THE SENIOR CLASS
Mountain Lakes High School -
Mountain Lakes, New Iersey
The Lakes for 1945 aims to por-
tray the experiences of our'c1ass
throughout its six years at
Mountain Lakes High School, to
help recall the intimate details
which blend together to ionn
the pattern of our high school
days. The Lakes is the scrap-
book which we have been
meaning to keep: it will refresh
our memories and bring to life
again the experiences we have
shared here with our friends-
treasures to share always.
These few words, in reality, can be scarcely
adequate in expressing our sincerest thanks to Mr.
Herbert B. Gooden, our good friend and loyal ad-
visor. But all of us appreciate his unswerving loy-
alty, tireless patience, real interest in guiding us
through our years in high school, and realize that
the success of our many and varied activities has
been due largely to his work. To Mr. Gooden, who
has earned our respect and admiration, the Class
of 1945 gratefully and affectionately dedicates this
LIEUT. HAYDEN L. SCHOFIELD
We, the Class of 1945, express our heartfelt appreciation of the noble ef-
forts and achievements of all those men and women who are serving in the
armed forces of the United States. Especially we offer our homage to Scho,
our principal on military leave, and to Phil Bate, Omer Claiborne, Ken Metz-
ger, and Ted Mitchell, members of our class who left school before the be-
ginning of our senior year and are now giving valiant service to our nation
We hail these protectors of our American Way of life, and we promise to
keep faith with them in our common ideals, to work and fight and pray to
win the war and the peace, and to help establish a better world in the future.

To the Class of 1945:
As this is being written, the ever-changing clouds of war
hang over all of us. Whether we are facing another squall of
battle or the sunshine of peace, none of us can accurately fore-
tell. The only certainty of the future is its uncertainty.
In the face of such conditions, no one can plan much for the
future in the way of material comforts: however a sound philoso-
phy of life coupled with a good education is the best prepara-
tion possible for either a war-torn or quietly peaceful world. The
sound philosophy of life comes with age and experience. You
have started moulding your philosophy 'by what you have done
here in school while getting a part of your education. Your teach-
ers, your parents, your friends have all made their contributions
to your life. As each year passes more and more of the respon-
sibility for your success or failure rests with you alone.
We here at school regret to see you leave us, but at the same
time we envy you. We have high hopes for you based on our
experiences with you. We will listen with pride to accounts of
your future successes and with regret to accounts of your fail-
ures. You alone will detennine which you will have.
We wish you the best of luck. But more important than luck
we wish for you strong characters, real friends, and a great
satisfaction with life in a world of peace.

It is with an added sense of responsibility that we, the class of nineteen
hundred forty-five, face the future. But we have had many experiences at
high school which will help us face new situations.
In the beginning of our high school career, that is in the seventh and
eighth grades, we were becoming acquainted with the school and adjusting
ourselves to new surroundings and heightened ambitions. But it was in the
ninth grade that we got started in class activity. Mr. Gooden was appointed
our class advisor: he urged then that we really work toward our yearbook.
At the end of the Freshman year we had over one hundred dollars in our
The Class of '45 has been known for its ingenuity. As a class, this qual-
ity did not become evident until the Sophomore year. We gave our first
class dance that year, and, wonder of wonders, we made a profit on it! Under
Mr. Gooden's direction and help we erected a booth for selling War Stamps,
a project which proved to be a worthwhile enterprise even though there were
plenty of headaches during the process.
Our Iunior year saw us st fzessfully through the Iunior Prom and the tra-
ditional Testimonial Dinner and Dance.
Butin our Senior year we have seen the culmination of our high school
career with the many responsibilities connected with it. Under the helpful
guidance of class advisor, Mr. Gooden, and class president, Louis Claiborne,
we have had our Senior Ball and a successful Christmas card campaign,
and we have given our Senior play, One Mad Night, under Miss Kerr's able
direction. Although there has been much work connected with these activi-
ties, we have had a lot of fun and we have many happy memories of
Thus we go forth with some learning and some understanding, with the
hope of increasing both as the opportunities arise. Realizing the importance of
the times that we live in and knowing the stress of war, we look with hope
to the future--a future of complete victory of our aims and of the establish-
ment of a durable peace.

We, the hard working Iunior class, have been ex-
tremely successful in all our endirvors to raise money
for our Senior expenditures. Our 'dances have .been
acclaimed by all, and this year we held the food con-
cession at all football games on the home field. The
annual magazine campaign has always added to the
treasury, and our salesmanship ranked high.
The class has a large representation in all extra-
curricular activities, and several of the members are
officers of school organizations. Athletics seem to
attract us all, either to be spectators, or to participate
as players, cheerleaders, or assistants.
This year we have gained the valuable help and
guidance ot our new advisor, Miss Marion Vincent.
With her loyal assistance, we know we will continue
to succeed in the future as we have in the past.

ave several boys on the football and basketball I. V.
Teams, two of our girls are sub-cheerleaders, and
rainy of us are in the Line and Color Club, The Dra

represented in most school activities. Like all other
classes, we have contributed to the tuberculosis fund.
the Red Cross, the March of Dimes, and above all,
to the war effort, by buying War Bonds and Stamps.
The Freshman class boasts of having many mem-
bers on the Honor Roll.
Thus we have made a fine record both in scholar-
ship and in athletics, and we intend to maintain it in
the three hard years which lie before us.

career very successfully, having already given a
Hallowe'en Costume party and rated only second to
the Seniors in the Magazine Campaign.
Our class is represented in the band and orchestra

The Mountain Lakes gridsters, who for the second consecutive year were under a new
coach, turned in a creditable mark of four won, four lost for the 1944 season. The outlook was
not too bright for Mr. Ciardi at the start of the campaign with only six veterans returning from
the 1943 varsity. However, the T-propelled Orange and Blue upset a highly favored Fairlawn
team in its opener and crushed Morristown Prep and St. Bernard's before bowing to a fine Rock-
away outfit. The team suffered a heavy blow at this point when Bob Conover, outstanding ball
carrier, left school. Injuries to key men were instrumental in the squad's losing three of the
last four games. The boys who did yeoman work through a majority of each game were Evans,
Andrus, Anthony, Read, Captain Webster, Moe, Murr, and Black in the line: Wilson, Gifford, Tip-
py, Conover, McClure, Wagner, and Wight in the backfield. Another fine team appears to be
in the making for 1945 since a large group of experienced players is due to return. Coach Ciardi
is to be congratulated for his adept handling of the squad in his initial season here.

The Orange and Blue quintet, somewhat
hampered by a lack of experienced re-
serves, achieved a commendable record
for the 1945 campaign. Coach Ciardi
shaped his starting team around Captain
Dick Evans, George Wilson, Warren Gif-
ford, Bill Webster, Tony Tippy, A1 Maier,
and Firman McClure. Evans, one of the
finest netsters in the annals of the school,
led in scoring for the second consecutive
year and was named on several all-star
teams. Quality rather than quantity was
the keynote for this year's squad: a more
outstanding record might have resulted.

promising undergraduate prospects to prep

The Mountain Lakes harriers completed a highly successful
season with the excellent record of six victories and one defeat.
All seven meets were with far larger schools, and this fact
makes the Lakers' performance even more impressive. In ad-
dition to the regular schedule, the Orange and Blue runners
competed at the New York University Invitational Meet and the
New Iersey State Cross Country Championships and finished
well up among the schools of New York, New Iersey, Pennsyl-
vania, and New England. Dean Noll was the outstanding runner
and was undefeated during the regular campaign. He was
closely followed by Pat Boardman, Howard Tyzzer, Bob Tweit,
and Leonard Frey. Others on the squad who deserve commen-
dation were Art Franz, Ray Wittman, Huntley Weaver, and Iohn
Smith. Prospects are extremely bright for next year with all save
Captain Frey, Wittman, and Weaver returning. Coach Willing,
through his patience and untiring efforts, has placed cross
country running in a prominent place on the Mountain Lakes
sports calendar. '

COACH RICHARD WILLING
The Orange and Blue, a perennial power in track
entered the 1945 season with a veteran squad and a
handful of promising recruits, who combined to pro-
duce another "trackless wonder." Ted Wagner, Dean
Noll, Howard Tyzzer, Pat Boardman, Al Van Duesen.
Iohnny Smith, Bob Tweit, Art Franz, and Leonard Frey
were the outstanding runners: Bill Webster, Ray Witt-
man, and Martin Ward did well with the weight
events: Coke Andrus, Bob Hassard, Pete Haas, and
Ed Stapley excelled in the jumps. Mr. Wil1ing's de-
votion to and knowledge of the sport should assure
him of continued success with his teams.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION
In the past year all student organizations have come under the jurisdic-
tion of the S. G. A., which has widened its scope to include the Student Council,
or legislative body, the Service Club or executive branch, and the Student
Court or Iudicial department.
Last year, through the combined efforts of Mr. Smith and a few student
leaders, the S. G. A. adopted a revised constitution, and this year the new
rules were successfully put into effect. To make student government a suc-
cess, students rnust take advantage oi their opportunity of self-government by
suggesting measures to it, obeying its decrees, and promoting interest in
Thus the training in democracy we receive by participation in high
school student government can prepare us for good citizenship and service
to our country in future years.

The Service Club has one of the most important duties of the school:
maintaining order in the hall and lunch room. 'I'his year the club has
inaugurated a number of valuable changes. Proudly, the members wear
the official arm bands when they are on duty: these bands have been issued
for the first time this year. This organization has become affiliated with the
S. G. A.: Tony Tippy, president of the Service Club, is also vice-president of
the S. G. A. Under the excellent guidance of Mrs. Thompson, the Service
Club is indeed translating its name into action and is truly serving the school

The MOUNTAINEER, our school newspaper,
has been a successful and popular enterprise
for the past three years. Issues are published
monthly, and the circulation is about four
hundred, including the copies sent to service
men by Mrs. Thompson. The staff includes
some thirty hard-working journalists and typ-
ists. The school looks forward to each issue
of the MOUNTAINEER for its well liked col-
umns and especially for its sports write-ups.
The MOUNTAINEER should continue to grow
in quality and popularity in the future under
the patient and wise guidance of Miss Nast.

This year a new activity has been introduced
to Mountain Lakes High School-the Dramatic
Club. Already this group has gained a large
and enthusiastic following, which is rapidly
learning the value of this club's work.
The high school' students learned that, al-
though the fire of giving a play is perhaps the
motive which prompts most people to engage
in dramatic activities, the individual derives
many more permanent values from the club
work. The members have discovered that the
training for public speaking is probably the
most important value of amateur drama to
the individual taking an active part. In their
dramatic work this year the students learned
such simple things as how to stand before an
audience, what to do with their hands,, and
most important of all, how to use their voices
correctly. They have acquired poise and self-
Already the group has begun to reach its
goal, and under the able leadership of Miss
Alice Kerr, long and prosperous years ahead
are anticipated for this organization.

THE SENIOR PLAY
One Mad Night, a mystery-farce involving several inmates of
an insane asylum, was one of the most successful plays ever
produced by a senior class at Mountain Lakes High School. Its
tremendous appeal was due to the exceptional acting ability of
the cast, the excellent directing of Miss Alice Kerr, the effective
make-up and costuming under the supervision of Miss Mildred
Callaway, and the realistic setting, handled by Mr. Frank Wik-
ander. The cast follows:
Don Cutter, a young playwright: ....... .......... G ene Black

"Anyone who wants to sing should
A C A P E L. L A C H 0 I R have his chance." This is the spirit
which originated the famed A Ca-
pella Choir of Mountain Lakes High
School. Ever since its organization,
the choir has had one of the most
enthusiastic followings of any group
in the school. Mr. Milkey, the be-
loved director, has established no
specific requirements for member-
ship because he feels such action
would defeat the purpose of this or-
ganization-to let anyone who wants
to, participate in the popular activity
of singing. It is not surprising, there-
fore, to find that there are ninety-
five members in the choir. During
the year, the A Capella Choir pre-
sents two delightful concerts: one at
mess-1 Christmas time and one in late
-dent: 1LelS'9' Sec' spring. These concerts are eagerly

BAND AND ORCHESTRA
Two other important musical organizations of M. L. H. S. are the Band
and the Orchestra. Mr. Mill-:ey leads both these groups and instills in the
members a sense of the importance and the power of music. The band plays
at all the football games, pep-rallies, and assemblies: the orchestra's most
important function is playing on Graduation night.

THE LINE AND COLOR CLUB-IUNIOR ART CLUB
'l'he primary purpose of these clubs is to promote an active interest in fine arts by allow-
ing the members to select the type of work which they wish to do and to develop their skill
in this field. With the aid of Miss Callaway's capable guidance, the Line and Color Clubs
have prospered and will continue to prosper. L
One of the highest honors Moun-
tain Lakes High School can bestow
on a member of the senior or junior
class is election to the National
Honor Society. Students of these
classes who are outstanding in
qualities of character, service,
scholarship, and leadership are se-
lected for membership and are ex-
pected to display these qualities at
all times and to help develop them
in their school mates, Bobbe Wurm-
stich, lack Stringer, Leonard Frey,
