OR reasons still unknown, this year saw an unusually lively interest and increase in participation in almost all branches of student government. School spirit, often lagging in past years, came to the fore many times in widely varying activities. In an assembly at the very beginning of the year, the student body was introduced to Field- ston's many extra-curricular activities. This sparked a highly successful year for most committees and clubs, with a sharp rise in lower form membership, showing promise for future extra-curricular leadership. Early in the year, a work day was held, and because of its success, the Work Program planned to make this an annual event. Perhaps the greatest mass show of school spirit occurred late in the fall when almost half the school rode out to Wloodmere to cheer our teams to a double victory. In the Student Council itself, the smoking problem was in the spotlight for a large part of the year. The final decision, reached after many stormy meetings and several equally thunderous editorials, was to move fifth and sixth form smoking from the dining room to the Rec. Room. The council also passed an important bill limiting succession among council representatives in the hrst four forms, in the hope of preparing a wider selection of students for eventual leadership. Midway in the year, Treasurer John Leubs- dorf, Fieldston's answer to Alexander Hamilton, devised a scheme by which the Council, without any effort and, of course, keeping entirely within the law, could pick up an ad- ditional 3180 per year. No Student Council would be complete without some sort of debate on the Rec Room. But it was the Administration, not the Council, that provided this year's fireworks. With the removal of the vending machines and the return to the buffet system, the Rec Room was left open for the student body to use as it saw fit. Since the Council was unable to come to a definite decision, it remains for the class of '60 to find a use for the room. But the Council did succeed in improving the recreational atmos- phere in the room by providing two new indestructible ping-pong tables, with racquets. Among other accomplishments, the Council prepared and reprinted the By-laws, and the Administration adopted a Council proposal to allow students to take part in administering student suspensions through a Student-Faculty Committee. Operating against a background of solid support and cooperation from students of all forms, the Council was able more easily to carry out its basic jobs, so that a construc- tive and enjoyable year was made possible. file FOOTBALL Top Row-Left to Right-Allen Ross, Peter Meltzer, Managers, Ray Darby, Peter Rutkoff, Tom Strauss, Farrow Allen, Coach George Martens, Jay Almour, Danny Rottenberg, Doug Lowy, Bill Glauber, Bob Rosen, Dave Rob- bins, Paul Weinstein, David Kann, Managers Peter Rothman and Kay Radin. Middle Row-Ass't Coach Chet Gusick, Bob Like the proverbial snowball which, as it rolls, grows in both size and velocity, the Eagles, captained by "Pat" Mungin and "Mother Goose" Weber, built from a seem- ingly poor season a more impressive one of 7 four wins and two defeats. Experience, rather than touchdowns, were acquired at games with Locust Valley and E. M. A. If these losses were bitter pills, they were vitamin-supplying ones, for from then on, the Kingmen fsparked by the image of the Little Kings grandmotherj were uncon- uerable.

SOCIAL COMMITTEE If Fieldston's students have ever needed encouragement to pur- sue their social arts, this committee has supplied the occasions for all to charm and be charmed. For dancers with vigor and endurance who didn't care to lindy, the Folk Dance was inaugurated. And for those anxious to forget midyears, there was a Winter Carnival. The chef d'oeuvre of these versatile planners was the elaborate Com- mencement Dance, held, if not in Madison Square Garden, at least in spacious Fieldston School. Hope Finney and Gail Karsh led the committee. -' 3, 5: I '92-M 'gif 0 fag nl 97? 5 I ' the ga tif? W . K -st Zlxliiqf x if .psi r 'TLFSV ' n 'Lui COMMUNITY SERVICE COMMITTEE "May youth by service nobler grow." Here the Fieldston students grew, if only callouses, from stapling pledge cards. Led by Millie Rapp and Steve Shapiro, the mem- bers of the Community Service Committee gave aid, both directly and financially, to agencies in the New York area and more lately to the entire country. Some planned ways to help the Indians of the West, while the Saturday morning Riverside teams ride herd on the West Side Indians here at home. CURRENT EVENTS CLUB Besides displaying cryptic notes on bul letin boards, the Current Events Club under took the vital task of deciding how certair countries should proceed with foreign af fairs. The fact that many world transaction: went contrary to the club's rulings only in fused a spark of suspense and vigorous de bate into meetings. Meanwhile, to enlighter those who read the news no further that the headlines, this club and its chairmen Ira Hammerman and Kord Lagemann, pro vided films and speakers for the entire school LIBRARY COMMITTEE A fruitless search for members marked this year for the Library Committee. In vain did its public relations man, Rachel Blau 1 also the chairmanb, plaster printed ads around school. "There is only one Library Committee, ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTESV' a notice proclaimed. "And only one mem- ber," added a Fieldston humorist. Yet, while exchanging the popular mob scene for a more modest type of meeting, this commit- tee of four effectively assisted Mr. Mann, its advisor, in the choice of new library books. Q 7 -ie- if X f"""" fs .idltwwl INTERNAL ARRANGEMENTS COMMITTEE If the fog of our Monday morning-itis is oft'times dispelled by the stirring words of a prominent speaker or by a film whose innate fascination compensates for the sleep- producing darkness of the auditorium, it is through the noble efforts of this committee. The parade of Sheiks and Prime Ministers which has greeted us at assemblies was the result of committee meetings in which the mirth produced by the antics of the chaii- men, Nat Kwit and Toni Halpern, was no less stimulating than were the assemblies planned. INTERNATIONAL COMMITTEE From the ambitious title of this group, one might gather that among the varied tasks of the Field- ston student government is one of attending to the need of foreign na- tions. On the contrary, the students, recognizing their own needs to learn in more detail about the rest of the world, have found here the opportunity. Choosing Israel as a pilot project, the committee, chaired by Ginny Galton and Lynn Good- win, became experts on the coun- try's problems. An informal talk with an Israeli student added ro their understanding. x - 1 S . aa. 'V Aja kk 1 6 . ,v , V A . K, i . - N 1. r , x I 1, 1 ,ms . qu V.

The editors were backed by a strong bench, as the staff box reached a record length. Despite a rained-out issue when the press broke down, and a rise in yearly rates, the New: re- tained its strong following. Bill Mulfinger took Mr. Spiegal's place and built up a high slugging aver- age with the female fans, while Mr. Riegert remained the mentor and mainstay of the publication. The editorial problem blazed over the smoking problem, and it was even suggested that a mini- ature dining room be set up for smoking in the Newt room, but Mr. Brown's sobering influence kept the Newt "O. K. S. B." WORK PROGRAM A wrapperless Rec Room, a leafless quadrangle, an unblem- ished blackboard, an immaculately alligned 821-all these sights on Freidenberg and Mel Mungin, has to the Work Program. A rapidly growing institution, the Work Pro- gram, chaired this year by Bob Freidenberg and Mel Mungin, has been increasingly successful in san- itizing Fieldston. Quadrangle ground is no longer pollutedg quad- rangle air is another matter. Al- though the principle of breath-and- nose holding has been found an ef- fective measure against smoke, the evasion of soggy post-school guided missiles is not yet a science . . . but rag-ducking will come. In a more serious vein, the Work Program has accomplished much that is con- structive, and the well directed money made through students' work has been well-earned. !llC"Il""C.'F'1II Kendall T.

Despite cramped quar- ters in a former storage room, the club has finished the first track work. Its optimistic chairman, Sam Howell, believes that by 1965 twhen, no doubt, model sputniks will be more in fashionb, the entire system will have been completed.

He also lecture on many aspects of radio theory, whic members supplemented with study of thei own. "Calling cards" from hams all over th world represent the international contact of the club. GIRLS' ATHLETIC ORGANIZATION Playing hostess to tired businessmen ana other fathers in its semi-annual parties, thi G.A.O. had an energetic career under Sybi Frankenthal and Rona Hirsch. The Organiza tion bounced its way through a series of gyn department decisions determining such mat ters as the election of the managers of girl: teams. Lack of middle school member threatened the committee with extinction but the existing group valiantly carried ol its work of assisting Pat and entertaining Pop. BOYS' SPORTS COMMITTEE Besides providing us with discounts at cores we'd never heard of, the Boys' Sports Iommittee concerned itself with the be- :owal of -letters on eager and long-suffering thletes. In this realm, the committee, led by lllan Shedlin, determined letter require- ments and certified letter applicants. It was esponsible also for the famous storming of Voodmere by more Fieldstonites than had ttended such a game in fifteen years. Cover- J-cover readers of this book will find fre- uent mention of this historic event. Q- xi PUBLICITY COMMITTEE Madison Avenue has been transplanted Lx Fieldston's art room!

A S x CHESS CLUB The huddled creatures with rapt gaze who ply wooden figures no less mobile than themselves and over whom tardy students stumble while trying to slip unobtrusively into a class are no less than out- growths of this club. If their power of concentration is great on the stairway at one minute of nine, it is greater still during regular Mon- day marathons under head wood- pusher Eric Craven. Here the club develops the tactical ingenuity that enabled it to gain an appropriation from the Student Council to join the U. S. Chess Federation. L. FIRST FORM FESTIVAL No sooner had the First Form- ers learned to distinguish their classmates from their second form neighbors than they donned dis- guises to confuse themselves but de- light the school with their First Form Festival. Continuing a six- year tradition, the form joined with Mr. Werthman and Miss Tomasone to transport the fancy and fantasy of a Gilbert and Sullivan operetra to Fieldston. This year, the majesty of japan was revealed to the school in The Mikado with an oriental atmosphere lent by lanterns sus- pended precariously, but none the less exotically, over the heads of the students. While those First Formers endowed with unusual musical talent portrayed the leading roles, the rest of the form became schoolgirls, noblemen, handmaid- ens, and executioners. THE FIELDGLASS In September, a naive but eager Fieldglarr staff planned great and marvelous things. In October, a Wiser, but still undaunted, bunch learned about printers' deadlines. Thereafter, work, in earnest now, was punctuated by the editors' anguished cries over "missing" items, the number of hours in a day, etc. Barbara laughed at Ruthie's collection of lists, Howie and Marc camera-clicked, Nancy counted and organized, Jeannie let- tered, jane sold plastic book covers to augment the dwindling photo fund, and Emmy made phone calls. March came and went, and all lived to tell about it iso there, Mr. Brown!J. In addition to its other notable achievements of preserving for pos- terity a candid faculty and a well- scrubbed class of '59, the Fieldglarr taught many of the terrible trials and the rich rewards of publication. Disregarding the fact that College Board Achievement Tests were only a few weeks away, two-thirds of the Sixth Form forewent several days of vacation cram time to participate in the traditional Washington trip. Since First Form, the class of '59 had been famed as a group possessing the desir- able quality of "togetherness," and this spirit persuaded a record number of seniors Cboth numerically and percentagewisej to brave the long bus ride. Visiting the nation's capital, of course, demanded a fair share of the groups time in the role of tourists. The usual peregrina- tions, in addition to a fifty flight climb of the Washington Monument, were taken to the Capitol, the Lincoln and jefferson Memo- rials, Mt. Vernon, et all Although this is all mandatory procedure, the most exhilarating moments were spent in hot, crowded rooms, listening to a group of fatigued and harried men and women expound on various issues. First, there was New Yorlc's senior senator, Jacob javits, who came from a series of seemingly interminable committee debates to give fhoughtful and concise answers to a wide range of student questions. CAfore- mentioned students were quite breathless, having stormed the Capitol stairs on the run after the escape of the buses with only half the form.J And there was Senator Keating on civil rights, reporters Alan and Nancy Emory, who expounded on local integration problems and the business of covering Washington, and even the President himself, whose press conference was attended by the ubiquitous Neufr editors. The ultra-prudent chaperones for the adventure made up a perfectly delightful sextet of Rosenthal, Norris, juka, Scott, Darby, and Nomer. K Y Y., K 5 ,fe r r ' + ?, '+ wf l gl 4 1 l 3 . QL ? 3 ?

The third quarter blues plagued the Boys' Basketball Team at the beginning. Play- ing excellent first half ball, they would lapse in the third quartet. Then the team picked up, with Bob Liss and Bill Cohen hitting from the outside. Richie Price supplied the drama for the Millermen with the fast breaks and clutch foul shooting which beat Walden in the final two seconds. Tom Strauss han- dled the backboards, and Captain Lew Gold- man, after recovering from a knee injury, lent needed support with his looping set shots and deceptive drives. Pete Som and Steve Ablon regularly gave their invaluable assistance as well. Splashing about in triangular meets only C a scheduling innovationb, the Swim- ming Team got its fill of chlorine while sail- ing through a mixed season. Leading the race were co-captains Nat Kwit and Dave Hellerstein, while Bob Abrams and Dave Stephenson rode the waves, setting new rec- ords in the free style and backstroke respec- tively. Although veteran Mermen jay Pob- liner, Bill Weber, Dick Levien, and Peter Klotz never acquired gills, they all turned in expert performances under the tutelage of Alton "Clarion" Smith. In the Fieldston In- vitationals, the swimmers placed high in the duodecimal competition.

The confidence and enthusiasm with which the Girls' Basketball Team gracefully took the floor was sparked this year not only by the captains, Toni Halpern and Ruth Neubauer, but by two feats of moment. One was outscoring Calhoun by a greater margin than the boys' team achieved against Bar- nard, the other was the well-witnessed con- test against the Fieldston Female Faculty, in which the "Hoopettes" were seen to blaze down the court with the teachers in pursuit. That the scandal-hungry News re- porters recorded the score as 300-27 in favor of the teachers did not diminish the team's ambition to challenge, someday, the male faculty. Stroking back into existence after last winter's hibernation, the Girls' Swimming Team, oblivious to the icy snow outside, en- joyed its season in the coo-ool pool. Last year, because of a lack of competition, the team was disbanded, but the cries of protest raised by disappointed old members and prospective new ones provided the incentive for a search for rivals. Caroline Legerman, the lone returning varsity swimmer, and junior Nina Zasorin were elected co-cap- tains. Inspired by the new coach, Edie Martins, and by its own aquatic talents, the team dove into its meets with a gusto one would expect only of a school of fish.

First of all, there was that day before school when we saw so many of your seniors. Were they truly once as bewildered as we? Anyway, we didn't actually get to know the seniors, but we met each other that day, so that when school began and everybody was sing- ing in your auditorium, we didn't mind. The first week, we met all your teach- ers, and that was fun!

But our girls be- came braver when they got used to all those roaring shop machines. The boys liked cook- ing spaghetti, and loved eating it. And they hnally found the way to that wrecked room where everyone plays milk-carton hockey. Were sorry we broke your tradition by giving our festival in February instead of December, but we managed to get into your Christmas sing anyway, by being French hens and turtle doves and things. Strutting on the stage was exciting, but it was more exciting learning to strut in pairs when you gave dancing lessons. - "'l r' .wx x..f H.. l lliillx at 11 And, ohl, we almost forgot about the work! What do those upper formers com- plain about? This was quite harmless, and we learned a lot, too. We guess it's because they're so old that they strain under their books-we only had nice ones. For instance, there was A Tale of Two Cilier, which was marvelous, except that you have to remem ber who the old characters are that keep pop- ping up. But after reading about Madame Defarge, we never pass a Sixth Form girl without being careful what we say. We suppose what made us feel most important was forging onward in our own particular interests.

But we reproach ourselves for such unseemly mirth at a time when our Hrst weighty decision approaches. Day and night we ponder, comparing the merits of French and Spanish. If our language courses are the most significant change from last year, they are not necessarily the most absorbing. ln Eng- lish we write poems on death and submit them to the Lit Mag. ln math we treat the quadrangle path as a stream whose width we must measure indirectly. ln social studies we find that the capital of Kansas is Topeka, not Dodge City, a fact which most upper formers have long forgotten. as Teachers of minors eye us as prospec- tive pupils and crowd our minds and hands with artistic techniques. We clatter breath- lessly up to music and float melodiously down. We mix unheard of colors in hne arts and discover a passage from the art room which we never dared to penetrate before. We fill the science building with delectable odors of cooking which the fourth formers infinitely prefer to formaldehyde. A spark of ambition glows within us. We romp on the fields during frees-no longer playfully, but purposefully, develop- ing our skill for our debut on the football or hockey team.

Long before Dawn had touched the East with her crimson hands, a goodly com- pany of young warriors was seen to descend into a dark cavern.

After many passings of Apollo's chariot across the sky, these lords became accus- tomed to the new ways. The young men learned to don khaki and crew-necked armor, while the women, as the custom was, went hunting. With lips as ruby red as the wine that was Elpenor's doom and stockings as black as Circe's magic, they baited traps for the great upper form beasts that roamed the corridors. Yet not all their time was spent in sports. Daily the new lords visited the courts of the gods with whom they played challenging games of the wits.

The club had the benefit of Arthur Miller's guitar, Rachel Blau's list of songs, and Dr. Scott's foot, which joyfully tapped out a calypso rhythm from the back of the room. A high spot was the annual "concert" by a professional folk singer, ln addition there were tune- ful discussions of spirituals and African songs and diverting com- parisons of folk singers' styles. - I ,J iii MUSIC CLUB Syncopated and symphonic strains ser enaded chance drifters near the resonant doo of the music room. Behind the roughlj grained slab, club members gleefully tool turns impersonating Leonard Bernstein witl their traditionally learned lectures. Hum ming arias to themselves between comments the members also discussed tapes and rec ords, including a tape of Coach Alton Smitl in an unguarded moment. Conducting mat ters were chairmen Larry Levine and Kei Witty. Sul 4' .

These noted athletes hav discovered, in modern dancing, an outlet fc their muscular talents. For despite the der sion with which the eloquent appeal fc male members was greeted at an early as sembly, a crew of enlightened boys soo joined, to the delight of chairmen Jud Schupf and Carolyn Adams. The club di: played its talent at the annual spring recita PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB Spring is the time when hooded and strapped observers bloom at Fieldston. No student is safe to relax on the grass without hearing the fatal click announcing that the scene has been immortalized. Such oppor- tunities inspired Ed Fishman and Allan Ross, co-chairmen of the Photo Club, to ,launch a two-year program for improving the pic- tures snapped by club members. Kodak sup- plied the material and Fieldston the subjects with which camera bugs developed and en- larged their skill to cinemascopic propor- tions. ART CLUB Beneath a thick stratum of oils and water colors, many miniature Modiglianis and pint-sized Picassos pursued their inter- ests. Amid flying paintbrushes, gum erasers, sticks of charcoal, and other manifestations of their Muse, members posed and painted with increased proficiency. These smocked enthusiasts of the arts, under the aegis of Richard Reichbart and Joel Perlman, had Mr. Schwartz as Mentor and found the art studio a rather sunny garret. ix. DRAMA CLUB In the one spotlight beaming in the semi-dark cavern of the au- ditorium, sit the members of the Drama Club, working and reading and trying parts. There, under the leadership of Danny Wilcox and Peter Goldfarb and the expert guidance of Miss Tomasone, they play all possible scenes of their own and of others' creation. There are even drunken scenes executed by the inimitable Charlie Braun. Through criticism the members im- prove techniques. Nor is this only for their own consumption, for scenes are displayed to the school at large. x l I' img I- 1 ' ' ' I -0- 4' J xxx X91 . 'Wh MQ 0- s f.

The newly formulated Math Club boasted successful mem- bership and interesting mathemati- cal figures this year. The group was formed operating on the concept that a great deal of mathematics not touched upon in class ought, nevertheless, to be learned. Al- though it was under the auspices of Stuart Galanor and Robert Speiser that the club was established, by some twist of democracy David Belenky and David Robbins be- came the first chairmen. Lectures by the latter and by other assorted mathematicians comprised the bulk of the club's program, which dealt with the ideas of George Boole. litmug Words drip with cider and doughnuts in sunny Sunday POETRY? and PROSE!

CREATIVITY flows like wine. Two magazines full of YOU. I i . gi i -. X xx SENIOR PLAY "The tramp of Caesars legions" echoed through Fieldston as the Sixth Form Spectacular was unveiled. Shaw's Caesar and Cleopatra gave the girls a chance to learn how Egyptians tittered, while the boys discovered what Ro- mans wore under their togas. Richie S. was an admirable "old gentleman" who simply would not shave his head, Hope F. is now considering dyeing her hair black, and Margie B. declares she sleeps bert packed into a carpet. Meanwhile, the crew dashed about backstage cre- ating sphinxes and sunsets when the curtain was down, and occasionally when it was not. And everybody was impressed to hear a loud splash some minutes after great Caesar dove out of sight. Of course, the inimitable Miss Tomasone lent her festival touch to make it perfect, as even the most un- ruly sixth form soldiers settled down into an artistic mob-scene finish. MODEL U.N. During the weekend of April 3- 4, Fieldston was transformed into a bustling hive of international in- trigue, as the first Fieldston Model United Nations got under way. Thirty-live schools from the Metro- politan area participated in this new froject undertaken by a group of Fieldston students. The conference was highlighted by many violent debates in the various commissions over such issues as disarmament, in- ternational control of space, the admission of Communist China, and enforcement of international civil rights. Under the able leadership of Lou Livingston, Steve Shapiro, and Ken Witty, this ambitious project was a marked success. It achieved its pur- pose of giving an insight into the operations of the U. N. and being an exciting experience for the two hundred delegates who attended. 43 fi ..

This year, the girls were able to conserve their strength for the matches, rather than the walk to Kelton's. All reserved energy was necessary to complete the full schedule of competitions with Walden, Dalton, River- dale, and several other schools. The team was ably coached by Pat K. and enthusiastically captained by Dodie Dewan. Her tennis mates included predominantly seniors, whose de- parture will leave spaces on next year's team for many newcomers. Gladly returning outside after a cold win- ter of diving or dribbling, according to pref- erence, Fieldston athletes deftly pounded away at balls fed them by opposing pitchers under the clear blue skies of suburbia. With its superb captains, P. lsraelson and S. Ablon, the baseball team blazed through an exciting season. The games were highlighted by the outfield escapades of L. Goldman and B. Glauber and the infield manoeuvers of S. Ablon and K. Newborg. Strong batting sup- port from R. Hertz and P. lsraelson and cru- cial clutch hitting from M. 'Mungin and A. Kinzler were also quite welcome.

Kicking up much dust on its way to the exciting Fieldston relays which climaxed the season, the squad braved an arduous schedule. Coaches Alton Smith and George Shaw, and co-captains Tony D. and Eric W., eased wear and tear on Fieldston feet with helpful advice. With Tony and Nat in the longest runs ,and Richie, Don, and Peter in the quarter-mile, the team nearly llew to victory. Meanwhile, Don, Eric, Mark, and Tom used their built-in spring to best advantage in the broad and high jumps. Newly coached this year by "joltin' joe" Papaleo, Fieldston's top-Hight tennis team Clive-time running MAAPS champsj en- joyed another vigorous season. An innova- tion, the freshly surfaced, all-weather Field- ston courts, dispellecl the players' previously held illusions of serving from a sandpile. Because of these extra facilities, the clamor- ing hosts of hopeful sophomores were more easily accommodated on the squad. Spear- headed by five returning lettermen, including captain Ed Fishman, three seniors, and a junior, the enlarged team displayed all spring its inspired racqueteering.

We'll tell you how Fran won her fame, 'Twas on the roof-that kissing game. On table tops turned upside-down Dick L. was acrobat and clown. Our Fredda's sidearm won folk ball, While Ellie's chest catch wowed us all. Now Lois thought Kay was all man, But what a shock-he played Queen Anne. A humdinger by Lind and Pete, Three forty-live was quite a feat. Fifth grade brought us many joys, Rona was taller than all the boys.

Vikings, explorers, Greeks and Chinese Richie refused to eat any peas. Margie led the jumprope lines, We had a patty at Valentine's. Candle-dipping, soap, and Daisy, Slam-books drove us nearly crazy. Graduation took the lime, And Millie's dress afar done on time. La' J , , y r I if S if we-if J if-w Q' 'ft Then we entered Fieldston's portals, Dainty fairies rose from mortals. Lou had nightmares, Mark had qualms, We entered stage with sweaty palms. SPET was founded, Lewis ran it, "Gettysburg" was learned by Janet. Barbaras Fisher, Friedberg, Gerson All together seemed one person. Beetle-racing was the craze, Work sheets took up many days. Jim Leiter and Bob F., we guess, Were in the math-book-hiding mess. Parties, parties, by the dozen, Kept our able grapevine buzzin'. Walter was that special boy For Sharon, Judy S., and Joy. On April Fool's we took a walk, Sat in at free time, couldn't talk.

We cancelled num'rous nines with Jay, Played mumbley-peg at free all day, Ran our council, cheered at games, Learned the upper formers' names. When the days with sun were filled, We made our way to Hudson Guild. After work each day a dance, The girls changed clothes at every chance. Our biggest problem came to be Latin versus history. In '55 we moved downstairs, Richie Y. drummed hard on chairs. Peter S. and Susie K. joined our ranks, and Joyce Charnay Came back. We had more homework now, Wrinkles furrowed every brow. Ingie, Dinky, Bev, and jane Came, and Hudson Guild brought rain. Sue and Howie, lindy stars, Jack and Jay discovered cars. P: now was Patty K., Bob C. and Peri came to stay.
