To him wc owe the splendid school plays pro- duced each year under his supervision. Such excel- lent plavs have been successful because of his hard work and cooperation. It has indeed been a pleas- ure to know and work with Mr. Butterworth. Page Five Ii. HIYRMAN ANUI-'RSON Science IIIfI,liN Ii. BATCI IIQLDICR Art IQUITH M.

Some 116 gangling young- sters, still wet behind the ears, appeared, ap- parently forthe sole purpose of plaguing the teachers for the succeeding four years. After reorienting ourselves and being discovered, either lost, strayed or stolen in various nooks and crannies in the dark, dim recesses of the long mysterious halls of V.H.S. we held the first in a long series of class meetings. VVe elected Donald Graham president on his admirable record in Iunior High. Marjorie Sterett, the editor-in-chief of the book you're now reading, was elected and served us as vice-president, and Imogene Garrett held down the job of secretary-treasurer, while Mr. Wilkin acted as adviser. After Houndering around in classes and greatly amusing the "superior" upper classmen, by December we had found ourselves and were participating in the activities of drama, music, athletics-a bit feebly, but neverthe- less, participating. We were also known as sterling members of the very popular detention club. In March the then well settled and world-wise Freshmen put on the Sports Dance which proved a great success because of the hard work spent on its prep- aration. Page Eight President .... Warren Schleicher Vice-President . . . Michael Tucci Secretary-Treasurer . Claire La Rue The following year, having struggled up one rung of the long and hard ladder to graduation we contributed to many of the activities around the school, of course we did not let the golden opportunity pass of scofling at the "dumb fresh." VVe were well represented in the school play, having two of our more able members in major roles. A sport dance held on March 2 was well attended. Our president was again Donald Graham, vice-president, Florence Ridsdaleg secretary-treasurer, Charles Sweeney. We were fortunate in having Mr. Iolmson as our class adviser back in the almost forgot- ten years of IQQ8-QQ. Wheii our class returned to the be-col- umned portals of V.H.S. in the fall of iogo we had finally grown into our long pants- we were upper-classmen! Oh bliss, oh joy- we could hardly believe it.

As the fall wore on and we were worn down by care- fully conserving our remaining energies we were able to enter many of the extracur- ricular activities V.H.S. offers. Athletics, music, drama, and art would hardly have succeeded without our help. CI can hear all the alumni who were seniors turning over in their graves and muttering 'Ch yeah."j The newly-formed football team was sup- ported by the abilities of several of our classmates. Donald Graham was re-elected president for a third term, lack DeCamp served as vice-president, and Betty Coleman as secretary-treasurer. The class, now lun- iors, followed the time-honored custom in V.H.S. and spon red the famed "Iunior Prom." Inm r fo ear in V.H.S. we came into fin ta'e in the metamorphosis ie 'gh oohtudent. Might I digress o ex l n s metamorphosis for the bene- lit future seekers after the truth who n ck specific examples. This biological nge is accompanied and identified by four sta es in the methods of arriving at school, dlasses, or any appointment. Fresh- men, when late, run their very legs off Cthereby becoming prospects for Mr. .iSmith's track teamj, in order to arrive at their destination on time, the Sophomores shaving seldom actually been late, and hav- ing become more sophisticated, slow down to a mixed slow, very slow, lope, the Iunior, thoroughly inured to the vicissitudes of time, no longer attempts to force his now work- worn and debilitated form beyond the rate of a walk. The climax of the course of the change is found in the form of the Senior, who, thoroughly at home, and on the good side of the teachers and Mr. Crane the hopcsj does not even try to hurry. In fact he does not even try to arrive. He simply turns around and contentedly ambles home. After getting down to business in our class meeting under the watchful and slight- ly disgusted eye of Miss Howell, our ad- viser, we elected Warren Schleicher pres- ident, Mike Tucci, vice-president, and Claire La Rue secretary-treasurer. Around about Christmas time we sponsored a Semi- Formal dance. Many seniors contributed to the play, "The Lady Electsf' sponsored in Ma by the Dramatic Club. In addition to filling many of the posts behind the scenes sev- eral seniors added their acting abilities: Warren Yates and Imogene Carrett starred, supported by many others, of whom the fol- lowing were from our class: Don Peck, Scott A Burnett, and Albert Kaplus. The presidlent of the club was none other than the charming and popular Mary Lou Con- over. Many of the other positions requiring executive ability were held by Seniors, who, if we might pat ourselves on the back, rac- tically ran the school, with some small as- sistance from teachers and stray members of the other classes!! One of the outstanding accomplishments of our class was the founding and publish- ing of the "White Hornet," the first printed newspaper V.H.S. ever boasted. After the idea was first conceived of by Hyde and Krohn, our Damon and Pythias, almost all the work was carried on by the seniors on the paper staff who labored long and hard to make the venture the success it was. An- other publication which was sponsored in 1941 by members of the Senior class was the literary publication "The Bookworm."

VVe chose to be governed again by Parker Newell as pres- ident, Norman VVelsh as vice-president, and Elaine Bentley as secretary-treasurer. The members of this class can truly be proud, for they have had many students who excelled not only in their studies but also have contributed to athletics, drama, music, art, and the sciences as well as playing major parts in social functions of Verona High School. To speak of only a few, we were represented by Ruth Feltham, Eddie Rog- ers, and Arthur Smith in the school play, "The Lady Electsf' this year. ln the Held of sports we had George Klippel, Norman VVciner, and Frank Zink on the football squad. VVe were represented on the basket- ball court this winter by Bob Black and Norman VVciner. The track team was help- fully aided by the presence of Bob Harris, Arthur Iaeob, and Frank Zink, and Bob Black was one of the pitchers for the base- ball team. Ralph Cestone was active in the field of science. Isle is especially interested in bird life. A few other athletes who were outstand- ing in their respective fields are Parker New- .ffyl N-.f- , N.,- President . . . Parker Newell Vice-President . Norman Welsh Secretary-Treasurer . Elaine Bentley ell, one of the co-captains, and Frank Bed- ford, also of our golf team, while Betty Bea- ton is our Olympic swimming champion of future years. Another achievement of one of our stu- dents, Charles Feltham, was fact that he represented Verona High ol in the Ili-Y Convention at Trenton on April eighteenth and nineteenth. This meeting was known as the model Legislature. VVe have an undisputable reputation for originality, which shows itself at our very popular dances. Remember "The Three Little Fishes," and "Confucius Say," also the unforgettable prom given this year by the Iuniors. Next year we, the Iunior Class, intend to carry on our hard work, both in studies and in extra activities, and make Verona High School truly proud of the Class of ,42.

It was at this meeting that the following officers were elected: President, Bob Field- ing, vice-president, Ray Kandelg secretary- treasurer, Ruth Stahlschmidt. Toward the end of February another class meeting was held. In the course of this meeting we finally selected March Eleventh as the date for our dance. On that night those students who came to the "Sweet- heart Swing" danced to the music of the "Walkinians." Mrs. Philipps, our class adviser, kindly consented to act as chap- cron. The Class of '43 has also helped the school in many ways. A few of the mem- bers played in the band at the football and basketball games. We have also been well represented in the Held of sports. Among those who could daily be seen out on the field for soccer were: Tom Brighton, captain-elect for next ycarg Charles Breinerg Arthur Cuancione, and Ray Kandel. Representing us on the football team were Bill Morrison, Bob Nel- son, and Sonny Vitale. Among those seen on the basketball court this winter were such stars as Charles Breiner, Sonny Vitale, and Norman VVeiner. Charles Breiner, Tom Brighton, and Ray Kandel were mem- sfjxfll ff' ' 5 pb ' BT, X I Diaz President ...... Bob Fielding Vice-President . . . Ray Kandel Secretary-Treasurer . Ruth Stahlschmidt bers of the baseball team. Richard Long and Bill Morrison participated in the track meets. Another achievement of one of the class members, Eddie Pheiffer, was that he was one of our cheerleaders this year. His most famous cheer was the "Fight Team Fight," which was never done the same way twice. This year the class of '4g had its first member in the school play. Nancy VV heal- don could have been seen many an after- noon practicing in the auditorium for her part in the play. "It Takes All Kinds Of People" VVhat would the class of '4g be like with- out Richard Long's ever-beaming face? Eddie Iung's camera certainly is quite an attraction these days.

Like every other Freshman class before, they wandered help lessly around the corridors for a good many weeks. Then, much to the relief of the upper classmen, some one noticed that the class of 1944 was beginning to settle down and become the quiet, meek, little freshmen they were expected to be. Toward the end of September the Fresh- men held their first class meeting. It was at this meeting that they chose to be gov- erned by Iohn Warner as president, Clar- ence Thyren, vice-president, and lean Bruso as secretary-treasurer. During the latter part of February the Freshmen began to be greatly excited over a coming event. They were making plans for their animal dance. Class meetings were held and the date, March Fourteenth, was finally decided upon. Iacquelin Dempsey was appointed chairman of the decorating committee, that most capably made the gym into a blue and white setting for their "Star Dust Dip." A great many of the Freslnnen helped on this committee, and on the advertising committee which was responsible for the widespread publicity throughout the school. Although there was away fwfr President . ..... John Warner Vice-President . . . Clarence Thyren Secretary-Treasurer . . Jean Bruso not a great deal of profit made from the dance a grand time was had by all. The Class of ,44 has also helped the school in many ways. Many members of the band played for the football and basket- ball games. A number of the boys have re- ported daily to the Held or gym throughout the year for practice in their particular sport. One of the most promising of these young athletes was Clen Knowles, a member of the track squad. Another great distinction which has fallen on the Freshmen is the honor of hav- ing a member of their class in the school play. Very rarely is such an opportunity given to a lower classman. This fortunate member of the class was Mary Ellen Tomp- son, who has certainly done a great job. Page Thirty-seven 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 This year the various organizations and clubs have accomplished many things worthy of notice. Perhaps one of these most known was the famous institution of our dances. Dances were given by the four classes, the Student Coun- cil, Traflie Patrol, and Dance Club. The most famous of all these dances was the annual Prom given each year by the Iunior Class. The Student Council has done a great job of guiding the students of V.ll.S. this year. Two meetings were held during the assemblv period to which everyone was invited. Many of those who came passed on some valuable suggestions which greatly aided the council to function as the student body wished. This year for the first time we have had a regular school newspaper. Under the direction of David Krohn and Robert Hyde, and Mrs. Burton as faculty adviser, the paper has been published once every three weeks. This paper has served as an outlet through which manv of the students have been able to express their views. The activity, involving by far the greatest number of students, was the concert of the com- bined Clee Clubs and Orchestra. This concert was given on the Twenty-Hfth of April in the Crove Avenue School. 2 2 2 2 2 2 52 ACTI ITIES Page Thirty-eight Student Council The 1940-41 Student Council consist- ing of twelve homeroom and ten club representatives plus three officers, was lTl0St instrumental in the school life of every Whitehorne student from the keen- est senior to the youngest freshman. As in other years, the Council acted as the student body's legislature, making the current and permanent laws and revising others. It, too, acted as the school's clearing house wherein the students could bring up their problems or suggestions, through their representatives, for dis- cussion and solution. The regular meet- ings were held Period Three each Tues- day. The ever-growing serious problem of lack of mirror facilities in both the boys' and girls' locker rooms was cleared up through the Student Council, and ad- ditional mirrors were installed early in March. Another problem over which the representatives debated was that of class elections. Prior to this year, no pro- ficient system of electing class officers had been initiated. Thus it was deemed necessary to amend the Council's con- stitution to provide for routine student voting. Two successful financial events were carried out this yearg one was an Athletic Association ticket campaign, the other the Hallowe'en dance. Louis Win- ters and Betty Beaton represented Verona at a meeting of the Suburban Conference of Student Councils. The ofhcers of the Council were: president, Louis Wintcrsg vice-president, Mike Tuccig and Secre- tary-treasurer Betty Beaton. Mr. Crane was faculty adviser. off ' LOUIS WINTERS DK Council Prcmfwif gpm Se Page Thirty-nine SHADCWS Page Forty The first cditio11 of 4'Shadows," left the presses i11 1Q21-illSlf twe11ty years ago.

This year "Shadows" has been expanded because of the unusually large senior class. Although the seniors receive more individ- ual attention than do the lower classmen, "Shadows" is of great interest to all V.ll.S. students because of the variety of activities it covers. The Dramatic Club has once again gen- erously offered the proceeds of one night's performance of the school play to aid the staff in meeting its expenses. lt is tl1c sincere hope of tl1c staff that all of you will derive enjoyment fro111 reading tl1c 1Q41 'fShadows" for 11po11 this depends the success of tl1c book.

All eyes are focused on the brilliantly lighted stage. On it Imogene Garrett plays the part of a young nurse, Wiirren Yates is a crusading doctorg Old Bill, Don's dad, is enacted by Al Kaplus, while Art Smith is a very convincing political boss. Sammy is played by Don P eek, Janet, a society leader, by Nancy Wfheal- dong Sally, a scatter brain, by Arlene Burnett, Mary, a twelve-year-old who helps Nan, by Mary Ellen Thompsong and Mirabelle by Ruth Feltham.

The high spot of the musical year was the annual concert on April zgth given by the combined Clec Clubs and the Orchestra. After the concert a dance was held for which recorded music was provided. The social activities have also included several very successful roller skating parties held at Florham Park Rink. Each partv was attended bv Hftv or more enthusiasts. The Cirls' Clee Club, under the guidance of Miss Lewis, has done some Hue work both m singing and in gaining a musical background. At the beginning of the vear the following otliccrs were elected: Florence Ridsdale, president, Pat Easton, sccretarv, and Carol Dodd and Cladys Criltcn, librarians. The club is vcrx' proud of the fact that it was represented in the All-State Chorus bv Florence Ridsdale and Iune Conrad, The Boys' Clee Club, under the direction of Mr. Edmund Schill, has enjoyed two periods of singing fboth hard work and relaxationl a week. In September Fred Schug was elected president ot this organization.

Page Forty-seven International Students' Society This year the International Stu- dents' Society, with Miss Cheuey's leadership, has had a very large membership of about sixty mem- bers. The officers elected in the first meeting of the year were: Marjorie Sterett, president, Betty Coleman, vice-president, Pat Easton, treasurer, Dorothy Porter, secretary, and Betty lilphick, corresponding secrctarv. Claire La Rue served as refreshment committee chairman. Inchided in the elub's regular schedule were its monthly meetings, at which the members sang in French, played French games, pre- sented French plays and were served refreshments. The Christmas l.S.S. meeting featured gift and card exchanging, and also a typical Page Forty-eight French Christmas cereinonv which was carried out by girls in French costume. The I.S.S. this year attained a goal for which it had been working for several years-a line phonograph and a good variety of French records were procured with club funds. Aside from its usual activities the I.S.S. group took on several outside missions. At Christmas time a fund was collected and a wide assortment of Christmas toys were given to two little English evacuees who might otherwise not have had quite so happy a memorv of their first Amer- ican Christmas. Recently the club also "adopted" a little thirteen-year old girl who lives in unoccupied France. Club members have been writing to Andree and intend to C011- tinuc correspondence through the summer. JUNIOR RED CRUSS-The junior Red Cross has been very active this year not only in knitting clothes to be sent "over there" but also in making braille books for the blind, menus for the sailors on battleships, favors for the veterans, and scrap books for the sick children. They have been holding one meeting a week in which the girls accomplished this work. The club has been successfully guided under the leadership of the faculty advisers, Miss Howell and Miss Cook. BRIDGE CLUB-The Bridge Club, under the able super- vision of Mr. Wilkin, met every Tuesday afternoon, Seventh Period, in Room 25. The officers were as follows: President, Milo Wolifg Vice-President, Dorothy Porter, Secretary, Claire La Rue, Treasurer, Betty Elphick. The time was devoted to teaching scoring and bidding. The faculty adviser suggested points of play during the actual handling of hands. The Club decided that Mr. Wilkin should give out the same sample hands at individual tables so that differences in bidding and play could be shown. This gave the members some foundation for duplicate bridge. OPERA CLUB-Under the supervision of Mr. Dimmers the Cpera Club was again organized this year. Meetings were held every Wednesdazy in Room 5. The works of many of the better-known composers, mainly Bizet, Mendelssohn, Tschai- kowsky, Liszt, Dvorak, Saint-Saens, and Schubert have been discussed and played on the phonograph. Many of the members attended the Junior Opera Guildis performance of "Carmen" in New York. Some of the mem- bers attended the Youth Symphony Concerts given by the Griffith Foundation in Newark. CHARM CLUB-The Charm Club, another new and up- and-coming club of the school, has been carrying on many interesting and varied activities this year. Lately the members have been having dancing to the victrola, which has provided a great deal of fun for everyone. They have also taken up "Appearance," which includes manners, clothes, good groom- ing, make-up, hair-do, posture, and poise. Each subject has been discussed thoroughly and has been demonstrated by some girl. The club has been a great deal of fun but still infor- mative to all. E Page Forty-nine BOOKNWORM-This year an experiment was tried in the production of a literary magazine, The Bookworm, which featured student creative work of an original nature. An editorial board of john Shaw, Paul Smith, Donald Peck, Helen Littlefield, and Pat Iiasttngiflwitli Mr. Dimmers as faculty adviser, planned and pr uced twqtissues this year. The mag- azine fills the need an outlot for creative writing in the high school. Y - J ku "V i j , 1 p i J.

From the comments and the reac- tions of all, it seems to have succeeded. The programs presented were in varied Helds. Movies, Pep Rallies, Speakers, Quizzes, Spelling Bees, etc., were greatly enjoyed by the students. Members include Betty Elphick, Chairmang Doris Brogle- mann, Secretaryg Marjorie Sterettg Dorothy Longley, David Krohng Graham Adairg lirank Zinkg Clarence Thyreng and Mr. Crane, faculty adviser. CAliliTliRlA PATROL-Because of the lack of order in the lunch line and neatness in the cafeteria, a patrol was formed under the direction of Mr. johnson to maintain order, control tralhc, and provide a pleasant atmosphere in the cafeteria. There are six posts at which members served at different times assigned to them. This patrol certainly has made a splendid and worthwhile improvement in the maintenance of order during the lunch period. Chairmen of the patrol were Robert I-Iageman and John Shaw. TRAFFIC PATROL--This year the Traflic Patrol has done an excellent job of guiding the students of V.H.S. through the correct doors and has kept the trafhc moving in the halls. The patrol gave two dances during the year. These were planned by -lean Allard and Richard Bourie, the eo-chair- men of the Patrol, with the aid of Mr. Johnson, their adviser. Another duty of the patrol was to conduct the fire drills. At least two drills were held during each month of the school year. lt is also the duty of the patrol to supervise the movements of homerooms to assembly and their order of seating. Page Fifty yr. is ,Q ii by lt' K4 WW LOST AND FOUND COMMITTEE-Each year a great number of articles are lost throughout the school. When any of these missing things are found in the school or on the grounds, they are brought to Room 27 where they are kept by Miss Cheney. Working under the supervision of Miss Cheney are Helen Anderson, Ruth Balne, Ellen Erickson, Shirley Rekoon, and Jaqueline Smithline. If no claims are made for these articles in two weeks, they are turned over to the finders. PUBLICITY COMMITTEE-Under the able leadership of Mr. Crane and Steve Zorky, and with the cooperation of Miss Batchelder and the Art Department, the Publicity Committee has functioned as a helpful organization this year. With the use of posters, blackboard drawings, notices, and many other types of bulletins, the committee has worked in behalf of the dances, concerts, the school play, and other activities, thereby arousing much interest and support for these affairs. FINANCE COMMITTEE-Another successful year is to be credited to the Finance Committee. As in previous years, the committee has been divided into two main groups. One section has had charge of the records of the finances of the school's organization. This was under the charge of faculty adviser, Mrs. Harriette Prince. The other group, which has been supervised by Clifford D. Wilkin, had charge of hand- ling tickets and the doors for the dances, basketball, baseball and football games and other school activities. SOCIAL COMMITTEE-Each year the Social Committee lends its helping hand in making the dances, parties, and all social affairs of Verona High successful. With the able guidance and advice of Miss Howell it has done a grand job again this year. Imogene Garrett, chairman this year, has worked hard and produced excellent results with the assistance of her industrious committee. The Social Committee cooper- ates with the separate class committees in decorating, choosing orchestras, and managing finances. Page Fifty-one BOWLING CLUB-The five men averaging the highest scores were picked from the bowling club by Mr. Crane to form a varsity team. The Hrst match against Caldwell proved successful. In the second match against Montclair the team was defeated, primarily because of the lack of experience on the part of our team. In the future there will be an organized bowling team which will compete with the other schools in the Suburban Con- ference. RIDING CLUB-The Riding Club, DEBATING CLUB--The main purpose of the Debating Club this year was to furnish a course containing the funda- mentals in public speaking. Debates have been held during the meetings every Wednesday at which time topics of cur- rent interest were discussed. Members were given practice in the developing of briefs and in the use of proper techniques on debating platforms. This practice will certainly prove to be of a benefit to these members in later life. CHESS CLUB-The Chess Club this year made tremen- dous strides and accomplished much. Not only did it intro- duce many new students to the fascinating game, but it also sponsored a tournament open to all students who were divided into classes for beginner, intermediate, and advanced players. The tournament was conducted by Don Peck and supervised by Mr. Clarence Smith, who also acted as faculty adviser, assisted by Mr. Butterworth. There were no club oiiicers as none were needed. usual, formed the only means through which the students of Verona High School were able to ride as a group from the school. This group went riding once a week, every Monday, at the Mont- clair Riding Academy. Mrs. Philipps was their faculty ad- viser. There were special divisions for both advanced riders and beginners. Through the Riding Club the girls were able to enjoy a favorite sport under expert guidance. MODEL CLUB-This year the Model Club has been under the direction of Mr. Dwyer. With a membership of about twenty, the club has met in the shop once a week during the sixth period on Wednesday to construct from balsa wood many novel and interesting models of airplanes, racing cars, and boats, and fascinating miniature furniture and houses. All of the members have worked entirely with their own ideas, and many designed the plans for their own Work. DANCE CLUB-The Dance Club, although only two years in existence, is fast becoming one of our most up-and-coming clubs. This year the club was under the faculty supervision of Miss Ruth Root. Dot Reynolds was the club's president. In the meetings, the members danced to their favorite mel- odies played by the best orchestras in the country on records. New members of the club learned to dance while others im- proved their skill. On May 2, a dance was given and every- one was welcome. Page Fifty-two HOSPITALITY COMMITTEE-The Hospitality Commit- tee, as usual, was a little-known group. It was composed of several members headed by Doris Brogelmann. Miss Imogene Cook was the faculty adviser. The committee kept account of all those people absent and when one person had been absent for any length of time, a homeroom representative was notified. He, in turn, wrote a letter to the absentee wishing him well and a quick return to school. iw 5 'NS' -'Y !'T'lss.m 2 K si 3? 3 1 I .fgz , Q. : ,X fx sirius.

Under the able guidance of "Skip- per" Smith and "Charlie" Brush the team soon took shape, and, al- though they didn't win a conference game, the boys showed a lot of tight and spirit. Perhaps a record of Eve losses and two wins doesn't seem like much of an achievement, but when one considers the strength of the teams played and the length of time Verona has had football, the -six K, statement that a good season was completed can be understood. The Hillbillies won games, and those over non-confer- ence teams: XVharton zoo anl 1 ' 2 C Harrison, 12-6. They lost to Clen Ridge, 6-o, Millburn, iq-o, Summit 6 zo- 5 Madison, 20-12, and Caldwell, 22-O- only two In spite of the losses Verona was honored by having Fred Palladino selected for the All-State third team and Captain Angelo Salvanti and Bob Hageman for the all-conference team. The players who will be lost bv graduation are: Angelo Salvanti, lim Randolph, Bill Hafer Bob lla 1 ge' man, Don Appleton, XVarren Sehlei- cher, and llarrv St. Clair. SOCCER 'l'his vcar 'fDoc" Goeltz's team had the most successful season in the llistorv of Verona Iligh School. The soccer team was recognized as North Iersev's Group II champions. Perhaps the most outstanding feat of the season was the victorv over Ilarrison which broke a three- vcar win streak of twenty-seven con- secutive galnes. Our players also dc- feated Kearny twice, Montclair twice, Hawthorne and Summit once and lost but one game, and that one to llarrison. The victories over Kearny and Ilarrison have estab- lished the Maroon and VVhite as the outstanding team in the State. Two members of this squad were selected on the All-State team. They are Don Grahalu, Goalie, for the second consecutive vcar and "Tony" Tucci, half back. Captain Mike Tucci lcd the squad, and other outstanding mem- bers of the squad who will be lost bv graduation arc: Don Graham, Tonv Tucci, Pete Tucci, Bob Iaeobus, Ilarrv Coad, Carmine Loibissio, and Steve Zorkv. In addition to receiving a large trophy from the State Athletic As- sociation each member of thc squad received a gold soccer ball at the Sports Banquet given for the soccer and football teams. The soccer team's record for the past season was seven victories, one tic, and one loss, giving them an outstandinv cason.

'l'he squad was led bv Co-Capt- ains 'l'ueei and Iacobus, veterans of the squad of 1940. Others on the team were Sweenev, llater, Black, Appleton, Randolph, and Coad. Veronays lone victory came by wav of a shot bv 4'Chick" Sweenev in the final go seconds of the Clen Ridge game, thus holding up the record of never having lost a decision to a Clen Ridge basketball team on our home court. 'l'wo thrilling games were plaved with our traditional rivals of Cald- well lligh School. Although losing, our bovs gave a tine account of themselves bv forcing the games into overtime periods. l'fast Orange, New Iersev State Champions ot 1940, managed to win over our hard fighting quintet. Because of greater experience on the part of their op- ponents, the Verona bovs were able to win onlv one of their ten Con- ference engagements. Central lligh School, a ranking contender for the state title, plaved our bovs to a standstill by using a superior man to man defense. lispeciallv outstanding during the vear was the play of Co-Captain 'l'ucci, who led the team in scoring. Having completed the first season of Conference competition Verona Iligh looks forward to another with high hopes of climbing further up in the Conterence standings. Page Fifty-eight 1:--Y row 30,1- View V"'?':Mw Qolll-ll' ' WX ' " 4 PFA' . W' . . l, BASEBALL Verona cracked the lid off the baseball season with its opening game against Bloomfield High School, going down in defeat to thc score of 8-6. The chief reason for this defeat was a large number of errors. This jinx seems to have plagued the Vc- rona team thus far. For the most part the boys have been onthitting their opponents and their pitchers have done good work on the mound, but poor support has caused their downfall. The Verona boys also lost to Hill- side 21-1, and Millburn 11-Q. They defeated Clen Ridge 4-g. In spite of our three losses the outlook is very good, for both Bloom- field and Hillside are strong con- tenders for title ranking and Mill- burn is defending champion of the Suburban Conference. Those players seeing the most action are: Tom Morely and Harry Dougherty, catchers, Tom Brighton, Bob Black and "Chick" Sweeney, pitchers, Captain Don Craham, first base, Tony Tucci, second base, Bob Iacobus, shortstop, Harrv Coad third base, and Bill Hafer, Bob Max- well, Art Cuaneionc and Ray Kan- del, fielders. Don Crahanfs fielding and hit- ting has been especially fine and both pitchers, Tom Brighton and Bob Black, have been effective on the mound. Bob Iacobus, Harry Coad and Bill Hafer have all been very strong on the batting end, and Tony Tucci has turned in some Hnc plays at second base. Page F fty Page Sixty TRACK The Track Team had an un- usually large number of candidates report for practice and overwhelm "Skipper" Smith with a number of sixty-Eve. This vear's squad should complete a very successful season. In the first two meets held it has run up very large scores, and the results show a well-balanced team. The success of thc team in these early meets has rested on the fact that the point scoring has been spread out among the whole squad. The squad has come along verv well and manv newcomers are un- covering hidden talents. They are Glen Knowles, a sprinter, Steve Zorkv, a 440 man, Iohn Levelli, Ted NVarner, Bob Nelson and Cerald Cogliano, 880 men, Bill VVolf and Ioe Fitzpatrick, milcrsg Robert Con- nelly and Alex Schrieber, high jump- ers, Norman VVeiner and Ioe Al- derio, weight men, VVilliam Morri- son, VVillis Cutler, Albert Kaplus, VVally Dix, Richard Abramson and Charles Bentley, pole vaulters, and Bob Morrison and Bob Harris, hurd- lers. The backbone of this year's team is its veterans, Captain XVarren Sehlieeher, Harry St. Clair, Art Ia- eobs, Milo VVolff, Don Oberg, Don Appleton, and VVerner lloffman. Although it is earlv in the season several records have already fallen and others are expected to fall before the season draws to a close. in GIRLS' A.A. One of Verona lligh's niost active organizations is the Girls, AA. whicl1 alwavs has a very full sports schedule, including hockey in the fall, basketball and bowling in the winter, baseball, tennis and archerv in the spring, and riding during the entire school rear. lligh spots of the sports program this vear were the contests with Caldwell in hoekev, basketball, and baseball. In addition to the variety of sports in which the girls participated, lllZll1V nieinbcrs of the association also helped with the sale of eandv to the crowds at the football games. Another of the elub's achieve- lllClllS was the organization of the Uflicials' Club. Miss C-roendvke, in the capacity of practice teacher in the girls' gym classes, was the insti- gator of this club, whose nrcinbers consisted of girls who were inter- ested in learning to ofliciate cor- reetlv in the various Sports. 'l'heY gained experience during the basket- ball and baseball tournament games. Uflieers for the Girls' AA. during the current year were: lean Carlson, prcsidentg Dot Sinithcrs, vice-pres- identg Cladvs Criflin, sccretarvg and Frances Pangburn, treasurer. Mrs. Aliue Van llouten, who was the faculty adviser of the club, ablv instructed the girls in the techniques and skills of the sports. Page SIXQY one Page Sixty-two BOXING-The boxing club proved to hold a great deal of enjoyment for spectators as well as participants. Each week bouts were held in the gym in the various weight classifications and a good time was had by all. There were thirty-five members of this club. The champions of all the various divisions were: Heavyweight, Pete Tuccig Light Heavyweight, Charles Sweeney, Middleweight, Bob Blackg Welterweight, Art Guancioneg Lightweight, Fritz Bourieg Bantamweight, Bill Young, Featherweight, Elwood Fox.

With a ,40 record of nine out of ten wins, and all four letter men back, what golf coach wouldn't look forward to a successful season? The six main prospects were Parker Newell, Frank Bedford, Teddy "Gunga" Dean, Pete De Camp, Charley Gulla and Timmy Schwend. The season got under way against West Orange, our only stumbling block last year. Our success was due mainly to the effort of our coach, Mr. Williams. TENNIS-Tennis is one of the new sports which we are enjoying this year. An ambitious group of students under the leadership of Mr. Crane set about early in the spring to organize a team. The members re-elected for the varsity will compete in scheduled matches against the other schools of the Sub- urban Conference. A squad of fifteen boys reported and is looking for- ward to a successful season. CHEERLEADERS-This year the cheerleaders have completed another successful season in promoting the school spirit of the student body. In this way they helped to inspire the players to use good team work. They led the cheers not only during the basketball season but also at the football games. Some of them composed original and novel cheers which helped to prove to the players that the students were behind them. SOFTBALL INTRAMURALS-The spring intramural sport, softball, started with a bang, and eaeh day a large number of boys could be found playing on the various diamonds. Softball has proved to be one of the most popular intra- mural activities and the competition among the teams in the league has been very lively. There are six teams in the league with twelve boys on each team, giving a large number of boys an opportunity to take part in this activity. BASKliTBAl,I,-A new system was inaugurated in this year's basketball intramurals with the players divided into two classiheations, the Freshman-Sophomore league and the Junior-Senior league. The league winning team in the Freshman-Sophomore division was Cornell, composed of: Maurice Henderson, Kenneth Liljestrand, Tony De Salvo, Robert Healy, Alfred Mamie, and Robert Kerspel. The junior-Senior winner was Northwestern, composed of: Angelo Salvanti, Joe Fear, Joel Dretel, Robert Egan, Pete Tucci, and Werner Hoff- man. VOl.l,l'iYBALl,-Tlie Dodgers, leaders of the National league, beat Cleveland of the American league for the Volleyball championship. Witli seven men on a team, the twelve teams were divided into two leagues, the American and the National. Volleyball provided a great deal of enjoyment during the off season between the winter and spring sports, and a large number of boys turned out for this activity. TOUCH FOOTBALL-The winner of this year's foot- ball intramural league was the team known as Army. The members of this team were: Pete Tucci, Paul Goeltz, Rob- ert Connelly, Robert Howard, Allan Daly, Edwin Smoot, Robert Nelson, Robert Maxwell and Bill Young. The competition was close throughout the season with Army defeating Tulane in the playoffs. The league was composed of eight teams with twelve men on each team, making a total of 96 boys who par- ticipated in this activity. Prophecy for the Class of 1941 This year's class reunion is being held at a bigger and better Sparky's run by those two Eddies, HODCEKISS and LA RUE. Eddie La Rue, it seems is still trying to get into a college, he has been offered scholar- ships at Vassar, Wellesley and Smith for obvious reasons. Eddie Hodgekiss has taken the place of jimmy Lynch at the colossal new NVorld's Fair held at our highly develop- ed metropolis of Verona. Let's get our coats on and be on our mer- ry way. Our very experienced chauffeur, Ilarry St. Claire is expertly driving us to the reunion. Harry has reforlned from the reck- less driver of his high school days. As long as we don't have any parks to go through we will be quite safe. I don't know about that though, for what is that strange looking contraption coming at us? Can it be an in- vasion from Mars? No, it isn't. It is just LAURETTE DUCKWORTH in her new- ly acquired car. She has decorated so many of them, fenders I mean, that she doesn't see the sense of having any on her new car. Besides, the wheels turn just as well without them, or so she tells us. As we skim by Laur- ette we pass a low rambling type house and noticed IEAN ALLARD sitting at a desk counting money. Could it be that she still believes in handling the money so that How- ard won't spend it? We will have to ask her about it later when she comes to the re- union. A few houses down the street we see Page Sixty-four IEAN MeDONALD'S home and wave to her. It seems she is quite elated over her new car. You guessed it-it is a Craham!!!! As we bid goodbye to jean we notice a closed down lumber yard. It seems a certain young DICK SCHNEIDER has changed his occupation from lumbering to owning a dclicatessen store. Could it be that FRAN- NIE PANCBURN couldn't get enough to eat? Next to the lumber camp we sec a very fashionable store. VVe've always known that a profession fits a person's character and now we see that LOIS BENTON has open- ed a new sweet shop. Keep it up Lois! VVhile whizzing through Caldwell we pass a fashionable "Young Misses Shop" man- aged by that well-known designer, PAUL- INE STRUBLE. At long last we reach our destination, and find HELEN VAN DUYNE, EIVIILY BUSSE, DORIS BROGELMANN, DOT PORTER, HELEN LITTLEFIELD BET- TY COLEMAN, BETTY ELPHICK, and MARIORIE STERETT just entering. That intelligent group has done quite well for it- self. Helen is very successful in raising tons of prize apples from her orchard, Emily has just assumed the position of head dietitian at Mountainside Hospitalg Helen Littlefield is a full-fledged aviatrix and flies over high summits every day, Betty Coleman has been given a part in a stage show in Radio City where she keeps the dullcst programs funny by her infectious laugh, Marjorie's book, written from her experiences as a senior, is just off the press. It is entitled, "The Art of Becoming a Social Butterfly." As a pho- tographer for the Newark Sunday Call, Dot Porter will be on hand to take pictures of the class reunion. She has just found out in her own little way from farmerette Doris that her prize sheep is the happy mother of quintuplets. Dot has also found out that Betty Elphick has just bought joint owner- ship in a Golf Club. As a side-line she also runs a day nursery. VVe bid farewell to this crowd and are met by a new group fMiss Howell's social butterflies of the senior classj , IMOGENE GARRETT, MARY- LOU CONOVER, CLAIRE LA RUE, MURIEL WILSON, BETTY TAYLOR, and PAT EASTON. Imogene is our stylish dress designer. It seems now she has a different dress for ev- ery date. What a wardrobe!!! Mary-Lou has continued in the field of being a kindergar- ten teacher but now she is taking care of the little kids and not the senior boys. Claire is now secretary to a prominent chemical en- gineer. HOWE did she do it? Muriel has traveled a long way for the reunion. She is now a receptionist at Fort jackson. Well DUNN! Betty is still BOBBING around trying to find the DWIGHT BUDDY. Pat has come a long STRETCH in her singing. She now sings in the Metropolitan. We bid our adieus to the glamor girls and meet our two faithful companions of 1Q41 ANNE SHEARER and ARLENE BURNETT. Anne has a job as a torch-singer and my fa- vorite fireman tells me there have been zo fires in her night club. Scotty is doing very well with her modeling and is in constant demand. VV e finally arrive at our table and find a handsome group of males there to greet us. WARREN SCHLEICHER, NORMAN HOUGH, jIMMY RANDOLPH, FRANK PRUST, jOHN SHAW, BOB MORRI- SON, IACK NOBACK, DAVE KROHN, and BOB HYDE. Warren is leading a double life. He is owner and manager of Hotel Warren-Tow- ers and coach of the Yale Swimming team. Buddy is the proud papa of a new super-Six which has "automatic" tire-changing appa- ratus. jimmy Randolph is head of a brand new night club out on Route 23. It is sit- uated next to the Three Vet's and now all the Verona High students are served on Sun- day nights. jimmy can't forget when he was a senior. Frank Prust has just completed his latest book entitled HPUIIS for All Oc- casionsf' It seems History 4A gave him his start. Can you forget those Puns? john Shaw was quite Punny, too, but john has settled down and is a mentor of R.C.A. He at last invented a portable radio and televi- sion set. Among his colleagues he is known as "Alonzo Schtunk" the Wizard of Tele- vision. There was a rumor that john was sighted nearing jupiter in his new rocket ship but I guess his presence dispels that. Bob Morrison is the construction engineer on the new Mississippi River Bridge they started back in 1Q41 and are just finishing. jack Noback has just returned to Verona Page Sixty-five with his sensational band and is going to give a concert at Verona's new Carnegie Hall fthe V.H.S. gymj , for the benefit of the jazz lovers of Verona. jazz was popular in 1941! Remember? Our Hne newspaper editor of high school days has taken up law in a big way. He is DAVID L. KROHN, if you haven't already guessed. He has just been elected District Attorney after winning the late sensational murder case. Dave got his start taking care of the money affairs of the White Hornet with BOB HYDE. Incidentally, Bob may be seen on various podiums for podiij cru- sading for beer instead of water to be piped as the universal solvent. After conversing a few minutes with these charming gentlemen we are startled by a loud whoop and holler. We guardedly turn to look at the door and see our own class wit IACK DE CAMP entering. jack had a golf date with a blond and a dancing date with a red head and they were both catching up with him. jack is just rolling in money from the sale of his now famous magazine, "The journal of live" including a directory of the best orchestra and rug-cutting estab- lishments. VVe are just recovering from this startling event when our entertainment begins. It surprises us to find the quieter element of the 1941 senior class dancing in the chorus, MURIEL MARRIOTT, HELEN AN- DERSON, MARION BENZ, HELEN FRAZER, LENA SICA, HILDEGARDE, SCHMIDT, DOROTHY WILKINS, and DORIS VIETCH. We later learned this Page Sixty-six was just a past time for the girls and they were all engaged in legitimate business. Mu- riel, the ideal secretary still enjoys sitting on the knee of her boss, George Gossling, only now she's married to him. Helen Anderson has gotten to be quite the busy bee in the "Green Hornet's" life. Stanley seems to en- joy her buzzing or so we have heard anyway. It seems the Wilkins family has added a new member to the circle. The former Marion Benz is it. These girls told us that if you hear a splashy sound issuing forth from the "Y" you can be sure it's Hele11 Fraser still patiently teaching her charges how to Hap their fins. Lena Sica has risen fast and furi- ously in the business world for she is assist- ant to the secretary of the President of the United States. Clt still is Mr. Roosevelt if we are permitted to say.j Hildegarde Schmidt is an air hostess on a ship to Mars. Going places, that girl is!!!! Dorothy is the chief librarian in the Congressional Library at Washington. We know she showed talent in good old Verona Library. Doris Vietch is secretary to a very handsome boss in the Pru and they say he is her boss in real life, too. They have a nice home in Connecti- cut. The curtain falls on this rockette number and we again turn to thoughts of hearing about the progress of our former classmates of V.H.S. BOB HAGEMAN may be seen teaching aspiring young football players how to play without breaking one of their lower extremities. He also may be seen in the nights, escorting lovely ladies around to va- rious parties.

My next door neighbor has just told me about a few old "fellows" Maybe you know what they are doing now but we will tell those of you who have lost track in the last 12 years. DONALD AP- PLETON, still growing, is debating whether to join the circus as the tall, handsome man or to continue his brilliant high jumping career. For further information ask Miss Van Duyne. DONALD ABRAMSON, the great lover, is now giving exhibitions in bowling. Experts say he is unable to be beaten. ROBERT ANDERSON has turn- ed into an oil magnate controlling several successful gas stations. IOE ALDERIO is working for the Reynold's Company and we hear it isn't the Reynolds Tobacco Com- pany. If you want some wiring done in your home just consult ART ANDERSON, the electrician. He is really very good. VVe are interrupted in our conversation of person- ages by CARMEN CASANOVA LOIBIS- SIO. Carmen wants us to go next door to the famous art gallery containing only the work of famous artists of Verona High School. It seems CARMINE DE ROSA, STEVE ZORKY, and TONY TUCCI are well represented. Carmine is said to be ready, willing and able. If you ever wish a favor done or are in need of a helper, you won't have to meet Carmine half way. Steve is now the "Creat Zorky," painting on his pent-house roof overlooking the beautiful Peekman River. If you girls really want to know what you look like, get a hold of Steve, Page Sixty-eight our ace cartoonist. He will certainly bring out your finer points. Tony's pictures were voted the outstanding ones in the exhibit by all. Cood luck fellows! On our way back to Sparky's we are met by a group of late-comers, CHARLES SWEENEY, DONALD GRAHAM, AN- CELO SALVANTE, HARRY COAD, VVILLARD PURDY, and MIKE TUCCI. They greet us with the news of the latest baseball victory. Sweeney, the great pitcher, is still with the Yankees. He is most famous for his "nothing" ball. Donald is a great bookkeeper for the race tracks. What a place to put all that knowledge of bookkeep- ing. Shame on you, Donald! Angelo is coach for the Verona Football Team and is doing a swell job. He had a time finding a school to go to, but finally cinched his edu- cation, and the "Caldwell Bums" better watch out for his snappy little team. Harry Coad is the home run hitter of the team Sweeney pitches for. He beat Babe Ruth's record by a hundred runs. Mike is the fa- vorite baker in Camp Dix and a draftee for the 1962 war. Upon telling us that Willard manages the team for the fellows, they re- lated the exciting incidents and left us and found their tables. When we got back to ours we found a group of attractive young ladies there to greet us. They were MARIE DE CARLO, C E R T R U D E HOCH- HEISER, IUNE GERARD, IANET CUT- LER, and FLORENCE RIDSDALE. We were all terribly envious of "Babe's" lovely waved hair and could see the jealous glances of the assembled women.

She is mascot in the Naval Reserve. XVe could all go for those uniforms, june. janet is private secretary to the President of the Otis Elevator Company and has become very prominent in the business and social world. She has a southern accent acquired from her southern college days too. Another Promising hairdresser is MARIE RUSSO. Remember her Ceorge VVashing- ton "hair-do" i11 1941? She is now famous for her "VVillkie mess-up.'7 VVith the arrival of REBECCA LEWIS our senior girls of 1941 showing is com- pleted. Rebecca, the pride of Chemistry B class can be seen daily in Lincoln Me- morial Hospital. She is one of the most sought after nurses, too. VVe were about to call the roll of persons when in walked MILO VVOLFF, PETER TUCCI, and ALAN DALY. Milo, it seems, was in his study before a blackboard study- ing some diagrams for chess moves. After completing a difficult move he made a note of it for the annual chess tournament and hurried to our reunion. Pete just came from the big Verona Colf Club where he is now chief caddy on the old bench. Congratula- tions Pete! Alan had just come from a tem- Pago Seventy perance league meeting which at present is against V.H.S. students smoking. My what a change time has made!!! The stage lights are dimmed once again and an expectant hush has fallen over the audience. The curtain is raised on a lovely moonlight scene. All is quiet -- BANC, BANC, BANC, I mean all was quiet!! XV hat is going on or what is falling in! Oh, it is all clear now. It is our noted aeronauti- cal engineer NORIWAN CRANE who has hopped over in his new mass-production plane, the "jumping Bean." VV e were afraid he was going right through the roof, but hc said he just wanted to give us a thrill. I bet he was really reading one of those hair-rais- ing mystery stories he writes on the side. VVell, as we were about to say before we were interrupted by the falling stars, the stage is beautifully set and out steps BILL CUNNINCHAM who has gone into part- nership with Bob Burns, Esq. Bill has been sweeping the country with the new "Bazoo- ka-Trumpetf' CMotto of Bill's is, "even a child can play it in one easy lesson."j Bill says he has had several narrow escapes at the hands of angry parents. After this trumpet exhibition an unsched- uled program began to take place as an irate spectator, ELIOT PURLSON jumped into tl1e center of the floor and began a radical speech 011 the evils of drink and late hours. He was immediately hushed up by Dick Schneider whose side-line it was to escort wealthy ladies around to just such places Eliot was talking about. It's a good thing Dick quietecl him for his paid "date" was be- VERONA TRUST COMPANY Checking and Savings Accounts Safe Deposit Boxes and Storage Trust Department K ' Personal Loans if F d 1 ' ,ul-ut. 1,, e era Housing Loans Consult Us About Your Financial Problems l- -'- ""'- -- -- I Telephone VErona 8-5501-S502 P SPORT SHO CHARLES BAHR Everything In the Line of 8 Inc.

A nice fight was beginning to develop when FRED SCH UG, a roller skating attendant at Flor- ham Park stepped in and broke it up. He went there so often with the Music Depart- ment they just gave him a steady job. VVe were so weak at this that our little party decided to retire to the lounging rooms and calm our nerves down a bit. We saw TIMOTHY SCHWEND, PAUL SMITH, and DON PECK all in a very conversational mood. Timmy was arguing with Paul, who is a Wall Street Financier and International Broker. Don Peck, who was thoughtfully trying to get some of his brainy ideas of "Union Now" into the picture, was failing completely. Poor Don!! Some day he will get a sympathetic listener! When you have spare time look up Don and discuss world problems. Over in one of the corners of the lounge we notice IOEL DRETEL and BOB GOS- SINGTON. Ioel is deep in thought trying to translate one of the poems he wrote back in the "gay forties." Bob is also deep in thought, but of his bugs. He is now a teacher of Biology in V.H.S. and has helped Mr. Anderson innumerable times. The soli- tude of the room was interrupted by a group of males laughing and by a blare from a new vest-pocket radio that couldn't be seen. It was invented by FRED GRAUERg some say Mr. Crane forced him to do it. The laughter was coming from the fellows look- ing at the collection of those novel pictures of BOB HAAS. He has a lot of new addi- tions since our high school days and you Page Sovonty-Iwo really should see them. As we are Hnally settled in our comfort- able chairs we hear very soothing, deep noises. It is WARREN YATES who is still going strong in Broadway shows just like "Ole Man River." Speaking of Broad- way shows, ALBERT KAPLUS has just completed another year's engagement as the funny man on the Boxwell House Variety show. We are well and ably represented in the "big city," aren't we? The stage show is over and we all leisure- ly stroll into the ballroom to dance. We are met on the edge of the Hoor by BILL HEALY who has again foiled Wall Street with another of his dazzling moves. Says I. P. Morganbilt of Bill: "I don't see how the 'young whippersnapper' did it." Bill was here to tell us that IIMMY INNES of the platinum blonde hair was unable to come. It seems that he had to die it this af- ternoon for he was a very good target in a blackout. His hair is now black so he won't be a military objective. PETE LUZZI and GERALD COCLIANO had come in to- gether and they were coming to greet us. Pete was less successful in dodging study hall teachers and is now a sergeant in the Army. Gerald has a very happy home and he always insists on having everything in writing especially notes that his children bring home from their school teachers. Could Mr. Dimmers have gotten him that way? It is probable!!!!! The music ended and we were forced back to our tables again.

At our table I found BOB IACOBUS and WERNER HOFF- MAN who had strolled over from their ta- ble. Bob told us he was interested in farm- ing and was a philosopher of the elements of nature, too. Dirty work! Don't hit me! It wasn't punny! VVerner has finally expand- ed his theory of electronics to the astonished heads of VVestinghouse. Over in the corner our little bookkeeper jean Allard has a sleepy husband HOW- ARD DIC CAMP on her shoulder. After a usual morning of overhauling a motorcycle, fixing three Hats on his car, and putting a new rubber band in his model airplane, Howard has just become exhausted. Person- ally, I'll wager that it was that jitterbug dance I saw him just executing that tired him. He never used to be that way in 1Q41. He's getting old. Shame on you, Howard. At the end of our long table we could hear a bubble of excited voices and we rose to find out what was going on. It was IOHN K I E R N A N CHIDESTER thc "walking encyclopedia" joyfully answering many questions on history, art, and science. john was just happily received back into the folds of "You Ask 'Em, We Answer 'Em" program sponsored by the "Seven VVay Cold Tablets." VVe wonder if anyone could stick him on a question? VV e asked our very com- Page Seventy-four panionable neighbor Louis VVinters where RICHARD BOURIE and BILL HAFER were, for we didn't see them there. Lou told me that since "Fritzie" got himself married he hasn't been seen much. Has anybody seen him? Maybe he is up against a stub- born VV ALL! !! Bill Hafer after playing bas- ketball for L.I.U., is now settling down and has opened a very exclusive girls' dancing school. My Bill, you've changed!!! Lou himself has just been appointed head track coach at the U. of Southern California. VVe knew Louie would get out to see those beau- tiful gals in Hollywood. Have you found your "Ideal Girl" yet? Our conversation with Lou was interrupt- ed by the arrival of T I M O T H Y SCHWEND and DONALD OBERC. We were told that these completed the class of 1Q41. Timmy has risen to great heights from his very friendly smile and many of thc weaker sex have been completely overcome by it. Don is now first in the hearts of the nation's women since Bing Crosby died from shock. We were told that he couldn't stand seeing one of his horses come in first. In spite of the fact that fame and for- tune have smiled on many of our class, and that some of the members have the new '4Sunbeam" solar-energized autos, they are still the friendly, happy-go-lucky gang of Verona High School Days of 1941.
