CONN. Class Foam The life we have known is ending tonight, A new era commences at dawn: The first act of the play that we're living is o'er, And the curtain is now being drawn. This is no time to reflect on the past, On what was, or what could have been Without even a pause we must hurry on, The next act is about to begin. We have been well-rehearsed for the parts we're to play, We should have little to fearg But we're novices still, and the setting is strange, Now that we're actually here. We step courageously onto the stage, Full of hope, our heads held high, Determined to work, to become a success, Determined, at least, to try.

Class Hlslforq One early September morning in the year 1938, thirty- 'three little children, with blank expressions on their faces, gazed up at the kind face of Mrs. Nichols. With this bright day we began the first of our twelve years at Nathan Hale. The roll call this year was as follows! Rita Banchik, Herb Baron, Ronnie Bernstein, Dorothy Blas- chik, Eleanor Bloch, Barbara Bragdon, Fred Boccardo, Faith Dichter, Joseph Drenga, Donald Friedman, Ann Gat6S, Waltv er Golet,Dorothy Graf, Lorraine Hordes, Thomas Horsefield, Franklin Hotyckey, Frank Johnson, Helen Kmitek, Ernest Lechner, William Manee, Joan McMullen, Jackie Ray, Theresa Shea, Gene Soja, Marian Sternlieb, Leonard Swan, and Clif- ford Walden. During this year we were quite lively and we were 'always in some mischief. We could usually be found standing in line in preparation for our walk to the prin- cipal's office. For some reason or other, we got iust half way over and then were given another chance to prove that we left us Kmietek. In Besides had fun and many arguments. I think Joan McMullen remember her hair pulling fights with all the girls this year we met Walter Kostoss and Edward Goff and Fred Boccordo, Faith Dichter, Donnie Friedman, Jackie and Marian Sternlieb. We entered third grade with a much smaller class could be good. In that year, three of our members . They were Rita Banchik, Dorothy Graf, and Helen our second year we were greeted by Mrs. Thomas. learning arithmetic and how to read and write, we will In lost Rays than we had started with. Mrs. Graham, now Mrs. Peck, taught correct penmanship along with our other studies. Judging from some of our handwriting, most of us were asleep dur- ing our penmanship classes. In this year we lost Lorraine Hordes, but we gained, four new members, Barbara Knight, Ernest VanCedarfield, Estelle Mager, and Norman Boardman. In our fourth year we learned a great deal about an- other subject, nature, from Mrs. Bohn. We lost William Manee, but gained Jeanne Arnold, Charles Dickinson, Rose DeCarlo, Nancy Baskin, Richard Cornwall, Julius Schwab, Olin Usher, and Anna Minnock. During this year we also had many amusing experiences. One of these was when Nor- man Boardman was dowsed by a can of blue paint when Elean- or Bloch chased him around the room. The next year was our fifth. We were met by Mrs. Ban- ner who taught us social studies. It was in this year that we learned much about our country. During the year, the class made a scrapbook which, alas, was burned in a ' 19 Class Hislorq fire at ,the supervisor's office. Two new members joined us, Dorothy Forester and Robert Hosking. Sixth grade at lastl The half way mark! we were met by Miss Kaminski, now Mrs. John Shanaghan. Norma Campbell joined our class this year. We all learned to draw and make linoleum blocks. We were now ready to take the im- portant step into Junior High School. Junior High at last! We entered the seventh grade feeling quite grown-up and we all had a very independent attitude. We were soon quieted by our homeroom teacher, Mrs. MacDermott. In that year we gained one new member, Milton Mager and lost Charlie Dickinson, Nancy Baskin, Ann Gates, and Dorothy Forester. We deeply regret the news of Dorothy's death due to an accident. The next year was our eighth and Mr. Selvi tried to teach us a little about for- eign languages. This was also the year when we planned our courses for high school. This year we lost Milton Mager, Ernest VanCedarfield, and Olin Usher. Freshman Yearl Now was the time to plan our courses according to what we wished to do upon leaving high school Coach Ted Janiga was our homeroom teacher. Sid Daniels, Ann Shugrue, Dick Spencer, and Bob Tilden joined us this year, while we lost Clifford Walden, Leonard Swan, Jeanne Arnold, 'Barbara Knight, Walter Kostoss, and Edward Goff. Our class officers for our first year in high were: Pres- ident, George Geerg Vice President, Tom Horsefieldg Sec- retary, Prank Johnsong Treasurer,.Norman Boardman, Council Members, Rose DeCarlo and Franklin Hotyckey. By this time our class had the reputation of being the noisiest class in the school. This was the year for us to be initiated. The girls wore dungarees, men's pajamas and carried books in yburlap bags. The boys wore dresses, make-up and wom- en's stockings. Some of us did not like this treatment but we would soon have our chance for revenge. Now that all-important Sophomore year was upon us. Under the competent guidance of Mrs. Smith, we chose our class colors, red and white: our class flower, white roseg and our motto: nwhat You Are To BS, You Are Now Becoming.n We elected the following officers: President, Ann Shugrue, Vice President, George Geerg Secretary, Theresa Shea, TPGHSUPSP, Frank Johnson, and Council Members, Eleanor Bloch and Steven Shumbo. This was the year Dick Cornwall and Ulie Nygren had a compass throwing tournament and we were all wondreing how the erasers got into the goldfish bowl. This year we held our first big event, the SophcL 20 Class Hisiorq more Hoo. The auditorium was decorated in red and white. Due to bad weather, the dance was postponed for one night but it was still the best nhopn ever held in this school. Our class was decreased this year by the loss of Sid Dan- iels and Rose DeCarlo while but one person, Ulie Nygren joined us. We entered our Junior year with Miss Arnold, now Mrs. Kabara, as our homeroom teacher. We commenced by electing our class officers: President, George Geer, Vice Presi- dent, Joe, Drenga, Secretary, Theresa Shea, Treasurer, Mel- vin Mitteldorf, Council Members, Dorothy Blaschik and Er- nest Lechner. We held our Junior Prom which was a great success. We think we had the largest attendance in years. The auditorium was decorated with pastel crepe paper. This was also our chance to initiate the Freshman Class. We almost didn't have an initiation because of the thorough job done by the class before us. In our Junior year we lost Dick Cornwall and Melvin Mitteldorf. Ann Shugrue be- came treasurer when Melvin left. At long last we entered the 'senior year under the guidance of Mr. Kozak. We elected the following officers: President, George Ceer, Vice President, Frank Johnson, Secretary, Theresa Shea, Treasurer, Ann Shugrue, and Coun- cil Members, Eleanor Bloch and Walter Golet. We immedi- ately began to raise money for our class trip by selling cards, giving dinners, and the play NMy Sister Eileen. This year we lost Tom Horsefield. On April 214, we left for Washington, D. C. to spend four days on our long-awaited class trip. Our chaperones were Miss Geber and Mr. Shoag. The trip was enjoyed by everyone and we will especially remember the tiring climb up the steps of the Washington Monument. We also observed many of the important buildings such as the Capitol, Ann- apolis, Maryland, U. S. Naval Academy, U. S. Supreme Court, Bureau of Printing and Engraving, Pan-Amerkmn Union, Acad- emy of Science, the Congressional Library, Lincoln Memor- ial and Jefferson Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery and Mt. Vernon, Virginia. After tonight a new world is opened to us. For some of us it will be college, for others it will be work in some field we like. We now will leave our school, to en- ter the world of adults. CICISS Prcphenq Ellen Klosowicz Joseph Drenga HThis is Joe Drenga on 'Take It Or Leave Itl' Our last contestant just won 36h, and now here comes our next contestant up to the microphone, and she looks very fam- iliar. What is your name, please?H nEllen Klosowiczn. nNot the Ellen Klosowicz from Moodus, Connecticut and the Nathan Hale-Ray High School, Class of 1950? NOne and the same.n HI hope you'll excuse me for not recognizing you Ellen, but you have changed since we last saw each other.n nYou have too, Joe, but that's understandable for it was at our graduation, over five years ago, that we last met. nls it that long? Five years? It seems like only yesterday. And what are you doing, Ellen?n nI'm employed as a secretary by American Airlines.n nAnd do you like your job?n nVery much. It's a good job?n nThat's fine. You know it's been so long since I last saw you that I'm going to give you 36h and spend the next ten minutes talking with you about our ex-classmates. Is that all right with you?N nPerfectly.n After all, all they can do is fire me. And what have you heard of our former classmates?n 'Quite a bit, Joe. You see, I'm just returning to my job from a two weeks'vacation back home and I did a little checking on how our classmates of five years back are doing.n nAnd I'll bet they're doing fine.n HThey really are. As a matter of fact, four of the girls from our graduating class now have regular teaching jobs at high schools in New England.n .nThat's very good to hear Ellen and the four are--?n nDorothy Blaschik, Theresa Shea, Eleanor Bloch, and Barbara Bragdon.n our out of twenty. If my memory serves me right, that means one-fifth of our class is right back where they Were five Years afO. in high school.n Nles, they are, but now they're collecting papers instead of handing them in, and probably glad of it.n nl know that Estelle is working as a stenographer and typist in New Britain, Connecticut, but I'm afraid I have- n't heard anything of Dot, Terry, Eleanor, or Barbara.n nWell, Dot is teaching in Hartford. Terry and El- YI ll F 22 Class Prophecu eanor are both teaching commercial subjects--Terry at a high school in Massachusetts and Eleanor at a school in New London, Connecticut.n nAnd Barbara? Didn't she plan to be a girls' physi- cal education instructor?n nYes, she did, Joe, and she is, at a Vermont high school. I saw her a few months ago, and she told me they have a very nice softball field for the girls, at the school there.N HI hope the school has a good supply of softballs, because when Barbara starts showing the girls how, she will probably hit the balls so far they will never see them again.n uShe can really hit, can't she?n nShe certainly can. And speaking of being able to hit,n Sonny Golet has been playing good ball with the Red Sox. I UYes, he has.' He's hitting over .BMO and the season is just half over. They tell me he may get the nRookie of the Yearn award for the good ball he has been playing since the Sox put him at second base.n nHave you seen anything of Norman Boardman?n HYes, I saw him on my vacation. He is a head sales- man for an insurance company, and has a beautiful 1955 yellow Buick convertible.n UI'll bet he makes a good salesman.n NI'll say he does. I spoke to him for only fifteen minutes and he sold me a policy. By the way, Joe, how long has it been since you were home Iast?N nOver three years, why?n Nwell, you have a surprise coming when you do get home. You know Bernstein's Plumbing Shop? Well, Ronnie and his father have converted it into a factory producing plumbing parts.u WThat sounds good. Did you see Ronnie?H UNO, at the time of my vacation he was in Chicago discussing a contract with a plumbing concern.n VIf I know Ronnie, he'll get the contract.n nRonnie's father showed me a letter Ronnie received from Erny Lechner.n NI hear Erny likes the Coast Guard.u nSo he says in his letters.n I got a letter from Gene Soja two days ago.n nGene has been making quite a name for himself and do ing illustrations for the Saturday Evening Post.n HCritics say he'll go a long way in art.n nGeorge Geer had a good year with the New York Knick- N 23 Class Prophccq erbockers basketball team.H nwell, fairly good. Poor George, he only averaged 27 points a game.n UMaybe he'll do better next year.n nMaybe. They tell me Anna Minnock is head nurse at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Mary1and.H nYes, she is. Did you know that Ann Shugrue is at Johns Hopkins also? She is on the staff there.n nIt's nice to know that Ann and Anna are still to- gether. They were almost inseparable in school.n By the way,have you heard anything of Frank Johnson, Billy Heidtmann or Franklyn Hotyckey?n HI saw Frank just two weeks ago. He was in New Ybrk ordering some farm machinery. You see, Franklyn, Billy, and Frank pooled what money they were able to make in the last four years and bought a fifteen hundred acre farm in Kansas. xThey always planned to farm for a career, didn't they? nYes, and Frank said this is what they had always wanted.n HI know they'll make good.n HI see by the papers that Dick Spencer is bringing his three-ring circus into Madison Square Garden here in New York.n nDick has been touring the United States for quite some time. He did a great job of building his carnival into a circus. He has a great show and is in constant de- mand in every state.n NHave you heard anything of Joan McMullen? The last I heard she was doing further studying in chemistry.H uJoan has worked her way to the point where she is now a chemist in the laboratory for the Rexall Corporation NKnowing Joan's ability in chemistry, I don't think the Rexall Corporation will have to worry about her blow- ing up the place.u nI'm sure they won't.n nWe1l,I see by our studio clock that I have only five minutes more on the air and we still have a commercial to o. II nlt has really been fun talking with you about our old classmates Joe.n EI enjoyed it, Ellen, and I want to thank you very much. xThank you, Joe, and I hope we will meet again, very Soono USO-do I, Ellen. Good night.n 24 QHST WILL Qu TESTHMENT The Class of 1950 of the Nathan Hale-Ray School in Moodus, Connecticut, being of sound mind, have called you together upon this special occasion to listen to our Last Will and Testament. To our Principal and members of the faculty we leave our many thanks for the splendid guidance given us and the hope for a more cooperative group of students next year. We bequeath to the Junior Class the honor of being seniors, and give all the responsibilities, privileges, and distinctions which we have heretofore enjoyed. Eleanor Blochlhaves her freckles to Martha Horsefield whofhas the magic formula for that school-girl complexion. George Geer wills his height to Franklyn Ziobron and to some capable junior the job of- the presidency of the Senior Class. Estelle Mager leaves her interest in baseball games to George Erenga. We sometimes wonder if her interest is in the game or in the players. Gene Soja leaves his art ability to his brother. Don't spend all your time drawing, Bobby. Ellen Klosowicz, who is thriHed to be through, leaves nWaltu, her constant attendant, but we ask, to whom? Myron Bernstein wills his Buick to Mr. Cady. Nice trade, aye, Mr. Cady? Ann Shugrue, after careful consideration, wills that all her superior marks be divided among any underclassman who feel they need them.

On the left foot was worn a per and on the right foot, a hip boot. Sticking in their ears were Kleenex. All the boys were required to carry a lunch box with cookies, candy and other sweets. The girls were divided into two groups. The first group had to wear a costume of a little boy on his first day at school,which consisted of short pants, short sleeve shirt, men's working shoes, and a big bow tie around their neck. They had to carry big lollipops and talk baby talk. The second group had to wear the costume of a girl in the nGay Nineties,n which consisted of a long, old dress with a ribbon sash worn as a low waisted belt, carry an umbrella opened as a parasol, wear a great deal of costume jewelry and men's work shoes. All girls had to wear dark sunglasses, no make-up, carry an unlit candle and wear their hair the usual way. The girls had to have an extra large comb and when they saw a junior they had to comb their hair over their faces and say, HI am the first lady of the land. I have the right to wear my hair over my face.n George Drenga and Theresa Sypega were chosen nMiss and Mr. Nathan Hale of l953.u That night at the Freshman Reception, George Drenga and Theresa Sypega gave speeches on why all freshmen like the Ugreat Juniors.n -Herman Moeller- in their hair perfume.

The class officers CSally Gelston, Wiley Valley, Mar- tha Horsefield, Gerry Roelantsb led the couples in the Grand March. The record crowd danced to music by "Miles Booth and His Serenadersn under a sky of red and white crepe paper and was served punch and copkies during intermission. The patrons and patronesses for the evening were Mrs. MacDermott, Mrs. Valley, Mrs. Gelston and Mr. and Mra Blanchard. Another high light of the Sophomore year was the long awaited purchasing of class rings. After much discussion and controversy, the class decided on a square shaped ring. The class had their preferences as to size of square and type of stone. -Sally Gelston- 36 Q , C5 'Wi ct: ef IUNIOR CLASS In October of 19h8, the present Junior Class was in- itiated by the Class of 'LQ with such enthusiasm that no one believed that there would ever be another initiationl In November, 19n8, we, now being Sophomores, chose our class rings. Then a little later, with some difficulty D we chose our motto, nln Ourselves Our Future Liesn' our floger, the carnationg and our class colors of green and go . To be different, as this class is known to be, our decorations for the annual nhopn were not the usual crepe paper style but gave the effect of a ncity skyline at night,n and as it stated in the local paper the following night, Uthose who attended, danced under a sky of brill- iant stars.H Henry Miller,leader of our orchestra for the evening, was a good musician, but it seemed that the skyline gave him aid his orchestra the feeling of being closed in and in need of the fresh air away from the city, for instead I of playing for a goes, He played still had a good Now here we to go--this year half hour and utaking ten as the saying ten and took the half hour. Oh well, we Hhop HL are Juniors, with only a year and a half we had quite an initiation for the Class of '53 and our reception--we can't boast, but we may say that we ho a everyone had as much fun as the Juniors and Freshmen did! Now we are making plans for our Prom, and as usual, they are going to be quite different,and we believe a suc- cessful affairlis inevitable. But enough about us! We, the Class of '51 want to ex' press our sincerest best wishes to the Class of 1950- ' 37 -Ruth Zeleny- r NND S 4ugfg,m.

Comprised of a number of fine players and supported by a host of able reserves,the team, under the experienced supervision of Coach Barney Levine, was strong in defeat as well as in victory. It possessed a strong defensive infield and had about the fleetest trio of outfielders in its league. At the plate, the team showed a powerful array of hitters. These hitters plus the outfield and infield combined with the Ein? battery produced a smooth-running team that was hard o ea . There was little doubt in the strength of the team when you considered its record. Starting off on the wrong foot, Hale-Ray lost their initial contest to Durham, 7-2. After losing the first, the team bounced to win four straight, downing Old Lyme, 9-S3 Morgan, 7-35 Chester, 8-23 and Essex, 17-12. The two games were heart-breaking defeats, to Deep River, 2-1 and to Guilford, 3-2. However, snapping out of the losing column the boys went on to win the remaining four games, Madison 15-O3 Saybrook 12-13 Colchester 8-7 aid Portland 7-5. 46 ??A:'AfQ2EQQ?? fiiwwaiggi H Q55 K?
