Kappstatter Associate Make-up Editor_______Gloria Compitclli General Coordinator Miss G. Howardto The voyagers on our journey who won the admiration of their fellow passengers were the winners of the "A” Pin. These voyagers worked diligently in many extra - curricular activities to prove themselves worthy of wearing the pin which can only be awarded by the students. Those who obtained this honor were: Carylmae Abrahams, Louise Augsdorfer, Barbara O’Brien, Yvonne Counts, Henry Crump, Mary Folarno, Luciann Keezmerski, Marcia Kramer, Thomas Natalini and Marie Perelcs. A group of seamen who guided their ship successfully to the ports of scholarship, leadership, character and service was the M. Bernice Hamilton Chapter of the National Honor Society. The officers were: Carter Bennett, president; Carylmae Abrahams, vice-president; Yvonne Counts, secretary; and Arnold Kaplan, treasurer. Mr. Clamur-ro acted as moderator. Seamen included: Bridget Ascolese, Joseph Carangelo, Ronald Cullis, Lorraine Gcisslcr, Henry Kaneps, Luciann Keezmerski, Marcia Kramer, Glen Kuber, John Mar-gotta, James O’Bosky, Leona Ostcrwcil, Marie Percies, Harvey Slansky and Anita Torrioni. NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY81 YVONNE COUNTS A happy combination of sportsmanship, leadership and character were qualities possessed by our Deputy Mayor, Yvonne Counts. WM Jk i PETER POTOSKY Strong in mind and character was Peter. As Mayor of the school, he performed his duties with a never failing energy and patience. THE STUDENT COUNCIL Our Student Council, enabled everyone to have a voice in the affairs of the ship. The Council supervised many of the vessel’s activities including the annual barn dance, the variety show and the after school movie. During a special assembly they provided the Orson Welles production of Macbeth. The officers were: Peter Potosky, president; Yvonne Counts, vice-president; Patricia Delli Santc, secretary; and Lawrence Yannuzzi, treasurer. Mr. Chinoy and Mrs. Longley were the advisors.82 The log of the voyage was kept in a great volume, the Scope. All activities and business transactions were recorded here. In the picture, from left to right, are: Henry Kaneps, art editor; Patricia Delli Sante, feature editor; Richard Tortoricllo, editor-in-chief; Ronald Cullis and Marilyn Mamco, news editors; William Portington, art editor. Absent from the picture was Eleanor Coaklcy, a news editor. Mr. Rickcnbacher was the advisor. Mrs. Hopper gave advice concerning the illustrations and Mr. Kappstatter was the business advisor. SCOPE STAFF LIBRARY GUILD On our ship, wc were fortunate enough to have a well equipped library. Members of the Library Guild, under the direction of Miss Lchlback, were in charge of these two rooms on the fourth deck. The students performed their duties well during their stay aboard the "Arts High.” The Guild members came to our aid innumerable times when wc were "at sea” in the vast library. The officers of the group were: Marcia Kramer, president; Cathy Blank, vice-president; and Katina Pilavakis, secretary.The most selfless voyagers on our ship were the members of the Junior Red Cross. They collected Easter baskets for children in the nurseries and for patients in the Crippled Children’s Hospital and in the City Hospital. They also sent books and magazines to veterans’ hospitals and cards to the children who were victims of Cerebral Palsy. Miss Kruck was the moderator and the officers were: Marie Percies, president; Yvonne Counts, vice-president; and Pat Delli Same, secretary. Representatives from every homeroom participated in the activities of these voyagers. A group that moved quietly through the ship accomplishing many things, was the School Service Club. Their watchful eyes and warning voices maintained order in the passageways. In addition, they also assisted the principal, vice-principal, and the office staff when called upon. Mr. Misurcll directed their activities. In the back row are: Thomas Kropilak, Marvin Mo-schel, Philip Sadio, Yvonne Counts, Elizabeth Knakicwicz, I.uciann Keezmerski, Virginia Gulick, Duane MeGuiness, and Lois McDonald. In the front row are Carol Leach and Mary Folarno.84 The passageways of our boat were decorated by a group called the Art Service Club. The club made posters for all the events on board, and aided the ship in innumerable artistic ways. The pilot of this group was Mrs.Hopper. The officers were: Grace Werner, president; Meredith Luhrs, vice-president; Katina Pilavakis, secretary; and Rox-olana Pawlayshyn, treasurer. Senior members included: Henry Crump, Joseph Guarino, Henry Kaneps, Steve Kaufman, Marcia Kramer, and Shirley Shulman. A recreational activity popular aboard our ship was the Craft Club. This group created many unique and interesting craft items from wire, sheet metal and leather for the enjoyment of members and other passengers. Mr. Landsman gave his able advice to the voyagers who were: Dcidrc Asclford, Donald Crews, Kathleen Delaney, Esther Elias, Robert Giilard, Phyllis Hughes, Richard Karp, Arthur Knob-lock, Henrietta Koch, Carole Lambert, Charles Mayes, Leona Ostcrweil, Joe Petoia, Joe Seals, and Jacqueline Weiner. ART SERVICE CLUB85 On the ship, a popular club which offered its members a way to enlarge their talents in creative work was the Pottery Club. Under the skilled direction of Miss I lowc, the students made their own ceramic pieces from original molds. Many of these beautiful objects were sold at the Christmas Fair. David Morris was the president of this group; Leona Ostcrwcil was the vice-president, and Esther Elias was the secretary-treasurer. POTTERY CLUB PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB This club appealed to many passengers. Under the guidance of Mr. Lowry, photography grew to be a fascinating study. The members of this group kept pictorial records of our passengers and our voyage. They chose for their leaders: Winne Kurak, president; Leon Davis, vice-president; Diane Competelli, secretary; and Robert Kennedy, treasurer. Many of the members arc planning to continue in this field after leaving the ship.86 DRAMA CLUB Under the direction of Mrs. Cozzens, the Drama Club presented many worthwhile productions. This term’s officers were: Valerie Horne, president; Irene Stcckcw, vice-president; Cathy Blank, secretary; Patricia Dclli Santc, chairman of programs. Last term’s officers were: Barbara O’Brien, Katina Pila-vakis, Phyllis Guiliano and Marcia Kramer.

(Front Row) Marcia Kramer, Irene Stcckcw, Katina Pilavakis, Lorraine George, Fred Ruggiero, Barbara O’Brien. Among the many activities of the Science Club were the preparation of interesting exhibitions, the building of an animal collection, and the taking of trips to New York. Advised by Mr. Misurcll, the group performed many unusual feats for both their enjoyment and education. The club included: Donald Travisano, president, Deirdre Asclford, Pat Delli Sante, Madge Frciwald, Josephine Gurnari, John Hucthcr, Rosemarie Lou-rciro. Bill Lovallo, Barbara McCorkcndalc. Renee Feuer-horn. Grace Stcinmann, Bette Stout, Sally Strychncwicz, Joan Sulvcr, Ray Talazzo, Gerry Weiner, and Dean Work. SCIENCE CLUB87 SPANISH CLUB An opportunity for students to supplement their knowledge of the folkways of Spanishspeaking countries was offered by the Spanish Club. Trips to New York City’s Spanish restaurants and amusements were made annually. This group, under the direction of Miss David, entertained themselves and their fellow passengers with the songs and dances of our southern neighbors. Each year, at Christmas time, they presented a Posada. Ronald Cullis was president; Louise Augsdorfer, vice-president; and Mary Folarno, secretary-treasurer. BAND Under the direction of Mr. D’Amico, the musicians were: Mary Ann Chutsanis, Louis Di Bella, Shirley Dietz, Carmella Echo, Mike Ester, Mike Faiella, Nick Forte, Richard Giles, Marvin Goldman, Phyllis Guiliano, Walter Gulerl, Ira Halpcrin, Virginia Holmes, Sabina Ianuzzi, Michael Iovino, Thomas Jones, Patsy Landolphi, Louis Leone, John Margotta, Diane Margulics, Thomas Matthews, Ivy Myers, Peter Poto-sky, Anthony Prockclo, Edna Reid, Hazel Reid, Don Ross, Arthur Schroeck, Mary Ann Scalcrcio, Patsy Senatore, I low-ard Shipley, Harold Taylor, Louis Tobic, Dolores Val, Frances Winskus, Doris Wooton, Annette Yannacone, Larry Yan-nuz .i, Gerry Zabinsky, and Ralph Zcitlin.88 The passageways of our ship were filled with melodic music from the Mixed Chorus. The chorus under the direction of Mr. Marchesc, and recently of Mr. Pickett, has proudly represented Arts High at other ports. For the ship’s annual spring concert the chorus sang the following selections. '‘Alleluia”—Randall Thompson, "Echo Song”— di Lasse, "Annie Laurie”— Mansfield, "Madame Jeanette” —Murray, and "Exultate Deo" —Mabel Daniels. This magnificent performance was repeated for the Commencement exercises. Surely, life aboard the "Arts High” would never have been so interesting without the ship’s orchestra. This group furnished the beautiful music that helped make our opera such a success. Although very young, the "Arts High’s” Orchestra has already received widespread recognition for its achievements. Led by the able Mr. Pesile, they have given to passengers in the ship’s assembly and to other people in various ports, excellent demonstrations of their ability. They are far too numerous to name separately in this space, but the entire ship will always remember the orchestra.89 MIXED CHORUS (Con’t.) ARTS HIGH ORCHESTRA (Con’t.) In September of 1952, violinists Theresa Augsdorfer and Arlene Moldofsky were the only two representatives of the string section carried over from the previous year. Two freshmen, Richard Karl and Robert Judd, joined the group, giving us a nucleus of four violinists. Since it was necessary to have a complete string section, two string classes were organized. They were composed of six violins, two violas, three cellos, and four basses, bringing the total up to twenty students and representing a complete string section. This group, along with woodwinds, brass and percussion, made up an orchestra which gave its first performance at the January graduation exercises, with great success.90 Ably providing good music at the ship’s balls, and during the intermissions at the various dramatic performances were the Green Jackets. They were a well-liked, talented group aboard the ship. Advised by Mr. D’Amico, the group included: Mike Ester, Mike Faiella, Nick Forte, Marvin Goldman. Ira Halperin, Tom Jones, Pat Landolfi, John Mar-gotta, Don Moore, Arthur Schroeck, Pat Senatore, Larry Yannuzzi, and Gerry Zabrinsky. GREEN JACKETS CAPTAINBALL TEAM A popular sport well-known to our female voyagers was Cap-tainball. The Senior A girls by winning the school tournament proved that they really knew how to play the game. This was the third term they had won the championship. The team members, captained by Lorraine Gcisslcr, included: Theresa Augsdorfer, Mary Davenport, Dolores Domcnick, Grace Dorf-man, Muriel Flanagan, Evelyn Johnson, Luciann Kec .merski, Marcia Kramer, Bertha Patterson and Marie Percies.91 Despite some veteran crew members-from last year, the ship Basketball, piloted by Captain Richard Freeland, was only able to make port with winning sails flying seven out of sixteen trips. The sloop’s co-captain was Joe Domeraski and the crew included: Joe Guarino, Herbert Marshall, Kenneth Moore, Julius Nicolai, Philip Sadio and Donald West. To bolster the morale of our athletes, we had a group of girls known as the Cheering Squad. In their lovely green and white uniforms they shouted the praises of our team and led the ship in its cheering. The cocaptains of this group were: YvonneCounts and Carol Leach, assisted by Gloria Shaw, Joan Lasky, Doris Picchna, Barbara Sherman, Adelaide Hall, Irene Rogowski, and Mary Folarno. Nancy McColl, Leona Zerinsky, and Euna Ellington do not appear in the picture. BASKETBALL TEAM92 A few boys, eager to increase their athletic prowess while aboard the ship, joined the Gym Team. This team, under the direction of Mr. Criswell, practiced on the gym apparatus. Once a year the entire boat was thrilled by a demonstration of their skills. The team members were: Captain Thomas Kropilak, William Nagengast, William Carpenter, Richard Burke,Richard Karp, Richard Gega, Anthony Basilc, Ncutic Fudge, Donald Laws, Howard Shipley, Alan Zinn, Charles Mayes, Chris Tri-andafilou, Ronald Rauto, Everett Winrow, and Thomas McGuire. Perhaps it is natural for the voyagers of a ship to be good swimmers. Several boys on the "Arts High” excelled to the degree of being crowned "City Champions.” The Swimming Team quickly won our confidence and admiration. The boys, under Mr. Criswell, learned their lessons well. Richard Boland, Ronald DeVita, Robert Gillard, William Gillard, Ronald Hutchins, Thomas Kropolack, Robert Lovvorn, James O’Bosky, Dennis Szcjman, Ralph Torlucci, Everett Winrow and Peter Woj-tack were captained by John McCracken. SWIMMING TEAM GYM TEAM93 TRACK TEAM Our Track Team demonstrated ability and speed in every meet. Coached by Mr. Criswell, the team shows great promise for future contests. Members are: Ray Abrams, Richard Boland, Richard Burke, Joe Carangelo, Bill Carpenter, Alan Crenshaw, Nathaniel Fields, Bob Gillard, Tom Kropilak, Ronald La Duca, James Ligon, Herman Love, Herbert Marshall, Stephen May, Charles Mayes, William Nagen-gast, Frank Nigro, Frank Polito, Otha Reese, Lawrence Roberts, Malachi Rountree, Ray Saxe, Robert Thompson, Ralph Tor-lucci, Richard Tortoriello, Donald West, Frank Williams, Kenneth Wood, Alan Zinn. No matter where American boys voyage, baseball will be played. Although this year’s team was hampered by the graduation of several of the key players, the coach, Mr. Morris, looked forward to a season as successful as the last. Julius Nicolai was the captain, and Richard I.apslcy, the manager. The team included: Donald Wilson, Joseph Domeraski, Thomas Carr, Ronald Hutchins, Everett Winrow, Robert Cisco, Richard Larson, Carter Bennett, Calvin Martin and Raymond Gicsser.cnneth Moore waits for an opening as he attempts to pass the hall. liig Chief Waho Little Papoose Arts High is on the loose Phillip Sailio dribbles the ball.

Arts High’s Swimming Team, after closing a victorious season with an 8-2 record, added the finishing touches by winning the City Swimming Meet. The Championship, the first in the history of the school, was a tribute to the fine coaching of Mr. Criswell who had been grooming this team for the past two seasons. The team won the city meet by nosing out its closest competition by half a point. The only individual first place taken in the meet was scored by Ronald Hutchins in the 100-yard free style. We are very proud of this team which has brought fame to Arts High. Conrad leslin touches the ceiling with his toes.
