Che CLASS OF 195 6 '1937 I-IEN informed that we, the Eds, must proceed to waft our prolific pens over the parchment and create out of the eternal nothingness of ether, a fore-word for our beloved book, we nodded our already laden heads in the spontaneous but superHuous spirit of the "Everlasting Yea" CCarlyle, we are toldj, not realizing that upon our tender years we were taking a burden which is borne but once in the life of any man, It is written in medical jour- nals that no man, woman, or child is ever the same after giving of himself to such an accomplishment. Still, we vainly waved our quills in series after series of convoluted circles interspersed with the nicest collection of curves and figure eights that the most artistic heart could desire. Yet, as we sat feverishly challenging the power and veracity of Black Magic, waves of fatal foolishness flooded over and en- gulfed us, as we became cognisant of the ludicrousness and facetiousness of the situation. Imagine telling you that this was the Beehive, and the subject of your glance was its fore-word. One would hardly expect to find the fore- word of the Beehive in "Harpers Bazaar" or "Colliers," Still we had no results from our pen waving, We had but one tangible and concrete thing to do. We must convey our sincere thanks to the Art and Commercial Departments for the indispensable aid lent us by them in this work. The Beehive would not have been in your outstretched hands for many moons hence, had it not been for their zealous efforts. We also especially cite for honor and thanks, Mr. Sallee's private secretary, Miss Elsie Lotz. She was faithful, agreeable, and efficient, Whirling and twirling continues as we continue our attempts at conjuring, It seems that it is easier to pull rabbits out of hats than fore-words Cnot four wordsj out of the air. Getting down to "brass tacksn it looks as if we must go to work. But it is too late to tell you, we know not where to begin. It also follows that it would be dangerous to tell you we know not where to stop. Taking what we hope was not your last broad smile as a hint, we present you the 1937 model mirror. Take a look at yourselves. Page 5 5.

Holmes, after his thirty-one years of service in New Britain. lt is fitting that I Call your attention to the two dominant ideas that have characterized your schools under his administration: The schools in all their parts must serve to the utmost, the in- dividual child or youth according to his abilities and his needsg The abilities and needs of the child or youth are the abilities and needs of a living soul and can be served only in an environment that provides for life, for a rich, many-sided, industrious, happy and growing life, lt is also equally fitting that l appeal to you, as you approach and enter upon the duties of voters, that you resolve in your minds-and in your hearts- that you will do all in your power to assure to the coming generation an equally good and even better public education than you have enjoyed. With this appeal, there goes out to you all my heartiest desire that you may have the best that life affords. Genuinely yours, LOUIS P. SLADE May 28, 1937 Page I1 x 5 17, 14?

President of Class. DOROTHY ELIZABETH NELSON New Britain, Conn.

Amphion Club, Girls' League, Secretary of Graduating Class '37, FREDERICK GEORGE TYLER New Britain, Conn., "Fred" November l7, 1918 "A quiet mind is richer than a crown" "Fred", our quiet, dependable treasurer, has a smile for everyone and is a friend to all.

He's done well here and hopes to graduate right into Annapolis where he is sure to do well, Good Sailing, Fred, and iiDon't Give Up The Shipnl Class Treasurer , Tennis. KENNETH EDWIN NICHOLLS New Britain, Conn. i'Ken" December 13, l9l8 "Gone with the wind, but not forgotten" "Ken's" good nature and his genial smile have won him many friends during his three years at high school. For two years he was our class treasurer and now he is our Editor-in-Chief of the Beehive. Amateur Radio has been his main hobby and this, plus his interest in Math, should gain him rewards in the Electrical and Radio Engineering Held, in which he has chosen to study in college next fall.

"Anettie" April 5, 1920 'Consiancy of purpose is the secret of success" A bit of humor, intelligence, an actress and a good dancer, Mix them all together and you have "Anettie". "Anettie" is also a fine example of how to take responsibility. When any projects are to be done, she is always there to help. How we envy her ability to get high grades in her studies.

Council, Banquet Committee, Class Night HSE. RICHARD ERNEST BAEHR New Britain, Conn. i'Dick" june ll, 1919 "The man that loves and laughs must surely do well" There isa compelling, caressing power in "Dicks" baby blue eyes. The many young ladies of the Senior High School dote upon this young man, and the young man is also very found of being mothered, so where you see a crowd of girls encircling a very handsome young man, no doubt the young man will be Richard Ernest Baehr, but he is far from being a lady's man. ln fact, starched shirts and streaming ties never played a very large part in the daily attire. He is a very good student and a very likeable boy. His great ambition is to raise Greyhounds for pleasure and proHt. We hope he succeeds in a big way.

EMILY ROSE BEGAY New Britain, Conn, "Sunshine" September 4, 1919 "All good things which exist are the fruits of originality" A sunny disposition, a neat appearance, and a courteous manner have won Emily the title of a perfect lady. These qualities are only outshone by her scholastic standing. Emily enjoys silly movies, and would enjoy skating if she could stand on skates. Your aims are high, Emily, and we wish you luck as a future nurse. Girls' League. WILLIAM C. BERRY New Britain, Conn. "Straw" july 16, 1918 "Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet" Bill puts golf ahead of everything else and is one of the best golfers the high school has ever had. He always has a good word and a wise- crack that will relieve a tense situation and keep the game going smoothly. He just has to have that certain grin on his face or else we wouldn't think it was Bill. However, he certainly can dish it' out and take it. To be a professional golfer is his ambition, and here s to many holes-in-one, Bill! Delta Xi Fraternity, Golf 2, 3. RUBY WINIFRED BENGSTON New Britain, Conn.

Her interests lie in a certain doctor's office where she acts as an assistant. Ruby plans to attend some business college. lt's the business world for you, isn't it, Ruby? Heres to success!

PATRICK CHRISTIAN CAPITANIO New Britain, Conn. "Cappy" "All things are overcome by determination" "Pat", better known as "Cappy", isawell-built chap, both mentally and physically. He is a very good whistler, swimmer, and skater, but we wonder why he continually wears his coat in the classrooms when he boasts of swimming in icy ponds. Most of his spare moments are spent out at White Oak where there seems to be some sort of at- traction. "Cappy" plans to work before entering college in the fall, and to embark on a musical career.

"Dot" September 22, 1920 "Musical as is Apollcfs lute" Did you hear someone singing in a sweet soprano voice? lf it sounds good, it's Dorothy because she can sing well. Dorothy has become well liked because she has the ability to entertain. We suggest, Dorothy, that you give that voice of yours a chance and let someone else be secretary. Musical Club. FRANK GEORGE YINSHANIS New Britain, Conn. " Yinnyn February Z, 1917 'APrepared against all things" Frank, a triple star athlete, is very popular among his fellow stu- dents. Even though a quiet chap, he has participated in many ac- tivities. His ability to use his head and keep things running smoothly, have put him where he is in athletics today. "Yinny" intends to go to college in the fall and here's All-American honors to him! Chairman Promenade Committee, Football '34, '35, '36g Basket- ball '34, '35, Baseball '35g Delta Xi Fraternity. HARRY ZELDES New Britain, Conn. September 8, 1919 "Give me a problem, a great big problem" Harry would rather wrestle a problem in lvlath than eat, At that, we are putting it mildly. Last semester he was disappointed when he received a mere 98 supplementary mark. Such ambition will not be unfruitful, and we are confident that with his genius Harry will some- day make Einstein's calculations look like elementary arithmetic. Whats more, Harry excelled in French, English, and Latin. We know success will be his in everything, but don't forget us when you're famous, Harry. Chairman Motto Committee, Radio Club.

The Mid-Year Class of 1937 per PATRICK CAPITANIO Witnesses: Simone Simon David Windsor Maurice Rosenberg I' xxryfll fiel p I K ' . I 5 , 5 - cv?-'55 EARIED from study, I laid aside my books. Tomorrow I would take my last test in New Britain Senior High School. How the time had slipped by! Soon all the friends I had made during those three happy years would be scattered, each going his own way. I wondered what changes fifteen or twenty years would bring. just then a rap on the door aroused me from my thoughts. Opening the door slightly I saw a peculiar figure. 'iMay I come in?" a soft, pleasing voice asked. The light on my desk shining through the opening lit up the strangers face. I recognized my guest and threw the door wide open. It was Father Time! Too astonished to speak I stood silent. Father Time, realizing my bewilderment, asked no questions but quietly drew a key from his robe, opened the face of the clock on the table and started to set the time ahead. The years literally passed like seconds. In january, 1950, he stopped, and closed the clock. Without saying a word, he slipped quietly out. Feeling faint and com- pletely awe-stricken, I sat down in the rocker. Slowly the light faded to a peculiar hue, the objects in the room gradually disappeared. I found myself standing on a busy corner in the great metropolis, New Britain, Conn. Hearing a rustling noise I looked just in time to see Dorothy Kinkade, prosperous owner of the Old Maids Shop, alighting from her auto- gyro on her way to buy sweets at the Haffey-Jaffe-Taffey Shop. A screech from the opposite corner attracted my attention. john Remillet and his colleague Frank Dobek were having a hard time dragging their squawking brats from the day nursery past the fine display in Clark Cook's Toy Shop window. Their meek little nurse, Helen Potts, was busily wiping away the tears of Richard Sheehan jr. I stepped to the curb and found to my surprise that the big policeman who was beckoning to me to cross the street was Samuel Elia. I noticed a crowd farther down the street. Prompted by curiosity I made my way into the crowd. You could have knocked me over with a feather when I found the attraction was Helen Demko giving a soap-box oration, midst tears and ex- clamations, on her recent findings concerning the questions, "Why do we cry, yawn, etc." We hope Mr. Sheehan was one of the attentive crowd. Not being particularly interested in the subject I went on. Wearied by all this commotion I turned down a quiet side street. An elegant looking automobile parked in front of a large white house appealed Tl 3,71 I nf I ' it I I l P ' 4 gf , gf to me. just then Arthur Berson hurried down the steps of the house. I recognized him immediately and greeted him eagerly. I wondered if it were really he when he only smiled in response. Pondering over this I walked aimlessly on. I was brought out of the daze by a cheery "hello" I looked up to find a stocky, placid looking gentle- man. After a few seconds of hesitation I realized that it was Arnold Cze- chowicz. I-Ie told me that he was employed as a night watchman at Corbins and I gathered that that accounted for his rotundity. I ventured to ask of the whereabouts of Arthur Berson and told him of my supposed encounter with the latter. Arnold then informed me that Arthur was partaking in a silence campaign sponsored by the Anti-Noise Committee whose president was Lester Wiener. As it was still early afternoon and I had plenty of time, I decided to visit the opening exhibition at the Museum. I entered the beautiful building and imagine my surprise when I gazed up into the countenance ofjoseph Dornfield who was busily engaged in dusting the fixtures. I-Iearing the elevator man call 'igoing up" I hurried over to the elevator. The owner of the voice was joel Eshoo. A uniformed guide met me by the elevator as I stepped out on the second fioor. I immediately recognized him by his high-pitched voice. It was William Barrett who had sung in the men's glee club of N. B, I-I. S. He explained to me that he was patiently awaiting the result of his audition at the Metropolitan Opera Com- pany. Going down the hall I met Harold Lifshitz who had just returned from a trip to Africa. I-Ie told me that Frank Yinshanis was there searching high and low for his jungle princess, The guide pointed out the paintings by the famous Robert Unwin and the sculptor works of I-Ielen Gittleman. I was particularly interested in the large display of Heas collected by the well-known fleaologist, William Swensk, Upon leaving the museum a queer looking contraption attracted my attention. It was a trailer-cab pulled by a motorcycle which was stream- lined up to the minute. On the back of the trailer-cab was a sign which read, "Ride with Polycrates Menelaus Davanopoulas, the man with the longest name in the world. No extra charge," Strains of music from Central Park induced me to hasten in that direc- tion. just as I neared the park, I heard a voice ask, 'AWanna buy a flower, Mister?" Startled I turnedg sure enough it was Eva Brin. I really expected an Amphion ticket to accompany the flower but then I realized it was several years too late. When Eva had thanked me profusely for the tip I hurried over to the park. Quite a crowd had gathered. I nudged the person next to me and inquired as to what it was all about, I-Ie explained that Gertrude Luebeck had offered to lead the community sing and that this afternoon they were introducing Alex Rudy's latest collection of songs entitled, "Tin Pan Alley Melodies." It brought back memories when Gertrude announced that the proceeds from the sale of books were to be used for the "Glass Eye" fund. As darkness was falling fast I decided to take the bus back to the center. I was rather uneasy when I noticed that the irresponsbile driver seemed to think it his duty to wink and smile at all the fair lassies. Finally it dawned upon me that it was Richard Baehr still carrying on in his carefree manner. 4' ' . 5 ai I ' fr n I I ' J At the city I alighted at Ken's Bean I-Iole, On my way in I stopped at a news stand and bought a paper. Seated at the counter I ordered a simple meal and proceeded to read my paper. A small front page item told of the proposed trip of a certain Mrs. Vanderbilt, the former Annette Atwater of New Britain, Conn., who was planning a tour of Europe with her young daughter. The name Dorothy Herrmann attracted my attention. On reading the article I discovered that she has been fired from the famous troupe of chorus girls because of her impertinent attitude towards the director, Bill Edwards. The society column always proves interesting so I focused my attention upon it. There was a picture of a couple on their wedding trip to Bermuda. I looked at it and found the couple to be Fred Tyler and Dorothy Nelson. What a surprise! Next I ran across an announcement of the grand opening of Miss Margaret I-Iall's School of Etiquette. As the waiter came with my order I laid my paper aside. To my amazement the waiter was none other than Bill I-Iartman. My expression betrayed my thoughts and Bill ex- plained that after graduating from Annapolis he had decided he didn't like the navy and had jumped at the chance to work for Ken Nicholl's in his Bean I-Iole. Virginia Bodley was the cashier. I-Ie then asked if I realized that the editor of the paper I had been reading was an old high school friend, Eugene Lockett, Well, I was surprised! I-Ie also told me that Ray Toczko and Carl Nygren had collaborated and were making great fortune in their street clean- ing, junk dealing, and garbage collecting business, Marion Benjamin was running the trolley between I-Iartford and New Britain, This was all I could stand. Left alone with my meal I was too busy with thoughts to eat. Sud- denly the surroundings faded away and I found myself still stitting in the rocker in my room, tired and bewildered after my harrowing experience.

"Ray" September 2, 1919 MA man beloved, a man elect of men" Who would think that the twentieth century Romeo spent his leisure time playing the role of minister in the Amphion Club produc- tion. 'iRay", although a pleasing dresser, does not put too much faith in the statement, "Clothes make the man," He supplements his appearance with an active personality and a set of good marks. With a set-up like this, any fears for his success are surely unfounded. President 1937 Graduating Classg Amphion Club. EVELYN AUGUSTA RANGES New Britain, Conn. "Evey" February 25, 1920 "She moves a goddess, and she looks a queen" Evelyn is the first person we ever saw who lived twenty-eight hours in a twenty-four hour day. One would think that with such a variety of interests and accomplishments, Evelyn would have difficulty doing any one thing well. The fact is, she does have trouble doing but one thing and that is doing nothing. This most remarkable young lady does each and every task in a manner worthy of praise and emulation. Her dramatic abilities as proven by Amphion Club successes mark her as an ardent daughter of Thespis. We can do nothing under the circumstances but predict for this girl a grand and glorious future.

"Dutch" February 26, 1918 'Al'll woo her as the lion woos his brides" "Dutch" was born with a spoon in his hand instead of his mouth. 'Cow pasture pool,"-golf to you, holds "Dutch's" attention most of the year. i'Dutch" is holder of the City Championship in this none to easy game. ' CTake it from ye editorj. The most astounding thing is that he remains around school although he has had several offers of positions. Perhaps its because he is class-treasurer, or it may be due to a certain resident of East Street, Regardless of why he stays many of N. B. H. Sfs well-known "hackers" would do well to listen to 'iArt" tell a few of the finer points of that grand old game called A'golf." Class Treasurer. ADELINE LITKE New Britain, Conn. "Ad" june 15, 1919 "Light is the dance" Shes glamorous and over amorous and the first to display fashions newest. "Ad" is slim and small and trips around the building with an air of dignity stopping here and there to chat with this or that person-male or female. However, the Phi Sigma Post claims most of her attention. Dancing? 'iAd's" in her glory when shes on the floor waltzing to some romantic melody or trotting to some peppy ditty. Of course, 'iAd" believes her certain someone is theuonly one to make a dance complete. Schoolwork has had "Ads utmost concentration in the past and it can't help but bring hemluck in the future. f 1 V' 'P , . ' --f-i.:-uhh '- Class Secretary f,L2,' 33 Girls' League, Phi Sigma Sorority.

"Bill" january 15, 1919 "Deep versed in books, and shallow in himseU" For a picture of good nature personihed, we present to you "Bill" Albert. Tall, light and afraid of the women, we fear the day when he getsuthat way" about someone, for you know the old saying, "The bigger they are, the harder they fall." At present the aforesaid gentle- man is spending the greater part of his time studying, so we had best continue on our way, and let him at his studies stay. MARTHA ABRAHAMSON New Britain, Conn. September 1, 1919 "A silent face often has voice and words" Martha is that quiet peacefully demure young lady observed in the North Wing at most any hour of the day. Under that quiet demeanor, Martha hides a grand sense of humor and a great love of winter sports. An armful of books is often deceiving, but not in Martha's case for her graph cards reveal the wonderful truth. Mar- tha's sure to be the best of private secretarys if she keeps up the good work. BERNICE ADAMS New Britain, Conn. 'iBernie" March 9, 1919 'iTalking comes by nature, silence by wisdom" Folks, meet "Bernie" Adams, the envy of every "pee-wee" in school for, you see, "Bernie" stands 6 feet in her stocking feet. Talking seems to be iiBernie's" hobby but, nevertheless, everyone is enhanced by her sociable nature. Well, since she craves adventure, were send- ing her forth with the best of luck in meeting adventure around every COFHCF. LUCY ALBRO New Britain, Conn. i'Lu" August 16, 1920 'The pupil of impulse, itforced her along" Impulse! The mere suggestion of the word brings Lucy to mind. I.ucy's impulsiveness has sometimes carried her to the utmost depths of despair, but generosity has conquered impulsiveness. "And victory is mine," cried she. That generous nature has won her a score of friends. These two qualities, balancing each other throughout life will surely bring her success and the best of luck. CHARLES JOSEPH ALEX New Britain, Conn. September 24, 1919 " He must have iron nails that scratcheth with a bear" 'iNitroglycerin" is the nearest thing to this gentleman. Be care- ful how you shake him up, he is liable to explode. Short but powerful, "Al" is a bit shy when it comes to schoolwork, but not when it comes to fisticuffs. Page 62 i?"lI .

A'Red" is the first one home at noon from school, One would think he was glad to leave, the way he "ducks" out of that North Wing and i'cuts" for home. Maybe he's hungry, or perhaps he Hgures that the sooner he gets home the sooner he can come back. We wonder! EDNA MARTHA ALLEGRESSA New Britain, Conn. "Eddie" March 3, 1919 A' Her eyes with simple truth were stored" A mischievous look in her eyes denotes a sense of humor, hidden beneath her quiet manner. i'Eddie" takes her schoolwork oh, so seriously, and has very little time for the opposite sex, Her one im- portant hobby is dancing, and plenty of it. The very best of luck for continued happiness and success. ARLINE INGRID ANDERSON New Britain, Conn. "Polly" june 9, 1919 "What service was I to the world" Arline is an answer to a teachers prayer. She is an excellent student, has a pleasing personality and is just about A No. 1. Arline eagerly grasps every opportunity that is of an intellectual value, but superiority is just out of her line.

The "Lost and Found Department" has been kept from bankruptcy by i'El's" possessions which are left behind in her mad dashes about the school. Connecticut State College is Eleonor's next stop.

August 27, 1919 "Quiet, the most profitable of all things" Mix a mite of shyness and a mite of quiet with a love of art and music, and presto, Florence emerges, Being shy and quiet has kept her from being either the "belle of the ball," or the "Sirene of the foot- ball game," but it hasnt affected her scholastic standing in the least.

Seldom assuming a serious air, her company is a haven for those perplexed snuls seeking rest. She is not at all the bashfexl type, nor is she the stsxdiaus type, either. Rose manages to get good grades, however, and we are in- clined to believe that in some cases this must be due to her personality. The world will be hers if she keeps on smiling.

'Chien january 3, 1920 'She is so awfully clever" Virginia just isn't the type of girl who can be called anything as formal as Virginia. "Chic" just fits this out-of-door girl who prefers a tent to a house. Its a grand life "Chic," We do wish that she would spare us some of that "gray matter" that belongs to her. She is one of those brilliant girls who can play all night and then come to school the next morning all prepared for work. How does she manage? Good Luck and we'll probably see her teaching little girls how to play basketball in the future. Girls' League, junior College Club. MARY MARCIA SPEZIALE New Britain, Conn.

A hard working, ambitious career seeker, Mary refuses to give any Romeo a tumble but keeps right on working faithfully at shorthand. Oh, yes, Mary is an exceptionally fine stenographer. Through clear or stormy weather Mary is a loyal friend, and everyone appreciates her as a valuable contribution to society. Good luck to her and we do hope ambition won't run away with her.

Let's have the 'iLindy" again, Paul. MARGARET MARY TANGUAY New Britain, Conn. "Peg" September 11, 1918 "Modest dignity and calm content" That young lady strutting around the building with an air of dignity is no one else but Margaret. She is never rude or unpleasant, in fact, she is the model young lady of politeness, every mamma wishes she had her for her own. Her modesty and friendliness make her an indispensable friend. Margaret's ambition is to be an accountant, and some employer is going to be mighty lucky. Girls' League. MARY IRENE TIERNEY New Britain, Conn.

Plenty of success to her. HENRY ZABRENSKY New Britain, Conn. "Zebby" December 17, 1917 "A left winger that made a right turn" It took A'Zebby" a long time to make up his mind to become a machinist.

Class History E, THE graduates to be, had our first really permanent glimpse of our "splendid institution of learning," which is, of course, the New Britain Senior High School during the june 1934 graduation from the junior High Schools. During the summer there was a noticeable decrease in the population of New Britain as most of the boys and girls went on their very much earned vacation before assuming work in the higher institution of learning. For some of us the summer seemed to "drag" because we were eager to undertake our first venture into the Senior High School. The morning of September 10th dawned bright and clear. As of many years before our mothers were our alarm clocks, and they were the ones who spoke the words which made us come from "good old dream land" back to earth again. It was time to return to school. After cleaning, scrubbing, eating a breakfast we didn't taste, and a last minute cleaning up, we departed to meet our respective friends, and then proceeded nonchalantly to school, for at least we thought we appeared nonchalantj After minutes of walking we neared the beautiful building which we could see in the near distance. There was a great clamoring of voices, of ex- pressions of astonishment and of surprise. At first we were overcome by its greatness, its sturdy walls and of the ideals for which it stood. We were doubtful as to whether we had the ability, initiative and integrity to carry on those ideals that were left us by the preceding freshmen. "Freshies," that was the word used by the upper class to describe the newcomers to the school, but we took their "jokes" and "pranks" with good humor. As most of us came to this school to take part in athletics and social events and to get an education, we formed a combination that was hard to beat and the persons to whom we are responsible for making our first year enjoyable are our teachers, physical directors, and faculty advisors. We squared our shoulders, stood firmly on our feet, and feeling very con- fident we resolved to "do or die." As "confidence is the companion of success," we started the first part of our three year term by getting acquainted with our fellow students and members of the faculty who became our lifelong friends and advisors. Oh yes! we also had an election of class officers. A privilege that was given to all classes. The persons who were the choice of the i'freshies" were: Randall Gilpatrick, President, Evelyn Ranges, Vice-President, Adeline Litke, Secretary, and jack Meskill, Treasurer. The following September we found ourselves juniors. We had at last gained the "haven" of the junior Class, where we no longer had to suffer the humiliation reaped upon us by the upper class. We now went to school in the morning. All of us can remember the "hot" summer afternoons when our minds were on something else, instead of a hot, stuffy schoolroom, but our loyalty to the school and our resolution to "do or die" carried us through to our first goal, the junior Class. We now put on superior airs. As it is said "he who laughs last, laughs best," so we proceeded to get our revenge, and took it out on the incoming Nfreshiesf' Many habits were formed good and bad. Class-cutting was one of the bad ones but it didn't last, and it wasnt very' long before we were "on the carpet" before Mr. Slade, feeling ill at ease, and resolving never again to be a Victim of this embarrassing experience. Our athletic teams were making quite a name for themselves. ln fact under the mar!! i ' . t V vi jr K . , ,f -E I it VA W ,. capable leadership of Coach Shea, they were 'Qgoing to town." The people were thrilled when they witnessed our football team in action on Saturdays, and it was the aim of Coach Shea and the squad to bring the championship again to New Britain, ' Coach Shea's aim was true and we witnessed a championship eleven and the Waskowitz Trophy which was set proudly in its place in the show case. Art Neumann, the boy who was born with a golf stick in his hands, pulled his little trick out of the bag by winning the golf championship. Also under his capable leadership the golf squad won the Connecticut Inter-Scholastic Athletic Tournament which was held in Bridgeport. Our junior year passed very quickly and we found ourselves in the Senior Class. In other words we were the "big shots" of the school now. There was no upper class to tell us what to do and what not to do. We filled ourselves with laughter after watching the antics of the Freshmen, their uneasiness and shakiness of knees, a disease which we had overcome. Our football team proceeded to take the other teams into "camp" and they were elected to play the team of Miami High School in Miami, Florida. The boys were given a rowsing send-off by their parents and sweethearts. They did what was expected of them, that is, they "swamped" the Maimi team and brought home the "bacon" The day dawned when we were to elect officers, Then the results were announced. lt was found that Raymond Anderson was elected President, Evelyn Ranges, Vice-President, Adeline Litke, Secretary, and Arthur Neumann, Treasurer. Our days were numbered, we neared the eve of graduation. All the socials before graduation were about to be held. All of the credit for a fine banquet will go to the banquet committee for their splendid way of handling the affairs. Shirley Baehr was chairman, with the following members of the committee assisting her: Russell Bauer, Mary Chaponis, Thomas Hinchliffe, Margaret Remington and Richard Schroeder. The promenade committee was composed of the following members: Robert Ely, chairman, Alice Avery, Margaret Carlson, john Boyle, Paul Derail, and Marjorie Fleitzer. The class night committee worked tirelessly to make the last gathering before graduation a success. Wesley Ogle chairman, Eleanor Anderson, Margaret Judd, Edith Pascoe, Richard Stanford, and Norman Steinberg, deserve the credit for their line work in making our class night a success. The last and most important event in our school history was the gradua- tion from the Senior High School. This event was both a sad and a happy one, for it was the day upon which we were to leave our school, our beloved principal Mr. Slade and the members of the faculty, it was the day in our lives when we had reached the height of our ambition, Up till now it was our ambition to succeed in school, now it is our ambition to succeed in the business world, The graduating class extends to Miss Harvey and Miss Raby their very sincere thanks and appreciation of the Fine work they have done to make this, our graduation, a very memorable and successful one. To the graduates who are about to enter the world of opportunities, we extend this bit of philo- sophy: "We have reached the hilltop but yonder is the mountain." Y By Karl Mandl Adeline Litke ' l " ' fe 4- ' I I X. ff , I . lg , fx 1 f If TUIVIBLING, stalling, swaggering and falling, I pushed my way frantic- ally through the milling crowd to the base of the 'isupermala-gorgeous" mooring mast of the S. S. New Britain, the new ultra-modern zeppelin. This was 1953 and the gigantic, floating monster was about to start on its maiden voyage. Things may come and things may go, but "C-one With the Wind" was still going, and joy of joys, it had blown a ticket right up to my front door, who am I to refuse such an offer! into the new super-speed elevator, and was whisked to the staggered out of the elevator mumbling to the operator as mind bringing up my stomach on the next trip?" Seeing my face, the stewardess laughingly helped me to an easy I was flounced top of the mast. I I left, "Would you the pained look on chair in the main salon so that I could wait for the elevators return trip. As the stewardess seated me, I raised my grateful eyes to hers and what did greet my vision but the beautiful and familiar face of my former classmate "Betty" Remington, now risen to the rank of head stewardess on the S. S. New Britain. A few precious minutes were all that "Betty" could spare in reminiscing. As she left me with a cheery smile, I settled back into the depths of an easy chair for a period of relaxation. But did I say quiet? If I did I was mistaken for I was soon set upon by a breezy young reporter firing questions in machine gun style, and you should see our new machine gun! I gazed in bewilderment at this astonishing young man. I-Ie turned suddenly and glared at me, gulped and collapsed in his chair and whom did I see before me but Norman Steinberg the "Apple" of N, B. H. S. After windy salutations, he remarked, 'lSay kid, what is this, old home week T' I stared at him, questioning his meaning. I was soon enlightened, however, when he said, "Take a 'gander' at your fellow voyagers. Why all our 1937 class is here-well at least almost all," See theres Ted Stanley, president of the Stanley Works, driven from his journalistic career by family prejudices. Seated at the bar beside him is the glamorous Alice Avery, the world's famous connoisseur of non-alcoholic beverages, "Art" Neumann over there has just duplicated "Bobby"jones's golf feat of winning four major golf titles in one year. Seated in the corner is Shirley Prescher, the now famous creator of modern fashions." I shut my astonished mouth with a resounding bang, jumped up and flitted excitedly from one to the other chatting about old times and renewing old acquaintances. A'Apple", impatient to show me more, rushed me off to the captains quarters. We knocked at his door and a loud voice bellowed, "Stay out!" We barged in anyway, and bumped smack into "Bob" Ely commander of the zeppelin and our old l937 pal. After a moment of in- Page 152 as ,, I ' Y K ' I 1' credulity, we shook hands and again started talking about old times. i'I've and idea," says Ely, i'let's take a peek into this new television set and get a glimpse of what our old palsy-walsies are doing." 'Creatf' says Steinberg, "go to it, if you think they won't mind," After eliminating the squeaks and the squawks, Ely finally cleared the cloudy mist and unfolded before us a picture of the gay white-way, white as ever and still going strong. Gazing down Broadway we were taken aback at the mammouth size and brilliancy of a large blinking sign, shining with "Fran- cis Holt and Sixty Continental Cuties." Lights hardly smaller than those of the main attraction announced the personal appearance of the gum-chewing champion of the world, 'iBurt" Robinson. Inside the theatre we scanned the rows of the chorus and found in the ranks, "Peg" Carlson, Irene johnson, Elsa Hanson and Mae McKenna. ln the orchestra pit "Tom" Hinchliffe industriously "slaps that bass." The scene shifts to Washington. In one of the Senate Chambers 'Ray' Anderson, who is now speaker of the House, dictates Governmental corres- pondence to his confidential secretary, Evelyn Ranges, Adeline Litke, through the dint of her own perseverance and hard work, has superseded Fran- ces Perkins as Secretary of Labor. Our reverie was interrupted by a commotion outside the captains quar- ters. We glanced out and to our amazement saw a parade of dazzling manikins in a display of the lastest fashions. We saw in a moment that some of these manikins were Eleanor Anderson, Myrtle Buechner, Rita Cayer and Beatrice Anderson and behind them a handsome son of West Point was displaying what the well-dressed man should wear, 'twas none other than john Moses, Turning again to the television machine, we found that by focusing it on a remote island somewhere in the South Seas, we were able to bring into view Cleo Bray and "jackie" Noonan in their new found haven of peace, billing and cooing aloud with no restrictions. A twist of the dial and a court room appeared in view. It seems "Dave" Rubinoff is suing Harry Harotian for stealing the supremacy of the air and the mastery of the Stradivarius. Harry need have no fear for he is being defended by the A number 1 Hmouthpiecef' Marion Schuenemann. At this crucial point the first mate burst into the room with the news that a man in distress had been sighted below. To our surprise we found ourselves descending close to the surface of the water and by means of our life saving equipment we were able to rescue him from the grips of King Neptune, Ima- gine our astonishment when we discovered that the rescued party was none other than Charles Rowe who had been overwhelmed and nearly cast to a watery grave while attempting to wade the Atlantic, The interference over with we again commenced to peruse the scenery presented by our already invaluable informant. The present expanse includes a road in a desert in old Arizona. A peculiar car chugs merrily on its way with Elliott Stoddard in person at the wheel. You can't kill those 1930 Fords! In a semi-modern trailer or wheel barrow, which is tagging along behind are the rest of the Newington 'igangf' Standing in the middle of the road ex- ercising their thumbs in the general direction ofCalifornia, stand Shirley Baehr, Edith Pascoe, and Margaret Judd. Kind hearted Stoddard jams on the brakes and they're all California bound. The whirring of presses and clattering of noisy typewriters brings our attention to the screen before us where we see the helter skelter of a busy office and editorial rooms of a large New York newspaper. Reposing behind the editors desk is Rosemary Regan editing a feature story with the caption, "Man Bites Dog," while Elsie Lotz industriously pounds a typewriter com- posing her daily column, "Advice to the Love-lorn." Oh, for the life of a reporter! Evelyn Ranges Robert Ely 2,715 ll., zifl g. .

Now assembly Ends us gathered Listening to the Scriptures read Most attentively we hearken, With low-bowed and reverent head. Then to class-rooms creep we slowly With the pals we love so well Lingering, loitering at the threshold, Leaping at the signal bell. There with furtive notes and winning smiles Fair Cupid hurls his darts Then buds and blossoms tenderly Young love within our hearts. As Freshmen we were meek and shy And wonder 'mong us grew How those small heads of Seniors Could carry all they knew. We heard the Sophomores recite As well as they were able Slyly holding hands with cute young "gals" Far underneath the table. the Seniors We shall meet on life's great highway And remember with a sigh, The hopes that had their tender birth In dear New Britain High. We have kept the night light burning With a sudden zest for work, Cramming for tomorrow's finals Cursing Fun that made us shirk. We have mastered Burns and Milton We have conquered Browning, too, Scott and Shakespeare live immortal Uust to mention but a few.j We've explored the realms of Physics, History, Chemistry, and Math. We've been warned and told to follow Down the straight and narrow path. We've won laurels, too, in football Proud Miami had to bend We've smeared Bulkeley and New Haven Gone is Hartford with the wind. We have glimpsed tomorrows visions With our eager searching eyes, Curving rainbows lie before us At the end awaits our prize. Though we cannot read the future We can only live each day Persevering, hoping, trusting We shall find the hidden way. And now at last the time for parting Has become a present sorrow We may hope todays kind guidance Will prepare us for tomorrows. ELEONOR CRANE Page I5 ? I ' 5 5 x I l C I 4 YHI , ,PM 04?

I Amphion Club HE AMPHION Club has again paraded through a successful and happy year. For all the joyful occasions that we have experienced, we wish to sincerely thank our director Mrs. Guilford, who has so capably and willingly devoted her time to perfecting our productions. For the first half year, commencing September, 1936, those who held seats of honor in the club were Norman Steinberg as President, Bruce Anderson as Treasurer and Ethel Kosswig as Secretary. The last half year saw the following officers elected: President, Bruce Anderson, Treasurer, Gordon Raymond and Secretary, Evelyn Ranges. On December 11, we presented our first play of the season, a delightful three-act comedy entitled "Honor Bright." On March 18, 1937 we produced "The Ghost Bird" a mystery comedy in three acts. This play saw us sailing through with flying colors as we filled the audience with spectators and earned the largest profit since the depression. However, in the midst of our glory our spirits were dampened by the serious illness of two of our members and by the death of David Magnuson, one of the founders of the club. The club expressed its deep and sincere sympathy on these three occasions. We closed the season on May 21, by presenting a farce called "Look Whos Here" which introduced many of our newer members in their first roles. This play was well received by the public. The club now looks for- ward to the crowning event of the season-our annual picnic. The club wishes to take this opportunity to offer its grateful thanks to Mr. lvlirliani and the High School Orchestra for the exceptionally fine musical programs arranged for our plays, to Miss Olsson and the Art Department for the beautiful posters and to the teachers and students for their hearty co- operation.

Hillhouse was beaten 20 to 13. We retained the Waskowitz trophy for the third successive year, despite close competition. The "all-state" team held three Red and Gold luminaries, Remillet, Rydel, and Appisso. New Britain suffered its first defeat in three years bowing to Stamford, 7 to 6. They were also held to a scoreless tie by a scrappy Warren Harding eleven. The team had the honor and pleasure of being invited to play Miami High of Florida on Christmas Day. This was a fitting reward for the boys and they came through with a smashing victory. Thus ended a great season.

I come to end the Beehive, not to start it. The evil that pupils do lives after them, The good is oft indented in their skulls, So it has been with you. The noble teachers I-Iave told you that they would sign your graphs. If they did, it would be a miraculous thing, And miraculously they would have done it, Especially after looking at your tests, For they are an honorable group. I come to speak in this fare-welll You are my friends, CI hopej faithful and just to me But the teachers say they will not pass you, And they are an honorable group. You have had many tests to pass Whose marks did give you general honors, Cmaybej Does this in you seem lazy? When the supplementary has come, you have done it, Laziness is more deep-set than this Yet the teachers say you are lazy Cas usualj And they are an honorable group. Cbelieve it or notj You all will see that on the twenty-fifth A fine diploma will to you be given Which you will jump to grasp-you call this laziness? Yet the teachers say you are lazy And sure CYD, they are an honorable group. I am not here to disprove what the teachers speak, But I will fight it out along these lines if it Takes all summer Cthere goes my vacationj Even though those honorable ones have cried 'AYou shall not pass" But-if your work were done when you said 'twas done, 'tis well, Then 'twas done on time-if your assignment could be finished And its completion bring success and get From the official hand a signed diplomafthen this thing Would be the be-all and the end-all here, And here upon this eve of graduation We'll skip the class to come. But in such cases We still have judgment here, a false-signed graph. Then, hurried instruction, which after being carried home Returns to plague the teacher, ten units at a time. This sudden supernatural ambition Cannot be false, can it be real? If real, Why hath it given you omens of success Commencing in a burst of work. You had one chance To do the work which you delayed And this delay hath finished you, indeed. So if at last you find "Love's I.abor's Lost", Do not grieve But try, try, try, again, And so to you Farewell. Ye Ed , -'bp P -.'
