H EN R Y LAW RENCE C R EH AN For many years ^ probably more than be will w ant us to recall ^ Mr. C reban bas served bis school witb a stout beart and a genuine enthusiasm.

His decision to retire from our faculty to enjoy tbe life of

“un gentilhomme de loisir� came as a surprise to all of us, b u t we do know be deserves it well

<an d so we say not

good-bye but au revoir .


"J-J” is our language teacher. W hether we "sprechen" or "parlons" or hablainos" or "loquimur,” Mr. Arling is there to tell us where the umlaut, the cedilla, the tilde or the macron belongs. Be­ sides he tells the best stories a fellow needs to make his social repertoire a success. JEAN-JACQUES AR LIN G N ew York University University of Chicago Sorbonne

This year Mr. Asch has taken over the social studies H e has proved his versatility by the extremely proficient m anner in which he has kept us Dwightonians alert to things past, present and future. Besides he is to be con­ gratulated on his keen counselling of the D w ightonian and the D ebating Club. IR V IN G S. ASCH University of M innesota

W e are glad to welcome Mr. Curry back to the D w ight faculty. H is aus­ terity gives us the proper sense of dig­ nity we need. Besides he has been most gracious in instructing our equestrians. G R E G O R Y T. C U R RY St. Jo h n ’s University

W e have the greatest admiration for Mr. Hurry. T he way in which he tries to penetrate our impermeable skulls with the necessary sines and cosines is a real art. Besides he takes such a kind and fatherly interest in all of us.

Mr. Jones is the true "English m aster’’ of our school. W hen we sit in his classes we can imagine ourselves in the halls of an Eton or a Harrow. Besides he is the "perfectest of monitors” on the fourth floor. T H EO D O R E JONES University of London

Mr. Keim, an alumnus of Dwight, came to us this year to coach our bas­ ketball team to victory, the finals in the A.A.P.S. Besides he won the hearts of all of us by his genuine sense of good fellowship. H O W A R D KEIM Lehigh University


A fter a year’s leave of absence, Mr. Murray returned to the hallowed halls of Dwight, bringing w ith him the zip and zing of a "downeaster.” H is homely philosophy and his Yankee astuteness enhance him in our eyes. Besides he sees that our library is there to fill our literary needs. H A R O LD J. M U R R A Y Columbia University

\ N o student at D w ight who is lucky enough to study the advanced sciences will ever forget Mr. Myron.

Mr. Putney is the teacher who thinks we know more than we do. H e tries us out on nursery rhymes, mathematics, geography, and all sorts of quiz pro­ grams — all under the aegis of English. Besides he is our respected director of dramatics. HA R O LD B. PU T N E Y Curry School of Expression University of Vermont Columbia University

Dr. Smither is a new m ember of the D w ight faculty. H e teaches us the rudi­ m ents of life — "bio — and those things that give life balance — "equa­ tions.” Sorry, but he hasn’t been with us long enough for a "Besides— DR. A. G A R N E T T SM ITHER College of W illiam and Mary McGill University
