His unruffled composure and unfailing good humor are admired by all his pupils, even by those who may at times have tested these qualities. His deliberate utterance and precise phrasing command the eager attention of all the members of his classes. No student in the classroom of this very human instructor could fail to absorb a large part of the knowledge which, in the interplay of minds of teacher and taught, he so inspiringly communi- cates to his pupils. I So, with gratitude and pride, we salute you - Mr. Frank McGrath. OME here a moment, son. Did you ask what this book is? If you could spare but five minutes of your time, I will endeavor to tell you . . . This book, the 1940 Yearbook, is a reproduction of some of the happiest moments of your lives, f- the time when you were training your brains, molding your characters, and learning how to live and what to live for. It is a reproduction of your days in school. Some day all of you, at some time or another, will wish to look back upon those glorious days to see your friends, soon to be scattered to the far corners of the earth: your teachers, who guided you patiently through your youth: and, finally, yourselves as you were in your boyhood. All of that will be a dim memory forty years from now. You will have only a hazy recollection of the instances in your youth that could make you eternally young again. Those moments of joy and gaiety will have passed into oblivion and will be lost forever. Therefore, we earnestly beg you to keep this little book. Treasure it as you would your life. Put it away where it will be safe. Today you are happy and gay. You will soon have passed a great milestone in your lives, -- a moment that you will never forget. But, the story behind that milestone will gradually dis- appear as you go onward, like the sun at twilight. And then, all will be dark. So, remember, friends, keep this book. To- morrow when you are depressed or dejected, bring it out again and dust it off. I assure you it will be more than worth the trouble. CLASS OF 1940 David A.

He offers cz worried countenance to the world, and joins Lee Steiner in attempting to heckle Mr. McGrath. ACITUS, greatest of Roman historians, once said something to the effect that the chief office of history was to rescue virtuous actions from the oblivion to which a want of records would consign them: and, because the academic life of the class of 1940 might, otherwise, never be preserved for posterity, your class historian submits this record. Not so very long ago, September, 1931, to be exact, Miss Grace Frost, friendly Lower Primary instructress, was introduced to her new young charges. There they stood before her, gleaming and bright as the early morning dew: Iohn Gifford Chanalis, Richard Charles Hess, Sanford Kessler, Glen Roy Peterson, Ir., and Herbert Roy Van Ness, lr. As Shakespeare so aptly said, "Meet the first beginnings: look to the budding mischief," and there it was! It was a year of endless sniffles, bulging lunch-boxes, and overly large "plus-fours." The following year we were in the Upper Primary, and our ranks were augmented by the arrival of Richard Fuld Kessler, who joined us just in time to learn the fine points of that thrilling f?l "Cat and Mouse" game. Who could ever forget it? When we returned in September, 1933, we welcomed Iohn B. Ashmun, Rudolph Eberstadt, and Edmund R. Kohn to our lively group in Mr. Weisiger's class, Where the blackboard drawings by our teacher were a constant source of entertainment to us all. A year of interesting days with an instructor of inexhaustible good nature, who, on occasions, even told us a few confidential details of his great romance that was then in full bloom. tP.S. She married himll The fame of our form must have spread considerably, for, on hearing of us, L. Dudley Coles and Robert Merwin Fischer joined our forces in the Upper Intermediate in September, 1934. This glowing reputation was rightly deserved: for, were we not in the class of that most famous Mr. Evans? Here we learned to spell as we had never spelled before. We learned to dodge flying erasers and epithets tfriendly, but devastatingl with equal ease. It was tough going at first, but when Iune came, we all regretted that this exciting year had passed so quickly. First Form-Second Floor-we had arrived! The magic word "Form" lifted us out of the abhorred juvenile ranks of the first floor. This year saw the retirement of Dr. Wilson Farrand, after thirty-four faithful years as Headmaster at Newark Academy. We were glad, however, to greet one of our own Newark Academy men, Clifton F. Zerweck, as the new Master. Ioining us in our new status as "First Formers" that September, were C. Russell Belcher, Howard H. Connors, William P. Foster, Edward Geiger, Stephen Horner, William L. Horr, Robert A. Koehler, Donald Pyle, Arthur E. Rosengarten, Raymond W. Whitehead: and also William I. Heathwood, who arrived in February of the next year. It was fun having two teachers, and this variety of instructors helped to take the rough edges off Latin and Algebra, which were for from easy. Mr. Pierson, our Home-room teacher, showed us what real school spirit could be. He entered into all our games most enthusiastically and gave us particular aid in playing soccer. His Spelling Club, hardly an honorary organization, developed quite a membership. We learned to spell, just the same. Our other instructor, Mr. Hobbs, led us through the exciting travels of Caesar, as well as giving us some very good advice on general matters. No one will ever forget those helpful mottoes on the walls of his room. Our athletic activities began here, and with terrific enthusiasm stirred up, we all dreamed of wearing "N's" some day. tSome are still dreaming. and a few are wearing "N's"J. 'X O L! Fl , X 1 ,f S 2 - L5 3 Li t When we returned for our Second Form in September, 1936, many changes had been made in our class-roster. Ashmun, Foster, Horner and Whitehead had left, and we welcomed in their places, Peter H. Schaub, David Speir, Leroy Straight and Harold C. Tint. Ierome Bess entered our ever-increasing group in February of the next year. Our teacher was Mr. Moore, humorist supreme, who delighted in tossing puns at us: once he forgot and threw an old electric light bulb. instead. Our earliest class activities were well reported by Howard Connors, who represented the Polymnian in our class for that year. The Third Form in 1937 meant more excitement. We had reached the famous "Study Hall" at last. There, waiting for us, was the amiable Mr. Mattoon, who would just as willingly give one a cough-drop as a "Saturday." tP.S. He generally gave the latterl. That September we missed Chanalis, Geiger. Kessler, CSanfordl, Kohn, Schaub and Speir. when we returned, but almost twice as many new faces took their places. Robert C. Campbell. Iohn R. Cooney. lack Greenspan, Kenneth Heyman, William V. Irvine, Ir., Allen I. Iedel, Alan K. Ieydel, Richard T. Silvers, Morris N. Stein. and Louis Winters entered in September. In February of the next year. Koehler and Straight left us, and Bernard S. Ogust took their seats. It was during this year that we elected our first School-Council representative, William Horr. Bess, Coles, Irvine and Hon' began to "go places" in Iunior Varsity Basketball. This year also marked the passing of the optional lunch-boxes, fmother's delightl, and instead we had the cafeteria tray. groaning be- neath the weight of the delectable dinners that we were to eat every noon. Class weight went up accordingly. and seats were adjusted to meet the new demands of excess avoirdupois. September, 1938, and we were Fourth Form! Cooney. Fischer, Peterson, Van Ness and Winters were no longer with us, but David A. Barbieri, Keith A. Bentley, Theodore C. Clarke. George W. Patterson, G. lohn Schreiner and George E. Titterton joined us that fall, with Lee N. Steiner entering in February, 1939. Our class was represented on the Varsity Football Team by Barbieri, Bentley and Iedel: in Basketball by Barbieri, Bentley and Bess: in Baseball by Barbieri. Clarke, Horr, ledel and Titterton: in Track by Bess and Barbieri. Our activities were not confined to athletics alone, but to numerous other extra-curricular ventures, as well. We had a fine representation on the Polymnian Board, the Drama Club, the School Dance Committee and the Student Council. The beginning of our Fifth Form, in September, 1939. had for its background, the war in Europe, which had been declared but a few weeks before school opened. It put our school days in a democracy on a much higher plane of importance than we had ever thought of before. That fall, Bentley, Clarke, Greenspan, and Iedel left, and their places were taken by Burton L. Boye, Ir., Daniel F. Casey, Willard H. Inglis and David P. Weidig, all Newark Academy post- graduates. The new students who entered our Form were R. Thomas Cochran, Robert R. Dunn, Ir.. I. Gordon Roan, Walter K. Sherwood, Ir.. T. Clifford Smith, Harry G. Stanley, Robert R. Taylor. Raymond C. Townley and George W. Wakeley. Sylvester DiStasio 'entered in February, 1940, the year famous for "Gone With The Wind" and the Valentine's Day blizzard. In our last year. we branched out into every school activity, having many fine representatives in each group. Our Fifth Form record of achievement is well pictured and amply written-up in other parts of this book, so there is no need of repetitious accounts of our last year at Newark Academy. However, as years roll by, these seemingly cold statistical facts should take on. for us all, an added importance and deeper significance, as a reminder of many full and happy years.

This is a sidewalk broadcast coming to you from in front of the new and beautiful Wakeley Theatre in Newark, New Iersey. This is, as you undoubt- edly know, one of a large number under the same successful management. The crowds are lined up along the streets to get a glimpse of the celebrities as they enter the theatre to see the premiere of the movie of Rudolph Eberstadt's great novel 'Coming with the Calm.' In the lobby a mob of autograph hounds are crowding around the star of the picture-that romantic Spanish Romeo, Don Pylos. Believe it or not, but Senor Pylos was born in Iersey City. He is accompanied by his good friend 'Wild Bill' Heathwood, the king of the race-tracks. Mr. Heathwood's horse, 'Sleeping Beauty.' won the Kentucky Derby last week. "Out of a limousine that has just drawn up is stepping our own Mayor Horr. He is accom- panied by three of the richly attired city commissioners, 'Honest Will' Irvine. Robert-not-the-actor Taylor, and Aykay leydel. With them is the power behind the local throne, the eminent psy- chiatrist Dr. Willard Inglis . . . Ah! here come some of the movie moguls. That gold-colored town-car belongs to none other than Harry Stanley, With him is Mr, Bernard Ogust and Mr. Walter Sherwood. These gentlemen are the heads of S-O-S productions Csuccessors to M-G-Ml. A three-wheeled sedan has just rolled up,-one, two, three, four-four beautiful girls step out. and they are all being escorted by the Broadway Matinee Idol, H. Hart Connors. "Arriving in a streamlined taxi are the newspapermen, en masse. The taxi is one of the large Townley fleet, tMr. Ray Townley certainly has gone far in the cab business since he used to taxi boys to track practice while at Newark Academyl. The first person to alight is C. Russell Belcher, President of the Belcher Newspaper Syndicate. With him is the popular columnist 'Eye-sling' Roan. 'Punchy' Silvers is also there with his notebook . . . This premiere certainly is bringing all of the 'local' boys back. "Stepping oft a trolley car is the president of the Congress of Industrial Organization KCIOJ, Mr. Harold Tint. He is the only person, so far. not to come in evening clothes. Immediately behind the union leader is Mr. Burt Boye,the new chef of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. "Forcing their way through the crowd is a police escort which is clearing a path for New Iersey's Senator to Wasington, the Honorable Mr. Di Stasio. But who is that diminutive little fellow with him? Why, of course! It's Dave Barbieri of the New York Giant's professional team. Hi, Dave! . . . X 95 55 96 "Now that the picture is over, we have placed a tela-microphone in Ierry Bess' 'El Suavo' night-club. Here are congregated the members of Newark Academy's class of 1940 for their annual convention. 'Glamour Dan' Casey, President of the American Telegraph and Telephone Corporation, has just joined that group of well groomed people in the corner. I see R. C. Campbell, the globe-trotter, dancing with Mrs. Iack Schreiner, the wife of the drummer of the 'hot-spot's' band. Speaking of the band, its popular leader is 'Tinny' Tommy Cochran, who also is an alumnus of N. A. "I wonder who that tremendous man over there is-the face is familiar. Unless I am terribly mistaken he is Cliff Smith, Westfield's mayor, fire chief, and best barber. 4 l l 1 "The only member of the 'Newark Academy-Class of 1940 Club' who will not be present at this annual affair is that death-defying soldier-of-fortune, Dudley Coles, who is leading a flying- tank battalion against the aggressive Estonian government. Mr. Coles, or 'Dare-devil Dud,' always travels with two trunks full of medals. He is one of the most colorful grads of old N. A. "At this gala party, champagne is flowing like water in view of the fact that 'Diamond' George Patterson, the Rocket Ship magnate, has so generously donated fifteen cases of this beverage. The only person that I can see who is not partakinq of the sparkling drink is 'Killer' Kessler, the world's champion wrestler. The 'Killer' trains on milk. "The lights of the beautiful night-club are dimmed, and a powerful spotlight is turned on the dance floor. The audience hushes and waits for what it knows will be the very best in entertainment. The orchestra is playing a few notes of rhumba music, and the internationally famous dance team of Ken and Ien are gliding onto the floor. This couple, who are really Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Heyman, are greeted by a round of applause. Even the Ambassador to Russia, Mr. Morris Stein, appreciates the light fantastic tif I may coin Mr. Iohn Milton's expressionl, as displayed by this famous dance team. Speaking of Morris Stein, you may or may not remember that he was the Communist Party's candidate in the election of 1960. "As the entertainers take their final bow, Robert Dunn, the 'Gentleman from Verona,' walks up to the tela-microphone to lend his gorgeous baritone voice to a few popular songs. Generally, Mr. Dunn only sings at the Metropolitan Opera House, but he has gotten into the swing of general joviality, and has consented to sing for his ex-class mates. "Mr. David Weidig, father of the famous Weidig sextuplets, has just entered the club un- noticed. He, without doubt, is the man of the year. As I remember Dave in the good old days, he was always setting unimportant records. He could get from the Study Hall to History class faster than anyone in the long history of Newark Academy. In his latest feat he has certainly outshown himself. With Mr. Weidig is the famous scientist, Dr. Richard Hess. Nobel prize winner. Dr. Hess won the coveted award for discovering a way to put an atom together after it had been smashed. "Talking to the hat-check girl are two prominent men about town, Messrs. Lee Steiner, the Capable District Attorney of New York, and Ralph Stern the novelist. Mr. Stern's newest best seller is, as you probably know, 'I Iust Got Black From Florida! These two men have very little time for amusement, but it would be quite useless to try to keep them away from this, one of the social season's most outstanding events. This alumni club annually draws many of the most known personalities in this section of the country. "It is quite evident that the 'boys' who are members of the class of 1940 have been successful in many and assorted fields of endeavour. The teachers who helped these men to acquire success are certainly deservant of especial recognition. "And as the time draws near for this reunion to be ended, the acclaimed movie critic George Titterton has just been quoted as saying, 'The picture is a great success'! Now the evening has been most pleasant in every respect to the club members. "So, until we meet again, this is your commentator, Arthur Rosengarten, signing off until next year's super-social gathering of the 'Newark Academy-Class of 1940 Club'."

Under the able coaching of Mr. Scammon, and with the assistance of several talented girls from Prospect Hill Country Day School, two performances were given before the Christ- mas Prom on the night of December fifteenth to a highly appreciative audience in the Academy auditorium. Two short plays were presented, namely, "Sky Fodder" and "The Pot Boiler." On the evening of April nineteenth the Drama Club again came forth with an ex- cellent play, "Gold in the Hills." As before, several girls from Prospect Hill assisted. Mr. Scammon, his roster of loyal supporters, both on the stage and behind the scenes, deserve only the greatest praise for their task. Although this year saw tremendous gains in the support shown the Drama Club by the school, it is still felt that their efforts warrant more attention. However, pros- pects for the future are unusually bright, despite several losses by graduation, and ambitious plans are already being formulated for next season. 45 INTERSCHOOL DANCE COMMITTEE George Iohn Schreiner, Ir., Chairman Ioseph Michael Byrne, III Clinton Boy Dickinson, Ir. Robert Thomas Cochran, II William David Davis During a student council meeting held before Christmas vacation, it was proposed that Carteret Academy, Pingry School, Montclair Academy, and,Newark Academy combine to give an interschool dance. lack Schreiner, President of the Student Council, was elected head of the Dance Committee which included five boys from each school, thus making twenty in all. Those from Newark Academy including lack Schreiner, were Tom Cochran, Ioe Byrne, Bill Davis, and Roy Dickinson. The dance was held at the Montclair Golf Club in West Orange on Friday night, the first of March. Tommy Reynolds and his "Band of To1norrow" furnished music for dancing from nine until two in the morning. Because of the success of this affair, an interschool dance is planned to be held annually. RING 4 COMMITTEE Morris Nathan Stein, Chairman Howard-Hart Connors Jerome Bess The Ring Committee, after a lengthy conference with the representatives of Dieges and Clust, and after comparing numerous types of ring designs, finally chose a very outstand- ing one. A short and quick sales campaign, during which at least two-thirds of the graduating class purchased rings, fol- lowed, so successful was the choice. The ring that was selected by the committee was oval in shape, with either an onyx or ruby stone, and an early colonial type crest. On the crest is a large gold and the word "Academy" engraved below it. The members of the class were all well-satisfied with the choice, and much praise is due to the committee for their fine work and good taste. 46 V I v FX X C fx D l DANCE COMMITTEE Chester Russell Belcher, Chairman Alan Augenblick William David Davis Harry Haulenbeck Bristol, Ir. Kenneth Heyman Robert Thomas Cochran, Il Willard Hamilton Inglis George Iohn Schreiner, Ir. On Friday, the fifteenth of December, the Dance Committee successfully presented its annual Christmas Prom. This year the dance was preceded by a splendid performance of the Drama Club, two short productions, "Sky Fodder" and "The Pot Boiler." Plans were begun by the Committee in ample time, and the dance was considered by everyone an outstanding success. For the first time in several years the accounts showed a profit at the end of the evening, and at last a permanent dance fund has been established. It was decided that no Spring Prom would be held this year because of the lnterschool Dance on the first of March. The decorations were rather unique, differing from any- thing in recent years. Alternate green and red streamers were suspended from a hoop on the center of the ceiling, and were extended outward to the four walls of the gym. Excellent music was supplied by Carl Kroll and his orchestra, and refreshments were served during the evening. For their many efforts and their hard work, the Dance Committee is well deserving of praise. PIPE COMMITTEE Kenneth Heyman, Richard Fuld Kessler Co Chairmen Donald Pyle Arthur Edward Bosengarten The Pipe Committee, after carefully inspecting the products of several local pipe concerns, finally chose a tasteful pipe to serve as a parting remembrance for the graduating class The committee offered to the class a choice of two pipes one with a medium bowl and long stem, and one known as the bull dog." Each pipe was adorned with the letter N and the class numerals inlaid in silver on the bowl CLASS OFFICERS Elected by the graduating class.

Boston University Y M ' I A FOOTBALL TEAM The Academy football team, under the able tutelage of Harry Oestreich, and assisted by Udell Stallings and Carl Perina, has once again completed a highly successful season. After the final whistle blew on November ll, the records showed a result of three victories, one tie, and one loss. Opening their schedule with their traditional rivals, Montclair Academy, the team emerged from the fracas with a 7-O victory. Handicapped by the disablement of cap- able Captain Dave Barbieri, the team then dropped a heartbreaker to Morristown School, the score being 6-U. Due to the ineligibility of two players, Morristown was forced to forfeit the game. However, realizing that Morristown was fully innocent of the situation, Mr. Oestreich refused to accept the forfeit. With enthusiasm running high, Newark Academy then took to the air with an easy victory over Poly Prep, running the score up to 18-6 by the end of the game. Meeting next the traditionally strong Scarborough team, our representatives on the gridiron entered into the toughest game of their schedule. Battling like Titans, the two teams were deadlocked during the first three quarters. In the last bracket both teams chalked up goals, and the game resulted in a 7-7 tie. Two weeks later a powerful Rutgers Frosh l50 pound aggregation was buried under an avalanche of five tallies by the inspired teamwork of the Newarkers. This victory more than atoned for the season's one defeat. With this highly successful season ended, hopes for next year's team ran high. Coach Oestreich can look forward to the return of center Williams, who played full- time every game, Stanley and Allen: and in the backfield to Walker, Lyons, Campbell, Bristol, and Aronson. Another Academy championship team is in prospect for 1940. Date Newark Academy vs. N.A. Opp Oct. Montclair Academy ..... 0 Oct. Morristown School 6 Oct. Poly Prep .................. 6 Nov.

Again we were tops in our class, Group III Prep Schools, conquering Morristown, Montclair, Pingry, Carteret. and Rutgers Prep. Coach Udell Stallings was handicapped by the return of only two veterans, Dave Barbieri and Ierry Bess, both from last year's successful team. However, he had some fine new players on handfBob Dunn, Paul Walker, lack Campbell, George Patterson, and Louis Aronson. The forward positions were taken care of by Bess, Dunn, and Patterson. Dave Barbieri, lack Campbell, and Louis Aronson covered the guards, and Paul Walker displayed an outstanding ability as center. The first five games were quite successful and resulted in exciting victories for us over old and tried rivals. lt was in the Pingry game, played the night of the Father and Son Dinner, that the team achieved its peak: that night they were "hot," and played fine basketball. This game marked the renewal of our athletic relations with the boys from Elizabeth. The Princeton Freshmen, Admiral Farragut, and Blair Academy were too much for us: while losses to .McBurney, Verona, and a return game with Morristown were upsets. The Verona game was played for the Infantile Paralysis Fund. Ierry Bess, forward with Bob Dunn, was the high scorer with one hundred and twenty-eight points. Varsity letters were awarded to Aronson, Barbieri, Bess, lack Campbell, Dunn, Gumb, Patterson, Walker, and Dick Kessler, Manager. For the first time in several years there was a "B" team. Boys on this team winning minor letters were Allen, Casey, Coles, Horr, Irvine, Stanley, and Williams. Date Newark Academy vs. N.A.

Unusually heavy rains had hampered early practice: however, Coach Stallings put a well-knit, alert team on the field, and Won the game 9-8. Only three lettermen returned from last year's squad, and Coach Stallings has had to completely rebuild his team. Catcher Harry Stanley, pitcher Dave Barbieri, and crack shortstop lack Campbell form the nucleus of the team, these men are all smart fielders, and their hitting is dependable and heavy. At first is Bob Dunn, steady in the field and at bat: at second, Di Stasio, the most consistent hitter on the team, and third base remains a toss-up be- tween Hobbs and Tepper. ln the outfield from left to right we find: Bill Horr. a good fielder, Iohn Lyons, fastest man on the team, and Dan Casey. Many new opponents have been added to the schedule: Adelphi. Columbia Frosh, St. Peter's Prep of Iersey City, and Peekskill Military Academy. Games with traditional rivals Montclair, Pingry, Carteret, and Morristown round out the schedule. Below is the full and complete schedule of the 1940 Red and Black baseball team.

Coach Chester Russell Belcher, Manager N TRACK TEAM This year the track team met with many obstacles. The greatest of these was a change in the coaching staff. However, Mr. Oestreich deserves especial praise for his fine work in rounding out an excellent team from very little material. Captain Dave Barbieri was the leading aspirant to return this year. Other veterans were Lou Aronson, Ierry Bess, Bob Campbell, Bill Irvine, and Bob Marks. Tommy Allen was the leading new-comer, holding top honors in the 220, high jump, and pole vault. Other first year men to the Academy track were Iohnny Lyons, Hay Townley, George Wakeley, Paul Walker. Bill Williams, and our own Ioe Byrne. The sprints were well taken care of by Allen, Barbieri, Bess, and Marks. Campbell and Lyons were very prominent in the 440: Ray Townley and George Wakeley held down the 880 and the one mile run respectively. Ioe Byrne brought in second honors in the mile. The field events were not quite as promising. The pole vault, however, was still an Academy strongpoint with Allen and Barbieri. The high jump was led by Allen and Campbell. In the broad jump Barbieri landed a good first followed by Bess. Aronson, Irvine, Walker, and Williams did a very fine job putting the shot. When this book went to press, only two meets had been held. The dual meet with St. Peter's C. H. S. resulted in a complete victor for the Academy with a final score of 55-22. In the Penn Relays the mile relay team, including Allen, Bess, Campbell, and Townley, was in excellent form, and easily won the race in its division. Although there are still seven meets to come, it appears as if we were to have another fine track season. Date Newark Academy vs. April 24 St. Peter's C. H. S.

This has always hindered our teams, but this year Clarence I. Pope, '06, is backing our team in this respect, and we have several matches arranged late in the season, being played at our so-called home courts which are at the Berkley Tennis Club of East Orange. Those aspirants who have turned out for this year's team are mostly younger boys who, with this year's experience behind them, will form a well- organized team in a few years to come. This, at least, if we cannot have a successful team this year, is something to look forward to. However, the fellows should be congratulated on the spirit with which they are entering this minor activity of the Academy. Date Newark Academy vs. April 30 St. Peter's C. H. S.

By the time the season came to an unfor- seen close a great improvement of the members' marksmanship could be readily seen. More intense interest than that which was displayed by the members could not be asked for. Especial thanks are due to Bob Taylor, Captain and Coach, who devoted much time and trouble to make our team successful. We are quite confident that, under his effective coaching, the potential ability which was very apparent will gain for us a victorious season next year.

The boys have trained faithfully throughout the school year under discouraging conditions: often they did not reach home until seven o'clock. Several meets had been scheduled, when this yearbook went to press, among them the Princeton Freshmen, Dickinson High School, and the Newark Y. M. C. A., Iunior Team. Coach Fred Ball is highly optimistic about the prospects of the team, several of whom possess promising ability.
