"Often 1 think of the beautiful town
That is seated by the sea 3
Often in thought go up and down
The pleasant streets of that dear old town,
And my youth comes back to me.
And a verse of a Lapland song
Is haunting my memory still:
'A boy's Will is the Wind's Will,
And the thoughts of youth are long, long' thoughts'."
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The publication of this twenty-first edition of The
Bulkeley Whaler coincides with the hundredth anni-
versary of the founding of Bulkeley School. In the
hundred years of its existence Bulkeley has so grown
in achievements and enrichments that a year of its
life can hardly be encompassed Within the pages of
However, the members of The 1949 Whaler Staff
have attempted to outline as completely as possible
the various aspects of school life. Through the media
of pictures and Written Words we have endeavored to
reflect the spirit and soul of Bulkeley and record
another chapter in its glorious history.

In the year of 1849 Mr. Leonard H. Bulkeley willed a sum of money totaling
about 325,000 to a group of trustees. The trustees were to allow the income
to accumulate to 2l550,000, at which time a lot was to be bought and a build-
ing was to be erected to provide free education to all male youths of New
London between the ages of twelve and twenty-one. This school was to be
named after the benefactor. The will also stated that remaining funds were
to be used to instruct the students in morals and such branches of learning
and science as prescribed by the trustees. The founder of Bulkeley pos-
sessed an apparent phobia of clerical influence for he specified: "My wish
is that no priest or clergyman be employed as a teacher in said school."
The board of trustees were given full power in the administrative duties
of the school and its properties. Any vacancies in the board were to be filled
by the vote of the remaining members.
The original edifice which now houses the main offices was erected in
1871. In the fall of' 1873 five students entered Bulkeley, four of whom
Bulkeley in 1881
At present Bulkeley has twenty teach-
ers and a student body of four hundred
boys. The enrollment reached its peak of
six hundred boys just previous to the
opening of Robert E. Fitch in Groton.
The original trustees named in the will
of Mr. Bulkeley were Messrs. Nathan
Belcher, William C. Crump, John P. C.
Mather, Henry P. Haven, and N. Shaw
Perkins. The present board includes
seven members: Messrs. Nathan Belch-
er, Arthur H. Shurts, Thomas E. Troland,
Frederick W. Edgerton, Samuel M. Pren-
tis, Charles B. Waller, and William C.
The original granite structure of the school was enlarged in the late
1890's with 511,000 donated by Mayor George F. Tinker. The building was
later enlarged again. In 1920 the trustees spent 390,000 on a second build-
ing housing an auditorium and additional classrooms. A contribution of
S100,000 by the city made possible the erection in 1934 of a third building
containing twelve classrooms and a gymnasium.
The original endowment has been increased by several generous gifts and
legacies. In addition to Mr. Tinker's gift, the school received 310,000 from
the estate of Mr. Asa Otis, 550,000 from the estate of Mr. Henry P. Haven
and S500 from the Richard H. Chappell estate. Mrs. Mary P. Clark and Mr.
Frank L. Palmer each donated five hundred dollars for the acquisition of
apparatus for the chemistry and physics laboratories.
At iirst only students of New London were allowed to attend Bulkeley.
Eventually out-of-towners were permitted admission with a tuition pay-
ment. Although the will stated that tuition should not be charged to city
youths, New London has financially aided the school ever since its incep-
tion. At the time Bulkeley superseded Bartlett School as the secondary
institution for boys, the fund for high school education was turned over to
the trustees. The city's iirst contribution was one thousand dollars whereas
at present the school receives over 590,000 from the city.
In the future the trustees plan to continue to provide the best possible
high school education to the boys of the New London area.

Work well thyself to counsel others clear,

SENIOR CLASS HISTGRY
The forty-niners entered Bulkeley as the shadows of the Second World
War were fading away. We were guided through our first uncertain days
by the three stalwarts of Freshman Hall: Mr. Silva, Mr. Peck, and Mr. Balen-
tine. One of the first projects which we were called upon to do as a class
was to elect officers. The successful candidates were: Robert McPhail,
Presidentg Philip Hale, Vice-President, and Van Keuren Jones, Secretary-
As Freshmen we put in a better-than-average showing in school activities.
Many of our number found places in the band, the athletic teams, and on the
As the leaves started to drop from the trees, we found it was again time
to drop into Bulkeley to start our Sophomore year. Yes, we were mighty
Sophomores-to the Freshmen we appeared to be wise, but we were looked
upon as fools by the upperclassmen. We worked in Mr. Ray Reed's class,
relaxed in Mr. Shay's class, and observed the entire situation at various
angles with Mr. Falconer.
Our political life brought forward the election of: Robert McPhail, Presi-
dentg George Olsen, Vice-President, Richard Lena, Treasurerg and Leon
And then came the school year of 1947-we were proud Juniors. We
investigated the dark corners of the science laboratories, found the witches
in Macbeth, and learned, among other things, that the first president of the
United States was George Washington.
Our members were now among the stars on the football team. Several
boys took part in dramatic activities and the more fortunate fellows were
elected to the National Honor Society. Among our social successes was the
Junior Prom. The boys who led us through that memorable year were:
Richard Lena, President, Lennart Bergeson, Vice-President, Leon Pierfede-
rici, Secretaryg and Richard Calkins, Treasurer.
In the fall of 1948 we were more than anxious to return to school to start
off our Senior year with a fresh slate. Helping us toward this goal were a
new administration and a new janitor. We found that we were now the
supreme rulers of the school. We dug right into our studies and activities.
In the field of politics we elected to office the following boys: Richard Lena,
Presidentg Robert McPhail, Vice-Presidentg Lennart Bergeson, Secretaryg
and Richard Calkins, Treasurer.
As Seniors, we see new worlds to conquer in the form of sciences, lan-
guages, and the knowledge of Mr. Orcutt.
Now, as we are about to set out on our voyage through life, we find that
heavy clouds are still hovering close to the earth. It is our hope that the
storm will pass over and that the sun will once again brightly shine on a
peaceful world. Under these conditions each and everyone of us would find
the sailing through life a simple journey.

After serving twenty-five years for vagrancy, I arrived in New London to find that
much had been changed. Glancing at the Guimont Gazette, pedalled by Holt, I found
that Niantic had seceded from the Union, led by the ace anarchist Calkins. Further
down the column I noticed that multimillionaire Stanners had again curbed the bottle
refund market. After reading that Manwaring was having the Rogoif Trucking Com-
pany move Manwaring Hill to Niantic, I went over to watch the public ceremony taking
place at City Hall. Scoutmaster Dan Driscoll was commending eagle scouts Shannon
and Young for their work in saving Facas from being mauled by Odlum.
Walking past the local bastille I was hailed by Davenport. He informed me that
he was doing time for taking samples home from his place of employment, The Last
National Piggy Bank. Congdon, the jailer, told me to be on the watch for Rothenberg,
the most fiendish scientist of the time. It was claimed that he raised amoebas which
he sold to Willie Smith and Ken Spargo. This calloused couple trained them for sale
Climbing into a cab driven by Andrew Smith, I started for dear old Bulkeley School.
On the way I listened to the "Linz Hour" with "Spike" Schultz and his "Seven Sloppy
Serenaders", featuring Tom Barry on the Kazoo. Unable to stand this musicide I tuned
into Gene Levy, the famous Irish tenor.
Arriving at the school I found that Headmaster Hendel was reprimanding Janitors
Loiacono and Nasser for not washing the windows. Babe Pierfederici, English IV
instructor, was giving Tom Baum a list of "-ine" words. Yanke, still taking Commercial
Law, told me that Shontell had recently paid some class dues. According to treasurer
Peterson he is now paid up until October, 1948.
Leaving in disgust I boarded the first Toohey trolley car that passed by. After paying
a counterfeit dime to Conductor Nick Korean, I stepped to the back of the car to
find Jack Sullivan placing a bet with bookmaker Levine.
Debarking from the bus at Filippetti's Flophouse, the residence of Dixon and Herren,
I watched a raid being conducted singlehandedly by officer V. K. Jones. This law
enforcement agent stated that the place was "nuttin but a front for Joe Giordano and
his crap games".
Dick Wade and Marty Blair, who had learned how to drive at Miller's Driving School,
offered to give me a lift. They advised me that the only person that Miller had been
unable to instruct was Barrett.
These boys dropped me off at Gigliotti's Garage where Denys Merriman and Frank
Vincent were trying to teach Eustis which end was "up". After observing this futile
attempt at education, I strolled over to Karamargin's Tavern, from which Phil Lee
and Tom Verity were leading George Lord who was quite intoxicated, as usual. Bouncer
Nurse looked at me in a harsh manner until I was recognized by bartender Lougiotis.
Gerard Corcoran, a busboy, explained that head cook Alan Driscoll was trying to
teach Brouillard and Highmore how to boil water without burning it. In the kitchen
Ballman and Hubbard were washing dishes under the direction of Keith Burgess, so
I left with garbage man McPhail. Together We watched oiiicer Martin Cohen arrest
Dick Lena for stealing apples from Kanabis' fruit stand.
Alan Sullivan and Dave Thomas invited meinto Steele's theater to view Goldstein's
production, "The Return of McSpadden", starring Jerry Gorman and Austin Joyce.
Passing the LaLima Tonsorial Parlor, from which hung a list of "demon" words that
were being perused by Donald Davidson, I met Remington Lewis. This kind-hearted
soul gave me a ride to the Ross Bowl to watch a chess tournament between those intel-
lectual giants, John Manavas and James Giordano. However, before I arrived I was
arrested by Detective Bergeson and sentenced by Magistrate Olsen to serve twenty-tive
years for violation of New London City Ordinance No. 50838293 sec. 8, fbi which states
that "anyone holding a similarity to one Francis X. Baldwin may be punished by law."

John is a reserved lad who has remained in the background for much

those who have come to know him, the fine qualities which he has dis-

Larry is noted for his assortment of cars ranging from a '49 blue
Lincoln to a 19? ? "whachamacallit." His escapades during and after
school hours have often amazed his fellow classmates. We feel sure
that "Red" will continue to spin merrily along 1ife's road in later years.

WILLIAM HOFFN ER
JUNIOR CLASS HISTGRY
In September, 1946, the present Junior Class entered Bulkeley. As timid,
bewildered Freshmen we vainly endeavored to dodge Mr. Canty's "magic
bullets." We welcomed our sojourns in Mr. Silva's room which offered us
some respite from these harbingers of ill will. Soon after snapping' out of
that first daze we elected Donald O'Mara, President, Norman McPhail, Vice-
President, and Clifford Carpentier, as Secretary-Treasurer.
In our Sophomore year, excitement was provided by Mr. Ray Reed and
humor was supplied by Mr. Shay. Our Sophomore executives were Fred
Ballestrini, President, John Hanrahan, Vice-Presidentg Saul Fern, Treas-
urer 3 and Avrum Novitch, Secretary. Several of our class members became
prominent scholastically and athletically.
This year We re-elected Fred Ballestrini as President, and Saul Fern as
Treasurer. Thomas Susi as Secretary and William Hoffner as Vice-President
rounded out the slate.
Upon meeting Mr. Pasquale we soon became horribly aware of our igno-
rance, and we are still astonished by our professor's vast fund of knowledge
as well as his never-ending flow of witticisms.
By now we consider ourselves truly a part of Bulkeley. With the Junior
Prom and other social events we are proving our worth. Also in athletics
the Junior Class is showing its versatility. In football, baseball, basketball,
track, and cross-country we were well represented on the starting teams.
The Junior Class is ready and eager to assume the roll of leaders in Bulke-
ley as soon as the Class of 1949 is graduated. We hope to profit from its
experiences in our attempt to carry on the noble traditions of the past cen-

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTCDRY
One year ago, we, the class of 1951, embarked upon our high school
careers. Although we were not prepared for such strange features of
Bulkeley's life as Mr. Peck's English course and Mr. Canty's precise sharp-
shooting, we soon fell into the swing and hum of school life.
Needing responsible leaders for our class, we chose the following ofiicers:
Richard Lindquist, Presidentg Richard Morgan, Vice-President, Eugene
King,'Secretary, and Eugene Brown, Treasurer.
As Freshmen we were justly proud of our athletic achievements. Under
the capable tutelage of Mr. Silva, our basketball team achieved the pinnacle
of success by compiling a record of thirteen consecutive victories.
Among our number, Mr. Pierce found much talent for the band and glee
club. At the end of the year several of our members received prizes for their
noble efforts in scholastic work.
Those who survived the tough exams, the faculty, and the dark corridors
of Freshman Hall, returned this year as important Sophomores. We were
completely relieved of our importance by Mr. Ray Reed and his English
homework. We are now struggling through figures with Mr. Falconer, and
learning the mysteries of tapeworms with Mr. Flood Reed.
Our ofiicers for this year are: Richard Lindquist, President, Larry Shay,
Vice-President, Robert J. Sullivan, Secretary, and Arthur Quimby, Treas-
As Sophomores we have gained greater recognition as a class in the ath-
letic, scholastic, and social aspects of school life.
Having successfully completed the first half of our high school studies,
we are now looking forward to our remaining two years when we shall
proudly call ourselves Bulkeley upperclassmen.

FRESHMAN CLASS HISTCJRY
If an upperclassman were to walk into the Bulkeley auditorium on the
morning of September 8, 1948, he would have found himself in the midst
of a large group of small boys-the Class of 1952. Shortly after entering
Bulkeley for the first time we became familiar with each other, became
acquainted with the different rooms of the school buildings, and most im-
portant of all, became members of the great, century-old Bulkeley family.
Before long we were called upon to nominate and elect a slate of officers
to lead us through our first year. Successful aspirants for these ofiices were:
Robert Sinagra, President: John Malone, Vice-President, Thomas Mc-
Enaney, Secretary 3 and Paul Grohocki, Treasurer.
At the football rallies we were proud of our contribution to the spirit of
the student body. Just as eagerly as We entered into this particular activity,
we joined the various organizations Within the school. Our class was also
well-represented in athletic and social functions.
Mr. Silva's call for Freshman basketball candidates brought out half of
our members. The keen competition for the team assured us of a fine season
We, the class of 1952, are proud of Bulkeley School, proud it is our Alma
Mater. The classes of the past century have set extremely high standards
for us to maintain. It is our deepest desire to better them during our four
year stay at Bulkeley.

Bulkeley .,....,,.,........,................. 19 Fitch ................................................ 14
The 1948 edition of the Bulkeley football team was a for-
midable outfit which did not find itself until midway through
the season. When the club attained its true strength it was
able to gain a tie for the Eastern Connecticut Conference
In a seesawing conference opener, Bulkeley went down
before Stonington to the tune of 7-0. With neither team seri-
ously threatening, the first period ended in a scoreless tie.
However, late in the second quarter Bulkeley was forced to
kick from its own eighteen yard line. As a result of a poor
pass from center, the Bengal kicker, Charlie Facas, was
smothered on the seven yard strip by a host of Stonington
linemen. On the next play, Gerry McKenna, Bear quarter-
back, rifled a fiat pass to Jim Watson, who stepped unmolest-
ed into the end zone for the decisive marker. Bill Manwaring
and George Scacciaferro starred in
the Bengal forward wall, while
"Archie" Thompson provided most
of the Tiger offensive punch.
In their second encounter, the
Bengals ran up against a New Ha-
ven Hillhouse eleven, led by bril-
liant Joe Johnson. The Orange and
Black forces came out on the short
end of a 47-12 count. Captain John-
son gave one of the most sparkling
displays of individual football ever
seen in Connecticut as he scored
five touchdowns while handling the
ball only seven times. Both of
Bulkeley's tallies came in the final
stanza. Co-Captain George Olsen
plowed over from the one yard line
Coach. Bill O'B1'i0n
on a fourth down play, and soon afterwards, Bob Eldridge

In its initial home game, a scrappy Bulkeley outfit was
defeated 6-0 by highly-touted Hartford Public. Hartford,
outplayed in the first half, came back in the third stanza to
score the only touchdown of the day on a long pass from
Eugene Bergan to Melvin Holland. The game was a heart-
breaker for Bulkeley to lose, since the Orange and Black
, squad held the upper hand for nearly the entire contest.
The Bengals received some excellent defensive play from
i H H - Co-Captain John Manavas and Bill Hoffner as backer-ups,
and the Bengal front line showed spirit and ability in halt-

Bulkeley dropped its fourth straight encounter of the season
to a fast New Britain team by the score of 25-0. New Britain
scored twelve points in the first half on the excellent pass-
receiving of end Larry Klett. In the second half the teams
battled evenly until the closing stages of' the game when New
Britain tallied twice on interceptions of Tiger desperation
passes to put the game on ice.
Striking the win column for the first time, Bulkeley topped
Fitch, 19-14. The Bengals capitalized on three breaks to bring
about their victory. Soon after the opening kick-off Bulkeley
recovered a Fitch fumble on the Tanager's forty-eight yard line.
Eldridge and Thompson shared in carrying the ball deep into
Fitch territory with Thompson hitting paydirt from ten yards
out. Immediately after the next kick-off, Co-Captain George
Olsen snatched a Fitch aerial on their forty-three yard line and
raced the remaining distance to the goal to give Bulkeley a
13-0 edge with the game still in its first few minutes of play.
Following this, Norman Tedford, Tanager passer, faded back to
, his own fourteen yard line and flipped a long touchdown heave
A to Larry Johnson. Fitch then passed successfully for the extra
point to make the count 13-7. In the second quarter, Fitch tal-
lied again, driving forty-five yards to score as Cook sneaked
over from the one yard line. The Tanagers converted, thus
GEORGE OLSEN gaining the lead, 14-13. In the final stanza, Bulkeley recovered
C0'Ca1ffaf'l a Fitch fumble twenty-five yards from the goal. Eldridge and
Thompson negotiated the remaining distance, with Thompson scoring the clincher on a five
yard off-tackle sprint.
Bulkeley continued its upward trend by handily defeating the Windham Whippets, 19-6.
In the first period, Archie Thompson climaxed a 65 yard touchdown drive with a seven
yard jaunt into the end zone. However, on the following kickoff, Gene Vadnais, Windham
Bob Eldridge Willard Griffith George Scaccriafewo Bob McPhail
scatback, squirmed and twisted his way to the Tiger twenty-
five yard line. Four plays later the Whippets crossed the goal line
for their only score of the afternoon. Thereafter, Don Burke,
a substitute Tiger back, took the situation into his own hands.
He scored twice on end sweeps to provide the decisive margin
In Bulkeley's long rivalry with Chapman Tech, there has
probably been no game that the Orange and Black forces de-
sired to win more than the 1948 encounter. Before the game
rumors flew around the Bulkeley camp that the powerful Tech
eleven was determined to win by at least four or five touch-
downs. However, this was not the case. In typical Bulkeley-
Tech fashion, the teams battled evenly through the entire
game. However, in the second stanza Charlie Facas, Bulkeley
tackle, pulled out of the line to punt from his own twenty-three.
He got off a beautiful, spiraling kick which rolled all the way
to the Tech twelve. On the next play, a Tech player was caught
clipping on the fourteen yard line and Bulkeley accepted the I
penalty which pushed the Huskies back to the one. There, Hank I
Secchiaroli, Tech quarterback, elected to kick from deep in his
own end zone. As a result of a bad pass from center, he stepped
out of bounds and committed an automatic safety to give
Bulkeley the victory, 2-0. Charlie Facas punted the Orange and JOHN MANAVAS
Black out of danger time and time again. The Tiger forward C0'CaPfWl
wall did an outstanding job as they completely stopped the hard-charging Tech backs.
In their last game of the season, the Bulkeley squad traveled to the Rose City where they
played a scoreless tie with a scrappy Norwich club. The teams were very evenly matched
and each had good opportunities to score. Twice Bulkeley drove inside the Wildcat's ten
yard line only to be stopped by a veritable stone wall. Norwich also came within striking

distance of a touchdown but failed. Most of the glory of the game went to the linemen as
both forward walls functioned with perfection.
This game concluded the schoolboy football careers of the following Bulkeley players:
Co-Captains John Manavas and George Olsen, Robert McPhail, Charles Facas, Joseph
Shannon, Daniel Driscoll, Richard Wade, Charles Gigliotti, William Manwaring, Socrates
Synodi, George Scacciaferro, Willard Griffith, George Peterson, Gerard Corcoran, Alan

The 1947-48 edition of the Bulkeley basketball team was one of
the better outfits in the school's court history. Losing only 6 out of
18 contests during the regular season, they qualified for the State
Tournament. However, in the initial game in the tournament the
Tigers were defeated by second-ceded Bridgeport Central. The team
was very ably captained by its two versatile guards, Bill Burke and
The Tigers started the season in a rip-roaring fashion by drubbing
Putnam Trade, 62-32. The Putnam outfit was no match for the Ben-
gals, as Bill O'Brien used every player on the bench. Hubie Bellefieur
netted 18 points to lead Tiger scorers, and Bob Sullivan, Sophomore
forward, followed with 17.
The Bengals next traveled to New Britain, where they lost a 46-42
heartbreaker to the Golden Hurricane. With both teams playing a
spirited and aggressive style of basketball, the final outcome was
uncertain until the final seconds of play. Bob Stevens was high man
for the Bengals with 14 points.
Still smarting from their wounds received in New Britain, the
Tigers dropped a 36-32 decision to Hillhouse. This was a nip and tuck
affair until the final 40 seconds. Bulkeley's defense then seemed to
collapse, allowing Hillhouse to score two baskets in quick succession.
Bill Burke starred for the Bengals, as he paced the scorers with nine
points and held Hillhouse's outstanding All-State forward, Bob
Saulsbury, to an evening's total of two points.
BILL BURKE Striking the win column once again, the Bengals opened their
defense of the Eastern Connecticut Conference Championship by
whipping Fitch, 46-24. Tony Ramus topped the Bengal scorers with 11 points.
Seeking their second straight conference victory, the Tigers journeyed to Norwich where
they edged out the Wildcats, 48-46, on Bob Sullivan's field goal with seventeen seconds of
playing time remaining. Bellefleur, Sullivan and Stevens were high scorers for the Bengals
with 15, 11, and 10 points respectively.
Hubie Bellefleuxr Bob Stevens Joe Sawicki Bob Smith
In their third straight conference win, the Tigers walloped the
Windham Whippets, 51-26, to take over the league lead. Again Belle-
fieur, with 14 points, and Sullivan, with 11, took the scoring honors.
The Bulkeley squad then jaunted to Stonington in quest of their
fourth conference victory, and defeated the Bears handily, 49-38.
Bulkeley, paced by Hubie Bellefieur, who hooped 16 points, outplayed
the Bears all the way to chalk up their sixth victory of the season.
In their next encounter the Bengals emerged victorious over their
home-town rival, Chapman Tech, to the tune of 36-25. The Tigers
held a safe lead throughout the contest, as their strong defense lim-
ited the Huskies to four field goals in the first three stanzas. Bob
Stevens, Bengal forward, was the only man on either team to hit the
double figures, as he spearheaded the Tiger attack with ten points.
On the road again, the Tigers traveled to New Haven where their
winning streak was snapped at six games as they were trimmed by
Hillhouse, 45-28. The O'Brienmen, although staging a brilliant rally
in the late stages of the game, definitely had an off-night in shooting.
The scoring of both teams was evenly divided among the players.
Regaining the win column, an inspired Bulkeley quintet downed
the Bassick Lions, 31-26. The game was a defensive struggle from
start to finish, with Bulkeley jumping to an early lead and then twice
fighting off Bassick rallies by netting timely field goals. Bob Stevens
was the individual star of the game, as he took high scoring honors
with 14 points.
For their sixth straight conference victory the Tigers trounced
Fitch, 44-18. This triumph was characterized by Bulkeley's fine
TONY RAM US
defensive play, as they limited the Tanagers to six field goals throughout the contest.
Stevens again led the Bengal offense with 22 tallies.
In their next encounter Bulkeley conquered Windham in the last 40 seconds of play, 47-44.
Hubie Bellefieur contributed three free throws in the final seconds of the game to provide
the margin of victory. Stevens and Bellefleur paced the Bengal scorers with 16 and 15 points
Lennie Bergcson Bob Eustis George Olsen
Suffering their first conference loss, the Bengals bowed before Norwich, 42-39, in a
closely contested battle. This defeat brought to an end Bulkeley's twenty-four game win-
ning streak in Eastern Connecticut Conference competition. Ted Alex was the big gun for
the Wildcats with 12 points, and Hubie Bellefleur was the power in the Bulkeley machine,
as he connected for 16 tallies.
Bulkeley regained its winning ways by posting a 53-38 victory over Tech. Bellefleur with
16 points and Bergeson with 10 points were high men for the Tigers.
Bulkeley then journeyed to the Boston Arena, where Lennie Bergeson's one hand pivot
shot in the overtime period gave the Bengals a 35-33 win over Worchester Trade of Massa-
In their final game of the regular season the Bengals, seeking a tie for the conference
championship, were upset by a hard-fighting Stonington five, 36-32. Bulkeley's defeat
enabled Norwich to capture the championship. Bellefleur was high man for Bulkeley with
In its initial game of the CIAC State Tournament playdowns, Bulkeley lost to Bridgeport
Central in an overtime game, 53-48. Although underdogs, the Tigers fought all the way
only to be outscored in the extra period. Co-Captain Tony Ramus played a stellar game at
his forward post, while leading the Bengal offense with 15 points.
Members of the squad lost by graduation were Co-Captains Bill Burke and Tony Ramus,
Bob Stevens, Joe Sawicki, Don Shepherd, and Hubie Bellefieur.
The student manager was Bill Parker.

Bulkeley's 1948 baseball team did not attain the height of pre-season expectations.
Although the Tigers finished in a tie for last place in the conference race, they were a more
potent team than this record would indicate. They afforded stiff opposition to all conference
foes, refusing to go down without a fight.
The Tigers' opening contest Was a fourteen inning affair in which they managed to eke
out an 8-7 victory over the Alumni behind the pitching of Tony Ramus, Charlie Dyer, and
Kenny Spargo. The varsity cashed in on five hits and several breaks to bring about the
In their second contest, the Bengals were routed 14-5 by a hard-hitting, good-fielding
Fitch nine. Don Taylor, Fitch moundsman, spun a five-hitter while striking out ten. Ken
Spargo, the Bulkeley hurler, turned in a five-hit performance, but his teammates came up
with thirteen errors to more than offset his creditable pitching.
Bulkeley and Tech staged one of the "sloppiest" baseball marathons ever played at
Mercer Field, with Tech coming out on the long end of a 12-10 count. This game was marked
by 15 walks, 8 hit batsmen, and 10 errors. Butch McGowan was the winning pitcher, while
Tony Ramus suffered the loss for the Bengals.
In their fourth encounter, the Tigers chalked up their first victory in scholastic compe-
tition by posting a 5-3 decision over Admiral Billard behind the five-hit pitching of Charlie
Dyer. Leading the Bengal offense Were Dick Calkins, Leon Pierfederici, Bill Burke, and
Bob Smith, who each collected two safeties.
The Tigers then traveled to the Rose City, where they suffered a 5-4 setback at the hands
of Norwich Free Academy. The Academy, behind the relief stint of Ted Alex, in which he
fanned seven, won the game in the last of the ninth on a single by pinch-hitter Peter Cou-
ture. Ken Spargo, who relieved Charlie Dyer in the last of the fifth, was the losing pitcher.
Then the Bengals journeyed to Stonington, where they routed the Bears to a tune of 12-5
behind the excellent relief Work of Charlie Dyer. Van Natta, Pierfederici, and Eldridge each
connected for two safeties to lead the Tigers to their first conference victory of the season.
In their next encounter, the Bengals ran up against Howard "Ducky" Oldershaw, who
spun a phenomenal no-hit, no-run, 5-0 shutout for the,Windham Whippets. Oldershaw's
victory was the first no-hitter in conference history. In accomplishing this feat, he walked
six While striking out thirteen. Tony Ramus hurled a four-hitter for the losing cause.
Bill Burke Jim Van Natta Bob Smith Charlie Dyer
Striking the win column once again, Bulkeley swept the
series with Admiral Billard by posting a 9-5 decision behind
the chucking of starting pitcher Ken Spargo and relief pitcher
Charlie Dyer. Dick Calkins spearheaded the Bengal attack with
three hits in six trips to the plate.
Returning home the Tigers earned an even split with Nor-
wich by nosing out the Wildcats 3-2 behind the three-hit twirl-
ing of Tony Rarnus. Pierfederici, who led the Bengal attack
with two safeties, also scored the winning run on an error by
Dick Marion, the Wildcat third sacker.
Stonington gained an even split on the season's series with
the Bengals by taking a 6-2 decision behind the six and two-
thirds innings of no-hit relief work turned in by Jim O'Neil.
Tiger batsmen altogether collected only four hits, while Char-
lie Dyer yielded seven safeties.
The next game resembled a Hsandlot farce" rather than a
high school baseball game as Fitch routed Bulkeley 20-1 behind
the five-hit pitching of their freshman hurler, Norman Tedford.
Ramus, Spargo, and Burke were victims of this slaughter as
they allotted a total of 13 hits and 14 bases on balls to Tanager
In their next encounter, the Tigers could collect only three
hits off Tech hurler, Ed Funk, and went down to a 3-1 decision.
Charlie Dyer suffered the loss for the Bengals.
In the final game of the season, Windham's "Ducky" Older-
shaw once again conquered the Bengals. This time he spun a
masterful three-hit, 8-0 shutout. Ken Spargo went the distance
for the losers.
Seniors playing their last game were: Jim Van Natta, Bill
Burke, Bob Stevens, Dave Blodgett, and Tony Ramus.
Dick Calkins and Leon Pierfederici, the offensive sparkplugs
of the team, were elected Co-Captains for the 1949 season.
The student managers were John Johl and Bill Hume.

BULKELEY ATHLETIC, ASSOCIATION
Evidence that noticeable changes in
interscholastic athletic policy will de-
velop within the very near future is
being studied by officials of the Bulke-
ley Athletic Association. Primarily
the change will come via stricter
regulations from state interscholastic
conferences which, even now, are ad-
vocating a more widespread program
of interclass and intramural sports.
Here at Bulkeley such sports have
held an important part in our athletic
program for a decade, and with results
deemed successful it is a certainty
that such a policy will be continued,
perhaps even on a broader basis. Thus
Bulkeley already has a firm founda-
tion in meeting whatever changes
On the interscholastic front, how- JOHN K. BALENTINE
GVGT, there is 3. trend at Bulkeley Faculty Manager of Athletics
toward a return to "our own class".
School officials point out that the wartime era of Bulkeley prosperity in
athletics both on a won and lost basis and financially, has naturally been
drawing to a close, and our "big time" competitors, more sorely hit by
selective service and wartime employment, are gradually returning to their
normal places at the top of the standings. As a result the immediate task
is to select our interscholastic program carefully, always competing just a
bit above our class, but never moving so far out that the burden will fall
upon the athletes of our undermanned squads.
It is also the intent of the Association to continue its fine public relations
with city recreation groups, with a particular aim toward extending our
facilities to those athletic programs under sponsorship of community ofii-
cials. We refer especially to our part in inaugurating basketball in the
Recreation Hall at Ocean Beach Park and in providing gymnasium time for
the Y.A.M. basketball leagues. Even now the Association is working closely
with City Recreation Committee heads on a plan to provide reflectors for
iioodlight equipment at Mercer Field.
In summary, Bulkeley students, their friends, parents, and our alumni
may rest assured that "education in sports" is being provided within the
school and extended into the community.

The 1948 track season was both long and exciting.
It included four meets within Eastern Connecticut
Conference competition, the indoor and outdoor State
Meets, the New England Meet, and the Connecticut
Late in April, the Tiger trackmen traveled to New
Haven where they competed against the best Class
A squads in the state. The only Bengal point scorer
was George Terry, Bulkeley's great distance runner,
Who won the mile in four minutes and forty-two sec-
onds. However, this was rather slow time for the
speedster as he jogged along without any serious
contenders. In the unofficial standings Bulkeley took
seventh place with a total of five points.
Next the Orange and Black squad journeyed to
Storrs for the Connecticut Relays. In this meet
Bulkeley copped first place in one event and third in
another. The two-mile relay was taken with surpris-
ing ease by Bill Crandall, John Kelley, Francis Terry,
and George Terry. The first three runners gave a
thirty-foot edge to anchorman George Terry, who
outclassed the field to win going away. Bulkeley also
placed in the high jump as Carl Small tied for third
place in a field of seventy-five with a leap of five feet,
two inches. No team scores were planned for this
meet, each event being a separate unit.
Malcolm G. Gfreenaway
In its first taste of conference competition, Bulkeley was the decisive
victor in a triangular meet with Billard and Stonington. George Terry was
the individual star of the day as he compiled thirteen points in taking firsts
in the 440 and 880 and finishing behind teammate John Kelley in the mile.
At the conclusion of the afternoon's events Bulkeley had gathered 61 points
to 36 for Billard and 29 for Stonington.
In the next triangular meet Norwich, with a grand total of 69W points,
routed Bulkeley and Chapman Tech. The Wildcats' victory was mainly a
result of their strength in the field events. Individual honors of the meet
were shared by Curt Shellman of Tech and George Terry of Bulkeley. Shell-
man collected firsts in the 100 and 220 yard dashes and finished second in
the broad-jump for a total of thirteen points. Terry matched this perform-
ance with first in the 880 and mile runs and a second in the 440.
In their only dual meet of the season, the Bulkeley track team scored an
easy victory over Chapman Tech, 7215 to 2615. George Terry and Charlie
Gigliotti took scoring honors for the Bengals. The brilliant Tiger distance
runner led the field in the 440 and the mile and Hnished in a triple tie in the
half-mile with two teammates. Gigliotti captured the shot put and the discus
and was listed second in the javelin.
Bulkeley entered the Conference Meet with high hopes of upsetting
favored Norwich. However, the Wildcats, who showed unexpected strength
in the track events and outclassed the league in the weights and jumps,
compiled a grand total of 65 points against Bulkeley with 29 points. The
other entries were: Chapman Tech 19, Fitch 14, and Stonington last with
For the second successive year George Terry and John Kelley staged a
one-two finish in the mile event of the Connecticut Outdoor Championship
Meet. These two distance runners were the only Bengal scorers.
Bulkeley placed two men, George Terry and John Kelley, on the team
which represented Connecticut in the New England Interscholastic Track
and Field Meet. However, both runners failed to place in the mile event
which was run over a water-soaked track in the pouring rain. The Connec-
ticut squad finished third in the six-team meet with 41 points.
Bulkeley trackmen lost by graduation were: Captain George Terry, Carl-
ton Small, Bill Barrett, Sholom Shafner, Bud O'Connor, Jack O'Connor, and
John Kelley and Nick Korean were named Co-Captains for the 1949 sea-

The 1948 cross-country team was one of the finest in Bulkeley's history,
even though two of its crack runners were unable to compete due to ineli-
gibility. Coach Mal Greenaway built the formidable outfit around his long
distance ace, John Kelley.
The team's potentiality was first witnessed by a rousing 20-35 victory
over the New Britain State Teachers' College in an informal meet. John
Kelley led the pack as he covered the 3.1 mile distance in 16:21 finishing a
minute and twenty seconds ahead of his teammate, David Terry.
In the initial meet of the season, Bulkeley defeated Hartford High, 1947
State Champions, by the overwhelming margin of 19-36. Kelley was again
first across the finish line as he ran the 2.5 mile distance in 13:24.
In their next meet the Bengals suffered their second defeat in three years
of dual competition as they were decisively downed by a well-balanced Nor-
wich combine. Although Kelley clipped 25.8 seconds off of the Academy
course record in leading the pack to the tape, he was followed by five suc-
cessive Wildcat harriers, thus giving Norwich the victory.
Out of the Bulkeley representatives sent to the State Meet at Wesleyan
University, only reliable John Kelley succeeded in placing. He took first in
the run as he negotiated the 2.7 mile course in 13:50:1. Kelley's triumph
marked the third successive year that a Bulkeley harrier has won the State
Two Bulkeley runners, John Kelley and Bob Stanners, were selected as
members of the Connecticut cross-country team in the New England Meet.
However, due to a poorly conducted race and slippery footing, Bulkeley's
speedster, John Kelley, was content to place third in a large field of accom-
The 1948 lettermen were: Co-Captains John Kelley and Robert Stanners,
Stanley Evanski, Nicholas Korean, LeRoy Nash, William Wheeler, and

The 1948 Freshman Basketball team left nothing to be desired as it came through a
thirteen game schedule undefeated to rank with the Freshman team of '43 as two of the
finest in Bulkeley's history.
We opened our season in December by bowling over Fitch, 45-25.
After the Christmas holidays we went to Stonington and were victorious 56-31.
Windham then came to New London and for three quarters kept pace with us. However,
the game ended with Bulkeley holding an eight point margin, 32-24.
The first of the Chapman Tech games Was played at Ocean Beach. Tech found Blair,
Lindquist and Morgan too much for them, as Bulkeley won, 51-30.
The Mystic Oral School was then taken by a 43-22 score.
Next we journeyed to Norwich where we downed the Wildcats by a 33-27 score. This was
as near as any team came to matching us.
Windham at Willimantic posed no problem as they fell, 42-24.
The Norwich quintet then ventured to New London and were defeated, 39-27.
At the Y.M.C.A. our third string played most of the game as We again beat Mystic Oral,
In the Freshman Tournament at Norwich we came from behind to defeat Stonington,
65-40, but Stonington at Bulkeley was tough until little Herbie Levine blew the lid off with
ten points in a minute and half enabling us to Win 47-33.
The second Chapman Tech game at the beach was more difficult but we were victorious
Returning to Norwich for our final tournament game against Chapman Tech we found
ourselves nine points down in the second quarter. It was a perfect spot for an upset but We
rallied to gain a 42-31 triumph, thus capturing the tournament championship.
Mr. Joseph Silva, team coach, found the spirit and cooperation of this squad remarkable.
If one player was 05 his game, three others were ready to replace him.
At the close of the season Eugene King was elected Captain.
Sparked by the all-round play of Captain Jim Hansen, Senior Room 16 took the intra
mural basketball championship of the school for the second successive year. Thev had little
competition as all opposition fell with surprising ease. In their final game Room i6 defeated
Room 24, the winner of the Freshman-Sophomore division, and thus copped the title.
The 1948 Freshman baseball season was run on an informal basis. The squad was com-
posed of Freshman members of the varsity team. Under the leadership of Captain Dick
Lindquist, the Yearlings had a successful season, Winning four, losing one, and tying one.

In the fall of 1948 Mr. Howard T.
5 Pierce, band director, found it nec-
essary to replace some of the most
outstanding musicians in Bulke-
ley's history. Together with the
few Seniors in the band, the young-
er, inexperienced players were
molded into a fine organization.
Several of the boys played in the
All-Connecticut Band in its annual
concert at Bushnell Memorial in
Hartford. A similar group repre-
sented Bulkeley in the All-New
England Band which convened at
Wellesley, Massachusetts. The entire group journeyed to Old Orchard
Beach, Maine, to participate in the very colorful New England Audition
Mr. Howard T. Pierce
When not traveling the band provided music for school assemblies, foot-
ball games, and civic parades.
Through the hard work of all its members the '48-'49 Bulkeley Band,
twenty-first in the history of the school, capably assumed its salient role in
THE BULKELEY SERENADERS
The 1949 Bulkeley Serenaders, ably led by Bob Schultz, performed splen-
didly for the annual Minstrel Show and as usual participated in the Senior
Assembly. The loss of several veterans through graduation did not hamper
the unusually fine work of this group, which has assumed a very popular
role in the music department's activities.
THE BULKELEY GLEE CLUB
The school schedule this year has made it impossible for Bulkeley to have
a Glee Club composed of members representing the entire student body.
Nevertheless, a fine group has been formed from boys of the two lower
This year the Glee Club provided the choral background for the annual
Minstrel Show. Also, a selected group, in conjunction with the W.M.I.
Choir, offered a fine rendition of carols at our Christmas program.
Bulkeley was Well represented by members of the Glee Club in the All-
Connecticut Chorus. Several members of the group also sang in the All-
New England Chorus.

The legislative and executive power of the Bulkeley student body is
vested in the Student Council. Students elected to the Council as home room
representatives serve the school in many ways. This year's group has,
among other things, conducted the school elections, supervised the monitor
system, rewritten the Student Government Constitution, and discussed
thoroughly the subject of a student blanket tax. The Council also renders
valuable assistance to the community by aiding in worthwhile drives and
The body is headed by Richard Calkins, President, Austin Joyce, Vice-
President, Larry Shay, Secretary, and Robert Toohey, Treasurer. By
sharing in the Council's activities the entire group has gained valuable
experience in organizing and successfully completing a variety of projects.
NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
The Leonard H. Bulkeley chapter of the National Honor Society is con-
sidered to be the most exclusive organization within the school. Installed
at Bulkeley in 1945, it has now become a highly respected group.
In order to be eligible for membership, a student must maintain an aver-
age of eighty-five per cent in all subjects through his first three years at
Bulkeley. In addition, the student must be active in a major extra-curricular
activity and must exemplify leadership therein. Out of a list of those boys
who have maintained eligibility standards, the faculty elects a limited
number into membership.
The main objectives of the society are to further interest underclassmen
in developing the necessary qualities of Leadership, Character, and Service
as well as maintaining a high scholastic standing. After membership has
been gained, students are accorded special privileges which afford them
freedom of the buildings and campus.
The chapter has as its oflicers Richard Lena, President, and Herman
Goldstein, Secretary-Treasurer, and has as its advisor, Mr. John T. Troland.
Other members are Seymour Hendel, Van Keuren Jones, Robert McPhail,
and Bernard Rothenberg.
The Leaders' Club has for its membership the president or captain of
every extra-curricular activity in Bulkeley. The main purpose in bringing
together the leaders of the various organizations is to foster a spirit of co-
operation among the several activities, leading to the general betterment of
Because of the responsibilities the members have to their own groups,
the Leaders' Club does not attempt to sponsor any' formal activities. How-
ever, the club does act as host to the inter-school forum held annually at
Bulkeley. Headmaster Arthur L. Hjortland sponsors the group.

THE POLITICAL SCIENCE CLUB
The Political Science Club was founded in 1947 as a discussion group whose
primary purpose was to prepare speakers for participation in the Eastern
Connecticut inter-school forums.
This year the club has broadened its program to include weekly discussions
on important controversial issues. After a topic has been selected by the
group, certain members are appointed to do extensive research into the pro
and con of the matter. The material gathered serves as a basis for a simu-
lated forum which is conducted at the next meeting.
Through the program of weekly forums the members of the club have
become more keenly aware and interested in the affairs of national, state,
and local governments and have also gained valuable practice in the art of

JUNIOR WHALER ASSISTANTS
The Junior Whaler Assistants are a group of enterprising and energetic
members of the Junior Class who have given freely of their time to help
insure the success of The 1949 Whaler.
These boys, who are under the direction of the business staff, have shoul-
dered the task of soliciting advertisements from the merchants of the city.
Some of their number have relinquished study halls so that they might be
able to aid members of the senior staff in their work. Their efforts will be
rewarded by appointment to the staff of next year's Whaler.
The Commercial Club was organized last year to provide a source of
interesting and instructive matter to all students whose course includes
commercial subjects. Many topics in this broad field have been discussed
by well-informed guest speakers at the group's weekly meetings.
A few of the subjects which have been presented are: the framework of
the employment bureau, economic problems in post-war Germany, and
opportunities for further study at the conclusion of the high school course.
The club is under the leadership of Nelson Derry, President, Remington
Lewis, Vice-President, and Richard Filippetti, Secretary.
WHALER ROOM CAPTAINS
The Whaler Room Captains were selected early in the school year by the
Circulation Managers and home room teachers to facilitate the distribution
of The Whaler in the three lower classes. These boys receive subscriptions
and payments from the members of their home rooms. The use of a colored
bar graph in the subscription drive this year spurred keen competition among
Much of the credit for the financial success of The 1949 Whaler is due to
the resoluteness and initiative which these boys displayed during the drive.

CIRCULATION : CLOTTED
SENTENCE OF CULPRIT ENDS CASE
' OF THE BOGUS ERRAND CARDS
Main Office CKPJ. In a communique
issued today it was announced that the
military tribunal trying Henry Linz for
violation of school ordinances had return-
ed a verdict of guilty. Linz was given a
dishonorable discharge and was sentenced
to ten years at hard labor in Freshman
Dungeon. The communique contained the
details of the swift manner in which the
faculty coped with the crisis on last Fri-
day, now called "Black Friday."
Mr. Falconer reported to Mr. Small that
there had appeared in the corridors a
flood of errand cards, all signed by Mr.
Carey. Mr. Peck, a defective detective,
found that Mr. Carey had not given out
his card and foul play was almost imme-
diately suspected. When Mr. Silva broke
the news to the Faculty Room, it was
greeted at first by a shocked silence. As
soon as he recovered, Mr. Greenaway
dashed off for his flashgun and camera.
Mr. Pasquale is quoted as having said,
"Yes, the trend is evident, is that not so?
Absolutely!" Mr. Shay mumbled, "Some
of these birds must be desperate." Mr.
Ray Reed generously offered the use of
his bullwhip, should the culprit be appre-
hended. However, Mr. Flood Reed voiced
the opinion of all when he said, "Mebbe
some of them are counterfeit !" Mr. Clark
suggested a chemical analysis be applied.
Agreeing that the "sage of the drawing
board" had hit upon a good idea, Mr. Bal-
entine procured from Mr. Pierce a kettle
drum to use as a vat into which Mr. Tro-
land poured a mysterious liquid. After
many incantations such as "Double,
double, toil and trouble" and "When the
hurly-bur1y's donen, Mr. Lawrence dip--
ped the cards into the solution which was
intended to bring forth its maker's finger-
Page one hundred sixty-two
prints. It did! However, in the process
the card was dissolved so that nothing but
fingerprints remained. Mr. Harris took
notes of the entire proceedings for the
The first lead came when lVIr. O'Brien
said that he had heard a strange rumb-
ling and clanking that seemed to emit
from Room 15. When Mr. Cole, who occu-
pies a neighboring room, was asked to
verify this statement he said "I couldn't
hear anything because I was practicing
the 'Twelfth Street Rag' for the next
At that moment Mr. Attwill confessed.
He explained that he had been led astray
by the incorrigible Henry Linz. Henry,
a master mechanic, had manipulated the
mimeograph machine so that it would
print errand cards. These were then sold
to the underclassmen.
When the main office was notified of
Mr. Attwill's statement, two strong-arm
monitors were dispatched to Room 16,
where they seized Linz and took him be-
fore Mr. Small. Linz was kept in solitary
confinement in the little room at the
southwestern end of the chemistry labor-
atory until today's trial.

DESPERATION . .

Faculty Room CL.S.!M.F.T.J. Because
of the low financial condition of all the
members of the Bulkeley faculty, it was
announced today in this smoke-filled room
that the teachers had decided to incorpor-
ate. Under the new set-up, the faculty
members would pool their talents and, as a
group, offer their services for hire. Among
other things, the long list of services con-
tains florists, operetta singers, or just
plain salesmen. When called upon for a
job, one faculty member, a specialist in the
field, will supervise two foremen and one
laborer on whatever project desired.
The action came as a shock to report-
ers since it was only three years ago that
the pay of Bulkeley teachers was raised
from 320 to 324.50 per Week. However,
Bulkeley students have noticed that be-
sides wearing the same suit everyday, a
particular faculty member has stuck with
one tie for the past two months. Also,
Mr. Balentine, who is usually well-dressed,
is wearing only four suits per week in-
stead of five.
After the plan was announced, each
faculty member listed the professions,
occupations, and labors in which he is
presently involved so that an official list
of services to be offered could be com-
As always, our reporters, first on the
scene, plowed their way through the smoke
to the northeastern corner of the room
where these lists were posted. They
found that the individual records sub-
mitted by Messrs. Greenaway and Balen-
tine were unique. '
On Mr. Greenaway's report we found
the following occupations: professional
magician, camp director, mountain-climb-
ing guide, life guard, youth hostel expert,
photographer, pen manufacturer, Christ-
mas tree grower, king of some little-known
island, trolley motorman, museum presi-
NEW ELEMENT DISCOVERED
Chemistry Laboratory CTNTJ. Culmi-
nating many weeks of exhausive research,
Bernard Rothenberg, eminent chemist,
made public today his report on the new
element which he discovered while work-
ing in the chemistry laboratory. His re-
port is as follows:
Accepted Atomic Weight: 120
Physical Properties: Boils at nothing and
freezes at any minute: melts when pro-
perly treated: very bitter if not used
Occurrence: Found wherever man exists.
Chemical Properties: Possesses great
affinity for gold, silver, platinum and
precious stones: violent reaction if left
alone, able to absorb a great amount of
food matter: turns red when placed be-
side a better looking specimen.
Uses: Highly ornamental: useful as a
tonic in acceleration of low spirits and
wealth: is probably the most effective
income-reducing agent known.
Caution: Highly explosive in inexperienc-
dent, group travel expert, and coach of the
field sports. At the conclusion of his re-
port Mr. Greenaway stated that, in addi-
tion to raising rabbits as a hobby, he teach-
es Latin, Spanish, French, English, math-
ematics, civics, and geography.
Taking second place in the list of occu-
pations, Mr. Balentine enumerated the fol-
lowing: jewelry salesman, director of ac-
tivities, newspaper journalist, food clerk,
master of ceremonies, publicity man, bas-
ketball referee, public address announcer,
advertising agent, statistician, and direc-
tor of athletics.
