A L M
A T E R
Beneath the Jersey skies of blue
In Montclair's mountain town.
There stands our College, tried and true,
And growing in renown.
We love thy campus, love thy halls,
And oft to thee we raise
With loyal lips and loyal hearts
United songs of praise.
All hail, all hail Montclair!
To thee our voices raise.
Alma Mater, dear Montclair,
Our undying hymn of praise.
We love thy colors, dear Montclair,
The scarlet and the white.
May they forever help us dare
To choose and do the right.
And though in after years our fate
May lead us far apart.
Nor time, nor space may separate
The ties that bind the heart.

Senior Class History
We, the Class of 1932, attribute our fame to the many precedents we have set in de-
veloping the traditions of Montclair. In our Freshman year, hardly downed by the
insignificant position that was thrust upon us by the Sophomores, it was the men of our
class who gave the first evidence of the spirit that has characterized our class. We formed
the backbone of the first M. S. T. C. football team. The winter season brought basketball,
in which both girls and boys excelled. The social season was marked by our Frolic, which
was held in March in the college gymnasium.
As Sophcmores, already launched on athletic success, our girls were champions in both
basketball and hockey. The varsity basketball team also showed our prowess, since it was
made up wholly of '32's men. A friendly attitude was manifested during Freshman week,
culminating in a reception dance we gave the newcomers. Our gala occasion was the
Sophomore Hop, which started the Christmas holidays with a flourish. Nor was the
dramatic ability of our classmates neglected, as shown in the various plays and pageants
in which they took part.
Our pioneer spirit was further reflected in the varied activities of the Junior year. Ours
was the first class to hold a Junior dance for the Seniors. "Her Step-Husband," was the
play that inaugurated the custom of presenting a Junior play, proving to be a source of
enjoyment to both actors and audience. The most outstanding event of the year was the
Junior Prom, the first occasion upon which both dormitories were used for dancing. The
campus was transformed by gaily lighted lanterns that outlined the walks between
Edward Russ and Chapin Halls. It was during this year that noteworthy contributions to
The Quarterly, representing the literary ability of our classmates, and contributions to
the dramatic productions of the college were made. The high standard in the athletic
field was maintained as well.
This, our last year, has continued the established policy. In December we entertained
the Faculty at tea in Chapin Hall. Our class then made possible the installation of the
illuminated electric clock and striking system which rings the old mission bell in the tower
of the administration building, but contributing its gift fund before graduation, to com-
bine it with that left by the classes of 1930 and 1931. Practice teaching with all its attend-
ing seriousness has made possible only one other social function during the year before
the arrival of Senior week. Here again was an innovation. Early in April our class gave a
formal dance for the Alumni of the two preceding classes. Our closing week of school
began with the Senior Ball and following in rapid succession came a garden tea party for
the Faculty, a tea dance, a luncheon in our honor by the Faculty, a picnic with the
Faculty, Baccalaureate services and finally. Commencement.
As one of the earliest classes to graduate, we will endeavor to carry on the work of
establishing the customs of our Alma Mater.
The Class of 1932
DORIS G. ADAMS
Doris' versatility makes her an outstanding person in
every way. Her membership in Rohwec marks her as a
good student, and her position as feature editor of the
Pelican is indicative of her executive and artistic
abilities. And can Doris dance? — Divinely! Her attractive
grace combined with an inexhaustible supply of spon-
taneous and sparkling wit, makes her a most interesting
member of our student body. And have you ever seen
the Adams-Hornby domain on Chapin's first floor? It's
just as you would expect — lovely and artistic.
HELEN E. ANDERSON
"And is she kind as she is fair for beauty lives with
kindness? Yes, she is kind as she is fair" — and as wise.
Her keen mind and her remarkable versatility have aided
in securing for her such honors as membership in Aphes-
teon and Kappa Delta Pi. We need not stretch our
memories to recall her as lovely Queen of the May in the
spring of '29. Her Freshman year proved her a capable
debater, too. May her teaching career prove as success-
ful as her college career has!
HELAINE R. ARNOLD
Sometimes Helaine seems to be the acme of sophistica-
tion, but then, at other times, she startles us by her
naivete. What is the explanation? We don't know —
that's just Helaine. She possesses a unique personality,
standing out as an individual and never as a possible
type. There is an air of "something different" about
Helaine. We admire her poise and respect her judgment
and as we separate and go our different ways, we hope
all she undertakes will be marked with success.
Kay hasn't been with us long — only a year in fact —
but in that short time, we have learned quite a bit about
this lively blonde. She has a secret talent for music — so
her friends tell us. And is she rooting for Dartmouth or
M.S.T.C.? Don't know!
She can sideswipe any car (any make) on the road
without even touching a fender! Yes, she and a certain
other Senior have memories of last year's summer school
at M.S.T.C. "Nuf said!
ETHEL JANE BELLIS
Mathematics major, history minor; with what statis-
tics will she be able to back her historical facts! Truly,
no little stress should be laid on conscientiousness when
one is evaluating a future teacher: that quality in Ethel
has served to help her and loaned encouragement to
more than one professor, made pessimistic by the rest of
us. We feel that she would never shirk any responsibility.
After this, need we say more?
HELEN M. BENNETT
This curly haired science major has discovered that
we need not go to college just to study. One can see her
at any time in the day with the owner of the car she
often drives. Her unusual coiffure always excites atten-
tion, and her peculiar charm holds it. She belongs to the
Science Club and was elected to Kappa Delta Pi — which
speaks for itself. In truth, she has made her presence at
Inez certainly proved that there is a big correlation
between natural ability and achievement. Her scholastic
attainments which secured for her a year of study in
France are ample proof of the latter quality; for proof of
the former, we have only to remember how many chapel
programs have been brightened immeasurably by Inez'
lovely voice. But singing is not Inez' only talent; she
can act and she can preside at French Club meetings.
Pat was one of the fortunate ones picked from among
our number to spend a year abroad. She represented us
in France last year. Plowever, even we who stayed be-
hind won't forget the pleasure of seeing her walk beside
the Rhine in her lovely picture hat! — thanks to Mr.
Sprague's motion pictures. The school, to say nothing of
Chapin Hall, will not be quite the same place after Pat
has gone on to conquer new fields. You see, we expect big
things from her.
To characterize Grace best we must say that she is a
lover of all that is fine. Specifically, she knows and ap-
preciates great literature, fine music, and real art. She
not only reads poetry but creates it. Faculty and stu-
dents alike admire her. We feel that she will bring much
that is valuable to the students whom she will teach.
Her graceful dignity, her quiet reserve, and her earnest
devotion to her favorite studies predestine her success
in her chosen field.
Sarah is an outstanding student and athlete. A member
of the executive committee of Aphesteon, the vice-presi-
dent of Kappa Delta Pi, and president of the Math Club
in her Junior year; and a possessor of an "M" for ath-
letics. Ah! you say that there is a well-rounded student?
But wait — she has one fault — she gets jokes before
Has Helen slipped by you unnoticed? Those who know
her find her graciously modest and charming. But Helen
is more than just what's "lovely" in a girl; she is intelli-
gent, alert, and capable. Her term papers are a teacher's
pride and joy, and on the basis of that brutal normal
curve, our mental anguish is great if we even try to
compete with her. Like so many other remarkable
students at M.S.T.C., she's an English major.
VERA M. BREEN
Titian hair and blue eyes, the cutest dimples and plenty
of pep! No wonder we think Vienna will have an idealistic
impression of American girls, for Vera represented us
there in '30-'3L On her return to us, the German Club
made Vera its president, and its accomplishments this
year are proof of her capable leadership. But she can
also drive her Pontiac — and when Vera tears past signals
and doesn't get stopped, you'll know she's just added the
policeman on the corner to her collection of victims.
She's that way.
LOIS C. BRITTLE
Loie's not very big — but, oh my! She's big enough to
make a certain young man's fancy turn to thoughts of
love. Her interests lie in traveling, dancing — and study-
ing, of course. She is a member of the Dramatic Club,
drives a Ford roadster, and tells us she plays golf — but
we know different. Her trip to Europe this summer
occupies everyone's attention — and can Lois tell some
rare stories in a rare way — !
BEATRICE L. BRODHEAD
An overflowing, childlike enthusiasm, dancing brown
eyes, and a fertile imagination — these are some of Bea's
priceless possessions. Her charm strikes the heart, and
her merit wins the soul. Within two short years at
M.S.T.C. she has become a member of Kappa Delta Pi
and Aldornia, as well as literary editor of the Quarterly.
Good luck, Bea! You are destined for a career which only
a person of your unusual ability could realize.
HARRIET E. BROSS
Harriet Bross's education is sure to be a liberal one.
Her profound interest in all contemporary fields of learn-
ing denotes the many sided development of her person-
ality. As a member of Aldornia, she has shown herself to
be interested in opera, drama, and the best literature of
every country. Her cultural enrichment should aid greatly
the creation of a fine teaching personality — and she isn't
just a student. She indulges in social activities. Ask
Miriam has two special interests, the shore and the
shore. Oh, of course, she's interested in the teaching
profession and also in dramatics. Miriam is one of the
best noted girls we know. She is always surrounded by a
group of friends. And never can she handle her car! Her
many-sided personality and her vivacity will win the
admiration of all her students. Oh yes, we almost forgot
to remind you, her major interest is English — Here's to
A. BLANCHE BURGESS
Blanche is that tall, thin young lady who doesn't even
cast a shadow. Perhaps studying diligently in history and
biology keeps her thin but mentally alert. She is a mem-
ber of the Science Club, Clio, and Contemporary Club.
Coming from Tom's River is reason enough why she
likes swimming and boating. Besides being a very in-
teresting individual, she's an extremely social individual
— ask Polly, or any one in Chapin or Russ.
They may talk all they like about Murads, but Harold
smoking his pet pipe is nonchalance personified. From
the part he has taken in activities — Dramatic Club,
Math Club, Choir, President of Agora, etc. — we have
had proof of his contributions to his class. Then who
could ever forget Harold, the actor? After seeing you in
"Outward Bound," Harold, we really shouldn't be too
surprised to see your name on Broadway. We might
mention that the aforementioned young man was in
charge of group and individual pictures for La Cam-
RICHARD T. CAHILL
Dick couldn't let the girls have anything on him. Tall
and blond, why shouldn't he look nice in a black cordu-
roy suit? Just to eclipse all the girls, you understand.
But then we don't mean to insinuate that his popularity
depends on clothes. Participation in dramatics, member-
ship in the Senate, his flair for travel, his genius for
compatibility and his other social accomplishments
make him "quite a man" on our campus.
MARGARET E. CALIFANO
Margaret is a classic example of the quiet and studious
type. She is unique in that they say she has never cut a
class since she has been up here. But never mind, Mar-
garet knows her science! A combination of the carefree
serenity and a worthy stick-to-it-ive-ness characterizes
her outlook on life. And, believe us, the fact that one has
a male relative among the slender ranks of this species
at M.S.T.C. can add not a little to one's prestige!
JOHN C. CENDO
The very masculine object of so many feminine
crushes. Perhaps we should look into the matter. Well,
he was president of his class in his Sophomore year (ask
the Freshies of that year), is a basketball player par
excellence, swings a mean racquet in tennis, and finds
the Chapin dance floor ideally suited to his needs. We
haven't spent much time on his lessons, but then neither
has he! However, they get done. All the more power and
glory to him.
MARCIA E. COOLEY
Did you know Pete's room at the dormitory was the
nearest thing to a zoo one could find? She has a rare
collection of cute little animals of all shapes and sizes.
Another proof of her original bent was her puppet
theater for the Shakespeare course. Remember it? She is
earnest in all she undertakes. The combination of earnest-
ness and reliability can take a young lady a long way,
especially when it is reinforced by the sincerity that is
apparent in Marcia's make-up.
Two years ago the year book said of Corky, ' If duty
and pleasure crash, let duty go to smash." Though we
know no one who so loves a good time as does Corky, we
also know that this was applied in frivolous jest, for this
diminutive person has stood out in school work and school
play. She has shown especial interest in Clio, dramatics,
and sports, and has proved an indispensable member of
our library staff.
EDWARD J. COUGHLIN
Here are some pictures we will always remember of
Ed — knocking a fast one on the baseball diamond;
prancing around the green as one of the Merry Men in
"Robin Hood," as one of the big bassos among our Voix
Celestes, dancing in the dim lights of the dorm living-
rooms on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, taking active
part in student activities and clubs, and flashing hither
and yon on the basketball court, helping to make a name
PALMA A. CRISTIANO
Polly is one of those girls who are beautiful and not
dumb. As one of our best students, she takes an active
part in Kappa Delta Pi, Rohwec, and the Science Club.
And may we ask, what do you do in your spare time,
Palma? Have you ever seen Polly "stay put?" She
seems to be the embodiment of pep, vim, and vigor.
FANNIE S. CROSS
Fanny is one more Senior that Montclair will miss. If
we neglect to stress her exceptionally fine qualities, it is
because we have run out of superlatives. Her contribu-
tions as a member of the Service Committee of the Col-
lege, the Science Club, and the Opera Study Club have
placed her among the Seniors whose graduation will
leave vacancies in Montclair which will be difficult to fill.
MARY R. CUMMINGS
In May, we find all the qualities that go to make up a
true friend. While there are only five feet of her, there is
much of her character that we do not see. Always ready
to do her best for others. May is one of those people who
believe that kindness and courtesy can overcome many
of life's obstacles. She was one of the members of the
class who were fortunate enough to go abroad last
summer — and from all accounts May had a grand time.
GRACE L. CUNNINGHAM
Just the sort of girl you like to see coming toward you!
Her smile, sweet and sincere; her manner, congenial and
kind; her attitude, earnest and real; all contribute to
make her an entirely likeable student and a very promis-
ing prospective teacher. Her favorite work is in the social
studies department with the English department rank-
ing next. Music and physical education are two of her
very serious hobbies. Yes, she's the sort of girl who would
leave a permanently vacant spot if she left our Senior
E. JE ANNETTE CURLEY
Jeannette has the jump on most of us — that's one sure
thing. Did you know that she got her engagement ring
when we were Juniors? Now do you wonder that she
says that her interests are many and diversified? Scholas-
tically, Jeannette's primary interests are in science and
mathematics. She is a member of the two clubs that are
sponsored in these fields. Well, whatever else it might be
— we wish you the best of luck !
LESTER J. DeBEER
We can safely say that Lester DeBeer is Montclair's
greatest contribution to the teaching profession. An ideal
combination of subject matter and versatile personality
makes him the answer to a superintendent's fervent
prayer. His fluent speech, likeable manner, and com-
manding presence lead us all to predict a marvelously
successful career for this member of Kappa Delta Pi.
This does not mean that he is the proverbial pedagogue.
All the fine traits attributed to any worth while man are
likewise his in superabundance. May others appreciate
him as keenly as we do!
CATHERINE C. DELANEY
French and Latin are the subjects of her choice, and
the Classical Club is enhanced by her affiliation with it.
We, who have seen her day in and day out, wonder if her
unusual beauty would not put certain classic ladies to
shame — or at least cause some envy on their part. A
good student, a fine friend, a fascinating person, and a
prospective teacher of unusual promise — Catherine De-
laney. We're counting on you to come through with colors
MARY L. DEVOE
There is a quiet efficiency personified in this half of the
Van Eps-Devoe alliance. We don't know whether Mary
is Helen's shadow or Helen is Mary's, but, nevertheless,
if you want one of them, just look for the other. Mary
has the peculiar ability to appear rather quiet and
serene, but she has that merry twinkle in her eyes that is
an unfailing sign of the good-humor that just won't be
downed no matter what tests are coming and what term
papers are due.
When you hear some one in the crowd say, "Who's
that cute little girl with the pretty blonde hair?", you'll
know Eileen has again attracted attention, and one can
hardly say that these occasions are few and far between.
Her paradoxical nature of calmness and spontaneity is
most alluring. Eileen's ability and her charming per-
sonality won her the presidency of the Contemporary
Club in her Junior year. As a writer for the Pelican and
as a member of Rohwec, she has given further evidence
of her wide variety of interests.
Lee's a French student par excellence, and English
comes in for its share — but what's that got to do with
her favorite color's being green? We wonder is the erst-
while Paul's Esmeralda painted green? But there, Lee,
we won't pry into your private affairs. Your public life
here on the M.S.T.C. campus has been sufficiently com-
mendable for us to suppose that your private life has not
ELEANORE A. DOOLEY
"Dooley," her friends call her. She's an athlete with a
heart as big as her prowess is fine. She's president of the
Women's A. A. and takes lively part in many of the
athletic activities of the college. Eleanore's also a mathe-
matician with charter membership in Aphesteon. Her
other hobby is dancing, and can she dance? Give her the
music, the man, and the moment and Dooley is happy.
Hers is the enthusiastic personality that never fails to
attract plenty of friends or to cause unluckier ones to
look on while she gets a kick out of life.
LUCILLE N. DREWS
Lucille is a student who is really happy. Wherever you
hear a giggle it's certain to be Lu's; and you don't have
to turn around to find cut. Never will Eddie Russ miss
this young lady! Lu is president of the Spanish Club and
a worthy member of Aphesteon. At that rate we ought
to be hearing from you, Louie! We'll be satisfied with
an advanced calculus written in Spanish. Then too, Lu,
we'll be quite patient and not expect you to publish it
for at least two years.
HELEN E. EKDAHL
Ducky is a pal and a good one. She has brains too, but
she doesn't force the fact down your throat. EngUsh is
her special interest, and she likes almost everything
connected with it. Her neatness, reserve, sincerity, and
geniality make her personality one that is readily ap-
preciable to her friends and teachers alike. We hope that
Helen will have as many merited friends in her chosen
occupation as she has acquired here. Eddie Russ will
miss her, and Montclair will miss her; but our loss is
someone's else gain.
One of Dot's outstanding characteristics is her fault-
less taste. She vies with one or two others of our fashion-
able Seniors in setting us an example of what the smart
young woman will be wearing this season. Her interests
in school are math and English, but, outside, they are
social activities and also, we are told, social work. And
can Dot drive that big car around!
A dark, slender girl with two dancing eyes. What
wonder that she elects to study the language of the
ladies who wear mantillas, gayly colored shawls, and
crimson roses? What wonder that her companions are
always glad for her vivacious presence at any social
gathering? Clara is an indispensable unit of our Senior
class. She is half of the Nixon-Ferraro team.
Elsie is a student of the languages and a very sincere
one, too. Her special interests in extra-curricular activi-
ties would naturally be the French and German Clubs,
and that's what they are. Now we want to ask a question.
Has any one ever seen Elsie in the library when she
wasn't just as busy as a bee? This quality of industry is
ever a necessary one in the teaching profession. We hope
you'll be just as successful a teacher as you've been a
MARY C. FITZPATRICK
A little Irish girl with a big sense of humor. She has
very dark hair that changes its coiffure frequently —
sometimes it's long, and sometimes it's short! Mathe-
matics is the special interest — at least, we suppose it is.
But you never can tell what's hidden behind those Irish
eyes — and pretty ones, too. Of course, Mary has taken
part in several school activities, but her major interest
is in the Math Club. Mary's outstanding personality
will make her a marvelous teacher.
IRENE D. FORSYTH
Another fair lady invading what has, heretofore, been
considered the realm of men! Irene knows her mathe-
matics and science and pursues their weird angles and
formulae most vigorously, both in class and in her club
work. La Campanilla has an especial claim on her — she
was its assistant personals editor last year. Her popularity
here and the many varied manifestations of her ex-
ceptional ability as a student portend a very successful
career for her. When you're old and famous, Irene, don't
forget your old pals!
VIOLET D. GALL
Violet is our wonder girl. She dashes into the library,
digests whole volumes, and sifts out exactly the material
to be covered in the exam the next period. Violet is an
elfish, sparkling little creature who can always afford to
chuckle when the report cards make their appearance.
Practice teaching was just one more enjoyable experience
for her. Just to prove her versatility, we might point out
that we are told that she jerks a mean soda on those
scorching summer days.
TKELMA L. GARDNER
Not yet a professor, but always absent-minded! And
pep! Why not pose for the Full-o-pep ad, Thelma, and
increase the company's sales a hundred percent? For-
getful about most things, Thelma never violates a holiday
by coming to school, especially when the holiday is on
Blue Monday. Yes, we all agree that Thelma is the typical
college co-ed. In our opinion, any one who is as full of life
and bubbling over with fun as our "Prunes," just can't
help being a first-rate teacher.
Our loss and Europe's gain for a year! However,
Stella, with all her charming ways came back among us
again for our Senior year. Proficiency in her studies and
a very likeable personality, combined with the excep-
tional experience which she acquired during her year
abroad as an exchange student, should serve to make
Stella an enviable teacher. Just think of the many ex-
periences she will be able to share with her students.
DORIS E. GEROE
Doris is one of the quietest members of the Senior
class. There is, however, a merry little twinkle in those
big eyes, and everybody knows that denotes a sense of
humor. The Math Club and the math department are
Doris' particular fields, but just to show that she be-
lieves in having varied interests, she has done a good bit
of work with the English department. With an even dis-
position such as you have, we know you'll be a first rate
Little men can do big things — and so can little women.
(We aren't quoting Louisa M. Alcott; we found it out by
observation.) This little lady is a history major and an
English minor. Two of her favorite studies are sociology
and philosophy. Her chief hobbies are reading and hiking.
Club interests center about Opera Study, psychology,
and the League of Women Voters. In a word, she's the
usual well-rounded Montclairion ! Don't take our word
for it; witness her large body of intimate friends!
ALICE J. GLANNAN
' Allie" is that young sophisticate with a heart full of
love for M.I.T. as well as M.S.T.C. She is an English
major with membership in Kappa Delta Pi. However,
that isn't the fraternity which belongs to the pin she
wears! And speaking of what she wears, well — Mont-
clair has never elected its best dressed woman, but we
know that Allie is "it." Our experience with her per-
sonality makes it easy to understand why she's the
personality expert for La Campanilla. Being a good
scholar and going to Boston keep Alice all in a "stew."
H. MONROE GORDON
Walks there another man who does so very many
things so very well with so very little apparent effort. He
always has time for a typical M.S.T.C. chat in the hall.
He's a real football player. He's a good student yet never
lacks time to fulfill gracefully his social obligations. He's
collegiate in the highest sense. Of course, we have in
mind a liberal education no less. Who said ' to know her
was a liberal education?" Anyway he probably agrees.
ELEANOR L. GORHAM
What Ho! Hello Beautiful. And the saying "Beautiful
but Dumb" is out in this case. Yes, sir. As vice-president
of the Student Council, an outstanding member of the
Dramatic Club and an athlete she has proved her merits.
Oh, yes — there are other things to be considered — she
sings and dances — Have you ever seen El dance? Don't
miss it. Then, too, when the time came for class rings —
who engineered the project, installments and all that
went with it? Why, El, of course!
Not everybody can win the tennis championship one
year and win membership to the national honorary
educational fraternity the next year. And even if an
occasional person could do that could he excel, as Dan
does, in basketball? Judging by his accomplishments in
athletics, studies and general social life, we conclude that
Dan must possess "the well-integrated personality."
That seems to be the only way that we can account for
his being attractive to and attracted by only girls who
belong to honor societies.
ANNA F. GRAZIOSO
She's all that's neat, demure, and sweet, and what is
more, all of these characteristics extend far beneath the
surface. This is evidenced by her initiative and sense of
responsibility which all those who associate with her
recognize and depend upon. An earnest student, a con-
scientious club member, a good debator, Ann is indis-
pensable to our class and to the college. Her chief inter-
ests lie in the field of English but she has also shown her
versatility in debating and in Italian Club activities.
JOSEPH A. GRIGO
In Joe Grigo we have a highly competent student whose
self chosen contacts denote fine taste, a pleasant com-
panion whose sense of humor places him "in demand,"
a prospective teacher blessed with all that only an able
person could develop into the sum total of his assets. Al-
dornia realized this and brought it to our attention. Good
and good-looking is Joe! His photos look like Pepsodent
ads. They say that the French have high educational
standards. Well those mademoiselles surely do like Joe!
BERNIECE L. GRIMES
We think that Berniece must be here just to prove
that there is such a thing as a well integrated personality.
She always has time to do her work, attend dances, chat
hither and yon with companions, make good reports in
class — and over and above all — "make" one of the
varsity debating teams. Can you better that record?
But Berniece can; she makes Aldornia and Kappa Delta
Pi to prove it can be done.
CHARLOTTE C. GROSS
" — Her voice was ever soft,
Gentle, and low, an excellent thing in woman."
This verse fits our Charlye as though Shakespeare had
written it for her! Have you ever seen her fussed or
excited about anything? No, neither have we! And as a
hostess we have never seen her equal. Just recall the tea
given to the training teachers and the Seniors who went
out in the winter. Charlotte was chairman — and we know
you'll agree with us on the hostess proposition. Charlye's
major interests are English and biology.
LUCY M. GROSS
Latin major, history minor. We suppose that's just
seme more of this "correlation" we hear so much about.
Well, a good choice of subjects, a good record in acquiring
the subject matter, and a very likeable personality. We
judge from the above, and from her present success in
practicing, that she will strike a high mark in the pro-
MARIA C. HANLON
The world may know Molly as a quiet girl, but Eddie
Russ knows her as one of its staunchest friends. Never
lacking in poise, her conversation has a subtle note, and
her blue eyes ever reflect the humor which is veiled. But
if you'd like to see Molly beam radiance, just ask her how
she likes Dennis King. Of course, you know Molly is a
history major. That's really quite a responsibility when
you consider the fact that there aren't any books on the
unit fusion plan yet.
ANITA L. HARDING
Personality plus is the girl we chose for class president.
We envy her efficiency, for she not only does enough
work for three people but even finds time to say "hello"
and tell you the latest news about everything. An athlete
with social poise is a rare combination. Then, of course,
Anita was a member of our Junior Prom Committee.
Don't you remember how beautifully the promenade was
decorated? We just can't resist this — ask Anita if she
knows a certain Bob!
CHARLOTTE C. HARVEY
Despite the fact that Upsala (we're not dealing in per-
sonalities now) comes right up to the back door, Charlotte
cast her lot for four years with us. We can't speak for her,
but we know that we aren't sorry. Her achievements
here as a student and as a prospective teacher, are best
proved by her membership in two of our finest honorary
societies, Rohwec and Kappa Delta Pi. With all sincerity,
we compliment Charlotte on the manner in which she has
conducted her career here.
ELIZABETH N. HEATH
Betty came to us as a graduate student to learn how
to be a teacher. We predict that she is well-suited to the
profession she has chosen; Mr. Webster considers her an
asset to our group. Of course she's majoring in English.
She's quiet in class but always has an excellent answer
when called upon to recite. Sorry that you weren't with
us all through college, Betty: but, on the other hand,
we're glad you came, even though only for a year.
Her mountain of A's and her record of offices held in
Aldornia, Cercle Francais, and other clubs might give
an impression of solemn studiousness and exude a gentle
odor of midnight oil, to one who did not know her. But
she does it all without apparent effort and without
becoming pedantic. Dislikes — oysters, jazz, 100*^7 Ameri-
cans, tea-parties and bridge. Likes — puns, French
literature. Cape Cod, frogs, large phrases, Hershey bars.
Knows how to — guffaw at Conrad's lectures.
ALICE B. HENNINGS
Alice is a blonde from Hoboken who always knows her
lesson and puts us all to shame with a superior piece of
work. She and Anna are always together — you know —
cup and saucer. Here is a girl who, we feel, will m-ake as
great a success of life as she has made in her college
career. Incidentally, we have information upon which to
base this forecast ; Alice made a huge success of practice
teaching! You know what that means!
EVELYN L. HILL
Dottie is another of those young ladies who had to
travel all the way to Europe to find "My Hero." Johnny
seems to be the answer to Dottie's prayer, and so now
she goes around the campus singing"Hearts and Flowers."
She is an English major, a member of the Dramatic Club,
and half of the Jansky-Hill team. We hear you were
practicing in Sommerville, Dottie. How did we find out?
Oh, a birdie — and he was well pleased with your efforts.
MILDRED L. HIRSCHOFF
Mil is not over-serious, and she's not too gay, but she
presents the happy combination of gravity and jest that
is a pleasure to discover in any one. She has been a
worthy member of Rohwec since her Sophomore year, as
well as a member of Clio, the Contemporary Club, and
the Philosophy Club. We wonder what many of the
assembly program committees would have done without
Mil's support. In teaching. Mil assures us that she is
going to consider the student as a "modifiable social
PHYLLIS T. HOGAN
Some people have an infinite capacity for under-
standing others, whether or not they say a great deal
about it. Phyllis is one of these. She appreciates the best
that life can offer and tries to share her joy with others.
By all of this, we do not mean to say that she is an austere
philanthropist. She is primarily a student; generous,
impulsive, witty, sincere; she races through a student's
life adding zest to others' ideas of college. Taste, ideals,
and distinction characterize the impression which she
WALTER A. HOHN
For he's a jolly good fellow — which nobody would
deny. Walter is known about the campus for his utter
reliability and dependability — rain or shine. He would
put any fair weather friend to shame. He is interested in
sciences — those studies with the long names of Greek
derivation; at least that's his obvious interest. Judging
by the example he sets for us, we should say that he must
be interested in the science of living well. Certainly this
is no mean asset for a teacher.
DOROTHY M. HOLMAN
For an example of an "All-round Girl" we look to
Dottie Holman. Scholastically? She ranks among the
first. Athletically? Just look at the lists of the varsity
teams. Socially? A glance at her dancing and you'll plan
to cut in on her. Dottie will always be to us a pleasant
companion, a steadfast friend, and a reliable co-worker.
Membership in Math Club, Aphesteon, and Kappa Delta
Pi prove the veracity of the statement — here is an all-
MILDRED M. HOLOTA
As ore of Montclair's foremost hockey enthusiasts,
Mil shows in her outdoor activities the same sense of
sportsmanship and fair play that permeates her whole
philosophy of life. She throws herself whole-heartedly
into anything that interests her, and thus she shows us
how to accomplish things. Mil's cheerful friendliness has
made her an asset not only to the life of the school itself
but to the life of Eddie Russ, also! Best of luck Mil, in
your teaching experiences!
Jo's natural ability and refreshing personality have
carried her into many fields, especially in dramatics,
where she has distinguished herself as a second Eva le
Gallienne. In her Junior year she was elected to Kappa
Delta Pi. But Jo's greatest single service to Montclair
has been her work as editor on the Montclair Quarterly.
Yes, if it's literature, art, or music, Jo's interested. In
fact, we consider her not only Montclair's Peter Pan
(ask Mr. Bohn) but a very cultured young woman.
RUTH C. HORNBY
Hornby is 'Miss England" in America. She's English —
this accounts for her inability to understand American
humor. Her activities here at college have been numer-
able, including the presidency of Kappa Delta Pi, editor-
ship of the Pelican, charter member in Aldornia, and
membership in the Dramatic Club and Choir. Perhaps
one might list among her outside activities a certain
"Cliffie," perhaps one might even call him a major
interest — you'll have to ask Ruth. Nevertheless, she's a
good student, a good sport, and a good friend.
GEORGE W. HOWES
These little men who do big things. Well we don't need
to testify. Rohwec will supply that information. George
is a good student, but that is not all. The fellows and
girls who are well acquainted with him say much for his
character, his congeniality, and his utter dependability
and generosity. We hope that his pupils will appreciate
him as we have. It seems to us, George, that you have
just about all the requisites for a successful teacher.
WILLIAM F. HUNT
Bill never attempts anything unless he is able to do it
whole-heartedly. We have an idea that he has a secret
desire to be a man of prominence. A fine spirit and un-
bounded enthusiasm are among his most commendable
qualities. The orchestra. Agora, and the Italian and
Dramatic Clubs all vouch for his constant willingness to
be of service wherever and whenever he is needed. And
do you remember Bill as the famous Russian violinist on
Junior Day? Best of luck in teaching!
In the field of real good-natured companionship and
genuinely pleasing affability, no one can surpass Jake.
He's at home anywhere from the class room to the dance
floor and the football field. He has meant something to
the college that we will probably not see exactly replaced.
We do sincerely hope that he may have as successful a
career in his chosen field as he has had here. We know
that we shall miss him, but others will benefit by our
Anyone who has been in an English literature class
with Jennie Jaffe will spontaneously and involuntarily
commend the type of work which she does. With no
obvious effort, she achieves what others have labored for.
Her notebooks are masterpieces. A penetrating mind, a
seemirgly limitless amount of good nature and sports-
manship, and a lively enthusiasm for life in general make
Jennie an excellent student and a promising teacher.
Here are our best wishes — but we know you'll be a big
success even without them.
EDYTHE M. JANSKY
Who is it at M.S.T.C. that has not at some time been
the target for "Cleo's" unusual and sparkling wit? This
titian-haired miss's droll humor has caused many people
embarrassing moments, v,^hile her good-heartedness has
won her many friends. This past summer saw her among
those lucky ones who went abroad, and her tales of eld
European customs are remarkable. She has been active
in many of the school's social affairs, is on the staff of the
Pelican, and holds the vice-presidency of the Senior
LOUISE J. JOHNSON
Louise's quiet way is misleading. One has only to know
her to sense her intelligence, capability, and delightful
sense of humor. Both the Quarterly Staff and Aldornia
have realized her worth. Never too busy to help another,
friend or foe — save that she has no foe — Louise is depend-
able to the nth degree. She must have read Emerson's
essay on 'The American Scholar" and put it into practice.
Knowledge to her is just raw material to be used for the
creation of further knowledge.
Helen is another of these enviable Montclair science
majors who can flaunt a car beneath the very eyes of
miserable bus-patron commuters! She is a person be-
neath whose calm exterior lurks just the right amount of
frivolity to make her thoroughly likeable. Tall, blonde
and stately, and, well perhaps the word we want is —
ELEANOR K. JONES
Perhaps there is no better gift than the ability to
create quiet, unassuming, undemonstrative companion-
ship. This quality, Eleanor's friends would tell us, is one
of her greatest assets. There isn't much we can say about
it, but then, people who do a great deal and never say
much are content to have us feel a great deal without
writing about it. Dare we mischievously wonder if her
former interest in Debating League meetings was
forensic or social?
Hail the ideal English major! She sees plays and operas
galore, and, what's more, sees them appreciatively. She
can tell you all about "Allison's House," "Tristram and
Isolde," "The Barretts of Wimpole Street," or any other
play or opera of which you want a worthwhile discussion.
Her criticism stands approved as said. Soon some school
principal will be thinking to himself (or aloud), "There's
nothing monotonous about this teacher's personality.
She's a real Montclairion!" You're a great advertisement,
We'll wager that a certain school in France has a very
good opinion of Americans in general — that is, if they
think we're ail like Claire. Her graciousness, her sweet-
ness, her thorough-going loveliness, her ability, and her
wide range of interests all combine to make her the sort
that the psych department, the French department,
Chapin Hall, and the college in general will miss greatly.
You have our very best wishes for your success, Claire,
in spite of the fact that we don't think you'll ever need
Hail this firm supporter of psychology! Surely Jessie's
study in this department, combined with her major and
minor, should make her one of our most efficient teachers.
Her popularity on campus is a sure index to the popular-
ity which we prophesy for her when she enters a different
phase of educational activity. We might add a personal
touch here. Jessie is another one of those young ladies
who believes in variety. We never know whether we shall
see her hair long or short !
MARGARET A. KIRSCH
It's hard to talk about Marge without talking about
Bernie. Where one is, you will undoubtedly discover the
other. Marge is especially interested in athletics and has
demonstrated her talents in that line all through college.
She also likes debating, except with — , never mind whom.
An efficient, capable, and interesting person — a true
friend — that's Marge. One of the greatest calamities of
Senior year was that Marge and Bernie weren't out
practicing at the same time. Well, never mind, maybe
you'll both teach in the same school next year!
One of those students of rare ability — and successful
application whose unusual scholastic achievement has
enabled her to spend a year abroad (in Vienna to be
exact). We need only hear her experiences to envy both
her and her prospective students. She studies French as
well as German and has belonged to the clubs which
further the study of both of these languages. The Con-
temporary Club is another of her interests. She has also
been active in the entertainments sponsored by the
foreign language department.
EDNA M. KOLTER
The science department loses one of its strongest sup-
porters and most efficient workers in Edna. She demon-
strated her abilities as secretary of the Science Club in her
Junior year and as Dr. Hadley's capable laboratory
assistant this year. Everybody will agree that Edna
knows her biology! She has also been active in the field
of mathematics and in student activities. We're almost
sure that if we could be in your class we'd be able to
learn something about biology too!
HELEN M. KOLTER
People by the name of Koiter certainly seem to have a
weakness for science — but, as we have seen, therein lies
their strength! When Helen does something, she does it
well. She launches on any project and sees it through,
and so when we put our confidence in her, we know it is
not misplaced. Personality, dependability, and sincerity
are three requisites ever sought for in a teacher. Since
Helen has all three of these qualities, we know she'll be
a huge success.
ISABELLA R. KUNZMANN
Looks are deceiving in 'Kunzie." She invariably ap-
pears calm and reserved, yet when she speaks we are
stunned by the cleverness and irony of her humor.
Though she is one of the proud science majors, she is also
fond of music and for two years was an active member
of the Glee Club. Another important interest brings her
back to Chapin Hall at the last minute every Sunday
night. Of course we'd like to tell you more about this
outside interest — but that wouldn't be fair.
JOSEPH E. KUTNER
Another brilliant history student — witness his member-
ship in Rohwec and Kappa Delta Pi. But Joe isn't
interested entirely in the past, an investigation into his
participation in social affairs at the college has shown.
His versatility, it is rumored, extends even into athletics,
particularly soccer. His work as an individual student, as
a student government officer, have proved his ability
here and the application of that ability. It must be an
able newcomer who takes Joe's place at M.S.T.C.
Frank has spent only two years here, but in one half
the time it takes the rest of us, he has gained an astound-
ing amount of popularity. He seems always able to find
the other half of a twosome for a short chat in the corridor.
Yet, he always has time for his work and social affairs
here in school. He is one of these rare creatures who can
combine recreation and scholastic requirements in a
MIRIAM M. LIEBERMAN
Do you know Miriam? Of course! She's a German
major and an English minor, but she has diversified her
elective work in the social studies. She has rather a com-
prehensive background, don't you think? Miriam has
been very active in the German Club. Although she is
rather quiet, she has a very outstanding personality that
will win the admiration of all her students. Don't you
wish you were back in high school so you could be in
HELEN D. LOTEE
Another devotee to the beauty of classic literature,
Helen has figured prominently in Latin plays, pageants,
and other dramatic enterprises. Next to Latin, she likes
English. And next to teaching Latin and English, she'd
like to — well — . And we just can't resist mentioning her
long blonde hair. A very large number of people come to
us from Paterson, but if they all contributed as much as
Helen has to collegiate life here, we should be soliciting
more. Best of luck, Helen!
H. JUNE MAHR
June is the bugologist of the class — and everybody
goes buggy when June does. Her interests He in two
directions, Chris and bugs. She's a member of the Science
Club, the Dramatic Club, and goes out for athletics. She
was among the chosen few who saw literary England and
France last summer and returned craving English tea
and Parisian champagne. Montclairions were always so
sweet to June that when she broke her ankle they were
at a loss for a way to be sweeter, to make up for it.
As an athlete and a student, Genie's there. When will
her speed and finesse on the varsity basketball team be
forgotten? As a student. Genie's a member of Kappa
Delta Pi. We are advocating Maines' Maps for use in
the teaching of English and the social studies. Genie can
make better maps than any you've ever seen. Besides
all this, she can harmonize beautifully — and listen to
Bing, and Guy, and Russ. Pier liveliness will be missed.
ADELINE M. MAIR
"A noble woman, nobly planned." Adeline has the
faculty for leading people on and making them like it.
Gracious, dignified, sincere, she is ideally suited to the
various executive offices to which she has been elected.
The Dramatic Club benefitted by one year of her capable
leadership. Aldornia now boasts that privilege. Could
more popularity among college students be based on such
genuine ability — as that upon which Adeline's is based —
there would be a new, ideal college student.
ELSIE R. MARSHALL
Did you ever notice that Elsie has the sweetest smile?
Evidently, we're not the only ones who think so! Elsie
is very interested in mathematics, and you'll often find
her fooling around with the most intriguing little instru-
ments in one of the math rooms during a free period.
Membership in the Philosophy, German, Mathematics,
and Dramatics Clubs has shown her diversified interests.
Whenever we think of Elsie, another name pops into our
minds — Anna Grazioso. These two are inseparable
SALVATOR G. MARTINO
It's great to be liked by all the men — and still greater
if the girls add their regard. Sol has been active both
socially and scholastically. He helped make his Sopho-
more Dance and his Junior Prom successes. During his
Junior year he was treasurer of the Italian Club and vice-
president of the Philosophy Club. We are sure his good
all-around participation in college life will not fail to
stand Sol in good stead in years to come.
ANGELO M. MARZULLI
Mr. Marzulli had a wide experience in the educational
and scientific fields before he came to Montclair. He has
stolen a march on us, for he has two degrees and has
already had several years of actual teaching experience.
He will always be famous to the Juniors for his, "I was
goin' to say — " in education class. He never failed to
make some worthwhile contributions to class discussion.
We're glad you came to Montclair, Mr. Marzulli, and we
hope you've enjoyed knowing us as we've enjoyed know-
ADELAIDE B. McGUINNESS
In her Junior year, Lolly was secretary of the Italian
Club and president of Omicron Kappa Gamma. In her
Senior year she was vice-president of the Contemporary
Club and secretary-treasurer of the Philosophy Club, to
say nothing of being a member of Clio, the League of
Women Voters, and various social committees. Just
imagine the huge amount of time she had on her hands.
Need we offer any further proof of this young lady's
popularity and success?
VIOLA K. MECH
When we look into Viola's assets and liabilities we
decide that her "book value" is very high. She has been
an active member of the Contemporary Club, Clio, the
Philosophy Club, the Italian Club, the League of Women
Voters, and the Psychology Club. Speaking of well
integrated personalities! If a college career is any predic-
tion of what will follow, we feel inclined to promise Viola
that her dreams will be sure to come true.
A cheer leader has to have a big heart, but Meg has
even a bigger heart than the most big-hearted cheer
leader. It isn't just a last minute eulogy when we say
that we know we'll miss him. Our loss, however, is some
high school's gain. The serious side of Meg seems to be
devoted to mathematics and science. And then he has
social tendencies; he likes Proms. What we're trying to
say is that he's versatile.
What a perfect Mary you made in "Her Step Hus-
band," and what a darling Puck in "Robinhood," to say
nothing of your excellent portrayal of "Cinderella
Married!" But Mim's entire life isn't taken up by dra-
matic performances, as one might be led to believe. She
also finds time to be Alumni editor of the Pelican, sec-
retary of Aldornia, and a member of Kappa Delta Pi.
Yes, I guess she is a well-rounded girl.
VERA A. MICHEL
Vera's one of the hardest working co-eds at M.S.T.C.
She always has her term papers finished months ahead of
time, and she has always done more work than was re-
quired. She's small, blonde, and friendly, and every one
likes her despite her superabundance of intellect. She is a
charter member of Aldornia and has many outside inter-
ests, including a certain young man interested in aviation.
Haven't you noticed Vee in the library busily reading
"aviation?" She's gone air-minded!
RICHARD W. MILLER
Little, but oh my! Can he dance, can he sing, can he
play tennis, can he do math? You'd be surprised! The
Math Club is perfectly satisfied with its president. We'd
overlook much of Dicky if we slighted his sense of humor.
This quality among others makes him "a boon and witty
companion." Yes, Dicky is an indispensable part of life
at M.S.T.C. "What'll we do" when he's gone? Have you
a younger brother somewhat like you, Dicky, and may
we have him?
JOSEPH D. MINISI
Someone has made the apt remark that Uttle men do
big things. No one knew quite what a big thing Joe
Minisi was doing when he originated or founded the
ItaUan Club. His interests during office hours are philos-
ophy, history, and geography. He can elaborate at
length on the teaching proficiency of Mr. Sloan and is
not at all averse to Mr. Milstead. May you profit by
those noble examples, Joe!
LUCILLE P. NELSON
Pert and neat, that's Lu. To find something which is
more substantial than Lu, I guess we'd have to go to the
great pyramid itself. And as to her ability in leadership,
just recall the successful year of 1931 which Clio enjoyed
under her careful supervision as president. Lu is ever a
friend to one and all. Lu may be tiny, but oh, my, does
she know her history! Well, we'd be willing to bet on her
any day of the week.
Muriel is always friendly but never lets pleasure inter-
fere with her work. In her, one finds the personality and
ability of the ideal teacher. Her interests here have been
centered chiefly in the psychology department where she
has done most commendable work. Muriel is an ideal
representative of the fine material which M.S.T.C. wishes
to prodace. We visualize her solving the manifold prob-
lems of countless New Jersey adolescents. We think that
they're almost fortunate in having problems to bring
ELEANORE L. NIXON
Eleanore possesses a huge amount of that quality that
is most essential to a teacher — sincerity. She is a splendid
student, and is especially interested in social studies.
Can't you just imagine her standing up in front of a class
and persuading her pupils to appreciate the accomplish-
ments of the past in terms of the present? We know you
can do it, too. El. Around school there is a particular
combination to which Eleanore belongs. She is half of the
"Al" is the funny-bone of the science department. She
likes to laugh and dance, dance and laugh, and then when
it becomes absolutely necessary, study. She is a member
of the Science Club, and sings in the Women's Glee Club.
Not only is the college going to miss this young lady, but
she is leaving a gap in the dormitory life at Chapin. It
seems almost impossible to imagine this dorm without
Another purple-edged toga denotes a senatorship. An
earnest student of history and literature has earned these
laurels in token of his broad interests in all that is cultural.
He is the sort who speaks when, and only when, he has
something to say. And he has something to say only when
the saying of it will ultimately do someone good. Rohwec
calls him one of its plenipotentiaries and makes him
"ambassador" to Washington — along with Lester De-
Beer. He's one of our finest ambassadors to the teaching
ANGELA M. PALMERA
We all wonder how she can be late for class whenever
she pleases, and get away with it. Perhaps she does
enough math at home to miss a little in school. Her
second choice in studies is English. This bears witness to
the fact that she's just one more versatile Senior who can
find interest and show achievement in anything from the
most exact science to the most imaginative literature. She
is a member of the Mathematics and Italian Clubs.
ARLENE JANE PAULSON
Surely we can attribute some of the excellence of the
college choir to Janie's fine soprano. Janie just radiates
good-nature all over the place. She believes there is truth
in the saying that nothing is worth doing which is not
worth doing well, and her work is evidence of this fact.
She tackles everything with a vigor and conscientiousness
that is admirable and comes out on top with banners
flying and a song on her lips.
ELEANOR W. PEDERSEN
Some quiet people do all the mightiest things. For a
considerable time, Eleanor has helped make the Pelican
more worth while by seeing to it that everything which
was printed was strictly O. K. The staff could tell us
much of her capability. Eleanor is dependability per-
sonified. To work with her is a luxury for any one. It is
no trouble for us to visualize her as just one more winner
in the teaching game. We hope you'll like it, Eleanor.
GERTRUDE A. PELL
When one has known Trudy long enough, he discovers
that she is from Netcong, has a brother at Albright, likes
athletics, English, debating, and stealing the march on
all of us. She gets some inside information on how teach-
ing affects one new in the profession before she begins her
teaching. We think that her own ability plus the informa-
tion derived from the source mentioned should prove
very advantageous to Trudy. It's very nice to have some-
body point out your teaching problems and their solution
ahead of time — but when it's Bob, it's very nice.
MARY B. PETRUSKA
If membership in clubs is any indication of a co-
operative school spirit, Mary's reputation as a super-
active college student is assured. The long list of clubs to
which she belongs includes the Philosophy, Italian, Com-
muters, and Contemporary Clubs, Clio, and the League
of Women Voters. Such a tireless interest as Mary has
shown in all the activities about the college is enviable
and rather overwhelming. Really, Mary, we are all going
to miss you, and the various clubs will have a difficult
time trying to find some one to replace you.
RUTH E. PILGER
Ruth is one of those quiet individuals who are well
worth becoming acquainted with. Her mind works very
logically. Does that give you a clue as to her special field?
Right! she's a math student. Quite naturally, she's an
active member of the Math Club. Of course, Ruth has
other interests in academic work — but she also has an
outside interest! We'll give you a clue and then let you
draw your own conclusions — she likes New York for
JENNIE I. POTAS
A quiet, gentle soul you say. Have you ever seen her in
a dormitory session, or doing one of her imitations of
Mickey Mouse? We'll say she's a worthy member of our
group — and a very intelligent one. She'll help you out of
a scrape, too, that is, if she's washing stockings. Jennie
has earned our approbation not only in the dorm, where
we all know her so well, but also in the classroom, where
what she does is sure to be done well and interestingly.
MARY C. POWER
Mary is another girl with personality. Quiet and un-
assuming but very intelligent and, oh, so nice. Yes sir,
that's true, and we have lots of proof of it, too. But who
needs proof? Mary's interests are scientific and aesthetic
— nice combination. It certainly should produce a well-
balanced system. What do you think? We might let you
in on a secret. Mary has a mania for collecting bugs that
are to be found in the brooks around Little Falls. Guess
this is evidence of her scientific nature!
Marie seems to be the walking symbol of the Italian
Club, being its president and one of its chief supporters
and enthusiasts. Among her other interests are English,
the Philosophy Club, and Dramatics. Her friends say
that she can be depended upon to do a thing whole-
heartedly and to do it well. What can we say more
complimentary than this when it is deserved?
WILLIAM E. PRICE
What does it matter how large one's understandings
are if he's a Princeton grad? Besides, we all take un-
consciously to this big he-man from Princeton, who is
loyal and sensible enough to admit that he'd rather see a
Montclair football game than one of Princeton's. Science
is his strong point, with math as a tangent. We're sorry
that he could spend only one year with us, but our con-
solation is that we appreciated him!
Scene: Outside living room of Chapin.
Time: Night of any formal affair.
Curtain rises and a couple, breath-taking in their
terpsichorean art, glide into view of the audience. Im-
mediately, they become the center of attraction for all
evening. Who are they? — why Gen Quinn, the smoothest
dancer at Montclair, and one of her many men. Her
activities at Montclair include acting; being athletic, at
times; being a member of the Math Club and the League
of Women Voters; and enjoying the reputation of being
one of the best liked girls at Montclair.
Sylvia is one of our scientifically minded students.
When we tell you she is a math major and a science
minor, we're sure you'll agree with our first statement.
Of course, she belongs to the two clubs that further the
interest in the subjects of her choice. Sylvia is a student
in the true sense of the word. Everything she tackles, she
masters. She is quiet, capable, and efficient. And an
interesting personal note — she is most fond of Italian
Just a dark-eyed, dark-haired, curly-headed English
major from Hoboken. The first four characteristics are
laudable, but we won't go into the last. Lest you get the
wrong opinion of this young lady, perhaps we had better
add that she's a real faculty joy. She treats her books as
they should be treated and sets a really fine example to
those ne'er-do-well term's-end rushers. She deserves to be
commended for her scholarly habits.
LORNA E. REID
Hail the smock, beret, and palette! We have here the
art editor of La Campanilla. Just glance through the
book; doesn't she deserve credit? Besides the artist, we
have an honor student in history who figures prominently
in Rohwec. We're glad you're a history student; you'll
have plenty of opportunity to exercise your talents.
Lorna knows her books, too, and surely competency in
library work is an asset to any prospective teacher. Kers
is truly a liberal education.
MARIE J. REILLY
Would you like to know someone who has Irish eyes,
expressive eyebrows, and a happy countenance; one who
is jolly, sincere, humorous, and a dandy all-round pal?
Meet Marie — the happy combination of all that's work,
and all that's fun. She's a very capable girl — this child!
Marie in the clouds is a Marie to startle all by her clever
wit and vivacity; Marie in the depths is a fascinating
MAY C. RENNERT
Another feminine invader of that manly realm of
mathematics and science. Math comes first with her —
and then science. Her studious habits and scholarly
earnestness have placed her high in the esteem of both
her student acquaintances and the faculty members. The
general public has one idea of the teacher type; we have
another and very different one. May is our idea of what
a teaching type should be and is coming to be.
Rice must be an exceptional person. Ke has won favor
among men and girls, faculty and student body, with foot-
ball coach and classroom professor. Could he possibly win
more? His achievements in music, scholarship, and
athletics have won him the esteem of the entire college.
Even the Pelican personals have pointed out his ex-
ceptional popularity, calling Rice a versatile music
teacher, athlete, student, and cavalier. Look out for
Rice — he's the man.
RUTH C. RODGERS
Miss Rodgers is that peppy little Irish girl who went
all the way to Europe last year. She is the secretary of
the Senior class, a member of the Dramatic Club, and a
live participant in our social events. We can't think of a
single function that she has ever missed. Her talents run
toward art, dancing, and talking — being exceedingh-
proficient in the latter. More power to you, Ruthie!
Have you ever heard Roselle laugh? She has the most
contagious giggle we've ever heard! And by the way, if a
few years hence you hear of Dr. Roemer, the famous
psychologist, you can be assured that it is your former
classmate. Roselle is an English major, but the giving of
intelligence tests certainly takes a large proportion of her
time. And just another interesting detail — there's a
certain person that makes Columbia a rather fascinating
place! We're interested, Roselle.
SUSAN W. RUBIN
Although she's an eager student of the past (history
and Latin) she's an ardent rooter for the "Y." Is it
swimming, or just athletics in general that interests you.
Sue? We know that she has proved a decided asset to the
college and have every reason to believe that in Union,
where she did her practice-teaching, the highest possible
opinion of her ability is entertained. What higher recom-
mendation could anyone desire? Congratulations, Sue!
EDWARD J. RUTAN
The touchdown man! And can he make the touch-
downs! Ask Wagner! But Ed doesn't excel at football
alone. He's greatly in demand at M.S.T.C. dances and
certainly contributes much that is valuable to any class
of which he is a member. All that we can wish for him is
that in the coming years he may make as many figurative
touchdowns in all that he attempts as he has made literal
touchdowns for the college which is proud of him.
ANN E. SATTENSTEIN
We like the girls who come from Lodi ! Ann just strength-
ened our already firmly established liking in that direc-
tion. Her interest in English, the classics and Kappa
Delta Pi cast much light on her tastes, both as a student
and as a prospective teacher. If you want to get her
friends' attitude toward Ann, just go into her home town,
where she's generally adored. In describing Ann, we find
it hard to express our opinions. We can just say there's
something about her. . .
EDWARD T. SAYLES
We just haven't space to enumerate his accomplish-
ments. But we must mention that during his career here
he has held two of the four student council offices. As
Scrubby in "Outward Bound," he was perfect. Then, of
course, he's a member of the Senate, and Kappa Delta Pi.
In every way, Ed has contributed to what we hope to
make our college. By doing what he has done for it, he
has helped make it a place where those will come who are
able to carry on his good work.
Helen seems to have gone ahead of many of us by leaps
and bounds. Her superlative work as a German student
entitled her to a year of study abroad at the University
of Bonn during the season of 1930-1931. She distinguished
herself not only there but also here in the German and
Classical Clubs, as a committee chairman for the World
Fair, and in dramatic activities. And, as we might expect,
a person of such accomplishments and achievements has
aspired to, deserved, and attained, a membership in Kappa
Saul has been one of our most prominent figures within
the college halls and on the campus. Can it be true that
he is, as it has been said, the suppressed desire of 9 10 of
Montclair's co-eds? Saul has distinguished himself as
president of his class in Junior year, as Henry in 'Out-
ward Bound," as a member of Rohwec and Agora, and
as a whizz-bang basketball player. Could such varied
interests yield anything else but the Saul Scherer of
IRVING L. SKID
The man with the school-girl complexion that doesn't
wear off. Irving has no trouble dropping the ball into the
basket. Part of it may be luck, but much of it is his
height. And speaking of luck, we hear that he is proficient
in a certain card game, which has always been popular
among men. Upon his graduation, the Science and
Mathematics Clubs will miss this student, as will the
Pelican. A many sided man, he wears his moods well.
IRA A. SHAMPANSKY
Ira is one of the silent men of the class who says little
and does much. He is one of the hardest working Seniors
in our midst, and takes life seriously — with a capital
"S." He is treasurer of the Senior class, and a member of
Rohwec, and Agora. Then there's his secret passion (not
so secret), and that's all we dare say on that subject!
Let's give this little boy a big hand!
We wonder what La Campanilla could have done
without Max. He's editor, you know. And for that matter,
what would M.S.T.C. have done without this member
of Kappa Delta Pi, past president of Aldornia, and other
organizations in which membership denotes interest in
extra-curricular activity? After perusing the Montclair
Quarterly we find that Max has proved an invaluable
contributor to that magazine. May he be as successful
in proving himself as valuable to the world as he has
been to us. i-
EMILY G. SHAW
If you happen to hear a gurgling giggle that runs up
the scale, that's Shaw. Four years of college haven't
spoiled her easy disposition and her fine sense of humor.
No matter what comes her way, Shaw finds this world a
good old world after all. Such optimism is enviable. By
the way, have you ever been to Chapin or school dances
when Shaw wasn't there with bells on? We haven't
either, because, you see, Shaw's vivacious spirit is at its
best on the dance floor.
FRANK J. SINGER
The enthusiasm of the child plus the intellect of the
man should give us much of the poet. Any one who knows
Frank has witnessed his acute powers of active observa-
tion. If the most intelligent man in society makes the
most reactions, Frank's responses speak well for his
intelligence. Nor are his casual observations amassed for
the mere sake of hoarding material. The intellect which
reckons with them assimilates that which makes for keen
reasoning, personal idealizing, and the lofty philosophy
of one who sees deeply.
There's something about this student that makes us
think we really should call him Mr. Smith, but, then,
there's also something about him which makes us call
him Tim. Perhaps, it's his friendly manner which has
already made him known to Montclair in general. And
may we maliciously ask how many girls would like to get
the person who started the rumor that Tim was a married
man? Tim has been here only a year, having done his
previous collegiate work at Swarthmore. Already we can
say of him — he's a pal.
DCRDTHY M. SOCOFSKY
Anyone must hand it to a girl whose every freckle
merely enhances her beauty, accents her warm brown
eyes and her lovely auburn curls. Distance doesn't lend
enchantment to the view; the nearer we are and the more
we know Dot, the better we like her. She's among the
assets of the English classes, the Debate Club, and
Montclair in general. She's an authority on Dutch
Treats, too! But with all her assets lined up before us,
we've about decided that she wouldn't have to pay her
VIRGINIA H. SOHN
There was a time not so remote, as time goes, when
Virginia was all astronomy — at least, she was interested
in the stars. Perhaps it was purely scientific, but may we
add that we have our doubts about that. You know, she's
a science major; one more of those brilliant people from
Bayonne, people who are simply up here to give the rest
of us inferiority complexes. Oh well ! — be a good teacher
Jinny and don't be too harsh with the youngsters if they
are up in the clouds occasionally.
ISABEL D. STEPHENS
This Senior knows how to make two men vie for her
attention. We hope that she will be as successful in
making two school superintendents vie for her services.
Surely, her record here, both socially and scholastically,
would warrant such extreme good fortune. We are sure
that the school where she teaches will be more than
satisfied with her. Her interest in children and in her
work seems to guarantee her this satisfaction even in
advance of her need for it.
MARIE C. STRUKEL
There is a certain charm and stability about Marie.
She doesn't seem to dash madly about like the rest of us.
While everyone else is busy speeding nowhere in partic-
ular, Marie is busy accomplishing things, but she always
has time to take part in whatever fun is going on around
her. She is a mixture of cleverness, determination, re-
serve, and good taste.
EDITH M. TEPPERMAN
Teppie really isn't a bad sort when one gets to know
her. In fact, she has some splendid ideas, but her dread-
ful seriousness has often scared us away. We will say
this, however, — Edith has stood up under our teasing and
proved herself a good sport. Her enthusiasm for debating,
modern poetry, Ben Franklin, journalism, and various
other phases of scholastic activity demonstrates her
rareness. Now and then she's accused of having temper-
ament, but, after all, what's a little temperament now
WILLIAM J. THOMAS
Here comes another one of those people who keep
proving that Paterson's not so bad. We think that the
No. 1 which Bill wears on the back of his scarlet football
jersey must be just as significant in his various other
fields of endeavor. Surely, a figurative No. 1 must hover
about him to assure his success and popularity among the
Pelican staff members, the student body at large, the
faculty, and the girls who like to make note books or to
MILDRED S. THOMPSON
A friend to one and a friend to all is Millie. She never
can decide how to wear her hair and, as a result, usually
has it growing. Her interests are varied — there's the
Choir, Philosophy Club, Contemporary Club, Math Club,
German Club, and Dramatic Club. Then, too, there are
athletics and flying. Altogether she's a mighty interesting
pal. With her zest, sparkle, and vivacity she should be a
VIRGINIA S. TODD
Speaking of commanding presence! Weil, now, Vir-
ginia is the answer to that problem. Spike is often
referred to the morning after as the most striking girl at
the dance, and we can see why! Mathematics is her
major, geography her minor, but such vital statistics
don't shed much light on the fact that she had to go all
the way to Bermuda to find that the world's a small
place after all. Ask her why she seemed to have put on
so much weight when she returned.
EDNA L. TOTTEN
Totty — they call her the girl with the million dollar
smile and — the million dollar personality. She can be
house chairman of Eddie Russ, put a dance over in fine
style (even hypnotize an orchestra into an inspired per-
formance), dispose of the usual amount of lessons, and
yet throw up everything to listen to Bing Crosby. And
if you've never heard her croon jazz, you can't understand
why Russ is downright gloomy these days.
LILLIAN S. TOWNSEND
The lady who refuses to lead a common ordinary
existence. She bangs herself into auto accidents and gets
a vacation from school — but lo and behold, she's ready
to graduate with the rest of us when June rolls around.
Lillian went to Summer School. She has recorded it as a
pleasant experience. We don't know why, but then what
is there to stop us from guessing? Poise, dignity, and
reserve carry her through any situation. She belongs to
the League of Women Voters.
O rare phenomenon! — a fellow who does more than is
required to get that necessary "drag." He isn't just the
hard-working man; he plays considerably. Have you
ever recognized him in a Xmas play, in spite of his
costume? They tell us, too, that he wields a wicked rifle;
is a member of that exclusive organization, the Chess and
Checkers Club; sings in the Glee Club and is an active
member of the Philosophy Club. He should be a success
— he's got the materials.
Jinny doesn't resemble a student of antiques — but
then, she's a Latin major. (There, there, Jinny, we know
it's a very fine language). But what's more, we know
that her leisure seems not to depend on the past. One of
Jinny's enviable propensities is ingenious excuse making.
She does it with a style all her own.
A lady of winsome helplessness, whose Montclair
existence consists of membership to the French Club and
Dramatic Club, whose contacts elsewhere lead her to
various places, such as West Point, Lafayette, and
France, where she spent a year as a French Exchange
HELEN VAN EPS
Try as you may, you'll never be able to out-talk "the
master mind." She has a line long enough to land the
biggest fish you ever heard of. Her ceaseless chatter
doesn't seem to affect her grades, though, and it does put
her in line as a success. Van Eps gets good marks, and,
as a conversationalist, she is a worthy successor to the
noble Sam Johnson. She takes her chosen occupation
very seriously. What more can you say of any pro-
ISABEL M. VAN RIPER
Isabel is an institution in Chapin Hall. We wonder
what they'll use to take her place next year? That sleek
red head, those warm brown eyes, and entrancing
freckles make up a distinctive part of our campus life.
While speaking of studies, we may add that this maid is
another of the literati, with varied interests on the side.
Isabel's understanding is as big as all out-of-doors.
ESTHER V. VICARI
Strange that so many people like Latin, say we. Per-
haps, (two perhapses) it's Dr. Freeman! Anyway, if
Esther admires Dr. Freeman, we hope that she's ab-
sorbing all his commendable teaching habits. Esther is
making a specialty of Latin and English here, and in
doing so, is putting Harrison on the map. The dorm
missed her when she left this year, and so we're afraid
that we must predict that the college will have a difficult
time trying to fill the vacancy her departure will make.
JOHN W. VOGEL
Enter John W. Jr. — that shadowy member of the
Senior class. J. W. V. is an historian who has held the
presidency of Rohwec, membership in the College Choir,
and was this year elected to the Kappa Delta Pi. Sshh —
he has a secret desire — can you guess what it is? Lots of
luck, Johnnie! Did you know that Mr. Vogel has the
jump on most of us? Oh, my, yes! He has had quite some
practice in proposing — to a young lady! How does it
agree with you, Johnnie?
LILLIAN J. VOGES
We thank whatever powers that be for sending Lil to
us from Trenton. She has added Hfe and looks and
laughter to M.S.T.C. Of course we sympathize with
Trenton because, realizing what we have gained, we can
appreciate her loss. As a student, as president of the
German Club in her Junior year, as an outstanding
basketball and hockey enthusiast, as a member of Kappa
Delta Pi, and as a friend, Lil has proved her mettle in
ability and sportsmanship. We're cheering for you, Lil!
EUGENIA E. WACHAUF
Jean will go down in the history of M.S.T.C. as the
young lady who never failed to give one of the outstand-
ing reports of the term in English classes. They were just
one of the indications of the high scholastic ability that
resulted in her membership in Aldornia. We'll wager that
when she gets out in the field, Jean will be one of Mont-
clair's most efficient and satisfactory representatives.
Jean spent two years in Newark — but, my, aren't we
glad she came to us if only for two years.
LYDIA C. WAITE
There isn't anything half so sweet as Bibs — sleepy. And
when she's awake — well — she makes up for lost time. We
think, judging by how she passes the time (day time), of
course, that she's God's gift to co-education. But don't
be mistaken and don't be misled. We don't mean to
imply that Bibs is primarily frivolous. Under the whole-
some good cheer, there is a wealth of real capability —
we'd bank on Bibs any day. Ask Callie if that isn't so!
\n ^^ III
NORMAN S. WEIR
Andherewe have one of the main props of the M.S.T.C.
football team. Norman not only has great interest in
sports of all kinds but he had great interest in literature
for awhile, too, as seen in his prolonged concern for the
writer of a famous diary! The class will remember Nor-
man as one who not only did an unusual amount of
kidding but also took his own share with a smile. Then,
of course, he's a member of the Senate!
RUTH D. WHETHAM
Ruth likes Montclair but she loves — . Nevertheless,
she always has her work done. To the amazement of all,
she usually has her last week's reading finished. Well, it
must be a high I.Q. Ruth has recently taken to dorm life,
and it seems to be agreeing with her. Ruth, we'd just like
to know how you can have so many outside interests and
yet keep up to date even in your reading. You must have
a system. Won't you tell us the secret?
Did someone ask where that giggle came from? Why,
surely. It was Betty! And have you ever heard her play
the piano? Oh yes — she is really quite musical — don't
know of a single music course given that Bets hasn't
been there with bells on. And say — have you ever seen
this young lady teach? Well, we shall never forget the
English lesson she taught in the Demonstration School!
The College Glee Club and the Psychology Club keep
Betty fairly busy in the extra-curricular field.
RUTH B. WILDEBUSH
Ruth is the good looking girl with the Pepsodent smile
who is usually seen with Mary and Miriam. She likes to
be remote in class. She usually sits by the window in the
back. Recites? Oh yes, brilliantly. Ruth's major field is
English with psychology a close second. Does she know
her Binet tests — well, just ask her — maybe she does!
And just so you won't forget in the days to come when
you look at Ruth's picture — remember, her beauty was
EDNA G. WILSON
Eddie is a member of the Girls' A. A. Council. Do you
know why? — She just loves her sports. You should see
the corking game of tennis she plays. Then too, she has a
special interest in Cornell's football team. Besides being
athletic, Eddie dances divinely. English seems to be her
favorite study with history ranking second; your first
term of economics was humorous, enjoyable, and in-
structive (?) wasn't it Eddie? And we might just mention
that her eighth graders think she is quite "the" teacher.
ANNA M. WOLF
Why are people turning around? Oh, just to steal a
glance at the most dramatic conversationalist in Eddie
Russ in action. And does she go dramatic when Abner
comes to visit her at night! Abner, the "wee, sleekit,
cowerin, tim'rous beastie" strikes terror in Ann's flutter-
ing heart everytime! However, even the threats of a visit
from Abner will not prevent Ann from staying over the
week-ends, which she has learned to enjoy so much in
her Senior year. Now, of course, Ann, we don't want to
be personal, but what sudden fascination does Montclair
hold over week-ends?
ELIZABETH C. WOOD
One needs only the shortest space of time to recognize
Betty's unusual personal qualities, her wide knowledge,
and her delightful versatility — in science, politics, music,
and art, for instance. Everyone knows this Kappa Delta
Pi girl not only as a willing and tireless worker, but as a
dependable and sincere friend. As to her versatility —
especially in musical art — just ask "Brothah Wood,"
herself, about "The Dying Nun." Betty, we think you
have all the attributes necessary for a good teacher.
Dottie is a member of a foursome consisting of the
two Kolters, Helen Johnson, and herself. Throughout
four years of college life this group has been inseparable.
Yes, there's a common interest — science. This constitutes
Dottie's first choice. Of course she has a second choice
that keeps her busy too — English. Dottie has the keenest
sense of humor imaginable. You just never see her unless
she's smiling about something, and when she smiles her
eyes just sparkle.
ELIZA M. YANNACCONE
Perhaps the most noticeable characteristic of Eliza is
her distinctive taste. Unlooked for talents crop out in her
themes and term papers. Her life is rich because she has
consciously chosen to make it so. Her versatility is not
the usual smattering type; it is something cultivated
with intimate care.
This eager student of literature is another of our
"older and wiser" members of the student body. We like
them among us to tell us the tactics of the battlefield and
to lend a cosmopolitan air to our group. Their presence
aids the blending of youth and experience into a happy
combination, which engenders a fine attitude for future
teachers. Miss Daudt affects no superiority because of
experience; rather she is as youthful, as enthusiastic as
the youngest of us. We are the better for her year with us.
Lee is a small but willing worker. History, or rather,
the Social Studies, is the field upon which she is going to
enlighten students in the high schools. We shall expect
in the near future to see her teaching the unit-fusion in
the high schools of the state. Lena has determination, if
anyone has. She was in an automobile accident the first
of the year. Now, all her work is made up, and her
graduation hasn't been postponed. That shows a de-
(Mrs.) JEANNE FISH
Certainly, Mrs. Fish isn't disciplining herself or credit-
hunting when she chooses to do her studying at M.S.T.C.
Her eagerness for worthwhile instruction is prompted by
an enthusiasm unsurpassed by the most knowledge-
hungry Freshman. When it comes to hunting supple-
mentary material to make her courses interesting, Mrs.
Fish has a peculiar propensity.
Upon Seeing a Man Looking at the Sky
See him, with his head thrown back,
And his eyes wide, and open, and clear with light;
Behold the red corolla of his lips,
And the proud column of his neck; the breadth of his shoulders;
The beauty of his strong, flexible body.
And the firmness of his feet pressing into yielding soil.
Behold this bearer of burdens, this carrier of crosses;
This tireless seeker after light;
This struggler up dawn-drenched precipices;
This wanderer by the white rocks and the sea;
This hearer of thunder tumultuous in the sky.
Behold him — quenchless, inextinguishable.

The Student Council
Although the membership of the 1931-1932 Student Council was considerably reduced
from the membership of previous years, it has efficiently carried out its program under the
able leadership of its president, Beatrice Roseberry.
The Council, being the executive board of an organization which embraces the entire
student body, is necessarily a representative group. It consists this year of the four officers,
four class presidents, representatives at large elected by each class, and the ex-president
of the Council, totaling in all, seventeen.
Everyone benefits from the activities of the Student Council, for its purpose as set
forth in the constitution, is — "to plan, develop, and control a well-organized community."
It is toward this end that the Council gives financial backing to clubs, presents interesting
and worthwhile assembly programs, and plans social events in which everyone may take
part. It is truly a strong instrument in making Montclair a lively community.
The officers for 1931-1932 are: president, Beatrice Roseberry; vice-president, Eleanor
Gorham; secretary, Alice Dunne; and treasurer, Ruth Noll. Miss Sperle and Dean Finley
are faculty advisers.
Agora, discussion society, was founded at Montclair State Teachers College in June,
1929. The society has for its purpose student welfare and the discussion of problems,
philosophical, educational, religious, and political.
The membership of the society is limited to eighteen men, six from each of the three
upper classes. Personality, leadership, scholarship, service, and good fellowship are the
qualities governing the selection of these men. Agora endeavors to develop the fine quali-
ties found in its members.
The society has recruited several deputation teams whose purpose is to address as-
semblies of New Jersey High Schools on the aims, objectives, and activities of Montclair
State Teachers College. Debates on timely topics are sponsored from time to time. At
least once a year, a speaker of note, under the auspices of Agora, addresses the student
body on some phase of college life and activity.
That the success of the society is assured is evidenced by the fact that it is functioning
in harmony and is achieving the purposes for which it was founded. The officers for 1931-
1932 included: president, Robert Greenwald; vice-president, William Hunt; secretary,
Howard Kling; treasurer, Harley Scott.
Aldornia, the honorary Enghsh society of the college, was organized in the spring of
1929, by those achieving excellence in the field of English. At the time of its founding,
there were twenty-five members, of whom eighteen were students, and seven, the Faculty
of the department.
The aims of Aldornia are: to promote culture in its broadest and best sense, to increase
literary ability and knowledge, to further sociability, and to be an influence for the better
literary and cultural background of the student body.
At the monthly meetings, programs involving much research were presented and were
followed with general discussion by the Aldornians. To fulfil its aims, and to meet the
desires and needs of its members, Aldornia chose for its unit of study this year the short
story as represented in the various nations of the world.
The officers for 1931-1932 were: president, Adeline Mair; vice-president, Vera Michel;
secretary, Mildred Mehrtens; treasurer, Eunice Helme; and chairman of the program
committee, Louise Johnson.
In January, 1931, a new honorary society was introduced to Montclair State Teachers
College. Aphesteon was organized through the efforts of Professors John C. Stone and
Virgil S. Mallory of the Mathematics Department.
The purpose of this society is to provide an outlet for interest in advanced mathematics,
and to encourage the most capable students to do extended individual research work in
the field. The undergraduate membership is limited to twenty students, majoring in
mathematics, whose high standing in that subject meets with the requirements for mem-
bership in the club. At present, there are on roll eleven students — six Seniors and five
Juniors. Of the Seniors five are charter members: Sarah Bogert, Lucille Drews, Dorothy
Holman, Eleanor Dooley, and Helen Anderson.
It is the custom of Aphesteon to award two prizes and an honorable mention to the
three graduating members of the society who have obtained the highest scholarship in
mathematics during the four-year course.
Discussion of mathematical problems and talks by various members of the club and by
well-known authorities on mathematical topics are the order of the meetings, which have
attained a high degree of interest. The members, because of their small number, have
become well acquainted with one another and with the Faculty of the Mathematics
Department — a fact which always contributes to the success of a new venture.
The officers of Aphesteon for 1931-1932 are: president, Dorothy Holman; secretary,
Eleanor Hagen; executive committee, Sarah Bogert and Dora Schmid.
Le Cercle Francais
The purpose of the Cercle Francais is to strengthen the bond of friendship between
America and France by bringing before its members as much of the culture of France as
possible. The afternoons of club meetings are spent in becoming acquainted with the
wealth of art and literature that is to be found in France. It is customary for the Mont-
clair exchange students to address the club during the year and to contribute what they
have learned about the French people and their culture. The visiting student from France
also speaks before the club. Talks by members of the Faculty and others contribute to the
popularity of the club.
Two plays were presented this year. The Freshman class dramatized the story of
Jeanne d'Arc, and the Sophomores enacted one of Moliere's comedies, ' Les Precieuses
Any student of the college who is actively interested in French is invited to join the
Cercle Francais. Meetings are held the third Wednesday of every month. Members are
asked to speak only French at all meetings in order that the most benefit may be derived
from these opportunities of using the French language in conversation.
The officers elected for the year 1931-1932 were: president, Stella Gatti; vice-president,
Julie de Meyer; secretary, Renee Zaya; vice-secretary, Mathilda Savage; treasurer,
Carmelita Geraldi. These officers, together with two representatives from each French
class, form the Cabinet which plans programs and makes the regulations for the club with
the advice of Mile. Poreau and Monsieur Charliat.
The Classical Club
The Classical Club is one of the oldest on the campus, having been organized in 1927,
under the supervision of Miss Ethel Littlefield. This year Greek as well as Latin students
were admitted. The enrollment of fifty-three members for 1931-1932 is larger than it has
ever been — a fact which indicates an active interest in the classics at Montclair.
The club's letters -ZK, which stand for the Greek words meaning "enthusiastic seekers
for the beautiful," express its aim. The purpose of the organization is to create a love for
the classics, as well as to instruct all its members in the organization and conduct of High
School Latin Clubs. Originality and an ambition to do something worthwhile and different
are the ends toward which the whole club is striving.
During the year 1931-1932 a new project was presented. It was the Saturnalian festival
in which all members took part. The meeting, at which it was presented was planned to
resemble this old Roman custom as much as possible in respect to entertainment and
refreshments. The club also gave at East Side High School, Paterson, and at one of its
own meetings, the "Aulularia" of Plautus in English. One of the club members had skil-
fully adapted it for the purpose, supplying the parts missing from the original play.
The officers for the year were: Norma Thompson, president; Muriel BurreJl, vice-presi-
dent; Frances Gail, secretary; and Anne Loeffler, treasurer.
"Clio," whose name. Muse of History, indicates its major interest, has grown very
rapidly in the few years of its existence at Montclair. The enthusiastic interest manifested
by students majoring in this field has resulted in a membership many times its original
Clio's purpose is chiefly the study of problems both ancient and modern, which arise
out of the study of history.
Besides the speakers and many interesting discussions by the members themselves,
Clio held a bridge this year, the proceeds of which were given for the benefit of the un-
The program this year has centered primarily about discussions of books and countries
in which the members are interested, supplemented occasionally by speakers. Thus, a
valuable cultural background, which cannot be completely achieved in class because of
limited time, is added to each individual's equipment.
Membership is limited to Social Studies Majors. New members are admitted in the
spring term of every year. In order to keep each member vitally interested in its meetings,
the rule has always been followed that two consecutive absences are followed by loss
Officers of Clio for the year 1931-1932 are: president, Ruth McAuley; vice-president,
Jeanette Zwetchkenbaum; secretary, Cecile Sterli; treasurer, Louise Palmateer. Miss
Florence Strykker has given her support and able assistance to the club.
In the spring of 1931, a new organization appeared in the roster of clubs at Montclair.
It was the Ccmmuters Club composed, as its name implies, of all the ccmmuters in the
The purpose of the club is to provide social activities throughout the school year for the
commuters. Before the club was formally organized, two informal parties, which were
very successful and proved that the desire and need for such an organization was evident,
The first social get-together, in October, was in the form of an afternoon dance. Novelty
entertainment was provided by some of the college students. Under the auspices of the
club, dancing was held every noon-hour in the college gymnasium. This entertainment
permitted the members to become better acquainted and provided recreation between
The organization planned and presented very successfully a dance and a bridge party
in the spring. From the indications of success in the past, it feels that under the able
guidance of Mrs. Maude L. Carter, the faculty adviser, the club may look forward to a
splendid and profitable future.
The officers for 1931-1932 are: president, Harriet Miller; vice-president, Edna Wilson;
treasurer, John McLean; and secretary, Ella Curren.
The Contemporary Club
The Contemporary Club, organized for the purpose of arousing interest in modern
subjects, began its year with an influx of new members. This year, it speciahzed in pro-
grams of student participation. In having individual members give reports the program
committee encouraged other members to contribute more readily.
During the course of the school day's lectures, there is often little chance to discuss
freely contemporary events with classmates. By using an informal kind of program for
the club, there is more opportunity to become acquainted with one another and, to hear
talks and discussions concerning topics on which ideas have been formed but for which
there is no medium of expression. The program encompasses a variety of subjects so that
each one has a chance to give the latest material in his field. The socialized atmosphere of
the meetings has become a great asset.
The club has the added attraction of being the oldest in the school, dating back to the
days of the Normal School, 1925. It became a College Club in 1927. Throughout these
years, the members have shown a vital concern in contemporary events.
The officers for the year of 1931-1932 were: president, Doris Powers; vice-president,
Adelaide McGuinness ; secretary, Anna Selling: treasurer, Rita O'Brien.
The good start which this organization made last year was no more than a prophecy for
its success this year. Besides having to its credit some laudable motives and aims, the
Debating League has a history which supports it well.
The purposes, as set forth by the officers and the league members, are achieved by a
program which provides for equal opportunities in the practice of speaking before a group,
for first-hand information on topics of current interest and for contacts within and with-
out the college whereby this knowledge and its application may be thoroughly tested.
The debating society, too, is a capable agent in the renovation of the American sense
The history of the Debating League deserves to be recorded. In 1929 a Montclair team
defeated Susquehanna University. In 1931 another team lost to Susquehanna and Middle-
bury; but defeated Upsala in both sides of a dual debate. The program for this year is an
extensive one, one that will require a great deal of time, hard work, and loyal support.
This organization is not merely for team members. Meetings are held regularly so that
all members (membership is voluntary) can derive the benefits from exercise in public
speaking that teachers should have.
The officers for this year are: Harley Scott, president; Mae Allen, vice-president; Pearl
Seifer, secretary; and Catherine Mazzara, manager.
Der Deutsche Verein
At the monthly meetings of the German Club the customary "Kaffeeklatsch" is held,
after which programs on German literature, philosophy, art, and music are presented in
the form of lectures, discussion, songs, etc. Besides these activities, the club makes a trip
to the German section of New York during the year and presents the traditional Nativity
Play each Christmas. This year, special interest centered on the celebration of the 100th
anniversary of the death of Goethe.
The following members of the club held office during the academic year 1931-1932:
president. Vera Breen; vice-president, Anna Pfeifauf; secretaries, Brigette Brose and Irma
Seibt; treasurer, Beatrice Gross. Professor Margaret B. Holz, the head of the Foreign
Language Department and Director of Student Exchange; and Doctor Theodor Rabeler,
Instructor of German, are club advisers.
This year the club is particularly proud to count among its members two foreign ex-
change students to Montclair: Miss Irma Seibt of Semmering, Austria; and Miss Brigitte
Brose of Berlin, Germany. Three of the club's members are at present studying at German
and Austrian Universities: Mr. Louis Kreigsfeld at Cologne; Mr. John Kirchof at Giessen,
and Miss Svea Wikstrom at Vienna.
The Dramatic Club has had a most successful year under a Council consisting of Agnes
Connors, president; Marie Sonn, vice-president; Elizabeth Egan, secretary-treasurer;
Elinor Gorham, Edward Sayles, Mildred Mehrtens, Adeline Mair, Harold Butterworth,
and Josephine Hornbeeck. The monthly meetings, in charge of the Council members were
varied. Besides such plays as Susan Glaspell's "Trifles" and Edna Saint Vincent Millay's
"Two Slatterns and a King," interesting talks by Mr. Bohn and Mrs. Humphrey were
given. In November, in assembly, the Club presented a modern miracle play by Stewart
Walker, "Six Who Pass While the Lentils Boil." The participants were Ann Daley, Marie
Sonn, William Atkins, Harold Butterworth, Edward Sayles, Robert Greenwald, Eliza-
beth Egan, and Kelvin Flaherty.
At Christmas, the club contributed an Irish drama, "The Table Set for Himself," by
Eline Wilbur. The chief roles were taken by Elinor Gorham, Agnes Connors, Kelvin
Flaherty, Ethel Wheeler, Nora O'Hagen, Vera Breen, John Bye, and John Hinkel.
For a new venture the club has co-operated with the College High School to help them
establish a Dramatic Club.
The club has been successful in fostering the outstanding dramatic events at the college.
The organization is indebted to its faculty adviser, Mrs. Louise G. Humphrey, for its
II Circolo Italiano
November, 1930, marked the beginning of an organization entitled II Circolo Italiano.
The main purpose of this organization is to gain a knowledge and an understanding of the
importance of the contributions of Italy to civilization. Another objective is to enrich the
cultural backgrounds of the members. Much time is spent on the study of Italian music,
art, education, government, and language. Intertwined with this study, the delightful and
simple habits and customs of the people of Italy provide rich material for intellectual
enjoyment and appreciation. Besides obtaining a knowledge of the phases of Italian life,
the members of II Circolo Italiano come in contact with Italian customs when they attend
an annual Italian Dinner at the end of the school year. The opportunity of enjoying this
dinner is restricted to members of the organization and their friends.
II Circolo Italiano is gradually assuming prominence and creating interest at Mont-
clair State Teachers College.
Membership in the club is not limited to students of Italian extraction. Any one with a
lively interest in things Italian may join the organization. Professor Paul W. Hamilton is
faculty adviser and the cfficers are: president, Marie Pucacco; vice-president, Helen
Vitello; secretary, Catherine Mazzara; treasurer, Joseph Kutner.
Kappa Delta Pi
Two years of planning for an honorary education society at Montclair culminated in
the organization of the Gamma Epsilon chapter of Kappa Delta Pi on May 22, 1931.
Forty-two students and alumni of the institution, representing the classes of 1930, 1931,
and 1932 were installed as charter members.
Although the chapter was established during the school year 1930-1931, the real activi-
ties of the society were not in full swing until September, 1931. The first meeting of the
year was devoted to the installation of officers and the election of new members. The
initiation ceremonies at the November meeting provided much amusement for the charter
members at the expense of much writhing on the part of the initiates. The remaining
activities of the year included: December, an address, "The Revolt in Art," by Mr.
Lawrence Conrad; January, a lecture-recital on Chopin by Miss Edna McEachern;
February, an address by Dr. Stratmeyer, first vice-president of the Executive Council of
Kappa Delta Pi; March, a talk by Dr. Hadley and election of new members; April, the
initiation of new members; May, the annual formal banquet.
The officers of the organization are: president, Ruth Hornby; vice-president, Sarah
Bogert; second vice-president, Josephine Hoornbeek; corresponding secretary, Lester
DeBeer; recording secretary, Alice Glannon; treasurer, Dorothy Holman; and counselor,
Mr. John G. Flowers. These officers and Helen Anderson constitute the charter members
who are still undergraduates. President Sprague and Dean Finley were admitted as
honorary members in January.
The League of Women Voters
Non-partisan, the League of Women Voters gives to all the opportunity of enjoying an
unbiased viewpoint of the politics of the day. Its purposes are to develop an intelligent
understanding of the international problems of the day and to act according to one's con-
victions, regardless of party affiliations. Its chief aim is to encourage independent thinking
and acting upon political questions. This keener understanding of modern day affairs is
achieved through its interesting meetings. Open discussions of such problems as Un-
employment, the trouble in India, and Russia's Five Year Plan afford the members ex-
cellent opportunities to sound their ability to reason clearly and openly upon the events
of the day, which so greatly need clear and unbiased analysis. Excellent speakers, whose
understanding of the topic upon which they speak is surpassed only by the skilful pre-
sentation of the topic, contribute to the enjoyment of the club's meetings.
The meetings are held the first Monday of every month in Chapin Hall. The first meet-
ing of every term is an open meeting which all whose names have been submitted to the
club may attend and become members. The social side of the club adds just that veneer
of light enjoyment so necessary to the success of any organization. Bridges, an annual
dinner, trips to the State Legislature and conferences of nation-wide interest are by no
means minor reasons for the club's popularity.
The officers are; president, Nora O'Hagen; vice-president, Charlotte Ach; secretary,
Virginia McAleer; and treasurer, Dorothy Wescoat. Miss Lloyd is the faculty adviser.
Omicron Kappa Gamma
The Omicron Kappa Gamma, as indicated by the name, is a club made up of off-campus
girls. Since the need for such an organization became particularly evident in 1930, because
of the large number of girls living off-campus, Omicron Kappa Gamma was organized
under the able guidance of Mrs. Carter, who later became faculty adviser for the group.
The purposes, as set forth by the club members, are to encourage a spirit of friendliness
among the girls, and to bring them together in a closer relationship in social and athletic
The annual Christmas bridge party was a huge success and was an auspicious start for
the number of social activities which succeeded it. The spring formal and the Easter
party were attended by a record gathering and represented the club at its social best.
Besides being a definite factor in the advancement of enjoyable social activities in the
school, the club has contributed toward the furthering of athletics. Its members have
formed teams, which have played admirably against teams composed of commuters and
The officers of the club for the year 1931-1932 were: president, Elma Orth; vice-presi-
dent, Constance Sabateiii; secretary-treasurer, Marion Hinne?.
Opera Study Club
An evidence of the love for music of our students is the success of the Opera Study Club.
Although it has been in existence a little over one year, the membership totals more than
fifty. The only requirement for an applicant is that he be a sincere lover of music and
that he have an interest in Opera particularly.
Through the medium of this organization, it is possible to learn the settings, the char-
acters, and the plot of all the operas which continue as favorites throughout the world.
What is perhaps most important is that one become familiar with the various arias of
With such a foundation as one acquires here, the organization was able to carry out its
plans by visiting the Metropolitan Opera House to hear Verdi's "Aida"; Puccini's ' La
Boheme"; and Bizet's "Carmen."
Meetings are held every month under the supervision of Miss Edna McEachern who
presents the story of the opera with the music. The author's and composer's life is pre-
sented by the students.
The officers for the year 1931-1932 were: president, Harriet Bross; vice-president,
Eunice Helme; secretary, Nellie Johnson; treasurer, Tekla Bingel.
The Philosophy Club
Lessing, the German dramatist and critic, says somewhere in his works that if God gave
him the choice between the knowledge of all truth and the search for it, he would humbly
take the latter. In such a spirit the Philosophy Club had its inception in November, 1930,
and continues its work in the college. The members feel that a knowledge of the major
problems of philosophy and of the works of the great philosophers is essential to a proper
understanding of literature, art, history, science, and most important of all — life.
The club has for its adviser and guide, Professor Margaret B. Holz, whose broad out-
look and helpful suggestions aided the club in formulating a program for this year. The
program included a study of Plato and Aristotle — the works of these men, their influence
on world thought, and their relation to everyday life were the main topics of consideration.
The work of the club included also a systematic survey of medieval and modern philos-
The officers who directed the activities of the club for the year 1931-1932 were: presi-
dent, Joseph Kutner; vice-president, Helen Vitello; secretary-treasurer, Adelaide Mc-
The Psychology Club
The aims of the Psychology Club are two-fold : to become conversant with the current
trends in pyschology, and to encourage and develop any and all interests in the field of
psychology. Membership consists of students who have had at least one term of psychol-
ogy and show an intrinsic interest in the subject through contributions to club activities
and through participations in the programs. The total membership is about fifty, including
the members of the Mental Hygiene Clinic. Dr. Caroline B. Zachry, director of the In-
stitute, and Miss Wilma Lloyd, are the faculty advisers.
During the past year the organization followed a program entirely different from those
of past years. At each monthly meeting the psychological aspects of some form of litera-
ture were discussed. For example, in November contemporary prose was studied, and in
January the club considered the new psychological novel.
In October the group was hostess at an all-day conference of the psychology clubs from
the divers state educational institutions. In the morning a round table discussion was
held. Unique features of the various organizations were exchanged. In the afternoon an
interesting visit was made to the State Training School at Totowa. There were, in all,
about sixty at the conference, representing Glassboro, Trenton, Jersey City, and Newark.
The officers for the year of 1931-1932 were: president, Frances Smith: vice-president,
Anne Selling; secretary, Dorothy Virginia Wescoat: treasurer, Muriel Maxson.
Rohwec, the honorary history society, has been prominent not only in college activities,
but also in the whole state of New Jersey since its organization in 1928. This year has
been a very successful and interesting one. Member participation has been the keynote
of the programs. They consisted almost entirely of contributions from the individual
members who had developed topics along their particular lines of interest. At the con-
clusion of these presentations the meetings were given over to the social enjoyment of the
club. In addition to the regular monthly meetings, profitable field trips to places of his-
toric interest have been planned for the group. Rohwec also acted as host to the conven-
tion of teachers interested in the field of political science which was held on our campus
Selection of members for Rohwec is limited to those Social Science majors who have
shown marked ability in their major field as evidenced by their ratings and achievement.
The primary aim of the society is to foster interest and research in the field of social
The officers of 1931-1932 were: Lester De Beer, R; Jane Walker, O; Professor Harold
S. Sloan, H; Mildred Hirrschoff, W; Cecile Stierli, E.
The Science Club of New Jersey State Teachers College developed as an outgrowth of
the Science Club of the State Normal School. The purpose of the club is to constitute a
medium for the presentation and discussion of scientific topics not covered in class work,
and to give opportunity for training in methods of scientific thought and procedure. It
affords members experience in handling demonstration equipment and gives them, as
prospective teachers, experience in handling a science club.
Meetings are held the first and third Mondays of every month. Membership in the
club is limited, although anyone interested in science may attend meetings. Majors or
minors in science who have attained a rating of B for one term are eligible. Freshman
majors in science may be admitted after the first meeting in May.
The officers for 1931-1932 are: president, Elliot Edling; vice-president, William Benken-
dorf: secretary, Frances Hardy: and treasurer, Jessie Mack. The faculty advisers are Dr.
Glenn, Dr. Reed, Dr. Hadley, and Dr. McLachlan.
The Senate Club has for its objectives the promotion of cultural interests at the college
and the development of the highest social, artistic, and general cultural qualities in its
members. Membership in the Senate is by invitation, English majors and minors whose
scholastic qualifications are satisfactory to the club being given the preference. The
organization is sponsored by the English department and has as its faculty adviser,
Professor Webster. Mr. Bohn, Mr. Collins, and Mr. Warriner are active Faculty members
of the club.
Twelve evenings in the year, the Senators meet at the home of Professor Webster and
on these occasions programs are given by the members. The programs for the year 1931-
1932 centered around the general subject of the forms of music.
On one occasion during each school year, the Senate sponsors a program for the college
at a Chapel period. The artist presented by the Senate this year was the outstanding
violinist, Miss Dorotha Powers. It also has become a custom for the Senate to have an
annual open meeting.
The president of the Senate for the year 1931-1932 was Senator Edward Sayles; Senator
Offringa held the office of vice-president and chairman of the Program Committee; Sena-
tor Herbert Ogden was the secretary and Senator Norman Weir, the treasurer.
Sigma Phi Mu
A little more than four years ago, this organization began under the name of the Mathe-
matics Club. Later it assumed the title Sigma Phi Mu, literally meaning Surveyors in
the Field of Mathematics. The group was organized, as the new title may suggest, to
stimulate interest and further opportunities for the study of mathematics beyond that
taught in the classroom. The members are drawn from the mathematics majors and minors
in all classes of the college.
The meetings which are usually held the second and fourth weeks of every month, have
inspired an appreciative audience. Prominent speakers and members of the club have
presented many interesting talks. The club was very fortunate in having Mr. Urbane
Barrett of Los Angeles, California, and Dr. Kramer of the Mathematics Department of
our college, speak. Several entertaining meetings have been held, furthering the social
life and activities of the club.
Professor Virgil S. Mallory, in the role of faculty adviser, has been of great assistance to
the officers of the club in making 1931-1932 another exceedingly successful year. The
officers for the year were: Richard Miller, president; Eleanor Hagen, vice-president;
Pauline Lake, secretary; and Sarah Edwards, treasurer.
La Tertulia Espanola
The year 1931-1932 has been a successful one for the TertuHa Espanola, a club, which
in spite of its small membership, has tried to contribute its full share to the social and
aesthetic life of the school.
The club, composed of all students of Spanish and of others interested in the language,
has a three-fold aim: to improve the speaking ability of its members, to further their
knowledge of the life and customs of Spanish speaking peoples, and to promote a feeling
of amity and good fellowship between the youth of America and their Spanish neighbors.
The past year has been an entertaining one for the club, interest having been augmented
by the membership of two exchange students — Luis Lopez, a guest student from Spain,
and Manuel Sanchez Gavito, guest student from Mexico.
A play; La Guarda Cuidadosa," performed in the College High School auditorium in
January, will be remembered as the club's outstanding social contribution to the school
at large. The members also enjoyed a trip to New York which included a visit to a Spanish
museum, theater and restaurant.
Miss Teresa de Escoriaza, instructor in Spanish, is the faculty adviser.
The officers are: Lucile W. Drews, president; Ruth Johnson, vice-president; Bella

The Pelican, organ of student comment, is a bi-weekly newspaper sponsored by the
English Department under the advisership of W. Paul Hamilton, assistant professor in
English. Established to publish current campus news and to give Montclair students
opportunities to practice journalism, the newspaper is a result of student effort.
In 1931, the Pelican received first class honor rating in the National Scholastic Press
Association and first place in the Columbia Scholastic Press Association.
All editors, reporters, and other staff members are selected on a competitive basis. Only
faithful, active workers are maintained as staff members.
Meetings of the editorial board are held bi-weekly on the day of publication. Matters
of policy as well as plans for the succeeding issue are discussed.
A column for student opinion is maintained, and all members of the student body are
invited to contribute.
Sixty-four students assisted in the publication of the Pelican during 1931-1932 in the
various departments of news, make-up, business, and features. The sports editorship was
added this year.
For the fiscal year 1931-1932 the following editorial staff was elected: Marguerite M.
Krahenbuhl, editor-in-chief; Harriet C. Smith, associate editor; Eleanor Pedersen, copy
editor; Robert C. Smith, news editor; Doris Adams, feature editor; Eunice Vassar, make-
up editor; Vera Saltzman, alumni editor; Margaret Reid, business manager; Walter Kops,
The Montclair Quarterly
The spring issue of the Montclair Quarterly marks an anniversary. The Quarterly
is two years old. As a result of a demand coming from the student body for a magazine
which would serve as a medium for creative expression, the Montclair Quarterly was
first established in the spring of 1930, through the combined efforts of the English de-
partment, an energetic staff, and a small group of selected contributors. Modest in this
initial endeavor, the staff was nevertheless insistent that the issue embody high standards
of literary art. One of the principal aims of subsequent issues has been to maintain that
That the magazine may become more valuable to the whole student body, the staff has
endeavored to give each manuscript submitted individual and specific attention, and to
offer constructive criticism to those persons whose work seems promising. Thus, the
Quarterly hopes to become more than the ' outlet" for creative work, as the originators
intended; to become, rather, a useful and worthwhile organ of creative expression for
students at Montclair.
The Quarterly is published at the end of each term. The staff of the magazine during
1931-1932 has been headed by Josephine Hornbeek, '32, editor-in-chief; Beatrice Brod-
head, '32, editor of the literary staff; and Elizabeth Buchanan, '33, manager of the business
staff. Mr. Paul S. Nickerson is the faculty adviser.

". . . To brisk notes in cadence beating
Glance their many twinkling feet."
Montclair has been upon her toes socially this year. Social committees seem to have
worked harder than ever to make every M. S. T. C. affair an overwhelming success.
Seniors and Frosh, dorm girls and commuters, faculty and students, all were caught in the
social whirl of 1931-32.
The very first week of the school year, terrified groups of Freshmen learned to their sur-
prise that our Faculty were "real folks." These same Frosh were literally swept off their
feet this year — with the Commuters' Party, The Big Sisters' Entertainment, and the
Student Council Tea Dance — and all in their honor. These freshmen must be more signifi-
cant than we think.
The dormitory girls continued their social tradition as in years past. On October 24th,
Chapin and Edward Russ girls held their fall formals. The spirit of autumn was very much
in evidence, for cornstalks and pumpkins and bright -colored autumn leaves supplied the
atmosphere. With the added inducement of two good orchestras, novelty dances, and of
course, refreshments, the merrymakers had a glorious time. The committees were headed
by Edna Totten in Edward Russ and Edith Day in Chapin.
The next really big event in Montclair's Social Calendar was the Junior-Senior formal,
held November 20th. Amidst the tropical atmosphere created by monster palms, four
hundred people danced in both dormitories to the strains of two exceptional orchestras;
and four hundred people agreed that the Junior committee, with Florence Aichele as
chairman, was to be complimented for its unusual accomplishment in the social realm.
The outstanding event of the Sophomore class was the Christmas formal, held in Chapin
Hall on December 18th. The decorations centering about a gayly bedecked evergreen,
reflected the spirit of the season. But there was something more, for each girl received a
gift bracelet from old St. Nick. Anna May Miller was chairman of the group in charge of
January 23rd again saw the dorm girls as leaders of Montclair's "society." On that day,
Chapin and Edward Russ held their Tea Dance, under the leadership of Genevieve Quinn
and Grace Edgar. The affair featured a splendid orchestra, a buffet supper, and a Leap
Year stag line of ' co-eds."
The Freshmen were out to do big things this year, and their formal Frosh Hop on March
4th in Chapin Hall was certainly up to par. There were interesting modernistic dance
programs in the school colors, and novelty ' lucky spot" and "Leap Year" dances to the
music of Cliff Gordon's orchestra. The untiring work of a committee led by Wallace
Winchell helped put the affair on an equal plane with such august formals as the Senior
Ball and the Junior Prom.
A novel idea was introduced by the Seniors this year when they held a dance in honor
of the Alumni of M. S .T. C. Reminiscences of college days and prospects of teaching days
were the order of the evening. We wonder whether Eleanor Gorham, the capable chairman,
can explain why they chose April 1st for the date.
The girls of Edward Russ and Chapin followed their Easter celebrations with the final
preparations for their Spring formals. The spring in the air, and the turning of "young
men's fancies" secured the proper atmosphere of carefree and whole-hearted enjoyment.
''Dim thoughts of life, and its endless strife
Blend with the music of our dreams,
Our spirits wait, at the mystic gate
Of the world that is and the world that seems."
Senior Week this year was a most gala event — or rather, a succession of events, and a
continuous round of good times and merriment. But beneath this festive air could be
discerned, at times, real sadness — sorrow because these were the last times when this
illustrious group of undergraduates could dance, sing, and feast together.
Senior Week opened with the traditional Senior Ball. This year's ball, however, sur-
passed all others. It was held in the dining room and the reception room of Edward Russ
Hall, and music, refreshments, decorations, and multi-colored gowns all added to the
splendor of so extraordinary an occasion. The next event in the Senior social calendar was
the party given to the Faculty. But, introducing an innovation into Montclair's social
circles, this took the form of a garden party on our beautiful campus. Following this in
quick succession came the Faculty luncheon to the Seniors, the Senior Tea Dance, the
Faculty-Senior picnic, and last, but by no means least, Baccalaureate and Commence-
ment exercises. All these occasions were characterized by the fine spirit of festivity and
co-operation that distinguished all the undertakings of the class of 1932.
"A very merry, dancing, drinking.
Laughing, quaffing, and unthinking time."
The Junior Prom — the one event in our college careers that we remember long after
most others have faded from memory! There seems to be something intangibly different
about a Junior Prom. It somehow combines the fun and frivolity of the lower class dances
with the ultra-formality of a Senior Ball.
Montclair's Junior Prom this year fulfilled all our hopes and expectations. Every detail
reached that peak of perfection for which every dance strives. The brilliant hues of
gorgeous gowns combined to make a veritable symphony of colors, and these, blending
into a background of formal decorations made a most dazzling sight. The guests divided
their time between sampling the delicious refreshments, and swaying, under soft lights,
to the strains of one of the most popular dance orchestras. The whole affair admirably
sustained the reputation of the Junior Class — a reputation for ability and versatility in
social activities. The Prom was held in May, and was planned and directed by a most
capable committee headed by Florence Aichele, and consisting of Nora O'Hagen, Elizabeth
Partridge, Frances Gail, Ruth Smith, and Olga McCready.

The Foreign Exchange System
Montclair is the only Teachers College in the country which can take pride in having
organized a Student Exchange System. The plan was devised and put under way by Miss
Holz in 1929 when five Montclair students went to France, two to Vienna, and two to
Mexico City. While these foreign language majors were studying abroad, one Austrian,
one German, one French, and two Mexican students were enjoying the Montclair campus
and classes and the valuable experience of living in the United States. Since the inaugura-
tion of this system, a total of twenty-nine Montclairites have been sent by the Student
Exchange System to European and Mexican Universities and twelve guests from abroad
have made extended visits to the college.
Great care is taken by Miss Holz in the selection of the students who go abroad, not
only as regards scholastic ability and achievement, but in regards to personality qualities
as well. This extreme selective care is used, however, only in matters pertaining to charac-
ter, personality, and scholastic ability. The cost to the students is kept as low as possible
and is ever within the reach of the majority.
One of the basic objectives of the Foreign Exchange System is to bring our students into
closer contact with the life and language of the country each is studying.
For modern foreign language majors, the department strongly favors a year of study
abroad, where, by living with the culture and speaking the language in which they are
specializing, they may acquire a broader conception and a more thorough knowledge of
the literature and the idiom and culture. The students who have been abroad affirm that
they return to our country with a new outlook on life. A period of time spent away from
America has permitted them to assume the objective viewpoint; by contrasting America
with the nation which they have visited they have come to see much more clearly America
in her relation to foreign countries.
As well as giving a right to the title of world citizen, the period spent in another country
where another language is spoken, cannot but facilitate the student's linguistic education.
When one breathes a foreign atmosphere, orders foreign dishes in a foreign language, buys
opera tickets in Paris, or takes a co-ed out in Madrid, one thoroughly saturates oneself
with a foreign culture, and comes to think in the language rather than to translate pain-
fully into English. Not only is this system of value to the students who are selected to go
abroad, but those who remain in Montclair have the considerable cultural advantage of
companionship with the foreign students who come to the college.
Extended though the services of the Foreign Exchange System are at present, the
possibilities of expansion have by no means been exhausted. The Foreign Language De-
partment hopes and expects to send more students abroad, and to still other countries, as
Switzerland, Belgium, and the Latin-American nations.

Foreign Exchange Students Remarks
Excerpts from Letters
Florence Bogardus — Rouen
Easter vacation, which ended the day before yesterday, was one glorious holiday. First of all, we visited
Provence, Avignon, Nimes, and Aries — with all their wonderful Roman ruins — the "Palais des Papes,"
Villeneuve - 4es Avignon -the arena and Roman baths —we danced on the famous Pont d'Avignon and
visited the tower of the Palais des Papes, about which Daudet wrote his "Mule du Pape." The whole country
there just breathes Daudet and his "Lettres de Mon Moulin" — and we loved every bit of it.
Then came Marseille and the truly thrilling experience of walking down "La Cannebiere" where all the
nations of the world rub shoulders. We took a boat for the Chateau d'lf -we didn't try to go through the
hole from which the Count of Monte Cristo escaped, although that is supposed to bring good luck. We went
paddling at Toulon 1 with our polo coats buttoned up to our necks.) The trip by autocar from Toulon to Nice
was simply perfect. We had a half an hour at Cannes, too.
Perhaps one of the most interesting things we did was to watch the people going in and out of the game
rooms from the lobby of the Casino at Monte Carlo.
We were actually in Italy! Having our passports, we were allowed to cross the border when we took an
excursion to Menton, and the frontier from Nice! Another perfect day was spent in autocar from Nice to
Grenoble by the Route des Alpes.
Now, when I get it all down on paper, it seems so very impossible that all this could have happened to me.
Celia Rabinowitz — C/ermonf-Ferrand
Several weeks ago we saw "Horace." What a tempestuous performance' We laughed until our sides ached.
Normaliennes and Normaliens kept reciting all of the tirades with the actors and actresses. How well the
French know their classics. And how differently a theatrical performance is received in France.
The past few weeks have been rather turbulent, politically. Even the professors at odd moments gave dis-
sertations on the dark future of France and of the world in general. Instead of being in America reading
about France, I'm right here among the French listening to their opinions and ideas about international
One day we spent visiting the tiny but ever so picturesque village of Vertaizon. It was a bitterly cold Sun-
day, but I shall never forget the effect of the evergreens white with hoar frost, the old, old church in ruins
and the old oak tree planted by Sully. Standing in front of the oak and looking down the valley below through
the white branches of the trees is the nearest I've yet come to a fairy-like atmosphere. I was just as much
thrilled as I was when walking down the Champs Elysees. Life holds an awful lot of interest these days. I hate
to think of how fast time is flying.
Audrey Montgomery — Madrid
The trip to Madrid was perfect. I have never enjoyed anything so thoroughly. From the time the Rocham-
beau slowly glided down the Hudson until the train pulled into the station here, we were having one of the
most interesting vacations possible. One of my most vivid memories is our approach to Spain the morning of
October 6. We were up at 6 o'clock —on deck — getting our very first glimpse of Europe — of Spain — of the
Old World. If we had romantic illusions, we were not disappointed. It was rather drizzly weather -but we
could see in the distance dark, rigid mountains whose tops were covered with fog. And, as we neared our
harbor — the fog was lifted, unveiling for us the quaintest picture of an old Spanish town nestled against a
mountain overlooking a large, quiet body of water. Our modern ship seemed out of place in these medieval
surroundings. From the shore many small boats were rapidly rowed toward us. They were filled with peasants
bringing their shawls, laces, pictures, fruits, and even dogs, to sell to the passengers. My one wish was that I
were an artist with brush or with word, so that I could send home my thrilling impression of these scenes. I
loved Spain at first sight.
Louis Kriegsfeld —Cologne
And now for a real report of what I have been doing during the last weeks. I visited the opera several times;
once with Fraulein Pennartz. I intend to go regularly. In the theatre nothing worth seeing was produced out-
side of "Minna von Barnhelm" and "Peer Gynt" which I went to see.
I have finished the first part of my thesis for Dr. Hankammer — a study of Gottscheds "Kritische Dicht-
kunst." He recognized it as a "good attempt." In the last two weeks of my vacation I shall finish the rest, so
that I shall have the whole summer semester free for elective work and may become better acquainted with
many Germans and German life.
Men's Athletic Association
The regulation of men's athletics, including the awarding of athletic rewards ruling on
the eligibility of certain players, the arrangement of team schedules, and the apportioning
of finances for the maintenance of intercollegiate athletics all come under the authority
of the Men's Athletic Association.
The social program of the year was successfully managed by the officers and the social
committee under Saul Scherer, chairman. Those memorable "pep" rallies in Chapin and
the "victory bon-fire" inaugurated during the football season, will remain epics of school
life. The Football Dance climaxed the autumn season, and the proceeds were used for the
purchase of athletic awards. Besides letters and sweaters, thirteen outgoing Seniors will
receive the gold charms symbolical of a three year varsity membership in their particular
sport. From the football squad, Gordon, Jacobs, Rice, Rosenberg, Rutan, Thomas, and
Weir have been awarded the charm. From the basketball line-up, Cahill, Cendo, Cough-
lin, Goss, Hohn, Scherer will receive the coveted award. During the past year, the Mont-
clair "M" Club, an honorary athletic society, came into existence.
For the past year, the Association has been under the capable management of John
MacLean, president: Howard Kling, vice-president; and William Benkendorf, secretary-
treasurer. Special commendation should be paid to Coach Leslie and Mr. Milstead who,
in their capacity as faculty advisers, made every effort to assist the sports of the college
and successfully enlisted the interest of every male member of the Faculty.
1931-1932 saw M. S. T. C. again forge to the front on the intercollegiate courts of three
states. The followers of basketball watched the crackerjack combination of Cahill, Cendo,
Coughlin, Goss, Hohn and Scherer, show the result of four years of team play and in-
dividual growth. John Cendo and Dan Goss, forwards; Saul Scherer, center; Ed Coughlin,
Walter Hohn, and Dick Cahill, guards; all Seniors, all fighters, and all masters of the fine
art of basketball made up the team. Extraordinary passing, feinting, and dribbling were
their natural endowments and summarize the reasons why Montclair possesses an excel-
lent record for sportsmanship and basketball finesse. A great amount of credit is due
Coach Leslie for the manner in which he moulded the winning combination.
Manager Lynch, following the precedent set by Senior Manager Jacobs, scheduled the
majority of games with teacher-training institutions. It was necessary to travel far afield,
but the resulting friendships and good will has more than justified the wisdom of such
A glance at the schedule will show the herculean task that confronted a team with only
one really experienced substitute. However, the promising showing made by the Juniors,
Sophomores, and Freshmen bears evidence that Montclair will continue to be well repre-
sented on the ribbed court.
The year 1931 will long remain an eventful one in the sport annals of M. S. T. C. foot-
ball. Montclair's gridiron representatives downed Trenton State Teachers for the first
time in the history of athletic relations between the two colleges in a hard-fought contest,
by a score of 6-0.
Previous to this victory, Coach Leslie's ' Red Devils" had scored 52 points to their
opponents' 20. Wagner and Cooper Union were victims of the Montclair team. Brooklyn
City College administered their first defeat of the season in a gruelling game, to the tune
However, the victory in the annual 'climax" game with Trenton redeemed any previous
losses. Those who attended the game saw an inspired, infuriated line of red-jerseyed
warriors tear the Trenton line to pieces, and the Montclair backs march to victory.
Throughout the game, every man was on the job at just the right time, making it possible
for MacLean to block the Trenton kick and score the touchdown. The final game of the
season against the New York Aggies proved disastrous. 13-0 tells the result.
It is with regret that the school sees a large number of its stars graduate; Gordon,
Jacobs, Rice, Rosenberg, Rutan, Thomas, Weir and Manager Hohn will leave vacancies
that only t'me and hard work can replace.
The spring of 1931 saw the latest of our major sports, tennis, advance to a position
Cahill, Cendo, Gcss, Kops, and MacLean became members of the tour .lament squad
and represented Montclair with typical Montclair spirit and skill on the clay courts.
Matches with Long Island University (2), Upsala (2), and Cooper Union (1), afforded the
spectators a great many thrills.
The graduation of Cahill, Cendo, and Goss leave niches that will have to be filled. Kops
and MacLean are veterans who show definite promise of filling these niches admirably.
The Men's Tennis Tournament proved that there is a wealth of material here that bids
fair to rival the best that Montclair has yet assembled.
Jack Urdang, former Junior Champion of Hudson County and winner of the tourna-
ment, is one of the most promising prospects to make an appearance on the campus in a
number of years.
Manager Kops has prepared an ambitious schedule for 1932 which will include some
of the most representative teams in the metropolitan collegiate area.
The Women's Athletic Association Council
' All work and no play makes college a dull place," and it is the practice of the Women's
A. A. Council to plan a full program of well organized play appealing to all.
The Council is the executive board of the Women's Athletic Association, an organiza-
tion to which every woman in the college belongs. Membership in the Women's A. A. per-
mits every woman to enter into the athletics of the college, to attend all the games, and
to vote for officers and representatives of the W. A. A. C.
The Council is made up of a representative elected from each section of each class.
With the able assistance of Miss Duke and Miss Sherwin, faculty advisers, this body
plans the women's sport activities for the year. The activities include planning games of
sports in season, choosing final teams in each sport, organizing Play Days, and taking
care of miscellaneous duties, such as checking up on the condition of the athletic and health
apparatus of the school.
In addition to its athletic activities, the Council has a very definite social life. There
are hikes in the fall, and long remembered skating parties in the winter, with more hikes
in the spring, and a week-end at the shore in the summer. These are outings reserved for
the Council, but parties are given at the end of each season for those who have won their
bars or numerals. An annual banquet at the end of the year is open to all the women of
The officers for 1931-1932 are: president, Eleanor Dooley; vice-president, Elizabeth
Buchanan; secretary, Dorothy Lennon; and treasurer, Anna Mae Miller.
This year brought with it the longest and one of the most interesting hockey seasons
we have yet had. Never before has hockey continued almost up to Christmas. This was
due to the unusually slow approach of cold weather.
The Freshman class brought into the college a number of veteran hockey players who
made the upperclassmen sit up and take notice. As far as class teams were concerned, the
Freshman team was in the lead. Besides the exciting battles between classes, the Odds
played and beat the Evens, and the Off-Campus girls took three goals to the Commuter's
The culmination of the season came in the big Red-White game. Every hockey player
aspires to be chosen on either the Red or the White team. These teams are selected by the
Women's Athletic Council with the assistance of the faculty advisers. They are picked
from all the girls who have come out for hockey and represent, as nearly as can be judged,
the best players in the college.
The hockey season was managed by a committee appointed from the council made up
of E. Jackson, A. Miller, H. Merselis, G. Brown, and D. Holman.
Baseball, the truly American game, again proved its popularity this year by drawing
a great number of enthusiastic supporters. Those who came out to play represented all
four classes, but the Freshman and Sophomores had the largest regular attendance.
Perhaps the weather had much to do with the great amount of interest that was shown.
The sport lovers were very fortunate in having nice weather with the ground in shape so
early in the spring. And how the sun shone! Do you remember how the regular players
were the envy of the rest of the students when they beg n to show signs of a coat of tan?
The players were organized into several teams, and the competition was very keen.
Great efforts were made on both sides to gain supremacy, but the teams were so well
balanced that it was a hard struggle. The big game, and the novelty of the season, was
that played by a team of Freshmen boys and girls against a team of Sophomore boys and
girls. The score, as well as the excitement, ran high, and the shouting was overwhelming
when the Sophomores won.
The ' big hitters" on the Red team, the champion team of the season, were Betty
Buchanan, Anna Selling, Grace Brown, and Martha Stafford. They were loyally supported
by Reginia Lynch, Bessy Baldwin, Lucille Calhoun, Dorothy Frank, Alvina Hess, and
The hundred players who turned out for practice proved once again that basketball is
the most popular of girls' sports. In order to give all of the candidates a chance to partici-
pate, inter-section games were scheduled for the first part of the season. The class teams
were finally chosen from the inter-section teams after due consideration by the coaches
and the Council.
The class games determined the college championship, which was won by the Class of
1933. For the two previous years, the team of the Class of '32 had been college champion,
but this season it went down to defeat in a hard fought game that resulted in a score of
15-6. Despite the fact that the Freshman class seemed to have splendid material, the
Class of '33 proved superior, defeating them 34-17.
At the end of the season, two teams were chosen to compete in the final contest. The
Red team, composed of Maines, Grimes, Lake, Cleveland, Brown, and Cerami, defeated
by a score of 23-16, the White players: Kirsch, Jenkins, Buchanan, Selling, Schanck, and
Smith. The members of these two teams being the best players in the college, the game
between them was an intense climax to an exciting season.
