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
