The Thirties As the

The Thirties As the nation sought to rid itself of bad stocks and remove its money from failing banks, a new president entered the scene. Franklin Delano Roosevelt set out to bring the nation out of its slump before it collapsed permanently. People tried to find ways to recover, but with Congressional disapproval of reform measures, the nation fell into a dark depression. FDR’s first hundred days were spent developing a New Deal program stressing the three R's - relief, recovery, and reform. Fie set out with enthusiasm to change the nation, strong in the belief that "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself." FDR proposed many new acts designed to help people find employment and save money. Congress rejected many of the proposals but finally accepted a few such as the Tennessee Valley Authority and Labor Acts. As FDR attempted to save the nationa, Stalin in Russian and Hitler in Germany rapidly rose in power. Both dictators desired to gain more land and take over Europe. More aggressive in his demands, Hitler took over France. As a consequence, Great Britain declared war on Germany and hoped the United States would aid their effort. Instead, FDR chose to remain neutral, but the decade ended with the American view again directed toward Europe and its problems. (continued from page 13) he would often deliver an inspirational oration that students would remember for years to come. Of the ten members of the class of 1956, six were admitted MIT, Brown, Yale, Trinity and two to Lehigh. By 1959, enrollment had increased to well over X O students, with a graduating class of seventeen. This last class under Mr. Wardlaw's tutelage was the largest in the school’s history. At the emotional final commencement in June, 1959, the graduating class presented a silver shafted cane with their signatures as a fitting tribute to a man who was undoubtedly one of the most loved headmasters at any private school in the nation. On February 15, 1951, John A. Darsie, president of the Hartridge board of trustees, announced that Mrs. Philips planned to retire at the end of the school year. He said, "When Mrs. Philips submitted her resignation to the board of trustees, it was accepted with the deepest personal regret by the members of the board. "Under the guidance of Mrs. Philips, the school has not only carried on the fine tradition established by Miss Hartridge, but has maintained its position of high rank in the secondary field. "The naming of a successor has not been a serious problem, however, for in Miss Sleeper and Miss Hitchings the school has on its staff able administrators who have had many years of service in education, a large part of which has been at the Hartridge School. The school, we fell sure, will carry on the same high standard of scholarship that existed under the leadership of Miss Hartridge and Mrs. Philips." He noted that Miss Sleeper had wide training and experience. The daughter of the late Prof. Henry D. Sleeper, for many years head of the Music Department at Smith College, she graduated from Smith in I9T3. Miss Sleeper then taught Busby Berkeley transformed the screen musical by expanding tradition to a previously undreamed of scale. Above, Dames, 1934. By the thirties (billboard on Highway 99), the automobile was a symbol of the good of life. By the mid century, it had produced the superhighway and the suburban 'shopping center’ and was drawing away population, and was changing the character of urban life. WORLD'S HIGHEST STANDARD O F LIVING (continued to page 15)

(continued from page 14) at the Park School in Cleveland, the Brooklyn Ethical Culture School and the Harley School in Rochester. In 1932, Miss Sleeper earned a master’s degree in educational psychology from Columbia University. She joined the Hartridge faculty in 1933, became head of the Lower School in 1935 and associate principal in 1940. Miss Sleeper was widely known in academic circles for her work in helping to write the Master Key Arithmetics series. She directed Camp Marbury in Vergennes, V t„ for more than 20 years. After her retirement she spent her summers there and her winters in Montpelier, Vt. In Plainfield, she was an officer of the United Family and Children’s Society, but devoted almost all of her efforts to Hartridge and its activities. Miss Sleeper was co-author of a textbook for educators, "The Creative Individual." Miss Sleeper spent 35 years at Hartridge, 17 of those as principal. During her years as head, the enrollment nearly doubled and there were waiting lists for many grades when she retired. In summing up her tenure, Miss Sleeper said she emphasized the policy begun by Miss Hartridge ''to give the students as much freedom as is compatible with sound scholarship.” The early 1950’s saw more changes. In 1953 Margaretta Kuhlthau designed the new school seal which replaced the original Hart on a Ridge logo, which continued to be used for a number of years on class rings. The new seal was an upright oval with a dark border on which the words "The Hartridge School” and "Knowledge is Power" were written. In the center was a banner with the date Miss Hargridge took over the school. 1903, and a shield. For some years, the trustees had hoped to erect new buildings at Plainfield Avenue. Instead, in 1954, the money in the building fund was invested in the rejuvenation of the Main House. While retaining the classic Victorian style, the third and fourth floors were removed, as were the north and west proches and the portecochere. A new south wing was added to give a main entrance. Elsewhere on campus, the old clay tennis courts were replaced. The changes stood the school in good stead until it became apparent that Hartridge needed more classrooms and a full size gymnasium. In 1958 the Harriet Sleeper Gymnasium and science labs were built. Because of this expansion the hockey field was turned on end from perpendicular to Plainfield Avenue to parallel. The cafeteria was enlarged. A year later the Art Studio and History of Art room were added to the new gym. The old science labs were moved from the basement of the old gym, and additional locker rooms and a large music room resulted. With all the changes, certain things remained constant, including the sound of Miss Sleeper’s bugle calling students to class when the bells weren’t working, the set of trains in her office, and the red engineer's cap Miss Sleeper wore at varsity games. In 1968, the Hue and Cry offered this summary of Miss Sleeper: "To run a school, all it took was devotion, diligence, understanding, labor for as much as 18 hours a day, sympathy, intelligence, capacity, resilence, love for the job, the school, the faculty, and the community* and, oh yes, fith, hope and charity. Miss Sleeper had them all.” When she retired an editorial in the Curier News said that a long-time trustee had described her as a person who adjusted to any situation with absolutely no fuss, while "inside she’s solid oak.” The newspaper went on: "She can compromise on the means, but never on the ends, the trustee said, and while she has definite objectives, high standards and staunch principles — she manages to attain her goals by almost invisible means. She has touched the lives of many girls. "In her position as teacher and principal, Miss Sleeper has been happily tireless in her attention to every facet of the schools operation and its extra-curricular activities as well. At the same time she has maintained an interest in each girl as an individual. "Miss Sleeper can be absolutely objective in her attitudes, a longtime associate said of her. She has been praised for her sense of humor as well as her good humor — two entirely different attributes.” Miss Sleeper died in Vermont on October 13,1975. She was 73 years old. 15
