Mr. Hiram Tindoll

come to know him as a teacher, an adviser, and a friend. He has ac-
complished more than his position calls for in aiding the members and

look upon him as a person who will always occupy a special place in
our hearts and memories.

We wish to thank the many members of the Class of 1957 who have made
possible this second edition of Embers.
We are proud of our Seniors and grateful for your loyalty and many con-
tributions during the past two years. We wish you future success and hope that
graduation will not weaken the ties you have formed but as Alumni will still feel
that Amity is your school.
HOWARD D. BROOKS
CARLTON B. SEYBOLT
We are so pleased that you were with us. You have written the second
chapter of the book ot Amity. The class of 1957 have contributed much to enrich
the tradition of our school. As time passes you will all have a feeling of warmth
and pride in knowing that your contributions have meant so much to the real
meaning of Amity. We are very proud of you.

Under the supervision of Mr. Robert Holmberg, Mr. Frederick Fay,
and Mrs. Frederick Zilli, the three boards have worked together to comprise
this-the second edition of Amity Embers. In spite of numerous difficulties,
we feel that we have successfully recorded our class and school activities and
yet portrayed each senior as an individual.
We extend our appreciation to all those who aided us by contribut-
ing their time and effort. Each of us hopes that this classbook, the product of
our combined endeavors, will set a precedent for all those which follow.

In this, our last year at Amity, we have had many tasks beset us, the
preponderance of which have been carried out faithfully and with a mini-
mum of failure.
Not the least of these has been the iob of strengthening traditions and
creating new ones which we feel would be desirable and beneficial in the
Among the traditions which we feel we have in some measure
strengthened, is that of the "school tie," composed in part of cooperation and
amity between faculty and student body, and pride in scholastic and extra-
We would be the first to admit that it was not all sweetness and
light, however, nothing would be good if it were not for contrasting bad,
and by the same token, nothing would succeed if there were no failures by
which to measure success.

very few wholehearted but unsuccessful attempts.

Student Council President, Ken Kehrer
Our Student Council is regarded as the highest
student organization in the school. Its obiectives
are to assist in providing co-operation and unity
among the students and faculty in all extra-curricu-
lar activities and to give everyone an opportunity
to share in school responsibility.
This year, the council has done a tremendous
job. It has carried out many proiects in order to meet
the needs of the school. Amity should be proud of
its Student Council.
However, this year could not have been suc-
cessful if it had not been for the exhaustive work of
the executive board, the initiative of the represent-
atives and alternates, the excellent guidance of the
faculty advisers, and the enthusiastic support of the
whole student body. I wish to take this opportunity
to thank every single person who has helped us
during the year.
SENIOR COUNCIL OFFICERS

Treasurer, KennethLKehrer, President, Andy Bishop, Vice-President: JUNIOR COUNCIL OFFICERS
and Marion Hill, Corresponding Secretary.
Lucy Langeler, President, and Judy Richter, Recording
This year the Student Council has been divided
into two councils: that of the Junior High and that
of the Senior High, which meet together once a
month on Tuesday. Mr. James Dunleavy and Mr.
Richard Johnson are in charge of the Senior Council,
while Mr. John Jennings has organized the Junior
Council, composed only of the Junior High Mem-
This year the Council has been very busy in
sponsoring the Curtis Magazine Drive, the Awards
Assembly, the E. I. B. guides, providing ushers and
refreshment workers at the Variety Show, and giv-
ing daily announcements over the public address
system. The Council also sponsored a Welcome
Dance, took charge of the election of officers in
the iunior wing, collected toys at Christmas for or-
phanages, established the student store, and took
charge of the Rasbach Photos. This year they sent
representatives to regional and state conferences,
wrote up their own constitution, and joined the
National Association of Student Councils. "Hats off"
to a fine organization which has continually worked
for the students of Amity.

SENIOR CLASS PLAY
Another first for the Senior Class was the class play
which was held March 29th and 30th. The play "Turn
Back The Clock" is a hilarious story which proves that
the teenagers of the 1920's were no different from the
teens of today. Judy Wolfe aptly played Evie, the rad-
ical daughter of Mr. Uoe Glorialand Mrs. Uudy Wain-
manl Palmer, who drives her parents, especially her
father, to distraction. Evie's two boy friends, Charlie
Hill fDick Clareyl and Johnnie Stone CReid Kaplanl, prove
to be a source of hilarity throughout the play. Larry
Palmer CNed Buntonl and his sister Sally fMarion Hilll,
under a comic cover, tie this typical family of the era
together. Such characters as Maybelle Harrison CMary
Ellen Harrisonl, Irene lsherwood CBarbara Wiesl, Phyllis
McSorley QMary D'Aurial, Hilda the maid CDonna De-
Veglial, Barbara Bannister lPat Maxwelll, her brother,
Ollie fPat Siskl, and Slim Bascombe KDavid Dedrnanl add
to the comic scurry which was so vividly portrayed on
the Amity High School Stage.

"Rudolph's Romp" the winter dance
annually sponsored by the Senior
Class. The beat and bounce of Eddie
Wittstein and his orchestra and the
careful planning of Mitzi Wilcox
and her committee made it an en-
ioyable evening for all.
SENIOR CLASS NIGHT
One of the highlights of the Senior
year, Class Night, held on June 6,
proved to be a most enjoyable and hil-
arious evening for all.
This year the Athletic Association has
been busy establishing its constitution and
electing officers and new members. The
club has been in charge of hockey, football,
and basketball ticket sales, and has sold
iackets and gym bags in the association
store. Other duties have been to plan pep
rallies and award assemblies. Mr. James Ken-
nedy and Mr. John Podorski are the faculty

CLASS GIFT COMMITTEE
At a special meeting, the Senior class voted
unanimously that a trophy case would be their gift
to the school. Already there are trophies to be
placed in it-the football that was carried across
the goal by Bob Beardmore in Amity's first touch-
down during the I955 football season and the
hockey stick, signed by all the members of the
team, that was used by Russ Williams in Amity's
"first" at Providence. This case we hope will serve
its purpose in preserving all those treasures that
bring to mind the memorable events here at

photographers and to introduce interested but inexperienced pupils to the begin-
nings of printing, developing. and enlargements of photographs.

THE HOMEMAKING CLUB
The Homemaking Club provides
girls in tenth, eleventh, and twelfth
grades with an enioyable yet in-
formative view ofthe art of modern
homemaking. Mrs. Sterling Cobb in-
structs these "future housewives" in
the necessary skills of sewing, cook-
ing, and even entertaining. Ana-
may Clark presides as President and
is assisted bythe Vice-President, Hel-
ene Redenbach. Betty Pater, as Sec-
retary, records the club's events
Those in the Chef's Club have ioined because they like to
cook, and because, of course, they like to eat. The officers are:
President, Bob Esposito, Vice-President, Charlie Graves, Secretary,
Herb Mudie, and Treasurer, Tom Michell. At the beginning of
the year, the group pondered over what would be the best eat-
ing. Taking top honors were desserts, such as pies, cakes, and
e'clairs. Also rating high were the Italian dishes, as rich apizza.
But the boys are not selfish in their proiects. They often served
coffee and snacks to the teachers on Thursday. The climax of
the club's year came in the late spring, when they cooked a
turkey dinner "with all the trimmings". The boys are first given
a demonstration by Mrs. William Baskin, who has made most of
their experience possible. She then steps aside and lets the chefs
go to work!
"Cut!" Every week on Thursday and Fri-
day, the Junior and Senior Drama Clubs
meet with Mr. Sheldon Rose, supervisor. The
purpose ot the club is to enlighten young
people of the procedures and aspects in the

Separation into band and orchestra came during the next fall. A concert of
great success was held at Christmas and this led to attendance at the Band Fes-
tival held at the University of Connecticut.
Last year Mr. Sherman Krane took over instruction. With money made by
the Lion's Club Variety Show, uniforms were bought.
Soon a tour will be made of the B. O. W. grammar schools to promote inter-
est among the future students at Amity.
GIRLS' LEADERS CLUB
One of the newer and more popular of the
clubs is the Girls' Leaders Club which was organ-
ized this fall by Mrs. Lawson and Miss Mercer.
The club functions primarily as a workshop. Its
purposes are to develop athletic skills, teaching
to officiate various sports, to help provide indi-
vidual instruction in the large gym classes,
develop leadership characteristics, increase the
safety element in classes, and most important of
all, to promote the organization and officiations
of intra-mural activities.
A-M-l-T-Y is the cry usually heard when the
Pep Club, under the supervision of Mr. Eloi
Daigle, meets and practices for the coming ath-
letic events. lt is composed of girls from grades
seven, eight, and nine who want to learn the
fundamentals of cheerleading. The main function
of the club is to develop school spirit and to lend
support to the cheerleaders at the various sports

This year, the first full season of football at Amity,
saw many hard-fought battles on the gridiron.
Although the record was only 2 wins against 5 losses
the team was as impressive in defeat as they were in
victory. ln several of the games they far surpassed their
victorious opponents in yards gained, first downs and in
most of the categories in which the winning team usu-
Vito Luciani, the Captain, let the team in scoring with
5 touchdowns, scoring the first touchdown of the cam-
paign and the second in the history of the school. This
occurred on a pass from senior fullback Mike Sirowich in
the first game against North Haven, a play which covered
77 yards in all.
The next week, Amity played host to Griswold, a
game which resulted in a loss for the determined but
out-gunned Golden Bear.
Amity and St. Mary's met at East Rock Park, where
the Golden Bear bowed again O-6. The play of the defen-
sive team was outstanding however.
The team and the cheerleaders took a fairly long trip
to Central Falls where they met Plainfield High. Both the
cheerleaders and the few spectators witnessed Amity's
4th loss of the season. However, Amity's total yardage
was twice that of the opponent. Again Captain Luciani
scored the touchdown, with the final score 12-13. Out-
standing defensemen of the game were Ken Cunningham
and Ken Luciani.
The first win of the season, long overdue, was the
first in the short history of the school. This game was
played against Cheshire High at Cheshire. The entire team
played precision ball, both offensively and defensely.

Hold that line!!
Right from the opening face-off, this year's
hockey team proved to be a contender in the Dis-
trict Hockey League. After only a few short prac-
tices they plunged into the Jamboree and came ont
in second place with three wins and one loss, that
to mighty Hamden.
Coach Dunleavy says, "The way to win is to
skate and play your hearts out all the time, and
especially to stay out of the penalty box."
With Rusty Williams in the nets, two strong
and able defensemen, Co-captain Mac Chatfield
and Paul Lazay, and back-checking lines, goals
scored against Amity have been kept at a very
low minimum. On the other hand, the scoring
potential of the lines and the defense was excep-
tionally high. Co-captain Jerry Couden was the
leading play maker while Charles Harger had led
the scoring department, including two "hat tricks".
Both defensemen have good hard shots and inev-
itably their long blue line ones were the best.
Playing good hard hockey seems to be the
key to success for Amity's hockey team as they
fully realized their greatest desire . . . to go to
Providence for the New England High School
Hockey Tournament. In District League play they
ended up in second place with a 5-2-l record,
good enough to fulfill their desire. In total play
they had a creditable 7-3-l record.

won-lost record, a decided im rovem t

results to show for sincere efforts of all concerned. Mr. Halpin
put every talent at his disposal into the building of his team
wlt out whose guidance it is certain that things would have been
much worse in the scoring columns.
Although many of the squad will be graduating with the

Off to a flying start
Under the coaching of John Podorski, a former Olympic swimmer, the Amity
swimming team has made the transition from underdogs to champions in one short
year. All opposition in class B was decisively broken by the Amity Mermen.
As there is no official class B swimming championship Amity has won this
honor by virtue of having beaten every class B school in the State.
In overall competition Amity has the distinction of finishing 3rd in total
scoring for all classes.
Ten records in all have fallen before the powerful Amity swimmers. These
record-breaking events were led by Captain Jim Giebler's time of 20.7 in the 40
yard freetyle in the first meet. After the ice was broken, record times were es-
tablished again and again, there were four new record times.
Although swimming is not a spectator sport and is very little publicized,
our team has drawn and interested an large number of enthusiastic and proud

Hampered by inexperience, the Amity bowling team never-
theless showed fine form throughout the season. Special mention
goes to Capt. Ken Kehrer, one of the highest scorers in the league
and also to John Bell, Ernie Grabber, and Dick Kehrer, who, al-
though novices to organized bowling competition, have been re-
sponsible to a large extent for the success of the team so far.
High scoring honors go to Ken Kehrer with the high game
Amity's golf team, finishing a creditable 1956 season, re
turns shortly to the rolling lawns of local clubs. As the golf season
give any results. However, on the basis of last year's record and
the fact that all the lettermen are returning this year with a-season
of experience under their belts, we feel that the oncoming round
of matches promise to be highly successful.
One of the highlights of the 1956 matches was the excep-
tionly fine score of 79 made by Captain Art Decko, who comes
of 154 and the high 3 games with 345.

TRANSLATICJNS FROM THE SENICJRS
by Barbara Wies
ln recent months, some popular women's magazine has had a series of short
articles called "Translations from the Husband, Wife, etc. This is, therefore, dedi-
cated to Mr. Tindall, who knows, and all uninitiated faculty who may follow him
or have the rare privilege of associating with the god-like creatures fondly know
What they say . . .
1. Visual aids
2. Gyp sheets

4. "Mr. T, l have to work on the yearbook!"
5. "We had a late rehearsal."
