As the modern glass doors of Garfield High School open
each day, Monday through Friday, five days a week, ten
months a year, H55 students pass through. Of these pupils
603 are girls, 55l boys. The divisions of classes are: 245
seniors, 274 iuniors, 312' sophomores, and 324 freshmen.
Approximately 35 per cent of the graduating class is college

Although Garfield is a relatively new school it offers a
diversified program of studies. There is a curriculum of I0
courses, 79 subiects, taught by the 55 members of the faculty.
These courses are taught in 37 classrooms which include three
laboratories, an art room, a wood shop, and a large gym-
nasium. There is also a cafeteria with a capacity of 300 pupils,
a recording room, an auditorium which seats 850 persons,
and a library complete with 8400 volumes. An able nurse
is on duty all day in a fully equipped nurse's room. The 3
members of the office staff are ready to assist students at all
times. The guidance department is efficiently handled by
Garfield High School has received the approval of the
State 'Department of Education of New Jersey, and is ac-
credited by the Middle Atlantic States Association of Colleges
and Secondary Schools.
The "L" shaped red brick two story building bord-ering
along two sides of the Garfield Memorial Stadium occupies
14.5 acres. To facilitate parking, the Board of Education will
pave the rear of the building and add a park to what we
now call the "Brick-yard."

firmly upheld. You are gone from

The Senior Class has long been known to faculty, alumni, and
others as an outstanding one. Our class, more than many
others has shown wonderful spirit and enthusiasm in all phases of
lt all started on a brisk morn when we gathered at No. 9
school, then our High School annex. Days passed into weeks and
we 'found all our available time was being consumed in our studies
and our activities. Soon, we frosh began seeping into the ranks of
the upper classmen. Many of our boys made the J. V. teams, our
girls made the cheering and twirling squads as substitutes. Soon
summer was upon us. We anxiously awaited the completion of our
new high school.
Sophomore year came and with it occupancy in the new
high school. Here we made our mark. Under the able leadership
of our advisers, Mrs. Markey and Miss Filippone, we chose as class
officers John Cali, president, Anthony Graceffo, vice-president,
Carole Nitus, secretary, and Linda Hartos, treasurer. We ioined
clubs, took part in school government, and enioyed being a rung
higher on the class ladder. Soon a maiority of us were on the
Varsity teams. With the spring came our "Sophomore Shipwreck,"
a class sponsored dance, and the knowledge that next year would
be all important to us.
With zeal and vigor we entered our Junior year. We elected
our officers: Richie Woidyla, president, Anthony Calandriello, vice-
president, Barb De Piero, secretary, and Joyce Chap, treasurer.
How eagerly we awaited the arrival of our rings, made the plans
and preparations for our party, "Autumn on the Campus", and re-
hearsed our play, "Do You Trust Your Boyfriend". Most of us be-
came well-known. Soon one of the most important events in our
lives became not the dream which it long had been, but a reality-
our Junior Prom.
The charming contestants of the Miss Arnold Constable
contest. The winner is chosen for looks, poise, and per-
sonality. Can you guess the winner? The lucky girl was

Senior Class Adviser, Mrs. Frances Markey.
The Class of '59 met all their problems with a smile. We were
now "top dog". ln electing our officers we chose those who would
lead us through our last year at G.H.S. - Georgia Verish, presi-
dent, Fran Perrone, vice-president, Jane Messler, secretary, and
Richie Woidyla, treasurer. We cheered our teams on to many vic-
tories and after our losses, patted them on the back and said, "We
tried our best". We were leaders. Despite the College Board pre-
parations, we still found time for the fun and preparation for our
"Sadie Hawkins Dance", and making hearts for "Haven of Hearts",
our Valentine Dance. Expectantly, we looked forward to a magical
month-June-which brought Class Night, the Senior Social at the
Waldorf, and our very special night-the one for which we had
worked and prepared so long-GRADUATION NIGHT.

on to the night of the Junior Party, "The Roaring
Twenties." Those zany Charleston dresses, the old
racoon coats, the many strings of beads and cute
headbands made the girls look as mom once had.
The boys wore gayly striped blazers and straw
hats. A roaring time was had by all.
Our dramatic spectacular, the annual Junior
Play which was "Shy Guy" was presented on
April lOth. And what talent was revealed!

FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
On the morning of September 4, 1958,
the Class of '63, eager and excited, entered
the doors of G.H.S. for the first time as high
After being initiated on September 9, the
frosh took their place as active members of
the student body. Their enthusiasm was
shown in the election of their class officers:
Ken Huebner, president, Valerie Furmanek,
vice president, Dot DePiero, secretary, and
Bill Azzaro, treasurer. Under the guidance
of Mrs. Ruth Manko, their genial class ad-
viser, the freshmen became acquainted with
social activities which included the Freshman
Party, "Autumn Holiday", and the Frosh
Dance, "Enchanted Evening".
The freshman class shows great promise
in becoming an outstanding group. They
look forward in anticipation to the novel
things to come in their future years at G.H.S.

Bewildered freshmen approach home rooms on opening day
Fashions and Events of 1958-1959
This was an unforgettable year in world events. We made
a tremendous step forward regaining the lead in the missile
race by sending a rocket past the moon and into orbit around
the sun. Another blow to Russia's propaganda image was the
censure of Boris Pasternak, author of the best-seller Dr.
Zhivago. Krushchev's hand was evident in the crisis over the
Quemoy lslands, Berlin, and Iraq. Marines landed in Leba-
non at that government's request to guard against Commu-
nist-agitated rebels. Revolutions against oppressive dictator-
ships culminated this year. Fidel Castro led his band of
bearded mountain-peasants in a successful overthrow of
Batista's regime. Also, rebels against the Chinese Communists
in Tibet were striving for freedom.
ln a lighter vein, Prince Akihito of Japan married a com-
moner - the first time in history. On the American scene,
two new states were added, Alaska and Hawaii, the first
since 1912. A new craze hit the American youngsters, the
hula-hoop. The New York Yankees, playing Milwaukee in the
World Series, came from behind to win. And finally, twenty-
three college students crowded themselves into a telephone
The movie "Gigi" captured the hearts of millions and nine
Academy Awards. Other top pictures of the year were "Cat
on a Hot Tin Roof", "The Defiant Ones", "Separate Tables",
and "l Want to Live'.'
We could always be found either humming or singing
"To know Him is to Love Him", "Come Softly To Me", "Ve-
nus", "Charlie Brown", and "Tom Dooley". Beside old favor-
ites as Elvis Presley and Pat Boone, teenagers latched on to
youngsters such as Ricky Nelson, Frankie Avalon, Fabian, and
the most unlikely of all, a chipmunk named Alvin.
The fashions of the day were inspired by movies and the
year was full of crazes, new styles, and high-fashioned fads.
The typical girl's wardrobe took on a complete change-from
the shapeless sack through the empire and trapeze to the
natural fitted waist. The men were glad to know the natural
waistline was finally back.
The school-girl found herself wearing leotards in various
colors, stripes, and patterns. The "College Look" was here
to stay and with it all the bulky sweaters, pleated skirts, and
button down collars. The boys reveled as did the girls in
chucka-boots and desert boots in addition to the good old
reliable sneaker and bucks. The newest style was the "Bo-
hemian look" with an emphasis on black. ln coniunction with
the Bohemian look, the hair was worn long and straight and
much emphasis was placed on make-up, although little or no
lipstick was worn.
ln hair styles, almost everything was in vogue. The
"bubble cut" a longer version of the poodle, the "pixie" and
the old stand-bys, the page boy and pony tail, dominated
ln men's styles the "ivy" look still prevailed. The chino
pants and crew-neck sweaters were found in nearly every
male student's wardrobe, and crewcuts were iust the haircut
for our ivy leaguers. Of course not all men looked good in
crewcuts, so those who didn't, wore the "Chicago" haircut,
the "D.A.", or mambo hair styles.

Varsity and J.V.
With Coach Art Argauer at the helm, the varsity foot-
ball team enjoyed their most successful season since 1948,
winning six games while losing only three - to East Ruther-
ford, Lyndhurst, and Clifton. In the Passaic Valley Conference,
the Boilermakers placed fourth with a three-won, three-lost
The Purple and Gold played host to Lodi for the first
game of the season. The impenetrable Boilermakers' defense
led by seniors - Bill Ventura, Sal Benanti, Tony Graceffo,
and Ed Verga - yielded only one first down to the Rams
while holding them scoreless so that Garfield came out on
top, 7-0. Rutherford provided the Boilermakers their next
opposition. The Bulldogs were far outclassed and were held
from tallying as the Purple and Gold riddled the Rutherford
defense numerous times with end sweeps, slants and plunges
to win, 21-O. Playing their initial Passaic Valley Conference
contest, the Boilermakers, sparked by the superb passing of
Dennis Rozum, convincingly whipped Passaic, 18-7, to break
a long losing streak to the Indians.
Garfield tasted defeat for the first time at the hands of
East Rutherford, who went on to capture the Passaic Valley
Conference title. Fighting hard, the Argauermen iust couldn't
keep up with the all-state quarterback Julian Malinski and
the rest of the Wildcats and bowed, 20-7. Fully recovered,
the Purple and Gold bounced back to defeat Paterson Cen-
tral, 12-7, for their fourth victory. The following week, Coach
Argauer's aggregation iourneyed into Essex County for an
independent clash with Belleville. The Boilermakers easily
posted a 19-6 triumph.
Next the team traveled to Lyndhurst for their fourth con-
ference game. The Golden Bears managed to wreck Garfield's
defense and breeze by, 44-O. After having a week in which
to convalesce, the Boilermakers trounced Paterson Eastside,
18-0, in the loop. This was the third team that the Purple
and Gold kept from scoring. After this, only one tilt remained
on the schedule. lt was the long traditional Thanksgiving Day
clash with the Mustangs of Clifton. Although the Boilermakers
were handicapped with a number of iniuries, the Purple and
Gold bravely battled the Mustangs at home. But the fleet-
footed Cliftonites outran Garfield's defensive units to win by
the score of 38-0 and finish second in the conference.
ln the 13 years in which Mr. Argauer has served as head
football coach in Garfield, his teams have won 126, lost 40,
and tied 6. Under Coach Argauer, Boilermaker football
squads have won the Passaic Valley Conference title twice
outright while they tied for it the same number of times. An
interesting highlight is that when Garfield had its champion-
ship football team which went to Miami in 1938, the Boiler-
makers were not in the conference. Garfield came into the
Passaic Valley Conference in the fall of 1939.
Coach Argauer's coaching staff was composed of Bob
Volonnino, line coach, Bill Gatyas, backfield coach, Johnny
Cocula, iayvee coach, Jules Lazicki, freshman coach, Johnny
Hollis and Ciro Barcellona, assistants, and Fred Malkowski,
Senior members of the 1958 edition of the varsity foot-
ball squad were: Sal Benanti, Pete Buglino, Tom Ciffo, Alessi
Cimino, Ralph Calia, Tony Calandriello, John Durski, Tony
Graceffo, captain, Jack Graceffo and Paul Hoffman.
Also: Joe Marino, Ed Pirog, Bob Pritch, Dennis Pelcher,
Frank Pilewski, Gasper Rigolosi, Fred Staudinger, Bill Ventura,
Ed Verga, and John Wasylyk. All Senior members of the foot-
ball squad were letter winners.

The Purple and Gold concluded the season in fine fashion
by coasting past lodi's frosh, 28-O.
lt is interesting to note that the Boilermakers' powerful
offensive units, led by Ken Huebner, Andy Szucs, Lou Shor-
tino, and Bobby Schultz, tallied 187 points against all oppo-
sition or an average of 20-7f9 points per contest.
Garfield's defensive units limited all opposition to just 40
points. That is, in an average freshman game, the opponents
scored but 4-419 points against the Boilermaker yearlings.
This should prove, if nothing else, that the team to watch
in l96O and '61 is none other than Garfield's.
This was Mr. Lazicki's ninth year as freshman football
mentor. ln commenting on the season he said: "There were
no disciplinary problems and, of course, the deciding factor
was the co-operation and spirit the boys gave us." Coach
Lazicki was also generous in his praise of Ciro Barcellona,
assistant coach, who has served in that capacity for three
And it certainly was a winning season. During the course
of the season, the first year football players compiled a
record of eight wins, no losses and one tie. It was more than
enough for the yearlings to be awarded the coveted North
Jersey Freshman League title.
ln the debut game of the season, the Boilermakers trek-
ked to Kearny for a clash with the Kardinals. Both teams
were held scoreless in the first quarter, but in the last minutes
of the second period the Purple and Gold's Billy Azzara
crashed through to tally the only touchdown of the game.
Next, the Boilermakers posted wins over Irvington, 20-7,
Rutherford, 21-O, Belleville, 32-6, Orange, 14-O, East Ruther-
ford, 27-l3, Lyndhurst, 32-7.
For the next to the last game of the campaign, Coach
Lazicki's aggregation iourneyed to Nutley for a battle with
the heralded Nutley frosh-one of the members of the Big
Ten. The Boilermakers were winning, 7-0, only several min-
utes remained but the Maroon Raiders struck back with a
touchdown and a conversion to tie the game, 7-7. For tying
the Boilermakers, Nutley was awarded second-place in the
Freshman League, behind Garfield.

Although the varsity basketball squad re-
corded only five wins while dropping 16, the
Boilermaker cagers "never say die." They
played each and every contest with glowing
ardor - no matter how difficult the going got.
'Garfield's string of losses may be attributed
to the fact that the 1958-59 season was pri-
marily a rebuilding year for John Cocula, head
coach. There were but five seniors on the en-
tire team while the balance was comprised of
one freshman, six sophomores, and five
Nevertheless the Boilermakers pulled sev-
eral surprises. The first one was the eighth game
of the season when Garfield faced Lodi, long-
time rival, in an independent clash, since the
Rams are non-Passaic Valley Conference mem-
bers. Lodi was very highly regarded and, it
The other surprise came in the 16th game
against Nutley. The Maroon Raiders, it should
be written, had iust beaten Bloomfield, a team
that had a 64 game winning skein until they
met Nutley. So, again, Garfield was the under-
dog. But the underdogs are apt to surprise,
especially in high school play, and that is iust
what the Boilermakers did. Led by Charlie Al-
berti's 23 points and Ralph Calia's 15 tallies,
Garfield nipped Nutley, 66-62, to take the
honor of scoring the biggest upset of the year
in non-conference play.
A school record was almost broken by Al-
berti in the Eastside game when he tallied 36
points - lust four shy of the school record set
by Dick Jaskot in 1950.
Top scorer for the Boilermakers on the season
was Alberti who tallied 316 points, Ventura
was runner-up with 294. Charlie was also the
was thought, would give the Purple and Gold
a good lashing.
But the Boilermakers were determined to de-
feat Lodi that night no matter what the odds
were. And they did - 67 to 65. lt was one of
the most thrilling games of the season, if not
the most thrilling. Captain Billy Ventura had a
particularly good night with 24 points which
made him high man.

Freshmen Basketball Team
The freshman basketball team finished the i958-59 season with a .500 mark
- i0 wins and the same number of losses. The frosh also had the honor of having
a member of their team, Ken Huebner, break a school record.
The record that was broken was held by Greg Boryczewski, who during the
T957-58 season, tallied 320 points for the season to establish a school record. But Opponent Garfield
Ken knew that records'were made to be broken and he did iust that. During this Def Bellfville-34 -- 23-Home
past season he scored 348 points, way over Boryczewski's total. No frosh cager in gig Lzdzifas ' gg-away

Rules Which Govern Our School
Garfield High School's Student Council
was organized to promote harmonious
relations among the faculty -and students,
and to make a better school scholastically,
athletically, and socially. Now in its third
year, the Student Council is operating
more smoothly and efficiently than ever
Under the leadership of the executive
committee, which consists of Linda Hartos,
President, Carolyn Catenaro, Vice-Presi-
dent, Veronica Simone, Secretary, and
Carole Coffey, Treasurer, the Council has
made a number of accomplishments this
year. A new Christmas scene was added
to the exterior decorations, paid assem-
blies were inaugurated, Student Council
pins were purchased by the members, a
Student-Activities-Ticket Program was set
up for next year, and an induction cere-
mony for the new officers was adopted.
All of these accomplishments could not
have been made without the expert as-
sistance of Mr. John Prelich, the Council's
adviser, and Miss Gladys Filippone, as-
sembly director. Through their diligent
work and guidance, the Student Council
had a most successful year.

Previews Our School Life
The core of Garfield High School is the
school newspaper, The Quill. The news page
covers and interprets new happenings around
school. The feature page includes Kat's Kor-
ner, Snoopy Scoops, the fashion story, movie
and book reviews, clever cartoons, fresh and
appealing stories, interviews, a crossword
puzzle, and probably most important of all,
the editorials. The sports page has recaps of
past games as well as a column on hunting
and fishing and a girl's point of view on
sports. Mrs. Marie Sauer guides the literary
staf while Miss Florence Adler, advising the
business staff, handles the money and covers
the circulation end of the paper. Besides writ-
ing the stories, reporters also help the editors
and assistant editors with make-up.
Near the end of the year, Mrs. Sauer and
a few of the staff attended the Columbia
Scholastic Press Association conference held
at Columbia University. They were present at
lectures, meetings, and panel discussions for
a three day period.
Working on the Quill was especially bene-
ficial for those students who planned to
make a career of iournalism after graduation
from high school. lt also encouraged pupils
who enioyed expressing themselves through

"Don't stop, iust keep working!" These
are the words of our industrious and creative
adviser, Mrs. Edith Briefstein. The yearbook
staff emanating from our iunior year found
that even after editors were chosen and the
theme decided upon, an enormous amount
of work remained to be done.
Throughout all our darkest moments, mo-
ments when deadlines were approaching,
write-ups and lay-outs had to be changed,
and many other unforeseen circumstances,
the dawn came through and with it a solu-
tion. The business staff, in order to secure
money to produce the yearbook, sponsored
one of the most successful fund raising proi-
ects in G.H.S.'s history - a cookie sale. ln
addition to the sale of the cookies they did
all the clerical work under the watchful eyes
of Miss Florence Adler, business adviser.
Our book has recorded the highlights of
our school year. Those of us who helped to
produce it are confident it will reawaken
cherished memories in years to come.

A scent of incense greeted us at the door of an orien-
tal garden. As we strolled through the gay paradise, we
heard Tony Charles and his band playing our theme song,
The well, located in the center of the garden, attracted
much attention. As coins were tossed and fell to the bot-
tom of the well, wishes were made for a heavenly night.
The Chinese writing with its significant meanings, bedecked
the walls. A dim light was cast upon the garden by the
colorful array of lanterns above. The tinkling of wind
chimes were heard faintly as we swirled past the garden
At last the court assembled for the long-awaited mo-
ment. The eighteen attendants formed the candle-lit aisle
through which our honored king and queen, Sal Scro and
Carolyn Catenaro, passed before reaching the throne.
Awaiting them at the throne were our prince and princess,
Frank Trentacoste and June Burek, who placed the glitter-
ing crowns upon their heads. Our royal couple and their
attendants danced in ecstasy and enchantment to the
heavenly strains of "Shangri-la".
Oriental Motif Transports Us To Shangri-La
As the beat of Tony CharIes's orchestra is stepped up, couples dance around our wishing well.
Couples at our oriental prom dance dreamily to "Shangri-la". 115

Parents Promote Closer Relationship
Parents strolled through the halls of G.H.S. in search of their next class. Hurry, don't be lute!
The purpose of any educational system is to de-
velop the character and the educational capacity of
the students. "Back to School" Night in GarfieldiHigh
School was developed to show the parents of the
students how their children are developing their ca-
pacities with modern educational equipment.
"Back to School" Night began with parents' as-
sembling in the Auditorium. They were met by Dr.
M. S. Kline, principal. The parents reported to home
rooms, where attendance was taken, and then pro-
ceeded to follow their child's daily schedule of
classes. In these classes they met the faculty, saw
the equipment their children used, and were oriented
as to the manner in which the particular subiect was
taught. At the end of the schedule the parents re-
ported to the cafeteria where they were served cake
and coffee provided by the P.T.A.

Junior Achievement is a nation-wide organization which
familiarized teenagers with the knowledge of business opera-
tions. After they had decided on a company name and a
product or products that they wish to manufacture, the group
then sold stock and invested the money from the stock in
material, rent fees, etc. Making the product was compara-
tively easy, but selling it was the real challenge. For, in at-
tempting to sell their product, these teenagers had to use all
the initiative and selling power that they possessed. After
they sold their product, the money was paid to the workers,
officers, and the stockholders. The latter, if the product sold
well and the company realized a profit, even got more money
back than they had first invested.
But the main purpose of J.A. was not a monetary one.
lt was to teach teenagers how to get along in the business
world and how to understand the complexities of big busi-
ness. Moreover, it gave them a chance to become acquainted
with other young people their own age and also gave them
the chance to make things, using their own minds and hands.
Mr. J. Prelich is the adviser of the Garfield companies
which included Jamlen, Zorron, Docorama, and Chem-Mist.
