JAMES BURKE lfjimmyll Riverton june 6, 1928 MECHANIC ARTS We might be giving "Jimmy" away if we say that he isn't as shy and as quiet as he appears to be. We only know that still water runs deep.

ANNE BURWELL Ward's Hill Dec. 6, 1926 GENERAL Take things as they come, and enjoy life as much as possible- that's Anne's theory, and it works -with her.

JOSEPH CADRAIN lfloell 11 North Main St. Sept. 9, 1928 MECHANIC ARTS If you hear a horn blow, tires creech, and see a car come around corner doing about 90, then oe" is driving.

Mabel may appear to be quiet but have you ever heard her defend her ideas? Although she is not Irish, she follows very closely in their footsteps in being quiet, stubborn, and set in her ways. BARBARA CORSER IIBMLJI 1 Bank St. Nov. 8, 1928 COMMERCIAL Newly introduced to the "Gold- I Halls," "Barb" has adequately ljusted herself in all ways.

PEGGY CURTIS ffpegil 19 Strong Terrace Jan. 10, 1927 COMMERCIAL Peg's ready smile is just the thing needed when everything seems to be going wrong.

JEAN CROWLEY Williams Ave. Nov. 1,' 1928 COMMERCIAL Like her position in the band as majorette, Jean may DOI be the loudest person in a group, but she plays" an important part among her friends.

DONALD HERMAN "Herm" 42 Walnut St. Jan. 1, 1928 COMMERCIAL We might not be able to stom- ach those odd oral comps, "Herm," but we sure do enjoy your singing and playingffootball. One can't help liking that "chuckly" dispo- sition and fine sportsmanship of "Herm's" which has made him a popular member of our class.

Extra-curricular activities: Sci- ence Club 3, 4, Gilbert News Re- porter 4.

The eleven members of the Council include four seniors, four juniors, two sophomores, and one freshman. Each serves for one year except juniors who also serve during the senior year. Members of the Student Council for the school year 1945-46 are: Prefident-WiHiam Ryan Vice-Prericienl-Neil Kelsey S ecretary-Patricia Mulville Edward Scofield William Welcome john Staszowski Edith Altschuler Carmelo Alderuccio Zita Darcey Anthony Bazzano Richard Carroll Faculty Adviron Mr. Henry Moseley Miss Dorothy Barton Mr. Charles Moore 40 9 6 GLEE CLUB The first activity, a choral clinic, was held at Highland Lake under the direction of Noble Cain with the Connecticut Music Educators Association as sponsors. A chorus of 52 students from five Connecticut high schools combined with 20 supervisors concluded the clinic with an informal concert at Central School, Mr. Cain conducting. Rehearsals continued during the summer and the club again presented "An Hour of Music" -for the Winsted Recreation Board with Miss Teresa Stich of New Hartford as guest soloist. Ivan Velikanoff was present at the final rehearsal and concert. Eighteen members of the chorus represented the school in an All-State Chorus which sang, under Noble Cain, at the Connecticut State Teachers' Convention held at Bridgeport in Octoberl These members also sang on Parents' Night with the Glee Club. The chorus opened the Seventh War Bond Drive at the Strand Theater. At Christmas, the trustees of the school were serenaded with carols. In the spring the annual concert was given.

The purpose of the club has always been to allow those interested in dramatics to increase their knowledge and to develop their ability in this Held. At Christmas the club presented for the faculty and student body "Why the Chimes Rang," a very effective pantomime arranged by Martha Race. This program made it possi- ble for all the club members to participate in some phase of dramatic work such asg make- up, costumes, music, scenery, acting, and stage craft. In March, a successful program of one-act plays was given as a public performance. With the proceeds from this entertainment the club hopes to purchase new stage equipment.

"The News must go on!" is the motto of this paper for and by the students. Addition of .various departments and special class and sport pages has made the News more repre- sentative of the student body and more able to encourage participation in sports, extra- curricular activities and various beneficial drives. At the twelfth convention of the Connecticut Scholastic Press Association held last November, the Gilbert School News presented an hour panel discussion on feature departments. The News is a tradition and an institution recognized by both the school and the community which it so ably serves.

Forty green candidates, the will to play, and the tireless efforts of Coach Viering molded a fast and deceptive team. A late start in the season cut the schedule short with only six games, the first going badly with Gilbert dropping a quick one to Lewis 27-0. The yellow-jackets came back fighting and gave junior Republic a sound drubbing to the tune of 27-0. Powerful and experienced Farmington High met with the same experience at the hands of the Gilbert gridstirs. The final score was 20-2. The Blue and Gold then journeyed to Enfield and scuttled the latter after a hard fought battle, 6-0. The most thrilling game of the season proved to be with Canton. Suffering from many injuries, Gilbert dropped out in the last minute with Canton emerging with a 19-13 victory. The last game of the season was with the Alumni. In this game, youth triumphed over the "old men"-the final score 6-O. During the season Gilbert scored a total of 74 points while 48 points were gathered by her opponents. . Letters were awarded to Manager Bernard Kolasinski, Co-captains "jimmy" Smith and "jimmy" Colligan, "Bob" Wabrek, Robert Stavnitzky, "Nick" Lazzaro, "Bart" johnson, "Lee" McKusick, Anthony Bazzano, Albert Cornelio, Louis Cornelio, "Art" Pinney, "Charley" Dietlin, "Tommy" Head, "Dick" Perry, "Edu Scofield, and Henry Rose.

However, this deficiency was made up for in lighting spirit. The greater number of games were not chalked up as victories for Gilbert, but the team never once lost that all-important trait of teamwork. Too much credit cannot be given to the players for the undaunted way in which they have upheld the school tradition of clean sportsmanship. The season opened with Gilbert's dropping a hard fought contest in their annual meeting with the Alumni, 38-27. Torrington then whipped the yellow-jackets with the one-sided score of 63-22. Gilbert made a comeback by handing Litchfield a defeat to the tune of 42-22. Distant and powerful Enfield drubbed the Blue and Gold cagers in a hardily contested game, 38-27. Canton High then fell prey to Gilbert and ended up on the wrong end of the score, 35-21. Plainville High-handed Gilbert another defeat, 32-20, which was followed by still another dealt by Farmington, 38-32. Gilbert came back to avenge an earlier defeat by smashing the Enfield quintet 40-30. Plainville, Torrington, and Canton respectively handed the yellow-jackets three more defeats, 31-21, 41-30, 57-47. Gilbert retaliated by trampling Searles with a score of 37-30. Rockville their downed the Gilbert squad with a score of 48-29. The Blue and Gold came back fighting and avenged a previous defeat by whipping Farmington 40-28. Litchfield then met Gilbert and defeat in a game that belonged to the yellow-jackets all the way-the score 46-21-an all-around victory for Gilbert. The season was topped off in a rip-roaring game with Rockville. It was anybody's game until Gilbert turned on the heat in the last three minutes of play and forged ahead to end the game 38-32. .W Q s. 15 Q my ,.Y , . ,uf . J. 5.

This was perhaps the most thrilling game of the season for the contest spread into the stands as well as on the field. This was but one of fourteen wins for Gilbert. On the other hand, the Blue and Gold chalked only a small four to the wrong side of the score book. Those teams that fell under the Gilbert battery were Westminster, Ansonia, Watertown, Naugatuck, Simsbury, Crosby, Wilby, Torrington, Leavenworth, and the ever-present alumni-these by impressive scores. Eight lettermen will be battling this year to put Gilbert at the top of the Naugatuck Valley League composed of Leavenworth, Crosby, Wilby, Ansonia, Naugatuck, Torrington, Watertown, and Gilbert. Players again on the squad include Smith, Kelsey, and Rose behind the plate, Lodge, Welcome, Herman, and Stavnitzky on the pitchers mound, johnson and Sears on first, Shandra and Gianseracusa at second, Ryan and Sheilield at shortstop, Wabrek in left field, and Sullivan in center field. Besides league games, Gilbert also has games with Plainville, Farmington, and pos- sibly Simsbury and the Rhode Island State College Freshmen. Assisting Coach "Pappy" Coleman this year will be Dave Nichols, recently returned to the Gilbert faculty and the coaching staff. 58 X X . my X N, x . ig! 4f x ..f-ff' IW!! ,JM Mi if ggi' - - X Q., ,A Q xv K f f fi EN W L7 4 X 1 f A b Xt F f , X 4 1 X X 0 Y f , i 44? , K g Rx Ex 47? , N3 Jf Ky gl E k f 1 wk A I7 , , 1' ' RU f 115 'Q' M' gn f 4' l 'Y THE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION The purpose of the Athletic Association is to raise funds for the various sports.
