Our school years can be compared to a string of pearls.
On our first day in school there was nothing but the string itself,
Strong and sturdy, ready to bear upon it the I2 pearls, which were
To represent our I2 grades.
Slowly, one by one, the pearls were added, each significant.
Not all-were white with laughter and confidence.
Some were gray with fear and trouble,
But each one held friendship and guidance.
Each has taught us to be prepared for the challenge which awaits us
And now, tonight, the last pearl has solemnly been added.
It is shaded with gray, for there is fear of what is ahead,
But waitl the gray has disappeared and in that pearl we see
Hope, light, and faith, which has come to us through each strong
And now the string is tied.
We shall carry these pearls with us always,
And in the years to come, wherever we may be,
We shall look upon them, and know that this string
Of twelve pearls has made us what we are today.
Nathan Hale, our Alma Mater,
We thy students proudly raise
This our song of true devotion,
This our song of grateful praise.
Knowledge gained within thy walls
Ever our true guide will be.
Many hours of earnest study,
Friendship, and joy have we spent in thee
Hail to thee, proud Alma Mater,
Fondest mem'ries in thee lie.
We salute thee Alma Mater
May thy spirit never die.
May thy fame grow ever greater,
And thy glory e'er increase.
Nathan Hale we'll love thee alwaysg
Our praise of thee shall never cease.

It was a beautiful morning that day in September 1939 when we started our
first year in school. With Mrs. Nichols as our teacher we learned to read and write.
One of us at one time or another was talking and as a result somebody was always
being punished. The roll call was as follows: Jackie Adler, Edith Bartman, Virginia
Faircloth, Wanda Hall, Frances Kiley,Barbara Lesick, Caroline Manee, Edna Mc-
Neill, Audrey Stout, Ruth Zeleny, Herb Baron, Tom Goff, Charles Golet, Alan
Kiley, Bob Mitchell, Edward Rarus, Fred Reidinger, Bob Robida, Walt Urban, Teddy
Shumbo, and Bob Yindra.
We entered the second grade with Mrs. Thomas 'as our teacher. We had a
pleasant year. This year we met Joan Hitriz, Ann Jenckes, Mae Way, Gail Burdick,
and Elwin Rutty.
We were met in the third grade by Mrs. Graham, now Mrs. Peck. During the
year we learned arithmetic and geography. Because Walt Urban and Ruth Zeleny had
scarlet fever, our class was quarantined and we had a two week stay at home which
none of us regretted. We added to our growing class, Pryde Bean, Olin Usher, and
Donald Hobart. During the year Joan Hitriz, Carolyn Manee, and Mae Way left us.
In the fourth grade we struggled with our multiplication tables. Mrs. Bohn,
our teacher, taught us how to knit and we made a blanketz The surprising thing
about making it was that the boys knitted more than the girls. Mabel Pasquerell, the
DiBernaidi sisters, Florence Zirnmermium, and Walter Canfield joined us.
We entered the fifth grade with Mrs. Thurott, as our teacher. All through the
year we learned about the other countries and we also made individual scrap
books. This year, we added to our class, Julius Schwab. We lost Teddy Shumbo,
Eddie Rarus, Elwin Rutty, Olin Usher, and Donald Hobart. We also lost several
girls, the DiBernaidi sisters, and Florence Zimmermiurn.
In the sixth grade we learned about Mexico and other South American coun-
tries from Mrs. Shanaghan. This year we learned how to draw and made a big
mural. Now we were ready for our big step, our entrance into Junior High School.
At last, after six long years, we left the grade side and entered the seventh
grade. Mrs. MacDermott was our home room teacher, but due to illness, she had to
leave us. She was replaced by Mr. Graham under whose leadership we finished the
year. To the roll we added Paul Palmer, Joan Schur, and James Slahtosky. Herb
Baron left us to seek his fortune in California.
We moved on to the eighth grade where Miss Metzler greeted us. During the
year, Bob Anderson, Frank Morton, and Richard Usher were added to the class. We
lost James Slahtosky, Anna Jenckes, Mabel Pasquerell, and Gail Burdick. Nowwe
were ready for the goal of all students, High School.
In our first year of high school we were greeted by Mr. Janiga. Harry
Zoccoli, Jimmy Hill, Beatrice Lieber and Gloria Pendleton joined our class. The
year was marked by numerous chalk and eraser fights. We were initiated with the
usual lipstick, odd display in dress and continual obedience to the juniors. One of
our classmates, Alan Kiley, was thrown into the pond. After this display, initiations
stopped. Our class officers were as follows: President, Paul Palmerg Vice President,
Walt Urban: Secretary, Ruth Zelenyg Treasurer, Bob Mitchell.
We were greeted in the tenth grade by Mrs. MacDermott. The officers were:
President, Bob Mitchellg Vice President, Walt Urban: Secretary, Ruth Zeleny,
Treasurer, Paul Palmer. We put on our Sophomore Hop and it proved to be very
successful. We lost from our class Harry Zoccoli, Jimmy Hill, Tommy Goff and
We came to the junior year with Mrs. Kabara as our guide. We elected
Walter Urban, Presidentg Audrey Stout, Vice Presidentg Ruth Zeleny, Secretary,
Wanda Hall Treasurer. We started early and worked hard on our Junior Prom, which
turned out to be one of the best the school has ever had. Gail Burdick joined us once
again, and Walter Canfield and Gloria Pendleton left.
We finally reached the senior year with Mr. Kozak as our advisor. We
elected Bob Yindra, President: Charles Golet, Vice Presidentg Ruth Zeleny,
Secretaryg and Frances Kiley, Treasurer. Roger Snell and Herbert Baron joined us
while Gail Burdick left. We worked hard all through the year to raise money for our
Washington trip. By April we had enough money and on the sixteenth we left for
Washington with Mr. and Mrs. Bockstein as chaperones. We had an eventful trip,
and when we returned. we got back to things at state, but soon we had to prepare for
graduation, And here we are before you tonight waiting for our diplomas.

The most outstanding event in the Sophomore year, the annual "Hop", was
held on the I8 of November with an unusually large crowd attending. Patron and
patronesses were Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Bockstein, and Mr. and Mrs. Myron Collette.
The auditorium was brightly decorated with the class colors, red and white, and re-
sounded with the music of Miles Booth, and his orchestra.
In February all the Sophomores were seen with their new class rings of which
they were proud. There were a wide variety of choices as to the stone for the rings.
Each of the Sophomores seemed very pleased to be at last an official member of the
high school. The class wishes each Senior the best of luck in the future and success

The Freshman class was initiated into high school on Friday, Nov. 3, 1950 by the Juniors. The
initiation took place in the Nathan Hale basement.
Girls could be seen in men's dungarees and shirts both put on backwards. Others wore soccer
shorts and a baseball shirt. These girls had an attic on one foot and a soccer shoe on the other.
While some of the boys had to wear a high heel shoe and a boot, others wore bathrobes with
six balloons attached, Some were wearing grass skirts, and a frilly, off the shoulder blouse.
At night the weary class attended the Freshman Reception at which time they received diplomas.
Entertainment was furnished by the Juniors.
Another high light in the Freshman year was the winning of the annual magazine sale. James
Shea was the top salesman in the entire junior and senior high school.
The officers are as follows: President, Claire Gatesg Vice President, Alfred Fairclothg Secre-
tary, Isabelle Bartmang and Treasurer, Audrey McMullen.

The 1950 edition of the Hale-Ray soccer team ended a good season with a
record of six wins, and three ties. It ended with a record good enough for second
place in the SLlAC, a half a game out of first place. Three seniors, Rog Snell, Bob
Robida, and Charles Golet led the team. Windy Baker, Henry Pierson, Tony
Malinowski, Gene Dufrat, Tom Dombroski, Bill Hill, Harry Mitchell, Walter Urban,
and Jerry Roelants all helped to compile this good record.
The 1951 Hale-Ray five ended the year with five wins, and twelve losses.
The team consisted of three seniors, Bob Robida, Rog Snell, and Walt Urban, four
juniors, Henry Pierson, Jerry Roelants, Jimmy Hill, and Gene Dufratg three sopho-
mores, Bill Hill, Tom Dombroski, and Mat Cashman. Billy Hill led this team in
scoring with Tommy Dombroski second.
The 1951 baseball season has great prospects for the Hale-Ray nine. With
only three men missing from last year's good team which had a record of eight wins,
and three losses. Back again to head the score on will be three seniors, Charles
Golet, Alan Kiley, and Paul Palmer, three juniors, Windy Baker, Wiley Valley,
and Gene Dufrat, and two sophomores, Tom Dombroski, and Bill Hill.
