Rider Sends Layoff Notices To Westminster Faculty, Spurring Union to Take Action
With the potential sale of Westminster Choir College (WCC) still pending, Rider University sent layoff notices last week to Westminster’s teaching staff informing them that the music school could close if the transaction does not go through. Despite a letter to the University community from Rider president Gregory Dell’Omo stating that the notice was provided only “as part of a larger process intended to secure the future of WCC,” the Rider chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) isn’t buying it. The chapter responded this week with an open letter to Dell’Omo asking that the University “change direction” from a plan to sell Westminster, with which it merged in 1992, to an unnamed, for-profit company that operates K-12 schools in Asia. (See this week’s Mailbox for the full text of the letter.) At a press conference held on the Westminster campus last Thursday, Rider sociology professor and AAUP chief negotiator Jeffrey Halpern said the chapter intends to file a grievance within the next few weeks. The press conference was held following separate meetings held by Dell’Omo, Dean of Westminster College of the Arts Marshall Onofrio, Rider Board Chair Robert Schimeck, and lawyer Mark Solomon, with faculty and students. The group also met with parents of Westminster students this past Saturday during the Choir College’s parents’ weekend. Rider has posed narratives that the AAUP chapter thinks are incorrect and need to be challenged. Contrary to the University’s reports that it is seeking to sell Westminster in anticipation of a $10 to $14 million deficit, an audit “has nothing in it that says that,” said Halpern. “The giant deficit they talk about is always ‘one year away.’” As for the suggestion that Westminster has been a financial burden for Rider, “This is also untrue,” said Halpern. “It is a music school, and music schools are never going to be sources of major cash for any institution. But this is not the source of any deep deficits. In the past two years, Westminster has had a small surplus. This college is at full enrollment, and has very strong donor support. We are not in dire straits.” Another disputed narrative is that the layoff is merely a simple transition in

Behrend, Deutsch, Tuck-Ponder Win School Seats Voters elected Beth Behrend with 3,199 votes, Jess Deutsch with 2,983 votes, and Michele Tuck-Ponder with 2,773 votes on Tuesday to fill available seats for three-year terms on the Princeton Board of Education, according to unofficial results at press time. Joining the Princeton Municipal Council in January for three-year terms will be Democrats David Cohen and Leticia Fraga, winning 5,604 and 5,570 votes respectively in their unopposed campaigns. Current Council members Bernie Miller and Jo Butler will be stepping down on January 1. Also-rans in the School Board race included Jenny Ludmer with 2,118 votes, Julie Ramirez with 2,051 votes and James Fields with 1,192 votes. In the race to succeed Chris Christie as New Jersey governor, Democrat Phil Murphy handily defeated Republican Kim Guadagno 48,144 to 26,014, with 93 percent of the districts having reported at press time. Five other candidates on the ballot each received less than one percent of the vote. In Princeton, Murphy’s margin of victory was 5,599 to 1,277 over Guadagno. In the 16th legislative district Democratic challenger Laurie Poppe, with 5,356 votes for State Senate unseated incumbent Republican Christopher “Kip” Bateman, who received 1,477 votes. In the hotly-contested race for two State Assembly positions, Democratic incumbent Andrew Zwicker successfully defended his seat with 5,660 votes, while Democrat Roy
Freiman won the second Assembly position with 5,480 votes. Republicans Donna Simon and Mark Caliguire fell short, with 1,259 and 1,238 votes respectively. Zwicker and Freiman won handily in Princeton voting with 5,670 and 5,480 respectively, to 1,259 votes for Simon and 1,235 votes for Caliguire. Winners in the race for Mercer County Board of Chosen Freeholders were Democratic incumbents John A. Cimino with 53,137 votes and Lucylle R.S.Walter with 52,167 votes, while also-rans included Republicans Jeff Hewitson and Michelle Noone. John “Jack” Kemler, a Democrat, was
voted in for another term as Mercer County Sheriff, defeating Republican Charles “Chuck” Farina by a margin of 54,756 votes to 23,776 votes. New Jersey voters approved both Public Questions on the ballot, one a state bond issue to provide grants to public libraries and the second allocating state revenue from legal settlements on environmental contamination to restore and protect natural resources in the state. Princeton voters voted overwhelmingly in favor of both.
With 1,620 students, 200 over capacity, at Princeton High School (PHS); John Witherspoon Middle School 100 over capacity; elementary schools full; and further growth predicted at all levels; Princeton Public Schools (PPS) are planning a facilities referendum for next year. “We need to prepare, and we need to prepare now,” said PPS Superintendent Steve Cochrane. Proposed expansion could include a three-story addition at PHS, a new community school for fifth and sixth grades at
the Valley Road site, upgrades at all six schools, a new space for administration and transportation, space for a preschool center, and possibly plans for a future elementary school. The referendum vote by the community is tentatively anticipated for September 2018, following submission of initial plans to the State Department of Education in March with construction beginning in the spring of 2019 and completed by that fall. It is driven partly by growing

Nonprofit Group Files Plans To Renovate Robeson House When historian Shirley Satterfield leads tours of the Witherspoon- Jackson neighborhood, she makes it a point to stop at five sites related to actor and activist
Paul Robeson. One of them is Robeson’s birthplace, a simple house at 110 Witherspoon Street. “What amazes me,” Satterfield said this week, “is how many people never heard of Paul Robeson — even students from Princeton University.”

This is a landmark and a treasure, so we will have commercial-grade systems to make sure that it is here for the next 100 years.” The home is at the corner of Witherspoon and Green streets. Originally a double house, it served as a rooming house after the That should change once Robesons moved out when the house is turned into Paul was nine, Satterfield a p er m a ne nt t r ibute to said. “It is extremely imporContinued on Next Page Robeson’s life and legacy, as well as a community resource and gathering place. A nonprofit group known as The Paul Robeson House has filed an application with the town of Princeton for historic preservation and zoning approval. Efforts to raise $1 million for the project are underway, but a major campaign will be launched once approvals are obtained. The house dates from the 1850s or slightly earlier, said architect and former Borough Councilman Kevin Wilkes, who, like Satterfield, is on the group’s board of directors. The nonprofit will manage the site. “Use of the building will change from a single family residence to a business use for our nonprofit on the first floor and ground floor,” he said. “Residential use will continue on the second floor. We do need a variance to get that approved.” The ground floor will be a gallery open to the public, telling the history of the Robeson family and the Witherspoon Presbyterian Church, where Robeson’s father was pastor. According to the group’s website, the site will serve as an “open house for the discussion, review and resolution of concerns in the WitherspoonJackson neighborhood with special emphasis on resident concerns, immigration issues, cultural, and social services.” There will be two offices on the first floor, plus a 500 -square-foot meeting room that can be rented by other nonprofits. The second floor apartments will have a separate entrance. Wilkes said the building will undergo a significant

tant because Paul Robeson and his father were such noted and respected people in the community.” Satterfield’s grandmother, a teacher, taught Robeson in primary school. The singer, actor, lawyer, and activist was born in 1898 and died in 1976. His birthplace is “a good quality building, but it is not an architectural gem,” said Wilkes. “It is completely significant because of its social and cultural history and the people who lived there. It is a place of primary importance in the history of the neighborhood.” Approval could take six months. “Construction will be dependent on fundraising,” said Wilkes. “We have a little less than 10 percent in the bank today. We’re looking to raise $1 million to fund construction and a modest endowment to maintain the building going forward.” —Anne Levin

An arrest has been made in the Santander Bank robbery that occurred on October 26 in Princeton. Detectives investigating the incident developed information through witnesses who recognized the suspect, now identified as a 50-year-old resident of Hillsborough. Information from Princeton detectives was rev iewed along with other information that came as a result of a multi-agency effort between Princeton Police, Franklin Township Police, Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office, Hillsborough Police, and the FBI. These investigative efforts culminated with the arrest of the suspect without incident by Princeton detectives and officers from the aforementioned agencies on a traffic warrant in the parking lot of Applebee’s restaurant in Hillsborough on Friday, November 3, at 7:34 p.m. The suspect has since been charged by Princeton Police with the Santander Bank robbery. ——— On November 1, at 10:35 p.m., a 21-year-old male f r o m H i l l s b or o u g h w a s charged with possession of a CDS and drug paraphernalia subsequent to a motor vehicle stop on State Road for unclear plates. On November 1, at 10:35 p.m., a 22-year-old male from Princeton was charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia subsequent to a motor vehicle stop on State road for unclear plates. Unless otherwise noted, individuals arrested were later released.
“I see a lot of new faces. People come and go. Also, the building has changed over the years and there are new condos above the store with new tenants.” —Hoss Lullabies, D’Angelo Italian Market, Princeton
“There are changes in good ways. Princeton is a very welcoming and a safe community. You see a lot of developments being built around family housing. I believe it has changed for the better in the four years since the Princeton Township and Princeton Borough Police Departments merged. Becoming one police department has been beneficial.” —Jorge Narvaez, Princeton Police Department
“It has become more commercialized.” —William Mitchell, Princeton
“I’ve been here for 17 years, and on the positive side, we have a lot more restaurants and dining choices. The energy of the town is fantastic. It’s also livelier.” —Anthony Klockenbrink, Princeton

Planning Board Approves Bike Plan, Removes West Drive From Master Plan The Princeton Planning Board voted unanimously last Thursday night to adopt Princeton’s first official Bike Mobility Plan. “After many decades of patient pushing, and two long years of intensive civic engagement, history was made,” the Princeton Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC) announced. Councilman Tim Quinn, who is also a Plan n ing Board member and liaison to the BAC, described the landmark decision as “the most significant milestone in our efforts to put pedestrians and cyclists in Princeton on the same footing as motorists.” He continued, “This articulates our aspirations as a community to be a place where people can choose multiple means of transportation — a significant step in building a bike and pedestrian culture in Princeton,” he said. Adoption of the Bike Mobility Plan into the Circulation Element of the Municipal Master Plan does not mean that the Bike Plan recommendations will all necessarily be implemented — they are goals or recommendations for the Council to consider. But Quinn pointed out, “This decision sets us on a course where we can achieve a balance. We’re i ncre as i ngly aware t hat we’re not the car-dominated culture that we once were. Increasingly people who live in this town prefer to walk or bike around town.” In reviewing some of the recommendations of the Bike Plan, Quinn noted that t he eng ineer ing consu l tants’ report revealed that many more people said they would take up biking if they felt safe. The BAC cited the adoption of the Bike Plan as “a huge development for sustainable transportation in Princeton,” and BAC Chair Janet Heroux added, “What’s also really positive is that the Planning Board agreed to adopt performance measures to track progress (e.g. bike and walk traffic counts, miles of sidewalk and bike lanes installed, congestion measurements).” She mentioned that for both public health and environmental reasons, “There has been
much more attention paid to walking and biking recently.” She continued, “Before it was just about cars. But the idea of the Complete Streets Plan is to make the roads usable for all users — cyclists, pedestrians, scooters, wheelchairs, and motor vehicles. We also hope to make the streets safer for kids riding to school. The municipal leadership has been very forward-thinking on this. I’m thrilled.” Planning Board Vice Chair Gail Ullman observed that biking advocates had been disappointed in the past at the slow pace of change, but that there had been a gradual shift in the text of the Circulation Element reflecting shifting priorities in the town. Ullman explained that over the past 15 years the Circulation Element has been revised many times. “Early on, the first section in the Element dealt with cars,” she said. “Pedestrians and bicycles fell to the end. Over time, that priority has been largely reversed, along with the values of the town.” West Drive I n a n ot h e r w i d e l y - ac claimed decision, in re sponse to concerns of the S pr i n g d a l e C om m u n it y, the Planning Board voted unanimously on Thursday to delete West Drive from the Circulation Element of the Master Plan, blocking any future plans to connect Springdale Road to West Drive and open the combined road as a major artery into and out of Princeton. “It was an enormous victory for the neighborhood and the whole community — not having traffic coming through,” said Carl Mayer, officer pro tem of the Springdale Instit ute Neighborhood Association (SPINA), recently created to oppose development of West Drive. “The road would pass right through wetlands, Rogers Wildlife Refuge, the D&R Canal, and the Institute Woods. It’s a very important area for the environment and history. The Planning Board elevated preservation and protection over development and traffic.” At an October 11 public meeting, after hearing from numerous members of the
community, the Master Plan Subcommittee of the Planning Board had voted unanimously to recommend the deletion of West Drive from the Circulation Element of the Master Plan. In commenting on last Thursday’s full Planning Board confirmation of that decision, Quinn said, “I was pleased to see that Springdale Road residents came out and thanked the Planning Board. West Dr ive shouldn’t have been in the Element in the first place. It was a good outcome for everyone, an accomplishment.” —Donald Gilpin
Lunada Bay Tile Makes Habitat for Humanity Donation
Lunada Bay Tile, as part of its ongoing partnership with Habitat for Humanity, has donated a range of back-splash tiles to Habitat for Humanity of Burlington County and Greater Trenton-Princeton for resale in a local Habitat for Humanity ReStore. This year, Lunada Bay Tile donated close to 200 pallets of different styles of backsplash tiles to the Habitat ReStore located in Maple Shade. This year’s additional donations should bring estimated total retail value of more than $1 million. The ReStore in Maple Shade now has the product on its floor for 75 percent off its original retail value. Proceeds from the sale of products, which include over 400 styles of stone, glass, and ceramic backsplashes, will assist Habitat in its mission to help families achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter. “We are grateful for Lunada Bay Tiles’s partnership,” said Tristan Keyser, ReStore director of Habitat for Humanity of Burlington County and Greater Trenton Princeton. “These products are perfect for renovating anyone’s kitchen while giving Habitat partner families the home of their dreams.” Located at 530 Route 38 East in Maple Shade, the store has more than 40,000 square feet of furniture, home décor, building materials, and appliances.

Under the Influence: In Russia With Chekhov Looking Toward America
ith Russian hacking, Russian interference, and the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution dominating the news, it’s a time to look at another, less insidious side of the U.S.Russia dynamic. If you extend the possibilities inherent in “hacking” and tweak “interference” as “influence,” then anyone in this or any other country who has been susceptible to the work of Russian writers, artists, and composers has been “hacked.” At 18, I was drunk on the novels of Dostoevsky and Tolstoy and the symphonies of Shostakovich, fascinated, thrilled, exalted, under the influence. A lifetime later one of my most trusted sources of positive influence is a Russian whose work was of little interest to me then. In 1975, when Shostakovich was dying, he asked his wife to read him a story by Chekhov. Written in 1890 and titled “Gusev” after the peasant protagonist, it’s a great novel in 20 pages. For concentrated power, human poetry, and sheer breadth of vision, Chekhov’s story is the equal of Tolstoy and Dostoevsky, transcending the earthshaking events of 1905 and 1917 and such matters as the current problematic state of affairs between Russia and America. It was also one of over a hundred Chekhov stories that saw me through 2016, the year in which Russian “interference” apparently helped bring about an ongoing political catastrophe. Kennan and Svetlana In fact, our first decade as Princeton residents has a Russian theme, first sounded when a Patton Avenue neighbor invited me over one day to meet Stalin’s daughter Svetlana and her feisty six-year-old Olga. Four years later we moved into a garage apartment behind former ambassador to the Soviet Union George Kennan, who played a key role in helping Svetlana settle in the Princeton area. Before taking residence at 146-A Hodge Road, we were vetted by Kennan’s son, Christopher, who at age two was playing near the gated front of the embassy residence when some Soviet children came along “smiled at him and gave him a friendly poke through the bars,” at which he “squealed with pleasure and poked back.” According to Kennan’s Memoirs 1950-1963, the back and forth continued until “the guardians at the main gate” saw what was going on and “shooed the Soviet children sternly away.” It was this “small incident” that made Kennan finally lose the patience he’d struggled to observe “in the face of this entire vicious, timid, mediaeval regime of isolation to which the official foreigner in Moscow was still subjected.” It seems downright Chekhovian that a state-mandated interference with children at play should have a decisive impact on the American ambassador’s becoming Persona Non Grata in the Soviet Union. As I found in one of my first conversations with our illustrious landlord, Chekhov was not only a hero of his but the subject of an unwritten biography. In Memoirs 19251950, Kennan refers to a period “of preparation” that led him through “all thirty volumes of Chekhov’s work, plus six fat
volumes of his inimitable letters.” Kennan points out that there could have been “no finer grounding in the atmosphere of prerevolutionary Russia than this great body of Chekhoviana, unparalleled as it was in perceptiveness, vividness, objectivity, and artistic feeling.” The Coast of America After my own year-long journey through Chekhov’s fiction, I took up his only fulllength work of non-fiction, The Island: A Journey to Sakhalin (Washington Square Press), which describes his trek across Siberia and the Tatar Strait to study conditions in the tsarist penal colonies on Sakhalin, a large island in the North Pacific just off the east coast of Russia. The only way Chekhov could obtain official approval of his mission was to describe himself as a census taker, which explains the inclusion of statistics on the ratio of women to men, convicts to settlers, the birth rates, number of female convicts, proportion who become prostitutes, the dispersing of data seasoned with compassion (“the love element plays a fateful part in their sorrowful existence”). Since the journalist necessarily takes precedence over the writer in The Island, the master’s touches, when they come, are s t r i k ing. In one moment that seems hauntingly evocative of a pr imal Russian American connection, Chekhov is staring at the sea, which “looks cold and troubled. It seethes with fury, and the high gray waves smash down on the sand as though shouting in despair, ‘God, why did you create us?’” The explosive allusion to God concludes a paragraph that begins with reference to the myth of a beautiful woman. The paragraph that follows takes force from the break between the fury of the waves and the next sentence: “This is the Pacific Ocean … and far away lies the coast of America.” A friend had actually wired Chekhov to return to Moscow “via America,” an idea he apparently took seriously but gave up because of the expense. Or perhaps it had something to do with what he’s feeling in the moment, his sense of the vast space between him and far away America that leaves him feeling bleak and lonely: “To the left through the fog you can see the headlands of Sakhalin, to the right more cliffs … and not a single living soul around you.” Then his thoughts take another turn: “You ask yourself for whom do

these waves roar, who hears them during the night, what are they calling for, and for whom will they roar when you have gone away. Here on these coasts you are gripped not by thoughts but by meditations. It is terrible, but at the same time I want to stand there forever and gaze at the monotonous waves and listen to their thunderous roar.” If He Had Lived In 1890, the year he went to Sakhalin, Chekhov was 30. He died in 1904. In 1914 his friend Maxim Gorky declared that had Chekhov “not died ten years ago the war would certainly have killed him, having first poisoned him with hatred towards mankind.” In all that I’ve read by and about Chekhov, stories, plays, short novels, letters, reminiscences of f r i e n d s, t h e r e’s nothing to suggest that war or anything else could ever make him hate mankind. Gorky himself offers numerous instances of Chekhov’s abid i ng hu ma n ity. After speaking with great warmth about the mistreatment of school teachers “who walk in rags, shiver with cold in damp and draughty schools,” Chekhov becomes “silent, thinking, and then, waving his hand,” he says “g e n t l y”: “ T h i s Russia of ours is such an absurd, clumsy country.” In Gorky’s account of the conversation between Tolstoy and and an ailing Chekov, Tolstoy is rhapsodizing on one of Chekhov’s stories, comparing it to “the lacework” of young girls “dreaming in designs of all that was dear to them,” weaving “all their pure uncertain love into their lace.” According to Gorky, “Tolstoy spoke with great agitation, his eyes full of tears. It happened that that very day Chekhov’s temperature had gone up and he was sitting there with a high flush on his cheeks, his head bowed, carefully wiping the glasses of his spectacles. He was silent for a long time, then he sighed deeply and said in a low, bashful voice: ‘There are many misprints in it.’” Aware that he’s given the anecdote a Chekhovian turn, Gorky adds, “A lot could be written abut Chekhov, but it would have to be done in a fine and subtle way which I do not possess. It would be well to write about him in the same manner as he himself wrote The Steppe, a tale with a peculiar atmosphere, so light and so pensively sad in a Russian way. A tale — just for oneself.”
While the phrase “ just for oneself” subtly expresses how it is to read Chekhov, I wonder at Gorky’s use of the word “light” in regard to The Steppe, a Russian epic that movingly illustrates George Kennan’s theory that “this great body of Chekhoviana,” with its vast, many-faceted panorama of the human condition, illumines and presages the forces that gave birth to the Soviet Union. Getting to the Point As Robert Payne’s introduction to The Island makes clear, the epic journey to Sakhalin and the arduous months Chekhov spent there almost certainly contributed to “his premature death.” You ask yourself why Chekhov, himself a physician, would risk his already compromised health to study life in one the most remote districts of Russia. In a letter from March 1890 to a friend who tried to talk him out of it, he makes his case in terms that leave no doubt about his feelings for mankind. At first he pretends to see the task as a remedy against his “Ukrainian laziness,” suggesting that the journey would “yield at least two or three days that I shall remember all my life, with rapture or with bitterness.” Then he gets passionately to the point, that Russia has exiled “thousands of people there,” that besides being the only place where you can study colonization by convicts, Sakhalin is the site of “unbearable sufferings, such as only human beings, free or bond, can endure... it is clear that we have let millions of people rot in prison, destroying them carelessly, thoughtlessly, barbarously; we drove people in chains through the cold across thousands of miles, infected them with syphilis, depraved them, multiplied criminals,” and then placed the blame on prison wardens when “all civilized Europe knows now that it is not the wardens who are to blame, but all of us, yet this is no concern of ours, we are not interested.” Finally, characteristically, he says “the only thing to be regretted is that I am the one to go there and not someone else who is better equipped for the task.” The Language of Men Surely among the “moments of rapture” he will remember all his life is when he’s gazing at the waves and thinking of far away America. In “Gusev,” the story Shostakovich’s wife read to him when he was dying, there are intimations of that moment as two dying men stand in the prow of a hospital ship, peering at the sea “that has neither sense nor pity” — “Tall waves are making an uproar for no reason. Each one of them as you look at it is trying to rise higher than all the rest and to chase and crush its neighbor; it is thunderously attacked by a third wave that has a gleaming white mane and is just as ferocious and ugly.” n the story’s closing sentence, after Gusev’s body is sewn up in sailcloth and tossed overboard, the ocean “takes on tender, joyous, passionate colors for which it is hard to find a name in the language of men.” —Stuart Mitchner

Labyrinth Hosts Talk On Stalin and Hitler
Pulitzer Prize-finalist Stephen Kotkin will be talking about his book, Stalin: Waiting for Hitler, 19291941 at Labyrinth Books
on Wednesday, November 15 at 6 p.m. According to the New York Times, “The densely packed, 1,154-page tome — roughly a page for every four days of the period it covers — is no easy read. Yet the book unquestionably rewards the patience that it demands. Slowly but inexorably, Kotkin teases out his subject’s contradictions, revealing Stalin as both ideologue and opportunist, man of iron will and creature of the Soviet system, creep who apparently drove his wife to suicide and leader who inspired his people.” Stephen Kotkin is professor of History at Princeton University. The first of his three-volume biography of Stalin is Stalin, Paradoxes of Power. He is the author of Mag netic Mountain : Stalinism as a Civilization and Armageddon Averted: The Soviet Collapse 1970 — 2000 and contributes regularly to The New York Times, The New Repub lic, and the BBC.
Langston Hughes’s Salvation Subject of Labyrinth Event
L abyrinth Books and Princeton University’s Departments of Religion and African American Studies are launching a two-day conference on Langston Hughes with a celebration of conference organizer and scholar Wallace Best’s Langston’s Salvation – American Religion and the Bard of Harlem on Thursday, November 9 at 6 p.m. at Labyrinth. Arnold Rampersad, author of The Life of Langston Hughes, says that Best “offers us here a bold, novel,
complex, and yet highly persuasive reassessment of this marvelous writer’s mind and art. Professor Best’s book is the product of exhaustive research and scrupulous reasoning. The result is probably the most exciting study of Hughes — and of the modern, essentially urban interplay between religion and literature epitomized in Hughes’s work — that we have seen in many a year.” Wallace D. Best is a professor of Religion and African American Studies at Princeton University. He is the author of Passionately Human, No Less Divine : Religion and Culture in Black Chicago, 1915-1952.
Unfinished Twain Story Discussed November 14
Ph ilip and Er in Stead will be at Labyrinth talking about The Purloining of Prince Oleomargarine on Tuesday, November 14 at 5:30 p.m. A never-before-published, previously unfinished Mark Twain children’s story has been brought to life by the creators of the Caldecott Medal-winning A Sick Day for Amos McGee. In a hotel in Paris one evening in 1879, Mark Twain sat with his young daughters, who begged their father for a story. He began telling them the tale of Johnny, a poor boy in possession of some magical seeds. Later, he would jot down some rough notes about the story, but the tale was left unfinished … until now. Plucked from the Mark Twain archive at the University of California at Berkeley, Twain’s notes now form
the foundation of a fairy tale picked up over a century later. With only Twain’s fragmentary script and a story that stops partway as his guide, author Philip Stead has written a tale that imagines what might have been if Twain had fully realized this work.

Mailbox Letters Do Not Necessarily Reflect the Views of Town Topics
An Open Letter to the Rider Board of Trustees From Executive Committee of AAUP’s Rider Chapter
To the Editor: The AAUP [American Association of University Professors] is extremely concerned about the direction that the University has been taking for several years, and recent news has only deepened our concern. Continuation of the path that we are on can only lead to disaster. We believe that we must work together to put Rider on a new path, one that unites all the stakeholders. On November 1, 2017, Moody’s downgraded Rider’s bond rating: “Moody’s Investors Service has revised the outlook on Rider University (NJ) to negative from stable, reflecting continuation of thin operating performance, a material increase in debt which will result in increased debt service, and the uncertainty around the timeline and potential impact of Westminster campus (WCC) sale on the university’s enrollment and operating performance.” What is notable about the Moody’s report is that it is not
citing environmental factors as the reason for its downgrade. It is clearly citing choices made by our leaders as the reason for its downgrade. These choices are 1) the decision to accumulate significantly more debt during a period in which revenue generation is compromised by various factors, including administrative judgments concerning tuition discounting, and 2) the decision to sell WCC and the (unknown) impact of such a decision. We strongly encourage the board to consider these factors carefully. We have had significant concerns about the fiscal responsibility of this administration, and the statements in Moody’s recent report echo our concerns. Taking on significant new debt while revenue growth is relatively flat is imprudent. Likewise, the decision to sell Westminster Choir College was poorly planned, has been and continues to be an expensive effort, was based on unsupported claims of the cost of running Westminster, has entangled Rider in lawsuits, has generated much bad publicity, and is unlikely to produce the cash influx president Dell’Omo has claimed it will. Student satisfaction and morale have been eroding over the last two years as reflected in the NSSE survey of student satisfaction. Dissatisfied students do not help in our attempts to recruit new students, and dissatisfied students certainly do not become alumni who develop into donors. Faculty morale is at an historic low with distrust of the

administration central to that low morale. The 2016 climate survey found morale across the campus much lower than in previous surveys. Our recent survey of members found 84.5 percent of all faculty dissatisfied with the direction of the institution, 66 percent considering leaving, 75 percent saying the administration does not value faculty research, 64 percent saying the administration does not value faculty teaching, and 62 percent saying that the administration does not appreciate faculty value contributions. One has only to speak to faculty to understand the level of anger, depression, and anxiety. Faculty members have been leaving in unprecedented numbers and not just senior faculty. There is hardly a junior faculty member who is not looking to leave. Faculty are the heart of any university, and it cannot bode well for the implementation of Rider’s strategic plan of starting new programs and majors that faculty expected to implement those programs no longer think Rider is a good place for a career. We therefore call on the Board of Trustees to weigh these factors and consider whether or not we can change the path that we are on under our present leadership. We stand ready to work with you and other key stakeholders to put us on track to unite us all for future success. ELIzABETH SCHEIBER President, AAUP Executive Committee

Yes We CAN! Food Drives Asking for Frozen Turkey Donations Plus “Fixings”
To the Editor: Each year, our volunteer group, Yes We CAN! Food Drives, reaches out to our community to help us provide a ‘Happier Thanksgiving’ for families in need by asking for donated turkeys so they, too, can share a holiday dinner. These are families and individuals who must supplement their food by utilizing the three food pantries of Arm in Arm (formerly The Crisis Ministry). The pantries in Princeton and Trenton offer free food and nutritional advice monthly to 2500 adults and 1000 children with low incomes, and those who are unemployed, handicapped, veterans, and the elderly. And, each year, the number in need grows. This year, in addition to asking you to donate frozen turkeys at our turkey drive on this Saturday at the West Windsor Farmers’ Market, we are requesting you also donate the turkey “fixings” that we all love. Our volunteers will be at our Yes We CAN! table at the Farmers’ Market on November 11 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., collecting such fixings as potatoes, gravy packages, stuffing mix, cranberry sauce, pie ingredients or anything else you and your family enjoy on Thanksgiving. If you’d rather offer a cash donation, we will happily shop for you. My specialty, I might add! By the way, if you haven’t been to the market, you are in for a wonderful treat. Over a dozen farmers bring their freshly-picked produce, while other vendors sell fresh baked goods, jams, local honey, and lots more. And, there’s always entertainment and food for the marketgoers. Look for our Yes We CAN! banner on November 11 at the West Windsor Farmers’ Market, which is located off Alexander Road on Vaughn Drive, on the way to the train station. Parking is free. See you there. FRAN ENgLER Publicity Chair, Yes We CAN! Food Drives www.yeswecanfooddrives.org

enrollment figures, but also by changes in 21st century teaching and learning, Cochrane told School Board members at a meeting last month. “Schools are not buildings, but the people in them,” Cochrane said. “But the buildings can serve those people. How can we create spaces that will connect, support, and inspire those people?” Cochrane described his presentation as the first of many that will take place as
the process moves through the initial design phase to submission of initial plans to a design-adjustment phase, with transparency and substantial input from all stakeholders, board members, interested community members, staff, and students. “We’re excited to begin this work,” Cochrane continued. “We’re excited to have input from the staff and the community, and we’re excited to continue reporting back to the people.” The school district’s planning, he emphasized, is still at the idea stages, with no decisions yet finalized and
no designs yet approved. Cochrane noted that 21stcentury education calls for the creation of spaces that facilitate active learning, with learners working collab or at ively w it h clas s mates and others around the world, with areas that encourage integrated and interdisciplinary learning rather than the traditionally depar tmentalized spaces and curricula, and courses that are research-driven (often web-based) rather than textbook-driven. Ideas under consideration for the referendum include major construction at PHS
that would add the equivalent of 12 classrooms of flexible instructional space plus expansion of the cafeteria; the new community school for fifth and sixth grades, possibly on the Valley Road site; one or two new athletic fields with turf, plus additional space for wrestling; security and HVAC upgrades for all the schools, including air conditioning for the PHS gym; an alternate space for the central administration and transportation should the Valley Road building become a new fifth and sixth grade school; and spaces for a district pre-school center
and possibly another elementary school. Cochrane emphasized the importance of fiscal responsibility in developing referendum plans, with the goal of a modest tax impact and subsidies from state grants and alternate revenues. —Donald Gilpin

versity’s physics department, at the meeting of 55-Plus at 10 a.m., Thursday, November 9, at the Jewish Center of Princeton, 435 Nassau Street. Everyone is welcome. Admission is free, with a $3 donation suggested. Gubser’s talk will be about how gravity and black holes work, and about the recent remarkable discover y of colliding black holes at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO). Starting with a discussion of the relativity of time, the talk will move on to how sure we are that black holes exist in the universe, and how the LIGO discovery clinches the case and at the same time demonstrates the existence of gravitational waves. Steven Gubser is a theoretical physicist specializing in string theory. Gubser is the author of The Little Book of String Theory and co-author with Prof. Frans Pretorius of a forthcoming book, The Little Book of Black Holes, both published by Princeton University Press. 55 -Plus was organized in 1986 as a non-sectarian group to promote social contacts and friendships among men and women who are either retired or who have flexible working hours. Members meet at 10 a.m., usually on the first and third Thursday mornings of each month (except late June, July, and August) to listen to and discuss a wide range of topics presented by prominent speakers. 55Plus meetings are open to the general public.

Free legal advice on immigration and other issues will be offered to all interested people on Wednesday, November 29 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the second floor Conference Room at the Princeton Public Library. The Ask-a-Lawyer Program is co-sponsored by the Latin American Task Force, the Princeton Public Library, and the Mercer County Bar Association. Ask-a-Law yer began in 1999 to meet the need expressed by the local Latino community and is offered quarterly by the Latin American Task Force of Princeton. Local attorneys volunteer their time to provide individual consultations. The lawyers will answer questions in their areas of expertise as much as possible, and make referrals when necessary. Though not definitive legal consultations, this offers an opportunity for a brief review of current applicable law or to get a second opinion. Spanish interpreters will be available.

Westminster Faculty continued from page one
which one employer takes over for another and the faculty and staff are not affected. “Our position is that there is no legally binding evidence that that’s true,” Halpern said. “We don’t know the name of the potential partner … to say there are no problems is like treating us like children. That’s what you say to a child when you don’t want to tell them you’re bankrupt or you’re getting divorced.” The union was closely involved when Rider merged with Westminster in 1992. “But we have not been invited to be part of this or even given information,” said Halpern. Halpern said this week that the AAUP chapter has hired an outside finance expert to review the packet provided by the University. “We’re
doing our due diligence,” he said. “All of the faculty of Westminster’s jobs are on the line.” The letter sent to Rider’s Board of Trustees asking them to consider not selling may or may not have an impact. “We hope they’ll see that there are better pathways to success,” Halpern said. “In higher education, it’s not unusual to see a board change positions under pressure from the faculty. But we’ll see.” M e a n w h i l e , a l aw s u i t against Rider, filed in June by members of the Westminster community, is going forward. The suit states that Rider does not have the legal right to sell Westminster and make a profit on the sale, and that the 1992 merger agreement requires Rider to continue to operate Westminster except where there is a financial inability to do so. “T hat is not t he case
Wonder what a girl can do? B
here,” said attorney Bruce Afran, who is handling the suit. “This is essentially Rider trying to monetize Westminster for its own use.” The suit w ill likely be expanded to include new claims, Afran said. “We won’t accept the current proposal they are floating because it is not the equivalent of operating a four-year nonprofit accredited college. A transaction in which a for-profit company would claim to operate Westminster through a so-called nonprofit division is legally impossible, because accredited colleges cannot be controlled by financial companies in the United States.” We s t m i n s te r’s A l u m n i Council is also active in trying to save the school. “We are very closely allied with the dean’s Leadership Council,” said Constance Fee, who is recent past president of the Alumni Council. “We are feeling that every time the administration speaks, there is another twist on this. What I’m missing is a statement from them, on an ongoing basis, about what’s happening. They’ll dribble a bit to students and another bit to faculty, but not to the Alumni Council at all. So we keep receiving conflicting, confusing messages that seem to change from day to day. As for the pink slips (layoff notices ), they are very disconcerting.” Kristine A. Brown, spokesperson for Rider, said, “As we have continuously told facu lt y, s t af f, s t u dent s, and parents, the University is committed to positive change to secure a bright future for both Rider and Westminster Choir College.
We recognize the critical role that our talented faculty play in making that a reality and advancing the goals of this institution. Rider is facing a number of challenges impacting our long-term sustainability, and we are doing what is necessary to address them. We are committed to an open dialogue and will continue to provide updates to the campus community.” —Anne Levin
Immigration Network Convening Hosted by Princeton AlumniCorps
On October 16 and 17, Princeton AlumniCorps hosted a convening at Princeton University enabling dialogue and promoting action on immigration and refugee issues. The meeting, a launch of AlumniCorps’ new Bold Idea initiative, brought together nonprofit and public interest organizations, practitioners, academics, policymakers, and funders. The agenda included presentations on the current federal landscape of immigration policy and the local impact of these policies on vulnerable communities and the direct service organizations that work with them. The convening also pro vided opportunities for the 29 participants to engage with one another and brainstorm potential avenues of collaboration. The discussions culminated in a series of immediate project priorities for further engagement, with the aim of consolidating the budding partnerships between the different attendees while expanding the circle of participation as the initiative moves forward. As president and executive
When girls come to Stuart, they enter a community that is both challenging and supportive. From preschool to senior year, their curiosity and zest to learn are fed by outstanding academics and expert faculty–who know girls and know each girl well.
director of AlumniCorps Kef Kasdin noted, “This meeting and our Bold Idea represent the heart of what Princeton AlumniCorps is all about: mobilizing people, organizations, and networks for the public good.” Emerging from the most recent AlumniCorps strategic plan, the Bold Idea endeavors to leverage the resources, strengths, and experiences of AlumniCorps’ network of 600 partner organizations, 200+ volunteers, and 2,000 program alumni to make a palpable impact on an issue of public interest. The Bold Idea concept was inspired partly by previous endeavors undertaken by AlumniCorps in its early years, like the Tuberculosis Initiative (1997-2002). This first iteration of the Bold Idea, with a focus on immigration, is a two-year pilot that will extend into 2019. AlumniCorps will use the network-building insights gleaned from this pilot to select a new Bold Idea topic every three years. To bolster the collective impact of this initial pilot project, AlumniCorps has partnered with Appleseed, a network of public interest legal centers throughout the United States and Mexico with a successful track record of develop ing bi-partisan solutions to persistent and challenging social issues. “Our commitment to network building and collaboration strongly aligns with the mission of AlumniCorps” said Deirdre Flaherty, President of Appleseed, “We are excited to harness the power of our combined networks on this key and timely issue.”
Jim McGreevy to Speak On Prison Reentry
Former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevy, executive director of the Jersey City Employment and Training Program, will address the importance and success of prison reentry efforts in a lecture at Mercer County Community College (MCCC). “New Jersey Reentry” will be the subject of McGreevy’s lecture at noon on Tuesday, November 21 in the Communications Building, Room 109. His talk is part of MCCC’s Fall 2017 Distinguished Lecture Series at the West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. The lecture is free and open to the public. McGreevy, who also serves as chairman of the New Jersey Reentr y Corporation (NJRC), will stress the need — and importance — of providing support services to formerly incarcerated individuals, with the goal of successfully integrating them into society. NJRC provides addiction treatment, so ber housing, employment and training, and linkages to healthcare at five sites throughout the state. Clients of NJRC have a recidivism rate of less than 20 percent, with an employment rate of 62 percent. McGreevy has served as New Jersey’s governor, state senator, state assemblyman, and as mayor of Woodbridge. Other public service includes positions on the New Jersey Parole Board and as assistant prosecutor in Middlesex County. For more information on MCCC’s Distinguished Lecture Series, call (609) 5703324 or visit www.mccc. edu/events.

UMCP Exhibit Features Napple Landscapes
University Medical Center of Princeton (UMCP) will host a wine and cheese reception on Friday, November 17 to mark the opening of “From New Jersey to Arizona and Back,” an exhibit of paintings by Hopewell native Deb Strong Napple. The reception is scheduled from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Art for Healing Gallery, located in the concourse connecting UMCP to the Medical Arts Pavilion and
the Bristol-Myers Squibb Community Health Center. RSVP by November 10. To register, visit www.princetonhcs.org/calendar.

Mercer County Communit y College’s ( MCCC’s ) James Kerney Campus Gallery (JKCG) has announced the opening of “SHOT,” a photo exhibit by Kathy Shorr of the survivors of gun violence. The show runs from Wednesday, November 8 through Wednesday, December 6. JKCG is located in MCCC’s Trenton Hall, 137 North Broad Street, across the street from the Kerney Building. On Thursday, November 16, the community is invited to an opening reception from 5 to 8 p.m., with a panel discussion on gun violence starting at 5:30 p.m. The panel, to be moderated by MCCC Professor Alvyn Haywood, will include Shorr, along with survivors who are pictured in her book, SHOT, published in April 2017. The book depicts 101 gun violence survivors from across the United States from different socioeconomic, political, ethnic, gender, and age groups. A book signing will follow the discussion. (Books will be available for purchase.) Shorr states, “Those who die from gun violence can only address the issue as
whose lives have been forever changed by the emotional and physical trauma of gun violence. They are present in their portraits and their words (survivors write a statement to accompany their photo), and are not able to be dismissed as statistics that have passed on but rather as a ‘force’ to reckon with.” Shorr adds that “SHOT” enables the viewer to explore the dialogue about gun violence. “A number of the survivors in ‘SHOT’ are responsible gun owners. It is not meant to be polarizing, but rather to connect us to each other and how much we have in common, giving us the opportunity to begin to take an unbiased look at guns in American society. Responsible gun laws are desired by most Americans,” she said. Shorr is a freelance photo g r ap h e r w h o te ach e s documentary photography at schools and nonprofits including The School of Visual Arts. Her work has been exhibited widely including the Howard Greenberg Gallery and Sariedo Gallery. Her series, “Limousine,” was featured in the Visa Pour L’Image, International

“A World of Light: Photographs 2007-2017 by Richard Trenner” is a one-man retrospective show running through the end of the year at the Present Day Club, 72 Stockton Street, at the corner of Library Place and Stockton Street (Route 206) in Princeton. The show includes some 35 color and black-andwhite photographs in various sizes and genres. While many of the photographs are of people and scenes from New Jersey, others range from the Maine coast to the Napa Valley and from Paris to Istanbul. A longtime Princeton resident, Trenner is a writer, editor, and writing teacher as well as a photographer. He began making photographs when he was 12 years old. Several thousand photo graphs and many years later, he received formal recognition for his work when one of his photographs won Best in Show at the annual Focus on Sculpture juried competition at Grounds For Sculpture. In the past decade, Trenner has had a dozen solo shows, been selected for some 30 juried competitions, won a number of awards, and had several of his photographs published in books. Today, his work is in some 60 private collections and a few institutional collections. “As someone who loves to look at nature, people, and art,” Trenner said, “I’m drawn to objects and scenes that join natural with human-made elements.” Trenner, who earned degrees in English from Princeton and Rutgers universities, has taught more than 250 writing workshops for universities and businesses. For nine years, he was a lecturer in Public and International Affairs at Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School, where he conducted the Writing Center. At present, he is working as a writer and photographer for the Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination at Princeton University, serving as the writing specialist at Far Hills Country Day School, and coaching adults and students in writing skills.

Princeton Pro Musica Opens Its New Season With Concert of Remembrance
rinceton Pro Musica began its Princeton area concert series on the later side this year, with the first performance of the ensemble’s 39th season on Sunday afternoon in Richardson Auditorium. However, the concert date and piece performed went together perfectly. The 100-voice chorus presented Johannes Brahms’s Ein deutsches Requiem on All Saints’ Day, combining liturgical remembrance with Brahms’s German texts of comfort and ultimate joy. As further acknowledgment of the day, Pro Musica included an “In Remembrance” page from members of the chorus in the written program to Sunday afternoon’s concert, commemorating friends and family. Premiered in 1868 (with a fifth movement subsequently added), Brahms’s German Requiem was rooted in the composer’s own grief over the deaths of both his mother and close friend and fellow composer Robert Schumann. Brahms drew the texts, however, not from standard Latin “Requiem” prayers but from varied passages in the Bible, including the Books of Psalms, Matthew, Peter, Isaiah, and Revelation. As Brahms himself wrote of selecting the passages, “I have chosen my texts because I am a musician, and I needed them.” In familiar German rather than church Latin, this seven-movement choral/orchestral work has served as a universal musical memorial worldwide for the past 150 years. Brahms’s Requiem is tailor-made for an ensemble such as Princeton Pro Musica, whose performance practice is centered on crisp diction, solid preparation, and a well-blended choral sound. Pro Musica Artistic Director Ryan James Brandau found a wide range of dynamics and choral styles within the Requiem’s block chordal sections, interlaced with fugues borrowed from the Baroque era 100 years before Brahms’s time. Brandau impressively began the first movement as quietly as possible, leaving room for the sound to grow to coincide with the text. Lean sectional viola and cello lines aided in opening the Requiem in a consoling and inspiring manner. Principal oboist Stuart Breczinski provided elegant solo lines, both in this movement and throughout the piece. T he technical choral demands of Brahms’s Requiem are immense, from the long expressive lines of the fourth movement to the complex and dramatic fugal passages, which should raise the roof of
the performance hall. Princeton Pro Musica held up to the choral requirements well, only occasionally sounding buried in the thick texture of full orchestra and fugues which demanded a full-bodied choral sound. Passages that worked especially well included verses in the second movement on the text “Be patient, therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord,” in which the choral sound was light and supple and the closing of the third movement, in which the chorus reassures a doubt-ridden bass soloist. Pro Musica also began the sixth movement particularly well, as Brandau kept rhythms precise to allow the chorus to regain vocal stamina. Joining Pro Musica for this performance were soprano Rochelle Ellis and bass-baritone Paul Max Tipton. Each soloist had a specific role in the work; Ellis sang of maternal consolation in the fifth movement, while Tipton conveyed grief and doubt in two other movements. In the fifth movement, often described as Brahms’s tribute to his mother, Brandau kept the orchestra’s playing style detached to contrast with Ellis’s lyrical melodic lines. Delicately and subtly accompanying the vocal line was a solo oboe line played by principal oboist Breczinski. Ellis was comforting as a performer, singing the top registers confidently and communicating well to the audience. Tipton was dignified in demeanor, singing with a very clean sound, and always plaintive as the violins built intensity well. The sixth movement included the familiar “trumpet shall sound” text also set by Handel in Messiah; whereas Handel’s setting of the text was mysterious and declamatory, Tipton’s singing of Brahms’s setting was exciting and anticipatory, building the sound well. Brandau kept the fugal close of this movement crisp, with a smooth musical flow which no doubt made the passages easier for the chorus to sing. Both chorus and orchestra ended the Requiem well, with decisive singing of a reassuring text and a peaceful conclusion. ro Musica’s introductory remarks to the performance indicated the ensemble had a number of new subscribers this season. All members of the audience were well appreciative of Sunday afternoon’s concert, providing some reassurance of its own for the chorus’ successful season this year. —Nancy Plum

Liddell’s Missionary Work Memorialized in Sequel to “Chariots of Fire”
hariots of Fire (1981) told the real-life story of Eric Henry Liddell (1902-1945), known as “The Flying Scotsman,” who won the gold medal in the 400-meter race at the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris. What made his feat so amazing was that he had only qualified to run in the 100-meter dash but refused to compete in the race when he learned that it would be occur on a Sunday. Liddell was a devout Christian whose missionary parents had instilled in him the Biblical injunction that the Sabbath was a holy day of rest. Consequently, he decided to enter the 400-meter contest instead, and miraculously managed to prevail against the best runners in the world in an event that he hadn’t even trained for. Chariots of Fire was a critically-acclaimed movie that received four Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay. Now, after 36 years, this sequel tells what became of the Olympic star after the Olympic Games of 1924. Co-directed by Stephen Shin and Michael Parker, On Wings of Eagles stars Joseph Fiennes as Eric Liddell. At the point of departure, we learn that he eschewed fame and fortune in 1925 to return to China, the coun-
try of his birth, in order to follow his calling to be a missionary. He settled down in Asia and started a family with his wife, Florence Mackenzie (Elizabeth Arends). However, their life was irreversibly changed when the Japanese invaded China in 1937. During the occupation, the Liddells were given the opportunity to leave the country, but the dedicated minister decided he could not to abandon his flock. However, he did send his pregnant wife and daughters, Patricia (Laura Justine Friis Lodahl) and Heather (Asta Friis Lodahl), to live with his in-laws in Canada. Sadly, Eric was interned in a concentration camp where he suffered terribly before passing away in 1945, only months before Japan’s surrender. The movie is a tribute to a man of great faith who always chose to follow humbly in the footsteps of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Very Good (HHH). Rated PG 13. In English, Mandarin, and Japanese with subtitles. Running time: 96 minutes. Production Studio: Goodland Pictures/Innowave Ltd/ Bondit. Distributor: Archstone Distribution. —Kam Williams
AT LAST I CAN PURSUE MY DREAM TO BECOME A MISSIONARY: Eric Henry Liddell (Joseph Fiennes) is on a ship bound for China, where he and his wife Florence (not shown), plan to do the Lord’s work.

Coming Off Historic Ivy Title Campaign, Tiger Men’s Basketball Hungry for More
parked by a pair of senior stars, Steven Cook and Spencer Weisz, the Princeton University men’s basketball team ran the table last winter in Ivy League play, going 14-0 in regular season action and then winning the league’s inaugural postseason tournament. While the graduation of Cook and Weisz leaves a void in terms of leadership and production from a team that went 23-7 overall last winter and fell 60-58 to Notre Dame in the first round of the NCAA tournament, the cupboard isn’t bare. The Tigers boast the return of three stars in senior guard Amir Bell (6.6 points and 2.4 rebounds last winter) along with junior Myles Stephens (12.5 points, 4.6 rebounds) and Devin Cannady (13.4 points, 3.6 rebounds) who figure to play key roles as Princeton goes for a title repeat. With the Tigers opening their 2017-18 season at Butler on November 12, Princeton head coach Mitch Henderson sees potential for big things this winter. “We lost a lot of minutes,” said Henderson, speaking at the program’s recently-held media day. “It is a different kind of team but I think we could be equally as good, if not better, in some areas, including defensively.”
Henderson credits Stephens with having a major impact at the defensive end. “Myles Stephens is able to guard other teams’ best players and that gives you an opportunity to be in any game,” asserted Henderson, who welcomes back senior Mike LeBlanc (0.8 points, 0.3 rebounds), sophomore Will Gladson (2.3 points, 1.1 rebounds), senior Alec Brennan (2.3 points, 1.3 rebounds), sophomore Richmond Aririguzoh (1.5 points, 1.0 rebounds), and junior Noah Bramlage (0.7 points, 0.5 rebounds) in the frontcourt. “Everybody has really good players.” The Tigers are aiming to be well-rounded. “Our goals are where they have always been,” said Henderson, whose backcourt will include sophomore Jose Morales (1.1 points, 0.4 rebounds), senior Aaron Young (1.5 points, 0.5 rebounds), and junior Elias Berbari in addition to Bell, Cannady, and Stephens. “We have got to defend and make sure that we are making each other better on each possession. I am encouraged; I really like what we are seeing.” Henderson likes what he is seeing from the squad’s rookies. “As far as freshmen go, it is as good of a group as we have had since I have been here and we
have had some really great groups,” said Henderson, whose corps of newcomers includes Charlie Bagin, Ryan Schwieger, Jerome Desrosiers, Elijah Barnes, and Sebastian Much. “They have made themselves coachable. They are listening, they are asking for input from these guys, which is all you can ask for. They are willing to go through that together as a group. I think all of them are going to be helpful.” Stephens, for his part, is looking to help the newcomers find their way. “We have a lot of young guys on the team that are going to contribute and play significant minutes,” said Stephens. “I like the direction things are going right now. We are just pulling guys along and getting them used to how we know how to play and how we want to imprint games.” In Cannady’s view, he and classmate Stephens can make a major imprint on the season. “We are stepping into a role as juniors where we see that our actions on the court and giving max effort in every practice is in and of itself a kind of leadership,” said Cannady. “That is something we have grown together, learning how to do. We came in here as freshmen not know-
STARTING POINT: Princeton University men’s basketball head coach Mitch Henderson makes a point at the program’s media day last Thursday as Tiger stars, from left, Myles Stephens, Amir Bell, and Devin Cannady listen intently.

(Photo by Frank Wojciechowski) ing anything about the Princeton offense. All I had done before was pick and rolls and shoot threes and now were are cutting and moving the ball. We were both learning that as freshmen and as sophomores, we both took on different roles and expanded those roles. Now we are leaders.” The loss to Notre Dame in the NCAA tourney, which saw Cannady’s attempt for a game-winning three-pointer at the buzzer just miss, has helped focus the returning players. “We remember the whole game; I specifically remember the shot and that has been fuel to the fire in the offseason and coming into this year,” said Cannady. “Knowing where we have been and that we were one
shot away, one play away; the goal is to get back there and to win games in the tournament. That has been motivation in the offseason.” Bell is bringing a special motivation into his senior season. “I know how hard it is to win, it is not going to be easy,” said Bell. “So it is just trying to stress that in practice and knowing every day that we have to compete and we have to bring our best.” Henderson is hoping that a tough non-conference schedule will bring out the best in his team. “We wanted to be challenged; last year we played a difficult schedule and this is even more difficult,” said Henderson. “It is one of the most difficult schedules we have
played in over 20 years. We are on the road in some really difficult places to play. We talked about this a lot. This is a goal of ours, to use the non-conference season as an opportunity to get better to prepare us for the league. This group has bigger goals in mind, which I really like.” Noting that he had to make big changes to his rotation last year due to some earlyseason injuries, Henderson is excited to see how things fit together this winter. “What I learned from a year ago is that you don’t make your mind up,” said Henderson. “Watching and seeing where we are now, there are a lot of pieces. I am looking forward to it.” —Bill Alden

should also contribute. Littlefield will take a key role as Banghart is trusting her to run the offense. “Carlie is the point guard; she is tough, she is accountable,” said Banghart, whose backcourt will also include junior Gabrielle Rush (6.9 points, 2.9 rebounds), senior co-captain Tia Weledji (5.8 points, 3.1 rebounds) and senior Kenya Holland (5.0 points, 1.3 rebounds) along with junior Qalea Ismail, who is returning from a knee injury that sidelined her last year. “She is consistent, she can score, she can defend. She is a leader on the floor. She was a good get, I am glad she is on our team.” Robinson, for her part, is looking to help Princeton get its first Ivy title since her freshman year. “We want the Ivy League title, we also want the Ivy League tournament title as well,” said Robinson. “That is something that has driven us since our freshman year, going 30-0. That hunger and that eagerness is there. We have shown that to all the classes that are under us. Our work ethic is showing on and off the court. That is what teaches them and what drives everyone to want to be great.” Alarie is seeing a special drive from the 2017-18 squad. “I would say that our energy this year has been really good,” said Alarie. “We all came in ready to learn, ready to win, and

(1.6 points and 1.0 rebounds last season), and sophomore Jordan Stallworth (2.1 points, 1.3 rebounds). “It is her senior year, it is her last time out. She has a ton of experience now, she has a real edge to her. She plays the game with such joy. She is responsible for setting the barometer of the team; the sense of purpose as well as the enjoyment. She is walking that line really well. Leslie is in great shape physically and is in great shape mentally.” Sophomore star Bella Alarie is poised to have a great year in the wake of a stellar freshman campaign during which she produced 12.5 points and 8.0 rebounds a game. “Bella is a year older and that makes a big difference; people can forget based on her stat line and her performance last year that she was only a rookie,” said Banghart. “She is a whole year better, which is great. We are expecting her to build on the momentum she had last year.” Banghart is expecting junior Sydney Jordan to perform all over the court. “Sydney is probably our most versatile player; she can play the one through the five for us offensively and defensively,” said Banghart of Jordan, who averaged 4.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in 2016-17. “She has to do that and she has done that really well. She is probably our best ball defender. We expect her to allow us to play everybody else to their strengths.” The Tigers are welcoming a strong corps of newcomers with its Class of 2021. “We have got a great group of freshmen, that is how it works in college basketball; our current team and the team that just graduated recruits them so I give these guys a lot of credit, they got a really good, solid class to join them in their quest here for a title,” said Banghart, noting that guards Carlie Littlefield and Abby Meyers will see a lot of action right away and that McKenna Haire and Sydney Boyer
Last winter marked the first season that Princeton University women’s basketball team had suffered five Iv y League losses under Courtney Banghart since 2008-09, her second campaign at the helm of the program. For Princeton head coach Banghart, who guided the Tigers to five Ivy titles in six seasons starting with the 2009-10 season, last year’s ups-and-downs were the product of a squad that didn’t quite mesh. “This program has always had incredible chemistry, on and off the court,” said Banghart, speaking at the pro g r a m’s re ce nt ly - h eld media day, reflecting on a 2016-17 squad that went 1614 overall and 9-5 Ivy, making it to the WNIT where it lost to Villanova in the first round. “It has been a team from top to bottom and side to side; it has really prided itself on being one. Last year we weren’t quite as cohesive in terms of how we played the game together on the court.” As Banghart looks ahead to Princeton’s season opener against George Washington on November 10 at Jadwin Gym, she believes her players are on the same page. “What a difference a year makes in terms of the new pieces that we have; we have got a lot of young talent,” said Banghart. “I give a lot of credit to our senior class. The energy of this group has been palpable and consistent. I have a fun team to coach, they are really focused. They are working on getting better. I am looking forward to getting the team against somebody else.” The Tigers are looking for senior forward and co-captain Leslie Robinson to build on her breakout season last winter which saw her average 10.4 points and 7.6 rebounds a game. “Leslie has been the heart and soul of our team now for a little while,” said Banghart, whose frontcourt will also include sophomore Taylor Baur, junior Caroline Davis
ready to work hard to get there. Everyone across the board has bought into that and is bringing energy every day. That is going to be really important for us this year and it is going to help us to be great.” For Alarie, the experience of helping the U.S. team take silver at 2017 U19 FIBA World Cup last summer in Italy has honed her focus. “This summer really taught me that I don’t like second place very much and I really, really want to fight to win this Ivy title this year,” said Alarie. “I learned a lot over the summer and I gained a lot of confidence in my game. I am really excited to attack this year with a really competitive mindset.” Banghart knows that her team needs to be in attack mode as it deals with a challenging non-conference schedule, starting with the game against GW. “We will see winning traditions night after night and our hope is that iron sharpens iron,” said Banghart. “More importantly competitors want to put their uniforms on and compete, they don’t just want to play. We have got a schedule that is going to force us to compete.” If the Tigers can avoid injury, Banghart believes her squad can add to the program’s winning tradition. “I am really optimistic, I enjoy coaching them,” said Banghart. “The schedule is tough so how do they handle a potential setback? You just look your leaders in the eye and say we are who we are,

PU Field Hockey Completes 7-0 Ivy Campaign, Headed to Virginia for NCAA Tournament Clash Starting the season by going 1-4 against a gauntlet of Top-25 foes ended up paying dividends for the Princeton University field hockey team. After edging No. 10 Maryland 2-1 on September 19, the Tigers caught fire, suffering only two more losses over the rest of the regular season and going 7-0 in Ivy League play, earning the program’s 25th league crown. In the view of Princeton head coach Carla Tagliente, running the table in league play is a source of deep pride for the program. “It is a great accomplishment; it is very difficult to do these days, no matter what conference you are in,” said Tagliente, reflecting on her team’s perfect league campaign which has lifted the Tigers to an 11-6 overall record. “It is a testament to the players. The first six-toseven games are a tough stretch. For them to dial in and continue to focus on the process and each game at hand, it speaks volumes. They learned from the hard moments and losses and moved forward and got better from it.” Now the 14th-ranked Tigers will get to apply those lessons in the NCAA tournament as they will be heading south to face No. 4 Virginia on November 11 in a first round game. The game marks a rematch of a dramatic NCAA quarterfinal clash last season between the two teams which saw Princeton pull out a 3-2 win over Virginia on a last-second goal by Sophia Tornetta as the Tigers advanced to the national semis for the seventh time in program history. Tagliente knows that the Cavaliers will have revenge on their minds in the wake of the 2016 thriller. “They may be hanging onto it,” said Tagliente. “I think the dramatic end of that left some scars for them but it is a new season and a different group of players.” Virginia boasts a number of standout players, led by Tara Vittese (24 goals and 14 assists) and Pien Dicke (21 goals, 6 assists). “I think it will be a great game,” said Tagliente, whose squad has sharpened up its penalty corner play at both ends of the field and boasts a balanced attack led by senior Ryan McCarthy (15 goals, 2 assists) along with a pair of freshmen Clara Roth (6 goals, 11 assists) and Julianna Tornetta (5 goals, 13 assists).

“They are a ver y good team this year with some very strong individual players. I think it has been shown that they can get rattled if you get up on them early but at the same time they can score very quickly.” Tagliente, for her part, believes that getting off to a quick start will be critical to Princeton’s chances of topping Virginia and advancing to the second round a day later against the winner of the other opening round game at the site that pits North Carolina against St. Joseph’s. “It is really impor tant that we get up on the board early in this game,” said Tagliente. “Their attack penalty corners are super strong, they are going to get their fair share of opportunities. We need to mitigate how dangerous those opportunities are. If we can get up early in the game, we can put a few in and go from there. Containing some of their individual talent will be key. There are pros and cons when you have that much individual talent on a team. If you can defuse those danger spots, you can do a good job.” Being the underdog in the clash with the ACC power suits Princeton.
“At this point of the season, t here are really no expectations on us,” said Tagliente. “ We a r e p l ay i n g w i t h house money at this point, not that we shouldn’t be here. There is no pressure; it is just go out and have a good time, enjoy it, and be in the moment. All the pressure is on them. They are expected to win, they are the ACC champions.” The Tigers thrive when they stay in the present. “It is one game at a time for us right now and just enjoy the moment; that is one thing that we do very well with this group right now,” said Tagliente. In Tagliente’s view, Princeton is playing some very good hockey right now. “Penn was a little bit of a hiccup for us, that was a challenging game,” said Ta g l i e n t e , r e f e r r i n g t o Princeton’s 2-1 w in over the Quakers last Saturday in the regular season finale. “Up until that point we h ave b e e n t re n d i n g u p ward.

Ryan Ferland didn’t feel sharp as he took the ice for the Princeton University men’s hockey team last Friday against visiting Colgate but it didn’t take long for the freshman goalie to get into a rhythm. “I actually didn’t have a great warm up but I felt good af ter the first few shots,” said Ferland. “It is kind of big when I feel like that in the beginning; it usually translates to the rest of the game.” T hings translated well over the rest of the night as Ferland went on to make 36 saves, earning the first shutout of his career with the teams skating to a 0-0 tie. “I was definitely coming in a lot calmer than last time; in the first game you are going to have those jitters,” said Ferland, a 6’0, 175-pound native of Franklin, Mass. “But in this game still even by the end you get a little nervous because it is still a close game. I definitely held on in that game. I thought we played well; we got a tie at least.” The contest turned into a battle of goalies as Colgate sophomore net minder Colton Point made 43 saves, several of them point blank. “He played unbelievable; I definitely felt a back and forth,” said Ferland. “I thought we had a few of them but he made some unbelievable saves. It was really fun.” Ferland is having fun dealing with the challenges of college hockey. “The biggest thing is that anyone can score from any
angle,” said Ferland, who found that out the hard way as Princeton fell 5-4 to Cornell last Saturday to move to 1-1-1 overall and 1-1 ECAC Hockey. “In juniors if it is from the outside, chances are they can’t really put it in the net. Everyone is so big and strong here, every shot can go in so you have to be ready.” With senior Ben Halford and junior Austin Shaw also vying for time in goal, Ferland has to be sharp every day. “We all get a lot better from competing for the job because there is not one starter,” said Ferland. “It helps a lot.” As Ferland has gotten to start, he has been helped by Princeton’s corps of veteran defensemen. “That is huge, Joe Grabowski and the seniors are playing really well,” said Ferland. “Everyone is playing solid. The defense is clearing pucks out and more importantly clearing people out in front of the net, which has been big.” Princeton head coach Ron Fogarty credits Ferland with giving the Tigers a big lift. “He stops the puck, that is his job,” said Fogarty. “He is doing a great job; he is making it look easy. We have a couple of capable guys behind with Halford and Shaw, they have been playing great too. He has taken every opportunity to run with it.” In reflecting on the tie with Colgate, Fogarty was happy with how Princeton generated scoring opportunities. “I thought it was an en-
tertaining 0-0 game too, we had a couple of chances at the end,” said Fogarty. “Unfortunately the breakaway doesn’t go in. I thought we played well enough to win. We have to keep improving on some support issues that we had in the second period.” Keeping the Raiders off the scoreboard required Princeton to come up big when Colgate had chances. “The defense was good. I thought we played well,” said Fogarty. “Colgate had some big pushes, we got back and collapsed at the right times to get the loose pucks away from Ryan. It was an up-anddown game; it wasn’t a hold on to the puck and dump it out 0-0 tie. There were chances on both ends.” While Princeton ultimately didn’t pull out the victory, Fogarty still saw progress. “We didn’t win but we got the tie,” said Fogarty, whose team heads north this weekend to play at Union on November 10 and at Rensselaer on November 11. “You have to bank points in the ECAC. We banked one out of two so that is good for us. We made a good start; it is a lot quicker than our start from last year.” Ferland, for his part, is looking to build on his solid start. “I definitely felt more confident than I did in the beginning but there is a long way to go,” said Ferland, who has a goals against average of 2.27 and a save percentage of .929. “Every team we play is really good and especially with our season last year, everyone wants to beat us. I will definitely get more confidence as the games go on; I am excited to play.” —Bill Alden

Late Rally Falls Just Short on Disputed TD As Princeton Football Loses 38-35 at Penn With six defensive starters sidelined due to injury, the Princeton University football team was in danger of being run out of Franklin Field by Penn last Saturday. The Tigers trailed 17-7 at the half as Penn ground out scoring marches of 80 yards, 71 yards, and 53 yards to reel off 17 unanswered points. As he addressed his players at intermission, Princeton head coach Bob Surace had a simple message. “We talked about it at halftime,” said Surace. “It was just doing a better job rallying to the ball and doing a better job finishing plays. Taking Surace’s words to heart, Princeton spent the second half mounting a furious rally to turn a potential rout into a tense nail-biter. After falling behind 24-7, the Tigers narrowed the gap to 24-21 with pair of touchdow n passes from Chad Kanoff to Jesper Horsted in a span of 1:15 late in the third quarter. “I felt we really did a great job of throwing the ball, breaking tackles,” said Surace. “We score, we force a fumble, and we score again. At that point, it was a backand-forth game. I felt that guys showed a lot of resolve.” The Tigers kept showing resolve in the fourth quarter. After Penn went up 31-21, Princeton answered with two touchdown runs by Charlie Volker to forge ahead 35-31 with 4:26 remaining in regulation. But the Quakers regained the lead on a touchdown pass to Justin Watson to make it 38-35. The Tigers clawed back one more time, marching to the Penn 13-yard line and apparently winning the game: Kanoff hit Stephen Carlson with a pass in the end zone with seven seconds left that was called a touchdown by one official but was ultimately waved off by the crew. Princeton then missed
a 31-yard field goal attempt to fall by that 38-35 margin. Surace, for his part, firmly believes that Carlson’s grab should have decided the contest in Princeton’s favor. “They single-covered Stephen and he did a great job getting the ball and tipping it to himself,” said Surace, whose team dropped to 5-3 overall and 2-3 Ivy League with the defeat. “He scored a touchdown that ultimately was ruled differently. Everybody saw it; obviously he secured it and was in bounds.” In falling to the Quakers, the Tigers squandered a big passing performance as senior star and tri-captain Kanoff hit on 32-of-45 passes for 351 yards and three touchdowns with Hoersted making nine catches for 114 yards and two touchdowns and Carlson coming up with 10 receptions for 103 yards and a touchdown. “I thought on the 10 drives that we had, Chad was so efficient,” said Surace. “He did a great job, not only completing passes, but he was putting them in spots where you can get yards after the catch. All of the guys were getting the passes in situations where you turn six-yard gains into 10 and 10-yard gains into 14 and really looked good doing that.” But playing shorthanded on defense ended up dooming t he T igers as Pen n rushed for 317 yards and built a 36:19 - 23:41 edge in time of possession. “We have got to do a better job just playing our responsibilities,” said Surace. “We had some guys who hadn’t played a snap of varsity football doing the job. We have to make sure that the guys who have been playing don’t do anything outside of their responsibilities. Penn had a great plan and they executed it well. They ran the ball extremely well. They would wear us down
with three, four, and fiveyard gains, eventually as the drives extended, those gains got greater.” While Surace won’t soon forget the disappointment of seeing an apparent win taken away by an officiating decision, he knows Princeton can’t dwell on that as it hosts Ivy leader Yale (7-1 overall, 4-1 Ivy) on November 11. “We have got to move forward. At the end of the day, Yale is the best team in the conference and they are playing their best football right now,” said Surace. “Our complete focus needs to be on preparation for Yale. They are an outstanding team and they have played that way all year. They have a freshman running back [Zane Dudek] who is leading the league in rushing. Their quarterback [Kurt Rawlings] has been incredibly efficient all year long; they have been a top tier offense. Defensively, they are playing as well as anybody in the conference the last three or four weeks. They are getting to the quarterback and creating pressure.” In Surace’s view, the way Princeton pressured Penn in the second half last Saturday is the blueprint for success against the Bulldogs. “We really showed a ton of fight; we know that our only chance to play a great game against Yale is to show that fight and play that way because they are loaded and are a really good team,” said Surace. “We made a lot of mistakes that we have to correct. The good part of it is that we are playing with energy, we are playing with effort. You keep doing those things and hopefully you can get into one of these competitive one-play games and turn it around and win it.” —Bill Alden

RETURN ENGAGEMENT: Members of the Princeton High boys’ cross county team take off at the start of the Mercer County Championships at Thompson Park in Jamesburg on October 20 on the way to winning the title. Last Saturday, PHS returned to Thompson Park and won another championship as it placed first in the Central Jersey Group 4 sectional for the second straight year.

Joining the Princeton High girls’ cross country team this fall after having competed for the American School of London program, Siena Moran had trouble keeping up with her new teammates at first. “It was definitely more intense here,” said junior Moran. “When I came for the first two weeks of practice, it literally destroyed me. I was so not used to that level of training.” Adapting to the increased training load, junior Moran has emerged as a star for PHS. Last Saturday, she placed 10th at the Central Jersey Group 4 sectional, posting a time of 19:53.00 over the 5,000-meter course at Thompson Park in Jamesburg. Moran’s stellar performance helped PHS place fourth in the team standings and advance to the state Group 4 meet on November 11 at Holmdel. “At the beginning of the season, I thought 21:30 was the fastest I was going to get,” said Moran. “I think I ran that the first time we were here and and I was thinking I am at my peak right now but it want down even from that.” Moran finished just behind senior star Chloe Taylor, who took ninth in 19:50.50. “She is usually way, way ahead of me so I was surprised that was the first time I have actually seen her during a race,” said Moran. “Chloe is usually out of sight for everyone; we train together but she is usually a minute ahead of everyone else.” Noting that she been influenced by Taylor, Moran has enjoyed becoming a part of the PHS squad. “It has definitely made me a lot better,” said Moran. “It is really different, having a huge team. My team before was like 20 people. They are all super nice and it has been nice getting to know them.” PHS head coach Jim Smirk was proud of the way his girls’ team kept things together as it dealt with some injury woes. “We were joking that maybe our slogan should be ‘held together by duct tape and bubble gum,’” said Smirk. “We had to ride that wave a little bit. I think the credit for our mindset and our ability to not panic in the face of that goes to Chloe Taylor. She has raced that way all season. I am incredibly proud of her as our captain and as a senior. She has put together an absolutely amazing season for us so far and we are looking forward to more.” Smirk is looking to seeing more from Moran. “When she came out, she said I have run a little track and it was OK, we will take our time,” said Smirk, who got a 15th-place finish at the sectional from freshman Charlotte Gilmore. “All of a sudden, we are watching her race and run and saying there is so much more here. Chloe took her under her wing and said let’s teach you how to train. It was the same with Charlotte Gilmore; that little crew there has done really well.” The team’s crew of scorers at the sectional meet also included senior Lauren Cleary, who took 35th, and sopho-
more Elizabeth Hare in 43rd place. “We need to make a nod to Lauren Cleary, she is a captain for us as well this year,” said Smirk. “She had a big 30+ second-PR here today. Hare really struggled this season; it took a long time for her to get her feet underneath her and start to run better. She put together a great training week with Chloe Ayers, another one of our freshmen, and it showed.” L o ok i ng a he ad to t he Group meet, Smirk is hoping his team can produce another good showing.
“We have got to stay in our growth mindset; we are really young,” said Smirk. “For us, it is about getting out there and having that experience, racing well in that experience even though it is new, and really understanding that the training that we did from preseason forward was all geared towards having positive results late in the season. That is a good lesson for our younger runners to learn, to be patient and have it pay off when it counts.” Even though Moran is heading into uncharted territory at the Group meet, she is looking for another positive result. “We are hoping to build on this. We will see what happens,” said Moran. —Bill Alden

Will Ratner who can act as safety valves for us.” In Donahue’s view, the pack mentality is paying dividends for the Little Tigers. “The big reason why we can all race well in different races is because we trust each other so much,” said Donahue. “If you are up there then you have faith that the guys behind you have it locked down as well so there is no pressure on any of us.” The example set by last year’s senior star Alex Roth and Hare has helped Donahue race better this fall. “They are some of my best friends and great runners,” said Donahue. “I have always looked up to Roth as a role model. I learned a lot from him, he just did all of the little things right all the time. I have really taken that as a model for my own training.” PHS head coach Jim Smirk liked the way his runners played off each other in the race. “Jackson Donahue and Nick Delaney have locked in with Tucker Zullo and Alex Ackerman and really created a core there,” said Smirk. “If all four of us run great at the same time, that is perfect but this is what we really need. Jackson had a huge day and Tucker Zullo had a huge PR. Ackerman had about the same kind of day he had at counties although he wasn’t feeling real well. It wasn’t his day but because we had developed that sense of identity, self, and team that is not what ended up being the thing. It was the fact that the other guys were able to pick up the race.” Senior star and Pennbound Hare has developed into something special. “Will has decided that his legacy is going to be it is not enough just to be fast but he has got to be at the top and he has to be a champion,” said Smirk. “That is how he is racing, that is how he is winning. He is not flashy, he is not that

Although Jackson Donahue ran well at Thompson Park in Jamesburg as the Princeton High boys’ cross county team placed first at the Mercer County Championships in late October, he knew he had more to give. “I was looking at my times the other day and I realized that I haven’t PR’d since last season,” said senior Donahue, who took 18th at the county meet with a time of 16:47.81 over the 5,000-meter course. “I was like this is the last race at a fast course because the remaining races are all at Holmdel so I have got to get a fast time and get the team a win.” Returning to Thompson Park last Saturday for the Central Jersey Group 4 sectionals, Donahue produced a very fast time, clocking 16: 07.20 in taking 11th. With PHS senior Will Hare placing first in 15:39.00 to lead the way, the Little Tigers won the team title by a razor thin margin, compiling a score of 67, one point better than runner-up WW/PSouth. As a result, PHS booked a spot in the state Group 4 meet on November 11 at Holmdel where it will go for another title repeat. “The training is definitely paying off; it all came together in this race,” said Donahue, reflecting on the program’s second straight sectional title. “ We really upp ed our training for the last two weeks and I guess it worked out.” Donahue led a pack of his fellow seniors as classmates Alex Ackerman took 22nd, Nick Delaney placed 43rd, and Will Ratner finished 49th while juniors Acasio Pinheiro placed 16th and Tucker Zullo came in 17th. “Acker man, Nick, and I were sort of our safety valves in our 4-5-6-7 spots last year,” said Donahue. “Alex Roth, Will, and Acasio took care of the scoring. Now it is down to us to take care of the scoring. We have guys like Tucker Zullo and
guy you watch for him and go oh man look how smooth he is. He is that one that you look at and say that kid is powerful, look at how he races, look at the intensity, the drive, the focus. That is what he is bringing to our team.” Hare’s drive is rubbing off on his teammates. “We want that legacy to be left and it is already playing out in terms of the varsity, but now we are starting to see that with our younger kids as well,” added Smirk. Wit h PHS hav ing won the sectional crown, the state Group 4 title, and the Meet of Champions last fall, Smirk believes that the grit his team displayed on Saturday bodes well for adding to that legacy. “They raced tough; that is what we want to do,” said Smirk. “We want to force ourselves to be the best we can be and I think we saw that today out of these guys for now. In a week we will reestablish that and find a deeper level of competition. Winning one like this validates the idea that we can be tough and win. We will come back next week and see if we can test that again.” Donahue, for his part, believes that PHS has what it takes to keep winning. “We are going to start taking down our mileage in training, trying to peak for groups and the meet of champs,” said Donahue. “We think we can win every race. We showed today we have the capability even when we some of our guys don’t have the races that they want to. We always have guys stepping up.” —Bill Alden

“We have defenders playing long balls into the striker and holding it up.” Things got a little dicey for PHS in the second half as Long Branch scored with 26:24 remaining in regulation to make it 2-1 and continued to put the pressure on PHS defense. “We let up that goal but I think we have learned over the season in close games how to ride it out,” said Nieman. “We have had a couple of overtime games and we have learned from our mistakes so I think we did well on the defensive side of the goal in the second half.” A f ter suf fer ing a f irst round loss in the 2016 state tournament, the Little Tigers are determined to advance as far in possible this year. “I think we can play pretty soccer but at the same time, if we need to defend, we will defend well and play hard and gritty,” said Nieman. “Especially after last year, we just want to win every title possible. Every day in practice we are striving to get better and move on to the next game. We want to win sectionals and states too.” PHS head coach Wayne Sutcliffe liked his team’s survival mentality. “That is kind of in the DNA around here, we just learn how to nick a goal, play well, win, and advance,” said Sutcliffe. “That is something we have talked a lot about and have prepared for in training. We didn’t do it in the MCT semi (a 2-1 loss to Pennington on October 31) so we are trying to figure out a way to get a little bit better late in games.” Getting off to the 2-0 lead against Long Branch helped
put PHS in good position to advance. “It was part of the objective in the team talk to get an early one, especially one with that kind of quality and then the second one as well,” said Sutcliffe. “Nick did a great job, he beat three guys and slotted it home. That helped a lot. He has got an extra gear; he has got something special that a lot of other guys don’t have. He is an out and out striker and goal scorer despite his age.” Seeing Nieman score was hear tening for Sutcliffe. “Josh worked so hard for eight months and all season long to get his form back,” said Sutcliffe. “He was two days on, one day off, three days on and one day off. It is great for him to score a nice goal tonight and figure out a way to help us. He was also chasing at the end; his industry was great, so credit to him.” With 15 seniors on his roster, Sutcliffe is hoping for a great finish this fall. “They had an undefeated season as freshmen and they are very close off the field,” said Sutcliffe. “They are all great kids. They are all about the game and this is a challenge for them. It would be the first Group 4 title for any Princeton soccer team because we were never in Group 4. They want to leave that legacy.” In Nieman’s view, PHS is up to that challenge. “We have to play good soccer and apply what we are doing at practice,” said Nieman. “We have got to be that team that wants it more than anyone else. It is also being able to adapt because every team is different.” —Bill Alden

It has become clear that the Princeton Day School girls’ soccer team is evenly matched w it h Montclair Kimberley Academy. In 2015, the foes met in the state Prep B title game and PDS pulled out a 1-0 win in overtime. Last year, the teams had a rematch in the Prep B championship contest and they played to a scoreless tie in a game shortened by thunderstorms. This past Wednesday, the rivals faced off in round three of their Prep B title trilogy and this time they deadlocked in a scoreless stalemate through regulation and two overtime periods. PDS head coach Pat Trombetta sensed that the title clash was going to be a tense affair. “It was a repeat of last year,” said Trombetta, who has now guided the Panthers to five straight Prep B crowns. “We had some good opportunities. I knew it was a game that was going to be decided by one goal. Every time we play them it is a tough game.”
In earning a share of the title, PDS rode its defense, which was spearheaded by senior star defenders and co-captains Maddie Coyne and Becca Kuzmicz along with sophomore goalie Riley Felsher. “They played extremely well; I took a look at some of the stats of this season and over the 19 games, we only gave up 16 goals,” noted Trombetta, whose team ended the fall at 12-6-1. “We gave up less than one goal a game. That is probably the third best defense over my 11 years at PDS so that says a lot about the defense.” It says a lot about the Panthers that they were able to win a fifth straight Prep B crown. “For girls soccer, it is the first time ever in the program,” said Trombetta, reflecting on the five-peat. “That was a goal we were shooting for and we accomplished it. We were happy with that.” While PDS would have preferred to win the championship outright, Trombetta had no regrets. “This year, it was a little
HIGH FIVE: Princeton Day School girls’ soccer player Becca Kuzmicz goes after the ball in a game earlier this season. Last Wednesday, senior defender and co-captain Kuzmicz helped second-seeded PDS hold the fort as it tied top-seeded Montclair Kimberley 0-0 through regulation and two overtimes in the state Prep B championship game. The win marked the fifth straight Prep B title for the Panthers, who finished the fall with a 12-6-1 record. (Photo by Frank Wojciechowski)
bit different as far as the championship game because we were the second seed and we had to go up there and play,” said Trombetta. “They won the Essex County championship; they are a very solid team. I was happy overall with the efforts and proud of their success that we had this season.” The efforts of senior leaders Coyne and Kuzmicz set the tone for a young Panther squad that included 11 freshmen and six sophomores. “They are two different personalities but together they were perfect for this team as far as leadership goes,” said Trombetta. “They took a lot of the younger players under their wings. The younger kids all looked up to them as role models. The kids are going to miss them.” Those younger kids learned some valuable lessons this season. “Out of our six losses, five were by one goal,” said Trombetta. “We were in every game. I think the deciding factor is that it was a young team. As they have a little more experience under their belts, those one-goal losses will turn into one-goal wins down the road.” Goalie Felsher emerged as a key factor for the Panthers in her first season as a starter. “Riley grew as a goalie too, she came on strong at the end of the season,” said Trombetta. “Even though we lost to Pennington (3-0 on October 12), she had some big saves in that game. In the Steinert game (a 1-0 loss in the Mercer County Tournament quarterfinals on October 21). She had a couple of big saves in the championship game; she had one big save that kept us in it.” With so much talent returning, Trombetta believes the program can remain in the championship mix. “We are excited for next year; obviously we are going to have a big hole in the back trying to replace two solid center backs,” said Trombetta. “That is a void we have to fill but other than that, we are looking forward to next year and the girls are looking for ward to next year. The freshman class is a strong class; they will be good for the program down the road.” —Bill Alden
Apuzzi Ends on a High Note for Hun Girls’ Soccer, Helping Raiders Win MAPL, Make Prep A Final Playing at powerhouse Pennington School in the state Prep A girls’ soccer championship game last Thursday evening, the Hun School squad came into the contest shorthanded. “It was unfortunate that our main forward, Breezy (Bryonna Worthy) was out with a concussion,” said Hun senior midfielder and co-captain Nicole Apuzzi “We had to adapt and that was hard.” Second-seeded Hun found it hard to get into a rhythm offensively as top-seeded Pennington controlled possession and pulled away to a 3-0 win. While Apuzzi was disappointed by the outcome, she is proud of how the Raiders played down the stretch after dropping to a 4-5 record in early October. “If someone had told us in the beginning of the season that we would have made it to the state final, I would have never believed them,” said Apuzzi. In assessing the squad’s late surge, Apuzzi pointed to a better on-field unity. “It was amazing, I think this team really stepped up,” said Apuzzi, who tallied a goal as Hun defeated the Mercersburg Academy (Pa.) 3-0 last Sunday to give the Raiders a final record of 10-7 and clinch the Mid-Atlantic Prep League (MAPL) title outright as they went 5-0 in league play. “We had a lot of young people. We just started to jell more. We started to feel more comfortable with each other. It just connected.” As the season went on, Apuzzi starting connecting more on the offensive end, tallying some key goals for the Raiders. “Being a captain, I had a lot more responsibility,” said Apuzzi, who recently committed to attend Colgate University and join its women’s soccer program. “We needed people to score so I felt as though I should step up.” Hun head coach Joanna Hallac credits Apuzzi and her classmates, co-captain Kendall Dandridge, Liv y Kooker, Kennedy Debow, and Jenna Jarvis with stepping up collectively. “They are irreplaceable in terms of building this program to what it is today with their leadership on the field
and off the field and their play,” said Hallac. “It is going to be a huge loss.” The loss of Worthy to injury made things tough for Hun in the title game matchup against Pennington. “Just having her gave us the ability to have other options that were eliminated tonight,” said Hallac. “We did the best we could with the hand we were dealt. Credit to Pennington with how they played and credit to our girls for the effort they put in. They never gave up.” In Hallac’s view, winning the MAPL crown was a big deal for the program. “You always want to peak at the right time and I think
the desire for that elusive M A PL crow n came w ith the wins over Hill, Lawrenceville, and Peddie,” said Hallac. “They have been putting the work in. They had that goal in mind all year. They went for it and they got it and then we were able to get back here, icing on the cake.” Apuzzi, for her part, is thrilled to end her Hun career with a league title. “T hat is a ma z i ng ; we haven’t won it since somet h i n g l i ke 2 0 0 9,” s a i d Apuzzi. “It has been hard all four years trying to win; it has been like one game each year that kept us from being able to clinch it. But this year, it was good timing.” —Bill Alden
FINAL SALVO: Hun School girls’ soccer player Nicole Apuzzi boots the ball in recent action. Last Sunday, senior star and co-captain Apuzzi tallied a goal as Hun defeated the Mercersburg Academy (Pa.) 3-0 in their season finale. The win gave the Raiders a final record of 10-7 and helped them clinch the MidAtlantic Prep League (MAPL) title outright as they went 5-0 in league play.

Louise Wells Bristol Louise Wells Bristol died at home on November 2, 2017, All Souls’ Day, and was thus reunited with her beloved husband Lee. Born in New York City on September 8, 1926, she was later raised in the Philadelphia area as well as in California and Florida. The constant in her early years was summers spent at the beach, in Bay Head, N.J. It was here that she thrived; making many life-long friends and eventually marrying the love of her life. Dur ing the war years, she attended Miss Porter’s S c h o o l i n Fa r m i n g to n , Conn., graduating in 1945. These were four magical years of friendship, community, and time in New England that she never forgot. Returning to Philadelphia in the late 1940s, she attended Harcum Junior College. Back in ‘old Bay Head,’ she met the late Lee Hasti n g s B r i s to l J r. (1923 1979), former president of Westminster Choir College in Princeton, N.J. He was then the young new organist at All Saints’ Church, a position he held for some 30 years, and she was the newest recruit for his choir. They fell deeply in love and married in 1950. Initially living in New York City, they eventually moved to Princeton where they raised, and are survived by, their four children : Elizabeth Bristol Sayen (m. to William), Henry Platt Bristol II (m. to Susan), Sara Bristol Ritchie, and Lee Hastings Bristol III (m. to Louise). She was the beloved grandmother, known as “Lady,” to her 12 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Louise loved the quiet arts of knitting, needlepoint, and flower arranging. However, her life in Princeton was also one of community activities. A founding member of the “Chemistry Club,” an avid golfer and tennis player, Louise also volunteered for the Princeton Hospital Fete, Skillman Neuropsychiatric Hospital, and Trinity Church. She was, it is said, “always the glue that held a group together” and the host that graciously welcomed others into her home. Those who knew her admired her quick wit, impish smile, and remarkable spirit. Over the years, her memberships included the Nassau Club of Princeton, Present Day and Bedens Brook Clubs, in Princeton, as well as the Bay Head Yacht Club. With Lee, she attended and was active at All Saints’, Bay Head, and Trinity Church, Princeton. Since the tragic death of her husband Lee in 1979,
one of the great joys in her life has been her grandchildren — those remarkable individuals who have enriched her life and to whom she gave so much of hers. For it was to these young ones that “Lady” was an example of grace and generosity. She will be remembered as a most loving grandmother, a gracious host, but above all the quintessential support for a man she loved, and whom she now joins at last — in Paradise. “May her soul and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.” Memorial contributions may be made to All Saints’ Church, 500 Lake Avenue, B ay Head, N. J. 08742. www.allsaintsbayhead.org.
Evelyn Auerbach Evie died at home on September 5, 2017 in Sylva, North Carolina of metastatic breast cancer. She was 63 years old. Predeceased by her beloved mother Vivienne F. Au e r b ach i n 1997, s h e leaves her father Raymond and his wife Carolyn; her sisters Jeanne, Margaret, Carol, and Linda; and her brother Ray and his children Alayna and Steven. As a young girl Evie was always sketching and drawing, and in her teenage years she gradually trained herself to work in watercolor, pastel, oil, and pen and ink. On graduating from South Brunswick High School in 1972, she had by invitation an opportunity to work with a potter in clay art at the Liberty Village Artists Collective in Flemington, New Jersey. She soon discovered a new form of expression for her gifts as a designer and experimentalist; it decided her path in life. After residing in Princeton in the mid-1970s, Evie left her native New Jersey and ventured south to Florida and Georgia. From 1978 to 1982 she ran the Georgia Tech student crafts center, where she used the university’s equipment to teach herself how to throw a pot, operate a kiln, and make glazes. For the last 35 years, she lived in rural locations in the Blue Ridge Mountains in western North Carolina. In the inspiring natural setting that she deeply loved, Evie worked long and hard at designing and creating her own style of pottery and her unique porcelain jewelry and animal sculptures, all painstakingly handcrafted and one of a kind. Over the decades she regularly traveled to local, regional, and state art shows and festivals in four southern states to display and sell her art. She was also a talented self-taught pianist who enjoyed playing ever ything from Chopin to Scott Joplin, her lifelong favorites. Evie was first diagnosed with cancer at age 45 and
decided to remain private about her illness and the treatment she pursued. Despite much hardship in the final years of her life, she very bravely continued to create, produce, and show her work until this past May. Evie will long be missed by her family and by her friends and colleagues. While her family mourns privately, we encourage you to remember her by supporting local artisans or by giving toward the care and better treatment of all animals. Rest easy Ev, we’ll see you soon.

She was one of nine children and was raised on the family’s farm. The Anderson family moved to Princeton in the summer of 1939, and have been part of the Princeton/ Trenton communities ever since. She had the blessing of a full and long life. She met and married our late father, Elvin H. Webber, shortly before moving to Princeton and their union produced five children, Travis, Elvin “Pete,” Yvonne (Gail), Beverly, and Houston. Mom lost our Dad in 1963, but with help from our family, she continued to provide a loving and supportive home for her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchild. Those of you who knew her, can recall her love of bingo, bowling, and singing with the Sweet Adeline
Choir. She was also a licensed beautician, a career she undertook to support her family. Mom loved traveling but you could not pay her to get on a plane, so instead, she and Amtrak became well acquainted as she traveled across the country to visit family and friends. She is predeceased by her parents: Reverend and Mrs. Millard F. Anderson Sr.; siblings: Reverend Millard Anderson Jr., France Anderson, Reverend Daniel Anderson, Roosevelt Anderson, Elder Alfonso Anderson, Sadie Willis, Amy Weeks, and Ressie Branch; her loving husband: Elvin H. Webber; her children: son, Dr. Elvin H. “Pete” Webber, and daughter, Beverly Jo Webber; and grandson Evan Junot Webber. She leaves behind her loving children: Travis and his wife Wilhelmina Webber, Gail Yvonne Barclay, Houston R. Webber, and daughter-in-law Diann Soltau-Webber; grandchildren: Damon and his wife Kristien Webber, Saskia Webber, David Barclay, Antonia and her husband Samuel Bonds, Kay and her husband Robert Henderson, Keith Webber, Kirk Webber and his wife Christina George, and Kimberly Webber; greatgrandchildren : Dax, Ian, and Jayson Webber, Olivia and Xavier Barclay, Jendayi and Gyasi Bonds, Justin and Joshua Henders on, and Carter Jo Webber; greatgreat-grandchild, Chance Blackshear; beloved nieces: Gladys Leonard, Gertrude Smith, and Gloria Quarrels; and dear family and friends, especially, Dolores Broadway.
We have been blessed by God to have had our loving mother, family member, and friend for 98 years and anxiously await the resurrection!
Beverley M. Brown Beverley M. Brown, 93, previously of Topeka, Kansas, and Princeton, New Jersey, died peacefully on October 25, 2017 at his home in Ocean Ridge, Florida. Beverley was born in Topeka, Kansas on October 4, 1924 to Lemuel Clifford Walker Brown and Jessie Alice Miller Brown. He spent his childhood in Topeka, graduating from Topeka High School in 1942. He attended Washburn University, but left college in 1944 to enlist in the United States Naval Reserve Midshipmen’s School. After receiving an Ensign’s Commission, Beverley saw active duty aboard the USS Floyd B Parks. Following the war, he returned to Washburn, completing his undergraduate degree in 1947. He then went on to attend Columbia University where he
received a Master of Science Degree in Mathematics. After a brief career in teaching, Beverley had a long and distinguished career with the IBM Corporation, retiring in 1983 after 30 years of service. Among his many professional accomplishments was his role as a member of the team of systems engineers who developed the SABRE system. Based on two IBM 7090 mainframe computers, SABRE went on to become the industry standard in computerized airline reservation systems. Bev’s love for math and computers remained throughout his life; in his spare time he continued to study mathematical problems and write computer programs in APL (A Programming Language). Beverley was a lov ing husband and father of five children. He enjoyed sports, above all baseball; secretly wishing to have played professionally for the St. Louis Cardinals. He took great pleasure in both theater and music and was a regular in attendance at the Princeton University Theatre Intime. A life-long member of the Princeton United Methodist Church, he volunteered in an advisory capacity for their finance committee. Most of all, he had a great sense of humor and appreciated comedians from Victor Borge to Jerry Seinfeld. He is preceded in death by his wife of 52 years, Margaret Shepard Brown, and his parents, Lemuel and Jessie Brown. He is survived by his five children: Terry Brown, Amy Brown, Nancy Kauffman, Janet Helm, and Anne Marie Schur; eight grandchildren; and three greatgrandchildren.
The Graveside Service with Military Honors was held at 10:45 a.m. on Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at the South Florida National Cemetery, Lake Worth, Florida. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to The Washburn University Terry and Ann McAdam Scholarship Fund, 1700 SW College Ave., Topeka, KS 66621 or the Princeton United Methodist Church of Princeton, 7 Vandeventer Ave, Princeton, NJ 08542.
Michael Patrick Long Michael Patrick Long died at home in West Roxbury, Massachusetts on November 1, 2017. He was 59 years old. Well known for deep pride in his Irish roots, Michael was the son of Patrick J. and Helen M. Long of Princeton, N.J. He was born and raised in Princeton with his sister Eileen and brother Brian. He moved to Boston, Mass. in the late 1970s where he worked, bought property, and happily adopted the city as his home. Michael was an avid sportsfan and joined the Red Sox for their winning World Series game in 2004. In his earlier years, living in New Jersey, he played football
and studied martial arts. A music lover, he was quick to sing or whistle a tune for all occasions. He worked on life-long collections including an admirable list of classic motorcycles, old U.S. coins, and special photographs. He was a voracious reader with a keen interest in Irish and Boston history. A naturally gifted wordsmith and story teller, Michael charmed everyone with his sense of humor, big heart, and unique perspective on humanity. His love of travel and a long journey throughout Europe in 1989 was a favorite source of material. Michael will be missed most for his kindness and generosity to both those he knew and strangers he saw in need. He always said, “I do that because I can!” Predeceased by his father, Patrick, Michael is survived by his mother, Helen Long of Princeton; brother Brian J. Long of Princeton; sister M. Eileen Long and brother in-law, Tarik R. Shahbender, also both of Princeton; and many cousins and friends in Boston, Mass.; across the U.S.A.; and around the world. Family and friends visitation will be held at The MatherHodge Funeral Home, 40 Vandeventer Ave., Princeton, NJ on the evening of November 9, 2017 from 7-9 p.m. A mass of Christian burial will follow at 10 a.m. November 10, 2017 at St Paul’s Roman Catholic Church, 214 Nassau St., Princeton, NJ. Donations in memory of Michael can be made to The Jimmy Fund in Brookline, Mass. c/o the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Mass. jimmyfund.org.

You can’t buy this coat at a local department store, but it will shield your valuable evergreens from fierce and frosty winter winds. Azalea, Rhododendron, Holly, Southern Magnolia, Andromeda, Laurel, Leyland Cypress and similar species are especially susceptible. Frozen ground inhibits the intake of water through the roots, while icy winds accelerate the process of transpiration (the passage of water out of a plant in the form of vapor) through leaves and stems, resulting in a wilting and browning condition known as “Winter Kill.” Roots: A strong root system is vital to maintain happy, healthy, sustainable plants. Fall bio-fertilization for your key trees will encourage root growth and give them additional protection and a “head start” for spring. Water: Be sure your most prized trees and shrubs go into winter with ample moisture. Winter-proofing (anti-desiccant spray) to evergreen leaves and stems forms a colorless, wax-like film, reducing excessive water loss but does not cut off oxygen and sunshine.Therefore, there is no inhibition of plant growth. Ideally, plantings should be sprayed with an anti-desiccant material once in early to mid winter. Naturally, anti–desiccant spraying is environmentally friendly and safe for your garden and community. Call WOODWINDS (609-924-3500) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to protect your prize evergreens this winter. “Those who plant a tree are happy for a day. Those who care for a tree are happy for a lifetime.”

609-921-2299 SETTING THE STAGE FOR A HOLIDAY SALE Spring and summer may be the busiest seasons for selling homes, but there are plenty of holiday buyers looking to find their home, sweet home. Here are five tips to help you score a holiday sale: • Go ahead and decorate - but keep it tasteful, minimal and, ideally, secular for the broadest appeal. Focus on natural decorations like greenery or poinsettias, and keep the colors fairly neutral - gold and silver are good choices. If you have a tree, keep it small and simple. • Use ample lighting. A well-lit home looks more festive, more inviting and cozier, especially during winter. • Focus on curb appeal. Bare trees and browning lawns detract for your home’s appeal. Compensate with attractive porch decorations, clean gutters and a new welcome mat. • Appeal to the senses. Mull some cider or back cookies before showings to stir up homey feelings. Ask your agent to turn on your gas fireplace before potential buyers arrive. • Choose an experienced agent. Top agents can find interested, qualified buyers all year round, and they can market your home for the broadest appeal. Ask your agent for more advice. A skilled agent knows the market and the buyers, and can provide you with plenty of tips to help you sell your home any time of the year.
