Showdown at 10:30 BY BILL COX "Drawl" Proclaims Mr. Richards, and 45'S, 30's, and shields are immediately pulled out. Thus starts one of the most ad- venturous classes of the Ninth Grade boys-drafting period. lt is begun with a twenty-minute lecture on chemistry, electricity, or astronomy by our teacher, commonly labeled "live minutes of sciencef' This has proven to be an excellent review of the facts learned last year in Mr. Richards' science class. Now the boys commence with their drafing period. Previous Ninth Grade classes had employed this time by telling jokes and singing songs. But the indivdual character of the class of '62 has shone a new light on drafting. We have introduced such unprecedented acts as imitations of birdcalls, complete rundowns of last night's baseball games, segments from recent horror movies, and sound tracks of the "Soupy Sales Show." Under Mr. Richards' patient guidance we have learned the principles of the different facets of Mechanical Drawing-three- plane, isometric, and architectural design. The final minutes tick by and our drafting period is ended. We reluctantly and carefully put away our tools and dash to Shield Hall only to be met by a surprise test levied by our ever-faithful warden. Thus our showdown ends at 11:25. Who won? In my opinion it ended a DRAW. Census Makes Sense BY DoN KRIEGER AND GAIL OSHERENKO The Ninth Grade presented a panel discussion of the census for their first assembly. The panel consisted of Barry Green- slate, Carolyn Sage, Don Krieger, Anne Moore, Gail Osherenko, and Erin Jurow. They discussed how the census is taken, what questions the people are asked, for what the census information is used, and census' in other countries. Humorous incident of census takers added spice to the program. Anne Archer, Melody Paxton, and Gina Killough made a large map showing the number of representatives that each state lost or gained in Congress due to the changes in population. It was a CENSIBLE way to start our assemblies. Paul the Dauntless BY ANNE ARCHER The dynamic and dauntless Paul, who is responsible for much of the New Testament, was the subject of one Ninth Grade assembly. Each person who had taken Paul as the subject of his term paper chose the most valuable and stimulating facts in it as his contribution to this interesting assembly. As We com- piled the fascinating information, we found that Paul was truly to be remembered for his great life, journeys, and ideals of love and understanding. All who heard our assembly agreed that Paul was a dauntless character, and that the assembly was an inspira- tion which drew them closer to this great man. The Memphis Mystery BY CRAIG MINEAR Last year the Ninth Grade gave up some precious property in back of its sacred classroom to Memphis. The ground was carefully tended and cultivated by him. All of us were baffled by these strange plants. No one knew what this mystery crop was, To our surprise, last October in the middle of our literature time, in walked Mrs. Thomas of the cafeteria with two trays of the most delectable and delicious sweet potato pie you could ever imagine. What a special treat for us all! How we enjoyed our mystery crop. Memphis, come again. William Cox ond Anne Moore reod the Thanksgiving Service. Thanksgiving Service BY DoN KRIEGER AND CAROLYN SAGE The Berkeley Hall Thanksgiving Service in the Year of our Lord, 1962, was presented graciously and sincerely by the Ninth Grade. The Ninth Grade boys acting as ushers were dignified and ellicient as was Anne Archer, our gracious hostess. The Lesson Sermon on Thanksgiving was read with clarity and understanding by Anne Moore and William Cox. All agreed that the reading was the best Berkeley Hall has ever had. The testimonies and remarks of the Sixth through the Ninth Grade pupils added to the success of the occasion. Mrs. Pamela Brookins sang a beautiful solo accompanied by Mrs. Mavis Purtle on the piano. This Thanksgiving Service was indeed a memorable one. We extend gratitude to Mrs, O'Connor for her helpful supervision and guidance. The following were found in the warped pages of old Cballengem' April 1952-Shari Bleichman: "My Blanket's too big!" Craig Minear: "Don't worry, you'll get big someday tool" May 1952-"Sleeping Beauty Receives Red Apple" Anne Archer was voted "Best Sleeper" in the Senior Nursery. In appreciation of this good record, jeff jrvis brought Anne a big red apple. New Hymn version by Nurser-ite Billy Cox, "Day by Day the man fell.', Ninth Grade Fashion Show Above: finale.

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 running." 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. Exploration 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. Halloween Hullabaloo 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! Be Sewciable 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." 18 Santa's Smorgasborcl 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 vacation. 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 Brown. 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. Cool Yule 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." Cupid's Caper 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. Turkey Trot 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- gry hordes. All went home squawking happily.

These describe the Ninth Grade Fashion Show of 1962. Our Berkeley Hall beauties mod- eled a collection of brightly colored, stylish garments ranging from lovely summer dresses to dusters and beach wear. Mrs. Richards supervised the show. The story was narrated by Mrs. Dlouhy, the description of costumes was given by Mrs. Mont- gomery ,and musical accompaniment by Mrs. Purtle. The show consisted of four scenes, all in France. Our setting was at Dior's in Paris. The Ninth Grade girls presented clothes 20 they had made at school before a group of famous California designers. Dior himself CCh1-istopher Brixb with Monsieur Dior DeWindt on a leash and his assistant Uon Jarvisb introduced these designers, portrayed by nine of the Eighth Grade girls. The second scene resembled a slumber party where brightly colored dusters for around-the-house Wear were shown. The next setting showed live of our girls lounging on the Riviera displaying a variety of shorts and capris. In the last scene the girls proved their abilities in making garments at home. Each girl was to have been from some city in France. The show closed with the traditional grand finale. After pre- senting her favorite dress on stage, each girl walked down the steps and presented her mother with a corsage and a kiss.
