The Corinthian THE DRAMATIC CLUB Third Row: Miller, Chadwick, McCabe, Walendziewicz Fourth Row: Schoffstall, B Lewis, McGhee, Anton, Smeader Fifth Row: Corridoni, Erario Sixth Row: Diorio, C. Brown Our class is one of the few that can claim participation in Dramatic Club plays in their soph¬ omore year. In " The Statue " and " Nicholas Nickleby, " Bill Darling and Howard Anton made their debuts on the Girard College stage with major parts. Four plays were presented in our junior year. The Christmas play, " The Pharmacist ' s Mate, " took Bob Roach in a major role as the pharmacist ' s mate himself, with Tony Bralczyk and Frank Pearson portraying two of the ship ' s officers. Although all the major parts of " The Christmas Carol " were handled by the current seniors, Bill Darling, Howard Anton, and Bob Melvin did well in supporting roles. " O ' Halloran ' s Luck " and " Captain of the Gate " were billed as our spring plays. Bob Roach again excelled here as a very Irish Tim O ' Halloran. Richard Chadwick, William Smeader, Gus Pela- gatti and Abe Sheitelman performed well as supporting actors. Howard Anton, Bill Darling, and Tony Bralczyk headed the cast of " Captain of the Gate, " and were convincing as officers of the Roy¬ alist Army fighting against Cromwell. Bob Melvin, Bob Roach, and Tony Bralczyk as Seniors were elected as president, vice-president, and secretary-treasurer of the club respectively. Immediately after these elections, work was started on the Christmas play, " The Ghost of Benjamin Sweet, " which had Bob Roach, Bob Melvin, Frank Pearson, Carl Havira, Abe Sheitelman and Tony Bralczyk in important roles. It is appropriate that we should mention the " unsung heroes " of the Club, the make-up staff, and the stage hands. Jerome Batalsky did an excellent job as chairman of the make-up staff. His as¬ sistants, Don McGhee and Mark Miller, are also to be commended for their expert services and ad¬ vice. The stage hands, headed by Bob Newlin, merit applause for preparing the scenery as efficiently as they did. Mr. Henry V. Andrews, Dramatic Club coach, deserves much of the credit for the success of the plays. Without his excellent guidance and training, the plays could not have had such success. The Club was also happy to have been associated with Miss Fern McCracken, who took many of the female character roles.

Class of June, 1956 9 First Row: Erario, Briggs, Diorio, Newton Second Row: Lydic, Krachman, Anton, Smyth Third Row: Sheitelman, Chadwick, Pearson, Bralczyk, Wybranski After much labor and debating over policies and procedures in meetings under the direction of Dr. Haskell, we have this to offer as our finished product. His strictness in making us work on sched¬ ule has made this " Corinthian " what it is. Without his rigorous and helpful, appreciated sug¬ gestions, we would have failed. Copy, as it was handed to Dr. Haskell, was sent to the Print Shop. Here, under the direction of Mr. Daffin, the linotype slugs were cast and the presses rolled to complete many months of tiring work. As you see here, Mr. Daffin, directing very capable Print Shop students has produced the ex¬ cellent job which he has always done on our publications. N First Row: Havira, Miller, Chadwick, Flanagan, Newton, Carola Second Row: D. Lewis, Breault, McGhee, Jones Third Row: Briggs, Costello, Corridoni Fourth Row: Darling, Shiels With a late start " The Girardian " organized and elected Richrd Chadwick editor-in-chief. In a succeeding meeting assistant editors Carl Havira and Joe Flanagan were voted into office. Mark Miller and Larry Carola as art editor and printing advisor respectively completed the staff. The Print Shop boys helped us with unselfish and unending efforts. Their skills, directed by Mr. Daffin, combined speed with accuracy till the last run came off the press. Mr. MacGregor, the capable sponsor, tied the loose ends together when any situation arose. He spent many long hours in correcting and editing copy, and in helping the editors. All worked hard side by side contributing their work to the Magazine; the result was two completed issues filled cover to cover with wri tings of literary quality and great local interest.
