Because of his never-ending patience, enlight-
ening leadership, and his great interest in every-
thing that concerns the students of Verona Iligh
School we dedicate this, the twentieth issuc of
Simnows, to Harold Butterworth and wish hiin
well during his future years at V.ll.S.
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.

1941 Class History
At a long distant time in the dim, dim
reaches of the past there appeared at the
beckoning portals of V.ll.S. the now grad--
uating, most high, exalted, and irreproach-
able senior class. 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-

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. After approxi-
mately three days of homework, lessons,

Summer life was trod into the dust by the
sardonically grinning teachers. 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

four sta es in the methods of arriving at

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-
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."

1942 Class History
This year we made up for our famous
delay by having the only legal election for
class officers in the school. 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

1943 Class History
Shortly after V.H.S. had resumed its
studies on the Ninth of September the first
class meeting of the Class of 1943 was held.
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-
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
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,

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.

VVhat would the class of '4g be like with-

1944 Class History
Once again a group of slightly bewildered
students entered V.H.S. 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
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

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.

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
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.

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.

before have the students of Verona lligh School been able
to purchase such a paper. Each issue carries exclusive
reports of the latest high school happenings, plus a fine
interview of a prominent person, whether he may be
teacher, musician or politician. Perhaps one of the finest
highlights of the paper is the regular photograph displayed
on the front page. "The Civic Centre Cynicf' written in
poetry form is one of the most popular columns, followed
closely by "Speaking of Sportsf, YVhcrevcr lHCl'l1l'JCI'S of

of their time toward the make-up of this paper. Letls keep
up our Ene support of this publication and look forward to

COMBINED GLEE CLUBS
This year the Combincd Clee Club was under the excel-
lCllt supervision of Miss Muriel Lewis. 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.
An oltspring of the Clee Clubs is the newh' organ-
ized a Cappella Choir which has done some Hue spe-
cialized work this year.

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
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
French Christmas cereinonv which
was carried out by girls in French
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
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.
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

ASSEMBLY COMMITTEE-Tlie assembly committee this
year has tried hard to please the student body with interesting
and enjoyable programs. 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
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
Chairmen of the patrol were Robert I-Iageman and John
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.

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.
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-
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.
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.

athletic competition in the Subur-

This year the football team played
its Hrst scheduled season of organ-
ized football and turned in a H1
record for a green team.
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
statement that a good season was
completed can be understood.

ence teams: XVharton zoo anl

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

Verona cracked the lid off the
baseball season with its opening
game against Bloomfield High

In addition to the variety of sports
in which the girls participated, lllZll1V
nieinbcrs of the association also

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-

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

the V.H.S. golf team. 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-
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
Softball has proved to be one of the most popular intra-
mural activities and the competition among the teams in

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-

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

aged by that well-known designer, PAUL-
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
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
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-
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
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-
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. The girls are just as crazy

about him now as they were in V.H.S. when
he broke his leg. 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-
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,
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. Babe has taken

up Beauty Culture as a profession but we
don't know why! Marie is still able to find
room in Angelo's car but now she has part
ownership in it. Some say one-half, but may-
be it's two-thirds! VVhat is it, Ang? Cer-
trude is writing a sequel to her speech
"There Burned a Light," this one is called,
"The Light That Failed." june has just
accomplished her life's ambition of 1941.
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-
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-

ginning to see Eliot's point of view. 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
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
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. Here we had gos-
siped the whole dance and had not yet done

the new La Conga which had just come to
Verona after being made popular years ago
all over the country. 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-
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.
Here's to many more happy reunions and
more happiness to all!!!
Push! If you can't push, PULL! If you
can't pull, get out of the way!
