While strolling on the boardwalk we meet a fine-looking gentleman who approaches us with the idea of taking a trip to Bermuda. After a few minutes of conversation, we are surprised to learn that the persuasive man is none other than our old class president, Charles Truax. After purchasing tickets and placing our car aboard the steamship, we find that the captain of this liner is Iames Bennett. lim looks very dignified in his uniform. We are cer- tainly pleased to learn that Clarence Fishler is the ship's purser. Clarence has a hard job taking care of all foreign exchanges but he says he doesn't mind the work because he deals with such notables as Iohn P. Holmes. one of New York's leading brokers. ln charge of Athletics, aboard the luxurious liner are Raymond Iohnson. one of the few who were appointed to the All- American Football Team and Iean Hoskins, the new olympic swimming champion. Head waiter aboard the "Monarch of Bermuda" is Ike Richardson. After a delightful trip, we finally arrive at our destination. Here we chance to hire as guide, Harold Showers. who points out to us an exclusive girls' school which is operated by our original master mind, Dorothy Disbrow. Dorothy says she is having a wonderful time managing and directing the activities. ln the midst of the business section, Harold points out to us Doctor Ioe Height's office, where Nancy Mehler is employed as nurse and Margaret Iustice as secretary. That evening, we are invited to attend a dinner and dance at the British Embassy. To our amazement, we find the Attorney Gen- eral's wife to be our gracious lady, Reba Holman. Reba is doing splendid work entertaining her guests with specialty dances by King Sargent. As we look to the right we find two good-looking men who are attired in full dress uniforms. We are happy to learn that one of them is Iohn Horne, commander- in-chief of the Bermuda Police Force, while the other is the noted statesman and diplomat Paul Zelek. My, My, there are so many celebrated persons here this evening that we don't know where to focus our attention next. As it is late it is necessary for us to leave our charming hostess so that we shall be prepared for our last day in Bermuda. When we arrive at the hotel, tired and weary after an eventful day, the clerk, Robert Carr, informs us that there is a message from the garage man, Harry Trotter, saying that our car, which we had left there the day before, was ready for use. Early the next morning, We started visiting the interesting sights on the outskirts of the city. Soon we find a huge white building with the name of Porto Brothers Golf Club Manu- facturing Company, in large letters. As that name appears to be very famil- iar, we stop and go inside. Here we find several familiar faces. Acting as secretaries, are Doris Pierce, Helen Combs, Ellen Morton. and Ellen Minier. The firm's business manager is Willard Skellinger. Leaving our class mates, we return to the boat where we set sail for Norfolk, Va. Arriving in the city, we are greeted by photographers, Edward Walzer and Paul Nutt. Winnie Mills and Lucille Anderson, star reporters for the Vir- ginia Daily, appear on the scene and are eager to write a story concerning the whereabouts of our senior class. Ianet Markle, who has replaced Dorothy Thompson as the world's most outstanding woman columnist, is also on hand to greet us. While riding through the business section of Norfolk enroute to Baltimore, we encounter the former Dot Williams and Ruth Iohnson who are also visitors. After a few minutes of conversation we learn that Willard Em- bley has just been appointed Secretary of Agriculture. They tell us that Elsie Vanderhoef and Betty Shaak are directors of a new magazine entitled "Cheering and Why." Aiding them in this undertaking are Peggy Gifford as publicity manager, Olga Krott as business manager, and Haniet Dey as advertising manager. Soon we depart for Baltimore. Here to our amazement, we find Louis Whelan, is operating an ultra-modern television shop. As we approach the store we hear a newsflash coming in saying that Edward Gilford, forest ranger, has just saved the lives of two social workers, Mary Flippen and Nellie Watson, while they were touring through the Earl Heulitt forest reser- iilaticgn. Dr. Ioseph Lemansky, a noted chiropodist was the the first to discover t e ire. Having accounted for every one of our classmates we drive back to New York, tired but happy, to be able to report that the class which graduated from Manasquan High School in 1939, has achieved financial and personal success beyond all our hopes.

cmss me GRADUATION ADDRESS OF WELCOME Written and Delivered by IOHN McCARTHY Tonight, as we meet for the last time in the hall of our Alma Mater, we are the closest together that we shall ever be as the class of '39. Tomorrow comes the parting of the ways and we shall encounter the experience which you, our guests, have had when we go forth into the busy world to take our places and assume our responsibilities. Ordinarily we would meet this occa- sion with happiness and eager curiosity, but tonight we struggle against the bonds of friendship, love, and devotion which have grown during these four years between us, the class of '39, and our faculty and fellow students. We are detained by these forces and we linger to spend this last happy hour together. We extend a warm and cordial welcome to you, our guests and friends, and invite you to partake of our happiness and sorrow. It is fitting and proper as we leave our Alma Mater, that we consider, and appreciate the great benefits and help which she has given us. America as the greatest democratic nation of the world regards with pride one of her greatest ideals, that of individuality. Americans are looked upon as individ- uals each one in himself a potential leader. People in foreign lands are looked upon as a mass of humans subject to dictatorial rule, not rulers of their own minds. Each American has great qualities within him which may be beneficial to himself and to his country. We encourage the development of these quali- ties by giving every one free education in various institutions which include scores of universities, night-schools, public high schools and elementary schools. Our school has bestowed this privilege to the greatest extent in offer- ing every possible opportunity to its students. In times such as these, when several of the foreign countries are being governed by dictators, socialists, communists and other radical groups, our great world democracies are in danger of attack. Many of us believe that in order to protect and preserve our democracy we must be familiar with the way that it functions and we must be made to see its many advantages and benefits. This can only be done through our schools and homes. Our school has done more than its share to teach the principles of self-government. We have the best student government organization of any school in our section. It is modeled closely after our National Government so that our students may become better acquainted with the functions and benefits of our governmental System. Education lies not only in the text-book and class-room but also in the warm human contacts and friendships among our students, in recreational activities and social events, and in a competitive athletic program. Again our school offers these advantages in every possible way. Thus these two things, work and play, apparently so different are really working toward the same goal mainly to develop a well-rounded citizen who will be an inspira- tion and a help to his neighbors. Before you tonight you see a group of young men and women reluctant at parting but eager to assume duties as good citizens in our democracy. Again We, the class of 1939, welcome you and trust that you see for us a bright future and the continuance of a progressing world. Twenty-one
