SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
When we enfered Arnold in I944, we became parf of a sfudenf
body which was small in numbers buf mighfy in spirif. If seemed our Iof
fo have heaped upon us more hazing, inifiafions, Icifchen dufies, camp
consfrucfion, and final exams fhan any ofher class in ArnoId's hisfory.
Our "sigma" Iala Dr. Fieldl was high as proven by fhe way in which we
came fhrough such advenfures as cake parfies for deparfing servicemen
and we endured all successfully fo become sophomores. Our number
which was fourfeen af fhe beginning had now declined fo four, Jaclc
Vefs, Winnie Vafh, Rosemary DePaIma and Berf Barbeau.
Fall of '45 saw us welcoming a new freshman class and fwo new
members of our own, Joe Vifale and Bill Ressler. We aroused fhe envy
of fhe freshmen and seniors by profifing fo fhe fune of SI.65 on our
"Shamrock Swing." Our financial wizardry was fo sfand us in good sfead
on several more occasions fhroughouf fhe year and came May we were
divided befween accepfing an offer by fhe Sfoclc Exchange fo hire us
enmasse or fo sfay on of fair A.C.I-I.P.E.
We waifed longer fhan usual for our summer vacafion fo end in
I946. The reason was fhaf Minerva had oufgrown her quarfers on Whif-
ney Avenue and was casfing abouf for new diggings. When school
finally commenced in November, we arrived af Pond Poinf pleasanfly
impressed by a glorious seffing and a group of buildings fhaf definifely
could be remodeled info a firsf class college.
Having survived many losses during our freshman and sophomore
years, we began fo grow during our junior fenure. New members were
Dorofhy Corbeff from Sargenf, William Irons from N.Y.U., Nafalie
Smolen from Universify of Oklahoma, Alberf Jusfice and Walfers Pefers
from Ifhaca College. Arnold had an amazingly large sfudenf body, a
sifuafion broughf abouf by fhe addifion of a huge freshman class which
followed a Iarge sophomore class. During our iunior year we were
faced by many conflicfs buf our dear friends Dr. Brefzfelder, Mr. Glasser,
and Miss Gilberf were very helpful. Lafer in fhe fall ferm we gave a
cabaref dance which was a big success.
The spring ferm found us rarin' fo go on our iunior pracfice feach-
ing. We found ourselves fo be smaller cogs in fhe wheel of educafion
fhan we had expecfed fo be buf realized fhaf observafion was a neces-
sary parf of our fraining.
The Junior-Senior Prom af fhe New Haven Lawn Club was brighf-
ened by 'rhe gowns of various colors on fhe Arnold girls and was indeed
fhe gala affair of fhe school year.

The fall of I947 found all of us excepf Bill Granfield and Dominick
DiVifo back in fhe now familiar environs of Arnold. The place had been
improved wifh fhe addifion of a pracfice foofball field, several new
insfrucfors including fwo foofball coaches and, lesf we forgef, one wafer
cooler. Ground was soon fo be broken for fhe new gym. One fradifion
had been mainfained, however, fhaf was fhe fime honored conflicfing
schedule buf iusf when if looked as if we musf do wifhouf one or more
imporfanf subiecfs, Miss Gilberf, bless her, came fo our rescue.
The Senior Prom was given for us by fhe iunior class af fhe Hofel
Taff. Everyone enjoyed fhis affair which we 48'ers probably will remem-
May is nearly over now and we are abouf fo receive our Bachelor's
degrees in bridge, conflicfs, coffee consuming and classroom locafing.
We furn over fhe leadership of Arnold fo a spirifed if unconvenfional
