THE TREASURE CHEST GLASS Will. We, the Class of 1941 of Manasquan High School, being of reasonably sound mind and body after four years of unceasing mental exertion in this institution of learning, do hereby make, publish, and declare this our last will and testament, hereby revoking all former will, bequests, and devises of what ever nature by as already made. To our supervising principal, Mr. Wilbur D. Crosley, and our principal, Dr. Marion C. Woolson, we bequeath our sincere appreciation of the guidance they have given up through our four years here at Manasquan. Long may we remember the advice and words of wisdom extended to us. To our teachers, we bequeath our visions, all in good and unhampered condition. With this gift they will be able to depict the future of their students and so work to arrange their lives from day to day. We also bequeath a generous amount of examination papers to grade, notebooks to correct, and averages to make. ' To the library, we bequeath our Wild West Stories, our detective magazines, our comic books, and other articles which we have prized so highly and so carefully read all the year. We feel confident that Miss Wirth will take care of Superman, The Flame, and our other heroes, and that she will make these stories available to the incoming classes. To the Junior Class following us, we leave our old books, our lockers which won't lock and those which will lock but won't unlock. We also leave all the mistakes we have made and all the knowledge we failed to grasp. We, the members of the Class of 1941, having an abundance of unusual abilities do hereby bequeath said'abilities to the underclassmen so that they may aid them in their right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Virginia Randolph, Stanley Reed, and Dick Kittell grant their fine personalities to Virginia Franklin, Tim Macauley, and William Hurley, not that they need them but they may be a help. Darcy Scudder and Bert Ehret leave their sophistication to Elizabeth Cotov, and Harry Brewer. Emma Walzer and Adolph Jansky leave their athletic ability to June Shinn and Bill Moore, provided this bequest is used advantageously. Arline Walker bestows her oHice practice ability upon Lorraine McLain. Doris Okerson bequeaths her voice to Doris Matteson. Alonzo Stewart leaves his ability to get along with the girls to Edward Washburnc. Richard Lewis leaves his collection of jokes to Colly Harris. Clara Mueller grants her ability to get along with the male population of this institu- tion to her sister Martha. This skill must run in the family. The members of Mr. Shaw's sixth period P.A.D. class grant to the P.A.D. classes to follow us, their ability to know the answers to every problem, to pay strict attention to the subject at hand, and to understand all of Mr. Shaw's puns, Irma Jackson leaves her shyness to LaVerne Coeyman. Adelaide McCarthy bequeaths her pep to Ethel Bennett. Jane Daniel leaves her jokes and sense of humor to Evelyn Southard. Ruth Browfn and Arline Walker leave their positions behind the candy counter to Barbara Newman and Edith Pearce. Fifty

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.

SIGNED: The Class of 1941 of Manasquan High School. Fifty-one
