We re gret that up to date our merchandise has not been a vailable to the public But, before the year is out we may have made or collected something worth selling to our mothers QPerhaps the pot holders some of us started'J But we cannot guarantee this because our teacher says we must learn so many things before we can be licensed to sell to the public We must learn to add make change, be courteous to customers, as well as to have something worth selling Anyway, we are having lots of fun playing store by ourselves If our Puppet Show which we are working on now is successful, we expect to give a performance at a Pri mary Assembly some Friday We are also making a 'Health Parade' poster I our parade march,tooth brushes and paste, milk, vege tables and fruit and, of course, Mr Sun are in evi dence We made blotters and calendars for our parents Christmas gifts While we were reading about pets, we told stories of our own pets Carol Reid made up this Jingle My little Bunny Rabbit, so soft and white Likes to go across the street at night, Hoppety, hoppety, hop' 38 58 I O . - O . o x O .

CPC 7 Enrollment in Scouts has increased from eighteen to twenty six Two of this number have come from the cub ranks Last year we had a 'Scout Circus' in which each Scout and cub participated At an award night in June Wallace Perrin won a week at Scout Camp given by the American Legion Post 458 for the best progress in the troop Wolf Patrol won the inspection award We had a Father and Son dinner in February at which over one hundred attended which was a pleasant success by virtue of excellent assistance on the part of the mothers The Scouts and cubs enjoy swimming at the Grass land Pool each Monday afternoon They owe a great deal to Arthur Mc Cartney for transportation and in structlon The Ardsley cubs are a new Junior branch of the Boy Scouts organized for boys under scout age with a program entirely under their own leadership We are very proud of this new group An older unit of First Class Scouts was formed this year called an 'Explorer Group ' The Ardsley trict at Dobbs Ferry in January and the Color guard won second place at inspection in Irvington 1935 BASKETBALL TEAM Standin Manager William Torrey, Vincent Agnano, Illen iccartney, Patsey Furilla, Coach Horend Sitting Victor Gagliardi, James Bennie, Captain awrence Agnanc, Douglas Brown, John Grandolfi 48 Scouts won the inspection award for the Fourth dis- SCANNING THE ARDSLEY HIGH BASKWTEERS When the final whistle blew at our last game, trotted to the showers with another victory on our re cords for what might be termed a comparatively success ful season in spite of the fact that we failed to at tain the championship We believe we might have made a better bid for the championship had it not been for the temperament of the team as a unit The team was very uncertain as Mr Horend lamented, playing some games like Wchamx then floundering around in others like 'chumps' and destroying their smooth machine like precision for som inexplicable reason Despite all, we gladly concede that the term 'champsn rather than 'chumns' lS far more applicable to our basketeers of l93b The interest displayed by the boys had mounted since we had carried a squad of eighteen consisting of the first and second teams and an addltional reserve the game from the 'ground floor' and in improving thek' playing ability We conslder that thls shows an in creasing interest contrary to comments heard about the building that basketball was becoming a thing of the past in the hearts of Ardsley rooters. To our coach, who has labored indefatigably this season and during many orevlous seasons, we owe a debt of gratitude, and it is with crofound acoreciation him that we w1sh him the best of good fortune w1th his reserve forces which will in the future constitute his most likely materlal 44141434 BASEBALL xxwmxxxx The twittering of birds and the other agreeable signs of Spring ushered in this l935 baseball season quite auspiciously Baseball candidates, numbering aproximately twenty five, began to limber up to compete for the nine positions on the varsity Team Two weeks of indoor practice was followed immediately by plenty of field work at Woodlands where both varsity and Jun lor varsity squads participated We all have hopes that they will carry through for another championship, which will be the third one in the last four years As a reward, they usually spend a day in the City followed on the next day by an evening assembly where a prominent player from one of the league teams awards gold baseballs to the worthy individual players 49 we . . , . 1 which included boys who were interested in learning L g ,L to The prospects look good for this year's team, we hope you will read next year, 'Ardsley triumphs for the third time by an overwhelming lead This, of course, will be brought about by the best cooperation of the players with their most able coach, Ken Brown Good luck fellows' Allen Mo Cartney GIRLS' ATHLETICS HOCKEY The first sport taken up by the girls in the fall is hockey No school team has been formed as yen but this offers a fall activity for the girls BASKETBALL With the stopping of girls activities in the Greenburgh League in 1932, varsity basketball has no longer existed for the girls in school and in its place, honor teams have been formed The idea was first, to stop inter school competition for a cup, and, second, to give more of the girls part in this sport The idea now a chance to play basketball on an then pick the best to be known as honor teams to play other schools a chance to take is to give all girls inter squad team and the first and second These games with other schools are known as invitation games which are played in the afternoon followed by a refreshment hour INTERCLASS BASKETBALL For the past three years during class team banner has in 1934 b by the Jun playing for an inter class banner This been won first, in 1933 by the Senior Class y Sophomore A, and for the present year, 1935 ior girls BASEBALL Each spring, the girls as well as the boys participate in the sport of baseball Last year, the girls organized a baseball team and played Dobbs Ferry whom they defeated This year, if possible, thegirls hope to organize inter class baseball teams along the same line as inter class basketball VOLLEY BALL Volley Ball is another sport in which the girls eagerly participate Each year, a volley ball team is formed which is organized as a girls activity in playing other schools PLAY DAY To close the athletic season for the girls a day is set aside each spring known as 'Play Day' which a neighboring school entertains the girls from other schools On this day the girls all get together, forget their cares and worries, and participate in the play day activities which consist of baseball, volley ball, punch ball and tennaquoits After rounding out their athletic season, the girls who have participated in these activities can truthfully say they have had a full and enjoyable year of sports Cecelia Paolucoi 50 so .rv the winter months, each class has organized an inter- "" D in A TRIBUTE TO MOTHER Ardsley High school has long been known for its splendid attendance record, likewise for its fine scholastic standing It can be justly proud of its pupils for their remarkable successes in these and other fields of activity However, everyone knows thm: it requires co operation to make anything a success But no mention is made of the second person who is be hind these achievements when the attendance certifi cates and scholastic commendations are handed out each June Who is that forgotten personage? First, let us investigate the story behind the attendance records Who gets up about an hour and a half before it is time to go to school? Who stands at the bottom of the stairs and pleasantly calls up, 'Johnny, its almost eight o'clock, time to get up? You don't want to be late for school, do you?' In re turn for this kind and thoughtful service, she re ceives a barrage of grumbling and questions as to the location of various articles of clothing Yet, on that and on every other morning Johnny Jones is seat ed at his desk at school on time, and a perfect at tendance slip is sent to the princ1pal's office for lives far from the school, he has been provided with a lunch If, however, he goes home for his lunch, he arrives there and finds that someone has gotten it ready for him He is thus able to get back to school in time to keep spotless his punctuality record And now it is time for the monthly report card to go home Who is it who gives Johnny a pat on the back and an extra piece of pie for his good work? Who is it, if the marks are not so high, who gives a word of encouragement to the disappointed lad and a new inspi ration to try to do better next month? Thus, unknow ingly, perhaps, does the individual who sits in some obscure seat on commencement day, anxiously awaiting news of her son's work, affect the record of the whole school by her unselfish services Since I have endeavored to indicate the motivat ing influence for the maintenance of stainless re cords, it is certainly obvious that only one person occupies that position Certainly it can be no one except, Mother Mother is the inspiring element that influences the pupils of our school, and leads them on to greater successes So, hats off! fellow stu dents, to the mothers of this community who as I have endeavored to show you, are not only mothers of their homes, but also mothers of the school All that I am, or ever hope to be, I owe to my darling Mother Lincoln R Earle Beleher 51 that session.
