The true purpose of this yearbook will surely not be realized for many years, it cannot be disclosed either in pictures or in print. Its value lies rather in the memories which will be restored to its owner in the time to come, memories of happiness, memories of heartache, memories of life on the Hill, a life gone forever, yet very much alive in the heart of each loyal Herman son. The l952 Gateway is your book. Take it. Treasure it always. For within is contained the story of an inestimable influence upon you-life at Mount Hermon School.

White, '20, supplies a present-day Hermon contact through LESTER P' WHITE the quarterly Alumni News for over ten thousand B.A., B.D., M.A. alumni living throughout the world. Moreover, CLmk'YaJe through his visits to the various Hermon Clubs now active in thirty-four areas of the United States, Mr. White keeps the alumni directly in- formed. The secretary is assisted by several alumni committees as well as by the president, vice-president, and fifteen members of the Alumni Council which directs the Association. Dwight L. Moody's statement, "Hermon's greatest endowment will be a living endow- ment," has been verified by the cooperative alumni who each year donate a sum of money greater than the income from an investment of over a million dollars. seulons is 'CL we uw gl' QM CLASS ADVISOR N sIckness or In health for better or for worse these were the self Imposed condltaons under whlch Mr Edmund Alexander the tall of 1948 accepted the responslblllty of guldlng to the best of hIs abIlIty the Class of 1952 In llS four year stay on the Hull From the very beglnnlng Mr Alexander undertook hIs Iob wIth the SCTIOUS Intent of combInIng all the members of the class Into a fellowshIp marred by no clIques or abused mInorIty groups To a marked extent hIs goal has been reallzed Class cooperatlon has slgnaled the green llght at lust about every turn Success found Itself Inseparable from class meetmgs class partnes Informal gathervngs Indeed from almost every 0ClIVl1Y In whlch the class as a whole partlclpated The reason for thIs may be readuly seen Where able advIsershIp combnnes Wllh the wIllIngness to follow and to learn nothIng IS beyond realIzatIon The Class of 1952 owes to IlS advlser Mr Edmund Alexander recogmtuon whuch far exceeds that whIch the Inadequacy of thls page can bestow In truth how well can any words offer appre clatlon to a man who asks none' HIs reward IS better expressed through the admIratIon the loYaIty and the respect held by all sennors for a man who has guIded them worked wIth them taught them a man who has become a part of them 16 CLASS HISTORY HE beginning of the four years for the class of 1952 was a sunny September 15, 1948. Dr. Rubendall initiated us to his handcrush, we stumbled through Holbrook and returned to the sun, bewildered Freshmen. Old veterans with Student Council bands on their arms led us to Cottage Row .... Somehow we survived the first day. We were swept through the first half-week- the aptitude tests, the first classes, the endless meetings. We took our places under the bal- cony in Chapel and Camp Hall. Mr. Alexander rubbed of? some of the homesickness that first week-end with the Freshman Picnic. We gct into the swing of things romping away Sunday afternoons on the varsity field and singing Fol-De-Rol with fitting Freshman con- fusion. ln short we struggled through the fall, mark- ing our progress by the Rope Pull, Thanksgiving, and the Christmas Vespers. The last week before vacation emerged from that three-month blur. We spent it wailing over Mr. Stent's vacation Bible test. The glorious day finally arrived, with a "Well done" from Dr. Rubendall, we took up our suitcases, stuffed with our every possession, and raced home for three weeks of Paradise. We returned and broke into the social calen- dar with the Freshman Dance. The morning after, we held our first session in rolling up crepe paper. Miller, Windus, Wells and Wyllie were elected officers. The winter term sped by, high- lighted by Cottage IV's indoor snowfight and some studying. Vacation arrived and we has- tened home to flaunt our three weeks of leisure. The spring term started with the yo-yo fad and softball games. We gaped from the balcony steps at the Sacred Concert. As the "weeks left" dwindled into a handfull, Miller, Golder, Williams and Wyllie were named Sopho- more officers. We goggled at the display of athletic talent in the Interscholastics. And we goggled at our Hrst finals. The year ended, leaving us taller and a little smarter. We stacked away our yo-yo's, tugged our trunks down to Overtoun, and left for one hundred days of vacation. Fifty-four old hands and sixty-one new Sopho- mores burst into Overtoun on the opening day of 1949. lt was destined to be a spectacular year for the cocky Class of '52, We went extra- curricular, swept through two undefeated J, L, seasons, and grew up in Overtoun's echoing halls. Golder was dorm president and Kraft 4 class treasurer in place of the parted Wyllie. The fall was a mixture of sports, canasta, and earnest study. The Sophomore Party passed in a blur of fish nets, blind dates, and rolled up crepe paper. Huckabee was challenged by Arnold and Vandervliet for class Casanova. Bob Hume fell out of his third tioor window. The days passed as the clicks of Pop Scranton's timeclock. We counted minutes through Decem- ber, and closed the fall term with the unfor- gettable fioor s kits. Winter meant basketball-Mr. Mirtz had his second winning team. The Bauery Boys breezed through the Overtoun League decked in their green shirts. On Founder's Day they crushed Overtoun's other sculpturing aspirations with "The Hatfields and the McCoys." First, second and fourth floors trudged to their classes with Messrs. Williams, Donovan, and Bossette, only to emerge daily in complete defeat. Miniature golf bloomed with the green grass after spring vacation. Mr. Wyman began his series of late parlor meetings and wrapped them up with a six A. M. cleanup. Third fioor dominated the dormitory again, this time on the softball field. Miller, Golder, Conly and Kraft were the slate chosen for the Junior year. With the flurry of an overwhelming victory in the lnterscholas- tics, June arrived. We sunned on blankets and boned for the final exams. They came, and we passed. With the last chorus of the Mikado and a few firecracker bursts, our second year suc- cumbed to summer vacation. The setting for the Junior year was Crossley. We were upperclassmen, we used the Junior Doors. Our rooms hummed with radios and phonographs-they were made legal. The school had bought the store. Beveridge Hall was a gaping pit between the Library and Holbrook Hall. As Juniors, we began to make a name for ourselves. There were Juniors on every varsity first-string. The Seniors drenched us in the Rope Pull, but we slopped back to Crossley still chant- ing l-9-5-2. We suffered through the "man's courses"-Chemistry with Dr. Bowman, Math lll with Mr. Westin, and American Lit with Mr. Baldwin. Mr. Whyte provided a perpetual Side Show in Bible lll. Somehow the fall seemed to go faster than before. We erased Deerfield, 54-l2. Dick Miller accepted the One-Tined Fork at Thanksgiving. Mr. Podaril was accused of shotgunning a cow. The last few weeks of the term swam by in a whirl of cider iugs and hour tests. Mr. Stearns iuggled away the last few minutes of the fall term in his magic assembly, and we left for home. We came back to the winter term cmd another varsity season. In January, Mr. Beveridge dedi- cated the new classroom building. In February we raised the snow masterpieces, "Trip to the Moon," i'Lincoln," and "The Kremlin and China." ln March nearly all one hundred forty- five of us caught the flu. But it was worth it, we got an extra week of vacation. After a month of recuperation we were ready for the spring term. The Class Dance, 'South Pacific," marked a new high for Juniors. Amid the confusion of water-system pits and steel- beam riveting, we started the spring sports and voted in favor of the new constitution. As the Seniors prepared to leave the Hill, we began the task of taking their places. The list of Junior tableheads was posted. The last month arrived, and new ballots passed our hands every day. The school chose Dale Conly the first Stu- dents' Council President. The Class of '52 named Miller, Golder, Morton and Heydon to be Senior officers. Williams and Demos were the new Hermonite editors. Sixteen of us were chosen to be floor officers. Suddenly finals were upon us. We took them and hurried back to West Hall to start a week's work over Commencement and Reunion. We got a pre-season tryout of the Blue Cloud, went to lunches without ties, and worked. lt was a memorable week, but summer jobs were wait- ing, so we left with no protest. We were back early in September, l95l, with a new outlook on Hermon. Now "next year" meant college. Marks, recommendations, applications, and college boards were to be a very large factor in the last school year. The underclassmen arrived, and we sat down in our tablehead seats each with a Senior's feeling of responsibility. We ushered our Little Brothers to Ford Cottage that first Sunday, and thought of that forgotten age of three years past when we had been Freshmen. But there was little time for reminiscing. We donned our varsity uniforms with a prayer for an unde- feated season. God smiled on our plea. Foot- ball rolled up seven victories. Soccer beat Deer- field. Cross-country became the New England champs. We attacked our books with an unfamiliar earnestness and dodged the midnight visits from Mr. Dollar. There was a new sense of leader- ship in the class. We sat in the front rows in church and assembly. We pulled the Juniors through Shadow Lake with the traditional heaves on the dry end of the rope. We dominated the extra-curricular field. Golder, Heydon and Cannon started their tasks as Gateway editors. The gym was transformed into the "Brown Derby" at Hollywood and Vine, for the Senior Dance. Picture sittings and college visitors reminded us throughout the fall that graduation was com- ing nearer every day. But Christmas came first. We sang in the Vespers with fuller appreciation and left for home and New York reunions. The winter term and the last half of the third marking period started simultaneously on Janu- ary 4. ln a fitting elevation of our status, we shifted all our classes but Physics and Economics to the modern Beveridge Hall. In an eleventh-hour effort for high marks on the college forms, we plugged extra hard for Messrs. Smith, Donovan, Morrow, Morse, Snow, Bauer and Westin. Rain erased the Founder's Day snow sculpture. ln the maze of themes, quizzes, hour tests, and Bible notes, we reached spring vacation. Most of us stayed two extra days for the college boards. We began the spring term with a faithful count of the days left until graduation. How- ever, with the constant work we did not have much chance to savor the months of April and May. The varsity games, the Gateway Dance, and the Chateau fling left only study halls for study. College acceptances arrived. We went to our last review sessions and spent our last hours poring over Macbeth and chute problems. The finals loomed as the last hurdle-we took a deep breath. Four days later we started breathing again. The books were forgotten, except for the Gate- ways, which took on a hue of blue as we refreshed our memories of the past four years. We held our banquet and heard the Class Will. Class Day arrived with its speakers and its awards. We celebrated our last night in the Auditorium as we watched or took part in Patience. We woke up Sunday morning with a mixture of feelings. lt was our last day on the Hill-the graduation service was only a few hours off. Through tests and honors, varsity letters and Northfield dates, we had stridden to the last four steps. In our caps and gowns we climbed them gratefully, grasped our diplomas, and matched the strength and vitality of Dr. Ruben- daIl's handshake.

Here is an elected body of twenty-five boys who respect, consider, and pass judgment upon the opinions and suggestions of their fellow stu- dents. lt is a group which because of self-experi- ence and contact with both students and faculty is able to face realistically the many problems which arise during the school year, and which through honest effort at all times strives to repre- sent the best interest of the student body The past year has been a testing period a time when a newly organized Students Council working under an entirely new school consti- tution, has had to fight oft severe criticism and carry on with the job of demonstrating that a large, widely representative council can work effectively and will work efifectively, if given but a partial opportunity .... Yes, throughout the school year, the Students' Council, inspired by the indomitable leadership of President Dale Conly, has gone about its work quietly and efficiently. No vociferous praise or thanks was ever asked, or for that matter ever given, yet a determination to bring to Mount Hermon School a student government of which it could be justly proud was present in the heart of every council member A precedent has been set it is for those who follow to improve by the light of time and experience irst row S der E Lnphear D Ahcraft R Mill r R Conly D President Golder K Cannon edon C Second row Leyden J Bergstrom P Midwood G Parker A Rkert Carver Murray J Third o Tilden J Glocker A Wright W Dr Rubendall Mr Burdick King P Briggs W I i . . , . . . . , .

The organization staged several intramural debates during the fall term, and presented an assembly program in which President Ho and Robert Gile expressed their ideas on the topic, "Resolved That We Are Losing the Present Conflict With Soviet Communism." These debates helped club mem- bers gain valuable experience, which enabled them later in the year to compete with con- fidence against teams from Cushing, Deerfield, Williston and Northampton High School.

STUDENT DEACONS HE outstanding group known as the Student Deacons and headed by the Rev. Mr. Whyte and Mr. Burdick, has done much in the spon- soring of church activities during the school year. Besides taking collection, scheduling prayers in daily chapel, and aiding in the Holy Com- munion Services, the Deacons have been active in outside projects. One of the most important of these was that of providing a Social Outlook Week for the entire school, featuring guest speakers and climaxing in a work project at a camp for underprivileged children. This group also represented Mount Hermon in several stu- dent religious conferences with other schools. OUTING CLUB HE l95l-'52 Outing Club played its usual important role in the life of the school. Em- bracing more than a fifth of the student body in its fold, the organization was able to branch out into numerous fields of endeavor and spon- sor many different activities. The success of the Outing Club was due largely to the splendid cooperation of all de- partments. Dr. Meany, the advisor, Ian Walker, president, Richard Thompson, vice-president, Richard Morton, secretary, and David Walker, treasurer-all gave generously of their time and energy to make the club as popular as it was. The club was divided into six interest groups in order to give the students a chance to devote more time to their particular hobbies. The divi- sion called for groups in hiking, mountain- climbing, nature study, riflery, skating, and ski- ing. The rifle club, new last year, accomplished a great deal towards making itself one of the most popular sections. With Mr. Compton acting as advisor, and Lee Sickler as leader, the club succeeded in completing a range and planned the way for actual shooting. Perhaps one of the most important events of the two semesters was the opening and the use of the South Hill ski tow. This has been a chief project of the Outing Club for the past three years. Besides generous contributions of time and labor by its members, the club donated more than a third of the funds necessary for its construction. This money was raised through the sale of programs and cokes and through other concessions at school activities such as football games and square dances. The tow is now under the supervision of the Athletic De- partment. In addition to these proiects the club was active also in the social life of the school. Dur- ing the winter it sponsored several skating parties with Northfield, and in the spring held its annual "cabin party," also a ioint affair.

BAND HE Mount Hermon Band, under the direction of Mr. Arch Swift, once again has played an active and significant part in the life of the school. Striking up with exciting marches, the result of tireless work, the group inspired tre- mendous spirit at football games during the tall. In the latter half-year the band was ree assembled to play a more serious type of music. The band proved its mastery of many difficult numbers in concerts given at both Northfield and Mount Hermon. Praise should be extended to Mr. Swift for his excellent directing, and to each band mem- ber for his cooperation throughout the year. ORCHESTRA HE Mount Hermon Orchestra again this year contributed much toward the musical program of the Northfield Schools. Familiar to most of us through John Brownlee's "twenty minutes to four" announcements in West Hall, the orchestra worked tirelessly from September to June prac- ticing every Tuesday evening at Hermon and every Wednesday afternoon with a similar group at Northfield. No small credit goes to Mr. Milton J. Aronson, under whose capable direc- tion the orchestra achieved such a high stand- ing. The concerts given during the month of February and the operetta Patience, in which the orchestra played such a large part, were both received with deep satisfaction.

CHOIR N the very first Sunday in September the student body was impressed by the work of the Mount Hermon Choir. Since then it has grown to realize that the work of this particu- larly capable musical organization has been made possible only through the tireless efforts of Mr. Albert Raymond, director, and Mr. Carle- ton L'Hommedieu, organist. This year over one hundred boys participated in choir activities. The group was divided into two equal parts, A and B, which alternated throughout the year at the regular Sunday morning services. A Capella Choir, consisting of forty outstanding choral voices, took over the duties on special occasions. After long consideration, Mr. Raymond chose the following boys to be members of the Triple Quartet: Charles Cogswell, Kenneth Golder and Judson Wells, first tenors, Charles Bushong, Paul King and Gordon McKeon, second tenors, James Jensen, Kenneth Lindfors and Boris Oblesow, first basses, David Hartman, Arnold Warren and Dodd Wrogg, second basses. A short time before Christmas Paul King was elected president of the choir. Judson Wells carried out the duties of choir secretary for the entire year. On December 9, the combined choirs of the Northfield Schools presented in magnificent style the traditional Christmas Vesper Services at both Northfield and Mount Hermon. The beautifully blended student voices, singing carols from many different lands, proved to be so effective that the service was transcribed by station WPJB of Providence and sent over the airwaves on Christmas Eve. It is doubtful that any witness will ever forget the unusual program of sacred music presented by the combined Northfield Schools in the audi- torium on May 4. This presentation, the annual Sacred Concert, followed the basic plan of the Church Calendar from Christmas to Easter, and was climaxed by the tremendously inspired sing- ing of 'tTurn Back O Man" by one thousand young people.

GLEE CLUB ROM Social Hall, echoing across campus each Monday night, comes the sound of music. The singing of one hundred enthusiastic boys, under the direction of Mr. Albert Ray- mond, fills the air. This popular activity is none other than the Mount Hermon Glee Club. After several months' preparation the T951- '52 glee club made its first appearance on February 2 at the Northfield School for Girls. The program consisted of four numbers by the entire club and two by the Triple Quartet, a group of twelve boys chosen to render special selections and to give several off-campus pro- grams of their own during the year. Three weeks later this performance was repeated in an assembly presentation at Mount Hermon. On both occasions the club was received in a very enthusiastic manner. To the Northfield Schools Choral Director, Mr. Albert Raymond, and to Mr. Carleton L'Hom- medieu, head of the Mount Hermon Music Department, must go deep praise for being in- strumental in promoting inter-school relationship through the first "'Festival of Music," held in the Northfield auditorium on March 8. "Brothers Sing On" was the adopted theme as the glee clubs from Kimball Union, Vermont, and Willis- ton Academies joined with Mount Hermon in presenting a stirring musical program, slated, because of its success, to become an annual affair in the life of each school. The final glee club project was the com- mencement week-end production, with the Northfield School for Girls, of the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta Patience. The maiority of the club participated as an off-stage chorus, while certain boys served as principals and stage- chorus members. Charles Bushong, David Hart- man, Paul King, Boris Oblesow and Lee Poole filled the lead roles in such remarkable fashion that praise became the only comment of the people fortunate enough to see the production. "lt's been a good sing, fellows." HERMON KNIGHTS HE Hermon Knights, a group of eight boys with a flair for music and a willingness to engage in hard work, have completed a busy year of entertainment. The dance band played a schedule, which included many Northfield house parties, class parties, and the Gateway dance. Efficiently guided by Mr. Snow and directed by student leader, William Davis, the organiza' tion made a decided hit during the first term. Then, later in the year, using money donated by the various classes, the band was able to im- prove still more and to meet the request for more popular music. The Knights must be praised for their finished work. FRENCH CLUB HE joint Northfield-Mount Hermon French Club is unique in being the only extra-cur- ricular group which relies upon academic work for its basis. The two-fold purpose of the organ- ization is to provide a chance to learn French through actual conversation, and to afford an opportunity for becoming better acquainted with French life and customs than classroom time permits. Meetings are held bi-weekly on Friday evenings and alternate between the two schools. Sincere thanks go to Mr. McVeigh and Miss Taylor of Mount Hermon, and to Miss Reynolds and Miss Liniger of Northfield, whose interest and effort have made the sixth year of existence possible for the French Club.

INTERNATIONAL CLUB N every other Sunday since last September an interested group of students has met in the green room of Social Hall to discuss infor- mally and debate international and national topics. This organization, composed of boys from many nations and named the International Club, gathered to inform one another of their native customs and habits in order to gain a better understanding of foreign problems and attitudes. Led by Boris Oblesow and advised by Mr. Mirtz, this group has completed a full program. This included informative visits to various P. T. A. meetings and Rotary Clubs in the area, and an interesting assembly program here at school. I CAMERA CLUB HE Mount Hermon Camera Club, under the leadership of Paul King and faculty advisor, Mr. Dean Stevens, has successfully finished a busy year of campus photography. With the help of an alumni contribution of two hundred dollars worth of darkroom equipment, interest in the club was increased, and much practical work accomplished. Meetings, held on Friday nights, were enriched by demonstrations and movies which combined to increase knowledge of darkroom technique and technical operations. The group also sponsored a pictorial library exhibit and photograph contest, which enabled outsiders to see and appreciate some of the artistic accomplishments of club members. HERMON PLAYERS HIS year proved to be an important one in the history of the Hermon Players. Their successful escapades began with the production of My Sister Eileen on December 7 and 8. The play cast twenty-seven performers, including members of Northfield's Senior dra- matics club, Tau Pi. Chosen for the leads were Mary Thirlkeld as Eileen Sherwood, and Dawn Selin as her sister Ruth, while Boris Oblesow portrayed the part of Mr. Appopolus, a Greek landlord. Strong support was supplied by Winnie Bogardus, Barbara Haun, Margaret Shreve, Jean Souter, Robert Carver, Robert Gile, Conrad Osborne, Richard Spearel, David Stainton and Arnold Warren. Using this talented material, faculty advisors Miss Genevieve Dennison of Northfield and Mr. William Morrow of Mount Hermon provided their audiences with a comedy based on the hilarious experiences of two sisters sharing an ever-eventful Greenwich Village apartment. One who deserves a great deal of credit for the success of this production is Mr. John Williams, who directed the building of the sets. Among the students who worked off stage and enabled the three-act play to go so smoothly were William Mather, Robert Degler, Bert Haskins, Wayne Parker and William Rosser. These boys were responsible for such essentials as lighting, setting, make-up and tickets. The coordination of this work in addition to that of talented acting and excellent directing pro- duced a variety of entertainment much appre- ciated by its audiences. ln the second half of their season the Hermon Players combined with Northfield's Junior dra- matics association, Tri U, to produce a form of psychological drama entitled Double Door. Pre- sented on February 29 and March l, the mystery featured Carol Blomquist, Hillery Hall, Mariorie Lamb and Arnold Warren, with Robert Halkyard and Conrad Osborne in the support- ing roles. Illness prevented Wayne Foote from carrying out his part as a supporting character. Once again the stage crew did admirably in building both the Northfield and the Hermon sets. The play was presented under the excel- lent direction of Miss Jean Cummings and Mr. William Morrow. First row-Blake, C., Warren, A., Oblesow, B., Carver, R., Walker, D., Gile, R., Foote, W.

'z l 'J K X QNX 4 4 X 5 X gg X Y U ELL done" is a familiar expression on campus. Truly, this is appropriate in congratulating the l95l football team. Although the outlook was not exceptionally bright early in the season, the members of the squad, never- theless, were determined to win and, accord- ingly, worked hard, displaying the highest degree of spirit every day. Under the expert and reliable coaching of Messrs. Rineer, Westin and Stearns the team developed into a smoothly operating machine which surpassed all others in production. Mount Hermon should indeed be proud of her undefeated football squad, whose record has been equaled by only one other team in the history of Mount Hermon football. An outstanding feature of this year's team was the strength and depth exhibited in each position. At all times every member could be counted on for an excellent performance. The offense was again this year based upon the "winged-T" formation, although other variations of this formation were also employed. The center of the powerful attack was Bill Bishop, fullback and captain. Bill, a veteran of two seasons, plunged and drove through both tackles for a total of 583 yards, an average of 6.3 yards a carry, and seven touchdowns. ' In His quickness afoot and his gliding grace con- tributed much to the color of each game. Bill Fivaz, working with Hermon plays for the first time, contributed a praiseworthy performance in quarterbacking the eleven. lt was not unusual to see opponents tackling the wrong man be- cause of the deception Bill mastered at his position. An extremely dangerous ball carrier in the secondary, Don Chatman disregarded his lack of experience early in the year and devel- oped into a highly coordinated and useful back. At the opposite half-back post Pete Philippi was responsible for the yardage compiled on sweeping reverses. While one mentions the backfield, one should award Bill Holmes much praise. After Bishop received a pre-season iniury Holmes grasped the fullback duties and proceeded to carry them out with remarkable success. It has been said a backfield can not function without a forward line. Realizing early in the season that the line was not strong, faith- fully day after day the linemen worked to improve their play. With such consistency were the opposing teams forced to relinquish the ball that Hermon controlled the offense during an estimated three-fourths of the playing time. OFfensiveIy the line consisted of Huckabee, Brown, Fitzgerald, Fiske, Eckel, Robinson and Morrissey. The defense this year was a team in itself. lts members worked together, stopping the opposing forces with complicated formations at the line of scrimmage. The defensive platoon consisted of Walker, Brown, Miller, White, Fiske and Rosser. Backing the line were Saharceski, Ashcraft, Allen and Philippi, all of whom con- tinually broke up potential running and passing plays. With such effectiveness did the defense halt the opposing offense that Hermon's oppo- nents were able to score only Al points, while our team tallied 2l3. The season opened impressively as the Rineermen posted a 25-7 victory against Cush- ing at Ashburnham. Mike Saharceski climaxed a 50-yard drive in the opening period with a score, but Cushing, not disheartened, bounced back and took the lead at 7-6. Saharceski once again found green grass and scored with only a few minutes remaining in the first half, but the extra point for the second time failed to materialize. Midway in the third period Bill Holmes plunged successfully to pay dirt, fol- lowed by Bill Fivaz's end-over-end drop kick to bolster the Hermon lead to i9-7. Bob Ashcraft accounted for the final six points by way of a quarterback sneak. "To Hermon with revenge" was Williston's motto on October i3 as she sought to retaliate for the Maroon victory of the previous year. Good fortune, however, was not to be hers, for Hermon swept to a 28-7 conquest.

T I I i tive penalty kick combined with two more tallies, 64 his team with his third score of the afternoon. Herman had its second victory in three tries. lnitiating Hermon's day of conquest against Choate athletic teams, the Herman soccer men booted Choate from the unbeaten ranks on October 27, in the only morning game of the year. During a few minutes of poor play in the first period the Hermonites were saved from sudden disaster by sensational defensive play, before the half was over, Lindfors had scored on a pass from Conly, and Payne's goal made the score 2-0. ln a rough second half, Baum tallied Hermon's last point, and Choate her one and only-thus a victorious Herman soccer team in the afternoon watched the Maroon football and cross-country teams complete the overthrow of Choate supremacy. Just two weeks later a strong undefeated Williston team brought the Hermonites back to earth with a heartbreaking 2-l double-overtime loss. At the half the score stood O-O, but in the third quarter Conly scored and in the fourth Williston evened the count on a penalty kick, sending the contest into overtime. Playing under the severest pressure, both teams failed to score quickly, but in the second overtime Williston won the game. In a rebound from defeat the Maroon took the measure of Wilbraham on November l4. Playing in disagreeable mud and foul weather, the two teams ended the third period in a l-l deadlock. Payne had scared for Herman. Early in the final stanza, however, Wilbraham pulled out in front 2-l. Thus it remained until, with but three minutes to play, Boris Oblesow sent the tying point soaring into the net. Shortly after Payne scored his second goal of the afternoon, and ten seconds later Lindfors secured Hermon's victory with the final goal of the game, this making the score 4-2. The Herman soccer squad had played some remarkable games during its season, but on November 20, a stunning 2-l win over Deerfield overshadowed any previous performance and climaxed the season. lt was only fitting that Captain Conly should scare both goals, one in the second quarter on a pass from Wicks and the other, a head shot, in the fourth period on a pass from Lindfors. This Maroon victory, the first one at Deerfield in the history of Herman soccer, supplemented similar football and cross- country triumphs to make an almost perfect record in fall athletics. ln concluding one should remember that the soccer success was due almost entirely to spirit and teamwork, not only of the scorers, Captain Conly, Baum, Lindfors, Oblesow, A. Parker and Payne, but also and equally of the defensive and supporting players: Broad, Burgess, Bus- hong, Cook, Golder, Lee, W. Parker, Spangen- berg and Wicks. The fighting spirit of these boys carried the team to a season of success.

It had been victorious in all six of its regularly scheduled dual meets. The season opened on the home course Octo- ber 6, with a perfect 115-A01 win over the Springfield College Freshmen. The first five places were clinched by Dixon, Cannon, Gon- zalez, Thompson and Walker. The following Wednesday the harriers traveled to Nichols Junior College where again they won by a per- fect score with Dixon, Cannon, Thompson, Walker and Gonzalez taking the first five places in that order. The home meet on October 24, with Deerfield, added the third link in the grow- ing chain of victories. Hermon's Dixon, Cannon, CROSS COUNTRY Thompson and Walker finished ahead of Deer- field's first man for a 17-38 triumph. Three days later the visiting Choate team proved no match for the now experienced Hermon runners. Again Dixon, Cannon, Thompson and Walker ac- counted for the first four places and a score of 16-39. On November 3 Mount Hermon was host to teams from eight different schools competing in the lnterscholastics. Owing to extremely un- favorable weather conditions the meet was run over an improvised course covering 2.5 miles of macadam road. Again standing out far above her opponents, Hermon took first place as Cap- tain Thompson, Dixon and Cannon led the field in that order. The harriers won a decisive vic- tory on November 8, against the William Col- lege Frosh by a perfect score l15-1101. Dixon, Cannon, Thompson, Newton and Wragg took the first five places. On November 15, the final challenge to a thus-far-undefeated season was successfully repelled as the Maroon defeated Stockbridge 20-41, Dixon winning first place. Late November found the cross-country men in prime condition as Captain Thompson, Dodd, Wragg and Bill Lange won the first three places in the annual 4.5 mile Bemis Pie Race. Loaded with talent and burst with spirit, the 1951 cross-country team just never said "die," A glorious undefeated season resulted. - fl' "'?

Bauer, Jewell, and Whyte, finished the season unsuccessfully. The team's record stands at no wins and seven losses. On January l9, the swimmers lost their initial meet to Worcester Academy, 45-30. Outstand- ing for the visiting Hermonites were Earley, who won the 200 yard freestyle, and Epler, who won the l00 yard backstroke. The Mermen were de- feated again iust a week later in the Northfield pool by the Springfield College Freshmen, 42-24. The freestyle relay combination of Maclvor, Gil- lespie, Murray, and Wright proved the only Hermon entry with enough strength to capture a first place. SWIMMING A strong Williston squad drowned the Maroon, 42-24, at Northfield on February 6. Captain Wright turned in a creditable performance by taking second place in both the 40 and lOO yard freestyle races. At Amherst on February 9, Hermon suffered a loss to the Freshmen, 44-30. Regardless of defeat, however, the Maroon showed signs of great improvement by taking first place in the medley and freestyle relays, and in the difficult diving competition. A second defeat at the hands of Williston was endured on Saturday, February l6. Captain Wright won first place honors in the individual medley, but the Hermonites, nevertheless, lost to their hosts by a wide margin, 50-25. The team next traveled to Hartford where on Feb- ruary 20, it competed against the Trinity Fresh- men. Hope of victory was high after the Maroon won the freestyle and medley relays, but Trinity emerged victorious, 39-36. Deerfield thoroughly trounced the Hermon plungers on February 27, by a score of 50-25. Four days later the season came to a close when the varsity swimming team attended the Trinity lnterscholastics and placed eighth among the New England Preparatory Schools.

' X.. HROUGH achieving the most brilliant record in recent years, the basketball team is worthy of boundless praise. Captained by Ernie Allen, the squad took advantage of its superior height in defeating twelve of its sixteen opponents, many by exceptionally wide margins. This unit of well-balanced, well-coached players, under the experienced tutelage of Mr. Burdick, proved ceaseless fight and endless spirit to be the two- fold key to success. Recognition of the team's success came at the end of the season in the form of an invitation to play in the New England Preparatory School Tournament. ln the quarter-finals held at Deer- field Academy on March l2, Hermon faced a BASKETBALL small, yet highy talented Monson quintet. After a close opening period in which Hermon took a T2-8 lead, Monson outclassed the Hermonites by passing well, recovering numerous loose balls, and hitting for a highly accurate shooting per- centage. The result was that Monson sped to a 33-l8 half-time lead, maintained it to win the game, and thus eliminated Mount Hermon from the tournament. The regular season opened on January l6, at Cushing, as the home club set back the Ma- roon, 58-54. Behind by sixteen points at the beginning of the fourth quarter, Hermon rallied to tie the game, only to lose in the final seconds. However, three days later at Meriden, New Hampshire, the team earned its initial victory as it swamped Kimball Union Academy, 76-39. Allen led the victors with nineteen points. Forced to cancel a game at Choate owing to illness in both schools, the squad made its home debut January 26 by trouncing Vermont Acad- emy, 73-5l. After sweeping to a 26-6 first-period lead, Hermon widened the margin and coasted to an easy triumph. McDaniel scored nineteen markers. On the next outing, just four days later, the Maroon five held an inexperienced Wilbra- ham team at their mercy, routing the visitors, 64-38. First row-Bennett, D., McDaniel, R., Allen, E. lCaptainl, Fivaz, W., Conly, D., Morrissey, J. Second row-Thomsen, W. lMgr.l, lvers, D., Moffett, D., Mr. Burdick lCoachl, Hartman, D., Payne, A., Varnum, F. lMgr.l. On February 2, the Hermonites unquestion- ably played their outstanding game as they routed a strong Deerfield five, 53-24, at Deer- field. They dominated both boards and produced an unbeatable shooting percentage. Scoring honors went to Fivaz with eighteen. In the traditional February 5, Founder's Day, contest with Kimball Union, the hoopsters found little trouble in trampling the upstaters, 6l-25. At Williston, however, on the following day, the quintet suffered its second defeat in a breath- taking thriller. The Hermonites trailed through- out the game, but moved to within three points of a tie wtih a minute to play. A last second Hermon basket proved the end of a valiant but unrewarding attempt since Williston emerged the winner, 65-64. To forge the way back to the winning road, Bill Fivaz sparked the varsity five with twenty- three points to a 72-44 triumph on February 9 at Wilbraham. ln the following game on the road, the Amherst Yearlings handed the Maroon forces their third defeat. The game was an even one for three periods, however, the freshmen scored freely in the fourth frame to win, 58-48. Three days later, Hermon again hit the winning column with a 60-30 triumph over Vermont Academy. McDaniel clicked for twenty-six points on the Saxon River court. Mindful of their opening defeat, the Hermon- ites had sweet revenge on February 20, in con- quering Cushing, 48-36, in a return encounter on the Hermon floor. After establishing an early lead, the Maroon was threatened in the third period, but effectively settled down in the last eight minutes to win. Allen, Fivaz, and Mc- Daniel scored, respectively, ten, eleven, and thirteen points. Still out to revenge earlier defeats, the Bur- dickmen, on February 24, ran over Williston to the tune of 55-37. The first half was closely played, and Hermon maintained only a slim twenty-two-to-twenty lead at intermission. ln the second stanza, however, a determined ball club took the home floor and proceeded to break the game wide open. Ernie Allen captured the scor- ing laurels with eighteen points. The next two outings proved easy victories for the Hermonites. After blasting Stockbridge, 66-39, at Hermon on February 27, the quintet took the measure of Loomis, 7l-58, three days later at Windsor, Connecticut. Captain Allen again sparked the club and climaxed his all- round play with twenty-three points. The regular season closed at home on March 3, when the Maroon laced Deerfield Academy, 66-4l. Although it was a nip-and-tuck battle for the first eight minutes, the superior Mount Her- mon height tired the Green and opened the way for seemingly endless fast breaks-a spec- tacular end to a highly successful season. -es -sexi YW, H5 2.-.u Furst row Patruck P Bushong C Baum B lCaptaunl Carver R Bushop C Myers R Second ro Farrar K Mr Wyman lCoachl Lanphear D Burke R Moore P Smnth M lMgrl Roland R ' 1. , V, M .

JUNIOR LEAGUE FOOTBALL N undefeated and untied season was once again the accomplishement of the Junior League football team. Hampered by rainy days all fall, the group was able to play only three games. The season opened with a 34-7 victory over a Vermont eleven on October 24. One week later, in a hard-fought, closely contested game with Turners Falls played off campus, Her- man emerged a 7-O victor, the result of Snyder's scoring on a plunge and Porter's converting. The climax to a perfect season came on No- vember l4, at Deerfield, as the visiting Hermon- ites trimmed the Green, T8-6. The coach, Mr. Baldwin, once again excelled in teaching his boys the fundamentals of football. Led by Captain Gerry Huckabee, the team at all times disclosed splendid spirit and a willing- ness to learn. SOCCER LTHOUGH the J. L. soccer team of l95l, led by Captain George Hamilton, may not have been a success in view of its record, it was iust that in effect. This past fall, as in many a pre- ceding one, Mr. Mirtz prepared many boys for future higher-squad soccer. Those who had never played before were taught the fundamentals. Those who had previously played gained valu- able experience. ln the first game, Deerfield administered a 4-l defeat to the Hermonites, whose lone goal was scored by Welburn. Just two weeks later the J. L. team was vanquished, 8-O, by a more experienced Putney squad. ln the final game Gray scored one goal, but the Ma- roon was again defeated, 3-l, by Deerfield. SPORTS BASKETBALL HE Junior League basketball team, ably coached by Mr. Mirtz, ended its season with a satisfactory record of four victories and three losses. The Turners Falls Freshmen fell to the tune of 47-22 at Hermon on January l6. A 34-27 setback at Deerfield ten days later evened the ledger. Deerfield visited Hermon on February 2, and returned the victor by virtue of a 39-32 win. The Maroon began its winning ways on the home court as it swept through Wilmington, 57-26, and through the Athol YMCA, 69-30. A visiting Northfield High School team dimmed Hermon's hopes for a winning season by down- ing the local hoopsters, 38-33, on February l3. However, two weeks later success was realized at Turners Falls when the Mirtzmen triumphed, 53-39, in their final game. WRESTLING NE of the most satisfying examples of devel- opment of the youth athlete is evident here at Hermon in the form of the Junior League wres- tling team. So well does varsity wrestling coach, Mr. Campbell, realize the need for training young boys to wrestle if he is to build a strong varsity team, that he has found time to work with this group, teaching the fundamentals and cultivating an interest in the sport. The novices on this team are the varsity wres- tlers of tomorrow. Through excellent coaching and with much intramural practice they have learned their lessons well.
