Your dauntless spirit lives on even after your death.

SCHOOL SONG TUNE — CORNELL SONG Lyman Hall, our well-loved high school, Love we pledge to thee, May we e’er be true and loyal In the days to be. CHORUS Lyman Hall, our hearts re-echo To thy ringing call. May we love thee, honor, cherish, Hail, dear Lyman Hall. From your portals we may wander Far o’er land and sea; Yet our happiest, fondest mem’ries E’er drift back to thee. CHORUS Through the years our songs shall echo; Shall our voices ring. Thine our highest praise and glory E’er to thee we sing. CAROLINE LOOMIS '26 25SENIOR CLASS HISTORY History certainly was made when in the fall of 1950 we stormed the mighty portals of Lyman Hall. The dignity of the school was usurped and the teachers were distraught. We seemed human enough as we cavorted through the corridors, but in the classrooms we manifested a certain donkeylike trait; we balked at education! The problem? How to beat a little knowledge into our pointed little heads. The campaign our illustrious educators waged was a meritorious and noble effort. It is now bruited about that we are of average intelligence and that we may have assimilated considerable knowledge. In every other area our gay animal spirits and strong determination carried us to astronomical heights. Nancy Griswold as "Morton's Salt Girl" and Ruth Bercier and Roberta Robinson as the "Toni Twins” added greatly to the success of our first undertaking — the annual freshman Hallowe'en party. The rest of our freshman year passed quickly, and we found ourselves attracted to the leisure of "no more pencils; no more books." Surprisingly enough, we started our sophomore year in a much calmer manner. To us was entrusted the responsibility of leading the freshmen and the honor of receiving the admiration and respect of our younger brethren. Led by our jayvee cheerleaders, we cheered our teams to victory. A great honor bestowed on our classmate, Alice Moore, was the first prize in the American Legion Contest, awarded her because of the excellence of her essay, Responsibilities and Opportunities of an American Citizen. June found us stowing away our plane geometry contracts and our Latin vocabularies for the more fascinating scenery of shore cottages and the more enjoyable thoughts of the money we would earn at our summer jobs. Our junior year brought about many changes, one of which was getting up in the morning and trying to beat that eight o’clock tardy bell. With our hair half-combed and our eyelids heavy, we walked dazedly into our homerooms, looking quite disheveled. In October of '52 we elected four charming personalities to guide us throughout the year. They were Bob Baker, big man with the whip; Willie Gibson, little man with the whip; Elinor Novak, chief scribbler; and Ann Berger, cabbage grabber. 28One outstanding incident that occurred in our junior year was the winning of the class M state championship by beating the powerful East Haven team. How could we miss with three of our own classmates, Ernie Bercier, Ted Krol, and Gene Musso, real stars in the basketball world! Then came an event which we shall always remember — our junior prom. With Ann Berger, general chairman, and Barbara Smith, chairman of decorations, we danced under the soft lights and palm trees of glorious Blue Hawaii. It was close to the end of a wonderful year when, with Willie Gibson and Ernie Bercier, co-chairmen, we produced a smash hit. The Wasp’s Nesi. Everyone enjoyed the antics of Annette Bergeron and Ronne Mar-hevka as they displayed their dramatic talents before two appreciative audiences. After a summer vacation, which went much too quickly, we returned to the familiar corridors of Lyman Hall, feeling sure that everyone was impressed by our new dignity as seniors. We found that Miss Ellen Shea, dean of girls and vice-principal, who had played an important role in our high-school careers, had accepted another position and had been succeeded by Miss Ethel Kennedy and Dr. Charles Latimer. To start the year off right, we elected our class officers: Alan Krupp, president; Ernie Bercier, vice-president; Virginia Clark, secretary; and Bette Anne Mushinsky, treasurer. We shall never forget our senior dance, when Elinor Novak was crowned queen with Ann Berger and Ginnic Clark her charming attendants. With Ronnie Marhevka as general chairman and Lois Kraszewski as chairman of decorations, we danced to the music of Eddie Wittstein's orchestra midst the regal beauty of the "Coronation." In December Ann Berger was elected D. A. R. winner for 1954. Ann was selected by her classmates and the faculty for her service, dependability, patriotism, and leadership. One of the last big incidents for ’54 was the senior play, June Wedding, an exhilarating comedy by Marijane and Joseph Hayes, given on the evenings of April 9 and 10. And now the time has come for us to say farewell to Lyman Hall, to pick up our precious memories, and tuck them away in the farthermost reaches of our hearts. Perhaps some day we can take them out and examine more closely the wonderful treasures that we have found here. Perhaps, too, we shall realize more fully the true meaning of our motto — "Success is the reward of toil." Ruth Bercier Patricia Collins 29Seniors recall the high lights SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS President — Alan Krupp Vice-President — Er.nest Bercier Secretary — Virginia Clark Treasurer — Bette Anne Mushinsky Adviser — Richard M. Burner Mr. Burner Senior Class Adviser Friends: For most of us these four years at Lyman Hall High School have been the most enjoyable years of our lives. I feel that the wonderful spirit of friendliness that exists at Lyman Hall has been the chief contributing factor to this happiness. I wish to express our sincere thanks to the faculty and to the administrators, who have given us excellent guidance. In the future may noble thoughts and worthy ambitions direct all of the Class of 1954.

Barbara Ardo Marie DiFranco Susan Block Linda WilsonHaving lived four years of a short but full life in Lyman Hall High, we, the Class of 1954, do hereby proclaim this to be our last will and testament. We, the Class of 1954, leave all our unfinished homework to the Class of '55, as if they won't have enough of their own. I, Sandra Doolittle, bequeath my hilarious antics and comical giggle to Mary Goodwin, who is already experienced in the art. I, Paul Latcham, state that the unused portion of my height is to be equally divided among all future seniors. (Editor's Note: We are sure there is more than enough to go around!) We, the senior chemistry students, leave to the Steinmetzes of '55 the burden of paying for the broken test tubes and damaged apparatus. We, the senior girls, leave to the future senior girls all our amusing excuses for skipping gym. We, the senior boys in the Class of 1954, leave to the future senior boys all our excuses for getting out of study hall to watch the girls take gym. We, the weekend chess players of our class, Jim Brady and Alan Krupp, leave to the up-and-coming masters all the frustrating hours spent on the games that never ended because the public library closed before we had finished. I, Tim McGee, will my fine conducting of the singing that precedes the auditorium programs to Charles Houlihan, another Toscanini. We, the lovers of the senior class, and we don’t mean music lovers, leave to all future romanticists the heartaches and heartbreaks of having a steady. We, Ted Krol, Ernie Bercier, and Gene Musso, leave our title of the ' triple threat" to Stanley Tencza, Gene Fontanella, and Bill Howland, the future hoop stars of Lyman Hall. We, the last minute exam crammers, leave to next year’s unfortunate, misguided souls several tanks of black coffee and a roll of Scotch tape to hold the eyelids open. I, Ronald Marhevka, leave all the pop tunes I play on the saxophone during the late afternoons to Francis Wheaton, a future Harry James. I, Dawn Baker, bequeath to Lynn Becroft, my fun-to-be-with personality and my sparkling smile, with the hope that it will bring her fame and fortune. 66To Miss Kennedy and Dr. Latimer, we, the seniors of Lyman Hall, do leave our thanks and appreciation for their wonderful help in assisting us towards our future careers. We, Jerry Socha and Jean Muszynski, leave our dancing feet and our love for the polka to any future Marge and Gower Champion. We, Elinor Novak, Ann Berger, and Virginia Clark, bestow our beguiling ways and school-girl charm on next year's royal trio. We, the Celibors, leave our gold and black blazers to the Otnots, and may they wear them with pride. I, Michael Shippen, leave my numberless suits of clothes and haberdashery to any millionaire who has the money to pay for the huge cleaning bill. We, the football team of Lyman Hall High, leave our cuts, bruises, and a large bottle of iodine to next year's Los Angeles "Rams". I, George Bird, gladly bequeath my mastery of the Spanish language to Clive Pinsker, an up-and-coming professor. We, the Betty Crockers of Room 15, leave our new Hotpoint electric stoves and modern appliances to next year's homebreakers. I, Robert Schumacher, leave my unmatched ability to play Dragnet on the tuba to a fellow musician, Edward Zabrowski. We, the boys’ gym classes, will to the incoming juniors our clean basketball games and love for calesthenics. I, Michael Schoff, leave to all future late sleepers one baseball bat with which to demolish that ringing alarm clock. We, Annette Bergeron and Sara Wooding, leave to Julie Murano and Bunny Collett our great stage portrayals in Lyman Hall’s annual dramatics. To my protege, Albino Figueiredo, I, John Quigley, leave my long, black sideburns. We, Roberta Robinson and Richard DeBaise, leave to the talented writers of next year’s will, our ability to get things done together, along with a gross of note paper, a few borrowed pencils, and the joy of having belonged to Lyman Hall. 67 ROBERTA ROBINSON RICHARD DeBAISEAs the years progress, we find much to our astonishment that Wallingford is the capital of Connecticut. The extremely modern capitol was built under the direction of the Schomburg and Parker Construction Company. The head engineer was Mac Hubbard, and his assistants were John Welton, designer of the new three-wheeled cars, Ralph Acabbo, John Quigley, and John Korab, designers of the Celibors’ Hall. Much credit is also due to the skilled craftsmanship of Christian Trefz, Angelo Morganti, Thomas Sullivan, and John DelGrego. Setting off the brilliance of the capital is an immense gold dome, which was donated by Dorothy and Donald Caruth, inheritors of a large gold mine in South America. The managers of the mine are Richard Erff and Tony Laraway, well-known excavators. The capitol is said to be the most modern government building in the United States. The governor, Ronald Marhevka, has been extremely busy for the past months preparing for the dedication of the new capitol building. In Mike Ship-pen's corner of the Wallingford Herald, the Governor expressed gratitude to his competent staff—Bob Baker, head of the Department of Education; William Carr of the Highway Department; Flora Bella, private secretary to the Governor; Warren Williams of the State Agricultural Department; and Richard Chevarie, program chairman. The very attractive welcoming committee were wearing mink stoles purchased at the Fazzino and Jobbagy Fur Salon. Among the receptionists were Delores Catala, famous television celebrity; Mary Jean Kinney and Alvera D'Agostino, models for New York designers; Charlotte Edwards, Gloria DeVito, Jane Pogmore, and Marie Cornaglia, models for Italian haircuts; and Kay Balderacchi, well-known Paris hair stylist. They welcomed the President of the United States, Alan Krupp, who motored to Connecticut with his faithful chauffeur, Jim "Diamond" Brady. They are staying at the Aristocrat Hotel owned by Thomas Freschi and George McArthur. President Krupp was guarded by his usual "Dragnet" staff—Ronald DeBaise, Martin Schultz, Dawn Baker, Francis LeBarron, Jeannette Berger, Bob Schumacher, and Fred Clark, who were just seeking the "facts." The President’s assistants were Secretary of State, Mario Cavallo; Secretary of War, Joseph Choti; Secretary of the Treasury, Annette Bergeron; and Secretary of Labor, Bernard O'Grady. Following the dedication ceremonies, a gala meal was prepared by the expert home economists, Duane Brown and Margaret Kelley, head dieticians of the Wallingford Memorial Hospital; Carol Selmecki, owner of the Greasy Spoon Restaurant; Gertrude Collins, dietician of North Haven's Tip Toe Inn; and Carol 68Huey, chief dietician at Wallingford’s DeAngelis Hotel. Mary Ann Dorsey, Adeline Guest, Martha Everding, Mary Cwirka, and Jeanette Basarab volunteered to cook the meal. The delicious chickens were donated by the wealthy hatchery owners, Ralph Cornwell and Edward Butler. We also heard that the donators of the milk and butter were Edward Kalandyk and Thomas Bouza, owners of a large dairy farm. The vegetables were furnished by various truck farm owners, Robert Doyle, Richard Heike, and Robert DuBois. While speaking of farms, we must mention that Mark Proctor and James Aftosmis have been successfully raising rhinoceroses on the outskirts of Wallingford. The animals were shipped to America by the Brockway and Latcham Distributors of Southern Africa. We also found that Shirley Evon and Patricia Collins have married very wealthy cobra hunters and are now living in South Africa. A very entertaining progam following the meal was headed by Shirley Reskin and Terry Riley, who operate a school of gymnastics in northern Alaska. The master of ceremonies was Barbara Young, who has a radio program every morning at 4:30 a.m. on station L.H.H.S. The first part of the entertainment featured a basketball exhibition. Ernie Bercier demonstrated the advantages of the new square basketball. Richard Marx displayed his skill at shooting for baskets twenty feet high. Ted Krol and Gene Musso showed their breath-taking abilities as trick shot artists. Henry Misiaszek also added to the excitement with his weight-lifting act, and Barbara Battis displayed her acrobatic abilities. Gerald Socha and Jean Muszynski gave a preview of the new dance steps taught in their famous dance studios. A fashion show was given by many of our own classmates. They were Virginia Preisner, demonstrator of the new Fords on television; Mary Peters, director of a modeling studio in Paris; Elinor Novak, model for the cover of Vogue; Antonette Gaudio, instructor at the Leavitt Modeling School; and Janice Lenart, winner of the Miss Connecticut title. Many of these fashion creations were designed by Ruth Bercier, owner of a designing studio in Persia, and Betsy Russell, designer for Hollywood Studios. A musical show was also presented by Richard DeBaise, composer of the music for the Broadway hit Sweet Ninety-Six and Never Been Hitched by Jill Fernald; Virginia Clark and Timothy McGee, cool clarinet players for the Bee Boppers' Symphony Orchestra, also displayed their talents. Doris Rider sang many solos from her repertoire, made famous in Bagdad's opera house; and Nancy Griswold, Carol McCollom, and Alicia Smith, a famous American string trio, ended the musical portion of the show. To conclude the program, a play entitled Rip Roaring, written by Alice Moore, was given. It featured Sara Wooding, wealthy star of London movies; Rose Gaudio, who has just arrived from Broadway; and Michael Schoff, who has recently become a second Humphrey Bogart. While walking through the halls, we observed that many pictures were on display by such artists as Barbara Smith, feature painter for the cover of Esquire; Larry Brill, art teacher in the Wallingford ultra-modern high school; Nancy Pog-more, an artist at Walt Disney's studios; Barbara Geremia of the Boston Art 69Studios; and Lenny Tremaglio, who also designs clown suits for the Big Top Circus. Hustling through the crowds were the ever important newspaper reporters and photographers. We saw Paul Broggi, who is sports editor for the Connecticut Daily Bazooka. Also present were Bob White and Charles Beckman, chief photographers for the New York Times; Roberta Robinson, awarded the Kundolf Medal for writing the best gossip of Wallingford; John Rudzavice, winner of the "Big Story" award; Ann Berger and Bob Santi, official reporters for the World Times. A tour of the atomic factory, located in Wallingford, was planned. The tour was conducted by Jean Briggs and June Battis, receptionists at the state capitol. The factory staff of directors was composed of Howard Arnold, Lorraine Rosadini, Stephanie Stepanski, George Bird, and Mary-Frances Kowalski, who have recently been doing research in Nevada. While going through the "lab," we noticed Lois Kraszewski, experimenting to find the cure for heart disease in mice; Bette Mushinsky, inventor of the new atomic blanket, guaranteed to keep you warm; Michael Lyons and Joseph Preira, designers of the new atomic-powered rocket ship, due to leave for Jupiter in one week; and Carol Fenick, professor of chemistry at Wallingford’s high school. Upon completing the tour of the new atomic factory, we ventured forth to seek diversion from the highly technical atmosphere. To our amazement, we learned from one of Connecticut’s most prominent representatives, Wilbert Gibson, that Wallingford had the most unusual Chamber of Commerce — NO MEN! He related that Dolores LeBlanc was president of The Animal Kingdom Insurance Company; Rosemarie Kowalski and Nancy Sabo owners of the Too Small Bathing Suit Company; Nancy Freeman and Joan Lough-lin, attorneys-at-law; Lorraine Mangier, oral surgeon affiliated with the Tenedine Dental Laboratory; and Judy Sullivan, director of Wallingford's Memorial Hospital, were the most active members. Back at the capitol we observed many groups conversing, among whom was Gail Bartek, air hostess for the Universial Airlines. She informed us that Mary Steinke and her crew, Jean Wallace, Catherine Laden, Jeanette Heiduck, Catherine Ivan, and Mary Rosick had left for a trip to the moon in a rocket and, as yet, have not returned. Lorraine Geremia told us that Phyllis Warzeniak, whom she met at the airport in Dallas, Texas, had been raising parakeets in southern California. The fact was never mentioned, however, that Jacquelyn DeLucia and Sandra Doolittle would be back at work in the morning, sweeping up the mess! After leaving the dedication ceremonies, we were all thrilled to know that our home town, Wallingford, had progressed to its ultimate. It was a wonderful feeling to know that each of us had had a part in making its history.
