43,-gfgig Sim was born in Morgan County, VX est Virginia on Feb.
15, 1849. At the early age of nineteen he graduated from the College
of the City of New York, and two years later became a tutor in
mathematics. He served in this capacity for twenty years in both the
Cooper Union Techanical School and in the Harlem Evening High
During all these years he had been applying himself conscientiously
to the study of his chosen profession. As a recompense he was
awarded successive promotions to instructor and assistant-professor
Finally, in 1901, he was appointed Professor in charge of the
Academic Department of the College of the City of New York. lt is
in this position that we find him now, devoting himself to the interests
of Townsend Hall. All who have come in contact with Prof. Sim
have experienced the kindness that tempers his actions, The relations
of principal and student usually so formal have been made pleasant
and amiable. Moreover, Prof. Sim has aided the students in their
activities in every available manner.
In 1904 he attained the acme of his success when he was appointed
Professor of Pure Mathematics. He is a member of various notable
organizations, among which are the New York Gamma of Phi Beta
Kappa, the Virginia Historical Association and the Southern Society
of New York.
Accurate in his actions, sincere in his desire to promote a feeling
of fraternity and friendship, he stands the beloved and revered leader
of Townsend Harris Hall.
PROFESSOR HOLLAND THOMPSON
PROFESSOR HOLLAND THOMPSON
SSISTANT PROFESSOR HOLLAND THOMPSON, Director of
the Townsend Harris Hall Annex, was born in North Carolina and
was graduated from the State University in l895. For the next four
years he was principal of the Academy at Concord, N. C. In 1899
f-S4944 he resigned on receiving an appointment as University Fellow in
Columbia University, New York City, from which institution he later received
the degrees of Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy. He was appointed
Tutor in History in the College of the City of New York in l90l, Instructor in
1902, and Assistant Professor in 1906.
XVhen the number of students applying for admission to the Preparatory De-
partment, as it was then called, grew beyond the accomodations provided for them,
Mr. Thompson was placed in charge of the Afternoon Session in the old Cass
Building in Twenty-third Street in 1904. The next year he was assigned to the
charge of Townsend Harris Hall, which was not yet completed, but was finished
around the classes. In l906-O7 the Main Building was rendered habitable though
far from completed and Professor Thompson was placed in charge of the A
and B classes which recited there. The College proper removed to the new site
in the fall of l907 and Professor Thompson was then placed in charge of the
old building in Twenty-third Street, where he remained five years. When the
building was closed preparatory to the construction of the new School of Commerce
on that site, the classes attending were transferred to 138th Street.
Professor Thompson has found time to do much literary and scholarly work.
He is author of "From Cotton Field to Cotton Mill," f'The Prisoners of the
Civil lfVar," "History of Our Land," and the "New South, Economic and Social,"
besides many magazine articles. He contributed to the New International and
Nelson's Encyclopaedias and to the Encyclopaedia Britannica and is joint editor of
the "Book of Knowledge." He has served on the editorial staff of "Current Litera-
ture" and "Review of Reviews" and is now engaged on a work on Southern
Professor Thompson is a member of Phi Beta Kappa, of the Academy of
Political Science, of the American Historical Association and of the American
In this article it is extremely difficult to give to Professor Thompson the credit
which he so rightfully deserves. In his years of service at the college it has been
his wish and desire to perfect the education of the student. Professor Thompson
has succeeded wonderfully and is continuing the good work which he has so
earnestly chosen as his life's mission. Professor Thompson is held in such high
esteem by his colleagues and the students who come under his care that it is doubt-
ful whether any other man could so gain the love and confidence of his associates,
both young and old. To conclude we may say with assurance that it would be
a wise and prudent act on the part of the young student who is just beginning
life, to set the career of Professor Thompson before him, and to follow it faithfully

publicly acknowledged when the first new college building
to be erected received the name of Townsend Harris Hall.
The third day of October, 1804, brought forward a man
destined to be a potent factor in the advancement of public education
and an eminent statesman in the diplomatic field. This man was
Townsend Harris. Reared in a simple family at Sandy Hill in Vilash-
ington County, N. I., Townsend Harris was imbued with all the
decent, honest and home-like qualities of a country youth. Until he
reached the age of thirteen years he was influenced and guided by
the prudent and sagacious teachings of his dearly beloved mother,
whose word was his Gospel.
An ordinary public school training was the only formal education
Townsend Harris ever received. Although he never entered a uni-
versity, he fully acquainted himself with the Romance Languages and
gained a substantial knowledge of wholesome, instructive literature.
This learning he acquired, unaided, by determined effort during
spare hours in his commercial life.
In 1817, Townsend Harris, just in his teens, but with all the ambi-
tion and grit of a lighter, settled in New York City to carve out his
career. Little did he realize then how important a personage he
would be to two of the great powers of the world to-day. For several
years after he reached New York, Townsend worked conscientiously
in the employ of a friend of his father's and gained a thorough knowl-
edge of the dry goods trade. Thus he acquired the necessary experi-
ence and the fundamental training in business to enable him to enter
into partnership a few years later with his own father and brother.
The new business in which Harris engaged was of a somewhat
different nature from his former commercial experience. The Harris
family had invested its fortune in an importing concern. Its principal
products, china and earthenware, were imported from the East, a
commerce which later resulted in Mr. Harris' voyage to Japan.
VVhile he was thus engaged in business, he gained prominence
through election to the Board of Education. The following year,
1847, he was elected president of that body. In all the years of his
l6 THE HARRIS ANNUAL
sojourn in New York, Mr. Harris contemplated founding a free
academy for boys. His perseverance and untiring efforts were truly
On Mr. Harris' motion, a committee was appointed july 27, l846,
to report upon a plan for the academy. This took definite shape
under a legislative act of May 7, 1847. Finally the people of New
York in the school and judicial election of june, l847, voted to estab-
lish the present institution, which was at first called the 4'New York
About this time the mother of Mr. Harris died, and he, being a
bachelor, left New York for San Francisco, where he purchased a
half interest in a trading vessel bound for the East Indies. Meeting
with continued success, Mr. Harris finally bought the entire stock of
the trading company, and commenced his premeditated voyage around
the world and back to New York, via the Orient.
He reached his destination in 1855, at a time when the United States
government sought closer connections with the East. Because of his
thorough knowledge of the customs and civilization of the Eastern
peoples, and owing to the influence of Secretary of State Marcy, a
personal friend, Mr. Harris was commissioned by the Federal Gov-
ernment to act as Consul General to japan. NVe have already men-
tioned how intimately he entered into the earliest American relations
with japan. His humanitarian ideals, his combined legislative, ju-
dicial, and executive ability, and his advocacy of commercial friend-
ship were genuine factors in the advancement and progress of the
Japanese Empire, and helped to lift japan to a prominent position
among the nations of the world, by serving as a powerful stimulant
in the development of Japan's commerce.
Fully satisfied and convinced that he had faithfully and successfully
executed his duty as Consul General, Mr. Harris returned to the
United States during the Civil VVar. A Unionist at heart and in
mind, he cordially approved of the action of the North. One of the
most picturesque moments in the life of Mr. Harris occurred when
he paid a public tribute to General U. S. Grant, to whom he presented
on this occasion an exquisite japanese sword. In this and in many
other ways, Mr. Harris acquired wide recognition for his private and
public services. His devotion particularly to the cause of free public
education has made him so conspicuous a Hgure in the history of
New York that the college is proud to have his name engraved over
the portals of Townsend Harris Hall.

X yi the Board of Editors seeks to place before the students a
,complete though brief edition of the history of the school,
Yljlkgy resume of the past year's activities, and an account of the
-iclass of June, 1914.
XYe hope our attempts will not be in vain. Our object is to present
a book worthy of the name "Harris" It is a work comprising the
entire system of Townsend Harris organizations and Townsend Harris
ideals. It is representative of our pride and our ambitions.
Despite the fact that our enthusiasm over this project is great, we
cannot rely on the success of the Annual, unless we are assured of
the combined support and loyalty of the entire student body of
Townsend Harris Hall. A substantial evidence of approval and
satisfaction on the part of the students will tend to make the Annual
a complete success in future years.
XYe greatly appreciate the kindness of Prof. XVerner, Prof. Sim and
Prof. Thompson in granting us permission to publish the Townsend

Tynan and Mr. Hayes, the Board of Editors is greatly indebted for
their individual and collective assistance in helping to make this first
issue of the Townsend Harris Hall Annual a success. To them we
offer our sincere thanks. To those of the lower classes who have
so willingly aided us by contributing material for this publication, the
Board expresses its hearty appreciation.
VVith the hope that our work may be an inspiration to the many
loyal sons of Townsend Harris Hall in the future we, the Board of
Editors, take pleasure in submitting to our fellow students the hrst

HISTORY OF TOWNSEND HARRIS HALL
, : urn N 138th Street, fronting Amsterdam Avenue, flanked on one side
X-f-RX by the sand-piled, rock-studded fields of the future stadium, on
Xi,-7-X on the 'rear the historic Campus of the college with its stone
S lg' benches and its enormous flagpole, stands a building, one of a
whole group, called Townsend Harris Hall. The building is in the English-
Gotliic style, massive and impressive, yet leaving room for an intricacy of
Terra Cotta ornamentation, on the natural greystone ground peculiar to this
style alone. There are the gargoyled entrances, the almost monastic pannelling
on the doors, the white-trimmed edges with outcroppings of fantastic figures.
girdling the entire edifice. No one can deny that in conjunction with the
other City College Buildings it is one of the City's art treasures. Its location
commands here the silvering expanse of the Hudson, there a cluster of mist-
enshrouded houses, and seems to isolate it from the rest of the city, with only
the hum of the street cars, and only the insistence of grey steeples and spires
and slender factory chimneys, spiralling smoke from invisible mouths, to
remind it of the city and that it is one of the petals on the Hfiower of the
city's educational system, City College."

No one, I presume, has read a biography without some mention of the liero's
parentage, a history without a preface of prehistoric life, a story without a
mass of antecedents. Townsend I-Iarris.I-Iall is peculiarly prolific in its ante-
cedents. It grew out of the City College. lt is one of the City College
buildings: substantially it is only a link in the chain of The City College
education. Townsend Harris Hall cannot have a separate history. Its history
must, therefore, begin with a summary of The City College history.
In the sixty-seven years of its existence, the City College has known no
more notable year than that of l907. The old buildings on Twenty-third street
with their gloomy interior and their distracting outlook upon one of the busiest
thoroughfares in the city, were abandoned for the new buildings on Vxfashing-
ton Heights. The College became practically a new college. New and mag-
nificent quarters produced a regeneration that the City College was little
aware of. It was an unconscious refreshening. There was infused a new
and nobler spirit in the student body, a new student consciousness.

T. H. H. shared in everything. One of the handsomest of the new buildings
was devoted to it. As for T. H. H. the changes were crystallized in a name.
The name chosen for the school by a happy choice rested on Townsend
Harris. No name could be more appropriate. As an educator noted
for his ambitions and ideals, as a public servant famed for his integrity and
broad-mindedness, finally as one of the founders of City College, he is
peculiarly acceptable to the School and what it aims for. He has become an
ideal for T. H. H. Studentsg his actions have become precedents.
The prototype of T. H. H. was the Sub-Freshman Class, a one-year course
that prepared students for entrance into college. In 1901 it was extended to
two years and a year later it had grown to its present proportions. In 1905
T. H. H. opened under Professor H. Thompson. In 1906-07 Prof. Sim took
charge, while Professor Thompson had sections in the main buliding of
C. C. N. Y. The college moved to its present home in 1907. Prof. Sim took
charge in the present T. H. H., while Professor Thompson moved again back
to the Twenty-third Street building. Previous to 1907, T. H. H. occupied
quarters in the Cass Building, 23rd Street, between Znd and 3rd Ave., a building now
devoted to the technical training of girls, under the name of Manhattan
Trade School for Girls.
The T. H. H. thus established in 1907 met with an immediate and widespread
approbation. The number of students who applied for admission was so
large that, had not the precautions been taken of providing an annex for the
surplus, there might have arisen insurmountable difficulties. Students living
on the VVest Side above 100th Street, and on the East Side, 110th Street,
went to T. H. H. uptown, the others to the Annex.
The annex was the old City College building, on 23d and 22d Streets and
Lexington Avenue. Only one who has been an Annex man, who has heard
the echo on its sepulchrally hollow walls, who has paced its gloomy corridors
with their dusty pictures and mustier trophies, who has tread its creaky
staircases, with a heart-beat for every foot-fall, can know the esoteric secret
of it. Outside was the world, the clangorous tolling in a hundred towers, the
screaming from a hundred ferry-boats, the wrangling of the car with its own
tracks, the shouts and rumblings that make up the audible world, inside
there was the droning of study and the fusty mustiness that make study
studious, and the inscrutable silence of it all. I remember passing from the
recitation building of 22d Street to the office building on 23d Street over the
strip of yard with its bare fences that separated them, to settle the petty
delinquencies that are the spice of the student's life. And I remember the
lingering over the old pictures and old banners, that seemed to bind a for-
gotten world in their cob-webbed being, the sobriety and aesthetic gloominess
that flickered in with the dim light through the windows. I was always
impressed and constant familiarity did not diminish the awe in which I
The old building is down and, in a manner, what I have written is a requiem
for it, and a memorial for the memories that went down with it. On the site,
a College of Commerce, the plans of which are on file, in most respects a
department of City College with another calling, is to stand.
Prom that point on everybody is familiar with the T. H. H. history. Clubs
rose and fell, teams developed a transient brilliancy and fell to a self-extinction.
Upper A classes with their pother of dances and class days came and went,
the ordinary course of a high school being modified to a strange environment
and strange circumstancesg it is for me now only to make a few remarks
on the activities of the school as they were manifested in the literature, the
athletics and the society work.
The literary history of the school may be comprehended in the one name-
Academic Herald. Outside of the Tatler, a short-lived weekly, that existed
but a very few issues during 1912, nothing has appeared to challenge the one
monthly magazine. The Academic Herald was first published in 1907. lt
commenced as a magazine similar to the City College Mercury, but ended in
l9lZ as a full-Hedged high school periodical. Since then it has grown from
a drab little magazine of l6 pages, commanding a circulation of 500 to an
active virile paper of 32 pages, commanding a banner circulation of 2,000 or
more. Practically everything was doubled except the price. That, as an
important factor in the literary attainment of the school, remained the same.
a convention that alone of the T. H. H. conventions stands in no fear of
Until the Advent of the Quill Club, the Academic Herald drew its editors
from the VVebb Literary Society. This society was the fountain of the Academic
Herald staff. A word of praise to the society itself, its attitude towards the
school, its aid to the school, and a word of dispraise to the school that did not
support it, is all that need be added. lt was a severe blow to hear that the
NVebb Literary Society had disbanded. Since then the Quill Club has been
slowly taking up the work which the VVebb relinquished. Its members are
very well represented on the present "Ac" staff.
VVhat the Quill Club does in the way of literature, the Art Society does in
the way of art. All the Academic Herald artists may be seen, congregated
in the society's room every Friday over oblong drawing sheets, chewing char-
coal stubbs, with a true Bohemian abandon. So much for the school's
Just asithe two other societies represented the school in literature and art,
so the Harris Debating Society represents Harris in the oratorical world.
The Athletic activities of T. H. H. should properly center about the A. A.
The A. A. is the strongest student activity in the school. lt is the power that
sets up our teams and snatches us from an athletic oblivion. The athletic
history of T. H. H., thanks to the unrelenting and rigorous curriculum system
in force, presents no glory save vain-glory. Properly we should delve into
the annals of Clinton H. S. for the history of T. H. H. Athletics. Clinton
victories over Harris itself were due to Harris ex-members. In l9ll, T. H. H.
won the Manhattan soccer championship. Since then the Soccer Teams of Harris
were always so near, and yet so far away from the championship. The basketball
teams always plunged into a rose bed at the beginning and then, when the
P. S. A. L. games were scheduled, slid back ungracefully into an inferior
position. So with the baseball teams. But it is surprising that under the
conditions in Harris any records were made at all. The swimming team has
shown itself invariably a good representative of Harris Amphibians. The
wrestling team has always been victorious. That of all the other teams has reflected
50 THE HARRIS ANNUAL
some of the glories of Harris in the interscholastic athletic mirror. Periodically
tennis teams and chess teams are raised up from the dust of a comparative obscurity,
but they go down to the same perennial dissolution with a disappointing regularity.
Perhaps it would be best to revert to the gymnasium the scene of T. H. H.
basketball victories and to the natatorium the scene of swimming victories
and defeats. The gym is formally called the C. C. N. Y. gymnasium. It
might with equal justice be called the T. H. H. Gym. Here T. H. H. came,
saw and occasionally was conquered. But, passing over this, the gym is
one of the greatest athletic structures in the city. Equipped with one of the
largest swimming pools in the city, with one of the best running tracks, boast-
ing of the most complete athletic apparatus in the city, preserving in its
management a wise and discriminative course, it has become one of the real
factors in the athletic development of the school. The gym is something so
fine that praise can only be a disparagement. As a building it combines with
the necessary structural forms of a gymnasium, all the distinctive architectural
features of the City College group of buildings.
The pool in its white-tiled dignity, in the gloom of the corridors leading
to it, in the soft splashing of a stray swimmer, in the gentle rippling of the
water on the smooth sides, seems to have the typical atmosphere of the school.
The running tracks, the hand-ball courts, the stacks of dumbbells, Indian
clubs, and the wands seem like sentinel to the esoteric athletic spirit of Harris
Hall. Here are bound up this school's athletic traditions in a knot which
can never be dissevered. It is one of the academy's influences for good.
Another influence which promises to be just as important is the stadium.
All that there is of the stadium now is the blueprints, but work is being
pushed on, and in the Fall season there will be a new amphitheatre for T. H. H.
athletics. The stadium, according to the plaster-of-paris cast in the Lincoln
Corridor of the College, is to be simple in its structure, a Fine example of the
majestic beauty of Doric architecture. It is to extend from 138th Street to
136th Street and east from Amsterdam Avenue to Convent Avenue. The field,
therefore, will be very large, and there will be room for almost every activity.
The original plan did not provide for shower baths and lockers. In the same
breath, it neglected a fence about the held. Active work was entered upon
by some wide-awake college men who circulated a petition that was signed
by several thousand students. As a result, a bill of appropriation has been
passed to provide showers and lockers for the stadium.
The social activities of the school are not many, but are widely diversified.
The diversity approaches very nearly to chaos. There is no cohesion, no cen-
tral activity. The clubs are self-centered. They can realize nothing but their
own petty necessities, and they provide for nothing but their own individual
interests. The announcement that a General Organization was being planned
was greeted with joy by sincere Harrisites, the subsequent abandonment of
the plan, the slacking of the first ardor, the gradual loss of all interest in the
project of all enthusiasm, the tacit admission that T. H. H. was not yet ready
for it, the spectacle of virile clubs retrograding because the school was not
yet ready for it, was greeted with corresponding sorrow.
There is nothing left to do but to end, and yet that is so hard when one
knows that soon the very name of T. H. H. will only serve to bring back
memories, fond memories of days spent and enjoyed in the institution. The
desire to close with a tribute to the school that farmed one, fashioned three
of the best years of his life, is strong upon me. But the realization of my
incapacity is equally as strong. It is with a trembling pen and shuddering lip
that I invoke the name of the graduating class.
In the name of the graduating class, that is no longer to be a part of you, that
remained under your care--your Alma-lllatronly care for three years-that owes
all it ran boast to your training and development, that will owe all that it will ever
lvoast of in the future to the bias you gave it, that can remember you, your dear
halls, the corridors that will be filled for it with the romance of fond uicniories,
only with thazzksgizing, tempered with regrets, I close this history of you-Oh my
School. With the hope that your succeeding history will be just as glorious, that
your station among the schools will be just as high, if not higher, and that future
classes will regard you just as dearly, with just as much tenderness on leaving you
as the Upper fl Class of June, 1914.
TO ALMA MATER
XVe come, we go. Our life is spanned
By sonorous throbbings in a tower,
By numbers drawing hour from hour
The index of the clock's black hand.
Three years. And yet a day ago,
It seems we entered through this door,
Life's crucible and we the ore,
And never is Time, the goldsmith, slow.
Three years. Three chapters of a dream,
A memory to a memory stirred,
A dream-shaped treasure in a word.
So short, but yesterdays they seem.
Where are the thorn-wreath's on Time's
Where are the shrunken cheeks and
Time is a smile and not a sigh
The mist between the then and now.
The then of fearg the now of hope.
The always of our love to thee,
The always of our love to be,
Recalled in Time's Kaleidoscope.
We come, we go. Oh that our life,
The perfect fruit of a pefect earth,
Here nourished to a new rebirth,
M,ight turn thy training to its strife.
And to the world of men bequeath
Another hero born of fame,
To history, another name.
To awe another life to breathe.
We come, we gog and when the day
That waits upon a term to close,
Shall put upon its sky a rose,
The spell of parting wastes away.
That day has come and we must go.
We face no pigmy worlds, that truth
Had conquered for us in our youth.
The worlds are great and we are low
Oh Alma Mater we must: part,
What if the parting is a spell
That witchery has woven well
Around the shreddings of a heart?
We gog but 'tis not to forget
Oh Alma Mater, so each tower,
Each golden image of this hour
Shall hold our memories in debt.

THE VOICE OF THE VIOLIN
Sz MIDST the confusing noises and shouts that pealed forth
Q from the massive tenement houses whose tops were crim-
soned by the fading rays of the November sun there were
lggsyx heard the sad and melodious tunes of a violin. The brisk
and chilly autumn wind took up the sweet notes and spread
them through the yard in which the player stood. He was a gray-
haired, wretchedly clad beggar, and as his sweet, pathetic strains
filled the narrow inclosure, the discordant voices around were grad-
About him was gathered a crowd of eager-faced, bright-eyed chil-
dren, listening attentively to the music. The sight of his ardent
auditors seemed to move the old man, for two pearly tears rolled
down his meagre, wrinkled cheeks and were lost in his long gray
beard. The golden hair, untroubled blue eyes, and innocent smiles
of the youngsters seemed to recall to his mind scenes very dear, very
near and very holy to him. Meanwhile, in response to its masterls
emotions, the violin expanded its sweet, gentle tunes into a wonderful
lt was soul-stirring music! The passionate tunes spoke of the life
of the old beggar, of his joys and sorrows, of his hopes and disap-
pointments. It told how, many years ago, during his childhood days,
far away in likaterineslov, in the southern part of Russia, he resolved
to achieve happiness and success. It recorded vividly the happiest
moments of his life, when his cup of bliss was filled to the brim, and
he became first a husband, then a father.
The past delightful after-marriage life arose like a fantastic dream
before Joshuais eyes. He began to perceive mentally the blissful
evenings he used to spend in his cheerful home. After the evening
meal he would take up his violin and play many a melodious air.
He still possessed a realistic image of his golden-haired little David
sitting near him, and with his beautiful blue eyes gazing at the instru-
ment and its kind master. On his imagination was still vividly por-
trayed the touch-scenes when, with his loyal instrument, he lulled his
little David to sleep. Especially was one Saturday evening of a by-
gone winter stamped upon his memory.
That evening was the last of his quiet, gentle flowing life: it was
the last time that the little family was united about a cozy hearth,
it was the last time that David heard the soft strains of his father's
violin playing his own beautiful composition, "Oh, Child, My Childf,
lt was for the last time that the little one felt the loving motherly kiss
on his full red lips and his crown of golden hair. For the next morning
the merciless whirl of Russian hatred and barbarism that had ruined
so many peaceful Jewish families had also swept the town of
The scenes of that horrible Sunday morning came back to him with
all its dread. He heard the fiendish yells of the savage Russians like
those of demons let loose for ravage and plunder. He saw once
more the flying forms of men, women and children, running, stumbling
before the murderous tempest, and falling into the very jaws of death.
Then the crash of window panes, desperate screams, moans, plead-
ings, all mingled with hellish shouts, re-echoed in his ears. Brutal
faces, bloody hands, distorted and mangled bodies swept by him.
Then cafne a crash on his head and everything grew dark and dim
around him, voices died off in the distance, and all became quiet.
lYhen he awoke, he found himself on one of several white beds
in a spacious room, on which moaning forms were sitting or lying.
His first impulse was to cry out for his wife and child, but he found
himself too weak to utter a word. And it was after a long illness,
after he had left the hospital, that he learned that his cup of sorrow
had overliown. His wife was mortally wounded and his little David
had vanished, and no trace could be found of him. In vain did loshua
search every nook for his lost son. Fate seemed to have completely
turned against him.
Dejected, worn out and despairing of all hopes of ever finding
David, Ioshua Michaelson resolved to leave the land of terrors and
seek a new home where he might forget his disasters. Naturally, he
turned to America.
But his sorrows had too deeply pierced his heart, and, try as he
would, the memories of his experiences recurred in his mind. As the
gloomy days passed by, Joshua, weakened by physical labor and
tortured mentally by the recollection of the catastrophies of his ex-
istence, felt his vitality and strength gradually but surely failing him.
In but a short time fate dealt him its last malicious blow. The once
vigorous business man of Ekaterineslov became incapable of earning
his livelihood: he was reduced to the state of an alms-seeker. It
was only during that state that joshua became oblivious to his past.
That was the tale that the violin told, the story of a glorious day
followed by a long, drear, dreadful night.
As if suddenly awakened from a dream, the beggar stopped playing.
A shudder ran through his weary body. He began to tremble, and a
fearful but anticipating thought Hashed through his mind, 'KVVhat
does it all mean? Is it a heavenly premonition of my end? During
my long years as a beggar the thoughts of the past have never
found place in my sluggish memory-and, now, now it all comes
back. Is it my last glimpse at my past? It must be V'
Then a sudden inspiration came to him. Before eternal sleep should
overwhelm him, he must again play his own little composition, the
lullaby that he used to play to his little David. No sooner thought
than done. Grasping the neck of the violin with one hand and the
bow with the other, he began.
As the sweet strains were being diffused through the narrow yard, a
window suddenly opened and a young man, astonishment and bewil-
derment plainly depicted on his features, looked down upon the
beggar, and listened attentively. '
Never in all his existence had Joshua concentrated his faculties
upon a task as he did in endeavoring to play his cradle song, "Oh,
Child, My Child !" I
Overwhelmed by the acute pain of his doleful recollections, and
weakened by a three days' fast, the wretched ruin of the once vigorous
man sank on the dirty pavement of the tenement yard near his only

and last friend, the violin. The shrieks of the frightened children
soon brought a number of people around the fainted beggar. An ele-
gantly clad man, the same who had opened the window to listen to
the music of the old man, pushed his way through the crowd, and
kneeled down beside the body.
"I am a doctor,', he said authoritatively.
After a short examination, he ordered the unconscious beggar to
be carried inside the building. A half hour's work enabled the doctor
to revive the old man.
As soon as the patient was comfortably laid on a couch, the doctor
asked him gently: "Tell me how you come to know the music of the
lullaby you just played P"
"Ohl That was my own composition. It is a memento of a sad
event. I used to play it, many years ago, to my child."
"Your child? lVhat was his name?" asked the doctor, a little be-
"David, my little David, David Michaelsonf' answered the old man
with tears in his eyes.
The young man's face turned livid, and, with a passionate cry, he
threw his arms about the old man's body, pressing it tightly to his
wildly beating heart, and murmuring with fervent joy, "Oh, father, my
dear lost father. You are found at last l"
At first the beggar was in a bewildered confusion and stared va-
cantly into the tearful eyes of the young doctor: but as the mist
lifted from his mind he tightly clasped his hands about the physician's
neck and swooned again.
lVhen he awoke from his stupor, the first words that his parched
lips uttered were, "Oh, child, my child, can it be true that God has
sent thee to me at last! Oh, David-"
'iBe calm, dear father! You must rest!"
"'XVhen such a miracle has been performed before my very eyes?
How did it happen? Tell me."
The young man turned his light blue eyes to the haggard, worn
out features of his old father, and in a gentle voice said: "It was the
Voice of the Violin, father, that brought you to my side. The throb-
bing rhythm of those Hrst strains revived in a flash the slumbering
memories of my childhood. Praise be to the Voice of the Violin,
which has recalled a son to his long-lost father."

lYhat shades haunt these, the words that age has writ
Dead bones left bleaching on the sands of time

FALL TERM, 1913
'13 HE Fall term of 1913 saw great progress in the Academic
1 V Herald. Before that time the paper was a sixteen-page
f affair, poorly edited, and, beyond a few cuts for headings
F31 ll QU of departments, was utterly devoid of cartoons and illustra-
tions. The circulation was remarkably small considering
the size of the student body, and the paper was decidedly unpro-
Then Miles M. Sherower became editor. Immediately things
boomed. The first important change effected by the energetic lllr.
Sherower was the increase in the size of the paper to thirty-two pages,
twice its former volume. He inserted cartoons, headings for the ath-
letic departments and other pictorial features.
Notwithstanding the more than doubled expenses involved in these
improvements, Mr. Sherower retained the low price of five cents per
copy for the magazine. To do this, it was necessary to secure a
vastly greater amount of advertising than the Herald had ever before
containedg and it must be said in credit to Mr. Sherower that he
himself, notwithstanding his manifold editorial duties, did almost all
of the soliciting.
The student body responded warmly to these salutary efforts, and
the circulation swelled to twice its original size. Financially and
otherwise the Herald enjoyed a prosperity hitherto undreamed of by
even the most ardent of Harris journalists. Mr. Sherower now
executed a masterstroke. At the end of the term, in February, 1914,
he published a sixty-four page Herald that was rife with the fmest
material he could secure, regardless of expense and difficulty. lt was
this magnificent issue which brought the Herald recognition by the
other high-school papers of the entire country. The Academic Herald
was and is now on a plane with the best of them.
SPRING TERM, 1914
,,,v-5,3 T was left to the present staff to take advantage of the
N , insistence of financial embarrassments to hinder it, to make
Q the paper artistically perfect. The Academic Herald left
by the preceding staff was, in its way, a good paper, but
there were serious faults. The dummying was imperfect, the arrange-
ment almost barbaric in taste, and the typographical errors in some
issues were overwhelming. In these respects the Herald attained a
notoriety that was distinctly depreciative. It was the task of Ralph
Arcaro and his associates to improvise remedies to introduce an
arrangement that was not a derangement and to minimize typo-
graphical mistakes. This the staff has nobly done and, in so doing,
has accomplished the complete regeneration of the Academic Herald.
71 financial security it was heir to, and Without the nagging
Speaking collectively, it was the staff that did it, it was inevitable
that every man on the staff should contribute something to this end.
The staff of a paper, however, can be epitomized in one word: the
Editorls name. It was Arcaro who directed the Academic Herald,
who piloted it through the many inclemencies of the journalistic ele-
ments. Tt was Arcarois individuality that molded the Work and
stamped it with the brand of quality. NVhatever the Herald accom-
plished was due to his having loaded, directed and primed the guns.
The assistance he received from his associates was, however, inval-
uable. Mr. Seadler's experience, Messrs. Forgioneys, Hahn's and
Gershvin's contributions, all tended to round out and polish the efforts
of the Editor.
The Academic Herald staff that leaves this june may well pride
itself upon its achievements.

solely of upper class fellows, who would countenance no
lower-class 'fpresumptionfl There is no doubting' the fact that the
lVebb Literary Society was an excellent club, but the trouble lay in its
exclusivcness. llflany of the students earnestly desired to join it but
were not permitted to do so. A few of these, however, were too
ambitious and too active to receive such a rebuff and not resent it.
They immediately set to work to form a rival society, which they
named "The Harris Debating Society."
These few students had no idea to what extent their little project
was destined to make our school "sit up and take notice," for, although
their club at first grew slowly, it attracted the attention and interest
of all as a new feature of Townsend Harris organizations.
But, at about the same time, another club, "The Groesbeck Debating
Society," sprang up, and entered what had already become a keen corn-
petition for literary supremacy. The XfVebb was compelled to awaken
from her long slumber and open her doors to the School, forgetting
her former exclusiveness. Witliin a year, however, despite her efforts
to kindle anew the smoldering fires of life within her, the VVebb was
no more. The Harris had met and overcome her on her own ground-
debate, And then the Groesbeck clamored for recognition, and loudly
challenged the Harris. The following semester, she, likewise, was
defeated and she, too, succumbed. Now the Harris Debating Society
was supreme in her chosen field.
Sometime previous to its successes the club had asked Mr. Schulz,
of the English Department, to act as Supervisor and Honorary Mem-
ber of the Organization. This position he willingly accepted, and it
is largely due to his past efforts that the Harris maintains her present
prominent position. Much credit is due Mr. Schulz for rehearsing
and coaching the debating teams, and deep gratitude for extricating
the society froin many of the ditliculties which at lirst confronted her.
The club deeply appreciates his past work, and hopes he will continue
in his capacity of advisor.
HARRIS DEBATING SOClETY
But not only did the Harris win school-wide popularity, it also
progressed rapidly in membership. Under the direction of Mr. Schulz
at first, and then through the efforts of the members alone, a thorough
system was inaugurated, whereby the greatest possible beneht was
derived from the practice of writing and of oratory. The members
would write stories, poems, essays, speeches, etc., and deliver them
before the society, after which a critic, an expert member elected by
the students, would criticize them. But what they derived most ben-
etit from was practice of debate, for which the Club was most noted.
Almost every week they held discussions upon some current topic
of national, civil, economic, or sociological importance. Thus they
learned not only the art and science of debate, but also how to get
at the root of important public questions and intelligently discuss
them. At the close of each semester, they held a moot-court for the
benefit of the institution in general, in which an opportunity was
451 THE HARRIS ANNUAL
offered to study and carry out to the minutest detail the rules and
regulations of the civil court, and to show the students of Townsend
Harris Hall the achievements of the Harris Debating Society.
Now, having defeated the debating teams of both the Wfebb and
the Groesbeck, the members of the Harris naturally turned to clubs
in other schools as possible rivals. To this end, they asked Professor
Sim's permission to represent Townsend Harris in interscholastic de-
bates. Professor Sim referred them to the Athletic Association, which
organization refused the request, saying that any society might engage
in such debates, but not in the name of the School. However, the
Harris found it impossible to arrange a debate with any other school,
being met with one excuse after the other, from every institution it

was to be writing. After a little deliberation, the students suddenly
announced the organization of a new club-the uQuill."
The response of the school was instantaneous. The few pioneers
were speedily joined by fifteen or twenty young men, students who
were already known for brilliancy in composition work. This impetus

Although the original scope of the club had only included the writ-
ing of compositions, the members soon tired of this narrow field and
ventured out into the more glorious realm of short-story writing.
This fascinating form of literature grew very popular, and, in order to
fully satisfy the boys' fondness for the short story and, at the same
time, instruct them, Dr. Friedland decided to give a little talk each
week upon this subject. These talks were immensely popular with
the members and, as a result, the prestige of the club grew by leaps
From the short story point the work of the club expanded further
and embraced higher forms of literature. From time to time, little
gems of poetry from such men as Schneider and Forgione, have
appeared and much favorable criticism was inspired as a result. The
increasing popularity of moving pictures caused the writing of many
scenarios which were acknowledged to be fully as good as some of
the leading "thrillers" Not a few full-sized plays have appeared,
and, while they never approached a possibility of being staged, still
showed talent with a promising future.
The Quill Club has steadily progressed since its founding and is
in no frenzied struggle for existence. But "practice makes perfect"
and it can only work to the welfare of a literary aspirant to become
a member of this club for he will learn how to write in the only way-

those who are in the A classes can readily disprove such an
idea, for there was a time when Harris featured in these
In February, l9l2, under the supervision of Dr. Saxton and Dr.
Mendelsohn, there was a rehabilitation of the Chess and Checker
Club. This club soon began to prosper. The members met every
afternoon and held matches. After one term a chess tournament was
held and the five best players were selected to represent T. H. H.
They were Rossman, manager, Gill, Post, Greenberg and Berger.
There was a similar match for checkers, and Udell, manager, XfVelko--
The chess team defeated every opponent in the city championship
except Stuyvesant, whom they tied. NVith Harris and Stuyvesant
tied for the championship a quarrel arose as to a certain match.
The managers of all teams concerned ruled that Harris must forfeit
four games because of certain technicalities. This dropped our men
out of the race but they finished second.
The checker team arranged individual matches with Clinton, Stuy-
vesant, Commerce and other schools. Stuyvesant was the only school
which made us bow. However, the total score of three matches with
that school gave us a lead of three points. Both teams continued
for three terms, winning numerous matches. Tn june, l9l3, gradua-
tion deprived us of most of our men and the club deteriorated and
finally expired in the following term. Several efforts have been made
to re-establish such a society in Harris and it appears that they will
culminate in success for some students are now supporting chess and
checkers with great zeal and enthusiasm.

J cg i' the executive councils completed a year of successful admin-
i E g istration.
Unprecedented student gatherings for athletic endeavors took place,
and in each individual case the assembly hall, crowded to its ca-
pacity, and even exceeding it, re-echoed with the overflowing dis-
play of loyalty, enthusiasm and school spirit. Compulsory attend-
ance was unnecessary as the students were apprised previously of
every project which necessitated their co-operation and assistance.
Although the sale of A. A. tickets did not exceed that of former
terms, nevertheless, all other factors combined in effecting an aug-
mented interest in all athletics on the part of the student body. A
retrospective glance of the achievements of each team shows the true
state of affairs. p
Definite plans were launched in regard to an interclass track tourna-
ment which was run off in perfect style. The interclass soccer tourna-
ment, under the management of a capable and energetic committee,
was completed without any protests of a discrediting nature.
The status of any high school is determined, to a certain extent,
by its athletic powers. Every attempt that the councils for the year
have manifested was intended to merit your approval. The only
reward they desired was your appreciation and co-operation, the only
advice they offer is that you students combine in rendering it a per-

Harris as one of the romoters of soccer. Pure rit and
excellent spirit, together with the support of the students and the
assistance of the Athletic Association were the main factors in
placing our team third in the race for the championship.
At first there were some difficulties. Delay in regard to the estab-
lishment of the team for the year and the absence of a coach pre-
vented practice and choosing of positions. As a result our line-up
for the first game was rather weak, and offered little or no resistance
to the Curtis men. The only feature of the game was the goal scored
by Zimmerman from a sharp scrimmage.
At this point our brilliant coach got busy, set his men to hard
practice, picked positions, and showed the result of his work in the
next four games, Four great victories followed in quick succession,
Commerce, Boys' High, Morris and Columbia's second team. Our
speedy forward line swept everything in front of it, and had no diffi-
culty in finding its opponentis goal. "Mike" featured in the Morris
game by shooting two goals in the last seven minutes of play.
Manual was our next visitor. VVhen the Brooklynites arrived
jasper Oval was a cross between a swamp and a lake. Both teams
were greatly handicapped in their kicking and passing. ln addition,
our men lost all their speed in the slimy ooze, while our much heavier
rivals seemed to force their way along by sheer strength. The fact
that the superiority of our rivals was evident from the first only adds
to the credit due to the crimson backfield for the resistance which they
offered. "Artie" Cantrell's mighty right foot saved the day many a
time. But the inevitable happened in the second half, when Clark, of
Manual, made an excellent shot for the only tally of the game.
A practice game with the C. C. N. Y. Freshmen helped to put our
men in form and to strengthen our hopes. A penalty, scored by
"Mike," ended the game in our favor. The following Saturday,
Erasmus came over and our boys made short work of them. VVe

completely outplayed them, and only carelessness kept the score down
to 4 to l in our favor. Harris fans looked forward to the scrimmage
with Commercial as a sure victory for the Crimson and Gold. The
men from Brooklyn, however, had their own ideas about the matter,
and, taking advantage of the over-confidence of the home team,
turned a defeat into a tie.
Clinton was the next to test our strength and was defeated in a
one-sided game. Shifting winds kept our line from placing the ball
more than twice between Clinton's posts. In the last game of the sea-
son our men were too confident and fell down before the strong attack
Besides taking third place in the final record, we succeeded in get-
ting two men on the all-scholastic soccer team-namely, Zimmerman,
who played outside right, and Perrotti, our center. The team as a
whole was awarded the block H for the brilliant work done through
the entire season. The following are the scores of the games that were

lYe started the season with four veterans, Capt. Curry, Michaelson,
.Toffe and Bennett. Chief among the new men were Holman and
Adler. The first conflict was with an old rival of ours, Hoboken,
to whom we have paid tribute again and again. This season wit-
nessed the same sad sight. Our boys piled up 19 points against the
Alumni, in a fast game, a few days later.
Erasmus forfeited their game to us and the next game with Ca-
thedral College, Zd, was won only after a hard fight. Withiii the two
following weeks, both Mt. Vernon and Fordham Prep. were forced
to acknowledge our superiority. Mt. Vernon furnished plenty of
excitement, but the Fordham boys were too far outclassed to offer
much resistance. At this time we weakened and allowed Commercial
to break our winning streak and defeat us by a 25 to 10 score.
On January the 2nd we celebrated the New Year by defeating
Commerce in our first P. S. A. L. game. "Mussy" Holman shared
the honors of the game with his brother "Nadie," of Commerce.
Neither side could gain a decided advantage, as is shown by the
final score of 19 to 18. The following week saw our third unsuccessful
attack on the Jersey "Jinx," North Plainfield came over to us and
took things into their own hands.
Our hopes for the P. S. A. L, Championship were jarred con-
siderably when Stuyvesant defeated us by a clean-cut victory. At
the end of the first half the score stood 12 to 10 in their favor, and in
the second it looked as if a cyclone had struck us. In the scrimmage
with Clinton on Ian. 16 we got the wrong end of a 26 to 24 score,
but, when we consider the brilliant record of the Red and Black, this
close score is something to be proud of. Little Kaufman was the
mainstay of his team, and Capt. Curry's 14 points were a big help

QQ UR showing this season in the tank is deserving of great
praise. Struggling gamely with that characteristic Harris
Lspirit against stronger and more experienced competitors,
A ,our men, under the able instruction of Coach McCormick,
were able to defeat seven of their nine adversaries and
score a close second in the championships.
The season started auspiciously by our victories over Stuyvesant,
Manual and Commercial. Harris was jubilant, and all looked forward
to the point trophy of the championships. But, as usual, pride came
before the fall, and when we fell we landed with a thump. The
Commerce and Clinton teams came, saw and conquered, leaving ruin
in their wake. In spite of this, our boys took a brace and in two
practice meets defeated Mount Vernon High School and the sailors
from the North Dakota.
In the final and most important event of the year, the championships,
we took second place. Only the fast swimming of the Clinton veterans
kept us from the highest honors. Both our relays took places, giving
us a start off of four points. Emanuel took first in the dive, as was
expected. In the fifty, Bosworth furnished Clinton's speedy captain
a worthy opponent and was only beaten out for first place by a
brilliant exhibition of swimming by the latter. XVade and Munson
added four points to our score by taking second and third in the
furlong. Our other point was scored by Manager Vermilyea in the
hundred, making a total of 18 points, second to Clinton, whose am-
phibians had amassed 27 points.

INTERCLASS SWIMMING MEET
N Thursday, April 9th, the hrst interclass meet of the
season took place in the pool. The "Lowers," with handi-
caps on the "Uppers,,' took both meets. Little Fitz showed
some of the XY. K. Fitzgibbon speed in the century and
- X the relay. Merrick and Ncslwou, oi Lower C, easily nabbed
the dives. while Lehrman, of Lower C, small but spunky, took third.
Broons, the fat man of Upper C, showed up well in the plunge,
winning from scratch with a plunge of 43I6 feet. In the B meet,
1Yeil and Adelstein, of Lower B, each took a hrst in the 100 and 200
tt. swim, respectively, and Kramer and XVo1f, of Upper B, ran away
with the hundred-yard swim. "Macy and Mr. XYhyte ran the meet
oit without a hitch and had the assistance of our First string men as

Those who have not secured positions on the first nine have been
formed into a second team, which is playing havoc with local athletic
clubs and other high school seconds.
Manager Taflovitch has prepared a hard schedule of eighteen games
for the first team. Four of these games, with Evander Childs, I-fefley
Institute, Curtis and Morris, have been played, but, owing to the
ineligibility of many of our men, Harris is so far credited with only
one victory, over Evander Childs.
Interclass Baseball Tournament
Baseball has always been the most popular sport of I-Iarris. Those
who have been unable, for any reason, to play with the school team,
have contented themselves with class teams and "pick-up" games.
The interclass baseball tournament is exactly what was needed to
afford these fellows some good games with a definite goal to reach.
Among the twenty, or more, teams which have entered, Upper A3
and Upper A6 are apparently the chief contenders.
The success of the baseball tournament proves the popularity of
interclass competition in I-Iarris. Such competition should be encour-
aged in all branches of sport, for, in addition to affording clean pleasure
to everyone, it developes men for the higher honors of the school

class. These two men soon organized a regular wrestling squad.
Under the supervision of Mr. Canute Hanson, who is now succeeded
by his brother, Mr. Henry Hanson, this and the succeeding squads
soon acquired a brilliant name for Townsend Harris Hall.
Men who have grit and an average amount of strength are those
to be taken on the squad. They are trained and developed, and the
best are picked for the team which is to represent Harris. Our coach
gives every opportunity to non-experienced men whom he coaches and
trains for steady work. Some of these men make the best wrestlers
on the squad. Our squad usually consists of from twenty-tive to
Under Coach Hanson, our team gained recognition. XYe have not
been defeated during the entire three and a half years that wrestling
has been considered a sport in this institution. Among our victims
were Poly Prep. School, whom we defeated six times, and the
Y, M. C. A. As a result of these and other victories, Harris is the
proud owner of two banners from this sport alone.
VVhen Mr. Canute Hanson was not able to coach our men any
longer, a silver loving cup was presented to him as a token of our
esteem. Since then his brother has been coaching our boys and
now he has a very fair squad to pick from, among which are Zetkin,
Cantor, the fifteen-year-old giant, Siminoff, Rosen, Brill, who is a
fast man, Hajinian, the Armenian, and Spark. one of our bright lights,
The fact that Zetkin is succeeding in forming an interscholastic
tournament, to be under the auspices of the P. S. A, L., shows that
wrestling, in Townsend Harris Hall and the college, will now, more
than ever, be a popular and a recognized sport.

HREE years ago, under the supervision of Prof. Cosenza,
Kgg the Harris Track Team wielded the big stick. They were
consistent, well-disciplined and reliable body of healthy
young runners who never failed to score largely. Owing to
' 'f' lcollege duties Prof. Cosenza was compelled to resign. Ab-
sence of a coach soon got the team into intricate labyrinths of trouble,
and as a result deteriorated and finally disbanded.
But such a deplorable condition could not be permitted to exist.
Raimist, Udell and Rubenstein, spirited students, persistently nagged
the Executive Council until the latter took the active measure of
electing Raimist manager. A call was made for candidates. Seventy-
five loyal Harrisites responded nobly by coming out for practice.
They have reported regularly all term. At present a fairly promising
squad of Mercuryls worshippers have been retained as the Harris
First Annual Interclass Meet
The first interclass track meet was very successful. It brought
forward some raw material which promises well. The events were
run off without a hitch. Beautiful silver and bronze medals were
prepared and given to the victors at a mass meeting. These games
have so stimulated the spirit for such affairs that we have great hopes
of better meets in the future.

Z6 THE HARRIS ANNUAL
UE greatly to the work of the committees, the Class of
February, 1914, met with great success in almost all its
Qi' undertakings. The one important event of the term was to
try to procure diplomas from the board of trustees. These
L' ' were promised by the latter, but have not yet been issued.
The first accomplishment of the class was to embellish its alcove
with artistic and ornamental decorations. A permanent, glass-covered
sign was erected upon the bulletin board for the benefit of the follow-
ing classes. Attempts were made by the athletic committee to estab-
lish a soccer team, but the attempt failed owing to lack of support
by the students.
ln the customary sequence of events, the class picture was taken.
This required patience and endurance on the part of the boys, for
just as the picture was about to be snapped, the door of the gym
was opened and a mob of college Sophomores burst out, sweeping
everything in front of them, and nearly burying Professors Sim and
Thompson beneath the mass of human bodies. Finally the shutter
was opened and closed, and all was over. Despite the disturbances,
the picture turned out clear and distinct.
The class dance took place in the latter part of December. This
affair proved a great success, owing to the large attendance from
Harris and other high schools. Refreshments were served, and the
lemonade was voted the best ever. At the head of the grand march
was one "Tuxedo," the only present, for no attempt was made to
have the dance formal.
On graduation day the exercises were presented without a mishap.
After the performances of two plays and the presentation of the
oration medals to Becker and Schwartz, it was announced that the
diplomas were not at hand, but would be distributed in the near
Before leaving, the class presented Harris with a silver loving cup
as a token of its regard for the school. The cup was to be given to
the class winning the most points in the interclass athletic meet of
the following term. There still being a surplus in the treasury, a
T. H. H. Alumni Association was founded for the benefit of the former
supporters of the Crimson and Gold.

"Bill" Curran immediately called a meeting of the class delegates.
and soon after appointed his committees, among which was a novel
committee whose function was to draw up plans for a llarris Annual.
The delegates passed a motion that each member of the class be
taxed fifty cents. XYith a capital easily forthcoming. the committees
proceeded to acoinplish their assigned work.
The alcove was decorated with banners and pictures, and such ar-
tists as Olsen and Solotarolf contributed drawings. The Athletic
Committee arranged an interclass baseball tournament which is still
Magnilicently embellished pins, set with pearls, and fjold fobs also
were obtained, and were purchased in great quantities. The picture
coninittee deserves commendation for the manner in which it accom-
plished its duty. Considering the number ol students, the picture
turned out to be very clear.
The dance was an admirable success. Three hundred were pres-
ent, and all enjoyed themselves immensely.
The interest of the class now centers about the class and graduation
day exercises. "David Garricku was chosen as the play, in the title
role of which Mr. Blutreich is to star. In the tryouts for the Oration
Contest .lerome Sinsheimer and lsidore Schneider were chosen. Jacob
Klansky and Trvinsf Levy were selected for the declamation.
Limitless credit is due President XYillia1n Curran and the com-
mittees, whose untiring efforts have combined to make the term's
work an established success.
THE UPPER A DANCE
hlupiter had given sway to his gloomy feelings. It was a dripping,
dreary night. Streets were deserted and even destitute of vehicles.
Nevertheless, on this night. the twenty-fifth of April, couples were
to be seen walking hurriedly into the Gymnasium Building of the
College of the City of New York. The entire "Gym" was illuminated
and seemed ablaze.
Inside all was hustle and rustle, most of which noise came from
the ladies' dressing room. One glance, only a casual one, was suf-
ficient to satisfy anyone that they were some ladies.
The entire gallery above the basketball court, which was being used
as the dance floor, was hung with banners and college pennants. And,
lest we forget, over in one corner of the court was a stand. where
"Mike" Lachowski and "Louey'l Forgione were efficiently serving re-
It was about half past eight when the band struck up. Couples
were soon gliding on the floor. Conspicuous among them was lYill
Curran, the Upper A president. He carried himself like a sovereign,
and before long the girls had fallen prey to his enchantments.
The crowd soon numbered about two hundred and fifty. The
music was "catchy" and the guests were in exuberant spirits. Under
the able guidance of Phil Reichert, the Feb., '14, president, the grand
march proved a great success. The committee also arranged a
novelty dance. The girls gathered at one end of the gym, the boys
at the other. At a given signal the boys rushed forward and picked
a girl to dance with. The action was then reyersed. They separated,
and the gentler sex rushed to select their partners. This was great
fun and it continued until the crowd adjourned at twelve o'clock to
Gruver's, happy and jubilant.
The dance committee, consisting of I. Cohen, A. Tager and H.
Tucker. is to be highly commended for the zeal and earnestness with
which it despatched its duties.
It may be added that Dr. Arbib-Costa and Prof. Cosenza honored
the occasion by their presence, for which act of kindness the class was

Q4 - THF HARRIS ANNUAL
A L L LLL L L, I-Cin
' ' Ll. L
years ago the students of the academic classes of
V C. X. Y. decided that the l,ax'ender and Black of their
Qfgimx Wi older brothers were not the colors that they desired. and
they set tu work to select ditlerent ones. Crimson and
r"Li'tio1f1 were chosen. That choice, made in 1905. was the
beginning' of Townsend Harris Hall as one of the High Schools of
Before this time several unsuccessful attempts had been made to
publish a paper in opposition to the College Mercury. Twice the
attempt failed. 111 1905, however, the Academic Herald linally got a
lirm footing, not in opposition to the Mercury, but as an organ of
the Townsend Harris Hall students. Nineteen hundred and live.
therefore, was the beginning of Harris activities.
In 1906 the Public School Athletic League started a basketball
tournament. Townsend Harris Hall entered a team, and for the first
time Harris was represented in interscholastic athletics. This team,
practically the same one that featured for C. C, N. Y. a few years
later, captured lirst honors in the iirst and second tournaments C1906-
1907 and 1908-190917, and gained for Harris a high position in the
athletic lield. Nineteen hundred and six rounded out and completed
the work of the preceding year, and, from a shaky foundation in 1905,
the Spring of 1907 saw Harris activities a reality, and Harris a
member of the Public School Athletic League.
Qnly one thing was lacking and that was an Alumni Association.
This, however, came more recently than the other innovations. Not
until Tune, '13, did any one entertain the idea of founding an Alumni
Association. During that year a committee was formed, consisting
of Otto Y. Tabor, Theodore Greenbaum and several others, all C. C.
N. Y. men, to form such an organization. This committee was ham-
pered by many things. Lack of funds, the disinterestedness of the
graduates, and its inability to get in touch with the older graduates
were the chief obstacles. lt was difficult, also, to communicate with
the fellows who had gone to other colleges than C. C. N. Y.
The class of February l9l-l learned of this budding association,
and decided to see the thing through. A large amount of the surplus
in the class treasury was given over toward forming an association
for making and fastening ties of friendship among the graduates of
Townsend Harris Hall. A committee, consisting of Harry Lipshitz,
Harold XYisan, -lulian Bergoffen, Robert Santangelo and Harold
Emerson, was formed to do the executive work of the association.
After some delay, the newly formed body called a meeting for April
28, l9l-1. Although only a small amount of ex-Harrisites came-the
rain had probably dampened the ardor of many fellows-temporary
ofhcers were elected to draw up a constitution and to build up the
membership. The officers were given the power to do the executive
work of the association.
Lorenz Reich, yO7, a former president of the C. C. N. Y.
Student Council, and who, during his four years at that institution,
was Business Manager and Editor of the Nlicrocosin. and Business
Manager of the Campus, was elected president. Mr. Reich is the
secretary of the Campus Association, and is a Tutor in mathematics
at Townsend Harris Hall. He is an active, progressive man, and
exactly the one to steer the Alumni clear through the shoals which
beset a newly formed organization. The vice-president is Frederick
C. Schang. 'fFreddy," as he was called during his stay at Harris, was
the Editor of the "Ac," He is now at Columbia University where he is
Editor of the Jester. Sidney Samuelson, 'll, the Editor of the City
College Mercury, is the recording secretary. Morris Ryskind, 'l2.
is the corresponding secretary. The treasurer, Greenberg, '12, is an
active fellow who was formerly president of the l9l6 class in City
For a young organization, the Alumni Association, in choosing its
officers, has made a fine start. 'XVhether it continues as it has begun,
only the following classes can tell. The Tune, ,l4, class, the first to
graduate after the formation of the Association, will indicate in what
light the younger fellows consider it. If they come out to a man as
soon as they are eligible to join it, the founders and members of the
Society will realize that the issue is a vital one to Harris. The next
meeting of the association, that is the first annual meeting, will
probably take place in September, l9l4.

'INOW tell me lame,
XVho is this dame
'Ihat flirts with you?
She makes me blue.
'4I'm sure she's glad
IVhen I am sad.
To think that she
I-Ias talen from me
"just you, you cussg
You've-made a muss
Of this affairg
And she-I'll tear
As for you, kid,
I'll get you yet."
