In early life man lives in the future, in later years he recalls past experiences, and in old age he lives almost wholly in the past. Thus, in this publication, the 1953 Clipper, we attempt to capture the historical drama which unfolds itself in the form of the newly completed addition. This edifice will un- questionably provide greater opportunities to the students of New London and vicinity. The forging of this strong link in the ever-expanding chain of our city's educational system was not accomplished overnight. For most of us, it is hard to visualize the amount of planning and construction which a project such as this entails. A pictorial review of the work already finished is the means by which we on the staff hope to capture the significance of this important annex to our young high school. Here, also in the 1953 edition, the editors of the Clipper have recorded the highlights, traditions, and spirit of New London High in an endeavor to reproduce the memories which we shall all hold so dear. If this multi-purpose is achieved, then we on the staff will feel that our efforts have been amply rewarded. ,ml X5 Z' .L " 9 . Nw' gi'W-fgi . i .

Yearbook photography was his life's work. He was responsible for building up Loring's yearbook section, a special unit whose duty it is to help yearbook staffs and to keep them happy. As a photographer he gave unsparingly of his energy to the betterment of our yearbook, for though he was active in many schools, New London High was his great love.

By October, 1950, all financial and legal transactions had been completed to the extent that the city government could go ahead with the purchase of the Chapman Technical High School, now recognized as New London High School. Thus, for the first time since 1873, through the efforts of the Board of Education, the citizens of New London became responsible for public education on a grade one through twelve basis. Progressive strides were then taken towards a modern addition. Facilities. at the time of the hrst investigations of the school problem, provided for the accommodation of only 950 students. The decision resulting from this disclosure was that the city would have to meet the responsibilities of expanding and improving the hxtures already at the high school, since an additional 900 entering students were ngured on within the following three years. Conse- quently, the existing Bartlett and Nathan Hale city-owned elementary schools were made an integral part of New London High. The total additional rooms made available by these steps were twenty-seven. To complete the trans- formation, the pupils enrolled at Robert Bartlett and Nathan Ilale Schools were transferred to the Charles B. Jennings Schoolls ln turn, the seventh and eighth grade pupils of the latter ihstittition were shifted to Bulkeley School, which then' became the city's only junior high school. There was also the question of Williams Memorial Institute, the school ,for girls.

In the period of time that we have passed at New London High School, most of us have estab- lished the foundations of our future intentions and desires. The primary school attitude has undergone a distinctive change in which our views, concepts, and attitudes have been broadened and matured. No longer do we possess our initial approach toward everyday problems but rather a more serious outlook toward situations that often confront us. Also, as our second year of high school comes to its end, the focal point is concentrated on the coming two years, the years that will complete the foremen- tioned transition. Our junior and Senior years offer us the complement of these past years in which we have partially developed new means to approach our undertakings. The Class of 1955 will utilize in its best possible manner the facilities which have been long in the construction phase to express its gratitude to the taxpayers and all those who have made them possible L , , 4 Y 1 1 , 1, z f , i My Q '21, NT H yla va ."t., ' is ,- if . l , ' ', r. . , . . . . r X THE FRESHWIAN LLASS The ettes of 1 new field of edueltlon were opened to us when we entered the hills of New london Hugh Qehool Students representrng, sexerxl of the em s ertmmrr sehools were gfrthered together on a du of therr own to get the i,ener1l liyout of the hrbh school eourses 1nd how the rnstrtutron wis operated Then we w ere rntermrngpled wrth the other three elrsses rs the schedule got undetwfty The Hrst few weeks were the testrng beds durrng whreh we bee mme reeustomed to the new type of homework eurrreulum Newer 1nd hrotder tetrxrtres were offered to the errnd of the rerdemxe portron of hrgh school lxfe Agun the freshmen were well represented rn the sehool s sports progmm 1nd outslde aetrvrtres Sxnee we made our bmxe entrance the freshmqn elrss has ttleen great strrdes rn the drrectron of be comrng 1 put of the New London Hrgh Famrly XY'e hue eompleted now our mftyor adjustment wrth Hytng colors - FACLITY ADVISORS to the Freshmnrn Chss 'ere Mr Slerlgm Mrs Cftnfleld Mr Atwrll and Mrs Ixekson FRESHMAN CLASS OFFIQERS tre left to rrght treftsurer I Brown vrce presrdent T Ctldrello seerettry N Corleey 1nd presrdenr G Woodworth 15 1 'Sf Y l yr .- V A -1 4 rs . . .

H N.- , STUDENT COUNCIL Under the guidance of Mr Richard Snape and consonant with the desire of Mr Holland to realize an efficient student govern ment the student body and faculty have established a representative council from among those students most capable of assuming lead etship in the solution of school problems This council consists of the Senior Class and junior Class officers along with the other class officials underclass elected representatives and specially selected upper classmen with a member representing the Senior Council. At the beginning of the school year the Council convened every week in the discussion of any problems which had confronted members of New London High School but at the completion of the first semester meetings were rescheduled to include every other week. Many students have brought their suggestions to the doorstep of the Council for improvements of school facilities and the legislative body has gladly com- plied. Serious situations have been introduced which involve money matters, one especially notable was that of the soda machines whose proceeds reimburse the Student Activity Fund. Too many bottles were being misplaced at the cost of the school. After pleadings by the faculty for their return, the same crisis prevailed. At this point the Student Council was asked to investigate the mat- ter. The problem was incorporated into the Council's agenda and was duly acted upon. Warnings were issued by the senior members and the loss declined consider- ably. As a result of New London High's founding only two years ago the Class of 1952, its first graduating body, left with- out establishing an alma mater, due to their being pressed for time. Therefore, numerous requests have been presented to the Coun- cil for a method in choosing a permanent alma mater. A special branch committee has been formed to record songs which are to be played at the student government meetings. Of the several presented, only three are to be selected, which, in turn, will be played to the entire student body via the public address system. After repeated presentations ballots will be distributed and elections will follow. In this manner the melody will be chosen. Immediately fol- lowing this balloting will be a lyric "con- test" to see who can submit words best suited to the melody. The results will be placed in the hands of the Student Council members, and in this fashion an alma mater will be born. Faculty advisers to the Student Council are: Mr, Snape, Mrs. Canfield, Mr. Small, Mrs. Vargas, and Mr. Wusterbarth. THE COMPASS A marked change in appearance and a strong influence in formulating student opinion have characterized the work f The Compass in its second year of publication Added cxpericnce gained by key members of the editorial staff has brought about bctter coordination of the photorzraphy and nevss dcpartments variations of format and improvement in lournalistic style and writing All work on thc papcr with the exception of actual print ing and cngrawrng is handled by members of the staff Each editor has his or hcr own department and all work is planned carefully to achicve satisfactory results A typical issue is startcd in this manner First assignments are given to reporters Constant revision as to lenrzth and style is made by the editorial staff Regular features are styled by the editors Pictures and cartoons are prepared When all necessary material has been organized it is sent to the printer for preliminary proofs These are read and cor rected with great care The corrected galley proofs are then returned to the printer who makes all necessary changes rn the type and a new corrected set of page proofs is received Further proof reading is necessary to catch more minute errors Then the matters of page layout headline and other technical aspects enter the picture Finally the entire paper is studied for any uncorrected errors before the printer takes over After hours of sorting and counting by the circulation department the paper is distributed to the student body All this could not take place however vuthout the skillful guidance of the faculty advisor john K Balentme who has had years of yournalnstrc experience As head man when any problem arises his suggestions and recommendations o all phases within the yournalrstic field enable the staff to look with pride upon the accomplishments of the past year B aa 65x14 COMPASS ADVERTISING STAFF First row left to right K Cuddy V Krupovage L Gae tano T Doucette A Cooper P Martin V Barca Second row D Beckwith H Southard Mr Balentme E Silvestri I VanLoan J lmpellitteri r' T'-VX wav Y 'X Compass-chief L.

The band entertains at half time during the Hartford Bulke- BAND The school band is an active organization provid- ing many varieties of entertainment. Under the capable directorship of Mr. Benvenuti the band makes many public appearances, The students of New London High always anticipate seeing this group go through its many formations at half-time during the football season. As winter puts in its appearance, the student body anxiously awaits the annual con- cert, during which the band shows off its talents with many different musical selections ranging from "bop" to "long-hair". Besides being seen at the football games and at its concerts, the band is a highlight at the local parades - bright in the colors of green and gold. These public appearances mean long hours of prac- tice. The members of the band under Mr. Benven- uti's watchful eye, may be found each band period i ley game, diligently practicing for one form of appearance or another. F 'K Although the New London High Band, now a fr L composite of Bulkeley and Chapman Tech, is only 'fri in its second year, it may be considered one of the 2 f foremost groups of the kind in this area. Proof of , its recognizability was a request made early in the S first term for New London to appear, with other Q schools from all over Connecticut, at the annual 3 Harvest Festival in New Haven. This group does not perform for any laurels or honors, but merely A. De La Cruz plays solo at the band concert. N. Fargo, Drum Majorette. First row, left to right: A. Morgan, R. Sabia, J.

A high creative point this year has been the bands experiments with a new type of march, "The Saints". Making its debut at the Harvest Festival in New Haven, and played at half-time during the last few football games, this lively march literally introduced a new style, characterized most noticeably by a jazz idiom and an exacting demand upon the musicians for technical versatility. Although the band is very active as an organiza- tion, providing much entertainment for the public, it still manages to find time to entertain itself. During spring vacation, for example, band members go to New York where they visit many places of musical interest. In addition to making this annual trek, the band plans at least one all-day picnic. One must not overlook, finally, the absolutely es- sential work of Mr. Benvenuti's two able assistants, Ruth Meadnis and Betty Phillips, who, acting as band secretaries, file and distribute materials during each band session to the members of the band, and the work of Nancy Fargo, drum-majorette, who takes over the marching leadership of the band during parades and at football games. In any case, whether it be at a football game, a parade or a concert, the band will always remain New London High's "pride and joy". "l R. Perry, R. Sabia, A. Morgan and V.

CHORAL When a student passes the music room during almost any period of the day, the voices of boys and girls practicing for one of their many appear- ances greet his ears. The Glee Club practices many long hours to maintain its noteworthy reputation. The Glee Club is a very familiar sight at the concerts and related school productions. For example, the concert this year gave these groups the oppor- tunity to give the public an idea of their vocal ability. Each group had its own particular songs, but in several selections combined their vocal tal- ents. For each performance several students are singled out to perform solo parts, showing in that way their own particular accomplishments. This year Ralph Clarkin, a member of the grad- uating class, sang the solo part with the Girls' Glee Club marking a striking contrast with the girls' voices with his deep bass voice. This showed to the audience Mr. McCarthy's different forms of musical presentation. Another soloist in the winter concert was Carmella Spadaro, a junior. SENIOR CHOIR First row, left to right: B.

The Glee Club has been subdivided into three choral groups, all under the direction of Mr. John McCarthy, The largest group is the Choir, which is made up of selected boys and girls usually from the upper classes. Among its numerous scheduled presentations, this choir is to sing at the graduation this year. The two smaller groups are the Girls' Glee Club, consisting of girls other than freshmen, and the Freshman Choir, open to freshmen on a selective basis. Their public appearances include the concert and the State Festival. The Glee Club's repertoire of songs ranges from popular to classical: the group is versatile as well as competent. If you have a reasonably good singing voice, your chances of being selected to the choral group are promising: but, on the other hand, if your voice resembles a rusty hinge, some good advice would be to follow other courses. The Glee Club is a very active organization, the students are proud of it and await its performances with high anticipation and appreciation. CHOIR First tow, left to right: T. Rebolledo, A.

However, the group's untiring efforts have produced outstanding re- sults. A problem facing the Advertising Staff similar to that of the editors' is the question of layout, position- ing, and design. Painstaking care has been taken to comply with the clients' demands as to the context of the advertisements.

The lights are dimmed and then the strains of the theme song float across the room. This is the familiar setting for every school dance. The Swing Band is composed of a selective group from the large band and consists of nineteen mem- bers, fourteen of whom play at one time during the dance with the other five alternating. In previous years all the music played by this group was ar- ranged by its director, Mr. Benvenuti, who has now stepped off to the sidelines, letting the members take over the majority of the musical arranging for them- selves. These arrangements are not all from the recent products of the musical world, but also include the ever popular ballads. Our Swing Band has become a "must" at all of the school functions. It plays for the students' danc- ing pleasure at all the dances and for their listening pleasure on special occasions such as the Variety Show. This band has acquired quite a name for itself, for which it can justly take a bow. As all school functions must have a business man- ager so must this too have one. The business manager of the Swing Band is Mr. E. T. McLoughlin and acting as a student manager is joseph Ruggeri, a member of the marching band. New London High is extremely fortunate in having a dance band to whose lilting strains the student body can drift for an evening of pleasant dancing, be it a waltz, fox trot, or a jitterbug. There is no doubt that all the students think that this group can measure up to any dance band in this area. L. DeAngelis and his magic accordion entertain during intermission. Swingsters, W. Byars, J. lmpellitteri, and P. Vine are counseled by maestro Benvenuti. ' +995 YW ploy DRAMA c, 1 W. Senkow persuades P, Hewitt not to call the police in a scene from "Ram- shackle Inn." is E.

The play,s a thing wherein all hands combine The New London High School Dramatic Club, under the capable direction of Mr. Frank D. Robins, has proved itself one of the most productive organizations in the school. Working closely with an allied activity, Troupe ll69 of the National Thespian Society, the group annually pro- duces six plays. These range from one-act productions for drama festival contests to the conventional three-act presenta- tion. Although the public sees only the finished product, there are many branches which are as vital to a play, such as: the actors themselves, the make-up crew, under the guidance of Mr. Albin K. Kayrukstis, which actually creates the phys- ical character of the actor, the stage crew and the electrical specialists who provide the background and setting for all presentations, program and publicity experts whose efforts aid in making each and every play a success, and lastly, but most important of all, the director's long and varied exper- ience which provides the actors and actresses with excellent means to gain full knowledge of stage convention. Mr. Robins, a member of the New England Theater Con- ference, has been directing at New London for approximately four years. Among his presentations are, "My Sister Eileen," a comedy-farce, "A Bell for Adanof' a Broadway show adapted for the New London High Dramatic Club by Mr. Robins, A bewildered look appears on R Buells face as he .I- is confronted by L Siff and C Harwood Y' -:ws f '., ff' DRAMA CLUB First row, left to right: A.

Segal portrayed the main roles, The parts were not particularly easy ones for high school dramatists. Characterization was quite difficult, since the setting requires speech in broken English. The theme of the play deals with the reorganization of Adano, a small Sicilian town recently liberated by the United States Army. A competent major, portrayed by S. Simon, works conscien- tiously to clean up the city by democratic methods. He ac- complishes his goal, but, in the process he unfortunately loses his position. The second production, "Ramshackle Inn," stars C. Har- wood, R. Koley, B. Marsie, I., Siff, G. Hilton, and M. O'Kane. This play has no real theme, but, is rather a mixture of murder, mystery and comedy. The purpose of this per- formance is to delight the audience rather than present a theme of a more serious vein. In connection with the National Thespian Society, the outstanding actors and actresses receive points on the basis of time spent, effort, and result. Though few dramatists re- ceive enough credit to become honor Thespians, B. Marsie, A. Archibald, S, Jennings, N. Fedus, and R. Waring have achieved this goal. The stage is not the only medium of entertainment available to this industrious group. Special holiday programs have been presented to the entire student body over the public address system. Mr, Robins, in conjunction with Mr. Richard Benvenuti, musical director, are preparing a radio adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe's short story, "Masque of the Red Death." The activity schedule for the club included a trip to New York, picnics, and attendance at dramatic productions throughout the state, Although the Dramatic Club may not be one of the largest money makers. it provides pleasant relief for its stu- dent participants from the habitual Schoolday routine.

FRENCH CLUB One of the most progressive organizations at NLHS is the French Club, under the direction of Mr. Greenaway. The year's schedule includes dances, social gatherings, and lectures by guest speakers, many of whom have either lived in France or have traveled extensively through the country. The speakers give the club members accu- rate accounts of the French language, its people, and its culture as a supplement to their class work. Probably one of the most anticipated events in the entire school is the annual sojourn to Montreal, Canada, which is spon- sored by the French Club. This year the club decided ro invite those students who are not members of the organization and who expressed a desire to make the journey. A fee of slightly over sixty dollars per person is indeed well spent, when one con- siders what you get for your money now- adays. The scenic trip to Montreal, tours to points of interest, such as museums, art galleries, historic battlefields, and churches are included. On the lighter side are hockey games, visits to ski slopes, toboggan rides, mountain climbing, and last but not least, good French food prepared by famous French chefs. All in all, this annual trip to a French country makes the French Club one of the most popular and active clubs in our school. A. Chapman, J. Kenyon, J. Davison, E. Boska, R. Hawkes and J.

Led by a host of returning veterans the team combined good hit- ting and a tight defense which bolstered an average pitching staff. The Whalers' only two reversals were administered by a strong Norwich Free Academy nine. In both contests the Whalers took early leads but faulty pitching in crucial moments proved costly for the Green and Gold. Ably coached by jack Conway, the Whalers featured a formidable defense which "pulled out" of many tight spots. Eddie Glynn, Phil Lentine, and Jack Malone sparked the inner defense while "ball-hawk" Connie Devlin and diminutive joey Romano patrolled the outfield in strong fashion. New London High scored an easy 13-5 win over Norwich Tech in the '52 opener behind the hitting of Connie Devlin and Harry Traystman. "Dev" connected - for two circuit clouts driving in 5 runs while Traystman had a perfect day at the plate with 4 for 4. Taking advan- tage of the wildness of Woodrow Wilson's hurler, joe 106 Jay, in the early innings, the Whalers downed the Middle- JACK CONWAY town nine 8-7.

The Whalers swept the series with Norwich Tech in a 17-1 decision behind the two-hit pitching of three Whaler moundsmen, Terry Bren- nan, Jim O'Connor, and john Muschinsky. Whaler bats- men connected for 16 hits including a home run by Connie Devlin. The Whalers extended their win streak by once again outpoinring Billard Academy 5-3, behind the three-hit hurling of Bob Sinagra. A five run eighth inning high- lighted by Eddie Glynn's triple overcame a two run deficit and extended the Whaler win streak to five. Bob Sinagra spun a no-hitter as New London High defeated Stonington 10-3 in a duel called at the end of Eve innings because of rain.

The Whalers hit paydirt twice in the first quarter with Manwaring and Joe Giordano doing the scoring. With Ronnie D'Amico, Sam Savona and Billy O'Donnell, the defensive standouts, the Golden Hur- ricane was held to one touchdown scored late in the final period on a pass play which covered 60 yards. The Whalers continued along the unbeaten path with a convincing 26-12 decision over Notre Dame of West Haven. Held to a 6-6 halftime deadlock, the Green and Gold gridders broke the game wide open with two third period scores which were sparked by the running of Ray Burke and Ernie Brown. Defensively Phil Lentine, jimmy Epps and Joe Giordano goes over for the first score against New Britain. Football Coach Tom Flanagan with assistant coaches Harlan Sturgis and "Dates" Mugavero.

Breaking up a scoreless duel with a pair of touch- downs in the final quarter, the Whalers defeated Hartford Bulkeley 13-0. Ernie Brown, double duty performer, starred for NLHS as he set up both touch- downs with his brilliant running and his interception of a Bulkeley pass. New London's defensive line led by Phil Lentine, Sam Savona, and jimmy Sullivan, left little to be desired. Our rivals from across the river, Fitch, invaded Morgan Park conhdent of victory, but went home on the short end of a 39-20 score. New London High's attack was in high gear as Arnie Manwaring, Ray Burke, and Ernie Brown gained yardage almost at will, and Bobby Murphy's passes consistently hit Bruce Beran forces Dubois to sideline in Windham game. D'Amico exerts the extra effort to make a tackle vs. Weaver their targets, Bob Blodgett and Bob Tuneski. Al- though the Whaler attack was devastating, joe Dal- laire, Fitch halfback, was the star player on the field as he scored all three Tanager touchdowns and was a workhorse throughout the afternoon. NLHS dropped its season finale to an older, more experienced Billard eleven, 14-7. The Whalers scored first on a 50-yard pass play from Murphy to Tuneski. However, the heavier Admirals pushed across touch- downs in the third and fourth quarters, which proved decisive. The Whalers were unable to penetrate through Billard's forward wall so Bobby Murphy's accurate pitching stood out offensively, while Phil Lentine, Ronnie D'Amico, Sam Savona and John Stadnick, playing their last grid game for the "Green and Gold" were the defensive stars.

The NLHS forward was assigned the task of cover- ing Wilby's All-State center, Dick Clary. Indeed, lanky Ken performed his duty to the Not only was Clary limited to 11 points, after netting 29 in the quarter-finals, but Willoughby came up with 18 and did an excellent job of rebounding. In the title classic the Green and Gold displayed tremendous potential and teamwork which had carried them to Boston. In the worst defeat suffered by any finalist in New England play, the Whalers smothered De La Salle of Newport, R. I., 71-42. Immediately after hopping off to a 16-6 lead, the New London five appeared champion- ship bound. The game Rhode Islanders closed the gap to 16-12 before Coach O'Brien regrouped his forces as the first quarter ended. After that, the Whaler zone defense and speedy offense snowed under the opposition. Donnie Burns, with 19 points, turned in one of the greatest games of his career as he stole the ball, dribbled through the befuddled De La Salle combine time and time again, and generally awed the crowd with his outstanding play. Although Burns, Ken XX'illoughby, and jim O'Connor were named to the all-tournament team, the Whaler drive towards the New England crown was characterized by great team play.
