He handled his classes with skill, firmness, and a touch of humor. Throughout the years Mr. Gannon taught us the values of being punctual and considerate of others. Our Mr. Gannon created nothing but respect and love. When we needed help, he gave it freely and warmly; when we needed prodding he gave if firmly but gently. Mr. Gannon was more than a teacher to us, he was a wonderful friend. THOMAS D GANNON. BA.

Mr. Voller was especially pleased by the performances of Dave Baranowitz, William Russo, Al Catalano and Bob Cafanio. The Varsity team had a successful season with nine wins, eight losses and one tie. This success was attributed to the fine field players, to Mr. Lang's excellent coaching, and to the professional pitching by Pat Piegari. Some of the highlights of the games were the no-hitter going for Piegari until the eighth inning in the game against Pingry which we won 2-1; and Arts' smashing victory over Irvington Tech 7-1 with the help of Arnie Nash, Ben Abruzzo, Ben Grier and Lou Venturi in the fourth inning. Incidentally, Lou Venturi, Pat Piegari, Gene Gildziler and Arnie Nash were the teams most valuable players. Arnie Nash was nominated for the All-City Baseball Team. Over all, our Junior Varsity and Varsity Baseball teams have proven their ability to play. Whether they won or lost, they always showed good sportsmanship.

However, the team had a great deal of height which helped in winning many games. Although the team had dropped below a .500 record, morale was high. Coach Voller calls his boys "faithful, conscientious, and hard playing." Junior Varsity Basketball Coach Lang was particularly pleased with the hard playing of his team during the season. Outstanding Junior Varsity players were Aurelio Catalano, Bob Catanio, Lee Kozas, Larry Caulton, Robert Fisher and Joe Towe. Other players were Ray Bristol, Ken Brown, Arthur Coles, Rich O'Amato, Sam Hardy, Will Haymon, Willie James, Ted Morrison, Mario Rebello, Joe Biondo, and Norman Jackson. “John, two hindi r bottor th»n onol" BolUrino dene . done, donc . . .
