E hope that with the adfz.-ance of time this book
'will become more wllzmble in reealling remin-
icences rlzerished by all of us.
lffith this in mind we have compiled a history of
events for the year 1950-1951 and trust that our wish
will be fullglled.
The proximity of the new HlldSOI1 River Bridge
'whielz is of .vueh great imporfaltre to-Fort Lee and is
selzedulezl to be rompleted this year has suggested the use
of bridges as an appropriate art motif for this book.

NE day during a class extreme drowsiness overwhelmed me. When I awoke,
all appeared strange about me. I seemed to be in front of Fort Lee High
School, but everything looked different. Deciding I had better go into the
office and do some heavy explaining, 1 started up the steps. In the office I was
greeted by an alert, gray-haired lady.
"Where is lVIiss Brandt?" I asked.
"I am she," the elderly ,woman replied.
"Youl why-why-what is the date ?" said I, fearing that a Rip Van Winkle
trick had been put over on me.
"It is the fifth of June, l96l," she replied.
Then it dawned on me what had really happened. I was, in truth, a second
Rip returning after thirty years' absence.
"By the way, Frieda," said I, "do you by any chance remember the Class of
'31 P" .
"Certainly," she replied with a chuckle at my uncertainty.
"Could you tell me what has happened to them all?" I asked.
"Very easily," she said and withdrew a book from one of the drawers in a
high filing cabinet.
It proved to be the 1955 edition of the "Pioneer", Turning to the alumni
notes, I searched for the Class of 1931. There at the top of a page I found a nota-

Far different from the listed achievement had been the aspirations of that group of
classmates I had known thirty years ago. Then with a rumble and a roar the
building fell about my bent shoulders. Awaking, I found myself staring at laughing
classmates, one of whom was pounding my back while an exasperated teache' was
awaiting an answer to her question.
N September 9, 1927, a startled group assembled in the corridors of Fort Lee
High School. After much serious thinking, the faculty decided that we were
the most intellectual students and the best athletes ever to enter our school.
To verify this complimentary statement we, as Sophomores, spent most of our
spare time practicing baseball and basketball in our new gymnasium.
Backed by two solid years of experience in high school life, we entered our third
year determined to surpass our former record and to overcome any obstacles that
might hinder us. Football, a new sport, increased our enjoyment and filled our
spare time. We concluded our social activities of 1930 with a prom for the depart-
We, a large part of our original group, realized one of our fondest desires of
being regularly ordained as Seniors in the fall of 1930. In April another delight
was experienced by some of us when we became charter members of the new Nation-
al Honor Society. In the spring we were not surprised when our debating team
easily defeated its opponents and we had the privilege of reading our numerals on
Our high school days will soon be ended, but may we never forget our good
times together nor the thoughts instilled in our minds by our teachers.

We fearfully relinquish the helm of the good ship Fort Lee High School to our

and indifference towards any responsibilities, we are skeptical as to whether they are
capable of such a liable position. VVith much erudition we feel sure that the good
ship will founder under the guidance of its new crew. With this in our minds we
fervently pray that our inferior followers may negotiate the ship safely through its

Residing in Mrs. O'lVIally's Speakeasy.
We are gathered here tonight to sing our parting song,
To pluck from memory's wreath the buds which there so sweetly throng.
Can it be that We shall see these happy days no more?
Or shall our life still brighter grow beyond the distant shore?
Memories, thoughts of days gone before, gone before,
lylemories, which are treasured by hearts ever more, ever more,
On Life's bridge We're standing, soon we'll reach the landing,
As Life's stream goes rolling on before us.
llflemories, thoughts of days gone before, live ever more.

THE CLASS OF 1932
HE Junior Class with its nfnety-one students is the largest that Fort Lee High
has had the good fortune to have. We Junfors may be seen in rooms 208,
209, 211, 213, and 215. Mrs. Quinn-, Mr. Strong, Miss VValler, Miss
lhleeker, and bliss Brady are our advisors.
The Junior Class was well represented on both varsity basketball teams:
Anita Burke, Christine Di Bella, Adelaide Poppe, and Fanny Wilson having worked
on the girls' team, and Orlando Grande, Thomas Horne, Leon Heller, and Lester
lVIuth on the b0ys'.
Our debating team consisted of Dean Grandin, captain, lVIary Calkin, Samuel
Rosenthal, and Charles Sheridan. Our team was defeated by the Seniors.
The Junior member of the Commission during the first part of the year was
Frank Burgard, who found it necessary to resign because of his many outside duties.
Since his resignation, Dean Grandin has very ably carried on the work of commis-
The Class of '32 has had a large share in the plays given in assembly this year.
Several Juniors have appeared in the three short plays given by the Library Staff,
the Christmas play, "The Traveling Man", and "Abraham Lincoln". In addition
to these, the third period English III Class presented two scenes from "The Tale of
Two Cities" which were greatly enjoyed by the audfenee.

CLASS OF 1933
HIS year the sophomore class has an enrollment of approximately one hundred
fifty students. We were assigned to practically the same home rooms as
last year, namely, 214, 212, 207, and 206. Our home room advisers are
llflrs. Strong, Nliss Vorees, lVIr. Nliller, and hir. lVhittemore.
ln the various activities of the school the sophomores have done their part well,
Those members who played for us on the gridiron were lliartin Remore, Richard
Iedlicka, and Charles Robotti. Charles Robotti was our representative on the court
also. Our debating team, consisting of VVilliam Sheridan, captain, Melvin Rosen-
blum, Robert WVhite, and Paul Lione, came out victorious in their encounter wfth the
freshmen. The outcome of the final debate with the seniors is yet to be decided.
Another of our number, VVillard Ortlip, took part in "A Book Revue", the first
play of the school year.

THE STUDENT GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION
HE machinery of student government started off well this year, the commfs-
sion form of government having already been firmly installed within the
school the preceding year. Elections of representatives to the Student Coun-
cfl from each home room were carried on quickly and efliciently. The year has been
a highly successful one for the Student Council.
Regular sessions of the Council have been instituted on the second and fourth
Thursday of each month. On the second Thursday the Senior High School Council
meets apart from the Junior High School Council and on the fourth Thursday they
hold a joint meeting. The Commission meets every Friday, the second period.
The members of the Commission are: Brandon Blades, chairmang Dean Grandin,
secretaryg Willard Ortlip, treasurerg VJilliam Fosolo, Karl Metz, and Clark Foster.
The hrst four listed are of the senior high school and the latter two of the junior
The faculty advisers are lbir. Thompson, lVIrs. Rehberg, Miss lVIaud Brady,
lVIr. Strong, and llflr. Stukeyg the last named is a permanent honorary member of
the Council. The faculty advisers have proved invaluable to the Council and have
fully cooperated with it in all its enterprises.
The Student Council is linked closely with the student body by means of the
various committees. There is a total of eighteen committees in the senior and junior
high school which afford a means of permitting the majority of the student body to
take part in the Council's work and also cause greater interest to be developed among
the student body.
The committees of the Senior high school are as follows:
l. Traffic--lvliss hflildred Brady, llfliss lValler-Francis Petrosino.
2. Athletic-llflr. Spence, Bliss NVatson, llliss Smith--Helen Gilpin.
3. Pioneer-lldr. Strong, Nliss ll-leeker-Vera Salussolia.
4. Social-llirs. Strong, hflr. VV'hittemore--Gertrude Lorenz.
5. Finance-lvliss Smith, lvlrs. Foley-VVilla1'd Urtlip.
6. Citizenship-llflr. Chase, Nlrs. Quinn, llfliss King-Helen Visconti.
7. Sanitation-Nliss VVatson, llfliss Gardiner, llflr. Nliller, hflr. Bridenburg, Bliss

3. Citizenship-Nlrs. Baerthlein.
4. ,Entertainment-lVIrs. Spraker, hlrs. Kuhlman.
5. Cafeteria-lVliss Schwab.
6. Lost and Found-Nliss Neville. y
Special Commendation is due the Traffic Committee and the Social Committee.
Closer relationship and a lceener understanding of affairs around the school
between the council and the student body is maintained by home room periods which
are held once a month. The students at these informal meetings in their home rooms
discuss unsatisfactory conditions prevalent throughout the school and offer helpful
remedies for them. Suggestions set forth in these periods have proved most helpful
to the Council.
Before the close of the school year a new Student Council will have been elected.
It is only proper that we take advantage of this opportunity to wish the future
Student Council members great success in whatever they may undertake to do.
DEAN GRANDIN '32.
THE HONOR SOCIETY
HE idea of several of the faculty that proficiency in scholarship should receive
greater recognition by the high school has culminated in the formation of the
honor society, which is composed of those seniors and juniors who stand high-
est in their class work, The charter members of the society were chosen from the
senior class only, but in January one senior and the three juniors who are outstanding
in scholarship and all-round ability were added to the society.
No definite organization has yet been decided upon but lN'Irs. Foley has been
chosen as faculty adviser to be assisted by lvliss Waller. It is planned to link the
society with one of the national ones, but no steps can be made to carry out this aim
until the society is organized.
It is expected that the society will not only reward high marks, but will enable
its members to prove of real benefit and service to the school in various ways.
The charter members of the honor society are: Evelyn Binder, Philip Ciancio,
Doris Deutsch, Carey Johansen, Dorothy llfluchmore, Fred Oman, Virginia Oman,
Marjorie Ortlip, Mary Scott, and Hector Zucchino. Those students added in Jan-
uary are Mildred Yach, senior, Dean Grandin, Katherine Krall, and Agnes Walsh.

URING this eighth annual season of interclass debating in Fort Lee High
School the class teams have discussed many topics of importance and interest
to the participants and the audience. The seniors and juniors debated the
question, "Resolved: That unemployment insurance would be beneficial to the
United States". The senior team, consisting of Margaret Novak, captain, Hector
Zucchino, Arthur Dyer, and--e Fred Oman, was victorious. The juniors-Dean
Grandin, captain, Charles Sheridan, Samuel Rosenthal, and lbiary Calkins-upheld
the affirmative side of the argument.
The second debate was between the freshmen and sophomores on the question,
"Resolved: That interclass debating, as generally conducted in American high schools,
is beneficial". The Sophomores-XVilliam Sheridan, captain, lVIelvin Rosenblum,
Robert White, and Paul Lione-came out the victors. The freshman team, com-
posed of Kenneth Kilcarr, captain, Charles ltfiiesmer, Frank Ciancio, and llflary
Nankivel, upheld the negative.
The final contest was held in assembly on lblarch 31. The proposition, "Re-
solved: That the United States should join the League of Nations", offered an in-
teresting discussion, and after a hard fought battle with their rivals, the sophomores,
the seniors again were the proud victors. This victory conferred the honor of the
debating championship for 1931 upon the senior class.

Tl-IE INTERNAL ACCOUNTING CLUB
HE Internal Accounting Club was organized last year for the purpose of keep-

lar activities. At the beginning of the school year all clubs and extra-cur-
ricular activities must submit a budget to this group, which the Finance Committee

HE Journalism Club undertook for its project this year the publication of a
bi-weekly mimeographed high school paper, the FORT LEE-DER, with
the aspiration of supplementing it next year with a printed publication.
In November, the ninesenior members, with Mr. Whittemore acting as faculty
adviser, organized into an editorial staff, and published the first issue Cin six pagesl
of the FCRT LEE-DER. The first four issues were entered into the national
contest of the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, in which it was awarded third
place in its division. As the paper grew to an eleven page sheet, the staff was en-
larged to twenty-three. '
All work on the FORT LEE-DER is done after school. Meetings are held
at least three times a week. Aid in the. mimeographing of the paper during the first
semester of the school year was provided by members of the office practice class, who
typed stencils during the class period. The paper now has a group of staff typists.
In lhlarch, six members of the club were present at a journalistic conference in
Palmyra, New Jersey, and eight attended the three-day Columbia Scholastic -Press
Association Convention in New'York City.
The FORT LEE-DER, which prints no advertisements, is entirely self-sup-
porting, meeting its expenses from the proceeds of the paper which is sold at three
cents a copy.
The Journalism Club is a member of the National Scholastic Press Association,
the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, and the Quill and Scroll, an international
honorary society for high school' journalists.

THE LIBRARY STAFF
N able and enthusiastic corps of student workers, under the direction and
supervision of lVliss King, has been working industriously to put all the facili-
ties of our well-equipped library at the disposal of the students. They have
done much of the routine work of the library, such as checking, mending, and arrang-
ing books, and thus have aided the library to function smoothly.
Every member of the staff is required to devote three periods a week to labora-
tory work in the library, and also to attend the staff meeting held every Tuesday
night at which time are discussed various problems which may have come up in the
library during the weelc. ln order to help the staff to become better able to assist
students who require aid in finding information, llliss King has devoted several
meetings to acquainting the council with all the sources of information in the library.
Our one party, held just before the Christmas vacation and given to the staff by
lVIiss King, was a fitting and enjoyable climax to all the hard work that had preceded

HE Fort Lee Hi-Y Club started off early in September with an executive
meeting comprised of the faculty adviser and the officers. The form of
meeting which was outlined for the rest of the year, called for a ritual, a
group discussion, a business meeting, and a feature. In view of the difficulty in
finding an open date in the afternoon, the meetings were held once every two weeks
in the evening.
The club, true to its purpose to aid the school and community, has undertaken
several projects. The first has been the sale of candy at athletic contests. The funds
thus obtained have been used to buy the school a banner which was presented at
assembly, and to print baseball schedules. The checking of coats at school dances
has been another service undertaken by the Hi-Y boys.
The members have had several socials and are looking forward to a grand
finale to be held sometime in June. The officers are Francis Petrosino, presidentg

THE FORT LEE. ,Pl-IILATELIC ASSOCIATION
URING the second year of its existence the Fort Lee High School Stamp
Club has met every lylonday during the activity period under the able
guidance of hir. C. B. Strong. The membership has increased from ll to 18.
The meetings have been divided into two divisions: business and the trading of
stamps. Through the latter the members have steadily increased their collections.
The club has visited several places of interest among whicbxare the VVesting-
house stamp exhibit and the exhibit at the New York Public Library. VVe also
have had a stamp exhibition of our own for a week in the school showcase. Stamps
from the United States, Germany, Canada, Great Britain, Japan, China, and South
America were displayed. ' A
The club has taken part in a program of the P. T. A. at which we explained
the aims and purposes of our club and of stamp collecting.
At the request of the Philatelic Club the Board of Education has procured a
well-known philatelist, hir. Sigmund Rothschild, who will give a lecture with
stereopticon slides in one of our assemblies. ll-Ir. Rothschild is the author of a book
entitled "Stories Postage Stamps Tell" which is in the club library, and he speaks
every Saturday over Station YV O R.

LE CERCLE FRANCAIS
HF, French Club, or Le Cercle Francais, was organized during the pioneer
days of our school, at the request of several older French students under the
supervision of Miss VValler. Its membership is limited to the third and
fourth year French classes. At the beginning of the second semester a number of
superior students of the second year group are admitted to the club.
i The meetings, which are held monthly, are carried on in French as far as
possible, as one of the aims of the club is to develop French conversation.
A topic is selected and announced previously at each meeting. Some one is
chosen to prepare the program and a general discussion of the subject is held. Such
topics as French art, music, drama, poetry, are selected.
There are many benefits derived from this club. Besides its conversational op-
portunity, its treatment of the various subjectsdiscussed has its educational and cul-
tural value. The French Club is one of the few groups in which members of three
classes are associated. Thus it is an invaluable asset in its promulgation 'of school

ARLY in the first semester the Dramatic Club was organized under the
direction of llfliss Katherine Livingstone, our talented and capable dramatic
coach. Two sections were immediately formed-one to meet on Monday
afternoons, the other to meet on VVednesday afternoons. Any student interested in
this phase of work was eligible to join the club. ,
This semester the members are planning to stage eight one-act plays from which
four will be enacted on two successive evenings in April, and four will be pro-
duced on two successive evenings in lVIay. Formerly two plays have been produced'
by the school, but Bliss Livingstone hopes that by increasing the size of the cast she
may increase the attendance and profits derived from these performances.
Judging by the excellent short sketches with which we have been repeatedly
entertained in our assembly programs, those who attend may expect to spend a very
enjoyable evening as a result of the coaching and preparation devoted to the plays.
Nlargaret Novak is the property manager with Betty Kupfer and Dorothy Feuerbach
as assistants. Betty Abbott is in charge of the costuming and designing with Ger-

THE WEEKLY ASSEMBLIES
NUMBER of our assembly programs stand out as being especially memorable.
The pantomine commemorating the spirit of Thanksgiving was something of a
novelty. The Christmas allegory was a tale with the maxim "Treat thy
neighbor as thyself" as the moral. The scenes from "The Tale of Two Cities" by
Dickens were presented by one of the Junior English classes. The "mob" in the
courtroom advertised its presence by -frequent and violent outbursts. Lincoln's
Birthday celebration was .an episode from Drinkwaterys "Abraham Lincolnu. It
was at the time the great emancipator accepted the nomination for the presidency
and vowed to deliver the death blow to slavery. Excerpts from well-known books
were presented by the Library Council, using stage properties which represented the
various objects on the top of a,desk. These made the players appear to be minia-
ture characters who had strayed from between the covers of the books which formed
part of the background of the setting as well as the theme of the program. The
sample of the Junior High play given in assembly did much to increase the sale of
tickets for that very delightful entertainment.
Among the all too few moving picture films were scenes from a sugar plantation,
a lesson in pictures and other educational films demonstrating various products in the
making. Renditions by the glee clubs, the orchestra, and the band, and solos by in-
dividuals have supplied the necessary musical atmosphere. The talks given have been
on banking, the home room system by Principal Heigh of Teaneck, and General
Pershing by a representative from the Times. Other incidentals, such as "sermons"
on preserving the building, and building school spirit, practicing cheers, and sales
talks have filled out the programs.
VVe anticipate a number of noteworthy assembly programs to be given in the
intervening months before the close of school. Among these the outcome of the inter-
class debates is awaited with much speculation, however, only time will tell which

girls' glee club. '
A lecture is to be given by hir. Samuel Rothschild, who is the author of the
book "Stories Postage Stamps Tell". This talk is to be illustrated by stereoptical
views. The gist of his talk will be on the growth of stamps, Stamp collecting, and
stories told by different stamps. ll-lr. Rothschild is one of the authorities on stamps

VVe are also to be entertained and instructed by the Stradivarious Quartet.
The chief aim of this quartet is to make it possible for students in schools and colleges
to hear and appreciate first-class music. Four Stradivarius instruments are used by
this quartet, hence the name of the organization. Alfred Pochon, its organizer, and
his quartet have been very favorably received by some of the largest universities in

LL E Hof'
HE social season of Fort Lee High School opened with an impromptu
Hallowe'en Dance followed several weeks later by the annual Thanksgiving
Nlasquerade. Autumn colors and the gayest costumes transformed the Gym
into a Mardi Gras. The Feature of the evening was the Grand March and the
selection of prize winning costumes.
lVhat happens to Christmas trees after Christmas? Any Fort Lee student will
tell you that they make splendid dance decorations. The january Hop proved that.
The walls solidly banked with snow covered evergreens, strings of soft colored
lights, a real woodsy fragrance, and the setting was perfect for a lVIid-winter event.
A Balloon Dance in February and Green and VVhite Shamrock in Nlarch pro-
vided seasonal atmosphere for the dance-loving joy-makers.
ln lkflay, Spring-fever assailed us and the Spring Dance was the result. Pastels,
waving streamers, boughs loaded with blossoms, gave us our idea of a garden in
Pomeranz Orchestra and the K'Admirals", our ,Jazz-artists couldnlt have been
better than Duke Ellington himself.
The Social Committee with Gertrude Lorenz as chairman and lN1rs. Esther
Strong and hir. Hugh lfVhittemore as faculty advisors generously gave their time
and efforts to create the enjoyable series of dances.
VVe also wish to thank the P. T. A. for their interest and help in the dances.

FOOTBALL I 930-I 93 Iq
ORT LEE High entered its second season of inter-scholastic football competi-
tion this year and emerged with five victories, five defeats, and one tie to ac-
count for the eleven games on the schedule.
Early in September, a squad of two score or more reported for practice. Later
on, the varsity team was moulded around six members of last year's team.
This year also marked the opening of football relations with a keen rival,
Cliffside Park. The result of the game was in Cliftside's favor, 6-0.
The schedule was as follows:

BASKETBALL I 930-I 931
HIS year Coach Spence produced a basketball quintet that will not be for-
gotten in a long while. Out of the total of twenty-eight games played, nine-
teen were victories for Fort Lee, while nine were losses.
'The team, captained by Gus Nloltlce, started the season with a victory over
Stevens Prep but lost the next five games. However, after the Christmas vacation
the Ifort Lee team began to turn in victories in more regular order. In the re-
maining twenty-two games, the Fort Lee varsity suffered only four reversals.
On the team this year were a pair of players that Fort Lee can be proud of.
These two are Augustus Fallotico and Henry lldodersohn. Fallotico showed him-
self to be-quite a point-getter amassing a total of 34-Z points to he recognized as the
eounty's highest scorer. He was also awarded a forward position on the mythical
all-county team. "Hank" Modersohii, who played alternately at centre and forward
with Fallotieo, also did his share of the scoring and stood third in the individual
county scoring race.

BASEBALL I 929-30 A
LTHOUGH the Fort Lee varsity baseball team did not enjoy as successful a
season as that of the previous year, they had a fairly good season. With
seventeen games on the schedule, ten were victories and the others losses.
Coach Spence did not have a particularly hard task developing a baseball team.
Most of the players on the previous team returned for the sport and a neat baseball
outfit was built around the veterans.
The pitching department of our nine was pretty strong, being made up of Allen,
Casino, Muth, and Dittrich. Allen and Casino, experienced pitchers, handled most
of the pitching burden for the season. lVIuth and Dittrich showed what they were
made of with the few chances they had in some of the games.
The members of the team were Allen, pitcherg Blades, catcherg A. Bruni, 3rd

bination. Not enough can be said for the conscientious efforts of Nliss Wat-
son and her two assistants, Helen and Edith. A
Early in the season two of the team's best players, Nlargaret Ennis, star for-
ward, and Eleanor Corker, crack guard, deserted the team to gain matrimonial titles.
The loss of these two players made a considerable difference to the squad, but with
all-around good playing and splendid pass work, the girls finished their season with
an enviable record. -

THE TUMBLING CLUB
HE Tumbling Club has finished its second yearlin great style. Starting as a
minor organization, it has become an important factor in the social activities
of the school.
The purpose of the club is to give the boys who do not participate in athletics
a chance to receive the physical education which is an essential factor in every boy's
On March 21, the gymnasium classes gave a Variety Show. One of the leading
groups participating was the Tumbling Club. The boys did stunts which astounded
their own parents and friends. They did everything from a simple forward roll to
a back flip. This show was a real "coup de maitre" for Coach Spence.
The main participants in the Tumbling Club are the Junior High School
students. They have shown an active, contitnuous interest in their work. There
are only two oflicers in the Tumbling Club and they are elected because of their good
work. The captain this year is Fred Cavaliere and the lieutenants are the Koenig
Coach Spence said in an interview, "In the future, I hope to devote more time
to the Tumbling Club and I sincerely believe that by this addition of time, the
Tumbling Club will form a nucleus for all extra entertainments."
We hope that the club will have another successful year of handsprings, back
flips, and monkey-rolls.
MELVIN ROSENBLUM '33.
THE I 93 I FROLIC
HE night of nights is here. The faculty boys are all ready to meet the girls'
varsity in a friendly game of basketball. That is, all except "lVIarjory"
Spence. He has just whistled to "Josephine" Stukey who is now taking a
very tiny piece of gum from his mouth and plastering it on the run in "Marj's"
stocking. But this does not make "Marj" a bit angry. fSomeone gave him the
stockings for Christmas, and he's never been able to wear them out.D
As the male sextet bashfully dribble the ball down the court, wagers are made
on all sides. The popular sympathy seems to be with the faculty. They all look
so delicate. llfirs. Whittemore has just called "Mitzie" over to wipe some of the
lipstick from his face.
"There, that's much better," she's saying. "Now you look less' hussifiedf'
And can't "lVIitzie" blush attractively! But now he is running off joyfully to
the rest of his playmates. D
Referee "Hanky' iliodersohn steps to the middle of the court and calls for the
balls. The two teams line up quickly and with his whistle the game is on. During
the first half, "Helen", Bridenberg astonishes everybody by his splendid pass Work
with the two forwards, "Flo" Thompson and "ll'Iitzie" VVhittemore. It is really
shameful, though, to watch "Flo" carry on with his guard. His attempts to grab
the ball from her speak eloquently of a ngreat-necking" past. As the half whistle
blows. the girls and boys retire to their respective rooms to eat their respective or-
anges and talk over the game so far, play by play. The score is 20 to I9 in favor
of the varsity. '
A few minutes later the varsity re-appears and soon after the flower of maiden-
hood, personified by the male faculty, trips out in two's and three's. Last of all
"Edith" Strong and "llfIarj" Spence stroll in. Ulbiarjn is very pleased with the
results of his latest permanent. CI-Ie has just had it set, but he is not telling "Edith',
that.l He is explaining that his favorite beauty specialist has actually perfected a
painless, sweatless method of permanent waving. "Edith" is astonished. He has
never dared to brave the curling irons, but he has decided to investigate the matter
further, and if the price is satisfactory, perhaps he'll plunge. "Edie" has often ad-
mired the ringlets of "Marj's" crown of glory, and now his heart skips a beat as his
mind conjures the picture of his own wig after a visit to his boy friend's beauty
parlor. His fond hope is nipped in the bud by the ref's whistle calling the girls and
boys to resume their blood-thirsty engagement.
The second half is characterized by a record breaking event. llflarjory Ortlip
breaks and raises her scoring record by sinking the ball for two points. In the last
quarter, spirit runs high. Neither team is able to gain a lead, and the battle is hard
fought. At this point, however, "Iva" Burgard is forced to call a foul on Eleanor
Fallotico who has just wholloped her brother "Gussy" for trying to take the ball
out of her hands. A family quarrel seems to be ensuing-now they are separated.,
and "Gussy" is given a free shot which he makes. This gives the faculty a one
point lead. If one of our crack forwards-lVIarj Ennis and lVIarj Ortlip-does not
do something, that one point will prove to be our VVaterloo. Oh, darn! lt is too
late after all! The whistle just blew. This hardly seems fair, because, as you all
know, it is a sister's privilege and pleasure to sock her brother once in a while.
The final score is 33-32 in favor of the males, and we are really glad to see the
faculty happy. Still the varsity cannot help feeling that before "Iva" officiates at
his next game, he should read his rule book-article ninety-nine, paragraph three.

LARGE crowd was thrilled and entertained at the gym show put on by lvlr.
Spence's pupils, which was one of the outstanding events of llflarch. The
boxing championship bouts were the main features of the evening. The girls
had no little part, for they put on a boxing act' which was a scream. It was great
to see our fair lassies slashing away tooth and nail at each other with biting and
hair-pulling prohibited. Dorothy juleus tossed about one of those fresh guys when
she put on an exhibit of how the modern girls take care of themselves-beware
The freshmen and sophomores put on boxing, pyramid, and exercise-drill acts
to show the visitors what supposedly goes on in the gym classes, while lVIelvin Rosen-
blum and Elliot Binder showed the customers what is done in the gym when lVIr.
Spence has his back turned. The junior High Tumbling Club again thrilled the
spectators with many new and old stunts. H
-The climax of the evening was provided by the fistic encounters and the
wrestling matches. Some black eyes and red noses were exhibited the next day, but
heroes must suffer some discomforts. The features of the wrestling matches were
Raymond Lyons' pin-wheel hold on Herbert Kapner, which failed by a narrow
margin, and John Richards lusty lunge, which brought down Francis Petrosino and
the ring too. The most interesting bouts were lVIartin Remore's slashing attack,
Grande's marvelous left jab which did noble work, and the scientific bout which was
put on 'by james Carrara and Albert llfletz.

JUNIOR HIGH ACTIVITIES
HE most attractive and most interesting activity of the year was "The Book
Revue". Only once in a lifetime does a school have the opportunity of
having as many distinguished classic personages in its midst as did our school
when this revue made its spectacular appearance with one hundred and sixty-six boys
and girls taking parts. VVe saw the typical school boy with his book report task
turned into a pleasure as he viewed in his dreams the characters representing realism,
humor, pathos, and romance. These masterpieces and wel-1 known favorites thus
entered his life. Aesthetic dances of the colonial, revolutionary, and civil War periods
were given. Twins of many lands made their appearance asx did dancers of ,other
lands. Stevenson's pirates and the Indians of old gave much color to the play.
Another picturesque play, "Friends from Overseas", was so well received that
it was repeated for the P.eT. A. Several students representing nurses explained the
work of the American Red Cross. A second part of the play was a scene showing
several school children awaiting the return of a portfolio from overseas. Gaily cos-
tumed children stepped from the portfolio representing other nations and told of the
activities of their Red Cross organizations. ,
During National Thrift VVeek the seventh and eighth grade arithmetic pupils
presented a thrift project. The first sketch explained thrift. The second sketch.
"A Scene at the Savings Bank", stressed the importance of saving regularly.
The Wo1'ld Friendship program, which was in keeping with the spirit of Edu-
cational Week and Armistice Day, was sponsored by the Rotary Club. Pupils of
the seventh and eighth ,grades took part in a "Pageant of the Nations." The Spirit
of Education and Knowledge lighted the candle of each nation represented.
hiarch nineteenth was known as "International Day" in our school. A geog-
raphy sketch, written by an eighth grade group, proved very interesting.. Each
country in South America was represented. The importance of the Panama Canal
in establishing a firm, friendly relation between the United States and Latin Amer-
ica was brought out. The theme of the program was a plea for friendship and a
better understanding between nations. '
Better citizenship has been the result of excellent work done by the various
committees. Each committee has special duties. The sanitation committee has
furthered all aims of cleanliness. Courtesy has been our watchword. The cafeteria
and traffic committees have worked together with good results. VVC have a repre-
sentative on the constitutional staff. The lost and found group has helped us to
locate many lost articles. '
The ,social committee has sponsored our parties. The Hallowelen party, held
in the artistically decorated gym, was a welcome to the seventh graders. The "Five
Ghosts" play gave a spooky atmosphere. The Christmas parties were held in the
home rooms. Carols were sung and amusing inexpensive gifts exchanged.
The home room periods have helped us to respect the opinions of others. In
this way good school spirit was exhibited. Clubs have been formed in several home
rooms. The Junior Nlath Club has created a new interest in problems pertaining
to eighth grade mathematics. .
Uther activities we have enjoyed have been along athletic and musicallines.
Our orchestra is doing praiseworthy work. lVIany of our pupils are in the band.
The "Variety Show" was a combination entertainment of music and athletics. Ex-
hibitions of tumbling and wrestling were given before junior and senior assemblies.
Medals were won by some junior boys for the boxing championships. The girls'
gymnastics has been equally interesting. Folk and aesthetic dancing has been en-
joyed. Two groups of girls assisted in the formal music concert.
