THE CHRONICLE 21
Transferred to Other Schools
James Oflen, a senior, and Avis Offen, a junior, have moved to Meriden.
Dorothy Macdowall and Leonard Wassmer are attending school in New London.
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.

It gives us great pleasure to welcome Miss Ellen L. Disken of Concord, Massachusetts, who was graduated from Boston University with a B.S. degree. Miss Disken, who succeeds Mrs. John McGuire (Miss Dorothy Martin) as our commercial teacher, formerly taught at the Baymond High School in Baymond, New Hampshire.
Miss Mary L. 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.
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. The three new juniors are Marie Whitty from the Sacred Heart High School in Waterbury, Florence McDonald from the Girls’ High School, Boston, Massachusetts, and Irving Factor from the Samuel J. Tilden High School in Brooklyn, New York. In the Sophomore Class we have Kathryn Whitty, who comes to us from Wilby High School in Waterbury. Let’s give them a warm welcome and make them feel at home.

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.
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.
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.

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.
