Ts-W-- Closs History September, 1955, we are there. Yes, remember that first day at Gilbert, everybody in his new clothes and looking his best. C My how times have changed.J As freshmen we were subject to all sorts of antics by the upperclassmen. But soon we took our part in running the school by electing Fred Paris to the Student Council. We began to join clubs and really take an interest in the "Golden Halls. " Boy did we have fun when the social life got underway--the Dramatic Club's "By I upiter, " the Alumni Game, and the exchange concert with Keen, N. H. Our class was well represented in all these activities. But there were still- more new experiences Gilbert's marking system, exams, and of course how to get in good with the teachers. Though we had much fun, we all looked forward to those carefree summer days. No sooner had they come than they were over and we found ourselves back in school. But as sophomores, much wiser and more grown up than before. The center of things for 1956-57 was Room 9, Miss Little- field's room. Remember fish, snakes, hampsters, and the duck? And how could we forget the smell of phormaldihite? But we had other things on our mind too. This year we elected Sheila Garbus and Bob Ransford to the Student Council and had a more active part in the Youth Activity Council. Remember how we cheered for Butch Machowski, Tony Marino, Bob Hanley and Io Di Martino at the football games. We excelled especially in basketball and worked our way to the C. I. A. C. tournament with East Haven. The year was over too soon! With the beginning of the 57 -58 school year, we were at last upperclassmen. This year we were really big shots. We elected Sheila Garbus and Dennis O'Keefe to the Student Council for two -year terms and Pat Hunt and Ameila Nero for one year terms. Soon after the class officers were chosen -- President, Dennis O'Keefeg Vice President, Tony Italiag Secre- tary, Diane Pulverg Treasurer, Tony Marino. Our leaders and talented classmates really began to be noticed by the rest of the school. Sheila Garbus scored in the writing contest at C. S. P. A. and the "Gilberteens" went on to win second prize at the New England Music Festival and also to appear on T.V. Oh yes, remember the T. A. P. Minstrel and the other money raising campaigns. Two other events were the TB tests, with every- one anticipating a long visit to the sanatorium, and the unforgetable Faculty Game. As the year was drawing to a close everybody was looking forward to the prom. The juniors working on the committee were Tony Blatz, Jan Foster, Kathy White, Ann Martin, Dennis O'Keefe, and Bob Hanley. Kathy White and Sheila Garbus were full of stories to tell about Girls' State and Boy Hanley, Brian Dunn, Tom D'Amore, Billy Dyer, and Danny Ostapko had quite a bit to say about Boys' State. Bob Ransford and Butch Machowski were equally eager to share their experiences at the Bob Cousy Basketball Camp. Finally we had reached the top. We were seniors. Practically every club claimed a senior as its presi- dent. We were really going places this year. Sue Chapman, Judy Carey, and Gail Skilton became honorary members of the Winsted Womans' Club.

Cont'd from page 16 Large audiences enjoyed "Onions in the Stew" and the exciting Alumni Game. The Yellow Jackets ended in second place thanks to their talent and the cheering of the cheerleaders captained by Rozzie Hayes. Bob Hanely captured the office of senior president. Other officers were Ann Martin, vice- presidentg corresponding secretary, Diane Pulverg recording secretary, Tony Marinog and treasurer, Judy Carey. The class also chose two Student Coun- cil members, Butch Machowski, and Ann Martin, who became president of the council. About the sarne time, senior pictures were taken Although we enjoyed buying and trading them our parents felt a little different about it. Again this year Sheila Garbus won second prize at the C.S.P.A Soon work began on the '59 T. A.P. drive. George McCannon coped the State Chairmanship while Diane Pulver and Sheila Garbus were county and local chairmen respectively. Our last year at Gil- bert was filled with wonderful memories and events, and before we knew it June had arrived. Class night, another exciting prom, and of course graduation. These activities concluded our four wonderful years at Gilbert and these memories will remain upmost in our minds forever. Page 18 Senior Closs Officers 5 I Left to Right: 5 Anthony Marino, Ann 6 -' Martin, Robert Hanley, 4 Diane Pulver, and Judy Q....:Q f Carey S Being officers of the senior class is more than an honor -- it's a great responsibility. For it is the job of these students to help gain a closer relationship with the faculty and to get the seniors to work together for a successful year. It takes team work to plan graduation, the banquet, the class picnic, and fund raising activities for the class gift. The top -ranking student in the class of '59 is Brian Dunn with a 93. 62 average.

Everyone in our Dramatic Club should be praised for their hard work and professional acting. In Sports? Those exciting football games will always be remembered. Our boys kept their spirit and teamwork up no matter how the weather was. The basketball games were just as thrilling. The students and our special cheering squads always lead our boys onto victory. Social Life? This is the field that everyone likes most of all. Our first dance of the year is the "Senjun- Sopfrosh" sponsored by the Newsboard. The purpose of this dance is to "get acquainted' with our new fresh- man. Isn't it?? There are many more informal dances like that to follow. Then, of course, the Thanksgiving dance is the big one. This year the Glee Club put on "Winter Wonderland". It was a semi -formal dance, and very successful. The favorite of every year is the prom. Each year the theme is different, but the en- joyment always remains the same. Oh! what a llfel Do you remember all of these exciting events? You can probably recall many more that were just as much fun. But what does the future hold for you? Again, there are many fields into which you can en- ter and enjoy. It may be college, teaching, engineer- ing, or eventually marriage. whatever your choice is, we hope that you will be very successful and have as much enjoyment in the future years as you did in Gilbert.

The highlight of the Club's activities was the annual presenta- tion of a three -act play in which the members not only provided entertainment for the student body, but they also gained much in the fields of acting, make -up, and other back stage work. The 1958-59 product duction, "Onions in the Stew", starring Gail Hoxie, George Light, George McCannou and many tohers was directed by Mr. Sturtevant. The Dramatic Club meets weekly and enjoys both entertaining and instructive programs. New mem- bers are on probation for an entire year and are formally accepted into the Club at the banquet in June.

The Junior Varsity, under the direction of Leslie Ander- son, kept pace with the Varsity 's success by com- piling a 3-1-1 record. Closing out their football carrer at Gilbert were co -captain Tony Marino, Bob Hanley, Butch Mach- owski, Dennis O'Keefe, Joe DiMartino, Don Day, Pcxq TO SECOND PLACE FINISH IN NORTH CENTRAL LEAGUE Paul Falzone, Ioe Mangione, Rich Sesko. leo Mach owski, Bob Sesko, and Pete Dautrich. Other stand- outs include: Tom McDermott, Jarv McCannon, Dave Ahlman, Jim DiVita, Bang williams, Jon Ryan, Clark Sisson, Moe Dulude, and Jules Bunel. For the future these just mentioned underclassmen and a fine crop of freshmen should combine to pro- duce many fine elevens. Praise is also in order for Mr. Daniels. Mr. Beecher, and Leon Veretto, who aided coaches Anderson and Fortuna in leading the 'Jackets to success. Congratulations to the team for its per- severance and spirit: to the coaches for their patience and hard work: and to those industrious student manag BTS. e89 I Basketball Season, 1958 -59 Coach Bill "Doc" Flaherty's Gilbert Yellow Jackets gamely struggled through a disappointing 1958-59 basketball season, cluminating their efforts with a heartbreaking 41 -54 defeat at the hands of the Branford Hornets in the CIAC Class B Tourna- ment. Bad breaks began to take their toll on the Blue and Gold quintet, which recorded eight hard -earned victories and suffered through 14 bitter defeats, ever before the first game. Walter "Butch" Machowski, tri -captain and all -star guard on the 1957 -58 Housa- tonic Valley B League post-season "dream team", sustained a serious knee injury in a football game against Berlin. Machowski's loss contributed highly to the 'Jackets poor start which saw them drop eight of the first eleven decisions. The starting five of Dennis O'Keefe, this year's leading scorer and rebounder and a tri -captain, Bob "Cousy" Ransford, flashy ball -handler and tri -cap- taing Gary "Hops" Williams, Tom "Mac" McDermottg and Eliot "Bangs" Williams carried on in fine style holding the team together for the first half of the teams schedule despite many disheartening reversals. The Jackets bolstered their thin reserve coups by the addition of sensational freshman Jim DiVita and guard Ron Perkins and quickly ran up three straight wins, not only putting themselves in line for tourna- ment consideration but also opening the possibility of a Housatonic Valley B League Championship. However, the squad had to struggle to qualify for the CIAC Playdowns and had to settle for a share of first place with Housatonic Valley Regional of Falls Village and Henry Abbott Tech of Danbury. This late season slump might be attributed to an emotional let -down of the players, part, following a tedious schedule. Once the Flahertymen reached the playdowns ranking last in a field of 20, they sensed a chance to redeem lost glory and upset sixteenth -rated Wind- sor 67 -64. Page 91 Following this excellent team effort, the Jackets tore after a medicore eighth -seeded Bradford Hornet "5" and were just eight minutes away from clinching a quarter -final berth when several questionable calls, which plagued the Blue and Gold season-long, went against them. The downstaters then made the most of their glorious opportunities and triumphed 54-51. Considering all the disadvantages which they had to encounter fi. e. --very poor attendance both at home and away, lack of bench strength, injuries and scholastic problems of key players, and spotty, to say the least, officiatingj, Gilbert I-loopsters distin- guished themselves on the court. O'Keefe averaged over 12 points a game, and 18 rebounds per game: Ransford, although not playing up to par until late in the season pitched in over 200 tallles for the second straight year and won several key games with clutch shots: "Hoppy" Williams hit his peak with 25 against Watertown and showed proved a tremendous handyman, hustled all the way, and developed into a better scorers McDermott more than tripled his point production of last year: Perkins came through handily as a late season surpriseg and Dlvita gave O'Keefe occasional help on the boards, while gain- ing valuable experience. McDermott, Bang Williams, Perkins, and Di Vita are scheduled to return in 59-60 along with Dave Ahlman, Dave Watson, Steve Sedlack, Richie Simmons, and Bill Dom, among others. Those who donned the Gold and Blue for the last time for the Branford game were O'Keefe, Ransford, G. Williams, and George McCannon. Machowskl also bid farewell to action for good but did not dress due to his bad knee which kept him out of action for all but one of the contests. I. V. Coach Dick Healy deserves congratulations for piloting the "Little Jackets' to their first winning Q12 wins 10 defeatsj season in several years. Through his efforts and those of the boys. Gilbert should have many fine tournament teams in the days to come.
