BIOGRAPHY CF CLASS OF 1936
Four years of VOTk1HQ together on every hlgh school act1v1ty, four
years of sharing the same pleasures and hard work, and four years of
striving all for the same alm, the good of Ardsley Hlgh School, has woven
thls year's Senior Class lnto a frlendshlp and 1nt1macy whlch they will
Upon entering the hlgh school 1n 1953, the class of '36 found them
selves caught 1H a Wh1TlV1Dd of act1v1ty and work, a vorld dlfferent from
any other they had ever known, whlch after the newness had worn off,
they managed to f1t 1nto, and make themselves perfectly at hcmeln
The Freshman year Qu1Ckly passed wlthout a great deal of actlvlty,
ln our strlde, and before the end of the year, we lntroduced a new
feature, NThe Omnibus,H a printed magazine As a Cl1m8X to a successful
year, the Sophomore glrls showed thelr 8thlGt1C abillty by capturlng the
Inter class Basketball Banner, which they kept throughout the Junior and
Senlor years, the class making a double conquest 1n the last year, as
the boys also came out on top
The JUHIOT year, one of our most prosperous, included ln the way of
events the usual cake sales and movles the Junior musical comedy, The
Rainbow of the Rio Grande, the sale of felt 'Ardsleyn penants, an a
unique amateur show, with a dance following In this year the class of
'36 undertook a new prciect, the publication of the 'Ardsleyan, Wh1Ch
required much initiative and t ct However, our work was rewarded, when,
besides a tidy proflt, pralses for our endeavor began pouring in
The annual SUbSCT1DtiOU campaign, thls year one of the most success
ful, opened the Senlor year with a fine start Another high spot in the
year occurred when the eve of L1ncoln's birthday found the Senior Prom
under way with a blaze of light and melody of music With the coming of
harch, the Seniors began to get serlously to vork on the annual Senior
play, this year a mlrthful farce, The Adventures of Grandpa,n which we
are sure you enjoyed lmmensely After the event of the play, the Senlors
Joyously turn thelr mlnds toward plans for the Vashlngton trip, looked
forward to s1nce we were small grade puplls
When the day of graduatlon davns, it w1ll find the class of 1936
looking expectantly into the future but not forgetting the happy days
they have left behlnd 1n Ardsley High School

Our special aim th1s year was to work earnestly towards the success
of our trip to Vashington We presented early 1n November the NJunior
Revue, probably the most complete production of various features ever
held in the school, after which there was dancing After our special
budget committee had been established, we held a cake sale which fell
below our expectatlons
Our scholarship and attendance thus far have been quite tolerable
We are also proud that we are represented well in every student and
social organization here, the Juniors are good live wires'
Of course, by looking at this ARDSLEYAN, you cannot doubt but that
we were the class who published it In the back section may be found
a complete explanation about this book, which we hope is a credit

Ever dreaming of the Wwashington Trip,N we settled down to the
business of ralsing the necessary funds. Our first venture of the year
was a cake sale. Th1s was such a splendld f1nancial success that the
class was prompted to still further our 1nterest with the presentation
of a moving picture program. Needless to say, this is also among
our remunerat1ve successes.
We hope that the spirit of COOpSTHt1OH wh1ch has prevailed among our
classmates ln the past will continue throughout the future.

Two interesting picture studies were given at our parents' meeting
One was NThe Song of the Lark', the other was The Angelus W As a whole
our Parents' Day Meeting was considered to be very lnterestlng.
Another subject has been added to our list and with this we hope
to improve our diets. This add1tional class is the study of foods, which,
under the able directlon of Mr. Horend, we thoroughly enjoyed.
In drawing a new interest has arisen especially since we made
unusually pleas1ng and attractive gifts for Christmas by twisting crepe
paper and binding it around jars.
Keeping in mlnd the most important a1m, scholarship, many of our
classmates have been permitted to join the regents geography class.
we have met wlth great success in attendance also. Seventy-five
per cent of our class have rece1ved punctuality buttons for having
records of five perfect years without tardlness. Thomas Geraghty

Lctlvities of the Prlmary Class
Boats, tralns, aeroplanes, cars, and trucks were among the flTSt
things we learned about and made. As a result we gave for our Christmas
show, 'The Llttle Engine That Could.n We made clay pin trays for our
mothers' Christmas presents and napkln TlHgS for Daddy.
Some of us went to a Puppet Show and wanted to do somethlng llke
that ourselves, so we made a mlnlature mOV1Hg picture of nLltt1G Black
Sambo.u Each one of us made DICYHTSS of different scenes 1n the story.
We pasted these on a long str1p of paper, which we rollec on two rollers
flxed ln a box. The boys painted the 'box mOVl6n apparatus, and the

A Year Aith The Student Council
On October 24, 1955, the followlng offlcers were elected by the
Student Councll to explore the unknown paths ahead President, Edgar
Perretz Vice Dresiaent, Laura Brown, Secretary, Helen Norse, and
Treasurer, Albert Vunck Mr Charles W Horend was selected as adviser
Davld Geraghty was chosen to succeed the present Treasurer and to act as
an under study durlng the vear 194K 36 Standlng committees included
Assembly Commlttee, Helen Iorse, Albert Vunck, and Laura Brown Insurance
Fund Commlttee, Edgar Perretz and Alfred Crisi
To pave the way for a common desire for extra class objective work
and creatlve enterprise, the President early in November outlined a plan
to the Councll whereby a system of clubs would be established fthe number
and k1nd to be optional! under a specially created council to include all
members of the Student Councll, together with a Chairman and Secretary
elected quarterly from each club The plan called for the rotation of
officers throughout the year in order that all enterprlsing students
mlght have the opportunlty to part1c1pate in extra class work, to create
a better spirlt of cooperatlon among them, to afford them opportunities
to pursue Obj8Ct1V6 work 1n chosen llnes, and to integrate these efforts
into one common purpose Then, after a consensus of opinion had been
secured as to the deslrability of the system and the establlshment of
indlvidual clubs Dramatic, Outdoor Athletlc, Social, Rlding, Current
Events, Knltting, and Shop Cfor Q1TlS clubs came lnto exlstence
As to the progress of these clubs, two or three are preeminently
successful, whereas two or three others have lagged bSblHd from all
manifest 1nd1cat1ons, however, the length of thelr duration will better
indlcate just how successful they shall have proven Several socials
durlng the year arranged by the Inter Club Counc1l Cconslsting of the
several clubsl were enthusiastlcally received by the student body The
in1t1al attempt was lauded by both faculty and students for its
repleteness, slnce lt evinced the alm of the Councll to present
everything posslble in the way of entertalnment and food at a very
mlnlmhm cost to the indivldual student It was an afternoon, early
evenlng affair, featuring a Pathetlc Iews, some tableaux and
pantomlme skit by the Dramatic Club, danclng to the music of the local
Club Ashford Orchestra, and a delectable dlnner served on the balcony
of the gymnaslum to nearly a hundred club members by a commlttee of 21TlS
from the Inter Club Councll
The Student Councll nas and shall endeavor to malntaln the Accldent
Fund wlth the 1dea of compensating those who sustaln ingurles ln the
school and who ln all other respects are eligible for protectlon, as
long as lt 1S at all feaslble to perpetuate the fund The Councll
contemplates some adaptable program for later in the semester to lncrease
Throughout the year actlon was taken on d1SC1Dlln8ry measures, plans
for betterment ln school curricula, but lt appears that ll a Student
Councll were to ece1ve more Student reactlon and cooperatlon
its undertaklngs that ltS task would be more readily and effectlvely
Therefore, lt wlll be the task of next year's Councll to take up the
loose ends and take off the Jagged edges may our best wlshes be wlth

When this club was flrst formed, we had 17 members, now we have
about lu members To start, we took a tr1p to Mr Silliman's cabin in
the Flshkill Fountains The trip was to last only Saturday and Sunday,
but because of a heavy snowfall Saturday night and Sunday, we were
snowed 1U and unable to use the cars The plowed state highway was
about five miles away Instead of returning home Sunday we arrived in
Ardsley at 3 15 on Tuesday Other trips have been made to the cabln
slnce then, and these were more successful Now the members of the club
are obtaining some good advlce and practice in outdoor camping from lr

Ardsley this year has had its most successful season of Scouting i
the records Uarly in March the troop got off to a good start by winning
the lnspection flag from the rest of the troops in the Hendrick Hudson
Councll In April, the Annual Scout Circus was held in the WGym' with
much success The camp season saw an increased enrollment of sos of
Ardsley Scouts attendlng camp at Wiccoppee Several new members from the
Cubs took places in the troop In an lnter patrol advancement contest,
the Explorers nosed out the Flying nagles who were a little ahead of the
Ravens lThe Explorers are a group of advanced Scouts J
We are sorry to lose Mr Thomas, our Scoutmaster, who has been
called to continue his work 1D a wider field as District Commissioner
Mr Mack was elected as Scoutmaster by the Troop Com ittee to fill the
vacancy mr Mack served in the Navy for several years, has taken courses
in first a1d, and is well equipped ln all ways to fill this position of
respons1b1lity we welcome h1s leadership, and are sure that the Scout
work wlll continue to progress under h1s guidance
The Cubs helped the Scouts 1n their projects this year besides
carrying out some of the1r own They took active parts 1n the Circus as
clowns, tumblers, and what not In the fall they sold stickers dlsplay
ing the Scout emblem Nr Duke, an able and willing assistant to the
Cubs, helped the boys to make lnterestlng and useful progects in shop,
such as door stops and novel candle holders made of tin cans

THE NEW INDUSTRIAL ARTS COURSE
When are we going to be able to take shopo Why can't we
oftenero Those are two questions that the shop teacher has had
over and over this year They are asked by those boys whose
not yet permlt them to take shop and by those who have only
perlod a week
Thls IS a good example of the deslre most boys have to
tools and to rake thlngs with thelr own hands How unfortunate lt is
that time and eoulpnent do not permit all tre boys of the grade school
the benef1t of this tralnlng
Ardsley Hlgh School has expanded 1ts lndustrial arts this year by
enlarglng the shop and equipplng lt with many new tools and machlnes
fine l1ne of bench power tools makes possible a study of many lnterest
lng types of work such as cablnet maklng and wood turning In addition
to wood working the classes study electricity, art metal, wrought iron,
and leather work Beautiful projects have been made by the boys in all
these types of work heaving, photography, and model maklng are taught
as added attractlons
It might be well to point out that the shop course does not aim to
teach a trade or develop expert craftsmen Its chief alm is to
pupil find out where his lnterests l1e It brlefly brings the
contact wlth as many 1HdUStT1SS as poss1ble to broaden his
knowledge Often the shop work 1ntroduces a boy to a hobby in
vlll later spend many happy leisure hours
Those successfully completlng the high school course w1ll receive
regents credlt in what is known as Industrial Arts I
So as you see, those boys who must now content themselves by
watching thelr older brothers through the shop WIHGOWS, will in time
also be receivlng the benefits of the shop We feel sure that shop
work has now become a permanent part of Ardsley'S curriculum and that
each year w1ll see more improvements and additions to the equipment

Although the team did not win the league championship this year, it
was successful from the standpoint of spirit and cooperation The team
started 1ts league season by an overwhelming defeat of Hendrick Hudson,
led by the speed of Doug Brown and Larry Agnano A week later, an
invincible zone defense lost by a margin of two points in one of the
hardest games Ardsley played thls season However, the team's spirit was
not broken, undefeated Irvington fell, 29 25 Sad losses to Greenburgh
and Dobbs Ferry followed respectively, and the team wound up its first
half in a bad way
The second half, Ardsley won four successive games Under Vincent
Agnano's bombardment of field goals, Elmsford fell 26 22 Hendrick
Hudson and Irvington were the next victlms Greenburgh T6V1S1t8d Ardsley

onslaught of fouls The team could not be stopped by nasty play and came

We feel that with Doug Brown's one hand tosses, Vince Agnano's long
shots, Richard McCartney's lay ups, Larry Agnano's left corner shots,
J1m Benn1e's timely points and Frank Pascone's last minute fight, we had
a great team. Although the boys were not champs, they had the spirit
which is necessary for a good team.

Starting in November, inter squad basketball began after school
hours. All girls interested in playing basketball were asslgned to a
team. Fundamentals were taught during Ngymu periods and during these
practices after school until February, when two honor teams were chosen,
a flrst and a second team. These teams represented Ardsley ln playing
teams from neighboring schools.
The girls' basketball fortune hit a new hlgh this year when the
first team went through the season undefeated, scorlng lo? polnts to the
opponents' 41. Leadership, cooperatlon, and excellent playlng abllity
were responsible for th1s record. The second honor team won three games
and lost one for the 1956 season.

HOW WE DID IT
In publishing this yearbook, first a board of editors had to be
elected to assume the major burdens of the task. The board, as shown at
the beginning of the book, was selected by the teachers, who acted as
advisers. The literary editors secured, arranged, and proof read all the
writing with much tearing of hair, yes this, and no'that. The art staff,
spilling half of the school's India ink supply ito say nothing of all the
ruined shirts and dresses mothers scolded aboutl, struggled with the
cover, division pages, borders, and cartoons The advertising committee,
after having walked through rain, heat, cold, snow Cwhich was so rare in
these partsl, and even Whostilen Dobbs Ferry, obtained many advertise
ments, which determine the financial success or failure of the
publication I shall pass over the fact that the business and
circulation departments, which 'burnt much wood' figurirg our great
amount of money, handled the distribution and selling of the book very
The magor part of the book was planographed, a process which
enabled us to produce such a fine publication After all material
literary work, art drawings, photographs, and advertisements were
obtained, typing was started M VarDusen actually had a sore arm from
constantly emptying baskets full of bad copies' And those grade
children to spell some of their names vas vorse than to spell some of
ndgar Perretz's pet words' Finally ve perfected the typing, figured
reductions on the pictures, and then we numbered each photograph
indicating the correct page
Do you know that each copy of the 1936 Ardsleyan cost us exactly
pl O5 The difference between cost and selling price of 407 had to be
produced by advertisements Therefore, after we have grown gray hairs,
after we have been forced by this vork to give up home work Qmuch to our
regret! we hope this yearbook will be a credit to the community, the
school, and the Juniors Next year we hope that you will continue to
support the annual, which will be prepared bv our successors
