMr. VV. C. Keylor, a hrst-class pianist, was almost as good as Paderewskil
CM1-. Herbert A. Taylor. the regular comedian, provoked the laughter of the
evening. He performed many tricks which were a mystery to the audience?
THE AMERICAN GLEE CLUB
The American Glee Club presented the highest grade of talent we ever had
in Ardsley, on Friday, March 4, 1927, at 8:15 P. M. The program was held in the
new Ardsley High School Auditorium and was under the auspices of the Ardsley
Hgh School Orchestra.
The program consisted of vocal solos, quartets in close harmony, instru-
mental music, and musical novelties. There was a truck load of sage setting and
paraphernalia glorifying the new stage. The program was enjoyed by the audi-
ence because of its novelty.
The entertainers were said to b eone of the most popular American quartets,
and we were fortunate in securing them, The fact that the Albert VVicker's Plat-
form Service were trying to secure our business for next year alone was respon-
sible for their detour to the village of Ardsley. 'lhey were the same management
which presented the Taylor and lleylor Ll1iCl'lZ1ilIlTlCYlt, "Kings of l7unland,'l which
made such a hit here.

A. H. S. MINSTRELS
For four years the Ardsley High School Klinstrels. under the capable direction
of Mr. Reichter, has delighted and entertained a large audience in the school build-
ing: but the performance given this year. on the evening of Friday, December 10,
l926. at 8:15 o'clock, far surpassed any of the preceeding ones. The very atmos-
phere of the Southern Negroes' jolly, carefree life was brought :into the midst
of the largest audience yet assembeld in the spacious new auditorium of which we
are so proud.
There are many who deserve particular praise for their excellent work.
The end men especially should have special mention. They were Mr. Horeurl
as "Bones," -lohn Teller as "Tambo." Frank Coggins as Hljollweevilf' john
Geraghty as "Asbestos.l' Stafford Clayton as "Muresco." and Charles Zunser as
"Alabastine." Yito Barbieri deserves much credit for the manner in which he car-
ried out his part as interlocutor. Their amusing conversation, queer costumes and
funny stunts had the audience laughing from beginning to end.
Mr. Horend as "Bones" was the life of the program. He talked freely and
bumorously. sang, and played on the banjo. He was about as slippery as an eel,
and skillfully evaded the "wfife." three times his size, with the ease of a lively
rubber ball. Alex. Klussa played the wife with accuracy and spirit.
Certainly the special numbers deserve praise: Edward Aim. who gave a vio-
lin solo: Matilda liunink and Edwin Bruce. who gave an exceedingly clever ex-
hibition of Chal-leston dancing: Allan Townsend and Ellery Kamke. who gave
some musical selections: Milard Midonick. our rising young politician. who pre-
sented a campaign address: Edwin Bruce. Stafford Clayton. Ray Neary and
Chsrles Zunser. known as the Hawaiian Lfkelelc Quartet, who gave a series of
popular songs: The Broadway lfickers. Robert llarnett, blames Travis and Bernard
Young, who offered a screamingly funny parody of chorus girls: Rosalyn, Alvin
and Miles Suchin in a "Trepac" a very quaint and charming Russian dance. and
Mr. Leslie Cooley. who presented a couple of pretty Southern songs. All of
these greatly helped in "putting the show across." .
Perhaps the most important single factor in the success of the entertainment
was the chorus. composed of practically every boy in the High School. and we. on
behalf of the school. wish to thank them for theil- efforts.

THE GREENBURGH LEAGUE SPEAKING CONTEST
The Second Annual Greenburgh League Interscholastic speaking contest was
held in our new auditorium, Friday, March 25.
The doors opened at 7:45 and supporters of the various schools poured into
the sections assigned to them. Ardsley, as was expected, had the largest group
of supporters, although Irvington. Dobbs Ferry, Grecnburgh, and Hastngs were
I The Ardsley High School Orchestra showed their musical ability by render-
ing some very delightful selections. Nr. Daniels conducted them, and they were
assisted by the 'tBellemorians."
Before the opening of the contest, it was explained that in previous years
debating contests had been held. These proved unsuccessful, and the schools of
the league therefore decided to have a formal speaking contest. The first one in
1926 having proven so successful, it has now become an annual event. Each
winner received a silver cup on which his name was engraved, and this was given
to the school he represented.
The three judges were Miss Heed of Pleasantville, Mr. XVillia1ns of Harts-
dale, and Mr. Benedict of North Tarrytown.
The audience was very much surprised at the great display of talent shown by
the speakers. The winning smiles of our girl contestant, Marjorie Longmuir, won
her great applause. She delivered "Hellgate of Soissons" with a fervor that
stirred her audience. Millard Midonick gave "The Ballad of Splendid Silence"
with the talent only he can show.
However, owing to the unique selections of the winners, Ardsley had to be
content with two close second places. The winners were Dwight Holbert of
Hastings, who gave a throbbing jungle poem, which described three phases of
Congo and Helen Carlson from Greenburgh, who attracted attention by her
dramatic ability in telling one of Poe's tales.
W'hile the judges were deliberating, the "Belmo1'ians', gave a few selections
which helped to relieve the suspense. -
Ardsley High School has, perhaps, the best outlook for winning first places
next year. No doubt, the two speakers, Marjorie Longmuir and Millard Midonick
will again try for the contest. If so, they have a very good opportunity to prac-
tice in our new high school auditorium. They also 'have the beneht of being
under the excellent supervision of Miss Elinor Buell, head of the English De-
partment. The school greatly appreciated the efforts of all the pupils who tried
for this contest although they were not fortunate enough to represent us.
Ardsley will bring home the cups next year!

The team of 1926-1927 has had a very competitive and interesting season.
We had some very good material, and the boys worked hard to make this year a
successful one. We all feel that if the basketball season had lasted a little while
longer we would have had a very good chance of obtaining tirst place in the
League, for when the season ended. our team was playing at its best. ,Xs it was.
we were able to take third place in the League. The League games resulted as

Last year our track team made a good record on the cinders considering the
fact that we had little practice. "Lib" Oakes brought in a tirst place in the base-
ball throw, and Ed llruce tied for tirst place in the seventyelive yard dash for the
junior class. Several other members received rewards of second and third places.
The Juniors funder one hundred and fifteen ponndsl, both boys and girls, showed
up welll and we feel that in another year they will be bringing in their share of
points for Ardsley. lYe are greatly handicapped by having no place for running
or jumping, but we hope by another year to have a space in the park.
The baseball season of 1927 seems to be a little tnore promising last years
lVe have a group of veterans. a reliable battery, a collection of promising recruits,
and the spirit needed for victory. .Xt the time this 1XRDsi.1f:vAN goes to press. we

18 THE DEDICATION
The new -addition was started about July, 1925. In October, a collection.of
future memories was taken from each class to be put into the cornerstone, which
ws laid with simple ceremony on October 22, at 3 P. M.
The building was ready for occupancy at the beginning of the new school
term, September, 1926, but was not officially Finished until later in the Fall.
With an interesting and impressive program, this new addition was dedicated
N oyember 11, 1926. There were over six hundred people at the dedication,
which, we believe, is more than have ever been in the school at one time before.
The program was as follows:
Music-Ardsley High School Orchestra.
Welcome Song-First Grade Group.
Invocation-Rev. J. T. Van Burkalow.
The Star Spangled Banner-Sung by Audience.
Greetings-Mrs. Mary T. Goehren, President, Board of Education.
Your New School-Mr, Charles H. Cheney, Dist. Superintendent of Schools.
Solo: "The Wind's in the South"-Miss Marion Munson, Director of Music,
Dedication Address-Hon. VVilliam F. Bleakley, judge of the County Court.
Benediction-Rev. P. F. Lombardo.
Inspection of new building.
Dancing in the old auditorium---music by Uelmorians.
Ushering by the Senior Class.
The spell-bound audience listened to the addresses and music. Miss Munson
held the rapt attention of all with her singing, and graciously tendered as an en-
core. the song, "I Love You Truly."
Inspection of the building followed this. Some of the visitors then left. but
the others went into the old auditorium and enjoyed a social hour of dancing to the
music of the Bellemorian Orchestra.
The pupils appreciate the forethought of the people of the village in giving us
such a splendid building and will strive to be worthy of this great opportunity.

THE H1sToRY or ARDSLEY HIGH scnooi.
In olden times the Sawmill River was forded near an ash tree. A little set-
tlement grew up around this ford and eventually became a village known as Ash-
ford. Like all good villagers, the people of Ashford provided a school for their
children. VVe have no record of their hrst attempts in this line. Our earliest
records go as far back as 1846. The school tax list for that year is still extant
and is a most interesting document. The trustees, John Lefurgy, Charles Lister,
and Anthony Storm, wished to raise seventy-three dollars and seventy-five cents
for the maintenance of the school for a year. During the winter of 1844-45, they
spent ten dollars for wood to heat the school. Some of the other items of ex-
pense were: an axe and helve, 31.445 a stove door, 30.37, a broom, 30.21. VVe
do not know the location of this building.
The next school was situated on the land now owned by Mr. Vlfilliam Proud-
foot, and was first used sometime during the sixties. This building had two
rooms, both on the same Hoor, one of which was used as a cloak room.. The school
district at that time extended as far as Broadway, Dobbs Ferry. The first teacher
was a Mr. Rope. Then followed Mr. G. A. Buck and Mr. VVi11iam E. Slocum,
both well-known to the people of Ardsley. The land for this school was given to
the town by Mr. Stores, to be held by it only as long as it was used for a school.
VVhen the site was changed in 1880, this land accordingly reverted to the original
owner. Mr. Daniel Lawrence bought the old building and moved it down by
Campbells garage, where it was used as a livery stable.
The new school erected in 1880 was our present Municipal Building. On the
first fioor there were two rooms, separated by a glass partition. The first and
second grades met in the back, the third and fourth in the front. The other four
grades met in the two rooms on the second floor. Mr. Xllilliam Slocum was the
principal. It was three years after this that the name of the village was changed.
The people of Ashford desired a Post Office. As there was already an Ashford
in the State. it was necessary to change the name. A Mr, Cyrus W. Field prom-
ised to help them with their petition if they would change it to "Ardsley,', after
the home of his ancestors in England. The first Ardsley school grew slowly but
surely. By 1903. there were four teachers, and by 1910, live.
ln 1913, the older part of our present building was erected at a cost of
5S90,000. At this time, there were six teachers and about 125 pupils. In june,
1913. nine pupils took high school examinations. In June, 1927, ninety pupils will
take these examinations. Although high school work was carred on, we did not
receive our charter until 1918. The kindergarten was added in 1918. Our high
school department has grown so rapidly recently that in 1925 the corner-stone
fora large addition was laid, with llrs. Ruth Slocum, l"resident of the lloard of
Education. presiding. The dedication of this building was held in tlte new audi-
torium, November 11, 1926. Mrs. Mary Goehren, Prcsdent of the lloard of
lfducation. presided. In our ample quarters, we have now nineteen teachers and
a school nurse. Ardsley High School ranks high among the schools in our src-
tion of the country and is steadily bettering its positior

most successful given at Ardsley High, and we feel that this was due largely to
the united efforts and co-operation of the whole class.

liarly Saturday morning, April 16, 1927, nine members of the Senior
Class of Ardsley High School and six teachers set off for a trip to the City
of Washington, our nation's capitol. This trip had been eagerly looked forward
to from the beginning of the school term, and now tihat it was time to start, every
one was greatly excited, to say the least.
We left llolmhs lferry station at 6:-l7 A. Bl. and arrived at Grand Central
Terminal at 7:15. lfrom there we rode to jersey City in Baltimore 8: Ohio
.Xlotor Coaches arriving at 7:50. ,-Xt 8:27, we left ,Iersey City on the llaltimore
81 Ohio Railroad. XYe were now on the train hound for Nliashington. The ride
was rather tedious as New jersey and Pennsylvania were not very pleasant to
view, and we were also quite anxious to reach our destination. Finally we arrived
after tive hours of weary riding.
The "l'ortland" was the hotel at which we stayed while in lNashington. Xlie
were scheduled to go directly to this hotel, hut as our train was delayed cn route.
we were taken directly to the Old Xational Museum. This was Ulll' first View
of lVashington, and 1 will adniit, we were not greatly impressed by it: for after
our long ride on the dusty train, we were hot and tired, and we did not feel much
like looking over old relies. llut, nevertheless, we did derive something from
the museum, for it had some interesting things in it. Among them were: The
tirst airplane, Hags of all the different nation, the dresses worn hy the wives of
the Presidents during their adniini--tratons, and also the horse which Sherman
rode on his march to the sea.
lfrom the museum we went to the old lford Theatre and then to the house in
which Abraham Lincoln died. This house now contains nuinherless collections of
pictures and writings of Lincoln. We then went to our hotel where we felt
tARDS,g IQEYAN 41
greatly refreshed after . .l
L 't siort rest so that at 7 l'. Xl. we were readv to visit the
Congressional Library. This is a beautiful building, lt was completed in 1897,
and eonsists of three stories and a dome. There are nearlv 2.000 windows in it
ml t ' '
1 t 1 is considered the best lighted library in the world., Un the ground floor
are the Copyright ofhees and the reading room for the blind. The tirst tloor
contains the regular reading room. librarian's room, periodical reading room.
map room, and Senators' and Representatives' reading room. On this lloor are
exhl - ' ' ' '
tilts of engiavmgs and other eolleetions meludmg rare books. The most im-
pressive room here is the rottinda or reading room which is in the center of the
mam building. lt eert'1inlv is a wonderful room to gaze upon. To realize the
grandeur of it, you must see it yourself,
1 Easter Sunday at 8:30 .-X. Nl. we toured the City of Washington. Un this
trip we saw many of the noted buildings of the eity and also many of the statues
of .famous men. XYhile on this tour we saw the house where the l'resident now
resides as the Xkihite llouse is now being renovated. ln the afternoon we visited
the Corcoran Art fialler'
the only monastery in eastern L'nit -l S
v and fi'oin here we went to the lfraneisean Klonastery,
. tc lates. where we saw the grottos and cata-
Un Faster Monday we visited the Central Market. This was quite a large
place and was very interesting to look at. .Xll kinds of plants and flowers eould
The bought here. also fruits. vtgt-tab'es and n'any other catables.
From here we went to the New National Museum and then to the Treasury
lluilding. llere we saw several bills which were too old to be used. Some of tis
exchanged our worn bills for new ones at this time.
l.ater we went to the White illouse l.awn and saw the egg rolling. This
was something that we had looked forward to seeing sinee the beginning of otn'
trip for we had heard so mueh about it. lt really was a very pretty sight with all
the children playing about. lfaeh had a basket of colored lfaster eggs and also
many balloons which added to the beauty of the scene. AX fountain could be seen
on the lawn which added to the oeeasion as well as the children playing about.
Our next trip was to the XYasbington Xlonument. This is one of the great
features of the trip that stands out in most of our minds. lt is made of white
marble and is seen towering against the sky long before one reaches the City of
Xyashington. and its height eonfronts one at every turn. lfrom the avenues and
the parks. from the Capitol. the Xthite llouse, the heights of .Xrlington and far
down the llotomae on the way to Mt. Yernon. go where you will, an ever promi-
nent fcaiure of the landseape is the great Nlonuinent. In stormy weather it sug-
gests a mountain peak standing imn'ovable with the mists drifting hy. lt is
shaped like an obelisk and is 555 ft, 516 in, high. XYe climbed to the top of this
by means of an elevator. but we walked flown to make it more impressive. lt
surely is one wonderful pieee of masonry. being the highest in the world.
Another thing that stands out in our minds in connection with the XYashing-
ton Monument is the l.ineoln Memorial. .-Xfter waiting many years to pay a
tribute to Lincoln. the nation finally ereeted this immense building. lt is of
imposing size and exquisite beauty, Simpfe in plan and of direet appeal.
it draws many people to it. llere they come to pay tribute of reverenee to the
42 great man loved by all. The Union is expressed in the colonnade surrounding the
hall. There are thirty-sis columns, one for each State in existence at the time of
Lincoln's death, and on the walls about the colonnade are inscribed the names
of the forty-eight States which now make the Union and cherish Lincoln's fame.
In the central hall is a marble statue by Daniel Chester Chase. A figure seated in
a chair faces the entrance, looking out to the Vlfashington Monument and the
Capitol. It is Lincoln of Gettysburg whom we all adimire and love. This great
Memorial is one which we shall never forget!
On Tuesday, we vistted the Capitol and tunneled to the Senate Gffice Build-
ing. lNe also saw the House and the Supreme Court, although the latter was not
in session. VVe climbed to the dome of the Capitol' Building, and from the top
saw many interesting views of the City of Washington.
In the afternoon we went to Annapolis and saw the naval drill and academy:
also the crypt of Paul Jones An interesting feature there was the solid gold rope
which was around the tomb. No one was permitted to touch this rope in any way.
VVe were to leave VVashington the next day, but before we went we saw one
of the most beautiful places of our whole trip. This was the Arlington Cemetery.
which surpassed the beauty of any thing that we had previously seen. At the
cemetery everythng was in bloom. and the sight could not have been prettier.
Here were the graves of our world war heroes. and standing out among them was
the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. At the tomb we reverently stood for a few min-
utes realizing what this really meant to us. and to the nation. It left us with a
feeling that we shall not soon forget.
Next we went to Philadelphia, and while we were here we stayed at the
St. james Hotel. This is a beautiful building, and our only regret while there
was that we could not have stayed at it longer because we were scheduled to stay
but one night. W'e arrived in this city at 8 P. M. lfVednesday night, and the fol-
lowing days we toured the city, visiting many well known buildings. One of
these was the Curtis Publishing House, which we inspected and where we saw
some of the magazines being made. The little bit that we saw was very interest-
ing for we did not see much of the manufacturing in detail. Next we' proceeded
to the Christ Church and from this place to the grave of Benjamin Franklin.
Shortly after, we visited Independence Hall, where we saw the old Liberty Bell.
which we all had so wanted to see, and in XVanamaker's Store we heard the
famous organ. The guide whom we had on this tour of Philadelphia was very
interesting to listen to. VVhile telling us of the history of the different buildngs.
he would often put n a joke or two which added to the story a great deal. He also
stopped several times to tell us in detail the history of some more important
places. One very interesting place which had a unique history was Girard Co'lege.
All too soon we had to leave for home. VVe left Philadelphia at 8 o'clock
and arrived home at l A. M. Friday morning. Wie all had had the most wonderful
time of our High School career. and we leave school with this picture of the
beautiful City of Wiashington and the pleasant trip, that we had so enjoyed, fresh
in our memories. and we know that we shall never forget it.
