Rain falls gently, softly, swiftly on all nature
She dips her slender fingers into tulip cups of every hue,
Like a little mouse she slips between each thirsty plant,
Christening each with her clean, pure, coolness.
She is beautiful, this Goddess from the heavens.
H. G. '34.
Fog slips, lurks, slides
Through city streets.
Enveloping all in her path
Leaving the city quiet and blank,
Like a shroud over a corpse.
H. G. '34.
The friendliness of Nature is strong. Here everyone
has his place. Her privileges are for us allg she knows no
partiality. In Nature, the shy make the intimate acquain-
tance of the bold, the weak with the strong, and the foe
with the friend. Prejudices cease and quarrels are forgot-
At times, Nature seems cruel and unjust, but the
mother of all living things has made plans for us all. No
matter how unjust her actions may seem to us, remember,
she knows no partiality, we are all her children. In the
wildness of Nature everyone is at his best, for kinship is the

THE STUDENT COUNCIL
The Student Council consists of
two representatives from each
home room, a boy and a girl. In
addition to the representatives,
the class presidents take part in
the proceedings of the organiza-
This year, the Student Council
set out with very definite plans to-
ward one goalg namely to amelio-
rate conditions around the school.
Suggestions were made by several
members of the student body re-
garding improvements in the ap-
pearance of the school building.
Plans for forming a Junior Red
Cross were discussed. With the
help of Mr. Crane, our adviser,
and of the faculty and student
body, we feel that we have accom-
plished a great deal.
The officers are: President,
Milton Nanny Vice President,
Louis Millbauerg Secretary-Treas-
urer, Anne Gulla.
We feel certain that the Student
Council of this year may be con-
sidered a very definite unit to-
ward the building up of a future

THE FOUR CLASSES
Where will all the freshmen go
After they have completed this year?
They will all be ready to show
How the sophomores learn to sneer.
Where will the lazy sophomores go?
Into the junior class they'll embark,
They're pretty smart by this time you know,
Miss Cook's room is where they're likely to park.
And Where will the jolly juniors ascend?
Up to the heights, now they're nearing' the end.
Into the best of all the classes
Here's hoping everyone in this class passes.
Now for the seniors and where will they be?
Out in the world far from you, far from me.
Before they go, give them a rousing cheer.
Good-bye, dear seniors, we'll miss you next year.

BOYS GLEE CLUB
The Boys' Glee Club consisting
of thirty-five boys, conducted by
Mr. Schill, our music instructor,
has had a very interesting and en-
joyable time this year.
The purpose of this club is that
the boys study and enjoy better
We have participated in many
events such as taking part in the
Concert, which the Music Depart-
ment gave in May, entertained the
members of the Board of Educa-
tion in the high school cafeteria
in November, and last but not
least, helped out in Assembly by
singing our favorite songs.
The officers are as follows:
Claude Valentine Jr., Leaderg C.
Dressel, Secretaryg Wallace Mack-

We are sorry that a few of the
boys and Anna Gulla are going to
leave us this year, but we hope
that they will still continue with
the same spirit that they have

The Verona High School has an
orchestra of which it may Well be
proud. This musical organization
under the splendid and able guid-
ance of our music director, Mr.
Schill, has improved its playing
and has developed in its field of
talent more rapidly this year than
ever before in its entire history.
All of the members in this or-
ganization are musically talented

so well talented that, on very short
notice, they are able to render
solos. A few of these are as fol-
lows: Edward Brombach, cellog

is rapidly passing, the orchestra

are held, some of these being in

The purpose of the 'Girls' Ath-
letic Club is to encourage partici-
pation in athletics and in sports-
During the past year, five bas-
ketball teams played in the intra-
mural round robin tournament.
The teams were captained by Val-
eska Jacobsen, Dorothy Tobin,
Virginia Dunn, Marian Teare, and
Theodora Blake. Valeska Jacob-
sen's team won the tournament,
defeating every other team.
As a fitting climax to our bas-
ketball season our Club sponsored
a Basketball Sports Day with
girls from Caldwell High School,
on Saturday, March 25. Twenty-
four girls from each school partic-
ipated. After a series of basket-
ball games, social dancing ended

The Soccer team started the
season with about forty fellows
turning out for practice. At the
first meeting in the cafeteria,
James Swallow was elected captain
and Claude Valentine Jr., man-
ager. The first string of men was
picked after a few hard practices
and suits were given to the follow-
ing fellows: Swallow, Ridsdale,
Witte, Di Bella, C. Dressel, Ong,
Newton, Morehouse, Ellis, Holds-
worth, Carroll, Truex, Clover.
Ashe. The team, although it
played a heavy schedule, showed
up remarkably well winning four,
losing four, and tying two. We
were defeated by very strong
teams: Kearny, Harrison, and
East Side Patterson, although we
defeated Kearny once.
Next year's prospects look even
better because we are only losing
six men by graduation. These
places will be filled by players
who put up a good fight for po-
sitions this year.

The basketball team was led
through a fifty-fifty season by the
able coaching of "Doc" Goeltz. Al-
though the team did not reach the
winning streak displayed three
years ago, it showed a decided in-
crease in victories and it can be
said that they did a splendid job
in holding up Verona's standard
The quintet was ably led by the
shooting guard, Captain "Jim',
Swallow. The other members of
the Maroon and White squad were
"Jake" Ginsberg, cagey dribbling
guard: George Crawford, steady
forwardg "Hobie" Earle, pot shot
forwardg "Clink" Littlefield, eagle
eye forwardg and back-board,
"Doc" Goeltz made a statement
saying that he was proud to enter
the boys in competition with some
of the best basketball teams in the
state. The managership was fill-
ed by Carl Witte.

With the baseball season hardly
under way when this Writeup goes
to press it is still unknown what
goals the team will attain. The
team has been developing fast al-
though it is hampered by rainy
So far the team has played only
three games. One of these was
the severe trouncing our outfit
gave Newark Academy which was
supposed to have a strong team.
Only one game was lost and all
signs point to a very good season.
Coach Wilkin, our able instructor,
has also succeeded in scheduling
games for the second string.
The members of the team are as
follows: Di Bella, Swallow, and
Carr, pitchersg Ginsberg and Di
Bella, catchers 5 Swallow and New-
ton, first baseg Crawford, second
baseg Newton, Ginsberg, and Di
Bella, third baseg MacDonald,
shortstopg Ong, left fieldg Owen,
center fieldg C. Dressel, Pooley,

by Edwin Kautzmann.
The Golf Team banged into
what may be a pushover season.
First they battered Barringer, the
Newark City Champions, so that
the urban chaps were swinging at
violets and boundary markers,
then the team buried our tradi-
tional rivals from the wilderness
of the Caldwell Plateau, in the
sand traps at Green Brook Coun-
Throughout their games, tee
and fairway, craftsmanship has
characterized the action of this
year's turf digging machine,
which is composed of Clarence
Littlefield, James fAgnoj DeSan-

At Doctor Goeltz's original con-
vocation, Littlefield, who is a vet-
eran of four years of Whitehorne
golf, was successfully promoted
for captain and manager. Clar-
ence triumphed with a fourth
place in the New Jersey State In-
terscholastic tournament, at Hope-
well, last spring. Further, besides
holding the record low score for
high school players, on the Green
Brook course, Littlefield has made
a clean sweep of eighteen of twen-
ty matches, in the last three years,

GIRLS' GLEE CLUB
The Girls' Glee Club this year started out with much fervor and
zeal, and much to the satisfaction of everyone, has continued this fine
spirit throughout the year.
In addition to the regular Glee Club, a quartet has been formed con-
sisting cf: Elsie Russell, Helen Mueser, Helen Jackson, and Frances
Cebello-alternate, Hildegarde Derwig.
At the Christmas Concert, Anne Sfaight and Helen Mueser sang solos
which were very well rendered.
The Glee Club has been called on to sing at various outside benefits
and the cooperation of the girls was greatly appreciated.
Miss Lewis, our director, has been the incentive and we appreciate
her efforts in helping us have a Glee Club that we are proud of.
Cne of the high spots of the year was the opportunity of the quartet
to sing cver Station WAAM.
THE FRESHMAN GIRLS, GLEE CLUB
The Freshman Girls' Glee Club, which has been meeting every Fri-
day morning in Room 4 under the guiding hand of Miss Lewis, the music
director, has been progressing very rapidly. We hope to sing in assembly
in the near future.
The officers are as follows: Jean Zingg, presidentg Betty Hughes,
vice president, Eileen Roberts, secretaryg and Jule Ann Barber, librarian.
Next year we will greatly strengthen the High School Girls' Glee Club
both in numbers and in talent. We sincerely hope that the Freshman Girls'
Glee Clubs in the future will have an enjoyable and educational year like,
if not better than, the one we have just spent in Room 4 under the in-
struction of so great and capable a leader.
