Each daily act ot every individual on earth tends to tip the balance of human
progress Towards good or evil. 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.
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

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

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
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
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

this year. After discussing it they all drew

All in all these eighteen First Graders clay
is filled with hard work, learning, and fun.

Mrs. Lucinda Mae Linke
Lynn Stringfellow and Bob Brown
After a nationwide survey, it has been de-
cided that the Second Grade, under the super-
vision of Mrs. Linke, is the most likely to succeed
in life. 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
Some second graders said the prettiest ladies
in the world were Lady Godiva, and Mrs. Santa
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
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.
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,"
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

Mrs. Linsdell is learning with
leisure as she teaches the Fourth

This year the students are
learning both long and short

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
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.

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
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!

SEVENTH GRADE LITERATURE
Gregg Martin and Leonard Van de Wege
The Seventh Grade has made many new friends
this year among the "Who's Who." 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
A WONDERFUL DAY
I looked at the sky,
lt was blue, not gray,
And I said to myself,
"What a wonderful dayl"
l saw bright birds
High in a tree,
Singing a song
This proves to all
Even birds can say
They're grateful and glad
On a wonderful clay!

So now l'd be chuck full of shame
If our Cafe doesnt get rich with fame!
Mrs. Ruth Drake
The Seventh Grade began the fall term with a
field trip to the modern and beautiful Beverly Hills
Public Library, When we arrived it seemed as if
the library was asleep, The fountains were still,
and little if any motion could be seen inside. 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'
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
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.

Welcome those who came to call,
Tall, and staunch, and dignified -
A noble air is certified.

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 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
is Easter in crisp white dresses.

"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.
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
We now knew how the pioneers must have felt
and we recognized many of the hardships that they

High and Bill Fabian from Robert Fulton Jr. High in
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."
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.

JUNIOR HIGH SOCIETY
"Crunch, Munch, rattle". 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
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
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-

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

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!
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

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-
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!

This year has been full of new proiects. The electives
program is one. 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
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
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'
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?

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,
The Gospel According to Pre-School Teachers
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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."

THE CUTE LITTLE BLOND
Wendy Smith and Gale Ricketts
Why do the Ninth Grade Girls give up their
lunch period? 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.

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

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
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
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.

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.

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.
"Was it purple with blue and green or was it a combina-
tion of three different paisleys?" asked one member of the
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-
A GOOD WAY TO LEARN
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
A HIGH SCHOOL DEBATE?
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
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-
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.
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
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
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
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
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,
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
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.
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-
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.

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
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.

DAVIE LEDBETTER, DRIVER OF THE BOSS BUS
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
The second S is the most important-his love of Christian
Science. His goal in life is to be the best Christian Scientist

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
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

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

STARTING ON THE RlGl'lT FOOT
Carla Amparan and Dave Hacker
lt's a good feeling to know you're not
alone, The Berkeley Hall Barons were
anything but alone as they took the field
in preparation for their first intra-mural
football game against Rexford of Beverly
Hills. Behind the team were the spirited
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.
"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

After the 1966 Clairbourn-Berkeley

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-
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
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
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.
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!!
WOULD YOU BELIEVE?
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
