A tree has beauty and has wonder. It pro-

mystery of life, and it leaves man with a

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.

"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

CURRENT EVENTS CLUB
Besides displaying cryptic notes on bul

countries should proceed with foreign af

fused a spark of suspense and vigorous de

opportunity. Choosing Israel as a

THE FIELDSTON NEWS
A mid-season change in the

ingston in the box as Patty Bauman
took up a post in Italy, while Dave
Hellerstein held the clean-up spot.
The editors were backed by a strong
bench, as the staff box reached a
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."

leafless quadrangle, an unblem-
ished blackboard, an immaculately
alligned 821-all these sights on

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.

To those who have endeavored to elate,
Amuse, confuse, beseech, or teach our minds
Through wit and wisdom, this we dedicate.
But since the endless pageant which unwinds
Includes too numerous a faculty,
With habit, knowledge, speech of many kinds,
We cite those whom most frequently we see
Instructing as they picturesquely do
Or whom mere chance entrusts to poetry.
I. A pipe, a hearty laugh, a poet's view,
And wry renditions of our editor's
Requests at lunchg and he quotes Shakespeare, too.
II. Another learned mang from whose mouth pours
Greek verse. He built his house of books and thrives
On past and present sixth forms' metaphors.

With dittoer and compass, to advance.
When class is done, a proof he still derives.

He tosses us pensees profonafes de France.
V. This ray at speeds of light is often known
To chatter of electrons, motors, thumbs,
And Bfs principe. which shows how planes are phlown.
VI. A lighter hour is spent with him who hums
Our parts and tears his quite proverbial hair.
His mercy falls on hundreds and their chums.

Of one who smiles and wanders to and fro
And helps us with our French vocahnlaire.

VIII. Be that as it may, a man we know
Makes history a living fantasy.
We hide his stick, yet stars he will bestow.
IX. Though acid's splashing and his "plumbers" flee,
He mops it up, then draws what all admire:
His famed blue atoms, joined covalently.
X. If 1984 had once seemed dire,
Now, reading it, with laughter shrill we screech,
For so does his buffoonery inspire.
XI. He once filed who said what in which great speech
Within his head and num'rous mimeos.
With clipped address he bares the facts of each.
XII. When the clock's assumed the proper pose,
Promptly formulas of all degrees
Inscribed with ambidextrous care she shows.

sibly desire, fifteen ambitious engi-

Iommittee concerned itself with the be-

ttended such a game in fifteen years. Cover-

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

from the Student Council to join

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.
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.
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.

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-

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
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.

We suppose it's rather silly of us to be
writing letters to a big school like you, but
we just have to tell you how much fun and
work we enjoyed in your rooms. 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! Except when that

all the time-pulled a skeleton from his
closet. We screamed then. 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.

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. And soon even in gym
we'd pick what interested us, but for the

ignorance. 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.
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.

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. One court
thunclered always with the tramps of the
younger soldiers upstairs, for which distrac-

mend. In other courts were told tales of the
'reroes A and B, who gained fame by ex-
:hanging marbles, mowing lawns tat which
A was twice as proficient as BJ and entering
iuge banking experiments. Each story ended
with the unveiling of the mysterious villain

lords who echoed too loudly with calls of -
glee at the conclusion of a day's tasks.
Having sung, Muse, of the present deeds
of these lords, I, like the prophet Teiresias, i
shall envision their future. For if they re- X

them from their rightful tasks, and if suc-

FOLK MUSIC CLUB
That harmonious Weaverlike
echo you heard wafted across the
quadrangle was probably the Folk
Music Club, which sang its way
through Monday meetings. 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.
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

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-
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.
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

Calculating students have
added another dimension to the
club system. 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.

"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.
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
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.

Heralding both the arrival of spring and
the long-awaited completion of the Fieldston
courts, the girls' tennis team moved outdoors.
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.

After weeks of workouts in alternately icy
or steaming weather, the Fieldston track team
was fleet and Hue. 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.

easily accommodated on the squad. Spear-

captain Ed Fishman, three seniors, and a
junior, the enlarged team displayed all

Remembering, we hope, with glee

Let's venture backwards, join the past,
Reliving memories we've amassed.
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.

At last diplomas clutched in hand,
We headed for the promised land.
From F. L. S. we call to mind
Adventures of a different kind.
Rabbits, hamsters, rest, and blocks,
Second grade brought chicken pox.
Injuns roamed at Springtime's fair,
Cara swore never to cut her hair.
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,

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.
Second Form brought French and Spanish,
Water guns were forced to vanish.
Two judys came Cboth B. and DJ,
We had another party spree.
One Midsummer Night we had a Tempest
Dotty S. could sew a hem best.
Stevie whizzed in Latin grades,
Muriel finally cut her' braids.
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.

Mel and Bob were some sensation,
Always got a big ovation.
Harriet F. made quite a hit
With her fancy Charleston bit.
Sue H., jane, and Pallas Alice,
Redlfeads, but devoid of malice.
Debby gave a Sweet Sixteen,
Bio lab turned Jackie green.
Al L. was fond of hot debate,
Harriet Z. had many a date.
