1956 4 Annual Publication of the Senior Classes Arts High School, 550 High Street, Newark 2, New Jersey This is Channel 25. AHS-TV. For twenty-five years AHS has offered educational, cultural and social programs designed to provide a good general background for students interested in developing artistic talents and appreciation for the arts. Even more important. It provides students with valuable opportunities, through classes, clubs, sports and student council, to learn to work cooperatively with others, to get along with them and to develop real leadership. In our studio many interesting programs are born. Some of these are dramatic, others ortistic, and still others are musical in nature, but all are educational. There are no closed doors here at AHS-TV. The opportunities for success are many and the degree of success attained is solely dependent upon one's ambition and desire to learn. There is much activity at our station now, for two shows which have been televised for a long time are preparing to leave and move to larger studios. We sincerely hope that this book will always recreate for the cast and technicians in words and pictures memorable scenes of their life here on Channel 25 during their high school years.fll ' .................................... ::: ■ .-: 'Kw;«w Z y y.y. ■■■■ IvXv.vX;Miss Ruth Eddy A IN MEMORIAM B.A. degree from Goucher College Treated students as mature individuals Took a personal interest in them Her character was of the highest Was intensely devoted to teaching Took care of aging parents 1954 Class Advisor Expected more of a brighter student One had to work to full capacity Knew her job thoroughly Didn't let her students know she was ill Took education and teaching very seriously Was respected by students and faculty Made sure students did work Wanted to help everyone pass Was liked by students Knew her subject so well she didn't have to use a book while teaching Dignified, yet friendly Excellent example of devotion to job Was interested in the International Forum Made history interesting Showed absolute fairness Very unselfish Wonderful co-worker Had keen understanding of young people Loved flowers, books, music, and the piano Didn't travel much Insisted on accuracy in work Had high standards Had students’ interest at heart Was willing to help them before and after school Worked to the last moment Skillful, hardworking, friendly, and just Was a charter member of the faculty Advocated a formal classroom atmosphere Miss Eddy’s life was one of dedicated and devoted service to others.

SEAMSTER B.A., M.A., Ph.D. Principal AHS-TV is privileged to celebrate another big event, the arrival of our new associate director. Mrs. Beatrice G. Geller. Mrs. Geller's background is both exciting and colorful. She has attended many different educational institutions including Montclair State Teachers College. Columbia University, Seton Hall University and the University of Zurich in Switzerland. She taught social studies, before becoming a hoad counselor, a position which she held for twelve years at South Side High. She has become adept at handling young people. Wo are sure that our studios, which are unique in this section of the country, will bring to her desk many different situations. She will listen to the problems of the stars, the technicians, the camera men, the audio men, the announcers and even the stage hands. We ore confident that Mrs. Geller will prove to bo a considerate and patient listener, and an even more sincere friend. DIRECTORS PLAYHOUSE For many years Dr. Seamster has seen the students of Arts High rise from shy freshmen to proud seniors. As director of our studios, he has not only seen these individuals change but he has assisted in their development. He knows of the work each individual does to make the school's daily production a success, and even when we leave, he follows our careers in the armed forces, at college, or in the world of work. He is devoted to us. the people whom he directs, and we want him to know how much we appreciate this. The greatest directors are known by their productions, and in our achievements and those of the other graduates of Arts, the master touch of Dr. Seamster can be seen. MRS. BEATRICE G.

Freshmen take time out to add som "punch" to their fun. Mrs. Sweeney tries desperately to convince her Health students that the heart is only a muscle that pumps blood. One of the most unusual programs offered by Channel 25 this past year was the Freshman Orientation. It was ably produced by a committee appointed by the Student Council. The show was designed to acquaint newcomers with the opportunities which exist in our studios. The program consisted of short extemporaneous speeches made by various representatives of the extracurricular sports and clubs. These forty-odd speeches cited the activities, accomplishments and and desirability of each group. Although this program might have had a monotonous format, the various speakers changed that. For instance, the ceramics speaker displayed some work done by the ceramist. Those blessed with the gift for informality made the audience feel right at home. But it was the activities which the speakers represented that gave the program its personality and it is these organizations and groups which give the studios a real flavor. At the close of the program, all joined in the singing of the Alma Mater. Later, the audience, speakors and production staff got a chance to socialize at a party given by the Student Council. This party, with tho music, dancing, refreshments and friendly conversation was the high spot of the occasion. The newcomers interested in obtaining additional information were urged to chat with the various speakers. The freshmen learn that for an interesting AHS career, they must become engrossed in at least one of these additional activities. The time spent viewing the program was. then, an educational forty minutes, for both the novices and the old-timers.Welcome to Arts High — our school end now yours.

OUR OPERATIC SPECTACULAR 22 Janet Cavanett. Oreleen Orr, and Ronald Seely are relating "Down in the Valley". The presentation lost sprinq of "Down in the Valley" was an entirely different production for Channel 25. A folk operetta which has a single plot depends on its cast and directors to make it a genuine success. So it was with "Down in the Valley." The staging, vocal and instrumental direction were excellently done. The scenery was of modern design and. together with the lighting, formed beautiful backgrounds for the music. "Oh, it I had th wingt of an angel," wailt Anthony Marcantuono. The plot of the operetta is quite simple. Brack Weaver, condemned to die, escapes from prison to see his love, Jennie Parsons. When he does speak with her. they relive with their memories the time they first met at Prayer Meeting and Brack took Jennie home. He asks her to the Shadow Creek dance on Saturday night, but her father forbids it. because he wants her to go with Thomas Bouche to whom he is in debt. At the dance Bouche gets drunk and picks a fight with Brack. Bouche is killed by Brack in the struggle. After this vision of the past. Brack is recaptured and put back into jail and so the story ends in tragedy. Throughout the presentation thero were times when one was inclined to laugh in glee, or to sing right out and still other times, when, if it weren’t that we were wellbred. we would have been dancing in the aisles. The charming solos, the first scene and the Prayer Meeting—the singing, shouting and clapping entranced us. It was. all in all a truly worth-while evening that wo spent with the cast of Down in the Valley.' ’Funny, but it teemed to have a different tone quality when I heard it in Carnegie Hall," mutfert Mr. Petile.TOMORROW'S CAREERS (Left) Miu Johnston.

AHS-TV studios recently sponsored a guided tour tor visitors. We wore lucky enough to receive an invitation for a special one. along with other television and radio critics. When we arrived the guide greeted us and explained that wo were to see the staff in action. The first place we visited was the art workshop. A group of scenic designers were discussing the plan and design of a house to be featured in a coming play. The script called for a special set design. And the artists were in the process of putting their ideas on paper. From there we went to one of the studios from which a few of the important programs are broadcast. The artists were painting the back drop right on the spot. In another room, we found some girls designing costumes for an operatic production. While some were sketching, others were piecing together muslin miniatures. Farther down the hall we discovered a few artists preparing oil paintings for rooms that are televised; others were modeling lamp bases, ash trays, and knick knacks which were to be used as props. These artists are particularly talented and ingenious. Of course they have to be. for producing a television program requires many different forms of art put to use in many ways. 2 Sophomores, you hove now completed your first yeor of troining ot our studios. You have graduated from mere wallc-on roles and are now experienced enough to begin playing larger parts in our productions here on Channel 25. The basic knowledge which you acquired in the past year will be of great value now that your first real chanco to prove your ability has arrived. From now on your efforts will be observed more closely and it will be up to you to prove that you have the makings of a star. It's a Great Life, being a sophomore, for now you will make yourself known as an individual performer.HOME ROOM 204 MISS THERESA DAVID First row: Robert Hill.

The Chorus, directed by Mrs. Shapiro, sing "You’ll Never Walk Alone.' 32 When one tales the AHS television station tour, he it shown many different phases of producing, directing end publicizing a proaram. One of the mo'e interesting it the use of music in the studio. As our guide showed us about, he eiplained that because sound and tho picture are equally important, music is essential. The first thing we noticed as we ontorod the auditorium was the orchestra rehearsing on stage. Their ropertoire ranges from opera overtures to modern novolties. Wo were told that later on we might hear the band play, when tho instrumentalists who woro in both organizations wore through with orchestra rehearsal. In a sound-proof (?) room on tho ne«t floor we came across a strinq quartet practicing for a program to be held that night. In one of the music workshops we came across a group of composers who wero orchestrating incidental music for a variety show. Others wero composing wholo program scores to bo used as dramatic backgrounds. Farther down tho hall we entered the room where the AHS chorus was singing. They wero running through a few compositions which were being preporod for the following week s spectacular. The boy's chorus performed especially for us. We also met the studio organists who play much of the background music for the shorter daytime programs. There were a fow pianists rehearsing with the dancers and singers for various shows. In another room, nearby, wo watched the vocal director demonstrating how to play the part of he Mikado to tho star of the forthcoming show.As Juniors you ore now ready to assume feature roles in our Channel 25 productions.

In the midst of scurrying, hurrying, noise, peace, laughter, tears, secrecy and joy, the holiday season is ushered in. Channel 25's studio Christmas is celebrated in a grand manner with a holiday fair and a semi-religious musical show. For weolts before the great day arrives, the staff is busy constructing, creating, purchasing, planning and rehearsing. The net result is a festive evening at which the Christmas spirit permeates the air. We heard of the fair by word of mouth and decided to see for ourselves all the wonderful things we had heard about this occasion. When we arrived at AHS, we were greeted by the sight of a gaily bedecked fir tree standing near the studio entrance. We heard sounds of laughter and many voices coming from the recreation rooms and headed that way. There, we parted with some hard-earned money, for who could resist the mouth watering cakes and cookies, the original greeting cards, the handmade copper jewelry, the ceramic ware or the handsewn collars and aprons? When we tired of scrutinizing the wares, wo headed for the refreshment booth which was strategically placed. Because the musical show was about to begin, we entered the main auditorium to enjoy the performance. Five tableaux were presented during which the chorus and soloists sang various carols and Christmos music. The colorful tableaux which were announced by the narrator. Fred Robinson, depicted various scenes of the Nativity. The program ended with the singing of the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel's Messiah by the AHS choir. The entire evening left us with a-glad-Christmas-is-here feeling. Gad! Just look at all thoso delicious calories! 39MR. ROCCO MISURELL B.S.. M.A. SCIENCE AHS has been doubly blessed.

This program presents the extracurricular activities of the students. All the performances occur outside regular school hours, usually once a week. The students taking advantage of these many opportunities are able to learn new and interesting skills or practice and perfect old skills which may help make their future jobs easier. Several of the clubs perform services which aid our school and the community. Tho main purpose of the activities is to get young people together to exchange ideas, to create ways for making practical use of leisure hours, and to have fun. Yet, while they are enjoying themselves thoy are strengthening character, advancing scholastically, acquiring a knowledge of good organization and developing leadership which will equip them for the United States of the future. The superb direction, production and supervision by teachers sponsoring such activities aid the students in presenting unique productions. 8SCRAFT CLUB SiHing, left to right: Adele Eisenberg.

Sometimes they contribute their talents to the commercials and at other times, to the dramatic presentations. T SQUARE AND TRIANGLE CLUB Here our future engineers and architects get their basic training.

With the help of Mr. William Pickett, their choral director, they are preparing new musical selections for our future presentations. A channel cannot function well without the able assistance of a fine business staff. The staff members with the aid of their co-ordinator. Mrs. Bette Lazar, type and mimeograph our scripts, speeches and commercials. Accuracy is essential in order that the entire group may be able to read their parts effectively.

JUNIOR RED CROSS The Junior Red Cross Chapter has been in existence since the studios were organized. The present chapter, headed by Miss Kruck, consists of two representatives from each homeroom, but others wishing to attend are always welcome. Its activities consist of mostly seasonal spectaculars, such as Christmas and Easter baskets for children in hospitals, party favors for nurseries, and gift boxes for overseas. Food, games, and other supplies are also sent to children of migrant families. Other projects that are not expected continually arise, but they are taken care of adequately.

Scholarship, leadership, character, and service are the four prime characteristics on which membership is based. Every six months recipients of this honor are chosen by a committee of the technical directors from the rostrum of experienced technicians, players and performers. They aro inducted into the society in a candlelight spectacular. Our chapter is named in honor of Miss M. Bernice Hamilton, our beloved former assistant director, and is under the supervision of Mr. Philip Clamurro. First row, left to right: Mr. Clamurro. Mi Hamilton.

OPERETTA CLUB Although this club has only recently been formed, it has proved to be a valuable addition to the extra curricular activities of musically inclined stars. Their study of the works of the old masters has increased and broadened their interest in this highly specialized field. Recently they visited the Metropolitan Opera House in New York, where they viewed the opera Rigolet-to. Their newly acquird knowledge of opera production was first utilized in their performance at Dayton Regional High School and later in one of our assembly programs. With the able assistance of the Art. Home Economics, and Practical Arts Departments, they are preparing a fabulously beautiful opera. The Mikado, as this seasons gigantic spectacular. Since the club meets every Monday after business hours, everyone who is interested in music has a chance to participate. GIRLS7 GLEE CLUB Perhaps the newest set to be constructed in our studios is this one. The girls in the studios rebelled at the idea of the boys having the only choral group. So. naturally, they organized one of their own. All ambitious young ladies with fine voices are asked to try out for parts. Mrs. Gertrude Shapiro's choral group will be constantly engaged in preparing numbers which they are resolved will outshine anything the boys do. We ore sure that out of this choos of friendly competition will come some beautiful music. We will not be surprised if some day the girls join the boys in a real festival of music. 94 First row, loft to right: Mario Mocino. Carol Pascalo. Alice Zuckowski. Eleanor Chase. Carol Brooks.

It plays music for the operas, variety shows, spectaculars, dramatic offerings and commercials. The orchestra has distinguished itself throughout the state os one of the best of its kind. Quito a few of its members showed themselves exceptional musicians by being accepted into the All-State Orchestra. Our channel is fortunate in having such a capable group. The halls of our studios echo with music, and the band takes a part in this jubilation. Under Mr. D Amico's capable direction, they render music for our shows and occasionally present a few of their own programs. The instrumentalists join in. the playing of classics as well as modern more familiar music. This year, for the first time, special awards were given to some of the older, more prominent members. With the help of our industrious band, we have all been inspired with an appreciation of music. Firtt row. left fo right: Edwerd Green.

It became popular almost immediately. Students were quick to see how closely English and lotin are related. Their knowledge of Latin grammar and vocabulary is helping them to understand and use their own language bettor. Nor is this all. Their increasing knowledge of Roman times enables them to see how much our own civilization has borrowed from the past. In that light they are better able to understand present conditions and to think in terms of improving future ways of living. Any student of Latin will agree that although it is difficult, the net result is well worth the effort put into it. This too can be said of any one of the science classes. Electives include biology, chemistry, general science and physics. In these classes many new worlds are opened to the students—in biology, the microscopic world: in chemistry, the atomic world: in general science and physics, the every day world. New worlds are also open to the math students, especially in the fields of science and engineering. The world is pretty complicated and it's getting more complicated all the time. This means that we have to have more and more specially trained people. Wo need them not only to work out the really tough problems of science—we need them more and more for the ordinary things of everyday life. When we have a good grounding in math, we learn to be really sharp in analyzing our problems. Most important of all. we learn to think better and to get the most out of life. The sum-total of accessible knowledge and the opportunity to apply it is several times greater than the knowledge and opportunities of past times. We have big plans for tomorrow. We hope to tangle successfully with all problems—and then ask for more. Mr. Tetta keep hi biology student hopping with e lively di cu ion of frog .

Considering our limited facilities and the fact that all our games are away, the team turned in an amazing performance. Although we started the season off badly we finished up by winning five of our last six ball games. The outstanding games of the year were the thrilling upsets: Good Counsel High and Bloomfield Tech. Key players this season were Mike Melchionno, Joe Davis, Eugene Black, Lou Fallone, and Bob James, a sophomore. We were proud to have this team represent our school.

Although this sport has been the least successful of all at Arts High in recent years, the track team deserves as much credit as any other team in the school. As in tho caso of our swimmers, lack of man-power kept the track men from being more successful. We did have some outstanding performers last season, however. They were Lonnie Gilchriest. Ray Alberti, Nelson Martin, and Bob James. Other important performers were Neutie Fudge, Don Crews, and Edward Johnson. (Picture at the left): Letter Miller. Mr. Criswell, Richard Kerp.

Although our swimming team was painfully undermanned this season they gave a good account of themselves at every meet. Our competition was furnished by the city league schools which usually have twice as many swimmers as we do. However, this made a victory much more satisfying to us because we knew tnat we really worked hard to win. Outstanding performers this past season were Bob Gillard. a four year veteran, Richard Hilser, Richard Morris. Andrew DiMartino. Richard Bates. Robert Bell and Peter Girruh. With many of these veterans returning next season we are looking forward to a big improvement by our swimming team. 103Gene Wichowski about to pounco on o grounder.
