Parker 3 EDITORIAL When we first realized early in the fall of 1951 that it was time to begin planning our Yearbook, that discovery suddenly brought home to all of us the fact that this year we were the class that would be graduating in June. We had watched other classes come and go, but we never really thought of ourselves as going. Now, suddenly we were faced with the prospect of a Senior Play, a Yearbook to produce, a Class Trip to plan for and a Commencement to think about. As we look back now, many memories come to mind. We hope that this yearbook will serve as a reminder of some of them. Ours is the 5th "Exodus" to be produced. We had fun reading the four others -- now it is our turn. As you go through the following pages, we hope you will enjoy reading them as much as we enjoyed putting them together. 4 i K9 X Bm -14 N so S x, Q? S S , ,. , To the Members of the Class of 1952 May I extend my congratulations to each of you at this im- portant time in your life. Graduation marks a turning point in your life, as you increas- ingly become more on your own and less dependent on others. The effectiveness of the training, both of the school and the home, will be measured in terms of how you adapt yourselves to new surroundings, whether it be higher education or ern- ployment. Let me stress the importance of getting along with others. Cooperation and a respect for the rights of others are fundamental to success. I would urge you to fully exercise your rights of citizenship. This privilege carries with it a responsibility to participate. You will have a part to play in determining domestic and international issues. A satisfactory solution to many of these depends upon an interested, upright and discerning citizenry. If I can help any of you now or in the future, I should be happy to do so. I wish each of you success in your endeavors. Sincerely Your s , Z.AWKf9ZZf ' Superintendent of Schools 6 To the members of the Class of 1952: You are approaching the date that has been foremost in your thoughtsifor a long time, but as this date comes closer, you find that'L'is necessary to say "Good-Bye" to old friends and familiar places. It is difficult to do this. Your plans, which have been made during the last few years, also are about to take a more definite shape. It is my hope that, in a small way at least, we at New London High School have helped you toward your goal. There will be times when it will seem easier "to throw in the sponge" than to keep plugging. You have shown us many times that when the going is the roughest, you have the ability to come through. Exercise these abilities in the future and I am sure you will attain a rich fulfillment of your plans. Sincerely, Principal ADMINISTRATICN School Board Dura P. Cr ockett Vinita L. Gay Catherine T .

I1 STUDENT COUNCILOF I952 FIRST ROW: G. Powell, J. Weber, R. Livingston, representative for teachers, G, Edmunds, M. Granger, J Hodges. SECOND ROW: A, Pitts, K. Allyn, R. Funke, J. Squires, O. Hayward. As last year, the Student Council consists of 10 members, a boy and girl from each class in high school and eighth grade. Class represent- atives were elected as follows: Seniors, George Edmunds and Jean Weber, Juniors, Janet Hodges and Glenn Powell, Sophomores, Marguerite Gran- ger and Richard Funkeg Freshmen, Arlene Fitts and James Squires. In the annual election run by the campaigning council, officers were elected by the casting of votes from grades 7-12. George Edmunds led the votes for President with Jean Weber as Vice President and Mar- guerite Granger holding the title of Secretary-Treasurer. The plan for the host and hostesses from high school is now back in schedule for the younger grades, just to remind them of their proper manners and such at the lunch tables. The annual High School Christmas Party, a Student Council Festivity, went into full swing with the decorative tree enfolded with a spray of cards, ornaments, purchased for the occasion that can be used yearly, not to mention the colorful array of gifts distributed by our Santa Claus none other the Kim Rich. Assemblies and dances are being planned for future dates. This Council and the ones in the future with the valuable aid of Mr. Livingston and the backing of everyone in school will prove to be a proud step in Democracy for the youth of NLHS. 12 M ,M W X, SW 'U Y fb fx?

I, a freshman arn a schmoo. t As such I must bown down to you. I come before you on my knees, And pray, "have mercy on me, please!" This was the terrorizing verse that confronted us that day we were slapped with green goo. The girls were clothed in burlap bags, their hair in rags, and feet swimming in men's boots, books enclosed in suit cases. The boys were in their night shirts and rubbers, crowned in bath- ing caps. All went tripping and kneeling up the street at noon between the rungs of a ladder. By night we thought we were getting used to the idea, but those soph- omores just dumped the tricks on us, from dancing in barrels to washing sneakerized feet. That was a night to remember -- night-"rnare", that is! 23 JUNIOR YEAR--PLAY AND PROM .Z During this helter-skelter junior year our little gang decided on a real dramatic adventure. One April evening Qbelieve it or notl we had a "Mad Breakfast". It was in the form of a play which we presented with the freshman and sophomore plays. It was a big night for every- body. In our play things became so confusin' when Mr. Long QDick Wryj came to study psychology at Betty Whipple's boardinghouse, under the impression that all the boarders were a little on the nutty side. Mr. Jones QVern Squiresj and his accomplice lLaura I-Iomanj helped to create this impression and when Mr. Long really saw the boarders, Mr. Roberts fKim Richj, Dixie Barselle, Dotty Jaster, Jane Lovering, Eliot Clemons, and Jean Weber fthe maidj, he became very distrubed, though at the conclusion he discovered that they were reasonably sane after all. The junior prom was the big social event of the year. The atmosphere was of "Springtime in the Park" with a starry sky, old fashioned street lamps, and flowers amid the green foliage. Messer's Orchestra provided the music. The Grand March was led by president, Vern Squires, and Norma Oksa. Refreshments were served from the booth in one corner of the park. 24 SENIOR YEAR--THE PLAY One of the highlights of senior year is always the pro- duction of the senior play and this year was no exception. On November Z we prouldy presented "Seventeenth Summer", a play based on the novel by Maureen Daly. The cast in- cluded Laura Homan as Angie, and George Edmunds as Jack, in the lead roles, ably supported by Dotty Jaster as Lorraine, Dotty Colburn as Margaret, Jane Lovering as Jane, Jean Weber as Margie, Phil Dow as Father, Betty Whipple as Mom, Janet Whitcher as Kitty, Kim Rich as Art, Vern Squires as Martin, Eliot Clemons as Fitz., Dick Wry as Tony, and Daila Ozolins as Rita. Other members of the class contributed greatly to the success of the performance by their work on tickets, business, posters, candy, scenery, lighting, make-up, pro- grams, sound effects. Prompting was well hand- led by Alberta Putney. ,mm-V. , 31 xii. 25 B V ca e rx e , -V 'W 'PWC ""eq on N90 S7 pu-+"' Q ' -mr 72 'iw Xe, QT kaurea beg-f wg-if 4175 L., s VVS ho'i'o1 :V t' 'V' 'if L V 'K , .A ' 21 , ff gi , J t ,wifi K IA 15 'bg M 00' sy.

The group sang three selections at the senior play and then started working on songs for the Christmas Cantata. The boys' and girls' glee clubs gave selections and there were several solos as well as com- bined selections from the "Shepherds Cantata". Other songs were "No Flower so Fair", "My Sheep Were Grazing", "Jesu Bambino", and "And the C1lory'. The main event of the year was the Spring Concert presented in March with the Sunapee glee club. The program consisted of six selections by the combined clubs, three by each club separately, three by the combined girls' choruses and three by the New London Boys' Chorus, three by the Sunapee Boys' Chorus, and two by the combined boys' chorus. The last musical event of the year was Pops Concert in May. As usual that was fun for everyone with some specialty numbers. Those representing the glee club at the All-State Festival were: Dorothy Colburn, Sopranog Laura Homan, Second Soprano, Richard Wry, Tenor, Kenneth Rich, First Bassg Vernon Squires, Second Bass. 32 ORCHESTRA FRONT ROW, left to right: A.

The New London Orchestra has been performing for four con- secutive years. Many new members have joined the orchestra this year to replace the seniors who left last June. The lack of experienced members made necessary more practicing rather than performing this year. However, the orchestra did play selections at the spring glee club concert. The twelve members of the orchestra are: Laura Homan, pianog Arlene Fitts, first violin, Karyl Allyn, first violin, Elizabeth Worthen, first violin, Flora Barton, fluteg Nancy Rowe, and Dennis Allyn, clarinet, Dale Prew, saxophoneg Jerry Allyn, John Woodward, Bob Bovely, and Lawrence Rowe, trumpet. 33 GIRLS' A D BOYS' GLEE CLUB FIRST ROW: I.

Several snappy numbers were given at Pops in May. 34 FIFTH ANNUAL ESSAY CONTEST Left to Right: J. Adams, L. l-Ioman, Mrs. Dean, D. Ozolins, K. Rich.

Our girls' team made the games exciting with the forwards' long shots and terrific support from the guards. Even though we will greatly miss the Seniors next year, we know the team will continue to move ahead. Two exciting games that thrilled everyone were the ones with Bristol and Simonds, very fast games though heart-breaking because we lost each by one point. Individual Point Sc or e s Lovering 2.30 Gay 19 Murray 91 Wells 4 Kidder 64 Homan 3 4A Girls receiving awards for participating in basketball are as follows: Dorothy Colburn, Sylvia Huntoon, Jane Lovering, Judy Gray, Vera Murray, Susie Kidder, Marguerite Granger, Beverly Wells, Eileen Gay, Gladys Edmunds, Daila Ozolins, Debra Lamson and Manager, Dorothy Jaster. 1951-52 SCHEDULE TEAM OPPONENT NEW LONDON Bristol 39 38 Enfield 14 31 Andover 23 32 Hopkinton 22 31 Sunapee 18 28 Henniker 39 30 Warner 38 37 Andover 38 43 Hopkinton 26 31 Henniker 34 24 Bristol 69 58 Warner 36 33 45 BASEBALL SEASON As this page went to press snow still covered the athletic field, but thoughts were beginning to turn once again toward baseball. Last year's team won four and lost four games during the regular season. We went to the baseball tournament where we were defeated by Warner. This year Coach Gates was faced with a rebuilding job, as a number of last year's varsity did not return. However with several up-and-com- ing freshmen and last year's returning varsity members, it is hoped that New London will have a successful season. 46 'S I Q 69 Q65 Q JP' rf x X7 X5 f I U ff0, C 5 5 E, ,Z N' M ff W X f ffl 1 XL!

Your Vantine photographer knows how lighting ef- fects can be best used . . . How easily they can reflect your personality. Your Yantine photographer knows best how to se- cure the sharply etched photograph your engraver de- sires of the important senior year . . . The victories of the athletic teams . . . The brilliance of social occa- sions . . . The Prom . . . The plays . . . The debates . . . The expression of everyday life on the campus. That personalized portraits by Yantine are important is attested to by the fact that over 300 schools and col- leges repeatedly entrust their photographic work to Vantine.
