It is the custom to have a foreword, and so, of course, we must have
one. It seems superfluous, adding nothing to the honor of anyone, and
only unprofitably detaining those who are anxious to get on to more
important things, but it is the custom. Yet it is good for more than that.
Though indeed it does not increase their honor, it enables us to express
our gratitude and appreciation to many for a great number of things.
The task of telling our sentiment to the Faculty is more than we
can put in a mere "Thank you," or in many pages of them. It is the
affection that we have for those who took us, a pretty raw set of
youths, and made us as much of men as we are. In the knowledge
that we realize, somewhat, the things they have done for us, they will
read our gratitude.
We wish to express our appreciation to Mr. Pedrick for the guidance
and assistance he has given us in putting out this annual, as well as
the "pep talks" he gave us at frequent intervals throughout the year
when we needed them most. And Mr. Fenton, our senior class advisor,
also deserves our appreciation.
I personally would like to take this opportunity to thank those mem-
bers of the staff who have helped me most in working on this book,
and to whom the lion's share of the creuit belongs. This includes Bill
Phillips, for writing most of the copy, Duncan MacQueen and Jim
Weaver, for keeping us out of the red financially, John O'Dowd, for
his able assistance as fellow-collaborator, Bob Watts and Bill O'Rourke
fthough not a member of the staffl, for their work in photography,
and Pete Schmauss and Roger Davenport, for their contribution of the
As art editor, Pete also executed the drawings displayed on the
divider pages and elsewhere throughout the book, where he has
brought to life a little known and often forgotten figure who represents
life at Stony Brook, the school bear. l hope he will appeal to your
aesthetic taste, and that you will enjoy looking back with him at a
year at Stony Brook.
Finally we want to extend our thanks to the advertisers, without
whom it would have been impossible to produce this book.
That is all. Pass on. If the book gives you as much pleasure to read
as it gave us to write, we will be repaid, and if in the far future it
helps keep alive the love and memory of Stony Brook, its mission
will have been accomplished.

During the past six years since Mr. Pedrick came to Stony Brook he has been an active
force in life here at school, and we have come to appreciate the many things he has
done for us and the guidance he has given us through his Christian testimony, not
only in the classroom, but in all phases of campus life. As the advisor to this year's
RES GESTAE he has been especially close to the senior class and has been instrumental
in getting us to secure sufficient funds to produce this book.
It is therefore with sincere gratitude that we dedicate the 1952 RES GESTAE to
Mr. W. Roberts Pedrick.

FAVORITE EXPRESSION: "I don't quite
The habits and customs of "Oxford Charlie", who orig-
inally came from Brighton, Sussex County, England, are
as typically English as cold toast or a spot of tea. Natur-
ally he is a champion defender of the Great Empire,
and he delights in making invidious remarks about the
States. Bob prides himself on his collection of British
clothing, lespecially tiesl, and he's a watchful follower
of the latest in English styles and fashions. In his hobby
of stamp collecting he is building up on American collec-
tion, which he plans to have equal his British exhibit.
Though he might not make the House of Lords, by his
sheer individuality alone Bob can't help but distinguish
himself in his post-graduate activities.

FAVORITE EXPRESSION: "ls it the greatest,
From his favored sphere of Washington, D.C., and from
Western High School in particular, "Big Jim" made his
exodus to Stony Brook. Often seen with a suspicious grin
on his face, he has been active in all the mayhem of
Hegeman, second floor, and has put up a good fight for
nomination for the coveted distinction of class clown.
Since Jim's pet indulgence is Gothic lettering, examples
of his hobby can be seen emblazoned on Iackets and
other apparel worn by many on the campus. Although
he cares little for playing other sports, baseball has a
strong appeal for him. After graduation, Jim hopes to
get an appointment to Annapolis.

We first became acquainted with this Red Bank, New
Jersey, stripling Cwho ioined us this past yearl when he
ran cross country in the fall. As a second-place winner
in the Ivy League Meet, a varsity basketballer, and a
track man, "Becko" proved himself athletically. As for
studies, his proficiency in that particular area needs no
further comment. Having been a member of the Chris-
tian Association and an all 'round fellow, Gordon's
presence benefited us all this year.

To know "Boge" is a real experience-he has a sense
of humor that is without parallel. We say this sincerely.
It's not so much his having something clever to say in the
first place fby drawing on a rich stock of catchy phrases,
sports lingo, and radio gemsl, but it's iust the way he
brings forth these tidbits. There's something about the
look in his eye, the subtle infiections of his voice, and
his general mannerisms that have made him the class
iester and general favorite for two years now. Though
not even Boge knows what the future holds in store for
him, we're sure he will continue "making people laugh."

Dave has iust recently returned East by moving to Bing-
hampton, New York, from Los Angeles. No stranger to
Stony Brook, he attended school here several years dur-
ing the war before moving out to try that California
sunshine. During the football season he helped Mr. Fen-
ton coach the midget squad. He is better known, how-
ever, for his hobby of body building, which has become
a widespread Hegeman activity. "Dad", as he is com-
monly referred to, has spent a great deal of his time in
drawingp and since that is his maior interest, he should
have clear sailing in taking up art as a career.

Eighteen years ago in Asbury Park, New Jersey, arrived
a blond, blue-eyed babe dressed in a red parka under
which could be seen a track uniform. In 1944, Gordy
entered the fifth grade at Stony Brook, but four years
later he also made the exodus to California with his
family. Before coming back to Stony Brook as a senior
this year, he had racked up some impressive track per-
formances on the Coast, which process he repeated for
us this spring. It is certainly with reluctance that we part
with this very natural and likable Brownville brother.

FAVORITE EXPRESSION: "Let's sit down and
talk it over."
As another first-year man, this gentleman from Mont-
clair, New Jersey, has done a superlative iob of ad-
justing himself at Stony Brook and becoming a friend
to many. This is quite understandable in view of his
pleasant, wholesome naturalness and his athletic talent,
which earned him a football letter and places on basket-
ball and track teams. Hank's being something of a gour-
met makes Room 2 an invaluable source of home-made
"goodies" and like items5 away from school, macaroni
and steaks are his No. 'I favorites.

FAVORITE EXPRESSION: "Hey, Brother."
This fun-loving chap from Smithtown is one of our four
day boys. The advantages of living at home have indeed
made him a valuable member of our class because of
his ability to secure dates for class parties for his less
fortunate classmates. Charlie's marked trait is taking life
as it comes and with plenty of laughs-he laughs at any-
thing striking even a minor chord of humor, especially
anecdotes in P.C.'s English class. One of our excelling
sprinters in track, we're going to miss seeing "Brother
Charlie" sail up Chapman Parkway each morning5 but
we wish him success as a possible candidate for mayor

PASTIME: Being absent-minded
FAVORITE EXPRESSION: "No iokes, AI, it's
too early in the morning."
Perhaps the proximity of Cope's home town, Camden,
to Yale University helps make him something of a "Joe
College." When not engaged in writing epistles to
young ladies or groaning under the strain of forty
pounds in Brownville's "gym", Dick's voice is apt to
be heard issuing from any room filled with "the bays."
After saying "That's common senSe'f on one occasion in
plane geometry last year, the nickname of "Common
sense Cope" stuck firmly-maybe because it fitted any-
way. Dick's humor and geniality, his playing as a foot-
ball back, and his being a hard hitter in baseball have
all helped make him a guy with real popularity.

years' ago he was a day student, but, day or' boarder,
'his fakes, pranks, and impish grin have Aalways made
this Kings Park chap one of the most popular of our
number. lt anybody ever loved basketball, it's Roge. As
far as he's concerned, the only thing that can possibly
approach it is cross countryp and even that falls short.
Nevertheless, for three years Davy has added to that

addition received the '49 Trophy for being the most
valuable team member during his senior year.

Bob first became interested in Stony Brook through con-
tact with his pester-tsssrsf our alumnii back in Okla-
homa. Beginning with this arrival two years ago, his
friendliness and of humor, ,aided by membership
in the Christian Association and glee club, have won
him a number of friends. Being our school bell ringer lost
year, his slogan "Every bell on time" was broken only
once, and that occasion occured when he awoke one
bright morning and found that a quantity of plaster of
Paris had been poured by some innocents, during the
night, into the inverted form of that musical instrument
which stands outside Johnston Hall.

FAVORITE EXPRESSION: "Dat's right!"
Truly one of our class characters is this Brooklynite, who
flike all its citizensl is proud to claim that province as
his own. Carl has a mania for three things: raising hamp-
sters in the biology lab, eating his mother's Swedish
cooking, and getting into all kinds of trouble here at
school. Somehow resulting penalties never seem to catch
up with him, though we kid him considerably about his
antics. His spirit, has activated J.V. teams, and being
a loyal Dodger fan, Uno is heard quite often singing
the praises of "dem Bums." Although Carl may not suc-
ceed in his ambition as stated above, it is without doubt
that the world of science holds much for him.

"Big Al," one of our class members of real note, arrived
at Stony Brook from the Bronx in the middle of our
junior year. Since then, an output of three-and-four
word poetical gems and his devotion to the classics
have established him as the "poet laureate" and music
lover within our midst. His record collection is his ioy
in life, and having suspected that he would be called
upon to deliver an oration on such a subiect in our ex-
temporaneous speaking contest this fall, he outfoxed us
all by preparing a speech beforehand. We all follow
Al's future with fervid interest, and are confident that
he will make a name for himself in whatever field of
endeavor he decides to engage.

From the Hill School came Paul last year, for us he has
proved a worthy addition to at least three Blue and
White athletic teams. If there was ever devotion shown
to a sport, this enthusiastic matman has given such to
wrestling. Not without result either, last year he was
undefeated in his six matches. Another outstanding
wrestling season was sandwiched in this year between
playing guard in football and fielder in baseball. Paul
intends to major in physical education at nearby Hofstra
College, after which he plans to become a wrestling

"Steady Eddie," one of our day students, settled in our
own village of Stony Brook in 1947. Since his subsequent
entrance into school, Ed has gotten along admirably
with all of us, especially since he is a rather prolific
source of dates for those few free Saturday evenings
when class parties make pleasant breaks in our routine.
The great enthusiasm of motorboat racing and horse-
back riding occupies summer vacation time for Ed. In
history class we notice the countenance of this gentle-
man is usually o'erspread by an angelic appearance
whenever Mr. Rosenberger looks around the room to
inquire as to the cause of various disturbances which
crop up now and then.

"Kruscher" entered last fall as another of our P.G.'s.
During the year his bass voice made him an asset to
both the choir and the glee club. lSome of those deep
notes which have occasionally drifted down the hall
were found to have originated in his rooml. A varsity
man in football during the fall, he undertook basketball
in the winter and baseball in the spring. His post-.Iune
plans center on studying dentistry, for which he will
attend Wheaton, before going to Tufts for his D.D.S.
It's been pleasant knowing you this year, Kruscher, so
we say, "Best wishes" in parting.

"Here's a goodly tumult."
-King Henry IV 64
Looking back over Stony Brook football, 1951, a
sideline strategist can have only one general im-
pression: though we had good potential material,
spirit was up, and effort commendable, our boys
were lust plain green.
ln the opening classic with Poly Prep, we expected
and received a fight from a spirited, experienced
team which, though it had won no games last year,
had come a long way since then. Cook, who kicked
off for all our games, inagurated Football, '51 with
a kick off which was received by a determined Poly
team. The Shore Roaders, with good blocking and
tackling, soon scored in the first quarter and once
each in the others to make the final score 26-6, their
favor. For Stony Brook, Bob Slep made one of the
most spectacular plays of the season: after Poly had
gone into punt formation and kicked to our ten,
"Slippery Slep," aided by good interference, faked
their last tackler on the fifty to complete his eighty-
seven yard sprint for the goal line.
One of the better played contests of the season
was the away game with Horace Mann, which proved
to be our sole triumph. The first T. D. of this second
pigskin foray came in the second quarter when
Schmauss carried a hand-off taken on the nine yard
line. Thanks to line bucking, we got the extra point,
which was perhaps the determining factor in the
outcome of the game.
"To hear the shout and brazen sound of war."
A w. ..., ...
"He knows the game: how true he keeps
the wind." -King Henry VI
Play was tight in the first half. Horace Mann
brought the ball deep inside our territory by pass
interference but was halted four times on our one
yard line. Then with thirty seconds left to play in
the half, Slep intercepted a Horace Mann pass on
our goal line, ran 55 yards, and lateraled to Provan,
who covered the remaining distance.
The second half saw the Van Cortlandt boys come
back with renewed energy which resulted in 3 Horace
Mann touchdowns in the fourth quarter. With the
score I8-13 in their favor, Chuck Tagart passed
from the 15 to the 45, from which Gordon Brownville
dashed down the sideline to cross the line and make
it 'I9-18 for Stony Brook.
The Adelphi game, played at Red Hook Stadium
in Brooklyn against a big, experienced team, saw
us outplaying our opponents in the first half, tiring
n the second, and finally getting clipped 12-6. The
irst score came in the third quarter when Adelphi
'allied in rapid succession a pair of six-pointers. ln
'he same period we scored only a single touchdown,
which was effected by Provan, who took a lateral on
heir 45 and went the distance. The Brooks, ham-
nering away at a stubborn, unyielding Adelphi line
n the fourth quarter, were kept at bay, and the
tcore registered at the end of the third quarter pre-
failed. Throughout the contest hard playing and
ackling was present on both sides, but as in all our
james, trivial mistakes made at the wrong time
The following Saturday we again lost by one
touchdown, this time to St. Paul's. Having lost its first
four games, St. Paul's finally cracked loose on the
fifth to post a 7-0 win over Stony Brook. The sole
T. D. was made in the third quarter by Paul Bruns
of St. Paul's, who set up the scoring plunge by a
60 yard pass to Ross, his teammate. Another Bruns
to Ross pass accounted for the extra point. A home-
ground affair, this game was a bitter pill to swallow:
four times in the first half we carried the ball inside
their 20-yard line, but to no avail. Though we were
outplayed on the whole, the action of the afternoon
saw Schmauss picking up 130 yards, Provan 45, and
Dubbed the Mud Bowl game last year, the annual
contest with Northport was again harassed by rain,
this time causing it to be postponed until the following
Tuesday. Unfortunately, this worst-played game of
the season, which had usually been considered a
practice game, was turned into a rout. Although we
played against a slightly larger team, we were ham-
pered by errors, and though our offense rolled up
and down the field, repeated drives seemed to fizzle
out. Northport's first score in the second quarter was
matched in the third by a sustained drive from mid-
field, and Keen made the extra point by recovering
a fumble over the scoring side of the goal line. But
Northport retaliated with a series of touchdowns that
made the final score: Northport 27, Stony Brook 7.
Without a doubt the best-played and hardest-
fought game was with Riverdale. The final score,
"I fear our happiness is at the highest."

"O sight thrice-welcomed to my ioyful soul."

I have tried and still have won no foot of ground."
"Is there no hope?"
29-13 in their favor, signified little, for Stony Brook
achieved something of a moral victory that after-
noon. As things stood before the game, Riverdale,
with its last year's team back in foto, was enioying
a five game winning streak. Aiming for the lvy
League crown, it manifested great confidence and
expected an easy victory. On the other hand, the
only thing we could do was to fight a little harder
and hope for the best. Though we didn't get the
best, we did pretty well once we got started.
After a lethargic first half, the score stood 22-O,
Riverdale, with their first touchdown having been
made by a first quarter end run, the second by a
55-yard drive, and the third by completing a 25-yard
pass. In the second half Stony Brook vanquished its
stage fright and roared back to do its best playing
of the season. Tagart, on a quarterback sneak,
made a third period touchdown from the enemy one-
yard line, and Schmouss scored from the six in the
fourth. Riverdale racked up its own final score by
intercepting a desperate Bruin pass made at the
very close of the game.
The Trinity game, the perennial close of each sea-
son, was an anti-climax to the Riverdale game. It was
played here on November I7 against a team which
expected no easy victory, since it had done more
poorly against Riverdale than we had and wanted 'to
redeem itself if possible. For some reason, however,
perhaps because of over-confidence from the River-
dale game, our crew failed to show the drive that
had bolstered them the previous Saturday. The first
half of the game belonged to them and was gotten
underway with an early Trinity drive which resulted

in a score. Following it in the first half were two other
touchdowns against us, made from far afield by long
runs. The second half saw our own crew taking the
game into enemy territory, but repeated drives made
down as far as their 15 stalled. Thus the game Ca
definite anti-climax to the outstanding one played
against Riverdalei ended with the score 19-0, favor
The man who demonstrated the best sportsmanship
during the season was Pete Schmauss, and because
of this he was given the Bruce F. Vanderveer Mem-
orial Trophy as well as the honor of being season
Other men who filled backfield positions were Hank
Cook, our kick-off man, Al Provan, who made his
mark as a hard tackler, John Walker, a fast man
with a lot of spirit, Chuck Tagart, a good ball-hand-
ler, and Bob Slep, a man who thought fast when it
counted most. We remember John Crock as winner
of the Alumni Blocking Trophy, Jim Weaver as a
strong lineman, Dave Phail as a guy who really put
out i00'M: effort, and Gordon Brownville as a pass-
receiving specialist. Other linemen of note were Car-
ter, Keen, King, and Woodel.
Sufficient credit should be given at this time to
Mr. Johnson, head coach, and Mr. Hershey, assistant
coach. Thanks to their innovation of a new offensive
system, which employed a sliding quarterback and
split-second running in handoff and blocking plays,
the team was given a much needed "shot in the arm."
In addition we had the services of our new faculty
member, Mr. Ralph Rennard, a graduate and former
player at the University of Maryland, who coached
Jayvees and assisted with the varsity.
In retrospect it can well be said that the season
was by no means fruitless. The experience gained
was valuable, and the real results will come next
year. So here's wishing the best of success to foot-

This year for the first time we had an intramural football league. This league, com-
posed of four teams, was formed for the purpose of strengthening future jayvee and
varsity squads and intergrating more boys into the fall program of organized athletics
by giving them this opportunity to play football.

This year's twenty-man iayvee squad, comprised mostly of
Lower Classmen Ifreshmen, sophomores, and iuniorsj, was
coached by Mr. Rennard, who focused its practices on learning
basic formations and the fundamentals of football.
In the first game, with Northport, the iayvees strove to over-
come a I2-0 half-time deficit by a 102-yard touchdown run by
Chick Osborne, but Northport gained ground steadily by an
up-the-middle offensive wedge and sealed our doom, I8-6. In
the Smithtown game Stony Brook marshalled its forces against
a heavier and more experienced team to push the pigskin close
to their goal line in the second half. Repeated drives proved
futile, however, and our 21-0 recession at the half grew into a
In the return game with Northport, Stony Brook stopped the
opposition's center wedge, but a faltering pass defensive per-
mitted them three T.D.'s. The two six-pointers for us were rung
up in a third quarter drive. The St. PauI's game looked like
another stunning setback as a result of two quick scores which
the opposition made early in the first quarter. Conditions did
improve during the second half, and a 40-yard run touchdown
play was accomplished.
The midget football team, this year composed of sixteen first
and second formers, showed exceptional spirit during the season
and, by making it successful, rounded out a quartet of winning
seasons for the midgets.
The opener with Greenvale, however, yielded a sad 34-0
drubbing. Greenvale had an experienced team, while we had
begun the season with a new one, as our entire undefeated team
of 1950 had moved to the Upper School. The showing against
Friends was somewhat better, a 20-12 victory, which resulted
largely from changes in strategy and from better utilization of
players through switches in positions. At St. Paul's, deception
and speed, along with a fast-improving defensive unit, brought
home the bacon for us by an 18-6 win.
Near-disaster was averted in the return St. Paul's game Cplayed
at homel by making a successfully strong comeback against their
brand new passing offensive. The Greenvale return game, stand-
ing 26-0 at halftime, ended by a 32-26 loss, even though Stony
Brook had bounced back in the second half to chalk up twenty-
six points. Having stood up so favorably against Greenvale, we
went to Friends the next week confident of a score in our favor,
thus, the 42-21 triumph achieved there in the last game of the
season was no great surprise.

Cross country, sometimes called America's forgot-
ten sport, may be looked upon askance by the un-
enlightenedp but disciples of the sport are not daunt-
ed, especially not at Stony Brook. It is true that re-
quirements for a successful career as a harrier in-
clude strict adherence to training rules, top-flight
physical condition, a will to work, and doggedness
in covering the multiplicity of practice miles neces-
sary. Furthermore, skeptics may wonder why anyone
would choose to walk, run, or sprint distances' up to
several miles each afternoon, deprive himself Cduring
the seasonl of luxuries like piecrust and before-meal
snacks, and put up with miscellaneous maladies like
shin-splints-iust so he can be in shape to endure
two-and-a-half miles of competition in racing each
But there are compensations. In the first place,
this picture painted by the pessimists is rather ex-
aggerated. Training rules are no more rigid than for
any other demanding sport. Then there's the satis-
faction of working and racing together as a group
to bring in victory. Other obiections raised are an-
swered by the fact that the participants enjoy the
sport. Add get-togethers at Mr. Go-ldberg's house on
nights before meets, plus a break-training at the end
of the season, and you find a closely-knit, fun-loving
bunch of fellows. Most important as a fact in favor
of cross country is that success in spring track de-
pends largely on this sport run in the fall.
Cross country training under Mr. Goldberg is a
combination of the Swedish and American methods.
The Swedes favor short distances run at high speeds.
Americans prefer to train by using shorter practices
and longer distances, with the emphasis placed on
stamina rather than speed. Past records show that
our Stony Brook method of increasing both speed
and distance concurrently has worked very satis-
factorily. Thanks to our school neighbor, Mr. Forsyte,
we were allowed to use part of his farm property

this year for practices. The new course, covering a
variety of hills, slopes, and flats, was a loop of 2.2
miles without repetition over an excellent turf.
"Beat Poly" day arrived on October 6 when we
met and defeated a highly-confident Poly crew on
our own course by the almost-perfect score of 18 to
37. fThis was the fifth straight victory against the
A perfect 15-40 in favor of Stony Brook was
achieved the next Saturday afternoon, October 12,
when we successfully overcame Horace Mann at New
York City's Van Cortland Park, a top-notch cross
country course and scene of many collegiate meets.
But it was Riverhead who said, "Veni, vidi, vici"
when they stung us with defeat on the succeeding
Wednesday. Remembering how the 32-23 tumble
suffered last year at their hands had shattered our
four-year, twenty-three meet record, we looked for-
ward to and worked for this meet above all others.
Their entire varsity of last year was back, and on
our own course they gave us that "most unkindest
cut": defeat by the same score as last year 23-32.
Westbury was a different story. Eight Brookers
crossed the finish line before their first: another 15-
clear October 31 on the superb turf of the golf links

at Bethpage State Park, saw us again emerge the
victor. This time victory was eked out by a score

Acadmey at Oakdale. Not knowing what to expect
from them made the meet a sort of "pig in a poke,"

Then came the Ivy League Meet, also run at Van
Cortlandt. Beck, Camp, Andy Carlson, Csehy, Daven-
port, Osuna, and Woodmansee, went out to bring in
a very satisfactory and welcomed victory of 21 points,
compared to the respective scores of 51, 75, and 75
chalked up by Poly, Horace Mann, and Trinity. For
the third straight year, we had won the Ivy League
Cup. "Slim Jim" Osuna distinguished himself in this
race by placing first, Beck and Davenport tied for
Having sounded out Trinity in the lvy League com-
petition, we expected and received only a minimum
of competition from that quarter when matched
against them between halves of the Trinity-Stony
Brook football game. Another l5f4O triumph con-
firmed this belief and completed the trio of perfect
scores made during the season.
One of the first considerations in giving individual
credit for good work during the season is to recog-
nize the remarkable progress made and running done
by Osuna. Davenport, winner of the Forty-Nine Tro-
phy and captain of the team, furnished constant en-
couragement and spirit to the squad. Gordon Beck,
a new senior, formed along with Karl Woodmansee
another strong vertebra in our cross country spine.
Varsity men for the season were Beck, Camp, Andy

"Performance to a T."
From the start of the basketball season we had
game-in fact we had lost fourteen straight in a row, and then
on March l we lost game No. l5 when St. Paul's took it by a
hair in an overtime period. Immediately following that period
Dr. Gaebelein made a remark which pretty well sums up basket-
ball, '52: "Even though this has been a losing season, this team
will go down in Stony Brook history as one of the great teams
because of its spirit and the way it overcame itself by surmount-
not won a
The team had indeed shown remarkable improvement during
the season. Evidence of this and the grounds for expectations for
next year can be gleaned by simply comparing scores taken
from both cycles of this year's tough lvy League schedule: River-
dale beat us the first time by 'I9 points, the second time by 5,
Poly took us the first time by l9 points, the second time by 9,
St. Paul's licked us first by 21 points, the second time by only l.
In size the squad this year was below average, and it was com
' ' l t ar and other
posed mainly of the gayvees coming up from as ye
material coming in as new seniors.
In the first game of the season Smithtown lwhich already had
five games under its beltj gave us a modest drubbing, 49-35.
The next two games, Riverdale and South Huntington, saw us
playing below par and losing by wide margins. Between these
two was the alumni game, always looked forward to and usually
victorious for the varsity. On January 12 we were subdued finally

Nor was the St. Paul's game, in which we hit iust about our
lowest stride during the season, much better
When Horace Mann, champion of the lvy League, was met
here on January 25, half our points were caged in the first
quarter, but that smooth-rolling outfit finally licked us 52-25.
With Trinity we lost again, but not quite so painfully, and the
Adelphi game was a spirited, close fight with Stony Brook
almost closing the gap. Our second game with Horace Mann
was an improvement over the first, though Cutlow's thirty points
did not exactly help Stony Brook. Friends was the worst rout
of the whole season, caused partly by an absence of players be-
cause of sickness and partly because of poor effort by the rest.
The Columbia Grammar game was one that we should have
taken, but somehow we failed to click. In the second Poly game
the Bruins were behind by twenty points at the half, but we were
edged out at the close by only nine. However, Riverdale, played
here on February 27, was one game in which we weren't over-
run: the score was tied at the three-quarter mark, and though
we eventually lost, it was only by five points.
Certainly the highlight of the season was the return game with
St. Paul's. The scores stayed parallel and the game ended in a
tie, then in the three-minute overtime Stony Brook broke ahead
and was leading up until literally the last second, when a lay-up
by Bruns of St. Paul's dropped through the hoop as the buz-
zer sounded. Huntington's team was rather weak, and no-
body got excited when it was beaten the next week. The small
court at Trinity bamboozled us into losing that contest, so we
finished out h ' '
our sc eduled games with sixteen losses against
one consoling triumph.

Though the fellows showed marked improvement
as the season progressed, as we size it up, jayvee
basketball was about middle-of-the-road. The team
itself was neither remarkable good nor especially
poor: and its season was 50-50 with four wins, four
losses. Some members were playing interscholastic
ball for the first time, furthermore, a few freshmen
were taken on in order to give them experience right
in the beginning of their high school careers, since
the idea of iayvee basketball, as in all iayvee sports,
it to expose the boys to formal game conditions, to
render experience, and to impart the fundamentals.
Though the team was beaten by Smithtown in the
first game, its promise showed through nevertheless.
St. Paul's was the best game, and that with River-
head was lost only in the closing seconds of play.
Trinity was easily overcome, but experienced Adelphi
turned the tables and took us to town. In the second
St. Paul's game we pulled out of a deadlock to win
during the last few minutes, and Central Presbyterian,
just like Riverhead, succeeded in beating us just as
time was running out.
Coach Rennard and Capt. Ingles
The Midgets fielded a green team this year and
put up good fights to win their games, but their
enthusiasm was matched inversely by a lack of basic
skills: set shooting, driving through the center, and
lay-ups. Team weakness was shown most clearly in
the second St. Paul's game, in which the loss of sev-
eral firfst-stringers spotlighted the lack of confidence
present in other members. But the Northport game
showed what could be done when the team candidly
probed its weak points and made needed corrections.
On the squad this year were several hard-working
first formers who fortunately will be returning next
skills like dribbling, guarding, passing, and follow-
ing throughp and the boys seemed to play better
toward the close of the season than at the beginning
fthough spirit remained high all alongi. For this
reason optimism in regard to next year's prospects
is quite well-grounded.
Perhaps the high point of the season was the
Greenvale game, where the teams stayed nip and
tuck throughout the first three periods, but toward
the end our replacement-short crew of seven finally
weakened and lost 37-26.

Uncler the coaching of Mr.
Coombs, who has quite competent-
ly handled this job for the past
three years, this year's wrestling
team, numbering about thirty fel-
lows, was the largest since 1942
and the best since we won the
Suftollc County championship in
1938. Having an unusually large
number on the squad strengthened
it considerably by allowing more
competition among the members,
something we were short on last
year. Simon, Dick Wardell, and

learning fundamentals and gaining

Qboth physical and mentalj, and
the demand for good physical con-
dition is especially strong. For wrest-
ling too there is, sad to say, a fly

automatically. The three basic holds
Qswitch, shanker, and rollj along
with their variations and counters
comprise fundamentals, and a new
one is learned daily, since it is said
that "a hold a day keeps a pin
away." Altogether nearly fifty holds are to be
learned, including take-downs, get-behinds, reverses,
escapes, and pins. Added to the emphasis placed on
learning holds is that on aggressiveness, something
which was stressed throughout the season and which
offsets doing too much defensive work in competition.
Every wrestling match starts as the two contestants
prance into the arena, a 20' 20' canvas, exuding
confidence. After the petty preliminaries of last-
minute warmups and instructions by the referee, the
men shake hands, move to opposite corners, and wait
for the buzzer. It sounds, time for warfare has come.
Each then leaps forward and in lynx-like movements
of half-stalk, half-crouch approaches the other: ex-
pressions are wary, brows are menacing, and arms
swing loosely in chimp-like fashion. They gyrate about
the mat center, eyes peeled to spot a sudden attack
or an opening. A few swings to sound out the opposi-
tion are made and parried. Then a sudden lunge or
take-down opens the battle royal.
From then on the affair-best likened to a Gren-
del-Beowulf encounter-is carried on in earnest as
the pretzel men go through all varieties of grappling,
tugging, twisting, and general contortions. Matches,
which last for three two-minute periods, are six min-
utes long, and victory comes by scoring a pin C5
pointsl or by gaining a decision C3 pointsj.
On December 7 Bay Shore, consistently one of our
stronger opponents, handed us a 33-ll squelch in
our first match of the season. Following, with Linden-
hurst, we were behind most of the way, but tri-
umphed when the Lindy men faltered in the heavier
weights. Then, on January 18, a sad day arrived for
South Huntington: we proceeded to get seven pins
almost consecutively and the final score stood 45-3,
favor of Coombs and Co. Huntington, which was on
the same order, might have yielded a perfect score
had not several of our men been "infirmerized" at the
time. On January 26 a cagey and notably aggressive
Riverhead really fixed our wagon by marching head-
on to a 37-8 victory-something of a change for us,
Having sized up South Huntington in the first meet,
we used mostly second-stringers the second time and
won by a comfortable 23-15. On February 9 Hack-
ley was also easily overcome, and by a 15 point mar-
gin at that. But Poly, aggressive and very experi-
enced, proved keen opposition for sure and snatched
the laurel from our brows in the last twenty-five sec-
onds of the match to win 23-22. ln our return en-
gagement with Huntington we used our second team,
but nevertheless we succeeded in effecting a 21-21
Most of the men representing Stony Brook on Feb-
ruary 27 at the Suffolk County Tournment won their
first matches, but all were eliminated in the semi-
finals, with the exception of King, who received a
medal as county runner-up. Amityville, like Riverhead,
was the case of a plenty savy crew coming on to
vanquish us steadily one by one. Trinity, however,
was plainly a climaxing bout: our 26-13 win there
indicated nothing of how close it was, as we were
ahead next to the last match by only ci scant 16-13.

Baseball's embryonic state at the date of this early
writing makes it hard to render predictions or to pre-
construct much of the season. But with not proclivity
to pessimism, we must nevertheless say that prospects
look weak: only two lettermen are returning and ex-
perienced men are few fthough some iayvees from
last year have moved upl.
Baseball, however, always seems to come at the
right time of year to provide an outlet from indoor
basketball and wrestling, and lacking the pressure
of most other sports, it remains one played largely
for the sake of enioyment. The rather copious slate
of fourteen scheduled games is based on the idea
that the more games played, the better we get, and

Track calendar starts this year with our April 'I7th
meet, by which track rivalry with St. Paul's will be
reopened. On April 25 the four-man mile-relay team
fdrawn from candidates Brownville G., Carroll, Os-
borne, Osuna, Tagart, and Walkeri goes to the Penn
Relays at Philadelphia. Stony Brook has copped the
bronze plaque in its mile relay event twice in the past
three years at the Relays, which feature, incidentally,
the largest roster ot competing athletes 13500 this
yearl outside the Olympics.
On April 26 Stony Brook vies with six other prep
schools at Trinity-Pawling tor the Trinity Invitation
silver cup, which we have won twice straight already
and which will belong permanently to any school
winning it three times. The most anticipated meet
and the high point of the season, the Ivy League
championship, presents our biggest challenge with
undefeated Poly trying for its seventh consecutive
And Poly, never beaten on our track, is much
awaited tor the duel meet here on May 'l0. Though
in past seasons we have never nipped Poly in the
Ivy League, we have done so iust a week later in
duel matches. In the three closing meets of the sched-
ule the Blue and Whites face Riverhead, La Salle,
and Hackley, all three having strong teams and sure
to spell close-decision encounters.
What new heights will he not attain?

The Student Organization's chief function is to handle student
problems, to mediate in disciplinary cases, and to co-ordinate
student activities. With its elected faculty advisor, executive coun-
cil, and advisory committee, the organization, by offering the
chance to discuss matters officially with the administration, serves
as a sort of intermediary between the administration and the
general student body. The aim of the organization this year fin
contrast to past years when physical improvements were sought
forl has been to fulfill our responsibility to those moving up
through our ranks in succeeding years and to make the School
even better for them, by upholding and strengthening the spirit-
ual values for which Stony Brook stands-namely, that both our
lives and our behavior be patterned after the Lord Jesus Christ.
"So noble and so fair assembly."

At least two things are true of every year-
book: it affords a keyhole, figuratively, for
parents and others who are unable to view
school life firsthand, and it reflects the senior
class producing it. RES GESTAE 1952 was be-
gun in the fall of 1950 when editors were
elected from the junior class in order that they
might learn something about the business of
putting out a yearbook from the senior staff
during the year. That spring our yearbook ad-
viser, Mr. Pedrick, was chosen, and during the
summer Ron Partnoy worked on plans and
preparations, while the campaign for ads was
gotten underway this past fall. As the seniors
present this book, they hope that its scope and
perspective in words and in pictures will por-
tray Stony Brook School to you.

After a good initial boost from the faculty at
the beginning of the year, this year's Blue and
White staff went on to do a very creditable
job of publishing School news in their bi-week-
ly, three-page editions. The staff, having good
co-operation from the very first, has done all
the necessary reporting, editing, rewriting, typ-
ing, stenciling, and mimeographing themselves,
since it has been found that to mimeograph
the paper here on the campus makes fresh
news possible, and permits "extras" to be got-
ten out after important sports and entertain-
ment events. Our goal, however, is to print

has helped during the past few years to
develop several excellent artists among our

drawings are charcoals done from casts and
still life, though Dave Brownville and Sammy

The electrical equipment of the campus--tape recorders, slide
proiectors, and movie proiectors-is run by the Audio-Visual Club,
which has sponsored the educational films shown now and then
in the gym after supper, has set up loudspeakers at our football
games, and has run reels of a religious nature for the Sunday
evening chapel services. Among themselves the members repair
radios in the physics lab, learn something of electronics, and
tinker with appliances such as field telephones or voice oscillators.
The Photography Club, virtually a new organization this year
with an enthusiastic nucleus of members, was faced from the
very start with the problem of securing a darkroom from some
otherwise unused room on the campus that had both running
water' and electricity in it. While this difficulty was being worked
on they continued to conduct meetings in which the members
of the Club took turns explaining various new methods of photog-
raphy and gave reports on new camera and darkroom equip-
ment. Club members were particularly brought to our attention
during the winter season when flash bulbs popped at basket-
ball games and wrestling matches. One member, Bill O'Rourke,
who is no mean photographer, has been especially helpful to

Sponsored by RES GESTAE, the Faculty-Student basketball
game which was played on March 7 was one of this year's high-
lights on the lighter side. This event had been looked forward
to for several weeks by the student body, and visitors were also
invited from outside. Jim Weaver, replete in tux and bowler,
inaugurated the frolic by introducing the faculty members Ceach
garbed in outlandish costumes and equipped with crutches, band-
ages, etc.J, as they entered separately under the spotlight. After
the refs, John Walker and Mr. Goldberg Cboth blindfolded and
carrying canesl, were ushered in, the members of the student
team, mainly captains of Class Basketball, were introduced. A
preliminary match between a picked second form squad and the
faculty followed, after which les professeurs were taken on by
the student team proper.
The faculty compensated for their understandable lack of
practice and the possession of rhore mature years by strategy,
determination, and some mighty creditable playing. Halt-time
score was 23-15. Intermission featured a weight-lifting contest
between Copeland, Provan, and King fthe winnerl. The second
half of the game, snappy as the first, saw Mr. Fenton, who had
been "disabled", carried off by a stretcher crew. He soon re-
joined his cohorts, however, and the faculty strode on to triumph.
"The hungry must now be fed upon."
Contrary to anything you might have heard, this
year's senior party provided a departure from the
usual run-of-the-mill extravaganzas put on by previ-
ous senior classes in coniunction with their class ad-
visor and the Mothers' Club. Produced fairly early in
the fall term, this fete began with a candlelight din-
ner served at the Community House in Setauket, after
which a professional entertainer proceeded to dis-
play his talents at humor, parlor tricks, and other
various and sundry devices designed to capture and
maintain the interest and enthusiasm of those present.
Next came some attempts on the part of seniors and
their dates to demonstrate their skill at the ping-pong
and pool tables, but from then on it was every man
The next morning the general topic of conversation
was what happened to whom and why.
The senior class wishes to extend its appreciation
to the Mothers' Club for their ettorts in this venture.

sentation vvas made by Henry G. Perry, Executive

AMERICAN TRAET SOCIETY
the one book of which we can use, with full as-
surance, the word 'industructiblef Because its mes-
