The completion of the College High building in November, 1929, 
marked the beginning of our school history. At that time there were only^ 
the seventh, eight , ninth, and tenth grades, the last being the present 
Senior class. Heretofore, classes had been carried on in the basement rooms 
of the College, but in November, the school was moved into its new 
building. Here we were faced with a new problem. We had no traditions, 
and less than a hundred students to establish fitting standards. Although 
there were a school constitution and a student Council, neither one had 
become definitely a part of the school government. 

The year 1930 was to be an important one in the founding of the 
school organization. The Science, Dramatic, and Glee clubs were started 
by the students. A school orchestra and a small band were formed. In 
April of 1930, the operetta "Hansel and Gretel" was given very success- 
fully by the combined efforts of the Glee Club and the English depart- 
ment. Thus was established a worthy dramatic and musical standard for 
the College High School. 

In the next year, 1931, athletics took the major role in school activi- 
ties with the founding of the Athletic Association. Athletic equipment, 
baseball and basketball uniforms were purchased with the membership 
fees of this Association. School songs and cheers were composed, and the 
school colors, orange and black, were chosen. 

Several new clubs were organized in this year, namely the French 
and Art clubs. Both of these have increased greatly. In February, Booth 
Tarkington's play "Seventeen" was given by the class of '32 in the Mt. 
Hebron School auditorium. The play was extremely successful, a success 
largely due to the hard work of coaches, actors, and committees. The 
performance was presented primarily to earn money for the first year 
book. A prize of an orange and black banner bearing the numerals of the 
winners was presented to the class of ^36 for having sold the most 

The year 1932 has seen the greatest advancement in the College 
High School. The two outstanding features were the reorganizing of the 
Student Council and the establishing of the school paper, the CriePv. 

The Student Council, which previously had not been able to find its real 
place in the school life, started on a career ^ activity. A new constitution 
was drawn up, for the old one was found to je, insufficient. The College 
High School Standards, which combines all the rules and standards 
established in the school from its beginning, was edited. Student tutoring, 
an interesting and highly successful project, was spo^— -^ h^r the Council. 
The adoption of a school flag, suggested by the v lub of the 

ninth grade, and the letter award for athletic prowess ,vert matters 
under its charge. 

The establishment of the CRIER was a big stride forward in the High 
School organization. The paper has helped to make the school more 
acquainted with its own activities, and has stimulated interests in projects 
which would have otherwise passed unnoticed. 

Now the school is filled to its capacity of one hundred and fifty 
students in the combined Junior and Senior Schools. These students come 
from many different towns in the vicinity, but the school has made them 
into a cooperating student body which is working for the school's further 
improvement, and is endeavoring to build up a worthy tradition for sub- 
sequent classes to follow.

Isabel was the president of cur student council for the first half 
of the senior year, and she was the editor of the year book, both hard 
jobs as the school had no precedents to work on. Isabel is a leader, 
and what is more, a leader who can make other people work. Because 
of all these activities and her studies, school must take a good deal of 
Isabel's time, nevertheless she always finds time to ride. She is ob- 
viously and wholly crazy about horses. We are all familiar with the 
Anderson Ford station wagon, and the abandon with which Isabel drives 
it. Slim, with dancing eyes and vivacious character, one of the most 
delightful things about Isabel is that one never knows exactly what she 
is going to do or say next.

"Dynamite," as Dr. Freeman used to call him, well deserves the 
name in basketball, but otherwise Everett's speed has never been im- 
pressive. Li class every word he speaks seems to be a distinct effort; 
he should worry, he. gets on the honor roll with remarkable regularity. 
Despite his deliberateness, Everett is very interested and very good in 
athletics. He is one o£ the high lights of the basketball team, and 
among the first out for any other sport. Though he is very modest 
about it, Everett is said to be a super-scientist, anything technical intrigues 
him. Someone found out recently, that though he saunters leisurely 
up to school in the morning, he dees some tearing to catch his train.

Dick, class hero, Don Juan, and what-not, has been one of the 
mainstays of College High athletics. Perhaps the fact that he has 
also numerous tennis and swimming cups is not so well known. Never- 
theless, everyone knows of the great value he has been to the basketball 
team. Dick's good nature is as familiar to the school as his golden 
hair, and both serve as well to make him thoroughly popular. For a 
long time he has been quite interested in his saxophone, and though the 
orchestra has repeatedly urged him to join its ranks, he is rather shy 
about his musical abilities. As the father, Mr. Baxter, in "Seventeen," 
Dick gave a very convincing, and often times a very amusing perform-

Marge is one of those rather quiet people who survey each new- 
comer before they decide to call him friend. But once she accepts you, she 
will never reject you. She is one of those people whom the world seeks 
out in every "nook and cranny" and then holds in high esteem. Mac 
always seems to be occupied in thought, if not in conversation. While 
the rest of us are conjugating subjunctives and trying to understand col- 
loidal chemistry, she is off somewhere, in theory if net reality, having a 
"peach of a time." Mac has a delightful soprano voice and ably assists 
the Glee Club in its musical efforts.

Whenever literature is the subject of discussion, most of the class 
backs discreetly out of the picture and leaves the question to Kate. She 
has read unlimited quantities of all the things that well-read people 
should read, and a lot more besides. In English the class gapes in 
ignorant innocence when Katie argues psychological issues with Mr. Bohn. 
She is also very much interested in dramatics. One needs only to 
recall her excellent work as Guinevere in our Sophomore production 
of "Idylls of the King" in order to appreciate her abilities. Kate is, 
moreover, a capable manager, as her work on "Seventeen" and her 
coaching of several English projects prove.

Jane is the little girl with the big Buick eight which she drives 
down from Caldwell every morning. Quiet and self-contained, when 
Jane does speak, she always commands attention. In spite of a natural 
reticence, she is so self-possessed that it is impossible to faze her. A repu- 
tation for athletic prowess has sprung up about Jane as a result of her 
active playing on the Senior basketball team. Always generous, Jane loans 
freely of the five dollar bill ever present in her wallet. Knowing what 
she wants and when she wants it, Jane claims that she will never marry 
unless the lucky groom earns at least $ 1 1 5 per week.

The shining light of the class, its most popular and conscientious 
member, is Rudder. He is always on the honor roll and at least 
two important committees. His ability, willingness, and genial dis- 
position are forever getting him into anything worth while. When 
Rudder is in charge, one always has the comfortable feeling that the 
job will be well ,finished and on time. As class president, student 
council president, and news editor of the "Crier," Rudder has worked 
hard and brought about quick and excellent results. His perfect per- 
sonification of Willy in "Seventeen" was the high spot of the per- 
formance not soon to be forgotten by the school. Many long classes 
have been considerably cheered up by Rudder's sense of humor, and 
much gaiety has been evoked by his amusing manner.

Ann is the class's most all-around member. Whether it be sports, a 
dance, or activities of any sort, she is sure to be there, ready and willing 
to undertake any job. She is one of those persons who can play a good 
rough game of basketball and finish up looking perfectly neat and com- 
posed. It is Ann who was responsible for the bottomless punch bowl at 
the Senior High dance, and Ann also contributed a large share of the 
excellent spirit which made the dance such a success. Outside of school 
she has many interests such as music, books, and dances, interests which 
go far to prove her versatility and wide-spread capabilities. 


Class Treasurer *31 
Science Club, '31, '32 


Have you ever noticed anyone around school in a particularly nice 
green sweater? Someone who reminds us of the glories of Illinois, and 
who is crazy about photography? Charles, or "Chassis" as he is more 
often called, isn't exactly what one would call a "ladies' man," but we 
understand that he corresponds with a certain young lady who dwells 
out in the Middle West. Photography isn't the only field in which 
Charles is proficient j in warmer weather the tennis courts are often 
witness to his eflforts. He spends a great deal of time in the science 
room in pursuit of scientific knowledge of all sorts. This fact is doubt- 
less preliminary to his future career, he wants to be a science teacher, 
and we've no doubt that he will make an excellent one.

Grace has been in the College High for only a very few months, 
and because of her quiet and unaflFected manner, we don't know much 
about her. She was one of the too few people in the class who seemed 
to know enough about "Burke's Conciliation Speech" to merit an "A" on 
the final testj to the class, that means something. Grace, from her 
first day in school here, came out faithfully for basketball. She's a good 
player, and appeared at the crucial moment for the seniors. It is not 
generally known what Grace's chemistry marks are, but she seems al- 
ways to be studying the subject in the library, usually with one eye o-n 
her book, and one eye on Gertrude.

We all know that stocky, light-haired, blue-eyed fellow who shuffles 
around school. He is a splendid student. In fact for a long time we all 
wondered what he did besides study. It came out in the end that among 
other things he was interested in electricity. Yet electricity and studying 
do not keep Jeff occupied all of the time. He steals a few minutes now 
and then to have some fun. Jeff has evidently felt that the school needed 
adornment and set about to rectify the lack of it. We have all seen the 
displays which he has placed in the show cases from time to time. In- 
deed, Jeff has always been thoughtful about doing those little things 
which everyone so appreciates.

Good-natured Gerda always does her bit for everyone despite the 
large amount of "kidding" she takes from the class. Gerda early showed 
signs of possessing an unusual character, having at one time been the col- 
lege psychology department's pet study. However, probably because the 
professors had learned only that which Gerda wished to reveal, she was 
soon sent on her way, told that her "I.Q." was too high to warrant 
further study of her character. One often hears Gerda trilling a little 
song to herself, or wailing out in French class "I'm sorry. Mademoiselle." 
Life, to Gerda, with a German classic in front of her, a stubborn silence 
over her, and a luscious dessert at her side, is all one bowl of cherries.

Ingeborg is our most perfect example of strong character and a pleas- 
ing personality. As a secretary she is without an equal. We are well 
aware of the promptness and detail of her minutes (though few of us 
can read her writing), Inga is constantly on the honor roll, faithfully and 
enthusiastically present at sports, and a tireless worker on every committee 
or club with which she is connected. Her energetic and capable manage- 
ment of the invitation committee of the Senior High dance and of the 
French Club, was not only inspiring but also largely responsible for the 
success of both enterprises. We will always remember her weakness for 
debates and the tenacity with which she defends her point.

Gertrude's sprightly, pleasant, and helpful disposition has been a 
tremendous help to the seniors. In any project she is always so willing to 
help, and always does things so well. In taking charge of the class rings 
and pins, Gert was given a big responsibility. The efficiency with which 
she took hold of and accomplished the job can hardly be questioned. As 
president of Craftangle, Gertrude has been busy and interested, and the 
club has thrived. She, herself, is very fond of art and drawing, and has 
produced some very commendable work. As the chairman of the Senior 
Dance entertainment committee, Gert worked diligently and her capabili- 
ties made a very favorable impression.

Someone is giggling. Now who can that be? Yes, it sounds like the 
?vlargrett giggle. It is so infectious that without knowing the joke at all 
one starts laughing in sympathy. It enlivens even the deadest classes. Yet 
Ruth isn't always laughing, she can really be serious. The way she has 
managed the photography end of the Year Book has proved that. It was 
a hard task and she did it well. She is always willing to work, yet never 
takes anything so seriously that she can't find something to laugh about.

If there is anyone in this school slower than Everett Ball, it's 
Joe Rogers. We've never known him to make a deliberately speedy 
gesture. Even his speech, that slow. Southern drawl, is very character- 
istic. Here is something, though, which very likely is not known to 
everyone. Jce does like to dance to fast music, the faster the better. 
He's a good dancer, too. Joe has a decided talent for drawing 5 every- 
one was tremendously taken by his posters and programs for "Seven- 
teen." The Seniors will always remember Joe, shambling along under 
his grey felt hat with the cut off brim and the sticker on the side. 
Also they will recall with chuckles the tales he tells in library.

Libby comes to us every morning from the wilderness known as the 
"Caldwell Styx." As little Lola Pratt in the Junior play, "Seventeen," 
she showed the benefit of much experience in the unaffected manner in 
which she portrayed the petite coquette. We are not surprised at her 
popularity, for, as Mile. Poreau says, "Libby's eyes are always sparkling." 
Always dependable, Libby has been showered with positions of respon- 
sibility during her three years at College High. She has been class secre- 
tary, feature editor of the CRIER, assistant editor of the Year Book, and 
three times Council vice-president. This fall Libby plans to attend Wil- 
liam Smith College, where we expect another brace of male hearts to be

To hear Tommy singing lustily in the locker room, or dashing 
madly off to the dog-wagon for lunch, one would never dream that her 
biggest interest in life is babies. Could it be that the total absence of 
baby pictures from the library magazines is due to Tommy: Because 
of her height, she is a valuable asset to the basl^etball team, anti the team 
always has a pleasantly secure feeling when she comes in as jump. 
Tommy's sense of humor and her ready tongue are the causes of many 
lively outbursts in and out of class, and her friendliness and genial ways 
have won her many friends.

Randolph, the coin and stamp enthusiast, finds a medium of ex- 
pressing his rare sense of humor in the columns of the CRIER. As 
its managing editor he has seen the first issue of the paper come out 
with flying colors, and in the capacity of editor, has held the CRIER 
to the highest of journalistic standards. Randolph, the honor student, 
would not recognize a "B" on a report card if he saw one, having for 
the past year and a half received perfect grades in his five subjects. 
In spite of his general proficiency, Randolph finds economics, (that study 
of money with its pertinent relation to life), the most engrossing of his 
studies. Indeed this is logical, since it is rumored that he hopes to 
become a bear in Wall Street after his graduation from Columbia. 



Wo, the senior class o± the College High School, being of a sound 
and disposing mind and memory do hereby make, publish, and declare 
this to be our last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills 
by us made. 

We hereby devise and bequeath:

seniors did. 

The chug-chug of Charles Finley's motor boat for the benefit of

The lead soldiers made by Rudyard Eldridge and Randolph Zander 
which were not melted and would not sell, to Mr. Warriner. 

Dick Colman's beauty to be distributed among all the males of 
the eleventh grade. 

All the electrical improvements brought about by Stuart Jefferson 
to the school. 

The basketball team, led by Everett Ball, to the captain of the 
coming year with every hope for a few more victories than were gained

Grace Hatch's knowledge of Lincoln to all those who have not 
been so fortunate as to hear Professor Hatch tell of him. 

That slow, southern drawl of Joe Rogers to Lillian Stiff in hopes 
of striking a happy medium. 

Lois Tompkin's monopoly on the baby pictures in the library mag- 
azines to Louis Tompkins so that he can take them home to her in 
the future. 

That cheery red jacket of Ruth Margrett's to her sister Connie,

In the first two years of its existence, the Student Council was a 
doubtful child. It seemed to lean toward sleeping ( as most young 
children do) and was always falling down and bumping its knees. How- 
ever, this year under the capable management of Isabel x^nderson, it 
was picked up, dusted ofF, and set firmly on its feet. In the second 
term, Rudyard Eldridge has taught it to walk and to run a little bit. 

One of its most notable enterprises is the student tutoring in charge 
of Elizabeth Rusling. Students with high scholastic standing help 
those who are less fortunate than they in their comprehension of certain 

The Council appoints home room monitors whose duty it is to see 
that the class rooms are left in proper order. The two monitors for 
each grade, one student council member, and one appointed by the 
Council from the class at large, hold office for one marking period. The 
Council also successfully backed the Junior and the Senior school parties. 

In March, the Council inaugurated a new idea, that of having 
authorities from the student body sit in on discussions concerning their 
particular activities. 

One of the most important tasks was to draw up a constitution for 
the school as the old one proved inadequate. The council also prepared 
a code of ethics: The College High Standards. This is to familiarize 
the new pupils with the school ideals and standards of conduct. 

In collaboration with the Weusnco Club the Council chose designs 
for a school flag which were voted upon by the student body.

BOYS' ATHLETICS, 1931-1932 

This is the second year that the College High basketball team has 
had the opportunity to play a fairly large and representative schedule. 
Last year the Orange and Black quintet played, for the most part, the 
second teams and reserves of the high schools throughout the northern 
part of New Jersey. The team accounted itself most satisfactorily, win- 
ning a large percentage of its games. In '32, on the basis of the 
strength of last year's squad, games were scheduled almost entirely with 
the varsity teams of the high schools in this vicinity. Only two of last 
year's regulars returned. Nevertheless, Coach Hohn managed to create 
a fairly creditable team from the green material at his command. 

The season opened on Friday, December 1 1 , at Tenafly. The team 
was inexperienced, and unable to cope with the veterans of Tenafly . The 
final score of the game was 44-12. Three days later the team travelled to 
Verona, and, although showing great improvement, was subdued by a 
score of 20-8. On January 11, the faculty was defeated 35-29. In the 
next game, Belleville defeated the Orange and Black 28-18, in a pre- 
liminary game in the college gym. The team fared better on January 1 5, 
at Glen Ridge. The game was hotly contested, and was finally won by 
ttie Glen Ridge team in an extra period, 23-21. Our quintet met the 
junior varsity of the college on the 20th of January, and Montclair 
Academy on the next day. The game against the Montclair Academy 
resulted in a defeat, largely due to the small size of their gym. College 
High was victorious over the college junior varsity by a score of 36-28. 
Meeting the Montclair High School reserves on January 27, the Orange 
and Black boys were defeated by a lucky shot dropping through the 
basket after the finishing gun. At Caldwell, Coach Hohn's boys were sub- 
dued by a more experienced squad, 29-17. Tenafly, traveling to Mont- 
clair, again scored to the tune of 35-18. Caldwell was victorious, and 
Kingsley took the measure of the Orange and Black boys at 28-19. Tea- 
neck invaded the Montclair stronghold and again carried oif the honors. 
The game, however, was fast and close, anci a marked improvement was 
in the attack of the College High quintet. In the final game of the 


season, on February 14, the team finally found itself, and swept to a 
35-18 victory against Brookdale. In this game the teamwork which had 
been missing all season, finally clicked, and the result was entirely satis- 

Prospects for next year are bright. The squad loses only two men by 
graduation. Ball and Colman. Although these two were regulars, their 
shoes will be competently filled by Jenkins and Bruning, two very prom- 
ising reserves. The probable line-up of the varsity next year will be 
Costello and Marquardt, guards j Stotz and Jenkins, forwards j Bruning, 
center. These boys have all gained valuable experience this year, and we 
hope they will make good use of it in the next year's campaign. 



Probably the most encouraging sign on the sports horizon of the 
College High was the intense interest shown by the boys of our Junior 
High. iVcting under their own initiative they formed a basketball 
squad, arranged their practice to fit the schedule of the varsity, and 
built up a schedule of their own. This activity cannot be praised too 
highly. It is an expression of boys themselves, their initiative, and 
their leadership in carrying out their own athletics, which bids well for 
future College High teams. 

In the first game of their schedule, the team, made up of ninth 
grade boys, played the Verona ninth graders at Verona. Our boys 
played a great game considering their lack of experience, but went down 
to defeat by the score of 21-15. Not satisfied with their showing in 
this game, the boys went to work to improve their playing. After two 
weeks of hard practice they again challenged the Verona boys, and this 
time the tables were turned, coming up from behind in the last 40 
seconds, they won the game by the close score of 16-15. 

Meeting Mt. Hebron, a school of some seven hundred students, 
the College High quintet put up a good, fast game, but finally succumbed 
21-23. The game was "nip and tuck" all the way, with some excellent 
shooting by Ross Faulkner, The experience of the Mt. Hebron five, 
however, was too much for our boys. 

Among the seventh graders, basketball has also been a great fav- 
orite, and at almost any hour one could see them practicing diligently. 
Captain Louis Tompkins was able to schedule only one game for his 
team. Mt. Hebron took them into camp in a game played in the 
College High gym. 

These boys are gaining more than a good time. They are getting 
a background of experience, which is probably the most valuable factor 
in basketball. For their sportsmanship, perseverance, and initiative, we 
say: "Here's to you!"

The 1931 girls' hockey season consisted entirely of practice games 
played after school with the College. These games were very brisk and 
exciting, for it was not easy for the high school girls to score against the 
college team. The two sides were, however, very evenly matched, and 
everyone enjoyed those fast games played in the late fall. Miss Duke, 
referee and instructor, coached both teams in order to make the playing 
speedier and more interesting. Toward the end of the season there was a 
marked improvement in both inciividual and team play.

The series of inter-class games wen by the senior team, which 
marked the climax cf the girls' basketball season, proved the good 
effects of afternoon practicing. The gym was reserved every Wednes- 
day for the girls interested in playing basketball. A college student 
was appointed to referee and coach on those afternoons. In the latter 
part of the season, inter-class games were organized. 

The first of these, between the tenth and twelfth grades, was the 
best-played game of the series. The sophomores were unable to over- 
come the lead gained by the seniors in the first quarter. 

The game between the tenth and eleventh grades resulted in a 
decisive victory for the sophomores. The juniors bore their defeat 
gallantly. The final contest, between the juniors and the seniors, 
resulted in another senior victory. With the termination of this game, 
the 1932 girls' basketball season closed. 



Besides the major sports of hockey and basketball, the girls have 
been spending their gym periods in practicing archery, volley ball, base- 
ball, and tennis. 

The archery, which was taken up last fall, and practiced until the 
weather interfered, was much enjoyed by the girls, although no great 
degree of accuracy was attained by any one. Many points, however, such 
as the correct position of the hands, arms, and bow, were thoroughly 

In the winter, between the times given up to basketball, volley ball 
became the main activity, and teams were organized for the class periods. 
Last year a volley-ball team was organized to play the Caldwell High 
School, the game resulting in a victory for the College High girls. 

Baseball in the spring, and tennis in summer, were gladly taken up, 
especially the latter, for, with the completion of the new tennis courts, 
more people were interested in improving and learning the game, a thing 
they were unable to do formerly because of the scarcity of tennis courts. 
Baseball, on the other hand, was a very minor activity. The infrequency 
of gym periods, and the shortness of the ones the girls did have, tended 
to discourage interest in the sport, for, unlike tennis, two cannot play at 
it during lunch hour, or after school. 

Thus, with all the minor activities and the two major ones, the girls 
had a full year of sports in 1931-32, although they were unable to special- 
ize in any one sport or organize varsity teams for inter-scholastic games, 
as in boys' athletics.

To be a first graduating class is certainly a responsibility, and the 
Year Book staff has realized this more, perhaps, than anyone else. We 
wanted our first annual to be a success, and we wanted it to set a worth- 
while precedent for the other classes to follow. 

Although our general impressions of year books were formed, they 
were very vague j consequently we have tried to work out a year book 
characteristic of our school and not characteristic of other year books. The 
members of the staff have worked hard in formulating their ideas and 
suggestions, and it is to be hoped that the book will enjoy a reputation 
worthy of their efforts.

The activities of the senior club have been confined, for the most 
part, to visits to local industries. The club has witnessed a variety of 
manufacturing processes which included everything from mining iron ore 
to the manufacture of artificial ice. Meetings for which no trips were 
planned provided time for laboratory demonstrations of numerous scien- 
tific phenomena.

This year, after the division of the Science Club into a Junior and 
Senior organization, the former elected its own officers and started ar- 
ranging a schedule of its own programs. The club's laboratory meetings 
have been tempered with occasional field trips to factories, and to places 
of scientific interest in this section of New Jersey. The laboratory pro- 
grams, carried on by members of the club, have included tallcs on radio, 
airplanes, chemistry, and rock formation.

The College High Crier has finished its first year successfully, 
and with next year's staff chosen, it hopes to carry on in the traditions 
founded by the present staff. 

The Crier was organized last fall as a four page bi-weekly pub- 
lication under the sponsorship of Phil D. Collins. A temporary staff was 
appointed until the new enterprise should be definitely founded. In 
order to select a suitable name for the paper, the staff held a competition. 
All members of the student body were urged to contribute suggestions 
for the namej Lovell Lawrence won. After the publication of the first 
four issues, tryouts for a permanent staff confirmed almost all of the 
early appointments. The staff members have remained the same through- 
out the year with the exception of new reporters, and the addition of a 
group of advertising solicitors. 

In March, because of unavoidable difficulties, the Crier had to 
switch to a monthly basis. The editors have tried to make up in quality 
what they have lost in quantity. 

The Crier was organized for several reasons, primarily, to provide 
a school newspaper, an activity which every wide-awake school should 
have, and secondly, to give some experience in journalism to those who 
were interested. Although this year there has been rather an unequal 
division of the work of the Crier, those who have been on the staff all 
agree that they have gained a valuable and enjoyable experience.

The French Club was organized last year by Miss Poreau with a 
membership of about ten students, all from the senior high school. Dur- 
ing its first year, the club w^ent to New York several times to visit inter- 
esting French places. This year the club again assembled with most of 
the original members. The meetings have been devoted to talks en various 
phases of French life, art, and literature. Miss Gatti, last year's ex- 
change student. Miss Holz, and Miss Zaya are among those who have 
addressed the club. All meetings are conducted in French, a regulation 
which has somewhat limited membership. Nevertheless, from the begin- 
ning a lively interest has been shown in this organization, an interest 
doubtless due to the sponsor. Miss Poreau.

A new feature of the sclicol this year was the girls' Tap Dancing 
class. It is under the direction of Miss Duke, and Miss Thompson from 
the College plays the piano. Only those girls who were really interested 
in tap dancing were invited to join, consequently we had a group, though 
small, of enthusiastic and hardworking tappers. Every Thursday after- 
noon the class meets and spends a very pleasant hour tapping out many 
peppy rhythms. The senior members who were in the majority, wish the 
class the best of luck and hope that the number and interest of the 
dancers will increase.

Akhough the Dramatic Club has done comparatively little in pro- 
ducing plays, it has done all it can to help any of the numerous dramatic 
productions of the school. Of these performances, the operetta "Hansel 
and Gretel," given by the school and the play "Seventeen" given by the 
senior class are the most outstanding. Many different classes have spon- 
sored entertainments of a dramatic type for assemblies, the P. T. A. and 
the College. The English department in particular has furnished many 
delightful hours with such productions as scenes from "Idylls of the 
Kine," "Evangeline," and an especially adapted version of "Romeo and

Craftangle is new this year. In September there were enough stu- 
dents interested in art to start what has turned out to be a very worthwhile 
organization. During the year the members have been busy at various 
types of art work. The first project consisted of application of designs 
to different materials j in this way many attractive articles were made. 
Around Christmas, the members made Christmas cards and succeeded in 
selling a good many, the returns of which went into the club treasury. 
Since then they have done soap-carving, wood designing, and painting. 
Though the club has not made many outside trips, it has visited exhibits 
at the Montclair Museum several times. 




On the evening of October 30th, the Junior 1 ^ chool gave n 
Halloween party. Although it was an affair for the younger students, 
many of the older ones who still enjoy the traditional games of Hallo- 
ween were present. 

Some very interesting features were originated and presented by 
members of the party committee. Among those features was a musical 
presentation by the famous Tillson brass quartet. Other entertaining num- 
bers were provided by Daniel Jenlcins who did a tap dance, and by Miss 
Harris who whistled several selections while accompanying herself on the 
banjo. Halloween games were played throughout the evening. 

The party was especially colorful as a result of the lovely and 
amusing costumes worn by the guests. Two prizes for costumes were 
awarded, one to Dorothy Fardelmann for the prettiest, and one to Paul 
Calandra for the funniest. The typically Halloween decorations provided 
by "Craftangle" were also highly effective. 


On the evening of January 29th., the Senior High held a winter 
dance. The brilliantly decorated gymnasium, the quantities of colored 
balloons, and the gay, enthusiastic gathering of young people all contrib- 
uted to the gaiety of the affair. 

The Student Council had charge of the arrangements and they 
neglected nothing. Their committees worked faithfully and showed ex- 
tremely good taste. Certainly the decoration committee deserved a unani- 
mous vote of praise for their originality. The gym was hung from one 
end to the other with gay streamers and balloons j floodlights at either end 
lent a colored glow to the whole floor. 

The music, which everyone thought was excellent, was provided by 
Phil Bennett's orchestra. Enjoyable features of the evening were the 
lucky number dance, the balloon dance, and the punch bowl which seemed 
to possess the magic quality of never being empty. 


The ColJege High School, and particularly the Senior 
class, extends its sincere thanks to the class of 1933 of 
the College for changing the name of its year book, 
La Campanilla, (the little bell) so that the High 
School might adopt that name. The College year book 
is henceforth to be called La Campana (the big bellS 
Such generosity bids fair to foster that cooperative spirit 
which should always bind the two institutions together. 

As this decision was reached rather late in the school 
year, it was impossible for our Year Book to make its 
debut under its chosen name. Next year, however, the 
two books will appear as La Campana and La Cam- 
panilla, and we feel that their names will be uniquely
