Princeton Professors Will Join Task Force To Fix Labor Market

Edward Felten, professor of computer science and public affairs at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School (WW), and Alan Krueger, professor of economics and public policy at WW, will serve on a new task force seeking to transform America’s labor market from one based largely on degrees to one based on skills. “I’m excited to join the Rework America Task Force,” said Krueger. “The group that I am participating in is making a serious effort to align skills training and skill certification with the needs of the 21st century economy.” Created by the Markle Foundation, the Rework America Task Force (RATF) plans to “use the same forces that will increasingly disrupt our economy — from big data to automation to artificial intelligence — to enable Americans to get Continued on Page 19

Princeton & Slavery Project Digs Deep Into Town’s Past Soon after moving to Princeton eight years ago and becoming a history professor at Princeton University, Martha A. Sandweiss began thinking about a project examining the town’s relationship to slavery. She was aware that other universities were involved in similar endeavors, and thought there might be a relationship worth investigating in Princeton. What she imagined would be “a one-off class,” Sandweiss says, has mushroomed into a community-wide series of programs and events, a four-day symposium with Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison as keynote speaker (to be introduced by poet and University professor Tracy K. Smith), and a special website scheduled to go live next month. The Princeton & Slavery Project got underway in late September with the exhibit “Making History Visible: Of American Myths and National Heroes” at Princeton University Art Museum; and a book discussion, “Einstein on Race and Racism,”

led by University professor Ruha Benjamin at Princeton Public Library. Additional events including exhibits, discussions, screenings, plays, and author talks are scheduled through the end of the year. “After that first semester, I began to see that this could be a bigger project,” says Sandweiss. “I reached out to the community, and everybody from all of these organizations was interested in becoming a part of this. They are like my dream team. I want to emphasize that this is such a collaborative project between students and community organizations.” Since 2013, graduate and undergraduate students at the University have been working on the project under the guidance of University Archivist Dan Linke. The Historical Society of Princeton, the University’s Center for Digital Humanities, McCarter Theatre Center, Not in Our Town, and Princeton Public Schools are on board along with the Princeton Public Library (PPL) and University museum.

With support from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), PPL is presenting a variety of programs. Among the highlights is an exhibit of actual historical documents from the University’s archives and the Historical Society of Princeton. Included are such disturbing reminders of Princeton’s past as a 1777 Continued on Page 18

Trenton-based Nonprofit Isles to Celebrate Mill One Social Profit Center With Fall Fest On Saturday, October 21, Trenton -based nonprof it Isles will hold its first ever Fall Fest fundraiser in the new Social Profit Center at Mill One in Hamilton. The event will feature food and drink from local restaurants and vendors, along with performances and works from area musicians and artists.

The Fall Fest is meant to showcase the greater Trenton community and to celebrate the renovation of Mill One — the historic mill building on the Hamilton-Trenton border that Isles purchased in 2006. Since then, Isles has been rehabilitating the formerly vacant mill in order to transform the striking brick and timber building into a mixed-use facility that will house not only Isles’ own facilities and offices, but also nonprofit and for profit businesses, artists’ studios, and residential units.

Founded in 1981, Isles seeks to fulfill its mission of “foster[ing] self-reliant families and healthy, sustainable communities” through a wide array of community development and environmental programs. Isles trains and educates Trenton residents through an alternative high school and vocational training programs, giving them the skills to support themselves. They also offer financial services to help build their clients’ credit and increase savings. Isles works to improve the health of the communities in which it operates by supporting over 60 community gardens in Trenton, and by launching lead testing and remediation efforts for thousands of homes across the city. Isles also plays a role in urban planning, collaborating with community stakeholders to plan and develop Trenton real estate for affordable housing, arts and cultural facilities, open space, and more. It is an unusually broad portfolio of activities, especially given the tendency of nonprofits to focus on a few very pointed services or products, but Isles founder and CEO Marty Johnson believes that the complexity and dynamism of communities demand a multifaceted approach. Under his direction, Isles follows best practices from many community development organizations, implementing a diversity of “light-touch, low-cost interventions.” Something about this must work, as Isles has received plaudits from the likes of the EPA, the White House, and the United Nations. Mill One, which is now in its final stages of renova-

tion, furthers Isles’ work in a number of arenas. When completed, Isles hopes that the facility will become a center of community and an arts and cultural hub that — along with the nearby Grounds For Sculpture — w ill anchor Hamilton Township’s Arts and Culture Overlay district. Isles also expects that, as a host to businesses and nonprofits, Mill One will benefit the local economy. Literacy New Jersey, Mercer County is one of the facility’s early tenants, and Program Director Catherine Mitch says that her organization looks forward to using Mill One’s shared spaces for volunteer training, in addition to benefitting from the good

vibes of working alongside other nonprofits. Johnson says Isles anticipates that colocating and sharing resources and ideas in this manner will help Mill One’s nonprofit tenants cut costs and flourish. Beyond the organizations and individuals it will host, and the work that will happen in it, Mill One is also an impressive building with a rich history. Designed by architect William Poland, the mill was built in 1897 by the V. Henry Rothschild Company as a clothing factory. Acquired by Straus Woolen Mills at the turn of the century, the mill was the site of a massive and very nearly explosive worker’s strike in 1913 that saw hundreds of irate working women chase an official out of the factory and into a nearby trolley car. The mill housed a number of tenants throughout the 20th centur y — most of them clothing factories of one type or another — but by the late 1980s it lay vacant. The Isles renovation refurbishes many of the mill’s original features. Princeton Universit y’s Depar t ment of Engineering rebuilt the enormous 1890s mechanical clock that sat in the mill ’s clock tower. Isles took pains, too, to restore the mill’s handsome original brickwork. But much is new as well. Mill One has been updated as an environmentally-friendly building with modern interiors, structural improvements, new plumbing and electrical lines, and a new roof that is variously covered in a large solar array, a rooftop garden, and a series of skylights that leave the interior awash in daylight. Years of work have breathed new life into the old mill. The Fall Fest will both commemorate t his work and anticipate all that is to come at Mill One. By integrating so many community organizations in the celebration, “the event is in keeping with what the space is going to become,” says Isles Resource Development Manager Karen Hollywood. The Trenton Circus Squad will perform, and artists — including Mill One artistsin-residence Malcolm Bray — will demonstrate their practice to attendees. Food and drink will come from over a dozen local restaurants and vendors, including The Cheesecake Lady, 1911 Smokehouse, and Jersey Cider Works. Some of the evening’s fare will even integrate ingredients from Isles’ own gardens. The Fall Fest will take place at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 21 at Mill One, 1 N Johnston Avenue, Hamilton.

Question of the Week:

“What do you think of the new Lewis Center for the Arts?”

(Asked at the Lewis Center for the Arts complex) (Photos by Erica M. Cardenas)

“I think it’s beautiful and I’m really happy that it’s on the forefront of campus. It definitely shows that the University is now paying more attention to the arts, which I’m very happy about.” —Rosie Vasen, PU freshman, Brooklyn, N.Y.

“I’ve played piano all my life. I went up to the practice rooms in the music department and there is a Steinway in every room — it’s just amazing. I just want to stay there all day.” —Jeremy Pulmano, PU freshman, Bloomfield

“I absolutely love the new Lewis Center for the Arts. It’s so big and all the rooms have so much light in them and it’s such a wonderful, creative space. I pretty much get to use the building every day. I study theater, musical theater, and dance.” —Marshall Schaffer, PU sophomore, Los Angeles, Calif.

“I conduct the Princeton University Sinfonia and love the state-of-the-art equipment, fabulous acoustics, and wonderful environment to make art in. This is my 15th year at Princeton. I started here as a graduate student. Wonderful, wonderful rehearsal hall.” —Ruth Ochs, Princeton

“I’m in the music theater department and it’s a new program. It’s so incredibly exciting to have access to these beautiful facilities. It really says a lot to where the department is going, the energy, and the investment of the faculty. It’s exciting to be apart of a change.” —Emma Watkins, PU senior, Hightstown

Looking to engage alumni, build a relationship with them, and at the same time benefit current students, the Princeton Public Schools District ( PPS ) is launching an alumni association for Princeton High School (PHS) graduates. Homecoming Weekend, October 20 and 21, will mark the official kickoff of the PHS Alumni Association, with alumni festivities offered throughout the weekend. Under the leadership of the district’s office of communications, the alumni association also looks forward to providing support for current PHS students through mentoring, college and career connections, internships, guest speakers, and other alumni collaborations. “We hope to build a database of alumni,” said PPS Communications Manager Brenda Sewell. “We would like to engage all of our alumni with all of our students. There are many ways they can be helpful resources for our students. We’re really excited to begin this initiative.” Mia Sacks, PHS ’83 and co-chair of the alumni steering committee, pointed out some of the motivations behind the creation of the alumni association. “One of the most rewarding experiences of moving back to Princeton as an adult has been the chance to help launch a number of initiatives in our district. I wanted to help make the opportunity to reconnect and give back to the high school — so formative in shaping us — available to more alums here and around the world. From there the idea of an alumni association took root.”



Sacks, Sewell, Assistant Superintendent Lew Goldstein, and Bob James, PHS ’62, president of Friends of Princeton High Athletics and co-chair of the alumni steering committee, have been working during the past year to make the alumni association a reality. Other local alumni on the steering committee include Ben Stentz, Larry Spruill, Tommy Parker, and Izzy Kasdin. “The launch of the initiative is particularly meaning-

ful for me having just attended my mother’s 60th PHS reunion,” said Sacks. “It is my hope that PPS alumni can help convey to current students that it’s not just about test scores, grades, and getting into college — but what you do with that learning after you graduate to make a difference in the world.” Kasdin, PHS ’10, who is executive director of the Princeton Historical Society, was eager to get on board

when invited by Sewell to join the alumni association planners. “History plays an important role in helping people feel connected to a place,” she said, “providing a sense of belonging, a sense of legacy, the feeling that you’re part of something greater.” Emphasizing that many people’s reflections on PHS might be complicated, she added, “We want to make sure that we’re being broad and honest in speak ing about PHS and people’s

memories.” Pointing out the potential value of alumnistudent connections, Kasdin, who was an undergraduate at Princeton University, cited the importance of the University network. “Having that broad network of people connected to a place helped in many ways, with many opportunities for career growth, for mentorship, and guest speakers. That was a very special experience for me.” Homecom ing Weekend events on Friday, October

20 will include a 3:45 p.m. historical tour of Princeton; 5-7 p.m. reception for alumni; and the 7 p.m. football game. On Saturday the festivities continue with the Mercer County Tournament (teams and times to be determined); 12-2 p.m. tours of PHS and a presentation by the Princeton Historical Society; and a 2:30 p.m. concert featuring studentled ensembles. —Donald Gilpin

CALLING ALL PHS ALUMNI: Donna Wilkinson, PHS class of 1957, at her 60th anniversary reunion. Wilkinson’s daughter, Mia Sacks, PHS ’83, is co-chair of the alumni steering committee and a leading organizer of the newly formed PHS Alumni Association.

She always went out to work, sometimes leaving the house at five o’clock in the morning to go away to Trenton. She was quite heroic in REEL LIFE: After the film, John Stier, one of Nash’s sons, and Dr. Joseph Kohn spoke about their that sense.” —William Uhl memories of the real John Nash. “You have ten years of fantastic work, and it sort of looks like in the movie that he spent most of his time cutting out newspapers,” said Kohn. “He did really remarkable work.”

Nash’s Legacy continued from page one

Windsor Mayor Shing-fu Hseuh spoke about his plans for Nash Park, a park in John and Alicia Nash’s honor which includes a pagoda and three gardens: one Chinese, one Japanese, and one Indian. After the film, the theater held a panel discussion with John Nash’s son, John Stier, and Princeton University Professor Emeritus of Mathematics Joseph Kohn, who studied under Nash when Nash taught at Princeton University. While Stier and Kohn both praised aspects of the film, neither found Nash’s depiction in the film to be terribly similar to the John Nash they knew. While the film acknowledged his academic genius, it also portrayed him as socially inept, which both felt was inaccurate. “I would

say that he isn’t recognizable at all,” said Kohn. “First of all, they show him as being socially awkward — not so. He was extremely handsome, very popular. He was very sociable in kind of a funny way.” Kohn also took issue with Nash’s portrayal as an incompetent, apathetic teacher. “He was a fantastic teacher — absolutely inspiring. A little eccentric with the way he graded or the way he interacted with his students, but his insights and the way he organized the material was just remarkable,” said Kohn, remembering his time in Nash’s classes. “Probably one of the most inspiring teachers I ever had.” Stier had less to say on the matter, though he made it clear he felt similarly. “[Nash in the film] feels completely different on a person-to-person basis — he’s Russell Crowe, an actor,” said Stier. “It was

convincing, but I didn’t recognize my father there.” The discussion was more receptive when it moved towards the film’s portrayal and resolution of schizophrenia. Though the panel pointed out how the film took a few artistic liberties with the nature of Nash’s schizophrenic delusions, they appreciated the film approaching the issue of mental illness. A mental health professional in the audience mentioned the value of the movie’s skepticism of `60sera psychological medicine. She also brought up the value of a strong support group, which the mov ie portrayed both in his wife, Alicia, and in Princeton University. The panel concluded with Stier and Kohn recalling their fondest memor y of John and Alicia Nash, in

Ivan the Painter: “My Paintings Are My Life”

Artist Cvetko Ivanov can be found most Saturdays and Sundays surrounded by dozens of his paintings on the front porch of the Vandeventer Street house where he lives with his niece and her husband. From his easygoing, friendly demeanor as he talks to passers-by and other interested customers, it might be hard to guess that his life has taken more than a few dramatic turns. One of those life-changing moments occurred in 1973, when Ivanov, known as Ivan for most of his life in the United States, was living in South River and working in the restaurant business. Three years earlier he had fled his native country, Communist Bulgaria, and eventually immigrated to the United States as a refugee. “They said if you behave for two years, we’ll give you a green card, and in another three years you’ll become a citizen,” Ivanov recalled. Trained and widely experienced as a restaurateur in Bulgaria, Ivanov was making a sketch to pass the time during a break from his job as waiter one day when a woman approached him and asked him about his drawing. “As a little boy in Bulgaria I used to doodle,” Ivanov said, ”Flowers, women, nature, trees. That lady saw me there in the restaurant and said, ‘You are an artist.’ And I said, ’I don’t know anything about being an artist. I’m a waiter.’ She insisted, ‘You could be a very good artist.’ I started to believe her. We bought books and I started to play around, drawing and stenciling flowers. My life started from there.” Childhood Even as a young boy in the 1940s and 1950s, Ivanov felt the harsh constraints of communism in Bulgaria, which he described as “the worst communist country in the world. Communism depressed people. T hey treated you like you’re not a human being. Life was unbearable.” Eager to go to college — “I wanted to educate myself and be somebody” — Ivanov found himself frustrated by the authorities, who did not see his family as good communists. “They never want-

ed to give me permission. They said you are not our friend. I was a young boy, 17. What did I understand about politics, the economy, or anything? They would not let me go to college, and I got not a little, but a lot disturbed.” Ivanov served in the military for about two years, after which time he noted, “Bulgaria became a little softer,” and he was able to go for two years to the Interior Architecture College in Sofia, the capital city of Bulgaria. But he still chafed under the restrictions of his school and his country. “The more I learned about the world, the angrier I became,” he said. “I got into books about A mer ica, about Europe, about communism, about capitalism. I started to educate myself.” He continued, “I started to disagree with what I was learning. I started to doubt what I was doing. I said, ‘I’m not one of those guys who sits at a desk and draws things.’ They controlled you from morning to evening — what you do, what you eat, what you say, where you go. They were so afraid of some kind of organized revolution.” Restaurant Business At this point, in the early 1960s, Ivanov’s life took a turn into his first career, the restaurant business, when he was approached with the opportunity to go to school for two years to study tourism. Also included was the opportunity to learn a foreign language. Ivanov considered the alternatives. “I thought about it and I pictured myself working in the factories and going to a school I didn’t like, and I said, ‘I guess this tourism business is for me.’” For two years, seven hours a day, six days a week, Ivanov learned the tourism business and he learned the German language. Because he was not considered a worthy communist, he was not permitted to become a manager, but he was allowed to become a waiter and he secured a job at Sunny Beach, a resort restaurant on the Black Sea. “This was my kingdom,”

he described. “I had a supreme life from 1964 to 1970. You can’t imagine. I was an important moneymaker for that Balkan tourist industry. I worked very hard. People liked me. I had my friends from all of Europe: Germany, Austria, Sweden, Holland.” Struck by the contrast between his home country and his growing knowledge of Europe and Europeans, Ivanov finally realized that he had to leave. “I decided it’s beautiful here, but it’s not a place where I can develop myself and live. Nobody gives you any chance. I had a lot of friends in the West. I said I’m gonna go. I didn’t see a future for me in Bulgaria.” After a dangerous border crossing into Yugoslavia, now Serbia, Ivanov found many of his friends and eventually made his way to Austria, to a refugee camp outside Vienna, where his application was processed and, after a year, he was able to come to the United States. Two Careers For several years in the 1970s and early 80s Ivanov was pursuing both art and restaurant careers simultaneously. “I started to draw all sorts of designs,” he said. “I got into it, and people said i could sell these designs. But I was in the restaurant business and bartending and that was my life. But in ’74 or ’75, a design firm in New York bought one of my designs. They made millions from it making wallpaper, and they paid me 300 bucks. And I was so happy.” Both careers flourished in the following years. “I started to get more ambitious,” Ivanov said. “I worked in Vegas. I worked on 5th Avenue. I lived in Miami. I opened a restaurant in Miami in 1975. I was very successful. I also started to paint more seriously.” Ivanov found more and more work as an artist and designer, and in the mid ’80s he stopped working in the restaurant business to devote his full time to what would become Studio Ivan. In addition to his many paintings of landscapes and Continued on Page 10

or painting water, sky vistas, or flowers makes me happy. I strive to capture the everchang ing bou ndar ies of waves, the illusive shapes of cloudscapes, the explosion of colors that flowers can offer. While much of my older work included seascapes from the Black Sea and mountainous scenes reminiscent of my former homeland, more recent work has focused on settings in and around Princeton and nearby rural Hunterdon County. I still like painting flowers too.” Surrounded by his art and work, Ivanov reflected on his adventurous life from Bulgaria to Vandeventer Street. “These paintings keep my life intact,” he said. “They keep me happy, even if I don’t sell them this week. My paintings are my life.” —Donald Gilpin

Solar Array at Old Landfill Is Finally Ready to Open Six years after it was first proposed, a 3-megawatt solar array is about to open at the closed municipal landfill on River Road. Officials will gather Thursday morning, October 12 at 11 a.m., for the ribbon cutting. The project is a partnership bet ween Princeton, Stony Brook Regional Sewage Authority, and New Jersey Resources Clean Energy Ventures. It will supply up to 25 percent of the energy needs of the Stony Brook sewage facilit y on River Road. The municipality will receive a lease payment of $25,000 a year for the use of the site. “It’s a very unique project involving the municipality, a

regional authority, and the private sector that reduces the cost of the energy required for operation of the sewage processing plant, and prov ides an annual stream of revenue to the municipality in the form of rent for an otherwise unusable, closed municipal dump,” said Councilman B er nie Miller, in an email. Miller was instrumental in getting the project started by convincing the former Borough and Township to put up the initial $15,000, and then encouraging the consolidated Princeton to stay with it when the market for new solar projects suffered during the recession. The initiative has been in

the works since 2011 when the former Borough and Township created the original power purchasing agreement. It was put on the back burner a year later because of a decline in solar renewable energy credits, known as SRECs. In 2015, the consolidated Princeton Council put the project out to bid, and GeoPeak Energy was the successful bidder. But the value of SRECs was falling again, and the project was once again put on hold. It was continued once the value of SRECs increased. New Jersey Resources Clean Energy Ventures is building the 8,000-panel solar array, and will operate and maintain it. The power purchase agreement is for 15 years. “It’s the municipality’s first and only solar project, and a clear win for the town,” said Miller. —Anne Levin

BACTERIAL LEAF SCORCH! This incurable plant disease has infected an estimated 40-plus percent of oaks statewide. The aesthetic impact of this disease will be felt throughout New Jersey’s affected municipalities such as Princeton, as large tree removals will change the character of the neighborhoods and replacement trees will take decades to grow to the size of the trees that were removed. There is no cure for Bacterial Leaf Scorch (BLS) at this time, but with proper management affected trees can often be maintained for many years. Symptoms: The primary symptom associated with BLS is a marginal scorch of affected leaves on one or more branches in the canopy. This symptom appears later in the growing season (mid-August through October). As the infection progresses, branches die and the tree declines. The process of tree decline may occur quickly or slowly depending on the tree and the environment. Diagnosis: To diagnose this disease, submit a small branch specimen (pencil width in diameter) with scorched leaves attached, to the State Plant Diagnostic Laboratory for analysis. Management: Since there is no cure for this disease, proper management strategy includes the maintenance of tree vigor for as long as possible. If possible, water affected trees during times of water stress to reduce the debilitating affects of this disease. In addition, other diseases, insects, and environmental stresses (including drought) enhance the development of BLS. Branches and infected trees in a severe state of decline should be routinely removed. Tree injections reduce symptom development, but do not cure the disease and must be repeated. In areas known to be affected by this disease, as is Princeton, replace affected trees with species that are not known hosts of the bacterium.

For further information regarding BLS, contact WOODWINDS at (609) 924-3500.

Mailbox Letters Do Not Necessarily Reflect the Views of Town Topics

Replying to Recent Letter On Fire Risks of Large-Scale Wood Housing

To the Editor: This is in reply to Nat Bottigheimer’s letter in the September 27 Mailbox on fire risks of large-scale wood housing. As a society, we are constructing, once again, huge housing complexes and hotels built of wood. Look around at the new megablock luxury condo/apartment complexes. Almost all are wood framed and built with more combustible lightweight and engineered wood than the heavier wood used pre-World War II. The result: conflagrations in heavily populated areas that destroy as many as hundreds of wood condo or apartment homes in a single fire. And sprinklers are not preventing the conflagrations, which would not occur if we built large-scale housing out of non-combustible construction as we used to do. In large-scale wood housing, a single mistake can have catastrophic consequences. Two hundred forty apartment homes were destroyed in a single fire in Edgewater in 2015, and 500 people were permanently displaced. Another conflagration destroyed nearly 100 senior homes in a newly-built upscale retirement community in Georgia and killed one senior. There are frequent massive fires that destroy smaller wood complexes of dozens of condos or apartments. There are also many fires in under-construction megablock wood complexes. Huge construction fires this year in large-scale wood housing this year in Oakland (multiple conflagrations), Boston (multiple conflagrations), Kansas City, and Raleigh spread to surrounding occupied buildings. The construction fire in Kansas City spread burning embers a square mile and burned two dozen surrounding occupied homes. For an up-to-date list go to Facebook’s Massive Fires Damage Lives and scroll down. So far there have not been many deaths in these fires. But death statistics are only one measure of damage. Surviving a major fire and losing one’s home is a traumatic event. Large long-term studies at major medical centers nationwide show that emotional trauma for fire survivors has similar life consequences as physical trauma, including divorce, job loss, anxiety, and depression. Search “Plos One — The Long-Term Impact of Physical and Emotional Trauma: The Station Nightclub Fire” Megablock wood structure fires are conflagrations in which an entire block or more is burning. Multiple fire

companies fight the fires which last many hours, and toxic smoke is released. In Raleigh police warned residents to stay away from the downtown for several days due to unhealthy air. The cost to municipalities in fighting these fires is high, neighborhood communities are destroyed, and the local economy suffers. Citizens and experts are addressing this issue on the local, state, and national level. National code and fire experts, as well as informed citizens, are working for code reform. Note that paid lobbyists from the building industries wield influence on national building and fire code committees. There are seven bills before the New Jersey state legislature. Citizens who have been working on this issue since the Edgewater conflagration support New Jersey bills Senate 1632/Assembly 3770 sponsored by Senators Turner and Bateman and Assembly members Muoio, Gusciora, Zwicker, and Chaparro. It is time to take action at the state and local level for better fire protection in large wood structures. ALExI ASSMuS Maple Street

“Scientists and Scientific Enthusiasts” Write Backing Jenny Ludmer for the Board of Ed

To the Editor: As scientists and scientific enthusiasts, we are well aware of recent national trends which disregard science and abuse rational thought. Thus, we feel it’s necessary to support candidates who understand and value science in our society, and will undoubtedly support scientific education. This is why we are backing Jenny Ludmer, a former scientific analyst and writer, for the Board of Education. One day a year at Littlebrook Elementary, we’ve seen fascinating things happen. Bees, lasers, bubbles, and goats descend upon the school. It’s not uncommon to hear loud chemistry explosions or see marshmallow peeps expand, while words like “central limit theorem” and “bionic eye” come drifting into the halls. For several years, Jenny has demonstrated her passion for scientific education by organizing this inspiring annual event at Littlebrook Elementary, known simply as the Science Expo. An event that can only happen in a town like Princeton, the Expo draws science enthusiasts from industry as well as academia, parents as well as community members, into the school for one full day of action. Classes rotate through the school, so that each child participates in at least a dozen 20-minute engaging presentations. The goal is simply to wow kids with science, so they can imagine a future for themselves in this intriguing world. And they do. Jenny is the willing coordinator of this massive project, eager to work with teachers and parents to make it happen. Pouring her time and energy into this project, literally for



weeks and months every spring, a perfectly-orchestrated color-coded schedule is generated for this one day in May that rivals many airport timetables. Scientists expect her to pull it off, teachers know she will make it happen, and principals trust her to lead the day. Every year that we’ve participated in the Expo, we’ve walked away with a profound sense of respect for the school’s daily work, but also the knowledge that science is loved and respected here. And we who have seen her in the trenches know that this would not happen if it were not for Jenny’s efforts, organization, and determination. Jenny’s long-time commitment to running the Science Expo underscores her view that the future of our community will depend on children that don’t just score well on science tests, memorize facts, or do hours of homework, but on developing children’s sense of wonder and scientific thought. We can see this in every initiative she develops and cultivates, from sustainability efforts — not just in the schools but throughout the community — running the Littlebrook Garden Club, and otherwise speaking out for scientific awareness in the general public. We believe that with her collaborative approach, fierce determination, and sheer grit, Jenny will be a hands-on and effective board member. Furthermore, with her background in scientific research and analysis, she pledges to thoroughly research and review options so that sound, evidence-based decisions can be made. Please consider Jenny Ludmer when you vote on November 7, and in the meantime, check out her website, GABRIELLE CAyTON-HOdGES PHd, AMy ROGERS, OHAd MAyBLuM dodds Lane FORREST MEGGERS PHd dorann Avenue KOSuKE IMAI Randall Road ARI RAIvETZ Bertrand drive yAEL NIv Franklin Avenue

To the Editor: We are writing to endorse Jess Deutsch for the Board of Education (BOE). As parents whose children recently graduated from our district, we feel that Jess is a clear choice to help our school district move forward. We have known Jess and her family for nearly 15 years, and can speak with certainty to her commitment to the children of our community and for the well-being of all Princeton children. As the founder of Princeton Balance, a board member of both the 101 Fund and of HiTops, as well as a former member of the Riverside PTO, Jess is perfectly suited to create the critical conversations and bring the changes needed to support all of our children in making the most of their educational experiences. Jess is well versed in the multiple, complex issues that our district is facing while also having a keen understanding of the district’s strategic plan. She is a listener and problem solver, and she has the judgment and reason that will be necessary to confront the budgetary, space, and communication challenges, and to serve our whole community well. As a long-time public school teacher, I can attest to the importance of having BOE members who have a background in education who understand the needs of our children and district. With an advanced degree in education from Harvard, and years of experience as a professional education advisor, Jess is uniquely qualified to see the issues our district faces from the perspective of a parent, community leader, and, to speak the language of our students and educators. Jess will be at the forefront to ensure that our community will provide to every student in the district a first-rate education, recognizing the urgency of closing the opportunity gap and creative innovative options that will truly prepare our students to thrive. We know she takes seriously the responsibility of making decisions that affect our community for the long-term, and that require the judicious use of our taxpayer dollars. Our three sons have now graduated from PPS as have Jess and Ted’s children. We are impressed and grateful that Jess is choosing to serve now, with the long view of our entire school system. We state with certainty and confidence that Jess has already had a positive imprint on our district. The school board needs her now. There are many fine candidates running who are looking to serve, and we thank them all for their commitment. Jess Deutsch has our enthusiastic support and is our choice for the Princeton Public Schools Board of Education. STEvE AnD nADIA DIGREGORIO William Livingston Court

Reminding Voters Registration Deadline For District 16 Candidates Is October 17

To the Editor: The election for District 16 and all state candidates is on november 7 but the deadline for registration is October 17. With past low voter turnouts in Princeton and elsewhere it is important for people to vote and not take anything for granted, as we learned in last year’s presidential election. Over confidence that your candidate will win, even without your vote, can be a recipe for gross disappointment and worse. If you are a citizen in Princeton and are not registered, you can go to the Clerk’s Office in Town Hall on Witherspoon Street weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Other towns likely have the same process.) It takes about five minutes to complete and sign the form which can be handed to someone in the Clerk’s Office or mailed to Trenton yourself. You can also obtain an absentee ballot at the same Clerk’s office or call the Mercer County Clerk’s office (609) 989-6465 for these forms. Since redistricting about seven years ago, Princeton is now a minority within the larger 16th state district, which includes Hunterdon and Somerset Counties. We are fortunate to have some very good incumbent candidates in Republican Senator kip Bateman and Democrat Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker, as well as new Assembly Democrat candidate Roy Freiman, who has a strong economic business background, much needed now. Sadly, I cannot say the same of Assembly candidate Donna Simon. In her previous brief tenure in the state Assembly (since replaced by Assemblyman Zwicker) she pretty much went along and voted for Governor Christie’s misguided policies including, for example, the scheme to import toxic fracking waste from other states to new Jersey, the state with the highest number of superfund hazardous waste sites in the nation.

She has also been a strong nRA supporter. Even at the gubernatorial level there are several splinter party candidates who could throw the election to an unintended candidate if enough people don’t take the time to vote. voting should be a citizen’s priority as a right and privilege. It also gives you the right to complain if the results are not to your liking. GRACE SInDEn Ridgeview Circle

Montgomery Township Mayor Writes In Support of Cheskis and Caliguire

To the Editor: This election, I am proud to support Montgomery’s hometown team — David Cheskis for Township Committee and Mark Caliguire for new Jersey General Assembly. Both are long-time residents of Montgomery, have distinguished records of community service, and understand how to protect our exceptional quality of life. David has been active in Montgomery for almost 20 years. He was the president of the Pike Run Greens and Master Association boards and holds leadership positions in the local Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. David also has years of valuable experience on our land use boards. First as chair of the Zoning Board and now chair of the Planning Board, David has been protecting Montgomery from unwanted and inappropriate development. Mark has served Montgomery for 14 years as a Township Committee member, mayor, and now a Somerset County Freeholder. He has been a mentor and friend for years and represents Montgomery’s spirit of community involvement. Mark was instrumental with getting our financial house back in order. We are spending below 2005 levels and have cut debt by over $30 million due to the foundation that Mark created for us. He is also a champion of open space and led the effort to preserve Skillman Park, which was at risk of being developed. Beyond these impressive records, I am thrilled to support David and Mark because both have ardently fought against Trenton’s affordable/COAH housing mandate, which I believe represents the biggest threat to our quality of life. Special interest groups are pushing Montgomery to build thousands of new homes that we don’t need or want. As chair of the Planning Board, David has already made a big difference by ensuring developers stick to our strict building standards and fighting for as much open space preservation as possible. While mayor and freeholder, Mark has been on the frontlines working with our state leaders to rewrite affordable housing legislation and has proposed sweeping changes to this reckless mandate. Sadly, Mark’s election opponent doesn’t share the same position. Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker has been AWOL on the topic for years. I met with Zwicker when he first took office to discuss the biggest issues facing Montgomery. Since then, he has proposed no new ideas, no new legislation, and even refused to discuss the issue with me last summer. I guess he doesn’t care about Montgomery or the other suburban towns in his district that are suffering due to Trenton’s housing mandate. On november 7, we have a clear choice. Let’s support our hometown team, David Cheskis and Mark Caliguire. Both care deeply about our community and have proven records of making Montgomery a better place to live.

Julie Ramirez a Refreshing Exception To Overly-Prescriptive Board Candidates

To the Editor: As I read about and listen to the positions of the school board candidates, I am concerned about the overly-prescriptive statements of some candidates. Some seem to see the school board as a PTO on steroids, rather than as financial stewards of public assets and a policy making fiduciary body serving our entire community. Julie Ramirez is a refreshing exception, and would be an excellent addition to the Board of Education. now more than ever, we need school board members who have relevant financial expertise and professional leadership skills. I worked with Julie for five years in a professional setting where managing expectations, time, and money was key. The initiatives she worked on impacted peoples’ lives on a global scale and they required careful planning and pragmatic execution. Her work required a grasp of the big-picture considerations and attention to the fine details in equal measure, and this is where Julie excels. Like all good leaders, Julie holds herself accountable. She does the research to understand a problem, takes responsibility for the solution, and owns the results. I trust Julie to represent all Princeton students and taxpayers rather than narrow interests and agendas. She will act in a manner that reflects her understanding that money doesn’t grow on trees. She will ensure the schools achieve broad academic success for all students, while prioritizing the children’s wellbeing. As the very involved parent of four wonderful kids in the Princeton schools, Julie knows our district well and has a clear vision of where we need to go. I am glad that she is ready to share her many talents with the Princeton community. When you vote on november, 7, please join me in supporting Julie Ramirez for the Princeton Public Schools Board of Education. kIRk WILLIAMSOn Cleveland Lane

Books “I Hear My People Singing” Subject Of Oct. 12 Discussion at Public Library

Nell Irvin Painter As part of the Princeton and Slavery Project, author, historian, artist, biographer a n d E d w a r d s P r ofe s s or Emeritus of American History at Princeton University Nell Irvin Painter will discuss the book I Hear My People Singing: Voices of African Amer ican Pr inceton by Kathryn “Kitsi” Watterson.

The event, which takes place on Thursday, October 12 from 1 to 2 p.m., is free and open to the public. Recent ly published by Princeton University Press, the book grew out of an oral history project that began in 1999, when Watterson enlisted her Princeton University students to help her and her neighborhood partners save the stories of a generation who had grown up in the Jim Crow town of Princeton, New Jersey, where segregation was a way of life in the schools, restaurants, stores, and on campus. Their words, excerpted from 55 interviews, provide an account connecting the residents of the Witherspoon-Jackson community to the lives lived by their enslaved grandparents, g r e at- g r a n d p a r e nt s a n d great-greats before them. As one reader wrote: “Read-

Let’s Get

ing this book is not an intellectual exercise. It takes us into the human experience. The power of the individual opens our eyes and hearts to other people’s lives and becomes woven into our own.” According to McCar ter T h e at r e A r t i s t i c D i r e c tor Emily Mann, “Kathryn Watterson has devoted her entire life as a writer to issues of justice. From the A mer ican pr ison system to women’s rights and the stories of people of color, few writers in this country have captured the humanity and heroism of the disenfranchised like Watterson. I Hear My People Singing stands alone in its telling of stories untold, stories essential to understanding the unwritten history of America. At this moment in time, this beautiful book is essential reading.” T h e P r i n c e to n P u b l i c Librar y is located at 65 Witherspoon Street ( For more information about the Princeton and Slavery Project, visit slaverysymposium.

Book on Black Holes Discussed by Gubser

Steven Gubser will talk about The Little Book of Black Hole s ( P r inceton Univ. Press) at Labyrinth Books on Wednesday, October 18 at 6 p.m. Roger Penrose, author of Fashion, Faith, and Fantasy in the New Physics of the Universe says that the book by Gubser and Frans Pretorius “provides an elegantly brief introduction to the basic properties of black holes and their occurrence in the universe. I warmly recommend it to the general reader.” After introducing the basics of the special and general theories of relativity, Gubser and his coauthor Pretorius describe black holes both as astrophysical objects and theoretical “laboratories” in which physicists can test their understanding of gravitational, quantum, and thermal physics. From Schwarzschild black holes to rotating and colliding black holes, and from gravitational radiation to Hawking radiation and information loss, the authors use creative thought experiments and analogies to explain their subject accessibly. They also describe the decades-long quest to observe gravitational waves in the universe, which recently resulted in the LIGO observatorie’s detection of the distinctive gravitational wave “chirp” of two colliding black holes — the first direct observation of black holes’ existence. Steven Gubser is professor of physics at Princeton University. His new book follows the acclaimed and popular Little Book of String Theory. Frans Pretorius is professor of physics at Princeton. Both are Princeton residents. ———

Women Writers Topic At Lawrence Library

The Lawrence Headquarters Branch of the Mercer County Library System is hosting the Central New Jersey Region of the Jane Austen Society of North America for a talk by Princeton professors Deborah Nord and Maria DiBattista on Sunday, October 15 at 2 p.m. The speakers will be discussing their book, At Home in the

World: Women Writers and Public Life, from Austen to the Present.

Israel-Wilentz Conversation At Labyrinth October 16

Jonathan Israel and Sean Wilentz will be talking about Israel’s new book, The Expanding Blaze : How the American Revolution Ignited the World (Princeton Univ. Press) at Labyrinth Books on Monday, October 16 at 6 p.m. The book shows how the radical ideas of American founders set the pattern for democratic revolutions, movements, and constitutions in France, Britain, Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Greece, Canada, Haiti, Brazil, and Spanish America. According to Gary B. Nash, author of The Unknown American Revolution: The Unruly Birth of Democracy and the Struggle to Create America: “Six decades after R. R. Palmer’s epic Age of the Democratic Revolution, Jonathan Israel has revived and powerfully extended the argument about the worldshaking reach of the radical ideas of the American Revolution: universal and equal rights, democratic republicanism, secular rather than religious rule, and justice for all. In a shrewd, captivating analysis of the Atlantic-wide contest between the moderate and radical elements of the Enlightenment from the American Revolution to the revolutions of 1848, Israel shows that while the lamp of radical Enlightenment ideas could be deplored, dampened, and suppressed, it was impossible for generations

Mendelsohn wears his learning lightly yet superbly. Daniel Mendelsohn is an American memoirist, essayist, critic, columnist, and translator, and is professor of humanities at Bard College. His most recent book prior to An Odyssey is Waiting for the Barbarians: Essays from the Classics to Pop Culture.

It reads “To be sold… two Negro women, a negro man, and three negro children.” McCarter Theatre is staging The Princeton & Slavery Plays, with a post-show community conversation led by facilitators from the organization Not in Our Town, which is committed to racial justice. The seven short plays were created from documents uncovered as part of the research project. Short films by University students will be presented at the library, and the documentary Facing Slavery: Princeton Family Stories by University alumnus Melvin McCray will be shown at the Garden Theatre as part of the four-day symposium. The November 16-19 series of panels, discussions, and student presentations is the heart of the project, scheduled for different locations on and off the campus. Events are free and open to the public; some require tickets which are already running low. “It will be challenging for everyone to get tickets,” says Sandweiss. “There is so much interest. I know that McCarter has added a third performance of the plays to

accommodate the demand.” The research website that goes live November 6, which will include primary documents and many other items of interest, will continue to be built upon. Sandweiss wants to keep some of it under wraps until the official unveiling. “We’ll wait to talk about the content,” she says. “There is just so much documentation. Any research project is full of surprises. That’s why it’s fun to be a historian.” Sandweiss continues, “I just hope people will be excited to learn about where they live and where they are from, and understand we have not recovered all the stories there are to recover. But we have an awful lot. Whatever conversation ensues, it’s going to be such an informed conversation. And that really excites me.” For a complete list of events, v is it slaver ys y mp os iu m. —Anne Levin

Womanspace, which will get $20,000, was chosen to receive one of the annual grants to further the organization’s efforts to combat domestic violence and provide rehabilitation services throughout Mercer County.

Other recipients use the unrestricted funds for basic operating expenses, hiring much-needed personnel, completing repairs and renovations or adding programs and resources based on the unique needs of their shelter and the clients they serve. “We are incredibly grateful for the support from The Mary Kay Foundation and its continued commitment to break the cycle of domestic violence,” said Lauren Nazarian, director of development. “We are thrilled that Mar y Kay has par tnered with us yet again, and providing funds for our Safe House. The Womanspace Safe House is open 24/7, with over 200 women and children coming through our Safe House each year. We thank the Mary Kay Foundation for your continued generosity and support for our Safe House.” Founded in 1977, Womanspace, Inc. is a leading nonprofit agency in Mercer County with a mission to prevent abuse, protect families and change lives through empowerment and a safety net of supportive services. Womanspace bilingual (English and Spanish) programs include 24-hour crisis intervention through crisis hotlines, response teams, and emergency shelter; counseling for adults and children, court advocacy, and housing services. Last year Womanspace served 11,107 adults and children, impacted by domestic and sexual violence. “More than 700 domestic violence shelters nationwide applied for The Mary Kay Foundation shelter grants this year, which demonstrates the overwhelming need to maintain critical services and provide a safe haven for the survivors of an epidemic that impacts one in every four women,” said Anne Crews, board member of The Mary Kay Foundation and Vice President of Public Affairs for Mary Kay Inc. “Working to prevent and end domestic violence is a cornerstone of The Foundation, Mary Kay Inc. and for countless members of our independent sales force. Since 2000, The Foundation has invested tens of millions of dollars in our shelter grant program and without a doubt, we know these funds make a difference in homes and communities across the country.” Mar y Kay Inc.’s global c a u s e - r e l a te d p r o g r a m , Beauty that Counts, helps support The Foundation’s annual shelter grant program.

Rework America aims to map out a better future for workers, so that automation can benefit everyone.” A charitable organization headquartered in New York City with a history of making recommendations and influencing policy at the highest levels of government, the Markle Foundation proposes to “advance a new labor market system that will allow job seekers to identify and prepare for in-demand jobs, employers to find and train workers with the skills their businesses need, and educators to identify and teach the skills our economy demands,” according to its mission statement for RATF. Krueger served as chairman of President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers and a member of the Cabinet from 2011 to 2013. Before that he was assistant secretary for economic policy and chief economist of the U.S. Department of the Treasury from 2009 to 2010 and chief economist at the U.S. Department of Labor from 2004 to 2005.

Supported by the Carnegie Corporation, Microsoft Philanthropies, the Pritzker Traubert Family Foundation, and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund in addition to Markle, the RATF will make recommendations to fix a U.S. labor market suffering from millions of unfilled jobs, because employers cannot find skilled workers, and at the same time millions of capable workers who are unemployed or underemployed. —Donald Gilpin

The Lewis School provided such a special and personalized way of learning that helped me to understand my learning differences and build confidence.

Meredith Remz Exhibit at Blawenburg Cafe

Meredith Remz debuts her work at Blawenburg Cafe in Skillman this fall with a solo exhibition of expressive collage paintings. The exhibit will be on display through January 5, 2018. It is is free and open to the public, child-friendly, and all art is for sale. Remz’s paintings are best known for their movement, radiant colors, and staggering birch trees. Several of her new works depict her sculpture roots in the way that she constructs deep layers consisting of latex pai nt, pat ter ne d pap er, papier maché, and glue. “There is no wrong answer here,” said Remz. Additionally, Remz often trades her paint brushes for unconventional art-making tools such as kitchen spatulas, spoons, and wood sticks. Remz says she draws inspiration from contemporary and industrial design, as well as Mother Nature. She was employed as a carpenter for a local construction company for many years where she was cross-trained in carpen“BELLE”: The collage paintings of Meredith Remz are on exhibit at Blawenburg Cafe in Skillman try, sheet rock, and tile. through January 5, 2018.

“Out of the Past”: Celebrating 97 Years of the Garden With Robert Mitchum and Stew’s “Passing Strange”


ovie actors are not always the most quotable beings. The value of their words depends not on substance or style so much as gossip potential, career-advancement, otherwise known as the publicity quotient. Then you have one-of-a-kind people like Robert Mitchum, who was born 100 years ago, August 6, 1917. Unless Mitchum has a ghostwriter named Hemingway slipping him gems, what he says fits perfectly with the big man dwarfing the screen at the Garden two summers ago in Out of the Past. Anyone who has seen Mitchum in that film or in other RKO noirs like Where Danger Lives will recognize him in these words — “Listen. I got three expressions: looking left, looking right, and looking straight ahead.” I hope Hemingway read that line before he died. Speaking of publicity, Mitchum once said of the stories about him in the media: “Booze, brawls, broads, all true. Make up some more if you want to.” Another line that could have been ghostwritten by Hemingway: “When I drop dead [he died in 1997] and they rush to the drawer, there’s going to be nothing in it but a note saying ‘later.’” There’s no note in the last paragraph of A Farewell to Arms, when Frederic Henry is alone with the body of Catherine, just this: “It was like saying goodbye to a statue.” I could fill a column with Mitchum wisdom but I want to get back to the Garden, where we saw him as he’s meant to be seen, not in the confines of an 11-inch Sony or a 36-inch flat screen. It’s no surprise that a force of cinema who is so good at communicating his actorly ambiance attracts a lot of interesting commentary. As Mitchum puts it, “I never take any notice of reviews — unless a critic has thought up some new way of describing me. That old one about my lizard eyes and anteater nose and the way I sleep my way through pictures is so hackneyed now.” Agee on Mitchum He’s echoing James Agee, whose April 24, 1948 review of Out of the Past in The Nation notes that Mitchum “is so very sleepily self-confident with the women that when he slopes into clinches you expect him to snore in their faces.” Five months earlier in his TIME review of the same film, Agee writes: “In love scenes his curious languor, which suggests Bing Crosby supersaturated with barbiturates, becomes a brand of sexual complacency that is not endearing.” In fact, two of Mitchum’s most memorable performances have a James Agee connection. Writing at length in The Nation about The Story of G.I. Joe (Sept. 15, 1945), the first of Mitchum’s 110 films, Agee praises the “anti-histrionic acting,” adding “It would be impossible in this connection to say enough in praise of the performance of Bob Mitchum as the Captain.” Ten years later, he gave the

performance of his career as the psychotic preacher in Charles Laughton’s Night of the Hunter. Agee’s screenplay is reprinted in the Library of America’s volume of his writing on film. David Thomson’s Biographical Dictionary of Film (1994 edition) calls Mitchum “one of the best actors in the movies.” To demonstrate “the idea of a man thinking and feeling beneath a calm exterior” Thomson quotes an exchange from Out of the Past in which a taxi driver tells Mitchum’s character “You look like you’re in trouble.” When Mitchum asks, “Why?” the cabbie says, “Because you don’t look like it.” The Garden Is Almost 100 According to, Princeton’s Garden Theater “is, without question, the best movie theater in New Jersey,” a decision based on “tallying thousands of votes” and visits to each of the five finalists. A March 3, 2017 statement declares that t he G arden is the theater “that best ser ves it s com mu nity, with a robust and unique programming schedule that caters to casual movieg o e r s, f i l m buffs, college students, live t heater aficionados and more.” The rebirth of the Garden in 2014 under the enlightened guidance of Renew Theaters has revitalized moviegoing in Princeton. It feels special to be a member, to know that you have a stake in this unique venue. Contrary to Groucho Marx’s famous dictum, I’m proud to join this club, not only after seeing Mitchum larger than life on that Hollywood Summer Night two years ago but during recent special presentations like Ken Loach’s stunning I, Daniel Blake and Spike Lee’s film of Stew’s musical Passing Strange, with Stew himself on hand to answer questions from the audience. What’s ultimately more impressive than the Garden’s number one ranking statewide is its longevity. Think of it: films

have been shown on this site more or less continuously for almost 100 years. If you can relate to the idea that movie theaters are peopled by phantoms, then the Garden has to be among the most venerable haunted houses on the planet. Films have been lurking in the building, whatever its shape or size, from September 20, 1920, when the ghostly parade began with a live orchestra and a stage decked out in palms and ferns for a picture called Civilian Clothes starring Thomas Meighan (18791936). So it’s been, the shades of the silents, the Chaplins and Keatons, Garbos and Valentinos making way for the talkies, singers and dancers, gangsters and cowboys leading the way into the wartime 40s of spies and soldiers, film noir femme fatales and fortune hunters in a realm where the shades have shadows, until the threat of television forced the screen to stretch wider and wider b eyond t he d ig ita l m i l lennium to a venue large e n ou g h for all the arts, from first-run films, filmed t h e at r e , to the phantom reunions of the Garden’s Hollywood Summer Nights. Although Thomas Meighan was no Valentino, he soared to stardom (as the fan mags would say ) the previous year as the leader of a gang of con artists in The Miracle Man, which is now best known for Lon Chaney’s performance as the gang member called The Frog, a contortionist who poses as a cripple. Meighan also attracted notice in Cecil B. deMille’s box office sensations Male and Female, (1919), opposite Gloria Swanson, and Manslaughter (1922), notorious for flashing back to a Roman orgy while Meighan is watching some flappers innocently gamboling on pogo sticks. Louise Brooks Reborn One film of Meighan’s I would give a lot to see is James Cruze’s The City Gone Wild (1927), whose main claim to fame is the lively and luminous presence of Louise Brooks as a character called Snuggles Joy.

Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House Friday - Saturday: 2:25, 4:55, 7:25, 9:55, Sunday - Thursday: 2:25, 4:55, 7:25 (PG-13)

Since this film, like Civilian Clothes, was distributed by Paramount, as were most of Brooks’s pictures, it’s safe to say that Louise lit up the screen at the Garden on more than one occasion. Hers is my favorite Hollywood ghost story: beautiful Kansas teenager goes to the big city, becomes a Ziegfield girl, hangs out with Chaplin, brightens every picture she appears in, stands up to the studios, is blackballed, spotted by German director G.W. Pabst who stars her in two films that make an impression in Europe, meanwhile she lands in Manhattan, a sales girl at Saks, drinking too much in Third Avenue dives, and is over 50 when Pabst’s Pandora’s Box brings her back from the dead, a revival she takes advantage of by writing brilliantly on her life in the film business. Stew’s In the House Coincidentally, Stew’s in-person presentation of Passing Strange took place on September 20, 97 years to the day the Garden opened. One of the most moving moments in the film comes from a threepart work called “The Drug Suite” on Stew’s acclaimed solo album, The Naked Dutch Painter (2002). Add to that the pleasure of listening to lines like “Sitting on the balcony watching the rail rust/slipping through my fingers like angel dust” when the composer himself is sitting only a few seats away from you in the same theater. It gets better after the show when he’s perched on a stool listening as you tell him how much his music has meant to you and your family. Holden Caulfield imagines phoning Scott Fitzgerald to thank him for The Great Gatsby. How great to be able to say thanks to Stew, face to face, for extraordinary works like “Cold Parade,” where he sings about a “collection of the lost.” At first you think you’re hearing a tale told by a stalker of women out of some film noir with a creepy score; but then the stalker becomes as vulnerable as his victim (“She sees me and assumes I’m up to no good and it’s true,/but the only ‘no good’ I’m up to is not knowing what to do”). After clarifying the nature of “the night’s cold parade” (“Don’t expect a float or a band/A broken majorette may bum a cigarette and offer you her hand”), the song builds and builds until by the end something like a passion of compassion seizes the singer, the words becoming desperately bitter and bleak (“I only walk these streets because I cannot be left alone”): “The crossword puzzles and playoff games and porno sites galore cannot contain or ease the pain, they don’t work any more.” It’s a wildly ambitious song: cabaret, folk, rock and roll, jazz, and great acting, all in one. he parade goes on in the Garden, where a few days later the streets of Newcastle are on the screen for the passing of Ken Loach’s cold parade, another collection of the lost. —Stuart Mitchner

commonly known as the “Muslim Ban”. In response, the Institute for Advanced Study issued a public statement condemning these discriminatory restrictions as being contrary to our values. Concerned by the fate of the people of the affected nations, the School of Social Science and the School of Historical Studies will curate in 2017-2018 a film series titled “From the Banned Countries” in homage to the creativity and engagement of their cinema. The first film of the series is Last Men in Aleppo by Syrian writer and director Firas Fayyad, who was arrested by the intelligence services of the Assad regime because of his work on this film. Released in 2017, the film has won praise and prizes, including the Sundance Festival World Documentary Grand Jury Award. It follows the so-called white helmets, Syrian men who, at the risk of their lives, decided to stay in the besieged and bombed city to rescue people buried under collapsed buildings. During the 2016 presidential campaign, one of the candidates was asked by a journalist what he would do, if he were elected, about Aleppo: “What is Aleppo?” he responded. Firad Fayyad’s documentary will provide an answer. Coincidentally, an extension of the ban to three other countries will go into effect on October 18. ———

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

Biopic Chronicles Career and Life of “Wonder Woman” Creator

Sales Associate


Cell: 609-933-7886

illiam Moulton Marston (Luke Evans) was a Renaissance man with an impressive array of talents. After earning his BA, PhD, and law degrees, the Harvard graduate taught psychology at Radcliffe. Despite a demanding academic career, he found time to write self-help books and to invent the precursor of the lie detector. To this day, however, he remains best remembered as the creator of Wonder Woman. Selling the idea to a comic book publisher in 1941 was no mean feat, since until then, Superman, Batman, The Flash, Captain Marvel, The Green Lantern, and all the other superheroes, were male. The character Marston envisioned was not just a powerful crime-fighter, but also was an attractive Amazon whose eroticism and dominance were deemed to be sexual and sado-masochistic in nature by her detractors. Although Wonder Woman wore a skimpy outfit, as did Superman, and used a rope to subdue and restrain adversaries, the comic books were far from pornographic. Marston had been inspired by the success of the suffrage

R E A L E S T AT E 609-921-2600

movement that helped advance the feminist cause. In fact, he once stated that “The only hope for civilization is the greater freedom, development, and equality of women.” Another source of inspiration were the two women in Marston’s life; his wife, Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall), and their longtime lover, Olive (Bella Heathcote). He would father children with each woman, and they all lived under the same roof, although the scandalous arrangement led to the family being shunned by polite society. Written and directed by Alexandra Robinson, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women is an intriguing and informative biopic that finally awards a brilliant visionary, who had been marginalized by history, his due. Thanks to our more enlightened LBGTQ-embracing times, William Moulton Marston can finally be fully appreciated. Excellent (HHHH). Rated R for profanity, graphic sexuality, and lewd images. Running time: 108 minutes. Production Studio: Stage 6 Films/Boxspring Entertainment/ Topple Productions. Distributor: Annapurna Pictures. —Kam Williams

Star Receiver Horsted Helps Get Rally Going As PU Football Roars Past Georgetown 50-30


s the leadoff hitter for the Princeton University baseball team, Jesper Horsted looks to start rallies for the Tigers. Doubling as a star receiver for the Princeton football team, Horsted displayed his ability to start a rally on the gridiron as the Tigers hosted Georgetown last Saturday. With Princeton trailing the Hoyas 10-0 late in the first quarter, Horsted hauled in a 13-yard touchdown pass from Chad Kanoff to get the Tigers on the board. “I was running a five-step and I was looking at the QB,” said Horsted, a 6’4, 215-pound native of Shoreview, Minn. “The defensive back was probably expecting me to run a fade after seeing that a couple of times on film. I think he was playing that and I ended up cutting inside. It was a good play call by coach and the ball was right there, it was wide open.” While Horsted acknowledged that the Princeton players were frustrated by their sluggish play at the outset on Saturday, he was proud of how the Tigers bounced back, scoring 36 unanswered points to build a 36-10 lead by halftime on the way to a 50-30 victory before 4,466 at Princeton Stadium. “We were able to turn it around and get off to a good

BY GEORGE: Princeton University football player Jesper Horsted races upfield last Saturday against visiting Georgetown. Junior star receiver Horsted made nine catches for 112 yards and a touchdown to help Princeton rally from a 10-0 deficit on the way to a 50-30 win over the Hoyas. Princeton, now 3-1 overall and 0-1 Ivy League, plays at Brown (2-2 overall, 0-1 Ivy) on October 14. (Photo by Frank Wojciechowski) to Horsted and Stephen Carlson (5 catches for 87 yards and 1 TD) is a good time for Kanoff. “Jesper is a stud; he has got really good hands and he is fast,” said Kanoff. “We have so many good players and he is one of them. Stephen Carlson is good and we have a really good O-line. It is a fun offense to be part of.” With Princeton heading into the thick of its Ivy League season, starting with a game at Brown (2-2 over-

all, 0-1 Ivy) on October 14, Kanoff is looking for a good stretch drive. “We have got a chip on our shoulder for the rest of the year,” said Kanoff, noting that the defeat to Columbia will be fueling the Tigers. Horsted, for his part, echoes those sentiments. “The guys are really excited, especially after we lost that last Ivy League game,” said Horsted. “We want to come back with a vengeance.” —Bill Alden

The bounces had gone against the Princeton University men’s soccer team this fall as it started 1-52 with each of the defeats coming by one goal. Last Wednesday evening against visiting Villanova, Princeton freshman midfielder Kevin O’Toole kicked the Tigers into the win column, assisting on a goal by Benji Issroff in the first minute of the contest and later curling the ball into the top corner of the net with 18 minutes remaining in the second half for his first career tally and the finishing touch on a 2-0 win. “We have been harping on putting away our chances; we have created so many this season but they just haven’t fallen our way,” said O’Toole. “It was a big relief to get mine and Benji really gave us a great start with getting his earlier in the game. It built some confidence going forward for us.” O’Toole displayed confidence on his goal, not hesitating to pull the trigger when he saw his chance.

“I played a ball into [Jeremy] Colvin and I saw that there was no one else ready to support so he just laid it off to me and I tried to make the best of it,” said O’Toole. “I saw there was one defender left so I just tried to take advantage and cut back on my left foot. It looked like it was a good trajectory to the corner. I got a good look at it and I was hoping the keeper didn’t get a hand on it.” Getting his first college goal will provide a very good memory for O’Toole. “It feels amazing; I have had chances before to put away in Syracuse and other games,” added O’Toole, a 5’10, 155-pound native of Montclair, N.J. “It just feels good to get that first one and I am hoping to keep going.” O’Toole ack nowledged that making the jump to college soccer has put him under pressure. “I would say definitely the physicality; especially in the first 20 minutes of college

soccer games, it can be really hectic,” said O’Toole. “Playing in the midfield position, it is important to get the ball off of your feet quick, which I hadn’t been used to in prior years playing at left back.” Things are starting to be less hectic on the field for O’Toole. “I am starting to get a feel for the game, my teammates have been great in the transition process,” said O’Toole. “It is a great group of guys.” Princeton head coach Jim Barlow was relieved to see his team get off to a great start against Villanova. “We haven’t had many of those this year; Villanova is a good team and getting the first goal is really important,” said Barlow. “It is another game where I thought in stretches, we played really well. The difference this time is defensively, we made sure that we stayed with it for 90 minutes and kept our focus. We didn’t let one or two plays get away from us.” Barlow tipped his hat to the play of freshman Richard Wolf, junior Henry Martin, sophomore Bobby Hickson, sophomore Issroff, and senior Matt Mangini along the Tiger back line. “I thought Wolf was the guy who kept it together in the back, but Henry and Bobby did a really good job

too,” said Barlow. “They were really solid back there with Benji sitting in front of them. Matt has been dealing with some injuries so we tried to rest him for a half and brought him in the second half and I thought he did a good job.” O’Toole has been doing a good job on a daily basis for the Tigers. “Kevin has been solid for us all year,” said Barlow. “It is good to see him starting to add more to the attack, getting shots and creating chances.” With Princeton hosting Columbia on October 14, Barlow is looking for his players to be more clinical in finishing their chances. “We lead the league in shots taken and we haven’t given up a goal in the first half all year so our problem has been conceding late in games and losing leads,” lamented Barlow, whose team followed that pattern last Saturday, falling 1-0 at Brown on a late goal to drop to 2-6-2 overall and 0-2 Ivy League. In O’Toole’s view, the win over Villanova shows the Tigers that they can hold a lead. “So many tough losses down the stretch can really kill morale,” said O’Toole. “We have a team mantra, one in a row, and so we will take this one in a row. It is great to get one and hopefully keep it snowballing as we go through the Ivy League.” —Bill Alden

Mary Kate Neff has faced a steep learning curve this fall in her freshman season with the Princeton University field hockey team. “It is just learning to play the system and play the role the team needs me to play,” said Neff. “It is a higher speed, it is a lot of aggression and just being able to sustain that level to play smar t and make good decisions throughout the whole game. I find myself all over the field but I really do enjoy midfield, getting to play on both sides of the field and helping out where I can.” Neff proved to be a big help last Friday against visiting Columbia, scoring a pair of goals in a 24-second span in the second half as 14th-ranked Princeton broke open a tight 1-0 contest on the way to a 3-0 victory. “The first one it was just a really good insert on a set play,” said Neff. “We practice corners over and over again; it is nice to be finally able to execute one.” Neff’s second tally of the evening came on a deft pass from childhood friend and fellow freshman Julianna Tornetta. “Julianna spoon-fed the ball to me; we have known each other since we were real young,” said Neff, a 5’7 native of Villanova, Pa. who now has five goals this season, second-best on the Tigers behind senior star Ryan McCarthy (10). “She is such a high level player and she makes everyone around her look better. She put the ball in the right spot at the end.” Neff and her teammates knew they needed a high level of intensity to subdue a pesky Columbia squad. “Ivy League games bring out the most grit for everyone on the team,” said Neff. “It is a lot of pride and a lot of passion; everyone likes to win because we only face each other once. We have a lot of respect for each other off the field but on the field everyone looks to win.” The win over the Lions moved Princeton to 3-0 in Ivy play as the Tigers look to regain the league crown after seeing their 11-year t it le s t rea k snapped in 2016. “I am happy we stacked our schedule so hard in the beginning because I feel like now we have come into our own,” said Neff. “We are just improving every single game. As you could see tonight, we strung a lot of passes along.” Pr inceton head coach Carla Tagliente is excited with the improvement she is seeing from Neff. “MK did a great job today; she has been doing really well game by game,” said Tagliente. “She has really come a long way, step by step. Each game we will look at something with her and improve it. It is mostly tactics with her. She has really been a sponge with picking things up and making changes game by game.” Tagliente is looking for the Tigers to improve on their play around goal.

“We’ve just got to do better about making the ball dangerous in the circle,” said Tagliente. “I think we hold it a little too long and just look to set up a shot. They are just not pulling the trigger; it is like they are looking for the perfect situation to shoot the ball.” Princeton produced one of its better defensive efforts in blanking Columbia. “They did a great job, I think this team is challenging to play against,” said Tagliente. “They have some big bodies up front who play with their backs to our defenders. We had a little bit of a hard time in the first half. Once we weathered that storm, we were fine.” As the Tigers go through their Iv y campaign, Tagliente is hoping that they can storm past their league competition. “The league isn’t easy and we are young,” said Tagliente. “Part of it for these guys is figuring out really how to establish t hems elves and play and create some separation between these teams.” Being more opportunistic will help make things easier for Princeton going forward. “We have got to be able to score more goals on corners,” added Tagliente, whose team fell 5-3 to No. 1 Connecticut last Sunday to move to 6-6 and plays at Brown on October 14 and at Northeastern on October 15. “We hit a couple of posts today. The execution was good; we just didn’t get as many goals as I wanted. It will come.” Neff, for her part, sees good things ahead for the Tigers. “We have been talking about finding our identity,” said Neff. “We want to be known as a team that plays with a lot of composure and discipline but is also very aggressive and attacking, using our speed to our advantage. We are all feeling really confident.” —Bill Alden

Sparked by Marciano’s Return from Injury, PHS Girls’ Soccer Piling Up Goals, Wins Colette Marciano is making up for lost time after being sidelined for the first few weeks this fall in her senior season with the Princeton High girls’ soccer team. “I had an injury with my hamstring and I missed the first four or five games,” said Marciano. “It was killing me; I am glad I am back now and we are on a roll.” Last Friday against visiting Ewing, Marciano helped PHS get on a roll, giving PHS a 1-0 lead with a brilliant volley some 10 minutes into the contest. “I think when we started the game, we were a little shaky,” said Marciano. “I went for it. I saw the goalie come out a little bit. I chipped it over her head.” After Ewing responded with a goal to knot the contest at 1-1, Marciano and fellow senior and co-captain Devon Lis both found the back of the net to give the Little Tigers a 3-1 lead at halftime as PHS went on to a 5-2 victory for its fifth

straight win and improved to 7-3-1. The duo of Marciano and Lis has been in synch for a long time. “I put one in again and Devon put one in; we took control,” said Marciano. “We have been playing together since we were eight. We have always been pretty close. We know were we are going to be; it has come from that time together and the bond we have formed. We always read where the other one is going to run and find each other, so that is always good. We always find a way to get the job done, one of us. We are always on the same page.” In reflecting on the team’s hot streak, Marciano believes that PHS’s patience in setting up its attack has led to the good run of form. “I think we were playing a little frantic; kick and run is a style a lot of teams play in the CVC but that is not what we aspire to play,” said Marciano. “We aspire to play possession and once we

IN CONTROL: Princeton High girls’ soccer player Colette Marciano controls the ball in a game last season.

clicked into that, we started winning.” PHS head coach Val Rodriguez likes the way her team has been playing over the last few weeks. “Things are starting to click; it is that point in the season,” said Rodriguez. “We have got everybody healthy. We are playing in the formation that we want. We are possessing the way we want to; we are building attacks from the back up.” The return of Marciano and the renewal of her partnership with Lis helped get PHS clicking. “Having Colette back is a huge, huge change in the dynamics of the team,” said Rodriguez. “It is not only her scoring but her possession game and her team play. She looks to distribute that ball and does that really well. She has great chemistr y with Devon. They get each other, they work hard. It is a good mix.” On defense, senior Abaigeal Ryan has been scoring as well as helping to fortify the back line. “Ryan is a rock; she is smart,” said Rodriguez of Ryan, who tallied a goal in the win over Ewing. “She is not really a soccer player, she calls herself a lacrosse player. She understands when to go for ward and when to hold that space for us. She puts herself in the right spots; she finishes it with composure.” In Rodriguez’s view, her team’s effort in the win over a feisty Ewing is a good sign with tournament time on the horizon. “Ewing has some tough players and talented players,” said Rodriguez, whose team hosts Trenton High on October 12 and Hopewell Valley on October 16. “That shows a lot about our character, our heart, and our talent on the field to get the job done.” Marciano, who declined an offer to play for a development academy that would have caused her to forego her senior season at PHS, is ready to play her heart out this fall for the Little Tigers. “I wanted to make sure that I was here,” said Marciano, who has committed to attend Columbia University and will play for its women’s soccer team. “It is important to me; it is my last season and my sister [Shaylah] is playing goalie. It is good.” —Bill Alden

Senior Star Beamer Growing Into Top Scorer As PHS Boys’ Soccer Gets Off to 8-2-1 Start Drew Beamer has grown into a top scorer for the Princeton High boys’ soccer team. Having broken into the lineup as a defender in his freshman season in the fall of 2014, Beamer eventually moved into the midfield due to his athleticism and versatility. This fall, the lanky Beamer has assumed an attacking midfielder role right behind the team’s forward line and has emerged as one of the top finishers in the area. Last Wednesday against visiting WW/P-North, Beamer displayed his finishing touch, scoring two goals to help PHS prevail 4-0. “I think it is lot of that (being moved up) and I think it is a lot of better endurance. I can make more runs,” said Beamer reflecting on his hot start which has seen him tally a team-high 12 goals so far this season. “I have gotten a bit taller.” WW/P-North had PHS on the run in the early stages of the contest. “We came into this game knowing that they were a good team ; they played really well with one-two touch passes,” said Beamer. “At the end of the day, we could just put the ball in.” Beamer put in the first goal of the contest, heading in a pass from classmate Dean Patel with 13:37 left in first half. “I saw Dean’s ball coming near post so I collapsed on it and flicked it on,” said Beamer. “I think that is a general rule with our team. We get one and we will put a bunch in the back of the net. We will go from there.” With 14 seniors on the roster, PHS has developed a special unity on and off the field. “Our team chemistry is great,” said Beamer. “We are all from the same group of friends. We all joke around every day.” While he may share a lot of laughs with his teammates, Beamer is taking a serious approach in his final campaign. “This is my last year; I know what I need to do on the field,” said Beamer. PHS head coach Wayne Sutcliffe is thrilled with what Beamer has been doing this fall. “We are playing him a little higher up the field; he is attacking center mid,” said Sutcliffe. “We try to play him underneath the striker, he is getting into the attack. He is incredibly mobile so he covers a lot of ground. Beamer can get himself into good spots in the box, which not every guy can do.” The Little Tigers found themselves in a tough spot against WW/P-North before taking the lead. “North had only dropped one game prior; they are having a good season and and have a lot of quality,” said Sutcliffe. “They were knocking it and had us chasing a little but I think we adjusted well and hung in there. Then the first goal was great; that is what one goal can do for you. We settled in.” Senior midfielder Patel showed his quality in the

win, picking up two assists. “Dean has found his form in his partnership with Drew and Noam [Davidov] underneath,” said Sutcliffe. “We couldn’t be happier with his season so far. Last year he was a forward and we are finding he is better facing the goal and he doesn’t have to have his back to the goal as a striker.” Sutcliffe is ver y happy with the play of junior midfielder Sebastian Ratzan, who tallied two goals and an assist against the Northern Knights. “Sebastian’s speed brings another dimension to his game and our team; with his versatility where he can play either wide or up front as a striker,” said Sutcliffe. “He can find the goal. He is not afraid to fail when he goes to goal; that is an asset in his characteristics as a player. He is finding the back of the net.” The defensive unit proved to be an asset for the Little Tiger, keeping WW/P-North from finding the back of the net. “I am so happy, they were knocking it early, so that is credit to Ian Jacobs, Jasper Scott, and Noah Middleka-

uff in the center,” said Sutcliffe. “I have to say the other two, Tom Reid on the left and Jun Hasegawa on the right, did well too; there was a lot of quality. Pat [senior goalie Patrick Jacobs] had to face a couple of tests today but not a lot. We want to keep him out of trouble.” Although PHS stubbed its toe with a 2-1 loss to Ewing last Friday, the Little Tigers have been passing most tests, going 4-1 in their last five games to get off to an 8-2-1 start. “Since the Westfield game [a 3-0 loss on September 20], we have gotten better and better,” said Sutcliffe, whose team is slated to play at Trenton High on October 12 and at Hopewell Valley on October 16. “We have had some challenges too so I am happy about that. I like where we are, our best soccer is ahead of us. I am not satisfied but we are making adequate progress.” Beamer, for his part, believes PHS can progress into something special. “We had a slow start to the season but we have been cruising ever since,” said Beamer. “As the postseason comes around, hopefully we will be getting stronger and peak at the right time.” —Bill Alden

The kids are proving to be alright this fall for the Princeton Day School girls’ soccer team. Featuring a number of freshmen and sophomores in its rotation, PDS has produced a 9-3 start. “I am happy with where we are; eight of 11 of our starters are underclassmen and we are star ting five freshmen,” said PDS head coach Pat Trombetta. “The girls are starting to get comfortable with the system. They are developing chemistry on the field and starting to play with a little more confidence. I knew there would be ups and downs with such a young team, but overall they are starting to come together as a team.” The Panthers appear to be on the upswing, posting a 2-0 win over Montgomery on October 2 and then topping Hill School (Pa.) 4-2 last Wednesday. “The defense played well against Montgomery,” said Trombetta. “It was a good game with Hill; we were down early in the game even though we were outplaying them. They scored on the one chance that they had. We just came back from the early deficit and went on the attack throughout the game. That was a good performance overall.” The team’s contingent of freshmen helped spark the PDS attack in the win over Hill as newcomer Kelly Beal scored a goal and an assist w it h clas s mate s S oph ia Miranda adding a goal and

Jules Romano contributing an assist. “Looking overall at the freshmen, we are getting contributions from all of them,” said Trombetta. “Kelly has been doing very well for us. Sophia Miranda is an outside back who gets forward for us and she has that left foot. She scored a goal against Hill which was a big goal that put the game away. We have Britney Chia, who is a playmaker in the middle; she is doing very well for us. Jules Romano is one of the most versatile players on the team. She can play just about every single position that I put her at and she does very well.” Setting a good example for the younger players, senior defender and co-captain Becca Kuzmicz has been playing very well this fall. “Becca is having her best year of her four years,” said Trombetta. “She has been scoring on set pieces; she has been on the finishing end of corner kicks and free kicks. She has really stepped up her game, she loves playing for the team and she knows that this is probably her last year of playing organized soccer. She is putting all of her heart into it.” PDS will need to step up this week as it is slated to play at Springside-Chestnut Hill (Pa.) on October 10 before hosting Pennington on October 12 and Portledge School (N.Y.) on October 14. “This week is a good test for the team and for the young kids to see how they

can do on the big stage,” said Trombetta. “T he combined record of the three teams we are playing this week is 23-3. We have a challenging week ahead of us.” In Trombetta’s view, facing those challenges will help sharpen his young squad with postseason play around the corner. “We planned the schedule accordingly, we wanted to prepare for tournaments by playing against the best teams,” said Trombetta. “That gives us an idea of where we stand and exposes any weaknesses that we need to improve on. It is a great opportunity for the girls to get ready for tournaments.” —Bill Alden

On paper, it looked to be a mismatch when the Hun School boys’ soccer team hosted Pennington in midSeptember. Hun entered the September 19 contest winless while powerful Pennington, which started the season ranked No. 1 nationally, had just one loss. But Hun didn’t follow the script, jumping out to a 1-0 halftime lead and battling valiantly before eventually falling 2-1. In the view of Hun head coach Pat Quirk, that performance was a confidence builder for his squad despite the final result. “That was a jump start for us where we saw what kind of potential we have,” said Quirk. Building on that effort, Hun won two of its next four games, topping Gill St. Bernard’s 2-1 on September 23 and edging the George School (Pa.) 2-1 last Wednesday. “We were in a lot of close games, like the one with Pennington, and we just weren’t getting the results that we wanted, that is how soccer goes,” said Quirk. “We got a win against Gill and we beat George last week too.” Bad luck on the injur y front has kept Hun from playing its best soccer. “We haven’t had a complete team at all due to injuries,” said Quirk. “We have been banged up.” The addition of post-graduate Alex Peeters, a native of

Belgium, has given Hun some bang on the attacking end. “Alex is a nice fit, he can put the ball in the back of the net,” said Quirk of Peeters, who had a goal and an assist in the win over George. “He is not about himself, he is more about the team. He is a really great fit for the culture of our team. He is always trying to help the other guys out.” The growth of junior star Elijah Smarr into a leader has helped boost the Raiders. “Elijah has really stepped up for us; he is one of our captains,” said Quirk of Smarr, who had the gamewinning tally against Gill. “This is the first year that we picked captains as a coaching staff, and we thought he was a kid who we could have for two years that was going to build the culture of the team that we want and put guys on his shoulders. That is how he scored that goal against Gill; it was the end of the second overtime and he just took the ball and said ‘alright I am going to do this.’ He has been that way in the middle of the field.” Two veterans, junior James Muldowney and senior Dylan Smith, have helped shore up the Hun back line. “James has gotten three or four assists for us and he is playing outside back which is a position he has never played before because he is usually a midfielder,” said Quirk.

“He has done everything that we have asked him to do, playing in the outside back role. He has been a huge help for us. Dylan has come back from an injury and he has been playing in the back.” Senior Chris Pontrella, a star infielder for the Hun baseball team who was converted to goalie this fall, has made huge progress in his new spot. “We know we are going to give up shots but the kids are confident that he is going to make stops,” said Quirk of Pontrella who made 16 saves in the loss to Pennington. “He has played goal for all of a month and half now. He is a fearless kid and you can’t ask any more from him.” With Hun playing at Princeton Day School on October 12 before hosting the Hill School (Pa.) on October 14 in a Mid-Atlantic Prep League (MAPL) contest, Quirk is looking for his players to show more confidence around the net. “It is getting healthy and just continuing to work on playing consistently and finishing our opportunities,” said Quirk, whose team fell 4-0 at Blair Academy last Saturday in its MAPL opener to move to 2-7. “We create the opportunities. We just haven’t been able to finish too many of them.” —Bill Alden

With talented frontrunner Casey Nelson graduating this past spring, the Stuart Country Day School cross country team figured to take a step back. But featuring a mix of battle-tested veterans and talented newcomers, Stuart has continued to make strides. “I am very pleased with the group,” said Stuart head coach Len Klepack, whose squad has won 22 straight dual meets with its last defeat coming against Lawrenceville in 2014. “Casey was terrific last year but she didn’t have all the support. I think we are a little deeper this year. Our team has been jelling.” Junior Allie Rounds is enjoying a terrific season,

having emerged as the team’s front runner this fall. “Allie is finally coming into her own this year; she has been more consistent in training,” said Klepack. “She has been our leader each race, she has been our top girl.” A not her ju n ior, Grace Sheppard, has been coming up big as well. “Grace is a very talented athlete; she plays lacrosse and she works hard,” said Klepack of Sheppard, who has been consistent ly just behind Rounds at the front of the Stuart pack. “She has a lot of potential. I don’t think she has reached her potential yet. We will have to see how the next two and a half weeks go before the preps.”

K lepack likes what he is seeing from senior cocaptain Sonia Mohandas in her final campaign with the program. “Sonia is one of those true leaders; she cares about the team and brings everyone together,” said Klepack, noting that the team’s other senior co-captain, Allie Burgess, is currently working her way back into shape. “She makes it a cohesive group and she is a very caring person. She has a lot of talent. Last year, she was injured and is getting back into the shape she had when she was a 10th grader. I think she will get better and better every race.” Two new faces, junior Miranda Maley, a transfer f rom W W/ P- S out h, a nd

sophomore Alex Ottomanelli, have made an impact for the Tartans. “Miranda Maley has potential, she will end up as one of our top five,” said Klepack. “She will grow in the sport. She plays lacrosse also but she will run indoor track for us. Alex is a sprinter, long jumper, and triple jumper and is not afraid to train. She has made our top five. She will work very hard, we think she has a good future.” In addition, sophomore basketball star Jasm ine Hansford has been a pleasant surprise. “Jasmine is a determined young lady; she has taken it seriously,” said Klepack. “She is our sixth girl at this point and may end up as our fifth girl.” With the state Prep B championship meet slated for October 25, Klepack believes Stuart can make a serious run for a top-three finish at the competition. “I think our fourth and fifth runners have to keep improving,” said Klepack, whose team is slated to compete in the Fall Classic at Thompson Park on October 14 and run at Villa Victoria on October 17. “Allie is having her best s e as on ; G r ace a n d S o nia have to move it up a notch for us to really finish strong.” No matter how things go in the prep meet, Klepack believes his runners will see the 2017 season as a positive experience. “They bond very well, the family support is very good, and they enjoy each other,” said Klepack. “What is great about Stuart is that there are so many options; it is the type of school where you are going to find your niche. I think running is a great release and the team feels that. With all the work that they do academically, learning life lessons that you get from a sport where you have to be dedicated helps them.” —Bill Alden

Vladimir Voevodsky V ladimir Voevodsky, a t r u ly ex t raord inar y and original mathematician who made remarkable advances in algebraic geometry, and whose most recent work concer ned rew r iting the foundations of mathematics to make them suitable for computer proof verification, died at age 51 on September 30 in Princeton, New Jersey. Voevodsky was professor in the School of Mathematics at the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS), a position he held since 2002. Voevodsky was able to handle highly abstract ideas to solve concrete math ematical problems. He had a deep understanding of classical homotopy theory, where the objects considered are flexible, meaning continuous deformations are neglected, and was able to transpose its methods in the very rigid world of algebraic geometry. This en-

Born in Moscow on June 4, 1966, Voevodsky was awarded the Fields Medal in 2002 at age 36, shortly after his appointment as professor in t he S chool of Mathematics. He had spent the prior three years (1998–2001) as a long-term member. In addition to the Fields Medal, Voevodsky’s many contributions in the field of mathematics have been recognized by numerous honors and awards. He received a Sloan Fellowship from 1996–98, Clay Prize Fellowships in 1999, 2000, 2001, and many National Science Foundation grants for his work. Voevodsky also was named an honorary professor of Wuhan University (2004) and received an honorary doctorate from University of Gothenburg (2016). He was a member of the European Academy of Sciences. Voevodsky is survived by his former wife, Nadia Shalaby, their two daughters, Natalia Dalia Shalaby and Diana Yasmine Voevodsky, his aunt, Irina Voevods kaya, and extended family in Russia and around the world. A gathering to honor Voevodsky’s life and legacy took place at the Institute on October 8. A funeral service will be held in Moscow on December 27, followed by a mathematical conference in honor of his work on December 28 at the Steklov Mathematical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The Institute will convene an international conference on Voevodsky’s extraordinary and original work September 29–30, 2018.

abled him to construct new cohomology theories for algebraic varieties, which he used to prove the Milnor and Bloch-Kato conjectures, relating K-theory groups of fields and Galois cohomology. “When I first saw the basic definitions in motivic cohomology I thought, ‘This is much too naïve to possibly work,’” said Pierre Deligne, professor emeritus in the School of Mathematics. “I was wrong, and Voevodsky, star ting from those ‘naïve’ ideas, has given us extremely powerful tools.” More recently, Voevodsky had worked in type-theoretic formalizations of mathematics and automated proof verification. He was working on new foundations of mathematics based on homotopy-theoretic semantics of Martin-Löf type theories. This led him to introduce a new, very interesting “univalence” axiom. “Vladimir was a beloved colleague whose contributions to mathematics have challenged and enriched the field in deep and lasting ways,” said Robber t D ijkg raaf, I A S D ire c tor and Leon Levy Professor. “He fearlessly attacked the most abstract and difficult problems with an approach that was exceptionally innovative yet decidedly practical. Most recently, he was focused on developing tools for mathematicians working in highly advanced areas, such as higher-dimensional structures, laying out a grand vision for the future of mathematics. He was a pioneer and a catalyst and will be greatly missed by the Institute community.”

Jean Millis Gilpin and Robert Gilpin Jean Millis Gilpin, age 86, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, October 3, 2017 in Greensboro, Vt. Her husband of 62 years, Robert (Bob) Gilpin, was by her side. A teacher at heart, Jean nurtured, inspired, and advocated for others throughout her life. The stories are too numerous to tell, but include her bringing civics lessons to life by turning her elementary school classroom into the country of Gilpania, successfully fighting for the acceptance of the first Jewish member of her college sorority, and inspiring others to take chances and reach for distant goals. One of those she inspired was her husband, who still shakes his head in wonder at the woman he credits with transforming him from a kid from Enosburg Falls, Vt., with less than stellar grades, to a world-renowned scholar and Eisenhower professor of International Affairs, emeritus at Princeton University. Born in Appleton, Wisconsin, to John Schoff and Katherine Millis, Jean moved with her family in 1941 to Burlington, Vt., where her father began his tenure as president of the University of Vermont. After leaving Vermont to spend her freshman year at Lawrence College, she joined the Class of 1953 at UVM, where she pledged the sorority Kappa Alpha Theta, served on the student government association, and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and Mortar Board (the senior women’s honor society). Jean earned her first master’s degree in international politics from Western Reserve University (the second was from Trenton State in education). She subsequently worked at the United Nations prior to marrying Bob in 1955. Bob and Jean moved to Princeton in 1962, where they raised their children, Linda, Beth, and Rob. Over the next 30+ years, Jean was active in many community organizations, taught elementary school, and welcomed a stream of her children’s friends and Princeton University students into their home. Jean Gilpin’s interests and accomplishments were many, and included foreign languages (particularly Japanese), classical music, innovative teaching methodologies, playing the piano, and cold water swimming. She could be found on Sunday afternoons, sandwiched between morning services at Trinity Episcopal church and an afternoon walk at Herrontown Woods or Marquand Park, deep in discus-

sion with Bob about the Sunday Times’ reporting of the week’s news. Jean was a champion debater of the State of Vermont, so Bob wisely resigned himself to losing any and all arguments about current affairs, or any other topic for that matter. Bob’s sabbaticals in London and Paris were highlights of their family life, along with summer trips to visit grandparents on Cape Cod, Lake Champlain, and Northfield, Vt. After Bob’s retirement, he and Jean moved to their home in Greensboro, Vt, and used it as a home base while traveling the world. A Girl Scout leader, Jean was the epitome of the lyrics known by Girl Scouts everywhere: “Make new friends but keep the old.” Bonds formed in childhood, during her college years, and while living in Princeton and Greensboro, were nurtured throughout her life and remained vitally important to her. But in the end, after the world travels, the parenting, the joys, and the struggles, it all comes back to Bob and Jean. Jean was Bob’s partner, editor, and co-author of eight books that have been published in dozens of countries and a multitude of languages, and several of which are considered seminal works. Perhaps the best vignette of their lives together can be found in a profile from the Vermont Quarterly: “The Gilpins have a close, if occasionally cantankerous relationship, as happens when a couple lives and works together so closely. At one point when he asks if she’s going to talk or let him talk, she laughs merrily and says, “Oh, I’m going to interrupt you, of course. The way I always have.” And they move on, telling their stories, about the long-ago debates Bob would spark among Harvard intellectuals when he introduced the concept of an intersection between politics and economics … about the progressive teaching ideas Jean put into practice … about hearing a beautiful voice singing from the balcony across the street from their apartment in Paris and looking over to see Joan Baez … about how the word around the UVM campus in the ’50s, according to Jean, was that Bob was a radical. Whether this was part of the appeal she doesn’t say ….” Jean is survived by her husband Robert G. Gilpin, Jr., children Linda Gilpin and Beth Gilpin (both of Wa-

terbury, Vt.) and Robert M. Gilpin of Newton, Mass., and her sister Alice Grover Vest. She will be missed by grandchildren Jamie Benson, Hazen and Riley Powell, Everett, Jeremy, and Toby Gilpin, and Chase and Chelsea Benson (now Laukaitis), all of whom she taught, whether to swim, to read, or the proper usage of the phrase “lie down” vs. “lay down.” Bob, Linda, Beth, and Rob wish to express their deep and heartfelt appreciation to Brenna Gonyo, whose skill, compassion, and dedication have been a blessing over the past four years. Services will be held in Vermont and Princeton; details to be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the University of Vermont or Greensboro Nursing Home in Greensboro, Vt., whose staff provided Jean with comfort and care in her final months. Assisting the family is the Perkins-Parker Funeral Home and Cremation Service in Waterbury, Vt. Condolences can be sent to Beth Gilpin, 480 Black Bear Hollow, Waterbur y, VT, or online at ———

Jane Merchant Hanna Jane Merchant Hanna, 82, of Old Chatham, New York, died Tuesday, September 12, 2017 at home surrounded by her family. She spent her last years in Princeton, New Jersey to be closer to family. She was born in Minneapolis, Minn. to the late Ralph Merchant and Louise (Gorham) Merchant, where she lived until attending Smith College, graduating in 1957. Although she remained on the East Coast for the rest of her life, she always attributed her spirit (which was formidable), determination (equally formidable), and down-to-earth attitudes to her Midwestern heritage. Jane had t wo careers : teaching and landscape design. She began her teaching career at the Buckingham School in Cambridge, Mas s. a nd as a m id d le school math teacher at Albany Academy for Girls after the family moved to Albany N.Y. She retired in 1980, to fulfill her lifelong passion for gardens and gifted eye for design, starting Wendover Farm Nursery. She was also involved in Tannery Pond Concerts, an organization committed to bringing world class chamber music to the Berkshires at an affordable price. She met her husband, John Hanna, Jr. in Cambridge, Mass. Married in 1958, they lived in Cambr idge until 1969 when they moved briefly to Albany before moving to their beloved Wendover Farm in Old Chatham, N.Y. Over 47 years together on the farm, they planted beautiful and abundant gardens, filled the bar ns w ith animals, and created a welcoming gathering spot for friends, family, and animals. Jane always loved animals, and collected an impressive array over the years, including a fair number of strays that wandered into the yard and never left. Nothing gave Jane more pleasure than to share Wendover with family and friends. Neighbors and guests were always welcome to gather by the pond for a cookout next to the fire-

bowl. Over the years, Jane and John welcomed many of their friends’ children to spend portions of their summers at Wendover, and these visitors became cherished friends in their own rights. In the later years, having her grandchildren gather together and enjoy the farm provided huge joy, and all nine grandchildren consider time on the farm with Granna some of their most cherished memories. She is survived her husband of 58 years, John Hanna, Jr, three children: Lili Hanna Morss and her husband Steve of Concord, Mass.: Kate Hanna Morgan of Princeton; Josh Merchant Hanna and his wife Kim of Waukesha, Wisc.; and nine grandchildren: Alexandra, Abigail and Caroline Morss: Sarah, Jasper, Lucy and Annie Morgan: and Will and Genevieve Hanna; and a brother Louis Merchant and his wife Joyce of Wayzata, Minn. Arrangements are under the direction of the MatherHodge Funeral Home, Princeton. ———

K. Philip Dresdner K. Philip Dresdner (Phil) died Saturday October 7, 2017. Phil was born April 13, 1927 in Trenton, New Jersey where he attended public schools until attending The Lawrenceville School where he graduated in the class of 1945. Phil served in the U.S. Merchant Marines, USNR, for a year and then received a BA from Yale in 1950. He married Katherine V. Winans (Kay) in June 1950. Phil was recruited while at Yale to join the CIA and assigned to an executive position in Radio Free Europe’s Munich Station in Germany. After leaving Munich Station, Phil continued to work for the CIA in New York at Radio Free Europe and then worked in a number of brokerage firms on Wall Street before opening his own company, Dresdner and Co. in Montclair, N.J. in 1971. While living in Montclair he served as trustee, treasurer, and president of the Montclair Art Museum, as president of the Yale Club of Montclair, and began serving in 1975 as a trustee of the Lawrenceville School. Phil and Kay moved to Lawrence Township in 1980. His love for and devotion to The Lawrenceville School is reflected in his 20 years of active service on the Board and continued participation as a trustee emeritus. He served as board vice president, as executive committee chairman and treasurer of finance, managing the school’s endowment and saving the school millions of dollars in management fees. He also served as chair of the property committee and received Lawrenceville School’s Distinguished Alumnus Award. Phil had a major impact on the life of the school by actively supporting the Lawrenceville School Board’s move from an all-male school to coeducation which was finally approved in 1985. He supported gender equality in athletics with the creation in 1988 of the Dresdner Cup given annually in recognition of the highest athletic achievement of a girl’s Crescent House to correspond to the Foresman Cup awarded annually to a boy’s Circle House for highest athletic achievement at the school. Phil was also instrumental

in hiring the school’s first female headmaster in 2003. Phil had a lifelong love of music. As a child he studied the violin with Josef Chudnofsky, first chair violinist of the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra and played the violin in the Lawrenceville School orchestra and music groups at Yale. He supported the Lawrenceville School music department, donated his Heberlein violin to the school for students to play, and funded the building of Dresdner Hall, a new recital hall in the Clark Music Center. Phil also served on the Board of the Princeton University Art Museum and was president and treasurer of the Morven Museum Board. In 1990 Phil singlehandedly saved the Morven property from becoming a New Jersey State Police Barracks. Phil served on many Boards including the Montclair Savings Bank, the Montclair Mountainside Hospital, the Montclair YMCA, First Jersey National Bank and Trust, NJ Seeds, and the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation. Phil was a member and chairman of District Committee No. 9 of the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD), and a trustee of the Albert Penick Foundation, where he grew an initial investment of $300,000 to more than $5 million over time, making gifts annually over 40 years. Fishing was another lifelong passion. Phil began fishing as a 4-year-old child on Marshall’s Creek and on the Delaware River in Shawnee, Pennsylvania. He later learned to fly fish and spent 30 years devoting himself to the art of fly casting, travelling to fish in Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Alaska, Canada, Iceland, Maine, and the Bahamas. He travelled for many years to Patagonia fishing the Alumine, Malleo, and Corcovado Rivers and also to fish the Traful, Caleufu, Collon Cura, and the Chimehuin Rivers south of Buenos Aires. In July 1995 Phil had a spectacular record day fishing on the Restigouche River in New Brunswick, Canada where he caught and released a 48 pound salmon and then a 60 pound salmon. Catching these two salmon were an “incredible angling feat” as reported in the Bangor Daily News on July 15, 1995. Phil is survived by his four children, Katherine V. Dresdner of Hopewell, N.J.; Karl P. Dresdner of Newtown, Pa.; Robert P. Dresdner of Vienna, Va.; and William W. Dresdner of Monticello, Va.; and also survived by his four grandchildren, Kate, Teddy, Maura, and Brendan. He is predeceased by his wife Katherine Winans Dresdner; his parents, Karl George Dresdner and Miriam Virginia Neumann; and his sister Hedl D. Roulette. The burial will be at the L aw rencev ille Cemeter y on Route 206 near Carter

Road, Lawrence, N.J. at 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 14 to which Phil’s friends are welcome, followed by a Memorial Service at 11 a.m. at The Edith Memorial Chapel at The Lawrenceville School. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to SAVE-A Friend to Homeless Animals, 1010 Route 601, Skillman, NJ 08558. Arrangements are through the Mather Hodge Funeral Home, Princeton, N.J. ———

READY FOR FALL: 5 TIPS FOR YOUR HOME'S INTERIOR Winter's around the corner, and now's the time to make sure your home is ready. Here's what to do inside: • Have your furnace serviced: A licensed heating contractor will ensure your heating system is working efficiently and safely. Help distribute that heat by changing the direction of your ceiling fans so they push warm air down. • Invest in insulation: Putting insulation in your walls and ceiling is a job for a contractor, but adding some insulation behind your outlets is simple, and it’s another good way to keep heating costs low. • Check your basement windows: Even if your basement isn’t finished, a loose or cracked pane or missing gasket or caulk can let in a lot of air. Use spray foam insulation to seal around pipe entries. • Maintain your fireplace or woodstove: Have your chimney professionally cleaned to improve the draft and prevent fires, and replace worn gaskets on stove doors. • Check your pipes: If you have any water pipes in unheated spaces like a basement or crawlspace, adding pipe insulation prevents freezing and also helps keep your hot water hot by the time it reaches your tap. Next week, we'll look at five tips for your home's exterior.

We list, We sell, We manage. If you have a house to sell or rent we are ready to service you! Call us for any of your real estate needs and check out our website at: See our display ads for our available houses for sale.
