Coming from schools throughout the borough, this group was destined to augment greatly the number of gray hairs on the heads of the faculty. The outstanding char- acteristics of the class were hilarity and dislike for any social activities. After a trying year of adjustment and of becoming acquainted with ourselves and our teachers, we began to co-operate and to keep our hilarity within bounds. VVe have tried to observe this practice to the end, often with disastrous results on the sanity and good nature of our teachers. n The freshman year was marked by little of the extraordinary, as was the sopho- more year. Q With our junior year and the new building there came a slight change in us. The only parts of the old building that we missed were the Well-initialed desks and chairs of our predecessors. Nevertheless, we did not leave behind us our many friends we had made, nor did we forget our associations with the old building. Finally we emerged upon our senior semester, a small fragment of the group that had started as freshmen. Our neglect of our class activities while we were but young- sters now made us rush madly about trying to do three years' work in one. Constant demands of the members of the Pioneer staff to "Hurry up with class material" and the burning of much midnight oil have featured this period. Here we have four golden pages of our lives melted down into one. LAURA HENVITT '30. Class Will A We, the Seniors of Fort Lee High School, County of Bergen and State of New Jersey, being of sound mind, memory and understanding, do make, publish, and declare the following as our last will and testament, that is to say: First: To our obscure, reticent successors we leave our deepest sympathy and consolation, which we know they will need due to their very inferior intelligence and utter lack of brilliance and originality which the Seniors so conveniently possess. We also bequeath to the said successors the deed to and the rightful possession of Room 213. 24- 1930 THE GPIONEER 1930 ax1zIa:o.a?i:iaJ.a?'QaDa?z21D.a2-Zaadai 415942 and 615144942 zum Second: Marie Antonini leaves her skill of driving an auto to Anita Burke with the hope that Anita will not run down any more fences.

This year we are the largest Junior Class that this high school has ever had. Representatives of the Junior Class are seen in and heard from Rooms 203, 206, and 208. lVIrs. Foley, Mrs. Quinn, and lVIr. Whittemore are the advisors who are troubled to keep us in order. This year we Juniors were well represented on the field of sports. On the gridiron the Juniors had ten members on the squad. On the diamond we were rep- resented by Hve of our fellow classmen, three of whom were regulars on the team and were awarded their letters. On the court five fFallatico, Moltke, McManus, Richard, and Chapulisj played for us on the Varsity. Also four of our girls won regular positions on the Girls' Varsity. In debating, the Junior Class team, consisting of Captain Dyer, Mildred Yach, Cornelius Brodersen, and Hector Zucchino met defeat at the handsiof our elders. However, the Seniors were not quite so fortunate in their basketball encounter with the Juniors. They were repulsed in their efforts by a score of 21-24. In the Dramatic Club's first presentation, "It Pays to Advertise," a Junior, Dorothy Lakin, was a member of the cast. ln "The Goose Hangs High," five Juniors were members of the cast: Edith Svanberg, Cornelius Brodersen, Gus Moltke, Evelyn Binder, and Brandon Blades.

In October it was decided that each home-room should take a vote as to which form of government it considered best of the three forms: military, commission and legislative. The form with the greatest number of votes was to be the one adopted. As a result of the voting, the military form of government which had been in use since 1922 was replaced in 1929-30 by the commission form of government. The plan of the commission government is to elect three senior and two junior high student commissioners who work in co-ordination with two representatives from each home-room. One teacher from the junior and one from the senior high are elected by the faculty to serve as advisors on the commission. The members of the commission are: Dorothy Major, chairmang Helen Gilpin, secretaryg Gustav Moltke, treasurerg Jack Foley, and Peter Gaudiomonte. The two faculty advisors are Miss Maude Brady and Mr. Carl B. Strong. Much of our success has been due to the able services of Dorothy Major, our chair- man, and to the sound advice of our advisors, Miss Brady and Mr. Strong. The committees are being used as a link between the student body and the student council, because it is thought that if more persons are serving on committees, there will be greater interest and enthusiasm displayed by the student body in the welfare of the school. At the present time there are eleven committees in the senior high and seven in the junior high. The committees of the senior high with the faculty advisors and chairmen of their respective committees are: 42 1930 .

VVe feel this is sufficiently broad to in- terest all bock lovers and readers. It is natural that our programs provide varied contacts with books. This is evident from a brief glimpse of some of our meetings. One was devoted to an ap- preciation of modern poetry, another to reviews of books interestfng to read. A comparison of contemporary newspapers proved to be enlightening. A presentation of biographical sketches of contemporary American girls was an incentive to those inspired to do greater things. A consideration of the library periodicals served to widen and direct our current reading interests. Our Christmas program, held before the holidays, was one of great spirit and merrymakhing. One of the members read an appealing Christmas story from the Atlantic Monthly. Carol singing and refreshments concluded the festive occasion. As this goes to press numerous excursions and programs of special interest have not yet been announced, nor have the prospective members been recorded. Those serving the club in an official capacity are lvlargaret Ennis, presidentg Laura Hewitt, vice-presidentg Marion Miller, treasurerg lVIildred Yach, secretary. The programs are planned by a voluntary committee.

Membership to this club is coveted as only third year French students and the most able of the second year students may belong. The programs for the meetings are usually arranged by Miss VValler and pre- sented by the members. These programs deal with French literature, music, art, customs, puzzles, and games. At the beginning of this year the membership included Dorothy Major, Isabel Katz, Emma Di Fiore, Samuel Klein, Francis Deshusses, Hannibal Cundari, Hector Zucchino, Charles Ferrante, Nicholas Napoli, Evelyn Binder, Quentin Carrara, Florence Baedor, and Edward Doublier. In February Walter Chapulis, Robert Cher- tov, Philip Ciancio, Dorothy Muchmore, Marjorie Ortlip, and Fanny Wilson ofthe second year class were invited to join. The officers of the club this year are Hannibal Cundari, president, Dorothy Major, vice-presidentg Florence Baedor, secretaryg and Francis Deshusses, treasurer. FLORENCE A. BAEDOR '30. 45 'i Quantum Club This year, the Quantum Club was one of the most important clubs of Fort Lee High School. The membership to this club is exclusive, as only members of the junior and senior classes who take either science or mathematics are eligible. llflonthly meetings, taking place on the first Thursday of every month, were a source of instruction as well as enjoyment. An interesting program, supervised by the chairman of the program committee, was held after every business meeting. Sub-clubs of the Quantum Club have been formed this year: the Slide Rule Club, under the supervision of lVIrs. Quinn, and the Camera Club organized by Mrs. Foley. The officers this year were president, John Postelg vice-president, Cornelius Broderseng secretary, Margaret Ennis, treasurer, Gus Moltkeg chairman of program committee, Florence Baedorg chairman of social committee, Dorothy Muchmoreg chairman of property committee, Philip Ciancio. During the year, Gus Moltke and Florence Baedor resigned and were replaced by llflary Scott, treasurer, and Robert Chertov, chairman of program committee.

This plan has been adopted by Fort Lee High School, and in the future, all clubs and committees will submit in September a budget to this group. The Finance Committee, a part of this club, must pass upon all budgets. ' If money is desired by any of the extra-curricular committees the Internal Accounting Club, together with the Finance Committee, will decide whether the purpose for its expenditure is in accordance with the budget submitted and, if so, will issue the money as desired. The members meet to transact business each 'Wednesday from 12:30 to 1:00 in the Principal's oilice, where space has been provided for that purpose. Meetings are called only when necessary to talk over some phase of the work. When such meetings are called, theyl 'are held in Room 122 at 2:35 P. M. The oflicers of the club consist of bookkeeper, Charles Bowersg student treas- urer, Brandon Blades, secretary, Edith Svanbergg general treasurer, Miss Smith, car ticket manager, John Morrison. The Finance Committee is composed of Helen Gilpin, Dorothy Major, Gustave Moltke, Miss Smith, Miss Vorees.

The proposition, "Resolved: That interscholastic athletics in high school are preferable to intramural athletics," was heatedly discussed by Seniors and Juniors. The Seniors-Isabel Katz, captain, Robert Kurz, Dorothy Major, and Charles Ferrante-were victorious. The Junior team-Mildred Yach, captain, Hector Zucchino, Cornelius Brodersen, and Arthur Dyer--upheld the affirma- tive side of the argument. In the second interclass debate, the Sophomores with Katherine Krall, captain, Dean Grandin, Mary Calk'n, and Arnold Hough, defended the negative side of the question. The Freshman iteam, Jack Foley, captain, Vera Salussolia, Sidney Kahn, and Dorothy Naehrlich, -alternate, emerged victorious. The question was "Resolved: That the development of talking motion pictures will eventually eliminate the speak- ing drama from the legitimate stage." The date of the final debate between the Seniors and the Freshmen was M.arch 18. The Freshmen advanced the aiiiirmative of the question, "Resolved: That the thirteen month calendar is preferable to the twelve." In this final contest the Freshmen were proclaimed victors of the interclass debating activities of Fort Lee High School for 1930. KATHERINE KRALL '32. 48 k Hi-Y Club The Fort Lee Hi-Y Club was organized late in November under the leadership of Mr. Wardle, a county Y secretary. Hi-Y is a world wide movement which is represented in Bergen County alone by seventeen clubs. The main purpose of the Hi-Y is to a-id the school and community. In view of this purpose the local cha-pter took upon itself the task of decorating the gym for the Christmas party. No one was anxious to undertake this work, for a game scheduled for the preceding evening limited the time for preparation to one afternoon. The club also printed ca-rds for the first home basketball gameg and later each member pledged himself to sell at least five tickets for the play "The Goose Hangs High." The last job of the club was to produce "J, Caesar", a three-act takeoff on Shakespeare's play, to start a Bergen County fund which will defray the expenses of a foreign representative to the Hi-Y convention at Cleveland, Ohio. The membership includes Mr. Whittemore, faculty advisor, John Postel, presi- dent, James Carrara, vice-president, -Edward Doublier, secretaryg John Morrison, treasurerg Ralph Arnseth, George Coleman, Conrad Brieby, Cornelius Brodersen, Quentin Carrara, Philip Ciancio, Hannibal Cundari, Arthur Dyer, Augustus Falla-. tico, Joseph Howell, William Korker, Aloysius McManus, Albert Metz, Fred Oman, Francis Petrosino, Fred Rafanello, Theodore Schuman, Hector Zucchino. HECTOR ZUCCHINO '31, 49 The Steno Club The Steno Club was organized in October, 1929, under the excellent supervision of Miss Nancy- Smith, a commercial instructorQ The purpose of this club is to pro- mote greater interest in stenography and secretarial work. It is composed of sixteen members, all of whom have completed or are taking Steno ll. Business and social meetings are held alternately the first and third Wednesdays of each month. The programs usually pertain to subjects of interest in the commer- cial world. At one of the meetings the origin of the Gregg and Isaac Pitman method of shorthand was discussed. , Members. of the Steno'I class were invited to attend a Hallow'en party given by the club, at which there was much gayety. . . In the near future the Steno Club plans to present a two-act play, "Diogenes Looks for a Secretary". The officers are Edith Svanberg, president 5 Teresa Benedetti, vice-presidentg John Iasillo, treasurerg and Gertrude Lorenz, secretary. EDITH SVANBERG '31. S0 Fort Lee Philatelic Association The first Fort Lee High School Stamp Club was formed early in October 1929, with Mr. Strong as faculty advisor. The aims of the club are: QU to promote stamp collectingg Q25 to promote a worth-while hobby, C31 to have a good social time: 14, to help create a school spirit in Fort Lee High School. During the first semester the club met weekly on Thursday during the fifth period. The first real activity was a visit to a stamp exhibit in New York at which we had the chance to View many collections. We next had a. stamp exhibit of our own, for one week during which We exhibited to the school a small part of some col- lections. A certain number of our members specialize in United States stamps, in German stamps, or in air mail stamps. VVe are now planning a trip to Washington, D. C., for the purpose of visiting the Department of Engraving and Printing where stamps are made and also to see the largest collection in the world of which United States is the owner. The officers are as follows: president, Charles Sheridan 3 vice-president, Carl Ofg secretary, Samuel Haas: treasurer, Robert Scott. The regular members are: William Sheridan, Fred Walter, John Liotard, Carl Maas, Martin Neumunz, and Paul Leone. The associate members are: Mary Calkin, Paul Loeche, Virginia Wetter, Louise Roeher, and Amy Casper.

Any Junior or Senior interested in news writing was eligible to join but only eight: Juniors responded. The Junior high school was represented by an auxiliary organization which reported news of the Junior high school and turned it over to the Senior Club to be edited. After the club was organized, from one to five articles of school interest appeared in each issue of the Fort Lee Sentinel. The publishers of this weekly paper responded most encouragingly to the journalistic endeavors of the club, accepting and pub- lishing most of its material. Two members served as paid rcontributors to neigh- boring weeklies. The Work of the club was especially noteworthy in connection with the dramatic club productions, which were kept constantly before the public for a month prior to presentation. The members of the Journalism Club are Edith Svanberg, Gertrude ,Lorenz, Dorothy Carlson, Mildred Yach, Albert Metz, Cornelius Brodersen, Hector Zuc- chino, and Fred Oman. MILDRED YACH '31, 52 The C. Y. Science Club The C. Y. Club was launched in the latter part of September by a, group of boys eager to find out the whys and hows of science. This group ventured upon the sea of science with Mr. Miller, their biology instructor, as skipper. The meetings are held on Wednesday at three o'clock. The time is divided between business and experimental meetings. Among the various activities undertaken by the C. Y'ers has been the making of a balanced aquarium illustrating the exchange of various life needs between plants and animals. The C. Y'ers are also preparing for a biological exhibit in june. The C. Y. Club goes on monthly trips. Many places of interest have been visited, including the Hudson River Bridge, the National Aviation Show, and the Museum of Natural History. - In its short time of existence the C. Y. Club has made excellent progress and we are striving to make it some day the leading association in the Fort Lee High School, the pride of our Alma Mater.

We have investigated the lighting effect of the stage, and have dramatized and studied the various parts of a play. We expect to attend, in a body, some popular plays before this season ends. The Dramatic Club has taken over the responsibility of the two school plays for this year which were, "It Pays to Advertise" by Roi Cooper, lVIagrue and VValter Hackett, presented on November 22, and "The Goose Hangs High" by Lewis Beach, presented on April 25 and 26. A synopsis of the play follows: "It Pays to Advertisei' Cyrus Martin, a Wealthy soap manufacturer, cherishes a fierce determination to have his leisure-loving son, Rodney, buckle down to work. His threats and en- treaties have not the least effect until Mary Grayson appears on the scene. She is lllr. Martin's secretary and confederate in the plan to induce Rodney to go to work. She starts the ball rolling by encouraging the advances of young Rodney, and finally consents to marry him if he will tell his father of their plans first. As a result of the ensuing revelation, the irate father banishes his son from his house. Rodney takes his old friend Ambrose Peale into his confidence and together they formulate the dar- ing venture of introducing the 13 Soap "Unlucky for dirt". Through an extensive and spectacular advertising campaign, they plan to bring this soap constantly before Cyrus lVIartfn's eyes and literally force him to buy them out to safeguard his own in- terests. The only missing detail in their plan is their lack of ready money. At this crucial time Cyrus Ma.rtin, falsely believing that the company is a dangerously pros- perous concern, decides to purchase it. Hoivever, lVIary Grayson unwittingly re- S4 L N 1930 THE TIONEER 1930 4?-25942-zbbarzbvdfszbboi 4634? agua?-nauaffaaabai Qiauarf-aaa veals their true situation. A few days later he is confronted by the amazing news that a Chicago company, due to Rodney's spectacular advertising, has ordered a quarter of a million cakes of 13 Soap at sixty cents a cake and he, Cyrus lVIartin, can manufacture it at three cents a cake. But, however clever Cyrus Martin may be, Nlary Grayson is always two jumps ahead of him. The 13 Soap Company is finally sold to Cyrus Martin to every one's benefit but the purchaser's. The curtain falls with Rodney and Mary happily married and father and son reunited.

They are a dashing pair of twins in their early twenties. Their parents, Bernard and Eunice Ingals, are sacrificing nearly everything financially to keep the twins in college, but the twins are totally unaware of this. Elliott Kimberley, the typical influential politician, disagrees with Bernard In- gals who is the tax assessor, as to the capabilities of Bernard's unworthy secretary who was installed in his office because she was a friend of Kimberley's. Bernard, in a rage, orders Kimberley out of his house, and writes a letter of resignation. He confides his troubles to his wife Eunice. To his great surprise she says that it is the best thing he could have done-to free himself of the scheming politicians. However, on second thought, she remembers the twins and their college expenses. As a last re- sort they attempt to borrow money from Granny. She very emphatically refuses to relieve the financial stress, and the harassed parents beat a hasty retreat. Granny summons the three children and tells them the true state of affairs. They resolve to reward their parents for their years of sacrifice by getting jobs and supporting them. There is nothing slipshod about those twinsg they believe in doing things up right while they're about it. Accordingly they proceed to bait the aristocratic Granny SS 1930 THE TIONEER 1930 or Qimi 2475?

At last Granny agrees to go half with Noel Derby in buying a greenhouse and nursery in order to insure Bernard's having a respectable position. Thus she satisfies a life-long yearning of the Ingals. In this way this exceedingly humorous comedy ends happily for everyone concerned. The cast YVZIS I Bernard Ingalls . . Eunice Ingals . . . Noel Derby . . . Leo Day ..,. Rhoda .........

We students were interested in these assemblies because it gave us a chance to get together as a whole and also gave us opportunities for self ex- pression. Music has taken a large part in the program. The orchestra played a march as the school entered and left the auditorium. Members of the orchestra occasionally entertained the audience with solo pieces. The performances of the glee clubs have always been heartily applauded by the school. Comments on the band, on its merits, and on its future were heard all over the school weeks before and after its first appearance. We do not forget the special programs that were given before Christmas and Easter. Mr. Prall does indeed deserve cornmendation for his persistance in training these music groups. The programs themselves have been varied and interesting. Perhaps the most exciting ones were the debates. Despite our lack of class organization, our enthusiasm was shown in hearty, altho short-lived, attempts at cheering and good natured par- tisanship. There have been two plays, one an adaptation from "Silas lVIarner,' and the other an exciting one-act play entitled "Where The Cross Is Made." "Silas Marner" was well done and we were gratifiedwith the smoothness with which it was presented. "Where The Cross ls Made" held us tense until the curtain closed. Then there was the tumbling act. Only mention of it need be made and we recall the diving, tumbling, acrobatic Junior High boys doing their stunts. lfVe were particularly interested in the book talks and addresses. The addresses have been on various subjects, a talk for organizing the band, another for organizing the banking system, and still another on Bergen county. Then there was the moving picture lecture on the "Sun" and the particularly entertaining talk on Byrd's Antartic Expedition. Altogether the assembly programs constitute an important part of the school's activities.

Prall, who has been able to give all his time to the senior and junior high school, we have been very active in the music de- partment. To most of us the most unexpected achievement has been the organization of a band which incjudes fifty-four boys and girls. The band made its debut at the Parent- Teacher Association on Fathers' Night when the boys and girls entertained fathers and mothers in the gymnasium. 1 'The senior high orchestra with forty-three members meets twice a. week and surely does show the result of hard work and careful supervision. We have played for the school plays and have given, a few programs in assembly. The junior high orchestra with thirty-seven members is progressing and will furnish material for the senior high school next year. - The boys' glee club whose forty-two members show considerable interest in their -work has given a program in assembly and also one for the Parent-Teacher Associa- tion. ' The girls' glee club with ninety-five members is the largest musical group. They also entertained on Fathers' Night at the Pa-rent-Teacher Association meeting and in additionisang over radio station WBMS on March 9. The comments of praise from their unseen audience were gratifying to the girls as well as to Mr. Prall. In the junior high the boys and girls ha-ve no glee clubs, but in separate music classes they are doing two- and three-part singing. g The Easter program in assembly was given by all the musical clubs, the boys' and girls' glee clubs being combined for the first time. ISABEL KATZ '30, 58 L gw fwf- kj f' fa N f -X I.: Baseball 1928-1929 Early last spring Mr. Spence put up his first notice for baseball candidates. The call was answered whole-heartedly and for the first practice there was a crowd of eager and ambitious baseball candidates. lifir. Spence had a very interesting although very hard job because of the number of efficient players that had to be eliminated .before the final squad was organized. Finally, the best of the crop was picked and we were ready for the hard training practice. Our main object at first was to obtain an efficient pitcher who could stand the grilling of the batting teams from our neighboring schools. Several promising players applied for this job and after the tests we came out with two capable pitch- ers who were largely responsible for our successful season. The rest of the team was organized as perfectly as any team with whom we played. With a dependable second team on the bench we had little worrying. It was to our disadvantage that our school did not enter the local athletic league, for we really made baseball history for Fort Lee High. We beat the county champions twice, this fact we're sure eliminates any doubt. The boys received their letters and the season was ended with a fine finish. The team was as follows: Charles Allen, Brandon Blades, c.g Arthur Bruni, 3rd, Lawrence Bruni, r. f., Clayton Casino, p.'g Edward Collins, l. f., William Cooke, r. f.g Charles Ferrante, s. s.g Raymond Lyons, Zndg Anthony Maisano,' 1.f.g Nicholas Maisano, l. f.g Henry Modersohn, lstg Joseph Oliva, s. s.g Frank Orsino, c. f.g Ferdinand Sikosek, 1. f.g captain, Charles Ferranteg most valuable player, Ferdinand Sikosekg highest average, Lawrence Bruni. 62 The schedule was as follows: Fort Fort Fort Fort Fort Fort Fort Fort Fort Fort Fort Fort Fort Fort Fort Fort Fort Fort Fort Fort Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee ' Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Stevens Prep.

Q33 FootbaH 1929-1930 Immediately after the school session had begun in September there was call for football candidates. Again as for baseball the call was answered with enthu- siasm. VVe held our first regular, practiceon the local athletic field Where the boys had a real taste of football. Old outfits were given to the boys, the new ones not being issued until the regular squad was picked. For the first time in the history of Fort Lee High a football team of its own was to make its bow, but not until at least three weeks of very hard training had made the players ready for the tossings of the game. The first game was played on our local field. As one of the team remembers it, "VVith the sidelines swarming with people and the cheer leaders raising their voices to rally the fans' spirits, it is no wonder that we became more nervous and excited. The fellows were green, comparatively. There were the big Ramsey pluggers, who to us at that time seemed ever so great, greater than can really be accorded them. But we fought for old Alma Mater with all our hearts." It was after the first few games that the team really became hard and cruel, as one might say.

This year a commendable record has been made by the team that has worked hard for it. 'Immediately after the football season had closed practice was ca-lled. Most of last year's regulars came out for the team, therefore making signal and forma- tion practice the main objects of training. The team had a slow start but it soon pulled itself out of the hole and began to winfconsecutively in streaks. There were many interesting games witnessed by the studentssand the many outside fans that the team finally acquired.

The first one was between the Freshmen and the Sophomores. Both teams played valiantly during the whole game, but in the end the score was fateful to the Freshmen. The Sopho- mores Won by a score of 30 to 14. 5 Next the Senior and Sophomore girls were linked against the Junior and Fresh- man girls. This was the only girls' game that was played, but it made up in- excite- ment for what several games might have lacked. Although the score often tied and often in favor of the Juniors and Freshmen, the Seniors and Sophs piled up the higher score in the end. ' It was 29 to 25.' The boys lined up against the Junior boys for the third and last game of the evening. F.verybody's enthusiasm was pitched to the highest. The winner of this game would have the honor of competing with the Sophomores for the championship of the school. More than once did the Seniors think that they would win, but in the end a disappointing surprise was in store for them. The Juniors carried bfi the honors of the game with a score of 24 to 22. , Four days later on the afternoon of March 25, the Sophomores met the Juniors on the court to play the last game of our basketball season. During the first half the Sophomores managed to have the higher score. Believe it or not, Juniors? Then the tables turned and the score at the end of the game proclaimed the Juniors the victors. It was 33 to 21. ' ANITA BURKE '32. The Hockey Game At Carpenter's pond the Juniors met defeat in a hockey game at the hands of the Sophomores to the tune of 5 to 2. Although the Juniors outnumbered the Sophs by two men the Sophs showed their superior playing throughout the game by exhausting the Juniors in the half. The Sophs, rejoicing 'in their victory, challenged the Seniors, who declined the challenge. Arthur Bruni was the referee. ' The line up for the Juniors was as follows: George Juleus, Aloysius McManus, Charles Allen, Brandon Blades, Elmer Blake, Albert lVIetz, Jimmy Carrara, Nicholas Maisano, William Cooke, William Cook. The line up for the Sophomores was as follows: Leon Heller, Joe Oliva, Ray Lyons, Tom Horne, Jack Ward, John Lang, Charles Henry, Clayton Casino. THOMAS HORNE '32 71 V The Frolic On the evening of February 28 an obviously elated herd of the residents of Fort Lee, Palisade, Coytesville, and outlying districts, on foot and riding, surged in the general direction of Fort Lee High. Being of an inquisitive nature, I went where the crowd was milling. n I entered the high-ceiled, imposing gym, and inquired of a by- stander what was to happen. He told me to stand by and Watch. Presently a group of fair feminine ball throwers trotted out on the floor, and started passing practice. These, myinformer told me, were the Senior girls. A few minutes elapsed and I was startled by a roar of rib-cracking laughter. I turned to observe the cause, and immediately added my shouts to the already vibrating roar. There before me, was a grouppof masculine figures varying in size and brawn arrayed in a very charming ensembletlof ,gym bloomers and white middies. I was informed that the broad-shouldered Apollo was Mr. Spenceg that the two mustachioed gentlemen were Messrs. Strong and Prallg that the tall smiling lad was Mr. Briden- bergg that the s'im blonde one was Mr. lfVhittemore, and so on down the line-up, until I could identify every male faculty member. 72 1930 'THE TIONEER 1930 ai :a.1Ja?'Qzaua? lznaifzi Ja? 4-amor'-in Ja? 1-:IpJ.a?':a.3DaI Z336?':63 The teams lined up. How could the girls win with those tall-brutes towering over them? But I have the time to give only the high spots of the game. Evidently Mr. Bridenberg had been 21 football star in his earlier days as his object, upon receiving the ball, was to see how far he could run without touching it to the ground. There was also a grave suspicion circulating that Mr. Miller was an admirer of Odysseus, as he played forward, guard, and center. We must admit too that lVIr. Prall is a polished gentleman, because when he accidently upset one of his opponents he let the game go hang while he assisted her to her feet. - A popular vote should be taken to see whether or not lvlessrs. Stukey, Strong, Thompson and their team mates should be awarded their letters. But, in spite of the girls putting up an excellent resistence, and the men's comedy, which even excels "College Life," the men won. lVIaybe the girls respected their teachers and let them win, but in any case, the Fort Lee Frolic of '30 will stand out in the memories of all those who rocked with merriment during it. , VINCENT GREENE '32. ., I 1 .

We sincerely hope that this little token of sympathy for your ever irritated throat, caused by our incessant chattering and gabbing, will be used faithfully three times' a day, with a little water. i Nine out of ten use it-eight of ten die. ' Best of luck, Whitty. A Au Revoir, BARRAGE OF STATIC. Is It the Truth? Joe Howell-The only thing I'll ever learn in school is how to be a good Copywriter. Tonic Needed by Parents Miss Brady fdiscussing history marks,-l'd become sick if anyone brought home a report card to me with a. "D" or "F" on it. Florence Baedor-My mother gets "C" sick.

The plays have been our source of greatest pleasure. The Hallowe'en play, 'fShadows on the Moon", was our first. Closely following it was "Magic Windows" through which we say old and new book friends. A number of. seventh and eighth graders participated in the Christmas pantomime representing Christmas in other lands. Sixth graders were sometimes our guests. A visiting group gave a program, "Safety First", introduced in a unique way by Seven One and Seven Two pupils. Our first party was fittingly a Thanksgiving party, and a beautiful and enjoyable party it was. The gaily colored balloons, the artistic hand-made turkey favors and the cafeteria in party attire were typical of the occasion. The wheelbarrow races, rooster fights, balloon wars, and strange "animals" will never be forgotten. The story hour was also an enjoyable feature. The next party was at Christmas time. Caroling seemed to reach the ears of a fat, jolly Santa Claus with a very familiar voice. His pack was filled with gifts and lollypops for all. A holiday atmosphere filled the air. The Junior High's first year of athletics was a success. During the basket-ball season the team won three games out of five. The interclass basketball champions are Eight One and Seven Two. The classes of Eight One and Eight Two have adopted the military formation and have to salute officers. The best tumblers are pupils from the rooms of Mrs. Spraker and Miss Schwab. We are a music-loving school. Music is becoming more and more a part of our daily school life. The girls' chorus has assisted in several programs. The orchestra began with six members and it now has thirty. The band includes thirty-five of our pupils. A resume of Junior High activities would not be complete without mentioning the art department, which has so generously supplied our library, class rooms, and halls with posters. Through these posters many of our activities have been reflected. VERA SALUSSOLIA '34. S8 f S ,-ff.fv--5 A r S 'C ' fl- 'gi' 1 v N 1 cv bf V 5 ,I gg f Alumni CLASS OF 1920 Della Abbott Chflrs.

BAEDOR '30, 96 1930 THE QDIONESR 1930 a?z.aDa?z.:Ja?'-aaJai'Qz1Da?-z.1DaI 4:.aJa?2:.a9.a?ZIaDaT-zbdai-ian: Reorganization of the Pioneer Contrary to precedent, the Pioneer staff this year has been composed of students representing each class group. Recognizing the reluctance of the merchants to advertise in the Pioneer since they cannot receive a proportionate return from their investment, the Board of Education appropriated the amount of money anticipated from the advertisements. A further source of income, while the publication of the Pioneer was a senior class project, has been the returns from the class plays and from class dues. Following the establishment of the central fund of the Student Government the budget of the Pioneer was submitted to the Internal Accounting Committee and was approved. A third source of income has been and still is the sale of the annual itself. The cost of the cover and the selling price of the annual itself have been reduced so that the Pioneer may be available to every student in the school. A further change is that the Pioneer is no longer a combination of magazine and year book but is a record of events. Also, for the first time, the activities of the Junior high school have been included in this edition. 97 1930 THE TIONEER 1930 ai Lina? -zinc: fzdoai fiibai wana? -15.355-?:aQnaI wana? 1-ina?
