FORT HAMILTON HIGH SCHOOL
O Augus'I'us Ludwig, Principal
To The Class of February I946:
CongraTulaTions To you, The TirsT class To
graduaTe Trom ForT HamilTon High School
during a Time oT peace. This is noT so much
a disTincTion as a challenge, Tor in This
posT-war world, we shall see changes as
sTarTling as we did during The War iTselT.
We have, however, Tried To show you The
way To be a beTTer, happier and more
saTisTying life, by sTressing The value oT
The arTs, by opening The vasT domains of
science and maThemaTics, and The culTural
values oT The humaniTies. This new world
has always been wiTh us. lT will noT be
revealed To you, however, wiThouT pains-
Talcing eTlorT, buT greaT is The reward To
him who perseveres. ln shorT, we have
Tried To help you learn The arT oT living
wiTh oThers, To appreciaTe anoTher's poinT
oT view and To undersTand his ouTloolc on
Life is always commonplace To com-
monplace people, buT iT can be made
sublime by Those who are inspired, To
see The beauTy oT The world abouT us,
To seelc The good in oThers, and To serve
May your graduaTion Trom ForT Hamil-
Ton High School be a sTepping sTone To
Cordially and sincerely yours,
AUGUSTUS LU DWIC5
Looking back upon our years aT ForT
l-lamilTon High School, we Seniors see
Them highlighTed noT only by The Trolic-
some school shows, dances, and ouTings,
buT also by our ever-gracious grade
advisor, Mrs. I-larT.
WiTh her aT The sTeering wheel and
our course charTed Tor The realm oT
knowledge, we seT sail upon a diTTiculT
journey. Many obsTacles were encounTered,
louT wiTh The incessanT TaiTh, careTul guicl-
ance, and deTermined eTTorTs oT Mrs.
l-larT, we have aTTained our goal wiTh all
The conTidence ThaT she has so inspired
WiThouT her Triendly and Tun-loving
naTure, our school days mighT have been
unevenTTul. We'll Torever be graTeTul Tor
her conTinuous and hearTTelT endeavors
To prepare us for This changing world.
Always associaTed wiTh Mrs. l-larT in our
memory will be her ever-presenT smile
ThaT so insTanTaneously endeared her To
I-lisTory TaughT us To remember The
Alamo and To remember The Maine, buT
no one need remind The Seniors OT Febru-
ary '46 To remember Mrs. HarT. lT is our
sincere hope ThaT we may some day Tul-
Till her every expecTaTion oT us.
We Seniors Thank you, Mrs. l-larT!!
There was nighT. The skies were black
We sTood alone on a barren and Torsaken
waiTed Tor The morning. We waiTed long
succumbed To The blackness.
BuT every nigh+ musT someTime end.
waiTed, The darkness liTTed and Trom The
The glow oT early morning.
TT is inTo This new dawn of peace ThaT
OThers have liTTed The darkness Tor us. . .
given us The lighT ThaT we mighT see. . .
done This byfThe shedding oT Their blood
riTice oT Their lives.,We musT guard Their
. . . Many
And as we
easT we saw
we now walk.
. They have
and The sac-
oT peace. We musT work wiTh our bodies and our hearTs
To keep iT saTe. For This giTT is noT ours alone .... IT is
Tor our children and all The children ThaT are To come.
WiTh hearTs Tilled wiTh hope and graTiTude, we, The
Seniors oT I946, dedicaTe This, our yearbook, To a world
MARY JOY BROWNIN6.
Yes buT was iT worTh iT ouT There in
The grime and muck dying all around
me and always Thinking oT home my
socks were so weT Americans are in-
venTive geniuses why can'T They invenT
really waTer prooT shoes and always wanT-
ing To geT away Trom iT all away Trom
crouching in The dir'T and hiding behind
a palm Tree digging my head in The
dirT and biTing hard cursing aT every
shell ThaT exploded shaTTering IiTTIe jagged
pieces ThaT rooTed Themselves inside you
aTraid To IeT The Tears come because
The oThers would see how cowardly I
really was howling inTo The wind on deaT
ears ThaT iT was wrong iT was wrong evil
evil wrong beaTing my chesT and crying
ouT why me why does iT have To be me
and shells bursTing all around IighTing up
The nighT sky sTars never seemed To shine
iT was always so bleak and desoIaTe only
The shells giving oTT IighT buT no warmTh
and someday iT would end and The world
would go back To normal The parade was
over aT 5 o'cIock and my TeeT were Tired
and burning The people cheered and Threw
conTeTTi somehow I didn'T Teel as if This
was iT and nowl can siT here on a
bench and waTch The cool clean silky
waTer lapping againsT The rocks
iT is hard To belive and here I am The
kids have graduaTed TonighT They are Tull
oT hope They have no ambiTion They know
everyThing and noThing They are geTTing
a chance To realize Their ambiTion and
I made iT possible buT was iT worTh iT did
iT mean so much To come back and waTch
Those kids waTch and envy Them see Their
Taces as They go inTo a world oT peace
whaT a wonderTuI Teeling iT musT be To
know They're noT going To shove a gun
inTo your hands and you can sTill go on
living The same and eaTing ice cream
sodas IeT Tomorrow look aTTer iTseIT no
worry everyThing will be here Tomorrow
I can sTill go ouT To The ball game I
haven'T had a hoT dog since I IeTT They
TasTe so good all smeared wiTh musTard
and The Greek in The resTauranT wiTh his
greasy Tood ThaT TasTes good only when
you're hungry buT iT's The only resTauranT
open so whaT can you do buT The parade
means noThing only apple pie and milk
There's a dish you can'T beaT and my duTy
is To live and They won'T have To pick me
oTT The ground and Try To recognize ThaT
bloody pulp ThaT was my Tace so They
can send a Telegram home and They'II
know I died buT I came home IasT week
and I can siT here and waTch The cool
silky waTer lapping againsT The rocks
And Then I wenT ouTside wiTh Frank
his diploma was aImosT crushed he was
so nervous he and I wenT To have a smoke
and he wanTed To be a docTor iT was greaT
having me home again and iT was greaT I
only wish I had had The chance To wanT To
be a docTor and I am here and you are
here aTTer all we made iT possible Today
you are noT in jail Tor being a Jew a
Negro a CaThoIic or American and you're
alive and iT's greaT To have iusT graduaTed
Trom high school everyThing is sTill here
and only I have changed and can no
longer Teel as Frank does because he
hasn'T been Through iT and I was ouT
There maybe never To come back he here
siTTing behind a school desk looking aT
The girls never Thinking of me ouT There
maybe I would die or lose an arm so he
could go Through med school and become
a docTor buT I didn'T and The war is over
and I have come back and There are
so many Things I missed This is a greaT
world and IiTe can really be worTh some-
Thing when you see kids like This living
and happy why should They Think OT any-
one or whaT happened yesTerday or me
dying when They will be alive Tomorrow
and They will be happy because I have
never known happiness and TelT despair
and was depressed and TonighT These kids
have shown me whaT is IasTing and whaT
shall remain They will always be here anzl
always be ambiTious and will go Torward
no maTTer how many die I can or iT noT
me somebody else can come and peace
will have seTTIed over The world Tarmers
will plow Their Tields To grow grain Tor
The babies ThaT won'T be Ted on blood and
The homes of The dead shall TerTilize iT
and The babies will be healThier because
These bones made a large sTrong crop and
always coming back and we will Talk and
iT will be swell To be wiTh her To Teel
her close To me again and I'lI never go
and always be here because somebody
died now I am sure someThing will come
oT all The deaTh and desTrucTion The world
will live more happily and everybody will
work TogeTher so I can always come back
and siT here on a bench and waTch The
cool clean silky waTer lapping againsT The
rocks The breeze blowing Through The
Trees iusT sTrong enough To make The
leaves rusTle The moon shining on The
bare cold walls oT The school making iT
gleam and someTimes I Think The school
has a soul everyThing seems To emiT a
warming glow because This is iT and peace

Our Team's success reached iTs pinnacle

The experienced harriers oT The meTro-
ln Their TirsT season oT varsiTy compe-

ln iTs TirsT PSAL baslceTball season. l:orT

eleven league games. Our lack OT ex-

ToughT Lincoln and Madison To a sTand-
s+iIl, losing boTh conTesTs by a one poinT

The second year oT league compeTiTion
saw liTTle advance in ForT l-lamilTon's
sTanding in League ll's Tinal raTings, Our
Team, however, posed a serious ThreaT To
The powerhouses up FlaTbush way. Under
The guidance of Al Gazzalle and The Tire

our opening conTesT. The Team Then wenT
on To lose The remaining TirsT half games.
The second parT oT The season saw The
deparTure OT many sTars buT a reiuvena-

seven games were dominaTed by The all-

Two highlighTs were our one poinT vicTory

The Tielding and baTTing power of Floyd

a ThreaT To unsuspecTing Teams.
NexT spring we will shed a Tear Tor The

Their good example!
IT has Tinally come TO an end, Tellow
seniors, Our Tour years OT work, play,
worry and RegenTs. Remembering our TirsT
uncerTain sTeps Through The now hallowed
halls OT FOrT l-lamilTOn, remembering The
days when we all ThOughT a salmon was
a Tish, remembering The Times when These
walls seemed so huge and umcamiliar, we
look back, reminiscing, and chuckle TO
Think ThaT we maTure young men and
women OT The TuTure could ever have
been so prudenT. ForT l-lamilTOn, like
Ourselves, was very young when we TirsT
made Our appearance in The days when
laTe passes and deTenTiOn were unheard OT.
We dug deep inTO our pockeTs To pur-
chase The "PilOT," The "Anchor" and Odds
and ends in The ever TaiThTul "G.O."
sTOre. The scramble Tor The caTeTeria To
be TirsT in line, The much ridiculed sand-
wiches, The TighT Tor chairs in The lunch-
room all became a deTiniTe parT OT The
paTTern we Tollowed daily, Tive days a
week. To be known as recognized l-lam-
ilTOnians, we all developed a special walk
known as The "l-lamilTOn ShuTTle," and
adapTed a special Technique Tor Overcom-
ing The commando TacTics used in The
overcrowded buses To and Trom school.
There is a serious side TO every sTOry,
however, and Ours was The TacT ThaT our
cOunTry was involved in a war TOO devas-
TaTing TO describe. We had To do some-
Thing TO help, and upon pondering The
siTuaTion, we hiT upon an idea aT lasT.
Among OThers DOT Niven, RuTh Nelson,
Clara TrackTir, ROsemargareT Young, DOT
GOnseTh, RuTh BrandT, DOT MOwaT, Anna
Dragone, AniTa l-lackmann, Barbara Bed-
Tord and The CarTer Twins, dusTed OTT Their
Tonsils, shined Their Taps and came TOrTh
wiTh The glorious "VicTOry Show", The
proceeds oT which boughT a Mobile Can-
Teen To be senT To The TighTing TronT.
NexT came The assembly where Mr. Lud-
wig and Miss HoTTman demonsTraTed The
arT oT kniTTing aTghans. lT was noT asTon-
ishing To walk inTo an English class, or
STudy Hall and see boys and girls alike
vigorously kniTTing one, purling Two, inTo
squares oT The brighTesT colors imaginable.
Jeeps were senT overseas Through The
many bonds and sTamps we boughT,
Courses in EirsT Aid, Home Nursing, Radio
and NuTriTion were a necessiTy, being
classed as War Courses, and EorT Hamil-
Ton was all-ouT Tor The war eTTorT.
We gave our TirsT Musicale and were
quiTe proud oT The insTrumenTal genius
oT our sTudenT orchesTra under The di-
recTion oT Mr. RaTTner, noT TorgeTTing The
beauTiTul concerTo delivered by The TaculTy
wiTh Dr. Leuchs, our assisTanT principal,
conducTing. We remember also The ren-
diTions oT our piano arTisT, Eugene AlberT.
Our TirsT assembly, our TirsT PiloT, our
TirsT Anchor, and our rsT ChrisTmas as-
sembly in which we sang The hilarious
song To The Tune oT Jingle Bells composed
by Mr. Ludwig and Miss Young were
drawn To a close. Slowly, buT perseveringly
we had climbed The sTairs oT knowledge
and ended our TirsT year and a halT in
The Time came Tor ThaT "EaTal EourTh"
Term, meaning RegenTs exams Tor mosT oT
us. This was Truly The beginning oT The
end. Remember The day ThaT we had To
siT in The hall Tor Two hours during a ciTy-
wide air raid drill? How lucky ThaT iT
was only pracTicel One oT The more
pleasanT TourTh Term acTiviTies was The
carnival, providing a wonderTul Time Tor
all and hoT dogs in The caTeTeria.
Having had our TirsT TasTe OT RegenTs,
we decided ThaT They weren'T so Terrible
aTTer alll?l and ThaT The TiTTh Term was
already upon us. AT This poinT we goT To
Thinking ThaT we were growing old. "Gosh,,,
one oT us would exclaim, "high school
is halT Tinished already. How TasT Those
precious years Tlewl" However, looking
Torward, "Seven Keys To BaldpaTe" was
clearly in view. A wonderTul producTiong
iT broughT To lighT some oT our own Tal-
enTed personaliTies. We well remember
BerT BarneTT as "Hermy The HermiT,"
Helen Lacz as The sulTry siren lwiTh a gun
in her hip pockeTl, and Dick PeTersen in
an equally imporTanT role. EiTTh Term also
broughT D-Day and The EiTTh War Loan,
and a Tew highly imaginaTive HamilTonians
who were dreaming oT a posT-war boaT-
house To be builT Tor The sTudenTs' use
on The Narrows. I wonder . ..
By SepTember, l944, we were in our
sixTh Term. Among The many accounTs
oT summer vacaTions was The reporT ThaT
RuTh Nelson and Miriam McCloskey had
spenT a week aT Skidmore College rep-
resenTing our Tair school. BesT remembered
oT our days in sixTh Term occurred when
RubinoTT played "PisTol Packin' Mama"
aT one oT our assemblies, and oT course,
ElecTion Day. For ThaT Tall meanT The
PresidenTial elecTion, and many were The
heaTed debaTes and hard feelings. BuT
Then we were all Triends again The day
aTTer elecTions. VVell, almosT all. Then
Too, ThaT was The Tall when Eugene AlberT
audiTioned Tor Leopold STokowski, and we
elecTed Eugene as presidenT oT our Grade
Council, wiTh Paul BrioTTa, Clara TrackTir,
Jean BarTeld, and RuTh BrandT as his Tel-
Then began Those happy, buT worrisome
days oT our lasT year aT EorT l-lamilTon.
We began by Torming our SevenTh Term
Council, wiTh DoroThy Niven presiding.
The council planned Tor our Barn Dance
and bike ride To Clove Lake. The Tormer
was a hugh success, being The TirsT oT iTs
kind in The hisTory oT EorT HamilTon.
NaTurally, "we" had To be diTTerenT. As
Tor The bike ride, iT Turned ouT To be
JusT anoTher hike excepT Tor a Tew cour-
ageous souls, such as Marion Andreassen
and Connie KaTz, who could be seen hav-
ing quiTe a Time pushing Their bikes along
ThaT TlaT l?'?l STaTen Island counTry.
ATTer school we packed The boys'
gym To cheer our baske+ball Team To
vicTory lw'ho's kidding who?l. AT any raTe,
we enoyed The baskefball and baseball
games, and win or lose, we leTT always
wiTh The knowledge ThaT our boys had
given Their all Tor EorT l-lamilTon. A Tew
oT The braver souls Trudged down To The
lce Palace To see our hockey Team win
The league and, ohl whaT a wonderTul
Teeling ThaT was!
The radio workshop broughT To lighT
The TalenTs oT Jimmy Mullen, Richard
PeTersen, LeiT Andersen, and Thelma Lind.
G. O. elecTions Took LeiT Andersen and
Clyde McBride ouT oT oTTice and gave The
lower Termers Their chance., f
We reTurned painTully Trom our vaca-
Tion, noT only proud ThaT we were aT lasT
Seniors, buT happy in The realizaTion ThaT
ours would be The TirsT peaceTime gradua-
Tion. We began by elecTing our Senior
oTTicers who were LeiT Andersen, presi-
denT, Beverly Burke, vice-presidenT, RuTh
CarTer, secreTary, Clara TrackTir and
DoroThy Glidden, Treasurers. Our year
book goT under way wiTh DoroThy CarTer
as ediTor-in-chieT, PiloT conTinued wiTh
Shirley Weiner aT iTs helm. Ivan Polonsky
was elecTed boy leader oT ArisTa. Our
humorous senior show, "Snow WhiTe and
The Seven DwarTs," wriTTen by Richard
PeTersen was a hugh success. Seniors
like AI Biggio, Richard Burns, Vinnie La
Sala, Clyde McBride, Tom Nucci, Jack
Gabriel, and Kenny ChrisTensen composed
our baseball, baskefball, Track and hoc-
key Teams. Our social acTiviTies goT OTT
wiTh a bang wiTh our TirsT Senior dance.
Things were livened up by The enTerTain-
menT given by our own classmaTes and
oT course we all enioyed The reTreshmenTs
lwho wouldn'T?l. OTher ouTsTanding evenTs
were our swimming and skaTing parTies,
picnic aT Clove Lake and OT course, The
unTorgeTTable Prom held aT The Park
And now graduaTion is here. WiTh
mingled oy, sorrow and knowledge l??l
we go To Take our places in The world.
There are many Things we won'T miss,
such as ThaT EorT l-lamilTon bus, laTe
passes, salmons, homework, and Those
eager Teachers and Their daily quizzes.
And so we say Tarewell, hoping ThaT
we've conTribuTed a liTTle To The school
ThaT has given us so much.
