Recalling our first impressions of high-school life and comparing them with the carefully formed opinions we now possess, we suddenly realize the lasting effect that these four years have had upon us. From self-centered children, interested primarily in ourselves as individuals, we have gradually de- veloped into more sensible beings, appreciative of the responsibilities of belonging to a group and in- terested in doing our part as a class in contributing to the welfare of the school. We have learned just how necessary it is to work and have known the thrill of well-deserved honors. Through the guidance and counsel of an able faculty we have come to know the meaning of discipline and the need for understanding our associates. Now as we stand as young adults, our thoughts for the most part lie with the future rather than with the past, although we readily acknowledge that the past is the basis for the future. We realize that each event as it occurred was an important step in the formation of our characters, and in order to recall the outstanding moments of that formation, we have kept this diary of our last, most memorable year. .

Indeed, it is the ideal season. for what other time of year can rival autumn's cheerful- ness and its tingling morning air, which turns to sunny warmth as the day progresses? There is no better remedy for summer's sleepiness than the ever-changing fantasy of au- tumn trees and skies. Entering school as we do in the fall of the year, we are deeply af- fected by the abounding vitality of everything around us. Our thoughts, and often our actions, follow the gaily skipping leaves-hurrying, al- ways hurrying. We are breathless in anticipation of the great deeds we plan, the obstacles we shall so easily overcome, and the fine rec- ords we shall make for ourselves. But, like autumn's frivolous leaves, driven by the wind, we drift in a group, traveling in one direction, never thinking of individuality, aiming toward no set goal. Think- ing of this, we slow our pace to remember that the motion of the leaves, constant though it seems, is a temporary thing, soon to end with winter's frost. We resolve to culti- vate our ambitions and never let them wither as do the autumn leaves. The hopes with which we have begun will never fade nor lose their freshness, but will accompany us into maturity, soaring before us like leaves and bordering our path. ,v,,F,,',,:i5,,923g1:uZA' E:-11-ig. .,.?,.3f: 45,-5, x .. .' . , , ..,-'sae' --its-t Sufi --if?-se'-1-.

A pleasant evening at home is most conducive to listening, but when the record supply has been exhausted, we inevi- tably turn to studies. Aside from basketball and holiday activities, winter's frosty days are most adaptable to learning. With winter comes the New Year, intro- ducing new intentions, shutting off one more small part of adolescence. Every step we take from here need be a steady one, ad- vancing toward adulthood and leaving for the scrapbook the moments which are past. No longer will others guide, pamper, and protect us, or simplify our duties. The time has come for us to stand and work alone, to pave the roads which have been pointed out. Our great help must come from our- selves, and we must prove our capabilities. So with every clean fall of snow we renew our determination to attain our ambitions and to leave our marks upon the world as deeply as we leave our footprints in the snow. x ' -, l-4'.'l.,w1-:'.w - .'. il- F-f' .ff Q. . - . , -1g.1,.:-..-, 1 5 - -5- L -:4',rf": 4' ' 1 A 0 ',. p - ' 'S ff--. - . -. , e.. ,. .- , - rv if N, +. .. , .,, -1 0.4 ,-.J i 1, ..., L.,4..: 'rv The pride of L.H.H.S.

Its members have participated in the meetings of these organizations, and one member has been elected to next year's executive board of N.E.S.G.A. At two joint meetings of the Choate and Lyman Hall Student Councils, problems of mutual interest were discussed. At all home basketball games the members sold candy and soda. A committee was set up to look into the possibility of forming a service group that would serve the various charities of the town. The auditorium committee, consisting of one member from each class, arranged for auditorium programs to be presented. Council members participated in the insurance program, provided leadership in keeping the school neat, and manned the school traffic posts.

Carter THE NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY The Lyman Hall chapter of the National Honor Society, formed in 1955, is a relatively new branch of the organization. At the beginning of this year the chapter had only two members, Margaret Marchi and Marie DiFranco. This year Mr. Carter succeeded Mr. Stevens, who had previously served as sponsor, and seven new members were added. An investiture ceremony was held on january 19, when all nine members were oflicially received into the National Honor Society. The requirements for membership are character, leadership, scholarship, and service, and only through possession of these traits can a student attain such an honor. The fact that one is a member of this society entitles him to many privileges and considera- tions. Honor Society members are given preference among college applicants and are free to compete for 317,500 in scholarships which the society awards yearly to its members. Every person elected to the society receives a membership card and a gold pin their fields.

A combination of good height, speed, and shooting ability made the team a dangerous quintet. The high lights of the sea- son were successive victories over Shelton 80-55 and Southington 60-59. During the year the team met Derby, Wilcox Tech, Southington, Goodwin Tech, Seymour, Shelton, East Haven, North Haven, Bran- ford, and the alumni.

Q-+5 filfllfl 9 With spring's calm we find the time to stop a moment and look back to see what has been done. The softness of the air and the sweet sounds of the season give us no choice but to relax awhile and wonder how the months have passed so quickly. The freshmen now are breathing more easily, hoping that their coming years will be even more successful, while the sophomores are by this time fairly certain that their future will be full. The uppermost thought in a junior's mind is that of being a senior, but the feeling which dominates the seniors is sorrow. With spring comes graduation, a fare- well to the friends and surroundings they have come to know so well. The peace and careless wandering of each spring day seem to signify an ending, the closing of the final chapter in a well-loved book. But the season's greatest attribute and that which most impresses seniors is a feeling of beginning. It seems to symbol- ize the very newness that they face, the unseen values which life holds and which are soon to be uncovered. They may be uncertain as to what the future holds, but no one is afraid. All are secure in the knowledge that they have been pre- pared to make this spring the real begin- ning of their lives.

The freshman girls' chorus is composed of forty-three members of the freshman class. This year the group sang at a Christmas meeting of the Retired People's Club and at one of the school concerts. good fun in school.

We shall write to our congressman and ask him please to see to it that some sort of police barrier is erected so that the jubilant inhabitants of the town will be restrained in praising and congratulating the future Eisenhowers, Hepburns, DiMaggios, and Rockefellers, when their accomplishments are finally made known to the public. The Class of '56 has produced some potential powerhouses, and as soon as we get those diplomas- watch out, Big World, here we come! It was a bright day in 1952 when we first entered Lyman Hall High officially as freshmen. Then again, it could have been raining and lightning outside, most of us were too petrified to notice. High school was a big step for us as young, unseasoned, eighth-grade graduates, but since we realized that we would not be allowed to o'erleap it, we placed our noses to the grindstone and prepared ourselves for four concentrated, stiff years of study and hard work. You see by that last statement that even then we had good intentions. Upperclassmen inevitably comment on how little the incoming freshmen are, how we winced every time we heard one of them speak on this delicate subject. The first month was probably the hardest, but then came the annual freshman Halloween party, which was our first taste of the Lyman Hall social whirl. Tom Fanning, who won the prize for the funniest costume, received a package of nuts. Pat Sittnick won the prettiest costume prize, and Sandra Dombroski was the "originality girl." A good time was had by all. The year wore on, and in a game between East Haven and Lyman Hall, we as freshmen were overjoyed and a little amazed to see Lyman Hall win the Class B high-school basketball championship. Seeing our wonderful Cinderella team 'in action made us proud to be Hallites. And then came the spring, and the hot weather, and finally thevacation. Before we knew it, we were back in school again, but this time we were sophomores, the upperclassmen of the afternoon session. Now it was our turn to comment on the stature of the incoming freshmen. With our sophomore year came plane geometry and biology which we thought had us licked until, armed with a protractor, compass, micro- scope, and lab slide, we received sufficient help from our teachers to lick these subjects- well, at least around the edges anyway. Bruce johnson was awarded special honors in the photography contest when he won first and second prizes for his photography. S h-h-h-h! ! I The rest of the year passed rather uneventfully, and we were beginning to look forward to our junior year and to at last being able to attend the morning session. And with the coming of June came our well-earned summer vacation. Fall found us shuliling back to school, spoiled by the lazy days and happy vacations that we had spent, but we were ready to begin our all-impressive junior year. Our first oflicial act as juniors was to choose our class officers. This act was performed successfully when we elected Ronnie Riccio, president, Cliff Bampton, vice-president, Patt Bukowski, secretary, and Marion Fanfesti, treasurer. Our next activity was to select our class rings. CRemember,how long and patiently we waited to receive those rings?D The juniors turned producers in November when we presented The Iewelled Cat, a mystery in three acts. For some, taking part in the play was an entirely new experience, and Sandra Dombroski, Roger Hancock, Gloria Mis, james Gere, Roxanne Erskine, Roberta Ollayos, and James Koczak did an admirable bit of acting. Stormy, the cat, played an important part, too. Without him the play might have had to be The Iewelled Dog. Then after months of anticipation came our wonderful junior prom. On that night in May we were carried into the colorful and romantic atmosphere of gay New Orleans in keeping with our Mardi Gmr theme which the decorations chairmen, Dan Hovenstine and Mildred Burkhart, captured skillfully in three-dimension decorations in our class colors of pink and black, and Linda Wilson and Paul Sabino, co-chairmen, really worked hard to make the prom a success. In the following month another cycle was completed, and we were paroled, but not for good behavior, we fear. Thus ended our exciting and unforgettable junior year. July and August slipped by, and in September we headed. once more in the direction of Lyman Hall, not as mere underclassmen but as honorable seniors. At our first class meeting we chose our officers to lead us through this, our most important year. They were Paul Sabino, president, Ted Rosick, vice-president, Margaret Marchi, secretary, and Evelyn Hems, treasurer. Our senior dance in November began the long series of various activities throughout the year. Under the capable leadership of Dan Hovenstine, general chairman, the dance with its Autumn Leaver theme was a fine one. The high light of the dance was the crowning of Marie DiFranco, our class queen. She was attended by Linda Wilson and Marion Fanfesti. Posing for class pictures was our next big project, and we came through without a scratch. December brought the holidays, and our attention once more turned away from school books to holiday thoughts. After a much-needed vacation, we returned to school in january to more association with pencils, books, Macbeth, and test tubes. Marie DiFranco was chosen in this month to receive the D.A.R. Award for 1956. We also turned producers again to present The Poor Firh on March 16 and 17, and Nancy-jean Devine did a fine job as general chairman. Next the basketball season became a main interest in school, Captain joe White and the other members of the team played those games as good sports and hard workers should. With the conclusion of the basketball season, spring, with its flowers, warm weather, and baseball, came upon us. Ted Moynihan, baseball captain, spurred the team on, and we were sure that some of our Lyman Hall boys were good enough to be "big league" players. This year when the baseball season ended, we realized that the time was approaching when we would be leaving the school in which we had spent four of the best years of our lives. Now thoughts of graduation are passing through our minds, and we are looking forward to becoming part of the outside, adult world. But we are also remembering our years at Lyman Hall, for we have had unforgettable experiences and have made life-long friends. And though each of us will go his own individual way, we shall always be bound together as a class through cherished memories of our school days.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE Dem' C lafsmates, In the last four years many things have happened which have served to better our understanding of ourselves and of others. Through our high-school experiences we have been prepared to face life's most dillicult situations. During our days at Lyman Hall we have formed strong and lasting impressions of what it means to be part of a social group and have become aware of the responsibilities which are ours as the leaders of tomorrow. Because you have shown such confidence in me as your president, I should like to show the same confidence in you by saying that I am sure each of you will reach your goal in life, whatever it is. May you never lose the spirit of friendliness and cooperation with which all of you are endowed, and may good luck and success follow wherever you go. Sincerely yours, Paul Sabino SCHOOL SONG Tune: Cornell S Ong 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. 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. Through the years our songs shall echog Shall our voices ring.

We, the Class of '56, do so establish a trust fund to be used to construct an elevator for the incoming freshmen, which will move at a minimum speed and in maxi- mum time from Room 23 to the swimming pool. ' We, the members of the Class of 1956, bequeath to the incoming seniors a copy of Word Wealth that they may work and fume and finally emerge victorious to balile and impress their unsuspecting friends and relatives. I, Paul Sabino, bequeath to the incoming presidents of the future senior classes my book on parliamentary procedure. We, Roxanne Erskine and James Gere, leave our dramatic talent to any future Barrymores who hit Lyman Hall by storm. We, Skip Adams, Fran Wheaton, Ken Lagace, Bob Reig, Fred Wahl, and Tom Fanning, leave our love for jam sessions to next year's "cool cats." We, Pat Sittnick and Cosmo Iannuzzi, leave to any future Marge and Gower Champion the talent which we have acquired these four years at Lyman Hall. We, Barbara Ardo and Millie Burkhart, leave our aching muscles and ear-splitting husky voices to Brenda Bartek, Barbara Faltz, Lynn McCarthy, Judy McMenamin, and Maureen Sheehy so that they may spur the team on in future games. I, Joe White, leave my bulging biceps to jack Priester in the hope that he may support the team as well as I have. I, joan Budrow, leave my innocent but comical reverberations to a cute junior girl who may have my selfsame ability for smiling sincerely at the teachers. I, Bruce Johnson, leave my insight into photographic subjects to any aspiring "shutter bug." We, Nancy-Jean Devine and David Carlson, leave our files of imaginative ideas and well-worn pen points to Sue Rubin and Norman Freeman. I, Danny Hovenstine, leave my paint brush and imagination to Judy Kapish, who is already showing signs of dabbling. I, Bob Neary, leave my "Nearymobile" to any pilot who can maneuver its ancient body around corners. I, Linda Wilson, leave my bottle of headache pills and large prom decoration patterns to any budding artist. We, Jackie Hill, Jim Koczak, and Bill Gallagher, leave our pads and pencils to the future roving Compass reporters of L. H. H. S. I, Cliff Bampton, leave my masculine appeal to Barry Farnham, who is already wow-W-wing the girls! we gladly leave you. We, Marie Balderacchi and Rosemary Mastroianni, do so bequeath our nimble fingers to the future typists of the C omparr staff. We, Gwen Walford and Dave Stevens, leave our Bach, Beethoven, and Belbop to Mary Lou Stevens and Dick Fanning, who already have acquired that professional touch. I, Evelyn'Hems, do so bequeath my talent of balancing to the future juggler of the senior class treasury. We, Bibsie Ollayos and Ted Moynihan, bequeath our bulging folios of impromptu jesrs and corny jokes to janet Orefice and Mike Kelly. I, Alicia Audette, leave my good times at All-State to Ellie Moslow, who didn't do too badly on her own! I, Bill Applegate, leave the keys to Stimpson's delivery jeep to someone who prefers to ride. I, Marie DiFranco, leave my popularity, poise, and perseverance to the next senior class queen. We, Marion Fanfesti and Ronnie Riccio, leave our looking glasses to any future Ava Gardners and Tony Curtises. I, John Norton, leave my gray matter to Bill Bayne, who already has acquired a talent of gaining an "A" average. I, Margaret Marchi, leave my talent of unscrambling mixed-up minutes of the senior class meetings to any future speed writer. I, Ted Rosick, leave the occupancy of president of the Student Council to any person willing to undertake the responsibility and do it well. I, Gloria Mis, leave my trim appearance to Mary Ann Lanzoni, who is doing just fine by herself. We, Phil Crebase and Ken White, bequeath our ingenious crate packing technique to john Lee and Menhart Jacob. We, Buddy Young, Steve Vass, Gary Scranton, and Carl Vergean, leave our loyal love for Yalesville to the future commuters to the "big city." I, Alex Kovach, leave my famous crew cut to any "long hair." We, Barbara Fazzino, Marilyn Valente, Carol Ginalski, and Adele Czaja, bequeath our abilities to. do a job well the first time to any people who think they have the ambition. We, Tom Buckingham and Roger Hancock, leave our theoretical discussions and scientific dissertations to the future Einsteins of Lyman Hall. I, Bill Regan, leave my dry wit and sarcasm to any underclassman who can take the replies resulting from them. We, Bob Romanski, Guy Pilla, Thomas Mosdale, and james Howe, leave our shining limousines to the most prosperous underclassmen who can not only afford the gas and maintenance bill, but who also can assume the worries that come with them. I, Vincent Koblish, leave my airplane glue and creative talents to the most ambi- tious model airplane enthusiast of the junior class. I, Roger Gay, leave my memories of Boy Scouting, along with the many souvenirs I've collected, to a person who has like interests and a good sense of sportsmanship. We, Patt Bukowski and Buttons Dombroski, leave our common interest in "Oak7 dale" to the underclassmen most likely to catch the fever of the theatre. I, Mel Reskin, leave my "best dressed and nearest" appearance to any up and coming Man of the Year. j We, Alfred Vaillancourt, John Wight, Bernie Klappersack, Joe Kelleher, Bob Hotchkiss, Bob Bish, Robert DeBaise, Bob Dean, Vinnie Fischer, and Ronnie Kavanagh, do so bequeath our carefree ways to the junior boys who like to live a happy-go-lucky life. We, Gwen Walford and Bibsie Ollayos, can only leave the remaining unused adjectives in Webrter'5 Dictionary, our writers' cramp, and our high hopes for future success to the Class of 1957.
