Boyisll Girl 14 . . .OAKLEY JUDSON . . . .LINDA MONACO DOROTHY ALLEN "Dat" Dot is one of those quiet, industrious girls who does her work diligently and cheerfully. She is always reldy to help and we are sure that she will make a good nurse. EVELYN ALLEN "1'1rn1f'j' " Evelyn is among the few who are ambitious in their studies. VVhenever good marks are given out, Evelyn is sure to be first on the list. With such ambition we are sure she will succeed. We wish you the best of luck! H ELEN ARTT "Curly" This graduating business is hard, when it comes to parting with such as you, Helen. Helen and her eontralto voice have gone hand in hand through her course here. She is very popular, so much that it is hard for one to secure a dance with her at a social allair. Girls' Ulee Club, 1, 2, 3, -ln lli-Y 3, -l-. .-Kit Club, 2, 3, 4. f Lf AVARD BABB , fi!-v ff "Hey You" This one, like Aard Vaark, should come iirst on the list. He has achieved more fame as a drug- gist than as a student. VVe wonder if they are all like that up in lVIaine where he comes from. XVirh energy like his to aid him, he need not worry about his future. 15 x s R Orr ALFRED BACKSHALL IIA!!! This quiet, serious young man always seems to be occupied with matters of great importance, which fact probably explains his enviable scholastic record. The Spanish Club is sorry to see him go iso are we. We wish there were more like you, Spanish Club 2, 4. Rifle Club 4. FRANK BALLENTINE "Soapie" Frank is quiet and calm. Yes, but when you know him-well, he can be just as noisy as Knowl- ton, or any other lklathematician. just watch the Telephone Company progress when Frank starts in next year. Football 4. Hi-Y 3, 4. Track 3. ANNA BANKS "Ann" Anna Banks is one of those girls who has a pleasant personality. Her jovial good humor has won her a place in the affections of those with whom she is acquainted. But, ohl those sarcastic remarks! Success to you, no matter what field you may enter. WILLIAM BARRERA "Bill" This red-haired senior is Bill Barrera, one of the schoolls important journalists. During his course in school, Bill has acquired a stern and command- ing air which well suits his position. Perhaps this is due to his being managing editor of the Broad- caster. The job for you is editor of the VVorld's Almanac, Bill. Football 3, 4. Operetta 2, 4. Track l. 2, 3, 4. Broadcaster 3, 4. Hi-Y 3, 4. Cobhouian Board 4. Glee Club 3, 4. 16 WALLACE BATSON "Wally" M? "Wally', sure can stop a baseball when on the diamond, and hold his position down well. And how he managed that basketball team! Now you've got to find a real position to hold down. Try being a Manager. Baseball 2, 4. Basketball Manager. RUTH BELDEN "Ruth" Ruth's charms are vivacity, prettiness, and a sun- shiny nature. And yet, at the same time, she's studious. How does she work it? We don't knowg perhaps "Vern', does. And she's another aspirant to American University. She'll make friends wherever she goes. Basketball 2. Hi-Y 4. BERTHA BENNETT "Bert" Every morning at 8:2595 Bertha comes sailing into Room 29. She is a most energetic and oblig- ing person. Whenever you meet her in the halls, you are greeted by, "Hello, I have to hurry to --. See you later." Good luck, "Speedy," ROBERT BERGEN "Bob" Here's to the biggest blower in the school. VVell, you usually can hear his cornet above the rest of the racket in Band and Orchestra practice. Bob has made some good friends, and we find that he is not going to be a musician with long hair and an intelligent look. CBob is intelligent, according to some teachersj lf he toots his way through life there is little doubt that we'll hear some more fine music. Band 1, 2. 3, -I-. Orchestra 1, 2, 3, 4. 17 EDNVIN BEVANS Here is another one of those apparently quiet hut otherwise jolly Seniors. 'KEd" has been a hard worker while at M. H. S. and shows he has the "stuff" for making out in business. Track 3, 4. CHARLES BLU NIENTHAL "BIonn1f'rr" Charles has been our best dressed student. His wavy hair has been the magnet for the fair sex, and we often wonder how he "gets that way" with his hair. Best luck with your future, but beware of those avaricious women! French Club 4. Band 1, 2. Orchestra 1. ANN MARGRET BORJESSON "inn" Would anyone accuse this dignified looking young lady with the dimples, of being mischievous? Well, there is a lot of good humor and fun hidden behind that calm exterior. Ann has been a good friend and an excellent student, and we wish her luck at Goucher. Hi-Y 3, 4. Track 3, 4. Hiking Club 4. Hockey. French Club 4. Basketball 4. KERNIIT BOTKIN 'fgoikien This rotund debater has left behind him a trail of weary teachers. His infectious smile and nu- merous wrist watches make him conspicuous in any group. It pays to advertise. French Club 4. Debating Team 4. IS + g, -"Ti fin FREDERICK BREARE "Fred " Another Morris Plains patient being doctored by Morristown teachers. At least, Fred has made himself heard with his loud trombone blowing. Fred, when you get in-remember to keep blowing your horn. Band 1, 4. Glee Club 2, 3. ANGUS BROWN HGMU Gus hails from the remote borough of Mountain Lakes, and the tales he tells, the straight faces with which he tells them, and the nature of them would convince the greatest sceptic that this is the only place to live. He has taken more subjects than you could count, and has served well as Editor of the Broadcaster. We wonder if there isn't a little Scotch blood in him. Editor-in-chief of Broadcaster 3, 4. Swimming Team Z, 3, 4. Hi-Y 2, 3, -I-. LUSENA BROWN NLM, Lu doesn't need to patronize her father for glasses to see what's going on-she sees anything and everything. She is an ardent worker and a good friend. We hate to see you go, Lug we're going to be lonesome. Commercial Club 3, 4. Basketball 2. Cheer Leader 4. J. C. A. Board. Broadcaster 3, 4. PAUL BRUNISHOLZ "Boomer"' Here's a fellow we don't often hear unless it is at Glee Club rehearsal. Paul has cut many tricks on the ice while playing on the hockey team. There is little doubt that if he plays the game of life as he did hockey he will not have anything to fear. Glee Club 2, 3, -I-. Hockey 3, 4. 19 V CHARLES CAMPBELL "Soup" Never mind, girls, except in one case Soup is a man's man. Soup surely has made a hit while he was with us. His big object was the football team, and his continual plugging and game playing won admiration, as well as a place on the team. lf you keep at your work as you did football, well -watch a new business grow. Football 2, 3, 4. Hi-Y 4. 1 f ,iv 1- i:o1'rH CAMPBELL f "Effie" VVell, well, another one from Mountain Lakes. No prof can put anything over on her, and she has shown remarkable aptitude for her lessons. VVe wonder if she will ever get those Latin papers corrected. Edith is going to Wellesley, and we hope she does as well there as she has here. Girls' Hi-Y 4. French Club. Cobbonian Board 4. IRVI NG CAPPEL "Inf" The ability to make himself heard seems to be one of lrv's chief assets. However, in his four years of technical work at M. H. S. he has shown that he can work when the occasion demands it. He loves his Alma Mater so much that he is going to return for a P. G. VVALTER CARR npiggy U Yes, this is another one of a string of Carrs. Walter has been well known and as manager of the track team he did a good job-they looked it after he Worked out on them for two years. If he is as fast as the men he managed, he will surely get ahead. Manager Track Team 2, 3. Z0 HAROLD CLASS "Classy" Here's one member of our class who will never be arrested for speeding. But Harold is persever- ing, and anyone possessing that quality, no matter how slow he may be, is bound to make good. Iloesnlt the tortoise always win the race? ALBERT COLEMAN 14 "Al" Those of us who knew "Al" will never forget the laughing, industrious and good fellow he was. "Al" put most of his efforts on football, track, and Ili-Y work, and made an enviable name for him- sc-lf in all. His speed and ability will help him succeed. Football 3, -L Track 3, 4. Ili Y 4 HUBERT COLLIGAN "Herb" Hubert has been one of the school's last minute book-reporters. He can frequently be seen look- ing over the books in the library in an attempt to get a report for the next day. Morris Plains has delivered us this serious-minded gentleman, and we wish him the best of luck! Track 4. EILEEN COMISKEY "Eileen" Eileen is one of those ambitious girls who have put all possible energy into the work of the Com- mercial course. We know the world will give you a square deal, Eileen, and when you cut the cards, we hope the result will be happiness. 21 RUTH CONGER "Ruth" This unobtrusive person journeys every morning from distant New Vernon and presumably returns there every night. Although not a prominent per- son, she is well liked by those who know her. We wish her luck. Art Club 2, 3. Glee Club 2. ELIZABETH COOKE H "Cookie" Cookie travels every day from distant Cedar Knolls to honor Morristown with her presence during her school days. She has played basketball and baseball. Her studies of languages are to pre- pare her for the library work in which she is interested. Senior Play. DOMINIC COREA "Nick" What would "Murph" do without Dominic in Accounting? The former stalls until the latter thinks of a suitable answer. Nevertheless, Dominic is one of our most intellectual students, and will be a great loss to the school. But the firm that employs him as accountant will gain a great deal. NELSON CORRAO "Nell" Nelson Corrao is the class scientific writer. Two years ago he was awarded the first prize in New Jersey by the American Chemical Association. His essay was on the Relation of Chemistry to Medi- cine. We expect that Nelson will write a Chem- istry book some day, for revenge. J 22 CLYDE COURTER IIC!-Vile!! Clyde does not shine in his studies but is always ready to take his share of the responsibility. When Clyde isn't in lVIorristown you will be sure to Find him at N. C.-so we have been told. Hi-Y 2, 3, -1-. Baseball. Science Club 3. HAZEL COURTER HH Hazel is one of our quiet workers, but she is well known throughout the school. She is as de- pendable as the Rock of Gibraltar, and has been a faithful and valuable member of the Art Club. Aff Club 3, 4. Hi-Y 4. ANDREW' CRAMMER Windy., Because of his hashfulness this diminutive inhab- itant of Chester has pursued his course at M. H. S. without much of an audience. But the au- dience doesn't know what it has missed, for Andy can dispel more gloom when he gets going than anyone else we know. DORIS CUMBACK "Dot" Another Nlendhamitel Like the other girls from there this year, Doris chooses to be quiet and reserved. We know, however, that Doris has many friends and is liked a great deal by them. Ask Vera and Ruth. After June, Doris expects to become a nurse. Good luck! 23 X N Q 5' I. -.F PAUL DANNA ffpaulii His cheery smile has won for him a host of friends, and he has somehow managed to keep on good terms with the faculty. Such people are always welcome. We know that Paul is no excep- tion. Broadcaster 4. KATHERINE DAVIES "Davie" The best of friends to have. Dependable, friendly and cheerful, everybody knows and likes her. Prominent in Hi-Y activities, and a common sight on the athletic field, she is one of our most eminent Seniors. Basketball 1, 35 Capt. 4. Glee Club l, 3. Baseball 1, 4. Orchestra 2. Hockey 4, Capt. Girls' Hi-Y 3, 4, Pres. Track 4. French Club 4. Broadcaster 2. Hiking Club 4. CHESTER DAVIS "Chet" It is useless to try to say anything when Chester is talking. But he is a bright scholar, isn't he, Miss McClelland? He 'made his stage debut in 'lMacbeth" and is anxious for more theatrical roles. With this fellow's ability and perseverance, success is only around the corner. Adiosl Football 3, 4. "Macbeth." Spanish Club 3, 4. FRANCIS DE cosrak "W.mr-" Here is a man who ambled through M. H. S. with very little noise. However, we have seen him on the hockey team and he served a year as a member of the Spanish Club. "Wank'l is gradu- ating this year as another representative of a family of a number of M. H. S. "grads" Keep in line with your predecessors and you'll make out well. Spanish Club 3. Hockey 4. 24 o ,p Wik- DONALD DELPHO "Don" Don has given us valuable aid with that big bass horn of his, and we admire his ability to carry it around town. Don has a wonderful per- sonality, and is a true friend. Colgate will be very fortunate next year, and we sure do wish him the best of luck. Swimming Team 3, 4. Cobbonian Board 4. Band 3, 4. JOSEPH DEMPSEY X wil "foe" Q' 1 77 Y "He did it, its all his fault. You re to blame, Joe, so they say. ltls a good excuse, but it doesn't work, does it? We all like your Winning ways and know you can't do everything that is wrong. Yes, Joe has done all he could to help his class make a name. Hockey +. Track 3, 4. Hi-Y 4. EDVVIN DEVORE ..Ed.. Caze upon our noted repreientative from lllendham. There isn't a musical instrument that lid can't play, and when he graduates from Syra- cuse the world will have another skilled musician. XVe haven't known you long, Ed, but everyone appreciates the wonderful school spirit you have shown. Basketball -I-. Orchestra. Band. Boys' Glee Club. HELEN DIETZ "Dietzif"' Helen is a conscientious worker, a devotee of the typewriter. Her efficiency in this stenography lusiness makes us all envious. Here's to a suc- cessful career, Helen. Hi-Y 3. Service Club 4. Commercial Club 4. 25 Q -44,,,,,d13sd Y x WINIFRED DOSWELL "PVinnie" Happy-go-lucky, lively Winnie, always on the alert to add her bit of humor. She is one of our left-handed stenographers, but that's no handicap. She can take dictation faster than some of her right-handed competitors. EDWARD DUKE ,.Ed., Business has interested this asset from Cedar Knolls and his ability in accounting will be his forte-maybe. Anyway "Ed" has contributed to basketball and football. Although "Edu is bound to glance in certain directions, there is little doubt that he will be a competent business man. Basketball 2, 3. Football 3. HOWARD EMMONS "Howie" One of the seven wonders of the world. A human slide rule-Einstein's rival! Our eminent mathematician. He has made a name for himself in M. H. S. and will become famous some day. Look us up then, and tell us to what you attribute your .success Spanish Club. MORRIS EPSTEIN "lMorris" Nlorris is one of the Seniors who has placed as little effort as possible in his work to receive his diploma. Morris is a quiet, unassuming young gentleman, never a care or Worry in his mind, except regarding motoring. When he has gradu- ated, he will be able to devote all his time to his car. 26 I f ,f RICHARD FAIRCHILD "Dick" This suave gentleman is our distinguished actor and play producer. His greatest aspiration is to be the producer of an all star cast of "Mac- beth." Amherst should be honored to receive one of Virgil's chosen companions, and most assuredly, a veritable Frenchman.

Commercial Club -L VERA FREEMAN "Vera" Vera hails from that popular town of Mericl- ham. Her distaste for studies seems to be over- whelming.

SENICR HISTORY ONG years ago-yes, four years, though it seems but yesterday-a large group of what are now experienced and intellectual young men and women entered the portals of our M. H. S. as innocent and fearful freshies. Fearful? Ah, yes, don't you remember those huge crowds, the ever escaping room numbers, and the embarrassing experiences with upper classmen? But it was soon to be discovered that among this moving mass of humanity there was some real talent and individuality, and although this was undoubtedly over- looked by our superiors, we were very proud to find our members entering athletics and other fields of interest. And then came the end of our initiation, and we found ourselves growing up too fast. We were Sophsl Having long awaited the opportunity of being upper classmen, we did not understand why the rest of the world did not feel as enthu- siastic, and were very indignant when forcefully removed from the senior stairs or asked to remain after school for misbehavior. As is customary, we organized as a class under the capable supervision of Mr. Jacobs, our advisor, and chose the follow- ing officers: President, Rocco Vigilanteg Vice-President, George Vaughan, Secre- tary, Granville O'Roark. Many of our men made the athletic teams, and others progressed in the scholastic field, and at last we began to feel as though we deserved recognition. When we re-entered the High for our third year, it was with an attitude of determination and responsibility. We had attained a certain dignity and repose which we greatly appreciated after two long years of playing the under-dog to the two upper classes. At our first meeting the Sophomore officers were re-elected, with the addition of Lois Gilbert as Treasurer, and the class colors of blue and white were selected. Our Junior Prom, which was given during the latter part of the second semester, proved to be a great success, and we looked with anticipation toward next year's Senior Prom date. Finally we became Seniors, and our officers were: President, Granville O'Roarkg Vice-President, George Vaughan, Secretary, Mary Anne York, and Treasurer, Helena Murray. We delighted in the sacred privilege of guarding the Senior stairs from the ineligible footsteps of the under classmen, and felt a never-ending pride in mounting them. The year has passed all too rapidly, and graduation, the goal for four long years, has approached. Sad but true, we must leave M. H. S. and enter the next phase of life, taking with us the happy memories forever stamped upon our lives. We are greatly indebted to our faculty advisor, Mr. Jacobs, and wish to express our gratitude to him and the rest of the faculty for our success.

The Nugent family, well known on Broadway, played in it, and proved very successful. "Dad" Bence, a retired harness manufacturer, is worried over money matters, and when his daughter, Kate, returns from a shopping trip in New York he decides that the only thing for him to do is to sell out. He is one of the main characters and furnishes much of the comedy. Kate wants an artistic career, but it is very evident that she has no talent, because she hasn't succeeded in anything she has undertaken. Her parents and sisters are trying very hard to marry her to "Duke,' Merrill, a wealthy gentleman, but Kate vvon't marry him when he has no faith in her. At last she is offered a star part in a musical comedy. "Duke" tells her that Sherman, the manager, is only trying to make a date with her. She gets very angry when he suggests that they get married before she goes, and so when she sees the plumber-architect, Kempy, she makes him marry her. Everything turns out as it should in the end. The marriage is annulled, Kate and Duke finally get married, and that leaves Ruth a chance to win Kempy for herself. The play was well supported both by the student body and the townspeople. The Senior Class is very much indebted to Mr. Williams, the coach, who spent a lot of his time in making the play a success. 58 THE BELLE OF BARCELCNA Cast Luis de lllontero, zuealtlzy plantation owner.BERNARD SPELMAN Gloria de lllontero, his wife ................

VVe have all lived together in this school four second homel for four long years, like one large overgrown family. Of course, many tempta- tions have arisen, but we have overcome them with a clear conscience. When they leave our beloved Alma Mater this year, we, the Juniors of M. H. S., hope to carry on the name they have made for themselves. The Class of 330 has done much to help with school spirit, attending many of our games, with participants on the teams. These big men like "LeXie" Clark and Harvey Smith, what would we do without them? The school couldn't exist, and they are members of the Junior Class. We certainly are proud of them and hope they will do much for us next year. Our class rings show what good taste we have. Our good friend, Isabella Green, helped in this respect, and we hope she will be rewarded with a fine position when she graduates, or perhaps she will be rewarded in heaven! YVhy shouldn't we be a good class, with a man like Mr. Boell as our Advisor? He deserves a great deal of credit. The Junior Prom was the gala event of the season, held on May 3rd at the Community Club, with our friend, 'lDave" Jorgenson, supplying the music. Many attended this dance, including our good brothers and sisters, the Seniors. YVe surely do hate to see you go, Seniors. But when you go out into the wide open spaces, watch out for opportunity when she knocks at your door! lylore and more luck! 62 5 x 5 I 2 v x n ,t . i J-if D 5'-E ri!! lull l lt 41 ' I x X N 1 r . r ...

Blr. Cowan was chosen faculty advisor. As Freshmen we did not do a great deal. The Junior Civic Association made two or three trips, but otherwise it was a very uneventful year. VVe were busy trying to keep out of the Sophomores' way. A few of us got on the gym team and quite a number received their numerals. Some studious ones succeeded in getting on the Honor Roll, :ind others studied hard enough to be on the Credit Roll. llns year we have had fun snubbing the Freshmen, but it dill not seem to bother them as much as we would have liked it to. lVe are making a better record in both sports and scholastic work than we did last year. lVe are well represented in football, hockey, swimming and basketball, and also on the Honor and Credit Rolls. Une Sophomore has upheld his class and shown his genius for salesmanship by winning a prize for selling tickets. There are a good many Sophomores in the Clubs which will take them, though there are not many that recognize us. Next year we will be juniors and not trodden under foot by upperclassmen. Then we will show the school what we can do. 64 L ?

H. S. W'ith fear in our hearts we entered for the first time this imposing structure. A short time later, we of the Freshman Class, individually and collectively, might have been found wander- ing aimlessly about, white cards in hand. Eventually each of us reached our destined room, not, however, without grave misgivings that we might perchance be astray. Finally that eventful day came to an end, and school had begun in earnest. Ignored by Seniors, disregarded by Juniors and despised by Sophs, we, Freshmen, labored for the first half year. lVIidyear examsl Those sinister words brought fear to every heart. But lol The school was smitten hy the influenza, and we escaped that dreaded misery. The exams were omitted. The changes necessitated by the addition at the rear of the school have afforded great joy to the,less studious members of our class. The more industrious ones were slightly annoyed by the light and fairy tappings on the wall. Such cries as "Heads up belowu have mingled melodiously with the voices of our worthy teachers. Alas. the Latin Room, 26, has been torn down. ln the more serious matters of the day our class has rated well. The Freshmen for the most part have a high scholastic standing. They are well represented on the Honor and Credit Rolls. It is to be expected, there are some exceptions, but, of course, .the exceptions are the beauty of the rule. The Girls' Basketball Team started out by trimming the Sophs and finally taking two out of three games from the Seniors, thus clinching the interclass championship. The Freshman Football Team had quite a successful season. lylost of the members will make a strong bid for the Varsity Team next fall. VVe are nearing the last stretch. Some of us will be Freshies next year, but the majority will be "Wise Fools," as Mr. Boell lovingly puts it. As we are an excellent class we may well say: "Sophomores, watch our smoke." H 66 1 SERVICE CLUB HE idea of some plan of co-operation between the students and faculty was originated in the Hi-Ys. After it had been fully discussed there it was brought before the senior class. Here after some discussion six students and three of the faculty with lVIr. Perry as advisor were chosen to investigate the matter and definitely draw up some plan. This body of seniors with some juniors visited different schools to get some ideas and Finally decided on a "Service Club," consisting of twenty seniors and ten juniors. This group with Mr. Perry's consent elected Mr. Smith as advisor. The Service Club's only duty for the present is to direct trailic in the halls or in the cafeteria during the lunch periods. This is being done in order to test the co-operation among the students themselves. The graduating class of '29 hopes that following classes will follow out what we consider an excellent plan for the better- ment of our school, and give their fullest support to it. 68 A ' ti W w wf I7 1 L N X Q, 'N J! rt n su n f hey! if 'T as '.. Tl! NV Q HE lllaroop and VVhite football season of 1928 was not a total success, but by no means a failure. Of the ten games played three were won, five lost, and two tied. During the first of the season NIorristown's eleven went down to defeat before Ridgewood, Trenton, lwontclair, and South Orange. However, all of these were larger schools, and therefore had a larger field to pick from. The two tied games showed up very well the two brands of football that Mor- ristown played during the season. The first was with Roxbury, and it showed the poor extreme. During the game Morristown didn't get started until the last quarter. and then they lacked the "pep" to put over the winning score. In the Boonton game it was just the opposite. Here the Maroon warriors showed their best, held the greatly favored opponents to a tie, and might have beaten them had not Dame Fortune turned her smiling face from Nlorristown at the last moment. lVIorristown's three victories, which came in the early part of the season, were over Westfield, Bernardsville, and Madison. All of these games were exceptionally well played, and the team deserves a great deal of credit for the decisive victory over their ancient rival, lwadison.

Although only six of the twelve games on the schedule were won, the team found little difficulty in defeating the county teams, having a spotless season. The outstanding game of the season was the great victory over Boonton, by a 2-0 score, when the local team was conceded only a slim chance of winning. ln the big game at Boonton the locals played their best game of the year, win- ning on two hits. The team was airtight on the defense, cutting off several Boonton rallies. The victory was especially important since the locals took home the John Sweeny Baseball Trophy, having won it three times. A similar trophy will he con- tested for this year, and the team has high hopes of taking it. Though weakened by the loss of Walttmn, Cronshey, Nodoro, and Bauer, the team was not particularly handicapped for the season of 1929, as several capable substitutes of last year were on hand. The lettermen of last year's championship team were awarded miniature gold baseballs by a group of local sportsmen. The lettermen were: Batson, Walton. Bruen, lVlarinaro, lVIurphy, Bauer, Cronshey, Kenney, Vigilante, Nodoro, Johnson, and Manager Landi.

There was a large turnout, and with the able coaching of Nlr. llflaclntyre and his assistants we had excellent results from average material. The 1929 schedule was restricted, because of lack of facilities for visiting teams. The County lleet was held lVIay 22 at Dover. 74 u CIIIIIQIQQ if I xv' 1 ff R' arts at 9' u R. Com-li .. ...JAMES A. MACINTYRE rllanrzger .. .... XVALLACE BArsoN HE basketball team this year had another successful season. The team won the County Championship for the seventh straight time by easily defeating Dover and Boonton. They also won 1-F out of 20 games. The team split even with the strong New Brunswick and Bloomfield teams, defeated Asbury Park, Long Branch, Central Qtwicel, Roselle Park, lVIadison, and lVlorristown Prep, and lost a hard game to Passaic. Coach lVIaclntyre issued his call for candidates early in December and had a large response. There were several members of last year's squad, and he built a very capable team around these men. Vigilante, as star guard, bad a good partner in Farino, while Campbell took care of the pivot position. Murphy, a guard in 1927-1928, was converted into a very good forward and had lVIatthews as his team mate. Porter, Jones, Gannon, We-lzmiller and Wibbelt were very capable sub- stitutes. The team this year was under several handicaps, mainly the lack of a home court. The High School gymnasium being under construction, the Armory was used until the State condemned it as being unsafe for crowds. Most of the home games were played either at the Y. M. C. A., Prep School, or in lVIadisonls gym, and the moving about cut the attendance somewhat. "lWac" was sick for a week and the team, not having a coach in the Plainfield game, was completely demoralized. Near the end of the season the team seemed to slump, and was eliminated from the State Tournament by Belleville. ' 76 3 I INDIVIDUAL SCORING lllurphy ... .. 18 Campbell . R.

Inasmuch as most of the teams encountered were composed of older players than our own, the Freshmen deserve a good deal of credit for their success in winning five games out of the eight. This year marked the first one that our school has been able to score against lworristown Prep. There is a fine chance for the players on the Varsity next year, and we are proud to boast of the result of this year's work with the Freshmen. Owing to the lack of a gymnasium, due to the work on the addition, no other Freshman sports were organized during 1928-29.

But a row of los and 17s was the best that could be done against the stronger teams of Pingry, East Orange, and Plainfield. Beneville, VVulf3f and Springstead won two first places each, while E. Traphagen and Carpenter had one apiece. Altogether, VVulff and E. Traphagen secured six places apieceg Springstead and Carpenter fiveg the remaining points being captured by Wriglrt, Brown, Lightner, Cassidy, Delpho and Bl. Traphagen. Since the absence of Coach Everaert made it necessary to have a shorter schedule than usual. the members of the team did not have a chance to get fifteen points required for a letter. Therefore a special ruling had to be made to cover this short, difhcult season before letters could be awarded.

The great handicap this year was due to the hard schedule played. Out of nine games three were victories. The outstanding players of the season were Harvey Smith and Bert Beneville. The line-up for next-year will be nearly the same, as a veteran team will return, with the exception of Petrone. New Utrecht was defeated by a score of 4-O in their annual game at Morristown. The team journeyed to Princeton, where they played Carteret and Hun in the Hohey Baker Memorial Rink. Blair was visited this year for the first time, which resulted in one of the closest games of the year. Madison and Chatham were easily defeated.

MARY JOHNS Coarh ............................... Miss EVELYN NOBLE N November, 1928, Girls' Field Hockey practice was started for the first time since 1925. The interclass games were begun after a few weeks of learning plays and signals, and ended with the Seniors winning the series. The weather proved very unfavorable, and the teams had to contend against rain, snow, mud and cold. The Seniors had a well organized team, and worked the ball up the field steadily, thus enabling them to run up a fair score. Both the offensive and defensive line-ups did good work, and all deserved their numerals. lt may also be said that the Freshmen had an unusually good team. The Senior line-up is as follows: Muriel Wiss ................ R. XV. Corinne Tuohig .. .... R. F. Oakley Judson . . . . . .R. l. Elsie Pike ....... . . . .L. F. Linda Monaco , , , ...... C.

This year, due to the building of the addition, practices and games were held in the Neighborhood Hcruse, Practices were held twice a week for about a month, and then the games were begun. Each class had a fairly good turnout, and gave good opportunities for picking out the superior players. From the beginning the Freshmen and Senior teams were outstanding, which resulted in a few exciting games between the two. These resulted in very close scores, such as 27-25, won by the Seniors, 23-22, by the Freshmen, and the final game of the tournament, 1-1-13, won also by the Freshmen. Thus they received their numerals by winning six games, the Seniors five, Juniors live and Sophs none. Before the end of the season lVIiss Noble was laid up with a sprained ankle, necessitating the postponement of several games. Since the Freshmen and Seniors were logical contenders, as their games were even, the other games were cancelled. The 1932 line-up is as Follows: Lena Coleman .................. F.

Smith and Mr. Allen, there has been a marked improvement in the Broadcaster. The class was started late in September, with an enroll- ment of about twenty-five, but when the school resumed its regular schedule the number dropped to about fifteen. About twenty members of the staff and board attended the conference of the Northern New Jersey School Press Association held in Nutley High School late in November. The chief events of the afternoon were two very interesting speeches: one by Mr. Colyer of the Colyer Printing Company, printers of the Cobbonian, and one on the evolution of cuts by Mrs. Larson of New York City. Later there was a business meeting of the association. This was followed by group meetings and an open period before dinner, which was served in the cafeteria. Several more speakers were heard after dinner. Another conference was held in Orange in the spring. According to the custom established last year, new editors were elected in January from the Junior Class in order to give them some experience before their senior year. A special issue was printed the day before the Dover game to serve as a pro- gram of the game. That issue included pictures of players and coaches, records of teams and data about the officials. A special humor issue was also published. The Broadcaster is now three years old, having been first published in the fall of 1926 by a few members of the graduating class. It was first called the "Morris- town News," but its name was soon changed to the "Broadcaster," The paper is steadily improving, and it is hoped it will continue to do so until it ranks as one of the best in the state. 89 DEBATING OR a number of years it has been customary for the high schools of Morris- town, VVestfield and Plainfield to hold a triangular debate. Each school is represented by an afiirmative and negative team which speaks before its own school. The students of each senior class act in the capacity of the judges. This year the subject debated was, Resolved: That the Jury System Should be Abolishcd. The members of the Nlorristown affirmative team were Karyl Rubidge, Henry Davidson, Kermit Botkin, and Allen Northup, alternate. The negative was composed of Richard Fairchild, Ralph lbfusser, Ida Fisher, and Herbert Pollock, alternate. Mr. Smith, llfliss Foltz, and lVIiss A. K. Johnson coached the team. Our affirmative was defeated at VVestfield by their Plainfield opponents. The score was 20 to 72. At Plainfield the victory was snatched from lVIorristovvn's negative by the close vote of 77 to 70. Plainfield defeated the Westfield negative in the debate held at Bfforristown. Thus it appears that Plainfield won the series, neither of the teams being defeated. hlorristown was unfortunate in both cases. These debates were all held in the different schools on the same date, Marcli 22. Each speaker was allotted seven minutes for presentation, the first part of which should be used in refuting the arguments of the previous speaker. The first member of the affirmative team concluded the debate with a three minute rebuttal. 90 THE RIFLE CLUB Pl'f'5iIlFI1f ..... ..

TUTTLE HE RiHe Club was formed by a group of enterprising seniors With the able assistance of the coach, Mr. Tuttle, for the purpose of popularizing the sport of target-shooting in the high school. A constitution was drawn up which contains a creed that every true sportsman should try to live up to. During the winter the meets were held in the Armory, and some very fine scores were turned in by many of the members. With the coming of spring and fine weather, the club began to hold its meets outside. A fairly good range was constructed and meets were held every week. Owing to the fact that this is the first season for the club, no outside matches were scheduled, all the time being taken for practiceg but next year the club expects to hold meets with rival schools, and win their share of them. in D k f 1 . si krk. 91 HIKING CLUB P residfnl ......

The club also went to Trenton, but unfortunately UD secured a truck to take them to the football game, instead of hiking to XVashington Valley, which was the original destination. The members have had a rousing good time in the Hiking Club, and ambitious plans are under way for the 1029-30 season. 92 COMMERCIAL CLUB Presia'ent ...... . . .

Each member is given a room in which to have charge of the banking, and he or she sees that the assigned room ac- quires 1002. On Tuesday the "Thrift Bulletin" is published, showing the amount of cash banked to date. Jokes and cartoons are also published in this issue. This year the Commercial Club entertained last year's members at a banquet held at Princess Lodge. The club is limited to thirty members and only those having attained a high degree of scholarship may be admitted as members. This last year C1928-295 membership has been increased, thus showing the popular demand for good work. 93 BOYS' HI-Y President ..... ....................

HAROLD G. LAw'roN, MARCUS S. SIVIITH NE of the most successful seasons of the Boys' Hi-Y Club has come to a close, and the destiny of the organization is now left to the underclassmen. Early in the Fall the members started disscussions on a Student Organi- zation, and it was mainly through the continued effort of the Hi-Y that the Senior and Junior classes were induced to take up the work. After a council had been thoroughly discussed, the boys turned to another side, and took up Religion. That this issue of a man's life is considered vitally important was proven when the State Older Boys took up the same topic. Later in the year the club was fortunate in having several addresses on "Voca- tional Guidancef' lVlr. lwarcus Smith, club advisor, and discussion leader, obtained by invitation men who would most benefit the boys. There were speeches on bank- ing, journalism, engineering, and business. Dr. Chester M. Sanford, noted voca- tional guidance expert, attended one meeting and gave advice to those desiring it. Two meetings were held in conjunction with the Girls' Hi-Y. ln the Fall the girls acted as hosts, while on' Valentine's Day the girls were the guests of the boys. ln both cases a record attendance was made. The club came to a close for the year shortly after the Easter Vacation, with an outing at Camp Washington. A stay of a few days was made, and the installa- tion of next year's officers, officially closed the term. 94 GIRLS' HI-Y CLUB President ...... . . . KATHERINE DAX'IES Vice-President . .. ......

The slogan is "To face life squarely." - The program for the year has been varied, with helpful discussions, and inspiring speakers. Vocational guidance has been the theme of their talks. At Christmas time a box was sent to Caney Creek and dolls were dressed for the chil- dren at the local Neighborhood House. Two joint social meetings were arranged between the Boys' Hi-Y Club and the Girls' Club. One was held in October and the other in February. 95 LE CERCLE FRANCAISE l'rei-iflwif ..... .....

EYERAERT E CERCLE FRANCAISE was first established in 1925 under the leader- ship of Mr. Louis H. Everaert. A charter was granted, duly signed by the Board ot Education, lVIr. VViley and Mr. Perry, which contained the purposes of the club, namely: that the members acquire a better knowledge of French outside of the scope of classroom work, in that way gaining a broader yiew of French literature and also some ideas of conditions existing in France today. But during the year 1928 the juniors and Seniors who maintained the average of S5 Qthose being the only ones who could be membersj did not evince enough interest to reorganize. But in '28-'29 we were more ambitious, and organized in the beginning of October. Le Cercle Francais was prospering both spiritually and financially when a great calamity befell it. Klr. lfyeraert fell seriously ill and activities were suspended. XVithout llr. lCveraert's guidance the club has not met again, but it is hoped that activities will be resumed next year undcr his counsel. 'JU SPANISH CLUB President ..... .. .

The members include the students of Spanish IH and those of Spanish II who have an average of 802: or above. The meetings are carried on in Spanish under the direction of the faculty advisor, Miss McClelland. The past year has been spent in giving plays, debates, musical entertainments and recitations. At several meetings "Flinch" has been played. The Spanish name for Flinch is "Fitabea." In May the members made a trip to New York City, and everyone enjoyed it. It is hoped that succeeding clubs will have as helpful and successful seasons as the club of 1928-1929 has had. 97 ART CLUB President . . . . .JANET SALISBURY Sei-retary ........ .. .

B. COWAN HE Boys' Glee Club was seriously handicapped this year by a late start due to the upset condition of the schedule during the first four months, and it was not until after Christmas that the organization really got under way. Since that time rehearsals have been more or less regular, and under the direction of Mr. Cowan, a number of male choruses have been re- hearsed and there has been considerable experimentation with "close harmony." The best feature of the year has been the increase in membership, the club now boasting a roster of well over a hundred active members. The club has furnished a large number of candidates for the operetta, and Will round out the year with an appear- ance or two in assembly and in the Commencement program. 100 GIRLS' GLEE CLUB President ...........................

Concerts were given in assembly for the celebration of Music Week, which Occurred Mary' 5-ll, and Schubert's Centennial. A few numbers were also sung for Parent-Teacher meetings and some church programs. Representatives were in the County High School Chorus conducted by hir. Frederick Rocke. The club was instrumental in making the Operetta a success. Among some of their numbers studied are "Calm ls the Night," "Land of Sky Blue W3tCl',l, "Big Brown Bear," Lemaire's "A Dreamboat Passes By," "The Italian Street Song" from Rigoletto, and "Three Little Maids from School" from The fllikado. The two last performances were at the Commencement Concert and Com- mencement exercises. These closed the most successful year of the club's existence. 101 THE BAND NE of the most prominent organizations in this High School is the Band. During the past year this club has increased perceptihly in size, and has become one of the most important of the musical cluhs. Captain John H. hicKenZie, zi member of the R. O. T. C., is now the director of th e Hand. As a military player, he has the ahility to get the most out of the material. Under his direction the boys have developed ll snappy, military hand. footh Early in the fall the hand, wearing its maroon and white suits, played at the all games. In February it presented H. benefit picture in co-operation with the J. C. A. 102 ORCHESTRA ERE is a group that has been heard from more than any other. The orchestra, under the able direction of Nlrs. Gladys S. Nlosher, has rendered many services to the school and has brightened the assemblies every week with its music. The big event of the year was the music played at the Operetta, "The Belle of Barcelona," which was conducted by and for the musical clubs. Nlusic was also furnished for the Senior play, "Kempy," at the Y. lvl. C. A., llusic Memory con- test, in newly organized County Orchestra, at Parent Teachers, Association meet- ings, during lvlusic VVeelc, and at the Schubert Centennial. This organization has helped in several ways to promote school life. The new interest stimulated in the grades and the success of the past years will undoubtedly increase the size, ability, and usefulness of this group. 105 Y y QA BY X M '4 3-n X? 4 S 4 ' - NUS.
