Math Team Competes 
In Its First Meets 

Coached by Mr. David Ayman, the 
A-men of Tilden’s Math Team held 
their first Interscholastic Mathematics 
League competition November 8, 1963. 
A second meet was held November 
15. The team was joined at both 
events by Erasmus Hall and Yeshiva 
University High Schools, also mem¬ 
bers of the twenty-eight high school 
city league. Scores are not yet avail¬ 
able because of irregularities in the 
contest problems. 

Five team members are in compe¬ 
tition at any one time. Each is given 
six questions, two at a time, to an¬ 
swer in a specified period. One point 
is earned for each correct answer. At 
the end of the five meets held each 
term, the team with the most points 
wins a trophy. 

David Cohen and Stanley Nissen 
are the co-captains and high scorers 
of this term’s Math Team. Other 
members are Andrew Auerbach, Leon 
Bernstein, David Gorelick, Calvin 
Konner, and Stuart Silverberg. The 
regular team and,a junior team, being 
trained for next year, meet daily dur¬ 
ing the 8th period in Room 322. 

Tilden Forum Plans 
Wide-Range Activity 

“To stimulate an interest in current 
affairs therefore to create a better 
informed student body and more in¬ 
telligent future voters,” is the pur¬ 
pose of the Tilden Forum as stated 
in its Constitution. 

The guest speakers have been Mr. 
James Monsonis of the Student Non- 
Violent Coordinating Committee and 
Mr. Jean Adra who spoke about ten¬ 
sions between Jews and Arabs in the 
Middle East. Other recent Forum 
meetings have been about American 
foreign policy in South Vietnam, the 
U.S.-Soviet Wheat Deal, the Nuclear 
Test Ban Treaty, and censorship of 
mass media. 

ACLU Speaker Planned 

Plans for future Forum meetings 
include a speaker from the American 
Civil Liberties Union, with the film 
“Operation Abolition.” This film, 
made by the House Committee on Un- 
american Activities, will be used as 
an object of discussion and criticism. 

A speaker from National Review 
Magazine, a politically conservative 
magazine, has been invited. The topic 
of discussion will be the conservative 
point of view in national affairs. Also 
tentatively planned is a speaker from 
the Henry George School of Social 

All Students Welcome 

Officers of the Forum are Robert 
Braun, President; David Gorelick, 
Vice-President; and Richard Nadler, 
Recording Secretary. The faculty ad¬ 
viser is Mr. Murray Meiselman of the 
Social Studies Department. 

Sponsored by the Social Studies De¬ 
partment, the Tilden Forum is open 
to all G.O. members. The meetings are 
held during the long official period on 
Wednesday afternoons in room 238. 

Concerts oiven 

Featuring the cantata, or¬ 
chestra, mixed chorus, and 
band, a Music Department con¬ 
cert entertained four assemblies 
Friday, December 6, and 
Wednesday, December 11. 

The cantata, directed by Mr. 
A. M. Jacobs, began the pro¬ 
gram with a three-piece reper¬ 
toire including “The Song of the 
Happy Heart,” “Kum Ba Yah” 
(Come By My Lord, a spiritual) 
and “Shalom,” from “Milk and 
Honey.” Mr. Alfred Weil con¬ 
ducted the orchestra’s selections 
from “My Fair Lady.” 

The mixed chorus, also direct¬ 
ed by Mr. Jacobs, presented 
“Grant Us Thy Salvation,” 
“Honor, Honor” (a spiritual) 
and Joseph Haydn’s “Kyrie 
Eleison” (Imperial Mass). As 
a conclusion, Mr. Arthur 
Stracher directed the band 
playing “Night on Bald Moun¬ 
tain” and “Processional.” 

Memorial Assembly 
Hails L ate Pr esident 

Memorial services for the late Pres¬ 
ident John F. Kennedy were conduct¬ 
ed November 27 in the Tilden Audi¬ 

Following the singing of the Na¬ 
tional Anthem and introductory re¬ 
marks by Dr. Berlin, “Old Glory: 
New Glory,” a poem by Mrs. Adele 
Fisch of the English Department, 
which appears on Page 2 of this 
paper, was read by Jerry Teahan, 
7W. Michael Goldberg, 71K, recited 
“For Whom The Bell Tolls” by John 
Deane. Next was the singing of 
“Kyrie Eleison” (God Grant Us Sal¬ 
vation) by the Mixed Chorus under 
the direction of Mr. Milton Jacobs. 

This was followed by the eulogy 
for President Kennedy, delivered by 
Principal Abraham Margolies. It end¬ 
ed with the advice, “And resolve to so 
dedicate yourselves to the democratic 
ideals he stood for, that future gen¬ 
erations, living in a peaceful and bet¬ 
ter world, will say, ‘He did not die in 

Senior, $lass Triumphs 
In Eleven th An nual Sing 

Junior Jackpot Places Second; 
Soph Historians Come In Third 

For the eleventh consecutive year, Tilden’s Sing was 
marked by senior victory. “Look Homeward Seniors” 
scored 765 points. Second place was achieved by the jun¬ 
ior production, “Junior Jackpot,” which scored 688 points. 
The sophomores placed third, getting 628 points for “Soph 

The formal production of Sing was presented Friday, December 13 and 
Saturday, December 14. Tickets were also available for the dress rehearsal, 
held Thursday, December 12. 

“Look Homeward Seniors” was directed by Sing Leader Sandra Brauzer 
and Choral Leader Marian Schulman; Stuart Brink was pianist for his class. 
In their performance, the seniors tried to prove that New York City is the 
best place in which to live, or “the grass is greener in your own backyard.” 

Heading Junior Sing were Iris Feinstein as Sing Leader, and Choral 
Leader Harriet Seidner, while David Posner was pianist. “Junior Jackpot” 
showed the futility of trying to find an easy way to success. Overnight in 
Las Vegas, the characters devise a system to achieve their goal, but ulti¬ 
mately it fails. 

Seniors (1 to r) Janet Fishman, Gerry Berman, and Linda Rose appear 
in the beatnik scene from “Look Homeward Seniors.” 

Joseph Abate, Sing Leader, and Estelle Levy, Choral Leader, along with 

Stephanie Aiges, pianist, coordinated “Soph Historians.” The production 
concerned itself with a mural to beautify the school. 

Eight judges, chosen from among the faculty and former co-commission¬ 
ers, each distributed up to 100 points for , each class contestant, while two 
faculty advisors were able to award 25 points apiece. The scoring was appor¬ 
tioned with a maximum of ten points in each of the following categories: 
script, lyrics, music, scenery, costumes, choreography, over-all-effect, and 
clarity of diction. Five points were the most that could be designated for 
originality, and fifteen the most for spirit. 

Of the eight judges, the four attending Friday night were Miss Rebecca 
Grand, Mrs. Edith Cohen, Mr. Joel Dick, and Mr. Everett Kerner, while 

^ those for Saturday were Mr. Anatole 
Epstein, Mr. David Goldfarb, and two 
co-commissioners from last year, Miss 
Phyllis Lubel and Miss Irys Lucash. 
Mr. Abraham Margolies was the Hon¬ 
orary Chief Judge. 

This year, there was a small Sing 
registration in comparison to previ¬ 
ous years. According to Mr. Alfred 

Home Economics Department Donates 
Gifts to Infants' Home of Brooklyn 

In order to brighten the holiday season for needy children, the Home 
Economics Department has sponsored a project to provide gifts and Christ¬ 
mas “goodies” for the children of the Infants’ Home of Brooklyn. Through 
this activity, the students involved showed that a gift is the giving of a 
part of one’s self. 

This project was conducted by the Child Care, Foods, and Clothing 
classes, which combined parts of their curricula into the program as an 
application of some of their learning. For example, in the Child Care classes, 
the girls were asked to create playthings which encompassed desirable 
features for the age group up to six. 

Among the presents that the children received Monday, December 16, 
were dolls, puppets and original storybooks. The making of these gifts was 
useful to students in the Child Care classes since it involved problems in 
the physical and emotional growth of children. For the girls in the Clothing 
classes, it was practice in sewing for younger members of the family. 

In the main, the type of “goodies” prepared by the Food classes was 
holiday cookies which were specially packaged so that each child would 
receive an interesting and attractive selection. 

Co-commissioners of this project were Joanne Fishman, ,80A, and 
Rochell.e Keen, 8H. In charge of transporting the gifts to the Home were 
Arleigh West, 70G, and Fran Regina, M51. 

Student Body Polled for Choice of Play; 
Able to Pick from Three Broadway Shows 

In order to assist the Tilden Drama Guild and its faculty advisor, Mr. 
Joel Dick, in selecting a spring play that will be popular with the student 
body, it was decided to conduct a poll in all English and speech classes in 
which students were able to vote for either Arsenic and Old Lace, George 
Washington Slept Here, or You CarCt Take It With You. 

This poll was taken during the week of December 9th. Although there 
will also be other bases for choosing the play, the results of the poll will be 

^given serious consideration. 

Arsenic and Old Lace, by Joseph 
Kesselring, is about two kind old 


ladies who have a habit of 
old men to put them out of their 
“misery.” Also important are thei* 
two nephews, Mortimer and Jonathafi 
(in the movie version, played by Cai?y 
Grant and Raymond Massey, respec¬ 
tively) . 

The George S. Kaufman-Moss Hart 
play, George Washington Slept Here, 
tells what happens when Newton Ful¬ 
ler buys the house of his dreams, a 
house in the country. This house, 
which is nearly 200 years old, has 
everything a person could want—ex¬ 
cept running water, heat, electricity. 

You Can f t Take It With YoUy also 
by George S. Kaufman and Moss 
Hart, concerns a delightfully mad 
family. The Sycamores keep snakes in 
their house and make firecrackers in 
their basement. Amidst all this, two 
young people fall in love and then 
the “sparks start to fly.” 

Choreographers Phil Asher and 
Carolyn Grote help lead the seniors 
to victory. 

Weil, faculty advisor, this is “Pos¬ 

sibly because of the many demands 
made on the time of our students, 
particularly in their Junior year.” 

In 1953 the students themselves de¬ 
cided that they wanted to have an 
annual Sing. Mr. Weil said, “Perhaps 
Tt is nqw time to take a long look at 
the status of Sing in the extra-cur¬ 
ricular life of the school.

December 19, 1963 


In Memorium 

On November 22, 1963, a most dastardly and despicable act resulted in 
the death of the President of the United States. A man that we loved, hon¬ 
ored, and respected was struck down by an assassin’s bullet. 

John Fitzgerald Kennedy will not be remembered as a Democrat, or a 
Republican, but as an American. He was the personification of the youth¬ 
fulness and vigor of the New Frontier. The first family was everyone’s 
family, and “Jack” was everyone’s father, son, or brother. The story of his 
life has become another “Profile in Courage.” 

We are all part of the “new generation of Americans . . . unwilling to 
witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this 
nation has always been committed,” and which Mr. Kennedy tried to uphold 
so well. We must all accept certain responsibilities and duties in order to 
strengthen the minds and bodies of America. In this field, at least, we must 
act and act now. “There is no ‘crash’ program that can do the job. The 
structure of American education must be painstakingly rebuilt from the 
bottom up.” Let us now be reminded of these desires of a man who did so 
much to obtain a full and equal education for all, and let us do our part in 
fulfilling them. It is within our power to see that “schools no longer produce 
mathematical illiterates or students who can identify all the wives of Henry 
the Eighth, but not the countries bordering Afganistan—or scholars whose 
education has been so specialized as to exclude them from participation in 
current events.” 

We can honor the memory of President Kennedy by devoting ourselves 
to becoming well informed and well* 
educated citizens of these United 
States. The time has come for us to 
re-dedicate ourselves to the America 
he loved so much, and the America 
for which he died. 

Letter t o the Editor 

Dear Editor, 

In this day and age, the possibility 
of atomic war has become more than 
just a fantasy. The strongest nations 
now have weapons more powerful 
than those used in Hiroshima and 
Nagasaki. The Board of Education 
requires shelter drills to give us the 
needed practice in the event of an 

Our shelter drills have been called 
distracting. Can we criticize drills 
which may someday save our lives? 
I hope all Tildenites do not feel as 
your Editorial Board does.

Dean Lefton’s Talks 
Aim At Pupil Woes 

Kf:®: | ' | 

Dean Lef Ion uses new techniques 
on “reformed character.” 

“If you stay out of trouble for a 
month, I’ll treat you to an ice cream 
soda.” This tasty reward was offered 
by Tilden’s new A.M. session dean, 
Mr. Phillip Lefton, to a “reformed 
character” who is leaving the school 
in a month. 

Tildenites Rated Highly 

Although it is student problems that 
keep him busy, Mr. Lefton maintains 
that, behavior-wise, Tilden students 
deserve “a very high rating. It is 
only the few exceptions that cause 

Mr. Lefton wishes that more pupils 
would come to talk with him before 
they get into trouble. Then he would 
be able to devote more time to a 
more pleasant, but little known side 
of “deaning,” which is giving credit 
to those students who have been out¬ 
standingly good. 

Mrs. Betts Found Indispensable 

As part of his job, Mr. Lefton 
works very closely with the guidance 
department and his associate Mrs. 
Mary Betts. “Without her help,” he 
says, “this job would be impossible.” 

As to what’s the next step up the 
school ladder for him, Mr. Lefton just 
smiles and replies, “I’m happy here.” 

Tale of Two Cities: 
London & Stockroom 

Are you looking for a paper 
stretcher? Need a left-handed pair of 
scissors or a Hebrew notebook open¬ 
ing left to right? These are a few 
unusual requests that have been pre¬ 
sented to Mr. Max London and his 
student assistants in charge of Til¬ 
den’s supplies. 

276,000 Delaney Cards Yearly 

The stockroom on the first floor is 
one of three such rooms in Tilden. 
It resembles a large walk-in closet, 
and houses numerous items used daily 
by people who never realize their 

Few people are aware that when 
they use a paper clip, they are han¬ 
dling one of 80,000 identical items 
distributed yearly. The next time you 
throw away an unused piece of com¬ 
position paper, remember that ap¬ 
proximately 2,000 reams of paper 
leave the stockrocfhi each year, cour¬ 
tesy of the Board of Education. Isn’t 
this a ghastly thought—276,000 De¬ 
laney cards are waiting to be filled in. 

Who’s Got the Board Eraser? 

When asked what supplies he most 
often gets requests for, Mr. Max Lon¬ 
don answered, “Board erasers. They 
seem to disappear.” He blamed this on 
the students’ voracious appetites. 

Besides the ordinary supplies, there 
are more obscure items to be found. 
“Poison” is the label on various white 
cans that line the stockroom walls. No, 
this is not to be swallowed in case 
of Regents failure! It is a toxic fluid 
that is used in Tilden’s duplicating 

Items that are not for distribution, 
but are hidden in the nooks and cran¬ 
nies of the room, include a “Combina¬ 
tion Game” and a “Magic Slate.” 
Wait a minute. How did these get in 

Community's Oldest Homestead 
Faces Destruction by Progress 

“I look at the house, the poor old house, the house with nobody in it.’ 

—Joyce Kilmer 

Old Glory: New Glory 

Mrs. Adele Fisch of the English Department composed this 
Shakespearean sonnet for the Memorial Assembly Program 
held on November 27 for the late President John F. Kennedy. 

It was Friday, the day the flag came down. 

Our room is 314, the third floor end 

Jutting into the garden; the building’s H-bound; 

Period nine, it was; we saw it descend. 

An eagle fallen, the light in the east gone low, 

A riderless horse, a rudderless ship—all these 
And every symbol in the store we know, 

Not bitter gall enough for these brack lees. 

And this the lesson when the flag came down; 
That every heart within that room rose up, 

As in a new-plowed field the furrows mound, 

So hearts fresh-furrowed rose a star to cup. 

The flag came down. But in that half-mast flight 
There was a glory to outlast the night. 

Hunched behind an unctuous filling station, its sweeping profile en¬ 
cumbered by noxious, allergenic foliage and in a state of dereliction, the 
city’s oldest homestead may become prey for a faction of manipulating, 
indifferent, and ultimately unsentimental engineers. 

Pieter Clasessen Wijkoff, journeying to America from Holland in 1637, 
brought with him the wooden pegs with which the oak shingles and rafters 
are made fast. The Dutch door, its top and bottom halves each swinging in¬ 
dependently, originally provided protection from any insurgent livestock. It 
later was employed as a means of neighborly conversation, a practice con¬ 
tinued throughout the ages. 

Wijkoff, Twiller, Stuyvesant Part of Houses’s History 
The property had been purchased by Pieter Wijkoff from the Canarsie 
Indians, but the dwelling was erected about 1640 by Governor Wouter Van 
Twiller. Situated disadvantageous^^ — 
at the intersection of Ralph Avenue 
and Clarendon Road, two main tho¬ 
roughfares, the Wyckoff abode is the 
inevitable target of many a rambling 
litterer. The original home was ap¬ 
proximately three-fifths its present 
depth, having been inhabited by Wij¬ 
koff for forty-four years. 

Ten years ago, the Highway De¬ 
partment formed tentative plans for 
the extension of Ditmas Avenue, 
therefore amputating a wing of the 
already overly-neglected historical 
site. Although progress must not 
cease, it is the general public senti¬ 
ment that advancement is the result 
of heritage. 

CSC Saving House 
Favoring a compromise concerning 
the establishment of a museum in 
memory of this inheritance is the 
Wyckoff House Foundation, organized 
in 1950. Interest in the preservation 
of a recall of the founding of our na¬ 
tion is encountered in such a distant 
area as Fordham Park, New Jersey, 
where Mrs. Colin Durham, secretary 
of the Foundation, resides. 

Mr. Anatole Epstein, faculty adviser 
of the Community Service Club, ex¬ 
pressed his thoughts on the issue with 
the exhortation, “Let us preserve in 
this asphalt jungle a fragment of our 
heritage where we might reflect and 
be reminded of our glorious past.”

Charade , starring Cary Grant and 
Audrey Hepburn, will make its debut 
at Radio City Music Hall this Christ¬ 
mas. This motion picture, which com¬ 
bines Alfred Hitchcock-like mystery 
and suspense with light romantic 
comedy, will prove to be one of the 
•year’s best films. 

The opening of the picture intro¬ 
duces the audience to the intrigue 
which is to follow. We are at once 
presented with a confused situation 
which startles and bewilders us. 

Mystery, Blackmail and Love 

Regina Lambert, who is played by 
Miss Hepburn, is the recent widow 
of a man whose real identity is known 
only by his murderer. Her own exist¬ 
ence is threatened by a trio of 
“shady characters” who confess to be 
after a huge sum of money left by 
Regie’s late husband. Romance enters 
in the person of Peter Joshua, alias 
Alexander Dyle, alias Adam Canfield 
who is portrayed by suave Cary 
Grant. Together, the two combat po¬ 
lice accusations and murder plots in 
an effort to solve the mystery of the 
missing cash. 

Guessing Games Galore 

The story is even further compli¬ 
cated when a member of the Ameri¬ 
can Embassy and Central Intelligence 
Agency informs Regina that Charles 
Lambert, her late husband, was want¬ 
ed by the United States Government 
for treason. Slowly but surely, the 
pieces of the puzzle unite as the re¬ 
lationships among Scobie, Gideon 
and Pentholow, a military mission, 
French resistance fighters, Nazi sol¬ 
diers and Regina Lambert are estab¬ 
lished. In the words of Universal 
Picture’s synopsis, “Exciting plot 
twist follows exciting plot twist until 
the final fadeout of the story when 
the solution of the guessing game— 
the Charade —is revealed.” 

Charade , filmed in Paris and Me- 
geve, is a magnificently produced pic¬ 
ture. Stanley Donen, the director, 
combined shots of the scenery and 
sites of France with the action of 
the story. Givenchy’s outfits and a 
musical score by Henry Mancini add 
the finishing touches on this not-to- 
be-missed motion picture. 

feuded. an,e jjO-n, 

By Susan Gitlin 

Recently, on my way home from 
school, I caught the 3:00 bus. I was 
the only one who entered the bus at 
the stop and thus, all eyes focused 
on me as I clumsily made my way 
to the first available seat. As I 
gathered my books together, I looked 
up and again noticed that the bus 
riders were very much occupied in 
their observance of a certain very 
inhibited person, me! 

The Bus Rider’s Game 

Finally settled in my seat, I de¬ 
cided to play the bus riders’ game. 
This game involves staring as in¬ 
tensely as possible at a person facing 
directly opposite you. The object is 
to place the person into a state of 
complete self-consciousness. Of course, 
you might run into some difficulty 
if you catch the stare of an inve¬ 
terate bus-riding gamester; however, 
with intense concentration this expert 
can be foiled at his own game. I find 
that those quite excellent at this sport 
are old ladies who wear glasses with 
extremely thick lenses. I really haven’t 
fathomed this phenomenon. 

Ol’ Charlie on the M.T.A. 

This bus riders’ game, which is also 
extremely effective as the train rid¬ 
ers’ game, did not last long. Alas, at 
one stop the bus driver made, a group 
(or rather gaggle) of junior high 
school students charged into the bus. 
At this point, I was pondering how 
I would be able to elbow my way 
to the bus door. I could not, in my 
farthest stretch of imagination, de¬ 
sign any means of escape. I identified 
with poor ol’ Charlie who couldn’t get 
off the M.T.A. 

A Look in the Mirror 

The bus inched (as buses invari¬ 
ably do) nearer my home and I raced 
frantically towards the door. I man¬ 
aged to exit, far from gracefully, I 
might add. I was annoyed, disgusted, 
irritated, and disgruntled. Slowly, 
very slowly, I gained my composure; 
that is, my thoughts became some¬ 
what rational. At this point, I began 
to wonder if the more jaded bus rider 
is as annoyed by the Tilden commuter 
as I was by those junior high school

TB: Causes, Effects, 
Discussed at Meeting 

To further the knowledge of tuber¬ 
culosis and other respiratory dis¬ 
eases, a meeting was held at the 
Brooklyn Tuberculosis and Health 
Association headquarters located at 
293 Schermerhorn Street, Brooklyn, 
November 11 , 1963. Present at this 
meeting was Jerry Lewis, Director of 
Neighborhood Programs, who inform¬ 
ally discussed the problems facing the 

Mr. Jerry Lewis points out TB in¬ 
formation to Steve Levine, Topics rep¬ 

The different ways that TB affects 
people was shown through a movie. 
Following the film, a question and 
answer session was conducted in 
which it was discovered that many 
beliefs concerning tuberculosis that 
were thought to be true were, in 
reality, fallacies. Tuberculosis, which 
is believed to affect only the lungs, is 
capable of spreading to other parts 
of the body as well. 

Mr. Lewis then escorted the stu¬ 
dent representatives on a tour through 
the building which included passage 
through the examination rooms, the 
rehabilitation offices, and the Christ¬ 
mas Seal headquarters. 

This meeting was held in conjunc¬ 
tion with the 27th Annual School 
Press Project made possible through 
the Columbia Scholastic Press Asso¬ 
ciation, in cooperation with the na¬ 
tional Tuberculosis Association, and 
the Brooklyn Tuberculosis and Health 

Representing Tilden at the meeting

newspapers must give coverage to

eases, or health careers.

Viewer Praises Concert 
Featuring Simo ne, Mann 

The Folk and Jazz rage has swept 
the nation. Music stores report a 
remarkable increase in the sale of gui¬ 
tars; A.B.C.’s “Hootennany” boasts a 
viewing audience of over 10 , 000 , 000 . 
Brubeck, Shearing, Kenton, and Hirt 
are jazz names well known to young 
people across the land. In short, folk 
music and jazz are “in.” 

Carnegie Hall “Wing Ding” 
Realizing this trend, the Ford Mo¬ 
tor Company has sponsored a “Folk 
And Jazz Wing Ding” that premiered 
November 1 st at Carnegie Hall at 
8:30 in the evening. Featured in 
this concert were Nina Simone, Her¬ 
bie Mann, Steve DePass, Ron Eliran, 
the Even Dozen Jug Band, and the 
Village Stompers. 

Nina Simone and Herbie Mann, no 
newcomers to the entertainment 
world, were excellent. Nina Simone, a 
warm contralto, is perhaps the best 
known of the “jazz singers.” Her ren¬ 
ditions of I Love You , Porgy and 
When You Hear Melindy Sing un¬ 
questionably captivated the attention 
of the audience. 

Mann Highlights Program 
Herbie Mann and his Afro-Cuban 
8 were the high point oYthe evening. 
Their music, rhythmic, stirring, and 
exciting, held the spectators spell¬ 
bound. -7 

Steve DePass, M.C. of the “Wing 
Ding,” with his impromptu and con¬ 

tinuous rhymes, proved extremely 
clever and quick; however, at times, 
his verse grew monotonous and dis¬ 
enchanting. “You can have too much 
of a good thing. . . .” 

A young Isreali folk singer, Ron 
Eliran, had a fresh, exciting reper¬ 
toire. The Even Dozen Jug Band, 
with its new and somewhat different 
approach to bluegrass (a polite name 
for hillbilly) music, was delightful. 
The popular Washing ton Square drew 
much applause when performed by 
the Village Stompers. 

It might be easily concluded that 
the combination of talent made for a 
very enjoyable evening. From Car¬ 
negie Hall, the “Wing Ding” travels 
to schools across the country. One 
cannot but speculate they will be well

NYU Workshop Speakers 
Address School Students 

New York University’s Department 
of Journalism held its annual work¬ 
shop November 2, 1963. Present were 
high school newspaper representatives 
who received first-hand information 
from prominent journalists. 

Various aspects of both high school 
and professional journalism were dis¬ 
cussed at the meeting. Among the 
topics discussed were news and fea¬ 
ture writing, editing, use of pictures 
and art, makeup and layout. The 
workshop was divided into two conse¬ 
cutive weekend meetings because of 
the heavy attendance at last year’s 

Beginning with a talk on news writ¬ 
ing by John Pascal, Night City 
Editor of the Journal American, the 
meeting proceeded to a discussion by 
Newsday’s Chief Copy Editor, Stan 
Green. Following a speech by Pro¬ 
fessor Hiller Krieghbaum, Chairman 
of the Department of Journalism, the 
students lunched with Irving Dilliad, 
Professor of Journalism at Princeton 
University. Professor Sidney Towne, 
editor of News Workshop, concluded 
the workshop with a speech about art 
and makeups for a newspaper. 

Lecturer Discusses School 
Journalism at HS Council 

Mr. Aaron N. Slotkin, managing 
editor of Strengthening Democracy , 
Board of Education publication, ad¬ 
dressed the High School Press Council 
at a meeting in October. The title of 
his speech was “Can the School Press 
Be Free?” 

The speaker felt that a school 
publication is not a private enterprise 
and can never be completely free, as 
is its counterpart in the community. 
Instead, it is an example of “mono¬ 
poly journalism,” for which not the 
editors, but the entire school takes 

“Of course,” Mr. Slotkin continued, 
“the amount of latitude given the 
paper varies among the individual 
school. It should, however, concern it¬ 
self with subjects relevant to school 

Ultimately, the decision of what to 
publish is the responsibility of the 
faculty advisor and the principal. 
They must consider the effect of the 
article on community sensitivity and 
the school’s reputation. 

In conclusion, Mr. Slotkin stated, 
“Freedom of the press can exist only 
when those who are exercising it can 
be held responsible for their actions. 
Some degree of press supervision is 

The High School Press Council, the 
body to which Mr. Slotkin spoke, is 
composed of high school newspaper 
editors from the Metropolitan area. 
The Press Council’s purpose is to meet 
and discuss problems related to the 
school papers. Through the exchange 
of ideas and experiences among the 
editors, it is hoped that a higher 
standard in journalism can be reached. 


Recently, in our readings, we have come across certain congruencies be¬ 
tween conditions in Tilden and Shakespearean literature. Below you will find 
several examples of these parallelisms. 

From eating tuna fish: “Thy bones are marrowless, thy blood is cold; 
thou hast no speculation in those eyes which thou dost glare with.” 

Jefferson: “There’s comfort yet; they are assailable.” 

Cafeteria food: “What, with worms and flies?” ’ 

Passing through the halls: “Disdaining fortune, with his brandished steel, 
which smoked with bloody execution, like valor’s minion carved out his 
passage till he faced the slave.” 

Drama Guild advisor Mr. Joel Dick: “Follow him friends: we’ll hear 
a play tomorrow.” 

Sew What! 

Rose Costa, 8 A, has been chosen to be Tilden’s rep¬ 
resentative to the Abraham and Strauss Fashion Sewing 
Workshop Board. She was elected by Mrs. Rita Lindquist, 

Chairman of the Home Economics Department because 
she meets the requirements of leadership and sewing 
abilities, and has above average grades and comeliness. 

High school representatives are invited to attend monthly 
meetings at Abraham and Strauss where they can learn Rose Costa, 8A 
about fashion and fabric news. This program is carried out in cooperation 
with Seventeen Magazine and McCall’s Patterns.

In cooperation with the American Association of Teachers of Hebrew, 
the Hebrew Cultural Council of the Jewish Educational Committee of New 
York held its thirty-third annual “Ayin” Festival at Washington Irving 
High School, November 10. An Ayin is a gold pin presented to those stu¬ 
dents who have excelled in the study of the Hebrew language. From Tilden, 
the winners in January 1963 were Rochelle Chensky, Joel Fried, Judy Green¬ 
berg, Calvin Konner, Thomas Link, David Posner, Carol Schwarz, Gary 
Weil, and Phyllis Yagerman. In June 1963, the recipients of the pin were 
Paul Cohen, Judith Goldberg, Rosaiyn Kolodny, Allan Page, Fred Pollack, 
Eugenia Rosenberg, Judy Tropiansky, and Barry Zelin. Thirty-eight other 
students won Honorable Mention awards.

Through the Hoop 

By Dave Glickman 

Mr. Jerry Gold, who has been coach¬ 
ing basketball at Tilden for 6 years, 
is a City College alumnus who was 
a member of the 1950 team. The 
cage mentor modestly admits that 
City had its finest basketball squad 
that season when, in addition to 
walking off with 
the N.I.T. crown, 
they also shot 
their way to the 
victory circle of 
the N.C.A.A. tour¬ 

Being a City Col¬ 
lege player and a 
former Downtown 
City College coach, 
he has gained 
much experience in 
guiding a basket¬ 
ball team. In the 
past at Tilden, he 
has coached such 
notables as Ron 
Kemper, now cap- 

Coach Jerry Gold congratu¬ 
lates newly elected basket¬ 
ball captain, Richard Knel. 

tain of Brandeis and Harold Yudis, 
the second highest scorer in the his¬ 
tory of Lycoming College. 

In 1960, Coach Gold guided his 
players to a division championship 
and brought them right down to the 
semi-finals at Madison Square Gar¬ 
den. His biggest thrill came during 
the 1960 season when his Tilden team 
defeated a top ranked Erasmus squad 
at Brooklyn College for the second 
time that year. 

The captain of this year’s basket¬ 
ball team is 6 foot, 1 inch, 195 pound 
senior Richard Knel, 7L. Richie, a 
team member for three years, was 
the only junior on last year’s starting 
five. In the off-season, he enjoys swim¬ 
ming which helps keep him in shape 
for the basketball 

Richie is looking 
forward to the 
Erasmus game, but 
he feels that there 
are no easy teams 
in the suicide divi¬ 
sion which Tilden 
is in. His biggest 
thrill occurred last 
year when he sank 
a 64 foot jump shot 
against Wingate in 
the final seconds of 
the game. 

The captain 
hopes hustle and 
team spirit will 
make up for the inexperience on this 
year’s squad. “We’ve got to rely quite 
a bit on our juniors during the course 
of the season if we are to be success¬ 
ful” is his observation. 

Richie’s past performance indicates 
he will be the team’s leading scorer 
this year. His biggest scoring day 
came against Bishop Loughlin last 
year when he pumped 42 points 
through the hoop. 

Jeff Stops Devils 

The splendor of the autumn foot¬ 
ball season ended on a sombre note 
for Tilden’s Blue Devils November 28, 
when, before an overflow crowd of 
3,500 students, parents and alumni, 
Jefferson blasted its way to an unde¬ 
feated season and a 26-0 victory. Un¬ 
fortunately, the score does not give 
any indication of what a rock ’em, 
sock ’em close affair the gridiron clas¬ 
sic developed into. The Orangemen 
did not break the game open until the 
nine minute mark of the fourth 

Lady Luck Forgot to Smile 
Lady Luck took its toll against the 
Marsmen early in the first quarter, 
with a fourth down situation facing 
them, the Nickelmen went into punt 
formation; a tremendous Blue Raider 
defensive charge caused the Jeff 
punter to fumble the high pass from 
center, and Tilden recovered deep in 
Jefferson terirtory. However, within 
seconds, the Marsmen’s joy turned to 
disappointment as they were pena¬ 
lized for having twelve players on the 
field. The penalty gave the Orange¬ 
men a first down, and they proceeded 
to tally minutes later when Barry 
Reitman scampered 45 yards to pay 

Result Dampens Season 
The loss dropped Tilden to a 3-4-1 
record for the 1963 season. It was the 
first time in seven years that the 
Blue Devils had not played .500 ball 
for a full season. It is worthwhile to 
note that Tilden played its hardest 
schedule in years. 

Paul Nussbaum 

Keglers Start Well; 
Pin Down Midwood 

Tilden’s bowling team has begun its 
1963 season hoping to duplicate last 
year’s feat of winning the division 
championship. In their opening 5 
meets of the season, the Keglers have 
compiled a 3 win-2 loss record, leav¬ 
ing them in a tie for first place with 
a host of other schools. 

Competition is Keen 

Coach Herman Ginsberg had this 
to say about the team’s performance 
during the first half of the season: 
“We had hoped to have as good a 
season as last year when we won the 
division championship. Thus far we 
have won only 3 of 5 matches and 
we will have to show marked improve¬ 
ment over our recent outings in order 
to win the title. The competition is 
very keen.” Showing optimism, co¬ 
captain Harvey Gross said, “With a 
little consistency and luck, Tilden 
may repeat as divisional charmps.” 

In the season’s opener Tilden whip¬ 
ped Midwood 3-0. In their second en¬ 
counter of the season, the Keglers 
were blanked by Madison to the tune 
of 3-0. They then trounced Eastern 
3-0 and edged Wingate 2-1 in a thrill¬ 
ing match. In the fifth meet, the 
Keglers lost to Erasmus 3-0 when an 
Erasmus bowler turned in a phenome¬ 
nal 726 series for a 3 game average 
of 242. 

Gross Paces Team 

The two co-captains of the Tilden 
team are Harvey Gross, 177 average, 
and Teddy Levine, 176 average. The 
two other starters are Martin Garey, 
171 average, and Dennis Blondo, 170 
average. Tilden’s backup comes from 
subs Ralph Lograsso, Stu Wisotsky, 
Mark Silverman, Phil Marotto, Alan 
Pirowskin, Irv Pilicer, Dennis Wilen- 
sky, Mike Gebler, Steve Rubin, and 
Jerry Hertz. Each boy attends one 
practice session a week in addition 
to the regularly scheduled meet. 



Bowling captain Teddy Levine 
threw three strikes in the final frame 
of his game to win the entire match 
for Tilden as the Keglers nosed out 
Wingate, November 15, 1963 at the 
Colony Bowl. Also helping the team 
to this victory were Harvey Gross, 
Dennis Blondo, and Marty Garey.

and Paul Nussbaum 

Jan Gottlieb 

While Tilden’s bruisers of the gridiron have been walking off with most 
of the newspaper headlines these last few months, other athletes in other 
sports have been cracking records right and left. 

In particular, your editors would like to single out Jan Gottlieb for 
special praise. Jan has been Coach Joel Hochheiser’s 
finest cross-country runner this season. Only a junior, 
he has broken all existing school records for this event, 
while placing very high in the invitational marathon 
meets at Van Cortlandt Park. Jan’s time of 13:44 is only 
20 seconds off the best school boy time clocked in New 
York City this season. If this year’s performance is any 
indication of things to come, Tilden’s protege of Mercury 
will be the top distance runner in New York City next year. 

Ya Just Gotta Have A J.V. 

For the first time in Tilden athletic history, the football team has a 
junior varsity that is coached by a member of the boy’s health education 
department. Tilden’s newest junior varsity coach is Mr. 
Wally Wolk. Mr. Wolk attended Brooklyn College and 
graduated in 1954. While at Brooklyn, he participated in 
both wrestling and football. It is his belief that this year’s 
junior varsity has progressed very well. In his own 
words, “Not only have the boys learned to put on their 
shoulder pads; they have learned to use them.” 

Mr. Wally Wolk Mr. Wolk’s statement clearly expresses the source of 
Tilden’s basic basketball woes. Year after year, coach Jerry Gold has tried 
to form a junior varsity; unfortunately, he has failed each time. The team’s 
lack of a junior varsity is debilitating. It is also the major reason for the 
dismal record that the basketball team has produced over the past few years. 

Behind Those Football Headlines . . . 

There lies within Tilden a group of four students who are very valuable 
aids to the football team. These boys are Head Manager 
and Team Photographer Harvey Quitko, Statistician Dave 
Glickman, and Managers Matty Kardovich and Alvin 
Shulman. Harvey takes game movies of all of Tilden’s 
P.S.A.L. contests. These movies are used to detect team 
weaknesses and are also viewed by college scouts who are 
interested in specific ballplayers. 

It is the vital job of the Team Managers to handle Harvey Quitko 
club equipment and medical supplies. They must give the immediate treat¬ 
ment to injured ballplayers either during practice or during the games. 

Labelson Cited at All-City Dinner 

The New York Journal-American held its annual All-City Banquet in 
the Grand Ballroom of the Hotel New Yorker, Wednesday, December 11. 
Scholastic Sports Editor Morrey Rokeach served as the Master of Ceremonies 
during the awards presentation. 

The newspaper gave engraved gold footballs to all the members of the 
1963 All-PSAL, All-City Team. While no dne from Tilden was elected to the 
first team, Guard Alan Labelson received second team recognition. Quarter¬ 
back John Giuffrida, tackle Howie Horowitz, end Madison Brown, and half¬ 
back Peter Ricciardi received honorable mention notices. 

Labelson also was awarded Tilden’s Lou Gehrig Award. This award 
is given to the football player who best exemplifies the ideals of good 
sportsmanship, effort, and desire. The Journal ' gave gold footballs to the 
Lou Gehrig winners from each of New York City’s football playing schools^ 

Goldmen Top Tech 62-28 
Surprise Middies 47-42 

EXCUSE MY HANDS: Tilden’s Mark Feit leaps high to block unidentified 
Tech player’s shot during Tilden’s 62-28 victory over Brooklyn Tech. 

Starting out on the right foot, the Goldmen ripped a feeble Brooklyn 
Tech team in its initial league appearance, 62-28. The team played so well 
that Coach Jerry Gold was able to empty his bench and give every player 
some game experience. 

Edging Midwood in its second league game, Tilden scraped to a 47-42 
victory. Since the Middies are generally regarded as one of the better teams 
in the suicide division, the game has provided the Goldmen with the hope 
of having a winning season. 

Goldmen Trounce Engineers 

Led by captains Richie Knell and Fred Kombluth, the Goldmen mauled 
Brooklyn Tech 62-28 in the division opener, Wednesday, December 4th. 

The first quarter was slow moving with the Goldmen taking a 10-5 
lead. However, at the end of the second half the Goldmen lengthened this 
lead by scoring 10 points to the Engineers ’ 4. 

A very fast moving, high scoring third quarter found the Goldmen 
out in front, 44-20. The fourth quarter ended with a two-pointer by Dennis 
Kamensky at the buzzer making it 62-28. 

The high scorers for Tilden were Richie Knell with 20 points, Mark 
Feit with 11, and Fred Kornbluth with 10. Ernest Bliey, the younger brother 
of renowned ex-Tildenite Ron Bliey, led the Engineers ’ attack with 10 points. 

Devils Upset Midwood 

Bruce Schiffman scored 18 points in the first half to lead Tilden to a 
47-42 triumph December 6th at Midwood. 

Midwood held a 4 point lead for the 
first few minutes of the game. Then, 
Mike Jaffe scored the first basket for 
the Goldmen which got them moving. 
At the end of the half, the score was 
25-21 Tilden. 

The second half was a very even 
contest. Mid wood kept creeping up 
but they weren’t able to take the lead 
because of timely buckets from Richie 
Knell, Mike Jaffe, and Ronnie Roth- 

Mermen End Season 
With a 3-3 Record 

Winding up the season with one 
victory and one defeat in their last 
two meets, the Merman placed fourth 
in the P.S.A.L* competition with a 
3-3 record. They trounced Wingate 
but suffered a setback to a strong 
Jeff team. 

Captains Spark Team 

In the Wingate meet November 6, 
the Mermen outswam their adversa¬ 
ries 72-22. Captain Tom Link placed 
first in the individual medley and 
Captain Ed Belzer stroked to a first 
place finish in the 100 yard freestyle. 
Jerry Link, the captain’s brother, 
captured the butterfly event with 
Marc Miller placing second on a 
Wingate disqualification. Once again, 
ace diver Hymie Dymbort out-dived 
his opponents. Another first place 
winner was Robert Newmark in the 
50 yard freestyle. 

Mermen Sink 

Tilden lost its third meet of the 
season to Jefferson November 13. 
While Mermen were nosed out in all 
events, good performances were turn¬ 
ed in by Captain Tom Link, Carl 
Kirschner, Robert Newmark, Harvey 
Miller, and Jerry Link. 

Coach Sheldon Spielberg is always 
looking for new talent and is hoping 
that his coming Swimathon will be of 
some help. The most promising pros¬ 
pects for next season are Carl Kirsch¬ 
ner, Bruce Goldberg, Mark Levinson, 
Rich Kantor, Ken Klein, Joe Valenti, 
Ira Rosnel, Bruce Kaiden, Jeff Ro¬ 
senberg, Jerry Link, the Miller twins, 
and Jay Sokol. 

Since the Mermen are losing only 
four members of the starting team at 
graduation, Coach Spielberg is look¬ 
ing forward to a good showing next 

One of the most interesting aspects 
of the swimming season was the pres¬ 
ervation of one of Tilden’s all-time 
sports records. In the past 33 years 
of dual meet competition, the Mer¬ 
men have never finished with a sub 
.500 season record. Mr. Spielberg ex¬ 
presses the hope that the following 33 
| years will be as successful. 

Sheepshead Ends Streak 

After winning their first two league 
games, the Blue Devils tackled the 
Skippers of Sheepshead Bay Decem¬ 
ber 10 in an exhibition game. A slow 
start in the first quarter caused an 
11 point deficit which proved to be too 
much for the Goldmen to overcome as 
they went down to defeat 62-56. 

Richie Knell sparked the team with 
his hard driving outside set shots 
which gave him a high of 16 points. 
Fred Kombluth, who couldn’t find the 
range in the first half, finished strong 
and tossed in 10 points. Mike Jaffe 
contributed 10 points and Mark Feit, 
who did a good job snatching re¬ 
bounds, netted 8. 

At the .end of the third quarter, the 
Skippers were out in front 41-33. An 
action-packed fourth quarter resulted 
in the Goldmen*s trimming the mar¬ 
gin to 6 points with 3 minutes left to 
play. Then, Thommy Billis and Jay 
Baron, who both played great games, 
insured a Sheepshead victory by scor¬ 
ing in the last minutes of play.
