The Class of 1959
AMITY REGIGNAL HIGH SCHOOL
Table of Contents
Friends, faculty, and noble stu-
dentsp lend me your time. I have
come not to bury the past, but to
praise it. The evil that students do
lives in their memoriesp the good is
interred in my pages.
Robert P. Holmbcrg
It is with sincere appreciation that we dedicate the 1959 Embers
to Mr. Robert Holmberg. We have come to know him, as a teacher,
advisor, pass-collector, retaliations expert, and irreplaceable part of
our years at Amity. His constant and unselfish assistance has been
invaluable in producing this book of memories. Though he often pre-
tends to wish that we weren't around, we somehow don't accept this
and prefer to believe that he will miss and never forget us, as we will him.
FROM THE PRESIDENTS PEN
Our predecessors have mentioned their part in Amity firsts.
Now I feel it is time to mention the firsts our class has made.
We were the first class to enter Amity without eighth grade
graduation. We are the largest graduating class Amity has
had to date. As a result, we will be the first to have gradua-
This year has indeed been an eventful one. We have rein-
stituted the Senior Play, we have seen bleachers go up on the
football field, and despite the crowded conditions we have
made this a memorable senior year.
Members of our class have had vital roles in all phases of
school life. Our sports program, cheerleading, dramatic
productions, and school government have relied on members
of the Class of 1959 for leadership.
ln closing, thank you for the confidence you have shown in
me throughout the year. This year could not have been a suc-
cessful one if you had not been so willing to work, to offer
suggestions, and to cooperate. Enthusiasm is the key to our
Once more my thanks to you.
Amity was a new and exciting experience for the
members of our eighth grade class. Since the school
was not completed, we had to put up with gym
classes in the muddy parking lot, lunch in the home-
room, no shades in the classrooms, and noisy con-
struction outside. The office consisted of a very few
desks crowded into a corner of the iunior wing
The dedication of Amity took place in our fresh-
man year. We found ourselves busy organizing clubs
and establishing varsity sports. With the completion
of the school, a Junior and Senior Class moved in
from Hillhouse. Several members of our class made
their debut in the Drama Club's presentation, "Let-
ters to Lucerne."
The big event of our sophomore year was the suc-
cess of the hockey team which earned us the coveted
trip to Providence. The defeat of our team did not
affect our morale, what a train ride home!
ln our iunior year the class became organized and
unified. We elected officers who were: Liz Eaton,
President, Ken Luciani, Vice President, Betty Cristiano,
Secretary, and Carmela Criscuolo, Treasurer. Our
class rings arrived around Christmas. Some of the
class talent was featured in the Variety Show, "Man-
hattan Serenade." Then came our class dance,
"Shower of Music," which was quite a success.
Our senior year was packed with homework,
sports, and activities, with everything taking preced-
ence over everything else. Officers were elected to
head the Senior Class. Several memorable CD class
parties were held. In the late fall we launched into
a bigger and better Variety Show and after ex-
tensive rehearsing presented "The Shuffler" to a sell-
out audience. The Embers staff was appointed and
work began. The annual Sno-Ball, "Winter Wonder-
land," drew a large crowd. We made frantic prep-
arations for the Scholastic Aptitude Tests, only to
start reviews for the Achievement Tests when we
finished the SAT's. College applications, interviews,
and waiting for word, became 'a big part of our
already busy days. ln football we had the distinc-
tion of having two of our members, Ken Luciani and
Jim Clabby, chosen for the All-State Class B Team.
Many of our classmates contributed toward produc-
ing "My Sister Eileen," our Senior Play which turned
out to be a riotous success.
The climax of our Senior year came in the spring
with a wonderful Senior Prom. Then there was class
Finally our graduation finished our unforgettable
years in Amity, and we parted with many, many

HOWARD D. BROOKS
lt seems hardly possible that tive years have passed since the Class of 1959
came to Amity as the first eighth grade. However, by noting the many achieve-
ments of this Class, as recorded in this issue of Embers, these years were tull and
eventful. We remember the handicaps of the first year, with a minimum of facili-
ties, and the difticulties caused by overcrowding during this last year. We recog-
nize that the Class of 1959 has taken all this in stride with no lessening ot en-
thusiasm, morale, or attainment - for this we offer you our deep appreciation and
HOWARD D. BROOKS
We are proud ot the many contributions you
have made to the history and traditions of
Amity during the years you have been here.
The tine eftort you have made to make Amity
a better place to learn is appreciated by the
faculty and the students you leave behind. The
qualities you have displayed here will help you
to lead happy and productive lives in a society
which is most anxious to receive you.
We extend our best wishes tor your con-
tinued success in your post-Amity years.
Even a limited acquaintance with you, the
members of the Class of 1959, impresses me
with the contributions you have made to Amity
as individuals and as a class, and - more im-
portant - with the potential you hold for the
future. I believe that you will add materially to
the human resources we so badly need to meet
the challenges of tomorrow, and I am confident
that you will, individually and collectively,
reach heights of accomplishment that will make
all of us at Amity proud to have known you
and to have had the privilege of contributing
to your education.

The re-establishment of the Senior Class Play was awarded appreciation by a full
auditorium on both nights. An unforgettable performance was given of "My Sister Eileen,"
and the play was acknowledged as a smashing success. A net profit of five hundred and
fifty dollars was received. The first "Willy Award," a precedent which we hope will be
carried on in future plays, was awarded to Linda Anderson as the best actress.

The 1959 Embers is the result of many hours of work
by a number of people. We have tried to create a book
which perpetuates Amity tradition and yet represent the
individuality and spirit of our class. In our work since
September we have caused minor and major disturb-
ances from our paper-lined office, hounded staff mem-
bers for assignments and demanded precedence when
it was unreasonablep but we think that the end has justi-

fied the means. Our appreciation is due to all members
of our patient faculty. ln particular we wish to thank
Mrs. Zilli, Mr. Fay, and Mr. Holmberg for their extensive
watching, reminding, threatening - and helping. We
hope that this book will become a treasured reminder to
all students of their high school years and we offer our
sincere wishes for success to our classmates.
The ambitious efforts of every member of the '59 Embers Business
Board made possible this improved yearbook. By selling advertisements
and subscriptions they surpassed their high goal and allowed dreams
of color and a summer supplement to become a reality.
Abundance of talent and
diligent work were the key
factors of the success of this
year's Art Board. Under the
direction of Mr. Fay, illustra-
tions of excellent quality were
obtained after careful prepa
ration and selection.

The Student Council's projects this year began with
the traditional Welcome Dance and continued with
the co-sponsorship of the Variety Show, petitioning
for Senior seating privileges, a Christmas Toy Drive,
sponsoring the performance of Shakespearean play-
ers, ancl taking charge of elections at the State Fed-
eration of Student Council's convention.
For the first time, the Student Council of Amity was
divided into two entirely separate Junior and Senior
High School groups. Meeting twice weekly, with ex-
ecutive and committee meetings held even more
often, this Senior High Council undertook the difficult
job of revising their constitution.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to
everyone for helping the Council of 1958-1959 to maintain, if not sur-
pass, a standard of achievement in keeping with the projected goals of
the Councils which have preceded us.
To the members of the Executive Board, the chairmen, and the
members of the numerous committees who worked so zealously on our
many proiects, l extend my particular thanks.
Personally, I would like to thank everyone in the school for ex-
pressing their faith in me by electing me President. I hope that I, and
the rest of the Executive Board, have instituted programs and accepted
your suggestions for the improvement of our school's curriculum that
will have beneficial effects for every student of Amity in the future.

"" Can you imagine how Maddy Champagne will pass the physical for Bowdoin?
Can you imagine Barbara Hart not wiggling?
With its two returning veterans, Bob Gill
and Bob Brush, whose scores averaged in
the 80's last year, the golf team had an
admirable season. Steve Knup and Frank
Volonis, the team's newest member, added
to the force the needed boost to give it its
standing in the district league.
The Amity bowling team with its captain Dick
Kehrer as high scorer, placed well in league
competition. Despite a pending void of four
seniors next year, Coach Metz feels the team
will, nevertheless, keep its standards high.
" Can you imagine Kim Kellner disinterested in the other sex?

The Girls' Varsity Basketball Team this year was
captained by Judy Hoppe and Barbara Boisvert, and
managed by Barbara Hart and Maureen Cunning-
ham. The team ended a successful season with a vic-
tory dinner and a 3-3-l record.
The enthusiastic Varsity Field Hockey Team braved
a rainy fall season to emerge victorious. Under the
able coaching of Miss Mercer and Miss Jablonski, the
team played seven public and private schools in the
area. Managed and captained by Helen Putzel, the
girls earned the final record of four wins, two losses,
and one tie.
