We, the Class of 1954 -- the first class to enter the new build-
ing -- dedicate our yearbook to New London Central School. From
the outside it seems to be a brick building with green lawns and
many trees. But to us who have been inside the building for grade
school and four wonderful years of high school there are memo -
ries attached to each tree that has been planted by classes in the
past. The red brick is a symbol of activities and classes in which
we have participated.
We hope that all future classes will come to have as many
happy memories as we have now stored up to treasure in the years

THE SENIOR CLASS OF NEW LONDON HIGH SCHOOL
NEW LONDON, NEW HAMPSHIRE
NUMBER 7 JUNE, I954
Beverly ,Wells, Howard Johnson

What is a high school? Is it brick and cin-
der-block walls, tile floors and hard, uncom-
fortable chairs? Is it aplace ofbooks and teach-
ers and an atmosphere of eternal, relentless
campaigns to impart knowledge to bored stu-
dents? Is it a place to spend the fleeting hours
between basketball games, plays, and dances?
Well, it is all of these things to a certain extent,
but moreover, it is a part of your life.
As we leave New London High School, we
have a feeling that the curtain has been drawn on
one act of our lives. We have tried in these few
pages of the Exodus to capturea portion of what
high school really is . . . the good and the bad
. . . and the actors and actresses on this stage

To the Members of the Graduating Class:
Congratulations to each of you as you gradu-
ate from New London High School. Your rec-
ords, both individually and as a class, will stand
as an example for those who follow.
Opportunities for a full and wholesome life
can be had by those of you willing to make the
necessary effort. Success will come largely in
the degree that you are willing to help your-
As you become alumni of New London High
School, may you always remain interested in its
welfare. The standards of a school are really
measured by the accomplishments of its gradu-
ates - not by the marks they received as stu-
Supt. of Schools
To the Members of the Class of 1954:
After what has seemed like four long years
in high school, you are suddenly faced with the
realization that it has been four short years. As
you go through life, you will find that time has a
tendency to shorten itself as you add years to
your span of life in much the same way.
It is up to you to make the most of the years
ahead of you, and there is no better way than to
allot your time carefully so as to include those
things that will make yours a better life. Each
of you will use many different methods to reach
the goals you have set for yourself, and you will
find that there will be many disappointments, but
if you learn by your mistakes, you need not
worry about the successful attainment of your
The facultyjoin me in wishing you happiness
in the years that lie ahead of you.

THE GLEE CLUBS
The Glee Club this year contains 24 sopranos, 14 altos, and 17
basses. The first pre sentation by the group was the Christmas Can-
tata. The main performance was at the Pops Concert on May 7.
Several members took part in the All-State Festival. Instead of a
Spring Concert, the Glee Club participated in a Regional Festival
at Hopkinton including a joint concert with Hopkinton, Warner and
Sunapee directed by Dr. Bratton of UNH.

POPS CONCERT I953
Pops Concert was made a big suc-
cess by the enthusiastic singing of
the combined chorus and the many
specialty acts. Both girls'andboys'
Glee Clubs gave fine performances.
Dickie Cushing and Jim Squires play-
ed their guitars with Dick Funke,
Leslie Enman and Jerry Allyn adding
the lyrics to "Too Old to Cut the Mus-
tard." Seven Junior and Senior girls
dida"take off"on the song, "Love in

such as a bell, xylophone and rattles

the future, as it has done in the past.

The decorations were grass

The orchestra was the

was led by Marguerite Granger
and Richard Funke.
1954 is initiated--From the multiple miniature pony-tails topped with
tin pans to the lone hip-boot, with men's long underwear and burlap bags
cinched by rope in between, the girls in the class of '54 were a sight!
The boys were equally picturesque with one high heel and ankle sox, a
girl's sweater, skirt and bathing suit top with a baby's bonnet covering
In this gala apparel the class of '54 earned their way through the
doors of NLHS by pulling the class of '53 uptown in a cart. The evening
was also embarrassing but lots of fun. We'll never forget John directing
