vv " S ' ' ' yvv H; - u n u BERLIN HIGH SCHOOL Berlin, Connecticut ADULESCENS CONSTITUIT Another stone on life’s rough road is passed. And now, far down the future’s broadening way, We see a ghostly shadow dim and gray. Between are pitfall, maelstrom, mountains vast; Beyond, the things we want in life are massed. The night is dark; there is no guiding ray. Nor will time wait for him who tarry may. To take his place, a thousand hurry past. Unlike the river destined to the sea, ’Tis optional to choose the path desired, And matters not from whence you came but gone. So choose to soar with eagles, high and free, Forgetting not to lift the helpless mired. Thus choose, oh youth, and happy, hurry on. ( borrowed ) — W.F.L DEDICATION MR. ROY FABIAN Words cannot express the sincere appreciation and gratitude that we, the class of 1956, wish to extend to our advisor, Mr. Fabian. The many, long, tedious hours of work you contributed to our yearbook, along with the countless other projects, made them all successful. We shall always be humbly indebted to you for the friendship and guidance which you so generously gave to us throughout our four years at Berlin High School. To you, Mr. Fabian, we dedicate this, our yearbook. 2 ADMINISTRATION b O l V I c ' for ,. ■c u ?

FRESHMAN REMINISCENCES At long last we have taken that big step — our first year at Berlin High School. Fears of the impending initiation loomed over us. But that all changed when the Seniors gave us a party that made us feel so much a part of Berlin High. In May we gave the Seniors a dance — saying farewell and thanks. SOPHOMORE REMINISCENCES Our second year of high school started in a brand-new school. It was a year when little else happened except our first big square dance which proved a tremendous success. It came to a quick close with plans for the following year as an upper classman. JUNIOR REMINISCENCES Third year and upper classmen at last — ! The class rings arrived and soon were adorning the fingers of the Junior girls and the necklaces of a few lucky Sophomore girls. Not having too much experience, preparation went forward on our first formal — " Hit Parade.” Originality has always been the by-word for our class. We proved it at our square dance when Dick Potash was voted most popular boy. His reward? — a chocolate pie in the face. The year ended in a twinkling, with the anticipation of our coming senior year with all it’s headaches and joys. SENIOR REMINISCENCES As we come to the close of our school days, we can truthfully say our Senior year has been the busiest and happiest of all. The year started off on the right foot when we initiated the freshmen to the best of our ability. It couldn’t have been too bad, because the Freshmen Reception had a great turn out. About a month later we found ourselves involved in preparation for the first square dance of the season. Towards the middle of the year we were hard at work on the yearbook with time out to plan for the Senior Play. Senior Ball time arrived without warning; but we had learned how to take such things in our stride. Then finally commencement week, Class Day, the Banquet and at long last, in cap and gown we marched down the aisle at our own graduation. And now the time has come for us to depart. However, we have not finished yet; we will go on to higher institutions or to other pursuits, to build on the foundation that we have received here. In building let us remember the words of the man who said, " Let every man take heed how he buildeth.” As we feel the friendly hand-shake, and receive the best wishes of those who have labored so patiently with us, may we be more determined than ever to show them our appreciation and gratitude by using what they have given us wisely and courageously. 23 Berry Jr ' ) 1 MOST ktlNt)C 4 ) V n athletic - ' 111 tUA D Bos M c CANN • k_;- • kV» . j MOST CHANGE!) -A •jOUORES KAMINSKI JEAN ZUK Dihugho JOKERS NANCY DORAN , . tev ; ; BOB v OSIK DUAA E JOHNSON " ' ' JULIET N 1 iVs Hts £? %- be sT ' vVk pA fjCER s SA ' AN J 4 HANES xlbT.t " sEjas — l " ! ft ' SUCCEED T% £ JIM hrenko jrpMo l JUDY ' .

The year, 1966 — the month, June — the place, CHARLIE SASIELA ' S gambling casino — better known as Champaigne Charlie’s Paladium. The first face you see is that of JIM HRENKO, human fly, scaling the walls of Chari i.- aonsnment. FLASH !! SA’AN HANES, mad scientist is using the Reno flats for her experimental work on the Backward " A” bomb. The question is, will it, or will it not work? An hour ago GALE CLARK, reporter for the " Reno Rattler” was sent to cover the story. Boom-m-m!! There ' s the explosion, folks. Boi-ing-ng-g-g! A tumble-weed seems to have been blown in from the desert. Why, it’s Gale Clark. She’s screaming, " It worked! It worked! " She comes to rest in front of Charlie’s joint . and is attended to by the parking lot attendant DON GARRISON. BOB KUCH- ARCZYK, local ambulance driver, wheels the victim to DICK COONEY ' S Flop House, where belle-hop DUANE JOHNSON takes charge of the unconscious " sob sister.” Deputy Sheriff, FLORENCE LORE, and city mayor, FRAN MEARZ, leave the dice tables just long enough to supervise this new emergency. They summon the only medical expert in the vicinity, JOHN HANSON, Medicine Man, who immediately administers a large dose of his original Oopakcik Vitalizer. The anguished screams of the injured reporter bring forth patrons from the JUNE CULVER Beauty Emporium and the DiMUGNO Tonsillorium. There is the town’s leading actress ELIZABETH EMERSON, her hair still in curlers and clips. Next to her, his face still in lather and clutching his latest book, " The Theory of Lady Bugs. vs. Man Bugs, " is that eminent scholar, LAWRENCE ZAROTNEY. The crowd that is gathering is made more orderly by the presence of State Policewoman ROSE ROOT. This also offers an oppor- tunity for JUDY PAULOZ to sell subscriptions to " S.O.S.” Magazine published by E. SACHETTI, R. OSIK, and G. SZILAGE. The reappearance of Gale causes the crowd to disperse and we see her heading, for obvious reasons, to M ALINA’S Dressy Shoppe and PERRETTA’s Pedaporium (shoe store). Now that the excitement has subsided we return to our original assignment, the coverage of the grand opening of the C. C. Paladium. We see congenial Champaigne Charlie welcoming those two Hollywood notables JOAN NAGY and GUS KARLSEN who are currently appearing in the new Fourth Dimension Extravanganza entitled " A Rocket Named Desire.” They will be the first celebrities to leave their footprints in the cement walk in front of the Paladium. Preparing the sidewalk is the local masoner and divorce consultant BILL DUNN. Standing near him is the club’s bouncer BOB WELZ. Oh-oh something appears to be going wrong, thev are unable to get their feet out of the cement. We now switch you to the kitchen of the casino. This is " Scullery SALLY KINCAID " in the kitchen — Supervising the kitchen is the international gourmet and cooking expert, HENRY MORA. He is examining the technique of that famous Maine potato peeler ANITA FOREMAN. Slaving over the stove crammed with bread and omelettes we find LYN TOHNSON. Entering the kitchen with a load of anti-hangover moo-juice is CAROL REYNOLDS, followed bv JUDY PETOW with a hind. .quarter from her private herd of Purple Angus steers. Delivering the rattlesnake meat from his Reptile Ranch is BOB ZIPADELLI. What is happening at the oven? The bread is out of control — Due to the impending danger, we switch you back to the gambling room. The casino of the Paladium is now a hub-hub of activitv. The croupiers of the various games of chance are JOE DEVIVO, cards; FRAN TOPA, dice; and RONALD KUHNLY, roulette. Betting quite heavily at the dice table is uranium mine owner WILLIAM KLEINSCHMIDT, who this evening is escorting the internationally known play-girl and race-horse owner, THELMA DAVIS. Assisting him in placing his bets is the noted female mathematician JEAN ZUK. At DeVivo ' s table we see FRAN RIO, that paragon of children ' s virtues and writer of the answer to " Mother Goose Rhymes” — " Father’s Goose is Cooked.” Betting the number zero is PAUL " Pauncho " HENRIQUES, Mexican jumping bean grower. He is being encouraged by " Hackie JACKIE” DAIGLE, the American Women’s Golf Champion. Trying to sell them a cigar-making " do-it-yourself kit” is cigarette girl CAROL CZERWINSKI. Word has just been received from state officials that PAT WARD who is being investigated regarding irregularities in her mail-order Lonely Hearts Club is in town. Close on her trail is F.B.I. under-cover woman IRENE AUBIN and her gun carrier ROBERTA STURTEVANT. Story has it they are heading for the Paladium. Yes, here they come. Charlie has been told of their arrival, but he is in conference with pin-ball machine saleswoman, NANCY DORAN. He has appointed his official hostess LORETTA LENOIS to greet them. Bartender, JEAN PERKINS, rushes the refresh- ments to the newly arrived guests just as the curtain is pulled by BOB VERONESI for the floor show. The lights dim — we see the band members stumble into place. Among the familiar faces are DICK POTASH, the second Bobby Hackett, WALT LUND, saxophonist, MARVA SLEPSKI on the musical glasses, MARY ANN BURRELL on the ukulele and JANICE TREECE on the saw. The first selection sounds like an interpretation of Mayrzy Dotz with PHYLLIS ROMEGIALLI, torch singer, taking the vocal. As the evening progresses splendidly so does the entertainment with a most unusual rendition of Eartha Kitt and Fats Domino by BARBARA LARSON and BOB JOHNSON. Mistress of ceremonies ELLI PETERSON is now announcing the dance routine of the chorus line with solos by NANCY DUTKIEWICZ and BOB ALBERT. A list of the chorus members has just been handed to us. Many well known names are present: DELORES KAMINSKI, MARY ANN MOGULISKI and WALLY LUNDSTROM. Here, too, credit must be given to STAN BAKAJ for his magnificent, different wardrobing work. The show is drawing to a close, but before it does one last personal appearance, the crown holders, Miss America — BE A HILTPOLD and muscle-man Mr. Universe — LEE GRANT. But what’s this? There appears to be some sort of trouble brewing in the street. We switch you to RON SEABURG on the outside. What started as a friendly conversation has turned into a brawl between pro- football star BOB McCANN, and the assistant to the assistant football coach EDNA LAISCELL. We can’t seem to get close enough to determine the cause of this dispute. ANN LUBY local " brawl disperser” is trying her best to quiet down the hassle with little success. JAN THORAN, visiting African missionary nurse, is here with Dr. BETTY KUNDE, personal physician to Albert Schwietzer. Nurse Thoran is lugging Dr. Kunde’s big green bag behind her in case of any emergency. Bouncer Welz has just come through the swinging doors of the Paladium with a club and the fight has been stopped. Energetic and enthusiastic patrons of Charlie’s are clearing the streets while at the same time the vice squad is closing Champaigne Charlie’s Paladium — forever — That’s all for tonight, folks. We now switch you back to the studio and SANDY ZIEL, your host for this year. This is Blushing Sandy Ziel. Remember, folks, you never can go wrong with a Rold’s-67. It’s the self-steering that counts. When the roll is called up yonder — " YOU WILL BE THERE!

The members are selected on the basis of leadership, character, and service. The Club serves the faculty, the student body, the school, and the community. Among the projects for this year are helping the bus-drivers supervise the kindergarten children riding the school buses, occupying traffic posts during fire drills, and operating the KC-donated scoreboard during football and baseball seasons. The Key Club sponsored inter-school dances and presented an award to the outstanding Industrial Arts student in the Senior Class. DEBATE CLUB The Debate Club is a comparatively recent addi- tion to the extra-curricular activities of the school. Members of the team must be able to clearly present and substantiate useful arguments for or against a variety of subjects. Upon several occasions they were asked to compete with other schools and organiza- tions. G. Karlsen J. Hrenko R. Hall M. Bandarutis M. Dondes C.

This year, however, there was a little switch in procedure — the drive was held during the month of Novem- ber rather than the usual February. Though not the highest amount of returns, Berlin made a good showing with $6758. The salesmen with over $10 in sales were entertained at a jamboree, and the students selling a sizable amount were treated to a trip to " Cinerama” and a hockey game in New York in February and a baseball game during the spring.

Combining the hard, never-say-die run- ning of Seniors Rio, McCann, DiMugno and Johnson and the fine punting of Eddie Ma- guda, the Redcoats were able to garner an undefeated season, marred only by the tie game with Farmington. Berlin’s great record qualified it to be singled out for top honors by the CIAC Class " S” Committee. The jarring defensive line play of Seniors Coo- ney, Potash, Bakaj, and Albert was instru- mental in the very low points-scored-against- Berlin average.

VARSITY Displaying a well-balanced attack and strengthened by an exceptionally strong bench, Berlin moved to a ten-win and six-loss record. High scoring honors for the in- dividual games were shared by each of the starting five. Although all this would add up normally to a successful season, the C.I.A.C. approved a new set of rules for the 1956 tourney, which involved a complicated point system, and as a result, Berlin was not one of the sixteen qualifying teams. However, the school is proud of its spirited Redcoats and their coaches.

Attempting to duplicate the season of 1955 — during which time the Redcoats won the unofficial Class " S” championship and was runner-up in the State tourney compe- tition — the Berlin nine of 1956 swung into action against some of the top Class " S” teams in the State. Although lacking in depth in the pitching department, the Berlin nine came through with fine fielding plays and timely hitting at the plate to produce a thrilling season.
