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.
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?
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
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
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
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.
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 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!
"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

has faced this goal steadfastly during her four years in
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
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.
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.
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!
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-
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-
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.
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 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.
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
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 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.
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.
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.
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-
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.
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.
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
"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 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.
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 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.
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 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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? 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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
It was nKitte Fitzll they called her

With an artist, doctor, lawyer,
How she did it. no one knew.

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.
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
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.

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.

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.
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

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

night a farewell dinner was tendered
the guests, each in turn saying a few

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-

the history of our school. 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.

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?
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.

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!
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.
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.
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.

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

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
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
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..
THE DRAMATIC ASSOCIATION

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-
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
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.

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.
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.
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
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.

HE Mandolin Club was organized in 1922 for the purpose of giving to its.
members pleasure as well as practice in playing plectral instruments.
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.
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.

active organization. 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.

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

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
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.
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
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
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
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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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
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.
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:

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
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:

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
. Sunshine M. Carlaftes
. Gerfein 2 Catherine Holby
. Fukushima Ruth Nebel
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.
The winning team was composed of:
G Ltardx C enters
Hilda Price, Captain Ruth Porter
Jessie Skefhngton Katherine Blood

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
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.
