Q Q The following pages strive to reveal HQ, the simplicity of the modern - and the value of the old. ia? If the contrast between the new age, F ieldston 'N 5-5 of today, 2 and the traditional, the school of our founders, sparks imagination and leads to greater inspiration, the book has well-fulfilled its goals. i f fwnrmwff To the sixth form, a group of young people who have struggled and hrought to fruition a noble idea inaugurated over eighty years ago, is this volume dedicated. To the underclassmen, this chronicle clocks oii another mile in thc journey of formal education. The road to commencement still stretches out ahead. It can hardly be amiss, then, for us to urge upon those who turn these pages to dwell upon this record, not alone in pride of present accomplishment, but also in hope of future attainment. The Seniors have given over their mantle of authority and responsibility. lt is their hope that you will accept and justify this trust. Certainly, your task is to preserve the inheritance left to yous-and, yet, more important, is the responsibility to build greater structures and reach greater heights than those who now leave, to join the ranks of the forgotten. 5 P I Ex rxx 5' N-.X 4 S' '?'A' ,.

The editors felt it should have a personal touch, and, in a radical departure from tradition, have asked me to sign the article. This has not been a year of sensational proposals, nor has it been a year of bitter controversy. The Council has maintained and promoted peaceful rela- tionships with everybody, with the possible excep- tion of the Fieldston News. Well, you may ask, just what has the Student Council done this year? When the Class of '57 took over the reins of Student Government, we were immediately faced with an emergency. The Rec Room was closed, and the Student Body was starving! To re-open the Rec Room, the Council entered into a successful pub- licity campaign, and the responsibility for keeping the Rec. Room clean was placed with the students themselves. lt worked, and stomachs stopped grum- bling. The big job for the Council this year was putting the By-Laws in workable form. This marked the end of a project that began in 1954-. For the past three years, the Council has been working under rules that depended on the memories of the execu- tive oflicers. These laws were ambiguous and often disregarded. In order for the Council to function efficiently, it must have a firm foundation. This year's Council established that foundation. Every law that has been written in the past few years was incorporated into the By-Laws and presented to - i I eva- ,W "fm ti T 2 as . .rw Q f , W' li is ,fl f ss. X, X: the Council in printed form. The Council then acted on these Laws with a surprisingly small amount of quibbling. As a result, the Class of ,ST is proud to give the Class of 758 a working Constitution. This year also saw the rejuvenation of the Com- mittee and Club system. Under the expert direction of Committee Co-ordinator Steve Kass and Club Co-ordinator Bob Kimball, most of the Committees and Clubs functioned at maximum efhciency. One of the Councilis first acts was to give the clubs more meeting time. As a result. the woeful attendance at many Clubs increased, and in some cases almost doubled. The one tragedy in the Club and Com- mittee system was the long suffering House Com- mittee. which was disbanded. The Council decided that House Committee's functions should be made a part of the Work Program, thus ending that Com- mitteeis long struggle to stay alive. The Community Service held another successful and profitable Sacrifice Meal for T'NlCEF. ln short, thc Student Council carried out its basic function, to coordinate and strengthen all the branches of the Student Government. rw. .JL A ' wa , Q n . ,aff puumuer or too oi- t me r,l,iQ,dh M, J lhtf zneuzbershxi ol the Chorus is ,, .Fl .I .ip . . l 1 .

Or ls It? Actually, one needs both in the process of compiling a literary publication at the Fieldston School. In addition to these fundamental tools of communication, the Editors and Staffs of the current chronicles in circulation must also be equipped with a mechanical smile, a bottle of Miltown, and a big stick. As you know, the Fieldston News Editorship was predominantly male in Walter Daum and Alan Berger. ln spite of their inherent virility and strength of character, the burden and strain of their respective positions have left their mark. Poor Walter is greying, and Alan has gambled away his salary in card- games on the Washington trip and at the race-track. He has also been perman- ently dwarfed by the blows he received from our own President l"Queen Alioevl Kinzler. We now refer our more complacent readers to the present state of the Editor of the Lit. Mag. This years "New Inklingsv was conceived in the sweat and blood of an unknown-Dick Brown. Finally, may we call your attention to the condition of your very own year- book editors: As the pictures on page sixty indicate, the diligent sextet has reverted to senility.

W YYVW lfarly on the morning of February 20th, some sixty-hve knowledge-seeking seniors and five teach- ers gatherefl on the steps of Midtown and prepared to initiate the annual Washington trip. The purpose of this trip is to give the seniors an opportunity to witness government in action and thereby gain a hetter perspective of how our eountry is run. Of eourse, the seniors flirt more than just view great huilrlings. Perhaps the most heneficial part of the trip was a ehanee to ohserve eongressional eom- miltees in aetion. The elass saw Senator javits testify on eivil rights legislation. several oil executives speak on the oil situation as a result of the Suez erisis. anml others on equally important suhjeets. Most of the seniors also managed to speak to at least one representative or senator ancl therehy hetter nnmlerstanal the worlcl's prohlems. The most sueeess- ful antl influential of the stuclents. of eourse, were those eonstituents like Roh Kimhall, who soon gained aeeeptanee as an olheial Wasliirigtcnii lohhy.

This definition is applicable to only one phase of Fieldston's institution, the Festival. As first formers we look forward to working on our first festival to see what it is like. We find that it is a time to work creatively, to attempt a Hnished performance which at the beginning of rehearsals seemed impossible. We realize, perhaps for the first time, that there is more to a play than just acting- there is the scenery, the lighting, the costumes, all of which must be perfect. We discover that Working together can be fun and how many of our friends have talents that up to now have been undiscovered. This year the first form decided to put on Gilbert and Sullivan's entertaining "H.M.S. Pinaforen. With the help of Miss Tomasone, Mr. Werthman and the members of the Art Department, the production was quite a success. The acting was excellent, the singing was superb, and the sets were delightful. Among those in lead roles were Nancy Wolfe, Susan Harvey, Bob Levy, Charles Braun, Jane Lon- tinez, Nora Kan, Margie Bessin, Ed Gaines, Jay Lagemann, Danny Jaffee, and Chris Flory. Now the First formers take their seats in the audi- torium to watch other festivals, only to rise again in their senior year for their final showing before graduation. H. M. S. PINAFCJRE April hfth was the date for both the premiere and last performance of The Crucible by the Fieldston Players, a nolablc oll'-Riverdale Avenue troupe. This play was originally produced on Broadway during the V152 season and was writtcn by Arthur Miller. husband of Nlarily n. This most recent performance of the play was directed, produced, cast, cut. etc., by liaphaela Tomasonc. ol' former Fieldston fame. Her Barnaby and lfirllzrlay of the lnfanta arc but two in the long line of distinguished productions ...... The female If-mls were divided among Nettie l.ccf. Louise I.ilSSt'l', and Joanna Bulova. The leading men were Alan Berger. Richard Brown, Tom Del- banco. lfrilt llollman and Bob Kimball. The cast was a large one, including about thirty seniors. Miss Tomasone did not double-cast many of the large parts in hopes of improving the quality of the per- formances of those in both performances. The play. taking place in Salem. Mass.. at the time of the witch-trials, centers about the efforts of a spitcful young girl to rid the man she loves of his wife. Unhappily. she rids herself of the man she loves, causing the sentencing to death of many in- nocent people. The actual plot. however, is incidental to the major point that the author was trying to convey to the public . . . the ease with which truth can be distorted and fear takes the place of ration- ality. Many people take The Crucible to be a parody of the happenings during the reign of the Senator from Yvisconsin. Although the theme of the play was a serious one, the seniors had a gay time putting it on and the audience seemed to enjoy it greatly. THE CRUCIBLE I -UL D SJ W COMMUNITY SERVICE Mary Ellen Weisl Margaret Tager Although the Student Council is the most important single body in student affairs at Fieldston, the committee and club system constitutes easily the most important and vital part of our student government. Committees this year, under the supervision of Committee Co-ordinator Steve Kass, participated in a great variety of activities. Mickey Class handled the Internal Arrange- ments Committee, which provided the school with illuminat- ing and interesting assemblies. Mike Rosenberg and Al Berger chaired the Boys' Sports Committee, which was in charge of varsity letter awards and an enlarged C.O. card program. The International Committee, under the leadership of Betsy Ardwin, helped the school learn about UNICEF and the U.N. Jill Behrens and Pat Weill, as chairmen of the House Committee, took charge of the maintenance of the rec room, and the problem of ushers at school events. The G.A.O., under the direction of ,lane Dretzin and Peggy Freedman, co-ordinated the gym department, the girls, and the Fathers and Daughters. Margo Zimmermanis Social Committee plan- ned and ran the school's parties so that they afforded enjoy- ment for all. Jane Kaplan and Sheila Benow chaired the Publicity Committee, which ably presented, in graphic terms, slogans and appeals. The Community Service Committee, under the direction of Mary Ellen Weisl, collected needed dollars for worthy groups.

The Club System, under the guiding hand of Club Co- ordinator Bob Kimball, flourished in its second full year of being. Talented thespians performed with the Drama Club. Bob Jervis and Fred Siegal developed the Photography Club, which presented exhibits for the enjoyment of the entire school. Debates on current problems were staged by John Lipkin and Tom Landsberg in the Current Events and Debat- ing Club. The Chess Club, while harbouring some tourna- ment ringers, gave many students a chance to test and de- velop their skill at chess. The Music Club gave an opportunity for students to hear and study all types of good music. The Model Railroad Club, under the direction of Henry Spotnitz, afforded excellent training for future followers of Casey Jones. .M r bv an 'bfi 'H'-'V .

The varsity forwards were Diane Finney, Peggy Freedman, Elena Citkowitz. lrene Kotlar, and Lynn Silver, while Sue wimp- fheimer, Janice Bell, Elena Kan. Phyllis Picker. and Nancy Mirkin played guard. Led by captains Tom Delbanco and Marty Lowy, the boys' tennis team came up to coach Ottr Bait- t-nger's expectations and had a successful season.

Girls' tennis was captained by Sue Sherman and coached by Pat Katzenstein. Seniors ,lane Dretzin, Diane Finney and Gail Emerson, Juniors Linda Berman and Elena Kan contributed to the teamis success. Both tennis teams practiced and played home matches at Keltonis. The Fieldston Nine, playing its traditional rivals, turned in many a fine performance. Led by co' captains Terry Davidson and Bobby Stein, and bolstered by senior Erik Hoilman, the mound staff threw admirably. With veterans Joe Blinick behind the plate, Dick Marcus and Charlie Tobey in the infield, and Gary Manacher in the outfield, plus several newcomers, the team, coached by Bob Mur- phy of Manhattan College, was victorious. Plagued with weaknesses in the sprints and the field events Alton Smith's track team nevertheless had a good season.

The climax of the season was the Fieldston Relays, which is rapidly becoming the area's most respected invitational meet. The nine member golf team. captained by senior jim Penzell and coached by a Manhattan College student, had three seniors who formed its backbone: Fred Ohringer, Steve Kent and Steve Kurtin. They were supplemented by juniors Mike Kreisberg and Al Lindeman, and fourth formers Larry Levine and Bill Cohen. The team practiced at Van Cort- landt and played its home matches at the Vernon Hills Country Club. The Cheerleaders, led by Irene Kotlar and Connie Ehrlich, did a great job sparking up the fall and winter sports. Above the noisy excitement of the football and soccer games, and in spite of inclement weather, could be heard "When youire up, youire up . . .l" The squad had to get used to the new gym for the basketball season, but made the transi- tion painlessly enough. ,lust as the girls had started to get into the swing of it, however, it was time to teach the cheers to the anxious bunch of new recruits.

SENIOR HISTGRY This Senior Class, a hale and hearty band, can boast a career of sedulous, unstinting joie de vivre. With the Aegis of Knowledge held proudly aloft, these ex-neophytes of the Lower School have thrown caution and tradition to the winds. The History of the Class of '57 is a recital of experiments in both academic and social spheres. It is a record of the many changes that have taken place during these six years at Fieldstong it is filled with sundry jokes and misinterpre- tations, but we hope that for the graduating class it will recapture some of those priceless moments-that they will be remembered long after the irregular verbs and theorems hav been forgotten. "There,ve been some changes .... 7, . . . "Nose news was good newsf' as Gail E., Judy C., and Caren H. appeared as new faces. By 6th form, Wendy had chickened out twice and Sue K. was eagerly awaiting the event. Louise L. changed from '4lVlettle Mouthw to an lpana girl, and instead of becoming Mrs. Berger, Sue R. changed her name to Debbi. Under Mrs. Anclrew's influence, Hugh S. became "Tertius7, and HMatzo Ball" is now Duke Manacher, II. During one summer, Jane K. and Margo D. added the continental touch to their femme fatal-ity KNO wonder Wesley O. left for Cali- fornia.j Somewhere along the way, we traded Gail Chasin for Johnny lluot and Hringersn Grossman and Daum came, saw, and crushed the ucrimsonl' hopes of many a lad. Naomi arrived and took over the intellectual set, and soft-voiced Ohringer out-whispered the origi- nal quiet-Fred. The biggest shock of 6th form was when Fred S. beat Q D Dave G. twice in Chemistry tests. ' 5th form came and the big question was "Who's Dick Brown?,' 6th form and Midge K. was heard muttering, "Who does Dick B. think he is?', The animal element in the form showed itself when we became the school guinea pigs. Not only did we get the first Fourth-form midterms, but we also inaugurated the new festival system. "We knew that we could do it and indeed we did .... " . . . The first such triumph was rendered by Gail C. at Hudson Guild when she broke lSva's reign of terror by expounding a most stupen- dous sneeze in the still of the night and Ann G. was the poison ivy queen .... Marcy K. finally graduated from comic books to Mickey Spillane, remembering to mark all the good spots .... Despite his gargantuan appetite, Ricky S. managed to fit sveltly el t"""i into those pegged pants .... Nancy G.'s dreams about a Spanish caballero were just short of prophetic, and Margo Z. finally found her Knitch, nobody knows what there were more of--'crushesi or argyle socks. Nita and Deanne, quite without trouble, became the form aunts, and Mary Ellen was the first to be accepted at a college. . . . Ralph cornered the stock market, but alas, never won a Cadillac for his troubles. "There's no business like show business .... H We learned this quite early when Jack W. pooh-bahed it and Bitsy A. pitti-sing-ed it. In the year of the Eddy Fisher craze, Lorna and Judy L. headed the parade .... 6'Barnaby" came to town, and every- body else left. Though the play closed after only two performances, Nettie L., Sue F., Jane F., and Bob K. received Oscars on their rather hurried way out. John L. gave a haunting performance and Dick L. put on the dog twice. The Seniors were considering giving 6'Barnabus ReX,', but Miss Tomasone talked them out of it. Sth form and Tommy D. fiddled while the dining room Went up in smoke .... Jo B. danced to the music of Elvis, one-pelvis band, and Fieldston went High Society as Jim P. and Terry emceed the best form party. Marty L. had b-y then established himself as the matinee idol. and Ellen shone aboye the general can-ophany as Danny' S. got Kyrie Eleison down on tape for posterity. The most annoying 6th form performer was Mickey C. as he fort-ed many seniors to those 9:15 breakfast parties . . . and then made the last rows leave first. 4'Love is the reason for it all. . . . . . . One thing our form never needed was a social director. though Mr. Bassett tried many times.. . . lane D. and beau set the style in lst form by founding two-man spin the bottle-sans bottle .... 3rd form was the year of Diane's de Swaan song. We wondered about Marge T. as she meandered through the halls muttering "Love me. love my' dogii, and why' was Sheila so fond of the joke. "Shake hands with my' ten foot friend. Harvey-"? Bathsheba Weill didn't have to resort to public bathing to win her David. and Steve Kent won his Emmy' award without too much trouble. Andy' O. showed his etchings in both his country' house. and the newsroom and Linda L. did it all by' the sea .... ln oth form the parking problem became so acute that Judy K. had to park her car in Harvard Yard. and Barbara H. Ialias Betty' Co-edt shoel-ted us all by' hnally' settling down and becoming pinned. 'Jay 'LWe're gonna rack 'em up .... " . . . Victor, after his report in Mrs. Landis, class, was referred by the group in unison to certain hallowed walls for further enlightenment. . . . Sue S. was either our worst or our best student that year, for she was always staying after school. "Little Eva" got back at Alan F. when she overturned his desk in 2nd form-the room was Hooded with debris .... 5th form and a new student was added to Mr. Brownas English class-Isaac Stern .... Don R. won the Distinguished Service Medal by invoking the 5th amendment in Ethics. Colonel Bockner rocked History class when he tried to bribe JAS with Confederate money, and Brenda barked up the wrong tree when she thought Beowulf was originally in French. Leave it to Jessie to be the only girl in auto mech .... Hot-Rod-Hayes, bane of Otto's existence, whizzed out of Riverdale on two wheels with Eric J. yelling, "Faster,,7 in the back seat. Tim S., the best driver in his class, didn't pass his test .... "We,re still gonna rack ,em up . . ." . . . Kurty, our great swimmer, headed the parade as the first All- American in F ieldston History .... Frank led the boys en masse in a fistfight against belligerent Barnardites, and Tom L. won a cigar in soccer. Terry was a star basketball player, despite the absence of attire at his debut. Mil and Mike rocked the football team along in style. Brittle-Bones Stein was decapitated as he hit his head on the basket rim, and Steve Kass paced the tennis team. Eric H. fur- thered F ieldston's contribution to the National Pastime fbaseballj. Several female gladiators were carried home on their shields. In hockey, Peggy, Sue W. and Lynn spoke softly and carried big sticks. Irene H. and Linda G. headed the swimmers, through no strokes of luck, and Jane N. and Betsy L. champed it volley-ball style .... Minute Cheerleaders Irene K. and Connie E. were always seen below the rest. Judy H. cheered instead of going to the yearbook meetings, and Jill B. went to the yearbook meetings instead of going to the games. In the non-varsity sports, Alan F. and Alice R. carried the ping- pong duels far into the night, and Elena yodeled her way down many a mountainside. 'Vfhanks for the memories .... i' With the added responsibilities of the senior year, the form became aware of the impending graduation. College choices were the topic of discussion from Sept. 'til June. Alice, as Madame President, and Alan B., as Editor, soon began trading brickbats. Nicky, in his white lab-coat, was 'the man in the white coat.' The Washington trip came and went and the elections for school officers gave us that antiquated, out-dated feeling. The Senior play came, and then it was time for graduation. "If it rains, it'll be the first time. But then again, we were the form for a lot of Firsts."
