' First among these was thc resolution to make the Annual -truly representative. To this rule we have adhered strictly, as will be seen from the subject matter Second, it was decided that, as far as possible, every contribution should receive an unbiased copsiderationg in other words, that each contribu- tion should 'fbe"judged on its merits, not on the writer's prestige. This was accomplished by requesting the contributors to submit their articles unsigned. The work of making this Annual has been exceedingly profitable, not only because fit has given some valuable editorial experience to those ,intimately engaged inits compilation, but also in that it has served as an excellent stimulus to the entire school to write its best. Theamount of material submitted has been gratifying, and we regret that limitation of space has prevented the pub- lishing of many creditable articles. Our showing had been poor were it not for the unceasing effort of our faculty advisers, and this opportunity is taken to thank Miss Trimble, Miss Miller, Miss Mussey, Mr. Avent and Mr. Hannan for their valuable services in assisting in and directing the work. And now we put the Annual into your hands, and anxiously await your judgment of it. To you, dear classmates, we hope it will serve in after years as a tender remembrance of the happy days spent in dear old hiorris. To you, dear schoolmates, we hope that it may prove a spur to more perfect work: that, seeing our shortcomings, you may be ambitious to issue a more admirable volume when your turn comes. G.

P Few teachers and school administrative officers impress them- selves on pupils and colleagues more deeply and helpfully than Mr. Blakely did in Morris. There was hardly a department of school activity that did not feel his infiuence. To athletics he gave of his time as Faculty Treasurer. From its first issue, Mr. Blakely was general adviser and inspirer of editors and business managers of the Annual. As Chairman of the Committee on Library Books, Mr. Blakely did much to develop our excellent library. For several years as Chairman of the Committee on the Senior Class, he directed successive graduating classes in con- servative and wise ways of managing their business. In his rela- tions with school organizations, perhaps the largest single service he rendered was in his general direction of the debating and lit- erary societies. To them he gave much of his time and thought, and the benefits enjoyed by the pupils of the past sixteen years can never be estimated. Mr. Blakely was esteemed and loved by his pupils in Morris. They found in him a teacher broad and sympathetic in his judg- ments of books and men. Studious and scholarly himself, he incited in his pupils a desire for knowledge. Unfailing in patience and considerateness, he encouraged the fainthearted to that per- sistent effort which leads to ultimate success. With teachers like him the problem of instruction in ethics is solved. Such instruc- tion becomes no formal matter, it is the unconscious expression of a life characterized by "self-knowledge, self-reverence, self- controlf' Mr. Blakely has a very large place in the hearts of his former colleagues. They liked his optimism. His face, his words, and his behavior under all circumstances made strong the conviction in every heart that "Cod's in His heaven, All's right with the worldf, They liked his wise conservatism, too. His counsel 12 GILBERT SYKES BLAKELY was sought in matters of courses of study, of school policy, of departmental management, and of individual perplexities. And the advice he gave was invariably sane and wise. In a city and in an age of self-advertising and of educational quaekery Mr. Blakely was never misled by spectacular or insincere exhibitions of any sort. And the secret of it lies in the character of the man. Through the perspective of a term's absence, "We see him as he moved, How modest, kindly, all-accomplished, wise, With what sublime repression of himself, And in what limits, and how tenderly 5 Not swaying to this faction er to that, Not making his high place the lawless perch Of wing'd ambitions, nor the vantage ground For pleasure, but thro' all this tract of years VVearing the white flower of a blameless life." ll UM all ,W .WWI t GIZZUUQS to the Evander Childs High School, the new High School of the Bronx. May she wax strong and become a power in our midst for culture, efficiency, and high standards of life. Shoulder to shoulder with ilflorris High School may she carry the banner of education higher and farther until every boy and girl of our city has drunk deep and freely at the fountain of learning. 13 lfi'lllllWllllllm,,.

To-nightf' addressing the gun, 'iyou and I will do a great work. In a few hours, school-spirit will be no more." 'A few minutes later saw Charles, gun in hand, walking swiftly towards Morris High Sehool, its towers and spires dimly outlined against the dark sky. The wind whistled wierd y around it, and the trees swayed gently, their leaves rustling as though turning in their slumber. Charles saw and heard nothing. Lightly sealing the railing, he took his post at a window and watelied for the ghost in whose existence he now fully believed. What was that? His heart beat loudly. Surely that was a tall white spectre in the center of the room! He quickly brought the gun to his shoulder, put his finger on the trigger, and- f'What are you doing!" came sharply. The gun flew out of his hand, his shoulder was gripped in a viee. Rage at being frus- trated filled his heart, and Charles struggled blindly. "No use, you rasealfl said the gruif voice of the blue-coat, 16 THE QUEST FOR SCHOOL SPIRIT 'fI'velCharles Ross! is that you? What are you doing here?" exclaimed the ofHcer. Charles, no less astonished at Ending himself a prisoner of his old friend MacDonnel, shamefacedly told his story. A gale of merriment greeted his recital, and Charles, somewhat nettled, asked curtly, 'fWhat's the joke?,' When his laughter had somewhat subsided, the other returned, wiping his eyes, "I release you, but take my advice, Charles. Go home and don't go hunting any more school spiritsll' On the morrow, Charles gravely decided that school spirit was not a ghost. But if it wasn't a ghost, what was it? The mystery was still to be solved. "I wonder," mused he Fe-1 4iv-2', R ,N I I "if 'spirit' could mean l l liquor? If it does, where l 1 5 4 T can I buy it?

They were mocking him through this daring young scamp. ' "Get out of here!" he roared. 'ADO you think you can insult me,-me, a respectable waiter in Morris for five years! Clear out, orf!" His threat was choked in his spluttering rage. Bewildcred by the storm he had brought upon himself. Charles sought safety in the deserted corridor when he soon quieted his feelings. 'fFor, after all," thought he, Hllve failed to get school spirit, and that is all that matters to mef' 'iHo, there, Ross, what did you mean by asking for 'a bottle of school spirit,' " called Brown, coming up behind him and grinning. HlVIy! but wasn't he madln and he chuckled at the remembrance of the scene. 17 fu... .N bw THE QUEST FOR SCHOOL SPIRIT "Well, what does school spirit mean, anyway," retorted Charles. '4School spirit! Don't you know that!" UNO, I don't. I wouldnlt ask you if I did." 'KSchool spirit is -" hesitated Brown,e "Oh, yes! If a fellow throws paper on the floor, or breaks the campus rules, and you should stop him, why you would have school spirit." HIS that all it is! I'll get it this very day, then." And Charles disappeared, leaving Brown to gaze after him with a vague misgiving that his lame explanation would cause more trouble for his chum. The next day, Ross appeared with a discouraged countenance and a black eye. "This," he explained to Brown, pointing to his eye, "is the result of yesterday's quest. I give it up. I have failed three times." And with a sigh, he went to his seat. wk PIC Pk It was graduation.

He has worked with a will, has taken an active part in both our athletic and literary associations, has done his best to help keep up the Morris standard, and has always stood up for the square honest deal. It gives me great pleasure to present this token of our affection to Charles Ross, a true son of Morris, and a worthy example of Morris school spirit." 18 THE QUEST FOR SCHOOL SPIRIT ln a storm of applause Charles went to the platform, dazed. The rest of the day was like a dream,-the congratulations, the hearty wishes and farewells, and then the final dispersion of the graduates. Once in his room, Charles opened the tiny box. There, spark- ling in the sun's last ray, lay a beautiful Morris pin, the souvenir of his happy Morris High School days. He looked up, and addressing the old flint-lock, said slowly, with a half-comprehensive smile, "And I had it all the while!"

A corpulent unabridged should be consulted frequently with a view towards changing small words into unusual polysyllablcs. An article written according to the foregoing instructions resulted in this: "During the course of my matutinal recitations, the pedagogue who instructs me in the noble tongue of the Quirites, summoned me to his august presence, and animadverted compcndiously upon the irrefragable fact that I had not evinced any anomalous transcendency in the studyg indeed, quite the reverse. Being endowed with a fair measure of perspicacity, I most naturally anticipated severe parental objurgation, coupled, perhaps, with subsequent events more dire and mortifying, if I would make known this intelligence at my habitation, so I circumspectly forbore doing so."

Suddenly he raises his eyes and strangely enough, they rest upon the portrait of the stern founder of the Pyncheon house. What! is it possible that Judge Pynchcongthe hard, unflinching man, who believes in nothing supcrnaturalfcan it be possible that Judge Pyncheon sees a man, clothed in thc apparel of a laborer, stepping forth from behind the portrait?

Therefore, the day after, homework had he none. But as he arose at ten minutes before nine, decided Loquacious to "bluff," SCENE I. The secretarg's ojice in Corris High School. Loquacious Nerve enters with a haughty strut. Miss Move: Why are you late? Loquacious: What? I? Late? Miss M ox: No, not very, very lateg only twenty-five minutes. Tell me why you are so late. Loquacious: Late? Yes, Yes-YeswIt was in this manner, or to use the words and epithet- Miss M ox: Come to the point, will you? Loquacious: Very well. Here is the reason: As I did not shake the sleep of the just from my most humble lids until the hour was nearer nine than half-past eight, this beauteous morn, and as I did not concentrate enough velocity into those organs which give me the power of locomotion, I was unable to arrive at my destination with as much rapidity as I otherwise would have been able to do. Therefore my lateness. Miss M ox: Have you finished? Louqacious: Oh, no! Will this soliloquy, although ten- Miss M ox: 'Tis enough. Two weeks in the late room. SCENE II. Five minutes later.

There are a few things about to-dayis translation which I know not. 24 BLUFFING IT Jlr. Wyne: Nothing unusual. But what about your written homework? Loquacious Qafter noting that the period bell would ring in three minutesj: The present infinitive means "to, plus the verb," therefore Hdicat eos faceren means "he says them to make," but that does not seem to be correct. So having expounded my theory and hypothesis, will you not use your coneentrativeness and convert this dilemma into a comprehensible statement? Mr. Wyrie: Yes, I Will. You have not studied your grammar for had you, you would know all about the indirect discourse. Therefore, one zero. You have not prepared your translations, for the Whole passage is translated in the notes. So you get an other zero. Thirdly you receive another sphere for not giving me your written Work. And finally you may come to see me after school for the rest of the week, for Wasting the time of the class. Loquacious: But my presence is required in the late room at two-thirty. Mr. Wyue: Very good. I have a class until a quarter past three. Come to me after that. Period Bell: Dong. SCENE III. A German room in the Corris High School. Loquacious Nerve sealed.

I was late and had no home- work, so I gave excuses, first to that urbane Miss Mox, then to that sarcastic Mr. Wyne, and finally to that relentless Miss Branke, and just because they did not comprehend the com- prehensive ability of my comprehension, and as I did not attempt to make my comprehension more comprehensive to their com- prehensive- Charles White: Duck, here's Mr. Benbigh. Mfr. Benbigh: Nerve, your devotion to your work is of such a character that I must request you to sever your connection with Corris High School for the present. You will understand that this action excludes you from membership in any athletic associa- tion of the school, and postpones indefinitely the day of your graduation. Loquacious: Oh, ye Fates.

E were returning from Sporks,.a small mining ,,,i town in Nevada, to Reno, a distance of about ii, four miles, in order to get the early train east. The night was dark and dreary as that in story. i " The hour also coincided with that of the fairy tale, as it was near midnight. The narrow mountain road, which was hardly more than a foot-path, was shaded from both sides, as it cut through one of the most thickly wooded tracts in the Rockies. The sky had that smutty gray and black appearance which foreboded a storm, at least so it looked to us, when we got a glimpse of it through the foliage roof above us. The day had been exceedingly hot, and rain was predicted for that night. Our fears seemed to be warranted, for at intervals, a low, ap- parently far-off rumbling could be heard, which increased the tenseness of the situation in that close, stuffy, badly lighted, incommodious, dragging coach. But the weather was not the cause of our extreme discomfort. The day before, a reward had been offered for the capture, dead or alive, of the most notorious highwayman in the west, who was known to be in our vicinity. He was known to run any risk for the success of his undertakings, and stage coaches seemed to be his specialty. In one instance he disguised as a passenger, another time he, with the help of another ruffian, so silently and quickly removed the driver and the latter's armed companion from the top of the coach, that the passengers were entirely ig- norant of what had happened, until they felt the muzzles of revolvers cooling their foreheads. The district through which we passed was known to be the most dangerous vicinity in that part of the country, and that four-mile ride was fraught with peril g for not only every turn in the road, but the entire way, presented exceptional opportunities for the highwayman. But how were we to know that he was not one of those men sitting opposite us, or that the driver or his companion was not one of the robber's band, only waiting until the coach reached a certain spot to open the door to the rest of the gang? So the situation was one of most intense terror for each individual passenger. The slow dragging of the horses made us feel that we should get out and walk, until we ventured to look out into the night, and then even the dreary interior of the coach seemed pleasant to us, compared with what we saw. Each time the animals stopped in this slow march, for fear of falling over some unseen 27 - A FRIGHTF UL JO URNE Y preeipice in the darkness. NVe thought the end was at hand. Each time We heard that distant sound of thunder, we thought of the robbers and the tramp of their horses, and every time we heard the sound of the driver's voice, it seemed to us like an order to halt the coach. If one of the other passengers happened to glance in our direction, we felt if he were considering what disposition to make of our bodies. No one spoke, silence reigned in the coach, and therefore every sound from outside sounded like the explosion of a bomb. Even the rustling of the leaves on the trees, which we eould hear through the half-opened window which was supposed to admit some air into the coach, suggested our doom. And so we sat, rigid and breathless for almost two hours, which seemed two eternities, and the first free breath that es- caped any of us, accomplished that feat when we again felt the solid ground beneath us, and saw the lights in the railroad sta- tion at Reno. If we had not been too frightened, we might have appreciated the humor of that grotesque situation, when we saw the driver, his companion, and our fellow-passengers, each with difficulty releasing his suspended breath, after our having pictured them as belonging to every class of criminals that could gain admittance to the Rogues' Gallery!

It was 'T 3 the age of the revival of learning. We were freshmen! It was ia the Latin period. All students of psychology know that queer things are bound to happen in a room where a dead language is being vivisected. More so, when it is the last period of an afternoon class of "freshies." At the time to which I refer, one could hear heavy groans coming from Room 417. It was not the dead language suffering under the cruel treatment of the students-no, it was only a phonographic treatment of Hidein, eadcm, idernf' Everybody joined in the chorus, includ- ing the teacher, whose bass voice could be heard above the shrill tones of the younger ones. Yes, it was a heavy groan, but in a good cause! Tl1c second stanza had been reached, when the door was hastily pushed open and the Principal, accompanied by Madame Garage, the head of the Latin department, entered. Perhaps it was modesty that prompted the music to stop so abruptly. This was the first visit of the "Authorities" I leave to the reader's imag- ination the effect of it upon the room. Madam Garage took the seat which the teacher offered her- and began knittingwher brows. The Principal also seated himself in a position where he could hear Qand seej a few recita- tions. When he had heard a few, he advanced and took charge of the class. Madam Garage still sat knittingvher brows. 29 A TALE OF TWO SYNONYMS The first victim was the heaviest boy in the class, who was sent to the board to translate a sentence. Strange to say, he succeeded in this task. He showed his relief by smiling, an action which registered itself without difficulty upon his hearty countenance. Madam Garage still continued to knit-her brows. Then came a girl, who had the reputation of being able to recite Hqui, quae, quod," without the slightest pause between the singu- lar and plural. She succeeded in translating the assigned sen- tence, " The man works diligently" into Latin. She used the word "vir" for "man," Madam Garage did not stop knitting- her brows. The Principal then discussed the word "vir" and asked for another Latin word meaning "man," The girl answered, "Homo," At this point, the Principal wished to demonstrate the fact that many English words are derived from Latin, so he asked her to tell him what word in English referring to man, and having the same sound, was Hhomol' similar to. Before he had time to finish this complicated question, she had answered, "HoboV' It is needless to mention what happened after that, but for the sake of preserving historical records for future use, I will say that Madam Garage knit her brows no more! 1- , u .sal , 5 rg, :1 ,, ,, Jgiie .

"Cage, car-oh, elevator, that contrivance in which every- body rides with the lame, the halt and the blind. Reaching the Morris lunchroom of great renown, the Visitor made his way slowly through a sea of girls to the boys' side with but few mishaps. He successfully reached the lunch counter among the first few, how, he never could explain to his stay-at- home Martians afterward, and taking his cue from his neighbors loudly demanded creamed chicken, stretching forth his hand to receive it. Now it happened that at that very moment Our Football Hero was eagerly defending one of his plays. f'Now you see, Binks," he explained, "it was like so-." With a leap Our Football Hero sprang on the Visitor from Mars, and the Visitor went down, clutching wildly at the fellow nearest. When the Visitor emerged from the melee, he found himself in the last row, out of sight of the counter. And thus the poor, battered Visitor sighed, 'tVerily, the first shall be last." About ten minutes later the Visitor from Mars had secured a. eroquette. On the paper which he read before the various learned societies of Mars, the Visitor termed this mysterious concoction, the Morris Students' Last Hope. It must be said he devoured it mournfully, the while eyeing his neighbor's creamed chicken with considerable envy. Slowly, painfully, the Visitor climbed the stairs, and crept into the quietest place obtainable, namely the Auditorium, where orators in embryo are tried out on a long-suffering audience. Comfortably ensconced in a big, leather chair, on the platform, the Visitor closed his eyes with a murmur, HPeace, perfect peace." He lay oblivious to his surroundings, but dimly conscious of the noise which waxed louder in the corridor without, but dimly con- scious of its cessation. Suddenly he was rudely awakened from his blissful revery by a weird sound which he failed to connect with anything within his knowledge. "Hark! hark! The lark at Heavenls gate sings," was rendered in several keys, forming a perfect discord. . This was the last straw, the Visitor from Mars precipitately fled. As he flew away towards that Arcadia of peace, Mars, we saw the departing Visitor lean from his aeroplane, and we heard him murmur, "Pax vobiscum-sed-nunquam rursusf' CAROLINE V.

L. 35 3 EGIJIZU jl"DlJlTl CUZUITHZII U11 ggffflllfllw 3 Q HEN the writer was still in the convulsive stage of deciding upon what course to take at College he would have been relieved of many trouble- some doubts had he received a letter or other communication from such a source as the New York State College of Agriculture at Cornell. It is with this point in view that this brief article is written, although the qualms with which it is penned are many, for it is only too certain that all loyal Morrisites will wade through it if it is allowed to go to press. To begin with, Agriculture is the largest, and probably the broadest course in the University. ,-c,,,,M,,, The course now leads to the degree of B. S. and the holder of such a degree may feel assured that he ranks as high as the graduate of any other agricultural college in the United States. The facilities and finances of "our college" seem to be unlimited, a condition due to the extreme generosity of the State. Our college buildings are now unequaled. VVe have grown from a single department in a little old building on the University campus way back in 1865, where the Hproffsl' and "studes" used to discuss 4' crops" and the weather, and how to make cheese, to an institution having about 1300 students, who still gather around and discuss crops, weather, and cheese, but who also study English, Physics, Chemistry, Geology, Botany, Biology, Farm Management, Animal Husbandry, Farm Mechanics, Pomology, Poultry, Sail Technology and a multitude of other things all with ever increasing appreciation of their practical value in the manufacture of that extremely necessary com- modity, the scientific business farmer. Our agricultural course includes laboratory and field work offering sound practical instruction in all branches of farm operations in connection with studies pursued. Farm land, 776 acres in extent, is owned and 150 acres are rented by the college for educational purposes only. At the western extremity of our campus are our barns-about 370,000 worth of them. Here we keep about 125 head of cattle, bred and developed by the college, a large and fluctuating number of horses of all types, 125 sheep, 10 brood sows of the Cheshire breed, and other farm animals. The cattle are mainly of the dairy type and their stables and the dairy department run in conjunction with them are not often surpassed. There are other advantages both for men and women, such as 36 A WORD FROM CORNELL ON AGRICULTURE free tuition to residents of the state, courses especially suited to women such as Home Economics, and Landscape Art, and also the fine new women's dormitory. Let me add too that the fel- lows contemplating an '4Ag. 'I course should take into considera- tion the fact that the new "Co-ed" dormitory combined with the new cooking course is of no small significance to the man who sees beyond his own nose. In short, there's nothing like it, take it from one who is trying it. I could wish nothing better for my friends at Morris than that they become actively interested in the business of scientific farming. May the representation of Morris High School at Cornell continue to increase. JOHN R. SHERMAN, M. H. S., '11gO0rneZl, '15. .av . '75 - Ibis .first 11.0112 WYHAT will I do gin my Laurie die?

'Qi but as for beauty, ah, welll that is not to be ,wlniiijwzl ,ill looked for in New York-New York with its fl M ? grimyksqualid streets, with its ugly sky-scrapers -e-f ' " "' B and dingy factories, its screaming newsboys and insistent vendors. It seems to lack that attribute which, in our minds, we always connect with beauty of place, repose. Re- pose! and yet it is its lack of repose which makes New York what it is, beautiful, beautiful with the beauty of large cities. It might be very aptly said of us New Yorkers, 'Keyes they have and see not," for around us is a beauty that Hpasseth all under- standing." It is not the beauty of the glowing West with its lofty mountain tops that command us to bow down and worship, nor the beauty of the langorous South with its sensuous music, which holds our souls in thraldom. 'Tis the beauty of living things, of ever stirring life, of seething humanity. 'Tis a beauty that ensnares the soul by its very elusiveness, an intangible sort of beauty which holds us captive, though we know it not. Have we not heard of the traveler in the Orient or among splendid ruins, hearing its mysterious call, the call of the Beautiful White Way perhaps, and hurrying home in answer? Have you ever been on Broadway on a cold, wet night? As you walked dodging umbrellas as dexteriously as you might, did not the glamour of it all seize you, wrap you as in a cloak, and lead you on, dazed and bewildered? The scurrying newsboys, insinuatingly crying, "Times?" in your face, Bohemia let loose, with its strolling lovers, unmindful of the rain and slush, did it not all fascinate you? And the lights, the wonderful lights of Broadway, multiplied in the falling rain, did they not hold you spellbound? And perhaps you met the smiling gaze of a passerby, and perhaps you smiled back, drunk with the wonder of it all, for the moment yourself in Bohemia. And those skyscrapers, is there not a beauty in their very ugli- ness, immense monsters climbing nearer to God? And did you stop right before a 'Lmovie" theatre, with its alluring posters and inviting warmth? Did you watch the faces of the eager crowd before it, mostly comprised of ragged urchins and careworn men? Did you see the greedy hunger depicted in the faces of the 38 "KNEW YORK THE BEAUTIFUL" urchins, hungry for the romance and warmth which their poor little impoverished lives so sadly lack? Perhaps you were lucky enough to be on the spot when the peal of a factory gong announced the close of the day's toil. Did you watch the faces of the swarming multitude, boorish boys and saucy girls, careworn men and pale, listless women? Were you not struck by the pathos of it, and was there not a sad beauty in it because of its pathos? Perhaps you followed in the wake of this humanity let loose, followed it to its destination, Home. As you passed the miser- able houses, with perhaps a 'alittle mother" standing on a door- step with a puny babe in her arms, waiting to welcome home one of the pale listless women, you felt a sort of queer feeling down in your heart and had to swallow rather hard to remove an insistent lump in your throat. Its sadness and gladness lend New York a peculiar charm, such as only an artist can do justice to, and by making it live on a canvas, open our eyes to its beauty. ADELAIDE BRVFTAN, '14.

Q Q T is only natural that students gathered under ! ts! one roof and having the same ambitions, should W' ' ' from into societies. Evidence of this may be , found in the fact that forty societies have been it ,T formed in Morris High School to further the in- wmmh terests of students 1I1.Pl1I'Q AI't,.TJ01H9SJD1C and ' T T " Practical Art, Pure Science, Political and Social "WV ' F"t""f Science, Literature, Foreign Language and Ath- letics. The girls, as well as the boys, participate in athletics and have formed an athletic association. Aside from the physical gain a student receives in athletics, and the intellectual advantage of discussions, practice and re- search, one must also consider the social side in Morris. There is a social side to Morris, for have not the girls of the senior class entertained the girls of the freshman class? Do not the different clubs convene to entertain and treat their fellow students and the faculty? Are there no class functions? No school reunions? The mere fact that there are over one thousand members of the school interested in Morris Clubs, shows that there is a side to Morris in which there are no books and no examinations. It is with surprise, therefore, that We say that less than one third of the enrolled students have taken advantage of the opportunities offered by the Morris Clubs. lVe sincerely hope, that the time will come when the students, realizing the physical, intellectual and social advantages of the societies, will belong to at least one of the organizations.

As a result, the Morris High School Association was organized. All teachers, graduates, and students who have attended two years or more, are eligible for mcnibership. The formal establishment of the association took place at the annual reunion, Jan. 5, 1912, and since then, the association has grown steadily, the present membership being about five hundred. lt has presented the school with an "Honor Board" upon which are inscribed the names of the graduates who stood highest in scholarship. It has also established a scholarship fund of which a part was used to aid a student on her way through high school. Besides the annual reunions, the association also gave a dance last spring, which was very successful. The next reunion will be held on Friday, Jan. 9, 1914, at the High School.

To another school organization such a loss would prob- ably have proved fatal, but the Goodwin, with its large member- ship not only lives and thrives, Qan hour spent in Room 204 on Friday afternoon would convince you of that beyond all other testimonyl but presents every indication that it will outstrip its achievements of the past year. And, be it known, that year was THE GOODWIN LITERARY SOCIETY - 52 THE GOODWIN LITERARY SOCIETY in every way phenomenal, both in internal harmony and in inter- society standing. Although we have lost by graduation two of the three debaters who won the Alumni Trophy in the last inter-society debate, a wealth of fine material is being revealed by the frequent debates on topics of general interest, both prepared and impromptu, which are a feature on our programs. Carrying out the plan of previous terms, our program committee has chosen the general topic of Modern Literature for the term's work. This topic is being elaborated at each meeting by essays, debates, and readings, until, at the end of the term, each member who has been present and has taken part in the discussions will have a comprehensive knowledge of the subject. The success of the play entitled HA Masque of Culture," pre- sented by the Goodwin in the auditorium last year, has led us to plan the giving of another play which we hope to present before the school shortly.

The club devotes itself to dramatic study exclusively. The meetings are spent alternately in programs and in dramatizing plays. At present, the play which is being studied is "The Taming of the Shrew," and it affords great pleasure to the mem- bers. ' The officers are :- President .......... ........,..

BATES 53 Ghz writers' Qlluh THE Writers' Club is probably the newest word in societies in the school. It fills a long-felt want that hitherto existed among the students of Morris, who confess a literary ambition. At every meeting an original paper is read by one of the members, and criticized from various stand-points,-plot, style, and diction. The work is extremely beneficial as it not only shows the student how to write a better story, but it keeps his ambition to write fresh in his mind all the time. Moreover, the meetings are ex- traordinarily interesting, for a student always likes to hear how i is THE WRITERS, CLUB his fellow student writes, and a writer enjoys nothing' more keenly than having his work judged by his peers 5-if it is good, he likes to hear it complimented, and if bad, he wants to have his defects pointed out. The societyls proceedings are informal, parliamentary procedure being subordinated to literary work. To Miss Normile, the society's censor, are due the members' thanks for time spent and for effort expended in guiding the -criticism of the stories. -Chairman. .... ....,......................

Things began to hum early, however, and the club has built up as strong an organization as it had during any previous term. The programs this term have been well prepared and delivered, some of the topics debated being t'Governor Sulzerls Impeachment Trial," the "Mexican Situation" and the "Municipal Campaign," As usual the Civics Club's straw vote was a success, about fifteen hundred registering and twelve hundred voting. 59 THE MORRIS CIVICS CLUB The trips and excursions planned for the future should prove an attraction to any student who Wishes to join.

W HITMAN HOPTON THE MORRIS crvrcs CLUB 60 ti V261 MSSQL xg :fer -6 ' NE of the most important topics in the educators, J g world nowadays is that of Hvocational guidance." S It is being generally conceded that not enough I attention has been given in the past, during the P W!! period of elementary and secondary school life, L to the questions,-'4What shall I do when I f ' leave school?',-and, 'tHow shall I prepare for ,J my life work? Am I doing anything toward that f ,E , end, now?" Q But though most educators are united on the 3 efi'5 importance of "vocational guidance," they are - - divided as to the method to be employed. Some maintain that educators can advise, almost choose for a pupil the work he will be best suited to perform in the world, others state that the wiser way is to widen the pupils, knowledge and deepen his interest so that he may be enabled to make his own choice. To this latter class the faculty of Morris belong. It has been their aim, first, to encourage the pupils, whatever is to be their future life work, to seek as much general education as possible that being a necessary foundation for success in any field, and second, to collect and place at the pupils' disposal as many sources of information about vocations as possible. ' Consequently, a "vocational guidanceu committee among the pupils, was formed last term by Miss Knox. With her aid and Miss Hathaway's kind supervision, the Misses Sadie Perlberg, Carolyn Parker, Sylvia F lasch and Caroline Cohen-the members of the committee-succeeded in making a classified catalogue of the pamphlets and books on vocations, which are in the school library. They also gathered and mounted many newspaper clippings relating to various occupations. This term the com- mittee is continuing and enlarging the work already begun and it is their hope that their effort will help students who have here- tofore given little thought to their future, to learn more about the worldts work and perhaps even choose vocations for which they are best fitted. 61 of' Moms if NCE CLUB pp LAST June, in the ninth year of its existence, the membership of the Morris Science Club was considerably reduced on account of the graduation of most of its members. But this was no cause for its breaking up, and the beginning of the fall term saw us with over twenty enthusiastic fcllovxs at our first regular meeting. Our membership is steadily and speedily increasing. It cannot be denied that there are plenty of boys in this school who are interested in modern science. Such boys are urged to THE MORRIS SCIENCE CLUB 62 MORRIS SCIENCE CLUB join. In our activities we do not limit ourselves to any one par- ticular science, for in our discussions we treat of chemistry, biology, physics, electricity, mathematics, physiography and astronomy. The only requirement of a new member is that he should be really interested in some particular science, about which he will give us "a talk" at one of the meetings. Our meetings are held every other Tuesday, in Room 114, at a quarter to three, and are very interesting and instructive. Beside the lectures and discussions at our regular meetings, there is another important feature of the club. Whenever pos- sible, we visit factories and commercial houses, where we gain an insight into the manufacturing processes of to-day. These visits are also very instructive and entertaining. Our object is to realize our motto, that f'Science is the Law of the Universe." All boys who desire to learn, in an interesting manner, of the relation of modern science to our daily welfare, are welcome to this club.

This organization was founded April, 1912, by Mr. Schaum- loeffel and it is, in most part, due to his excellent censorship and valuable advice that the club is so prosperous. The Aero Club meets every Wednesday in Room 214. Interesting talks by masters of aviation and members of the club enliven these meet- ings. In June, 1913, occurred the second annual exhibit, which was enthusiastically attended by both the students and the faculty. There were about thirty models on exhibition,-a striking contrast to the four which made up our first exhibition. Many embryo aviators brought their various models to compete for the silver and bronze medals awarded by the club. Mr. Pyle acted as chief judge, and in that capacity awarded the much coveted prizes to Walter F. Brady, 221 pointsg Carlton F. Bogart, 215 points. Mr. Pyle was assisted by Mr. Denbigh, Mr. Shultz, Mr. Skeele and Dr. Sohon. In the coming year, it is the ambition of the club to construct models of man-carrying machines instead of racers.

Besides playing for the weekly assemblies, the orchestra is always ready to assist at the meetings of the various societies, and the debates and reunions that add a social side to the school activities.

THE Morris Agricultural Club Was organized June, 1913, to further the interest of our students in agriculture. While our membership is small, the enthusiasm shown predicts success for the organization. At the meetings which occur every Tuesday in Room 206 interesting and enlivening programs are always presented. All boys who are interested may become members of this club.

But in spite of the large number of entries, the games were run off without any delay. The excellent management was the result of the good work of the Indoor Meet Committee, Paul Keough, chairman, under the direction of Mr. Skeele and Mr. Lipshitz. It would be difhcult to say which was the most in- teresting number on the programme, as nearly all the events were closely contested. The special feature of thc evening was the Inter-Collegiate One Mile Relay Race which was Won by Ford- ham University, the captain of which team being Ecliffe, a former Morris boy. Another interesting race was the Freshman Inter- class Relay, there being eighteen teams in this event. Some excellent time was made in several of the events and spec- ial mention should be made of the splendid work of Keough in the mile run and Callahan in the High Jump.

Of the fifteen trophies presented for competition, Morris won eight. In the Whitney Round-Robin Sub-Target Tournament, in which thirteen schools participated, our first team took second place, being beaten by Bryant. The second team defeated every team against which it shot, thereby winning the P. S. A. L. Sub-Target Second Team championship of Greater New York. The biggest invitation shoot since the inauguration of rifle practice in the High Schools was held at the 71st Regiment Armory under the auspices of the Morris High School Rifle Club. The individual prizes that were offered for competition were valued at over flB100.00. Among the prizes were rifles, pocket-knives, hunting-knives, ammunition and innumerable other requisites for the boy interested in rifle work. Success in the management of such an event consists in hours of hard labor, Mr. Mann's services were indispensable and the team wishes to take this op- portunity of expressing its appreciation. We won the Dicges Plaque for second teams, the Invitation Trophy, and took second place in the Du Pont Rifle Club Match and the New York Evening World Match. In the individual events Levenson won first place in Class B and Clark won first place in Class C. At the Sportsman's Show held from February 27 to March 5, 1913, Morris made a clean sweep of the team events winning the five trophies offered for competition to the High Schools of Greater New York. The matches were shot with the 22 calibre rifle at a distance of 50 ft. in the prone and standing positions at a bull's eye VZ inch in diameter. Thirty five thousand rounds of ammunition were used in the tournament. The Standard Bearer 83 THE RIFLE TEAM Match was won by a score of 1,412 to Clinton's 1,392. In all the matches Clinton was our only serious rival. The New York State Championship match, the oflicial Indoor Rifle Champion- ship team event, was won by a wide margin. The team members received their "Mls.l' The Peter's Match was won by a score of 933, beating last year's record by 21 points. Our next victory was in the Winchester Cup Match. In the Du Pont Match our first team took second place, playing "second fiddle" to our own second team, which won the match by a margin of 7 points and beat last year's record by 12 points. In the individual matches we won two first places and three second places. Pickett won the Win- chester Match, and Kerr won the Remington Match. In the N. R. A. Interleague series of matches, open to the United States, we took third place. These matches were held weekly and lasted about three months. The next match, the Astor Cup Match, was for the United States Championship. We took sixth place with a score of 946. Through the efforts of thc members of the Rifle Club we were again victorious in the competition for the Wingate Cup, open to all schools in Greater New York. We had 44 sharpshooters and 103 marksmcn. Great eagerness was displayed on the part of the Rifle Club members to compete for the N. R. A. silver and bronze watch fob medals for indoor sharpshooters and marksmcn. THE RIFLE TEAM 84 THE RIFLE TEAM The following won medals: Sharpshooters: Mr. Mann, Starke, Reppert. Marksmen: Braunstein, Kerr, Dugan, Hoffman, Condon. Although we Lost several of our team members by graduation in June, 1913, we still had a team the following September that was capable of maintaining the Morris Standard. The first big event of the new school year was the second outdoor military shoot, held at Peekskill, where the New York State Rifle range is situated. Carfare and lunch were given by the P. S. A. L. There were three team matches. The Du Pont Match Cfirst place for first teamsjg The Remington Match, Cfirst place for second teamsj, and the Simon Uhlman Match Csecond place for first teamsj. The matches were shot at 200 and 500 yard distances. Our first team took third place and our second team took fifth place. We won six Outdoor Junior Marksmen medals. In the individual events Morris showed up very well. Condon won the outdoor championship with a score of 23 out of a possible 25 at 200 yards in the prone position. He thereby won a gold medal. Cf the other nine individual prizes offered, we took three :-Daly, 4th place 5 Reppert, 8th place, Coffey, 9th place. The teams of 191344 are grateful to the oflicials of the Second Battery for permitting them to use the Armory. Our victories are not won solely by the team, for we are greatly indebted to Mr. Mann, our coach. It has been through his efforts, perseverance and splendid coaching that we have been victorious, and that the Morris RiHe teams have become so well organized. The boys cannot thank him sufficiently for his co- operation in the rifle work and it is with much regret that we are brought to realize that he is not able to give us his help any further. To Mr. Theobald, our new coach, we extend our hcartiest welcome. We will give him our most earnest support and we wish him success. RIFLV A TY "' 85 9 l if eine Eyurris Iliifle Quan .V THE season of 1912-13 proved to be a very successful one in rifle shooting at Morris. Through the increasing efforts of the members of The Morris Rifle Club, the interest in rifle shooting has been maintained at a high pitch throughout the year. The results of the efforts are shown by the large increase in the num- ber of marksman and sharpshooter medals, won by Morris boys, and the success of our rifle teams. Several of our members have left the Club and entered institutions of advanced education, where they have already proven their ability of successfully arousing interest in rifle shooting. During the past year the club held several open meetings at which different experts ad- dressed the members on some phase of rifle shooting. At one meeting the club was very fortunate in having Col. Tewes, a member of different United States rifle teams, emphasize the necessity of personal training and incessant rifle practice for all who hope to become experts. On February 7, 1913, the 'fWorld" Invitation Shoot was held and the DeWitt Clinton Rifle Club won the City Championship, Morris finishing second. The greatest victory of the year was won at the Sportsman's Show when the Morris Rifle team captured six firsts out of six team events. At this time all members of the Club qualified, for the Junior Marksman medal, thus showing the result of our systematic and individual practice. During June, 1913 the Club held its sixth annual handicap sub-target shoot. All members of the Club participated and the competition was keen. The silver medal for first place was won by Rescorl and Coffey received the second prize, a bronze medal. On the evening of June 23, 1913, the Morris Rifle Club held its first annual dance at the Burland Casino for present and alumni members, Dance orders were printed by the Morris Printing Squad and music was furnished by an orchestra. Dancing was enjoyed by all, including a number of the faculty. The affair proved a great success socially and all are looking forward with great pleasure to a dance in June, 1914. As one reviews the work of the Club for the past five years, one cannot overlook the uniformly superb results obtained by the 86 v THE MORRIS RIFLE CLUB Club, not only in winning medals and championships, but also in maintaining an enthusiastic interest in this work throughout the school. Such phenomenal results can only be obtained by unceasing efforts and hours of well directed labor. We are in- debted to Mr. Paul B. Mann, the organizer of the Club, who for the past five years has been contributing physical as well as mental energy that Morris might maintain high standards in all rifle work. The Club takes this opportunity of expressing it's appreciation and thanks for the invaluable services rendered the Club by Mr. Mann. Mr. Mann felt it necessary to resign in September 1913 as active coach of the riHe teams and as Club adviser. Mr. Theo- bald has the earnest support of the Club in his new undertaking.

Three members of the team iff , , ' were to be in school the next spring. But we were doomed to disappointment. When the ihgm k M reports came out, it was found that Harold j'i.aMg.1tfI1,ith-.:,,, ..t1fiil'i"y,lSg Cohen, who was a member of the team for two years, and who had never suffered defeat, was ineligible. Wigdor and Algase, however, made up the double team. A single man of Cohen's calibre was required, as the double team was intact throughout the season. Nevertheless, three single men were whipped into shape, and our hopes were slightly raised. Our first match was with Townsend Harris. The situation became more encouraging after that match, as we defeated them 4-1. But the next week things were reversed. Curtis beat us by the score of 3-2, the double team only succeeding in winning. This match showed the need of an experienced single man. So the season passed on, with our team scoring only one more victory, that over Commerce, score of 3-2. We were then defeated by Stuyvesant and Clinton. The feature of the season's work was the brilliant playing of Wigdor and Algase. Comment can also be made upon the steady playing of Fertig. This fall, a novel tournament was held to de- cide the championship of the school in both doubles and singles. It was one of the largest tournaments held in the school, there being forty-one contestants. The results of the tournament were, that H. Cohen was victorious in the singles and H. Cohen and A. Algase in the doubles. We hope that with three veterans, and such material as was produced in the tournament, we shall, 88 TENNIS THE MORRIS TENNIS TEAINI in 1914, be able to put forth a team in the field that Will win the Championship of Greater New York, as Morris has done three times. VVe Wish to thank Mr. Peterson, Mr. Pyne, and other members of the faeulty, who assisted in the forming of the team. The members of the team were as follows: W. Falk, J. Levine, J. Grubman, Sub., M. VVigdor, Capt., L. Fertig, H. Starkman, J. Folkoff, Sub., A. Algase, Mgr. The eleetions for 1914 were as follows: A. Algase, Capt., L. Fertig, Mgr. . R . 89 r- X . E .Q .

SKEELES efforts to have as many of the boys as possible participate in basketball, were Nei P fully appreciated, when the mtersectional basket- ,S1 , mth" Yiw iiy ball tournament was introduced, or about XX thirty teams entered in competition. Each section had a round robin tournament. The N I",--Q winners of each section then engaged in an elimination contest. The quintet of 7-S con- sisting of Cinader, Schultz, Pietri, Ginsburg and Smith, displayed splendid team work, and by consistent playing in passing and shooting carrie out the victors. The class of 4-1 was a good second. Their courage and fighting spirit were the chief factors of their success. Miss Bournels aggregation finally subdued Miss Baer's representatives, in a well played and hard fought game by the score of 17 to 11. gf These inter-section contests gave a splendid opportunity to obtain material for the inter-year teams. Candidates for each team came out in such large numbers that it was very difficult to select the first squads. In consequence of such good material the quartet of teams exhibited clean, fast and aggressive basket- ball. The Seniors started right out and defeated the fast Sopho- more five in one of the most exciting and thrilling contests ever held on a Morris court. The final score was 14 to 13. The result of the game was undecided from the moment the whistle blew for the start of play to just before the close. The Sophomores were again unfortunate, for the Juniors took them into camp by the 90 BASKETBALL close score of 23 to 22. Both teams were evenly matched and the score itself indicates what a wonderful game was played. The Juniors and Seniors were now left to play for the champion- ship and it was a very dillicult problem to pick the winner. The students turned out in large numbers to see this contest and much enthusiasm was shown. In the first period of play the Seniors were leading by the score of 8 to 6. But in the second period the Juniors took a brace, and by a flash of lightning play overcame the Seniors by the score of 19 to 13. Capt. Erwig, Andes, Grill, Paltsitz, Manly, Brown and Norman, members of the champion- ship Junior squad each received a silver medal awarded by the Morris Athletic Association. The Freshman, although they were given a handicap of ten points, were powerless against their older and heavier rivals. Mr. Skeele will continue his crusade on 10012, participation in basketball, by trying to arrange for a series ,of inter-team games in addition to inter-section and inter- year. dtbe Lust fllibnugbt SEATED onc day in my study PQI was working hard for some verse To put into this Annual In diction pure and terse. I knew not what I was thinking, Or what passed thru my brain But I hit upon some brilliant thought That made me forget my pain. It overcame strife and sorrow Just that one peerless line, It blotted out the sadness Of the days of 'tAuld Lang Sync." It would have made me known in All schools from coast to coast, And every one in the country Of that great poem would boast. I have sought but I seek it vainly That one "Lost Thought" divine, It would have made me famous, That illustrious poem of mine.

The soccer outlook this year seemed exceedingly gloomy, for there were only three veterans left from last year's team. Matters were still Worse, as the team did not have the services of a coach. Manager and goal-keeper Peltin, took up the task of coaching the recruits, and by strenuous practice, a team was Whipped into shape that beat Clinton by score of 1-0. Our next game with the championship Manual team, resulted in a defeat for Morris by score of 3f1. But, Phoenix-like, We rose and surprised the undefeated Curtis team, by playing them to astandstill in a scoreless tie 0e0. Morris next defeated the strong Stuyvesant team, in a closely contested game, by the score of 1-0. Morris has still to play Erasmus, Boys, Commerce and Com- mercial, and by the outlook from our previous games, it seems that Morris will finish either first, second or third in the P. S. A. L. tournament in which there are ten high schools represented. Among those who deserve special mention this year are, Captain Saltaformaggio, Mersky, Label, Grossman and the Tinsley brothers. Manager Peltin deserves special mention, for playing a great game between the uprights, and for taking up the task of coaching the team. He also very successfully managed the team. The line-up this year is as follows: Goal Peltin CMgr.j C.F. O'Kane R.F. lX'lersky R.I. Saltaformaggio CCapt.D L.F. Label L.l. W. Tinsley C.H. Grossman R.O. Brown R.H. Bandes L.O. H. Tinsley L. H.

Last, but not least, we wish to thank both Mr. Bergman and Mr. Skeele, for the interest they have taken in the team. 92 THE SOCCER TEAM As little "ones," we did essay Our high school studies to displayg XYQ hauled ai heap of books to school, Anil knew their contients, rule by rule.

THE Football season of 1913 has been one of the most successful seasons that Morris has ever experienced. A team was developed out of an exceedingly small squad by the efforts of Mr. Kennedy of New York University. Cut of a possible nine games the team won four, lost three and tied two, thereby proving itself worthy of bearing the name of the "Little Giants." In our first game we held Flushing to a score of 0f0. Two victories followed, for we defeated both Mt.,Vernon, 12-0, and Yonkers, 7-0. Our first defeat came at the hands of Commercial by the close score of 7f6. Curtis has the honor of having defeated us in a very un- satisfactory game on our part, the score being 13-6. By reason of this defeat, our showing against Commerce, our rival of cham- pionship laurels, was most pleasing. After having been scored on quite early in the game, Morris came back with a fight that held the score to 7f0. A 70-yard run by "Billiel' Erwig, a 40-yard run by f'Tommie" Manly, the spectacular tackling by Sokolower and the strong steady defensive work of Capt. Huggenwig should be recorded as noteworthy. We then went to Peekskill where we played the aggregation of the Peekskill M. A., showing them that they were no better than we. The score was 6-fi. In this game we were minus the services of four regulars, including Capt. Huggenwig. With the confidence and fight gained from this game, Morris came back to the city and defeated DeWitt Clinton by a score of 3-0. This is the second time Morris has been vic- torious over that school, and it was because of a kick from place- ment by "Brickley" Stone that Morris was again enabled to do so. The game with Stuyvesant was also a victory and because it was, we are in line for championship laurels. The score was 9-7, and between a touchdown by "Billie" Erwig and another sterling 94 TEAM THE FOOTBALL FOOTBALL boot by "Brickley" Stone, during the last three minutes of play, We redeemed our defeat at Stuyvesant's hands last year. The Winning of this game makes it possible for Morris to be tied with Commerce for the championship. If Clinton defeats Commerce in their annual game Thanksgiving Day, We will be entitled to rank ahead of Commerce. This is how it happens, this year Clinton defeated last year champions, Manual Training by a score of 15-0, Manual beat Commerce 7-0, Stuyvesant tied Commerce, Commerce defeated us 5 now if Clinton defeated by us, defeats or ties Commerce, Morris may rightfully claim the championship. Financially, the season is the most successful Morris has ever had. Through a ticket selling scheme football was used to boom the A. A. Our total receipts, deducting all expenses, including equipment, coach and games' expenses, will be, approximately, 3115. In behalf of all those connected with the team, Manager Paltsits wishes to extend many thanks to Mr. Shultz and Coach Kennedy for their excellent services for the team. The line-up:- L.E., Guidone, Weinheimer R.T., Sokolower L.T., Schvveidle, Storch. RE., Graeb, Appel.

Relay Team, especially, covered itself with glory. The season began with the New York University Interscholastic meet, in which many of the strong high and preparatory schools competed. Morris took fourth place. After this the team was much strengthened by the addi- tion of Bonaparte and Kelly. In the next meet, held by Bar- ringer High School, Morris came in second. The next triumph was the winning of the greater New York Championship by defeating our worthy rival, DeWitt Clinton, whose team had beaten many of the other schools in and around New York. Following this, came the Princeton Interscholastic meet which was probably the largest held in this section of the country. At this meet Morris not only won first place, but the P. S. A. L. record of 3 min. 33M sec. was equalled. The team closed the season with flying colors by winning first place at the P. S. A. L. Relay Championship, at the Brooklyn field. The 100 lb. Relay team also deserved its share of credit by coming in first at the P. S. A. L. Novice Relay Meet. The members of the championship team were Finley, Kelly, Bonaparte and Miller, captain. Other notable performances of the season were the winning of the 100 and 200 yard dashes by,Bonaparte. These performances are specially meritorious in that the record was equal ed in the first event and in the 220 the remarkably fast time of 22 1-5 seconds was made. This not only broke the record, but estab- lished a mark that is likely to stand for some time. Miller, captain of the team, also deserves much pra'se for his season's work, notably the winning of the half mile at the P. S. A. L. outdoor championships, and taking second in the P. S. A. L. Indoor games. To Mr. Lipshitz, the coach, and Hedley, the manager, much credit is due for the successful season. - Finley was elected captain and Hedley, manager for the coming year. 97 C JN I N , ,, yy G , wk - vm ml XX H xi f ' 1 X S , 1 Q' "i X.

Y Dolv1rwo'An ALTHOUGH this season in baseball has not been as successful as the preceding one, much credit is due to Paul Keough for the excellent management. The team promised well, for most of 1912's best players remained in school. Owing to the fact that the star pitcher wanted to study and to the ineligibility of a few more, the team had to be made up, mainly of recruits. They did well, however, and finished the season Hstrongf' Praise is to be given to Captain Dineen, Davidson and Gordon for their excellent playing. The team elected Gordon to captain them for the season of 1914. The team takes this opportunity to thank Mr. Evans and Mr. Lewis for their coaching. Manager, P. Keough. Captain, J.

Treanor. The latter was elected to manage the first team for 1914 in recognition of his services. The team lost only one game and that was lost, owing to the fact that the two star players, Coffey and Hutchings, were drafted into the ranks of the first team. The results of the important games are: Morris 19, Clinton 3, Morris 2, Commerce 1, Morris 3, Townsend Harris 8, Morris 10, Fordham Prep. 7. The line-up is as follows: 1st B., Hutchings, Latour L.F., Carrol 2nd B., Schulman ' C.F., Shea 3rd B., Wilkes R.F., Fordham S.S., Schaffner C., Goodman, Treanor P., Latour, Coffey, Bodenstein Teacher in charge ............,..,............ MR. THEOBALD THE BASEBALL TEAM 99 QLtu55 Qlluuntrp IT was rather disappointing in the beginning of the season to find that only two Veterans remained on the Cross-Country Team To add to this, there was no coach to develop a good team from the recruits. Taking these facts into consideration, the team made a fine showing. Commerce was defeated by the score of 24 to 31. In a triple meet with Boys and Commercial, Morris took first place, the score being Morris, 34, Boys, 40, Commer- cial, 25. The team did not make a very remarkable showing in the Columbia Interscholastic Run due to the fact that only new men ran. In the P. S. A. L.

As the aim of this association is to gain all-round physical development, the athletic activities are divided into four groups. The first of these groups con- sists of swimming, tennis, horseback riding, ice skating and walking. The second sub-division is made up of sports requiring team Work, such as basketball indoor baseball, field hockey and ring hockey. The third group consists of dancing, and the fourth of sports such as relay racing, shuttle relay, potato relay and others. A student joining this organization is required to choose only three of these groups to do special Work in. When she has received eight credits from each group she is awarded a medal Pi 4 11551 li, A X Morris High School, all of which are both in- teresting and helpful, but the one from which the girls derive the most benefit is the Morris Girls' Athletic Association. This is a branch ssoczmo 1 , A gg, 4 fl f f fff ffj ul V I 1 f ' 4 M Y. , mn, by the Girls' Public Athletic League. Alihoilghiitliis one of the 101 GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION newest organizations, it is becoming one of the most important very rapidly. But aside from the fun and the medals, every girl would be very much benefited by joining the organization. In the iirst place the girls are brought in closer contact with each other, and with their instructors, especially in the walking, swimming and horseback riding. In as large a high school as the Morris High School, there are always a large number of girls who are unacquainted. But through an association like this, a girl is able to find out which of the girls enjoy the same sports as she. Moreover it benefits the girls physically. The outdoor sports develop them, and make them strong and healthy, and conse- quently happy. The indoor games of ball and dancing make them supple and graceful. Some may think that they haven't the time to enter into these activities. But every girl should find time for some out of door exercise. It may take some time from lessons, home duties or recreations, but it will prove beneficial and therefore worth while. As a result of physical development will come mental develop- ment, for the mind is dependent on the body. The boy or girl who has a clear quick brain is always a pretty healthy individual. So it can be seen that we must develop the body in order to obtain success. Are there not a great many of us, who are neglecting these opportunities of having a good time and of gaining physical development? ,elk 'iv 2 ,L l Q71 . . my 'H MMM S0 My .,.-, Q' U,-' Mx A 102 K 0 i l PI I A l f N SWK, K I -X4 ef i -I-1 i 3 A Nl 'X ' Q' "" 7 "On with the dance!

THE girls of the Annex have taken a marked interest in athletic activities during the past year. Hockey is a popular sport, and the game is played many afternoons on the greens of Central Park. Basketball is drawing many to the gymnasium on Thurs- days. Various teams have been organized and are now preparing for a final contest. Although swimming had excited much en- thusiasm during the early part of the term, many have now turned to the airy, fairy sport-dancing. Miss Butler has organ- ized a dancing class, much to the delight of the Terpsichorean enthusiasts, who meet every Tuesday afternoon. The prevailing spirit of enthusiasm in athletics is due largely to the energies and unselfishness of the physical training teacher, Miss Butler, and to her, the girls offer their appreciation and thanks.

U0 W5 The exercises were opened by the President, if Alfred B. Cornell, who welcomed the audience ff in an address which was short, but to the point. qi A talk by Mr. Denbigh followed, touching on A the present-day value of high schools, and closing with an announcement of the New York University Scholarship Winners. The presentation of the Alliance Fran- caise Medal by Mr. Charles Moran and its acceptance by Miss Citrin, the winner, attracted more than usual interest. Julius Weitzner gave a brilliantly executed violin solo, which was received with great applause, and repeated requests for an encore. The Class Prophecy, cleverly written by Max Ginsberg, was read by Miss Elisabeth Bristol, and was remarkable for its orig- inality. The most conspicuous feature of it, next to the painful personal allusions indulged in by the author was a toast to Mr. Denbigh, through which the whole school stood as a tribute. The Class Play, "Uncle,'l a farce in three acts, was presented as the second half of the Program. CAST OF CHARACTERS Uncle Bootle ...............,.......................
