,WHEN we began Work on our tenth Annual, a number of re-
forms and innovations were proposed, and certain of them were
adopted. ' 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
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.

W ILBERT SYKES BLAKELY, teacher, head of
department first assistant, first alternate to the
principal in Morris High School, and lately

School is a conspicuous example of promotion
won by merit For sixteen years Mr. Blakely

Morris and endeared himself to such a degree
to puplls and teachers alike that it was a sacri-

larger service of organizing and directing a new

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-
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
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."

s the day to twilight fades,
And silently comes the night,
A sweet thought fills my being,
And my mind's eye views this sight.
I see my "Alma Mater,"
A structure grey and tall,
A vision of grandeur rare,
Four towers topping all.
The days that there I spent
I see in a dream so true.
Defeat, and Victory dear,
Commingle in that view.
I gaze, but the vision's gone,
Like grey mist in the air,
Borne away like a beautiful song g
Disappearing, I know not where.

over the mantle. This gun was Charles' confident, and to this
faithful silent friend, he poured out his heart.

old Morris! 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.

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.

A roar of laughter arose from those near by at this unusual

were mocking him through this daring young scamp. '

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.

"And I had it all the while!"

THEREJS a song of praise for the hero,
VVho has gone through the thick of the fight,
And has come out at last the victor,
Yes, loud praise to this conqueror's might.
And again, bright applause for the statesman,
'Tis his due for his service as one
Who, with sense and worth as his weapons,
Great good for his country has done.
You may hear them praising the poet,
For he brings forth the beauty in life,
And lifts man's heart with sweet music,
From despair in this world of strife.
But let me speak praise of one other,
Who, through hardship and fortune adverse,
After two long hours of battle,
Has conquered his Latin verse!

And patient under fate,
But ever striving upward,

To burst the binding chains,

To victory ere long.

who instructs me in the noble tongue of the Quirites, summoned

transcendency in the studyg indeed, quite the reverse. Being
endowed with a fair measure of perspicacity, I most naturally

subsequent events more dire and mortifying, if I would make

JUDGE PYNCHEON is sitting in the great ancestral chair looking
fixcdly at his heavy watchg but his thoughts are far removed from
that ancient timepiece. Can Clifford tell him anything definite
about the deeds to those vast, rich lands in the East? If he can
wrest this secret from Clifford, how can he best obtain, by fair or
foul means, the estate from its present owners? With such great
wealth at his disposal will he not be able to bribe the most power-
ful politicians in the state? NVill not Governor Pyncheon then
become a reality? Finally, how can he get rid of Clifford without
drawing the slightest suspicion upon himself? These questions
are running through Judge Pyneheonls mind.
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

SITUATION: Loquacious Nerve had been to an affair the night before.
Therefore, the day after, homework had he none. But as he arose at ten
minutes before nine, decided Loquacious to "bluff,"

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. A Latin room in the Corris High School.
Enter Loquacious Nerve.
Mr. Wgue: Well, well! Look who comes to midst! Have you
written your homework?
Loquacious: Why, good morning, good morning, Mr. Wyne.
There are a few things about to-dayis translation which I know
Jlr. Wyne: Nothing unusual. But what about your written
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
Mr. Wyue: Very good. I have a class until a quarter past
three. Come to me after that.

Loquacious: Why surely! Without any miscomprehensiveness
of your ques-
M iss Braiicke: Stop, stop! Why did you not report to me this
morning? Sprechen Sie Deutsch.
Loquacious: Ga-ich-ich-sind-Well, my dear Miss Branke, in
as much as the epithetical phraseology of the no doubtw
Miss Branlce: Werden Sie Deutsch sprechen?
Loquacious: Ga-and as I was about to state, the mediocrity

to come to me every afternoon this week and next.
Loquacious: But I have to stay in with other teachers until
Miss Branke: Then come to me after that.

School. Loquacious and friends sauuteririg in the hall.

Charles White Why thy gloom, Nerve?
Loquacious: I have hard luck. 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-
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

Winsome maid with glowing eyes,
A score of years have kissed your head,
Years of youth's bright paradise,
But childhood sweet is not all dead.
It lives in golden memories
Of happy hours with playmates gay,
And all the sunshine melodies
That lingered through each year-long day.
And will you ever let it die,
This dream of childhood and of heaven?
No, hold it just as sacredly
At sixty as you did at seven
Still build your castles in the air,
And dream your dreams of a to-morrow.

. 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
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
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
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 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
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.
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
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-
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,
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!

Visitor found himself next to something, resembling a large
squirrel cage. Out came Baedccker.
"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
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'

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
There are other advantages both for men and women, such as

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.

,WW W ,EW YORK, the beautiful! Does it not sound
lil A ly startling and strange, bewildering and untrue?
Y' 'lll'f1f'l1qh Enya. fill YVe are accustomed to think of our New York
f'Wfu,'m Jl,1H as just a place, a sort of centre where one may
Q, J get learning or a good time, or almost anything,
.,.' '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-
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
"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.

A . 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.

IN the fall of 1911 a committee of teachers and graduates was
formed to make plans for an association, which would include all
those who have been at Morris lo11g enough to become its friends.
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.

IN the list of the Morris graduation class of June, 1913, may
be found the names of no less than seventeen members of this
society. 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

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.

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
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.

Bourne, who was called away by other activities. 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

' 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.
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
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
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.

OUR Alma Mater has now a new and Hourishing organization
to offer her sons and daughters. This is the Morris Biology Club,
a society formed to promote an interest in biology as applied to
civic and domestic hygiene. We shall study such topics as the
fly and mosquito pests and do our best to aid in their extermina-

benefit may be gained by their proper separation.
The Biology Department has most generously granted us the
use of the Vivarium for our exhibits. There you may see the

ANOTHER year finds the Morris Aero Club still actively en-
gaged in pursuing the knowledge and science of aviation.
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-
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

HIS year's orchestra shows new faces, but many
of the familiar ones are gone. Most of the new
members have had previous experience in the
orchestras of the public schools from which they
came. VVhile violins predominate, We are for-
tunate in having as new additions, a clarinet and
horn, as Well as retaining the two cornets and the
drummers, who do so much to add rhythm and
variety to the stringed instruments. 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.
A feature of the last concert Was thc Schumann piano eoneerto
played by Albert Parra, who was admirably supported by the
orchestra in the difficult accompaniment.

The Morris Glee Club of 1913 showed its ability in dramatic
as well as musical fields by producing an operetta with the June
concert, something never ventured hitherto. ln the first part
of the evening, the following numbers were rendcred:4

Part II consisted of an operetta in two acts, entitled, "A New

performances. The sprightly music and witty dialogue were so
well received by the large audiences, that the performers were
more than repaid for their efforts.
The present Morris Glee Club is the result of combining the
former Boys, and Girls, Glee Clubs, and boasts a larger member-
ship than any other club in Morris. All are deeply grateful to
the director, Mr. Tracy, for the time and labor so cheerfully
given in their behalf.

ONE of the most successful Indoor Meets ever conducted by the
Morris High School Athletic Association was l1eld on the evening
of March 8, 1913 at the Sth Regiment Armory, 95th St. and Park
Ave. There were 350 entries and about 2,000 spectators present.
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.

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
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

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
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
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.

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
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.

V T the close of the season of 1912, the prospects
taxi for a championship tennis team in 1913 were
very encouraging. 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
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,

i R. SKEELES efforts to have as many of the
boys as possible participate in basketball, were
Nei P fully appreciated, when the mtersectional basket-
mth" Yiw iiy ball tournament was introduced, or about
XX thirty teams entered in competition. Each
section had a round robin tournament. The
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
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-

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.
Hereafter Death's bright Angel
Will hand me that poem, I guess,
But then 'twill be of no use,
For the Annual will have been to press.

AT the close of last season, Saltaformaggio and Peltin were
elected captain and manager respectively.
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

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
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.

THE TRACK TEAM
ORRIS track team was the most successful that
A has represented the school for several years,
Q ,W although its successes were confined to the
will track events principally The heavy-weight
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.
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

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.

FOR the first time in many years, Morris had a successful
midget baseball team. They were captained by H. Schaffner
and managed by Frank P. 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:

THE BASEBALL TEAM
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. Championship which Morris had
won the last two years, the team finished in second place

HERE are a number of organizations in the

School Athletic League

tion in the Morris High School.
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

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
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.

It is good to have Hgroup activityl' and to learn to adjust ones

full sense of the word, for dancing brings into play all the muscles
of the body. One acquires grace and ease through dancing. It
is also a good preparation for a life in an office, a home or in
society, because confidence is gained in knowing one stands Well

much for the school in this respect, and the remaining one, an

aim of the club this term is purely social, excursions are made to
various points of interest in and about the city. As far as possible
these are reached by Walking, as the club desires to spend as much
time as possible out of doors. Among the meetings planned for

, Q., ,
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.

RUE to the policy of originality which the June
nga Class of 1913 laid out, the Class Day Exercises
Ui were held in the evening, instead of the after-
Q bfifla noon-a thing never before attempted in Morris.

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.

was received with great applause, and repeated requests for an

read by Miss Elisabeth Bristol, and was remarkable for its orig-
