The twenty-first annual number, Herein, you will, no doubt, find yourself knocked about a bit but we trust you'll realize it was all done in accordance with the New Deal under the "fun code". A great deal of credit for the success of this local project is due to the Art and Commercial Departments to whom we extend our sincere thanks in appreciation of their efforts. And now, my good people, turn over a new leaf, join the ranks of those who look at life with a smile, and remember "We Did Our Part". .1 -. ff4TTlijf-7'finj'f2'?f?rcf:: I ,7 4 .:. .QM ' 1.,i..:.

A Message To the Mid- Year and june Graduates of 19342 The other day a student asked me whether it was not my desire that the students of the school be happy and suggested something that I might do to make at least one student happier. I replied that this students happiness must be of his own making, that happiness is subjective. I would submit this thesis to you: Happiness, in the best and fullest sense of the word, is subjective. At any particular time it is attendant upon the individual who has a good conscience and has adjusted him- self to his limitations of health, to the persons whom he con- tacts and to his material circumstances. The mission of the school and of every worthy member of society is not to create happiness but ever to refine the sense of right and wrong, ever to deepen the appreciation of the beautiful as opposed to the ugly and quicken the search for the true as opposed to the falseg ever to improve conditions of health and the opportunities and means for the expression of personalityg and ever to increase the blessings of material wealthg-to do all this not for a chosen few, not for us and for ours but for all. President Franklin Roosevelt offers an outstanding example of one who is in the midst of adverse conditions both of men and of things, who is doing all in his power to bring a better day and who is still unconquerably happy. You may not have a job. You may not have sufficient to eat, Your clothes may not be what you would like. Others may be unkind and in- considerate, Keep a good conscience, make your adjustments, and yours will be the peace which the world cannot give and cannot take away. Genuinely yours, LOUIS P.

"Clif" February 4, 1916 "A gentleman that loves to hear himseU talk" Who's that man CU with the wonderful gift of gab, dashing down the hall? None other than our brilliant Shakespearian actor i'Cliff." 1 wonder what Mr. Dorsey will do now that there're no more erasers to dodge. fln case you don't know what we mean ask Cliff-he knowsj By the way, Cliff, who is the "Girl in the Little Green Hat"7 Amphion Club Treasurer, President Graduating Class, Class Night Castg Business Manager of the Beehive. KATHERINE MARGUERITE PAGE New Britain, Conn. "Peggy" july 24, 1916 "Shes pretty to walk with And witty to talk with And pleasant too, to think on" Peggy is the girl liked by everyone. With her dark hair, brown eyes, and winning smile, it's no wonder she has many friends. However, theres a certain milkman in town that seems to claim a great, yes a very great deal of Peggys attention. Lucky fellow! Even if she did rather embarrass us at the banquet by reading the prophecy, we'll forgive her this time. We hope she'11 be a success at Moodys. Vice President of Class. WALLACE HENRY HOWE New Britain, Conn. "Wally" October 13, 1915 "Money makes the man" Wally is one of our rather quiet boys, until you know him. just in case you don't know him, he has light hair, brown eyes, is rather tall and good looking. But, of course, you all must know him for it was i'Wally" who took away our money for class dues at graduation. XVe give him credit, he surely has a line to make us pay. lf he's as successful in other phases of life we know that someday he'1l be a big business man. Treasurer of Class. EUNICE EMILY MANN New Britain, Conn. "Eunie" March 23, 1916 "Good Things Come in Small Parcels" VJho's the cute little girl with the bright smile and curly hair? None other than"Eunie"Mann. Perhaps it's her interest in a certain young Veterinarian at the University of Penn, that keeps her spirits soaring! We wonder what the Amphion Club will do now, for it was always Eunie who brought the laughs. Although a fun loving little girl, she excelled in her studies and received general honors. Her nevct stop is Teachers' College, We know that she'11 be a success, Secretary Graduating Class 1, 2, 33 Editor-in-Chief of Beehive, Class Night Castg Marshal February l933g Secretary Amphion Club, loast at Banquetg Girls' League. ARTHUR SOUTHCOMB DAY New Britain, Conn, "Art" December 10, 1917 "He carried an old mind, with a youthful body" 1-1ere's how to our Toastmaster and our heartiest wishes for a suc- cessful and happy future. "Art" is the kind of a fellow who will succeed in anything he does. He won the Harvard Book Prize when he was a Junior and he certainly deserved it. Mr. Drapeau says he's one of the few students who have grasped a feeling for French life and thought. We'11 be watching for your name in the papers in a few years. Best of luck!

"Comte" May 13. l9lo "A collection of books is a university" Did you ever see a dream walking? lf you haven't, just look at "Cornie." He is one boy who prefers a bed to anything else, Of course we can't blame him for that, but we wish that he'd sleep in the right places. The only time he smokes is when he's angry. So be- ware of i'Cornie" when he's got a cigarette in his mouth, he's liable to eat you up. He enjoys collecting souvenirs from everywhere he goes. If you want to prove this try and Gnd a piece of wallpaper showing in his room, l-le is well liked by all of his associates. Senior Club, Chairman, Prom Committee, Delta Xi Fraternity. ELEANOR RUTH ANDERSON New Britain, Conn. "Andy" November 9, 1916 "The maid who modestly conceals her beauties" Eleanor is the kind of a girl men rave about, blonde, blue eyes, bright smile, and good disposition fwhen she's in the proper moody Vv'e haven't heard so much about her but we know she's here all right. lf you see a gathering of boys "Andys" sure to be the cause. Per- haps it's her undying, "pep, vim, and vigor." ,IOSEPHINE RITA ANTHONY New Britain, Conn. 'lla' March 18, l9l4 "And all your fortune lies beneath your hat" "Jo" Anthony is the girl with the tricky hats-and can she wear them to perfection? "jo" can hold her own when it comes to sewing Cwe think she'll haunt room ll0j. She's the little Miss who always wears spike heeled shoes to make herself appear taller. She doesn't attend many school dances but then, shes over the school boy age. Girls' League. FRANKLIN SIMPSON ATWATER New Britain, Conn. "Coachy" August 24, 1916 i'Seasonx may roll But the true soul Burns the same where'er it goes" "Coachy" needs no introduction to most of us. lf you were at the banquet you know the reason why. lf "Coachy" ever came to class unprepared we'd think the world was coming to an end. Yet it pays "to be prepared" for his name was on the general honor list. With his Winsome smile, versatile abilities, immaculate dress, and rosy cheeks we know he'll be a success at lvl. l. T. Toast "To The Girls" at Banquet, Banquet Committee. DOROTHY BARNES New Britain, Conn. "Dot" December 22, 1916 "Quiet persons 'e welcome everywhere" Our tall, fair-haired, more miss who is one Gne girl! fso all the boys sayj, Did you ever :iance7 Believe me she makes her partners step. But her fax pastime is horseback riding, and, in one way she reminds us of the Prince of Wales, also noted for his eques- trian accomplishments. Well, heres good luck to you, and may you succeed!

He has a cheerful disposition and because of the comparative ease with which he "tackles" math prcb- lems, we all suggest that he be a math teacher, Although Aram was not on the city payroll, he held a job of distinc- tion at N. B, H. S., that of supervising the studies of athletes. Bayram with his Eddie Cantor eyes ought to go places. New Britain, Conn. NORMAN ELMER BLOMBERG New Britain, Conn. 'iLou" May 8, 1916 "He is tall enough to strike awe into the beholden" Our class night hero, Does he Lochinvar or does he Lochinvar7 Hot Cha!!! Never mind Lou-we like you just the same because of your pleasing personality and ways. And does the i'villain" throw a mean eraser? Going into Miss Adams's room is like going "over the to . Qllfe know you will be successful in anything you undertake-just as you succeeded in putting Class Night over. Au Revoir, Glass Night Cast. ANNE THERESE BOYLE New Britain, Conn, December 7, 1915 "One vast, substantial smile" l-lere's one member ol' our class who is always full of bubbling laughter and good fellowship. She may have a hard time getting through some of her work but she always comes out the winner. Her friends are always glad to have her among them because of her fun-loving spirit, Good luck to you in fighting your way to the top, Ann. FLORENCE RUTH BUCKWALTER Hartford, Conn. i'Bucky" September 29, 1914 "Her personal charm and winning smileg Draws us all, mile after mile" How does 'iBucky" carry all those weighty ideas in that little head of hers? Does it surprise you to know that "Bucky" will some day be a great artist? lf she can draw as well as she can sew, success is hers. We need not look far for a friend when 'iBucky" is around. Good luck to you. Phi Delta Sorority, ARMAND ANGELO CENCI New Britain, Conn.

One day he's happy, another time he's blue, but we've all noticed he never fails to have an argument. W'e honestly believe he'd talk you into believing black was white if he so We nearly lost our beloved C71 debater because he thought studying English wasn't necessary, but, for once, someone else must have won the argument for he's still with us. Good luck. VIRGINIA LOUISE FAGAN New Britain, Conn. "Gin" january 5, 1916 " Humility is the foundation of all virtue" Although Virginia is one of the quiet girls of our class, she is a clever one too! She has made a success of life at New Britain High School, Her next stop is Connecticut Teachers College and we hope she will SERGE DANKEVITCH Buffalo, N. Y. "Cheesy" September 18, 1915 'The last laughter is always the best one yet" Serge is as much an institution at N. B. H. S, as Mr. Bo11man's waste basket, non-tardy passes, or the Girls' League. For three years he has kept us in laughter and drowned all our blues with his vocalisms, piano playing, and imitation of MPopeye". He certainly can play the piano and compose music. We all heard him play his own com- 'iCheesy" certainly knows his Greek and Latin and what else? And what a hit he made Class Night! Vife know you'll never lack jokes and we hope you'11 be a successful Paderewski or Chopin in the near future. You have our heartiest wishes, "Cheesy". VIRGINIA ANN DAVIS Pittsfield, Mass, "Ginny" August 26, 1916 "She is possessed with thoughts of the kitchen" Virginia is the girl who must love history-taking two Civics for this year and doing supplementary in history from last Semester, We remember her as the girl who always had a little something she made in cooking to make our mouths water at noon with the smell. We hope she makes as good a nurse as she does a cook. Representative Girls' Leagueg Senior Club, Class Vifill. LUCILLE ANN GIROLAMO lvliddlefleld, Conn, "Bobs" Augu "Thou weft my guide, philosopher, and friend" Lucille is our dark-haired right hand helper. Lucy seems to have the knack of comforting everyone. If you want to know your mark on an examjust ask her, We don't know how she does it, but she'll tell you every time. Dont ever get in an argument about the N. R. A. or C. W.

"Handsome Harry" july 12, 1916 " Handsome is as handsome does" Better known as "Handsome Harry", he is an ambitious student and is not a person who will shrink away from work. He is an honest and trustworthy person. Although he was not a member of the High School athletic teams, he is very much interested in most forms of athletics and is a good sport. ln our estimation, he will be a prominent and successful business man in the future. ELEANOR ANNA HANSON New Britain, Conn, "El" April 19, 1916 "The Present Fashion Is Always Handsome" E1ly's our walking fashion plate. No need to go to Paris to see the latest creations as long as Elly is with us. We wonder what Dot Barnes would do without her. Find one, and the other is sure to be around somewhere. Vv'ho's the neat-looking young man, Elly? "Dont you Fink We Known? Phi Sigmag Chairman lvlotto Committee, Girls' League.

FLORENCE MYERS DUCH New Britain, Conn. "Duke" October 20, 1915 "Number, Please" Who doesn't know Florence! lf you dont, just visit the office and see her working as our future telephone operator. "Duke" always has a smile for everyone including the boys. lf she doesn't get along in this world--who will' lf she doesn't turn out to be a telephone operator she will be our future costume designer. Well! Good luck, Florence, we hope you succeed, Senior Club, Representative Girls' League. ANN MARY DEUTSCH lvlilwaukee, Wisconsin "Ann" March 12, 1913 'il cannot tell thee when we meet what most I long to say" Ann is a very talkative girl but she always seems to find walking listeners. She likes variety. Ann's a nice dresser, in fact, she always looks as though she just stepped out of a i'Band-box".

This simply proves you don't have to be a young Lochinvar to attract some peoples attention. Heres hoping, Bill. IRMA ERICKSON New Britain, Conn. April 8, l9lo "Sing us now a lender song" lrma is the girl with the beautiful soprano voice. She takes vocal lessons and we are sure that some day she'll be a great opera singer. She wanted to be a nurse at one time but she has decided to be a lady of leisure at least until she becomes famous and her public won't allow her a minute to herself. Still again Irma would also make a good dressmaker. She has a charming personality and is great fun because she never loses her temper, Everyone is a friend to lrma.

He may not be called exceptionally smart or clever but when he has a test to tackle he may be found in a corner studying away at his books, He is very chatty and always talking about modern problems. We call him "Nicke-e-e-e-e". SADYE DORIS HAROIAN New Britain, Conn.

The faculty has lectured him incessantly, but we've come to the conclusion that there's nothing between his ears to retain what he's been told. And as for gum chewing! Wrigley's will soon be taking a first mortgage on the mint. l-le's always got some wisecrack ready and it doesnt make a bit of difference whether he's in a classroom or not.

"Bill" january 4, 1915 "He will get there on his own power" Bill was somewhat of a mystery, we never quite placed him in our scheme of things. He was what one might call the moving spirit of the electrical department of the Trade School, the power behind the punch, or a high voltage organizer, or something. Whatever went on around his reservation, Bill always took an unofficial leading part and usually had his gang out in front. Aside from being too honest he has all the requirements of a good politician. N. B. S. T. S. A. A. 2, 3, 4. ABRAHAM FALK New Britain, Conn.

The fact that she did come to New Britain is surprising, since Hartford is so-o-o interesting. When Madeline finally decided to contribute to the class recitation, she showed us that she can reel off facts about a man's life almost as fast as a bomb explodes.

Speaker: Famous television star, "The Voice of lnexperiencew appearing in person at the reunion. Good Evening Friends: Our Hrst letter this evening is from the former Miss Ruth Ely. She writes: "I have been married three times. My first husband was Edward Luke Drinkwin, the farmer of Ell--m Hill. I received a divorce from him on the grounds of mental cruelty. My next husband, Alexander Abraham, mysteriously disappeared after a family quarrel. After he was declared legally dead I married john Narisavicus. heavy-weight champion of the Army. He committed suicide by means of a suicide machine of his own invention, Now my dear Voice of Inexperience, I would like to know if I ought to marry Israel Rosensweig, the great financier and philanthropistf' Faithfully yours, Mrs. Ruth Ely Narisavicus. Answer: My Dear Mrs. Narisavicus, In my experience it seems that in cases like yours, you will find everlasting happiness. Do not give up in despair. I have heard from others in similar circumstances who are now living contented lives. Raymond Rechenbcrg and Mary Reid, Norman Blomberg and Eva Hyde are two examples in this cityg perhaps you know them. Next we hear from Mrs. Dorothy Barnes Schmidt who writes: i'Nly husband gave me some money and told me to put it in a place where it would draw interest so I have placed it in my stocking. Do you think this proper for a lady in my position?" Answer: This will depend on whether or not your husband is of a jealous disposi- tion. If not, by all means do as you like, if he is you had better tell him first. I have here a letter from Armand Cenci who has been offered a position as chief scissor grinder in "Scheidler's Sharp Scissor Shop". He asks if there is any money to be derived from this occupation. i'5.IL7f?2QigH 193 r 5 Page Thirty-eighl 1 N B H S Answer: Well, Mr. Cenci, we have a very good example for you in Charles Klett who has long since made his first million as a scissor grinder. Mr. Harry Sandstrom of the team of Sandstrom and Aluska tight rope artists of the "Barley and Bayram Circus" wishes to know what he can do as he is losing weight and is afraid of losing hisjob. Answer: I am so glad that you asked about this for there may be many who would also like to know about this. I would advise you to pay a visit to Dr. Eleanor Skinner who has perfected a diet for the addition of avoirdupois. Miss Anna Savonis would like to know if she should trust the care of her teeth to Dr. Albert McClellan who has the reputation of being absent minded. Answer: Dear Miss Savonis, I do not think you need to fear, I know that the famous dentist Ivar Jensen has the same affliction, Once when he was apply- ing pliers to his automobile he said soothingly, "Now this is going to hurt just a little," yet inside his office he was perfectly normal. Next we hear from the famous art critic, Miss Ruth Walter, She writes: "While on a visitation to an exhibition of the eminent artist, Ada Neri, seeing a painting having exquisite beauty of the modernistic type I remarked,'What is this? It has such soul, such expression! It's superbl' iYes' said Ada ithat's where I clean my brushes. Now my dear Voice of Inexperience I would like you to honor me with your opinion as to whether or not I can sue her for blemishing my reputation as a most reputable art critic?" Answer: This is a rather difficult problem I must admit However I do not believe I would choose this method of retaliation. Under similar circumstances, Miss Beatrice Owen, your contemporary, after hearing of a remark of a distasteful nature paid to her by another famous painter, Mr. Walter johnson, redeemed herself in her own estimation by refusing to patronize the paint shop owned by the five johnsons, Alford, Alvar, Clarence, I-Iarder, and Walter, and did him further harm by verbal means. Do you not think this means of retaliation would be preferable to that of court? I have here a letter from Mr, Wallace I-Iowe, I-Ie writes: "I am one of the partners of the famous Zevin and I-Iowe tango and rhumba dance team, Our problem is this: financially we are a great success, however, we are continually quarreling because Miss Zevin believes that at certain times I purposely drop her, and though the audience thinks that this is a part of the show, in reality it is not and is very unpleasant for me. Do you think we should remain to- gether purely for financial reasons or should we separate for personal hap- piness?" Answer: To this, Mr, I-Iowe, I would compare your case with that of the famous Shakespearean actors, Mr. Clifford McCarthy and Miss Eunice Mann, who are making a great success of a revival of Romeo and Juliet. They are very unhappy together and yet they sacrifice themselves for the sake of their public and pocketbook. Our next letter is from that most renowned gigolo Ixlr. Arthur Day. He writes that he is deeply grieved and heartsick because he has been refused by the very wealthy Vera johnson Anderson, divorced wife of Carleton Anderson who made his fortune as an iceman. I-Ie wants to know if he should resort to blackmail to appease his aching heart, -. 7 ,4 ,.-,-.--.V V7, Q., 1'-711757 iw J , dui. .,,'..'..' Page Thi rty-nine X B H P Answer: My friend, after a little investigation, I come to the conclusion that this would be a most unwise move, for Carl Hewitt. the editor of the 'iDaily Scan- dals" is a close friend and adviser of Mrs. Anderson and if he were to discover this and publish it you would receive much notoriety which would blemish your fair name. Next we hear from Eleanor Hanson who is managing a concession called "The Streets of New Britain" at the Worlds Fair in honor of New Britain's most celebrated son, Edward Rothstein, who recently brought. about the i'Re- turn of Prohibition." She has sent me a picture and description of her com- pany and begs me to tell her how to change the act so that they will draw crowds. Answer: IX4iss Hanson, From your picture I can see that you ought to modernize your show. For instance, have the Litke twins instead of a minuet, do a fan dance. I-Iave Irma Erickson instead of singing opera become a torch singer. Have "jo" White develop a "Come Up Some Time" attitude to encourage the sale of tickets. Have Edna LaFlamme and William Tierney fired, there is no possibility of any hope in that direction. Other improvements on this line will help to make your performance a success. And here is a letter from lvliss Viola Lifshitz. This is a part of her letter. 'ilVIy dear Voice of Inexperience, for months I have listened faithfully every Sunday night to that wonderful, most adorable comedian, Serge Dankevitch. I confess that my heart has flown to him and I realize now I cannot live with- out him. Will you please tell me how I can meet this man of my dreams so that we can be married?" Answer: Yours is a very sad case. I am very sorry to have to tell you that your dream man is already married and living happily with his five girls. I have also received a letter from Irma Taylor who says that she runs a sewing circle for domestically inclined men. She wants to know what to do with one of her pupils, Italo Recano, who is continually cutting up. I am afraid there is no hope of correction in this case as Mr. Recano has always been noted as a cut-up. Clarence Peterson wants to know the age of the television artist extra- ordinary, Edna Hall. Answer: Well, Clarence, between you and me and the lamp post, she is really 37, but has been marked down to 29. The last letter for this evening is from Ralph Merigold, a big business man in Podunkville, Me. He says: "I have just installed a dictaphone in my office the First in these here parts. My secretary, Thelma Crozier, however, refuses to use the dictaphone and insists on sitting on my lap to take dictation. I don't want to fire her because I am very fond of her and shes a very fast worker, but she is setting a bad example for the rest of the office. What can I do?" ' Answer: The solution is very simple, Mr, lvlerigold. Since you say you are fond of her all you have to do is marry her and the situation will take care of itself. This concludes my program for this evening and I sincerely hope that all of you who have distressing problems will send them to me so that I may help you as I hope I have helped others this evening.

As his marks will appreciably show, Ben is one of our more studious boys. He is a popular figure at all social activities and is said to have a strong interest in the opposite sex. Ben also has athletic ability as a golfer. He is planning to go to Yale to study engineering, We know you will succeed, Bennie, and we wish you all the happiness that goes with success.

Out of class-still looks demure but doesn't act itl Lately she has been forsaking local talent and dividing her time between two well-known prep schools. Well, the best of luck to ya', Curtiss, and may the best man win! Alpha Alpha Sorority, Girls' League. JOSEPH CHARLES MIKLOS New Britain, Conn. "Muggsey" or "Mickey" january 28, l9lo "The athlete, to whom what Heaven denied of soul, Is well compensated in limbs" "Mickey" is a second Tilden. Although tennis takes up most of his time, he manages to be up to date in his school work. We wonder how. Despite his reckless way of doing things he is well liked, especial- ly by the 'ifemsf' Aftercgraduation "Mickey" expects to become a tennis coach at a Country lub. We wish him success in his ambition. Tennis Z, 33 Class Treasurer. EVELYN RUBERTA BLEWS Bridgeport, Conn. "Evie" September ll, l9l6 "Full of cheer, and full of pep, Making friends with every step" This is "Grandma" Blews, famous for her interpretation of Little Red Riding Hood. But why bring that up when there are so many nice things to say about her? She is a hard worker and has certainly done her share for the Girls' League. She has a great capacity for making friends, and-is popular with both sexes. lt is her ambition to be a nurse for umental diseases." We wonder why she didn't practice on her classmates long ago, We hope you don't leave us too soon, Evie, but may you have the best of success wherever you are! Secretary of Graduating Classg Vice-President of Girls' League, Amphion Clubg Senior Clu 3 junior College Club. HENRY STANLEY KULAS New Britain, Conn. "Hennie" May 3, l9l6 "Reliable as an old wheel-horse" "Hennie" is one of the most reliable and serious minded gentlemen who are graduating in the class of 1934. He is well-mannered and ambitious. Serious studies have no qualms for him. He learns easily what he has a mind to and he is a very conscientious worker, As an editor of the Beehive he was a complete success. We hope he will make a success of all of his other undertakings both small and great. Track, Editor of the Beehive. ii.fTE5gi??ff .-t ti sfsrkt 193 4 if HN iff? 5559!

'iSherm" March Z, 1917 "As a singest I am not a success" Smart? l'1l tell the world! Study? Hardly ever. A'Sherm's" a good worker, leader, and a pal. Her latest interest is in Boston, but summer will soon be here. Although "Sherm" appears quiet, she is marvelous fun at parties, dances, etc. Her interest, other than of the opposite sex and outside of school, is in the Rainbow Girls. "Sherm's" aim is to become a teacher of crippled children, The best of luck and success to you, "Sherm". You deserve it. Amphion Club 3 junior College Club, Girls' League: Editor of Beehive. ANDREW HERVEY AITKEN Danbury, Conn. "Andy" April 10, 1915 A' Help yourself, and heaven will help you" "Andy" is the busy business man of our class. Why, the Bond Baking Co. should give him a fair bonus, "Andys" schoolwork happened to be prepared on time, and that is a marvel. Don't be surprised if a Hock of your classmates seek employment information from you. Take good care of yourself "Andy" and all the success will be yours, YOLANDA MARY AGOGLIATI Brooklyn, New York january 29, 1916 "A loving little life of sweet small works" Yolanda is a very vivacious brunette. You may not realize this from her picture but nevertheless she is. She has a cute little laugh and a funny way of clapping her hands. She comes from Newington but has nothing at all to do with the trolley car wreckers. Yolanda is very conscientious about doing her homework, but still Finds time to make a great many friends. ALFRED JAMES ANDERSON Northampton, Mass. "Al" December 8, 1914 "Women love great men" "Al", a well dressed boy, came to our school and caused many a heart to flutter, especially a certain person from Belvidere. l-le always seems happy, 1 guess we know the reason. Well i'A1" may your future life be one of great happiness. ESTHER LOUISE ANDERSON New Britain, Conn. "S" March 2, 1916 "ll is better to be beloved than honoured" who is better known as "Baby-Face", is always smiling, and revealing those enticing dimples. She is unusually clever with a needle, and came off with many "100's" in sewing, but was far from being a quiet seamstress. The life of every party and dance was and she sure was a good sport. We wish you a pleasant ride to "Indiana", but remember, brown eyes are your failing! Phi Sigma Sorority, Senior Club, Girls' League.

One of his pet fancies is women, and very often yovil can hear him asking joe De Fazio to 'Fix something up for to- Fll I1 . I-lere's hoping we'll hear more about Eddie in his future activities. Basketball and Baseball. MILDRED VIRGINIA ANDERSON New Britain, Conn. "Millie" August 9, 1915 "She is kind as she is fair" Millie certainly is a most ravishing blonde,+her smile like a rainbow after a storm. There seems to be a special reason for her particular interest in tennis. ls it the instructor? The best of success in realiz- ing your ambition to be a private secretary, Millie.

JOHN JOSEPH AUSANKA New Britain, Conn. june ZZ, 1916 "Business and action strengthens the Brain" john is a good all-around athlete and he is a well-known figure at the He is a business man outside of school as he delivers Heralds. If he does as well in whatever work he takes up after graduation as he has clone with his paper route, he'll be sure to succeed. MARGARET ELNORE ANDRUSS New Britain, Conn, "Peggy" February 17, 1916 "Thou loves! what thou dreamest herg I am that very dreamli' Margaret is one of those girls blessed with naturally curly hair. We don't know what she was generally thinking about, but it must have been something far, far away. We imagine she intends to be a stencg- rapher because shes been so faithful in our office, and walked many, many miles delivering official notices. Delta Gamma Sigma Sorority.

"'Tish" May 28, 1915 'Une good turn deserves another" Eleanor is a most industrious student, whom we're sure always had her work done. She was almost never absent, and proved a real help to her classmates by remembering all the notices. If we were in doubt about Auditoriums, Eleanor could tell us. We haven't the least idea what her future plans are, but her friendliness and efficiency should take her far. Girls' League GEORGE STANLEY BAGDONAS New Britain, Conn, "Buggy" August 8, 1915 "What a foolish thing is time" i'Baggy" happens to be one of the number of students who fail to be on time. We have failed to find a reason for his tardiness. Despite this one weakness George is quite an enthusiast in the scientific Field of electricity. He is also a great believer of exercise in the form of walking and swimming. Mr. Matthews will highly miss his first violinist. We will expect many good results from "Baggy's" future accomplishments. Orchestra. MARY FRANCES BAGDONAS New Britain, Conn. August 22, 1916 i'Talent convinces-Genius but excites" Mary is a genius with many talents, but art is outstanding. She can calmly sit down and create masterpieces without tearing her hair struggling for an idea, as often happens in the art department. Mary is a lover of cats. Anyone who knows her knows Snooky. Her ambition in life, so she declares, is to found a home for aged cats. 1t's really only a blind. She's going to be a famous artist. Mary is shy and bashful, but don't forget, 'Still water runs deep." And you should see Mary at a party. Girls' League. PHILIP BARON Lithuania "Phil" February 5, 1918 " Hear the sweet music of speech" "Meet the Baron". Here is one of our more loquacious classmates, always ready with a funny line, either in giving a Scholastic topic in English, or trying to get his graph card signed in Physics, fa favorite indoor sport of Philip'sj. He always had an interesting idea to present, and was never backward in expressing himself. Anyway the school work was done even if it did take some persuasions to, on the last day of every assignment. Good luck, old pal, and may you never be silenced. Upsilon Lambda Phi, Track. CAROL STARR BAKER Wilbur, New York May 8, 1916 Carol Baker is a very good looking blonde. She never caused much disturbance in school, but was well known as an office messenger, and 'iscribbleru of late passes. She always walks to school with a good girl pal, but who is that special person who escorts her home? May you have all the success due you, Carol, when you begin your nursing career. Girls' League.

"Les" january 12, 1917 " He is small and shy, But he's a pretty good guy" Leslies greatly occupied by going to school in the morning and delivering milk in the afternoon. He has been in the milk business for a number of years now. We believe he has a large savings account in one of the city's banks. Leslie happens to be bashful, but we all get that way some time, The Delvlolay members will help him get over the bashfulness. The days are numbered to the time when we all will see a milktruck possessing a sign which will read, i'Bentley's Dairy Products," EMMA DORIS BARATTIERO Berlin, Conn. 'iFatima" January l, l9l7 "Let she who knows the instrument play upon it" "Em" is that tall, dark girl, who, although quiet, has made many friends in school. We are sure her pleasant smile will make many more when she takes a position as a stenographer, She is well known as the violinist in the Six Sisters' Orchestra. l-lere's wishing you all the luck possible in both your future vocation and your avocation, "Em", Girls' League, Senior Club. MYRON BIRNBAUM New Britain, Conn. june 19, l9l7 "Music is the food of the Immortals" Unlike most of the graduates Myron is a quiet and studious sort of fellow. When we say quiet we make a mental reservation, since in the French class he has saved the day for certain members of the class who had not prepared the lesson by venturing a question which led into lengthy discussion by Professor Drapeau, He possesses talent as a piano player and music composer. Here's hoping that when Myron has attained the success that is sure to be his, he will remember his classmates of "34". BARBARA BARTLETT Poughkeepsie, New York December l8, 1916 "When a woman wills, she will, You may depend on it" Bartlett's a grand sport! One of those really smart persons who don't remind you of the fact. And does she get around the teachers without their realizing it! We hear she wants to go to Vassar, and if our wishes have anything to do with it-she certainly will. For whether you realize it or not, you're very popular with everybody, Bartlett, Alpha Alpha Sororityg junior College Clubg Social Committeeg Girls' League. RALPH BOHMER New Britain, Conn. "Professor" March 12, l9l5 "When bigger and better bums are made the women will make them" This is a final oonclusion in the theory of 'iProfessor" Bohmer, the worlds future greatest philosopher. Although the "Pro" advances in this practice he is not led by his own teaching but is letting the women lead him in life, However, despite his seriousness, the "Pro" manages to show some humor and this fact makes him a valuable asset to any English class. Ralph intends to become an engineer, and with his accuracy and self-confidence we can safely say this man will be a success in life. if ' W' I I 9 3 4 Page Fifty-one i "H ' Q-4' pa 'ps ff Q I f fx X -, V.,!,,fx, f'xi,,,,4' MARION AGNES BAXER New Britain, Conn.

Boy- that girl has some musical scales in her throat, Shes a real pal, always lending a helping hand and springing many self-made jokes which she is never out of. That girls' mind is never on her studies- we know she thinks of "that certain somebody". Although shes not very tall, she certainly can play basketball. She's headed to be a nurse and probably will have plenty of male patients with heart trouble. Lots of luck, Marion. Girls' League, Senior Club. CLIFFORD ARTHUR BOMBA New Britain, Conn. "Slugger" August 24, 1916 "A man of gladness seldom falls into madness" Who is that genial looking chap with the sunny disposition walking around the building in the middle of the period? lf he has a care free expression and is not carrying any books it is probably "Cliff".

Carolyn is very chic and she has brains to go along with that pleasing personality. Of course, we all imagine that the Senior High School had something to do with it. Her knitting accomplishments are the talk of all the girls. Benny is a good sport and can take a joke as well as give one. We all wish her luck after she leaves the N. B. H, S.

Although she is as "quiet as a mouse in a flour barrel" she can always make her- self heard when she wants to. lt sometimes takes more than three years to become familiar with our girls but it didn't take long for Gerry to become familiar with the art room.

He does not neglect his studies, however, for his ambition is to enter one of the professions. He now holds the position of deputy fire fighter in Berlin, and in the future we expect him to become one of the towns leading citizens. Track. FRANCES WILMA BRAY Hartford, Conn.

As President of the Girls' League she was most eHicient, and was famous for conducting a Penny-Potato Cam- paign.

We all have our weaknesses and we are sure the teachers will forgive him, HELEN EMELDA ZIMA Southington, Conn. "Patty" August 14, l9lo "She is wise who jinds that books are a means of travel" Heres a member of our class who is an excellent student and friend to all. She is always up-to-date in her work and has never been known to flunk a test. We all like her because she is always ready to help and advise us. Outside of school when she isn't studying or reading, UPatty" plays a good game of tennis. No one seems to know what her plans for the future are, but like all people of ability and energy, she will either be rich or famous, or maybe both, We wish you success and happiness. STANLEY HOLT WOODS Hartford, Conn. A'Stan" October 2, l9l7 "I like to work, it fascinutes me" i'Stan" is a very studious person who took the hardest subjects in the school. His studiousness is shown by his high marks. i'Stan" is seldom absent or tardy and that is something unusual for a Newing- ton boy. Keep up that good work so that we will be able to hear from the great man of Newington. MARY ANN AGNES ZNOSKO Kensington, Conn. "Mitzie" March lo, l9lo "Much is she worth" This girl who is always cheerful, friendly, and good natured is none other than Mary herself. You can always find her at the High School football and basketball games, for she is a lover of sports, But who is this tall, dark, "Bright Eyes" who takes up so much of her time? She certainly has a failing for those juicy peaches and apples in Barnes- dale. How about it, Mary? Your many friends wish you all possible success as a nurse. 193 4 F.

"Andy" December 24, 1915 'AAnything for zz quiet life" "Andy" is a talkative young man among his friends but in school, quiet as a little lamb. He is very much afraid of women and does not wish to have anything to do with them. "Andy" is a great Sport fan and can always be seen cheering for good old New Britain High. 1-1ere's our good wishes for your success and we'11 be hoping to hear more of you in the future. ANNE MARY ZWICK New Britain, Conn. October 25, 1916 "Shel: pretty to walk with, Ana' witty to talk with, And pleasant, too, to think on" Who is the attractive young miss who is sauntering along the cor- ridors with many an ardent admirer gazing after her, especially a certain member of our football squad? Anne, of course. She is re- sponsible for having put lvliss Souther in many an angry mood, but then, we can't put the blame entirely upon her. Anne is an accom- plished sewer, dancer, and a wizard in Stenography, and also a great cook. Boys, we think you'll have to look into the matter. Anne intends to be a private secretary. Wish you luck, Anne! Senior Club. JOHN ALEXANDER ZALESKI New Britain, Conn. "King" February 1, 1915 "A gentleman of quality and good tastes" "King" Zaleski the boy with that "extra something". He received extra points while a quarter back on our great football team. Quite an athlete is "King", 1-lis excellence even extended to other fields but his carefree ways got on the nerves of some, including a certain French teacher, formally of "Kings" homeroom. As a chairman of the prom committee he did a masterful job, even coming around to his own meetings, and all in all he was a great joy to our class advisers. ln graduating, the high schools loss will be somebody else's gain and doubtless we will see johnny running up and down some college grid- iron in the near future.

By the way, Viv, who is the handsome young man you've been corresponding with lately? It seems to be getting serious. Don't forget you are going to enter the business world. 7lO'i',',ifff'i',?f:Q r':f'?if"f" ' 1 3 4 -We Page Ninety-nine ' N ' f fs 'I V3-f f7"af2oio:iQ,2fVa-F SN B H .3 GENEVIEVE THERESA ZEBROWSKI New Britain, Conn. flennieu September 10, 1915 "Knowledge is Power" First in class, first in study, First in the hearts of her schoolmates.

Graduates from Nathan Hale and graduates from Central flocked to its portals in a manner aptly described by our dear friend, William Shakespeare: "Fools rush in where angels fear to tread" These selfsame freshmen were so numerous and so "bold", shall we say, that they soon broke every rule and regulation of the school. They learned every trick that the older students ever knew. Hookey-playing, skipping classes, and tardiness were just a few of the many vices that they picked up with amazing rapidity and thorough-going eagerness. Scholastics, however, was a horse of a different color. That, they believed, had no place in school and consequently should be given a wide berth, The administration, endeavoring to cope with this situation, made new rules and regulations. A traffic law was put into effect in order to keep the corridors free of congestion. This ruling continued with meager success until an entirely different system was inaugurated. We all remember our first experience in the library. As freshmen, we had the entire "library etiquette" explained to us in detail. We all must admit, however, that the efficiency of service and the quality of the reading matter are irreproachable, The second year found us well progressed in the customs of high school life. Some of the more talented of our group as: Thelma Crozier, Edythe Rosenberger, john Humason, Benjamin Taylor, and james Maloney suc- ceeded in making their mark in the dramatic circle, Thomas Griffin, William Dederian, Robert Erickson, Paul Kobela, Stanley Radjunas, joseph Granski, and Ludmil Chotkowski are but a few of the many who gained fame in athletics. Three of our number, known as model students, won scholarships for their outstanding scholastic achievements. They are Cecilia Gwiazda, Barbara Bartlett, and Naomi Dunn. In our Senior year circumstances were a bit different from those of the previous year. We were just getting over the depression and things in general were beginning to look brighter. In comparison to our freshman year, all was haste and worry as before, but for a different purpose. This time our aim was scholastic honors. ln summing up, we believe that the following facts should be brought to your attention. The Class of l934 is the largest ever graduated from the New Britain Senior High School. Our class experienced more changes than any other group before us. We entered in the midst of the depression and yet we were the first to receive free text books, Our class also experienced the change of athletic coaches and therefore new methods. The Intramural League is an example of a new idea in high school athletics brought about by Coach A'Chick" Shea. lt was during our time that sound motion pictures were installed in our auditorium. ln our Senior year, the double session system and the new kind of graph card were introduced. ln view of all these facts our quality of scholastics is remarkably high, and we leave this school with the sincere hope and endeavor, that all the time, money, and energy spent by the Board of Education and the High School administration will not have been in vain.

I turned to the article, "How to Obtain a Position". With casual interest, I commenced to read it. I did not get very far, however, and my drowsiness, helped by the patter of rain on the window sill, I soon fell asleep. I had a very interesting dream: It seemed that I was walking along Allen Street in Hartford when I was attracted to a window sign reading, "Naomi Dunn, D. D. S." I became at once interested and found my way up there. I went into her office and awaited my turn. As the inner office door was open, I was able to see Dr. Dunn work- ing on an exceptionally large fellow. It seemed difficult for her to do her work properly, and, becoming disgusted with the situation, she jumped onto the mans lap and completed her work easily. This scene abruptly shifted to Broadway, New York. Seeing Thelma Croziers name billed for Henry Littlejohn's play "Double Frame", at the Porta theatre, I hurried in. In the audience I recognized john Humason, famous dramatic critic, The play proceeded. To everyones surprise, the solemn-faced critic applauded. It was strange, because he was known for his lack of enthusiasm on Mfirst nights", , I could not see what happened next, for I was suddenly transported to a very large and modern hospital. I inquired of one of the head nurses, Adeline Semrow, who was the chief surgeon in that hospital. She laughingly told me it was Cecelia Gwiazda. It seemed that one Dr. Gwiazda left one of her surgical scissors in a patients side after an appendicitis operation. Fortunately for all, the mistake was discovered before all the stitches had been put in. When I reached home I picked up a "Literary Digest" and began to read an article by Benjamin Taylor, head of an internationally known publishing house. His article was entitled, "Why Good Literature is Good". "Tis said that lVIr. Taylor has a brilliant secretary, Helen Was. I noticed in this mornings paper that William Sarra, New Britain's new mayor, and his secretary, Clement Paznaskas, had left on a motor tour of New England before starting their official duties. a W . ff? .'fr'5"W'v'Ns'Vv1v 6 I.

AL AQQ J As I turned the radio on, I heard john Zaleski, the bright N. B. C. an- nouncer, giving, over an international hook-up, an account of the debut of ten American women at the Court of St. james. Among the debutantes were Norma Chamberlain and Betty Curtis, both of New Britain, Conn. These were the first from New Britain ever to be presented before royalty. I suddenly found myself in Liquania and went to call on the minister from the United States, Louis Teich. There I also met Florence Meskosky, Mr. Teich's head clerk. I was getting dazed by the sudden shifting of scenes. I was on my way to joseph Miklos' jewelry store to buy a gift for Barbara Bartlett, who had recently been promoted to the office of president of Vassar. A little farther on I came to the dressmaking establishment owned by Hilda Albert and Eleanor Arata. They told me that the Barons had gone into the wholesale dry goods business On my way back I met Celia O'Sullivan, the witty reporter on motion pictures, who told me aboutjames Maloney's forthcoming picture, "Meadoyfs". In it he plays the part of a suave butler who complicates the plot so much that even he didn't know where it was going to end. Farther on I met Grace Schmarr and Michael Seich, the newlyweds, who informed me that Miriam Skinner was one of the best English teachers at the new Parker High School. They also said that Sylvia Raschkow had gone into the nail polish business, Her brand was "Sylvex". The street seemed full of people I knew, for there were Elizabeth Cutter and Betty Middlemass, the society editors of the Herald, with Connie Grant, the "How to Raise Children Intelligentlyu writer. I hurried along, for I did not wish to miss seeing Clifford Bomba be or- dained as minister. When I met him he told me that Ferne Young had be- come a missionary to the African pygmies. I wished her luck. I seemed to be Hitting from place to place. I found myself in the famous Reckert theatre in New York. Patricia Mangan was playing the lead in the musical comedy, i'Ramona", The next outstanding feature was the dance act by Anne Cassey, Helen junack, Mary Bagdonas and Adelle Warnat, considered by critics as one of the best teams in the country. Helen Nadolney, who writes in the manner of the late O. O. McIntyre, was with me and she told me that George Simonian, an old classmate, was in New York, a dealer in spices and Oriental rugs. That scene abruptly changed, and I found myself at the West-Fritzen Circus grounds. The barker was Richard Riley. Coming from the circus grounds I met Libby Siedman and Anne Zwick, who had started an accident insurance company. They told me that they would not allow policies to football players. I was doubtful about Anne. When I reached home, I turned on the radio and, to my surprise, I heard Helen Szubzda, the new cooking school director. H I was suddenly awakened by a thump. My magazine had slipped to the oor. Marguerite M. Sargis .7.f'1fff.f1' f5wf3'21sif5 gi j tr .3 . we A.f,.X.tx.t,.LA.Ls.k's:.Qs4it2,,1, Q . -1g Page One Hundred Thirteen X ,, YWYY .,,,.

After only a few practice sessions, the team played its first game of the season against the strong Bristol team and with Captain Wojack leading the attack and scoring the first touchdown, New Britain was victorious l4 to 0. The next game was against Commercial High of New Haven and Wojack again led the team to a l9 to 0 victory by dashing sixty five yards for a touchdown. The team was held to a 6 to 6 tie against Stam- ford and then ran over Weaver High lf? to 0. The first defeat of the year was suffered against Hillhouse High l2 to 6. Granski started in this game with several long runs. The greatest victory of the season was recorded when New Britain won from Warren Harding of Bridgeport l3 to 6 with only three regulars playing the game. Bridgeport Central was also beaten 7 to 0 on Fritz's touchdown. The season closed with the team losing a heart breaking 6 to 0 defeat by Hartford on the muddy field. Despite this setback the season was a decided success. Captain Wojack playing end and half back led the scoring with 31 points, followed by Granski and Ivleotti with 18 apiece, Florkowski and Fritz with 6, Zaleski with 3, and Criffen with 2.

This proved to be the case, for the team turned in one of the best records ever compiled by a New Britain squad. The first five games found the team easily defeating Wilby, Weaver, and Lyman Hall but losing to the state championship Bristol team and the powerful Meriden Five. New Britain then started on a great winning streak, accomplishing no less than fourteen straight victories including two wins each over Hartford and Hillhouse, and, thereby, winning the Triangular League title for the second consecutive year. Other victories were over Meriden, Gilbert, Middletown, and Manchester, Bristol stopped the march with a close victory but New Britain qualified for the state championship Yale tournament with the third best record in the state. The first game at Yale was won by a 34 to 12 count but the Red and Gold was eliminated in the semi-finals by Bridgeport Central, due to bad luck and injuries to two stars, Louie Meotti and Henry Ferony. The season ended with a 38 to 34 win over the city champion Phantoms. 1 934 ' W U Page One Hundred Nineteen iifQsi'Q'W'i iii? to 'Wt .

However, these were overcome and now the League can look back with pride to view another definite step ahead in the growth of the League. lts social activities included two mass meetings, one in November and one in April, a successful Tea Dance at Christmas time, informal parties for representative board meetings, a fine Mothers' and Daughters' program in May, ending with a picnic for the girls in june. At the opening of the new semester in February a membership drive was held which was made different by the "Tag" idea. This drive doubled our membership of any previous semester. All this time the Welfare Committee was at work doing good and helping where it could. We wish to thank the faculty for the cooperation it has given the League, especially Miss lVIcAuley and lvliss Fox who have given of their time to make the League a success. We wish the League every success next year.

Ivlarch ushered in "Sally Lou" the "Laugh a Minute" comedy which more than fulfilled the expectations of one of the largest audiences the club has ever had. The Amphions closed a most eventful year by ably producing the riotous comedy Hjonesyn. This year's work of which we have every reason to be proud is due in a large measure to the able advice and coaching of Mrs. Amy C. Guilford, to whom we cannot render sufficient thanks The club wishes to extend its appreciation to the School Orchestra, the Art Department, and the Trade School for their kind cooperation. The growth of membership has been satisfactory and the interest and support on the part of the student body, the alumni, and friends has been an inspiration to those who have directed the clubs affairs.
