Therefore it is imperative that each of us exercise our ability to act with WISDOM- that correct application of knowledge which will uplift the struggling hearts ot men to the realization of their rightful heritage of dominion over materiality. Wee fvlifics Patty Reeder In 1966, for the first Time in twenty years, elections were held for positions of Student Body leadership. The offices open were President, Vice President, and Secretary-Treasurer. All candidates had to meet rigid standards of grades and citizenship. Each person who ran chose a cam- paign manager, who was to help him with posters and speeches. The Secretary-Treasurer was to be from any Junior High grade. Those running were Laurie Crow, Bill Fabian, Louis Fabian, David Johnson, Steve Gardner, Wendy Tryon, and Shelley Van de Wege. The candidates for Vice-President, from Eighth and Ninth grades, were Marnette Cooling, Randy Craft, and Dave Hocker. The Ninth Graders running for President were Patty Reeder, Mike Dow, and Dave Marshall, On election day humorous and artistic posters went up, and persuasive speeches were made by candidates and their managers. Voting was held at noon, and the returns found Patty Reeder President, Dave Hocker Vice-President, and Shelly Van de Wege Secretary-Treasurer. The Presidents duty is to preside over meet- ings of the Student Council. The Vice-President fills in if the President is absent, The Secretary- Treasurer keeps track of finances and records the minutes of each meeting of the Student Council. The election procedure was well planned and very successful. lt brought students together and increased school spirit. l -4 fudeuf gffllldfff Q2 111' 'f 5? li' 1. ...QW A we "1-if Tiki! ' -f 9.

Their playTime consisfs of making buTTerTly wings, Indian I-leaddresses, and many oTher Things. The children spend a Tull day in school learning, working and playing. For lunch They especially enioy "hangabers" lhamburgersl, hoT dogs, cowboy hash, corn and rice.

THE V.l.K.'s Patty Reeder and Penny Hill Who are the V.l,K.'s? Why, they are the twenty-three fu- ture circus trainers, racemen, mommies, rocket ship men, fire- men, members of the navy, lawyers, Sunday School teachers, and airplane men-otherwise known as the "Very Important Kindergartenersf' Mrs. Reynolds, their teacher, with Mrs. Barbara Timm as an assistant from the Nursery, feels that the whole class has the characteristic of being very vigorous. This is a great under- statement. Their main reasons for liking Berkeley Hall are the merry-go-round and the bicycles. Next in line come the toy helicopters, the sandpile, painting, the doll house, books, making stuff, and "cutting out things." Scholastically they are really doing well, feeling that it is interesting to learn. They are using the Carden system in learning howto write, doing number work, and reading readi- ness. They will be reading, too, before the end of the year, Some of the V.l.K.'s can even tell time. One of the most important things in the Kindergarten is the Golden Rule Chart. When a child is loving and good he earns a gold star, if he forgets, he gets a red star which reminds him to stop and think of the Golden Rule. .This chart is apparently effective, for one little V.l.K. was heard saying, "You should not be mean or hit anybody or else you will get a red star." V.l.K.'s are generally consenting to conditions at Berkeley Hall, and they love the food, especially peanut butter and ielly sandwiches and hot dogs. But they do have suggestions for improvement as to the colors of the school buildings. The most popular ideas are white, pink, multi-colored, orange, yellow and green. The V.I.K.'s are definitely distinctive people, alon't you agree? ?? .-g 'iii A xg ,Q- Mrs. Barbara Timm Mrs. Ruth Reynolds Mrs. Bettina Swan ,Ms HARD WORK, LEARNING, FUN Dave Marshall and Gale Ricketts Under the direction of Mrs. Swan the First Graders have much to accomplish in a school day. They have many subiects, including read- ing, arithmetic, language, spelling, and writ- ing, both cursive writing and printing. Mrs. Swan is stressing reading this year more than other subiects. She hopes to in- still a love for reading in all of the students by having them read three Carden books and two or three classics. Reading at home is also encouraged. ln a recent survey of students, four out of five stated that they preferred cursive writing to any other subject. Next was recess, where they said they enioyed playing in the sandbox, roller skating, and playing the Girl From U.N.C.L.E. Another favorite was dodgeball. The First Grade student government con- sists of class officers who are elected every week. A large bear rug was brought to class this year. After discussing it they all drew pictures of what was supposed to be the bear rug. Some show great talent, and they are all interesting. The class saw more bears when they went to the Los Angeles Zoo. All in all these eighteen First Graders clay is filled with hard work, learning, and fun. if nu.. , 355 'P' H. W V 1 , .. K.. , .K .

Every high ranking school has been visit- ed, but none has been found that ranks higher than Berkeley Hall. Some students were asked what they wanted to bc when they grew up. Some of the answers were- a spy, a lumber-iack, a billionaire, and "an artist who paints drag races." One little girl Said she aspired to be a ballerina but changed that statement to "I want to be a rock 'n roll star." Some second graders said the prettiest ladies in the world were Lady Godiva, and Mrs. Santa Claus. To inquiries concerning her class, Mrs. Linke said that they are creative and courteous and they have great self-control. This year they have learned the Golden Rule, and how to use proper manners. They enioy music, games, and arithme- tic where they learn multiplication and division as well as new math. In reading, they have a Lollipop Tree from which they get a lollipop each time they give a book report. The Second Grade is a class with a classic teacher, who is full of new and interesting ideas. READING TIME by Bob Brown Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade, and Third Grade have a brand new library. It is located in the Second Grade room. The new primary library must be under the constant care and supervision of a superb librarian. This of course is the well known second grade teacher, Mrs. Linke, who has had a lot of children'S library work. Even though the collection of books right now seems Small, it is growing every day from contributions by parents and friends of Berkeley Hall. At the present time the primary children have regular scheduled library periods at which time they are able to exchange books. All of the primary children like the new library, and intend to use it every free minute they can. i Uze Social Uzird Berkeley Hall's Third Grade, from The Teacher's poinT of view, is a very inTeresTing and acfive class. OuT of The sixTeen children, There are only four girls. Mrs. Richards feels ThaT The class is learning self-discipline, good work habiTs, accepTing respon- sibiliTies, and learning To "sur- vive" Through longer classes. Third Graders enioy Their games period where compeTiTion and enThusiasm are seen. AT The lunch Table, we asked The Third Grade boys if They liked The girls in Their class. An emphafic "Nooo" was heard- a Typical reply for boys of ThaT age. One liTTle boy had a differ- enT reply-"l love everybody," he said. People They like are Julie An- drews, because she's preTTy, George Washingfon because he's famous, and Mrs. Richards be- cause she's nice. When we asked, "WhaT is happiness?" we goT These an- swers: "I Think happiness is changing grades." "Happiness is when l'm aT school wiTh rny friends." "The happiesT Thing aT Berkeley Hall is Berkeley Hall." One of The sweeTesT commenTs of all was one liTTle girl's opin- ion of why if is good To be friendly. She Told us, "l Think iT's good To be friendly because when you have no friends, whaT's lefT?" by Mike Daw Ami Melinda Cflark iv. Tisflliiijl Mrs. Jean Richards TZ. Hitman LEARNING WITH LEISURE by Cindy Wissler and Roger Remick Mrs. Linsdell is learning with leisure as she teaches the Fourth Grade. Her students like it that way This year the students are learning both long and short division. Movies ot California have made history of the state come alive. During the leisure halt ot reading, contests are held. ln one of these contests the winner read over l,5OO pages. Science is not a main subiect, but it is encouraged. Here again movies create interest and paint vivid pictures, thus combining learning and leisure. Often a boy or girl brings his proiect which stimulates interest. The boys put on a play about model ships and boats. This study was started when a few boys brought some ships to share at school. Soon there was an impressive display ot ships and boats. Each boy told all about his model. The girls, not to be outdone, put on a play about the customs ot the same time ot the ships. That is not all. The Fourth Grade turned in three maior re- ports this year. Upon being asked to comment on Berkeley Hall one student said "lt's the best school in the world." Another replied "lt teaches you more." Life as we have pointed out is not all toil in the classroom for the Fourth Grade. Field trips to the Southwest Museum tor Indian exhibits and to the Los Angeles Museum were some ot their better moments. 5 i i tn ' r in ln short, the Fourth Grade is an industrious, eager, hungry to learn group who, with the help of their teacher, can make it to the top.

Mrs. PaTricia McGee FRIVOLOUS FIFTH by Carla Amparan and Dave Hocker "WhaT do you like abouT The FifTh Grade?" "I like The Teachers, especially Mrs. MCG-ee." "Why do you like Mrs. McGee?" "Because she's funny and nice!" Such would go a conversafion wiTh any one of The Twenty-one fifTh graders. Yes, The Teacher wiTh The liTTle bell is very popular. BuT whaT is The "liTTle bell?" lT's a Tiny gold Tinkler which Tolls The class's doom when They Talk. Unfor- TunaTely Their class characTerisTic is "They love To Talk," according To Mrs. McGee.

One of The many opinions of This was, "lf you're noT, everyone is fighfing all The Time and if you don'T have friends you feel lefT ouT," One of The reasons why They felT being good sporfs was imporTanT was, "lf you aren'T, your friends don'T TrusT you." The lasT quesfion asked To The class was whaT They would wish if They had only one wish. AfTer much ThoughT, one reply was, "ThaT There would be only happiness in The world!" ,. ff9'i'f1'i ff . ,fig E , -,,,,.,Lh, I x it Miss Dolores Caste, Ted Richards and Steve DeWindt THE TRAVELING SIXTH Sam Ditto and Randy Clement This year the Traveling Sixth Grade went on many tours and outings. They traveled by bus to Sherman Oaks to see the Abraham Lincoln Historical Center in the Lincoln Savings and Loans building. There they visited the modern Theater, with dioramas featuring life-like wax figures. ln the museum they viewed possessions of President Lincoln, and photographs of him. Soon after their return from the Center, They went To the Los Angeles County Museum to see the Pre-Columbian Collection. Now it was time for them to participate in their numerous activities at school: basketball, lunch, and studying New Math, English, French, Spelling, and history. For a Mexican assembly they told of well-known Indian groups, known cities and industry. To the Sixth Grade, Berkeley Hall is delightful because of its grass fields. To the girls, Berkeley Hall is a place full of friendly boys and girls. The girls also figured out that "if you aren't friendly, you won'T have any friends," and "Happiness is Love." From all their Travels and studying, the Sixth Graders feel That the predominant thing they learned was not to pass notes! f-as Nav Crow, Laurie Davis, Hallie Fabian, Louis Gardener, Steve Johnson, David Kidson, Jeff Lambert, Mike McCosker, Scott McDowell, Debbie McGee, Margie McKim, Terri McMahan, Mark Martin, Greg May, Ricky Price, Kevin Saunders, Tami Sluyfers, Nicholas Tryon, Wendy Van De Wege, Leo Waits, Kathy Douglas, Madeline lnor shown!

We have been introduced to Jack London and his "Call of the Wild", Rudyard Kipling with stories from Indio, Pearl Buck with her Oriental locale, Charles Dickens from England, besides Robert Browning, Robert L. Stevenson, Mark Twain, and Ernest Seaten. Our concentrated two-week study of the Essay gave us Emerson, Montaigne, Bacon, and Washington Irving, But our newest friend is Mr. Neil Millar, with whom we correspond. He is a writer of essays and wonderful fables for the Christian Science Monitor.

At eight o'clock the library awakened. Fountains rip- pled and danced in wild glee! Doors opened. Fig- ures were moving about. ln we went! The interior of the library was even more ex- quisite than the outside. lt was serene, and it seemed as if we were completely isolated from the near-by hub-bub of the encircling city. Mrs. Zwei- bach, the librarian, sparkled with enthusiasm as she guided us about, telling us how to locate books. We were shown a row of shelves filled with ref- erence books donated by the Kiwanis Club. She demonstrated earphones to be used by students lis- tening to fine records. She explained the history and value of the Newbery Awards and the Calde- cott Medal. We were pleased to see that I, Juan De Poreia, which won the Newbery in 'I966 is a book our Junior High Library has recently acquired. Two theaters, one for the very young and one for adults, intrigued us. But now Time, that old demon, intruded. The new yellow bus stood at attention. Back to Ber- keley Hall with happy memories. FORTUNE CAME OUR WAY Who has been lending a big hand with the Seventh Grade? lt's Mrs. Drake, Though born in La- conia, New Hampshire, she has decided California is the place to live. Mrs. Drake attended Bates College in Maine, then transferred to Principia where she received her degree in mathematics and physics. Her hobbies ore painting, reading, skiing, but her favorite is teaching school, She even had a school of her own in Massachusetts, and was the Director of a new school for Christian Scientists in Torrance. She also taught Seventh and Eighth Grade Math and Science at Wingrock. In T963 Mrs. Drake's two sons were at Berkeley Hall, Dave in Ninth and Jon in Eighth. We are fortunate to have such a qualified math- ematician teaching our Seventh and Eighth Grades' New Math. SEVENTH GRADE SOCIAL STUDIES Wendy Tryon and Laurie Crow The Seventh Graders have toured Europe this year and our notebooks and heads are chuck full of in- teresting facts. We ietted to the British Isles, and with keen interest viewed "Big Ben," Westminster Abbey, the Thames lcalled the River of Kingsl, and Shakespeare's country. Then we hopped across the Channel to Romantic France. It is hard to realize that Paris was once a little village on an island in the Seine. The Eiffel Tower seemed like an old friend. We next crossed the border into the Bene- lux Countries, the most densely populated coun- tries in Europe, where we learned about the im- portance of dikes and canals, and visited the flower covered chocolate' shops and agreed that Dutch chocolate won the prize. Now we flew over to Oslo and spent happy days in the Scandinavian Countries, We were spell- bound by the Midnight Sun and fascinated by the colorful Laplanders. The Nobel Prizes are awarded annually in Oslo and Stockholm. Leif Erickson lived here. Scandinavia is similar to our Alaska in loca- tion and climate. Denmark is a crowded, busy, little country. We visited the "Little Mermaid," and the model dairy farms. Next we enplaned for Ger- many, a country traversed by the beautiful Rhine and filled with scenery, castle-topped hills, cities of renown yet bruised by the bleak Iron Curtain! ls this the country that once gave us art, music like Brahms Lullaby? Czechoslovakia, a land-locked country about the size of our Tennessee, is the most old-world. Its capital, Prague, was founded I2OO years ago, This is the home-land of Anton Dvorak. Next we ex- plored the Danube countries with Vienna as a cen- ter of interest. Here we gloried in the grandeur of Schoenbrunn Palace, and visited the stables of the famed White Horses. ' We hurried on to Greece, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Russia, China, Japan, India, South- east and Southwest Asia. Each country rich in the arts, the mores, the history of different cultures, each one of which has given generously to our own enrichment, our continuously developing strength.

Randy Craft YOU JUST NEVER SNOW WHAT TRIP WE'LL TAKE NEXT "Hapoy Birthday to you-Happy Birthday to you-Happy Birthday dear George!-Happy Birth- day to you!" Any knowledeable resident of Beverly Hills who heard two buses of students sinqing this song, would immediately realize that Berkeley Hall Jr. High was headed for a fun-filled day in snow country on George Washington's birthday. Most of the clay was spent either throwing or aettinq hit by that foreign white stuff that we see so little of in L.A. One special treat was the locat- ing of a steep snow slide high on the hill. Even though we didn't take slecls so high on the hill as one 9th grader stated, "We iust slid down using our ingenuity!" Th- memory of this trio will long outlast the final bit of unmelted snow that made it so much fun, . . and four to go! SPRING Spring is Easter, spring is May, Spring is flowers, bright and gay. Sprinq is the stars hovering high, Spring is the wind with a sinfiing sigh. Spring is bright, spring is ioy, Spring is love 'twixt girl and boy. Spring has feeling she expresses Spring Sprhwq is Easter in crisp white dresses. is the season of our Lord "WERE GONNA BUILD A WHAT HOUSE?" This year the EIGHTH GRADE took on the mon- umental task of building the world's first student- built sod house-an undertaking of strength, pa- tience, and skill. We recruited most of the class for the building crew, The EIGHTH GRADE crew started with high hopes of the mansion to come. Everyone worked feveriously, digging away the sod in tremendous chunks. Sod-sod-sod-and more sod! The sod house was growing right out of the ground! The house was nearing completion when it happened. Rain. It rained day after day. Then it rained some more. We kept awake nights hoping and praying that our house would still stand up until the rain stopped. We now knew how the pioneers must have felt and we recognized many of the hardships that they went through. When the rain finally stopped after an eternity, we ran out to the spot where the sod house had stood. Total disaster. All we have now is pictures, happy memories, and the proud fact that we were first. NEW NUMBERS lRecent Ranksl 8 is lucky 2 have 7 out of 24 as new faces at Berkeley Hall this year. Yes, do you realize that .2916 of the number 'l classZ8, and 4 your in- formation that is greater than V4 of all sacred cows at B.H.! New faces include John Elerding who ioined our class from Walter Reed Jr. High in North Holly- wood, Priscilla Croft who attended Paul Revere Jr. High and Bill Fabian from Robert Fulton Jr. High in Van Nuys. Others are Patty Goodman, Paul Revere Jr. High, Cecelia Holman, who started with Berkeley Hall this year as her first school experience, and Shelley Van De Wege also from Paul Revere. Most recently, during the mid-term, we were ioined by Debbie Willis 'who came to us from Marshall Jr. High in Pasadena. All in all we think the new crew is a mighty fine bunch and we con- gratulate them for their fine taste in selecting a Berkeley Hall education. Who said, "Love is mighter than the sword." Priscilla Croft ACADEMIC ADDITIONS lCurriculum Comments! One popular new elective this year is foods, a tasty course taught by Mrs, Richards, The class is even feeling some masculine influence thanks to Grade 8. Junior High boys and girls are gaining three days a week of valuable experience in cook- ing Casseroles, cookies, bread, salads, and other dishes of deliaht. lf you want to become a famous actor, however, instead of a chef, then Drama is the course- tauaht by Mr. Hoerner. Ten members from the Eighth grarle ioined Mrs. McGee in typing, her f-u-n space c-l-a-s-s space dot. Probably the most elite of all electives is Free- hand Sketchina. tau'1ht by Mr. McGee. One and all the electives have really added spice to our curriculum at Berkeley Hall this year. "lt's a blizzard!"-cries Mr. Hoener as stu dents take revenge on the snow trip.

From where do all these sounds come? Well, even though you'd never believe it, these can be heard at the Ninth Grade Tea. Oh, it's a polite affair all right but you faintly hear noises even though they are often shrouded by gay conversation. This tea has always been a fun affair irr which all Junior High girls and all Junior High mothers participate. The girls learn correct procedures of every facet of a formal tea. As you read this, the tea will already have been held, but presently it's still in the planning stages. Mrs. John Hocker and Mrs. Lionel Krisel are co-chairmen of the event to be held May thirteenth in the Garden Room of the Lovely and elegant Bel Air Hotel. Mrs, Robert Osgood, Mrs. Ellen O'Connor, and Ninth Grade Girls will be in the receiving Line. We have been coached by Mrs. John Fishburn and Mrs, Robert Ricketts. lHope it pays off.l Our sincere thanks to the Past Officers of the Mothers Club, Board of Trustees, and friends of Berkeley Hall for this lovely and meaningful occasion. Mrs. Dorothylea Richards BUSY SCHEDULE Ellen Fishburn, Gale Ricketts, Melinda Clark Mrs. Richards has a tight and busy schedule. The Ninth Grade girls have enioyed her guidance in sewing and have been amazed at her mechanical skill, especially fixing sewing machines. Mrs. Richards is the moving force and director of the Fashion Show, "Tomorrow and Today". It will be held in our beautiful patio. The title, itself, explains the theme. "Today", being modeling girls outfits made in sewing? "Tomorrow", being the modeling of some wayout "hippy outfits", like vinyl aand paper dresses, The girls will enter the patio through a brilliant array of "mod-mod wayout" flowers. These will be made of imitation leather, vinyl, and fake fur. The big- gest and best surprise of all is Elaine Lynn, our commenta- tor. She is nationally known and is giving us this treat. Besides teaching sewing, Mrs. Richards teaches Fourth Grade to make action pictures with movable cardboard figures. The Fifth painted bird pictures, did so well they gave an assembly about birds, World globes is the Sixth project, while Seventh made cut-out forms. The Eighth is learning the four basics of art. Add to these cooking, her elective. This is an interesting and busy schedule but Mrs. Richards has proven she can handle it capably.

"Oh, I adore those earrings, Madame!" These are just a few of the genuine compliments that will send our French teacher blushing and wiping chalk dust across her nose from nervousness. Mrs. Van De Wege, as you can tell, is definitely a pop- ular teacher. We all agree she's tops-not only as "une maitress de la France," but also as a superb dresser. By the end of a forty-five minute French class, Madame will end up literally chalk covered because of us frustrating students. With our new French teacher and new French book, we've had to struggle. Pronouns, so difficult, and past tenses of verbs, as well as terrorizing tests and homework have been given to us. All through this work, we've had dialogues. Some of these, like the ones about fashions, are often quite out-dated and we all, including Madame, have enough of these. Mrs. Van De Wege is always sweet andu stylish though she maintains order. We have learned much this year and are grateful for Madame's help. So, until we meet again, 'iAu Revoir." FINALS by Gale Ricketts Well, the finals are over,-completely over! Now, we can relax a little, and maybe get to bed at a decent hour. Dressing up, arriving at school at the stroke of ten, and leaving at three sharp gave one a feeling of importance. But having to study hours into the night took away some of the glow. These are all part of the tradition followed at Berkeley Hall. Sitting at our desks for two hours, writing, thinking, and more writing was torment but even so, the time passed quickly. Those who finished early could walk around the oval, showing they were kings of the campus, though some studied for the next exam as they strolled. Then there were thoce who knew it all, and played basketball. Anyway, we all survived the finals after much studying for algebra, science, history, French, and English. Friday noon we were ecstatic! Finals were finally over! UTERATURE Ninth Grade Our course has covered writers of many countries and many eras hence we have witnessed characters of different cultures playing their parts upon the worlcfs stage. Many points of view widen our mental periphery and offer higher goals. We started with Maupassant with his masterpieces. This study gave us strong guidlines for evaluating the short story. Stephen Vincent Benet gave us ci strong warning clothed in compelling language and leaving us with much fuel for contemplation. Maugham evaluates "goodness-iust goodness" for us. irving Stone, the master of the biographical novel, makes history alive. Shakespeare and Homer take us from Arden Woods through outer space, returning by way of London and Rome. Our mental luggage shows no wear yet replete with rich rewarding experiences. Literature is the best Travel Agentl Mrs. Ruth Dlouhy P' "W-'tL.,,. ., .. 4. Mrs. Arlene Van De Wege ARE woon FIBERS REALLY A POLYMER? by Patty Reeder If you don't know the answer im- mediately, don't feel bad. Our extensive Ninth Grade knowledge did not cover such things, either, until Mr. Heintz came to teach us Science. Every Monday morning Mr. Heintz would greet us with "Good morning, class. This is the easiest test yet." Which of course, it wasn't. But we struggled through, consoled by the fact that the Seventh and Eighth Grades were having the same trouble. We studied astronomy, the atom, elec- tricity, and mechanics, while the Seventh and Eighth Grades were learning biology. One method of learning we employed was movies. All agreed the "Thursday morning flics" were the most enioyable form of education we'd ever had. Then to prove our skills as future chemists and scientists we performed several experi- ments. With all this we added a great wealth of scientific terms to our vocabu- laries. The highlight of science was the second annual Science Fair, in which prizes were given for the best displays. This was truly a fascinating course. Oh yes, wood fibers really are a polymer!

The second semester, providing our grades were up to par, we were allowed to choose an elective for three days a week. The list of choices were-algebra, study hall, typing, cooking, drama, and free-hand sketching. When you enter any one of these classes, they are far from quiet. For example, outside the science room one can hear tipity, tap, tap, with Mrs. McGee, Moving over to the auditorium sounds of "Swanee" prompted by Mr. Hoerner, some on and off-key can be heard. On to the cooking room with such delicious aromas, Mrs. Richards is directing boys and girls in the art of cooking to the accompaniment of clank- ing pots and pans. The one area that is fairly quiet is the drafting room, here, there is occasional scratching and Mr. McGee thinking. The Seventh, Eighth, and Ninth Grade rooms hold study halls with Mrs. O'Connor, Mrs. Van De Wege, and Mrs. Evans. Though these are suppose to be, these rooms are not always quiet either. A refreshing and welcomed change was offered by the electives, and we're all grateful for the arrangement. A MUSICAL PURTLE by Ellen Fishburn A musical Purtle is a new kind of person invented by Berkeley Hall. lt teaches all about music to the First through Ninth Grades. What a task! Her first iob is to tackle the Primary . . . LOTS OF LUCK! They are learning to read notes by writing them on staff paper. They also have a share period, to share new songs learned. The intermediate music department will witness a fab- ulous performance of "Alice in Wonderland" by the Fourth Grade. They have also put to music three of Robert Louis Stevensons poems. The Fifth Grade discovered that songs of Washington's and Lincoln's time have influenced history. They have spent much time working on their patriotic assembly. The fun of playing ukes is delighting the Sixth Grade, but they claim they are really working on three-port harmony. The Seventh Grade is slowly but surely learning the in- struments in the orchestra, and picking them out listening to records, while the Eighth Grade is mainly working on the development of musical history. Mercifully Mrs, Purtle has been spared having the Ninth Grade very often. If we had to be serious, we'd all fail. However, I think to say that Mrs. Purtle is a great asset to the school would be a good note to end on, A ROUGH DRAFT by Dave Hocker At 10.35 a great wail arises on the Berkeley Hall campus. "I want my mommy!" "l'd rather sail with Captain Bligh!" What is it that scares us all? Yes of course, it's drafting. Oh, it's not really that bad. lt iust seems that way. Mr. McGee, our fearless leader, is the cause of our trepidation. Not only does he take valuable minutes away from our shield-construction time, but he even demands a whole page of lettering in only a week, But some of our more valiant draftsmen hold out on him every week, regarding this period. Now, don't get the idea that drafting is all work and not play. As a matter of fact, some of us have become quite proficient in the art of turning a T-square into rifle, or sword, or even violin and the more imaginative seal others' fingers together. While we are doing these fun things, Mr. McGee amuses himself with special proiects, such as our suggestion box, or starting blocks for track. He is often found reminiscing about the good old days in high school when he used to break down fences with the shot put. I guess when you get right down to it, though, Mr. McGee is a pretty good guy. Who else would be brave enough to teach athletics, shop, and drafting all in one day? f is fl 3 Uh: as li A' Y' u ,ay A I ,. , RANDY: Randy is really a dandy. For lots of things he's always handy. His shining blonde hair sends out a call And many a girl has been known to fall. CARLA: Carla's always hoping that one clay she'll be A famed, well-known performer, a movi e star, you see. She'd get up in the morning and then go to the set For she's always saying, "l'll meet Mike MIKE: Mike is a devotee of all sports, And with the girls he sometimes cavorts. His free-hand sketches surprised us all. Landon yet." From his goal as an architect he shall never fall. PENNY: There are few foods this girl will abide Especially from milk she will hide. Though her eyes aren't jeweled and her We'd take Penny over Cleo any old day. CINDY: In P.E. she is excelling, Though she's not so fast in spelling lt's giggling she does the best All algebra tests she'lI leave to the rest. SAM: His muscles Sam could never lose. Gym is the only subject he would choose His cute little smile could win any heart, Of throwing erasers he's made an art. PATTY: clothes aren't risque Patty's got a habit of being late for class, lf you want to find her, she's gabbing onthe grass. She hopes to be an artist and in this she Being the finest of her special breed. shall succeed MELINDA: Melinda's clothes, we all agree Are as great as great can be. Coffee is her favorite drink And she'll try anything but think. DAVE M.: A muscle man he'll never be In cracking iokes he deserves a degree. He's always hounded because of his hair, He'd never win a match with a grizzly bear. ELLEN: Some say Ellen will stop talking yet, Though her mouth is propelled like a iet. Mrs. O'Connor's assistant is she And she rarely receives less than a BOB: Bob's clothes are quite rare. He hates to mess up his hair. To wear paisley he is apt, And to the girls he does adapt. GALE: In sports Gale is really tops. When giggling in French she rarely stops. She's always seen with a happy grin Even in the Olympics she'll probably win. VIUPX X lu ,....M bla as LYNNE: Lynne is oh, so quiet in class, But once outside she's a noisy lass. Home is what she really enioys Besides lot coursel boys, boys, boys! DAVE H.: Dave's knowledge is really outstanding. On Mrs. O's patience he is demanding. He acts like the ruler of all So, in homage on our knees we must fall. WENDY. Wendy is known as the polar bear. Her mad attacks are far from rare. Soy sauce and lemon iuice is what she enioys And in all her classes she makes the most noise. ROGER: In his studies he is not really brilliant, But his personality is truly resilient. In the Bible study he did excel While in sports he does quite well. MRS. O'CONNOR: A lion, a dragon, a grutt bear is she And delirious she'll always be. She thinks she rules with an iron hand Although she gives in to our every demand. 23 cu-xSS HISTORY by Dave Hocker and Dave Marshall The following is the New Testament of the Class of '67, translated out of the original scrawlings and with the former translations diligently compared and revised by special command of Her Maiesty, Mrs. O'Connor. The Gospel According to Pre-School Teachers Chapter l Now the birth of the Class of '67 was on this wise: When in the year 1955, there came to the city of Beverly Hills three strangers, called Patty, Wendy, and Ellen, who, having achieved the age of three years, did stay in the house of a certain Miss Giles, and did eat and sleep in that house, and she ministered unto them. Chapter 2 And, after a stay of some four seasons, the travelers did come unto the house of Mrs. Owen, and there did stay, occupying themselves with paint and fingers, and making merriment accompanied by music played by Mrs. Owen. Chapter 3 After a soiourn of appropriate time, they did approach the land belonging to Mrs. Scallan, and there did meet two men named Dave Hocker and Roger Remick, truck-racers by profession, and all did enioy this pastime, and followed it. Chapter 4 And on the fourth day of the week there appeared a star in the heavens, and a miracle was wrought, by which the class, as it now was called, did graduate to the next plane of existence, known as the Primary. The Gospel According to Primary Teachers Chapter l The star did lead the class to a new lodging, under the roof of a Mrs. Davis, but on the way Ellen departed from them, fearing the new experience of "Dick and .lane." But in this lodging they were met by Mike, so that their number was maintained. Chapter 2 And Mrs. Davis taught them, but she spake in parables, such that none could understand, saying such things as "2 plus 2 equals 4." But none listened, but rather left the place, and went instead to the house of Mrs. lwert. There things were more to their liking, for there were field trips and self government. Chapter 3 Now the stay in what was known as Second Grade was pleasant, but it came time to leave, so the class moved to the house of a neighbor, named Mrs. Upton, who stood two cubits high. And this woman did labor all day, and then she did labor all night, for she took delight in a practice known as homework. But her demands were met, and advancement was made to the Fourth Grade. The Gospel According to Intermediate Teachers Chapter l And the class did come into a new land, and did live under the care of Mrs. Hill, a woman with an affliction for many years, known as teaching. But this woman had faith, and did educate her students as to the ways of another nation, the American Indians. And the young class did wax strong in knowledge, and did perform in public assemblies. Chapter 2 But the day of departure did come, and the class did move to the house of Mrs. McGee, a power- ful woman who did perform wonders with a little bell, which rang to announce sorrowful news. Under this roof there came Gale and Penny, and Ellen returned, and they were all united. There a great education was had in 'the story of the past generations, and great progress was made so that the class ascended up, and was taken into a great chariot driven by Mrs. Henry, and were ioined by Sam Ditto. Chapter 3 And the class made a perilous iourney with Mrs. Henry, but did learn, even long division and stories of other nations. But soon their stay ended, and a new city was visited, shining with iasper and gold. And the class entered the city. The Gospel According to Junior High Teachers Chapter i Now, in the tenth year of travels, the class came to the Seventh Grade, a Christian country whose Queen was Mrs. Evans, and there were ioined by Dave Marshall, who was from a land afar off. The class did then enioy such liveliness as dances, and sports among the elders, and the scribes did write down the class affairs, and were called secretaries. Chapter 2 And it came to pass that the class did err, and passed along to the Eighth Grade, where Cindy did share their fate, and Sam did desert them. And there they did work with Mrs. Hall, and learned the law of their land, and other laws besides, known as English rules. Chapter 3 But in due time they were delivered, and the princes did become Kings, and the princesses Queens, and there were added to them Bob, Carla, Randy, Lynne, Melinda, and Sam. And in the Ninth Grade they were led by Mrs. O'Connor, a woman who worshipped a false god known as Algebra. But they avoided this, choosing rather to hear her speak, for she spoke with rare humor. And they also had electives, and studied to be scientists, and some to be architects, and many performed publicly. And the sixteen rulers came to be called the "Kings and Queens of the Campus."

Why do grades one through three run to their tumbling class? Why do the Fifth and Sixth Grades practice at recess? Yes, it's Nancy Walker who teaches modern dance, tap, ballet, and tumbling. Mrs. Walker is the wife of Kim Walker, a Berkeley Hall alumnae. She has been dancing since she was five, and started teaching at ten. She visited the Orient with a U.S.O. tour, and also appeared in the musical "Bye, Bye, Birdie". For three years she danced with the Los Angeles Junior Ballet Company. Her hob- bies are surfing, dancing, acrobatics, and swimming. She states emphatically that being a housewife is her favorite hobby. CAN YOU IMAGINE? Dave Marshall Can you imagine Mrs. Bagley as a football coach? Well, believe it or not Mrs. Bagley did substitute for Mr. McGee one day. Having a Masters Degree from U.C.L,A. is only one of her qualifications. She loves to teach and proves this by contributing her time. She has taught almost everything that there is to teach from tieing shoes in the Nursery to English in the Ninth Grade. When the Seventh Grade was in temporary need of a teacher, Mrs. Bagley stepped in and filled the need. Just one example of her love and support ol Berkeley Hall. 26 Miss Dolores Cagler OUR NEW TRAVELER Gale Ricketts Cindy Wissler Miss Casler, the teacher of Sixth Grade, is finding her first year at Berkeley Hall pleasant and productive. Born in Deer- horn, Michigan, she came to us from Detroit, where she taught Sixth through Twelfth Grades. After graduating from Wayne College in Detroit, she became a valued Sunday School Teacher and a faithful worker on many church committees in the Christian Science Church. Her hobbies are photography and travel. Some of the places she has visited are England, Holland, Germany, Switzer- land, France, Virgin Islands, Haiti, Cuba, Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, and many parts of United States. Mrs. Margaret Bagley 1 1 I 1 1 1 WATUSI WINNER by Gale Ricketts and Cindy Wissler "Now, radio station B,H.S. will bring you an up to the minute provocative biographical report on Mrs. Arlene Van De Wege. Who is the most active teacher around? Why it's our Mrs. Van De Wege! This year while at a skiing lodge, she won first prize for the Watusi. Besides dancing and skiing, she climbs mountains, plays tennis, paints and even was on a competitive swim team at the University of Michigan. Mrs. Van De Wege was born in Hackensack, New Jersey and is a graduate of University of Michigan. She has taught in Michigan, New Jersey, New York and even Rome, Italy. She has traveled through many European countries, Egypt, and the Caribbean. Her career has varied for she was once the assistant to the editor of the IEEE Magazine and helped edit college textbooks, Shelley, Leonard, and Jay are her children and presently they all reside in Westwood Village, Now a word from Mrs. Van De Wege herself, 'I think teaching at Berkeley Hall is one of the finest experiences in my life.' " K---A --144.11 i Em Elm asfp. THE MAN WITH 200 TIES Gale Ricketts and Cindy Wissler How many people do you know who have both a rock collection and a tie collection? Well, the first on your list can be Mr. Louis Heintz, science teacher. After living in Arkansas and Michigan, Mr. Heintz went to UCLA where he obtained his Bachelor's Degree. At USC he got his Mcister's Degree, and now he is seeking his Ph.D. Although Mr. Heintz looks very kind he was a boxer some years ago. At UCLA he played football and was part of a boat-racing crew. He also enioys fishing. Mr. Heintz enioys his teaching tremendously. Besides his Sunday School class at 17th Church, he has an adult class at San Fernando Valley and one at South Gate. He has traveled in Hawaii, Mexico, Alaska, Canada, and the Western United States. This summer he will visit India. We all hope he'lI be back-with his ties-to teach Science at Berkeley Hall, MYSTERY PERSON Gale Ricketts and Patty Reeder Who has taught French for two weeks, Seventh and Eighth Grade New Math for one week, and is now teaching Sixth Grade New Math at Berkeley Hall? Clue one: Her daughter, Diane, is in the Sixth Grade. If you still don't know who this important mystery fig- ure is, here are some vital facts about her. First, she is a native Californian. Berkeley Hall was the scene of her educa- tion in the Seventh and Eighth Grades. Later she attended Stanford for three years and completed her schooling at the University of Denver where she received her teaching creden- tials, The final clue is that she can be seen frequently ot golf courses and swimming pools because golf, swimming, and diving are her favorite sports. Now, certainly you have solved the identity of the mystery person. lf you are thinking it is Mrs. Warne, you're right. SANTA CLAUS FOR A PRlNClPAL?? Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. However, he goes by the alias of Robert T. Cheatham, and' he does not possess some of the characteristics you may think. Play basketball, he can. Slide down a chimney, he can't. And he's also confused as to his proper costume. He is more frequently seen in red socks, or paisley ties, than the appropriate red suit. But don't hold that against him. And don't let your little friends tell you he's non-exist- ent. He'lI always exist, as long as little girls continue to wear short skirts, and boys to wear long hair. Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in intra-mural athletics, or new basketball courts, or even electives! And no one can conceive all the won- ders there are unseen, like Love expressed and error over- come. You see, Virginia, if it were not for Santa Claus Cheatham, there might still be iust a little jealousy, or vengeance. But his radiated, kind demeanor alleviates the trouble. You might think that S.C.C. has enough on his hands at Berkeley Hall. But that selfless hero also finds time to be First Reader at Seventeenth Church. Years from now, Virginia, we will remember his up- lifted and uplifting thought. We now take this chance to thank him for everything he has given to us, and will continue to give us, consciously and unconsciously, throughout the coming years. Wir. Hlzerzfhrzm ref Mrs. Lucy St. John Mr. Hal Haerner OUR LITTLE BIG DADDY Dave Hocker Mister Hoerner Iknown as "Hal" only when you're farther than fifty miles from school and the sun is shiningl is the little Big Daddy of Berkeley Hall. Last year he was the exciting teacher of science, This year he is in charge of the Eighth Grade. As an A-l jack-of-all-trades, he also keeps up maintenance, instructs intermediate boys' Phys, Ed., takes pictures, records shield songs, and serves as adviser to the Student Council. His youthful and fun-filled ideas make him the receiver of everyone's respect and admiration. He also heads the BFR, Mr. Hoerner attended the University of Nebraska and Principia College before coming to Berkeley Hall. He is a fiend at the organ, as was proved during our first dance this year. He is well-known for his secret proiects, which are carried out with the aid of his accomplice ler, rather, wifel, the former Sandi Luerssen. No one will forget GOOOHHAA Day, will we, gang? Heavens, noll We are all extremely grateful for Mr. Hoerner's contin- uous contributions to Berkeley Hall, and we hope that he will continue teaching here for many more years.

The Chief Elf is Mrs. St. John, often seen hiding in the closet when a camera is near. Mrs. Ward is Vice-Elf in charge of sales. Ann is also head of the Typing Ward. Santa's secretary is Mrs. Lipscomb. The recruiting elf is Mrs. Craft, One of the busiest "helpers" does not really serve Santa. Her name is Mrs. Crow, and she is the Mother's Club Secretary. The sixth and newest elf is Mrs. McKeown. She is an all-around helper, but her main job is that of book- keeper for Santa's workshop. As you enter the workshop, you can't help noticing the bustling atmosphere of eager workers. The spryest sprite, Mrs. Ward, greets you by the door, and will either answer your question or refer you to another pixy who can. Usually this is the Chief Elf, but occasionally a iunior helper will be of service. Sometimes Santa's advice is required. But always the six Helpers are ready to lend o friendly hand. 1- Mrs Sue Greene Ani- fi ' Rm Geneva Wiggins Lena Smith i DID YOU EVER NOTlCE??

Q ' r , -v NEW ADDITIONS TO BERKELEY HALL'S CAMPUS Patty Reeder and Randy Clement As far as beauty goes, the new lawn and pathways in back of the Ninth Grade building are most attractive. lt certainly looks as though a great deal of loving thought, careful planning, and real work had gone into it. Somehow the place has a whole new mood-cheerful and modern. But our precious sundial still graces the lawn reminding us of the friends that gave it to Berkeley Hall. That is only part of the construction. The former parking lot has been added to the basketball and tennis court area. Several trees have been cut down giving the Ninth Grade room more light and a beautiful view of the campus. We can even see the Mother Goose Building, now that the covering over the sandpile has been removed. Our cafeteria at Berkeley Hall has been completely redecorated. Before, the cafeteria was nice, but now it is delightful! The doors leading to the cafeteria have been painted, new drapes have been hung, the color scheme has been changed, and the walls have been panelled in deep rich mahogany. All this adds immeasurable beauty to our cafeteria. So, with the new lovely lawn, the parking lot, the basketball and tennis court, and the cafeteria, there is much to be thankful for. The campus is so mmfch larger and prettier-all the more reason to be grateful and proud of Berkeley Hall and of the Trustees who made this possible. Our special gratitude goes to Mrs. Josephine Lewis, whose generosity and perseverance trans- formed the south end of our campus. It it a beautiful sight, giving all great ioy. Sunday October sixteenth several hundred arents and friends of Berkele OPEN HOUSE Mrs. John Hacker f f P Hall enioyed the Mothers' Club Open House on the burgeoning campus. An annuall affair, this meeting afforded us an opportunity to get better acquainted with the Berkeley Hall family, greet new parents, and meet the ever-increasing staff. This year we also had the opportunity to become acquainted with the many new facil- ities and improvements in the campus buildings. They all create a warm, happy, inviting atmosphere that makes us grateful that our children are enioying the unique experience ofa Berkeley Hall education, Becky Osgood, this year's Mothers Club President, opened the meeting. Her readings set the theme by bringing us a sense of expectation of ever-greater ac- complishment for Berkeley Hall in the year ahead. Mr. Cheatham welcomed the guests and encouraged them to visit the children's classrooms and talk with their special subiect teachers. Later we had refreshments in one of the most attractive improvements-the cafeteria. There we greeted old friends and new, and left with an even greater anticipation for the years ahead. MT. BALDY OR BUST! Carla Amparan and Melinda Clark If anyone had been listening, he would have heard: "Let's sing 'lf I Had a Hammer'." "Pass the candy around," "Where's the snow?" This was Washington's Birthday, and two Berkeley Hall school buses were rumbling up the steep hillsides to Mt. Baldy. Everyone was excited, happy, and looking forward to fun in the snow. Mr. Hoerner was in charge, After roll call, we began trudging up the mountain. There was a strong scent of dried pine needles and clean forest air, Finally, the snow! Everyone dashed up quickly and grabbed giant handfuls of snow to put down someone's back. Pieces of cardboard, trash can lids, and coats were used to slide down the icy slopes. The morning was fun, and after lunch there was to be more. Two whole hours left for snow-ball fights and sliding down the hills. Then the time came to leave. The buses filled with tired, soggy passengers and started for home. But there was one more surprise to come . . . a stop at the Frosty Freeze. The attendants must have been frightened when orders came for twenty milk-shakes and fifteen cones, but all survived, es- pecially the students. 32 CLASH DAY Bob Brown "Was it purple with blue and green or was it a combina- tion of three different paisleys?" asked one member of the class. The overwhelming answer was, "All three!" Yes, there were paisleys, purples, plaids, stripes, polka-dots, and even a misplaced garter as the Ninth Grade kicked off its tradi- tional "Clash Day." All the members of the class thoroughly enioyed the entire day as Mr. Cheatham OK'd our stunt, While walking from class to class, the other students on campus came up with loving remarks such as, "Your colors don't go together," and i'You're not supposed to wear two different kinds of shoes!" All of these remarks were enioyed because the Ninth Grade knew they would never have the chance again, at least not at Berkeley Hall. Some of the wildest outfits were three paisley patterns with a ieweleal hat to top it off-a pair of purple pants with a solid purple T-shirt and a green shirt with a red tie. But when one of the boys walked in with shorts, high blue socks, boots, and a wild hat, the day was complete. There was only one thing wrong. Mrs. O'Connor had not been told about the event, so when the class arrived she was upset because she didn't have anything on that clashed. At noon the girls "duded" her up to look like the rest of us, I am sure that Clash Day '67 was a delight to all who viewed it, and to all of us who participated, it was a clash- ing success. A GOOD WAY TO LEARN Penny Hill In assembly on February lOth, Shelley Van de Wege, Treasurer of the Student Council, introduced the program with the Flag Salute and Daily Prayer. Then she turned the pro- gram over to Mr. Cheatham, who was followed by Mr, Richard Lipscomb, who was willing to give his time to show us a film on the Los Angeles County Museum. Mr. Lipscomb gave a talk and then showed the film, which he had compiled. The film covered all the items one can see in the museum, such as a mummy and extinct animals from early times. What a confortable way to be educated! Mr. Cheatham then had surprises for each Junior High grade. Each class got an album for pictures. Then came the greatest blow of all. We received our l.D, cards to be punched when we participate in school activities. When we saw our pictures, was it a shock! At any rate, the program and its surprise benefits were enioyed by all. Everyone agreed that movies are a good way to learn. A HIGH SCHOOL DEBATE? Carla Amparan Should women be conscripted into the armed forces? Yes! No! This calls for a debate, and that's exactly what the Ninth Grade decided to have. "Practice makes perfect." That was their motto. Re-writing, timing, all this had to be done. Then came the day when all this work would show up in a terrific debate. November 8, 1966 was the date. When the curtain slowly opened, the debators were sitting calmly at two tables. On the affirmative side were Wendy Smith, Randal Clement, and Mike Dow, On the negative side were Patty Reeder, Dave Hacker, and Dave Marshall. All of the speeches were excellent and the debators brought out many good points. The affirmative side stressed the fact that women could do the desk jobs now being done by men in the service. One of the negative points was that if women were to serve, they would decrease the morale of the men. Dave Marshall brought a chuckle to the audience when he spoke of women as a distraction to men at their work. The iudges based their decision on the quality of the ma- terial, vocabulary, eyes on the audience, and posture. The affirmative side did well, but the negative team was vic- torious. After the debate the children were congratulated by their parents and friends. It had been a wonderful experience for all of us, and especially for those on the teams. THANKSGIVING SERVICE Gale Ricketts One of our oldest and most loved traditions at Berkeley Hall is the Ninth Grade Thanksgiving Service, following the order for that service, given in the Manual of the Mother Church by Mary Baker Eddy. The service was held Wednesday, November 23, at two o'clock. Mike Dow and Wendy Smith conducted a sincere and meaningful service. The Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Grades attended, as well as parents, relatives, and friends. Mrs. Brookins' solo, accompanied by Mrs. Purtle on the organ, added much to the service. The Ninth Grade boys, serving as ushers, helped to make it a dignified meeting. The testimonies which followed the reading were so simple and so genuine that the whole service was most impressive. We wish to thank Mrs. O'Connor for her helpful guidance and supervision. 33 Mr, Lipscomb SLOSH, SLOSH, WIGGLE WIGGLE Patty Reeder, Wendy Smith, Ellen Fishburn Rain and mud, rain and mud, it was everywhere. But did that stop us from going to the first dance of the year? Of course not. The first part of the dance was instruction by Mr. and Mrs. Cornell. We learned such dances as the "wiggle, wiggle, point, wiggle, wiggle, point," otherwise known as the rhumba, and how to do the nitty-gritty. After being taught several dances, we played an elimination game. The four winners were Randy Clement, Bob Brown, Elisa Belvedere, and Patty Reeder. At refreshment time our faces brightened and na wonder -we were served delicious donuts and punch. Next, entertainment began with Dave Hacker as MC. Ellen Fishburn, Elisa Belvedere, and Lynne Stringfellow did a clever lip-sing of "You Keep Me Hangin' On." Then a group of motorcyclists roared in, whizzed around the auditorium, dismounted, and -sauntered onto the stage. The two booted girls, one with long Cher hair played the cymbals, and the other with a growing-out Sasson cut beat out the music on the drum. There was a tall guy with long hair, well known for playing the best horn west of the Mississippi. The other groovy fellow teased notes out of the organ in an absorbed style. An enthusiastic audience screamed as the group played "Winchester Cathedral", and sang 'Snoopy and the Red Baron." Dancing soon resumed. When the dance ended we dis- covered the names of the motorcyclists-Mr. Cheatham, Mr. Hoerner, Mrs. O'Connor, and Mrs. Evans-believe it or not. ON THE TWELFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS Patty Reeder Actually, this was the ninth night before Christmas. Sa what does the title have to do with it? You will find out later, iust as we did. By 8:30 that memorable night most of the students had arrived, and decided that they had the wrong place. This couldn't be the auditorium, could it? And that music was good. This band, the unequalled "Clique'f let out some fan- tastic sounds and songs. The stage was lighted with soft al- ternating colored lights. On one side of the auditorium was the Christmas tree and on the other the Sugar Plum Tree. All this added to the holiday touch. The terrific wall decorations, created by the Eighth Grade girls, made the room a perfect background for the colorful party dresses of the girls and the carefully groomed and well-dressed boys. The number dance involved a good deal of confusion but was fun. Then came the refreshments. The Mothers' Club really outdid themselves that night, and the food was positively delicious. When the intermission ended, the dancing resumed. Toward the end of the evening the Spotlight Dance-with a spotlight revolving on a record player-began. Dancing continued until a quarter of eleven and with the last dance having only the lights of the Christmas tree. When this was over, the parents flocked in. Now came the Twelve Days of Christmas. As we sang each part, a group would get up and act a day of the Twelve. Parents, students, and friends all rolled in their chairs as others bravely tried to do their parts, Ta end a wonderful evening, all the lights but those on the Christmas tree were again turned off and carols were sung. With that ends my tale of the ninth night before Christmas, 34 INTERMEDIATE HALLOWEEN Mindy Emmons, 5th Grade On October 29 the ghosts and goblins invaded the audi- torium. lt was the Intermediate Halloween Party, of course. lt was the best in Berkeley Hall history. The first event on this scary night was the costume parade. The costumes were the funniest ever seen. Next the Sixth Grade had a relay race. They were divided into two groups. They were to run across the auditorium and take a soda cracker off the table and eat it, At the same time they were to whistle. This was iust the beginning of the fun. The Fourth Grade had its turn next. They played musical chairs. Our musicians were the organ and Mrs, Purtle. The last game was musical hats played by the Fifth Grade. Everybody then took seats and there was entertainment. lt was a magic act called "Toni and Ted". How we enjoyed that! The Fourth and Fifth Graders heard a witch tell a spooky story while the Sixth Graders went through the inner sanctum lthe scary horror house in the gym dressing rooml. Finally, everybody had yummy refreshments-a good fi- nale to a fun-filled evening. 9:43 V2 Dave Hacker, Patty Reeder We couldn't have danced all night. There was iust too much excitement. Why? Because it was the Shield Dance, Feb- ruary l8, and we just couldn't get over our thrillingly marvel- ous shield. The dance began at eight o'clock, with Dave Marshall as MC, saying, "Will everybody please dance? If you don't we're going to have a grand march!" The dance proceeded and re- freshment time came. At exactly 9:43'f2, we, Class of '67, took our places on the stage, in front of our halo-ringed shield. The auditorium was completely dark, except for that amber glow, outlining a shadowy octagon. Suspense mounted until the words "Now the big moment has come to show you our Thinker" cued Mr. Hoerner to turn on the auburn light that made our shield glow. Then, as the last notes of our Shield Song tune, "Born Free," died out, the brilliant white spotlight illuminated our masterpiece for all to see. Our hours of designing, planning, and sculpturing paid off. Thanks go to Mr, Hoerner, for his time, equipment, and ideas, to Mr. McGee for his guidance, and to Mrs. O'Connor for her time and energies. i if "X U55 Kim Walker THE MUSTARD WAGON David Johnson, and Cindy Wissler "All right now, let's quiet down," are the unheeded words of Kim Walker. It is no wonder no one responds-no one hears him! Finally, he gives up, and with a turbulent tremelo of noise comparable to a pack of roaring lions, some fifty Berkeley Hall students embark on a voyage more fantastic than the one in the movie. Our transportation unit, commonly referred to as a "bus", is marked I-ll, alias the Valley Bus or the Mustard Wagon. I believe there are people in this world who still think man unable to fly. BAH, HUMBUGI On our bus, everyone flies! They fly up and down, this way and that, until no one can perceive where anyone is. To top it off, our engine sounds like a hive full of bee:-with a cold. This, as you can imagine, adds to the al- ready indescribable chaos. The driver of this big yellow thing is Kim Walker, Nancy's husband, Kim went to Berkeley Hall from T957 to I959. Since relieving Bill Swan, Kim has had the exciting experiences of having his fire extinguisher borrowed but not returned, and cleaning egg off his windshield after Halloween. Everyone on the bus thinks he's great and although he sometimes runs into gates he's as safe as any driver there is. THE ROARING LYON Gale Ricketts and Dave Hocker i'Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the busiest bus driver of all?" Why, it's Ken Lyon! After driving the Palisades bus early in the year, Ken is now in charge of the Glendale transport service. He also teaches athletics and keeps up the campus. The Roaring Lyon, from Long Beach, went to Berkeley Hall from Nursery to Seventh Grade, and then went to Principia. There he was on the football, basketball, soccer, and track teams. He also loves music, and his skill in the French lan- guage often boffles many of the students here. Ken is planning to attend UCLA next fall and maior in Physical Education. When he goes, he'll surely be missed by the populace of Berkeley Hall. I 411. Ken Lyon Mrs. Brown THE BOSS BROWN Davie Ledbetter Wendy Smith Mrs. Dolores Brown, driver of the Ingle- wood and Santa Monica bus, has o wide variety of talents. Among these is cook- ing. This native of Detroit makes Holly bread, oatmeal, cookies, crazy cakes and Bismarks. These are her specialties. Once a model, this long-haired, ava- cado green-eyed woman, takes art in- struction, is a noon yard teacher, as well as driving o bus. lWhat o schedulelll With Bob, Barbara, Brenda, and Brett, her children, around the house, Mrs. Brown has learned to abide modern music. She attends Huntington Church and is a resident of Bell Gardens. With her wide variety of interests and good sense of humor, Mrs. Brown makes a truly rnar- velous mother and a boss bus driver. DAVIE LEDBETTER, DRIVER OF THE BOSS BUS Ellen Fishburn Davie's favorite words are "boss" and "cool", and if you take these words letter by letter, they describe him. B stands for the boyishness about him. He loves children, and likes to be with them . . . maybe that's why he wants to become a teacher. When asked why he liked to drive the bus, he shouted over the noise, "Because I like people and chil- dren, and they make me feel like one of the gang!" O stands for his originality-like wearing gym shorts over his regular shorts. The first S stands for smart. He goes to UCLA lor the "factory"l. He has gone so far as to try and study on the bus -lotsa luck! The second S is the most important-his love of Christian Science. His goal in life is to be the best Christian Scientist he can. C in "cool" stands for cool. His favorite car is the Porsche, and his favorite station is KHJ, which definitely makes him cool. The first O stands for his outstondingness. He's outstand- ing in all sports, especially skiing, football, basketball, and golf. As o matter of fact, he's on UCLA's golf team. The second O stands for the optimism in him. He always looks on the best side of a problem, and the good side of a person. The L stands for his favorite synonym-love. Davie defi- nitely always reflects love to all, and he is definitely loved by all. BERKELEY HALL'S AFRICAN SAFARI Lynne Stringfellow and Wendy Smith A safari to Africa, in Beverly Hills? Well, that's iust what we took with the Ronald Halls as our guides. The famous Treetops Hotel in Africa was our first stop. Next, a delightful visit with the Adamsons, well-known for "Born Free." We noticed that animals, such as gnus, vultures, gazelles, rhinos, elephants, cheetahs, and lions are the real kings of Africa. Among the most unusual animals we saw were the famous black-maned lions. We also had a close look at the fierce warriors of the Masai tribe. Our safari to the "Untamed Continent" took us to all four corners of Kenya and Nircbi. Although we didn't go in body, we certainly did go in spirit by way of Mr. Hall's beau- tiful slides and the Halls' wonderful commentary-both of which made us feel as if we were really there. 35 Thank you fora trip we won't forget. Zflb' 2744. IC. Kmiesf Each year an American l-listory essay contest is sponsored by the Beverly Hills Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Last year the topic was "George Washington's Advice" for the students in the Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Grades. Three silver medals, the highest honors, were won by Berkeley Hall students, and four other students received certificates on honorable mention. As approximately three hundred papers were submitted, we were pleased by the excellent showing of our students. This year, the subject was "American Naval Battles and Heroes." Again Berkeley Hall was represented on the winning list. We had two state winners, Mike Lambert, Seventh Grade, and Andy Fishburn, Sixth Grade. Winners selected by the Beverly Hills DAR Chapter include: Sixth Grade, Andy Fishburn first, Steve De Windt second, and Doug Campbell, third, Seventh Grade, Mike Lambert first, Laurie Crow second, and Louis Fabian third, Eighth Grade, Randal Craft first and Tom Asher second. The whole school found this a rich and rewarding experience. Mike Lambert's winning paper contained these quotes about the "Battle of Midway": "lt was a smashing victory for the U.S. fleet. This action, and only this action, proved to Japan that she was not invincible. "The intelligence and loyalty of the tireless, valiant men in our armed services prove the United States is still 'the land of the free and the home of the brave'." - .1 Steve De Windt, Andy Fishburn, and Doug Campbell Andy Frshbum and Mike Lambert Mike Lambert, Laurie Crow, and Louis Fabian Randy Craft and Tom Asher 6 3 z Q I- Q Q 3 :L 9 E I 5 2 1 I Q 5 3 52 S i 5 2 1, A ,Q f . 2 .

Behind the team were the spirited Cheerleaders. The Barons were giants in the presence of Rexford, and had an advantage in height, weight, and ability. Every Junior High grade was represented. The kickoff, by Mike Dow, commenced the activity. With brilliant defense, we immediately recovered the ball and made a touchdown. The Barons had scored twenty more paints at the end of the game, largely on the efforts of Tom Asher, the team captain, and Sam Ditto. Rexford scored once to bring the final score to twenty-six to six. The perpetual trophy now rests in our showcase, where we hope it will stay for many years. ports "WE STILL LOVE YOU!" "Calla penalty! Are you blind!" "Don't listen to them!" Argue, argue. A regular Blue-White game? Hardly! The occasion? The Faculty- Junior High Football game. The Faculty team consisted of the fol- lowing assortment of vulgar brutes: Bob Cheatham, Davie Ledbetter, Kim Walker, Hal Hoerner, Ken Lyon, Vince McGee, and Maior Gustavis. They used every loathsome trick in the game of football to defeat their opponents. The greatly overmatched student team, consisted of: Tiny Ditto, Dinky Dow, Little Randy, Bobby Brown, Tammy Asher, Lee Nicholl, Jonny' Jesperson, and miscellaneous midgets. Despite the inspiring cheers from the audience, the Faculty somehow zoomed ahead with four touchdowns. The victorious team got the golden football trophy, and the defeated stu- dents headed back toward the lockers with the cheerleaders yelling, at the top of their lungs, "We still love you!" YOU CAN'T WIN 'EM ALL bv Sam Ditto and Dave l-locker After the 1966 Clairbourn-Berkeley Hall track meet, Clairbourn was our for blood, that, and the addition at Clair- bourn of a Ninth Grade, were partial causes of the Berkeley Hall loss, 31-22, in our first basketball game on Feb- ruary l8. Before the game, both teams were ad- dressed by Mr. Cheatham who reminded us that all right activity comes from God. Then the teams prepared themselves phys- ically. The Berkeley Hall team was com- posed of Tom Asher, captain, Randy Clement, Dave Hacker, Bob Brown, and Randy Craft. Mr. McGee took the helm as our coach. At two o'clock, Mr. Hoerner lour golden-throated announcer, scorer, and timerl began the first of the eight-minute quarters. Calling the fouls were Davie Ledbetter and Ken Lyon. Both teams had good ball control, but Clairbourn was more accurate. We played a five-man zone defense, while Clairbourn played a combination of man- to-man and zone, Their skill on free throws and field goals gave them a 14,0 lead at half-time, Mrs. O'Connor's groans could be heard clear across the campus. Cheerleaders from both teams lwe in blue and white and they in blue and goldl kept up spirit aluring the five-minute respite. When action resumed, Clairbourn was as hot as ever, pulling out for their final nine-point margin. At the end of the game, Tom Asher presented the perpetual trophy to the captain. But next year, watch out!!! We can't win 'em all, but neither can they. -Q-wr:-.-egg. GIRL WONDERS by Patty Reeder Crash! Bang! Pow! Batman? No, its the locker-room to the tune of "Roll call was three minutes ago" and a chorus of groans. As these lovely apparitions in sweat shirts hanging from their ears and two tennis shoes on one foot, race to games, onlookers are totally mystified. Those cannot be girls! No, in fact on the field they are not really-they become skillful, shrewd opponents furiously trying to make more points than the other team, At the beginning of the year we battled at basketball, Then we attempted volleyball, After Christmas came speedball in which we spent more time slamming the ball into our opponents than making goals. Finally baseball was played alter- nately with swimming in an icy pool. Who taught us the how, where, when, and what of these games? None other than Mrs. Cooling our all-around athletics coach. Captains and co-captains of these energetic athletes are Gale Ricketts and Patty Reeder of the Blues and Ellen Fishburn and Wendy Smith of the Whites. Spurred on with their encouragement both teams continued to struggle out to games with one purpose in their scheming, determined minds-win that pennant . . . Zap!! 1 .ls fb-,Q-r Q4 WOULD YOU BELIEVE? by Dave Hocker What's the difference between a winning team and a los- ing team? Would you believe Sam Ditto? How about Tom Asher? Bob Brown? Remick? Nicholl? Jesperson? Would you believe Dave Marshall? Well, anyway, when you put all the above together, it spells Victory. Not literally, but figura- tively. The Whites, with such persistent athletes as Randy Clement, Mike Dow, Dave l-locker, and Barry Brookins, tried, but couldn't quite edge out the Blues. The sports schedule for the boys this year was football, soccer, basketball, and baseball. The first captains were Mike Daw and Bob Brown. Mike repeated during soccer, and Dave Marshall coached the Blues. Next were Randy Clement and Roger Remick, and then Dave Hacker and Sam Ditto, The win- ning captains' names go on the plaque, which is presented by Mr. McGee, our coach and referee. Ken Lyon and Davie Ledbetter also lent a hand by officiating and instructing the Seventh Grade.
