THE SENIOR CLASS OF 1943
GARDEN CITY HIGH SCHOOL
GARDEN CITY, NEW YORK
Editor: BARBARA GORMLEY Assistant Editor: RICHARD DETURK
Faculty Advisor: IOHN E. WARRINER
The Class of 1943 proudly dedicates its yearbook to-
A man who has been one of the most pleasant
associates of our high school years,' who has served
not only as a competent and interesting teacher,
but as a loyal, understanding friend -
MR. WINFIELD S. THOMPSON
'ML .1204 af fl. Pali. . . ww! fl. jufure
The first crowded days of Iune . . . loafing in the sun on
the front steps . . . hurried cramming for exams . . . and finally
- graduation. Everything came so quickly that there was little
time for reminiscing. But all of us felt, in these last warm days,
a nostalgia quite distinct from our habitual spring fever. Perhaps
we will forget the sentence structure, the theorems, the speed
tests and quizzes. But long after these have faded into the
past, we will remember the thrill of the first touchdown on a
crisp Saturday in the fall . . . joking with our favorite teachers
. . . that sinking feeling before exams . . . the satisfaction of
having done all our homework just once . . . and leaving school
on the last day, with the green lawn shadowed by the elms, and
the white columns shining in the sun.
We are more than a little sad as we look over the past four
years - and we are proud, too. Sad, because we are leaving
behind us old friends and pleasant times - and proud because
we feel that we are prepared to serve our home, our community
and our country in order to help in the fight for a free, civilized
The war became an important part of our school and home
life this year. Some of our classmates left in Ianuary to join
the armed forces or to benefit by an extra year of college. War
stamps and bond drives became a daily reminder that we must
sacrifice to win. We hopefully started and proudly concluded
our bomber drive, and saw several jeeps roll off the assembly
line as a result of our efforts. Early spring brought victory gar-
dens, a successful Red Cross Drive, air raid alerts: and in the
afternoons after school, we could hear the sharp commands of
the Student Training Corps. Pre-flight classes and war courses
were added to our curriculum. A Student War Board worked
to coordinate the war effort of the school. And this small but
important war effort has been a foundation for a greater under-
standing of our responsibility to our country in this unprece-
So it is with pride, with assurance and with faith in what
the future will bring that we graduate in this year of 1943. We
are proud of our school: and in this crisis, when the future of
our country rests in our hands, we will endeavor to make our
school equally proud of us.
TO THE GRADUATING CLASS:
lust twelve years ago you entered the first grade of the Public School Sys-
tem. Little did you think at that time of the program which you were to follow
until your graduation from High School. I too, twelve years ago, entered upon
my first year in Garden City: and little did I dream that you and I would be, as
it were, graduating this Iune of 1943.
Much has happened during this period, and you can now look back over
the long stretch and measure your own growth and development. You are now
ready to enter college, business, or the services of the United States govern-
ment. You take with you the pattern of training which this school and its
teachers have so faithfully endeavored to establish for you. Into the weaving
of this pattern have gone high ideals, high scholarship, a broad individual
program, an appreciation of the better things of life, a thoughtfulness for the
other fellow, a desire for service, a recognition of good citizenship, and a desire
to achieve. '
Your teachers and I have worked to make these qualities part of you
and your every-day living. You go forth into adult life where you will be
judged by a very critical world. It will ask you three questions: How well are
you prepared? What can you do? And, more particularly: Are you a person
of high character? If you endeavor to give to the world the best which your
teachers have tried to develop in you, you will have no fears. The world will
welcomegyou with open arms.
But as you go to meet what lies ahead, you do not go alone. You will
carry with you the good wishes and hopes of all your teachers: and I, in a way,
will march along with you. You will have my help whenever needed, my
advice and best council, my guidance and direction: and we both, you the
Class of 1943 and I, its Principal, leave behind us for each succeeding class, a
school dedicated to the highest ideals of young manhood and young woman-
hood. Let those who follow us continue to build with the plumb of honor, the
level of truth, and the square of integrity, courtesy and high scholarship.
Mr. Coulbourn, who has been principal of Garden City High
School for twelve years, is leaving this year for an executive posi-
tion in a business firm in New York. We, the Class ot 1943, thank
Mr. Coulbourn for all he has done to make our school an outstanding
educational institution: and for all the help and guidance he has
given us throughout our high school career. We wish him success
and happiness in his new position, and we express the hope that
in future years, we will not lose contact with "I . C." who has indeed
been our guardian angel.
TO THE GRADUATING CLASS OF 1943:
Perhaps a class has never graduated from
our high school which so deserved congratu-
lations and best wishes for the future. In finish-
ing up your work this year, you have been con-
fronted by untold difficulties caused by frequent
changes in teaching personnel, withdrawals
from your ranks, and tasks imposed upon you
in carrying out the war effort of the school.
Many of you will go into the service of your
country, some will go on with their education,
and others will go into business. You have been
well prepared and trained to face crises with
calm and judgment. You will justify the faith
and confidence placed in you by the school
and community of Garden City. Carry on!
FRANK R. WASSING.
Superintendent of Schools.
Miss Margaret Crane, who for several years
has served in the capacity of adviser and
teacher, left on May 15 to take an executive
position in Washington. We have long appre-
ciated Miss Crane's enthusiasm and congeni-
ality, and her helpful advice: and we hope that
she will be as successful and as well-liked in
her new position as she has been in our school.

Well, back to the old grind we came, on Sep-
tember 8th, with lingering memories of a few
gas-rationed jaunts to the beach and a char-
acteristic reluctance to do any work. When the
excitement of greeting old friends and covering
dog-eared texts Cwhich we were handed the
very first dayj had died down, we began to
notice that there had been some changes made.
New faculty members - replacing their col-
leagues who had left for the armed forces -
beamed at us from newly-polished desks. And
our beloved Senior Room echoed, not the in-
cessant buzz of idle Seniors, but debates on
"Government Control of Free Enterprise" and
"The Future of Aviation" in Mr. Bartlett's Prob-
After a few weeks had passed, most of us
had settled down to our old routine of getting
by with the least effort in the most impressive
way. On September 21, the Student Council,
under the leadership of Bob Fletcher, opened
the campaign for G. O. Books, and for several
weeks harassed representatives tried des-
perately to collect 53.10 from every student.
The Student Court also began to function, and
culpable offenders, conspicuously singled out
by Mr. Thompson, were sentenced to hours of
But the fall season really got under way with
the first football game against Woodmere, and
our victory certainly bolstered the morale of
the school. Each succeeding Saturday brought
swarms of feminine supporters of old G. C.,
most of Whom had sacrificed their Friday nights
to keep the varsity in condition for the big
game. Remember the Pep Rally before the
Southside game? Lou and her cheerleaders
certainly went to town then, and We were dis-
appointed to lose that game. However, the
Maroons rallied their strength, and won all ex-
cept the last game: and the wonderful record
made by the soccer team, which was unde-
feated, made us very proud.
In October, the Senior Class, headed by
Frank Dunne, the newly-elected president, went
to work to raise funds for -the yearbook. The
magazine sale was initiated and was a tre-
mendous success. There Wasn't a parent in
Garden City who hadn't taken advantage of
the bargains offered by the Curtis Publishing
Company. Even now, perfectly useless agricul-
tural and dairy journals make their monthly
appearance in the homes of Senior Class mem-
bers and are stacked, unread, in the basement
for the Salvation Army. We certainly Went all
out for the class treasury. Little did the execu-
tive council realize that the Class of '43 would
graduate the richest Senior Class the school
had ever seen.
Throughout the month of October, drives for
yi f f
scrap metal, keys, war stamps, stockings and
other materials began to make their appear-
ance in the school. Parents are to this day
searching for lost garage keys or precious
nylons their unwitting offspring donated to
salvage drives. But all in all, these drives
were successful, and We felt ourselves more
and more a part of the war effort - espe-
cially When we saw the piles of old boilers,
tin cans, and stove pipes we had accumu-
Editors of the various school publications
began to look a little desperate as their dead-
lines were reached . . . and promptly ig-
nored by the staff members. But an excellent
issue of Inkspots made an appearance
around the Christmas holidays: and the dis-
tribution of the Echo on Wednesdays really
lifted our burdened spirits. The Mast staff
was also trying to reach some agreement as
to what kind of a yearbook to produce. We
did, eventually, as you can see.
Strains of music emanating from the audi-
torium aroused our curiosity which was
promptly satisfied at the record-breaking
concert given by the Glee Club in November.
Under "Uncle Harry's" able direction, this
organization gave a rendition of "I Hear
America Singing" which was really inspir-
ing. The Fall Band Concert was also given
at this time, featuring the famous Glen
Brown Trio, which obligingly played almost
all our requests, from "Silent Night" to "Be-
gin the Beguinef' The Senior Class sponsored
the Thanksgiving Dance on November 7,
and it was a great success. We were certain-
ly glad of that, after we had spent the whole
afternoon dragging in the huge, orange-
be-ribboned, and slightly bug-ridden corn
stalks which provided the main part of the
meagre "economy" decorations.
At F all Award Night on December 4, var-
sity letters were presented, and the cham-
pion soccer team received well-earned sil-
ver soccer balls fwhich were soon seen
around the necks of our feminine loveliesj.
We remembered the glamor and the thrills
of the fall season . . . the riot when the var-
sity football team wore blue jeans to school
. . . the excitement when Coach Smith was
presented with a baby girl. And then there
was McKibben's unfortunate injury in skull
practice. CWe wonder if he'll ever live it
downlj And what became of that proposed
hayride on I-lallowe'en'? Was it the weather?
The first issue of Rumor Bomanus, our fa-
mous Latin publication, made its appear-
ance in the thick of basketball practice and
preparations for the Senior Dance. Chante-
cler appeared a few weeks later and put us
right into the old Christmas spirit. True, we
were unable to trip lightly to classes to the
strains of "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing," and
we missed the Christmas Tree in the hall: but
we were consoled by the Masquers Club pres-
entation of "The Beau of Bath" and by the won-
derful Christmas Dance of the 23. The day
school closed, the orchestra and Glee Club com-
bined their talents in a Christmas Concert
which put us all in a holiday mood.
In the meantime, the basketball quintet -
the "Blonde Bombers" - in their darling red
uniforms, were capturing all eyes at Friday
night games, and making it difficult for us to de-
cide between watching them, doing homework,
or skating on Hubbell's Pond. But vacation in-
tervened, and a spell of warm weather made
us find other forms of amusement besides loaf-
ing at the Pond. CAnd don't think we didn't,
We trudged wearily back to school, only to
be told that the Seniors were to have their Mast
pictures taken that week. Following the coy
advice proffered by the photographer on those
little cards, we all smiled sweetly C?D at the
camera. Then mid-years reared their ugly
heads, and many of our more ambitious stu-
dents, hoping to graduate in lanuary, burned
the midnight oil over the physics and English
regents. Exams came and were gone, and re-
port cards - well, let's forget them. CGood
idea.-Edj Ianuary brought a definite deple-
tion in our ranks, when many of our most out-
standing members left for college and the
armed services. We tried to adjust ourselves
to this decrease, nobly quoting "C'est la
guerre": and having received our regents
marks, we had an additional incentive to spend
more time on our school work.
The war brought other changes in our curric-
ulum. A pre-flight training class was estab-
lished: the Red Cross met once a week with
Mrs. Petersen: and later on, a seamanship class
V 2 it W
was started by Mr. E. P. Andrews, under the
auspices of the Coast Guard. Mme. Lucienne
Olinger, an instructor at New York University,
brought one of the theatres of war closer to us
in an interesting and highly instructive talk on
Algiers at a meeting of the French Club.
Iust as we were settling down to a period of
real, concentrated work, with much gnashing
and chattering of teeth, Mr. Wassung declared
a vacation from February ll-23, because of the
fuel shortage. After we returned, fully rested
C?j, the rest of the Senior pictures were taken
and we held our elections for Senior Class offi-
cers. Iim Dillingham was chosen president to
replace "Doofer" Dunne, while Dick DeTurk
was elected vice-president in place of Iack
March came in like the proverbial lion, but
surprised us with some warm days, while we
frantic Seniors waited impatiently for our class
pictures. The boys received their awards for
winter sports at an assembly. Then the girls
gave everyone a turn by appearing in bow ties:
after a few feeble protests that they were going
to start wearing dresses, the boys reluctantly
agreed that the ties were "okay".
The third quarter ended on April 2, bringing
home the realization that only ten weeks of
school remained. Senior girls, striving madly
to make up those forgotten gym periods, rued
those "required" afternoons that had been
spent instead over a frosted float at Klipp's. Will
we ever learn? Spring fever began to take ef-
fect and the fancies of the few remaining boys
lightly turned to what we lonely hearts had
been thinking of all year. Colleges and busi-
ness schools started their annual deluge of "fan
mail" upon undecided Seniors. Should we post-
pone our plans for higher education in favor of
aiding the war effort by riveting, fighting po-
tato bugs or milking cows? With these ques-
tions still unanswered, we turned our atten-
tion to the Girls' Indoor Meet. After the usual
grilling weeks of rehearsal, the Girls of Gee

Cee High exhibited their talents in relays,
tumbling, drills, dances, and songs, on the
afternoon of April 2.
On April 5, the band gave one of its best
concerts, with lVlr. George Briegel, eminent
conductor and arranger, as guest artist. The
following week, the Glee Club presented a
Victory Concert, featuring Miss Claire
Deene, violinist: the sale of 35,000 worth of
war bonds made this a truly memorable
Men in uniform in this community are not
a novelty, but we did sit up and take notice
when our own boys appeared in uniform dur-
ing school. The Garden City Training Corps,
formerly under the guidance of Paul Brown,
its originator, became a part of the physical
education program. Throughout the spring
weeks, shouts of "Hep, two, three, four"
could be heard, as the boys drilled on the
playground adjacent to the Cathedral Ave-
The A-12 and V-12 programs were intro-
duced to us at an assembly in March, and
on April 2, thirty boys in the Iunior and Sen-
ior classes struggled through a three-hour
exam given in the library. Throughout the
remainder of the school year, those who
were accepted were notified to report for
their physical. Students who passed were
assured of the equivalent of a full college
education and a commission in the armed
Two very successful war activities this
year were the Red Cross War Drive and the
Bomber Drive. As a result of lVlr. Bartlett's
stirring appeal and our own personal feel-
ings, we raised S538.00 for the Red Cross.
In April and May, we went over the top in
raising the amount necessary to purchase a
bomber in the name of "Sonny" Edmonds, an
alumnus who was killed in action this year.
At the suggestion of Mr. Wassung, a Student
War Board composed of the Student Council.
and homeroom representatives working with
the faculty, was created to coordinate the
war effort in the school.
As a social preliminary to our spring vaca-
tion which was from April Z1-26, the Sopho-
mores gave their first dance on April 16. The
Iunior Class dance on May 7 followed short-
ly after the Senior dance held on April 30.
At all of these functions, the Stardusters, un-
der the leadership of our famous drummer,
Iohn Downey, furnished the swing and sway
for the evening.
The Masquer's Club concentrated its dra-
matic efforts this year on the presentation
in May of Barrie's "The Admirable Crich-
ton". Under the capable direction of Miss
Y llt will l l
Aurand, the new dramatics teacher, the cast
gave such a professional and amusing per-
formance, that we expect any day to hear
that Hollywood or Broadway have been on
the phone with attractive offers.
Studies went along as usual during May,
with more and more gym periods made up
and regents looming in the back of our
minds. We welcomed the chance to get the
first layer of our summer tan while settling
the world problems on the front steps at noon
and after school. What a change from those
icy, rainy April days! The Senior Bridge
took place on May 21, and proved to be very
successful, owing to the efforts of "Beezie"
Bora and her committee. On May 28, the
band gave its second concert. A program of
American marches was given outdoors, to
stimulate buying in G.C., through which the
P.T.A. Scholarship funds were raised.
Before we knew it, Iune was here. The
athletic year culminated in the girls' and
boys' athletic banquets. The boys had their
get-together on lune 35 awards and blazers
were presented to boys who had competed
and received their required number of points.
The week before regents, the G.A.A. held its
annual banquet, where Grays and Maroons
were presented with awards, and incoming
officers were introduced. Original entertain-
ment followed the speakers of the evening,
and if noise and hilarity are any indication
of a good time, we had it!
Iune l4! A day almost as formidable to
us as Income Tax Day to our parents! As
we dragged ourselves into our bout with Kid
Regents, we wondered wistfully why we had
not studied these last four years. What a re-
lief it was when the dreadful week was over,
and we could whisper hoarsely, "Well, I
Almost before we knew it, the time had
come for us to march into the auditorium for
the last time. It seemed incredible that just
twelve years ago we had been playing in
the sand boxes of Stratford and Cathedral
Avenue Schools: incredible that those twelve
years had flown by so quickly. Thanks to
our teachers, to Mr. Coulbourn and to Mr.
Wassung, we had reached the goal toward
which we had been Working -

The Maroons of 1942 proved to be a team of great
merit. They played to win, but winning or losing, they
played courageously and smartly, and above all, clean-
ly. They finished the season with five victories and two
defeats, a very creditable record when the fact is con-
sidered that the team had to be built on a foundation
of only two of last year's regulars, George McKibben
and lack Cordes. Co-captains Bob Fletcher and lack
Cordes were inspiring leaders. It would be difficult to
choose a star, the team played so well as a unit. As a
result of constant practice to insure close cooperation,
and of individual ability, the team made an excellent
showing and provided many exciting moments for its
The soccer team was poison to its rivals. Not a game
was lost by these sterling boys, and even their arch
rival of old, Sea Cliff, only succeeded in eking out a
tie with them, for which Sea Cliff is to be congratulated,
as our boys were hard to beat. They seemed to know
just what to do with their feet, and booted the ball with
abandon, running up six points in one game. Fifteen
points alone were garnered by the devastating trio of
Mark Foley, Arthur Foley, and Captain Frank Dunne.
Great credit also goes to lack Mcllhenny and Howard
Prentzel for their fine defensive work. And goalie Dan
Robinson certainly should take a bow for permitting
only five'balls to slip by all season. All in all, the soc-
cer team was good-the whole team.
The cross country team, although weakened by the
loss of the Byrne brothers and Bill Elmendorf, came
through twice victorious over Oceanside and defeated
Southside once, while dropping a total of four through-
out the season. Iohn Carroll, captain of the team, was
the key man, winning four out of seven contests and
coming in second once. The Reidmen soundly drubbed
Oceanside in the last meet of the year at Hempstead
State Park. On the two and one-tenth mile course, Iohn
Carroll crossed the finish line in ll minutes 16 sec-
onds. Denver Gray took second place, while Iohn Dow-
ney captured fourth. Don Bond, an outstanding runner
this year, was elected captain for the next season.
Although the team did not complete
a record quite comparable to that of
their illustrious predecessors, they did
provide many thrills, the most stunning
upset of the season and two overtime
victories over Mineola. The defeat of
undefeated Glen Cove showed the team
at its best: Captain George McKibben
registered 23 points, and Ed Norell, Don
Ouchterloney, Don Sommers, and Char-
lie Hilms contributed with their best
performances of the season.
The marksmen managed to keep
shooting in spite of war-time restrictions
and interruptions. Mr. Douglas, their
coach of long standing, was claimed by
the Army, but the sharpshooters car-
ried on with the aid of Mr. Reid and the
postal match system. Matches were
shot at home and the score cards were
sent to an official scorer who returned
the result via postal card. Art Snyder,
"Ace" Bick, and Dick Hubbell led a
The Grapplers, with several good,
but inexperienced fellows on the team,
managed a fairly successful season.
New men, including Bob Fletcher, lim
Dillingham, and Ierry Feliu, learning
the holds in a very short time, filled the
gaps left by the departure of loe Dona-
hue and Fraser lones. Peter Gibson -
"chained lightning" - Ralph Forman
and Walter Iohnson all made excellent
records. And on the whole, the team
showed great potential power.
This sport drew a large turnout of fel-
lows this year, all interested in showing
their prowess in the ring. Under the
capable direction of Pete Carter, the
boys spent long hours improving their
skill in practice bouts. The climax of
the season was the tournament given
for the benefit of the Red Cross, in
which all weights participated. Aside
from one knockout, the bouts were
evenly matched and extremely exciting
In spite of the loss of lack Cordes and Frank Dunne,
two star players on the baseball nine, the team showed
an amazing amount of co-ordination and spirit this
year. Bob Fletcher and "Henny" Mueller, two of the
best pitchers in the North Shore League, held their own
admirably on the mound. "Long George" McKibben.
batting a cool 384, proved to be one of the sparkplugs
of the team. Sam Schroeter, Walt Mueller, and Don
Ouchterloney gave the team defensive support by their
potent fielding. Most of the games were hard-fought,
and the few heart-breakers, such as the game when
Great Neck brought in the clinching run in the tenth
inning, only served to stimulate the boys to further
Contrary to what the scores would indicate, the la-
crosse team played some hard-fought and closely-
matched games this season. Although the team was
handicapped by the loss of some of its best players
through Ianuary graduation, including Ioe Donahue,
co-captain, they showed an aggressive spirit even in
the thick mud of the Peekskill game. Captain Tom
Stack and his teammates, including Mark Foley, Dick
Hubbell, and Bob Paisley, did remarkably well under
trying circumstances. The team, low on experience
and weight, and disappointed by defeat, nevertheless
gave a good account of themselves in the majority of
At the beginning of the season, the track team came
close to putting Coaches Reid and Horton into service
as milers, since the accelerated program claimed Den-
ver Gray, star quarter-miler, and Iohn Carroll, out-
standing half-miler. The team made a poor showing,
coming in second to last at the Port Washington meet.
However, Stuart Bicknell tied for first place with a high
jump of five feet ten inches. This inspired the coaches
with new hope. They spent long hours working out the
trackmen. As a result, the boys showed much improve-
ment and under the circumstances made a very accept-

The fall season of girls' sports this year offered
hockey, archery, and badminton. Although only a few
lonely athletes met the first few days, the season had
an unusual turnout: the climax was the long-anticipated
St. Mary's game on November 12. Basketball followed
close on the heels of the Maroon-Gray song contest,
and the winter season was under way. In April, the
Gray team bowed to the Maroons at the annual Indoor
Meet. Spring sports were inaugurated, including base-
ball, lacrosse, and archery, and frantic Seniors strug-
gled to make up periods missed from as far back as
the seventh grade. At the end of Iune, the Girls' Ath-
letic Banquet terminated a very successful year.
