Whitehorne High School have attended school with a war raging about them in the outside world. Al- though none of them have seen actual combat, they have made countless sacrifices for themselves and families on the homefront. Many of our boys have left the portals of our school to join the forces of Uncle Sam. These boys and girls are our pride and joy, and they are bring- ing a bit of V.H.S. to every corner of the world. This year the "Shadows" staff is employing a military theme throughout the yearbook. The cover starts the theme, and the book follows it on through. The staff is proud to have a military theme for the edition but it is their most sincere wish that in the very near future all military ideas will be forgotten. , DEDICATION It is with the utmost pleasure that the Shadows staff dedicates this twenty-fourth edition of Shadows to Paul W. Goeltz. "Doc" is celebrating his Silver Anniversary as teacher and athletic coach in Verona High School. During his twenty-five years with us "Doc" has had the finest reputation on the athletic Held and off. We extend heartiest congratulations and wish that the forthcoming years will bring him honor and prosperity. - The big day has arrived for the Class of 1945, and the next step has been taken in a great ad- venture. On the attitude and example of the senior class depends the success of the school year. They lead the way. Your class and the school, have selected wisely, as your leaders have done a great job, and the faculty have been delighted with your conduct, scholarship, and sportsmanship. Your home, school, and community have tried to help prepare the way for greater things. May the influence of your earlier life fashion a course that future events may change slightly, but always help push you on to a pleasant and successful life. Best wishes to the Class of 1945! WILLIAM H. SAMPSON, Principal. ADMINISTRATION General Headquarters and M .P s Following the last war, young people were thinking of the adventures ahead in postwar days, hopeful that we should never again be plunged into war. Despite our high hopes, we successively passed through a mild depression, a period of wild speculation, then a severe panic and pro- longed depression, ending with the present war. You young men and women of today are fac- ing the same hardships and vicissitudes of life. It is important that the adventurous spirit endure in each generation. With your youth, strength, and courage this war will be ended, then the grand adventure of striving for a better world will be yours. VINCENT GEIGER, Supervising Prirzripal.

WE WERE- Entering Freshmen-bolder Sophs, Then upperclassmen fone who scoffs at all the rest and thinks he's greatj, All these-and now we'll graduate. REMEMBERING- The cares and fun of high school days, The track meets, ball games, dances, plays, The friends we had and how we tried To boost our teams-out joy and pride. AND NOW-- For us a new world lies ahead A change from student to co-edg To Hier, soldier, or marine, Things we must learn, lands to be seen. BARBARA BARTLEY L25 UKRLES H ATHAW AY BILL SOLEAU U41 The whole Class of 1945 was sorry to see some of its own boys leave the school and enter the military service of our country. Most of this happened during the past year, and it has stripped our class down to a mere eighty-six students. When we began as Freshmen we were over the hundred mark. On these two pages we have tried to catch like- nesses of these boys and portray them to you. All of them are not getting diplomas and graduating with the Class of '45, but they have been our classmates sometime during our high school days and we would like to remember them and pay tribute to them. It is hard to get photographs of all of them but we have tried hard. The boys are jack Cougan, Dick Wagner, Dave Bamford, Qharlie Hathaway, joe Morley, Dick Soleau, jack Avis, and Art Singewald.

G eorge Bremser Vice-President ...A.,, ...,,.... B ill Bruckmann Secretary ...,..,.w.. ..,...... D oris Madsen September, 1941!! The old and worldly wise alumni of Verona Junior High School stalked into the halls of the Henry B. Whitehorne High School, looking forward to a prosperous career and improving the school. How self-confident we were! And how soon we changed. Confronted by the towering seniors, we didn't feel quite so big as we had in junior High. Their haughty stares soon shrank us to the status of the usual Freshmang however, we started our high school career in true blue by electing Sven Peterson as Presidentg jack Cougan as Vice-President, and as Secretary-Treasurer, Barbara Sniffen. In addition to many others, Sven Peterson, Jack Cougan and Bob Fox represented the class of " '45" in the world of V.H.S, sports on the track, gridiron, and diamond respectively. George Bremser, our boy genius, brought us additional fame by appearing as a quiz kid on a radio program. Along with Spring came our "record" dance-"The Jumpin' Jive." After taking a lot of hard knocks we finally rose to the rank of sophisticated "Sophs." Sven Peterson ran for a second term and defeated all opponents! As Vice- President and Secretary we chose Bill Bruckmann and Norma Carmichael. Early in the year we put our heads together and came up with a purse-filling idea- the Harvest Hop-another record dance. Z. Our Freshman stars in sports returned to greater glories. Other shining lights in the field were Bill Bruckmann, Ed Handville, Dave Wilson, George Bremser and Dick Wagner, on the gridiron, in soccer, Sven Peterson, George Penndorf and Pete Healyg in basketball, Sven Peterson, Bob Beaton and Ralph Richardson and Dick Gartley excelled, on the diamond, Bob Fox, Tucci and Beaton, and in track, Sven Peterson, Earle Courter, Paul Haberbush, jimmy Harris and jack Addis brought honors to our already distinguished class. Dave Wilson, Earle Courter, Ralph Richardson, and Bob Douglass showed great promise as actors and starred in "The Monkey's Paw." In the Fall of '45 we returned -- upperclassmen at last able to cast disdainful glances at the "small fry." An original event in the beginning of our junior Class was the election of class oflicers. After an energetic campaign, in which David Barnford was his chief booster, Ed Handville gained the Presidency. His able rival, George Bremser, was elected Vice-President, and Carol Knoderer Secretary-Treasurer. No third term for Pete, but he was Vice-President of the Student Council. In the '43-'44 season we were very well represented on varsity teams. Our contribution to the cheerleading squad was Mary Marfield while Margaret Peck and Mary McBratney did a fine job as clrum majorettes. Musical talent was found in Gladys Purdy, Earle Courter, Marjorie Peltz and Dorothy Boyle. In the literary world Dave Wilson and George Bremser gave the Seniors some stiff competition by serving on the editorial staffs of "Shadows" and the White Hornet, respectively. With a Prom, featuring a nautical motif, we gave the Seniors a royal sencloff. After a long, hard struggle, we're Seniors--coming down the home stretch towards our goal-graduation. This year, members of the class of '45 really walked away with top honors. Sven Peterson really earned his share of glories by being President of the Student Council and being captain of three teams: basketball, soccer, and track. George Bremser was President of our class, editor of the White Hornet and President of the Suburban Conference Council. Bill Bruckmann was class Vice-President and Doris Madsen Secretary-Treasurer. Dave Wilson ofliciated as editor of "Shadows," President of the Dramatic Club, and sports editor of the White Hornet. jack Hardebeck was captain of our football and baseball teams. Not to be outshone by the fellows, some of the girls really boosted morale during the football season. Mary McBratney was a checrleaderg Peggy Peck was a drum majorette, and Gladys Purdy played in the band. On December 15 we gave our last dance-titled simply "The Christmas Dance"- judged by many as the best in years. Highly original decorations followed the Christ- mas theme. in 281 Last Will and Testament We, the class of 1945, of the Henry B. Whitehorne High School, Borough of Verona, County of Essex and State of New Jersey, being of sound mind and of our own free will and accord, do hereby sign, seal and deliver our last will and testament as directed: C15 To the junior Class we give our dearly beloved teachers and their unique ways of teaching, our seats up in the front of the assembly-with the gum remaining-our sunny dispositions and sweet smiles in the face of excessive homework, a pair of legs as cute as Bobby Beaton's, our ability to eat in class and our ten-minute social period before and after each class. Q21 To our lovable faculty we leave: a homeroom that will observe the 8:20 bell for Mrs. Burton: a football team, loaded with "fruits" for Mr. Wermuthg a shiny, brass badge for Miss Ehrmann-symbolic of the crown of corny gagsterg a code class that will take 40 words a minute for Mr. Anderson, a Freshman more intelligent than Appius Claudius, ninety years old and blind, for Mr. Wilking a red and yellow gym suit for Mrs. Van Houten. GJ To that "solid sender," Marv Wickham, we leave a solo spot in the "Mel- odairs" band. Q41 To our highly esteemed and deserving principal, Mr. Sampson, we leave our honor roll marks and exceptional good behavior. We do hereby nominate, constitute, and appoint Marion Kelly to be executor of this, our Last Will and Testament. May she treat us well! In witness whereof, we have hereunto subscribed our name on this first day of june in the year one thousand nine hundred and forty-five. CLASS OF '45 Witnesses .'

'Q 1 g 6 THE JUNIORS The S er geants This important feeling, upperclassmen at last! Come September, and the class of 1946 were found trying their wings as juniors. In the latter part of our Sophomore year the class chose able leaders for their junior year: President, Ann Toblerg Vice-President, jack Timking Secretary, jean Morrisong Treasurer, Arvid Danielson. Juniors were well represented on our famous foot- ball team. Among these we discover the pride and joy of the class, "Bucky" Hatchett, who will Hll the captaincy of next year's team. The other gridders were Richie Carroll, Al Denicola, Bob Cougan, Bud Hodgkiss, Dan Buck, Frank Massa, and Walker Howell. Swinging over to basketball, we again find the valuable player "Bucky" Hatchett, Dick Ferris, Mike Bartolo, Marvin Solomon, and Sam Vitale. Melvin Siris was manager. E501 Helping to cheer the team to victory were cheer- leaders Captain Carol Baldwin and Anne Meyer. Among those who helped the soccer team win the gold trophy were Sam Vitale, Captain-elect for next year, johnny Puelo, Dick Ferris, jack Timkin and Bob Perry. In the literary field was Alta Ann Turner as As- sistant Editor of "Shadows" We showed up on the White .Hornet staff with "Dutch" Kusenberg, News Eclit0r. In the Music Department we boast of Sonny Casta and his "Melodaires." In the band and orches- tra were Danny Buck, Barbara Heuser, Iris Schuham, jack Shelly, Leslie Verheck, Bob Singewald, Richard Wolff, Alta Ann Turner, and Sonny Casta-President of the Band. The balmy breezes of Spring lured our junior fellows out for spring sports. Out on the track one saw "Bucky" Hatchett taking the hurdles in his stride, also kicking up dirt were Bud Hodgkiss, Richie Car- roll, Al Denicola, Bob Cougan, Marvin Solomon, Donnie Knowles, Wilson Milford, Bob Davis, Ar- nold Marks, Morris Moskowitz, Dick Ferris. Hopeful talents on the baseball team were Danny Buck, Al Denicola, johnny Puleo, and Sam Vitale. Keeping up the noble attempts of the tennis team were Bill White and Bob Perry. The juniors held two dances this year instead of the usual one. The Snow Shoe Shuffle Party was presented in january and was a big success. By presenting this dance we achieved our goal to ob- tain more funds for our treasury in order to give a bigger and better Prom. Our ideas and dreams for the Prom became a reality, and we came through with a wonderful Prom for the departing Seniors, thus ending our junior year with a bang. We will return next year as Seniors to uphold a reputation of which we are all proud. 321 THE SOPHGMORES The Corporals OFFICERS President .,........,....... Dave Settle Vice-President Vincent Marriott Secretary-Treasurer Jacklyn Scott The crisp tang of a September breeze, which closely pursued those blissful summer days, reminded us that we, as future citizens of the United States, had an education to build. So we entered our Sophomore year with all the confidence and assurance in the world, for after all, weren't we hardened veterans? It wasn't long before we set to work and enthusiastically plunging into extra- curricular events, came out with some very pleasing results. 3 . li-lr:- 4,- ,j -'fini A 7111 . figs 'ff -'ef . . f , 4"'?'-K-G51-g 4"Fx-if - This year we Sophomores sitting in the bleachers had extra special reasons for yelling like savages. For didn't we have hve full Hedged cheerleaders, Nancy Edwards, Amy Smith, Wiiiiiie Cameron, Carol Ericson, and Ginger Hagemann to cheer with? And weren't we well represented on the teams? We were Ver-y proud of Vinnie Marriott, Dave Settle and jimmy Towart, who saw quite a bit of the pigsking Lee Appleton and Glen Noback seeing action on the soccer team, and Vinnie Marriott, Dave Settle, Mac Hemion and Glen Noback holding their own on the basketball court. The spring sports also look promising for the Sophomores and again we'll be there to cheer them on. However, we are not limited to sports. The early part of October found our dance committee industrially drawing original posters and working on smooth decorations for "The Big Top." This dance with its artistic entrance and noval parade was one of the most successful of the year. In the music department we found many talented Sophomores. Lee Appleton, lfrank Butler, Roger Hermann, Dot Klix, Patsy Dickenson, Dave Knoderer, Jay Trac kman were members of the band or orchestra, and the members of the Girls Glee Club passed the twenty mark. Many of us continued participating in the Dramatic Club's activities. Others joined the Wliitc' Hornet Staff, Helene Smithline becoming Business Manager. On top of our own class proceedings handled by our officers, President, Dave Settle, Vice-President Vincent Marriott, and Secretary-Treasurer, ,lacklyn Scott, we had a hand in the business transactions of the High School Student Council. Executing the duties of Student Council Secretary and Treasurer was Marianne Rowell. Our other representatives were Vincent Marriott, Mac Hemion and Dick La Rue. After such a successful year as Sophomores just wait 'til you see what we do as juniors! U5 2.4, - S QQ 'if xss 'im THE FRESHMEN Buck Privates OFFICERS President .,....

P 5 ,lx ,T . . 1 x. y wp'- C , il On September 8, 1944, the members of the class of '48 entered the halls of the high school with a rather misty idea of classes and books. Soon after this, however, they settled down-the quiet, meek Freshmen they were expected to be. After about two months of solitude, the upperclassmen heard rumors that the Freshmen were going to elect their class officers by ballot in the homerooms. This plan was carried through and the officers were-President, Gordon Browng Vice-President, Roy Wagnerg Secre- tary, Sue Smith, and Treasurer, Pete jelstrom. 341 f - . ln the sports held the Freshmen really showed their spirit. The boys who went out for football were ---jiin Brighton, james Burns, Donald Carroll, llarry Easton, Bob Edwards, Donald Foss, John Gib- son, Bob Hermey, Graham Ingold, George Janson, Carl jensen, Pete jelstrom, Paul Kestner, Ralph North, and Bob Reddington. In the basketball sea- son, Graham lngold, Louis Wierdo, Lloyd Hadaway, Pete jelstrom, Bob Hermey, john Gibson, Carl Jen- sen, and Max Pelka showed promise for a future ehampionship team. Wlieri word was sent out about the new band unilfmrms, it really enthused the following Freshmen who had a wonderful time parading and showing off their outfits - Bob Edwards, Stanley Conner, Howard Bogart, Walter Cheatte, and Harry Easton. Marilyn Holerfield, Mildred Pignatello and Art Wil- liams were very good with their batons. In the orchestra are Elaine Barron, Betty Fransen, Violet Sihuham, Ruth Shaw, Shirley Van Brunt, Nancy Vonder Hyde, and Pat Warner. Around the end of january, the class officers had a meeting and started to plan for the Freshman Danie to be given April 13, 1945. The dance, called the "l"reshman Frolicf' was open only to Freshmen and their friends. The tickets, costing titty cents each, were made by the boys in the shop. Gaines, like "Truth or Consequences" and an Ama- teur llour, were stressed, so the "Frolic" was really a party! The class of '48 has made quite a name for itself in its lireshman year and will undoubtedly continue with this reputation throughout their remaining years at Verona High School. all ..,,,f 5 . , 12121 41.1 if -1 ,J . ,.., ,W , , -- - vw W-fl ,fa ,r HENRY B. wx-mfeg-sosQS1f,, -- HIGH scwooz. - ,. . -1- l,, 1: Lifgg-:MS,-Wy,fW . -z-Y: i wif. ,.

Verona High School is represented in the Suburban Conference Council by George Brem- ser, Acting President. In the fall three mem- bers of our council were cordially welcomed at Glen Ridge where the first meeting of the year was held.

This was due to the present shortage of materials which must be used for war produc- tion. Since all the work was speeded up, every- one had to work fast to have his articles, pictures, and art work finished on time, but as usual the students of Verona High were on their toes and willing to help in all ways so this year we've come through with a big bang. "Shadows" is indeed a transcendent piece of work and Editor Dave Wilson was a prime factor in making it so. Dave had a tremendous job confronting him when he took over the task of publishing the yearbook during a war-time year. He was very fortunate in having a line stalf to assist him. Alta Ann 'l'urner has shown us, by her fine high sclionl record and her great many attainments, that she is a suitable person for such a responsibility as assistant to Dave Wilsoii this year and the honor of Editor next year. Mary Mcliratney, also did an excellent job in the significant position of Business Manager. Workiiig under Dave as Literary Editor, was Mary Marfield, a well-known, hard-working mem- ber of the Senior class. A trying task and one that requires a great deal of understanding is the office of Advertising Edi- tor held this year by Karen Bausum who did an excellent piece of work. Many of you have met up with George Bur- nett around school, directing the photography for "Shadows" and snapping the shutter a number of times himself. He proved to everyone just what an able Photography Editor he has been. Sports Editor George Bremser has been "on the ball" all year and has followed the sports closely and accurately so that in this edition of "Shadows" we have a very clear picture of the Verona High School Sports Program. Gloria Pataky, as Publicity Editor, has created much interest in "Shadows" this year and our hats are off to her for a job so well done. Circulation is an arduous job, but Audrey jacob, as "Shadows" Circulation Editor, has handled it very well indeed and she has kept her staff working diligently. Mary Maffucci had a job that is not so easy and a lot of industry was required of her and her staff. In her position as Typing Editor, she has not been surpassed. Miss Roberta Kautzmann has done a splendid job as faculty adviser for "Shadows" Her aid to the editors was invaluable and she deserves a great deal of appreciation for her continued aid and guidance which made "Shadows" a wonderful success this year. It is due to the "Shadows" editors that every- thing ran so smoothly and of course it is realized that without them there would be nothing, but also there are the people included on the staffs who should be congratulated for the time they have spent helping. Every person on "Shadows" had a job to do at some time and the cooperation of these with the editors, and their ceaseless effort have kept everything rolling smoothly along in order to bring forth the finished "Shadows" of this year. All these students are appreciated to no end because it is through their efforts that "Shad- ows" has turned out to be one of the nicest and best yearbooks that Verona High has ever had. .. . -H1-my ,- ..-w- --la 1-lv-mf...
