N conformity with custoni the ROCHELLEAN is published each
year. I t grows larger with every publication, which is evidence
of the growth of the New Rochelle High School. This growth
does not inea-n that quality has been sacrijfced for the salee of
quantityg it would be nearer the truth to say that quantity has
attracted quality. No jiner type of young 1411fl61'lCCl4'1f inanhoocl and
wonianhoocl can be found in scholarship, sports, or in social life,
than that represented here.
We earnestly hope that this survey of the school year's activ-
ities will serve to keep fresh in the ininds of those who refer to it
later in life, pleasant ineniories of their school days-days that are
full of the joy of living,

Here's our president and not a bit high hat, as everybody knows who
ever saw him. Y0u've heard of kings who dressed as peasants and chatted
in the market places with their subjects. Not many class presidents con-
descend to do that, but our "Fritz" is friendly to everybody-one reason
why the seniors had such a wonderful year. We could tell Princeton what
they're getting when they get Fred, but theyill ind it out soon enough

can say, "I used to go to school with that fellow." We, along with the rest

Sometimes our eyes become tired looking for pretty things with which to

There are very few school organizations to which Helen doesn't belong,

So our amiable Dick is going to VVest Point. A great feeling of relief
surges over us. We had feared that he was going to be a popular song
writer, and we knew all the time he was' fitted for far greater work than
that. And now we are glad to learn that he is striking as high as any boy
can. Keep up the good work, O, Dick of the ptleasant temper!

we wonder Just what she means? High School is a place to prepare for

Peggy plays the piano and is altogether a very lovely girl to know.

cut-throat competition when he gets out into the musical world. Heavens!

Pete plays a little football, habla un poco? de espanol, and sings. He
took part in our operettas and is a shining star of the Glee Club. Among
his numerous accomplishments, he says he can whistle and play the har-
monica. We take our hat off to you, Pete, and we hope our hair doesn't
come off with it, for you are the hrst we have heard who can really PLAY
the harmonica. We were going to mention his hobby of canoeing under the
moon, but decided not to.

knowing perfectly well that no one would take a cent from her in exchange
for anything. You'd give her anything she asked for-that's the way she

A poet would say, "As fair as the morning, as sweet as a blush-rose. as

plays violin. VVe think that's a rather interesting combination. He intends
to make Forestry his life work.

Carl is a happy fellow, always ready to "swap wise cracks" with you.
And he swapped many a good tackle with N. Rfs football opponents, too,
besides being on the interclass baseball and basketball teams. Altogether,
he was a worthy and valuable member of our class.

LUCILLE BERG MAN
Lucille comes from a suburb of New Rochelle, Pelham. She evidently
was attracted by the great magnet in New Rochelle Cwe speak of Loew'sD.
and hence moved to a closer proximity to it. Being interested in art, and
intending to become an artist, she naturally is interested in all the beautiful,
Therefore we are not surprised to find that she was cast in last year's
marvelous, eye-opening Pageant. Now we are surprised, because of her
interest in beauty, to find her frequently riding in Fords.

ample reward. In the last group we are greatly pleased to include "Marsh"
He has remained in the Scholarship Club for four years. Evidently Spanish
and Debating are his favorites for he also has been afiliated with HEI
Circulo Castellanol' and the "Kuarreling Klub" for the past four years. His
ambition is to do "advertising work." Vlfe are not sure whether he means to
go around sticking "Bull Durham" ads on every fence and telegraph pole
or intends to immediately become President of O. I. Gude.

One of our heavyweights. He weighs a lot in other ways besides foot-
ball. You should see him tackle an algebra problem. Lucky for the Board
of Regents that they don't have to distribute the papers themselves-one
look at Sid's he-man shoulders and they'd go back and make the exam a
little less stiff. Sid qualihes for another kind of athletics, more on the
gymnastic style: he's a pianist. At Pennsylvania he's going to study medicine.

OLINSKA BERRYMAN Genesee Normal
Olinska's nickname, Babe, does not refer to her mentality, for we'd
have you know that she was in the Scholarship Club. It refers to that region
above her shoulders whose duty seems to be to radiate happiness. For Babe,
like something else we've heard of, grew mellow in Virginia sunshine and
takes her smile wherever she goes.

Once upon a time there was a boy who did a considerable amount of
globe trotting, picked up some French and many other things Cdon't take
that the way we don't mean itj, and then came back to graduate from
N. R. High. That's loyalty to New Ro, all right. Harold thinks he will
go to Amherst. Well, Amherst has turned out one president, and in all
earnestness, we wouldn't be at all surprised if it turned out another. Don't
forget that, Harold!

this pharmacy business in which Morris intends to enter, but if you have
to use your feet much, there will be no doubt as to his future. As some-
body would say, "He,s taking a prominent part in the monstrous play 'Life,'

not doing a good turn for somebody, she plays the piano or indulges in her
favorite hobby of reading.

In spite of the fact that he comes from Tuclcahoe, George DeLong

ship Club, four years. Then, he is a violinist, debater, and radio fan. Lastly,
he excels at "ye anciente game of draughtsf' Hels planning to-pardon us,

school. Did you ever see a sweeter Senorita?

he makes the rounds of golf below par but he certainly is wa above a

Ginger is one of our most cheerful girls. She has smiled her way thru
the Regents successfully for four years and has remained in the Scholarship
Club all that time, we want you to note. Perhaps this smiling business
should be looked into, for see how many friends she has made, too. Gingei-'s
going to be a teacher, and one that you clon't meet often, if she keeps up
that pleasant smile.

Tootsie is going into business. Not such a bad choice. We can imagine
her as an efficient little business woman, making up for her lack of height
by her energy. And then we can see her snatching a day or two off now and
then, to play a little tennis, or to drive out to the ol' swimmin' hole, for
Tootsie is very' fond of swimming. She'll be able to keep her accounts
straight, for bookkeeping was her best subject.
MYRA COFFIN Smifli. College
VVe believe we should state first that Myra is a beautiful pianiste. CYou
may interpret that sentence in two ways, both of which are correctj She
belonged to a number of organizations, all of which benefited by her mem-

we have been afliicted. So the score is even. This Leon is most peculiar,
having no accomplishments and no hobbies. We suppose he spends his spare-

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
HHN the Class of 1926 entered High School it seemed at first much like
every other class that had preceded it. Yet now in reviewing its four years
of accomplishments, it can be seen that this class has had just a little finer
spirit and a little better perspective of school than any of the other classes.
In the Freshman year it organized The House, held the first Freshman Party
in years, formed a good interclass football team, won the volley ball championship
and, not forgetting its studies, had sixty-three members in the Scholarship Club.
ln the Sophomore year there was no slump in the quality and quantity of the
accomplishments of the class. The class party was a most enjoyable affair. The
girls kept up their good work and captured the basketball championship. It is
remembered that the Sophomore issue of The Pl't7'f9fC and lflflzitc was one of the
best of the year.
However, it was in the junior year that ,26 distinguished itself the most thus
far. For, after winning the volley ball championship, running off a fine party and
editing a good issue of the Purple and Wflzitc, and having done its share in Class
Day, it held the best junior Prom in years. It departed from precedent by limiting
those eligible to attend to members and graduates of the school, and by introducing
those much talked of tickets, it put on a dance that was a truly school affair of the
Remembering its success in the Prom the Class of '26 started its Senior year
resolved to make the last the best. jaqueline james, the first girl president of the
General Qrganization, was elected from this class, a distinction we are proud to
record. Cn Thanksgiving Eve it carried through to a most successful conclusion
the Senior Dance. The next class function was the Senior Play, f'Under Cover,"
which was termed by many as the best amateur performance they had ever seen.
For the third time the girls won the volley ball championship. They did not mean
to be greedy but just could not help winning. However, they deserve much credit
for their record. The year book next claimed the attention of the class, and it is
hoped that it will be as successful as its other efforts have been. V
Throughout these four years the Class of '26 seems to have admirably main-
tained the impetus of its excellent beginning. lt has done very well along all lines
of student activity, as shown in dramatics by "Under Cover", in athletics by the
girls' string of championships, in social events by the class parties, the junior Prom
and the Senior Dance, and in the Scholarship Club. Since it is the last Senior Class
that will graduate from this memorable old building, we can surely be proud of the
well-rounded record this, the Class of 1926, has to its credit.

LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF TI-IE CLASS OF 1926
E, the inimitable and supereminent Class of 1926, finding ourselves on
the brink of our sadly lamen-ted exit fr-om the dear old Alma Mater,
desire to present a few gifts, hoping that they may partly compensate for
the tremendous and all but overwhelming loss our passing on will cause. Therefore
we hereby declare this our last will and tes-tament, annulling and pronouncing void
and unconstitutional all previous promises, wills and willnots.
First: VVe bestow upon that object which has caused us joy, pain, tears,
laughter, and mental paralysis: to wit, N. R. H. S.
1. 6 miles of black crepe, 13 17f46 tons of ashes, and 32 funeral wreaths
with which to decorate itself in mourning for the Class of '26!
2. A hsh-net, collars, muzzles, leashes, kennels, and genuine, bone-shaped,
puppy biscuits, for catching and maintaining all canines found inside the sch-ool.
Second, to the Faculty:
1. VVe bequeath two quarts of Bermuda's Best -to aid them in their tearful
rendition of 'fVVhere W'ill They Go From Here, Boys ?"
2. NVe gladly, joyfuly, VVILLTNGLY return all that vast store of facts,
fiction, and fancy absorbed during our incarceration in this torture chamber.
Third: Because our sister classes have the misfortune to remain on the rack
a few more years, we, world-renowned for our nobleness, sympathy, and kindness,
desire to alleviate their pain in so f-ar as lies within "our poor power to add or
detract." Therefore we demise:
1. To the class of 1927, the honor of occupying the distinguished position
in the new school, which we would fill, if the combined forces of our all-knowing
minds and generous hearts were not too powerful for the arch fiend, Regents the
Red. VVe also leave several of our number who were so strongly attracted by that
building's beauty that they have received an unique grant from Albany to occupy
a chair in it for one year at least.
2. To the class' of 1928, the promise that no longer must they slaughter
Caesar, but may, in the Fall, find Mr. T. Cicero awaiting them with fountains of
words "full of sound and furyf' signifying something.
3. To the class of 1929, the sad news that no l-onger can they sleep until
112305 bu-t the good news that they are now eligible to join the Afternoon
Scholarship and A-Snowbal1-For-Every-Freshman Clubs.
4. To the class of 1930, a flock of electric coolers, some springless pogo sticks
and the hope that the excitement of life without a recess will not prove too great
a strain for their little minds.
Fourth: Because we feel in a facetious mood, we present to:
1. The trafhc squad: A kennel of blue-ribbon retrievers to flush and to bring
2. To the chess club: Electrified feather dusters with which to charge the
players and thus stir them into consciousness and perhaps action.
3. Mr. Handy: Another Henry Rubin to beguile the hours with long words
and flowery expressions.
4. No one in particular: Parking space for all the stray pieces of tin which
assemble near the school.
5. The proposed swimming team: Our cellar in the spring after the usual
thaw and rainfall.

his peacock quill and sighed. In the long marble hall there were innumerable
small persons with scant hair, scant wings and huge mops. On a table of
indefinite shape sat His Musical Holiness Gabriel, polishing a silver trumpet.
'KI vowf, quoth Adolphus, "keeping the Histories of the Classes in the Book
is a tedious task. It hath been with exceeding joy, however, that I have followed
the History of Twenty-seven-a truly remarkable one indeed. From mere Fresh-
men, no larger and wiser than yonder cherubs, have they ascended the ladder. For
two years one Wfilliam Lane hath been their leader. Now one Wfilliam Valery holds
the honor. As a Freshman one Dorothy Delmar was secretary, as a Sophomore
and Junior none other than vice-president. The Sophomore secretary was one
Eleanor Simonson, and she is succeeded by one Rosamond Doering.
K'This class do I find abounding in the earthly virtue of school spirit. The
members oi Twenty-seven are found in activities of every sort. And let me not

smile hovering over his countenance. r

ITH the same line spirit and school ambition that We had when we
entered the Freshman Class in September of l924, the Sophomores of
this year are still going strong.
On entering, in the year of '24, the Freshies showed the spirit they had,
by reorganizing the House, the Freshman Debating Club. They supported the
G. 0. strongly and subscribed to the P. 8: VV. in large numbers. The class
officers were Lolita Berea, President, Robert Lippoth, Vice-President, and Marian
In reorganizing this year they have as their leaders john Hartrey, Marian
Price, and Gertrude Voland -to pilot their ship of state, who with the help of
the registration room representatives carry on the work of the class at regular
Sophomore Council meetings.
Now this class of '28, starting anew, are very anxious to conquer the fields
of social and athletic fame. They have four varsity men on the football team
and a letter man and a good number on the second varsity basketball squad.
The girls, not to be outdone by the boys of their class, have a large number on
the second varsityg and Anna Lukacs, a Sophomore, has the honor of being
elected captain of the varsity basketball team, an honor very seldom gained by
In the inter-class basketball series both boys and girls have been very active,
playing the game clean, fair, and hard, and winning the praise of their fellow
school students for their fine sportsmanship, which in itself is of more value than
victory in the game.
The class put its big social event of the year over in true style. lt was the
Sophomore Party. The party consisted of an entertainment, refreshments, and
dancing. Those who were present enjoyed themselves immensely.
The class supports the Cf. O. and other organizations of the school very
strongly, and has a representation in the Scholarship Club and other societies
of the school.

N the fall of 1925 about seven hundred eager students came from the Grammar
Schools of the city to the High School wishing to be Freshmen.
The spirit of wanting to learn was unusually good, and from the start the
Class of '29 showed what they were capable of doing. School had been under way
but a short time when the Freshmen debating society, known as "The House," with
about seventy members, started one of the most successful years it has had. The
Freshmen showed their eagerness for something new by organizing the Camera
Club which has been recognized as a school club. Among the gym classes a cross
country team was formed which developed about four good runners for the school.
VVhen winter came, again the spirit of '29 came out with a hockey team formed for
the first time of Freshmen. This team played the Juniors and won.
As a result of their desire to learn, about eighty-five of the Freshmen who had
not wasted their first term in a scholastic way were elected to the Scholarship Club
after midyear examinations.
In the spring a new sport organized by Freshman boys was baseball, which had
a successful year. At the same time, boys from the gym classes went out for track,
and the track team of the school has much to expect from a few of the Freshman
The outstanding event of the year for the Freshmen was the election of class
officers: Benjamin Platt, President, Roald Morton, Vice-President, and Mildred
Kahn, Secretary. The class held successful meetings with the President presiding.
Another important event was the Freshman Party, which came off with unusual
success. In June more than two-thirds of the Freshmen moved up a step and
became Sophomores and will be the first entering class to complete the full three
years at the new Woodrow VVilson High School.
From the excellent start of this year the Class of '29, under the supervision of
the faculty advisers, Miss Upham and Mr. Crraybill, have a most promising future

HE General Organization is the medium through which the pupils become
co-Workers with the faculty in the management -of the school. Established
in 1921, it has steadily increased in influence and importance until it is
no longer an experiment but a workable and Working scheme for a school
democracy. It bridges the gulf between faculty and s-tudents, giving to many
of the latter excellent practise in assuming responsibility, thus fitting them for
greater responsibilities later in life.
The governing body, knoWn as the Council, is composed of about twenty
pupils and six members of the faculty. This Council charters all school clubs,
sanctions and supervises the social functions, and through the treasurer, a mem-
ber of the faculty, handles the nnances of all school activities.
Special service to the school is being rendered by the Trafhc Squad and the
Lost and Found Department, and other lines of service will be undertaken in
the near future. The General Organization of New Rochelle High School is
a successful example of student co-operation in school government, which is
filled with possibilities for yet greater usefulness.

ROBABLY the most important committee authorized by the General Grgan-
ization is the Athletic Committee. To it is referred all matters pertaining
to the athletic interests of the school, such as the selection of assistant man-
agers for all teams, determining the budgets for all sports, making the awards
of letters to athletic teams, deciding the division into major and minor sports,
etc. Since this committee exists by the authority -of the General Grganization,
its actions are not binding until approved by the General Grganization Council.
This arrangement provides a system of checks and balances which prevents rash
action or extravagances in the management of the athletic interests of the school.
As a result, the athletics are on a sound financial basis, each year sh-owing a
substantial balance on handg yet all teams are Well provided with good uniforms
and ample equipment. '
In former years, only boys were considered eligible for participation in
athletics, but now the athletic committee Ends its duties enlarged to include a
variety -of sports for the girls, the most popular being tennis, basketball, field
hockey, volley ball, and baseball.

HE Traffic Squad started in the New Rochelle High School in 1924.
Each year it takes over new duties for the benefrt of the school. This
squad consists of two captains, a girl and boy, elected in alternate years g
lieutenants, sergeants, and guards. The lieutenants have charge of different
parts of the school such as, halls, stairs, lunchroom, and assembly. The ser-
geants are responsible for having all the places of duty, which consist of tw-o
stations on each floor, filled during each period. The duty of the guards is to
be sure no one passes through the halls during periods without a pass. By this
method classes are n-ot disturbed by students passing through the halls. The
traffic squad is one step nearer student government, which has worked so suc-
cessfully in many colleges and is now progressing rapidly through the efforts
of the General Organization and Trafhc Squad in New Rochelle High School.

HE Trafhc Council was established in l9Z5 for the purpose of trying all
cases of those persons who in any way violate the rules of the Traffic
Squad. The members of the Council are appointed by the President
of the General Organization and consist of a representative from each of the
following: girls, boys, General Grganization, and Traffic Squad, and also a
faculty adviser. This Council does not aim to punishg it aims to help. Wfhen
an offender is brought up for the first time, if his case is not too serious, he
is given a warning and perhaps s-ome office on the squad whereby he may help
to correct others who are making the same mistake as he did. After he is brought
up a second time the Council inflicts punishment to a degree seeming most appro-
priate to them. The Traffic Council hopes to insure co-operation between the
students and Traffic Squad.

General Organization. A
As provided by the Constitution, boys who were recommended by the
Faculty for outstanding service to the school were admitted to membership.
A special pin has been designed for the club, and the members are n-ow enjoy-
ing the privilege of wearing these pins. Pins are to be sent to the alumni members
of the club.
Although the club is an Honorary Club, its purpose is to promote high
ideals and sportsmanship and to he of service to the New Rochelle High Sch-ool.
A great deal has been done in this Way, especially in the girls, gymnasium.
The most important thing accomplished this year is a special reward system
for girls obtaining a certain number of points in athletics. This has to be
approved by the General Organization. lt is hoped that a similar one for the
boys will be adopted.

HE Scholarship Club has been steadily growing until now it is one of the
largest and most active organizations in our school. The four classes of
the school are all represented in its membership, but the Freshman enroll-
ment of eighty-three members stands out above the rest.
The club has this year lived up to the standard set in previous years. lt has
had speakers come to talk before the members at the monthly meetings. Certain
members of the club also have given interesting talks. Some other plans which
have not been completed before this book goes to press are a presentation of
Tony Sarg's Mari-onettes in "The Pied Piper" and "Treasure Islandn to be
given on May l, and a Held day in May, which is to take the place of the reg-
ular monthly meeting.
HIS year has proved to be a very successful and progressive one for the
Library Club, under its adviser, Miss Lawson. The first event of the
season, the presentation of the movie, "The Goose Hangs Highfi was a
great success. Then came the annual party, which all heartily enjoyed. Groups
of the members have visited the New York Times and Heralld-Tribmze plants,
which were both instructive and interestingf Sketches from various books have
been given by the club in assembly. The last of the social gatherings, which
took place early in june, was a picnic, where games were played and supper
was served in true picnic fashion.
Last year the club contributed to the scholarship fun instead of presenting
a gift to the school. Having enjoyed ive years of activity in New Rochelle
High, the Library Club is looking forward to many more in the new Wfoodrow
VVilson High School.

HE Senate is an organization founded for the purpose of developing interest
in debating and public speaking.
Members of -the Senate represent New Rochelle High School in the
annual debates of the Westcliester Triangular Debating League, composed of
teams from the high schools of New R-ochelle, Yonkers, and 'White Plains. The
question for this year was, "The VVestchester County Charter Should Be Adopted."
The debates this year proved of unusual interest. The League tried out a
new plan, the English C0xf.ordj debating system. At each of the three schools,
the affirmative was made up of one speaker from each schoolg the negative team
was similar in organization.
Jack Kahn, Rebecca Klibanow and Beatrice Saqui represented New Rochelle
High School on the afhrmativeg Helene Nieschlag, Henry Lewis and Richard
Thursfield on the negative. Albert Mayers served as alternate.

game of queens and knights, and kings and castles-chess is flourishing
within the prosaic walls of New Rochelle High School.
The constitution of the Chess Club was approved by the General Organi-
zation in 1923. Since then the membership has grown steadily. Several per-
sons interested in learning how to play the game have been taught by the members
Two tournaments have been playedg one in the fall to select its chess team
and another in the spring. The latter participated in a handicap tournament.
The Chess Club is grateful to Mr. Hussey for his interest in the Chess Club,
and to Miss Lawson for her permission to keep a set of chessmen in the library.

Quartet in the Christmas assembly program with Christmas songs. Another
feather was added to the cap of New Rochelle High Sch-ool when the 1926
operetta, "The Bells of Beaujolaisf' was produced in the auditorium, which
was crowded to capacity by most appreciative audiences. The operetta was a
complete success and the participants may well feel proud of their efforts. This
club took part in celebrating Music Week by presenting a very interesting pr-o-

its participation in the VVestchester County Music Festival, May 2l, l926.

HE picture shows the instrumentalists in our school who play as members
of the junior and Senior orchestras, made up of thirty and forty-five
players, respectively, The instruments represented are violin, viola, lcello,
bass, flute, clarinet, oboe, saxophone, trumpet, horn, trombone, drums, and piano.
The orchestras meet for practise once a Week and play at assemblies, for
operettas, at concerts, music week festivals, and at numerous other public events.
As is to be expected, the plan for orchestral study is educational, the pupils
receiving training in the playing of good music of varied types ranging from
symphonic compositions to lighter pieces, all of which prove to be of much
interest to the players and the student body of the school.
It is with great pleasure that we note from year to year -the steady growth
of this element of our school musical activity, one which is far-reaching in its

year due to Miss Wees's illness and prolonged absence. In February,
however, Miss 'Clary became the adviser and plans Were then made for
the rest of the year. The usual monthly programs were resumed. At the March
meeting, Miss Stuart, the professional coach of the high school, gave an interest-
ing talk about her actual experience. The April program consisted of mono-
logues and papers on the development of the drama, given by different members
of the club. At the last meeting a play is to be presented but the selection has
not been dehnitely decided upon as this goes to press.

one of the most successful offerings.

purpose of fostering track and field athletics. Each year a high jump
and pole vault pit is made back of the school by the members of the club.
This gives the opportunity to the pupils of trying their ability at this type of
sport. The club has written several letters of congratulation to alumni of the
school who have achieved Worthy feats in college. In the library of the school
they have placed an album with pictures of members of the past and present
track teams -of the school. They are now working on a list of all the past and
present school records. For the coming year the club is planning a large banquet
at the close of the track season. The club is now considering a series of indoor
track meets during the winter months.

HIS year, the staff of the P. St VV. Bulletin has been constantly striving
for two things. First, the editors and reporters have endeavored to attain
more perfection, journalistically, in regards to the general appearance of
the paper. Secondly, and perhaps more important, they have tried to make each
issue more interesting to the students than the preceding number.
Among the year's inn-ovations are listed cartoons, the "poisonal and anti-
dote" column, farce articles, open letters, and discussions, both editorial and
general on current topics of school interest.

THE SCHOOL LIFE WE ADORE

The tardy pupils' roars,
The bells, and the shuffling of feet,
The friends we turn to greet,
Form the school life we adore.
The feelings of dismay,
VV hen we hear the teachers say,
"You may now recite,',
Or "That's not quite right,"
Form the school life we adore.
The feelings of relief,
Wlieif we've almost come to grief,
O'er work done none too Well,
And rings the dismissal bell,
Form the school life we adore.
The assembly's Weekly call,
Looked forward to by all,
The joy that always greets
The music and other treats,
Form the school life we adore.
Our victory songs and cheers,
Resounding through the years,
The censure, advice, the praise,
Moulding our future days,
Form the school life we adore.
But now we Seniors find
VV e must leave these joys behind,
And with a mournful sigh
Must turn and say "Good-byel'
To the school life we adore.

HE Annual Senior Dance was given by the Class of 1926 in the Mayflower
Auditorium on Thanksgiving Eve. The Senior Dance is an annual school
affair given in the fall by the graduating class. The committee this year
worked very hard to inake the dance surpass all given in past years and feel that
they have succeeded, both socially and nnancially. It was held on that plan inaugu-
rated by the class when they gave their Junior Prom last year, and everything was
done to make the dance one that New Rochelle High School couldube proud of
G. O. DANCE COMMITTEE '
N March a committee, consisting of David Crampton, Chairman, Jacqueline
James, Peggy Fahy, VVilliam Lane, Anna Lukacs, Roald Morton, Helen Ren-
nicks, and Harrison Harper, was appointed, and began preparations for the
Second Annual G. O. Dance. Under the direction of Miss Shear, faculty adviser,
the date was set for April 30. '
The gymnasium of the High School was beautifully decorated, representing a
Spanish setting. The committee deserves special credit for the novel way in which
balconies hung with shawls were used to help gain this effect. This committee
attended in Spanish costume, and added quite a touch of color. A tango exhibition
by Kenneth Anderson and Margery Ferguson was the feature of the evening. Six
girls, under the direction of Mrs. Christie, gave a dance also. There were several
feature dances with prizes besides the foregoing. About one-hundred and eighty
people attended the dance, and everyone enjoyed himself thoroughly to the strains
of the Monterey Orchestra.
Although not a financial success, due to the extremely low price of admission,
the committee deserves the thanks and commendation of the school for the work they

HERE are dances and dances, but the biggest and the best social event of
the year is the junior Prom! This is the one time when the alumni can
be with us, and with studies behind us we can thoroughly enjoy the good
time promised to us by the committee. The Class of '27 which has often shown
its worth in many ways, is already planning through its capable committee under
the able leadership of Vlfilliam Morton and its advisers, to hold a Prom unrivaled
by any ever given in the school.

UE to the delay caused by the death of Mr. johnson, the 1925 football
team had a late start. The beginning of the season found us with
but three letter men and a squad of about sixty candidates, green but
willing to learn.
The team lost i-ts first game to East Orange on October 10. The next Sat-
urday, the team, having well recovered, defeated Fordham Freshmen 6-O with
the aid of VVilliam Morton's trusty toe.
On October 24, we won our first county game -on one of the muddiest and
muggiest days of the season. - The home town by the mud Hats found them-
selves badly walked on with a score of 20-6.
The morning of the Yale vs. Army game at New Haven, the New Rochelle
seconds were defeated by Milford Prep 17-O. The game gave good experience
to a great many green players. That afternoon the greater part of the squad
saw Yale defeat the Army in the Bowl at New Haven.
November 7, with Yonkers, marked the second county victory for us. The
Purple and White was victorious in one of the closest games ever held at City
The following Saturday, before one of the largest crowds in Westchester
football history, the Purple and White went down before the greatest and best
coached football team that Mount Vernon has ever produced.
On November 21, the crippled Purple team again were defeated, this time
by White Plains.
By way of conclusion, the 1925 season has been a success in two ways:
First, it afforded experience for a great many players Who will be in school next
yearg and second, the season was -the greatest success financially that New Rochelle
has ever experienced. Althoughlthis team failed t-o win the championship, it is
one we shall long remember.

HERE has been an abundance of splendid baseball material this year.
Its quality has even surpassed that of last year's team. With the excep-
tion of Hayden, all last year's veterans are back for another season. As
never before, half the candidates were Sophomores. The team was, at iirst, in
sore need of pitchers, but Nardozzi, a new-comer, has already shown his ability
to pitch. Hartrey has been found an efficient catcher, while Maxwell plays better
than some of the letter men. Mr, Greeley has been coaching the team for a
short time, yet in three days he accomplished what any other coach would have
taken a month to do. He has wonders yet to 'accomplish with a team composed
of Howard, de Rochemont, M-Orton, Huntington, De Paul, Brown, Hartrey,
Maxwell, Laurence, Palumbo, and Rotundi.
HE favorite motto of "Marty" Roberts, Crew Coach, would seem to be,
"Tempus Fugitu. Since the hrst work-out in the middle of February,
"Martyn has been utilizing every minute in an earnest endeavor to turn
out a winning combination of oarsmen. This task has been made difhcult through
a lack of proper material, although two letter men from last year's boat have
helped matters considerably. A fine second crew has been developed, which
furnishes keen competition for the Varsity boat.
The Yale Tnterscholastic Regatta at Derby has been discontinued, and in
its place the crew is scheduled to race Kent School at Kent on May 8.
'With the uncertainty of the schedule taken int-o consideration, it would
be foolish to predict much at this early writing, but whatever the outcome, the
crew has done its utmost to bring added laurels to the coach and to the school.

TARTING with only one letter man from larsit ye1ar's team, Kahan, the
Basketball Team won two and l-ost four of its preliminary games. After
the exams, with Captain Graf eligible, the games of the Wfestern division
of the W. I. A. A. got under way. New Rochelle was beaten in all of these
games, landing in fourth place. The two games with Mamaroneck, the corres-
ponding team in the Eastern division, were well played and resulted in victories
for New Rochelle, the scores being 22-20 and 2l-16.
If the team had been as well supported at all the home games as it was at
the last one, nothing more could have been desired, but the attendance at most
games was small. The shortcomings of the students in this respect were made
up by the perseverance and good sportsmanship of the players and Mr. O'Brien's
The following received first team letters: Captain Graf, Kahan, Lof, Blei-
weis, T rotman, Hartrey, and Rosenbaum. Of these, Kahan, Hartrey, and
Rosenbaum, as well as the wh-ole second team, will be back next season, so New
Rochelle may expect to be near the top instead of the bottom in l927.

HE Girls' Basketball Team has this year brought home an undefeated team.
It has broken all the records made in previous years. This year the girls
have defeated Mt. Vernon twice in the same year. This has been made
possible by the untiring Work -of our coach, Miss Kriete, the co-operation of
the girls and their willingness to do what should be done.
Each year the aim of the team has been good sportsmanship, team work,
and a victorious team. In previous years good sportsmanship and team work
have been achieved, but this year we have added a victori-ous team.
Too much praise cannot be given to our coach, Miss Kriete, for her untiring
work in securing the co-operation of the girls which has helped to develop such
a hne team.
The following girls have made their first team letters: Captain Betty
McEvoy, Captain-Elect Anna Lucacs, Beatrice Saqui, VVilma Ballin, Mabel Rich-
ards, Ruth Porter, Katherine Blood, Hilda Price, Margaret Stahl, and Faith
Searles. The others received second team letters.

EW RGCHELLE High School Cross Country Team of 1925 ranked high
among the cross country teams of the state. Starting with only two
letter men, another of the squad of 1924, and the rest new men, the team
soon developed and won its first race, defeating, among others, Gorton High
School which was considered the strongest team in the county, at the Knights
of Columbus Field Day. In the New York State sectional race the team
obtained six places from the first seven. The team then travelled to Syracuse
to compete in the New York State Championship. Considering the long trip
and an unfamiliar course, the team did fairly well. In the Columbia Interschol-
astic race Captain Doyle duplicated Jimmie Craig's CCZZQ feat in placing second.
The Westchester County meet saw New Rochelle High School suffer defeat
from Gorton High School who had been improving steadily. However, the
team fared very well during this year, owing to the un-tiring efforts of Coach

HIS year once more New Rochelle turned out a Hockey Sextet which
rivaled the best that the state was able to produce.
Under the able leadership of Captain de Rochemont and with the
assistance of Mr. Charles Weber and Turk Smith of the Knickerbocker Hockey
Club, New Rochelle entered upon another ice season, which gave fame and glory
to the members of the team.
Five games were played, two with Greenwich, two with Mamaroneck, one
with Riverdale, one with Hackley, and the final contest with Schenectady for
the state championship. The Purple and VVhite Sextet was vict-orious in all
seven contests. The one for the championship went to New Rochelle by a score
of two goals to none.
Among the men who comprised the team were: Captain an-d centre de

HE Tennis Team has great prospects of a successful season. Most of the
last year's letter team was lost by graduation, but through the untiring
ellorts of Coach Smith we hnally have developed a well-balanced team.
The team of 1925 hung up an enviable record, winning six out of seven
matches. Among their victims were Riverdale, Horace Mann, Concoria, Pelham
and Yonkers. Pleasantville, Gorton and Mamar-oneck have been added to the
schedule, making the iight much harder. In former years New Rochelle has
always been represented by strong teams and the student body means to keep
up the good work. Approximately thirty fellows have been reporting regularly
for practice, which means the forming of a good? team next year.
BOYS' INTERCLASS BASKETBALL
Coach ..................................................,...., MR, DANIEL P. O'BR113N
I-HS year, under the able supervision of Mr. O'Brien, the interclass games
were a great success. Each class was represented by three teams and
the average of the three teams determined the championship. The cham-
pionship was captured by the Juniors, Winning 2l out of 22 games. The Seniors
and Sophomores showed great class spirit and turned -out teams which gave a
good account of themselves. Most of the competition was between the juniors
and the Sophomores. The Soph-omores had a very good team and gave the
Juniors a good ight.
The following boys received their numerals:

race for the cup was very close. Both the irst and? second team results were
taken into consideration, since each class had its two teams which played
against the corresponding teams of the other classes.
In addition to the regular tournament games, the Iuniors went over to Vlfhite
Plains and defeated the County Seaters' junior team in a game which not only
showed the Purples' excellent playing ability, but also Miss Kriete's coaching

HE baseball tournament of 1925 was won by the class of ,26. The Soph-
omores were eliminated in the very beginning by both the Seniors and
the juniors. The fight remained between the Seniors and the juniors.
Their game resul-ted in a tie of 9-9. Two extra innings were played with the
Seniors at the bat. The last inning resulted in a score of O-O with the juniors
at bat. -
The best hitters were up-one out, two out-surely the game would go to
possibly another inning. No, the juniors got busy with two strikes and three
balls, then a nice grounder, runner reached second base, next batter sent her
home. The game was over with the juniors in the lead and champions of Inter-
class Baseball for 1924-25.

OUR years ago Interclass Volley Ball Tournaments were stanted. The
Freshmen, Class of '26 were the first champions. This year, the girls of
the Class of '26 won the silver loving cup for the third time, having lost
it to -the juniors in their second year. So many girls came out for volley ball
that two teams were formed from each class. The Sophomores and juniors
started the tournament off. The Sophomores won three out of four games from
the juniors. The juniors then lost four games to the Seni-ors. The Sophomores
also bowed down and forfeited the four games to the Seniors. There were sev-
eral girls on the Senior team who had made the team for the fourth year. They
received number 19's with their 26,s, thus bringing honor to their class as the first
in the school to have won number l9's. The following girls won double numerals:

HE Majors' Club of the New Rochelle High School was organized in
September, 1925, by Mrs. Christy, with the aid of the acting majors of the
upper class gym periods. The purpose of the club is to develop efficient
leaders, and to further the girls, athletic activites. The A. M. Majors' Club was
so successful the Hrst term, that it was decided to organize a second division for
Freshman sections with Mrs. Amis as faculty adviser. Both clubs meet once a
month. Work is done by committees chosen by the president. The key committee
restores all lost keys to their proper owners, the gym uniform committee returns
unclaimed uniforms to the owners, and the locker committee is responsible for
keeping all lockers locked. The upper class section has an advisory committee
which acts as a guide to the Freshman Club.
Although these organizations are still young, they have been very successful
in assisting .the settlement of difhcult problems of student government connected
with physical training classes. The clubs are working hard to establish honor and
to produce good sportsmanship and leadership among the girls, not only in the
gym, but throughout the school as well.

FTER the beginning of School in September, tryouts for cheer leaders were
held. These tryouts were conducted by having the candidates lead the Fresh-
man gymnasium classes.
Finally, a squad of five was selected, This squad began its work at the footf
ball games where a great deal of spirit was aroused. At the basketball games, how-
ever, the crowds dwindled and little cheering was done. But, with a winning baseball
team and the attendance at games increasing, spirit once more will be aroused. At
track meets, crew races, and tennis matches, cheer leaders will be present.
The squad wishes to express its appreciation to Mr. O,Brien for his interest
and ine co-operation in making the cheer leader's squad a good one.

There looms a-light in the distance
Of days and years spent at school,
Of times spent in classes and hall-
Of books, of pencils and rule.
There appears again in the distance,
A light, but of different hue,
Reponts and calls to the office,
A card with red on blue.
And as I recall the laughter
Of 'the boys and the girls in the
The light grows brighter and
Around Alma Mater walls.
ERNEST NACHER, 26.
NEW ROCHELLE HIGH SCHOOL
It grieves us much to leave thee,
Oh school that brought us cheer,
The lessons that you taught us,
Wfill be forever clear.
If we are loyal, wise, and true,
And fit to face all foes,
These qualities were gained through
Their worth we'll never lose. -
They,re as a lamp unto our feet,
Their brilliant beams will blind de-
And help us win life's War.
EDITH CICCIONE, ,26.
