CLASS HISTORY OF 1034
HE graduating class is at last about to attain the hard earned sheepskin that
will mean so much to their future. Yvhen first entering 'lirott Vocational
School some labored at typewriters and calculators, others filled the lower
corridors with ghastly odors in attempt to explore the secrets of unknown gases
and liquids. Still others tinkered with machinery trying to discover the malady of a
Nlodel T Ford. As freshmen the shop boys stood in awe at the glorified seniors of
'33 who knew all the secrets of machines, formulas, carburetors, and accelerators
that they themselves were trying so hard to master. These once mere youngsters
are now going forth as adult efficiency experts each soon to procure a job that will
lead him to the way of happiness in success.
After the first year which always proves to be the most difficult, we entered
our senior year under the student council guidance of Marvin Beck, president,
Wlalter Thomas, vice-president, loe Iamarco, secretary, and Mike Portick, treasurer.
Under the capable leadership of these fine officers a year of pleasant activities as
well as scholastic success was completed.
At the opening of the basketball season, an athletic association composed of
150 members was formed. Mike Ercliak was elected president, Edward Clark,
vice-president, and Anne NVinger, secretary.
On lanuary 18, the "Land O'Cotton" Nlinstrel Show was given in the Audi-
torium ofrlirott Vocational School. The seniors, Ioe lamarco and Iohn Tomazeweslxi,
took two leading rolls assisted by a chorus composed of many of their fellowclassmen.
The Varsity Basketball Team gloried in a successful season as members to
the R. P. l. League for the first time. 'lihe efforts of the following seniors, Russell
Gregory, lohn Porreco, Charles Hollwwicli, and Urvin Alaybe, combined with that
of Trott High Students were largely responsible for Trott's success.
ln Nlarch a startling announcement from the office stated that those who con-
sidered themselves seniors were to inform their respective teachers. It was surprising
that the time spent at 'lirott was nearly over. Xve had entered with one thought in
mind, to reach the same port, and perhaps combine pleasure with worlc. Now we
had nearly reached our pinnacle happily, if not a bit reluctantly.
At the first senior meeting Mr. Small was chosen class advisor. At the second
meeting a precedent was established in the election of Arlene Alaimo as president
of the Senior Class, the first girl to be chosen for this high position in the six years
ofTrott's existence. Ethyl Brown was elected vice-president, lohn Porreco, secretary,
and Stanley Chervinslci, treasurer.
lNe have now reached our goal, one which seemed so distant when we entered
rlirott Vocational School. After graduation, we will scatter to find a place in the
world and then settle down to a routine. NVe may never see each other again in
school, but long may we remember our grand days at 'l'. V. S.l

TROTT VOCATIONAL SHOP GROUP
The rlirott Vocational Shop Group consists oi' almout 250 students. This course
otllers instruction in chemistry, drafting, auto mechanics, machinery, electricity, and
millwrighting. Students taking this course are taught every phase ol' their individual
work and when they are graduated they are alile to continue it as their life's work.
The largest shop division is the millwright shop which numhers thirty-two students.
Each course otlered is complete in itself. The vocational group as well as the com-
mercial department is operated on the Dalton Plan. XVhen a student completes
sixteen units of work, he is graduated from the trade he is taking and is eligihle for
employment. Because of this system sixty students of the vocational group have
heen placed with employers. The vocational department does not consider its jolm
complete until students are properly placed where their knowledge will aid them in
their work. Follow up visits are made hy the instructors to ascertain it' any further
help is needed hy the graduate.

TROTT COMMERCIAL AND CONTINUATION
Trott's Commercial Section is composed of about three hundred students who
receive worthwhile and complete instruction in typewriting, filing, office practice,
lmookkeeping, and operation of office appliances. Since rapid and accurate work are
two of' the outstanding requirements of persons engaged in office work, this phase is
particularly stressed until every graduate is a skilled worker in his or her field. The
course has proved itself' to lie one of the most popular in the school owing to the
tact that it too is operated on the Dalton Plan.
Ut' all the departments in Trott, the Continuation Department is the most
interesting and the least known. It is chiefly a social service unit created for the
purpose of' aiding children who are unalile to attend full time school. It is here
that the working lioy or girl is acquainted with the latest ideas in the profession
which he or she is following. Here as well as in the vocation and commercial
departments, the school helps to secure employment for the pupils.

THE 1954 PRIZE STORY IN TROTT
THE GREATER LOVE
NIC warm summer night a group of campers were engaged in a spirited
controversy as to whether or not civilization had weakened or increased the
power of love, and one after another defended his views. David Saunders, a
noted explorer of the tropical islands, hroke the silence. "There is no douht in my
mind," he said, "as to which side has the right ofit," and he poured forth this story:
"The sun came out in all its glory and it was hard to helieve that a few hours
hefore a fierce tropical storm had lashed the sky and sea to a fury and that the ship
had gone down. lack Hays opened his eyes and found himself on a small native
island, the sole survivor of his exploration ship, 'The Christinaf He saw a graceful
figure approaching and as she came nearer perceived she was heautiful heyond words.
Her long hlack hair floated ahout her slender form, from her lips came a startled
cry. She seemed to draw away, hut he called out and finally through his knowledge
of many native dialects he made her understand that he was in need of food and
shelter. She looked stealthily ahout her and then led him to a strange, crude,
temple-like structure carved in the likeness of the head of a great crocodile.
"Days passed swiftly hy for lack as he lay under the tender care of the lovely
Laneen. Une evening as they watched the moonlight that played with the shadows
cast hy the rocks, he hegged her to flee with him to another island where they could
live the rest of their days safely and happily in a pagan paradise. She, at last,
consented and through the long darkness they traveled silently and swiftly in an
out-rigger canoe heneath the tropical stars. At dawn they landed upon an un-
"The long, lovely tropical days passed lazily, softly hy: hut this new-found
happiness was not to last, for suddenly lack was stricken with the dreaded fever
of the tropics and for days lay in a semi-coma. He wasted rapidly despite Laneen's
efforts until at last she knew that death was close. Now she understood: she had
offended the temple god and in his anger he was taking her heloved away from her.
There was only one thing to do. After a tremendous struggle she got lack into the
canoe and returned to Crocodile Island. Hiding the hoat and its precious cargo
she sped to the temple and offered herself as a sacrifice for the ceremonial dance
which was to take place at the rising of the moon of flowers. As a holy creature set
aside for sacrifice she would have access to the golden seal hearing the image of the
crocodile god whose hrand would protect from all evil any who hore it. It gave
the wearer tremendous power hut few availed themselves of it, for it could he
ohtained only through a willing, living sacrifice to the hideous god.
"XVhen she had procured the seal, she hound lack securely and hlinded with
tears hranded him deeply on the chest with the heated seal, then heavy-hearted
hut resolute returned to the temple to he sacrificed.
"She was arranged reverently in the sacrihcial garments of great heauty.
lleafening through the tropical night came the slow, rhythmic pounding of the
tom toms. The ceremony had hegun. Xvith light step and eyes aglow she stepped
into the center of the circle and swaying in time to the instruments hegan the
dance ofdeath. At the close of day as the golden sun kissed the shadows of twilight
Laneen hid adieu to all earthly things and was given to the crocodile: hut even as
the slavering jaws of the scaly monster approached, she cried out the place where
her lover was hidden and claimed the natives' help and protection hy the seal of
the god he wore.

was sulliciently recovered he was taken to an island in the path ol' passing ships
where he was eventually picked up. He returned to civilization carrying with him
