Those who have had a peek behind the backdrop of this "drama-in-print" realize to some minute degree the quantities of aspirin and other headache remedies which have been consumed by the Board of Publication. Yet, even they have not known the times when we have lain sleepless. uidea-less" and utterly fatigued. However, thinking of you, and your expectations of us, we have aroused ourselves and picked up our quills, written a few lines of immortal prose, then quietly returned to the land of Somnus. One might think we had composed a work of the size and strength of Polyphemusg one with the immortality of Shakespeare, the style of lflaubert, and the volcanic descriptive qualities of Thomas Wolfe. But to be very truthful, fellow classmates, we have sought only to be honest: if there were those among you destined to write their names in sidereal brightness, we have said sog if there were those who will fill a small but indispensable part of our world, we have dwelt upon personality, not greatness. ln short, we have tried to bring to light all the best-loved and most easily recognized traits in each of you. We hope we have done you justice.f'l'he Editors. 7- -3 My ne. page, I A 0 . , f I, n V w N H H W x x.,.'

"Lukey" November 7, 1922 ' "A man elect of men" "Lukey" is very ambitious, and one of the most popular boys in his class. He is a very hard worker, for instance, he will claim he knows nothing of the daily work, but he always manages to come through with a good mark. "Luke" has held several offices in his three years at N. B. H. S. At present he is president of the Amphion Club, president of his class, and a captain of one of the Bowling teams. So good luck to a fine fellow! President of the Mid-Year Class of 1941, President of Amphion Club, Young Men's League, Bowling Club, DeMolay VIRGINIA SCRIPTURE Hartford, Conn. "Ginnie" June 7, 1922 "The light of love, the purity of grace, The mind. the music breathing from her face." "Ginnie" is that good looking dark-haired girl with the glowing personality who is seen rushing through the halls. She is always bub- bling over with enthusiasm, usually about a Yale week-end or a Winter Carnival. Her lovely soprano voice, which is the result of five years of study, proves her life has not been all play. She plans on entering the Julius Hart School of Music upon graduation. Musical Club, Amphion Club, Girls' League, Senior Girl Adviser, Usher, junior College Club, Vice-President of Class: Prom Committee GLADYS REYNOLDS ELY New Britain, Conn. "Gladdy" january 31, 1923 "Laugh, if you're wise" "Gladdy" is one of our rare personalities. She is zz diligent worker, a lover ol studies, and therefore, a reaper of honors. "Gladdy" has an unusual Hair for Latin and for writing poetry. Not to go unmentioned is her extraordinary sense of humor which she displays at all times. Her immediate plan for the future is to attend Smith College. lt is needless to say that "Gladdy" will succeed in the field of her choice. Secretary of the Mid-Year Class of 1941, Ski Club: Poetry Club, Girls' League, Amphion Club, Banquet Committee: Junior College Cltlgae, National Honor Society, Senior Girl Adviser, Press Club: Editor of ehive. WALTER RAY FLETCHER, JR. New Britain, Conn. "Tabby" May 11, 1922 "Men of light and leading" "Tubby's" exuberance must come from a never-ending source, for we've yet to see this good-looking chap without his smile and vitality. Can you imagine such a happy man as a dentist? Well, that's been his ambition for a long time. No doubt his pleasantness will make us forget any aching teeth. We hope so! "Tubby" has been one of the most active students in high school. His performance in the Class Night Play will always be remembered by our class, and so will his performances on the gridiron. We can only predict success in capital letters for this congenial young man. Treasurer of the Mid-Year Class of 1941: Football '38, '39, '40, Young Men's League, Class Night Play, Prom Committee MARION DOROTHY ABRAMS New Britain, Conn. "Dot" August 9, 1922 "Music is well said to be the speech of angels" Shyness and efficiency are qualities that one notices Hrst in Marion. Silence is ever golden, Marion, and your efficiency will bring you success in your future work as a stenographer. Music, especially the piano, is her chief hobby and relaxation.

The choicest one, of course, is Agnes Halloran and the harmony of their friendship rivals that of two people approach- ing their golden wedding anniversary. Clothes seem to be her dominant interest, proved by the fact that she always appears in the latest style. May you always keep your pleasant nature. junior College Club, Girls' League Representative, Senior Girl Adviser, Banquet Committee, Secretary of Class X2, Xl? ANDRE ASHBY ARCAND, JR. Waterbury, Conn. "Andy" December 2, 1922 "A man is known by his friends" That tall lanky personage one sees ambling through the halls of our noble institution, seemingly without a care in the world and who answers to that movie star-like name of Andre Arcand, is recognized by eminent authorities as an expert on that difficult theory of how to accomplish the most with the least effort. This appearance is completely deceiving. Under this nonchalant devil-may-care attitude, one uncovers intelligence, ability, ambition and savoir faire, with which we feel "Andy" can't help but succeed in his chosen held of chemistry. Laboratory Assistant, Chemistry Club, Chairman of Photo Com- mittee MARGARET MASON BAILEY New Britain, Conn. April 25, 1923 "Mode.sty sister Lo justice" "Maggie" or Margaret means a worker skilled in accuracy and a woman steeped in gentleness. But wait! Her red hair gives indication of a spirit of fun lurking there too! Studies are ever hrst in her mind, but sports and other activities fill her "in between hours." 'l hey must be well spent too, for we know her excellent sense of thrift. Best luck for the future. National Honor Society, Senior Girl Adviser, Girls' League Rep- resentative ARTHUR HERMAN ARENDT New Britain, Conn. 'ACurly" November l3, 1922 "O, Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou, Romeo?" "Curly's" been labeled a ladies' man and we hear that when he casts those eyes toward the opposite sex and adds a smile, they're completely under his power. "Curly" makes a good "pal" and we'll certainly miss his little fingers which do such big things on the piano. The business field is to claim him. All his friends join with us in wishing him great success for those years to come. Glee Club, Civic Forum MABEL LOUISE BALCH Bristol, Conn. "Mabe" August 15, 1922 "I hasten to laugh al everything" If you hear "say now" or a joyous burst of laughter you can be sure it's "Mabe" coming. Because of her entrancing ways, she has had everybody from bell hops to football players trailing her footsteps. Although she is active in extra-curricular activities, she never neglects her studies. Her favorite subject? Art. Her ambition? "Say now." Girls' League PM I6 1047- pne- .,i?fxj A if N is aa ti S :f ' JL' .Y if ' i i . . Q " X V, x ,X 61211 llillk 4 FRED ASHWORTH, JR. Chadclerton, England "Freddie" February 22, l92l "Laughter holding both his sides" i'l:reddie," the crooning tool and die maker, is always singing his troubles away. His friends seldom see him with a frown, for his philo- sophy is that there is something always worthwhile in all life's under- takings. One of his pet ambitions is to be a celebrity, whether he be a thespian or an interpreter of the terpsichorean art' , 'Lil n'y a pas de quoif' May he realize his ambitions. Baseball l939, Softball 19403 N. B. S. T. S. A, A. LOUISE ELIZABETH BERRY Hartford, Conn. "Louie" December 23, l922 "A quiet spirit" "Looie's" soul must be tinged with modesty and thus her keen wit has not been given its due by all. However, those who know her have appreciated her sense of humor to the fullest extent. This excellent quality should help bring success. Girls' League, Vice-President of Bowling Club, Senior League Adviser JOHN PETER BABA New Britain, Conn. Hack" September 6, 1922 'A Nou' Hercules be thy speed, young man" "Jack" while here at our noble institution has lent his prowess to the track team and you ought to see his smoke when traveling around that dirt ring! We're going to be hearing more of him, were thinking, so we offer every kind of success in his industrial future. Track Team: Young Mens League ALBINA BOKAN New Britain, Conn. "Minnie" October 5, 1922 "To business we love we rise betime And go In 't with delight," Fortunate will be the businessman who receives Albina's services as a bookkeeper. She has proved herself quite able in this held by receiving general honors in the subject. We are certain that wherever her talents may lead her she will be successful. Girls' League JOHN NAPLE BADOLATO New Britain, Conn. 'ljohnnyn November 8, 1921 "At the games end we shall see who gains" "Johnny" is one of those rare persons who is able to indulge in almost every sport yet manage to Gnd time to excel in his studies. A quiet individual, he is somewhat shy when it comes to "wimmen," but this, we know, will not hinder him in his chosen field of business. Baseball, Basketball g Football MQ? na.

Senior Girl Adviser: Girls' League: Civic Forum RUSSELL WESTERGREN New Britain, Conn. "Russ" May 10, 1923 "The mildest manners with the bravest mind" "Russ" is a good natured, well mannered lad, whose chief ambition is to amass a small fortune and retire. He makes a "swell" friend but seems to 'shy off" the girls. Why? just one of lifes mysteries. We'll probably be hearing more of you later, so good luck until then!

"Peggy" is alert and will fit in with her career as telephone operator!

"Wedgie" january 17, 1923 "Seeing only what is fair, Sipping what is sweet" "Geil" is a person who has a smile for everyone. Because of this, she has made many friends here in school, and we know she'll make more in the remainder of her life. Her ambition is to join the ranks of such stars as "Lily Ponsu and "Grace Moore."

"Ceil" january 5, 1923 "The noblest mind the best contentment has" "Ceil" appears to be the quiet type, but those who know her be- lieve differently. She is a good sport, full of fun and wit, and makes her friendship valued by all who know her. "Cei1's" favorite pastime is dancing. Her ready laugh is very contagious. We sincerely wish her every bit of success in carrying on the work she will undertake. Girls' League img- ana. asm xlt X ii A. iff" ,V ., . f ' XX Q A l i - i A of N is H S ,f NL!

The corridors wou1dn't be the same without the "Rustic" of Naugh- ton, thus we take pity on the faculty and leave without him. 18.

QQ iilwiiis Mid-Year Class Prophecy TREAMING through the venetian blind on the window, the sun plays on the papers on the desk where Cedric Powers, jr., president of the "Elite Starling Department Store," is sitting. Raising his voice he calls to his office boy Walter Leavitt, who is reading Virgil in the corner, Leavitt is then asked to summon the other executives. They file in-Vice-president Russell Naughton, treasurer Howard Smith, and secretary Raymond Leonard, who all fervently believe in the five year plan. Cora May Whipple, Mr. Power's secretary, automatically takes her place and begins taking notes. The president calls for order and starts to take up the business at hand. lt seems that plans for some big ball or other are under way. Before he has an opportunity to really begin he hears the buzzer from his outer office in which are seated his three gum chewing telephone operators, Beverly Conn, Ruth Porter, and Isabelle Statchen. Miss Conn in a sing-song voice announces that the three goldfish pond salesmen, Merwin Wenz, Frank Raimondi, and Robert Cadrain have just arrived. With an authoritative twist of the little finger Mr. Powers asks them to wait and commences with his plans. First of all there is to be a banquet. This will be under the direction of the famous French Chef, Andre Arcand. He is coming with his entire staff from his chief cook and bottle washer, Raymond Lanza to his attractive cigarette girl, Gladys Ely. He is also bringing along his four singing waitresses, Laura Hotchkiss, Virginia Scripture, Betty Crum and Barbara Shurburg. The buzzer is heard again and Miss Statchen announces that there is a great deal of confusion in the outer office, for the first vice-president in charge of sweeping, ,lack McCarthy, and the second vice-president, .Ioe Garino, are having a terrific argument over the scientific problem as to whether they should sweep first and dust afterward or dust first and sweep afterward. Mr. Powers dismisses this annoyance with, "Have them see Jurgen, my lawyer." He continues. "Now let me see, where were we before we were inter- rupted. Oh, yes! For music at our Starling Ball we are really out doing our- selves. We are to have not one but two bands. One at each end of the room. There will be Eddie Diementes 'all girl orchestraf featuring Agnes Halloran and june Allen at the twin pianos, and Leona Horwitz as the Vocalist. Among the famous women in his band are Celia Martinelli at the tuba, Florence Schena with her singing flute and Florence Cherniak at the harp. The other band will be 'Uncle Happy' Giedraitis' Rumba Band with Francine Green- stein as the famous 'Bumps-a-Daisy' girl. His band includes no less famous people than Rudolph Ghezzi and his swinging guitar, Walter Smuda with his bass viol and john Lukens who Hips the castenetsf' Before his associates have an opportunity to say a word, in rush three decorators, Walter jabs, Arnold Klukas and Robert Vile. All three with cigars in mouths begin to talk at once, and after much confusion they finally sub- mit their plans and as hurriedly as they arrived, they leave. After this bit of turmoil Mr. Powers and his other executives adjust them- selves in their chairs and the president resumes his plans. Of course no ball is complete without a floorshow so Mr. Powers has chosen the versatile master of ceremonies, Howard Kinkade and his able assistant, Stanley Baylock, to be in charge of the show. For the first number Mr. Kinkade is importing Zulu Norman Holmberg, the famous magician, who with his companion june Lyons, the snake charmer, have traveled the four corners of the earth. After this bit of mysticism jean Burckhardt and her acrobatic quintet have been hired to display a bit of feminine pulchritude. Her quintet includes Sanam Peters, Sophie Gianninoto, Gloria Lanza, Helen Mahalio and Esther Man- N X I I I 1 71 l 'iff N B ll-ll S it D' wilixii ff gone. After the acrobats have finished Mr. Baylock will humorously announce the next act which can be classified as a Novelty Dance. It will be a foursome doing a jitterbug number on roller skates. The foursome will consist of Louise Berry, Roland Casperson, Irene Gierymski and john Carlin. To conclude the program and end it with a certain smooth quality Mr. Kinkade has secured with some difficulty, the waltz team of Margery jones and Frank Conlon. However the team has of late changed its name from "jones and Conlon" to "Conlon and Conlon." Dismissing his committee Mr. Powers starts on his daily tour of the Store. He is greeted everywhere by cheery smiles and nods. Beginning in the stock room he meets his stock boys, jack Rivers, john Conlin and joe Field, who are busy checking and opening the new merchandise. Getting into the elevator he explains the new bonus to Eleanor Larson, very charming in her maroon and gold uniform. She had been under the impression that the bonus was a new dish in the cafeteria. Reaching the main floor he goes to the stationery department and converses momentarily with the two clerks, Ruth Gustafson and Margaret Kern. From there he travels on to the sporting department where he discusses the sudden demand for the new "Fool Proof Skis," designed by Richard Rabinowitz with Richard Pajewski. Mr. Powers is now summoned to the Leather Goods Dept. to watch Walter Stevens applying his well known oil to the boots and saddles. Piercing cries attract his attention to the nursery where Nilo Fachini, Walter Fletcher, john Kwasowski and joe Sideranko are trying to quiet some babies while their mothers are shopping elsewhere in the store. As he wanders through the gift department, he chats with jean jobert and Dorothy jakobowski who are excitedly examining a new automatic lipstick applier produced by that well known make-up artist Shirley Hall. As he sits in the shoe black chair to have his shine restored, Mr. Powers re- laxes as he listens to the singing shoe black Rosario Garafalo. He stops at the cashier's office to get the financial statement of the previous day and Finds Peggy Grobstein excitedly reading a letter from a publisher saying that they have accepted her book "How to Change Bashful Boys" dedicated to her husband john McCabe. Cn the opposite side of the store Mr. Powers spends quite a bit of time examining the display in the beauty salon. His attention is attracted by a burst of laughter and as he turns to investigate he sees the head of the dept. Barbara Crusberg bearing down on him with a beaming smile and with her, the three gaily laughing globe trotters, Betty Humphreys, Barbara Suess and Agatha Fritz. Anxious to hear about their recent travels, he escorts them to his office. There comfortably seated they chat about their experiences. In London they ran across john Lindsay who is war correspondent for the "Red and Gold Review." Eunice Levine is exchange professor of Latin at Eton, At the famous Covent Gardens the girls saw Bernice Rebillard in her famous play "The Tragedy of the Footlightsf' In Madrid the girls were lucky to get front seats at a bull fight where they saw those famous matadors Yale Fendell and Charlie Pruzansky still throwing the bull, ln Switzerland they were fortunate to see Harold Slater break the world's record for distance jumping on skis. They also reported having seen Wally Travers, the third baseman, bring in the winning run for the Yankees. This pleasant chat however is brought to a close when the girls suddenly remembered a dinner engagement with no lesser celebrity than jimmy Stewart. As the doors close behind them, Mr. Powers leisurely lifts his eyes to the top of the desk, leans back comfortably in his chair, closes his eyes and once more in memory is back in those well remembered halls with his classmates one and all. j UNE ALLEN AGNES HALLORAN EUNICE LEVINE QQHZZ- ,- .71-. .

"Mar e" makes friends easily and more important, keeps them. Many ljew Britain fellows have tried to make an impression on her, but her in- terest centers in Manchester and Hartford. Although "Marge" has been adorning the desk at the East Street Branch Library for the past two years, she intends to go into nursing.

Our charming young secretary has been popular and energetic during her three years at High School. Although she takes her studies quite seriously, Ann has an amazing capacity for fun, and always joins into the spirit of things. lf her past record is any indication of the future, we know she'll come out one of the tops ofthe top.

Ahh' I D A-A .-A if N B 3,1 'il H S fi ?' L X J lx I url: N Milt lune Class Prophecy ERE I AM TWO DAYS before graduation and still owing three units in Math. With a shrug I resign myself to my fate and despondently go to bed. Slowly a mumble jumble of algebraic expressions appear before my eyes. They seem to leer at me in defiance. Then all at once out of this mass of confusion I see the numbers l-9-5-I and to my unutterable astonishment I find myself living in the year 1951. After recovering from my terrifying experience, I look around and End myself in the old home town. Suddenly I'm staggered by a resounding smack on the back. Next I hear, 'iYes Sir, yes sir, vote for the right man." The "right man" happens to be none other than Cerard Wholey, the big political boss. I-Ie recognizes me and quickly puts the proferred cigar back in his pocket. Continuing my trip through the now great metropolis of New Britain I bump into julie Nemrod, now working as secretary to Edward Sobuta, the Mayor. I-Iis I-Ionor informs me that he was elected because he managed to kiss the right babies. julie tells me that stumblefoot Elsie jugo is working in D. 82 Ls. Sure enough I found her, and guess where? In the knitting alcove. Yes, 'lStinkie" Warren Kingsbury, sym-phony conductor is there too, On the way out I see Ruth Lawrence trying to buy some sour smelling perfume from a corps of be- wildered salesgirls, including Eva Bylek, Margaret Cholakian, Margaret Street and Alice Lombardi. They all snap to attention when store-manager, Irving Citlitz, ap- proaches with TI-IE Mrs. Moatmorency Vandersnipe. I stare at her in awe and ad- miration but I'll be hanged if she doesn't resemble Maude Critzmacher. When she says "I-Ii ya Kid," then I know she is our own Maude. She invites me to any one of her three mansions on Fifth Avenue in New York and leaves. I quickly follow in her foot- steps, when I see I-Ienryjazwinski, the floor-walker, eyeing me suspiciously. Out on the street again, I become entangled in the crowds gathered to watch some big parade. Say, isn't that Commander Bernabucci at the head? It must be, because atop the Civil War Monument I spy Mary Delaneys bobbing brown curls. Could that be a rolling pin she has with her? Also in the parade are Bill Moriarty and George Pearson, buglers, and drummers, Ray Tinti and Elliot Paddock and of all things! theres Bob Frederickson bringing up the rear with his "hot fiddle." My footsteps now lead toward the Strand Theatre where I discover that the Walsh sisters, jane and Patsy, top the days billing. The little gal in the box office proves to be none other than Barbara I-Iancock, drawing the customers with those same dimples, Helping her was Dot Bishop, who wrinkles up her pert little nose when her boss Ned Schade walks by accompanied by head Usher Louis Errede. My attention is brought to the elaborate signs adorning the surrounding buildings which reveal that many of our other classmates have made good. I see "Faye's," owned and operated by I-Ielen Faye Alpress with Betty Brierley as her assistant and Marie McMahon as head model. Other signs advertise "Fuzzys Spaghetti Palace," run by Lena Fazzina, "Eat With Alaine and Never Complain," operated by Alaine Floros, "I-Ioffmans Swanko Store," with Marvin Hoffman as proprietor, and "Hil- bies Hot House," run by Marie I-Iilbie. A super Buick almost mows me down and as it comes to a screeching stop I recog- nize Charles I-Iickey and Bob Kerin, publisher and City-Editor of the "Herald," and jack Ross still running. I dubiously accept their invitation to dinner Cnothing over a quarterb at Rogers where I find Barbara Cowles has taken over her paters business. Upon entering I see Marjorie Skene, Frances Coogel and Catherine Forcash, local teachers, and whats this?-that eminent surgeon Ceorge Bray and his very capable assistant Margery Van Valkenburgh. "Doc" Bray invites me to inspect his new hospital and staff fespecially his staffj. Arriving at the hospital I first take a peek into the childrens ward and observe Mary McGrath, Ginny Thompson, and Delia Palleschi wrestling with a ten pound baby boy. S'funny, I always thought they could handle their men. Theres Mary Connors walking toward the operating room, and theres Ruth Anderson, and Margaret Connor and Ann Romanchuck and Eleanor Wojtusik, why! 12 1 ti- Q fir N B I is 1,7 ll'll S 'zfi' I viii f I XX all the nurses are hurrying to the operating room! I ask interne Leo Sullivan, what the occasion is and he tells me that they're operating on Sebbi Bucheri and all the girls want to see the hair on his chest. Well, thats too much for me and concluding that I need a change I decide to go to the bright lights and gay nights of New York. Taxi- driver Robert Apelgren takes me to the airport in no time at all. Climbing aboard the plane I discover Noreene Lawson as Stewardess and guess who as pilot? Thats right, "Ace" joe Witkin. Traveling on the same plane are business executives Walter Law- rence and Walter Negro, head of Amalgamated Garden Tools, Inc. Noreene tells me that scientists james Clerkin and Donald Cohen, and Statesman john Kawecki were passengers recently. Arriving in New York I learned that Mayor La Guardia, in order to devote more of his time to chasing fire engines, has resigned and Angelo Buccini is now Mayor. Bidding farewell to my companions I strike out for "Old Broadway" and the first thing that strikes my eye is a big neon sign proclaiming to all the city that Stephen Tyrone Florie is now appearing in the "Grapes of Bath." I head for Radio City and on the way in I meet jo Savoca, the script-writer, Fred Sherman the orator, Kathleen Kenure the dramatist and Frances Phipps, the famous newspaper woman. In the main studio I see Alex "Winchell" Bayer broadcasting the latest news and gossip. I can stay only for a moment because I want to see producer Gerald Cold- berg's latest production "Love Conquers All", starring those two romantic actors, Pauline Mariotti and Donald Richter. In the theatre I see the Vice-President of the United States, john "Silent" Fuller accompanied by Congressman Ceorge Zenobi and a bevy of blondesg also Milton Knowles and Patsy Mazzerella, the two baseball stars. After the movie I go to a smart supper club that advertises Hugh Millers band with Herman Dressel featured as drummer extraordinary. Also in the band are Anthony Chioda, Francis Dorsey and john Margosian. I am ably served by Marita Sullivan. Midway between the first and second courses I hear a very familiar voice singing an even more familiar tune. Head waiter, Thomas Bordonaro explains that the famous girl vocalist Lu Paulson is now singing the number one hit of the nation, "Amapola." Somehow after that I lose my appetite and turn my attention to the fioor show which Stars Bob Rackliffe as master of ceremonies. Yes, Bob is still getting laughs with those same old jokes. His guests tonight are the tennis stars Helen Fagan and Kenneth "backhand" Erickson and there, lurking menacingly in the background is their manager, Archie Hoffman. Noticing that an air of expectation and tension prevails I ask the head waiter what the occasion is and he informs me that they are awaiting the arrival of the "First Lady of the Land." When she does arrive I am amazed to find that she is none other than Ann Morrissey. Her husband, the President of the United States is .... "what?" ......"what's that Mom?". . . . ."I've been asleep7". . . . ."Oh". . . . .With a sigh I reluctantly turn my back on the glorious future and return to the humble present and, my unfinished Math.

For the second semester, Donald Richter was chosen President, Jacqueline Bradley, Secretary and Peter Wallack, Treasurer. Two plays were presented during the year "China Boy" on December 6, 1940, and "A Howling Success" on March 21, 1941. These were three-act comedies and proved highly popular and successful. On May 29 a program was arranged and given by the club in observance of Memorial Day. Friendly relations between dramatic clubs in nearby High Schools have been continued this year, and the club attended broadcasts of the Guy Hedlund Players at WTIC station. The club closed its year onjune 6, with a picnic at Lake Compounce. The student body has been unusually fine in their cooperation, so thus we have been able to get a nest egg started towards a fund for either new painting on our present scenery, or even better, a really new set. With the continued support of the students and faculty we hope to have this by another year. We are also planning to do more towards auditorium programs next year and thus encourage more student partici- patron. Our sincere thanks are extended to Mr. Mirliani and his orchestra, and to Miss jennie Ollson and her art classes for their valuable assistance on our programs and to Mr. Catlin for handling our ticket sale. To Mrs. Guilford for -her never-failing en- thusiasm and direction we cannot be too grateful.

In keeping with this aim the only requisites for membership are the spirit of cooperation and the desire to learn more about chemistry. Organized only three years ago by Mr. Chase, Head of the Science Department, and a few interested students, the Club has grown steadily and its membership has reached the limit of accommodations in the laboratory. The sponsor, Mr. Rio, has gone to great lengths to assure the greatest possible benefits for the members. In this regard, the Progressive Chemistry Club early in its existence became a member club in the American Institute Science and Engineering Clubs, holding Charter Number 313. Membership in this nation-wide institute assures the Chemistry Club of news of the latest developments in science, the activities of other High School Science Clubs, and subscription to the "Science Observer" publication of the American Institute. Noteworthy among the activities during thc past year were trips to the Filtration Plant, Sanitation Plant and the Stanley Chemical Company. The laboratory meetings were profitable to all members, oustanding projects being preparation and study of inks, qualitive analysis of solutions and study of pigments and paints. Individual ex- periments and demonstrations were performed by all members and motion pictures were shown on various chemical subjects.
