A 9 We, the senior class of New London High dedicate this volume
of the yearbook in memory of john 1. Casey. 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." .

WE PROUDLY PRESENT
What stirs us more than a memory? 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
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.

THE FIRST SIGNS UF SPRING
April--that enchanted month when the first signs
of spring begin to appear. 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.

PLANNING AHEAD FOR BETTER SCHOOLS
During the four years we have spent at NLHS we have
seen evidence that our school system is continually improving.
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.
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
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.

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.

THE WORLD AROUND US
In the scarred but hallowed halls of Bartlett, our school's science
department can be found going full blast. 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.

The social studies instructors aim to increase the
students perception of the workings of his govern-
ment, national, state and local. In the course entitled
Problems of Democracy, pupils review the develop-
ment of and solutions of social problems and how
they apply to our present day world. 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. They are an-
other aid in preparing us to take our roles as the
future citizens of a great democracy.

The basic aims of the Art Department are to teach the
relationship of color, style and form to mans' environ-
mentg thus giving the student a more sympathetic per-
spective of life.
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

Man, through the ages, has sought to extract the essence of
life and set it down in words. 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-
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.

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.

Cheerleaders Play Day
"All right! Once around the gym . . 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
Don t tickle me, please."
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."

THEY SERVE US WELL
Important to the function of New London High
School are the Custodial and Cafeteria Staffs.
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.

Freshmen get their first look at NLHS.
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-
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
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-

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-
There is good reason to believe that our class is
capable of new records and higher goals than any
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!

At NLHS, Sophomores without a doubt
show the most school spirit, School ollicials
have recognized their ability and will to work
by permitting them to engage in all varsity
sports, This year more than at any other time,
the sophomores have played a prominent role
in athletics. 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. The
cross-country team of Coach Malcolm Green-
away has many capable "sophs" who should
make that perennially strong team even strong-
er. Obviously the Sophomores are coming into

The Baton Club members strive for perfec-
tion. Each day during fifth period they practice
in order to perfect drills which are used for
football games, parades, and assemblies. When
they perform on the football field, they not only
hold the interest and attention of their own
student body but also that of their opponents
by their trick formations and novelty steps.
The highlight of the school year is the ban-
quet with a traditional spaghetti dinner. It fea-
tures the presentation of letters to veteran
twirlers and the intiation of new members.

In September, 1952, we, the present junior class,
entered the doors to New London High School, timid
at the thought of being thrown into the seemingly
bewildering ways of a high school. 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.

EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES PLAY A
it i?WQ,f ,
Extracurricular activities play a major part
in our high school lives. 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
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.

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
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
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-
john Deligeorges and jim Epps played
outstandingly for the Whalers to insure the
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.

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.

next five places.

A NEW LOOK FOR '55
The place - the pressroom. The time - October.
The reason - a "new look" for the '55 Clipper. 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.
Theme, biographies, histories, drawings by Maggie
Nelson and Sallie Serafin, photographs and all the re-
quisites are incorporated in an all new 'and sparkling
layout. Stewart Hoffheins, Mary Shurts, Robert
Woodford, sort, record, file, and arrange senior biog-

to arrange the class histories, forward, faculty section

One of the largest groups in our school is the Gl.

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."

carefully, too, for it will affect not only the

also the music to be played. Appropriate deco-

The Dramatic Club is the main medium for all thea-
trical activities on the NLHS campus. 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-
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. Holding lead roles
for the November 21-22 performance were Brenda

with the actors are the stage properties crew, who provide

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."

The Dramatic Club is allied with the National Thespian
Society of which New London High School is Troupe 1169.
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. .

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.

for shoulder to shoulder matches.

TOURNAMENT CHANCES FADE AFTER HEART-
Eppr rink: one.
The 1954-55 Whaler basketball team registered a
fair season record, winning 10 and losing 9. 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.
Two points for Cleary and NLHS. D6Vi1!0 trying for a 3 pointer.
Cagers Follow Up Impressive Win
In another heart-breaking tilt NLHS dropped a one- THE SEASON
point decision to NFA 59-58. 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.

DIAMONDMEN HAVE SUCCESSFUL SEASON
The Duke scorer.
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
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.

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.

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
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.
The Whalers closed out their season with a 2-1
loss to Norwich Free Academy. The game was won
in the tenth inning by the Wildcats after Duke Avery
went the entire rout.

HARRIERS HA VE HOT-COLD
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
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
Pep and Cheer - Our rpecialty.

ditions are interpretations of the "bunny hop"

GOALS ACCOMPLISHED-N0 MORE FOR US AT NLH
I -5.1 .Q L53
Four years ago, the New London Board of Educa-
tion adopted the plan for the consolidation of the
city's secondary school system and New London High
School was born.
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
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.

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
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.

A BETTER TOMORROW? 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."

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.

lin JOB WELL DONE
1 . .
ogyffinal year it was apparent that our positions
as se ,fs involved many responsibilities, The compensa-
ri ay in the fact that we were more and more appreciated
by the school.
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
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. This lesson was undoubtedly the most im-
portant part of our education, I ' I

THE BULL SESSION
And then there were those bull sessions!
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
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 . . .

SING HER PRAISE FROM SEA T0 SHINING SEA.
Natalie Lubchansky, Editor-in-Chief of The Compass, reads
over some of her words in print.
An Important Stage In Our Life
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
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.

USS Nautilus "Underway on nuclear power"
When the USS Nautilus sailed on her maiden voyage
from the wet dock of the Electric Boat Division of
General Dynamics Corporation on January 17, 1955,
she sent the message UNDERWAY ON NUCLEAR
POWER. 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.
