After great deliberation in '24, we, as the newly promoted Freshman Class, de- cided upon this motto, hoping to leave behind us a record of which we might well be proud. Perhaps we have succeeded and perhaps not, but no one knows better than we how earnestly we have tried to make good. , In the future may it be hoped that the graduating class will make as much use of their school motto as they have during their last four years, for he who follows these simple but meaningful words is bound for success.

MISS HELEN HOSP CLASS DEAN 14 HISTORY OF T.HE CLASS 012 1928 On September 8, 1924, about forty students stood waiting for the new High School doors to open. We were not strangers to one another-incidentally, three of us had gone through school from the first grade together. It was a terrible come-down for us to be called "Freshies" and similar names when only three months before we were looked up to and respected because we were the graduating class of the Verona Grammar School. At last the doors were opened and we were glad to go to the room assigned to "Freshmen" because there were no upper classmen there. Our teacher, Miss Helen Hosp, was a Freshman to Verona High School that year also, and we were glad to have her as our representative on the faculty. Another new-comer was Miss Helen Maxon, our music director. She took the place of Miss Louise Lawrence. We worked diligently at our new and interesting tasks, but were interrupted by class elections. Donald White was elected President, Harmon Driscoll, vice-presidentg Isabel Nelson, secretary, and Dorothy Kientz, treasurer. During the year Donald White resigned and Harold Littleheld was elected President-thus personifying the "long and short of it." ' The hike was the next big event. None of us had to be carried home although some required a little assistance. A few were taught how becoming black paint would be as make-up. We again started to study. Then came the senior Hallowe'en party at which we were entertained. After this dance we looked forward to the one we would give to the school later on. Before our dance, however, the High School plays were given. They were enacted by the Seniors, juniors and Sophomores under the direction of Miss Winifred Bostwick. The Freshman class helped to sell the tickets. Our exams came in january--our first in high school. The dances given by the Juniors and Sophomores were very successful. These parties gave us ideas and increased our anxiety for our own. At last came our party. It was held in April, 1925, and was attended by almost all of the members of the school. Class night and graduation were the last big events of the year. At these times we realized that in three more years we, too, would be getting our diplomas-if we passed our Freshman year. SOPHOMORE YEAR The beginning of our Sophomore year was just the opposite of our Freshman year, in that we, the Sophomores, made others fnamely, the Freshmenj feel small and did to them as had been done to us. After the opening of school and the beginning of work, class elections were held. Harold Littlefield was elected president, Louise Richter, vice-president, Miriam Lent, secretary, and Estelle Morgan, treasurer. This year Leona Hawkins entered our ranks. This year, too, Miss Winifred Bostwick left and Miss Grace Wilson became teacher of English and French. 15 The hike was held in October, 1925. This time we held the reins of the party and we didn't check them. Possibly we overdid the job, but our victims, the present Juniors, are still living. The Hallowe'en Dance was the next social event on the program. The seniors were the hosts and hostesses. They presented prizes to the wearers of the prettiest, funniest, and most original costumes. Just as classes quieted down the High School plays were given, in which we had no part. Examinations were taken and were followed by a period of hard work. The Juniors gave their party and about a month later we gave ours. It was at this party that Campbell Moore introduced a new foot-twister while holding a plate of cake in his hand. The plate did not break. In April, 1926, the Boys, and Girls' Glee Clubs gave their first operettas, coached by Miss Maxon and Miss Hosp. The operetta given by the girls was "Lady Frances" and the one given by the boys was "Freshies." A part of the proceeds was given to the Washington Trip Fund, and the rest to the Instrument Fund. JUNIOR YEAR We entered the school as Juniors with a decided decrease in number. Of the forty that had enlisted there were but half left. This year a new teacher, Miss Imogene Cook, took the place of Miss Mary Bostwick. The class elections were held and Thomas O'Neil was elected president of our class, Italo Rolandelli, vice-president, Louise Richter, secretary, and Leona Hawkins, treasurer. This year we had no special part in the hike-we just went along to watch the fun. The plays were given in December, 1926, by the Juniors and Seniors. This was the first time we had a part in the program. The Juniors gave "The Twig of Thorn," the Seniors gave "Much Ado About Nothing." The plays, coached by Miss Hosp, were very successful. The Examinations intervened between the plays and class parties. After the class parties in April, 1927, the Glee Clubs gave their operettas. The boys gave "Cleopatra" and the girls, "Heartless House." On Class Night in 1927 we, the present seniors, had quite a prominent part. We decorated the auditorium and gave and received knocks. At this time a Junior, Dorothy Kientz, won a five-dollar gold piece because she was the best classical student in the High School. SENIOR YEAR At the beginning of our Senior year nineteen students entered the class. We had two new-comers-Albert Szekely and Olive Toner. Class elections were held and Harold Littlefield for the third time was elected President. Italo Rolandelli was elected vice-president and Lona Hawkins, secretary and treasurer. Mary McDonald was elected historian. Miss Hosp was our class dean. The Senior Hallowe'en Dance vas given. This was the first social event at which our school dance orchestra played. The second time they played was for the High School Play which was given by pupils showing the greatest ability irrespective of classes. The play "Alice Sit-by-the-Fire" by Sir James M. Barrie was a great success. Two of the bright lights in it were seniors-Estelle Morgan and Harold Littlefield. 16 Miss Grace Wilson left in October and Mrs. Edith Burton became teacher of English. Examinations at mid-year were a little more important for some of us than those of the years before. . This year Albert Szekely stood out as a second Don Marquis. Among others Dorothy Nann is to be congratulated for the business-like manner with which she got together the properties for four of our school productions. In March, 1928, a district contest in typewriting was held at Morristown in which Leona Hawkins won first place and Louise Richter third. At the Public Speaking Contest, Olive Toner, a senior, won the second prize. Olive was also the editor-in-chief of the Green Owl, a bi-weekly paper edited by the Seniors with the help of Miss Wilson, Mrs. Burton, and Miss Markham. Ruth Walker, another one of our class, was elected editor-in-chief of "Shadows" Italc- Rolandelli was elected art editor for the second year. This year, Harold Littlefield, our class president, was elected "The Best Citizen" of the High School. Our Washington trip was one of the most important events of the year. We sin- cerely thank Mr. and Mrs. Frederick N. Brown, students, and people of Verona, for their generous help in making our trip possible. The operettas were given in May. They were "The Nifty Shop" and 'fWind- mills of Holland," coached by Mrs. Thomas Corrigan, the former Miss Maxon, and Miss Hosp. Dancing followed for which the music was furnished by the school orchestra. Thus our four High School years have rolled by. We have made mistakes and caused more than one disturbance, but we hope the faculty will forget these and we hope also that the following classes will have noble records and strive continuously to make our High School the best. H. MAC. '28 THE WASHINGTON TRIP For weeks before the great day arrived the excited Seniors discussed the eagerly awaited trip to Washington. The "Merrie Monthn of March seemed to drag along as we patiently CPI awaited April 12. Eventually the big day arrived in all its glory! Waving'a fond farewell to our parents and friends who had gathered at the Market Street Station to see us off, we glee- fully boarded the train for our nation,s Capital. At last we were off - off for Washington! Time passed speedily on the train as we played cards, read guide books, and hummed popular tunes. Interest ran high as we sped over the Mason-Dixon Line, and as we passed through the noble city of Baltimore, but in the main our thoughts were at- tempting to form a picture of the great "White City." Arriving at the beautiful Union Station at Washington, we were conducted to the Hotel Driscoll where we hurriedly ate a delicious dinner, after which we rushed to the incomparable Library of Congress. Here we spent an hour examining the divers col- lections, admiring the beautiful mural decorations, Statuary and bronzes. In a state of mental breathlessness-so impressed were we by the beauty, the grandeur of it all- we left the Library. 17 Returning to the hotel several of us resolved Qas had classes of previous yearsj to stay up all night. Assembling in the room of one of the girls, we enjoyed a "feast,,' after which we changed our minds about sleep. fGinger ale is, perhaps, an inducer of sleep-who can tell?j A few of us arose early the next morning with a View to enjoying a pre-breakfast stroll about the Capital. The morning was crisply cool and our walk proved refreshingly brisk-wherefore our appetites were considerably whetted, much to the astonishment and dismay of our less ambitious fand much less hungryj classmates. X After breakfast we were conducted to the Bureau of Printing and Engraving where we saw United States currency of all denominations, and stamps of all kinds, being printed. Following this we visited the Pan-American Building Qwhich has the reputa- tion of being the most beautiful building-architecturally speaking-in the worldjg the Smithsonian Institute fwhere we saw the "state" gowns of the Presidents' wives, models of the original aeroplane, the flag that inspired the writing of our national anthem, and things of like interestjg the White House fwhich of course needs no explanationljg and finally, the Capitol itself where we saw the House in session. Likewise the afternoon was passed in a beautiful way. We visited the Arlington Cemetery-where are buried our national military heroes. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Amphitheatre, and the Lincoln Memorial are very impressive sights. That same evening we went as the guests of our chaperones, Mr. and Mrs. Brown, to the new Fox Theatre where we were delightfully entertained for a few hours. Returning to the hotel we danced for a time, 'played cards, and perhaps a few of us even flirted-who can tell?-and retired for the night, each girl breathing to herself the old refrain "So this is the end of a perfect day!" The climax of our trip was reached the next morning when we visited George Washingtoifs mansion at Mount Vernon. Here we spent a delightful hour acquainting ourselves with the various rooms of the stately old home. Returning, we passed through Alexandria where we visited the far famed Carlyle House, the Washington Masonic Society Headquzarters, and the ancient church where Washington fand later, General Robert E. Leej worshipped. Saturday afternoon was spent in various Ways. A few of our number visited the Washington Monument, others visited the celebrated Botanical Gardens, still others went shopping. At last the time came for our departure. Sadly we bade farewell to our hotel roomsg more sadly did we board the train for Newark. The trip was most pleasant on the way home. Several Seniors from Tarrytown were in our train and each of our number enjoyed himself making new acquaintances, forming new friendships. NVe will never forget this trip. Years may come-and go--and leave their marks on all our brows, but ever-ever--shall we cherish in our hearts the memory of this wonderful, unforgettable, unsurpassable trip to the Capital of the United States. O. T. '28 18 WILL OF THE HELEN M. HOSP CLASS In the name of God, amen. We, the Helen M. Hosp Class, being in sound health of body, and of disposing mind and memory, do make and publish this, our last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills, by us at any time made.

Under the enthusiastic and able guidance of our President, Mrs. McEwan, a Varied and in- teresting program was provided for each meeting, and it is to be regretted that more parents did not avail themselves of the opportunity of listening to the enlightening and inspirational talks that were given by the various speakers. The main subject of our discussion has been Vocational Guidance-an attempt to help the boy and girl to choose their life's vocation at the earliest possible moment, so that in High School or College, they may take suitable courses to prepare for that end and thus avoid the loss of time occasioned by drifting from one thing to another before finding the work best suited to their temperament and mental equipment. The opening meeting of the Fall was held on October 19th and was largely in the nature of an organization meeting. Mrs. McEwan outlined the purposes of the organization, which are to secure cooperation between the parents and teachers, and to bring the work of the school before the citizens of the town. Mr. Brown and Mr. Crane also spoke on the value of the Association to the parents. After the busi- ness of the evening was disposed of, the meeting became informal, and an opportunity was given to the parents to become acquainted with each other and with the teachers. The second meeting, held on November 16th, was characterized by the able dis- cussion by Mrs. Prince of the High School Faculty on the subject, "The Need of Vocational Guidance," emphasizing this need as the answer of every child's question, "What am I going to be when I grow up?,' and outlining the three means of guidance as, flj Ability to become economically independent, Q21 Good statesmanshipg Q31 The wise use of leisure. Mr. Morelock, County Superintendent of Schools, s-poke along the same line, stressing the fact that parents must be conscious of the limitations of their children, and conscious of the things that they can do best. At the third meeting, January 18th, Allen Cullimore, of the School of Engineering at Newark, gave an informal talk on "Fundamentals of a College Education," pointing out that the primary use of education is character building, and that boys and girls should be given a college education only when they can appreciate its value, and will work to mould what they learn into the formation of a true and upright character. The fourth meeting was held on March 21st. Through the courtesy of Mr. Crane, an evening session of the school was arranged. This permitted the parents to see their children at their daily tasks. There were classes in physical culture for boys and girls held in the Gymnasium. After recitations in the various classrooms, the entire school met for Assembly. The evening gave the parents an opportunity of viewing the work that the school is attempting to do for the pupils. The Association assisted the seniors with a card party on March 16, the proceeds helping to defray the expenses of the Washington trip. It is a pleasure to record the helpful spirit of cooperation that has been shown by all the members of the High School staff in making the meetings of the Association a success. WALTER M,RCNAUGHTEN, Sec'rc'fary. 24 ALUMNI NOTES The outstanding accomplishment of the Alumni during the past year was a de- cisive defeat of the V. H. S. varsity basketball team. The old and decrepit graduates are quite proud of this feat. ' The entire class of 1913 is engaged in the ice business and doing very well. His name is Paul Zingg. Of the most recent graduates we get the following report: Laura Hodgson and Ruth Ellis are at the N. J. College for Women, Leslie Eaton and Cecil Roche at Brown University, Amy Youngling, Margaret Lewis, Winifred LaRue, Iris Rodgers, and Francis Hodgson in businessg and Eleanor Noyes and Dorotha Vfheat at Normal School. We are glad to announce the return to our town of Bessie F. Burnett '17 after an absence of some years. We are well represented in the oiiices of the Public Service by Wallace Haight, Ronald Brooks, Archie Sandine, Stephen Coslick, and August Carrell. Two engagements have recently been announced: Ronald Brooks '24 to Margaret Starkey '24 and Edith Crawford '19 to Adolph Heyden. Howard Crawford '21 has just returned from a Mediterranean cruise. Dr. Leon Pearman '18, during convalescence from an operation, visited town from Detroit during the year.

The Freshmen were decorated with signs and ribbons. Their presi- dent, LeRoy Lum, wearing a thing which resembled a baby dress for a night gownj, was pushed up Bloomfield Avenue in a baby carriage. He certainly did look cute! When we arrived, games were played while Freshies gathered wood for the fire. Shortly after dark the initiations began. After a gay time in this manner we all parted for home and bed, promising to be present at the next hike. THE HALLOWE'EN PARTY In the latter part of October, the Seniors gave a Hallowe'en Mask Party for the school. 'Mid funny tramps, flirty seniors, and gay gypsies, the party got under way and soon the room was a whirling mass of color, while strains of music issued from one corner of the room. There was fortune telling, a Paul Jones, games and dancing. The party broke up about twelve and we all started home after spending an enjoyable evening. THE SOPHOMORE PARTY On March 9, the Sophomores successfully entertained the school. As each one came in, he was given a colored ribbon. When all was ready, contests were held be- tween the different teams. Of course, there was dancing between the games. The High School Dance Orchestra played, and everyone thought the music fine. Cake and ice cream were served. The party disbanded early as the next day was a school day. PUBLIC SPEAKING CONTEST On March 30, the annual Public Speaking Contest was held under the direction of Miss Helen Hosp. Eight speakers were chosen from the entire school to enter the contest. The participants were Olive Toner, Ruth Ashe, Marie Sonn, Marjorie Smith, Charlotte Wheaton, Bertha Hodgson, Sam Scola and Fred Madrigyn. Marjorie Smith won the first prize of 5610, and Olive Toner, the second of SS. A quartet from the orchestra played between the selections. THE FRESHMAN PARTY On Friday, April 27, the Freshman class, not to be surpassed by the upper classes, gave a school party with the assistance of Miss Cook. As eight o'clock approached we found it raining very hard, but what more could Freshmen expect? At the door of the High School various colored ribbons were secured by the guests, each color representing a team. When the teams had assembled in the auditorium, Mr. Goeltz started relay races. The floor was very slippery and many tumbles were witnessed. As yet we haven't made our decision as to whether the blue or green teams won. Following the games there was dancing followed by a Paul Jones. At ten o'clock refreshments were 28 served. At eleven, we started home, only to find it still raining as hard as ever. The Freshmen's first party was over and we have decided from all reports that it was a great success. TARANTELLA On Saturday, April 28, twenty pupils, with Mr. and Mrs. McEwan as chaperons, were guests of the Mask and Wig Club of the University of Pennsylvania at its annual production given at the Metropolitan Opera House. This year's show was a musical comedy, "Tarantella," which portrayed the efforts of "The Instigation Pictures Incf' to make a realistic motion picture in an old ruin in the hills of Sicily. "Instigation Pictures Inc." has a very difficult time getting its pic- ture because of the intervention both of the Mafian Brigands and of the censors, Al Stone and Prunella Pinkerton-a purity leaguer. Nevertheless all complications are swept aside in the end and we find that, although the company was unaware of it, the camera had been picturing all its troubles and that it has made a truly realistic picture. All who attended are grateful to the Mask and Wig Club for a very delightful afternoon. ALPHABETICAL GLYMPSES IN V. H. S. A's for Anita on whom we all dote. B is for Billy-a Junior of note.

Formerly, two plays were given, one by the Senior class and the other by the Junior class, this year, however, it was decided that there should be one play for which the cast should be picked from the whole school. This created more interest in the plays as not only the members of the two upper classes but every member of the school was interested. The name of the play was "Alice Sit-By-The-Fire," by Barrie. In this play Amy, Alice,s daughter, has been taking care of the home, and of her brother, Cosmo, while her mother and father were away in India. When Mrs. Gray returns to her home she is unhappy because her children do not seem to love her. One evening Mr. Rollo, an old friend of Colonel and Mrs. Gray, comes to visit them. Amy and Ginevra, Amy's friend, overhear the conversation between Mr. Rollo and Mrs. Gray. The girls, with imaginations heightened by too frequent visits to the theater, immediately determine that the two have fallen in love. Amy is persuaded by Ginevra to go to Mr. Rollo's home and demand the letters which her mother has written to him. She tells Amy that she knows there are letters because in all the plays they've seen, there have been. Amy undertakes the task and approaches the home of Mr. Rollo. There she is met by Richardson, who takes care of Mr. Rollo,s apartment. After a short discussion Amy meets Mr. Rollo. Immediately she asks for the letters and Mr. Rollo, very much astonished, asks for an explnation. She tries to explain but suddenly visitors are an- nounced. Not wishing to be seen, Amy hides in a closet. She has often seen this done in plays. Two characters enter the apartment of Mr. Rollo, they are Colonel and Mrs. Gray. Mrs. Gray soon discovers that Amy has hidden in the closet and tries to conceal it from her husband. While he is not looking she pulls Amy from the closet and pretends that her daughter has just arrived. The colonel, however, also discovers that Amy had hidden in the closet and asks for an explanation. The Grays leave the apartment and when they reach home Mrs. Gray explains the matter to her husband. Mr. Rollo apologizes for having caused such a disturbance in their family. As everything is made clear, we are led to suppose that Mr. Rollo and Amy will not remain just friends, but will soon be happily married. 30 The cast was as follows: Alice, . ,... . Colonel Gray ,.,.

A game with Central High, Paterson, followed, in which we lost 6 to 0. This game was followed by two Barringer High School games in which we were also unable to come out victors. The scores wereg first game, 2 to Og second game, 3 to 1. The soccer team ended the season by playing Montclair High School to whom we also paid tribute by the score of 2 to 1. It will be noticed that all the schools with which the soccer team competed are much larger than ours. Taking this into consideration, the teamys showing was really very good. Since few members will be lost by graduation, we have a good start on a team for next year. W. FISMER ,29 32 BASKETBALL Cn March 2 Verona High School closed a successful season although the final game was lost to Caldwell by the score of 27-25. The game was very close as the score shows and required an extra period before Caldwell was able to win. During the past season Verona won seven and lost five games. This is very good when the size of the schools played is taken into consideration. However, even if so many games had not been won this would have been a successful season because of the enjoyment which it brought to Coach Goeltz, the players, and the spectators. The high scorer of the year was Captain Tip O'Neil, with Marsted a close second. The points each player scored are as follows: O'Neil, 138g Marsted, 85g Haight, 743 Scola, 85 Lewis, 8g Sandin, 205 Dox, 63 Van Orden, 4g Littlefield, 25 Freedman, 2.

"This is the last place I'll try tonight," he said to himself as he entered the small office of a lottery company. "Well, young man, what can you do?" This question was asked by stern Mr. Perkins, manager of the lottery company. "Why, I can do anything," was Harold's eager reply. "Good! Then you will start tomorrow for New York. It is your job to advertise our company, by getting the winning numbers of the chance tickets. Then we will supposedly give you the S25,000g you will advertise your luck in all the best news- papers, and then secretly return the money to usf, The agreement having been settled, Harold started for New York the next morning. From there he was to go up to Boston, and so on up the Atlantic coast to the largest Cltles. He had been in New York a week, and a great many chances had been sold. He received the winning number and the S25,000, and then he advertised his luck in the newspapers. After a few days he returned the money to the company. Harold decided to do a little sight seeing in New York before he made his trip to Boston. He was leisurely making his way along Fifth Avenue, when the girl walking in front of him attracted his attention. Where had he seen her before? Who was she? Momentarily his mind refused to work and then-ah! how could he forget the idol of his boyhood days? And instantly the old forgotten love stirred anew within him. "Pardon, aren't you Doris Barton?" he said smiling and looking at her inquisitively. "Why, Harold Graham, I never thought I'd see you again. Where have you been keeping yourself? And say, I saw your picture in the paper this morning with a long account about your winning S25,000. Gee! I bet you feel rich, don't you?" "A-rather," said Harold sheepishly. This was the beginning of their happiness and after a few months in each other's company they decided to become engaged, not, however, until Harold had confessed to Doris that he was really very poor, and that he had had to return the 525,000 to the company. But money, fortunately, wasn't the source of Doris's love. The next morning Mr. Perkins received a telephone call, and an angry voice in- formed him, that in event the 525,000 was not turned over to the person who had held the winning number in the last drawing, by the next day he would be exposed in all the principal newspapers. 35 The next day Harold went to Doris's house and joyously cold her that the firm had made him a present of the 525,000 in appreciation of his good work. He did not see the twinkle in her eyes, and he did not learn the true reason for the company's sudden generosity until after they were married.

'28 36 if , 'f 3 FT fu GIRLS' GLEE CLUB In September, 1927, the Girls' Glee Club was divided into three sectionsg one meet- ing on Monday, one on Wednesday and the last on Friday. Miss Maxon found this necessary because of our growing numbers. The Monday Club elected Mary McDonald President and Dorothy Kientz Secretaryg the Wednesday Club chose Muriel Collins President and Gertrude Carlson Secretaryg and the Friday Club elected Anita Bartholomew President and Louise Richter Secretary. The members have sung on several different occasions throughout the year. On the day before Christmas a number of boys and girls sang carols in various parts of the town and then returned for breakfast at about 8 o'clock. In March, when evening classes were held, our Club entertained the students of the school and the Parent- Teacher Association with a well-known selection. Then, on May 11, the annual operetta was sung. "The Windmills of Holland" was given by the Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs combined, while only the girls took part in "The Nifty Shopf' Success has been due largely to our director,s guidance. 37 A notice about the first meeting of the clubs after the spring vacation was signed bv "Mrs. Corrigan." It was a surprise to many to learn that Miss Maxon had assumed that name on April 7. THE BOYS' GLEE CLUB The Boys' Glee Club of Verona High School is composed of twenty-eight selected members. Early in the year we elected the following officers: Thomas O'Neil, Presi- dentg Allan Marsted, Vice-Presidentg and Irvine Moffat, Secretary. At the evening session of the High School in March we sang two numbers, "Pale in the Amber West" and "The Three Jolly Sailor Boys." P The Glee Club endeavored to secure the Princeton Glee Club to give a performance in Verona, but as the attempt was unsuccessful we decided to present an operetta in con- junction with the Girls' Glee Club. Soon after Easter rehearsals for the operetta began and the production proved a great success mainly through the efforts of our music in- structor, Mrs. Corrigan. Leading male roles were taken by Thomas O'Neil, Carlton Camarata, Myles Jacob, and LeRoy Hedden. Many of the other boys were in the chorus, appearing as the sons of wealthy Dutch farmers. l. V. '30 Secretary. 38 5 THE HIGH SCHOOL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA Under the able guidance of Mrs. Corrigan, our director, Verona High School had for the past year the finest symphony orchestra ever known in the history of the school. Our instrumentation has been greatly enlared, including first violins, second violins, viola, obligato violin, clarinet, first trumpet, second trumpet, E-flat alto saxophone, C melody saxophone, trombone, drums, tenor banjo, and piano. For the first time in our history we attempted the great classics, namely: Beethoven, Handel, Bach, Brahms, Gounod and Haydn. Our later studies have included modern compositions. The school is very proud of the orchestra since it forms an inestimable part of our school life. The following oiiicers were elected: Frederick Lange, president, Mildred Noback, vice-president, Bertha Van Doren, secretary and treasurer, Salvador Camarata, librarian. F. L.

F. Corrigan during October, 1928. The orchestra was introduced to the school when it played selections from its repertoire frather limitedj at the Senior HalloWe'en Dance. So satisfactorily did the band perform that it was called upon to play at the High School Plays, Sophomore Party, Washington Trip Benefit, Freshmen Party and the School Operetta. 40 Tbc' Sfzlzlvnf Cllllflfil Tbc' Hi-Y Club -vias, N ..2e.': . no 0 :"g:1.-zggiggggzgg va " 323.1 iff' 5 nil D Q S J" 1 s gh S0 r I N 1 6 .bOg,,.'e 0. ul, 'J M V1"E?32 Q32-:fe :F P ' i- r .,- 2 63 ilu"--.,a .I ., 1 1- , ,ar-,.,, 1.-.QI I 53:35, Q 330,59 Pflyowi v . .
