We, the Class of 1944, dedicate our
yearbook to Mr. james Lockman. Vim"

Senicvz 61644 Jlww,
FRESH farm HOW, from grammar school, we
entered Milne and confidently took our I.
tests-results: no I. During the very first
assembly we were made embarrassingly con-
spicuous. Before the whole school we were
dismissed and made to march out single file,
ears burning, as the other grades looked us
over and commented-and what comments.
At the end of two weeks, however, we were
seasoned veterans, climbing the right stairs,
and acting like we owned the Annex. Remem-
ber how the Social Studies classroom chairs
afforded us much entertainment. In smart-
aleek fashion we would tip them way back, and
perch precariously. Then the teacher would
spot the guilty one and yell, and the startled
student would go over backwards. Do you
remember Sue's birthday party? We were in-
itiated into the daring game of Post-Office.
Joyce Knapp ran round and round in a big
closet with a would-be wolf pursuing deter-
minedly. Miss Hayes' homeroom held a Val-
entine party, and lean Fig had a Buster-Brown.
haircut. We still didn't know the Alma-Mater
all the way through, and would open our
mouths wide when it was played, trying to look
as if we were singing lustily. That year we
attended our first excursion, and the more ad-
venturous of us hung over the rails watching
the water, then dashed back to the deck-chairs
-hoping. Two of our seventh graders won
the Iunior High Prize Speaking contest, Tom
McCracken and Elinor Yaguda, and every-
thing ended in a rosy glow as we attended our
Back to school as eighth graders, and didn't
the new seventh graders look small. We'd
started skipping gym already, and learned to
slip through the tunnel to get to the Annex.
What a mad race trying to get the nickel in
the coke machine before the sign went up.
By the way, that was the year we were lectured
long and earnestly on the evils of coke, but
it didn't seem to do much good, bewildered
teachers discovered us drinking it at nine
o'clock in the morning.
Games in the locker
room were stimulating,
such as the time Miss
Hayes caught the girls
She entered just as Mari-
lyn Bates was shouting,
H1-2-3-O11 Miss Hayes!"
Were our faces red! ,The
boat races were inaugu-
rated and Al Bingham
and Bob Beckett were
That was the year we had the twenty-minute
lunch period, and had two A. Ifs in the class-
A. Ferguson and A. Rockenstyre. Evi-
dently the coincidence made things chummy
because they started going out together. About
this time our artistic instincts emerged and we
decorated the English Room with self-designed
plaques, and the following year did the Art
The outstanding event of the year was jimmy
McClure and Harold Dodge's swallowing live
goldfish. For weeks we watched them intently,
expecting them to collapse at any minute.
In our Freshman year we went out for cheer-
leading and yelled enthusiastically at the pep-
rallies. Arden Flint was president of Iunior
High and we were pretty important as the top
grade in Iunior High. That was also the year
we started applying lipstick in the locker-room
and covertly rubbing it off again after school.
Iohn Prince learned how to horrify most of his
teachers by simply dropping his two front teeth
in the midst of conversation, and he carried
around a wired brief case that really shocked
any curious pedagogues.
Dr. Moose introduced us to the experience
of dissecting fish, and for two weeks we wcnt
around holding our noses. At this point some
of us decided not to become great surgeons.
Contrary to previous harmony thc famous
feud between the boys and the girls was started.
When the dance ftheme was a Merry-Go-
Round and horses were prancing all over the
wallsj rolled around the boys took eighth
the proud winners.
graders, and our girls showed up en masse-
with each other.
Sophomore year opened with a bang. Doug
Drake escorted Sue Hoyt to a movie-and look
at the results! Soph girls stood shivering out-
side the Lounge, trying to remember all the
things they had heard about initiations, while
the on-looking ninth graders snickered. The
boys, red-faced and embarrassed, ate compul-
sory lunches with the girls, and for two weeks
after initiation sat down gingerly. At last we
were proud members of societies, with small
pins on our blouses and sweaters. The high-
light of the year was the new printed paper.
We could hardly believe that the faded, mim-
eographed paper of the past was ours. The
last Christmas plays were that year, and we
were given the much sought after half-hour
lunch period. Milne girls were introduced to
Valentino at the old-fashioned movies, and
Norma Silverstein promptly renounced all of
her former favorites. Two "first" dances were
that year-the Alumni Ball, and our first
Q.T.S.A. The graduates looked a little strange
and familiar to us at the Alumni Ball, and
everybody's coats got mixed up afterwards.
Lunches were eaten in the park that Spring.
The boys played ball, and the girls got their
legs sunburned while throwing pebbles in the
water from the bridge. Kenny Gallien startled
us all by becoming an uncle for the second
time right in the middle of Latin Class.
Iunior year teeined with activity. Dutch Ball
was elected president of Phi Sigma, and we
had our first class meeting with Paul Distel-
hurst as president. We were all filled with the
importance of parlimentary procedure, and
everyone seemed to think himself an authority.
Felita Schain and George Edick say their
memorable duet in assembly, and we dis-
covered that we had talent in our midst. Bill
Parr left for the Army and we all missed his
good natured smile, and his notes in Arabic that
the teachers couldn't read fand we couldn't
eitherj. Bill Clerk discovered surrealism and
the rest of us just gaped in amazement. In
the middle of the year we got back at the
Freshmen who had snickered at us when we
were undergoing initiations. Did we snicker
this time! Parties were the fad and there were
many. Ioyce Knapp's Halloween party fMrs.
Knapp kept walking in to find the place in
darknessj and Angela's weekend parties at
Chatham feverybody looked a little haggard
on Monday morningl, and Hen Parties every
week. The Iunior Bags, as we dubbed our-
selves, gathered at various houses to drink coke
and discuss such lofty topics as MEN. Frances
Morah had a party at camp, and Chuck Hop-
kins drank a bottle of turpentine, thinking it
was-well, something else.
Every afternoon found us in Wagar's order-
ing coffee sodas, and Ruth Porth still didn't
know what a vitamin was. Boys and girls took
gym on the same day and there was a fierce
and never ending battle as to who could have
the field. The result was a confusing mixture
of football and hockey played together. We
got our long awaited class rings, and elections
were held for Student Council. At last we
prepared to step into the Senior's shoes.
The beginning of our Senior year was mem-
orable for more reasons than one, The Senior
Room, No Senior Room, The Senior Room,
No Senior Room, and that was the way it
finally ended. Will we ever forget Ioanne
Scott's expression when she was being meas-
ured for her cap and gown, or the false fire
place, or Inez Warshaw's Varga calendar?
Several of our Senior boys left for the service,
and one got married. The girls began using
V-mail, and the boys began talking of V-12
exams. Mr. Allard got married, and George
Myers beat his own path to the Circle door.
Elinor Yaguda discovered Danny Kaye, and
Bert Friedman discovered shoulders, Bill Baker
jumped to six feet four, and earned the nick-
name of "Drink." Proofs from Gustave Lorey
were floating around, and we discovered a re-
markable resemblance between Bruce Hansen
and Frank Sinatra! Committees were being
formed for Graduation and Class Night, and
we held our first girls' gym night in the audi-
torium. Conventions were held with "Bricks
and Ivy" and "Crimson and White," members
attending meetings in New York.
Tom Dyer found himself the only boy in
every one of his classes. Louie Austin fell

lust after 'llianksgiying vacation, Quin held its Annual Rush in the
Lounge, on November zgrd. "Pistol Packin' Mama" was the theme of the
ciitertaimncnt program with "Baggy" XVeinberg doing a neat job as "Pistol
l'ackin' Mama". lt turned out to be a humorous one, too, and all in all
the girls of this chorus and other characters in the show had lots of fun.
XYc all turned out on a very wintry day for the traditional initiation.
which was held in style at the College Lounge on February 24th. Many of
the girls were so frightened that it was rmnored they could be heard scream-
ing on the third floor. From the sound of their shrieks they must have been

with a candlelight ceremony and the girls' faces were quite serious through
the bright gleam of the candles. But when the ceremony was oyer, the un-

buzz of chatter and laughter. At the tea the Sophomores received their long-
awaited pins and carnations.

Again an Alumni Ball was held at Christmas time. Soldiers, sailors,
and marines crowded out the civilians by quite a margin.
Senior high parties were spotted throughout the year to provide plenty
of entertainment for the school.
'l'he animal card party proved to be a huge success. The money
raised went toward the Library mural fund and the library now boasts
a complete set of paintings on the development of Albany by David
The event which all Milne awaits during the year came in the closing
weeks. This even-t is the selection of next year's Student Council
Last but not least was the awarding of proficiency medals to the best
students on graduation night.
IUNIOR STUDENT COUNCIL started this year off by welcoming the new
seventh graders to Milne with a dance which was held on October ninth.
After that the council really got down to work under the capable
leadership of Derwent Angier. The officers of the council for this year
were: Derwent Angier, president: Donald Iarrett, vice-presidentg Mabel
Martin. secretary: Ioan Clark, treasurer.
The council appointed a lunch committee of ninth graders to look
after the cafeteria. This committee did an excellent job in restoring
and keeping order in thc cafeteria. Their job was so good that nobody
could say that the Iunior I-ligh School did not leave the cafeteria clean
after they had used it. The lunch committee consists of the following
people: Tom Borthwick, chairmang Grant Talbot, Fred Denton, and
At a request from Dr. Edward L. Cooper, head of the Commerce
Department, the council appointed the following committee of eighth
grade boys to handle the flag displayed on Washington Avenue with
due ceremony before and after school: Terry Townsend, lack C-lavin,
and Ben Mendel, Boy Scouts.
The dance sponsored by the council on December eleventh turned
out so well that it was commented on by both the students and the
faculty. On February 18 the council sponsored a sport dance. At this
dance Coca-Cola was served for the Hrst time this year. The coke went
fast, to say the least.
After looking things over the council decided that the school
needed some improvements. The students were asked for suggestions
and appointed the following committee to start a campaign for im-
provements: Tristam Coffin, chairinang Indy Hunting, Susie Camp, and
Bob Clark. Cnc of the things that thc committee looked into was
a clock for the "little gym."

UNDER rm: DIRECTION of Monsieur VV. P. Allard and Miss Betty Harper
of State College, Le Cercle Francais was organized in mid-first semester.
VVe elected our oltieers and discussed plans for our year's work. During
the first semester we conyersed quite painfully in French, but we always
managed to get our ideas across. We sang French songs and played
French games. Toward the end of the semester we studied opera. Mem-
bers looked up material and pictures on the opera, and Monsieur Allard
furnished the records. Liked most was "Carmen,"
This year as a new addition to the routine of the French Club was
the eating together of the club members on Wednesdays. Conversation
could be only in French, a job especially when one's mouth was full.
Well, anyway, that added to the accents.
Looking back over the year we feel that we have learned a great
deal and supplemented our French classwork. Looking ahead to next
year's Cercle Francais, nous disons, "Bon Chance."

THE IUNIOR RED CROSS stands for more this year than any other in its history. A part
of the important job towards the furthering of the war effort has been done under thc
supervision of the Senior Red Cross.
Since the beginning of this year the students of the Milne School have co-operatively
given their time and effort to accomplish what we have.
VVe began with our annual roll call which included every homeroom one hundred
per cent. In October we sent Christmas tray decorations to American army camps over
seas. 'l'he art students provided many colorful menu covers for the boys
in the Navy at this time. VVith the help of the Red Cross Motor Corps
we delivered food baskets to eighteen of the poor families in Albany.
Doing this made Christmas a little more cheerful for the less fortunate.
After the holiday season, we started working on utility bags, card table
covers, pillow cases, slippers for the wounded men, and other little
things to help in what way we could the service men who are conhned
to hospital beds. A collection of adult games was also taken.
A special plea was made for old sweaters to be reknitted by the
Salvation Army and toys for the Howe Library, which lends toys to
children in the same way as other libraries lend books. Both of these
pleas were fulfilled.
XVhat we have done is small comparatively, but we have helped a
little bit in the need of others.

plans for tl1e Lllllllllll lliAY carnival. Un a warni 'l'lll1fSCl2lf' 11igl1t in
tl1e Spring tl1e Milne School was all lighted up-the reason being
thc carnival. Boys from all grades participated in tumbling, tricks on

too. 'l'heta Nu Llllfl .Xdelphoi renewed their annual basketball game.

tlared skirts of crimson and white sweaters, were eaptained bv lean
Dorsev. lean worked hard with the girls in striving to have diiferent
and unusual wavs of presenting "ve olde Millie cheers." Take. for
instance, the "Vietorv" cheer with its seven variations. The varia-
tions depend on the occasion and the number of girls present. The
jumps used in the cheers were all eo-ordinated well and used to liven
up the cheers. Noted was the jump used for the cheer that starts
t'Drop 'em far, Drop 'em near."
Each XVednesdav the echoes were heard resounding through the
halls as the girls limhered up for the weekend games. After the
games the glamorous gals were hoarse, hut happv. New cheers were
worked on, old vear's cheers remodeled and still the same old stand-
hvs such as the 'FlGl'lT cheer. or the TEAM cheer were used. The
hililne spirit, of which there is plentv. is reflected in these girls who
go out on the floor and help lead the hovs to victory.

VVic IN 'ring IUNIOR CLASS now realize that we have but one short year
left in Milne before we are obliged to break many dear friendships and
make our own way in the world.
For the first time this year we organized as a class and under the
able leadership of President Ted Carlson we managed very well.
Although this year a few familiar faces have been missing-john Mosher
has left and is now in the Navy, and a few of the feminine half have
gone to different schools.
'l'hree of our boys made the Varsity basketball team this year.
'l'hey were Lee Aronowitz, lim Detwiler and Ed Muehleck. lim was
out the major part of the season with an appeudectoniy, but we all
know he'll be back, playing better than ever, when the next basketball
season rolls around. Lee Aronowitz made us all proud by being named
on the A'All Albany" team.
'l'he "Solid South" of one of the Iunior history classes provided a
lot of the humor this year, and Dr. Moose's remarks to the Physics
students made up for the rest. Many of our girls were seen at various
times of the year with boys in uniform and it looked as if Navy blue
The Iunior boys and girls in the societies tried their hand at initia-
tions and their revenge was sweet on the poor Sophs.
Taking all into consideration, it seemed like a pretty grand year
and we all look forward with eager anticipation to next year and the
hope of becoming the best Senior class ever to graduate from Milne.
AFTER A GAY SUMMER, the Class of '46 trudged back to begin another
year. We were all overjoyed at the prospect of belonging in Senior
High at last.
Most of the fellows and girls had found new heart-throbs and
Frankie Bellville had grown an inch. In October a football game in
Menands left the girls ragged and ruined. The boys repeated their
warning-"A woman's place is in the grandstandf' At the annual Senior
High reception we were formally welcomed into Senior High. Every-
one who- was at the dance had a grand time. In November the girls
received their invitations to the society rush functions. The snow
brought tobogganing and skiing. None of us will forget Larry Clarkc's
tobogganing party and the playroom in Bill Newton's third floor.
In December our V., made up mostly of Sophomores, won its
first game, and throughout the year continued to make the school proud
of them. The Alumni Dance made us feel quite sophisticated. Our
class was well represented, and a wonderful time was had by all.
As the new year began, so did our worries concerning mid-years.
And were we tearful about losing Mr. McFeeley! Chuck Terry and
Don Christie were such good players on the V. that they were trans-
ferred to the varsity. Chuck had a dinner party to celebrate and every-
one agreed it was a swell affair. Another dinner party at lean Pirnie's
followed. The Sophomore boys in all their glory did the dishes-
February brought us our first class meeting and we elected Dick
Grace president. We discussed thoroughly, but never quietly, the
weekly dues question and settled it. The girls were initiated and such
creatures our halls have never known! Still, we'll have our fun next year
on the new Sophoinores.
In March, the boys' turn came, and the initiations were really
something. Standing was preferable to sitting in almost every instance.

SENT TO MILNE oUT OF HEAVEN, the "Class of
Forty-Seven" filled the year of forty-four with
activities galore, Snappy personality made it
plain for all to see in these children of today,
tomorrow's Milne, strong and gay.
Politically inclined, it took little time to find
leaders all along the line. less Barnett from
three-two-nine with Grant Talbot from three-
three-six with Dick Hull made quite a mix of
high-class room presidents. Backed by many
gals and gents, they gave, with trumpets blar-
ing, the best administration in either school or
All the teachers loved this class as from room
to room they'd pass with dignity and decorum
to aid each teacher's forum.
Socially the class was tops with parties being
their biggest crops. As actors in the drama,
they staged a panorama acclaimedby all the
critics as entertaining antics filled with talent
rare and fine that accented every line.
In sports they were not backward, basketballs
off the back-board, hockey balls and sticks off
shins made boys and girls take hard spins.
Their history in forty-four brought forty-
seven to the fore. As Milne's School's popular
Starlet, their president, Don Iarrett, proudly led
them through the year always riding in high
gear and so they now move onward, aspiring
always upward, we're 'lin the groove" for keeps
now! "Giddap Milne" we'll show you how.
BANG! ! ! 'l'he eighth graders are in again. You might call us the "in betweensf'
because we aren't the little seventh graders any more, nor are we the big Freshman.
'l'his doesn't bother us any for we have found our place in the Millie activities.
Our homeroom presidents were Clmck Liddle, Billy Farnan, and Sherwood
Kerker. VVe supported the Red Cross and had Bill Lucas, Catherine Bacon and
Geraldine Bearup represent us on the Red Cross Council.
Out of the English class money that we contributed, we used Sizg to buy
books for the library. For the remainder of the school year the books were used
by only the Class of '48, Next year we present tliese books to the library for
ln llome Economics the girls designed CllfC animals, and with the aid of
cloth and cotton the rabbits, elephants, and cats came into form.
livery Thursday and Friday Ilomeroom 126 welcomed checker players to their
tournaments. 'l'hese were exciting and something a little dilferent in our routine.
All the kids used their previous skill to whip the stuftings out of the seventh
graders in basketball and baseball. In the beautiful sunshine after school we
slammed those balls out to Western Avenue for a homer or two.
Don't think that we didn't get our dances and parties in this year too because
we had more fun this year than last year.
HERE WE ARE! At last we can say we go to Milne. We, from the seventh grade,
have had an exciting time and now are settled down to the way of life in Milne.
The first few weeks we spent here were a little confusing and will always remain
in our minds. Worst of all was being told "VVrong stairs," and 'AHey, girlie, get
out of the boys' locker room!"
After a few days of getting acquainted with each other, we elected homeroom
officers. The presidents turned out to be Jerry Trimble, Philip Davey, and Peter
One of our happy gang had a Halloween party which will go down in the
history of the Class of '49. We won't forget the dancing Qwe learned how in the
dancing clubl, the games which we didn't learn in the game club, the fortune
telling, and boy, oh boy, that cider and the doughnuts.
For the first time we played basketball and loved it. The boys felt pretty inde-
pendent in the big gym with a "coach" instead of a 'Agym teacher." Bill Kennedy
and Al Iones were the stars of the boys' teams, and Nancy McMann and Ioan
Austin proved athletic among the girls.
Remember Homeroom 12Q,S club? We found time for puzzles, decoding, and
Pete Ball's jokes. Some people said this was a waste of time, but we were happy.
Has anyone discovered where Ioe Sabot buys gum by the pound?
Our first year has been fun and exciting to say the least. Now just think-next
year we won't be the babies of the school! ! !

Composition and poetry open avenues of

to take our place, in the connnunity, the
country, and a globe-conscious world.

ILNE CHANGES in many ways, but the Art Room is always the same. The
old gang of '43 consider the Art Room their alma mater and are con-
stantly interrupting the serenity of Miss Martin's classes. They proudly
ask her to examine new engagement rings, new medals, new uniforms and new
heart throbs. Along with zooty vegetables for the girl's gym night and handsome
war posters, we managed to win some gold keys. Luba Goldberg, Iean F igarsky,
Lois Messent, Betty Baskin, and Frances Kirk all received these trophies for their
oil painting, craftwork and ceramic pieces. Bill Clerk had three paintings accepted
for the New York Surrealistic Gallery. Charles Kosbob took time off from the
Navy to do a little teaching in the Mechanical Drawing Class.
Boys and girls are in and out of the Art Room a million times a day. Out of
this room fand with the help of Miss Martinj comes beauty, noise, and plenty of
down to earth spirit. We say, "LONG LIVE THE ART ROOM!"
