.n time. which steals our years away,
Shall steal our pleasures too.
The memory of the past will stay,
.Xnd half our joy renew.-Moore.
In this little volume the Editors have tried to record the
incidents and recall the scenes which have made our High School
days so dear. It is necessarily a feeble attemptg but if in after
years what we here have written will set in motion the wheels of
memory, the book will have attained its aim. Maj' the motive
which prompts this effort be the book's apology!
Many happy months have sped since the members of the
Class of IQIO first came to know each other. Together we have
bravely met our dis-appointments and have eagerly enjoyed our
little triumphs. Endearing and enduring associations have, been
formed to adorn our lives.
A new chapter now lies before each one of us, It is largely
in our power to say what remains to be written. Let ns go forth
with brave hearts into the Uncertain Future,-our heritage the
inspiration of noble lives of those who have gone before us.
And now. Godspeed!

As a token of respect and affection and in grateful apprecia-
tion of a life unselfishly devoted to the betterment of the New
Haven High School, this volume is fondly dedicated to Dr. Susan
V Our First Year
"The memory of what has been
And never more will be." E
LASSMATES, I wonder if you thought of the four years
of hard work ahead of you "XYhen as Freshmen Hrst
we came to High ?" Is it not always so? The future
,which holds so much of pleasure, sadness, work, and,
mayhap, strange adventure, is ever uncertain and seems long in
becoming today. It has been well said: "Tomorrow never
comes." Nevertheless, as Seniors now, with our work and pleas-
ure in our High School course nearly at an end, we can each
take a mental birdls-eye view of the past, and ,marvel at the
quick flight of time.
VVell do we remember how very grand and learned we felt
in our anticipation of being High School students, but "pride
goeth before la fall," and the fall was not long in coming. No
sooner had We entered the portals of this Labyrinth of Knowl-
edge, than we immediately realized how small and unimportant
we 'fFreshies" really were. The name of Scrulz, which at tirst
bewildered us, soon turned out to be the least of our troubles.
We smile now as We recall how often we furtively looked behind
doors, for the numbers of our different recitation rooms, and
how for many weeks, one of our chief aims was to try not to
appear as strange and out of place as We felt.
:The first social event of school life was the teas for the
Freshman girls, making the many newcomers more acquainted
among the upper class as well as in their own class.

But the connecting link for the Scrub felllows was undoubted-
ly the Athletic Association. This bond not only furthered school
spirit, of which we had .heard so much, but strengthened class
spirit as well and also helped to gain honor for the school.
Then came the Red Letter Day when we read with palpitat-
ing hearts our First Report-to see how our hard efforts h-ad
been rewarded. Happy were we if we had done well, but if our
hopes had met with poor results, we still were brave and pushed
on toward a next time with stronger hopes and harder work.
All through the tirstyear we learned of customs and events,
new and full of interest, the system of recitations, the marking
and home study were so new that, although we soon settled down
and the First glamor eventually wore off, we were some' time in
becoming adjustedg and each succeeding day brought with it
some revelation aside from the text of our books. In fact, from
beginning to end of our school work and play this year was one
of continual unfolding.
But we were happy, and at the end of the year, even though
we were elated at being Sophomores and could hold our heads
high over the incoming Freshie, not a few felt regret that never
again would we be Freshmen at Highg but instead must take our
place with the older, experienced ones from whom so much was
expected in the way of scholarship and dignity. So We tried to
remember all that we h-ad learned in books and out of books, dur-
ing our first year, and we must have succeeded in it-else this
tale would never have been told.

Y DE.-XR Classmates. Return with me in memory to that
year of fun and comfort, the Sophomore year. How
glad we were to return to the school, which We began
to speak of with endearing tones, after that first long
vacation. There was another reason. It was to annoy the
Scrubs. We considered it our duty as Sophomores. That duty
we kept, and with interest. '
The football team that year was fairly successful, winning
several difficult games. The Middletown game was exceptionally
so. we Winning by the score of 6 to 5. In the other athletic de-
partments, basketball and baseball, the school was also successful,
winning and losing about the same number of games.
But the class teams cannot be forgotten. Capt. Farrington
of the Sophomore basketball team played through a very success-
ful season, winning the championship. We lost the baseball
championship, but can anyone deny, that if was -one of the best
,teams presented in several years. To be sure, We lost the decid-
ing game to t-he Seniors, by a score of I to O. but it was a Won-
derful team we played against.
Teas appeared to be popular that year. The B. T.-. Phi
Sigma, Alpha Alpha Sorority, and Kappa Mu Sigma each giving
one. Vtiere you present at any of these, or at any of the follow-
ing dances given that year? Theta Rho, Theta Sigma, Alpha

HO of the Class of 1910 does not remember how proud
he felt to be an upper classman, a junior, when he
came back to old Xew Haven High on that September
morning in 1908? And who did not look forward
to the pleasure which comes to an upper classman? This junior
class was the largest that had ever entered New llaven High
School, and what hopes of its prominence and success did its
members not entertain?
The first excitement among us was felt chieldy by the tuition

passed a vote putting all tuition people out of school? tThat
Freshman class of 1912 was altogether too large for our com-
fort ll But the main excitement died away when word came that
out-of-town people would be allowed to finish the year IQOQ, but
could not come back in the fall. Still the suhurbanites dreaded
having to leave just when they were becoming Seniors: but there
was hope that the vote might be rescinded, which happenezl later
in the year.
Soon invitations for the B. T.- tea appeared. That affair
was a novelty in that the hostesses wore Colonial costumes. The
Alpha Alpha, Phi Sigma. and Kappa Mu Sigma teas which fol-
lowed were all well attended and greatly enjoyed.
The Hrst affair in which the class took part was the junior
Fair. Cf course, we were going to have the best fair that any
junior Class in New Haven High School had ever held. And it
certainly was a success, for didn't that Dutch Fair net us over
two hundred and fifty dollars! That surely was going far ahead
of our predecessors. Z

ln january, as usual, the Radiator gave its annual play and
dance. Theta Sigma followed with its usual good time. Next,
the Focus League -made a new departure by giving their first
annual entertainment and dance. 1
Then came the entertainment given by the Athletic Associa-
tion to strengthen its treasury, because tthough we write it with
shamej, there were not enough of the loyal anzl school-spirited
to join it and pay their small dues, or to go to the games. The
entertainment consisted of music by an octette from the Yale
Glee Club. and a one-act farce entitled "My Lord in Livery,7' by
members of the Association. The affair was a great success.
One Monday morning early in the spring, Dr. Cushing re-
quested the Juniors to remain in the Auditorium for a few mo-
ments, and we then found out that it was about time for the
Junior class to organize itself. Not long after that we assembled
in the Science Lecture Hall one noon, and when we came out
we were au. organized body. Perhaps we didn't feel a little
bigger than when we went in!
In May the Crescent gave its entertainment and dance.
There were musical numbers, and the Crescent Dramatic Club
presented a farce entitled "An Affair of the Heart," which was
very well given.
All through the year the boys had been active in athletics,
and as usual had been successful and had made a good showing
for old New Haven.
June of IQOQ saw over three hundred of us loath to close
a happy year, yet eager to assume the dignities of the honored
Senior class of New Haven High.

T LAST-Seniors. September, IQOQ, found us on the
last lap, of the race. XYhat it meant to us who had
patiently struggled to the top through three years of
obstacles, may be easily realized. Proudly did we greet
old friends, and a feeling of brotherly love actuated us as we
shook the hands of classmates so dear and true. The conscious-
ness that we were on the last rung of the ladder thrilled us, and
once more we buckled down to a rather difficult, yet pleasant,
Three changes in the curriculum of school affairs greeted us
in our Senior year. Two of our most prominent instructors, Mr.
Kirschner and Mr. Hackett, left us, the first temporarily, and the
second permanently. The third change was the transferring of
Freshman studies' to an afternoon class, -which move very suc-
cessfully accommodated both upper and under-classmen.
XVe were hardlly settled down to study when a call came for
football timber. The teamithat represented the High School in
the fall of I9o9 was quite successful, and won ,several hard games.
But it was greatly handicapped by the loss of two of its best
players. Saxe and Frankel. Nevertheless, the team had the sup-
port and co-operation of the students, and encouraged, it beat
several opponents by handsome scores.
Thanksgiving, which, by the way, was marked by the gen-
erosity of the students in donating for the poor, was celebrated
by an entertainment in the Auditorium which consisted of selec-
tions by the High School orchestra, views of London and cuts
illustrating the story of "The Pied Piper of Hamlinf, and the
narrative by Miss Dustin.
12 NEW HAVEN HIGH SCHOOL CLASS BOOK
On December 5 the Class of 1911 presented its Colonial Fair.
To say the least, it was an immense success, and it is needless to
say that we Seniors helped to make it such. That may be under-
About two Weeks later, the celebration of the Fiftieth Anni-
versary of the High School took place. Young and old graduates
of the school met in a happy reunion. The celebration consisted
of songs, music and speeches by celebrated graduates, a history
of the school by Dr. Sheridang reunions of the different classes
that had graduated, and refreshments. The haflls and the Audi-
torium were the scenes of beautiful decorations, and everybody
enjoyed a superb time.
The Senior elections came soon after. Owing to the di-
vision of Hillhouse interests, its candidate for president was de-
feated. Boardman won the office of president, but the office of
vice-president, secretary and sergeant-at-arms went to Hillhouse.
All the other officers were re-electedg and the office of treasurer
went to Boardman.
After the Christmas vacation, the basketball and hockey
teams were organized. Qur quintet was very successful, winning
the majority of its games. Its support by the students was fine.
A crowded house of basketball enthusiasts could be .seen every
Saturday night in snug little Anderson's Gym. The hockey team,
on the other hand, was not able to play much, owing to the
On the evening of January 21, the Athletic Association pre-
sented a very successful entertainment in the Auditorium, in order
to raise a much-needed sum. A large number attenedd, in spite
of the rain. The .entertainment consisted chiefly of magic per-
formances by Mr. Gilbert, selections by the High School orches-
tra and a farce. "The Reveries of a Bachelor."
Meanwhile, affairs of social interest were not lacking. On
January 7, the Radiator society gave a fine entertainment. which
consisted of an excellent program of dances, selections by Shu-
bert's orchestra, and a one-act farce "My Turn Next."
The next affairs of social prominence were the Alpha Alpha
and B. T.- teas. given on january 16.
New HAVEN HIGH Scnoor. C'Lixss Book 13
On February 5, Kappa Mu Sigma gave a private dance,
which was a pronounced success. This was followed by the Phi
Sigma tea given on February 12, at which those present had a
Turning to 'athletics, we find that the Senior class won the
class basketball championship under the able leadership of Mr,
Levy. On February 21, our track team journeyed to Hartford
to compete in the Naval Reserve meet against Springfield, Hart-
ford and Holyoke. Although we did not capture Hrst place, we
came in a very good second, having scored seven points to each
of Hartfordls and H0lyoke's fone.
As we are approaching Easter and the spring vacation. the
chief topics of interest are the Declamation Cpntest and the Class
Prom. The Declamation Contest eclipsed the one given in 1908.
The Class Prom. took place XVednesday, April 20, find we Seniors
made it a pronounced success. if success is the rewarcl of hard
work. An-d now, with but a few weeks of work are on the
last stretch of the race.
The history of the Class of 1910 is finished. Page after
page. it is a story of flawless class work. Vtle have worshipped
the Shrine of Knowledge and she has rewarded us with the
victorious olive crown of success. We shall soon leave this old
school to seek wider experiences, but we shall never forsake the
memories of this glorious institution. Year after year shall pass,
but her foundations shall remain true. Year after year shall pass,
but flet us never forget the classmates with whom we worked side
by side for four short years. And when we journey into the
world to seek wider experiences, let us always remember the ideal
we first formed, "Quod Facis, Bene Facf! and success shall al-
ways crown the achievements of the Glorious Class of 1910.

History of the New Haven
By Dir. Susan S. Sheridan.
F YOL' pass through York Square or Broadway on a
school day about one o'clock, you will see hundreds upon
hundreds of high school students with bright, intelligent
faces wending their way homewardg while almost a
thousand others are turning their steps towards the school for the
freshman afternoon session.
Note the nationalities represented. There is scarcely a civ-
ilized nation upon the face of this wide earth which is not seen
here. Far away japan and Russia have added their quota, while
American-born children of nearly every European race are regis-
tered among the pupils of the school.
Note, too, what this higher education is doing for those who
are enjoying its advantages. Even to a casual observer the signs
are obvious: the tasteful dress, the good comradeship, the earnest,
thoughtful faces, the subjects under discussion-from 'Cicero to
affairs of state. Some are animatedly talking of Shakespeare or
Scott, 'and you realize that the world of books is now opened to
them, giving them culture and right views of -life forever more.
Here are two boys poring over a problem in geometry, there the
plan of a machine is being worked out, another group is reading
a German story-all eager and alert.
No one viewing this large community with its varied yet uni-
fied interests, can fail to perceive that in it lies the hope of our
fair city. Its life is so truly American, its opportunities as vast
as this great country. Here the poorest may reach the topif he

but bend his energies to the taskg he may associate with kings
and queens in the realms of thought if he only make himself
worthy of such friendship. Here the more fortunate in matter
of birth and social status learns to respect his less favored com-
panions, not for the clothes they Wear but for the mental power
which they showg he Hnds that learning has no royal road and
that it is easy to squander his intellectual inheritance if he sit idly
and make no effort. All this 'has 'been 'accomplished in the short
space of fifty years. Truly they builded well who laid the corner-
stone of this edifice half a century ago!
It is surprising how early in the history of New Haven the
question of a high school became a prominent one. In 1850 recom-
mendations were made for the establishment of such an institu-
tion, and in 1852 a special committee of citizens chosen to examine
into this matter reported that the district needed and ought to
have a high school. But this was a great step and a venturesome
one. So it was decided to enlarge the seating capacity of Webster
School and to oepn an upper room for the teaching of Algebra,
Latin and other advanced subjects. This experiment was so suc-
cessful that immediately the Eaton School was opened in the
lower part of the city with an advanced class also.
W'hen the school district was reorganized in 1856, the first
report of the new board of education called attention to the need
of a sc'hool for higher studies, the Webster and Eaton schools
being now overcrowded, especially in the lower grades.
Mr. VVilliam Kinne, then principal of Eaton School, writes
in his diary under the date Spring of 1859: "Mr. Daniel Gilman,
acting School Visitor, sent word to me that he wished to see me
at noon today. I failed to find him at the place appointed, but
met him on my Way to school this afternoon. He proposed that
our advanced pupils and any others who desire and are able to do
advanced work be gathered together into a sc'hool by themselves.
Mr. Gilman added: Something may be done that will prove to
be a High School in the end.' " Mr. Kinne further remarks: "T
shall prefer to do this thing openly, but Mr. Gilman thinks that
our plan would be frustrated 'if we called our new school a High
School, the idea not being popular with all citizens or even with
all members of the Board of Educationf,

I'IISTORY OE THE NEW HAVEN HIGH SCHOOL. 69
So the hall on the upper Hoor of the Young Men's Institute
Building on Grange street Cthe old Palladium buildingj was se-
cured and the statement made public that this arrangement was
simply and solely to relieve the pressure in the district.
The seats for the new school were to come by sloop from
Boston, but as this vessel also carried the monument ordered for
the grave of the Rev. Jeremiah Atwater, it traveled slowly. arriv-
ing ten days behind time.
Meanwhile an examination was held in Eaton School, when
eighty-five candidates fthirty-eight boys and forty-seven girlsJ
presented themselves, all but three coming from the public schools.
At last the school was ready, and on May 16, 1859, eighty-
eight scholars began work. with Mr. VX'm. Kinne as principal.
During the first term Prof. Thacher, Mr. Stiles, Mrs. Hoyt, and
the Rev. Daniel Miles assisted in the teachingg but from Septem-
ber, 1859, to September, 1860, the entire work of the school was
done by the principal and two assistants, Mr. George Jackson and
Miss Sarah Smith.-Miss Smith honors us with her presence
tonight, to the great joy of the "boys and girls" whom she taught
in these early days. The teaching force of the school was so
inadequate at this time that a great deal -of instruction was given
out of school hours, those Who had the welfare of the institution
at heart being willing to make any sacrifice to insure its success.
In another year five teachers were required to carry on the
work, and in this year CI86ID five young ladies of the school be-
came teachers in the grammar schools of the city.
The catalogue containing the names of students of the school
between the years 1860-1869, is interesting reading. Among the
boys are many prominent names, showing that the school did
noble work and that the students availed themselves of their great
opportunities. Alfred T. Clark became U. S. and British Consul
to Cuba and Italian 'Consul at St. John, New Brunswickg Chas.
E. Davis is now Brigadier-general in the U. S. Army.
IVith such records as these, it is no wonder that the high
school soon outgrew its quarters in the Institute Building. We
next hear of its removal to the old Lancasterian School, the site
of the present Orange St. School. Now a fifth class, known as

the "Latin Preparatory," was added, under the charge of Mr.
James D. Whitmore, formerly of Webster Schoo'l. The students
in this class, which soon became ia little school in itself, were
younger than the high school pupils, but desired to begin the
study of Latin and ot-her branches at an early age.
Two years later an unsuccessful attempt was made to unite
the Hopkins Grammar School, and the public high school, as it
was thought that two independent schools of such a character
were not necessary in a city the size of ours. 4
In this year, the Rev. Mr. Frazer of Reading Cnear Oxfordj,
England, while making a tour of the States and Canada for the
purpose of seeing the schoo'l systems, visited the New Haven
school and later made a long and highly commendatory report on
the work he saw there.
But the school was no longer to enjoy the calm, peace and
quiet which made for progress and growth. It was now known
to be a school for advanced pupils and many of the people of the
city began to have doubts and fears and to talk about heavy taxes.
The newspapers published articles attacking the school, on the
ground that the grammar school gave a good education to the
poorer boys and girls and the wealthier parents cou'ld pay for
their children's training.
For several years this state of affairs continued, until at last
the crisis came. A committee was appointed from the Board of
Education to look into the matter. This committee disagreed.
Mr. Gilman, the old friend of the school, presenting a minority
report, the other two members reporting that the High school
should no longer be maintained at public expense. One member
of the committee is quoted as saying that the school was "an elle-
phant, a fungus, a bantlingf' and that he had a Hpetard under it
that would blow it sky high." l
As the School Board could not come to any agreement, they
finally decided to ask the taxpayers of New Haven to ballot upon
the question, and appointed Vlfednesday, June 6, 1866, as the day
for voting. -
Mr. Kinne in his record of these events speaks of the beauty
of that June morning, the sky showing its deepest blue, the grass
vw... N- '
H1sTORv OF THE NEW HrXX'EN HIGH SCHOOL. 71
and trees adding to the scene the charm of their verdure--as if
heaven itself smiled in anticipation of the great victory.
At 8 o'clock that morning, Mr. Gilman and Mr. Kinne met
four of the older 'high school boys at Iudd's bookstore, and out-
lined the campaign. The boys were given handbills to distribute,
beginning at the outskirts and making their way into the center
of the city, visiting also the "shops of the town. 5
These circulars said, in large capitals:
"Shall the High School be Maintained?
The Question at Issuefl
"Shall we say that the public schools are for the poorg i. e.,
are schools for paupers? If so, kill the High School and vote No.
"Or shall we say, 'Make the public schools good enough for
the bestg they will then be none too good for the humblest.'
"If so, keep the High School and vote Yes."
It is worthy of note that the four high school boys entrusted
with this undertaking afterwards made a name for themselves in
the world. each becoming an important factor in the life of the
city where he resided. Their names were Thomas Gordon, Qliver
Hawkins, Howard Mansfield and Joseph Morse.
June 6, 1859, was full of thrilling episodes. Scores of work-
ingmen gave up their noon hour that they might vote for the
school which was to help their children to better things than they
had been able to enjoy. Employers sent wagon loads of men from
their factories to vote Yes.
There were active workers on the other side. An infiuential
citizen visited several shops and tried to talk the men into voting
against the school. ln one shop he ran across an old high school
boy, Frank Bradley by name. Bradley interrupted the speaker
to say: f'Mr. Blank. when I worked for you, didnyt you find me
a good workman? YVasn't I the only man in the shop who was
able to fix that complicated machine when it got out of gear ?"
f'Yes, Bradley," said Mr. Blank, 'fthat's true."
"VVell, sir," was the reply, UI could never have done it, if I
hadn't learned a few things at the high school."
The Irish citizens of New Haven found at the polls Mr.
Bernard Reilly and Mr. john Maher, who put the question clearly
. .,,W - -
72 NEW TTAVEN HIGH SCHOOL CLASS Book
before them and induced them to vote for the school. Indeed,
these men helped save the day.
The teachers worked strenuously for their beloved institu-
tion, and some of the schoofl girls were instrumental in polling
favorable votes, while there was scarcely a boy left in the school
on the afternoon of this eventful day, most of them going over
to the State House, the voting place, and there peddling tickets
and using all their blandishments to get men to vote for their
school. They good-naturedly teased many of those who were
well-known opponents, one boy six times asking an enemy of
the school to vote in the affirmative.
W'hen the ballots were counted, the 'high school was found
to have Won the day, and Mr. Chatterton, one of its warmest
friends, fairly hugged Mr. Reilly in his delight.
That evening the high school boys had a gala time. They
promenaded the streets with torchlights and serenaded everyone
who had helped in the great cause.
For several years the school kept holiday on june 6, celebrat-
ing the day by a picnic or an. excursion. But as time wore on all
these matters became history, and present-day questions were now
the vital ones.
In 1867, friends of the school heard with regret that Greek
was to be dropped from the curricuflum, which meant that no more
boys could be fitted for college. But indefinitely, three years'
English course was given the school, and this was some com-
Mr. Kinne was succeeded in 1869 by Mrf T. VV. T. Curtis,
during whose administration the course was changed to four
years, and Greek was restored. In 1870, the high school held its
first formal graduation, and in old Music Hall Know the Grand
Opera Housej, in the presence of a large assembly, presented its
first diplomas to the graduaitng class of ten girls and four boys.
Again the school outgrew the school building, and in 1873 a
more commodious modern building was erected upon the site of
the Lancasterian School. But this accommodated' the school for
only a few years, so rapid was its growth under succeeding ad-

Despite the fact that in 1894 the Boardman Manual Training
School was opened with its splendid equipment, and its line corps
of teachers under Principal Mather, the Orange street building
could no longer meet the needs of the city. Accordingly, the
present building was erected, and in IQO3 the Hillhouse High
School moved to York Square and united with Boardman under
the name New Haven High School.
The recent history of the school is too well-known to need
repetition here. But a few items may be found interestin.
The Hrst class graduated from the high school numbered I4Q
the graduating class of June, 1909, numbered 256.
In this month of November, 1909, the school has nearly 2,300
students, including a Freshman class of 900 and 900 Boardman
Of the 635 teachers now in New Haven, 404 are graduates
of the high school. 38 of the 83 teachers in the high school were
educated in the school.
The present Senior class will send 74 students to Yale: 26
to the different WOl'l1CI1iS colleges: 56 to the Normal School: others
intend to enter dental colleges, kindergartens, hospitals, art schools.
technical schools, etc.
This is a mere outline of the history of recent years. But
even this sketch shows on how many sides it touches the life of
New Haven and what varied and broad fields it opens to multi-
tudes whose advantages would otherwise be most meager.
Those who bestknow the aims, the breadth of View of its

Athletic History of the Class of 1910
HE Class of 1910 has had an athletic record as splendid as
the record of the class in everything else. Back in our
Freshman year, our arrival in school was immediately followed
by the High School team's winning of both the Football and Base-
ball championships. NVho will forget the crowds that turned out
to see thegreat New Britain game at Yale Field that fall, and
travelled into the dread wilds of Middletown to see Captain Bren-
nan's men beat Hartford and gain permanent possession of the
Trinity Cup? No 1910 fellow won a place on that team, but
Morris Frankel, the stalwart football player of later seasons, made
the Basketball team. This was the first sign of our supremacy in
that branch of sport. VVhile the regular Baseball men were beat-
ing everybody from De XYitt Clinton High School to Naugatuck,
the Freshman team was making the older class men sit up and
take notice, for we turned out a winning nine and defeated the
haughty Juniors for the inter-class championship by the decisive
score of I4 to 4. Two weeks later, in a wildly exciting game,
the "Regulars" beat Bulkeley and Won the State championship out
at Yale Field before a real crowd.
In the fall of 1907 we came back to school determined to
make a name for ourselves in the athletic life of the School.
Captain Messenger turned out a football team which won eight
out of nine games, losing only to the strong Hotchkiss eleven.
Frankel was the only sophomore on the team, but he easily made
a name for himself for his strength and speed. Saxe made a
line showing as an understudy for Phil Connors, and paved a
way for his success the following season. Our class team made
a hard Hght but was defeated in a close game by the Freshmen.
The Regular Basketball team had a bad season financially. but
78 NEW HAVEN HIGIT SCHOOL CLrxss Book
otherwise was a success. Frankel and Saxe of our class were
easily the stars -of the team, and made reputations as two of the
best High School forwards in the State. Geraci, also a Sopho-
more, did fine work as a substitute. The work of our class team
was fully up to the standard set by our men on the f'Regulars,"
for we turned out the first of our three successive championship
The Regular Baseball team of IQO8 was not quite as good
as the previous year, owing to the loss of all but two of the men
who helped win the State Championship. In a hard race we at
last succumbed to Hartford, who won the Pennant, and who had
in Sherman a pitcher as phenomenal as either our Tommers or
Torgerson. Our class nine nearly won a second championship
but lost the final game to the Seniors by the score of one to noth-
ing. Two 1910 men won their HN. Hf' on the regular team,-
Flannagan and Burns.-and the former soon showed his won-
derful baseball ability which led to his election as captain at the
end of the season.
The first athletic event of our junior year was the Inter-
Class track meet, which we won by one point. Then came the
football team with its great games against Erasmus and Nauga-
tuck. Four Juniors played and played well,--Connolly, Frankel,
Saxe, and Herrity. The first-named played the same sensational
game that he did the year before, and was elected captain at the
end of the season. Our class team had no better success than in
past years, and lost to the fine Senior team, which in the end
won the championship.
With the approach of winter, basketball came to the front
once more, and with a veteran team Captain Dustin came through
a very good season. Frankel, Saxe, and Geraci continued their
good record of the previous year. The juniors again upheld the
honor of the class of 1910, and severely defeated the Sophomores.
Then came that game down at the Y. M. C. A., which kept
Juniors and Freshmen, players and spectators, keyed up to the
highest pitch of excitement during two nerve-racking halves.
However, we came out on top again, and had little difiiculty in
' A, Y. Y "Twill--A f-
HIS'1'CJRX' or A'rHL1:'r1cs or CL.xss or 1910 79
beating the Seniors the next week, thus winning the inter-class
basketball championship for the second successive time.
During the basketball excitement, the Hockey team was
working hard, and although beaten by Taft, defeated Hartford
by a good score. Ralph Burton, this year's captain, Wilsolt, Brom-
ley, and XYheeler represented the Junior class. Another team
which did not get much notice during the winter was the indoor
track team. The members of this team did good work in their
two meets, and decisively defeated Hartford in the Naval Re-
serve meet here. Captain Connolly, VValter and 'Tom Carroll
were the juniors on the team.
XVith "Spring, gentle Spring" came that King of all sports,
Baseball, and a squad of sixty men responded to the call of Mr.
Hackett and Captain Flannagan. The team played hard, steady
ball all season and ended up with a triple tie with Bridgeport and
Middletown for the leadership of the XYestern Division of the
League. In the play-off, after we won a close game from Mid-
dletown, Bridgeport defeated us, only to lose the State Cham-
pionship to Wes'terly, in the final game at Yale Field two days
later. Captain Flannagan was easily the star of the season and
well deserved his re-election. Gessner and Sullivan, the two
other Juniors on the team, did splendid work. The inter-class
race also resulted in ia triple tie between 1910, 1909, and 1911. In
the play-off 1911 came out on top, much to the disgust of the
The track team made a good showing against Hotchkiss, but
Derby?-Csoft pedallj Owing to lack of funds either to pay
our entry fee or the team's car-fare, we were unable to enter
the VVesleyan meet. 'KBunk'l Carroll, captain of the team for
1910, did great work, especially against Hotchkiss, when he made
I8 out of our 26 points. The other Juniors were 'Captain Con-
nolly in the sprints, Tom Carroll and Lees in the quarter, "Doc"
Wright in the Hurdles, and "Skid" Levy in the pole-vault.
Then, last of all, your Senior year with its ups and downs
in sports as well as in studies. The Football team, crippled by
losses from injuries and "other sources" CD listj, had a poor
season. 1910 was represented by Captain Frankel, Bishop Cwho
80 NEW H.AN'EN HIGH SCHOOL CLASS Book
won the individual cupj, Saxe, Herrity, Penny, Hershman,
Geraci, and Manager Stiles. Our class team, after much stren-
uous practice, lost a heart-breaking game to the Juniors, who, to
our secret satisfaction, lost to the Freshmen.
The Basketball team fought through a hard schedule with
Hne success, although the unnecessarily foolish conduct of three
of its best players weakened it for a time at the start. However,
Captain Geraci soon got his men working together, and deserves
great credit for his leadership and brilliant individual playing.
The other Seniors were Wynne, Lees, George Isbell, and Burt.
The last-named was the star of the team without doubt. For
the third successive time, a record seldom made by any class, we
won the inter-class Basketball Championship. This victory was
due largely to ia sensational finish against the Sophomores in their
game, when we rolled up 8 points in the last few minutes and put
the game and the championship "on ice.'y
The Hockey team has had very little chance to play so far,
and in its one game played a no-score tie with Hartford. Captain
Burton, VVilson, Wheeler, Brusstar, and Bishop were the Seniors
who won their HN. H. H. T." 'Class hockey was started up and
in the fi-rst game 1910 beat 1912, two to nothing. No other games
had been played when this was written, but it is hoped that, with
favorable weather, the Seniors can win another championship.
Captain Purdy and Manager Booth deserve a lot of credit for
getting their men out early, and if the other classes had showed
similar enterprise, a full series could have been played by now.
The indoor track men are working hard down at the Boys'
Club in preparation for the Hartford meet, February 21. Cap-
tain Carroll, "Doc" VVright and Lees are the Seniors who will
probably be taken up. .
It is hard to say anything about Baseball at this early date,
but the outlook is far from encouraging. It is up to 1910 to turn
out eu, masse, as the saying is, and make the team a success finan-
cially as well as in its playing. Seven positions must be filled, and
it is up to everyone who knows a catcher's mit from an umpire
to come out and help fill them, and everyone who has any regard
HISTORY OF ATHLETICS OF CLASS OF 1910 81
for the fair name of the school or the class ought tO make a reso-
lution not to miss one of the six home games during the season.
The Class of 1910 has had a splendid record in athletics, and this
is its last chance to show that the sfnirit of the school is not dead,
and that this class and this class alone can awaken it from its
slumber. lf we succeed in doing this, fellow-classmates, there
is not one of you but will cherish in his heart forever this great-
est and truest evidence of the Class of IQIO.
Dull0SE MURPHY, IQIO. 1
Vice-President of Senior Class.
HE Annual Amateur Circus given by the members of the
New Haven High School, for the Athletic Association,
was a great success. The books show that the Athletic Asso-
ciation only lost 556.78 by the show, which is considered very
good, and establishes a precedent by being the worst showing
the school has made for three months. Vie feel that we owe the
school a description of the great event as the audience consisted
of only two people, namely, Duff Everrit and Dot Tinkey. XYe
canit explain why more were not present as four tickets were
sold. The acts were as follows, viz:
Dubose Murphy gave a prologue giving the history of the
Athletic Association, the school, the United States and wound
up by giving a lecture on the metamorphisis of the Cosmos. This
only took an hour and a half, and the audience, the balance of
the performers, and the ushers all enjoyed a good sleep.
The first act was sleight-of-hand by Gardner Osborn. The
magician gave an interesting exhibition of the black art. He
made a 25c piece, which he borrowed from the audience, vanish.
The men of the audience were exceedingly wroth and gave the
performer a black eye.
The next act was to be a swimming race between the girls
of the Senior and Junior classes. Doris Thompson was not able

to compete as she fractured one of her eye lashes. The event
was won in fine time by Muriel Miller, who covered the distance
fIO yardsj in 45 min. 55 4-5 sec.
The third act was a Spanish bull iight between Bull Nettle-
ton and one of Arthur XVebb's calves. The calf was defeated by
the worthy champion. QNote the calf was only -a week old.j
Prof. Nettleton then had a fierce combat with a goat. The An-
gora ate the Prof's new kid gloves and his 39c Panama. This
was his last straw, so the Prof. retreated hastily to the wings.
The next act was one of the finest of the day. It was of an
athletic nature. Ken Deming executed a hop, skip, and jump
with unwonted speed. Donald VVynne gave an exhibition of pole
vaulting, going up to the height of 3 ft. 6 in., beating the previous
record of Dick Wheeler by 2 feet. The last event of this great
act was a sparing match between VVallace Stiles and Ike Brom-
ley. The combatants actually exchanged blows three times dur-
ing the 'highly uninteresting forty round bout.
By -the end of this act the audience fled, although efforts were
made to stop them. The performers, who did not have time to
appear, were so over-joyed that they became highly intoxicated
with red lemonade. The Crescent reporter tried to stop this un-
graceful waste of lemonade, which he knew must have cost at
least eight cents a gallon, but was ungratefully kicked out.
