Do not allow a later- day cynicism to blight your young enthusiasms. Do not permit anyone to persuade you that the world is a used-up futility. There will always be Work to do, problems to solve. l have faith that you will meet your future challenges in the spirit of joyous, adventurous and courageous daring. ALFRED S. ROBERTS I 9 l EXILED Blow, oh ye hot winds, Blow from the burning sands, Blow from the steaming forests, Blow from the southern loncls. Boll, oh ye river, Roll through your muddy wotlls, Boll through your red rock gorges, Roll through your fogrning tolls. Sing, oh ye ricebird, Sing ot the sun-warmed ploin, Sing of the rogrning cgttle, Sing of the growing groin. But blow not, hot winds, And roll not, river's loom, And sing not, oh ricebird, For I may not come home. Robert C.

After seeing some of the proofs of my friends, I was definitely apprehensive about the whole business. While I was waiting around for my number to be called, I took notice of my fellow photo subjects. They were nervously combing hair, powdering noses and straightening ties. My turn came and I mustered up my ebbing spirits and strode confidently into the screened-off area where the "shooting" was taking place. The suddenness of bursting upon the dazzling lights momentarily blinded me and I tripped over a cord, fell against the camera, and, all in all, caused the photographer no little concern. While he was rearranging the camera and lights, I sat on the stool provided for that purpose and pondered how I would pose. I had been making faces at myself in the mirror for days in anticipation of this event. After all, my ever- loving relatives had to be given pictures and the problem was a mean one. Should I give them a glamorous gaze, be sweet and wistful, or have a serious, intelligent expression representative of my Senior dignity and four-years hard struggle? I had just decided on the latter when my musings were interrupted by, "Turn your head a little that way please, not too far." I assumed my previ- ously meditated austere expression and was all ready to have my physiognomy recorded for posterity when the photographer hesitated for a moment and said, "You'd better smile." I still don't know if he meant it as a warning or a sugges- tion, but I thought it best that I comply with his wishes. While he jumped in and out of that black drape around the camera and put- tered around with the plates, I basked in the glare emanating from the lamps, feeling almost like an actress or a model. At this point I saw him getting ready to proceed, so I hastily rearranged my features. "All right now, hold your head up, no, not back. No, no, over here, don't stare at the camera, here, look into my eyes." At his innocent but mirth-provoking statement I burst into uncontrollable laugh- ter and he, in exasperation, snapped a fine display of my teeth. We argued over taking a profile, but I, knowing my profile as I do, flatly re- fused, so I grinned and he snapped and I grinned and he snapped again. Sud- denly it was all over and my ten minutes worth would be placed in a little square along with the others in the yearbook. I staggered out and the girl next in line whispered excitedly, "I-Iow is it?" I-Ier hopes were high and she Wore a positively ecstatic look so who was I to disillu- sion her? She'd find out soon enough. One bright sunny morning a couple of weeks later, my proofs arrived. I grasped them eagerly and took not just one look, but several. All I can say is, "Where was I when my pictures were taken?" Betty Martin I93l -mmm? T ARISTA I The Arista League of the High Schools of the City of New York, the fourth honor society to be established in the United States of America, was conceived and organized in lanuary, 1910, by Dr. W. B. Gunnison, beloved principal of the Erasmus Hall High School of Brooklyn, New York. Shortly thereafter, Dr. I. D. Dillingham inducted the New- town High School Chapter which held its first meeting on April ll, l9lU. l The three sides of the Arista Triangle are symbolic of Char- BQ . acter, Scholarship and Service. W A translation, from the original School Service Greek, of the I1'1OttO of the league reads: "Whatever is fair and of good reputef' The Arista League aims, very definitely, to build and strengthen character by stressing such qualities as leadership, initiative, sincerity, fidelity, loyalty, truthfulness, helpfulness, efficiency and a willingness to serve.

As you know the Bibliophiles work in the library. Each period has a set group or squad which remains the same throughout the entire term. At every club meeting the Bibliophiles have a period squad enter- tain. lt is up to the squad selected for that week to run the meeting, provide entertainment and to furnish an interesting topic for discussion. The best squad l95l f 7 .,-.

According to Mrs. Florence Allen, the faculty adviser, they haven't had an uninteresting meeting as yet. Another unusual feature of the Bibliophiles is that it encourages its alumni to attend meetings. Many alumni are to be seen in school for the sole purpose of attending a Bibliophile meeting. The graduate may be asked to speak and he or she will give the club an inside view of college life or of contemporary prob- lems in the business world. On the whole, their meetings are very informal, which probably accounts for their success. This term's officers are Gene Elliott and Laura Goldberg, president and vice- president respectively, Betty Martin, secretary and Muriel Fitzgerald, treasurer. ADVISERS' AIDES I The Advisers' Aides are a group of about forty girls, who are actively engaged in the clerical work of the advisers' office. These girls run errands, help in the planning of the new term's programs, record marks on the report cards and act as secretaries to the grade advisers. This club is the most exclusive girls' organization in the school. The applicants are chosen from a list recommended by the teachers. Most of the applicants join when fifth termers and continue serving throughout their high school career. ln the past, the Advisers' Aides girls used to give a dance. This dance was the social event of the season. Each A.A. girl was allotted a certain number of invitations which she disposed of to her friends. Admission to the dance was impossible without these invitations. Part of the pleasure of knowing an A.A. girl is trying to get your report card marks before the cards come out. The girls are unusually secretive and refuse to tell the awful truth. They are nice about it, however, and always try to make you think you passed. Florence Rau and Virginia Riegelman act as president and vice-president, respectively, While Iune Clarke serves as secretary and Martha McKee is treasurer. Mr. Walter Porter is the Aides' faculty adviser. ASSEMBLY BOCDK SQUAD A l We don't know if you'll recognize them without their little book carts but that's the Assembly Book Squad on the right. The Assembly Book Squad is one of the many service clubs in Newtown and one of the most select. No tryouts or competitions are held for this club. Promising students are invited to join and these students usually accept. This club is a male club only. The work of loading the carts and wheeling them is more or less strenuous and, therefore, is not open to the gentler sex. l98l mm? Mwwgm Ubdom NOOw MMUHW wWmmH4UP l99 m'v:1:::vQ---:L-'ctg UPGOM As in the case of the Ushering Squad, Miss Charlotte Eggleston is in charge of the Assembly Book Squad. These two clubs are the only ones in Newtown which Miss Eggleston heads personally. The Book Squad's duties consist solely of the care and distribution of books. They must see that every other person in the assembly hall is equipped with books. After the assembly is over they must collect the books and store them. The squad incidentally is present at every assembly during the term. Robert lohnson is the honorary captain of this organization and Wilbur Colbert is captain. Thomas McAuley occupies the position of first lieutenant. MULTIGRAPI-I SQUAD l lf you've ever wondered whom to thank for getting out those Regents ap- plication blanks, you know now. lt's the Multigraph Squad. The Multigraphers, headed by faculty adviser Mrs. Marie Terrott, Captain Bernard Fleischer, and Lieutenants Bruce Herman and Floyd l-lasselriis, are responsible for turning out pass applications, book cards, boys' P. T. cards and many other pieces of fine work. The multigraph office on the third floor is the scene of their activities. The early weeks of the term are devoted to teaching the theory and practice of multigraphing and training recruits. The recruits are taught to set type, run off cards and clean the machine. For their service the boys are awarded a period pass. However, that is merely one side of the Multigraph Squad. There is another and rosier side. When all the work is done the boys gather around to hold quiet discussions. Their choice of topics and taste is almost universal. Any topic from the prospects of a new multigraph machine, to the superior qualities of the Giants is earnestly debated. One person invariably does next period's homework. One of my fondest remembrances will always be that of an ink- besmeared philosopher airing his views on life in general as he laboriously sets type. SERVICE SQUAD l Some time back, due to friction between the students and members of the Service Squad, the squad put in effect a new policy. This policy was the practice of courtesy and helpfulness. The student body was encouraged to consider the Service Squad as an organization maintained for guidance and assistance rather than law and order. This policy worked admirably. Today very little friction exists. The officers and men are courteous and help the student body in every way possible. The students, realizing at last the tremendous task the squad has, are co-operating. ln order to keep such a policy alive and full of meaning the squad utilizes H001 WOHZMM CDUIIDIWO U2'.IllI"'ZlO'-I"l'.I""2lO UPGOm mOH4wmm 0 l.":Pl'.1'JL"'.IZI.'l1Q ZOHHPNHZPQWO certain practices. One is the maintenance of an information bureau. Any person in doubt about some school rule or activity may receive the required information from the service officersj The squad also offers posts to freshmen. Freshmen who are unable to join clubs and yet who have an urge to serve the school find their opportunity on the Service Squad. Finally, Captain Alfred Yudes and his first and second Lieutenants, Eugene Minnietta and Daniel Donahue, enforce an efficient promotive and demotive system. Any inefficient officer is demoted or asked to resign from the squad. Rank and file men are advanced if they show any promise of efficiency. The squad's faculty adviser, Mr. Eugene V. Holzer, superintends the entire system. SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS l For the first time in the history of Newtown the candidates for the offices of the Senior Class were required to speak about themselves. This system added so much humor to the occasion-that it probably will be continued from now on. Most of the candidates were extremely shy and devoted a large part of their speech to praising their opponents. Thomas Dent, candidate for treasurer, was more or less belligerent and uttered a few uncomplimentary remarks about the so-called honesty of one Thomas A. Dent. He practically stated that he would abscond with the family fortunes if elected. The Senior Class promptly elected him. Wilbur Colbert and Leonard Ingalls were elected as president and vice- president respectively. Ianet Galbraith was modest and thanked the class for the nomination, later she captured the office of secretary. These officers are in charge of Senior activities. The president, Wilbur Colbert, supervises the proceedings. Leonard Ingalls is concerned with Senior Prom and, with the assistance of Iohn Valantiejus, Prom chairman, is planning the Prom. Thomas Dent is in charge of class dues, price of programs, etc. Ianet Galbraith acts as secretary to all three. Miss Muriel lean Drummond is their faculty adviser. GENERAL ORGANIZATION I Probably the most exciting activity in high school is campaign week. Each term the three political parties select their candidates, round out a program and enter campaign Week. This week is a Week of hurly-burly activity. The halls are littered with booster tags, posters and handbills. Speakers are everywhere, rushing about and covering sections. The study halls are addressed and the final rallies are held. On Friday of that week little groups of worried speakers keep petitioning Mr. Hugo I. Schultz, G.O. faculty adviser, for election results. While they wait they H021 muwmmmm mmHwQzm UPGDW QZHWWIMG H031 ll wcu-'Q Z wo-:HZ keep rehashing all the events of the week and assure each other that it's a dog's life and that they're glad it's all over. Last term the officers elected were Richard Pearson as president, Charles Gib- bons, vice-president, and Betty Gibbons, secretary. The duties of these officers are many and varied. They may have to organize a speaking campaign for GO. funds or make posters for it. The secretary takes care of correspondence and clerical work. The president and vice-president check the financial end of the G.O. organization. The officers also help supervise the G.O. store. UST-IEBING SQUAD l The Ushering Squad is the feminine counterpart of the Assembly Book Squad. The usherettes, like the Book Squad, also enjoy the privilege of having Miss Charlotte Eggleston as faculty adviser. Like the Advisers' Aides and the Assembly Book Squad the members of the Ushering Squad are chosen from a list of students who have teachers' recom- mendations. The purpose of the Ushering Squad is to assist at assembly activities. The members line up at the beginning of the assembly and await their cue from the leader. At her signal the usherettes lead the students to their seats. They are careful to see that just enough students are permitted to sit in every row. Personally l've always marveled at their precision and accuracy. l've never been to an assembly yet where an usherette made a mistake in counting. It must be trigonometry or algebra behind it all. When the assembly is over the leaders give the students the signal to rise and then lead them out of the hall. The chief usher of this squad is Virginia Biegelmann. Miss Biegelmann also enjoys the privilege of being the A. M. head usher. Helen Vandervoost is the P. M. head usher. ENGLISH l-IEBALDS l Since the student body hasn't the time to read many books, it is advisable that they know something about a book before they read it. ln this way they should enjoy books that they read, as they are forewarned concerning their contents. Working on this assumption, the English I-leralds, a group of about forty members, review the newer and better books and have the best reviews published. ln the past they used to post their reviews on the G.O. bulletin board. However, they later found it advisable to publish them in the "X-Ray." This term they are also supplying the "Scribe" with book reviews. As the club's duty is publishing book reviews, all applicants must submit a book review to be considered by an entrants' committee. H041 !1'JL"1I."1IO UPGOm mwmUbmw WGFO QZHOZPU H051 HbOHm4:w "4OZI."'1'-'Q'-"11"l'1I."1 Before each issue of the "X-Ray" goes to press a group of book reviews are submitted to the review editor of the l-leralds, Rose Gentile. She selects those she needs, edits them, if necessary, and submits them to the "X-Bay." The best review causes the book which it reviews to be classed as the "book of the month." The best reviewer usually receives a prize at the end of the term. Mrs. Clara Hays, an English teacher, is faculty adviser of this organization and Desmond Fairbairn is president. Howard Fuld is vice-president, ludith Turner is secretary and Bart Green is the treasurer. MAICR "N" CLUB l This club is composed of athletes who have their major lt fosters the spirit of fellowship among its members and assists whenever possible in promoting the general interest of the school. The Major "N" Club could be properly classed as a service club. All its mem- bers are athletes. Many of them are stars in their own right. Yet these athletes volunteer to police the games at Newtown. They help sell tickets, distribute cheers, usher at games and preserve law and order. This is a great service and without the gracious assistance of Major "N" Club many an athletic affair would not run off with precision and order. The Major "N" sponsors two dances a term. These dances are usually the first and the last dances of the season. At the last dance the Major "N" attempts to help the alumni, who have gathered for the occasion, meet some of their old friends. At its meetings Major "N" discusses possible methods of encouraging school spirit and athletic support. They also arrange an ushers' schedule for coming games. Mr. Samuel A. Cox is faculty adviser and Oscar Camponeschi president of Major "N Charles Gibbons is vice-president and William Sorlingas, secretary. DANCING CLUB l The Dancing Club, the brain child of a political party, has proven to be more than a success. The Dancing Club was created to teach Seniors the intricacies of social dancing. lt was hoped that in this way a bigger Senior Prom might be insured. The method of teaching is an extremely simple and direct one. The students are paired off into couples and arranged in a circle. Miss Anna Hajek occupies the center of the floor and demonstrates the step to be learned. A student plays the piano and the couples practice the step. As they are grouped about Miss Hajek, it is easy to detect errors in their dancing. The club has an informal atmosphere and has all the aspects of an afternoon ll06l party. The administration believes that one of the terrors of a dancing class is its formal tone, but here beginners are put completely at ease and thus their dancing lessons come easier. At the end of the term the Dancing Club gives a dance. This dance is more or less of a debut at which all the new stars may display their talents. Louis Scheele is boy leader of the club and Adele Shefferman is girl leader. Ioan Daly is secretary and lohn Valantiejus is the treasurer. CHEERLEADERS SQUAD I The purpose of the Cheerleaders Squad is to promote school spirit. Their program calls for organizing the student body so as to give vocal support to the team. Some time back the cheerleaders organized a Cheering Squad. This squad was composed of boys and girls who were to appear at the games and support the cheerleaders. The squad was a success but because of the work involved in the upkeep it was decided to discontinue it. In order to secure the same results it was decided to organize a definite pro- gram. The cheerleaders printed the names of the cheers on huge placards so as to facilitate announcing the cheers. They distributed mimeographed sheets containing the cheer and improvised new cheering routines. This new program woke up the student body and secured a response never attained before. The new response contributed not a little to the success of our teams. The cheering of our squad so impressed the principal of Franklin High School that he Wrote them a letter congratulating them on their excellent show of spirit at the game. Miss Anna Hajek is faculty adviser of the club and Helen Campbell is the captain. Marjorie Bartscher is lieutenant and Lorraine Clark is treasurer. PHYSICAL EFFICIENCY CLUB I Each term the Physical Efficiency Club gives a dance. This is part of its activities. The Physical Efficiency Club is composed of the healthiest girls in the P.T. department. The P.E. girls are tested for health defects, posture, walk, limp, heart, etcetera. Only a select few make the club each term. All this as we can readily see is in keeping with its purpose to maintain in the Health De- partment an organization which endeavors to promote healthfulness and right living. Raising the standards of physical efficiency is the natural outcome. The Physical Efficiency Club is the only club of this sort in Newtown. The Boys' Health Education Department sponsors a club whose aims are similar to those of P.E. but whose program is more active. That club is the Gym Captains' Team. The club holds discussions on health at its meetings and does all in its power to promote healthful and clean living. H071 The president of the Physical Efficiency Club is Edna Schmarl. Eleanor Baker is the club's vice-president and Mar- tha Pickett is the secretary. Miriam Mladineo is the treas- urer and Mrs. Ella Cox is the faculty adviser. VIRGIL CLUB I The chief activity of the Virgil Club is publishing the New- town "Nuntium." The "Nun- tium" is the only magazine in Newtown which is published in Latin. At the beginning of each term the Virgil Club selects the top Language Clubs students from its list of appli- cants and proceeds to consider the grave problem of initiations. The new members are put through many and severe ordeals, one of which is the translating of a few passages of Cicero. The faculty adviser of the club, Mrs. Katherine Vincent, selects the staff and explains their various duties to them. The staff covers all news which pertains to the Virgil Club or the Latin Department. The club sends in anecdotes, puzzles, stories, etc., written in Latin. One of the reasons why the magazine is so valuable to Latin students is the fact that it contains a wealth of cultural material. The student who needs this cultural material for examinations is usually at a loss where to find it unless he has a copy of the magazine. Francis Koch is the president and Ralph Dykes is vice-president of the Virgil Club. Marjory Rosser acts as secretary and Anna Sullivan as treasurer. LE CERCLE FRANCAIS I The meetings of Le Cercle Francais, the French club, are carried on ex- clusively in French. The faculty feels that this practice will encourage the study of the language and help the students to understand it better. The club frequently invites the French teachers to lecture on French culture, literature, etc. At one time Mr. Palleri was invited to lecture to the club on his experiences in France. Mr. Palleri brought a map to the club meeting and intended to base his talk on the map. When he arrived he discovered that he l108l I.'l1l."CTIlI."'.IO l'l'.lI."' mHbQZbwm wqwo HHQWH4 H091 ZPZWMQ MHMHOOW 5020! had brought a map of Italy instead. The club received a lecture on Italian culture and literature. Le Cercle Francais is an honor club whose members are selected from the honor students of the French Department. Many of the members are French by birth, while others have traveled in France. These members usually lecture the club on their experiences. Some of these members have introduced French games and customs to the club and the meetings are livelier as a result. Lillian Lari is president of the French club and Margaret Fallier is vice- president. M. Bartlett is the faculty adviser and Odette Monory is secretary. lrving Klotz is treasurer. GERMAN HONOR SOCIETY I Each term, at the German assembly, awards are made for the term's best work in German. The students who are chosen are awarded little German honor pins. These pins are donated by the German Honor Society. This is in keeping with its purpose to further interest in the study of the German language. This club has an extremely active program. Each term the German Honor Society gives a dance. The proceeds from this dance go towards the purchase of the honor pins and toward their biannual party. This party incidentally is an important event in the social calendar of the German Honor Society. The members entertain' as well as the alumni who enjoy themselves more than the club members. At Christmas time the club has a tree and a program of German material is in order. German Christmas carols are sung, old legends retold and a talk is given on the different methods of celebrating Christmas. The students of the German Honor Society are all honor students in German. Miss Iudith Brodkin is the faculty adviser of this club and Howard Morgan is the president. Eleanor Kessler is the vice-president, Theodora Fette is the secretary and William Leuchtenberg is treasurer. SPANISH HONOR SOCIETY I The aim of the Spanish Honor Society is to foster a high degree of scholar- ship in the Spanish Department. The club has an active program whose purpose is to fulfill this aim. They sponsor Va Spanish Coaching Club whose members are Spanish honor students. These students coach and help the students who require aid in order to pass. As a result of their program fewer and fewer failures are reported. The Spanish Honor Society also tries to spread an interest in Spanish culture H101 IMHZPWM WGFO QZHEOPOQ mwHZbwm MHMHOOW WOZOE H111 232'-'I-":P""1"' WOZOE MHMHOOM and the Spanish students are encouraged to devote more time to this phase of their work. Costumes and flags are collected and the Spanish room has models of Spanish carts and baskets. The "El Faro" magazine staff is composed of Spanish Honor Society members. The club itself contributes actively to its support by subscriptions and con- tributions. Betty Gibbons is president of the Spanish Honor Society. Francis Laxar is vice- president and Helen Waite is secretary. William Aznaran is treasurer and Miss Marie Louise Soley is the faculty adviser. SPANISH COACHING CLUB l The one sure way to create student interest in a subject is to allow the students to work on it. The aim ofthe Spanish Coaching Club is to aid those students who need help in the language and to cultivate an interest in Spanish. The student who coaches a subject is sure to learn more about the subject. It stands to reason that if a person drills verbs every day he will know his verbs better than the average student. He also takes a greater interest in the subject. The students who need help receive coaching from honor students. The many puzzling points which cannot be explained in the classroom because of lack of time are cleared up during the coaching period. In many cases the coach and the student do the next day's homework. In this way possible mistakes on the part of the student receiving help are avoided. This system also insures a homework paper for each and cuts down on the unprepared marks. The teachers are thus assured that their students are doing at least forty-five minutes of work a day. Tillie Altman is president, Doris Mylott is vice-president and Mary Tierney is secretary. Adeline Kleine is the treasurer and Miss Mary Chambers is the faculty adviser. ITALIAN HONOR SOCIETY I The Italian Honor Society enjoys the distinction of being the only club in school which engages in three separate activities. The purpose of this club is to promote an interest in Italian and to provide social activities for its members. In order to satisfy all its members, the club publishes a paper, sponsors a dance, and sponsors an Italian night in Newtown High School. The club is also informed of the activities of the Italian Club council. Vincent Mandese, president, and Mrs. Catherine S. Manderino, faculty adviser, correspond with the club council. The council secures opera tickets at a low rate for the club, gives teas and other social affairs and is able to supply tickets for entertainment of an Italian nature. H121 wdvn QZHHZHWW zomemmmwm mmwHwQw H O M E QZHMWGZ WGFO The club Works in order to make its dance a success and the money is used to help publish the ltalian paper, "ll Circolof' "ll Circolo" is the club paper and depends upon subscription and the dance proceeds for expenses. The ltalian night features some famous Italian play. The play, usually a farce, is produced entirely by the club. The club builds sets and conducts re- hearsals. The program also features some arias from Italian operas sung by members, a talk, a comedy team, if the members are so inclined, and some orchestral selection. The other officers of the club are Rose Bananti as Vice-president, Florence Fortes, secretary, and Gladys Castelvecchi as treasurer. GARRETSON SCRIBES I ln keeping with its purpose, "to encourage and improve student Work in literary fields," the Garretson Scribes sponsored a short-story contest this term, entered a poetry contest and actively supported the "Scribe" magazine. The Scribes meet in the Garretson Library. They are called the Garretson Scribes in honor of Garret I. Garretson. Mrs. Garretson, interested in the Scribes, often attends meetings and usually provides the Garretson Scribes with a guest speaker. The Garretson Scribes include poets, essayists, playwrights, short-story Writers and a few budding novelists. Members contribute literary Work which is read at the meeting. The Work is then discussed and criticisms offered. Much of the criticism is constructive and the author often improves his Work thereby. The Scribes often read anonymous contributions and the club attempts to guess the authors by a study of the style. The president of the Scribes is Robert Goldstein, Whose pet hobby is caring for and breeding snakes. The vice-president, Francis Koch, is musically in- clined and the secretary, Marjory Rosser, is an avid hockey fan. The treasurer, Mary Fallon, and faculty adviser, Miss Frances Butterfield, are interested in poetry. PRINTING CLUB l The purpose of the Printing Club is to improve the graphic arts. The club has access to a printing press and conducts experiments in that line. They study make-up of different pages and try to use forms of type which will be pleasing and yet striking. The boys are engaged in the theory and practice of sound, neat make-up. The study of printing is truly an art. There are so few good printers that there is a serious deficiency. There are good printers of course, but the printer Who can achieve an artistic touch by using cold type is a true artist. The life and H141 quality of many a magazine depends upon the format and type arrangements. The boys have printing charts and dis- cuss the values and especial qualities of each kind of type. The club makes a "dummy" of a page and lists the type re- quired. The page is set up and a few sheets are printed. The club then discusses the good and poor qualities of the fin- ished product. The club was formerly known as the Graphic Arts Club and is a comparatively new club. According to Alfred Yudes, president, the need was so widely felt that the formation of such a club was imperative. practical AHS Clubs Thomas Slavin is Vice-presi- dent and Dante Lenti is secre- tary. Mr. Eugene V. Holzer is the faculty adviser. HOME NURSING CLUB l The Home Nursing Club enjoys the distinction of being the only club in Newtown which gives students a chance to learn about their future professions. Many students who intend to become nurses, dietitians or doctors find it wise to gain a little practical knowledge by joining the Home Nursing Club. The club's aim is to stimulate an interest in nursing as a profession. The term "nursing" is a general one and includes all of the fields of hospital Work open to women. The club holds discussions on subjects which would interest the club as a Whole. They are taught something of the scientific aspects of nursing. The dietitians learn the values of different foods and how to plan balanced meals. The intricacies of the calory are all revealed to the members. Strangely enough their one difficulty is their advantage. The courses must be kept general enough to interest all the members. This, however, gives the members a smattering of all the domestic sciences and thus helps them in later life. Katherine Ludecke and Audrey Parker are president and vice-president re- spectively. Ronina Lippolus is corresponding secretary and Mary Fallon is recording secretary. Edna Van Allan is the treasurer and Miss Bishop the faculty adviser of the club. H151 I-IEARTHSTCNE . CLUB I The Hearthstone Club was organized to promote educational and social interests in our everyday life. The members are all girls and participate in a program which carries out their aims. The l-learthstone Club is similar to the Home Nursing Club in some respects. Their aims differ but both have educational meetings. Whenever a luncheon is given at Newtown, the l-learthstone Club members assist. They help plan the menu, lay the table and serve. The success of these luncheons is due largely to the efforts of the Hearthstone Club members. This club is an honor club and is open only to students who have received an eighty-five per cent or more in the foods Regents. The club naturally has pro- grams which pertain to food problems. There are dietetic discussions, menu planning and table-serving problems. The club strives to improve on these points and to educate its members further along these lines. Bernice Regan is the president of this club and Harriet Dalton is the vice- president. Adele Shefferman is its secretary and Dorothy Kibuik its treasurer. TEXTILE ARTS CLUB I The aim of the Textile Arts Club is to further interest in clothing as related to the current fashions and the various prevalent techniques in design so that the girl may express her own personality. The girls of this club are active in the theory and practice of designing good clothes. Since the clothing budget of the average girl is usually limited, it is imperative that a girl choosetasteful clothes as economically as possible. The girls therefore learn to select all-purpose ensembles which possess variety and chic. They also learn to plan an effective wardrobe. The shorter person, for instance, should wear vertical stripes in order to appear taller. These and many other theories of dress designing are put into practice. The girls also design their clothes. They feel that designing is an art and that they should be able to express their personality in clothing just as an artist is able to express himself in oils or in water color. To carry out this program the girls sketch the dress, select the color to fit their appearance and then choose the material. Their results are so outstanding that they prove that textile study is an art. Charlotte Hildebrandt and Beatrice Eritsch are president and vice-president respectively. Ieanne Cusick is secretary and Helen Di Lorenzo is treasurer. Miss Hilda V. Berntson is faculty adviser. CAMERA CLUB l The Camera Club is one of the uncommon clubs in Newtown. lt caters to the hobby of photography instead of some scholastic attainment. lts purpose is to develop interest in photography as a hobby and to improve the skill and H161 mewb mwHHNme UJCIHQ MZOHMIHWPWE UdCII."Q H171 UUCIL-'O ihbvrfllihwn technique of those engaged or willing to engage in work with the camera. Towards achieving this end the Camera Club sponsors a contest. The members are invited to compete and submit prints for prizes. One of this term's prize winners was so interesting that Frank Beza, the photographer, was asked to do a complete series for the yearbook. Each term the Camera Club sponsors a dance. The proceeds of their dance go towards equipment for the club. The club program is such a practical one that the members are taught to develop and print pictures. The members are also acquainted with the various picture-taking techniques. There are talks by members on enlarging, tinting and "action" pictures. The club also has access to a darkroom. Many members take pictures in the afternoon, develop them and have prints the next day. George Herbert is president of this club and Edward Haag is the vice-president. Dorothy Kibuik is secretary and Eleanor Kessler acts as treasurer. Mr. Lazarus Lipschitz is faculty adviser. FINE ARTS CLUB I The members of the Fine Arts Club are so proficient that it is not surprising to find art editors, poster-contest winners, and scholarship students on its roster. The aim of the club is to further the members' talents in the accomplishment of creative work. The club members are members of the art course and are the select of the department. The members are taught different art techniques which are impossible to in- clude in the curriculum. The club also affords an opportunity for students to work on projects and ideas in a more helpful atmosphere. They are provided with proper equipment, work desks and with everything else they may need. When a publication in Newtown organizes its personnel, it usually selects its art editor from the Fine Arts Club. Fred Kittel is art editor of the "Scribes" Margot Kellermann is art editor of the yearbook. lulian Alexander and Fred Kittel are the art editors of the "Flam- beau" staff. Some of the art work of the club includes plates, posters, magazine illustrations, metal work, soap sculpture and Woodcuts. Miss Loretta Hart is the faculty adviser of this organization and Margot Keller- mann is the president. Betty Wright and Georgibell Parker are its vice-president and secretary respectively. MASQUE AND BAUBLE I One of the most unusual clubs in Newtown is Masque and Bauble, the senior dramatic club. Masque and Bauble's purpose is to encourage dramatic talent in its members, to provide entertainment for Newtown students and to suggest H181 ww! P MGD UZ WCHZDIW l"'1l." l"1ZI-"TJ warn mewb 9 WOHZGH l OHHw3bwU UJCIHQ I to all a pleasant and profitable use for the new leisure in the production of worthwhile plays. Masque and Bauble, founded by the late Miss Adele Carll, produces two or three plays a year. Admission is charged to one only, the Spring play. The other plays are given before assemblies. The Spring play usually runs for three days. In the past they have produced such famous plays as "The Rivals" and "Dulcy." Many Masque and Bauble members have found employment in stock com- panies and one member of the poster staff won an art scholarship on the merits of his poster alone. This term the entire set for "Dulcy" was manufactured by the students. The painting was done by the members and the stage crew was made up of Newtown students. Wilbur Colbert is president of Masque and Bauble and Miss lsabelle Giroux is faculty adviser. Christine Quinby is vice-president and Kathryn Fleming is secretary-treasurer. IUNICR DRAMATIC CLUB l The purpose of the Iunior Dramatic Club is to introduce the early grades into the first principles of acting. This is done by simple plays and recitation. The Iunior Dramatic Club's purpose is Worthwhile for many reasons. lt affords an outlet' for the ambitions of the younger student. Students who have acting ability and are not eligible for the Senior Club are encouraged to join the lunior Club. There they are put to work acting in plays, reciting at assemblies and club meetings. This training is extremely valuable because it is a good foundation for serious drama later on. The people who have no acting talent find it out and the people who do possess it find out. The lunior Dramatic Club serves as a training groundi When they are eligible for the Senior Dramatic Club the members may enter it without tryouts and are usually accepted on their Iunior Dramatic Club experience. Each year the lunior Dramatic Club produces a play for which no admission is charged. This play is given at one of the assemblies for one day only. Miss Mary McNally is the faculty adviser of the lunior Dramatic Club. C. Anne Lepanto is the president and lack Zaner and Pearl Ort are vice-president and secretary. COMMERCIAL CLUB l The Commercial Club is a club with a really fine and sincere purpose. The need of such a club cannot be underestimated. The commercial students are under a severe handicap. Their unusual program, the subjects they choose I1201 :TN Vx f 1 m4HHbwmw00Q mmmwq F 5 5 5 wmmi FPHGWMZEOQ WGHO 2 m4HHbwmw00Q Q mmwvo Nmmi and their hours are so different from the usual run that the commercial student tends to lose school spirit. Consequently, when a club like the Commercial Club is organized, it deserves all the help and credit possible. This club acts as an outlet and nothing more. The students chosen are not chosen solely for scholarship or social reasons. They are chosen for all these reasons, The club makes a wholehearted attempt to collect a group of outstanding students and make high-school life more interesting and pleasant. Miss lrene Reinshagen is the faculty adviser of this club and Arthur Simmons is the president. Eileen Schlegel and Amelia Strauss are Vice-president and secretary respectively. Harold Smith acts as treasurer. The purpose of the Commercial Club is so unusual and worthwhile that it deserves repeating. Their aim is to maintain in the Commercial Department an organization which shall endeavor to promote scholarship, to increase social feeling and to create a deeper interest in the various subjects of that department. its members shall be chosen from among those of the Commercial Department who aspire to the highest and best in scholarship, helpfulness and character. THE CO-OPERATIVE COURSE l "Experience is the best teacher" might be the slogan for co-operative work. This course appeals to students wanting business and office experience and to students who are interested in earning money to pay school expenses or to help their families. They are trained for business in the most practical Way- that is, by holding a real position. The course is divided into two types of jobs-Paid and Service. The duties of those on paid jobs are messenger work, merchandise checking, marking, stock work, wrapping and junior clerical Work. The students are employed by such firms as R. H. Macy 5: Company, Lord CS Taylor, Best df Company and Western Union. Pupils on service jobs work in the Newtown High School offices or offices of other schools. These students do such types of work as filing, typing, telephoning, mimeographing, messenger work and stock work. ln ad- dition to a good school record, satisfactory job ratings are required for graduation. Applicants for jobs are selected with considerable care. Before any co- operatives are sent for an interview they are "inspected" carefully to be sure that they present a neat, businesslike appearance. Erom the day they enter the course, co-operatives are trained for successful participation in business with all that requires in respect to personality and character. The Co-operative Course is not a short cut to a job, but it does offer an op- portunity for business training through actual experience. H221 U2bw WCIIHQ UIUILTIIO H231 WCPO HZ mm OU CHESS CLUB l Although there is no such provision in the club constitution, girls are barred from the Chess Club. Some time back two adventurous representatives ot the tairer sex attempted to take the Chess Club by storm. They didn't. Amid surly mutterings of "a man isn't safe anymore" and "they'll wreck the team," the girls were turned away. The Chess Club has been, and it seems that it always will be, a man's retreat. ln B21 every Friday the chess tans gather to play, kibitz, heckle or converse. A man's asylum truly! The students on the Chess Team are the survivors of a severe elimination con- test which is organized every term. Because ot this rigid test the team members are the best available. The Chess Team has already won one Queens title and has the reputation ot being one ot the strongest teams in Queens. The faculty adviser ot the club is Mr. Baymond Dunphy, a math teacher. Some club members revenge their bad math marks by trouncing Mr. Dunphy in a very convincing manner. The president ot the club is Harold Bermell and the vice-president is Paul Green. The secretary-treasurer of the club is William Eisemann. A BAND l The purpose ot the Newtown High School Band is "to be ot service to the school by parti- cipation in all appropriate school activities, to acquaint students with tine band litera- ture, to broaden their musical and social interests and to pro- mote the school spirit and pa- triotism at Newtown through inspirational music." ln order to carry out these varied aims, a complex and intelligent or- ganization is required. The band has three drum majors, Marion Miladines, lohn Schultz and William Abale. The busi- f ness manager is Mr. Iohn M. Music Clubs Baker, Ir., and the general manager is Allan Bamstead. Mr. William P. Fisher conducts the band. The Newtown High School Band appears regularly at assemblies, games and usually participates in parades, llZ4l Senior Orchesira I 125 I The Newtown Band received the rating of one of the best bands in New York City. One of the band's activities is to maintain its own fife and drum corps. This organization began as a unit within the band until it grew so that it became a separate unit. The band members devote their spare time teaching new- comers the art of drumming and bugling. Mr. Fisher teaches the fife. The first time the fife and drum corps appeared at the assembly it played "The Thundererf' lts rendition was so stirring that it stole the show from the band. DO RE Ml CLUB I Do Be Mi Club is the only merit honor club in the school. The club, whose members are students in the Music Department, is devoted to the study of musical subjects. The members, honor students, are either singers, composers or players. The meetings are conducted more or less informally. The club sings as a unit or has its members entertain individually. The club discusses the merits of the various singers and choral groups in the country. The classics are also dis- cussed and their aims clarified. Debates on' modern music as compared with classical music are held and the true aesthetic qualities of each are enumerated. The group is a typical artists' gathering. Some members discuss various playing techniques and others, the latest concert or opera. The club in this manner hopes to diffuse culture among the students and provide them with an audience for their ideas and innova- tions. A The president of this club is Helen Mepp. Mr. Irving Valentine, director of the orchestra, is the faculty adviser. Irene Shteklia is the vice-president and Mary Ellen Nepp is secretary. ORCHESTRA l Rivaling the band in popularity, the Orchestra also has its following. The Orchestra, under the direction of Mr. lrving Valentine, plays at assembly. While the band plays the more martial type of music, the orchestra is devoted to classical and semi-classical numbers. The Orchestra, an extremely select organization, is made up of musicians of a more advanced standing. Some time ago the Orchestra had most of its instru- ments destroyed in the famous flood. The school ran a tag day to raise money for new ones. Out of appreciation the Orchestra decided to give a concert for these students who really appreciate good music. Mr. Edwin Eranko Goldman, the famous conductor, Was engaged as guest conductor. This concert was such a success that the Orchestra decided to continue giving concerts. Each time H261 WGHQ 4mHmH3mmQ FPOHZEOMH WHWHOOM WOZOE H271 4mwwwQOHm4mw WGFO they have done so it has been with increasing success. The Orchestra because of its musical proficiency has also given selections over the air. Station WNYC was the station from which they broadcasted. Emily Schroeder is president of the Orchestra and William I. Zimmermann is vice-president. Irene Shteklia serves as secretary. TECHNICAL HONOR SOCIETY l The purpose of the Technical Honor Society is to uphold the standard and ideals of the school, to Work toward the pro- motion of the study of technical subjects and to advance inter- est in arts and science, to sup- port all Worthy projects con- nected with the school, espe- cially with the Technical De- partment and such as may be directly connected with the study of scientific Work. The Technical Honor Society is an extremely active group as it participates in many Technical Department projects. The mem- bers help to arrange the pro- jects during open-school Week and a large number of the exhibits entered are made by the Technical Society members. The members are also interested in the Children's Science Fair and usually enter two or three exhibits. The members helped build the hothouse frames for the agricultural course farm. Some time back, when the Chemistry Department Won a first prize with its blast furnace, the Technical Honor Society shared in the credit. The members helped the exhibitors on the sheet-metal Work. Kjell Goronson is the president of this society and Iohn Charlton is the vice- president. Vincent Sheridan acts as secretary and Harold Vita as treasurer. Mr. Rudolph M. Paulson is the faculty adviser. CHEMISTRY CLUB I The Chemistry Club, headed by john Charlton, actively carries out its pledge to foster interest in chemistry. Each year the Chemistry Club enters the Children's Science Fair and usually finishes with a few first prize exhibits. In Science Clubs I 128 I the past they have made such exhibits as a working blast furnace, analyses of the different types of glass and spectroscopes. The Chemistry Club leads all the other Newtown science clubs in prizes. Many of its members have won scholarships. Many members attended lectures on aeronautics, engineering and mineralogy. During club meetings a member will describe his experimental work in some field and explain his results. The club will discuss his experi- ment, offer criticisms, ask questions or offer suggestions. Last term for the first time the club published a newspaper. This paper con- tained contributions from all science clubs and its success was due largely to the efforts of Samuel Gerber. According to Mrs. Ruth Arnold, their faculty ad- viser, the paper will be published again this term. The vice-president, Horst Hoyer, the secretary, Halina Chomowicz, and the club as a whole are attempting to improve the paper and to recapture some prizes at this term's Science Fair. PHYSIOGBAPHY CLUB l Every so often you come across a club which looks and seems to be like every other but isn't in one respect. The Physiography Club is a typical science club run on the same pattern as the others, yet it is different. Students are par- ticularly anxious to join the Physiography Club. Practically every person who is a member of this club lists it ahead of all others. Perhaps it is the air of com- radeship which the club has or the topics which it discusses which make the Physiography Club so popular. The Physiography Club arranges its programs so as to fulfill its purpose: "to promote an interest in physiography among the members of the club and among the students of Newtown High School." The club discusses pertinent topics and has its students report on whatever experiments they have been conducting. Many members have private collections and often display them and lecture on them at meetings. Bernard Miller is the president of the Physiography Club and Katherine Koteiwo occupies the office of vice-president. Vida M. Greig is secretary and Frances Demartes is treasurer. Miss Charlotte Preuss is their faculty adviser. BOYS' AND GIRLS' BIOLOGY CLUBS l Some years ago these two clubs were one. However, due to differences of opinion the club separated into a boys' and a girls' group. Since then several moves have been made to consolidate these groups but they have been unsuc- cessful. Miss Carrie E. Day is the faculty adviser of the Girls' Biology Club and Carolyn Rhodes is president. lean Coleman is vice-president and Barbara McDougall H291 is treasurer. Frances Dunning and Dorothy Claypole are corresponding and recording secretaries respectively. The aim of both clubs is to foster an interest in the biological sciences among the students of Newtown. The means to this end are devious. Both clubs exhibit in the Children's Science Fair and for the past two years a represen- tative of the Boys' Biology Club has spoken at the Museum. During Parents' Week, an exhibit is set up on the lower foyer where it usually attracts a great deal of attention. The club does microscope experiments and discusses the results. lt has lec- tures and features nature walks which are extremely popular with the mem- bers. The president of the Boys' Biology Club is lerry Freirich. lohn Mendicino is vice-president and acted as president during Freirich's extended absence. Mrs. Fanny Sanders is the faculty adviser of this division and Lewis Iacobs is the treasurer. David Augenblick performs the secretarial duties. ABC AND XYZ - I Newtown has two mathematics clubs. One for the boys and one for the girls. Both clubs have the common purpose of fostering and promoting a general interest in mathematics in all its forms. Each term the clubs sponsor a school dance. The proceeds of this dance go toward club pins and other expenses. The clubs, both honor organizations, hold discussions on mathematics and study mathematical problems. They also delve into seemingly unmathematical subjects and emerge turning about with a new set of relationships. For example, it has discussed mathematics in snow crys- tals, art posters, the graphs of different curves and values. They are interested, too, in the old standby, the fourth dimension. XYZ, the girls' division, usually gives a spring picnic along with its other activi- ties. Arlene Morton and Anne Sullivan are president and vice-president re- spectively. Alice Boardman is the secretary and Helena Chomowicz is the treasurer. Mrs. McGlinchy is their faculty adviser. Alfred Iacobs is the president of ABC, the boys' division, and Peter Abramo is the vice-president. Lawrence O'Neill is the financial secretary and Francis Laxar is the recording secretary. Mr. Iohn Traynor is their faculty adviser. PHYSICS CLUB I The Science Department feels that due to the brevity of the school term students are unable to do detailed work in their respective subjects. Conse- quently they miss an important phase of the science. In order to remedy this, science clubs are organized with the purpose of studying those aspects which are not included in the curriculum. The Physics Club is such a club. lt en- deavors to show the unusual and not widely known phases of physics to create an interest in the subject. H301 wGHO mOHm4mW NNN UZ? OW? mwGrO H311 mwwHQ U25 MMOW mwdwn MQOFOHW The Physics Club conducts experiments, gives talks, has guest lectures and builds projects for the children's Science Fair. Whenever they can secure them, they show motion pictures of industrial processes. Last term an ice-cream con- cern sent a lecturer down with films and he provided an interesting afternoon by showing motion pictures and lecturing on the subject. The Physics Club has as its president Clifford Sitton. George Spies is vice- president and Ross Fleisig and Frank Rode are secretary and treasurer respec- tively. Their faculty adviser is Mr. Charles Katz. Mr. Katz is a physics teacher and is able to find endless topics for club meetings. C PHOTOPLAY CLUB l The Photoplay Club is really a gathering of cinema critics. This club discusses a motion picture in its entirety. No de- tails are neglected. Script, pho- tography, settings, casting, gowns, music, all are criticized or praised in turn. The Photo- play Club is interested in insti- gating a desire for superior cinematic productions. They feel that if the -,intricacies of production were laid open the public would appreciate its artistry and demand it when it is lacking. The club also dis- cusses books and plays in con- ' nection with motion pictures. Cm-,eng Affairs The good points of each are de- tailed and possible means of making them into pictures are discussed. The club voted on best productions of 1937 and results revealed that it had selected two of the three which were awarded by critics. The club had a representative of the Fox studios at one meeting. The representative led a general discussion touching upon censor- ship, script and casting. Later in the term the club expects to have some cele- brated actress lead a meeting. Since the club is a unit of a national organization it has the privilege of attend- ing previews at no cost. The president, William Leuchtenburg is chiefly re- sponsible for securing this privilege and for founding the club. Other officers are Ralph Kisch, vice-president, and Rose Gentile and ludith Turner secretary and treasurer respectively. Miss Clara l-lays is their faculty adviser. H321 I.'l'.l:Dl'-JUJI."1Q UJl"'.1'.5U warn 4PwwOHOIw H331 HZMHWO UHOO0 WGFO RES GESTAE l The aim of Res Gestae is to stimulate and promote an interest in history. This club chooses its members-to-be from history honor students. The appli- cant must have a previous term mark of at least ninety and must have the recommendation of his history teacher. Res Gestae holds discussions on current affairs and, at times, the club has guest speakers who lecture on their chosen topics. One of the duties of Res Gestae is to take care of the essays for the "l-lerald Tribune" Essay Contest. The club tries to have them all typed and delivers them on schedule. Among the winners of prizes and honorable mention are a great many Res Gestae members. The club members have won a total of about five hundred dollars since the contests were inaugurated. The club also sees plays and discusses the themes. The plays are of some cur- rent social problem. According to Mr. Henry Reinshagen, this is one of the best methods of teaching history. The president of this club is George Elliot and the vice-president is Lillian Lari. Margaret Fallier and Arlene Morton are treasurer and secretary respectively. OCCID-ORIENT CLUB l Although the Gccid-Orient Club is not a debating society or a discussion club, the members have to give a two-minute speech on some country before they are accepted. The aim of the Occid-Orient Club is to further an interest in the peoples of the world. The average high-school student has rather a distorted View of the in- habitants of foreign lands and knows very little if anything of their customs and traditions. ln order to correct this the Occid-Orient Club attempts to spread culture and knowledge concerning these countries. The members give lectures on the countries they have visited. After each lec- ture the club asks the speaker questions and may request him to go into more detail on some particular topic. The traditions, customs, clothing, literature, art, cuisine or any other relevant topics are discussed. Mrs. Ada Seabury, the faculty adviser, has traveled extensively in the East and often lectures on the nations of the East. With'her aid many customs are explained which other- wise would seem mysterious. The president of this club is Bart Green and Ianet Galbraith is vice-president. Eunice Kenny is the secretary and William Leuchtenburg serves as treasurer. NEWTOWN UNION I The largest collection of hecklers Newtown has meets every other week in the Garretson Library. Their purpose is to give an opportunity for discussion, but any person who has tried out for the Newtown Union will emphatically deny this. The method of judging applicants is efficient if not new. The appli- H341 mC:L"Q ZSO.-12I."'.IZ zo-'ZCI H351 wal-in ,.,L-.m4L11mOO5U cant is asked to give his name and section, usually three or four times, and told to select a slip of paper. I-le is then requested to ad lib on the topic for about two minutes. I-le then attempts to offer a dissertation on "Propaganda and Pretzels" and at the same time answer any caustic remarks from club 'members Do not let me give the impression that the best hecklers are males. They are not. The secretary, Kathleen McGreevy, and the treasurer, Christine Quinby, carry off top honors among the hecklers. However, when they aren't heckling or offering vitriolic verbations, the New- town Union conducts a debating contest. The contest is open to members only and choice of topic is up to the speaker. The winners are selected by the club. The Newtown Union also attends plays and discusses them. Their faculty adviser is Miss Ruth Bass, an English teacher. lames O'Gorman is president and lohn Detmold is vice-president. PAN-AMERICAN CLUB l The Pan-American Club is a member of the Pan-American council. This council, made up of the Pan-American clubs of New York City, meets every year and holds a conference with other councils. Our Pan-American Club holds an assembly every term and attempts to carry out its altruistic aims. The Pan-American Club gave the most unusual dance of the season. lts members were dressed in costumes that represented the Pan- American countries. This was the only dance this term which featured cos- tumes. The aim of Pan-American is to promote the cause of good will and friendship among the youth of the Western hemisphere. The club works toward the ful- fillment of this aim in every manner possible. They hold discussions on Pan- Americanism and try to work toward the promotion of good will by corre- sponding with the other youth councils. Mr. Walter Porter is the faculty adviser of Pan-American and Edna Lindeborg is the president. Ethel Schreiner is vice-president and Ruth Schwartz is secre- tary. Moe Stebman is the treasurer and Annette Vannier and Katherine Katiene are the art editors. Vida Greig acts as censor and Evelyn Davidson and Ruth Goldblum are in charge of music. RCOSEVELT CLUB I The Roosevelt Club is one of the few clubs in Newtown which does not have a material end as its purpose. Many clubs attempt to help students raise marks, others do active service. The Roosevelt Club, however, has stated that its purpose is to keep alive the practical ideals of Theodore Roosevelt. This is an extremely arduous goal to achieve. Nowadays people are apt to confuse modern ideals and actions with crudity, sophistry or boorishness. The truer and simpler aims are too often discarded. The Roosevelt Club corresponds with the Roosevelt House in New York and is kept posted regarding its activities. The club holds discussions at meetings H361 l"'.IU'-IDJOUI l'l'.lmI-I qmmwgmww mr H371 wwmem Aww x upon subjects pertaining to Theodore Roosevelt. Articles of interest are gath- ered and information is collected for club use. A club of this sort is extremely valuable. If one were interested in Theodore Roosevelt one could find a good deal of cultural material and facts concerning him at the club. This club is open to sixth and seventh termers. The president of the Roosevelt Club is Wilbur Colbert. Frances Silverman serves as vice-president and Edna Lindeborg as secretary. Dolores McBrien is the treasurer and Mr. Clyde Nichols the faculty adviser. HELAMBEAUH I The "Elambeau," a newspa- per published by members of Le Cercle Erancais, is another fine example of Newtown jour- nalism. Each term a new staff is appointed by the faculty ad- viser, Mrs. Marguerite Maire. The staff then meets and opens discussion on its make-up plans. The price of printing is fixed, the quality of its paper is determined, the number and type of features are decided upon, its format selected and its publication schedule ar- ranged. The various French classes and Le Cercle Francais ' are invited to contribute. The publications reporters are assigned to re- views, stories, jokes and cul- tural material. The chosen material is then corrected and rewritten if necessary. From there on publication and circulation duties fall into the hands of its two business managers, Vincent Mandese and Lawrence O'Neill. The editor in chief of this term's staff is Aneli Cahn. Her associate editors are lacqueline Backstrom, Ieanne Coleman, Francis Brandt, Betty Casselli, Mar- jory Luke, Theodora Eette and Ioseph Lewin. The art editors are lulian Alex- ander and Fred Kittel, while the reporters are Erica Ditzel, lohn Horwatti, Theo- dore Kushner, Iames O'Gorman and Peggy Paris. Tl-IE "SCRlBE" l The "Scribe" magazine is the only Newtown magazine printed in English. The purpose of the "Scribe" is to give the finer literary efforts of Newtown a large audience, lt caters to the more literary type of writing and contains ll38l poetry, prose, essays, short stories, tales, legends, book reviews and play, movie and art resumes. The literary staff of "Scribe" magazine is selected from the Garretson Scribes, the school's literary club. A writer of each type is asked to join the staff. ln this way, poetry will be considered by a poet and, if turned down, it Will be because of poor quality rather than a lack of understanding on the part of the editor. ln like manner, essays and short stories are considered by people who know and write them. Every editor of the "Scribe" so far has had a financial and literary success. The combination of good make-up, art and literary work seems to be a suc- cessful one. The editor in chief of the "Scribe" is Richard M. Tynan. The art editor is Fred- erick Kittel. Mary Fallon, Robert Goldstein, Lawrence O'Neill, Randolph Gabers, Ralph Dykes, Francis Koch, and Leslie I. Hellenberg are on the literary staff. Mrs. luliet P. Filler and Mr. Iames Kernan are its faculty advisers. "X-RAY" STAFF I The purpose of the Newtown "X-Ray" is to extend, promote and create throughout Newtown school spirit and knowledge. The "X-Ray" accomplishes this ably by reporting all important scholastic, athletic, political and social news. The "X-Ray" is published about five or six times a term and the entire literary work is done by students. Promising English students are invited to take a journalism course. After two weeks the best students are added to the staff either as regulars or as cub reporters. After the issue comes out the reporter looks at the new issue for a possible assignment. This sheet assigns a story, sets a deadline and limits the number of words. On deadline day all the material is corrected and sent to the printer. He returns the stories set up in type and printed on gallery proofs. The re- porters then write headlines for them as the editors make up their respective columns. The dummies are sent to the printer and he returns a proof. This proof is corrected and sent back. The printer then prints the newspaper according to the proof. The editor in chief of the "X-Ray" is Leonard Ingalls and his associate editors are Francis Laxar and Christine Quinby. Desmond Fairbairn is news editor and Thomas Dent is sports editor. Mrs. Mary MacGarvey is the literary adviser and Miss Gertrude Farley is the business adviser. "EL PARC" STAFF I The "El Faro" magazine is the only magazine in Newtown to win a first prize in the Columbia Scholastic Press Contest. For two terms in succession "El Faro" has gained top honors on the basis of material, format, make-up and manner of presentation. Il39l "El Faro" is the magazine of the Spanish Department and its faculty advisers are Mr. William Griffin and Miss Marie Louise Soley, both Spanish teachers. "El Faro," like the other magazines in Newtown, comes out once a term. This term's literary editor is Desmond Fairbairn. William Aznaran is the busi- ness manager. Fairbairn is in charge of contributions and is responsible for the new-policy of the "El Faro" magazine. This term, in addition to receiving contributions from the Spanish Club and the Spanish Department, "El Faro" is accepting contributions from former members of the Spanish Department. ln this way they hope to receive superior material from the members who have finished their required terms of Spanish. After the contributions are edited they are given to Grace Hummel who is the typist-secretary. Miss Rummel also helps edit the material. William Aznaran is responsible for posting subscription lists and estimating publishing cost. lt is his duty to see that "El Faro" runs within its allotted budget. He is also responsible for the circulation of the magazine. YEARBOOK STAFF l Each term the faculty advisers select the Yearbook Staff from the graduat- ing Seniors. The faculty advisers select their respective editors. Miss Maze C. Gordon selected Peter Fulvio as editor in chief and Margot Kellermann as art editor. Dr. Henry Burnell Shafer selected Clifford Sifton as picture editor and Mary Fallon as assistant picture editor. Mr. William F. Griffin selected Charles Gibbons as business editor and Edith Atherton as club editor. Frank Savastano and Frank Beza were selected as staff photographers, Peter Fulvio is in charge of the literary division of the yearbook and helps com- bine the club and business ends. Edith Atherton is responsible for arranging dates and collecting money for club pictures. Charles Gibbons is in charge of subscriptions, advertising and printing costs. Clifford Sifton and Mary Fallon are chiefly responsible for the individual Senior portraits. Margot Kellermann plans the make-up of the yearbook and is responsible for all the art work. The photographers are responsible to Margot Kellermann and Peter Fulvio. The faculty advisers supervise the entire book and help the students out in matters that might otherwise prove difficult. Peter Fulvio. H401 wwmem Gwmw rm Emma wwmwmmww wwwem NOOwwbm4 H411 SPORTS l Following former memorable teams of Newtown, the athletes of the graduating Class of '38 leave behind an outstanding record. A record typical of the glory that is Newtown'sg one that challenges emulation by future wearers of the red and black. Our teams have taken no less than five Queens Champion- ships: basketball, handball, ten- nis, track, and cross-country with city titles in the latter three. After taking the Queens Cham- pionship and decisively captur- f ing the team scoring honors for that borough in the '37 season, the Pioneer cagers, under the able mentorship of Mr. lohn Nucatola, werevanquished in the semifinals. This year, an even more determined and aggressive team flashed the ban- ners of Newtown. Under the leadership of their diminutive captain, lerry Rizzo, they completed a remarkably successful season. Going into our final game with an unblemished record of fifteen consecutive league victories, we re- ceived a heartbreaking upset from the Flushing quintet. ln defeating Bayside 83-9 during the course of their schedule, the Pioneers took honors for high scoring in P.S.A.l... competition. This is the third successive borough title that Coach Nucatola has captured in his three years of leadership. Confidently advancing to the semifinals, Newtown met little opposition in the Alexander Hamilton team. Led by the high scoring of whipsaw lerry Rizzo, the Harniltonians were severely trounced, 4-26. The city championship was nearing reality! Only thrice before in '27, '28 and '31 has that coveted prize been captured. The only obstacle which presented itself was an unusually strong Benjamin Franklin team. Nevertheless hopes were high. However, the "7-ll" combination of Rizzo and Carroll, failing to click effec- tively, the Newtownites emerged on the short end of a 29-27 score. After draw- ing first blood by two successive field goals, the score seesawed back and forth until the final minutes of play. Although his was the losing team, Iohn "Brownie" Carroll, by scoring nine markers, led both teams in individual scor- ing. l H421 ln looking over the records, we find that the basketball team scored 847 points in twenty-one games-an average of over forty points per game. Against this, their opponents scored but 490, or twenty-three points per game. "Brownie" Carroll led the city in scoring with 218 points while Ierry Rizzo and lerry Dorich were fourth and seventh respectively in the borough. Rizzo was voted the most valuable player in Queens, taking 51.5 points out of a possible 56. All three-Rizzo, Carroll and Dorich--captured positions on the All-Queens Team and Newtown will no doubt be well represented on the All-City. Turning to baseball, we find that the Pioneers finished less favorably. By win- ning nine, losing six and tying one, they captured fourth place in P.S.A.L. com- petition. This was Coach Harry Elbert's initial term at the helm of the nine and, inas- much as he had to mold almost an entirely new squad, the team finished rather well. However, they were not to be outdone in the field of records. By beating lohn Adams l8-6, they tied records for both runs in one game feighteenl and runs in one inning Ctenl. ln addition, Captain Dave Dillon, New- town's initial sacker, hit the season's first home run. The nine is also hard hit by graduation. ln addition to Captain Dave Dillon, those leaving are outfielders Bill Walker and Dick Fitzgerald, and pitchers lohnny Carroll and Ierry Rizzo. Qur two minor sports, handball and swimming, show great promise for cap- turing future honors. The Handball Team, under Mr. Kooperstein, captured the borough champion- ship and emerged second in the race for the city title. The wall team loses Ierry Dorich, Angelo Parisi and Leonard Mahler. Winning two meets, the Swim Squad has progressed slowly because of lack of training facilities. Under the management of Mr. Doyle the team will un- doubtedly come into its own and add new laurels to the name of Newtown. Let us now view with a great deal of pride the honors hung up by our more flourishing and successful teams-Track, Cross-Country and Tennis. All three have won supreme titles in the city and Coaches Werner, Lynch and Rhenn well deserve the praise that is heaped upon them by a grateful Newtown. Living up to their reputation, the Pioneer harriers breezed home in the third annual Queens Track and Field Championship. They ran up a total of seventy- eight points, well outscoring their nearest rival. lt was the fourth consecutive Queens title taken by the Newtownites. The shoe and spike boys then pro- ceeded to "mop up" and captured the city scepter. Adding more trophies to an already overflowing shelf, the Cross-Country Team brought home the city title. Alas, for the last time will opposing teams see the heels of Charlie Gibbons, Bob Dwyer, Oscar Camponeschi, Al Beauchamp, Sid Green, Bill Sorlingas, and Iack Dunphy. Beyond a doubt, Newtown has turned out during the last year one of the fin- est and most brilliantly coached track teams in New York City.

' Led by Hans Qmenitsch, the racqueteers advanced to the leading city match. The severity of Hans' forehand, which could find no equal, set the pace for a Red and Black victory. Bob Dwyer coming through the doubles assured New- town of the city title. lt is interesting to note that although both teams Ctrack and tennisl had pre- viously won Queens honors, it was the first time either had taken the city championship and the first time any Queens school has won the city track championship. And so we take leave of our cherished Alma Mater, leaving behind a memor- able record of achievement. But win or lose, our main pride has been that not for once have we failed to give our all when it was demanded. And not for once have we won when the victory was not crowned with fair sportsmanship and a well-fought game. Murray Flander. WASTED LIFE Sad, through the thick gray-misted night, When the whispering winds in the pin-oak trees Sing, in their muted tones, of light, And sun, and birds in the day-heated breeze, I think of the wasted life I spent In the squeezing walls of a deadened land, Where the odors of life and gray death went Up to the sky, as the burning brand Throws all its heat to the passing clouds And wastes its strength on a burning sun, After taking its force from the open shrouds. Robert C. Goldstein I l45 J ir MISCLLLANY '1". are gm ff i 'S 5 Y 5' S' k ,L , 52 CLASS HISTORY l When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for our class to dissolve the educational bonds which have connected it to Newtown and to assume in the world the separate and responsible station into which the Anti- Peter Pan laws of growing-up shove it, a decent respect for its eventful school life requires that we should possess a record of the many things which have happened prior to the separation. Hence, this class history is attempted. ln the distant future, when the wrinkled members of the Class of '33 pause in their respective tasks Cfor specific detail please see class prophecyl to recollect their high-school life, we hope this history will make them wheeze "By cracky! that's right. l had forgotten all about that." From that memorable afternoon when we, dressed in our schoolday best and carrying our little enveloped records, bravely followed some knowing guide through those labyrinthine halls to be catalogued, tagged and shipped, until that sunny lune afternoon when, at the close of school, we misgivingly carried home our little nonenveloped report cards, our freshman year was an unevent- ful one. Those of us who, as an advance guard, entered in February '34 ar- rived the first day in hip boots with packages of life savers in our pockets, for we had heard of the great flood which had just raged through the halls of Newtown. Although we found that the flood waters had receded, we were caught in a backwash of concerts and other sundry methods of raising money for the damaged library and musical instruments. Thus we, as typically gulli- ble Freshmen, bought not only the customary G.O. cards but also innumerable tags on "Tag Day." Undaunted by the jeers of both "sourcastic" Sophs and sophisticated Seniors, and depreciating the worth of such upperclassmen as Benedict Gropp, Robert Lax and Louis Iohnson and Charles Pruesh of blast- furnace fame whose names the rest of the school whispered in awed tones, we brazen Freshies were determined to let Newtown know we had arrived. ln the Freshman college, Annex 13, we proudly printed a newspaper called the "Review" just to show the "X-Ray" what publications should be like while the boys of Annex 12 not only published the "Gazette" but also proceeded to score all of Newtown's points and win the Freshman Novice Championship of the Queensboro Meet. The amazing agility of the members of the Annex 39 Stunt Club was presented in the play "Nevertheless" The Arista Society proved no more impressive than did our own Freshman assembly. In the middle of the term a great tornado swept down upon us and amid the wild scramble of our first G.O. election we innocents were promised everything from sky hooks to lollypops. We still fail to understand how Ioseph Montllor, Barbara Fielis, and Frank Wolf won when our all-important vote was cast for Alice Goon. When the main body of our class arrived in September '34, we were greeted with a two-page sample copy of the "X-Ray." CThis goes down in history as the first and only time a Freshie received something for nothing? The afore- mentioned paper spoke of lean Barse, one of our class, who was the sole female H481 Maggie" in Newtown. The outstanding social events of the term were the Masque and Bauble presentation, "The Romancersf' and the Annex l3 Christ- mas party. With Mr. Baker, then the principal of Freshman college, presiding, we gathered round the Christmas tree to carol to the notes of Howard Morgan's piano-accordion before retreating with candy and fruit to participate in section- room programs. The eighty-niners continued with their many parties and plays. Following the visit of students who represented twenty-six Italian universities, a delegation of ten mountaineer students from Caney Creek County initiated the spring '35 drive to help the Caney Creek pupils. Ierry Mahoney, Barbara Day and Iohn Cella were elected G.O. leaders. But by far the biggest event of the term was the retirement of Dr. I. D. Dillingham, principal of Newtown since it was chartered in l897. To us, he charged Newtown, its ideals, integrity and achievements. To us were directed his farewell words "Get Wisdom. Get Un- derstanding. Let her not go!" As his retirement terminated the first period of Newtown's growth, we had the singular experience of witnessing the chang- ing of eras. In the fall of '35 we, now full-fledged Sophomores, stopped chuckling at the Fanny Freshman "X-Ray" cartoons long enough to note with pride that Leon- ard Ingalls was already on the newspaper's staff. Although the midnight ses- sion somewhat curbed our yen for extracurricular activities in the main building, into which many of us had graduated, the eighty-nine French, Latin and Biology clubs continued their programs which included trips to the House of Magic and the Hayden Planetarium. One of our class set a precedent of winning a prize in the Chamber of Commerce Essay Contest, which was won the following year by Francis Koch, and in our Senior year by Iean Little. After some exciting electioneering, to which we were now accustomed, lack Mc- Dermott, David Tanzman and Helene Hero took the G.O. positions. The first plans for Newtown's athletic field were approved by the Board of Education. In the spring of '36 Mr. Alfred S. Roberts, newly appointed principal, assumed the duties which Miss Charlotte Eggleston had ably managed since the re- tirement of Dr. Dillingham. Greeting us with the advice "Let knowledge grow from day to day, but more of reverence in us grow" he immediately showed wholehearted interest in us and our school. His frequent appearances at our games and classes, his timely encouragement in our essay contests, all made us appreciate the great leader under whom our class was privileged to work. Following Masque and Bauble's "The Rivals," William Lord, Iames O'Brien, and Ieanne Brace won the G.O. elections. The Long Island Tercentenary was celebrated by an essay contest and several parades in which we participated. Surprised by a freshly painted school, we cheerfully CPD returned to Newtown in the fall of '36. Masque and Bauble presented "The Silver Lining" for our parents' approval during Open School Week. A good many of us went to see the President at the opening of the construction of the Queens-Manhattan Midtown Tunnel. It was this term that the creation of Queens College was pro- posed. Bobert Morrison and Mary Ellen Combes headed the Arista into which H491 some of us were inducted and Robert Morrison, Edward Amendola and Evelyn Parker were the new G.O. heads. Ianet Mueller and Wilbur Colbert, although defeated, were the first of our class to have the honor of running. ln Masque and Bauble's spring '37 play, "The Importance of Being Earnest," Wilbur Colbert and Christine Quinby proved their dramatic ability. Although he lost the "X-Ray"-sponsored mad race to Times Square, Iames O'Gorman was the first of our class to become an Arista officer. lames O'Brien and Rachel Williams were the Boy and Girl leaders. Louis Cohen and Leonard lngalls braved incredible heights to explore Newtown's deserted tower where they found plenty of dust if nothing more. Margot Kellermann won the first prize in a city-wide poster contest. By this time we were all acquainted with Mr. Henry Reinshagen, and the "Herald Tribune" Essay Contest. Encouraged by his in- defatigable interest our class, for several terms, contributed many points to NeWtown's high scores which surpassed by a great measure all others in Queens. Paced by the clever writing of Leonard lngalls and Lillian Lari, we earned over two hundred dollars in this competition. lames O'Gorman defeated George Elliot and Robert Dwyer vanquished Dick Pearson for the presidency and vice-presidency of the G.O. while Meg Muller was elected secretary. "El Faro" Won a first place, the "X-Ray" a second, and the "Scribe," edited by lean Young, a third, in the annual Columbia Scholastic Press Association com- petition. This term Was also marked by the completion of our Athletic Field and Queens' College and by the safe arrival of 200 chickens for the Agriculture Course. When the first half of our Senior year, the fall of '37, rolled around, we were pleased to find that five of our class, including Ianet Mueller, Girl leader, Rich- ard Pearson, Boy leader, Charles Schumacher and Leonard Klotz now headed the "Aristocracy." Richard Pearson and Charles Gibbons represented us in the G.O. while Betty Gibbons was the new secretary. lanet Galbraith, lohn Charlton, George Elliot and Dave Dillon had the satisfaction of being candi- dates. On the "X-Ray's" tenth birthday, Christine Quinby and Desmond Fair- bairn were editors under Editor in Chief Leonard lngalls, While many more of us were ordinary fourth estaters. Masque and Bauble produced Hluliet and Romeo," "The Bishop's Candlesticks," and collaborated with the lunior Dra- matic Club in the "Dyspeptic Ogre." ln a state of trepidation, We entered the second half of our Senior year, eco- nomics and yearbook pictures lay ahead. Economics proved to have its merits but the proofs . . . ! The best, by unanimous choice, was always that fifth one. This term all seven Arista leaders, including Lillian Lari, Girl leader, Iames O'Gorman, Boy leader, George Elliot, Halina Chomowicz, Irving Klotz, and Iean Squitteri, were our classmates. Although none of us was eligible to run in the G.O. elections, Thomas Dent, lerry Freirich, Bart Green and Dick Thews proved their political skill as party managers. The "Scribe" took a second place, the "X-Ray" a first and "El Faro," a medalist rating in the Columbia contest. "Dulcy" was the last Masque and Bauble play we were to see while H501 an interview with Gertrude Lawrence terminated the interesting list of "X-Ray" interviews that included Helen Hayes, Noel Coward, Dorothy Thompson, George Raft and Leslie Howard. The rest of the term was well occupied with our participation in the ever-increasing extracurricular activities and our preparation for such trifles as scholastic aptitudes, the prom, and the fatal Regents. Graduation night came all too quickly. We bid farewell to our Alma Mater and, regretfully but well-prepared, we turn to face the future. Arlene Morton I l5l I CLASS PRCPHECY january 20, 1956 Ladies and Gentlemen: l This is Station NHS broadcasting from the radio balcony of the Red and Black Room of the Pioneer Hotel in Washington, D. C. From the glass walls of this room we have an excellent view of the ballroom floor, where the greatest lnaugural Ball in the history of the United States is under way. There are already some 6,000 notables gathered here, all awaiting the arrival of our new President, james C'Gorman, "The People's Choice." As we wait for the coming of the beloved I. O'G., we will endeavor to give the radio audience as clear a description as possible of What is going on, so you may have an idea of how splendid an affair this is. Right now the crowd is enthusiastically applauding Betty Gahagan, that at- tractive harpist, who has just finished playing Francis Koch's "Ode to Gersh- win." The composer himself, sitting inconspicuously in a corner, has taken time to look up from a copy of Virgil-or maybe it's Homer-to nod his head in approval. Richard Pearson, prominent young Wall Street executive, has just entered the ballroom accompanied by that Gotham socialite, janet Mueller. With them have also arrived the vivacious Christine Quinby, who recently donated Quinby Hall to West Point, and Senator Peter Fulvio, who helped defeat the Women's Equal Rights Bill in Congress last session. The athletic world is well represented here tonight. We can see the trim- looking track star, Bob Dwyer, on our right, with jerry Frierich, noted fight pro- moter. A little to our left is Arlene Morton, owner of the New York Yankees, speaking excitedly to the cool, trim Marjorie Rosser, founder of the Ranger Home for Retired Hockey Players. A slim blonde has just rushed up to Miss Morton and the two embrace each other affectionately. Why, it's Halina Cho- mowicz, head of Chez Chom, Frat Pins and owner of the world's largest collec- tion of fraternity pins. The medical world is not without its representatives either. Dr. William Kurfist, eminent psychologist, is jumping energetically before Americas most brilliant woman surgeon, Mary Fallon. But from here, ladies and gentlemen, we can't figure out whether he's demonstrating the nervous action of the knee muscles or that ancient dance craze, the "Big Apple." George Elliot, standing close by, is apparently enjoying the exhibition. Mr. Elliot, by the Way, is the noted health promoter and manager of the nation-wide system of boys' camps known as "Ye Young Acorne Farmesf' Charles Gibbons and Fred Kittel, world-famous artists, have just entered our radio room, armed with easel and painting equipment. They are here tonight to sketch their impression of the Ball. Frank Beza, radio comedian, after-dinner sleeper and author of "Fourth Dimen- sional Humor," is the center of a laughing crowd which includes Margaret H521 Eallier, star fillibusterer from Alabama, Iohn Valantiejas of Valantiejas Under- takers Ltd., Robert Goldstein, snake charmer, and Carlton Prunhuber, blotter manufacturer, better known as the Most Photographed Boy in the World. Wil- bur Colbert and Rosemary Hodgdon, the stage's most beloved couple, now starring in "Hoboken" at the Masque Theater, have just joined the throng. 'We can see the bright red head of lohn Charlton whose new wave theory in radio has upset the scientific world. He is speaking to architect Edward Haag, who drew the plans for this hotel, and john Kozikowski who had charge of the construction. Evelyn Hulton, chief executive of the Betty Martin Dress Shops, and her charming buyer, Florence Malone, are chatting in a corner with fash- ion authority Margot Kellermann. Near by we see Iohn Wainwright, that able New York banker. ' Ladies and Gentlemen, we have just spotted john Kelly, mental wizard and philosopher, standing retiringly in a corner. Some members of President O'Gorman's Cabinet have just entered. We can see Charles Schumacher, Sec- retary of State, Thomas Dent, Secretary of the Treasury, Anneli Cahn, Secre- tary of Labor, Suran Ohnigian, Secretary of Agriculture. The latter is carrying a crate of the President's favorite apples which will be presented to him to- night. Leonard H. Ingalls, prominent newspaper publisher who supported O'Gorman in his presidential campaign, has just rushed in and signaled to the band that the President has arrived. The house lights are lowered and the President is spotlighted. The band blares forth with Howard Morgan's latest song. The crowd bursts into cheers and ap- plause as the smiling President O'Gorman walks in with his charming First Lady on his arm. There is a slight commotion as Desmond Fairbairn, owner of the Eighth Avenue Subway, dashes in, late as usual. But it is only a momentary interruption. The ovation becomes deafening when the President takes his place under the American flag. Suddenly seven cheers rip the air and one seems to hear an undertone echoing: N-E-W-T-O-W-N Lillian Lari l153l Wl-lO'S WI-IO? l.

There are very few persons who cannot, upon mention of a certain day, form a mental picture of it. Unlike the months, which acquire their per- sonality almost entirely from the climate, the days of the week owe their indi- viduality to certain unchanging customs of the human race. Perhaps the best example of this is Sunday which is almost universally a re- ligious day and a day of relaxation. It is then that we build up a mental and physical reserve for the trials that Monday and its successors will bring. This function of Sunday is used as justification for poor church attendance by some of our "tired businessmen" who invariably state that "somebody has to earn the bread for this house." Although, strictly speaking, Sunday is the first day of the week, it is common to think of Monday as filling this position because all work begins then. ln a certain sense, Monday is the true harbinger of a week of toil and trouble, a title which Sunday, because of its detached character and more sanguine con- notation, should not possess. As if to add to the gloom that already pervades it, Monday is also known as "wash day," and, besides this, all the accumulated tasks left over from the previous week are to be done. Tuesdays sole claim to distinction lies in the fact that it is the only day that has characteristics which make it stand out. lt is the dullard of the days of the Week. ln large families it is "ironing day," but smaller families, which are de- cidedly in the majority, are quite capable of doing their ironing on Monday along with the wash. Probably the most depressing day of all is Wednesday. The impetus received from a week-end's exhilaration may be sufficient to carry us over Monday and Tuesday, but on Wednesday our morale reaches its nadir for the week. We cannot see forward far enough or backward far enough to find any motive Ci.e., a Week endj for continuing our existence. lt is not strange, therefore, that Wednesday has the highest suicide rate of any day in the week. Another reason for Wednesday's remarkable resemblance to Bunyan's "Slough of Despond" may be found in its proximity to Thursday. Thursday is the maid's day off, the day when milady condescends to take herself to the kitchen and to make the beds, while the rest of the family anxiously contemplate an in- credible dinner and a sleepless night. Why the domestics of the world selected Thursday for their conge is not known. At any rate their choice has forced them, in the more indolent households, to do Thursday's work on Wednesday and to repair the damage on Friday. lt has also prevented Thursday from be- ing as inconspicuous as Tuesday. just as Wednesday is downcast because it is near Thursday, so Friday is jubi- lant because it is the precursor of Saturday. On Friday, we have a week of tribulation almost completely behind us and our good friends, Saturday and ll57l Sunday, are ready to permit us to partake of the pleasures they have to offer. Certain other people regard Friday with glee for more mercenary reasons. The owner of the fish market is prominent in this group. Saturday is the pragmatist's day. lt is the day on which he expects to see the satisfaction of the many desires he has accumulated throughout the Week. The pragrnatist probably will, but the great majority of us will not. We may derive a great deal of gratification from seeing or even playing a ball game or other- wise amusing ourselves on Saturday, but the greatest joys are the anticipation of Saturday's pleasures. We anticipate on Friday and reflect on Sunday. We should, after a little thought, agree that these days are really more joyous. Saturday brings the realization of good things but We appreciate it most on the days that immediately precede and follow it. Occasionally a day will lose its personality before extremes of climate. The rainy Saturday that is invariably preceded by a sunny Monday-through-l:'ri- day is a good example. But meteorological changes cannot brighten or sully a day's reputation. Only a change in our very securely established cus- toms Will accomplish this and it is doubtful that we shall ever associate the days of the Week With different things from those We do now. john Kelly KEY l.
