Tune — Cornell Song
Lyman Hall, our well-loved high school, Love we pledge to thee.
May w'e e’er be true and loyal In the days to be.
Lyman Hall, our hearts re-echo To thy ringing call.
May wc love thee, honor, cherish.
Hail, dear Lyman Hall!
From your portals wc may wander Far o’er land and sea;
Yet our happiest, fondest mem’ries E’er drift back to thee.
Through the years our songs shall echo, Shall our voices ring Thine our highest praise and honor E’er to thee wc sing.

The Chronicle 1940 21CLASS HISTORY
On a bright day in 1936 the class of ’40 wandered into Lyman Hall in pairs and threes to start a hectic four years of school life. The Hallowe’en Party was a pronounced success from an eating standpoint. On St. Patrick’s Day we adjourned to the “gym” for a party, where George Magee attempted to take pictures, which looked like the photograph of the inside of a dark-room in operation. The Backes-Ferraro feud got off to a good start and has continued ever since. The basketball team won the inter-class championship for the first time in a row. Bob Nash had all the girls’ hearts a-flutter. In June the teachers declared an armistice and we devoted the next two months to forgetting all that we had learned.
Returning from a two months’ hibernation, we started the school social activities with the annual Hallowe’en Party, where we showed the fluttcry freshmen that being a sophomore was a great honor. Bob Nash was our chief cook and bottle washer, with George Cook as his able assistant. Harriet Gelfalum, the only girl to get elected to an office in three years, was the secretary, and Dave Anderson was our official dough-boy. Bob Nash now had another rival for his heart-fluttering activities. It was noticed that feminine membership in the musical organizations showed a decided increase. Aghast at having learned something in the past ten months, we left school to forget and indulge in anything that didn’t require much work.
Junior year was the year Mr. Torrcy convinced us that we looked like cows when chewing gum, except that cows looked thoughtful. Immediately we practiced looking thoughtful. At the polls Robert Heath won over Robert Nash. Everyone wondered if they were just taking turns at the presidential office. David Anderson, the treasurer, was well versed in money matters, having seen Wall Street. Frank Tomko, since he had kept a diary so long, was an ideal writer downer, so we made him our secretary’. In the Junior Play Charles Wooding and Carolyn Masoni played Guess Again to a full house. As this was merely a public view of a long standing romance, our Thespians were very convincing. From the play to “Prom” was just a long haze of jitterbug jackets and saddle shoes, with lulls in the rush for us to scrape up money for rings and to appease Simon Legree dues collectors. With a furious pace dashed Daniel Boone draped over a squared hypotenuse, pursued by a short hand playing a typewriter. Aeneas was beginning to say Heigh-Ho Silver instead of groaning. When May had come and the “Prom” was in the offing, the young man’s fancy lightly turned to thoughts of a tux and a corsage. The ingenious juniors, profiting by financial theories that would honor a Morgan, finally announced that they could take the affair in their stride. James Lee, the man who came to dinner, also went to “Prom.” Everybody wondered if the red glow in the hall was the new indirect lighting, but soon we all discovered Joseph Fitton just radiating. Right after the “Prom” John Bresnock discovered that Einstein was right all the time, and since then John has scrapped all his theories. We could hardly wait for the seniors to vacate so that we could occupy the upper berths. It was fun to be a junior, but we wanted to be tops, and besides Joe Wrinn and Bob Harrington were by this time big enough to be senoirs. The seniors were perfectly willing to vacate. So in June a stampede for Senior Home Rooms began.
Senior year the C’s had it—Cicero, Confucius, and cardigans. As soon as the boys had seized all the window seats, we were off. The Senior Dance brought forth many new romances. Richard Crocker resolved to devote himself to someone. William Taylor sedately took office after a successful campaign. His political colleagues Richard Johnson as the forgotten man, George Cook as pen-pusher, and James Lee, the man with the dough, were inaugurated with him. Martin Factor now began spouting formulae and was named the test tube kid of chemistry. Ruth Backes tried very hard to steal John Bresnock’s record for being late to class, but John was too practiced in this art. Kenneth Spellacy and Charles Sabo were right on the ball and the talk on the court was “Shoot the score to us, Ken,
The Chronicle 1940
22boy.” A tangerine festival was ordered by the political machine, but the committee for prevention of cruelty to tangerines called the whole thing off. To help us see ourselves as others see us, we had our pictures taken. Charles Stearns is still trying to convince John Olayas that there wasn’t a birdie at all. Then the Chinese gent, one honorable Confucius bowed in. Every one thought he was stealing Thelma JefTords’ stuff. After Fred Fucci could click his heels a la mode, the Senior Play, Tou Can t Take It with Tou. started an era of prosperity in the Senior class treasury. At the “Prom” Harry Riotte found himself dancing alone when his partner got lost during the accustomed break in the shag—a true example of where is my wandering boy tonight.
As this goes to press, plans are being made for Senior Day, when the seniors will stop being sophisticated and consume luscious lollipops; the Class Night committee and the Reception Committee arc bursting with plans; and “There’s music in the air” as the orchestra begins to practice our graduation march.

19 40THE CLASS WILL
Know All Men by These Presents:
That we, senior members of Lyman Hall High School of the town of Wallingford in the county of New Haven and state of Connecticut, being of sound mind and unblemished character, because of the amazingly good “advice” imbedded in our souls by our trustworthy friend and faculty member, Mr. Patten, do make, publish, and declare the following to be our last will and testament, because we all agree that “to give is better than to receive.”
To Mr. Curtis we do hereby bequeath our thanks and gratitude for a most enjoyable year under his supervision.
To the faculty on whose brows have been added more than one wrinkle of worry and care, we do hereby bequeath our memory, which we trust will not recall to them too often the trials and tribulations of their associations with us. To them, also, we leave our undying gratitude for their kind tolerance and guidance which along with a dash of Lady Luck achieved for us this moment at hand: to graduate more worldly wise, carrying with us the slogan “you can get out of school what you put into it,” hoping that it has not too often been a foot.
To the Class of 1941 we do hereby bequeath our position of wisdom and sage philosophy, now resigned to the fact that all good things must some time come to an end.
To the Class of 1942 we do hereby bequeath our five-minute-period “dates” which have been ably supported and led this year by Gordon Smith and Evelyn Doucette.
To the Class of 1943 we do hereby bequeath our school day of eight to one o’clock, with the sage advice that the early bird catches the worm.
To the entering freshmen we do hereby bequeath to each and every one a pair of steel-soled shoes that they may have no trouble in keeping their feet on the ground.
To Miss Disken we do hereby bequeath a pair of drum sticks so that she may beat double time for the type classes.
To Mr. Patten we do hereby bequeath a broom with which to keep the Democratic Party clean.
A few of our more richly endowed classmates, who believe in sharing their wealth, take this opportunity to make the following bequests:
I, Louis Gelate, do hereby bequeath my bright smile, the gleam in my eyes, and my carefree ways to Bud Stimpson.
We, the senior “math” class, do hereby bequeath to Mr. Hall a copy of Joe Miller’s joke book for the benefit of the classes of ’42 and ’43.
I, Barbara Cottrill, bemoaning the fact that through my generosity I have nothing more to offer, do hereby bequeath my only remaining cherished gift, that of “gab,” to my cousin, Nancy Young, who already shows some ability along this line.
I, George Magee, do hereby bequeath my gun-boat shoes to Jane Backes, that she may in wearing them substantiate the already known fact that she can paddle her own canoes.
I, Fred Fucci, do hereby bequeath my ability to play the clown to Albert Killcn.
I, Ken Spellacy, do hereby bequeath my keen “shooting eye” to any boy who wishes to make the varsity basketball team.
I, Chuckic Bridget, do hereby bequeath my slow ambling walk to anybody who isn’t in a hurry.
We, Wilma Freeberg, Gwen Wcstphal, and Doris James, do hereby bequeath our shining blond hair to three brown-haired girls to help them in getting their men.
The Chronicle 1940 24I, Martin Factor, unfortunate enough to be the only person in the whole wide world who thinks an angle can be trisected, do hereby bequeath this theory to any "math” student who wishes to discover that patience is a virtue.
We, the senior French class, do hereby bequeath our far from perfect attendance record to Mr. Torrey, who taught us that absence from school does not make the teacher grow fonder.
I, Harriet Gelblum, do hereby bequeath my ability to get “E’s” to that happy-go-lucky freshman, Shirley Keddy.
I, Dick Johnson, do hereby bequeath to Miss Kathryn Wasilcwski a nickel each day to buy for some individual who might be wandering about during recess wearing that wan and hungry stare a box of Nccco chocolates which have kept me from the pangs of starvation each morning.
I, Dotty Edell, do hereby bequeath my long legs to Katy Hall to aid her in getting to town more quickly when she feels inclined to take a little exercise.
I, Bob Till, do hereby bequeath my decided English accent to the students that they may upon entering their English classes remember where they are at the time and what for.
I, John Kranyak, do hereby bequeath my trumpet to Bert Bertini for use in calling to the persons with whom he wishes to talk, hoping that he may emit a more pleasant sound this way and at the same time retain the mellow tone of his voice for A Cappella Choir.
I, Bob “Burns” McLaughlin, do hereby bequeath the blackboard in Room 1, covered with my witty and humorous sayings, to Miss Mitchell, since was she not the only one who appreciated these works of art?
I, Roger McMahon, in keeping with the rhyme, “a dimple in the chin shows the devil within,” do hereby bequeath the dimple in my chin to Edward Sondcy, who it is rumored lives up to the other half.
I, Margaret Auld, do hereby bequeath my flirtatious ways to Edith Law.
I, John Bresnock, do hereby bequeath my thorough knowledge of the English language and my extraordinary use of fifteen letter words to Robert Germain.
I, Shirlce Sinow, do hereby bequeath my ability to write to Betty Powers, who shows signs of becoming the future “literary genius of Lyman Hall.”
I, Dick Crocker, better known as the “sheik of Northford,” do hereby bequeath my position as lady-killer to Charlie Sweeney.
I, Peter Barbcrino, do hereby bequeath my steadfast business ability to Mr. Mitchell in case he desires to balance the National Budget.
I, Thelma Jeffords, do hereby bequeath my ever-blushing countenance to the first red rose that suffers from anemia.
We, the basketball team, do hereby bequeath our championship to the next group of eager boys.
I, Joe Wrinn, do hereby bequeath my “Connecticut Motor Vehicle Book of Facts” to all students desiring to apply for their drivers’ licenses.
I, Adolph Fenglcr, do hereby bequeath my Model “A” Ford to Peter Palmer.
I, Stanley Nasczniec, believing in good will toward the ladies, do hereby bequeath to Bobbie Condon, my devastating grin, with which he may forever banish the battle between the sexes.
fn witness whereof wc have subscribed our names and set our seal at Wallingford on this 14th day of June, 1940.

The Chronicle 1940 29SENIOR CLASS PLAY
The Senior Class presented You Can’t Take It with You, a thrcc-act comedy, under the direction of Miss Doris M. Farr on April 5 and 6.
It is the story of the eccentric Sycamore family, who keep in their living room everything from snakes to firecrackers. Trouble looms when Tony’s parents, who are “society,” call on Alice and her family on the wrong evening. After a very embarrassing reception, it seems that the two love-birds have failed to bring the two families together. Grandpa turns into a much-needed cupid, while the rest of the family awkwardly try to help. Mr. Henderson appears to collect grandpa’s income tax for the last twenty-three years, only to find that grandpa is legally dead. The differences arc finally settled, and Alice and Tony prepare to marry.
The cast was as follows: George Magee, Grandpa; Beatrice Bordcleau, Penny; Roger McMahon, Tony; Doris James, Alice; Jean Woodtke, Essie; Albert Sutterlin, Ed; Emma Becker, Mrs. Kirby; Richard Johnson, Mr. Kirby; James Lee, Paul Sycamore; Esther Riccitelli, Rheba; Robert Harrington, Donald; Charles Sabo, Mr. DePinna; Fred FuCci, Boris Kolenkhov; Helen Wasilcwski, Olga; John Brcsnock, Henderson; Martin Factor, Donald Bates, and Frank Nasczniec, three G-Men.

Farr, was presented by the following cast of juniors: Sylvia Wilcox, Amanda Simpkins; Jack Hubbard, Ezra Simpkins; Felix Hulicki, Pudge Rogers; Francis Carroll, the professor; John Dunn, Tommy Tinker; Norma Ferriere, Nancy Howe; Helen Potter, Virginia Lee Byrd; Elaine Heslin, Pat Gillis; George Hellcman, Nawa; Howard Gianotti, Savador Del Santos; Shirley Sprague, Pepita Del Santos; and William Bordcleau, a rancher. The action took place on a southern Arizona ranch managed by two New Englanders. Into the story came among other interesting persons, a pair of Mexicans, a pugilist, and a thief. A lost treasure is located and the thief is punished before the play comes to a happy conclusion for the hero and heroine.
Raymonds Combs was the general chairman assisted by Helen McCartin, Alice Johnson, John Wooding, Bernard Gallagher, Robert Condon, Alan Carey, Sally Newton, Shirley Jeffords, and Ethelyn Szad with their committees.

With all but a few letter men returning to the line-up, the Orangemen went through a tough but successful season with all the players working hard and winning many thrilling games. Suffering three losses, twice to the Branford Hornets and once to Stratford, they were forced to give to the powerful Stratford quintet the Housatonic title won in 1939. Because Stratford was a Class A team, the Orangemen were admitted to the Class B state finals, where they were tied with Branford and East Haven for second place in the Housatonic League. After a hard battle for the state crow'n they were rewarded with the title, Class B State Champions.
At a special meeting in the auditorium the team was awarded a cup, and each player received a gold basketball.
The merchants of the town honored the team with a banquet in the state armory. At this time Coach Fernald received a gold wrist watch and the players, gold rings.
A short practice season because of wet ground probably caused the loss of the season’s first league game. Downed by Seymour, the Orangemen came back, however, to beat Durham, Shelton, and Branford but again faced defeat with Stratford and Middletown. In most of the games the boys have shown great hitting strength.
At the time of going to press, games with Derby, Middletown, Milford, Durham, and East Haven were still to be played.

The State Debate, although not successful for the Lyman Hall team, saw some new blood taking part, giving great promise for next year’s tournament.
