MRS. DOROTHY RICHARDS
Although Mrs. Richards is a smart
dresser, a good cook, a skillful artist,
a strict sewing teacher, a fashion show
expert, a ceramic adviser, a disciplinary
alphabet maker, a hue, tint, tone and
shade perfectionist, a decoration instruc-
tor, a flower arranger, and obviously the
pride and ioy of the whole school, we
like her in spite of it!

Gaiete a P1l'1S
BY ERIN JUROW AND KENT ATTRIDGE
Glamor! Sophisticationl Gaiety! 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
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.

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
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
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.
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
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
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.
