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 satisfied. 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' -T. M. 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 definite shape. 9 MISS DIEDRICH MISS LIPP ERT , ,uf . Eliarultg Glhangvu Changes in our lylorris faculty are like those in a human face, gentle and subtle for the most part, at rare times sharply sudden. Ninth lvlonth of nineteen hundred and fourteen added twenty to our house- hold of good-will. Their welcome names are below, and we espe- cially greet Miss Lowd, who comes from our strenuous neighbor, VVashington Irving. Hut our losses,-there's the rub. bliss Scharff, Mr. Schaum- loeffel, Mr. Theobald,-dear to the Gallic tongue, the laboratory and the gun team,-have been transferred to other schools. The unbe- lievable has happened when Mr. Pyne, of the Old Guard, no longer fills his many-sided place in Morris. Believe us, friend, they cannot play with you in Evander Childs in quite the same fashion that we used here. The 1897 roll call will no longer be answered by lVliss Lippert, also, who has by unceasing devotion to Morris, won retire- ment. And our well-loved lVIiss Diedrich,-still here in example, still here in spirit,-often here, we hope, in we miss you, woman of inspiring courage, noble soul. Those who come: Mxss Lowu MR. BIRNBAUYVI Miss FERRIS MR. FINK MR. CQAYLOR Miss HARTLEY MR. Hrss Miss HUNT MR. INMAN MR. KELLY Miss LEPERE Miss MCCORMACK Miss MCCARTHY Miss PAGET person,-we greet you, of unbroken cheer, of Miss PRocToR MR. ROSENBERG MR. RITTER Miss SABIN MR. Srkixuss MR.

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. We 12 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 them. 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.

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 14 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. mar 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!

THOMAS MURPHY, ,I5. 15 7+ tw niliirst Aih tn the Ilniurvif' T gives one such a sense of superiority to own a First Aid diploma, I myself am not immune to this feeling, and like to exhibit my profound knowledge at every opportunitv Meditatmg on this most important subject the other dav, I was suddenly disturbed in my reverv by hearing a shout behind me at the same instant an auto whxzzed past Turning angrily I saw fl 1 , - - - 1 . . air ' ' 4 llrlnu in 1 'J ' ' ' , 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 16 "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!" VICTOR R. SCHACHTEL, 'x5.

Our star man was lhlclfarney, better man we never had, N He sure could handle two of yours, and 'notheix too, egad. ' And one and all the men were good except our . full-back Red, Q . He had the grit in 'im all right, but not much i of a head. . . ' 'Twas the last game of the series, and the greatest of them allg The score was tied, the fight was hard, we tus- sled for the ball, gg' VVhen Red, the full-back. in a play the ball out wildly tossed, O we were all against 'im for full twenty yards were lost. Our coach, all white with rage, rushed up to him and said, "Get out, you darn old fool l" and placed another in his stead. And now he's almost there-see! seel he's reached the place- Right near the goal lN'lcCarney fall, and couldn't rise no morel And still more suddenly than that, we saw our full-back Red, Unasked, rush in an' place himself in old lXlcCarney's stead.

Now the talk, by common consent, veered into normal ocean resort discussions on various congenial topics, fluke-fishing among the rest. CFluke, my uniniated 1 In friend, is a species of flounderg habitat, Atlantic Coast from Newfoundland to Cape Hatterasj. NIL Rigler, relating the story of an eighty-three pound catch made 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- edly it seemed to me, but raised the mild objection that it would be difficult for the two of them to get the boat through the surf. This was my cue, my services were volunteered on the spot, and accepted. An appointment was made for five the next morning, and the subject dismisseed. 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. 19 as 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 like this." 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 20 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! EDWARD J.

IYTARY SIBERIA, '15. 23 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 24 ' 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.

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, 26 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."

ALLEN, '18 31 DICK RUDOLPH Eirk llnhnlph -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 let me." 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. 33 mar in :!1l!Inrria LL Europe is at war!

ADELLA MIRCHIN, '15. Wamhg iiintu nn Emu tn Evhanr 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. MAX LIFSCHITZ, '16. 34 I fllll flllllllltr.. 5 l ig ml 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 hence?

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 NA'rURAL1sTs' CLUB 41 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: ' ...SIGMUND LEVY President ................... Vice-President .... .....

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. 42 ALUJIINI 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 MORRIS SERVICE LEAGUE 44 CHARTER MEMBERS OF THE MORRIS SERVICE LEAGUE ZWORRIS SERVICE LEAGUE 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 unchanged. 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- ing results: Sophia Amson David Schultz Alice Bates Harold Bogart Solomon Borochow Irene Choilin Mabel Fitzpatrick Harry Gittleson Alexander Herman Francelia Johnson Harry Kabakow I.

Roland Reppert Edna Schneider Ralph Starke Jacob Cohen Gertrude jaflin Raymond Martin Courtlandt Otis Joseph Sherry Abraham Wincor 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 45 Q .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.

We heartily urge those who, interested in literary work, have not yet declared allegiance to another club of the sort, to join the Goodwin- ites every Friday in Room 211 at two o'c1ock. 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 and play. 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. OFFICERS, FEBRUARY-JUNE, 1914 President ......... . . .EDWARD J.

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.

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.

It is the lWorris Science Club. The motto of the club 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 industries. 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 Products Company. 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! OFFICERS Presiflenf ..... .. ....

Arachne, a firure of Grecian . . 1 I L . mythology, was famed for her industry and skill in producing won- derful work in weaving.

As a punishment, Pallas changed her into a spider, and as such she is weaving and spinning to this day! 60 fl Rd CHN E CL UB VVC of the Arachne Club are busy sewing, embroidering and cre- ating all sorts of pretty things. The club is making great progress and seems to be growing more popular each year. The members are very enthusiastic about their work and during the last Annual Exhibition many useful and beautiful articles, made by the members, were displayed. At this exhibition the club was honored by the presence of Miss Earle. teacher of sewing in the New York Training School for Teachers. The june outing was zi trip to VVest Point and proved a great success.

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!" 1 1 8 8 . "'illfil ,il ISHS' 4 V 0 5' ' . .r re ef' 'Stat ,I K if ACH in 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. 64 N MWA?

OO MAIN BUILDING BASKETBALL CLUB Girlz' Basket Ball Glluh 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. 67 Banring ani! Game Qllaaa Tuesday afternoons from 2:30 to 3:45 Miss Freeston meets the girls who like folk dances and games. "Men and women are but children of a larger growthf' Any one seeing the "big" girls of the school laughing and breathless after a potato race, a game of alley ball, or Hall up," would believe such a statement. 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. MISS FREESTON,S DANCING CLASS 68 Ellie Alarrin Evhating Svnrivtg 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 ALACRIS DEBATING SOCIETY 69 THE ALACRIS DEBATING SOCIETY a Successful mock-trial and entertainment in the school. This term we have been entered as contestants for the Morris Alumni Trophy and hope to take a prominent position in the Struggle. We beg to extend our sincerest thanks to Mr. Bergman and Dr. Rosenberg for aiding us by their work as directors of our club, and to Mr. Denbigh for encouraging our venture and aiding us in every way possible.

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.

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 Moms- OFFICERS Feb.-June.

NORMAN lVIEANY 77 JWORRIS A THLETIC ASSUCIA TION 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 much praise. 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 years. We sincerely thank Mr. Leuchs and the other members of the faculty who have helped so much in forming the team. The members of the team were: A. Algase CCapt.D, L. Fertig, J. Folkoff, H. Starkman, J. Grubman, R. Powell Csubj, M. Frisch- man fMgr.j. The elections for 1915 were: L. Fertig, Captain, H. Starkman, Manager. 78 'sa x fiunum,,, H JJ f ei Q R11-als: ta SX f"N X if Nnnarnlui THE interscholastic riHe shooting season of 1913-14 produced some very keen competition. Fourteen trophies were competed for, and lVIorris upheld her reputation by winning six of these, Curtis annexing five. 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 .22-calibre rifle. 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 79 ' JIIIORRIS RIFLE CLUB Left to Right: RIFLE TEAM Rear Row-Ficker, Geisler, Spear, Mr. Theobald, Levine, Lahriola.

Captain Roland Reppert brought the Challenge Cup to Nlorris by winning the Individual Championship. He also won the Combination Rubber Co. Cup. Manager Kerr won the S., D. SL G. shotgun, Starke the R. H. Nlacy rifle, and Daly the Bloomingdale trophy. In the N. R. A. Inter-League series of matches, open to the United States, we took Hfth place in Class A. In our last match we beat Portland fIVIe.l H. S. by 952 to 950, breaking the school record of 946 established last year in the Astor Cup IVIatch. In the Astor Cup hlatch, for the United States Championship, Morris finished third with 951, only 8 points behind Salt Lake City H. S., the winners. Owing to the enthusiasm and energetic work of the Rifle Club members, 463 boys qualified as sharpshooters and II3 as marksmen, for a total of 364 points, IVIorris thus winning the VVingate Cup for the fifth consecutive year, and breaking our last year's record of 338 points. 80 MORRIS RIFLE CLUB 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 place, Daly fifth, and Reppert eighth. 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. Momus RIFLE CLUB 81 X X i ?V4 N .ae gl.. i 1 1 to W . - 3... 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 to the Gun Room and become familiar with the use of Hrearms. In- terest was increased by an unusually successful Sub-Target Com- petition open to all A. A. members, but excluding the members of the Rifle Club. 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, respectively. 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 follows: 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 82 GUN CLUB 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. OFFICERS, 1914 I'rf'.vidw1t. . . .................... ROLAND E. REl'l'ERT Svfrfftnry. . .....

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.

Spalter, who had made the All-Scholastic Soccer Eleven in IQI2 at fullback for Boys, High School, together with six of last year's veterans, responded to the call for candidates. An important feature of this year's schedule was the playing of the Commerce game at the Polo Grounds in connection with the foot- ball game. The team opened the season with a victory over Commercial by a score of 3-0. Townsend Harris next forfeited to lylorris by I-'O. 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- ducted by the P. S. A.

IEAM 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 championships. 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 season. 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 88 RELAY TEAM CHAMPIONS NOVICE RELAY TEAM-NOVICE CHAMPIONS TRA CK TEAM Championships for Novices. At these games, held in Brooklyn, N. Y., the Morris Senior Novice Relay Team, composed of Baldwin, Levine, Taub and Wells, Won first place. At a meeting of the Track Team, Herman Schulman received a unanimous vote for next year's captaincy. The Executive Committee, having received Milbauer's resignation, appointed Julius Bronfman to manage next year's team. The track men extend their heartiest thanks to Mr. Skeele for the aid he gave the team. TRACK TEAM , 90 FOOTBALL TEAM Q5 .X 1 1 MQW u n WWI AMW f1ffzf zw N ,MEYQ ,ilu limi R ,V In V V "l'i'UEl"lER. 'Q 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 securing. 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. 92 FO 0 TBALL lxlilllilgfff Thorn wishes to extend many thanks to lVlr. Emmons, lNIr.

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.

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 Meet program. Nluch credit is due to the active Indoor Meet Committee, con- sisting of Hedley fchairmanj, Kerr, Boedenstein, Sullivan, Zeigler, Tucker and Lenton, under the management of lVIr. Ernst.

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. INTER-SECTIONAL BASKETBALL 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. 97 " ff QRRQ , , it- " "" ' W if . ,ll A Xl JW lltxx XR.- ll mmm" A ion, reg " Q!

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.

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. " itil 111 ' Moluus DEUTSCHER VEREIN 101 Uhr illlnrria Erutarhvr Herrin 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."

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.

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.

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. 111 I 'VU BEPOHTEBS it .

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.
