No other words describe, as accurately, our feeling for Mr. Frederick S. McVeigh. He has taken a genuine interest in us and in all our activities, and, owing to his fair- ness and his tireless patience, we have looked to him, time and time again, for guidance. Through his sincerity and his constant willingness to be of service, he has earned the liking and the deep respect of the entire student body, and particularly the Senior Class. Outstanding among his many contributions is his superb work as coach of the cross-country team, which has been defeated only twice in fourteen years of dual competition. He has been praised, many times, for his ability to inspire, in his teams, an indomitable spirit. Mr. McVeigh is well-known also for the time he has unselfishly given as di- rector of the annual College Cevenol Campaign. It is fitting, therefore, that we dedicate, as the symbol of our friend- ship and our gratitude, the 1951 Gateway to Mr. Frederick S. McVeigh. F0ltEWORD OUNT HERMON SCHOOL began to be fully appreciated by us only as our graduation day approached. Especially in the last term of our senior year, we began to realize the overpowering fact that soon we should no longer be students on the hill. Each time we return as alumni, though maturer collegians or more sophisticated adults, we shall poign- antly recall the bitter moments., tl1e lively hours. April, May, June of our last year were happy months. Our academic senior standing had already been determined, and all our college appli- cations filled-our classes seemed a little easier, for most of the pressure was gone. Somewhat relaxed, we noticed our classmates on the athletic field, in the dormitory, and at West Hall, we saw our teachers as sensi- tive human beings. Almost suddenly we became aware of how much these friendships meant to us. Perhaps on a warm, drowsy spring eve- ning, returning from a Crossley softball game, or walking up to Vliest Hall for breakfast when the sun was bright, we unexpectedly realized the importance of each day here in the long life ahead of us. This chronicle will best be justified perhaps when, with pride and a trace of nostalgia, we hold out to a smooth-faced youngster with wor- ship in his eyes Hpictures of Daddy when he was just a little older than you." isp ,,'- DR. HOWARD L. RUBENDALL B.S., B.D., D.D. Headmaster PPRECIATIO HE years have flown quickly by, and memories are all that remain of the happy, busy days we have spent at Hermon. Nor shall we soon forget the spirit of fellowship that has become so much a part of us during this time. In looking back, we realize, some of us for the first time, who it was that guided and influenced our lives on the Hill. We owe Dr. Howard L. Rubendall far more than that which can be ex- pressed in these few word of appreciation. Even as freshmen we came to know Dr. Rubendall as one in whom to put our confidence. He has seemed never distant or impersonal, but always present, in our midst, ever concerned with us as individuals. Our life at Hermon is now past, and, with somewhat heavy hearts, we take our leave, but we leave not empty-handed. We are ably equipped to meet, and prove our mettle in meeting any challenge that may con- front us on the road that lies ahead. At Mount Hermon, our studies have taught us much, but, far more important, we have learned what no amount of classroom work could ever teach us, a lesson that lies in the very principles upon which our school is founded, the lesson of brotherhood. We will treasure, throughout our lives, the ties of friend- ship established at Mount Hermon. To Dr. Rubendall, who, as head- master, is largely responsible for the knowledge and experience we have acquired here, we extend our sincere and humble thanks. 6 HORACE H.

The objectives behind the activities of tI1e association, which is ably directed by the Reverend Lester P. White, Class of 1920, is chiefly to keep in touch with former Her- monites. Mr. White also makes annual visits to Hermon clubs throughout the country and supervises the publication of tl1e Hermon Alumni News quarterly. The Alumni board handles a huge correspondence, by which many I'Iermon Friendships are kept intact. LESTER P. WTHITE B.A., B.D., M.A. Clark, Yale CLASS HI TORY E will probably remember the first day of our Freshman year for a long, long tin1e. Since it is only recently that we have learned that Hermon waited sixty-six years for us, We were short on self-assurance that day, and what little we had was hard put to stay with us. We were whirled through that process-line in Holbrook and dropped breath- less outside like reject ball-bearings from the sorting machine. That night when we had re- covered from the ordeals of the store, high- pressure Hermonite salesmen and the Head- masteris handshake, we went to bed. Before we fell asleep, we had definite ideas about Hermon. The old students came the next day, and we could see that they were pretty Big Wlheels. Even the floor officer was a demigod for nearly a week, but by that time, all those definite ideas had changed. Wle learned a lot that year. We were in- structed in the fundamentals of study, clean- ing a room and swabbing dikes. We picked up the basic principles of rabble on our own. The class took on identity as we elected offi- cers-,lim Allen was president-and had our Freshman party. For some, it was the first Contact with Northfield, and a pretty grisly affair. By noon the next day, it was estab- lished that all Sem Freshmen were beasts. It did not occur to us then that we ourselves might have lacked some of Valentino's tech- nique. It was approximately seven years to Christ- mas vacationg but when we went home, we were Hermonites. There was more snow that winter than in all the rest of our years put together. Still, the winter term dragged a little for us, and it was with light hearts we went to the station on March fourthfthrough the five inches of snow that had fallen on Marcli third. Not too long after we came back, the sun shone, the Hill became green, and the air carried a taste of Summer. It became increas- ingly difficult to study, indeed, some of us quite gave it up altogether. As the lnterscho- lastics and the Sacred Concert drew near, we counted the hours to our last final. Both of those events had beautiful Spring weather, and both were impressive. Those counted hours oozed past, dragging a day along with them occasionally, and the finals arrived at last. lllost of us had never had any before. We discovered that they were indeed final. Wllftn we returned as Sophomores fthe word is from the Creek, wise fooll we were Old Students. Wie belonged. Things had not changed much, except that some of our friends were about a foot and a half taller. Wie also noticed some new classmates around. Of course they were only three-year men and would not amount to muchesenior Presi- dent, Hermonite and Gateway editors, etc.- - but we gave them the benefit of our knowl- edge on How to Survive at Prep School, and they did pretty well. Overtoun, our new home, became about as quiet as a boiler factory 011 a rush order. There were occasional parties in the morning-one o'clock in the morning -Messrs. Scranton and Wryman became party- goers. At least one ultimatum a week was delivered, and a 11ot inconsiderable number of hours was awarded. Sophomore year marked a change in smoking habits. The Senior Nook gave way to the Blue Cloud, and Overtoun, Chris Schmidt and others were taking the nature trail after lights by Way of the fire ropes. was said goodbye quickly, for they left the next day. Nor were we without a twinge of regret when we remembered Chris climbing the side of Overtoun and dumping lllr. Zaumzeil,s bed. Several of our most spirited rabbles had gone. wfhey were not happy here." Wie who remained, did our best, but We were no match for such Wlyman- isms as midnight radio harvests. This was the year we came into our own socially. Largely through the efforts of Dr. and Mrs. llleany, who never quite gave up hope, we perceived that last year's 'llieastsi' had changed considerably and the Sopho- mores were quite tl1e nicest class at North- field. A few of us found, in Mrs. Meany's mixed discussion groups, that girls could think and talk just like people. Spring came, and we took to liacrosse on the flvertoun lawns. The first floor acquired cross-ventilation as lacrosse balls entered through closed windows. Once again the ln- terscholastics and Sacred Concert sped hy, but , tg jg, 1, F 1 the choirs were well-sprinkled with us by this time. Then, comparatively easy finals, and the exodus. It was a great year. Never again will we know so much about everything and be so happy about it. Junior year found us in Crossley. It was a good, substantial building, and we could do a lot without shaking it, but we were too busy most of the time. Wie had our lighter moments, but our subjects were tougher now., we had varsity sports, and wc were a little more serious. The class had expanded a great deal, so that we no longer knew everyone in it. Our buddies had grown another foot and a half, while the freshmen seemed smaller than ever. The football team had a few of our boys on it, and we were soon convinced that we were a vastly superior class and would not go through Shadow Lake. Anyway, we held out for a little over six minutes. From that point on, class spirit was strong. That fall we shook hands with all the return- ing alumni, and, if we were not Big Wlheels ourselves, we were friendly with those who were. The first Junior Party had rather low lighting, and was a great success. This harder studying had its compensations: the time flew. The ski team, that year, consisted of Bas- sette, Freeman, Davis, illunro, Field, Oble- sow, and two Seniors. Wie had a hand in wrestling and swimming too, but, for most of us, the winter term consisted of books and, occasionally, a little hell-raising to break the monotony. The spring term, on the other hand, was quite an experience. Wie watched the Seniors change slowly from rational behavior to weeping warm tears for Hermon, Dear Mother. Mean, hardened floor olhcers would sit gazing at the hills across the valley. Wie attributed it to weakness of spirit. Wie had the track team, and when we pointed it out to the Seniors, they agreed that we were a fine class. This was too staggering. Wie turned to our own affairs. The second Junior Party had even lower lights and was an even greater success. And, though we still studied, we found time to light a few firecrackers. Toward commencement, MSI" banners and pennants began to appear on every high place on campus overnight. A plot to hang a fourteen-footer on the side of West Hall almost succeeded. Once again, finals loomed up on the hori- zon. John Hightower was elected President of the Student Council, Bob Owen, President of the Senior Class, with ,lim Allen, Hank Putsch, and Dan Schwenk filling in the slate. The Concert finally arrived, with a lot of us in the choirs, followed by the lnterscholas- tics with that ,lunior track squad. Calkin, Owen, Pratt, and Bassette alone piled up thirty-one of our seventy-two points. Then came the last minute cramming for finals. They were killers! The Math 111 final will 11ever be forgotten. Somehow, We got through. A number of us stayed over commencement weekend. It was a new feeling to be operat- ing things ourselves, singing in the choir without having to rely on Steege and Roth for pitch, being waiters, headwaiters, moni- tors .... Sentimentalism was rife. Class Day arrived, and Genius George Kelly, John Mac- Fadyen, and John Hightower picked up their prizes. Commencement passed and we all went home to try out our drivers, licenses. Wie came back to the Hill for the last time, after a summer of cars and good pay. Wie found that, after a season of working out- doors, we could almost match Dr. Rubendall's handshake. It was great to be Seniors. The Cloud was ours, Senior Rock, The Senior Doors, and the receptions at Ford Cottage. Our subjects were senior too. The courses we had heard of were hereg Mr. Smitlfs English IV, lVl'r. Vvestinis Physics, and, as the Her- monite put it, HThe Senior grabbed his class- books . . . and hurried through the door . . . with pencil, books, and slide rule . . . and shovel for Bible 1117, Vive submerged into our books for that all-important first semester, stopping to take a breath for the Deerfield game, Thanksgiving, and the Yorthfield Sen- ior Party. Wie were sitting at Christmas Yespers when we suddenly realized how fast the time had gone. lin our first year, the Fall term had lasted sexen years, the second, six months, and the third and this o11e, about l'our weeks. Wie listened to the bi-annual Mwell Done" address, and made a break for the gates and home. If the Fall term galloped, Christmas - , 5 1 we-ts-, . .. . Q . , sr' mas. '?"N44lsC'f'Se' ei, ,. , 3 if -.Am X' -r ,K g vacation flew. Wie brought our New Yearls resolutions back to the middle of the third marking period, we had more than the usual college worries, with the world situation what it was. Lenny Harris took his physical, and we wondered which of us would be spending next Fall throwing grenades instead of foot- balls. Still, next Fall was a long way off, and Korea even farther. We kept on pretty much as before. The Blue Cloud A. C. was, by this time, firmly established, with President uUnc Worm" Lake and such stalwarts as Norton, Wheelock, Marfyak, 'GCl1etter" T. Towne, and Harry Bird all doing deep-breathing exer- cises. lt suffered a lack of prestige when Dick Ravotto turned out to be the only member with enough endurance to finish among the victorious thirty-three in tl1e Pie Race. The Cloud tried hard to redeem itself at the Faculty-Senior Stag Party, but found it dif- ficult to play bridge against mathematical combinations like Mr. Snow and Mr. Burdick. ln fact, they were creamed. A week before spring vacation just about the whole school came down with the flu. As a result, spring vacation began a week earlier and ended at the usual time, giving us four weeks. Unfortunately, this did not mean that we got away without taking College Boards. Wie took them, and needed the rest of the vacation to recover. Vllhen we came back, our Senior party was waiting for us, then the Gateway party, a few weeks later-two wel- come breaks in a fast-moving, but difficult term. The leaves were starting to come out. The snow, such as it had been, was long since gone, and, suddenly, the Sacred Concert was imminent. Our college acceptances had come in, and it made a difference in our outlook on Hermon. Wie did a lot of reminiscing in those days, and llle ,luniors began to regard us quietly. They had a pretty good class, some real leaders. The Concert, the 'Chat We had so eagerly awaited, the last Interscholastics any of us would run, all blurred together in a few weeks of mad activity. Then the finals were past, and everything about stopped. Wie got our diplomas, our prizes, signed Cate- ufays, shook a lot of hands, and then, we too were gone. The Class of '51 was no more. Only its members lived on, and its memories. CLASS OF 19 1 ROBERT T. OWEN C. JAMES ALLEN HENRY E. PUTSCH DANIEL S. SCHWENK ROBERT TITUS OWEN Amherst '6Tyte" 27 Post Ave., East Williston, N. Y.

Meany. In all our functions from the first "get acquaintedw picnic to the graduation ceremonies, the Meanys have done all they could to be of service. Throughout our four years at Hermon, Dr. Meany has been present at almost all our class meetings and has aided us in conducting them with a maximum of efficiency. He very capa- bly guided us in our selection of a class banner and class rings, and he is largely responsible for the success of our parties. Apart from his position as class advisor, Dr. Meany is highly regarded as head of the History department and advisor to the Outing Club. Above all else, he is known for the invaluable service he has rendered in his capacity as col- lege counselor. Many seniors have profited to no small extent from his honest and reliable advice. To Mrs. Meany, we are equally indebted for her active help and her unfailing friendship. Many of us, so-called hard- ened, confident seniors, have been truly grateful for her con- stant willingness to discuss, both individually and collectively, any problems that may have confronted us. Owing to her understanding of that unpredictable creature, the Northfield Girl, she has straightened out many a disillusioned and love- lorn senior. For their hard work and capable guidance, we Wish to offer to Dr. and Mrs. Meany our heartfelt thanks. 41 CLASS ADVISER K an 'VZ ki - Es ' EQ ' ll ' Q I , z, 'EL "' " " VA mf, f, D 1 . 3 , A, 5. 3 .,.. xg 'gg Jw fi: 3 5 Y 4 , , , ,.

TUBE T COU CIL NDER the able leadership of John High- tower, the Student Council of 1950-51 did much toward perfecting the policy, intro- duced by the preceding council, which em- phasizes the importance of the organization as a counseling unit as well as a disciplinary force. The misconception prevalent among many members of the student body that the major function of the Council is to act as a 'apolice forcei' was largely eliminated in the beginning of the year, and many invitations to attend the Tuesday-night meetings were extended with tl1e sole purpose of the Coun- cil's being enlightened as to specific campus problems with which certain students were more conversant. Through an increase in the number of Faculty-Council meetings, the respective members became more capable of coping with problems confronting both students and ad- ministration. After disentangling itself from a maze of isolated and minor questions, which arose early in the year, the Council concen- trated its efforts on the broader, more funda- mental issues at hand. One of the iirst prob- lems considered was that of orienting new students in the first few weeks of school. The Council also assisted in the formulation of the year's social program. Foremost among the many purposes of the Student Council is to offer capable individ- uals a chance to display qualities of leader- ship. With this in mind, the topic of the new constitution, which provides for additional student membership, was brought up and, once again placed before the school for a Vote. CHOIR 1111 its ranks swollen to i11c1ude a large portion ol' t11e student body, the Mount Hcrmon Choir was superb i11 its presentation of sacred music Illlfillg t11e 1950-1951 sc11oo1 year. The Choir, under t11e very capable guidance of Mr. Albert Raymond 211111 with the sp1e11did accompaniinent of Mr. Car1eto11 1J,HOlllIl!t'I116ll, made a striking impression with its finished renditions of sacred ant11e1ns at Sunday morning services. Hard work on the part of director, organist and choir made certain l11e success of the Christmas Vespcrs. Students, faculty, and visitors passed quietly i11to the chapel 011 thc night of 11e- eember 111. A hush descended on t11e assem- bled, and then t11e Choir, joined by the Estey Chorus of Northfield, filed down the candle- lit aisles to t11e 1I'1lllllp1lLlIlI strains of Sing We Noel. The brief service of Christmas 11111510 left a never-to-he-forgotten memory in t11e hearts of' all. Wiith t11e opening of t11e New Year, prepa- rations Were begun for the Sacred Concert, presented on May 6. The Choir, i11 conjunc- tio11 with t11e A Capella Choir llllfl North- fie1d's Estey C1l0I'llS, presented, with tradi- tional slxill and excellence, this inspiring climax to a year of outstanding work. Humhly grateful, t11e Choir, along with t11e entire student body, thanks Mr. 11ayn1ond and Mr. L,HOIllIl16I11f'll for their patient and e11icicnt guidance.

Wvhitc and led by president Robert Janes, the debating club has added another very active year to its long history. The weekly Friday night debates comprised the nlain program. During the fall the ac- tivity of the club was almost entirely or- ganizational, and the members learned the principles of debating and developed speak- ing technique. Later on, interscholastic de- bates were enjoyed by both the club and student audiences. TUBE T D ACONS . .HE student deacons are a group selected by a student-faculty committee to repre- sent the student body in church affairs and to aid in decisions as to the most helpful form ol' church worship. They have very effectively assumed responsibility for prayer at daily chapel, the taking of collection and the ushering on Sundays. Under the com- petent direction of Mr. Burdick and Mr. Whyte, they have made the church function as it could not possibly have done otherwise. OUT! G CL B HE outing club, always one of the most popular organizations on campus, has changed in many ways from what it was in previous years. The most significant differ- ence is the splitting into six divisions, which are the bicycle, hiking, mountain climbing, rifle, snowshoe, and skiing groups. Each im- mediately drew the support ol' its members. By this division, the Outing Club has suc- ceeded in reaching eVeryone's outdoor inter- ests. President Ron Decker and Adviser Dr. Nleany were fundamental in the clulfs suc- CHSS. HER 0 K IGHT AIQIYG up a dance band with almost no returning performers available is no easy matter, but Vlendy Kint-aid's Hernion Knights did more than fill this large order. After long hours of practice, they made their initial appearance at the Senior party this fall and won unanimous praise. Alllberg and Keith combined on the sax section with Davis on the trombone and Kincaid on the trumpet. Leete was featured at the piano, while Rohl beat out a hot rhythm on the drums. 1-vker, .' 4-ns.

BA D NDER the direction of Mr. William Pease, the band enjoyed an especially successful year. On the football field it maneuvered very skillfully because of extra marching practice and the capable leadership of ,lohn Brownlee. Although it used a few of the old Hwar horses," the band played many new selections from tl1e booklets, On Parade and College lllarchvs. In assemblies, in pep ral- lies, and in the stands it spurred Hermon athletes to victory. During the winter, tl1e band concentrated on more popular num- bers, including selections from Kern, Enesco, and Rimsky-Korsakov. The spirit of co-operation in the group helped to produce a fine band. er, H., Rohl, D., Fellows, R., kaid, W., Levine, L., Cold, C.

Mount Hermon classical orchestra reached new heights of success under the capable direction of Mr. Milton J. Aronson. Although it was commonly regarded as an additional means of visiting Northfield, the orchestra played an important role for the music lovers of Mount Hermon. On February 24, in conjunction with the Glee Club, it pro- vided in the form of a concert, delightful entertainment for both schools. Despite tl1e loss of several of last year's mu- sicians, the orchestra gained in ability and was a source of enjoyment to many.

Designed to be the reprc- sentative of our student body, it has taken into account all the criticisms brought up hy both students and faculty, and impartially discussed and acted upon them in open meet- ings. The idea behind the uHermonite" mot- to, Progress, has certainly been accomplished. Give credit where credit is due-how easy it is to follow this dictum in describing editor .lack Vernon, assistant editor Peter Palches, and faculty adviser Mr. ,lohn W'illiams. Their countless efforts in enabling the paper to maintain its literary standing will be hard to duplicate. Witlxout the willing and able Mr. Vlvilliams to encourage the board ill writ- ing accurate and interesting articles, much of the paper's success would not have been attained. In the early fall competition for the staff positions, he gave the inspiring news111e11 impressive lectures, including helpful sugges- tions as to how and what to write. A group of thirty-two students composed the 'tHermonite', board, each of them falling into one of three categories. The news boards, supervised by the editor, not only took care of the current campus happenings, but wrote the 'Campus Album stories, features, and the editorials. ,lack Bogan, Bill Kniesner, Dick Forsberg, Dick Oldham, and Bob Terrill did creditably in keeping us up to date on such matters. To the humorous '6Side Showf' con- tributions were made by all the members at weekly meetings in Cottage III.

GLEE CLUB 1TH a membership of over one hundred boys, the Glee Club was, during the cur- rent school year, the most popular organiza- tion on the Mount Hermon campus. Although a minimum of time was available each week for rehearsal, a well-arranged program was successfully rendered at the annual Clee Club concert, presented at both Mount Hermon and Northfield on February twenty-fourth. The program included such numbers as The Soldiers' Chorus, from Faust, Brothers, Sing Onfvg Secrets, and several other popular pieces. The Clee Club rounded out its annual activities with an excellent program present- ed at tl1e Commencement exercises. The Triple Quartet, representing the best voices in the school, was made up of John Bassette, Bob Wihite, Bob Vliimble, Ed Rich- ter, Charlie Hume, Tom Kepler, Hcnry Putsch, ,Iohn Marfyak, Don Clark, ,lim Lovell, Davis Rohl, annd John lNlacFadyen. This pop- ular group was featured in the Christmas Vesper service, the Clee Club concert, and sang at Alumni meetings and other gather- ings. The Clee Club provided students of mod- erate musical ability with a chance to learn music and to do some worthwhile singing. The club was composed of many boys whose voices were not developed sufficiently for choir sing- ing, but who wanted to do some choral sing- ing with an outstanding group. Because Mr. Raymond, director, and Mr. L'Hommedieu, accompanist, gave members invaluable guid- ance and training in choral singing the suc- cess of the musical programs is due primarily to their efforts. Members were provided with opportunities not only to sing good music but also to enjoy congenial fellowship. Meeting every Moiitlay night in Social Hall, the Glee Club combined good music with the will to Work. At the close of rehearsal at 8:00, all Went away with a feeling of deep satisfaction. HERMO PL VER HE schedule for the Hermon Players this year was a short one, but no less successful because of its brevity. During the Week of November 18-25, The Royal Family, a light satire of the illustrious Barrymore family, was very successfully produced as a three-act play at both schools. Northfieldis dramatic club, Tau Pi, joined with the Players in the production. Cast in the leading female roles were Barbara Solms, portraying the aged grandmother who refuses to retire, and Vir- ginia Brooks, who acted the part of the rep- resentative of the second generation of Caven- dishes on the stage. Donald Clark was featured in the leading male role, portraying the irresponsible, free- spending son in a household where money is spent before it is earned. Don was supported by Boris Oblesow, a comic feature for the Players during the past two years. Boris, as a boxing instructor, injected into his part his familiar brand of humor. The romantic influence was provided by lwary Thirlseld and David Clarke, a new- comer to the Players. The daughter in the Cavendish family, whose part was enacted by Miss Thirkeld, is determined that her pre- ordained career shall not ruin her happiness, and finally gives it up in order to marry her fiance. Alan Wvhipple and 'Conrad Osborne played the two other important male parts. Alan portrayed the parasitic brother of Julie Ca- vendish. Conrad Was the perennial business agent for the family. David Befeler, Ronald Decker, Robert Ter- rill, H. Dewey Dean, and Arnold Wvarren completed the cast. Ten Little- Indians, a mystery melodrama, had been chosen by the Players to be pre- sented on March 3, but the play was can- celled. The Production Manager, Talbert Dowling, and the head of the Property Committee, Melville .l0nes, should be congratulated for their excellent work, which added much to the success of tl1e comedy. Deserving of our utmost appreciation are Mr. William Morrow, Miss Genevieve Den- nison, and Mr. ,lohn Wvilliams, who contrib- uted unselfishly of their time and their pa- tience that the production could be the success that it was.

C M LAUDE HE 'Cum Laude Society, the equivalent of Phi Beta Kappa on the secondary school level, represents the highest goal in scholastic achievement. The seniors pictured here have fulfilled the requirements for election to the Society, not only by excel- ling in academic pursuits, but by showing, as well, good charac- ter, citizenship, and extra-curricular participation. Selection of candidates at Mount Hermon is made from the seniors Whose averages range in the upper tenth of their class over the junior year and the first four marking periods of the senior year. Dr. Rubendall is president of the Mount Hermon Chapter, and Mr. L'Hommedieu is secretary. These seniors, Cum Laude, Class of '51, have achieved real success at Mount Hermon. Outstanding today, they may well become the leaders of tomorrow. 54 Valedictoriun-Kepler Sulutatoriun-Reivhert GATEWAY NFORTUNATELY, the proper amount of credit is seldom given to the members of the Gateway Board, whose hard work and sincere interest made possible the publication of this annual chronicle. Their willingness to co-operate and their desire to produce a su- perior yearbook resulted in prompt and elti- cient work. For most of their efforts, the board members received little or no recogni- tion, and yet, they were always eager to help. Jim Allen, the co-editor of the 1951 Cate- way, not only handled with accuracy and patience his dillicult job of laying out the dummy and assigning the work, but was al- ways willing to take on added responsibility. To the business managers, whose task was certainly not an enviable one, goes the whole- hearted appreciation of the Board. Skip Pratt First rowAC. James Allen, Co-Editorg Rolf R.

This organization, sponsored by Mr. Mirtz, and comprising representatives from five continents, afforded its members the opportunity to express many varied view- points in the discussion of current happen- ings. Possibly the most discussed question was the problem of the United Nations relations with China. Wihether for diplomatic reasons or for lack of a majority vote, there were no ofhcers, however, Mr. Mirtz ably acted as arbitrator, having had fifteen years, experi- ence in China. In all the discussions the mem- bers were intensely interested, and there was always a satisfactory attendance. PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB HE Mount Hermon Photography Club has in the last decade become an extremely popular organization on campus. Headed by Darel Kadlec after John Wragg's resignation, the club had as its other officers for 1950- 1951 Secretary Ned Bannister and Treasurer Ted Hoskins. Mr. Schrieber was faculty ad- viser for the second year. Two cabin trips, a display in the library, and the annual snap- shot contest were its most publicized activi- ties. The club met officially once a week and on occasion profited from excellent movies emphasizing the proper photographic tech- nique. This was the third year of the exist- ence of the club since the war, and again, a threatened shortaffe of Hash bulbs began to be felt.

PRESS CLUB EEPING the folks at home posted on ath- letics and other phases of social life this year was the function of the Mount Hermon Press Club, headed by Chet Towne. The club contacts various newspapers and radio sta- tions in New England and New York to pub- licize the outcome of the HCYIIIOH varsity contests. The hometown papers receive news also of letter winners at the close of each season. The club meetings are held at the home of faculty adviser Mr. Baldwin. In the activities of the organization Bob Horton and Dick Wfhitney were especially helpful. Other boys who handled the paperwork are Bill Kniesner, Dick Siegrist, Eric Wfindus., and Armin Lindenmeyer. Chet kept up the good work of Beutha Burdge, 240-pound wrestler, who had led the club during 1949-'50. Seated-Horton, R., Towne, C., Lindenmeyer, A.g Siegrist, R., Decker, R.

This or- ganization afforded an excellent opportunity for boys previously unacquainted with the game to acquire a working knowledge there- of. The top six members took on the faculty early in February and emerged with a 6M- 6M tie. Following this, frequent individual matches were arranged between club and fac- ulty members, in which the students did very well. For the first time in the history of the school interscholastic meets were scheduled, but due to the flu epidemic they were called off. The success of this group was due largely to the efforts of Captain Larry Levine and Mr. Hutchinson, the faculty adviser. 21-VZESEEQ wk I W ,ga 1 -WWF i 1,5-ay-gjgyf dz 4, W V 4' Y W V, Aa ,im , Qui! 9:2 :2 'iii I Q, 59- ?

FO0TB LL UCCESSFUL is indeed the word for 1950. At least that is the feeling of those with an intimate knowledge of the varsity football team's record, even though that record was marred by one defeat. Although one of the smallest football squads in Mt. Hermon's his- tory, the 1950 aggregation worked hard, fought determinedly, and maintained an ever- increasing spiritwthree factors imperative for a successful season. Needless to say, much was necessary to produce this outfit. Messrs. Rineer, Wfestin, and Stearns, through their highly capable coaching and their ability to gain the players, respect and friendship, were rewarded with five victories, one tie, and one defeat-a very praiseworthy showing, consid- ering the strong opposition. Not only was the team limited in number, but also it lacked depth in most positions. The offense used mainly the Hwing-T,', but it employed likewise several special forma- tions. This attack was centered around Full- back Bill Bishop, who constantly plunged in- side either tackle. Hence, the defense was forced to watch him carefully. During the season, Bill scored four times-all tallies be- ing runs inside right tackle. It took John Bas- sette a while to ignite, but, from the beginning of tl1e second half of the Williston game until the last whistle of the Deerfield jaunt, it was impossible to quench him. John Wragg, a man wl1o collected bench splinters during last year's season, proved himself a very able quar- terback, from the first game until the last. Co-captain Lenny Harris, by combining speed, endurance, drive, and an amazing change of pace, scored eleven touchdowns and averaged 8.5 yards a carry. The backfield was well-balanced, highly co-ordinated, and possessed of indomitable spirit. However, the y a E t 7 front line is equally important in having a winning team. More often than not, games are decided by the work of the line. The backfield may receive the honors, but with- out the precision blocking, the sharp tackling, and the hard charging of a forward wall, any team is destined to lose. After the first game, it was obvious that Mount Hermon did not have a polished line. However, in practice, linemen kept charging and hitting each other day after day. Wllat resulted from this? Her- mon's downfield blocking clicked. In the Deerfield game, Johnny Bassette, for example, averaged 32 yards a carry. Four other Her- mon ball carriers each averaged better than 10 yards a carry in this season-ending game. The offensive line, which played such an im- portant part, consisted of Schwenk, Harring- ton, Hart, Aliber, Pratt, Lovell, and Field. The defensive platoon of Forbes, Harrington, Murray, Pratt, and Field, with Hart, Lovell, Harris, Shedd, and Ashcraft backing up the line, did an excellent job of breaking up bet- ter than average running attacks, and halted really expert passers, such as Deerfield,s Hil- dreth. Proof of Mount Hermon's defensive effectiveness is clearly seen in that opponents got only 51 points while Hermon drove over the goal for 169. The season began with a 13-13 tie with Cushing Academy. Cushing opened the scor- ing, but was tied, 6-6, at halftime, as the re- sult of Johnny Wragg,s tossing a touchdown pass to Harris with but minutes remaining in the half. However, tllat all-important extra point, which can win or lose a game, failed to materialize. Cushing scored once more in the third period, climaxing a 56-yard run sus- tained drive. Hermon, undaunted, fought con- tinuously, and, in the final seconds of play, Field made a spectacular catch of a Wragg pass to score. Sonny Allen bucked over for the game-tying point. It was homecoming day October 14, at W'illiston Academy, and her Alumni expected a Williston massacre of the northern invad- ers. Hermon won 19-6. After a see-saw first period, Bishop plunged 8 yards for paydirt. This was the game in which Johnny Bassette, substituting for the injured Allen, gave signs of being a football player. Although he did not score, he made valuable long runs, which set up T. Dfs for his teammates. Harris scored twice in the second half, on weakside runs, his specialty. Williston scored only once. The Hermon aggregation had won its first game. On the following Saturday the team from the hill played host to the Springfield J. V. team. Sparked by the brilliant offensive and defen- sive play of Lenny Harris, it made a thrilling second-half comeback following a discourag- ing start. To open the contest, a Springfield back intercepted a pitchout, ran 72 yards, and gave Springfield a 6-0 lead. A little later, Springfield grabbed another pass from the Hermon club, and soon the scoreboard read 13-0. Mr. Rineer, however, rallied the weary Hermonites with his halftime talk, and, im- mediately, they marched 80 yards to a touch- down, Harris scoring. Later, after recovering a fumble, Harris, Bishop, and Bassette car- ried the ball to the 7-yard stripe, from which Harris again tallied. Wragg passed to Forbes to tie the score, 13-13. A second fumble, re- covered by Siegrist, enabled Harris to chalk up his third T. D. of the afternoon. Hermon won the tilt, with the ball precariously rest- ing on her own one-foot line. A hard fought game at the Choate field on October 28 resulted in the only defeat for 'K 'tif 1 ' the varsity eleven. Hermon far outshone Choate in every aspect except scoring. The Maroon outrushed her oppo- nents 302 yards to 68, chalked up 20 first downs to Choate's 4, and gained 60 yards via the air to the win- ner's none. Our trouble was inside the ten-yard line. The team, six times inside Choateis ten, was able to tally just once. Bassette scored in the third period on an off- tackle run, but the kick was missed-thus Mount Her- mon lost, 7-6. At Kimball Union Academy, one week later, the Maroon, rebounding with fury, triumphed 12-0 over a heavy but slow opponent in a constant downpour. Early in the first period, Hermon moved, by means of hard running and vicious blocking, to the ten. From there, Bassette bulled his way across for the first of his two touchdowns. Much credit is due Bob Ashcraft, replacing the injured Wfragg, for his outstanding quarterbacking. Also, the line should not be overlooked. It did an excel- 62 lent job, displaying much improvement, espe- cially in its ability to tackle low and block hard. On November 11, Vermont Academy brought its whole student body to the Mount Hermon campus to witness the ensuing con- test. The Maroon linemen opened gaping holes and their downfield blocking was sharp. As a result, the backs distinguished them- selves witll long scoring runs. Bishop, Bas- sette, Allen, and Moffet each tallied once, and Harris, three times. The game ended with Hermon winning 46-0. The Deerfield game on November 18 ended the season with a bang. A crowd of over 2000 Harris and Bishop, Allen plunged over from the two. By the end of the second quarter, Hermon led 28-6. Bassette sped 75 yards for the first tally of the second half. More superb passing by johnny Wlragg landed the ball on the 21-yard line. From here, Allen drove through center for his second touchdown. After intercepting a pass, Harris caught a Wragg toss for a T. D. Bassette ended the highest scoring jaunt in Hermon-Deerfield history with a 70-yard jaunt off tackle. The final score: 54-121 This year, Co-captains led the Mount Her- mon varsity, something never before attempt- ed. Gil Aliber and Lenny Harris proved was stunned when, at the outset, Deerfieldis Hildreth passed to the two-yard line, fol- lowed by a line plunge for a T. D. The Green led 6-0 after only a minute of play. Enraged, the Maroon eleven quickly struck back. Har- ris broke away for 47 yards, and then Forbes caught a Wragg pass to score. Moffet split the uprights-his first of six conversions out of eight attempted. With the exception of one touchdown drive, the Green Wave from Deerfield was bottled up for the remainder of the game. Bill Bishop, after a sustained drive, catapulted through right guard for Her- mon,s second T. D. The next time the offense took over, W'ragg,s passing was excellent, and, following two completions and hard runs by themselves very capable leaders. Another un- orthodox event was the presentation of a foot- ball, autographed by most of the Navy foot- ball team, to the most outstanding Hermon player in the Deerfield game. The award went to ,lim Lovell, center on both offense and defense, who certainly earned it. Not only did his spirit last seven days a week all sea- son, but he improved steadily and always gave it everything he had. The Mount Hermon football team of 1950 was an exceptionally good one, and, despite the one heartbreaking loss, its record was highly successful. Certainly, it was a team of which the graduating seniors could be proud. First row-Chu, D.g Calkin, W., Moses, D., White, B., Capt.g Owen, R., Carlson, L.g Freeman, H.g Fellows, R.

OCCER 55 HE finest bunch of ball handlers I have seen in a long time,,' was the remark Mr. Forslund made as he watched the Hermon headers and toers in one of their scrimmages against B squad. Armed with seven returning lettermen, including Bob Owen, Lief Carlson, Rimas Kregzde, Boris Oblesow, Darel Kadlec, Bill Calkin, and Captain Bob Wlhite, and strengthened by Hap Freeman, Piet Boden- horst, Bob Fellows, Dave Rohl, Bill Gould, Dale Conly, Dan Chu, Alphonso Damiani, .lack Cheney, Bucky Moses, and ,Ian Marfyak, Coach Wyman led his team to a record of three victories, one loss, and four ties. In the initial bout of the season, played on the lower fields, the Whitemen outclassed a strong Nichols Junior College team in the first quarter. The game was very fast, but neither team could score. In tl1e starting rally of the third period, 'Captain Dondeau of Nichols pounded the ball at goalie Owen. In a magnificent attempt to stop the hurtling sphere, Owen flung himself headlong into the net, but was unable to block the kick. De- spite a responding rally led by Dave Rohl and Piet Bodenhorst, the Maroon failed to score, giving Nichols a I-0 victory. To make up for their one defeat, and to avenge the defeat suffered by the 1949 hooters, Captain Wihite led his men to a I-0 victory over Spring- field F reshmen. In a lively second period, Rimas Kregzde took a rebound off a Spring- field man and scored the first goal of the year. Owing to the strong defense of both teams, there was no more scoring, and Her- mon had won its first game. Weary, perhaps, from their long ride, the Hermon hooters could not get together until the third quarter of their game against Wil- liams College Freshmen. Kregzde again opened the scoring with an assist from Conly. Following this, Bill Gould shot a long, curv- ing ball into the corner of the goal, and then, Alphonso Danliani booted the third point through. In the fourth quarter, old faithful Kregzde drove another ball goalward with an assist from Kadlec to raise the score over the purple to 4-0. The second home game, with Keene State Teachers resulted in a 0-0 tie. The superb defense of Owen, Carlson, and Cheney, foiled repeated attempts to score. In the ensuing game, despite the cheering of the football men, the Maroon men were unable to score against the powerful Choate team. The opponents had a dangerous right-wing attack, which was beautifully held in check by Messrs. Owen, Carlson, and Cheney. B0d8HllOfSt came close to scoring, and Kadlec sent a long shot goalward which scratched paint from one goalpost. Despite two hard-fought overtimes, neither team could score. The next 0-0 tie came when Hermon failed to dent the nets against a strong University of Massachusetts squad. The most exciting and well-contested game of the season took place on the lower field when Hermon faced the Green Wave. Deerfield's triple threat left-wing, Lunt, was kept in his place by the shadowing tactics of fullback Lief Carlson. Bugs Rohl and Hap Freeman were outstanding in their midfield game, while Owen, Carlson, and Cheney held their usual brick-wall defense. Owen halted a hurtling penalty kick and made two other magnificent saves. The final score: 0-0. In the final game of tl1e season, Bill Gould opened the scor- ing with a short boot in front of the goal. Dale Conly then placed a long, right-wing shot into the Williston net. The Maroon scored two more goals, winning by a score of 4-0, and finally ending its long streak of scoreless ties. H' X :tx 1 ,0 If J E if if 1- 1 f ti? 2, Hqyx.

Three days later, Bogan, Thompson, VValker, Can- non, and Dixon triumphed over Williams Freshmen runners to chalk up their second perfect score. On October 18, the Harriers suffered their first defeat in a duel meet in fourteen years. Before a strong University of Massachusetts team they were beaten 24-32 with Bogan, Cannon, and Spain taking fourth, fifth, and sixth respectively. Three days later, at Deerfield Academy, Bogan cut two seconds from the home teamis course record, while Thompson, Laidlaw, Cannon, and Captain Russell followed closely to make it another perfect score. The seasonis second defeat came on October 28 when a powerful Choate team outran Hermon and won 36-19. Un No- vember 4, in the lnterscholastics at Moses, Brown, Dick Thompmn, John Cannon, ,lack Bogan, Bruce Laidlaw, and Dave Walker, who represented Hermon placed third, behind Exeter and Choate. ln the final meet of the season against American lnternational Col- lege, Boganis excellent form enabled him to break the Hermon 2:5-mile-course record by five seconds. The rest of the team came through to win this, their last meet of the year, by another perfect score. Tired of al- ways placing behind Bogan, Dick Thompson ran off with the first place medal in the an- nual five-mile Bemis Pie Race. Despite tlleir two losses, the cross-country men had a truly commendable season, for they set some im- pressive records. . , ' i JT' W. 5 ' fl + 3 11 'J t t f NNXD I, J I '97 . - Q 5 SWIMMI G f V 1 J L2 C 9' ffm, H .ak 1 fa: ,, . f , 3 X,-v A. ,iw-xuf.5.2'f iy+T'i,- N -if-X 'fl- v: 1TH the combination of Messrs. Bauer, Wlhyte, and Ward on tl1e coaching staff, the Hermon Mermen swam through their first winning season in three years. Backed by eight returning lettermen, and strengthened by new additions, the squad wound up the 1951 season with a record of four wins and two losses in dual-meet competition, and a place in the Trinity lnterscholastics. Bucky Moses and Chris Muhlert, roommates and co- captains of the team, inspired the men with their excellent spirit and their outstanding swimming. Facing a powerful team in tl1e initial meet of the year, the Maroon men lost to Springfield Freshmen by a score of 29-37. Even with a first and second in the diving by Darel Kadlec, ,lim Markham, and a first in the 200-yard relay, the team was unable to garner enough points to win. Swim- ming Wlilliston next in the Blue and Coldls pool, the mermen splashed away with an easy victory-the first one in three years. Bucky Moses, Dave Clarke, Linc jones, and the medley and freestyle relay teams all took first places to clinch the meet for us, 48-27. W7ith new confidence, the rapidly improving team drowned Amherst Freshmen 38-28. De- spite first places by Dave Holmes, co-captain Moses, Linc Jones, and Ted Hasbrouk, the meet was very close right to the end. How- ever, the 200-yard freestyle relay team came through to give us the meet. On February 17, for the first time, Hermon played host to a swimming team in the North- field pool. It was an occasion for great re- joicing, especially when the mermen defeated Wvilliston for the second time. ln the return meet, Moses, Jones, and Bill Gould swam away with first places to sew up the meet 46-29. The Trinity meet, also held in the Sem First row-Holmes, ll., Clarke, D., Muhlm-rt, C., Moses, D., Jones, L., Kadlcr, D.

Taking first place in every event except the final relay, Clarke, Could, Holmes, Don Huene, Moses, and Kad- lee garnered at least five points for us. Co- captain Muhlert, along with Huene and Jones, splashed his way to our final victory in the medley relay to give us our fourth win with a score of 49-17. ln the last dual meet of the year, the Hermon swimmers were defeated for the second time. At Deerfield, the Green team was too powerful for us to overcome. Moses swam a magnificent race to give us our first number-one placing. The closest race of the meet was the 150-yard medley relay in which Clarke, Gould, and Moses were pitted against Deerfield's fastest relay. The outcome was a dead heat, with both teams splitting the points between them, which made no change in the score. The last relay was won by Hermon when Holmes, Jones, Bruce Early, and Bill Vlfright garnered a first place. The final score turned out Hermon ZSW, Deer- field -19w. Staying over two days during spring vacation, the swimmers continued their practicing in preparation for the Inter- scholastic Championships held at Trinity Col- lege. Finishing fourth behind Hotchkiss, Deerfield, and Williston, the mermen com- pleted their best season in many a year, The credit goes to long hours of intense training, the hundreds of laps, and the capable coach- ing of Messrs. Bauer, Wllyte, and Warfl, which all helped to turn out a topnotch team this year. The days of practice in the North- field pool helped to familiarize the men with a twenty-five-yard pool, and kept them work- ing furiously as long as the female audience was present. The coaches, co-captains Moses and Muhlert, and manager Bill Reichert all deserve credit for their work in giving the swimming team its successful season. Next year will see the return of such out- standing performers as Linc Jones, Bruce Early, Bill Vfright, and Ted Hasbrouk. The team loses Moses, Muhlert, Clarke, Could, Huene, and Alex Ormond to graduation, but the prospects for 1952 season seem very good. HOCKEY -- -: flee ,W ' HE varsity hockey team, hindered by rain and warm weather, played in nine con- tests, winning four, losing four, and tying one. The season began with a first team com- posed largely of green players, most of last year's squad having graduated. Nevertheless, the team entered the R. P. 1. Preparatory School Hockey Tournament, December 28 and 29, and finished in a tie for second place. Paced by Baum, Shedd, and Barry, the team smothered Williston in its opener on January 10 by a score of 2-0. The Maroon then 10st to Willianis Freshmen, tied Cushing, and dropped three in a row to Deerfield, Stock- bridge, and Kimball Union. After hard practice, the Wy-men took their next three games, beating the Alumni 4-2, Williston Academy, for the second time, by a score of 4-1, and Vermont 2-1. A lack of good ice resulted in the cancella- tion of four of the regularly scheduled games. First row-Bushong, C., Bishop, C.: Maf'Fadycn, R.g Barry, J., Shedd, H.

BA KETBALL ITH the advantage of superior height, the varsity basketball squad topped the records of the teams of two previous years, winning nine and losing seven. Height, how- ever, was not the only advantage, for Bill Arnold, lanky captain of the quintet, and Phil Cone, who broke the school individual scoring record with 32 points, were the team's best play makers. The offense was charac- terized by smooth, sharp passing, and excel- lent shooting. III its opening game on December 9 the team, with three new students among the starting five, ran rough-shod over Darrow 73-15 in a practice encounter. Twelve men broke into the scoring colunm of whom three hit for double figures. Reuben McDaniel led the pack with 1-1 points, while Bill Arnold and Phil Cone scored 10 each. After vacation thc team continued its streak, rolling over St. lVlichael's 51-28. Cap- tain Arnold demonstrated his court prowess by hitting for 20 points, followed by 'Cone with 10. Travelling to Meriden, New Hamp- shire for their first regular game, the five succumbed to a desperate, last-quarter spurt by Kimball Union 47-41. The 'team started well, holding a 4-point edge at the half and leading 35-30 at the close of the third period. The fourth period was a different story, how- ever, for the home forces, led by Derr, who carried off the scoring honors for the night, surged back to lead by a -1-7-41 count at the end of the game. In their second consecutive away game, the Hermon team lost to Cushing 56-49. It was a bad day for Hermon, since the game was marked with frequent fouls. In fact, Her- mon's two tall men, Arnold and McDaniel, fouled out and Tuley and Harris had four fouls each. Hartman was top scorer for the Maroon, but the honors went to the opposi- tion again, for Kasprzak hooped up 23 for the home team. Q The quintet bounced back on the home court to trample Vermont 53-33. It was the Maroon all the way. Cone and Arnold led the pack again with 10 and 15 points respectively. Harris also did well, scoring 7 points. Play- ing before a home audience once more, the varsity five rambled over Choate 56-36. For the second time, Harris sparked the team with clever dribbling, dropping in 10, but it was Arnold who copped the laurels with 11. Playing on Deerfield! unfamiliar court was a sad experience for Hermon, since the Green rolled from the initial whistle. Spurred by the deafening roar from the student body, the Deerfield five poured through 13 quick markers. Undismayed by this shock, the Her- mon five struck back for 10. The Maroon five lost its touch in the second period, scor- ing only 1 point while the Green hooped up I0. The home team was not content though, and they continued to add to an already im- posing margin through the third quarter. Though scoring 20 markers in the final 8 minutes, the Maroon team could not over- come the huge deficit. The Hermonites were again put to the test by a strong Williston squad, featuring '1'ollis at center. W'ell-schooled by Nlr. Burdick in defending against Tollis, Hermon so entan- gled him that he made but three points. The visiting Williston squad was by no mcans a one-man team, however, and the five were hard put to squeak out a win in one of the lnost thrilling games of the season. Arnold dunked 16 for high man. With added confidence, the quintet routed Vfvilbraham in another home game breaking the tcam scoring record with an 86-32 tri- umph. Arnold and Cone were tops again, garnering 40 points hetwecn them. On the next playing date the Maroon avenged themselves for their first defeat at the hands of K. U. A. by winning 82-35. Four days later the Hermon quintet bowed in a heartbreaker at Vermont by a score of 51-50 although the fVlaroon led until the fourth quartcr. ln a fast, thrilling game with flush- ing Academy on the Hermon court, the Hill- toppers lost a slim lead in the third quarter and stayed behind to lose 52-46. The second Williston game was one of thc most spectacular encounters of the season. At the half, the fast Williston Quintet led, 35-26. Unable to defend against the tricky Vfvilliston attack, thc situation seemed hopeless. But then, the Hermon offense clicked. Wiorking like a machine, they came from behind to win, 61-49, scoring 16 points in the last quar- ter to the opponent,s -1. Three days later, the Hermon team, owing partly to Cone's being out of the line-up through illness, bowed to an experienced Amherst Freshman five, 46-39. Following this, the varsity quintet won an easy victory over Stockbridge by a score of 72-50. uf!! I I, 'ff if y The final contest of the season was the seeond Deerfield game at Mount Herxnon. Throughout the first half, neither team was ahle to take a definite lead, Hermoifs offense was marked by sloppy passing and inability to set up plays. At the end of the second quarter the score stood 20-19 in favor of the home team. ln the third quarter, the Hermon offense eame alive, scoring 24 points to Ueer- field's 10 and leading, at the end of the third quarter., hy 15 points. Then came the fatal fourth period in which Deerfield scored 19 points, playing flawless basketball on both offense and defense. At the final buzzer, the score was knotted, 4-8-48. After a brief rest., the tense and weary teams began the three- minute overtime. Two baskets and a foul shot put the home team ahead, 53-50. ln the re- maining minute, DeerHeld tied the score once more. ln the second overtime period, both teams scored 4- points in quick succession. Deerfield then took a rebound off her own board and dropped in the winning point. The final score: 59-37. Although the Maroon lost two very close games and had some difficulty on away courts, the season was highly successful. The games were all well-played and hard-fought to the final whistle. I- 3 V f X!! ,111 Left to right-Mr. Stearnsg Davis, Hg Stainton, D.g Uhlesow, li.g lfreeman. H.: Judson, A.g KII G NDER the expert guidance of lVlr. Stearns, though plagued hy a lack of snow, the '51 skiers finished with one win and two losses i11 dual meets, a fourth in the li. U. A. Carnival, and a second in the tri-school meet at Vermont. Direct from eollege and the Middlebury ski team, Mr. Stearns greatly improved the boys, technique and form. Elected captain of the team, ,lohnny Bassette really earned his letter. He placed first in all but one eross-country raec, and in that he earned a second. Despite Hap Freematfs first in the jumping, Johnny Bassette's first in the cross-country and second in the jumping, the snow- birds lost their first meet to a strong Vermont aggregation. After placing fourth in the K. lj. A. Carnival, the team came baek to defeat Deerfield in a thrilling meet. Unce again Hap won the jumping, and Johnny took a first in the cross-country, and a second in the jumping. In a return meet, the Hermon snowbirds succumbed for the second time to a powerful Vermont team, In the final meet of the year, the Hermon men placed second hehind Vermont in the tri-school meet. The men did very well in defeating a strong Exeter group. Captain johnny Bassette, Hap Freeman, Boris Ublesow, Everett Davis, and Dave Stainton all deserve credit for doing a fine job. Uwing to the poor weather conditions, practice was hindered, and several meets had to he called off. Despite the had luck, the team gained much valuable experience and had a comparatively successful season. Bilravllty . ....... , we tx ...

To Mr. V. A. Campbell belongs much credit. He developed a some- what average team into a truly spirited crew of grapplers. The lack of experience proved the deciding factor in every meet as the Hermon matmen constantly faced more sea- soned opposition in the oldest of man's sports. Unlike the television professionals, Hermon wrestlers displayed themselves as able com- petitors, fighting and giving their all from whistle to whistle. High scorer for the Ma- roon octet was Johnny Leyden, who won three of his five matches. The season opener on January 16 matched the varsity against a superior Choate team. Leyden lost by a decision, but Rene Gonzales easily vanquished his man, his match turned out to be the afternoon's only Hermon vic- tory. Following this contest, uSeaweed" Vlfalker, representing the 137-pound class, dropped a decision. Then Wvoodring was pinned, Rathkopf was outpointed in the l57- pound tilt, Costanzo and Bodenhorst also suf- fered pins, and Skip Pratt, the heavyweight, lost a close match, 6-5. Traveling to Wfilliams College on January 20, the Campbellmen encountered a more experienced Wvilliams Frosh team. However, Leyden immediately pinned his man and Hermon led 5-0. Although Gonzales and Walker lost, Captain Wooclring ably handled his opponent, winning 8-3. Vllitli Rathkopf, Costanzo, Bodenhorst, and Pratt losing their matches, the scoreboard read 24--3 at the end of the meet. The third setback of the year came on the afternoon of January 27 at Springfield. First row-Brown, P., Bodenlmrst, l'., Costanzo, ll., xX'D0lll'lIlg, M., Rathkopf, D., Walker, D., Gonzales, R.

Third row-Morton, R., Collier, R., Engvall, R., Butler, W., Whitt-, A., White, M., Mr. Campbell. .J ---un ,lohnny Leyden won easily, as did Gonzales: Pete Brown, wrestling his first varsity meet. was pinned. Woodring won hy a forfeit. ,lim Lovell tangled with former Hermonite Bentha Burdge, last year's 250-pound heavyweight, and was pinned in the second period. Thus, the score stood 23-13. The seasonis worst defeat was undergone as the Hermon matmen howed to Amherst Freshmen on February 10. Again, 123- pounder ,lohn Leyden was sueeessful, hut all other eontestants suffered defeat. This was the first varsity engagement for Lowden, White, and Butler, who performed well un- der the eireumstanees. The team met its strongest prep sehool opponent on lfehruary 24 when it went to defeat at Milton Aeademv 21-115. Everyone wrestled well. and, considering the three-hour trip and the faet that no Hermonite was pinned, the eontest made the 1951 season at 1east a partial sueeess. 1.eyden, Brown, Wvalker, Vvoodring, Hathkopf, Costanzo, and Bodenhorst all were on the short end ol' deeisions. However, Skip Pratt provided Her- mon's three points when he won by deeision in the heavyweight division. The J. Y. grapplers enjoyed a slightly more sueeessful season, winning two and dropping two. While losing to Choate 20-11 and to Milton 15-11, they nevertheless fought hard and maintained an ever-increasing spirit, go- ing on to trounee 1-Jarrow Sehool 19-11 and Arms Academy 38-0. The J. Yfs, i11 addition to supplying first-string material, proved in- valuable as a means ol' keeping varsity n1en on their toes. With Leyden, Gonza1es, 1.owden, Peyton. and Wadleigh returning next year, Nlr. Camp- hell hopes for a strong team. -Q E V' 'X- T 17217 -. 1, 'wx 1 Kit t ' 1 Xxfk is Y First ron'-Holappa, ll.: Carlson.

Returning letterman 'Skin lVlankowski has been elected captain of the 1951 sluggers. Dave Hartman is first base- man, Bob Ashcraft is second baseman, and Dodd Vllragg holds down the third base po- sition. Nlankowski covers shortstop, and ,l0llI1 Wragg, Lief Carlson, and Don Bennett make up the outfield. Phil Cone, a new student, is top hurler for the varsity nine and is ably caught by Mal Brown. Supporting Cone on the mound are Bill Arnold, Gerritt Vanderveer, and Dale Conly. Uutfield substitutes are Harold Ho- lappa and John Hart, and strengthening the in- field is Dave Moffett. Though early in the season, the teamis high spirit and morale, together with its playing, makes the prospects appear quite good for a successful season. LACROSSE APTAINED by Dave Rohl and Dick Siegrist, and sparked by three returning lcttermen, the 1951 lacrosse squad has hopes for a very successful season. With the coaching of Messrs. Wlyman and Stearns, and a good deal of hard playing, the Maroon aggregation looks forward to some winning encounters as it faces such for- midable opponents as Harvard Frosh, Andover, Vlanhasset, Exeter, Williams Frosh, and Decr- field. For the seasonis first game, the scoring punch of the attack will consist of Dick Siegrist, Dave Rohl, and Bob Sullivan, while Ted Newmarker, Bob Nlerwin, and John Hightower will support them at midfield. Gil Aliber, Phil Readio, and Bob Vlihite, at defense, will protect goalie Kim Vfheelock. In the way of reserves, the team has attacklnen Baum, Munro and 'Crowellq midfield- men Eckcl, Vlloodring, and Vfalker: defensemen Butler, Bodenhorst, and Mortong and goalie Oblesow.

Coaches Snow, McVeigh, Burdick, and Forslund deserve much credit for their un- ceasing work, not just this spring, but for the past three years. The team's schedule includes four dual meets, the Interscholastics and the First TOIl"Sl'llWl'Ilk, ll., Field, J., Chatman, ll., llratt, L., Harris, L., Cheney, J., Bassctte, ,l.'

As to the strength of the team, the field events seem to have improved somewhat since last season. ln the pole vault, Owen and Kad- lec should do exceptionally well. in the weights, opposing teams will find Pratt, Cheney, Bassette, and Allen hard to heat. Rounding out what should prove to he a high-scoring outfit, the runners are experi- enced and in good condition. The mile event is packed with such cross-country lettermen as ,lack Bogan, Ronny Decker, and Dick Thompson. The team is also strong in the half-mile and the quarter-mile events. Al- though the sprints are weak on the whole, Steve Hollister should win points for the Maroon in the 220. The hurdles should pro- vide no problem with record holder Calkin, supported by Arnold and Holmes. e 1 9 Arnold, J., Howe, S., Mc-Daniel, R., llevlolf, J., Bannister, A., White, M., Bogan, A.'
