MANAGERS Dr. Alpern To Dr. Hymen Alpern, our beloved Principal, we owe fhe peculiar delighffulness of our school. Scholarly, foleranf, kindly, and appreci- afive, Dr. Alpern is a person whom we respecf and love. He was educafed bofh locally and abroad, winning a diploma in fhe Cenfro de Esfudios in Madrid, and degrees of A.B. af Cify College, A.M. af Columbia, and Ph.D. af New York Universify. He became a feacher in I9I7 and head of fhe Modern Language Deparfmenf in DeWiH Clinfon High School in l928. He came fo Evander as ifs Principal in I934. Thaf was Evander's greaf luck. Having, in his earlier days, prepared fo follow his fafher's example as preacher, Dr. Alpern furned fo a more secular fype of feach- ing when he fell' fhaf if offered a chance of reaching more people. He has been acfive in religious fields, having been associafed wifh fhe Zion Youfh Commiffee, fhe Na- fional Conference of Chrisfians and Jews, fhe Founfain of Cafholics for Human Brofher- hood, and fhe Williamsbridge Chrisfian Communify Cenfer. He pracfices folerance. He is fhe accomplished aufhor of several books and a hosf of arficles: he won fhe Firsf La Prensa Prize for fhe besl' book of fhe year in l926, and fhe besf arficle of fhe year in l927. His books include "Educafion of fhe Superior Sfudenf" l935, and "Comedias del Siglo de Oro" I939. A few of his many arficles are "Personalify Problems in High School Adminisfra+ion," "Liferary and Cul- fural Values." "Guillen de Cas'lro," and "Training for a World We Wanl' fo Live ln." Also he has wriffen fhe Foreign Language Conference reporfs since l940. He edifed "La Tragedia por los Celos." and served as advisory edifor of "Secondary Educafion," fhe lal"l'er since I943. ln l944-45 he was edifor of "El Eco." ln every way, he's fops. 9 Mrs. Egan "A perfecf woman, nobly planned To warn, fo comforf, and command"-fha'I"s Mrs. Egan of course, Evander's charming Dean of Girls. Small, blonde, well-dressed, dainfy, Mrs. Egan combines feminine charm wifh infellecfual and adminisfrafive abilify. She is soff-spoken, friendly, and firm, and wifh all her sympafhy and undersfanding quife im- possible fo be bluffedl She has a flair for guidance. Her chief inferesf, she says, is her husband, who also is in personnel work. She feels fhaf a woman can combine home and professional life if she has fhe abilify fo plan. Mrs. Egan loves music and reading. When she graduafed from fhe College of New Rochelle she planned fo fake up journalism, buf she was offered a iob as subsfifufe feach- er, and found fhaf she enjoyed 'leaching foo much fo change. She was Guidance Counsel- or and college adviser before she became Dean. Her greafesf safisfacfion is in helping people succeed. Dr. Brophy Dr. Brophy, Dean of Boys, may be fhe bane of fhe exisfence of some few unusual boys, buf he is respecfed and admired by all who work wifh him, especially in his popular public speaking classes. He has degrees from Cify College, Columbia and Fordham Universifies. He facefiously claims fhaf he fook up feach- ing and pursued his sfudies fhrough his doc- forafe iusl' 'lo spife a feacher who underrafed him. The mosl' oufsfanding fhing in his career he believes is fhe friendship he has found everywhere. His oufside inferesfs are bridge and music. Whaf frembling culprif would be- lieve fhaf Dr. Brophy is bofh a singer and an organisf? He composes, foo, we undersfand. Surely a man of such versafilify musf be very inferesfing fo himself as well as fo his family and friends. When asked his opinion on Evan- der sfudenfs, he replied, "No commenf: l don"l' wanf fo incriminafe myself." Buf we have a sneaking suspicion fhaf he likes us.

OUR NATIONAL DEFENSE To be defended againsf possible enemy affack from fhe oufside and Fiffh Column acfion from wifhin, Evander's armed forces sfand ready for police acfion. Our armed services are represenfed by: l. The army, ofherwise known as fhe Marshal Squad, wifh Dr. Leon Hervey as Commander-in-Chief. The army is consfanfly on guard. Marshals are posfed af fhe end of each corridor. Their dufies are fo ward off invaders from Columbus or ofher foreign regions, fo sfop all passersby who cannof display a wooden pass, and fo fake charge of any sifuafion which mighf be classi- fied as illegal. Marshals are chosen for fheir good looks and high cifizenship marks. They don'f always succeed, buf fhey fry. Or do fhey? 2. The Navy. lSee Swimming Require- menfsl. 3. The Tough Marines, in ofher words, fhe Lafe Squad, a organizafion fhaf aims af annihilafing fardiness by searching, affacking and charging fardy sfuclenfs. Affer fhree far- dinesses, fhe wrong-doer is broughf before fhe Courf Marfial, Mrs. Ausfin. Here he is sen- fenced fo bring a parenf or fo fake a 602, in cifizenship affer he has been cracked by fhe fhird degree info felling fhe frufh abouf his lafeness. Such flimsy excuses as "The bus broke down," "The alarm clock didn'f go off," or "l sprained my ankle" are of course never accepfed. 4. The Secref Service, ofherwise known as fhe Deans, Dr. Brophy and Mrs. Egan, have iurisdicfion over all cases of cuf- fing, unruly behavior and ofher misdemeanors and crimes. Jusf how fhose soff-spoken deans know of all fhe guile and commandmenf-break- ing, fhe sfudenf body will never find ouf. Buf somehow fhey knowl To some, a dean's office represenfs fhe cenfer of aufhorify and good governmenf, buf fo ofhers, a place of manila folders filled wifh feachers' complainfs againsf fhe uncooperafive, of communicafion wifh parenfs, and of Office Failure in cifizen- ship. Dr. Brophy's office has fhe besf busi- ness in fown, for if is confinually filled wifh pafienfs. These unwilling pafienfs suffer from acufe cases of buf-ferflies, nervousness, quiv- ering, or obsessions, buf he cures fhem all. Evander's defense is an effecfive one, re- specfed by everyone. Does nof fhe G. O. Consfifufion guaranfee a fair frial and iusf verdicf fo all? MALVINA AUSTIN X'N
