Agriculture seems to be Ray's big interest. Along
this line he is also interested and active in 4-H work.
This fact is proved by the number of 4-H "get-to-

cuse to get out of school? Even with activities, he
still finds time for baseball.

With apologies to "Night Before Christmas"
By Ralph Owen
'Twas the start of the term when all through the school
Not a Freshman was stirring, and teachers were cruel.
The books were flung swiftly in desks without care
In hope that vacation soon would be there.
While visions of "Birchard" now danced in their heads,
"Jennie" glanced at the "greenies" and shuddered with dread.
As sophs we bowed humbly to young Miss "Mac."
And settled our brains for a long Winter's nap.
Our party at Choconut we'll never forget.
Our sponsor's rash umpiring is still with us yet.
As Juniors we learned how to read Poetry,
And this little incident impressed us, you see.
At the front of the room there arose such a clatter,
That "Patrick" himself wondered what was the matter.
That Davidson woman was at it ag'ing
This time "Art" Richards was changing a grin.
The little bald man so happy and bright
The well-behaved Seniors knew as "Pop" Sipe.
More rapid than raindrops his questions they came.
As he whistled and shouted and called them by name.
"Now Ainey, now Calby, now Griffis, and Bowen,
You boys in that corner, you better get goin',
And I'll tell you one thing, you're not going to pass.
Though this may be fun, it's still Chemistry Class."
As to our senior play, the town must confess
That "You Can't Take it With You" was one grand success.
As we pack up our books, and away we all speed
"We will make this world better"-let this be our creed.
Our third year in high school was opened by a class election which
proved an exciting, and enjoyable time. We decided upon George Finn, Jr.,
as president, Michael Conners, vice-presidentg Jennie Adams, secretaryg
and Donald Seely, treasurer.
Another event of the year was the selection of our class-rings. Due
to War conditions, we were not able to have as large a choice as in former
years, but most of us were satisfied with either a plain gold ring, or a black-
stoned ring With the school crest engraved upon the top of the ring, in gold.
Interest in music has widened in our class, since we had Jennie
Adams, Elizabeth Brogan, Joyce Stephens, Doris Lamb, and Joseph Welden
to bring us our share of laurels in music.
Square-dancing was introduced during the noon-hours by Douglas
Bollinger, with the help of interested pupils, who collected money and
bought phonograph records of popular square-dance tunes.
Among those who left our class this year were, Wanda Estabrook,
Grace McCollum, Evelyn Wells, and Harriete Dadeyg we also gained Doro-
thy Turoski, Marjorie Turoski, John Brewer, and LaVerne Plummer.
Now, as always, sports hold our interest. Both indoor and outdoor
sports were equally enjoyed during the past term, and many honors were
The Girls' Softball team headed by Celia Kuroski, Ethel Blaisure, Ann
Daly, and Jean Tennyson as Junior representatives, paved the way for the
Hockey team composed of Jennie Adams, Harriette DeWees, Ann Daly,
Betty Lewis, and Betty Stevens, these girls gave the rest of the team fine
Mr. Birchard organized debating teams in his Junior History classes
and the affirmative team fJennie Adams, Betty Brown, Elizabeth Brogan,
and Ann Dalyj won over the negative team 1Ruth Webster, Kenneth
Norton, Norman Stone, and Betty Stevensl.
A very enjoyable evening was spent by all who attended the Junior
class box social and dance held in the school auditorium on Tuesday,
Our class was ably led tlirough this your by the following officers:
President ,... , .. Dick Merrill
Vice-President , , . ,.o, Winifrecl Stone
Secretary ..., .,.. M arion Clark
Treasurer .... .... ' Fed Calloy
There is now a vacancy in our list of officers, since Winifred Stone
Vice-president, has moved to Greene, New York.
Due to the war situation, social affairs have played a very minor role
in our class.
Duane Stephens and Albert Tunillo entered the HM. H. S. Life"
contest. Duane Stephens emerged from the contest with third honor.
Sophomore delegates to District Band Were Ruth Allen, Lillian Weed,
Ruth Taylor, and William Ohman.
Our annual spring party was held on Monday evening, April 27, in the
school auditorium. From a box social and informal dance We met our
financial obligation to the year book.

The Montrose Hi-Y Club opened this year with Bob Andre, presidentg
Dave Ball, vice-presidentg Art Richards, treasurerg Amos Hollister, sec-
retaryg Ted Calby, assistant secretary, and 80 members, the largest the
club has ever had.
During the year We devoted meetings to hobbies and talks by outside
speakers. Private Art Clink gave a talk o11 army life, Mr. O'Brien spoke
on civilian defense, and Judge Little gave a talk on "War and Its Effect
on Youth." Later We elected officers for the coming year.
The outstanding event of the year was the Older Boys' Conference at
Berwick, which a number of the boys enjoyed. After the conference we
felt that it would be a patriotic gesture on the part of the club to assume
some financial responsibility in the present War crisis, so the boys bought
a 3100 Defense Bond.
The concluding event of the year was the Annual Father and Son Ban-
quet, Where 64 parents and sons enjoyed themselves. Rev. Steinmetz was
the chief speaker.
Page F01 ty six
The iirst Tri-Hi-Y meeting of the year was called to order by the new
ofiicers on September 17 in the auditorium. Rev. John Marvin was the
guest speaker, and a record attendance of 132 was present.
On October 22, the Hi-Y and Tri-Hi-Y held a joint induction ceremony,
at which time the senior Tri-Hi-Y officially recognized 90 paid members.
The club invited the Hi-Y boys to the first party, October 24. Re-
freshments were served to 120. The boys returned the favor by an invita-
tion to a coasting party in February.
There were several meetings of special interest during the year, in-
cluding a discussion on "Home and School Relationships." Miss Fisher,
from the Montrose School for Girls, pleased us with a review of her experi-
ences in India. She brought with her various objects of interest from that
On November 4 the Montrose clubs were host at a rally of the county
Tri-Hi-Y and Hi-Y clubs. Mr. Swales was the speaker for the occasion.
Because of the danger of Infantile Paralysis, many of the girls who
planned to go to Lake Ariel were disappointed. In its place a district
meeting was held at Scranton, December 6.
The following sums were donated by the club to various organizations:
Red Cross, S155 Y. M. C. A., 3105 Caney Creek Community Center, 36.
Many Well-known citizens of the community led discussions on the
study of "Gateways to Freedom," a Bible study pamphlet.
On March 1, a recognition service was held to honor Mrs. Highhouse
and Mr. Birchard for 13 and 8 years of service, respectively. The musical
organizations of the Montrose high school participated, and Judge Little
gave the address.
Page F01 ty seven
With the increased enrollment in high school, the Tri-Hi-Y club be-
came so large that the place of meeting, the Math room, could not accom-
modate all of the girls. It was then decided to organize a Junior Tri-Hi-Y
club for the girls of the Freshman Class.
This year's Tri-Hi-Y club has as members 39 girls of the 62 enrolled
in the Freshman Class.
On Tuesday, October 2, the Junior Tri-Hi-Y club met and the purpose
and principles of the club were explained. The girls who decided they
would like to become members of such an organization met on October 9,
and elected the following oiiicers: President, Barbara Robertsg Vice-
president, Betty Clapperg Secretary, Elizabeth Pottsg Treasurer, Helen
Herman. After Betty Clapper left school, Jean Harman became vice-
We were invited to attend a skating party held by the Hi-Y club.
This was later changed to a sleigh riding party. Many of our members
Many of the Junior and Senior Tri-Hi-Y girls Went out for basketball.
This made it possible for us to be guests at the Senior Tri-Hi-Y meetings
during the basketball season.

SEN IOR PLAY
"You Can't Take It With You," a three-act comedy, was presented by
the Senior Class on April 22, 1942, and proved to be a great success.
The scene of the play is laid in the home of Martin Vanderhof, just
around the corner from Columbia University. A group of individuals, the
Sycamore family, is presided over by Grampa Vanderhof-Bud Bowen.
Members of this household do as they like and no questions are asked.
Their fancies range from ballet dancing to the perfection of fireworks.
Comparative calm exists until the youngest daughter, Alice-Jane Dale,
becomes engaged. On the wrong night her fiance, Tony Kirby-Dave
Ball, arrives with his family to fulfill a dinner appointment. Chaos reigns.
The Kirbys are bitterly disappointed and refuse to allow their son to as-
sociate with the Sycamore family. The ease with which the affairs are
finally settled proves the ability of the playwrights, Moss Hart and George

Busy? Of course, because we are members of Montrose High School
Band. And so we started in September for another successful year.
Our activities have been many, including the Library Benefit, Concert,
trip to Tunkhannock fair, playing for various organizations, and bidding
our soldier boys a "musical farewell" when they left for camp.
The District Band Concert at Canton and the Annual Music Festival at
New Milford were well represented by our players. Jean Davies and
Ralph Owen were our representatives at the All-State Band held in Millvale.
"Huck" Finn, Cornetg "Bob" Andre, French Horng Albert Ainey, Bassg
and "Don" Taylor, Saxophone represented our school in solo contests.
They all made showings of which the school may be proud. "Bob" be-
came State Champion for the second successive year.
The band took second place in the contest for "Class A" bands.
The Success of our band, as always, is due to the conscientious and
able leadership of Mr. Taylor. He is the one who ends the year with a
band of which Montrose can proudly say, "That's our band, and it is 'tops'."

The Montrose chapter of the F. F. A. was founded in our school under
the direction of Mr. Joseph Clapper in the term of 1940-41. It has had an
opportunity to get under way and make itself known this school year
under the experienced guidance of Mr. Backenstose.
Mr. Backentose brought from Penn State the "Harvest Ball" idea.
The F. F. A. boys sponsored their Harvest Ball on the night of November
21. It was a great success and it helped greatly to let the public as well
as the school know that the F. F. A. was "there and in action."
The F. F. A. boys have undertaken several projects as a club such
as a hot bed, a chicken project, pruning, and tree planting. Each boy has
his own individual project, as well, which he carries on at home. It may
consist of a calf project, a garden, a home improvement project, or any of
a number of others.
It takes a great deal of time and energy to get an organization like the
F. F. A. started and really moving. There were forty-two members this
year, and we feel sure that with the enthusiasm the boys have shown, it
will grow to be a more and more powerful organization within the school.
Page Fifty four
Under the splendid coaching of Mr. Backenstose the girls were able to
place second in the league.
Jean Davies: "Dave," one of the four seniors, has proved her ability
as guard or forward. Her first team work will be missed next year.
Ethelyn Wood: "Woody" is our A No. 1 guard. If you don't believe
it, ask those who played against her.
Betty Stevens: "Steve" is little, but oh my! That doesn't stop her
from scoring. Her ability to duck under her opponentis arms and to shoot
is to be envied by many.
Marian Hughes: "Hughsie" is one of the most loyal. For four years
she has proved herself a necessity to the M. H. S. sextette.
Joyce VanAntwerp: "Van," another first team forward, will be
missed next year. Her ability to pass was of great value to the team.
Emily Knight: "Em" is our fast little guard who can jump and guard
Betty Lewis: "Lewie" is a guard that really means business when she
Genevieve Rydjewski: "Gennie" was only a sub, but she has three
more years to play for M. H. S.
Dorothy Turoskyz "Dot" is our forward who can shoot anywhere,
any time. She certainly knows the meaning of "team work."
Ann Daly: Ann, a sub, proves an excellent prospect for next year.
This year the season was only average. Even though we won only
five games, we were never beaten badly. Hard luck and inexperience were
the main causes for the losses.
The prospects for next year's team, however, are fine. Art Richards is
the only one to leave by graduation. The players remaining are John
Early, Teddy Calby, Amos Hollister, "Lefty" Palmer, John Strope, Pete
Ball, and Ellery Corwin.
A summary of the games is as follows:
New Milford ,
Great Bend . .
Nicholson , . ,

Baseball season started off with a bang. Even before school was
fairly well under way, the team was organized, and under the direction of
Coach Backenstose had "skinned', a fine new diamond. The team met and
took new Milford twice in pre-season games. Our boys sailed through
the season suffering only one defeat, this, at the hands of Brooklyn. The
team went on and defeated Rush twice, Springville once, Auburn once, and
New Milford again to take the county championship.
Coach Backenstose took his material, and with unusual skill, whipped
it into the shape and power which took the championship. The members
of the team were quite regular in their appearance for practice every night
This year, for the first time, the school charged ten cents admission
to the games. In this way, a large part of the expenses was paid, to the
surprise of all.
On each of the home games, the school "pep band" was there to cheer
On the whole, it was a very successful season, which Coach Backen-
stose and the team may look back on with pride.

The year started off fine with a squad of Hfteen. Practice started
right after mid-terms. On March 13 we went to New Milford, and the
varsity was beaten two out of three games. Our junior varsity won the
first two games against New Milford's junior varsity. These were our
only games, for due to a mistake in the District Secretary's office, we were
not entered in the Keystone Championship play-off.
On March 20, Mr. Chilletti and fifteen ol' the players went to Nichol-
son. It was supposed that this was the Keystone play-off, but, as the
District Championship was at stake, Montrose was not allowed to com-
