With Mr. Checksfield, the English exchange teach-
er taking over the reins, the Chess Club came through
with a fairly good season.
The ofhcers of this year's group of mental gym-
nasts were Chester Freeman, presidentg Schuyler Pat-
ton, vice-presidentg and Robert Van Wie, secretary.
Competing in the Westchester Scholastic Chess
League composed of teams from Scarsdale, Mount
Vernon, Yonkers, and Mamaroneck, the squad emerg-
ed triumphant from two matches by twice defeating
Next year the team hopes to participate in a greater
number of meets.
All home encounters were played in the library,
probably the one place in the school where quiet, reigns
supreme. The atmosphere of concentration was so
profound that, at the sight of the players engrossed
in deep thought, one might have thought that Ma-
maroneck High School was sponsoring an advanced
thinkers' institute. Most assuredly, absolute tranquil-
lity was an essential factor in the team's victories.
Although unsung, the group merits much respect.
Under faculty adviser Miss Sirica, ollicers of the
Red Cross Club were Iune Battenhausen, president,
Ioanne Sanborn, vice-president, Gabrielle Fuchs, sec-
retary, and Arlita Holt, treasurer. The club obtained
loo percent in its Red Cross Drive, successfully spon-
sored the Care Drive, and collected over 5100 in the
March of Dimes Drive under co-chairmen Emily
Shimkin and Edith Englander. The help of Miss
Rentchleris art classes and Miss Bacheller's sewing
classes also aided greatly in making this year a suc-
The Forum Club this year, sponsored by Miss Ehn-
bom, discussed many topics of current interest, such
as religion, socialized medicine, education, and of
course, the national elections. The members were
also fortunate in having one meeting with the ex-
change teacher from England, Mr. Checksfield. At
another meeting there was a speaker from the World
Federalist group. Heading this fiery group of would-
be orators were Bob Kiely, president, Pete Iennewein,
vice-president, and Mary Lou Pierce, secretary-treasurer.
The Engineers Club, under the conscientious sup-
ervision of genial Mr. Arnold Manchester, held fasci-
nating meetings every other Monday night. Partici-
pating in these programs were both students and guest
speakers, who gave talks on such subjects as the field
of modern inventing and electronics, especially radio,
telephone, and radar. Perhaps most enjoyable of the
club's gatherings, though, was the evening of April 11,-
when Ed Brauner, president, operated his own radio
station, W2URF, from Mr. Manchester's room by
means of a temporary antenna.
Among the club's chief duties was the operation of
the new public address system. Every morning, at
least two members faithfully aided with the tasks of
presenting the announcements. Iust as methodical was
their control of the football scoreboard, which always
adds much enjoyment to the games.
Other diligent club officers included Mort Lowen-
thal, vice-president, Iane Ann Hughes, secretaryg and
Weir Daly, treasurer. ' '

This year, the French Club was organized under the
sponsorship of Mrs. Hatch. The first meeting was
held just before Christmas and since then the group,
comprised of ninety members, has been very active.
A number of the members attended services one Sun-
day at a French church in New York, and the club
worked with the Larchmont Lions Club on the "Abbe-
ville Projectf' Also, there were two guest speakers
at the meetings, which were conducted in French.
The officers were Betty Stowe, president, Pat Fish,
vice-presidentg Beverly Mitten, secretary, and Bob Ely,
The past school year saw one of the most successful
seasons for the Spanish Club. Among its activities
were a picnic at Flint Park with the German Club,
and a meeting at which slides of Mexico were shown.
By far the most memorable event, however, was the
club's Christmas party, complete with a pinata and
an exhibition of the "Mexican shuffle." All those who
attended enjoyed the entertainment and the refresh-
ments. Assisting faculty advisor Miss Edith Sirica
were this year's officers: Mary Ley, president, Kitty
Kirkman, vice-president, Ethel Ginsburg, secretary,
and Patt Litt, treasurer. The committees for the vari-
ous aifairs included publicity, refreshment, entertain-
ment, and membership, all headed by the club's cap-
able oflicers. These girls did much work to help make
this year a most enjoyable one for the club members.
The Spanish Club strives to promote better relations
with the South American countries, and each year
awards a medal to the student in third or fourth year
Spanish whose work and interest do the most to fur-
ther this aim.
"Get your ice cold soda!" "Hot dogs a dime!"
"Hot coffee or what you want!" With these words
ringing out above football cheers and victory marches,
Mamaroneck's shutterbugs were off to another active
year under their capable faculty adviser, Mr. Iohn H.
Corlield. That this industrious selling by the camera
club members paid oFf, is evidenced by treasurer Frank
Stern's account book, which recorded the purchase of
a four by five Speed Graphic press camera, a De Iure
Professional enlarger, and other equipment for the
Every month the group held exhibitions on vari-
ous subjects, each member being required to submit
at least one print. The photos had to be five by seven
inches, or larger, and had to be mounted on standard
sixteen by twenty mounting boards. Prints were judged
by Miss Devereux and Mr. Manchester. Miss Dever-
eux judged for composition, mounting, contrast, and
subject matter, while Mr. Manchester assigned the
points for photo finishing. The six prints receiving
the highest number of points out of a possible forty
were placed in the display cabinets opposite the office.
Meetings were held each Wednesday, with A. I.
Stone, the excellent photographer, presiding. After
the minutes had been read by Helen Scherff, secre-
tary, a program dealing with some phase of photog-
raphy was presented. Programs consisted of talks by
members of the club, lectures, slides, and quizzes con-
ducted by Ted Herz, vice-president.
Apart from school hours, groups of members often
took field trips. New York City, Kensico Dam and
localities in Connecticut were among the places visited
for picture material. Returning with an image on
his film, the member then retired to the dark room
to process and print his exposure.
