On October 5 for our first auditorium program we were presented with a Recital in Black and White by Mr. and Mrs. Reaser of New York. Mr. Reaser cleverly painted in black on a white canvas while Mrs. Reaser delight-fully played the piano. Both artists displayed great skill and adeptness in their respective arts.
On October 16 Mr. Keyes, representing the Terminex Company, presented a moving picture on the subject of Termites. We were told of the process which the termites have used in making themselves one of the worst enemies of mankind. Their work, which is carried on in a smooth-well-governed, systematic manner, is being studied by scientists, who are trying to learn their secret. Later Mr. Keyes answered the many questions of the audience, which displayed the interest shown in his program. Mr. Keyes also spoke in several of the biology classes.
On October 19 Dr. Carlton Palmer of New York spoke on The Joy of Pictures. Dr. Palmer, a collector of original paintings, has a valuable and varied collection gathered from the entire world. While telling about his love of pictures he showed a number of paintings from his collection. He showed us the difference between photographs and paintings and gave suggestions for looking at pictures so that we may get the real value and joy from them. From Dr. Palmer’s talk the students and faculty gained valuable information and pleasure.
On November 6 Mr. Franklin Caveny, a sculptor and artist, demonstrated his ability in his respective arts. He entertained the audience with his humorous talk and poem quotations while he worked rapidly. He first drew a very artistic picture of a Venetian night, followed by a very beautiful picture of Niagara Falls, which he drew sideways. Modeling in clay, he executed an excellent likeness of Abraham Lincoln, and with this same face he shaped Uncle Sam’s countenance. As a novelty he pictured a scene from plain flannel rags. Mr. Caveny also made caricatures in crayon of Mr. Earley and Mr. Nettleton.
On November 11 an Armistice Day Program was held in the auditorium. Edward O’Connell gave a brief talk on The Unknown Soldier, which was followed by a silent period and the sounding of taps. Roberta Bingham recited In Plunders Field, and the choir sang Lead Kindly Light. Mr. William Fitzgerald, formerly of the United States Navy, spoke concerning the observance of Armistice Day.

Sorely lacking experienced and heavy players, Lyman Hall’s football team barely plodded through four defeats before it wound up its schedule with a 6-0 win over Stratford High in a second period surprise play. Only two of the five games were played at Simpson Field and the winning contest was played in Stratford.
The indomitable spirit of Captain Joseph Kristan was highly effective in upholding the team’s morale.
Fortunately only one severe accident occurred, and that was in the alumni game when Ernest LaCroix received a broken leg. No score was kept of this game, which was terminated immediately after the injury.
The records of the season’s games follow:
Lyman Hall 0 Milford 7
Lyman Hall 0 Shelton . ... 20
Lyman Hall 0 Branford ... 25
Lyman Hall 6 Derby ... 28
Lyman Hall 6 Stratford . . . 0
Totals ... 12 80
All games are being played in the high-school gymnasium this year, a transfer from the State Armory because of the decreasing attendance during the past few seasons. By the time this is read, the Orangemen will have played five games, and their ability on the court will be possibly a known fact.
Four teams are new on our schedule this year, East Haven, Woodrow Wilson, Watertown, and New Britain Trade. Nineteen games are listed on the schedule, eight of which are to be played out of town. As usual the important games will be played with Housatonic League opponents.
