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. 

Chorus — 

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. 

— E. Hoch

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.

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. 


"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! 


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! 


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? 


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 
Montclair felt. 





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 
they're cracked. 


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. 


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. 





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 — ! 


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 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 


1/ -A. 



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 
you, Miriam! 


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- 





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 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! 


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. 





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. 


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 
for Montclair. 


I/A I 



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. 


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. 


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. 





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 


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 ! 


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! 






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 


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 
been otherwise! 


"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 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. 





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 
student, Elsie! 


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. 


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 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. 


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 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! 


' 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." 




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. 


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. 





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. 


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! 


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.

" — 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. 


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- 


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. 




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! 


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. 


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 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! 


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. 





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 


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 


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. 




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- 
round girl. 


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. 






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. 


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. 


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. 


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'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 — 


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 ! 




,., 1 


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. 


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! 





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. 


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. 


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 
happy fashion. 


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 
her class? 


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!

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. 


"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. 





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 
companions. . 


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. 


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- 
ing you. 





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? 


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'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! 


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?

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! 


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 
to her. 





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 
Ferraro-Nixon team. 


"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 
our "Al." 


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 





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. 


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. 


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. 





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. 


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 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 
particular reasons. 





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 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? 




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 


I/A I 



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. 


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. 


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 





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. 


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. 


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! 


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. 





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. . . 


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 
Delta Pi. 




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 


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 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- 


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. 


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. 


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 


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. 




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. 


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. 


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 
and then? 





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 
translate Latin. 


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 
huge success. 


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. 





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. 


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. 


II Lampanilla 


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 


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- 
spective teacher? 




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. 


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. 


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? 





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! 


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. 


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 


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 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 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 
always commended. 


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. 


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?

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. 


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- 
termined will. 


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. 

—Max Shapiro, '33

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 
of membership. 

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. 




Commuters 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, 
were held. 

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 
study periods. 

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. 




Debating League 

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 
of humor. 

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. 



Dramatic Club 

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 
dormitory giris. 

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 
the operas. 

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 
last November. 

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. 



Science Club 

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 

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 
Sanders, secretary-treasurer.

The Pelican 

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, 
sports editor. 



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 
literary standard. 

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.

Social News 

". . . 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 
this affair. 

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. 




Senior Ball 

''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. 




Junior Promenade 

"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 procedure. 

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 
of 14-6. 

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 
of prominence. 

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 college. 

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 
Martha Ostrander. 




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.

Senior Chatter 

It seems to be our last trip on the old bandwagon. It ought to bean entertaining ride, 
but interesting and intimate ballyhoo seems to be hard to find. It's the swan song for the 
old cliques, and a certain Mr. Louvis is a bit low because the Brunner-Power outfit won't 
be dining in state for many a day — we haven't had a tip on the elopements and secret 
marriages, but there's a Pell-Poppendick possibility — Mon Homme appears to be the 
theme song of the intelligentsia — Holman, Anderson, Bogert — all definitely attached — 
and of course Cliffie and Ruth Hornby any day now — success, my brave lassies — a few 
femmes we know are sad — no English sloshing this summer — no Leviathans — no orchestras 
— no — well, you can guess that all good things do end — our old pal Rice is developing the 
matrimonial outlook — here's mud in your eye, Frank — and Rutan and Weir and Thomas 
and Butterworth have solved the mysterious outburst of W. Shakespeare, ' frailty thy 
name is woman" — and then there's Bibs — starry-eyed and enchanted over — well, that's 
your problem — we could write ditties or, better still, lyrics to the Harding, Mair, Gorham 
alliance — it's a collegiate toss-up between those southern males from Duke or the metro- 
politans from Rutgers — we'll be old and feeble before long, and then over our pale dry 
we'll indulge in a keen reminiscence over Vogel's good nature and fascinating obesity — 
Shampansky's way of being your pal — the coiffeur of Miss Bennett — the stunning crea- 
tions of Miss Adams — the cute way Wilson and Gross smile — the cynicism of Jo Hoorn- 
beek and the quiet wit of Helme — Gordon's ties and Hunt's school spirit — Miss Sophie 
Tucker Totten — Irish Gardner and her brown-eyed pal, Lu Nelson — Glannon's prom 
trotting — Scherer's grin and Cahill's amours and Singer's smoothiness — Sayles feminine 
consistency — Patty Bingham's Lyon longing — Miss Mehrten's professional attitude — 
the Roemer-Nelson drama yen — Dooley's brain child, the A. A. — the Henning's com- 
placency — the Heath Mason-Dixon drawl — the royal conveyances of Reilly, Brittle, Mahr, 
Judelson plus Offringa's Rolls and Miss Elbow's Cadillac — Miss Daudt's sabatical year — 
our sincere and lasting hankering for Dr. Gage's wit, his New Yorker, his Buick, his stock 
stories, and that unmistakable odor of a Bobbie Burns panatella — can't you go on from 
here alone? — we feel the need for one of those O'Neill intermissions, some financial assist- 
ance, a job, a Packard, a leopard coat — but what the — Archie — One can always haunt 
houses or blow West — after all, my collegiannas, life is just a bowl of cherries — and in the 
distance do we hear you saying "aw nertz?" — 

compliments of the season Cleo
