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. 1 l DEDICATICDN 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 Major 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 I alone. C. VINCENT CEICER, Supervising Principal 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 were over. 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.

SHADOWS EDITORS 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 impossible. 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. ab.-A ,uae tb-e-Ps xb 3 icxsq g RUTH CAMERON "Chick" Weakness: Chocolate marshmallow sundaes.

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 very successfully. 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 V.H.S. 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.

' ' "vt si! ii f' - in Q Z Z L... M6 0 ,' SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS President .............................................,.... john Warner Vice-President ..... ............. D oris Lelong Secretary and Treasurer ...... Rose Marie Timken 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, 260 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- rage. 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 of '44, 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. 027 280 Last Will and Testament We the Class ot l944, of the Henry B.

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. BLESS ,EM ALL ' Paul Haberbush, the jitterbug, noted for his enlightening comments in class. His inimitable sense of humor pops out in the strangest places. "Miss Howell, therels a screw loose in this seat." Mark Harris is utterly disgusted. None of his classmates will commit suicide with him on accounta because his theories are over their heads. So solly, Mark! Note to Faculty: l Don't you wish we were all as studious as Garol Petterson and Gloria Pataky? lKeep it up, girls!! Margie Nelson-How's the Navy doing?

Peggy Longley 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 turnout, 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 successful. 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- phant teams. 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 033 l .

David Settle Vice-President ,....... .... D ick LaRue Secretary and Treasurer ,,,,, Carol Ericson 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 for ourselves. The freshmen proved to be "jacks-of-all- trades," as we enthusiastically participated in the sports, clubs, and other activities concerning V.H.S. 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 Nevett, Alan Noble, Eddie Williams. Mem- 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. Oakley. Also we have many with dramatic ability. 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 as Freshmen. 035 llliiiilffl , Y 1 A X I , qv: , X ,4 :LQ X ,I W 'llk' ':' ni ua III' 9 X,o?1'Ml' fxekv lmullhf x X l Y wull11lu. 2 ' lIlt,!g,lrd,l A f"'!

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. First row, left to right: lacqueline Dempsey, Sven Peterson, Fred lngold, Norma Carmichael, Peggy Longley. Second row: Peggy Herter, Barbara Silver, Miss Howell lFaculty Adviserl, David Wilson, Hannelore Weise, Doris Lelong. 38 o 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 after school. 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 and town.

SHADOWS 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 still there. 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 Barbara Bender Editor David Wilson Assistant Editor Miss Roberta Kautzmann Faculty Adviser 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. 041 420 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. Center: Editor-in-Chief Marion Hochheiser.

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 party. 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 success. 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. 045 COMBINED GLEE CLUBS First row, left to right: jean Calder, Shirley Douglass, joan Allen, Gloria Axworthy, Bar- bara S i I v e r, Bernadette Maack, Gladys Purdy, Pat Dickenson, Helene Pfeiffer, Harriet McCully.

'T r A xi' , 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- 460 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 of song. 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 Chorus. 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 appreciation. 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.

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 Day. The l.S.S. activities were enjoyed by all its members this year. Spanish Club 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. Assembly Committee 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. Social Committee 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 indispensable committees. 049 500 Hall Patrol 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 Harry Edgren. 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. Cafeteria Patrol 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 student body. f. +g . 4l 3 2 69 Q E E , Q W r ' X A 5 A E' v 1" .1 f X 0 Q . xg x V9 f o W f UW 1 X W ?

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 results. 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 for l944. SOCCER 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, Albert Denicola. 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 First row: left to right: Frank Greasley, Dick Tow- ers, Bill Garrabrant, Bob Dickenson, Arthur Wal- scheid, Frank Butler, Tom Murray.

V004-V0 I Wocwc ,H-.muff 053 BASKETBALL 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, College High 351 Verona 50, Mountain Lakes l6, Verona 38, Glen Ridge 4l 3 Verona 94, Faculty 3l 3 Verona 2l, Caldwell 20, Verona 26, Glen Ridge 38, Verona 74, Montclair Academy 43, Verona 33, Caldwell 393 Verona 39, Glen Ridge 50, Verona 43, Mountain Lakes 30, Verona 62, Caldwell 353 Verona 34, Glen Ridge 323 Verona 56, Montclair Academy 333 Verona 55, College High 423 Verona 43,i1al1:lwell 35. . .S S-.. 2 ..2- 2.,n 54 I 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. ln a post-season Suburban Conference game, which was played between Verona and Madison to determine third place, the Hillbilly squad drubbed Madison 58-29. 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. l'1'1aI'll'1.

S e c o n d row George Penndorf Paul Haberbush, Frank Tip ping, Bucky Hatchett jack Howet, Bill Bruck BASEBALL 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, George Penndorf, captain, Fred lngold, john Farrar. 055 560 TRACK 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 i944 follows: 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 ................,...................

His untiring efforts have been the one factor that has held the track team together. Ask any track man and he will agree with you that "Skipper" is tops.

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.

THE CHEERLEADERS '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. - , A .M - , W , .1 Y , ,nu ' 2 sk is 9 Q, is 1, 1, x 3, v A 1 ,Z W V5 YQ A Q A K if jcfin Fa ,MA ,, qw, g X 2 Best ffgr Lggkfng --.
