In an ongoing battle against the infestation of a tree-killing insect known as the emerald ash borer (EAB), town officials will be voting next week to grant Princeton property owners the right to cut down ash trees without paying the usual $40 permit fee or replacing trees that are removed. Municipal arborist Lorraine Konopka pointed out that the town wanted to alleviate the burden on residents, particularly those with numerous ash trees on their property, though they will still be required to notify her when removing ash trees of eight inches or more in diameter. “We’d like to know when that work is happening,” she said, “in case neighbors get upset or we need to help keep everything running smoothly.” In removing and/or treating numerous ash trees on their property, “some people will be upset and will be facing a large bill,” Ms. Konopka said. The Town will also be urging, but not requiring, residents to replace at least 10 percent of the trees they take down. “We didn’t want to insist that replacement trees go in,” she said, but, in the long term, she emphasized, “We’d like to try to avoid losing the tree canopy cover for the town.” The next step, according to Council member Bernie Miller, is to pass this amendment to the Shade Tree Ordinance “and then for the Shade Tree Commission (STC) and our professional staff to recommend an action plan to Council for the ash trees in the municipal right of way and along the paths in our parks.” After the plan is adopted by Council, funds for removal and treatment must be approved in the budget for 2017 and succeeding years. Since its arrival in the United States in Michigan in 2002, the EAB, a non-native insect pest, has killed hundreds of millions of ash trees in at least 25 states. In the past year it has been found in Princeton and surrounding communities “The emerald ash borer will kill 99 percent of all untreated ash trees within the next few years,” Ms. Konopka said. Though removal may be the necessary course of action in many cases, Ms. Konopka noted that some ash trees could be saved by periodic use of pesticide injections. “I hope people will consider Continued on Page 4

University Paying $18.2 Million in Tax Settlement
Just a few days before it was headed to trial, a case in which 27 Princeton residents were suing Princeton University over property tax exemptions was settled last Friday. The school will pay out $18.2 million over the next six years to help lower-income residents of the town pay their property tax bills. The piaintiffs had claimed the school was profiting from research and development in certain campus buildings and should therefore be taxed. The University maintained that educational purposes were the focus. The suit has been dropped. “When we first conceived of the lawsuit in 2011, our focus was on how to reduce the tax burden on these people in need,” said attorney Bruce Afran, who represented the plaintiffs on four lawsuits and worked with the University on the agreement. “These are people who have struggled to keep up with their taxes but can’t take care of their homes. This fund will help them in those directions.” Under the agreement, the school will
contribute $2 million this year and $1.6 million a year for the next five years to a fund that will distribute annual payments to Princeton homeowners who are beneficiaries of the New Jersey Homestead Property Tax Credit Act. The 2017 distribution will establish a maximum amount for each household. Anything left over will go to 101:Inc., a non-profit organization that provides need-based scholarships
The Princeton Public Schools Student Services team laid out their plans for the coming year for a group of about 50 in the John Witherspoon School Academic Conference Center (ACC) on Monday night in a forum sponsored by the Special Education PTO. In setting the tone for the evening, special ed PTO co-chair Joan Spindel emphasized the value of communication, “learning from each other’s stories” and providing feedback to”help shape the
agenda of the Student Services team.” Student Services Director Micki Crisafulli commented on the results of last spring’s PTO-initiated focus groups, noting as areas of some concern: progress reports; IEP (Individual Education Plan) meetings; transitioning, from elementary to middle school (5th to 6th) and from middle to high school (8th to 9th); and communication. Among the priorities for the coming Continued on Page 8

trying to save trees if they qualify for injection,” she said. Ash trees in good health can be treated effectively before they become infested, but for trees that are in poor health the injection will not be effective and is not recommended, according to Ms. Konopka. It may be best to remove those trees before they die and pose a hazard. The costs are significant, for either removal or treatment, with estimates ranging from $425 to $1000 for removal of each tree, $540 to $1300 for treatments for each tree over ten years, and $400 to replace each ash tree with a different species. With potential damage from building construction, along with the bacterial leaf scorch attacking oak trees and the EAB invasion, Ms. Konopka observed that tree preservation in Princeton is “a tall order.” The Council, the Shade Tree Commission and the town arborist are working together with residents to retain trees as much as possible, while being realistic about the ones that have to come down. “We’re kind of under attack,” Ms. Konopka added, “but we’re paying attention to the problems and we’re doing the best we can.” The Princeton STC website (www.princetonshadetree.org) provides further information about identifying ash trees, monitoring them for the EAB, assessing damage, deciding on treatment options and contacting certified tree experts in Mercer County. —Donald Gilpin

an outsider because of race and ethnicity. The two met and became friends as Princeton High School sophomores. “We had a lot of memories of encountering silence and apathy,” Winona said. “It got us thinking about race and why it is a taboo topic.”
Of the Town It was the 2014 case of Eric Garner, a black man who died after being put in a chokehold by a white police officer arresting him, that sparked them to take action. “In discussions we had in class about this, we sensed this silence about race among students and teachers,” said Priya. “We were shocked. We realized that people found it uncomfortable to talk about race.” In October of their sophomore year, the girls founded CHOOSE. Their aim was to gather personal stories in order to empower dialogue about race and ethnicity. “We realized that everyone had these powerful stories we felt should be shared, so we created a platform,” Priya said. “A lot of people had told us they felt like their story and their culture were a burden.” They were asked to speak at a faculty meeting. “We talked about the general need to address race, and shared some stories with them,” said Priya. “The next day, a lot of teachers came up to us and said they wanted to help, but didn’t know how because they always worried about offending students or saying something wrong.” Winona and Priya put together a team of students, mostly from their school, to become a part of CHOOSE and start interviewing people in Princeton about their personal stories. Those stories, complete with photos, went into a 50-page handbook which was tested with fifth grade teachers in the town’s public schools. “It was successful, so we saw that it worked,” said Winona. “That led to the second edition, which is bigger and more complex.” The second Classroom Index is for teachers of kindergarten through twelfth
grade. With more than 150 stories in different formats for eight core class subjects, it was partially funded by the Princeton University Department of African American Studies and the Princeton Education Foundation. The book has a foreword by Princeton University Professor Ruha Benjamin and Princeton Public Schools Superintendent Steve Cochrane. It is filled with stories, illustrations, cartoons, graphics, and recommended reading for different age groups. Teachers can choose stories from “the tags list” at the front, which divides short

The index is “a big collection of voices that teachers can use to initiate dialogue,” said Winona. “We’re getting a lot of good feedback and we’re thinking about the third edition. Our dream is for the book to be in the hands of educators nationwide.” The third edition will focus not just on racism, but on gender as well.

THE LGBT JOURNEY: Princeton Public Library holds a screening Tuesday, October 25 at 7 p.m. of “The Pursuit: 50 Years in the Fight for LGBT Rights.” The documentary, produced through a collaboration between WHYY and others, explores the complexities of contemporary LGBT life and provides a look at the past half-century of the fight for LGBT rights. Included are recollections of local activists from the 1960s when “gays” were “hidden in plain sight,” vulnerable to arrest, subjected to psychiatric treatment, fired from jobs, and publicly shamed. Judy Jarvis, director of Princeton University’s LGBT center, will lead a discussion following the screening in the library’s Community Room. The library is at 65 Witherspoon Street. www.princeton library.org.

year, Ms. Crisafulli mentioned the timeliness and clarity of progress reports; improved preparation for IEP meetings; more timely and consistent communication between teachers and parents, and, especially at the high school level, between students and their teachers and case managers. Ms. Crisafulli also commented on the importance of developing further conversations between special ed and mainstream teachers. Ms. Crisafulli stated that communication with parents of students in the autism program at Riverside would receive particular attention, and she praised new Riverside principal Valerie Ulrich, who began her career as a special education teacher,
for her understanding of the particular needs and goals of the program. In the second part of the evening session, attended by a mix of special education teachers, administrators and parents of special ed students, Eric Csolak, elementary special ed supervisor, and Kristin Graham, secondary special ed supervisor, highlighted the importance of differentiation (looking at and working with students individually) and inclusion. “We want our students to be included and to have whatever experiences other students are having,” said Ms. Graham, “whether it’s in the regular classroom, the art studio, the athletic fields or in after-school activities. “ Ms. Graham also emphasized the impor tance of teamwork, for students and
teachers and also with content area supervisors, to enhance the learning process for special education students. “How can we improve partnerships? How can we improve collaboration?” she asked. Commenting on the School to Work Program, Ms. Graham reported that the number of students involved has increased, as has the number of job sites available to them. The goal, she explained, is for them to acquire the necessary skills, then go out to work in the community — YMCA, restaurants, pharmacies, libraries and elsewhere.

Tax Settlement continued from page one
voluntary contribution to the town of $3,480,000 in 2021 and 2022, the same amount it is scheduled to give in 2020, which is the final year of its current agreement with the municipality. “This is probably the most successful outcome of this nature to any tax exemption case in the country,” said Mr. Afran. He added that if the case had gone to trial, the plaintiffs likely would have won a judgement of $8 million paid by the University. But that would only have yielded about $400 in benefits for each household. ‘We felt most people in Princeton aren’t in need of that money. It would be giving ‘latte money’ out to people. It didn’t seem, in this community, to be a worthy way to go.” The settlement grants an average payment of about $2,000 a year for six years to those eligible. “We don’t want Princeton to be just the preser ve of the well off,” Mr. Afran said. “We want economic diversity and we designed the settlement to achieve that. Hopefully, other people in the community will want to find a way to expand this fund and add to it. We want to further this aid.” In a prepared statement, University President Christopher L. Eisgruber said, “Princeton University cares deeply about preserving the diversity of the Princeton community, and the contributions we have agreed to make will help to achieve that. “We have a long history of contributing to the well-being of our community, not only through our annual unrestricted contributions and targeted contributions for affordable housing, the schools and the library, and community services of various kinds, but in the educational, cultural and other opportunities we provide to members of the community.” Mr. Eisgruber added, “We had every confidence that the courts ultimately would have affirmed the University’s continuing eligibility for property tax exemption on buildings and facilities that support its educational, research and service missions, but we concluded that the contributions we will make under the settlement agreement are a better expenditure of funds than continuing to incur the considerable costs of litigation.” Negotiations with the University were friendly and went well, Mr. Afran said. But if the school opts not to continue the arrangement once the six years are up, the lawsuits will be brought again. “Hopefully, we won’t have to,” he said. “Hopefully, it’s the beginning of a new era.” —Anne Levin
Actors Portray Past Figures in “Ghosts at the Trent House”
On Saturday, October 22 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., a living exhibit will be on display inside the historic Trent House Museum. Actors will inhabit the museum rooms as the people who have died at the Trent House. Visitors can tour the museum and speak to the actors, including one playing William Trent himself, to learn about their lives and deaths
at the Trent House. Admission is $5 and pizza and refreshments are included. Listed in both the State and National Registers of Historic Places and designated a National Historic Landmark, the meticulously restored 1719 William Trent House and historic kitchen garden provide a glimpse into pre-revolutionary life in America and its interpretation of William Trent’s lifestyle and diverse household.

Daniel J. Siegel Lectures At Library Book-Signing
Neuropsychiatrist and author Daniel J. Siegel talks about and signs copies of his latest book, Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human, Sunday, October 30, at 4 p.m. at Princeton Public Library. In the book, Mr. Siegel uses his characteristic sensitivity and interdisciplinary background to offer a definition of the mind that illuminates the how, what, when, where, and even why of who we are, of what the mind is, and what the mind’s self has the potential to become. The book explores consciousness, subjective experience, and information processing, and uncovers the mind’s self-organizational properties that emerge from both the body and the relationships we have with one another, and with the world around us. The author is a graduate of Harvard Medical School and completed his postgraduate medical education at UCLA with training in pediatrics and child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry. He is currently a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine. Mr. Siegel is the author of The Developing Mind: How Relationships and the Brain Interact to Shape Who We Are, which The Canadian Child Psychiatr y Rev iew said “may be the harbinger of a fresh archetype for child psychiatry as it enters the next millennium.” His four parenting books include, Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain; The WholeBrain Child: 12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child’s Developing Mind, and No-Drama Discipline: The Whole-Brain Way to Calm the Chaos and Nurture Your Child’s Developing Mind, (both with Tina Payne Bryson, PhD); and Parenting from the Inside Out: How a Deeper Self-Understanding Can Help You Raise Children Who Thrive ( w it h Mar y Hartzell, MEd). This is the third annual lect ure endowed by t he family of Dr. Kenneth Gould celebrating significant contributions to the fields of child development and psychology. The library is at 65 Witherspoon Street. Visit princetonlibrary.org or call (609) 924-9529 for information.
few years ago, when Lisa Eckstrom was an English teacher and chair of the English Department at Stuart Country Day School, she received the following advice: “Every day think of all the people you can help.” That advice has guided her career and her work. She is now assistant head of Princeton Charter School ( PCS ), directing the fifth through eighth grades, while continuing to teach a fifth grade English class. “That’s definitely advice that has stayed with me,” she said. “You can make such a difference in somebody’s life by being reasonable and compassionate and making the rules work for the students. How can you help the situation? How can you make it better? At the end of the day, that’s what you think about.” Sister Frances de la Chapelle, long-time Head of Stuart and the purveyor of the well remembered advice, described Ms. Eckstrom as “a gift to Stuart.” Commenting on the extraordinary respect and admiration that students, administrators, faculty, and parents had for her, Sister de la Chapelle noted, ”As a faculty member, she loved her students and the subject which she taught. She was creative, very demanding, and always wanted her students to learn as much as they could. She wanted the best for them and they responded.” Sister de la Chapelle was
equally admir ing of Ms. Eckstrom’s success as an administrator, pointing out that “She was clear in her expectations and her goals. People were delighted to work with her. She energized them. She was always ready to take on more responsibility and gave of herself 100 percent.” And Ms. Eckstrom, now in her fourth year at PCS, seems to have held onto all those qualities. “Lisa is a great educator, who brings a wealth of knowledge of school institutions, trends in education, understanding of students, and skill in communicating with parents,” according to Head of School Larry Patton, who went on to praise her “empathy, intelligence, and experience as an educator.” He also mentioned her strong understanding of the community, as a resident of Princeton since 1993, with two children (Grace Rosen, 24, and Simon Rosen, 17, currently a senior at PHS) who have gone through the Princeton Public Schools — “my 19th year as a PPS parent” — from Riverside to John Witherspoon to Princeton High School (PHS). Dedicated Teacher Ms. Eckstrom’s father was an aeronautical engineer with NASA, but her mother and grandmother were both teachers — “I know how fulfilling they found it,” and, as an undergraduate at St. John’s College in Annapolis she knew that she wanted to be a teacher.
She also knew that she wou ld e ve nt u a l ly go to graduate school. “I knew I always wanted to be intellectually engaged. I had always been a reader, interested in academics, and I wanted to be around people who were talking about ideas,” she recalled. Her first job — “the only job I got” — after graduating from college with a concentration in philosophy and the history of mathematics, was at a parochial school where she taught history and English to classes of 35 seventh and eight graders. She was adm it ted t he following year to graduate school in comparative literature at Princeton University, with a concentration in French and English literature. Ms. Eckstrom, who worked as a preceptor for a variety of courses, recalled, “I loved the teaching part of grad school.” She earned her Masters at Princeton and also met her future husband, Gideon Rosen, now the Stuart Professor of Philosophy at Princeton. After a short stint in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where Mr. Rosen had his first job and their daughter was born, they returned to Princeton, and Ms. Eckstrom started as a lecturer at the University. She worked there part-time from 1991 until her son started kindergarten and she got a job — at first parttime, then later full-time — at Stuart as English Teacher in the upper school. “I wanted to be in a com-

munity,” she said. “In my position at Princeton University it was hard to develop deep relationships with people, but I loved the Stuart community — great bosses, great students, great parents.” Transitions She became English department chair at Stuart in 2008, though she continued to teach classes, and she gradually decided she “wanted to do something more administrative.” In reflecting on her decision to leave Stuart in 2011 and take a job as Head of School at the American Boychoir School, Ms. Eckstrom commented, “Being in the Stuart community for a long time makes you think about what kind of leadership you want to pursue. That’s part of the DNA at Stuart. I thought I wanted to do something more administrative.” Two years later, with the Boychoir School facing financial dif f icu lt ies, Ms. Eckstrom “wanted to seek something a little more stable,” and she happily moved to the PCS to direct grades 5-8. “It was certainly not part of a long-term plan, but a big opportunity for me with a lot of positives,“ she said. “It’s terrific. I tell my friends you have to put your name in for PCS.” Still torn between the positive attributes of private and public schools, Ms. Eckstrom appreciates the fact that PCS, though part of the public school system, is smaller in size and more independent than most public schools. There are about 48 students in each of the grades five through eight at PCS.
“The thing that kids need most,’ she said, “is the community. Keeping things small is going to be like whatever the opposite of fast food is — the slow food movement. There’s going to be a small school movement. I appreciate that when the parents come in here, I know who they are. I’m not dealing with people as strangers. It’s important to have a community where everyone knows each other’s name. Everyone feels comfortable knowing that you’re not just a cog in the wheel. That makes a huge difference.” Ms. Eckstrom expressed her appreciation that PCS and other public schools “educate a wider variety of students than a traditional private school would.” She mentioned also that public school can more easily be an integral part of the community rather than a school with students from many different towns. “One of the strengths of public school is that everyone lives in the same town. When I go to McCaffrey’s,” she said, “I see my students. When I go to Small World I see parents of my students, and as a teacher or administrator you either hate or love that, and I love it. That’s a big plus.” Teaching, Administrating Having always taught classes along with performing her administrative responsibilities, Ms. Eckstrom emphasized the importance of operating in both worlds. “You have to do both all the time to understand what the teachers are going through. Teaching and administrating are very different jobs in many respects.” On the day I talked with
her in her office, she had just been involved in sorting out an elaborate schedule of school bus drills and negotiating with the fifth grade boys to persuade them to let the fifth grade girls play basketball with them. “I spend a lot of time trying to bring reason to middle schoolers,” Ms. Eckstrom admitted. “A lot of my days I’m not involved with intellectual issues, but I am always engaged with people — parents, students, and teachers. I find that meaningful. If you do your job right you can really help people.” Teaching a class of fifth grade English this year, she described her students as “extremely enthusiastic and really, really curious. They’re an energetic bunch. Teaching keeps you centered on what schools are all about.” Along with her love of teaching Ms. Eckstrom emphasized the vital importance of good administration. “A lot rests on people in administrative positions to make sure the focus is on the people, on kids, on character — not just on the rules. The English call it pastoral care. (It doesn’t have to be religious.) I think there’s a lot of pastoral care at the administrative level, and it’s basic. It changes the tone of the school.” As teacher, administrator and leader of grades 5-8 at PCS, Ms. Eckstrom may have come a long way, but she has never departed from her beliefs in community, caring and helping as many people as she can. —Donald Gilpin

Mailbox Send Hunger Packing’s Fill the Bowls “Friendraiser” Achieves Funds, Awareness
To the Editor: Send Hunger Packing Princeton (SHUPP) 4th annual “friendraiser” held last month was called “Fill the Bowls,” inspired by a national initiative known as Empty Bowls. Our event guests received a beautiful, handmade ceramic bowl, created by artist Adam Welch. Our guests received their bowls empty, to symbolize the problem of food insecurity faced by so many of our neighbors in Princeton, and then filled their bowls with delicious food, generously donated by local restaurants including Elements, Witherspoon Grill, Aurelio’s, Metro North, Olives, Princeton Soup and Sandwich, Momo Bakery, and Lilipies. Celebrity Chef Brian Duffy of Philadelphia, renowned for his role in TV’s Bar Rescue, gave a cooking demonstration. Once again, this friendraiser was a success, both in raising funds and awareness. Thank you to our friends and supporters. Together, we support food-insecure families in our town. Together, we’ve been able to provide over 63,000 supplemental weekend meals to children in our Princeton schools during the past three years. Together we ARE making a difference. And because of your support, we’re now able to expand our mission, boost our reach to more children, and enhance the quality and quantities of food we provide.

Republican Mayoral Candidate Peter Marks Wants Policy Choices Based On What Works
To the Editor: Princetonians tend to conflate intellect, wisdom, and academic accomplishment. We prize advanced degrees from elite institutions, imputing to their holders an understanding that is much broader than their particular fields of study. We flatter ourselves that academically certified intellect trumps experience, and that utopia is within our grasp if only we would have the wit to accept rule by our certifiably brainy betters. Not surprisingly, our infatuation with academic accomplishment causes our political discourse to be dominated by people who are shielded from the adverse effects of the policies they advocate. Many of our more influential residents hold tenured positions with lifetime job security and few specific work requirements. Their salaries are generous, and increase annually — usually at a rate in excess of inflation. Their housing costs are frequently subsidized. Their healthcare is a non-issue, as is their retirement. As a result, they can afford to view rising costs and property taxes as matters of indifference. Whether from conceit or ignorance, they tend also to view business, employers, the less well credentialed, and the self-reliant with suspicion. So we agitate for increased wages, mandatory overtime, paid leave, employer funded healthcare, and lavish pensions — and then express dismay when we are unable to attract or sustain the small local shopkeepers we say we prefer. We rail against discrimination — but heap scorn on unfashionable ideas, coddle chosen ethnic groups, darken sacrificial neighborhoods with towering apartment blocks, and subsidize new arrivals with taxes levied on existing residents. We demonstrate that we are a “welcoming community” by adding hundreds of new apartment units — and then profess surprise when we learn that we must build and pay for new schools to accommodate the burgeoning population of students. We complain about rising taxes, but demand gold plated facilities and canvass aggressively for the school and county officials whose unrestrained budgets necessitate ever higher taxes. in short, our policy prescriptions are incoherent. We claim to be guided by “sustainability,” “diversity,” and “affordability,” but we’re heedless of the unsustainable burden that population growth places on our community, we’re selective in the groups and viewpoints we recognize as deserving of our favor, and we’re wholly unsympathetic to

the plight of the resident homeowners who pay our bills. One party rule has left us in thrall to an ideology. We have serious problems, problems that will not be solved with fashion statements. Nor will they be solved by tinkering around the edges. if we are to lighten the burden on our existing residents and to preserve our distinctive small town character, we must mitigate the worst of our state mandates, tighten our zoning, stabilize our population, and moderate our spending. We have strayed far from the sustainably affordable and diverse community in which i was raised. The path back will be illuminated by people whose views are formed by experience, whose policy choices are based upon what works, and whose lodestones are: small, simple, and stable.

Ninth Grader Writes Supporting Dad, Greg Stankiewicz, for Seat on Board
To the Editor: Though my opinion on this matter may not be the most objective, i am writing to state why i believe Greg Stankiewicz, my dad, would be an incredible addition to the Princeton Board of Education. The first reason is that my dad will work extremely hard. One of his most amazing traits is how he throws himself heart and soul into working on what truly matters to him. As i have watched him research and discuss the important topics related to our schools, i have seen that passion in his eyes. i know he will devote himself with all of his huge heart to our schools because he understands how valuable public education is and what an amazing school system we have. Another reason is that my dad will be a representative that is truly “of the people.” He values all opinions. He believes in bringing people together and finding a path that benefits everyone, which means that he will always be available to listen to everyone. This is part of why i love him so much. i believe that Greg Stankiewicz is an extremely strong candidate because of his background knowledge and warm personality. i strongly recommend voting for him on November 8. RAiSA RUBiN-STANKiEWiCz 9th Grade, Princeton High School, Jefferson Road
Mayor Lempert’s Gracious, Skilled Leadership Has Been Crucial to Consolidation’s Success
To the Editor: Princeton has been very fortunate to have Liz Lempert as the mayor leading the former Borough and Township through consolidation. i enthusiastically endorse Liz’s bid for reelection and urge Princeton’s citizens to vote for Liz on November 8. With Mayor Lempert’s leadership, along with the hard work of the Princeton Council, municipal staff and many citizen volunteers, we surpassed the savings originally estimated to result from consolidation. Gross savings in year three (2015) were $3.8 million and were $2.8 million after municipal service expansions such as Access Princeton and Corner House staff. We should be proud of this successful team effort and comforted in knowing that our elected officials continue to keep the taxpayer’s wallet foremost in their minds. Mayor Lempert’s gracious and skilled leadership has been crucial in delivering consolidation’s success. Princeton’s citizens and Council are unabashedly passionate in their opinions on matters both large and small when it comes to our town. Liz’s calm demeanor, fairness, dedication, and perseverance served us well as we navigated consolidation’s many issues and decisions.
in addition to the internal machinations of consolidating two governments, our mayor has also led in making Princeton a better community. Liz has focused on social and planning and neighborhood issues, all of which she cares about deeply. The list of accomplishments and opportunities for future improvements is long. i believe that Liz has the vision, energy, and talent to continue to lead us to realize these opportunities. Our town will continue to benefit greatly from having Liz as our mayor. SCOTT SiLLARS Patton Avenue
Thankful That Princeton Council Is Poised to Pass Ordinance Reinstating Civil Rights Commission
To the Editor: i am encouraged to learn that Princeton Council is poised to pass an ordinance to reinstate the town’s Civil Rights Commission (CRC), which has been dormant for nearly 20 years. We should all thank Mayor Lempert and Council for giving the new ordinance such a thorough review. We live in a dangerous time when no municipality dare consider itself exempt from concerns about civil rights (whether legal, cultural, or ethical). Princeton, especially with its progressive stands on so many issues, should be a model for the state and the nation in this matter also. Civil rights belong to all of us; no person should be denied adequate access to those rights. Princeton must put in place adequate structures and procedures for resolving civil rights conflicts: touchy-feely community “education” and “outreach” do not alone suffice. Matters of civil rights should not be left as simply one of many responsibilities assumed by our Human Services Department. What we need is an independent Civil Rights Commission, whose sole responsibility is to attend to matters of civil rights in a comprehensive manner. That CRC should manage conflict resolution through structured mediation, however informal, and with an adequate staff of Princeton volunteer citizens. Under current structures, it is only the (solo) executive director of the Human Services Department who deals with matters of civil rights. That person is de facto an employee of the town. To be effective, the CRC must be perceived as independent by residents, as well as visitors. in addition, the executive director of Human Services may simply be overworked. Citizens or visitors should be able to register civil rights complaints with either the revived CRC or the HS Department, as they choose, according to their needs and temperaments. Establishing this second, independent point for “intake” of civil rights complaints will give to individuals and the town alike a profile of impartiality. “intake forms” should be identical for both the CRC and the HS Department. if possible, the information should be shared with the administrator. Princeton has become a leader as an age-friendly and a bike-friendly community. it is a state leader in matters of sustainability. None of us can afford to be less than proud of our community and governance for our outspoken transparency and vigilance in matters of civil rights. DANiEL A. HARRiS Dodds Lane, Princeton
Peter Marks Would Be an Independent Common-Sense, Fiscally Prudent Mayor
To the Editor: The upcoming mayoralty election presents a real opportunity for the community to shape its future, not accept it. With Peter Marks, we will have an independent, commonsense, fiscally prudent mayor who will be an advocate for Princeton. Anyone who saw the recent mayoralty debate will appreciate the difference between the two candidates. Mr. Marks, a lifelong Princeton resident, recognizes the unique qualities of the town and will work to preserve them. He brings a real-estate businessman’s understanding of the underlying key economic forces (density, zoning, and real estate taxes) that impact us. How much growth is right for Princeton? i do not want another AvalonBay. Throughout his career, Marks has been a problem-solver who challenges lawyers whose advice might be off-track or too risk-adverse. Expensive capitulations must end. As mayor, Marks will work for all the people. He is not afraid to fight. He will challenge unneeded bureaucracy, trim municipal spending, and reverse onerous state mandates. He will focus his attention on wasteful school and county spending and will battle to preserve existing open spaces. He will open up the workings of the council by proposing to decide controversial zoning by referendum, as just one example. He will ensure that Borough and Township zoning regulations are combined and clarified after a four year delay under the current administration. Marks is a familiar face in Princeton; his will be a welcome one in the mayor’s office. JAMES HOCKENBERRy Randall Road

“Let Us Not Talk Falsely Now, The Hour Is Getting Late”: Literature, the Nobel, and Bob Dylan Sure was glad to get out of there alive. —Bob Dylan, “Day of the Locust” he “there” Dylan’s referring to is Princeton on the sweltering June day in 1970 when he received an Honorary Doctorate, a month after the shootings of students at Kent State. Hearing himself described as “the authentic expression of the disturbed and concerned conscience of Young America,” he “shuddered and trembled but remained expressionless.” In the words of his memoir, Chronicles Volume One (2004), “It was like a jolt …. There it was again. I couldn’t believe it!” He’s thinking “this kind of thing” could set “the public perception” of him back “a thousand years.” Yet he’s glad he came to get the degree. He “could use it. Every look and touch and scent of it spelled respectability and had something of the spirit of the universe in it.” There it is again — there he is again. At this writing, almost a week after the news from Stockholm was announced, Bob Dylan has yet to make public how he feels about receiving the 2016 Nobel Prize in literature “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.” Forty-six years on the other side of “Day of the Locust,” it’s possible that Dylan’s mind is still attuning itself to such things as “public perception,” “respectability,” and “the spirit of the universe.” As glad as he was to get out of Princeton alive, he made the most of it. Not only did the occasion inspire one of the characteristically ambiguous tropes that make his memoir itself a prize-worthy literary work, it gave him the seed of a song: the locusts that were singing for him are still singing for us. “Disease of Conceit” At a time when the virtual universe is buzzing over Donald Trump’s rocky horror picture show, there’s something reassuringly improbable about Bob Dylan’s Nobel Prize. People have quibbled. My only quibble is that the Nobel committee confined the author of Chronicles to “the great American song tradition.” There’s a moment in the book when he hasn’t written anything “in a long while” and “never expected to write anything ever again.” One night “all that changed” and he wrote 20 verses of “Political World.” The breakthrough happened to coincide with “a heated presidential race.” Since the songs that came to him were recorded between February and April of 1989, the race in question would have been the Bush-Dukakis-Willy Horton-Roger Ailes debacle that gave America Clarence Thomas. “A song is like a dream,” Dylan tells us, speaking of that night, “and you try to make it come true.” He’s not talking about song traditions or politics or “current events.” He’s talking about the act of writing: “From the far end of the kitchen a silver beam of moonlight pierced through the leaded panes of the window illuminating the table. The song seemed to hit the
wall, and I stopped writing and swayed backwards in the chair.” The only songs from that particular writing session that I’ve lived and driven around with, great songs brilliantly produced by Daniel Lanois, are “A Series of Dreams” and “Dignity,” where “Someone showed me a picture and I just laughed/ Dignity never been photographed.” You can almost hear that one hit the wall. Where’s “a song tradition” when you’re going af ter a single word w it h a world of meaning in it? “Disease of Conceit” was written in the same session. At the time Dylan had in mind Jimmy Swag gar t, t he de frocked Baptist preacher who’d been “linked to a prostitute,” but what he says about the concept has a d e f i n i te r i n g to it in m id October 2016: “A c o n c e i te d p er s on cou ld be set up easily and brought down accordingly. Let’s face it, a conceited person has a fake sense of self-worth, an inflated opinion of himself. A person like this can be controlled and manipulated completely if you know what buttons to push.” But then, once again, a song can be so much more than music: “The song rose up until I could read the look in its eyes. In the quiet of the evening I didn’t have to hunt far for it.” Dylan left a few verses behind, including the sample in Chronicles that seems so darkly in synch with the day of the final debate: “There’s a whole lot of people dreaming tonight about the disease of conceit, whole lot of people screaming tonight about the disease of conceit. I’ll hump ya and I’ll dump ya and I’ll blow your house down. I’ll slice into your cake before I leave town. Pick a number — take a seat, with the disease of conceit.” Elsewhere in Chronicles, Dylan shares the motive behind the dream: “You want to write songs that are bigger than life. You want to say something about strange things that have happened to you, strange things you have seen.” “You’re a Serious Poet” One of the virtues of Dylan’s memoir is that he tells you straight up where he’s coming from. The same chapter that describes graduation day in Princeton and
his impatience with being labeled “the conscience of a generation” begins with a meeting with Ernest Hemingway’s old friend Archibald MacLeish. Though Dylan refers to him as Archie, he clearly respects the man he calls “the poet of night stones and the quick earth.” The amount of space he gives to MacLeish, a Librarian of Congress and three-time Pulitzer-Prize-winner with “the aura of a governor, a ruler,” has some relevance to the recent news from Stockholm. The t wo dis cuss Pou nd and Eliot, and MacLeish talks about Stephen Crane who sounds to Dylan like “the Rober t Johnson of literature.” Mac Leish tells Dylan to his face t h at h e’s “a serious poet” whose work “wou ld b e a touchstone for generations,” a “postwar Iron Age poet” who h a d “s e e m ingly inherited something metaphysical from a bygone era.” It almost s ou nds as if Dylan’s anticipating the Nobel naysayers. H e’ d r a t h e r be a touchstone than a conscience, it seems. Writers and Women I just reread the closing paragraphs of the chapter in Chronicles about New York City in the early 60s. After passing the building Whitman lived and worked in, Dylan stands outside Poe’s house “staring mournfully up at the windows”: “The city was like some uncarved block without name or shape and it showed no favoritism. Everything was always new, always changing. It was never the same old crowd upon the streets.” In the chapter’s closing paragraph, Dylan describes stopping at a Spring Street coffee shop, where he gives special attention to the waitress at the counter with her “blue-black hair covered with a kerchief and piercing blue eyes …. I was wishing she’d pin a rose on me. She poured the steaming coffee and I turned back towards the street window. The whole city was dangling in front of my nose. I had a vivid idea of where everything was. The future was nothing to worry about. It was awfully close.” One among Dylan’s stories-in-song where you can feel the presence of the Spring Street waitress is “Tangled Up in
Blue,” in which a woman opens a book of poems written by an Italian poet from the 13th century and every word “rings true” and “glows like burning coal pouring off of every page like it was written in my soul from me to you.” Going Places Ray and Chloe, the couple Dylan lived with when he first came to New York, had a deep and unusual library that he made the most of (“I read a lot of the pages aloud and liked the sound of the words, the language”). Citing the Book of Martyrs, Tacitus, Thucydides, Gogol and Maupassant, Hugo and Dickens, he tells us he read all of Byron’s Don Juan and Robert Graves’s The White Goddess, and has companionable feelings for Balzac (“He wears a monk’s robe and drinks endless cups of coffee”). Speaking of Milton’s “Massacre in Piedmont,” he says, “It was like the folk song lyrics, even more elegant.” The Russians “had an especially dark presence.” He goes on to name Pushkin, Tolstoy, and Dostoevsky, and later in the book refers to the entire album he recorded based on Chekhov that critics thought was “autobiographical,” most likely Blood On the Tracks. The day Dylan left Ray and Chloe’s apartment for good, after Chloe “slapped some steak and onions” on his plate and said, “Here, it’s good for you,” he put on his hat and coat, grabbed his guitar and started bundling up. “Chloe knew that I was trying to get places. ‘Maybe someday your name will get around the country like wildfire,’ she’d say. ‘If you ever get a couple of hundred bucks, buy me something.’” Two Riders Approaching Lately I’ve been listening to some Dylan albums I know less well, like The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan (1963), an early record I feel humbled by, having set it aside for decades due to my rock-besotted indifference to traditional folk songs; now the words and music and singing in “Hard Rain” (“I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken”) and “Masters of War” (“Like Judas of old you lie and deceive”) sound pure and prescient. “I’ll never finish saying everything I feel,” Dylan tells Nat Hentoff in the liner notes, “but I’ll do my part to make some sense out of the way we’re living, and not living, now.” wonder what sense Dylan’s making of “the way we’re living, and not living, now.” Listening these days to “All Along the Watchtower” from John Wesley Harding (1968) gives me chills. The quibbles about Dylan’s qualifications for the Nobel remind me of the people who point out that princes can’t possibly be keeping the view along a watchtower. For a writer whose songs are bigger than life, the watchtower can be 10 miles long and a hundred miles wide if he so desires. And those two distant riders approaching as the wind begins to howl, what news are they bringing from the other side of the first week of November? —Stuart Mitchner

Activist Bill Ayers Discusses Manifesto
Social justice activist and teacher Bill Ayers will be at Labyrinth Books on Tuesday, October 25 at 6 p.m. to discuss his book, Demand the Impossible: A Radical Manifesto (Haymarket $14.95). Says Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Ever y thing and The Shock Doctrine, “With huge numbers of us recognizing the need for transformative change, this ambitious and exuberant book perfectly matches its historical moment. Ayers fearlessly confronts the intersecting crises of our age — endless war, surging inequality, unchecked white supremacy, and perilous planetary warming — while mapping emancipatory new possibilities….” Bill Ayers is Distinguished P r ofe s s or of E d u c at i o n (emeritus) at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and
author of the t wo memoirs, Fugitive Days and Public Enemy as well as of Teaching toward Freedom: Moral Commitment and Ethical Action in the Classroom, To Teach: The Journey of a Teacher, and Teaching with Conscience in an Imperfect World: An Invitation. ———
Terrell and Richardson Converse at Labyrinth
Novelist Whitney Terrell and his former teacher at Princeton, poet James Richardson, will be at Labyrinth Books on Wednesday, October 19 at 6 p.m. to talk about Terrell’s new novel The Good Lieutenant (Farrar, Straus & Giroux $26) and Richardson’s latest book of verse, During (Copper Canyon Press $16). Hailed by the Guardian as “The Bush wars’ best novel,” The Good Lieutenant was reviewed in The New Yorker as “A bitter, sly, heartbreaking story of well-meant but ill-fated intentions, and of a battlefield incident that wreaks havoc on the lives that converge, or end, there.” According to Copper Canyon, During is Richardson’s darkest, brightest, and most moving collection yet. From its breathtaking invocation to its final whispered address, it is somber, witty, curious, and exhilarated. An extended meditation on the durability of happiness and beauty, this volume includes more of Richardson’s profound aphorisms alongside lyric poems that wonder at this unfailingly surprising world.” Whitney Terrell is writerin-residence at the University of Missouri Kansas City. His
first novel, The Huntsman, was a New York Times notable book. His nonfiction has appeared in The New York Times, Details, Harper’s Magazine, and elsewhere. He was an embedded reporter in Iraq during 2006 and 2010 and covered the war for The Washington Post Magazine, Slate, and NPR. A professor of Creative Writing at Princeton, James Richardson is the author of By the Numbers: Poems and Aphorisms, which was a 2010 National Book Award finalist; Interglacial: New and Selected Poems and Aphorisms, which was a finalist for the 2004 National Book Critics Circle Award; Vectors: Aphorisms and Ten Second Essays; How Things Are; As If; Second Guesses; and Reservations. ———

particularly evident in one her favorite paintings being exhibited, Music in Fall. “Reliefs, light, brightness, and nuances of colors have oriented my artistic work,” says Ms. Jury. “Oil paintings allow an artist to play with those nuances through the superposition of paints. Additionally, elements of nature like water, sky, and wood, along with materials like metal and plastic give me inspiration. I was moved to produce Music in Fall after observing autumn leaves reflect on a river.” Jury’s modern paintings lend themselves to any interior, whether it is a living room or office. Their thought-provoking nature sparks conversation, without overwhelming a space. This makes them an ideal fit for BoConcept.

The works included are drawn from the Princeton University Art Museum collections as well as lent from private collectors, the artists and their galleries. “This fall the Princeton University Art Museum is looking closely at the art of South Asia, past and present, as one of the world’s richest visual traditions,” said James Steward, Nancy A. Nasher–David J. Haemisegger, Class of 1976, Director. Companion programming for the exhibition will include a public lecture on Nov. 10 by the guest curator and an artist’s talk by Shahzia Sikander on November 17. ( Sikander is also the recipient of two major art commissions for the Princeton campus, currently in progress.) C onte m p or a r y S tor i e s was organized in conjunction with Epic Tales from India: Paintings from The San Diego Museum of Art, an exhibition of one of the most significant collections of South Asian painting outside of India. The exhibition will premiere at the Princeton University Art Museum from November 19, 2016, through February 5, 2017, before traveling to two additional venues. Epic Tales encompasses more than 90 paintings drawn exclusively from the Edwin Binney 3rd Collection at the San Diego Museum of Art and explores the major narratives, regions and styles of South Asian art from the 16th through the 19th century. PUAM is located at the heart of the Princeton campus, a short walk from the shops and restaurants of Nassau Street. Admission is free.

Music and Theater Donna McKechnie Tells Princeton Students How to Succeed on the Broadway Stage
Princeton’s Tony® Award-Winning Theater
DISGRACED DIRECTED BY MARCEL A LORCA
NOW - OCTOBER 30 THE FIERCE AND PROVOCATIVE PULITZER PRIZE-WINNING DRAMA THAT TOOK BROADWAY BY STORM!
www.mccarter.org | 609.258.2787 In association with the Guthrie Theater and Milwaukee Repertory Theater McCarter programming is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts and by funds from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Donna McKechnie was all of 15 years old when she snuck out of her family’s house in Dearborn, Michigan to go on tour with a dance company. “I ran away to join the circus,” she joked on Monday during a questionand-answer session held at Princeton University’s Lewis Center for the Arts. “Luckily, you don’t have to do that anymore.” The famed Broadway performer was being interviewed by renowned director John Doyle, a visiting lecturer whose fall course, “Luminaries of the American Musical Theater,” has also included discussions with choreographer Graciela Daniele and Ted Chapin, the president of Rodgers & Hammerstein: An Imagem C o m p a n y. O r c h e s t r ator Jonathan Tunick, a specialist in the work of Stephen Sondheim, will appear next month. Sessions are free and open to the public. After being snatched back home by her father and reenrolled in high school, Ms. McKechnie soon convinced her parents to let her rejoin the troupe. It was the unofficial beginning of a career
that would lead to work with Michael Bennett on A Chorus Line, Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon on How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying; and the shows Promises, Promises and Company. She won a Tony Award for her portrayal of Cassie in A Chorus Line. With her Kewpie-doll face and dancer’s carriage, Ms. McKech n ie s eems much younger than her 73 years. There was no evidence of the arthritis she mentioned as she detailed the highs and lows of her career, which continues with her latest show, 4 Girls 4. Her autobiography, Time Steps: My Musical Comedy Life, was published in 2006. She has developed a one -woman show, Inside the Music, and continues to teach and coach. Ms. McKechnie took part
in the famous workshops that led to A Chorus Line at The Public Theater, and later, on Broadway. Her reminiscences w ill seem familiar to anyone who has seen the show. “I was a little ballet girl,” she recalled of her years in ballet school. “Dancing gave me so much. Ballet class was where I ran to feel good and feel safe.” Curious about the audition process, the teenaged Ms. McKechnie attended an audition in Detroit, with a friend, for a musical theater production. She had no intention of trying out, but her pal convinced her to do so. She got the job; her friend did not. “She’s still one of my best friends,” Ms. McKechnie joked. The sophisticated musical theater types who could dance jazz and tap as well as ballet dazzled the 15-yearold. “I was floored,” she

BROADWAY LUMINARY: Donna McKechnie, Tony Award-winning actress and dancer, spoke to students in Princeton University’s Lewis Center for the Arts this week about her career.
said. “I was quick to realize this was a whole different world and an amazing opportunity. I really loved it.” Once she convinced her parents to let her follow the troupe to New York, Ms. McKechnie moved to the city and lived at the Y. She soon landed a role in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, working with Mr. Fosse, the choreographer; and Ms. Verdon, who was the show’s dance captain. Frank Loesser, the show’s composer, gave her her first voice lesson. The young dancer realized early on that if she wanted to continue in musical theater, she would have to learn to be a “triple threat,” able to sing and act as well as dance. “One of the smartest things I ever did was take my $165 a week from How to Succeed’ and get acting and voice lessons,” she recalled. “And that’s been a theme of my life. I’m a professional student. I still go to dance class every day. And I have studied acting a lot.” On the 1960s musical variety television show Hullabaloo, Ms. McKechnie met fellow dancer Michael Bennett. The two were briefly married (Mr. Bennett died of AIDS in 1987). “He was a wonderful dancer. Even then, he always had a lot of dancers follow him around,” she said. “People knew he was so talented, even then. He knew how to choreograph something to fit someone else’s body.” Asked by Mr. Doyle if she was Mr. Bennett’s muse, Ms. McKechnie said, “I think we danced in a similar way. I loved his style and he loved the way I did his style. Neil Simon said I was Michael’s instrument.” Mr. Bennett spoke often of wanting to do a show based on dancers who appeared in the choruses of Broadway shows. “I would say to him, ‘You’d better hurry because I’m going to be on a walker soon.’ I was 30,” she said with a laugh. A Chorus Line started with tapes of dancers talking about their lives. It took two years before the workshops that led to the show were developed. Mr. Bennett took the tapes to Joseph Papp, then the director of The Public Theater. “He listened to a few minutes of the tapes, and he said, ‘You have carte blanche in this theater,’” Ms. McKechnie recalled of Mr. Papp. The first rendition of the show was four hours long. “It was bad,” she said. “There was a lot of trial and error. But that’s important. You have to learn how to fail.” A Chorus Line began to come together once composer Marvin Hamlisch and lyricist Edward Kleban joined the effort. The show ran for 6,137 performances, won nine Tony awards and the Pulitzer Prize for drama. It continues to be produced all over the world. Prodded by Mr. Doyle, Ms. McKechnie shared anecdotes about working with Ethel Merman (“She was autonomy personified”) and Elaine Stritch (“a pussycat with an edge”). Ms. Verdon was “my beacon,” she said. One of the main things she learned from her was the love of the training. “You want to pass it on,” Ms. McKechnie said. “You want people to take it and fly.” —Anne Levin
“Disgraced” at McCarter Confronts Troubling Contemporary Issues, Poses Hard Questions About Islamophobia and Cultural Identity
f Ayad Akhtar’s characters had followed my grandmother’s warning, “We never discuss politics or religion at social occasions,” his 2013 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Disgraced would never have been written. Now playing in a riveting production at McCarter’s Matthews Theatre, the 90-minute uninterrupted, four-scene exploration of identity, Islam, and what it means to be Muslim in contemporary America, as seen through the interwoven lives of five New York City characters, was the most often produced play in the United States in the 2015-16 season. Disgraced, which opened in Chicago in early 2012, saw its New York premiere at Lincoln Center later that year, and finally came to Broadway in 2014, where it received a Tony nomination for Best Play, is produced here in association with the Guthrie Theater of Minneapolis and Milwaukee Repertory Theater. This production, directed by the Guthrie’s Marcela Lorca, originated at the Guthrie, will play at McCarter through October 30, then move to Milwaukee to complete its run. Disgraced is not always pleasant to watch, as its singularly unheroic characters struggle through identity crises, the politics and religion become personal, and the drama uncovers uncomfortable truths hidden beneath the deceptive surfaces of upwardly mobile New York society. But this powerful, polished, provocative McCarter production makes it obvious why Disgraced has been so popular and fascinating for audiences at numerous productions throughout the country, and why McCarter Artistic Director Emily Mann was eager to bring it here. The play focuses on Amir (Maboud Ebrahimzadeh), American-born, assimilated Pakistani lawyer working his way up in a prestigious Manhattan law firm. He is married to Emily (Caroline Kaplan), a white artist, who is fascinated with Islamic culture and art and draws on those influences in her own work as she prepares for her first big gallery show. Their lavish Upper East Side apartment, over a period of several months in 2011-2012, is the setting for the four scenes of the play. Amir’s rejection of his Muslim heritage, to the point where he has even deceived many of his colleagues at work into thinking he is from India rather than Pakistan, causes friction with his wife and with his 22-year-old nephew Abe (Adit Dileep), name changed from Hussein, who stops
by to try to enlist his uncle’s support for the imam of his mosque, who has been arrested under suspicion of raising money for Hamas. Conflicts for Amir increase, with his denial of his Muslim identity and with the Jewish partners of his firm over what they see as his support for the imam and his duplicity surrounding his Islamic background. The third scene opens with Amir visibly upset and drinking heavily, as he and Emily prepare to entertain Isaac (Kevin Isola), a Whitney Museum curator who has helped to arrange the inclusion of Emily’s work in an upcoming show, and his wife Jory (Austene Van), a colleague in Amir’s law firm. The evening begins with cordiality and apparent warmth and good humor on all sides, but before long the mood darkens, as the liquor flows freely, secrets are revealed, and provocative statements are made — about politics, religion, race, and ethnicity. (Isaac is Jewish. Jory is black.) Shocking truths and bitter resentments emerge, and the civilized surface behaviors give way to savagery underneath — reminiscent of similarly vicious social gatherings in Yasmina Reza’s God of Carnage (2006) and Edward Albee’s classic Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1962). As the play approaches its climax, the dialogue bristles, the pace quickens, and the characters come to life in all their troubled, sometimes pitiful, sometimes ugly, sometimes brutal humanity. Mr. Akhtar’s
complex illumination of these characters is relentlessly thorough and detailed. The play raises important, upsetting questions — crucial questions about our lives in the 21st century in this violent, multi-cultural, conflicted country. Answers, resolutions are left for the audience to work out, perhaps in their own lives and communities. “There is no grand statement in Disgraced,” the 45-year-old playwright stated in an interview quoted in the program. “What there is, is a series of contradictions, and those contradictions is the experience I want the audience to be confronted with.” The cast of Disgraced is first-rate — credible and engaging, each providing a sympathetic and intriguing contemporary character. Mr. Ebrahimzadeh as Amir provides a strong, convincing focus for the action of the play — in his sophisticated swagger as a confident, successful lawyer; in his loving, often difficult interactions with his wife; in his attempts to help his nephew; in his contentious relationships with Isaac and Jory; in his struggle to reconcile his Muslim heritage with his ambitious pursuit of the American Dream; and in his ultimate disgrace. Portraying an equally complex, troubled persona, Ms. Kaplan’s Emily is an intriguing counterpart to Amir. Mr. Dileep’s Abe provides another thought-provoking per-
spective on the challenges of being Muslim in contemporary America, as, during the course of the play, he encounters the fears of society, and he questions his aunt and uncle and his own desire to assimilate. Mr. Isola’s Isaac and Ms. Van’s Jory create memorable high-energy characters and deliver stellar performances in confronting Amir and helping to propel the play to its striking, unsettling climax. Ms. Lorca has directed with skill and intelligence, moving the action forward at a brisk pace. She succeeds in achieving her goal, as she states in the program, “to invite an audience to empathize with each of our characters, and to not only root for the winners but to hold the ones who lose in their hearts, to be able to understand them.” In transitions between the scenes she reveals upstage what appears to be the city street below, with characters passing and interacting, as the audience is reminded of the larger context of the world outside the apartment and the lives of these characters and others in the big city. Production values here are consistently excellent, richly enhancing the creation of setting and mood in the shimmering, disturbing world of Disgraced: James Youmans’ elegant, elaborately detailed set; Ana Kuzmanic’s stylish costumes; Rui Rita’s nuanced, often shadowy lighting; and Scott Edwards’ emotionally affecting sound design, reflecting the atmosphere of the city and the unsettling mood of the play; with original music — sometimes jazzy, sometimes discordant — by Sanford Moore. Disgraced, the first play ever written by Mr. Akhtar, whose novel American Dervish has been published in more than 20 languages, is so deftly, expertly crafted that it risks at times feeling contrived, with its five characters, each embodying different ethnic, religious, political perspectives, and its events flowing so neatly towards the play’s climactic breaking point. These minor flaws, however, if they are flaws, do make for enthralling, provocative drama. very performance of this emotionally charged, upsetting play is followed by a short discussion, giving audience members the chance to “continue the conversation and reflect on your experience with fellow audience members,” perHOSPITALITY TO HOSTILITY: (L to R) Amir (Maboud Ebrahimzadeh), Emily (Caroline Kaplan), haps taking up the questions that the play Isaac (Kevin Isola), and Jory (Austene Van) enjoy a cordial dinner before resentments surface itself has posed and working towards the and the mood turns dark in McCarter Theatre’s production of Ayad Akhtar’s 2013 Pulitzer answers that Mr. Akhtar and his protagoPrize-winning drama “Disgraced,” at McCarter’s Matthews Theatre through October 30. nist continue to seek.

Richardson Chamber Players Open Season With Concert of North American Works
rinceton University’s Richardson Chamber Players presented a concert this past weekend suitable for the season; as kitchen thoughts turn to soups and stews of diverse ingredients, Sunday afternoon’s performance in Richardson Auditorium was a potpourri of musical gems mixed together to create a palette of North America club and cabaret music. Chamber Players concerts often focus on combinations of related instruments, in this case, a quintet of brass instruments and a pair of strings, interspersed with piano, percussion, and soprano voice. The brass quintet, comprised of trumpeters Wayne DuMaine and Henry Whitaker, trombonist Benjamin Herrington, horn player Chris Komer, and tuba player Brian Brown, carried the bulk of the concert’s weight, providing precise and exacting playing of some unusual and not often heard pieces. The Chamber Players’ “Melting Pot” began in the 19th century, with two works of Stephen Foster and one work of vaudevillian songwriter James Thornton. Thornton’s “When You Were Sweet Sixteen” was quite a hit in its day, and Andrew Rindfleisch’s arrangement for brass quintet captured well the sassiness of late 19th-century popular song. Thornton’s harmonies recalled a similar sentimentality to 19th-century barbershop pieces, combined with expansive melodies. Trombonist Mr. Herrington led the melodic playing, adding vibrato to give swagger and sweep to the music. The two Stephen Foster pieces paired with the Thornton song were played by the quintet with a clean and full sound, with crisp rhythms, and good dynamic swells. The brass quintet returned later in the concert for a number of smaller pieces scored for brass quintet and percussion. Joined by percussionist John Ferrari, the quintet of brass players presented three Modern Ballads for Brass Quintet and Percussion and Cuban composer Paquito D’Rivera’s Four Pieces for Brass Quintet and Percussion. The cornerstone of the Modern Ballads was Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla’s “Oblivion,” originally scored for orchestra but arranged over the years for a variety of instrumental combinations, including brass quintet and percussion. Throughout this piece, the trombone wailed and slinky playing was heard from all. D’Rivera’s Four Pieces for Brass Quin-
tet featured more leading passages from the tuba, with additional melodies heard from hornist Mr. Komer, who up until this point had provided principally accompaniment. The opening “Wapango” was very offbeat, with subtle percussion played by Mr. Ferrari on conga drums and cymbals. Mr. DuMaine provided a strong trumpet solo in the second movement “Danzón,” and Mr. Whitaker in particular played effective solos in several movements of D’Rivera’s work. Soprano Sarah Pelletier, a frequent performer in Princeton, presented five songs from American composer William Bolcom’s Cabaret Songs for Voice and Piano with theatricality and effective storytelling. Bolcom’s songs are also rooted in popular music, with “Lady Luck” in particular sounding as if it were out of a musical. In the third song, “Toothbrush Time,” Ms. Pelletier had a chance to show the richness to her voice, making the audience feel as though they were in a smoky club. Ms. Pelletier found both the saucy and lyrical aspects of these songs, clearly having fun in the process. One of the most challenging works on the program was Charles Ives’ Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano, played by violinist Anna Lim, cellist Susannah Chapman, and pianist Geoffrey Burleson. A youthful composition, this three movement work included popular tunes, pensive and lyrical passages, and difficult technical requirements from all players. The three instrumentalists communicated well among each other, especially Mr. Burleson, as moods and styles shifted quickly. Ms. Lim and Ms. Chapman played with appropriate intensity when required, often passing melodic passages back and forth. The second movement in particular was a complicated mixture of a number of tunes, both from popular culture and from Ives’s own alma mater at Yale. The trio of musicians came together well at the close of the work, ending with a subtle rendition of the hymn “Rock of Ages.” ichardson Chamber Players subtitled Sunday’s concert “Music with Folk Influence from the New World.” The various ensembles throughout the concert succeeded well in making the audience members feel as though they were in jazz clubs throughout North America. —Nancy Plum

CPA Becomes a Cutthroat Assassin in Cat-and-Mouse Movie
hristian Wolff (Ben Affleck) looks like your average CPA. The self-employed accountant has his own office in a modest building located in a nondescript strip mall in suburban Plainfield, Illinois. However, because he was born with Aspberger’s Syndrome, (a form of autism) he is a math savant, which makes him very well-suited to his profession. Nevertheless, looks can be very deceiving, because the mildmannered loner also has a shadowy side that he keeps under wraps. Consequently, no one has any idea that Christian’s clients are powerful mobsters whom he helps launder huge sums of cash without attracting the attention of the authorities. Over the years, he has become wealthy in his own right by cooking the books for crooks while resisting the temptation to live beyond his apparent means. Eventually, Christian’s business does arouse the suspicions of the U.S. Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division that is led by Director Raymond King (J.K. Simmons). Aware that the government agent Marybeth Medina (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) and her cohorts are on his tail, Christian decides to represent Living Robotics, a
respected, hi-tech firm, in order to provide a legitimate front for his business. However, he and an employee (Dana Cummings) at Living Robotics find their lives threatened when they uncover millions of dollars worth of corruption in the company. But those crooks have no idea that when Christian was growing up, he had been trained to defend himself by his protective father (Robert C. Trevelier), who trained his autistic son to not be bullied. Even though it has been many years since he has had to protect himself, those skills now kick in and Christian becomes a cold, calculating assassin. Thus unfolds The Accountant that is directed by Gavin O’Connor (Tumbleweeds). The film’s script has been artfully executed by an A-list cast of actors including Academy Award winners Ben Affleck and J.K. Simmons, as well as Oscar nominees Anna Kendrick and John Lithgow. Excellent (HHHH). Rated R for graphic violence and pervasive profanity. In English, French, and Indonesian with subtitles. Running time: 128 minutes. Distributor: Warner Brothers Pictures. —Kam Williams
Jacob Reed Student, Yale University New Haven, CT
Clara Gerdes Student, Curtis Institute of Music Philadelphia, PA THOSE LESSONS MY FATHER TAUGHT ME ARE PAYING OFF: Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) — who is a math savant with Asperger’s Syndrome — has become a calculating assassin thanks to his father, who taught Christian how to defend himself from bullies when he was growing up.

Rocky Horror Show Returns to New Hope
Dr. Frank N. Furter and his wacky entourage return to New Hope when The Rocky Horror Show comes to the New Hope Arts Center. Presented by the Downtown Performing Arts Center of Lambertville and Curtain Up Productions, performances of The Rocky Horror Show are scheduled for 9 p.m. on Friday, October 21, Saturday,
October 22, Friday, October 28, and Saturday, October 29. Tickets are $22 online and $25 at the door. The New Hope Arts Center seats 130 so purchasing tickets in advance is reommended. On a dark and stormy night, Brad Majors and Janet Weiss find themselves lost and with a flat tire. Their only choice for help is to knock on the door of a nearby castle where they
find Dr. Frank N. Furter and a group of strange characters holding their annual Transylvanian convention. The ensemble includes his servants Riff Raff and Magenta and a groupie named Columbia. The highlight of the evening is the introduction of Dr. Frank’s ultimate creation, the muscular, Rocky, who seems to be the object of everyone’s affection. The question: Will Brad and Janet be
able to escape the clutches of Dr. Frank or will they become his play things like the rest of his zany crew? This production of The Rocky Horror Show features actors who play their characters annually. Louis Palena will play Dr. Frank N. Furter and Jill Palena will reprise the role of Janet Weiss. David Whiteman returns to the role of Dr. Scott while Michael Moeller will reprise the role
of the Narrator. This production is an audience participation show with the audience encouraged to dress up as their favorite characters and verbally respond to the performance as it happens. Audience participation packages will be on sale at the theatre prior to all shows. The Rocky Horror Show will be performed at the New Hope Arts Center, located at 2 Stockton Avenue (Corner
of Bridge Street and Stockton Ave.) in New Hope, Pa. For tickets, directions and information, visit www.downtownpac.com.

PU Football Routs Brown 31-7, Moves to 4-1, Setting Up Ivy Showdown With Visiting Harvard
or Dorian Williams and the rest of the defensive unit on the Princeton University football team, a disappointing 42-28 defeat to Lehigh in late September proved to be a wakeup call. “Losing to Lehigh definitely let our defense know that we have a lot of work to do so after that loss we went back to the drawing board, we looked at ourselves in the mirror and made sure that we didn’t let that happen again,” said senior safety and tri-captain Williams, reflecting on the setback which saw Princeton yield 464 yards passing and 621 overall. “We are just focusing on fundamentals and our technique a lot more. In that Lehigh game, we made a lot of mental errors. We weren’t in the spots that we needed to be, we didn’t have our eyes on the right people we were supposed to have them on.” In the next two games, the defense tightened up as Princeton drubbed Columbia 48-13 on October 1 and then defeated Georgetown 31-17 a week later. Last Saturday against visiting Brown, the Tigers were looking to take things up a notch. “We knew that Brown was going to have a better offense so we had the same mentality going into this week,” said Williams. “We knew we couldn’t get complacent with what we have been doing. We definitely focused on coming in and making sure that we made a statement.” Williams got it done early for the Tigers, making an interception on Brown’s first possession that the Princeton offense cashed in for
a touchdown when Chad Kanoff hit Isaiah Barnes for a 33-yard scoring strike. “All week we were practicing double slants on one side and double outs on the other,” said Williams, reflecting on his interception. “We saw the slants coming; I was dropping and I saw the ball and I felt like I was waiting forever. When it finally came down, I noticed there were a 100 guys behind me, it was awesome. I really do think it set a tone.” The Tigers never looked back from there, jumping out to a 28-0 lead by halftime on the way to a 31-7 rout of the Bears before 5,881 at Princeton Stadium. It marked the third straight win for Princeton, which improved to 4-1 overall and 2-0 Ivy League, setting up a showdown with three-time defending Ivy champion Harvard (4-1 overall, 2-0 Ivy) coming to town on October 22. “I think our defense played awesome today,” said Williams, who made five tackles to go with his interception. “Our offense did a great job, they were moving the ball. We have an explosive offense so the more times they are on the field, the better chance we have of making a big play and I think we did that today.” The Princeton defense held Brown scoreless for the first 59 minutes of the contest, holding the Bears to 52 yards rushing and 200 yards total offense with 62 yards of that coming on the Bears’ last possession when they were facing the Tiger reserves. In assessing Princeton’s defensive progress since the Lehigh loss, Williams believes it is a product of attention to detail.
“We are trying to build off our previous weeks so each week there is more chemistry being built,” said Williams. “We are more precise in our alignments and our assignments in everything we are doing. We are just working on improving from the week before. That Lehigh loss is probably a blessing in disguise because it really helped us humble ourselves and focus on what we really need to do well and work on.” The Tigers also brought a little extra motivation to the contest, fueled by the memories of a 38-31 defeat to the Bears in 2015. “I think that was one of our worst losses that we had last year,” said Williams. “Coach (James) Perry played at Brown, he just tells us how they don’t think very highly of us so that was something we used as a chip on our shoulder to help us going into this game. We definitely had that when we went out there and played today.” Princeton head coach Bob Surace liked the intensity he saw from his players, beginning with that opening sequence when Princeton turned the Williams’ interception into a 7-0 lead. “It was great to start the game like that; we talked about getting off to a strong start and playing with passion,” said Surace. “To have those turnovers and get good field position and to finish drives really led to the victory.” Surace tipped his hat to the Tiger defensive front seven, who had put the heat on Brown quarterback Thomas Linta throughout the contest. “I thought we really did a good job on defense all day,”
said Surace. “We were able to really force their QB into some tight, tight windows. He completed some and he is a good player but sometimes there wasn’t even a chance because we knocked it down. We didn’t get a lot of sacks but disruptions are more important than sacks. At the end of the day, the more times you can hit him, knock the ball down, the better chance you have to win.” Princeton got good play from its quarterbacks as senior Kanoff hit on 16-of-23 passes for 185 yards and one touchdown while junior John Lovett connected on 6-of-7 passes for 71 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for another TD as he was named the Ivy Offensive Player of the Week for a second straight week. “I thought if we got manto-man, we are going to throw it to Isaiah or Trevor Osborne or James Frusciante,” said Surace. “Chad was told he is throwing it and he put it right on the money. Isaiah beat the guy and that is what you want to have, those guys in an aggressive mindset.” With powerful Harvard invading Princeton Stadium this Saturday, Surace is looking for his players to maintain the winning mindset they have displayed this fall. “Since I have been here, Harvard has been a tremendous team,” said Surace. “I am sure when I watch them tomorrow, I am going to leave thinking this is a tremendous, talented team, well coached and everything else. It is not going to change, that is how they are going to be. We have to continue to prepare and practice hard and control what we control and that is going to be a key. You love the mindset of the team and how they approach practice, how they approach meetings, and how

Those are things you really enjoy because some of these guys have five weeks left to be in this type of atmosphere and you want to enjoy every moment. There are only 10 more physical, hard practices and we have got to enjoy it.” In Williams’ view, the Tigers will be committed to working hard for their clash with the Crimson. “Two years we had kind of
the same dynamics and they came in here and rocked us (49-7),” said Williams, noting that Harvard also beat Princeton handily (42-7) last year. “That is something that we are going to use, that is going to be a chip on our shoulder and the mentality we have going into practice this week. We are excited; it is the homecoming game so it should be a good one.” —Bill Alden

Before the puck has even dropped for the 2016 -17 season, the Princeton Univer s it y wom e n’s ho cke y team is turning heads. Princeton is ranked seventh nationally in the U S C H O ( U. S . C o l l e g e Hockey Online) preseason poll and third in the ECAC Hockey preseason coaches poll, coming off a superb 22-9-2 season last winter which saw the Tigers win the Iv y League title and make their first appearance in the NCA A tournament since 2006. W h i l e P r i n c e ton h e a d coach Jeff Kampersal is excited to see the Tigers receive that recognition, he knows it means there is a target on his team’s back. “This year is going to be a lot harder than last year, no question,” said Kampersal, who is entering his 21st year at the helm of the program and has compiled a 307-251-55 record. “The preseason polls are noteworthy in terms of trying to create media attention but we have got to play games.” Steeled by the experience of playing in a number of big games last winter, the Princeton players are not taking anything for granted in the wake of last year’s success. “Preseason is going well, they all worked hard over the summer,” said Kampersal, whose team opens its 2016-17 campaign by playing a two-game set at Providence College on October 22-23. “I think they are aware of what it takes to compete in the playoffs and compete in the NCAA tournament. They know how hard it was to get there and that just by showing up, we can’t get it done his year.” With a core of seven battle-tested seniors, the team is getting some good leadership to show the way. “They have been really good, Kelsey Koelzer is our captain and the assistant captains are Fiona McKenna and Molly Contini,” said Kampersal, referring to his senior class. “It is a good mix; they have a good feel on the pulse of the team. They all work hard so they are good leaders by example. They each have different styles but I t h in k it all works out.” Kampersal is expecting good work from sophomore forward Karlie Lund, who enjoyed a huge freshman campaign, getting named as the 2015-16 ECAC Hockey Rookie of the Year and the Ivy League Rookie of the Year after piling up a team-high 39 points in 17 goals and 22 assists. “Karlie had a really good summer, she has come back
in better shape than she was last year,” said Kampersal. “We expect big t hings from her but again she will have a little bit more attention this year.” Freshman Carly Bullock has the potential to do some big things as she follows in the footsteps of high school teammate Lund. “Carly played with Karlie at the Blake School in Minnesota and she set a state tournament record for goals so she can definitely put the puck away,” said Kampersal. “She is going to have to figure out how to do it a little quicker at this next level. Princeton is looking for senior Contini (10 goals and 15 assists in 2015-16) to take things to a higher level. “Contini had a high ankle sprain so she missed four games,” said Kampersal. “She played the rest of the year, not necessarily at full speed so she is back to being Molly, she is very clever and tricky with her stick.” The team’s corps of forwards features a number of clever veterans in senior Morgan Sly (9 goals, 13 assists), senior Cassidy Tucker (10 goals, 8 assists), junior Kiersten Falck (3 goals, 6 assists ), and sophomore Keiko DeClerck (4 goals, 5 assists). “Morgan does a good job of wiggling out of trouble and getting shots off, her shooting percentage is fairly high,” said Kampersal. “Tucker and Lund have looked the best so far in camp. I think Falck is going to have a big year, she is a really good skater. I am hoping this is a breakout year for her. DeClerck is a grinder, she will be a checking forward.” Senior defenseman Koelzer produced a breakout campaign last winter, scoring 33 points on 17 goals and 16 assists on the way to earning first-team All American honors and figures to be one of the top players in the country this year. “Kelsey had a good summer, she played with the U.S. U-22 team so she had a good experience there,” said Kampersal. “She looks like her dominant self in practice, she is doing a good job. The key for her is to try not to do too much and just rely on her instincts and take her chances when they come instead of forcing things.” S op h o m or e S te p h a n i e Sucharda (3 goals, 14 assists) also had a big summer as she played for Canada’s U-22 team and should be a force on the blue line for the Tigers.

“S te p h a n i e i s lo ok i n g very good, still the same, very poised, she can slow t he game dow n,” added Kampersal. “She is a great breakout passer, we expect a lot out of her as well.” A pair of tough veterans, Molly Strabley (2 goals, 9 assists ) and junior Emily Achterkirch (1 goal, 5 assists) along with freshmen Sylvie Wallin, Julia Edgar, and Claire Thompson will p r ov i d e P r i n c e to n w i t h good depth in its defensive unit. “Strabley, and Achterkirch will give us shifts; they had good experience last year,” said Kampersal. “I think Sylvie Wallin and Julia Edgar will play a lot as well as Claire Thompson.” At goalie, junior Alysia DaSilva (4-1 record, 0.94 goals against average, 954 save percentage in 201516) and promising freshman Steph Neatby, a member of Canada’s U-22 team, are vying for time between the pipes. “I think it has been a very good open competition,”
said Kampersal. “DaSilva had one of the better summers in terms of conditioning, she came back in great shape. She is a good gamer kind of goalie so we expect her to step up. Neatby is a good goalie with a lot of promise. She is tall and is working to improve like any goalie but she will push Sils for sure.” In assessing his team’s prospects for the upcoming season, Kampersal believes Princeton should be pushing for titles. “I think the potential is high for sure,” said Kampersal. “Our goals are to get to the ECAC final 4 and get that spot that had been eluding us for a while and then go from there.” Going up to New England to open the season at Providence (2-3) will be a good litmus test for the Tigers. “Providence always comp ete s re ally hard ; t heir coach ( B ob D eraney ) is high energy and their team plays high energ y,” said Kampersal. “We don’t k now a ton about them but their league is a good league and they are a good, strong team.” —Bill Alden

With Junior Star McCarthy Setting the Tempo, No. 11 PU Field Hockey Defeats Brown 5-1 It didn’t take long for the 11th-ranked Princeton University field hockey team to set the tone as it hosted Brown last Saturday in a critical Ivy League contest. Just 1:21 into the game, Princeton senior star Cat Caro tallied off a penalty corner as the Tigers jumped into a 1-0 lead. After a second Caro goal, junior standout Ryan McCarthy assisted on a goal by Rachel Park and then found the back of the cage herself for a goal as the Tigers built a 4-0 halftime lead. “We had a lot of energy, we were composed and we took control of the game,” said McCarthy in assessing Princeton’s first half performance. “We just had possession the whole time and were passing really well.” Good passing helped McCar thy get on the score sheet. “It was a perfect pass from Carlotta (von Gierke); she saw me coming out and I circled around and saw Rachel in the right spot and she was there to put it in,” said McCarthy, a 5’4 native of Madison, N.J. “My goal was another pass from Lotty, I just took it in, saw the net and shot it in.” In the second half, Brown got one in to make it 4-1 but the Tigers responded with another tally by Caro to put the finishing touch on a 5-1 victory. “We kind of lost our tempo and we took time out, regrouped and went back in and dominated the last 10 minutes,” said McCarthy. McCarthy looks to keep the tempo up for the Princeton attack. “I am a forward so we run a lot; you build off of everybody’s energy,” said
McCarthy. “It starts from the defense to the midfield and then forward. I think it is a whole team effort that brings the energy.” Having tallied seven goals and four assists in 2015, McCarthy has brought up her production, contributing 11 goals and four assists so far this season. “The team has been giving me perfect balls, perfect passes, they are always in the right spot,” said McCarthy, who scored two goals in an 8-0 win over Towson last Sunday as the Tigers improved to 9-5 overall. With Princeton in a good spot as it heads into the final weeks of the season, McCarthy credits the coaching staff with instilling cohesion on the field. “The team has come together really well this year,” said McCarthy. “The new coaches (head coach Carla Tagliente and assistant Dina Rizzo) are a big part of that. They have really led the charge and got us going where we need to go this year.” Princeton head coach Tagliente certainly liked the way her squad charged out of the gate in the win over Brown. “ Ev e r y t h i n g w a s r e a l sharp, the defense was sharp and basic skills were clean,” said Tagliente. “Ever y thing was really clicking; it helps when you get a couple on the board. With this team, they are so athletic and when they can defend well and they do those simple things well, it really lends to what we can do on attack.”

Although the Tigers went through a brief lull in the second half when Brown scored to make it a 4-1 game, Princeton came on strong in the waning moments of the contest. “We were defending on the back foot instead of the front foot, that is what is going to happen, you are going to get dinged,” said Tagliente, whose team improved to 4-0 in Ivy League play with the win over the Bears. “We had a timeout and we talked a little about using the last 15 minutes and trying to get ready. I think we were just coasting at half a little bit but post-timeout, we had a lot of attack. I would like to see more drop but the goal was nice.” It has been nice for Tagliente to see the production she is getting from senior star and co-captain Caro, who produced another hat trick in the win over Towson. “I thought she had a good start; she has done that in a few games,” said Tagliente. “She got on the board twice early and for her that is key. I think her confidence just rises from there. It is good to see her get three. She has earned it and deserved it. I think overall it was a great performance.” McCarthy has been giving Princeton some great intensity. “Ryan just does all of the intangibles that you can’t really quantify,” said Tagliente. “She plays with so much heart; she is a good player on top of it. She sees when the tempo and the energy isn’t there and she tries to change it and I think you saw that. In the last 15 minutes, probably 80 percent of the circle passes were traced to a pass from her or a defensive play from her.” Princeton will be bringing plenty of energy to the field as it hosts Harvard (8-4 overall, 4-0 Ivy) on October 22 in a game that could decide the league title. “The message we have been sending is clear, the gap isn’t closing, we are extending that gap and that is going to continue to be the focus,” said Tagliente, whose team has outscored its Ivy foes 18-1 in its first four league contests. “I think the competitive level of these guys in practice and their demeanor has been great. Every Ivy game means so much and these guys have done a nice job to mentally stay in the moment and just play their game. They have done a great job of doing what we ask them to do and to trust in this process.” McCarthy, for her part, is confident that the Tigers will keep in the moment as they battle the Crimson. “We have been dominating most of the Ivy games,” said McCarthy. “It is just us and Harvard who are left undefeated so that is going to be a big game. It is just play our game; we know if we play our game then we can take control of the game and win.” —Bill Alden

Battling Through Ups and Downs in 13-7 Start, No. 9 PU Men’s Water Polo Excited for Stretch Drive Over its first 20 games, the Princeton Universit y men’s water polo team has shown flashes of brilliance interspersed with some untimely offensive lulls. “I feel like we know we are close to being a very special team; that first game against UCSB out in California, a top six team, we lost to in sudden death (12-11 in 3OT on September 23) and I think the guys just showed how good we can be,” said Princeton head coach Luis Nicolao, reflecting on his team’s 13-7 start. “I think right now it is just finding that consistency; unfortunately for some reason we have lost four one-goal games. We have had the lead in the fourth quarter in every one of those games. We were down big to start with, like 4-0, 4-1, and we battle back, tie it and get the lead. Now it is trying to get to sealing the deal.” After dropping its latest nail-biter, an 8-7 loss to Bucknell last Saturday in the Crimson Invitational in Cambridge, Mass., the Tigers are getting a much needed break with their next game action not coming until October 29 when they play at Iona and St. Francis. “The break comes at a great time; I think we are emotionally and physically just tired,” said Nicolao. “Right now we are really struggling, we have one guy out with a concussion. One of our best freshmen got his cheekbone broken two weeks
ago and he is having surgery so we are really short on the bench right now. We had the head cold go through our team; we were missing two to three guys and there were days where we couldn’t even run a practice.” While Princeton may be lacking quantity at times, the team has displayed plenty of quality, led by sophomore star Matt Payne, who leads the Tigers with 40 goals and 37 assists. “Matt is one of our high energy guys, emotionally and physically,” said Nicolao. “He gets very excited for games, he is very intense. He has had some really good offensive production games; you look at the Bucknell game, he scored four of our seven goals.” Sophomore Ryan Wilson (16 goals, 31 assists) and freshman Sean Duncan (38 goals, 3 assists) have been providing good production as well. “Ryan Wilson is a stellar, heart player; he has to settle a bit on offense,” added Nicolao. “O u r f r e s h m a n , S e a n Duncan, at two meters has had an exceptional year. We don’t have anybody in front of him so sometimes you go through some lumps. He is 18-years-old setting against junior and seniors who are two, three years older than him and holding his own. He is having some on the job training and he has been doing very well.”
The Tigers have been doing well on the defensive end, giving up 8.65 goals a game so far this fall. “Vojislav ( Mitrovic) has been exceptional in the goal; our defense has been good,” said Nicolao. “Like I told the guys after Bucknell, you hold a team to less than 10 goals, you should win the game. We have done that a couple of times this year where we have held a team to eight or nine goals and end up losing by a goal.” As the team returns to action, Nicolao is looking for sharper play on offense. “We know defensively that we can stay in the game,” said Nicolao. “Now it is go out there and put some shots away so that we can take one of these close games, separate, and pull ahead. Maybe that will come with some rest and getting healthy.” Despite the ups and downs so far, Nicolao believes that his team has a good shot at winning the Northeast Water Polo Conference (NWPC) title. “We have got a couple of big games up in New England in early November against Harvard and Brown and then we host the NWPC championships,” said Nicolao. “We are excited about the end of the season like always. We are excited about the progress we are making, we have a lot of new faces. The question is can we get healthy and put together a good run at the end.” —Bill Alden

Led by Senior Gerdes’ Steady Play at 2d Singles, PHS Girls’ Tennis Tops WW/P-S for Sectional Title Elise Gerdes knew that she got a break as the top-seeded Princeton High girls’ tennis team hosted fourth-seeded Montgomery in the Group 4 Central Jersey sectional semifinals last Friday. “I felt pretty confident because I knew that their regular second singles player was hurt,” said senior star Gerdes. “That gave me a little bit less pressure to deal with because I knew that their lineup was not as strong as it should have been.” Gerdes produced a strong effort, rolling to a 6-3, 6-2 win over Khoshna Ande at second singles to help PHS pull out a 3-2 win over the Cougars. “I just played my game and whenever things weren’t working out, I just thought positive,” recalled Gerdes. “This is what I want to do. It is my last year, I persevered and finished strongly.” The Little Tigers needed a strong finish from its second doubles team of senior Brinda Suppiah and sophomore Adriana Todorova to earn the clinching point in the match against Montgomery as they battled to a 6-3, 7-5 win over Somali Desai and Katie Parsons. “I definitely was a bit nervous but I knew they could
do it,” said Gerdes, who nervously watched the end of the second doubles match with the rest of her teammates and coaches. “I knew they had the potential to do it and they came through.” Priding herself on being consistent, Gerdes came through against WW/P-S in the sectional final on Monday, rallying to a 2-6, 6-4, 6-1 win over Stephanie Ji at second singles to help PHS edge the Pirates 3-2. “I guess they do need that on the team, the steady Eddie,” said Gerdes. “I try to stay cool and positive. I try to stay in the groove and help the team that way.” Gerdes is proud to see the PHS team back in the groove after it faltered in the 2015 sectionals. “I am ver y proud and happy that we can do that this year because last year we dropped a little bit and we weren’t able to get as far, although we did do it for five years before that,” said Gerdes, who was in the PHS lineup for its 2014 sectional crown. “I am glad that we can jump back on the bandwagon and get back up to where we were recently.” PHS head coach Christian Herzog didn’t see a sectional title in the cards when the 2016 season started.
SERVING UP A WINNER: Princeton High girls’ tennis player Elise Gerdes blasts a serve in a match earlier this season. Last Monday, senior star Gerdes rallied for a 2-6, 6-4, 6-1 win over Stephanie Ji of WW/P-S at second singles to help PHS edge the Pirates 3-2 in the Group 4 Central Jersey sectional final. The Little Tigers, now 15-2, advanced to the state Group 4 semifinals on October 20 at Mercer County Park against the winner of the Ridge-J.P Stevens North Jersey, Section 2, Group 4 final.

“I knew that we were going to get some talent in but I had no idea that we were going to get as strong a group of freshmen as we did,” said Herzog, who got a straight-set win from freshman Samantha Singer at first singles against WW/P-S with the second doubles team of Suppiah and Todorova pulling out a three-setter for the other team point. “Spencer Watts has been giving us points at No, 3 all season. Sam always comes out and plays her best, some she will win, some she won’t. She plays the toughest competitor but she never gives up. At the end of last year, I would not have thought that we would be in this position.” In the w in over Montgomery, the toughness of Suppiah and Todorova at second doubles made the difference. “Today it came down to the more experienced team; Adriana had been playing doubles and this is Brinda’s last year as a senior,” said Herzog. “My heart was skipping a few beats there, that has been our M.O. If you look at a lot of the scores, we don’t feel the pressure in the first set and then all of a sudden, we let a few points get away from us and we get a little sloppy. Then we come back and finish it, whether it be 7-5 or winning in a tiebreak. They have shown even when we let the second set get away from us a little bit we can come back and reel it in in the end. I think that is a testament to their willingness to work together for the shared goal.” Having achieved the goal of a sectional title, PHS is now pursuing a state crown as it will play in the Group 4 state semifinals on October 20 at Mercer County Park against the winner of the Ridge — J.P Stevens North Jersey, Section 2, Group 4 final. “We want to go as far as we can, particularly for the seniors,” said Herzog, whose team is bringing a 15-2 record into the Group 4 semis. “The vision starts with the seniors and getting everyone to buy in and trying to make the best of what we have in terms of talent.” Gerdes, for her part, is looking to make the most of her last season with the Little Tigers. “The season is almost over and we just want to keep going,” said Gerdes. “There are only so many matches left; it means so much that we can achieve this in my last year.” —Bill Alden

Making a Statement by Taking 2nd at Shore Coaches, PHS Girls’ Cross Country Primed for County Meet For the Princeton High girls’ cross country team, competing in the prestigious Shore Coaches Invitational was a chance to make a statement. Proving that it is an elite team, PHS placed second of 23 teams in the Varsity C race at the event. Junior star Chloe Taylor set the pace for the Little Tigers, taking seventh ind iv idually, cover ing t he 5,000-meter course at Holmdel Park in 19:57.00. Senior Anne Walker took ninth with senior Izzy Trenholm coming in 10th, senior AnneFleur Hartmanshenn finishing 15th, and junior Lauren Cleary placing 44th. PHS head coach Jim Smirk saw the performance as a coming out party for a team that had been flying under the radar. “It was awesome, we were thrilled,” said Smirk. “We have been unranked for a majority of the season thus far and we just got ranked in the top 20 in the state after the Shore Coaches. I won’t say that we felt wronged but I guess we were surprised that we were ranked behind teams that we thought we could race with.” Taylor has been proving this fall that she can race with anyone. “Chloe was away for most of the summer but was able to manage her training really well,” said Smirk. “She showed a lot of maturity there and has really taken on a deep understanding that it is not just the miles, she is doing a lot of those other things to help her be successful. She is really calm in those competitive moments and I think she is letting that show a little more.” Tr e n h ol m s h owe d h e r competitiveness at the Shore Coaches meet. “Izzy has been on varsity for a long time but never had that race where she was really in there and really had to fight for it and she did that at Shore,” said Smirk. Walker’s emergence as a solid racer has been a key factor for the Little Tigers. “Annie Walker was always super talented but couldn’t stay healthy,” said Smirk. “She is a kid who is passionate about running but had an injury issue and it took her forever to get over it. She is healthy and ready to go, so we are excited to have her.” Smirk is particularly excited about the progress made by Hartmanshenn over her career. “I think the real Cinderella story here is AnneFleur Hartmanshenn,” said Smirk. “She is a kid who came in as a freshman and she was an OK runner. She didn’t run on varsity consistently her freshman year; she had some moments here or there. Now we are really seeing her wrap her head around the idea that wait a minute here,
well loved and well read since 1946
I am a senior, I have done a lot of work and I want that work to pay off. It is paying off in spades. I am thrilled with her as an athlete as well as a captain.” Hard work has also been paying off for Cleary. “I would say our fifth runner, Lauren Cleary, is a kid who I don’t think was on anybody’s radar, other than maybe mine because every day I see her practice,” said Smirk. “She was eventually going to put it together and I was really excited because our team has been really patient
in letting her grow into becoming a better runner. Her training is top notch, she is focused, she is driven. She is definitely always in. When the training gets harder, she is right there grinding away at it and finding a way to be better. We are seeing that in her racing as well.” With the Mercer County Championships coming up on October 28 at Thompson Park in Jamesburg, Smirk believes his runners will be focused. “There is a lot of racing at a high level, so it is get healthy and get ready,” said Smirk. “I think there is a little bit of a confidence piece there.” —Bill Alden

Over the years, a long line of top flight goalies has helped form the foundation of the highly successful Princeton High boys’ soccer program. Such standout keepers as Owen Lindenfeldar, Laurenz Reimitz, and Steve Hellstern have starred as PHS has won two state titles along with a slew of sectional, MCT, and CVC crowns under head coach Wayne Sutcliffe. This fall, junior Patrick Jacobs has assumed the mantle of PHS goalie and is enjoying making his mark for the Little Tigers. “It has been good, it has been fun so far,” said Jacobs. “It is good because we are a young team and there is a new challenge every game, we are still getting used to each other.” PHS was up to the challenge last week as it topped visiting Ewing 4-1, playing on Farmview Fields due to a scheduling conflict for the turf field and drainage and turf issues with the Valley Road field. “We like to keep possession to start with, and then because of how the pitch played, we wanted to get it out first, and then in the front half we try to keep possession,” said Jacobs,
reflecting on the win which saw him record three saves. “Then we just tried to finalize and score off some set pieces, which we did well today.” Jacobs was happy with how the defense did on the day. “I think as a defense we pressured well; we got the ball back quickly and that led to some more offense for us,” said Jacobs. “I was pretty happy with the effort, I think we should have done bet ter at the end. We have a lot more to improve on. Going into the postseason, we need to touch up a few things.” Playing with twin brother Ian, a starting defender, has helped things go smoother for Jacobs this fall. “I know what he is going to do sometimes on the ball,” said Jacobs. “I do think we play well together.” Playing behind Lindenfeldar last fall was a valuable learning experience for Jacobs. “Owen helped me a lot, I was playing under him all last year, he taught me a lot along with coach (Carlos) Salazar and the rest of the staff,” said Jacobs, who made eight saves in a 1-0 win over Trenton last Monday as the Little Tigers improved to 14-1.
ON A ROLL: Princeton High boys’ soccer goalie Patrick Jacobs rolls the ball up the field in a game earlier this season.

“He was a big help for me. It is simply getting used to the starting role and just being in that position.” PHS head coach Sutcliffe likes the progress he is seeing from Jacobs as he adjusts to the starting goalie role. “Pat is doing great, he is focusing, he is improving,” said Sutcliffe, who recently passed the 300-win mark in his tenure guiding the Little Tigers. “We have total confidence in him.” In the win over Ewing, Jacobs and the defensive unit displayed some confident play. “I was very happy with the back four and Pat, credit to them for their work,” said Sutcliffe. “Ewing didn’t put a tremendous amount of pressure on us but I am very happy with their performance today. The key to it all going forward is that our back four have to become more greedy at not relinquishing goals.” The PHS midfield, on the other hand, put the pressure on Ewing as senior star Andrew Goldsmith tallied three with junior Remy Hebert adding the fourth. “It was one of our best games from our midfield in terms of keeping the ball and finding one another,” said Sutcliffe. “Drew Beamer was really sharp and then Andrew Goldsmith was really good. He converts three; it was a big day for him.” It was another big performance for senior defender Sam Serxner, who had two assists and bedeviled Ewing with his long, looping throw-ins and soaring corner kicks. “Sam has been incredibly consistent on his set pieces, his corners, and his throws,” added Sutcliffe. “He has been just deadly.” With PHS starting play in the Mercer County Tournament this week where they are seeded second and host a first round contest on October 20 against the victor of the MCT play-in game between Hightstown and Nottingham, Sutcliffe believes the team’s collective consistency will serve it well in postseason action. “We are really happy with our goal production, we are finding ways to score,” said Sutcliffe. “T he chemistr y of the group has been building and we have been working pretty hard on trying to find ourselves in the best emotional state going into this and being resilient; working for one another and working with one another harder. It is tournament time, this is the business end of the season and with all the preparation, I think we are in a good spot but it is just one game at a time.” Jacobs, for his part, believes the Little Tigers are ready to take care of business in the postseason. “We have to keep up what we have been doing all year, keeping it simple, getting possession, and then scoring off the set pieces and defending well,” said Jacobs. “We are pretty confident going in. We would like to win the MCTs, that would be great for us. We feel good about the other competitions too.” —Bill Alden
PHS Football Falls to WW/P-S 42-18 But Giles Enjoys Breakthrough Effort It was the annual Friday night lights homecoming ga m e for t he P r i nce ton H igh fo otba l l te a m a nd there was an electric atmosphere as the program hosted WW/P-S. There was a throng filling the stands on the crisp autumn evening, led by a spirited PHS student section and a rocking jazz band. Little Tiger sophomore running back Carson Giles got caught up in the buzz. “We were ready to go off the bat,” said Giles. “We were excited. It was homecoming, everybody was out there, it was a lot of energy. Feeding on that energy, Giles ripped off a number of big runs in the first half. He bulled 18 yards for a touchdown early in the second quarter to get PHS on the board as it trailed 7-6. Later in the quarter, Giles broke loose on some big runs to help the Little Tigers march 71 yards in a drive culminated by a 7-yard TD pass from Vince Doran to Jakob Green to draw within 14-12 at the half. “It was just one of those n ight s where you cou ld see everything,” said the 5’9, 200-pound Giles, who rushed for more than 100 yards in the first half. “My offensive line (Ethan Guerra, Marqui McBride, Adam Musa, Finn Kaiser,
and Jaylen Johnson) is terrific, they are great. They do a great job of making sure the plays go the right way.” In the second half, however, the WW/P-S running attack, led by Zyion Cooper, who ended the evening w ith 335 yards r ushing, took over the contest as the Pirates pulled away to a 4218 win over PHS. “As the game went along, they keyed in on the running game and we had to try to pass the ball and sometimes that wasn’t there and sometimes it was there,” said Giles, ref lecting on the loss which dropped the Little Tigers to 1-5. “We got killed on defense on the big plays, their No. 3. (Cooper) was talented, t hat was a great job by him.” In stepping into the starting running back job, Giles has gone t hrough s ome growing pains. “I think one of the challenges is trying to fill the shoes of Rory Helstrom; he was a great player,” said Giles. “The biggest thing is that the speed of the game is insane on varsity. I am a big
boy at 200 pounds so I am not used to it.” Giles has clearly been getting up to speed in recent weeks, ending up with 172 yards rushing in the loss to W W/PS after running for 110 yards in a 55-16 loss to Steinert on October 8. “Mostly it is my coaches, Dave Filson, Joe Gargione, a n d C h a r l i e G a l l a g h e r, talking to me about doing things like keeping my eyes up field,” said Giles, reflecting on his progress. “A f te r pr ac t i c e, I r u n spr ints, doing t he extra stuff has been helping me. A running back is only as good as his offensive line and my offensive line is terrific.” With PHS playing at Nor t her n B u rli ng ton on October 21, Giles is confident that the Little Tigers can get back on the winning track as they look to snap a four-game losing streak. “We have a lot of talent on this team and we just need to start delivering,” said Giles. “You can’t dwell on these games, you have got to move on. We just have to catch our stride. This is a special team and I think it is a team to watch out for in the future.” —Bill Alden

Drawing 0-0 With Pennington in Clash of Unbeatens, PDS Girls’ Soccer Steeled for Tournament Challenges
ing their record and knowing ours, both teams are so well respected. We were hyped coming into this game.” The meeting of unbeatens turned out to be an intense battle of wills as the teams battled to a scoreless tie through 80 minutes of regulation and 20 minutes of overtime. In reflecting on the 0-0 draw, Atkeson tipped her hat to the PDS defensive effort. “Maddie Coyne and Becca Kuzmicz are holding together back there and so is Tulsi Pari, a freshman as well, which is pretty incredible,” said Atkeson. “Coming in a game like this is usually pretty intimidating; she did a great job back there.” Atkeson had her job description modified for the showdown against the Red Raiders. “Usually I sweep in front of the back but we had some injuries and we were switching it up and seeing what we could do to make the best ______________ of the situation,” explained Atkeson. _______________ Date & Time: ______________________ Having lost in double overour ad, scheduled to run ___________________. time to the Red Raiders last oughly and pay special attention to the following: season, the Panthers were determined to hold the fort ill tell us it’s okay) in the extra sessions. � Fax number � Address � Expiration Date “On the sidelines we were really hyped, coming into double overtime was kind of a flashback,” said Atkeson. “They got one in double OT last year, so there was ABBY ROAD: Princeton Day School girls’ soccer player Abby definitely a mentality of ‘we Atkeson controls the ball in recent action.

ing play in the Mercer County Tournament this week where they are seeded third and host No. 14 Hun in a first round contest on October 19. Two-time defending champion PDS is seeded first in the state Prep B tourney and will host a semifinal contest in that competition on October 26. In the view of PDS head coach Pat Trombetta, battling Pennington is exactly what his team needed to get ready for the challenges ahead. “Coming in, we were treating this like a tournament ga m e,” s aid Tromb et ta. This is a good test for the tournaments coming up. We knew we were going to get a big crowd for this game and the atmosphere under the lights. This is the type of game that you want to play in to prepare yourself for the tournament and these girls stepped up big.” PDS stepped up at the defensive end, accomplishing the rare feat of holding the high-powered Red Raiders scoreless. “The defense was great overall,” said Trombetta. “Maddie Coyne had a heck of a game, she organized the back, she was all over the field. Grace made a couple of big saves. I used Madison McCaw all over the field in different matchups and she stepped up to the plate and had a real special game today as well. Overall everybody I put in the game busted it; we are proud of the efforts today.” There were some heartstopping moments for PDS early in the second overtime as Pennington generated some scoring chances, one of which was cleared off the line by Coyne. “It was a little scary, we had girls out there who had played the entire 100 minutes and you could see we were getting a little gassed at the end,” recalled Trombetta. “It was our first overtime game of the season so they were tested for the first time in overtime. We bent a little

bit but we didn’t break and we got the job done in the long run.” Trombetta likes the way Atkeson is taking care of her business. “As far as a leader on the field, you can’t ask for any more from her,” said Trombetta. “Her work ethic is second to none. She did a lot of good things for us on the field plus her leadership as captain. It is great to have her.” The Panthers have been working well together as they have rolled through the regular season without a defeat. “Looking at this team, they are really tight, chemistry-wise it is great,” said Trombetta, whose squad topped Bordentow n 6 - 0 last Saturday to improved to 13-0-1. “We have a great senior group that has been down the road before, going deep into tournaments and the MCT and the preps; that spills over to the younger players. They are good mentors to the younger players to prepare them to play in the big time experience like tonight.” With PDS having won the 2013 MCT crown and two straight state Prep B titles, Trombetta believes the team is poised for another deep postseason run. “It is definitely a step forward knowing that we can play with another undefeated team in the county,” said Trombetta. “Tournament time is here. We got a tough road to the finals; we know what is in front of us but today shows that we can play with anybody so we are confident going in. I think the bottom line is we have got to start finding the net a little more in these big games. Defensively, we can play with anybody but offensively, we have to execute a little better in the final third.” In Atkeson’s v iew, the Panthers can execute with anyone if they remain composed. “We need to keep our heads cool,” said Atkeson. “It was good tonight, there was a big crowd. It was their senior night and we were still able to keep our heads. I know that we can do it going into tournament time.” —Bill Alden

WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY OAK? With Pepper de Turo WOODWINDS ASSOCIATES
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 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 in 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 Sources: Ann Brooks Gould, Ph.D., Plant Pathology R.J. Buckley, Rutgers Plant Diagnostic Laboratory Enjoy yourself!

Michael Danielson Princeton University political scientist Michael Danielson, who helped modernize the study of local government in the United States and abroad, died September 22, 2016 in Princeton. He was 82 years old. D a n i e l s o n , t h e B .C . Forbes Professor of Public Affairs, Emeritus, and professor of politics and public affairs, emeritus, joined the Princeton faculty in 1962 and transferred to emeritus status in 2005. Born in New York City, Danielson received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Rutgers University and his PhD from Princeton. From 1956 to 1959, he served as an intelligence officer in the U.S. Air Force. Danielson’s scholarship focused on urban policy and planning, with a particular interest in the politics of economic development. He also served the University as chair of the department of politics and associate dean of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, among many other posts. Danielson’s best-known book, The Politics of Exclusion (1976), set the stage for analysis of the growing distinctions between cities and suburbs, said Paul Lewis, who earned his PhD from Princeton in 1994 and is now associate professor in the School of Politics and Global Studies at Arizona State University. “The Politics of Exclusion was a thorough examination of the problem of the ‘exclusionary zoning’ of suburbia, through which many suburbs were able to remain exclusive upper- and m iddle -income enclaves in an era when the urban poor, par ticularly racial minorities, were seeking residential opportunities outside of segregated innercity areas,” Lewis said. In all, Danielson wrote 11 books, including Home Team: Professional Sports and the American Metropolis and Profit and Politics in Paradise: The Development of Hilton Head Island. He also wrote about growth in modern Turkey, regional development in New York and urban transportation. Home Team, a critical examination of the relationship between cities and pro sports teams, helped launch a popular course Danielson taught in the latter part of his Princeton career on the political economy of sports. Danielson, whose interest in sports went beyond his
scholarship, brought famed sports announcer Howard Cosell to campus in 1992 to lecture on “Public Policy and Sports in American Life.” Former colleague Henr y Bienen, later president of Northwestern University, recalled sharing many trips with Danielson to Princeton basketball games. With Lewis, Danielson shared a love for the long-suffering New York Mets. Danielson was in high demand as an adviser for undergraduates’ senior theses, Lewis said. “For years, Mike had a highly coveted corner office on the top floor of Robertson Hall, where students could sit on a comfortable sofa and take in a scenic vista of the campus while getting detailed advice on their papers or career options — and maybe even bor row ing a book from the extensive collection in Mike’s office,” Lewis said. Danielson is survived by his wife, Linda Danielson; d au g hter, Je s s ic a Da n ielson; sons, Jeffrey and Matthew Danielson; sister, Holly Clevely; and brother, Peter Danielson. Memorial donations may be made to HomeFront or the D&R Greenway Land Trust. A memorial service was held earlier this month. Written by Michael Hotchkiss
Kathleen Elizabeth Corson Kathleen Elizabeth Corson, 26, formerly of Port Jefferson, N.Y., died Aug. 18, 2016.

Venkatesan Perry Venkatesan Swaminatha Perry died peacefully in his sleep at his long-time home in Princeton on Saturday, October 15. He was an accomplished researcher and scientist, a devoted and loving family man, and a kind and generous friend to the many people whose lives he touched. His ebullient personality drew out the best qualities of each person he met. He was 84 and lived a rich and varied life. As a young man, he went from studying by kerosene lamp while growing up as a teenager in rural India, to helping develop the fuel-cell system that put the first man on the moon while he was also working on his doctorate at Columbia University. Born in Govindarajapuram, a small village in Palghat, India, on April 28, 1932, he was the first child of Swaminathan and Thangammal Peruvemba. From humble beginnings in Palghat, he studied in the small local public schools and graduated with a Bachelor of Physics in 1952 from the Government Victoria College. Over the next four years, he completed his Bachelor of Engineering in metallurgy at Banaras Hindu University, where he was awarded a Gold Medal for outstanding academic achievement. He also played soccer and cricket while in school. A f ter g raduat ing f rom Banaras, he worked for a year for Hindustan Steel in Rourkela, India, and was then sent to U.S. Steel in Pittsburgh for training. Fascinated by the opportunities in the United States, he decided to stay. He continued his education, earning a Masters degree from New York University and a PhD from Columbia. Dr. Perry held several research and scientist roles over the years at Western Electr ic, G eneral Cable, and Bell Communications Research. He was a pioneer in optical fiber and fuel cell technologies, with several patents to his credit. He was also an avid skier and tennis player, and his infectious enthusiasm for both activities helped introduce many others to his two favorite sports. Family was extremely important to Dr. Perry and he was very generous in helping his relatives both in the U.S. and India. He was instrumental in bringing his three brothers to the U.S. and getting them settled in their lives. He was truly a friend to his siblings and a father figure to their children. His brothers Seshan and his wife, Lalitha; Balu and his wife, Radha; and Natarajan and his wife, Sudha; all live in the U.S. His only sister, Kamakshi, passed away in 2014.
In 1991, after a lengthy and romantic courtship, he married Elizabeth Stuyvesant Pyne in a ceremony on the island of Kauai surrounded by family. They were steadfast bridge partners and great friends, and enjoyed traveling together, with India and Brazil being two of their favorite destinations. Dr. Perry was much loved by his wife’s three sons, Russell, Lawrence, and John, to whom he quickly became a trusted friend and father figure. His stepsons will never forget how “P.V.”, as they called him as young boys, could seamlessly transition from a fellow backyard Wiffle Ball fanatic to a skilled teacher helping them master their nightly studies, particularly in math and the sciences. When his three stepsons started raising families of their own, Dr. Perry embraced the role of grandfather and was adored by his 10 grandchildren. He was a devoted husband who lovingly cared for his wife in her later years. Mrs. Perry passed away at their home in 2015 with Dr. Perry by her side. He is survived by his three brothers and their families and his three stepsons and their families. A celebration of Dr. Perry’s life will be held in the coming months in Princeton. His ashes will be scattered at his Princeton home, at his wife’s ancestral churchyard in Garrison, N.Y., and in the Ganges River in India.
Phyllis Bergquist Billington Phyllis Bergquist Billington died peacefully at the age of 88 in Los Angeles, California of congestive heart failure. Born in Chicago, Illinois to John and Gerda Bergquist, she lived most of her adult life in Princeton, before moving to California in 2013. Phyllis was the beloved wife for 65 years of David P. Billington ; the loving mother of David, Jr.; Elizabeth (Donald); Jane (Johnson); Philip (Ninik), Stephen (Miriam); and Sarah (Peter); and the proud grandmother of Zoë, Timothy, Susannah, Lucy, Francesca, Rachel, Roy, Daisy, Anna, Clara, and Bram. She was also dearly loved by many inlaws, cousins, nieces, and nephews from the Bergquist and Billington families, and friends from childhood on. Phyllis was preceded in death by her parents, and by her brothers Howard and Roy, and her sisters Beatrice and Janet. Phyllis was a musician all her life. She began playing the piano at an early age, studying first with Theodora Sturkow Ryder. She was the outstanding graduate of Chicago’s Nicholas Senn High School in winter 1945, elected to the National Honor Society and the editor-in-chief of the school newspaper.
Majoring in philosophy and music, she graduated from Nor t hwester n Universit y in 1949, Phi Beta Kappa, and outstanding graduate of the College of Liberal Arts. Phyllis wrote for many Northwestern publications, and she was a member of the Gamma Phi Beta Sorority. While still in college, she began modeling, appearing in local and national publications, and winning the 1948 New York Heart Fund Dream Girl competition. Af ter graduation she moved to New York City to study piano with Dora Zaslavsky at the Manhattan School of Music. She also continued modeling, with the John Robert Powers Agency, and graced the covers of McCall’s, Colliers, Look Magazine, The Ladies Home Jour nal, and The American Magazine, among others. In 1950 Phyllis received a Fulbright Scholarship to study both piano and harpsichord at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, Belgium. Fellow Fulbright Scholar David fell in love with Phyllis at first sight, and they were married in Chicago in 1951. Before settling in New Jersey, Phyllis and David spent their first year of marriage in Ghent, Belgium, continuing their piano and engineering studies. They lived in Glen Ridge, New Jersey from 1952 to 1960. Phyllis’s life in Princeton was filled with music and her six children. She co-founded the University League Piano Group and was an active member of the Music Club of Princeton. She appeared in recital at Princeton University for the Friends of Music, in concerts at the Trenton State Museum, and overseas in performances in Belgium and Switzerland. Her “Illustrated Performances,” lecture recitals on classical composers, took her to audiences in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York. She shared her passion for piano music, her sensitivity, and her scholarship with the Princeton Adult School, college concert series, libraries, retirement communities, community groups, and fellow music lovers, including her family. Her piano studio nurtured countless children and adults for over 60 years, introducing them to the expressive power and emotional fulfillment of music; and she was deeply enriched by continuing her own studies with Karl Ulrich Schnabel in New York City from 1977 to 2001.
Phyllis appreciated the many opportunities she and David had to travel, especially in Europe — opportunities to gather material and background for her lecture recitals, to meet cousins in Sweden, to visit with old friends, to experience other cultures and histories. She shared her memor ies of these trips, of her early life, of her family life and ancestry, and of her experience as a piano teacher and student herself in written memoirs, detailed photo albums, and scrapbooks. Although music was the guiding force in her interior life, she cherished her training in philosophy. “I never could have gotten through life without it,” she wrote. “Philosophy taught me to analyze, to see what was important, to keep my mind open but not be afraid of convictions.” Among the last words she spoke testify to her conviction that music was the expression of the love and emotion in her life: listening to a beloved Schubert sonata, she said, “pour your heart into it!” Phyllis was a devoted member of Christ Episcopal Church, Glen Ridge, and Trinity Church, Princeton. A s e r v i c e i n Phyl l i s’s memory will be held at Trinity Church on Wednesday, December 28th, 2016 at 2 p.m., followed by a reception in the Trinity Church Hall. Memorial donations may be made to Trinity Church, 33 Mercer Road, Princeton, NJ 08540 and to the Music Club of Princeton Scholarship Fund, c/o J. Rogers Woolston, 229 Walnut Lane, Princeton, NJ 085403459. Continued on Next Page

Patricia Ann Connors Patricia Ann Connors died peacefully in her sleep on September 13, 2016. She was an early feminist, an adventurous traveler, an elegant dresser, a fabulous cook, a tireless advocate for social justice, and a generous and patient mother, who taught her three children the importance of a robust sense of humor to meet life’s absurdities. She will be missed by everyone who knew her. Born in New York City in 1933, Patricia, or Pat as she was known, was a both a product of her age and also demonstrated a fierce resistance to the norms that circumscribed women’s lives. Pat was a nationally ranked tennis player in her youth, and played in the U.S. Tennis Championships at Forest Hills at a teenager. Instead of continuing her tennis career, Pat attended the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, where, her children were recently surprised to learn,
she had also been the president of her sorority. She was that kind of girl. Upon graduation, she received her first professional job as a reporter for the Newark News, where she was assigned the “Society News” and “Women’s” column — because, this being the 1940s, those were the only jobs open to highly educated female journalists. Her children suspect this was the origin of her lifelong commitment to the women’s equal rights movement. At her next job, at the New York World Telegram and Sun, she covered politics — an interest she cultivated in both her professional and personal life. She met and married her future ex-husband while working on the paper, and moved to Philadelphia, put her husband through medical school, started a family, all while commuting to Manhattan to work as a senior researcher for the New York State Democratic Committee. Throughout the 1970s and 80s, Pat combined her personal commitment to social justice as an early campaigner for the Equal Rights Amendment (she remembers the state of Florida as being particularly unreceptive to the idea) and in Princeton, where she relocated with her family in 1975. She later became an active member of the Princeton Women’s Action Group, with whom she made several trips to Nicaragua and Cuba in the 1980s. Pat earned an MA in organizational psycholog y from Columbia University and then returned to

Survived by four daughters, Elaine Glinka of Mesa, Ariz.; Charlotte Glinka, of Boston, Mass.; Diane Glinka of Dunstable, Mass.; and Sarah Glinka E nd icot t of A n n A rb or,
Mich.; and their families. Also survived by six grandchildren and five greatgrandchildren. Matty was a World War II veteran, having served in the Army with the invasionary forces at Normandy and in the European Theatre. He courageously battled polio in his 30‘s and never needed a wheelchair until his late 90‘s. One of his biggest joys was staying in touch with countless C ot t a g e C l u b m e m b e r s throughout the years. Matty enjoyed deep-sea fishing, refurbishing antique trunks, recounting his military experiences, and telling a good joke. In lieu of f lowers, friends may wish to contribute in Matty’s memory to a veterans’ organization or charity of their choice. Condolences at www.sullivanfuneralhome.net. Services will be private.
Stuart Allen Altmann Stuart Allen Altmann, age 86, passed away in Princeton, New Jersey on October 13, 2016 from complications of Alzheimer’s disease. He was born in St. Louis, Missouri and grew up in Los Angeles, California. He was both a scientist and an artist, working as a field biologist for his professional life and pursuing ceramics expertly as an avocation. He earned degrees from UCLA and Harvard University, launching his lifelong studies of primate behavior. W hat set Altmann apar t from his peers was his ability to frame problems conceptually, use mathematical models to make strong predictions, and then draw on his natural history insights and systematic observations to test them. In the summer of 1958, he met his future wife Jeanne when they were both working for the NIH, and they married in 1959. He was a professor at the University of Alberta, Yerkes National P r i m ate Re s e a r ch C e n ter, University of Chicago, and Princeton University.
In 1963–1964, Stuart and Jeanne Altmann made their first trip to Amboseli, Kenya, to study the baboons that would later become the subject of one of the world’s best-known long-term field studies of primates. Stuart and Jeanne were fortunate to spend decades working together in a rich, intellectual partnership. Stuart approached his avocations with a passion and an attention to detail. He got equal pleasure from designing a home as from baking muffins to share with family and friends. He started an apple orchard on the family property in West Virginia, chronicling the taste and productivity of dozens of varieties and making gallons of cider. Stuart’s aesthetic sense was strong and true, imbuing all his artistic pursuits with grace and style. Throughout his life Stuart loved sculpture and ceramics. He insisted that art be functional and yet also cared deeply about the aesthetics of design and form. He loved throwing pots and continually honed his skills and learned new techniques. With his camera and artistic eye, he captured beautiful moments in the lives of each of his grandchildren, whom he enjoyed immensely. Listening to music and singing brought Stuart great pleasure, even in his last days. He loved a wide range of music from Bach to Coltrane, the deep melodious voice of Paul Robeson, and the drums of West Africa. He was a captivating storyteller — stories of his adventures in the woods and travels around the world, and beloved bedtime stories for his children and grandchildren. He will be sadly and deeply missed by Jeanne, his wife of 57 years; his son Michael Altmann of Minneapolis, Minnesota ; his daughter Rachel Altmann of Portland, Oregon; grandchildren Elliot, Alice, and Benjamin; sister Ruth Nebron of Van Nuys, California; sister-inlaw Grace Lynch and brother-in-law Tom Lynch of Rock Cave West Virginia; and many friends, co-workers, and associates. A memorial service will be held at 5 p.m. Thursday, October 20th in the Atrium at Guyot Hall, Princeton University. In lieu of flowers please donate to the Fanconia Anemia Research Fund (http:// fanconi.org) or the Penland School of Crafts (www.penland.org).

HOMEOWNER'S INSURANCE: DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH? Homeowner’s insurance is your safety net in case of unexpected accidents, natural disasters and other losses. Basic homeowner’s policies provide just what the name implies - basic coverage, including losses related to some natural disasters like fire, wind and hail, theft, personal property damage or loss, and losses that occur as a result of injuries that occur on your property. But as great as basic homeowner’s coverage can be, it still usually does not offer enough coverage for most homeowners’ needs. Here are three types of additional coverage you might want to consider: - Flood damage - even if your home isn’t near a stream, lake or other body of water - Additional coverage (or “riders”) for valuables like jewelry, antiques, artwork or firearms items which typically are not fully covered by basic policies - Umbrella coverage, additional broad coverage that has a much higher limit than basic policies and can provide vital protection especially in the event of an accident or injury on your property If you have a home business, you also probably need additional insurance. The good news is, additional coverage can be surprisingly affordable. If you haven’t reviewed your policy lately, make it a priority - it takes just a few minutes and it can make a huge difference in your financial security.
