Mrs. Robert R. White
During the past four years you have learned that
life calls for the highest qualities of character in our
leadership and in ourselves as a people of a great
democracy. You now have the resourcefulness, the en-
ergy, the steadfastness, and the devotion to the common
good that will enable you to live on a higher plane of
understanding and conscience while you direct yourself
toward the accomplishment of the heavy tasks before
y As you depart from Netcong High School, taking
with you wisdom, courage, tolerance, and charity, I
pray for your life's happiness and for the successfulness
of the position that awaits you.

And God stepped out on space,
And He looked around and said,
I'll make me a world."
Up from the bed of the river
Cod scooped the clayg
And by the bank of the river
He kneeled Him downg
And there the great God Almighty,
Who lit the sun and fixed it in the sky,
Who flung the stars to the most far corner of the night.
Who rounded the earth in the middle of His hand-
This Great God,
Like a mammy bending over her baby,
Kneeled down in the dust
Toiling over a lump of clay
Till He shaped it in His own imageg
Then into it He blew the breath of life,
And man became a living soul.

they haven't the intelligence to vote.

Au Revozrg Mr Greenleaf April 15, 1953
On April 15, 1953, we bade farewell
to Mr. John P. Greenleaf who had taught
41 years at Netcong High School.
Mr. Greenleaf is congratulated by Mr.
William D. McKelvie, superintendent of
Netcong Schools, after having been pre-
sented gifts at a dinner in Mr. Green-
leaf's honor sponsored by the P.T.A. and
the Netcong Board of Education.
Mr. Greenleaf, now 65, was born in
Hobart, N. Y., the son of the Reverend
and Mrs. Jonathan Greenleaf. He attend-
ed Blair Academy and enrolled at Am-
herst College. Later he transferred to
Lafayette College, and was graduated from
the Easton school in 1912. He joined the
teaching staff at Netcong High School the
In addition to instructing the math
classes, Mr. Greenleaf has taught Latin,
English, and most of the science courses
offered at the school.
Mr. and Mrs. Greenleaf will spend some
time vacationing in Florida and then will
make their permanent residence in In-
Our class presented Mr. Greenleaf with
a gift and wished him much health and

head touched the pillow.
Suddenly I was no longer sleeping but traveling in a cab down a broad highway
bordered on either side by rich green farmland. I was very much surprised to learn from
the driver that the land was owned by my old classmate, Bill Sturm. As we rode by Bill's
house I caught a glimpse of my old friend Kitty Togno shooing some chickens out of

girl friends were working at the Netcong General Hospital. I went over to see the hospital
and, while wandering through its gleaming hall, Charlene Rarick came hurrying by. She
only had the time to say "Hello" and then she had to hurry upstairs to assist Lee Meyerson.
head surgeon, in a major operation.
Further down the hall I caught a glimpse of Chris Mailander and Cathy Sawchuck
in starr-hed white uniforms. They waved and then hurried into a patient's room.
I wandered out into the street again and over to the newly 'enlarged A 8 P store.
As I entered one of the aisles, I was surprised to see Barbara Bahm, Joyce Everman, and
Roberta Agens. They were discussing the economy of the married woman. They asked me
if I had seen the new High School. As I hadn't, I grabbed a cab and took a ride up to
my old Alma Mater on College Road. I doubt if anyone could have prepared me for the
amazement I felt at seeing this beautiful, modern building. Lynn Dalberg was teaching
French and she told me that Helen Harbourt was doing very well teaching Latin. I saw
Mary Lou McConnell disappearing into Mr. Frisoli's old room. Teaching history had always
been Mary Lou's greatest desire. I found Margaret Smith busily typing in the office.
She had replaced Mrs. McGillick.
On the ground floor of the school I found a large modern manual training room,
where Malcolm Batson and Bob White were busily instructing a large group of boys.
Right next door was the guidance department. Marilyn Riggs, who had always had
a pleasing personality, was head of this department.
In the new library I found "Ma" Peterson. Norma was busily cataloging books and
didn't have much time to talk. I told her how surprised I was to see so many of my old
classmates. She told me that Betty LaFalce was a biologist in a laboratory in New York.
Norma told me to be sure and go see the new Dupont plant operated by Peggy Yonkauski.
Many of the members of the class of '55 were employed there as secretaries. Vincenirz Franco-
macaro. Anna Baylor. Dolores DiRenzo, Irene Compagnone, and Pat McManus were busily
typing. Pat said that Margaret MacLauren was doing much of the designing for Dupont.
I learned that Nancy Griggs had opened up her own detective agency with Lois
Fuschan as her private secretary.
Richard Elwell was still in the Navy, and the common belief was that he would
make it his career.
In reading the television listings. I learned that the Bowman Sisters were a regular
part of the cast on "Codfrey's Friends." Colleen Murtha and Tommy Wallace were receiving
favorable press ravings for their sparkling wit on the "Comedy Hour."
I also noticed that two more of my old classmates had fulfilled their musical ambitions.
John Smith and Leonard Narracci were "wowing" the public with their sensational piano
duets. Naturally, Philip Schomp, a former All-State Chorus man, was singing in a large
church in New York City.
A fine new barber shop had opened in town and I saw my old classmate Anthony
Lamberto, giving some'local citizen a shave. Right next door was a new radio-television
repair shop owned and operated by Sonny Costanza.
Basenese's Oldsmobiles was doing a booming business with Mary Basenese as their top
Bob Colabella had opened a dancing school in town which was fast becoming very
The Dodgers were favored to win the series. Their outstanding pitcher, Jack Haag,
had played a major part in helping them take the pennant. I learned that another old
classmate of mine, John DeMattio, had signed a contract to coach at Duke University this
year. Another old classmate, Bob Esposito, was coaching at Moravian.
Philip Esposito, now superintendent of the Lackawanna Railroad, waved as he rode
past me in his new Cadillac.
Rosemarie Grogan was still Attorney Meyerson's secretary. Rosemarie told me that
Paul Batson was employed at the Bell Telephone Company and really enjoyed his work.
Gus Rampone had enlarged and modernized "Rampone's Shoe Repairs." I heard he
was using a great deal of new time-saving machinery.
Square Deal Coal Company was expanding rapidly due to the charm of their able
secretary, Diana Bencivenga.
Another establishment, Dezio's Body Shop. was keeping John Dezio, another old
classmate of mine, very busy.
John told me that Bobby Newton had a wonderful job as manager of the L'Pep Boys"
in Dover. Bob had always been very active and this news didn't particularly surprise me.
The next thing I knew, sunlight was pouring into my bedroom. I realized that I
had only been dreaming!! However, I'm sure that all the members of the g'Class of 'SS'
will some day fulfill their ideals and ambitions with the utmost of success.

Father Knows Best
by Kirsten Sergei
S Y N 0 P S I S
Getting her first date with Ralph wasn't easy,
and Betty's afraid it'll be her last. Father, after
reading a newspaper story about teen-age elope-
ment decided that Betty and Ralph must spend
the evening at home. Father will get acquainted
with the young man-and if he passes inspec-
tion, they can go dancingwnext time. It seems
that Bud, Kathy and even Mother have also
made plans to go out. Aggravated, Father puts
his foot down-they'll all stay home.
Excitement and humorous complications
grow, and then in the final scene Father dis-
covers that while he may know best, the young
people know a little, too.

that we shall always merit the confidence you have had in us.
Though our ways separate, and we know that such a meeting as this will

Netcong High School spirit. This is the one thing we have in common, and
it will always serve as a hond. The ideals for which the high school stands
will he a beacon light to guide us ever onward and upward.
As we have striven to live up to the standards of the Netcong High School
Spirit and have come thus far along the way, we have not only finished this
stage in our progress toward the goal, but we have also laid a foundation for
So, with the Netcong High School Spirit ever in our minds, we hid fare-
