HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1962 My experience at Berkeley Hall has been like an ocean voyage around the world. Our ship, the U.S.S. Three-Year-Old Nursery, captained by Mrs. Owens, started with only four passengers: Anne Archer, Anne Moore, Gail Osherenko, and Craig Minear. On deck, they enjoyed such occupations as painting and building with blocks. Their voyage wasn't too long before the ship came to dock. They disembarked and boarded their next ship, the U.S.S. Four-Year-Old Nursery. Our four travelers were joined by Larry Sansone and Bill Cox. The ship was now captained by Miss Giles and Mrs. Winkler. Here we enjoyed such exciting deck sports as tricycle riding, painting, and now cutting out paper figures. The voyage was over all too soon and we found ourselves again coming to dock. We now boarded the brand-new U.S.S. Kindergarten. Here our journeys were joined by jane Grimbleby and Mike Day. On this new ship we enjoyed such new sports as: building with giant new building blocks, playing on a tot-sized stagecoach, driving a big, red fire engine, riding tricycles, and painting pictures. Also we learned how to spell Our next voyage was to be a long one. We sailed through the Campus Canal, and docked on the strange, new Primary Sea. We boarded the U.S.S. First Grade captained by Mrs. Lyons and Miss Horner. We were joined by Chris Brix. On this ship we discovered two new pastimes, reading about Dick and jane and learning to count to one hundred. Soon we were on our way again in the U.S.S. Second Grade which had a beautiful new pool. On the ship we found we had duties as well as pleasures to occupy our time. We studied ad- dition, subtraction, multiplication, and handwriting. Our captain, Mrs. Iwert, also taught us about shells, fossils, and dinosaurs. After studying dinosaurs, we astounded, Sir Nelson, the admiral of the fleet, with such names as Diplodocus, Brontosauras, and Pleaseosaur. Before we knew it, we found ourselves again disembarked. When we saw our next ship, the U.S.S. Third Grade, we were almost terrified by the immensity of it, for it was truly the largest ship we'd ever seen. .This year, we were introduced to a new concept, hard work. Under the strict but kind supervision of Mrs. Davis, we discovered the mysteries of advanced multi- plication, division, and harder reading. We're now on our last leg of the voyage through the Primary Sea and are nearing the Intermediate Ocean. This was another adventure, opening up new vistas of Hallow- een parties and Annual Play Days. Our skipper on the good ship Fourth Grade was Mrs. Thomas who started things with a bang until the theater gave a strong call, and Mrs. Hill took over the helm. Erin Jurow, Jayne Pesante, and Christine Downey joined this adventure. Our first Halloween party aboard ship was quite an event. I think there were five Elvis Presleys that year. The winner, Elvis with a classmate dressed as a hound-dog tagging behind. And-oh yes! there was something new along the study line-HOMEWORK-we weren't aware when Mrs. Thomas introduced us to it, of what a constant companion it would be through the coming years. Mrs. Hill also had an intro- duction to make-our first real penmanship. Somehow the transfer to the S.S. Fifth Grade went smoothly. Miss Mallon was our new Captain. We spent much time along the way studying the American Indian. The Halloween party was still an event with lots of wear and tear on the parents. Through a great effort of my land pilot, I was made convincing as an African native and captured our class prize. We also practiced folk dancing to present for our Annual Play Day. We were now ready to start the final stage of our voyage on the Intermediate Ocean. Mrs. Henry, Skipper of the Sixth Grade, piloted us through ancient history and decimals. We visited many foreign lands through our team notebooks on various foreign countries. Gina Killough and Don Krieger joined us in our first adventure in dancing. Mrs. Baker was our expert instructor. Capable as she was, we felt like we had two left feet when we were honored by the junior High group at the Sixth Grade Invitational. As we were looking forward to exploring the mysteries of the Junior High Seas, Kent Attridge left our ship to embark for New York. After docking and picking up three new passengers, Melody Paxton, Carolyn Sage and Barry Greenslate, we prepared to board the U.S.S. Seventh. We were welcomed aboard by Miss Keppel who had us keep notebooks of our literature and English and helped us at the start to perfect and beautify our penmanship. We were greatly saddened when our skipper left our helm to sail other seas, but were fortunate when Mrs. Stimson came along to gently but firmly guide us the rest of the way. Our social life took on new importance with the fortnightlies. White coats and fluffy party dresses gave us a very grown up feeling at the Christmas Formal. As we came in view of the dock, we knew that the S.S. Eighth Grade would take us to the hardest work we'd on our voyage so far. Our Captain, Mrs. Hall, welcomed us and a new passenger, Carol De Windt. On this cruise we studied American history, computed square roots, and made notebooks on the ever popular Constitution. We felt more at home at the fortnightlies and Christmastime had the special privilege of caroling to the residents on shore as we sailed by. A little past mid-voyage one of our shipmates, Craig Minear, fell overboard. As we approached the dock ready to transfer to the S.S. Ninth Grade, we found Craig, who had been rescued, waiting to join us. We started on the final phase of our voyage with a somewhat solemn feeling. But, soon, under the capable but jolly guidance of our new skipper, Mrs. O'Connor, we discovered that we could have fun while learning. We were hosts and hostesses of the fortnightlies, made the class Shield, and compiled the class an- nual. Of course, we spent all the year playing with that delightful subject Algebra! It is with great reluctance that we anticipate our final docking and the end of our long-to-be-remembered voyage through Berkeley Hall. Boys' Athletics BY CHRISTOPER BRIX When the junior High boys returned from summer vaca- tion, they were met by the new coach, Howard Mitchell from Principia. We started the year with Hag football, and "ugh," calisthenics. Four teams were chosen, and at the season's end the Whites, headed by Christopher Brix was the winning team. The scene then changed to soccer. The teams headed by William Cox and Kent Bilsborrow tied. When basketball season rolled around Kent Attridge led the Blues to a sweeping victory. The time finally came for America's national sport, baseball. The Blues captained by William Cox were victorious. Blues Versus Whites By GINA KILLOUGH This year's rivalry between the Blues and the Whites has been one of the closest. The wonderful, colossal Whites have won volleyball twice while the inferior Blues have won both basket- ball and speedball. The marvelous W'hite captain, Anne Archer, and the Blue captain, Carol DeWindt, have both spurred their teammates on to victory. Mrs. Jeffries has patiently taught the girls good sportmanship and teamwork, while the Ninth Graders have attempted to learn lifesaving under Miss Letts' expert guidance. 7

THE SUPERIOR SEVENTH "Prologue" 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 fly them! 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. Potential Picassos 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' expert guidance. The Rain 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. 8 Seventh Grade Hall of Fame The Seventh Grade Class Presidents this year have been Bob Moore, Mark Bickerton, Laurie Thomas, Kent Billsborrow, and Dale Crow. 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. Zimmer. 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 literature. 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. B-Day 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 emerged--victorious! Champions!
