0 n the Gllaaa nf 1924:
It has been a source of keen regret to me that during this past year l have
been unable to become better acquainted with youg that other duties made it
impossible for me to get into more intimate touch with your individual prob-
lems, your ambitions, your hopes. It has been a distinct loss to me and the
opportunity of real service has thereby been greatly lessened.
Nevertheless from what l know about you as a class, l feel assured that
you are leaving Nlasten Park willing to accept the challenge which comes to
every thinking person. Wholesale disrespect for law, unbridled selfishness,
putting personal preferences in the van and disregarding the rights of others
are rampant in the World. -To combat these propensities which are so discon-
certing ancl dangerous will require all your energies, all your ability. Use the
equipment which you have acquired in your high school course against every
tendency that will lower in the slightest degree your ideas of what is fair and
right. Noise and clamor never gained a permanent victory. lt is the uplifting
influence at home, the determined effort in the cityls activities, the quiet ballot
in our country's policies that slowly, but surely win in the strife for betterment.
To this high task, I commit you with confidence. It is worthy of your

A ship in full sail is a pleasing sight with its white sails billowing
above the dark hull. Our artist has most fittingly chosen such a ship
to symbolize the Class of l924, as we leave the haven which has shel-
tered us for four years. A sailing vessel must have a definite course
and an intelligent guide to keep it true. For 1924 the way has been
carefully charted by the many who have gone this Way before, and
we have had careful instruction how to steer our course so that we
will not drift into Sargasso Seas of disappointment and ruin.
Filled with the spirit of Masten Park as expressed in our motto,
"Believe you can," let us go forth then with determination to reach
the port of Success. Self-confidence is one of the important requisites
for success. We do not mean over-confidence, but the quiet self-con-
tained assurance that gives men the power to do the great deeds of the
world. Thus in our own success shall we bring success to Alma Mater
in her task of giving her children the necessary strength, knowledge,
and skill to bring the ship of life safely to port.

Br. 1Hn5hirk'5 Mirthhag
There are many gala-days at lVlasten Park, but ask any group of
lVlastenites what day stands out most in the whole school year, and
in chorus they will answer, "Oh, Pop's birthday!" That day has
always been one of great rejoicing, for each eleventh of ,March stands
for another year of the service and love which have characterized the
life of the great man at the head of our school. We love it because
it is the red-letter day of one whom we love and esteem, and it en-
dears him still more to us.
The alumni, too, join in paying him homage. This year, on the
eighth of lVlarch, two hundred attended a dinner given in his honor
at the Statler l-lotel. Young and old graduates were there, including
many distinguished people. The Rev. Dr. Holmes made a speech
congratulating him and naming him one'of the biggest assets of Buf-
At school, Dr. Fosdick was showered with flowers of every kind,
until his office resembled a veritable greenhouse. They poured in
from studyrooms, classes, sororities, fraternities and individuals. Con-
spicuous among these floral gifts was a basket of hyacinths from the
There was a celebration in I I2. on Wednesday morning when the
Junior boys in song, speeches, and poems told him of their love and
loyalty. They then presented him with an automobile kit and a
Kodak book. I-le received a unique bronze vase from the Junior
girls, and a Roycroft set from the lnter-Sorority Council.
On the night of the eleventh the faculty entertained Dr. Fosdick
at a party given in our new lunch-room. Twelve tables were laid,
each representing a month of the year, and appropriately decorated.
Each teacher was seated at the table which represented the month in
which her birthday occurs.
Later they withdrew to the girls' gymnasium, where they concluded
their celebration with music and stunts.
So, through the co-operation of faculty, alumni, and the student
body, Dr. Fosdick's seventy-third birthday was, indeed, made a happy
one for him and hundreds of other folks. All honor be to him! lVlay
he enjoy many more birthdays, each one happier than the last, and
continue to drink from the fountain of perpetual youth, the students of
lVlasten Park, so that he grows younger every year.
THE CHRONICLE 9

The Honor Award Committee of lVlasten Park High School, ap-
pointed in the spring of 1921, by Dr. Fosdick, has, indeed, accom-
plished its purpose in rewarding those who have excelled in the daily
routine of lessonsby successfully performing the duties assigned to
it. Even though this committee has lost its former chairman through
the absence of lVlr. Penniman, its work has been steadily advancing
under the guidance of lVlr. Coffran, who was recently appointed to
fill that vacancy.
On Class Day, 1923, the fruits of the efforts of the committee were
apparent, for bronze pins, in addition to the honor certificates, were
awarded to fifteen students, whose standings on the Star Roll 'were
'95 and over. Lack of funds prevented the presentation of silver and
gold pins to those who had attained positions on two and three Star
At this time also, special awards of handsome silver medals were
made to recognize those who had brought singular honor to lVlasten
Park in interscholastic contests along intellectual lines and similar
medals were ,presented to certain Seniors who had been neither absent
nor tardy during their high school course.
On April 16, 1924, the honor studentsonce more had the distinc-
tion of being the guests of honor on lVlasten's third Honor Day. The
athletes had always had their special days of recognition and Debate,
Music, and the countless other activities, which make high school
days memorable, had been greeted with applause, so those who had
distinguished themselves by their intellectual ability enjoyed the
honor not only of occupying the center section of the Maud", but
also of hearing their names read from the platform. Many were the
thrills when they heard their own name or those of their friends read
from the wonderful list! The speaker, Rev. lVlr. Broughton, also con-
tributed to the success of the program by his most inspiring address,
in which he made a most earnest plea for an all-round development-
"Nothing to excess," as the Greeks expressed it-and most sincerely
urged the students to seek the higher intellectual training offered at
college. Extracts from Roosevelt's "Letters to His Children" also
added the weight of influence and then "the Spires of Oxford," that
charming poem, portraying the invincible spirit of service in the ap-
parently careless college boys at Oxford during the war, echoed
through the auditorium and a program, thoroughly enjoyed by all
The afternoon school, too, was not without its Honor Day. Their
speaker, lVlr. Rich, based his theme upon the five dangers to civiliza-
tion as recently pointed out by the Pope: Excessive pleasureg Dis-
gust with hard work, Hatred: Lack of respect for authority, and
lack of interest in spiritual things. The speech provided food for
thought for both teachers and pupils.
Through the efforts of the Honor Awards Committee Masten Park
may some day succeed in establishing an honor society, not unlike the
"Phi Beta Kappa" of the colleges. MARGARET FABER,

r I he Stamina nf the Immigrant
Prize Oration in Columbia Oratorical Contest.
There are many subjects in regard to which' there exists a great
diversity of opinion. One of these is immigration. Since the begin-
ning of our national existence, people have assumed three distinct
attitudes toward the subject. There are those who oppose all immi-
gration, those who advocate the open door policy without any re-
striction, and those who believe in moderate restriction.
The last course is the one I would recommend for the following
I invite you to consider the experiences of the past as they bear
upon our immigration policy--lest we forget. The services that the
immigrant has rendered are invaluable. During the Revolutionary
war he fought shoulder to shoulder with his more Americanized
brothers, to free us from EngIand's despotic power. In the war of
1812 he fought with equal courage and fearlessness to insure the free-
dom of the seas. In the Civil war he proved his loyalty and patriot-
ism by combating that most undemocratic institution, slavery.
We point with pride to the accomplishments of our nation in the
past fifty years. The great west has been opened and settled. Who
made it possible to develop our great farm lands? Who was it that
made it possible to build the railroads which penetrate every part of
our domain, our trans-continental railroads, our canals, and all the
great public works of every imaginable variety, which have contrib-
uted so greatly to the progress, prosperity, and development of this
nation. It was the immigrant!
What induces the immigrant of today to come to this land
of opportunity? Europe and America 1 compare theml The
one, old and crafty, the other, young and virileg Europe, bur-
dened with the crime of centuriesg America, active with her
future, clear of conscience: upon one side the privileged classesg
upon the other, reward of merit. Europe, seething, raging with po-
litical strifesg America calm, dispassionate, with a government as
strong as Gibraltar. One is frantic for warg the other imperturable,
admirable in both peace and war. Upon one side, there is despairg
upon the other, hope. I-low unlike the two! Europe persecutesg
America tolerates. The one in want and misery, sunken in aflilictiong
the other in plenty, overflowing with wealth and prosperity. Could
there be any other choice than America?
What are the arguments lodged against the immigrant today?
The immigrant is poorg the immigrant adds nothing to the wealth
of the nation at the time of his arrival. It is true that he is poor:
but were those who came to this country during the past century
rich? Did they bring anything to this country except stout hearts
THE CHRONICLE Il
and willingness to work, a desire to become useful? Are the immi-
grants of today any worse than those who preceded them? They
are lgrecisely of the same character. They are of the same flesh and
The foremost exponents of the policy advocating a further ex-
clusion of the immigrant maintain that a, labor shortage exists in this
land, and that the immigrant is taking the place of the American la-
borer. It is undeniable that the foreign laborer displaces the Ameri-
can workman, but in doing so he assumes the burden of the heaviest
work unflinchingly, thereby bettering labor conditions, making wages
higher, and hours of labor shorter. Should a labor shortage exist in
this country when so much of our great southern and western lands are
yet undeveloped? IVIove the ports of entrance, establish them along
the coast near to the field of labor. These immigrants cannot go far
inland. Their money is exhausted. Is it surprising that they huddle
on the East Side, in the dark anarchy-reeking recesses of the large
cities, when our government permits them to settle in such places?
Carry them to Virginia, Carolina, Iowa and Minnesota, lands which
lead to greater opportunities and a place in the sun.
Look back with me for a-moment over that horrible period,
through which we have just passed. More men were killed, mas-
sacred and mutilated and more innocents were made to suffer in that
war, than in all the wars the world has ever witnessed. What part
did the immigrant play in that awful struggle? Coming from every
part of our country and from every class of the community, they
fought like men, and died like heroes. Nobody asked .whence they
came, they knew their duty, they knew how to obey and how to fight,
and counted not the cost. Look at our country's huge service Hag.
Read the honor roIl.' Name after name is foreigng names in blue and
names in gold. No one dares deny that the foreigners gave freely of
their flesh and blood for the preservation of those ideals of freedom
and democracy for which America. fought-ideals with which they
were hardly acquainted. Yet they sensed the American spirit and
gave their last full measure of devotion for the cause of liberty. No
one will deny that the Jew, the Pole, the Italian, the Slav is doing his
share toward the maintenance of the principles of government in the
United States. They unite with their fellow citizens in love, in venera-
tion for the flag, and are ready at all times, in common with their fel-
When a man becomes a citizen of the United States, his nation-
ality is unimportant. I"Ie brings with him such gifts as he pos-
sesses, and all of them combined, have brought about that remarkable
being, the finest the world has ever known-the composite American.
Go to all the cities of the land, visit all the states of the union, note
the men and women who have left their mark and impress upon their
communities, read the story of their accomplishments and you will
find among them immigrants, and the sons and daughters of immi-
grants, from every land and every clime. HERMAN TEIBEL,

E112 Alumni Asasnriatinn nf
One winter evening in l92l a little group of loyal Mastenites met
at the home of Miss Elizabeth Grabau to talk over a matter that each
had pondered earnestly in his heart,-the subject of a "rebirth" for
the Alumni Association of lVlasten Park I-Iigh School. There had been
an association in the old days but it had died a natural death. To
reform, reorganize, and start anew, was the task they set before them.
One thought was uppermost in every mind-one question they asked
themselves: "What can we do that will give to every graduate of
lVlasten Park an opportunity to strengthen the friendships of high
school days, to kindle anew the fires of love and loyalty to his Alma
Mater, and to express this love in concrete form through service toi
ward a common goal?" In this spirit the new Alumni Association
The little group of leaders consisted of members of the Class of
191 6. Therefore it was natural and fitting that the first meeting should
be a gathering of that class. It was most appropriate, also, that they
should gather in honor of their beloved "Pop" who, in March of that
year, was celebrating his seventieth birthday. And so, on March IZ,
I92I, at a birthday dinner, the Masten Park Alumni Association was
The first general meeting was held in June, l92l. Following the
precedent established then, there has been a June meeting each suc-
cessive year on the evening following Commencement, at which time
we take pleasure in welcoming to our ranks the class which has just
been graduated from lVlasten Park. As a token of our welcome, free
membership for one year is given to each new alumnus.
By the following June H9221 one of the biggest undertakings of
the Association was well under way-the raising of funds for the
Masten Park-Fosdick Scholarships to be established at the University
of Buffalo. Up to May of this year almost 354,000 has been con-
tributed. "S5,000 by June!" is our slogan. If we reach our goal
the first awards can be made to members of the Class of I925.
This will mean work,-work and co-operation and a spirit of
loyal service. It will require the same spirit that prompted the gen-
erous gift of the Class of 1922, that made possible the presentation of
a play which netted more than 515300 for the fund-the spirit that set
aside a portion of the proceeds from the School Concerts that the goal
we had set ourselves might be reached.
Work-co-operation-a worthy aim. These things we must have
if we are to make the Alumni Association the power that we want It
THE CHRONICLE I3
to be. l-low often, in the past three years, our "Pop" has spoken to
us on just this theme-that we, as an association, shall stand or fall
just in proportion as We devote our energies to some Worthy end, big-
ger and broader than the pleasure of social gatherings-bigger even,
than the strengthening of old friendships. We must not only come
together but work together on some definite task for our Alma Mater.
The Scholarship Fund has given us one task. When this is finished
there will be others waiting for the workers.
Class of 1924, we need you! fAnd we like to think that you need
usl. We need your "pep" and your enthusiasm to balance the staicl
and sober judgment of the "old grads." We need your arclor and your
love for Alma Mater now, before the years to come shall cool it.
Come, and let us prove to you our Welcome!
O golden beacon 'neath sky of blue,
Our steps thou'st guided, and taught us true
To live a life unstained and pure,
Have faith, achieve, love right, endure.
Tho' with regret we leave thy sight,
We'll ne'er forget thy precepts brightg
And though we part, divide our ways,
lnstilled in heart shall be thy rays.
O Mother dear, thy light shalt guide
Down life's long path. Whate'er betide
We'll honor thee, thy praises tell.
Commencement calls, We bid "Farewell"

CLASH IN THE AIR
A dire catatsrophe befell Mr. William
I. Vveinbach and Mr. G. J. Ambs early
this morning when the aeroplanes of these
gentlemen collided above the corner of
High and Dizzy streets. Air Traffic Cop
Witter reported that Weinbach was speed-
ing to the corner store to purchase a pint
of milk for his wife, when the accident
occurred. Ambs claimed that the motor
of his machine had stalled and as he was
cranking it he was hit. An excited
throng, upon viewing their swift descent
to the earth, had already gathered. The
first to arrive at the scene was Gertrude
Leininger and Clara Cloos, reporters for
CHIEF JUSTICE DONHLD SCHIVENK
This remarkable Iileenes: of the Justice
has just been completed by the artixt,
the DAILY TATTLER. Leona O'C0n-
nor and Myrtle Jagow came flying down
at their usual speed, while Anna Frank,
policewoman, strode manfully into the
thick of the fray. Dr. Benjamin Obletz
was called and with him came Nurse
Mildred Augustine. An open-shop re-
porter rushed up in the very person of
Ralph Buth. Fresh supplies of spectators
arrived among whom could be recognized
Mrs. Blanch Butt, Madame Margaret Day
and Mrs. Erna Koberstein, all dwellers in
the neighborhood. Numerous air-garage
men were seemingly magnetized to the
scene and the familiar members of the
crowd hailed john Harris, Whitney Pat-
terson and Ralph Philbrook. In the guise
of a poet seeking inspiration came Velda
Muma, while with flowing tie and a blue-
song on his lips Alvin Macklem, the mel-
oncholy musical comedy star, stood
aghast. A grind organ, turned by Ro-
land Logel approached, in the wake of
which Alice Kidder was seen doing a
gypsy dance, and the scene took on a
gala aspect. On came the horde-Har-
old Farber, driving a waffle-wagon, Del-
ford Fedderman, putting mustard on
steaming hot-dogs, and an ice-cream boy
who was none other than our own Charlie
Standart. At this moment the ambulance
came into view with Norman Glassman
at the wheel and Oliver Hosterman tense-
ly clanging the bell. Internes Harrington
Woodworth and Donald Beesing carried
VVeinbach into the car amidst the screams
of Mrs. Alma Burow, the excitable shop-
keeper, who had lost the sale of a pint of
milk, and Roy Lord, a strolling piano
tuner. Ambs declared that he was not
much injured but would sue for damages
anyway, as he had lost weight and valu-
able time from his shoe business. At this
the crowd dispersed and left Theodore
Meibohm and Jacob Benderson, lawyers
who had come seeking a job, standing in
utter silence. To add to this unusual phe-
nomenon appeared the ever punctual
Florence Anderson and Milton Bergman,
photographers for the Hourly Scream,

REUNION AT THE BUFFALO
A reunion of the class of 1928 was held
at the Buffalo Normal last evening. The
exercises were presided over by Dr. Ed-
ward C. Peck, principal of the school and
a member of the Class of '28, who has
returned, after a leave of absence of
two years at Oxford where he received
the degree of Ph.D. from Dr. Raines,
head of that institution. The arrange-
ments for the reunion were supervised by
Mrs. Mildred Dietrich, assisted by Mrs.
Marion Ewing, alumni of the school. In
honor of the arrival of the Principal, the
Misses Mehnert and Hildagard Launs-
path, teachers at the school, issued short
notice invitations to his friends and class-
mates. Everyone accepted except Sylvia
Stradtman and Louis Wollenburg, who
are teaching in far-off Japan.
To this social affair Reporter Hoefle
unwillingly strode suffering agony from
an attack by Mrs. Ruth Vogel, Mrs. Ethel
Wind and Mrs. Mildred Zangerle, due to
the fact that he described their dinner
gowns alike on a previous social occasion
given in honor of Florence Johnson, the
artist. While Miss Bernice Hobbs stood
at the gate post contemplatinguthe sunset
she was lightly tapped on the shoulder.
Her psychological mind whirled with mis-
givings, but on turning, she was relieved
to encounter the countenance of Mrs. Elea-
nor Henzler and also that of Mrs. Viola
Jungfer, two members of the class. See-
ing,no reason for further hesistancy the
trio began to promenade up the gravel
path and and as they completed an angle
of ninety degrees who should they dis-
cover but the leaders in the social world,
Mrs. Esther Burkard, Mrs. Doris Bach-
man, Mrs. Velma Eckner and Mrs. Mar-
garet Katzmayer, voluably discussing the
present social gathering. james jackson,
Principal of a grammar school, was an
additional although silent member of this
quartet. Dorothy Buddenhagen and Mil-
dred Beuerman, secretaries for the Eck-

portation, rode in state to the private en-
trance. On nearing the palation struc-
ture, soft music was discerned protruding
from the musical instruments of Louis
Love, Madame Corinne Denneny, Mrs.
Bernice Plummer and Emil Kessler, the
String Quartet of the Buffalo Symphony.
After escaping the stately presence of
Ladislaus Konowalski, the policeman, who
faithfully guarded the entrance against
unwelcome visitors, the group joined the
rest of the company in the banquet hall.

As editor and publisher of the Marion Star, ex-President Hard-

They are so characteristic of the man, so fine and noble, and so apr
plicable far beyond the sphere of journalism, that if they alone sur-
vived of all his utterances, they would suffice to secure him in the
reverent and affectionate remembrance of the American people:
"Remember there are two sides to every question. Get both.
"Get the facts. Mistakes are inevitable, but strive for accuracy.

"Boost-don't knock. There's good in everybody. Bring out

it is, not as you would like to have it.
"Treat all parties alike. If there's any politics to be played, we
will play it in our editorial columns.
"Treat all religious matters reverently.
"If it can possibly be avoided, never bring ignominy to an inno-
cent Woman or child in telling of the misdeeds or misfortunes of a

"And, above all, be clean. Never let a dirty word or suggestive
story get into type.
"I want this paper so conducted that it can go into any home
without destroying the innocence of any child."
The man who could thus envisage his responsibility in issuing
a newspaper as not merely a business or profession, but a high form
of kindly human service, could be trusted to deal with the tasks of
government in the same spirit. That in all sincerity he strove so to
do, and that from his deathbed he sent out a message of brotherhood
and kindness, of peace and good will, in the name of Christ,--for
this we cherish his memory with gratitude. "He being dead, yet

The classes in Child Care entertained on successive Fridays the kin-

is still a question as to whom enjoyed the parties most, the guests,
the hostesses or the spectators.
Have you ever visited the enormous building at the foot of

There were over l l00 containers of fruits and jellies on exhibit.

The Sophomore l-lomemaking classes assisted in the preparation,
and served at Dr. Fosdick's birthday dinner.
Did you see the dresses the Sophomore girls made for the Chil-
dren's Aid Society? There were S5 in all and each one was different.
The Children's Aid Society paid for the material, but we had the
pleasure of choosing our materials and the fun of making the dresses.

The past year has seen at Masten Park a new and enthusiastic in-
terest in debating. At the beginning of the year matters were very
discouraging, as we had lost our coach and had only two veterans as
a nucleus for our team. However, the boys and girls were undaunted
and with the true Masten spirit they worked hard and were able to
place debating among the popular activities. ln our final tryout,
there were sixteen candidates for positions on the teams.
Much credit is due lVliss Alport and Miss Lee, who coached the
teams. The support by the faculty and student body helped greatly
in bringing us through victoriously. We also owe much to Dr. Fos-
dick for his timely suggestions, which helped us in overcoming many

with great enthusiasm immediately started work.
During the year each girl participated in at least one informal
debate. A few of the questions discussed were: "The Minimum

The Radio Club, which has marked another addition to the ac-
tivities of lVlasten Park, has just finished its second successful year.
The Club, which was organized by Mr. Roberts, for the purpose
of studying radio, is open to any boy in school who is interested in
that science. The members have the use of the school's radio appara-
tus, which consists of a receiving set, a transmitting set and various
other necessary radio supplies.
On the evening of Monday, April 7, l924, Radio Night was
held under the auspices of the Seneca Vocational and Masten Park
Radio Clubs. Over seven hundred people attended. There were
lectures by noted mechanics and demonstrations of Various high-
priced sets. It proved a great success.
The Club is deeply indebted to all members of the faculty who
have helped to make the club a success.

ln the fall of l9l9, the Williams College Alumni Association of
Eulfalo decided, inasmuch as Williams College was unrecognized as a
donor of a cup, to offer a cup to be known as the Williams All-around
Championship Trophy. The Buffalo High School amassing the largest
number of points in recognized inter-school competition was to be the
recipient of this cup. Football, basketball, track and baseball were
recognized as major sports, while hockey, tennis, cross-country and
swimming were designated as minor sports. V
In the ensuing sport year of 1920-ZI, Masten went to the front by
winning the Harvard Cup and finished the year in first place. The
'Xllfilliams Committee, at a rousing assembly, presented lVIasten's first
When another year rolled around, the other schools were determined
to seize lVlasten's laurels. However, lVlasten again forged to the front
by virtue of first place in football, second in basketball, hockey and
relay. These places swelled our point total and found Masten winner
of the second Williams Cup.
When school opened in September, 1922, Lafayette was predicting
lVlasten's downfall. After our heart-breaking football loss to them
and the subsequent third place in football, their prediction seemed true.
However, the basketball and hockey teams came through in splendid
style, each capturing a first. These points with the others earned by
THEY CHRONICLE 75
the other teams evenecl up matters, and l923 found Masten Winner
of the third consecutive Williams Cup.
This miraculous and enviable record hung up by lVlasten is one that
will undoubtedly endure and one that the other schools will long fail
to equal. It is fitting that mention be made here of the men who
made their letter three consecutive times in the three years We won the
cup: Following are the names:
GEORGE BARTON, hockey.
ALLAN COLLINS, captain of track, football.
ALFRED DAHL, swimming, football..
CLEON HYDE, captain of basketball.
HAROLD KENNEDY, basketball, football.
REINHARD LOTZ, track, football.
Cl-IAS. lVlcKOWNE, hockey.
JAMES lVlcKOWNE, captain of hockey.
EDWARD PECK, captain of football, hockey, baseball.
CONRAD SCHENK, captain of football. .
FLOYD SIMPSON, captain of basketball, crosscountry, baseball, football.
GEORGE STRIKER, track football.
NORTON VEDDER, captain ofbaseball, football, hockey.
It is only right that mention be made also of the efforts of lVlr.
Heck and Mr. Seelbach, to whom much of the credit belong. Only
through their wise leadership was the feat made possible.
Masten Park hopes next year to again welcome the singing
Williams Cup Committee. At the end of next year, shall we have
in our trophy case four cups with the name of Williams and the
name of Masten?

j When the football season of 1923 opened,
'M l Coach Crawford was confronted with a serious
f 0 A' N 9, 7 problem. With but one veteran, Captain Vic-

Q HS! X ,
- f N winning team. However a little ray of sun-
,. shine appeared when Simpson joined the
'M""'N' ""'M-- squad, so that with Vickers, Simpson and
Drews, he had an excellent backfield assured.
His real work was to get a line to support that backfielcl. So that the
boys would get plenty of experience before the Cup Games, a nine-
game schedule was arranged, providing for five games before the
This year another new plan was tried. Students had been com-
plaining that they had no opportunity to Witness their team in action
before the Cup Games. So, to satisfy them, games were arranged with
Syracuse Central and Tonawanda High Schools at Buffalo.
On September 29th, at Delaware Park, the team played its first
game against a strong and almost invincible Alumni aggregation,
boasting of such stars as Fisher, lggulden and Dillingham. The game
resulted in a 20-0 loss for the 1923 team, but although a disappoint-
ment to the players, it surprised the Alumni players, who congratu-
lated our boys on the fighting spirit they showed.
The next Saturday, October 6th, at the Baseball Park, lVlasten
Park entertained the Syracuse Central team. After a very bad first
half, when the score stood 6-0 in favor of the Central New York boys,
Nlasten came out and completely outplayed Syracuse to a win, I2-6.
The following week, Tonawanda High School came to Buffalo,
and our boys accepted a 27-O defeat. Their experience was too much
for our boys, who fought gamely against heavy odds.
On October 20th, the team went to Erie and met the Erie Cen-
tral High School. Again the weakness of our team was shown as the
Pennsylvanians defeated us 39-O. This was the worst set-back Mas-
ten had received in quite a few years.
On the next Saturday we went to Rochester to meet the Fresh-
man team of the University of Rochester. The boys went out on the
field to do or die. They "did,"' and in a royal manner. The lowly
College Frosh were defeated 32-O, nearly enough to avenge the de-
feat by Erie.
Then the Cup Series started. lVlasten drew Hutch, the favorite
for the Cup in the first game on November 3rd. Hutch made up for
her defeat last year by defeating us l2-0 on a wet, slippery field, on
which our backs couldnit get started. Lafayette came next. The

boys made up their minds that Lafayette must and would be defeated
by us. But, alas, for our good intentions! Lady Luck did not perch
on our banner, but Wenii over to the enemy, so that our "friendly ene--
miesn were able to beat us 6-0 by a fluke. But that stopped the
scoring of our opponents, but sad to say, it stopped our scoring, too,
for on November 17th South Park was played to a scoreless tie, while
on Thanksgiving Day, Masten and Tech played a hard game with the
The season could not be called very successful by the games won
and lost, nor by our standing in the Series, for we were tie for fourth
place with Technical, but still it helped to develop and experience men
for next year and the 1924 team, under Captain John Scheller, should
have a very successful season. N

sports at lVlasten. When the call for candidates was issued, but four
of last year's champions responded, thus the outlook was none too
After several days of strenuous practice, the team met an all-
star alumni aggregation, receiving a slight setback, l2-l 0. One week
later, we faced Kenmore, losing I0-9, but forcing them to play two
extra five-minute periods.
g We then managed to shake off the Hjinxn long enough to win
over the State Normal team 9-4. The following evening we suffered
defeat at the hands of Niagara Falls I5-I4. On january 4tlw We 'went

inson I2-6, next South Park 24-l0, and Technical Z2-I l. We were

feat is no discredit to our team as St. ,lohn's are the State preparatory

We seemed destined to lose when out of town, for We were de-
feated 25-l7 by Acquinas Institute at Rochester. South Park was
easily outclassed 31-8, but the final game of the cup series with
Technical proved to be quite the opposite. Our boys offered stub-
born opposition, but were beaten 23-ZI.
This loss created a tie for second place between Masten and
Technical. A play-off was, therefore, necessary to determine which
team should go to the Meadville, Pa., tournament. Tech upset the
"dope-can" and beat us I8-IZ. As the team filed into the dressing
room, following the last game, one of the players exclaimed: "Well,
gang, in Victory or Defeat, Masten Park!" which truly expressed the
spirit of the team.

Although our team played brilliant hockey through-
out the year, we were nosed out for first place in a
post-season game with Nichols. The score was I-O.
We opened the season by beating our strongest op-
ponent, Nichols, 4-0. We then went down the sched-
ule unscathed, until we again played Nichols. Masten
took the small end of this game after a hard-fought
contest, I-0. This was one of the only two games lost
in the Michigan Cup race. Incidentally, Masten won every outside
game played, including Cornell Frosh, East High of Rochester, the
American Legion and the Lakewoods of Cleveland, who are consid-
cred the best public school hockey team in Ohio.
It is interesting to note that we avenged the single defeat of last
year at the hands of Lafayette, by beating them in both "Cup" games.
The climax was reached when Masten met Nichols at the Arena,
Niagara Falls, Ont. This was one of the most thrilling hockey bat-
tles ever fought between Michigan Cup contenders. The Masten
alight" was prominent during the game, especially in the last five
minutes of the second half. ln spite of the lack of practice, there be-
ing little ice, our team fought their way to second place.
Special honor is clue Capt. McKowne and his brother, Charles,
All-I-Iigh men and the gratis coaching of Ed. Peck is appreciated.

the entire season, handicapped though they were through inexperience
and the lack of a suitable pool.
The following men deserve special mention: Captain Kumpf,
"All High" utility mang Joe Gauthierg Edward Laube, second "All
High" team, and William Collins, who placed in every meet in which
he was entered. Great credit is also due Coach Rogers for his work
in developing a team from new material.
With every man back next year, the 1925 swimming team, under
the leadership of Captain-elect Collins, hopes to bring a Syracuse cup
to Masten Park.

THE CHRONICLE B7
The first appearance of the track team was at the annual Enquirer
meet held in the l06th Armory, March l l. Prospects for success were
bright as we had several veterans back and a host of promising new
candidates. We finished third in this meet which was won by Lafay-
ette. Technical was second. The following men placed in the fol-
lowing events won their letters:
Shot put-Fedderman flstf, Bergman f2ndl, and Dussing C3rdJ,
440 yards run-I-Iann C2ndJ.
One mile run-Fissler C3rdj.
Broad jump-Mason Clstj.
The relay team, composed of Captain Drews, Moody, Goodwin
and I-lann, won second place in this event.
The team was then idle until the outdoor season, which opened with
a meet with Nichols, Lafayette and Hamilton lnstitute of Toronto. ln
this meet we placed fourth, the meet being won by Hamilton. Grampp,
Bergman, Dussing, Drews, I-lann, Weller, McMullen and Moody were
our point scorers in this meet.
About a Week later the team traveled to Alfred University where
they competed against thirty-three other high and preparatory schools
in the annual Alfred lnter-scholastics. We were quite successful here,
finishing fourth, the first Buffalo school to finish near the top. ln this
meet the feature was the running of l-lann, who equalled the track
record for the 440 yards run. The relay team broke the record for
this event and brought back a handsome cup for our trophy case. The
team consisted of Drews, Moody, McMullen and Hann. Other men
to place in this meet were Drews in the l00 yards and 220 yards, and
Guyette in the Javelin throw.
The schedule called for three more meets which occurred as follows:
Nichols, Tech and l-lutch fquadangularj Nichols Fields, May l9.
Tonawanda lnterscholastics at Tonawanda, May 24.
lnterscholastics at Erie Beach, May 3l.

This year with the return of many Veterans, the lVlasten Park Cor-
nell Cup hopes have taken a decided jump. Although the team lost
its first two cup games, it intends to go through the rest of the season
without a defeat. The veterans are Kenny Hill, the stellar back-stop,
Goodwin, Alway and Fedderman, last year's outfielders, and Captain
Michael at first. The promising new men are, Fissler, all-high man
from South Park in the outfield, Macklen and Miller at second, and
Walser at short, Nesper and MacDonald performing on the mound.
With this promising array of stars the team ought to take this yearis
The Alumni defeated us I I-9 in the opener, for, although our boys
played air-tight ball the lack of experience lost the game. The second
game was lost to Nichols 4-3, although Nesper only allowed them five
hits. The next game with Hutch we lost 3-2, MacDonald allowing
them only two hits, but an error in the eighth inning lost the game.
Then Masten jumped into the win column by defeating Canisius 4-2.

back with true Masten Spirit and finished second in the Alfred run.

ln answer to the call for candidates four veterans of last year's team

a good team next season.

THE CHRONICLE 95
The first sport in which the girls participate in the fall is tennis.
Last fall a number of players entered the elimination contest, to de-
cide the school players in the interscholastic tournament at the Park
Club. The time was so short, however, before the interscholastic
tournament began, that the school tournament was not finished. The
following team had to be chosen, therefore, on its showing in the
school tournament: Ruth Berner, Verna Corcoran and Betty Bayne.
lVlasten Park did not win the cup, but it did make a fine showing,
placing third, with South Park first and our friend, the enemy, La-
fayette, second. Our hopes are high for a championship team next
year, with many promising players returning.
One hundred and thirty girls came out for basketball and fifteen
teams were organized for a tournament. Two picked teams, headed
by Captains Dorothy Preston and Esther Boetcher, were chosen to
represent the Freshman class.
About eighty girls reported for volley ball and the ten teams had
a spirited contest for the championship. The "Wizzards" and the
"Whitewashers" took the first two places.
ln September, it was announced that we would hike fifty miles.
One girl still wonders when we are going on that fifty-mile hike. We
have done better than that-sixty-five miles to date. The music
department would appreciate parts of our singing.
There will be tennis instruction for beginners this year, too, and a
Freshman tournament, if it doesn't rain too much. Last year over
a hundred girls learned the principles of the game in the gymnasium.
The Freshmen last year were proud of the one girl who was
awarded her small for winning one hundred and fifty points in
one year. This year there will be at least five awarded. They stand
for hard work, team play and good sportsmanship.
GIRLS' YELLOW TEAM
THE CHRONICLE 97
The games of this season have been played under the League. In
this the Sophs, juniors and Seniors have each been represented by
one team. Although "life is short and time is fleeting" the outcome
has been made fair, by playing two rounds of games. The heavy
hitters on the Senior team have kept the field mighty busyg the de-
termination of the Juniors has made them a match for the rest and
even though the Sophs are yet "babes in the woods" they have the
pep to keep the rest on the bounce every minute. All-'round class
spirit has been prevalent in the games and has made them as inter-
esting as they have always been.
lnterclass basketball started in October with the Sophomores,
juniors and Seniors competing. lt was nip and tuck between the
juniors and Seniors as to the champions. When the series was com-
pleted, the Juniors and Seniors were tie for first place. The games
were all close and exciting and the season was one of the most suc-
cessful in the history of girls' basketball in Masten Park.
YELLOW AN D BLUE
The yellow and blue teams were picked from the class teams. Blues
won all three games in spite of the Yellow's game fight. Miss Hall
refereed the first two games and Mrs. Lee of U. B., the final game.
The Yellows gave a party in honor of the Blues after the completion
of the series.
A Water carnival was held at Lafayette Pool, May 23rd, for the
girls. The two teams, Water Sprites and Water Nymphs, competed.
The program. included the following races:
40 yd., breastg 40 yd., backg, 60 yd., freeg 20 yd., candle, 20 yd.,
underwaterg 80 yd. relay, and swimming the back stroke and over-
arm stroke for form, Heating one minute, diving for form, plunging
for distance, and underdressing in deep water.

A young man was keeping company
with the daughter of a minister, and
was frequently at the house to tea. He
had a ba-d habit of helping himself to
food before grace. One night, in say-
ing grace, the minister varied it a little
and said: "For what We are about to
receive, let us be thankful. For what
the young man has already received,
let us be doubly thankful."

An Irishman enlisted in the cavalry.
He was given a horse and his other
equipment I:1y the sergeant in charge.
The sergeant, being of a joking nature,
gave him the meanest horse in the
stables. Pat was given his preliminary
orders by the drill-sergeant.
"You are not to mount until com-
manded," continued the sergeant.
"And you are not to dismount un-
til I teII you to," he added.
At the command to mount, the com-
pany obeyed, including Pat. Pat, how-
ever, was immediately thrown over his
horse's head, and Ian-ded heavily on
"Why didn't you wait for orders?"
questioned the sergeant, testily.
"I got my orders, sir," answered
"From where, I-Ieadquai-ters?" came
"No, sir, from I-Iindquarters, sir."

We probably wear out more hosiery than any other
thing that we wear. It is, therefore, apparent that close
scrutiny to good hosiery is necessary to careful economy.
Our experience in the wholesale hosiery business dates
from 1865, when all hosiery made by machine was im-
ported from l-lermsdorf, Germany. At the present time
the best American hosiery is superior to foreign-made
goods. We take great pleasure in recommending to all
Masten Parkers and their friends these four brands, which
We have found beyond reproach:

And silence means she will,
Or in a house where spirits tryst
And silence brings a chill.
Or then again the village square
On Sunday afternoong
It sometimes takes the place of air-
The doctor's waiting room,
And there is nothing anywhere
As silent as a Tomb.
But there is one that loudest falls,
A silence wiriely known,
That greets you when your engine
just miles and miles from home!
