The clubs we joined, the teams we strove to make, the buildings we "didn't throw snow balls within a hundred feet of," the teacher under whom we struggled, the holi- days we willingly endured, the parties which seemed so few and far between, and all the fellows we were glad to call our friends - here in this book we have tried to make the happy memory of all these Hermon associations more real and lasting .... IN APPRECIATION THROUGH Freshmen, Sophomore, Iunior, and Senior Years the Class of 1941 has found a continual help- er and friend in Dr. Porter. His understanding advice and encouragement have been of immeasurable aid to many of our ranks in times of doubt and uncertainty, and although all of us have not been able to know our headmaster so well as we may have wished, each and every one of us does feel a grateful appreciation for his kind assistance to the class as a whole during the past four years. Our appreciation is deeply felt also for the friend- ship, cooperation, and understanding of the faculty members we have come to know. Both from that which we have learned under their careful guidance and from the experience of our acquaintances with them we have benefited: as we leave the Hill, the Class of 1941 carries with it lasting teachings gained from our ex- periences with the faculty. fihe Qierlicafizm Tdedicate this, our Senior Yearbook. Fortunate indeed were Northfield Seminary and Mount Hermon when this friendly and understanding young man last fall became president of The Northfield Schools. Although we of Hermon have not been quite so fortunate as our sisters at the Seminary in being able to become well acquainted with him, we have some understanding of, and no small amount of gratitude for the work which he is so capably undertaking for the two schools and for each one of us as an individual therein. May his associations with, and his interest in, Hermon students of the future be even more successful and pleasant than has been possible with us during his first year. w I ll 5 y . I I IOHN D.

HIS group of twenty-one distinguished Alumni serves as a means of expressing the sentiments ol the graduates of Mount Herrnon School in mat- ters of school interest. Officially known as the Board of Alumni Counsellors, the group meets thrice yearly for constructive criticisms and observations by the members, of whom four are elected annually to serve for a period of five years. At the end of the school year an annual banquet is held for the purpose of intro- ducing Seniors to the Alumni Association. CLASS TEACHERS FORTUNATE indeed was the Class of A1941 when it was able unanimously to elect Mr. and Mrs. Mrrtz as class teachers early last fall. Since 1937 they had been friendly companions and helpful advisors to us all, and it has been both a privilege and an honor for the class to enjoy even a closer companion- ship with them as class teachers during this, our last year at Hermon. In the enjoyment of our parties and privileges, in the trials of our misfortunes, and in the solution of our problems the Mirtz' have been helpful, sincere friends of us all. As we leave the hill, we take with us a deep appreciation of the bene- ficial companionship we have enjoyed with these two special friends. The class would also like to express its warm gratitude to Mr. and Mrs. Petschke, Mr. Ledgard, Mr. Hadley, and Mr. Draeseke, its class honoraries, for their generous friendship and guidance during these past four years. IN SPECIAL APPRECIATICN E of the Senior Class of 1941 do not feel that we could possibly publish our Gateway without some expression of our deeply felt appreciation of the friendship and the guidance of Mr. Niblock during the three years in which he acted as our class teacher. As individuals we Were proud to feel that in him we had a special faculty counsellor to whom we could turn for advice, friendly cheer, and fellowship: as a class we were grateful for his encouragement and help in our attaining of numerous privileges and benefits that we should doubt- less have failed to enjoy without his aid and counsel. Strong still, as we take our departure, are the bonds of friendship and gratitude which have made our relationship with him the exceptional fellowship that it is.

Reminis- ing over the four year interim, we find that these initial impressions are still clearly and indelibly written upon our minds. At that time we played a relatively insignificant role in the school life, but the fundamental spirit of Her- mon fellowship which We absorbed then has been the basis for our increasing part in cam- pus activity that we have enjoyed during the ensuing four years. Several memorable incidents which occurred during our first year deserve mention. The Hill bid "au revoir" to the Iacksons as they de- parted on a trip to Florida and to Europe. Founder's Day was experienced without the traditional blessing of snow on the ground, but to compensate for this loss Dr. Porter called a holiday later when we were visited by several Bavarian skiers. In the Spring, one of the big events of the year, the Memorial Day Interscholastic Track Meet in which eighteen schools participated, was held here for the first time. The final examinations late in Spring were our passports to the Sophomore Class Conly a few of us missed the boatj. "ln Sophomore Year we left the rocks -" and went through the exciting experience of a hurricane during our first week back at school. The tragedy of the campus was the loss of the lovely cathedral pines which had so long beautified our entrance way through the gates. The wind almost blew Hermon across the river Cnot a bad ideal That fall brought Charlie Hall as our class president cmd Mr. Niblock as class teacher. In October many of our members attended a splendid concert at Northfield by the Vienna Choir Boys. Mr. Niblock helped us to make our social debut with the Seminary during the winter at the two parties held that year. We all had fun planning for these long anticipated functions. Owing to an epidemic of measles, the Sacred Concert was held separately by the two schools, the first performance and broadcast being at the Seminary and the second at Hermon. But that did not prevent the Spring production of The Mikado which was presented at Northfield by the combined choral groups of the two schools. The few inevitable encounters with the Student Council by some of our members did not blem- ish a successful completion of our second year. "In Iunior Year we left the sheets -" as we began to get into the full swing of things in Hermon life. Frank Gifford was elected class president, an office which he was to hold through graduation in Senior year. One day in the fall, friction started between the Iuniors and Seniors: a small "blitzkrieg" followed, but fortunately no casualties resulted. Our four parties went forward very well, and although we usually abstain from bragging we must admit that they were all really "tops" in the wholesome fun they afforded. On Memorial Day Hermon almost tied for first place in the Amherst Interscholastic Track Meet held on Cutler Field, and the whole school felt justly proud of this attainment. A few illustrious mem- bers of our class successfully painted the FRANK Q. GIFFORD .. . ,....... President BRADLEY D. HARRIS . ..... .... . .Vice-President WILLIAM F. OIBRIEN , ..,. ,,...,,. S ecretary I ERo1vIE D. O'BRIEN ...... ..,..,.. T reasurer Senior Rock in the Spring, and a spirited feel- ing of class rivalry resulted for a few days. Iune saw the promotion of most of us to the privileged positions of Seniors as the end of examination week was reached. "In Senior Year we left the cooks -" and we soon had the members of the Iunior Class floundering in the mud of Shadow Lake at the traditional Rope Pull in September. Mountain Day followed in October as the ranks of our class raced up the steep slopes of Monadnock on a brisk fall afternoon. During the fall Mr. and Mrs. Mirtz became our class teachers when Mr. Niblock did not return to school. We en- joyed our long anticipated Senior Parties throughout the year, but we did miss one along the way - remember? The choirs of the Seminary and Mount Hermon presented two separate performances of Handel's Mes- siah at Easter time, one here and one at the Seminary. We all appreciated our Senior Hol- iday at the time of the Amherst interscholas- tics as the week of examinations and gradu- ation was drawing near. The grand social cli- max of our stay at Hermon was reached when the Chateau Dance was held at Northfield at the end of May. Then came Graduation Week- End with all its ceremonies and events. "The saddest tale we have to tell, is when we bid this Hill farewell." Now, as we take our final departure from Hermon's campus, we, the class of 1941, feel a debt to Mount Hermon for its having incited within us some of the intrinsic virtues of tolerance, fellowship, ands understanding. fp 144 6 V .V x jhe' l L5 Best Dancer Best Dressed Best Natured Best Vocabulary Class Sage Class Scrouger Class Mimic Class "toughy" Most Capable Most Handsome Most Dignified Most Athletic Most Modest Most Respected Most Versatile Most Popular Most Optimistic Most Pious Most Pessimistic Most Likely to Succeed Most Conscientious Worst Punster Heart Breaker Mexican Athlete Biggest Benefactor Favorite College Favorite Disease Favorite Crchestra Favorite Dish Favorite Actress Favorite Pastime Biggest Eater Biggest Borrower Favorite Actor Noisiest Apple Polisher Class Clown Most Original CLASS lst Choice I ack Herrmann Bob Quandt Elam Hitchner lack Barwick Bob Horn Charlie Hall Truman Temple Leigh Clifford Charlie Hall Iim VanStone Bob Schumann Bill Waymouth Dick Birdsall Charlie Hall Hugh Mathews Elam Hitchner Dick Deveney Andy Cunningham Wilson Schramm Bob Horn Robin Stevenson Bob Hall Bill O'Brien Pat Rogers Mr. and Mrs. Mirtz Vassar Semitis Tommy Dorsey Seminary Chicken Lana Turner O.C.W.O.P.

I I i N - 3 FOOTBALL HE Maroon football machine, under the able coach- ing of Mr. Harper, turned in a season, not full of victories, but marked by outstanding spirit and sports- manship. The fall hostilities began when the Harpermen met the Massachusetts State College Freshmen in an evenly fought battle. After being outplayed for the first half with a score rolled up to 6-0 in the opponents' favor, the Maroon machine came back with a hard-driving offense led by the line-plunging of Larry Wilkinson, who scored Hermon's lone touchdown. The place-kick for the point-after-touchdown proved unsuccessful, and the final score was 6-6. The team next traveled to Wilbraham Academy to meet a team of superior strength: there, playing under the poor conditions of a rain-swept field, they bowed in a defeat of 28-6. By steady defensive work on the part of Co-captains O'Brien, Colegrove, Deurk, and Mathews, for the first half the Maroon held their op- ponents to a 7-O score, only to be broken by a strong second-half offensive drive by the highly favored Wilbraham team which decided the game. The following week the Black and Orange of Ver- mont Academy met the Maroon forces on the Hermon gridiron.

The final score was 14-O. Still seeking their first victory of the season, the Harpermen journeyed to Williston, where they played their annual classic before a large home-coming crowd. Scoring early in the first period, Williston took a lead of six points. Not to be turned back, the Maroon, under the clever running of Co-captain Shields, succeeded in matching the score: in fact. it made two touchdowns within a period of eight minutes, a Williston score being edged in between. Attempts for the extra point on both sides failed, thus leaving the score tied 12-12 at the half. Coming back with full power in the second half and still intent on winning this game, the Maroons were nevertheless turned back under the tricky plays of the Blue and Gold of Williston. A Williston score came late in the third quarter, with the attempt for the extra point being successful, this leaving the game decided at 19-12. In the forthcoming season, the Maroon forces will find a highly experienced group returning for service. This year, under the able coaching of Messrs. Harper, Baxter, and Wyman. a fine group of spirited boys was turned into a fighting squad, many of whom will be returning next year under the wing of Captain-elect El Shields, and who, we are sure, will make a success- ful season of 1941. f SOCCER Q X f- ff! ff fs HIS year's soccer team, under the able leadership of Captain Tippy Kellogg, was resplendent with victory during the first half of the season, and was a spirited and determined group in conquest during the latter half. Soccer has become more and more popular as the years have passed, and a much stronger team than usual in all re- spects has resulted. Opening the season with a game with Wilbraham, it defeated a team reputed to be vastly stronger in every respect. As the first half ended, Hermon trailed 2 to 1. As the third quarter ended, the score remained the same. How- ever, as the game drew to a close, Captain Kellogg led the boys on a determined drive which netted two goals in the last eight minutes of play. Carrying on, a much more experienced team faced Kimble Union the following week. In the first eight seconds Captain Kellogg scored a goal for Hermon. From then on, the whole team went on a scoring spree. At the last whistle, Hermon led by a score of 6 to 0. Then, matched against a fast-working combination at Williston, Hermon fighting all the time and cheered by Howard Quirk's sensational mid-field penalty kick which scored a goal, fought to gain the lead. However, things did not click right, and Hermon had to be satisfied with a tie, 2-2. Again matched against a superior and bigger team by many pounds to every man, Hermon had to bow to Deer- field with a score of 2 to 0. Fighting during the whole game, Hermon consistently tried to score, but to no avail. Thus ended a fairly successful season.

Captain Robin Stevenson held the lead for half the race for Hermon, but it was Ray Churchill who, coming in fast, succeeded in finishing in second place as number-one man for the Maroon. Stevenson, White, Owens, and Smith quickly pulled in, taking fourth, sixth, seventh, and eighth places, respectively, at the finish, and it was Smith's winning of a neck-to-neck final sprint with a Williams man that secured CROSS COUNTRY eighth position to leave Hermon with the small lead of Z'-T 27-28. 7 Five days later the team captured nine of the first twelve 0 Al places in its meet against the Cushing Academy squad, A 5 Q R although we were again unable to place a man first at the MJ finish line. Despite wet-weather conditions there were sev- XX c I ' eral good performances as Churchill, Stevenson, Ravage, N ll? , ' White, and Smith led the boys to a 23-32 victory.

With only one letter-man returning from last year, the Hanna-coached quintet faced a tough, five- game schedule without the benefit of experi- ence and teamplay. It disclosed, however. an abundance of spirit and fight. As the season progressed, it became more and more evident that this spirit was to prove the difference be- tween victory and defeat in two games, and was to be the deciding factor in the decision as to the success of the team. After being trounced by a favored and ex- perienced Deerfield five 58 to 18 on their oppo- nents' court, the Maroon hoopsters rallied to defeat Vermont Academy in a thriller at Her- mon, 34 to 24. Inspired by an enthusiastic gath- ering and led by Hanson and Cutler, who accounted for eleven and seven points, re- spectively, the team put on an excellent exhibi- 2 Q H it BASKETBALL ' Y V v v v QQQQ Q-:iff es: X w 5 Z 0 in X I XX in H ' 1. 2 e ts V ,F A Wwww. erik ' A WN i 1.1 cm' ' MMWW www tion of offensive and defensive teamplay, one that was much appreciated by the fans. After this spirited victory by the Hermon quintet, an exceptionally powerful Wilbraham team took the measure of the Hermon five, 41 to 20. Likewise, faced by a tough, ever-threat- ening Williston team, Hermon found itself up against superior playing, losing 38 to 56. Featured in these two defeats was the stellar defensive work of Hitchner and Burke, captain and captain-elect, respectively. However, the Hermon aggregation wound up the season in a blaze of glory by defeating Kimball Union in a close game on the home court 27 to 24, thus ending what may be regard- ed as a successful campaign in view of pre- season predictions. In spite of the lack of experi- ence with which the entire squad began the season, the team played "head-up ba1l" in all their games, evincing good sportsmanship both in victory and in defeat, and presenting to the school a record of which everyone is justly proud.

R gbgttr ill i y 1 2 J Q Q L Pl THE 1941 season was not fated to smile upon the Maroon Hockey squad, and the team was not once able to taste the fruits of victory, although it battled out a hard-fought series of five games. Williston, a well-balanced team of outstanding puck- sters, was the first to vanquish the Maroon squad, the score: 4-1. The high-spirited, fighting Hermon boys made their only goal in the third period when Doran, center, slipped a timely shot into the net. However, the Williston crew proved too strong and experienced for the Maroon in the end. In the next match Wilbraham got off to a fast start by putting one in the Hermon goal in the first few minutes of play. For the rest of the game the Maroon settled down to solid defensive work led by brilliant playing on the part of Beaudry and Harris. Harris succeeded in breaking through the strong line of the opponents to score the lone goal for Hermon, tying the game. However, in the last few minutes of the overtime period Wilbraham once again broke through, to capture the contest 2-1. For the first two periods of the next game, against Ver- mont Academy, the Maroon offense was powerfully driv- ing. Doran and Egan both scored in the first period to set off the team with a 2-1 lead. Owens followed this up by bringing the count up to 3-1 in the second period. However, the Hermon crew did not seem quite to click during the third period, and the Vermonters scored left and right in rapid succession to win 7-6. Mr. Wyman, this year's able Hockey coach, led a strong team of Alumni against the Maroon varsity to a 2-1 victory as the season closed. PICTURE IDENTIFICATION: First Row, Doran, Chisholm, Alexander.

ALTHOUGH it encountered strong opposition in an in- formal meet with Brattleboro High School, the 1941 Hermon Ski Team met with success, being undefeated in two regular meets. The snow conditions were not con- sistently satisfactory, and therefore, meets with Classical High of Springfield, Deerfield, and Vermont Academy were cancelled. As a fitting climax to its successful season, the entire ski team was given a day off, and transportation was provided to the Ski Bowl in Bellows Falls, Vermont. Here the boys indulged in their best skiing of the season, every- one reporting a perfect time. This year the team was very ably coached by Mr. Bisson of Hermon and Mr. Modern of the Northfield Hotel. The Maroon skiers' two victories were at the expense of Putney School and Williston. In the former meet, the Her- mon team was victorious by the score of 300-283. This was the first time that a Hermon Ski Team ever defeated Putney School. Churchill sparked the team with a first in both slalom and jumping. Bob Hall, Hermon's langlauf ace, took first place in the cross-country race. Dick Barrows, known as "Squeak" to his team mates, took first in both slalom and down-hill in the meet with Williston. Again Bob Hall was the victor in cross-country. In the informal meet with Brattle- boro, Ray Churchill came in first in the down hill and was just beaten by a few seconds in the slalom. Captain Dick Birdsall, Larry Wilkinson, Ray Churchill, Dick Barrows, and Gale Watson were the outstanding skiers of the year. The selection of the last named for the captaincy of the team in 1942 augurs well for a successful season. PICTURE IDENTIFICATION: R. Smith, W. F. O'Brien, Churchill, Wilkinson.

The inexperienced men fought hard against Amherst Freshmen, only to lose a close contest with a score of 19-15. An exciting afternoon was provided spectators at Iames Gymnasium two weeks later when the Maroon matmen trounced Loomis by a margin of 17-13. The Wesleyan Freshmen proved them- selves superior to Hermon's grapplers in the next meet of grunt and groan, vanquishing the men from the hill 32-0.

The Hermon team met Wilbraham in its first meet and emerged victorious from the sword-crossing matches 21-B. The strength of the Maroon was centered in the Epee men: Foil too did quite well, but the inexperience of the Saber team was a slight hindrance. In an evenly contested match with Loomis, Hermon fell slightly behind to lose by the close score of 10-7. The Maroon completed the season in a well-matched battle with the Amherst Varsity, a battle that was lost l4Vz-12W despite the commendable work of all three Hermon teams, Foil, Saber, and Epee. HE Maroon mermen had a very successful season this year, winning all four of its meets. Under Mr. Harper, its coach, and Bob Kalland, its captain, the natators swamped the Massachusetts State Freshmen, 53-13, placing first in seven of the eight events. In like fashion, Trinity College Freshmen lost to the Harper-men 42-24 in spite of the per- formance of another of the Tylers. February 19th ushered in a 49-17 victory over the Wes- leyan University Freshmen and the setting of a new record of l:07.8 for the 100-yard back stroke by Tom Restin, the previous record having been l:O8.7. Ten days later, the Hermon students saw their team defeat, for the first time in three years, Deerfield Academy, 49-17, thus closing the. sea- son with a perfect score for the year. TRACK HE 1940 Spring sports season brought to the fore another outstanding track team for Hermon: after losing the first meet by three points, the Hermon cindermen finished the season with glory, even carrying away laurels from the Amherst Interscholastics by winning a close second place. In the opening contest, against Vermont Academy, two school records were shattered, one in the field events and one on the track. Polhemus, who took an early lead in the mile run, held it all the Way to win by a comfortable margin with a new record of 4 :40.8. Schillereff broke the shot-put record by heaving that weight some 48 feet, ll inches to win another first for the Maroon. The Vermonters, however, pulled in ahead in the javelin and the discus as well as in all the shorter track events. By winning these and with the aid of the points filled in by seconds and thirds in other events, the cindermen from the Green Mountain State were able to capture the meet, 60-57. Within the next two weeks the Maroon distinguished itself with victories over the Massachusetts State Freshmen and Deerfield Acade- my. In the meet against the former, Hermon ran up the high score of 72-45 by winning seven of the thirteen first places and filling in a majority of the second and third positions. With Polhernus setting the pace by making a new record of 4139.2 in the mile, Hermonites swept all scoring places in the javelin, half-mile, and mile events: at the same time the rest of the boys from the hill were proving their superiority in the hurdles, the shot put, the high jump, the pole vault, and the discus. A similar record was made in the Deerfield meet the following Satur- X fire f-it f XX A 4 sr Nm lif 1 f 243 fn R gl Qi i -sl-win I., is , 33 day, but this time it was Schillereff who won the outstanding feat of the day by putting the shot 49 feet, 4 inches. Although unable to win more than five firsts, the team captured enough seconds and thirds to defeat the Deerfield cindermen 62-55. On May thirtieth, Hermon was host to sixteen other schools in the Amherst Interscholastics held here for the fourth consecutive year. Polhemus was the most distinguished man for the Maroon team on the field: after winning a magnificent victory in the mile, he won the half- mile by sensationally pulling out of "the box" and ahead of the three crafty opponents who had put him there. Conde came through with a first in the javelin throw to add another five points to Hermon's score while Schillereff captured a second in the shot put, and Bowman fol- lowed with a second in the mile run. With the addition of two fourths and a fifth position by Wheeler, Stevenson, and Moore respectively in the track events and of Shelton's third in the high jump the Maroon team was able to come within lf 12 of one point of winning the entire meet: however, Choate School of Connecticut proved to be victorious by this narrow margin. Nevertheless, it was a triumphant day for Hermon to be in the lead of a field of such strong schools as Deerfield, Newton High, Cheshire, Loomis, Williston, Kimball Union, Vermont Academy, and several others. With the completion of such a successful season much credit is due to the excellent spirit and the ability of the entire squad, and appre- ciation felt for the able coaching of Messers Forslund, Bayley, Niblock, and McVeigh.

I ff x A ' x WH ' - XX J, f xl X OACHED by Mr. Baxter and captained by Fred Witzel, the 1940 Maroon Golf Team broke even by winning two and losing two matches of a worth-while season. Despite the excellent 78 of Captain Witzel, the Hermon golfers suffered defeat in their first meet against 'Nichols Iunior College by a score of 8-3. Three days later in the annual father-and-son Hermon Golf competition on Parents Day Fred Witzel and his father walked away with first place for the second consecu- tive year. The Maroon divot-diggers next defeated the hookers and slicers from Kimball Union by a decisive count of 15-3. The following week they repeated the lesson in a somewhat closer match at Williston with a 6-3 victory. To end the season in the same manner it had opened, the Hermon team met a final setback at the hands of a definitely stronger team from Bay Path: score, 14-4. AIS in the past few years, Mr. Bisson again developed a highly successful tennis team. Completing his second triumphant term as captain, Ben Gunn guided the squad with the same agility with which he had directed the student affairs of the school through the year. In the first game Hermon's netmen lost to the Springfield College Freshmen 5-4. Richardson, Springfield's Number One Man and inci- dentally Atlantic Seaboard Champion, led the attack with a victory over Ben Gunn. Hardened by this setback, the Maroon forced a 5-4 defeat upon a hard-fighting Vermont Academy Team. The varsity netmen concluded the season by conquering Hermon's tradi- tional rival, Deerfield, with a 7-2 count. se ie. dx uf: f 7 fy 5" t" mr 5 rr wx Q, -4- 1-,-1.2 2'-J is tix ltr, fl A I w i .1 THE Lacrosse Indians had an encouraging start in swamp ing the Williams Freshmen 8-2 on an equally swampy Cutler Field: Vanlngen was high scorer, successfully netting three goals. The Maroon kept up the good work by subduing Kimball Union in their own territory with a score of 10-4. After these early triumphs, Hermon met with stiffer com- petition from the well-seasoned teams of Springfield College Freshmen and Deerfield: nevertheless, the Maroon kept her opponents fighting hard for every point till the last second of playing time. The Springfield men forced a 6-4 defeat upon her in an evenly matched contest, and Deerfield barely succeeded in squeezing out an 8-7 victory in the most exciting match of the season.

HE 1940 baseball season was off to a late start when the Maroon nine did not even mount the diamond until the second day in May. The squad had four regulars returning from the preceding year in the persons of Captain Tom Burke, catcher-pitcher Buss Malool, third baseman lack Burke, and outfielder Dick Nash. The interscholastic season opened on the sunny Parents' Day of May 11 when the strong team of Massachusetts State Freshmen suffered defeat on the Hermon diamond. The contest was a nip-and-tuck battle for ten hard-fought innings, for the score was tied 5-5 at the end of the ninth. It was an unlucky third inning that brought three runs to each team in a bunch, but after six more innings the score remained at a tie. Malool was able to score the winning run in the tenth on an error to clinch the game for the Maroon, 6-5. Ten days later the Malool nine met defeat on the Willis- ton diamond when the opposing team unleashed a superior attack which netted them seven runs to the Hermon three. lack Wood prevented the hard-hitting Williston squad from running up a higher score as he relieved Malool in the seventh inning to hold the opponents to no more hits for the remainder of the game. The score was reversed in the next game, however, when the Maroon team vanquished the Vermont Academy 7-3 on Chambers Field. The brilliant performance of lack Wood with seven strike-outs combined with the excellent hitting of Burke and Thompson to bring victory to Hermon. To add a perfect ending to the season, Russ Malool led the team to a close victory over a strong Deerfield team with a score of 3-2. PICTURE IDENTIFICATION: First Row, R. Nash, I. Wood, Horner, C. F.

It supple- ments the work of the varsity squads and at the same time provides a genuine opportunity for the younger boys to distinguish themselves among competitors of their own age. These youths are reared in the fundamentals of their respective sports and eventually use this basis for their future work on varsity teams. The nucleous of many a Hermon first-string varsity has come up from the ranks of Iunior Leaguers, and it is hoped that in time all our first squads will find a majority of their material not in one-or two-year men from high schools but from our own supplementary teams. The Iunior League coaches are gaining more experience and success as their work in this field goes on. More schools are putting added emphasis on their minor teams and are desirous of competing with us. In addition to the inter- scholastic contests, the outside practice games of the younger teams have become increasingly beneficial and prominent. The younger boys have proved their ability by making as successful records as their corresponding varsity squads, and in many cases better ones. With an increasingly im- proving organization the Iunior League is drawing at- tention and adding much to the school spirit. L ww' -S+-rkerafr - . - Co J O Y . 1 , " 'D of' uzfph ' .,f'wyc-'49 N .

Working as a representative body, it has tried to continue the many old Hermon traditions that are a part of life on the Hill. Sponsoring more Open Forums than any other Council, the Council feels that this method of student expression has brought forth many helpful suggestions, which were gladly received. A few of the requests that were followed through were for better lighting in Camp Hall, a drinking fountain for the soccer fields, and a full discussion of the Hermon athletic policy. On disciplinary cases, the Council has tried to uphold the tradi- tions of the school and to promote loyal and considerate citizen- ship. Appreciation to the student body must be expressed for its cooperation that makes possible a student council, and it is the feeling of the Council that, if future student bodies are as willing to work together as this year's school, future Councils will have a profitable experience through its work of repre- sentation.

HE Dickerson Society, following closely the excellent example set by last year's club, has once again enjoyed a flourishing season of fellowship and cooperation. Under the able guidance of its new advisor, Mr. Fiedler, who has always been ready to assist in any problems, the club has striven to work in harmony with both the Administration and the other societies on the Hill. Through this program of open meetings and forums the "Dicks" have pro- moted their purpose of arousing scientific interest among the students. During the year the club has tried to take into its membership boys who were willing to work for the betterment of Dickerson and of the clubs as a whole. Those who are graduating this year cannot help being grateful for benefits received through their membership in the club. They are convinced that the spirit of which they have had such a large part will prevail in future years. ITH the international situation continually in mind, the Good Government Club has again this year endeavored to carry on its original purpose: namely, to create an interest in politics among students on the hill. Towards this goal she has throughout the year, encouraged those who disclosed an interest in our work to join the Club, and she feels that a strong nucleus has been built to carry on the task next year. Good Government has regularly opened her meetings to the student body and presented current topics for discussion. As in years past, the fraternal spirit of the club has been an asset in rela- tions with the other clubs, and has aided her in her own work. URING 1940-1941 Hayward has brought to its members a fellowship which can be found only in similar organizations at Hermon. Long to be remem- bered by them are the times which they have spent at the cabin, or at a picnic singing around the campfire. High among the attributes of every member of the club has been his willingness to cooperate constructively towards the general welfare of the school wherever there has been an opportunity to do so. For thirty-five years Hayward has stood as one of the foremost clubs on the Hill. The 1941 members believe that its tradition will be even stronger thirty-five years from now. Hayward wishes to express its sincere thanks to Mr. Hadley, who was kind enough to fill the advisorship left vacant by Mr. Henriksen's departure last Iune. ITH enthusiasm the Lyceum Club has this year attempted to bring to its members a new meaning of fellowship. Frequent discussions among the boys and numerous outings have combined to create this finer conception of brotherhood. Numerous students, both new and old, were admitted during 1940-1941 to Lyceum, these helping to form one of the largest groups the club has had in years. These new members with diligence and spirit have collaborated with the former members in lifting higher the torch of Lyceum fellowship. HE spirit to carry on has hit a new high among the Philo members. Mid- winter bids added to the ranks of the club, and it was not long before a full program had been entered upon. Every Philo member now sincerely believes that the social value received in the clubs will be of memorable significance in the years after Hermon. The clubs have again gone through a trial period, and it has been the sincere effort of Philo to join with the other groups to maintain the new standards that she undertook in order to make the clubs of constructive value to the school. Outings and other social activities have been interwoven with public-speaking accomplishments to make a successful and enjoyable year. The club feels deeply indebted to her advisors, Mr. Dunn and Mr. Gibson, whose whole-hearted and helpful assistance has been rendered. OMMENCEMENT this Iune puts the finale to the 41st year of the history of the club to which the famous Thessalian spring is sacred. Pledged to the aim of building up and maintaining the morale of the student body of this, her Alma Mater, Pieria has striven this year, under the able and inspiring leadership of President Frank Baker and Mr. Fleckles, to keep unsullied and add to the honorable record of usefulness to the school and of comradeship among the members so carefully built up by preceding men of "Pi." Towards this traditional Pierian objective, its members have "bent up each corporal agent," and in the accomplishment of their purpose, they believe that the year 1940-'41 has been successful. In working together for the good of the school, and the good of the community, Pierians have found a deep sense of responsi- bility and of comradeship, adding another well-written chapter to the long history of Pieria.

The Choir, which makes up the largest musical organization in the school, has had a busy, full schedule. Aside from the daily hymns and the Sunday Anthems, the Choir pre- sented the annual Candle Light Service of lovely Christmas music from all lands, the Sacred Concert in May, and as a special feature, the Messiah on Easter Sunday. In all three of these programs the Estey Chorus at the Seminary blended vocally with the Hermon Choir. Both members who are gradu- ating and members remaining sincerely feel that they could not have received more able leadership and training than that which Mr. Gallagher rendered this year. The willingness of this organization has done much to enlarge its program: its effi- ciency and its standards go higher each successive year. The hard work and the time that all members have expended have been rewarded by the acclaim of the school. The choir men who graduate this Iune are confident that the choir of 1941-1942 will continue with the spirit disclosed during the past nine months.

Beginning early in the fall, this group had excellent opportunities for performance given them. Together with the Estey Choir of Northfield Seminary, the Hermon A Capella supplied the music for the induction service of Rev. William E. Park, the newly appointed President of the Northfield Schools. This service took place early in October. Two months later at the annual Candle-light Service, A Capella and Estey chorus again joined voices to present to both schools an extraordinary selection of anthems. At this time a few of the choruses from the Messiah, by Handel, were sung as a prelude to the concert of a large part of the Messiah which was given in April at both Hermon and the Seminary. The most memorable musical performance is always the one in which everyone sings. This year, as for several years past, the combined student bodies of the schools gave the Sacred Concert. In this program, the A Capella Choir sang anthems separately and with the Estey Chorus. This day, which is always looked forward to with eagerness on the part of everyone, again was a success.

Its place in the program of secular music of Mount Hermon is similar to the position held by the choir in relationship to sacred music. The membership consists of many Hermonites some of whom are members of the regular choir, others of whom prefer secular music entirely to sacred selections. In order that the Glee Club should be fully ready to sing spiritedly any of the better-known school songs when called upon, the first task of the fellows was to learn by heart all the verses to the popular Hermon tunes. The finished manner in which these songs were rendered at different times during this, the sixtieth year of Hermon, has proved the ability of the mem- bers to grasp the spirit of our Alma Mater's music. During the winter term this organization presented an unusual concert in an Assembly before the rest of the student body: among the best done of the selections were De Animals Am a Comin', Musical Trust, and the famous Sibelius choral number, Onward, Ye Peoples. During graduation week-end the Hermon Glee Club combined with a similar group from the Seminary to present the annual Secular Concert. PICTURE IDENTIFICATION: First Row, Durham, Van Dusen, I.

GLEE CLUB HERMON KNIGHTS LTHOUGH graduation last Iune deprived the Hermon Knights of over half their numbers, the men in the band have come through nobly this year under the leadership of saxman and clarinetist Hugh "Foo" Mathews. Building the organization around Howie Quirk on piano, Arnie Keller on sax, and Frank Baker on trumpet, and himself, "Foo" developed the group until the lineup read: Mathews, Keller, and Mal Hunt, sax: Baker, Dick Fales, and Ralph Algood, trumpet: Shep Bart- lett, guitar: Art Starr, piano, replacing Quirk: Bill Kenyon, trombone: and Arthur, drums. This combination has done a great deal of really excellent work, providing the latest in jive and sweet "stuff" for parties and Saturday night entertainments. The Gateway wishes to take this opportunity to express the gratitude of the entire stu- dent body for the long hours of rehearsal and work put in by the Knights in providing tops in entertainment for both schools.

THE CLASSICAL ORCHESTRA UNE marks the end of one of the most successful years of the classical orchestra. Under the leadership and supervision of Mr. Ivory, the instrumentalists have learned much and have enjoyed doing it. Starting in September, 1940, with the largest turnout of recent years, the group gradually worked down to a dependable nucleus of approximately twenty-five boys. Weekly, on Tuesday evenings, rehearsals were held in Camp Hall, and once each month, the group journeyed to the Semi- nary for a joint session with the girls. Twice during the school year concerts were given, one at Hermon, and the other at the Seminary. The high point was reached, when, following the spring vacation, the orchestra played for the production of The Messiah, the Overture and the Pastorale Symphony being the important selections. Everyone worked especially hard to produce music that should have something of the spirit and the finesse of a first-class orchestra. As an added treat, during the past nine months, each member has had the opportunity to hear some worthwhile concerts in Greefield, through the help of the school and the generosity of Mr. Ivory. It is hoped that, with the success of this year's organization and because of the fact that a majority of the members are undergraduates, there will be an even better season during 1941-1942.

With Mr. Ivory acting as its capable leader and under the student presi- dency of Robert Smith, this group started the year off by play- ing at the games of the Maroon football team. Cooperating with the cheerleaders, the band did much to help in keeping high the spirit of both team and spectators. The entire group also went to the outside games, where it continued to rally the eleven with the same pep which it offered during the home games. After the football season, the organization continued to carry on with a certain amount of the same enthusiasm as more difficult musical selections were rehearsed for the spring con- cert.

N the five years of its existence, the Mount Hermon Riding Club has offered to all interested students the opportunity to further their activities in horse- manship. The club considers itself particularly fortunate in having the North- field Stables at its disposal, and it has by no means neglected the privilege. The club has access also to the numerous trails in the woods behind the Northfield Seminary campus. However, the members do not limit themselves to riding: on several occa- sions week-end trips to the cabin have been made, and to complete the year. a banquet was held at a well-known large hotel. The club is ever indebted to Mr. Hadley, who has been an able advisor throughout during 1940-1941. FOR the last few years the Rifle Club has increased its membership, interest, and activities. During 1940-1941, the members of the club have competed in not only intramural matches, but also interscholastic and National Rifle Asso- ciation matches. Attempts are being made to obtain a permanent club rifle range with longer and more varied distances than have been possible previ- ously. Those students who are interested in marksmanship and gunmanship, the club has tried to organize into a group so that they may be afforded safer and more varied ways of profitably expressing and utilizing their interest in these hobbies and skills. AS in the past, the object of the Commuters' Club has been to unite all day students in an effort to bring themselves closer to the life on the Hill. Under the able leadership of Mr. Marr, to whom the club is deeply indebted, this course was successfully pursued this year. Through the kindness of the administration, commuters were permitted to use the "Y" Building during the afternoons. In appreciation of this, the club has tried to disclose its gratitude by conducting several projects, among them, the relocation of the baseball scoreboard. In this way, the leaders of the club hope that a more friendly feeling has been created between the day students and the other members of the school. CUM LAUDE ORRESPONDING to the Phi Beta Kappa Society in colleges throughout the United States, the Cum Laude Society is a national fraternity among the preparatory schools of the country. Since receiving its charter in 1929, the Mount Hermon Chapter has annually taken into its ranks a small but outstand- ing group of students from the graduating class, membership being limited by the national society to those in the upper fifth of the class. At Mount Hermon, however, members are seldom chosen from below the upper tenth. Member- ship is based upon scholastic achievement and citizenship during Iunior and Senior year at Mount Hermon, and only boys who have been on the hill two or more years are eligible for the society. The presentation of the Cum Laude certificates and Cum Laude keys is made by Mr. Morse, secretary of the Mount Hermon Chapter, in assembly on Parents' Weekend on May 10. The impressive service, in which the ideals of the national fraternity are ably stated by various faculty members, is indeed a memorable occasion to those who receive this outstanding recognition for their consistent labors. Members of the faculty who have belonged to Phi Beta Kappa chapters in college are honorary members of Cum Laude at Hermon, as are also the heads of the departments here. The object of the society is to encourage in preparatory school students throughout the country the pursuit of higher scholastic attainment. PICTURE IDENTIFICATION: First Row, Mattern. W. E.

SCHAUFFLER ASSOCIATES HE Schaufller Associates is a group which is interested primarily in the reading and the discussion of books by some ot the modern, present-day authors. However, the activities of this group are by no means limited to reading. It promotes annually the Hobby Show Exhibit, assists with the Henry Huntting Reading Contest, and conducts the Student Private Library Contest. In the case of the last named, a prize is given to the student who submits the best and most varied personal collection of books. An added function of the club this year was the starting of the Nickle-a-Week-Book Club. The Associates make several off-campus trips in the course of the year. Some of these trips, such as a visit to the Iohn C. Merriam Binding and Publishing Company in Springfield and to various libraries, are primarily educational in purpose. Other trips, made solely from the recreational standpoint, are taken to such places as the cabin, Greefield, and Wiggin's Tavern in Northampton, where the club holds its annual spring banquet.

IN this fifth year of its participation in campus activities, the Student Church Council, composed of boys representing all phases of school life, has become increasingly important as an advisory council and as a separate organization. During 1940-1941 it assisted the Executive Committee of the Church and other religious organizations in their work among the students. Working independ- ently, it sponsored the Old Clothes Drive, Embassy Weekend, and the Com- munity Singing. The purpose and aim of the Student Church Council is to sponsor projects which otherwise would be neglected and give the students more of a voice in the religious life of Mount Hermon. RGANIZED late in the winter season, this year's debating squad of less than a dozen Hermonites had a brief but successful season. In discussing topics of international interest, three different groups of four fellows each held debates in panel style with Cushing Academy, Deerfield Academy, and North- field Seminary. All three of these informative discussions were both profitable and interesting to the Hermon audiences which attended them. Much credit should be given to Mr. Ledgard for his able coaching of this group of promising young orators. HOUGH only two years old, the Faraday Club has attracted a willing group of students deeply interested in Science. lt is named after the famous scientist Michael Faraday. Ably guided by Mr. Laurence, the club members have worked on projects of their own choice during the year, such as soilless growth, metallurgy, and other phases of Chemistry. The group as a whole has varied the showcase providing a changing picture of late developments in the field of Science, and has repaired some of the biology equipment, such as the manikin. Through the generosity of Mr. Laurence and several others of the faculty, the group has been able to enjoy several short trips to nearby plants and mills. ' The club is especially indebted to Dr. Porter for his help and cooperation, and the Physics and Chemistry Departments for their help in its development.

NYJ' .-525-sf fag? fegy HERMON ITE ITH the sixteenth issue, the fifty-second year of continuous publication of Mount Herrnon's student journal, the Hermonite, closes. The Seniors of the Board have put the paper "to bed" for the last time, entrusting into the Willing and able hands of the remaining members the task of adding another link to the chain ot years. The oldest student organization on campus, the Board has, since 1889, provided a means of student expression, served as a recorder of the history of Mount Her- rnon, and maintained a high standard of news interest on the Hill. The 1940-1941 members, under the capable leadership of Editor-in-Chief Arthur Katz, have put into the work of the organi- zation a willingness and a zest that have carried the publica- tion to the successful conclusion of another year of service to the school. Adding new ideas and suggestions to the invaluable experi- ence of previous Boards, the students who comprised this year's staff have contributed much to raising the already high stand- ard of the paper. In working together on issue after issue, they have found, in the midst of rendering to the school and the community a concrete and lasting service, a comradeship and spirit of fellowship traditional with Hermonite activities.

It consists of a small group of boys having an intense interest in handicraft. The club does very little as a group, but the individual members receive much help as well as relaxation, from working in the craft shop. The shop, under the careful supervision of Mr. F. G. Bisson, is as well equipped as the yearly budget, carefully spent, will permit. It has, in addition to a good line of hand tools, a circular saw, a jig saw, and a wood lathe: all with many helpful accessories. Other members of the community are allowed the use of the shop upon applying to Mr. Bisson if they can prove themselves proficient in the use and care of tools. In addition to aiding in manual instruc- tion the club affords lessons in the care of handling tools, and cleanliness in the shop. AVIATION CLUB THE Aviation Club, a comparatively new organization on the Hill, has pro- vided an outlet for student interest in aeronautics, both as a vocation and as a hobby. The last three years have seen ever larger entries of models and projects by the club members in the annual Hobby Show. In 1940 the group received a medal for effective presentation at this exhibit. This year, through the cooperation of its new faculty advisor, Mr. Meyers, the club has procured tools and other equipment for model work. The increased interest in gasoline-powered models has brought about club participation in a meet at Greenfield and another on the Hill. THE NAVIGATION AND SAILING CLUB IT has been the purpose of the Navigation and Sailing Club this year to teach its members the fundamentals of navigation and a method of putting them to a little practical usage. The club took it upon itself to construct a boat. It was a small one, being only eleven feet, six inches over all, a class boat be- longing to what are known as the Penguin Dinghies. It was cat rigged, having only one sail. The members spent a great deal of their spare time working on the craft, which was built in the basement of Silliman. Mr. Peltz, has been our worthy and capable advisor. THE CAMERA CLUB THE Camera Club is no new organization on the Hill, but its activity and its sphere of influence have grown noticeable in the past year, mainly through the help of Mr. Paul Wilson. Although the number of members is not excep- tional, the interest that they have disclosed during 1940-1941 is deeper than that evidenced for many years. Regular print competitions have been held upon prearranged topics, and the winning pictures have been displayed in the library. In these competitions and in the meetings the members have been able to learn a great deal concerning both the practical and the artistic aspects of photography. A HERMON POEM I look upon these sturdy hills that face Mount Hermon's site And pray that I may be as strong as they, for God and right: I see the farms that men have tilled to meet their daily need And pray that I may also plant my share of useful seed: I sit Within these Chapel walls Where love and peace endure And hope, throughout the coming years that I may be as pure. I feel the goodness of this place since Hermon first began And pray that while I live, I'll strive to be a Godly man.

N compiling and publishing the 1941 Gateway, the board has tried to place on paper in pictures and writing at least a few of the outstanding events and activities which the Class of 1941 has enjoyed during its Senior Year at Hermon. It is our sincere wish that many of these pages may help to preserve some of the happier memories of Mount Hermon in the minds of this year's graduating class as it goes forth into distant fields of lite. Our deep gratitude and appreciation is keenly felt for the three men who have so kindly and ably aided us in publishing this book-Mr. A. D. Platt, Mr. L. E. Smith, and Mr. R. W. Kelly.
