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 Scarsdale's chessmen. 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- cessful one. 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. ' ' 37

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, treasurer. 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 club's use. 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 38 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.
