To perpetuate in our hearts the many pleasant memories
of happy high school days, this 1955 ECHO, edition 64, is
published, that as the years roll on We may, through the
ECHO, return to dear old E. H. S. and recall and relive the
days that used to be.
This year--1955 -has been a Wonderful year. We
of the ECHO staff have tried to capture and preserve in
words and pictures on the following pages as much as We
High School 1955
The Story of Easthampton Q ,Qui Wwe!
We should like you to meet f and who
represent the school spirit at E. H. S. and Whom We have
employed to take you on a tour of the 1954-1955 school
year. Follow them closely and you will hear the echoes
of laughter, gay and carefree, resounding through the halls
of E. H. S., echoes of voices, not so merry, responding in
the classrooms, echoes of our failures and successes, echoes
of our classmates at Work and at play in Easthampton

William A. Dexter
Stanley Popielarczyk, Chairman
William Lossone, Secretary
The Class of 1955 will soon terminate its
formal education in the Public Schools of
Easthampton. For most of you graduation
means the completion of a session of work,
play and study. You should be looking
forward to opportunities for further achieve-
ment and more worthy self-expression. You
have, during the past four years, made new
friendships, cultivated new tastes and ac-
quired fresh visions of truth. With these
tools you face the opportunities of a glorious
age. It is your pathway into which you
must enter. Whether this glorious age is
made or marred will depend on habits
which you have acquired in the home,
church, and school. In addition to the
education you have attained in school, take
into the future friendship, co-operation and
service, and your glorious age will be
transformed from a vision to a reality.
Miss Bertha Voigt
Secretary to the szgberintendent
And one from our Principal ..
'Tis education forms the common mind:
just as the twig is bent the tree's inclined.
And so as the members of the Class of 1955
graduate into the activities and the problems
of the outside world, I sincerely hope that
they will retain some of the wisdom and
wholesome character that we have tried to
formulate in them during their high school
Only in this way can they enjoy the happiness
and security of a life well lived and bring to
a troubled world the blessings of peace and
l Miss Ethel Voigt
Howell K. Thayer
To the Faculty
YVC, the Class of 1955, wish to express our sincerest appreciation to
the faculty for their advice and assistance throughout the past four
years. We are especially grateful to them for all the time they have so
kindly contributed to help make our various undertakings successful.
Aided by their understanding guidance and tireless efforts, we have
happily achieved our goal, and now realize the important part our
teachers have played in this achievement. It is our hope that some
day we may make our beloved E. H. S. and its loyal faculty proud
to have had the Class of l955.

We, the Class of 1955, dedicate this page in loving memory to Robert Bilski
who was with us for our Hrst three years in Easthampton High School. Quiet
and reserved, Robert was a faithful friend and loyal classmate, ever ready in
his modest way to participate in school and class activities. We recall his
helpful cooperation as a member of Student Council, his active work on
committees for social affairs, and his good performance as a trumpet player
in our band.
A classmate who reflected credit on his home and his school, Robert will
always be remembered as one whom we were glad to have in our midst.

ECHOES OF THE PAST
Hark-do you hear it? Listen intently--in the distance a
faint murmur, a sott echo, the voice of our freshman year, awakens
our memories. As it becomes more distinct, we envision a time
when we were eighty-seven bewildered, confused students. Long
will we remember our first year, when we were ofiicially initiated
into the school student body, honored by the Freshman Reception.
With the aid of our advisor, Miss Lee, we ventured upon our
Hrst big project, the Freshman-Sophomore Party. To aid us to
find our way in the sea of confusion we elected as class officers:
president, James Trudeau, vice-president, Edward Cabana, secre-
tary Gayle Sheldon, and treasurer, Marilyn Graham. Although
we sorrowfully bade the seniors goodbye at their graduation, we
were joyful that Frances Chmura had received the Urban-Fleming
Memorial Prize for outstanding work in General Science.
Amid the confusion of voices, we now hear another echo, growing
more clearly and steadily, still carrying us back to the past. Now
it echoes the return of eighty-one students who have progressed to
the second year of higher education, one year closer to the goal.
Our class president was Joyce Dennis 5 vice-president, james
Trudeau, secretary, Constance Kulon, treasurer Helen Zielenski.
Guided by Miss Fleming, we were active participants in school
activities. Many of us were important members of clubs, others
were gaining recognition in sports. Our Sophomore Dance was a
gala affair. This sophomore year proved to be one filled to
capacity with memorable events.
The vociferous echo of our junior year reminds us that sixty-
seven confident scholars returned for the acquiring of more
knowledge. Echoes of other environments had induced some of
our students to give up the search for studies. To help our advisor,
Miss Burke, and our class, we elected as our president Maryann
Niemiec, vice-president, Mary Weidhaas, secretary, Nancy Sena,
treasurer, Earl Lizotte. Richard Beebe, James Trudeau, and Earl
Lizotte had the privilege of attending Boys State, while Marilyn
Graham was our delegate to Girls State. Ruth Mesh was chosen
to serve in the governor's escort at the Eastern States Exposition.
At the 1954 graduation two of our members received prizes: Earl
Lizotte, the Susan M. Mullaly Prize in French, and Ruth Mesh,
the History Award offered by the International Relations Com-
mittee of the Woman's Club.
A reverberating sound announces that we are seniors, engaged
in a year overflowing with exciting happenings. In September 1954
we elected these leaders: president, james Trudeau 5 vice-president,
Edward Popielarczykg secretary, Nancy Sena, and treasurer,
Carolyn Godaire. To our advisor, Mr. Reed, we owe many
thanks for his patience and guidance.
September-We began raising money for our Washington trip
by selling rest period refreshments to hungry students.
October- Seniors rang doorbells! Frances Chmura was business
manager of the magazine sales campaign. Captains for Curtis
Company were Maryann Niemiec, Richard Beebe, and Elizabeth
Ramsey. Captains for Collier Company were Thelma Pendergast,
Donald Molloy, and Cynthia Thouin.
November- We dubiously undertook a completely new project,
with favorable results for our treasury, we sold Christmas trees.
or P 1 J X

Our boys, with that well-groomed look and our girls, poised and
charming, proudly posed for their pictures for The ECHO.
December-All of our efforts were put into the Senior Dance,
an appropriately festive party for the Christmas season.
January-One big sigh of relief was heard as our thousand
J, word themes were finally handed in.
February -- "Holy Cow" echoed through the halls in preparation
for the Senior Play, "Meet Corliss Archer." Marilyn Graham was
selected as D. A. R. Pilgrim.
March-A general stir of excitement between political parties
was underway as each candidate tried his best to be a winner.

May-Oh! the bustle of the nearing graduation, the gliding
of dancers at the Junior-Senior Prom 5 fellows stiff in their tuxedos,
girls beautiful in their gowns.
June-So happy, yet so sad! So very much to do: meetings,
rehearsals, class night, and finally, graduation-the long-awaited
achievement of our goal.
As we now leave the halls and classrooms of Easthampton High
School, we hear, as we shall always hear, the echoing memories
of four wonderful years.
April-A new experience: we were able actually to view our
capitol at Washington, D. C. The Washington trip will always
be one of the permanent pictures in our gallery of memories.

The Senior Play is over, but the "holy
cow" of Dexter, fRichard Beebej lingers on.
The play, directed by Principal Howell K.
Thayer, was "Meet Corliss Archern, adapted
from the radio and television series. The
mischievous Corliss, played by Joyce Dennis,
succeeded in leading her parents, Earl Lizotte
and Sandra Damon, around by the nose,
while completely bewildering Aunt Agnes,
Luanne Bergmann. Maid Louise, Betsy
Ramsey, was wise to Corliss and her antics,
as was friend Mildred, Pauline Boulanger.
The rest of the cast included Gayle Sheldon
and Donald Molloy as Dexter's parents,
Donald Cykowski and Cynthia Thouin as
doctor and nurse, .and Nancy Sena, as Betty.
Each one became involved in the topsy-turvy
plots of Corliss which provided an evening
of enjoyable entertainment. for everyone.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
To lead our class of ninety-nine freshmen we elected as class oflicers in 1952:
President, Alice Gerykg vice-president, John Brothers, secretary, Corinne St. Marting
treasurer, Nancy Mackie. Our class advisor was Mr. Reed. Joyce McNamara and
James Stone ably represented us in Student Council. We participated in numerous
extra-curricular activities, and many of us were on the first and second honor

Mackie received the Helena C. Evans Art Award.
Guided by Miss Lee, we chose the following Sophomore Class officers: presi-
dent, James Stone 3 vice-president, Richard Fappianog secretary, Theresa Ceberek,
and treasurer, Thomas LaPlante. Donna Mitchell, Joanne Gendreau, Bruce Craig,
and James Stone were elected by the class to represent us in Student Council.
Again we took part in' many school events, including Good Government Day
activities. Although a few of us slipped academically, we still had an honor roll
record to be proud of. We indeed enjoyed our sophomore year.
Our junior year has been crammed full of exciting events. Now at the tiller we
find Thomas LaPlante as president 5 James Stone, vice-president, Joanne Gendreau,
secretary, Patricia Tourville, treasurer. To Mr. Lcwis was given the task of advising
us, while Donna Mitchell, Gail Wolfram, Theresa Ceberek, David Jayes, Bruce
Craig, and Robert Skrocki spoke for us in Student Council. On Junior Pro Merito
we had the impressive number of twenty-one members. Again we participated
actively in nearly every function at E. H. S. Bruce Craig, Chester Kania and Frank
Skrzyniarz were chosen as Boys' State delegates with Thomas LaPlante as alternate.
We were proud to be represented by Nancy Mackie in the district and regional
American Legion Oratorical Contest and at State Good Government Day in Boston.
After a wonderful junior year, we look forward with great anticipation to
the all-important senior year.

Vice-President: Robert Craig Treasurer: Charles Patterson
Advixor: Mr. Howard Graham
SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
Time flies, we are told, and it certainly does, for here we are at the end of
our second year at E. H. S. Our memory book is already half completed with
records of these past twomyears of events very dear to us.
We were guided along our freshman path by Mr. Arnold Cleary. Class officers
were: president, Robert Craigg vice-president, Carol Kinlockg secretary, Carol
Poudrier, treasurer, Linda Knowlton. We were proud of Robert Craig when he
was elected an alternate for Good Government Day and represented our school
in the district American Legion Oratorical Contest. Olga Dailyde won the Helena
C. Evans Art Award, and also a prize in the poster contest at the University of
Massachusetts Small Schools Basketball Tournament. Linda Knowlton won the
General Science Award for the class of 1957.
In the spring we helped sponsor the Freshman-Sophomore Dance, which was
attended by many of our schoolmates and proved to be a splendid success.
At the close of our First wonderful year at E. H. S. we were already looking
forward to our sophomore year.
With Mr. Howard Graham as our sophomore advisor, we elected the following
class oflicers: president, Ralph Benham, vice-president, Robert Craig, secretary,
Alice Lafontaineg and treasurer, Robert Patterson.
Carol Poudrier, Irene Soja, and Carol Kinlock did fine work as second team
cheerleaders and our majorettes, Holly Osborn, Carol Mimitz, and Irene Soja
gave a commendable performance at the basketball tournament.
We all look forward to many more good times in the next two years to fill
the remaining pages of our memory book of E. H. S. gulf,

This year's freshman class survived the customary hilarious initiation into the high school student body
to enjoy the delightful reception given them by the Student Council. October 8, 1954 saw many quaking
freshman strolling through the halls of E. H, S. wearing weird and fantastic headgear. During assembly a
parade of hats around the auditorium aflorded upper classmen an excellent opportunity to judge the imagi-
native and creative powers of the incoming class. Bird cages, egg boxes trimmed with chicken legs, overturned
lampshades, all sorts ol' amazing articles were used to fashion hats such as would cause modern designers to turn
green with envy. To the most original artists were awarded copies of the 1954 Echo.

Lucy McHone, treasurerg Christine Skrzyniarz, secretaryg and Irene Marcisz and

and various other school activities. Robert Graham entered the Good Government
Day contest and tied for second place in the American Legion Oratorical Contest
in this district. A good percentage of our freshmen class made the honor roll. A
change in our officers for the second semester saw Marie Pratt as treasurer, and
Richard LaPlante and Irene Marcisz representing us in Student Council.

from each of the four classes -four boys and four girls
from the Senior class, three each from the Junior class,
two each from the Sophomore, and one each from the
Freshman class. There is also an assembly of the presi-
dents of the home rooms who report back to the home
rooms on whatever takes place at a meeting.
The Council brings up for discussion problems of the
school and promotes various activities that help to make
a better school.
This year, as in past years, the Student Council
sponsored the Freshman Reception which proved to be
an entertaining successful affair- The home room
presidents sold book covers and school banners to raise
funds for the treasury. Some members acted as ushers
during National Education Week, directing parents and
guests to the teachersg others sold tickets at all the home
basketball games. A committee of Student Council
representatives selected the varsity and junior varsity
cheerleaders. Another committee assisted Mr. Thayer
in selecting a new school ring. Delegates from the
Council attended conventions in Ludlow and Westfield.
Toward the end of the year the Student Council directed
a tribute in the form of a party for those seniors who
achieved the distinction of Pro Merito Society rating.
The Student Council of 1954-1955 was happy to have Miss Smith as advisorg it was with
her helpful advice and suggestions that the Council enjoyed a successful year.

OUR GOOD GOVERNMENT PROGRAM
A proclamation by the Governor of Massachusetts
designated March 11, 1955 as Student Government
Day. On this day students from throughout our state
assembled at the State House in Boston and conducted
proceedings in the same manner as the General Court.
On December 3, the day set aside as Election Day,
at a special assembly held in the auditorium, six students
campaigned by discussing important bills, many of
which were brought before the legislature in Boston
on March 'll.
Nancy Mackie, a junior, was chosen as the delegate
to represent Easthampton High School in Boston.
Roberta LaPrade was named the alternate.
On local Good Government Day, March 23, the
students of E. H. S. assumed the duties of town offices
and took over the town for a day.
Sworn in at 9 o'clock by Town Clerk Frank Janik
were the following elected oflicials: Moderator, Beverly
Graham, Selectmen: Bruce Craig, James Stone, and
Thomas Walsh, Town Clerk: Deanne LeBeaug Town
Treasurer: Christine Marcisz, Tax Collector, Richard
The appointed ofhcials, who were required to take a Civil
Service Exam included: Police Chief, Patricia Tourvilleg Fire Chief,
Joanne Gendreaug Civil Defense Director, Richard Beebeg High
School Principal, Emilie Roscoe, Supt. of Schools, Thomas
LaPlante, Supt. of Highways, Gloria LaLiberte, School Committee
Members, Donna Mitchell, Roberta LaPrade and Leonard LaRock.
The program concluded with a simulated town meeting held in
the E. H. S. auditorium on Friday, March 25, at which the whole
student body was present. Twenty-six precinct members represented
the thirteen home rooms and drew up a warrant of eleven articles
which they discussed and voted on at the meeting. Town Moderator
William Lossone instructed the precinct members as to correct
We sincerely thank the American Legion for sponsoring Good
Government programs in Easthampton High School. We are
grateful also to Mr. Lossone, lvlr. Janik and the town oflicials for
their kind help and cooperation, to Miss Lyman and the Good
Government Committee for the time and effort given to all the
planning and to the students who enthusiastically entered into
these activities. It was the cooperation of all these together that
made our Good Government Program such a success.

THE DRAMATIC CLUB
With knees knocking and stomachs churning Joyce
Dennis, Pauline Boulanger, Earl Lizotte, and Richard
Beebe set out for Gardner in the school car with Miss
Graham, their capable director, at the wheel. The
occasion was the Western Massachusetts Drama Festival
in which Easthampton was presenting "The First Dress
Suit", the opening production of the year. Following
this performance, Earl Lizotte was awarded a nomina-
tion to the all-state cast, a nomination he richly deserved.
On April Fool's Day, promptly at 6:30 p. m., a group
of tense and nervous actors reported to the high school
for the presentation of the inter-class competitive plays.
Many were sure that they would not be able to go on,
however, once on stage they all turned out excellent
performances. Each class had its own efficient stage
manager, with Dick Beebe having over-all supervision.
The freshmen had two plays, "Father,s Day Ona' and
"Our Aunt from California". The sophomore class
selected 'SLittle Yellow Ticket" as their presentation.
The juniors chose c'Mystery Mansionn, and the senior
class contributed uTruant Husbandsu. First prize went
to the seniors, second prize to the juniors. One of the
freshman plays, "Father's Day Onn, received honorable
mention. Beverly Carter, a freshman, and Betsy Ramsey,
a senior, were named best actresses, and Peter WVild,
also a freshman, best actor. Cynthia Thouin received
Despite the before-presentation jitters, not one of
these young participants would give up the fun that
goes with the Dramatic Club. One of the most enjoyable
aspects is the annual participation in the Drama Festival
which entails either a day-long trip or a week-end jaunt.
On these trips many new friends are made and a delight-
ful time is had by all. Three cheers for the casts and
the coaches who have given so unselhshly of their time
and effort for the enjoyment of so many!

A course which has become very popular since added to the school curriculum
a few years ago is the Driver Education course, supervised by its competent in-
structor, Miss Edna Graham. The purpose of this course, and similar ones which
are given in schools throughout the nation, is to lower America's extremely high
Ours is a half-year course consisting of bookwork, laws, fundamentals of
driving, movies, safety talks, and actual roadwork in the dual-controlled "driver edi'
car. This course has proved so successful that 150 students have obtained their
licenses through it, and the insurance companies have reduced their rates for
these trained drivers.
There are many humorous incidents, usually in the car, which give this course
the enjoyment ordinarily assumed to go with outside activities. With nerves of
steel and a handy foot near her second brake, Miss Graham sits placidly by while
beginners miss trees and curbs by seemingly narrow margins. How about a ride
in the school car?
The correlation of art to other school subjects is one of the aims of the art
department, supervised by Mrs. Marjorie Beebe, who endeavors in this way
make the art work more meaningful.
Art room at E. H. S. is a very busy place on Tuesday and Thursday
afternoons, especially when a holiday or major school event is imminent.
For Christmas this year the art class designed and painted a display on
masonite of pajama-clad figures hurrying down a curving stairway to a
Christmas tree which was also decorated by the class. The students cut
aluminum foil pie plates and painted them to make the tree decorations.
High school pupils again participated in the Western Massachusetts
Small High Schools Basketball Tournament poster contest. Also, in-
numerable posters were painted for school affairs, and a back drop was
done for the Senior Class Night program. At the invitation of the
Easthampton lfVomcn's Club members of the art class displayed some
of their work at the out-door art exhibit in Cctober, and received
much favorable comment.

The members of the Charm Club can look back to a
very successful year. One of the most vivid memories
will be that of the trip to the Children's Study Home in
Springfield. Toys to be distributed during this visit
were brought in to school by the girls, and any that
were damaged were repaired. Clothes were made for
Another project was a food sale to finance the clubis
trip to G. Fox Sc Company in Hartford. It was a
fascinating experience to see the new spring styles on
parade and the girls obtained many ideas for their
own spring wardrobes.
These are but two of the many projects organized
by the club. Other activities included the recording of
voices, the practicing of walking, and the correcting
of posture. New hair styles were tried out on different
club members. Much helpful information on the tech-
nique of applying cosmetics was acquired by the girls in
an Avon demonstration conducted by Shirley Brin.
We all remember with delight the
charming fashion show presented by the
dainty little misses from the first, secand,
and third grades of Center School.
Charm Club girls who acted as
junior hostesses for the D. A. R.
Open House enjoyed wearing cos-
tumes of older days donated to the
high school by Mrs. Johnston.
Each member of the club is grate-
ful to Mrs. Beebe, who made all
these projects possible, for her kind
and considerate advice on how to
be a young lady.
For boys who enjoy working with
tools, Industrial Arts, taught by Mr.
Joseph Manning, offers excellent
training in the use of both hand
and power tools. The boys also
acquire a knowledge of the different
types of wood and put this knowledge
to use in the making of various
articles of furniture. The handsome
finished products bring many an
envious glance and exclamation of

One term may find the girls preparing themselves for the tasks that will face them in later years-such
tasks as the planning and cooking of meals, the planning of proper diets, and the correct ways of operating
the devices used in modern kitchens.
In another term the girls may concentrate on the 'fundamentals of sewing. They learn how to operate
and care for a sewing machine, study different types of materials and the selection of suitable material for
various articles of clothing. The finished garments turned out by th'e girls in this course are articles of
which they may indeed be proud.
Interior decorating is another phase of home-making which adds fascination to the Household Arts course
and helps the girls to plan for future attractive homes of their own.
EASTHAMPTON HIGH SCHOOL BAND
The Easthampton High School Band, under the leadership of the
new Supervisor of Music, Mr. Kenneth Dolloff, made its first public
appearance of the year in the Pulaski Day parade. On October 12 our
band greeted the members of the Connecticut Valley Antique Railroad
Society on their fall excursion to Easthampton. For this community
service the Town of Easthampton rewarded the band with a banquet.
Veterans' Day found the members again loyally performing in the
My . M-
Among school activities in which the band
participated were the Christmas programs and the
Senior Play. ln February the band played at one
of the home basketball games, and in March
1 supported the team at the Class A Basketball
tournament held in Amherst. May was an ex-
ceptionally busy month with the annual Spring
Concert, the popular lfVcstern Massachusetts Music
Festival, held this year in Chicopee, and the local
Memorial Day Parade. On June 6, the band
enjoyed playing for Alumni Day at Williston
This year several members of the band formed
a brass choir which contributed to the Christmas
programs in the public schools and played for a
radio broadcast. It is hoped that this new feature,
which met with enthusiastic audience response,
will be continued next year.
Eastharnpton High School is proud of the fine
appearance of its band and of the splendid work,
done under the direction of Mr. Dolloff.

E. H. S. ORCHESTRA
The orchestra meets under the direction of Mr. Dolloff on Wednesday mornings
during the activity period. This year the orchestra has been rehearsing, in addition
to the usual classical selections, some new dance band arrangements of well known
songs. These arrangements are better suited to our small orchestra, making it
sound fuller and more complete. The

This activity is open to all members of the school who like to sing and gives
them an opportunity to develop their voices in group singing. This group is often
divided by the supervisor of music into a small or special glee club to prepare some
special concert or program. One half credit is given for participation in either
of these groups.
At the Christmas concert, held on December 22, 1954, the Easthampton High
School Glee Club sang the concluding number of the programf HO Holy Night."
On May 19, 1955, the Glee Club participated in the annual spring concert
and sang, among other numbers, 'The Desert Song" and "Hallelujah.,'
Several girls from the Glee Club will sing at the graduation ceremonies on
June 17, 1955.

On June 5, 1954 the E. H. S. gymnasium was en-
ehantingly decorated in accordance with the theme,
'lliivening in Paris." The girls in their frothy gowns and
the boys, proud and handsome in their tuxedos, danced
beneath silver stars and before famous Paris landmarks.
Between the dances the couples were gathered around
the festively decorated tables of famous French sidewalk
cafes. The highlight of the evening was the choosing of
the queen and her court. Queen Ivy Isherwood was
crowned by Lowell Duval and attended by the members
of her court: Shirley Lehr, Joyce Ingenito, Phyllis
Jordan, Dolores LaPlante, and julie Geryk. All too
soon midnight arrived and the glamorous Evening in
Paris was over.

P. T. A.
With the enthusiastic support of parents and the
unflagging energy of committees and officers, the East-
hampton High School P. T. A. continues its activities
in behalf of the school. In addition to its regular
programs the P. T. A. sponsors two special events each
year-the auction in November, and the card party
in March. It is hoped to make the Christmas dance,
so successfully inaugurated this year, a third annual
event. Our P. T. A. also plans to provide some new tapes
for the recorder which was purchased a few years ago.
Two prizes are awarded at graduation, one in
chemistry and, this year, one in physics. The Scholar-
ship sponsored by the P. T. A. Group Council, and
contributed by the four P. T. A.'s, is given to a senior
who is planning to enter the teaching profession.
