There are thirty members in the graduating class of 1942. Of this number only three
boys started in the First Grade and remained in the school for twelve years. The
veterans of twelve years are Richard English, Scudder Mackey, Edwin Miller.
Neither the Second, Third, or Fourth Grade gave us any new students. In the
Fifth Grade, however, we caught our first glimpse of Tom Mullen, who is now very
skillful in the operation of a camera.
In the Sixth Grade we received Bob Gamble, a good authority on all sports, but foot-
ball in particular. Also during this year, we were the class that was last taught by Miss
Budd for a full year.
The following year we went up the stairs to the Middle School room directed by
Mr. Vars. In the First Form we met Hans Angermueller, a Cranford boy who has very
frequently been on the Honor Roll. John Scharwath, also, entered Pingry this year.
John probably reads more books than any other member of the class.
On the first day of our eighth year in school, we were taught by a member of the
faculty who was making his debut in the school, Mr. Atwater. We received Edwin
Becker, a mathematical genius, and Cary Carpender, a famous member of the Rod and
Gun Club. Everett Reid, a commuter from Metuchen, was added to our ranks as well
as Paul d'Esterhazy, president of the Dramatic Club.
Upon our arrival into the Upper School, we received eight newcomers. Bill Asher,
the best history student in the class, John Brenner, whose ability as an actor in our
annual play is the envy of us all, Charles Clarke, who is always found running around
doing work for the Blue Book Che is its editorj, Cliff Gehring, a rather quiet boy but
an expert photographer, Fred Gordon, the fellow who is on the Honor Roll every
month, Richard Hughes, who is interested in technical work, Howard Lupin, a com-
muter from Bayonne, and Richard Turk, a Staten Island boy, Whose keen mind has kept
him in the upper part of the class.
Our Sophomore year brought us only two more students. Butler Heilner, whose
nice car all of us would like to possess, and Charles MacMaster, sports writer of the
Record and baseball manager.
Cur class was augmented by five new members during the next year: Leon Bark-
horn, a boy of moderation both in studies and in sports, William Cameron, who is
known mostly for the skill and ease with which he drives his Chrysler convertible, War-
ren Horre, a very accurate shot with the shotgun, and Bob Peets, the happy-go-lucky
president of the Dance Committee.
