Music by MARY E. JAMES. i ELIZABETH AHERN j She has light brown hair, a pretty smile, and lovely 1 gray eyes. She is very quiet, so we do not know much about her. Perhaps she has perseverencc and that Will indeed win her a place in this world. CELESTE AIMONE In the HWho is Whot, of N. R. H. 5., this name stands among the first for other than alphabetical reasons. Gentle reader, turn the pages of this fair volume and count the entries of this poetic name; Scholarship, Dra- matic, and French Clubs; Class Secretary in Junior and Senior Year; G. 0. Secretary, French Club Secretary, Member of Bulletin Staff, HAnd still the mystery grew that one small head could carry all she knew? JAMES AIMONE It's just a bluff. He is trying to look older than he is. But beware of the sharp tongue, for it can hurt as well as persuade. Qualities of leadership may he found in this member. EDWIN ALEXANDER Here is a fellow with a keen sense of humor, with a ready answer. His hobby is radio; indeed he always carries some part of a radio set With him. This does not prevent attention in class nor hinder success in club membership. EM MA ALOISE For sheer persistence and steady climbing We commend this member of the class. Gentle, quiet, pleasant ways characterize her and Win success where more aggressive persons fail. GERTRUDE ALVORD lGertie" must mean practical in some language, for from her physical appearance to her wish to look after all details, no matter how minoreshc is practical with the exception of one fact. She cherishes the desire to one day become an artist, and it is said that young artists starve in garrets. ANDREA AMBROSE llAndy" is quiet, but iistill waters run deep." She is studious and clever with the pencil. She has no great ambition but knows Hwhen to do whatf! and we need many of her kind to make our world happy. FRANK ARNOLD Frank is another of the class chemists, and is sure to make a success as a flrst-class pharmacist. His hobby is snapping pictures and some day he may get the job for the Year Book. Look out, Mr. Odin! MARJORIE BALLIN "Margefi we have her in athletics, in the French Club and Scholarship Club, and in Dramatics, and she stands. out in each. Thus she is one to excite admiration, for we canlt understand how she does it. "Marge? is the class baby. She will graduate when she is hfteenl JOSEPH BALTZ This is U. M. 13.," not of Radio Station W'. O. R., but of N. R. H. S. Joe is a radio fan, too, and may some day become an engineer, no particular kind, just a good one. Joe is well liked and is a good man for an en- gineering school. 15 ANNA BARTNEW She's a generous girl, with a good-natured smile, a, pal you would be proud to boast of. It is said she haunts the theatre, but she has aimid to graduate and has faced this goal steadfastly during her four years in High. MARY BARTNETT Just a few words about Mary Bartnstty a girl who is very hard to forget. Sheis quiet, patient, gentle in manner, and seldom is seen without her chum Anna. MARJ ORIE BENEDIKT Seriousy studious and possessed of an air of dignity andireserve and of a thoughtful brow! That's tiMarge'L- sometimes. Gay, irrepressible, showing hashing eyes and laughing dimples! That's "Marge":sometimes; con- genial, frank and sincere, a treasured friend! Thatis HMarge'ysalways. IRVING BENJAMIN Yes, thatys his name even if it does look wrong. Any- way, has a good fellow and has a shaky fist 011 the man- dolin. Not only does he play in school but some of us have danced to his music. SOFIA BEREA With such a musical name beside such a Winsome pic- ture, there is little need of remark to quicken the imagi- nation of the reader. W'c could do it in Spanish, but our English is not equal to the subject. 16 BLANCH 12 BERGER Brown wavy hair! brown eyes! full of fun! a good sport! thatls Blanche. She loves to have a good time, but 5110 studies and plays basketball and tennis, too. ARTHUR BERTI NE As a preliminary training for life on a ranch, Bcrtine has taken part in the cross country runs. Some of the Faculty may have thought that he was running away from school, but they are sometimes mistaken. lYALTox BERTI NE Xl'ally was 011 the class basketball team in previous yearsy but this yEarhpcrhaps too much work. W'ally has to get a fmished beginning for he wants to become a millionaire. Donlt begin on oil stock, W'ally! LUCILLE BILDHAUSER Anyone seeing Lucille would never think her ambi- tion was to be a Congresswoman and own a Police Dog puppy; for Lucille is too quiet and demure t0 romp with a police puppy. We have seen Lucille in both the Pirates and Papita and recognize her ability to be an actress. We certainly hope she succeeds in her am- bition. DOROTHY BLAIR To be a designer is her great ambition. She has practised design all through her course; designs of every type. Oh, yes, dress designing will be her line. Lay figures, artistically draped, Will be her congenial asso- ciates. B ICATRICJC BLOOM llBee'l has tried basketball and Dramatics, but we think she must realize her dream of seeing and knowing Paris before she can settle down to her life work and hours of leisure made short by playing bridge. JEROME BRADY Listen, my children, and you shall hear of Jerome Bradyls great career. On the Champion football team was he. And the way he played was a sight to see. Captain he was of the basketball team. And the shots he made were pretty mean. As an expert sheik, he can always be seen. But we shall look for him on Walter Canulfs team ! JOH N BmsxxAx HMolly'y was one of our best men at basketball and also in cross country. He has letters for both of these and sure earned them. Molly and jolly go together and where one is you will find the other, and both together make up a good time, BARBARA BROOKS Barbara has red hair, and of course a temper. We know that she is serious and conscientious, and that she does her work well, without making much ado about nothing. We do not know what: her ambition is, but she makes an excellent Sunday School teacher. SYDNEY B URRELL The height of Syd's ambition is to be the coxy of a crew of French and History teachers. The teachers would be pitied with Syd to guide and furnish ballast. Altho Syd is very slow, he usually arrives where he wishes to he. Another case of the Tortoise and the Hare. OLGA BURSCH Interestsd in sports? Herc is a pal, ready for basket- ball, tennis, or swimming. Or. is the play the thing? The Dramatic Cluh recommends Olga Bursch. A smil- ing, chatty girl, equally pleased to study or play. ANTOI NETTE CA MILLON Ii uAnnette" was on the Glee Club and in our fine French Cluby and we shall miss her pleasant face very much. XYc wish her much success for her litibbyvmtisic, and her desire to become a piano teacher JESSIE CAMPBELL A bonnie lass, a hit too ready of speech at the wrong time. If she carries out her ambition to become a den tist's assistant, she will have many listeners. Her first real excursion is to he a trip around the world. J OHN CARLAFTES This is Johnny, our President. and surely we could not ask for a more cheerful person. Because of his office he has to serve on all the committees, and is right there with as much willingness to work as anyone. No matter what college. Johnny may atten l, he will he popu- lar with his pleasing personality, and hair part. ELEANOR CASEY Eleanor Casey is famous for her knowledge of his- tory; moreover, she does not keep her information to hsrself. She practices the art of speaking at all times so that she may become an eloquent lawyer. STUART CHAMBERS Besides his numerous characteristics ltStu" has one weakness and also one asset. The weakness is a HSOph." The asset is the one eight hundredth part of an Over- land Roadster that seems to be his. The other seven hundred and ninety-nine parts belong to the school in general, judging from the way they ride in and on it. VVJLLIAM CHAMBERS n'Billl' is a regular member of 24. He has never flunlced a regents or an exam in his sixteen years of single life. He can read Cicero, in the dark, and Spanish in South America. He is going to be an en- gineer. However, he has not decided whether it will be 011 the uMain" line 01' the Westchester. He must have experience before he becomes president. MARio CIOFFARI ltChiefl! takes life very seriously. He is always serious but counteracts that by being a modern ltHereules." He is a brilliant scholar and succeeds in everything he un- dertakes. MARJOME CLARK Strong, athletic, clean of heart! Soul of honor not too smart! Kindly, steadyy true as steel! Stands by friends through woe or weal! Hair as black as the ravenls wing! Eyes that snap like anything! Quick of wit and wide awake-Margy Clark, she takes the cake. ROBERT CLEMICNTS Curly is a fellow of high character. He has never been especially interested in sports, but is a supporter of all activities. Curly is interested LU in Chemistry. He is very quiet, but this is no drawback. In fact it would be good for some in the school to he the same. BETTY COCHRAXE Modest, capable, Charming and sweet, this studint represents the highest type of New Rochelle girl. Her qualities of leadership were shown as managsr of the basketball team; her talents for stage appearances were shown not only in the Dramatic Club, hut also in her winning, irresistible role of official annoLmCir in assem- bly. The class will cherish the memory of this good friend. FLORENCE COLANTINO "Flo" comes all the way from Quakeridge to take part in the activities of our class. She sings for us, and acts for us, and she studies, 100, for she is graduat- ing with '24 in spite of her passion for automobiles. GRACE Cox KLIN Bobbiels ambition is to go to Europe, and if all am- bitions are granted she will he able to accompany the others from N. R. H. S. who want to go there. Grace has bobbed hair and is full of fun. FRANK CONNELLY Frank is first a good cvery-day sort of fellow who, like the rest of us, has his profieisncies and his failures. He has an intellect so profound that to mention it would make the names of Emerson and Carlyle obscure. We like him a lot, especially in the role of a father. INNOCENTIA COSENTINO Jeiizule-Dramaticsethey seem to go together. Re- member her in "When the Boy Comes Home.H Maybe when Jenzul goes to Europe she will return a famous actress and we shall all go and see her again. We hope we shall see her soon again. XVI N l FRED CRA liT Winifred is such a quiet, shy person that one hardly knows she is in the room. we guess that her name is conspicuous for its high marks on the teacher's class book. She was not spoiled by a year in the Mount Vier- non H. S. ELISE CRAWFORD Elise is a quiet, happy girl, the kind that can play any part that will add to the happiness of others. We donlt know what she wants to do, but we know deep thought will set her on the right track and we wish her luck. JAMES CRICATURO HJimmy" hates studies, but his love of athletics brings him a passing average. So he is one of those fellows who sports a gold football and has plenty of letters to adorn his sweaters for the rest of his life. ALICE CUDDY Alice has a fair complexion, and, of course, the red hair that goes with it. She does not seem to have the fiery temper, though she may be holding back on us. RUTH DARLING Ruth is very tall, very slender, and very blond. She is smart, too, and can speak French as well as any of us, and better than most of us. We know she will succeed in her hope some day to njuggle waffles in Childs"- andewe hope she lands "them"! She can. HARRJ 13' in: DAVIS The genuine worth, honest effort, versatile talents of Harriette are shown by her varied points of contact with school affairs. Of course, she was a member of the Scholarship Ciuh while a Freshman. Then the Dramatic Club offered greater attractions, but left time for G. O. councils and meetings with the Library Club as well as the French Club. Surely here is a prospective member of our city Woman's Club. M URRAY D EC K ER Do you know a bitter natured person than HCy"? He is an optimistehe has a pleasant face and was given the plupique of a runner. He is invaluable to our track and. cross country teams. DONALD DEEDMAN HDOIW is a fast worker, especially at dashing 100 yards and football. He is a member of the iicheerful bunch" and helps to make school what it is. But you can't write much about him-you have to know him. HOWARD DINCEE All Seniors at the party know that the class has a purely Senior Orchestra. Howard did not play for us at that time, but from what he can do in assembly he would have been an asset. Howard is jolly and full of fun, well liked and a good worker for the class. EVELYN DonRixc iiEvfntually, why not now?" was never meant for her. She does her housework only when the inspiration strikes her, and gets away with it. Her favorite "gymw suit is a composite style made up of contributions. ADELTNE DOLAN The song goes, ilSweet Adelinef but we call her ilPudge." However, she is tall and straight and has a tipatented" hair cut. She has helped ,24 in basketball, volley hall and the Dramatic Club She was intent upon graduating, though she had a handicap from the first. She longs continually for summer with swimming and dancing. HAROLD DOLL uHarryU is a bit lazy, but he is playing baseball and we think he is pretty good. He would like to send a per- fect Algebra paper up to Albany and we give him, at least, one more chance. GEORGE ERIC DRAKE Lineal descendant of Sir Francis Drake, as you may know from his Spanish accent, which was originally ac quired by his ancestor in combat with the Spanish Ar- mada. Other days. other weapons. George uses his smile to overpower his enemies. CHARLES EASTMAN Which is the most popular, Charlie or the Packards. The Packards have to go some to beat Charlie and his chuckle. Charlie is a tennis wizzard and also made foote- ball this year. Princeton will make use of Charlie. When better cars are made Charlie will sport one. CONSTANCE ECCLES Constance? How well the name suits the girl. Pa- tient, agreeable and gentle is this little person, who will spend her days smoothing out the rough places for others, but claiming little room for herself. 24 DONALD ECKLEY A Spanish student! A member of the Scholarship Club! Slim and black-haired. Perhaps he is cut out for a politician or a great lawyer. Now, however, he is but known as one of those peculiar freaks of nature-a radio hug. DAVID ELLIS Dave is a wond'ir at basketball, but was not eligible to play this year. In previous years David was 011 the track and football squads and received his letters in them. Dave may some day play on a professional has-- kctball team if he keeps in trim. ERIK ERIK SON XVell, Pat is another of the jolly fellows 0f 24. It wasn't his fault we didnt win thevclass football cup this year, because he certainly played well. MILDRED EVERIss She has no tipet'y name and says shelhas r10 ambition. We think she is just great and we know the school will miss herhvfrom the class room, from the Dramatic Club and from volley ball and track. GRACE FANELLI ttBright Eyes" entered N. R. H. S, in 1920 as a win- some, shy but cheerful little miss, as an inexperienced little Freshie; but now all one can say is hBeware? With a baby stare she gets them all; the bigger they come, the harder they fall. 25 JEN N113 FARER An alert mind, under her very short black hair, has won a place in several clubs. An interesting personality shines from Jennie's keen dark eyesy which match well with a slightly foreign appearance and accent. EDGAR FARMER Bill sure has the earmarks of an inventor, in every- thing he does. He is divided between engineering and art, so he would he a dandy at a happy medium between the two. Bill has been in all the operas and everyone remembers his solo that was broadcast last year. It will be fun to watch for Bill. say ten years from now. THEODORE A. FICHTEL Theodore has been so busy growing tall during his High School days that he has had little time for less important matters. Studies may have been neglected now and then, but what is more important than getting up in the world? KATHERINE FITZPATRICK It was nKitte Fitzll they called her Who could get an interview With an artist, doctor, lawyer, How she did it. no one knew. GEORGE FOSTER Is there any one who does not know George and his. good steed, Iver-Johnson? No matter what weather. rain, snow or shine Tih rides his wheel to school. Tib must have a wonderful pair of legs to keep up the speed he does up North Avenue. This ambition is to become an electrical engineer. but for reeriation he is going in for the six-day races at Madison Square. 26 HENRY FRANK We are not sure whether it is Philip or Henry that is in school this year, but he signs his name this way, so we will call him Henry, at least until we see him with his brother. Henry was on the football squad this year, class hasketiall, and the Senior Party Committee. T00 had the rest of the school could not have been there. They missed a great time. FRAN K FRENCH One of the famous uFrench Brothers." It is hard to say which gets into the most trouble. At any rate, HFrenchyll keeps "Chest'y going to keep up. Frencliy spends a good deal of his time at Spanish and will make a good bull thrower if not a good llToreadorW MARION FRIBOURG She talks a lot; she laughs a lot; she likes to dance and fool around. But Marion is making the best of the short time she has to spend in school and has realized :1 dreamy to graduate with ,24. NORMA FUERST She is very small, very dark and possesses an abun- dance of Hpep," and a happy-gOalucky air. Her ambi- tion, beyond that of graduating, we do not know, but she looks as though she could conquer all obstacles. ALBERT GANTS This class may be lacking in some few requirements that go to make up an ideal Class. There is one thing though that we are not lacking and that is a comedian who, both in his own opinion and in ours,,is surpassed by no one. Do not think us ironical if we say that he is on the best terms with the faculty and a star student in all subjects. 27 HAZEL GARDNER Our Class seems to contain many Nradio bugs? In "Haze,u however, we have a new type. She is very slight and glides around noiselessly and has looked for- ward to graduation for four years. Some consider this a drawback, but little tlHazc" has distinguished herself in the French Club, in Dramatics, in Scholarship and in Music. SARAH GELLOVVITZ You all know Sarah, the little girl with the cute baby voice and bright hair. But unless you know Sarah, you would never guess that beneath that hair there is an un- usual amount of gray matter. Its a very deceiving and very Charming paradox. HELEN GENO Fair Helen of Troy stirred up a war that lasted ten years. Time was nothing to her; neither is it to Helen Gong, Any time will do for arriving at school; any time will do for handing i11 homework. Her mission is to counteract the mad rush of her contemporaries. HELEN GEANETTA We never see her without Anna Rogge, but she no doubt is lovely alone, too. She surely adds a lot of pep, laughter and zeal to the couple. DOUGLAS GJBSON ilDoug" is a tall blond and plays a iisaxf, Do they succumb to his Wiles? He played varsity football, too. Now he is taking up uMah-Jong" and we have heard that he usually wins-when he keeps his own score. 28 EDWARD GlLLlGAN HEddie'i is a baseball player and will help the team this year. t is too bad Eddie did not help the school basketball. He was on the championship team of the City Junior League. His ambition is to become an ac- countant and he is making a good start. ELSIE GOLDMAN ttAliy is temperamental. Her friends say her moods come and go like the winds. She is quiet, but greets every one with a smile. She plays the mandolin very well, so perhaps we shall meet her again in the musical world. EMILY GOODENOUGH She is a true seniori She is of medium height and is very pretty and has a pleasing pcrsOnality. She's just "chock full 0, fun." She, too, belongs to the French, Spanish and Scholarship Clubs, and she is ready to take responsibility. we all like Emily. DOROTHY Gos MAN From a lowly freshman to a high and mighty senior, Dorothy has smiled her way through our school. She does not bring athletic honors, but many will miss her pleasing face from among the members of the Scholar- ship and Spanish Clubs. EM MA GOSMAN Emmay up to the present, holds the school record for unhohbed hair. Emma is a good scholar, and always has her work prepared, even in French, so you see she spends a good deal of her time taking advantage of the opportunities offered. Emmals hobby is eating, so alto- gether she lives a pretty busy life. 29 SOPHIE GROSS "0. TT speaks French Huently, hut wishes to go to China. This seems illogical but she is a clever girlea dramatist. She can afford to he eccentric. So she colw lects miniatures. EUDOLIA HAIGHT ttDodie" is quite unusual. She is a clever pianist. That isy she plays tijazz" and studies the classical works. HDodie'" loves to skate, and wants to be known as a game sport and sympathetic friend. She is a student 0f 24. She often Creates a wave of suspicion, for she thinks she can get sick quick! ELLIOT HALL Elliot joined the Spanish Club and the French Club because he did not know just where his accent belongs. Later he thought the Radio Club better because the ac- cent does not matter. Serving on dance committees and managing hoards may qualify him for interlocking dirEc" torates. SEYMOUR HANDY It seems as if hCyi' missed opportunity when she knocked. To think his father teaches History and JKCy" doesft get A. More likely Mr. Handy is fair to the rest of us and lets ttCy" earn a B if he gets it. ttCy" is a great old scout and helps anybody, any timey with any- th in g. W ESLEY HARRI SON A true friend! Full of fun and ready to enter into everything with the enthusiasm that makes dreams into realities. He is among the first on the list of those who have done a lot for 24. Up to the lasty with the best Year Book on record and a speech for commencement. his strong personality was felt. iYe know you'll succeed, nW'esf" even with those pretty little speeches for money tacked on to your name. 30 HAROLD HAYDEN "Rocks" is known hest for his highly cultivated sense of humor. It really is very well cultivated. His big am- bition is to become an architectsand to plan buildings in proportion to his height. Well, the W'oolworth Will look insignificant. HELEN HicBBARD The class of ,24 has received much from this gray eyed, dark haired girl whom everyone. knows as ltHoneyl, Basketball, Tennis, Senate, Debating Teams! All these do not go with her ambition, whichy she says, is HT0 own a Ford.H HERMAN HEGGEN Herman has that happy faculty of making people like him at once, Although his ambition is to become a Certi- hed Public Accountant, he has plenty of time for ath- letics and radio, and is a full-Fledged Hradio-bug." ROBERT HUN He xras short when he came to us, but his ambition was high; this finally brought him into the Crew Squad and Senior football team. Robert hslieves in getting into a thing promptly, hence he is a charter member of the Radio, Chess and Traffic Squad groups. ROBERT HE! NTZ ltBob" is quiet, hut he is a dandy for a manager 01' some office. His teachers all like his systematic way of going about his work. He is not athletically inclined, hut belongs to his share of the Clubs in school and is well liked by everyone. 31 RICHARD HERRON XVell, Dick got a gold football and a letter. This year tif he had passed 15 hoursl no doubt Dick would have had another letter, but the rule is made and you have to pass fifteen hours. Dick is president of the Dramatic Club and the club is a grand success this year. EDWIN HERZ Eddie was a dandy man on the Senior football team and also played baseball last year. iiBlitz" not only plays lisports," but we all know him as a llhddlerf, Eddie has been in the orchestra for the last three years and is now up in the front row. Eddie does not say his hobby is golf, but his ambition is to beat his "Old Man" on the links. Eddie may have a long climb to gain his desire. DONALD HICKOK llHickyl, is tall, slim, hue-looking and wears his hair with an exactly-inethe-middle part. We recognize him as an actor! He makes a good friend, for he is easy to get along with. liHickyll is no brilliant scholar, but seems to be ready to fit into his place on the globe. MARGUERITE HILL Smiles, laughter, fun, thatls HPeggy.H She is going, or at least means, to be an interior decorator. Maybe we'll employ Peggy to come decorate our future High School LUCY HINTON If Lucy carries out her plan, we shall know where to 100k for a hint on fashions. She Will publish designs that will compete with those of her classmate, Miss Blair. Such a quiet, unobtrusive girl does not suggest the business world, but the Kindergarten. 32 FANNIE HOFFMAN Some choose athletics because they are sporty; some because they are weak, but somey alas, because they seek to hatter down the healthy emboupoint. Good natured, kindly, faithful chum. the big heart is the great thing. MARY HOLDEN XVc prize her as a dramatist, but she blushingiy con- fesses that she wants to write the greatest novel of her day or to swim the fastest Marathon. What extremes! But they express her personaliy. She maintains an "Ah average and she can laugh and enjoy all pleasures, with the most carefree or careless, among us. ELEANOR IRVING She's bonny. blooming, straight and tall, And 12mg has had my heart in thrall; And aye it charms my very saul, The kind of love that's in her ete. eBzu'nx. GLADYS JACOBSON XYith her light brown hair, dreamy eyes, and happy smile we can easily call her hgladf, She has been a student for four years. That means she is serious, clever and conscientious and gets honors in exams. She is pleasant and humorous tooga wonderful friend. MARY JAMES Mary James is a quiet lass, an ornament to any class, the helpfulness you catft surpass, of Mary, red-haired, brown-eyed lass. VICTORIA JOH N SON Up hill and down dell from W'ykagyl she comes. XVisdom's taunt is in the N. R. H. S. Here the quiet, studious girl Finds interests that promise a great future. KENNETH Joxus Kenny is our baseball manager; so this year we are sure to have some good games. We havenlt heard much about baseball in assembly. Ken is not broken in yet, or perhaps the assistants are too bashful. Kenny wants to become president not of the United States, but the United Cigar Company. Free Cigars! LEON KAHAN tlBenjaminll is a good sport and has many friends, though he must study diligently. He wants to be a doctor. Just what kind we cannot tell, for now he spends his vacation at fishing. However, he has learned something from it, for his mind works like lightning, KATHERINE KAISER Cheerful, gay, and attractive. We lilac her a lot. Preceded by a line of brilliant brothers Kay does re- markably well. Her brothers were good at hockey. Kay uses a tennis racket instead. We certainly like her. A N NETTE KELLNER llNet" seems to have a hobby of drawing posters, if we are to judge from the new ones we see every time anything happens in school Net is not only an artist with the brush, but also at the piano. In fact she seems to be talented along a number of lines, for she belongs to the Glee Club. Annette is also a good scholar and above the average in athletics, so you see Net is pretty good all around! 34 MARY KISLLY She is not athletic. She is not a valedietorian. She is just ttMay," a pleasant and valuable asset to our Senior Class. She is always happy and she loves to dance. We know her pupils will love her when she begins to teach Business Arithmetic. ETH 12L KING Ethelis a Mah Jong Fiend; and spends all her spare time trying to Mah Jong. Ethel is a Very care-free person and is always cheerful even when she is studying Virgil diligently. IONE KING From the name uBirdieyy you might be deceived into thinking she is very small, and dainty. But she is one of the tallest persons among our number, and she makes a very good basketball player. She is never serious, but makes a wonderful friend to those who run the risk of being disgraced, thru her passion for chewing gum. LYDIA KITT Another who has worked for the Class of y24. Lydia, sometimes known as HBillyf" is always out for any sport that happens to be in season. Not all for sports, as she belongs to the French, Dramatic, and Scholarship Clubs. The latter explains how Billy is able to go out for any sport. Billyts ambition is to become the HFirst Lady of the Land"; so anyone sure of becoming Pres- ident had better get acquainted. VERA Kkoos Along with a laugh, a smile, a head of curly, golden hair comes uVee.H But this is not a light-headed human being we refer to, for Vee is serious when the occasion demands. She is a member of the Scholarship Cluby French Club tand not because she has toi, and Dra- matic Club. we understand she has interests in Stevens and Mamaroneck. This accounts for her ambition to drive a car. 35 DAVID KLVTXEK You might say that we drew a "good card" when we drew "Kut." It would take a lot of room to mention all he has gone out for, but we remember him for Track and Senior basketball especially. He has the combinzk tion of hrains and the ability to use them. ALMA LADENBURGER The young lady has litesary ambition to write a serial in the comic section of a weekly paper. This activity Will be varied by participation as a professional bask: - ball player 1'11 international games. IRENE LECUYliR HJoe'i is one of the few members of the French Club who can talk French. It would seem that she is a student, nevertheless we End her a most delightful commnion, full of Iatwliter. and readv for an thin". D , .. y 0 JAMES LEE "Jimmyn has had his ambition granted already, so WC do not know whether to hope or not. He passed geometry! However, he likes to work and has done a lot of it, for us; and not all at studies! PORTER L121: Everyone knows Porter, if not by sight surely through his cartoons in the Purple and White. Porter is quiet, but most active. He belongs to the French Club, Scholarship Club, and Dramatic Cluh. Porter's am- bition is to draw Holeproof Hosiery ads. and if he succeeds as well as he does with cartooning they will be wonders. PHILIP LICVICK Philips hobby is sleeping, and this accounts for his not being very energetic. Rather than be common and have no ambition, Philip wants to graduate, so between naps Philip studies Spanish and the rest of the extia- difficult subjects. Anyway Philip will no doubt, have his ambition come true. J CLICS Limxi: h'Budli is smart. There's no douht about it. A sense of honor, a wellstrained mind and the ability to recog- nize humor, coupled with the ability to act and to speak are his nmeansU to success. He talks to the radio, in his spare time, hoping it will lead him to his goal. He wants to be an engineer. JOHN LEWIS john is another of the Class Basketball wizards; it wasn't his fault that our best man had to get the measles just before the game. You ought to see John play Chess. You never would think that such a person could become so lost in meditation over a few pieces of wood. John is a fellow well liked by all. iVlARoARJCT LIPsEo Margaret is very quiet and demure. She is of medium height: with light hair which has a tendency to curl. She is very studious and also has a gift of art for she belongs to the Arts and Crafts Club. MILDRED LOPEZ Though the reason why they call her ttBillyl is still unsolved, she still is a scholar and a good sport. Even report cards hold no terrors for her. But, enough of praise! HBilly" idolizes Clean Hunter and adores Bridge. MARGARET LUBY HPeg" is a tall, slender girl with a vast amount of beautiful brown hair. iiPegii is quiet but has a keen sense of humor which helps to liven her up. She is the kind of a girl who would stand by you thru thick and thin. FRANK LUX The word iiLuxi, has several meanings already. Frank expects to give it a still more interesting significance. THOMAS MCEVOY No difficulty here about choosing a vocation. He is destined for great achievements in professional baseball. THOMAS MCKEAN The great Mystery is unsolved. Does Timmy use the same dope on his folks around report card time that he did on his Uncle, Hickok, some time ago. If so, Tim, give us some idea as to the hrst lesson; it sure is great. No joking, "Tim" is a good sport, well-liked by everyone, and not without good cause. DOROTHY MCKENZIE uDot" has just bobbed her hair. She is very quiet and never has much to say but that's nothinge-she can read Virgil and she understands French. She has a pleasing personality and a very jolly smile. No wonder we admire her. PRISCILLA MCLEOD nPris" has not been in our school very long, but her pleasing manners have made a place for her, which all will be sorry to find empty, in September. We were awfully glad she could graduate with us because she just loves to have her picture taken. FLORENCE MALAKOFF She is small, attractive and very pleasant. Of course we call her llFlof, She has not left us a record of great stunts or a lot of ttAys'l but we like her and hope to see her established in some firm as the Secretary the boss canlt get along without. CHARLES MANSON Our young Adonis may be known to you through the pictures for which he has posed. llHandsome is as handsome does." HDoell does not want to mar his good looks by wearing a worn, over-workcd expression. But he does very well, especially in talking. ANNA MARGOTTA ttVin" is very musical. Besides playing the piano very well she sings, too. We saw her in Pepita and she certainly made a fme Mexican. Who wouldnlt with black hair like NVinlsly? EMILIE MAYERS Pupil of the wise Erasmus, wandered from his Hall, amid the rural scenes of New Rochelle you cull the flowers of wisdom. You say you fain would play the harp. XVe trust you will soothe mortal ears, not join. A the angelic choir. HENRY J. MEIXI: After playing Basketball three years, visiting the Scholarship Club occasionally, the Spanish Club for recreation, and the Dramatic Club in the role of spec- tator, Henry has decided that Radio is more suited to his quiet tastes. BERNICE Mis'rzci-zR llBert" is a true sport! Fond of athletics and full of fun! She can play a great game of basketball and she maintains hcr average. Best we know her in the French and Dramatic Clubs and 0n the Traffic Squad. SARA MHYhRS She has dark hair and a pleasant smile, which shows a sunny disposition. She has taken her four years of High seriously, and deserves success in her effort to conquer the cold, cold world. ELEA NOR M ICHELFELDICR HMickey," a High School teacher! It does not seem at all like hery but that is What she hopes to become in the near future. With her pleasant personality and her four years, membership in the Scholarship Club behind her, ve know she will be a success. VIRGINIA MITCHELL A good citizen is the name which suits her best, for every day in every way she does her bit for N. R. H. S. At present her attention is divided between her guitar and her voice training. W'ith the help of the French Club she may one day perform as a Troubadour of Old Province. 40 LUCILLE MOORE Ho! there you designers for Vogue! I give you a model. Curly hair, tall graceful ligure, artistic temper- ament, all are there. Intelligence too and practical sense find expression as well in school as at home. LOU l SE MURRAY The possession of many friends and of many charms does not spoil this type of girl. Genuine sympathy and a sensitive spirit unite to form a valuable partner in our up ward strivings. j m x 12M 1: NISB 121. You people who have had the privilege of attending the Scholarship meetings recognize in lljackl, a most remarkable and capable President. Besides the Scholare ship Club she is President of the Mandolin Club and we all know whyewe've heard her play. Her ambition is to direct a summer camp. Letls go! FRED NJCYER Fred left us in January but will be with us again some night in June to get his diploma with the rest of us. We have missed him but know that to have a person like Fred in school to gain more knowledge would be wasted time. EILEEN NICHOLS Eileen Nichols, our little Senior, reminds one of a cheery, alert small bird. The toss of head, the sparkle in the eyes, the quick movements, the dainty little person give the impression of vigor. lightness, and sunshine. HELEN O'BRIEN From her usual title 'lBob'l you can all guess that she is slight and wiry, and a good sport, with bohhed hair. She has entered into all the girlsy sports and she has been in our Dramatic and Scholarship Clubs. She cn- joyed helping, and we have appreciated her, MAY O'BRIEN May's not at all like Helen. May is very quiet and a great reader. Perhaps that is why she wants to be a librarian. HARRY O'Cox NOR Next year athletics will miss Harry. No matter what the season, there is something for Harry to play. Harry is quiet but makes a hit with the girls and he always is, with one especially, at the corner by 2'15 before and after school. ANNA O,DONNELL She isn't very big, and she doesn't make much noise, but-we all know her, and think she is as nice as can heethus a necessary part of the Class of ,24. JA MES OyTOOLIC Jimmey is the center of this years Championship Interclass Basketball Team. No doubt he is one reason for their success. He was also on the Varsity Squade no wonder his hobby is studying-who wouldnyt if he could get on the varsity? BUSH PACKER XVith his experience in the Spanish Club and his liberal education in motion pictures, cant you just se him a famed, mechanical engineer? We have heard, though, that there is a vacancy to be filled on the trolley line. ISABEL PRATT She has chestnut brown hair, all wavy and nice; and twinkling brown eyes that are used to entice. When it comes to athletics shels always right there; she is full of the spirit and plays the game fair. She is smiling and witty and true as pure gold; shes a charm- ing young lass, whose story is here told. DOROTHY PRICE HDotl, Price, captain of our victorious girlsy basket- ball team, is what one would call a good sport and a regular girl. She has a wonderful smile that dispels the threatening clouds of pedagogical ire. LUCILLE PRICE A pleasant face, a hearty laugh, styleeand a dash of mint. Of course its ttLupfl our most popular girl. No wonder, she enters into everything with enthusiasm, and shes a regular sport. ALEXANDER QUERY ltSandyf, You who have seen him as a cheer leader may think that he is an interpretive dancer. That is wrong. His ambition is studying and he will soon enter the University of Virginia. BERTRAM RILEY Bert hails from Tuckahoe. It is unusual for such a fellow to come from such a place. HPeanut" played on the Champ Interclass Basketball Team, and on the Class Football Team. Bert's hohby is radio. no wonder! He has heard four English stations. Some set! XVho woulthft be a fan? AN NA ROGGE Anna is a master, or mistress in the art of soda- jugg'ling. She likes candy tooeso, we call her the Kandy Kid. When she has had her fill of sweets she is hoping to become a social-secretary. That is, unless she catches her fated txswect?y STUART . ROLFSEN Here is the modern Romeo with the Buick in disguise. Stuart is, like a good many 01' the surprises in the class, quiet, and very modest. Things happen where you least expect them, so some day we should not he surv prised if WC see Stuart playing the leading part inw well Hamlet! WILLIAM Romss If William ever wanted to bc a second story mall he sure has the qualifications as far as quietness and height are concerned. However, XYilliam has other ideals. He is a member of the Scholarship Club and probably has as many perfect WK" reports as anyone in the class. VViIliam is 011 the P. 8: XV. staff as well as in the Spanish Club. All his work is excellent and he is sure to be successful in business, Which is his ambition, CATHERI x1: ROSA A sort of sweet briar rose; the kind that grows in a dear old-fashioned garden, that cheers the folks, takes care of itself, and never disappoints. IRViNG RUBIN lVe present hsrewith our successful, competent bus- iness manager of the P. tQ W. Quick, alert, incisive is this budding journalist and publisher. Or he may leave the editorial sanctum to deliver an oration heard round the world. lRVIX G R Ll Xiay XYC may some day timl "Irv" running an international tennis match. He has clone so much for our school that we will be proud to realize our high hopes for his future hlrv" himself, tries to discourage us, howevere and says he is interested in Radio but really wishes that he could become ambitions. NILS SAHMN Here in truth is a man. Wlould that there were more like him in our school, in our country. He is the sort of student to whom one may turn with the certainty of finding enthusiastic, capable, rare co-operation. He thinks hardy acts with decision, seizes the opportunity. AN x A SeAVE'rTA The class seems to be full of artists this year and Anna is one of them. She is not athletically inclined but contributes her share. to the other side of school life. She is sure to succeed in her ambition to become an artist. LOUISE SCHAAD MQuarter"! They stop with a start. There's Lou. My how she played, for Lou is a Fine player. Besides basketball Lou likes dramatics, and we can understand why. She's just a line allsmuml girl. LUISE SCHEINER Straight, bobbed hair-bown cyes-medium height- that's Lu. Although her hobby is washing dishes you would never believe it, for she has time for school, social life, and recreation to say nothing of the Glee Club. Lu had a prominent place in the Chorus of Pepita. RICHARD SCHLOSBERG Richard is a star m at Higher Algebra, but you have to be in the class to appreciate wherein he stars. Another of the tAmhition-Graduatc', Club Richard keeps busy, as an active member, Richard also takes to Radio and belongs to the Radio Club. Richard usually has a joke for every remark and this makes him good company. l MAL'D SCHMJD lth my dearl'y W'ell, that's Maud. You may think that this would indicate that she is a person who is always worrying. Not Maud! This is one of her assets. She always has a smile for all and is so loyal and whole-hsarted that she does not take long to win the friendship of everyone. HERMAN SCHMIER He looks modest and inoffensive but states as his ambition, mDesire to trim the faculty"; perhaps, how- ever, he wants to adorn7 beautify and generally decor- ate the faculty. Well, there is some need of it! MAYBELLE SCHOPP Maybelle was in Pepita and everyone knows that she was line If there are any in the class that have never been known to frown Maybelle is somewhere at the head of the list. She is a worker for the class and has been a faithful member. 46 JOHN SCOTT We hear the words "A11 announcement by the Fresh- man Class President John Carlaftesfl Who is it that makes the awful mistake? ltJohnnyll is not only our second G. 0. President, but has been a noble cheer leader and a supporter of all activities. He is smart too, though they usually say, HXVell, he has about as many counts as anyone in the class." GEORGE S HI M M Even before he joined The Radio Club, George had the air of listening in. Perhaps he heard the distant melodious sounds of the now renowned High School chorus, Glee Club and Orchestra. Certain it is our gentle Shimm has done his part to create harmony within our hearts. RUTH SJMONS ltSquirrelll is her nickname. Whether it is because she is little or because she seems to be always hiding a smile, we dont know. It may be because she is Wise, for she belongs to the Scholarship, the French and the Dramatic Clubs. On the other hand, she is very fond of dancing and wants to become a social. secretary. ADISLINE Slum ltAddiet wants to be a social secretary and shed make a good one. During her Junior year she helped win the Volley Ball Tournament and likes athletics 'gen- erally. She attends the Dramatic Club meetings and is dramatically inclined. JAMES SKIPTON James sure is quiet, but right there in everything. It's too bad a person like James cant live in Canada-- Oh! NoleW'e mean, so he could play hockey more than he has a Chance to here. This is not his only favorite, for last November we found him playing with the Seniors. James is true blue-teven his eyes. EUGENE SMITH HSpooks"y is a speaker and a musician. He was in the Senate, the Dramatic Club and the Spanish Club and he plays a mandolin. We can add that he is interested in Radio or at least in hearing the programs. His activities, however, often tire him and so, at reg- ular intervals, he may be seen, at Loew'is. EDYT H SPIEGELMAN HToth wants to be a matron in an orphanis home. It wouldift be half had with her as matron-would it? They would have siufTing tots iii Glee Club and just piles of funicause Edyth couldn't be cross. All the multiemillionaircs would give their money to Tot's Ore phauage. LEAH STARTZ iiLeah" is not the hutterfiy sort of girl nor a grind, but rather, in between. She is a jolly companion and a good scholar. Even if you want to learn some Latin, she might be able to help you. We'll say she must have ambition! 'x'e heard that she hopes to be an opera singer. GEORGE STEERS Quiet George! Quiet, but a sure friend. ttAhe" is. a great athlete and has been true to the Class of 24. As Class Treasurer, Manager of Basketball, on the Foot- ball, Crew, Hockey, and Basketball Squads, George sure has contributed to the success of the class and the school for the past few years. More like George! ELSA STEINER W'hoa! Elsa is interested in horseback riding and certainly can ride. She gets her musical inspirations while riding;-they come much easier that way! VICTORIA STEPHEN 5 Our Class rings are line, but a solitaire is better. The ambition to he a social secretary is a worthy one, but to he a home-maker is a nobler calling. JULIA SULLIVAN You all know her, don't you? That fair blue-eyed little girl. She has lost the shyness of Freshman days and developed into a young lady who is quite able to give an account of herself. ANNA SUNDBERG From the land of Jenny Lind, Anna comes to us; a tall girl with fair hair and complexion and large blue eyes. She is very quiet, but she must be concealing her true nature, for she is One among few who can grad- uate in three years. And, she has bobbed her beautiful hair ! GRACE SUN SHINE They call her HSunny." We dont know whether it is her voice or her disposition that inspires it. She likes to dance, too, and she can draw. Sometimes she makes a pleasant and wonderful friendeonc whom we all appreciate. GEORGIA TALMEY Georgia is the petitey vivacious brunette. Last year when she won an oratorical prize we were very proud of her. She is particularly interested in the drama and in stage managing. JOH N TAPPERT itHawsii is oh, so very quiet. Maybe that is why he is such a splendid dramatist. Whatever the cause is, we know that he is a good one. His hobby is studying. No wonder he makes a success of everything; HOWARD TATE ttCharliejy is modest. He rowed 0n Varsity Crew for three years, and was the honored captain in yZ3. He was a committecmau for our successful Junior Prom. Last, he is a very clever artist, though he says, uAs an artist. I would make a good salesman for steam-rollers, in Africa." HERBERT TA YLOR In ttHerbtt we have another radio fan. This year, however, he has been right back of the class and besides serving on committees, played on the class football team and itChamph Interclass team. ttHerbisYi hobby this year seems to be Advanced Algebra and Trigonometry, but it comes pretty slow even with as good a teacher as Miss Crosby. FALcoNIzR THOMAS ttFalkiei, has attempted Crew and Football. He is a great addition to the Senate and the French and Library Clubs. He helped to make our P. 8: W. a success and is great, as an orator and actor. But this is preliminary. Because he has a passion for pulling alarm Clocks apart, he is going to be an engineer. HOWARD TOLLEY iVell here's our WV'ee'y Vice-Presidcnt. HWeey may be small but, oh, who wouldnit like to be small if he could he like him? Its no use to speak of HW'ee" in football, baseball, basketball, most Clubs, many com- mittees, in fact everything for New Rochelle High, ML:R1EL TOSTEVIN liEventually, but not now'l certainly could never apply to Muriel for the soul of punctuality settles itself comfortably in her make-up. Always cheerful, she has a most optimistic way of looking at: life. Muriel is a true sporty with a true sense of humor. All in all, Muriel is a girl of whom the Class of '24 may be proud. ROSE TROHN Rose is a small, blond girl. She is a eompanionable sort of pcrson-not too serious. Though we do not see her so very regularly, we like her. CAROLI NE TUCK Some excel in athletics, some surpass in aesthetics; some have talents for physics, others interpret through music. Fair complexion, blue eyes, charming ways; these pertain to the candidate for dramatic honors. G. ALLYN VAN VVINKLE It's a good thing KtRipll didnlt go to sleep flve years agoy for we would not have been able to enjby all his talent. It is doubtful if he would ever have become Business Manager, if the class had known he would turn out to be such a robber. Whenever anything new is started in school Rip's in at the beginning and work- mg for it like mad all the time. Why he put the Pep in Pepita. THERESA VAUGHN liTeall is tall, and we all seem small beside her, but she sure doesnt make us feel so. HiTeayi is always calm, and is never excited except in rare instances. A good deal of her interest is centered in the school but, not to make life a drudgery, she allows some of her time to llBoysfl Her ambition, strange to say, is to get a ticket from a New Rochelle copl Better watch out now, the new law is passed! 51 RAYMOND XVALLACE Ray is a jolly good fellow, as nobody can deny. He is able to make friends easily; this is due largely to his personality. Ray is there with a smile and is willing to help you out in any pinch. HENRY W EIL His hair is parted in the middle and plastered down around a laughing face. He wears trousers six feet around, at the ankles. itFritz" hopes to be an illus- tratori In our class we had him on the track squad, in the Senate and Spanish and Dramatic Clubs and we know he is a HRadio Bug"; on Friday we look to see if he is playing his Eddie. AUDREY WELLS Audrey is a tall girl with chestnut brown hair and eyes. She is quick of wit with a delightful sense of humor. Yet she doesnt allow hLuck" to take complete possession of her; as evidence, she is a member of the French, Spanish and Scholarship Clubs. ROLAND WEsER Care free, full of fun, and always pleasant! We have him as ttRollieF Independsnt, self-possessed, a dicta- tor! We have him as captain of the County ttChampsii in football. He plays a hue game of basketball too, and besides all this, belongs to the Spanish and Library Clubs. Last, when it comes to oratory, he cannot be surpassed. CALDWELL tYHiTING hCOlIiEH is a dark, lanky and bashful fellow who is best known by his trying to keep that wild and unruly hair in place. He is very much interested in radio and thinks nothing of getting California almost every night. He likes athletics and besides being 011 the Class Foot- ball team this year, he was Assistant Track Manager last year. 52 ELEANOR XVILCOX Eleanor is another boleed-hair girl. 15 she a bandit? Well we don": know. She says her hobby isehorses. VVe-well we doult say. We know we shall miss her from the Dramatic Club and the French Club and from the Class 0f ,24. HOPE WILLIAMS Hope belongs to so many clubs that she has time only to drop in now and then on the Scholarship Club. v But she is by 110 means HHopeless,y for her ambition is to become an interior decorator. LOUIS W'oow Everyone remembers Little Red Riding Hood while but few have had the honor of knowing the llWoolf." W'ell this Woolf had a habit of charming beautiful young ladies and is not at all unlike our Louis. Louis has a dandy eye, not alone for the ladies but also for a basket. This accounts for his ability at basketball. We canyt predict What Louis will become but he will no doubt be a howling success. All photographs taken by Odin.

M.:New York Police reports. 7:00 P. M.eAddress by John Lewis, HHistory of the Class of 1924 of New Rochelle High School? 2 N R4. Just a minute, please. This is station 2 N R4. You have just listened to the very interesting police reports given weekly at this station. Our next number will be the History of the Class of 1924 of New Rochelle High School by John Lewis. He has delved into the annals of the history of his Class . and the results have been such that we feel sure that our large radio audience i would consider it a privilege to listen to the fruits of the historianls research. Mr. Lewis will now speak to you. HLadies and gentlemen of my unseen audienceel marvel, as I stand here for the first time, to think that this instrument into which I am speaking will carry my message to listeners all over the United States and even across the Atlantic. It is far beyond the scope of my time to relate all the details of the class of 1924. The results of my research have proved so extensive that I can present but the barest outline. Mm-m-m. In September, 1920, some three hundred and fifty aspiring Freshmen entered New Rochelle High School, all rejoicing over their good fortune in being students of so great a school. They were a brave lot and faced manfully the abuses and humilia-tions which is the lot of every Freshman. However, they soon learned the ropes, settled down to business, and over came all difficulties. Before their Freshman year was over. they had already shown of what stuff they were made, and clearly illustrated that they would be heard from in no uncertain terms before another year was over. They organized good football and baseball teams, but their most noteworthy act was their Victory over the class of :23 in debating. W'hether winning or losing, they learned their lesson in every battle. This helped them to become better fitted to assume a more active part in activities of New Rochelle High School. The next year this same class, now Sophomores, began early to continue the work begun so nobly the year before. They chose James Aimone to lead and in- spire them, and a wonderful leader and inspiration he proved to be. Judging from their success in athletics and scholarship, and their activity in all other organizae tions, it might be said that the Sophomore class did much more than can reasonably be expected from the average Second Year High School class. The Sophomores undertook the work of teaching the green Freshmen the ways and manners of New Rochelle, just as they were taught the year before. Their inspiring slogan, HGallant Freshmen, we need ye, we need ye, 0 how we knead yefl uttered trippingly on the tongue of every Soph, was a thing to be revered and respected by every first year student. Of course, the Frosh realized it was hall for their own good? They realized, too, that if they would wait another year longer, their minds and bodies might become stronger and they also could take up in their turn the important work of the Sophomore class. 54 . During their Junior year the Class of 24 came to the front with a bang. They started work right by electing the right officers, men who were capable of leading and controlling them. Jerome Brady was president, and Alexander Query, vice-president. Early in the year twelve Juniors competed in the Prince-Junior Speaking Contest. These students inspired the entire school, and every contestant received rousing Cheers for his efforts. In this event Georgia Talmey and Helen Hebbard ruled supreme and reaped the reward that belongs to the victors. The Juniors, quite properly, did not conhne their entire attention to matters pertaining to scholarship. Besides supplying the varsity football, basketball and baseball teams with many competent men. they were able to add to their laurels by winning the interclass baseball championship. The school year was officially closed by the great event reserved for the Junior class. Every Junior romped and skipped, with great frivolity to the reedy moan of saxophones, and the tinkling of pianos and strumming of banjos, all com- bined to produce the syncopated harmony of the local musicians. ' The fourth year marked the reign of John Carlaftes, under whose guiding spirit the Class has co-operated wonderfully well, Howard Tolley, Dorothy Price and George Steers were elected to fill the other ofhees. The social activities of the class started in a very promising manner. The Senior dance; one of the best in the history of the school, took place on Thanksgiving Eve. Besides its great social success, it set an enviable record in its financial returns. The school owes much to the Senior Class for its wonderful support of New Rochelle,s first Championship football team. ,24 was in back of the team from the very first game, supplying players, Cheer leaders and rooters. The Seniors that formed the backbone of the team were Captain VVeser, Playing Manager Car- laftes, Brady, Creaturo, Herron, OlConnor, Steers and Tolley. These proud wearers of the gold football are worthy representatives of the Class of 124. Most of these men, with addition of Brennan, Ellis, and Tate, upheld New Roehellels honor on most other helds of battle for many years. Such names as Marjorie Ballin, Marjorie Clark. Helen Hebberd, Alma Ladenburger, Bernice Metzger, and Dorothy Price will always be associated with girls, athletics. In winning most of their games this year, the girls have shown that they can be as successful in athletics as the boys. The cordial, friendly relations that exist between the Seniors and the Faculty have been fostered by two outstanding events. The first was the Senior Faculty party, and the second was the Senior Faculty basketball game. These events were of great value, because they led the students and the Faculty to become acquainted in a social way, not possible in the routine of the daily work. The other great successes attributed to ,24- were the Senior Play. Class Day and Commencement. These were all taken care of with the usual efficiency peculiar only to ,24. As the class of ,24 nears the day when it must leave this school, it is with a sense of keen regret that they realize that they can no longer enjoy the benefits of, nor give their best to, the school that has prepared them for their future work. They have come to love New Rochelle High School, to see her needs and to fulfill them, and to hold her up before the entire world. For four years New Rochelle has upheld ,24. May ,24 uphold New Rochelle High forever.H 55 LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF THE CLASS OF 1924 We, the class of 1924, being perfectly compos in the mentis and having a strong hunch that we are about to go away from here, do hereby make known to the well-known world our last will and testament, making all former wills null and void, nil and not.

Elsewhere The Saturday Chat SOCIETY NOTES Semi-Amiual Reunion of 24 Those of the famous class of 24 of N. R. H. S. who are now in this vicin- ity, got together for the entire week of June 3, for a house party at the beau- tiful estate of C. Howard Tate, the well-known portrait painter. His es- tate, situated as it is among the rolling hills of the Catskills, presents a won- derful picture with its spacious lawns bedecked with beautiful flowers and graceful trees put there by the world famous horticulturist, John Carlaftes. Throughout the week many sports were enjoyed; horseback riding, an au- tomobile trip, an aeroplane ride, swim- ming and boating. The last was taken care of by the well-known yachtsman, Murray Decker, with Mr. Tate as his llcrew;u But soon, far too soon in fact, the week ended. On Saturday night a farewell dinner was tendered the guests, each in turn saying a few words of leave taking. One thought that was prominent in the minds of all, and which tended to lessen the seriousness of leave taking, was the looking forward to the reunion that was to take place in the winter.

All thru the history of the present Junior Class, high scholarship, true sports- manship, and real school spirit stand out as the ideals. Because of its enthusiasm, the Freshman Class Of :21 was, allowed to organize rather early, electing as officers, James Caldwell, President; Jessie W'enck, Vice- President, and Else Kauzmann, Secretary and Treasurer. As Sophomores, the class was successfully piloted by Marshall Swearinger with Jessie VVenck as Viee-President; Betty Karr, Secretary, and Virginia Cook, Treasurer. ' It was in its Sophomore year that the Class of ,25 began to win its fame. When it came to awarding cups for the various interclass athletics, it seemed as though the ttSophsi, were walking away with all the honors. In football, both boys and girls basketball, and girls, baseball and tennis, they won the champion- ships. In hockey they tied with the Seniors for first place. IN September, 1921, about four hundred Freshmen embarked upon the sea of The outstanding event of the year was the famous Sophomore party. How- ever, this party was not the only successful accomplishment of the Class of ,25. It had the honor of being the first Sophomore Class to edit an issue of the Purple and White. At the beginning of this year, the members of the Class 0f 25 elected as officers: Joseph Nesbitt, President; Betty Karr, Viee-President; Anna Peterson, Secretary, and Else Kauzmann, Treasurerm The Class still upholds its ideals and its members show as much enthusiasm as formerly. Usually there are two leading events in the Junior Class, the Prince Junior Declamation Contest and the Junior Prom, but this years Class can boast of three. In addition to these two events is a concert given by the Hamilton College Musical Clubs under the auspices of the Class Of 225 and under the supervision of Mr. Handy, the Class Adviser. 63 SOPHOMORES r SOPHOMORES W HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF ,26 CC OW well give a big ackalacka for 01d 26? and the master of cere- bi monies led the rousing cheer, while the alumni present followed.

We are from all the schools in the city, the public, private, and parochial schools. In January we were joined by a large number of students from XVaverly School, Tuekahoe, and also by many of the Class of 26 who sought our companionship. T HE Class of 27, numbering about 480, is the largest freshman class in we were allowed to sleep late, and go to bed early, but the freshmen 01 next year are certainly welcome to these so-ealled privileges. Late in September, we formed a splendid football team. Then came cross country; the freshmen showed their ability by winning three places on the team. Our basketball team showed their ability in games with the other classes. Last, but not least, came baseball; a team was organized, and next years varsity may contain a few of the Class of 27. Thus ended our activities in athletics. The Freshmen became augumentative, so we re-organized the freshman de- bating society, or the House. we elected a president, Gladys Drake, but she resigned and Edward Stork was elected in her place. The Scholarship Club received freshmen whose records were unusually good. Over 9570 of the Class of ,27 patronized the General Organization, showing our school spirit. With the knowledge already acquired, we shall recall with pleasure those freshman days. 67 EXECUTIVE COUNCIL OF THE GENERAL ORGANIZATION EXECUTIVE JOHN SCOTT, President CELESTE AIMONE, Secretary STANLEY EDMONDS, Vice-President WINFRED H.

O. AY by day the conditions in the New Rochelle High School are getting D better. What is producing these conditions? The G. O. In the after- noon when others have long since forgotten school cares and worries, the G. O. council takes up its duties and plans ways to make school life better and more profitable for the student. The G. O. council takes care of all matters per" taining to school that do not deal with athletics. Matters having anything to do with the latter are referred to the athletic committee composed of: the athletic members on the council. In this way everything is given careful consideration and is well managed. If there are any who think that the Council members do not take their posi- tions seriously they are mistaken. For every member realizes the honor given him and to show his appreciation works hard and faithfully doing what he thinks would be asked of him by the Class and student body that he represents. The council is composed of the President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. Also the Principal, Dean, Boys and Girls Physical Director, two faculty non-athletie advisers, six student representatives of athletics and six of non-athletics and one representative from the Purple and XVhite. The G. O. has appointed a trafflc squad again this year to avoid conjestion in passing from the classes and it has worked equally as well as last year if not better. There are members of the trafhc squad stationed at each end of the halls, on the nrst and second floors to see that students only pass down the end stairs, while at the top of both girls and boys, center stairs, there are also traffic mem- bers stationed to see that students only pass up these stairs. The co-operation of the students is certainly to be commended, for they are always ready to keep to the rules of the traffic squad and use the stairs desig- nated for passing in that direction. Then, too, a monitor system has been established. In the basement at both girls and boys, end, monitors are stationed each period to a110w no one to enter without a slip designating where the student is going and signed by some teacher. By this means the Freshmen are kept out until the proper time for their entrance. Then, on the hrst and second Hoots, a monitor is stationed in the center of the hall to act as a guide for visitors, and to see that the halls are kept cleared. Every- one must show a slip or go back to the room from which he came. By this system, the halls are kept cleared during periods so that there is no noise outside of the Class room to distract the attention of the students. It is hoped that some day an honor system will be established by this organ- ization. That day will certainly be a lucky day for New Rochelle High School and I am sure it will not be far off. Other schools have tried it out and it has been both successful and delightful to students and faculty alike. thy cannot New Rochelle, then, show that she can successfully launch an honor system? 69 ATHLETIC COMMITTEE OF THE GENERAL ORGANIZATION A. A. Council. In place of this council we now have an athletic committee which attends to all matters pertaining to athletics. This committee is com- posed of the president of the G, 0., the principal of the school, the dean, both the girlsi and boysT physical directors, two Senior athletic representatives, two Junior athletic representatives, one Sophomore and one Freshman athletic repre sentative. At the first meeting Nesbit Cockburn was elected chairman and Alletta Morton, secretary. The meetings have been held the fourth Monday of each month and a great deal accomplished at them. The committee makes appropria- tions to carry on athletic activities and votes on the awarding of letters to team members who are recommended by the coaches. The committee has provided a permanent plan whereby Cheerleaders may be elected. It is the custom to present annually a list to the G. O. designating the major and minor sports. They are as follows: MajoreFootball, Basketball, Baseball, Crew, Track. MinoreHockey, Cross Country, Tennis. The Athletic Committee has been active and its year a most successful one. BEFORE our G.

BARBARA GIFFORD FACULTY ADVISERS Miss Carpenter Miss Gariepy Mr. Godfrey Mr. Durfee Mr. Bragdon HE membership of this club is composed of students having an average of 85 per cent or above maintained for two consecutive months. The ideals of the organization as expressed in the pledge are Hhigh Scholarships, par- ticipation in school activities and sportsmanship and fair play in principle? The club meets on the second Thursday of every month, and at the second meeting after the midyear examinations the eligible Freshmen are admitted, this year 56 in number. Special programs of interest have been presented at the meetings. Each year the Club has had charge of an assembly. This has generally taken the form of securing :1 worth while speaker. This year the club was fortunate in bringing before the school Dr. Adler of Adelphi Academy, an officer of Cumland Society, an honor society of secondary schools. In 1923 the club gave a banquet and it hopes to give something even more elaborate for 1924. Since the Year Book goes to press before the final enter- tainment takes place, it is impOSsible to give all the details. However, if you were not there, you missed it! 74 THE LIBRARY CLUB HIS third year of the Library Club has been a most successful one. Early in the year the club presented the moving picture "Les Miserables? Later different members of the club Visited the high school libraries of Pelham, Scarsdale, Mount Vernon, Bronxville, W hite Plains, Yonkers, and Hackensack, and reported on them in the club meetings. These reports proved most interest- ing and familiarized the members with other libraries than their own. Another event for the club was a trip to the New York Public Library at Forty-second Street with Miss Lawson. This was both entertaining and instructive. The biggest success of the year was the annual party at which games, dancing and refreshments were enjoyed until a late hour. In February an important business meeting was held, at which several amendments to the constitution were adopted. These were tU that the club membership be limited to fifty, tZl that members failing to attend three meetings in a term without an acceptable excuse should automatically lose membership, Ga that members should receive pins only after eight periods of work in the library, and pins may be purchased only to replace lost ones. These amendments have been accepted by the G. 0. Council. During the year the Club members have also learned the library work, as each member has assisted at the desk at some time during the year. Altogether, this year has been a most progressive one for the club, which is looking forward to continuing its good work next fall. Already several of the first year students have become interested and are helping in the library afternoons. 75 THE FRENCH CLUB Frangais and you will have numerous opportunities to converse in this language. This club strives to make the French language more real, he study more interesting and the use of it more natural to the many students of French in the school. It also attempts to direct their attention to the daily life, customs, history, literature and art of the French people. All this it accomplishes in its meetings. A number of regular meetings are held each year at which the business of the club is carried on and a program of entertainment provided by a number of the members. These meetings are eona ducted 'in French and the audience converses in the language of moliere. At present the Club is planning a social gathering and a public entertainment to in- terest outsiders in the work of the club. However, the activities of Le Cercle Frangais have not been confined entirely to this school. The Club has been a part of the National Alliance for several years, and has also interested itself in the work of building the American Memorial Hospital for the French wounded at Rheims. To this latter cause the club has given generous support. Le Cercle Franeais is actuated by a high purpose which it accomplishes more successfully each year with the assistance of its faculty adviser, Miss Ketcham. i 76 CC PARLEZ-VOUS FRANCAIS ?n If you do, be sure to join Le Cercle THE SPANISH CLUB Mr. Flaherty as faculty adviser. The purpose of the club is to stimu- late interest in the language, customs, history and literature of Spain, and the Spanish speaking countries of South America, and to give the students practice in speaking Spanish. Last year there were only a few meetings and thus little could be accom- plished. This year, however, the meetings have been held each month and the large attendance has been notable. Several playlets have been presented, mem- bers have given talks on the value of Spanish and the Spanish Club, and excellent musical selections have added to the programs of the meetings. At one meeting the program was composed of numbers given by the different Spanish classes. We hope that each year ttEl Circulo Castellano" will grow better and larger. CC I :L CIRCULO CASTELLANO!, was organized in March, 1923, with 77 SENATE HE Senate is a wide-awake organization founded for the purpose of furthering interest in debating and public speaking in the three upper Classes. In the past the only business carried on at the meeting was some form of debating, and this tended to make them more or less uninteresting except to a certain few. This year, under Mr. Jackson, the new faculty adviser, wonders have been accomplished. The Senate has undergone a great change. The weekly meetings are now inspiring and are not devoted solely to speaking and debating During the past season the program committee arranged for numerous outside speakers, who came and entertained the members. At one meeting a good jazz band added spirit. The various officers and committees who, together with Mr. Jackson, directed the Senate during the past year are: Jules Levine, President; Lewis Pinto, Vice- President; John Haas, In, Corresponding Secretary, and Herbert Borgzinner, Recording Secretary. The membership committee consisted of Mortimer Furtch, Herbert Borgzinner and Rebecca Klibamow, and the program committee of Porter Lee, Bob Rooney and Ralph Heyman. XVith Mr. Jackson as coach, the Senate has produced two excellent debating teams this year. If you wish to belong to a live, Wide-awake organization, join the Senate. 78 THE HOUSE OFFICERS EEWARD STORCK, President KATHERINE W'EST, V ice-Presidcnt GERTRUDE CODELLA, Secretary HE House was organized in the fall of 1922 for the Freshmen. At this time the school was divided, and the first year Class members were in school during the time scheduled for Senate meetings. This new Club was necessary in order to give the Freshmen opportunity to take part in debating. During the fall and winter it was almost dark when school closed, so that it was thought best not to hold meetings after school. Meetings were therefore held during the flfth and sixth periods. However, this did not allow a great many who were interested in debating to take part since they were in classes during meeting time. After the mid-year examinations the club voted to hold weekly meetings every Thursday after school in the music room. A debate is scheduled for every meeting and the winning side is announced by the judges. Several members of the faculty have assisted in judging and we wish to thank them for their interest. Regular parliamentary procedure is fol- lowed at every meeting. Many members are enthusiastic about giving a debate before the school at an assembly. The details are yet to be worked out. In May the last meeting of the club will take place and it is to be a party. The House has progressed under the supervision of Mr. Nichols, our faculty adviser. He has gladly given his time and interest for which we wish to show our appreciation. 79 INTER-SCHOLASTIC DEBATES OR the annual debates in the VVestchester Interscholastic Triangular League, we had a very good team. The try-outs were held shortly after Christmas. Those chosen on the teams were: On the Afhrmative, Irving Rubin, Captain; Frank Bernard, Ralph Heyman and George Korper, Alternate; 0n the Negative, Mortimer Furtsch, Captain; John Haas, Lewis Pinto and Herbert Borgzinner, Alternate. Mr. Jackson, the coach, in a conference with the coaches of the other two schools chose the question, ttResolved, That the proposed bonus bill be accepted by the United States Government? The debates were held on March 28. The Afhrmative team stayed in this city, debating the Yonkers team, while the Negative team debated at White Plains. Although both teams worked very hard and were well prepared, New Rochelle did not gain the victories. In both debates, the teams did excellently in the opening speeches, but were beaten in the rebuttal. However, New Rochelle ought to be the champions next year.. 80 THE DRAMATIC ASSOCIATION Director-MR. BARTLETT Librarian-MARY ELIZABETH HOUSTON PresidenthICK HERRON SecretaryaMARY HOLDEN Stage Manager-PORTER LEE HE Dramatic Association, under the very able leadership of Mr. Bartlett, has aroused keen interest in the students. The membership is large, and at the meetings which are held every Wednesday the attendance has been excellent. A great many plays have been read with a View to their production and their merits have been discussed with enthusiasm and Vigor. Our flrst few meetings were devoted to electing officers and outlining our program for the year. Our first venture was the production of a one-act play called nThe Boy Comes HomeV It was well cast and 21ny presented by Donald Hickok, Thomas McKean, Dorothy Edwards, Sophie Gross and Innocentia Cosentino. In fact its success was great enough to warrant its being repeated before the Parent-Teacher Asso- elation. Mr. Bartlett suggested the idea of forming a library in charge of a librarian. This suggestion was adopted. and one of the first steps in this direction was to purchase a set of books of ttOne Act Plays? These, added to the books already in hand, make us the proud possessors of over a hundred books and pamphlets. Many of these plays have been read by the members, and we are now about to enter upon the pleasant task of producing ttThe Beauty and the Jaeabinfi by Booth Tarkington. 81 SENIOR PLAY NE of the outstanding achievements of the class of 24 was the production 0 of the Senior Play. Following the precedent set by previous Senior classes a comedy of modern life was selected as the Class play. In many respects this play, nIt Pays to Advertise? excels all previous dramatic productions of the school. It did not take the audience long to realize that the play was going to be one they would enjoy up to the very end. A great deal of credit is due Eugene Smith who, though he was assigned the part late, mastered the lines perfectly and acted exceedingly well. James Lee was the lllife of the partyf, With his easy manner and comical expressions he brought down the house every time he spoke. Lydia Kitt, the tlsecretarial-sweetheart,l, was excellent both in her delivery and acting. Frank Connelly, the irate father. with his firm voice and aged manner, showed that looks are sometimes misleading, especially with a good actor. Eleanor Irving. with her French and Spanish pro- nunciation, displayed real talent. Credit is also due the minor characters who also helped make the play a success.

Ballet Dancers As in the past two years, the musical clubs of New Rochelle High School, under the splendid leadership of Mr. Nye, have combined their efforts to present to the public an Operetta. This year Hutchins and Knights Mexican Operetta, ttPepitafi was selected and produced in splendid style. Its success is attributed to the excellent oral interpretation, under the direction of Miss Shear, the brilliant Mexican costumes, the artistically painted scenery and a Mexican ballet dance, as well as to the fine singing and acting 0f the chorus and principal characters. The high school orchestra gave it a finishing touch by its perfect accompaniment. It is hoped by all who participated in "Pepitah that New Rochelle High School will be able to display its musical and dramatical ability in as successful a manner in the years to come. 83 GLEE CLUBS HE New Rochelle High School boasts of two Glee Clubs, one consisting of upper classmen and Sophomores, the other of Freshmen. The Glee Clubs total about 200 students singing in the mixed chorus style, that is, soprano, alto, tenor and bass. The large number of singers this year marks a great growth in the enrollment. This is due, undoubtedly, t0 the good music of varied and interesting quality which the Glee Clubs enjoy. Our High School has earned an enviable reputation for giving, in a highly successful manner, the opera, HH. M. S. Pinaforeit and HThe Pirates of Penzancef, This year the presentation of the Glee Clubs was a Mexican Operetta, tTPepitaf, by Hutchins and Knight. Pepita is acclaimed by far the most finished production ever staged by N. R. H. S. students, and the Glee Clubs may justly be proud of this proof of their ability. Our Glee Clubs recently participated, and won first prize, in a County High School Glee Club Contest held in our own auditorium. TVe hope this year will be the beginning of annual High School Glee Club Contests. ORCHESTRA HE development of the N. R. H. S. orchestra has been nothing short of phenomenal: Three years ago, When it was organized, it consisted of a few Violins and piano. Thanks to the untiring work and skillful direction of Mr. Nye it has grown to its present proportions of well-balanced first and second Violin sections, cello, Clarinet, saxaphones, comet, trombones, harp, drums and piano. The orchestra renders both classical and light musical selections. The sue- cess of many entertainments given in the High School has been increased greatly by the delightful and interesting music which the orchestra rendered. We look forward to the gradual inclusion in our orchestra of other instru- ments of the symphony, and hope for great things from it.

From an organization of four members it has grown steadily through the interest of Mr. Bowman, until it has now seventeen members, representng in- struments of seven different kinds. The Mandolin Club has furnished programs for the Colburn Home, the Night School, the assembly, and school organizations. 86 RADIO CLUB bers, since there are not many new members on account of the two session plan. we hope next year more Sophomore and Junior elassmen will Join to make a larger club. Next year we should like to see a member have a trans- mitting license so that the Club could operate a continuous wave set. In this way put New Rochelle 0n the Radio Map. The Western Electric Company kindly loaned the club a motion picture explaining the principle of the triode tube. The demonstration was given in such a way that anyone with only a slight knowledge of wireless could understand. A series of lectures was given and arranged so that anyone can build the simplest set up to the super-heterodyne, the worlds finest wireless set at the present time. These lectures were all given from experi- ence by members who had built and worked them. Also this year a radio corner has been started in the Purple and White, giving news of general interest to all and answering questions asked by pupils of the school. Some real DX records. have been hung by members of the club during the fall and winter. Four stations in England were heard by one member during the trans-Atlantic tests. Another member receives the western coast almost every night. Thus, this year the club; has derived much beneht and pleasure from the organization. I I lHE Radio Club this year is composed almost entirely of last years mein- 87 THE CHESS CLUB President .......................................... A ................

Little can be expected from any club during its first year, especially from a Chess club for which a very small percentage of the schoolis students can be eligible. In spite of many handicaps, the Chess Club has been able to do much important work during the few winter months. The policy of the club is one which advocates less of business meetings and more of chess playing. In the early part of the year a tournament was held, in which eighteen aspiring chess players took part. The number of men interested, and their ability, showed clearly that New Rochelle had enough material on hand to enter a team in the Westchester County Interscholastic Chess League. The five men chosen for the team to represent New Rochelle were Leon Kahn, Herbert Borgzinner, Everett Mayer, Edward Alexander and John Lewis. The Chess team was scheduled to play three matches, but two of these ended :in a draw and had to be replayed. Feb. lleew Rochelle, 2; Mt. Vernon, 2. Feb. 18-New Rochelle, yz; Mt. Vernon, 3V2.

NEUNER, Clzaimzan LUCINDA CLEVELAND, Secretary HE Business Writing Club was organized in the fall of 1921 under the direction of Mr. Neuner for the purpose of further the interest in business writing and the writing profession. Special work is done by the members in script and embossing, as well as cartoon work in the form of free-hand letter heads and hgure heads. Through this club, publicity is secured in the local papers and in writing magazines of the work in business writing in the New Rochelle High School. During the first year of its organization there were thirteen members. At the present time there are eighteen members. Lucinda Cleveland is secretary. The members are: Margaret Buckley Grace Gregory Stuart Rolfsen Vincenza Cioffari Ernest Hachman Josephine Tritto Lucinda Cleveland Edyth Keers Dorothy Vandroff Olive Day Marie Klein William Brassington Anna Dieterich Esther Mi-ttleman Albertine Paul Lucile Flaudreau Catherine Nixon Mary Zaceignini The Club meets every XVednesday and the program for the term includes ex- aminations for American penman certificates, script display work both in writing and advertising copy, printing, cartoon work, artistic designing of memorials copies. 89 THE ARTS AND CRAFTS CLUB President ........................................................ TIIYRA C. SUNDBERG Vice-Prcsidmzt .................................................. IDA XVEBBENDORFER Secretary .............................................................. JESSIE CAMPBELL HE Arts and Crafts Club was formed in the fall of 1923, under the guid- ance of Miss Engelbrekt. Membership is limited to 20, and open only to the members of the Art Department and to those who have had previous instruction in art. The purpose of the club is to study art and the various art crafts. Meetmgs are held every Wednesday afternoon. The main work of the club so far has been in enamel, leather-tooling and gessowork. The club is planning to hold an exhibition in the school library, in April, to show the rest of the school what the members can do. 90 Q Z $77! ZZZ WW; Z W M W M W W QQZx W Z w 7 LI 2; 70 x W FOOTBALL FOOTBALL 7 I !HE 1923 football season was the most successful one in the history of the High School. When Coach johnson took command, the team had already gone through the preliminaries and he immediately started on the hard work. Manager Carlaftes had arranged an excellent schedule with the first game, September 29, at Stamford. The team being nervous and the men inexperienced, we suffered a defeat which had its effect, for it settled down to work with grim determination and in the next game, with Atlantic Highlands, showed its real worth, scoring 27 points and blanking their opponents. Then came the first county game, held at Mamaroneck. In the first half New Rochelle scored six points, holding their foes scoreless. At the beginning of the second half Mamaroneck scored seven points, putting them ahead. Then the team woke up! When the final whistle had blown, the score stood 39-7 in New Rochelleisa favor. In the next game, a week later, the team beat Greenwich, 14-0. On October 27 the second county game was played, against Yonkers. They came with the idea of beating us and putting themselves in a hne place for the championship. But they were doomed to disappointment, because they were beaten, 7-0. On November 3, the team journeyed to Milford, Comm, where they played Milford Prep. Many of the regulars were out, but the team made a fine show- ing, holding them to a 14-7 score. The big game of the season was with Mt. Vernon. It was held at New Rochelle and a record crowd attended. This game would practically decide the championship and both teams were out -to win. New Rochelle won, 7-0!!! It was the most exciting game ever held at City Park, with the ball see-sawing back and forth, up and down the field, but never crossing the goal line until Draddy, after a magnificent run, took it over for the only score of the game. Brady, Draddy and VVeser were the bright lights of the game. The last game was held at White Plains. The County Seaters showed up unexpectedly strong and held us to a scoreless tie, but in this game New Rochelle clinched the championship for the first time in many years. ' The following men received their letters and gold footballs: Captain XVeser, Manager Carlaftes, Brady, Draddy, O,Conner, Huntington, Tolley, Giangreco, Creaturo, Brownell, Herron, Edmonds, Cockburn, and Coach Johnson. Medals awarded by Mr. Roberts and Mr. Maefarlahd were presented to Brady, Draddy and W7eser for their excellent work. A gold watch was presented to Coach John- son in recognition of his great work in getting us the championship. Great credit is due to those who missed out on their letters, and those 011 the second team. It was a great disappointment for us to learn that George Steers, who had starred at guard on the varsity, was ineligible to play in the last two games. Other players who deserve great praise are Eastman, Todd, Gibson, Chute, Goldstein, Nesbit and Tuck. New Rochelle p1ayed a total of eight games, winning five, losing two and tieing one. We scored 101 points to our opponents 41. Captain-eleet Draddy ought to have a great season next year, and everyone ought to go out for the team. XVe won the championship for the first time in many years, and now we want to keep on winning it. 93 BASKETBALLe1923-24 the longest and hardest schedules arranged in the New Rochelle High School for many years. With the lettermen, Brady, VVeser, OtConnor, Jacobson and Creaturo as a nucleus the team started off successfully by defeating its first two opponents. Later Concordia, Rye Neck and other strong teams were among its victims. However, close to the end of the season, by the ineligibility of a number of its regulars, the quintet was severely crippled. All through the season, the support of the school, as shown by the attendance at the games, was beyond reproach. 5 In the line-up for the next year, the names of Brady, Weser, and OtConner and MCEvoy will be missing. Nevertheless with Kahan, Allen, Graf and Valen- tine, and plenty of excellent material, an invincible team, under the able coaching of Mr. O,Brien, should be formed. The championship is our goal and there is great hope for its attainment. I I !HE 1923-24 basketball team, under great difhculties, completed one of 94 N. R. H. S. GIRLSt BASKETBALL VARSITY HIS year the Girls, Varsity has fully shown the result of Mrs. Christyis coaching by its wonderful season. Out of six games played it has won four, tied one and lost one. These games have proved that it is well de- serving of its Victories. The girls have displayed a splendid spirit of good sports- manship and co-operation in practice as well as in games. The basket shooting of Marjorie Ballin and Alma Ladenburger has been excellent. Helen Hebbati and Alletta Morton in the center have exhibited unusual pass work and the guards, Marjorie Ballin and Bernice Metzger, have worked together as one. The Greenwich game was very exciting and the score mounted point by point, showing that the two teams were very evenly matched. The biggest game of the season with Pleasantville proved to be all that Betty Cochrane, the manager, had prom- ised. The rival team had won every game of its season of fifteen and New Rochelle considers it an honor to have played with so hne a team. Those who will receive hrst team letters are Marjorie Ballin. Marjorie Clark, Helen Hebbard, Bernice Metzger, Alma Ladenburger and Aletta Morton. Jos- ephine Foster, Betty Karr, Lowen Kildare, Elizabeth McEvoy, Catherine Holby, 'Katherin Lauer, Else Kauzmann and Lorraine Sunshine remain with the school. NEW ROCHELLE OPPONENTS 23 12 White Plains 3, 18 White Plains 38 27 Pelham 37 14 Mamavroneck 12 32 Pleasantville 19 Greenwich BASEBALL HE prospects of New Rochelle in baseball this year are considered to be fairly good. A large squad is reporting at practice daily and from this it semes as if a good team will result. Baseball should have a large place in the spring sport program in N. R. H. S. and the student body should support the team in every way possible. Mr. Edward Ruhlebach, who pitched for the Chicago Cubs when they won the VVorldts Championship, has consented to assist in the coaching and that itself should be an incentive for all boys who would like to play baseball. Many students are sceptical about baseball due to last yearis failure. All that can be said is, that the team which represents our school on the ground this season is living up to the tradition of N. R. H. S. and so far has given a good account of itself. 96 CREW FTER the successful crew season of last year, there is a great deal of interest being shown by the candidates who are fighting it out for places in this years boat. It will be an especially interesting race on the Harlem River this year since we need but one more victory to gain full possession of the much coveted Kramer Trophy. Although the crew squad cannot be called promising with regard to exper- ienced material, as none of last years men are eligible to row, it is working hard under Marty Roberts, who has never yet coached a losing crew for the High School. This record has stood since 1914, with the exceptions of the years 1921 and 1922, when the coaches were changed. This year the crew was entered for the Yale Interscholastic Regatta on May 10 at Derby, and on Decoration Day in the Harlem Regatta and, true to Marty,s predictions, we came through in great style two lengths ahead of our nearest rival. The Kramer Cup is now ours to keep. 97 TRACK RACK in New Rochelle High School is generally satisfactory. The out; 100k for the spring term has even more promise than usual. Six letter- men, all of whom are sure point winners, will return from last year, besides others who lost their letter because of a few required points. With these men as a nucleus, a fair sized squad, and a coach like Mr. OlBrien, there should be no obstacle too great for this team to overcome. Besides winning the County Championship every member of the team has the Intersection and State meets to look forward to. The winner in each event in the Intersection Meet is eligible to compete in the State Championship Meet which is held later. Last year New Rochelle was represented at Schenectady by Brennan in the half mile, Del Salle in the mile, Kutner in the running broad jump, and Decker in the 220-yard 10w hurdles. These men all made a fine showing, and it is hoped that even more will represent New Rochelle in the State Championship Meet this Spring. 98 CROSS-COUNTRY 1TH the opening of the fall session New Rochelle High found the cross- country squad greatly handicapped because of the loss Of the entire team from the previous year. When the call for candidates was issued, the school, especially the Freshman Class, responded in a very encouraging man ner. After a few weeks of hard practice and expert advice from Coach O,Brien, the team was ready to start a dithcult schedule. During the season. the purple runners twice defeated Mount Vernon, twice XVhite Plains and besides, made a very creditable showing in the Columbia Meet, which was held at Van Cortland Park. Although this is not as good as the enviable record of last year, it is more than satisfactory considering that the team was made up of entirely new and inexperienced material. The five letter-men, three of whom are Freshmen, will all return next fall, and with the help of an additional few should easily win another Championship for New Rochelle. 99 HOCKEY T the beginning of the season when the hockey candidates were called together, it was found that spring graduation had deprived the team of all their letter men, with the exception of Captain Edward de Rochemont and john Carlaftes. Edward de Rochemont was the one around whom the team hinged, since he was experienced and a letter man. Indeed he was the outstand- ing star of the team, making brilliant plays, and the majority of scores in every game played this year by the team. In the Loyola game the team started at a fast pace with a lot of light so that a score was soon made. The pace which was maintained by substitutes who were continually being sent into the game by the opponents soon became too severe for the Purple and XVhites to continue without fresh men. For the last game of the season the team went to Tarrytown where they defeated a picked team from Hackley school who were credited with a good reputation for their hockey team. The team is fortunate in that only two members of the present squad will, graduate before next season and with a local rink and a little support from the school we can look for a promising season next year. The following is the schedule of the past season: N. R. OPP. Horace Mann .................... 1 4 Loyala ............................ 1 2 Mamaroneck 4 l Hackley .......................... 2 1 BOYS INTERCLASS BASKETBALL NTERCLASS Basketball this year has been a complete success. Under the new rulings the first and second teams are placed on an equal basis, and the average of. the 1'1FSt and second teams, together, is what counts in the contest There was some difficulty in running Off the games, since the Freshmen could not play until 5 P.M., and the Varsity practiced in the gym directly after school. However, Mr. Johnson succeeded in getting the games played as per schedule. The Freshmen showed great class spirit, and produced a good team. The team work they displayed in the games is to be commended. The Sophomores lacked a second team. and thereby lost out in second team games. Their first team, however, gave a good account of itself. Most of the competition was between the juniors and the Seniors: For half of the tournament, things were about even between these two teams. The Senior-Junior matches were the deciding ones. The Seniors won them, and with them the Chzunpionship. The Seniors won all their games. both first team and second team. Some Of the games were not played, since this was unnecessary. The standing of the teams is as follows: TEA M XYQN Lcs'l' STANDING Seniors ............. 1'J 0 1000 juniors ............ 6 5 546 Sophomores ........ 2 6 250 Freshmen .......... 1 8 111 1110p-juxmu VOLLEY BALL. CHAMPIONS 1924 TOPiJUNIOR BASEBALL TEAM, CHAMPIONS 1923 BOTTOM!Sopnomomc BASKETBALL, CHAMPIONS 1923 BOTTOM-SENJOR TENNIS TEAM, CHAMPIONS, FALL 1923 GIRLS, INTERCLASS ATHLETICS IRLS, Interclass Athletics for 1923-24, was a great success, and the spirit shown by the Classes in getting their candidates out was excellent. In this connection, the greatest credit belongs to the class of y25. for it showed, by the number of its candidates, not only the greatest interest. but in capturing two cups, the greatest skill. The cups for which the classes struggled so spiritedly are the result of a drive organized and carried through for this purpose by the Girls Athletic Committee of the Parent Teacher Association. Since their donations, the interest in interclass sports has been greatly stimulated, and it is hoped that that enthusiasm will endure. Volley Ball gave another cup to the Class of 25, when it triumphed in thc volley ball tournament held in the fall of 1923. There were about fifty candidates of the Class of 25, out for the team, and the following made it: . Kauzman M. Valentine . Foster F. Fenton Morton SUBSTITUTES . Sunshine M. Carlaftes . Gerfein 2 Catherine Holby . Fukushima Ruth Nebel E. May The baseball championship for 1923 was hotly contested, but the cup finally went to the Sophomore Class C25l whose team was composed of: G. Foster C. Mantorana F. Yeade, L. Dodds E. Kauzman M. Carlaftes P. Seacord C. Holbyi j. Ferry M. Valentine In tennis, the Class of ,24 won the cup without losing one match. Katherine Kaiser and Alma Ladenburger played the singles, Dorothy Price and Margery Clark the doubles. and Betty Cochrane substituted. The basketball season was a very good one, and the cup went to the Sopho- mores only after a great deal of hard work. The Senior class had a team almost as good as that of the Sophomores, and tied with them in the final match at lSHlSl although when the tie was played off the Sophomores won by four points.

HENRY JAMES! 21 in June, 1920, and elected as its first president, Frederic A. Davidson, of the Class of 1910. Although apparently a young organization, it is reallv a regeneration of an old Association of former years from which organization it draws many of its most interested and active members. Interest of the Alumni in High School athletics was the initial impulse in the forming of the present Association A proposed Alumni organization in support of that particular activ- ity broadened into the idea of a general association and a special group of Alumni labored diligently to model a practical plan for the formation of a solid and permanent organization. That plan, crystallized into the Association constitution provides, that not only graduates, but anyone who was a student for at least a year may become a member. From this membership six members of the council are elected; these are so chosen according to the constitution as to represent groups of classes from the tirst Class graduated down to the last, and together with the oHicers form the executive council for the transaction of general business. There is not space in which to detail the interests and activities of the Asso- ciation. Suthcient to say that they strive to support and aid the School and school activities, wherever and whenever possible, as well as to foster the interests and activities within the organization. This past winter an A. A. basketball team, newly organized, ran through a very fair season in the local league; losing only to the city Champions and one other team. Hopes are strong for a greater devel- opment of this sport next year, and also for the development of other activities which will draw the interest. of graduating students to the Alumni Association. The continuation of student-day friendships in such reunions as the annual Asso- ciation dance at Christmas time is what the graduate or former student will hnd in the A. A. as well as the opportunity to carry on the old spirit of loyalty and service to New Rochelle High School. 7 I iHE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION, in its present form, was hrst organized 104 ALUMNI NOTES The object of these notes is to put before the students of N.
