THE SENIOR CLASS OF 1943
Like so many other boys all over the country, we fthe senior classl were faced with a truly perplexing problem. The
future was unknown, and indefinite, and few could make any plans. On looking at the record ofour class, each of us
is inclined to pal himself 011 the back, for regardless of all the "unknowns," our record is good. We have managed
to continue all senior activities, carry heavy courses, and yet we have come out on top.
The future for most of us still remains uncertain, but a few of the more fortunate are certain. ln the arnled forces
up to date are: Bill lless-Army Air Corpsg Paul Hemmerich and David Archbald-Naval Air Corps: Eddie Walsh-
Navyg and Torn Schaeffer. Al Rogers and Ross Hall will probably enter the Army, via draft, shortly. "Dutch" Cole
has already left for the Air Corps, and Park Bagley is now in the Coast Guard. Wayne Rutter and BQMHFSIIQ, Davis
are both in college. Many others are planning to attend college, but few are sure of il.
The Senior Class of I943 has completed a successful year, and we feel certain that such a class as this will continue
its fine record, wherever it may be.

David is one ol that distinguished group of boys who entered way back in '35. Even in the lifth and

Niebtis. Since the momentous day of his arrival, he has tlayed an important part in the schnol's ac-
tivities. "Little Arch," as he is fondly called, has not nnly 'been an outstanding: athlete, eaptaining both
varsity. tennis and soccer teams. but can be frequently found on the honor roll.
Dave divides his spare time between various forms of enjoyment at Lorraine, and his hobby, birds.

Since enteriuv Nichols as a freshman, Marsh has distinguished himself in various lields of athletics.
Making the basketball tenln for three consecutive 'cars, his hei ht has made him n mainstay of the team
at center. Besides throwing the discus on the trach team, Mari was a member of the hue forward wall
of this year's football team.
Outside of his school activities, Marsh takes quite an interest in howling and swimming, not to men-
tion . . . Well maybe we had better not mention her here.
Due to a tough academic schedule and these outside interests we are unable to classify him as one of
the "brains" of the class, but Marsh does hope to be able to further his knowledge of heating, refrigera-
tion, and stcanilitting at Carnegie Tech next year.

DAVID FERNOW Entered: Sstfraxtusn 1940
In the three years Dave has been here. he has acquired prominence in athletics and in scholarship. In
soccer and hocke ', Dave has eapably held down the position of center for two years. The title of "Biggest
Grind," for which he placed second, accounts for the fact that his name frequently appears ou the honors
list and the coveted ' privileged seniors" list.
Dave has more than held his own with the fairer sex too. Replete with his "Mercury 19-il snappy club
coupe" and the two titles, "Best Dressed" and "lIandsomest," Dave has learned more about triangles
out of school than in class. Lately, Dave has been saving his ration coupons by not driving his car to
school duri 1' the week. This gives him enou h gas to ride out to the suburbs over the week-end.

"The hockey team will hand in its jerseys, or else!"
This, or some other statement, made in Ross's inimitable voice, has frequently been heard at luuclt
hour. Another member of that clan of distinguished young men who entered in 1935, "Nat" has since
made an enviable name for himself. Of a naturally quiet nature, Ross surprised the entire upper sehool
by his forceful statements, or demands, on the hockey team.
His executive ability was demonstrated during his tnanagership of the hockey team. It was during this
term that he gained his reputation as a slave driver, which his assistants will verify. His charming per-
sonality, and good nature were proven by his uncanny ability to obtain ads for this yearbook.
"Nat" will vacation and matriculate in the U. S. Army.

the "middle man." Through this Council the students may ex-
prcss their various likes and dislikes lo thc faculty, and rice versa.

Another of the Council's more important duties is the election
of the various committee chairmen, usually from the Counci1's

The Junior Council is a Lower Sehool organization eonlposed
of representatives of the various elnsses. Mueh like the Student
Conneil, its purpose is to uequninl the faeully with the wislles of
the students, and to help lhe faculty in wlmtever way possible.
ll is un iinporlanl cog in the disciplinary SyEl0Ill of lhe Lower
Sehool. and it has done ntueh I0 develop leaders among the
boys. Another important funelion of the Conn:-il is the super-
vision of all extra-eurrieular uetivilies. This year they met with
unusual sueress in direeting several Red Cross drives.
Coming from the Fifth Grade is Durranl Kellog. with Chester
Dann representing the Sixth Grade. Dick Barrick is the First
Form xnemhcr. Robert W. Jones, Edward Webster Dann, and
Roger Gibson represent the Seeond Form. These boys deserve
congratulations for having very sueressfully fulfilled their duties
during the past year.

Al the beginning of this school year the senior class was faced
with the problem of whether or not to continue the publication
of the VERDIAN. This question arose out ol' an anticipated
scarcity of advertisers, and a lack of an editor having suflicient
time to spend on the hook. The appointment of eo-editors solved
the latter problem. therefore the class decided that the VERDIAN
should be published this year. although with a somewhat re-
dueetl budget. One of the steps taken in the interests of economy
was the elimination of individual informal snapshots, which
have appeared in the yearlxooks of the last few years. In most
other respects this thirty-third edition resembles its immediate
predecessors. Because the securing of advertising has been a
very difficult job, the Verdian Board feels doubly proud of the
fact that it has been able to offer the VERDIAN for sale at the
lowest price in its history.
Although a comparatively small body this year, the Verdian
Board has endeavored to maintain the fine standards set by
previous VERDIANS, and we here wish to thank everyone who
has contributed to the success of this edition.

Following faculty requests for newsprint of better quality, the
editors of the 19-1-3 News took il upon themselves to make many
radical changes which would remedy the situation. ll was finally
decided to publish a quarterly review of Nichols activities,
initiating such novelties as a noteworthy alumni colnlnn and
feature articles by masters concerning wartime life and educa-
The quarterly offers great flexibility, and, should the school
go on nn accelerated schedule sometime in the future. a review
of summer happenings will appear. The magazine form permits
the advantageous use of more euts and has been widely heralded
by the advertisers and alumni.
This year's staff has been formed chiefly from new material,
and it is very gratifying to see such widely spread Fifth Form

Duc to the delay in appointing an editor and to unavoidable
priming delays, thc lirst issue ofthe Gleaner did not appear until
March 21, but the high standard of quality set by the Cleaners
in recent years was upheld. The "Nichols Publications' Literary
Award," consisting ofa livc dollar prizc given to thc author of
the best article in the issue, provided an incentive particularly
to the students of thc lowcr forms, who contributed a host of
remarkably mature articlcs. The great majority of the articles
in the first issuc had to do with thc war or with problems
brought about by thc war. The Literary Award was presented
by Mr. Fox, who reviewed thc first Gleaner, to Russell Osborn,
for a stirring poem entitled "Pearl Harbor." Both issues showed
the consciousness of the students to the great war and post-war
problems facing the nation today.
We wish to congratulate the editor and staff of the Gleaner for
the fine work they have done under trying conditions. A promis-
ing future is seen for our literary publications due to the wealth
of material contributed to the Gleaner by the Fourth and Fifth
Forms this year.

The Charities Committee this year was forced to undergo one
of the most trying campaigns in its history. Owing to the post-
ponement of the Drantatics Club and the candy sales for the
duration, the committee lost two of its chief sources of raising
funds. The Committee, under the leadership of Eddie Walsh
who was ably assisted by Allen Short and Dann Stevens, took
over completely the running of the Hockey Dances. Five very
successful Record Dances were given and all the proceeds were
added to the Charity Drive.
Since it is the custom to aid all other charitable organizations,
the Red Cross Drive was waged during the winter months
under the able leadership of Allen Short.
The final drive which carried the school over the top took
place the first week iII May. Completion of a successful drive
was due chiefly to the splendid co-operation of the students, aIId
the line work carried on by the mepthers of the Committee.

can mnkc at this time is to use our manpower on
projects directly identified with the war effort.

Kittinger Furniture and Williamsburg Restoration

"COORDINATION"-not a large word but a word America is becoming more conscious of every day as
we bend our united might to the struggle before us and lndustry keeps ponderous step with the rythmic
sweep of our Armed Forces. A small word-but it embodies a principle upon which our success depends. It
means the strictest economy of Money, Materials, and Time! B J H learned to appreciate tllat principle a
long time ago. It is for tllat reason that we have consistently advocated the coordination of all factors of
yearbook production. We are proud to have demonstrated this principle in the production of this yearbook.
