WE dedicate this issue of our annual to
Frank l-l. Colilran, who in June, nineteen
hundred thirty, resigned as head ol: Fosdick-
Masten's classical department and retired
from active service as a teacher.
ln thus dedicating the book, we wish to
express our appreciation ol the man who For
so many years was the adviser ol the stall: ol
The Chronicle, then a monthly magazine.
As he guided these young men and women
in their iournalistic efforts, and as he met
hundreds oi others in his Greek and Latin
classes, he not only shared with them the
rich treasures of his mind, but also inspired
them by the nobility ol: his character.
May the light which he has kindled in
other lives now shine back to cheer him.

I93l, broughf amazemenf and aching grief.
Miss Cohen was a graduafe of Buffalo Cenfral High School, fhe
Buffalo Training School. and The Universify of Buffalo. A woman of
high professional ideals, she confinued her scholasfic fraining in
courses af Cornell Universify summer school and af Harvard Uni-
versif summer school. She furfher exfended her knowledge and
broacilened her sympafhies by exfensive fravel bofh in our own
counfry and abroad.
Her clarify of vision and versafilify of inferesf led Miss Cohen
fo assume responsibilifies in many fields of endeavor. One year she
served as Chairman of fhe Wesfern Branch of fhe English Secfion of
fhe "New York Sfafe Teachers' Associafion." For many years she
confribufed her shrewd iudgmenf foward furfhering fhe work of fhe

HE members of the faculty of FosdickfMasten Park High School are indeed
among those who pass their lamps of knowledge on to others.
The past year has noticed many changes in this worthy group who guide
the students and "light candles of understanding in their hearts which shall not be
With the beginning of the year the school suffered a loss of several of its honored
teachers who were called to service at the new Riverside high school. Those who
left were the Misses Bear, Culp, Drullard, Hoyler, Kinsley, O'Reil1y, Snell,
Curry, Mrs. Stapleton and Mr. Costello. They left with the best wishes of all for
Miss Katharine Maher, a member of the English department, and Mr. Frank
Coffran, head of the Classical department, tendered their resignations in June, 19710
and thus the new school year was begun without their valuable services.
Miss Maher served many years in the Buffalo school department, the last eleven
of which were spent at FosdickfMasten Park. Her hundreds of pupils remember her
as a faithful teacher who with kindliness and understanding was always ready to
help with any of their problems.
Mr. Coffran, who had a long and honorable record of service as a member of
the Fosdick-Masten classical language department resigned at the end of the year
1929f193O. He served faithfully and well for thirtyfthree years and it was with
sincere regret that faculty and students alike learned of his resignation.
Mr. Coffran was directly responsible for the publishing of the first "Chronicle"
and it is with a great deal of pleasure that we dedicate this 1931 issue of the.
'lChronicle" to Mr. Frank Coffran.
Only two new teachers were added to the staff this year. In September, Miss
Alice Eiss became an honored member of the English department and in February
Miss Dorothy Dinsmore joined the faculty. She, too, is a teacher of English.
Early in the second term, March 5, 1931, th-e faculty suffered a painful loss
in the accidental death of Mr. Julius Hayn, head of the mathematics department.
His passing was keenly regretted by the faculty and student body alike. Mr. Coffran,
in his tribute to Mr. Hayn appearing on the preceding pages, voices the sentiment of
On April 2, another of our beloved teachers, Miss Etta Cohen, passed on. She
leaves behind her, years of memorable service at FosdickfMasten having only two
years before her death been made head of the English department following the resig-
nation of Miss Ada Fox.
At the memorial assembly for Miss Cohen, glowing tributes to her character were
paid by Principal Hersey and oth-er friends who had been associated with her in
various ields of endeavor. Miss Fox outlined Miss Cohen's remarkable career as an
English teacher. Miss Dorothy Hill, representative of the League of Women Voters
praised her indomitable spirit and her keen sense of humor. Miss Lillias MacDonald,
Dean of Women, University of Buffalo, stressed her friend's appreciation of the beau-
tiful. Miss Mary Hahn paid her tribute by reading poems selected from Miss Cohen's
bestfloved verses among which were lines from Browning's Asolando.

Courses Offered at Fosdick-Maslzen
ANY and various are the courses offered to the aspiring freshmen who enter
the portals of FosdickfMasten. The light of knowledge is burning eternally
in the fair corridors and one has but to have initiative and willingness to
learn, in order to bask in its warm glow.
For those who intend to pursue their education further after finishing high
school, the college entrance course with rays which symbolize arts, science and
engineering, offers opportunity to prepare for entering any college or university in
the land. The beam of its light is cast most brightly upon the languages, but reveals
also opportunity for a general preparation in other essentials for those wishing to
enjoy the sun of success.
For those who are undecided whether to continue their education or to go forth
into the world at the conclusion of their high school career, the general course ray
sheds an inviting light. It provides preparation sufficient for entering college or any
walk of life with the utmost confidence. The broad rays of this curriculum shed
light on specialized courses known as general language, general mathematics, general.
history and general normal.
One of the most popular rays is that cast by the commercial course. More
students of FosdickfMasten follow the light shed on this path to knowledge than that
shed on any other. Its beam seeks out the most intriguing lines of business endeavor
and leads to full preparation for the embryo business man or woman.
Another guiding light is that course offered by the homemaking division. For
many who follow this ray of learning, a general knowledge of the making of a happy
home is the essential feature. Others, after benehting by the course, go on into
other lines of accomplishment well prepared.
For those whose talents run to the artistic, the beam of the art course sheds its
entrancing light. The art curriculum embodies history and appreciation of the
beautiful as well as actual practice in the many types of drawing.
Those people who are musically inclined are enabled to pursue this line of
endeavor through the various rays offered in the music course.
In connection with all these courses, the physical department offers chance for
physical development to every boy and girl.
Each pupil is required to take two periods of physical training a week. At these
classes they go through various calisthenics or apparatus work, and this regular class
work is followed by some game. In the spring the entire period is devoted to indoor
and outdoor baseball and other outdoor work, This is true during the winter, at
which time the chief sport is basketball.
These are the many beams which shower their welcome light upon the fortunate
freshman who enters upon the threshold of knowledge and guide him that he may
evade the rocks of the sea of ignorance.

William Stright, Jacob Goldstein and Ralph Henrich. At the same time Football
occupied the interest of Kenneth Smith, William Quinlan, Albert Balleria, Chester
Conklin, Nelson Fischer, Thomas Mesi, Peter Davisi, Max Utcovitz. Wintry winds

Nelson Welaiid. All of these athletes were m-embers of the class of 1932.
So as the junior beacon cast its rays in a wide are across the skies of 1930-31, it
wrote a record which foretold another brilliant senior class for 1932.
The Sophomore Class
By Sylvia Singer
HE spotlight is now turned on an important member of the school, the sophomore
class. From the time of its entrance in 1929 until it leaves, this group will
undoubtedly continue to play a great part in Masten affairs for its members
are now taking active part in every phase of scholastic activity: scholarship, athletics,
dramatics and music.
Names of forty sophomores appeared on the first term honor roll, Roy Seibel
being the highest sophomore. Others were: Marion Blake, Arthur Messer, Ruth
L. Dozoretz, Margaret E. Cormack, Joel Fried, Magdalene Hess, Sadie Weinstein,
Helen M. McColl, Robert A. Collins, Marion E. Troidl, Margaret McClure, Ruth
V. McPherson, Ruth Reisig, Emanuel Duke, Edward J. Koepf, Frederick V. Holz,
Ruth E. Hoyler, Carmela G. Piehler, Violet E. Reukauf, Eugene McCormick,
Kathryn Stoesser, John Adema, Eleanor Czech, Frank L. Halburd, Eunice T. Lent,
James H. O'Connor, John A. Haller, Mathilda Schw-egler, Constance W. Bergfeld,
M. Louise Reime, Bernice I. Kaz, Donald Champaigne, Victor L. Craiden, Kathryn
Herbold, Bernice I. Nachtrieb, Zelmar Quarles, Harry Rausch, Lillian Shapiro,
The following members skilled with the pencil and brush have taken up art:
Margaret Fisher, Flora Bartlett, Clara Mae Schurr, Harold Vogt, Margaret Cormack,

B. Green, Robert W. Tedesco, Dorothy P. Backman, Jeanette O. Wojtowicz, Dorothy
J. McDonald, Cecil W. Parker, John A. Herczeg, Howard G. Miller, Anna Golden

Music has interested many others of the talented pupils. Evelyn Wright, Janet
Ingalsbe, Marion Loveless, Edward Wujeicki, Walter Steppan, Martha McNamee,
Billy Yates, Herbert Hilts, Abraham Japlan, Roy Seibel, Royal Fox and Frank Fuchs
were members of the orchestra.
When a delightful student recital sponsored by Miss Stengel was given in the
assembly the sophomores who participated were: Robert Schmidt, Ruth Schlenker,
Elaine Polisner, Edwin Frank and Eugene Lewis.
Dramatics lured many sophomores into taking it. Under Miss O'Meara's
guidance, John Dauer, Marion Loveless, Charlotte Glaser, Edmond Wujeicki, Donald
Champaigne and Harry Seeberg found the course both interesting and educational.
Milton Lawanclus and Frederick Holz were members of the debate team.
The sophomores had in their midst a very interesting set of twins, namely,
Joseph Napoleon Fournier and Jean Noel Fournier. They are very "twinny" but
for a few minor differences. Joseph wears glasses and parts his hair on the right
while Jean, exactly the opposite, wears no glasses and parts his hair on the left.

the true FosdickfMasten spirit.
The Freshman Class
By lkiildved Klumpp
HE very youngest members of the school have been exceedingly ambitious during
the year 19304931 and have won recognition in every activity open to them.
Honors for a scholastic standing of ninety per cent or over were given
the first term to twentyfiive freshmen. They were, in order of their standing: Betty
G. Shear, Rita R. Dietz, Adele Kirschenbaum, Amelta M. Klein, Evelyn I. Jackle,

Kokoszka, Dorothy C. Denne, Edwin M. Heary, Lillian M. Gruener, Martin J.
Pleuthner, Frank Scaruto, Jam-es J. Eberl, Kenneth A. Fowler, john M. Gagern,
Evelyn G. Martin, Catherine T. Weber. Freshmen have participated in many sports.
Very early in the school year, the following freshman girls had delightful hikes:
Marion Batt, Ethel Maston, Frances Seneca, Vivian Seneca and Monona Roan.
Basketball however, was the most popular sport for the first year pupils. The
girls played the sophomore girls' teams and the boys had interfstudyroom games.
The following girls took part in this sport: Irene Brummitt, Mary Cudcek, jean
Ferguson, Frances Flintjer, Dorothy Fox, Ruth Garfinkel, Goldie Grossman, Mildred

Smith, N. Solodsky and Arthur Wyckoff. The freshmen boys in study room 301
won the championship in the 100fpound class.
Many other sports had first year participants. Captainball interested Herma
Bakeman and Yoette Keelan.
Edwin Meyer and Clarence Rapp took part in hockey.
Despite the fact that it was necessary for the girls to go to East High School for
swimming, many girls have enjoyed this sport. These girls were: Irene Brummitt,
Mary Cudcek, Ruth Habitzruther, Mary Norton and Lillian Saffron. Isaac Isenberg,
Howard Johnson, joseph Kileman, Isaac Meadows, Frank Fuzzolino and Forest Turner
were interested in track. Members of the class were also interested in music, debate

Boyer, john Gagern, Alfred LeCocq, Joseph Makik, jacob Plaskin, Otto Retter,
Frank Scaruto, Frederic Siemer, Alvin Small, Loren Spedding, Israel Silverman,
Edward Wagner, Gordon Willert and C. Lawrence Wilson.
Roswell Goerbing and Steven Knapik promise to be future orators and are
training for it in the debate classes.
The Columbus Day play had in its cast a freshman girl, Adele Kirschenbaum
and the Thanksgiving play had Israel Silverman in its cast.
Thus, by participation in every phase of school life, the class of 1934 has shown
itself worthy to carry on the traditions of the school.
By Alice Clapp
HE timefhonored rays of the light of knowledge have cast their beams upon
many of FosdickfMasten's students in the past year. We cite here the honors
awarded to both the graduates of the class of 1930 and to the shininglights of
the 19304931 terms.
In june 1930, Beatrice C. Massman was the recipient of the Pauline Ellis schol-
arship, which was established in 1921, in memory of Pauline Ellis, a faculty member.
The fund was established by her friends, the proceeds of which are given to a girl
each year, toward a scholarship in whatever college she selects.
The Alumni of FosdickfMasten awards scholarships each year to two seniors, to
the University of Buffalo. In 1930, Elmer C. Daucher and Jane K. Winter won
The ideals of scholarship, achievement and leadership are the basis of the pre'
sentation of the Alumni of Dartmouth College award. All senior boys who have
been regularly enrolled for at least two years, are eligible. The senior boys nominate
five of their number for consideration, from whose number Mr. Hersey, with the aid
of designated faculty members, selects the winner. On Class Day in 1930, Edward
E. Heeb, having been selected as the senior most nearly possessing the above traits,
was presented with the award.
The distinguishing rays of the light of knowledge, extend also to those who have
been outstanding in music, art and forensics. The Chromatic Club awards a season
ticket to the Chromatic Club concerts to the most distinguished participant in music.
Ralph Weegar received the award in June, 1930. The Albright Art School scholarship
was given to the talented Beatrice A. Parker. The Pi Kappa Lambda fraternity of
Fosdick-Masten gives a reward each year to the most outstanding boy in public
speaking and debate. Last year the judges were unable to decide between Richard
P. Meibohm and Geordie j. Wiley, so they shared the award.
Those v'ho receive an average of ninety or above in academic subjects for a term,
are listed on the Honor Roll. The Honor Roll pupils for the first term are also
listed on the Star Roll for the year, if they maintain an average of ninety or above the
second term. These pupils are given certificates of honor at the end of the year.
Those whose names are on the Star Roll for the first time with an average of ninety-
five percent or more are awarded bronze pins. The second time, a silver pin is given,
and the third time, a gold pin. In 1930, bronze pins were given to Roy Seibel, joseph
Malnikof and Helen Majewska, for maintaining an average of ninetyffive per cent or
more. Silver pins were received by Martha Oberst and Eleanor Oyer. The complete
Honor Rolls for january, 1931, and the Star Roll for 1930, are given below.
The seniors who stand first and second in scholarship at the -end of the fourfyear
course, are awarded the gold and silver Jesse Ketchum medals, respectively. Beatrice
C. Massman receiv-ed the gold medal, and Edward E. Heeb the silver medal, in
Perfect attendance for the fourfyear course is rewarded with silver pins. Eleven
seniors won a pin last June: Beatrice Becker, Helen Brylinska, joseph Czerwonka,
Carlton Greene, Genevieve Kurczewska, Martha Oberst, Marion Rodenbach, Ralph
Weegar, Charles Hausladen, Aileen Schmelz, and Marion Seibel.

SEARCI-iflight, traveling through the sky and striking the music department
of Fosdickflvlasten Park high school, picks out many interesting colorful fields
of activity there.
A flash of light brings to us the school orchestra, the membership of which
includes many of the younger students. It is a large group and boasts of a full brass
choir. Many of the new members of the orchestra gained experience through grade
school orchestras and instruction in the Saturday morning instrumental classes. In
preparation for next year, students are now working on the double bass, cello, drums,
trombone and other instruments. Students both in the music course and other courses
study music with private instruction for credit in school. The orchestra has also
provided entertainment in the assemblies and evening programs.
lxlembers of the orchestra who are not included in the picture are: Royal Fox,
Frank Fuchs, lsadore Scher, Ri-hcrt Schmidt, Edmond Wujcicki.
ORCHESTRA QSECOND GROUPJ
Seated, first row: William Baldwin, Emil Jung. Sadie Kirschenbaum, Howard Mayer, Leonard Kolher.
Second row: Abraham Kaplan, Irving Sanes, Rose Seitz. Roy Seibel. Third row: Dwight Seely,
Herbert Hilts, Miss Stenirel. Woodrow Collins, Metro Homenda.
A curious shaft of light will fall on our special chorus of thirty. An entrance
examination and previous chorus training is required in order to become eligible to
this group. It is also necessary to have the ability to maintain a given part against
other voices. Singing a Capella fvvithout accompanimentj is the goal of this group.
This is done so that all parts may be heard equally well. The special chorus has
learned many delightful songs of musicfmasters both old and new, and has shown its
ability in musical interpretation of them in a few assembly programs. The success
of this chorus has been very evident.
Still another ray will discover another singing group. This new venture is a
class of individual instruction in singing. Here the class studies songs. Each student
is given the opportunity to sing alone and constructive suggestions are made to help
overcome the weak points. Interpretation, phrasing, mood, style are studied thor-
oughly. Tone, clearness of words in singing, effectiveness in getting the meaning
across to the audience, are all thoughtfully developed. This class, which assemlwles
twice a week, consists of thirtyflive pupils, and is the largest of any Butlalo high
And now the light is cast upon two other activities which interest the music
students of the school on the hill.

It reveals the band, splendid in their array of blue and yellow uniforms, and
shining brass instruments, making their debut on the football field. Their martial
music has been a great source of pleasure in various assemblies. The band of thirty'
five members rehearsed twice a week under the expert direction of Mr. Norman
A strong beam reachcs clear into May and lights up the stage all set for our
operetta, "The Bells of Capistrano," by Charles Wakeheld Cadman. The interesting
libretto tells of the Indian curse on the ranch, owned by Ramon Ortego and his sisters.
The Indians believe they have been wrongfully deprived of their land. The curse
will be lifted if the Ivlission Bells ring, llWhC1l the full moon shines her golden face
above the hills." All this is accomplished through the visit of an eastern scientist, a
former friend of the family, plus the efforts of Noneeta and Lone Eagle.

As I look back over my fours years in the music course I sec a faint gleaming
light significant of my start in the study of music. The light broadens and brightens as
I learn the rudiments of music, experiment in harmony I and II and make new and
delightful discoveries in history of music, until it has become a shining beacon of light
to guide me and the others who may be led by it.
LINES FROM A FAVORITE SONG
Where thy white walls on high arisc,
Masten Park, my Masten Park.
Where thy dear halls so fair and bright,
Reflect the radiant morning light:
Reared high against the western skies, Clad in thy beauty and thy might,
Masten Park, my Masten Park. Masten Park, my Masten Park.

ONITORS are students who volunteer to help in the office during their
vacant hours. Anyone may be a monitor-freshman to senior.
A monitor does general office work. The duty that presents the greatest responsif
bility, however, is that of answering the telephone. Accuracy is very essential here,
in delivering correct messages to teachers and students. Operation of the switchboard
is taught because it is often necessary to communicate with teachers in their rooms
for various reasons. Students acting as monitors must be alert with information, as
questions must often be answered over the telephone.
Another responsible duty of the monitors is ringing the warning bells. Vxfarning
bells are rung in various rooms three minutes before the close of each hour. These
bells give teachers and stud-ents time to collect materials or to replace supplies before
the final bell rings. During the fourth and fifth lunch hours, bells are rung in special
rooms as signals for the beginning of the lunch hours.
Ivlonitors sort the mail twice daily, distribute notices and supplies to the different
studyrooms and classrooms, and do a small amount of filing.
ln many ways monitors are a great help to the entire ofliceforce.

EBATE is a forensic activity which develops, in all who participate therein,
initiative, resourcefulness, and the power of argument. The miseonstrued
opinion that debate is for the few should be corrected. All members of the
Classes at FosdickfMasten at various times take part in informal discussions aside from
the usual interfhigh debates. All strive by continual practice to develop their ability
in speech writing and presentation.
This year the annual fall and spring interfhigh debate contests brought forth
interesting competition. The subject for debate in the fall series was, "Resolved,
That Chain Stores are contrary to the best interests of the American people." The
affirmative team debated Technical at Masten and the negative team met East High
at East. Both debates resulted in victories for the opposing team. However, the
Masten teams gave a good account of themselves.
The evening debate in the second term was on the subject, "Resolved, That
New York State adopt a system of unemployment insurance." Hutchinson met the
affirmative team at Masten and the negative team went to Lafayette. Once more
both debates were lost to the opposing teams but only after stern struggles.
The members of this year's debating teams were: Frederick Holz, Milton Lawanf
dus, George Morgan, Irving Raphael, Daniel Steinwald and Willi.am Stright. Those
who acted as alternates were Frank Davey, Thomas Maurin and Alban Wreii.

No little amount of credit for the success of all these presentations is due to
the director, Miss Julia O'Meara. Her zealous spirit made the productions of 1930f
1931 outstanding both in number and in quality.
This year the floodlights of Masten have been focused upon a special feature,
the writing .and producing of original plays. Students -engaged in this work have
distinguished themselves by producing fine, promising plays in contrast to the usual
amateur products of mere dialogue.
Joseph Hoffman wrote, "A Scene in the Cabin of Columbus," which was pref
sented on Columbus day. He was also the author of the Washington day play,
"Washington's Attempt to Kidnap Arnold." Jessie McCall wrote a family scene
entitled, "On the Eve of Columbus Day." Ethel Kreppel wrote the Thanksgiving
day production which was ia onefact play entitled, "Gloria's Thanksgiving." A
parody on the Portia and Nerissa scene from Shakespeare's "Merchant of Venice"
presented in cl.ass was also written by Ethel Kreppel. ,P .

OSDICK-MASTEN'S 1930 football squad had its spring training about a week
before school opened in September. When Coach Frank Abbey appeared he
was greeted by the smiling faces of many he thought would not be back, namely
Norman Sultanik, Stephen Gehl and Howard Minich. Captain Harold Zernentsch
aided the coach the first week in getting the boys familiar with the "pig skin" and
also in getting some of the veterans in good condition.
When the first ofiicial football meeting was called, prospects for a winning team
were very bright. In addition to nine lettermen there were very many likely'looking
candidates and also several squad men from the team of '29. After almost a month
of extensive practice the wearers of the yellow and blue jerseys were ready to lick
On Cctober 4 the team played its first cup game with Technical. Established as
favorites, the Masten players started impressively by handing the Red warriors a
19fO defeat. In this game, William Tuttle scored two touchdowns and Zernentsch
scored one. Tuttle also kicked a pointfafterfdown from placement.
Instead of playing Lafayette on Thanksgiving Day, Masteii was scheduled to
play this friendly -enemy on October 11. Before the start of the game there was
an air of confidence present in the Masten camp. Even the most ardent Violet
supporter did not expect anything but a crushing defeat at our hands. Immediately
after the game started, Masten proceeded easily to score a touchdown. Bill Tuttle,
chunky fullback, scored for the third successive year against Lafayette by crashing
over the goal line. Everything looked rosy until Lafayette came back with a rush
only made possible by a fighting spirit. Kirstetter skirted right end for seven yards
and scored a touchdown, knotting the score. They added two more points when
Zernentsch was tackled behind his own goal line. In the last quarter Lafayette scored
two more touchdowns, completing the rout. The final score was 21f6.
In the next game, just as the spirits and hopes of its followers were at their lowest
ebb, FosdickfMasten's powerful team uncovered all its vaunted offensive power to
overcome a 12fpoint lead and register a 2043 victory over a fighting East High
aggregation. Captain Zernentsch scored a touchdown while Bill Tuttle added two
more to his credit.
An eighty-yard run by Red Eiss featured Masten's 19-0 victory over Hutchinson.
Tuttle and Utcovitz also scored a touchdown.
Following this the team went down to Erie to play Erie Academy and were
overwhelmed by a score of 42fO.
Masten registered its fourth victory by defeating Canisius Preps, 21f0. Zernentsch
scored twice and Tuttle once.
On November 15, the eleven was nosed out by Bennett in a sensational game in
the last quarter, 7f6. The captain scored the touchdown in this game but it was not
On Thanksgiving Day Masten came from behind to earn a tie with South
Park when Bill Tuttle crashed over for a touchdown. It followed a brilliant march
down the field and made possible a 6'6 tie.
Bill Tuttle led all the individual scorers and was elected captain of the 1931 team.

LTHOUGH golf is now a recognized sport, it is still too recent to expect a large
number of candidates to come out for it.
Through the efforts of Ganson Depew, President of the National Golf
Association, a trophy has been offered for competition in this sport. It was inaugurated
in 1929 and is called the Ganson Depew Award.
Each team consists of eight players. The total number of strokes of the four
lowest players form their school score.
The four lowest for Masten were Captain Edward MacKenzie, Richard Fuller,
Sam Rovillo and Williani Everding. These four and Manager James McClure
received major letters. The remaining candidates: Donald Green, Paul Thomas,
Alfred Wiiid, John Fekete, Harvey Busch, Howard Lampker, Kenneth Roth and
William Eichorn received squad letters. Edward MacKenzie was re-elected captain.
The winner of the Depcw Cup is decided in one meet. This ye:1r's meet was
held at the Meadow Brook Country Club course. This is one of the hardest courses
in the state and the Fosdick team was unfamiliar with it. This resulted in a poor
showing, our team coming in last with a total number of strokes of 324.
The 1930 meet was won by Bennett, thus repeating their victory of 1929.

NOTHER championship team was organized this year hy Coach Allie Seelbach.
Marshall Stoll, Frederick Vogl, Thomas Green, Robert Braun and Edward
Johnston, members of last year's team, were the nucleus for another great
team. The alumni game was the first game to be played this season. After a hard'
fought game, the alumni team, which consisted of former Masteii Stars such as
Zernentseh, Goodwin, Hoover, Joyce, Westiiightiuse and Gevertzman, handed the
varsity a 2721 defeat.
In spite of this poor beginning, the Hilltoppers stepped out in the next game and
defeated a snappy, hardfplaying Riverside team to the tune of 3342. The second
game of the season, like the first, was played on Masten's own court. Captain Stoll
showed some splendid work and with the help of his eleven points the Hilltoppers
defeated South Park hy the score 3247.
On the only trip of the season, the yellow and hlue was defeated hy the Rochester
Business Institute. The score of this game was 2547.
Undaunted hy a defeat, Allies hoys went down to Tech and there the White
and Marooii fell before the onslaught of a hardffighting team in blue and yellow,
36f17. Still going strong, Masten downed the Orientals. Stoll acquired twentyftwo
of the 48 points and Bleb of East scored seven of East's 19.

Following these victories, our "Heroes" went to Hutch and again won a hard
victory by the score of 2243. In the next game Bennett was defeated by Masten
again by the huge score of 43-20.
This year unlike other years, the Yellow and Blue played the first game with the
Violet on the Yellow's court. At the end of the first half Lafayette was leading
th-e Hilltoppers by 3 points, 1Of7. As usual the Mastenites came back with such
a rush that Lafayette did not score a field goal in the second half and as a result Masten
The team started the second round in good order by defeating Riverside and
South Park by scores of 2348 and 26f21 respectively.
Whexi the Maroon team visited Masten they were sent home with a defeat, 3548.
In the following game at East the Hilltoppers were given hard battle by a scrappy,
wellftrained team but it is pretty hard to beat one of Allie Seelbach's teams. As a
result of this game, Masten chalked up another victory, 4347.
Hutch received a 52f9 setback at the hands of the Yellow and Blue. Green and
Vogl showed some of their stuff in this game and their 15 points added greatly to
thc high score. Bennett again fell before the 33 points which were run up by
The game of the season was played on Lafayette's court with Masten leading by
one game. After a hard-fought half the score ended with a 9fpoint tie but a change
to the traditional Yellow jerseys brought the team to a victory that was wellfdeserved.
The final score was 2348 and of course Masten had won the cup.
This was the fourth successive year that the Masten team has brought the Yale
cup to its school. Last year's record of eleven wins and one loss was broken when
the 193Of31 quintet hung up a perfect record of fourteen wins. Stoll, Vogl, and
Johnston were AllfHigh choice this year and all deserved this honor. Green and
Johnston were elected cofcaptains of the 1931-32 team.
Inter-Study Room Basketball
FTER a lapse of one year, interfstudy room basketball came into its own again
this year. Three leagues were formed, and cups were presented to the victori-
ous study rooms by Edebta Literary Society. The dominating factor in every
game was the intense rivalry exhibited between the opposing teams.
In the one hundred pound league, which was composed of lowerclass study rooms,
many hardffought games were recorded. The midget team from 301 was returned
victorious and crowned champion.
' Play in the one hundred twentyffive pound league was fast and furious. One
of the hardestffought tilts was the encounter between 309 and 104. The league
leadership was at stak-e in this game. After a contest packed with thrills, the freshmen
study room defeated the mighty seniors and ultimately won the trophy in their
The games played in the unlimited class found the upperclassmen qiute superior.
The lower rooms were greatly handicapped by lack of weight and it was left to 112
and 104 to battle for the title. As a premliminary to one of the varsity games, the
boys of Senior Study Room 104 managed to nose out the juniors by the score of
1947, but only after a game that saw the lead change hands many times.

HE 1950 hill and dale team, coached as usual by Alfred Seelbach, was the
irst Masten team to score points toward the Williams' Cup with a contribution
of seven points.
The system of holding meets of diiferent schools preceding the Columbia Run
inaugurated in 1930 was continued this year. Each of these meets was contested over
the usual course in Delaware Park where the final meet has always been held.
The boys wearing the yellow and blue won the first local preliminary meet with
the low score of 20. fCaptain Frank Davey and Herbert Mols led the team in
defeating the harriers from Lafayette, who totaled 42 points, and the South Park
runners, who scored 114 pointsj
The second preliminary run with East High School was one of the closest races
in many years. The Orientals were victorious by the score of 27 to 29.
Minus four veterans, the team, led by Captainfelect Endres, next defeated the
team from the new high school, Riverside, by another close score, 28 to 29. As a
iinal warmfup before the final meet, Fosdick's team defeated Bennett by the score of
24 to 36.
Entering the Columbia run as a dark horse, the team finished in secod place with
49 points after a complete reversal of form of two of the veterans.

UE to the uncertain weather this year the hockey teams of the Buffalo high
schools were unable to complete their schedule. However, the Michigan Cup
was awarded to East High with Masten and Bennett tied for fourth place.
After defeating East High in a practice game, the Masten boys could gain no
better than a scoreless tie when the cup game was played. This game was very
slow because of soft ice.
The following game was played with Technical. Showing a big league brand
of hockey, our team outplayed the redfshirted puck chasers and defeated them, 3f0.
Captain Thomas, Eichorn and Bill Quinlan scored the goals.
In the third game of the year with Lafayette, the Hilltoppers rallied after trailing,
2f0, at the end of the first period. However, the Violet final1y edged out a 3-2
triumph. Thomas again scored while Tuttle also scored. Arno Meyer played a
bangfup game in the nets.
Hard luck followed the boys in the Bennett encounter. After securing a one
goal lead through the efforts of Tank and Thomas, they were forced to relinquish
a wellfdeserved victory after a bitterlyffought battle. The score was Zfl, a goal
caroming off a Masten man's knee deciding the contest.
For the first time since the all-high stadium was dedicated, hockey games were
played there this year.

LOWLY but surely, the Masten mermen are beginning to give swimmers from
other high schools real competition. This year the hoys succeeded in earning
four points towards the Williams Cup.
Even though training started later than usual, the hoys readily buckled down to
the steady grind. CofCaptains Clifford Gehring and jack Brogan formed the nucleus
for this year's team. At the heginning of the second term Brogan decided to go to
Lafayette and with the ineligibility of Sid Cohen, star breastfstroker, the team was
greatly weakened. This only forced the swimmers to work harder, hut they were
not found wanting.
The team lost meets to Lafayette, 59-10, Hutchinson 54-16, Technical 4821,
and Bennett 45f2'l but succeeded in downing East 3643 and Riverside 3563. Canisius
was also defeated. In the allfhigh meet Captain Gehring won two points.
The school is grateful to Hutchinson high school for its generosity in allowing
the swimmers to use their pool. jack Warreii coached the team this year and it is
hoped that his services may he retained next year.
Clifford Gehring was refelected captain and the students wish him good fortune,
hoping that his team will climb another rung towards the goal, a swimming cup.

N ADDITION to the required work in the school gymnasium, the girls have
this year again been offered further opportunity for physical development through
swimming, hiking, archery and practice on the teams in basketball, volleyball,
baseball and tennis.
The swimmers used the pool at East high for their weekly swim under the superf
vision of Miss Frances Hall. Six of them, namely, Marie Reynolds, jean Schumaker,
Patricia O'Conner, Stephania Thomas and Elvira Radle obtained fifty points towards
their letter for sixteen swims.
In the fall and spring the hikers banded together on Saturdays for a tive or
ten mile hike to Williamsville, Erie Beach or other interesting places. They not only
enjoyed a walk in the open but also added points toward the coveted school letter.
Some of the most enthusiastic hiking fans this year were Josephine Karney, Gladys
Shultz, Jessie McClure, Marjorie May, and Elva Krueger.
Archery, a comparatively new sport, has proved to be very popular among the
Masten maidens. Before and after school the enthusiasts "aim for the bull's eye."
The girls do not enter into competition with teams from other high schools
except in tennis. Much interest in sports, however, is aroused through the interclass
contests in basketball, volleyball and baseball.

GAIN this year basketball proved irresistible to the girls and they responded
to the clarion call in large numbers. Teams were formed from the freshmen,
sophomore, junior and senior girls. Tournaments were then played to decide
the superior teams.
Especially bitter contests were waged between the junior and senior girls because,
from them were to be selected applicants for the coveted places on the Yellow and
Miss Kreig coached the Yellow team and Miss Hall the Blue. The teams played
three games to decide the championship, in the girls' gymnasium after school, it being
bedecked in yellow and blue crepe paper, The Blues emerged victorious and were
treated to a delicious spread by the vanquished.
