Many people labor under the impression that editorial Work is
arduous. If such persons had had anything to do with the present
Annual, they would have had to revise, if not entirely abandon their
opinion. Instead of being a task, the preparation of this little volume
for the press has been a genuine pleasure. If you, dear readers, can
get as much enjoyment and benefit from the perusal of your Annual
as We have had in its compilation, then you have every reason to be
The quality of the material submitted in response to our appeal
for contributions was very high. So well, in fact, had the contributors
done their work that practically nothing devolved upon us beyond
the rather embarrassing labor of selecting the best manuscripts.
But it would be indeed idle to boast of the literary excellence of
the Annual, if we did not feel that it possesses another very indis-
pensable quality. It has been our chief aim to make the IQI5 Annual
a truly representative publication. We have endeavored earnestly to
make it a paper-not for the Eights or the Sevens or for any other
class-but a paper for every student in Morris.
We shall, therefore, count as Wasted Whatever time we may have
given to the Annual and whatever energy we may have expended in
its preparation, if you, dear schoolmates, cannot say with all sincerity,
"This Annual does represent Morris High Schoolf'
The Editors wish to express their sincere gratitude to Miss Knowl-
ton, lklr. Avent, lVIiss Staelin, and Miss Spencer, without whose kind
assistance and helpful criticism this Annual would never have taken

IS Royal Highness the Tack is a juvenile nail, and
E' as youth always lacks discretion, this accounts for
. i the youngster's not knowing its place and keeping
' it. It is very simple and unpretendmg when viewed
L from a distance, but the closer you come in Contact
with it, the surer you are to feel its presence. It is
one of those instances where familiarity does not
breed contemptg in fact, the nearer you come to it,
the more you grow to respect its penetrating ways.
In an argument, the tack is never otherwise than sharp and pointed,
though unfortunately at times it comes to blows and frequently loses
its head. Anyone who has had dealings with the tack, knows that it
is also very sharp at repartee, especially when hard pressed for a reply.
The display of these characteristics always depends upon the amount
of pressure employed in order to elicit an answer.
Many in this country favor tax on raw material, but few, I think,
favor raw material on tacks. The tax is frequently blamed for the
rise in prices, and this is not extraordinary, since the tack has from
time immemorial had a propensity to cause a rise in things withwhich
it came in contact. Nevertheless, if you are wise, you will never get
"down on" a tack, for it is always sure to take revenge.
Tacks are in season and out of season. Like the if
small boy, they are always around. They select the
spring-time, however, for their grandest assemblies, and a
at that time occur the grandest bawls and the most tr '
numerous "Hops" on record. A little later they take W Q51
up bicycling and frequently enjoy a spin. The bicycle
has a natural tendency to pick up the little fellows when ,
it comes to them, and carry them until it becomes tired.
By walking the Hoor in your bare feet fa well-kept room will
generally produce about three tacks to the square footb you will see
that the tack is a direct contrast to a good joke for the amusement
always begins before you see the point.
It is surprising how much tacks resemble human be-
x ings. They have their ups and downs in life, sometimes
they are very bright and then again they are very blue.
Human beings, however, crave sympathy, but the tacks
do not, and no matter how much you may feel for the
little fellows they are always sure to warn you that you
are on dangerous ground.
A POINTED ARTICLE UN TACKS
Tacks often tax our patience, and the most amiable man living
has at some period of his life hurled invectives at its head, or rather
at its point. Yet it is also true that the rise of many a poor man
dates back to a tack. Many an early spring also owes its origin to
Like all things which have an uplifting influence on mankind, the
tack is frequently derided, but no matter how much you may abuse
it and hammer at it, it always keeps its head up.

HARRY S. BERKOFF, YIS.
THINK it is not unusual for many a Morrisite
to begin his lessons at a late hour, and to begin
them then only if a special inducement demands it.
Being a llflorrisite, I often found it convenient to
forget about mine until it was late. But to-day
my mind was free from such trifles as lessons. I
had prepared them all, and was now perusing at
my leisure that very fine work by Mark Twain,
9 Q entitled "A Connecticut Yankee at King Arthur's
0 Court." Though my feet were not on the table.
N qR',,,,,l,flW and I had no cigar .in my mouth, I felt perfectly
,mllfl,XNml41NXM contented. Everything pleased me, even the loud
,lx',,tiill' My ' singing and terrible piano racket next door.
'E The wise Yankee was just matching his wits
against the Magician Merlin when-a terrible
thought dawned upon me: I had not done my Latin and there would
be an "exam." to-morrow. The innocent book was at once cast away,
and hastily seizing my Caesar, I settled down to work. Like that
famous gentleman whose book I studied, I came, I saw, but unlike
him, I had not yet conquered.
All went well for some time. I had managed to translate some
of the text, master the constructions, and learn the declensions, in
spite of those commendable musical efforts going on next door. But
now the ambitious singers were climbing up to higher altitudes. My
room fairly rang with the echo of their voices.
Still I plodded along and read, "Rogare ut ejus voluntate id sibi
facere liceatf' VVhat could that mean? Putting my hands in my
pockets, I stretched my body in as straight a line as the chair per-
mitted, and gazed at the ceiling as if to find a solution there. But
presently, instead of finding thersolution, I found myself whistling
to the tune played next door. Thunders! What kind of foolishness
was that? I must translate Latin! And with my head in my hands,
and elbows on the table, again I pored over the book.
The singing continued, the piano hammered on, and I kept on at
the grind. Rogare ut-Bang! went the piano and higher rose the
voices. Ah, Caesar was wise. That rogare must refer to the rogues
who raised such a racket. Yes, that is clear. and it could not be other-
wise. Tra-la-la- sang on the voices. Tinkle, tinkle, bang, bang,
bang! answered the piano. I grew distracted.
The Latin letters danced to the music of the laboring artists.
Rogare, voluntate, liceat pranced before my eyes. Suddenly my
thoughts cleared. I had an idea. O, the foresight of the great
TRANSLA TIN G LA TIN
Roman! O, his adaptability to present circumstances! The volun-
tate liceat could mean nothing but to voluntarily lick those aspiring
musicians. Rogare voluntate liceat means to voluntarily lick the
rogues, At last I conquered. My Latin was translated. Now I
could peacefully resume my reading and sleep at night without a care.
GEORGE GREENBERG, ,15.
HAT a day! When comes another?
I Hear the bugles sounding, mother!
See how gaily rides my brother
Off to war!
"See the sun from his sword glancingg
See his plumed helmet dancing,
As his foam-Hecked steed goes prancing
Off to War!
"Now the battle banner's flyingg
No time now for tears or sighingg
Hear the frenzied people crying,
'On to warl'
"On to war and battle goryg
Brother, win a place in story!
On to war and age-long glory!
On to warln
Loud the merry bells are ringing:
Hear the war-Worn victors singingg
Spoil of conquest they are bringing
Back from war.
Hear the soldiers' joyful humming
Rise above the martial clrummingg
But-her brother is not coming
Back from war.

a tramp lying on the grass some distance off, and regarding me with
a sorrowful air. His clothes, as well as he himself, seemed rather
the worse for wear. But what awoke my surgical instincts was his
right trouser leg, which was torn beyond description. What was I
to do? My brain worked overtime, while I pieced clew after clew
together, first the shout, then the auto, and now the man with torn
trousers-suddenly it dawned upon me-the man had ben hit in the
leg by the automobile! Perhaps his leg was even broken! My plan
of action was already mapped out.
I ran to the nearest drug store and sent in a hurry call-not for
the doctor, but for my First Aid diplomag at least I should not be
caught without my credentials. Then I hurried back to my patient
and sent half the people there for doctors and the other half for
glasses of water, according to rule No. 2 in the book. After that I
rolled up my sleeves and the fellow's trousers, exposing the fractured
member. Looking under the heading, "Fractures and Dislocations,
Part 3," I decided to make tests for localized pain and point of false
motiong but when I pushed a pin into his leg, the pain, judging by
his yell, didn't seem to be quite localized, while my jaw was evidently
the point of false motion, his fist missed it by fully half an inch.
Finally I succeeded in piling six or seven park benches on top of
him, and that kept him rather quiet. Meanwhile I seized two
crutches from a crippled beggar on the corner-the fellow ran away
the minute I had taken them-and returned to my patient. Placing
them on either side of his fractured limb, I fastened them with shoe-
strings, the best thing I could secure, and, if I do say it myself, I
made a good job of it, while visions of a Carnegie medal Hitted
through my brain. just then about seven doctors came up and held
a consultation. After undoing the crutches, one of the doctors handed
them to his assistant, with instructions to take them to "uncle" and
raise what he could on them. Then followed various weighty opinions
and arguments. "I think the best thing would be to cut away the
chondropterygius tissue of the femur." "Yes sir," said Ig he had
"FIRST AID T0 THE INJUREDU
stated my opinion exactly. But another M. D. disagreed. UNO," he
pondered, 'KI think we had better perform a subcutaneous appendicec-
tomy," and, realizing the logic of this assertion, I changed my views
on the instant. just at that moment a policeman pushed his way
roughly up to the patient and gave him a kick. The latter screamed
once, then bolted for the open country, not even limping.
I gazed in open-mouthed astonishment until a bystander, who had
been quietly enjoying the spectacle, said, "lVIaybe this will teach you
a lesson. Hereafter don't try to show your knowledge too quickly.
That fellow merely shouted because you were blocking his view."
The crowd dispersed, in laughter. Crestfallen, I received my
diploma, which had just arrived. I gazed at it intently, and read it
over. "And just to think," I soliloquized, "this darn slip of paper
says that I am competent to render First aid to the injured!"

by three friends the previous morning, concluded by addressing Mr.
Hall. f'Frank, Why don't you and Ross go out to beat that to-morrow
morning?" At this, I, Who had been trying to doze off for half an
hour past, rubbed my eyes 'and sat up, all attention. Now, I am an
ardent, if amateurish, disciple of Isaac Walton,-and this looked like
business. lVIr. Hall glanced at Ross, Who agreed, rather half-heart-

difficult for the two of them to get the boat through the surf. This

Half-past nine found me abed with a formidable looking alarm
clock set for 4:45 at my head, my bathing suit ready to slip on, and
a pair of old trousers and a sweater handy, in case of fresh weather.
Rather excited at the thought that on the morrow I was going to
make my first catch of the season, I had some difficulty in falling
asleep. Finally my cot turned into a tiny row-boat tossing to and fro
on a vast expanse of angry waves, While I, leaning over the side,
stretched a wonderfully elastic right arm down-down into the green
billows, feeling about on the sandy bottom for fish. For days I
groped about, but not one could I catch. After fruitless weeks had
passed, I barely succeeded in touching one-it groaned heavily in a
deep, rumbling voiceg another-this one snorted shrilly thrice, still
another-and it shrieked aloud. The snorting and shrieking and
groaning and moaning continued-continued for hours, until a loud,
throbbing r-r-r-r-ing broke the spell. lVIy arm snapped back to its
normal length, the boat became a bed once more, and I sat up, chilled
and cold. But the wierd noises of the night before had had their
foundation in fact, for blast after blast from fog-horns and sirens
of every description, some far, some near, some high-pitched and
shrill, some vibrant and deep, came to my ears from over the water.
Proof positive that the morn was foggy.
ONE FISHY, FOGGY MORNING
My inner man warmed by a cup of steaming coffee, I threw
the sweater about me and proceeded to the rendezvous of the back
porch. Here Hall and Ross had preceded me and were preparing
the bait-about a hundred live "killies" in a pail of water. Hall
went down to the boat-house, Ross and I following in a few moments
with the tackle. By the time we reached the beach, Hall had the
boat on the sand, and then ensued fifty yards of pushing, lifting
and rolling-a matter not to be despised.
Even since we had risen, the fog, instead of melting away with
the dawning day, as we had fully expected, seemed to get thicker and
thicker. From the spot on which we were standing, not a glimpse
of the water would we get, though the pounding of the surf sounded
distinctly in our ears. Then a lively little discussion took place.
Should We go out, and risk being run down by some venturesome
craft too far in-shore? Or should we turn back without making a
try? Mr. Ross was for turning back at once, but Hall summed up
as follows: "We can go right out to the bell-buoy, where there's
no danger of being run down, and then, fluke bite well on a morning
That settled it. Ross got into the boat and put the oars in the
row-locks, while Hall and I, waiting until a wave larger than usual
crashing down on the beach, pushed her out on the returning tide of
seething water. We waded out to the thighs, then jumped on the
stern and fell in. But out little fishing trip was almost nipped in
the bud, for it transpired that Ross was not the man to get a light
boat through a heavy surf. In spite of the impetus our pushing had
given it, the boat's head began to turn, and we all should have had
a pleasant ducking had not Hall literally snatched the oars out of
the other's hands, using some strong language in the operation. He
put her head to just in time to let us slip over, instead of through, a
gigantic green roller which lapped our sides in passing as though
loath to let us go unharmed. Hall continued at the oars, pulling
directly for the buoy, half a mile out, which we heard tolling inter-
mittently through the murky mist.
We reached it without mishap and, throwing out a light anchor
to prevent undue drifting, settled down to the business of the hour.
Our lines were soon baited and thrown overboard, and the game was
on. The tide was running strong, and in spite of the fact that we
had our heaviest sinkers attached, they dragged away so quickly that
very soon the point where the line entered the Water was lost to View
in the mist which hung like a dark pall over the sea.
Two-five-ten minutes passed. Hall had pulled up his line
twice. The first time his bait had mysteriously disappeared, the
UNE FISHY, FOGGY MORNING
second, a small fluke made its appearance. Neither Ross nor I had
a nibble. Suddenly I felt a slight jerk on my line, followed by a
heavy spasmodic pull. I reeled in hurriedly, calling upon Hall to
get a harpoon ready for the whale that I was bringing up, and almost
upsetting the boat in my excitement. So saying, I turned to glance
at Hall in triumph. He was crouched, half sitting, half standing in
the bow, in an attitude of rapt attention-gazing out to sea. Ross
was seated on the middle thwart, like a graven image, with a face
as pale as death itself-listening. Unconsciously my fingers ceased
their nervous reeling ing I stopped and listened, too ......
What was that muffled, indistinct sound? ..... Hark! There
can be no doubt about that-a man's deep, husky voice coming from
an immeasurable distance, like a voice from another world, uttered
the words, " !Stern! 'Stern!" A moment later came a dull crash of
wood, followed by a last wild clangor from the bell,-and there,
fifteen yards in front of us, and becoming more terribly black and
distinct with every succeeding instant, advanced a large craft. Then
we were galvanized into action Hall jumped for the anchor rope
and heaved it up hand over hand. Ross put the oars in the locks and
pulled away like a madman. I stood up in the stern, unmindful of
the rocking boat, and yelled, "Look out ahead!" at the top of my
voice. I whistled my hardest-then yelled again! The black Nemesis
in front of us took shape-the stern of a tug-boat backing away from
the buoy she had just collided with, was but ten yards away. We
redoubled our efforts to make its relentless occupants hear and take
notice. Five yards away the screws of the tug suddenly reversed and
lashed the water into foam. Its momentum carried the now slowly
moving craft another yard-then the narrow gap widened, first slowly,
then more quickly,-and now-the hulk fades away into the mist
and is blotted out.
Well, there is not much more to tell. It would have been fool-
hardy to continue fishing with the buoy broken, so, deliberately and
silently we wound in our lines, dumped the "killies" overboard, and
rowed back. We got through the surf again without much difficulty
and walked home without saying a word. Of course, we were
laughed at roundly for having attempted to go out in such weather,
and our single measly fluke was the butt of the breakfast table
humorists. But I did not tell them that I had almost caught the
largest fluke that had ever existed. What! It would probably have
been another edition of Mr. Hall's under-sized fishling? Ladies and
Gentlemen, I insist that it was a whale!

IYTARY SIBERIA, '15.
A Earls nf Eittle Eltalg
Merrily shone the sun upon the noisy street in the Little Italy of
New York. The street resounded with the deafening roar of skates,
the shouts of the children, and the thunder of automobiles and wagons
which, dashing by, miraculously left them unharmed. Not even in
sunny, Hower-decked Italy was such turbulent gladness to be found.
In the shelter of the corner made where the stoop jutts out sat
little eight-year-old Lucia, nursing a piteous pretence of a doll. Her
raven curls were tumbled over her pale face, and the eyes that fondly
looked at the rag doll rivaled the deep blue Italian skies. Unnoticed
she sat, often turning her eyes toward the merry group near by. She
thought of the time, but a year ago, when she too frolicked as they
did. That was before the scarlet fever had racked her frame, leaving
but a shadow of the former sturdy child. Then, too, her father had
left their cosy home for this crowded place, and friendless but for
her doll and a kind neighbour, she sat in her little corner.
"O, vedete l" cried the scornful Rosina, pointing to the doll. "How
funny." Lucia started from her reverie to see five pairs of mis-
chievous eyes upon her and to hear the jeers directed at herself and
her doll, "Ho, ho! What a doll!" "Did yer buy it on Fifth Avenue l"
"Look at the clothes!" The blue eyes widened with terror, and
when one, bolder than the rest, tried to snatch the doll from her, she
screamed and burst into tears.
A silent but indignant spectator of this scene was Paul, the mer-
riest boy on the block. Though superior to girls and their affairs,
his warm heart championed the cause of the little stranger. Scatter-
ing the girls like a flock of geese, he cried shame upon them, and
they, powerless save in their tongues, hurled defiance at him in the
spiteful manner of girls.
Saved from her tormentors by this brown-eyed Achilles, Lucia
dried her eyes and thanked him in her soft mother tongue. Then
unceremoniously, she hurried the reluctant, bashful hero to her
"babbo," in whose arms she poured out her story. His heart-felt
"Li ringrazio, figlio mio" brought the warm blood to his cheeks as
he took the proffered chair.
Lucia chattered on, but the father's eye dwelled upon the lad's
gaze, which was riveted upon the violin resting upon the table.
Gently setting his daughter on her feet, he rose, took the violin, and
with a careless "Can you play?" laid the instrument in Paul's hands.
Lovingly he laid his cheek on the polished wood, and with a few
notes had transported his audience with him to the calm Venetian
Bay where the sailors call upon Santa Lucia to grant them propitious
Stars. Wonderingly the elder man noted that intense hunger for
A TALE OF LITTLE ITALY
music in the boy's eyes, which gradually softened into dreamy con-
tentment as the music flooded the room.
A few questions served to bring out Paul's story. He lived across
the way with his hard-working uncle, who, though he loved Paul,
could not indulge his musical taste. Of an evening he would play
to himself on the old battered violin, his one treasure, but oh, how
Hat it sounded compared to that of the Signorel
It was a tall womanly Lucia who leaned over the villa gate of her
rose-trellised home as she looked on the fair city of Florence, whose
famous tower gleamed white against the blue arch of heaven. Be-
side her was Paul, now a young man of twenty-two. His eyes were
upon her face, into which the balmy breezes had coaxed some of the
wonted bloom. Softly they talked of the past,-how Paul, under
her father's instruction, had progressed by strides until he could
stand on his own feet, how she, Lucia, had returned to Italy, where
her father was laid to rest in the bosom of his native land, how Paul
had hastened over the Atlantic to join herg how a year later saw
them in their own little home, he making his fame with his violin,
she his companion in the truest sense of the word.
Soon they walk up the little path and sit down on the loggia.
As the glowing west fades into soft twilight and the stars shyly stud
the skies, they are both wafted to their childhood home in the great
metropolis of the New World, on the wings of the melody that
streams from the old violin.

N the rocky cliffs that hem in
That wild, stormy, seething river
Which, to-day, men call the Saco,
Dwelt a sachem, mighty warrior,
And the Great Spirit the Good Father
Gave to him a son, a fair youth,
Blessed by all the Forest Children,
Little Brothers of the Pine-woods,
With the cunning of the red fox,
With the bravery of the great moose,
With the patience of the beaver,
Graceful beauty of the salmon,
But the host of evil spirits
That made wild the streams and rivers
Sought but ever to bring danger
To the great, the wise young warrior,
Till the voice of the Great Spirit
Echoed through the hills and valleys,
"O, my son, seek ye a new land
Where ye shall raise up a people
Evermore to call ye blessedf,
Hearing, then, the youth set forward,
Sought to cross the roaring river,
But the jealous goblins spreading
For his feet a net of rapids
Caught him in their arms and dashed him
On the cruel rocks to perish.
As the sachem, pacing lonely,
On the cliffs beside the river,
Thought upon his son, sped onward,
High there rose a roar of triumph,
lvlocking, scornful, ever vengeful,
"We have slain him! We have slain him'
Then the father, roused, dashed blindly
To the cliffs above the chasm.
But the rock-wall knew no pathway,
And the father, vainly searching,
Cried aloud in deepest anguish
For a road to lead him downward.
Then the precious boon was granted,
With the yawning of the earth-quake.
Lo he stood beside the rapids,
THE LEGEND OF THE SACD
But within the cloven hillside
All the goblin spell abated,
And the waters rested calmly,
Coolly, darkly, in the shadow.
Swift the sorrovving Warrior caught him
Who had been his one, his great joyg
Safe from out the net of rapids
And the dark, still waters, claimed him.
In their arms they bore him smiling
As in sleep, to the far borders
Of the Land of Happy Hunters,
And above him rose the pine-trees,
Breathing in each passing Whisper
Of the Wind that stirs their branches,
"Lies here child of the Great Spiritg
Here shall ages still to seek us
Know by this lone darkling inlet
All the story of our warrior."

LOUIS B. ALLEN, '18
-gr ' -f xi' AST October, at the close of the fourth game of
E the World's Series, when the news was flashed
Q' ' M throughout the United States that the Boston
Q21 Braves had wrested the World's Championship
from the Philadelphia Athletics, there was great
rejoicing in Morris High School. Why? Be-
cause Dick Rudolph had been the chief factor
in the humbling of the Athletics-and "Dick" is
a Morris boy.
Richard Rudolph for "Dick," as he prefers to be called, was born
in Stanton Street, in the lower part of New York City, almost twenty-
seven years ago, but as his parents brought him to the Bronx when
he was about two years old, we may safely claim him as a Bronxite.
After Dickrhad received his premilinary education, he entered
lvlorris High School, where he spent three and a half years. While
still a student in Morris he began to give his attention to baseball
matters and soon earned a reputation as a first-class pitcher.
Although he did give a great amount of his time to baseball, Mr.
Rudolph wishes it distinctly understood that he never neglected his
studies. The high marks that he received in his class-work are the
best evidence of the truth of his assertion.
After leaving llfforris, Dick went to Fordham University to
study law. But a legal career began to appear so dim in comparison
with the brilliant future awaiting him in baseball, that after a year
in Fordham he joined the ranks of the professionals and went to
pitch for the Rutland team of the Vermont Independent League.
From that time on, his rise was rapid. Soon the day came when
he passed through the portals of the Polo Grounds as a pitcher for
the Giants. But that season, "lawn" McGraw was not as clear-
sighted as usual, and he saw nothing wonderful in the pitching of
young Rudolph. As Dick himself puts it, "Because the Giants
were my home team, I wanted to play for them, but they wouldnlt
The Braves soon saw that the Giants, loss would be their gain, and
Rudolph was welcomed with open arms to a place on the Boston team.
And the proof that their confidence was not misplaced lies in the
result of the IQI4 World's Series.
To-day Dick Rudolph is resting quietly in his own pretty little
home in the Bronx, waiting for spring, so that he may again get out
into the fresh air and put himself into condition to retain the laurels
he has won.

LL Europe is at war! All America is at war to
stop the war! Morris, ever on time, lets no
movement escape her. All are given a fair hear-
ing. lf war is the cry of the twentieth century,
war is the cry of Morris High.
The cry is sounded in many keys! The Ath-

The wholesome influence of Morris changes the devastating effects
of war into helpful, instructive elements. All are invited to join these

I. When the bell rings for rapid dismissal, make as much noise
as possible and shove the neighbor next you. VVhile going down-
stairs talk incessantly and give your neighbor a poke in the ribs, so
that he will go faster. Then your teacher will beam on you and
recommend you to the principal as a good boy.
2. When the teacher is out of the room, make a general hulabaloo
and throw spit-balls at one another. Also it would not be a bad
plan to throw pieces of chalk at a target on the board. Board-rubbers
are better, because, being thicker, they will hit the mark oftener, and
besides, they are softer.
3. VVhen you are called on to recite, give your seat a hearty slam,
and make some casual remark to your neighbor about the weather.
Your teacher will be entirely satisfied, and will give you a ten.
4. Always interrupt the pupil that's reciting, so that you can take
a nice trip to the Office. The Office is a nice place, because you will
have nothing to do but stare at the clock and count how many
minutes there are until dismissal.

l There are, this year, besides the Athletic Association which con-
sists of at least seven sub-organizations, about thirty student societies
in the Main Building and the Ilffott Avenue Annex. New clubs
have been formed that meet in the morning to give the pupils of the
late session a chance to participate in our social activities. A few old
clubs, owing to the unfortunate, though necessary arrangement of
sessions, found it so difficult to meet at a time convenient to all mem-
bers, that they decided to disband temporarily, their members, how-
ever, joining kin societies whose time of meeting was more opportune.
The membership of the present clubs was, therefore, vastly increased,
thus giving them a gratifying solidarity. This is desirable, for it
brings the student body into closer communication, gives a unity of
purpose and endeavor, and, above all, increases the school spirit.
Have you ever heard an Alumnus say, HI wish I had joined a
society while at IN'Iorris,', or, "I'm glad I joined the T when at
lylorris. That work I did as member of that club has been a great
help to me, besides, what jolly times we had!"
lvhich will you say when you visit your Alma NIater five years

The Naturalistsl Club was organized in the spring of IQI4. In
the fall of the same year the club was reorganized on a much larger
scale. hlembersliip Was thrown open to all students making an
A or B in Biology, with the result that a large and enthusiastic group
answered the first roll-call of the season.
The purpose of the club is three-fold. In the first place, a definite
attempt is made to study Nature in the open. With this end in view,
several trips are made each term under the direction of the teachers
TH E NA Tl 7R.4LIS TS' CL Ulf
of the Biology Department. Secondly, many interesting topics, which
are not taken up in the classroom, are discussed at the meetings.
Thirdly, the club takes charge of the vivarium, keeping it in proper
order and adding specimens which are collected on the trips.
Although the club has a large membership, there is plenty of room
for those boys who are interested in Biology and who meet the
scholarship requirements for admission. A cordial invitation is ex-
tended to all such pupils.
The oflicers of the club are:

During the year IQI4, the lVIorris High School Association has
increased its field of activity to a considerable extent. This has been
possible because of the interest and enthusiasm of its members, both
of which are particularly necessary to make the .Association a success.
The Annual Reunion was held in the Auditorium on the first Fri-
day in January. The program was entertaining and short, in order
to give old lylorrisites a longer time to visit with former teachers and
friends. As usual, the dancing in the gymnasium was very popular.
Shortly after this the Association had its second large dance at the
Burland Casino. Socially the evening was most successful, but on
account of the small attendance, expenses were barely cleared.
As the primary aim of the Association is, however, to promote the
interest of Morris through definite work of assistance, we feel gratified
that the loyalty of the faculty, graduates and former students has
already accomplished so much. The funds in the treasury were found
to be sufficient to enable the Association to award a second scholar-
ship of 550, under the same conditions as the first, that is, to help a
deserving student who would otherwise be unable to continue his
course at Morris.
A second Honor Board was erected in the corridor at Morris, upon
which the names of those excelling in scholarship will be engraved
each year. The faculty members of the Association have given much
of their time to the preparation of these lists of names
In the spring the Association learned that a new debating trophy
was needed, and decided to present one to the school for the Annual
Debate in June. The trophy was awarded to the Philologian Lit-
erary Society by the president, William Jansen, after a very interest-
ing debate. On this evening the members of the Executive Com-
mittee were told of the excellent work the Morris Service League
was doing. A vote was taken at a special meeting called for the
purpose, and the committee decided unanimously to give the pins,
already selected by the faculty, to the students now in Morris who
are promoting her interests in such a vital way.
With all we have been able to do, the Association is still hampered
by a serious drawback, that of securing good class representatives to
attend Executive Committee meetings. In such a large organization,
much of the business must be transacted by this smaller board. The
importance of electing a representative who is not merely the most
popular member of the class, but one who will do his duty well,
cannot be over-estimated. In order to carry on the work we have
begun, we need especially the support of the younger classes. They
know the needs of hlorris far better than those who knew her as a
comparatively small school. Through the pages of the Annual. we
ask all members and prospective members of the Morris High School
Association to choose carefully their representatives and officers, and
by loyal support to help the Association become a factor in Morris life.

The faculty of the Morris High School had for some time been
working on a plan which would recognize services rendered by the
students to the school and which would promote a spirit of service
in Morris. These efforts culminated last spring, about May ISt,
when Mr. Denbigh appointed 21 committee of five teachers "to suggest
possible methods of securing Zl larger degree of co-operation from
students in our school." The committee, consisting of Mr. Peabody,
Mr. Bogart, Mrs. Falk, Mr. Foster and Miss Franke, held three
meetings and its members reported on the various student Hsquadsl'
in the De Witt Clinton High School, in the Curtis High School and

in the High School of Commerce. As a result of its investigation
and report, the committee recommended that a student organization
be formed to be known as "The Morris Service League." The object
of this league was to recognize faithful service to the school and to
stimulate further service. In faculty meetings, the plan as proposed
by the committee was discussed with a view to eliminate any possible
objections. The plan adopted was that of the committee practically
About the end of May the project was brought before the school,
when Mr. Denbigh asked Mr. Peabody, chairman of the teachers'
committee, to address the assembly on "The Morris Service League."
The scheme met with practically unanimous approval and it was
determined to put the plan into execution at once. Nomination blanks
were sent to the various classes and students were asked to name
such persons as seemed to them worthy of membership in the new
league. When the nominations were turned in, the teachers carefully
investigated each case, and the final election brought forth the follow-

In the Constitution of the League, drawn up by a committee of
League members, the purpose of the organization is set forth as fol-
lows: "The object of this organization shall be to promote honorable
conduct and the spirit of service throughout the school." As to
membership, the requirements are: "That a student be regularly
enrolled in the third or fourth year at the Morris High School, that
he shall have rendered valuable service to the schoolg that he shall
have a satisfactory record in scholarship and conduct." As to nomina-
tion, the constitution states that "Nomination to the League may be
.MORRIS SERVICE LEAG UE
made by any teacher or any student with the approval of a teacher.
All candidates chosen by a majority vote of the committee of teachers
shall be members of the League. The committee may remove any
unworthy member. Those in attendance at school shall be active
members. Those who are privileged to keep their pins on leaving
school shall be honorary members." For the pins we are indebted to
the generosity of the Alumni Association.
Although still in its infancy, the Morris Service League has already
rendered valuable service to the school. We have members delegated
to keep order in the halls and lunchrooms, to take charge of the Ward-
robes, to assist in the library and in the office. Our name has already
spread to other schools, some in other cities, nor is interest in the
Morris Service League limited to this State. We hope that We shall
build up a large organization, eflicient and helpful, and that the time
is not far distant when every student in Morris will be worthy of
membership in the League.
The ofiicers of the League for the present term are:

The lllorris High School Association decided this year to award
a new trophy, to be competed for annually by the debating societies
of the lVIorris High School. In addition to the trophy for the winning
society, medals were also given to the individual members of the
winning team. After a series of elimination contests, the Philologian
and Goodwin Societies were left to compete for the trophy.
The subject was, l'Resolved: That New York State should re-

heartily urge those who, interested in literary work, have not yet
declared allegiance to another club of the sort, to join the Goodwin-

Our roll proudly bears the names of seven active members of the
Morris Service League, and three of the League's honorary members
long ago pledged their loyalty to Goodwin.
Not only.are we distinguished in Service League representation,
but this very Annual has for its Editor-in-Chief a Goodwinite.
As to the future, we gladly turn our faces to the sun, knowing
that thus the shadows will fall behind us, and We shall continue to
make the name of Goodwin a slogan for all that is best in work
We are sure that the devotion of Miss Muller and Mrs. Falk, our
censors of last year, has been a great factor in our success, and we
thank them most heartily for their aid. We regret that Miss Muller
has been obliged to resign this term, for we shall miss her optimistic
spirit at our meetings.

It is with the highest hopes and the brightest prospects that we
enter upon our seventeenth year. VVe now hold the Inter-Society
Debating Trophy, a triumph which has always been our ambitiong
and the first name inscribed on the new trophy presented by the
Morris Alumni is that of the Philologian. Truly, we intend to live
up to our battle-cry of "Alta Petamusf' by trying continually to set
ourselves new and higher standards, ever reaching upward as we
attain our earlier ideals.
This does not mean that you, who have not yet mastered the
intricacies of brief-writing, are not welcome at our meetings. Come
for our sake as well as your own. We desire new blood in our
society, willing workers and eager learners to perpetuate the Philo's
fame as the years roll on. Though we shall give some attention to
literature and dramatics, still our meetings will be devoted chiefly to
the pursuance of excellence in debate. Our yearly short-story con-
test, we firmly believe, will bring forth several talented productions,
as it has always done in the past.

Each term brings a decrease and later an increase in the member-
ship of all societies. To this rule, the Morris Debating Society is no
exception. We have lost many members by graduation, but, Week
after weelc, newcomers swell our ranks, showing that the club
is still a live and active organization in the school.
Our work, too, is going on well. We try to lceep sight of our
goal, to develop the literary ability of our members. At our meet-
ings, which are weekly, we have debates, essays and open discussions.
During the past year we entertained our friends several times in
the library. Miss Knowlton gave all a fine time at the party which
she gave the club. Some of the members represented Shakespeare's
heroes and played their parts well.
We regret that our former censor. lVIiss Knowlton, has left us
because of her school duties in the afternoon. VVe wish to express
our gratitude to her and to show, as far as words can, our regret at
her departure from our midst. We are also very grateful to our
present censor, lblr. Schlosberg, for the interest which he takes in

During the last year especially, did the members
prove their earnest rntentlon to carry out the Object
of the club, namely, that of making good citizens . -
not only of themselves but of all with whom they come into contact.
As a desire had been expressed to study Civics in its broadest
meaning, much of the time was devoted to the discussion of industrial
conditions. Such topics as the work of the Consumers' League and
the study of model concerns, like the Cash Register Company, were
chosen and discussed.
The enthusiasm that recent prison and educational reforms called
forth attested the keen interest that this generation of women takes
in social problems.
VVe members of the club do not mean to forget that we are indebted
to the untiring and conscientious work of our kind censor and adviser,

Since then we have been uniformly successful and prosperous. The
old Clio Bulletin in the library has been well stocked with clippings,
and we have dedicated two new bulletin boards, one in each basement,
on which articles gleaned from the daily newspapers are posted.
We have continued our programs on historical, political and civic
topics, and Mr. Smith has given another lecture for our benefit, the
topic being, "The European War." We have continually endeavored,
and we feel with a remarkable degree of success, to serve the school
and to interest and instruct our members.
Very recently the Clio and the Girls' Civics Club joined forces,
forming the Clio Civics Club, and it is hoped that with the union of
two such Successful clubs will come a year of unparalleled success and
a continuation of the old efficiency of both.

is 'Science is the Law of the Universe," and the endeavor of the
members is to discover how science governs the world of to-day. In
order to do this, they study the application of science in all the modern
At every meeting, one of the members gives a talk on some branch
of modern science. Then follows a discussion of the day's topic and
questions are asked and answered. The meetings are thus made
entertaining, instructive and interesting.
The club seizes every opportunity to visit commercial and manu-
facturing houses, to see how science enters into the workings of the
world about us. An excursion to the Brooklyn Navy Yard and a
visit to the new subway proved particularly instructive. Our next
trip will be made to the Bronx station of the Sheflield Farms Dairy
The plan of the club is to follow a systematic study of the elements
of modern science and their practical application. lf you are inter-
ested, come and join us!

trees of the neighborhood, to rid them of the tussock moth, was part
of its program. The members were also greatly benefited by a course
in "First Aid to the Inj uretlf' and more than fifty received certificates.
Discussions on child labor, adulterated foods and other branches of
biology were held. Another interesting feature of the program was
the delicious spread.

some Work took weeks, but it was well worth the time spent on it.
Sometimes a hurry order is received from the secretary of some
Morris club, then the Work has to be done in a short time. But
whether one hour or many are spent on a poster, it always turns out
a credit to the Art Department and to Morris.
The club consists of members that have unique ideas. There is
Sears, with his large-headed, little-bodied meng Kaplan, with his
queer animalsg Miss Comandini and her cleverly drawn athletic
girls, Schilling, our president, and his stunning landscapesg Bogart,
with his brilliant color schemesg Perota, and his sense of the comicg
Rackoegh, with his wooden soldiers, and many other geniuses Whose
work speaks for itself.
One would laugh to see the mad rush of our Wild-eyed squad of
poster and poster-stamp collectors. This fad, which originated in
Europe, has spread epidemic-like throughout the United States. Mor-
ris has caught the fever,--one fellow has been heard to say that he
would not take 55,000 for his collection! Watch the bulletin boards
this coming term and see if we do not "produce the goods!"

All of the Girls' Athletic Clubs this year are in a particularly
flourishing condition. The membership is large, the attendance reg-
ular, and much activity is shown. The clubs registered are: Miss
Pulvermacher's Basketball Team, bliss Butler's Dancing Class, lvliss
Freestonls Dancing and Game Class, Miss Barnum's Hockey Team.
At lllott Avenue, Nliss llflorris has a walking club that reports
pleasant and exhilarating walks. lVIiss Altbaus and Miss Hazen of
the Main Building have chaperoned the girls this and last season.
VVe hope during the coming year more teachers of academic subjects
will help with outdoor sports, for at no time have we enough teachers
to take charge of all aHairs the girls would like to have.
From now on, the membership of all these clubs will necessarily
increase, because certificates of proficiency in after-school athletics
will be required of all candidates for the position of Junior Assistant
for Summer School, and of teachers in the Recreation Centers.
The Board of lfducation has ordered that only those who have
shown themselves proficient along these lines shall he recommended,
as fewer and more efficient applicants are wanted. To further this
work, and to show a definite knowledge of the subject, bliss Barnum
has agreed to give some special lectures, the notes of which will be
used in deciding a girl's eligibility as a candidate.

Throughout the school term of IQI3-IOI4, six girls' basketball
teams were organized in the Main Building. Miss Dolores Pulver-
macher, who organized these teams and conducted the following
series of games, considered that a round-robin series would eliminate
the element of lurk and determine which team was the strongest in
the Main Building.
For seven months intense enthusiasm and rivalry marked the com-
petition. ln the end a team made up of the lylisses l. Egan, M.
O'Donnc-ll, P. Steiner, V. Kendall, M. Lewis, D. lylooney and A.
Jaeger won first place in the competition for the thampionship of
the llflain Building.
The winning team and the victors in the lllott Avenue Annex
played together as a climax to the seasonls sport. The lliain Building
triumphed each time hy a very narrow margin.

In Europe at harvest-time, on holidays, the young people, mostly
of the peasant class, dance in the meadows, in the barns, on the city
square. These dances are for the most part very simple as to step,
but very vigorous as to execution. They are the expressions of the
joy of the young. Some of them are accompanied by song, some of
them tell a little story.
The first dance learned this year was a little Finnish "Nesting," or
A'Home-Making" dance, in which the young people cut wood, plane
boards, and rush about to serve their friends, who are welcomed with
many bows and much clapping of hands.
During the term we hope to learn a dance from each people,
Irish, Scotch, English, Russian, etc., and we hope to play all the
simpler games in which the basket balls are used, also such old
favorites as all forms of relay races.

Unlike other clubs, the Alacris Debating Society does not fear
extinction because of the members who graduate. Urganized in Feb-
ruary, 1914, by a number of first term students, it has grown rapidly,
and at present boasts of a membership of over fifty. The Alacris is
a self-constituted club and is an example of the constantly growing
interest in debating and public speaking.
Although working under difficulties, holding meetings before school
and only for a short time, we have progressed rapidly. Our frequent
debates have aided greatly in revealing a competency in debating
rarely possessed by a club in its infancy.
Besides debating, we have impromptu discussions, short lectures,
recitations and musical numbers, all of which tend to make our meet-
ings very interesting and enjoyable.
Last term we debated against the second team of the "Harris," the
champion debating society of Townsend-Harris Hall, and, although
the "Harris" team was composed of students of the higher grades,
our team was unanimously awarded the victory by the judges, thus
recording a splendid victory for lVIorris High School. We also held

The most remarkable fact about the Class of June, 1914, is its
size. In all, it was made up of two hundred and ninety-six members.
A class of such dimensions is bound to be active, and that it certainly
was! Always on the alert, its members showed their enthusiastic
activity in service to dear old Morris, in organizing new, and further-
ing the interests of the old societies, and in eager participation of the
social and athletic events of the year. Its reception to the Faculty
was a unique affair and proved to be a splendid success. And as for
the Class Dance, why, we graduates feel that it was undoubtedly the
best ever held. Yet more important than all was Class Day! Victor
-I. Paltsits, the president of the Class of June, IQI4, opened the
evening's exercises with an address, expressing the regrets of the
graduates in leaving Morris, even though eager to take up work in
business or in higher institutions of learning. Mr. Denbiglfs address
followed, and then came the presentation of the Alliance Francaise
medal and the Service League buttons. The novelty of a "Mid-
Summer Night's Christmas Eve" was as interesting and amusing as
was the Class Prophecy. The class play, "Mr. Bobfl by Rachel
Baker, which scored great applause from the audience, had for its cast:

The Athletic Association has had a most prosperous year. Not
only have We had many winning teams, but a larger number of boys
have taken part in athletics, owing to the greater opportunity afforded
them through the various inter-class tournaments which have been
conducted. For the first time an inter-class baseball tournament was
held, under the direction of lVIr. Elkan, which proved very interest-
ing. The usual basketball tournament had over forty teams com-
peting. Other innovations were a handicap rifle match, athletic
meets for the upper classes and one for the first year boys, held on
the school field. The increased interest in soccer led to the organizing
of a second team, which made a creditable showing.
The plan introduced last year, of appointing Athletic representa-
tives in each class section to increase the membership of the Athletic
Association, was most successful, over tvvelve hundred students being
enrolled last term. Nineteen classes had one hundred per cent.
membership and were given banners.
Morris may well feel proud of the excellent showing made by all
the school teams, accounts of which follow.
Many thanks are due to the Faculty Athletic Committee, to the
teachers in charge of the various teams, to the members of the Asso-
ciation, and all pupils who have assisted and encouraged athletics in

At the close of the 1913 season, the chances for a championship
team for 1914 were very bright, three regulars and two substitutes
remaining from the preceding year.
After a few weeks of hard practice, we met the racquet-wielclers
of Townsend-Harris in our first P. S. A. L. match. They fell
before our attack by the score of 5-0. We next met last year's
champion, Curtis. Our doubles were within one point of winning
their match, we were finally defeated, 2-3. Not discouraged, how-
ever, we won every one of our remaining matches. Commerce was
beaten 3-2, Clinton was then vanquished 4-1, and Stuyvesant was
our last victim by the score of 3-2.
The final standing of the teams showed that Morris was tied with
Stuyvesant and Curtis for the P. S. A. L. Championship. Unfor-
tunately, Starkman, one of our double players, was unable to play
on account of sickness, and we lost the play-off by the score 2-3.
The feature of the season was the brilliant playing of Fertig, who
went through the season without a defeat. The steady, good playing
of our doubles combination, Algase and Starkman, was also a big
feature in our fine showing. Folkoffls fine playing, too, deserves
During the fall term two tournaments were held. ln the first,
from which the school team was excluded, Lapinsky came out the
winner in the singles, while Gitnick and Lapinsky won the doubles.
In the tournament for the members of the team and the winner and
the runner-up of the first tournament, Starkman triumphed. We
hope that with three veterans and Cohen, an undefeated member of
the championship team of 1912, together with the fine material
brought to light in the tournament, Morris will, next year, put into
the field a team that will regain the championship we held for four
We sincerely thank Mr. Leuchs and the other members of the

some very keen competition. Fourteen trophies were competed for,
and lVIorris upheld her reputation by winning six of these, Curtis
ln the Whitney' Round-Robin Tournament, both our first and
second teams had the highest aggregate scores, but were beaten for
the titles by losing the most important matches. The first team fin-
ished third to Curtis and Bryant, while in the second team division
we pressed Clinton hard for first place.
At the lnvi-tation Shoot held by Stuyvesant High School at the 71st
Regiment Armory, lvlorris took second place in both the "VVorld',
lllatch and the Du Pont Rilie Club Match, which were won by
Curtis. These matches were shot at a distance of 75 feet with the
At the Sportsman's Show held at lVIadison Square Garden, be-
tween February 2ISf and 27th, 1914, Morris showed her true form
by winning four of the six team matches, and most of the individual
matches as well. The Standard Bearer lwatch was won by a score
of 1,470 to Curtis' 1,392. This broke the record by 58 points. In
the Peters Cup llflatch, the lWorris first team won with a score of
922. The Nlorris second team was second with 917, beating all the
other first and second teams entered. Un the second day of the
tournament, the team experienced a slump, and got fourth place in
the Winchester Match, which was won by Curtis. The Du Pont
lvlatch resulted in a tie between lylorris and Curtis, which was an
absolute dead-lock, each team having the same number of shots of
the same value. Starke of lworris and Zickl of Curtis shot off the
tie, the latter winning, 66 to 65. On the final day, however, Morris
won the most coveted prize of all, the N. Y. State Rifle Association
Trophy, emblematic of the City Championship. The lllorris team
returned a total of 1,821 ex 2,000, which shattered the existing record
by more than 50 points. Curtis was a close second with 1,81 1. The

Edward Geisler was elected captain, and Robert Spear manager of
the 1914-15 team. The first event of the new season was the Out-
door Championship Shoot held at the Peekskill State Range on Octo-
ber 24, 1914. Under comparatively good conditions, Morris won
the Team Championship with a score of 205, which broke the old
record by I4 points. In the Individual Match, Starke took second

The team members wish to extend their thanks to the oflicers of
the Second Battery for permitting them to use the Armory.
Last June, we were very sorry to learn that our coach, Mr. Theo-
bald, who was to become principal of P. S. 89, Manhattan, would have
to leave us. He was an excellent coach, and took great interest in
the team's welfare. To Mr. Smith, our new coach, we extend a
hearty welcome, and he will have the co-operation and support of all
the members of the team.

THE season of 1913-1914 was an unusually successful one for
rifie shooting at the lVIorris High School. Through the aid of the
members of the Rifle Club, students have been encouraged to come

On February 7, 1914, the World Invitation Shoot was held, in
which Curtis took Hrst place and Morris was a close second.
At the Sportsman Show, lVIorris, as usual, secured her share of
victories, winning four first and two second places. ln the Peters
Match our first and second teams secured first and second places,
In the month of lVIay, the Rifle Club held its annual Armory
Handicap Shoot. All members of the club participated, and the
competition was keen, as was evident by the closeness of the scores.
The results were as follows:
Chopin-first, with a score of 386 out of a possible 430.
Condon-second, with a score of 385 out of a possible 400.
Levine-third, with a score of 384 out of a possible 400.
The results of the School Sub-Target Handicap Shoot were as
Specht won the first prize with a score of 109 out of a possible 1 19.
Berkoff won the actual high score prize, with a score of 101 out of
a possible IO3.
On the evening of June 23, 1914, the lVIorris Rilie Club held its
second annual dance for the members and the Alumni at Duryea's
Dancing Academy. The affair proved a great success socially and
all look forward with pleasure to another one in June, IQI5.
As one reviews the work of the Club for the past six years, one can-
not overlook the uniformly superb results obtained by the 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 be obtained only by increasing efforts and
hours of well-directed labor. VVe are very grateful to Mr. Theo-
hald, our able coach, for his incomparable assistance in fostering the
growth of the Club. As lNIr. Theobald was obliged to resign, lVIr.
Smith and lVlr. Shannahan have now taken up his duties, and we are
confident of success under their guidance.

With practically all of the members of the 1913 team, plus Lenton
and Cohen of the record-breaking team of 1912, available for the 1914
team, a good Cross-Country Squad started training in September.
In the first race of the season Morris defeated Commerce with
ease. The score Was: Morris, ISV, Commerce, 50. Nine Morris
runners opposed eighteen Commerce men, yet Morris took the first
seven places, Fleck winning.
The next week, in a triple meet, Richmond Hill defeated us over
their own course by seven points. Fleck, Spear, and Cohen again
made the best showing for Morris. The score: Richmond Hill, 27g
Morris, 343 Boys' High, 76.
In the run held by Columbia University, Morris won back the
beautiful Kirby Trophy, defeating a Held of twenty-seven schools
and virtually acquiring the championship of New York and New
Jersey. Fleck and Spear finished in sixth and ninth places, respect-
ively, in a field of over three hundred runners.
In the Bronx County Championships, held under the auspices of
the North Side News, Morris entered two teams, which took first
and second places, winning the team trophy.
The last race was that for the City Championship. It was held
at Jamaica, L. I. Morris tied for second place,-a disappointment
after such a successful season.

VVith the opening of the soccer season, the prospects of having a
championship team were very bright. Spalter, who had made the
All-Scholastic Soccer Eleven in IQI2 at fullback for Boys, High

call for candidates.
An important feature of this year's schedule was the playing of the

We may well be proud of tying both winners of the IQI2 Soccer
Tournament, the Curtis game and the llflanual game resulting in
the score of I--I and O-0, respectively.
The first setback that we received this year was inflicted by the
Commerce team, which defeated us at the Polo Grounds by a score
of lm-0. From this point on, lVIorris declined. Erasmus defeated
us by a score of IF-O, while Boys' High tied us at 0-0. The hardest
game was that with the Columbia 'Varsity Team. The latter could
only defeat us by a score of 2-0, and later congratulated the team
upon its excellent showing. The Soccer Championship of the Bronx
still remains at Nlorris. The latter defeated livander Childs, their
new opponent, by I-0. The last P. S. A. L. game went to De
Witt Clinton by a score of 2-I.
Throughout the season lylorris scored seven goals to their oppo-
nents' five. llorris finished fifth in a league of eleven teams con-

MORRIS HIGH SCHOOL SOCCER FOOTBALL TEAM
During the season 1913-14, Morris was represented on the cinder-
path by one of the most successful 'varsity teams in the history of
the school's athletics.
The main factor of a winning team, namely, sufficient material,
was not lacking, and the efforts of the track-men resulted in several
Under the managing and captaincy of Harry Tucker and Harold
Finley, respectively, the team won the Senior Relay Championship
at the indoor games of the P. S. A. L. The victorious quartette
consisted of Bonaparte, Erwing, Finley and Schulman.
With the approach of spring, Sydney Milbauer assumed the man-
agerial duties, and William Erwig, the captaincy of the team. The
spring call for candidates brought forth a great amount of material,
and at short notice, the outdoor team was prepared for the coming
A relay team consisting of the same members of the Indoor Relay
Team Won first honors at the games of the Stevens Institute of
Technology, held in Hoboken, N. J., on May 2. This victory was
followed by the winning of the Novice Championship and the Senior
Relay Championship of the P. S. A. L. in Brooklyn on May 16.
Decoration Day gave the National Senior Relay Championship to
Morris, when Balestier, Erwig, Finley and Schulman won that event
in the New York A. C. games at Travers Island, N. Y. The final
victory of the season took place on June 11, in the P. S. A. L. Relay

The 1914 football team was one of the most successful that has
ever represented Morris.
There were nine men from last year's team who reported for the
team this year, and our fine showing is due to Mr. Kennedy's efforts
of the previous year, together with the excellent work this year of
Mr. Emmons of Cornell, whom the squad was very fortunate in
Morris defeated Flushing, in the first game of the season, by a
score of 3-0. Our next victory was over Mt. Vernon, the score
being 9-2. Yonkers was our next opponent, and in this game the
score was 6-6. Two victories followed, for we defeated Curtis,
39-O, and Stuyvesant, 24-O. As usual, Commerce defeated us in
a very close game. One of Commerce's ends was fortunate in secur-
ing a forward pass, thrown by Captain Manly, and in consequence
scored a touchdown. In the last quarter of the game, Erwig scored
Ll touchdown, but failed to kick the goal, thereby making the score
7-6 in favor of Commerce. Peekskill Military Academy was next
in line, and fell before our attack by the score of 25-7. The next,
and probably the hardest game of the season, was with Clinton.
Nevertheless we beat Clinton, 3-O. This is the first time in the
history of the school that Morris defeated Clinton twice in succession,
for we beat them last year by the same score. Plainfield was the last
game of the season.
Credit is due to Captain Manly, Erwig, Coletti, Traenor and
Weinheimer, whose grit and fine playing resulted in the excellent
showing of the team. Mention must also be made of Jansen, Sher-
win, Schweidle and Ellis, who made the line of Morris a stone wall.

lVIorris ended the IQI4 baseball season by winning the championship
of Nlanhattan, The Bronx, and Richmond. In our first game, we
were defeated by the New Rochelle team, by a close score of 6-4.
In our next game, we played the fast Rahway team and were defeated
again by the close score of 4-2. At Greenwich, we won our first game
by a score of 8-7. Playing for the first time for the championship of
the Bronx, we defeated our sister high school, Evander Childs, by a
score of 3-O. This was one of the best games of the season. After
this game, our team seemed to lose its stride, and we lost a close
game to Fordham Prep., Columbia Freshmen and Commerce. None
of these games, however, counted in the P. S. A. L. standing. ln the
Mt. Vernon game, our pitchers, Latour and Meany, succeeded in
holding that hard-hitting team to a no-hit score. Townsend Harris,
Stuyvesant and Clinton were our next victims. We lost our only
P. S. A. L. game to Curtis by a score of 2-O. Hutchings, our cap-
tain, led the team in hitting and was one of the best batters in the
High School League. lWeany's fine work earned him the captaincy of
the season of IQI5. Ar first base, -lack Weinheimer played a stellar
game, as did the rest of our infield, composed of Hutchings, 2b.3
Tinsley, ss., VVincor, 3b. The outfield, composed of Lapinsky, Gross-
man and Lenton, played a steady game throughout the season. La-
tour, our pitcher, did much to help us win. O'Brien, the utility
infielder, was always there, ready to fill in.

G R MEET
The Sixteenth Annual Indoor lVIeet was held at the new Twenty-
sccond Regiment Armory, 168th Street and Broadway, and was a
most interesting affair. In spite of the stormy night, there was an
audience of over fifteen hundred, who thoroughly enjoyed the pro-
gram of events.
There were several noteworthy performances, especially that of
Ballestier in the Half-mile, who, running from scratch, defeated a
large field and broke the school and P. S. A. L. records. Other
records to go were the Shot-put, Finley eclipsing the record long
held by Yule, and the Junior High Jump, Van Leyen clearing the
bar at 4 ft. II in.
The special feature of the Nleet, the lVIile Relay, open to all high
schools, proved exciting and was won by Stuyvesant.
The event introduced last year, the Freshman Inter-Sectional Re-
lay, was most interesting and will always have a place on the Indoor
Nluch credit is due to the active Indoor Meet Committee, con-
sisting of Hedley fchairmanj, Kerr, Boedenstein, Sullivan, Zeigler,

Un March 6, 1914, the annual inter-year basketball contests began.
rl he Seniors, consisting for the most part of last year's championship
junior team, began with a rush and trimmed the Sophs., while the
juniors won an exciting game from the Freshmen. In the second
round the Sophs. beat the Juniors and the Seniors, too, won a victory.
In the final round the Seniors won another game and the champion-
ship of 1914. Captain Grill, Algase, Frischman, Palrsits, Albert,
Loslin, Grumban, and Treanor received medals awarded by the A. A.
Last fall a new event was introduced under the direction of hir.
Skeele. This was in the form of an inter-sectional basketball tourna-
ment. The enthusiasm that this innovation aroused was shown by
the entry of forty-four teams. The tournament began on November
17, 1913, and was completed on January 29, 1914, after ninety-eight
games had been played. The classes were eliminated until there was
a champion team representing each of the eight terms. Then these
champion teams, in turn, played until the year champions were de-
cided. These winners played in handicap games, with the result
that Class VI-4 won the tournament. The winners, Bronfman,
Irwing, Soskin, Albert, Duffy and Horwitz were awarded medals.

THE disadvantages consequent on the crowded condition of our
school and the overlapping sessions show nowhere more plainly than
in the handicap it imposes upon the Orchestra. In spite of the fact
that two rehearsals a week are held, some pupils can attend neither
and others are debarred from playing at Assembly, although three
assemblies must be provided for, which allows at best only a handful
for each. However, the Orchestra is keeping up to its accustomed
form and is winning high praise from school and visitors.

Miss Conlon's portrayal of "Lady Harriet" showed her the pos-
sessor of a fine voice and great dramatic instinct. She was charm-
ingly companioned by the Winsome "Nancy" of Miss Flasch. Jacob
Cohen as "Sir Tristan" proved himself a born comedian, while the
"Lionel" and "Plunkett" of Schulman and Weiss gave ample scope
to their admirable singing and acting. The Chorus managed well
the difficult stage pictures and complicated vocal parts, while the
Morris Orchestra played the accompaniment like professionals.

Last year, as well as the previous ones, spelled prosperity for the
Deutscher Verein. Our achievements were many, though perhaps
not so much in the lime light as formerly. This was probably due
to the absence of the "Kaffee-Klatsch," at which all Morris was wont
to regale itself. Instead, we treated ourselves to Grand Opera. The
entire "Verein', went to the Metropolitan Upera House during the
Christmas holidays and was more than charmed with Humperdinck's
"Hansel und Gretelf' Another noteworthy event of the first term
was the visit of Dr. Laue, the German exchange teacher. His quaint
songs and entertaining stories held us spellbound. VVe, in turn, must
have enlightened him by our keenly contested debate on the respective
merits of beginning the study of a foreign language at the age of nine
or fourteen years.
The loss of seventeen members by graduation in January was indeed
a fell blow. But their loyalty to the "Verein', was evidenced by
their presence at its meetings. President Wadepuhl continued to
deliver illustrated lectures on the glories of the "Vaterland." In
May we again sailed up the Hudson and surpassed last year's memor-
able trip by journeying not to West Point, but to Poughkeepsie.
The "Verein" has always been instructive, most enjoyable and dis-
tinguished for the good spirit among its members. To Miss Franke,
who fostered this camaraderie, is due the success of the "Verein."

But when the twenty to twenty-five girls heard of the delightful
short walks and long tramps to be taken, no one thought of dropping
out. On the contrary, the members expressed deep regret when it
was found they could meet only every second Tuesday. The first
Saturday after their club was organized, these amateur Westonians
spent a very pleasant day tramping the Palisades, working up mon-
strous appetites, and succeeding in suffusing pale cheeks with brilliant
color. The keen hunger of the girls was satisfied about noon by
delicious frankfurters and marshmallows, which they roasted over a
huge bonfire on the shore of the Hudson.

This year the Turn Verein Unter Uns has caused a great deal of
enthusiasm in the Annex. The reason for this is that it is the only
athletic society for boys of the Commercial Course. Practically all
the members of the Senior classes are enrolled. Nleetings are held
every Friday afternoon. At these meetings Mr. Scheib instructs the
members in wrestling, and Mr. Cohen teaches the boys the intricate
points of basketball and indoor baseball. The fully equipped gym-
nasium comes in for its share of popularity.
The members appreciate the benefits of these strenuous exercises
and are grateful for their instructors' help in making the afternoon
pleasant and interesting for them. All give hearty support to the pro-
ceedingsg even the social intermission has its rounds of applause.
After two years of successful training, the athletes of the Annex
expect soon to challenge the aristocrats of the Main Building.

Whzlt does the name Hlrving Literary Society!! mean? VVhy, it
simply means diligent Workers, endeavoring to cultivate a taste for
refined literature, and to broaden their intellectual, social and moral
life. From the wide field of literature, the society has selected for
the tCl'IHiS work the promotion of a keener insight into the lives and
works of the famous American and English authors. Debating is also
an essential feature on our program, which has proved not only
elevating, but exceedingly refreshing. Moreover, some of our mem-
bers have exhibited a talent for dramatics and anticipate an oppor-
tunity soon to show their ability in this line.
No other qualifications are necessary for membership but an unfail-
ing interest in the work, and, of course, a fairly good knowledge of
English. Those who possess these qualities are invited to join us on
any Friday afternoon in Room 310.
Last June our Semi-annual entertainment was held in the audi-

very enjoyable time.

in the commercial world.
We have formed several plans which we consider of importance
in attaining our object. We intend to visit such business institutions
as the Clearing House, the Stock Exchange and the large banks. At
the suggestion of our censor, we are also taking steps to form a closer
bond of union between the former graduates and the present candi-
dates for graduation.
The club takes this opportunity of thanking lN'1r. Williaiiis for
his earnest zeal in our behalf.

THE Local History-Stenography Club has just made its debut in
the lvlorris High School. Under the able supervision of Miss Hagar
and Miss Carey, there is but little doubt that it will continue its
work during the succeeding terms.
The club has a membership of twenty-five girls, almost all of whom
are prospective graduates. Once a fortnight we expect to take trips
to places of historic interest in this city. VVe shall discuss, before
taking a trip, the historic association of the places we intend visiting,
taking down notes in shorthand. By the end of the term we hope
to have a deeper appreciation of our own borough and city.
On the one trip We took we visited the neighborhood of the Colum-
bia University, Grantls Tomb, and the Grave of an Amiable Child.
The object of the trip was to view the vicinity of the Battle of Harlem
Heights. Thanks to the efforts of our program committee, we spent
a most enjoyable afternoon.

The Junior Reporters are now entering upon the tlurd year of their
successful organization under the direction of the teachers of the
Shorthand Department. lllany a profitable and interesting Thursday
afternrzon has been spent by the members of the club. who are now
over fifty in number.
The object for which we are organized is to give such students of
the Senior Class as desire to acquire a higher rate of speed in short-
hand Writing an opportunity for doing so. During the term repre-
sentatives of the club attend lectures, business shows and business
establishments, on which they are required to make a repo1't at the
next meeting. lr is so arranged that each member is at some time
or other a representative of the club.
Besides listening to and taking down in shorthand the reports of the
representatives, we have dictation for the period of one hour. by the
Dictation Committee. which consists of hliss Netter and Nlr. Fleming.
