Dear Boys and Girls: It is with deep gratification that I learn you have selected "American Ideals" for the central theme of your Year Book. With the fundamental princi- ples of our government-the idea of equality, the sacredness of humanity, the faith in the good sense and virtue of our common people-I am sure you are so deeply imbued that these concepts are a part ot your spiritual lite. Knowing the ritual, however, does not always foster piety. I would have you regard American Democracy as a way of lite. You are to tread a path of duty: for possession of privilege compels service. You are to be kindly considerate of others. You are to be painstaking, discriminating, generous, hospitable, honest in treating and trading with your fellows. On your Commencement Day it is meet I remind you that you are in mind and muscle, soul and sense, the embodiment of the central institution of America-the Public School. The school that extends its arms in welcome to all, without distinction of credit and creed. As graduates of Newtown your school and your country give you a mission. Be true!

We have set ourselves down as we are, now, at the time of our leaving Newtown. It is all too possible that in the years to come we will look over this portrayal of ourselves as we were in Newtown and be amused or even inclined to look at our former selves with cynicism. There is only one thing we wish to say here. That is, that we appear here in our true colors. The picture has not been retouched. And because we are portrayed here naturally instead of artihcially, we ask ourselves of the future to look with understanding and friendliness at the p0l'fl'Llylll. We ask our future selves to avoid the amused look and the tolerant smile of the grown-up looking back at this younger day. They say that there will be a day when we will look back at these years of our youth with longing fondness. But there will be, we fear, an interval between the youth and that advanced stage when we will consider the accomplishments and even the ideals of our youth to be trivial and insignificant. Perhaps, compared to the doings of a later day, our present actions are trivial. But the fact remains that we are acting with sincerity. To us, now, these ideals and achievements are all importantg just as important to us as anything that we will do in the future. XVe hope that this does not seem like a foolishly sentimental appeal for an unimportant end. Wfe firmly desire that this yearbook, the effort of our youth, will serve as a record of fond memories and not one of memories which provoke amusement. XX'e want this yearbook to be the connecting chain with our youth when we have outgrown that youth. XVe want to remind ourselves in the future that even when we were not full of the wisdom of age we had ideals and purposes. XVe think that this quotation sums up everything we wish to say: "Hold fast to the spirit of youth, let years to come bring what they may."

HEYDEN NEWTQWN CTIV EXTRA-CURRICULAR activities represent to sen- iors the social element in school existence. This function, though, is merely one of the valuable deriva- tions from club membership. These organizations pro- l vide means for a student to utilize and fully appreciate li his present knowledge, to widen his scope of learning ,l and to acquire self-expression. It might be truly said that such student activities are the "spice of school l life."

In order to carry out these varied aims, a complex and intelligent organization is re- quired. The Newtown High School Band appears regularly at assemblies, games and usually participates in parades. George H. Schoettle is the conductor of the Band, the band manager is Arthur Peuplie, the secretary is George Fuchs, the librarians are Bernard Greenblatt and Harold Gr quartermasters are Peter De Nunzio and Edwin Richter. -g7.- l s eenblatt, .and the ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' ABCANDXYZ Q l 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. The clubs, both honor organiza- tions, hold discussions on mathematics and study mathe- matical problems. They also delve into seemingly unmathe- matical subjects and emerge turning about with a new set of relationships. XYZ, the girls' division, usually gives a spring picnic along with its other activities. Florence Rau and Marjorie Luke are president and vice-president respectively. Helen Vandervoort is corresponding secretary, and Doris Anderson is recording sec- retary. Ethel Weiss is treasurer and Miss Rosemary Tighe is faculty adviser. Lawrence O'Neill is the president of ABC, the boys' division, and John Young is vice-president. Harry Knezevitch is secretary, John Geraghty is treasurer and Mr. john Traynor is the faculty adviser. -gg- ' JUNE I939 NEWTOWN ' ADVISERS' AIDES THERE are one hundred and Hfty girls in the school who have report cards on their minds a Whole week before the rest of the school starts to worry about this periodic report on their failures. They are the Advisers' Aides. These girls help the grade advisers with their clerical work. They transcribe the marks from the report cards to the grade advisers' cards. Each girl must Work three periods. At the end of the term the girls assist the program committee. Each girl works for a grade adviser for three days. For their serv- ices the girls receive service pins from the General Organiza- l tion. This term the initiation committee provided a hectic but amusing in-coming for the new members. This built up a Hne esprit de corps. Regina Bannon is president, Jeanne Commeau is vice-president, Phyllis Eich is secretary and Grace Grimsley is treasurer. Mr. Walter Porter is faculty adviser. -gg.. ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' AERONAUTICS CLUB THE Newtown Aero Club was formed March 7, 1939, to promote interest in aviation among air-minded students, both boys and girls. The activities thus far have included discussions of model making, including a description of a radio-controlled gas model by its builder, Ray Treleaven. Mr. Charles C. Greene, the club's sponsor, told some flying stories, parts of which were true, and gave a talk on the construction and equipment of the Yankee Clipper, e A illustrating the talk with film slides. Future plans include the holding of model contests among Newtown students and participation in outside contests. The club meets every Tuesday and it is intended to have alternate Tues- days devoted to model matters and to less technical matters of more general interest. Movies will probably be obtained from the Army Air Corps and it is intended that outside speakers will be secured to address the club. The president is Henry Immersberger, the vice-president, Andrew Mc- Innes, secretary, Lois Smith, and treasurer, Edward Kuroly. ..9, ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' ASSEMBLY BOOK SQUAD WITHOUT music, our assemblies would lack the en- l thusiasm and good cheer which always characterizes them. Dillingham Hall is very large and to supply everyone in the hall with a music book is truly a problem. The Assem- bly Book Squad endeavors to accomplish this With speed and unobstrusiveness. The squad is most exclusive. Since it is a service club of the utmost importance, the members, which may only be boys, are not chosen in tryouts or competitions, but are asked to join and few refuse this invitation. The Book Squad,s duties consist solely of the care and distribution of the books. The squad must provide every person in the assembly hall with one book and at che end of the assembly period must collect them. The squad is present at every assembly during the term. The captain is James Kennedy, first lieutenant, Fritz Hirschland, second lieutenant, John Geraghty. Miss Charlotte Eggleston is the faculty adviser. 19- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' BOYS' BIOLOGY CLUB 8: GIRLS' BIOLOGY CLUB AT ONE time the boys' and girls, Biology clubs were one club. But due to a difference in opinion, the members divided into two organizations. The aim of both clubs is to foster an interest in the biological sciences among the students of Newtown. During Open School Week of every fall term the boys and girls erect an exhibit in the lower foyer which attracts a great deal of attention both from parents and students. For the past two years a representative from these clubs has been sent to the Museum to deliver a talk there. Many exhibits are placed in the contest sponsored by the Children's Science Fair. The president of the Boys' Biology Club is Nicholas Nickou, the vice- president is Edward Ryan. Eugene Schaller takes care of all the secretarial duties. The faculty adviser is Mr. L. M. Fiedler. Esta Greenberg and Laura Goldberg are president and vice-president re- spectively of the Girls, Biology Club. The corresponding secretary is Molly Ruffman and the recording secretary is Marie Messeni. Jeanne Coleman is the treasurer and Miss Carrie E. Day is faculty adviser. -9- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' BIBLIOPHILES THE cure-all for dull meetings has finally been found by y the Bibliophiles. These Newtownites who check the books and give out the library passes, assign each period squad to i entertain at one meeting a term. This scheme gives each group a chance to display its skills and to give to the rest of the club a most amusing period which just about satisfies everybody. An added stimulus is given to each squad to im- prove on the other's work, as a prize is given to the best group at the end of the term. The club, organized primarily for the care of the books 7 W and the running of the library, also carries on regularly vari- ous other activities such as dances, theatre parties, and even hikes. Every department of the school owes a debt to this club for its eiiiciency in helping students use the library to the best advantage. The president is John Reich- steiner, While Eugene Shaller is vice-president, Grace Bochman, secretary, and Marlotte Hoffmeister the treasurer. Their adviser is Mrs. Florence Allan. -93- ' JU NE 1939 NEWTOWN ' after a very short CAMERA CLUB THE Camera Club is one of the most popular clubs in Newtown. The purpose of the club is not only to develop an interest in photography, but to foster and encourage an even greater interest and skill in those who have taken pic- tures. For the latter it is "better photography." After a short time in the club, members are able to take pictures one day, and develop and have prints ready the following day. The members are able to give talks on enlarging, tinting and action pictures from which the rest of the group are able to profit and improve their skill and technique. The club spon- sors a contest. The club program is such a practical one that time the members are able to do really fine work developing and printing pictures. It is hoped that this activity will lead to an enriched life. The officers arc: Norman Simms Albert Neubert Mabel Kirch Regina Flaherty Mr. Richard Kinney President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Adviser -941 ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' CHEER LEADERS HAVE you ever been at one of Newtown's athletic con- l tests and heard an expectant murmur announce a group of white-clad girls? Then you know these gay, merry maidens whose entrance brings pep and energy back to the court where performers and audience both are fatigued from the preceding quarter of play. They run to their positions at the corners and sides of the court and encourage the rooting Newtownites to cheer literally "until the rafters ringi' and the players are "rarin' to go." Each term, girls from the fourth and fifth terms try out for the positions left vacant by the graduation of some of these cheerleaders. The tryout is really a test of personality, but not necessarily popularity. The girls are chosen for height, personality, and general appearance. Captain of the team is Madeline Szalay, co-captain is Dorothy Jones, treasurer is Lorraine Clarke. Miss Catherine Cluney is faculty adviser. -95- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' CHEMISTRY CLUB THE Chemistry Club was organized to give additional . opportunity for students to further their interests in Chemistry. Each new member is given a chance to perform an experiment arranged and conducted solely by himself. During the past years the club has captured many prizes at the Children's Science Fair and has made a good deal of fine exhibits. Their favorite model is a working blast furnace. Any student who enters his exhibit in the Children's Science Fair has his materials paid for by the school and if he wins a prize receives an "NU at the Chemistry assembly. The club is the leading science club of Newtown in regard to winning prizes. Every member belongs to the American Institute of Science and Engineering and many are taking outside courses in aeronautics, engineer- ing and mineralogy. The presiding officer is Francis Brandt, the vice-president is Conrad Herr- mann, while the secretary and treasurer are William Denhart and John Camp- bell respectively. Mrs. Ruth Arnold is the faculty adviser. .-95.. 0 JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' CHESS CLUB THERE is one club at Newtown which is an exclusively male venture even though its constitution doesn't pro- vide for this restriction. At one time some of the opposite sex attempted to crash the gate, but the resistance was so strong that the Chess Club is still a bachelor establishment where men of Newtown may gather to discuss the merits and play the ancient game of kings. The more able players of the club form a Hve-man chess team which plays in an interscholastic league for the Queens Championship. Our team has had remarkable success in this tourney. This success is due to the excellent material to be found at Newtown and also to the stiff competition candidates must contend with in order to make the team. Mr. Raymond S. Dunphy is the faculty adviser, Dr. Arthur A. Bryant, chairman of the Latin Department, is an honorary member. The president is Fred Conrad, the vice-president Warren Dalton, and the secretary Harold Bermel. ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' t,.x.-',g,, COMMERCIAL CLUB THE cream of the crop of the Commercial Department is found in this group. Members are chosen on the basis of scholarship and personality. The club attempts to gather as many outstanding students as possible in order to make high school life more interesting and pleasant for the club mem- bers. The purpose of the Commercial Club is most unusual and so worthwhile that it bears repetition. Their primary motive is to provide for select students of the Commercial Department an organization which shall endeavor to promote scholarship, to increase social feeling and to instill a deeper interest in the various subjects of that department. It tries to get together these boys and girls with a common interest and give them a good time and a worthwhile program at the monthly meetings. The officers are: Walter Barlund President Eileen Whiteacre Vice-President Helen Breezka Secretary Walter Regan Treasurer Miss Elizabeth Reinshagen Adviser ..9g-. -1..,.,,,. ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' THE CO-OPERATIVE CLUB THE Co-operative Club is a newly organized club which consists of only co-operative course students. Those who take the co-operative course are students who wish experi- ence in business training or who wish to help in supporting their families. Many of these students have service jobs about New- town which consist of telephoning, filing, stock work, mimeo- graphing and typing. A great many are employed by R. H. Macy and Company, Western Union, and Lord and Taylor as stock workers, junior clerical workers, or messenger Workers. The Co-operative Club has given its first dance and much to everyone,s satisfaction it was a huge success. . We all hope they will continue their successful policies. Ruth Benson is their president and Philip Warren is vice-president. The secretary is Bertha Green. Miss Rosemary Fleming is their faculty adviser. J -,9- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' THE CO-OPERATIVE COURSE A WEEK THE Co-operative Course offers students an education plus business experi- ence. The course is appreciated by girls and boys who wish to learn all they can about the business world by actually being a part of it. It is also helpful to those students who find it necessary to pay school expenses or to assist their families. There are two kinds of positions, service and paid. Pupils on service jobs work in the various offices of Newtown High School or in the offices of grammar schools throughout the Borough. These students do many types of work such as filing, typing, telephoning, mimeographing, messenger and stock work. -loo- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' B WEEK On paid jobs they do messenger work, merchandise checking, marking, stock work, wrapping and junior clerical work. These pupils are employed by such reliable firms as R. H. Macy 85 Co., Lord and Taylor, Best 81 Company and Western Union. In order to graduate, a student must possess a satisfactory job rating as Well as a good school record. The Co-operative Course does not insure youngsters a rapid road to business, but it does give them an excellent training based upon actual business experience. 110.- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' DANCING CLUB NTHOUGH this is but the third term of the existence of the Dancing Club, it is considered one of the most popular clubs in Newtown. The Boy Leader, Enrico Lucchese, the Girl Leader, Muriel Fitzgerald, and the secretary and treasurer, Adele Shefferman and Herbert Boehme respectively, together with the aid of Miss Catherine Cluny, their faculty adviser, en- deavor to teach seniors how to dance in a most informal manner. A circle of partners is formed around Miss Cluney who demonstrates those steps which are to be learned. A pianist is present at all meetings and the type of music varies with the type of dancing which is being taught. During the term one or perhaps two lessons are given by students who are proficient in their own type of dancing. All in all the club is most enjoyable and serves its purpose thoroughly, that of assuring a larger turnout at the Senior Prom at the end of each term. 1 02, ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN 4 DO RE MI CLUB THE purpose of the Do Re Mi Club is to further an interest in music among Newtown High School students. The entire club consists of the honor students of the school who are taking a music course. Each member is proficient in his own Held. Some hope to be great singers, others desire to compose good music, while still others dream of playing at their own concerts. The club meetings are held in an informal manner. Sing- ing takes up a good part of the meeting. Many discussions take place about the merits of the various singing and choral groups performing throughout the country. The faculty adviser is the much talented Mr. C. Irving Valentine The president is Mary Nepp and the vice-president is Laura Goldberg Julian Alex ander and Laura Goldberg are secretary and treasurer respectively -103- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' ECONOMICS CLUB THE Economics Club was organized at Newtown High School in November 1938 to give students an understand- ing of modern economic life. To accomplish this purpose the club does not engage in coaching, but rather devotes its time to debates, newspaper analyses, writes essays on topics of economic significance, invites speakers and in general dis- cusses topics of current economic importance. To help stu- dents in their study of economics the club has created a newspaper clipping service. A fascinatingly brilliant talk on "Consumers Educa- tion" was delivered by Mr. Edward Reich of the Merchandis- ing Department. The club has written essays in a contest sponsored by the Brooklyn Academy of Arts and Sciences. Essays on housing, taxation, public opinion, etc., have been submitted by this club. One of its members has thus far been awarded thirty dollars for her essay on housing. The club feels that Miss Helen von Maerklin has an excellent chance of winning the grand prize of one hundred dollars. Mr. Nathan Plotkin is faculty adviser, Eileen Whiteacre is president, Martin Duddy is vice-president, Alicia Gibbs is secretary, Johanna Schuster is corre- sponding secretary and Walter Barlund is treasurer. 1 41 ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' ENGLISH HERALDS THE purpose of the English Heralds is to read new books l and to report on them in order to make it easy for the students to choose their books for pleasure and reports. In order to join the club a student must have at least 85 per cent as an English mark, a recommendation from his previous English teacher and a book report approved by the membership committee. Each member of the club is expected to submit at least two reports a month to the bulletin. At least one play is seen by the club every term and the meetings are spent in active discussion on books which have just been put upon the market. Miss Hays, the faculty adviser, adds a great deal of charm to the meetings because of her wide knowledge of books and her travelling experiences. The presiding officer is Charles Aderholdt and the vice-president is Ethel Schreiner. The secretary is Elsie Rasmussen, while the treasurer is Beula Rosen. -I05... ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' FASHION CLUB 1 THIS organization is probably the most realistic and prac- tical club in the school. Its aims are directed toward giving concrete assistance to girls who intend to make some phase of the business of fashion and design their Work in life. To carry out this aim, the club has practical sketching from models for improvement in fashion illustration Work. Students act as models. The club also runs fashion shows which serve as special training for systematic recording of outstanding style features. Miss Elna L. Henry, the club's faculty adviser, arranges for supervised visits to fashion pub- lication concerns, dress manufacturers and department stores for the purpose of studying business procedure and use of fashion illustration work in these fields. The president is Gloria Hodnett, the vice-president is Alfred Appruzzese and the secretary is Evelyn Kaufman. 1 -xo6- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN THE FINE ARTS CLUB THESE are the select of the art course. They are the art editors of Newtown's publications. They are the victors in the poster contests both in school and out. The members of Fine Arts also are scholarship winners and take many of the awards open to their department. The club is here to help the students to further their own talents and to assist them in the accomplishment of more and better creative work. The members are shown art techniques not included in the regular syllabus and young artists may use the meetings for work on their own projects and ideas in an atmosphere conducive to the bettering of their work. These advantages more than ever help make these the choicest of Newtown,s art experts and increase still further the demand for thse students to lead the art work of the school. When a newspaper or magazine needs an Art Editor it just calls on the Fine Arts Club to supply him. The president is Edward Troy with Richard Kissel as the vice-president. Miranda Luber is secretary and the faculty adviser is Miss Clemence Sordillo. -107- JUNE l939 NEWTOWN ' GENERAL ORGANIZATION A-:TER the ballots are counted and the new ofhcers are installed the G.O. goes back to taking care of the extra- curricular activities, selling the students what-nots and form- ing a new social center. Yes, the General Organization is of tremendous importance. It trains the students to understand and benefit from a democratic system of government. Its campaigns aren't only a marvelous chance for the school poli- ticians to develop a sure-fire technique in public speaking, they are, in reality, miniature elections imitative of our i national elections. Just going to school may be a bore to some, but if there are outside interests to intrigue the students' fancy, the time can be passed with a great deal of fun and a greater willingness for work. The G.O. with its many clubs provides these outside interests. John Geraghty is president, Walter Hajek is vice-president and Muriel Fitzgerald is secretary. Mr. Hugo J. Schultz is faculty adviser. l --m8- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' GARRETSON SCRIBES THE Garretson Scribes, so named in honor of Garret J. Garretson, has as its aim "to encourage and improve stu- dent work in literary Heldsf' They strive towards this objec- tive by sponsoring a short story contest and by actively supporting such endeavors as the Annual Poetry Contest and the Scribe, the literary magazine of Newtown. They meet each week in the Garretson Library to discuss literary topics and learn of poets, essayists, playwrights, and novelists of renown. Each member of the Scribe may also submit manuscripts to the club for criticisms which he usually receives in abundance. This gives many of these would-be authors the opportunity of exchanging ideas and of learning their own literary weaknesses. Occasionally the Scribes invite speakers such as Mrs. Garretson or some well-known literary light to visit their meetings. These special meetings are often most entertaining and educational. Ralph Dykes is president, Tilly Altman is vice-president, the recording and corresponding secretariees are Stanley Hurd and Lillian Moskowitz re- spectively, the treasurer is James Lione and the faculty adviser is Miss Frances Butterfield. -109- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' l1AQ.h fl GERMAN HONOR SOCIETY THE ofHcers of the German Honor Society are Marilyn Eimer president and Marlies Stern, vice-president. The secretary is Arthur Magri, while Ethel Weiss collects all vol- untary contributions. The purpose of this honor society is to bring about a deeper appreciation of German culture in all its phases: music, art, science, and folk-lore by means of student activity in an informal, social atmosphere. Every term the students of German who receive the highest marks are rewarded with pens donated by the Ger- man Honor Society. Two of the most important activities of the society are the holding of a dance in the girls' gym and the publishing and selling of their German magazine Plaudcrcr. The faculty adviser is Mrs. Judith Brodkin. The editor of Plauderer is Ellen Friedsam. ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' GRAPHIC ARTS CLUB THIS club aims to improve the Graphic Arts. The club has access to a printing press and conducts experiments in these arts. They study make-up of different pages and try '. to use forms of type which will be pleasant and yet striking. i 3. The boys are engaged in the theory and practice of clear, neat - 1 , make-up. l The study of printing is truly an art. There are good llmjlggi printers, of course, but the printer who can achieve an artistic ' 1 D touch is rare. The life and quality of many a magazine de- W may M pends upon the format and the arrangements. The boys have '- printing charts and discuss the values and special qualities of each kind of type. The club makes a "dummy" of a page and lists the type required. The page is then set up and a few sheets run off. The club then dis- cusses the good and poor qualities of the finished product. The president is Dominic Franceshina, the vice-president Ralph Schulz and the faculty adviser is Mr. Eugene Holzer. '-'IIIT ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' R - ' K- 3 f f si. 5 . . A I SEB'-ii?" ' GYM CAPTAINS CLUB ANOTHER new club added this term is the Gym Cap- tains Club. They have a threefold purpose. They try first to provide opportunities for the boy who is particularly able on the apparatus to have practice and to gain experi- ence in gym activities. He is given every chance to improve and may show real talent after working in the club a few times. The Gym Captains Club next trains its members in leadership. It gives the boys instruction and experience so that they may be a real help and assist efficiently during the gym periods. This is not only a help to the Physical Training teachers and to the boys on the floor but it is of immeasurable assistance to the boy in later life. The final reason for the organization of this group and in many ways the most important is to bring the different gymnasts of the school together so that they may help each other and as a team put on exhibitions and demonstrations for the benefit of the school. Thus this club serves in a threefold capacity. The president is Arthur Herrforth with Charles Chinn as secretary and treasurer. Mr. joseph Borow is the faculty adviser. . Only those girls who have received 85 per cent or more ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN x ,g .. Y HEARTHSTONE CLUB OYCE GRIGNON, presidentg Adele Shefferman, vice- presidentg Stella Givozdziowski, secretary, and Helen Lewis, treasurer, are the officers of the Hearthstone Club which was organized to promote an interest both educational and social in our everyday life. A good many of the term's meetings are spent in dis- cussing dietetics, menu planning and table serving problems. Their meetings are educational but also amusing. in the Regents exam in Foods are eligible for membership. l Each term a luncheon is planned, carried out and super- vised by the members of the club. In the fall term, on the last day of Open School Week, the Hearthstone gives a tea for all parents and teachers, super- vised by their faculty adviser, Miss Oroli Perry. hin- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' HOME NURSING MOST girls do not hear of this club until they have had Home Nursing and so it is often in the nature of a most pleasing surprise that they discover there is a club will- ing to help them learn about nursing and general hospital work. The club concerns itself with stimulating an interest in nursing. The term unursingi' is a general one and includes all fields of hospital work open to women. The club holds discussions on hospital work. Quite often it has nurses and doctors as speakers. This term the club went on an inspection tour of St. Luke's Hospital. It was of great interest and practical value to the girls. The president is Helen Dispenziere, the vice-president is Muriel Willing, the corresponding secretary is Dorothea Muller, the recording secretary is Vivian Larson and the treasurer is Jeanne Shelley. Miss Irene Bishop and Miss Claire Casey are faculty advisers. ... 4, ' JUNE I939 NEWTOWN ' ITALIAN HONOR SOCIETY THE officers of the Italian Honor Society are as follows: or a 133211, presidentg Betty Caselli, vice-presidentg 5 3OSCPE1I1C-?I'3II1l'l1, recording secretary, and Marie Messeni, treasurer. The purpose of the club is to promote an interest in Italian and to provide social activities for its members. Each term the activities of the club have been divided into three definite groups. First of all, they publish their semi-annual Italian paper Il Circolo which is paid for by subscriptions of students. Secondly, it holds a dance which is usually a success l because of the co-operation of its members and the careful planning which is done. Thirdly, it provides social interest by securing opera tickets, giving teas and supplying tickets for interesting entertainments. Mr. Nazzareno Palleri, faculty adviser, corresponds with the Italian Club Council. -IIs, JUNE I939 NEWTOWN ' JUNIOR DRAMATIC CLUB THE purpose of the Junior Dramatic Club is to enable the freshmen and the sophomores to obtain a greater appre- ciation and understanding of drama in all its phases by actual practice. The club is also interested in presenting radio plays and last term experimented with many of these plays. All students who have acting ability and are not eligible for the senior dramatic society are given a chance to strengthen this ability. When they finally become eligible for membership in "Masque and Bauble' they are usually ac- cepted just on the experience they have received in this Junior Dramatic Club. Every term they enact a play which may be seen free of charge. Ira Cirker is president, while Miss Mary McNally is their talented faculty -116- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' , K x , E LE CERCLE FRANCAIS HOW would you like to play Bingo in French? That's what Le Cercle Francais did. Besides fostering an interest in French culture this club seems to get many other things done. Not long ago the club went to see the Normandie. On Armistice Day, the club Went on a picnic. Erika Ditzel is president, Ralph Dykes is vice-president, Toni Paris is secretary and Roger Dykes is treasurer. Mr. Frank Bartlett who was faculty adviser of the club for the past few terms is not with it this term. The club 4 wishes to thank him for his support and interest in its activi- c ties. Miss Annabella Burzinsky, a new and most charming member of the French department, has become faculty adviser of the club. It is to be wondered if the sudden influx of boys into the club has anything to do with Miss Burzinsky. 1117- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' LE FLAMBEAU STAFF l "LE FLAMBEAUQ' the semi-annual publication of the French Department, is written, edited, and printed by students in the French course. It is published in newspaper form and sold by subscription for ten cents. It contains anecdotes, short histories, original stories, cartoons, jokes, pictures and a very important feature, French classical poems translated by the students into English poetry. It has a puzzle page, a page of original poetry, an article on the French ex- hibition at the World's Fair, and a lower-termers' page which often proves to be quite exceptional. Last term the paper devoted its space to Louis XIV in celebration of his tricentennial. The staff consists of Francis Brandt, editor-in-chief, Floyd Hasselriis, print- ing editor, Sol Weinstock, business manager, Julian Alexander, art editor, Erika Ditzel, Peggy Paris, Betty Caselli, Jeanne Coleman, Marjorie Luke and Agnes Boyajian, associate editors. Mrs. Ida Dangel is faculty adviser. -118-- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' MAJOR "N" CLUB THIS club was founded to bring together the outstanding athletes of the school. Any boy who has made his eight- inch "NH is eligible for the club, but before he is accepted, the members vote on the candidate. Its purpose are three- fold: To provide social Contact among all the various athletes of the school. To promote good sportsmanship. To give assistance in the running of athletic events at Newtown throughout the year. . All the members of the club are the school's athletic greats. These are: Danny Mindheim and Edward Leonard, track stars, Jimmy Kennedy, captain of the swimming teamg Joe Gorman and Arty Cohen, captain and star of the tennis team. Lawrence McWilliams president, john Horvath vice-president, Frank Sgarro is both secretary aand treasurer. Mr. Ira Ter- williger is faculty adviser. These boys act as volunteer ushers at all games at Newtown. They help sell tickets, distribute mimeographed cheers and in general preserve order at the games. ....u9.. ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' MANDOLIN AND GUITAR CLUB YOU may have heard a musical jingle during a late lunch period in the corner of the boys' section in the lunch- room. Your curiosity may have been aroused by the unusual inertia of the Service Squad. Where was the "stop all that noise"? But there was a reason for the sudden and unex- pected goodness of heart of the squad. Mrs. Anne Maxwell's Mandolin and Guitar Club was tuning up for their club meeting. The club was founded to enable students interested in the guitar or mandolin to acquire artistic expression in these fields and learn to play these instruments in ensemble. The club is especially interested in learning to play and understand classical com- positions, but in its repertoire are many semi-classical pieces. Mrs. Maxwell says that the club plays for the pleasure derived and the pleasure given. James Tricoukes is president of the club and Marie Kaiser is secretary. -mo- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN MASQUE AND BAUBLE THE stage holds a magnetic appeal for all, whether it is on Broadway or in Newtown. The actors and the plays are surrounded by an irresistible glamour. Only the thespian appreciates the exacting effort required of those who expect to succeed in this profession. There must be an intense at- traction for the footlights to make students stay until seven oiclock in the evening not merely with good grace but rather with pleasure. The practical knowledge obtained by members of Masque and Bauble through their productions is demon- strated at assemblies. Their voice qualities are improved. Poise and assurance are acquired. For those who aspire to a career in the theatre, membership in the league is invaluable. The president is Kirk Price, the vice-president is Augusta Brocato, the secretary is June Jennings and the treasurer is Renee Miles. Miss Isabelle Giroux is faculty adviser. -.12 -. ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' MULTIGRAPH SQUAD l THE Multigraph Squad holds an important and responsi- ble position in the school. They are useful members of an organization which turns out pass applications, book cards, boys P.T. cards and many other types of multigraph work. At the beginning of the term, the members of the squad are taught the theory and practice of multigraphing and training new members. The recruits are taught to set type, run off cards and take care of the machine. Besides this, there are hours after the work is done when the boys are able to relax and enter into an all 'round discussion. The choice of topics discussed is always left to the boys and it never fails to be of interest to all, which means that these boys have the same interests. For their service to the school, the boys are awarded a period pass. The Captain is Floyd Hasselriis with George Leopold as Co-Captain, Harold Harfenist Ist Lieutenant, Harold Todd znd Lieut., Leo Levinson 3rd Lieut. and Richard Harap, Adj. The adviser is Mrs. Marie Terrott. ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' NEWTOWN CHOIR MISS FRIEDA D. BEHRENS has complete direction of the Newtown Choir. Each term tryouts are held to allow all those who are musically talented to join this choral group. Through their brilliant rendering of songs at out as- semblies, the student body has become musically minded. A great deal of the credit for the success of graduation exercises really belongs to the Choir and We thank Miss Behrens and her students for their marvelous work. The Choir participated in last term,s successful' concert. It will take the same part it took last term in this year's gala concert in honor of Mr. C. Irving Valentine, who has been head of Newtown's Music Department for the last twenty-Hve years. Dorothy Nepp is the accompanist. The librarian is Charles Gottemeyer while the two secretaries are Mathilde Leidel and Inge Herolds. I -423- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' NEWTOWN UNION THE English Department sponsors a number of clubs, one of which, the Newtown Union, devotes itself to discus- sion. The union considers any topic in planning its dis- cussions. This term they range from "Euthanasia" to the "World's Fair." There are no initiations for new members. The union considers the tryouts harrowing enough. Anyone who has ever experienced them can vouch for that. Each candidate must make a two minute speech on anything from "Jabber- i wocks" to "Eggs.,' The hard part in this is that the speech must be coherent. Once each term a speaking contest is held for members of the club. The union holds its meetings in the Garretson Library. It prefers the more comprehensive discussion to the formal debate. john Detmold is president, George "Buck,' Eddins is vice-president, Agnes Cashman is secretary and Erskine Ogden is treasurer. Miss Ruth Bass is faculty adviser. - AQ. ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' I OCCID-ORIENT THE objectives of the Occid-Orient club are as follows: l To uphold the standards and ideals of the school, to in- culcate good manners, tolerance and respect for the feelings and opinions of others, and to work for an understanding and appreciation of all the peoples of the world, to study the contributions made by these peoples as a foundation for the better understanding of our own cultural traditions. It is hoped that such a study will bring about a better under- standing, a deeper sympathy and a true love for one's fellow- men. Perhaps such a study if carried on by the schools of every country would lead to "peace on earth and good will to men." To accomplish these purposes speeches are given by members of the club who have lived in or visited the many countries of the globe. The discussions which follow are always enlightening and carried on in the mood illustrative of the aims of the organization. The president is Hugo Knezevich, vice-president Ellen Friedsam, secretary Mildred Pfaff, treasurer Helen Shelley and the faculty adviser is Miss Ada Seabury. ...I2s.. THE ORCHESTRA HE orchestra was founded to furnish music for the school and to give the students an opportunity to study and practise orchestral music and further their appreciation of the best in music. Each section has a leader so that the first violins have a leader, as do the cellos, the trumpets, and all the other in- struments. Each member of the orchestra has a chance to be concert maestro and conduct in the place of Mr. C. Irving Valentine. Mr. Valentine is celebrating his twenty-fifth anniver- sary at Newtown. The orchestra plans to celebrate this event by holding a gala concert during the year at which his former pupils, some of whom have achieved fame in the world of music, will perform in honor of this distinguished head of Newtown's Music Department. Last term's con- cert proved an overwhelming success. The band, the orchestra and the choir will take part in making the coming concert a long remembered celebration. -1z6-- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' PHOTOPLAY CLUB THE purpose of the Photoplay Club is to criticize and recommend motion pictures for the students of New- ' town High School. All candidates for membership must have at least an average of 752: in English before they may be voted upon. As an initiation the candidates are literally heckled into the club. From time to time guests who have had some contact f.-Yi with the motion picture world are asked to speak to the members. Many of the meetings are spent in discussing the outstanding points a picture must possess to be classified as a first grade movie. A comparison of actors and actresses F319 f Sq.

PAN AMERICAN CLUB ACH year and especially now, we, in the United States, realize how important the South American countries are to us and how big a part we play in their affairs. To develop Ll spirit of good will among the youth of these two sections of the western hemisphere, Pan-American Clubs have been formed. These are junior members of the National Pan- American Convention. You mustn't think that the club hasn't its lighter side. Its members, especially the girls, became very interested in . Jai Alai. They went to see the game three times and managed to interview the players afterward. The club invites speakers to address the club quite often but its biggest day each term is the Pan- American Assembly. The club is in charge of the assembly and provides the entertainment. Ethel Schreiner is president, Eileen Grey, vice-president, Libertad Torres, secretary, Ernest Biondo, treasurer and Silvia Cooper, artist. Mr. Walter Porter is faculty adviser. W ,, - 118- ' JUNE I939 NEWTOWN ' d I - . , PHYSICAL EFFICIENCY CLUB THE Physical Efficiency Club of the Newtown High i School is the honor society of the Health Education De- partment. It has been organized to promote general helpful- nessg right habits of living and the prevention of disease. Its objective is to raise the standard of physical eiiiciency so that mental efficiency will be the natural outcome. Only those who pass the posture, athletic, leadership and dancing tests and who will live up to the standards of the Physical Eiiiciency girls are accepted as members. Out of the 4,000 girls who attend Newtown High School only I fifty girls have been chosen. Each term they give a dance in the girls' gym from which they receive enough profit to present an Award to the most outstanding graduate. During Open School Week of each fall term the P. E. Girls with the aid of the Foyer Patrol act as guides and hostesses to all parents who visit the school. The ofhcers are as follows: Adele Shefferman, presidentg Adeline Rydout, vice-presidentg Vera McCarthy, treasurerg Lucile Sickerman, secretary. Mrs. Ella Cox is the faculty adviser. -9- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' PHYSICS CLUB XPERIMENTATION is the thing to which this club is devoted. The Physics Club gives its members an oppor- tunity to perform or to witness many demonstrations, left uncovered by the regular course of study. Many of the latest discoveries and theories in this Science are explained and dis- cussed before the young Physicists at their bi-monthly meet- ings. Various boys or invited speakers also impart their ideas and knowledge at some of these gatherings. New members are chosen from among the Honor -' Students in the Physics Department. Boys are picked who show a decided interest in this subject not only in, but out- side the bounds of the classroom and who wish to learn more of its intricacies and fascinating phases. The officers are Francis Finn, president, Howard Dahl, vice-president, Ed- win Richter, treasurer and Doris Anderson, secretary. The adviser is Mr. Charles Katz. jlJ9f'f'!eS1.'fi5i5ff f .

Perhaps it is the fact that the meetings are run in an orderly but informal manner. The discussions are up to date and the reports given by students are on topics which are educational but not too technical. Some meetings are delightfully arranged by the showing of slides which have been borrowed from the Museum of Natural History. The presiding officer, Thomas O'Shea, with the help of the vice-president, Herbert Gottlieb, has done wonders in planning meetings so that the club will promote an interest in Physiography among the members of the club and among the students of Newtown High School. The treasurer is Eleanor Clemens while the secretary is Joyce Fallier and the faculty adviser is Miss Charlotte Preuss. -131- ,fdafiaa ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' THE RADIO CLUB THIS club is sponsored by the English Department, not the Technical Department. You can readily understand, therefore, that the club is interested not in how to make a radio but in the programs that are entertaining and worth- while. When this club was formed last term, it pledged itself to bring all interesting programs to the attention of the school. The club has obtained tickets to radio broadcasts. In g l fact, the prize for the best initiation this term was a ticket to a broadcast. The club has planned to take the Radio City Television Tour. The president of the club is Jane Ferris, the vice-president, Doris Mylott, the secretary, Mary Alice McGovern. Miss Gertrude Farley is faculty adviser. -132- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' RES GESTAE THE main object of Res Gestae is to stimulate an interest in history. By means of debates, by listening to visiting speakers, by attending historical plays, by going to places of historical interest, the members have enriched their under- standing of the world in which they live. Last term Res Gestae published the first issue of its magazine "Res Gestaef' It was accorded a very favorable reception among the students. The editorial staff consisting of Francis and Thomas Burke, Lawrence O'Neill and John Sarno, received many fine comments not only from members of Newtown's faculty but also from numerous educational sources outside our school. One play attended by Res Gestae last term was "The Big Blowf, This play has as its central theme the intolerance faced by strangers in a "Florida Cracker' community. Peter Wissel is president, Lawrence O'Neill, vice-president, Olga Senek, secretary and Jeanne Commeau, treasurer. Mr. Henry Reinshagen is faculty adviser. -I33.. ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' RES PUBLICA ROMANA HE Res Publica Romana was organized in 1930 at Annex 89. In I937 it came to the main building. Its purpose is "to gain a more thorough knowledge of Roman life, customs and language, to understand more thoroughly the practical and cultural value of Latin and to interest our fellow students therein." The programs are planned with this aim in view. Variety is procured by origi- nal productions by members and occasional social activities. The club owns an ever increasing library containing interesting historical novels, song books, and others purely cultural in nature. Its official publication is the Mercury issued once a term for many years. Its othcial emblem is a pin designed by the club. It has a motto:-"Andi Saperef' The club maintains a membership in the American Classical League. The list of members, past and present, contains names of students who have attained positions of responsibility and honor in the school. The ofiicers for this term are as follows: Consul Primus, Muriel Youngg Consul Secundus, Dolores Schwartzg Censor, Ann Nicholsong Quaestor, Mathilde Loweng Tribunus Primus, Inez Sanandresg Tribunus Secundus, Frances Freemang Editor-in-chief, Beulah Alperin, and Assistant-Editor, Toby Brown. The faculty adviser is Mrs. Myrtle S. Davies. 1134- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' ROOSEVELT CLUB A CLUB which is in existence solely for and dedicated to an ideal is certainly to be looked up to. Such a club is this one. The aim of the Roosevelt Club is to maintain and perpetuate the high ideals and idealism of Theodore Roose- velt in Whose honor this and numerous other clubs through- out the city have been formed. Every member in order to enter took an oath swearing to uphold the ideals of this great President of the United States, to uphold truth and honesty, to protect the weak against the strong, and to be faithful to our form of government. In order to help foster these ideals to which they are pledged each term an assembly is held by the club to commemorate che life of this true American and to tell the students of his work. A medal is given to the boy or girl who best exemplifies these principles. At its meetings an opportunity is given to discuss topics of the day and thereby give the members a clear viewpoint of the happenings in this present day World of ours. The presiding officer is Jerry Lerman with Francis Silverman, Charles LaGattuta, and Dorothy Miller assisting as vice-president, treasurer, and secre- tary respectively. The faculty adviser is Mr. Alfred Carter. -Us- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' THE SCRIBE V N THIS term's issue, The Scribe's policy inaugurated in f -ol? - gg the Fall magazine was continued, with Coronet as an ex- ' emplar. Contrary to the custom of most so-called "literary" 'ii Qsgs school magazines, The Scribe made a definite bid for the 'Q' Q interest of all students with the inclusion of a photographic Zjfx I section, composed of pictures garnered by Newtown stu- dents. Although this waslthe most radical departure from W i3kg'iA,, former issues, short stories were featured in addition to -1 f-K I" i several articles intended to appeal to all having a sense of humor. There is a definite need, however, for a vehicle of ex- pression more suitable for serious productions than the average school news- paper. The Scribe, although versatile, is intended chiefly for such attempts at adult interpretations, rather than material which, while interesting to most, lacks any effort to stimulate thought in the mind of the reader. But in an endeavor to meet both demands, The Scribe attempts to take the better features of each and combine them into a publication that propounds adult theories in a high-school manner. ..l36.. ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' SENIOR COUNCIL THE Senior Council is composed of two representatives from each eighth-term section room, the section class president and the section class treasurer. Senior class policies are determined by these instructed delegates. The Class President Tom McAuley presides over the council meetings every Wednesday. He also appoints committees for such senior activities as the Senior Hop and selection of flowers for commencement. Joe Gorman, the Class Vice President, is major domo of che Senior Prom which is being held this semester at the A. W. A. Ballroom. Our Secretary Veronica Lynch is typist for all senior class correspondence. Without Bill McNiff, the Senior Class Treasurer, we might lack programs, tickets and flowers for commencement, for he has che difficult task of collecting senior dues. Miss Muriel J. Drummond of the Social Studies Department is faculty adviser on senior activities. C137- JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' SERVICE SQUAD THERE is a group of boys in school who are Newtown's handymen. Their real duty is to assist the faculty in maintaining order and discipline and to assist at assemblies. The Service Squad is an illustration of a marvelously maturing process. When the freshman enters school and joins the squad, he has an over-developed sense of responsi- bility and self-importance. Each term he remains in the squad, he learns more and more that true responsibility means a discrimination between unreasonable insistance and 'ustifiable disci line. B the time he's an ei ht-termer, he has 1 H P Y U 3 become poised and understanding. John Heres is captain of the squad. Frank Conlin and Richard Ricchio arc first and second lieutenants respectively. Mr. Eugene Holzer is faculty adviser. ..I3g.. ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' 1 - THE SILVER BLADES UNE of the newer additions to the school's circle of clubs is the Silver Blades. Though new, however, it made one of the most startling entries into school life ever witnessed, during the late fall term. There were over a hundred appli- cants clamoring for admission at its Hrst meeting and the multitude extended past the aisles and desks into the hall. Due to the fact that a room large enough to house such a throng was just about non-existant, the number had to be cut heavily by the officers before the next meeting. This shows, however, what an enormous demand there is for an ice skating club in this school. The Silver Blades have more than lived up to the expectations of its mem- bers. They are constantly going on skating excursions where they practice their twists and turns until many are most proficient and even the poorer skaters are improving daily. They more than accomplish the purpose set forth by them: "to create and stimulate a desire for figure and speed skating." The president is Herbert Richheimer with Victor Alinovi as vice- president. Virginia Anderson and Jane Simmons are secretary and assistant secretary respectively. George Spyro is Treasurer. Mr. Walter Porter and Miss Marie Socie are the faculty advisers. -139- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' SOLDEROLOGY CLUB HE main purpose of the club since its birth is to experi- ment in work higher than that usually covered by stu- dents in Sheet Metal classes. Besides the exhibits which we make each member has a chance to make things for himself providing he has time to spare after his daily program has been completed. Only once in a while do we go on a tour or trip, but when we do you can bet it is one that gives us much pleasure. In November, I937, long before the public had been admitted into the World's Fair grounds, we were conducted through all the partially constructed buildings and secured information about the theme building long be- fore the New York newspapers knew anything about it. From the infor- mation received we were able to construct the many models and the large exhibit of the Fair. Sometime before then, in October of the same year, the officers of the club, Richard Brown, Jacob Blumberg and john Csajko got to- gether with Mr. Joseph A. Danz, our faculty adviser, and made a tour of the North Shore, L.I. We visited many points of interest, the most interesting being the estate of George McKessen Brown. After that we went through the R.K.O. radio fields on the way home. At present, the club is building a Cos- mosorium, the earth as it would look if projected 2o,ooo miles into space. -140-, ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' l R . SPANISH HONOR SOCIETY THE Spanish Honor Society, composed of the very best i students in both character and scholarship taking this language, tries to spread the study and the appreciation of the idiom and culture of Spain and the eight million people south of us. At the meetings which are carried on partly in Spanish, an attempt is made to give an idea of the life and customs of the Hispanic peoples. There is also an oppor- tunity afforded to the members to show their facility in the language by carrying on conversations with natives. "El Faro" the Spanish newspaper of Newtown and l twice medalist in the Columbia Scholastic Press Convention as the best Foreign Language paper of any High School, is sponsored by the Spanish Honor Society. The Editors are supplied and many of the contribu- tions donated by members. The officers are: William Aznaran President William Lorick Vice-President Libertad Torres Secretary Ines Parra Treasurer Miss Marie Soley Faculty Adviser -141- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' SYZITICS THE first thing that strikes you about Syzitics is its name, which though complicated in its form is quite simply derived from the Greek word "argument." One,s interest in this club does not stop there, however, but goes on into one of the most fascinating of activities. Members of this group spend their meetings discussing controversial and live topics. In this way they develop clarity in expressing their view- point, and the ability to speak with facility and ease. Their discussions include both formal and informal l debates with each person volunteering to lead from five to six a term. The procedure usually is to allow each speaker about five minutes to present his side, then a short rebuttal period followed by a discussion from the floor. Occasionally teachers or outsiders are invited to judge a debate or even to participate. In this way, Syzitics' weekly meeting be- comes an educational institution and a trading ground for the ideas and opin- ions of some of Newtown's most intelligent boys and girls. The president is John Mendicino with Ralph Dykes, Hilary Fitch and Thomas Burke as vice-president, secretary, and treasurer respectively. Miss Ruth Miller is the faculty adviser. -142.- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' , f... s..-....., . , TECHNICAL HONOR SOCIETY THE year I936 witnessed the formation of the Technical Honor Society to foster the educational standards and ideals of the Technical Department. Through the kind and able guidance of the Technical faculty rapid strides have been made by the society in its few years of existence. Bi-monthly meetings are held throughout the year. These gatherings have been addressed by such entertaining speakers as Mrs. Arnold, Mr. Green and Dr. Shafer. Inspection tours of manufacturing plants are a further means of engendering an appreciation of the scope of the Technical Course. In this matter the society is not only pro- viding social recreation, but is also giving its members an opportunity to gauge the depth of their interest in engineering affairs by bringing them into contact with actual problems. This term the society is making lantern slides for che Technical Depart- ment. John Robinson is president, Henry Kraetzer is vice-president, Andrew Mclnnes is secretary, George Forker is treasurer and Mr. William Coe is faculty adviser. -143.- ' JUNE T939 NEWTOWN ' TEXTILE ARTS l Y THIS girls' club specializes in clothing and the fashions of the moment. This is an organization Where women may gather and talk to their hearts' content on what the average female of the species should Wear and how to wear it. It is the opinion of the club that a girl's clothes should express her personality and that Art should be used in the choice of wearing apparel just as it is used in the painting of a canvas. In the designing of dresses, etcg art also is a paramount factor. l In order to carry out their theories, these students take it upon themselves to plan and make their own clothes, which, may we add, come out so satisfactorily that many of these girls make almost all their apparel. In this way they also show the average girl how she may have clothes which are easy on her budget and yet be chic and have a great variety in dress. The Textile Arts club surely fills a most felt need in the service it performs for the female element of the school. The president is Irene Singer, the vice-president is Dorothy Whitleman while Margaret Koch and Virginia Zufall are secretary and treasurer respec- tively. The faculty adviser is Miss Hilda V. Berntson. ..,44.. ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' X-RAY STAFF THE purpose of the X-Ray Staff is not only to publish Newtown's school newspaper but also to stimulate school spirit. Scholastic, athletic, political and social activities of the students are efficiently reported upon by lynx-eyed reporters. The X-Ray is received approximately six times a term by all G. O. members. A four weeks course in journalism is given every term to promising English students. Those who show ability are invited to be regular cub reporters. It was with a great deal of pleasure that the students of l Newtown were informed that their school newspaper had won first prize in a contest for all secondary school papers, sponsored by Columbia,s Scholastic Press Association. The Editor-in-Chief is Francis Laxar, while the associate editors are Martha McKee and Ralph Dykes. The Managing Editor is John Detmold and Alfred Jacobs holds the position of Sports Editor. Mrs. Mary MacGarvey is the editorial adviser and Miss Gertrude Farley is the business adviser. -.I4s.. L...-...-.N.,,. ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' - . . r.

Arthur Cohen is in charge of subscriptions, advertising and printing costs. Jack Bayha plans the make-up of the yearbook and is responsible for all the art work. -145- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN .,,, ,,.., Y USHERING SQUAD THE honorary captain of the Ushering Squad is Virginia Riegleman, the captain of the Senior Squad is Helen Vandervoort while the captain of the Junior Squad is Do- lores Schwartz. The purpose of the squad is to seat students at the as- semblies quickly and efficiently. At all third period assemblies, the Senior Squad directs the ushering while the Junior Squad ushers at all the ninth period assemblies. Every girl on the squad wears her traditional uniform which consists of a dark skirt, a white sport blouse and a blue barrel sweater. Each girl carries a baton which is neatly trimmed with red and black ribbon. All in all, the Ushering Squad, which is supervised by Miss Charlotte Eg gleston, is a credit to the name of Newtown High. - 47- JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' SPORTS REVIEW HEARING that Newtown is soon to become the proud recipient of a new trophy case, we sauntered to the upper foyer to gaze at the cups, placques, shields and medals that bear undeniable witness to the prowess of past Pioneer ECLITHS. Although events of the day are vivid and exciting, they too will soon be placed under the mantle of history. Witli such a thought in mind, let us retrace the past events of the year that will represent the glory and honor brought to Newtown by its athletes of the Class of June 1939. Displaying the true perversity of her sex, Dame Fortune smiled warmly on the endeavors of Newtown's crack baseball nine. After a none too con- spicuous season last year, Pioneer sports fans were agreeably surprised to witness a startling rejuvenation in Coach Harry Elbert's aggregation. If the first seven games on the schedule are any indication, the Red and Black diamond clusters are well on their way to the Queens if not City Cham- pionship for they have won each of them decisively. .. 143 ... ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' It will be a sad day for the team and for the school when some of the top-notch players who have helped create this superb showing make their exodus. Ted Scandurra, dusky captain of the basketball quintet, will be missed in the ranks next year for his bullet-like throw down to second allowed little larceny on the base paths and has been a big factor in mowing down the opposition. Much credit is due Johnny Boland for his errorless coverage at third base and for captaining his squad with a minimum of friction. Wally Hajek, Harry Johnson, Bernard Milazzo and Tom Helmeyer, all top-notch players, will also graduate this term. After winning the Queens Basketball Championship for the three previous years, Coach John Nucatola's hoopsters suffered a setback when their mightiest endeavors resulted in a tie for second place in the Queens league. Ably cap- tained by Ted Scandurra, the Pioneer aggregation did not relinquish their heritage without a thrilling struggle. Although the Jamaica quintet emerged victorious, the sting of defeat Was ameliorated since the Newtownites had twice previously defeated the champs. Even though graduation this June will mean the loss of Tommy Bondanza, - ,4, .. ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' 4 Joseph Russo and Jack Rabrich as well as the aforementioned Ted Scandurra, it is expected that Coach Nucotola has enough material on hand to overcome the handicap. It seems almost impossible for any track team to re- peatedly turn in fine performances year after year, neverthe- less, upon looking over past records we find the Pioneer cinder contingent has built up a remarkable score during the l many years of Queens League competition. Not only are the Newtown cindermen the sole Queens team to hold a city championship track title but we have garnered fourteen out of the last eighteen Queens Senior Championship meets. That the present generation has been able to uphold the illustrious pre- cedent is more than amply evidenced by the performances that Coach Lou Werner's proteges have turned in this session. Danny Mindheim, blond mainstay of the team, enjoyed a fine season after annexing the mile title in '38, Danny ran on to greater heights when he cap- tured the Indoor City Champ Crown for a Iooo yards in '39, Alas! The winged feet of Co-captain Al john, Johnny Horvath, John Hinchey and John McQuade will tattoo the cinders for the last time as gradua- tion again takes its formidable toll. -.IsO.. ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' Showing severely their lack of a home pool, the swim- ming team has, nonetheless, produced some outstanding indi- vidual efforts during the current seasons. Specialists in their own particular fields are Thomas McAuley and Thomas O'Connell, both of whom are graduates this term. After losing three members of a City Championship team, the outlook usually takes on a darker hue, but New- town, led by Arthur Cohen and Joseph Gorman and with Bob Gassner as a capable replacement, has high hopes for a repetition of last year's outstanding performance. The team is as yet undefeated and if they continue displaying their present unbeatable brand of tennis, hopes will become facts. PETER WISSEL HARRY KLEMFUSS -.1511 ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' GIRLS TENNIS CLUB T HE purpose of this club is to better the sportsmanship of the Newtown High School. The motive of the group is to build up a team of tennis players who will be able to gain for the school fair competitive ability, enjoyment and pleasure. We aim to foster a tennis team of those girls whose skills exceed the average, and who will be able to compete with other amateurs and perhaps emerge victoriously. We strive to include only those who have high ideals and a sense of fair sportsmanship. With such girls as members we feel that we have a club worthy to be classified among the clubs of Newtown High School. The club though newly formed will not terminate, but will continue in its endeavor to forward these ideals. We hope that we shall achieve the goals mentioned in the preceding para- graphs and shall do our best to keep them as such.

The school kept on going as it will keep on going through better classes and through worse and we just did our best. It was a long four years and yet it was too short. Through it all we were companions. We broke test tubes together in chemistry. We sweated together in the gym and cooled off in icy looks when we were late. It was you and I who skimmed through Mussey, who pasted pictures in our music notebook. We were together in the clatter of typing rooms, in the bustling shop, in the deathly silence of Dillingham Hall after detention had been meted out. We waded through Dickens and staggered through Math. We drew fishhooks in Sten. and Roman Temples in Art. We prayed for fire drills and and exemp- A HALO of mystery and power sits jauntily on his brow. His are the hands that hold the reins of ex- tracurricular activity. He leads. The senior-. We have regarded the senior with awe in all the various stages of our scholastic career and have dwelt with misgivings upon the time when the intricate machinery which he oper- ates so deftly would be placed in our hands. The years slipped by slowly and suddenly we were spectators no longer. Responsibility fell on our shoulders. Our fears were dispelled and it was with joy and a determina- tion to succeed that we accepted this responsibility. Now it was Joe and Bill and Jim who presided over this club and that. It was you and I and not the mighty seniors of yore who had al- ways controlled the activities. Yet we discovered new qualities in each other, qualities which made us respect each -'I93 tions. We were crushed, stamped on and contracted laryngitis games. We had nervous before and after regents. at basketball breakdowns These were traits that made Newtown more than just a school. Throughout our four years as grand ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' a pageant of teams and individuals has passed before our eyes as have ever greeted any Newtown students. We saw Rudy Bieleky lead a basket- ball team to supremacy over all Queens. We saw Jerry Rizzo captain the juggernaut that crashed its way into the semi-finals only to lose the city championships by two points. Then we saw them all graduate and we watched Coach Nucatola weld to- gether a combination of Scandurra, McCarron, Lumpp, Bondanza and McDonald which twice beat jamaica. They were runners-up for the city title, and finished second in Queens. We watched Track and X-Country teams that swamped all Queens oppo- sition and went on to win city cham- pionships. We watched Danny Mind- heim and Aaron Sassulsky garner new laurels. We watched championship handball and tennis teams. -We saw our publications honored by the Columbia Scholastic Press As- sociation, The X-Ray with Francis Laxar as editor. The Scribe with Rich- ard Tynan, and El Faro. We built ex- hibits and won prizes in Science Fairs. We watched certain members of the class forge to the front and finally re- ceive their rewards, Francis Laxar to become Valedictorian, Fran- cis Brandt, Salutatorian in the General Course. In the Vocational Course, Julia Svo- boda will graduate as Vale- dictorian, Julia Paredes, Salu- tatorian. Charles Aderholt and Martha McKee were elected boy and girl leader of Arista, john Geraghty, Walter Hajek and Muriel Fitzgerald were elected as officers of the gen- eral organization. Thomas McAuley, joseph Gorman, William MacNiff and Veronica Lynch presided over the senior class. But now we have come to the part- ing of the ways. Like seed that must be scattered. just when we have had a taste of power and responsibility we must lose it to become freshman in college or novices in business. We have already won our spurs and the clamor- ous fresh blood behind us demands its chance. And our joy at having ascended a rung higher on the ladder of success must be tempered with the sorrow of departing from a place we have known and loved so well. Soon memory will cast a mist over Newtown's spires, a rose-colored mist that will soften sharp words and un- pleasant experiences and enhance the happiness of the many happy hours we have spent here. Yet may this never become a fog, blotting out this land- mark in our career. Let us, rather, keep it in a place sacred to our special memoirs and when we meet again let us be able to recall this thing of beauty which will be a joy forever.

Defmold: They say that I am yet a fool Perhaps they're right, who knows But, if a fool inclined to drool I still can smell a rose. Martha McKee: Gosh, Johnny, you're so poetic. I wrote a verse once, but it went from bad to worse. Ha, Ha. johnny Defmold: Ha. QTwo people saunter by the couple on the bench. They pass the lamp- post, then look back regretfully. Both are well-dressed, but with a slight air of decrepitude. They converse.j Sandy Becker: Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow Creeps in this petty pace from day to payday. Iudy Turner: My dear Sanford, if you would only make your cartoons two- dimensional instead of four, payday might come a bit sooner. You must allow for the inferior intellect of the masses. Detmold fcalling to Becker from the benchj : Becker, my erstwhile fellow-scholar, Becker! Becker: How low have the mighty fallen, O Lord! Defmold: Come hither, both, and divulge the events of the last twenty years as regards yourself. Martha: Yeh, give us the lowdown, kid. They converse in low tones. The shrill streetcars clatter past, periodi- cally illuminating the gaunt faces of all. They remain so for an hour, till the distant clocks strike one. A burly policeman belching rhythmically, addresses them. Policeman Edward Riley: Ho vagrants! On your lawless way, or I'll summarily run you in. Becker: Avaunt, you skulking minion- Riley: Mend your speech lest it mar your puss. I Defmold: That must be Ed Riley. Come, chant your odyssey of these twenty years. Riley: Becker! Detmold! I will, and that with a soft and flute-like voice. QHe reclines sybaritically on the curbstone and begins. And con- tinues. The clock strikes two. Along fumbles the flushing apparatus of the ..ls5...

They continue to tell tall tales about their experiences since leaving Newtown. At three, a male in full dress prome- nades past them. He stops and holds to the lamp-post with a brotherly clutch. They recognize Jerry Lerman. Martha: Still a prominent clubman, Jerry? Indy Turner: Join us. jerry: I have no choice. fHe collapses slowly, sliding down the lamp-post with a practised reptilian grace. The clock strikes four, but is preceded by the gray dark- ness that heralds the advent of dawn. A misanthropic taxi horn hoots mournfully in the distance.

' JuNE19a9 NEwTowN - THANK GOD FOR AMERICA IT SEEMS traditional with mankind to lead a surreptitious existence, never once trusting the fidelity of those he calls his friends. We find him as a primitive creature living in a clandestine cave for fear that the beast who so strangely resembled him would seize his food or crude tools. Developed by time into a dweller of the middle ages, he built himself huge castles to protect himself from aggression, while in his obscure dungeon he wove the cloth of conquest designed to bring him alone great glories. The alchemy of the ages meta- morphosed him into the modern stage, sweeping along with it the priceless treasures of experience for man to employ to his own advantage. Those fortunes man has used perhaps wiselyg and with the satisfaction that results from centuries of fruitful endeavor he looks back at his achievements and calls himself civilized. How like a concealing fog for all his ironical doings that word rings upon my ears! Although I admit with wonder that the scope of inventions is vast and awe inspiring I cannot help regarding the dark silhouette of treachery with contempt. For it is not only discouraging but abominable to perceive beings who will use the high standard of living of our era for the destruction of lives, causing the victims of such schemes to turn and seek a haven in their frenzy. Many have been successful in their searchg others are still wandering, and almost invariably their gaze is upon the American shores. I shall not attempt to recapitulate the romance of early American history. Every school child is fully aware of the fact that the destitute people who were the targets of all forms of persecution in Europe found refuge in the vastness of the New World. America became loved by this noble people because in it they found the most beautiful gift that life can offer-freedom! It is no small wonder that under the capable leadership of these dauntless beings a govern- ment as stable as that of the United States should originate and blossom out victoriously. Europe, on the other hand, has always been a cauldron of trouble. There was a time when the very life of man was not his own but his master's. The mere implication of a thought which denoted "inalienable rights" only brought about sad tragedy. It's true that man rebelled against this feudalism but he was soon suppressed by lust loving individuals who hid behind a dozen excuses in order to hasten their egotistic plans. No longer may our European cousins point out with pride that they are masters of their fates, and their pathetic plight is not ambiguous in anyone's mind. Once more the persecuted are turning their tear laden eyes towards America where the all-embracing arms of liberty will embrace them and provide an opportunity to begin life anew. It is comforting to be able to feel this golden ray through the heavy, menacing clouds that threaten the world's blue skies. Little do we realize how fortunate we are to breathe the air of liberty and opportunity-opportunity for all to succeed regardless of race or creed. We are so absorbed in enjoying life that we find little or no time to appreciate the extremely important con- stituents of our form of government--to lead our individual lives as we see Ht, to give expression to our thoughts and to worship God in our own manner. It is no wonder, then, that America should be a refugee's haven and a byword for righteousness and good will. ..I5g.. ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' We, who in the course of several years will pilot the ship of state, should linger a while in meditation. Let us look ahead with a less cursory glance at the beauty of our lives, let us listen with a more appreciative ear to the music of freedom. Then, with unconquerable determination let us strive to maintain those virtues and ideals which our Statue of Liberty signifies and hand down to posterity that freedom which is so precious to all. Future generations will regard the pages of our history with loving eyes and say as so many of us have already said-Thank God for our glorious government! Thank God for America! LIBERTAD TORRES PEGASUS Why must a poem be Witty and clever, Written with cadency, Fruit of endeavor? Shouldn't a poem be Passionate, glowing, Mirror of ecstasy, Fervency flowing? Isn't true poetry Lovingly tender, Exquisite symmetry, Ultimate splendor? Touch it with tragedy, Dolorous, biting, Born of Melpomene, Tears in the writing. Why not have happiness Following after, Merry facetiousness, Lyrical laughter? What's the quintessence of Poet-devotion? Rhyming the essence of Human emotion? JOHN DETMOLD QUEST Perhaps, in some still, rain-cleansed country road, Or in a Spring I never knew was quite As fragrant as this one, wherein I search, Perhaps in some child,s face, or in a tree That has not lived in vain, or in a prayer, Or in a song that until now flowed by My ears, unheard and meaningless before. Perhaps I'll find it in a poet's words, The nervous shadows from a candle's tip, In someone's smile who also looked in vain, Perhaps the smell of clean, fresh, breaking waves, Or long soft hair, just washed, or dead leaves dried And browned by Time. Perhaps in Time itself. Dear God, I look for beauty in Your world. LAURA L. GOLDBERG .. ,,,.. ' JUNE 1939 NEwTowN - THE LIFE OF A SENIOR THE only thing that enables a freshman to endure all the petty injustices heaped upon his immature and bewildered head, is the assurance that one day he too will enjoy the easy life of senior. Of course, he doesn't yet realize that his discomfort is not caused by the seniors, who are much too exalted even to wish to torment the inexperienced newcomer. But he is right in his assump- tion that by the time one reaches the height of high school glory, the eighth term, life is a pleasant affair. In the first place, the teachers are well in hand by now. We have molded them excellently so that they fit in with the students' plans and they are neither too important nor too insignificant. They are, of course, extremely necessary to the class-but then so are the pupils. There might possibly be a class without a teacher, but never a class without student. Yes, we do have a Senior Day once a term where the seniors personally run the school, but this is really merely a symbol of the everyday state of affairs. Then too we must consider that the senior not only runs the school, but also has the run of the school. There is nary an eighth termer who has not acquired the technique of ignoring the service man when the latter presents himself as an obstacle in the path of the roaming individual. It's hardly neces- sary, however, to learn this system when there is such a variety of passes to be had--X-Ray reporter passes, club secretarial passes, Arista passes, teacher's secretarial passes, ordinary class passes and service squad badges. All of these distinguished looking passports give us the key to Newtown's halls and ordi- narily forbidden rooms. By the time one becomes a senior, he may say a not too reluctant good-by to the days when he was imprisoned between the two bells announcing the beginning and end of a period. I can remember when I often found myself caught in the lunch room, study hall, library, classroom, or wherever I happened to be after the late bell had rung. I didn't dare show myself in the halls during a period because I was in mortal terror of all service men. Now, as seniors, we may Walk freely from one end of Newtown to the other, any time, performing our extra-curricular activities, and flaunting our passes before the inquisitive noses of all the big brutes stationed at every twist and turn. And then there's the matter of free speech. All the free speaking in New- town is done by the senior in his X-Ray, Scribe, and all the foreign publications. Nearly every printed article worthy of appearing in one of these publications has the appellation of some triumphant eighth termer printed neatly in a very conspicuous place. It's difficult to find a freshman contribution, because they only appear at the back of a magazine or paper and usually consist of a four- line poem written in French or German, or a tiny foreign crossword puzzle that -160- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' never works out. The only reason they appear at all is to keep up the spirit of our little newcomers. We must humor them. They complain, of course, that there is entirely too much space occupied by news written by and about the seniors, but after all isn't that our right? We are the most important group in the high school. Yes, our life is an easy and a pleasant one. We enjoy trampling upon the lower termers and the only thing they can do for consolation is say to them- selves, "Well, I don't care. just wait until they get into college and then they too will be freshmen!" MARJORIE LUKE SENIOR PICTURES THERE may be a thorn with every thistle but every situation, no matter how unpleasant, has its redeeming features. Sophisticated seniors might say that having their pictures taken for the year book is one of the worst things that could happen to an unassuming upper-termer. Secretly, they enjoy it. The whole affair has an aura of excitement and suspense about it which no one can resist. They may pretend not to have given the matter a thought, but what maiden didn,t see that her hair was carefully put in place before she stepped upon the stage? What boy didn't remember not to wear a sweater when the day rolled around, and who didnit rush down to the fatal spot only to stand around and fidgit for fifteen minutes more. Every one had to look at the sample pictures on display and speculate as to whether theirs too would be masterpieces, for future exhibits. The sheltering screens tempted the more inquisitive to spy on the innocent poser within. Bystanders tittered, primped, and struck attrac- tive camera attitudes until their turn finally came. They were all neophytes thrilled by the novelty of the work. Her number was paged at last and the little senior feigned indifference. ItVwasn't the boredom, however, that made her all but trip over the wires on entering the screened-in studio. The brilliant lights were a stimulus to an already active brain. While the photographer was telling her to lower the chin just a little, her thoughts were racing. She might have wondered if that one frivolous curl was in place or if the pearls would show in the finished product. Of course the relatives would have to have a picture if any prints looked like her at all. The cameraman interrupted with the request of a smile and accom- panied it with a "that's fine" and would she please look at his glasses? Here was a chance to force a glamorous smile for the benefit of posterity and the people peering through the panels of the screen. -161- ' JUNE 1939 NEWTOWN ' A boy, faced by the beaming lamps, would probably wonder if he should charm his public with a smile or show a stern and thoughtful countenance. Would people look at his proofs and say kindly, "Oh, well, you can take them over again next week," or would they console him with the familiar "Everyone's turned out that way"? Maybe they would vaguely resemble what he always thought he looked like and people might have a hard time trying to decide for him which proof he should use. When the photographer gave his cheery "All right!" the average serene senior rushed out to tell how many snaps had been taken and to say that he didn't think he wanted to see his pictures, wondering all the while how long it would take for the proofs to be finished. If the results looked like the answer to our pleas, we can think that it's just as well in these days of increased regimentation to have something to cure our deflated egos.
