s with all great in- stitutions, the be- ginnings can often be the most troublesome of times. In many ways, so it was with Country Day. Yet when Smith Academy became Country Day School in 1917, Codasco had an advantage, Co- dasco had "Miss Minnie." Miss Minnie Feldwerth was in charge of both the kitchen and all the house- keeping at the school. Ev- ery day she prepared the noon-time meal for the students and their mas- ters. Miss Minnie orga- nized her own kitchen from the young women who lived near the school. Miss Minnie and her staff managed to battle their way through the enor- mous appetites of the boys. Miss Minnie pulled Coun- try Day together through- out the first decade of the school. She was the pro- vider during the hour of relaxation at lunch each and every day. Miss Min- nie was an active force during the first decade at Country Day, and her de- termination served as a symbol to others in the Country Day community. by Chris Lopata 4 uring the 1930's, the school was situ- ated off Brown Road. The campus was made up of buildings simi- lar to those on our present campus, with the excep- tion of an indoor gym. The school had most of the ex- tracirricular activities we had in the 80's, like the "News," the "Codasco," and Troubadors. Even back then, the school's biggest rival was John Burroughs. Yet the conditions of the country were differnt. The school was not exempt from the adverse effects brought about by the Great Depression. In 1932, enrollment had decreased by twenty percent. Al- though the tuition had been raised to five-hun- dred dollars in 1928, be- cause of the multitude of services offered to the boys, lowerering the tu- ition during these hard times was not possible. Everyone felt depression's grasp. The faculty suf- fered a ten percent pay cut in their salaries, and many fund raisers were orga- nized to increase the school's income. by Ryan Guilliams 4-iffiaw -1 - -f x iii:-r f--1. - ' " -: Y 1-. -t ga . if .Q L --Q 3,2 . . .,,. e sf .Am .
