You Are There This is Mat Sulborski, your WHIZ reporter, bringing you the up-to-the minute news on the first rocket trip to the moon. Here by my side is Professor Lucia Alfano, the leading woman scientist of today, who helped make this trip possible. The outcome of this trip will depend mostly on Ace Sharpe, the pilot of this dual-hopped up space ship. The ship was to be piloted by Bill Morello, who was suspended from the air for flying on the wrong side of the air waves. Ace’s able co-pilot is Connie Phillips. Mat Sulborski over. And now we will switch to the rocket where the Christening is about to take place. Come in, Adrienne Grasso. We have about five minutes before the Christen- ing takes place. Looking over this great multitude of people, I see two of our eminent scholars: I)r. Ray Saracino, the famous English professor who studied under Dean Nardi, and Professor Finnigan Marsian, head of the Science Depart- ment at Smith College. Over on my right are the nationally famous “SPWFS’S.” That is “The Society for the Prevention of Wandering Flying Saucers,” whose members include Jo Zabini, Sandra Channell, Sandra Sjostrom, Shirley Harrison, Joyce Sullivan, and Dolores Luccardi. Standing directly in front of me arc two famous pianists, Sandra Zerra and Susan Yeakel. Our switchboard operator, Lourdes Dumond, has just informed me that we have but two minutes remaining before the Christening. I’ll return in a moment after this brief message from John Cardone. “Is your hair mousey and hard to manage? Does it have that half and half look? If so, try LIGHT AND BRIGHT. You will have that universal glow. Take a tip from Shirley Magagnoli, starring on our new stratospheric screen in ‘Thru the Knothole.’ ” This is Betty Voislow replacing Mat, who has just gone down to Robert Mitchell1 s Coffee Shop. At the site of the launching, Anthony Liquori s Can Can girls—Annette Girard, Marie Steeves, Kay Parent, and Berta Rubino,—are dancing to the music of Paul Montagna’s band, “The Swingaroos,” with Donaldine Roos at the guitar, Nancy Richardson on the piccolo, Marjorie Magovern on the violin, and Jane Soden at the cymbals. Coming through the line is Terry Morassi, reporter for the “Moon and Earth Consolidated.” Miss Phelps is about to christen the ship “Fifi” with a bottle of Miller High Life. 33Out in the crowd I can sec a sign carried by Pat Losito, the mortician, which reads, “If you don’t succeed, I will.” The hostesses, Janet Dulong and Louise Spagnuolo, are now closing the doors —maybe for the last time. A hush spreads over the crowd. The seconds tick away. Four—Three—A late news flash—Donald King will not be able to make the trip due to illness—Two—One— Hold It! Something went wrong. They’re having trouble with the exhaust. Dr. Jonathan Anderson is rushing forward, and carrying his medical bag is Barbara Cammisa, his faithful nurse. He calls for a stretcher. Here comes the stretcher. They’re carrying away—oh, yes—Frank Moruzzi, who stuck his nose in once too often. This is Betty Voislow switching back to Mat Sulborski at station WHIZ. Hello, folks. This is a very interesting spectacle we are viewing. I will now- switch you over to Ralph D’Amato, who is stationed on the rocket. This is Ralph D’Amato in Compartment A. Here on my left arc Roland Mercadante and Steven Sliech who are going to the moon to investigate butterflies and their habitats. Carrying their equipment is Robert Slate. In this same com- partment we have Dick Pisano, who is going up to draw sketches of the monstrous moon creatures for “Nature Magazine.” His writer, Ralph Coughlin, is accompany- ing him. Sitting next to me is Humph Jabry, the criminal lawyer, who is going to the moon to gather evidence for the mysterious murder of Don Mullaney. Humph is on the trail of Robert Sigrist, who, he believes, committed the murder. Mr. Jabry is being assisted by his secretary, Lois Bontempo. Over in the corner are the “three stooges” who have been banned from the earth—Millie Pohner, Judy Hyland, and Delores Giordano. We interrupt this program to bring you a special news bulletin. Harold NowUl has just returned from a coon hunt sponsored by Ray Favreau Boone, Inc., the well-known manufacturer of coon skin hats. Speaking of hunting, Marilyn Wilson and Jim O’Keefe have gone house hunting again for their growing family. Judy Peterson and Vaughan Kelley arc now' appearing in the stage hit, “Beauty and the Idiot,” produced by Money Bags Dan Molt a, Narroway’s most eligible bachelor. We return you nowr to Ralph D’Amato. Dick Chase, star of that famous interplanetary program, “Fishnet,” is on the trail of the notorious moonshiners: Robert King, Robert Light, and Donald Avery. But little docs he know they are on the other side of this compartment disguised as the rocket mechanics. We will now switch back to earth. Come in Adrienne Grasso. The rocket is now out of sight, and the crowd is slowly dispersing. Driving away in Bill Rhodes’s taxi is Rev. Blackburn and his lovely wife, the former Elaine Jones, who also were at the farewell scene. Gliding away in her limousine is Julie Mercier and her agent gigolcttes, Lois Lindblad, Sandra Rivers, Joan Provost, and Doris Grant. Nancy Hallock must have made a killing with her Solar System potato chips; that is, if she didn’t eat them all herself. News Flash—We will now bring you the results of the “Greatest Fight of the Century,” between “Cheech” Liberatore, and “Mooch” Imelio. It was the easiest decision of the year. “Cheech” knocked Mooch out, but wfas knocked out himself when he stumbled over Mooch’s glove. Next week we have a special treat for all you men. A wrestling match between Frannie Radwilowicz and Molly Hawkins with Rocco Greco as the referee. 34We return you once more to the rocket. Come in, Ann Zucco. This is Ann in Compartment 2. Here in my compartment are Judy Slate and Rhoda Dickinson, who are going to the moon to fashion the latest in moonwear. Along with them to model these fashions are Joan DcMars, Barbara Cheney, Alice Mueller, and Theresa Wright. On my left is Rab Anderson, who is going to play basketball with the “Moon- beams.” Along with him is his coach, Phil Cardone and his ever loving wife, Cecily Danforth. We have another sports celebrity amongst us—Robert Clam pit and his all- American girls’ basketball team, Liz Langlois, Jean Maule, Virg Pisano, and Pat Modzelewski. In the front of my compartment arc Jim Reardon and Sandra Kelley, who are planning to start a dairy farm on the Milky Way. Also here is Barbara Maiolo who is going up to try to date the man in the moon. There seems to be some commotion in the next compartment. We will switch over to sec what the trouble is. A stowaway, Roland Banville, has been discovered by Mary Pond, the famous biologist who is traveling to the moon to investigate frogs’ eyes. Chief cook Frannie Willard and her bottlewashcr Rock Leclerc have just cooked the meal served by Rosemarie Baggetta and Marlene Thompson. As a public service, we will have a special radio program over our loud speaker featuring a popular singer, Carol Pallo, who revived her old favorite “Dear John.” The long awaited moment has finally arrived. The hostesses, Barbara and Betty Picard, are now telling everyone to fasten their safety belts. We’re coming in for a landing. “POW.” As the doors of the space ship are opened by Shirley Mutti, the surprise is too great for her; she faints. Wc hear some- thing approaching. What strange moon creature could have caused this? Is it possible there is life here? Someone walks in. Everyone clusters around John Spineti, the first mortal to reach the moon. When asked how he reached the moon wc heard the echo of his history-making reply, “It was a snap.” John Cardonf.

Raymond Saracino, Nancy Richardson, Joyce Sullivan, and Ellsworth Sharpe have just recently sought the sanction of a friendly and peaceful rest home. Their quiet life is often brightened by visits from some of their former classmates. On one occasion Donald Avery and Sandra Rivers happened to visit the four inmates just in time for tea. As usual the group began to reminisce about the wonderful days which they had spent at their dear old alma mater. Their informal discussion sounded something like this: Ray: Nan: Joyce: Ellsworth: Nancy, do you remember our Freshman year at Agawam? We certainly thought that our class was the best, and in later years, it turned out to be just that. At our first attempt to hold an organized class meeting we elected Jim O’Keefe Presi- dent, and Holt Sawyer was given the position of Vice-President. Lucia Alfano was burdened with the task of collecting dues, and Donaldine Roos became our class Secretary. How could any of us forget that first glorious year? I remember so vividly our social debut at the annual Freshman Party. Jim O’Keefe was appointed General Chairman of this successful spring dance, known far and wide as the “Bunny Hop.” Jim must have been busy with his presidential duties plus his position as supervisor of the party, but he handled both jobs admirably. Mr. Tourvillc was also very helpful as our class adviser. Our Freshman year passed much too quickly, and before we had had time to appreciate our carefree life, it was time to make plans for our Sophomore year. I remember that Phil Cardonc became President, and Lucia Alfano was elected Vice-President. My failing memory also seems to recall that we chose John Cardonc to handle our financial affairs and Donaldine Roos to keep the records. Miss Phelps also obtained a new and enviable position — she became our permanent class adviser. Don: On March 14, 1952, we had a terrific Sophomore Party, namely the “Gay Prom- enade.” Jim O’Keefe and his staff did an excellent job. All the arrangements were perfect, and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. Sandy: Up to that time our class had earned a high reputation in Agawam, but the best was yet to come. In our Junior year we really started to work for perfection. We immediately elected an energetic staff of officers — Roger Lcclcrc, President: Lucia Alfano, Vice-President; Donaldine Roos, Secretary; and John Cardonc, Treasurer. 37Joyce: Roger Lcclerc and his committees did magnificently well in organizing the festivities for the annual Junior Cabaret. The “Shanghai Swirl,” held in December, 1952, was a gay and delightful afifair. Nan: But it was our Junior-Senior Prom that was truly spectacular. Under the direction of Raymond Saracino, we successfully carried out the complicated plans which we had made. On May 22, 1953, our Prom, called “An Evening in Paris,” made local history as one of the most elaborate and colorful dances ever presented at the high school. Ray: Senior Year! The most exciting, yet the most heartbreaking year. It seems like only yesterday that we were so busy getting ads for our yearbook, measuring for caps and gowns, wearing class beanies to the assemblies, and, in general, just having a riotous time. Sandy: We all enjoyed our Senior events so very much, but we were always rather sad too because we realized that our carefree days would soon be gone. Ellsworth: We started off with a bang by selecting a fine group to lead our class in its activities. Roger Lcclerc retained his position as President; Mary Pond became Vice-President; Donaldinc Roos maintained her job as Secretary for the fourth consecutive year; and John Cardone was re-elected Treasurer. Joyce: That was the year that our class made a record in the brilliance department; we had produced 28 Pro Meritos, the largest number Agawam High School had ever had. And of course our class wasn’t all brain; there was also quite a bit of brawn on the football field that year, as I recall. Don: It certainly was swell to have a legitimate excuse to act juvenile at the Kid Party. The party was held just before Christmas in 1953, and Richard Jabry was very convincing in his role of “jolly old Saint Nick.” Ray: Yes, but it was those Senior play rehearsals that were really tops. At first it didn’t seem as though the cast was ever going to get down to business, but as April 30th drew near, fear drove them to work. It paid off too; “Beauty and the Beef’ was the most hilarious play ever seen at our school. Joyce: I shall never, as long as I live, forget our Class Banquet. We relived our entire four years of high school in that one evening; it was truly a night to remember. Nan: The entire year was overcast with a shadow — the thought of leaving our beloved school, and all too soon, June 1954 was at hand and it was time to say our fare- wells. However, our graduation exercises were so impressive that very few of us thought seriously about the cruel future which was awaiting us until the ceremony had been completed. Ellsworth: I was always terribly fond of picnics, especially the food part, but I never had a better time than I did at our Class Picnic. The picnic was a gala event as opposed to the solemn graduation ceremony which preceded it. 3$Don: Sandy: Joyce: Sandy: Ray: We have all accomplished many great things and followed many different paths since June 1954, but, speaking for myself, I know that I shall always be grateful for the aid which my teachers and friends gave to me while I was attending Agawam High School. I wouldn’t have been half as successful as I have been if I hadn’t had my wonderful high school education behind me. Donald, you’re getting sentimental in your old age. I’m sure that our entire class feels the same as you do about Agawam High, but you don’t have to overdo it. It’s almost time for our dinner; won’t you folks stay and eat with us? No, I’m afraid we can’t; my daughter is expecting me home soon, so we really must be going along. Well, we really hate to see you leave, but we will see you and all the rest of the old crowd next week at the 45th reunion of the Class of 1954, Agawam High School.

This year’s play was entitled “Beauty and the Beef.” It revolved around seventeen year old Ginny Allen, who was the smartest girl ever to graduate from the Junior Quiz Program, and because of this she was not very popular with the boys. The situations and predicaments in which she involved her family made a very amusing story. The play was under the direction of Mrs. Katherine Kalloch, who did a won- derful job. The play was enjoyed by everyone. 49 'mjvuS fvv wWa VftjjjnJALONG THEAGAWAM HIGH SCHOOL BAND Director ...................................... Howard Crotty Senior Members ............

Once again the annual events, such as the magazine drive and the ‘Sock and Sweater” dance, were very enthusiastically supported by the Council and the rest of the school. Delegates from the Student Council attended the fall and spring Western Massachusetts Student Council Conventions in Westfield and Chicopee. The Council’s responsibilities included patrolling the stairways and corridors, and the opening and closing of the fire doors between classes. This year the Council established a Student Council Scholarship of $100.00 to be awarded to a deserving senior boy or girl. President ..... Vice-President Secretary ..... Treasurer ....

OF AGAWAM HIGH SCHOOL The Agawam Chapter of the F. F. A. has been growing steadily, and this year they have a large membership. Much credit goes to their adviser, Mr. Skolnick, for the wonderful job he has done with the boys. This year they represented Agawam at the National convention in Kansas City. Their adviser and the chapter president each were awarded plaques, and the chapter received the Gold Emblem Award signifying that the Agawam chapter was one of the best in the country. The F. F. A. band also had the privilege of playing at the national convention. We were really proud of them. Each year, the F. F. A. sponsors an annual square dance, and at this time they pick an F. F. A. sweetheart. This year Donaldinc Roos was chosen as F. F. A. sweetheart. In addition she was Mr. Skolnick’s secretary. The chapter’s annual banquet was also very successful this year. The chapter members really abide bv their motto: LEARNING TO IX), DOING TO LEARN, EARNING TO LIVE, LIVING TO SERVE. President ...... Vice-President . Secretary ....... Treasurer ......

This was made possible by the loyal staff members, who sold an increased number of subscriptions, advertising space, stationery, and home-made fudge. The make-up of the Mirror was changed considerably with the introduction of horizontal columns for easier reading. Also the appearance of larger pictures and cuts made a more attractive-looking school paper. Editor .................................................

SeniorsFOOTBALL This year marked another very successful foot- bal season for Agawam High School. The team finished the season with an impressive record of six wins and but one loss. At the beginning of the year, even the most loyal Agawam fans were a bit skeptical as to the success Agawam would have during the football season; for there were only three returning letter- men — Phil and John Cardone and Roger Leclerc However, under the skillful coaching and guidance of “Harm” Smith and Harry Leonardi, the team turned into a really strong ball club. There were many outstanding players on the team, but even more important was the fact that the team always worked as a unit. Several Agawam players received mention when it came time to choose the 1953 All - Western Massachusetts football team. Center Roger Lc- clerc was placed on the first team, and Agawam captain and fullback Phil Cardone was placed on the second team. John Cardone, Bob Ander- son, Bobby Mcrcadante, and Roland Banville received honorable mention. Senior Members: Phillip Cardone, Captain; Robert Anderson, Roland Banville. John Cardone. Robert Clampit, Richard Jabry. Roger Leclerc, Daniel Molta. James O’Keefe, Ellsworth Sharpe: Raymond Saracino. Manager and Freshman Coach. 77Front Row: Ass’t Manager James Hauser. Hastings. L.

BASKETBALL 1953-1954 Our basketball team, under the capable guidance of Coach Kistner, this year compiled a record of twelve wins and seven losses. The team worked hard and faithfully and, like all Agawam teams, showed great spirit and sportsmanship. The team had ten great players, all having many individual talents. Its starting five consisted of Co-Captains Jim O’Keefe and Bob Anderson, along with Donny Hastings, Dan Molta, and Roger Leclcrc. This five was broken up when Jim O’Keefe broke his elbow and Don Hastings fractured his hand, but the team still didn’t lose its spirit. They went on to whip West Springfield for the first time in fourteen contests, and Agawam finished second in the Valley Wheel. This was a wonderful group and deserves a lot of credit. 78BASEBALL This year Agawam High School’s baseball team had a new coach, Peter Sarantopoulos, a former infielder for Pennsylvania State University. The coach had a good foundation on which to build the team. There were five returning letter- men — Bob Anderson, Phil Cardone, Roger Lcclcrc. Don Marsian, and Jim O’Keefe. Agawam’s twenty-one game schedule this year included games with Trade, Ware, Chicopee, South Hadley, Cathedral, Easthainpton, Ludlow, Palmer, West Springfield, Classical, Tech, and Enfield. Senior Members: J. Anderson, R. Anderson, P. Cardone, Lederc, Losito, Marsian. J. O’Keefe. Slate. R. Saracino. assistant. 79GIRLS' SPORTS The senior high school girls are given the opportunity to develop good sports- manship through after-school sports.
