Sure, call a few of the gang and have them come over. Wc can talk about the good old days. See you about seven. Ding-Dong. Joanne: The door is open kids, come right in. Hi Richy, Hi Joyce. Arc Connie and Charlie coming? Joyce: Yes, Charlie is picking Con- nie up, and Bobby Behrandi is coming, too. Is he still try- ing to win a baseball game? Richy: No, he gave up pitching after his senior year. A car has just driven in the yard. It must be Charlie Robinson with Con- nie McGovern. Joanne Hi kids, Joyce and Richy are already here. Come in and join us. Connie: Where’s Bobby? Joyce: He said he’d be here, but he’ll most likely be late. Richy: Remember our class committee meetings? Every time we had one, Bobby was always late. Charlie: Hey kids, remember our first class meeting? That was a very feeble attempt to start our class in the right direction. Connie: But with the help of Dan Barufaldi, Student Council President at that time, and Mrs. Sherman, our class advisor, we began our Freshman year. Joanne: Earl Frenier was our first president, and wasn’t Betty Ann Cote our vice-president? Richy: Yes, and Betty was also secretary our Senior year. Joyce: Oh, I remember!! I was secretary our first year, and David Monaghan was Treasurer for both the Freshman and Sophomore years. Ding-Dong! Ding-Dong! Ding-Dong! Connie: That must be Bobby!! Joanne: Hey Bob, just in time to help us out! We’re trying to recall our Freshman Cheerleaders. Do you remember! Bobby: Of course I do. They were — oh — ah — yeh — Richy: Barbara Morassi, Harriet Shea, Jane Andrews, Judy Brown, Janet Knapp, and Joyce Mercadante. Bobby: Sure, sure, I knew that all the time. Revenge is the poor delight of little minds 35Joyce: We didn’t have a very active year, but we did have a successful Freshman Party. Charlie: That was “Cuban Capers” — The girls sat on one side of the hall, and the boys sat on the other. It was lots of fun, even though no one wanted to be the first to dance. Joanne: Our Sophomore year was lots more fun, because we could join the clubs — and work in all the other activities. Connie: We started off slam-bang and elected Ricky Stahlc president. Bobby: Barbara Meissner who was chosen Secretary, kept this office for two years. Joanne: I hat was the year we went into our permanent home rooms, and Miss Durkan became our class advisor. Richy: That year we had the crazy party — “Dixie Land Jazz”. Joanne was general chairman, and Johnny Bcltrandi and his band supplied the music. Even Harry Rivers, the woman-hater, danced. Connie: Joanne and Barbara Meissner, Judy Robinson, Mary Brooks, and Janet Knapp were major- ettes the Freshman year, and Joyce Merk and I joined them in our Sophomore year. Joyce : Remember how excited we were just before Christmas our Junior year, waiting for our class rings? At the same time we were planning for our Cabaret — “Winter Wonderland.” Stanley Drzyzga was general chairman. Charlie: Don’t forget, Tom O’Keefe was elected President and we were very fortunate in having him as President our Senior year also. Also Donnie Gould was treasurer for two years. Hatti Shea was vice-president. Oh yes, and she was Editor of the Mirror our Senior year. Stanley Drzyzga was Student Council President and he and his patrol enforced the law. They certainly made a lot of arrests at the fire doors. Joanne: Betty Ann, General Chairman of the Prom, and her committees outdid themselves to make the dance a great success. We chipped bricks and chipped bricks and chipped bricks. I don’t think anyone will ever forget the beautiful evening we all had. It was the last dance to be held in the old school. Bobby: Joan O’Connor and Phillip Arnold were Junior Marshals for the last graduation at the old school. Joanne: Remember how proud we felt to be the first Senior Class in the new high school! It really was fun trying to find the right class room during our four minute rush between periods. Bobby: I remember asking the janitor directions to room 28. All he did was stand there and laugh. He didn’t know anymore than I did. But, I soon found it and had no trouble finding it after that — it was my homeroom. Richy: We received our class hats in September, and everyone wore them at the first assembly, which was held in the new gym because the auditorium wasn’t completed when school started. Connie: I remember the day when the Cubcttcs tried out for cheering. After the election, Mr. Daccy called the four groups that had tried out, into his office. He held the results in his hand, and just looked at all the girls. Then finally the words were spoken. Cubettes. Judy Robinson broke down in tears, and if it hadn’t been for Barb Morassi, Joanne and Barbara Meissner, Carolyn Aldrich, and Hatti Shea, everyone would have thought they had lost. We were really proud to have the cheer-leaders from our class. Charlie: Joyce, will you ever forget the kid party? That was the night Mr. Lconardi sat on Santa Claus’s knee (Gerard Dubuc). It really was lots of fun to go back to kiddie land. Richy: Tom O’Keefe was in the hospital, so a group tried to crash in and see him, but we didn’t succeed. Joyce: Then came the tedious task of picture taking at Bosworth’s Studio. Mr. Wright kept every- one laughing with his funny remarks. Joanne: Bill Morgan had the lead in “Girl Crazy”, our class play. Playing opposite him was Caro- line Aldrich. David Monaghan and Tom O’Keefe were in the supporting cast. Thanks to Miss Carozi, who went through a terrific struggle, the play was a great success. A long tongue shortens lifeCharlie: There was a lot of hard work in putting our yearbook together. Everyone tried to make our yearbook the best ever. Bobby: Bill Morgan was chairman of the committee for the class banquet, which was held at the Bradley Field Terrace Dining Room. It was fun hearing the Prophecy, History, and getting our class gifts and year books. We realized then that our happy school years were now quickly- coming to a close. Connie: Gerard Dubuc was chairman of the picnic committee. Remember what fun we had at Ocean Beach and how cold the water was? Joanne: Our caps and gowns were purple and white. Every one had a hard time keeping back the tears at graduation. Richy: It’s getting late; I think we better get started. It really has been great talking about our good days at A. H. S. I’m sure no one will ever forget our school days; they certainly were wonderful.

Leon Hebert is flying down the street in his low, custom built atomic car. Screech! He comes to a slow stop in front of a drugstore! He waltzes gaily into the drug- store and buys a package of plaid, gold - tipped puffs (cigarettes). As Leon is leaving, Carolyn Jacques darts into the drugstore! Ka Boom! She and Leon clunk space helmets! Carolyn’s main- spring is knocked off! She lies un- conscious on the floor! Leon lifts her quickly and, placing her in his atomic car, flies her to the nearest replacement plant (hospital). Head nurse, Dorothy Roos, receives the patient and calls immediately for Dr. Ricky Stahle. They rush her to the replacement chamber, where Harriet Shea and Janet Thorpe, two mainspring experts, assist Dr. Stahle in replacing Carolyn’s mainspring. Upon finishing the “operation” the six of us (Harriet, Carolyn, Janet, Dorothy, Ricky and Leon) discover we arc all former members of the “Class of 56”! Wc then decide it would be fun to take a tour through the much changed “town” and reminisce. Piling into Leon’s atomic car, we fly toward the center of the metropolis oi Agawam. Our first stop is at the Atom Refueling Station, owned and operated by Arthur King. Inside, repairing a jet, arc two well-known jet-mechanics, Ralph Butler and Stan Lipski. Our atom box quite full, wc blast off once more. Why, there are space patrolmen Bill Parent, Bob Beltrandi, and Gerry Haynes decked out in their latest pegged space patrol suits in that striking new shade of fuchsia. There’s Josephine Alfano, Agawam’s school patrol woman, directing little “idiots” across the street! Coming to a high-flying stop on the school roof top, we’re greeted by Al Fini. James Okey quickly anchors Leon’s car onto the roof. Sliding down a ramp in the middle of the roof, wc find ourselves in the middle lobby of the school, where Miss Caroline Aldrich, Principal, tells us, in her usual quiet voice, how pleased she is to see us once more. She then begins to show us around the school. We’re first introduced to the head history teacher, Connie McGovern. Going from room to room, we find that Mary Flaro is the family relations expert. Mary Magovern is the financial economist instructor. Entering the library, we arc greeted, with smiles, by Georgia Ober, head librarian. Quiet Jeanette Furiani is Georgia’s “obedient” secretary, and Phyllis A little body often harbors a great soul 41Radwilowicz is her speedy typist. At the farther end of the library is Beverly Pauze, very carefully, and casually, dusting off the books. Across the hall there is a new addition: “Reske Robbins Beautician's Course." Seated under the same automatic dryer arc Joyce Mercadante and Mary Brooks, who are looking at Amber Wolcott's Fashion Art Digest and winking at tall Bill Martel. Adjoining the beautician’s room is the F. F. A. Room (Future Farmers of Agawam). Here we are greeted by the chapter mother, Joan O'Connor. Pete Cecchi, easy-going instructor, then takes us to see “some of the boys.” Leaving Pete’s office, we sec Stan Osowiecki, who has tw o young chickens in his arms. At the farther end of this room we see Earl Van Wagner, working on his latest idea, a super-duper earth remover. We then leave the F. F. A. Room, and we notice a crowd that has gathered during one of the three-second space intervals between classes. Upon inquiring, we discover a date bureau has also been added, under the capable direction of Barbara Murphy. We’re then led by the head janitors, Larry Pohner, Danny Sullivan, and Leo Vergnani outside the school, where we see “Carmen's Rodio of Morgan Horses"! Here we find many high-society women who are “keeping in trim”: Jean De Forge, Carol Kossick, Lillian Harrison, and Faye Cummings. Leaving the horse rodio, we sec veterinarian, Dr. David Monaghan, crying bitterly over the death of an itsy-bitsy Morgan pony, with nurse Judy Brown, trying to comfort him. Saying good-bye to all our friends, we leave the school and head for the Meissner sisters' “Twinburger House"! We give our order to Barb Morassi, the short-order cook! Upon finishing our twinburgers, we hear a band outside and rush out to sec a parade coming down the street. From the conversation around us, we find the parade is in honor of Al Perrah, Mike Bonavita, and Gerard Dubuc, heroes of World War III. The Mayor, Philip Arnold, is directly behind our three heroes. Following him arc Francis Collins, witty lawyer, Tom O'Keefe, top insurance agent, and Stanley Drzyzga, owner of the “YOU NAME IT” amusement park. Among the high-stepping space patrol force we recognize Gordon “Smiley" Smarse, Richard ,(Dick" Brinn, Charles “Trigger" Rogers, and Robert “Dimples" Dudley. On the side lines we see Jimmy Hauser and his wife (nee) Myrna Hyland, and Mrs. Davenport (nee) Muriel Fleming, with her twelve ‘lil darlings! Sitting in his black atomic car, we see John Hauser, and his faithful chauffeur, Susan La Francis. We then see Richard Cebrelli, who we discover is the owner of the biggest bakery on the main drag of Agawam. He invites us in to see his establish- ment. Upon entering we recognize Joyce Chriscola and Nancy Adams, who arc really in the dough. The parade having passed, we leave Dick’s Bakery and proceed down the street. We pass “Karakla Brewer's Funeral Home," where Audrey La Course is the solemn head-embalming agent. The six of us, now in the mood for excitement, decide to go to the night club across the street, namely, “The House of Night Lights.” Upon entering, we are greeted by the host Bill Blanchard, and hostess, Eleanor D'Amato. We check our coats with Pat Connor, and arc then pulled along the magnetized wall until we come to the corridor of pink lights, which leads to die Champagne Room. Here, slender Janet Knapp leads us to our sunken table, and waiter, Dick Orr, gets a beverage for us from die bartender, Larry Catania. Bertha Longey briefs us on the program for the evening. Richard Arnold, cute, little Master of Ceremonies, then comes on to the stage and introduces the first act, which features Theresa Slaimen, Queen of the Bubble Dancers! Donald Gould and his orchestra then play If you utter insults you will also hear them 1the “Jazz Jump” with Mary Belcher plunking at the piano. Next on the program is a comedy act, starring Carol Bonavita and her trained mice. Last on the program, but certainly not least, is Handsome Harry Rivers and his well-known chorus girls: Georgia King, Carol Schmidt, Muriel Miller, Beverly Ploof, Barbara, who's Pepe, Marion Templeman, and Lillian Fournier! Tonight they arc all wearing Rosalie's Mascaro! The show over, we notice Jane Andrews sitting near the stage, decked in furs, elegance galore, proprietor of the “House of Night Lights,” talking with the cigarette girl Joan Marshall. We begin to leave, when suddenly a commotion is heard in the back room. We follow the hall of red lights to the gambling casino, illegally run by Bill (Teddy Bear) Irwin, and Betty Ann Cote. Passing through the gambling room, we approach the door to the back room where we hear the familiar voice of singing star Carol Lcger, and her agent Charlie Robinson, who are having a terrific argument with Chet Krygowski, M G M’s newest movie producer. They quickly reach an agree- ment, and all is normal once more. We then leave the “House of Night Lights” and start back toward the car. While walking back, we hear a dull roar, and looking upward, we see Dick Prew and his new bride Rosemarie Mazza, flying by in Dick’s new souped-up jet! Quite exhausted, we enter Leon’s car and head for Dr. Stahle’s mansion. We arc invited in to relax by his wife (nee) Judy Robinson. And so ends our day’s reunion with our classmates with whom we shall always share so many secret memories!

Seniors.FOOTBALL With the opening of the 1955-56 football season, Agawam High saw the return of Harm Smith as head coach, after his one year’s leave of absence. During this season the AA Football Conference of Western Mass, was formed. It consisted of the top eight football teams in this area with Agawam being included in the conference. Our eleven had an eight game schedule but due to the inclement weather only six of the eight games were played. Of the six games our boys won only one, tied one, and lost four. This was more or less expected this season due to the fact that we produced a young, green, and new team. Prospects for next year shape up rather smartly. Our senior ballplayers were Thomas O’Keefe and David Monaghan, captains; Stanley Drzyzga, Richard Stahlc, Gerard Dubuc, William Irwin, Robert McGuire, Charles Robinson, William Blanchard, Harry Rivers, manager; and Chester Krygowski, freshman assistant coach.D. MONAGHAN BASKETBALL This year’s varsity basketball team was the first to play on the new Agawam High School court, which is the best court in the area. Although the team practiced hard and diligently, they suffered an unsuccessful season as they managed to win only one game. This was due partly to the lack of height of the players; and as a team, inexperience. Mr. Kistncr, who has been head basketball coach for the past eight years, resigned at the end of the season to accept an administra- tive position in the Agawam system. Senior members were Robert Bcltrandi, William Irwin, David Monaghan, Richard Orr, and Carmen Rodio. W. IRWIN R.

Installed at Agawam High was the first pitching machine ever used in Agawam or any other school in Western Massachusetts. This fantastic machine can whip a ball over the plate at a rate of speed of between 80 and 90 miles an hour. Senior Members: R. Bcltrandi. D. Monaghan, S. Drzyzga, C. Krygowski. Managers.
