cess both socially and financially. A "Silver Tea" held for the Mothers of the class gave evidence of our ability to do things with the elite. The climax of the year was the Iunior Prom, which is the farewell ball to the Seniors. The gymnasium resembled a garden with bright-colored chairs, tables and large umbrellas. Streamers of crepe paper in all the pastel shades were strung from a center revolving mirror reflector which had colored lights shining dimly upon it from various positions. Everyone attending had a wonderful time and we justly felt it was the most outstanding social event of cur three years. Our Iunior year had helped us to build a foundation for future happiness and success and we knew that we would enter upon the duties and privileges of our Senior year with a feeling of confidence and satisfaction. OLD AGE-Senior Year September nineteen hundred and thirty-eight found us returning from our summer vacation as Seniors! How proud and important we felt! We soon settled, however, in the regular routine of school life. As a result of our elec- tions: we chose the ever popular, Charles Truax as presidentp a promising young athlete, Alice Pepper, as vice-president: as our secretary we elected Barbara Newman who is quite proficient in writing minutes: and probably our most promising financier, Robert Lewis, as treasurer. Our advisers for our last year in Manasquan High School were: Miss Beatrice Leitch, Mr. Chauncey Oakley and Mr. Ivan Reese. In the fall of this year duty was put aside, and we turned to pleasure for a few hours. Our Hallowe'en Dance one of the big hits of the season. We had a peppy jazz orchestra and every one enjoyed himself to his fullest capacity. Other social activities were two Senior Plays, A Marionette Show, A Magazine Drive, two Card Parties sponsored by the Senior parents and also the chancing off of a ton of coal. During one particular week towards the latter part of March, all classes witnessed a group of smiling individuals, all in their finest array, demurely walking about the halls and class rooms. S-s-h-the pictures for the Treasure Chest were being taken. During the term we saw our football team in action for the last time as high school students. Our Band decked out in Blue and Gray uniforms made a wonderful impression on the Seniors because some of use may never return to visit Manasquan high and witness their swell formations, parading and playing. Our class played an active part in scholastic activities through all four years in high school. We aided in forming clubs and participating in athletic- and orchestral activities. Our school has one of the finest selection of clubs. and societies, one of the best student orchestras, one original and thriving paper, the "Blue and Gray", and many triumphant teams, all of which our cooperation helped to carry on. ' Our class is the first to use the standardized Commencement Announce- ments passed by the Student Government and also the first to wear the original ring seal. Many members of our class have taken part in the Student Government and Court, the Hall Patrol, Honor Society, and many other honorable organi- zations and clubs. Gatherings never to be forgotten will be Class Night Exercises, The Senior Ball, Baccalaureate Service, and finally, Graduation! These evenings of joy and happiness will remain as beautiful memories. At last, after four years, we are graduating. Mlhen we realize that we are to leave school and dear old acquaintances behind us, that great event in our lives does not seem to be such a happy one as we have expected. For some of us, books and studies are laid aside for new adventures in the business world. For others gradu- ation means a continuation of school in a higher institution of learning. The Class of nineteen hundred and thirty-nine, has made an undeniably brilliant record for itself in the annals of the school. It has supported every project launched during its existence. However, it is not merely as a separate class that it wishes to be remembered, it would rather be recalled as a loyal integral part of that great institution, MANASQUAN HIGH SCHOOL. Fifteen

CLASS HISTORY OF 1938 Written and Delivered by ALICE LARSEN You may not find the events l am about to relate in the pages of Amer- ican Histories. Nevertheless, l defy anyone to prove that they are not as worthy of mention as any of the deeds performed by the heroes whose names are painted in flaming letters in those same national eulogies. Would you have me prove my words? Then stretch your ear and give heed. INFANCY-Freshman Year ln September, the year nineteen hundred and thirty-five, a handsome and smiling group of one hundred and twenty-five, girls and boys descended upon this ancient institution. What an exciting week followed! Classes, meeting new friends, greeting old ones, looking over our teachers and remarking on their looks, and a score of other exciting things. Near the end of our first week, we had a class meeting and elected officers, Iames Wolfersberger was elected president: Adolph Porto, vice-president: Margaret Stokes, secretary, and Wyndham Peck, treasurer. Our colors were to be Scarlet and White. For a motto we selected, Veritas Omnia Vincit, "Truth Conquers All Things", and as a class flower we chose the Gardenia. lt was all too wonderful for words! High school students at last! The social activities of our class were not numerous, but the annual Freshman Dance and Card Party held on May lst, was one of the most popular and successful events of the year. Finally, our Freshman term was at its end and under the careful direction and guidance of Miss Beatrice Leitch, Miss Eleanor Mathiowetz, Miss Dorothy Robinson and Mr. Paul Davis, we felt we had left a high standard for other classes to follow. CHILDHOOD-Sophomore Year ' A very short vacation and we returned as Sophomores, wise and well acquainted with the ways of the school. Three more years to stay in Mana- squan High. With high hopes and good old 'Squan school spirit, we under- went the important task of electing our class officers for the year. For presi- dent we elected Charles Truaxg vice-president, lack McCarthy: secretary, Richard Emmons, and treasurer, lean Hoskins. The social events consisted mainly of Parent-Teachers Meetings and an- nual class dances. In athletics the class held its own and in several cases members distinguished themselves in basketball, baseball, football, track, golf and many other kinds of sports. Others took an interest in art, music, dra- matics and writing. During this year we made marked progress in both curricula and extra-curricula activities, and under the supervision of Miss Beatrice Leitch, Miss Dorothy Robinson, Miss Eleanor Mathiowetz and Mr. Paul Davis we knew we had passed another milestone and were looking forward with great anticipation to our lunior Year. YOUTH-lunior Year After the summer vacation, we returned as Iuniors-and as such main- tained a great degree of dignity. We entered into activities with even more vim and vigor than we had displayed in preceding year. In the elections we again put forth evidence of good judgment in electing as president, Iack McCarthy5 vice-president, David Brown: secretary, Iessie LaVanceg and treas- urer, Robert Lewis. Our advisers were: Miss Beatrice Leitch, Miss Naomi Chandler, Miss Eleanor Mathiowetz, and Mr. Chauncey Oakley. The social functions commenced with a Card Party sponsored by the Iunior parents. This success was followed by a Christmas Dance. Undoubtedly the most important event of the term was the ordering of our school rings. The time between the ordering and the arrival seemed like years to us. About noon one day news leaked out that the rings had arrived. Was Miss Leitch's room a favorite spot that day? In the afternoon close to eighty proud Iuniors left the building with the most beautiful rings Squan ever had. Good old Santa must have known the expectation that we held in our hearts for our rings came in time for Christmas. In the early spring, our class gave its first evidence of dramatic ability and presented the Iunior Play entitled, "The Whoofenpoofn. This was a suc- Fourteen

w 'TEV crass meat CLASS WILL by Editors Delivered by Iohn Legg We, the Class of 1939, in full possession of a crammed mind, and a well trained memory, and being about to pass out of this sphere of learning, do make, publish, and declare this to be our last Will and Testament, here-by revoking all other and former Wills by us at any time made: To the entire school We leave the example we have set as worthy scholars and blameless students. Our record has been spotless and in all the prnnals of our career we have done no deed, as a class, that we need blush Of. To the community at large we bequeath the influence we have been for the honorable and better things of life: the interest in music, in local dramatics, in charitable drives-all these have contributed to the development of the cul- tural spirit and in all we have taken part and done our share. To the Iunior Class we bestow our richest treasures. Almost too numerous to mention are these same treasures and when the lower classmen hear the recital of rare legacies which fall to their possession, we scarcely expect them to bear up under the shock. To the Iuniors, we do bequeath the honor of oc- cupying the front seats in the Auditorium. fAlas! what regrets the dear Faculty will have when they miss "our bright and shining faces."l Our Senior dignity, our manners, our favor with the teachers, our splendid grades and our tri- umphant exit as the most popular class this school has ever seen--these are the rare treasures that we hand down to the coming Senior Class. But it would not be fair if we withheld other valuables and with great largeness of heart we pass them along, too. Our capacity for fun, our ability to laugh off homework, our goodtimes, our friendships, and our loyalty we do hereby bequeath to the Iuniors, and may they count them among the richest of the legacies they have received. To the present Sophomore Class, we do bequeath the joys of being young and carefree. Enjoy yourselves while you may, for soon enough you will be- come Seniors, and "Seniority" usually means-work! To the present Freshman Class, we do bequeath the fun which our class had during its four high school years. There was never a dull moment and may your four years be as full as ours were. '- To the incoming Freshman Class, we leave the hint that hair-ribbons and brief cases are out of date. To Mr. Crosley, Dr. Woolson and our Senior Advisors, we leave our deep- est appreciation and esteem. Through their guidance we have managed to become Seniors and we feel that the memories of our many activities, difficul- ties, and 'accomplishments should be left to those who helped our class ob- tain the place which it has secured in the hearts of our schoolmates and ac- quaintances. We also leave our extreme gratitude and thanks to all our teach- ers who have aided us during our high school career. And now we come to the following personal bestowals which have been awarded to individuals with complete consideration to the fitness of the reci- pient: To Harry Brevoort and Katherine Pierce, we bequeath Dave Brown's and Elsie Vanderhoef's athletic ability, not that they need it, but then, it may be a help. To George Rogers and Doris Havens we leave Kenneth Chamberlain's and Priscilla Roetzal's talent before the footlights. To lean Irwin and Arthur Kaupe, Alice Larsen and lack McCarthy leave their likeable personalities. King Sargeant's, Ioe Height's and Walter Clayton's gift to Ioe Scudder is their latest book entitled, "How To Be a Careful Driver ln One Easy Lesson." Sixteen
