To the one who has surrounded us with peace,
beauty, and security, and has made these days the
happiest in our lives, we feel the deepest love. To the
one who has so generously and graciously opened to
us the gates of knowledge, and guided us with
patience along its paths, We give the profoundest
gratitude and appreciation. To you, Mountain Lakes,
We dedicate this book.

SENIOR CLHSS OF 1941
OUR SENIOR YEHR
Hs seniors we first entered the central, sacred doorway to the little brick school-
house With mingled feelings of pride and meekness, joy and a deep sense of respon-
sibility, and high hopes for the future mixed with misgivings as to our being able
to carry out our childish dreams as to the fine and noble things we should do as a
senior class. We delighted in the fact that we were the oldest and highest class
in the school. To us fell the important task of giving to the underclassmen, by word,
deed, and action, a goal toward which they might strive, and an example they
would be proud to follow. We remembered vividly how we had looked up to and
admired some ofthe previous senior classes and we desperately wished that we
might live up to their high standards and, if possible, surpass them. We had real-
ized for some years that our biggest project was to be the class yearbook. It was
toward this that we strived when underclassmen, and in an endeavor to make our
senior year as easy as possible, we amassed a treasury of over 35150. We kept con-
tinually betore us, however, the fact that we had a record and ideals to uphold
which required that in our money-raising activities we should have something
which would benefit the school and be worthy of the school's whole-hearted support.
Hs the senior year closes we again have diversified and mingled emotions. It is
with a sad and contrite heart that we leave our teachers and instructors, our deep-
rooted friendships and faithful companions, and our pleasant memories oi high
school experiences. We shall earnestly try to hold and retain all these things
which have meant so much to us. tWe go forth in our various ways from a firm
foundation and aspire for greater achievementsl

Magnificently tall and beautiful is the way
we would describe this lovely creature.
Iune is extremely versatile.
Her sweet soprano voice is a welcome
asset to our choir,
Her talent in art has resulted in many
pretty illustrations and her vim and enthu-
siasm have given her the role of captain
in the cheering squad. Iune is noted for
her good looking suits and she is always
dressed to perfection.
Her ability in sewing is unsurpassed and
her speed and efficiency in this line is re-

the class and her wit and hilarity have
won her a million friends. Iune has been

If she is tiny with brown eyes, wavy chest-
nut hair, and a cheery smile, it is surely
Betty. Her pleasing voice and knowledge
of music have carried her successfully
through six years in H Cappella Choir and
two in Hll State Choir, She also plays the
drums and patters about on the piano. I-ls
a cheerleader, modern dancer, and seam-
stress she is equally talented.
Betty's friendliness is a characteristic
which should be admired. She seems to
go out of her way to make friends.
Becoming an air hostess seems to be num-
ber one on Betty's list of interesting
careers. Her characteristics are well suited
for such a profession, but she changes her
mind so often it is impossible to even guess
what she will finally become. Good luck,

Blonde hair is something rather scarce
in our class, but golden locks plus big blue
eyes are something even rarer, especially
those belonging to Bea. This stunning girl
amazes everyone by her variety of talents
in school activities. Ht ease with a paint
brush her art Work is admirable. Bea's
athletic abilities are unnumbered and she
is an outstanding member of the cheer-
leading squad. Her gay humor and con-
stant cheeriness are contagious to every-
one about her. The class is now ac-
customed to screams of laughter which
announce that Beazie finally appreciates
a joke that was told many days ago. Bea
is interested in art Work, and since she
makes a subject herself, we are sure her
highest aims will be attained.

Upon entering school last year, "Fifi"
seemed to glare viciously at everyone. We
soon discovered this a mistake, however,
for upon uncovering her disguise We dis-
covered a warm and friendly personality
together with Wicked eyes and magnetic
charm. "Fifi" introduced some wonderful
new ideas and became at once a staunch
supporter of every activity and sport. Her
laugh is contagious and her love for fun,
extreme. The vivacious personality which
she possesses has won her great popu-
larity and a host of friends. She is nothing
short of a miracle Woman and there is no
stopping her either in hilarity or good
marks. "Fifi's" low voice, lovely complex-
ion, and brunette suaveness are welcome
sights at anytime, in any company. She
will probably still be bubbling with youth
when the rest of us are old and gray.

"Bus" with his amazing sense of humor
and crazy antics is a familiar sight loung-
ing about the halls in school. His thunder-
ous sneezes are the plague of many a
teacher. "Bus" is really quite a versatile
fellow. Besides being an authority on
aeronautics, he plays the piano, piccolo,
and trumpet for his own amusement. "Bus"
was a smashing success in football last
fall, covering himself with well deserved
glory. ln the winter he turned Iunior
G-man and patrolled the ice-skating on
Wildwood Lake. f'Bus" proved his excel-
lent actors talent in the role of the villain
in our senior play. l-lis good looks, deep
voice and scholastic aptitude are all re-
sponsible for his being a favorite with
teachers and students alike.

Bob is one of those rare individuals who
can win friends and still influence people
in a remarkable fashion. By some in-
genious trick of nature Bob is not only
blessed with boundless good spirits but,
behold! a fine rnindl We never know when
or how he accomplishes so much, for he
has not only held the presidency of our
class for the last two years, but this year
was elected head of our local chapter of
the National Honor Society, and then bobs
up unfailingly at the head of the class.
Hlong with his scholastic ability, Bob has
been playing varsity position on both the
Track and Basketball Teams for the past
two years. Rnd when he is not fighting
for his Fllma Mater, you can find him
among the members of our school band.
Bob's versatility will always assure him
of an audience and successful future.
Good luck, Bob. Your class respects and
thanks you heartily for your unforgetable

Pinky is that tall redheaded fellow you
saw playing end on our varsity football
team. Together with his lankiness, lazi-
ness, and dapper haircomb, which We be-
lieve he accomplishes with the aid of an
egg beater, he cuts quite a figure. Hmong
his many odd characteristics are his amaz-
ina sense of humor which gives forth many
old jokes, his "come hither" whistle, and
his inability to get out of bed in the morn-
ing in time for the eight-thirty bell. Pinky
is enrolled in school but it may be noticed
that he has no deformalities from carrying
books home. Hll in all Pinky is Well liked
by one and all, even his little brother
"Red" whose dessert he claims now and
Whatever Pinky chooses to do later in
life we are sure that he'll make out all
right with a little aid from Providence.
Tim's five feet five frame is hardly ample
for the personality, good humor and driv-
ing energy it contains. He has excelled
in three extra curricular interests, While he
has been in high school. He may best be
remembered as our 1940 Basketball man-
ager and as the general manager of all
sports in 1941. He has acted more or less
as the Coach's right-hand-man for the past
His second interest is music. He is a self-
taught trumpet player and has played
first trumpet regularly this year for the
high school band and orchestra.
His third interest has been punriing and
mangling the King's English which he
does with reckless abandon at all times.
His broad grin and ebullient personality
are bound to carry him far.

Natural beauty and poise are "Dotty's"
most outstanding characteristics. Her
greatest delight is walking to school in the
teeming rain and at such times her natur-
ally curly hair becomes a mass of beauty.
"Dotty" is a great walker and she also
loves ice-skating, swimming, skiing and
dancing. She is very partial to the out-
doors and puts her whole heart into any-
thing connected with it. "Dot" is reserved
and conscientious in her school work or
whatever she undertakes and her pleasant
disposition makes her a great favorite
with all. We really envy the lucky man
who hires "Dotty" as his private secretary.
We might hint that besides all that has
been said she is domestically inclined.
Draw your own conclusions about this
lovely girl while we wish her a happy

We dream of "Ianey" with the dark brown
hairl laney is one peach of a girl, easy to
know, understanding, and a lot of fun in
any atmosphere. She loves teas, showers,
dances and characters, and is a master at
poise and sincere personality. "laney"
wants her immediate future to be behind
a perfume counter handling the delicate
bottles with equally delicate hands. Know-
ing her power of persuasion, no one would
leave that department without a S50 bottle
of Suivez-Moi. "laney" is very often kid-
ded about her athletic prowess. She is
definitely the gym class cut-up and
couldn't tell a "birdie" from a basketball.
"Ianey," you're a panic in pink-be sure
you never turn blue. You'll be a success
because you make your own opening.

netic personality. Fllthough a spark of dis-
appointment strikes now and then, it soon
disappears tor Pat can stay mad tor just
about two minutes. Then her smile comes

"Cute Bacon" has won many, many friends
because of her pleasing disposition. Her
attitude towards life is so sunny, that none
of us could be gloomy when she is pres-
ent. Her laugh is natural, and, when smil-
ing, her brown eyes look like two shining

There is no doubt that Marianne is ol Nor-
wegian origin! Besides her obvious name,
she has fair skin and a shining head of
hair, The latter is a distinction, for it is of
an unusual shade and resembles spun
gold. Marianne is domestically inclined
and appears to be right at home behind
a stove. Yes, boys, she is a wonderful
cook. She is very quiet most of the time,
but her eyes laugh a good deal. Her long
lingers fairly ily over the typewriter and
she is well known for accomplishments in
this line. She delights in skimming along
the ice on her wonderful new skates and

"Elly" is a combination of Fats Waller and
Bing Crosby with a dash of Einstein
thrown in. His piano playing is "super"
and he usually draws a large crowd of
admirers when he begins a tune. He is a
good student, but seems to enjoy mathe-
matics above all else. His height and good
looks make him very attractive and his
voice is a fine addition to the bass section
of choir. "Elly" is blessed with a sense of
humor which is displayed to its fullest ex-
tent in his amusing oral topics. He always
succeeds somehow in accomplishing the
maximum amount of work. This amazing
feat along with his many good qualities
should help him to go far in the engineer-
ing line. We know it will be before the
engine and not behind.

Not quite Esquire, but just two points star-

day and give a favorable recitation in

call him that too, can surely whip up funds
for our treasury. Dud might have slept all
during a year book meeting, but later you
could find him button-holing some busi-
ness man for a year book advertisement.

wich College uniform, his badges and pins

Pllthough unknown to him, many girls in
the school hold a secret and fervent ad-
miration for our newly acquired Denville
representative. I-lnd who could blame
theml Gene was a hero on the gridiron
and an ace on the basketball floor. His
football playing was very tricky, and we
have no doubt, caused much consterna-
tion among the opponents. He has a
hearty laugh and a pleasant word for ev-
eryone. Gene dresses nicely and many
have been the times that his gay colored
socks, the only weakness of his which we
can discover, have flashed a little lite into
an ordinarily dull classroom. He manages
to expose them in amazingly conspicuous
places. Some day soon other students
will be profiting from the experience and
ability of their physical education instruc-
tor, for that teacher will be Gene.

Pi very tiny and dainty figure, an unceas-

of class spirit and cooperation and a ma-
nia for the hardest job in every activity
are the ingredients which compose a "pie

ways on the go, Pat undertakes and ac-
complishes all manner of important duties,
while her classmates look on, awed but
unhelpful. She is a born leader and the
yearbook would still be a dream without
her. Her charm is magnetic and her per-
sonality unequaled. Pat is a conscientious
service-clubber and is often seen drawn
to her full height and bearing a stern look,
meant to demand respect, and which
amazingly enough, does. May the light to

Wini, when she fortifies herself behind
those symbols of knowledge known cur-

Mountain Lakes f-ligh student. Once she
lets her hair down, however, we gaze up-

blue eyes. "Wini" is terribly crafty with
the pen and produces oodles of witty
compositions in both prose and poetry.
She is famous for a very amazing accom-
plishment, that of walking into classes late
and winning the teachers forgivenes with
a humble yet naughty smile. She is very
congenial and as talkative as any six cats
sitting on a white-washed fence in the

Muriel is one of those amazing people pos-

them from the rest of us. Hs editor of the
"Echoes", our very popular school paper,
she displayed qualities of leadership and
initiative. She gave generously of her
time to make this enterprise a success.
Then, too, she is one of the youngest in the
class-a tact which can only prove further
her initiative spirit and which also points
to excellence in marks and studies.
In music classes she has been compli-
mented many times tor the lovely quality
ot her voice. She is an enthusiastic sup-
porter of our F1 Cappella Choir and really
puts her heart into a song.

short while, "Kenny" has already become
famous. His first appearance caused quite
a stir, for manpower in the senior class is
sadly lacking. Besides, the new arrival
had blonde curls and a ready smile. "Ken-

constant source of embarrassment to

Fl sense of humor combined with an easy-
going manner will be responsible for
Qnnes success. Her athletic ability is well
known throughout the school and she
shines in basketball especially. Her chief
ambition is to be a gym teacher and due
to the great amount of talent that she has
exhibited so far, we are all sure that she
will be one of the finest. Ftnne is also a
'lwhiz" at math. She spends much time
trying to invent a baffling new formula.
She is cooperative, cheery and one of our
most conscientious pupils.
It is Hnne, the gym teacher, however, for
whom we predict the most success.

"Hel" is one of those wonderful persons
who is never lacking, except when ex-
haust-pipes, bumpers, and fenders are
concerned. One glance at this debby- look-
ing gal, with a cute joke in her brown
eyes, and behold!-God's gift to a mil-
lionaire. "Hel" possesses a subtle person-
ality that is the envy of the girls and
simply slays the boys, but behind all this
smooth allure is a simple dignity which
holds the respect of all who know her. She
is one of the most responsible and willing
among us and should be praised for her
commendable work toward the success of
our Senior Play. Hlthough she manages
to get more paint on herself than on her
subject, "Hel" is very talented in the tield

There is only one "Iohnnie" in our class.
"lohnnie" canwell be compared to a green
light. She is full of zip and zoom, with
sparkling blue eyes "thrown in". She has
the wonderful knack of accomplishing her
every venture and doing a remarkable
job of it. She is a vivacious "gal" and the
backbone of the cheer-leaders. Her ability
with the brush and pallet is commendable.
Time means nothing to "Iohnnie", "a la

new date dress. Mary is as effervescent as
they come, she is a bubble forever burst-
ing into joyous laughter. She is crazy and

reveal beautiful, pearly teeth. Your smile

This lovely girl could not be nearer per-
fection! Her friendship is especially cher-
ished by those coming in contact with her
sincerity and faithfulness. "Marsh" has
auburn hair, which curls delightfully, her
eyes possess a twinkle, and her smile is
saucy. She is very talented and can al-
ways be found in the art room just
"messin' around". H masterpiece is the
usual result, for she has excellent talent
in this line. It would be impossible to
make her admit it, and in this modesty lies
the secret of Marcia's charm, when praise
hits her it bounces right off and never

"Plllie" is our own example of a petite
French doll with the proverbial long chest-
nut-colored hair and devilish bangs. Ql-
though she is quite small, she knows what
she wants and usually succeeds in getting
it. On or off the dance floor, she is full of
pep, and, no matter where she goes, she
has a twinkle in her brown eyes. Strangely
enough, "Plllie" delights in odd things,
and, for although we have said "thumbs
down" on her high socks, she still insists
on wearing them.
"I-lllie" is quite talented in the musical
field, being in the band, orchestra, and
choir. lf physics doesnt get her down, she
would like to enter the bacteriology field.
Well, here's the best of luck to you, "Hllie",
and we all hope that the "big bad wolf"
never makes you fall.
Pllthough many people think that "Connie"
is too quiet, she is one of the nicest girls
we know. She is one of Mr. Doublier's best
French students, and her chief ambition is
to become a language teacher. "Connie's"
long periods in the hospital have in no
way influenced her work, for she has the
ambition to keep on no matter what hap-
Ht home she enjoys cooking and sewing
and may often be seen Whipping up some
delightful new dish for her family's ap-
proval. "Connie" has rather a dreamy
nature which often marks "The Thinker".
We see much in "Connie's" character
which will help make her a success in her
chosen field, for she has the patient, plod-
ding nature which is so necessary today.

It is "Tina" who supplies the senior class
with its musical talent. However, it seems
that few realized this fact until we heard
her voice pour forth into the auditorium
the night of the senior vaudeville. lts de-
lightful charm and freshness holds excel-
lent promise for her future success in this
line. Ht first meeting she appears to be a
quiet, retiring sort of person, but under-
neath this outward appearance there lies
a spark of deviltry which can never be
entirely concealed. She has been a wholly
reliable member of the class ever since
she arrived in fourth grade. Her chief
ability in schoolwork lies in languages
and history, but she is an all-round good
student in practically anything she under-
takes. Whatever it is that makes success
we know she has it.

"Hud" is our idea of a truly super girl. Her
quality of sincerity is envied and admired
by all. She possesses an appealing charm
and a tall, willowly beauty. Her hair re-
sembles that of a novelist's heroine for it
is as soft and gleaming as silk. We couldn't
go without mentioning her eyes, either, for
they are large and friendly, bordered by
long feathery lashes and very exceptional
orbs. She is the spirit of cooperation itself
from the top of her curly hair to the tip of
her toes, which do have a habit of turning
in. "Plud" holds malice towards none
which is one reason for her absolute popu-
larity. She is undecided about her future,
but it's a "cinch" that she will be a suc-
cess in whatever she undertakes.
P1 new member of our class, Irene is
liked for her quiet southern manners
her friendly smile. lt's restful just to be
her, for her voice is soft and soothing,
her actions smoothly silent. She is
imbued with an unaffected manner,
this naturalness is very becoming. F1
wonderful sense of humor is her greatest
Her admitted weaknesses are tall blonds,
fried chicken and week ends. Perhaps the
three of these delights will unite some day.
Reeny has been pretty homesick for Mary-

stay up north. Reeny is perfectly suited for
her chosen profession, nursing.

"Barb" is known for her vivacious nature
and her petite charm. She is very fond of
sports, particularly skiing and figure skat-
ing. The latter appears high on her list of
accomplishments. Dancing and swimming
run close seconds in popularity.
Her main ambition is to become a profes-
sional skater or connected in some way
with dramatics. The ability which she
possesses in this line, and her eager de-
termination for success should certainly
take her far towards reaching this goal.
She has also taken an active interest in

"Dicky" is one of the few who can boast
of having been raised and educated from
infancy in Mountain Lakes. His intellectual
ability, coupled with his unfailing sense
of humor and delight in punning, makes
him always an enjoyable companion. In
the realm of music he has no peer. He has
sung in Q Cappella choir since its organ-
ization, has bellowed with the glee club,
and has sung several times with the state
choir in Htlantic City. His faculty of man-
ipulating the drum sticks has constituted
a valuable contribution to the band and
orchestra for years. 151 child of the seasons,
he is an enthusiastic skiier and a veteran
sailor. He aspires for a future in chemistry,
so we give formal notice to all atomic

rection when we were undoubtedly pulling in the Wrong one,
for graciously offering his much needed help in all of our class

We know that we have given Scho many uneasy mo-

in the future, we hope that he will regain his previous un-
harassed outlook on life. To him We extend our deepest ap-
preciation and the best of luck.

Ever since the class of l942 entered seventh grade it has been character-
ized by the enthusiasm with which its students have stepped into the spirit ot
Mt. Lakes High. Now as ambitious Iuniors they are anticipating their Senior
year, not untinged with regret that it will be their last here.
Students ot the class have been outstanding in extra-curricular activities
as well as in their school Work. H11 the clubs and sports claim members from
this class as their leaders or ardent supporters: this is especially noticeable in
the Fl Cappella Choir.
The Iuniors have accomplished much this year under the Wise guidance
of Mr. Trimble and the class officers. By sponsoring numerous functions, such
as "Weber, the Wizard", a magician, and a movie, "The Buccaneer", they
have a well-filled treasury which is essential tor the coming year.
Here's to you, Class of '42, tor luck in your coming year as seniors in
Mountain Lakes High School.
During the year just passed the Sophomore class has really become a
part of the high school. Orderly class meetings and quick, intelligent thinking
followed the olderdregime of noise and inefficiency. Soon the results were ap-
parent to all. i'
Not being satisfied with just following the usual activities, the class
wracked its brains for something different. Finally, the idea of a faculty-
student basketball game was suggested. This idea was a financial success as
well as a most entertaining spectacle.
The Sophomore Hop, true to tradition, was one of the most delightful ex-
periences of the year. This dance had been the objective of the class through
all the preceding months, but even the highest expectations were thoroughly
In all school activities the Sophomores play an important part. Football,
basketball, and track and also clubs and other organizations are supported to
a great extent by Sophomores.
lf this class continues with the good work it has lately been accomplish-
ing, it can go far in the years ahead.

The class of 1945 is an extremely up and coming class that is expected to
go tar in the high school.
During every marking period this year the eighth grade has led all the
other classes in the number ot students on the Honor Roll. They are proud
of this record and hope to keep it up.
They have only a small amount in their treasury since they had made a
very generous donation to the Red Cross.
They are noted tor their fine basketball team which has badly beaten
their rivals the ninth grade, many times. They seem to be very promising for
the Varsity teams of the future.
ln the S. G. Q., they are ably represented by lack Stringer and Mary
Evans and are expertly advised by Miss Blanchard and Mr. Wikander.
Their members take part in many of the school activities such as the band,
orchestra and the Fl Cappella Choir. Mr. Milkey says their class would make
a very tine choir in themselves.

opponents to the lowest score of their five year series. While defeated by a 14-6
count, they gave their Essex County rivals many anxious moments during the
The following week, the team travelled to Washington and although losing
19-7, they showed quite an improvement over the previous 32-O defeat of 1939.
ln the third week, the boys scored their first victory in the best played game
of the season. Trailing 6-7 late in the last quarter, the locals came through with
a safety and a last minute touchdown to defeat Wharton 15-7.
The Lakers journeyed to Flemington next week where they gained a moral vic-
tory by tying their more experienced rivals 19-19. ln fact the orange and blue led
until the closing minutes when Flemington scored twice on long passes.
The fifth game saw a plucky St. Bernards eleven hold Mt. Lakes to a 6-6 tie.
The next game was to be with Netcong, however, Netcong gave up the sport
and a return game with Wharton was scheduled. This encounter was taken by
the visitor by 15-U.
The blue and orange played their last game of the season at Roxbury and
then county rivals with a score of 6-U. Long runs by lack Greene featured the lo-
cals' victory in the season's finals.
The team had the heaviest line in Mountain Lakes history. The backfield fea-
turing Shultz, Hastings, Holstein and Deitz, was fast and charging. Under Coach

THE BHSKETBHLL TEHM
The basketball team had an unfortunate year with only three victories. The
first game of the season saw the Varsity trim the highly-favored Hlumni team, but
it turned out to be a costly victory since one of the Varsity regulars, Bob Beck,
received a head injury that kept him on the sidelines for the remainder of the sea-
ln the early part of the season Mountain Lakes overcame the highly-favored
Roxbury quintet by a close margin, l8 to l5,
Later in the season, this same Roxbury team defeated an excellent Dover High
School team. To prove that the first game was not sheer luck, Mountain Lakes
turned back the Roxbury netsters a second time near the end of the season.
Qnother highspot of the season occurred when Caldwell travelled to Mountain
Lakes. In the preliminary game with the Caldwell IayVee's, the score was dead-
locked with a minute to play. Then Caldwell made a basket on a long shot from
mid-court. The lead stayed in their hands with Mountain Lakes trying desperately
to knot the score. When the final Whistle blew, one of the most even and exciting
games of the season had been played.
The prospects for next year seem exceedingly bright. The squad will not suf-
fer any losses through graduation and the lunior Varsity has shown great ability
this year by Winning 7 games.
We'll have to say this just Wasn't our year. Next year We hope the squad
shapes up as well as it ought to.

The purpose of the S. G. Fi. is to transact student
affairs and to stimulate interest in class activities, To
clarify the actions and duties of the body, an assembly
program was presented. The entire council held a
business ,meeting on the stage for the benefit of the
school. Many questions were answered at this time for
the students and they realized again what a truly fine
organization the S. G. Fl. is.
The Service Club, this year, really lived up to its
name, for through the work of Mr. Schofield and the
aid of the S. G. H., a complete reorganization was ac-
complished. New rules were established and offenders
of the latter were forced to appear before a court, This
tribunal, held every Friday afternoon as required, con-
sisted of three teachers, three students, and a student-
judge and Scho as a prosecutor.
This plan worked very well and the result was a
more cooperative student body and a more efficient
President: Quin P. Turkington.

Hlthough the band played at only a few of the
home gamers this fall it made a striking appearance on
the football field. This year the band was led by two
remarkable little majorettes who twirl their batons
with exceptional dexterity. Besides performing at the
football games it provides music for other purposes
:such as the Memorial Day services, Our high school
ia: proud of this musical organization, which is under
the direction of Mr. H T. Milkey.
The High School Orchestra, under the baton of Mr,
Milkey, is composed of faithful musicians who attend
rehearsals once a week, The talent is limited and
varied because this group is small, Hs the orchestra
has been rehearsing a great deal especially for the
Seniors' graduation, the class of '4l extends to them
their most sincere appreciation.

A CAPPELLA CHOIR

successful year under the able direction of Mr. Edward

only five years, it has already established a reputa-

Two concerts are given each year in which titty-two
well-blended voices participate. One of these concerts
was given at Christmas time. The music sung by this

alike, into a Christmas spirit. The second concert was
given in May, the spring atmosphere added to the

THE LINE HND COLOR
The Line and Color Club, although formed
only two years ago, has become increas-

presented an assembly program of living pic-
tures and a iilm about great paintings. The
object of the club has been to stimulate inter-
est in creative art, and it has certainly suc-
ceeded in attaining this aim.

THE STAGE CRHFT
The Stage Craft Club is one of the real
reasons for the success of our school plays
and fashion shows. This Club has clearly
shown what it is possible to do in the way
of stage settings, costume, properties, and
make-up. The group has been under the di-
rection ot Miss Callaway and Mr. Wikander,
who have given very generously their time
to advise and instruct the club. The Stage
Craft Club has made a great name for itself
and has even greater future in store.
THE CHMERH CLUB
The darkroom of the Camera Club has
been the scene ot considerable activity
during the past year. Under the guidance ol
Mr. Trimble and Qnne Ingram, the members
have shown an increasing interest in photo-
graphy. During the year the club bought a
new enlarger which has added interest and
activity of the members.
Many of the more artistic, printed their
own personal photographic Christmas cards,
in a most professional way.
We know the enthusiasm of the Camera
Club members will continue to grow in the
years to come.
THE DRHMHTIC CLUB
The Dramatic Club was organized early
in October with a record number joining.
During the year two short, but entertaining
comedies were presented by the members of
the group, namely: "The Lost Silk Hat" under
the supervision of Miss Hrmstrong's ever-
watchful eyes and "Not Quite Such a Goose"
ably directed by Patricia McGreevy.
The purpose of the organization is to give
to the pupils of our school an opportunity to
try their skill in all phases of dramatics and
with this thought in mind it will continue
through the years.

The Mountain Lakes Gamma Hi-Y is a
member of both the National and County
Y.M.C.Ft. Their purpose is to create and main-
tain high standards throughout the school
This year, by being exceedingly active in
this section, they were ranked the highest club
in Morris County.
The club has contributed its services to
the school and community affairs by offering
aid to the British Relief Ptctivities, the Sports
Field project, and undertakings within the
school. Its members are noticeably active in
the extra school activities under faculty sup-
Their weekly meetings which are held at
the school, have had as their guests most of
the outstanding residents of Mountain Lakes.
The members find this a splendid method to
better their knowledge of the Community.
National Honor Society
The National Honor Society reached its
greatest membership this year with five sen-
iors and three juniors. It has broken another
record because, for the first time since its
organization, there are more girls than boys.
The Mountain Lakes Chapter is but one of
the thousands in the nation-wide organization
which stimulates exemplary living on the part
of the high school students of this nation.
The society recognizes four principal char-
acteristics which are fundamental to success-
ful living. These are Scholarship, Leadership,
Service, and Character. The induction into
the society consists of a banquet, and formal
and informal initiation ceremonies which are
held at the Knoll Country Club. The formal
initiation is an impressive candlelight service,
at which time the new members form a key-
stone, the symbol of the society.

patient guidance in enabling them to iind the
material they so needed.

Our literary publication Echoes appeared for its
second season and included the most successful
work of sophomores, juniors, and seniors in the
essay, sonnet, short story, quatrain, and other lit-
erary iorms. The lack of creative artistic accomplish-
ment among pioneers is proverbial: that our young
high school has shown the talent that appears in
the Echoes is a credit to us all and should be a
source of especial pride to the staff, whose hard
work and critical taste brought it out, and to Miss
I-lrmstrong, whose cordial sympathy and literary
skill made her an inspiration as well as a faculty
advisor. We expect the school's further progress
out of the pioneer stage to show up in the Echoes
of succeeding years.

" CRHCKED ICE "
On November 22nd, we presented an
original and unique vaudeville show
called "Cracked Ice." There were three
main "chunks," while a number of comic
and musical skits filled in between.
"Scho," to whom We owe completely the
success of the show, wrote and directed
"Bagdad," a "surprise-comedy." The Lit-
tle Theater Group put on a typical old-
fashioned villain play as the finale of the
It was a great success financially and
everyone there seemed to enjoy it thor-
The Senior Ball alter weeks of diligent
preparation, was held during the Christ-
mas vacation. The gym was decked with
huge candles framed in evergreen boughs
romantically dimmed lights, and attrac-
tively arranged greens stood in each cor-
ner. The music from the Budd-Laird Or-
chestra completed the perfect setting, and
left pleasant memories for every couple
that was present.
THE SENIOR PLHY
ln Hpril, the Senior class very proudly
presented their play, "What a Life," a
three-act comedy directed by Mr. Dou-
blier. The play concerned a subject famil-
iar to us all, school, but was hilariously
unlike any associations which We have
with it. Henry Hldrich, the lead, has many
troubles that lead to very amusing com-
plications. The play seemed particularly
Well suited to the class and a Wonderful
time was had by the cast and audience
The first attempt at an outside activity
made by the Senior Class Was a very suc-
cessful bridge which was held in October.
It was under the supervision of Mary
Iohnsrud who managed the affair very
capably. The Senior girls made attractive
tallies for the occasion and they were in
keeping with the colorful season. The
bridge was Well supported and was a
great help to the Senior finances.
