y)edicalien In as much as our tenth annivetsary issue of the CADUCEUS is being published with the alumni in mind, it seems most appropriate that it be dedicated to an outstanding member of that body. Lovingly and ptoudly, thetefore, w e dedicate our 1954 C A D U C E U S to Lee Perry Vance, a member of the Class of 1940, w h o died in Korea November 14, 1952. Major Vance was born January 31, 1921, and upon his graduation from St. Luke's he enteted the United States Marine Corps, in which he served with great distinction for six years. In 1950 he was graduated from Johns Hopkins University, and shortly thereafter he was recalled to active duty and was sent to Korea. H e was buried in rhe Korean section at Arlington National Cemetery. At St. Luke's Lee was an outstanding athlete and was the recipient of both the Seniot Scholarship Award and the Loyalty Cup. In dedicating this book to Lee, w e realize that any honor w e might bestow upon him will be minute in comparison with that which he brought to his home, his school, and his country.

JOHN O. BLENGSLI Riverside Sentinel 3, 4.
Joining our illustrious crew in the tenth grade, Joe quickly became recognized as one of the outstanding personalities of the class, as his literary knowledge afforded us a source of constant amazement. His modesty has prevented us from seeing his o w n efforts at writingfiction,but w e k n o w that he has produced some works of great lengthâ€”something which might very possibly point to his future line of endeavor. A n accomplished classical pianist, Joe has often c o m e d o w n a few notches to play some "jazz" for our benefitâ€”performances in which he displayed the ability of a professional. This year he did a great job as Spotts Editor of the "Sentinel", and although he was primarily occupied with the coverage of athletic events, on several occasions he participated himself. In these efforts he showed an enthusiasm which should figure importantly in carrying him o n to greater things.
GRAYSON E. BROWN Stamford Athletic Committee 3, 4; C A D U C E U S 4; Baseball 2, 3, 4.
Over the four years of school that Grayson has been with us, he has done a ttemendous number of different jobs. H e has served most faithfully and creditably at the time-keeper's table at almost every basketball game for two seasons. The long hours of work at lining the football and baseball fields that Grayson has done have considerably lightened the burden of his fellow members of the Athletic Committee. In the classtoom he is a most sincere and willing student. Grayson has shown everyone a good-natured way of taking jokes with a laugh. Whenever a referee's whistle can be heard aftet school, Grayson can be found, for at almost every intramural g a m e he can be seen keeping the play within the rules. Certainly it will always be said of Grayson that he did his best in everything he undertook, which is the best that can be said of any man.
WILLIAM H. BUCKNELL Norwalk Athletic Committee 3, 4; Football 3, 4; CADUCEUS 4.
Bill can rightly be called the veteran of the class, as he will complete his tenth year at St. Luke's upon graduation this June. T w o of his outstanding featutes are his curly hair and his sincerity, the latter making him a wonderful companion over the years. His keen intelligence, although evident in classroom discussions, was usually brought to the fore at examination-time, when the n a m e Bucknell could often be found near the top of the list. Looking at Bill's sports career, w e see that he was chiefly noted for his foorball playing, for w h e n he was on the gridiron, nothing stopped him except the player w h o m he tackled or blocked. Bill's future life should be greatly facilitated both by his ability to lend a helping hand where needed, and, most of all, by his fortitudeâ€”which enables h i m to apply himself easily to whatever task might confront him.
DANIEL J. LYONS Norwalk Athletic Committee 4.
O n e of the two members of the class w h o came to the hilltop for his senior year, Dan, within a week, had become an "old" friend. Dan's silence concealed a keen sense of humor, which was discovered at oral theme time, when he would give self-composed orations, the humor of which was of the side-splitting variety. D a n was one of the few members of the class w h o possessed his o w n means of transportation, namely a '41 Ford, the envy of his classmates. D a n is a person w h o asks few favors and performs many, as he unhesitatingly undertakes any problems that might confront him. H e has the faculty of adding more to a conversation in two words than w e "longer-winded" individuals could in twenty. Despite his short stay at St. Luke's, D a n has convinced us that with his agreeable personality he will have no trouble with his undertakings in the years to come.
ALLEN C MARPLE Norwalk Athletic Committee 4; Football 2, 3, Capt. 4; Basketball 4; Baseball 4; Class Secretary 4.
Allen joined our ranks in rhe Freshman year. Since then he has become famous for his driving knees in foorball and his spontaneous humor in class. T h e joyous, excited cries from the spectators at one of the St. Luke's football games were often caused by one of Al's long runs, as he had an amazing yard-gaining ability. H e has done a great job as captain of this year's team. Allen, a m e m b e r of the Athletic Committee, has shown a pleasant willingness to do his share of the less rewarding work of preparing thefieldfor the games. Allen's merits are by no means limited to sports, for in class he is one of the most consistently well-prepared students. A s secretary of our class he performed the task of recording our many important decisions. T h e spirit, loyalty, and willingness with which Allen works should go far in helping him attain his desired object in life.
EARL W . McNULTY Norwalk Athletic Committee 3, Chairman 4; Dance Committee 3; Sentinel 4; C A D U C E U S 4; Senior Prom Committee, Chairman 4; Class Treasurer 4; Baseball manager 3.
Having joined our class back in thefifthgrade, Earl is one of its oldest members. Through his years at the hilltop he has displayed a very loyal and active interest in every one of the school's many activities. N o t the least of his functions has been his work on former dance committees, which served ro prepare him for his position as chairman of the Senior Prom Committee. Dances mean music, and music is Earl's forte. H e has, at present, an excellent radio show, which specializes in "Dixieland." H e also makes candid comments on new record releases on another professional show. Along with all his extracurricular activities "Mac" has established himself as one of the better students in his class. This zealous interest in everything, coupled with his ready smile and amazing argumentative ability, should carry Earl ro the very top in his chosen field.

Brains, athletic prowess, a fun-loving sense of humor, and extra-curricular work are the four things by which w e shall remember John. Taking them in order, w efind,first of all, an individual w h o was "tops" in all his subjects, especially Physics, where he took first honors. A s for the second trait, w e see the vatsity football quarterback and an outstanding guard on the basketballfive.As to his sense of humor, many were the Physics classes that were enlivened by his back-of-the-room lecture on the "differential." Looking at the fourth item, w efindthat John served as secretary of the Student Council and Associate Editor of the C A D U C E U S , while performing many other tasks in and around the school. Not previously mentioned is something which never fails to bring a smile to John's face. A s w e look back over the years, w e will recall h o w John Megrue drove to fame in a little red car.

"Skip's" popularity and respect among his classmates can be seen in the fact that he was class president from his Freshman through Senior years. "Skip" has proved ro us that a boisterous nature is not necessary for the intelligent solution of problems, as he has carried our his jobs as class president, Managing Editor of the CADUCEUS, and m e m b e r of the Athletic Committee quietly and efficiently. In class "Skip" ranked near the top, showing this same characteristic "quiet efficiency" in all his subjects. His main athletic achievements were on the footballfield,where his hard-driving tactics gained many a yard for Maroon and Gray foorball elevens. Outside of school he devotes m u c h of his time to sailingâ€”afieldwhich he might very possibly enter as a career. His diligent outlook on life should carry him a long way, whether it be on land or sea.
ARNOLD L. ROCHLIN Stamford Athletic Committee 4; Football 2, 3, 4 Basketball 3, 4; Baseball 2, 3, 4.
Arnie will long be remembered by his classmates, both for his conscientiousness and his scintillating wit. W e can honestly say that he made our journey through the years easier and more enjoyable, for no one could break the tension of a Physics discussion like Atnie, something which he did with remarks that could be considered highlights of our high school education. His conscientiousness was evinced both in the classtoom and on the athleticfield,whete he was a regular at tackle on the football team and at second base on the baseball team. H e aided the school in two ways during the year, by driving a school car and by being a hard-working m e m b e r of the infamous kitchen crew. W e will long remember Arnie for his optimistic outlook on life and his ability to assume tesponsibilityâ€” the latter being the primary requisite for the solurion of problems he will face in later life.
SHELDON T SHOFF, JR. Wilton Senior Prom Committee 4.
Sheldon, a real live rebel from Tennessee, has made an indelible mark in the memory of each of his classmates. A strong desire to make good and a store of witty remarks made him an instantaneous success upon entering our class in the fall of ourfinalyear. His display of loyalty to the South in chapel one morning w o n him the tespect of the whole school. A fund of administrative ability was uncovered when Sheldon was appointed a srudy hall proctor. H o w often his voice could be heard commanding silence of the students. There are three objects which shall always come to mind with memories of Sheldon: a set of distinguished eyeglasses, a well-worn "pork pie" hat, and his first pair of ice skates. In his position on the Senior Prom Committee Sheldon has shown a cheerful willingness to work, a trait that should bring grear happiness and success to him in the future.
BRUCE M. SMITH Stamford Athletic Committee 4; C A D U C E U S 4; Sentinel 4.
Bruce is mainly k n o w n for his outstanding scholastic recordâ€”something which was brought about by the process of conscientious studying. Atfitstglance one might gain the impression that Bruce is just a student and not m u c h else, but at closet inspection he would see that he performed many important functions in the school, such as serving as very capable Business Manager of the C A D U C E U S and being an industrious m e m b e r of the Athletic Association and a staff writer for the Sentinel. Bruce was rhe driver of a school car for two years, and he should receive m u c h credir for the way in which he kept his sometimes insolent passengers in line. In class, especially in the math coutses, Bruce has shown us that he is the possesor of a great sticktoitiveness, a quality which is an extremely valuable asset so early in life. Bruce and the future should get along well together.
ROBERT J. STONEHILL Norwalk Athletic Committee 4; Football Manager 3, 4; Baseball 2, 3, 4; C A D U C E U S 4.
A long-standing m e m b e r of the class, Robin has constantly been kidded about his loyal devotion to a major league baseball team that has made it a habit of disappointing its fans almost every October. His interest in baseball resulted in provoking many arguments, while his ability in that sport earned him a statting position on the varsity nine. Robin has often been the manager of teams on which he didn't participateâ€”jobs in which he displayed great competency. O n e of his ptimary interests outside class is cars, and he can tell the m a k e of a car a mile off, no matter where or by w h o m it was ptoduced. Although the classroom offered Robin no great difficulty, he seemed to show his greatest interesr in Economicsâ€”an inclination which points to the fact that he will probably enter the business world, where he should have no trouble in becoming successful.
RICHARD M. STRAUSS Stamford Student Council 1, 2, 3, Chairman 4; Sentinel 2, Editor 3, 4; CADUCEUS, Editor 4; Senior Prom Committee 4; Class Vicepresident 4; Football 3, 4; Basketball 3, 4; Baseball 2, 3, 4.
Richard is probably the most highly tespected m e m b e r of our class. H e was not only the editor of rhe yearbook but also of our school paper, the "Sentinel". H e is k n o w n for his ability for writing, and his greatest achievement came along that line when he w o n a Freedoms Foundation awatd in 1953 for one of his "Sentinel" editorials. A fine athlete, he participated in the three major sports in both his junior and senior years and has always upheld the St. Luke's tradition of good sportsmanship. A s president of the Student Council Rich petformed a wonderful job in making that body something more than a disciplinary board. Despite these many activities he found time fot his studies and was rated number one on the scholastic list. His vital interest in everything at St. Luke's has formed in our minds the highest expectations for him in his future endeavors.
Ode ta me J^uciy jm/iteen
W e call ourselves the Lucky Thirteen.
The last of the M squad is Johnnie Megrue,
We're quite a bunch, as w e know you have seen.
A likable guy w h o knows just what to do.
A s into the world w e are ready to pass,
H e resists certain knowledge at the greatest of costs,
W e leave this ode for the next seniot class.
But can lecture for hours on dual" exhausts.
Beginning with B, (we have no A's)
Eighth is Frank Raymond, usually "Skip".
Comes Joe-^ or J o h n â€” Blengsli from out of the haze.
With capstans and sails he's really a pip.
Though his theories on life are uncommonly weird,
Though schooling for him has little appeal,
He's honest, and harmless, and nor to be feared.
He'll make a great admiral. That's h o w w e feel.
Second in line is Grayson E. Brown,
Big "Arnie" Rochlin is simply a riot.
W h o s e worldly deeds are the talk of the town.
Y o u can't be as funny; don't even try it.
For many an error he's taken much blame,
W e just laugh and w e laugh and w e laugh 'till we're sore.
But w e know he'll achieve just "oodles" of fame.
Then, to make this line thyme, w e will laugh even more.
Ending the B's is Willie Bucknell,
Proceeding to S in our aggregation,
W h o , m u c h like a turtle, lives in a shell.
W e have a young lad from the south of the nation.
Since his manners arefineand his speech is superior,
He's Sheldon T. Shoff, who, may w e repeat
While graced with his presence w e feel quite inferior.
Is the best-natuted "Rebel" w e ever did meet.
From B ro L is a rather large step,
N u m b e r two of four S's is a c o m m o n old Smith,
But the m a n of that letter's a picture of pep.
W h o s e manners to us seem rather a myth.
His stay on the hill showed by various signs
We'll praise all his virtues and won't tell why he
Thar a smashing success will be young Danny Lyons.
Is the uncommonest Smith w e ever did see.
We have three big M's, all worthy young men.
Second to last is an unusual being,
Thefirsris Al Marple, the equal of ten.
For two straight defeats don't help him in seeing
His favorite expression is, "You wanna fight?"
That the Dodgers are hopeless; they're bound nor to win,
His most frequent answer is, "Go fly a kite".
But Stonehill is stubborn; he'll never give in.
Next on our list is a radio star.
Last of our group is an out-and-out "brain"
He'll go a long way, though w e can't guess h o w far.
W h o , somehow or other, just can'r refrain
N o , ir's not Arthur Godfrey or John Henry Faulk,
From admitting his virtues pile up to the sky.
It's Earl Q. McNulty, the pride of Norwalk.
He's yours truly, the author, a real modest guy.
We've come to the end. We're ready to go. Our thanks to those w h o have helped us so. Though we'll pass on to bigger things, w e must confess, Our hearts will turn back to our school, S. L. S.
Classk Ten of the thirteen members of our present class were with us on opening day back in 1950, and w e are proud to say that since then w e have become a friendly and well-organized unit. The veteran of this group is Bill Bucknell, who, upon graduation, will terminate his tenth and final year as a student at St. Luke's. As w e came up the hill on that Septembet morning in '50, our minds were those of eighth graders, but w e soon began to attain a slight sense of maturity under our n e w title "freshmen". College to us seemed no more than an indefinite word is a hazy future, and w e thought little of the proximity of the day that n o w conftonts us. T h e main reason for our lack of foresight was that w e were, at the time occupied with more enjoyable rhings, such as driving Mr. Graves out of his mind. Never will w e forget the day in French I, when he became so fed up with our stupidity that he dismissed himself from our presence. This was one of our earliest inducements to study. Richard Strauss was our representative on the Student Council, as well as the honor roll. It was in that year that "Skip" Raymond was fitst elected president of the class, a title which he never relinquished. Ourfirstfew class meetings reflected the adolescence of our characters, but as the year progressed, w e learned to control ourselves. For the most part, w e hadn't yet become aware of the opposite sex, and Bucknell was the only regular supporter of the school dances. The rest of us, Marple, Megrue, M c Nulty, Brown, Stonehill, Raymond, Smith, and Rochlin, not heeding the scholastic example of Strauss or the social example of Bucknell, skipped along our carefree way, anxiously awaiting summer vacation. W h e n w e returned ro school in the fall of '51, w e became aware of our position in the school and began to act accordingly. Brown was displaced as thefitston the alphabetical list of the class by the advent of Joe Blengsli. Raymond, Marple, and Rochlin played varsity football and saw quite a bit of action. Eatl McNulty m a d e his inconspicuous debut on the Athletic C o m mittee and joined Strauss on rhe Student Council. Bruce Smith began giving Strauss competition along scholastic lines, as both of those fellows made the Honor Roll. As the year wore on, it became k n o w n that Rochlin was no whiz at Biology, and he was dismissed from that class various and sundry times. Al Marple sharpened his boxing ability by directing his punches at an illustrious m e m b e r of the junior class. W h e n winter and basketball came, John Megrue made that team, and during the course of the season he hooped in two points for rhe sophomore class. Winter produced a rather amusing incident, as the class went skating one lunch period, overlooking the fact there wasn'r any ice. A few minutes after the afternoon classes had begun the sophomore class made their appearance in various srates of makeshift dress. In the beginning of the N e w Year Grayson Brown became thefirstm e m b e r of the class to attain a driver's license. In English w e read and enjoyed "Silas Marner", and m a n y of us were rather confused by the latter parr of Algebra II. Baseball saw Strauss establish himself at third base, making the team along with Stonehill, Rochlin and Brown. W e settled d o w n to work and managed to weather thefinals,after which w e began to look forward to summer vacation and the following fall, w h e n w e would be one rung from the top of the ladder of college preparation.
September, 1952, anothet year, more responsibilities. Strauss became editor of the "Sentinel", the second time in the school's history that a junior had secured that position. Before the year was out he was to win a Freedoms Foundation editorial award, making it two consecutive years for S.L.S. McNulty and Strauss continued in office on the Student Council, while the former was also a member of the Dance and Athletic Committees. Brown and Bucknell were also members of the Athletic Committee, and Blengsli aided Strauss in the sports department of the "Sentinel". Raymond, Megrue, Bucknell, Strauss, McNulty, Marple, and Rochlin saw plenty of action during the football season. As for studies, w e read " R o m e o and Juliet" in English, were exposed to some rather abstruse theorems in Plane Geometty, took American History, and were taken by French III. The license club had by this time increased to considetable proportions; thus most of us had assumed a new responsibility. After Christmas vacation Megtue established himself as a basketball starter, as he made the team along with Rochlin and Sttauss. Midyears came and went, and before w e knew it, spring vacation was upon us. That spring, w h e n w e weren't puffing away on our briar pipes, w e were engaged in physical combat with the seniors, a sport in which w e always seemed to come out on the "sore" end. W e waded through "King Lear" and the "House of Seven Gables", contributed Strauss, Rochlin, and Stonehill to the staffing baseball nine, weathered finals, attended commencement, and were told that w e were seniors. Having suddenly been faced with the shocking reality of it all, w e assumed an attitude that befitted oui title and began to look with enthusiasm toward the task that lay before us. The "lucky thirteen" was founded out by the advent of Norwalk's D a n Lyons, w h o soon proved himself the possesor of an extremely subtle wit, and Dixie's o w n Sheldon Shoff, also a great humorist, but not quite so subtle as his compatriot, Lyons. Sttauss became ptesident of the Student Council and editor of the C A D U C E U S , resuming his "Sentinel" editotship, while McNulty gained the chairmanships of the Athletic and Senior Prom Committees. Megrue and McNulty were the other two seniors elected to the Student Council. W e contributed M e gtue, Raymond, Sttauss, Rochlin, and Marple to the starting football team, the latter being elected captain. W e didn't need the "law of harmony" from Economics to learn that "Macbeth" and "Trig" just don't mix. Megrue, Rochlin, and Mr. Skully shared the burden of instructing the Physics class. Sheldon Shoff wrore his o w n page in S.L.S. histoty, w h e n he stood up in chapel one morning to the rune "Dixie", his "national anthem". Midyears came, and everyone passed everything, a "first" for St. Luke's senior classes. Megrue and Strauss playedfirst-stringbasketball, while Raymond, Marple, and Rochlin saw secondary action. Brown and Blengsli participated in the capacity of scorer and reporter. Spring vacation, word from colleges (triumph or tragedy),finals,the Senior Prom, commencement, and it's all over. These four years have really been wonderful, and as w e trudge up higher hilltops, w e will never forget the vital part that St. Luke's played in converting us ftom adolescent boys to responsible men.

Juniet CI&ass W e , the junior class of St. Luke's, in a few short months will become the seniors of '55; it is, thetefote, a necessity, but more a pleasure, to introduce you to the members of our illustrious class. Although w e have brought about the reputation of being the "happy boys", w e sincerely hope that w e will take the honored position of being one of the best senior classes in St. Luke's history. Here w e are: Hal Bloch, whose appearance "glows" of collegiate taste; King Birdsall, valiant defender of his car from the sneers of unbelievers; Dick Dawson, Srudent Council m e m b e r diligentius and class V.P.; T i m Eland, class candidate for Parliament; Mike Flaherty, nice guy, w h o wants desperately tofindthe Center of a circle; B o b Fogle, glowing with art aptitude; Rich Gilbert, whose laugh has become a St.

Well, there w e are; as you can see, w e are a diversified class, and w e should certainly leave our mark in the St. Luke's sands of time. In closing w e would like to wish the best to the class of '54, with the hope that w e can follow the fine example they set.

Sentinel The "St. Luke's Sentinel" has always been a very fine publication, and this year's staff, headed by editot Richard Strauss, w h o held that position for two years, has m a d e every effort to uphold the fine reputation that the paper has earned. The trend over the past few years has been to more issues of the paper—something which is m a d e possible by having fewer pages in each edition, thus keeping the news more up-to-date. O n the next two pages can be found some of the typical headlines and parts of different articles that have been contained in the "Sentinel" during the past decade. In the early years of the paper it was printed by a press in N e w Canaan, but recently the job has been done by the "Datien Review" press, w h o have shown fine co-operation in printing the paper.
Looking at some of the highlights of past years, w e see that the "Sentinel" has m a n y times w o n recognition ftom the Columbia Scholastic Press and that it received Freedoms Foundation awards in 1952 and 1953, in the former case as a resulr of an editorial by editor Robert Tyler, '52, and the latter coming in recognition of an editorial by Richard Strauss. M u c h credit should go to editor Strauss, assistant editor and prospective editor Michael Zales, sports editor Joe Blengsli, business manager B o b Salomon, and staff writers Earl McNulty, Robin Sunde, Richard Dawson, Bruce Smith, T h o m a s Clarke, Blair Rubel, and John Byers. Finally thanks should be given to Mr. Graves, faculty adviser, whose tireless and effective supervision has been so indispensable.

[/adu uceus This being the tenth anniversary of the yearbook, w e have endeavored to include in this edition features of previous books, as well as highlights in and around the school of the past decade. There is no doubt that over the years the C A D U C E U S has shown, from issue to issue, a marked improvement, until it has n o w reached the point whete it is a trulyfinepublicationâ€” a development due to a combination of the conscientious work of both the senior classes of the past years and M r . R a y m o n d S. Pearsall, our faculty advisor, without whose expert advice the book could not have possibly attained its present high quality. In this book w e have retained most of the ideas of the last few years, plus the introduction of a class poem, all-time teams and records in the spotts section, the
use of the best "dividers" from previous years, and finally, and probably most important, an alumni directory. This item was an object of m u c h work on the part of the staff, its main purpose being to inform the alumni as to the whereabouts of their former classmates, as a directoty will be sent to each alumnus whose name is contained therein. Richard Strauss was the editor of this book, while John Megtue and "Skip" R a y m o n d were associate editor and managing editor respectively. T h e business department, headed by Bruce Smith, constituted Grayson Brown, Robin Stonehill, and Bill Bucknell. Earl McNulty was photography editor. W e of '54 sincerely hope that you ate afforded many enjoyable and nostalgic moments by this tenth issue of the CADUCEUS.

Student (jounci/ M a n y congratulations must be extended to the Student Council of '54, for they have set one of the finest examples of a governing body in the history of St. Luke's. The Council this year was made up of a group of students w h o could not have'been mote qualified for the positions to which they were elected. Richard Strauss, the all-around senior, was Chairman of the Council, and with him as their leader, the boys worked in close harmony, so that all problems which fell under their province were solved with ease. John Megrue did an efficient job as secretary, and Earl McNulty was the other senior to assert his able leadership. Richard D a w s o n and Michael Zales were the two hand-picked juniors, w h o made their class an excellently represented one. Blair Rubel and Thomas Clarke from the sophomores were most capable study hall proctors, and their
suggestions were of great aid, as were those of every member. T h e freshmen were represented by Pierre Pelanne, w h o immediately took his place a m o n g the nucleus of leadets of St. Luke's, proving his ability to assume important responsibilities. The Council did a remarkable job in its various activitiesâ€”keeping study halls otderly, curbing the delinquent students, and most of all sponsoring a most successful Student Council Christmas Dance, which will rank as one of the most enjoyable and well-attended dances the school has ever witnessed. M a n y thanks must be rendered to this governing body, for the Student Council, performing its necessary functions in the school, has m a d e its presence felt and appteciated by all.

Mietk Committee Again this year the Athletic Committee has carried out its duties of supplementing the athletic teams to near perfection. The value of this organization to both the school teams and the school in general is inestimable, as each year the functions of the group become more diverse. Originally the one and only job of the committee was to keep the athleticfieldin good condition. N o w the committee, in addition to keeping the football and baseballfieldsin shape, cares for the behind-the-school basketball equipment, coaches the younger athletes a little, helps arrange and run the annual Field D a y events, referees all the intra-mural games, and sees to the renting of gymnasiums for basketball games and practices. T o carry out these various tasks a committee of fifteen boys was appointed by the Student Council. Its
membership consisted of Earl McNulty, chairman, John Megrue, Frank Raymond, Bill BucknelL D a n Lyons, Allen Marple, Bruce Smith, Grayson Brown, Arnold Rochlin, Robin Stonehill, B o b Salomon, B o b Fogle, Mike Zales, Dick Dawson, and Blair Rubel. Perhaps the most important function that the Athletic Committee has assumed this-year was the refereeing of all the intramural games. Being a good, unbiased teferee is one of the most difficult things in the world of sports, but the boys on the committee have done very well at it. T h e most important single event in each year's inttamural competition is the Field Day, which requires much preparation on the part of the committee. A world of thanks should go to these boys w h o gave the school so m u c h of their time in the form of hard work.

SeniM P&om Committee the committee's considetation, both capable of supplying excellent music. A good band is instrumental in making a good dance, and such a band is.the aim of the committee. T h e Schmidts will be on hand to m a k e their usual fine offerings along the refreshment line. The committee expects a large number of alumni to be present at this occasion to greet the newcomers to their ranks, the class of '54. Being the final event of the school year, it is usually the last time that the seniors are assembled under one roof. All in all, it should be a wonderful affair, and those that attend will certainly be gtatified that they did so, as it is the desire of this year's committee to bring the music, decorations, and refreshments to a peak never before attained by any Senior Prom.
The last and indeed the most enjoyable social event of each school year is the Senior Prom. It is the most gala social function of the year, and it is predicted that this year it will be bigget and better than ever before. Each year the senior class elects from its o w n ranks a Senior P r o m Committee. Five very capable boys were elected to this group from the class of 1954â€”Earl McNulty, w h o was unanimously voted chairman, Sheldon Shoff, John Megrue, Frank Raymond, and Richard Strauss. At the time when this article was written the committee had just had thefitstof its long discussions about the theme of the dance. Whatever theit final choice is, w e can rest assured that the theme will be good, whether it be gay "Paris" or old N e w Orleans. At present there seem to be two top-flight bands under

vafisity jectlall Although the St. Luke's football tecord showed only one victory in five tries, the season w a s m a r k e d by hard and exciting play, and coach Cibere deserves m u c h credit for his usual fine job of rounding a good team into shape. T h e team faced the toughest schedule in many-a-year and did considerably better than the record m i g h t indicate. T h e first t w o g a m e s resulted in setbacks, the fitst being a 32-0 defeat by a supetiot Fieldston eleven, a g a m e played in N e w Y o r k City o n the latter's h o m e field, and the second being a m o r e evenly played match, Brunswick finally winning late in the g a m e o n a break-away run, 13-6. This g a m e w a s to have a strong bearing o n the league title. St. Luke's n o w invaded St. Peter's at Peekskill and returned the victor by a 25-14 count in a one-sided
affair which saw the Saints roll to an early 18-0 lead. Marple and Salomon paved the w a y for the win, pacing the powerful M a t o o n and Gray ground attack. In their fourth straight road g a m e the Hilltoppers traveled to Poughkeepsie, where they m e t and statistically outplayed O a k w o o d . T h e Saints led b y 2-0 at the half, but a third-quarter pass play and a final-period interception spelled defeat for the visitors, 12-2. T h e final g a m e of the season, and the Saints' only h o m e encounter, s a w a powerful Millbrook eleven grab an early 12-0 lead by twice recovering fumbles deep in M a r o o n and G r a y territory a n d rolling to scores. T h e Hilltoppers'firsteffective offensive c a m e in the fourth quarter, only to b e stopped inside the visitors' twenty. Millbrook w e n t o n to score their third touchdown, winning the contest 19-0.

vafisity Bashtlall This year's team, as those of the past two yeats, has been coached by Bill Vornkahl, and, as those of the past, has done very well, with five wins and two losses at the moment. Practice sessions started early in D e cember, and there were many fine candidates trying out for the team. The "cuts" were made, and the squad n o w has fourteen members. T o open the season the Saints traveled to Stamford, where they were defeated in a thrilling contest by Daycroft, 48-46, inexperience being the main factot in the St. Luke's defeat. T h e team, during the next few weeks, hit its stride, defeating King School, 34-27, and Edgewood, 58-28, both games being played on opposition courts. T h e following week the Saints, in theirfirsth o m e game, lost a heattbreaker to Brunswick, 33-32, as the visitors
w o n with a dramatic basket in thefinalsecond. T h e Hilltoppers, improving steadily, returned to winning ways, conquering Edgewood for the second time, 58-35, and Cherry Lawn, 54-40. T h e second contest against King was a closer match, but the Saints petsevered, winning 47-42. The team this year has played well as a unit, as well as individually. Center B o b Salomon has been the leading scorer, while Salmon, Strauss, and Peterson have played a good brand of ball at the forward positions. John Megrue, the steady leader of the team, has shated the guard positions with Blair Rubel. Others, Raymond, Flaherty, Sunde, Matple, White, Rochlin, and Ed Smith, have contributed m u c h to the team's success. Ctedit should go to the team and Mr. Vornkahl for theirfinedefense of twice-won championships.

vaftsity Baselall W i t h quite a few of last year's members returning to the squad, the genetal outlook for this coming baseball season is rathet optimistic. W e can, however, only m a k e predictions, for, as most of you know, the yearbook goes to press far in advance of the opening practice. There seems to be a strong possibility that this year's infield will hold up well, for most of last year's players are returning. Bob Salomon will probably start at first base, while Arnie Rochlin and Robin Stonehill will be competing equally for the second base spot. Pete Salmon, last yeat's leading hitter, will probably play shortstop, and Richatd Strauss is the likely choice for third base, having held that position since his sophomore year. Robin Sunde, w h o proved his merits behind the plate last year, will do the catching. T h e pitching spot will be coach Mara's main headache, for no out-
standing prospects for that position are returning; however, thete will be several newcomers trying out for the team, one of w h o m might very possibly gain that position. T h e outfield will be an open race, as Dick D a w s o n is the only returning starter. Blair Rubel mightfillone of the outfield spots, but this phase of the team will be decided by the many candidates w h o will be fighting forfirst-stringberths, m a n y of w h o m seem rather promising. Last year bad weather at the beginning of the season, limiting considerably practice sessions, and injuries in key positions hindered the team ftom getting off to a good start, thus ruining their chances of securing a league title. If these hindtances do not recur, there seems a good chance that "Mara's Marauders" will end up on top. 54

Junie/l jeetlall Spectators at the junior football games wete offered a combination of lots of good football and some equally good laughs. "Pearsall's Midgets" have long since become a tradition at St. Luke's, as each year Mr. Pearsall manages to put a bunch of eager participants on the field, w h o proceed to tear into each other with all the vim and vigor of major league football players. T o instill in the boys the fundamentals of the g a m e is one of the main objects of junior football, and manya-fall afternoon M r . Pearsall's charges can be seen going thtough their systematic drills involving blocking, tackling, et cetera. T h e fact that some of these
fundamentals might be discarded during a g a m e doesn't really m a k e any difference, for it just goes to provide for an afternoon of enjoyment for both players and spectators. Although the juniors had five games scheduled, two were cancelled because of rain, but three games were played, out of which number the Maroons w o n two. In thefirstcontest the Maroons, led by halfback Jeff Hall, solidly trounced their opponents, 26-0. T h e other backs, Zunino, Herzog, and Skinner also contributed to the Maroon victory. T h e Grays, seeking revenge after this defeat, in the second contest m a d e a considerably

better showing but lost again, this time by a 13-0 score. Still not detetred the Grays, fighting back in the third game, finally tasted victory. Led by the "four horsemen", Sherwood, Flatow, Jorden, and Bruce Baggaley, the latter scoring the touchdowns for the victors, the Grays w o n 13-6. Since everyone w h o tried out for this football was anxious to play and all did a cteditable job w h e n they did participate, w e should mention on the Maroons Addie Moore, Gilroy, McGourty, Dixon, and Fairlamb; on the Grays, Pearsall, Leeds, Olivetti, and all the rest.
So this is the story of the football competition between the membets of the two rival teams from the lower grades in school. It is interesting to watch a youngster, with the proper coaching, develop his talents as he passes through the ranks, finally to emerge as a varsity player. Already one can foresee the athletic future of such young fellows as Bruce Baggaley and Jeff Hall, who, at their early age, are already showing signs of "finesse"; however, this is really not the main object. T h e boys play the g a m e and enjoy it. That is what counts.
