A A native of Norwich, Mr. Casey was born on March 19, 1924, the son of Charles and Delia fCarrollJ 'Casey. He was graduated from the Norwich Free Academy, Morse Business College of Hartford and received his degree from the New Britain State Teachers' College. A veteran of World War II, Mr. Casey began his teaching career at the Hartford Institute of Accounting. In 1951 he came to New London High School as a member of thejBusiness Department. He soon was appointed to the post of business advisor to The Clipper. In his three years at NLI-IS, he became known for his congenial nature, keen mind and outstanding character. He presented the epitome of good citizenship to all those who dealt with him. No problem was too insignificant for Mr. Casey, he gave his helpful attention and untiring efforts to all those who were troubled. We, who had come to know him, were shocked and stunned to receive the news of his accidental death on September 17, 1954. A' A final tribute to Mr. john J. Casey by our Principal Bertram H. Holland sums up the way in which we regarded him: "He war a friend to everyone and everyonek friend." . 5, 'ff-1 , iQ 3 , . . ! s 'z , A 5' Q Q If 15 L M5 -S . 3 Na' .

Though time may yellow the pages of this book, it can never age the vivid memories of our youth. There comes a time when every man pauses to relive, in thought, the years spent in preparation for what he has become. His school days are most prominent, for his life is a re- flection of his learning in those years. As the present scene fades from his eyes, the lost days of carefree youth come into focus. The season is fall: registration again, orientation for newcomers, a time for football, school spirit, color, cross country awards, band on parade and cheering. All these events pass in rapid succession before him. Again a haze comes over his eyes and his mind dwells on an- other season: winter, bringing with it a wonderland atmosphere and a soft white calm. His days passg school work progresses, basketball begins and the school team fights for the championship, clubs are or- ganized, and the student council starts its program- ming. And then, Christmas, the holiday season, teach- ing people the spirit of "peace on earth, good will toward men." Winter passes and spring takes its place. Spring brings to mind the senior prom, com- mencement, spring also means baseball, the variety show, the spring concert, a school play and the spring formal. Thus, the seasons encompassed a life almost too full to be written and pictured within the pages of this book. But some day when he is tinted with the grey of age, the reader will open the dusty pages of his 1955 Clipper and smile at the memories of trials, toils, and friendships - and a way of life that once was gloriomly hir.

Optimistic about what is before them, students and faculty push the pleasures of the past sum- mer from their minds and wholeheartedly determine to meet the job before them. They enter the edifice in which they will spend the next ten months. A ' The 8:50 bell signals the beginning of new classes and the start of a new year busy with studies, socials, and sports. Papers, forms, records, file cards and in- formation blanks to be completed in dupli- cate await our attention. The PA system supplies us with information necessary for a smooth start.

The student body as well as the faculty are behind the squadg all do an outstanding job-whether on the gridiron or in the bleachers. After losing to several tough teams, our team wins the admiration of the whole school by defeating Norwich, our Rose City rival, in the last game of the season.

The Thespian society presents its first play of the school year, a three-act play entitled The Curiour Sewage. The PBA dances continue on Friday nights and the school takes on a hurried atmosphere as many of the students take on part-time jobs for the Christmas vacation. An assembly program features a play depicting the Christmas story. It confirms our hopes that the Christmas vacation is near at hand and that the re- maining days will pass quickly. Finally the last day of school before the vacation arrives, climaxed by the Christmas dance that eve- ning. We soon forget the problems of school and assume the light-heartedness appropriate to the holi- day season. Our vacation is reaching its climax as the days draw close to December 25. It is a Wfhite Christmas. Upon returning in January after a hectic vacation, we assume that a rest is in order. But themes are due, and books are to be reported on. C.

April-which brings us to the realization that only two more months remain to the 1955 school year. Third term report cards are issued-to the dismay of most students-and we enter the fourth quarter, head high, shoulders braced, spirits resigned to make the last try a good one. The social season is in full bloom and everyone is talking about the Spring Formal. For several weeks preceding this dance-the climax of the underclass- men's social year-the boys discuss the finances, while the girls ponder on the most tactful way to spend it. And, finally, in the classroom the students try to keep their thoughts on studies, but Mother Natures ubiquitous disease, Spring Fever, gradually affects everyone. Congrerrnzan H.

The outstanding juniors are filling the important positions on the various publications. In addition, the drum majorette and the baton leader are chosen. The last few weeks pass quickly and then the momentous day that every senior awaits finally arrives. We look in retrospect at our four years at NLHS, and then our eyes turn toward the future. We know not what lies aheadg we are reticent and apprehen- sive. But it is too lateg we have made our choice. We receive our diplomas. All ir memory. V. Elci, I. DeNoia, P. Smilgin and A.

Responsible for our advancement is a group of civic-minded citizens who give unreservedly of their time and efforts. As a result we are now enjoying such fruits of their labor as the new annex and a soundly established secondary education. Not content with past achievements, the Board of Educa- tion is constantly planning two, five, ten years ahead for better schools, new facilities, and fulfillment of the ideals of public education. Plans have already been made for a new grade school to be built near Morgan Park in the next few years, and for a club house for the high school teams. Another practice which the board soon hopes to see extended is the use of radio-telephone for direct instruction between class- room and home for shut-in students. We have seen the board consolidate several different schools and buildings into one huge, smoothly functioning and well-equipped high school with firmly established school standards and spirit. l+ Ofhcers of the Board are: Frederick W. Edgerton, secre taryg Edward P. Neilan, president. A LASTING TRIBUTE New London High School, the building, the students, will be a living and lasting tribute to the outstanding efforts of Dr. John C. Al- bohm, the Superintendent of Schools. A native of Orange, New Jersey, and the son of a clergyman, Dr. Albohm has been the motivating force behind the long, arduous struggle to modernize the educational system. His superior educational background has en- abled him to fill his difficult position, which includes the supervision of the entire public school system. Chief executive of the Board of Education, and an active civic leader, Dr. Albohm holds a keen interest in youth. Working with the Board to afford the students of greater New London with the best possible education - at the least possible expense to the taxpayer - he has come a long way in attaining his goal. The completion of the New London High School plant has given us a high school second to none in the state. With its modern facilities and flexible curricula, our school offers a well- rounded liberal education - a living tribute to an outstanding Superintendent of Schools. DR. JOHN C.

SMALL Assistant Principal GUIDANCE With the increasing enrollment, the job of student guidance has become a vital part of school administration. Here at NLHS our administration maintains various oHi- cers to aid the students. The assistant principal works closely with the prin- cipal in all administrative matters and aids students in selecting colleges and obtaining financial aid. The deans are primarily interested in helping young- sters to mature and to accept responsibility. The Guidance Department attempts to help students decide on post-high school careers. Testing and personal interviews help accomplish this aim. MARSHALL H. NYE Guidance Director WILLIAM L. FOYE Dean of Boys PHYLLIS L. CANFIELD Dean of Girls THOMAS R. FLANAGAN Head Counselor HIS LEADERSHIP IMPROVES SCHOOL Mr. Bertram H. Holland came to New London in 1952 to assume the leadership of the newly consoli- dated high schools. Since then his leadership has accomplished more to improve New London High School than any other single factor. Zeal, resourcefulness and a keen desire to help, characterizes all of his activities. An institution which numbers some 2000 students and faculty members is an extremely large group to administer well, yet our principal has done exactly that. The olifice force is another group without which our school cannot function. These tireless workers are responsible for carrying out the many clerical duties which a school of our size involves. Duplica- tions, reports, bills and transcripts are some of the many duties they perform.

Here on the third floor, are found scales, test tubes, and element charts: equipment neces- sary for a study of the natural world around us. For most of us, our introduction to science at NLHS was in the study of biology. The memory of animal life as seen under a microscope in a sample of city water still burns in our minds long after the stentors, vorticelli, and pseudopods have been forgotten. In physics and chemistry we encountered the phenomena of the universe. Specific heat, density, absolute scales, S.T.P. and V.T.P. doggedly plagued us in our studies. After these were conquered, the task was easy, only the fields of sound, light, heat, and the paradox, gravity remained to be understood. Each marking quarter in physics we proved the axiom that what goes up must come down, and in chemistry we found that smoke does get in your eyes. pk 'I' twffj 158 A fp., ,. sa!! c' N E, FIKE A, JEROME GOODWIN SOLOMON H.

United States history encompasses the history of our country from the time of discovery to the present, and includes intensive study on the Constitution. Although we become discouraged at times over the voluminous amount of material to absorb, We all realize the necessity for these courses.

HENRY SHAY Head of Foreign Language Department VENI- VIDI- VICI "Veni, Vidi, Vici." For many of us this was our introduc- tion to the realm of foreign peoples: for what better way is there to understand a civilization than through the language? Through the Omtiom of Cicero, the Adventurer par Leclurer and El Camino Real we learn to understand the cultures differ- ent from ours and thereby become more appreciative of our own. In our study we learned how to converse with jock Homme in true Parisian fashion, in Spanish to comprehend sister que Cpronounced Kayj, and to appreciate the Italian movies in the Italian classes. After a rigorous course in grammar, pronunciation, and vocabulary building, coupled with lectures by exchange stu- dents, with films, regional tests, state and national examina- tions, it was with a great relief that we bade arrividerci, au revoir, hasta la vista, or just plain Vale! to our respective classes.

Since individual expression is heavily stressed in the Art Department, all students manage to attain some measure of originality. Pupils are encouraged to further their talent and those who are sincere and gifted are given more advanced assignments. Art, however, is not confined to the studiog instruc- tors strive to help the students observe and recreate the world around them through their own talents. They point out how the ageless masterpieces of art exemplify the Latin saying, "Ars longa, vita brevis": Art is lasting, life brief. Our! if the power' Q and the glory. ENGLISH JOSEPH V.

Through the literary arts, whether the language be Greek, Latin, or our own English, we learn the prose and poetry of the past, thereby gaining a keener under- standing of the present. In our case, the English language is the basis of our culture, the doorway to knowledge and under- standing. ' With the development of newer and better methods of in- struction, the fundamentals of English are being taught to a greater number of students in a shorter period of time. We are trained to discriminate between fact and opinion, and to organize our own ideas. We practice various kinds of writing, putting special emphasis on the expository type. Group work and class discussions are as much a part of any English class as are gram- mar, spelling, and vocabulary. 34 Mr. Rohhinr giver lhe cart of 'The Cziriozir Sewage" rome helpful hinlr at a re- hearml mul remimlt them that Dmmaticr if iz pmclical application of the Englirh language.

Literature is included in our study of English. While read- ing the works of great authors, playwrites, and poets, we take time out to view literary history, following along with the writers currently being studied. For students having a special interest in American literature, a course entitled American Literature in American Life has been initiated. Those of us who enjoy creative writing will find their place in the Creative Writing course. In this class creative and directed 1se of the imagination is stressed. Our English department strives to teach students to think clearly, and tries to instill in them a balanced sense of values. The aim is not only to provide students with an understanding of their language, but also to help make them be the better edu- cated and well-informed citizens of tomorrow. jiri! FRANK D.

This department is equipped with the most modern machines and has excellent teachers to turn the inexperienced student into a capable and efficient businessman. Through the encouragement of the teachers and councilors the student soon finds himself learning how to keep books, type, take shorthand, and operate the most complex machines found in a modern office. In the hall of Bartlett a small company could almost be founded. There are the future secretaries taking shorthand and typing, and the future accountants keeping long books and ledgers that are found in any office. We are the future businessmen and, through the excellent instruc- tion of the faculty, we should be capable of carrying on the world's business in an efiicient manner. 38 'll Dr Dyer on one of hir weekly rfifitf to NLI-IS.

This phrase has been an annoying part of our gym classes since they started with the completion of the annex two years ago. A variety of sports including basketball, volley ball, badminton, and football are part of the physical exercises which vary according to the seasons. Besides the physical exertion required, mental work is also assigned to the underclassmen. Essays are required on the various organs of the body and their functions. Intramural sports competition is carried on, according to the season, in each of the various sports, between freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors during spare and activity periods. The seniors leave the school without having broken the "sound barrierf, Don t tickle me, please." TESTING GROUNDS The restricted area in the C300's is the testing grounds of the Homemaking Department. Here the principles of cooking, sewing, and personal grooming are inculcated daily. The heavenly odors which pervade the Chapman building each morning attest to the quality of the feminine culinary art. But reputedly the best chefs are of the masculine gender. The girls, dexterity with a needle, as evidenced by the full length evening gowns produced, is certainly to be envied. But again most of the leading fashion experts and creators are the male of the species. The very attractive results of the good grooming classes are readily apparent to the student body. Here the men are at a disadvantage, for "There is nothing quite like a dame." I ilii A VIRGINIA CAREY IDA C. CROSS BESSIE I. FOOKS I-Iomemaking I-Iomemaking Homemaking ll t D.

With the completion of the new annex, the school added to its facilities a large, well-equipped, and well-staffed cafeteria which offered the student body a good variety in its hot lunch program. Another group that served us well and which is indespensable to the functioning of the school is the maintenance staff. After putting up with the many problems created by the new construction work and the consolidation of our high schools, the custodial staff can finally say that their problems have been' lessened to a great degree. r"""' '4-c S f . . .1 Anna Ennis, Michael O'Connell, George Hoare, Richard Winslow.

FRESHMEN New London High School has had a brief history but the class of '58 has already written several chapters which will be hard to duplicate. From the very nrst day, September 7, 1954, we have proved that this, the largest incoming class at New London High, was ready, willing and able to take our place in the school com- munity. At the start the X's of algebra, the uma, amare of Latin and the pro's and conis of social studies were certainly the brass rings for the New London High merry-go-round. Upon mastering these we were established, but in this carousel of school life, we were soon in- troduced to extracurricular activities. Our class- mates soon earned positions in various school clubs and sport programs. We found that school could mean more to us than just studies. It became a place where we could share our in- terests and hobbies with others who held the same enthusiasm. As the school year drew to a close we knew in retrospect, that the class of '58 had fulhlled its expectations and had qualified for its sopho- more year. 48 F Freshman Class Ofiicers are, front row: Antoinette Vara, Treasurerg Louise Chatterton, Secretary.

New Experiences Extracurricular activities have enlivened our freshman year from the noise of our first rally to the excitement of the final dance. Shortly after the opening of school the student gov- ernment ofiicials from the upper classes decided we were ready to organize as a unit. This meant a class election.

Then, there was that never-to-be-forgotten clay when our freshman team outwitted the sophomores in the gram- mar quiz. With the winter season - and its snow and its skating parties -- there came the sudden realization that cham- pions might be in the making. For our undefeated fresh- man basketball team had swept aside all other rivals and we visualized, in the not too distant future, another New England Championship with the Class of '58 in the key role. Baseball, the Variety Show, the contest play, the Spring formal - all of these were vitally new experiences which climaxed our first year at NLHS.

SOPHCMORES To many of us it feels as if little time has passed since we made our first appearance at NLHS. As the grammar school look faded from our faces, we real- ized how quickly the time had flown. Awakened to new ideas in a new phase of life, the "wise fools" no longer remained fools. New friends, new subjects, new challenges and tasks have made women of girls, men of boys. The sophomore class started the new school year by being well represented on the football squad, in dramatics, choral groups, instrumental groups, cross country team and publications. All these activities felt the ambition, drive and capabilities of the soph- omores. There is good reason to believe that our class is capable of new records and higher goals than any attained before. The next two years will shape the future courses of our lives down every pathway, Striving to be better citizens of our school and country, we will prove our class worthy of. all the honors it receives!

On the gridiron, Coach Harlan Sturgis depended a great deal on a strong sophomore unit which indicates that this group should place many on next year's squad.

Shortly thereafter we gave up our nicknames and were known as Miss or Mr. So-and-So. We soon surprised the upperclass- men by bravely and daringly taking part in all the school activities including dramatics and music. We were out to get our high school education and willing to help make these four years the most pleasurable and profitable years of our lives. 'and Vx -' ffbiiitiw .

The school has organ- ized a well rounded activity program to fit the taste of the majority and through these activi- ties has developed talent in different Helds. We should like, however, to pay tribute to two groups unique to New London High School, the Variety Show group and the Montrealers. Although our friends may seem reserved in school, their hidden talent comes to light in the field of entertainment. The Variety Show, an event anxiously awaited by the student body, gives all students an opportunity to display their talents. Another hand-picked group in NLHS is the Montrealers. Every February, a party travels northward to Montreal in order to observe the French habitants. These students not only enjoy a balanced activity program but also acquire a better understanding of 'the French people by observing their habits and customs.

KING FOR A SEASUN Deligeorger charger around left emi ar leammater offer perfecl ifzferfeirence. 78 With one of the toughest schedules in years the New London High School football team under Coach Harlan Sturgis and Ass't Coach Earl Lambert registered a mediocre seasonal record of three wins while losing six. The inexperienced Whalers faced Stam- ford, the 1953 state grid champs, in their inaugural contestg and, lost by a 20-0 score. The much heavier Black Knights received stiff resistance from a game New London eleven for the first three quarters, but went on to score 14 points in the final quarter against an out-manned Whaler team. In their second game, the Whalers were pitted against the 1954 grid champs, Notre Dame High School of West Haven, and lost by a 32-6 margin. The Green Knights showed tremendous power, and scored in every quarter. Nick Pietrosante, all-state back spearheaded the Notre Dame game scored two touchdowns on long runs. john Contoulis scored the first New London touchdown of the year on a short line plunge. The Whalers took to the winning road in their next game, defeating Hartford Pub- lic by a 6.0 difference. Billy O'Donnell scored the only touchdown of the game on a short run. The Owls gave New London a real scare on the last play of the game. They scored what seemed to be the tying touchdown, but it was nullified by an off- side infraction. john Deligeorges and jim Epps played outstandingly for the Whalers to insure the triumph. In a heart-breaking 6-O loss the Whalers were beaten by Weaver on a touchdown scored in the last two minutes of play. New London completely out-played Weaver throughout the battle, but never could put up a sustained drive for a tally. The Whaler line sparked by Jimmy Sullivan, George Mullen, Billy Hoss, Ed Dimmock and Al Constantine earned the lion share of the credit for their Hne play. Hard luck continued to plague the New London eleven in their next contest against Hartford Bulkeley which they lost by a 14- 12 difference. The Whalers led throughout the game on touchdowns by Billy O'Don- nell and John Deligeorges. With four min- utes left in the game and New London hav- ing a 12-O leadg the Maroons, in story-book fashion, scored two touchdowns and added the extra - in the last four minutes of play. George Vartenigian of Bulkeley scored the final tally of the day with 30 seconds left in the game on a brilliant 92 yard runback of a New London punt. The Golden Hurricanes of New Britain administered the worst beating of the sea- son to New London whitewashing them 35-0. Nothing went right for the Whalers on this rainy Saturday, as the New Britain backs tore the New London defense to shreds scoring 5 T.D.'s. New London with hope of salvaging something out of the season defeated winless Windham 18-15. New London struck early in the game scoring 12 points in the first five minutes of play on a 61 yard run by O'Donnell and short plunge by Contoulis. The Whippets racked up 15 points against the second stringers, and took the lead from the Whalers with four minutes left in the game. A determined New London team then proceeded to march 50 yards in eight plays, climaxed by a touchdown scoring quarterback sneak by Richie Conover. O'Donnell played a fine game with two touchdowns he scored on long runs being called back on penalties. In the much awaited game with our cross-river rivals, Fitch, the Whalers were scalped by the aggressive Groton team 15-0. Fitch possessing a powerful backfield, and strong blocking line bottled up the New London offense all afternoon. Also, numer- ous infractions against the Whaling City team hurt their chances for victory. For the Whalers Richie Conover, Tony Papalia, George Woodworth, George Mullen, Al Constantine, and Ed Dimmock played out- standing games in a losing cause. Q J 'sw --- as 2 E 154615. ei ey A az ..

JINX BROKEN IN In the final game of the season, New London faced once again our traditional rivals Norwich Free Academy on the NFA gridiron, It was in this game that the Whal- ers atoned for their previous play by wal- loping the out-played Wildcats by a 27-6 margin, Co-Capt. john Deligeorges paced the team, scoring three touchdowns in the first half, and in addition played a tremen- dous defensive game staving off many Nor- wich threats. Billy O'Donnell scored the other New London tally by stealing the pig- skin from a Norwich ball carrier, and gal- loping 59 yards to paydirt. The game marked the first time this year that New London was able to kick extra-points, and this was performed admirably by C0-Capt. jimmy Sullivan who booted three extra- points. The Whalers were also aided by quarterback Richie Conover who called a "whale" of a game. The New London de- fense was sparked by Al Constantine, jim Wzltterstnn, Tony Papalia, George Wood- worth, and Ed Dimmock.

HARRIERS BETTER LAST YEAR'S RECORD Once again the Cross-Country team of New Lon- don High School under Coach Mal Greenaway turned in an outstanding seasonal record, going undefeated in four dual meets, placing third in the CIAC Sec- tional Meet, placing second in the State X-Country meet, and finishing 12th in the New England Cham- pionship Meet. In the first meet of the season the Whalers downed Norwich 23-52 with Norm Higgins, ace Whaler runner, breaking the NFA course record by 13 sec- onds. Running on the home course for the first time New London shut out Hartford Public by a perfect score 15-40. Higgins again led the pack followed closely by Pat Baldwin, Ken Maclntyre, Bob Eberle, Bill Burdick, and Charlie Wood who sewed up the next five places. Against Windham, Norm Higgins broke the Coast Guard Course record by one second which was held previously by Johnny Kelly, one of the country's for- most runners and a former pupil of Coach Green- away. New London won by the lop-sided score of 19-36. In the final dual meet of the season New London defeated NFA once again by a 23-52 margin. Higgins maintained his string of finishing first in every dual meet by earning the number 1 spot. Baldwin, Wood, and Eberle captured the 5, 4, and 5 spots in the race.

Although the team finished a disap- pointing third in the CIAC Sectional Meet at Storrs, the Jayvee team for the second year in succession copped first prize. For the varsity Higgins, Baldwin, and Eberle led the Whalers across the finish line. ln the State Meet at Wesleyan the hill- dales pulled a complete reversal of form and finished second a scant 2 points be- hind the winners, Manchester High. New London's first three men were Higgins, Baldwin, and Maclntyre. In the New England Meet the Whalers finished 12th and once again Higgins paced the New London team finishing 21st in a field of over 250 runners. C. Wood ftmim every muscle for NLHS.

COUNCIL ACTS ON SCHOOL PROBLEMS The Student Council is now in its fourth year as an or- ganization. Week after week the Council is on the job being of service to the school. Keeping members "on the ball" is faculty adviser Mr. Richard F. Snape. The council, under the leadership of Lois Sill, studies and solves many school prob- lems. Some accomplishments of the year are the organization of a School Assembly Committee, which plans and supervises school assembliesg the placing of suggestion boxes through- out the schoolg selection and sale of NLHS book covers and decalsg a radio broadcast over WNLC of a Student Council meeting showing how high school students can take over re- sponsibilityg and serving as hosts for a Regional meeting for the schools of Eastern Connecticut. In addition the council earns money for the Student Activity Fund in various ways, as by the "get-acquainted' dance at the beginning of the year and the annual girl-ask-boy dance, "Spinster Spreef' The Marshal Squad is an established link in the chain of student council activities. Regulating traflic in the corridors and conducting campus clean up programs are regular projects for these green-starred "sheriffs." Student Council ojicerr: G. Woodworth, 'I'rearurer,' M.

In addition, the band plays at school assemblies, concerts, and suchlocal parades as the Armistice and Memorial Day parades. The music played by the band is of considerable variety. For example, at one pep rally the band played the "bunny hop" as a novelty feature. A few months later, at a concert, they played a well-known concert march. The band is the reward of two or three years of practice during school hours. The aspiring musician begins with the Intermediate Band and reaches the pinnacle of success when he is accepted into the Sen- ior Band. The New London High School Band is an integral part of the school and the student's life. As it con- tinues to grow in excellence, it will always be con- sidered an important wheel in the hub of NLHS activities. Our Color Guard - I. Sweeney, A. Woodford, R Connolly and P. Vermw.

After much thought the staff decides on the "seasons" as the theme for this year's book. Then begins the hel- ter skelter rushing of the editors trying to fit all copy and pictures of school life to the theme.

One of the largest groups in our school is the Gl. Club. This group consists of three divisions: The Sei ior Choir, The Girls' Glee Club, and the Freshmz Choir. All are equally important to the musical pri gram at NLHS. A variety of musical styles are a tempted by these vocal groups, including popula classical and spiritual music. The choir, a mixed group of selected voices, is tl main unit of the vocal department. Important Cho activities include singing at the state and Ne England festivals, at assemblies, and at local publ functions. As an added attraction this year, the cho presented an operetta, "Trial by Jury." Considerably smaller than the choir, the Girls' Glt Club is a semi-selective group. Participating in sta: festivals and PTA assemblies are among its activitie The third group, the Freshman Chorus, is strictl an underclass activity. This group, composed of bot boys and girls, is open to all freshman students shovs ing an interest in choral music.

Its purpose is to produce plays worthy of presentation by the school with the highest possible artistic standards. Students who par- ticipate actively in the Dramatic Club get the chance to become actors, directors, promptors, stage managers, elec- tricians, stage crew members, publicity and house man- agers and play-bill editors. Under the expert direction of. Frank D. Robins, the group produces six plays an- l 8 li? Picfured here are the curiom inmatey of nually, ranging from one-act plays for the drama festival to the conventional three-act presentations. The first presentation this year was "The Curious Savage," a comedy by John Patrick. The play takes place in an institution called the Cloisters, where the very wealthy Mrs. Savage is sent by her selfish children. Dur- ing the course of the play, the Savages try to wheedle the family riches from their mother.

Behind the Scene Activities with the actors are the stage properties crew, who provide props and backdrops for the plays. This material they made themselves under the direction of Charles Clement. With the aid of Albin K. Kayrukstis, the electrical crew took charge of the lighting and sound effects. Also under the guidance of Mr. Kayrukstis is the make-up crew which has the responsi- bility of changing student features to fit the part. The cos- tume committee, recently formed by Wanda E. Onifer, makes most of the costumes for the NLHS performances. An integral part of every dramatic presentation is the Playbill, which under the leadership of editor-in-chief William Barrs, gives each performance the "Broadway touch."

Thespians are elected each year from among those actors and crew members who have earned the ten points on the basis of effort, initiative and results. All these combinations prove the old geometric adage "the whole equals the sum of its parts," and further proves that the dramatists of NLHS believe homework or not, the' show must go on. .

SAFETY FIRST A postcard is all a Rifle Club member needs to complete his schedule for the year because the rifle club enters their target scorings in country-wide contests by mailing their scores on postcards to member schools for judging. The system is on a competitive basis for schools all over the U. S. participating in these contests. Postal matches, however, are a poor substitute for shoulder to shoulder matches. On the firing line - R. Patton, E. Schulty, W. Kerr. New Practice Range In the very near future members will enjoy - the new practice range which is being built on campus. Althoughbthis range will not meet ac- 4, tual match requirements, it will be a time saver and a convenience to the team. The club constantly stresses the proper care and use of firearms.

In addition to inter-group discussions, the club's activities include forums and debates with other schools and a trip to the United Nations. The aim of the newly formed Business Club is to pro- mote a better understanding and insight on the workings of the business world. Through informal discussions with New London business men, members learn the require- ments for various jobs, and how best to prepare them- selves in high school. Building model planes, cars, boats keeping stamp collections are a few of the projects which make the Hobby Club, a newcomer to the family of clubs at NLHS, so in- teresting.

Al- though Coach O,Brien was constantly looking for a winning combination, the team displayed an incon- sistancy that made it the first NLHS team not to win a berth in the Class L tournament. In the inaugural contesttof the season the Whalers bowed to an experienced Westerly team 48-42. The Whalers found the winning way in their second game defeating Sacred Heart of Waterbury, 63-60. Epps sank 23 points and clinched the game for NLHS with a four point spree in the last 50 seconds. Our cagers won the game from the foul stripe as they outhit the Crusaders 21-10. In their next encounter the Whalers whipped an outmanned Fitch High School Eve 61-39. In a tense struggle the Whalers outlasted the Windham Whip- pets to gain a 52-49 verdict. Leading New London in a game tied on thirteen different occasions were co-captains Epps and DeVivo who both hit in double figures. The Whalers kept their short win streak alive when they defeated the Alumni 71-36. Bill Elfenbien, Duke Avery, and jimmy Epps led NLHS. The Alumni's perennial favorites, Babe Pier and Terry Brennan, once again kept the crowd "in stitches" over their zany court antics. l' 1' , 1 'Hina-...., 1 A4 Ll, iii? fi?

Little Billy Harmon staged a brilliant shooting exhibition in a losing effort. The Whaling City lads, in a brilliant upset, defeated Stonington in a return match, 59-43. The O,Brienmen found the winning way in an exciting 71-56 win over Windham. Following up this impressive win, the cagers knocked off Sacred Heart 80-64. Sophomore john Contoulis racked up 28 points and was an invaluable aid under the boards, also helping the cause were -Epps with 24 points and Harmon with 13 points. In a tense battle the Whalers atoned for an early season defeat by edging Manchester 73-68. In a final game they were faced with a "must" win if they wished to compete in the Class L tournament, but East Hartford dealt the Whal- ers a stinging blow as they upset them, 57-47.

RAIN HAMPERS TEAM Once again the New London High School baseball team, under the able tutelage of Coach jack Conway, posted a winning season record of 7 wins and 4 losses. The Whalers lacked depth, as only Co-Capts. Woody Woodworth, Art DeWolf and joe Giordano were varsity holdovers from the previous season. In addition to the lack of veteran ballplayers, the diamond men were hampered constantly in the early part of the season by poor weather. New London opened the schedule in a successful manner by edging Windham 6-5 with 2 runs in the ninth inning. Duke Avery pitched 5 innings of relief to gain the win. Bob Andrioli paced the offensive attack for the Whalers blasting out 3 hits, one a 350 foot home-run. In their second encounter the Whalers walloped the Alumni 12-5. Charlie Petchark, of the New Lon- don mound corps, pitched the distance and gained the win. Terry Fraser, Jim Riordan, Art DeWolf, and George Woodworth each gathened two hits to lead the offensive punch for New London. Terry watcher that ball well. T00 bmi D4-ye, Squad Posts 7-4 Record Paul Scirpo, of Woodrow Wilson, hurled brilliant five-hit ball to hand the Whalers their first loss, 5-1. The only consolation for the Whalers was the fine relief pitching of Avery, who pitched four and a third innings of hitless, runless ball. New London, aided by the five-hit pitching of fast- balling Charlie Petchark, checked our "cross-river" rivals Fitch by a 14-6 count. Petchark helped his own cause by blasting out four base hits. Paul Bongo pitched and batted the Whalers to a 14-2 victory over the Stonington Bears in their next scheduled game.

In a bitterly contested extra-inning game Westerly defeated New London '4-2, scoring two runs in the tenth. Until that time Duke Avery and Bill Sullivan hitched up in a brilliant mound duel that was ended with a two-run outburst in the tenth by the Bulldogs. In their second game of the season against Fitch the Whalers triumph by a 7-1 margin. Petchark was given credit for the wing joe Giordano's stick insured the victory. Against arch-rival Norwich Free Academy the Whalers upset the Wildcats 11-5. New London scored 10 runs in the first three innings on the hitting of Angie DeVivo, Riordan, and Giordano. Avery once again pitched brilliant six innings of relief, giving up only one run. ln a return engagement with Windham the Whal- ers were edged 4-3 in a 10 inning game. Bongo started for New London but was knocked out in the second inning. Petchark pitched 8 runless innings before giving up the winning run in the tenth. Petchark pitched a nifty five-hit shut-out over Ston- ington 8-0. Fraser and Woodworth paced the New London offensive attack.

HARRIERS HA VE HOT-COLD SEASON ff The New London High track team experienced a fair season as they won one dual meet and one triangu- lar meet, while losing one dual and triangular meet. The team, coached by Malcom Greenaway, was hindered by the lack of veteran performers, but despite this ob- stacle Coach Greenaway was able to put up a fine NLHS aggregation. In their first meet the Whalers were soundly beaten by a fine Fitch team 70 and two-fifths to 28 and three- fifths. New London's ace runner Norm Higgins took the one-mile event, Ed Siff captured the first place in the shot-put, and jim Geaglone with Ronnie Grippo were awarded first place in the high jump. For the victorious Fitch team, Ronnie Hughes captured first place in the 100 and 220 yard dashes. In a complete reversal of form, the Whaler trackmen captured the triangular meet at Storrs with 60 points to 31 for Hartford Bulkeley and 28 for Windham. New London earned 8 first places out of a possible 12. In- dividuals who took first places were Bob Aikens, Joe Impelletire, Tom Cavanaugh, Norm Higgins, Bob Moore, Ed Sifi, Al Annabalini. The Whalers also took the 880 yard relay run. In a closely contested dual meet with Stonington, the Whalers were edged 55-44. New London was sparked by john McNeil, who took the 100 and 200 yard dashes, Norm Higgins, who won first place in the mile eventg and Tom Cavanaugh, who captured first place in the broad jump contest.

THREE CHEERS FOR OUR Three cheers for the cheerleaders and the Baton Club! Without them where would our team be? A quick, snappy T-E-A-M and a few prancing leaps and skips from the girls in green could change the picture: the spirits of the team and the student body are lifted, the score goes up, and we are again victorious. At foot- ball and at basketball games, at home or away, the vivacious girls can be seen boosting morale in their colorful outfits of green and gold. Con- nected with the cheerleaders is the Pep Squad, made up of mostly freshman and sophomore girls. These unclerclassmen are chosen after a series of tryouts and early in May are given a chance to compete for the cheering position of outgoing seniors. Pep and Cheer - Our rpecialty.

We, the class of 1955, entered New London High amid the clang of hammers and the whine of the buzz saws. We tramped through the freshly painted halls, stepping cautiously over planks and plaster boards. At times we lost our way and had to ask the nearest teacher for directions, only to have him reply that he too was lost. As Freshmen we gradually became accustomed to life at NLHS. The Compass became the oflicial school paper and the Clipper was chosen as the name for the new yearbook. The outstanding quality of these publications gave an indication of the potential of the new school sys- tem, and as the months passed we were proven cot- rect in our assumptions: that a new institution with high educational standards had been established. Lois Sift assisted by B. Bragaw, N. Wells, and M. Bishop pays tribute to an educator and patriot. F. Winkler, M. Piscatello, C. Smith and S. O'Brien - Do their part on the "New Lon- don Schools On the Air" Pro- gram. Then, in our second year, as the new struc- ture gradually began to take shape the new ad- dition became a reality. In 1953, our basketball team won the New Billy Gardner, a member of the Giants, World Series Champions, and a gradu- ate of our school, receives a warm hand- shake Mayor and the key to the city from Duggan. ,V-. England Championship title. This event was definitely the highlight of the school year. Time marched on and we became Juniors. In january we moved into the new classrooms. We began to realize our superiority - at least over the underclassmen - as we began to take over various posts of responsibility around school. Our Senior year, the final stage in our high school life, found many of our classmates hold- ing the most important positions in the school. june and graduation - we had finally achieved our goals.

Evelyn U A CODE OF ETHICS The world of sports possesses a code of ethics which, if adopted by mankind as a code of living, would make our pattern of life much more significant and certainly happier. For sports promote fair play, competitive spirit and teamwork. All important parts of the sports- manis code are valuable assets for any individual striving for success in life. Sportsmen, more so than others, possess an excellent sense of humor, an intangible something which gives enlightenment and sparkle to their lives. Above all it develops a sense of humor, a valuable treasure which every individual should possess, and which seems in too many cases lost in the complexities of our present society. Sports have their serious moments too, teaching the individuals to take a few minutes during the daily routine to reflect a bit on the serious side of existence. Thus, a fine balance is achieved in the emotional life of an athlete. ff. The mainstays of the '55 football team - Co-Captains James Sullivan and John Deligeorges.

U3 B A sportsman learns to drive and drive toward the ultimate goal of success. So, too, when we leave behind memorable days here at New London High School and go out into the vast world to begin our struggle for existence, we must remember the motto of the Sportsman-"never my die" and drive on relentlessly, ever-trying, ever-perservering to attain the seemingly insurmountable goals until finally, through our efforts, we reach the summitg happiness, health and prosperity. , Yes, sports are indicative of the American way of life, for they, too, demonstrate the basic principles of democracy. They in- clude activities in which an athlete is judged on the basis of his ability, not on his race, color or creed. So, won't you, and you, 'try to remember the oft-quoted lines: "A betler .rport today maker cz better American tomorrow." 135 la, I cf' K ll 'vglxclella L. Gauthier George C. Geer john.G.

Hudson 138 THE BEGINNING An Education Begins Only When Oiher Things End He had never been aware before. For the first time in his life, he was waking up. Like all wakers, it was confusing. And since the sleep had been in his mind, it was more than confusing-it was discouraging. His mind has always been a rover, skipping from idea to idea. Now came the time, inevitable and certain, for him to put aside the things of childhood - mental as well as physical. He still rebelled against scholarship and all its trappings. But, rebel or not, he was waking up, and he knew it. Slowly and with great reluctance to admit it, he was beginning to enjoy his problems and his work. Like a child when a stranger offers a gift, he moved backward and forward at once. The day he finished the first paper he had ever been proud of-one that really said something-was at once the happiest and most satisfying all year. He was at last aware and that is the departure point for any education that is one. .cf Carol J. Hume 55 ,fs Q. A fi , Richard W. -lean I ..f ,..r f Richard A. johnson i i,.h C tl I f Z William E.

Members of our class held the positions of authority in student government, many were captains of various teams, and several led their respective groups in such a manner as to bring not only honor to themselves but to New London High. The satisfaction which came from responsibility was great. Wfe came in closer contact with members of the faculty and with the school administrators. Both groups endeavored not only to teach us academic and mechanical ,skills, but also how to work together, how to cooperate lfully, and thus derive a great deal of pleasure from a job well done.

Webster defines the word Jerfion as the sitting together of a group of individuals, as for the transaction of business-in this case to pass the bull. A bull session was an informal education in itself. Through these enlightening sessions we found out our friends' interests, we relaxed, we got to air our views, and, most of all, we discussed our favorite subject-girls -or boys. Through the years the habits and traditions of high school groups have changed but one thing has survived. The bull session will always remain the traditional sym- bol of scholastic groups as long as there is an item of common interest-the opposite sex.-Say joe, did I ever tell you about tba! girl . . .

An Important Stage In Our Life Has Passed As we leave the environs of New London High School, where we spent four years developing the mind and mold- ing the character to the end that we might function loyally and well in our democratic society, we realize that an important stage in our life has been passed. The first reaction is one of sudden lightness, of relief from responsibility. We are temporarily aimless. Of course the world awaits our talents, but now we want pleasure. After all, we are young. And we would rest before the next hard pull. But part of our education at NLH included a height- ened realization that, in a way, all the world is a stage on which each must play his part. We ask: "What is the role we are to play? What is the role I want to play in life's drama?" With this thought we turn again to the ideals of service, determination, and responsibility. There is even a sense of excitement as we face the prospect of new ex- periences. There are many things to be learned, to be done. We go on. Yes, we look back for a moment. But we go on. 153 3 - vue A, Y SENIOR DIRECTORY 6 ADCOCK, WALTER T. "Walt" Rifle Club 4. ADELMAN, BERYL J.

Thus she signalled that she was on course, headed towards tomorrow, powered by the fuel of tomorrow, nuclear power. The Nautilus was making history as she sailed into the future. "Towards tomorrow" might well be the motto of all graduates this year. Like the Nautilus, the graduates are heading for a future affected by atomic power in one way or another. Some graduates will be working with controlled atomic power, all will re- ceive the benefits of controlled atomic power. The change-over to an atomic world will not be sudden, but now that the change has started with the appli- cation of nuclear power to ship propulsion, the change will be one of steady progress. Steady progress has always been a characteristic of Electric Boat from the time it built the USS Holland, the Navy's first submarine, to the USS Nautilus, the Navy's first atomic powered submarine. For more than half a century EB engineers, designers and sub- marine builders have been looking towards tomorrow. That steady progress has paid dividends because the Nautilus now leads the world into the atomic future. A dependable product produced by a dependable firm.
