MOSELEY Principal of Gilbert School B. S. Massachusetts State College M. Ed. Harvard University MESSAGE TO CLASS OF '48 You, the Class of lf-348, have witnessed the greatest epoch-mak- ing events thus tar in the history ot the world, ln addition to your experiences during the past four years you have noted the use of the atomic bomb, the ending of the second world war, and the birth of the United Nations. You have observed great contributions to man's scientific knowledge but little to man's understanding ot him- self. Still existing, however, are problems of vast importance which must be solved if our civilization is to survive in a peaceful World. The hope for the future, to a great extent, falls on your generation. This should be a challenge for you to go out into the world as in- telligent citizens to help solve some of these problems. We, ot the faculty, wish you the greatest success in your venture. 8 Q50 WW-335113 N, MARION E- AU-EN MARION L. BUZZELL IOHN G. ATWOOD Physics, Chemistry B. A. Lafayette Pd. B.

This year two new teachers, Miss Morehardt and Miss Schultz, made their appearance in the halls of Gilbert. The former will attempt to im- prove the speech of Gilbertonians while the latter will instruct the fairer sex in the culinary arts. Paint buckets flew between Gilbert and T. H. S., but the Mad River promptly stopped unsuspecting T. H. S. Also, liggers plays Dick Tracy with a "gat" Bob and Dorothy met. 1 wonder how long it will last. Look up in the sky. lt's a bird! It's a plane! Nol It's Miss Bigelmanl At last the nemesis of all the youth of Gilbert has taken up quarters in the boiler room. What is it? The Mongerl He sees all, hears all, and "nose",all, but tells it differently. Both happened in the same year: Gilbert de- feated Torrington in basketball and baseball. You should have seen the students doing a snake dance up Main Street. Phyllis B., Marie C., Marcia S,, Eddice R., Catherine H., Dolores A,, and Pat M. are quite a sight as they parade about the corridors in their multi-colored stockings. The boys are going mad. Flash! Mary DiCara won the Freshman Es- say Contest with her "Wild Nightmare". Niel was voted typical freshman boy, Marcia, typ- ical girlg and Millie Avery, the most loquacious. Two additions have been made to the cheer- ing squad: Dolores Amigo and Virginia Coffey. Farming is still an ambition of a' few, accord- ing to the award presented to Richard Galaise. Hollywood, beware! The Gilbert Dramatic Club has come to town with "Ten Per Cent Tommy". Maybe they'll win an Oscar. l doubt if 1'd call basketball relaxing, but Beatrice Galaise does, and her description is believable. l'll have to close now but will be back in about three months. SEPT. 1945 Dear Diary, leepersl The place is still the same - home- work, homework, homeworkl Returning as a high and mighty sophomore, Catherine Head writes an essay on "Advice to a Freshman". I wonder what Bill Newett's been up to by his statement: "Nail polish makes the girls look foolish, and lipstick gets you into trouble when you get home." The boys are all beginning to wear bow ties - and do they look funny! Phyllis thinks they belong on characters like Louie. I saw the basketball game, and are we ever proud of Zip Hayes as iorwardl I wonder it he'll ever go on to success? According to "Bubbles" Bill Benbow's dream girl has to be tall, have brains - and well, he'll decide the rest when he sees her. Darn it, I Wish I were tall. I used a whole box oi kleenex when I read Laura Nader's essay, "Lest We Forget," in memory of our servicemen. Ted Iohnson's picture was in the paper. He would make a good specimen in our biology class. Neil Kelsey wrote an essay in the G.S.N. de- scribing his pet peeve. I wonder it Marcia has anything to do with it. Millie Avery was voted the most loquacious sophomore. leepersl I thought I was bad, but now I know I'm worse. Marcia Sickmund is considered the most sophisticated girl in the class. A The Monger has started a new column in the paper called the "Gruesome Twosome." Most of the twosomes are gruesome. Al Dornbrowski wrote a composition about Latin. Geel Here I am still struggling with Caesar and getting nowhere. Shirley Iohnson was chosen the "Fantasy Belle" at the Spring Fantasy Dance sponsored by the Tri-Y. 9 vu We had a riot ot a meeting in the Dramatic Club when Gloria Pandolto presented "At the Hairdressers". There were many laughs and also many red faces. Well, Diary, that's all tor now. I must pack for my two-week vacation at camp. SEPT. 1945 Dear Diary, Golly, does it seem swell to be back in school again Cthe first day at leastl. A surprise awaited us at good old Gilbert, namely, three new teachers: Misses Gellison, Swett, and Bennett. Gilbert students surely enjoy music. Why? Well, this year there are a mere 100 enrolled in the Glee Club. Miss Sonier must be in her glory. The G.S.N. started off on the right track this year with the addition ot three new columns: "Fashions", "Guess Who", "What If," and "Question ot the Week". With leaves turning and cooler weather ap- proaching, the Tri-Y sponsored an appropriate dance called Autumn Serenade. Signs have been posted on blackboards and bulletin boards announcing the arrival of Kil- roy. I wonder it any one has ever seen him. I doubt it he will last with the Black Phantom in his competition. v O My, we even have flowers growing here at Gilbert, for instance, chrysanthemums and morning glories. I wonder if Beverly and Ed- dice appreciate the compliment. Imaginel lohn I-Iayes writes an essay on football, although he doeslplay-doesn't he? Have you heard the new shout: 'll-Iey, chick- en, where's your koop?" Ianet is certainly making quite a name for herself. Have you noticed Bill Newett's red hair and green eyes? "Bubbles" has, according to her column in G.S.N. About time, is all I can say, concerning the dancing classes for boys. Maybe some of them will start a stag line in the near future. Man, is that Neil Kelsey popular with the Tor- rington crowd. They seem to think he's pretty good in basketball. Goshl What a herol SEPT. 1947 Dear Diary, Well, my final year brings forth some new attractions to dear old Gilbert when nine new teachers appear. They are Misses Mutch, Rice, Field, Matteson, Lawton, Caron and Coleman, and Messrs. Kent and Mead. This year old G.S.N. is a really new paper, and in it we have added a Gossip Column. When the students were asked to tell what ac- tivity they would like to see at Gilbert, hockey won the votes. My, my, what is the world coming to? Iarnes I-Ialnon wants bobby-pins for Christmas. Tchl Tchl Some people have all the luck, for example, Dot Riiska, with her faultless complexion. The industrious girls started a basketball team which, confidentially, lasted only a month. What's wrong, Koop and Sickmund? Was the exercise too hard for you? Coach Nichols and his five "pennies" have had a successful year. The five previously mentioned pennies proved to be quite fascinat- ing when they were interviewed for the G.S.N. At last the truth is revealed! Senior members of the Miracle Board for 1948 include P. Blais, S. Eddy, A. Bazzano, W. New- ett, I. Hayes, I. Koop, R. Fancher, R. Barton, B. Kostak and W Wilcox. With this board how can the book lack success? The "New Look" appears at Gilbert! The boys are wearing shorter trousers, and Vincent receives aid in keeping the floors clean because of trailing skirts. Well, Diary, my four years have ended. Time does fly, doesn't it? Four years ago I thought that graduation must be fun. Now I'm not so sure of that. These four years in Gilbert have been happy ones, and the friendships here have been deep. I wonder now what the fu- ture will bring? V- en io? 6 ,. V Q !

Membership in the club is open to any student who possesses some dramatic ability and has been a probationer for a year. ' The club meets weekly, and programs are presented which prove of value in increasing the members' knowledge of drama and stage production. The fourth annual Christmas program was presented before the student body on the morn- ings ot December 17 and 18. The one-act play. "Christmas on Erie Street" by Graydon Goss, conveyed to the audience the true spirit ot Christmas. This production enabled all club members to participate in some phase of dra- matics: acting, directing, make-up, costuming, and stage work. On April 17 two one-act plays were success- fully presented for the public. The Gilbert Dra- matic Club plans to use the money earned from these spring plays tor the purchase of much needed stage equipment.

NEWS BOARD The most outstanding feature of The Gilbert School News this past year has been the form- ing of its own independent newspaper, com- plete with pictures. In former years the News was connected with the local paper and was printed in it every week. Now it is issued twice a month and is managed on both subscriptions and advertisements. The News originated on Ianuary 12, 1935, by Miss Florence Brownell, its first faculty advisor. Since that time it has grown from a staff of six to the present board of thirteen members under the direction of Miss Helen Sheldrick. This in- cludes seven seniors and six juniors, plus the various reporters from every club, and the typists. The Gilbert School News was again repre- sented at the last Connecticut Scholastic Press Association, held in October. I With its many features, the News arouses the students' interest in extra-curricular activities, sports, and helpful drives. The members of the board and its faculty advisor should be com- mended on the very fine work in completing the fourteenth year of circulation.

Under the capable direction of Leonard Stine, oi Kingston, New York, the thorough sectional rehearsal sched- ule, iollowed twice daily, led to a profitable week and ended with an informal concert held at the Methodist Church.

Although a summer vacation had intervened since a previous meeting, a very real interest was evident. Later many new members, both boys and girls, were admitted 'nto the club, which met each Wednesday in he Lecture Room. ln lanuary new officers were elected for the year. Because oi the resignation of Ianet Sey- mour, chairman ot the program committee, Caroline Nix was elected to take her place with an assistant, Ioseph Monyak.

Because only very little can be accomplished in one club period, the group has met each week this year tor an extra hour of work after school. Although the club has been in existence only three years, it has become well established and is now mak- ing plans tozpurchase an enlarger. Before tak- ing this step, however, the members are plan- ning a trip to the ottice of The Hartford Courant in order to receive more knowledge in the use ot enlargers. At present the club expects to participate in The National Photography Con- test, which is to be held in May. THE OFFICERS SGCTSTUFY Presidem Irene Rebillard Wiinqm Wilcox Treasurer . .

At present three projects are being carried out for the benefit oi the lunior Bed Cross. First, sophomore, junior, and senior girls of the Home- making Department, under the direction ot Miss Matteson and Miss Lawton, are making skirts een years ot age. Second, Mrs. Scotts Spanish Club is making an album describing Winsted and the Gilbert School. This album will be sent to Spain, and in return, the club will receive an album from Spain. Third, under Mr, Mead's direction the boys in the Mechanic Arts Course are making game boards such as those used for Cribbage and chinese checkers.

This aim is accomplished by vari- ous projects selected by the members. Early in the year the students completed a set of drawings depicting scenes of South America. These views are now on the Walls of the Spanish classroom. At present the mem- bers are Working on a Red Cross International Album to be sent to Spain. This will contain letters to Spanish students, drawings of Win- sted, and descriptions of our customs and in- dustries. In exchange We shall receive a similar Spanish album. Other activities have included corresponding with Spanish students abroad, singing of Span- ish songs, listening to Spanish records, and the conducting of a chapel program on Pan-Ameri- can Day. Secretary Herbert Langill THE OFFICERS Treasurer President Nina Andrews Christian Iauch Scribe Vice-president Rita Schnier Paul Haynes Advisor Mr. Mead THE ART CLUB Every Friday afternoon informal classes of the Art Club meet for approximately three hours. During this time members, under the direction of Mr. Mead, faculty advisor, concen- trate upon the phase of art which especially interests them. The result is that the members now have a sizeable stock of materials includ- ing oils, Water colors, pastels, tempera, char- coal, clay, colored inks, crayons, and various types of paper and pencils. In the future the group plans to do Iunior Red Cross Work and go on severalltield trips in order to paint land- scapes. ln this way it is hoped that individuals will discover special talents which they possess. lt is Mr. Mead's hope that art will some day become a definite, integrated part of the cur- 55 riculurn at Gilbert.

With the advancing age oi machines many interesting developments are brought out. Dis- cussions consist ot new ideas about machines which companies are making throughout the United States. At meetings the members work on individual projects such as thread-cutting, gear-cutting, taper-turning, and many other constructive operations. The Machine Shop Club has become one of the most popular clubs in the school, and the boys who have joined, realizing how important the knowledge of modern machinery is, are eager to become more skilled in this held.

These begin with the pledge, "We, the girls of the Tri-Y, promise to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian conduct' To raise money for the Y.M.C.A. Building Fund the club this year put on two dances which proved successful as social highlights. Later, two food sales helped in the cause. For its own enjoyment the group has had an able entertainment committee, which kept the members interested by sponsoring swimming meets and socials. In the early fall and late spring pledging also added much to the enjoy- ment of the members. amm- President 512235252015 Ioseph Banzano Sergeant-at-arms Vggflllpxgijijsnt Ralph Runnell Secretary Advisor Paul Shapiro HI-Y The Winsted Chapter of the Hi-Y was reor- ganized in l934 through the efforts of Robert Burr, Carl Scofield, joseph Burns, and Roy La Montagne. The clubs' activities have varied through the years. Previously, the club held suppers, presented motion pictures, and spon- sored vocational talks given to the club mem- bers by prominent citizens of Winsted. This year, however, the Hi-Y has again been reor- ganized with the result that the old system was discarded and a new one installed. New com- mittees were established, and new projects started. We now look to the future Hi-Y for bigger and better things. Meyer Rosansky , rn' fa Y, Qi 5 U4 K" if ,pf "'-N 2-.4 Mi cyfin fy J, bf J 45' Q3 ,gl , v X EQ 'J' NZ.

The Yellowjackets were far more impressive, however, than their record of three wins and five losses show. The schedule of Coach Kent's charges was dotted with the top ranking "B" teams in the state. Gilbert started off in impressive fashion with their 6-O win over always-strong Enfield High, at Enfield. A fast-passing attack, dotted with a few deceptive running plays, countered the win for the Blue and Golders. Gilbert then traveled down state to Darien, deeper in re- serve strength, however, and ran rough shod over the game Kentmen, winning by the one- sided score of 38-6. Gilbert played its first home game of the season against Coach Frank Crisfai's East Haven eleven. With Gilbert playing poor ball, however, the East Havenites opened with an uncanny passing attack that ended in a lZ-O defeat for Gilbert. Lewis, State Class B Cham- pion the previous year, furnished the opposi- tion for Gilbert's next game. After playing a hard fought scoreless first half the tired Gilbert regulars weakened, and the aggressive lads from Southington took advantage of the lack of reserves and scored a terrific 33-0 win. Gil- bert showed a powerful passing machine in the next game as they downed Seymour 19-7, show- ing great offensive strength throughout the game. Gilbert quieted the power-driven Sey- mour offensive with a great defensive show in the waning seconds of the game. Gilbert next defeated a determined Canton High by a 19-7 score with Gilbert's scat backs breaking away for long gains. Gilbert scored quickly and often in the first half and played excellent defensive ball in the second half. She then dropped a hard-fought l3-l loss to an ag- gressive Farmington High as a questionable last minute score. The following week, on a rain-drenched field, the aggressive Yellow- jackets went down to defeat at the hands of Staples High, of Westport, with the score of l3-6.

BASKETBALL Starting the season with a brillant array of holdovers, Coach Dave Nichol's Gilbert School basketball team took over its tough schedule with much zest and lived up to its advance notices by qualifying for the State CIAC Class B tourney, after completing the regular season of eighteen games. The annual Alumni clash, on Thanksgiving Night, opened the '47-'48 season with a bang. Playing against a far more experienced team, Gilbert led most of the game until the waning minutes, when the old grads surged ahead to win 43-31. As a warm-up to the annual Torrington game, Gilbert eked out a 32-31 victory over a determined Canton High School five then went up against the "Big Red." After dropping be- hind in the first half, Gilbert put on a great sec- ond half drive to rip up the Class A runner. With the score reading 32-30 Torrington stole the ball and froze it for the remaining few sec- onds. Opening relations with Sacred Heart, the storming Yellowjackets stung the Waterburians 45-40 in an overtime win and, following this game, dropped a powerful Seymour team by the score of 50-36. Not taking any chances with another close game, Gilbert drove Canton through the floor with a scintillating 53-19 score but then dropped three straight games, losing to Windsor twice by the score of 5l-50 and 32-30 and dropping the return game with Torrington 58-34. She then stormed back into the win column with a decisive 42-27 victory over dangerous Farming- ton High after which the Nichol's men defeated Searles, the winner of the small high school tourney of Massachusetts, by the very close score of 39-37. Gilbert then dropped a 41-33 loss in a protested game with Watertown High. Immediately, storming Gilbert came charging back to win over Lewis High, of Southington, by 55-36 and then avenging the contest-defeated Watertown 38-22, after holding them scoreless for the entire first period. Gilbert now dropped two: the first, a gruelling defeat at the hands of Farmington High by the score of 50-325 and the next, to a game Lewis High 46-41. Gilbert finally met East Haven High at the Payne Whitney Gymnasium, New Haven, in the Class B playdown, and although going down to defeat, she gave a good account of herself. East Haven scored on three finish bas- kets with about 2 minutes left in which to win 45-38. PW I I I l I S .Q- J fur' dal ' 3 wa .ft 4 Li fy' U a in in J WE? yy .

Since starting, the boys have shown movies and have had for speakers at their meetings some of the top men in sports. The club, formed by the lettermen of the school, is now trying to promote comradeship and a friendly relationship among the boys, not only of Gilbert but also of other communities. As a result of this aim, several of the club of! ficers have sent out letters to similar organiza- tions in other schools throughout the state, and with the information thus gained the fellows have welded a strong and firm club. They have, moreover, been instrumental in putting into some kind of athletic field boys who were not engaged in varsity athletics. From some of these lads will come the material for next year's varsity. The boys will have many other good deeds to account for on future dates when funds are raised for the purpose of rewarding the ath- letes.
