tion. What happened to you after leaving Berkeley Hall?

"Lunch" This is one picture she can really sink her teeth
Imze-I went to the races yesterday, and you'll never guess whom
I saw there! Mike Day! He's one of Santa Anita's best
jockeys now. He was in the lead until the horse jumped
off his back.

umpire for snail races.

Rachmaninoff's "Prelude in C Sharp" while playing "Chop-
sticks" with his toes.
Carol-What's Kent been up to?
Anne-Oh, he's been up to Mars where he has a new television
show "Captain Kent and the Space Rangers."
fame-I saw Carolyn at the golf course.
Bill-Yes, she's a real pro now. There is even a book on her,
by her caddy, Dean Martin.
Larry-Jayne Pesante is also a writer. She was made poet
Lloydette of America.
Erin-Wfhy, here's one of her poems. It's called "Ode to
"I think that I shall never know.
A teacher quite like Mrs. O.
With glasses balanced on her nose,
She takes a fearsome teacher's pose.
One who looks at us all day
And keeps us on the narrow way.
One who might in springtime wear
A gaze to make the devil beware.
One who quite dexterously may
The gavel upon my head soon lay
Though God created every creature
The greatest yet is our own teacher.

Les Fetes Francaises
BY ANNE MOORE
The twelve students taking French this year from Madame
Niles have not only learned the fundamentals of the language
and how to speak it, but also much about France itself, its
people, and their customs.
The highlight of the course was the traditional tea given by
Miss Niles and the French Class on Tuesday, May fifteenth.
The program consisted of an article from the French "Herald"
read by Carol DeWindt and Bill Cox, several piano numbers
played by Don Krieger, a skit by Gail Osherenko and Anne
Moore, and several songs played on the guitars by Chris Brix
and Kent Attridge. After eating the delicious French pastries
provided by Miss Niles, we finished the party by singing the
French National Anthem "La Marseillaisef'

In the presence of six witnesses, Ellen O'Connor ran a red
light on Kenter and Sunset on Saturday, March 31, 1962.
Miss Letts is teaching the Ninth Grade the hairy-carry.
It's a proven fact that the Eighth Grade and their teacher
like to play hooky.
Don Krieger inspired the original song of "Tan Shoes and
Pink Shoe Laces."

Tedious Testing Time
BY CHRISTINE DOWNEY AND LARRY SANSONE
Horrors! F-day Cfor finals and fiunkingj has dawned-dark
and dreary. Nineteen cheerfulC?D faces appeared at school on
Wednesday, January 51. Having stayed up until the wee hours
of the morning, we were allowed to come to school at a luxur-
ious 9:40 A.M. in our best set of threads.
We wore a deep path around the oval beating facts into our
heads. Literature was our first great conquest. The next obstacle
was our brain-storming English final. We had the great priv-
ilege of going to lunch twenty-five minutes early. joy! No left-
overs! Our next hair-tearing torture was algebra. We were freed
at three o'clock to refresh our bewildered brains in the pool.
On Thursday we wore down the oval another six inches for
drafting or sewing and French. Some of the comments in sew-
ing were: 'il need some fingernail polish, my stockings are
The sympathetic reply was, "Spit on it."
Last but not least came history on Friday. We covered 3,300
years of Ancient History in two hours.
Anticipating our afternoon at the Anne Archer's home, we
rapidly vacated Shield Hall. We were graciously received by
Anne's mother. Off we went to the Ice Palace for two hours
of spinning, spilling, sprawling merriment. We then returned
to Anne's house where we revived our red noses with punch,
cookies, and the "Twist". That is, we all did except Barry, who
went swimming in fifty-five degree water.
At 5:30 p.m. we left for a l-o-o-ong night's sleep.
BY CAROL DE WINDT
The challenge of algebra spurred our class to new heights in
learning and reasoning. We have conquered Cwell almostj x, y,
and z as we triumphed over 1, 2, and 3. Solving square roots
and handling an unknown were a horizon-stretching experience.
In history we have studied the wide panorama of the develop-
ment of civilization, starting with the lowly cave man and trac-
ing his development to modern man. From this broad background
of the past we received many of the contributions from ancient
peoples: irrigation from Egypt, the idea of one God from the
Iews, democracy from the Greeks, and law from the Romans.
Our studies in English have given us confidence in expressing
ourselves, better grammar, and correct spelling. The combina-
tion of these many facets of learning illustrates the well-rounded
education Berkeley Hall provides for its students.
BY CAROL DEWINDT
Quite a mixture was brewing at Berkeley Hall on November
3rd for the Halloween Dance. Caspars peeped in from every
nook and cornerg and ghostly witches, here by invitation of the
Eighth Grade girls, wove spells about us.
We devoured a brew of apple cider and pretzels. Mr. Nelson,
master of ceremonies for this spooky fete, organized the Corner
Dance, Circle Dance, Charleston, Number Dance, and Lemon
Dance. What a perfect start to our series of fortnightlies!
Seams to me more than sewing is going on in Mrs. Richards'
class. Much progress has been made this year. Mrs. Richards
says, "This class is the best class l've ever had-treat-wise, that
is." We have, however, learned much of the fine art of sewing,
for example, Gail no longer pastes her dresses together, and
Anne Archer now calls the "perculated scissors," the pinking
shears. Jayne Pesante has enjoyed learning to iron to the extent
of ironing her purple paper napkin used on each treat day. We
even have a mascot in Sewing-"Jack the Ripper." To sum it
up, "A stitch in time saves the Nine."
BY KENT ATTRIDGE
Friday, December 15, just before our Christmas vacation, the
Ninth Grade surprised Mrs. O'Connor with a party strategically
placed to avoid history. Passed around were the treats, which
consisted of four cakes, five kinds of cookies, pop, two kinds
of candy, two kinds of fudge, and some bon-bons and mints
from Mme. Niles, our French teacher. With money we robbed
from the treasury, plus additional sacrifices, the class presented
Mrs. O'Connor with a beautiful blue mohair sweater. We lis-
tened to a record brought by Bill Cox, entitled "GREEN"
CHRISSTMASB. The class spent the latter part of the party un-
decorating the Christmas tree Cwhich was a work of art, as all
Ninth Grade work ish and cleaning up. At twelve noon the
party ended, and we went home to an enjoyable three weeks of
Blazing Boxes for a Swinging Social
BY JAYNE PESANTE AND BARRY GREENSLATE
Emmy Lou and Alvin, eating enormous hot dogs, were the
theme for the Box Social this year.
Needless to say, the tremendous effort put- forth by the
junior High girls paid off-with spectacular results! The vast
array of boxes included a surfboard, a U. S. "Male" box, a root
beer float, a telephone, a car, a rocketship, and good old Charlie
Many broke the custom of having fried chicken and potato
salad and experimented with shrimp, pizza, barbecued beef sand-
wiches, submarine sandwiches, and chocolate eclairs.
In all, the Box Social was a very delectable dance.
BY GAIL Osi-IERENKO AND JAYNE PESANTE
'Twas the tenth night 'fore Christmas in Berkeley Hall's hall,
Gay voices were stirring awaiting the ball.
The Christmas tree's ornaments were chosen with care,
And whiffs of gardenias drifted on air.
Twirling and whirling to a lilting tune,
We all were disappointed when it ended too soon.
A yummy selection of cookies and punch-
Supplied plenty of goodies upon which to munch.
The Eight Grade's quoted passages lent inspiring light,
As we said "Merry Christmas" and to all a "Good Night."
By JANE GRIMBLEBY
The Ninth Grade Sewing Class can also cook! On Valentine's
Day Mrs. O'Connor and the boys found this to be true when
the girls surprised them with an array of delectable delicacies:
two chocolate cakes, a white cake, two batches of brownies,
cookies, punch-all very scrumptious-and ice cream provided
by Mrs. O'Connor. Another accomplishment not to be over-
looked was missing half of our history period and thirty min-
utes of French. This gay feast made a wonderful Valentine card.
BY CAROL DEWINDT
The lights were burning late in the auditorium for the
Thanksgiving Dance on November 17. Mr. Nelson kept us
hopping by introducing a Freeze Dance and a game, "Pass the
Pie Plate." The number dance cards, artistically done by the
Eighth Grade, were exceptionally appealing, for they looked
like pumpkin pies. Refreshments were concocted for the hun-
All went home squawking happily.
