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
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

responsibility to build greater structures and reach greater
heights than those who now leave, to join the
ranks of the forgotten.

E, the class of 1957, being of sound mind
and body, do declare our last will and testament. To
the faculty, we leave not only our best wishes, but
the innumerable incidents that make Fieldston more
than just a school. Do not let this jocularity mask
the deep respect that we hold for our faculty. Their
contributions to our lives have been invaluable.
Besides imparting to us the wisdom of the past,
they have taught us how to prepare for the future.
To exhibit our gratitude, we hereby do bequeath to

This year, for a change, the Yearbook has decided
to let someone who knows about the Student Council
write about it. 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-
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
"fm ti T 2
, W' li is ,fl
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.

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
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. Fred is expecting his draft notice, Jill has been deported
to Greenwich Village, John and Dan are still being hounded by a well-known

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

ful antl influential of the stuclents. of eourse, were
those eonstituents like Roh Kimhall, who soon

One dictionary dehnition of a festival reads: A
season devoted periodically to some form of enter-
tainment. 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

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
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.

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. Andy Kahr's Constitutional Revi-

sions Committee ground out a respectable set of by-laws,
and Tom Delbanco, as Treasurer, led the Finance Committee
through an amicable year of pennypinching.
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

By Christmas vacation, we were ready to

For two weeks we put aside books and gave up

Second form is a new experience which involves
making decisions. Of course, the biggest one is
whether to become mademoiselles and monsieurs or
senoritas and senores. Despite the scattered groans
over language homework and harder work, we learn
that one of the main requirements of the year is fun.
We feel superior and very sophisticated as com-
pared to the first form. We chair the committees

Relieved of our duties as tormentors of the First

fighting it out for third. The lively shooting of
Delbanco and Bob Kimball were big assets.
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. With the loss of former track
lettermen to baseball and tennis, the team had to
rely on juniors and sophomores for the bulk of

who ran the half mile. 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

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
During one summer, Jane K. and Margo D. added the continental
touch to their femme fatal-ity KNO wonder Wesley O. left for Cali-
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
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
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.
'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
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
'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."
