Of the past we can be sure- The present we may affirm, ln the future we must really strive To make the best of our short term Of life. What lies before us will drive Us on in times of strife to attain The ease and comforts that should survive For our posterity. But think not of the present, For what is done is done. Take heed for the future and steadily increase Yourself. in truth and wisdom. Look back as the years cease, And with steady keel guide your thoughts And actions on a course leading to peace.

CLASS HISTORY SEPTEMBER, 1950 Remember the day when we, as freshmen, took our places at E.H.H.S? We were iust beginning our trip into the future and were so anxious to make a good start. Dudley Harrison, Angelina Ianotti, Henry Heffernan, Dottie Johnson, Nick Vauiso, Dave Watrous and Tommy Coleman were chosen to make our views known in Student Council. Perhaps the most significant organization we could belong to was the Junior National Society. Achieving recognition in this group were Dave Watrous, Phyllis Gamache, Frances McTrottes, George Wagner, Rochelle Balzano, Marion Parillo, Billy Curtiss, Dorothy Kingsford, Helen Kelsey, Adrienne Elliot, Carol Dolan, Linda Fair, Barbara Blake, Francis Zampiello, Nancy Freeman, and Terry Parlato. Three other organizations, F.H.A., Art Club, and the Modern Language Club claimed mem- bers from our class. Then came class elections. Tom Bowden was chosen to lead us as president with Nancy Freeman assisting him as vice-president. Theresa Parlato served as secretary and Richard Johnson handled our funds. When spring came, we made ready for our first class dance, the Freshman Frolic, Glenda Wilson and Gilly Gaffney were elected co-chairmen, and with them as mana- gers the dance was a big success. With June came the end of our first year in high school. lt had been a thrilling experience. Surely we were able to say that our first year at E.H.H.S. was a happy one that we would never forget. SEPTEMBER 1951 Our freshman year had flown by, and after vacation we entered school as sopho- mores. This year, too, was swift in passing. The class was led by George Wagner. Tommy Coleman served as vice-president, Terry Parlato was secretary and Dotti Anastasia, treasurer. In the fall Nick Vauiso, John Esposito, Dan Mautte, Dom Pettinicchi, Gabe Moni- co and Roger l.exza were playing on the football team. During the winter Tony Massari, Chubby Esposito, Henry Heffernan, Tom Bowden and Bob Davison were busy with the basketball team. Our boys were not the only ones in the limelight. Marion Parillo, Glenda Wilson and Adrienne Elliott were chosen to be cheerleaders. They cheered our team on to many victories. The Varsity Show was a success that year, as always. Our class was well represented with Lillian Thomas, Dotti Anastasio, Weezie Thomas, Alice Matti and Dave Watrous turning in wonderful performances. Spring came, and with it came the baseball season. Dan Mautte, Dom Pettinicchi, Tony Masarri, and Richie Mizger helped the upperclassmen on the baseball diamond. The year quickly came to an end, but first, our Sophomore Hop took place. lt was a huge success in every way. This dance was, of course, our biggest social event of the year with Malvina Montgomery and Richie Mizger, co-chairmen There was very little time left now. We made plans for our class picnic. It was held at beautiful Ocean Beach in New London. Naturally many of us attended this lively affair and had a wonderful time. Our sophomore year had come and gone. We learned many new things while we were growing older. Yes, we were older now, and would return to school in the fall as eager iuniors. SEPTEMBER T952 4 This year we entered the halls of East Haven High School as upperclassmen. Leading the class were Tommy Bowden, President, David Watrous, Vice-President, Rochelle Balzano, Secretary, and Dotti Anastasio, Treasurer. The football team again won the Housatonic League with such veterans as Danny Mautte, Charles Cianelli, Ronny Lecxa, Gabe Monaco, Dom Pettinicchi, Nick Vauiso, Victor St. John, Tom Ranfone, Red O'Mara, and Al Acompora. The all-stars on the Varsity Basketball Team were Red O'Mara, Tony Massari and Tom Bowden. The JV's claimed Bob Davidson and Henry Heffernan. The strike-happy boys on the bowling team were Tom Ranfone, George Bassing and Paul McNally. The flying fish were Dick Maher, Dave Watrous, Bill Clapp, Dick Angus, and Gabe Monaco. Cheering the team to victories were Terry Parlato, Joan Backman, Glenda Wilson, Adrienne Elliot, Mary Ann Sabine and Marion Parillo. In May we held our very exciting Junior Prom with "Coronation" as the theme. The committee co-chairmen were Terry Parlato and Nick Vauiso, with a very enthusi- astic committee assisting. Members of the Pep Club were Dotti Anastasia, Barbara Monaco, Pat Boughton, Rochelle Balzano, Elaine Malinowski, Louise Thomas and Eleanor Paieski. The junior class had a maiority of members in the Dialectic Society, including Dotti Anastasia, George Wagner, Nancy Watkins, Frances McTrottes, .Nancy Free- man, Francis Zampiello, Bob Talbot, Al Acampora and Leroy Nuhn. A remarkable iob was done by Drama Workshop with such artists as Elaine Malinowski, Louise Thomas and Eleanor Paieski. Nancy Watkins, Nancy Freeman, Ann Criscuola, Barbara Monaco, Helen Kelsey, and Joan Backman comprised the Art Club, which held a very successful Barnyard Brawl. On the intellectual side, the Modern Language Club had such linguists as Frances McTrottes, Francis Zampiello, Dottie Kingsford, Phyllis Gamache, Ilene Skrinski, Dick Angus, Ray Luyckx, Dick Kowaleski, and Bob Talbot. The Future Homemakers of America found such seamstresses as Joan Keegan, Elaine Malinowski, Mary Lou McLeese, Donas McKenna, Glenda Wilson, Mary Ann Sabine and Ann Criscola. Hard work and much thought was put into our school paper, "The Comet". Dot Anastasio, Bev McLeese and Barbara Monaco were seen editing, while on the business end were Elaine Malinowski, Eleanor Paieske, Joan Keegan, Dottie Johnson, Mary Ann Sabine, Dottie Kingsforcl, Dottie Scharf, Ann Criscola, Donas McKenna, Mary Lou McLeese, and Judy Campbell. The Student Council claimed such leaders as Terry Parlato, Dottie Scharf, Jose- phine Norden, Angelina Ianotti, Tom Coleman, Alice Mattie, Bev McLeese, George Wagner, Paul Lasko, Tom Bowden and Bob Talbot. The American Legion announced in May that Tom Bowden, George Wagner, Dave Watrous, Red O'Mara, Bill Curtiss and Tony Masarri had been chosen as delegates to Nutmeg Boy's State, and Terry Parlato and Dottie Kingsford as delegates to Laurel Girl's Stu-e, where for one week a course in Government was held at the University of Connecticut. Last, but by no means least, George Wagner, Dotti Anastasio and Joan Backman were inducted into the National Honor Society. We enioyed a thoroughly successful year as iuniors and were hopefully looking forward to our senior year. SEPTEMBER 1953 Our senior year got off to a good start. Now WE were the important members of the school. We received expert guidance from our advisors, Miss Rocco and Mr. Frawley, our principal, Mr. Garvin, and our vice-principal, Mr. Murray. We were very fortunate to have the class leadership entrusted to George Wagner as president, David Watrous as vice-president, Dotti Anastasio as secretary, and Paul Lasko as treasurer. The "Comet" was never better. Edited each month by a different person, it covered a large variety of topics and kept us in touch with the latest high school news. In March the ever popular Shamrock Cotillion, sponsored by the paper, was held. The unique feature of this dance was that the girls asked the boys. ln October the girls gave a large welcome reception for Miss Keefe, our new dean. Under her direction the Pioneer staff was organized and the book soon under way. Theresa Parlato was chosen Editor with Francis Zampiello, Associate Editor, Barbara Blake, Art Editor, Paul Lasko, Business Manager, Dorothy Johnson, Layout Editor, and John Esposito, Sports Editor. We excelled in athletics with Coach Frank Crisafi. The football team had one of its best years under Dom Pettinicchi and Dom Mautte. The "New Haven Register" publicized Dom as one of the best players of the week for the New Haven area. He also received the Savitt Sportsmanship Award for being an outstanding player. This season ended with a splendid Football Formal at which Glenda Wilson was chosen queen. The basketball team had an excellent season with Tony Massari as captain. The Yellow Jackets were rated the best team in Class M schools of Connecticut. The bowling, swimming, and baseball teams maintained outstanding records, too. The enthusiastic support of the cheerleaders under Glenda Wilson, Adrienne Elliott and Marion Parillo, and the Pep Club under Dotti Anastasio and Louise Thomas, contributed largely to the success of the teams. One highlight of the year was the addition of new members to the National Honor Society. The following seniors were inducted: Adrienne Elliott, Francis Zam- piello, David Watrous, Phyllis Gamache, Dorothy Kingsford, Frances McTrottes, Doro- thy Johnson, Thomas Bowden, Anthony Massari, Teresa Parlato. Their officers were George Wagner, Joan Backman and Dotti Anastasio. The Student Council was efficiently run by George Wagner, president, Dave Watrous, vice-president, Joan Backman, secretary, and Lillian Thomas, treasurer. The Traffic Squad Officers, with their blue and gold badges plainly in view of all who passed, stood straight throughout the halls. Tony Masarri, Dotti Johnson and Nancy Watkins gave their leadership to this organization. There were several more extra-curricular clubs to suit the interests of everyone, such as the F.H.A., Art Club, Spanish Club, and Dialectic Society. A splendid band was organized by Mr. Myron Cohen, and many new instruments were bought with money collected from a fund drive held early in the fall. Several assemblies were given by this group, much to the pleasure of all. The Varsity Show under the supervision of Miss Yota Bouzoucos gave students the opportunity of demonstrating their talents, of which East Haven may well be proud. This year, Theresa Parlato was elected the D.A.R. girl of East Haven High. Terry was one of the most active girls in the senior class, putting untold effort into all phases of high school life. The Senior Dance was held on the tenth of April with the theme, "April in Paris," leaving many a senior misty-eyed at the prospect of their last class dance. Finally June seventeenth arrived. It was graduation night . . . a new life awaited us. We looked to the future, eager to meet the challenge of the adult world. The doors of opportunity and success in new fields lay open before us.

Signed:- THE CLASS WILL COMMITTEE Tony scores again "Watch that manl' PROPHECY ANNOUNCER: It is now the year 1986. Fifty years have passed since the erection of the East Haven High School. Members of the graduating class of 1954 have re- turned to their Alma Mater for the Golden Jubilee to celebrate this happy occasion. SETTING: The Dean's Office at East Haven High School. In the background is a large calendar for the month of June, 1986. ln the foreground is a desk around which is placed several chairs. Three women enter talking. They are Dorothy Scharf, the Dean of Women: Joan Poirier, the Typing Teacher, and Glenda Wilson, the ibrarian. JOAN: My, what a grand celebration that was! Think of it, 50 years ago this school was erected on a small lot on Tyler Street. Now it extends all the way to Hem- ingway and Dodge Avenues. DOROTHY: Yes, who would ever think such a thing like this could be accomplished, least of all us, when we graduated from here in 1954. GLENDA: And look at all the improvements that have been added to keep up with the changing times: a landing platform on the roof for helicopters and the school's iet busses, as well as those escalators that we used to ioke about when we were pupils ourselves. DOROTHY: Wasn't the program last night wonderful with that All-Girl Band directed by Ken Lord from Tommy Coleman's College for Girls? JOAN: Lillian Thomas' song was beautifully done, especially with the backing of the Song Birds Quartet composed of George Bassing, Bob Burwell, Red O'Mara, and Dom Pettinicchi. GLENDA: Everyone was surprised to see Betsy Cochran and Dottie Johnson back from their European tour. Dottie told me that they canceled much of their tour so they could get back to play their famous piano cluet for us. JOAN: Did you see the look on George Wagner's face when he heard that Johnny Olson is the Superintendent of Schools? DOROTHY: Didn't you realize that George hasn't been in contact with us in many years? He told me that he is an explorer in outer space. GLENDA: Did you know that Phyllis Norden is married and living in Greenland, and that Francis Zampiello is a famous surgeon working over in Siam? DOROTHY: Is that right? Time really flies. Why, it seems that just yesterday we were all students in this school. JOAN: Who would ever have dreamed that Terry Parlato would turn out to be a Math teacher, or that Bob Beauton would be a lecturer on tropical diseases. GLENDA: I was talking to Joan Backman last night. She and Nancy Watkins are the originators of those new flourescent bathing suits. No wonder they have been selling like hotcakes! DOROTHY: Eleanor Clouse, Marion Parillo, and Betty Carbone have gone on an - African Safari. Can you imagine them searching around Africa for lions and tigers? JOAN: I heard that Tommy Bowden and Dick Ayre are ADRIENNE: Calls through the Vidioscope la large screen in the wall, similiar to our televisionj I've just received a letter from Elaine Malinowski. l'Il be right up to read it to you. DOROTHY: Thirty-two years ago, who would have thought we could have such a thing as Vidioscope. Remember that old PA system? JOAN: I hear that Al Acampora and Dick Angus are making millions with this invention of theirs. Our singing iuniors. C151 mqgnifiquel Planning the Football Formal A proud fatherl 'i "Mirror, mirror, on tho wall" The big wheels. HWQAEEZHJ ' S1L ESVBZIV' I "Sit up straight, girls!" "Tuck your head!" Mrs. Gelinas to the rescue! Q , . 1 i 114 , ,Y Wi in ng 1, 'V I . f ' .lg We all scream for ice cream. GLENDA: Oh, by the way, did you know that Fran McTrottas, Nancy Freeman, and Phylis Gamache were arrested for speeding? JOAN: Oh no, really! GLENDA: Ann Raschke and Barbara Monaco, Spacepatrollers, caught them over on the Mcleese Sister Skyway last week. DOROTHY: And racing in Jetmobiles no less! They should know better. Remember those hot rods that Paul McNally, Jackie Henry, Mike Bonwill and Don Frawley used to zoom around in? Well, now they are working in the Ranfone Brothers Helicopter Corporation. ADRIENNE: fpanting madly, runs in bursting with news about the letter she just received.J It's from Elaine Malinowski. Listen to what she has to say. "I'm very sorry that I could not come to the reunion, but I'm very excited over my new promotion. As you know, I am working in Dick Maher's Food Pill Plant, and iust yesterday I was promoted to be private secretary to the President, Danny Mautte. I was talk- ing to Barbara Blake last Tuesday. She is still at the Bill Curtiss Audioscope Com- pany. Bill Tolento came in the other day, and told me all about the raceway that he and George Carlson own. It seems that Dudley Harrison is the Business Man- ager, and they iust opened a new season last month. Some of the well known racers were Dom Scalese, Vic St. John, Frank Esposito, and Frank DeFlippo. He also said that Mary Ann Sabine, Josephine Norden, Louise Thomas, and Dot Anastasio are making quite a name for themselves in the women's races. Dottie won again last week and is said to be a strong contender for the championship in September. Tomorrow I plan to have dinner with Donas McKenna. Remember her? She is now a very famous dress designer for Nick Vauiso Frocks, Inc. Lately she, along with Pat Boughton and Marie DeSerio, have been instructing classes at Leroy Nuhn's Dress Academy. Well, I guess that's about all for now. Why not write me soon and tell me about the celebration?" GLENDA: lsn't it wonderful to hear about all our old friends again? JOAN: Ha, Ha, you know I was just thinking. Remember how Dick Johnson used to skip school so much? Who would ever think he would become the Truant Officer, or that Rochelle Balzano would be the School Nurse. GLENDA: Did you know that Gilly Gaffney is the principal of the new school out in Branford? Fran Degnall is his secretary. DOROTHY: What traitors! I'm glad some of us came back to East Haven to teach. ADRIENNE: Some of us! Did you ever stop to realize how many of our classmates teach here. Johnny Esposito is the principal, Charlie Cicarelli is the football coach, and Eleanor Paieski is head of the Commercial Department. DOROTHY: Yes I know, Bob Davison is teaching Problems of Democracy, and Barbara Thomas is the Homemaking instructor. GLENDA: Why iust look at our Board of Education! Ed Aucaigne, Angie Marenna, Alice Mattie, Dottie Johns, Sal Bova, and Ann Onofrio. Dorothy Kingsford is the Business Manager. JOAN: My how times do change. A few years ago, it seems, Tommy LaFontaine disliked even English, but now he is head of the Foreign Language Department. Ann Cris- cola is the English teacher, while Joe Heller and Ronnie Kaiser are in charge of the Visual Aids Dept. I never would have guessed it. GLENDA: With Jimmy Cunningham as baseball coach: Casmir Jasudewich, basketball coach: Ray Luyckx, swimming: and Carl Rademacher, the bowling instructor, the boys are really lucky. lt could explode, you know. These are cowboys? --5 ADRIENNE: I wonder if Linda Fair who is the Volleyball director: Ilene Skrinski, bowling coach: Joan Keegan, swimming coach, Angie Ianotti, baseball director, and Winnie Venus, the basketball coach, can accomplish what our Gym teacher did. Good luck to them. DOROTHY: The kids today are fortunate. I would have loved to have Bill Clapp as my Dramatics teacher, or Terry Lemiux as my music teacher. JOHN ESPOSITO: lcomes rushing in with today's East Haven Daily Newspaperi Hey, just look at these headlines! CHARLES CIANELLI COMPLETES CHANNEL SWIM. You remember him, don't you? JOAN, DOROTHY, GLENDA, ADRIENNE: Gump up quicklyj Quick! Let us see it! JOHN: All right then, sit down and listen. "Charlie Cianelli has iust completed the difficult task of swimming the treacherous English Channel in the record time of 8 hours, 52'A minutes. Mr. Cianelli is formerly from East Haven, Conn. and is coached by two former classmates, Gabe Monaco and Richard Mizger." JOAN: Isn't that wonderfull DOROTHY: Look over here. There's a picture of Jean Batick. Why, she won the Miss America contest in Atlantic City! ADRIENNE: And over here is a picture of a new restaurant opening today out on Route fl. It's to be managed by Paul Lasko and Henry Heffernan. lsn't it modern look- ing with that suspended roof garden? GLENDA: Here is an article about the 10 Best Dressed Women. Dolores Esposito, Julie Hall, and Camille DeMusis are on the top of the list. I've heard that Julie is married to the ambassador to Spain. DOROTHY: Well, what do you know! Angie Massaro won SlO0,000 on a television give- away program last night. Buddy Keegan was the Master of Ceremonies for the sponsor, Barbara Raccio's Super Rice Krispies. JOAN: Look at all the advertisements. Here is one for Sal Vergati's Jewelry Shop, and another for Bob Talbot's Jetmobile Show Rooms out in Foxon. ADRIENNE: Tony Massari, the world famous architect, is planning to build a new movie house for the owner, Roger Lecza. JOHN: Well girls, don't get so excited. I've found an article about Carol Dolan. She iust won a Hollywood movie contract at the Donald Boschen Studios. GLENDA: Did you know that Dave Watrous and Dick Kowlaski are senators? They are going to run for the second term in office in the fall. lthe paper is put away and they resume talkingj JOHN: Has anyone heard about the accident out at the airport? Nelson Thomas and Dean Hewes were trying out some new invention of theirs, and crashed. Imagine thinking they could fly an airplane without propellers. DOROTHY: The papers said that Paul Wisminiti, the ambulance driver, really tore up the roads to get them to the hospital in time. Bob Carr, the famous surgeon, was supposed to operate today. JOAN: I wonder if Grace Pitts, Nancy Cucurello, Audrey Peckham, or Helen Kelsey were among the nurses. I was talking to Helen the other day, and she told me that they were working up at the hospital together. ADRIENNE: Just stop and think, 32 years have gone by since we graduated. After see- ing and hearing about all our old classmates, I wonder how many of them will be here to enioy the 100th anniversary celebration in 2036. On the whole our predictions were pretty accurate. I think the members of our class have been unusually successful. HO! Rods uwuyl Lunch, at last! The vunnahsl K ' 0' Qowuwfmu 7953 'uikln appz .VW X X1 'E xv K ff W?
