Hale-Ray, our Alma Mater, we thy students proudly raise.
Hail to thee, proud Alma Mater, fondest mem'ries in thee lie.
This our song of true devotion, this our song of grateful praise.
We salute thee, Alma, may thy spirit never die.
Knowledge gained within thy walls ever our true guide will be.
May thy fame grow ever greater, and thy glory e'er increase.
Many hours of earnest study, friendship, and joy have we spent in thee.
Hale-Ray, we'll love thee always, our praise of thee shall never cease.

Dear old Hale -Ray High. Dear old Hale-Ray High.
The time is here, the years fled fast,
We're on the threshold of the future and have only mem'ries of the past.
Our hearts are filled with both joy and sorrow,
And each of us are preparing for our great tomorrow.
As we look back,we recall when we first started out,
We climbed the school stairs carefree and without a doubt.
The year was '47, our first day at Hale-Ray,
And now it's '59, it's Graduation Day,
To the past it's good bye, to the future, hello!
As we gaze at the wide world we wonder which way we should go.
Some will begin new careers, others will further their education.
Each of us working hard, for we're the future generation!
Yet none of us will 'ere forget the years that have gone by,
And each of us shall remember always our years at Nathan Hale -Ray High.

Once upon a time, 1947 to be exact, there was much excitement
in many homes throughout Moodus, Colchester, and East Haddam.
There were a few tears, many smiles, and high hopes for a memorable
first day of school. The busses rumbled up in front of the big red
building which was to be our second home for the next twelve years.
As we sat nervous and excited in our seats, Mrs. Weaver called the
roll. All were present. Our teacher taught us printing, reading,
arithmetic, and spelling, and we had the most fun with the paints
and toys she let us play with. During this year we began our weekly
expeditions to the Public Library where we got our first library cards.
We were promoted to the second grade and divided into two
sections. Mrs. Thomas and Mrs. Oakes were our teachers.
In the third grade we went back together into one classroom. Mrs.
Peck was to guide us through our third year.
We entered the fourth grade where Mrs. Landauer taught us many
new things. During this year we went to Mystic Seaport on our class
The fifth grade held many surprises for us. Our teachers were
Mrs. Davison and Mrs. Landauer. During this year we had a class
Here we are, the big shots at last, the sixth graders. We visited
the Peabody Museum where we all fell in love with an alligator.
If we thought we were "big shots" last year, we were "proud
peacocks" this year, We were the first seventh grade class in the
In the eighth grade we visited the United Nations Building, the
Museum of Natural History, and the Hayden Planetarium where we
had fun star-gazing.
We were officially welcomed into the ninth grade with a Fresh-
man Reception. Our class achieved fame by becoming the PROUD
WINNERS of the Magazine Campaign.
In our sophomore year we danced to the sweet strains of Canadian
Sunset at our Hop. The floor was decorated like a scene from Hans
Brinker with the sun setting on an ice -skating pond with real fir trees
The reigning King and Queen were Ann Pross and Ave Sprecher.
Last year, our Junior year, was the one always to be remembered
as a whirl of dances. It was our turn to welcome the new Freshman
Class and remember how we felt on that special night. Our Junior
Prom was the next, with all the decorations in red and white for Saint
Valentine's Day. Ann Pross once again became the reigning Queen
with Tom l-lurd at her side. As if two dances were not enough we
honored the departing Seniors with a Senior Ball. The hall was
transformed into a garden scene with the sweet fragrance of flowers
filling the air. Birds and butterflies peeked from the folds of the
curtains. The honor of being King and Queen went to Bob Blaschik
and Virginia Zeleznicky.
And now we are Seniors. Our years of high school will soon be at
an end. Some of us have been here for twelve years, others for only a
few. But all of us will be looking back and remembering our
memorable years at Hale -Ray. This year too shall be remembered
with wistfulnessg our rush in meeting the Yearbook deadlines, our trip
to Washington, our Senior sock hops, and most of all our Graduation.
Soon we will leave our High School Wonderland , some of us to enter
another. But we shall never forget our friends and our experiences in
these, our most cherished years of our life.
The Seniors, along with one lone cotton pickin' Junior Qwe don't know how he got therej, pictured
during a moment of rest from their normally mountainous work schedule.

The Ray Chapter of the Future Farmers of America is one of the more active F F A groups in the state As
well as learning the principles of vocational agriculture in the classroom the F F A has many outside activities
One of the more interesting is the maple sugaring project which the boys undertake each year The whole prolect
from the gathering of the sap to the final boiling is done by the Vo. Ag. boys. The Ray Chapter is also very active
in the forestry phase of agriculture. The fire fighting crew that consists ofthe Vo Ag boys always stand ready to
defend our forests against the ravages of fire.

The soccer season of 1958 was one of the greatest in Hale-Ray history. The season was started with only four
returning starters from last year's star-studded team. For Coach Tom Nevers, the "Casey Stenge1" of soccer, there
was a considerable amount of juggling and teaching to be done in order to form a winning team.
The "Little Noises" who later gained the nickname "Zero Boys" went through their regular season of 15 games
undefeated, untied and unscored upon--a feat never before accomplished in the history of Connecticut high school
soccer. The "Zero Boys" with such a remarkable record had no trouble winning the Shoreline Title.
ln the semi-finals of the State Tournament, Hale-Ray defeated Valley Regional of Deep River 3-1.
The finals of the state tournament were played at Manchester against Suffield of the Central Valley League.
Veteran soccer observers rate this game as the greatest ever played in small school tournament history. For four
regulation periods and two overtimes these teams hammered each other from one end of the field to the other, in
a magnificent display of soccer. When darkness finally closed out the contest the game had ended in a 1-1 tie
and Hale-Ray 85 Suffield were Co-Champions of the state of Conn.
'In winning their fifth state championship in seven years, Hale-Ray set numerous records including 15 games
without being scored upon, scoring a record total of 60 goals and extending their win streak to 33 games.
