A YEARBOOK, this year, has a deeper mean-
ing than it has ever had before. Let us
hope that as our paths separate, going in
unknown directions, following uncharted

the brighter days that are yet to come.

THE NA'rIoNA1, lloNoR Socncrv is an honorary organization. Membership to this
society is determined by the student's scholarship, leadership, character, and service.
lt is necessary that the student be in the upper quarter of the junior class or the
upper third of the senior class.
The society this year organized the service letter. which is sent to all gradu-
ates and students of North l'lainfield High School who are now in service. This
letter contains news about the boys, teachers and girls who are in service or
industry. This Work entailed the establishment of a complete record tile of all
those who are in the armed services.
In addition, the National Honor Society assisted with the scheduling and
registering of students at the beginning of the year. The members also ushered
at the Baccalaureat Services and Graduation last year.
The Club's advisor is Mrs. E. M. Mayer.
The other members elected in their junior year were:

"Iivif:RYoNE or Lis Mvsr R12 Rlcixm' to do anything to insure an allied victory."
These are the words of the President. Our Student Council, too, has gone "all
out for victory." The Student Council's main projects this year were: the organiza-
tion of the Yictory Corps: participation in the collection of scrap metal, for which
we won the hrst prize: selling defense stamps and bonds: helping with Red Cross
work, and assisting in the pre-induction courses. The service Hag is another im-
portant Student Council undertaking.
Two annual Student Council dances were given. The Student Council hopes
to start a new tradition by giving an exclusive dance for members of the Student
Council and class officers only.
Vie the Student Council, feel that we have done a Fine jolm this year under the
guidance of Mr. Edward Baron and Mr. Kenneth liells. Our only regret is that
we could not be "the voice of the student body," in peace time.

in the armed forces. A copy of this issue was sent to everyone mentioned.

SLNCE THE I,1BRARY's ExPANsIoN, many more students may use the library during
the day. This also means that many more Library Council members are needed to
take care of the extra work.
Any student is eligible for membership in the Library Council provided his
marks are "CH or above. Freshmen are not allowed to join until the second semester
of the year.
Although there are many seniors leaving the Council in June, we know the

in the future under the guidance of Miss Ethel R. XVood.

producing comedy "Nothing But the Trutlii' on November 20 and Zl under the
direction of Mrs, lilizabeth Glaser, the club's advisor. llehind the scenes were the
two dependable stand-bys, most people never hear about. Mr. lirnest Glaser. super-
vising and assisting with the carpentry. and Norman Nelick applying make-up to
our beloved thespians.
Early in the year Mrs. Glaser took some would-be actors and actresses under
her wing and formed a Junior Dramatic Club for apprentices. Under her guidance
the students learned the technique of acting and producing plays.
Several trips to New York City were enjoyed by both clubs. The Junior
Club attended the stage play, "Life VVith Father," while the Senior Club completed
its plans to see "Angel Street."
The Dramatic Club ended its successful season at the annual dinner held at
the Park llotel in Plainheld.

BOTH THE SENIOR AND THE JUNIOR GROUPS have cooperated to make the year
1942-43 an extremely enjoyable and successful one. The following meetings were
particularly outstanding: Dr. Waldo's talk, Date Night by Firelight, Hi-Y and
Hi-Tri joint swap night, and Swim night.
The social affairs consisted of two formals and one informal dance. One can't
speak of the Hi-Tri without mentioning the song festival at which a good time
was had by all who attended.
This year would not have been successful without the aid of the Girl Reserve
Planning Chairman, Miss Cole, and the advisors, Miss Adams, Mrs. Martin, Miss
Gunderson, Miss Pilon, Miss Donovan, and Miss Grant.
A year draws to a close but the senior members will never forget Hi-Tri and
the things it has brought them.
To the juniors, Sophomores, and Freshmen the departing senior Hi-Tri leaves
the laughter and good times that Hi-Tri brings to many girls. 4

Iust a Little Thought for the Class of "1943"

To carry your carqo and make your port is the point.
