Text from Pages 1 - 112 of the 1963 volume:

Annual Publication of the Senior Class of Arts High School Newark, New JerseyA wise man is strong; yea a man of knowledge increaseth in strength. - Proverbs, XXIV, 5The 1963 VIGNETTE is dedicated to Dr. Frederick C. Seamster, who is retiring after having served as principal of Arts High School since April, 1949. Over the years. Dr. Seamster has looked to the welfare of his students with complete selflessness. Seniors especially appreciate his deep concern for the student body after they have benefited from his professional assistance in solving college entrance and career-planning problems. Those of us who have brought him our problems, both academic and personal, will sorely miss the counsel of the tall, soft-spoken, grey-haired man who has helped to guide us through a crucial period in our lives. In preparing for his career. Dr. Seamster received a B.A. from Colorado State College, an M.A. from the University of Colorado, and his Ph.D. from Yale University. His understanding of young people has grown from long years of teaching and administrative experience. Dr. Seamster served as both teacher and principal in various elementary and junior high schools in Missouri and Colorado. Later, he spent two years as Professor of Education and Director of Training Schools at South Dakota State College. Dr. Seamster also taught at Yale and was a member of the State Department of Education at Jefferson City, Missouri. He has worked in Newark for the past nineteen years as Personnel Director and Principal of Arts High School. There are few students who do not, at some time during their high school careers, learn to appreciate Dr. Seamster. His staunch, persevering character is a unique one. His kindly patience and strong sense of responsibility to others have made him, in the eyes of thousands of students, a great leader. The "Good Doctor", as he is affectionately called, has dedicated his life to the educational development of young people in a manner akin to a clergyman's dedicating his life to the spiritual development of his congregation. It is with the deepest respect and admiration that the Class of 1963, on behalf of all of Arts High — both present students and alumni — extends to Dr. Seamster a most profound "Thank you".Mrs. Geller, our competent and gracious vice-principal, has always advised us wisely. Her wholehearted interest in the students is evident by her participation in and concern for all phases of school life. She performs her duties with sincerity and thoroughness and has provided us with the proper guidance and assistance that is so necessary for the growing minds of youth. As a result, Mrs. Geller has gained our confidence and won our admiration and respect. 6 Miss Alice Kcehncr has been teaching at Arts High for many years. She is a delightful and charming lady whose ready smile and quick wit have won her the admiration of all who know her. A dedicated teacher with a warm vibrant personality she has shared with her classes her enthusiasm for Shakespeare and the theatre and has tried to instill in her students a love of English by emphasizing the human aspects of literature. Many times members of her classes have been her guests at Broadway and ofF-Broadway plays. She has always taken a personal interest in her students, and has helped many of them reach their goals. A native of Newark, Miss Keehner attended Barringer High School and she is an alumna of the Newark Normal School and Washington Square College of New York University. She has traveled extensively in Europe, South America, Scandanavia, Canada, and the United States, and hopes someday to visit Egypt. Besides travel and the theatre, she is also interested in art, music, and world affairs. When she retires, we will be losing a precious member of our faculty. To us — she has given of herself fully in time, friendship, and devotion. To her — we can give only our appreciation and our love. 8FACULTY Ruth G.

The team entered the State Tournament and was successful in defeating Belvidere High 51-35, but then lost to Mountain High School (last year's state champions in Group II) at Seton Hall University 64-42. Captain Ken Miller was named to the Newark Star Ledger" All-City Team and emerged as the leading scorer for the team. Although the loss of seniors Tom Washington and Joe Towe from the starting five will be a blow to the team for next year. Coach Voller is optimistic. Ken Miller, Ron Strothers, Douglas Randolph will be returning and together with such capable reserves as Joe Evans, Ed Kennedy, and Tyrone Howell next year's team should be a good group. Coach Voller was particularly pleased with the hustle, determination, and team spirit that prevailed throughout the 1962-1963 season. He was quoted as saying, "This is the scrappiest group of boys I have coached since I have been at Arts High". We got the ball so-o-o let's go! Did it or didn't it, that is the question! !

The Faculty-Varsity Gome and Dance is held annually at Broadway Jr. High under the sponsorship of the Varsity Club. The event officially begins with the traditional "antics" of the faculty. This year Mr. Thomas's script for the evening's proceedings accounted for most of the laughs. As usual, the teachers sported their shorts, sweatshirts, sneakers and drooping socks. But once they got down to the business at hand, their skill on the floor was evident. They made their usual number of "Fouls" and some of us thought the referee could have been a bit more objective! In spite of the dauntless efforts of the Varsity team and both Cheering Squads, the faculty added another victory to their undefeated record. After three valiant attempts, Mr. Piegari stood on a chair and sank the winning basket. This wasn't exactly cricket, but the boys conceded the victory rather than have the faculty unfavorably inclined next marking period. All in all, this night will be remembered by all who attended. That man has added spring to his step. I wonder where the ball went?I think it's in orbit. If I tag you, you'll be it.

Reggie Jenkins, Vinnie Corcado, Terry Glynn and Vernon Edwards are all set for a freestyle relay. The Swimming Team, under the direction of Mr. Knobler, is composed of boys who spend many hours in training at Morris Avenue pool. This season, the team had a seven-six record. They placed fifth in the City Championship Meet and won the State Voc-Tech Conference Championship. The team loses only one graduating senior, Lance Casper; the remaining sophomores and juniors will be back next year. Mr. Knobler gives some last minute instructions. The butterfly stroke is demonstrated by Vernon Edwards. 93Our Track Team has become a recognized and respected port of the City League. The team has not only defeated six far larger city schools during the season, but has also been a power in the State Tech League where the boys finished second. The total dual meet record was seven and two. Among the Senior lettermen are Harvey Knox, a top scorer in the high jump, hurdles and broad jump, who will captain this year's team; Charles McMahan, a high jumper who has been a medal winner; Ray Bristol, Tom Lambright, Ben Johnson, who are middle distance men; Arlindo DeOlivero, who specialized in the mile run; Ken Mazey, who excels in pole vaulting. Our underclassmen include Robert Fuller, a fast man in the dashes; Spencer Robinson, a competent hurdler; John Iwanechko, an excellent pole vaulter; and Gary Seamen, the only Arts High track man ever to hold a Newark City record. He accomplished this last year when he pole vaulted 103H", to erase a record that was 16 years old. Among other faithful participants are Randolph Douglas, Tyrone Howell, Vincent Holmes, William Griffin, Leroy Nash, and Julius Taylor. With hard work, determination, and courage the boys look forward to this year's track season with a great deal of optimism. Now how do I get down?"

Teacher recommendations and average scholastic ability are mandatory for all applicants. Each spring, from the 50 or 60 girls who try-out approximately 10 are chosen to replace graduating seniors. Under the direction of Miss Abos, the squads' advisor, the girls start practicing in early fall. At these practices, every member does her part to make the team cheers as effective as possible. At the basketball games, the cheerleaders, following the example of their Co-captains Christine Cummings and Patricia Gaffga, boosted the morale of the players and spectators. However the cheerleaders' job does not end with the fourth quarter of a game, it goes on throughout the year as they Iry to instill a feeling of school pride among all the students.

The second is the Faculty-Varsity Game and Dance, one of the most popular events on the social calendar at Arts. Later in the year, a Varsity Dinner is held for all members. The coaches, the cheerleaders. Dr. Seamster, Mrs. Geller, and various other members of the faculty are usually invited to attend.
