We also wish to take this opportunity to thank publicly those who have so graciously aided us in the compilation of the high school's history and in obtaining interesting information concerning the members of the alumni. We, the class of '32, feel intensely the honor not only of being the fiftieth class to graduate from Farmington High School and to have, incidentally, a quota of fifty members, but also the fact that we are the first class to spend all four years in the new building. And now, in a reflective frame of mind due partly, perhaps, to the stress which has been placed upon the past and our predecessors, and partly to the fact that we realize we are leaving Farmington High School. as students, for- ever, we feel a strong determination taking possession of us to come back as members of the alumni and to uphold the standards of the school for another fifty years as that first graduating class has so ably done.

At that time, and for many ensuing years, the institution was known as the Unionville High School, until a complaint on the part of the citizens of Farmington brought about the change which exists today. The commencement exercises of that first class, which were under the supervision of Mr. Montieth, whom we honor as the first principal, were held in the Congregational Church, which stood where the Town Hall now stands. Of the four graduates, three were boys. It is interesting to note that the salutatorian of the class, Iohn Scott King, whose topic at graduation was "Education," and who, incidentally, was the first student of the high school to attend college, later was graduated from Yale with the well-known William Lyon Phelps. The valedictorian, Wallace Heady, now holds the honorable position of Iudge in one of the Springfield Courts. In 1883 no class was graduated, due to the fact that Mr. Montieth pre- vailed upon the students to remain another year that they might better fit them- selves for the future. Since this year, 1932, marks the bicentennial of Washington's birthday, we must make mention of the fact that these first two classes fittingly celebrated its occurrence and would undoubtedly have established a precedent for all ensuing classes had it not deducted too muchtime from the pupil's regular work. Of the nine members of the class of '84, those who attained especially noteworthy positions were the valedictorian, P. Tuttle, Iudge of a Superior Court in Connecticut, C. T. Callahan, now deceased, but who rose to the Iudge- ship of the Supreme Court in Springfield and William R, Hayes, the first student of the school to enter the Priesthood, The classes of '85 and '86 numbered eight and six, respectively, while the sole member of '87, Carrie Alling, who was the Methodist minister's daugh- ter, was induced to remain another year. R. Booth, of the class of '88, is at present connected with a business college of high standing. In 1889 we have the smallest graduating class in the history of the school. It's motto, "When shall we three meet again," taken from Shakespeare's "Macbeth" and used so adequately in this connection, tells us all we need to know about the numerical substance of the group. The only boy, B. F. Broderick, has since become a Roman Catholic Priest. On account of the diminutive size of this group, alumni members from the Hrst three classes were asked to take part in the commencement exercises. Iohn King, William Hayes, and Mrs. Ada Woodford, whose topic was "Memoranda Alumnorumf' were the principal participants. 9 FARMINGTON STUDENT Up to this time the high school curriculum had included merely the classical course which fitted students for college. But in 1892 two students received diplomas under the so-called English course which appeared at this time. The classes of '93 and '94 abounded in doctors, lawyers, engineers and teachers. Of the latter let us make special mention of Elizabeth H, Hafey, who for so many years as primary teacher in the Union District was the medium through which so many boys and girls acquired the foundation upon which they built their futures. '94 also boasts of the only movie actor in the history of the institution, Iulius Cowles. As we near the end of the nineteenth century we notice material changes in the scholastic atmosphere. In 1899, a third teacher was added to the faculty, which up to that time had consisted of but two, the principal included. To make room for the additional teacher, Miss Ives, a partition was put up to make a third recitation room until some years later, when the whole building was taken over by the high school. In 1900 no graduation exercises were held. In 1902 still greater changes took place in the school routine. The Senior class went as a body to the school board seeking one session and secured it temporarily with this one restriction: that if seen on the streets between 2 and 4 P, M. the offender must remain in school all day for a month. This group is also credited with having the first class emblems in the history of the school and with being largely responsible for the custom existing today of presenting a gift to the school upon leaving, for, previous to this time, it was customary for each class to flaunt banners. bearing the class colors and date, at graduaf tion time. In 1902, also, we have the first class to hold their commencement exercises in the new Town Hall. In recording the names of former students of Farmington High School we must mention the Honorable Frank lones, a member of the class of 1904 and at present a lawyer in Hartford, who has taken a very active part in alumni work. We cannot pass by the class of 1906 without pausing a moment with due reverence to Louis C. Hanrahan, who was the first boy from Unionville to enlist in the great World War and the first to :make the supreme sacrifice "over there." The classes of 1913 and 1920 produced the Hrst two professors in Elford Lounsbury and loseph Burns, while '21 graduated the Rev. lohn Delaney, '26, Robert Crowe, a teacher at Holy Cross, and Bernard Flynn, who is at present studying for the Priesthood. A decided metamorphosis took place in the fall of 1928, when the institu- tion was transferred to the new high school building. More teachers were added to the staff. New subjects, including Domestic Science, Manual Train- ing, and Commercial Law were given a special place on the high school curricu- lum. A cafeteria service was organized. An athletic field and spacious gymnasium assured the students of plenty of activity, and brought new life into sports. Nothing which might in some way benefit the students and make them better fitted to bear their share of the country's burden as citizens in the years to come, was neglected. 10 FARMINGTON SSQTUDENT Summarizing statistically all available records regarding the history of this institution since its founding, we find that of the 670 graduates, 49 are now dead, the greatest toll of lives having been taken from the class of '97, which has lost half of its members. For three years, namely, 1883, 1887, and 1900, no commencement exercises were held. While the smallest class was that of '89 with three members, the largest up to date is the class of '31, with thirty-five. However, it is expected that the fiftieth graduating class will outnumber all others, having incidentally a total of about fifty students. For Farmington High School we prophesy a continuance of the already high position it holds scholastically as ranked with other institutions of its kind: an increasing interest in sports and social life which is necessary as a basis for contact with others later in life: the continuance and rejuvenation of the alumni association: and finally, fifty more years of successfully preparing young men and women for life. HELEN HARTIGAN, '32, Class Prophecy S I sat in my New York office some weeks ago, a Western Union telegram was handed to me saying I must return to Farmington for two weeks for jury duty. The missive was signed uludge Henry Dobrynskif' My consternation diminished, however, when I read the little note at the bottom, MClass reunion, Alumni Rooms, Iune 15, 1942" Besides performing a service for my little town, I would have the opportunity of seeing or hearing of my classmates. With my Packard fully overhauled, I left New York Iune 1. Approaching Farmington early in the evening, I maintained a steady watch for a sign reading "Tourists Accommodatedf' lust over the town line. a sign 'ACarol Skoglund's Boarding House," illuminated in blue and white lights, attracted my attention. Carol in her high school days had had a reputation for good cooking, and I knew she would have something tasty. "This milk is very good, Carol. Do you get it from Bryant EH Chapman?" A'No, from a West Avon milkman, Richard N. Petersen, who has been giving fine service for eight years." "So Pete's a dairy farmer?" She nodded and to my further questions about the class, I found that Carol was still one hundred per cent. in woman's special art-giving informa- tion. Carol indeed had kept in touch with the class and offered me some pleasing as well as startling information. William Toth took Miss Bowers place in F. H. S. in the mathematics department. "Is Helen Hartigan, our valedictorian, still picking peaches in Burling- ton?" was my query. "Helen's the editor and owner of the Morning Review, in which Harry Wells, the winner of last year's Pulitzer Prize, has so many articles. His 'Romance of Philosophy' was a wonderful seller. Helen has George Schultz as the chief reporter of her daily edition. GeorQmust have secured his experience standing on Hackney's corner morningsf ll FARMINGTON STUDENT "Why don't you stay until tomorrow noon?" she went on, "I expect Mildred Roncaioli and Catherine Gurovich out for luncheon. They have been very successful as nurses and often visit Catherine Onidi's 'Hosiptal for Destitute Dogs and Cats.' They say that Charlie Cadwell is one of the trustees. Whether his interest is in the dogs and cats or the owner, I cannot say at this time." Carol yawned and I knew she had finished for the evening. In my dreams that night, I saw members of the class all extending welcoming hands to me and when I awoke the next morning I felt sure that the reunion would have some happy moments. But that necessary evil A jury duty. As I entered the jury box at 9:30, I met the prosecuting attorney, Donald Bowler, who warned me that "Iustice was the supreme command." I readily saw that Donald had kept up his argumentation and debating to attain this successful position. The first case was of local color, that of Amy Farry against the defendant, Edmund Penny. Edmund, in one of his tender moments, had promised to marry Amy. You must remember that Amy had f'p50,000, so don't be too harsh on Edmund. lack Clifford was the star witness for Mr. Penny and through his splendid testimony saved Edmund quite a sum of money, money which he immediately invested in more chicken houses. Court duty proceeded monotonously for two weeks and happy indeed was I when the spring session was over. The Alumni reunion was my next objective. In what way would my classmates have changed? Would Edith Anderson be as lively as ever? When I entered the cafeteria the next evening I found many changes among my classmates. Irene Campion I hardly recognized, for she now weighed 200 pounds. Instructor in the Y, W. C. A. gymnasium was Irene's occupation. Nellie Zurles was singing a ditty called "If I Were a Bird." Nellie was very successful in teaching music in the Burlington schools. A dark complexioned youth approached me and offered his hand. The handclasp nearly broke every bone in my arm. Who was this Hercules? Gege Lauretti, of course. I-Iis moustache puzzled me. He was in training for the 1942 Olympics in Turkey and expected to win recognition through his ability to toss the shot put. Bert Peltier was toastmaster because it was in keeping with his position of entertaining the movie magnates when they visited the Paramount studios on Long Island. Bert told me that Mildred Wiiialski was doing well for Fox since she had obtained Frank Cadwell for her leading man. Suddenly Bert wrapped furiously on the table for order. Somebody was creating a disturbance. Doris Buteau never acted that way in our school days. But now she was fiery and eloquent in her demands to have Farmington I-Iigh School establish a club for contract bridge. Doris was our local representa- tive in the Senate. Edward Ryan had become a strict vegetarian and lived on the income of his farm in Scott's Swamp. Monoog Bagdigian had a flying field close to the farm and he and Ed. had come to blows one day when Monoog in a very low flight had knocked the chimney from Ed.'s new home. Of course Cupid had a high score among our class and as a result Marie Derby, Marie Stieg, Margaret Mack, Margaret Rossvall, and Gertrude Flood were now bearing changed names. 12 FARMINGTON STUDENT Charles Blinn was chauffeur for Winchell Smith and gave Helen Battista a ride back and forth to her work in Dr. Shapiro's office every day. As the movies say, "They were that way about each other." Francis Cignoli was sporting a Cadillac roadster. He could afford to, since he received a magnifi- cent salary from Rudy Vallee and the National Broadcasting Company for his skill on the saxophone. Bill Ryan was setting a good record coaching the Terryville High School team. Harold Schiedel had been conducting an old- fashioned dance marathon in Burlington, but had had to conclude it because Loretta, his sister, thought that he had too many Virginia reels and should change to square sets. We all noticed that Bob Saunders ate very sparingly. The reason- simply, Bob was in training for the lightweight crown and was under the tutelage of Bat Battalino of Hartford. Alma Bailey, Mildred Iudd, and Edith Anderson were teaching school. Alma in Kingsville, Mildred in Avon, and Edith in Weatogue. Mary Marek was very charming as hostess, a position she had daily in the Apple Tree Inn. Dorothy Busch was an artist and drew several pictures of the individual members of the class on napkins. Her school chum, Isabel Vibert, could not attend the reunion for she was up in Alaska doing missionary work. and collecting unusual specimens of seals. Glenys Mosher and Agnes Arnold were steriographers in the employ of Rourke Robotham Company. When the class roll was called, Mary DeParolis was also missing. She had become a detective and was very busy on a case in Farmington trying to solve the mystery of the ringing of the curfew at ten o'clock instead of at nine. We all enjoyed Pauline lanes' dancing. George White had certainly worked wonders for her, There was one individual who did not have much time to herself at the reunion, That was Sophie Ostroske. We hardly knew her with her large dark-rimmed glasses. Sophie was class secretary and had to submit the news to the Alumni records. During the day she was ticket seller at the Central Theater. She boarded in West Hartford with Frances Manyak, who ran a beauty parlor. Marion Tallmadge was a private secretary to Robinson Egoe. President of the Unionville Gas Works, and was considered an important cog in the wheels of the institution. I learned that Dorothy Nawrocki was still painting, but this time pictures of rural life in Unionville. Anne Dublac helped her considerably when she was not employed at the nursery for the blind. Charlie Cadwell reported that Margaret Herzog had inherited quite a sum of money and was spending it quite copiously in ball games in Hartford and New York. She had been anxious to secure Grantland Rice's job with Colliers, but her sex was against her. Two o'clock and we are still exchanging news bits. George Schulz had fallen asleep and his snoring awoke us to the fact that it was time for the class of 1932 to depart until 1947, when once again we would gather at the Farmington High School. home of our dearest memories. EDWARD NELSON. 13 , FARMINGTON STUDENT lust Half a Century just half a century has passed along Since the first class: and when you're gone Life may then smile and fortunes bend While others plod the paths of men. Yet sadness creeps as we view the list, For ranks are thinned and some are missed. Let's pray that fifty years from now, The self-same spirit that you vow Will penetrate your inmost soul. And as the seasons on you roll You'll live to serve, you'Il love to share, Make life just better 'cause youre there. EUGENE W. ELLIS. Superintendent. Class Will T IS a matter of course that when a man dies he Writes a will bequeathing his property, estate, and other belongings to his relatives. Now the class of 1932 is not singing a funeral dirge, but we feel as if we have acquired some habits and specialties during our four years at Farmington High School that We are anxious to leave to the undergraduates, who are our only kinsmen in high school days.

Pother quietly swallowed the king and trey of clubs. Now, having only three suits, fnot to mention the ten dresses, four pairs' of shoes, etc.J, she took this trick and the next thirteen. Mrs. P. C. W. still had two cards in her hand, but one was discovered to be a joker, and the other an admittance to Moey's speakeasy. ' The end of the first nights play in the contract bridge match between the teams captained by Mrs. Itfloats Stoopnagle and Mrs. Percival P. C. W. Pother found the English lady, Mrs. P. C. W., 09990 points in the lead, owing to an almost incredible number of deuces, tno relation to the deuce-take-it J, held by Mrs. P. C. W. Pother and her partner, Mrs. Musclebound. In fact as Mrs. R. U. Musclebound, as dummy, tnothing personal meantj, laid down her hand in the fifty-seventh deal of the still unfinished first rubber and displayed two- spots and it later developed that Mrs. P. C. W. Pother herself had three, Mrs. Itfloats Stoopnagle and Mrs. I. C. Skidmore began to chew their finger nails and curse quietly under their breath. A lousy finesse by Mrs. I. C. Skid- more nearly caused Mrs. Stoopnagle to start a riot, but the riot was out of gas- oline and unable to start. Thus the first rubber of this stupendous bridge contest was ended. The noted players unanimously voted to postpone the contest until after the coming of the Presidential election, for the sake of publicity. Watch your local newspaper for later developments. GEORGE L. Lusk, '33. 17 FARMINGTON STUDENT A True Sportsman ARRY BENGSTEN rapidly turned the pages of the Euenin journal until he came to the sports section. Eagerly he scanned the grst page. No, nothing there. With a disappointed look he turned anxiously to the second page. Then his face lit up, for there it was, and in headlines, tool "Trowbridge and New Kensington to Meet in Crucial Tilt." MOnly undefeated major high school football teams to battle for state championship at New Kensington Saturday." Swiftly Harry's eyes swept down the column. His cheeks glowed and his breath came fast. This was fame all right! Near the middle of the page he read something that almost made his heart do a flip-flop, Again and again he read it. "Captain Harry Bengsten will be at center for Trowbridge. One of the mainstays of his team, he has played brilliantly all season and is regarded as one of the best defensive players in the state. If he can stop New Kensington's terrific offensive no doubt he will make the all-state eleven." His heart pounded wildly as he pushed the paper aside and started to his room with his books to study. "lf he can stop New Kensington's terriflic attack," raced through his brain. If he could! Imagine! The all-state eleven! On his desk he found a letter. Picking it up he noticed the postmark. New Kensington. He tore it open. There was a note and a carefully folded sheaf of papers. The note read: "Here is a complete set of New Kensington's plays. They will try them all on Saturday, so be prepared. Hope you win. A FRIEND." Harry"s head whirled. He stared at the folded sheets of paper in his hand. He clutched them tightly, exultantly. Again the words pounded through his head, "If he can stop New Kensirigtons terrible attack." Already he could see himself, backing up the line, smashing play after play before the thundering grandstands. Already he could see the newspapers with their glowing accounts of his sensational playing, proclaiming him another Tricknor or Crowley or some other defensive star. And then when he made the all-state eleven, perhaps he might get a college scholarship on his football ability. He was trembling with excitement when he sat down. Then he noticed on his desk his paperweight, a tiny statuette of a football player with the inscription "A True Sportsman fights hard but fair" across the bottom. He let the signals slip from his hand. His soaring thoughts came tumbling down. He was bewildered and confused. The atmosphere seemed suffocating, and leaping up he bounded down the stairs two at a time and went out into the cool evening air. In about fifteen minutes he returned, quiet and determined. Going to his room, he picked up the folded sheets of paper, thrust them back into their envelope ancl tossed it into the wastebasket. Then opening his history, he went earnestly to work. All the Sunday papers in the state carried an account of the championship game. The score was 19-7 in favor of New Kensington. The star of the game was Don Brant, New Kensington fullback, who tore the Trowbridge defense to pieces, driving his way to three touchdowns. On defense, too, he was a tower of strength, something that was unusual for him. Bengsten, the papers stated, played hard and well. but was not exceptional. The all-state 18 FARMINGTON STUDENT eleven was also published. Brant, Fullis, and Zalenski of New Kensington and Langley and Roraback of Trowbridge made the team. Harry read the names of the eleven without emotion. He had been silent and dejected ever since the game the afternoon before. He was wretched in his disappointment, yet he found some solace in the knowledge that he had played hard and fair. He gazed at the names of the team. The letters became distorted. Center, Durkin, Westport, faded into center, Bengsten, Trow- bridge. Slowly he shook his head and smiled wanly. No, he wouldn't have it that way even if he had another chance. On Tuesday, Harry found another letter lying on his desk. It, too, was postmarked New Kensington. He opened it and read. "When I sent you our signals I was very angry and down and out. Our coach had benched me the week before, unjustly I thought, which all but ruined my chances for the all-state eleven. I was so blamed sore that I sent you the signals, knowing you backed up the line and could use them to the best advantage. However, I was soon stung with remorse. The thought that I had betrayed my school and my team troubled me so that I thought I could never look up again. When our coach told me on Wednesday that I was going to start the game I had a slight chance to make up for what I had done. I never was so determined and desperate in my life as when I started the game. When I saw you hadn't learned the signals, I almost went wild and played way over my head. I want to thank you for doing what you did. I can't tell how much it meant to me. Thanks again from a reformed sportsman to a true sportsman. DON BRANTHV Those two words, "True Sportsman," filled Harry with an indescribable joy: he was happy, terribly happy. Then his eye caught sight of the paper- weight. He smiled and could have sworn that the little football player smiled back. ' ROBERT SAUNDERS. Theme Songs japan-"My Mantchurialf' China-"Bye, Bye, Bluefjacketslf' Germany-'ilust one more chance."

What does he care for his college now When a laurel is waiting to circle his brow. I-Ie'll fight for his nation, his nation to save: But does he know of the sacrifice he gave? I wonder if he would so willingly go If he of the suffering could really know: But his answer would be like so many before, "I'll fight as my fathers have fought of yorel" So out on the battlefield, we find him there: Out in the front with the least bit of care, Fighting so bravely with others too Glad that his little bit he could do. The battle rages fiercely, 'tis hard to be won: But we find that his part the youth does not shun, Info the thickest until smoke hides the scene And mars the beauty of the landscape green. The cannon ceases, the smoke begins to rise And into the dreadful mass we cast our eyes- A bloody mass in the dreadful view Was he counted in their number too? Yes, there he is in the fearful rows. His face toward heaven, where he ends his Gone with others in that fierce assault,- Fierce enough to make a larger army halt. 112095, And such is his fate, and others, too, Who bravely went to war and dying knew That a little wooden cross was their laurel wreath Telling of heroes in the sod beneath. EDWARD NELSON 20 FARMING-'TON STTTUDEYTTS T-- Beyond the Styx STEADY hum from Farmington I-Iigh. The noise was terrific. Per- haps, the noisiest room was the typewriting room, where keys beat endlessly upon the typewriter rolls. Perhaps the heat, and the rhythm of typewriter keys were too much for lack. Slowly, swaying to the tat-tat-tat, his head sank upon the keyboard. Off through space he flew, till he came to a strange land where time was no more. Soon he spied a broad river. Quickly he dropped down at its edge. MWhat place is this?" wondered the boy. "You are on the bank of the River Styx," rang out the voice of a boatman further down the bank. "lump into the boat, and I'll take you across to see some shades who recently arrived from your world." The river was safely crossed, a guide was furnished, and off our Farming- tonian started. "Day is just beginning," announced the guide, "so you'l1 have a fine chance to visit our schools." "Do you have school in such hot weather?" questioned lack, i'Most certainly, but our schools are quite different from those in your world," explained the guide. "We take a victim, furnish the best teachers of the ages, and use practical demonstrations. Better results are usually obtained by having the pupils stand on red-hot coals." "That must produce a feeling similar to being called upon when you haven't studied your lesson, and can't even guess at the answer." i'Exactly," agreed the guide. "Show me some of your schools in action," urged lack in anticipation. "I will, but you must remain silent while I explain the happenings," ad- monished Iack's companion, "First, notice that winged horse tour equivalent to your automobilesl that is rapidly approaching us. All of our victims own one of them to get to school on time. They are very fierce beasts and you must sing constantly if they are to keep their temper." "See that man getting off? That's Mr. Ellis, and he looks all worn out, Well, I can't say that it is unusual, when you consider that he must sing at the top of his voice to the horse all the time." "These horses are the shades of radio sopranos who have since been sub- jected to listen to other people sing for them. You can imagine what torture that must be!" "Do you recognize the fellow flying through the air? That's Mr. Taylor being put through an experiment by Sir Isaac Newton to test his law of falling bodies. Archimedes, Watts, Franklin and others are waiting to conduct similar tests with him. That's what you call real laboratory work." "Those ancient-appearing men over by that furnace include Herodotus, Confucius, Pericles, Moses, Ptolemy, Napoleon, and the Gracchi. They're cross-questioning Miss Ames just now." "To the left you see Miss Bower being taught how to take the square foot of a circle." 21 FARMINGTON STUDENT A'Off in the distance Miss Sullivan is receiving a course in memory train- ing. Her teachers are Shakespeare, Burns, Milton, and Longfellow. It's a perfect shame that with all the time pupils have, she can't memorize a book of poetry or Shakespeare every night." "Over there Miss Whitney is reading 'Les Miserables' from the French under the direction of Victor Hugo. They say that coals heated to a certain pitch will bring forth just the right sounds from the pupils." "Our best teachers are old Romans. Why, there's Virgil and Cicero now-teaching Mr. Burns! Notice the clever way in which he is being taught to diagram each sentence while quoting a rule for each action." "The rumbling of the seige guns off to our right, comes from the battle- field, where Generals Washington and Lee are giving a practical demonstra- tion to Miss Reed and Miss Dronfield. After the battle they must learn the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence." A'Over there on that little knoll, Miss Clark is getting the chance of taking dictation from Floyd Gibbons, while reciting the rule for each outline." "Come on a little further. There, you see a powerful figure fashioned by man's hands, come to life-Hercules! He is giving Mr. Smith and Mr. Murphy some setting-up exercises and muscle-twisters in preparation for the All-Hades Olympiad." You'll probably locate some others here that you know: Miss Francis, Mrs. Curtis, Mr. DeAngelo, Miss Osborn, Miss Watson, and-B-Z-Z-Z-Z-" "lack, have you finished your section today?" "No, Mr. Smithln A'Then 3:05 for youll!" MARGARET Hisizzoc, '32, Preparing for Exams NE of the first things I do to prepare for an exam is to pick up a good Western story magazine and bury my thoughts in it, planning to read only a little while. Soon the villain is about to be hunted down by the hero and seven-thirty arrives. At seven forty-five the hero has been caught by a band of cattle rustlers and is being beaten with chairs with the gang leader pressing a gun into his ribs while the rest of the gang laugh. At eight o'clock he is freed and is dashing away across the desert into the night. At quarter past eight he is returning with a gun and a few pals. Eight-thirty arrives and the whole rustler gang is being fought by a few men. By nine o'clock the hero shoots the gang chief just as he is about to escape. and then the hero and heroine are married. By ten o'clock they are settled down on a little ranch back in the hills. It is here I come to a quick stop when I remember I have not prepared for the exam. The next morning is the time set for the preparation. When I sit down at my desk I hear the boys fooling out in the hall. Here all studyin stops and out in the hall I go. The exam comes and goes like all good things, lleaving its mark on the report card. F. FLOOD, '34, 22 FARMINGTON STUDENT IF If you could get to class on time and never, never shirk, If you could always have your books and start right in to work, If you could always answer all the questions teachers ask, And other times be silent although it be a task, If you could always have your home-work in on time, And never, never drop your books, Would it not be sublime? If you could do all of these things, Yes, each and every one, You'd earn your A's and credits, And be happy when 'twas clone. I u Iust a Day As the day closes on our life at school, And we pass forever from under its rule, We carry with us thoughts of this day Spent in such a careless, nonchalant way. At dawn we rose to the tasks in view, Young, irresponsible, and childish, too, As Freshmen we struggled with serious intent, Not realizing just what the whole thing meant, Then as Sophomores we took our stand Feeling grown up and perhaps a bit grand. Then, athletically, socially, scholastically, too. We showed upper classmen what we could do. We were luniors then-and the day wore on, We gave our play and our junior Prom, And we began to realize the problems we'd face When '31 went, leaving a vacant place. And now were the Seniors of thirty-two, Preparing, Farmington High, to bid you adieu. That's why we're pausing, reflecting this way, And reviewing this brief but pleasant day. We're the fiftieth graduating class, they say And we wonder if the others all felt this way, When their day at Farmington drew to an end Henceforth but a memory, like that of a friend.

What changes have occurred during these fifty years! The pupils of today are not obliged to buy their books: means of transportation are provided for those who live at a distance: vocational courses have been introduced which make it possible for a child to better prepare himself for the work he is to perform later in life: sports and activities of various kinds have been added which have created a greater interest in the school. It is only by the cooperation of the townsmen and the alumni that such advantages can be supported. Therefore, we sincerely hope that the alumni of the future will continue to give their earnest support to the school as they have done in the past. We, the fiftieth class to graduate, extend our heartiest congratulations to the classes preceding us, particularly the class of 1882, which had the honor or being the first to graduate from F. H.

The Hrst meeting was on September 29, 1931, with sixty-four members present. The officers which were elected for the current year are as follows: President, Margaret Rossvallg Vice-President, Mary Chester: Secretary and Treasurer, Luella Grimes. ln the meetings that followed we prepared songs suitable for future programs. ln December we gave our annual Christmas pageant in which both Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs participated. Immediately after this we selected and began the study of new songs for a concert to be given Iune 3, 1932. Perhaps the most important contribution of our Club this year will be the music for Commencement. The songs to be sung that evening are, inci- dentally, the same ones used by the class of fifty years ago. With this successful season behind us, we are looking forward to a splendid year in 1932-'33 and we are hoping that a group of girls, as co-opera- tive as this year's Club, will be on hand in September to fill the vacancies left by the Seniors of '32. LUELLA Gnuvias, Secretary. 39 FARMINGTON STUDENT Senior High School Girls' Basketball Team When five out of six members of the crack team of 1930-'31 were gradu- ated, it was expected that this year's team would be much weaker than its predecessor. As a result of Miss Francis' efforts a fine team was developed, although it did not reach the average of last year's basketball team. If the initial team could have been kept intact throughout the season, a better showing would have been made. Unfortunately, our high scorer, Grace Flood, was injured in the first game with Windsor High, and was prevented from playing the rest of the term. This game was one of the most exciting ones played, and was it rough! We won it just the same, even though the opposing team did get the state championship last year. Our fighting team looks forward to a more successful season next year, which we hope will be a credit to Farmington High. 1. The regulars were: G. Flood, M. Derby, M. Roncaioli, S. Ostroske, M. Day and V. Valigorsky. 2. The substitutes were: F. Kacmarcik, M, Silver, E. Sperry, Herzog, M. Manyak, Doris Cromack, A. Iudd, L. Toth, L. and M. Grimes, A. Uliaz and N. Zurles. 3. Manager: Margaret Herzog. 4. Manager-elect: Carol Brooks. 5. Captains: Grace Flood and Victoria Valigorsky. 6. Captain-elect: Grace Flood. .

November 2-Farmington 0, Plainville 0. November 18-Farmington 0, Connecticut College Frosh 1. November 21-Farmington 2, Plainville 3. 41 FARMINGTON STUDENT Iunior High Schools N THE Iunior High Schools, both Unionville and Farmington, soccer was introduced last fall. Mr. Smith coached Unionville while Mr. Bachman, assisted by Mr. Hunt, coached Farmington. Although they played much more experienced, and, in the case of Unionville, much larger opponents, both teams made line showings. Farmington showed up especially well, winning the majority of their games, while Unionville failed to break into the winning column, although most of their games were very closely played. In basketball Mr. Hunt put out even a better team than last year, and as a result Farmington finished in first place in the Farmington Valley League. Unionville got away with a fine start, but the loss of their coach for the rest of the season prevented them from finishing as strong as they had started out. But in baseball, the grand old national sport, we predict that the teams will make their best showings. Farmington will have a hard time to make a better record than last year's championship team, but without a doubt they will be as good. Moreover we confidently believe that if any team should take first place from Farmington it will be Unionville, for it is hard to find a snappier or more aggressive team in the league. Mr. Smith turned up a lot of baseball talent in spring practice and developed it remarkably well. In closing we wish to remark about the genuine interest shown by both institutions toward all sports and to commend the efforts of all teams, both the winners and the losers. No wonder Farmington High is beginning to make the sporting world sit up and take notice when its athletes get such fine primary training! SAUNDERS, '32. l 42 FARMINGTON STUDENT Farmington Senior High Athletics We are especially fortunate in procuring Charles Murphy, former Con- necticut College grid star, as coach of the boys' athletics this year, He developed exceptional football and basketball teams, which in their class ranked with the best in the state, and we confidently expect him to put out fine baseball and track teams. Although both were winning teams, Coach Murphy emphasized a fighting outfit above a winning team, which not only won much respect and admiration for the school, but also gave the boys participating in the games the greatest benefit that can be derived from a love for rough going. Football The football team turned in a fine record of four victories-two defeats- two losses against much heavier opponents. The first game was lost to Enfield, at Enfield, 0-14, but, in the second game the overconfident Plainville team succumbed to the local cyclone 7-0 at Plainville. The Suffield Prep Iayvees outweighed our team by about ten pounds to a man, but they could do no better than a 6-6 tie on their own gridiron. The Manchester Iayvees proved an easy victim on our own gridiron, going down 21-6, but Lewis High managed to eke out a 12-6 win at Southington for the team's second and last defeat of the season. The most satisfactory win of the year was the 6-0 victory over Kings- wood Prep at West Hartford, inasmuch as we are the only public school on their football schedule and are believed to be of a lower caliber than the prep schools. The fourth victory was over Litchfield Republic on our home grid by a score of 7-0, while the final game of the year resulted in a 6-6 tie, also at home, with the powerful Stafford Springs team. The lettermen werez, Captain Toth, fullback: D. Bowler, W. Ryan and Scheidel, ends: Dobrynski, Bronson and Clifford, tackles: F. Cadwell, C. Cadwell, R. Saunders and L. Parrott, guards: Grocki, center: E. Lauretti, quarterback: Brarnan, Lesiak and Kacmarcik, halfbacks: E. Ryan, manager. William Bronson was elected captain by the lettermen and will have I. Scheidel, Grocki, L. Parrott, Kacmarcik, Braman and Lesiak on his team next year besides Morrissey, Wilde, Buteau, B. Ryan, W. Wells, and Marek, who, with Schultz, made up the second team which played several games. ROBERT SAUNDERS, '32. Track and Field Coach Murphy started a track and field team this year. The track events will consist of 100, 220, 440, and 880 yard races, while the field events will be the shot put, running broad, standing broad and high Jumps. - Y The team is as follows: Braman, Lesiak, Hein, W. Ryan, Dobrynski, Wilde, Grocki, Lauretti, Brown, Hotchkiss, Heffernan, Brooks, Clifford, Carson and Robert Saunders, Captain. , An inter-class meet will be held April 22, to be followed by dual -meets with Simsbury and Litchfield at the High School. 43 FARMINGTON STUDENT ' Boys' Glee Club The Boys' Glee Club took an active part in the annual Christmas pageant held in the High School Auditorium in December. Later, in Ianuary, the Glee Club participated in a minstrel given for the beneflt of the Athletic Association. Arrangements are being made for a musical recital, by the combined Girls' and Boys' Glee Clubs, to take place sometime in May. Mr. Edgar Brown. who was our guest artist at the last concert, will be with us again this year. The following officers were elected by the members of the Boys' Glee Club for 1931-'32s President , EC-mio LAURETTI Vice-President . STANLEY WHITEMAN Secretary and Treasurer GEORGE LUSK Librarians . , HASSETT AND Bu'rEAu GEORGE L. LusK, '33, Golf The golf team this year consists of Iohn Silver, Ed Ryan, Raymond Hitch- cock and Paul Aliano as regulars, and Iames Morrissey and Iames Crowe as alternates. Mr. Taylor is coaching the boys and we are sure he will develop a fine team. ln the first match the team won handily over Weaver by a score of 12-6. Other matches are sought with East Hartford, Hartford and West- minister. All home matches will be played on the Farmington Country Club course.

The second team, made up of Captain Lesiak, B. Ryan, Morrissey, W. Ryan, Anderson, Wilde and Saunders played twelve games, winning 10 and losing but 2. All but W. Ryan and Saunders will be available for next year's team. The season was brought to a close on the High School court with an amateur tournament in which two F. H. S. teams took part. Although all the other six teams were made up of high school graduates and considerably older and more experienced players, the high school teams made a fine showing. Team A was eliminated in the finals by Unionville, the winner, which also defeated team B in the semi-finals. Team A defeated the Farmington Trian- gles and the Pan-Am quintet, while team B defeated the West-ends of Unionville. Orchestra The Farmington High School orchestra was reorganized this year under the capable supervision of Mr. Ellis and Mrs. Curtis. The musicians in the orchestra have increased from five or six in the last few years to an orchestra of nineteen pieces. This interest shown in orchestral music is due to good directing, talented musicians and a spirited student body. The orchestra played at the annual Christmas pageant under the direction of Mrs. Curtis, and at the Parent-Teachers' program under Mr. Ellis, besides entertaining the student body at several assemblies. The musicians are: Cora Porter and Howard Hinman, piano: M. Cignoli and E. Porter, first violins, B. Kennedy, S. Parsons, Ebba Nelson, R. Beissner, 1. Driscoll, I. Zurles and D. Hinman, second violinsg W. Dull, banjo: P. DeParolis, mandolin: W. Wells, cornet: F. Cignoli, First saxophone: C. Brooks, Bass and H.

'32, 46 FARMINGTON STUDENT Baseball As the baseball season takes place after this publication, we can usually do no more than give the prospects of the team. But this year we were fortu- nate in having two games played prior to publication, which makes the predic- tion easier for the writer, As the first game resulted in an 8-5 win over the powerful Thomaston nine, we can justly expect a very successful season. The team showed remarkable batting strength, while Pat McMahon showed mid- season form on the mound, bearing down well in the pinches and fanning twelve men. The second game with Terryville was won also by the score of 9-6, McMahon again being the winning pitcher. It was certainly a snappy looking outfit, and it flashed characteristic "Murphy" pep in both games. Keep it up, boys, were all behind youl TEAM Manager-C. CADWELL BRONSON TOTH MCMAHON BRAMAN I.

BERTRAM PELTIER CLASS MOTTO CLASS COLORS "In Omrzia Paratusu Blue and Silver The Senior Class of 1932 Started off its final year with an impetus and a determination to raise the necessary funds for the Washington trip. ln accord- ance with this plan the class play, "Sonny lane," was given with the following cast: Richard Petersen, Edith Anderson, Mildred Iudd, Helen Hartigan, Marion Tallmadge, Mildred Winalski, Carol Skoglund, Margaret Herzog, Robert Saunders, Bertram Peltier, Frank Cadwell and Henry Dobrynski. Within a couple of years we think that Garbo and Barrymore will have to look to their laurels, for A'Sonny lane" convinced us of the high value of High School Dramatics, We have not confined our activities, however, to plays alone. Athletics have played a leading role in our Class program, a fact evident from the teams, where were found the names of Lauretti, Toth, F. Cadwell, Dobrynski, C. Cadwell, Ryan, Saunders and Peltier. Among the fair sex we list the names of Marie Derby, Mildred Roncaioli, Nellie Zurles, Sophie Ostroske, Irene Campion, Alma Bailey, Amy Farry, Helen Battista, Pauline lanes and Gertrude Flood. Then, too, our food sales Secured many of the much-heralded vitamins for the townspeople and brought us some welcome funds for our treasury. For the generous Support accorded us by the people of the Town of Farmington we are deeply grateful. In closing, the class of '32 cordially extends an invitation to parents and friends to attend its commencement exercises Iune 15-17, a memorable event this year because of the fiftieth anniversary of the first graduation.

SAMUEL ROBOTHAM Editor . . . , CAROL BROOKS CLASS Morro CLASS COLORS "Labor Ornnia Vinci!" Orange and Black Under the guidance of our Class Advisor, Mr. Murphy, we have had a very Successful year. On April 1 the Iunior Prom was given, which proved to be a Social and financial success, while we were very proud of the fact that so many Iuniors attended the dance. We are now working on plans for the annual Iunior play, which will probably be presented about the last of May. 48 FARMINGTON STTUCFECNT The Iunior Class has been well represented in athletics by both girls and boys: several Iunior girls receiving letters for playing on the hockey team. A large number of members on the football team were Iuniors, who also received letters. During the winter we witnessed many thrilling basketball games in which members of our class played remarkably well. And now, with spring, we see the baseball and track teams out for practice with the same group of Iuniors present, ready to participate in whatever comes along. And here we must not fail to mention the golf team, which also has its quota of the class of 33. Several members of our class play in the orchestra, and we have reason to be proud of the number of boys and girls who belong to the Glee Clubs, and of the work that two of our class have done on the debating team. The honor roll has held a large percentage of Iunior names for both honors and honorable mention. We hope that there will be a longer list of names there next year. CAROL C. BROOKS, '33.

As the term wore on, however, a few changes took place in our membership column. Iohn Pring, who is to be in Florida, temporarily, left in November, while Irene Drury rejoined our ranks in Ianuary after having been absent for a year, The basketball, football and hockey teams claimed an exceptionally large number of our students, many of whom received athletic letters as a reward. The Glee Clubs, also were greatly enlarged upon by the Sophomore Class membership. Ianuary 29 Saw the Sophomore Hop successfully managed and a Social fete of the year. A large Silhouette in the center of the stage in the audi- torium which was decorated in black and white was one of the chief attractions. To realize that we are keeping our motto well in mind one need only to glance down the list of names on the Honor Roll, where many members of the class are listed.

We started the school year with a will to work and conquer all things. With eagerness we have busied ourselves at our games as well as at our studies. In September we were heartily welcomed into the high school. Later the Iunior High School girls organized a hockey team. This first hockey team, consisting mostly of Freshman girls, developed several star players. During practice the Iunior girls kept the Senior team on their toes every moment of the game. The boys also were awake during this season. They formed a soccer team, With Mr. Smith as their coach, the boys enjoyed their new sport. In their games they won success. When the basketball season opened, many of the ninth grade boys and girls came out to do their best. The girls became skillful with the aid of their coach, Miss Ames. The boys were successful in this favored sport. Not one lost interest during the whole season. The Girls' Glee Club gave an afternoon tea this year for teachers of the High School and the members of the Club. Miss Osborne and Mrs. Curtis helped in carrying out the plans. Everyone was pleased with the successful results. During the whole year many names appeared on the Honor Roll, the following winning the honor of grading as the first four: Mary Babic, Mary Brown, Shirley Thompson and Anna Kaprusak.

During the year, however, Ben Hoxie left for Bulkley High, while Raymond and Iohn Aquatto joined us, so that we now boast of thirty-three members. The class has contributed a goodly share of the names on the Honor Roll and at the same time has played an extensive part in all the social activities of the year. With this splendid foundation, we are eagerly looking forward to our Freshman year and the changes it will bring in the daily routine of school life. ELSIE NORGARD.

Our class is creditably represented in the Iunior High Glee Club and has taken a great interest in the creation of the auditorium programs given each Friday morning by various classes. This has stirred up a great deal of enthu- siasm, besides giving each member an opportunity to exhibit his or her ability to entertain and at the same time acquire self-confidence. Although we have taken an active part in the social life of the school we have not neglected our lessons, as the Honor Roll for the year reveals.
