Of those nine boys present then, seven are graduating this year, but our class has grown to forty-two. The original members occupied the top floor of Jones Hall, the only part of that building then used by stu- dents. The Leavitts and Topsy were on the ground floor and the rest of the school lived in Alumni Hall. We have seen the school grow to crowd the Leavitts out of Jones, just as next year it will crowd the infirmary out of Sturtevant House and into remodeled Proctor Home. The Leavitts moved into their fine new house last year just after Christ- mas vacation. Ours is the class that came in with Mr. Leavitt and the new regime. It will prob- ably be a long time before any students can boast that they have been here as long as the teachers. We have seen many changes about the school and many of these are due to clubs and organizations formed by the boys. Some of the clubs we started were the Glee Club, the Dramatic Club, the Outing Club, and the Camera Club. The Life magazine was continued. The Glee Club has taken many fine trips and they have sung over station W. N. B. X. in Springfield, Vermont, every year. The boys who went on the Boston trip last year are still taiking about it. We have heard their fine singing at vespers and other school functions. They have increased from the original twelve to twenty4eight. Redlon, Hanks, Schmidt and Frey have made a great quartet. The Dramatic Club has put on many fine performances. The combined efforts of Mr. Harris and the club have recently culminated in an excellent presentation of "T he Petrified Forest." We all admire the great ability of "Robert Taylor" Curtis. The Life magazine has, as we have said, continued. It won third prize in 1937, and second prize in 1938, in the contest sponsored by the Columbia Press Association for private schools. s The Outing Club was started with Mr. Parker as adviser. The first year the club built a cabin on a nearby hillside. Since then they have been responsible forldesigning and building the kitchen, fireplace, and the well at the cabin, and cutting ski trails about the campus. The Outing Club has helped with the four successful Mountain Days We have had. Vermont Weather is changeable and uncertain, but in snow or in the hot sun the steaks always tasted good. Last fall "General" Browder and his cohorts started a Rifle Club and constructed both an indoor and outdoor range. The noise of their artillery on the battlefield in the basement of Jones Hall is proof of their activities. The school swing band consisting of Messrs. Parker, Elston, Bitgood, and Redlon, has been heard blasting forth at some of the basketball games and during evening meeting several times. The first floor of Alumni Hall started an All Night Club. Coach Dunn claimed that he could wake up and hear them most any time of night. The Coach needs his sleep even if the boys don't, and while they may not have totally disbanded, their night life has been considerably subdued. Two other fine and worthy organizations, which carry much prestige, and to which one should not be late, are the Bird and Fish leagues. The Fish League plays tag foot- ball in the muck and slime of the football field after the last scheduled game. The Birds play a combination of hockey, football, and basketball on the basketball court. Un- skilled labor predominates in both leagues. The first year the football team lacked experience and their main asset was a fight- ing spirit. They lost heavily to several teams but were successful in beating K. U. A. by thirty-one points. The second year the team was rather heavy in comparison with other years. They defeated K. U. A. nine to nothing. For our junior year we trailed them by six points at the end of the first half, but through a wonderful second half comeback and a spectacular intercepted pass and touchdown by "Bob" Blood, we won thirteen to six. Although this is the first year we have been defeated by Kimball Union, this year's team was probably the best. The first year the Ski Team was aided by Amos Little and Merrill Barber who have since done well in competitive skiing. The last two years .the Ski Team has spent most of their time looking for snow. In the spring of our second year a track team was started for the first time. Coach rn- Dunn, who has coached everything except skiing and basketball, was in charge. Mr. Malcolm has since taken it over and this year's team is very good. The Hockey Team, which was the best since the sport started four years ago, lost only two games. We have had a fairly good Basketball Team every year. This winter they did well against college freshman teams and defeated Cushing and K. U. A. Flood and fire struck during our second year. Luckily Mr. Leavitt had a pre- monition and let school out a week early for spring vacation. Otherwise we would have been stranded for three days by the high waters of the Connecticut. Those who woke that memorable spring night to the cries of fire will not soon forget that terrific inferno of the old barn burning. The night before the Carnival in our third year, the school witnessed another conflagration just off the hill. In our second year we had in our midst that famous scientist, Rollo Sears. He and his formidable deathray kept Mr. Tripp in constant fear of being blown to bits. There have been numerous noteworthy days in our stay here-many we will not forget, the spring afternoon in '35 when Mr. Leavitt told us the school had received a 31,000 check and a half holiday was declared, the night of housewarming when Mr. Tillinghast made one of his famous speeches and Ed. Tebbutt lit the first fire in the new hearth, February 2, 1937-the snowless winter-when the Gods in charge of snow bequeathed us some and Mr. Leavitt declared a snow holiday, the first day of school when we heard "all to bed" and "one minute" again or for the first time, Homecoming Day, the days of the Christmas parties, the days vacations began, the night this winter when the Basketball Team defeated Cushing in two over-time periods twenty- nine to twenty-eight, the days we received replies from Dartmouth and other colleges in regard to admission, the night of the spring dance, the night Mr. Malcolm couldn't get the movie machine working right , the night Gene Redlon wrote "Coach Dunn From Old Wesleyan." We have also heard some lectures we will remember for a long time: Dr. Eddie O'Brien's at the football banquet, Bradford Washburn's thrilling account of his ascent of Mt. Lucania, Commander MacMillan's talk on the Arctic, the sports talk by Mr. Coty with his moving pictures. Some of the strange occurrences have been: Mr. Harris' losing his shoes while out with the Outing Club boys, the time the Alumni Hall boys collected the radiator tax in Jones Hall, the day Fritz Downs and Bob Smith were in a train wreck, when Mr. Holbrook's chemistry experiments didn't function the orthodox way. We have had four Carnivals, the first two with snow, but the second two lacked it. Except for a slight scarcity of snow, this year's Carnival was a big success with a tea dance in the afternoon and the Big Apple featured during the evening dance. At last we organized just before spring vacation. Louis Graves was elected Presi- dent, Bill Curtis Vice-President, Stan Kogut Secretary, and Gene Redlon Treasurer. Besides senior activities there was considerable thinking, planning, and hoping about our next year's plans. Many colleges were favored with our applications. After vacation bat and racquet swingers and future track stars commenced their activities. As we look back upon our first year and compare it with this year we see a great difference. There has been a great improvement in quality and quantity. Those were the days when we had silent picture shows here. The film sometimes broke and at the end of the show it was usually all over the floor. In our Junior year we found the school the proud possessor of a fine moving picture machine with sound attachment. Since then we have seen many fine pictures. Some of the other additions and improvements to the school are: new library books, the waiting room in the dining hall, the baseball batting cage, the new truck, and the hockey boards. We realized our days here were limited when we started work on the different senior committees. We all had a good time on the Class Outing. There was much trying on of caps and gowns and marching practice. Exams-Commencement Alumni lun- cheon-and we leave Vermont, but we take with us many fond memories of the school, the beautiful campus, and friends. We are not leaving for good. We shall be back again to visit the school we love so well and live over again our good times here. We, the Class of 1938, considering with clear judgment that our work in mind, body, and spirit is completed at Vermont Academy leave the following bequests: First, to the Class of 1939, all our fame including the excellent leadership of Louis Graves, President. Item, to four underclassmen the voices of the quartet CHanks, Redlon, Frey, and Schmidtj plus a few sharps and flats, and Redlon's throat-clearing act. Item, Andy Bitgood bequeaths his drums to Stacey Cole. Item, "Doc" Andersen leaves his wardrobe to "Dude" Rice. To Bill Lyons, Jack Reynold's aggressiveness in the Bird League basketball court. To Ben Saunders, Dan Casale's paper route and business ability. Bob Smith grants an appropriation so that the post office will not go into bank- ruptcy upon his departure. Bush, Hett, Glenn and Harlie Reed, Frey, Singleton, Irv. Townsend, the seven "old men," depart after four years of t-oil and service. Q Item, Bates leaves Lois to some love-sick underclassman. Item, to Jack Neff some of Duggan's height. I To any undergraduate, Dick Graves' technique of sleeping under beds. Item, Olchowski leaves a fine scholastic and athletic record. Nat Perry gives his medical supplies to the infirmary. Downs, the athlete, donates his room to some Junior who does not object to con- tinuous bull sessions. To Steve Porter, Jim Buckley wills the Rec room piano. Item, Hill gives his kitchen troubles to D. Smith. Bob Blood leaves, much to the relief of opposing athletic teams. Bill Dunn, Jr., inherits Bill Andrews' formula to keep that schoolboy complexion. We hope Bill Leahy does not leave his violin behind. To next year's varsity football center, Dick Baldwin leaves his stalwart skill. Item, "Gee-gee" Kogut leaves an outstanding athletic and service record. To Winne, Lang's running ability. Item, to Cal Cumings, "Bucket'i' Emerson's capacity for food. Item, Bill Curtis bequeaths his make-up kit to next year's leading man. To "Coon" Merriam, UT. D." Miller's horn-rimmed glasses. Marshall grants to the "butt squad," his cigarette lighter-which works! Item, Elston leaves his clarinet to Charlie Chandler. Item, "P, J ." Kimball leaves his ability to eat and talk at the same time to Whit- ney Brown. "Ringleader" Huntley wills his position to Stan Harvey. Item, O'Brien's chatter goes to Templeton. Item, Longshore leaves V. A. as quietly as he came. To Vince Bellondi, "Bud" Tingley's "serial" dreams. "Irv" Fenton gives his "Berkshire Evening Eagle" to the 'fJones boys", while his neighbor, Russ Fritz, gives the "New Haven Register" to the same group. Done this twelfth day of June in 1938, by the Class of 1938 of Vermont Academy. All is gone to one friend or another, save our memories which we hope will never reach an end. ' CLASS OF 1938 VERMONT ACADEMY EVENING SONG Words by Dorothy H. Leavitt Music by Gilbert B. Parker O Vermont we've seen your beauty, Changing with each hour and day, We have found your hidden trout pools, Where the lights and shadows play 5 Swirling sparks above a campfire, Hemlocks laden down with snow, Autumn hillsides flaming crimson, Where the sugar maples grow g Morning mist upon the mountain, Frosty stars across the sky, Snowy campus turned to silver ' When the moon is riding high. O Vermont we will not leave you Here behind us when we part, We will take your beauties with us, Etched forever on each heart.

FOOTBALL With Co-Captains Emerson and Blood at the helm, the 1937 edition of the Vermont Academy Football Team will go down in the archives as the group that made up for its lack of weight by its pertinacity and spirit. With three victories, two ties and two defeats, the team may look back with pride on the season, both defeats were contested until the bitter end, and the victories were well earned. The Orange and Black were conquerors over Stevens High, Holderness School and Mt. Hermon, they struggled to scoreless deadlocks with Stockbridge and Governor Dummer, and they were edged out by Dartmouth Freshmen and undefeated, unscored-on Kimball Union. Vermont Academy The season's record follows: Vermont Academy 13 Stevens High 7 Vermont Academy 31 Holderness School 0 Vermont Academy 0 Stockbridge 0 Dartmouth Fresh B 13 Governor Dummer 0 Mt. Hermon 0 Kimball Union 6 Vermont Academy 0 Vermont Academy 0 6 Vermont Academy 0 BASKETBALL The 1938 basketball campaign was definitely creditable with the team winning eight games and losing five. Of the latter, two were lost to powerful college freshman teams, Amherst and Wil- liams. Victories were enjoyed at the expense of such formidable aggregations as Cushing, Kimball Union and Mt. Hermon. The contest which unquestionably held the spotlight was the first of the Cushing games, held on our own court. Stan Kogut, high scorer of the season, sank an angle shot to bring victory to Vermont after two breath-taking overtime periods. Captain Curtis and Mr. Leavitt deserve great credit for the ability and spirit of this year's team. With most of the first five returning next year, Captain Don Rice should be able to lead a formidable team onto the floor. Vermont Academy Vermont Academy Vermont Academy Vermont Acad.

Captain Bob Blood, Whiting, Reynolds and Singleton, were the only veterans left from last year's team, but Coach Dunn built a fine, well-balanced outfit which had no outstanding stars, but exceptionally good team play. The first six was made up of the famous "Bob" line: Bob Smith, Bob Blood and Bob Churchill. With Bob Elston and Saunders at defense and Stan Harvey in the nets, the team was complete. Singleton, Gardiner and Bates made up a good second line. In most of the games the team was ably assisted by players from the J. V. group, who thus gained experience for future play. The varsity won eight and lost only two games, each of those by one goal, and each of them to very strong sextets. The J. V. team played a regular schedule too and won all four of its games. With four letter men back next year, Captain Stan Harvey will have a good nucleus for as good a team.

Hermon meet, but thereafter conditions were exceedingly poor. This however didn't faze V. A.'s skiers, for they turned in a fineshowing despite the lack of snow and consequent prac- tice. . ' After the New Hampton meet the team competed at K. U. A. in the Eastern Preparatory School Championships. The conditions there were adverse and the competition keen, but even so the team placed sixth. Next were the Vermont Interscholastics at Stowe, where the team placed fourth in Class A, thanks to Rod. Smith, Irv. Townsend, Holmes, Benedict and Captain Emerson. H The only thing we can hope for next year is more snow, so that Co-Captains Benedict and Holmes can lead their forces to greater heights. BASEBALL With the spring came the baseball season, earlier this year than usual, which was much better for the team. Having only a few veterans, Coach Markoski has developed a well rounded, fast and scrappy team which will give the best of them a battle. The loss of Stan Kogut for the earlier game 4 was a severe blow, but nevertheless the team will settle down and finish the season in grand style. Dick Graves will make a fine captain at second base. The rest of the infield is: Irv. Fenton at 1st, Huntington or Bates at shortstop, and Simonds at 3rd. In the outfield are: Stan Harvey, Don Frey, Don Rice and Louis Graves. Brad Bush is behind the bat, and the pitching staff con- sists of : Osgood, Rice, Luther Graves and Huntley. The schedule is as follows: , April 27 Leland and Gray Seminary? May 21 Cushing Academy?

This season a small but well balanced squad started practicing. The first meet with Bellows Falls, we won by the score of 57-42. At a dual meet with Brattleboro at Brattleboro we again came out ahead, this time by the score of 59-49. The climax of the dual meet season came against Kimball Union, where we won a most exciting meet 48-42, the outcome not being certain until Blood and Perry won the first two places in the 220. The other meets on the schedule are the Keene Invit-ation Meet and the Vermont Interscholastics, where we should win our share of points. Outstanding performers in the dual meets have been: Blood, Perry and Downs in the sprints, Hill and Lang in the middle distances, Stebbins and Singleton in the mile g Downs and Curtis in the hurdles, Blood and Downs in the jumps , and Saunders, Perry and Baldwin in the weight events. wt , TBQNNIS TEAM M Back row: Elston, D.

TENNIS After conditioning the courts and themselves, the tennis team really got down to business. Although they lost the first match mainly through the lack of practice, they will no doubt come back stronger and stronger as they acquire practice and experience. A flat hand game is prescribed by Coach Dunn, and when the boys find their shots, there will be no stopping them. OUTING CLUB I p, .fx ia1.efY'f"4 . , i . 1 i wus, X' s if 1 f 5 I I This old and tried organization has continued this year under the direction of Mr. Parker, to put on a program of work and fun that adds greatly to the enjoyment of the out-of-doors for all at V. A. In the fall and spring the work squad of the Club added extensively to the Cabin and its surroundings, digging a well nearby, building a porch and a woodshed, and finishing the interior of the Cabin by peeling the logs and adding two new bunks for the comfort of over- night guests. The members have also cleared three ski trails for winter sports use. On the fun side the Club has sponsored several feeds for the members and guests, and has run many trips to various points in the "Grand Campus." Day trips have gone off to climb mountains, and several week-end trips have been taken during the fall and spring to spots further away from the school. The big trip of the winter season was a visit to Pine Valley as guests of Mr. and Mrs. Graves. There the members enjoyed some of the best skiing of the season.

Smith DRAMATIC CLUB THE GLEE CLUB The Glee Club began its season with a remarkable turnout of twenty-seven members, under the leadership of Mr. Parker. There were several trips, including a broadcast from Springfield, Vermont, a concert at the Bellows Falls High School 5 and a trip to Cavendish, Vermont, where they sang in return for a delicious supper served in the home of Mr. Gay. The highlight of the season was the concert at the Baptist church of Holyoke, Mass. The quartet made numerous appearances, the most notable of which was the concert given at the reunion of the Alumni in Boston. The Dramatic Club, sponsored by Mr. Harris, has been especially successful in all of its productions during the past school year. The Club produced one group of one-act plays before Christmas and showed great acting ability. The second production was another group of one-act plays, in which the members did even better than in the first group. Just before spring vacation the Club did a much more difficult piece of work, "The Petrified Forest," and this was the high light of the dramatic season at V. A. this year. Our club president, Bill Curtis, has proved a fine leader and an excellent actor this year. To wind up an all too short season the V. A. actors will present "Broken Dishes," a comedy, as part of the 1938 Commencement program. 49' rafts! ,ef DRAMATI C CLUB Back row: Davidson, Bitgood, J. Townsend, Leahy, Redlon, Kimball, Downs.

A. organizations, has taken rapid strides since its establishment. Under Mr. Browder's direction the Club has constructed an outdoor range on the hill for fall and spring use, and an indoor range in the basement of Jones Hall for winter use. The Club has recently become affiliated with .the National Rifle Association so that the members may shoot for and win the medals and awards of that organization. The Club has developed many good marksmen among its members, and there have already been records made that will be hard to beat. This winter the Rifle Club team met and defeated a team from the Brattleboro Rifle Club, and the Club is looking forward to more outside competition next year. Chandler, Briggs.

This year's LIFE has been the product almost entirely of the Class of 1938, as all but two of the board have been members of that class. Last year the LIFE won third place in the competition conducted by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, and this year the LIFE was awarded second place. This shows that the LIFE is progressing as a magazine. Editor-in-Chief Bill Andrews, and-Business Manager Dan Casale, after running the paper well for this year, have turned their duties over tc the new editor and business manager, Frank Holmes and Gordon Cushman, with their staff of underclassmen.

CAMERA CLUB With Mr. Holbrook as the faculty supervisor the Camera Club has had an active season, as the appearance of the many candid cameras at V. A. this past year indicates. The Club held a contest before Christmas to see who could get the best picture of Dicky and Sally Leavitt. The Club's president, Lester Hett, ran away with the contest, and his picture was used on the Leavitt's Christmas cards. For many of the candid photographs used in the yearbook the W ildcai Wishes to thank the Camera Club. p FRENCH CLUB "Le Chat Sauvagef' the Vermont Academy French Club, was started this year under the able guidance of Mr. Bowman. At the weekly meetings the members conversed in French, played French games, sang many French songs, from nursery rhymes to modern transitions, and carried on correspondence with French students. As a novelty, every Sunday morning the club members sat at one table in the dining- room and ordered in French throughout the meal. Les ojficiers for the year were: Fred Hunt- ley, Pres., Donald Frey, Vice Pres., and Ken Duggan, Sec.-Treas. w mu11z s ssmnnsn -- X . . ,Nw :mmm swsu-,rwwm an . Q.. I LA DOUGLAS ALDEN .
