With the famous educated toe of our Class president missing from the
football team, Mt. Vernon will be playing us on almost equal terms
from now 011. But liBiIll, has not confined himself to athletics. He
has done more than his share to make the work of the class of 527

RALPH THOMAS LAYCOCK Columbia
For a person who doesn't like work, and is as fond of sleeping as
itToots" professes to be, he has succeeded in leaving quite a record
behind him. If you donlt believe it, just take a look at his activities
or ask anyone in his class, as every Senior can tell you.

Dot needn't inform us that her hobby is dancing. One glance at her
would be enough to prove that she is as skilled in that as in all her
other accomplishments. Popular? Just ask anyone, for everyone
knows her and to know her is to like her.

ARTHUR M. ALVORD, JR. Princeton
Moody has taken quite an active part in student government, both for
class and school, as his record shows, besides managing the suc-
cessful 1926 football team. We fear his habit of belonging to
governing bodies will ruin his career and lead him to be a mere
congressman or a cabinet member.

HENRIETTA MARIE ABEL Packard
'tNock" starts our list with an ambition worth talking about. She is
determined to go to Europe after she leaves Packard. Whether
it will be as private secretary to the President of the United States
or on her own, she has not yet decided. Somewhat doubtfully she
says that history is her Choice for a favorite subject. She has
served the class well 011 the various athletic teams.

CLARA ELIZABETH ARCHER Pratt Institute
Clair is steady and she has always been right in back of the class when
it came to interclass athletics. She is a 'tbluist" and maybe that's
why she is going into the dress-making trade. Her perseverance
and good humor should help her along any road.

THEODORE ARCHER Colzmzbia
HTed" is a lively, dramatic youth, who by his good nature and humorous
expressions, has helped to make school most interesting for his
Classmates during the last four years. As his desire to be am his-
torian is quite in keeping with his choice of history as his favorite
study, we are looking forward to the time when the name llArcheir"
will take the place now occupied by itElson'l in the library of the

rider, not to mention being able to produce 1004K; banking rooms,
which is an accomplishment worth cultivating. She says she has
110 ambition, but we guess she's just modest; for she looks too
promising for that.

FRANCIS K. BECKER Cooper Union
Francis likes chemistry and has succeeded in staying whole during his
course in it. His hobby is hiking and camping, and he is also an
Eagle Scout, which is something! If his ambition comes true,
and it ought to, he will be selling us Becker's Fuseless Fuses, and
will bear the sobriquet, "The Electrical King?

There is no doubt that she will reach the footlights with a piano
as her means of conveyance, although she will not admit any
unusual talent in that line, Other than her choice of school.

To be a chauffeur is the unusual ambition that "Bennie" cherishes. This
person with the unusual taste is going to be a writer, but she
declares that her favorite class is gym, Writer or no writer,
Marian is bound to get there. She's steady, dependable. has an
enviable record in her studies and a smile that pops up just when
others are ready to give up. Blue, John Erskine, and fnotball
games are her color tiavoritel, writer and hobby.

JOHN BERGER Columbia
John has won recognition as one of the leading class musicians by his
unequaled performance on the school's Duo-art, but music is only
his hobby. He is going to study medicine and surgery and intends
to become famous as a surgeon. Knowing his way of doing things
we feel sure he will succeed.

MEYER H. BERKOXVITZ Calzunbia
Meyer also claims the nickname, t'Berky," which leads to some eon-
l'usion. Meyer is another of the allefamous senior basketball teaini
He is going to be a lawyer and can play tennis. and this is a good
combination. He also possesses wit, and when you dorft laugh with
him, you laugh with his brother.

he sure was a master hand at physics. We hear that laughing,

GEORGE BIXLER Prinrcfon
Unless he is manager of one of the big league baseball teams, Bix will
probably be the worlds greatest stamp-collcctor. Perhaps he will
be both, for when his collection is worth a million or so dollars
he will be able to buy out one of the teams. Think of the passes
to the games his friends can get then!

We have quite a few pretty girls in school this year. one being Hazel.

can imagine pleasant things in store for her, providing that she
doesn't follow H. R. H. the Prince of Wales in horseback riding.

F, CATHERINE BOOKER BI'UFICI'OI'I Nomnal
This girl has a total of seven possible nicknames but we'll leave them
to your imaginatimi She is evidently quite Spanish. for she plays
tie guitar and, like Columbus, her ambition is to go XVest. She
also cantides that she gets considerable Cross-countn' practice ruil-
ling after trolley cars.

She likes bridge, 01' at least says She does. We wonder if the liking
extends to these big out-of'door men called civil engineers who
build them? She is interested in music and intends to go into the
trade, or is it the art? Good idea. for civil engineers are par-
ticularly susceptible to music. we hear

XYhen Brassie gets into Real Estate there will be some action in the

the Florida boom seem like a strawberry festival in a small-town

excitement that he wants.

ADELE HERMAN BROXVN
Here's someone who has sense and appreciates a good thing when she

ALEXANDER BROWN Foz'dlzam Law

Cheer Leader. 3, 4; Crew, 3, 4, 5.
This young miss is rather quiet and many of us do not know her as
well as we would like. However, we all know of her remarkable
achievements in the line of intelligence tests and vocabulary quizzes,
where her name nearly always heads the list. She has been a
member of several of our clubs and helped a great deal. She wants
to train for some special work tit has such a long name we can't
remember i0, which she is certain to enjoy.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
ACK in the fall of 1923, tive-hundretl-odtl freshmen came together for the
B lirst time in the old high school, and were organized into the class of 27.
At that time, no one would have ever guessed what a distinguished record
this class was destined to make. However, it is doubtful if there has been another
class that has equaled it in range of activities and degree of success. A strong
statement but nevertheless true as this record will prove.
As Freshmen, it sprang into existence under a lucky star. That fall, our
football team beat Mt. Vernon for the first time in several years. Not content
with leaving everything to its lucky star, the class organized a football and a
basketball team which did well in interelass competition. XYhen, after inidyears,
it had shown that it was determined to stay with the school. Hill Lane was elected
president. and the Class sent its usual large quota to the Scholarship Club. The
freshman issue of the Purple and VVlzitc that year was also nothing to be
In its Sophomore year the class still had confidence in Bill Lane, and was
beginning to wake up to itself. The second teams of all sports were crowded
with Sophs who were later to show what they could do on the hrst team. The
Sophomore party that year Was a big success. The girls came across with an
interclass championship in basketball which they maintained for three years.
There were Sophs on the P. tk XV. and on the debating team. The class was
beginning to make itself felt.
Valery took the helm as Junior president. Ten out of seventeen letter men
on the football team were Juniors, getting valuable experience for the next year's
work. Five out of nine letter men in cross-country, two out of seven in basket-
ball to say nothing,r of almost the entire second team, and large representations
on hockey, tiack, crew, and baseball teams. The boys won the interclass chani-
pionship in basketball, and the girls repeated their performance of the year
before. It was the Juniors who at this time started the agitation that has since
led to a vastly improved school publication. The junior party was successful
and the Junior Prom worthy to betthe last ever given in the old high school.
This year saw the juniors leaders in everything, and their activities in the C. 0.
Council, their innovations in assembly announcements, and in fact their innova-
tions in every line made this year one of the most noteworthy in the school's
Bill Morton was given the task of guiding the class through to a glorious
finish. XVith a Veteran team. the team again gave a Victory over Mount Vernon
to the school, in football. and with other veteran teams proceeded to trounce our
ancient rivals in almost every type of contest and in a manner never before
equaled. In basketball. both boys and girls maintained their Championships.
and the girls annexed two or three more in volley ball and tennis. The qu'frlc
and Ierzifc evolved into the best newspaper the school has ever had; debating and
other non-athletic activities rose to unprecedented popularity. The class made
a radical and decided change for the better when it abolished ltBaby Dayii and
put in its place "Senior DayU which embodied all the best features of Baby Day
and incorporated several new ones. The Senior Play of this year was another
success. Individually and as a class Twenty-seven set new records in scholar-
ship. It was a Senior year. Senior ideas were everywhere. and Seniors and
Senior inHuenee were everywhere else. The result was the best year ever,
athletically, socially. and ttintellectuallyfl
In the new high school the Class of Twenty-seven was the first to be grad-
uated, and as the first, it has left a record that will be hard to equal. It has
added much to the tradition of New Rochelle High School, and as it leaves,
the class hopes that this record will serve as an incentive to the succeeding classes,
guiding them to even greater accomplishments in the service of their Alma Mater.

IGHT from the start of our humble beginnings as Freshmen two years
ago, the Class 0f 29 has been cobperating with a real zeal which bet-okens
ascertained successi In our First year. under the guidance of Benjanmn
Flatt, president. Roald Morton, Vice-president, and Mildred Kahn. secretary,
the House and a Camera Club were organized, members were admitted to the
Scholarship Club. and successful class hockey, baseball and track teams were
formed. The season was Closed with a party which nearly all attended.
This fall we continued the good work by electing Roald Morton president,
Donald Knight viee-president, and XVilliani Rennie secretary. Nearly all the
organizations in school boasted of having Sophomores as members. We were
well represented in the Scholarship Club, and Purple and White staff. The
year was again ended with a party, even more successful than that of last year.
The class of 29 has responded well to athletics. and our representatives
were on the squads Of all sports. Although none of us were fortunate enough
to enjoy the Florida trip, several second team letters were won in football.
Basketball was even better represented, and besides winning several letters, both
boys and girls came forward with successful class teams. In hockey not only
were two varsity letters won by Sophomores, but Roald Morton was elected to
captain, next year's sextet.
Thus it may be seen that we have not been backward in making a name for
ourselves and in setting a standard for other classes to follow. And, since during
the past two years we have been growing more and more important from now
on the other classes are going to take the dust of the class 0f 29!

other duties in connection with the orderly conduct of the school, for example.
the supervision of the corridors during recitation periods. The centralization of
all funds raised for student activities in one treasury is one of the fine accom-

HE meetings of the Senate this year were characteristic of the avowed
I purpose of the organization. Unlike, perhaps. its natural prototype. it
engaged in little legislation. The Program Committee, however, headed
by Miss Helene Nieschlag, provided for considerable debating. A series of inter-
elass debates was held. In these debates, the members of the class not competing
acted as judges of the protagonists of the other two classes. The subjects for
debate were selected; with a View toward avoiding bibliography, thus giving an
opportunity for original thinking. Such questions as Regents, Modern Adver-
tising arid the Policy of the Purple and White were discussed. These debates
resulted amicably for all in a triple tie among the Classes.
Pins were ordered by many members of the Class. The eighty per cent eligi-
hility rule was strictly enforced without apparently affecting the number of names
on the roll book.
After the last session of the Senate, a reunion was held in the form of a
party in the girlsT gym. The Senate looks forward to great things. With the
school's newly formulated debate policy, providing four major debates each year,
and putting debate on a par with athletics and dramatics, the Senate will undoubt-
edly continue to be looked upon as one of the most honored societies of the school.
TRIANGULAR DEBATING TEAM

in New Rochelle High School than any other occurrence has done in
years. On that night the Mount Vernon High School team was defeated
in one of the most brilliant debates ever given in the auditorium 0f the Junior
Recognition of the work of the team and of the Adviser 0f Debating was
not long in manifesting itself. The Sfandard-Star in an editorial congratulated
them. The Superintendent of Schools in a letter to the Adviser in Debating
stated that he hoped that even greater emphasis might be placed in the Hvalue
of training in argumentation as a useful element of high school education?
Then by some Vigorous action this ideal was rendered a reality. XVith the support
of the Board Of Education and the liberal aid of one of New Rochelle's spirited
citizens the following debates and awards have been provided:
1. Annual Senior Class Debate, with awards of fifteen dollars and ten
dollars in gold.
2. An Annual Junior Class Debate, with awards of nfteen dollars and ten

This year the Bureau consists of three committees, namely: The Book
Committee, which receives all lost books and returns them to the heads of the
respective departments; The Locker Committee, which patrols the locker rooms
to see that 110 lockers are left open, and hnally, The Staff of the Department,
which cares for all lost articles and serves as a clearing house in its efforts to
return them to their rightful owners. .
The Lost and Found was originally put on its feet by Mrs. Christy. This
year much praise is due Miss Jones through whose efforts the Bureau has become

HE Radio Club was reorganized at the beginning of the school term after
a few years of inactivity. Its purpose is to further the interest of the
students in the finer points of radio reception and transmittion. To become
a member of the Club one must pass a code test.
During the meetings talks by individual members relative to radio commniu-
cation are given. The talks started with the explanation of the most simple forms
of receiving and transmitting apparatus, working up through the study of the
more complicated apparatus of radio telephony. The members of the club have
built a receiver and power supply involving the latest developments in reception.
The club is indebted to Mr. George C. Cannon for his gift of his high
powered radio transmitter. The tower room has been set aside for the equip-
ment, and it is hoped that installation will be completed in the near future.

F HE Local History Club is one of the recent activities which the students
have supported this year. Its primary purpose is to stimulate an interest
in the early as well as the more modern annals of New Rochelle zmd VVesb
Chester County. During the past few months several interesting speakers, well-
read and active in the historical research of our city and county, have addressed
the club, each dealing with a different phase of local history. One of the features
of the club is to make pilgrimages t0 the various historical'sites. Among the
active committees of the club is the Library Committee which is afhliated with
the school library, and takes care of all the material and books pertaining to local
history. Through the efforts of the Program Committee several very good
programs have been presented by members of the Club. Interest has been made
most keen by the inducements offered by Mr. William A. Moore, President of
the Board of Education, in the form of prizes for essays written by Juniors and
Seniors of the high school on qWestchester County in the Revolution--1776.,,

HE Dramatic Association, with Miss Barbour. who came to the school in
February. as faculty adviser, is functioning under a new constitution and
with a limited membership. Aided by a membership committee and with
the Senior Play cast, understudies, and Junior Contest speakers as a nucleus, the
club has attained a membership of fifty.
The Association hopes to inliuence the entire student body to read good
plays and to become intelligent theatre goers.
The regular meetings, beginning in March, were concerned with Eugene
OlNeill. George Bernard Shaw, Sir James Barrie, and John Galsw-orthy.
In May the club attended the Theatre Guildls production of Shaw's Pygmalion.
It is the hope of the Association that membership will become much desired
and won only through dramatic or executive ability evinced in play production.

HE Camera Club, although a new organization, is one of the most rapidly
growing clubs in the school. Its purpose is to create an interest in phottr
graphy; to teach its members how to. take artistic pictures; landscapes,
interiors, close-ups, etc,; and to instruct the members; in the art of developing
and printing. Under the capable supervision of Mr. Hussey the club is pro-
gressing rapidly in fulfilling this purpose.
The new camera has already been used by the club. quite a number of pie-
tures having been taken. The club is now engaged in making a collection of
pictures of the new school. Some of these were published in a booklet sent to
La Rochelle, France. The club members hope to gain sufficient experience from
this enterprise to enable them to become the ohieial photographers for next yearys
and the succeeding years, TTYear Books?

HE Majork Club of New Rochelle High School was organized in Septem-
ber, 1925, by Mrs. Christy with the aid of the acting Majors 0f the upper
1 class gym periods. The purpose of this Club is to develop efficient leaders
and to further the girls, activities. The club meets 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 t0 the owners; and the Locker Committee is responsible for keeping
all lockers locked. The Majors, Chosen for their leadership abilitythave assisted
in selling the tickets for many of the athletic events of the year.
Although this organization was inactive the first term on account of the
unlinished building, it has been very successful in assisting in the settlement of
difficult problems of student government connected with physical training classes.
The club is working hard to establish honor and to produce good sportsmanship
and leadership among the girls.

to bring to the attention of every boy that there is a good chance to make
good in track even if he has never run before. A publicity committee headed
by Milton Harris has put posters throughout the school, which have helped con-
siderably in creating interest in track this year. The members have also dug
jumping and pole vaulting pits on the side of the school this spring. Several
dinners have been planned to which the members are eagerly looking forward.
There are at present about Fifty men in the duh.

HE Literary Supplement of The Purple and VVlzife has featured many new
ideas in the past year. It has carried no advertising and thus has contained
much more reading matter. The covers have been made more distinctive
and more art work has been used than heretofore.
The number of contributors to the magazine has steadily grown, indicating
that there is more interest in it on the part of New Rochelle High School students.
The staff has constantly attempted to make the magazine more attractive and
varied. An article by a Faculty member has appeared in each issue and the iden-
tity 0f the authors of the first two of these was made the subject of a guessing
contest. An unfmished story contest was also held.
The staff believes that it has done at little toward making the school publica-
tions represent the school. XVith a continuance of interest and support from
students and this yearts start, the Literary Supplement should rank with the best.

was the Annual Senior Dance. It took place -on Thanksgiving Eve in our
splendid new gymnasium. The concensus of Opinion of those who attended
was that no nner. more enjoyable dance has been sponsored by a Senior Class..
The Class of 1927 feels justly proud of its success.

was first given in 1895. Probably no one has ever written more clever nonsense
in a more beautiful and polished manner than Oscar W'ilde. The play is full of
delightful quotable lines that are a constant joy, and W'ilde's caustic Observations
on society are as true today as when he wrote them.

myriads 0f lanterns illuminated the scene. The walls were covered by beauti-
fully painted panels, it being said that the decoration was better than any of
the former dances. Everyone who attended this dance enjoyed himself. It may

the several chorus periods for the Glee Club to represent New Rochelle High
School at 3 Teachers, Convention held at the Hotel Pennsylvania. This was a
very successful debut for the year.

XVith one rehearsal at week the orchestra is able to play at assemblies on
Mondays. The compositions range from symphonic works to lighter pieces. The
orchestra played this year for the Operetta nIn Areadf and at the Senior Play.
The orchestral activity is an educational one, and at the same time gives
pleasure and entertainment to both performer and listener because of the variety

HE Trafhc Squad is the executive division of the Student Government Plan.
The Squad, as it has been Changed by the G. 0. Council, now consists of
one captain, a lieutenant for each department, two sergeants and six guards
for each period. The Captain is elected from the Senior Class at the beginning
of the fall term. He has the power, with the consent of the G. 0. Council, of
appointing the lieutenants, who are each responsible for :1 department under the
Squad. The Traffic Squad has Operated with success for half a year under this
new p1 an.
Purple and White eleven made for itself throughout the country will last
in the football annals of our school. The prospects were none too bright
when the season opened. Coach McKenna tdok hold of the squad, however, in
his characteristic style. and in a few weeks the boys began to shape up into what
looked like a football eleven. Not one of the student body had the vaguest idea,
however, that it would develop into the mighty machine which swept all before it.
John Denny was chosen Captain and the team made ready for its Opening contest
with the strong Peekskill High School team.
On October 2, the Peekskill eleven bowed to the superiority of the Purple
and thitels attack; and it was then that the fans began to realize that New Rochelle
High was to have a real football team.
The following week the boys and the Coach journeyed eighteen miles to
Riyerhead, Long Island, where, although tired out by the trip, they were able to
vanquish their opponents by a 9 to 0 score.
Stuyvesant High team of New York City was the next opponent of the
Purple and XVhite team; the boys turned in another Victory for the school when
they defeated the New Yorkers to the tune of 6 t0 0.
On October 23, New Rochelle opened her County League Schedule by
defeating the Yonkers High School team by a 13 t0 0 score. The Four Horsemen
Morton, Hartrey. Valery and Fairweather galloped t0 the lirst league victory
for the Purple and White.
The following week New Rochelle played the weak Pelham Memorial team
and the latter bowed to the Purplels superiority by the overwhelming score of
01 to O.
Mamaroneck High team was next on the schedule; they too went the way of
the rest of our opponents and were defeated 25 to 0.
On November 13. the day of days arriyed, the day on which New Rochelle
was to meet their traditional rivals, Mount Vernon. The rivalry was to be more
l'een this year owing to the fact of both teams being in the lead for the County
Championship race. How Bill Mortonk trusty toe sayed the day for the Purple
i: already known: suffice it to say that after one of the toughest battles of the
season. the New Rochelle team emerged yictoriotls by a 3 to 0 score.
On Saturday, November 21, New Rochelle gained the County Championship
by defeating the thite Plains team by 21 score of 18 to 0. New Rochelle rolled
up a total of 162 points to their opponents 0.
In recognition of their splendid record and as a mark of appreciation, the
citizens of our city began to formulate plans for a post season contest to be played
in Florida. Two games were arranged to be played; one on Christmas Day at
Tampa against the Hillsborough High team; and the other on New Yearis Day
against the Orlando High School team. On December 21, the team boarded the
steamer Arapahoe: landing at jacksonyille three days later they went immediately
to Tampa, where they were given a royal welcome. The first contest against
Hillsborough High team resulted in the hrst defeat for the Purple, the score beingr
33 t0 0.
In the seCOnd intersectional contest with Orlando, the New Rochelle boys had
by this time become somewhat accustomed to the climate, and as a result the team
defeated their Opponents by a 3 t0 0 score.
The boys immediately embarked for home, arriving a few days later at New
York, where they were welcomed by Mayor Badeau and many prominent citizens.
THE football season of 1926 is now history; the wonderful record which the

seventy-flve candidates reported for duty under Coach ttBilYy McKenna.
For a few weeks he worked with the entire squad, and then gradually cut
down the number, until now he has under his direction about twenty-flve capable
ball players. Although there are several letter men back from last year, the
majority of the material retained is made up of Juniors and Sophomores. They
are fast rounding into winning shape, and although the team has successfully
opened its season by defeating the Hastings nine, Mr. McKennats aim is a cham-

OR the past two years the New Rochelle High School crew, through no fault
of its own, has not been bringing home trophies. The Race on the Harlem
had been discontinued and worthy foes were not to he found in our Vicinity.
This year, however, prospects are very bright, for we row in two races, one
at Pelham Bay on April 23rd against the strong Columbia Freshmen Crew, and
one at Philadelphia, in the Henley Regatta on May 28th, against representative
crews of the country.
llMarty Robertsli is again on deck, and utilizing every available minute to
whip candidates into shape. The Varsity boat will have experienced men as well
as new men aboard, and the second crew is sprucing up to give any needed support.
The crew of 1927 has expectations of adding to the great list of trophies
won in former years by successful crews of our school. Let us all get behind
this year,s crew with the fond hope that its members will bring the first crew
trophy t0 the new high school.

beat White Plains in their armory and Mamaroneck at home. We defeated
Pelhani and White Plains, but lost of Gorton, Port Chester, Mount Vernon,

D to be of championship caliber. A good schedule was arranged, but poor
ice caused the postponment of most of the games. The annual contest with
Greenwich was an easy Victory for the Purple and XVhite by a six to nothing
score. Hackley was beaten by a last period rally of four goals by six to three.
Roald Mortone goal in the second extra period downed Mount Vernon by one

in front of the Maroon goal during the entire game. Dawson, Scott, R. Morton,

will be able to live up to the example set by our former teams. At any rate, the
team has great prospects of a successful season. for a. large squad, including seve i211

BOYSt INTERCLASS BASKETBALL
HE hrst year of inter-class basketball played in our new gym was a great
success. Under the capable direction of Mr. O,Brien, the games played
among the three classes were executed brilliantly.
A new principle was carried out this year. Only games played between the
first teams counted as percental score for the championship. The senior flve, last
yearts Champions, pushed their colors to the front again this year by winning
fwe out of six games played. The Sophomores took second place, one game
behind their fellow upper classmen, and the class of '28 brought up the rear.
The players on the senior teams are: Crampton, Captain; Levene, Meuller,
Berkowitz, Palumho, Lasus. Shuman, Sheahan, R. Rose.

sports on a par with basketball. The council is composed of the faculty of the
girls physical education department and six students; one from each class being
elected by all the girls interested in athletics and one appointed from each Class
by the physical directors.
The representatives from the Senior Class are: Juanita Nafe and Maria

were two instead of one team for each class. Both Senior Alphas and Junior Betas
received their numerals; but the latter because they had won more games than
the Seniors received the cup provided for the winning team.
The Interdass Basketball Tournament 1926-27 has just closed one of its
most exciting and successful seasons. Under the new system, the girls were
divided by weight into two groups. From these two groups four teams were
chosen to represent each class. At the end an "All star class teanf, was picked
to represent each Class. After the Sophomores were eliminated the first game
between the Juniors and Seniors resulted in a tie. Is was necessary then to decide
the tie by two out of three games. the Seniors coming out victorious, but only
after hard fought games.
The girls on the team are: Helen Hansen. Louise Herzog. Ellen Zacharias,
Beryl Herz, Ruth Davis, W'ihna Ballin, Maria Chapman, Rosamond Doering.
Captain, and Lucine Kroyer.
The girls of 26 showed up in their true colors by winning the interclass
baseball cup after a very Close contest last season. The Junior girls were
runners up but were finally downed by the Seniors. Since the champions were
Seniors and are not now in school, there is no group picture of them in our
possession, but these girls can be remembered for their athletic skill. The champion
team was composed of: Mabel Richards, Captain; Margaret Stahl, Manager;
Clara Archer, Beatrice Goldstein, Rebecca Klibanow, Kay Lauer, Mary Maher,
Elizabeth MeEvoy, Beatrice Saqni. The teams were coached by Miss Dorothy
ROBABLY no activity in the school has received so little appreciation as
Cheerleading. There is not a doubt but that cheerleaders are absolutely nec-
essary. This was very evident this year in View Of the fact of the numerous
football rallies as well as the large attendance at all football games. The cheer-
leaders also rendered valuable services at the basketball games as well as at
track and baseball games. In the following years when basketball becomes more
popular and when our new athletic field is completed, we are sure that the cheer-
leaders will receive the merit which their efforts and ability deserve.
The cheerleaders wish to take this opportunity to express their appreciation
to Mrs. Christy and Mr. OlBrien for their aid in organizing the squad.
