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 to come. 2 THE E ODLIS I9 4 Published by THE SENIOR CLASS OF NEW LONDON HIGH SCHOOL NEW LONDON, NEW HAMPSHIRE Editor-in-Chief Assistant Business Manager Assistant Production Manager Assistant Sales Manager Assistant Alumni Editor Sports Editors Art Editor Assistant Photography Editor News Editor Specialties Assistants Secretary Adviser NUMBER 7 JUNE, I954 STAFF Richard Funke Donald Robinson Gladys Edmunds Veda Whipple Marguerite Granger Vera Murray Sheila Moss Marguerite Granger Sylvia Kidder Beverly ,Wells, Howard Johnson Richard Funke Gladys Edmunds Donald Robinson Patricia Albee Elmer Roby John Adams, Arnold Stetson, Ronald Deno Marguerite Granger Miss Eleanor C. Parker 3 EDITCRIAL 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 called life.

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- selves. 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- dents. Sincerely yours, fg'l61fg Supt. of Schools 6 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 goals. The facultyjoin me in wishing you happiness in the years that lie ahead of you. Sincerely, Principal 7 DMIN ISTRATION School Board: Catherine T. Squires Frances W. Sawyer Dura P.

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.

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 Bloom." T" The combined chorus sang "Dry Bones" with some of the members playing various odd instruments, such as a bell, xylophone and rattles which helped make this one of the most popular numbers on the pro- gram.

The orchestra was the Y a c ht Club Orchestra from Claremont. The grand march was led by Marguerite Granger and Richard Funke. V 59'f II 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 ribbon-bedecked hair. 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 Gail or Veda washing Lin's hair with "Halo", 32 The Senior Play of I953- "STATE FAIR" , 25:2 --QE : - g fff guys gn!

Afall quiz program was won by the senior team. The Christmas Assembly featured a Stephen Benet radio play followed by the tree and party. The Webster Dictionary Company awarded pins to winners of a Spelling Bee. Perhaps one of the best as- semblies was the Talent Show. Several speakers addressed the school including: Col. BenC.Limb of Korea, Rev. MacFar- lane of the Civic League and Mr. Darling, Guidance Director of Northeastern Univer - sity.

The girls had two sets of uniforms and Miss Swain made ma- roon and grey pompoms to dress up the blouses. There were many new cheers this year, with a lot of peppy ac- tion. Among the newcomers were "What do you Say?"g "Fight Cheer"g "Twir1 my Turban"g and "We're on the Gym Floor". We allhope the cheer team will continue to improve in the future as it has done this year. 40 w N YQ 263 49 BASEBALL ay' FIRST ROW: O, Hayward, I. Clemons. SECOND ROW: F. Davis, I. Squires, W.

Your Vantine photographer knows how lighting ef- fects can be best used . . . How easily they can reflect your personality. Your Vantine 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 Vantine are important is attested to by the fact that over 300 schools and col- leges repeatedly entrust their photographic work to Vantine.
