SMITH For the past eighteen years, Herbert Smith has been the moving force behind the Fran- cis Parker School. His leaving marks the end of an era at Porker. Herbert Smith graduated from Harvard in 1912. He then taught English at Harvard and at M.I.T. He came to Parker in 1938 from the Fieldston School in Nev r York, where he v as Head of the English Depart- ment, and Principal for thirteen years. Of his activities while at Parker, Mr. Smith feels that he has been " ... about equally concerned with running as good a school as possible with some experimentation, and with strengthening and extending on a national scale the public service of independently controlled and financed education below the college level. " His success in the latter endeavor is indicated by the important posts he has held in educational organizations. He is a Founder, and has been Director of the National Registration Office for Independent Schools, the Na- tional Council of Independent Schools, and the Independent Schools ' Association oi Greater Chicago. He has been a re- presentative to the College Entrance Examination Board, and a member and officer of the Headmasters ' Association, the Country Day School Headmasters ' Association, the Private Schools ' Association of the Central States, and the Harvard Club of Chicago. He is a trustee of Chicago Commons and of the Dana Hall Schools, and a member of the Overseers ' Com- mittee for the Graduate School of Education at Harvard. His success at " running as good a school as possible " is indicated by the achievements of Parker graduates, in college and in life. Parker students know and admire Mr. Smith as a teacher, advisor, and disciplinarian. He approaches each pro- blem of school life with integrity, understanding, and wisdom. It is the desire of the Record Staff to honor Herbert Smith, to whom we are all indebted, by dedicating to him the 1956 Parker Record.

HERBERTSMITH: Certainly. SENIORSTUDENT: Have we not come to agree that some kinds of conduct and only some kinds are to be praised and others are not? That Responsibility and Everything to Help and Nothing to Hin- der are good, and Undependability and Thoughtlessness are not? HERBERTSMITH: Indeed we have so agreed Oh Seniorstudent. SENIORSTUDENT: Does it not, then, follow that a class that has been thoughtful and diligent and mature will stand in Parker annals as admirable, and one that has been heedless and arrogant and faltering will be despised? HERBERTSMITH: Yes. But in what lies the inconsistency? SENIORSTUDENT: In this: the Class of 1956 has been both unthinking and thoughtful, kind and mean; gauche and indolent yet clever and productive. We know that we depend on each other; yet we won ' t give up any little part of ourselves that would make us any less the individuals that we strive to be. How will so contradictory a class stand in the RECORD? HERBERTSMITH: Are you not, oh Seniorstudent, forgetting the law of opposites? Had you been less frustrated by disunion, would you have learned to work together, or have achieved humility without first making the blunders of overconfidence? Is it not worth while to have been thought of, by those whose judgments are hasty, as the Worst Class in Years, in order to stand now. in th.- .judg- ment of the knowing, as ' 1956, the Class that Improved Most ' ? Herbert Smith Arlyn Miner Lunch in the Senior Room " Hello Hitchcock, This is West " " Is Parker in There? " i ' 1 BIG BROTHERS AND SISTERS A school should be a model home . . . A model home combines the activities of the big and little brothers and sisters, gives them a chance to work together so that they may know each other better, have fun toge- ther, like each other. When we speak of the " Parker family, " it is more to us than a mean- ingless cliche, for each senior is a big brother or sister to one of the lower school grades. It means excited anticipation when the little ones wait to see which four " belong " to them, and some apprehension on the part of the seniors, while they sit hoping that " their " classes will be happy with them. It means setting up booths together at County Fair, and being invited to Valentine parties; being especially smiled at and yelled to, in the halls; being let in front of the line at the water fountain; waving back and forth at Morning Ex.; settling squabbles on the stairs. Not very big things, but nice things. It means friendship. PAGE TWENTY-SIX SANTA CLAUS PARTY There was a hush in the New Gym. All eyes were focused on the little stage with the large fireplace. Suddenly, a jingle of bells was heard, and emerging from the hearth of the fireplace was . . . Santa Claus! The kindergarten, first, second and third graders shouted greetings to him and the Santa Claus Party was on! The Sen- iors helped Santa into an extra-large chair on the stage, where he was nobly entertained by songs and dances of the little school classes, and by the seniors ' traditional performance of " The Twelve Days of Christmas. " In exchange, Santa gave candy and popcorn balls to the happy children. The Senior Santa Claus Party has been a tradition at Parker since 1913. The seniors get a feeling of usefulness and affection for the party which they give for the children of the Little School. The Gores Meet Santa Gee Santa, is that a real beard? With Reindeer Waiting THE DEVIL ' S DISCIPLE " The Devil ' s Disciple, " by George Bernard Shaw, was the first dramatic effort of the senior class. A farcical melo- drama, it tells of a " black sheep " with radical ideas, who offers his life to save that of another, and finds himself a hero. There was much to remember besides the actual per- formances: The nights in the cold auditorium . . . experi- menting with make-up . . . itching wiggs . . . washing old costumes and scrubbing dirty floors . . . painting colonial houses on scenery flats . . . the soldiers drilling in the gym . . . laughing when some one suggested, " if there ' s no ap- plause, we ' ll use the gallows and hang ourselves " . . . and when the minister pinned an " Eat ye at the Websterbridge Tea Shoppe " sign to the back of his cloak . . . the mad scramble for props: " is there anyone who can get us a barm- brack? It ' s a yeast cake with raisins on it " . . . the sleeping privileges and the frantic pleas for less homework ... the waiting while Mr. Hughes tried to read his notes, and then tried to remember what they were supposed to mean . . . Learning to act a part is important, but learning to act in relation to others is the purpo.se of the Senior Plays; seeing people, whom we had considered talentless, suddenly becom- ing th(3sbians of the first order, is the fun of them. In " The Devil ' s Disciple, " the Senior Class scored in both respects. %e )) " ■,7 ' I I i 1 " Amen! Stop the executionl ' Tea. but no sympathy Spirit of ' 76 " But Lawyer Hawkins ' Noble teacher, here is the plan " Electro ELECTRA " Electra " has been challenging to writers through the ages. It is a story of a girl and her brother who plot to avenge the murder of their father. The theme has been presented to the Seniors in various forms; the strangle hold of fate, the never ending cycle of sin, a study of human nature, the plight of man against his conscience, a tragedy ending in despondency, a tragedy ending with a faint glimmering of hope. They have been exposed to the different interpretations of Euripide ' s " Electra, " Sa- tre ' s " Les Mouches, " Richard Strauss ' opera " Electra, " and even the Freudian " Electra Complex. " With this background in mind, Sophocles ' version of " Electra " was chosen as the second Senior Play of 1956. The modern translation, though challenging with its long and difficult speeches, was beautifully staged, em- ploying simple yet forceful set decorations. The Parker presentation brought to life a play which is as powerful and thought provoking today as it was centuries ago.

PAGE FIFTY-ONE activities . . organizations STUDENT GOVERNMENT The effective administration and continuing gains of privileges are stimulating signs of a flexible institution. I believe that the Student Government of our school has reached this pla- teau and is still advancing tov ard the summit of perfection. This year, a new committee v as estab- lished to extend the already recognized com- munity services of our school. Through this Social Services Committee, the level of indi- vidual participation is expressed as a result of one ' s own interest. Our Government is moving as a body and the talents of many people have contributed stimulating student opinions. Gratifying results have presented the student with a firm feeling of self-government. There is always room for improvement, if the students can also make the necessary adjustments. — Paul Armento EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE Back row, left to right: Jim Lowry and Jim Simmons, Lunchroom Committee Heads; Buddy Gore, Social Committee Head; John West, Dramatic Association Head; John Carroll, PRINTS Editor. 3rd row: Mike Leventhal and Tom Kirshbaum, RECORD Editors; Dave Wallerstein, Vice President; Willie Piatt, Study Hall Head; Jim Adelman, LibraryCommittee Head; Barny Negronida, Advisor. 2nd row: Sue Kaufman, Social Services Committee Co-Head; Ann Kearns, Morning Exercise Commit- tee Head; Anise Rueben, Secre tary; Carol Massey, Student Representative-at-Large to the Committee ol Four.

It is the responsibility of the So- cial Committee at Parker to plan, organize, and carry out the social events, such as dances and gatheralls, which bring the students closer to- gether and make the High School into a w ell- knit unit. I feel that this has been accomplished. The members of the Social Committee have co- operated to the fullest extent, and through their cooperation the social functions have been suc- cessful. Buddy Gore " See ' ya later, alligator " SOCIAL COMMITTEE THE WEEKLY For better or lor worse, we have made many innovations as editors of the WEEKLY this year. Some of these new steps have changed the WEEKLY itself; others have been concerned with extending the fields of activity of the edi- tors and the staff. We have experimented with the content, lay- out, and staff of the WEEKLY. One of these experiments has been to establish an edi- torial board consisting of sub-editors (Features, Reviews, Sports, Circulation) which changed three times during the year. The sub-editors have not only helped to manage their areas, but have, upon occasion, written the weekly editorials. We have allowed the staff to criti- cize school activities constructively, a system which, we think, has added purpose and spice to the WEEKLY. We have tried to include in the WEEKLY as many features as possible about cultural, social, and educational activi- ties in Chicago. The purpose of these features was twofold: To arouse attention on the part of the students toward these activities, and to give the staff members experience in inter- viewing and reporting. To center our activities in school, we renovated the old WEEKLY shop. We think the WEEKLY has grown considera- bly this year, and we hope the staff and stu- dent body agree. Mim Eisenstein Patsy Sundheim Proud Parents The weekly goes to press PARKER PRINTS The PRINTS this year, as in the past, has tried to gather and pre- sent the best writing done by all students in all grades. For no other enterprise, save County Fair, is so much a production of the entire school. For the merits of this year ' s issue, the Editors extend their sincere thanks to all contributors. For its shortcom- ings they accept full blame. John Carroll PAGE FIFTY-SIX STUDENT GOVERNMENT ACTIVITIES " A school should be an embryonic democracy, " declared Colonel Parker many years ago, and, being truly objective, one can see how near our school is to fulfilling this ideal. Representative democracy at Parker exists in the form of our Student Government Committees, whose chairmen are elected by the en- tire High School, and whose members are elected by the grades. This year, the judicial department of our " govern- ment " the Honor Committee, aided by the faculty, re- quested additional powers. Evidently, the idea seemed too radical to the majority of students, for they vetoed the motion in Student Government. The Honor Com- mittee has continued to administrate effectively with its traditional authority. The Relief Committee has functioned this year largely as a money-making organization, having ac- quired a large reserve of funds. In contrast, the new- ly-formed Social Services Committee has dealt with services to the community. The Lower School has par- ticipated in many projects. As a result of a Student Government action, the duties of Mr. Griffith ' s Record-Buying Committee were transferred to the Library Committee, which, therefore, has busied itself with the selection of both new books and records. The duties of the Finance Committee remained un- changed and the pecuniary problems of Student Gov- ernment were very adequately solved. Gaining a privilege or two, clarifying and modify- ing rules, and discussing problems of general concern constituted the business of the Committee of Four, which is made up of the four grade heads and student representatives.

" The original idea and value of Morning Exercise has not changed, but rather has progressed. Morning Exercise is one of Parker ' s most valuable classes, and is an excellent example of the school ' s educational philosophy, " learn by doing. " It offers a unique experience to both the performer and his audience. The Commit- tee, composed of students and faculty, tries to present a wide variety of speakers, motion pictures, and plays. As in the past, the Morning Exercise has played an essential part in this year ' s daily curriculum; consequently, we have tried to choose material that is interesting as well as educational. Ann Kearns DRAMATIC ASSOCIATION This year the Dramatic Association has branched out to include some new forms of entertainment in the school. A series of classic motion pictures was pre- sented to paying audiences for charity. " Oklahoma " was presented at a dance. " Bell, Book and Candle " was an evening presentation in March. We feel that the D. A. has contributed to the enjoyment and education of Parker students.

SPECIAL CHORUS kM ORCHESTRA Mr. Griffith ' s decision to spend an entire year on one major work disappointed many members of the Special Chorus. However, the results have proved him right, for the perfor- mance of Verdi ' s REQUIEM by the Special Chorus and Orchestra was probably the finest in years. Special Chorus, which is made up of selected High School voices, requires more time for preparation than many similar organ- izations, for many of the students in this group cannot sightread, and must learn parts by ear. Once learned, any undertaking of the Special Chorus is carried out effectively and artisti- cally. Another explanation for the success of this year ' s musical season is the vigor and en- thusiasm with which Mrs. Bray, the new or- chestra teacher and conductor, has guided the Orchestra toward greater and greater achieve- ments.

There ' s a Ford in your iuture COUNTY FAIR A public address system blared out a welcome to Parker ' s traditional County Fair. Venders of all ages loud- ly advertised their wares, which ranged from popcorn to pompoms, along the midway on the east field, where the colorful animation of the scene was concentrated. In a great display of originality and imagination, bright balloons and crepe paper hung from the concessions advertising a va- riety of puppet shows, picture-taking and win - a - dinner booths, sponge throws, and penny tosses. The eighih grade play, the auction, the Tea Room and the pony rides each lent its in- dividual touch to the colorful gaiety of the occasion. When the proceeds were totaled, it was found that besides being a recreational success. County Fair was also a financial one, provi- ding abundant profits to support the new Social Services Committee.

In the heat of battle Blending backfield speed, pow- er and deception with a hard charging forward wall, the Par- ker Varsity rolled to a White Di- vision championship and came within one game of the Private School League championship. The highlights of the season were the second half comeback against Harvard after being 12 points down at the half, and the excellent showing the team made against a (supposedly) vastly stronger North Shore team in the championship game. Paul Armento, Jim Simmons and Jim Lowry were named to the first All-Division Team while Pete Corcoran, Dave Lindberg, Mickey Rockoff and Dave Wallerstein were named to the second team. With only three players ost through graduation, including Co-Captains Armento and Corcoran, next year ' s Parker team, led by Co-Captains Jim Lowry and Jim Simmons, should again rate with the best in the league.

At Lawrence, where he went to school. Don was an all - conference back in football. After servinq a hitch in the paratroopers and returning to Lawerence as freshman coach for one year. Don came to Parker. He has done a marvelous job as Varsity coach. A year ago he put a qreen football team on the field and managed to win two out of six games. This year we won our divis- ion championship and lost a very close game for the league title. In basketball the story was the same. Last year Don had to develop an inexperienced team. This year they were in contention for the crown up to the lost game. With a coach like Don Boya at the helm, there will be many years of glory ahead for Parker sports. Not only has Don been a fine coach; his friendly personality has made him one of the most liked people at Parker. KARL LONG — ATHLETIC DIRECTOR Coach has long been well known to Parker. When Coach was a Parker student, he was a star all-around ath- lete. For many years Coach Long headed the Varsity basketball teams. Although he no longer coaches any teams. Coach still teaches some of the High School gym classes. As a well-in- formed person in the world of sports. Coach believes that hard play, teamwork and sportsmanship pay off not only on the score card, but in that each player has a lot of fun. COACHES k BARNEY NEGRONIDA " B " TEAM COACH Barney plays a duel role, as Spanish teacher and coach of the " B " team. Barney has had his ups and downs as a coach, which is not surpris- ing, considering Parker ' s size. In football he has had some very successful years, while at other times he was una- ble to put a team on the field. In basketball, Barney has been more successful. During the last five years, four of his teams have fin- ished in the upper half of the league, and one team won a championship. GERRY LARSON " C " TEAM COACH Gerry is the gym instruc- tor of the boys in grades three through eight. In ad- dition, Gerry is the " C " team (grades seven and eight) coach. In the seventh grade, the boys get their first glimpse of inter - scholastic competition, and Gerry has always done a splendid job of preparing them for this. His patience and devotion to working with boys have made him outstanding in this position. PAGE SEVENTY-FOUR SPRING SPORTS The goli team: Steve Yates, Dave Goles, Bill Tcnnenbaum, Willie Piatt. In spring, many High School boys play ei- ther baseball or softball. In addition, golf, ten- nis and canoeing are offered. The Golf Team had a very successful year. They have been the Private School League champions, and returning lettermen Bill Tan- nenbaum, Dave Goles and Willy Piatt made this year ' s team strong. Aside from the team, novice golfers received instruction from coach Parke Thomas. There -was no Varsity Tennis Team this year, but the High School boys had coaching from Parke Thomas and played matches among themselves. They benefitted greatly. Initiative was displayed in the fine achieve- ment of some Freshman boys. A swimming team organized by the boys, after only two weeks ' practice, won fourth place in a Private School League meet. Canoeing enthusiasts belong to a boating club in Lincoln Park. They paddle around in the lagoons, and sometimes venture out into Lake Michigan. These boys have become quite skilled in the handling of a canoe. The swimminq team: too row: Tim Schwake, Judd Miner, Dan Stone; bottom row: Piet Van Home, Dick Romanoff, Bruce Henry, Jack Lund.

Parker High School enjoyed the best athletic program in many years. There were representatives from each High School class on both the Hockey and the Basketball teams. The success of the girls ' athletic program this year is due in large part to our two gym teachers, Mrs. Storm and Mrs. Griffiths. The hockey season was a success. Our team won half of its games, which numbered three. The big game of the season was against Latin. The game was called on account of rain with the score tied at zero. Basketball season began immediately after Christmas. The team played more games this year than ever before, but made a poor show- ing. However, we think that learning how to accept defeat is mora important than constant victories. PAGE SEVENTY-SEVEN What do they know of Parker who only Parker know? Those of us who have been at Parker for twelve years are at a disadvantage when we try to evaluate the education we have re- ceived. To judge is to compare, and if Parker training is to be judged, it must be done either by Parkerites who have attended other schools or who have gone on to college and met other students. Few people who have attended Parker, or indeed any High School, can view with de- tachment such a vital part of their youth. Twenty years after we leave Parker, few of us will be able to rely on our memories. No person can go through four years of High School without having some unpleasant exper- iences. Yet by and large, people surpress painful recolections. Even pleasant memories like the front hall clock and Mr. Meyer ' s white coat will recede into the rosy mist of years gone by. Most people cannot help re- garding with affection the old school and old friends that time has swept away. The " mem- ories we cherish forever " are frequently a poor reflection of the whole truth. The worth of Parker will come to be mea- sured, not in our memories, but by our future actions. If we have been made better men and women, more capable of understanding and dealing with the world around us, our educa- tion has achieved its goal. It has been the aim of Parker to give us the tools with which to fashion success and understanding. True, no implement is perfect; education will not solve all our problems. But our experiences at Parker are the best tool kit we can be given. Parker education is an education in people as much as in facts. In our time at Parker we have come into contact with classmates of highly varied backgrounds and teachers who are original and stimulating. A good teacher gives a student much more than any textbook ca n contain. The ideas we have acquired are inseparable from the personalities of the peo- ple who have taught us. Our attitudes are shaped not only by facts, but by those who have revealed the facts. There is a deep rap- port and comradeship between the faculty and students at Parker which is beneficial to both. It is perhaps this relationship, and the values a student receives from it, that forms the core of the " something extra " in Parker education. Our future has not been guaranteed by our Parker education. We shall, indeed, face the future with some insecurity and fear. But it will not be a fear born of ignorance. r W i_ aaiW ' i:i i» ' l " j -53
