TI-IE CLASS QF 1967
SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL
Richard B. Ayers
The word uteacherv signifies many things to many peopleg too often, it implies
only uninspired instruction, too rarely warm, personal dedication. Every teacher be-
comes known for his methods and attitudes, but few gain the respect and friendship
so necessary for ideal teacher-student relationships.
Mr. Ayers is of this select few. His inherent warmth and concern for the indi-
vidual pervade his classroom. His humor and his interest in both the subject and the
students create a relaxed atmosphere in which learning is individualized and enjoy-
able. He commands respect.
Few people are aware of the time, thought, and encouragement he contributes
to the Embers Editorial Board, this hook is testimony to his interest and dedication.
The qualities Mr. Ayers possesses as a person and an advisor make him more
than a teacher. This book is dedicated to him as an educator.

HOWARD D. BROOKS
This is not only my last 'cmessagen for the Embers but is, I believe, the most
difficult one for me to write. It is difficult because of all that could he said and be-
cause of a lack of certainty that, at this point, it needs to be said. It is difficult be-
cause of the knowledge that, with age, we increasingly look at the past while you,
in your youth, look toward the future. Perhaps maturity of thought involves, in part,
a conscious effort to look at both and to relate the future to the past and the past to
the future. If so, I hope that, in the future, you remember your years at Amity as
being not only pleasant and stimulating hut as significant and productive.
Because of you, and many other Amity graduates before you, these will be my
Howard D. Brooks
If an entire school, its values, and its traditions can be said to
be the products of one man's initiative and dedication then Amity
as we know it is the result of the untiring efforts of Howard D
Brooks. This final year of the old Amity is also the last year 1n which
Mr. Brooks will he Superintendent of Schools but the Splflt ln wh1ch
he has guided us will be an integral part of the Amity of the
future. For his unselfish devotion to Amity whether It is the Amity
that we all know or the new Amity that he helped to create the
students of Amity wish to thank him and wish him continued success
BOARD OF EDUCATION

The Class of 1967 of Amity Regional High School is
about to be graduated. I congratulate you all on the advan-
tages you have had and trust you have utilized all of the op-
portunities that the school has had to offer.
We feel that Amity is one of the best in the country. The
Board of Education has provided, with the support of your
parents and neighbors, the best in buildings, staff and
administration. The Board extends its best wishes to each
of you, and also to Howard D. Brooks, your superintendent,
as each of you leaves to a future that we hope will be filled
with success and happiness.
ROCCO ORLANDO, Principal
The Hseason, time and purposei' at hand provide us, very happily, with the
opportunity to commend the achievements of the Class of 1967, as Well as your
individual and group contributions to our school.
Graduation, a significant milestone in oneis educational life, marks not
the end of learning, but rather the continuation of learning which will be applied
to the goals and high ambitions of each of you. We can only hope that we have
contributed in some small measure to those goals and ambitions.
Your teachers through the years have striven to provide you with the tools
of learning, a solid foundation with which you may continue to explore and
comprehend the World about you. If your teachers have been successful, you are
leaving Amity touched by the magic that makes you aware of the heritage of
mankind - a heritage which has carried man out of the darkness of the cave
and placed him on the dim edge of space looking outward, a heritage which
says that only an enlightened life is Worth living. That heritage is yours.
JAMES PETERS, Assistant Principal
To all of manis endeavors there is a purpose and with-
out it his efforts would be meaningless. He strives to gain, to
improve and to accomplish that which will give him a satis-
fying and rewarding life, and permit him to be a good
contributing member of the society in which he lives. To do
this he must set his goals, learn, develop skills and attitudes
and live co-operatively with his fellow man.
We are certain that you have taken advantage of the
opportunities afforded in all the activities of the program at
Amity to set your goals, to work to achieve them and to
evaluate the results. You have learned muchg your contribu-
tions have been many and we are certain that you will go
forth into the world of work or further study with high
ideals, fine preparation, and an assurance of a job well done.
We appreciate the services you have rendered the school and
wish each and every one of the class of 1967 our best wishes
for the future in whatever field of endeavor you may choose.
The mission of education is to equip young Americans
for life in our democracy and, where possible, to provide
leadership capable of meeting the issues which must be faced
and settled. Our academic obligation goes far beyond a
preparation for a livelihood, whether in business or in any
of the professions. It calls for the production of the citizens
who have assimilated the best in our cultural inheritance
and who with this background can broadly interpret the
problems of the present, while assuming responsibility for
the guidance of public opinion and public action.
We at Amity feel confident that you, the Class of 1967,
can look back upon your school years in the knowledge that
you have been provided with abundant opportunities to
prepare for such awesome responsibilities. Your contribu-
tions at Amity in a short span of years give promise of
future success in assuming these responsibilities. I wish
to express my personal appreciation to you for the good
years We have just concluded and to extend to you the chal-
lenge of fulfilling the mission of a democratic education.

To the Class of 1967:
Change seems to have been your heritage. Others will
prefer to say you have had to learn to adjust to new situ-
ations, ideas, and times. Both may well be true in some
sense. However, it has been your right to choose and to do or
not to do. You chose the manner in which you would exploit
your years at Amity, your chance to learn, to prepare and
to change. That time is past and you will enter into new
times and places which will never remain static. You will
mold and build them through your actions and decisions or
lack of them. Their styles and values will inevitably be yours.
We believe you are prepared to continue to learn, to adapt
and adopt ideas and values on a rational basis. If this process
of learning and choosing continues, your individual times
should be good. .

Ha sido para mi una experien-
cia maravillosa haber sido un estu-
diante en Amity. Siempre he en-
contrado algo nuevo e interesante
que conocer es esta comunidad
estaudinense. Mediante la con-
vivencia he llegado a adquirir
gran conocimiento y entendi-
miento de sus constumbres y de
su vida en general. Estoy muy
contento de contribuir a la amis-
tad entre nuestras dos naciones
que espero perdure para siempre.
It has been a marvelous experi-
ence for me to be a student at
Amity. I have always found
something new and interesting
to learn about this American
community. Through living here
every day,I have been able to
acquire a great knowledge and
understanding of its customs and
of its life in general. I am very
happy to contribute to the friend-
ship between our two nations,
which I hope will continue for-

This summer has been by far the
most interesting of my life. I
learned many things about Japan,
particularly that America and ,Ia-
pan can be alike and very different
at the same time. Young people
our age seem to have something in
common all over the world. The
unanimous decision of my forty-
eight fellow Americans and me is
that A.F.S. is just the greatest pro-
gram ever invented. I know I will
remember my family and home in
Tokyo for the rest of my life.
Jeanne Moore - Germany
It was not an easy decision to go to a foreign
country and to a strange family. Jeanne has been
received into Dr. Bernhardt Brinkmann's family as
a daughter and as a sister to his own six children.
,Ieanne's father, Cdr. Patrick Moore, and her foster
father, Dr. Brinkmann, served in their countries'
Navies during World War II on opposite sides.
Both men wish to show their children that this
way is the best way - to make a connection be-
tween them, to have peace in the world. Dr. Brink-
mann wishes to show his children that an American
girl thinks and lives in the same way as they -
and he Wishes to give an American girl the experi-
ence to see that they have the same concept of life
as her parents in America.

For the Student Council 1966-1967 has been a year characterized by tradition,
innovation, success, and failure.
Many activities and operations planned by the council were designed to generate
congeniality, pleasure, and improvement of the lot of the student body. By virtue of
the participation by so many students, we were able to accomplish a great deal despite
the many obstacles caused by the growing pains of a new addition.
Commencing with the overwhelming reception given "Kickoff" the Welcome
Dance, which initiated Amity's social season, the Council provided. a full program
for a memorable year. Record hops, the annual spring dance, and a casual and re-
laxed Bermuda Day in May were the results of more obvious efforts of the repre-
sentatives. Sponsorship of this year's American Field Service student, Guillermo
"Boppy" Oliveros from Colombia, South America, and preparation for next year's
received a large share of the organizationis attention. The legislative agenda was also
highlighted by the consideration of a driver education course, after-school movies,
and S.A.T. tutoring.
With the generous and untiring help of Miss Barbara' ,loan Sheedy, our new
faculty advisor, we solved numerous problems that might otherwise have proved
diiiicult. Mr. Ernest Haas, our rookie school store advisor, initiated a completely new
system of reorganizing his department with the cooperation and help of those who buy
and sell its merchandise.
We of the Student Council hope that our efforts, resulting in disappointments
as well as achievements, will help future Councils at Amity to build an even greater

For the first time, the Trident began its year Hnancially solvent. Despite an in-
creased treasury, the staii maintained the offset issue rather than linotype, because
oifset affords an opportunity for more pictures and a more casual approach. John
Shutkin's second year as Editor-in-Chief provided more experience and organization.
Continued emphasis was placed on feature articles and photographs. Boys, and girls'
fashion photos were continued. The ninth Miss Trident was crowned at the varsity-
faculty basketball game, and Pandemonium II, the second Trident-sponsored rock and
roll show was presented in February. As Milton R. Cohen, the faculty advisor says,
"Happiness is reading the Trident." Everyone reads it, even non-subscribers.
The Spotlight, the literary
magazine of Amity, contains
various forms of writing from
the poet, to the critic. Under

gartner, the club reviews all
forms of creative writing
handed in by the student body.

The Amity Review is a journal of literary expression reflecting a
wide range of interests. The student body contributes material to the
Review, whose staff is headed by four editors and a faculty advisor,
Robert McQuaid. The Review claims no opinion as its own, but instead
is governed by the interests of the student body.
M' FOREIGN REVIEW
The purpose of the Foreign Review is to pub-
lish the students' non-assigned creative writing
at all levels in the four languages taught at
Amity: French, German, Spanish, and Latin.
Under the supervision of Katherine Passias, the
Review brought out two issues this year as op-
,gmmn pose to last year's one. Both issues contained
pieces of poetry, cross word puzzles, and short

guage learners became a full-fledged club
under the leadership of Evelyn Strauch.
Walking into the room at the beginning of
this year, one might hear doleful Russian

"Tug, you're it!"
The Spartans posted a 3-5 record in
the Housatonic League this season. The
Housatonic teams are well known as
rougher teams than those that play in
the District League of which Amity
had previously been a member. The
Spartans were under the watchful eye
of coaches John Janenda and Bill John-
son. They, with the invaluable aid of
Captain Pete McHugh, showed the drive
and spirit needed to win. The Spartans
were hampered throughout the season
by injuries, but still managed to defeat
some old rivals and provide tough com-
petition for new ones. Outstanding
playing by seniors Danny Kearnsg'
Phil'Welch, Glenn Brushett, Rick Haus-
er, and Mike Jordan, and steady con-
tributions hy underclassmen Bob
Brinley, Gary Rondina, and Rick Ros-
towski, resulted in a solid team this

liams provided the nucleus for an energetic team. Rich Martin continued his
fine play at the goal. The team put forth its finest eiiort in rising to tie the
State Tournament-bound Lyman Hall team.

The cross country team, led by Co-Cap-

finished their 1967 season with a record of
6-1. This record included the first victory
over Notre Dame in the history of Amityas
team. The best race of the season was won
by Bob Heavens at the Housatonic League
meet, which Amity won. The team qualified
for the State finals at New Britain, where
they did a fine job by defeating strong
teams from Notre Dame and Staples. Spe-
cial credit for the successes of this year go
to Captain Ernie Pagliaro, Bob Heavens,
and John Hubbard.

The basketball team, under Coach James "Bones"
Kenney, completed their best season in three years
with a 4-14 record. ln the face of injuries and other
setbacks fmuddy courts, wind resistance, and dis-
tracting cheerleadersl , team loyalty and Spartan
dedication to captain Glenn Brushett made the sea-
son unique. First string seniors Richard Martin and
,lack Rosa, aided by exceptional juniors Greg White
and Tom Fortune, were high scorers for the season.
Prospects for next year are bright because of strong
underclass participation and cooperation.

Adding insult to iniury
The 1966-67 hockey season started off well for the
team with the defeat of New Canaan, Hillhouse, and Wil-
bur Cross, and then slowed down with losses to West
Haven and Hamden. Amity staged a comeback by beat-
ing Hopkins, Hillhouse, and Wilbur Cross, but lost
ground again in defeats by West Haven and Hamden.
At the Hockey Jamboree, the Spartans won one, lost one
and tied two. Outstanding contributions by co-captains
Stan Figlewski and Bill Cahoon plus loyal team support
leave the team with a 6-4 record for the season.

The tennis team looks forward to surpassing last year's record of 7-5. Aided by
strong sophomores and returning lettermen John Shutkin, Marc Sarkady, Rick War-
ren, Mark Gredinger, Steve Powell, and Captain Greg Davis, the team should have the
needed experience to top their opposition. Kenneth Oliver, the rookie coach, anticipates
victories over competition from both the District and Housatonic Leagues, as well as
from other independent schools.

With three of last year's starters returning and a

team looks forward to at least equaling last year's
second place finish in the Housatonic League. Pos-
sessing two of New EI1gland's top junior golfers in
senior Captain J im Piccolo and sophomore Ed Day,
the Spartans are confident that last year's record
of 12-2 should be attainable this year. Coach George
Metz feels that the real success of the team hinges
on how well returning letterman John Harrison and
Pat Birkenmeyer play. If the players, games improve
early, the team should be a real threat, not only for
the Housatonic League crown, but also in the State
After finishing the regular season in a three-way
tie for second place with North Haven and Eli Whit-
ney, the bowling team generated a tremendous ef-
fort in the subsequent playoff by scoring 1704 pins
to Eli Whitney's 1702 and North Havenas 1672. The
team record for the season was 26-16. Paul Fraser
rolled the highest individual game of the season, a
1418, while Bob Lyon took high three game series
honors with a 389. High season averages were held
by Bob Lyon, 107, and Captain Richard DeCrosta,
106. Coach George Metz was very proud of the
fortitude, spirit, and sportsmanship exhibited by
the team throughout the season.

twirling squad is difficult at best. However, Amityis major-
ettes have shown that dedication and hard work can produce
this success. During the three years since the group was or-
ganized, its members have won various awards in competi-
tions throughout the state. ln particular the dance twirl
routine, "Little Devilf' performed by seniors Ruth Blenner-
hassett, Sandra Bathgate, Linda Giordano, and Kathleen
Spinelli, has been awarded many trophies.
