670144 .JQ451f0rg-fmffwa' This year our Senior Class witnessed the arrival of three new boys: Carl Holmes, a versatile athlete and captain of the Basketball team, Andrew Knox, a high scorer on the Basketball team, George Wilmot, a tall boy, who is good in all sports. Had it not been for the unfortunate deaths of Stuart Porter on March 24, 1939, and Bob McKeown on May 9, 1940, our class would have two more members. Also leaving school this year with the Seniors are five Post Graduates: John Ande- regg, John Baker, Harold Cashmore, Reynold Devinney, and William Trapp. um ofaucfe jbciefy The Cum Laude Society is an organization fostering high ideals of scholarship in young people below the college level. In the secondary school it holds a place comparable to that of Phi Beta Kappa in the colleges. It was founded in 1906 at The Tome School and now has chapter societies in nearly all of the larger preparatory schools and also in some high schools. School chapters are made up originally of faculty members who are heads of de- partments, in addition to any who, in their college work, have received outstanding scholastic honors or who have earned advanced degrees. The original group is empowered to elect, each year, new members from the Senior Class, the right to membership being restricted to those in the top twenty per cent of the class in scholarship ranking. Until recent years, these elections were made at the end of the Senior year and the investiture made at the commencement exercises. More recently, however, elections to the ex- tent of half the quota, ten per cent of the Senior Class, have been made after the mid- year exams and the newly elected members are formally admitted into the Chapter at special chapel exercises. The Pingry Chapter of the Cum Laude Society was established in 1925 and since that time has, each year, added to its membership through annual elections. Election to the Chapter is a goal toward which a considerable number of the Senior Class always strive-a very commendable goal-and, like any such goal, its value lies not in having attained it, but in having striven to attain it. Therefore, though the race be won by few, all those who enter and do not lose heart, are the fitter for the long race to follow. Page Thirteen

641,55 ckfafory 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.

HANS ANGERMUELLER October 7, 1924 410 Casino Avenue, Cranford "Baron" "Angy" Harvard President of Class 1, 25 Vice-President of Class 3, Student Council 45 Record Board 3, 4, Managing Editor 43 Literary Club 45 President 45 French Club 43 Dramatic Club 4, Chair- man Ring Committee 3g Football 45 Blue Book 45 Dance Committee 4. Hans has been with us for a good many years, but our admiration for him increases daily. A scholar of great ability, Hans has been a member of the football squad for the past two seasons and performed admirably in this year's Dramatic Club production, "Thunder Rock." His work as Managing Editor of the Record has gone no small way toward leading that enterprise through one of its most successful years, and his expertly drawn cartoon pepped the publication up consider- ably. Good luck at Harvard, "Boopsy,,' not that you'll need much. WILLIAM ROBERT ASHER November 2 3, 1923 1 Renner Avenue, Newark "Bill," "Aslan A Yale Camera Club 25 Bridge Club 3, French Club 45 Record 33 Debating Team 1, 33 Soccer Team 3, 4, Tennis Manager 4. Bill is one of the more silent members of the classg as a matter of fact, his presence near the top of the class stand- ing is one of the th-ings that make us most envious of him. Bill has worked hard this year in arranging matches for the tennis team. He also was one of the vital members of Mr. West's soccer team. Bill is headed for Yale and we want to wish him all the success and luck which we know he will at- talll. Page Fourteen lx Nxs .-QQ: ".:-AQ: lx:
