THIS IS NOT DAVID KERSEY - Rather it's a giant rat
from his memorable 1973 production "The Day They
Parachuted Cats on Borneo." The boy behind the mask
is not Paul Weitz, but Ralph Whitmore.
SCHOOLMASTERS ALL - labovei DWK and Messrs. Cole
and Landis try to amuse patrons in last spring's Benefit
production "The Happiest Days of Your Life." Neither an
accomplished Shakespearean nor Vaudevillian, DWK
nevertheless has great talent for all things theatrical, being
able to turn even the most sodden prose into thrills for the
audience. lbelowi Our hero reveals his inner Iongings for
Catholic education as he is discovered wearing a St.
David's lno he has not been cannonized yeti T-shirt
beneath his A-S jacket.
DWK - attired for an afternoon of Poland's national game
- foursquare. Intrepid leader of Saturday Club lplay now,
pay laterj and "Kersey's Warriors" on Friday afternoons,
David spends much of his time permanently suited up in
DAVID KERSEY has been a favorite fixture
around 78th Street for eight long years now.
His amiable disposition, penchant for long hours,
attraction to the locker room, and outstanding abili-
ty with student dramatics have endeared him to all
except those who don't wish to go to field. As our
outgoing Director of Athletics lsici, friend and co-
commiserator when things are rotten, we should
like to thank him for his years of service by dedi-
cating this humble yearbook of 1977.
David came to Allen-Stevenson as a Fourth Grade
pedagogue in 1969. Following the departure of
Hugh "the Doorman" Dietz from Seventh Grade
Biology and Athletic Director posts, David was
"kicked upstairs" to Seventh Grade math and the
sports job. Famed throughout every league as the
most inaccessible athletic director ever known lDa-
vid has appx. 4 min. per day to answer phones,
make calls, etc.i, our hero has nonetheless presided
over the period of Allen-Stevenson's greatest athlet-
ic successes, Unicorn teams have generally been the
scourge of RandalI's Island since his pontificate
began in 1973.
Still, David's greatest successes have probably oc-
curred in other fields, he has continued directing
stunning student productions and even starred in an
adult production himself! A hard-working student of
Nancy Streetman, he has mastered the 'cello, earn-
ing his orchestra patch from Maestro Gauger. A
devoted opera-goer and bon vivant, David will be
sorely missed when he goes to Brazil in the spring
of 1978 for his well-earned sabbatical. Thanks for
everything, DWK, now can you get us a game with
Buckley Country Day?
OUR HERO - no, the Editors did
not crop out the numbers and this ffffm -
mug is not from the Hingham
police files. Unfortunately they
were closed for New Year's when
we called to request photographs.
CAUGHT AT LAST! - David has successfully avoided the last 43 team pictures,
being otherwise involvedg reportedly he even escaped the staff picture in the
Monty Python yearbook! Here our fearless leader is captured for posterity fno,
this is his facej with his all-winning IV football team of fall 1975, which he
coached with "Run-Colorado" Roy Parker.
KERSEY THE PAINTER - costumer and set designer
Kersey revealed his talents once again at G 81 S time by
painting in the sky of Japan for Ms. Kopple's stunning
backdrop. This is why Aurora Borealis appears over Mt.
BAITING THE ISSUE - Again DWK displays his thespian
talents, shown here with Bonnie Sommers in "Happiest
Days." Lovesick young English master Kersey was only
moderately successful in attracting the attentions of

MR. COLE has followed up yet another fine year,
this being his third as Headmaster. Mr. Cole
continued his course on preparation for SSAT tests
and exams. He began a new winter activity, the
Polar Bears, who braved the freezing temperatures
of Central Park, Mr. Cole ran the Resevoir with the
rest of the Upper School, and set a new record
beating all the preceeding Headmasters.
Mr. Suter, having just completed his twelfth year
at Allen-Stevenson, is still a dominant figure in the
Upper School faculty. He is always able to give
sound advice, and is constantly challenging boys to
their maximum. He is always there to fill in for

him on the Gridiron at Randalls Island.
Mr. Kersey, after his eighth year at Allen-Steven-
son, still is the Athletics Director and a Math teach-
er. He had a Fifth Grade homeroom. After Saturday
Club and before school on weekdays one can al-
ways see Mr. Kersey playing his cellog he began
playing for Mr. Gauger last year.
Mr. Gauger has now finished his thirtieth year as
Musical Director, and this was his thirtieth season
with the Orchestra and Chorus. This year the
Chorus produced the Mikado under the direction of
Stanley "Caruso" Gauger.
Mrs. Daniels assists Mr. Cole as Alumni Secretary.
Mrs, Katz is entering her third year as Financial
Secretary, and Mrs. Landis continues as Mr. Nichols'
Admissions Assistant. Mrs. Landis is infinitely help-
ful in keeping contact with future applicants. Of
course there is the ever-present-to-treat-a-wound
Mrs. McCarthy, the Nurse.
Mrs. Andrejevic is the new Second Grade teacher
replacing Mrs. Ebling. Mrs. Andrejevic graduated
from Smith College with an A.B. and from Hunter
with an M.A. She has taught Kindergarten, First
Grade, and Third Grade.
Mrs. Bounds continues as the veteran half of the
Third Grade. She continues to teach in a style that
has sent so many students so well prepared into
While the Third and all other grades carry on
upstairs Mr. Daly is coaching Varsity Basketball or
teaching the Lower Schoolers physical education.
Mr. Daly still wears assorted sweatshirts and pants,
but then why wouldn't he wear his trademark?

Holderness was hired, Mr. English. Mr. English
teachers French and Spanish to various grades, in-
cluding the Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, and Ninth grades.
He coaches Cross-Country and junior Varsity Hock-

teaching fundamentals to future Upper Schoolers.
After heading North to try his luck in the Cold
weather, Mr. Grassi has gotten both cold weather
and good fortune. Mr. Grassi has coached a winning

At the end of his sixteenth year at Allen-Steven-
son, Mr. Harlan has once again proved that he is
worthy of all the praise given him in his last year's
Dedication. Mr. Harlan has taught Sixth and Eighth
Grade History and a Fourth Grade homeroom dur-
ing that span of time.
Mr. julian is one of the twelve new teachers this
year. He is a good friend of Mr. Parker from Colum-
bia. Mr. julian teaches Science to half of the Eighth
and Ninth Grades. Mr. julian has tutored math and
taught emotionally disturbed children.
Mrs. johnson is not the first johnson to set foot in
the limited boundaries of Allen-Stevenson, and
hopefully not the last. She teaches Math to part of
the Eighth and Ninth Grades. She has taught at
Brearley, Buckley and Lawrenceville. For the sec-
ond year in a row Mrs. Krasa, our school House-
mother, has provided us with some very tasty dish-

Mr. Landis is still kicking out on the gridiron and
the baseball diamond. He still teaches English and
History and will hopefully do so for years to come.
He has been the backbone of the Varsity football
and Baseball teams coaching staffs for many years.
This year he directed, with much success, the Ninth
Grade plays by O. Henry, Doyle, Chekov.
. This past year produced a very effective remedial
program, headed by Mr. Orzechowski. This is a
remedial program and a basis for learning many new
skills. The program is for the benefit of any Upper
Mr. Meyendorff replaced Mr. Sandifur as Shop
teacher, he is quite cramped for space but is making
do with what he has got.
Mr. Pariseau is still the backbone of the Upper
School Math Department. He began a computer
course for the advanced section of Eighth math. He
taught Math and History to the Ninth Grade. He
headed the Computer Program and was Faculty
Advisor to the Student Council. He was the Master
of Ceremonies at the Fourth Annual Acedemic Bowl
fin which the B-team wonj. He also had a Ninth
Mrs. Rittenburg, alias "Aunt Ritty", was last seen
in, yes, believe it or not, a Library and not the old
Study Hall. Aunt Ritty is still trying to adjust to her
new found joy. Mr. Cole in his transition period,
gave Mrs. Rittenburg her wish.
Miss Round is the other half of the Second Grade
team. Having just completed her second year, she
has already proven herself as one of the backbones
of the primary grades.
Miss Russo still teaches reading, but now prima-
rily to the Lower Schoolers. With the arrival of Mr.
"O", Miss Russo has been able to focus on the
Lower School Reading Program.
Miss Rowan replaced Mrs. Seggerman as the First
Grade teacher in mid-term. She is just as capable of
handling the responsibility. She handled it very well,
considering she was not familiar with the boys and
they were not accustomed to her.
Mrs. Seggerman was also a very experienced
teacher who took over the other vacated first grade
position, which she unfortunately had to leave also
due to unknown circumstances. Mrs. Seggerman
replaced Mrs. Fuller. Mrs. Seggerman graduated
from Bryn Mawr College with a Masters degree.
Mr. Schroeter has taught English to the same class
for three years, it must be very frustrating to see the
same faces every year. He manages. Mr. Schroeter
has been an avid director for many the stage pro-

ductions and assemblies for three years, and hope-
fully will continue to do so.
Mr. Terrill is the other stalwart of the Fourth
Grade. With his consistent concern for all his pupils
it is necessary to camp-out in the faculty room on
many a weekend.
Mr. Tobolsky is learning the hard way after his
first year at Allen-Stevenson. His little charges that
resembled demons gave him a run for his money.
Nonetheless he handled it with the epitome of
Princeton style. He coached Varsity Soccer to its first
winning season ever, and also helped Mr. Wo-
jochiechowski coach 1-V Basketball.
Mr. Webb is continuing with his brilliant Science
program into next year, and hopefully many years
after. This year it included Biology and Physics. He
coached wrestling with Mr. julian.
Mr. Wojochiechowski took Mr. Nichols' place as
Offensive Coordinator on the Varsity Football team,
and in the classroom as Seventh Grade History

Varsity Soccer, JV Basketball
A Ferrara brother act managed the custodial re-
sponsibilities for the school this year. Younger
brother Straho departed the United States to handle
family business in Holland, so older brother Valerio
took over, performing with great capability. His
many tasks included opening roof drains stuffed
with broken hockey sticks, grafitti on bathroom
walls, gum on furniture, and lighting bars in the
gym. His cheery crew of Yugoslavian co-workers
always had a kind word for everybody but those
with muddy shoes from sports.
Faculty activities widened even more this year,
with the addition of Mr. Kersey's participation into
almost every sport and activity under the sun. New
cellist in Mr. Gauger's Orch, "Pablo" Kersey contin-
ued his operatic loves and became totally enthused
with weight-lifting and even got a bench press!
Unfortunately the Trustees did not manage to get
additonal room for the school during the '76-7 year.
Thus the faculty room remained overcrowded as
ever, as the ever-growing teacher group found it
increasingly difficult to find space for relaxing and
drinking hot cocoa.
This year several Upper School teachers did not
go out to afternoon field, staying in to give extra
help, manage punitive detention groups for home-
work shirkers, or direct plays. In addition, the mid-
morning roof periods became an Upper School fea-
ture. Heretofore morning study halls were con-
ducted with great formality, but now roof ball has
grown into a right rather than a privilege. Ho hump
wait til next year!
THE NINTH GRADE
NINTH GRADE this year was the second largest
in A-S history, numbering 19. Of these 19, not
one personality could be related directly with an-
other - although there were some who tried!
Charley Evans, David Hilliard and jimmy "Croc"
Krissel, while not always excelling in academics,
lthough working hard some of the timej lead many
athletic teams on to victory.
Bodey Brookins and john Shubert were the war
strategists of the class, spending many an evening
playing Diplomacy with Mr. Landis ialias joachim
von Doublecrossj. Brad Kulman and jeremy Ben-
Ami put their noses to the books, grinding out the
best marks in the class. Brad was also one of the
best A-S News Editors in recent years.
Brad Kabbash, commonly knows as Ahab, doled
our many a Granola bar to famished classmates and
teachers alike. Mike Hedges, originally from Ber-
muda, was one of the better students while looking
promising in wrestling and soccer. Timi joukowsky,
born in ltly tsicj, came to A-S academically but not
athletically behind. Now he has worked hard to
become a very good student and leader.
Peter Livingston, king of the sound effect, per-
formed well in athletics, and managed to get the
Unicorn out on time. Mark Tiedemann also per-
NINTH GRADE - back row: Brookins, Muller, Krissel,
Livingston, A. Zaloom, Tiedemann, middle row: Schubert,
Hilliard, Evans, Kabbash, Kulman, T. joukowsky, front row:
Armington, Vogelstein, R. Margolis, Hedges, Ben-Ami, Szor,
formed well in athletics, working hard throughout
the year despite his tendancy to annoy teachers.
Nick Armington and Lars Lofas, science nuts of the
class, were also the electricians for stage produc-
tions. An anonymous source reports that the two re-
wrote "Colliers Science Almanac" and disproved
Einstein's theory of relativity, all in one home room
Mario Muller could frequently be found playing
desk ball with jeremy. Called "strudel" by his peers,
he contributed diligently to publications and other
extra-curricular pursuits. Danny Szor was the actor
extraordinaire of the class, starring as Fydor in the
Ninth Grade Play and as Nanki-Poo in the G 84 S.
The well known cry of "But Sir!" meant that Robert
Margolis was nearby, his humor and consideration
for others made many a school day shorter.
Fred Vogelstein, whose academic prowess amazed
all this year, wore his trousers as though floods were
about to submerge New York. Andrew Zaloom,
"Leadhead" to his peers, came to A-S into eighth
Grade last year and gained immediate friendship.
His cries of "Aieeee!" have entertained many a class.
This Ninth Grade was certainly one of the most
interesting in years, and we hope these fellows
succeed in everything they do to or in prep school.

'I' HE '76-77 school year was greatly productive
for Upper School, under the guidance of the
largest faculty in A-S history. Staff and course addi-
tions were made which markedly changed the
school, and for the first time in anybody's memory,
science was taught to the entire Upper School. This
program was headed by Messrs. Webb and julian,
who taught introductory science courses to Grades
5 and 6, while IPS flntroductory Physical Sciencesl
was taught to Grades 7 81 8. The exact title of the
Ninth Grade course is presently unknown to the
senior Editors, but it was a biology course. Condi-
tions weren't the best for science, mainly because
the 5th 81 6th Graders had to be handled in Mr.
We-bb's homeroom, without proper facilities. Luckily
our stalwart professors did not electrocute them-
selves, nor did they flood the library!
In the English programs, changes were made for
boys who did not take foreign languages. Instead of
wasting time during interminable study halls, these
fellows had the opportunity of enlarging their Eng-
lish skills in Mr. Ors fnol Orzo fnol
well, skip it, Mr. O's class of English Enrichment.
Special skills, such as speed reading, composition,
etc., were taught to small groups several times per
week, usually in the Reading Room. As always,
veteran Schroeter fest. 19745, ancient campaigner
Landis fest. 18831, veteran Harlan fest. 19605 handled
the bulk of the English, although this year these
stalwarts were joined by Messers. Tobolsky and

The Math programs underwent a minor change,
as three extraordinarily gifted lads fright, Mrs. l.?J
underwent the rigors of Mrs. lohnson's accelerated
geometry course, started last year by Mr. iCool itll
Pariseau. ln 8th Grade, Algebra I and Algebra ll were
taught to the two tracks by Mrs. Rabbit ioops,
lohnsoni, Mr. O, and Mr. Pariseau.
The Language Dept. was completely overhauled
following the resignation of M. Trevant. Newcomer
Mr. English taught both French and Spanish, while
Mme. Gavrilowa handled the balance of the French
classes. Latin was done by Messrs. Cole 81 Suter,
giving the Roman tongue an administrative flair, as
it became the sixth course for many Upper Schoo-
lers ifour times per weekj. The Editors feel that with
the present rate of expansion in the Language Dept.,
by the year 2000 students at A-S will have to peti-
tion God for extra hours in the day to handle the
increased load - without staying in from field ihor-
Saving the best for last iright, Mr. Pariseau?i,
History continued its strong traditions. Currently the
past, present, and - maybe - the future is drilled,
lectured, ground into and saturated the students.
Messrs. Pariseau igr. 91, Harlan and Landis igr. 81,
Nichols igr. 7l and Harlan again igr. 65 were once
again the driving forces hehind the "you vill learn
approach to the past."
The Editors would also like to mention the large
unpaid staff of "Big Brothers" and tutors from 8th 84
9th Grades, these boys made it possible for many
smallfry in Lower School to better handle their
work, as well as enjoy school life better.
In any private school the curriculum is obviously
the most important facet of the institution ino joke,
Buehlerll, and this year A-S proved this. Not only
did the boys learn, but most were made to like the
process. The faculty can feel at ease contemplating
next year's Ninth Grade, if they could get by this
one, anything else is a treat by comparison!

Throughout the year the most prevalent item
coming up for student criticism was the newly-
minted "Honor Code." Despite its high-flung aspira-
tions, the Code still hasn't been taken seriously by
enough of the boys. The Editors would like to
caution their readers that in future years more stu-
dents ought to heed it if A-S is going to remain a
top quality school. Those desiring more information
on the code should contact Mr. Cole at the school,
or they may write to Bradley Kabbash ,at 333 East
Under the guidance of Mrs. Krasa the lunches
improved last year, along with the prodding of the
Student Council. Several polls and resultant meet-
ings with Mrs. K. were held, and as a result several
items were added to the A-S culinary bill of fare.
Orange juice, garlic bread, pizza and yogurt became
staples, although yogurt came only once before it
was adjudged too expensive by Mrs. Krasa. This year
also saw the introduction of breakfast food as a
substitute for luncheon food, that's right, French
toast made its appearance several times - to the
delight of the smallfry, the puzzlement of the Upper
Schoolers and the incredulity of the Faculty. Once it
was even served with chicken soup - as a pre-
ventative against the flu!
Over the long summer vacation several improve-
ments were made to the aging premises. New wall
mats and an attractive paint job lat lastly were
added to the gym-auditorium-lunch room facility,
but most important of all, another locker room was
built in the old lunch alcove. This was for 5th 84 6th
Graders, and it allowed the center of the old locker
room land boy, is it oldlj to be used as a weight
lifting and wrestling facility. The new locker room
also brought with it office space for joint Athletic
isicl Deerectas Kersey and Daly. As usual, the gym
floor was re-surfaced, only this time lines were
added for the national game of Poland: Foursquare.

As with any typical A-S year, new fads circulated
like the plague. "Star Trek" mania was attempted
once again by 8th Grader Matthew Peyton, along
with Barrett Lester and Andrew Glickman. This
group spent a great deal of time collecting buttons,
models, space ship plans, etc.
Again, skateboarding - now stronger than ever -
rerappeared. Led by Gregg Demirjian and a countless
host of others who spend more on skateboards than
GM spends on chauffered limousines, the skate-
boarders were less of a nuisance, as their boards
were forbidden items in school. Some boys were
superstars ilike Demirjianl, others were beyond
classification, but most were just intermediates.
Some were just plain unlucky, Peter Judson frac-
tured his skull while rolling at high speed, and
Danny Szor fractured his skateboard while standing
For the 93rd year the A-S dress code was unpopu-
lar, and severe challenges were raised by certain
Ninth Graders, who turned to the Salvation Army to
X X fi'-Ha..
clothe themselves. Despite an overall "Preppy" look,
there were substantial numbers who resisted socks
and shoes for bare feet and clogs. All this disregard
for the regulations obviously prompted Mr. Cole to
send home a stern note of warning in March ias
well as sending home a few boys who disregarded
Apart from an overnight popularity of the "Kiss"
group, the Ninth Graders began the classroom sport
of "Bounce Ball." He's-no-angel Bradley Kulman
had a strong hand in beginning this sport, which
uses Mr. Pariseau's desk as a court. Chucky Evans
provides the ball.

At Mr. CoIe's directive, each Upper School home-
room was required to put on its own play for Friday
assembly. The first attempt was by this year's out-
going Ninth Gradersg their was also the last attempt
of the year - again in the spring. The first extrava-
ganza was a hastily cobbled together skit of jimmy
Carter, while the second was a Faculty Meeting
tread Poker Gamel. The final disaster was a game
show. 7Bers followed, with yet another Ford-Carter
debate, sparkled with dialogue between Ycaza
Thrush iCarterl and Peter Briger fFordj. Then came a
skit depicting daily life at A-S, as seen through the
eyes of SB. Roger Sommers and Barrett Lester were
behind the newsdesk, as Andrew Glickman played
Walter Cronkite. The class also spoofed com-
mercials iwhat else?j in between the late-breaking
8A's presentation combined with Mr. Landis' an-
nual Book Fair presentation, as Adam Lesberg led a
cast of thousands who portrayed bookworms look-
ing for a home. Next was Mr. Kersey's imaginative
St. George and the Dragon, and if it weren't for
talented substitutes tthree leads got sick the day
beforel, the thing would have had to have been
cancelled. jimmy Sinclair, Eric Cliette, Larry Sweet,
and Tony Couloucoundis were some of the stars, as
St. George and the Dragon got together in the end.
A few days later Mr. Schroeter's 7A group put on
two amusing detective numbers. Neil Bader iwho
forgot his lines and then forgot to look in his
opened briefcase for themll, jesse Cohen, Steven
Metcalfe, Tony Green, et al, will never match the
standards of Sherlock Holmes or George Raft, but
everybody in the packed audience had a great deal
Certainly one of the most memorable aspects of
the year was in the general attitude of the boys
themselves. After a second consecutive undefeated
football season, the first winning soccer season ever,
a near miss at the League Basketball title and - as
usual - outstanding lacrosse prospects, there was
understandibly a tremendous amount of school
spirit. Mr. Cole and his well-known "Steeeeeven-
son" cheer were heard on many a sideline, while
the coaches exhorted their charges on to greater
and greater achievements. Mr. Nichols returned
from Sabbatical to provide even more enthusiasm as
Allen-Stevenson athletic fortunes were once again
on top. In addition, there was considerable turnout
for extra-curricular activities and plays - especially
among the Ninth Graders. Gnly at the Ninth Grade
plays Cfour one-acters staged by Mr. Landisj was
there a poor turnout - this time from the parents,
as the boys were especially disappointed that more
people didn't show up to enjoy the fruits of their
The 8th Grade, often mentioned as the most well-
rounded in the school, continued its "character"
during the year. Adam Lesberg consistantly per-
fumed the classroom, while Leon "the Lip" Kinlock

never stopped talking, and neither did Billy Judson.
Although small in overall physical size, the 8th
Grade probably has the best collection of athletes in
the school, and certainly Glenn Robinson stands out
at the head of the list. Who could forget his elec-
trifying touchdown runs as he amassed thousands
of yards rushing? john Gilmour and Greg Demirjian,
on the other hand, have taken their athletic endea-
vours into the field of skateboarding, while Wee
Willie Duryea has won the gold pin award for
annoying Mr. Schroeter. Roger Sommers' rock group
has at last begun to make money, while Ralph
Whitmore has been well, Ralph, we just can't
write that here.
8Aers start their day be having a "Big Matt" attack
lthey jump on Matthew Peyton, trying to apply

tions, along with his "goombah" Timothy Ruenitz.
Having a truly productive year, the class of '78
guarantees it'll be one of the greatest.
Now, for the Seventh Graders - who came in all
sizes and shapes this year, ranging from 4'6" to 5'8".
Some were -- frankly - identical, like the Papa-
zoglou twinsg others gigantic like Charles Brush,
others merely eccentric like Whitney Ransick or

Chris Miller spent most of his time on stage
productions, trying to be Mr. Schroeter's left AND
right hand man, while Sandy Trippe made a game
out of cutting field. Tony Green cranked out innu-
merable bloody-minded cartoons, while others who
shall not be named plastered odd-ball magazine
Cut-Outs on Mr. Wojo's blackboard.
When Chris Miller wasn't illuminating the stage,
Winfield Henry was, and he probably spent an extra
two weeks worth of time in the building, working
on almost every show of the year. Bowlegged Larry
Siskind invaded the school darkroom early in the
year, and proved invaluable to the publications
staff, although it took the staff almost three months
to convince Chris Allen to write a story for the A-S
News. Clinton "the Rabbit" johnson was the envy
of many, with three varsity letters the started for
hockey 81 lacrosse! Only braces on his teeth came to
mar his perfect rabbit-like appearance. Leading stu-
dent was quiet, erudite jesse Cohen, one of the few
mortals to ever get an A-plus on one of Mr. Nichols'
hour tests. Although he was often victimized by
detention, equipment freak Ycaza Thrush passed
with flying colors, as did Neil Bader, sixth man on
the basketball team.
Certainly Whitney Ransick was the class eccentric,
his "Argument Booth" at Carnival was unparalleled
for foul language and insults - and won the prize
for the best booth! Newcomer Allty Parkinson
found a new home far from Paris ffrom whence he
camel, and Peter Briger was forced to suffer through
the year with an unmentionable nickname which
even some of the faculty persisted in using. Unfor-
tunately 7B homeroom teacher Mr. Wojo had a
class allergic to spring rollers, and continually Mr.
Nichols would be found raving about yet another
broken map or shade.

If 7th Grade could best be characterized as a class
of students, then 6th Grade could best be termed a
class of jocks. Although such hard-workers as jonny
Potter, Tonio DeVido lpermant assistant teacherl,
and leffrey Oestericher brought smiles to the faces
of all their teachers, it was Colin Hagen's gang of
athletes who brought smiles to the faces of the
Hagen, who believes he is Bert Jones, lr., led his
cohorts Misha loukowsky, Marcus Henderson and
Kevin Keels to great athletic exploits on the football
field, although their basketball fortunes were some-
what less than expected.
"Fogwell" Fogel from Greenwich proved a wel-
come addition, although he couldn't come close to
jeremy Levy for being the class character. Mark
Browning, tallest of the tall fellows, continued to
write amusing stories for his English teacher and all
who cared to read them, while Peter Judson and
Roger Raines remained on stage throughout the
entire performance - namely, the year. Scotty Mat-
tox went to field for two months wearing boots,
while Stuart Thompson completed the deal of the
century - suckering an unfortunate 7th Grader into
buying a 5-year-old lacrosse stick for S17! Hrivnak 84
O'Connell were once again inseparable, while Chris
Leo was once again - well, we're not having any of
that kind of language here! Cha-wen Sze continued
as the class brain fand trumpet virtuosol but it was
Nicky McKhann who had a smile for everybody -
including Bobby Haag!
L OWER SCHOOL featured many new faculty
faces this year, the second of Mariana Leigh-
ton's reign over grades 1-4. Two new faces graced
first grade in September: Mrs. Seggerman and Miss
Halsey. Mrs. Seggerman was formerly a director and
head teacher at an extended school program, as
well as having taught at Bank St. School, New
Lincoln School, and P.S. 166. Regretably Mrs. Segger-
man had to leave at Christmastime, but she was
quickly replaced by Mrs. Rowan, formerly of the
Park Avenue Christian Church Day School. The oth-
er first grade section was well handled by Miss
Halsey, who had formerly taught at the Brick
Church School and at a public school in West-
Another new arrival from Park Avenue Christian
Qnow we'll tell you that's where Mrs. Leighton came
fromj was second grade teacher Mrs. Andrejevic,
who teamed with the always colorful Ms. Round to
lead the second grade smallfry out of the darkness
into the light.
Once again veteran third grade leader Mrs.
Bounds returned ther 22nd yearly to team with Mrs.
Fusco. Reportedly Mrs. Bounds set a record for
having visitors spend the day in her class, she
petitioned Mr. Nichols for part of his salary as
Again Messrs. Grassi and Terrill headed the fourth
grade, and apart from getting their charges ready to
face the rigors of Upper School, they ran back-
gammon tournaments, took trips, did plays and
even posted the day in sports on Mr. Grassi's door.

Mrs. Leighton, former Assistant Director of Park
Avenue Christian Church Day School, became head
of Lower School in the fall of 1975, and to-date her
biggest contribution has been to see that her teenie-
weenies get substantially more time for art and
shop, previously denied them because there was no
morning time to work them into the program. Now
they get their sports one morning one day a week,
thus in the afternoons they can be turned over to
Ms. Kopple and Mr. Meyendorff at 1:30.
The curriculum in the first grade consisted of
teaching the little uns the three R's of readin', 'ritin'
and 'rithmatic, First grade, naturally, must concen-
trate on these learning skills before pushing on to
other things. Here, number concepts are most im-
portant, and several ways and approaches are used.
One of these is with the colored Cuisiniere Rods,
which help build relative sense of number values.
In second grade, daily life revolves around learn-
ing sentence structure and grammar. Here the boys
often write stories about themselves and other inter-
esting life experiences. Once a week the boys get a
library period, where they are taken by Mrs. Ritten-
berg. They always have a ball, taking over Aunt
Ritty's office, as well as enjoying her new selections
for them. They also get the opportunity to learn
library skills and the Dewey Decimal System fwe
Twice a week Lower Schoolers get read stories by
Mrs. Leighton, who generally selects some thrillers
to make the little fellers relax after a hard day's
work. Although there are no fireplaces in the build-

Artistic merits are also exposed in home rooms,
where boys provide a great part of the decorations
with drawings and designs made both in their own
rooms and in art classes, although the best of the art
class work is often taken by Ms. Kopple for the
hallway frames fwhich have done a great deal to
brighten up the school buildingj. Mrs. Bounds'
room acquired a great fish tank this year, so every
morning the boys had something to do before
classes began - clean the tank and feed the min-
An added attraction to third grade is the chance
to take up an instrument, under the direction of
Maestro Gaugerino and his talented staff of musi-
cians. Maestro usually keeps a boy in from field one
afternoon and tests him out on a representative
variety of instruments, finally selecting one type for
which the boy has demonstrated ability. No enthu-
siastic volunteer is ever denied the opportunity of
playing in the Orch - so long as he keeps up his
practice reports! Of course Orch membership is
almost like taking an additional course.
Under Generals Bounds and Fusco, the third gra-
ders greatly expand their curriculum, especially in
their writing fthey are also given cursive writing at
this pointy They especially enjoy their book Pio-
neers of America, and to get on the jimmy Carter
bandwagon, the boys are growing peanut plants -
doubtless from Plains, Ga.
Although next year will see a reorganization of A-
S whereby the fourth grade will become part of a 4-

the big fish in the Lower School pond. Ram-
bunctious and enthusiastic, these charges of Messrs.
Grassi 84 Terrill heightened their math skills by gam-
bling - in incessant backgammon tournaments. By
calculating the odds on each roll of the dice they
increase their multiplication skills, too. In English,
the fourth graders write book reports lare you ready,
Mr. Landis?l and begin to learn formal grammar.
For the second year in a row Upper School sci-
ence teacher Mr. Webb has generously given of his
time to introduce the smallfries of Lower School to
science. This is clearly one of the most fascinating
times of their week, Mr. Webb tries to give them an
introduction to laboratory work, and they respond
enthusiastically. Mr. Webb is planning to expand
the science program into the lower grades, espe-
cially in the next years as he will be in charge of the
newly-created Middle School. This year the main
focus of his time with Lower Schoolers was astrono-
my and geology.
Of course the music program, under Mrs. Schrade,
is another favorite with the small fries. Here Mrs.
Schrade takes charge twice a week in the music
room, where she teaches group singing of popular
tunes. She also instructs the kids in music appreci-
ation, giving them basic concepts of symphonic and
operatic music as well. Mrs. Schrade also leads the

during their plays, especially at Christmas and
Thanksgiving extravaganzas. Beginning in third
grade the boys also come under the direction of
Maestro Gauger as well. He begins by teaching the
boys to play the recorder - and giving them re-
quired homework as well! Of course this doesn't
always go down well with those who are totally
tone deaf, but it does help generate enthusiasm and
talent for the Orchestra.
Lower School dramatic productions are, at least,
colorful, and are long-standing favorites of Upper
Schoolers, who get treated to Thanksgiving, Christ-
mas and Washington's Birthday - while completing
their French assignments. Of course Headmaster Mr.
Cole has become a standing fixture at Christmas
productions, - as Santa Claus, of course. Mr. Terrill's
fourth grade class put on a play about a king who
could not stop sneezing, after years of unsucessful
remedies, he was cured. One day the kingdom's
finest chef baked a pie which was given to a special
pie thrower who threw the pie into an innocent
bystander QCharley Evansj. The king had never
laughed so hard, and thus his side splitting cured

This year's annual off-Broadway Thanksgiving pro-
duction marked another fine Lower School produc-
tion, chiefly performed before an audience of either
mothers and proud grandparents. Consisting of
some third and fourth graders, the production con-
sisted of poetry readings and songs, under the direc-
tion of Mr. Grassi and Mrs. Bounds, with help from
Mrs. Schrade. The short poems were mostly student
efforts about Thanksgiving, here's an example of
one verse: "Oh, how I hate this kind of year! So do
me a favor Cobble, Cobble! And eat some deer. For
if you don't I feel the end is near." - author
unknown. Another example: "Thanksgiving is the
time, uh, uh, of, pfooey, I can't think of a rhyme!"
Well, so much for those efforts. There were several
nondescript songs to soothe restless Upper Schoo-
Iers and round out the program.
The Christmas program was done by the second
graders, and they did a fine job. The play was about
a boy who was so bad that Santa didn't leave
anything either in his stocking or under the Christ-
mas tree. This fellow was so sad that he decided to
go all the way to the North Pole and plead for
forgiveness from Santa. On his journey, he met
many animals and treated them all with great care.
As every little boy knows, Santa scratched his head,

looked into his crystal ball and discovered how he
had changed into such a good little boy. Upon
arrival at the Pole, Santa gave the boy many gifts,
and as usual, a Merry Xmas was had by all.
The day was highlighted by the entire Lower
School singing Christmas carols and a few originals
written and conducted by Mrs. Schrade.
The "Big Brother" program was in effect again this
year, and it enabled many smallfries to gain self
confidence by talking their troubles out to older
boys in grades 7-9. Some of the outstanding big
brothers were Charley Evans fwho discussed many a
colorful item with Lower Schoolersj, Bradley Kab-
bash fwho described his unusual lifestyle in the
world of make-believej, Dean Landis fwho wrote
this story and managed to teach mathmatics very
well to his five eager pupilsj, Clinton johnson iwho
instructed in slap shooting and imitations of Frank
Ursol, and Peter Briger iwho instructed in matters of
skin carel. Of course there were many other stal-
warts, but space does not permit the Editors to
Art and Shop programs in the afternoons once a
week instructed the little fellows in the proper
techniques of painting and drawing, focusing on the
basics of color and tools, respectively. Second gra-
ders were continuously filling the second floor
showcase with ever-changing projects of consid-
erable quality. In addition the boys were also ex-
posed to other mediums of art, like papier mache.

V ARSITY FOOTBALL fortunes enjoyed an unde-
feated season for the second consecutive year,
as the Unicorn gridmen emerged with a 6-O-2 record
and a share of the League title falong with Buckleyi.
The Blue 84 Gold defeated cross-town rivals Trinity
and Collegiate, tied Buckley and Brooklyn's Poly
Prep, while scoring easy wins over Harvey and Eng-
lewood in out-of-town matches.
The season opened under the direction of Mr.
Landis, back again for his 84th season of handling
A-S gridiron fortunes. Mr. Nichols was gone off on
sabbatical, so his spot in guiding the offense was
taken by newcomer Mr. Wojo, a former Columbia
University associate of Roy Parker.
The first game saw the Unicorns travel to Katonah
to take on usually tough Harvey School. Fortunately
the foes were suffering through a lean year, going
down to a 26-0 shellacing before the potent A-S
offense. On the third play from scrimmage tailback
Glenn Robinson sliced through for a 50-yard TD,
and the rout was on. Robinson soon thereafter ran
for a 60-yard TD sweep to post six more points, he
amassed a total of 210 yards for the day!
Meanwhile fullback David Hilliard, halfback Leon
Kinloch, running back Adam Lesberg and quarter-
back Clifton York were accounting for an additional
14 points and over 100 yards more offense. The
defense played a fine game, begrudging Harvey a
net of only 15 yards total offense, as jimmy "the
Croc" Krissel anchored a team of thoroughly bad-

The first home game of the season was played
against an inexperienced Dalton team on a cool,
sunny afternoon on Randall's Island. Quickly the
Unicorns struck as a 75-yard scoring drive was cap-
ped by York's 15-yard pass to Robinson for the first
score. Glenn had himself quite a day, as he was
involved in four more TDs and ran for a total of 275
yards. All the subs played in this eighth grade game,
and the Blue 81 Gold made off with a 31-0 triumph.
Competition was somewhat stiffer the following
week as the squad faced a tough Collegiate team in
an exciting game played in atrocious conditions on
Collegiate's pasture fthe word "field" is in-
applicable herel which was more than half under-
water! During the first half A-S did an inordinate
amount of fingernail-biting, as Collegiate scored
But buoyed by fine offensive line blocking in the
second half, the Blue 84 Gold tallied on another of
Robinson's by-now patented runs. Lesberg pushed
over the two points for the conversion to give the
Unicorns the win - but not without anxiety, as
Collegiate finished the game out of time inside the
The next contest was against Englewood's ninth
grade team, played on a raw, windy day in New
lersey. Although the Blue 84 Gold won 16-0, the
game was much closer than the score indicated.
Following a long march, Hilliard scored through a
gigantic hole made by llnemen Chucky Evans, Brad
Kulman, and Timi loukowsky. The conversion suc-
ceeded, and A-S led 8-0. But then Unicorn fortunes
dimmed, as Englewood began to move the ball and
also cut off the A-S ground game. ln the third
quarter, Hilliard suffered a shoulder separation, and
was lost for the season. When a long interception
runback threatened to knot the score late in the
final quarter, only a great goal line stand preserved
the victory Qwhich was soon "iced" by a 96-yard
Robinson TD run as the clock ran out.l

The team was sky-high for the Buckley game on
November 4th, especially as the boys knew it would
decide the League championship. Despite the loss
of Hilliard, fullback Lesberg had been doing well, so
it was thought a good inside game could com-
pliment Robinson's outside speed. Unfortunately
things never go as planned, and despite gallant
efforts, center Robert Buehler could not handle the
gigantic Buckley middle guard, so the Unicorns
were stopped cold up the middle - especially with-
out Hilliard. ln the second quarter Buckley scored,
following a long march, the conversion succeeded,
and the Unicorns were trailing 8-0.
After several exchanges, Brad Kabbash shocked
Buckley with a 68-yard quick kick on third down. In
a hole and getting deeper, the Blue 81 White at-
tempted to punt from their eight, facing a 4th and
20 situation. The snap sailed over the center's head,
deep into the end zone. End Peter Livingston was
about to grab the desperate Buckley punter when a
referee blew his whistle to signal a safety, thinking
the ball had already gone out the back of the end
zone. End of play, two points for A-S.
Wrong! From off the Buckley bench came Coach
Trauth, author of many an altercation and act of
gamesmanship in the past. Trauth argued that the
field was improperly marked, that the ball had not,
in fact, gone out of the end zone. Thus the "zebra"
had whistled prematurely. Faced with this protest,
the refs agreed to re-play the play! Zounds! the
center passed another sky-ball to the punter, who
this time found "the handle" and was downed on
the four. With over a minute left in the first half, A-
S scoring chances looked good. Wrong! After two
questionable penalty calls, the refs failed to stop the
clock, so time ran out with the Unicorns having first
The second half again featured the stalemate of
the first until Robinson at last broke away for a 60-
yard TD, followed by York's conversion. So ended
the championship game, knotted at 8. But we all
know who really won, don't we?
Following the Buckley disappointment, the eight
graders took vengeance on a weak Trinity team,
romping 32-0, as Robinson set an A-S record, scor-
ing five TDs and running for 310 yards! But Unicorn
thoughts were already set on the next and last
opponent, mean, rough Poly Prep. In short order the
game came to resemble the "Late, Late Show." The
hitting was truly ferocious, as were the refs ithree
Robinson TDs called back by out-of-position ze-
braslj. Poly Prep tallied once, and A-S trailed 6-0 at
the half. Then in the fourth quarter, as the exhaused
Unicorns were about to fold before their bigger
opponents, Robinson struck again on a march quar-
terbacked by tiny reserve Clinton Johnson, who hit
Glenn with a short pass. He legs did the rest, as the
Blue 84 Gold salvaged a tie and an undefeated
season. Later, Coach Landis would term this Poly
Prep team as the toughest opponent any A-S squad
had ever faced. Few would argue otherwise.

- his year the l.V. football team had hopes of
I, having an undefeated season. The team almost
succeeded, 'falling' to Buckley in a heartbreaking tie
in the third and final game. The outstanding season
was due to hours of hard work, as each day coaches
McCleary and Hutchison would lead the team in a
series of exercises. Coach McCleary would then
begin drilling the offense in assorted running and
passing plays, such as, a flanker left sweep, a sure
gain, to Peter judson.
Simultaneously with the offensive drills, Clay Hut-
chison drilled the defensive squad against the
ground game and in pass protection. For the re-
mainder ofthe day the team would scrimmage. This
provided an opportunity for the offense and de-
fense to put their skills to work. As a result, the
team headed for the buses very tired. In the end,
though, it all paid off. When the Unicorn's first
game rolled around, they were very well prepared.
Quarterback, Colin lBert jonesl Hagen, ran the ball
into the end zone for a score to make it 8-O. Later in
the game Colin scored again as a result of a beau-
tiful block by Peter fSuper Marvinl Judson on the
Buckley linebacker, A-S won 16-0.
A week later, A-S took on Buckley for a second
time, but without stars Misha lowkowsky and Peter
ludson. A-S shrugged off the losses and went on to
win again, with outstanding performances from Lar-
ry Creer and Duke Thrush. In the third fand ques-
tionablel final game, A-S tied the Blue and White 8-
8. AII in all, a fine showing by the l.V. football team.
Coaches McCleary and Hutchison are looking for-
ward to many more undefeated seasons in the near
F OR the first time in A-S history the Varsity
Soccer team had a winning season, posting an
overall 6-4-4 record against all opponents. Led by a
pair of eighth graders, Dean Landis and lames Shee-
han, the booters were coached by first year teacher
Mr. Tobolsky, former soccer captain at Princeton.
The season opener came on the rocky field of the
Cathedral School - in the rain, no less! Despite
many close calls, only Sheehan's beautiful second
quarter corner kick dented the Cathedral nets, as
the Unicorns triumphed 'I-0.
The second contest was against an unknown op-
ponent, the Berkeley Institute of Brooklyn. It proved
to be a romp as the foes could hardly ever move the
ball out of their own end of the field against the A-S
first string. Landis, Sheehan - and then Sheehan
again on a beautiful pass from lacobs - scored to
allow the seventh grade substitutes to play the
entire second half in the 3-0 win.
Landis scored the hat trick against the third oppo-
nent, Dwight York, ably supported by fine play from
Sheehan and halfback Robert Margolis. Goalie Rob-
erto DeVido had an easy time of it as the Unicorns
recorded their second shutout.
Defeat struck for the first time at the hands of
Dalton, who had an outstanding, unstoppable play-
er who tallied three times. Sheehan's score was not
enough, as the Blue 81 Gold lost, 3-1. Overconfident,
the eighth grade squad went into the Day School
game expecting an easy win. Playing poorly for
much of the game, the Unicorns could do no better
than a 0-0 tie.
Things turned up in the next game against super
soccer power St. Bernard's. Completely dominating

this time over cross-town rival Collegiate. Sheehan
scored the winning marker, assisted by Landis. De-
fense continued as the Unicorn watchword as the
team shut out its next opponent, too - only this
time the offense could not score and the Dwight-
Englewood game ended in an 0-0 tie.
The next contest saw the Unicorns dump Browing
in an eighth grade game, highlighted by the un-
precedented feat of seeing a fullback tally three
times! Former Browningite jimmy lacobs came back
to haunt his former schoolmates as he put on a true

ha.nds to his face, and the referee, thinking he had

against Trinity which ended in an O-0 tie, followed
by a disappointing 1-1 tie with Town School in a
game A-S should have won handily. The last two
matches were away against Harvey and Rippowam,
where the Unicorns succumbed to bigger and more
skilled foes 5-0 and 4-0, Nevertheless it was a fine
season, and the team was greatly indebted to Mr.
Tobolsky for his fine coaching.

V SOCCER suffered through a dish-
eartening season, winning only one
game while losing five and tieing one. The
lone victory came over Browning, as Edmund
Kleefield scored on a penalty kick.
This year the large squad was organized into
A and B teams, and in many instances both
teams played simultaneous games with their
opponents. Some of the finer A team players
throughout the season were Edmund Kleefield,
Marc Blair, and Greg Zuckert at forwards, while
Eric Cliette and Tonio DeVido starred at de-
fense and blocked many enemy shots.
Opposition was provided by Buckley
itwicel, St. Bernard's itwicej, Browning itwicel,
The Day School Qtwicei, and Town School.
Overall the opposition seemed considerably
stronger that A-S, despite the large turnout for
soccer. Next year Coach Daly hopes to have
more seasoned regulars for his A team, as well
as to bring the season record up to a winning
one. With the considerable fifth grade talent
this year, there seems little doubt that he will
do just that. As most will still be in middle
school, the lVs will lose very few players to the
Varsity, as so often happens.

A FTER a slow start, Varsity Basketball fortunes
looked up the point where the team found
itself in a final game against Trinity, competing for
the League championship. Unfortunately the Uni-
corn hoopsters did not quite make it, losing by a
mere two points after leading by one at halftime. It
wasn't quite the desired finish, but it did exceed
almost everybody's pre-season expectations.
Coach Kevin Daly worked with a small nucleus of
very talented players, supported by a rotating cast of
"extras," depending on sickness, detention and foul
trouble. Center Glenn Robinson, forward Leon Kin-
loch and guard Danny Rodriguez composed the
heart of the team, and these stalwarts were usually
supported by Robert Buehler, Barrett Lester, Neil
Bader, and Timi loukowsky -the only ninth grader.
The season opener against Lenox was dropped to
a one-man show who bucketed 31 points in the
second half, but there was little excuse for dropping
the next contest to St. Bernard's, 63-62. With Kin-
loch out on detention, Rodriguez and Robinson
simply could not match the entire 98th Street team.
Next came the giants of Buckley, who averaged
5'11" with skills to match. With only one hobbling
ninth grader, the Unicorns were no match and the
game was a joke: humiliation on the home court,

Next, on the eighth grade schedule, came the
home court contest with an untested squad from
the Day School. Again the Blue 84 Gold completely
dominated the action up and down the floor, and
Robinson 1205, Rodriguez 1293 and Kinloch U73 de-
stroyed the opposition so that the subs could pour
Soon thereafter Dalton became the next victim, as
Kinloch, Robinson, Rodriguez, Inc. rallied in the
second half to pull out 45-35 win. The next day
came the re-match with an improved Day School,
but the Big Three came through with a shattering
total of 68 points to ice an easy victory. '
Once again R, R 81 K got together to handle a
scrappy Collegiate squad in an important League
contest. Scoring 73 points, R, R 84 K were simply too
much for the westiders.
With plenty of League victories under their belts
the Unicorns confronted an unbeaten Trinity team
for the League championship - to be played in the
bandbox which passes for a homecourt gymnasium
on 78th Street.
With the gym and stage packed to well over
capacity the Unicorns tapped off against the pow-
erful lions. After a loose beginning which saw the
Lions spurt out to a 13-'I lead - largely on the play
of one incredible Earl Monroe - type-shooter - the
Blue 81 Gold rallied to lead by one, 36-35 at the
intermission. Robinson had netted 18 points and
Kinloch 12. Eager fans screamed for westside blood,
tasting yet another championship after football's
recent triumphs. Only the very knowledgeable wor-
ried, Rodriguez already had three fouls.
Then, with Evans and Croc rudely beating Mr.
Gauger's drum on the stage, the fans raised their
voices Ui to fever pitch - but to no avail, as Trinity
once again pulled out a 13-point lead on the cold-
shooting Unicorns. Undaunted, Robinson and Kin-
loch scrambled, twisted and very nearly everything
- elsed their way back into contention - even
though a shattered Rodriguez had fouled out. Trail-
ing by only one point with over a minute to play, an
unfortunate A-S backcourt man iwhose name shall
not be mentioned herei coughed up the ball to an
eager Trinitarian. That proved to be the game, as a
last-ditch half-court heave by Kinloch rolled off the
rim, leaving Trinity with the 58-56 win and the
Despite their heartbreaking loss, the squad finish-
ed out the season in fine fettle, thrashing their last
three opponents. St. Bernard's paid dearly for its
earlier victory, and Cathedral and Town also bit the
dust. lt was a fine way for Coach Daly to end his
second season of varsity ball.
Next year the squad looks forward to a powerful
ninth grade team, as all its starters return to terrorize
their foes. R, R 8r K should be next to unstoppable,
so Mr. Daly should schedule lots of ninth grade
WRESTLING began its second year at Allen-Ste-
venson this fall, and although the team failed
to win a meet, much enthusiasm was generated by
a host of eager matmen, led by Messrs. Webb and
julian. The program improved in leaps and bounds,
as Billy Judson, Robert Raines and Richard july
became true standouts.
The first match of the year was at St. David's,
where only ludson managed to win his match. Next
came Buckley, and although the team still lost bad-
ly, four matches were won, by ludson, Raines, je-
remy Levy and David Hilliard fborrowed from the
hockey team on non-skating daysj.
On February 2nd the boys journeyed to the Dal-
ton gym, where both lon and jeremy Levy outlasted
their foes. Luis Ubinas, Chaz Greef and Timmy
Ruenitz all demolished their opponents, but al-
though the Unicorns came close, the final was
Dalton 42, A-S 30. This was to be the Blue 84 Gold's
best showing of the year.
A week passed, and then the team travelled 'cross
town to grapple with Collegiate. Astoundingly, three
A-S losers were called winners after their matches
because it was discovered their opponents had
been over the permissible weight limits! leremy Levy
again excelled, winning with a quick pin, although
A-S lost the match by a comfortable margin.
The following day the boys traveled up to Kato-
nah, where they faced the formidable matmen of
the Harvey School. Only two Unicorns won their
matches, but nevertheless Coach Webb termed this
"the finest hour" of A-S wrestling iremarking, no
doubt, as to the Churchillian origin of his remarksl.
Next came the re-match with Buckley, where only
Brad Kulman won his match and one notable A-S
stalwart Qalso borrowed from the hockey teaml was
disqualified for allegedly biting his opponent.
Certainly one of the strongest points of this year's
mat season was the adoption of new conditioning
methods, along with weightlifting. This latter ex-
ercise was ushered in by Mr. Daly, with great assist-
ance from Messrs. Kersey and English. With great
enthusiasm shown by Chucky Evans and David Hill-
iard, who could resist building his biceps, etc., on
the new bench press? New weights abounded, and
were hidden away in the boiler room until an
unsympathetic and beaurocratic boiler inspector or-
dered their removal for some strange reasons.
Next year it is hoped that some more permanent
wrestlingfweight room can be found, especially in
view of Allen-Stevenson's planned expansion into
the 128 E. 78th Street premises next door. Already

facilities, and the addition of a weight room would

L ACK of size and depth made the '76-'77 season
a disappointingly long one for the Unicorn
hockey players. Despite some talented smaller play-
ers like wings Clifton York and Clinton "Rabbit"
johnson, the Blue 84 Gold could muster only two
large starters: center David Hilliard fwho also fre-
quently played a shift at defense when the second
line was outj and defenseman Charlie Evans. And,
although he played with great courage and made
many tough saves, goaltender Adam Lesgerg's total
lack of experience showed through on many occa-
sions. For example, Adam had never even played in
a full rink scrimmage before facing the Harvey var-
sity fwho strafed him for nine goalsj.
Despite Coach Nichol's repeated pleas for more
ice time over recent years, the usual twice-a-week
routine remained in effect, so all the boys could do
on non-skating days was to work out in Central
Park. There, under the direction of Messrs, Nichols
and English, the boys did leg strengthening drills,
many adapted from the Russian training patterns of
Tarasov or no Tarasov, the Unicorns could have
used a few players with CCCP on their jersies as
they faced the always tough Harvey varsity away at
Katonah. Scoring four quickies, Harvey never
worked up a sweat in handing the Unicorns a 9-4
defeat. Bright spots were York's two goals, Hilliards
solo, and second line center Greg Demirjian's tally.
Next A-S faced a super tough Greenvale squad.
Playing perhaps its best game of the year, the Uni-
corns lost by only 5-3 as Hilliard was a tower of
strength scoring twice. Unfortunately the return
match was no repeat performance, and the Locust
Valley lads waltzed to an 8-O triumph as they played

their first lines even though far ahead. The sea-
son's final Varsity match came against Rippowam,
and while the Unicorns got generally solid defen-
sive work from Evans and Willie Duryea, it was not
enough to stem the Rippowam tide. Hilliard and
Rabbit tallied as A-S lost 4-2.
Certainly the bright spot on the season was the 2-
2-1 seventh grade excursion to the Harvey Tourna-
ment, where Rabbit put on a one-man MVP show
not to be believed. Supported by brother Brian
"Shampoo" johnson and Peter Briger, Clinton led all
scorers with 13 goals and 2 assists while also playing
defense when the second line was on ice. Gallantly
jimmy Sinclair, Larry Siskind, and Stuart Thompson
- supported by Tony Couloucoundis at wing and
jeff lenoure at defense - bought time for the first
string to rest. Rabbit, however, never left the ice
except for a few brief stays in the penalty box! St.
Bernards and King School were slaughtered, while
eventual tournament winner Rumsey Hall was tied,
F IFTH and sixth grade basketball had set the
goal of an undefeated season for the lV team,
as Director Kevin Daly had promised the boys a
round of free pizzas if the season's record was
unblemished. Unfortunately this did not come to
pass, but the squad did have a winning record, and
Coaches Tobolsky and Wojo were most pleased
with the outcome.
The team featured two hot-shooting guards, Colin
Hagen and Craig Kallman, coupled with two for-
wards who often hit well from the baseline, Duke
Thrush and Kevin Keels. The first game came against
St. Bernard's however, and underscored the team's
shortcomings: defense and rebounding. Although
the Unicubs hit for 46 points, St. Bernard's scored 70
in what must have been the highest scoring 1V game
Next came the Day School game, which finished
regulation time tied at 19-19. Overtime was agreed
upon, but a tired A-S team could not hold on,
losing 27-24. The next game boosted Unicub egos,
as Cathedral was drubbed 51-5 and all the subs got
to play. With the starters well-rested, the team
whipped Browning 47-41, in a game not nearly as
close as the scoremight indicate fall the subs
playedl. The season closed on a high note: a 52-1
drubbing of hapless Birth Wathen, as everybody
fattened his season scoring totals.

S URPRISINGLY enough, the Varsity Baseball
team enjoyed a fine season, creating problems
for over-rated opponents. Because of the lack of
ninth graders fonly threej, the talent was made up
by underclassmen, who made up the bulk of the
team. Coaches Landis and Wojochiechowski -
Wojo for short - looked forward to an entertaining
The first contest was against Buckley, the Uni-
corns' traditional rivals. Ace moundman Timi lou-
kowsky pitched a strong game, allowing only 2
earned runs, but the A-S bats couldn't touch Buck-
ley pitching, while falling apart in the field to make
numerous errors. This game proved that batting
practice ought to be included in each day's work-
The official season opener came at home against
Trinity last year's League champions. Sparkling fiel-
ding capped with a double play got starting pitcher
Colin Hagen off the ropes in the first inning, but
Trinity's southpaw also retired A-S batters through
the first three innings. Two runs scored by Trinity in
the fourth and fifth proved to be significant as time
ran out. The baffled squad bowed in defeat 2-O.
April 27, found the eigth grade again on foreign
turf playing Browning. But this time they went
home with their heads high. Apparently the oppos-
ing pitcher didn't have very much stuff that day as
everybody hit, stole, caught, walked, drove in runs,
and managed to put runs on the board, 23-3. Stars
of the game were Charles Greef, who contributed
three hits and drove in eight, standby Adam Lesberg
fborrowed from the lacrosse teamj played a con-
sistent game behind the plate while contributing
two hits to the offensive. Misha loukowsky, whose
incredible leaping, backhand stab a la Craig Nettles,
won him the award for best fielding play of the
Barret Lester played his finest game as he lashed
out a beautiful double, while Robert Buehler, Danny
Rodriguez and centerfielder Neil Bader played very
well. Hagen picked up his first victory as everybody
played a fine overall game. The Unicorns enjoyed
an excellent afternoon on 96th St. and Central Park.
The first home game of the season pitted the
eighth graders against Collegiate. Big righthander
jimmy lacobs, who gave up an important
confirmation practice to be there, pitched very well,
even though his eighth grade teammates very much
supported. Seven earned runs crossed the pate as
the Unicorns did not even get to second base. After
putting down the orange and white, 1, 2, 3, in the
third, A-S started to roll with clutch base hits from
M. loukowsky, Lesberg, Green, Rodriguez and a
steady eye from Bader. Though two runs crossed the
plate the Unicorns still trailed by five. Scoring their
eighth unearned run in sixth, the game was out of
reach as A-S came close only to come up empty
The spring baseball season will not go down in
history as a championship or excellent season, but it
will go down as a preparation for some baseball
teams in the future. Sophomores M. loukowsky and
Hagen should be major factors, as these two were
the only sixth graders ever to start on the Varsity.

U NICORN stickmen enjoyed another out-
standing year as the ten-game lacrosse season
again saw the ASLC undefeated in schoolboy com-
petition. Rivals both new and traditional were gen-
erally trampled, and the only "blot" on an otherwise
sensational record was a tense 6-4 loss to a 10th
grade team from the Hill School in Pennsylvania.
Outscoring their ten opponents 98-24 l6O-9 in the
first halfll, the Blue 84 Gold were led in scoring by
"Menehune" Clifton York's 40 pts. 122 goals and 18
assistsj at attack, Glenn Robinson's 15 goals and 12
assists at midfield, along with stout defense and
goaltending fled by Captains Hilliard at defense and
Evans in the netsj. Whereas in the past the team
had largely relied on one outstanding man to carry
the bulk of the attack, this year produced a real
team effort Q61 of the 98 goals were assistedll.
The season opened on a warm April 19th against
arch-rival Buckley, on the Unicorns' home field at
Randall's Island. Quickly the Unicorn attack took
charge, pouring in a goal-a-minute performance that
threatened to make a "laugher" out of the game
unless the subs saw quick action. Midfielder Leon
Kinloch took opening scoring honors for the new
season, soloing past several bewildered Buckley foes
after only 1:50 had elapsed. After that the floodgates
were open, as all the attackmen lClinton "the Rab-
bit" johnson and Mark Tiedemann completed the
starting trio along with Yorkj dented the twines for
a 5-0 lead at the end of the quarter. The ASLC
scored virtually at will, as the subs poured in for a

The following day the Unicorns faced a weak St.
Bernard's team at home. York, johnson 81 Co. quick-
ly went to work, building a 7-1 halftime lead, aided
by outstanding play from Robinson, Kinlock and
midfielder Peter Livingston. 14-2 was the final in this
fiasco, which saw the Unicorns take 71 shots!
Things were tougher the following Friday against
Englewood, also at home on RandalI's. Suffering
from the first quarter jitters, the ASLC found them-
selves knotted at 1-apiece at the end of the first
period, thanks to a beautiful solo effort by Liv-
ingston. Things looked up quickly after the break,
however, as York and Tiedemann combined for
three tallies to put the Unicorns ahead to stay.
Tiedemann's goal was particularly pretty, as he dod-
ged two defenders to score from close-in. The sec-
ond half was dominated by Robinson's play ftwo
goals and an assistj as the ASLC went on to a hard-
fought 8-2 win against its first tough opponent of
Confident from previous years' successes, and
newly equipped with a potent Maryland 2-2-2 of-
fense, the squad took to the busses to visit Harvey
School in Katonah, longtime A-S rival in all sports.
Although the Unicorns scored quickly lRobinson
and Tiedemannl, the team was in for a bloodbath as
the totally incompetent referee allowed flagrant vio-
lations to go unnoticed. Harvey's play got increas-
ingly rougher, and only "enforcer" tactics by Hilliard
and defenseman jimmy "Croc" Krissel kept things in
order. Fortunately the novel "Boys' Latin ride" kept
the Katonah lads off balance enough to mess up
their clears and pave the way for a tough 6-1
triumph. Particularly satisfying was faceoff man Hill-
iard's tally against Harvey's obnoxious goalie. lt was
the first game so far in which all the subs had not
been in action, although several did, including
goalie Adam Lesberg fwho might be the best ASLC
goalie ever by ninth grade!! and defenseman Greg
Demirjian. Another act worthy of mention was de-
fenseman Bradley Kulman's beautiful assist to Hill-
iard - the only point scored by a defenseman all
After a ten-day lay-off, the ASLC faced four oppo-
nents in five days, two of them unknown prep
schools. To begin this tough week, the Unicorns
warmed up by toasting St. Bernard's 20-3 and Buck-
ley 10-2. Everybody played, and it seemed as though
almost everybody scored. Attackmen Willie Duryea
and Eric vanLeight broke scoring droughts, while
teeny 5th grader Brian johnson became the first of
his grade to ever score a varsity goal in any sport!
Even Evans fplaying at attack! netted one!
Then, on Friday afternoon, the team boarded its
first air-conditioned bus to journey to Lawrenceville,
New jersey, for its first prep school outing and
overnight trip. Nervous and ill at ease fielding
groundballs on the rock-hard Lawrenceville varsity
field, the Unicorns trailed only 2-'I at the half,
mainly on the incredible goaltending of Evans, who
turned away 13 difficult Larrie blasts. Baffled by a
tough .zone ride, the Unicorn clearers failed to get
the ball to their attack, and defeat seemed only a
matter of time away.
Although A-S hopes rose in the third period when
Livingston knotted the score at 2-all, Lawrenceville
pulled out in front early in the fourth as the Uni-
corns seemed to wilt under the heat and pressure of
keeping the first midfield in most of the time. But
then the break all had been hoping for occurred,
scooping the ball past two opponents, Robinson
dredged up all his strength to race upfield and pass
to the Rabbit for the tying goal with less than three
minutes left in the game. The Larries called a time-
out, followed by A-S so as to give the shock troops
more rest and then it happened. Taking the
ensuing faceoff, Hilliard raced down field, looking
for the open man on the break, finding nobody
open he shot to score the winning goal in what was
undoubtedly one of the greatest moments in A-S
sports history. The Unicorns had upset a potent
prep school ninth grade opponent, certainly one of
the ASLC's greatest coups. Coach Nichols received
well-deserved dousing with the remains of the ice
bucket, and a jubilant bunch of kids went off to
explore what was for most their first prep school.
The following morning the team hit the road
again, for the TW hour trip from Lawrenceville to the
Hill School in Pottstown, Pa. Arriving in insufferably
hot weather and having to endure Hill's food, the
boys learned for the first time that their opponents
would be chiefly tenth graders. lHill started 8 of
themlj Undismayed the squad rolled up a seemingly
comfortable 4-O lead by halftime, outshooting their
bigger opponents 20-7 and just narrowly missing
several other tallies. Robinson scored twice, fol-
lowed by Livingston and York.
But the second half was another story, as the Hill
gorillas came out for blood, to play football with
sticks in their hands. Quickly the smaller Unicorns
were beaten and pummeled, Kinloch was KO'd and
many other starters were walking wounded. Al-
though the Blue 84 Gold continued to get some
good shots off, they weren't going in, and by the
end of the third period the roof fell in. Hill went on
to score 6 unanswered goals to send A-S to its first
defeat ever, 6-4. Needless to say, it was a long bus
ride back, although the boys certainly had nothing
to be ashamed of lmaybe the Hill athletic depart-
The season ended anticlimatically, with easy wins,
9-0 and 11-2, over King and Greenvale. York contin-
ued his scoring blitz long enough to get himself
elected captain along with Robinson, and the
ASLC's third season was history. As 64 of this year's
98 goals were scored by returners next year, the 1978
squad should be dynamite for Mr. Nichols' farewell
L OWER SCHOOL FIELD DAY, in the eyes of all
the participants, was highly successful. As Mr.
Grassi commented, "lt was great fun - and not too
far from the Ravelled Sleeve!" In all grades com-
petition was at its height, as the Lower Schoolers
had a choice of six events of mixed type. Com-
petition was held in the following events: 50 meters,
100 meters, 440 meters lor thereaboutsj, three-leg-
ged race, wheelbarrow race and the half-mile run.
Unlike the conglomeration of the upper school
field day, this field day each grade organized its
own events with a teacher to give aid to all the
groups. Because of this the teachers thought it was
not right to single out any one participant. These
helpful organizers under the direction of Mr. Terrill
were Mr. Grassi, Mr. Daly, Mr. Kersey, and Miss
Round. This different sort of field day was what
really made it a hit and compliments should be
given to all those who helped to make it such a

U PPER SCHOOL FIELD DAY took place after
final exams on Wednesday, june 8 - the latest
date ever. And, for the first time since the landing of
Columbus, it came on a rain date, as the previous
day's festivities were cancelled by the monsoons. A
slight chilling wind was present and for the first
time the games were held after exams. Teachers as
well as boys thought of the day as a way to forget
those dreadful exams. The usual cheerfulness was
also in the air and the picnic following the events
hosted a large array of foods with no help from Tim
Nichols and his vichyssoise. Instead, he mooched
off of the Landis-Seplow-Jacobs and johnson fami-
Fifth through Ninth grades participated in six
events that Wednesday and some excellent com-
petition evolved. Each boy signed up for three
events according to grade. These activities included
the usuals such as the 50 meter dash, the 100 meter
dash, the softball throw, the shot putt, the broad
jump and the 400 meter run. A new event as of last
year was also included, the potato race. ln this
event the boys run the 400 meter track with an
Idaho on the end of a large spoon. However, this
frat' f' ' J. .k-A -. ,
- ' X ' - i - f I Q Q
still did not end the spills, but one man did emerge
ahead of the pack without dropping his potato
once. This was eighth grader Barrett Lester, who
easily overcame his opponents. There was a rumor
however, that Lester practiced at home, but when
confronted with the rumor Lester stated "I used a
larger potato". Some of the winners of this event
were Tony Green and Robert Margolis.
The softball throw hosted some new records.
Mish joukowsky hurled a beauty to overcome his
closest opponent, Colin Hagen. In the seventh grade
jeffrey lenoure almost threw one that left the sta-
dium. jimmy Krissel in the ninth grade, led his
group with a record of 64 meters or 213 feet.
The long jump was also an exciting feature. Here
ninth grade sky riders, Andrew Zaloom and Robert
Margolis flew for distances of nearly five meters.
Ralph Whitmore, an eighth grader had a tre-
mendous leap of 4.66 meters to win.
Of course the four hundred meter run has always
been a favorite of the crowd. In the ninth, one of
the most thrilling runs came from Dave Hilliard and
Andrew Zaloom. Dave stayed five yards behind
Andrew until the end, and then overcame him to
As has been in the past, this year's field day was
highly successful and exciting. After the track
events, a softball game proved equally as fun.
MAESTRO GAUGER'S famous combo of sixty
came into the year minus several backbones of
the Orchestra, lost to graduation. Nevertheless,
those who remained were anxious to do a good job
filling the shoes of their elders. After a rough begin-
ning, most things smoothed out and the Orch prog-
ressed as though such stalwarts as Landon Hilliard,
Conway Cliff, Robert Benjamin, and, of course, john
Carr, had never left. One of the nicest things about
this year's group was the fact that the people who
were there really wanted to be there - in the ideal
The first engagement was the Christmas concert,
played at St.Vjean Baptiste. Twelve alumni returned,
as is traditional for that festive season, and they
assisted on Bach's Fugue in B minor and Mus-
sorgsky's Hopak, along with a host of Christmas
carols. The regular members also performed Hand-
el's march from Scipio and Leroy Anderson's Sinco-
pated Clock ffresh from the Late Showi. A stunning
performance of the ever-present Stars 8: Stripes
topped off the evening - with no less than six
piccolos leading the way in solo.
Later, things began to roll in preparation for the
spring seson. The overture from Fiddler on the Roof
was added to the repertoire, along with the difficult
Marche Slave of Tchaikowsky. Here, for the trum-
pets, led by Frank Visconti, took a long time to
master their difficult passages. At last all was ready
for the Chapin Concert, a joint effort held in the
gym on April 27. Mr. Charles Walker fof Canterbury
Choral Society 84 Blue Hill Troupe famej brought
along fifty Chapin girls, who performed excerpts
from The Music Man in between Orch numbers.
For the final concert, at home on May 20, the
Orch added further numbers: Katchaturian's Gay-
enne Suite and "Dance of the Tumblers." Unfortu-
nately the concert had to be performed in the
school gym, a most unsatisfactory auditorium where
there is barely enough room for the Orchestra,
never mind the parents and other spectators. The
addition of a 5th 81 6th grade locker room has
further restricted space in the gym tand lowered Mr.
Gauger's boiling pointl, and further magnified the
school's crying need for more space. Of course the
house was packed, and the concert went well, with
the difficult pieces being performed to perfection.
Enthisiastic parents applauded wildly, and there
were a few moist eyes as people began to realize it
was the last time of their A-S Orch careers. The
highpoint of it all was a joint piccolo duet per-
formed by Messrs. Gauger 81 Emory in the Stars 84
Certainly there will be some difficult shoes to fill
for next year's Orch, as graduating this year are such
stalwarts as clarinetists Mark Tiedemann and Freddy
Vogelstein, tympanists Timi loukowsky and Danny
Szor, and flautists Peter Livingston and Robert Mar-
golis. Nevertheless, the Editors trust that Maestro
Gaugerino will once again weld together an all-star
outfit for his 1977-8 season, combining unique
blend of perseverence and tyranny. Thanks for
everything, Stanley, you've done it again!
TUDENT extra-curricular activities flourished
once again this year, despite a growing collec-
tion of individuals "skip-out-of-school club" early in
the year. These stalwarts shall remain nameless, as
the Editors wish to incriminate nobody. On the
whole, most clubs were successful in attracting
enthusiastic participants, and there were even some
new activities. Boys having special interests could
practice their specialties - whether in Cooking Club
or Shop Club. And then, if one's interests were in
the outdoors, then he could go canoeing, back-
packing, rock climbing, riding or sailing, he could
always accompany Mr. Cole on one of his Outing
Club trips. Too numerous to photograph, in a group
here, and never peopled with the same faces, from
trip to trip, the Outing Club gave many a boy
unusual opportunities to test his courage against
nature and the elements.
Ms. Kopple headed the Art Club program, first she
concentrated on basic techniques in her Friday af-
ternoons, but later she applied these methods to
such activities as book binding and tie-dying. She
used a great variety of materials. including acrylics,
leather and charcoal.

Shop Club was directed by Mr. Meyendorff, who
brought a great deal of innovative ideas to the boys.
Students were delighted in making lamps, person-
alized with their names, early in the year, He also
offered classics: bookends and bowls, besides let-
ting boys finish projects begun in regularly sched-
uled shop periods.
The addtion of Mr. English gave Drama Club a
shot in the arm, and his fresh approaches inspired
acting abilities, although Mr. Schroeter remained the
backbone of the club. The number of enthusiasts
nearly doubled this year, and so did the fun! The
. ,, .fag-
.. -. ...lr
Club's main projects were creating skits about vari-
ous subjects in everyday life, past and present. On
one occasion, for instance, the Club was split into
groups and told to come up with ideas about the
Bicentennial. Some examples were: an interview
with Washington crossing the Delaware and a col-
orblind Betsy Ross.
Merging with last year's Backgammon Club,
Games 84 Diplomacy also flourished, bringing its
total enrollment to 537 - or so it seemed. The Club
took up many rooms depending upon number of
"casinos" required. Among the favorite games were
backgammon, stratego, diplomacy and go fand
many a game of go lasted well into the afternoon.i
Cooking Club, started by newcomer Mr. julian,
was a new favorite this year, as he got official
approval from Mrs. Krasa to use the school kitchen.
Some of the culinary delights created by Mr. lulian
and his gang of amateur enthusiasts were: eggplant
parmigians, beef and broccoli, and fettucine Al-
fredo. Supposedly the eggplant was the best, and
those who tried it were not, repeat were not,
afflicted with serious gastric disturbances. Because
of the long preparation time fnot to mention the
clean-upsj, the Club usually broke up around five-
thirty leaving full bellies instead of empty ones
to feast on many a TV dinner at home. Three cheers
for Mr. julian, whose gastronomic enthusiasm in-
fected many a boy with appreciation for better food
instead of the usual "hamburger" mentality.
Newcomer Mr. Tobolsky instituted a strictly-for-
fifth-graders club to play fand learn without losing

With lacrosse enthusiasm reaching new heights,
the Roof Club became an-open-ended affair with
boys perfecting skills. Many a member from another
club came up to the sixth floor after his earlier club
had finished, so the roofers usually finished playing
only because of darkness. A new goalie was trained,
many fifth graders were introduced to the sport, and
Wee Willie Duryea at last achieved greatness tath-
letic Nirvanaj through the rigors of the roof pro-
Debating enthusiast Mr. Pariseau practiced his
ploemics with his Friday afternoon Debating Club,
especially reserved for 8th and 9th graders. This club
took advantage of the Presidential Election year, and
each Friday of the fall debated on which Presiden-
tial campaign was better. After the Elections, they
kicked around such interesting subjects as Commu-
nism in Western Europe and whether or not to
legalize marijuana. On this last matter the Editors
are following the advice of their attorney and refus-

Clearly the Friday clubs - and their after-hours
extensions, make Allen-Stevenson one of the most
diverse schools in New York. To be sure, some are
undemanding in their scope, others have definite
goals and deadlines, while some just open-end
themselves to cater to kids' likes. Here we should
mention one of Allen-Stevenson's oldest organiza-
tions: Kersey's Warriors. Doctor Dave has always
found a group of enthusiastic foursquare freaks,
basketball nuts, etc. to utilize the gym on Friday

'I' HE high point of this year's publications effort
was Bradley Kulman's well-run AlIen-Steven-
son News, not to take any credit away from the
Unicorn. Led by Kulman and his determined staff of
"Wee Willie" Duryea, Dean "Ween" Landis, jeremy
Ben-Ami and Timi loukowsky, the News produced
four fine issues without annoying anybody land
that's hard to doli. Clifton York, and his eager
darkroom people, Larry "Buballa" Siskind, kept the
News in pictures. Although there were a few rushed
deadlines, and the Cocce Press went out of business
midway through the year lgood-bye Emilll, Kulman
84 Co. functioned almost completely independently
of advisor Mr. Nichols iwho wasn't even here for
the first semesteri. One could always find them
sweating over some last minute headlines to fit in
around the printer's ridiculously early deadlines
followed by Kulman's roar of "Duryea and Landis,
down to the printers!" We shall not repeat what the
reply usually was. lf anything went wrong, it was
usually blamed on Robert Buehler, a comfortable
scape-goat since no one could remember exactly
what stories he'd been assigned. Perhaps the only
area where trouble was encountered was with the
various Opinion Forums, where students and faculty
were asked to give their views on sometimes con-
troversial items. Since Allen-Stevenson has always
been a hot-bed of outspoken dissent, it has been
logical to assume that most will freely spout their
opinions if given a platform. Not so, and the Editors
had to go far afield - to special writers such as
Plato, Socrates, and name withheld - for sources of
Perhaps the less said about the Unicorn the bet-
ter. Despite the presence of Clay "lgnatz" Hutchi-
son lformer Editor-in-Chiefl in the fall semester, the
yearbook suffered from a lack of overall leadership.
Editor-in-Chief Livingston took a back seat as York
took over, ably assisted by Landis, Siskind and lou-
kowsky land missing Greg Demirjianl. Long hours
were spent in the claustrophobic darkroom trying to
catch up, but only the second deadline was missed
by an appreciable amount of time. Minor crises
occurred over the misuse of water and the avoi-
dance of permawash, the lack of copy paper, the
theft of a camera, the lack of contrast on the varsity
soccer picture, etc. The Editors for 1978 have already
planned their book, so Mr. Nichols' last Unicorn
should be much less of a headache. Please bear
with us, dear readers! and contribute more than you
did this year. Even the likes of Glickman 84 Ruenitz
lour esteemed Business Managersl don't like to
apply strong-arm methods to raise funds!

CARNIVAL 84 BOOK FAIR
C ARNIVAL was once again a success in 1977,
raising nearly S1300 to be entrusted to the
Student Council for appropriation. February 11th
was the fateful date, as eager hordes of parents,
relatives, reluctant grandparents, etc., trouped into
the confines of the gym UQ, accompanying their
One of the most unusual - and voted most
original by the judges - was 7th grader Whitney
Ransick's argument booth, where one could have a
temper-venting 60-seconds of blabbering and com-
plaining. All the while patrons of this booth were
subjected to a steady stream of Ransick invective,
including insults and moderate profanity. All in all,
it was a popular venture, and most students want it
back next year. "
The ludson family and 801 founded and funded a
Wheel of Fortune, where legitimate prizes land sim-
ply rubber lizards, spiders, etc.i could be won by
lucky contestants. Then there was Locomotion, run
by Nick Armington and Lars Lofas. This tested one's
training driving skills - without forcing patrons to
join a union!
These booths - and many others, of course -
made a gross of over 51500, aided by Mr. Gauger's
ever-present hot dog and warm soda stand. Mr.
Suter once again took up his spot selling tickets at
the front door, and Mr. Harlan's overall leadership
once again coordinated things - despite a sore lack
of good door prizes contributed by patrons other
than ludson. Frankly, Mr. ludson and family deserve
much more praise than they got, as they donated
the bulk of the quality door prizes.

The annual Book Fair, sponsored by the A-S Par-
ents' Association, had another excellent turn-out, on
November 16. New science equipment for the lower
school and more books for the main library were
the primary goals of the exercise. With Messrs.
Webb.and hot julian as salesmen, the science target
was easily achieved fas was Mrs. Rittenberg'si.
The selection of books was opened to lower
schoolers at 1 pm, and youngsters browsing found a
new edition of the A-S cookbook, containing many
recipes contributed by parents fit sold for the bar-
gain price of 55.1. This handsome yellow loose-leaf
volume is a must for every family, it contains prov-
en dishes which kids acutally eat.
Lower school boys, mostly fourth graders, scurried
about selling raffle tickets to visitors. This year the
prizes were exceptional, lzod shirts to Ranger -
autographed hockey sticks. In front of the stage
were the usual collection of posters featuring athlet-
ic superstars of all sports. As usual, upper schoolers
were the biggest buyers of these. Next to the posters
was a new display: monogramed hats and scarves
took the place of last year's T-shirts. In the center of
the gym were the popular chance games. In the M
81 M game, the numbers 1776 and 1976 were
guessed several times, as many thought they "Had
the system." But the eighth graders were over-
powering, as Roberto DeVido took home a pair of
Ranger tickets with the exact number. Runner-up
jimmy Jacobs found many friends eager to share his
second prize: the M 81 Ms - all of 'eml
D RAMATICS had another banner year at Allen-
Stevenson, growing popular with an increasing
number of boys. The year was highlighted by three
excellent productions, the extension of the Back-
stage Club, and, of course, the individual class plays.
Mr. Gauger's annual Gilbert 84 Sullivan lMikado this
yearl, Mr. Landis' ninth grade plays, and a fall play
from Mr. Schroeter were the major productions.
Although many boys were in all three plays, the
productions appeared relatively close in time, Mr.
Schroeter's Life 84 Times of Sneaky Fitch premiered
in December, Mr. Landis' four one-acters in Febru-
ary, and the Mikado in March.
ln 1976 the first ninth grade feature was frought
with many production problems, as the actors were
overloaded with work and had too little time to
rehearse. This year Mr. Landis' boys were completely
excused from mandatory field, and thus had more
time to work on their acting. As it turned out, the
production was most successful, both performances
played to half-full houses as parents and friends
were in short supply ltypical Allen-Stevenson sup-
portl. Fortunately Sneaky Fitch and the Mikado en-
joyed much better turn-outs.
First on the list came a new dimension in dramat-
ics: a Middle School production of 5th 84 6th gra-
ders, led by Mr. Schroeter. His band of determined
actors stunned the audience with a magnificent
performance as Peter Judson starred in the role of
drunkard Sneaky Fitch. Whenever challenged to a
fight he would back out - but only at the last
possible moment. Through some mysterious way,
Sneaky became the town sheriff, only soon to be
killed by his arch-rival tChris Russelll. A sad end to
a promising law enforcement career!
On February 16th came Mr. Landis' four one-
acters, featuring members of the ninth grade ex-
clusively. The first play, The Whirligig of Life, by
.1 .Q' " A
5 .. ,
O'Henry, was a mirthful story set in Tennessee of
the 188O's. A couple wishes a divorce, but finds life
is even worse when separated. After numerous ex-
changes of a S5 bill fthe divorce and marriage feej,
the couple remarry and live happily ever after fdon't
they alllj. Timi loukowsky portrayed the tobacco
chewing hillbilly who wants to dump his dumpy
wife QDanny Szorj. john Schubert played the justice
of the peace, a hard-of-hearing rustic. One of the
best jokes centered around confusion over the word
"plaintiff" rnis-read by the myopic justice as
The second play, The Reigate Squires, was a typi-
cal Sherlock Holmes mystery which isn't really a
mystery. Naturally Holmes is the only one who can
figure out the murder, as the rest of the cast hadn't
a clue. Peter Livingston tripped over his English
accent, supported by Freddy Vogelstein, Robert
Margolis, Mark Tiedemann, Bodey Brookins, jimmy
Krissel fthe inspector - hahlj, and Mario Muller.
The third was entitled A Madison Square Arabian
Night, also by O'Henry. This was about a famous
painter who, when he painted, would by' strange
reasons, capture a person's true character and iden-
tity. This power eventually led to fortune as Bodey
Brookins starred in the role of a millionaire seeking
advice from painter jeremy Ben-Ami.
The last play was the hit of the evening: Chekov's
The Shoemaker and the Devil, a Faustian story set in
Russia of the 19th Century with a twist of Sholem
Alechim. Danny Szor was magnificent in the role of
the shoemaker, who trades his soul to the Devil
lBen-Amij in order to become instantly wealthy. As
things evolve, the shoemaker prefers his poorer life
because his low-level manners and habits do not fit
in expensive neighborhoods. He decides to be hap-
py and poor rather than unhappy and rich, thus he
returns to his nagging wife lMuIlerl and returns to
drinking copious quantities of vodka. Szor's Russian
accent ftainted with Yiddishj, was marvelous, cap-
turing the audience. He was supported by jimmy
Krissel fhis rival shoemakerj, Mark Tiedemann and
Freddy Vogelstein fbutler 84 maidl, Timi laukowsky
la Cossackj and Mario Muller this wifej.
On March 15th came the long-awaited Mikado,
presented by Maestro C-auger, hordes of upper
schoolers, along with well-wishing mothers who
fondly sewed costumes and made up boys to look
like various stages of japanese sterotypes. Instead of
the usual 50-person chorus, only true enthusiasts
turned out, and the result was perhaps the best
chorus G 84 S has seen here in a long time. For the
occasion, a professional lighting crew headed by A-
S alumnus Charley Bullock Q'72l, with help from
Ralph Whitmore and Craig Boyce, arranged a myriad
of floods, spots, gels, blinky-winkies, etc. to make
outstanding stage effects. Also featured was a
stunning backdrop painted by art teacher Ms.
Kopple fwith help from Mr. Kerseyl. lt was a bright-
ly-colored japanese scene with the ever-present Mt.
Fuji in the background.

Mark Tiedemann stole the show as the corpulent
Poo-Bah, Lord High Everything Else. His imperious
manner and over-size belly grabbed everyone's at-
tention. Yum-Yum fthe soprano heroinej was well-
done by Tony Green, while Pitti-Sing fher friendj
was very well done by jonny Potter. Katisha fthe
mezzo villaini was white-faced Sandy Trippe, who
couldn't sing in anything other than a gravely croak
but sure could act! Besides singing isn't important
for this role. The Mikado fhimselfj was done in low-
key fashion by Mr. English, while Ko-Ko, Lord High
Executioner, was interpreted by Roger Summers
fwho finished memorizing his part shortly before
the curtainj. Brad Kulman did a surprisingly good
job with Pish-Tush to round out the high-level
As in A-S tradition, the afternoon production
brought shivers to the actors, as they waited pa-
tiently for their parents to come to the evening
performance. Some never even got out of their
make-up, and thus terrorized Kay's and the Pavillion
Pizzeria! The evening performance, of course, went
far smoother fthe audience laughed at the proper
times and squirmed less in the front rows.J.
Despite near heart-failure, Mr. Gauger again pro-
duced another fine G 84 S, and prediction of G 84 S
extinction due to lack of popularity once again
proved unfounded. Clearly Allen-Stevenson dramat-
ics have come a long way this year, and perhaps
even Mr. Cole will return to the stage after a year's

R. PARlSEAU'S pride and joy, the Student
Council, was ably headed by leremy Ben-Ami
for both semesters, and became ever more involved
in school affairs than before. Of course the Council
helped run the annual Carnival, the Opera Lottery,
the 8th 81 9th Grade dance, the UNICEFF collec-
tions, and the continuing purchase of kitchen
This year the dance was the main attraction, as
such an event had theretofore been prohibited by
the school administration. Friday, May 13th, was the
date of this extravaganza, featuring Roger Sommers'
"Mace" band. The affair netted about S250 and
reportedly nobody was caught trying to sneak off
upstairs for nefarious activity.

From this's year's Carnival the Council netted
51300, and as we go to press it is yet undecided
how to allocate these funds. Some of the ideas so
far have been to buy a new curtain for the stage,
individual movie screens for each classroom, new
accordion partitions for the Sth, 7th and 8th grade
classrooms, or buying a new card catalogue for Mrs.
Rittenberg in the library.
Four A-S Carnival booths participated in the May
24th block party, and good cheer was spread over
78th St. as Matthew Peyton skateboarded by. Over
fifty boys went to the Metropolitan Opera lagain
courtesy of Mrs. leanconl, while the UNICEFF drive
raised 5380. Great credit to Messrs. Pariseau 84 Ben-
Ami ... now, shall we have a debate, anybody?
'I' HE last four Friday morning assemblies in the
spring featured the finalists in the annual pub-
lic speaking contest. In the semi-final rounds, facul-
ty judges graded the speakers in six categories,
ranging from content to delivery, on a scale of one
to ten. The two winners in each of the top three
grades went on to compete against each other in
the final round, judged by Mr. White iPresident of
the Boardj, Mr. Boocock fHeadmaster of Buckley
Schooll, Mrs. Roffman fformer parent, Trusteej and
Mrs. Leighton iHead of Lower Schoolj.
The seventh grade finalists began the season, with
Frank Visconti relating how Saudi Arabia was not a
million-dollar paradise but a dirt-poor land where
only a very few enjoyed the benefits of oil revenues.
He was followed by Clinton johnson, who spoke on
the evils of alcohol abuse. Warren Etheredge gave
an amusing talk on pickles iwhich won him first
place in the gradej, followed by second place win-
ner Alex Gellert, who spoke on the benefits of New
York City living.
The eighth grade speakers followed on the next
Friday, and here Barrett Lester emerged the winner
with a skillfully worded and presented talk of sleep.
Second place winner lan Fischer talked about how
computers will soon replace man, while close third
place man Tim Reunitz discussed abandoning the
Electoral College, The rest of the eighth graders all
placed within a 20-point span, and some of these
were jimmy lacobs l"what the world is turning
into"j, Dean Landis iagainst corporal punishment in
schoolsj, Clifton York fdisastersj, and Eric vanLeight
this experiences in a French schoolj.
The following week the ninth graders spoke. Bod-
ey Brookins predicted his vision of A-S in 1990, and
iv 1' t-
in a closely-related speech, Lars Lofas "Star Trekked"
his way into the future. Danny Szor, first place
winner, urged people to speak out, even if it meant
going against popular opinions. Second place win-
ner Michael Hedges, who told the audience to
please stop teasing the unfortunates. jeremy Ben-
Ami placed third with a talk about an imaginary
election day which found America in chaos.
The following Friday all the finalists competed,
and Szor won, with Gellert runner-up.
F OR eight eighth graders and eighteen ninth
graders june 9th Prize Day signified the end of
the line at Allen-Stevenson. The previous day, while
Upper Schoolers frolicked at RandalI's lsland Field
Day, Lower School lgrades 1-4j had their com-
mencement, accompanied by two plays, many
songs, and prizes, ribbons, etc., for many recipients.
Upper School Prize Day ceremonies began with
Dr. Kring tAll Souls' Unitarian Churchj invocation.
He was followed by jeremy Ben-Ami's valedictory.
For the first time, the valedictorian was not the
speech contest winner, but one chosen by the fac-
ulty from a list of student-nominated candidates. ln
a well-prepared talk which skillfully avoided men-
lioning a single name, Ben-Ami dealt with the usual
Then Mr. Suter, really the master of ceremonies
for Prize Day, began the long list of awards, some-
what shortened this year due to an earlier ceremony
at an assembly which dispensed many lesser
awards. Mr. Suter began with the Shop Award,
presented to 6th grader josh Holland this year, while
the Art Award went to Mark Browning.
Next, the Drama Club award went to Barrett
Lester, the Francis Keally Drama Award, one of the
school's most venerable, was omitted in error from
the program. Ut went to Danny Szorj
Editor of the A-S News Bradley Kulman, along
with Clifton York, copped the publications awards,
small recompense for thousands of hours of slaving
over the News and Unicorn.
Outstanding citizens in 5th and 6th grades are
presented with medals from the Sons of the Revolu-
tion, this year these pins went to Hans Wydler and
jeffrey Oesterricher. The Daughters of the Revolu-
tion medal fsame thing, but for 7th gradersj, went
to Alex Gellert.
Then came the richest award, the Mayflower
Compact, given to the best 7th grade history student
- along with a S100 savings bond! jesse Cohen was
the worthy recipient. the ran an A-plus average all
In gratitude for eons of time in the lab, the
Science Award went to Nick Armington, while Ben-
Ami copped the Glenn Gamble Memorial Latin
Award. For "independence of spirit" the Charles
Horman Memorial Award was presented to Michael
Next followed the coveted Athletic Cup, given to
the best all-round athlete. This was awarded to
David Hilliard, who amassed no less than thirteen
varsity letters and three captaincies in following his
distinguished older brother Landon.
Then followed the presentation of the Alumni
Medal, perhaps the most prized of all the awards.
Ben-Ami won this one, too, for outstanding service
to the school.
Next came the award of honor rolls, with nearly
half the fifth graders being so rewarded, while the
list dwindled considerably as one went higher in the
grades. Mr. Cole took the opportunity of speaking at
length before handing out the diplomas to the
graduates, reminding the ninth graders how awful
they had been as seventh graders and how they had
supposedly progressed in the last three years. He
was followed by President of the Board Mr. White,
who cracked a joke at Mr. Cole's expense, sat down,
and called for the singing of "America" With that,
Prize Day expired for 1977.

About the New York Lyric Opero
The New York Lyric Opera Company was founded in 1972 by Donald W.
Johnston, who serves as its General Director. NYLOC provides high-level,
professional experience for the best of the hundreds of aspiring young
American Opera singers, by producing at least five operas Q20 perfor-
mances totali annually. Many of these young artists have gone on to sing
with major operahouses in the U.S. and Europe as a result of their appear-
ances with the company.
Since NYLOC's inception, more than 1,000 singers, musicians, directors
and technical personnel have performed with the company. Fully-staged
productions of the New York Lyric have attracted a wide audience, includ-
ing students and others who have rarely, if ever, seen an opera.

A letter from the PUBLISHER
UNICORN LEADERS - Peter Livingston iabovel and Clifton
York fbelowl Unicorn 1977 Editors-in-Chief. As different as
any two could possibly be, Clifton ran the picture end and
T OUGH times were in store for the finances of
both publications this year, made especially
tough by lack of parent and student support. The A-
S News staff was deeply disappointed at lack of
enthusiasm for its Opinion Forums, especially from
those who complain so much ibut contribute so
littlel. Considering the school has had truly out-
standing publications - not to speak of other quali-
ty extra-curriculars - surprisingly little enthusiasm
has been generated. Similar circumstances prevailed
at Benefit time, where the ninth graders sold only
one raffle ticket! ln years to come the Editors hope
to see enthusiasm rekindled - rather than the ex-
tinction of student publications.
