This year has seen many changes in Verona High School, necessitated
by the war. New subjects have been added to our curriculums, to better
enable both boys and girls to meet the problems created by a world wide
struggle of humanity. We have given many from both faculty and students
to the armed forces that will maintain our freedom and democracy.
lt is our fondest hope that in this edition of Shadows we may preserve
some of the happy memories of high school days, and we place our trust in
an early victory which will return the peace and prosperity so long enjoyed
by every American.
lt gives the Shadows staff a great deal of pleasure to have the oppor-
tunity of dedicating this edition of Shadows to Major Charles Brush of the
United States Marine Corps.
Although he is no longer a member of the faculty, having left three
years ago, Major Brush's name will always be a part of Verona High School.
Since he has left Verona, Major Brush has traveled far in both rank and
renown. He has risen from the position of a First Lieutenant to that of a
Major. Moreover, he has seen such corners of the globe as Puerto Rico,
Guadalcanal and Bougainville, and has even been mentioned in the famous
book, "Guadalcanal Diary," for his outstanding leadership in action.
Major Brush has done the finest kind of work in the service, and we
only hope that perhaps when he has completed his present job he will return
to Verona High School.
May we wish him good luck and Cod-speed.
CHARLES HARRIS BRUSH
United States Marine Corps V
TO THE CLASS OF 1944
Many friendships, the joy of some hard
work, good fun, worthwhile accomplishments,
a bit of success, a glimpse of a busy challeng-
ing future, a stimulation of the imagination,
and a deepening of the emotions-all of these
we hope have been yours in the Henry B.
Whitehorne High School. Worthwhileness does
not stop here., Much more of life lies ahead to
be used usefully, not aimlessly, courageously,
not fearfully, patriotically, not disloyallyg fully,
not incompletely, seriously, not shallowlyg and
joyfully, not morosely. Where fate takes us,
where duty calls we know not, but may we
not believe that the living out of ideals is not
to be measured by weeks, months and years
C. VINCENT CEICER,
The production of this issue of "Shadows"
is one more accomplishment for the Class of
l944, a fine group of students who have done
so much to provide able and intelligent lead-
ership during the year I943-l944.
The present war started when you were
Sophomores and much of the planning for the
future has been done during these trying times
while it has been difficult to visualize the kind
of world we would find when high school days
Seniors, you may be proud of the part you have taken in accomplishing
many things. The leadership you have provided for your class, school,
various organizations within the school, your publications and athletic teams
far excel anything you have dared to hope for.
You will soon be leaving this school a better place because you have
lived here, and the world will be a better world because you and others like
you will do everything you can to raise the social and educational standards
of our world of the future.

This year, despite the many wartime curtailments and the new limita-
tions put on her and her staff, Barbara Bender with the aid of the group
of people she chose to work with her, has done a truly commendable piece of
work in presenting to you, the students and faculty of Verona High School,
this, the i944 edition of "Shadows"
Assisting her was Dave Wilson who was excellent. He was more or
less the jack-of-all trades who did everything or anything with the same
cheerful willingness . . . ln Barbara's own words, "He is one whom l
could not possibly have done without." This year Miss Kautzman undertook
the task of faculty adviser and has done a splendid job. She gave her time
and advice whenever needed. Without her aid, success would have been
The Editorial Staff has done very well in carrying out the mechanics
necessary to such a publication. Mary Ellen Tompson worked with the
Apeda Studios and Ed Pischl in this year's most difficult photography task.
The picture-taking had to be speeded up to almost half the speed of former
years. She worked very diligently and has been rewarded by the fine photog-
raphy in this year's "Shadows" '
To Helen Marriott fell the task of collecting the literary section of the
yearbook, writing what was necessary and, all in all, spending much time
making "Shadows" a better book to read and enjoy. Doris Anne Hall used
her artistic ability in furnishing the drawingsand other art work needed.
This was a most difficult task and proved to be done exceptionally well.
The high increase in ithe circulation of "Shadows" is itself tribute to
loyce Mills as Circulation Manager and Ruth Buck asffgublicity Manager.
Their work was outstanding and much credit is due them. Handling the
financial situation was Hannelore Weise who proved to be invaluable.
This year Mildred Finkel and lean Bruso, co-editors, spent much time and
energy soliciting ads. Without this, "Shadows" could not have been produced.
jimmy Courter was appointed Sports Editor and given the ever im-
portant task of getting all of the sports writeups. He used his ability to
its very best advantage and "Shadows" is grateful to him. Lastly, but of
extreme importance, is the fine direction of the typing staff by Mary O'Neill.
Her help was gratefully received and well appreciated.

From out of the Senior Class graduating this Spring, eight
boys have already graduated so that they might enter the Armed
Forces. Our Shadows would definitely not be complete this year
without our paying tribute .to these fighting men of Uncle Sam's
Army and Navy. 9 .
Ronald Bersworth is now a Private in the Air Corps, and
is stationed at C-reensboro, North Carolina. While he attended
high school he was one of the boys who received letters for
being on our soccer team.
Raymond Farley has been added to the ranks of the 90th
Mountain lnfantry, as a Private at Camp Hale, Paudo, Colorado.
When Ray was in his junior year he received well-deserved let-
ters for participating on our football and baseball teams.
Private Roland johnson was stationed at Fort Bragg, North
Carolina, but is now overseas. ln his Sophomore year one of his
outstanding jobs was manager of the football team which he did
Arthur james McNeil is serving as an Apprentice Seaman
and is stationed at the United States Naval Training Station,
Newport, Rhode Island. While attending high school he took
part in our football team, track team, and Clee Club.
William Spohn enlisted in the Navy in his Senior Year and
is now a Fireman Second Class at the United States Naval
Training Station, Hotel Somerset, Boston, Massachusetts.
Allan Tucci, a private first class, is stationed at Fresno, Cal-
ifornia. He was well-known for his ability to play soccer, and
received letters for both soccer and baseball.
Donald Waterman, whom we all know, is a private in the
Army at North Cam Hood, Texas. We all probably saw him
helping Mrs. Wood in the cafeteria during the years he attended
Private William Wolff of the Field Artillery who is serving
overseas was better known as the manager of our soccer team in
his junior year. He was one of the most outstanding mile run-
ners on our track team. He showed more of his ability by taking
part in the Camera Club.

As we look into our crystal ball of mem-
ory, we can clearly see a bright September
day in l94O when the class of '44 first
entered the portals of Verona High School.
Very significant was that sunny day for it
was an indication of the beautiful memories
they as seniors can now take with them as
they follow the paths of future life,
The usual confusion accompanied this
class's arrival but within a few weeks they
were all quite used to life as freshmen and
managed to make a name for themselves as a
versatile and well-rounded class. To lead them
in their activities they elected john Warner
as presidentg Clarence Thyren, vice-president,
and jean Bruso, secretary-treasurer.
With the coming of the new year, whis-
pers circulated that the freshmen were plan-
ning a super-special dance to be given March
fourteenth under the title of the "Star Dust
Dip." An able decorating committee and an
ambitious advertising committee helped to
make this one of the best dances of the year
and a grand time was had by all.
There was hardly an organization or club
which did not benefit from the talents and
aid of this class. There was a large delegation
of freshmen in both the Glee Clubs and the
Band and Orchestra. Those more literally in-
clined found their places in "Shadows" and
"White Hornet." The Class of '44 won new
laurels when one of its illustrious members,
namely Mary Ellen Tompson, was given a role
in the annual school production. The boys of
the class turned to the athletic field to prove
their worth to the school. Among these were
Glenn Knowles, joe Fear and Ronald Bers-
worth. These, then, are the memories which
our crystal ball recalls to us. The freshman
year has passed and a new and glorious morn
is dawning. The Class of '44 began its second
year with Mary Grace Teti, president, Glenn
Knowles, vice-president, and joyce Mills as
secretary-treasurer, all of whom were elected
in june, I94l. As in the previous year the
next matter, warranting much attention, was
the class dance. Rose Marie Timken was
appointed committee chairman and with the
aid of the entire class did much to make the
"Witches Waltz" a great success.
Ten vivacious sophomore maidens donned
their maroon and white cheerleaders' uniforms
and spurred the football and basketball team
on to a really splendid showing. Sophomore
members of the football team included jack
Howat, Bob Lazar, Wally Dix, and jimmy
Courter. john Farrar, Allen Tucci and Fred
lngold upheld the honor of the class in soccer
and Glenn Knowles, john Warner, Chuck
Bentley and Bob Howard were among the
promising track stars. Fred lngold found a
berth on both the varsity basketball and base-
ball teams and did a fine job. Doris Lelong
did much with her baton to keep the morale
of our teams high.
The many music making sophs found their
places in the Band and Orchestra and Clee
Clubs. The class was again honored by having
one of its members cast in the school play.
This time it was jimmy Courter. The first two
years have passed and there were but two
more to go. Now, they were upperclassmen,
respected and holders of important parts in
the functions of daily school life. Barbara
Bender was chosen assistant editor of "Shad-
ows" and jacqueline Dempsey ably filled her
position as Secretary of the Student Council.
jimmy Courter was elected Vice-President of
the Dramatic Club. The class was also well
represented on the different committees and
in the various clubs. Again the pep and vital-
ity of the class was indicated when five of its
girls were appointed as cheerleaders to en-
courage the enthusiasm of the student body.
In the fall, they elected Shirley Fischer, Pres-
ident, Hannelore Weise, Vice-President and
Bernadette Maack, Secretary-Treasurer, and
under this fine leadership met frequently to
discuss plans for the junior Prom to be given
in june in honor of the seniors. The sports
world again held much intrigue for some of
the boys and they all did much to contribute
to that year's athletic successes. The crystal
ball's last glimpse of the juniors, shows them
having a simply terrific time with the seniors
at the annual prom. The diligent preparation
and intense enthusiasm did much to make it
a truly wonderful occasion.
At long last in September, l943, the Class
of '44 came into its own. Now they were
seniors, seniors in a changing world. Many of
their classmates found themselves on far flung
battlefields throughout the world, fighting so
that their children and grandchildren might
enjoy the freedoms that enabled them to live
and think freely as citizens of the United
States of America. War clouds had brought
many changes, among these a Modern Prob-
lems Course for senior girls and Pre-Induction
classes for senior boys. However, the seniors
ably accepted their position as the leaders of
Verona High School and used their varied abil-
ities to the entire student body's best advan-
ln their last year they chose to be gov-
erned by Ted Warner, Rose Marie Timken,
and Doris Lelong. Barbara Bender acted as
Editor of "Shadows" and had on her Editorial
Staff such seniors as Mary Ellen Tompson,
Doris Anne Hall, joyce Mills, Helen Marriott,
Hannelore Weise, Mildred Finkel, jean Bruso,
Mary O'Neil, Ruth Buck and jimmy Courter.
Fred lngold was elected President of the
Student Council, jacqueline Dempsey headed
the Assembly Committee, Peggy Herter the
Social Committee and Doris Lelong the Traffic
Patrol. These are but a few of the offices
held by the illustrious members of the Class
jimmy Courter, june Porter and Peg Her-
ter wereofficers of the Dramatic Club and
also held important parts in the school play.
Among the other seniors in the annual pro-
duction were Crace Tobler, Peg Shearer, Susan
Whealdon, Ruth Alice Cunningham. Marion
Hochheiser did a very splendid job as Editor-
in-Chief of the White Hornet and also en-
tered the sectional oratorical contest of the
American Legion as V.H.Sfs delegate. These
are but glimpses at the busy year that con-
fronted the Class of i944 as seniors. Socially
they attended Broadway productions, radio
programs, and numerous other activities. ln
December they played host to the student
body at the annual Christmas Dance. This
year's was better than ever and those who
gave their time and interest deserve much
credit. The thanks and appreciation of the
seniors for the fine Prom given for them by
the Class of l943 were deep and sincere.
Again, the i944 boys won athletic fame
for them and their school: Fred lngold as a
fine all-'round athlete, C-lenn Knowles, a
great track man, jimmy Courter, Ken Lilies-
trand, Frank Wright, Bob Lazar, Frank Tip-
ping, johnnie Farrar, jack Howat, Chuck
Bentley and innumerable others as extremely
welcome additions to their respective teams.
The girls lent their support in the form of
five senior cheerleaders out of the entire nine
and Doris Lelong, again swinging her baton.
The crystal ball of memory has brought us
back to the days of yesteryear when it seemed
a long time before we, the Class of l944,
would end our high school years, facing a
world-wide struggle for liberty in which many
of our former classmates are now taking part.
lt is to these boys, all over the world, that we
give our most sincere wishes for the very best
of good fortune. And let it be known that it
is our prayer that we shall be the last class of
Verona High School which must graduate into
a world of hatred and battle.

Hi! Here we are again, the class of '45
about to ascend its last rung of the V.H.S.
ladder. We have enjoyed a complete year
of blissg that of at last being upperclassmen.
Ah, what a feeling!! Now let us review for
you the happenings of our illustrious year.
Shortly before the close of our year as
struggling sophs, we elected our class of-
ficers. President, Edward lRedl Handvilleg
Vice-President, George lTeekl Bremser,
and Secretary-Treasurer, Carol Knoderer.
We juniors were well represented in the
field of sports. Bill Bruckmann showed out-
standing ability on the gridiron and jack
Hardebeck will fill the captaincy of next
year's team. Other able supporters were Bob
Beaton, George Bremser, Ed Laux and Bob
Fox. As for soccer, we propped the team
with such players as Leonard Tucci, Sven
Peterson, George Penndorf, Ralph Richard-
son, Vincent Oldham and Milton Zara. Sven
Peterson, Bob Beaton, Ralph Richardson,
George Penndorf and Paul Haberbush con-
tributed to the success of the baskelball
squad. The baseball team was fortunate in
having with them, on the diamond, Bob
Fox, jack Hardebeck, Leonard Tucci, George
Penndorf, Dick Wagner and Norvin Clover.
Outstanding on the track team were Sven
Peterson, jack Addis, joe Morley, Dave Wil-
son, George Bremser, Paul Haberbush, Earle
Gourter, jim Harris, and Ed Laux. The golf
team was also ably assisted by Bob Schneid-
er and Ralph Richardson.
Members of the class participating in the
band and orchestra were Gladys Purdy, Earle
Gourter, Marjorie Peltz, Mary McBratney,
and Dorothy Boyle. We are also very proud
of our two drum majorettes, Mary McBrat-
ney and Peggy Peck, and our one repre-
sentative in the pep unit, Mary Marfield.
Dave Wilson held up our end in the liter-
ary field as assistant editor of "Shadows"
We showed up again on the White Hornet
staff with George Bremser, Managing Edi-
torg Mary Marfield, Assistant News Editor,
Dave Wilson, Sports Editor, and Feature Ed-
itor, Earle Courter.
Although continually on the go through-
out the year, our class upheld its reputation
of always presenting fine dances lremem-
ber Ujumpin' live" and "Harvest Hop"l by
again coming through with a strictly solid
"Prom" as a grand finale for the benefit
of the departing Seniors.

Paul Haberbush, the jitterbug, noted for
his enlightening comments in class. His
inimitable sense of humor pops out in the

his classmates will commit suicide with him

September 9th found many students
hurrying along to the start of a new year
at Verona High School. Among them were
those who were to constitute the class of
l946, a class which was to make a name
for itself in school activities and one of
which its members might be proligyffg, be
a part. 2' '
Asa result of an electf r 'Alvin our
freshman year, the follo' dents be-
came officers of the .ore Class:
President, Arvid Danieisc ice-President,
Bucky Hatchettg Secretary, jean Morrison,
Treasurer, Peg Longley.
This year we started right out under full
sail by presenting a most successful dance
on October 30th, called the Goblin's Fling.
The Sophs were very pleased to view a fine
Upon the appearance of the pigskin, we
found Bucky Hatchett, Bob Cougarm, Richard
Carroll, Mike Bartolo, Bill White, Frank
Cummings and Norman Farley in there plug-
ging. The pride of all Verona High School
swelled when Bucky ran lOl yards setting
up a state record and scoring one of his
four touchdowns in our game with Madison.
Richard Carroll won fame for the Sopho-
more class when he swallowed up 82 yards
to make a touchdown in the Hawthorne
game, and we can't forget to give three
cheers for the touchdown Bucky brought us
in the game in which we set up our first
score ever made against Caldwell. We're
proud of all of these boys who fought in the
field and on the bench and did their part
to make this year of football Verona's most
Our class is proud to be so well repre-
sented in basketball this year with Bucky
Hatchett, Sam Vitale, Albert Denicola, Mar-
vin Solomon, and Arvid Danielson showing
hopeful talents, talents which we're sure
will continue to profit our victorious team.
While we're on the subject of the team,
we mustn't forget the swell job that our
two Sophs, jean Morrison and Carol Bald-
win did as cheerleaders to cheer our trium-
M On the soccer team this year were Albert
Denicola, Sam Vitale, jack Timken, Bob
Perry, and Dick Ferris who deserve credit
for their hard work as members of a team
which came through with flying colors.
The girls of the class of '46 proved that
they were no less capable in sports. Betty
Bresnahan, Regina Burns, Alberta Camb,
Mary Gearty, Sybil Hockstein, loan King,
Grace Kusenberg, Catherine Morley, Mary
Oldham, Rose Shillaci, Celestine Wiggins,
and Shirley Zink represented us very well
in the Girls' A. A.
The Sophomores stand out in the field
of music also. Our high school band and or-
chestra boast of such members as Daniel
Buck, Sonny Casta, Barbara Heuser, Bob
Perry, Carolyn Priest, lris Schuham, lack
Shelly, Bob Singewald, Alta Ann Turner,
and Richard Wolff.
ln the lineup of our spring sports there
was no shortage of Sophomores. At the
track events we saw Bucky Hatchett, Arvid
Danielson, Richard Carroll, Marvin Solomon,
George Hodgekiss, and Frank Cummings.
While Bill White and Donald Bruckmann
were doing a swell job with the tennis
team, the baseball team was benefited by
the talents of Sam Vitale, Dan Buck, Albert
Denicola, Mike Bartolo, Norman Farley,
Donald Clegg, john Puleo, and Melvin Siris.
This ends the history of the Class of '46
for the year of l943-l944, but it certainly
doesn't end our history for our entire high
school term because we shall continue to
accomplish good deeds in and for Verona
High School. l

lt started on a warm September morning
when a group of rather weak-kneed people
pushed their way through the noisy turmoil
to the bulletin board and glanced shyly at
the lists of names above their heads. Lofty
eyes of upper classmen gazed down upon
these people with mingling feelings of
amusement and disgust as they sent them
scurrying for a class, in the wrong direction.
Fortunately, for many of these folk, teachers
were tolerant enough to overlook tardiness.
So entered the class of '47, but we soon be-
came accustomed to our surroundings and
settled down to make a name and a place
The freshmen proved to be "jacks-of-all-
trades," as we enthusiastically participated
in the sports, clubs, and other activities
Vincent Marriott and lim Towart carried
our torch on the football field, but other
deserving Freshmen also sported uniforms.
Vincent Marriott, Dave Settle, and Glenn
Noback, held their own on the basketball
court. Spring-to-come seems very encour-
aging for sports, as many boys are anxiously
awaiting a chance to make the other teams.
However, all of us aren't hardened ath-
letes, but we possess a grand amount of
musical talent and are represented in the
C-lee Clubs. Providing the Freshman vocal
section are: Shirley-Ann Bowman, loan
Calder, Pat Dickinson, lean Donlan, Shirley
Douglass, Carol Ericson, janet Fox, Pat
Greene, lanet Hafer, Beth Lohr, Harriet
McCully, loan Milford, Helene Pfeiffer,
Helene Smithline, loan Strasser, Robert

bers ofthe Band and Orchestra are: P. Dick-
inson, S. Douglass, R. Herman, H. Pfeiffer,
l. Trackman lwho is in both band and or-
chestral, L. Appleton, F. Butler, D. Knod-
erer, A. Noble, l. Sampson, S. Thompson, D.

ln December we held our first class meet-
ing and elected Dave Settle, president, Dick
La Rue, vice-president, Carol Ericson, sec-
retary, and Ann Carpenter our trustworthy
treasurer. At this meeting we also made
plans for our dance to be held on March
3l. janet Fox was appointed "decorator-in-
chief," and Lee Appleton, lanice Dodd,
lanet Fox, Mac Hemion, ludy Krohn, Vin-
cent Marriott, lean Marshall, Marianne
Rowell, made her staff of assistants.
The Freshman class this year boasts a
full-fledged cheerleader, Nancy Edwards,
who is helping to build our reputation. We
are also supplied with "wizards" to bal-
ance the scholastic scale.
Though our first steps through the halls
of V.H.S. were shaky, we leave those halls
with a fine record behind us, and confi-
dence to return as successful sophomores
to carry on the good work we have begun

This year the Student Council, under the able leadership of Fred Ingold
as president, Sven Peterson, vice-president, and Norma Carmichael as secre-
gary-treayer, ha d the Ol as lpresentme body2Miss Howell did
a very commendable job as teacher-adviser. This student government has
carried on our belief in democratic rule of which we are so justly proud and
for which we now are fighting throughout the world.
The Council has promoted a new idea of forming a cabinet consisting
of various heads ot committees in the school and presided over by the
President of the Student Council. This Cabinet meets every other week
planning tor the regular meetings ot the Council which have taken place on
the alternate weeks. These meetings are attended by one representative
from each otlthe thirteen homerooms and from each club in the school that
has more than thirty members. In this way more business is accomplished
and less time wasted.

The Verona High School Student Council is represented in the Suburban
Conference Council by jacqueline Dempsey. jacqueline was elected Secre-
tary-Treasurer of the Conference last Spring.
The Student Council has devoted several of its meetings to the discus-
sion of the committee heads, their complaints, and helpful suggestions by
the students. One of the most successful dances of the year was "Cupid's
Capers," sponsored by the Council and under the supervision of the social
committee. At other meetings there were many discussions on a proposed
Youth Center in Verona and, although no immediate decision has been
reached, a committee of townspeople was organized to talk over the ideas
of the students.
Several times this year representatives from surrounding schools have
reported to the Council on management and activities of their schools. An-
other accomplishment of the Council during the year was the purchase of a
large atlas for the library in memory of Helen Manchester.
Through the Council many improvements have been made throughout
the school. They have tried to maintain neatness throughout the building
by keeping books and such articles out of the main hall and off the shelves
All in all, the l944 Council was one that any American youth might
be proud of for it carried to the halls of Verona High School the ideals of
democracy for which many of Verona's boys have and will give their lives.
lt has introduced new ideas for the better management of our school and
has progressed far in accomplishing business pertaining to a better school

The publication of "Shadows" this year
was made ever-increasingly difficult by
the shortage of materials brought on by
the war. Instead of the usual deadline of
March 3lst for those getting "Shadows"
assembled and for the printers, the students
working on it were faced with a deadline
of a month earlier, February 29th. How-
ever, the staff, under the capable leadership
of Barbara Bender, has worked especially
hard and the result is a better-than-ever
yearbook, of which every student in V.H.S.
can be justly proud.
A great deal of credit for the success of
"Shadows" must go to the business man-
ager, Hannelore Weise, and to the adver-
tising managers, jean Bruso and Mildred
Finkel for their splendid work in directing
the finances of the yearbook. joyce Mills
headed the circulation staff, and she and
her competent staff of homeroom repre-
sentatives did an excellent job of soliciting
subscriptions and collecting monthly pay-
ments. As literary editor, Helen Marriott
and her staff worked very energetically to
make the "Shadows" of l944 go down in
V.H.S. history. Mary Ellen Thompson proved
a fine choice as head of photography.
Backed by her staff she achieved splendid
results, despite war-time shortages and pri-
orities. Two members of her staff, Ed
Pischl and Ken Halverson, avid camera fans,
took many of the photographs in "Sha-
dows" They both deserve our congratula-
tions for their splendid work. The art de-
partment, headed by Doris Ann Hall, helped
make "Shadows" this year one of the most
artistic we have ever had. Our adviser, Miss
Kautzmann, gave much of her time and
ability. The staff very gratefully acknowl-
edges her guidance which was an invaluable
aid in the production of the yearbook,
The cover of "Shadows" this year is very
unique and decidedly different from any
that we have had before. lt is of embossed
leather fabrikoid in a very original design,
padded underneath. The padding is certain
to insure a cover that will last indefinitely.
Credit for this new idea goes to our editor,
Barbara Bender, who worked unceasingly
and gave up much of her leisure time in
producing a very successful "Shadows"
"Shadows" is dedicated this year to
Major Charles Brush, now serving with the
United States Marine Corps in Bougainville.
Major Brush went to Montclair State Teach-
ers College and after graduating from there
in l937, acted as superviser in a C.C.C.
Camp, until he came to Verona in l939.
While at Verona, he taught History, Social
Studies, and acted as assistant football
coach. At that time he held a commission
of 2nd Lieutenant in the Marine Corps
Reserve. He was called into service in l94O
and sent to Parris Island. While there he
was promoted to a lst Lieutenant and soon
after was sent overseas to Guadalcanal
where he remained from August 26 to
October lO. ln the best selling book of
some months ago, "Guadalcanal Diary," by
Richard Tregaskis, Major Brush was men-
tioned as being in charge of a patrol that
wiped out an entire japanese landing party.
As a result of this heroic action, he was
promoted to the rank of Major, and re-
ceived a number of citations, among which
was the Army Silver Star. After C-uadal-
canal, Major Brush went to Australia for a
rest. About three months ago he was sent
to Bougainville and as far as we know, is
lt is indeed fitting that we dedicate our
"Shadows" of i944 to a man whom we all
know and admire and who is fighting now,
among other things, to preserve our right
to publish "Shadows" and dedicate it to
anyone we choose.
In these troubled times, we should all
be very thankful that we are able to pub-
lish our yearbook as in years before, regard-
less of the fact that such a terrific struggle
Miss Roberta Kautzmann
is being fought throughout the world. A
struggle fought by many of our own boys-
boys who only a few years before were
reading their own "Shadows" Let us never
forget that they are fighting to protect our
right to publish "Shadows" and enjoy it.
Let us always remember how much we owe
them, and-let us hope that in future years
those who publish "Shadows" will be able
to do so without any mention of war.
THE WHITE HORNET
ln spite of numerous wartime difficulties, such as the acute shortage
of newsprint and the scarcity of ads, Verona High's newspaper, the White
Hornet, was successfully printed during the past school year. Although these
difficulties made it necessary to cut down on the number of issues per year,
the "Hornet" continued to take a prominent place in V.H.S. life and was
enthusiastically read by most of the students.
Largely responsible for the success of the White Hornet was Editor-in-
Chief Marion Hochheiser. Marion put a great deal of time and effort into
her job and deserves plenty of credit. Her editorials were invariably well
written and meaningful. Assisting her in her numerous duties was Managing
Editor George Bremser.
During the year, numerous special features appeared which contrib-
uted towards making the White Hornet of, by, and for the students. Among
these were "Letters to the Editor," an Hlnquiring Reporter," and an "Average
Student Pollf' For the first time, the paper sponsored a dance, which took
place in the Spring, and was most successful.
F This year, as is customary, the personnel of the paper was divided into
hstaffs, each of which contributed to the success of the organization
w o e.

Of course the primary aim of any school newspaper is to gather and
report school happenings and Verona is no exception. With a wide awake
news staff numbering over a dozen, all the events of V.H.S. were duly
covered, written up, and recorded in the pages of the White Hornet. june

The curtain rises on another year of fun and work in the Dramatic Club.
As it rises we find it is still the most popular club with an ever-increasing
membership each year. Despite the war and its difficulty, we are still going
through with a cheerful group of members who are always willing to work.
Our officers who carried us through the year were: President, jimmy
Courterg Vice-President, june Porter, Secretary, Peggy Herter, and Treasurer,
Muffie Shaw. A lot of credit goes to these people who did such a swell job.
The first thing that we chalked up on the social list was the initiation
dance which brought in all the i943 members. This proved to be quite a
hilarious occasion with all the peculiar costumes and the varied ordeals that
all the Neophytes had to go through. A good many members came in at this
This year the war difficulties have gone down some so that it was
possible for the club to attend an annual play in New York that had to be
postponed last year. They saw "Lovers and Friends" with Katharine Cornell
and Raymond Massey. This was'a lot of fun and everyone hopes that it can
be done again in the future.
Another thing that was done this year, that had to be postponed last
year, was theichool play which was a glorious occasion that everyone looked
forward to with eager anticipation. The play was "Growing Pains," a three-
act play written by Aurania Rouverol. The cast was as follows: Earle Courter,
Dave Wilson, Nan Fifoot, Grace Tobler, june Porter, jimmy Courter, Susan
Wealdon, Peggy Shearer, and Bob Dickinson. Seeing that no school play was
given last year this one made up for the one which we missed. With this
wonderful cast we couldn't go far wrong in saying that the play was quite a
success. The play had both a new and old slant on unsophisticated youth
that are growing up. George and Terry Maclntyre were the problem children
that the story deals with. The father tries to keep the children under control
but the mother is soft-hearted and lets the children do what they wish. The
mother and father throw a party for the children with a variety of both
sexes. Terry and her new dress don't go over with her boyfriend because of
a new girl that arrives and takes all the other girls' boyfriends away. After
George gets thrown into jail for passing a red light, Prudence tells him that
she thinks he is too young. Many things happen from there on that give
you a better viewpoint of young children, and everybody that saw it said
it was quite "the thing."
This year, like last, the club was divided into two sections. The junior
Dramatic Club and the Senior Dramatic Club. The junior Dramatic with the
able guidance of Miss Lindeman has not done very much with plays but
has spent much of its time on voice, training, facial expressions and tone.
However, they did give one play that was presented for their own benefit.
The officers of this club were: joyce Sampson, President, Patsy Dickinson,
Vice-President, and Ann Carpenter, Secretary-Treasurer. This was the first
time we have specialized in something of this sort and it worked out very
well. Next year when these members come into the Senior Club they will
be all set to carry on with what the Seniors are leaving with us.
' The Club hasn't done much in the way of giving plays in assembly.
But the one thing that was given was the radio play, "They Burned the Books."
This was first given on one of the large stations and then was copy-written
so that it was especially adapted for school work. The cast included Bob
Hayes, jimmy Courter, Peggy Herter, Hannalore Weise, Steve Bonta. This
was very good and was given five times more, showing that it was quite a
Under the able guidance of Mr. Butterworth, who is given most of the
credit, the Dramatic Club has done some of its best work. So the curtain
descends on a year that was filled with fun and excitement. We hope that
we have such an enthusiastic group that will follow in this year's footsteps.

, Ln' A ,A ' During i943-44, the Glee Club once again participated in a most enjoy-
'V A 6 able year of song. As always the Glee Club was divided into two sections,
l,,.,5'i i the girls and the boys respectively. The girls chose as their officers Berna-
dette Maack, President and Gladys Purdy, Secretary. They were ably
directed by Miss Lewis who did much to further their success, On the other
hand, the boys had a fine time guided by Mr. Schill and his many talents.
They chose no special leader but did just as well to create a fine atmosphere
The Glee Club entertained as a unit many times during the year to
the great pleasure of the student body and faculty. At Christmas they gave
a really splendid program in which there was some fine group singing and
also very excellent solo work. Among those who displayed their fine voices
were Alice Shurtleff, Gladys Purdy, and jack Addis. They were accompanied
by the twinkling fingers of Norma Carmichael on the piano. joyce Mills
won honors for herself and the club by being selected for the All-State
ln the spring they combined with the band in a concert based on
"Carmen." The boys and girls of this organization gave much of their time
and have certainly given the school many moments of joy in this year of
wartime difficulties. The leaders and advisers deserve the entire school's
BAND AND ORCHESTRA
School life and organization have benefited immensely during i943-44,
by the excellent music provided by the Band and Orchestra. lvlr. Schill again
rendered his indispensable services. Without his patient and understanding
guidance, the year's music activities would have suffered greatly.
Without the pep and color that the Band added during the fall, our
football season would not have been nearly so successful. They played at
all of our home games and carried the colors of V.H.S. to Caldwell for the
Thanksgiving Day game. The rousing marches, school songs and the beau-
tiful arrangement of our alma mater, set the scene perfectly. They also
played in numerous pep-rallies during the year and some of the Band's
members displayed their talents in the Amateur Hour given in assembly.
Bob Howard, Ken Liljestrand, Steve Bonta, and Bill Wharton formed their
own very solid aggregation and entertained in assemblies and for dancing at
noon time. The Band also took part in many community programs.
The combined group of the Band and Orchestra played in several musi-
cal assemblies and gave their assistance to different groups who put on
assemblies. A musical festival was presented in the Spring, The Parent-
Teacher Association meetings were often enlivened by the delightful music
presented by these people.
The musical department of V.H.S. was honored by having Roger Her-
mann and Stephen Bonta selected for the All-State Orchestra,
The entire school is grateful for the fine piece of work this organization
has done. lt has certainly added much to the school year of i943-44. We,
the students of Verona High School, appreciate the hours spent in practice
and hard work by the Band and Orchestra members. ln this year of sadness
and grief, the group has done a splendid job of keeping up the morale of
V. H. S.

International Students' Society
This year the International Stu-
dents' Society, underthe able direction
of Miss Cheney, was the best it has
ever been. The officers were: Presi-
dent, Ruth Alice Cunningham, Vice-
President, Dorothy May St. Clair, Sec-
retary, Mary Ellen Thompsong Treas-
urer, jacqueline Dempsey. Rose Marie
Timken provided delicious refresh-
ments for each meeting.
The purpose of the l.S.S. is to create
a French atmosphere outside the class-
room. Throughout the meetings of the
year, there were many different kinds
of entertainment, including French
folk songs and games. "Le Petit
Guignolf' a puppet show starring
Guignol, the national French puppet,
was enjoyed by everyone. The Christ-
mas meeting was the highlight of the
year. After the ceremony of the
Creche, la Dame de Noel visited the
party and presented gifts to all the
"good" members. Every meeting was
closed with singing "La Marseillaisef'
The l. S. S. presented an assembly
program in French. lt consisted of six
skits, each one dramatizing French
holiday customs: Noel, la Fete des Roi,
Poisson d'Avril, la Fete de jeanne
D'Arc, a Breton Pardon, and Bastille
The l.S.S. activities were enjoyed by
all its members this year.
With Miss Clayton doing a splendid
job as faculty adviser the Spanish Club
has spent a very enjoyable and profit-
able year, looking into the customs and
life of our Latin American neighbors.
The club met regularly every other
Thursday. At these meetings refresh-
ments were served, songs sung, Span-
ish spoken, and all in all, a fine atmos-
phere was created in which to learn
much about the Spanish language.
Thus in its second year of existence
the Spanish Club has achieved great
heights and has obtained for itself a
position as one of the most popular
and worthwhile of all the school clubs.
junior Red Cross
Again this year the Red Cross came
through. Under the able direction of
Mrs. Lape and Mrs. MacDonald, the
club spent much of its time bringing
cheer to the less fortunate and helping
to make life happier for wounded
servicemen. All records were broken
during the Fall drive when a total of
eighty-eight dollars was collected. The
girls elected Helen Marriott as Presi-
dent, Anne Ferris as Vice-President,
Doris Anne Hall as Secretary, and
Cloria Pataky as Treasurer.
For all of the excellent assemblies
this year, we have a very capable As-
sembly Committee, with Miss Howell
as adviser and lacqueline Dempsey as
chairman, to thank. They have done
an excellent job, of which the favor-
able reception of the student body is
enough proof. The programs have
been varied, including movies, music,
speakers, quizzes, sports, and an
amateur show. Our hats are off to
you for such fine entertainment.
With Miss Clayton as adviser and
Peggy Herter as Student chairman,
this committee did a truly remarkable
job, especially when you consider all
of the difficulties that confronted
them. lt is these people whom we
have to thank for much of the prep-
arations which were necessary before
any of the year's dances could be really
successful. The committee and its
leaders deserve much credit and we
are sure the entire student body is
grateful to them.
Lost and Found
The duty of this committee was to
collect and catalogue lost articles
found on the school premises. Each
day after school one of the members
remained in room 4 to return lost
articles to their owners. Under the
supervision of Miss Cheney, Carol
Petterson, the chairman, selected five
members who carried out the year's
activity. They have attained the repu-
tation of being one of the school's
The Hall Patrol, organized just two
years ago, is this year running smooth-
ly under the direction of Richard
Sager. Its main duty is to keep stu-
dents quiet and out of the corridors
during lunch periods. The patrol has
succeeded in doing this to a satisfac-
tory degree. The chairman was assist-
ed in his job by Mr. Wermuth, adviser.
The Traffic Patrol
The Traffic Committee this year is
under the able direction of M'ss Ehr-
mann, Doris Lelong and Bobby Beaton.
Its object, as always, is to assure
swiftness and encourage order in the
passing of classes. The committee
members are always at their posts be-
tween classes to enforce the traffic
laws. They also supervise fire drills
and attend to the traffic at assemblies.
Locker Room Patrol
This year the locker room patrol
has done a splendid job under the able
management of Barbara Silver and
Organized by Mrs. Van Houten and
Mr. Smith, the patrol has completed
its second year of checking lockers, re-
cording the names of all students who
entered, and keeping the locker rooms
in order. Two members absent when
the picture was -taken were Virginia
and Celestine Wiggins.
One of the noteworthy committees
that functioned this year was the Cafe-
teria Patrol. This committee was di-
vided to operate at both lunch periods
for the purpose of maintaining order.
Under the capable leadership of Mrs.
Lissner and the chairman, Margaret
Longley, the patrol, consisting of elev-
en members, managed to keep things
running smoothly. This patrol owed
much of its success to the cooperative

Laurels to the Verona High School Football Team for l943, and its very
able coaches, Mr. Walter "Dutch" Wermuth and Mr. Nelson "Skipper"
Smith. These two coaches were the nucleus of the most successful team
in Verona's history.
The team this year made tremendous progress in that they wound up
with a record of four wins against three defeats. The four thoroughly van-
quished teams were Summit, l4-Og Madison, 34-75 Passaic Valley, 6-Og and
Millburn, Zl-13. The two teams that seem to be our jinxes, Glen Ridge and
Caldwell, defeated us by scores of 31-O and 38-l3, respectively. Hawthorne,
a school much out of our category, took us on an off day, Bl -6.
These victories were not only recognized as such by scores, but also
by a number of "first time" occurrences. This season marked the first defeat
ever for Summit, Madison, last year's conference champs, were also beaten,
Caldwell, traditional rivals, were scored on for the first timeg and three
Suburban Conference teams were beaten, placing Verona in third place on
the Conference rating.
The prospect is indeed bright for the i944 season also, of l9 men
receiving letters, only five will be lost through graduation and under the
very capable hand of Mr. Wermuth, woe be unto the teams which oppose
Verona next season. Sounds rather startling but actions speak louder than
words and from the enthusiasm and fight shown this year we're sure of
Lettermen from this year's squad are: Bob Lazar, captain of the event-
ful i943 season, Ken Liljestrand, jim Courter, Frank Wright, Frank Tipping,
Dick Wagner, Bob Cougan, Eddie Laux, jim Dox, lb johnson, Dave Wilson,
Bill Bruckman, Bob Eaton, Bob Fox, Bucky Hatchett, Dick Carroll, George
Bremser, Norvin Clover, and next year's Captain-Elect, john Hardebeck.
The first five men mentioned will be lost, but with such a squad of
lettermen returning next year, keep your eye on the V.H.S. football team
The Verona High School soccer team this year turned in another suc-
cessful season under the watchful eyes of Coach "Doc" Goeltz and Captain
Fred lngold. ,
Perhaps the most outstanding feat of the season was, that for the first
time Harrison fell in the wake of a strong Verona team twice in one season.
The score, being the same in both games, was Verona 2, Harrison O. This
is even more outstanding because Harrison was State Champion last year.
Besides defeating Harrison twice, Kearny, Montclair and East Orange were
each overpowered once apiece. The two ties this season each occurred with
Montclair and Kearny. One defeat this year was suffered at the hands of
East Orange, and they were beaten later on in the season.
This year's Verona High team was indeed fortunate in having four
fellows on the All-State Eleven. Captain Fred lngold and Sam Vitale earned
titles on the first team of center halfback and inside left respectively. Hold-
ing positions on the second team were George Penndorf, outside right, and
Lennard Tucci, right fullback. These positions on the All-State team were
a well deserved honor for all four fellows. Verona had more men on the
All-State team than any other school in New jersey.
Members of the team who will be lost th'rough graduation are Captain
Fred lngold and john Farrar, center forward. The very able manager, Harry
Greene, will also graduate. lt will be a very serious loss to the team not to
see these fellows on the field next fall. '
The following are the capable members of the squad who made up the
backbone of the i943 squad: Captain Fred lngold at center halfbackg
Captain-Elect for next year Sven Peterson, at left halfbackg Pete Healy,
right halfbackg Milton Zara, at left fullback, Lou "Barrel,' Tucci, at right
fullback, Sam Vitale, inside left, and jim Harris, inside right. Still more
outstanding members of this yearis team were George Penndorf, outside
right, Ralph Richardson, playing outside leftg and john Farrar, at center
forward. Rounding out the team with a bang was the very capable goalie,
The l943 record of five wins and two ties against only one defeat
speaks very well for itself, and is something for the l944 team to shoot at.
The i943 Verona High School soccer team really made a record for itself in
a most successful season. f , k

Eleven wins, four losses - not bad for an unexperienced basketball
team! That was the record made by the squad of fellows representing the
school this year.
The squad was rather "green" at the beginning of the season and there
were only two veterans back from last year - Captain Fred lngold and
Sophomore extraordinary, "Bucky" Hatchett. Making up the rest of the team
were Sven Peterson, Bob Lazar, Bob Beaton, George Penndorf and jack
Howat. These were the boys who put "their all" into each of the fifteen
games for Coach "Skipper" Smith and the student body.
The team was a high scoring outfit as their record shows: Verona 45,

Some individual statistics show the strength and quality of the team.
"Bucky" Hatchett had a sensational season with 268 points for the season
- a l7.8 point-per-game average. Captain Fred lngold was next with l74
points and a ll.6 average. Following lngold was Sven Peterson with lil
points which was an average of 7.4 points per game.
The team as a whole scored 7l3 points while the opposition had 520.
lt is interesting to note that the total score of Hatchett, lngold, and Peter-
son for the year is 553 points-or 33 more than the opposition for the year.

Verona and Madison to determine third place, the Hillbilly squad drubbed
Coach "Skipper" Smith put a lot of hard work into the team this year
and his work was justified by the splendid record of accomplishment by the
squad. He will have a good nucleus for next year's team with such men as
Peterson, Hatchett, Beaton, and Penndorf--all seasoned veterans.

A long, tough season appeared in store for Verona's l944 baseball squad
when Coach Paul "Doc" Goeltz called first practice last March, for only
'four of last year's lettermen were still in school. However, the outlook was
considerably brightened by the appearance of many newcomers, Freshmen
and otherwise, not to mention the numerous fellows who played ball the
year before. ln fact, this squad was the largest Verona has ever had: 45
embryonic "Babe Ruths," including l8 Freshmen. ,
Captain Fred lngold, star shortstop, Sammy Vitale, youthful outfielder,
and pitchers johnny Farrar, our lefty ace, and Bob Fox, the Sophomore
standout of last year, were the four veterans left and their presence added
a great deal of "polish" to an otherwise "green" team. When April 26th
rolled around and the Hillbillies took the field against Passaic Valley, the
Varsity squad looked something like this: Farrar and Fox, pitchers, jack
Hardebeck and Bill Powers, backstopsg George Penndorf on the first sack,
lngold, Wesley Smith, and Leonard Tucci in the infield, and Vitale, Dwight
Hemion, and jim Towart, outfielders. This seemed to be a good defensive
squad, but hitting power was a question to be answered during the season.
If numbers mean anything, then VHS had either a very good, or a
very bad year, depending on which way you are superstitious. The schedule
called for l3 games. Since the Suburban Conference was again split up into
two divisions, 4 games were played with Caldwell and 3 with Glen Ridge.
Non-conference tilts included 2 with Passaic Valley, 2 with Montclair, and
l each against Bloomfield and Immaculate.
While the Maroon and White had a successful season, Coach Goeltz is
no doubt happily contemplating the future, next Spring, to be more precise.
There were only 3 Seniors on the team this year, and with all the talent
displayed by those up-and-coming underclassmen, the l945 "nine" ought
to write an even brighted chapter in the pages of "Shadows,"
Prospective members of the baseball team are: Leonard Tucci, Albert
Denicola, Glen Noback, Sammy Vitale, Mike Bartolo, Norvin Clover, Bill
Powers, Mike Cestone, jack Hardebeck, jimmy Dox, Red Handville, Coach
"Doc" Goeltz, David Settle, Vincent Marriott, Wesley Smith, Bobby Fox,

The Track Team in i944 has a wonderful reputation to live up to.
This will be its seventh year as a team, being organized in l938. After two
years to get really going, it has not lost a dual meet since the year l94O.
Winning eight meets in l94O, seven in l94l, seven in l942, and five in
l943, we have a skein of twenty-seven straight victories. These victories are
not only over every other team in the Suburban Conference, but also over
such schools as Mountain Lakes and Montclair Academy.
Not only in dual competition has the Track Team scored victories, but
also in multiple-competition meets. Verona High School has won the Sub-
urban Conference Track Championship for the past two years, and we see
no reason why we won't be able to take it in l944. ln the Newark Invitation
Track Meet last year we missed winning the Group ll cup by only three
points. But the greatest victory of all was when Verona won the Group I
t+5taste TrackrChamptonshipilas1T1ear atdvlontclaiifbeating dwn the optfsition
of teams from all over New jersey. lt was in this meet that Verona men
smashed five state records.
Verona has the power to win every meet on the slate this year. Although
our "one-man track team" Bill Morrison has graduated, there is a battery
of no less than thirteen letter men still in school, even though nine of these
are seniors and should graduate this year. Led by co-captains Glenn Knowles
and Ted Warner, the entire list of letter men is jack Howatt, Ken Butt, Earle
Courter, Ed Laux, "Bucky" Hatchett, Sven Peterson, "Chuck" Bentley, jim
Harris, Willard McCumsey, Bob Hayes, and Robert Howard.
However, to continue our string of twenty-seven victories, we have to
plow through the toughest schedule that we have ever had, This schedule
contains at least one school we have never engaged before because our first
scheduled meet with them last year was rained out. Our track schedule for
Mountain Lakes .... ........ A pril 26 Summit ............ ....... M ay 20
Clifford Scott ....... ......... M ay 3 Caldwell ......,..,...... ....... M ay 23
Newark Invitation .......................... May 6 Suburban Conference .........,,........... May 27
Glen Ridge ................,................... May lO State Meet ...................................... june 3
The Track Team would not be a championship team if it were not for
our coach, "Skipper" Smith. His untiring efforts have been the one factor

The purposes of the Girls' A. A. are to
provide recreation and keen competition in
sports and to help give the girls the physical
fitness they will need in the years to come.
This year the executive officers of the A.
President .................................. Ruth Alice Cunningham
Vice-President ....... ...... , .. .............. Martha Nelson
Secretary ........,,.................................. Catherine Morley
Treasurer ....,...........................................,... Mary Cearty
The Student Council Representative was
Mary McBratney. Mrs. Van Houten contrib-
uted much of her time and knowledge as the
adviser to this group.
The fall activity consisted of hockey with
the girls competing against our rival, Caldwell.
During the winter the girls renewed this com-
petition in basketball. A swimming club was
organized under Martha Nelson. Baseball and
archery took the limelight in the spring.
"The Leap Year lump" given March 5 by
the A. AL was a great success. One-third of
the profits went to charitable organizations.
Our hats are off to these girls for doing
such a splendid job in keeping this association
up on top.

'Twas a bright afternoon last fall when a select few - students and
teachers - put their heads together and came up with the decision that
just about everyone in V.H.S. had been waiting for so anxiously. The cheer-
leaders were chosen at last. Nine vivacious cuties to stir up the school spirit
and inspire the teams. And who could have done a better job than Carol
Baldwin, Nancy Edwards, Mary Elizabeth Hageman, Margaret Herter, Mary
Marfield, loyce Mills, leanne Morrison, Martha Shaw and Norma Smith.
Mary Elizabeth, Margaret, Norma and Marthaare finishing their second
year as cheerleaders while loyce completes her third. All of these are Seniors
and will graduate this june. For Mary, leanne, Carol and Nancy this is their
first year and it has proven very successful. Nancy, incidentally, was the
first Freshman girl to ever have the job of cheerleading.
With Mary Elizabeth as their captain, these girls worked long and
hard to perfect the motions that added novelty to their cheers - some new,
some old. Afternoons and Saturday mornings during football season they
practiced in the gym and out on the lawng but turned to the stage with the
coming of basketball.
At the "pep" rallies, V.H.S. school spirit began to soar when the cheer-
leaders started introducing those peppy songs and cheers and came out with
their "rugged, cartwheels. lt was boosted even further at the "bonfire
rally" when the girls led the snake dance all over Bloomfield Avenue.
Throughout the year the teachers and students have praised the abilities
of these nine cheerleaders and it seems to be the opinion of everyone that
they are THE best in Verona' Highis history. Our hats off to you, girls, for
the best job ever done.
