THE TREASURE CHEST One of the most exciting moments during the year was the day we chose our class ring. Now the members of our class proudly wear their school insignia. The Junior Follies was as successful as the Sophomores' Follies had been. This time a school of the colonial period and a school of twenty years hence were depicted in parody style. The actors and actresses of the Junior Class presented a three-act comedy "Big-Hearted Herbert". These two productions proved that the Juniors had learned well the lessons of co-operation and management which this school teaches. One warm, clear night in May, a group of Juniors stood about the once-barren gymnasium and listened with pride to the remarks of their fellow classmates who were admiring the beauty they saw. In the center of the floor stood a wishing-well surrounded by a rock garden. over-head silver stars glittered down from the dark sky. Beautiful peach blossoms were in full bloom. By a picket fence were garden chairs where wo could sit and admire all of this unusual beauty. This fairy-land made a perfect setting for the most formal event of the school year, the Junior Prom. The last day of our Junior Year, we sadly bade the Seniors goodbye. However we soon forgot our sorrow by thinking of the coming year. William Senior and Elizabeth Senior-the title which had always seemed so distant -was now affixed to us individually. Each girl and boy had labored unceasingly in order to deserve this advantage of being a Senior. An attitude of fullest trust and confidence was shown. to us by all. 'As Seniors we were often asked to assume various responsibilities in the school which we accepted willingly. During this year the class elected Louis Donato, President, Franklin Shaak, Vice-President, Jean Love, Secretary: and Betty Pearce, Treasurer. Each officer and committee co-operated and the success of their undertakings proves this statement. During the first month of school we played the part of salesmen and saleswomen in order to sell magazines. Later in the year some of the students put on grease-paint and costumes in order to present "Moon Over Mulberry Street". Then others took out pencil and paper and started to compile the contents of the Treasure Chest. The Year Book staff included editors, artists, photographers, and historians. This year's Treasure Chest is so full of memories that the class wonders if the cover will stay closed, for during their four years of high school the members have taken advantage of every opportunity offered them. Soon after this we donned traveling clothes, packed bags, boarded four buses, traveled to Washington, D. Cl., and toured our capital for three exciting days. The boys and girls in our class have participated in all sports, the Student Government, the Student Court, the Hall Patrol, the National Honor Society, the clubs of the school, the All-State Chorus and Orchestra, the Youth Congress, and Dramatic Contests. Now our examinations are over and soon our duties to this school and the rights we have enjoyed' will be only memories. Class Night allows us to renew in our minds these past events, and permits us to glimpse into the future. Baccalaureate gives the Benediction to our high school life. Graduation grants us the opportunity of entering a new era of our existence. Ours has been an excellent class in every way. As in all histories, this paper presents only facts. It is impossible to express the thoughts of each participant, for the actual experince is enjoyed individually. Thus you, our listeners, must be content with this meager account of our joys. We have many pleasant memoriesm to take with us as we depart to make our own way in the world, but we hope that we shall always be remembered, not as a separate class, but as part of a great institution, Manasquan High School.

THE TREASURE CHEST GLASS HIISTQIRY 1941 By ROSALIND and LORANA KAHN The hum of voices floated through the auditorium doors of Manasquan High School on September 1937. The voices belonged to the Freshmen who were meeting for the second time in the building. The first occasion had been that of Eighth Grade Day, when they had viewed this institution as visitors. Now we, as Willie and Betty Freshman, considered ourselves a vital part of the student body. Soon Miss Robinson, Mrs. Rankin, Mr. Ehre, Mr. Fish, and Mrs. Wickham guided us to our homerooms and started us successfully on a new chapter of our lives. Realizing that individuals must be organized democratically, the Freshman Class elected class oflicers and committees. Gordon Miller, President, Winifred Cox, Vice- Presidentg Clara Mueller, Secretary, Adelaide McCarthy, Treasurer, led our class that year in all our activities, such as the Freshman Dance and the Freshman P.T.A. Inspired by the success of the upper classmen, the Freshmen resolved that their school careers should be the most beneficial to the school as a whole. As each student became orientated we recognized the privileges and benefits offered to us by the faculty and the school property. As we made friends with the upper class- men we found that the student body of this school not only accepted the freshmen but expected them to enter into school life. As we took part in the activities, we gradually learned lessons of leadership and service which will always be valuable to us. As a whole our class contained every type of individual. Therefore, through acts of service, we have been able to repay our school in many ways for our training. On September 1938, we, as Billy and Bette Sophomore, expertly walked from class to class and condescendingly gazed upon the Freshmen. We felt very well acquainted with our surroundings as we greeted old friends and made new ones. The class welcomed Mr. Maisch as a new adviser and renewed friendships with Miss Robinson, Mrs. Rankin, Mrs. Wickham, and Mr. Fish. The first Class meeting of that year gave the Sophomores the opportunity of selecting oiiicers. Winfield Coxas Presidentg Howard Edwards as Vice-Presidentg Darcy Scudder as Secretary, and Chester Allen as Treasurer, proved that the classmen had discovered the talents of these individuals. On the evening of the Sophomore P.T.A. we brought our parents to meet the faculty once again. A great many skilled boys and girls received an opportunity to display special accomplishments at the Sophomore Follies and Dance. How grown up we looked as we danced after the performance. Our confidence was quite a contrast to Freshmen shyness. As, the year progressed we realized more and more the vast opportunities which awaited us. All we had to do was to explore them and choose that which best fitted our individual qualifications. We began to wonder how we could ever accomplish in such a short period of time the projects we decided to complete. As Juniors, Bill and Beth, we entered Manasquan High School on September 1939 with dignity, for we had reached the half-way mark in our high school careers. We stopped in our homerooms to chat with Miss Robinson, Mrs. Rankin, Mrs. Wickham, Mr. Fish, and Mr. Maisch, and then we roamed through the halls greeting old friends. Soon regular routine began and in a few days the news of class ofhcers was published. Stanley Reed, President, Richard Kittell, Vice-President, Ruth Brown, Secretaryg Robert Barraud, Treasurer, led the Juniors in many scholastic and social events. For the first time in the history of Manasquan High School Student Government, the citizens elected a Junior as their president. Franklin Shaak received this honor. F orty-eight
