We, the class of 1952 are proud to dedicate this year's

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
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.

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 ,
Superintendent of Schools
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.

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.

THE CLASS OF I952
1? W X
I Q, 3 'i
9 I0 ll 12
It was in the fall of 1949 that we entered NLHS to become the Class
of '52, though that seemed a faraway dream to us that first September.
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
That was a night to remember -- night-"rnare", that is!
JUNIOR YEAR--PLAY AND PROM
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
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.

The glee club this year has a goodly number with twenty-one
sopranos, thirteen altos, three tenors and eleven basses. 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

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

were "Little Papoose", "Like Barley Bending" and "Deep River".

The Boys' Glee Club becomes increasingly successful. Some wonder-
ful songs were on tap for the '52 season. The Spring Concert featured
one of the most fascinating ballads the club has ever presented, the "Dart-
mouth Winter Song". Several snappy numbers were given at Pops in May.

some new cheers and motions. The specialty this year was acro-

The season of '51 and '52 was one of the best years for hard
work, good spirit and basketball skill. 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.
