To each student true.
Hear our praises,
As each voice is raised,
Glory to the Alma Mater
Of our high-school days.
Tender memories of our high-school
Shall forever last,
And our love for thee, dear Mynderse,
Cannot be surpassed.
As we leave thee, Alma Mater,
To tread paths anevv,
Grateful hearts have we for Mynderse
And her teachers too.

SENIOR CLASS I-IISTCJRY
Freshmen! What memories that word brings to us! Four years ago we were those
innocent people who believed the marble staircase was for our use, and that the high
school World had just been waiting for our advent. But, how we have changed since
our initial year at Mynderse, with Miss Eastwood, Miss Pratt and Mr. Davidson as
our class advisers! They helped us through the mysteries of that organization period
when we proudly elected Bill Edds first president and John Brady, vice-president.
With our class colors, the dignified blue and gold, flying, '31 began to make itself
known at Mynderse.
The first of our activities was a Wiener roast at Recreation Field. Memories of that
are slightly hazy, or at least smoky, but it was a fairly successful party. Next were
two merry events in the gym, a Ha1lowe'en masquerade-with ghosts, tramps, clowns,
and freaks invading the gym, and later a Christmas party. By the spring we were
feeling bankrupt, so gave ourselves a benefit at the Fisher theater, our iirst successful
Sophomores! Here we found ourselves in care of Miss Vreeland, Miss Smith and
Miss Cushman. A new freshman group had succeeded us as the "evergreens" of
Mynderse. Perhaps we were not so carefree as in the year before, at least not all our
energy was spent on studies-many of our class proved their mettle in athletics.
Lee Giusti, Joe Anglim and John Morse made the boys' varsity basketball team, while
Ruth Hilkert, Charlett Stubley and Ethel Hayes made the girls' team. Lee and John
were also out for baseball and football, and Joe for baseball.
Bud Miller and Catherine Fyfe were chosen as our pilots for that year, and they
led the class through another Hallowe'en party. We again sponsored a benefit picture
to insure our financial stability. Near the end of the term we gave an all-school party
in the gym and 'a class picnic at Owasco.
Two years of life at Mynderse were behind us. We were full-fledged juniors, proud,
and eager for the activities of the year. We elected Catherine Fyfe as president, Ruth
I-lilkert, as vice-president. This year Miss Miller, Miss Compitello, Miss Cook and
Mr. Baker were our advisers.
Seeking originality for our annual Hallowe'en party, we finally decided on ajunior
Fair at which our guests could spend their money and enjoy the mysteries of the
sideshows and the wild animal tent, or hear strange prophecies from our "gypsy"
fortune teller. Vaughn Fegley's orchestra furnished music for' dancing. The student
and faculty attendance made the Fair a great success.
In the spring we made our stage debut, presenting a three-act comedy, "The New
Poor." This influx of Russian nobility, including the Grand Duke, Prince Vladimar,
and Princess Irina, proved very entertaining, and Detective O'Farrell's "Aha!" was
The class had a jolly trip to Owasco on the Saturday of Regents week-a celebration
which lasted until the last strains of the dance music ceased from the pavilion, when
we piled sleepily into the bus, and started homeward.

The crowning event of the year, our farewell to the class of 1930, was the Prom.
Miss Compitello and Mr. Baker Worked with us steadily and the gym became an
enticing garden with its colorful flowers and soft lights, later enchanting music, and
the usual gay Prom crowd made the dance another perfect party.
How quickly we had arrived at the coveted goal-seniorship! We found ourselves
in famous room I9 with Miss O'Brien, who is not merely a teacher and class adviser,
but a friend. We chose Bill Hamill to lead us through this last important year at
The silver tea-dance was given in September at which the faculty were the guests
of honor. Dainty lavender and yellow decorations, mellow lights, the glistening silver
tea service, the gift of 1930 to Mynderse, and the gayly sociable crowd gave the gym
an air out of keeping with its usual drab appearance. Nineteen Thirty-one was
safely launched on its senior year.
"It won't Be Long Now," the senior play, was given November ninth and tenth.
Miss Hathaway used two different casts for the two performances, a procedure which
worked out most successfully.
Following on the heels of the play was the holiday ball, the most beautiful party
ever given at Mynderse. The gym became a forest of evergreens and fragrant balsams.
The seniors and guests danced to the music of "Chuck" Hunter's orchestra, and re-
gretfully remembered that this was our last social function as seniors.
In Room I9 we have left a remembrance in a reproduction of the painting, King
Lear, the original of which is in the Metropolitan Art Museum. We hope that future
senior classes will brighten the walls with other pictures.
Since there has long been a need for a tennis court available to the students of
Mynderse, the class of '31 has contributed the first money to the fund required to
build such a court on the athletic field.
Before closing our history we must mention the MYNDERSIAN, for this tells the
story of our years at Mynderse in the most complete way. In dedicating our book to
Miss Hathaway, Dramatic Coach, there was a certain connotation in the name, that
suggested another Hathaway, the famous Ann of Shakespeare's time. So we naturally
thought that a Shakesperian art theme would be a fitting background for a book
dedicated to one, a lover of Shakespeare, who is herself exemplar of the aft she teaches.
Now senior year is ending and we are coming close to those five bitter-sweet days
in our last week in Mynderse, Baccalaureate, Class Day, Commencement Day, Prom
Day and Senior Dinner Day, and then there will be the long good-bye, and as these
memories creep in to sadden these last weeks, we seem to hear
"Where, oh, where are the grave old Seniors?
Safe now in the wide, wide world."

Back in September 1918, four harried faculty advisers had the pleasant task of
organizing our rather unruly horde of freshmen into a class. With Gladys McCoy as
first president, we set out to prove ourselves true representatives, loyal to Mynderse
traditions. For the next ten months We did our best in an inconspicuous vvay to make
ourselves felt as a class, and then our first year ended.
Proud to be sophomores and to move to more dignified rooms on the second floor,
we began our second year with vim. Jack Fyfe vvas our leader for that short year,
and our only activity was a novel get-together party with the post-grads as guests,
and then We moved to the West end of the corridor-we were juniors.
We are sure that being so close to the senior room is having its effect on us. Having
begun the year right by electing Mary Haley to the presidency, we planned our first
party, a very informal masquerade, inviting all the classes.
Later in the season, that the friendship of the seniors and juniors might be further
cemented, We gave a reception and dance for the seniors.
The undeniable success of our play, "The Call of the Banshee," which was our
first venture in dramatics, further testified to our strength and promise.
The most important social event of the semester is still a part of the future-our
Prom. Hovvever, with the invaluable aid of our advisers we expect to use a Hawaiian
theme successfully this year and thus achieve another memorable Prom to bring our
third year of Mynderse life to a fitting close.

The class of 1933, eighty-four in number, have reached the "Wise fool" stage, vve
are sophomores. From this seemingly high elevation we glance somewhat scornfully
back at the inexperienced and frightened freshmen we were once, for, after two years
in Mynderse we really feel quite grown-up and sophisticated. Someone has said
that sophomore year is "Much Ado About Nothing," and to be perfectly honest,
there isn't much for a sophomore to do, but we managed to have an election at which
we gave Marian Story the leadership for the year, and then this serious business being
over vve decided to have a party. Dancing! Doughnuts! Cider! They were the high-
lights of the party of which Helen Hadley was chairman and the P. G.'s guests, and
as they say in the great open spaces, "A good time was had by all."
We have been busy trying out in the various activities in Mynderse: athletics,
journalism, and music particularly, and vve have shown some promise in all fields.
Four of our number are lettermen in football and six, in basketball. So With this start,
in the tvvo years to come vve hope to prove our merit as successors of the present
holders of honors in school affairs.
The year is almost ended and we would be anxious to move on and become juniors
if it weren't for one thing-moving-up day for us, means losing our sister class, 1931,
and that is the only cloud on '33's horizon.
To the seniors vvho will shortly be graduated, We make promise that We shall try
to carry on their ideals so that when vve come to the end of the high-school trail we
shall be worthy successors to the Class of '31,

The audience waited expectantly. Why? They had come to see "The Grand Review
ofthe Freshman Class of 193o," which was the largest class Mynderse had ever had.
The curtain slowly rose.
Scene one showed the opening day of school. A long line of bewildered and fright-
ened frosh stood at the door trembling with fear. When they were admitted, they
stared at everything curiously. Their school life had never seemed so complicated
before. When they saw the seniors passing to classes with ease and experience, the
freshmen just gazed at them with awe. Oh! to be lordly seniors.
The second scene showed the freshmen settled after nearly four weeks of active
and enlightening school life. They were electing their officers. Amid general con-
fusion and after much discussion and argument Cecil Fitzgerald was chosen president.
Miss Wickes, Miss Caldwell, Miss Menegay and Mr. Taylor were chosen class
The gymnasium was the setting for the third scene. Girls and boys were playing
basketball, and how they played it! The announcement was made that twelve fresh-
men had made the squad: seven girls and live boys. The boys' and girls' interclass
teams were also very promising.
Next scene was the banner draped gymnasium where the freshmen were having their
class party. Dancing and games were enjoyed until the advisers said, "Time to go
home," and Nineteen Thirty-Four's party came to an end.
The review ended when the freshmen marched onto the stage clasping their certifi-
cate of Sophomoreship, for they had successfully completed their first high-school

The MYNDERSIAN, the older of the two school ublications, dates back six years
to the class of 197.5 which published the book de icated to Miss O'Brien.
Each succeeding class has tried to make their annual a representative review of their
school year. The staffs have felt that because of the permanent character of an annual,
and since it alone tells in one edition the complete story of a school year in all ac-
tivities and becomes a treasured ossession, it should express the highest Mynderse
traditionsg so a certain standardn of accomplishment has been established in our
annuals. We of 1931 have used an Elizabethan theme this year, and the art Work
done by seniors in Mrs. Steigerwald's department is of that period. The other staffs
have worked under the direct supervision of Miss O'Brien, who has complete charge
of the year-book Work in Mynderse.

This year marks the fourth anniversary of the Mynderse Microphone. Last year
the Micro hone became a member of the Eastern Interscholastic Press Association,
enjoying ull privileges of this organization. This year progress has taken several
steps forward. Because of a larger circulation, and an improved financial status,
practically every issue of the Microphone has contained a cut of some prominent
person around Mynderse, thus increasing the personal interest. In addition the Micro-
phone is now an active member of the Quill and Scroll Society, a national honorary
journalistic group. ln contests sponsored by this society in various phases of news-
paper writing, Microphone staff members have won high honors, both in national
and sectional tournaments. This fact assumes greater importance when it is con-
sidered that Mynderse has no regular class in journalism, and that service is rendered
voluntarily, however, membership is based on scholastic standing and exceptional
ability in writing.

The present Mynderse Academy Alumni Association renewed its activities for the
third successive year since its reorganization, at a special meeting held on Saturday,
the twenty-seventh of December, 1930.
At the organization meeting Fred L. Story, of the class of 1891, was chosen presi-
dent to succeed Paul S. Sisson. The following officers are assisting him: Miss Dorothy
Adamy, secretary, and Miss Lucy Cardwell, treasurer.
The chief social event of the Association was a delightful holiday banquet in the
Hotel Gould on December 2.9, 1930, attended by one hundred and ten active and
associate members. The committee, under the chairmanship of Mrs. Orville Cook,
provided a dinner and a very entertaining program. Devillo Pollard as toastmaster
presented Miss Daniels, who welcomed the class of 1930 into the association. In
reply Clark Rumsey, President of the class of I93O, gave a brief address. Mr. F. J.
Medden, a graduate of Mynderse and former Superintendent of Schools, gave an
entertaining history of Mynderse Academy in the old days. William S. MacDonald,
as the principal speaker of the evening, told those present what Mynderse Academy
means to Seneca Falls. After the banquet the members went to the Mynderse gym-
nasium where they danced to music furnished by Vaughan Fegley's orchestra.
THE TEACHERS' CLUB
The Teachers' Club of Seneca Falls, which was organized in 1916, is now in its
fifth year. In its purpose of promoting sociability among the teachers of the public
schools, the club has been most successful.
The oflicers chosen to carry out this year's program were Frances Hathaway,
president, Freda Wright, vice-president, Grace Delano, secretary, and Kathryn Adamy,
The season began with a weiner roast at the lake with Miss Cardwell as chairman.
In the following month Miss Menegay had charge of a merry Hallowe'en party in
the gym. Miss O'Brien's committee for December made a contribution to the local
charity organizations in place of having the usual Christmas party. Miss Compitello
and her committee took advantage of crisp winter weather to give a sleigh ride and
a dinner at Canoga, which was probably the gayest of the club parties. With June
in the ofling, Miss Smith's committee is planning a delightful out-of-town dinner to
end the school year's activities of the organization.
A feature of this year's program has been welfare work to relieve the village un-
employment, also to help the teachers in the state who do not come under the present
retirement fund. A benefit bridge party of which Miss Adamy had charge was given
for the latter during the winter months.
The success of the teachers' club, measured by the pleasure and friendliness of
spirit brought forth, is a very great success indeed.

Acanthus, With a membership of 19, was organized two years ago by Nlrs. Steiger-
wald. The aim of this aft club, whose name, Acanthus, is derived from an ancient
Greek motif of decoration and ornamentation, is to build up a sincere, progressive art
interest in Mynderse Academy. A student who has completed tvvo art courses is
qualified for membership.
Acanthus this year presented Mynderse Academy with a tinted etching of the Rose
Window in the Rheims Cathedral, the funds for the painting being procured by a
Christmas gift sale. In May a silver tea was held in the gymnasium, and later in that
month the Senior members of the club were entertained at a dinner at the Gould. In
April Le Cercle Frangais and Acanthus held a joint meeting to discuss French art and
Acanthus has for its emblem an attractive pin which is a replica of an artist's
palette with brushes and colors, bearing the name of Acanthus.
The I93I officers of Acanthus are Herbert Yells, president, Robert Jones, vice-
president, Freda Evans, secretary, David Fegley, Chairman of Program Committee,
Ethel Hayes, Chairman of Social Activities.
LE CERCLE FRANCAIS
What is it all the French One students want to be in? Vour avez miron! Cert "Le
Cercle Frangaisf' But only French Two and Three students and those who have
passed French are eligible.
Our president is chosen from the French Three class so that he can conduct the
monthly meetings entirely in French. We have chosen Catherine Fyfe for that office,
Willard Fohl is vice-president, Gladys McCoy, secretary, and Elizabeth Redcleft,
By the end of the year we shall be able to tell you that Bizet, Gounod, Chaminade
are composers, and that a work of Henri is music, not a hat. We shall feel that we
have visited France and have seen its beauty through art, music, literature, and its
wonderful "frozen music" as an eminent French woman once described architecture.
Thanks to Miss Cushman we shall be acquainted with the land whose language we
study and its contributions to the world.
WIG AND ROUGE
In, September of last year, it was decided that the old Dramatic Club should be
revived under a new name so that it might have a fresh start in life. The name was
chosen, which was the delightfully suggestive one of Wig and Rouge. The member-
ship include all who have participated in prize-speaking or have had a major part
in any high-school production. At the first meeting, Willard Fohl was elected presi-
dent, Grace Hudson, vice-pesident, Margaret Strong, secretary, David Fegley, treas-
urer. Miss Frances Hathaway, director of dramatics, is faculty adviser. As their pro-
gram for this year, Wig and Rouge plan to study the one-act play, the aft of make-up
and similar phases of dramatic work.

THE BAND, ORCHESTRA AND GLEE
Music is becoming increasingly popular in the schools, for people are beginning to
realize its value as an educational factor, as well as a means of entertainment. Schools
throughout the country are taking it up, and Mynderse is certainly no exception,
for we have a band, an orchestra and a glee club.
These organizations believe that a basic training in music can be of great assistance
to the pupil receiving it. First of all, music is a fine means of entertainment, it provides
for a profitable use of leisure time, it develops a spirit of cooperation and teamwork.
Instrumental music in particular may help to bring out musical talent in a pupil. It
sustains interest in school for some pupils, just as athletics and aft sustain it for
others. In short, it helps to build good citizens. Our musical organizations, then,
aim to train students in such a way that they may receive some of the advantages of
music named above.
The band is the largest of the three organizations and is under the baton of Mr.
John Fraser. It is composed of about forty pieces. In addition there is a beginners'
band which serves as a stepping stone to the band itself. Practice of an hour is held
every Thursday during school time. Each member of the band takes a weekly lesson
which is given free of charge. An attendance record is kept and this year marks are
At the end of the year letters are presented to band members who have attained
some proficiency on their instruments, and who also have a good attendance record.
Last year Hfteen students were awarded letters. The band has been quite active,
even practicing and giving concerts during the summer months.
The orchestra is an organization which fills another place in school music-a place
that is distinctly different from that occupied by the band. The orchestra, because of
its very nature, is a sort of complement to the band. The orchestra can play for school
functions such as class plays and musical comedies for which the band is unfitted.
The orchestra has proved very useful in this connection. This year it has supplied
music for the senior class play, the junior class play, the Prize-Speaking Contest,
and the musical comedy. Its work in the comedy was especially useful and helped
to make "Pickles" an outstanding success.
This year the orchestra was enlarged by the addition of four players, bringing the
total number of players to about fifteen. We hope that its proficiency has increased
along with its size. For the first time letters are to be awarded to those who have
made progress. This system results in increased effort on the part of all the orchestra
members. Practice is held twice a week after school under the capable direction of
Lately Mynderse has added a glee club to its group of musical organizations, to
round them out. For some time the need of a glee club has been felt, chiefly, perhaps,
because of the great advantage it brings to the production of a musical comedy.
The members, directed by Mrs. Barben, will give a concert in May.
Advance our standards, set upon our foesg
Our ancient word of courage, fair Saint George,
Inspire us with the spleen of fiery dragons!
Upon them! Victory sits on our he1ms."

The 1930 football season at Mynderse was
most successful, our goal line having been
crossed but once in six games, thus attesting
to the tremendous defensive strength that
Mynderse possesses. The schedule was the
hardest one played in the past five years, and
as a consequence each game was closely con-
tested with the result always in doubt until
the final gun was heard.
Mr. Wormuth, line coach, was greeted
with the task of making a line out of prac-
tically all green material, and he is to be
congratulated in the success of his efforts, as
Mynderse possesses as powerful a defensive
line as any scholastic team in Central New
York. Ofliensively, however, they did not
function as well as they might have, but an
inexperienced squad cannot be moulded into
a high class team in one season, and their
faults will undoubtedly be straightened out
in the coming year.
Mr. Baker, head coach, had the problem
of sifting the four best backs out of a bevy of
experienced backlield men. Several of his ex-
perienced backs proved very disappointing
and it was necessary to lill in with green
material which he did with great success as
the Waterloo victory proves. The necessary
shifting of the backs in an effort to obtain an
effective combination hampered the team's
progress and is in a measure the cause of the
The team lost but one game and that to
Onondaga Valley of Syracuse by a 6eo score.
The season was, however, marred by two
scoreless ties played with Camillus and
Geneva, but two victories in the final two
weeks of the season over Starkey and Water-
loo, as well as an early season victory over
Clyde, made the season a successful one.
Possibilities of a strong team are good for
next year, as nine lettermen are returning,
four of whom are backfield men and live
linemen. Two or three non-letter men, who
last season played on the second team, are
conceded good chances of making next year's

From the time when Shakespeare himself trod the boards of such theatres as the
Globe, up to the present, his heroines and their words and actions have been in-
terpreted in many different ways. Each actress has added something to the character-
izations until every part now has been so deeply searched that it seems as though
nothing more could possibly be discovered.
ln the dramatist's own time, slim youths took the parts of women, and though
they satisfied the crowd, were not really qualified to develop the lines which were
assigned to them. Incredible as it may seem, such figures as Lady Macbeth, Juliet,
and Desdemona were only minor in the drama, their menfolk stood out.
First of all the long line of Shakespearian actresses was Sarah Kemble Siddons, a
shining light of the eighteenth century drama. Even she seemed doomed to failure
because, in her first London appearance, David Garrick, the Shylock to her Portia,
was selfish enough to resent her acting and used his influence to prevent her re-
engagement. However, her unusual ability shown while acting in the provinces gave
her such a reputation that she was recalled to London, and continued to appear
there from 1782. to 1831, the year of her death.
Mrs. Siddons was a perfect type of tragedy queen. Tall and stately and dark, she
swept the audience off their feet when she declaimed stirringly such lines as those in
which Lady Macbeth goads her husband to his bloody deeds. Everything about her
acting was heavy, she could not leave off the air of dark tragedy which hung always
about her, and therefore she was not able to do all parts well. Juliet and Rosalind
need light touches, they are no embittered women but gay young girls. Mrs. Siddons
acted every moment, even in society she never forgot her dignity and impressiveness.
The one thing that marred her perfection was the fact that she failed to understand
that Shakespeare's people are always human, and sometimes she made them im-
In Mrs. Siddon's footsteps followed Mrs. Charles Kean, not so great an actress,
but a forerunner of the modern school which stresses restraint rather than over-
emphasis. Mrs. Kean's greatest work was in aiding in the training of the incompar-
able Ellen Terry.
No list of Shakespearian actresses is complete without the name of Miss Terry,
thought by many to be greatest of all. Born in Warwickshire, which was also the
birthplace of Shakespeare, Ellen Terry came of a theatrical family, her father and
mother both being talented actors. At the age of eight she played the little boy Mamil-
lius in "A Winter's Tale," in which Mrs. Kean was Hermione. From then on she ad-
vanced very rapidly. But when she began to play Ophelia, Katherine, Portia, Cordelia
and other famous characters, she astounded the public by her original interpretations.
ln appearance she was totally unlike her predecessors. Though tall, slim, and graceful,
her yellow-haired, gray-eyed type of beauty was much less melancholy than that of
dark and fiery Mrs. Siddons. Perhaps this influenced Miss Terry in her method of
developing her parts, certain it is that she had an entirely new viewpoint on some of
the characters. The greatest change was in her rendition of Lady Macbeth. Prior to
that time the stage Lady Macbeth had been a cruel, ambitious woman, using her
husband as a tool to do her wishes. All through the drama she is harsh and uncom-

. P ' .
promising, really unfeminine, bent only on making Macbeth king, that she may
wear a queenly crown. Imagine the surprise of the crowd when, on the opening night,
a slim, quiet woman, simply dressed, began to read the famous letter, which had
always before been done in a tragic manner, as placidly as any normal woman might
read a communication from her husband. As the play advanced, Miss Terry deftly
developed the idea of a woman whose usually kindly nature is changed by an over-
whelming love for her husband, and her desire to make him happy and peaceful at
any cost. She was never terrifying or repulsive, only pitiful, even in insanity the
illusion of gentleness was kept. When the curtain went down, the audience realized
that they had seen a radical departure from tradition, and it is a great tribute to
Miss Terry's art that she continued to draw crowds which would ordinarily have
refused to permit any change in time-honored custom and ritual.
Now We come to the representative of the twentieth century, Julia Marlowe.
Without a doubt she, of all those who have played Shakespeare, was one of the most
careful students of the great master. She read each play in which she appeared fifty
times, and her copies of the dramas are covered with notes and suggestions on how
they should be done. Though she was tall, dark, and dignified, too, Miss Marlowe
was as unlike the earlier school of actresses as can well be imagined. She had determined
that those who attempted Shakespearian drama were too intent on emphasis, that is,
they spoke the lines in such a way as to make them seem not the utterances of actual
people but the speeches of practised orators. In some cases she contended that by
this method they had changed the original meaning, and she made it her mission to
correct these false impressionsululia Marlowe's supreme gift was her voice, a perfect
instrument of expression. By the pitch of her tones she could suggest humor, sadness,
bitterness, all the shades of feeling imaginable. Everyone who wrote of her com-
mented on the unbelievable beauty of her voice, and when one considers that she
joined to this expert acting, beauty, and stage presence, one realizes what a great
actress she must have been.
Two other names deserve to be mentioned as recent exponents of new ideas in
Shakespearian acting, Jane Cowl, called the perfect type of Juliet, and Mary Pickford,
who brought to the screen "The Taming of the Shrew."
From reading about and comparing the success of various actresses in Shakespearian
roles, it becomes very apparent that she who most truly interprets the immortal
lines is she who strives always "to hold, as 'twere, the mirror up to nature."

As I was reading the "Times" this morning, I saw with delight an announcement
which read: "Fripperie.r of '55 opening tonight at the Nugent Palace of Pleasure."
Since I had been watching for just such a revue as this to cheer my evening, I de-
termined to go, especially since the show was sponsored by Harry Nugent, whose
chain of White Way theatres is internationally famous.
That evening, stepping out of the taxi which had brought me to the theater, I
turned to pay the driver and found myself looking into a bearded face which was
strangely familiar. "Why, Romayne Soper!" I exclaimed. "Is this the end of your
"Oh, I don't do this regularly, I'm just getting material for my next play," he
answered, "and, by the way, you never paid me that quarter you borrowed 2.4 years
ago. You can add that to my fare." I paid him his fare plus my ancient debt, and
turned to enter the theater.
At the entrance to the main auditorium of the theater, William Robenolt, in the
uniform of a head usher, helped me to find my seat from which I could view almost
the entire audience. As soon as I had seated myself, I began to look around me recog-
nizing many familiar faces. Just ahead sat Faith Shedd, the famous child-psychologist
of Columbia University CI remembered that the last time I visited them her own
children had misbehaved almost continuouslyj and Professor Elwell, social-service
worker among the Czechoslovakians in New York. Right across the aisle was Ruth
Hilkert, whose painting of the sun at night was acclaimed as most unusual and
interesting by the critics. Her escort was none other than Herbert Yells, whose clear
explanation of the Einstein theory had made it possible for this subject to be made
a freshman half-year course in all the leading high schools. Pauline Salisbury writes
the textbooks, and it is rumored that a new one is forthcoming on an entirely new
theory advanced by Professor Yells himself.
I now turned my attention to the box in which sat a gay party. I perceived that
the hosts were Governor and Mrs. Charles Salato Cshe was the former Elma Demontl
Charles' silvery hair and dignified bearing make him a very distinguished figure. At
Mrs. Salato's right sat Judge Fitzpatrick, Chiefljustice of the Supreme Court, engaged
in what was evidently a very serious conversation with John VanEtten, Wall Street
Magnate and collector of rare Afghan pottery.
A stir in the adjoining box made me look over there to see another group come in.
Fausto Calarco, the archaeologist, whose excavations in Yucatan have made him
famous, was coming in, accompanied by Mrs. Calarco, who, as Mary Lucchesi, held
the world record for speedy typing, and Ken Noble, Navy football coach, who is
still looking for his "Share" in the world. John I-Iaslip, the well-known interior-
decorator, followed with Madeline Crough, first woman Senator from New York.
But look! The house lights were dimming, the foot lights threw the orchestra pit
into full relief, and Frank Wilkes, with his Paderewski hair cut still noticeable, led

his Cuddling Cavemen in one ofthe latest toe-tickling tunes,vvritten by Samuel Cukell,
the highest paid song writer in America. As soon as they had finished, Bradford
Miller, producer of the show, who has taken Flo Ziegfeld's place as the "Glorifier
of the American Girl," stepped before the curtain and made a short speech, saying
that he hoped We would enjoy the production. A
While he was speaking, I glanced over my program, noting that Grace Hudson
had costumed the revue CBud always employs her because of her flair in designingj,
that Janet Salcman had written the dialogue, and that Charlett Stubley was responsi-
ble for the settings. When the curtain Went up, a page came out to announce that the
first skit would be a one-act play, featuring Ethel Hayes and David Fegley, who
were the successors to Lynn Fontanne and Alfred Lunt. William Hamill, whose
characterization of the murderer had caused three women to faint at the dress re-
hearsal and Lee Giusti, who had taken the part of Philo Vance in the recent revival
of that old mystery play, "The Green Murder Case" were also in the cast. There
was some delay in beginning the play and I heard the woman next to me say that
Ethel was probably indulging in a bit of artistic temperament. However, when it did
start, the show went off beautifully and all the actors graciously took curtain calls.
Next on the program was a group of three songs by Madame Freda Evans Fitz-
patrick, prima-donna, accompanied by Ruth Wheeler, the violinist, who has re-
cently returned from a European tour. Judge Fitzpatrick seemed very proud of his
talented wife and smiled benignly when she received an encore.
In the interval between Madame Fitzpatrick's songs and the next bit, I again
glanced at my program, and noticed a striking advertisement with a cut of an im-
pressive hotel looming up against mountains in the background. The paragraph
below read: "Bailey-Bracht Manor, Best Winter and Health Resort Hotel in the Alps.
Professional instruction in all winter sports by Joseph Anglim, resident professional.
Treatments and massage given by Dorothy Bailey, pupil of Lanneg the European
Master Business Manager, Jack Bracht."
It seemed very appropriate and in line with what I had just read, when Lavergne
Brown and Helen Doran proved to be the next attraction. Their skating was sensa-
tional, especially the last act, in which Helen, balanced on Lavergne's hand almost
touched the ceiling of the stage. The next attraction was Alice Hamill, baby-voiced
crooner, who, at la Helen Kane whom some of us remember dimly from our high-
school days, sang mournful little songs with a tear in every line. ,
Again came an intermission and this time the house lights went on. To my surprise
I found that Catherine Fyfe, dramatic critic of the "Times" had seated herself beside
me. I asked her her opinion of the show and she said she thought it was very well
done, which is high praise from such a hardened critic as she is famed for being. We
began discussing current literature and she recommended as one of the best books of
a N ' s Q2 A

. P ' .
the season, "Thrilling Incidents in the Life of a Lion-Tamer's Wife" by Lulu Kinnetz,
saying that Lulu writes as interestingly and vividly as she talks.
Up went the curtain again to reveal Roy Jones and Beryl McMillen, the Amos 'n
Andy of 1955. They write their own dialogue and it is certainly amusing. They've
been offered a contract to appear at the court of Persia in the spring and they're
seriously considering an acceptance. Bill Edds, their business manager and booking
agent, says that when the Shah gets up to 3o,ooo aleks Cabout S5oo,oooD, he'll con-
sider it, and not until then. He's running around now trying to find out whether the
pair will have to learn Persian and use it in their dialogue or not.
Next on the program were Dyson and Coleman in a tight-rope walking act. That
is, Frances walked the rope and Seba stood below to catch her. The high spot in
their appearance came at the time when Frances balanced a typewriter on a band
around her neck, and typed a letter while walking fearlessly along a rope stretched
60 feet in the air.
At the conclusion of their performance, Bud came out before the curtain again
and announced that he would now present the honor guests of this first-night show-
ing. A spotlight swung around and finally picked out a box in which sat-Miss
O'Brien and Miss Hathaway! Bud went on to say that it gave him great pleasure to
honor two such famous people as Miss O'Brien, noted all over the world as a trans-
lator of Shakespeare into Chinese, and Miss Hathaway, the only woman director of
television-talking pictures in Hollywood. Miss Hathaway doesn't at all resemble
the energetic person she really is. She reminds me of an old-fashioned grandmother
with her snowy hair and beaming smile. You know what I mean-the kind that you
can imagine saying, "Bless my soul, do have some more cookies, Jimmie!"
Just after Bud finished his graceful presentation, the reflected glow of the spotlight
revealed Dr. Richard Brandt, who has made a name for himself by discovering and
isolating a germ which has been the bane of Russia---chronic laziness, which parades
under the false name of Sovietism. His bravery in announcing his discovery is highly
praiseworthy, it surely takes some courage to tell a Russian he's lazy. With Dr.
Brandt was his private and confidential secretary, Wilhelmina Lahr, who has aided
him most effectively in his great work.
Then the orchestra struck up the finale as the players took their bows, and I thought
as I left the theater that the faculty of Mynderse Academy certainly deserved the
honor which is to be conferred upon them this March by Oxford. I-Iadn't you heard?
Why, fhey're to receive an honorary degree en masse in recognition of the work
they did with the wonderful class of IQBI.

On Friday night, December 16, 1930, the seniors of Mynderse were hosts to over
two hundred guests at their holiday party, the Senior Ball.
On that eventful night, those lucky ones who attended found that the decoration
committee under the direction of William Hamill had more than lived up to the
expectations of the studentsg for the gymnasium had become a regular forest of pines
with Christmasy lights flickering in its depths. Rays of spotlights, shining through
a translucent ceiling ofrainbow hues, added to the colorfulness of the decorations.
On all sides of the gym were rows of Christmas trees, cleverly decorated with strings
of colored lights, tinsel, and ornaments. The orchestra booth from which "Chuck"
Hunter and his "Six Appealers" played was covered with branches of pine and spruce
trees, in and out of which shone colored lights.
Balloons-red, green, and yellow-by the hundred lent their gayety to the scene
until they fell in a colorful and explosive shower toward the end of the party.
Judging by the reactions of our guests it was easily the largest and prettiest party
ever held in the gym.
The patrons and patronesses were Mr. and Mrs. Hubert Mott, Mr. and Mrs. Frank
Vogel, and Miss Julia O'Brien.
The dance committee was as follows:

BY THEIR VOTES YOU SHALL
Senior Spring Elections are over! No, we don't mean their presidential campaign,
we mean that the class has spoken on another subject, the personnel of 193 1, touching
on such importantpoints as their most representative types and their "favorites"
Notable among those chosen were the athletes honored, and physical education was
voted the favorite subject. Of course the uncharitable may remark'that the latter
was an obvious choice, for various reasons, but chiefly because it carries with it no
penalties in the form of home work. But admitting that this may be so doesn't change
the fact that 1931 is athletically inclined. just consider the results.
Romayne Soper, member of the senior basketball team, was chosen as the most
"debonnaire,' ' William Hamill, class president, manager of the MYNDERSIAN, football
and basketball player, was picked as the "most likely to succeed" as well as the
"best executive." To Herbert Yells went the honor of being the "handsomest."
Herbie has played on both basketball and football teams.
Ethel Hayes, our vivacious, red-haired basketball center, was the senior's choice
as the "liveliest," while Bud Miller, manager of basketball and a baseball man, was
termed the "luckiest." Lavergne Brown was dubbed the "most pessimistic," but
then Lavergne doesn't go in for the cheering experiences attendant on participating
Bill Hamill, 1930 football captain, was selected as having "done the most for
Mynderse," and Samuel Cukell was named the "most sensible of the class." The
seniors chose Catherine Fyfe, petite basketball forward, and Leo Guisti, football,
basketball, and baseball star, as the "most popular" of the class group, Ethel Hayes
and Leo Giusti as the "best athletes," and Catherihe Fyfe and Bill Hamill as the
"best all around" students.
Physical Education, as we said before, took the lead as the "favorite subject," and
Miss O'Brien, our senior faculty adviser, was voted our "favorite teacher." If letters
were given for attendance at school games, Miss O'Brien would certainly earn one.
To continue our list of "favorites," we found that the lowly Ford still had loyal
supporters Cor rather, passengersD, and, after all, why not, since we owe so many
good times at games to it? The choice of favorite actress veered away from the
athletic when the decorative Norma Shearer was elected, but came back again to the
old way with the selection of Richard Dix, a decidedly energetic and virile sort of
When it came to reading matter, the seniors showed very good taste. The New York
Timer was considered the best newspaper, and the American, the best magazine. As
for the author, no one can dispute that Richard Haliburton, mountain-climber and
adventurer, is a representative choice for a class which is so definitely athletic in its

Miss O'Brien is a person of
charm, whom you can trust, loyal,
unselfish, always helpful, with a
keen and kindly sense of humor.

Catherine is one of the few who

them. She is a good student,

nature which possesses ingenuity,
steadfastness of purpose, and a

share. This explains why she is
enthroned in Mynderse hearts.

man-thoughtful, kind, sports-
manlike, who is deservedly popu-

serve the best interests of Myn-

Bill Hamill says his sort of
genius consists of more "perspira-
tion" than "inspiration," The
faculty would rend anyone who
suggested that he'does not make
a "hit" with them in basketball.
Because of Bill's good-humor, and
flawlessness, we have canonized
him to a remarkable degree.

A SENIOR'S DIARY
September 4-Well, Diary, here we are, closing the Book of Summer and opening
the Book of Autumn, or, as we might call it, Schooldays. You know I really don't
mind going back this time at all. I'm a privileged senior.
September 2.5-The teachers had their first party tonight. I've often wondered
what they do. Memo: look up material on customs and habits of teachers on the loose.
September 2.7-Played Camillus at Camillus: first football game of 1930. From all
accounts, we have a great team.
At our Hrst class meeting today we elected Bill Hamill, president, and Miss O'Brien,
class adviser. Our colors are purple and gold.
October 9-Well, Diary, if I do say it, the seniors certianly gave other hosts in
Mynderse something to look up to and strive for in our tea dance. Everything went
off so smoothly that we forgot the heartaches of trying to give a tea in the gym, and
fairly glowed at the kind remarks of our guests. Miss O'Brien and the class ofhcers
with Catherine Fyfe received, and many of the rest of us served. Perhaps our main
contribution to Mynderse may be our reforming influences, after all, though some
doubt has been expressed as to that.
October 17-Public speaking has begun again, and the open smiles which used to
greet Miss Hathaway when she approached a senior have given way to furtive glances
and much dodging. But its useless to try to stave off fate.
October 2.4-The juniors gave a school party tonight, a masquerade. I never laughed
so hard as when I discovered that the dignified white-haired lady dressed in black
to whom I had been unusually polite all evening under the impression that she was
Miss Vreeland, was Dorothy Bailey. She certainly deserved the first prize she got.
So did Bill Hamill, one of the toughest-looking tramps I've ever seen.
October 30-A real treat in assembly this morning, Mr. George Morse, curator of
the Boston zoo. He talked as entertainingly about animals as a man naturally would
who had cared for them so many years.
November 1-Red-letter Day, Diary! We defeated Waterloo, 14-o. The crowd was
enormous, and the cheering fairly punctured your ears. We had a wonderful snake-
dance all through the town.
November 3-Senior Play, "It Won't Be Long Now," is in rehearsal. We're giving
the play two nights, with a different cast each night. It's going to be fun comparing
the technique of David Fegley and Bud Miller as leading men, and seeing whether
Lulu Kinnetz or Frances Dyson acts the more kittenish.
November 6-7-Our senior play had good houses both nights. Both casts were so
good that comparisons would be futile.
November 7.6-Thanksgiving holidays are here again, and judging from all ac-
counts, the dinners were perfectly satisfactory.
December 19-We beat Canandaigua, our fast league opponent tonight in basket-
ball. What a game! Oh yes, we went on holiday, and the grand exodus of teachers

S each new Staff undertakes the planning
of a Year Book it is confronted with
- the same old problems which have per-
plexed the workers of previous years.
And yet, to each new Staff these planning and
production problems are all new and ordinarily
must be solved without the benefit of the ex-
perience of those who have solved the same
problems in the past.
Much of this grief is avoided when the Staff
works with The Du Bois Press. Out of our
wealth of experience in building Year Books
we have formulated certain well defined stand-
ards of procedure for the guidance of each new
To enjoy the full benefit of our Creative Service we rec-
ommend a Hpreliminary conference between the members
of the Sta and the Manager of our Year Book Depart-
ment. This preliminary conference should be arranged
at as early a date as possible and does not incur any
obligation ..... Our "idea" or planning department
has created many out-standing and prize-winning Year
Books ..... May we be of service to you?

Many young people start on a

THEY hope to be well off some
day, but just how it will happen
they do not know.
SOME of them make real pro-

seem to get ahead financially.
THE REASON is they increase

THOSE who consider the
class room as dull, who
think of school in terms of
theories and impractical prob-
