Many times in this last step of our high-school life, we have just thought of you as the added noise in the hall, the extra shove in the locker room, or the occupants of certain back seats in the auditorium. Yet we have noticed in you a definite quality that has not always seemed to be characteristic of former sophomores — you are independent. On the whole you seem more serious-minded, more conscious of the opportunities of the academic part of our school life. You showed fine initiative and leadership in your freshman year. Your newspaper was followed with great interest by many upper classmen; your student council was a success. Other things that you did also showed us that you saw a value in our extra-curricular activities and that you would find opportunities for developing the quality of doing and succeeding. Thus far you have taken part in our activities, but not in quite the same spirit that you showed last year. You seem too conscious of our being here and are afraid to say or do what you would like. You have much to teach us about cooperation and initiative. 1 hope you will not lose your spirit of independence among yourselves. Get out of high school what will help you after graduation and what will count as time well spent. High school is by far the best place to find our interests for later life. Don’t disregard this, but attempt to make your school days the most enjoyable. Enjoyment will come from satisfaction, and satisfaction from doing. Charlotte Crump, ’378 THE CHRONICLE Sophomore Impressions We sophomores have been asked to tell what we think of the morning school, and we imagine that our impressions closely resemble those of all other sophomore classes. The building is the same; the rooms haven’t changed, but still there is a slight difference somewhere. Our thrill upon entering the first day was not quite the same as we had when we came as freshmen. Yet we were glad to be back and to learn the names of the teachers and the outstanding seniors and juniors. Our first days in the “gym” were a thrill, and the first auditorium program seemed just perfect. The whole-hearted playing of the orchestra as the students marched in from every entrance seemed very stirring to us, and the first entertainment was most enjoyable. Some of us are still a little vague about certain Student Council rules, but we are always ready to be taught by the experienced seniors. We have very kind feelings toward our upper-class friends, who have made us feel welcome in their clubs and sports and on their Chronicle Staff. Marion O’Connell, ’39 A New Club Lyman Hall has a new organization, a Home Economics Club, organized by Miss Gillette and Miss Wilcox. The purpose of this club is to enable students to become better acquainted with the various interesting subjects pertaining to home economics. Later we hope to join the State Home Economics Club and call ourselves a sister organization. We shall visit other organizations throughout the state and participate in programs given in the schools that we visit. Our meetings are held twice a month in the sewing room, and we shall be very glad to welcome new members. Esther Tuttle, ’37 Opportunity at Lyman Hall Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, All! May I have a word with you—just a moment or two of your time in which to consider the value of extra-curricular activities? I have special reference to the clubs and other organizations offering their cordial welcome and membership to you as students of Lyman Hall. How many can we name — the Debating, Home Economics and Stamp Clubs, the Daubers, Junior College Club, Glee Clubs, Choir, Band, Orchestra? To how many can you claim a membership? I hope you won’t say none, for after all, these clubs are formed solely for your benefit and enjoyment. Lately you have been hearing the pleadings of various clubs for new members. Surely! Now, why not investigate? That’s a good idea. Maybe you have been traveling about the corridors of Lyman Hall totally indifferent toward these valuable organizations. I wish that you would take notice now and take advantage of these chances to become a member of a club or two this year. Such extra-curricular activities seem really just as much a part of our high-school education as mathematics, shorthand, Latin, and all the rest.THE CHRONICLE 9 Of course, there are certain restrictions made by some of the clubs such as the Daubers, to which you may belong only if you take art. The Junior College Club is only for girls who are taking the Normal or College Course. Naturally you must have somewhat of a voice to be in the glee clubs, and you must play an instrument to join the ranks of the band or orchestra. If you can sing or play your fiddle or flute, please don’t make the grave mistake of losing one of the grandest opportunities offered in high school; for music in any form is one of the most instructive as well as pleasurable trainings one can find. And now a word about the A. A. and Chronicle. To be sure they require a dollar or two a year, but they are both good investments, and besides you will receive the satisfaction of knowing that you have done your part in helping your school along its way. And, too, don’t forget the basketball season! Our team needs your support to keep it going to the best of its ability. Well, I’ve said my bit. Have I said enough? I certainly hope I have, so that you’ll now join the popular movement toward more members for our clubs. Roberta Bingham, ’38 Yankee Ingenuity The words “Yankee Ingenuity” are well known to us, but perhaps some of us have a rather vague conception of their true meaning. We are inclined to associate this quality with something that died with Eli Whitney, Elias Howe, Samuel Morse, and other New England inventors. Yankee ingenuity is not mentioned so much in our modern times, but it still exists, however. Clever people are continually inventing or improving upon labor or money saving devices. The following is a good example of this. An excellent opportunity is offered to prospective students by the Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Every year a scholarship of five hundred dollars is awarded to a student born and reared in New England who best shows his ingenuity. This year the scholarship was given to Franklin D. Hayes, who lived on a farm in Massachusetts, where his father had a greenhouse. He was sick of running out every few hours to keep track of the temperature, and he was especially weary of leaving his warm bed two or three times during the night. Determined to make his wits save his heels, he contrived a device which flashes a light and rings a bell in his room whenever the temperature changes three degrees. When the temperature reaches a fixed danger point, the device also starts a blower under the boiler in the heating room of the greenhouse. This creates a draft and the heat rises and all is well. The principal materials used were two strips of zinc, a strip of sheet iron, a bicycle spoke, two clock wheels, some copper rivets from a discarded harness, some colored bulbs from Christmas tree decorations, an electric doorbell, a toy electric train transformer, and part of an old vacuum cleaner. Worth perhaps — well — they were worth a five-hundred-dollar scholarship and a lot of glory to Franklin D. Hayes. Charles Upham, ’39 910 THE CHRONICLE Opportunities for Women in Aviation Today aviation offers wide opportunities for women. Many of us used to be surprised to hear of women actually flying planes, but now it seems little stranger than seeing them drive cars. There are two distinct types of courses in aviation, which are both open to women, the ground course and the flying course. In the ground course, which offers numerous possibilities, one may study mechanics, aerial navigation, radio, air current, and air pressure. A woman after the proper study courses may work her way up to high executive positions. The second course, the flying course, teaches the student the actual piloting of a plane. The work of both the test and private pilot is often dangerous but always adventurous. If a woman desires to fly and yet does not wish to take these courses just mentioned, she may become an air stewardess, provided she is a trained nurse, with her weight not exceeding one hundred and fifteen pounds, and with'a height not over five feet, four inches. As one may see, the opportunities for women in aviation are just as wide and varied as those for men. To one who is interested, it is a promising career. Ella Jakob, ’37 Attention, Everyone We have all heard about the twenty-two thousand, eight hundred lives taken in the United States last year by automobiles. We have all heard again and again of Safety Driving Campaigns. Probably we all read that famous article And Sudden Death. Still thousands continue to be killed by automobiles. Many plans for the solution of this problem have been suggested. Foremost of these are The National Safety Council, better traffic engineering, and the education of the public. All plans are useless without the cooperation of the public, and this leads to education. In our school we are having a number of safety-driving programs, which will cover many phases of the safe operation of automobiles. Thus we are being educated in the subject; next comes the application of this knowledge. Only through the assuming of individual responsibility may we hope to achieve our goal, for it was in this way that other great nation-wide dangers were overcome such as yellow fever, typhoid fever, railroad casualties, and the crime wave of a few years ago. We all either drive or ride in automobiles. Let us all try our best to see that the automobile death-rate is reduced. John May, ’39THE CHRONICLE 11 Follow Your Hobby Hobbies are many and varied. A large number, however, deal with collecting perhaps stamps, coins, arrowheads, old furniture, or books. From these hobbies one may gain valuable information as well as a great deal of enjoyment. Take each hobby separately. On stamps there are pictured maps, statesmen, lawyers, generals, and politicans. Maps help one in geography and history. If you are interested in art, you may, also, wish to collect stamps, for on stamps you will find reproductions of well-known pieces of art. Coins tell the history of many countries. In the early days of our country coins were marked in pounds, shillings, and pennies; now dollars and cents are used. Through this, one sees how the United States was a British possession and now a separate country. Coins are also issued in honor of the anniversaries of cities and states. Arrowheads show us where the various Indian tribes lived. Thus we are able to follow the migration of a tribe from the Atlantic Coast to the far West. There are many different types of arrowheads, and one is always pleased when he finds a new one. Old furniture takes us back to the early times in this country or even back to the early European countries. By collecting furniture one sees how styles have gradually changed from what are now antiques to the most modernistic pieces. Books delight many people. First editions are always sought by book collectors. Through the collecting of books one becomes interested in the authors and learns a great deal about their best works. Hobbies, as well as being instructive as shown throughout this article, are sometimes remunerative. A great many stamps and coins bring high prices. Some day you may need some money; if you have a hobby, you will probably be able to get it. Then, too, there is the enjoyment of your hobby. When you grow old, a hobby will help pass many otherwise dreary hours, and you will be glad you started one when you were young. Also when you are sick, you are more than willing to turn to your hobby. Follow your hobby, and you will always be happy, whether in prosperity, poverty, loneliness, or sickness. Bobert Thompson, ’3912 THE CHRONICLE i Who Me? Who me? I'm not afraid, but still Some things do my heart with terror fill; Phantom footsteps who what's behind me? One quick glance and no one there. See!! Over-hanging trees, inky skies, few stars, An urge to whistle, well, only a few bars, Blustery weather, these rustling leaves Or was that leaves? One look my fear relieves. Who me? I’m not really scared and yet I'm not anxious by goblins or ghosts to be met; A shrill scrccch the wind, of course; But, then, has the wind such awful force? Hair on end — thoughts of mystery thrillers! Those gruesome, adventurous, horrow-fillers! A dark stretch ahead, and no street light, Be-gloved hands, hence no nails to bile. Who me? I'm not easily frightened, except Surely, something has beside me crept!! Chattering teeth and quaking knees are not for me; Those are left for “fraidy-cats”, you see. There’s nothing so stirring as a twelve o'clock walk; But if you don’t mind, I’ll walk and stalk At twelve o’clock; yes, at noon in the sun; Don’t you think (Oh, I’m sure!!) it’s much more fun? Betty Davitt, ’37THE CHRONICLE 13 Tramp Meets Tramp On a windy November night a group of hungry knights and a few ladies of the road gathered around a bright fire near the railroad track and ate greedily of canned beans. As Mike, one of the younger men in the band leaned forward to get some dessert (more beans), he noticed a girl shivering on the edge of the 4 jungle” in a ragged hat and coat, staring longingly at the fire and the food. “Hey you,” he called, “come in and join us. Matthews has just laid a cheery fire in the open fireplace, and the fourth course will be served presently. 1 was just having some beans a la can. Want some?” “Well, my stomach has been craving company for a couple of days,” she admitted laughingly, as she came eagerly toward the fire. The others glanced up, grunted some greeting, and began to ply their forks more vigorously to make up for lost time. Mike watched the girl as she ate, thinking of how pretty she looked in the flickering light. When she had finished, they moved a short distance from the rest and sat down to talk. “I’m known among the Four Hundred as Mike Davis,” he said, grinning at her. “What’s your handle?” She laughed and answered with an aloof air, “I’m listed in the Blue Book as Barbara Crane, sir.” “Well, the Vanderbilts would never recognize you in that rig,” he said, as he looked critically at her battered attire. “And you’re no model for Esquire yourself,” she retorted, returning the inspection. They chattered gaily for a while, and then suddenly Mike grew serious, saying, “This life doesn’t suit you. Why are you here?” “Why is anybody?” she answered evasively. “1 lost my job and had to move on; so — here I am.” “But you don’t belong —” “But I’m here and that’s that,” she interrupted curtly. “Shall we change the subject?” They talked for an hour or two, exchanging experiences, and then parted to join their respective groups for the night. For several days Mike and Barbara travelled along with a few others, hopping freights when they could, walking the rest of the time. As the train drew into Chicago, Mike said reluctantly, “Here’s where I get off, Bob. Got some business to attend to.” “Why, how nice!” exclaimed Barbara. “I intend to stop here, too. I’ve always wanted to see Chicago.”14 THE CHRONICLE Mike helped her down and they started ofT. He soon left her to attend to his business, and both seemed averse to parting, as though it were the last time they would ever meet. In the office of the Chicago Times, Editor Green was loudly praising Michael Dennis for his story on the life of tramps. “These pictures are “tops’ too, Mike,” he said. “Say, these’ll beat anything the Star could ever get. They’ll be sorry they ever started this competition for the best story on tramps. “Hey, wait a minute,” he gasped, as he stared at the picture before him. “Where’d you meet this girl?” “She was with the gang all the week. I got most of my information from her. Gee, she was swell,” Mike sighed. “I’ll say she was swell,” the editor bellowed. “A swell masquerader! Do you realize that’s Barbara Blair of the Star? And you got all your information from her! You imbecile:” A similar scene was taking place in the office of the Star, where Barbara was islaring open-mouthed at her rival’s countenance grinning at her from the photograph. “You two have ruined the whole thing,” the editor fumed. “You’re my best reporter, Bob, but get out of here before I lose my temper and fire you!” Later Barbara was gloomily ordering supper in a restaurant, when a voice behind her said, “Hello, Bob Crane. Know any jungle roundabouts where I could get some grub?” “Well, if it isn’t Mike Davis, the tramp. Sit down and join me. What will you have?” she asked, her eyes twinkling. “Let’s have beans a la can,” was the answer, and they began to laugh uproariously. Josephine Gallagher, ’37 Fetie Nose so pink and eyes so bright, Romping hard from morn ’til night, Just a baby setter pup, Petie. Coat so silky, tail so long, Ne’er a care, life’s a song, Just a baby setter pup, Petie. Lars so floppy, tongue so wet, He’s grown a lot, growing yet, Just a baby setter pup, Petie. Marcia Williams, ’38THE CHRONICLE 15 Tomorrow's Dawn The music waxed louder and faster. The girl spun around the slippery floor in the circle of her partner’s arms. The boat lurched suddenly and one of the women screamed. The dancing couples took a few quick steps to keep their balance. Caro went on gazing over her partner’s shoulder at the boy sitting at the edge of the dance floor. At times the dance would carry them farther down the floor, or another couple would block her vision, but always her eyes turned toward him again. “Tommy,” she said, “do you know young Lochinvar over there?” Her escort pivoted and glanced across the room. “Oh, that one. I haven’t ever been able to find out who he is. He’s quiet as last year’s stock market and doesn’t seem to know anyone on board.” “Well, he isn’t having much fun. I hinted to Jim's father that he looked lonely. 1 thought that he might introduce me, but he didn’t bother!” “What a girl!” said Tom. “Just because Jim’s father introduced us doesn’t mean that he knows every Tom, Dick, and Harry on board, but if you're really interested in this fellow, 1 “Tommy, you old mind reader. I knew that you would. Do you think that you can arrange it?” “Leave it to the old maestro,” he said, as Jim cut in. The next morning Caro was on the top deck, playing deck tennis with Jim and another couple. She threw the ring, Jim caught it, tossed it back over her head, and out of bounds. She turned to go after the ring and saw7 that her lonesome friend was standing there holding it. “You would do much better if you sent a twister like this—” the boy said, as he threw the ring back, and Jim off his guard did not catch it. Suddenly the boy lost his casual manner and looked around in embarrassment. Tommy came running up and saved the situation. “Caro, I want you to meet Jack Hobart — Carolyn Livingstone. Can’t stop. On my eight laps around deck. See you later. His words drifted back on the wind as he sped down the deck. Caro laughed. “Well, Mr. Hobart, she said, “now that we are properly introduced, suppose you proceed with your lesson on the twister, as you called it.” “No, that can wait. Let’s walk.” He was, Caro could see, impulsive and determined. As they rounded the stern, she said, “Tell me about yourself. There isn’t much to tell. Went to college and flunked out because of Alfred. He’s my best friend, but Dad doesn’t approve and is sending me across to give me a chance to improve myself. Will you have dinner with me tonight?”16 THE CHRONICLE “Why, I — I Caro was not expecting this. Tlien she answered quickly, “I usually eat with Mother and Dad when Mother is about, but this is the last night, and I know that they won’t mind.” While they were dancing after dinner, Jack announced, “At midnight we are going to pass a light which we shall be able to see on the horizon. I have arranged with the chef for a little snack after we have seen it. I hope that you have a heavy coat. It will be cold.” Caro was excited. She had always wished that someone would talk to her like that - order her around. They sat on the deck that night until they had passed the light. Then Caro looked at her watch. “Heavens!” she said in her callous way, “I have to go in or Mother will scalp me!” “Good night, Caro, and good bye.” Panic struck her. They were to dock in the morning. ‘Mack —” she started, and stopped. “Yes, Caro, some day we’ll meet again,” he said, and was gone. That night the fire alarm sounded. Bedlam reigned. In the red glare ugly seas snatched at the lowered life boats. The headlines in the New York papers on the following morning announced: “Huge ocean liner sinks twelve hours from Southampton. Five passengers and crew drowned. Among the missing were Miss Carolyn Livingstone of this city and Mr. Jack Hobart.” Betty Shelley, '37 Satisfaction She sat in the big swivel chair behind the huge, shiny mahogany desk. How large and roomy it was, with so many drawers. It was so different from those in the Old Building. Battered and worn, scratched and marked, and worn smooth with long usage, those desks had known many years of hard work. She was so glad she didn’t work in the Old Building any more. She glanced around her. She marveled. Everywhere were evidences of great wealth. Secretly she wondered if these wonderful things would last as long as those things in the Old Building. What did it matter, anyhow? The owner would probably redecorate all the offices here in ten years. She was glad she didn’t work in the Old Building any more. She looked at the beautiful, glossy, hardwood floors. Mentally she compared them with the floors of the Old Building. Those had served the foot steps of many years, and she was in a way familiar with them. But these new floors, well, they sort of did something to you — like making you want to dance — even though you couldn’t. And she was glad she didn’t work in the Old Building any more.THE CHRONICLE 17 She had never seen such beautiful metal fittings. All chromium, and they shone like the Pearly Gates — so different from the brass of the Old Building, which even though polished daily, looked its thirty-six years,— and then some. She was glad she didn’t work in the Old Building any more. She turned and looked at the spacious files. She bet that they worked easily without catching quite unlike the rusty files of the Old Building. But the old files seemed to fit in with their surroundings and the surroundings were as bad as the files, and, oh well, she was glad she didn’t work in the Old Building any more. She snuggled close to one side of the big comfy swivel chair in which she was seated. The soft, springy seat was warm and probably wasn’t any inducement to work very hard. But the chairs in the Old Building — There wasn’t a word hard enough to describe them. And as she leaned her head back against the smooth felt cushions, she was glad she didn’t work in the Old Building any more. Scarlet geraniums, four just alike, stood tall and straight on the stands made for them. They looked well-cared for — so much so that they almost seemed smug. In the Old Building there used to be a fern, but it died one winter, and no one had ever brought another plant. And because of the geraniums’ cheerfulness, she was glad she worked in The New Building. It certainly had been hard to get the transfer, but she had worked for it and she got it. The other girls laughed when they knew she was working for a transfer, but in the end the joke was on them. She had received it. She glanced at the beautiful black and silver wall clock. Nine o’clock. She gasped aloud. She had come right from dinner and had been here two hours. This was no way to start. And shifting her two hundred and eighteen pounds from the chair to the floor, she started to wash the wonderful floor, a smile on her face. A. Nony.

Ruth Shookie, ’3918 THE CHRONICLE Fly-fishing for Trout The most common method of catching trout is to use bait, such as worms, grasshoppers, beetles, and shiners, the worms being most often used. In recent years, however, a new phase of scientific angling has become popular, taking trout on the artificial fly. The fly is by no means a new thing. Isaac Walton used it back in 1600, and up to 1900 it was occasionally used by the really scientific fishermen, the average angler, however, resorting to worms. After 1900 it was proved that it took twice as much skill to take trout on the fly as on the worm, and also since the speckled trout were diminishing because of heavy fishing, pollution, and factories, it showed better sportsmanship to catch them on flies. About 1920 the phrase “Give the fish a chance” became popular. This awoke the fishermen’s sporting blood, and today we find fly-fishing gradually becoming predominant. Of the many trout fishermen in the United States, three-quarters of them use flies. However, don’t get the impression that worms are impractical for bait! As a matter of fact, they have to be used in early spring fishing when the streams are high, cold, discolored, and when hundreds of natural worms are being carried downstream; but in June when the insects are humming, the water’s normal, and the flies are hatching (yes, mosquitoes too!), the trout feed heavily and naturally on these insects, and therefore it is the correct time to use artificials. The artificial fly is divided into two classes the wet fly and the dry fly. The wet fly is supposed to imitate a half-drowned fly that is faintly struggling in the current or a shiner and an underwater fly. It is divided into the bucktail, streamer, nymph, and ordinary wet hackle. The dry fly is intended to imitate a floating insect such as the may-fly, which, as its name suggests, hatches in May and falls off the tree branches into the stream, which causes the trout to come to the surface and feed on them. As the natural fly floats, so the artificial has to float, which is accomplished by special equipment. The dry fly is divided into the fanwing, spentwing, bivisible, and ordinary dry hackle. To take trout on dry flies is an art in itself, requiring the highest degree of skill and patience. On the casting of the fly, which is a book in itself, I shall say nothing to my bored readers, but until May is here with its rich, new foliage, humming insects, and warm days, may the trout rest in peace and wait for the bombardment of thousands of flies, both real and artificial.

Gillette of Colchester, Connecticut, our new sewing teacher, succeeding Miss Doane, taught in Plainville, Connecticut, and is a graduate of Connecticut State College with a B.S. degree. Miss Katherine Wasilewski, who was graduated with the Lyman Hall class of 1936, is now taking Mrs. Marshall Fabian’s place as Mr. Earley’s secretary. Welcome, Newcomers Do not mistake the new faces that you see in the halls every morning for freshmen, who by some miracle have escaped the Student Council doorkeepers. They are new students at Lyman Hall. We have three new arrivals in the Senior Class Theodore Campos, who formerly attended George Washington High School in New York City; Francis Janick, who came to us from Naugatuck High School; and John Ackley, who came from the Pittsfield High School in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

Dorothy Macdowall and Leonard Wassmer are attending school in New London. Senior Picnic September 28 found the Class of 1937 anxiously glancing out of the window at leaden skies. The picnic was originally scheduled to be held at Moss Rock on that afternoon. Everyone had arrived and had begun to play football or baseball or to pitch horse-shoes when someone shouted, “We’re leaving!” No trespassing signs had been discovered and a fire permit was not forthcoming. There was a mad scramble for cars, and word was passed to go to Wharton Brook Park. Here everyone braved the rain, continued the games, and built fires. Refreshments consisting of hot-dogs, toasted marshmallows, and soda were enjoyed by all. The picnic committee included Gertrude Voigt, Betty Shelley, Doris McLean, Stanley Bellows, William Roberge, Marilyn Jeralds, Henry Jasiewicki, Mary Ann Palmer, Joseph Kristan, and Rose Mastroddi. Roberta Johnson, ’37 Senior Elections On September 18 the Class of 1937 held a meeting in Room 5 to nominate class officers for the coming year.

Morris Gelblum, ’39 The Rhvlhni Ramblers On September 27 three Lyman Hall students, Charles Burghardt, Joseph Jasinski, and Tony Antonucci, appeared as the Rhythm Ramblers in an Amateur Program on Station W. T. I. C. They played two “hillbilly” numbers.22 THE CHRONICLE Junior Ring Committee The juniors have already selected their class rings. Those in charge were Leo Ciszek, Betty Dunn, Laurena Kimberly, Margaret O’Reilly, Louise Sala, and Elizabeth Toth. Cheer Leaders Except for Bernie McLaughlin, Lyman Hall’s cheering squad is new this year. Elizabeth Toth, Helen Harkawick, and Henry Jasiewicki are the others in the group. They are all doing good work and want everyone’s cooperation. Sport Dance In the “gym” on October 16, a benefit dance was held for Ernest LaCroix, who was injured in an alumni football game. The “gym” was decorated in the school colors, black and orange, and music was furnished by the Rhythm Ramblers’ Orchestra. The patronesses were Mrs. Howard Nettleton, Mrs. Langdon D. Fernald, Miss Ruth Whittaker, and Miss Ellen Disken. Roberta Johnson, ’37 The Sophomore-Freshman Hallowe4en Party The Hallowe’en Party given to the freshmen by the sophomores on Thursday, October 29, was pronounced a great success by all attending. It was well planned, and cooperation was shown by everyone. The program opened with the Sophomore Grand March. Andrew Sari, the Master of Ceremonies, led the march with James Ferriere, Edward Ferriere, and Marion O’Connell, the class officers. Ethel Haczku's costume was judged the prettiest, and Arthur Kozak’s, the funniest. Next came the Freshman Grand March, and Thelma Jeffords’ costume was judged the prettiest, and Charles Stearns’, the most comical. Miss Quint and Miss Hutchinson were the best couple. Mrs. Earley, Miss Mitchell, and Airs. Botsford, the judges, had a difficult task selecting the winners, so many and varied were the costumes. Fabian’s Orchestra furnished the music for the dancing. At this time the different rooms were opened the game room, the fortune-telling room, the cemetery, and the bogey den. These were enjoyed by many. Refreshments were then served, and dancing continued until the party ended at eleven o’clock. Much credit is due the various committees for their work in the management of the party. All in all, the party may be considered one of the most successful Hallowe’en parties given in our school. Charles Upham, ’39 Home Room Programs In the home rooms this year we are having on certain days talks on various topics connected with automobiles and safe driving.THE CHRONICLE 23 Most of the home rooms have elected chairmen to take charge of these meetings, and we are all trying to make these programs successful. Thus far we have discussed the following: The Automobile as an Asset, Modern Highways, Understanding the Mechanism, and Responsibility, Maintenance and Care of Automobiles. Edward O’Connell, ’37 Library Notes We are very fortunate this year to have such a veriety of new books in our school library. Our library is expanding every year, and at the present time it is one of the largest high-school libraries in the state. During November we had our annual Book Week, and many new and interesting books were on display. One feature of this year's Book Week was the display of letters and autographed books sent to Miss Clark by well-known writers. Letters were received from Wilson MacDonald, Gladys Carroll, William Lyon Phelps, Jeanette Eaton, Bachel Field, and Bobert P. Tristam Coffin. Autographed books were received from Christopher Morley, Dorothy Lathrop, Eric P. Kelly, and Odell Shepard. Prizes for the Book Week Poster Contest went to Thomas Windsor, who received first prize, and Betty Shelley, second. Anna Tierney and Alex Sabo received honorable mention. Miss Clark, Miss Hutchinson, and Miss Farr deserve much praise for making Book Week such a success. Below we have the library report for the months of September and October: September October Non-Fiction............... 1,169 1,801 Fiction..................... 568 924 Total circulation, 1936 1,737 (16 days) 2,728 (20 days) Total circulation, 1935 1,239 (19 days) 1,940 (22 days) Part II Classes Held in Library September October Classes for reading.......................10 2 Classes in Library Science .... — 36 Eldward O’Connell, ’37 The Junior Play On November 13 and 14 the Junior Class presented A Million Dollar Joke, an amusing comedy in three acts. An appreciative audience enjoyed the excellent acting of the entire cast — Shirley Goodwin, Polly Biggins, Boger Palmer, William Toth, Daniel Cotteral, Donald Parker, Burdette Harrison, Gladys Carlson, Barbara Cooper, Marjorie Tomlinson.24 THE CHRONICLE Much credit for the success of the play goes also to the committees under the following chairmen — Betty Young, general chairman; Theodore Lendler, tickets; Richard Talbot, ushers and programs; Katherine Bridgett, candy; Ethel Kosa, costumes; Charles Burghart, stage; Marcia Williams, properties; and Viola Lendler, publicity. The orchestra added greatly to the enjoyment of the evening, playing three selections Overture Black Diamond, Trepak, and Festival March. Senior Dance On Saturday evening, November 21, the annual Senior Dance was held in the “gym”, which was attractively decorated with red roses. Bonyai’s Orchestra furnished a pleasing dance program, and refreshments were served during intermission. The plans for the dance were in charge of the following chairmen of committees: invitations, Roberta Johnson; refreshments, Marilyn Jeralds; decorations, Charlotte Upham; and orchestra, Edward O’Connell. Edward O’Connell, ’37 Student Council Dance ’Twas the night before Thanksgiving, and in the gymnasium the first of a proposed series of dances was given by the Student Council for members of the student body. Novelty dances were a feature, with music by Sebastian’s five-piece orchestra. The low price, fifteen cents for stags and twenty-five cents for couples, attracted many pupils. So come to the next dance and enjoy these informal, social affairs with your friends. Charlotte Crump, ’37 Poster Contest In the poster contest sponsored by the Junior Play Publicity Committee, Polly Biggins received first prize, Jane Bassett second, and Frieda Buza third. Honorable mention was received by Frances and Kathryn McLaughlin and Kenneth Wright. M orris Gelblum, ’39 The Athletic Association The Athletic Association has started its membership drive for the present year. During the past two years memberships have decreased, but this year we hope for better success in gaining new members. Let us all join this money-saving association. We can save twenty cents on every basketball game, and as there will be eleven home games in basketball this year, we can save two dollars and twenty cents if we belong to the association. Join now and keep our teams on the proper athletic standard. Edward O’Connell, ’37THE CHRONICLE 25 Student Council Our Student Council, an organization representing the students in the affairs of the school, has been very successful in its undertakings. We have forty-eight on the roll, a larger membership than any former Lyman Hall council. Yet, we can not function properly unless we have the entire student body behind us. The officers for the year are president, Stanley Bellows; vice-president, Edward O’Connell; secretary-treasurer, Charlotte Crump. There are two members from each home room, giving each class an equal representation. The faculty advisers are Miss Dunlap and Mr. Torrey. Charlotte Crump, 37 The Daubers On a Wednesday afternoon one may see the Art Room filled with students wearing brightly colored smocks looking extremely artistic. Some are cutting block prints, others viewing their work at a distance, and a few waiting for inspiration to come. This is the meeting of the Daubers who are chosen because of their artistic ability. Every other Wednesday is a business meeting after which the members work on their particular projects. The remaining Wednesdays are left for social activities. As you may remember, one such Wednesday was given over to a dunking party, held to celebrate the completion of the poster work advertising last year’s Junior Play, Dollars to Doughnuts. This year as last year the Daubers have already started plans for their annual Christmas sale. Christmas cards are being printed, designs for wrapping paper are being submitted, ash trays modeled, and many other interesting nicknacks designed. With the proceeds of this sale, the Daubers hope to make a visit to the haven of all artists. New York. All the Daubers owe the enjoyment of their meetings to Miss Farr, who is a competent, friendly director. The official Daubers are chief dauber, Gerry Bassett; secretary, Frances McLaughlin; and treasurer, Kathryn McLaughlin. Gerry Bassett, ’37 Home Economics Club At the first meeting of the Home Economics Club the following officers were elected: president, Emma McLean; vice-president, Esther Tuttle; secretary-treasurer, Eleanor Markow. Eleanor Markow, ’37 Debating Club Every other Tuesday the Debating Club holds its meeting in Boom 4 under the direction of Mr. Patten. Although outsiders believe that the club functions only at these meetings, there are many ambitious projects under way. Several inter-class debates have been arranged to give us practice for the coming state debate.26 THE CHRONICLE We are pleased at the large number of students who have gone out for debating this year and at the interest these new members are taking in our activities. Robert Slie, president, issues a welcome to any other debaters i n the school who have not yet joined our group. You will find debating a benefit as well as an enjoyable activity. Charlotte Crump, ’37 Music in Lyman Hall The instrumental groups this year include the band, the orchestra, the brass ensemble, the string ensemble, and the clarinet quartet. Private lessons are given free of charge on all instruments, including the violin, to anyone wishing to receive t hem. The band of thirty-three members played at the Derby football game and expects to play at the home basketball games. The orchestra of thirty-nine members plays at the assembly programs, the junior and senior plays, the Armistice Day and Christmas programs. The three small instrumental groups are new this year. The brass ensemble consists of six instruments, the string ensemble has five, and the clarinet quartet, of course, four. Considerable interest has been shown in the vocal groups this year, and it is expected that they will equal or surpass last year's standard. The Boys’ Clee Club numbers thirty-eight members and is the largest which lias ever been in the school. It is progressing well and will take part in the Christmas concert. The Cirls’ Glee Club has thirty-six members and will also take part in the Christmas concert. The A Cappella Choir, with forty-eight members, is outstanding among similar vocal groups of the state. It will sing for the Rotary Club and the Meriden Community Forum, and will sing at the Armistice Day and Christmas programs. The Girls’ Sextet and the Boys’ Quartet have also been organized. The Girls’ Sextet includes Betty Shelley, Fleanor Pogmore, Charlotte Crump, Florence Barnes, Elizabeth Bartholomew, and Shirley Goodwin.

The November meeting of the club was held at the home of Florence Barnes. An interesting talk by Miss Clark on books was enjoyed by all. Games were played, and refreshments were served. Barbara Cooper, ’38 Auditorium Programs Our auditorium programs this year seem better than ever before, and we thank Mr. Earley for securing such excellent ones for us.THE CHRONICLE 27 On October 5 for our first auditorium program we were presented with a Recital in Black and White by Mr. and Mrs. Reaser of New York. Mr. Reaser cleverly painted in black on a white canvas while Mrs. Reaser delight-fully played the piano. Both artists displayed great skill and adeptness in their respective arts. On October 16 Mr. Keyes, representing the Terminex Company, presented a moving picture on the subject of Termites. We were told of the process which the termites have used in making themselves one of the worst enemies of mankind. Their work, which is carried on in a smooth-well-governed, systematic manner, is being studied by scientists, who are trying to learn their secret. Later Mr. Keyes answered the many questions of the audience, which displayed the interest shown in his program. Mr. Keyes also spoke in several of the biology classes. On October 19 Dr. Carlton Palmer of New York spoke on The Joy of Pictures. Dr. Palmer, a collector of original paintings, has a valuable and varied collection gathered from the entire world. While telling about his love of pictures he showed a number of paintings from his collection. He showed us the difference between photographs and paintings and gave suggestions for looking at pictures so that we may get the real value and joy from them. From Dr. Palmer’s talk the students and faculty gained valuable information and pleasure. On November 6 Mr. Franklin Caveny, a sculptor and artist, demonstrated his ability in his respective arts. He entertained the audience with his humorous talk and poem quotations while he worked rapidly. He first drew a very artistic picture of a Venetian night, followed by a very beautiful picture of Niagara Falls, which he drew sideways. Modeling in clay, he executed an excellent likeness of Abraham Lincoln, and with this same face he shaped Uncle Sam’s countenance. As a novelty he pictured a scene from plain flannel rags. Mr. Caveny also made caricatures in crayon of Mr. Earley and Mr. Nettleton. On November 11 an Armistice Day Program was held in the auditorium. Edward O’Connell gave a brief talk on The Unknown Soldier, which was followed by a silent period and the sounding of taps. Roberta Bingham recited In Plunders Field, and the choir sang Lead Kindly Light. Mr. William Fitzgerald, formerly of the United States Navy, spoke concerning the observance of Armistice Day. Morris Celblum, ’39The Fooll al) TeamTilt: CHRONICLE 29 Football Sorely lacking experienced and heavy players, Lyman Hall’s football team barely plodded through four defeats before it wound up its schedule with a 6-0 win over Stratford High in a second period surprise play. Only two of the five games were played at Simpson Field and the winning contest was played in Stratford. The indomitable spirit of Captain Joseph Kristan was highly effective in upholding the team’s morale. Fortunately only one severe accident occurred, and that was in the alumni game when Ernest LaCroix received a broken leg. No score was kept of this game, which was terminated immediately after the injury. The records of the season’s games follow: Lyman Hall 0 Milford 7 Lyman Hall 0 Shelton . ... 20 Lyman Hall 0 Branford ... 25 Lyman Hall 6 Derby ... 28 Lyman Hall 6 Stratford . . . 0 Totals ... 12 80 Basketball All games are being played in the high-school gymnasium this year, a transfer from the State Armory because of the decreasing attendance during the past few seasons. By the time this is read, the Orangemen will have played five games, and their ability on the court will be possibly a known fact. Four teams are new on our schedule this year, East Haven, Woodrow Wilson, Watertown, and New Britain Trade. Nineteen games are listed on the schedule, eight of which are to be played out of town. As usual the important games will be played with Housatonic League opponents.30 THE CHRONICLE The remaining games on the schedule are as follows: December 23, Alumni here; January 8, Branford here; January 15, at Derby; January 16, Milford here: January 22, at Seymour; January 23, East Haven here; January 26, Shelton here; January 29, at Stratford; February 2, Stratford here; February 5, at Branford; February 9, at Milford; February 11, Derby here; February 19, Seymour here; February 20, at Shelton.
