Our Advcrtiscrs ......,., ., MPTON HIGH S fQrXAN,0, HIGYX FOREWORD In this past year we have collected many wonderful and amusing incidents to store in the cubby-holes of our memories. In order to call them forth in days to come, we have endeavored to catch and reproduce some of these moments in this, our 1956 Echo. We have chosen the circus as our theme this year, for the lively spirit and good nature of the circus folk is not unlike that of our own friends here at E. H. S. It is easy to stretch our imagi- nations a little and draw some accurate and amusing comparisons between our acquaintances and activities here and those under the Big Top. We too, have our clowns, our acrobats, our star performers. This book, like the star's scrapbook, is our record of successful times, fun times, work times, all of which have been a part of our daily lives in Easthampton High School, and are here presented to you as you read on. . 5 We, the class of 1956, gratefully dedicate this page to Mr. Howell K. Thayer as a token of true recognition of his ever-ready help and patient efforts in behalf of this school and us through thirty-f1ve active years. Our school's excellent reputation is due, in large part, to his wisdom and alert, successful planning. Always interested, anxious to please, and willing to help not only the faculty, but also the students, realize their plans to the fullest extent, Mr. Thayer will always be remem- bered fondly and respectfully by all who have known him. 6 FWWWUW From o UI' Superinfendenf K. 4 P, FIX 9 H3 'W 324 Dr. James A. Bernard School Commiffee Arnold A. Wild, Chairman Albert A. Lussicr, Secretary Stanley F. Popiclarczyk William Lossone Raymond Shepard .132 THE CHALLENGE Students who are graduating from high school today are going to live in the most exciting period of civilization the world has known. The Class of 1956 will live faster, will need to accomplish more, will meet more people, will go more places, and will work at more complicated jobs than any people before us in all history. The "know-how" and the 'gknow-why" that equal accumulated learnings are now at your disposal, regardless of the road you may decide to travel. The Challenge is set. Accept it, Live it, and life will be meaningful to you. Godspeed and good luck. Q2,c,6.,,.,,., Lgfiuwae 8 Miss Bertha Voigt Secretary to the Superintendent Once more it becomes my pleasure and opportunity to wish the senior class God- speed and express the hope that the money and time that has been spent on them within these four walls has not been wasted. It is essential that we be prepared not merely to give all the brain-power we have, but to continue its cultivation in the future. Never before has eaeh item of knowledge been so potentially useful - so necessary for our survival. It is my sincere hope that the eharaeter and knowledge you have acquired will benefit you and the community in which you live so that peaee and prosperity may come to both of you in generous proportions. Bliss Ethel Voigt sw-' . fig? Guidance Department Mr. Kissell and Guidance Gffice Aides If you haven't met Mr. James Kissell, our new guidance director yet - even if you have met him - come along with me, and we'll get an interview - - Mr. Kissell was graduated from New Hampshire National High School, and then he went on to college. Before World War II he taught algebra, and with the coming of the war, he entered the service as a counsellor organizing task forces. Later, in his overseas work with the counter intelligence, he made use of his knowledge of the French, German, and Russian languages. Back in America again, while studying for his master degree, Mr. Kissell worked as a counsellor at the V. A. Hospital in Northampton. After receiving his master's degree, he returned to the public school system as a guidance director. Mr. Kisscll's goal in life is not only to give counselling to high school students, but to those who drop out of school, to unemployed and disabled people in the community, and to former graduates who are ready to move on to better jobs. From Mr. Kissell come these ever so true words for the youth of today, "The door is always open." 10 . x ' 4 11 To the Faculty We, the class of 1956, desire to express our heartfelt gratitude for your understanding and loyal assistance during our four years of high school. With your generous contributions of time and patience we have been successful in all our various endeavors. We now understand more fully the role our teachers play in these achievements and sincerely hope to prove our worth to you. 12 We, the Class of '56, dedicate this page to Mr. Alvan R. Lewis in sincere appreciation of his thirty-three years spent in patient under- standing, counsel, and instruction. We, who were fortunate enough to have been in his classes, realize more and more as time goes by how well he has prepared us. We shall always remember how he gave up many a week-day night to greet us at the door and take our tickets at basketball games. Friendly and helpful, Mr. Lewis is a former faculty member of whom Easthampton High School can always be proud. 13 WJ? 'Weir Cl-QCELIA H.

H. S. we were ably guided by our class advisor, Mr. Reed. Amid the confusion of plans for our first big project, the Freshman- Sophomore Party, we elected as class officers: president, Alice Gerykg vice-president, john Brothers, secretary, Corinne St. Martin, treasurer, Nancy Mackie. Much to our joy, Margaret Duryee won the Urban-Fleming Memorial Prize for outstanding work in General Science, and Nancy Mackie was presented the Helena C. Evans Art Award. 1953 - 1954 September found us again in these familiar corridors. Leading us was Miss Lee, followed by James Stone, president, Richard Fappiano, vice-president, Theresa Ceberek, secretary, Thomas LaPlante, treasurer. Being "old hands" at high school life, we participated actively in social, athletic, and academic iields. The year passed rapidly, and much to our astonishment it was June and We were eagerly looking ahead to our Junior year which was in sight. 1954 - 1955 There we were, on the third lap of our journey. This year found as our class officers: president, Thomas LaPlanteg vice- president, James Stone, secretary, Joanne Gendreaug treasurer, Patricia Tourville. Our indispensable advisor was Mr. Lewis. With his help we sponsored the Junior Party. We were proud to learn that Bruce Craig was awarded the Susan M. Mullaly Prize in French, and also the History Award offered by the International Relations Committee of the Woman's Club. Chester Kania re- ceived a prize for outstanding work in Physics. Representing E. H. S. at Girls' State was Donna Mitchell, and at Boys' State were Bruce Craig, Frank Skrzyniarz, and Chester Kania. 42 1955 - 1956 Full of excitement, we entered E. H. S. in September for the last lap of our journey. To lead us through the year was Miss Claudia Fleming, giving us her willing assistance whenever we needed it. As class officers, we elected: Thomas LaPlante President Joanne Gendreau Secretary Emelie Racicot Vice-President Patricia Tourville Treasurer Representing us at Student Council were Bruce Craig, James Stone, Richard Nadolny, David Jayes, Roberta Laprade, Patricia Tourville, Donna Mitchell, and Joanne Gendreau. Our magazine campaign proved to be very profitable. High seller for the Crowell Company was Lillian Lajoie, and Donna Mitchell took honors for the Curtis Company. Pictures, pictures, pictures! Yes, the months of February and March proved to be quite exciting ones with all of us rushing about gathering Senior pictures of our classmates. The Senior play, "Wish On the Moon", was a tremendous success. The cast, under the direction of Mr. Thayer, gave a superb performance. One of the outstanding features of this year was our annual Senior Class trip to Washington, D. C. This, indeed, was a thrill- ing experience. As chaperones, Mr. Arnold Cleary and Mrs. Marjorie Beebe did a line job. In June, along with the Juniors, we put on the Senior Prom. This was a gala affair. To wind up this, our final year in E. H. S., we are all looking forward to Class Night and finally the big step, graduation. We will leave behind us many pleasant memories of these past four years at E. H. S.

The E. H. S. gymnasium seemed transported to New Orleans with its gay balloons, streamers, and original mask decorations. Lovely girls in lovely gowns, and boys handsome in tuxedos, swirled around the floor. The most thrilling event of the evening was the choosing of the queen and her court. The queen, Luanne Bergmann, was crowned by her escort, Walter Root, in the presence of her court: Mary Weidhaas, Carol Godaire, Cynthia Thouin, Marlene LeBeau, Kay Breyer, and Marilyn Graham. Everyone agreed June 3 was one of the most delightful evenings of the year. i In-Q as 'ff if 66 X t a g ff 5 STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council is composed of representatives from each of the four classes-four girls and four boys from the Senior class, three girls and three boys from the junior class, two each from the Sophomore class, and one each from the Freshman class. The homeroom presidents, who are invited members of the Council, have no vote on issues, and report to their homerooms the happenings and activities of the Student Council. The purpose of the Student Council is to bring forth the problems, projects, and to promote activities for the good of the school. This year the Student Council sponsored the annual Freshman Reception to welcome the new members of the student body. Some of the projects and activities undertaken during the year were: the selling of banners and bookcovers by the homeroom presidents to raise money for the treasury, the attendance at the Western National Student Council Associations, meeting in Greenfield by a group of dele- gates froln the Junior class, the cleaning and rearranging o'f the trophy case, and the working of a committee with Mr. Thayer on a food project. The Student Council had a successful year under the capable supervision of their advisor, Miss Lee. 68 STUDENT GOVERNMENT ACTIVITIES After a great deal of preparation on the part of the Student Government Day Committee, a rally and election of our representative to Boston for the State Good Government Day took place on December 2. The speeches, given by Robert Craig, Charles Emerson, Robert Graham, Eileen Hefleron, and Emily Roscoe were all interesting and informative. They indicated a tremendous amount of work and the speakers did an excellent job on their delivery. The student body then selected Robert Graham to represent us on March 9. THE COMMITTEE On March 23 we held our mock town meeting with Robert Graham presiding as moderator. The meeting was carried off very smoothly with several bills passed and some defeated. Much credit is due to Miss Lou Lyman, the committee, the precinct members, and the moderator for the splendid job they did. In April the Town Good Government Day was held. The students took over town management and school administration for the day and gained a better idea of how our town is run. 69 FUTURE NURSES' CLUB After speaking to several girls who are interested in nursing, Mr. Kissell, the guidance director, thought it would be a great help to the girls if they organized a Future Nurses' Club. Although the attendance was very low at the first meeting, it was almost doubled at the second, so that now there are approximately 20 members. The club is open not only to those who are definitely sure of their future profession, but also to all students who would like to do anything connected with the medical field. There are some members representing every class, and both college and commercial courses. The aims of the club are to prepare high school students interested in the medical profession for their careers, to help them find out if they are qualified for that career and to give them a general picture of nursing. Some projects of the club were: sponsoring a public food sale, writing to the different hospitals to inquire about speakers, seeing movies on nursing. For the 'following year, the club will be sponsored by the Easthampton Women's Club which will also give a scholarship to a senior girl entering the nursing profession. At one of the first meetings of the year the following ofiicers were elected: President Lillian Lajoie Vice President Judith Watson Secretary-Treasurer Marion Szumowski Next year's program has already been started, so that the club will be ready at the first weeks of school. Speakers have been asked to give their services, and most are very co-operative. Movies are being scheduled, and the rules and regu- lations of the club will be enforced. Because some members have written to other Nurses, Clubs in the country, ideas have been obtained as to the procedure of their meetings. The E. H. S. Nurses' Club has the distinction of being the first Future Nurses' Club in Massachusetts. 70 DRAMATIC CLUB Drama Uf 1880s Ably Done By High School Thespian EASTHAMPTON-"Jane Eyre" as dranratized by Marjorie Carle- ton from Charlotte Bronte':: novel is not the usual fare -pro- vided by a high school dramatic club and the Easthampton High School Dramatic Club under Miss Edna Graham's direction is to be complimented for its courage in attempting this and to be con- gratulated on- the manner in which it was presented, with the participants entering into the manners and the thinking of the era of the 1880s, with the cast costumed appropriately and with the setting in keeping with tha times. Nancy Mackie and Robert Gra- ham- drew the leading roles oi Jane Eyre and Rochester, master of Thorndike, respectively, and did an outstanding job with their parts. Graham had a strenuous role as :tar as his lines went, in- cluding some long discourses which he got through without faltering. u Mary Pat Daley was convincing as Mrs. Fairfax, the housekeeper, another important character in the play. Another ot, the high- li hts was the portrayal cf Blanche Ingram by Margaret Duryee, who entered into the sev- eral moods of her part with un- derstanding. Leonard Larock was capable as Mason, the friend and brother-in- law of Rochester, and Judy Koe- ber immediately gave an impres- sion of her character even though her lines were limited. Linda. Mitchell was well cast as Lady Ingram and Charles Emerson played the role of the clergyman naturally. The play was longfr than the customary high sc ool vehicle but the cast ended with as much vigor and sincerity as it started and carried the lighthearted moods at the opening through the tragic end with the necessary approach. Miss Graham did a fine 'ob of directing. The E. H. S. Dramatic Club under the direction of Miss Edna Graham had a busy year. The members elected the following oihcersz Nancy Mackie, president 5 Deann Lebeau, vice-president, Dorothy Stempel, secretary-treasurer. On November 18, 1955 the Club presented its annual One-Act Play Competition. The Seniors captured first place with "Just a Little Mistake" with Deann Lebeau winning additional glory for the Seniors by being chosen Best Actress. The Freshman plays, "Aunt March Settles the Question" and "Tom Sawyer Whitewashes the F encef' won the second prize jointly and Allan Novak, a Freshman, was chosen as Best Actor. The Juniors presented "Moron's Delight" and the Sophomores, "By the Beautiful Sea." The Seniors gave a repeat performance of their prize-winning play for the Golden-Agers Club. On April 13, 1956, the Club presented "Jane Eyre," a three-act drama. The cast, stage crew and director worked very hard on it and did an excellent job with a truly difficult play. 71 CHARM CLUB The members of the Charm Club can look back at a very memorable and successful year. Like last year, some of the girls were chosen to represent us at the local DAR meeting. We are grateful to Mrs. Johnson for letting us use her old-fashioned dresses. The middle of March was the date for our annual trip to Hartford to see a fashion show at G. Fox 8: Company. Many of the girls made purchases after the show and, when we had our fashion show, they were modeled. One of the most vivid memories was that of a spring-summer fashion show which was given in the latter part of May. The clothes were modeled by the girls of the Charm Club and our audience was an all-girl assembly. It was enjoyed by all who attended. Most of the other meetings were spent teaching the girls the proper way to walk, talk, stand, and sit. Also they learned proper hair styles and the proper make-up that should be used. Each girl has a vote of thanks for our instructor and supervisor, Mrs. Beebe. 72 GLEE CLUB This year the Glee Club, under the direction of Mr. Kenneth Dolloff, presented two musical programs. The Club has been divided into two groups this year so that Mr. Dolloff may give each more individual attention. At the school's Christmas assembly in December, the choral group sang "Shepherds Rejoice" by Mansfield, "Gesu Bambino" by Pietro A. Yon, and 'AO Holy Night" by Adoph Adam. At the school concert in May, the group per- formed "One VVorld" by O'Hara-Bratton, "On- ward Ye People" by Jean Sibelius, and "Hello, Young Lovers" by Rogers and Hammerstein. This group also assisted with the graduation program.

It played for all the public schools in Easthampton and for the Easthampton Congrega- tional Church broadcast. Also, the choir entertained at the Rotary Club Dinner. The combined band and choir played for the Christmas special assembly. In February, four representatives were sent to Springfield to audition for the All State Band held in Pitts- field. They were Thomas LaPlante, Deann LeBeau, Peter Wilde, and Gail Wolfram. Because of Tom's fine musical ability on the saxophone, he was chosen to represent the band. To excite enthusiasm and school spirit the band performed at all three games of the Small School Tourna- ment. During the month also, the band played for the scho0l's annual town meeting. May was an exceptionally busy month with the Spring Concert and the enjoyable YVestern Massachusetts Music Festival, held this year in WVestf'ield. Also on May 30, the loyal members were found marching for the Memorial Day Parade. With the hnc co-operation of the members of the band and the ex- cellent supervision of Mr. Dolloff, the band had a very successful year. The band made its first appearance this year under the direction of Mr. Kenneth Dolloff on Armistice Day, November ll. It also performed splendidly for the Senior play and thc Dramatic Club plays.

' 'Fe .mu rs mmm Q Each Tuesday and Thursday afternoon the art class meets under the supervision of Mrs. Marjorie Beebe. The students in this class learn the various techniques of painting and some handicrafts. The activities this year included making papier mache dolls, copper jewelry, decorating gifts with Amazart and silk screening. As usual, the girls provided the other organizations with many, many posters for their presentations. Again the class took part in the Western Massachusetts Small High Schools Basketball Tournament poster contest. Carol Borowski's poster was chosen to repre- sent us in the contest at the Cage. The class provided the makeup crews for the Dramatic Club and Senior plays and did a splendid job. The members were delighted spectators at a Spring Fashion Show at G. Fox and Company in Hartford as guests of the Charm Club. As their last project of the year Mrs. Beebe and her group painted the backdrop for the Senior Class Night program. 76 Driver Education The Driver Education Course, supervised by its able instructor, Miss Edna Graham, has had over 200 students since it started, with a very large enrollment each year. This course has proved to be very successful in Easthampton High and has produced some very capable drivers. Many exciting and humorous incidents occur while driving. Miss Graham, with splendid nerves and control, is able to produce drivers from every one of her students. This year, for the hrst time, the town and school worked together on the Driving Roadeo. Miss Graham was an active organizer and advisor for this. 77 Household Arfs This course, taught by Miss Hazel Eames, is indeed an essential part of our curriculum. Much favorable comment is heard today from educational authorities regarding subjects such as household arts, which actively aid the student of today in becoming the capable homemaker of tomorrow. Here the girls may ready them- selves for duties they are sure to be called upon to perform in future years. During one term the fundamental techniques of cooking and meal preparation are taught, as well as special diet planning and table setting. In additon, the pupils are familiarized with the proper procedures in using and caring for modern kitchen equipment. As a new term begins, the girls are instructed in the basic principals of sewing. Here again, modern machines are available for their use. They learn the essential facts about many kinds of materials, and their suitability for various types. of clothing. Very proud, rewarding moments are theirs upon completion of clothing, they have chosen as their projects. I Also included in this course is interior decorating, which provides helpful hints and creative situations, which the girls may use in making plans for charming future homes of their own. 78 For those boys who wish to engage in the art of woodworking, the Manual Training course, under the guidance of Mr. joseph Manning, offers an excellent opportunity. The first few weeks are devoted to the instruction of the various hand and power tools, and after sufii- cient training, the student selects his first project. These projects range from lamps to modem desks. Another inter- esting aspect in this course is that the furniture made costs a great deal less than it would if purchased in a store. For future engineers, a course in mechanical drawing is also included in the Industrial Arts curriculum. This course offers the basic fundamentals of engineering and is considered to be the most important subject in the engi- neering field. These two courses are perhaps the most interesting in a young man's schooling, because they show him the importance that is laid upon the use of manual dexterity.

This year the Easthampton High School P.T.A. continued in its accustomed pattern of service to the school. During Education week in November, a food sale was arranged in the study hall for our traditional Parents' Night. In December the association once again sponsored a gay and festive Yuletide dance for the com- munity teenagers. When Dr. Paul Mather, President of the University of Massachusetts, ac- cepted the invitation of the group to speak on March 20, an outstandingly interesting and informative evening was provided for all who attended. All of the grammar school P.T.A.'s were invited, forming a large and appreciative audience. Dr. Mather stressed, in his speech, the importance of all phases of education from grade school through college. In our competitive modern world, he stated, a college diploma is as essential to the economic and personal welfare of an individual, as was a high school diploma, just a single generation ago. Following this event, two enjoyable public card parties were given. As has been its custom in past years, the organization purchased tapes for the school recorder. It also awarded the two science prizes, for outstanding achievement in physics and chemistry respectively. Also given at graduation was the P.T.A. Group Council Scholarship to which each of the individual local P.T.A. contributes, in order that a senior entering the teaching profession may be aided and encouraged in career preparation.

Those remaining, look promising so Easthampton may have team again next year. Richard Nadolny looked good this year, the scorers with six goals. James Stone was though, a good leading next hest for the Eagles with three goals. Stanley Zawaeki, another senior, helped the Web-towners with two nets. Bruce Craig and Thomas Wlalsh, not found in the scoring column, displayed brilliant defensive team- work. Bernie Koher, who is only a sophomore added another two points to bring the total goals for the season to thirteen. Basketball 7955 -56 We are all proud of our boys this year for winning the Western Iwiass. Small High School Invitation Tournament. In the regular season, they ended third in the Valley Wheel. To Coach Reed, we would like to express our sincere appreciation for the wonderful work he has done with the boys here in the past, as well as this year. We're sorry to see him resign, but we wish him happiness.

The first game was against Searles High, an early tourney favorite. Easthampton entered as the underdog and was at the tail-end of a 16-10 score at the end of the first period, and left the floor at the half still trailing with a score of 39-33. After the rest period, Easthampton caught fire and out-scored Searles 17-7 by the combined precision shooting of the whole team. In the final period, Searles made a gallant bid, but this was more than offset by the scoring punch Easthampton possessed in Bruce Craig, Jim Stone, and Richard Nadolny. The final score was 66-65, and the team left the floor while the fans attempted to recover from the shock of this upset. With this first victory under their belts, the team went home to rest up for the game against Williamstown. On Friday night, Easthampton was leading by a score of 31-30 at half-time. Again every member of the team contributed to the scoring. In the third quarter, Easthampton out-scored Williamstown 22-13 to build up a 10-point lead of 53-43. In the last quarter, Bill Paradise of Williamstown caught fire for 10 points, but the scrappy Easthampton five made their lead stick and went on to win. Easthampton, who had entered the game a slight favorite if they could repeat the performance against Searles, won by a score of 64-60. In the finals on Saturday night against St. Mary's High School of Westfield, Easthampton, playing increasingly bigger clubs, played without the services of Bernie Kober. He had suffered a bone injury to his ankle in the game against Williams- town, but had 7 points to show for scarcely more than a half of playing time. Easthampton trailed by 1 basket at the end of their first and second periods with the score-board reading 11-9 and 22-20 respectively. Easthampton slipped to 7 points behind at the end of the third quarter with only Stone and Gwinner hitting. As the game went into the 4th and final period, things looked pretty bad for the Easthampton quintet. Easthampton, refusing to accept defeat, fought back with an attack spearheaded by Nadolny and Craig who hooped 8 points each and Jim Stone hitting for 4, with Easthampton outscoring St. Ma1y's 21-6. This was made possible, largely by the fine re-bounding of Ed Gwinner. With the final score reading 52-44, Easthampton had done it again. Stone and Craig were tied for scoring honors with 13 points each with Rich Nadolny close behind with 12, and Ed Gwinner and Dave jayes with 7 each. A vote of thanks goes to the cheerleaders, tumblers, majorettes, Mr. Dolloff and the band, and the fans for their loyal support and outstanding sportsmanship. ss Corinne St. Martin, Captain Theresa Baldyga Jean Kaeppel Alyce Ceryk Cheerleaders ...
