Our district is the only one which
stages an annual swimming meet. P. S.
No. 9 again won the point trophy,
scoring the unusually large total of
thirty-two points, which was eighteen
more than our nearest competitor.
In the 75lb. class "Tiny,' Majilton
took first place. He was closely fol-
lowed by "Toddy" Bick. VV. Pierce
placed 4th in this event. Al Maguire
won the 85lb. event. Bill Peavy placed
second in the same. Charles Engle
and Francis Moe took first place and
second respectively in the 115lb. class.
Albert Isakson took first in the un-
limited event. The relay closed a most
splendid victory by finishing second
in the specialty. "Big" Majilton,
Fred Topper, John Hanretty and
Murray Bloch were its members.
THE P. S. A. L. CHAMPS
Our next meet was the P. S. A. L.
Champs which were held at the C. C.
N. Y. natorium.
By scoring in four of the seven
events we won the point trophy and
the championship of the city of New
York. Our only champions were the
unlimited relay consisting of John
Hanretty, Fred Topper, Roland lluda-
verdi and Murray Black. This sterlin,Q,'
quartet smashed the existing record
by twelve seconds, a mark which will
endure for a. long time to come. Our
other point scorers Were: Teddy La-
zarus who finished fourth in the 90-lb
class, Albert Maguire and Bill Peavy
who finished third and fourth respec-
85-lb. class, and Albert
took third in the un-
tively in the
schedule. In the very first game of
our baseball team was
an unusually difficult
the season we encountered P. S. No.
3, the school that we nosed out last
year by a score of 2 to 1 for the dis-
trict championship. Our first contest
ended in a scoreless tie. "Red"
Schiavonne pitched a splendid game.
After a strenuous week of practice

intendent Emmanuel F. Van Dam.
In one respect we have room for
improvement. That is in our record
for attendance. Vtle have had a great
many children absent in our lower
grades because of measles and other
children's diseases. This, of course,
could not be helped. It is of absences
due to avoidable causes that we wish
to speak. NVe are concerned not so
much with making a record as we are
with helping our children progress
normally from grade to grade. One
of the most serious causes of retarda-
tion in our schools is poor attendance.
A pupil who is absent misses the day 's
instruction, and comes to school the
following day unprepared for he does
not know what lessons have been as-
signed. He thus loses two days in-
stead of one. We have, of course, as
will be found in all schools, some chil-
dren who prefer to stay away from
school. But, we also have parents
who unwittingly encourage their off-
spring in this tendency. NVe do not
Want children who are sick, to come
to school, but very often an imaginary
ache or pain will disappear if the par-
ent insist that the child attend school.
Prolonging a week-end in the country
to include the following Monday, or
taking children out of school for a
week at a time to accompany the
mother on a visit out of town, does
not give the child the proper attitude
toward school work. It often results
in non-promotion and the dreadful
habit of failure.
The Prospect Hill Parents' Associa-
tion is organized to foster a program
for parental education and to estab-
lish a co-operative spirit between the
home and the school. Vile meet on
the second Tuesday evening of each
month from October through June.
Our meetings are both interesting and
instructive. NVe have had some out-
standing speakers with us during this
All parents are urged to join us in
the fine work we are doing.

Dr. A. J. Korey,
Principal, The Prospect Hill,
Brooklyn, N. Y.
My Dear Dr. Korey:
A short while ago we sent you a
list of those pupils whom you had
sent to us from your school. The list
showed the results of their efforts dur-
ing their first term with us, and very
probably proved interesting to you.
Since that time we have made
further statistical studies based upon
the achievements made by the pupils
of the various schools. NVe are pleased
to inform you that your school stands
among the leaders in results achieved,
and that we have appreciated the op-
portunity of carrying forward the
education of these boys.
Vile shall be very glad to welcome
to Boys High School's entering class
in June additional boys of the type
which has made this fine record. Should
you find it convenient to do so, please
call upon us that we may make you
acquainted at first hand with the work
we are doing.
