The First Home of Berkeley Hall
Dedicated to Two Little Sisters
The Valentines' Secret
BY PAUL APPLEBY
Tall friends delight them with ribboned verse deceiving-
To the little ones a day of luscious Waiting,
Till the mystery box yields secrets, storms abaring,
Not knowing younger minds are rich in sweet believing,
So openly expectant, so confident in gift receiving,
So eager to show Love in the Master's weaving.
No simple card, no empty verse rejecting,-
A11 love out-poured in graciously accepting. The Second Home of Berkeley Hall

THE SUPERIOR SEVENTH
BY BOB MOORE
Since the "stingy Ninth" has given the "Superior Seventh" so
little room to write its novelties, this prologue must be short.
First, I would like to explain that our highly literary class
of journalists has prepared several essays for your enjoyment.
Next, I would like to bring to the surface that the following
articles are of superior quality and are the best of reading matter
in this Annual. To prove this last statement, twenty-seven out
of twenty-nine pupils in our class received "junior High Pen-
manship Awardsf' Also, supervised by our "dynamic and under-
standing" teacher, our class set an all-time high by getting
twenty-one Blue Cards. Although these are just statistics to
the average Berkeley Haller, they show how much progress the
"Modest and Superior Seventh" has made.
Another "first" our class made was improving greatly in the
aerodynamics field under the capable teaching of the Ninth
Grade's skilled technician, Mrs. O'ConnOr. She taught us how
to make bigger and better paper gliders and showed us how to
I will now turn you over to our superior literary scholars.
The Assembly On Libraries
BY GUY VELOZ
The Seventh Grade this year gave an assembly on libraries.
Debbie Boughn introduced Catherine Woods and Arthur Matti-
son, who told us some of the purposes of reading books. Then
Laurie Thomas, Carolyn Carnesciali, julie Stevens, and Guy
Veloz talked about the ancient libraries, growth of libraries in
the United States, and famous libraries of the world, including
the Library of Congress. The class thinks this was one of the
most educational Seventh Grade assemblies this year.
BY CATHERINE WOODS
This year has been full of fun and excitement in art. Our
first project was to draw twelve designs showing the colors and
their complements. Next we drew twelve additional designs
to show tints, tones, shades, and hues. Our third project was to
make a color wheel consisting of eight to twelve colors. The next
project was a paper mosaic, which was lots of fun.
We then had to get a pair of scissors and cut! cut! curl-
until we had at least ten shapes or designs which were combined
into a picture without using a pencil.
Our last major project was making decorations for the Sixth
Grade dance. Our theme was "Peanuts" from the comic strip. We
have all thoroughly enjoyed this year in art under Mrs. Richards'
BY CHRISTINE SANSONE
It comforts me to hear rain pour,
To hear it knocking at my door-
To listen to the thundercrash-
To see the golden lightening flash!
' It makes the earth so fresh and new,
It makes me very happy too,
Especially when a rainbow spreads
The lovely colors overhead.
Seventh Grade Hall of Fame
The Seventh Grade Class Presidents this year have been Bob
Moore, Mark Bickerton, Laurie Thomas, Kent Billsborrow, and
Our Patriotic Assembly
By CHRISTINE SANSONE and LAURIE THOMAS
On Monday, October 16, the Seventh Grade celebrated the
75th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty. Kirk Honeycutt and
Richard Larson were narrators for the poem "America for Me",
which was directed by Mrs. Dlouhy. The chorus was spoken
by Dorothy Roelse, Rommany Bennett, Bob Moore, John Steele-
smith, David Greenwalt, Kent Bilsborrow, Mark Bickerton,
Larry Charlston, and Bradley Scott. Diana Daniels and Gail
Hanson gave the history and description of the Statue of Liberty.
The narrators then recited part of Emma Lazarus' poem,
"The New Colossus," followed by Paul Appleby's story of the
Colossus of Rhodes.
It was an honor to the class to have Mr. Nelson choose our
assembly for the Mothers' Club.
Letters in Literature
BY DIANA DANIELS
In Literature, Mrs. Dlouhy read us an article entitled "The
Little Red Raincoat" that appeared in the Christian Science
Monitor. The class enjoyed the article so much that we wrote
a letter of apppreciation to the author, Mrs. Zimmer. Each one
in the class wrote a letter, and the best ones were sent to Mrs.
To our surprise, a few days later we found that Mrs. Zimmer
had written a personal letter to each of us who had sent her one.
Included in each letter was a dilferent article written by Mrs.
Zimmer in the past. We were pleased with her response to our
writing project and are looking forward to further work in
The Book Fair
By DOROTHY ROELSE AND RICHARD LARSON
During March the Seventh Grade had the great privilege of
starting a Book Fair at Berkeley Hall. Out class hopes that this
tradition will be carried on by each successive Seventh Grade.
We started our Book Fair by portraying characters from
well-known stories. Laurie Thomas and Dorothy Roelse intro-
duced such famous "people" as Tom Sawyer, Priscilla and john
Alden, the Emperor of China and Marco Polo.
The highlight of the Book Fair was our guest speaker, Mrs.
Blanche Campbell from Campbells Book Store in Westwood.
She brought many books which she reviewed. The books in-
culded several award-winning novels for children.
Our parents and the students of the Sixth through Ninth
Grades attended this fair. All showed great interest, and many
have purchased books that were reviewed.
BY SUSAN DEWINDT
This year in games, Mrs. Jeffries decided to liven up baseball
by having "B-Day." Each girl voted for three team mates in her
room to represent either the Blues or the Whites. The nine
girls would make up the two teams. B-Day had to be post-
poned for two weeks, but finally it arrived. Seven pitchers and
four innings later, the marvelous, stupendous, colossal Blues

EIGHT'S TRIUMPH TRUTHS
Our Class Motto:
"Mind Sends Forth Perfection"
By BETH HILL
Our class motto was lettered by Beth Hill and Bonnie Nance.
This verse, from Mary Baker Eddy's writings, was proposed by
Agnes Montgomery. It has proven helpful in our school work
as we have realized the truth in this verse.
Since September the Eighth Grade has had six elections. Our
presidents have been: Don McCarty, Ronald Krisel, Lyn Ken-
drick, Melissa Bosler, Beth Hill, and Christine Morse.
Our secretaries have been: Beth Hill, Melissa Bosler, Peg
Savage, Ken Crow, Melinda McMahan, and Bonnie Nance.
This year fourteen Eighth Graders have been able to keep
Blue Cards the whole time. They are: Susan Attridge, Melissa
Bosler, George Burnette, Ken Crow, Beth Hill, Lyn Kendrick,
Nancy Kohler, Ronald Krisel, Carol Mau, Don McCarty, Chris-
tine Morse, Jan Meyhaus, Bonnie Nance, and Peg Savage.
A Challenge and It's Reward
BY KENNETH CROW
In this modern age we hear of computers and how they are
used to solve almost any problem.
On january 19, 1962, we received a letter stating that we
were invited to see a computer at U.C.L.A. with which Mr.
Anderson is working for a degree. On January 26, Mr. Nelson
sent a letter challenging us. If we received 25 blue cards out
of a total of 30, we would get to see the computer. During this
period we worked our hardest and finally on April 4, we re-
ceived a letter from Mr. Nelson saying "The Eighth Grade has
earned the right to see the computer." Arrangements were made,
and on April 13 we left for U.C.L.A.
We entered a gallery there, and beyond the window stood
several computers and all the units involved. We were then
shown a movie, "The Thinking Machine," which explained
basically why computers are built and how they work.
. We then went on a tour which took us through the room
where the computer was.
' Generous Donors
BY CAROL MAU
The tradition of the Eighth Grade has been to contribute
generous funds to useful organizations. In December, 1961, the
class decided not to give gifts but to donate to CARE. Melissa
Bosler brought up the subject of the Christian Science Exhibit
at the World's Fair. A box was decorated and presented to our
class by Doree Citron for the purpose of donations. Each stu-
dent gave any amount he desired to give. By the end of the
week, we had collected 354015. Ten dollars went to the Chris-
tian Science Exhibit and 5530.15 to CARE. On January 8 we
received letters from Korea, Turkey, and Ecuador thanking us
for our generosity.
BY DOREE CITRON
I love the rain, a-coming down,
It never, never makes me frown.
It is magic, plain to see
As it lights each shimmering tree.
Yes, I love rain coming down
Scrubbing clean all parts of town,
God's way of saying, "Keep hearts clean,
Keep thoughts bright, never mean."
God's way is ever wise and true.
I pray to reflect it in all I do.
BY STEVE BRADLEY
This past fall the Eighth Grade was given gifts of two color-
ful pictures donated by the Arthurs.
One of these pictures called "Trail Boss," especially brings
out the beauty of the West by showing a leader behind his
wagon train moving westward.
The other picture, "Fur Trading," also gives an impression
of what the early days of the Wild West were like.
A Gallery of Triumphs
BY SUSAN ATTRIDGE
Following the tradition of the Berkeley Hall art class, the
Eighth Grade girls have put up the colorful decorations at the
various dances. This was with the patient guidance of Mrs,
For the Spring Formal, the beauty of Japan was brought out
in brilliant colors.
Thanks to Mrs. Richards this has been a year of triumphs for
the Eighth Grade girls.
Disneyland? No, McMahan's!
BY JON JARVIS
"Who would want to go to Disneyland when you could go
to the McMahans?" This remark was made by an Eighth Grade
girl a number of years ago. We were delighted to receive another
invitation from Mrs. McMahan asking us to her house for our
Picnic Day this year. Everyone enjoyed the swimming, tennis
and paddle tennis. We had delicious food for lunch. Afterwards
the boys played baseball and the girls bounced on the trampoline.
We topped off the day by starting the 1913 Rambler Ccalled
Sullivanj . It was a fun way to have our Picnic Day.
BY BONNIE NANCE
Preparing ourselves to become good future citizens com-
menced in the Eighth Grade during the second semester with
the studying of the Constitution.
This was the year's supreme project. We were eager to learn
how our Constitution was made and how Congress and the
Legislative, Executive, and judicial Departments operate under
this great document. With Mrs. Hall's guidance we learned how
a bill is passed through Congress, how an alien is naturalized,
and how and where to use and display the flag.
Many long hours were spent searching for pictures and
putting them together into one informative notebook.
We will never cease to be grateful for the good it has done
us in helping us to know how our government operates and
what our part in it is.
Milestones in Science
BY GEORGE BURNETTE
During this Age of Space, the Eighth Grade boys have en-
gaged in a wide variety of very interesting subjects in our
science class. We learned about weather and the different parts
of our atmosphere. We also learned about the fascinating world
of astronomy, which Mr. Richards explained very precisely.
Mr. Richards has explained very well the atomic structure of
an atom and how a chain reaction starts.
This year Mr. Richards has helped us to make our education
more complete as we have proved the principles of science.
